Backing for green wedges By Mike Hast THE shire council has been surprised at the level of interest from residents at its first four “Plan Peninsula” meetings for protecting green wedge zones. The first of 15 “Plan Peninsula Conversations” started late last month in Rye and Mornington, with residents providing ideas to Mornington Peninsula Shire planners.

Meetings at Mt Eliza and Dromana were held last week. There has been almost unanimous support for retaining the existing 70-30 split between green wedges and development, and keeping land for farming rather than development. “Residents want farmers to be allowed to be farmers and not forced to be developers due to rising rates and

other costs,” a shire spokesman said. The shire’s draft budget proposes increasing the agricultural rate from 30 to 35 per cent. It would see owners of agricultural land pay full rates on the land around homes and outbuildings, but 35 per cent on the remainder. There was strong support for flora and fauna corridors, also known as biolinks. Although the first meetings have

been on the Port Phillip side of the peninsula, there also was strong support for an expanded Port of Hastings to become a “green” port with the state government encouraged to do all possible to keep Western Port unpolluted. Western Port residents can have a say about the future of the peninsula over the next 20 to 30 years at three public meetings this week.

Residents’ input will form part of the shire’s submission to the state government’s “Mornington Peninsula Planning Statement”, promised prior to the 2010 state election (‘Plans for our future’, The News, 19/6/12). The statement will guide how the government allows the peninsula to develop and what will be preserved. Continued Page 2

“Conversations” will be held at Somerville Secondary College on Wednesday, Hastings Community Hub on Thursday and Flinders Civic Hall on Saturday. A meeting for Balnarring area residents will be held on Friday 3 August in Balnarring Community Hall. About 200 residents attended the first four meetings – 40 at Rye, 20 at Mornington, more than 100 at Mt Eliza and 25 at Dromana. The shire says the meetings enable communities to “talk about the things they most value about their towns – and the peninsula as a whole – and what concerns they have for the future”. Topics raised at the first four sessions included:  More paths and shared paths to encourage cycling and walking; and the completion of the Bay Trail.  Keeping commercial areas compact and preserving the “charm” of peninsula towns.  Facilitating year-round employment for young people.  Changing Point Nepean Rd from an arterial to a local road.  Concerns about the impact of Peninsula Link freeway on lifestyle and amenity.

El Nino’s ‘likely’ spring return By Mike Hast WEATHER forecasters say the chances of Australia returning to drier conditions are likely with the El Nino weather pattern set to reform in October. El Nino was responsible for 14 years of drought in many parts of the nation including the southeast corner. The drought broke in the autumn and winter of 2010 and many parts of Australia have had good rains during the past two years. Last Thursday, Alex Zadnik of Weatherzone.com told Radio Port Phillip the chance of El Nino returning was looking more certain. The former Sorrento resident, now chief meteorologist at the Sydney-based weather company, said there was strong evidence of warming of the sea surface in the equatorial Pacific Ocean, a key indicator of El Nino conditions. “Computer models picked the La Nina event – which led to floods and above-average rain in the past two years in Queensland, NSW and Victoria – and are now predicting a likely return to drier conditions,” he said. Mr Zadnik said the dams supplying greater Melbourne were 70 per cent full, “the highest level for 14 years”. A majority of weather agencies around the world including in Australia, United States, United Kingdom and Japan were pointing to an El Nino return. “If we see sea surface temperatures half a degree above normal for a number of months, we call the El Nino conditions.” More temperature buoys, satellite information and observations taken aboard ships in the Pacific allowed the computer modelling to be more accurate, he said. “After two years of good growing conditions, fire agencies such as the CFA and DSE would know about the predictions and would be preparing for a possible dry spring and summer and heightened fire risk.” Last week ABC Radio reported that El Nino weather events meant drier conditions across Australia. “Despite the plentiful rain along the east coast over the past week, there are still large areas of the country that have below-average rainfall. “El Nino occurs when the central and eastern Pacific warms up, causing major shifts in weather patterns.” The Bureau of Meteorology said it was too soon to say if a new El Nino system would bring drought, but most computer models were pointing to drier than average conditions in spring and summer.

El Nino coming: Above, 14 years of very dry conditions caused by El Nino between 1996 and 2010 saw high fire risks throughout the southeast of Australia, including the Mornington Peninsula. Residents of Crib Point were forced to fight a blaze that burnt beside the train line in 2003. Picture: Yanni Right, Alex Zadnik of Weatherzone.com and other meteorologists have warned that Australia could see a return of El Nino and drier conditions as early as October.

Marine alliance launches study By Mike Hast THE nascent Mornington Peninsula Marine Alliance has been given a $60,000 grant from the federal government to conduct a feasibility study. It will recommend how the peninsula’s marine industry can best be expanded, taking into account land use, deep water access and workforce training. The alliance was formed last year after former Mornington Peninsula Shire infrastructure director Bruce Douglas conducted an initial study of the sector in late 2010. As reported in The News last year (‘Marine industry worth $200m’, 15/3/11), the sector is the largest by turnover in the shire, surpassing BlueScope Steel, the naval base at HMAS Cerberus and the shire council. Mr Douglas, a civil engineer who had a 30-year career in local government including 11 years with the shire, said the peninsula’s commercial and recreational marine industry employed about 1100 workers, served 25,000 people and contributed $200 million each year to the peninsula’s GDP. Foundation members of a board formed last year were Hastings-based Crib Point Engineering, Hart Marine of Mornington, Sealite of Somerville, Wooden Boat Shop of Sorrento, Yaringa Harbour of Somerville, the shire’s economic development manager Shane Murphy and Mr Douglas. Seed money came from the five businesses and the shire. New members were Martha Cove Marina and Searoad Ferries. “We see the alliance as a chamber of commerce of marine stakeholders,” Mr Douglas said. He said the study by land use economics specialist Matters More Consulting, led by Marianne Stoettrup, would take about 14 weeks.

Results would guide the alliance as well as inform the shire’s proposed marine precincts planning study. Matters More did economic impact assessment work in 2008 for the under-construction Peninsula Link freeway. A key topic of the study, funded by the federal government’s Department of Education, Employment and Workplace Relations, will be training and professional development. Mr Douglas said if the marine sector was to grow, trained workers would be needed. The recent closure of a boatbuilding apprenticeship course at Williamstown by Victoria University had been a blow, but provided an opportunity for a similar or more comprehensive marine workforce course to be started in the region. Early discussions had been held with Chisholm TAFE, he said. The $60,000 is part of the government’s stimulus for the region following job losses at BlueScope Steel in Hastings last year after the closure of the hot strip mill and one of two paint lines. Mr Douglas said possible areas for development of the marine industry included Yaringa Harbour, Hastings and Crib Point on Western Port, and Martha Cove (Safety Beach) and Blairgowrie on Port Phillip. The alliance was actively recruiting members, he said. “We have 23 yacht clubs on the peninsula, other water-based sporting clubs and tourism activities, and we hope they’ll all see the value of working together to advance our entire marine industry.”  Mornington Peninsula Marine Alliance will have a stand at the careers expo in August at Peninsula Community Theatre in Wilsons Rd, Mornington. For more information about the alliance, contact Bruce Douglas on 0457 785 159 or visit www.mpmarinealliance.com


Mrs Emu’s cunning whale-saving plan MRS Emu, no friend of asylum seekers arriving by boat – she insists on calling them “reffos”, to her spouse’s acute embarrassment – has a great affection for the minke whale, despite never having met one. This puzzles Emu, since emus are not related to any species of cetacean, even though they, too, are completely flightless. Perhaps she thinks minkes are maritime minks, with beautiful fur coats. “What a clever plan that clever Tony Abbott has come up with,” she trills, eye glistening, “to stop the boats reaching Australia. And so simple. Just send Australian patrol boats to board them and remove most of their fuel so they have only enough to get back to Indonesia.” Emu refrains from telling her some boats are coming direct from Sri Lanka and may not know the way to Indonesia. Such information, he has learned over the years, is inimical to maintaining a calm matrimonial atmosphere. He hesitates to ask: what if they switch to sails for propulsion? “And now that clever Tony has moved to protect the minke whales from those South Korean whaling boats,” she says with another frisson of the stern. “Julia would never have thought of that on her own.” Although, Emu says to himself, she actually did. But the bride has not finished. “Now clever Tony can use his reffo (Emu winces) boat plan to thwart the whalers,” she declaims, voice rising. “He’ll announce any day now that when elected he will send patrol boats to board the whalers, and remove most of their fuel so they have only enough to get back to South Korea. That’ll

spike their harpoons!” Her little red eye glitters with triumph. Emu spots a few obstacles in this plan. But he, no fool, resists the urge to argue. That way lies domestic purgatory of vivid and uncomfortable memory: emasculation via confiscation of the TV remote.

Sunday radio: anything but truth WELCOME to the 16th century, thought a shocked Emu. He had been listening to Sunday morning radio, to a man with two names, pontificating on such things as TAFE cuts and boat people – or, as his one-named co-host preferred to call them, illegal immigrants. Emu had rarely heard such a display of ignorance, intolerance and prejudice, mainly from callers to the show – but he listens mainly to radio stations with no adverts. Is this what they call bogan radio, he thought. Smooth radio voices don’t mask rubbish. It was actually a station to which Mrs Emu often glues herself during the day. So this is where she gets her opinions from, he thought. He had switched on the set and there it was, with two chaps shouting over each other to be heard, producing a great deal of angry babble and little else. “The Pacific solution was effective in stopping the boats and reducing that flow of people illegally coming to

Australia via the Indian Ocean, right?” That was one-name speaking. Wrong, Emu wanted to scream. Refugees, on boats or aircraft, are not illegal and those handed the power of a radio microphone or TV camera surely have a duty to know what they’re talking about. This bloke is perpetuating a lamentable but very popular untruth. More babble, then two-names comes in over the top. “The Indonesians let these boats sail every day and they do nothing to stop them. So maybe we should say to the Indonesians, ‘You have a lot of blood on your hands’.” This bloke should be made ambassador to Jakarta, thinks Emu. He would sort the whole problem out in a day. But surely he knows boats are now coming directly from Sri Lanka. Liberal MP Mal Washer gets a spanking from two-names for advocating a joint party approach on boat refugees. “Yes, I am attacking him because he’s a demblitt,” two-names shouts. Emu is unfamiliar with this word. Perhaps he meant dimwit. One-name, obviously unfazed by it, defends MP Washer, who is an MD and therefore certainly a cut or two above your average demblitt. Then an absolute pearl from twonames. “But there’s one question I want to ask,” he says. “Apparently on these – this boat – these boats – that sank, there were mostly Afghan young men.” One-name interjects: “Hazaras; we believe they are Hazaras.” Two-names: “Right. OK. So what’s the problem with them staying in Afghan [sic] and joining the army?” One-name points out that Hazaras are a persecuted minority. “OK,” says twonames, “then they should sort that out

among themselves.” Problem solved. Let’s send two-names to Kabul to moderate this millennia-old problem. At this point Emu’s senses are reeling. It is like a Monty Python sketch. He rejects the bizarre notion this might indeed be a comedy show. If not, is two-names for real? Has he any rational, arguable opinions at all or is his “knowledge” base largely a smouldering cocktail of bile, bias and prejudice? Unfortunately Emu gets little comfort from his dictionary on the meaning of “opinion”. Definition one: “a view or judgement formed about something, not necessarily based on fact or knowledge”. Definition two: “the beliefs or views of a large number or majority of people about a particular thing.” He prefers Definition three: “a formal statement of advice by an expert on a professional matter.” Should media people be entitled to express opinions “not necessarily based on fact or knowledge”, or should they be expected to behave as professionals, to know what they are talking about? The final word came from Ron, who called in from the 16th century to give his opinion. “I believe the Federal Cabinet are murderers,” he began. “They’re murdering these illegal immigrants by not stopping the boats.” Finding himself unchallenged, he continued quickly: “I think we need to cancel our membership of the refugee convention: we need to tow these boats back. We need to cancel aid and billions we give to Indonesia because they’re causing this problem. “We should bring them to Australia, put them in camps and then we should

send them, aaahm, home on planes, particularly if they have no identification and I believe we should be publicly executing the people smugglers.” Whoa! Public executions? Ron, you missed advocating heads on pikes on Princes Bridge. And hang on! How can they be put in camps if the boats have been towed back? Ron continued: “They should have no legal representation or money, they should not get any immigration status. Australia needs to look after our own, our homeless, we should not be using military accommodation to accommodate these people.” At this point the co-hosts interrupted – not to challenge his appalling views, but to say that criminal refugees are already sent back but that genuine refugees – “gen-u-ine refugees” – should be looked after. Two-names took over: “But there are people – and this is something people will not accept – there are people who are looking for – and I don’t object [to] them looking for a better life – but they just want to get here for an economic reason, not because their lives are threatened,” he opined ponderously. And it has always been so. “Give me your tired, your poor, your huddled masses yearning to breathe free,” says the verse at the base of the Statue of Liberty in New York harbour, welcoming the torrent from Europe who built the country. Australia has had its own torrent for two centuries. Poor confused, delusional, irrational, hate-filled Ron. The next morning he rang ABC talkback, where the host tried to argue with him, for a minute or so, then cut him off.

Extinction fear over bandicoots By Mike Hast THE southeast’s iconic, rare mammal – the southern brown bandicoot – may be extinct in the Pines Flora and Fauna Reserve in Frankston North. Surveys done by the Australian Research Centre for Urban Ecology for the builder of the Peninsula Link freeway revealed just two bandicoot hairs in baited hair traps set during summer 200910 and spring 2010. Some diggings likely to belong to bandicoots were detected, but no sightings of the animal were made despite scientists using remotely triggered cameras and other methods at 45 sites in 2009, 49 sites in summer 2009-10, 76 sites in autumn 2010 and 75 sites in spring 2010. ARCUE used the same survey techniques in the Pines Reserve as at five sites known to contain bandicoots (Bayles, Cranbourne, Quail Island near Warneet, Koo Wee Rup and Bunyip) to confirm the Pines methodology. “No SBBs were detected on camera at the Pines FFR, despite being regularly detected using cameras at all of the control sites,” Rodney van der Ree of ARCUE reported. “The low number of signs (hairs and diggings) and lack of photos indicates that the SBB population at the Pines FFR is likely to be very small and has declined significantly since the 1980s, when SBBs were still abundant.” The likely extinction of the southern brown bandicoot (SBB) has been described by conservationists as a black day for the community. The lack of bandicoots in Pines Reserve has seen the Department of Sustainability and Environment tell freeway authority Linking Melbourne Authority that its contractor Southern Way does not now have to erect fences in the reserve after the freeway is completed later this year. The reserve has been cut in two by the freeway.

Southern Way had set aside $1.6 million to erect and maintain fences in Pines Reserve to protect bandicoots and other native animals, a condition of DSE allowing the freeway to go through the middle of the reserve. The freeway builder has spent millions of dollars constructing dedicated fauna underpasses – four culverts and a two-span bridge – specifically designed for SBBs. Two drainage structures were also designed to allow crossing by wildlife. Frankston conservationists Hans Brunner and Jim Kerin have written to the Victorian auditorgeneral complaining about the way Pines Reserve has been managed by Parks Victoria, a division of DSE, and about predator-proof fences not being built. “The bandicoot population in Pines Reserve was the largest in the region in 1999, but is now likely extinct,” they said. “We believe that this Nature Conservation Reserve has been managed incompetently and not in accordance with the principle objective of its generic management plan, which is to conserve and protect species, communities and habitats of indigenous plants, animals and other organisms. “The demise of this animal is directly attributable to Parks Victoria’s failure to effectively control predation by foxes, dogs and cats. “Concerns regarding the species’ welfare have been repeatedly bought to the attention of DSE staff (local, regional and head office) since 2004.” Mr Brunner said as long as dog walking was permitted in the reserve and predator-proof fences were not erected, “all is lost for the bandicoots”. “The irony of it all is that hundreds of thousands of dollars have been spent on underpasses and on revegetation of bandicoot habitat, but Parks Victoria and DSE have given up on the bandicoots in the Pines.”

It’s a bug’s life but the right stuff can turn the tide By Mike Hast TO Penny Woodward, gardens are places somewhat like the one in the 1989 comedy Honey, I Shrunk the Kids. Ms Woodward sees things at the micro level: “From the lowliest worm, centipede, ant, beetle, caterpillar and bug to frogs, lizards and birds, and humans, everything has a place in the garden. “Everything in the garden depends on other garden occupants and interacts with them,��� says the Somers gardener and bestselling author of organic gardening books. The prolific author has just had published a revised version of her bestselling Pest-Repellent Plants with new information and new photographs. As well as more than 60 relevant plants, it includes other organic solutions, from traps and barriers to sprays, oils, dusting powders and washes made from common kitchen products such as molasses, coffee and bicarbonate of soda. It is being launched at Petersen’s Books in Hastings on Saturday 14 July. More than 20,000 copies are in print and the new second edition is likely to be as popular with an increasing number of people growing their own food and trying to keep bugs off their produce. “The philosophy of pest-repellent gardening is that the garden should be a haven for all creatures and Queen of herbs: Penny Woodward in her garden at Somers. Picture: Dan Coates

plants, big and small, not a battleground,” she said. “Using sprays, even organic ones, should be a last resort. I encourage people to spend time in the garden and get to know the insects as not all of them are pests. “Gardeners need to concentrate on healthy soil and healthy plants as well as a diversity of planting, including predator-attracting plants.” Ms Woodward says the dedicated gardener will provide homes and food for frogs, birds, lizards and bats, all of which feed on pests. The book covers plants that mask, repel and kill pests. It has information on traps, trickery, netting and barriers to keep pests away from precious plants. Common household items that are organic and can also be used against pests include soap, molasses, coffee, bicarbonate of soda, copper, sulphur and even water. “Your observations will show you the complexity and fragility of a garden ecosystem and some of the astonishing relationships that exist between insects and plants,” she said. “Forget about bombarding everything that moves with a cocktail of the latest pesticides.”  Pest-repellent Plants (full-colour paperback, 160 pages, $27.95) is being launched by Pam Vardy, convener of 3CR’s Garden Show, at Petersen’s Books, 103 High St, Hastings, at 1.30pm on Saturday 14 July. Free event, but book on 5979 8233. More information about Penny Woodward is at: www.penny woodward.com.au

Efficacy of nepetalactone PENNY Woodward says there are some almost miraculous substances that can help gardeners win the war against bugs. Nepetalactone features in her book Pest-Repellent Plants. First isolated from the plant catnip in 1941, the substance is 10 times more effective than DEET (N,N-diethyl-meta-toluamide) at repelling mosquitoes Ms Woodward writes that it also repels bloodsucking flies that attack cattle and horses. “If you grow catnip around the vegetable garden and near the house, it will repel mice and rats. Fresh catmint leaves sprinkled along ants’ trails will repel them,” she writes. The related species catmint will repel cockroaches and the plant’s oil has been used to kill hair lice. There is a recipe for catmint spray in the book. When it comes to caterpillars, Ms Woodward is more hands-on. “The most effective way to manage caterpillars is to spend 30 minutes in the garden early in the morning plucking them off your plants. “If there is a huge invasion, as can happen with army worms (caterpillars of several different moths), it may be necessary to spray immediately with soap, as treating with organic insecticides could take too long to take effect and the damage may be done.” Ms Woodward’s encyclopedic knowledge of gardening started when she worked as a volunteer at the Chelsea Physic Garden in London in 1980. Back in Australia, she ran a herb nursery, wrote An Australian Herbal (now called Herbs for Australian Gardens) and looked after a National Trust property before moving to the peninsula. Since then she has been researching, writing about, talking about and growing useful plants.

Shire shows the arts way THE “sustainable peninsula” may be making way for “a creative peninsula” as Mornington Peninsula Shire seeks to involve residents in formulating an arts and culture strategy. The shire’s draft Arts & Culture Strategy – A Creative Peninsula – is on public exhibition for comment and discussion during forums at Hastings, Mornington, Sorrento and Rosebud. The strategy involves forming a panel to advise the shire on “cultural policy and development priorities”; developing a public art policy and management plan; providing music bursaries; and increasing the number of arts and cultural festivals, “in particular low-cost communitybased music festivals”. The shire says its strategy “reflects and articulates a vision for arts and culture; the needs and aspirations of our community; the shire’s role in local arts and cultural development; and priorities for planning, facilities, programs and communication”. “Art and culture is more than just providing entertainment, within a community it can foster creativity, inspiration and innovation,” the mayor Cr Frank Martin stated in a shire news release. “It helps strengthen communities through nurturing local identity and a sense of place, and can bring people of diverse backgrounds together to create and enjoy art, and to create a more livable community.” A forum to discuss the arts on the peninsula will be held at Hastings Hall, 3 High St, 1-4pm Wednesday July 25. The strategy can be inspected at council offices or downloaded from www.mornpen.vic.gov.au under Have your Say. For further information contact cultural planner Andrea Ebsworth on 0438 051 092.

Fishy tales: Silver trevally congregate around reef balls at Tedesco Reef off Seaford. A similar artificial reef will be built within casting distance of Frankston pier. Picture: Fisheries Victoria

New reef on way for pier anglers ANGLERS casting a line off Frankston pier could catch big feeds of fish during next summer. Fisheries Victoria is building a reef about 50 metres off the pier that it hopes will attract prized eating fish such as snapper and flathead. The reef, one of three in Port Phillip, will be completed by the end of August. It will be similar to three artificial reefs built by Fisheries off Frankston, Seaford and Aspendale in May 2009, which senior project officer Richard Rogala says have been successful.

The Frankston reef and two off Altona and Portarlington will be built from concrete, domeshaped balls similar to those used in 2009, he said. The one off Frankston would consist of 99 balls in three arms. Mr Rogala said surveys of fishers had proved the structures had successfully encouraged marine life including fish to take up residence. The three reefs will cost about $450,000. Fisheries would monitor colonisation via underwater video as well as inspections conducted by divers, Mr Rogala said.

Anglers would also be asked if they were having success. Fisheries Victoria executive director Anthony Hurst said the reefs would be funded by fishing licence fees and would “improve opportunities for shore-based anglers chasing popular species such as snapper and flathead”. “The three piers were selected in consultation with local angling groups, councils and state government departments, and build on the success of three reefs deployed for boat-based anglers in 2009,” he said.

Upgrade limits park access

Business sold: Frankston MP Geoff Shaw, second from left, celebrates the sale of his accountancy business at CBs in Mt Eliza with new owners Ian Cockle, left, Ian Davey and Anthony Ryan, all principals of ROCG Blackford Davey Stevens. Picture: Margaret Harrison, BusinessTimes

MP breaks from tax business BELEAGURED Frankston MP Geoff Shaw has sold one of his high-profile businesses. The accountancy firm Geoff Shaw and Partners has been sold to Mornington-based ROCG Blackford Davey Stevens. Mr Shaw told The Times he had operated the family business with his former wife Sally for almost 20 years. “The sale of my business follows many months of negotiations,” Mr Shaw said. “As the state member for Frankston, I remain committed to working

hard for our local community. I thank my clients for their support, many of whom have remained with me for many, many years. “I also thank my wonderful business partner and staff for their hard work and heartfelt support.” Mr Shaw described the opening of ROCG in Frankston as “a win for the local community” and wished the company success. “Their success as a practice with international affiliations will benefit their clients, staff and the local community.” The state Ombudsman George Brou-

wer is investigating Mr Shaw over whistleblower claims that his taxpayer-funded vehicle was used for business purposes in connection with his Southern Cross Hardware business in Carrum Downs. Mr Shaw has denied knowledge of it being used for country and interstate commercial trips and has offered to repay “any costs that may be associated with any use of the vehicle by the nominated driver that is outside of the parliamentary guidelines”.

PEDESTRIANS and cyclists are being kept out of the Quarantine Station area of Point Nepean National Park while work is done on essential services and roads. Parks Victoria’s manager of Point Nepean Stuart Hughes said the works were on track to be completed by the end of the year and there would be no access for pedestrians or cyclists for about two weeks. He said the works program had been designed to minimise disruption for people visiting the Quarantine Station and that the park’s transport service was still operating. The works involve laying new pipes beside existing roads. “It’s exciting to see the scale of the works underway and bringing the infrastructure up to a contemporary standards to cope with the increasing number of visitors to this great national park,” Mr Hughes said.

The $13.88 million upgrade at Point Nepean was the largest core infrastructure project for a Victorian national park, he said. Work in the park includes:  5.5km of service trenches for electricity, sewer, water, gas and telecommunications as well as upgrades to existing roads and a new 140-space car park.  4.6km of new sewer pipes along Point Nepean Road and into the Quarantine Station precinct.  3.2km of telecommunications.  2.6km of gas mains.  Construction of a new access road and 140-space car park and bus dropoff point within the Quarantine Station. To check conditions at Point Nepean National Park, visit www.parks.vic. gov.au or call 13 1963.

JPs ease police workload JUSTICES of the Peace at police station signing centres in Frankston and on the Mornington Peninsula can now witness documents destined for the Victorian Registry of Births, Deaths and Marriages. The move frees up police officers and follows two years of negotiations and an amendment to the registry’s policy. Ian Lyons of the Mornington Peninsula branch of Royal Victorian Association of Honorary Justices said JPs could authorise people’s signatures on forms for birth registration and change

of name. “The program reduces the administrative burdens on police at signing centres,” Mr Lyons said. Signing centres are at these police stations:  Frankston – Monday to Friday 10am3pm and Thursday 4.30-6.30pm.  Mornington – Monday 11am-2pm. Rosebud – Thursday 11am-2pm.  Hastings – Wednesday 7-9pm.  Carrum Downs – Tuesday 5-7pm.  Cranbourne – Monday to Saturday 1-3pm.

Water retailer coming to Frankston SOUTH East Water will build new headquarters in Frankston and move about 700 staff from its head office in Heatherton and two other locations. An architecturally designed office block will be built on Kananook Creek Boulevard between Wells and Playne streets on land the authority is buying from Frankston Council. Work is expected to start early next year and end in early 2015. The move has been hailed by Frankston mayor Cr Brian Cunial

and Frankston MP Geoff Shaw. Cr Cunial said South East Water was coming home, having been based in Frankston many years ago. “The relocation will put South East Water right in the heartland of its growing catchment,” he said. The move would bring to the city about 700 permanent jobs, “which has the potential to generate a further 446 jobs through increased local consumption expenditure”. “Many more jobs will be gener-

ated during its construction.” He said with job losses often in the news, “it is a real achievement for Frankston to secure an employer of this size” and would open the door for others to follow. Geoff Shaw said the move would “provide a welcome boost to our local economy with increased business for cafes, retail outlets and entertainment complexes”. “Frankston was chosen because of its central location, covering the

South East Water footprint of the southeastern suburbs, Pakenham, Bunyip and the Mornington Peninsula,” he said. “The establishment of a head office of this size in Frankston is a great win for our community. It is the first large organisation to move to Frankston in many years.” He said the move would save South East Water $20 million over 20 years in “increased efficiencies and reduced operating costs”.

Boom time for bay city THE mayor Cr Brian Cunial said South East Water building its new headquarters in Frankston was further confirmation of an “exciting time in Frankston”. “The more local employment opportunities we can create, the more attractive Frankston will be as the preferred lifestyle choice,” he said. “Frankston is already well positioned with its beautiful bayside location, transport infrastructure, education and health services as well as a wide range of housing choices.” He said major projects about to be built included the $46 million Frankston Regional Aquatic Centre, the $19 million [Chisholm Institute] Trade Training Centre, and the long-awaited upgrade of Frankston Yacht Club. “This is on top of the $15 million redevelopment of the Peninsula Centre, which will incorporate Quest Serviced Apartments,” he said.

“When opened in February 2013, the renamed The Peninsula on the Bay will reinforce Frankston’s role as the start of the Mornington Peninsula tourism experience. “All of these projects clearly demonstrate that Frankston is a great place to invest.” The mayor and his council colleagues Alistair Wardle, David Asker and Colin Hampton inspected the first completed Quest apartment on Tuesday. Cr Hampton said he was impressed with the apartment. “The building will have balconies on the front in the shape of a wave,” he said. Cr Hampton said he had jokingly suggested the developer invite Barry Humphries to open the development. The satirist has been oft-quoted saying the Peninsula Centre (right) was the ugliest building in Australia. Mike Hast

This neat property is set on an 846-square metre block that features a double car port and three sheds with side gate access to bring extra vehicles through to the backyard.

THE true size and scope of this property is impossible to take in at a glance. This hidden sanctuary features a block of about 5000 square metres (1.25 acres) and a beautiful ranch-style home with feature verandahs on all sides. Every room in the vast interior is a highlight. A formal lounge has a brick feature wall with open fireplace and the magnificent timber kitchen features a wall oven, a large amount of cupboard space and a picture window that perfectly frames the rear of the property. The four bedrooms are all double sized with built-in robes and the main bedroom has an ensuite. For entertaining, there is a massive rumpus room and a timber deck pavilion from where you can watch the action on the full-sized mod grass tennis court. There are gum trees arranged around the boundary, but the main lawn area, while well kept, is largely untouched, and some gardens would enhance the tranquil surrounds even more and cut down on the amount of mowing. The property has parking for any number of vehicles and two huge sheds on the left boundary fence.

HISTORY

Colourful characters in life of Renoufs

Sunday school teacher: Fred’s mother Lydia. The Renoufs in about 1926: Fred, Alec, Fred senior, Nell and Lydia.

FRED Renouf celebrated his 100th birthday at the Baxter Retirement Village on 6 March. The following month he broke his arm in a fall and died on 28 April. When Fred was 96 his family urged him to set down his reminiscences. Following is a continuation of his story.

Part Three Mother’s Sunday School WHEN Tyabb State School reopened after the war, mother started a Sunday school there. She had a little portable organ and taught us the hymns from

the Methodist Sunday school hymn book. Although most of the children were not from Methodist homes, their parents were enthusiastic. The Sunday school anniversary and concerts, which were very often held in the Tyabb Hall, were very well received. In 1923 the Methodist Church in Tyabb was built. The architect was a local member of the church, Mr P Floyd whose brother was the organist at St Paul’s cathedral. He was determined that we should not use paint as this would cover the grain of the wood; accordingly we used creosote and put up with the

smell for years to follow. It was not until 1936 that a Sunday school was started in the church. By that time I had become a Sunday school teacher at Tyabb State School. In the early days of the church we met on Sunday evenings and had to struggle with hanging kerosene lamps. Later on we had both morning and evening services. Mother and I would be dropped off at the Tyabb school while dad and the other three would go to the new church at 11am. However Alec and Neal took it in turns to stay home and cook the Sunday dinner; they both made a good baked rice custard! Our vehicles In 1924 we became the proud owners of a Ford T-model truck. It was a slow truck and could only do 14 miles per hour. We had many camping and picnic trips in it. Dad would take it to the Queen Victoria Market but it was long grind up Mt Eliza and the St Kilda hill. You put your left foot on a lever on the floor and when you picked up a bit of speed you took it off and chugged along in top gear. The truck had kerosene parking lights and, because there were no batteries, the engine was started with a crank handle. When the engine stopped you were in total darkness. It was about a threehour journey to the market and very often Dad would call at greengrocers on the way and sell a few cases of apples. The truck would carry about 50 cases of fruit. We would often push the truck down the drive until it got up speed and then jump in, let out the clutch and away

Jimmy Baxter ON Sunday afternoons, if the weather was fine, the three Renouf brothers would roam the countryside. We had a cubby in the creek bed behind the tennis courts near the school. It was a soft stone area in the creek bed, had a wild cherry by it and was a nice sunny spot. From there we would climb a hill and when the native heath was out we would pick big bunches and take them to Jimmy Baxter, a digger from the First World War, who took them to Melbourne market. Jimmy was a rough diamond but always glad to help anyone. He had a Ford truck that was a faster model than ours. Jimmy had a saw bench and cut down gum trees. When the trees sprouted he would collect the shoots and take them to the market.

we’d go. At times it was a case of putting hot water in the radiator, pulling out the choke and cranking the engine. In 1926 I went with my father to the Melbourne Motor Show and we bought a Chevrolet tourer car. We now had gears and an accelerator whereas the throttle on the Ford was on the steering wheel. When we got the car Dad put his foot heavily on the accelerator and I was nearly thrown into the back seat! The Chev had running boards that could be used to put luggage on – there was no boot – and side curtains that you could put up if the weather was cold or wet. The roof could be folded back but I never remember that happening. Scouts and bikes There was no scout troop in Tyabb in my early youth, though there had been one prior to the First World War. I must have been 14 when three of us joined to form the First All Saints Troop, which met in the Church of England hall and attended a scout service once a month in the church. After a year or so we became the 1st Tyabb Scout Troop and a hall was built opposite the Tyabb Cool Store. All of us attended the first scout camp at “Joseph Harris” [Scout Park] at Mt Martha and I went to a jamboree at Lane Cove (just out of Sydney) in 1929, and later another one at Belair in the Mt Lofty Ranges in South Australia. When the world jamboree was held at Frankston in 1934 I was at an in-between age. Afterwards I became assistant scout master and carried out that role until I enlisted in the AIF. He had a billy can (in fact a jam tin) hanging on the side of the cabin and it got quite battered in his journeys, going “up the mount” as he used to call Mt Eliza at Baxter. He and many others would have to top up the radiator at a creek because the water had boiled. When Jimmy first returned from the war, he used to cover the Tyabb area with a mobile saw bench, pulled by an old horse called Mary. He cut up many of the dead trees on our property “Island View”. He was as strong as an ox and could handle extremely big timber. Once when his saw engine broke down Jimmy had to ring up and order a part. He described it as “a little three-legged jigger that fits in the fuel system”. Jimmy was a member of the Church of the Latter Day Saints and went to Salt Lake City. When he

When a sawmill was to be built to service the cool store shareholders, the hall was moved to its present location adjacent to the Tyabb recreation ground. We would ride our bikes down to the scout hall, though not always with lamps attached. One evening Neal was last to leave and in the dark he met another bike rider head on. As a result he had to be rushed to the Royal Melbourne Hospital in the Chev Tourer. Neal had suffered eye damage and concussion and spent six weeks in hospital; a worrisome time for our parents. Later on, when Neal applied to join the air force, he was turned down because his sight in one eye was limited. This left Alec and I free to join the army as Neal was able to stay at home and help Dad. Alec and I had joined a bike-racing team in Tyabb, and we trained for a 100-mile race in 1934; unfortunately it was cancelled because of floods on the other side of Western Port. However two or three nights a week we would do the “triangle” ride (Tyabb to Frankston to Mornington and back to Tyabb), which was about 27 miles. This was done after our poultry chores. Neither of us was Hubert Opperman, I’m afraid. My next move was to purchase a motorbike: a Harley Davidson side valve 750. It was a comfortable bike to ride and my social life suddenly expanded. I was assistant scout master at Tyabb on Friday nights, had Christian Endeavour at Tyabb on Tuesday and it was not unknown for me to visit Somerville Christian Endeavour or Somerville Presbyterian Youth Felcame back he announced he was a priest of the order of Melchizedek (one of the early prophets). He did not drink tea or alcohol. When he returned from America he discovered to his dismay that his wife had installed a telephone. Jimmy did not like this new-fangled thing so he ripped it off the wall and threw it down the well. The couple were childless but Jimmy had strong views on the inappropriateness of bringing up a young baby on cow’s milk: “It’s what causes bulls to fight. No wonder there are wars in the world.” Jimmy’s father owned nearly a square half mile of country on the southeast corner of Boes Rd and the Mornington-Tyabb Rd. He had the corner block (the site of Flinders College) and his two sisters each had a block of 90 acres in Boes Rd.

lowship as well as Hastings church socials. Tyabb had very few young ladies in the church. On Saturday nights, for a number of years, the Allison family in Somerville would welcome a group of young people and we would often have a sing around the piano. During this time when Australia was playing cricket against England we would listen to the radio. The radio station would receive cables from England and then syncopate the action. While waiting for the next cable they would play Another little wicket would not do us any harm if Australia was bowling and Our Don Bradman if we were batting. The party would not end until the early hours. I rode the Harley to the MCG a couple of times with either of the Allison boys to see “The Don”. I also rode to Adelaide to a scout corroboree with Harold Thornell, and another time went there to the Test cricket. The tennis at Kooyong was another destination. My father was not enthusiastic regarding sport. This was because he noticed that many farmers neglected their farms and orchards because of their interest in sport. The result was that if we wanted to have a game of tennis, we had to get up early, run across the paddock to the park about half a mile away, have our game and

return in time for breakfast! At the time I bought the Harley, Alec played cricket with the Tyabb team and I had joined the tennis club. After 5 o’clock I would give him a ride as a pillion passenger one day a week so that he could attend practice. One day, when we were about halfway to our destination, a cow started to cross the road. In the centre of the road it decided to stop and we hit the cow at about its middle. We came to a sudden stop. I went over the handle bars and skidded along the road on my chin. Alec went over the top of me and skidded to a stop on his knees. I had to

R S Potts In the late 1920s R S Potts established a business in Tyabb beside the post office. He was a very interesting gentleman, advertising his store as “the store with 17 departments”. Later he added more departments so it was the store with 17 departments with seven added! He operated long hours, having a sweet shop in the front that was allowed to stay open after hours. It was very convenient for those who worked during the day, and a meeting place for locals at night. I bought my first pushbike from

have a couple of stitches in my chin, but was otherwise unhurt. It was fortunate that the bike was so sturdy; it just did a somersault and finished upside down on the other side of the cow. The cow walked off the road but then fell down dead! As a result of this little episode I thought I would be better off with four wheels; I didn’t want to be the next poor cow to be killed. As a result I bought a little Triumph single seater. It only had one speed: it was flat out at 40 miles per hour. To be continued. Bob Potts. It was secondhand and it cost me four pounds. A new bike cost 12 pounds, 10 shillings. We young people bought our tennis racquets, sporting goods and clothing from him. If he did not have something in stock he would ring up the suppliers. If you ordered something before lunch, it would be down on the evening train (7.15 pm) and he would pick it up so that you would be able to get it that night. When I returned after the war things were in short supply and he went to no end of trouble to procure our needs: a battery for the radio, an ice chest, etc.

Tyabb WHEN the Tyabb State School was closed during the war and my sister and I walked the two miles to the Tyabb Railway State School, there was only one store in Tyabb. Sometimes Mrs Gibson, who owned the store, would make ice cream and we could buy one for a penny or a silver chocolate stick for a half penny. However we seldom had any money. At our birth, mother had taken out an AMP policy to which she contributed six pence a week, with the policy maturing when we were 21. Mrs Gibson’s store on the corner of Mornington and Flinders Rds has long since gone to make way for road widening. However the post office – run by the Slocombe family for decades – is still in the same place. Of course in the early days of the telephone the post office was also the local telephone exchange. It became the gossip centre of the town as the lady on the exchange would listen in if she thought the call might be interesting!

We had the phone connected in 1926. The Tyabb Cool Store (now the Tyabb Packing House) opened before the First World War. I think there were only four cool rooms, each with a capacity of about 4000 cases. In the late 1920s a further four rooms were added. A grower could take shares that entitled him to store 400 cases, and then nominate children or relatives for each additional 400. It was gradually extended to 80,000 cases. After the Second World War I became a director and served two terms as chairman; in all I gave 40 years of service. Even after I built my own cool store I remained on the board. What with the packing shed, sawmill and trading department we often had lengthy board meetings, sometimes twice a month. In the early days when it came to calling a meeting, the first thing to do would be to find out when the full moon would be shining so that you could find your way home by the light of the moon.

Doctor Teeth and the Eclectic Mayhem By Stuart McCullough DR Craig Emerson is more than just the Minister for Trade. He’s also a lousy singer. Indeed, to judge by his efforts last week slaughtering the Skyhooks song Horror Movie, karaoke night in Canberra must be a dismal affair. To watch him perform, it was impossible not to be reminded of those hapless souls who used to turn up to the “Idol” auditions, convinced that they were the greatest thing to happen to singing since Caruso gave the larynx a wobble, only to be humiliated on national television because they sounded more like David Caruso than Enrico. This was much the same, except the humiliation was selfinflicted. Indeed, mockery from the press pack was notable for its absence. It is a sad day for the free media when no one feels free enough to start booing or lobbing over-ripened fruit in response to such a woeful performance. This was no heartfelt tribute. Rather, it was a tragic attempt at parody gone horribly wrong. One in which the minister completely desecrated a song by replacing the original lyrics with some of his own invention. Skyhooks sang about a horror movie appearing on their television with the twist being that the program in question was, in fact, the 6.30 news. This, of course, was back in the days

when news appeared at 6.30 rather than at times so various as to read like a bus schedule. The minister’s lyrics included “no Whyalla wipe-out, there on my TV”. Let me say that replacing the original lyrics to a song to perpetrate some kind of parody is something of a rich tradition. But to effectively parody anything, it’s necessary to pay some level of attention to things like metre and rhyme. This is where Dr Emerson went so tragically wrong. It is clear that Weird Al Yankovic will not be looking over his shoulder any time soon.

But this was not a mere moment of madness, either. Sometimes people blame acts of lunacy on something referred to as a “brain snap”. Strictly speaking, this may not be a medical term. Pink Floyd put it better when they referred to “a momentary lapse of reason”. But no such claim can be made in this instance. For it has since emerged that this act of unparalleled musical butchery was the result of some significant level of consideration. Dr E’s lyrics, it would seem, were prepared in advance. He even went so far as to seek permission from

one of the original members of the band. I can only assume that permission was granted without the benefit of hearing the words. The terrifying thing about that particular revelation is that it suggests that this is about the best we can expect from Dr Emerson. It’s not the first time either. Last month, he performed, in part, the song Living in the 70s while in the parliamentary chamber. What Skyhooks did to deserve this kind of a beating is anybody’s guess. It’s not as though his original performance

went over so well as to demand some kind of encore. It begs the question: what do you do when someone decides to pose a question to you in song form? Harmonise? Produce a Stratocaster and begin soloing? It’s hard to say. Maybe the best response to such a musical travesty would be to refer the minister to a particular song by the singer CeeLo Green. But while the natural response of most people hearing Dr Emerson’s golden throat belch out the lyrics to “Whyalla Wipe-out” would be to fall to the ground on bended knees, hands cupped to their bleeding eardrums and letting lose an anguished cry to the heavens of ‘why, oh Lord, why?’, I much prefer to ask an altogether different question: what’s next? Clearly, the minister has a thing for Skyhooks. Surely the day cannot be too far off when an unsuspecting general public is treated to a rendition of All My Friends are Getting Increased Household Assistance or Carbon Is Not a Dirty Word. But why take such a narrow musical view? I’d like to see Dr Craig trip down through the ages. If parliament can sacrifice an hour to listen to the member for Dobell, it can spare a few minutes to allow him to give his tonsils a proper shake. He could open with a tribute to classic doo-wop masters

Frankie Lymon and the Teenagers with Whyalla Do Fools Fall in Love? From there, he could take things up a notch and serve a steaming heap of classic ’80s indie rock with REM’s It’s the End of the World As We Know It (And I Feel Fine). Moving into the ’90s, Dr Emerson should stay well away from grunge, as “grunge” sounds like the kind of thing he might like to tax. Instead, he should select a tune from the repertoire of another musical doctor – Dr Dre. Nuthin’ But a C Thang or Combet Day (And Everybody’s Celebratin’) are obvious choices. Or, if he doesn’t feel he can bring the rhyme, he could form a band and call himself Craig against the Machine. For something more recent, he could do worse than borrow from Willow Smith and her brain-worm of a tune I Flick My Hair and adjust it to I Flick the Lights On and Off. It was another Minister of the Crown who put it best. Peter Garrett – who as a former professional singer is yet to burst into song about anything – tweeted that Dr Emerson was doing a great job – as a Trade Minister. Even his dancing was horrible. On the day of the big recital, there is one song that demands to be sung: I Started a Joke. www.stuartmccullough.com

A Grain of Salt GAMBLING is a rathole! No point explaining it any other way. Our leaders maintain (tongue in cheek) that they are educating the public, with their cut ever increasing. Up to a point they believe themselves, but no, it’s a disease, people. A gambling addict bets to lose, not win. Never mind the thousands who bet on the pokies as a sense of enjoyment within their financial limits; I’m not referring to them. When the addicts win they bet bigger, to lose. You may think this strange but I’ve seen it, time and time again. The trick is knowing when the lucky run is over, but addicts don’t know, never do, until they lose. We now have Victoria’s Responsible Gambling Foundation replacing Brumby’s Responsible Gambling Advocacy Centre? Rank hypocrisy. It’s a cash cow. Sport, the works, whatever. Give James Packer more casinos? Why not! Sick. *** THE earthquake of 5.4 magnitude was a worry. “Did the earth move for you?” was, of course, the opening line from most people I met the following day. It never did but it would have been interesting to be halfway through hanky panky when it hit. A normal male (with his normal half a brain) would have taken the credit. The roar followed by the fascination of seeing the walls shake like jelly for a microsecond. I went to bed, sooky. *** LET me get this straight: Carlton’s Brock McLean was fined $5000 with a suspended one-game ban for an AIDS reference tweet in reply to a critical fan tweet, but Ben Cousins was fined

$800 on a methamphetamine drug charge? Also, Brock must undergo compulsory counselling. What is the world coming to? Socrates, supposedly the founder of Western philosophy in 400BC, is said to have searched Europe for a wise man and concluded all men were fools; including himself one assumes as he was reported to be a heavy drinker, quarrelsome, a pedant, commended poverty and was unable to moderate his affections. So what’s my point? None. Consistency is my middle name. *** DAME Julia’s grilling by the press at the conclusion of the G20 Summit in Mexico was good, helped by a healthy economy and favourable unemployment figures in comparison with most other countries. Will this help her at the next election? Not likely as no one will be listening. It boils down to trust. But do we trust Tony if we don’t trust Julia? Tony says he will scrap the carbon tax. Does this mean (assuming a core promise) prices will go down? Never. Julia then travelled to Rio to talk of sustainable development. Merry-go-round. *** I DROPPED in to the first of 15 Plan Peninsula Conversations at Rye where the shire is asking residents about the future look, feel and role of the peninsula. Got a showbag with a soup container and pen; there was plenty of soup and sandwiches on tap. The big chief Michael Kennedy (no bow tie) was in attendance as well as Rye councillor Bill Goodrem. No talk of

the usual suspects – traffic, tip fees, holiday house rubbish, louts, pot holes and taxis; it was all about sustainable, green stuff. Whether results will follow this fine idea remains to be seen but in the meantime log on to www. mornpen.vic.gov.au and have your say, or go along to one of the “conversations” for your free showbag and tucker. *** TO all you lovely people who gave John Brumby the boot, including some of my friends and others particularly in the Frankston area, are you happy with your choice? True, honest Geoff Shaw’s doing very well for himself and Ted has axed 3615 jobs, but, hey, a surplus is what it’s all about, right? And who cares about a few TAFE courses and half a dozen non-core promises. Still, credit where it’s due: Ted will keep his promise to present the all-night White Night Melbourne Festival. What’s that? No idea, but it sounds nice. *** JULIAN Assange in Ecuador? Those Yanks are a worry. No doubt Julian is aware of Julia and Swanny’s promise of support “for all Australians”, otherwise known as hot air. He and we remember the wonderful support our government gave to David Hicks in Guantanamo. Never mind the Double Dutch, Julia; you are on notice to put Julian out of reach of the USA, a forlorn hope I suspect. Then again Julian did expose big secrets, none of

Rampaging Rye stops Red Hill, Blues and Crib shine NEPEAN DIVISION By Toe Punt RYE proved it had the artillery to match it with the best sides in the business after smashing second place Red Hill to the tune of 100-plus points on Saturday. Billed as the MPNFL Nepean Division match of the day, the game did not live up to expectations, reaching only one exciting stage in terms of the contest. This came in the third quarter when Red Hill kicked consecutive goals to get within 16 points. Rye kicked the next 10 goals of the quarter to stretch a three-goal break into an 88-point lead at three-quarter time. The Hillmen were insipid. Red Hill coach Gary Colling said at three-quarter time that it hadn’t been a good day for his charges. “Things haven’t gone well for us today but that’s footy. Sometimes you have those days,” Colling said. “It’s important we play the game out and take some positives away from the match.” The Hillmen folded like a deck of cards when the going got tough and at times it appeared to be a game between men and boys. Red Hill had five under-18s in the team, although considering the lead-in form of Jarryd Douglas and Josh Mold, this could hardly be used as an excuse. If there’s one thing coaches have been consistent with this season, it is not using youth as a lack of effort. Regardless of age, there can still be effort. Red Hill went into the game without Daniel McNamara, Luke Adams and Sean Holmes, all missing from the side that beat Frankston Bombers the week

before. These three would have made significant difference, but one questions how much. Rye played some of the best football Nepean Division has seen this season and it was instigated by three players. Rhett Sutton dominated in the ruck. His tap work was sensational and he was all over the ground, helping the defenders and finishing with two goals. Adam Kirkwood was the best player on the ground. He gathered more than 30 possessions, most of them coming in dangerous positions through the middle. His centre clearance work was dominant. Justin Van Unen was another who was simply magical. He finished with 10 goals, giving him 85 for the season. He brought the house down when he gathered a loose ball, looked directly at the social rooms with the goals behind him, and kicked it over his head and through the middle. Darren Booth continued his outstanding season across half-back and Ben Holmes recaptured his dominant form, especially in the second half, booting four goals. The Demons are a more formidable proposition with Holmes, Andrew Dean, Aaron Fiddes and Van Unen in the forward line. When Lyle House returns, probably this week, it will free Sutton to play a key role in the back line with occasional forays in attack. I’d like to see the ruckmen resting deep forward. There wasn’t a lot to crow about for the Hillmen, although Ryan Blake, Joe Kreiger and Andrew Gilmour worked tirelessly. Skipper Holmes said after the match that it was “embarrassing”. “We didn’t handle the pressure of the

The last kick hero LIFE – and sport – is all about timing. Sometimes you miss the train, the bus, the ball, the wave and sometimes you arrive with exquisite timing. The Hastings versus Devon Meadows under-18s game on the weekend was a case in point. It was the first time the two teams met as the Panthers joined the MPNFL this year. The Blues were sitting eighth on the ladder with four wins and six losses. Devon Meadows was in fourth with six wins and three defeats. Hastings had to win to stay in the race for a top five spot. Enter Steven Robb. With just minutes left and scores level, Robb was on the bench with an injured hand. Robb pleads with his coach Scott Williams to put him back on the ground. He tells his coach: “I want to help my teammates; I want to win the game.” Williams looks at Robb. The young man is a third-year under-18 player; a great talent. He takes a punt and puts the kid back on the ground. Devon is now in front by three points. There is just 60 seconds, perhaps, remaining in the final quarter. Robb enters the ground on the wing, the ball is kicked in, heads out to Devon’s forward 50 line and is marked by Hastings. Robb calls for it and the ball kicked to his position on the wing, but it is a contest (time 11.50.22) and the ball spills to the advantage of Hastings, bounces and is gathered beyond the centre square by Ben Schroen (11.50.25). Schroen is blocked by a Devon defender and loops a handball over the top in an attempt to hit full-forward Kyron Pratt; it falls short, bounces and players from both sides dive on the ball. It is desperate times as the players do not know how much time is left. Ball-up (11.50.42). The ball hits the ground, again players from both sides dive on it; ball not going anywhere. Ball-up (11.50.54). As an onballer, Robb has made his way into the forward line and stands outside the pack. Ball goes up, Nathan Goodacre rucks the ball for Hastings, ball comes out to Robb, two steps, 12 metres out from goals, 10 metres wide of the point post, ball onto the left boot (11.50.56). There is tension all over the ground, everyone follows the ball towards the goal – it’s a goal! Robb has slotted the ball through from a tight angle, Hastings players in the forward line erupt with elation and run toward Robb, siren sounds (11.51.01). Hastings has won by three points. A great game of footy. Hastings still in the race for a top five spot. Words and picture: Andrew Hurst

match very well and there was a lot of fumbling today also,” he said. “I didn’t think we adapted to the ground very well either, going very wide. “Rye was exception and when they got the run on in the third, I don’t think anyone was going to stop them.” Due to the closeness of the competition, Red Hill has fallen from being two points clear in second place to being two points out of the five in sixth place. Rye has gone to third. Dromana has gone to second place on the table after a demolition of Somerville, winning by a whopping 174 points. The Tigers had 50 scoring shots to just 11, booting 15 goals in the first half and 14 in the second. A dozen players hit the scoreboard for the Tigers, Jay Hutchison booting five, Steven Gaertner four and Paul Minchington and Rikki Johnston three each. Johnston was sensational for the Tigers, almost unopposed all afternoon, while Scott Joyce and Adam Hunter also did as they pleased. Gaertner was also a dominant force. The Eagles booted just one goal in each half. Caleb Cox and Justin Allsop worked hard all afternoon through the middle and in defence and Justin Farrelly tried hard in the ruck. Frankston Bombers trailed Tyabb at half-time but managed to boot 13 goals to one in the second hour to record a 67-point win. Brad Wakeling booted five goals and Jake Foster and Matty Meagher three each for the Bombers, while the big news was the return and good form of Jason Clapp. Clapp is a very important player and

with Brian O’Carroll, Ben Drake, Nathan Martin, Dean Wagner, there is still some upside to this Bombers team. Haydn Moore and Nathan Lonie have been among Frankston’s best all season and their good form continued on Saturday, while youngsters Matt Offer and Jay Page were very important players. Young Justin Rowley was fantastic for the Yabbies, while brothers Ethan and Simon Rahilly, along with Scott Pickersgill, also worked hard all afternoon. Hastings achieved something it hasn’t been able to do very often this season – win two games on the trot. The Blues took on the dangerous but inconsistent Devon Meadows at the Panther pit on Saturday and by halftime the game was over. The Blues booted nine goals to four in the first half and the final margin was 41 points. Colin McVeigh made it 10 in two games with four majors, while Dylan Hand and Adam Jago finished with three goals each. Andy Kiely, despite nursing five stitches in his fingers, was again in great form again and Grant Masterson played one of his best games for the club in the past two seasons. Paul Rogasch continues to be a force across half-back. Ash Adams booted three for the Panthers, while Brett Armitage, Brandon Wapshot and Alex Doria collected the key votes. Crib Point booted six goals to five behinds in the first quarter against Pearcedale and that was the end of the game. The Dales were able to go toe to toe with the Magpies after the first change,

booting 10 goals to 11, but the damage had been done. Brad Davidson booted four and Luke Herrington and Jon Flack three each for the Magpies, while James Cook and Dean Kairies dominated. Pad Cadd booted seven for the Dales, while Chris Fortnam and Damien McCormack also shone. Rosebud went within a kick of defeating reigning premier Sorrento, beaten by the siren in a thriller at Olympic Park in Rosebud. Sorrento started well and when they were 13 points up at half-time, it appeared as though they were going to pull the trigger at any stage. However, the Buds stuck to the task with Brenton Payne (two goals) and Rhys Bancroft playing well through the middle and Matt Baker providing a target in attack. By three-quarter time, the Buds had cut the margin to seven points. Sorrento peppered the goals in the last quarter for behinds as the only return while the Buds booted two goals straight. It was the first time in memory that Sorrento had been kept to under 10 goals. Troy Schwarze was probably the difference between the sides. His leadership and willingness to win were outstanding, while Daniel Grant and Leigh Treeby through the middle were also influential. Lachy Armstrong played his best game of the year for the Buds with three goals and Chris Rogers and Nick Boswell continued their outstanding touch in the back line.

Stonecats rope Bulls, Dogs noble in defeat PENINSULA DIVISION

By Toe Punt FRANKSTON YCW maintained its psychological advantage over Karingal with a solid 16-point victory in the MPNFL Peninsula Division match of the day. In one of three Peninsula Division games played on Saturday, the Bulls started well and led by four points at quarter time. However, the Stonecats, through the likes of Anthony Barry in the back line and Ash Eames in the ruck, were able to hit back in the second quarter and regain the ascendancy by half-time. When games become a dog fight against YCW, very rarely does the opposition win. The Stonecats’ game is built around defence and they make scoring extremely tough. Karingal has been a high-scoring side this season, but on Saturday was restricted to just nine goals. Chris Hay booted four of them, but there wasn’t another Bull who kicked multiple goals. The Stonecats had a couple of key targets with Ricky Morris bobbing up and finishing with four majors, while Michael Chaplin was among the goals for the first time in a while with three majors. Ben Tellis was at his mercurial best through the middle for the winners and

Brad Ulms gave the Stonecats fans something to cheer about, such was his good form. Kevin Lylak is one of a handful of underrated players at YCW, but his performance was solid. Karingal certainly wasn’t disgraced and once again it needs to go back to the drawing board and figure out how it can score against this side. Given the St Kilda connection, it would pay to take a video of the game and get the powers that be at St Kilda to take a look at things. Justin Peckett led the charge once again for the Bull and, despite his tender age, is in some of the best form of his local footy career. David Hirst and Steve Charalambous continue to shine, and James Tyquin has been the pick of the Bulls’ recruits this season. Frankston YCW opened the game up in the third quarter, booting three goals to one and when the Stonecats get their noses in front, they are very hard to stop. Bonbeach is well and truly in the finals race after holding on to defeat Seaford in a one-point thriller. Shane McDonald and Mark Tyrell booted three goals each for the Sharks as they led at every change to record a 16.11 to 15.16 victory. Shaun Foster and Patty Liston were outstanding for the Sharks while Tommy Payton continues to show maturity beyond his years.

The Sharks were dominant in the opening half. The visitors booted six goals to three in the opening quarter and were aided by accuracy early on. In fact, it proved to be the difference between winning and losing. The second quarter was a shoot-out with 9.8 kicked for the term. Bonbeach was still doing the better and led by 21 points at the major change. Justin Norton and McDonald were on top of their games, and Nathan Hicks and Blake Matthews were sniffing around the goals. Seaford needed a lift and it came in the form of Chris Irving, Keiran Shaw and Aaron Turner in the third term and the Seaford Rd oval came alight. The Tigers booted 6.7 to 3.1 and changed the momentum of the game. Had they kicked accurately, the Tigers would have led by three goals at threequarter time, not three points. The final term was an arm wrestle, the Sharks peppering the goals for a return of 2.6, while Seaford kicked 2.2. Bonbeach is now equal on points with Seaford but is still out of the five on percentage. Langwarrin had to pull out all stops in the final quarter to get the job done against Pines. In a see-sawing battle all afternoon, Langwarrin’s inaccuracy almost cost them the match. The home side had an additional nine scoring shots, but managed to record

just a nine-point victory. In the last quarter, it appeared the Pythons were going to cause a boilover, leading by 20 points with 15 minutes to play, but the young Kangas hit back. Exciting youngsters Aaron Shaw and Dale Eames finished with six between them, while Jonathan Hay kicked two goals playing as a key forward. Former Hawthorn player and Sandringham-listed Beau Muston was the difference between the sides in the last quarter, taking some telling marks and kicking two goals. Mark McGill and Jarryd Amalfi continue to prove they are the future of this footy club as leaders, while Mitch Gill-Furness and Andrew Borrie also continued their fine form. For Pines, Guy Hendry, who has played predominantly as a key defender since making his senior debut, has proven in recent times that he has the ability to become a power forward. He finished with five goals on Saturday. Brendan Neville kicked three and skipper Jimmy Messina two, while Beau Hendry again had an outstanding game in the ruck and is proving that he can excel in the position. Chris Guganovic was at his best for the Pythons, too, and Joel Brunn has been an exceptional player for Pines this season. Shaun Stewart added some footage to his highlight reel with his performance. In the Sunday games, Mornington

was superb against Mt Eliza, despite going down by almost 100 points. The Doggies were incredibly undermanned, missing 14 of their best 22 players. Two of its best pulled out on the morning of the game. Mt Eliza welcomed back Michael Lowry from Sandringham and was at full strength. Lourey booted four goals, while Scott Lockwood and Sam Lloyd booted five each. Sam Gill was sensational in defence, and Scott Simpson dominated in the ruck and around the ground. Mornington had a real crack and coach Josh Beard would have been rapt with his team’s effort. Byron Holt and Jackson Calder battled in the ruck, Scott Matthews and Josh McLerie continually put their head over the footy, Tim Johnston lacks nothing in the ticker department and Chris Paxino led his charges from the front. Chelsea staged a great last-quarter comeback to get the valuable points over Edithvale-Aspendale. The Gulls trailed for the majority of the afternoon before Sam Carpenter and Fabian Deluca led a revival that saw the Gulls boot five goals to one in the last to win by 14 points. Timmy Mannix and Nick Connellan were fantastic for the Eagles.

Saints to the rescue

Footy’s woman of the year ROSEBUD Football Club stalwart Pam Nicholls (pictured) has been rewarded for 30 years of service to peninsula footy by being named MPNFL Woman of the Year. She served on the committee of the Rosebud Junior Football Club 1982-90 and was awarded life membership of the club in 1990. Pam then joined the committee of Rosebud Football Club in 1991 and has been treasurer since 2001. She was awarded life membership of the senior club in 2007. In addition to being treasurer of the senior club, Pam has given significant time to a range of roles at the club including but not limited to managing and working in the canteen, coordinating and running social functions, fundraisers and sponsor days, seeking sponsorship for the club, being a key member of Mornington Peninsula Shire’s committee for the Australia Day Fun Run, which provides a financial benefit to the club, and supporting her husband Rob who has been president for several years in separate stints. More recently, Pam was instrumental in securing the approval by the shire and funding through a range of sources for the development of netball courts at Olympic Park, Rosebud Football Club’s home base.

THREE St Kilda Football Club assistant coaches helping MPNFL teams on Saturday. Justin Peckett was running around with Karingal, Troy Schwarze is still officially listed as a co-coach of Sorrento, and former Rye great Greg Doyle was managing rotations for the Demons. Doyle has been at his old club helping in this area and it paid dividends on Saturday as Rye was full of run in the final quarter. Doyle looks after the midfield at St Kilda.

Under watch SOUTHERN Umpires Association boss Peter Marshall conceded on the RPP Footy Show on Saturday morning that he has warned his umpires to keep an eye out for any behind-the-play or rough play incidents on the run home to the finals. Marshall said it was important his umpires to be aware that there were a number of sides across all divisions that were no longer a chance to play finals. “What we tend to find at this stage of the season is the lower sides play manon-man footy and employ some tactics that are not necessarily in the spirit of the game,” Marshall said. “It is important that we are aware of that as an umpiring group and ensure nothing gets out of hand.”

Bloodied Bulls KARINGAL captain Luke Van Raay stormed into the umpires’ rooms at halftime two weeks ago against EdithvaleAspendale to show the men in yellow the blood streaming from his face. Van Raay got into a scuffle with the Eagles’ Jordan Derbyshire and a clash of heads resulted in Van Raay needing a spell in hospital. It is understood Van Raay was reported for the incident, but the tribunal hearing was held over this week. The Van Raay versus Derbyshire incident was one of many “spot fires” in the Karingal v Edi-Asp game.

WESTERN PORT scoreboard

Westernport Warriors outgun Cerberus By Andrew Brady THE Westernport Warriors had too much firepower for the navy boys from Cerberus on Wednesday and for only the second time in eight years grabbed the Nick Lehmann Cup after a magnificent 13.785 to 6.4-40 victory. The Warriors defeated Cerberus in 2009 but this win had many Warriors faithful claiming this was the greatest victory ever by the team. The Nick Lehmann Cup will take pride of place in the Warriors trophy cabinet at Westpac Hastings. The Warriors went into the game without star veteran Chris “Head” Bastin who for the second time this season slept through his alarm. The Warriors received a huge lift before the game when a much finer Vio “The Man” Vunimasi arrived at the ground declaring his plans to finish the season with the mighty Warriors and assist in their aim of achieving the ultimate glory of winning the A grade premiership. The Warriors set themselves achievable short-term goals going in to the game against Cerberus and goal one was to be still in the contest at the first change. Travis “Ditch” Dyke dominated in the ruck from the out-

set and, in combination with The Man and Jake “Lleyton” Hewitt, it wasn’t long before cracks began to appear in the Cerberus defence. If there is one player in the RecLink competition who can

capitalise in these situations, it is the mighty Warriors’ highest profile player, Tim “Buddy” Churchin. Out of respect for his demoralised opponents, Buddy saluted after each of his eight breathtaking goals and has tak-

en his tally to 66 for the season, an amazing effort. The game wasn’t just about Buddy though; it was about a group of determined young men wearing the Warriors colours who had a genuine desire

to win back the Nick Lehmann Cup. The Warriors held a narrow lead at quarter time but perfected a dry weather game in heavy conditions and went on to increase their lead each quarter

to record a resounding victory. Matty “Fullof” Hope returned to his beloved Warriors and dominated on his wing; the famous Robb brothers Joey, Steve and Kyle made significant contributions; and James “Crown” Cascini started to find some touch around the packs. In the back line, Jordan “Hungry” Hendrix and Nathan “Missus” Robertson were able to hold firm when there was adversity and the general, Chris “Posters” Helweg, despite a few worrying signs, was able to assert his influence on the game. This was a complete team effort and one that all associated with the Warriors can be enormously proud of. Cerberus was gracious in defeat and full credit must go to their group for putting on a great day. Congratulations to Nick’s daughter Charlee who did a wonderful job in presenting the cup to the successful Warriors. After the game we had a team dinner at Mia Famiglia in Hastings, which capped off a wonderful day in the history of the mighty Warriors. The next game is at Crib Point on 25 July versus neighbours the Southern Peninsula Swans with the game starting at midday.
