THE Disabled Surfers Association’s Mornington Peninsula branch has started the new year in much the same fashion as it left the last – full steam ahead. On Australia Day it was rewarded by Mornington Peninsula Shire for running “the community event of the year” and this week took delivery of a new equipment trailer. The trailer will be used to carry the special equipment needed for disabled surfers and to help realise the DSA’s motto of “putting smiles on dials”. The trailer was built with the help of Auswide Trailers, Nepean Waste Management, Nepean Roofing, Mornington’s Grand Hotel and peninsula branches of the Bendigo Bank. On Saturday it held a training day for volunteers and this coming Saturday will be providing a surfing “experience” for people with disabilities. It was last year’s “Let’s Go Surfing” event that won the shire’s award. In March 2012 the inaugural event had 26 participants being helped in and out of the water by 220 volunteers. This year the DSA expects 50 participants and 400 volunteers. Volunteers do not need to have attended the first training day. The first of two “Let’s Go Surfing” events being held this year by the peninsula DSA runs 9am-1pm on Saturday (9 February) at Point Leo Surf Life Saving Club. Volunteers are asked to bring a wetsuit as there are limited numbers available. Coloured rash vests will be provided. Registrations will be taken from 8am. Anyone who wants to be involved (participants and volunteer helpers) can call Ashley Gardener on 0417 362 983, visit www.disabledsurfers.org or check the group’s Facebook page.

Elderly lead road toll By Neil Walker THE Mornington Peninsula’s road toll dropped from nine fatalities in 2011 to six in 2012, but elderly deaths were over-represented with four of the six last year aged 70 and over. Transport Accident Commission statistics reveal four of those killed on the peninsula’s roads last year were aged over 70, with one aged between 60 and 69. There was also a fatality in the 18to 20-year-old category.

The six 2012 fatalities saw three drivers, two passengers and a pedestrian lose their lives. No cyclists or motorbike riders were involved in fatal accidents last year. Nancy Gardiner, coordinator of a free Wiser Drivers program aimed at helping seniors assess their driving skills, said the road toll figures should serve as a warning to elderly drivers to ensure they are fit to drive. “Most seniors are pretty responsible

drivers, but if they don’t know the road rules they shouldn’t be on the road,” she said. Hastings Highway Patrol Sergeant David Collins said police were not specifically focusing on elderly drivers while patrolling peninsula roads. “Everyone should be aware of their driving ability regardless of their age.” Sergeant Collins said speed, carelessness and alcohol were still major issues in the region. “Too many peo-

ple are using a perceived lack of public transport options as an excuse to drinkdrive,” he said. Sergeant Collins urged people to speak to friends and family to plan transport home if they intended to drink alcohol. He praised the Wiser Drivers for seniors program and encouraged elderly drivers to participate to assess their driving ability and be aware of risk factors.

Nancy Gardiner suspects many elderly drivers fear losing their driving licence if they attend Wiser Drivers courses, but this is not the case. “There are no tests or assessments – it’s just a group of peers getting together to talk about road rules and the challenges older drivers face as they age,” she said. Fatal road accidents are not alone in causing long-lasting trauma.

On notice: Mary Budd of Crib Point Community House and Cerberus Ward councillor David Garnock unveil the noticeboard.

Community now on board By Steve Dowling A NEW community noticeboard was officially opened in Hastings on Thursday 24 January by Cerberus Ward councillor David Garnock. The noticeboard is a result of a forum held some time ago with various community groups. At the meeting many groups talked about the difficulty of getting messages to the public to attract new members, promote an event or tell people what services they provide. A prominent noticeboard reserved exclusively for community messages was seen as part of a solution to the problem. C Garnock said the noticeboard acknowledged “the important roles that

community organisations – largely non-profit organisations run on shoestring budgets by volunteers – have in maintaining a sense of community that, during tough economic times such as now, are important in maintaining morale, optimism, and offering support to those less fortunate. “The noticeboard has come about as a result of community consultation and the council, community groups and Hastings Community Bank branch of the Bendigo Bank responding to the needs of the community. “The noticeboard creates a community ‘heart’ for the main street of Hastings’ retail precinct; a place where people can meet, learn what’s going on in the community, and be reminded

of the great community spirit alive and well in Hastings.� Community groups were supportive of the new noticeboard with Mary Budd, coordinator of Crib Point Community House, praising the project. Funded jointly by the shire and Hastings Community Bank, the bank used a $500 Hastings Business Award received recently to meet most of its share. The noticeboard will be looked after by community bank staff. No commercial advertising will be displayed and the board will be updated regularly. Notices for display can be left with staff at the bank. The noticeboard is beside the pedestrian crossing in High St.

Swamp protected as Link ‘offset’ By Mike Hast ABOUT 180 hectares of environmentally significant land at Boneo, south of Rosebud, has been protected to “offset” vegetation cleared to build Peninsula Link. The deal will see Linking Melbourne Authority, the state government’s freeway management authority, hand over millions of dollars to Trust For Nature, which has put a covenant on part of Tootgarook Swamp and a section of Moonah woodland, both owned by Rob McNaught. Mr McNaught, owner of Boneo Park Equestrian Centre on Boneo Rd, hosted the announcement of the covenant last Friday night. He said it was a great day that his section of the swamp and the Moonah woodland, purchased in 2001, was finally officially protected. It would protect the land from development in perpetuity. “We put together the first vegetation management plan 10 years ago with [peninsula-based ecologist] Gidja Walker and I’m pleased she is back to do the next plan,” he said. “We are developing a world-class equestrian centre on one part of the property and creating top-quality habitat for our indigenous flora and fauna on the other.” Mr McNaught acknowledged the work of Tootgarook Swamp “protector” Norm McKinlay, who had been looking after the area for more than 30 years. Mr McNaught’s Boneo Park is about 320 hectares (800 acres) and he said 180 hectares (440 acres) of the prop-

erty “is probably the most environmentally significant land on the Mornington Peninsula. It includes a Moonah woodland of about 50 hectares (120 acres)”. He said the woodland was probably more important than the swamp, the last significant wetlands on the peninsula, as both had endangered species of flora and fauna. Trust For Nature CEO Camilla Graves thanked Mr McNaught and his

family for allowing the covenant on a “large part of an ecological treasure, the Tootgarook Swamp”. She said the land had been recognised for its biological significance by the Department of Sustainability and Environment, and Mornington Peninsula Shire. Ms Graves said it was a complex covenant that included “significant management works to be done over 10 years, paid for by the developer of

Peninsula Link with advice from Trust For Nature”. “Mr McNaught and his family are great role models,” she said. Trust for Nature, started in 1972 by the Hamer Liberal government, is a not-for-profit organisation that works to protect native plants and wildlife in cooperation with private landowners. Flinders federal MP Greg Hunt praised Mr McKinlay and Ms Walker: “They have been custodians of the

swamp,” he said. He also praised Mr McNaught, saying he had shown “passion and vision, which we don’t see enough of”. “One hundred years from now, the swamp will be here for all to enjoy because of the sacrifice of the McNaught family,” he said. Land to offset bush bulldozed for Peninsula Link is also being set aside at Nar Nar Goon. In a press release, Roads Minister Terry Mulder said the arrangement was “one of the biggest native vegetation offset deals in Victoria’s history”. LMA would spend about “$12 million to protect and improve two parcels of native vegetation located in Boneo and Nar Nar Goon”, he said. Mr Mulder said LMA was “working closely with Frankston City Council to secure additional offsets at a site near Belvedere Reserve in Frankston”. “These offsets would be above and beyond the requirement for the project, but we feel it’s important to preserve this small patch of high-quality vegetation situated so close to the Peninsula Link freeway,” he said. Environment Minister Ryan Smith said Peninsula Link had “fully achieved its net gain requirements under Victoria’s Native Vegetation Management Framework, and the project would result in an overall improvement to bushland”.

Elderly top road toll list Continued from Page 1

Peninsula road accidents that saw people injured increased slightly for the year to June 2012. TAC records show claims for non-fatal road accidents involving an acute hospital admission rose two per cent from 180 in 2011 to 184 in 2012, against a fiveyear average of 164. Frankston’s 2012 road toll was three, down from four in 2011. Frankston non-fatal road accidents, involving a TAC claim, increased for the year to June 2012, up one per cent from 144 in 2011 to 146 in 2012, against a fiveyear average of 133. Victoria’s road toll in 2012 was 279, eight less than the 287 in 2011. TAC acting CEO Tracey Slatter praised the Victorian community for its road safety efforts. “We thank the majority of Victorians who do the right thing and are committed to keeping safe on the roads,” Ms Slatter said. “But still today, there are 279 families grieving for a loved one lost in 2012 and more than 5000 people who are coping with serious injuries after a car crash,” she said. “Together, we must work to get the road safety message across to those who choose to disobey the road rules by speeding or driving under the influence of drugs or alcohol or while fatigued.”  For further information about the Wiser Drivers program for seniors, call Nancy Gardiner on 0419 398 695 or 5986 4621.

Planning panel for hospital By Mike Hast THE proposal to expand Peninsula Private Hospital in Cranbourne Rd will go to a state government planning panel. Frankston councillors led by Crs Colin Hampton and Darrel Taylor voted unanimously at their meeting on 21 January to send the proposal to a panel. It is the next step in changing land at 525, 555 and 559 McClelland Dve from Rural Conservation Zone and Road Zone Category to Special Use Zone. This will allow hospital owner Australian Unity Healthcare Property Trust to build stage one of a $25 million redevelopment that will more than double the private hospital’s size. The first stage includes an intensive care unit, overnight and day surgery beds, operating theatres, an allied health centre, consulting rooms and car parking. The hospital is operated by Ramsay Health Care, which started in Sydney in 1964 and describes itself as “a global hospital group operating 115 hospitals and day surgery” centres in Australia, the United Kingdom, France and Indonesia. A Frankston Council officer’s report said the expansion was vital for the health of the community. “By ignoring the matter, council risks the health of the community. Extending the existing hospital … will provide expanded acute medical services in the private healthcare industry,” the report said. “It is recommended that council continue to support the amendment … by

formally requesting an independent panel to consider submissions. “The majority of the objecting submissions express concern with development encroaching into green wedge land.” The report said the proposal would not “set precedence for development … in the green wedge”. But Barry Ross of environment group Defenders of the South East Green Wedge said the group was “strongly opposed” to the proposed planning amendment. He agreed there was a community benefit in allowing the expansion, but the proposed rezoning was “in direct conflict with the planning scheme of what is not permissible in the green wedge”. He said the hospital should show it was a good corporate citizen by allowing a section of its land on McClelland Dve not being used for the expansion to become a park to replace, or offset, the new buildings in the green wedge. The hospital also should “chip in and help buy the block next door” owned by Hasstta Holdings to create a nature reserve adjoining Frankston Council’s Pobblebonk Wetland Reserve. “If this land can be purchased, it could help create a splendid reserve comprising three blocks,” he said. “While we oppose the rezoning, we recognise that it has strong support from Frankston Council and the Department of Community Development and Planning, which appears willing to change the rules to facilitate the development.

“If the full purchase price of the Hasstta Holdings land cannot be justified, then Linking Melbourne Authority should be required to make up the difference to help offset the vegetation removed from the surrounding properties for the construction of Peninsula Link.” Mr Ross said LMA had not “provided any vegetation offsets in Frankston City for the large amount of vegetation removed from the municipality for Peninsula Link”. Cr Colin Hampton said the hospital being in green wedge land was a “planning anomaly and should have been fixed years ago”. He said there would be strict conditions to protect the environment if the redevelopment went ahead. An earlier attempt to get state Planning Minister Matthew Guy to declare the hospital expansion land as a so-called green wedge anomaly was unsuccessful and the hospital is now seeking a planning amendment to change the zoning. Chris Smith of Australian Unity Investments said the hospital needed to expand to meet “long-term growing demand in the Mornington Peninsula and surrounding areas for additional and specialist healthcare services”. There had been a number of studies showing growing demand for healthcare services in the region. “Our plans are aimed at helping meet the growing healthcare needs of the local community and alleviate pressure on the region’s public hospitals.” The new intensive care unit was par-

ticularly important. Consultants working for the hospital said an extra 570 private hospital beds were needed in the region, “but only 449 are currently available”. Mr Smith said the hospital, which Australian Unity Investments bought in 2006, “performs an important role as the largest private hospital within the Frankston and Mornington Peninsula region”.

New limit to speed in Graydens Rd POLICE have warned drivers that the speed limit at Graydens Rd in Hastings has been lowered from 100 km/h to 80 km/h. Hastings Highway Patrol Sergeant David Collins said the speed limit had been reduced following a number of collisions at the intersection of Graydens and Boes roads. “There have been several recent accidents involving vehicles turning into oncoming traffic,” Sergeant Collins said. Mornington Peninsula Shire has a long-term plan to install a roundabout at the intersection. Speed limit changes on Mornington Peninsula roads can be tracked on the VicRoads website at www.vicroads. vic.gov.au

Primary look at engines

Gliders pass the weight test ORPHANED twins are rapidly growing at Moonlit Sanctuary in Pearcedale. Sukari and her sister Patch are sugar gliders orphaned when their mother died while they were still in her pouch. Keepers had to raise the pair by hand, feeding them with a syringe rather than a conventional bottle. Both are now past the critical 80 gram weight and have moved on to solid food. Sukari and Patch will be part of the sanctuary’s school program.

OVER the past two years, Rotary Club of Hastings members Len Butcher (left) and Alan Young have conducted a small engines program at St Mary’s Primary School in Hastings. Senior pupils have learnt about the various engine systems, finding faults, dismantling and reassembling engines. An equal number of girls and boys have participated in the program over the two years. “The small engines program has proved very popular with students who love the handson element of the activity,” St Mary’s principal Richard Mucha said.

Firms’ cash for child equipment AN upgrade to resuscitation equipment is set to benefit children when admitted to the Frankston Hospital’s emergency department. A $13,000 donation from Esso and BHP Billiton was used to buy a Broselow trolley, which is designed to allow doctors and nurses easy and quick access to resuscitation

equipment for children and babies. The trolley is colour coded to match the age of the child, ensuring the appropriate-sized equipment is used, saving assessment time. The trolley is the latest piece of equipment bought with annual donations from the two companies over the past 20 years.

MPs steer away from another road opening POLITICIANS were falling over each to be at the opening of Peninsula Link, but not one has offered any information on the completion of two other major road projects. In Frankston, the wall to hold back erosion near the base of Olivers Hill has been rebuilt, leading to the reopening of a southbound traffic lane on Nepean Highway. Traffic is flowing well, but neither VicRoads or any government MP stepped forward to claim credit for the costly repair. Across the peninsula at Mt Martha, VicRoads quietly lifted the barricades that for months had been steering traffic away from repairs to a section of the Esplanade that had slipped into the sea. Several near-accidents occurred on Australia Day when motorists used to the barriers were surprised by vehicles coming at them from previously restricted areas of the road. Keith Platt

Don’s mayday for history help A FORMER naval man, now assistant curator of the Victorian Maritime Centre, Donald Carpenter (pictured) is taking on the mammoth task of collating and recording Victoria’s maritime history. Mr Carpenter is setting up a research department at Western Port Oberon Association’s Crib Point centre. “We are researching 135 years of assisted passages from the United Kingdom and Europe. We aim to record the crews, passengers and ships that brought migrants to Victoria during the period 1837-1972,” he said. He is assembling a collection of memorabilia that will accompany a sound and light show at the association’s proposed Victorian Maritime Centre. Mr Carpenter is seeking volunteers to help collate the information as well as people who have photos, paintings, illustrations, newsreel clips and 16mm film of the period.

Tip planned for Arthurs Seat quarry By Mike Hast AN old quarry on the eastern side of Arthurs Seat could become the Mornington Peninsulaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s newest rubbish tip. Hillview Quarries, owned by R E Ross Trust, is expected to submit an application to the shire council in about four weeks. The landfill plan would see the former Pioneer Quarry, which is east of Arthurs Seat State Park and north of Arthurs Seat Rd, used to dump household waste â&#x20AC;&#x201C; 75 per cent from the shire and 25 per cent from outside. Up to 100 trucks a day would enter the bush precinct off Boundary Rd in Dromana. The proposal has raised the ire of near neighbours on Boundary Rd as well as residents of Arthurs Seat Rd and is likely to generate widespread criticism by environmentalists. Objectors include Jacinta and Kelvin Banks, whose property adjoins the Pioneer Quarry land, their next door neighbour Peter Guy, Andrew Reynolds of Boundary Rd, long-time Dromana resident John McLeanWilson and several residents of Arthurs Seat Rd. They are concerned about potential noise, smell, fire, leaking methane gas as the tip fills, extra traffic and loss of property values. Mr McLean-Wilson said authorities should â&#x20AC;&#x153;find a different way to dispose of waste apart from burying rubbish in the groundâ&#x20AC;?. A recycling centre would remove the need to dump as much rubbish, he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve never objected to anything before, but would be prepared to chain

myself to the gate to stop this tip.â&#x20AC;? Jacinta Banks, who has lived on Arthurs Seat for more than 25 years with husband Kelvin, where the couple has raised three boys, said the proposal would turn Dromana into â&#x20AC;&#x153;an industrial town instead of a tourist townâ&#x20AC;?. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The old 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,â&#x20AC;? she said. Kelvin Banks said objectors were fearful that if the Pioneer Quarry proposal was approved, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Hillview will ask to turn its existing quarry into a tip when it reaches the end of its lifeâ&#x20AC;?. Peter Guy said there would be a hue and cry from Arthurs Seat Rd residents when they found out about the plan. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Hillview Quarries owner R E Ross Trust claims it is a friend of the environment, but this is an act of environmental vandalism,â&#x20AC;? he said. Andrew Reynolds said he was concerned about noise and smell, but the biggest worry was fire. A fire starting in the proposed tip could race up Arthurs Seat and threaten Red Hill Consolidated School and its 460 pupils as well as residents, he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;A fire could spread to Main Ridge, which has limited road access.â&#x20AC;? He said the proposed tip was a â&#x20AC;&#x153;scandalous propositionâ&#x20AC;? from Ross Trust, which had financially supported good work for the environment. Objectorsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; concerns about fire are based on recent history: a big fire burnt part of the mountain near the chairlift

and western side in January 1997. In January 2008, a fire alleged to have started when a tree fell on power lines near the bottom of the mountain burnt several hectares near the Pioneer Quarry area. Luckily the wind was from the south and the blaze travelled northeast. Authorities closed Nepean Highway, Boundary Rd, Collins St, Shergolds Lane and White Hill Rd.

Dromana councillor Graham Pittock said the shireâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s landfill off Truemans Rd in Rye would be filled in about five years. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We have to do something, but I want to see the proposal before making further comment,â&#x20AC;? he said. R E Ross Trust CEO Sylvia Admans could not be contacted for comment before deadline.

THE R E Ross Trust owns Hillview Quarries Pty Ltd and Peninsula Waste Management Pty Ltd. The trust was established in Victoria in 1970 by the will of Roy Ross, who founded Hillview Quarries in 1968 and died in November 1970 aged 71. Mr Ross was a keen bushman, had an extensive knowledge of native plants and trees, and made a study of the habits of birds and their calls. His will directed the trust donate money to three fields â&#x20AC;&#x201C; social welfare, education of foreign students, and nature conservation â&#x20AC;&#x153;with particular regard to the purchase of land for the protection and preservation of flora and faunaâ&#x20AC;?, states the trustâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s website. Ross Trust has given more than $80 million since 1970. Many peninsula organisations have benefited including in recent times Dromana CFA, Habitat Restoration Fundâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s rehabilitation and weed control in Arthurs Seat State Park near the OT Dam, and the recently opened Rye playground.

Festival film helps boost funds for Mexico mission By Tony Murrell IN November 2000, Alan and Pam Skuse left their home on Queensland’s Sunshine Coast to volunteer for a year at an orphanage in Tapachula, a coastal city in Mexico. They had no idea the organisation they signed on with would close after six months, leaving them with a choice: return to Australia or take on the overwhelming challenge of caring for the abandoned children. The couple lacked resources and critical support, but they dreamed of creating a true refuge, a unique surf community where children who had suffered unimaginable trauma found peace in a caring home and the freedom of surfing. The Skuses decided to sell their house and dedicate their lives to helping the children of Mission Mexico. “To stay in Tapachula and continue this work was very difficult for us. We had only planned on doing 12 months of volunteer work, so to think about an indefinite period of time was daunting,” Pam Skuse said. “We had no support and would have to rely on our own savings to continue. Our grasp of Spanish was minimal and we also had no local support.” Ten years later, they care for 54 children and more than 200 children have passed through their care. “Surfing has become a huge part of the life of Mission Mexico,” Mrs Skuse said. “It is giving the kids a challenge, a challenge to better themselves. They are learning qualities like patience and perseverance. Each

Business backing

week they improve and little by little they are feeling satisfied with their efforts. It also provides a place of escape from the pasts that haunt them.” The award-winning documentry Somewhere Near Tapachula will be screened as part of Ventana Film Festival on Saturday 2 March at 9pm at Cube 37, Frankston Arts Centre. It was made by Australians Stefan Hunt and Jonno Durrant who also filmed and produced Surfing 50 States. They decided to make Somewhere Near Tapachula when visiting the mission in 2010. Each year as part of the Ventana

Carers: The work of Alan and Pam Skuse, who sold their Queensland house and have dedicated their lives to helping Mexican orphans (like Porthtowan, below) are profiled in the documentary Somewhere Near Tapachula.

PENINSULA Surf, a pioneer of surf-related retailing in Frankston, will support the screening of Somewhere Near Tapachula and the subsequent auction to help Mission Mexico. Founder Ted Bainbridge, who opened the first of the company’s six stores on Nepean Highway in 1974, will be the auctioneer. Peninsula Surf and Global Surf Industries will donate a surfboard for the auction. Global is already a significant supporter of the mission. Bainbridge has appealed to the surfing community to support the event. “Pam and Alan Skuse are inspiring examples of how like-minded people can make a positive difference to the lives of vulnerable children. Surfers young and notso-young will rally to a cause like this,” he said. Prue Latchford’s Point Leo-based East Coast Surf School has donated surfing lessons for the auction.

Fiesta organisers nominate a special cause to support: this year they have chosen Mission Mexico. To support the mission, organisers will auction donated surf-related goods following the screening. Organisers are seeking surf items for the auction with all proceeds going directly to the mission. Phone Gill Thompson on 0409 860 407. Information on volunteering at the mission will be available at the screening.

The Western Port Whisperer THE Whisperer loves progress and was champing at the bit to get out and enjoy our new superhighway, also known as the Peninsula Link. The sums had been done, and it had been estimated the $2 billion road would save Mr and Mrs Whisperer at least five minutes on their intended journey, freeing up valuable time that could be spent queuing somewhere. Once word got out that the new road was open to the public, The Whisperer wasted no time in testing it out. The Whisperer-Mobile was loaded up (with Mrs Whisperer) and the journey started. The Whisperer journeyed down Hastings’ version of the Khyber Pass, the road between Kings Creek and the 7/11. Once through there, The Whisperer turned west along Graydens Rd. To his surprise, an “80” speed limit sign greeted him. Being a law-abiding citizen, he slowed to 80 and continued on the route to get to Peninsula Link. Arriving five minutes later than he expected due to the new 80 speed zone, he merged onto Peninsula Link and sailed off into the distance. He is happy to report that due to the wonderful state of the new road, and the efficiencies it entails, Mr and Mrs Whisperer made up the entire five minutes they had lost, and arrived at their destination at the same time they used to. “Thank God that Peninsula Link came along when it did,” Mrs Whisperer was heard saying. “What a triumph!” *** SPEAKING of Mrs Whisperer, she has been on the warpath since the last column when The Whisperer rued the purchase of some “Hookz” removeable picture hooks from Bunnings that subsequently resulted in everything that was hung on the walls crashing down. Not to be beaten, she contacted the manufacturer and explained her dilemma, and the resultant destruction. The good news is the

compnay was very understanding and offered to send complimentary packs of the picture hooks (that don’t keep pictures up). The Whisperer, whose nerves were still frayed from all the falling pictures and shattering glass, had some suggestions to offer Mrs Whisperer as to what the company could do with the free picture hooks on offer. None of which included sticking more of them up on walls. Mrs Whisperer was too polite to pass these suggestions on. *** THE Whisperer has received correspondence from a resident understandably upset that the council allowed the footpath in Hastings to remain bloodstained for up to six days after a vile “glassing” incident. A novel solution has been offered – issue the shire with a fine as punishment. It was unsanitary, unsightly and just plain unacceptable. The correspondent also offered suggestions that the perpetrator of the crime should be locked up for a minimum of 15 to 20 years, and their name should be published every year, and their crime discussed in schools to reinforce to young people that such crimes are not without serious consequence that continue for many years. Let’s hope the victim is recovering. *** HOW are the roads near you? The Whisperer is running a competition to find the biggest pothole in the district. Email entries to the address below and you could be the recipient of a wonderful prize. First prize is a pack of Hookz removeable picture hooks. Second prize is two packs of Hookz removeable picture hooks. Third prize is three packs of Hookz removeable picture hooks. Good luck! thewhisperer@y7mail.com

Footy brawl on tram – just the ticket! MRS Emu has just arrived home from the city, hopping mad. She actually hops when she is this mad, causing panic and confusion in her ever-mild mate. Vases and chairs start flying. He scuttles out of reach in case he is the cause of this incandescent rage. “I am soooo cross!” she hisses – unnecessarily, thinks Emu as he peers cautiously around a door at her soooo-cross eyes glowing red. “There was money on my myki but the computer said there wasn’t. “The man at the station said, ‘Sorry, you can’t travel, you have only 55 cents on your card.’ I said, ‘I put ten dollars on it yesterday morning, so you’ve got my money and I have an appointment. I demand to travel.’ “He said, ‘It can take time for the computer to credit the cash to your card.’ I said, ‘This didn’t happen with Metcard. You put in your money and out came the ticket. Straight away.’ “Then I said, ‘Now we have a fancy new multibillion dollar system that appears to have been designed by idiots and can’t do the job properly’.” She smirked at the memory of her biting retort. “And then I started inserting my head through the ticket office grille to get a closer look at him. He leapt a metre, straight up in the air!” Emu once saw her do this inserting manoeuvre, totally unnerving a cinema ticket seller. It is frighteningly effective, this serpent-like insinuation of the emu head and neck into a usually inviolable place. We got two in the front row. She continued: “Then he said, ‘OK, get on the train.’ He was trembling a bit, I can tell you, and standing well back. ‘If the inspectors query you, just do that trick where your eyes turn red. And

again at Flinders Street. That’ll do it.’ “So at Flinders Street three of them did a huddle, looking at my ticket then at me, then at the ticket again. They made phone calls. Then they let me through the gate, saying it would be working by the time I got back for the trip home. “And it was, amazingly,” she said. Emu didn’t think it was necessarily all that amazing, in the circumstances. “I thought about it on the way home,” she said. “I decided they’re not running the transport system for the public’s convenience – it’s all set up for theirs. You can’t even buy a ticket on a tram any more. Apparently the computer said ‘no’ to that. “And all that myki money sitting in a vault somewhere, earning interest on the short-term money market. Our money – it must be millions. What a cheek! “Wait till the footy season starts,” she went on, “when mobs arrive in their thousands from interstate and find they have to buy a bit of plastic for $6 before they can buy a $7 ticket.” She smiled a grim smile. “Watching that little stoush will be more fun than watching the game!”

Natural-looking dentures YES, you can have naturallooking dentures. Artificial teeth no longer have to look like artificial teeth. Dental prosthetist Joanne Grant says there is now a wide range of superior, natural-looking teeth. “There are many different shapes and shades that are carefully selected to suit the complexion and shape of a person’s face,” she said. Artistic flair enables Joanne to create new smiles. “Our aim is to provide a denture that will look as natural as possible, support facial muscles to prevent the appearance of premature ageing, and be functional and improve chewing ability. “It is often thought that once a person gets dentures, they will last a lifetime. Although the dentures may feel comfortable (like a pair of old slippers!), the supporting tissues continue to change and if not checked regularly permanent damage may occur. It is important dentures and oral tissues are checked every two years, and new dentures fitted every 6-8 years.” Many people are anxious and embarrassed about getting new dentures. Joanne and her team (pictured) are very sensitive to

people’s needs and focus on making clients feel at ease. Clients often comment on the friendliness and caring attitude of the staff and are always impressed with the customer service. Joanne sees her business not just that of supplying dentures, but as a ministry of caring for and helping people. Westernport Denture Clinic was established by Joanne in 2006 and has become a family affair with son Jamie as dental technician, sister Jacinta as practice manager, sister Keryn as receptionist, sister Maree as bookkeeper, husband Max as data processor and brother Jamie as cleaner. Joanne has worked in the

dental industry for more than 35 years, graduating from dental nurse to dental technician to dental prosthetist. She is highly regarded and has vast experience in the field of dental prosthetics, having had a successful practice in Templestowe for 15 years before moving to Hastings, and also having lectured and worked as a clinical demonstrator in dental prosthetics at RMIT University. Joanne, husband Max and daughter Tanya are residents of Hastings and are actively involved in the community.

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. Answer your questions or concerns. Present your child with a “showbag” of goodies

Do homework before buying a caravan By Ron Gunn of Utow Caravans WHAT type of caravan is best for you? We don’t know and neither does anyone else, but our advice is make a list. Yes I know everyone says make a list, but it is imperative that this list contains all the features that you require as musthaves and then the nice-to-haves, before you go shopping. Firstly you must decide: is this the car I am going to keep. If yes, does the following apply to the vehicle? Front-wheel drive or rear-wheel drive, 4 x 4 or all-wheel drive – it does make a difference especially when it comes to weight-levelling bars? What type of suspension is fitted to the vehicle and is it possible to upgrade it if necessary? Can a towbar be fitted to the vehicle or does it have one? If so, what is the maximum capacity for the towbar or the vehicle (with the actual weight it can tow and also how much down pressure is allowable on the towball). The lower figure is the one that you have to live with – or buy a heavier duty towbar if available. What is the maximum payload of the vehicle? The caravan: what is it I need, then want. What weight do I want to tow or, in fact, am I allowed to tow with the chosen vehicle, how high will fit under my carport, how long do I need it to be, single-axle or dual-axle? A single-axle is easier to manoeuvre but a dual-axle can be longer but not necessarily heavier and most people say travels better. Once this is decided then we look at exterior fittings: awning or annex (will I ever use the walls or will a privacy screen be enough?). Front boot or side boots?

Most are, some are not. Remember you get what you pay for and if you are going to purchase a custom-made caravan make sure your weights are within the vehicle’s capacity. You can keep adding bits and pieces but every item adds weight. Hopefully this has given you a bit of a headstart, so now go and look at the yards. It’s too expensive to make a mistake.

FEATURE PROPERTY

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

The good life WITH a charming touch of vintage and Australiana design, this lovely homestead takes centre stage in the always sought-after Kinfauns Estate. The 8094-square metre block is well landscaped with a neat concrete drive leading to the home past a colourful assortment of trees, orchard and gardens. The property is self-sustaining, with an orchard, boasting about 20 types of fruit trees, and a greenhouse with established vegetable garden. The grounds are maintained by a state-of-the-art, computer-controlled irrigation system sourced from bore water, with sprinklers throughout the garden and orchard. A three-kilowatt solar power system â&#x20AC;&#x201C; with feedback into the grid â&#x20AC;&#x201C; has also been installed. The impressive list of external features continues with the large garage and its storage space. For boats and caravans, the double garage has a high-span roller door and behind it is an 88-square metre shed with a 3.3-metre (11-foot) door and a mezzanine level for additional storage. Extra sheds are suitable for garden equipment. At the front of the home is a pretty garden path, flanked by neat hedges, leading to the front verandah, which is draped in wisteria. Polished floorboards feature throughout and there are other character features such as ornate cornices and ceiling roses. Modern touches include a monitored alarm system and ducted vacuum. Space will not be a problem here either with five bedrooms and three bathrooms plus a spacious family room and separate rumpus room. The colourful kitchen has an underbench oven, dishwasher and a large corner pantry. The private oasis at the rear of the home features a solar heated in-ground pool with cabana, and you can spend endless summer evenings on the merbau timber deck.

MARKET PLACE

Home, James

Room for all the extras

A NEAT and tidy home is the best first step for any first home buyer and this excellent brick-veneer property, in a quiet part of town, would be ideal. There are three bedrooms that share the one bathroom, and living space consists of an open-plan lounge and dining room. The adjoining kitchen has been updated and features stainless-steel appliances including a dishwasher. From the dining area is a cosy entertainment area, partially enclosed with cafe blinds. The 725-square metre block has plenty of off-street parking and there is a single carport. In the backyard is a garden shed and, for the tradesman, a large steel workshop and garage. The frontyard is enclosed by hedges and is very private and secure as a play area for children.

THERE will never be a need to get the keys to the Torana so you can move the Holden as this property has all the room a multiple-vehicle family could ever want. Set on a corner block, the property has an extensive paved area at the rear with a huge, high-span triple carport attached to the house. There is a free-standing double garage with workshop and kitchen facilities, and a single carport. The ranch-style home presents very well from the street and has three bedrooms, including the master bedroom with an ensuite. Timber dados and exposed beams in the separate living and dining areas continue the rustic theme. There is a very neat kitchen that has been remodelled to include an underbench oven.

100 YEARS AGO THIS WEEK...

Miss Parry recovering from fall, road to Aspendale and Frankston criticised Compiled by Cameron McCullough VERY extensive fires occurred in the Somerville district on Tuesday last. Several small outbuildings were burnt, while large quantities of fencing and grass were lost. During the evening the lurid glare of this devastating element could be seen in a great semi circle round Somerville. *** AT the last meeting of the Somerville Mechanics’ Hall committee the body of management all resigned as a protest of the lethargy and indifference shown in the management of the hall by the general public. The annual meeting was advertised for Friday week last and only one of the general public turned up to hear the annual report. There is also another reason why the committee resigned ‘en bloc’ and that is that they felt there was some feeling that they had not pushed the matter of additions to our antiquated hall. The trustees have for years past blocked any attempt at additions by their refusal to sign a deed of trust. The people came forward a few years ago and relieved them of their responsibility and since then they have refused to move in the matter of enlargement. If either of the new sheds were floored it would be possible to do without the hall as the sheds will give infinitely greater floor space and would be more comfortable in every way. *** MR Slaney, of ‘Nyora,’ on the Mornington Road, had the unpleasant experience of being visited by some destructive and thieving characters on Thursday night (30th January 1913). On Friday morning he perceived that there was something wrong with a

new cover which he had put over a stack of hay on the previous evening, and on going to investigate he found that a large portion of it (l0ft x 10ft) had been cut out of it and taken away. He has put the matter into the hands of the police, to try and discover the perpetrator. *** WE regret to have to record the death of Mr W. H. Shepherd, of Somerville, which took place on Friday evening of last week. Mr Shepherd had been under an operation for appendicitis a week or so previous and never recovered, although all that was possible was done. The funeral took place on Sunday last, the body being interred in the Frankston cemetery. The funeral was the largest that ever left this district, some 50 or 60 vehicles having joined in the procession. *** A VERY unfortunate accident happened to Miss Katie Parry, daughter of Mr and Mrs R. Parry, of Mornington, on Sunday afternoon last. The young lady was leisurely riding on horseback along the Dromana road, and on hearing the sound of the horn of an approaching motor car (which was going in the same direction) she pulled on to the side of the road, leaving fully 20 feet clear for the motor to pass, but by some unfortunate circumstances the motor dashed into the horse and Miss Parry was thrown violently to the ground. The young lady was conveyed in the motor to her home and on the arrival of Dr Somers it was found that her arm was broken and she was suffering from shock and abrasions. The horse was so badly cut that sixteen stitches

had to be inserted. We are pleased to state that Miss Parry is doing remarkably well under the treatment of Dr Somers. *** A VERY interesting demonstration of fire extinguishing was given on Friday evening in the Park ground at Mornington. Mr E. Oliver Farley, the manager of the the Ajak Fire Appliance in Australia, was the demonstrator. The subject of the test was a structure of pine, 9 feet high by 8 feet 6 inches square, thickly coated with tar and kerosene. A stiff breeze was blowing, and in a few seconds the structure was burning fiercely, so much so that the demonstrator was unable to approach near enough at the first attack. The contents of the tube missed the fire altogether. The second attempt was successful, although the demonstrator was well scorched for his enthusiasm. The success was well merited, and the gathering were more than surprised at the victory. The heat from the structure forced the crowd well back and when the Ajak was applied the tar and kerosene had a good hold, whilst the flames were bursting right through the cabinet. All present expressed themselves as being more than pleased with the result. *** A PECULIAR accident happened to a young man named Jackson on Tuesday last. It appears that Jackson, who is employed at “Mooondah”, rode into Frankston, and after transacting his business, set out on the return journey. What happened after he left Frankston has not yet been ascer-

tained, but he reached his destination riding the horse, but in a semi-conscious condition and with his clothes torn to ribbons. He was assisted to his bed, where he lapsed into unconsciousness. Dr Maxwell was sent for, but his patient was in such a critical condition that an examination could not be made. On Thursday however consciousness was regained, and Dr Maxwell found that he was suffering from slight concussion of the brain, his shoulder blade was cracked, and one of his ribs was bent. He can in no way explain his condition, and though still in a very low state, his recovery, and the consequent explanation, is being eagerly looked forward to. *** The Road to Aspendale and Frankston. The following letter appeared in the ‘Age’ re the above, on the 3rd of February (1913):– I read with regret of the terrible accident that occurred on the road on Sunday night, and, without going into the cause of the accident, I would like to write a few words concerning the terrible state of the road. During the last three weeks I have made four journeys down and four back to Melbourne over this section. I think, and everybody will agree, that this is the most dangerous thoroughfare in and around Melbourne. The reserve for the road, I think, is about 3 chains. The made road itself, I think, about 12 to 15 feet. On both sides there are tracks of sand and ti-tree. There is no pathway for foot passengers, consequently all traffic – foot, horse, bicycle and motor – are compelled to use the 15 feet strip. On Saturday nights and Sunday

nights, from Mordialloc to Frankston, there are hundreds, if not over 1000, pedestrians strolling backwards and forwards all over the road, and dodging in and out of the ti-tree. As a motor man I would like to say that, these pedestrians, or most of them, especially the campers, are the most indifferent people I have ever met. They take absolutely no notice of any vehicle coming along, and, as a matter of fact, on several occasions they have absolutely held my car up. I have practically had to stop the car before they would get off the road and allow me to pass. Last Saturday night, just after the last train had passed through Aspendale, I was travelling along the road, and at each station I met dozens of young fellows who were slightly the worse for liquor which adds greatly to the danger of this road. I certainly think that the shire councils in these districts should be compelled to make proper provision for the enormous traffic, both foot and wheel, on this most dangerous thoroughfare. In conclusion, I might also add that the surface of this road between Aspendale and Frankston is in a most shocking state of disrepair. Some of the holes extend right across the surface, and woe to the motorist who does not know the road, he is certain to break the springs of his car and more than likely have a serious accident through the steering gear being smashed. – Yours etc, E. J. Tait. From the pages of the Mornington Standard, 8 February 1913.

Western Port News 5 February 2013


The rose JOHN Blanchard stood up from the bench, straightened his army uniform, and studied the crowd of people making their way through Grand Central Station. He looked for the girl whose heart he knew, but whose face he didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t â&#x20AC;&#x201C; the girl with the rose. His interest in her had begun 13 months before in a Florida library. Taking a book off the shelf he found himself intrigued, not with the words of the book, but with the notes pencilled in the margin. The soft handwriting reflected a thoughtful soul and insightful mind. In the front of the book, he discovered the previous ownerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s name, Miss Hollis Maynell. With time and effort he located her address. She lived in New York City. He wrote her a letter introducing himself and inviting her to correspond. The next day he was shipped overseas for service in the Second World War. During the next year and one month the two grew to know each other through the mail. Each letter was a seed falling on a fertile heart. A romance was budding. Blanchard requested a photograph, but she refused. She felt that if he really cared, it wouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t matter what she looked like. When the day finally came for him to return from Europe, they scheduled their first meeting â&#x20AC;&#x201C; 7pm at Grand Central Station in New York. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll recognise me,â&#x20AC;? she wrote, â&#x20AC;&#x153;by the red rose Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll be wearing on my lapel.â&#x20AC;? So at 7pm he was in the station looking for a girl whose heart he loved, but whose face heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d never seen. A young woman was coming toward him, her figure long and slim. Her blonde hair lay back in curls from her delicate ears; her eyes were blue as flowers. Her lips and chin had a gentle firmness, and in her pale green suit she was like springtime come alive. He started toward her, entirely forgetting to notice that she was not wearing a rose. As he moved, a small, provocative smile curved her lips. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Going my way, sailor?â&#x20AC;? she murmured. Almost uncontrollably he made one step closer to her, and then he saw Hollis Maynell. She was standing almost directly behind the girl. A woman well past 40, she had greying hair tucked under a worn hat. She was more than plump, her thick-ankled feet thrust into low-heeled shoes. The girl in the green suit was walking quickly away. He felt as though he was being split in two, so keen was his desire to follow the girl, yet so deep was his longing for the woman whose spirit had truly upheld his own. And there she stood. Her pale, plump face was gentle and sensible, her grey eyes had a warm and kindly twinkle. He did not hesitate. His fingers gripped the small worn blue leather copy of the book that was to identify him to her. This would not be love, but it would be something precious, something perhaps even better than love â&#x20AC;&#x201C; a friendship for which he had been and must ever be grateful. He squared his shoulders, saluted and held out the book to the woman, even though while he spoke he felt choked by the bitterness of his disappointment. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m Lieutenant John Blanchard, and you must by Miss Maynell. I am so glad you could meet me; may I take you to dinner?â&#x20AC;? The womanâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s face broadened into a tolerant smile. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t know what this is about, son,â&#x20AC;? she answered, â&#x20AC;&#x153;but the young lady in the green suit who just went by, she begged me to wear this rose on my coat. And she said if you were to ask me out to dinner, I should go and tell you that she is waiting for you in the big restaurant across the street. She said it was some kind of test.â&#x20AC;? Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not difficult to understand and admire Miss Maynellâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s wisdom. The true nature of a heart is seen in its response to the unattractive. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Tell me whom you love,â&#x20AC;? Houssaye wrote, â&#x20AC;&#x153;and I will tell you who you are.â&#x20AC;?

Weekend when the Frasers have 10,000 visitors By Fran Henke WHEN the president of Open Gardens Australia says this will be the last time of opening her garden, you have to wonder why. Age? Aggravation? Twenty-five years ago Tamie and Malcolm Fraser opened their garden in Victoria’s western district to support the new scheme and to help keep staff going on their property “Nareen”. “There was drought, stock prices were low, it was a difficult time,” said Mrs Fraser, now president of Open Gardens Australia. A different story today: the Frasers have gardened at Merricks for 14 years and you’d think that with former Prime Minister Malcolm Fraser in his early 80s, his wife in her 70s, they would wish to retire. Far from it. “It’s very expensive to open the garden,” said Mrs Fraser candidly. “The first time we had to rebuild the bridge. This time, following the wet winter, the paddocks used for parking were very pocked and we had to have them smoothed out.” When their garden, “Thurulgoona”, attracts about 10,000 visitors over two days, parking is extremely important. “But I said last time that would be the last time,” Mrs Fraser smiled. “They are very long days,” she explained. “Opening the garden starts on the Thursday with set up. And the scheme wants owners to be there to answer questions.” You wonder how the notoriously gruff Mr Fraser handles this. But he was charming this day, accepting instructions from Yanni (the photographer) on where to stand in his own garden and being extremely interested in the cameras and lenses chosen to deal with deep shade. Inside, when Mr Fraser had disappeared on men’s business, a camera magazine on the table reminds he is a keen photographer, too. We talk through eIements of gardening, colour, water, sound, and I remind Mrs Fraser of complaints about the “Nareen” garden being “too green” all those years ago. “We opened the garden to buses and a group came from Footscray, but they were so disappointed. It was the end of autumn and little was out,” she recalled. The Frasers are hardly retiring types. They chose to live on the Mornington Peninsula after considerable exploration, she said, because “people here are doing things, elsewhere they seemed too retired”. I noted how agile Mr Fraser is for his age, bending to weed or deal with Choc and Grizzle the dogs; moving easily. “He’s good isn’t he,” she agreed with clear pleasure. They play golf (at Flinders), Mr Fraser has a shed, home to his woodturning equipment, and he has a boat. On top of presidency of Open Gardens, Mrs Fraser has long supported Red Cross, which will benefit significantly from the popularity of the Fraser garden. She describes the garden design as “flagrantly amateur”, populated by “impetuous purchases and gifts from friends”, so is there a colour scheme? “No, and not a lot today, I cut everything back after Christmas to time with the opening days [16 and 17 February]. There will be yellows and mauves beyond the rose garden, blue geraniums in front of the roses.” Mrs Fraser said she doesn’t design her garden for what other people think about colour or anything. “I don’t like structure in the garden; we have done our own thing.” She doesn’t like garden rooms but prefers the garden to lead where it will. The “Thurulgoona” garden flows from

sitting areas overlooking the property and valley to a smoke-hazed Western Port, around to the “cigar garden for family and friends with anti-social habits”. Here, too, are Mr Fraser’s camellias. He is famous for breeding the registered C. japonica Tamie Fraser. Four years ago I asked Dame Elisabeth Murdoch if she still wanted to make changes to her garden, so asked Mrs Fraser that question. “There are always changes to make in a garden,” she said. “We planted too closely. Fourteen years on there’s too much shade under the oak and some plants need to be shifted or thinned out.” And not everything worked at first. Significant earthworks were undertaken to make the garden intimate and accessible. “The house was on a very steep slope and we wanted it to sit into the garden,” Mrs Fraser said. An experienced bulldozer operator moved earth from under the tennis court and around the shed. “I had collected seed of favourite plants from ‘Nareen’ and spread them when the top soil was replaced, but nothing came up; not one plant. The soil structure had been too disturbed,” she said showing early pictures of a red clay desert. The garden is watered from two picturesque lakes near the long drive, providing a grand entrance, slowed by ducky inhabitants basking in dust. When looking for the new home, Mrs Fraser said big trees were important as she loved the sound of wind through cypresses at “Nareen”. But there were none at what was to become “Thurulgoona”, so hundreds have been planted, providing windbreak and windsong. They have help in the garden once a week and more often when it is closer to open day. As president of the scheme, Mrs Fraser points out Australia’s is the second-largest open garden scheme in

the world, ahead of the United States. Britain, where it all began, is the busiest. She loves the idea of people being able to wander round other people’s gardens. “And you learn so much from visitors,” she said. I asked about the property name, having found a reference to Thurulgoona Station in Henry Lawson. “It was Malcolm’s great-grandfather’s property (southwest Queensland) where he discovered the first artesian water in Australia,” Mrs Fraser said.  “Thurulgoona” will be open – possibly for the last time – on Saturday and Sunday 16 and 17 February. There will be stalls, light lunches, teas and wine tastings. Parking is free and entry is $10. Entry is near the intersection of Stanleys and Merricks roads, enter from Merricks Rd.

Demon cutlery from Hell’s Gate By Stuart McCullough I WAS reaching for a teaspoon when I saw it. There in the cutlery draw was a fork unlike any other I had ever seen before. Like a cutlery colossus, it towered over the knives, spoons and splades. We tend to buy our utensils in sets. This item stuck out, if not like a sore thumb then at least like something that could cause a sore thumb when handled incorrectly. It was longer and broader than the other forks, with razor tines as sharp as a gargoyle’s teeth and an elaborate, gothic swirl running down the length of the handle. It looked like something that belonged not so much in another drawer as another age. Or perhaps even another dimension. Utensils can do a lot of things. They can cut, carve and harpoon whatever’s on your plate. The one thing they cannot do, however, is walk. How did the piece of cutlery I now refer to as “the Spooky Fork” come to be in our house? I immediately demanded answers, but the fork refused to say a word. Clearly, it had been trained to withstand interrogation. Exhausted, I left it, tied to a chair, and attempted to regroup. Even if it had responded, I’d be hard pressed to believe it. Human beings occasionally speak with a forked tongue. A fork has no other option. If freaking out at the mysterious appearance of a fork of unknown origins seems something of an overreaction, allow me to disagree. It’s not about one, isolated fork. What concerns me is that this lone

utensil may be an advance party. After reporting back, hoards of strangelooking spoons and steak knives might easily follow. Perhaps oddly elaborate plates and saucers also. It could easily be the thin end of the Wedgewood. The price of utensil freedom is eternal vigilance. There was little time to lose. I immediately secured the premises by nailing wooden boards across the doors, windows and cupboards. If an army of

voice that sounds like a gate opening. Confronted by the sight of Count Forkula, I will instantly return his utensil and let him melt back into the darkness… I may have no clue where it came from, but I know it’s not mine to keep. The Spooky Fork is too beautiful to be kept a prisoner in my cutlery drawer. I had to set it free. Having decided to return it to the wild, I put the fork in a cage and drove out into the wilderness. After finding a clearing, I set down the cage and quietly, carefully opened it. The poor thing didn’t want to leave and I had to help it out, pushing it toward the scrub. Returning to my car, I could see it in the rearview mirror as I left. Overwhelmed by its sudden freedom, it hadn’t moved an inch. It would, I assured myself, feel at home soon enough. I don’t know why I find the appearance of a mysterious fork so unsettling. Perhaps it’s a reminder that, no matter how hard we try, we can control things only so much, after which fate, destiny and cutlery take over. Maybe I like to believe that some places are beyond the reach of the random. That some things are predictable and are more magnificent for being so. But it takes so little to disturb this sense of tranquility. All it takes is one unexpected event and you are suddenly faced with a choice. A fork in the road, if you will. Or maybe just in the drawer. www.stuartmccullough.com

19th century cutlery was intending to invade the apartment, my job was to make its attempted annexation as difficult as possible. But as I kept watch all night, I heard nothing – not the rattle of armed teaspoons or the sound of tiny boots. If invasion was their plan, they were happy to bide their time. But what if a full-scale takeover was the furthest thing from the Spooky Fork’s mind? Maybe it was not the advance party but the only utensil of its

kind anywhere in the world. Rather than a reject, perhaps it was a singular artifact of great and immense value. Objects of beauty can be adored and even sometimes destroyed, but they are rarely misplaced. This meant the true owner might come looking both for the fork and for revenge. Based solely on its appearance, the fork’s true owner would likely be a giant; a beast of a man. I will open the door, expecting a neighbour only to find myself face to chest with a mountain of flesh, fists clenched and looking like Christmas hams, demanding that I return what is rightfully his. I will, of course, try to explain I did not steal the fork and that, instead, the fork had found its way to me. Perhaps it ran away, I will stammer, as a shadow falls across me and the creature moves forward. It will matter little as to why the fork absconded to seek solace in my cutlery drawer. Both the creature and I will know that aiding and abetting a runaway fork is the kind of crime that cannot go unpunished. A giant foot in an elaborate boot will inch forward and I’ll raise my hands but it will be no use… Then again, perhaps the owner isn’t oversized like the fork but is from another era. In the dead of night, I’ll hear the doorbell shriek and will be surprised to find a man on the doorstep dressed in 19th century finery, complete with a large velvet hat. And maybe a cape. With teeth that resemble the tines of the fork, the man will say a simple “good evening” in a slow, creaking

Baxter rolls Mounties as Dogs bite Sharks PROVINCIAL By IT Gully BAXTER flexed its muscles versus Mt Eliza in the duel of the heavyweights on Saturday and is in a commanding position in MPCA Provincial cricket. With just three rounds to go before finals, there is plenty of jostling for a spot in the top four. The Mounties are one of a handful of teams vying for fourth. On Saturday, last year’s District premiers batted first and was made to look second-rate by Baxter, the powerhouse of MPCA cricket. Travis Sawers hasn’t exactly set the world on fire since crossing from Rye two seasons ago, but on Saturday produced something special with the ball for the home side. He claimed 6/37, while Dale Irving continued his sensational form, snagging 3/21. The Mounties were skittled

for 95. Lyle House was the only batsmen to offer resistance, top-scoring for the visitors with 36. In reply, Baxter is cruising at 2/82. Shane McComb opened with 42, and Darren Uccello, back in the ones, is unbeaten on 37. Sorrento versus Mornington is another game that has attracted the attention of fans. The Doggies are enigmatic and can produce the best cricket in the competition on a good day. The Sharks are methodical, brilliant and favourites for the pennant. On Saturday, the Sharks batted first on their home strip and make 220 in 74.3 overs. Opener and pre-Christmas star Jedd Falck failed to make a contribution and Nick Jewell was out for 23 with the score on 40. Liam O’Connor was the rock of the innings for the home side with 74, and

Leigh Poholke (25) and Ross Dunball (32), batting at nine, made valuable contributions. Matt Foon was sensational for the Dogs, snaring 5/48 from 18 overs, and Glenn Wood got the prized scalp of Jewell as well as removing O’Connor. Peninsula Old Boys and Long Island are two of the other sides looking for a place in the top bracket and the visitors appear to have the upper hand after the first day’s play. The Old Boys batted first and managed a competitive total of 9/248. Dylan O’Malley has had a good run with the bat and scored a quickfire and dominant 85 on Saturday. When his opening partner Brandon Lawler was dismissed for 18, the score was on 93. Eivion Bowen with 60 runs started a middle order revival that saw Wade Pelzer (31) and Jon Forrest (42) among the runs. Chris Hocking was the surprise

packet for the Islanders with the ball, picking up 3/51 from 20 overs, while Paul Hartle snared 3/74 from 16. Mt Martha managed its highest score for the year, compiling 283 against Moorooduc. The visitors batted first and many batmen got great starts and made a contribution. This has been lacking for the Reds this season. Skipper Jason Jacoby top-scored for Mt Martha with 62, and Tim Moran entered the arena with the score on 37 and made 61. Jake Smart (42) and Luke Moran (38) also were shining lights for the Reds in the middle order. Bobby Wilson was the chief wickettaker for the Ducs, bowling 26.2 overs and finishing with 4/107. There were four run-outs in the innings. Rye skipper Darren Groves opened

the innings for his side on Saturday and top-scored with 39. Ben Ashworth with 30 and Corey Harris with 27 were the next best bats, helping the Demons to 168 against Crib Point. The Magpies bowlers, led by Warren Herrington with 5/30 and Luke Herrington with 3/13 from 14 overs, were dominant and gave their side the upper hand. The Pies are 0/10 in reply. Heatherhill has given Ballam Park plenty of work to do in their match at Bruce Park. The Hills scored 9/242 from 75 overs, keeper-batsman Dean Shaw making 38, John Hille Jnr 37 and Christian Heath 31. However, it was James Bolletta who did the bulk of the damage with the bat, scoring 71 batting at eight. Knights skipper Matty Roach was the pick of the bowlers with 3/47 from 14 overs.

Blues, Somie, Pines fight for finals spots as Langy set Boneo big task DISTRICT By IT Gully THE temperature continues to rise in MPCA District cricket following the first day’s play of round nine. The results of matches in this round will probably define which teams play finals and which miss out. Heading into the round, the teams that simply have to win to keep their chances alive are Hastings, Pines and Somerville, eighth, seventh and sixth on the table. Hastings is up against Frankston YCW, the cellar dwellers of the competition. However, the Stonecats managed to score a competitive 178. The Blues would be favourites to win the match,

but reaching the total will be no easy task as the team has struggled with the bat this season. In reply, the Blues have already lost a wicket and resume on 1/10 next Saturday. Luke Hewitt dominated for the Blues with the ball with 6/66. Somerville is more than capable of scoring the 211 needed to defeat thirdplaced Baden Powell. The Eagles are half a game outside the four and, given the wealth of talent, are capable of causing carnage if they get going. On Saturday, they bowled first and Jack Kennedy and Daniel Kelly each claimed three wickets. Sam Delaney bowled two balls, was hit to the rope and didn’t reappear. Braves skipper Rhys Elmi top-

scored with 53, which included seven fours and a six, while Adam Landry (46) and Josh Waldron (45) made more than solid contributions. Pines has a tough task versus second-placed Carrum at Carrum, but will be reasonably happy with the first day’s play. While looking at the scores might indicate Carrum’s 163 was below par, the slow and spongy surface at Roy Dore means this is a competitive score. Josh Dent was best for the Lions with 54, and Shaun Foster hit 34. Brett Hudgson was the best of the Pines bowlers with 4/52. At the top of the ladder, leader Langwarrin has set fourth-placed Boneo a massive 298 for victory. A number of Kangas got starts and

contributed, including openers Simon McEvoy (45) and Mark Cooper (33) as well as Andy Johnson (37), Ben Wells (36), Jake Prosser (33 not out) and David Ross (26). The best of the Langwarrin bats was Danny Weare with 65. Chris Jobling was the best of the Boneo bowlers with 3/95. If Boneo loses, it is in danger of falling out of the four. Main Ridge is on the same points as Boneo and is locked in a ding-dong battle with Delacombe Park. If the second-placed Parkers can win this match, the team’s position in the top four looks safe. On Saturday, Delacombe Park rolled Main Ridge for 132, Shane Deal claiming 3/21 and Chris Brittain 3/29. Jason Albress top-scored for the Ridge with 37.

However, while the Parkers looked to be in the box seat, they slumped to 3/53 after 32 overs. Nick Christides and Joel Malcolm are back in the shed, but Jon Guthrie and Chris Brittain are still to come. Flinders’ bowlers will need to produce something special to get the points against Seaford. Batting first, the visitors managed 183, Tommy Clements top-scoring with 65 and Dwayne Field 34. Mike Manders opened the bowling for Seaford, sent down 31.5 overs and finished with the impressive figures of 5/68. Skipper Nathan Volpe bowled 20 overs and claimed 3/39.

Islanders scare Tyabb bats SUB-DISTRICT By IT Gully THREE important matches being played in MPCA Sub-district could have a big impact on the season. Top-of-the-table Rosebud (78 points) is playing fifth-placed Seaford Tigers (66 points), fourth-placed Red Hill (66 points) is locked in battle with sixthplaced Pearcedale (66 points), and second-placed Tyabb (78 points) is back and forth on the ferry, playing French Island. There is nothing between these sides. Balnarring, in third place on 72 points, has the bye and will be assured 12 points. Tyabb was expected to visit French Island and simply get the job done. The Islanders as individuals have produced special moments this season, but collectively have tended to struggle. On Saturday with the bat, the habit continued, bowled out by the Yabbies for 146. Ben King continues to produce with bat and ball for the Islanders and topscored with 41, receiving solid support

from Mark Cox (38). It wasn’t a good day for the Islanders and it appeared again as though they would be soundly beaten. They had no answers for the Yabbies’ Geoff Glaum, who claimed 4/32 from 11.4 overs. But Ben King then weaved some magic with the ball, claiming 5/28 from 14 overs to have the visitors in strife. At stumps, the Yabbies were reeling at 7/101. They were cruising to the total at 5/95, but this quickly became trouble at 7/97. The Yabbies have enough talent and experience to return this weekend and limp over the line. Pearcedale has set Red Hill a massive 289 for victory in their match after opener Brad Trotter set the tone with 73. The middle order of Kaine Smith (54) and Mark Andrew (58) compiled an 89-run partnership that pushed the total to a more than competitive one. Nick Wood snared 3/59 from 16 overs for the Hillmen. The home side will need to produce something special with the bat to claim victory.

Seaford has left Rosebud with plenty of work to do to get the points. The Tigers batted first at Rosebud’s Olympic Park and set the home side 225 for victory. Corey Hand top-scored for the Tigers with 48 and David James scored 47 to be the best two bats. Brian Doughty picked up 3/60 for the Buds and Darren Kerr 3/71. Dromana has set Skye 247 for victory after Mark Whitehead scored 105 for his team on Saturday. Andrew Thomson also hit a half-century, while Dave Timmer ensured the tail wagged with a timely 24. Ben Milano was the pick of the Skye bowlers with 5/30 from 21.2 overs, which included 10 maidens. Tootgarook is 1/35 in response to Carrum Downs’ 163. Matty Whelan ripped through the Cougars batsmen, claiming 6/42, while Scott Didcock took 2/41.

Beware the blue-ringed octopus ON THE LINE By Paul “Tracker” Pingiaro THE blue-ringed octopus has returned to the shallows of Port Phillip and Western Port, with two spotted near beaches in Mornington harbour and one seen at Yaringa Boat Harbour in the past two weeks. The tiny octopus is as deadly as any snake, spider, jellyfish or shark. It develops brilliant blue ring-shaped markings when disturbed, and if people are stung, they can experience respiratory failure and even death. The creature is a plain brown or greyish colour when not disturbed. The octopus is found in rock pools and is very attractive, especially to children and tourists, who are at risk if they pick them up. Children playing among rocks and rock pools need to be actively supervised by an adult. Bites can also occur when the creature is trodden on by waders. Museum Victoria says the bite of a blue-ringed octopus delivers a hit of tetrodotoxin, which is found in the octopus’s saliva. This venom also is found in puffer fish. “The venom has a devastating effect on the nerve system; it blocks sodium channels and causes breathing difficulties, numbness and paralysis,” the museum states on its website. “There is no antivenom and without immediate medical intervention, the risk of death is high.” A Museum Victoria team is studying “one of our most notorious marine creatures” and seeks “more infor-

mation to assist with treating blueringed octopus bites”. Intervention can include mechanical ventilation until the effects of the venom wear off. Boating tip IF you are taking people for their first boat trip or first trip on your boat, a five-minute pre-trip briefing can often avoid all sorts of dramas if you get into trouble on the water. Show everyone where the life jackets are in case the skipper gives the order for everyone to don them. It’s amazing how many boats have them tucked away and guests or crew

don’t know where to find them. Point out the locations of fire extinguishers and instruct passengers and crew on their use. Other items to be discussed during a briefing could include first aid kit, anchor, flares and marine radios. As a rule, nowadays marine radios are more of a reporting tool than a safety device, and while they are mandatory equipment on some vessels, the coverage of mobile phones means most emergency calls can be conducted via mobile. With this in mind, all those hitting the water should have the local rescue

number stored on their phone. If there’s an emergency where grave or imminent danger is present, dial 000. A well-prepared and organised crew is a safe and happy crew, so play it safe on the water. Where they’re biting THERE is offshore action with a few nice mako sharks to 50kg being landed. Also offshore are good numbers of arrow squid and flathead, and in close on the reefs, kingfish are being caught. The best way to attract kingfish is by using a string of 4-6 plain CDs tied together and lightly weighted. In Western Port, the waterway can

be summed up easily – gummy sharks in the channels and deeper water, and whiting on the banks. Deeper waters also are holding the occasional snapper and seven-gill shark, and the bycatch in the shallows has been salmon, trevally, mullet, flathead and mackerel. Southern Port Phillip has gummies in the channels, and whiting and flathead in the shallows. Off Mt Martha and Mornington in 19-22 metres of water, there is a good chance of hooking a snapper or gummy shark. In close the squid have been good and the flathead consistent. In the next 1-2 weeks, King George whiting will pick up on shallow reefs and provide a good target for landbased and boating anglers. Fishing has been reasonable from piers on both bays with anglers catching garfish, mullet, squid, flathead, salmon and even a trophy snapper or two. We have entered the last month of summer and with the awesome fishing of autumn approaching, the serious fishing starts soon. Tight lines and calm seas.  Paul “Tracker” Pingiaro has been fishing since he could hold a rod and stay in the boat. He has boat hire businesses in Mornington and Yaringa Boat Harbour in Somerville. He has been a fishing writer for magazines and brings his knowledge to MP News Group for season 2012-13.

Finals on the line as Blues chase 178 HASTINGS CRICKET By Greg Bradshaw HASTINGS Firsts travelled to Frankston to take on last-placed YCW. The home side batted first, and the opening pair made a solid start, putting on 37 before Luke Hewitt made the breakthrough. He claimed another wicket 10 runs later, 2/47 after 21 overs, and then his third before Issy Dias dismissed two batsmen on the stroke of tea, 5/105. After the break, the YCW batsmen ground out important runs against tight bowling and took the final score to 178. Hewitt bowled superbly, taking career-best figures of 6/66 off 18.3 overs. Dias took 2/35 off 19 and Tim Birch chipped in with 2/51 off 22 tight overs. Hastings had 5 overs to face and lost a wicket to finish at 1/10. Next week the senior players will need to be at their best to grab a win and have a slight chance of playing finals. Seconds v Frankston YCW: YCW was sent in to bat, which looked to be a good decision when the side was 3/29 in the 15th over, but dropped catches let a couple of batsmen get away and YCW posted a competitive 160. With the Ryan brothers unavailable, the bowling was a little thin. Liam Bradshaw bowled 25 overs and posted season-best figures of 4/49 and Chris White’s leg spin continued to baffle as he rolled down 19 overs for 4/43. The evergreen Stephen Thomson took 2/30 off 12 overs.

Hastings had 14 overs to bat and scored 1/28. Thirds v Sorrento: Batting first, Hastings got off to a flyer thanks to

a rapid 68 from Greg Bradshaw, but wickets tumbled regularly and the side was bowled out for only 169 in the 32nd over.

Jaysen Bradshaw’s 25no helped, but the other batsmen did not put enough value on their wickets. Sorrento was confident of chasing down the total, but Luke Gibbons produced a withering spell, claiming 5 wickets in his first 6 overs, 5/28, and it was pretty much game over. Kayne Lewis came on in the 13th over and took 3 wickets before Matt Sawosz claimed the 10th wicket, Sorrento all out for 64. Gibbons finished with 5/22, Lewis 3/14 and Sawosz 1/2. The side is in third place on the ladder with 4 games to play. Fourths v Mornington: Hastings batted first but again failed to post a competitive score. Only Peter Hewitt (23), Stuart Hanley (19) and Chris Lehmann (18) reached double figures as Hastings made 94 off only 25 overs. Finals-bound Mornington made hard work of the run chase thanks to good spells from Tristan Dales 2/21 and Jaysen Bradshaw 2/8 4/22 after 8 overs but Mornington steadied and finished with 6/101. The loss means the side will not make finals with two games to play. Under-15s v Sorrento: Sorrento was asked to bat first and lost its first wicket with 3 runs on the board, but the next pair put on 92. Two batters retired on 50, another two made 30s and Sorrento scored 6/232 off its 45 overs. Billy Jeremiah took 2/30, Lachlan Cox 1/16, Broadie Prestige 1/9, Andrew Jiffs 1/26 and Jesse Muffed 1/18. Hastings batted with Prestage (50 retired) and Matt Foy (47) putting on a brilliant 110 opening partnership.

The rest of the boys had a fair dinkum crack, but fell 40 runs short, 8/191 against the undefeated top side. Sean Hewitt made 19, Jeffs 17no and Jeremiah 13. Under-13s v Flinders: Hastings batted first, getting away to a good and was 1/56 but fell to 5/58 then 6/88 and all out for 94. Shelby Lothian-Burdett made 16, Ben Paarlberg 13, Thomas Finn 12, Ryan McNamara 10 and Regan Taylor 9. Flinders batted well, but 45 extras was the difference between winning and losing as Flinders made 7/125. McNamara took 2/6, Paarlberg 2/9, Finn 1/13, Blake Mealey 1/6 and Lachie Robertson 1/6. With one game remaining the team will play finals but where it finishes on the ladder will be decided by next week’s results. Under-11s v Tyabb: Played over two weekends as two Twenty20 games, the first saw Tyabb make 13/54 (Bailey Esler 2/9, Pat Wilson 2/1, Thomas Finn 2/5, Jake Maxted 2/1, Matt Dodd 1/5 and Max Bradshaw 1/4) and Hastings made 2/85 with Wilson 15ret and Finn 15ret. In game two, Hastings made 5/79 with Devlin Webb 13ret and Wilson 12ret and Tyabb made 9/67 with Lachie Robertson taking 2/4 and Maxted 1/4. Social functions: Twenty20 match between Hastings Cricket Club and Hastings Football Club is at 5.15pm on Friday 22 February. Friday 8 March, midday: Lunch with Damien Fleming, two-course meal. Come and hear some great cricket yarns. Bookings: 5979 1740.
