Summer ramble SUMMER by the Sea returns to the Victorian coastline in January with 300 events at 80 places including Hastings, Somers, Balnarring Beach and Point Leo. The festival is run by Coastcare, a division of the Department of Sustainability and Environment, using local experts. Coastcare’s Phillip Wierzbowski said the events included rockpool rambles, kayak adventures, marine monitoring, nature walks, geology adventures and snorkelling safaris. “The program aims to teach people of all ages about marine conservation, making it fun, safe and active,” he said. Activities in Hastings include a walk along Warringine Park boardwalk, looking at birds and wildlife, and a Coastcare program about how to care for the environment on 17 January. The boardwalk activity is on three Tuesdays from 3 January. Midnight walks at Somers are on Thursdays 12 and 19 January. Rockpool rambles are at Balnarring Beach on Wednesday 4 January and Point Leo on Friday 6 January. Activities at other beaches in the region include Phillip Island, Corinella, Tooradin, Pearcedale and St Andrews Beach on Western Port, and Seaford, Frankston, Mornington, Dromana, Rosebud, Rye, Blairgowrie, Sorrento and Portsea on Port Phillip.

A COP THAT CARES

...but he’s seen as dated and one-dimensional By Cameron McCullough POLITICIANS and community leaders have rallied behind a former police officer’s efforts to rejoin Victoria Police. Former Hastings police sergeant Andrew Brady’s hopes of re-entering the police force appeared to have been dashed after an official report labelled

his approach to policing as dated and one-dimensional. The only option now open to Mr Brady, who spent nearly a quarter of a century in the force before leaving in 2007, is to rejoin as a recruit, do the full 33-week course, and be eligible for promotion to senior constable after four years. Hasting MP Neale Burgess emailed

Mr Brady to say that he had spoken with Police Minister Peter Ryan “and your case is going to be raised directly with the Chief Commissioner [Ken Lay]”. “I have spoken to police command seeking a review, and I will continue to push the issue” Mr Burgess told The News. Federal MP Greg Hunt described Mr

Brady as “the best and most creative youth worker I have ever seen”. Mr Brady was awarded the Victoria Police Ethical Standards Medal in 1997, a Divisional Commendation in 2005 and was named Mornington Peninsula Shire’s Citizen of the Year in 2008 for services to the community. He hoped his vast experience would have allowed him to re-enter the force

by undergoing a refresher course, rather than the full rookie training. “It is offensive to suggest my 22 years’ service counts for nothing,” he said. Mr Brady gained a reputation for working outside the square in his years of policing at Hastings. Continued Page 6

Four hours to free driver after highway crash FOUR people are recovering in hospital after a two-car collision on Saturday morning on the Western Port Highway south of the Bungower Rd intersection near Somerville. A 39-year-old Hastings man was flown by helicopter ambulance to The Alfred hospital after being trapped for four hours in his Ford ute. The man was placed in an induced coma while emergency crews freed him from the wreckage.

Rescued: Emergency crews spent four hours freeing the driver of a Ford ute after it collided with an Audi sedan near Somerville on Saturday. Top picture Rudy Chitty

He was admitted to hospital in a critical condition with serious injuries to his legs, pelvis and upper body. The head-on collision between the ute and a near-new Audi sedan occurred at about 8.30. It is understood the sedan had been travelling north along the highway as the ute turned left into the highway from the east side of Bungower Rd. The driver of the Audi, a 63-year-old man of Somers, was flown to the Royal

Melbourne Hospital where he is being treated for a broken arm, broken ribs and a broken upper leg. His two female passengers were taken to The Alfred hospital with spinal injuries. One had a broken arm and the other a broken toe. Anyone who saw the accident or has information is asked to call Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000 or Hastings police on 5970 7800.

Peninsula one of 15 police ‘trauma targets’ ONE of the key aims of the Victoria Police operation Summer Stay – running from mid-November to 8 January – is to remove “impaired drivers� from roads. Road Policing Superintendent Neville Taylor said that during this seven-week period last year, 38 people lost their lives on Victorian roads. “We know this a high-risk time for drink driving on our roads,� he said. “Our key message during this summer enforcement campaign is to stay alert, stay sober, stay within the limit and stay alive.� He said the police presence would be boosted in 15 high-risk road trauma areas including the municipalities of Mornington Peninsula, Frankston, Kingston, Casey, Dandenong, Boroondara, Brimbank, Geelong, Glen Eira, Monash, Wyndham, Hume, Whittlesea, Wyndham and Yarra Ranges. “Police will conduct drink and drug-driving testing at all times of day and night. Just don’t risk it,� Superintendent Taylor said. Booze buses would be supported by mobile breath testing sites and numerous satellite vehicles aimed at catching drink drivers taking back roads in a bid to avoid detection. Local police would be joined by State Highway Patrol officers and police from the Road Policing Drug

Drink drivers beware: Police are targeting 15 high-risk road trauma regions this summer including the Mornington Peninsula.

and Alcohol Section (RPDAS). Superintendent Taylor said every police officer in the state would have a focus on road safety as part of Summer Stay. There would be three separate operations in Summer Stay with the first being Operation RAID (Remove All Impaired Drivers). Police in marked and unmarked cars would conduct drink and drug-driving tests, and all types of vehicles would be targeted, he said. “We are now well and truly into the festive time of year and with that comes a heightened risk of drink and

drug driving on our roads. “Every booze bus is a drug bus, and every state highway patrol officer also has the ability to conduct a roadside drug test at any time. “We all know the science behind this. If you drink and drive or take drugs and drive, your chances of being involved in a crash significantly increase.� In 2010, one in every 60 drivers pulled over by police was driving with illicit drugs in their system. “The message is clear, stay sober and stay off drugs. If you can’t do that – then stay off the road.�

CUTTING THE COST OF DIAMONDS!

Silent witnesses: A trail of black rubber plus bright flowers beside the road are the only physical reminders of the events that led to the deaths at Merricks of Mt Martha couple David and Heather Churcher.

Sailing couple dies in tandem tragedy By Keith Platt A FLASH of colour catches a driver’s eye. A closer look reveals bunches of flowers carefully placed at the foot of a power pole. Dark lines running across the bitumen road are the skid marks of heavy duty tyres. They point to where the wheels have left the road, churning up the roadside grass before stopping by some shrubs. Fifty metres away an echidna scurries safely across the road into a blackberry thicket. The quiet rural scene belies the tragic tale behind the scars on the road. Weather will wipe them off the surface, but not the scars that will forever be born in the lives of friends and relatives of David and Heather Churcher, the husband and wife who died on this stretch of road mid-afternoon on Tuesday 6 December. The Churchers, both 55, of Mt Martha, had been enjoying a carefully planned retirement. Taking time off from sailing the world, the couple was back home for Christmas and taking a tandem bike ride on the peninsula’s back roads at Merricks when they were hit by a tip truck. Both died at the scene.

The tip truck driver has told police that he swerved to miss a dog on the road. Senior Sergeant Andy Brockway of Rosebud said on Monday that police were looking for witnesses while preparing a report for the coroner. A dentist by profession and assisted by Heather, David Churcher would put his skills to good use while sailing. Their 13-metre yacht Courtesan was outfitted for him to provide dental treatment, especially to disadvantaged people they met when visiting islands on their travels. In one 15-month trip to the South Pacific in 2006-07 they handed out 500 toothbrushes. A sailor since a young lad, David was a lifelong member of McCrae Yacht Club and had three times helped the current Australian of the Year, Simon McKeon, in the defence of the Little America’s Cup. The Churchers had also earlier this year sailed the Atlantic with two of Mr McKeon’s sons. After storing their latest yacht, the 17-metre Sula, a Discovery 55, at the Norfolk Broads in the UK for the northern hemisphere winter, the Churchers returned to Mt Martha several weeks ago, looking forward to Christmas with family

and New Year’s Eve with friends at the McCrae Yacht Club. A tribute posted on mysailing.com said the couple had “faced many dangers at sea and sailed through some horrible storms”. “As well as offering support to remote countries, the pair also helped to raise thousands of dollars for charities through cycling events. “David and Heather are survived by their two children, Andrew and Jacqui, and will be greatly missed by all at McCrae Yacht Club and their local community.” Through a relative, the children issued a statement saying their parents were “adventurous, caring and loving people living their lives to the fullest … They died together doing what they love. Their loss is devastating to all who knew them and they will be greatly missed.” One family’s memoriam notice summed up the feelings of many: “How could this have happened? They did so many wonderful things for so many people.” Hundreds of mourners attended a memorial service for Heather and David Churcher at Penbank School, Mornington-Tyabb Rd, Moorooduc, on Friday 16 December.

He’s one of the best cops the town has ever seen, but the brass rate him dated and one dimensional

Warriors leader fights for a place on the force Continued from Page 1

FORMER police sergeant Andrew Brady is well known for establishing the Western Port Warriors RecLink football team, which has proved to be highly successful in helping disadvantaged people in the community. He also pioneered other community projects including the Walking School Bus, essay competitions on the dangers of throwing rocks at trains and the importance of bike helmets, giving all Hastings Westpark Primary School preps a Christmas present, and many other community projects. “The idea was to get to kids before they got into trouble, and get them onside. While it proved successful and popular in the community, this kind of policing was not encouraged [by superiors],” Mr Brady said. “The frustrations I felt lead me to taking leave and eventually resigning from the force. “I fully believed that the approach had [now] changed in the force and that my approach may have been more acceptable, but it seems I am wrong.”

While Mr Brady says his motivation for rejoining was to continue to serve the community he loves, the current recommendation means he may have to wait years before being able to return to Hastings. The assessor, Sergeant Philip Bradley, simply stated that “service in a policing jurisdiction for a minimum of four years” would be required to be “eligible for consideration for in-situ promotion to the rank of senior constable”. This is still below the rank of sergeant, which Mr Brady held at the time of his resignation. The assessor stated that Mr Brady’s rank at the time of his resignation was senior constable. There are no guarantees that Mr Brady would be based in Hastings in the four years it would take to reach senior constable. “I can’t rejoin as a rookie,” Mr Brady. “It is akin to them saying they just don’t want me back and flies in the face of the very thing I was trying to achieve.”

Force is the issue: Andrew Brady wants experience to count when he rejoins the Victoria Police.

MPs, civic leaders add their thoughts “While I don’t know the details of Andrew’s police career, I do know that he is the best and most creative youth worker I have ever seen. He would be an asset in any team.” Greg Hunt, Federal MP for Flinders

“I believe he was an outstanding police officer, and he is an outstanding man. Any police force should bend over backwards to have him as one of their members. Neale Burgess, State MP for Hastings “This is a disgrace. Andrew Brady would have to be the best police officer this area has ever seen. If they don’t get him back into the local police force, it will be a huge loss for Hastings and the Western Port region.” David Nelli, past president of Western Port Chamber of Commerce “It is beyond belief that Victoria Police would not take the opportunity to get Andrew Brady back into policing. He was an asset to the community and, from a community policing point of view, was the best we’ve ever had.” Brian Stahl, JP OAM, former Hastings area shire councillor and shire mayor

Shire picks fight on Baxter twin servos By Mike Hast SHIRE councillors have taken on the big boys after voting against twin service centres on the under-constructiion Peninsula Link freeway south of Baxter. The centres, one north-bound and one south-bound, will be built on farming land, and were due to open by early 2013 when the freeway is completed. Plans show each will have a â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;truckiesâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; loungeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;, showers, toilets and laundry; baby changing room, childrenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s playground and picnic area; buildings of about 3000 square metres; parking for 100 cars, four buses, five caravans and 16 trucks; 26 refuelling points for cars and four for trucks; a convenience store, five food or retail shops and a tourist information kiosk; indoor seating for 272 people and outside seating for 52; and about 13 toilets, including one for people with disabilities. On Monday last week, the council voted 7-3 to refuse the application, going against the recommendation of shire planners. Councillors said it would impinge on the green wedge zone, was a â&#x20AC;&#x153;commercial development of excessive scale within the Green Wedgeâ&#x20AC;?, the design and location of the development failed to adequately protect the landscape and environmental values of the Moorooduc flood plain, and it would â&#x20AC;&#x153;have an adverse impact on the amenity of the area with regard to noise, light and visual bulkâ&#x20AC;?. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The proposal will result in the loss of agriculture land in the Green Wedge Zone which cumulatively jeopardises

Holding out: Artistâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s drawing of how one of the twin service centres on Peninsula Link freeway at Baxter would look.

the economic viability of the Mornington Peninsula in terms of agricultural productivity,â&#x20AC;? the decision stated. AA Holdings owns the land, is the builder and will operate the freeway service centres (FSCs). AA Holdingsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; town planner David Hansen he the company disappointed with the decision and the matter would go to the Victorian Civil and Administrative Tribunal, where the company would seek to have the shireâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s decision overturned. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We prepared an appropriate and comprehensive proposal that addressed all issues,â&#x20AC;? he said. The proponent had met a wide range of stakeholders, including seven objectors. Mr Hansen said the shire had received the planning application in May. He was concerned about the long waiting list at the VCAT. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We

had hoped to open the FSCs when the freeway opens in early 2013. It takes about 12 months to build,â&#x20AC;? he said. Mr Hansen said FSCs were allowed in green wedges. In the tribunal, the shire will battle the family-owned AA Holdings, which builds service stations for BP. AA Holdings states on its website that it â&#x20AC;&#x153;is BPâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s largest retail customer in Australia and BPâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s third largest overall customer after BHP [Billiton] and Rio Tintoâ&#x20AC;?. The company, led by Andreas Andrianopoulos, has been building and operating service stations and car washes for more than 40 years. It has twin freeway service centres on the Calder Fwy in Keilor North, Hume Fwy at Wallan and Princes Fwy at Officer. It is constructing twin centres on EastLink tollway near Ferntree

Gully Rd at Scoresby and on the Geelong Bypass at Lovely Banks. Mr Andrianopoulos is active in business politics and made submissions to federal government inquiries into the ill-fated Fuel Watch website â&#x20AC;&#x201C; which was meant to give consumers the best petrol prices, but was blocked by the Senate in November 2008 â&#x20AC;&#x201C; and the recent inquiry into plain cigarette packaging. AA Holdings states it has â&#x20AC;&#x153;dedicated distribution centres and an established network of 50 service stations in Victoriaâ&#x20AC;?. It has service stations in Mt Eliza and Dromana, and car washes in McCrae and Rye. Supporting AA Holdings behind the scenes is Linking Melbourne Authority, the state government body formed to oversee the building of EastLink tollway, the under-construction Penin-

sula Link, and the proposed WestLink, an 18-kilometre freeway connecting the Eastern Fwy and Western Ring Rd. LMA awarded the tender for the Baxter twin servos to AA Holdings about 12 months ago. LMA spokeswoman Erin Coldham said the authority did not want to comment on the council refusal and directed The News to AA Holdings. Another organisation disappointed by the councilâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s decision is BRATPAC â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Baxter Residents and Traders Progress Action Committee. President Peter Baulch said the group had supported the twin servos project from when it was first mooted. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a necessity for people using the freeway as there was nothing between Ringwood, where EastLink starts, and Rosebud at the time it was proposed. Now a service centre is being built at Scoresby.â&#x20AC;? Mr Baulch said there would be no street access from Baxter, so it wouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t take trade from the town, and AA Holdings had a policy that it would employ local people as a priority. The company had stated the centres would employ up to 450 people. He said there would be no major impairment of the environment as â&#x20AC;&#x153;the land has been used as a cow and sheep paddock for many yearsâ&#x20AC;?.

School’s out for summer By Ursula Fenwick SINGING “No more writing, no more books, no more teachers’ dirty looks” was the way we, as children, started our long Christmas holidays. Having been a teacher for many years, I was most surprised to hear my Hastings University of the Third Age (U3A) book club members say, “Do we have to have such a long break?” During this time many of us will be minding grandchildren, great-grandchildren and, in my case, a West Highland terrier posing as a reindeer. Our committee members will be busy moving to 13 Teal Court, our new home in West Park. Members who would like to assist would be welcomed with open arms. We have had an excellent year with several exciting new courses (flower arranging, digital camera workshop, gentle exercise, and Adobe) and our regular programs. New courses for 2012 will include beginners French and we are seeking expressions of interest for mosaics, ceramics, sculpture and pottery. Diabetics Victoria has also offered a five-week course on diabetes, which we will conduct later in Term 1. Most of our tutors and leaders will be returning in 2012, but new leaders and new courses are always welcomed. Anyone who has a hobby or interest they would like to share with others is welcome to run a course. You do not have to be a teacher; just have a good knowledge of your subject. Members are always keen to learn new things. We would like to wish everyone a very happy and peaceful Christmas and new year.

Summer haze: Parks Victoria is warning about the dangers of jumping off piers. Anglers try their luck at Hastings jetty.

Parents urged to end pier jumps PARKS Victoria is urging swimmers not to jump or dive off piers and jetties this summer as warmer weather attracts more people to beaches on Western Port and Port Phillip. “Parents especially should be vigilant to ensure their children are aware of the dangers of jumping and diving from piers,” Parks Victoria chief ranger Graeme Davis said. Diving from piers and jetties is highly dangerous, especially on the bays, where varying tidal and sand movements constantly change the water depths and submerged debris can

pose an unexpected hazard. “Not only is the practice of diving or jumping off piers hazardous to those engaged in the activity, it also puts at risk boat operators attempting to berth and disembark passengers,” he said. “The safety of swimmers who continue to dive from piers despite clear ‘no diving’ signs is of great concern to Parks Victoria. “There are much safer places than piers to enter the water to swim and enjoy the beach.” Every year several people are seriously in-

jured or sometimes die as a result of injuries caused by jumping off piers. “The last thing anyone wants to hear is a story of a fun day by the bay resulting in a severe injury or, even worse, loss of life.” Parks Victoria regularly patrol piers and jetties and has recently upgraded signs at all piers and jetties on Port Phillip and Western Port including clear ‘no diving’ signs.

Memorial for Jack Foy unveiled A MEMORIAL for Jack Foy was unveiled in the Peace Garden at St Maryâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Catholic Primary School last Friday. Jack, aged 13, tragically died when a shade sail he was on gave way at Hastings Westpark Primary School on 8 March 2009. Jack, other members of Hastings Cricket Clubâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s under-15 team and friends were sitting on the shade sail after the team won the premiership earlier that day. Five other teenagers were injured in the accident. All pupils and staff members attended the ceremony, where a mural of the schoolâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s emblem â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Mary with the baby Jesus â&#x20AC;&#x201C; was unveiled as well as a plaque in memory of Jack, who attended the school. Reports of the 2009 accident said paramedics took half an hour to get to the boys because they were blocked by locked gates, which had to be cut open. Jackâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s friends, paramedics and Jackâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s father Pat Foy all tried to resuscitate him. Pat Foy is a former Sydney Swans player and a former captain-coach of Hastings Football Club who took the team to a premiership in 1992. The schoolâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Peace Garden was inspired by the loss of Jack, and construction started last year with the support and donations from school families and local businesses Wickham Glass and Flooring Xtra. It contains many student-made sculptures and totems. Students, parents and staff all had a hand in constructing the memorial and the mural. The ceremony was hosted by St Maryâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s art teacher Sam Perry who organised the memorial and the garden. Jackâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s parents planted a tree in his honour. At the end of the ceremony, parish priest Father Grant Oâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;Neill blessed the garden, and pupils and teachers said prayers and sang songs. Father Oâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;Neill said St Maryâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s hopes that through the beauty and dedication that went into the garden, Jackâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s spirit will remain part of the school forever.

How banking can support your community When the Community Bank® model was established in 1998, few people thought local communities could influence banks – now more than 260 communities around Australia are running their own Community Bank® branches. In total they have given back more than $50 million to their local community. The basic process is that communities form local publicly owned companies which enter into a commercial franchise to run a Bendigo Bank branch. Bendigo Bank provides the banking infrastructure and licensing, while the community runs the branch operation and generates customer support.

Together Bendigo Bank and the local community share the revenue, with local surpluses available for reinvestment in the community via grants, sponsorships and dividends to local shareholders. And this is where you come in. Just by doing your banking at your local branch, you can help make a difference in your community. For example, thanks to the support of customers and shareholders Hastings & District Community Bank® Branch, has been able to provide over $0,000 of support to local clubs and community groups. The more support you provide the more we can return to the community. Call into 88 High Street, Hastings or phone 5979 2075 to find out more.

Scientists warn of bird drop By Keith Platt SCIENTISTS have found a significant drop in the number of water birds in Western Port over the past four decades. A long-running survey found increased numbers in just one of 38 bird species. The decline in numbers is blamed on changes in land use from as far away as the Yellow Sea off east China and nesting grounds in Western Port being disturbed by dogs and people. Reports of the demise of water birds in Western Port coincide with a survey that shows booming populations of inland wetland birds. The University of New South Wales has released findings of a survey covering 30 per cent of Australia that shows high breeding rates among water birds following rainfall increases, which signalled the end of the drought. Scientists from the Department of Sustainability and Environmentâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Arthur Rylah Institute worked with volunteer birders from Bird Observation & Conservation Australia to track birds using Western Port internationally recognised Ramsar wetlands. Project officer Birgita Hansen said the Australian pied oystercatcher was the only species to have increased in numbers. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The counts found numbers of 16 species have declined significantly, including migratory shorebird species like the common greenshank, curlew sandpiper, eastern curlew and grey-tailed tattler,â&#x20AC;? Dr Hansen said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s increasing evidence from elsewhere in Australia and around the world showing migratory shorebirds may be declining because of the changes in land use in Asia, including reclamation projects on the Yellow Sea. â&#x20AC;&#x153;These birds fly a long way to get to their breeding grounds in the northern hemisphere during our winter and so they are sensitive to anything which makes them work harder to find food on the way.

Numbers down: Fewer species of birds are being found in Western Portâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s internationally recognised wetlands.

â&#x20AC;&#x153;We have also found that disturbance by humans and dogs on their feeding grounds, including those in Western Port, is having some impact on them.â&#x20AC;? Dr Hansen said the 37-year survey was one of the longest running involving scientists and the community. The survey is part of the Western Port Welcomes Waterbirds program run by the Central Coastal Board and financed by the federal government.

Dr Hansen said state government had a responsibility under the Wildlife Act 1975 and the Flora and Fauna Guarantee Act 1988 to protect threatened species. â&#x20AC;&#x153;These animals and plants contribute significantly to the biodiversity of their ecosystems. The knowledge we acquire about these species helps us to then take the on-ground steps needed to ensure their survival.â&#x20AC;?

Vale Jean Flood, Tyabb stalwart FORMER long-time Tyabb resident Jean Flood has died at age 79. Jean lived in Tyabb for 47 years before she and her husband Roy Flood moved to Mt Martha. Jean Mavis Boyle was born at Oakleigh on 1 February 1932, the second child of Alexander and Margaret Boyle. She had an older brother, Alex, a fine sportsman who excelled at cricket and football. He played full-back with clubs at Pearcedale, Frankston, Oakleigh and Carlton, and his abilities were tested by opponents such as John Coleman and Ron Todd. Later he coached Tongala and Narrandera, and now lives in Rye. Jean was educated at Baxter and worked at Pelaco in Frankston in the old Wattle Palais dance hall near Kananook Creek. She was a netballer and captained Baxter. In 1948 Jean met Roy Flood at a dance at the RSL in Frankston and they married at the old Presbyterian church in Playne St, Frankston, on 30 January 1953. From 1953 till 2000 they lived on a property in Boes Rd, Tyabb, which had been in Roy’s family for several generations. For 25 years Roy and his brother, Alan, operated the garage in Tyabb and then Roy became a shopkeeper: he owned Beach Side Hardware in Mt Martha between 1983 and 1986. Then, with son Rob, he operated Doveton Hardware for the following 10 years. Jean was busy raising the family – sons Gary (born 1955), Rob (1957) and Jamie (1962), and

daughter Cathie (1970). As the children grew, Jean decided she needed a challenge and for about 10 years operated Peninsula Home Help from Boes Rd.

Another interest was the mothers’ club at Tyabb Primary School of

Depression hits 15% of new mothers TWO women a day are found to be at risk of antenatal or postnatal depression by the womenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s health services at Frankston and Rosebud hospitals. Although the statistic appears alarming â&#x20AC;&#x153;this is a good thingâ&#x20AC;?, according to Peninsula Healthâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s head of psychology Dr Priscilla Yardley (right). â&#x20AC;&#x153;It means the signs of postnatal depression are being identified early thanks to the introduction of routine screening,â&#x20AC;? Dr Yardley said. Postnatal depression is experienced by women in the months after giving birth. Dr Yardley said up to 15 per cent of women suffer from depression, with most being diagnosed in the first three months after having their babies.

Mayor to protect â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;wedgeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; FRANK Martin is the new mayor of Mornington Peninsula Shire, elected in a close vote over Cr Leigh Eustace on Monday night 5 December. Cr Martin, 67, who lives at Arthurs Seat, said he would work hard to protect the green wedge as well as the unique character of peninsula townships. He would lobby for completion of the bay trial, improved sports pavilions, the shireâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s bicycle strategy and â&#x20AC;&#x153;go on the front foot as the Port of Hastings and Peninsula Link freewayâ&#x20AC;? projects came to fruition. â&#x20AC;&#x153;My pet wish [is] a velodrome on the peninsula,â&#x20AC;? he said during his acceptance speech. He said upgrades of existing public toilets and construction of new toilets in strategic areas was needed. Cr Martinâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s spoils of office include an $80,000 salary, council car, gold chain and invitations to hundreds of events in the coming 12 months. During his acceptance speech, Cr Martin said the Mornington Peninsula was a very special place. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We as councillors have a commitment, and a mandated duty, to ensure that it remains that way. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We must maintain our green wedge; its magnificence is the lungs and the heart and soul of the peninsula. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We must maintain the uniqueness of our townships and our iconic beaches as well.â&#x20AC;? Cr Martin said the peninsula was not a sprawling suburb of Melbourne. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Each town and beach had its own identity and must be preserved. â&#x20AC;&#x153;To ensure that we continue our direction, my first duty will be to meet with the councillors to prioritise what still needs to be done in this term. We canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t let a â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;it canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t be doneâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;, â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a caretaker yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; or â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not the timeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; attitude prevent the outcomes we seek.â&#x20AC;? On our agenda will be the finalisation of the Green Wedge Management Plan, together with our various coastal management and street scape plans.

Chain of command: The shireâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s new mayor Frank Martin with daughter Jodie and wife Di. The couple have five adult children â&#x20AC;&#x201C; three daughters and two sons

â&#x20AC;&#x153;We need to be on the front foot as the roll out of the Port of Hastings and Peninsula Link become even more of a reality. We must be vigilant to ensure the best possible outcomes are secured for the peninsula.â&#x20AC;? Cr Martin said he would â&#x20AC;&#x153;carry out the [mayoral] duties with integrity, dignity and to the best of my abilityâ&#x20AC;?.

AROUND THE PENINSULA

Can I drop off a bomb? A QUIET day for Rosebud police got very busy last Thursday when a man walking in to the station and asked if it would be possible to drop off a bomb he had found. It is believed the man discovered the unexploded ordinance, which dated back to the Second World War or the Korean War, dumped in bushland in

Tootgarook and decided the best course of action would be to take it to local authorities. The police station was quickly evacuated, as was Rosebud Secondary College, which is opposite the station on Boneo Rd. A large perimeter was set up around the station, creating traffic chaos for

hours, while bomb disposal experts from the Australian Arnmy were brought in from Melbourne to investigate the device. Eventually it was found to be inoperable, and was taken away for disposal.

a commission, has raised more than $600,000 for local, national and international projects. In recent years these projects have included:  Building the clock tower in Main St, Mornington, in partnership with the shire.  Supporting Australian Rotary Health, now the country’s largest health research fund.  Providing “shelter boxes” to house families left homeless by natural disasters.  Building two gazebos on the Mornington foreshore and another in Memorial Park.  Buying yachts for Mornington Yacht Club’s Sailability program.

 Financing an Interplast team for cleft lip and palate surgery in the Philippines.  Financial and hands-on support for people affected by bushfires and floods.  Providing money to assist those affected by famine in Africa.  Supplying malaria nets for New Guinea villagers.  Sending an aluminium boat and outboard motor to East Timor.  Annually giving money to help eradicate polio. Opening night for the 40th Mornington Art Show is Friday 20 January. The exhibition will run until Saturday 28 January at Peninsula Community Theatre, corner Nepean Hwy and Wilsons Rd, Mornington.

THE shire council continues its policy of ‘No entertainment – no nonsense’ for New Year’s Eve. There will be no organised public events on the peninsula, no carnival at Rye, no organised fireworks, no camping in public parks or reserves (camping in foreshore areas is fully booked), and no alcohol in public places. The policy started in 2007 as a reaction to a riot at the Rye pier precinct in 2006 when about 500 people hurled bottles and fought police, with several officers injured and one admitted to hospital. Public events were stopped at Sorrento in 2002 after three people were seriously injured on New Year’s Eve in 2001. Laws banning alcohol in public

places start at 9pm on Friday 30 December and run till midnight on Sunday 1 January. Possession of sealed and unsealed containers of alcohol in public places is prohibited unless sealed containers are being transported from hotel and liquor shops to a vehicle or private home for consumption. Having a glass container in a public place is also prohibited. The shire said southern peninsula venues open on New Year’s Eve would only be accessible by pre-purchased tickets. Rye pier car parks will be closed from 4pm on New Year’s Eve. For details, call the shire on 1300 850 600.

Put cold callers on hold – WorkSafe BUSINESSES across the Mornington Peninsula and in Frankston are being warned by WorkSafe Victoria to be wary of cold callers offering health and safety services. The warning followed action by the Australian Competition and Consumer Commission against a company selling safety products that was alleged to have made false or misleading representations concerning the need

for workplace safety materials and/or harassment or coercion. “WorkSafe Victoria has no commercial operations and we don’t endorse commercial products, directly test equipment or conduct training,” WorkSafe’s operations general manager Lisa Sturzenegger said. To check, call WorkSafe on 1800 136 089.


Surfer Joes bring ‘smiles to dials’ By Keith Platt EYES lighting up; smiles spread across faces; giving something back; it makes me feel good. The comments come at different times from two different people. Two surfers who have offered their time to encourage and help people with disabilities enjoy surfing. Coincidentally, both are surfer Joes – Joe Lemon and Joe Hart. Both Joes live on the peninsula, Hart in Rosebud and Lemon in Mornington. And both have volunteered their time and expertise during events held at Ocean Grove by the Disabled Surfers Association of Australia (DSA). A branch has now sprung up on the Mornington Peninsula with a training day for volunteers being held at Point Leo on Saturday 4 February followed a month later by a day at the beach for those with disabilities. The reactions of the two peninsula surfers have shown that when it comes to helping others, giving is as good as receiving. “My wife Janine and I attended our first event in February 2010 and we were overwhelmed by the level of support from surfers and non-surfers committed to the cause of helping others, putting smiles on dials,” Hart said. “I have always felt that I would like to put something back into the sport that literally changed my life.” Hart said that first DSA event gave him the chance to help others “enjoy the same things that I can do each and every day … seeing the smiles, the laughter, the thrill of catching your

first wave or even the once-a-year opportunity to even ride only one wave”. “Imagine that as a surfer you can only have the opportunity to catch one or two waves a year and then only with the assistance of others. It quickly puts things into perspective. “It seemed like the perfect way to help others to be able to enjoy something I take for granted each day. “You can never wake up in the morning and say life’s tough. Our daily challenges seem incidental compared to the challenges that a disabled person faces each and every day.” Joe and Janine Hart are members

of the committee behind the newly formed Disabled Surfers Association peninsula committee. The feedback from participants at the Ocean Grove event also left its mark on Joe Lemon. “At first I was surprised at the differing disabilities of those needing help to get in the water,” he said. “A lot of them didn’t know what the day would be about. “There was a man in his 70s who had suffered a stroke and just needed help to walk into the water so it was up to his chest. “There was a former surfer who had

been in a car crash and all he could do to signal us was lift his finger. “If I was a surfer and became disabled, it would be nice to know someone was willing to help me into the water.” Lemon said a few of the people with disabilities had not enjoyed the surfing experience “but they’ll never know what’s in it for them until they try”. He urged volunteers to go to the training day “if they enjoy the water and enjoy seeing others being happy”. “There’s nothing better than getting out in the water and, if some people can’t do it themselves, we can help.”

THE Disabled Surfers Association was formed in 1986 by Gary Blaschke who was injured in a motorbike accident, but wanted to remain a surfer. There are 14 branches in five states, working to make beaches more accessible to people with a disability as well as holding “hands-on days” in the surf. There is usually a ratio of six volunteers to one disabled participant at the hands-on events, sometimes with up to 30 volunteers forming a “runway” for the surfboard. People are taken in waistdeep broken waves with a 10foot two-inch soft board. Point Leo Surf Life Saving Club has offered its facilities for the training day in February and the committee of the peninsula branch is seeking sponsors to help run events and get more equipment. Training for volunteers will be held 9am-2pm at Point Leo on Saturday 4 February. Volunteers can bring their wetsuits and by the end of the training will receive a Level 1 DSA “TtH” certificate.

It’s a dolphin, so keep your distance Summer rangers: Parks Victoria launched its Summer Junior Ranger program on Saturday at London Bridge in the Mornington Peninsula National Park with budding junior rangers. During the summer school holidays, selected parks will provide activities led by Parks rangers, with hundreds of children expected to participate. To find out about the junior ranger program go to www.juniorrangers.com.au or call Parks Victoria on 13 1963.

Art for heart’s sake PROCEEDS from the second annual Balnarring Art Exhibition will go toward the purchase of a defibrillator at Balnarring Bowls and Social Club as part of the ‘Defib Your Club For Life’ program. The program was started by MICA paramedic Andrew White of Rupertswood Football Club, who wants a defibrillator at every sporting club in the state after his club lost a young player to a heart attack. Mr White worked on Stephen Buckman, 19, after he collapsed at a training session. An ambulance arrived after 20 minutes, but Mr White says a defibrillator may have saved Stephen’s life. He said Defib Your Club For Life was a non-for profit program aiming

to install public access defibrillators across Victoria following a spate of collapses at sporting venues. “People affected have included players, coaches, umpires and supporters,” he said. An Ambulance Victoria spokesman said automatic defibrillators were safe, cost about $2400 and could be used by people with minimal or no training. The art show on Sunday 8 January at Balnarring Bowls and Social Club will feature a wide range of artwork from peninsula artists. There will be a silent auction, voting for the “People’s Choice Award” and an opportunity to meet artists. Entrance is $5 (under 12 free) and includes a cup of tea or coffee or a glass

of wine as well as snacks. A bowls club spokesman said the exhibition would allow artists to show their work as well as provide an opportunity for people to find out about the club. He said it was a meeting place for residents including the Lions Club of Balnarring and Red Cross. “Last year’s exhibition was a great success with several hundred visitors and 147 art entries.” For details, visit the club’s website at www.balnarringbowls.com or phone 5983 1655. Information about the defibrillator project is at www.defibforlife.org.au

BOAT and jet ski drivers have been told to keep away from dolphins and seals. Last year two dolphins were killed by possible boat strikes to the head and three people were bitten by seals. While licensed tour operators can go within 50 metres of a dolphin and 100m of a whale, the distance is more than doubled for recreational boats and jet skis. The Department of Sustainability and Environment’s compliance operations manager Glenn Sharp said it is important that people who use the water understand that marine mammals are protected wildlife. “It is great to see dolphins and seals in our waters, but we need everyone to behave safely and lawfully to ensure these amazing animals aren’t harmed or placed under pressure in their natural environment,” Mr Sharp said. “If people are not willing to meet their legal responsibilities and they approach a dolphin or seal at a distance closer than the law allows, they will be penalised. The rules are: Recreational boaters must stay 100m away from dolphins and 200m from whales, except if approached by the animals. High impact vessels like jet skis must stay 300m away from whales and dolphins. If people find themselves close to a dolphin, whale or seal, they should

reduce their speed to five knots or less and steer away from the animal. People must keep 30m from a seal on a beach. Swimmers must not go within 50m of a whale or 30m of a dolphin. Aircraft including helicopters must be at least 500m above a whale or dolphin. Recreational boaters must stay 200m away from dolphins within the Ticonderoga Bay Sanctuary between Police Point and the Port Phillip Heads. All boat and jet ski operators must not exceed five knots within 200m of shore within all coastal waters and ports of Victoria. For more information on the new regulations, visit www.dse.vic.gov.au or call 136 186. To report an emergency (stranding, entanglement, injury or death) involving a whale or dolphin, call 1300 136 017.

Cockies at home in the backyard THEY are noisy and sometimes enjoy eating cedar window frames, but sulphur-crested cockatoo are also entertaining and generally welcome in backyards. Some of the noise comes from their search for a mate and the Backyard Buddies group has listed tips on how to make the cockies feel at home. Run by the Foundation for National Parks & Wildlife, Backyard Buddies gives advice on making household gardens “inviting and safe for native animals”. “Almost everyone will have seen a sulphurcrested cockatoo. They are the familiar large white birds with a lemon yellow crest and an infamous blood curdling call,” the foundation’s CEO Steve Corbett said. “They breed from August to January in southern Australia. To attract a mate, a male sulphurcrested cockatoo struts Mick Jagger-style toward the female with his crest held high and his tail feathers spread out wide. “Sulphur-crested cockatoos lay one to three eggs in tree hollows and both parents incubate them for 30 days. The chicks stay in the nest for two months after hatching, and then remain with their parents and family group indefinitely. “So that’s why if you see one cocky around, chances are there’s many more about, too.” Mr Corbett said the best ways to “be a buddy to clucky cockies” included:  Leaving old gum trees with hollows for nest sites.  Providing nest boxes.  Not feeding wild cockatoos.  Keeping cats and dogs indoors as much as possible, especially at night.  Avoiding using chemicals and pesticides on your garden.  Reporting injured birds to wildlife rescue or care groups.  Never releasing a pet cockatoo into the wild. “If you want to be a buddy to cockatoos, a

Landcare $50,000 for peninsula network THE peninsula is a step closer to having a Landcare network after the state government awarded the region one of 60 grants to pay for a coordinator. A grant of $50,000 will go toward paying for a person to guide the peninsula’s 10 volunteer Landcare groups and coordinate important environmental work, says Bernie Schedvin of Main Creek Catchment Landcare Group. Ms Schedvin said the peninsula’s groups mainly worked within their own catchments, but a regionwide approach was needed to deal with pest plants and animals, for example, and a network would enable greater efficiencies and more ambitious plans to be set up. The creation of biolinks – natural areas enabling animals to move between private and publicly owned bushland – would be easier with a strong peninsula Landcare network, she said. A coordinator would help prepare grant applications, monitor and report on projects, and liaise with public bodies and the community.

Pictures trace tragedy of Balkans ‘missing’ great thing you can do is plant local native plants, grasses, shrubs and trees that they love in your garden. Two trees they particularly love are yellow box gums and macadamia nut,” Mr Corbett said. “Avoid feeding a cockatoo, as what starts as one cute visitor can quickly become a large group descending on your place. These guys are used to feeding in flocks, so if a good food source is found, the word will get around. “Sulphur-crested cockatoos also are prone to stripping bark, small branches and leaves from trees while not feeding to keep their beaks trimmed and sharp, particularly when they are bored. “So if you regularly feed cockies, you might come home one day to find a few waiting for you,

and stripping timberwork, windowsills or decking while they wait.” Mr Corbett said planting a native garden cockatoos could feed from harmlessly would avoid the problem. “If cockies are already stripping the woodwork, you can deter them by attaching strips of aluminium foil, fabric or feathers from a feather duster that will flutter in the wind near where the birds are chewing. This will frighten them away, but be warned that it will also deter other birds, too.”  The State of the Environment Report released this week shows a continuing decline in the numbers of native animals and birds. The 900-page report also lists Port Phillip region as possibly the southern hemisphere marine environment most invaded by foreign pests.

SIXTEEN years after the wars in Serbia, Croatia and Bosnia, and 12 years after the end of the conflict in Kosovo, thousands of civilians remain unaccounted for. A Red Cross photography exhibition showing in Mornington tells the story of some of the missing. The photos by award-winning British photographer Nick Danziger document the plight of families still waiting for news of loved ones who went missing during the wars in the former Yugoslavia. Beside each photograph is a short description of the missing person and their family’s search for answers, compiled by Canadian writer Rory MacLean. Missing Lives will be shown at the Mornington Library Foyer Exhibition Space in Vancouver St, Mornington, until 29 January.

Time for display home quality WITH an amazing amount of space that surprises you once inside, this superbly maintained home is almost like the TARDIS from Doctor Who. As you enter, there is a separate study to the right and internal access from the double garage to your left. Living areas keep materialising with each step down the long hallway with a formal lounge situated just before you enter the main, open-plan living area. The lounge has enough room for a three-piece suite and television cabinet, while the dining area is positioned towards one corner with the large kitchen centrally located. Featuring quality gas cooking appliances and a dishwasher, there is also plenty of bench space. A third living area makes for a great games room or home theatre room, and there is even a paved entertainment area. Toward the back of the home are the bedrooms, two with built-in robes, and the master bedroom features an ensuite and walk-in robe. Situated in one of the more popular streets in Bittern, this great home is only a short walk to central Bittern and when all shops are occupied at the Bittern Fields Shopping Village, this address will become even more desirable.

Small wonder

PERHAPS more in keeping with cosmopolitan towns on the western side of the peninsula, this designer home in Crib Point is a real find for anyone seeking fine stylings without the Mornington price tag. Framed by low-maintenance gardens front and back, the home has an interior that is first class. Well-defined living areas feature plush carpet and there are floating timber floors in the high traffic areas between rooms as well as in the open-plan kitchen and dining area, which has a nice flow through to a second area, ideal for a family room. Positioned to overlook a concreted, undercover area and a pleasant garden, the kitchen has a large under-bench oven, dishwasher and pantry. All three bedrooms have built-in robes and the master bedroom also has an ensuite. There is a spa bath in the main bathroom. The block measure about 1000 square metres and is well set up for the tradesman with a wide circular driveway, double garage under the roof line and, behind secure double gates, a steel workshop and a large unsealed area for extra vehicles.

YOU know the saying about good things and small packages? With this well-maintained cottage the adage rings true. Situated on the corner of Woolleys Road and Stony Point Road, with driveway access from both, the home was the areaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s original ice cream shop. The interior is nothing if not compact with one room encompassing the kitchen, dining and a lounge. There are two bedrooms, the larger main bedroom has an ensuite, and there is real character in the delightful sun porch. A paved driveway leads to the carport, which has a roller door and through the back this extends to an undercover area with a separate studio or possibly a third bedroom. The home is on a good-sized, 1000-square metre block and is quite private from the road. There are several outbuildings for extra storage and the expansive lawn area is complemented by lovely cottage gardens.

Balnarring “Kylinda” - It’s all about the Lifestyle!

Price by Negotiation

Imagine your own bolthole, your escape, your haven! Picture 10 beautiful acres of land. Think of the sweeping views - the reality is better than anything you can imagine...Bass Strait, Seal Rocks, Phillip Island, The Nobbies, Cowes, and the Anderson Hills at Bass... Consider a home that is almost 100-years-old yet is comfortable and relaxing for today’s family. Picturesque, peaceful, perfect “Kylinda” is where it is happening. Glory in living the good life - country-style - but only minutes away from Balnarring village (shopping centre, primary school, community wetlands) and Westernport beaches. A circular driveway leads to a weatherboard 4-bedroom home with a wraparound verandah that gives a real homestead feel. Twelve-foot ceilings, polished floorboards, pressed metal wall panelling, strapped ceilings are part of the bygone era but the reverse-cycle air conditioning and the updated bathroom are definitely for today’s family. The living room has a Coonara (just think of the snug cosiness on cold winter days!) There is gas cooking in the country-style eat-in kitchen. Years ago this was a chook farm but today it’s divided into 6-7 paddocks with a dam, plenty of shedding, multiple workshops, race, shearing shed, 2 stock ramps (sheep and cattle) and a sheep yard. There is tank water. Whether you want a country property for permanent residence or you plan to use it as the occasional escape from the big city, know that life is good at “Kylinda”.

AROUND THE PENINSULA

Quarry clearance delay THE road-making spoil and rubble dumped at the old quarry on the Esplanade in Mt Martha will not be cleared until next year. Although community groups have to pay to use reserves and public halls, officers at Mornington Peninsula Shire gave permission for the quarry to be used without charge as a dump while roads were being made by contractor Maw Civil. Under the original agreement, the spoil was to have been shifted by the contractor once roadworks off Stanley Cres were finished, but the officers then decided it could be used to combat gully erosion between the Eyrie and Point Nepean Rd in McCrae. The shire says rain has delayed the works and “stabilisation, drainage and path works will be undertaken to stabilise the area and improve drainage”. The shire says more work at the Eyrie “is expected to commence in the new year” and that “the quarry will be restored after completion of the works”. A shire sign on Point Nepean Rd at the base of the Eyrie gully says the $948,000 “drainage stabilisation workls and path construction” was completed by contractor Maw Civil in August 2010. However, a smaller sign says the track is closed. A garden and bridge cover part of the gully near the Eyrie and the shire has yet to respond to requests from The News about ownership of the land. Keith Platt

Gully work: A garden and bridge cover the top of the Eyrie gully at McCrae (above) while a sign at the lower end says the $948,000 stabilisation project is complete (top). The shire says spoil dumped in the former Mt Martha quarry is yet to be taken to the gully.

SEVEN young voices are in training to lead the way in singing the national anthem during the coming Australia Day ceremonies on the Mornington Peninsula. The voices belong to the seven winners of Mornington Peninsula Shire’s national anthem singer competition: Caitlin Morgan, Madison Smith, Brooke Miller, Ruby Benjamin, Laila Cooke, Aria Lloyd and Tia Lloyd. Singing teacher Erik Donnison and pianist Laurie Davis are tutoring the singers in the lead-up to the big day. The seven were chosen by

judges on their performances of singing the first two verses of Advance Australia Fair unaccompanied and in traditional fashion. Radio Port Phillip FM has recorded the seven who will all sing at flag-raising ceremonies on Australia Day around the peninsula, as part of the shire’s celebrations on Thursday 26 January. The singers will be at events organised by the shire around the theme Recognising Our Heroes:  Dromana foreshore 10.3011am near the pier, Caitlin Morgan.

 Hastings foreshore 1111.30am, Madison Smith.  Mornington Park 6.156.45pm, Aria and Tia Lloyd.  Mt Eliza Community Centre 9.35-10am, Aria and Tia Lloyd.  Rosebud Village Green 10.15-10.30am, Brooke Miller.  Rye foreshore 11am, Laila Cooke.  Sorrento-Portsea RSL, Hurley St, 10.30am, Ruby Benjamin.

SUMMER SERVICE

EDWARD CT AUTUMN CT


Portsea beach could be ‘let go’ By Mike Hast PORTSEA’S iconic front beach could be “let go” under a worst case scenario, says Department of Sustainability and Environment’s Port Phillip regional director Rodney Warren. Mr Warren gave the grim news at a meeting of stakeholders in Portsea on Tuesday last week, the third such meeting since last August when about 30 people then heard talks, studied maps and diagrams, and vigorously debated possible causes of the catastrophic loss of the beach, dunes and trees near the jetty and below the Portsea pub. At Portsea Tennis Club about 20 people – including representatives of DSE and Mornington Peninsula Shire – met and much the same occurred, although new charts and photos were displayed, the result of the first year of a two-year monitoring program. Mr Warren outlined the works that had been done to save the foreshore since July 2010 including the building of a 150-metre long sandbag seawall before last summer. The very large elephant in the room was the dredging of Port Phillip Heads in 2008 and 2009, which authorities continue to deny caused the destruction of a once-popular bay beach in less than two years. Theories about natural erosion, stronger winds, high ocean waves or some other cause not yet identified by scientists don’t convince people such as Len Salter, founder of Dive Victoria; Judy Muir of the Sorrento-based Polperro Dolphins Swims; Gary Grant of Bayplay, the marine adventure company; and Portsea Hotel manager Andrew Henderson, who has daily watched the massive erosion and ocean-type waves remove the beach. The three tourism operators once used the beach, but have abandoned it for alternative places nearby. Len Salter has consistently said the removal of rock at a section of The Heads known as The Plateau is letting in a greater amount of water and from a different direction. “Portsea pier has been a safe place for divers for more than 30 years. That’s all changed. The swell we are getting now means it’s unsafe for up to 12 hours a day. It’s unprecedented.” Mr Salter claimed up to six metres of rock had been removed from The Plateau, a statement refuted by the Port of Melbourne Corporation last year when CEO Stephen Bradford stated no more than three metres had been removed. Mr Warren said the next stage of DSE’s investigations was “a pre-feasibility study of coastal erosion management options to protect and manage public assets at Portsea front beach”. Consultants would be appointed before Christmas. He said options might include constructing an artificial reef, groynes or other treatments. “Maybe we will find the beach is no longer viable and we’ll have to walk away,” he said. He said erosion of beaches was occurring around the world: “It’s a natural event.” Average erosion on Port Phillip beaches was between half and one metre, he said, but Portsea had lost 10-15 metres since May 2010. (The DSE website quotes Mr Warren stating it was 20-25

metres.) The 150-metre long sandbag revetment had been damaged during a storm in early July this year and bags had been replaced. A line of rocks placed to protect workers had been removed last Friday, he said. A sand movement monitoring program had been started in May and would continue for another 12 months, Mr Warren said. Results would guide “future management options”. “We’re looking for a pattern, a trend in erosion or accretion [addition] of sand, and don’t want to jump in if natural events will rectify the problem.” Mike Behnke, DSE’s infrastructure and risk manager, said the sandbag wall had been built with insufficient slope last summer as “we were running out of space; we were confined as the sand was going so quickly”. Andrew Henderson said the beach had been there for more than 1000 years and nothing would convince him the loss was caused by anything other than dredging of The Heads. “The swell started after the dredging.” Gary Grant said there had been massive sand loss further west of Portsea in Point Nepean National Park, at a place called The Bend. He said a walkway built by Parks Victoria had been closed one month after opening due to massive erosion. Moonah trees 500 years old had been washed away. Mr Warren said the channel deepening project “was not our area”. “We take our information from the Office of Environmental Monitor,” he said. This statement later led conservationist and architectural historian Ursula de Jong to suggest the meeting pass a resolution asking for a whole of government approach to investigate the erosion. “Government should look at channel deepening, sea level rise, weather and climate,” she said. Mr Warren said Environment Minister Ryan Smith knew about the meeting and would want a briefing. Mr Warren said he would tell the minister about people’s concerns. Replying to a question from Len Salter about safety and that he had seen people jumping off the sandbag wall, John Ault-Connell of the shire council said warning signs would be erected soon, “hopefully before Christmas”. The bottom line is that Portsea beach is no longer the jewel in the crown of the coastal village that contains some of Australia’s most valuable real estate. Strolling along the sands with water lapping at bare feet is a thing of the past. Last week, when a three-metre swell swept in from Bass Strait and through The Heads, a huge shorebreak pounded Portsea beach, spray flying up onto where the jetty joins the land. The News saw just three people near the beach: schoolies who were walking along the top of the sandbags and then climbed over two sandbags placed near the jetty access road. The current access track starts further east.  The Office of the Environmental Monitor is to close at the end of December, four years after it was established by the state government to oversee the Port of Melbourne’s channel deepening project. See Page 40.

Back beach or front?: Portsea front beach on Tuesday afternoon last week with a huge shore break making a walk along the water’s edge difficult. Three visitors stroll along the top of the 150-metre sandbag wall, or revetment, erected by DSE last year to stop further erosion, which had already taken at least 20 metres of beach and land.

10 years of maintenance dredging THE Port of Melbourne Corporation begins a 10-year maintenance dredging program next March. It says all work will be done “in accordance with an approved Environmental Management Plan”. It will dredge the Yarra River, Hodsons Bay, channels in the north, ship berths, swing basins, Maribyrnong River, Webb Dock, other port areas, the Port Melbourne Channel, the South Channel between Rosebud and The Heads, and the Great Ship Channel through The Heads. Dredged material will again be dumped at the northern dredged material ground, which is in the middle of Port Phillip west of Mordialloc, and the South East DMG off Martha Point near Safety Beach.

Vale to a glass and rose man THE founder and driving force behind Mornington Botanical Rose Gardens, Don Gordon, has died at age 79. Mr Gordon was a man of many parts. He founded Gordon Glass in 1957, served on many community groups including Rotary, and was a councillor on the Shire of Mornington including shire president in 1978. His glass business grew to become the dominant retail and trade supplier and installer of glass products in the region. Mr Gordon’s passion in recent years was establishing and running the rose gardens. He and Jill Hardy (pictured) built a team of volunteers with a passion for gardening and roses in particular. The rose garden was opened in November 2008 by another great gardener of the region, Dame Elisabeth Murdoch. Mr Gordon had been lobbying Mornington Peninsula Shire for an education centre next to

the garden. Last April, Mr Gordon unveiled the ‘Mornington rose’, bred from a French rose and an Australian rose, which has been registered. Mornington Rose Garden is at Civic Reserve, Dunns Rd, Mornington. A memorial service for Mr Gordon was held at Mornington Civic Bowls and Social Club on Tuesday 20 December. Mike Hast

AROUND THE PENINSULA

History set for the wrecking crew By Mike Hast MORNINGTON Peninsula Shire has ordered the demolition of 42 Barkly St, Mornington, after an engineer reported the chimney was in danger of collapsing. The order, issued on 7 December, brings to an end a distressing chapter in the lives of owners Elio and Angela Giucastro, who in July were ordered to restore their firedamaged house, which was heritage listed by the shire after they bought it in 2006. The couple, who operate Biscottini cafe in the Main St, Mornington, faced a costly legal battle in the planning tribunal after the shire rejected their plans. The pending demolition of Bloomfield Lodge is also distressing for heritage buffs as the house was a link with one of the most flamboyant characters of the last century – James Louis Edgeworth Somers. Dr Somers was a “beloved physician” who ministered to the sick from 1893 to 1938, built the house at 42 Barkly St in 1920, and is still remembered by the town’s older citizens. He rode a white horse around Mornington accompanied by his baying hounds, and drove to all parts of the peninsula to care for his patients. On Wednesday 14 December, Mrs Giucastro told The News the shire had ordered the house be pulled down within 14 days, but an extension had been granted when

they told the shire no one could do it within that time. She said the demolition, expected to cost about $16,000, would start some time in the new year. Mrs Giucastro was relieved more than triumphant when The News spoke to her. “It’s been almost six years since we bought the house and has been a long and frustrating journey,” she said. The 1920s California bungalow was placed under a permanent heritage overlay in 2010, after the Giucastros had applied to demolish it. They claim they were told there was no heritage value when discussing the property with the shire soon after purchase. The Giucastros bought the property from Denise Hassett in 2006 for $715,000. Ms Hassett and her then-husband David Hassett had operated a bed and breakfast there since 1995 when they bought it from Dr Stewart Johnston, the last doctor to work out of the house since it was built 75 years before. The house had been vacant since March 2007 and had been vandalised as well as partly damaged by fires including one in January 2009 and one on 27 October last year. Objections to the original demolition application came from the peninsula branch of the National Trust, a heritage protection lobbyist from Dromana, Mornington Environment Association and several Mornington residents.

AROUND FRANKSTON

New life proposed for ‘eyesore’ By Keith Platt PLANS have been approved for the Peninsula Centre to be converted into an apartment block, complete with tavern, restaurants and offices. The latest proposal to fix Frankston’s most prominent eyesore has been given the go-ahead by Frankston Council. However, council’s urban designer has given the design the thumbs down, saying such a prominent building “should be of an excellent quality, not just reasonable”. “It is my opinion that this development is not up to standard and requires revision,” the designer said. The expert’s views are at odds with those of the mayor Brian Cunial who sees the proposal as “the right development”. “We are confident this development will bring the right mix of people to invest, live, work and visit our city centre. The redevelopment will bring long-lasting economic benefits to our municipality,” Cr Cunial said. The latest plan to add value to the derelict, 43-metre high Nepean Hwy building includes 149 apartments and a new name, The Peninsula on the Bay. The 49 single-bedroom apartments on the top three floors are likely to go on the market for $300,000-$350,000, with the leases on the remaining 100 being managed by Quest Apartments. The Deague family hopes to have the $40 million refit of its 11-storey building completed in 12 months. The family’s building arm, Asian

Pacific Building Corporation, paid $11.2 million for the building. Geoff Crowder of the Nichols Crowder real estate agency said council approval of the latest plan “may be the catalyst we’ve been looking for” for a revival of the city centre. Earlier this year the Deague family took the centre off the market and signalled it would proceed with earlier

plans to redevelop the Peninsula Centre as a “corporate hotel”. Mr Crowder believed the building would retain the Peninsula Centre name “for good or for bad”. The go-ahead for the Peninsula Centre closely follows Victorian Civil and Administrative Tribunal approval of an apartment block in Davey St – destined to be Frankston tallest building.

Owners of the proposed 14-storey, $65 million Airio building won against an objection lodged with the VCAT, gaining permission for an additional eight apartments in the final ruling. There were no objections to the plans for the Peninsula Centre, which included a reduction in spaces in two basement car parks. Several major planning permits have been issued previously for the Peninsula Centre, but none have been acted on. These have included restaurants and nightclubs, advertising signs, apartments and a hotel. Built in 1973, the building was initially occupied by offices, shops, twin cinemas and restaurants, and other tenants over the years included an amusement parlour. In the latest plans the restaurant/cafe would have 100 seats and the tavern be licensed for 60 patrons. Two shops at the rear of the building would face Keys St with offices on the ground floor and first level. The apartments include 132 singlebedroom and 17 two-bedroom dwellings from levels one to 10 with a gymnasium for residents. The owners say the external look of the building will be changed by “improving the facades” at the street level to Nepean Hwy and Keys St, and replacing the blank concrete panels above the lower ground floor level on Keys St with balconies and windows. A ‘dark grey’ external finish would be used to “break down the existing builtform and to upgrade the

appearance of the building”. New windows on the east and south would “add interest and provide improved internal amenity”. Council’s urban designer said the architects of the latest proposal “seem to have been somewhat hampered by the retrofit of the existing building”, citing lack of balconies and opening windows. “The nature of the original use of the building for commercial purposes has to be recognised as a design constraint that appears to be either unable to be fixed given the nature of the existing structural components and the feasibility of doing so,” the designer said. “To change its use to permanent residential sees a less than optimal level of internal amenity for future occupants.” However, the designer said the ground floor tavern, restaurant and shops would “activate the street edge and provide vibrancy to this part of the highway and Keys Street that is currently not activated”. “It would appear that while this would get something happening with this building that has sat idle for so long, there are concerns with the use of the older site for permanent residential use and the poor levels of internal amenity offered by the redevelopment. “The levels of articulation are not particularly interesting or innovative and they should be for our tallest, most visible and well recognised building. Design solutions should be of an excellent quality not just reasonable.”

OEM closes at end of month THE Office of the Environmental Monitor ceases operations at the end of December. OEM was established by the state government in December 2007 as a requirement of the Port of Melbourne Corporation’s channel deepening project, and was funded by PoMC. The position of Environmental Monitor was held by EPA head Mick Bourke and then Don Hough, a career public servant who helped set up the state’s marine management and was involved in work on the deepening project from 2001. The office did no scientific monitoring of its own and did not have the power to stop dredging if anything went wrong. It analysed data collected by others, assessed whether PoMC was doing all it should environmentally, and reported publicly on what it found. The OEM had five people including two marine

ecologists. The office reported quarterly, annually, after major parts of dredging were completed, and responded to public concerns. It “called” the PoMC and its dredging partner Boskalis on just a few minor matters. The state government has not yet announced which department will take on the OEM duties. This includes monitoring the long-term operation of the northern dredged material ground, where toxic material was taken from the Yarra and Maribyrnong rivers as well as dock areas, placed in a bund and covered with clean sand from the South Channel. This was one of the most controversial aspects of channel deepening as the material was deemed too toxic to be dumped on land. Mike Hast

OPINION

The Western Port Whisperer SOMETHING peculiar is happening with the Tyabb Township Plan. Following public submissions on the draft plan sent in between last November and this April, the final version was due to be submitted to the council in September or October. Then, from out of the blue, three late submissions appeared and the whole thing has been pushed back. First it was September or October, then November, then later this year and now it’s early next year. The plan is designed to, as the shire states, “guide land use, development, and transport, including public and private investment, within the Tyabb Township over the next 15 years”. The Whisperer has done his best,

but been unable to find out who wrote the late submissions. It’s all very hush-hush, but this enables The Whisperer to speculate: could the late submissions have come from the state government? Might they be about the plans to expand the Port of Hastings into the state’s second-biggest container port? A huge chunk of land at Tyabb is zoned “port-related” and would be part of any expansion. Denis Napthine visited our port areas in August, soon after BlueScope said it would sack 200 workers and close the hot strip mill and a metal coating line. It’s been an “interesting year” in Western Port, as the old Chinese curse goes.

In October, Dr Napthine (he’s a vet) said the government’s vision for the port included giant driverless electric trucks trundling up and down beside Western Port Hwy between Hastings and Dandenong. The government is promising to fast-track development within 10 to 13 years, at a 2011 cost of $10 billion. There would be compulsory acquisition of land for the port and transport links, including a port operations centre with quarantine, storage, customs and logistics facilities located inland. At Tyabb? *** SPEAKING of port-related stuff, The Whisperer hears more than 120 people have applied for the

board of the new Port of Hastings Development Authority. The Whisperer tried to apply, but they wanted him to sign a nondisclosure document and as he only talks in whispers, he wouldn’t be heard above the throng of applicants anyway. *** TWO households, both alike in dignity/in fair Somers where we lay our scene... Shapespeare is an acquired taste that The Whisperer has never managed to acquire, but that won’t stop some of his acquaintances wanting to hightail it to Coolart Homestead at Somers mid-January for the OZACT production of Romeo and Juliet.

Fans of The Bard will see Bill’s greatest tale of love against a background of mature formal gardens and majestic trees. Two star-crossed lovers from rival families find love against all odds, and risk all they have to be together – hey, who’s been reading The Whisperer’s diary? See Romeo and Juliet on the weekend of 14 and 15 January at 3pm each day. Book at www.ozact.com or call 0419 330 516 and tell ’em The Whisperer sent you as he has just sent a play to OZACT about a young man, a dog and an abandoned submarine. thewhisperer@y7mail.com

Mayor thinks riding in circles a safe proposition MRS Emu is particularly taken with strong-legged men. It is one of the attributes of Cr David Gibb – the longstriding pursuer of prime beeves across his ancestral Dromana paddocks – that sets her heart a flutter. Now she’s turned her rapt gaze towards the new mayor, Cr Frank Martin. “Strong and silent,” she breathed when she heard the news that, in his mayoral speech, he stated that he wants a velodrome built on the peninsula. The Emu wonders about the cost, the demand for it, and whether Lycra-clad pelotons could be detoured into it for a bit of lap work, in lieu of endangering emus and assorted possums getting about their legitimate business along the shire’s highways and byways. Perhaps, he speculates, it could be built at Rosebud beside, or even around, the proposed pool. A quick 80 circuits then a sweaty splash, Lycra, helmet and all – good idea! But he agrees that Mayor Martin and his pushbiking mate, CEO Michael Kennedy OAM DBA, need somewhere to ride that is of a more sporting and less perilous nature than Point Nepean Rd. And – here’s a thought that might just appeal to the CEO’s and Cr Gibb’s herding instincts – it could become a mandatory part of all councillors’ weekly program to throw the leg over a treadly and follow the KennedyMartin team onto the steeply sloped track for a score or two of laps. A couple of councillors might need trikes, but that would be a small cost to the shire for ensuring a healthy body driving a well-tuned, decision-making mind.

A slim majority of councillors, now known as the Rusties (short for Rusted-Ons, members of the Gibb-Kennedy faction), would take to it with ease: they are already accustomed to following their leader in circles. The rest, dubbed the Trusties, would (as they do in the council chamber) run the Rusties a close second. So well done, Mr Mayor, thinks The Emu, whose powerful lower limbs enabled him to run down his bride all those years ago. She now has a new objet d’heart to divert her from fluttering her eyelashes at him, giving The Emu time to ponder the sombre wisdom of the German proverb: “An emu chases a female emu until she catches him.”

Six degrees/votes SOME wag has pointed out to The Emu that our first among equals councillor, mayor Frank Martin, has only ever received six votes in his career in local government. Mayor Frank waltzed into Red Hill Ward at the elections in late 2008 as he was the only candidate to nominate for the seat vacated by long-time councillor David Jarman. So no votes there. On Monday night, the vote for mayor was between Cr Martin and Mt Eliza Ward councillor Leigh Eustace, who joined the shire at the same elections as Cr Martin, although Cr Eustace had

to beat a field of eight candidates. At the mayoral election on Monday 5 December, three blokes threw their hat in the ring – Frank Martin, Leigh Eustace and Cr Bill Goodrem. Goodrem was knocked out in the first round when he received three votes to Martin four and Eustace four. Now it was head to head between Martin and Eustace. The Rusted-Ons held sway with Crs Anne Shaw, David Gibb, Reade Smith, Bill Goodrem and Antonella Celi voting for Cr Martin. Frank voted for himself, of course. Six votes.

Eustace had his own vote plus those of Crs Graham Pittock, Tim Rodgers, Bev Colomb and Lynn Bowden. Five votes. The same thing happened for the election of deputy mayor – Anne Shaw voted for herself plus her five RustedOn mates. Cr Colomb received five votes – see above.

Squeezed in WHILE the new mayor was being lauded, the outgoing mayor, Cr Graham Pittock, cleverly asked his wife, mayoress Prue Pittock, to open their

under-construction squash courts and gymnasium in Collins Rd, Dromana, on his last full day as the shire’s top dog. On Sunday 4 December, the couple were joined by Cr Pittock’s mum Kath and a small group of friends and relatives to witness Prue cutting the ribbon among the rubble and disarray that goes with an ongoing building project, to be called Dromana Sporting Club. “At least when we open for business early in the new year we will have a plaque saying it was officially opened by the mayoress,” Cr Pittock told bystanders with a broad grin.

Scaling new heights just for sheer fun THE state-of-the-art indoor rock climbing centre Bayside Rock in Carrum Downs is ever evolving. For the first time in Australia offers a fully automated climbing area called Climb Time. Unlike regular climbing gyms where parents and partners are required to go through training and have to belay (do the rope work) for the climbers, Climb Time is all action for climbers while parents can sit back and relax. The automatic belay stations are the safest of their kind and are suitable for climbers ranging from 10 kilograms to 100 kilograms so the fun isn’t limited to the kids. Parents can now climb safely up the wall next to their children or sit back and relax while enjoying a hot or cold drink, in air-conditioned comfort, another first for a centre of this kind. Climb Time sessions cost $20 a child and run for a full hour. Alternatively, book a Climb Time adventure party for your child’s next birthday, priced from $180 for up to 10 children. Bayside Rock Indoor Climbing & Adventure

Centre is at 9 Network Drive, Carrum Downs, (Melway 98 D12), phone 9775 1557. For

A market with the community at heart BITTERN Sunday Market has a long association with the town of Bittern and the Hastings area. The first market was on Sunday 20 July 1980, and it was monthly. It enjoyed considerable success and in March 1989 the market went weekly. It is managed by an elected volunteer committee. The aim is “to a conduct a weekly market on Sundays at Bittern, the site fees to be disbursed for the welfare of the community or other organisations as deemed appropriate”. The first recorded donation, in September 1983, was $500 to Bittern fire brigade. Total donations to the community now exceed $480,000, not bad for a small market of 65 stalls. In 1999 the market started giving scholarships to local primary schools and Western Port Secondary College.

The market has always supported local schools and it was decided this was a way some students could benefit directly by receiving the scholarship money themselves. The two scholarships offered were $100 each to two children at each school per year. This has been well received and 15 schools are involved with the program. The committee has continued to fund youth groups, scholarships for students, primary schools and sporting groups, to name a few. The market has a dedicated group of stallholders who attend weekly despite the weather. The local community gives continued support to the market, enabling it to continue to serve the community. Marketgoers enjoy browsing through the wide variety of stalls, have a coffee and purchase a bargain or two.

Shameless pursuit of happiness By Stuart McCullough TRUTH be told, it took me a very long time to find Kate. The mere fact that I am 40 years of age and have not previously been married says it all. Indeed, many who know me well must have wondered whether I would ever find anyone willing to regard me as a suitable partner for life. Certainly, while it’s fair to say I’ve had my fair share of offers when it comes to wedlock, it must be said those offers were exclusively in email form, were from Russia and required me to deposit large amounts of money into a bank account as a sign of ‘good faith’. As much as I appreciated the repeated offers by strangers to travel around the world to live with me in exchange for cash, I declined them all. Call me old fashioned, but I hoped for something more. For a long time, I believed that in order for anyone to find me a suitable partner, I would need present a certain image of myself. Like a blue-light mosquito zapper, I hoped to lure people to my luminous glow. Through sheer hard work and determination, I was committed to creating a version of myself that the world at large would regard as irresistible. This, I now concede, resulted in any number of strange and, indeed, disingenuous attempts to make

Not the actual couple.

myself a more likeable and interesting person. Now seems as good a time as any to make a confession. I feel it may go some way to explaining what many of you may well have long suspected. My various eccentricities were, in fact, desperate and doomed attempts to be more interesting. For example, during the period 1994 to 1997, I wore a

woollen cardigan in the genuine belief that this would make me appear more sensitive. It must be understood that this was during the period in which the ‘Sensitive New Age Guy’ was said to be the ideal man, a theory I managed to singlehandedly disprove. Wearing a cardigan did not make me look ‘sensitive’. It made me look semi-retired.

What’ss on @ The Hasting Hastings Club

In the summer of 1997, I became the world’s worst vegetarian. This is something of an achievement as the world is full of vegetarians, many of whom range from ‘occasional’ through to ‘lapsed’. I did it not because I was overly concerned for the welfare of animals, although I did own several Morrissey albums, but because all the vegetarians I knew seemed interesting, not to mention healthy, and I thought it was as good a club as any to belong to. With the benefit of hindsight, I doubt that vegetarians were ever fooled by this blatant charade. The fact that I kept smothering my tofu with barbecue sauce was probably something of a giveaway. These days I regard myself as a ‘non-practising’ vegetarian and still regret the steakless summer of ’97. When I finally capitulated and returned to my true, carnivorous self I thought that outraged vegetarians would intervene and try and make me see the error of my ways. Instead, they greeted the news with a shrug of the shoulder, while I marked the occasion by a shoulder of lamb. The likelihood that a large number of animal activists will suddenly appear on my doorstep as part of an intervention is becoming ever more remote.

In 1989, I had my ears pierced. This, I believed, would give me the appearance of a hard-edged rebel with a heart of gold. Instead, it made me look like a poorly dressed pirate. This was partly attributable to the fact that the first earrings I owned were purchased from the local chemist and may have been designed with ladies north of 60 and a purple rinse firmly in mind. It is true, I feel that it’s difficult to look like a hard-edged rebel when you’re wearing earrings that rightly belong to Dame Edna Everage. From 1993 to 2002, I routinely carried large and difficult books with me wherever I went. These would be produced while on public transport for the sole purpose of impressing all those within my immediate vicinity and drawing attention to my awesome intellect. For years I carted the works of Foucault, Sartre, Camus and Nietzsche as a not-too-subtle means of advertising what a brainiac I was. It must be said, I do not remember a single word I read during that time. In fact, I doubt that carrying difficult books fooled anyone, although it did ensure that I always got a seat all to myself. In truth, all my attempts to make a better me failed spectacularly. I met Kate on 17 November

2005. My business partner had agreed to give a talk to some clients of a law firm, before booking himself an overseas holiday. I arrived not knowing anyone and it was then that I met Kate. What I remember most about that night is how easy it was to talk to her. I didn’t feel anxious or panicked. I didn’t feel the urge to re-insert my earrings, slap on a cardigan or pretend to be a vegetarian. There wasn’t any need. I could just be myself. In many ways, the conversation that we started that night has continued ever since. When I look back at the years before I met Kate, I don’t think of them as having been wasted, although I do deeply regret wearing that cardigan for as long as I did. I’d like to think that I was waiting for the right moment. I will be forever grateful to Kate. If history is any guide, it takes a person of extraordinary patience and grace to endure my myriad eccentricities. It seems as remarkable to me today that such a person should even exist. I am pleased to have found her, when I least expected it. www.stuartmccullough.com

Entertainment UK popsters Duran Duran named themselves after a character in Roger Vadim’s film Barbarella. The band formed in 1978, disbanded in 1990 and reformed in 1992. It recorded the New Romantic anthem Planet Earth in 1981, which raced into the UK charts, and Duran Duran looked set for world domination. Its eponymous debut album also contained Girls on Film. Hits following including Rio, Save a Prayer, Hungry Like the Wolf and Is There Something I Should Know? The unstoppable chart success continued with The Wild Boys, The Reflex and the live album Arena. The band split, reformed and in 1993 had two US top 10 singles, Ordinary World and Come Undone. Duran Duran also recorded the James Bond theme for the film View to a Kill (1985). Duran Duran tour Australia in 2012, six concerts to coincide with the release of its current album, All You Need is Now (Shock). The trip will comprise arena shows and outdoor concerts in Perth and the

Hunter Valley. Last in Australia in 2008, the band will showcase songs from the album as well as hits from a 30-year career. The album has been praised by fans and critics alike, and hit No. 1 on the download charts in the top 15 markets around the world when it was released. Produced by Grammy Award-winner Mark Ronson (Amy Winehouse, Adele, Kaiser Chiefs, Lily Allen) and mixed by Spike Stent (Madonna, Bjork, No Doubt), it features guest vocals/rap from long-time Duran Duran collaborator Ana Matronic of the Scis-

sor Sisters, and R&B/neo-soul superstar Kelis. The original Duran line-up of Simon Le Bon, John Taylor, Roger Taylor and Nick Rhodes continues to reign supreme as one of the biggest British bands of all time – reimagining pop music, creating innovative videos and winning over millions of new fans with a unique fusion of music, art, technology and fashion. Duran Duran has sold more than 80 million records, had more than 30 hit singles and won six lifetime achievement awards. The band performs at Rod Laver Arena on Monday 19 March. Tickets 132 849 or www.duranduranmusic. com www.daintygroup.com *** ALSO touring next year: There are still some tickets for the

under-respected. All this without mentioning the treatment of the $8 an hour workers at the Baiada chicken factory in Laverton North working in less than ideal conditions and criticised by Agriculture Minister Peter Walsh for “putting animals at risk”? I respect the fact that it’s almost Christmas, Teddy, so I won’t mention the stripping back of our beloved Rosebud Hospital. Ever been from Rosebud to Frankston in an ambulance? Make sure you’re strapped in tight. Building up the coffers for the next election, I suspect. *** TASTE is strange indeed. I’m a firm believer in laughter as an antidote to melancholia and grief, having experienced both. “Man that is born of a woman, is of short continuance, and full of trouble.” Laughter is medicine, so I love comedy, satire in particular but, please, underplayed. I go back to the best – Jack Benny, Burns and Allen right up to today’s best. What I don’t like is this assumption that some comics display about our Australian character; the over-the-top Ocker concept. Paul Hogan was funny, sometimes spoilt by this necessity to belittle our national character. John Doyle is occasionally funny as Rampaging Roy Slavin. Greig Pickhaver (H G Nelson) is not funny, never was.

Barry Humphries is accorded royalty status as is his due mostly, except when he insults our lowest comment denominator and particularly when his far-right views come into focus. Dave Hughes and Shaun Micallef? Give me a break. *** SOME people go through life without enemies? I cannot remember when I couldn’t name at least two and that only includes the obvious ones; those who take a dislike for reasons best known to themselves. At racetracks for 37 years, the last 10 as a supervisor, I had a female boss forever trying to “get me”. In the Commonwealth Public Service I was reported half a dozen times; once to Canberra for “answering the counter in a suggestive manner”? Ushers at the movies as a teenager? Gestapos. I was innocent! Never bothered me. Simply wondering what it is that rubs the odd person up the wrong way? A persecution complex, or should I shower more? *** DO men like females? Are females our equals or sometimes superior? The Amazons of Greek mythology not only participated in fighting and controlled politics but also exclusively made up both the population and the fighting force. With females now available for frontline duties as a fighting force and

our Queen, Governor-General and Prime Minister all females, it can appear that the previous order of things is undergoing change. Far from it. I look at reports of the Taliban attitude to females in Afghanistan. In Papua New Guinea 67 per cent of women are beaten by their husbands; in Tuvalu half the females lost their virginity in forced sex; in Samoa 46 per cent are physically abused; Fiji 66 per cent and likewise Vanuatu. An AusAID survey reveals nearly one in three are sexually abused before they turn 15. Then there’s the unreported happenings to females in the Democratic Republic of the Congo. Here in Australia females are subjected to domestic abuse, spousal abuse, battering, family violence, and intimate partner violence. It’s all very well to say different countries, different customs, but you have to ask yourself if men, even perhaps the majority of men, have a secret fear of females? Thoughts never spoken? *** WHY is it that a Greens representative is so immediately recognisable on television? Is it their clothes, their way of speaking or is it that they resemble the up and coming breed of theatre and film assistant directors? Former hippies who have seen the light or intellectual odd bods? Sarah HansonYoung looked a bit that way initially, but not now. Look out Bob.

By Gary Turner www.eltonjohn.com Universal Music has released the 2011 reissue of the album Some Girls, which introduced the Rolling Stones to a new generation of fans. Some Girls topped the US charts over three decades and remains the bestselling album of their career. The reissue includes gems from the Rolling Stones vault “discovered” by producer Don Was. Mick Jagger’s love of 1970s funk is reflected in Miss You and the album has the Keith Richards’ classic Before They Make Me Run. Thirty years on from its original release, the remastered, deluxe edition contains Respectable, Beast of Burden, Miss You, So Young, When the Whip Comes Down and Tallahassee Lassie. www.rollingstones.com www.getmusic.com.au

A Grain of Salt WAR and Peace (aquatic centre, Rosebud foreshore) continues. Councillors have dismissed my brilliant suggestion of the “Rye Aquatic Centre” with Judy Durham singing The Carnival is Over. Voting was 6-5 to back the Rosebud Foreshore Reserve Coastal Management Plan. I can imagine Eunice Cain’s interjections watched by aficionados John Cain and David Harrison, but why must they personalise those with opposing opinions? Mother told me years ago “Why be nasty when nice is so much better”. Cr Tim Rodgers suggested they failed to consult residents. Funny man. Still, might be worth putting it to a vote, but what if they vote for? I have no problem with Eunice & Co’s point of view; just that problem of appreciating other points of view. Let us hope our new mayor Frank Martin (aka Russell Mockridge) and deputy, the beautiful Anne Shaw, are properly prepared for battle with the usual suspects. *** NOTHING changes, as I’ve often said. Teddy’s mob gets stuck into Brumby’s mob about taxes, gets into government, makes a fortune from rising water bills, continues on with speed cameras saga, gets his minister to scream about nurses putting children at risk knowing it’s his mates creating the risk and knowing we all agree that nurses are underpaid and

By Cliff Ellen *** I WISH my two mates, handsome Greggy Hunt and aquatic Marty Dixon, a Merry Christmas. Keep those pictures coming; they’re on my fridge as pinups. Also our melodious Prime Minister for her courage, and all the RSL poker players who keep my beer at a manageable price.

Joke!!! A WOMAN brings a duck into the veterinary clinic and says “I think my duck is unwell”. The vet takes a look at the duck, examines its heart, checks from head to tail and says “Lady, your duck is dead”. The women says: “No, I am not so sure, can you check into it a little bit further.” So the vet whistles and in comes his golden labrador dog. The dog puts his paws up on the table and sniffs the duck from front to back, shakes his head and leaves the room. The vet says “Lady, your duck is dead”. The woman says: “No, no, no, I am not so sure that my duck is dead. Can you please check again?” The vet whistles again and in comes his cat. The cat jumps up on the table, sniffs the duck from head to tail, shakes his head and leaves the room. “I’m sorry, lady, but your duck is dead!” The woman says: “Okay, I’ll accept that the duck is dead. Now how much do I owe you?” Well, the vet says, that will be $285. The woman says: “$285 – for what?” The vet says: “The diagnosis was free, but the lab costs were $135 and the cat scan was $150.”

Summer Motoring

Western Port

Check the car before summer journey BEFORE the holidays, and a road trip to your favourite destination, a pre-summer check of your car should always be a priority. According to the RACV website, the most common problem affecting motorists during summer is an overheated engine, but a few simple checks can reduce your risk of being stranded. The pre-summer checklist should include not only the radiator and cooling system, but also the electrical system, brakes and tyres, plus an overall “spring clean”. Cooling system TOP up your radiator coolant to the required level, taking care to add the correct amount of coolant mixture as recommended by the vehicle manufacturer. Check all radiator hoses (including heater hoses) for firmness, replace any that are spongy or leaking, and keep spares of the main hoses and belts in the boot for emergencies. The fan belt and any other drive belts, such as for air-conditioning or power steering, need to be inspected thoroughly – for fraying and correct tension – so they do not slip, and any belts that are even slightly frayed should be replaced. Electrical MODERN batteries are maintenance free but you should check the water levels and top them up if necessary. Use distilled

water – never use tap water as it will harm the battery. Routine maintenance should include removing any corrosion from the battery terminals, which can then be smeared with petroleum jelly to slow the corrosion process. An added precaution is to wipe the high tension leads, spark plugs and distributor cap with a dry cloth. Tyres ALL tyres, including the spare,

must be properly inflated to cope with the demands of long trips and hot weather. Check the pressures when the tyres are cold. Recommended tyre pressures are printed on a sticker affixed to most cars. Tread depth should not be less than a match head, while many tyres now have tread wear indicators to remove the guesswork. Uneven wearing of tyres may indicate a fault with the steering,

suspension or wheel alignment, and these items should be checked if in doubt. Brakes CONSULT a brake specialist if the car has a tendency to pull to one side when braking, if the brake pedal goes too close to the floor or has any other symptoms that seem unusual. Check the hand brake as well – park the car on a hill, put it in neutral and, if it does not hold firm on the handbrake, have it checked and adjusted. Clean lights and windows CAR windows should always be kept clean, as dirty glass can drastically reduce the driver’s vision when heading towards oncoming headlights or a low sun. Dirt increases the effect of glare. Exterior dirt is easy to wash off, but it can be a constant battle to keep the inside of the glass free from the hazy film that builds up when a car is parked in the sun. The “haze” can usually be wiped off with a chamois, methylated spirits, or most domestic glass or general cleaners, but there is no magic formula to eliminate the problem altogether. For good visbllity, keep the windscreen washer bottle topped up, and clean all lights and lenses.

Bowl-narring’s A rated green Greens old and new: Far left, the club ran Cow Lotto, an unusual method to raise funds for the replacement green, left, which has been rated suitable for championship matches.

By Yard On LAWN bowlers are often asked what they do in the off-season and members of Balnarring Bowls and Social Club have a simple answer – for the last 10 months they’ve been watching grass grow. The club’s number one green was ageing and needed to be replaced, so the committee decided it would be dug up and replaced. But first they would raffle off the green, which occurred in

November last year. Many people wondered how they would raffle a lawn bowls green, but the answer was also simple. They held a ‘Cow Lotto’. First you mark the old green into squares and sell them. Then you find a cow, or in this case a young calf, and after giving it a good feed, take it for a walk around the green. Sooner or later, and in this case it was later, the calf needed to do what a calf needs to do after a good feed, and

they buyer of the ‘right’ square won a large sum of money. Club chairman Charlie Burgess said the Cow Lotto and other fundraising activities by the club meant that work could start. “The earthmovers arrived, the old green was removed and new drainage installed. Then came the soil and Tifdwarf grass,” he said. “Our members then sat back and carefully watched and waited. It grew into a beautiful lawn bowls green,

which is the envy of many other clubs on the Mornington Peninsula. “The hard work to replace the green paid off after an inspection by the Bowls Victoria greens inspection committee, which gave it an A rating, meaning it was suitable for championship matches. “Thanks to the committee, construction team, greenkeepers and many volunteers, the green has now been opened. “About 30 members enjoyed their

first social lawn bowls game on this magnificent green.” The club invites people of all ages to view the green and join “barefoot community bowls” at 5pm every Friday over summer after the Christmas and new year break. Bowls and tuition is free as is a sausage sizzle. For details, visit the club’s website at www.balnarringbowls.com or phone Charlie Burgess on 5983 9794 or the club 5983 1655.

Stalwart families the life blood of Blues THERE are a number of families who have put a lot of work and effort into this club of ours, and two that come to mind are the Mirabella and the French families. There were nine Mirabella boys and I think they all played football for the club. Frank I can just remember as a veteran; he was a very polished player and gave Hastings long service. Jack, also a good footballer, had his career shortened by a serious accident resulting in the loss of three fingers; he continued to give valuable service on the committee for a number of years. Jim also did more than his share for the club, being captain of a premiership side. Sandy and “Kruger” also made

their contribution. Tony, one of the best full-backs Hastings has ever had, was also president of the club and a committeeman for many years. I don’t think that there was any job at the club that Tony did not have a hand in, including trainer and manager of the seconds for many years, and his contributions were rewarded with lifemembership. “Yanna” was another stylish player who went from Hastings to Footscray in the old VFL. The youngest of the family, “Sonny”,

also played at full-back and, although he was the smallest of the boys, he was one of the hardest hitting footballers I have ever seen. Then, of course, there was “Boysey” who was the club’s best “highest and lowest” seller! Of the next generation, Jack’s son John also displayed the Mirabella flair for football but, unfortunately for Hastings, he did not play for long. Tim’s two sons, Dennis and Jimmy, played many fine games, while Laurie, who has inherited his father’s tradition of playing straight ahead, is still carrying on the Mirabella tradition. The French family also has a record that they can be equally proud of. Jack French senior and his wife were very actively involved in the

club many years ago – Jack was a committeeman and delegate, and earned life membership, while Mrs French worked on the women’s committee for many years. The French boys wore the blue jumper with distinction and now grandson Ian continues the good work both on and off the field. His contribution includes two or three hours every Saturday morning marking out the oval, which is hard work as I have done it on quite a few occasions. Thanks, Ian. Then, of course, there is that other member of the clan who came to Hastings many years ago with his hat pulled down over one eye, headed straight for the football ground, and

his efforts on the committee, including a term as secretary, for a number of years was rewarded with another life membership for the French family. Although no longer a committeeman, Eddy does not miss a meeting and, while he might be a bit slow and grumpy, he does a sterling job for the boys each Saturday. Thanks to you, too, Ed. These are the kind of people who have helped to lay the foundations for our club. With efforts such as these, our club has to be strong.

CERBERUS Deaths spark calls G O L F C L U B for safety on bays POLICE and safety experts have issued warnings following the deaths of two kayakers whose bodies were found washed ashore at Seaford and Carrum on Tuesday 29 November. The two men had left Sandringham at about 6.30am the previous day, but were not reported missing until 11pm. Police said they were wearing lifejackets but were inexperienced and using their kayaks for the first time. Inspector Tim Hansen was reported as saying the deaths were a reminder to take into account weather conditions on Port Phillip in the lead-up to the holiday season. Transport Safety Victoria (TSV) said other kayakers should treat the drownings “as a sobering reminder of the importance of boating safety”. Director of maritime safety Peter Corcoran said increasing numbers of kayakers will head out on the water as the weather warmed. “Kayakers need to refresh their knowledge of important safety procedures and be aware of the risks they face,” he said. “Kayaks are more susceptible to the impact of

wave and weather conditions and can easily capsize.” TSV issued a safety checklist for all boaters:  Always wear an approved life jacket.  Check the weather before going out.  Let someone know where you are going, the point of departure and when you plan to return.  Make sure safety equipment is in good working condition.  Carry a marine radio or mobile phone in a waterproof pouch.  Carry a registered EPIRB, a personal locator beacon or flares to raise the alarm in an emergency.  Wear suitable clothing for the conditions.  Remember that conditions change suddenly.  Display some identification on your vessel such as a car registration or a telephone number.  Attach reflective tape to your vessel and paddles to increase visibility. To obtain a free recreational boating safety handbook, call Transport Safety Victoria on 1800 223 022 or visit www.transportsafety.vic.gov.au/ maritime-safety
