The show went on Festival goes ahead without permit

Festival fun: Five-year-old Tristan Aylward runs off an inflatable slide to find more rides during Saturday’s Western Port Festival. More pictures by Cameron McCullough Pages 34, 35.

By Mike Hast HASTINGS’ Western Port Festival on the weekend operated without a permit from Mornington Peninsula Shire. The 45th festival was a success, according to organisers, but the three days before the event were hectic and stressful as the festival committee struggled to fulfil permit requirements set at the 11th hour by the shire’s events department. Crisis meetings, frantic phone calls and mixed messages from the shire soured the run-up to the Friday evening opening. The News understands permit requirements were tightened after WorkSafe inspectors upbraided the shire for breaches at the Australia Day celebration at Mornington Park. They included marquees not tied down correctly and exposed scaffolding at the rear of the music stage. Western Port festival chairman Steve Hosking said the shire sent a list of requirements to organisers on Tuesday, three days before the opening. Concerns included insufficient or non-complying fences; lack of waterfilled barricades and risk management strategy for the mini-motorbikes show; variable message signs installed late to warn of High St closure for the parade on Saturday; lack of plans for toilets, water and first aid; and incomplete insurance documentation. Two days later, with some conditions not met, the festival was at risk of being cancelled. The committee held a crisis meeting on Thursday night, which was attended by Cerberus Ward councillor David Garnock but no one from the shire’s events department. Cr Garnock said the shire was committed to the festival going ahead.

“At no stage has anyone said to me that they don’t want this event to go ahead,” he told the meeting. The meeting was told all requirements were to be fulfilled by 11am on Friday, a deadline that was extended at least twice during the day. If permit conditions could not be met, the committee needed to prepare a plan about how to cancel the festival. Steve Hosking was ropeable: “To have this thrown at us at the last minute is disgusting. “It’s almost like somebody doesn’t want this [festival] to go ahead.” On Monday, Mr Hosking said the festival had been organised by a new committee that was not formed until October. The committee had thought the shire’s events department was going to help pull the festival together, but this had not occurred. He said David Garnock and festival secretary Ross Topham had sat down with a shire events officer late last year to work through permit conditions. The committee thought it had met all requirements. “After the Thursday meeting, Hastings MP Neale Burgess, who was at the meeting, had organised 60 waterfilled barriers,” Mr Hosking said. “At 5pm on Friday, an hour before the festival was due to start, Cr Garnock said the shire had refused to issue the permit, known as a Places of Public Entertainment (POPE) permit.” Cr Garnock had asked the shire if the event would have to be cancelled. “We were told that it could go ahead if safety measures, security and insurance were all in place, which they were” he said.

Women’s day: Four of Mornington Peninsula Shire’s 11 councillors are women. Making plans to mark next month’s International Women’s Day are, from left, Antonella Celi, Bev Colomb and mayor Lynn Bowden.

Thai girl boxers exploited A DOCUMENTARY about two eightyear-old girls boxing to raise money for their families in Thailand is being shown in Mornington to mark International Women’s Day. The screening night at Mornington Peninsula Shire’s Mornington office will also include a performance by the Ling Marra Choir. The annual International Women’s Day celebrates the economic, political and social achievements of women past, present and future. Mayor Cr Lynn Bowden said it “marks an important chance to reflect

on how far the campaign for women’s rights has come, and it serves as a reminder of the struggles that many women around the world still encounter today because of their gender”. Buffalo Girls follows the lives of the young Thai girls who are involved in underground child-boxing tournaments to win money for their povertystricken families. “The documentary provides insight into the controversial world of child boxing and is a thought-provoking event as we reflect on international women’s day and its meaning – both

locally, nationally and internationally,” Cr Bowden said. Donations from the film will go to the International Women’s Development Agency, the only Australian development agency focused on gender equality and women’s rights and commitment to child protection in Asia and the Pacific. The International Women’s Day screening of Buffalo Girls starts 6pm on Thursday 7 March at Mornington Peninsula Shire’s Queen St, Mornington, office.

At Hastings Family Dental we believe that caring for your children’s teeth from an early age is of the utmost importance. Children’s teeth need to be looked after gently and carefully. Baby teeth or primary teeth help children to speak clearly and chew, they also pave the way for secondary teeth. By following a simple dental routine, you can help give your children healthy teeth and gums. It is very important not to wait until your child experiences a toothache to visit the dentist. By having routine check-ups from an early age, it can help to eliminate the fear of the dental setting and establish a good dental routine they can follow throughout their lives. The first visit is usually a short one. Our aim is to give your child a chance to get to know our fantastic dental team and experience our modern clinic in a friendly and non-threatening manner. During this visit our dental team will do the following: Cavity risk assessment Examine your child’s teeth for decay Examine your child’s gums and soft tissue for disease or problems Evaluate the way your child’s teeth fit together, “the bite”. Identify any potential problems or deleterious habits. Show you and your child how to properly clean his or her teeth at home.

Bike man Bronson to the rescue TEN-year old Victoria Bardic was devastated when someone stole her bicycle during a visit to Marina View Van Village in Hastings. Co-owner Delina Skinner was none too happy either. She did some research and found Kevin Bronson of Santa’s Workshop. Mr Bronson, his wife Chrissy and helpers have been repairing and giving away children’s bikes for more than 27 years. His workshop was in Mornington before he moved to Cranbourne and, more recently, Officer. Mr Bronson reckons he has given away more than 100,000 bikes. Almost before you could say “velocipede”, Mr Bronson, Chrissy and their son Matthew, 8, arrived at Marina View with a new bike for Victoria. Nowadays Santa’s Workshop is also repairing wheelchairs and walkers for older people. Mr Bronson has another string to his bow – he has been entertaining people in retirement villages and nursing homes for more than 30 years, including many on the peninsula. For more information about Santa’s Workshop, call Kevin Bronson on 0488 774 781.

HUNDREDS of anglers will be using their favourite baits and seeking out the best fishing spots in this year’s Western Port Whiting Challenge. This weekend’s competition has more than $20,000 in prizes, including an aluminium boat with outboard motor and trailer. The first whiting weighed in at more than one kilogram will win $1000. The first three tagged whiting are worth $500 each. Fishing is allowed in Port Phillip and Western Port. The weigh-in closes at 6pm on Saturday 2 March while the Sunday weigh-in ends at 3.30pm followed by presentations and a barbecue at 4pm. Last year’s whiting challenge drew 350 competitors, including children, none of whom went home empty handed. For details and entry forms, go to or call 0438 402 312, 0413 154 791, 5979 4612 or 0407 839 878.

Former Flinders van land back on market THE former Flinders caravan park is on the market again. The two-hectare site was advertised on the weekend as including “a permit for 25 residential lots, three street frontages, once in a lifetime coastal opportunity and to be offered as a whole”. The land at 1-17 The Avenue was

bought by developers in August 2010 for $6.21 million. Last November, Mornington Peninsula Shire issued a permit for a 25-lot subdivision. A month later, the developers asked the shire to sell a laneway that crosses the property.

A report to councillors on 17 December stated that stage one of the subdivision was 17 lots (minimum 700 square metres in area) with stage two consisting of eight allotments of similar size and the lane. “The land is zoned Residential 1 in the planning scheme and is subject to several overlays which

affected the consideration of the planning application,” the report stated. The three metre wide 114 metre long lane has always formed part of the grounds of the former caravan park. It was valued at $48,000 with the final sale price being $54,120 after GST and consolidation fees had been added.

VOLUNTEERS across the Mornington Peninsula are being urged to take gloves to their local park, beach or reserve to help with Clean-Up Australia Day on Sunday 3 March. Last year more than 55 clean-up sites were registered across the peninsula with about 22 cubic metres of waste being collected. Volunteers can register their own site or turn up at a registered site with gloves, a hat, sturdy shoes, sunglasses and sunscreen.

LETTERS Port defences ON reading your recent article ‘Hastings misses the boat – warning’ (The News 19/2/13), our first reaction was to check the publication date was not 1 April given the commentary by William Barber with regard to the Port of Melbourne’s current status, future development and ship access. It also seems at odds with the usual thoughtful writing of Keith Platt. Melbourne punches above its weight as the maritime trade hub for southeastern Australia but does not claim to be the largest container port in the southern hemisphere. Durban (South Africa), Sao Paulo (Brazil) and Jakarta (Indonesia) are larger by volume – but with national populations of 50 million, 200 million and 240 million respectively, any reasonable analyst might suspect that to be the case. For the record, Melbourne handles around 150 per cent of the volume of Brisbane whose new terminal development is still awaiting its first ship arrival. We agree with that the new generation of 18,000 TEU vessels won’t call at Melbourne any time soon – nor will they be calling anywhere else in Australia for the foreseeable future. While we won’t be calling on Mr Barber’s “extensive experience in the maritime industry” any time soon, we do join other readers and learned maritime colleagues in welcoming Mike Lean and we wish him well in his new role as CEO of the Port of Hastings Development Authority. Stephen Bradford, CEO, Port of Melbourne Corporation

Dredging fear IN the 19 February edition of the Western Port News, marketing consultant William Barber was quoted

as saying that Western Port had none of the restrictions caused by Port Phillip’s narrow, shallow shipping channels. In the same article he was quoted as saying that it could quickly become “a reality with appropriate land infrastructure and a small amount of berth dredging”. He also cited the need for the new port to be able handle container ships that will be too large for Melbourne ports. In the light of this, the “small amount of dredging” does not ring true to me. Another factor that causes me concern came from an article in a local newspaper (which I have not been able to trace) dating back to when the Port of Hastings development was first mooted. I distinctly remember a retired harbourmaster being quoted as saying that he had cold sweats at night thinking of the perils of negotiating large ships through the Grossards Point/MacHaffie Reef area of Western Port. Given that the whole project is proposed to accommodate “super” container ships, the more likely result would be large-scale dredging and reef blasting. Given these factors alone, the effect on the finely tuned tidal flow in Western Port would be devastating. Add to this the inevitable pollution common to all large harbours and this wonderful bay will be lost forever. Do we want this to be our legacy to future generations? Chris Duffy, Balnarring

End of parade ON Saturday 23 February we had the Western Port Festival, and with more than 50 cars, tractors, trucks and bikes, it was a great turnout, which

we enjoyed very much. Last year we displayed our vehicles on the grass on the foreshore, but this year we got to the end of the parade and went in all directions. I was with six Fords and was confused. We weren’t told there was no display. We just got to the end the end of parade and were told “thank you very much, p-off”. We will not be back next year. If owners cannot display their cars after the parade then I hope you enjoyed this one, because I think this was probably the last parade you will see in Hastings. Norm McLean, Hastings

Otama surprise NEARLY choked on my coffee when reading your article on the “survey” conducted by [Hastings MP] Neale Burgess (“Yes buoys sub planners”, The News 19/2/13). I mean, what survey? I live overlooking the Hastings foreshore and have not seen any survey slips in reference to this [the submarine Otama being brought ashore as a tourist attraction]. I also recall the same suggestion being “put” some years ago and thought he was joking. I would be interested to see Mornington Peninsula Shire, which has responsibility to manage our foreshore, conduct a comprehensive survey in relation to this subject and speculate that the results would be as past: no submarine at Hastings. Historically, the people of Hastings have preferred to see the foreshore remain clear open public space – not cluttered up with a submarine along with buildings, an extended marina, hotels or any other conceivable infrastructure for a tourist precinct.

Space is highly valued and limited in this area. As I know (having been a former member and chair of the Hastings Foreshore Advisory Committee), the shire dropped the ball in establishing a coastal management plan for the foreshore some years ago. At the time, bringing the Otama ashore at Hastings was not considered appropriate and nothing has changed since. I believe it is ridiculous to claim that bringing the Otama ashore at Crib Point would “kill the whole project”. It’s rubbish that this is the only area suitable on this side of Western Port. By all means, though, let’s hear more on this from Neale Burgess. In terms of the financing and projected figures, to say people’s reasoning for voting “no” was because they didn’t want public money spent is lame, shortsighted and a blight on the intelligence of the people of Hastings. I’m surprised the Otama group is still viable at all, given its costs over the years. One wonders at the viability now and into the future of any proposal. Also, where on the foreshore could it go? Bulldoze the anglers club, take up space used by the yacht club or place it at the end of the breakwater surrounding the marina? Maybe just clutter up another part of the foreshore, which is in dire need of a proper and transparent planning process, such as a coastal management plan and providing far greater community consultation an involvement. My suggestion to Neale Burgess is to stay focused on state issues, leaving the shire to get off its collective butt and start consulting with the community in relation to establishing a management plan for Hastings foreshore. Peter Edhouse, Hastings

Servos scaled down

Bridged: Veronica Nenuz of Bicycle Network Victoria leads the way across the new trial bridge at Seaford for Carrum MP Donna Bauer, Roads Minister Terry Mulder, Jason Den Hollander of Bicycle Network Victoria and Geoff Rayner, LMA chief operating officer.

By Mike Hast SERVICE station builder AA Holdings is about to submit new plans for its twin service centres on either side of Peninsula Link freeway at Baxter. The first plan was knocked back by Mornington Peninsula Shire in December 2011. AA Holdings went to the state planning tribunal last June seeking to have the decision overturned but the tribunal sided with the shire. The freeway service centres were meant to be operating a month ago when Peninsula Link opened to traffic on Friday 18 January. AA Holdings’ town planner David Hansen last week said the second proposal had not yet been submitted to the shire but The News believes the new plan is a scaled-down version of the original including having fewer retail outlets. The first proposal included a “truckies’ lounge”, showers, toilets and laundry; baby changing room, children’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. AA Holdings is a land development and management company based in Collingwood that builds service stations and car wash centres. It has about 50 service stations in Victoria including on the peninsula at Mt Eliza and Dromana, with car washes in McCrae and Rye. It has twin FSCs similar to the ones it wants to build at Baxter on the Calder Fwy in Keilor North, Hume Fwy at Wallan, Princes Fwy at Officer, on EastLink tollway between Ferntree Gully Rd and Wellington Rd and on the Geelong Bypass at Lovely Banks.

ing McClelland Gallery and Sculpture Park, Ballam Park Homestead and Sages Cottage in Baxter. “This last bridge will make it easier for more people to use the trail by connecting Seaford to Carrum Downs and Frankston North.” Mr Mulder said people had the opportunity to vote on a logo for the new path. “We’re encouraging everyone with an interest in the trail to visit the Linking Melbourne Authority website and

have a say on the logo,” he said. The logo will be painted on the trail to help cyclists and pedestrians find their way, he said. To view a map of the path and the sections available or to vote on the logo, visit www.linkingmelbourne.vic.

On yer bikes – last Link trail bridge opened CYCLISTS will be able to ride from Moorooduc to Patterson Lakes when the Peninsula Link Trail is completed mid-year. About 17.5 kilometres of the trail is useable, about 70 per cent of the total path. On Friday, the trial’s final pedestrian and cycling bridge was opened in Seaford over the Frankston Freeway. Sections along the Mornington Tourist Rail Line at Moorooduc and through the Pines Flora and Fauna Re-

serve in Frankston South are yet to be completed. The trail begins at Patterson River in Patterson Lakes, connecting to the existing gravel Dandenong Creek Trail, which joins the EastLink Trail. The path ends in Moorooduc at Mt Eliza Regional Park near the intersection of Moorooduc Highway and Eramosa Rd West. Roads Minister Terry Mulder walked part of the trail to mark the opening of the final bridge.

“Since day one of Peninsula Link’s opening, we have had rave reviews from cyclists and pedestrians about the new trail, which is opening progressively over the coming months,” Mr Mulder said. “It’s helping people to get out and about – whether they are walking the dog, walking or riding to school or work, or getting fresh air and exercise outside. “There are many attractions that people can stop at along the trail, includ-

Plan for $$20m 20m start on quarry tip By Mike Hast THE proponent of the Arthurs Seat quarry tip will spend about $20 million to set it up. Peninsula Waste Management CEO Vince Latham said most of the money would be spent on “protecting the environment”. About 250 megalitres (166 Olympic pools) would have to be pumped out of the quarry over four months into Sheepwash Creek, which runs into Port Phillip at Safety Beach. The bottom of the pit would be shaped and lined with a 2mm layer of high-density plastic, geotextile fabric, crushed rock and a second layer of geotextile fabric, Mr Latham said during an inspection of the old quarry on Tuesday morning last week. The pit sides would be lined with a 2.1-metre thick gravel wall, which would be built up as the tip filled. The trustees of the R E Ross Trust, which owns Hillview Quarries in Dromana, set up Peninsula Waste Management in 2008 “to explore the possibility of developing a waste management business at a disused quarry owned by the trust”. PWM is expected to submit to Mornington Peninsula Shire an application to turn the old quarry into a landfill, or tip, in about two weeks. Running parallel with the shire application is PWM’s request to the Environment Protection Authority for a works approval permit. Mr Latham said the company had hired an independent auditor accredited with the EPA to prepare its submis-

sion and meet stringent environmental protection criteria. Pioneer pulled 300,000 tonnes of granite a year out of the quarry over 35 years before it closed in 1998 when the company reached the limit of its quarrying licence. Driving up the quarry access road off Boundary Rd, Dromana, takes you into a world not seen by members of the public. Self-sown pine trees line the track and march up the valley sides. The track gets steeper and suddenly we are on the northern edge of a huge pit 90 metres deep. Below is sparkling blue water about 20 metres deep that has accumulated in from ground water and runoff. Mr Latham said the quarry had a capacity of about 3.8 million cubic metres and he expected it would take about 150,000 tonnes of waste a year. PWM’s development manager, David Maltby, a geologist and landfill expert, said southeast Melbourne was running out of landfills. “Two in Clayton will be full within three and a half years. The Hallam landfill has capacity, but it won’t have room for waste from all councils in the region,” he said. Mr Maltby predicted shire residents would see an extra $100 on their rates bill each year if the shire had to send waste out of the area when the Rye landfill closed in about five years. The contents of compactor trucks, which pick up people’s bins each week, would have to be loaded onto 20-tonne trucks and carted to tips in Hallam or Werribee. Mr Latham said fire protection

measures would include “several fire mains around the perimeter” of the 60-hectare site as well as water tanks. Mr Maltby said there would be fuel reduction. An old fire access track between the quarry land and Arthurs Seat Rd had recently been re-formed. Power lines would be insulated, Mr Latham said. This meant there would be no recurrence of the fire that started in the quarry in January 2008 when a tree fell on power lines. Meanwhile, objectors are getting organised to oppose the proposal. An open letter to the Ross Trust trustees was sent last week.

Spokesman Kelvin Banks, whose property is next to the quarry, said neighbours and objectors were concerned about potential noise, smell, fire, leaking methane gas, extra traffic and loss of property values. The quarry is surrounded by pristine, green wedge land that is protected by planning overlays for bushfire, significant landscape, vegetation protection, erosion management and environmental significance, he said. He queried the sanity of turning the quarry, which is adjacent to Arthurs Seat State Park, into a rubbish tip. “There was an earlier plan to make it

into a park and Sheepwash Creek runs beside the quarry land. Will the directors of Peninsula Waste Management and the trustees of Ross Trust provide the community with personal guarantees that nothing will go wrong?” Objectors have created a website: PWM and the Ross Trust have a tiger by the tail. Existing objectors are likely to be joined by property owners on Arthurs Seat Rd, including millionaire wine growers. The issue will heat up after the planning application goes to the shire council next month.

MRS Emu is just down from the mountain, equipped not with stone tablets inscribed by the frightful finger of the Lord, but with serious news and a theory, which she begins babbling before the door stops squeaking behind her. Emu takes a deep breath and awaits the divine revelation. “The Arthurs Seat tower is gone!” she exclaims indignantly. “Not a trace of it left. But no sign of work on the new chairlift.” How could she not know the tower was gone, thinks the patient spouse; it was in all the papers. “Nothing but silence on the chairlift, but I’ll bet there’s lots of talk behind closed doors.” She sits and fixes Emu with a frightful eye. “They’ll reroute the road,” she says conspiratorially, “behind where the tower stood, and take over the old road for a bigger car park. “They may have to hack away part of the cliff edge where the old chairlift terminus is, to get the new chairs or gondolas or whatever they are up and over, to the new terminus – where the tower was.” The last phrase was heavy with bitterness, although Emu can’t recall her expressing fondness for the tower. “There’ll be a wide gash up Arthurs Seat under the path of the new chairlift. Lots of trees will have to go.” Her theory is now sounding like the Book of Revelation. “It’ll probably be visible from the moon, or at least from Melbourne skyscrapers.” She is warming to her work. “I’ll bet they are trying to get some of Arthurs Seat State Park, too, for car parking, restaurants, mini-golf, convention centres, hotels, that sort of thing. “You don’t bring tourists all the way up to the top of Arthurs Seat then have nothing for them to do but look at the vista through pay telescopes, and nowhere they can buy an ice cream, lunch, a souvenir T-shirt and mug with ‘I love Arthurs Seat’ before they go back down to Dromana.”

Emu ventures some tourists might like to picnic in Seawinds Gardens, perhaps stroll across to the splendid views of the southern peninsula, watch the pleasure craft and perhaps container ships plying to and fro like toys on the great flat glow of Port Phillip. “Perhaps,” she says frostily. “But don’t forget the government has opened its parks up to commercial tourist operators. “And don’t think a Macquarie Bank man” (she means Simon McKeon, the man fronting the chairlift consortium) “will not have an eye on making a quid. All those chairlift passengers will have money to spend and it’s his job to help them spend it. “They don’t call Macquarie Bank the ‘Millionaires Factory’ because of its philanthropy, you know.” Emu has fond memories of Arthurs Seat. For eons young emus burned their testosterone racing each other up the scrubby-treed 314 metres to its summit, to impress young female emus. Lyrebirds may have a talent for cheap imitation, we used to say dismissively, but they’re hopeless up a slope. He shares the Blushing Bride’s fears for the summit. Indigenous species including emus agree that the current low-scale developments are just about as much as Arthurs Seat (Aboriginal name Wonga) can stand without becoming gaudy. Alas, merchant bankers with lofty ambitions have their own peculiar view of the need to develop, a view many Mornington Peninsula indigenes don’t share. Emu and his BB are in rare, blissful agreement. He makes her a nice cup of tea.

Permit knock-back fails to stop festival Continued from Page 1

The festival started an hour later than scheduled. Cr Garnock said the committee had done “a magnificent job running a successful and safe festival�. BlueScope Steel had withdrawn its sponsorship last year and organisers had worked hard to replace $15,000, about a quarter of the total budget. Cr Garnock said the committee would hold a review in early March and then meet with shire officers to

work through the issues that had nearly scuttled the festival. Hastings police yesterday reported the festival had passed without incident and the crowd had been “well behavedâ€?. Hastings police boss Senior Sergeant Steve Duffy said: “There were no real issues, no fights, and the event went off well from our point of view.â€? ď Ž Western Port Festival pictures on Pages 34-35.

By Mike Hast FRANKSTON’S old post office on the corner of Davey St and Nepean Highway, which has been a licensed restaurant, bar and most recently a strip club, is set for a new life as a restaurant and tavern with an outdoor rooftop deck. Councillors have approved the restoration and alteration of the two-storey building, which is listed on a heritage overlay in the Frankston planning scheme for its “aesthetic significance as a rare and largely intact example of a post office in the interwar Modern style�. A report to the council stated developer Stewart Brasier of Frankston South would reinstall the windows, blocked as part of operating conditions when the building was the Kittens strip venue between 1997 and last year. The black building will be repainted in the original colour scheme, but the biggest change will be removal of the roof and creation of a rooftop deck for 150 patrons. About 350 patrons will be permitted inside. Mr Brasier, a 25-year veteran of the hospitality industry, took over the building’s lease last year. The interior has been gutted and work is set to start next week. He hopes to open the venue, to be called The Deck, in about three months.


for enjoyable retirement

Back to the future: A plan to convert the old post office, most recently a strip club, into a restaurant and tavern with a rooftop deck evokes the old days of Frankston’s “Pub Corner�. Picture: Yanni

The council has given the OK for the rooftop deck to open from 11am to 1am, and the restaurant/tavern from 11am to 3am Sunday to Thursday, and 11am-4.30am Friday and Saturday. No amplified music will be permitted on the deck. The Deck will join other late night liquor venues including the Grand Hotel, Daveys Hotel and the Pier Hotel. The report to councillors stated: “The liquor licences issued for these venues all contain a range of conditions relating to crowd control, maximum number of patrons and hours of operation.

“On most days these venues operate from 7am till 3am on the following day with some parts of some venues allowed to operate until 5am. “All licences have a special condition where patrons are not permitted to enter or re-enter the premises after 2am on any day except where there is a gaming room.� The conversion of the old post office building to a tavern means the Nepean Highway and Davey St intersection will once again have four “pubs�. The council has asked Mr Brasier to “address the potential of any unreasonable noise� from the rooftop deck.

All in a day’s ride: A cyclist is greeted by the children as she rides through a Cambodia village.

Cambodian cycle tour to help hospice PENINSULA Home Hospice is looking for fundraisers with a sense of adventure. The palliative care organisation that supports people living at home with a life-threatening illness as well as their families has teamed up with a travel agency to raise money and offer a bike ride across Cambodia. People signing up for the Cambodia Cycle Challenge will each aim to raise $6000, which will be split with PHH, a Cambodian village and an 11-day 440km cycling tour. “While in Cambodia, our fundraisers will also get to do some hands-on volunteer work that will also have a positive impact on Cambodians who are struggling with daily life,� hospice marketing and fundraising officer Kim Michod said. The trip is being organised through Raw Travel and fundraisers have until the end of October to reach the target. Ms Michod said participants would be given advice and support “every step of the way� on the best ways of raising money. “Each fundraiser will be given an individual link to Every Day Hero, a web-based fundraising platform, where online donations can be made

and tax receipts are issued to supporters. All donations over $2 are fully tax deductible.� Ms Michod said the cycling trip in Cambodia would include “hands-on volunteer work� as well as attending a cooking school “where a percentage of the profits go directly to the village�. “They will also support Cambodian charity HUSK by participating in the Day in the Life program in Kompheim, a small village of farmers and itinerant workers about 16 kilometres from Siem Reap. “A host family will look after the group, welcoming people into their homes and lives with the family receiving a small payment and a larger contribution made to the village fund, which is used for special projects such as water filters and wells. “The day will be spent joining the family and possibly helping with harvest, doing some planting, weaving thatch and learning to drive a bullock cart – real hands-on volunteering at its best.� To participate in the Cambodia Cycle Challenge, visit or call 1300 208 245 or 9784 3303.

Western Port News 26 February 2013

THE strong Mornington Peninsula surfing community is supporting the screening of a documentary in Frankston to help children in a mission on the coast of Mexico. Surf-related businesses and their suppliers have donated more than $2000 in goods and services for a short auction following the screening of Somewhere Near Tapachula at Cube 37, Frankston Arts Centre, 9pm on Saturday 2 March. The documentary by two young Australians traces the story of Queensland couple Alan and Pam Skuse who sold up everything to keep open the refuge where children are taught and encouraged to surf as part of their care and education. Peninsula Surf founder Ted Bainbridge will auction a select few items, including a $1300 Bob McTavish Original 9ft 6in (2.85m) surfboard, a $529 Quiksilver steamer wetsuit and surfing lessons from Prue Latchford’s East Coast Surf School at Point Leo. The board is courtesy of Peninsula Surf and Global Surf Industries (which already sponsors the mission) while Peninsula Surf has provided the wetsuit. Bainbridge describes the McTavish board as “a beach-break specialist with extreme threestage rocker profile. It is loose and fast off the tail but retains good nose-riding ability�. Features include a hippy pintail, 60/40 rails, double concave tail, single concave nose, and

nose bevels to aid stability. “This is a classic longboard, ready to surf or hang on the wall above the bar,� Bainbridge said. The men’s 4/3mm hydrolock chest zip steamer wetsuit is made from lightweight and flexible Fiberlite neoprene and Bio-fleece thermal neoprene. The award-winning documentary will be shown in the limited-space Cube 37 at 9pm. Producers and directors Stefan Hunt and Jonno Durrant said the “surfing experience and power of the ocean have had a phenomenal impact on the children�. “Each year, volunteers from all around the world, including Australians, travel to Tapachula to work at the orphanage and surf with the Mission Mexico children.� And each year as part of Frankston’s Ventana Fiesta organisers nominate a special cause, which this year is “Mission Mexico�. Bainbridge said surfers would understand how surfing attracts and benefits the traumatised Mexican children under the Skuses’ care. “Because they know what feelings these children are getting from surfing, peninsula surfers will want to help,� he said. Auction items will be displayed before the screening. Entry is by donation. Details and bookings: Gill Thompson, 0409 860 407

As Principal of Hastings Westpark Primary School I am excited and so is the community about the dramatic transformation which is taking place. As a school we are implementing the innovative Walker Learning Approach which is based on years of research to personalise student learning. It is a total approach to teaching and learning which combines the needs for children to be active participants in their learning through hands-on creative exploration and investigation which sits alongside formal instruction. The Walker Learning Approach has been fully implemented in Years P-2 and this year it is being introduced in Years 3-6 as an Inquiry Mode of learning. Since its introduction the level of student engagement has improved dramatically. The school is forging many exciting partnerships to provide our students with many opportunities. One of these exciting partnerships in 2013 is with Arts Victoria. The school has engaged well known musicians and artists to deliver a 20 week program titled Dream Catcher during terms 2 and 3 which will culminate with 2 concerts. As part of the school’s transformation Hastings Westpark will be renamed in 2014 as Wallaroo Primary School to strengthen links with the neighbouring Early Childhood Centre. The local community is very excited about this change. If you are considering a school that fosters creativity, special interests and talents, caters for individual learning needs, has a range of enrichment opportunities in a beautiful physical environment-we are well worth a visit.

Welcome to

So m e rville


Little things can cause big problems By Ron Gunn of Utow Caravans WE have found a disturbing trend while servicing caravans lately â&#x20AC;&#x201C; the battery on the breakaway system fitted to larger caravans is often flat and in desperate need of charging. It is a pretty simple system to check the battery condition: just push the button of the system inside your caravan and if the green light comes on it is okay, But if the red light comes on, it needs charging. If nothing comes on or you hear a buzzing sound, the battery is dead flat. We have found that the battery, which is rechargeable, is often not connected to anything to charge it. To test if everything is working okay, the trailer should be disconnected from the tow vehicle and pull the breakaway pin from the breakaway switch on the A-frame. The electric brakes and the brake lights should activate and the battery level light should illuminate. The brakes will release when the pin is replaced in the switch. The breakaway system is not, under any circumstances, to be used as a parking brake or security device. If the breakaway is used for these purposes, the battery will be flat in less than an hour and the brakes will release. Charging of the breakaway battery can be done via the tow vehicle breakaway unit auxiliary line or by connecting a small (8 amps maximum) battery charger to the red and black terminals on the front of the breaksafe box. The charging system in the breaksafe unit is a trickle charge circuit only and it may take several hours to fully recharge. If the battery has been completely flattened, the charging system within the breaksafe unit may not be able to fully recharge it and the battery

Suppliers of domestic & commercial lawn mowers

should be removed from the unit and charged with a normal car battery charger but do not do a rapid charge or overcharge. If the battery does not hold a charge, it may need to be replaced. The manufacturers recommend replacement every two years regardless of its test condition. When connecting the cable from the breakaway switch to the rear of the tow vehicle, make sure you attach it to a secure anchor point. Do not hook the cable to the tow ball or safety chain anchor. For more information either speak to us at Utow Caravans or your auto electrician. Utow Caravans can do servicing of your caravan and we are now qualified to do test and tag on electrical appliances.

Horticulture Club: my trip to lemon heaven By Stuart McCullough FAREWELL, dear supermarkets. For I will no longer be darkening your doors in search of low fat milk and a packet of barbecue shapes. From this day forth, I reject your recyclable bags, loyalty cards and propensity for ruining major holidays by pretending that they start months earlier than they really do (Easter in January? Please.) I will, henceforth, refuse to keep feeding your gluttonous, insatiable corporate souls. That’s because I am now, officially, a man of the land. About a month ago, the lemon tree on our back verandah finally gave forth its glorious bounty when it produced one lemon. This is no small achievement. In fact, given my history with plants, this has to be the most remarkable lemon in recorded history; enduring, as it did, all manner of mistreatment. Should the world descend into an atomic fugue tomorrow, all that will survive are the cockroaches and this lemon. What kind of civilisation they’ll build together doesn’t stand thinking about, but that’s probably not so such much beside the point as around the corner, seated at a corner table and awaiting a chai latte. The point is this: having now produced my own produce, I have decided that this is the thin end of the lemon wedge. If growing your own lemon seems a

trifle dull or even a bit ordinary, then you have some nerve even reading this far. To fully appreciate the awesome magnitude of this achievement, it’s important to take a step back, give the glasses a quick polish and cast a glance over my potted history with potted plants. My thumb is not green, nor does it have a greenish hue. It refuses to be anything other than “fleshy pink”. But it’s not the colour of this digit as its near-certain fatal impact on all forms of plant life that’s truly disturbing. I need only pull it from my pocket and indoor plants within a 50-metre radius feel a collective

shudder. Pots of herbs and windowbox cacti do not refer to my thumb as “green”. Instead, they call it “the widowmaker”. As is so often the case, the roots of the problem stem back to childhood. Back then, kids were forced to undertake forms of child labour that were known as “chores”. It’s a model adopted by several sneaker manufacturers where, under threat of punishment, young children are forced to perform tasks that no one in their right mind would want to do. In our household, several of these tasks involved watering plants.

My father had planted a number of young trees around the yard. Crucially, it meant they could not be reached by hose. The only way to water them was by bucket. These, in turn, were made of plastic with wire handles. The more you filled the bucket, the deeper the wire would cut into your hand. It was during this period that I truly learned to loathe agriculture. As I poured water over thirsty plants, the resentment began to build and build until came a time that every plant I touched died almost instantly. Believe me, I’ve tried to turn things around. For years, I’ve subjected myself to back-to-back episodes of Gardening Australia in an attempted horticultural marathon, all in the hope that some of their glorious enthusiasm might well be contagious. It was of no use. In fact, all it’s done is give me a sneaking admiration for the enduring power and importance of manure. I’ve even tried watching films featuring the man with the greenest of green thumbs, The Hulk, just to learn a thing or two. It’s not been easy – some of those movies leave a lot to be desired. But even this kind of self-inflicted flagellation has been of no discernable benefit. Each time I’ve bought a plant, it has shrivelled up a surely as an insect under a magnifying glass. But I didn’t give up. Throughout, I have continued to buy plants in the hope that one day I, too, will be able to grow

my own vegetables. When we bought the lemon tree about 12 months ago, I was convinced that it was not long for this earth. I even dug a small grave for it in the backyard in anticipation of its imminent demise. Which, given that the backyard is made entirely of concrete, was a lot harder than it sounds. But the little lemon tree that could continued to live on, despite my best efforts. Finally, after many months, it began to bud and, in the weeks that followed, a nascent lemon began to form. Having reached its full potential, the one and only lemon has been removed and the time has come for me to revel in this bounteous harvest as the local villagers rejoice. I appreciate that some will suggest that my decision to declare myself self-sufficient after a single lemon might be a case of too much too soon. Even if a solitary lemon is unlikely to feed me for much of the upcoming year, it hasn’t stopped me from embracing the rural lifestyle in all its glory. These days, I dress only in overalls and wear gumboots, even to work. When I step out my front door, I no longer see trees and lawn; I see fields ready for sowing and crops waiting to be plucked. For that’s how it is when you live off the land. It goes to show: when life gives you a lemon, turn it into a very small glass of lemonade.

Poppy’s Problem-solving

EMI will release the Iron Maiden Double Disc DVD Maiden England ’88 on March 25. Now available for the very first time on DVD, this live show was filmed across two sold-out nights in the UK in 1988 during the band’s World Tour. Disc one contains the concert which has been specially upgraded and extended from the existing 1989 long form VHS release and now includes three previously unreleased encores: Running Free, Run To The Hills and Sanctuary thereby completing the full concert with a total running time of 110 minutes. Maiden’s own film producer and director Andy Matthews went back to the 1988 edit and painstakingly remastered each shot digitally; colour correcting and grading to give the image the best possible look from that time. The Maiden England ‘88 concert soundtrack will also be made available on 2CD album, limited edition double vinyl picture disc and digital download formats. The 2013 World tour dates have been announced. *** AN exciting new era kicked off in epic style for Mushroom in Melbourne last week with 550 of the leading entertainment group’s closest friends celebrating the announcement by Michael and Matt Gudinski of a major rebranding for the Mushroom Group, with new logos and a repositioning for the group’s two dozen subsidiaries. After 40 years in the business, the Mushroom Group is proudly Australia and New Zealand’s leading independent entertainment group. With more than 20 companies under the umbrella, Mushroom arguably defined the ‘360’ model long before it became a music industry catchphrase. Encompassing international and domestic touring, booking agencies, record labels, merchandising, music publishing, creative and marketing services, venues, exhibition and events production, film and television production, there is almost no end to what the Mushroom Group does or can offer. Executive chairman of the Mushroom Group Michael Gudinski said: “After 40 years in the business I cannot express how proud I am of what the Mushroom Group is today and that my son Matt has stepped up into the role of executive director. Times have been tough for the music industry in general but the diversity

of Mushroom and the quality of the artists we work with has ensured our position as Australia and New Zealand’s leading independent entertainment group. I can’t wait to see where the next decade takes us.” Matt Gudinski added: “Mushroom has been synonymous with quality music and entertainment for many Australian and New Zealanders since the ‘70s. The sale of our perhaps most publicly known company, Mushroom Records, back in the late ‘90s led to some confusion around the Mushroom brand, despite the fact that the Mushroom Group and its subsidiaries and is now in a better position than ever before. Today’s announcement is about reconnecting the power of the Mushroom brand and its many associated companies with both the public and the industry.” Mushroom Records was formed by Michael Gudinski and Ray Evans in 1972. Its inaugural release was the triple live of the 1973 Sunbury Pop Festival and over the next few years Gudinski and Evans signed a number of great Australian acts including Chain, Madder Lake, Mackenzie Theory, Buster Brown, Sid Rumpo, Ayers Rock, Skyhooks, Mother Goose, Stars, Ol’55, Split Enz, The Sports, The Dingoes, The Ferrets and many others. *** AUSTRALIA Post is showcasing popular small dog breeds with the release of five domestic base-rate (60c) stamps featuring a miniature schnauzer, miniature dachshund, pug, Australian terrier and a cavalier King Charles spaniel. Australia is a nation of dog lovers, with more than 35 per cent of households owning at least one dog. The stamps were designed by Susan Elliott based on photographs by Craig McGill of the Sydney-based McGill Design Group. A booklet collection is available as part of this stamp issue. This product comprises five booklets of 10 x 60c self-adhesive stamps for each of the featured breeds and housed in an attractive folder.

I HEARD a car pull up in the gravel driveway and saw Oscar get out. As he walked toward me, I saw he was wearing one loosely tied sneaker on the left foot and a Blundstone boot on the right. He had on a brown Volvo cardigan over a VB T-shirt, and blue work shorts. He had obviously been in a good paddock judging by the tightness of the T-shirt, and was smoking as he walked, alternating a draw on the cigarette with a deep cough. He carried a six-pack of beer and was puffing like a steam train. He was not a picture of fitness and sartorial elegance. However, I digress. Oscar sat down with a deep sigh and told me he was in deep trouble and didn’t know what to do. I told Oscar I believed the lovely Charlotte had given him an ultimatum. She had told him he was not nice to be near, was overweight, unfit, drank and smoked too much, ate the wrong food, dressed like a bogan and, to top it off, was not a satisfactory matrimonial companion. She had told him to shape up or ship out. Oscar’s jaw dropped. He was displeased with Charlotte for telling me this. I was able to settle him down and said she had not “given him up”. I told Oscar I knew he was overweight because had put on different shoes that morning, not being able to see what he was doing due to his extended stomach. I said he should also do up his fly. I told him his breathing showed the low level of his fitness and that his dress sense was a complete turnoff to anyone who saw him, especially women. He was devastated. Poppy’s solution I told him to go home to Charlotte and ask for her assistance to get fit. He was then to see a doctor, get a check-up and then start walking every day, building to 45 minutes a session. I gave Charlotte a diet of low carbs, high protein and salads for Oscar and a small plate. To cut down his drinking, he had to drink one full glass of water after each stubby (try it some time, you disbelievers). He had to stop smoking before it killed him. I told him to buy some new clothes under the supervision of Charlotte (anyone who can wear a brown Volvo cardigan has no dress sense), and chuck out the old ones. Until his stomach reduced, he was to get a clothing check from Charlotte before venturing out into society. Oscar took my advice, and while he will never have the ultimate body, he has lost weight, feels and looks better, and suggests you all learn from him. He now wears better clothing and confessed he gets an invite to the other side of the bed now and then.

A Grain of Salt I’VE yet to meet the person without bias. True; many will not divulge their political leanings though one five minute conversation shows the way. What in God’s name is a swinging voter and why advertise it; I don’t believe them anyway. You’re either Labor or Liberal unless you happen to be infused with a temporary (four years?) feeling that you have seen the Green light. I vote Labor not because I was born that way (as I was) but because I cannot bring myself to vote Liberal. You can talk till you’re blue in the face but there are only two parties; one to govern, the other to oppose. Football is no different, almost always a situation of birth but again the two options; for or against the Mighty Magpies, infused again with bias. Imagine being a supporter of the Liberal Party and a Carlton supporter; like being born in the Malle, no disrespect intended to those who live in Malle. Two thousand and thirteen is the Chinese year of the black snake, the humanitarian year of the zodiac. With what’s happening in politics and football I don’t see the humanitarian influence coming our way. Press on, ever in hope. PS: Some of my best friend have the Malle influence, misguided obviously. *** Ever so slowly they are stuffing us up, one small step at a time. An army of do-gooders with ideas via the Yanks,

political correctness, anti-discrimination, healthy living, children, teaching; never ending. On the Mornington Peninsula we have The Friends of Rosebud Beach and Foreshore, Our town Rye, the Greenies, the Red Hill Community Action, Beleura Neighbours, Mount Eliza Action Group, the ecologically aware crowd and the environmental campaigners generally. Further afield like groups are splattered all the way to Mordialloc and possibly beyond; an unknown area in my world. We have councillors but I’ve never seen one and always politicians, each a pseudo model of goodness. Glory be. Amidst all this it becomes more evident that a number of older people have a strong sense of regret about their lives coupled with a singular respect for their actions. We want other people to conduct themselves in a certain way; actions and thinking. Forget it. The train has left the station, express to Lahlahland. Imagine a month, a whole blissful bloody month with no research results and, perhaps more importantly, no new laws. Pigs might fly. *** SENIOR Youth Court Judge Stephen McEwen, commenting on government departments making arms length decisions running contrary to the welfare of troubled youths after instructing the department to house two brothers in the same juvenile detention facility

and finding that said instructions had not been followed said: “I’m sick and tired of that entire department being obstructive control freaks, constantly throwing up psuedo reasons dressed up in social work speak for refusing to just have a look at the blindingly obvious. “They hire people who are social workers who are trained and probably want to do social work, but they don’t let them because no one will do anything without running it past a bunch of psychologists. I think it’s just utterly pathetic... and they come out with facile pathetic nonsense” Nice to know someone agrees with me. *** THE dust has settled and normalcy returns, almost. Living on the Mornington Peninsula where, handsome Greggy Hunt reigns, our vote is irrelevant. Julia’s overseas detention centres idea is disgraceful but then Tony will be no better. So much for God and love thy neighbour. Where’s the basic human rights for asylum seekers? The lady is a tough cookie; knocks off Kevvy a second time and for good measure gets her entourage to add fuel to the fire followed later by a viral serve on family first virgins forever Tony. Assuming Malcolm isn’t in waiting to plunder, Tony has months to trot out a few policies as did Teddy here

in Victoria, quickly forgotten in favour of the blame game. Whatever, assuming these two stack up against each other come September Tony is a shoe in. It’s fun, and we all love it; the headlines that is. We don’t read on down. *** ARE we ever redeemed? Perhaps you don’t need redemption in the sense that you’ve done nothing wrong? Or you’ve forgotten? My horoscope compliments me daily via the Herald Sun. All good fun of course. No matter how hard we try do we ever overcome our base nature? Are our sins really ever forgiven? Hardly a month goes by I don’t think of something I’ve done that wasn’t right; a memory trigger of something stupid. The past is never the past; it remains; answering for our sins. The self-help crowd will say you have to forgive yourself. I forgive, but my inner voice doesn’t listen. *** THERE are people amongst us who become stressed if the driver of the car in front is wearing a hat or driving spot on the speed limit. Those same people shatter the speed limit after exiting roadworks. Are they related to those who become upset if Woolworths put easter eggs up for sale too early? Maybe they take peptides? *** THE three stooges, aka Australian Sports Anti-Doping Authority

By Cliff Ellen

(ASADA), the Crime Commision and the AFL ... Would The Pope wear trackies while watching television? I could write a weekly column on the anti-smoking crew and doctored statistics but this paranoid approach to the point of near frenzy is best ignored; first rule of human nature - the more they get the more they want. Why must we suffer James Brayshaw as a cricket commentator; better than serepax? How come Mark Robinson, who never misses a chance to have a go Collingwood, never knew what was happening at his beloved Essendon? The AFL encouraging dobbers? Give it an hour before it’s on twitter. Does the Health Services Union operate a private slush fund? You betcha. Why would anyone live in Melbourne? They keep shoving those Swisse vitamins in my face; what is the big deal? Those who restrain desire, do so because theirs is weak enough to be restrained. [William Blake]....hooroo...

Tyabb’s new school ready to open. Labour trouble at the naval base Compiled by Cameron McCullough From the pages of the Mornington Standard, 1 March 1913. Mr Chapman, of Mornington, has sold to Mr J. Hurley a 5-acre block of land near Tanti Creek at a satisfactory price. *** Mr T. Pennefather, of the Colonial Bank, Mornington, has been appointed to a position at the head office of the Melbourne State Savings Bank. *** Mr W. Joy, storekeeper, Tungamah, has purchased an allotment at Frankston in Davey Street, and proposes to build a summer residence. Mr Joy is one of Tungamah’s leading public men, and we welcome him to our town. *** We are very pleased to hear that the catering at the Somerville Show this year will he in the capable hands of Mr F. Bieri, from the Morington cafe, and from whom the public can rely upon getting a good luncheon. During the summer, Mr Bieri has catered for several large picnics, and has given great satisfaction. *** An exceptionally large haul of 800 schnapper was made by Mr J. Hutchins senior, at Mornington on Tuesday last. The day previous 350 were caught by Mr F. Parsons and 140 by Mr J. Hutchins junior making a total of 1290 schnapper for three days. The fish were a splendid sample, a few turning the scale at 28lbs each. *** Three well-known country traders in the persons of Messrs A. J. Telford and D. Hamilton, of Rutherglen, and Mr R. Scott, of Chiltern, visited Frankston with Mr J. H. Jolly last week and purchased three building blocks with sea

frontages on which they propose to build and use as summer resorts for their families. Such business men of standing and repute as the above mentioned must prove great acquisitions to Frankston. *** No fewer than four picnics from the Metropolis were held at Mornington during this week. The Mephan Ferguson Employees held their picnic and sports on Saturday last when close upon 800 arrived by the SS “Mourilyan.” On Monday the “Ozone” conveyed the Fish mongers who numbered 1000. On Tuesday over 800 Bellarine farmers arrived by the “Mourilyan”, and on Wednesday the Williamstown Dock Labourers (250) came by the “Lady Loch.” Today the annual picnic of the Public Works will take place. *** The executive officers of the Frankston Choral Society have much pleasure in noting that their services are recogonised by the society, but are unwilling to accept the intended presentation. The punctual attendance of the members at rehearsals and the support of the Frankston audiences encourages the exectutive and make their arduous duties pleasant. Patrons who have subscribed towards the presentation think that the services of the secretaries should be acknowledged and small presents will be handed to these clerical workers, especially Mr W. G. Pettit who is about the leave the district. The presentations will be made at the next choral concert in March. *** An “American tea” was held at “Tally Ho”, the residence of Dr Maxwell on, Wednesday afternoon, the proceeds

of which go to the Church of England vicarage fund. The function proved most successful from every point of view, and everyone spent an enjoyable time. In the evening an open air concert was held, and again there was a large attendance, and everything passed off splendidly. Di Gillin’s band was in attendance, and played a number of selections in their best style. The sum of £26 was taken during the afternoon and evening. *** Reports have reached the United Laborers’ Union that considerable disatisfaction exists among about 300 members of that body employed at the naval base at Westernport, and the secretary (M. D. Cullinoy) proposes to pay a visit to the place during the week to investigate the matter. The grievance among the men is that “some of the bosses” have adopted an overbearing attitude towards them in connection with their work, and trouble is threatened if the alleged course of action is persisted in. *** Representatives of the Dandenong and Moorabbin shire councils on Tuesday sought further aid from the Minister of Public Works for the construction of the Monier bridge over the creek at Mordialloc. The council, it was stated, had already added £220 to similar amounts provided by each of the shire councils but as the work was estimated to cost £1500, these votes were inadequate. The bridge was regarded as largely a national work, and the Defence department had been asked to contribute, on the ground that large quantities of military equipment and stores were carried over it to the manoeuvres on

the Mornington Peninsula. The Commonwealth Government had however declined to assist. The Water Commission, too, was interested in respect to its Carrum Swamp operations. Mr Edgar promised to ask the Cabinet for a special grant, and offered to support a request for a vote from the Water Commission. *** LANGWARRIN: The dry spell still continues, very little rain having fallen this year. However, the light rains that fell recently replenished householders’ tanks and checked the serious bushfires that were burning in all directions. The pastures now show a burnt up appearance and in the orchards some of the fruit trees show signs of distress. The overseas export of fruit from this district was begun by a consignment of apples from Mr P. J. Murray to London by the SS Somerset. Regular consignments will now continue until the end of April. Mr E. Nicholas is also shipping fruit to Brisbane. The half yearly meeting of the Progress Association takes place on March 3rd, when the reports and balance sheets will be presented and the election of office-bearers for the next term be proceeded with. The annual picnic will be held at Frankston on Saturday, March 1st. Increased interest is being centered in municipal affairs. As the retiring member, Cr Lloyd, is likely to be opposed, ratepayers would be wise to be on the fighting list by paying their rates in time to be enrolled on the voters’ list. Mr C. W Murray, who, with his aged mother, took a trip to West Australia some time ago, has lately returned.

They had a pleasant voyage both ways, and have much benefited in health. Mrs J. Cam reports having sold her house and orchard to a Mr Swanson, of Melbourne, at a satisfactory figure. *** TYABB: The new State school on Crescent Road is now complete and ready for the opening celebration. The building is one of the up-to-date type and will now prove to be well worth the waiting and trouble which the surrounding parents have spent in agitating for it during the past five years. Large quantities of fruit are being sent from the local railway station for the European markets again this year. Several trucks are being loaded daily, and great difficulty is found in obtaining sufficient louvre trucks to accommodate the fruit. The growers are also put to much inconvenience since the goods train arrives at such a late hour. In fact, the goods service is about the most inconvenient this year that it has ever been, in spite of the fact that the quantity of produce now being dispatched from the station is growing every year, and should afford a better service. It is to be hoped that the complaints that are being put before the department by the Fruitgrowers’ Association will receive some consideration. At the hall tonight a cribbage tournament is being held under the auspices of the Happy Hour Club. A dance will follow, and a good attendance should eventuate. The return cricket match with Rhyll will take place on the Tyabb cricket ground today, As many locals as can attend are cordially invited to assist in entertaining the visitors.

Sorrento and Baxter do battle for top spot PROVINCIAL By IT Gully MORNINGTON Peninsula cricket fans are in for a sensational final round in the top grade as five sides battle it out for ladder positions. Provincial grade had appeared to be a two-horse race for the majority of the season between Sorrento and Baxter. But Mornington’s rise to supremacy has thrown a cat among the pigeons, given that the Dogs are playing inspired and confident cricket at the right time of the season. It would be hard to argue that the Doggies were not going into the next month as favorites to win the pennant. They have a team full of stars, most of whom are genuine all-rounders. Then there’s the fourth and fifth ranked teams with one match to go in Peninsula Old Boys and Crib Point. They continue to lurk and on their day, are capable of causing some headaches. It will all come down to the final match of the season this Saturday,

a one-dayer in all grades. As it stands, Sorrento remains at the top of the table on 104 points. Baxter is equal on 104 in second place, Mornington is third on 102 and Peninsula Old Boys sit in fourth on 74 points. Crib Point is just two points behind POB on 72. Mornington should finish in second place on the ladder. This is highly likely. The Doggies play Heatherhill which, a couple of weeks ago, you would have said was a certain win. But the club somehow managed to upset Sorrento this round. Sorrento and Baxter will battle for top spot. This is just what you want before finals – a ding-dong battle against a side that you will be playing in the semi-final the next week. Obviously, only one of these sides can claim top spot, which will relegate the other to third place and an away final. Peninsula Old Boys tackle the dangerous but inexperienced Mt Martha, while Crib Point is assured of a win when it plays Ballam Park and the

Magpies still need to win. The biggest upset of the season took place on Saturday when Heatherhill defeated Sorrento. After putting together 260 on the first day of the match, the Hills bowlers needed to be at their best to knock over the strong Sorrento batting line-up. They didn’t disappoint, Ben Frith dominating with the ball, taking 7/53, while skipper Matty Meagher chimed in with 2/22. Nick Jewell top-scored for Sorrento with 33. The Sharks will need to put the loss down to a bad day at the office and look to bounce back this weekend against Baxter. Baxter cruised to victory against Ballam Park, bowling out the home side twice and then getting the required runs at the end to claim outright victory. It was this victory that put it in a position to grab top spot at season’s end. A professional unit, the reigning champs bowled out the Knights for 164, then smacked 2/235 with Shane

McComb belting 144, and bowling the home side out a second time for 135 and then picked up the required 60odd to win outright. Dale Irving claimed 6/65 in the second innings for Baxter, and Daniel Lanati top-scored with 36 not out. Crib Point finished Mt Eliza’s season and set up its own tilt at the finals after picking up the vital 12 points in a thriller. In a victory that one could only read about, the Pies appeared finished when they resumed one wicket down and then proceeded to lose their next seven wickets for fewer than 60 runs. When Ricky Thompson and Wade Symes came together at the crease, the Pies were on their knees at 8/61, still 110 short of victory. In a performance of great mental strength, Thompson and Symes batted for the remainder of the day, getting the required runs with one over and one ball to spare. Earlier, Sam Creffield (3/34) and Lyle House (3/63) had dominated the Magpies’ top order.

However, in his best First XI innings, Thompson scored an unbeaten 70, while Symes, batting at 10, helped himself to a match-winning 43. Long Island easily accounted for Rye, winning by more than 120 runs. After making 8/252 on the first day of the match, the Islanders rolled Rye for 129. Justin King top-scored for the Demons with 43. The Peninsula Old Boys side successfully defended its total of 208, bowling out Moorooduc for 165. Bobby Wilson top-scored for the Ducs with 85 but received little support. Adam Jones claimed 3/33 and Zac Fillipone 3/43 to be the pick of the Old Boys’ bowlers. Mornington got the job done against Mt Martha, but it came with a fright. After bowling out Mt Martha on day one for 154, the Dogs eventually got the runs with just two wickets in hand. Matt Foon, who snared 2/7 with the ball, top-scored with 53, while Anthony Gapes hit 40.

Hastings gives itself a finals chance DISTRICT By IT Gully HASTINGS has given itself every opportunity of playing finals in MPCA District cricket after knocking over top of the table Langwarrin on Saturday. The Blues are half a game outside the top four with one match remaining. If you were a betting man, you’d say the top four of Langwarrin (96 points), Carrum (92), Delacombe Park (72) and Somerville (72) will not change. Baden Powell is in fifth place, also on 72 points, while Hastings is in sixth on 66. Pines is seventh on 60 and is mathematically a chance. Langwarrin plays Frankston YCW in the final one-day match this Saturday and will retain top spot. Carrum plays Flinders, who can be dangerous but they should win this one and finish in second place. Delacombe Park and Baden Powell will be playing for a spot in the top four and a finals berth when they go head-to-head. The Parkers are known as the best one-day side in the business

while Baden Powell was the 2012/13 T20 champions. Somerville faces off against Seaford, who has had a season to forget and should win that one. So Hastings has to hope that the cards fall its way in other matches, while it needs to ensure that it beats Pines. After a best-on-field performance in Friday’s Country Week grand final win, Scott Phillips again steered his side to victory with an unbeaten 45. Before the skipper came to the crease, Hastings was in a spot of bother against Langwarrin. Langwarrin was defending just 166 after Phillips ripped through its top order on day one of the clash last week, claiming 4/46 from 22.1 overs. The Hastings top order copped a similar fate, losing its first four wickets for 61. But Luke Hewitt, who also played a role in Country Week’s Second XI championship win, steadied the ship and made 65 before he was run out. Coming in at seven because of a

weary body from Country Week, Phillips maintained his rock solid concentration and stayed in the middle for the remainder of the match. He lost a couple of partners along the way and at one stage the Blues were eight wickets down with 26 runs still to get. But Isuru Dias managed to hold up an end while Phillips took the Blues over the line. Dwayne Doig took 5/60 from 28.4 overs for the Kangas to be the pick of the bowlers. Baden Powell had a little look at an outright win against Seaford but fell short and had to settle on the 12 points. After an amazing day one of the match when 16 wickets fell for slightly more than 100 runs, the Braves settled on day two, lost only one more wicket and declared at 6/79, one run ahead of Seaford. Adam Landry was the Braves batsman who came to the rescue with an unbeaten 24 when wickets were tumbling on day one. Seaford had another bat, hung around for more than 60 overs but

made just 112. It was enough to prevent the Braves from batting again. Josh Waldron was the best of the Baden Powell bowlers in the second innings with 3/19. Somerville completed the expected and beat Frankston YCW. But the Eagles were not able to get the outright victory they had hoped for. After making a staggering 8/380 on the first day of the match, the Eagles were hoping to take 20 wickets on the second day. But YCW stood firm, as it has done on most occasions this season and made 180. It was 200 short but it was enough to prevent the Eagles from bowling them out for the second time. Flinders might not have had the season it would have liked. However, it once again proved that at its best, it can match it with the best sides in the competition. On Saturday, the Sharks knocked over Delacombe Park in a big shock. After making 221 on the first day of the match, the Parkers were unable to defend it, the home side hanging

on for dear life to make 228. Flinders was nine wickets down with seven runs to get for victory. Andrew Power top-scored with 50 batting at three for Flinders, Louis Gillies made 45, Tim Clarke opened with 30 and Shane Beggs and Nathan Hunt each scored 20s to help their side to victory. Chris Brittain was the best of the Parkers bowlers with 5/67, while Varun Singh claimed three wickets. Pines gave Boneo a cricket lesson, smashing them by 150-plus runs. After scoring 283 on week one, the Piners then rolled Boneo for just 117. Cam Williams top-scored with 36, while Brett Remy was the destroyer with the ball for the Piners with 4/29. Ricky Ramsdale snared 3/37. In the final match, Carrum got the job done against Main Ridge after an unbeaten 117 from Dean Polson. Josh Dent was also unbeaten on 63. It rounded-off a great match for Polson, who also picked up 3/7 in helping the Lions roll the Ridge for 196 last week.

Six teams jockey for a spot in the finals DISTRICT By IT Gully WHAT a tantalising round we have in MPCA Sub-district cricket this Saturday in the final matches of the home and away season. Of the six teams vying for a place in the finals, four of them play against one another in the one-day game this Saturday. Second place Tyabb will be challenged against fourth placed Red Hill, while third placed Balnarring is up against sixth placed Pearcedale. Top of the table Rosebud has a relatively easy game against Carrum Downs, while Seaford Tigers, who are in fifth place, will pick up a guaranteed 12 points courtesy of the bye.

The points as they currently sit add to the intrigue of what might happen at 6pm this Saturday night. Rosebud is on 90 points and will win. Tyabb is on 90 points also, Balnarring on 84, Red Hill on 78, Tigers on 78 and Pearcedale on 78. While wins will obviously play a key role, it is percentage that will determine who makes it and who doesn’t. For instance, Tyabb, in second place, has a percentage of 1.01 (the lowest of the top six). Seaford Tigers, who are in fifth place, have a percentage of 1.36. Pearcedale has 1.19. If Tyabb were to lose to Red Hill in the final home and away game of the season, the Tigers would just go into the four and the Yabbies would fall out. If Red Hill loses, they won’t have

to worry about percentages, they’ll drop out. If the Panthers can beat Balnarring, they will go into the top four. It’s going to be a cracking final round. On Saturday, Rosebud limped over the line against Pearcedale. After rolling the Panthers for 121 on day one, the Buds were in some serious trouble overnight after dropping wickets. But they just got there in the end, bowled out for 135. Jason Nagel, better known for his bowling, top-scored with an unbeaten 25. It was a match winning innings. Tyabb put itself in the cut throat position after losing to Tootgarook. Defending 150 was always going to be tough, although at stages throughout Tootgarook’s innings, the Yabbies

still looked a slim chance. Luke Thompson was the difference between Tyabb winning and losing after he hit 74. Matty Whelan scored 33 and Scott Didcock 18. Balnarring got the desired result against Seaford Tigers. After bowling out the Tigers for just 88 on day one, the visitors willed themselves to 147. Brenton Taylor opened the innings for Balnarring and finished with 32, while Chris Murphy scored 29. The Tigers had another bat and finished 7/110. Jacob Cook snared 3/27. French Island was always going to be stiff to lose its match against Dromana after belting 8/386 on the first day.

The Hoppers had a fair crack at the total, scoring more than 300 but still fell 80 runs short. Andrew Thompson was the star for the Hoppers with the bat making 131, taking his season’s tally past 400 with an average of more than 42. Skipper Mark Whitehead also had a good day with 59. Red Hill was unconvincing with the bat in week one of their match but still managed to get the job done against Carrum Downs. The Hillmen rolled the Cougars for 82, Nick Wood claiming 3/20, Glenn Collett 2/20 and Ross Corfield 2/15. Josh Harness was the only Cougars batsman to make double figures, top scoring with 34, his second highest score for the season.

Hastings Firsts knock over top-place Langwarrin HASTINGS CRICKET By Greg Bradshaw FIRSTS v Langwarrin (Langwarrin 166, Scott Phillips 4/46, Luke Hewitt 3/22 and Issy Dias 2/40): The Hastings’ innings began well, cruising to 0/35 after 10 overs but as in previous matches, one wicket leads to a collapse and five overs later it was 3/40 with Brad Watson scoring 29. After a successful week in the MPCA Seconds Country Week side, Luke Hewitt strode to the wicket in good form and he entertained the crowd with an excellent 65 but when he was run out at 6/133 another two wickets fell quickly and it was 8/140 and game on. Phillips and Dias did the job last round under different circumstances and not much pressure but it was like a finals finish this time, as they ground out a hard-fought victory as Hastings made 8/170 with Phillips making 45no also after a successful week for the MPCA First Country week team. This win leaves the side 6pts out of the four with a game against Pines to come. Second v Langwarrin (Langy 7/247, Jake Ryan 3/49 and Peter Dale 2/53): Hastings had hoped to challenge Langy’s total but the loss

of early wickets and some stifling bowling saw the team rolled for a paltry 109. Matt Sawosz was solid with 26, Phil Stone made 20 and Scott Williams 19. Thirds v Dromana: Hastings was on a high after last week’s win against top-placed Tyabb and thought Dromana would be a pushover. Two hours later Hastings was in disarray at 7/80 and only for Stephen Lewis 43no and Darrel Lothian 8no got the score to 9/144. When Hastings fielded, dropped catches became an epidemic as Dromana cruised to victory at 5/147. Matt Foy was the best with the ball taking 3/48. Under-13s v Baden Powell (semifinal): Baden Powell batted first, starting with a rush 1/30 after 8 overs then 2/72 at drinks. From this point onwards the Hastings bowlers got on top, restricting the Braves to 57 runs for the rest of the innings to finish with 6/129 off 40 overs. Wickets were shared around with Ryan McNamara taking 1/11, Thomas Finn 1/12, Bayde Wilson 1/13, Blake Mealey 1/4 and Jackson Coles 1/19. Hastings rejigged its batting lineup but was quickly 2/7. Harrison Jansz opened and was steady, scor-

ing 12 off the first 15 overs, 3/36. McNamara and Shelby LothianBurdett then added 20 when McNamara was out for a handy 20 runs 4/56 at the 20-over mark. Corbin Overton joined Shelby and they took control, putting together a 50-plus run partnership with Shelby retiring on 30. Coles joined Overton and they took the side within sight of victory when Coles was out for 10, 5/122, and then the win came two overs later as the team made 5/131 and Overton was 22no. Next week Hastings travels to Flinders to play in the grand final so come along and support them, 10am start on Sunday. Under-11s v Mt Martha: Mt Martha batted and scored 6/92 off its 20 overs. Devlin Webb took 1/3, Traye Gent 1/5, Kayde Simpson took 1/7, Bailey Esler 1/9 and Matt Dodd 1/16. Hastings replied with 8/124 with Pat Wilson making 22ret, Thomas Finn 17ret, Thomas Buckley 11ret Dodd 10 and Lachie Robertson 18no. Coming events: Friday 8 March, lunch with Damien Fleming at the club at 12.30pm. Call Carrie on 5979 1740 to book a seat. Friday 15 March, junior presentation night at 5.30pm.

Peninsula cricketers shine at Country Week COUNTRY WEEK By IT Gully THE Mornington Peninsula Cricket Association cleaned-up at last week’s Country Week championships, bringing home the Provincial and Division three pennants. The Provincial side lost one game throughout the five-day tournament, before smashing Sale-Maffra in the grand final on Friday by seven wickets. The Division 3 side, led by Peninsula Old Boys’ Jon Forrest, went through the tournament undefeated. Hastings skipper Scott Phillips was the star of the final, snaring 4/35 with the ball before scoring an unbeaten 40 with the bat to help guide his team to victory. Long Island top-order batsman Justin Bridgeman scored the highest knock for the tounament, getting 90 in game four against Ballarat, before opening the innings in the final and scoring 58. There were no stand-outs over the week for the Provincial side, all players

making an impact when required. Baxter star and MPCA skipper Daniel Warwick made scores of 30, 23no, 49 and top-scored in the final with 59. Mt Eliza all-rounder Justin Grant was also a significant contributor with bat and ball, while Moorooduc run-machine Bobby Wilson had a couple of big scores with an unbeaten 40 and a 78. Peninsula Old Boys’ all-rounder Dylan O’Malley was the standout performer in the Division 3 team. O’Malley batted at the top of the order and made scores of 51, 46, 103 and 55 in the round robin games. Sorrento’s Leigh Poholke was also sharp with the bat, getting scores of 34, 73, 35 and 76. Hastings’ Luke Hewitt was the leading wicket-taker in the tournament, taking two bags of four. In the grand final, the Division 3 team looked gone when it was bowled out for 121. However, its bowlers rose to the challenge and bowled out Goulburn Valley for 97 to claim the title.

Footballers triumph: Hastings cricketers and footballers met for a Twenty20 match on Friday 22 February. It was a footballer who top-scored – Tony Mirabella who hit 86 before being run out. The footballers won after bowling the cricketers for 155. Picture: Andrew Hurst

Igugu set to take Dubai by storm WHILE Black Caviar continues to hold the attention of the racing world another Australian flag bearer is about to make an impact on the international stage. Igugu, rated by leading South African trainer Mike de Kock as good as any mare he has put a saddle on. Igugu resumed with a satisfactory third in the Group 2 Balanchine over 1800m at Dubai’s Meydan racecourse on Thursday. It was her first outing for over 13 months and following the performance De Kock is confident Igugu will be a force at the Dubai World Cup meeting on 31 March. Her mission will be either the $10m Dubai World Cup [2000m] of the $6m Dubai Duty Free [1800m]. Tragically the five-year-olds career has been severely disrupted by the quarantine restriction imposed because of the African horse sickness prevailing in South Africa. Once De Kock had decided to tackle the world’s richest racing in Dubai with Igugu she had to endure a convoluted journey to the Middle East. That involved spending two weeks in Cape Town, three months in Mauritius, 45 days in England before more time in quarantine in Dubai. On that basis her effort on Thursday night was quite remarkable. However, she has put together an outstanding record in South Africa after being purchased for $65,000 at the Inglis Premier Yearling Sale in March of 2009. A daughter of Irish stallion Galileo Igugu won 10 races and was placed

Australia’s most valuable racehorse: All Too Hard in the Futurity Stakes at Caulfield on Saturday. Picture: Slickpix

second twice from her 12 outings before going into quarantine. Those victories included two of South Africa’s most prestigious races the J + B Met at Cape Town and the Durban July. Those and her other displays earned her the title as South Africa’s Horse of the Year in 2011. Now that she has cleared quarantine restrictions De Kock could tackle feature races coming up in Hong Kong and Singapore, There is also a possibility Igugu will be aimed at the Cox Plate at Monnee

Valley in October. Interestingly, De Kock had a Cox Plate runner in Greys Inn in the 2005 renewal. Although Greys Inn disappointed De Kock said at the time he was keen to win the Cox Plate but he realised he needed the right horse. *** ALTHOUGH still overshadowed by Black Caviar, her half-brother All Too Hard has become Australia’s most valuable racehorse. Since being purchased by Vinery Stud in a $25m deal earlier this year All Too Hard’s value has soared since

victories in the Orr Stakes and Futurity Stakes at the elite level. His reputation will climb even higher is he is to win the Group 1 Australian Guineas [1600m] at Flemington on Saturday. If that happens – and he is the shortest-priced favourite on the history of the race – he will head to Sydney in all-conquering style. *** PAKENHAM trainer John Gunning seems set to win a feature race or two in coming weeks with his classy sixyear-old mare Hi Belle.

She resumed with a barnstorming third in the Group 3 Mannerism Stakes [1400m] at Caulfield on Saturday. A winner of nine races already Hi Belle s likely to go to t$150,000 Schweppervescence Stakes [1600m] at Flemington 9 March and judging on her first-up effort she will certainly be hard to beat. Underrated Queenslander Spirit of Boom will be right among the top chances in the Group 1 Newmarket Handicap [1200m] at Flemington on Saturday week. Spirit Of Boom, who has shown a liking for the straight course rattled home to be third behind Mrs Onassis and Facile Tigre in the Group 1 Oakleigh Plate [1100m] at Caulfield last Saturday. It was his first outing for three months so he will obviously benefit from the outing and will be right in the picture at headquarters. Trouble-prone import Glass Harmonium appears set for another successful campaign. He was most impressive when second to All Too Hard in the Futurity when returning to racing. Significantly he was more settled than he has been previously at that was reflected in the enthusiastic way he raced.
