Here is The News: Graeme Althaus is back in the delivery game around Hastings thanks to donors who paid for his new electronic scooter. Picture: Yanni

Graeme’s back at work By Keith Platt THE good, the bad and the downright depressing – Graeme Althaus has had the lot in the past month. Two weeks ago news came through of the death of the granddaughter he had never seen. Three-month-old Harmony died in Brisbane of meningococcal disease. Although her death brought great sadness to Mr Althaus, it has brought him closer to his daughter Jamie-Lee, who now phones once or twice a week. Plagued by an ageing electric scoot-

er, he had managed to stay committed to his delivery rounds, including that of the Western Port News. A painter for 27 years, Mr Althaus lost a leg and use of one arm after “a massive stroke” but was determined to make a living. The stroke came two days after he moved to Melbourne from Darwin for a guaranteed two-year painting contract. Picking up his life, Mr Althaus started delivering newspapers and pamphlets in Hastings, but recently his ail-

ing scooter frequently broke down or had a puncture. A replacement was way beyond his means before hope came with a donation from Ben Tallon Real Estate and a price reduction from supplier Western Port Mobility. Although Mr Althaus had been given the use of his new scooter, he was wondering how to pay the remaining $2500 and make ends meet. After his plight ran in The News (‘Mobile Graeme is looking for work’, 22/5/12), two donors went to see Ray

Percival of Western Port Mobility and paid off the remaining debt. “One gave $300 and the other $2200 and both wanted to remain anonymous,” Mr Percival said. “The one who gave the larger amount said he was from Mornington. He walked in and said ‘I’ve got it, he needs it, and now he’s got it’. “Everybody has dipped in. The scooter was a Pride 139XL and we dropped it by $500, Tallon gave $1000 and the two donors paid the rest. “Punctures should be a thing of the

past; this one comes with solid tyres, can do 12 kilometres an hour and should run all day without recharge.” “It was great news,” Mr Althaus said on Monday. “I cried when Ray Percival called. “It showed there are good people in this world.” After the death of Harmony, Mr Althaus took himself off the road, but this week is ready again to start deliveries. Seemingly unaware or affected by the dismal weather, his first job was delivering pamphlets for a coffee shop.

‘Off duty’ eyecatcher CHARTER boat skipper Chris Vasilevski was the toast of the state’s fishers last week after landing a 122-kilogram tuna off Portland. Vasilevski – who operates Gone Fishing Charters out of Queenscliff, Portsea and Portland – was “off duty” and fishing with mates when he hooked, reeled in and landed the big fish about 12 kilometres of Portland last Tuesday. Fishers report schools of southern bluefin tuna are swimming unusually close to the shore along their migratory path this season. Tuna numbers have been high for about six years in the waters of southern Australia with many Western Port and Port Phillip anglers making the trek west seeking monster tuna. Southern bluefin tuna (SBT) is known as the “Porsche of the sea” because it can reach speeds of up to 70km/h and travel vast distances. At high speeds, the side fins retract into special grooves and the eyes form a smooth surface with the rest of the head in one of the most hydrodynamically advanced bodies in the sea. They can grow up to two metres long and weigh up to 200 kilograms. Northern bluefin tuna can grow to 700kg. The world tuna record was a 678kg northern bluefin tuna caught off the coast of Nova Scotia in Canada in 1979. SBT breed in the warm tropical waters of the Indian Ocean, south of Java, and travel down the west coast of Australia where they either turn right to South America or left to Australia and New Zealand. They visit major feeding grounds in

the colder Southern Ocean. The warm Leeuwin Current, which begins near the spawning ground and is strongest in April right after the spawning period, helps sweep the tuna down from the WA coast to the Great Australian Bight and into Victorian waters.

Catch of the season: Charter boat skipper Chris Vasilevski with the 122.7 kilogram tuna he caught off Portland last week.

Three escape house blaze THREE occupants have escaped unharmed from a burning house in the Kinfauns Estate in Bittern. The house on Lady Nelson Parkway was well alight when firefighters arrived at 9am on Wednesday 30 May. A woman who fled the house stood barefoot in her pajamas in the drizzling rain watching as teams of firemen decided the best way of entering the house to try and suppress the fire burning through the roof. Spectators stood on the nature strip of the street as firefighters donned breathing apparatus to tackle the blaze. Officers from the CFA fire investigation unit are looking into the cause of the fire, which destroyed the house. Captain Peter Buur of Bittern CFA said fire alarms woke the three people inside the large house. The fire was attended by units from Hastings, Bittern, Crib Point, Moorooduc, Tyabb and Frankston.

THE differences of opinion surround the drinking and appreciating of wine were highlighted again last week when judges at the International Cool Climate Wine Show gave the thumbs up to a New Zealand drop, but drinkers went for the Adelaide Hills. The only Mornington Peninsula entries to win major accolades this year were the 2007 chardonnay from Wynnton Estate in Shoreham and Baillieu Vineyard of Merricks North’s 2009 shiraz. Wynnton won the Best Mornington Peninsula White and Baillieu the Best Mornington Peninsula Red. Chairman of judges Mike DeGaris said peninsula wines had “given good results” over the past two years and he looked forward to seeing more entries next year. The trophy for best wine of the show went to a New Zealand winery, Matua Valley, for its 2010 shiraz while the People’s Choice Award went to Stable Hill of the Adelaide Hills for its 2010 shiraz. About 20 per cent of the 645 entries in the show each came from the peninsula, New Zealand or Tasmania. A panel of 15 judges at the Mornington Racecourse venue handed out 26 gold medals, 58

silver and 238 bronze. Half the entries received medals. Trophies went to: Best Wine of the Show, Matua Valley shiraz 2010, New Zealand; People’s Choice Award, Adelaide Hills Stable Hills shiraz 2010; Best Red Wine of the Show, Matua Valley shiraz 2010; Best White Wine of the Show, Barwang chardonnay 2011, a McWilliam’s Wine Group brand near Young in NSW; Best Pinot Noir 2011, Sharmans, Tasmania; Best Pinot Noir 2010, Babich Winemaker’s Reserve, New Zealand; Best Pinot Noir 2009, New Zealand Rapaura Springs Vineyard Reserve Central Otago Pinot Noir, New Zealand; Best Riesling, Forrest, The Doctors’ Riesling 2011, New Zealand; Best Chardonnay, Barwang chardonnay 2011; Best Pinot Gris, Tasmanian Estates – Tamar Ridge 2011; Best Sauvignon Blanc, Babich, Black Label 2011; Best Mornington Peninsula White, Wynnton Ridge chardonnay 2007; Best Mornington Peninsula Red, Baillieu shiraz 2009; Best Sparkling Wine, Tasmanian Estates – Pirie non vintage 2011; Judges Best New Release, Barwang chardonnay 2011; Judges Best Vintage Wine, Matua Valley shiraz 2010; Best Cool Climate Shiraz, Matua Valley shiraz 2010.

Dale throws his weight around for Australia By Keith Platt DALE Stevenson knows he’s in for a strenuous time. As a shot putter nominated for the Australian Olympic team he will spend the next few weeks in serious training for the main event in England. Stevenson, 24 and raised at Moorooduc, is just back from the United States where he threw an Olympic qualifying 20.63 metres. The qualifying distance for the 2008 Beijing Olympics was 20.3 metres. The event was won by Poland’s Tomasz Majewski with a throw of 21.51 metres. Stevenson says the shot put is an energy-sapping exercise that requires daily training to maintain strength and flexibility. Part of his training regime this year was competing in the US, which has a larger competitive shot put base than Australia and an athletics season that follows straight on from Australia’s summer. In the US Stevenson was competing against and training with some of that country’s top performers who will also be in the Olympics. “The Americans are always a powerhouse in the event,� he says of the athletes he counts among his friends. “Some of my US training partners are the best in the world. “I’ve got to know them pretty well – it’s a relatively small group. “The Americans are pretty hospitable and when I’m there we all socialise. It’s a nice relationship.� Just as Stevenson went to the US to continue competing and hoping to

qualify for the Olympics, his American opponents had been out here for the Australian summer. But when it comes to England in July, friendship will take a back seat to competition as the training partners take to the world stage throwing 7.26-kilogram (16-pound) steel balls. Stevenson threw 20.63 in South Carolina and hopes to better that distance in the London Olympics shot put that starts on 3 August. In the lead-up to that event, Steven-

son will train full time in Australia before spending a month in Germany from 27 June before going to the Australian training camp at the Tunbridge Wells sports centre, which is south of London. A training session can involve 30 throws as well as lifting weights in the gym. Of those throws, up to 15 can be “full� throws. Stevenson’s weekly workout involves two gym sessions and four throwing sessions.

He also throws in some meditation and yoga. Off the sports field, Stevenson coaches at schools with Bluearth, an organisation started by businessman and philanthropist Malcolm Freake “to contribute to the health and wellbeing of our nation by encouraging an increased participation in physical activity�. Although shot putting is a singleperson sport, Stevenson will have his own support team on hand during the

Lawmakers want backing to ban backyard fires By Keith Platt BACKYARD burning will be stamped out if Mornington Peninsula Shire councillors get their way. Proposed local laws will see offenders fined $2500 for burning waste in an incinerator or the open air. The ban on backyard burning is spelt out within three local laws being exhibited for public comment by the shire. The local laws cover many activities and parts of daily life, including fines of up to $2500 for misuse of rubbish bins or failing to destroy nests of English or European wasps to $1250 for not picking up dog poo or making audio or video recordings of council committee meetings. A $2500 penalty will apply if the occupier of a property does not “immediately notify the council in writing if his or her approved garbage bin develops a defect, is destroyed or damaged, or is lost or stolen”. The new local laws roll the existing six into three and, according to governance team leader Mark Howells, are written in more easily understood “plain English”. He said they represent a fresh approach and are the result of “the first comprehensive review and re-write of the local laws since 1995”. However, they also bring attention to the many laws that council can use to control actions of the public. Bans on drinking in public places, for instance, mean families can be fined for enjoying a late afternoon summer wine or beer on some of the shire’s most popular beaches. Carrying an open stubby of beer while walking the dog would also attract a fine. Councillors have been assured this would not happen, but some believe the law should either be enforced or not exist.

The proposed ban on backyard or open-air burning has been previously discussed, and subsequently abandoned, by the shire. Incinerators and open fires are at present only allowed at restricted times on Fridays and Saturdays. Cr Tim Rodgers says the time has come for them to be banned altogether in residential areas. If adopted, the new laws would mean that incinerators and open fires can only be lit by owners of large properties. Those on properties of less than 2000 square metres must find some other way of disposing of grass, leaves and branches. The shire charges a fee for its green waste collection service and supplies three “free” tip tickets with rate notices. Owners of properties between 2000 and 40,000 square metres can have fires 10am to 3pm on Fridays or Saturdays providing they are more than 50 metres away from any neighbouring house. Landholdings above 40,000 square metres are allowed to have fires provided they are not within 500 metres of a neighbouring dwelling. Cr Rodgers said banning backyard burning “has been a passion of mine for a number of years”. If the new laws were adopted, the peninsula would “be joining most other shires in the state – we’re one of the few left”. Cr Rodgers said health issues, pollution and amenity were the main reasons for wanting the ban. “Smoke affects asthmatics and the elderly and there’s the obvious environmental impact from smoke and danger of uncontrolled fires.” He said that “ideally” the cost of having green waste collected “won’t be prohibitive”. “The time of having free waste collections is long gone,” Cr Rodgers said.

Upended: Cr Graham Pittock says Mornington Peninsula Shire has gone too far with its drink ban, which means having an open bottle of alcohol on the beach at Hastings, Mornington, Safety Beach or Dromana is against the law. Picture: Keith Platt

Councillor’s fight against booze ban By Keith Platt MORNINGTON Peninsula’s strict alcohol bans are discriminatory, disappointing and contravene human rights, according to former mayor Cr Graham Pittock. He says the shire should dump local laws banning alcohol on beaches, in public places and roads across the peninsula. Cr Pittock believes police already have enough power to arrest of control drunken and offensive behaviour. “Under the local law, people are breaking the law by having a wine or a beer on the beach,” he said. Flouting the law attracts a penalty of $625 for a first offence and $1250 for subsequent offences. Cr Pittock said the unacknowledged “dark side” of council’s local law is that it is aimed solely at young people. “In areas like the beach, young people are the ones most likely to be high spirited, but police are already equipped to deal with those situations. “Council shouldn’t be involved.” While councillors had been reassured that mums and dads drinking on the beach would be overlooked by police, Cr Pittock felt this was discriminating against the young. It seemed strange that the local law would be administered by police and not council’s own rangers. Cr Pittock said the issue also raised questions about whether police would be contravening their own standards by not applying the law when they saw it being openly flouted. “Who has told them to ignore mums and dads? If we’re going to have a blanket ban against drinking, it should be for everyone, not just discriminating against young people. “I don’t even know if police want these powers.”

Cr Pittock believes council wants to get its new local laws in place before it enters “caretaker” mode 32 days before this year’s October municipal elections. But he has warned adopting the new laws does not mean they will be permanent. “I’ll be making people aware of what’s happening during the election campaign, because a review of the local law can be undertaken at any time,” Cr Pittock said. “I believe the laws are discriminating and too discretionary.” Cr Pittock said he would be urging residents to make submissions against the proposed drink bans, which are part of the proposed local laws about to be exhibited for public comment. One of the reasons given for the new local laws is that they are presented in a plainer, easier-tounderstand style. However, rolling the existing six local laws into three also includes more restrictions and penalties, including bans on backyard burning. “This council really has too much power – I don’t think banning drinks is anything to do with us. “There are enough laws already. This is a carryover from the dark days when council thought it had more power than it did.” The proposed local law is no different to the existing one, which bans drinking alcohol in public on Australia Day and New Year’s Eve. Bans across the shire for the rest of the year include car parks at back beaches within Mornington Peninsula National Park as well as commercial centres and Arthurs Seat. Alcohol is banned at beaches in Mornington, Mt Martha, Dromana, Rye, Somers, Hastings, Balnarring Beach and near Portsea pier.

Short shrift for MP’s carbon tax call By Mike Hast FEDERAL MP Greg Hunt wants local councils in his electorate of Flinders to formally express concern about the coming carbon tax. But his call, made in letters to Mornington Peninsula, Casey, Cardinia and Bass Coast councils, is expected to get short shrift from the peninsula shire. The mayor, Cr Frank Martin, said Mr Hunt’s letter was likely to be discussed on Monday at briefings, but “we’re not into political statements”. Cr Martin said he was “not into the political side of things and I’m sure most other councillors aren’t either”. The mayor said the shire’s proposed

rate rise of 3.9 per cent and the $10 increase in the municipal charge “includes the carbon tax”. “We might write a letter back to Mr Hunt,” Cr Martin said. Mr Hunt, the Opposition’s spokesman on climate change, has asked the four councils to “move a motion expressing concern about the cost impact of the carbon tax” and urged councils to hold a public forum to make residents aware of increased charges as a result of the tax. “One of the negative impacts of the tax will be additional costs paid by local governments in Australia,” he wrote. “The total cost on local govern-

ment nationwide, excluding the cost of landfill operations, is expected to be a minimum of $185 million. This is an additional cost on local government, without any form of reimbursement. “Of particular concern, are the costs that councils will incur directly or indirectly on the landfill operations councils run or use. “Landfill costs for councils are so significant that the Clean Energy Regulator has warned that more than 100 councils could end up in the federal government’s biggest polluters list.” But the shire council’s landfill at Rye is exempt from the carbon tax as it is too small. Only landfills that generate

more than 25,000 tonnes of greenhouse gases a year will have to pay the tax from mid-2013 – 12 months after the carbon price regime starts on 1 July. The News sent questions to Mr Hunt to seek clarification of his claims, asking what the tax would cost the shire and if the Rye landfill would incur direct or indirect costs due to the tax. Mr Hunt’s media adviser, Tina McGuffie, said “we don’t know the total cost to Mornington Peninsula Shire; only they can answer that”. “That’s partly the reason why Greg wrote to the shire, to encourage it to look at making public the details of its own calculations as to what impact the

carbon tax will have on its operations.” Ms McGuffie said Casey Council had “already done the calculations, and it’s a total of $2.3 million, with $1.1 million in the general rates and $1.2 million additional in the waste services charge”. Casey’s budget is $270 million. In contrast, Melbourne’s Lord Mayor Robert Doyle told ABC radio earlier this month his council was allocating $1.9 million for carbon tax in its almost $500 million budget. The federal government’s climate change department says the impact of the tax on an average household’s waste will from 13 to 47 cents a week.

Good garden The entrance to Hastings Westpark Primary School is

looking a picture thanks to the school’s gardening group. The group is part of Westpark’s “Living Skill” program, which includes cooking and bike education. Principal Mark Watters said Living Skill was run with support of Hastings & District Community Bank Branch of Bendigo Bank and the Inner Wheel Club of Mornington Peninsula. “These are important programs for students as they engage them in their education,” Mr Watters said. “The students take great pride with their involvement and take what they have learnt back to the classroom through planning, designing, budgeting and report writing.” He said the group had designed, selected plants and constructed the front gardens of the school.

New roundabout to bookend High Street WORK will start next week on a roundabout on the corner of Queen and High streets in Hastings. The contract has been awarded to Maw Civil Pty Ltd and the work is expected to take until the end of August, weather permitting. “Recent commercial developments and the urban growth of Hastings have generated higher turning movements at this intersection that has resulted in vehicle congestion and collisions,”

the shire’s senior civil designer Darren Simnett said. “[The roundabout] will significantly improve traffic flow, improve road safety and provide safe locations for pedestrian crossing facilities.” While access to abutting properties and adjoining roads will be maintained during the construction period, residents have been encouraged to seek an alternative route during the work.

Eye on the ball

It was quarter time at the footy on Saturday and as the two Nepean League teams Tyabb and Pearcedale went to their respective huddles on the field, a family of devout Dales’ supporters also went on to the ground to play a bit of kick to kick. No sooner had their well-worn footy been kicked on to the ground than their equally well-worn pet chased after it. With unyielding enthusiasm typical of the family dog, the footy didn’t stand a chance and was rarely away from the K9’s canines. Picture: Yanni

Budget to hurt less affluent: lobby group By Mike Hast PROPERTY owners in some of the Mornington Peninsula Shire’s least affluent towns will pay the highest increase in rates, says Alan Nelsen of a ratepayers’ lobby group. The council on Monday last week approved the draft budget for 2012-13 with a proposed rate increase of 3.9 per cent. But Dr Nelsen, president of Mornington Peninsula Ratepayers’ and Residents’ Association, says rates in Rosebud and Rosebud West have increased by a total of 35 per cent in the past three years, including the proposed jump for 2012-13. “Rates in Sorrento and Portsea have only increased by 10-17 per cent. This is because housing values have increased more in the bottom end of the market than the top end, which is a reflection of the financial crisis hitting the top end of the market and not the bottom end,” he said. Dr Nelsen, who holds a Doctorate in Human and Organisational Systems and was involved in financing of private-public partnerships before retirement, has analysed the new budget and says the actual increase in revenue from rates (that is, the additional extra cash in the bucket for 201213) is 5.63 per cent not 3.9 per cent. “It’s an increase from $99 million in 2011-12 to $104.5 million in 2012-13,” he said. “The difference between 5.63 per cent and 3.9 per cent is that the new properties coming on line in 2011-12 generate additional rate revenue and the $10 increase in the municipal charge (the fixed part of the rate increase) is not included in the 3.9 per cent.” He said the 3.9 per cent increase should be seen in light of the predicted 2.75 per cent CPI increase for 2012-13 in the Victorian government’s budget. “This year is a property revaluation year. Although properties increase in value the council reduces the rate in the dollar so that the additional amount received from rates for 2012-13 is 5.63 per cent (or 3.9 per cent plus the $10 municipal charge if you use the council’s figure),” he said. “However because it is a rate revaluation year, properties in different areas the change value by different amounts.

“This means that ratepayers in areas where the value has increased more than others will pay a higher share of the increase. “It is interesting to note that generally the more expensive properties have not increased as much as the lower-valued properties. “So lower socio-economic areas are bearing the greater rate increase burden. “This has been accentuated by the increase in the municipal charge over the past three years. “People with multi-million dollar properties pay the same increase as those with cheaper houses. This is despite the mayor, Cr Frank Martin, saying that council is “very conscious of the current economic circumstances”. “The mayor acknowledges that “council is very conscious of the current economical circumstances” yet those in the poorest communities are the hardest hit.” Dr Nelsen said capital and priority works and services were being reduced from $43 million in 2011-12 to $31 million for each of the next two years (2012-13 and 2013-14) then increased to $37 million for the following two years. “The cut is due to the reduction in capital expenditure from $42 million to $24 million, which includes a reduction in expenditure in roads from $21.5 million to $11.2 million, and a $2 million reduction in drainage and $2 million in expenditure on building,” he said. “The council intends to borrow a further $1 million for capital works, but also intends to reduce debt by $4.3 million despite the additional borrowing. “Ten years ago the council’s aim was to be debt-free, but in the ensuing years the debt grew to $42 million “Council’s debt is currently $37.9 million and after paying off $4.3 million will be $33.6 million by the end of the 2012-13 year.” He said the shire still had one of the highest levels of debt. “The Pelican Pantry loss for 2011-12 is $319,000. Fortunately the council has leased the Pantry in Hastings to a private operator for a return of about $130,000 which is a turnaround of almost $500,000.”

Fromelles crusader visits Hastings By Peter McCullough THERE is probably nothing that catches our attention, or gains our respect, more than a lone crusader. Convinced of the worthiness of his cause, he takes on the disbelieving bureaucrats to eventually prove that he was right and that their assumptions were incorrect. Such a person is Lambis Englezos, AM. At a recent lunch, members of Hastings U3A were entertained by Lambis who, in an illustrated address, told how his obsession with the fate of hundreds of Diggers missing since 1916 led to the discovery of the largest military grave in Western Europe in decades. The “grave” consisted of a number of pits that had been dug by the Germans behind their lines to bury enemy soldiers following the previously littleknown Battle of Fromelles. The Battle of Fromelles, 19-20 July 1916, was a brief but heroic action fought when the murderous Battle of the Somme had been raging for almost three weeks. The attack at Fromelles was a feint ordered to stop the Germans sending troops south to reinforce their battered comrades on the Somme, and the Australian 5th Division and the British 61st Division were selected for the attack. The action was poorly planned, slapdash in its execution and the outcome was horrendous. In 14 hours of bitter fighting the 5th Division lost 5533 men killed, wounded or missing, and ceased to function as a fighting force. It was the worst 14 hours in Australian military history with the losses exceeding our combined losses in the Boer War, Korea, Vietnam, Iraq and Afghanistan. The Australians had to cross more

than 200 metres of open ground to reach the German line, which was on higher ground (the Sugarloaf salient). A few made it through, only to be cut off, captured or killed as they tried desperately to return to the Allied trenches. From no-man’s land came the haunting cries of the wounded or dying. One young Australian, blinded by his wounds, staggered about in no-man’s land and cried out for several days. His mates called out to him and vainly tried to direct him back to the Australian lines until the Germans

mercifully shot him. Although ordered not to, many Australians crept out to rescue mates. In fact as many as 30 Australian soldiers were killed in the days afterwards trying to retrieve the wounded and the dead. The 5th Division was made up of new recruits with a sprinkling of Gallipoli veterans. Those killed ranged in age from 43 down to private John Gordon who, at 15 years and 10 months, was the youngest recorded Digger to be killed in action. Also killed were five VFL footballers including George

Challis who, only 10 months earlier, helped Carlton win the 1915 premiership at the MCG. On the outskirts of Fromelles is the Australian Memorial Park, which contains the emotive “Cobbers” statue, the work of Melbourne sculptor Peter Corlett. It depicts Sergeant Simon Fraser carrying a wounded comrade to safety. During one of several trips into no-man’s land Fraser heard a weak voice call out “Don’t forget me, cobber”. The expression came to symbolise the bond of mateship that held the

Australians together in those terrible days. Enter Lambis Englezos. With a longstanding interest in military history, the retired Melbourne art teacher developed a special regard for a small group of Fromelles survivors who he met in the 1990s. Ten years ago he started adding up the numbers of the missing and found a discrepancy. Aware of rumours that there was a mass burial site at nearby Pheasant Wood, and learning from the farmer that nothing would grow in a particular part of the field, he obtained aerial photographs from the Imperial War Museum that showed the sudden appearance of burial pits behind the German lines. Painstaking examination of 1336 Red Cross files revealed a letter to the family of a Melbourne man, Second Lieutenant Jack Bawden, suggesting that he could be buried in one of five large British collective graves outside Pheasant Wood. The initial approach to the Australian Army history unit was not well received: they could not believe that the postwar recovery units would have missed mass graves. However in 2006 a German document dated 21 July 1916 was submitted; it ordered the construction of mass graves for 400 “English” soldiers behind Pheasant Wood. This was confirmed by a geophysical survey the following year, and by 2009 a team had started the excavation of skeletal remains and artefacts buried in thick, sticky clay. The end result was that 250 soldiers were found, 203 of whom are thought to be Australian. With the assistance of families who lost relatives at Fromelles, DNA testing has

Discovered at Fromelles: Private Henry Victor Willis BEFORE the excavations could get underway at Pheasant Wood, a few artefacts were found close to the surface. One of these was badge given to Harry Willis by the Shire of Alberton at the time of his enlistment. Private Willis, a farm labourer from Yarram, joined the 31st Battalion in 1915. He had 14 siblings but his three older brothers had enlisted with instructions that Harry was to stay home and help run the farm. However the temptation was too great; Harry forged his mother’s signature and enlisted. Eleven months later, on 19 July 1916, he was dead. DNA was obtained from Harry’s niece, 93-year-old Yarram resident Marjorie Whitford whose grandson (Tim) was a key figure in assisting Lambis Englezos in the push for an official search for the men. It gave the family great satisfaction that one of the first Australians to be identified in 2010 was Private Harry Willis. The discovery meant that the epitaph that Harry Willis’ grief-stricken mother composed in 1918 was inscribed on the headstone prior to the memorial service on 19 July, 2010. It simply read: “Beloved son of John and Janet Willis of Alberton, Victoria.”

enabled the authorities to identify 119 of the Australian soldiers. Sadly Jack Bawden, the subject of the Red Cross letter, was not among them. Heaped into the six pits were at least 18 Victorians, from inner-city Brunswick, South Melbourne and Northcote, suburban Canterbury, and from regional Bunyip, Nhill and Alberton. They were postal workers, plasterers, butchers, grocers, stonefitters and farmers, looking for adventure and keen to travel the world. One pit revealed two brothers – Samuel and Eric Wilson – lying side by side; whether it was a coincidence or an act of compassion no one knows. The Wilsons were one of 26 pairs of

brothers killed at Fromelles; two father-son combinations also lost their lives. The first new Commonwealth War Graves cemetery in 50 years was established on land opposite the church at Fromelles and on 30 January 2010 the first of the burials took place. On 19 July, the 94th anniversary of the battle, the last of the 250 soldiers was buried with full military honours. While Lambis Englezos is pleased with the results of his persistence, he is not content to rest on his laurels; he is now researching the recovery of two other battle sites. These are Bullecourt in northern France and Krithia at Gallipoli.

Private John Joseph Goulding PRIVATE John Joseph Goulding, 31st Battalion, was from South Brisbane, Queensland. A 32-year-old labourer prior to enlisting on 30 August 1915, he embarked for overseas with B Company from Melbourne aboard HMAT Wandilla on 9 November 1915. He was captured at Fromelles in France on 19 July 1916 and while being held by the Germans as a prisoner of war, he died that same day. After the war, his grave could not be located and he was commemorated on the Villers Bretonneux Memorial, France. Probably nothing could be more heartbreaking than the letter (below) written by the soldier’s mother in 1916. It was found two years ago in the National Archives by Lambis’ fellow researcher (and great nephew of Private Harry Willis) Tim Whitford. It was read out at the dawn service at Villers-Bretonneux this year. The grief was too great for Alice Goulding as she died a few years after writing the letter. In March of this year the remains of Jack Goulding were identified.

On the other side A runner for the 16th Bavarian Reserve Infantry Regiment, which was entrenched at the Sugarloaf when the Australians attacked on July 19, was a small man with a curious moustache. He was the son of an Austrian customs officer who had been born out of wedlock with the name Alois Schicklgruber, which he later changed to Hitler. The whole course of history could have been different if young Adolph had stuck his head above the parapet and an Australian bullet had found its mark in 1916. Come to think of it, things may have been different if Adolph’s father had not changed his name; “Heil Schicklgruber” may not have caught on.

Preservation champs: National Trust branch president Judy Walsh, left, Rex Hepner, Cr Frank Martin, Tim Hepner and Rod Cull at the heritage awards.

No stone unturned for heritage winners By Mike Hast IF you’ve spent time on peninsula beaches between Mornington and Portsea and admired the solid stone seawalls, you’ve seen veteran stonemason Rex Hepner’s handiwork. Mr Hepner has built walls on the coast of Port Phillip for almost 60 years and earlier this month received the 2012 lifetime achievement award at the Mornington Peninsula Heritage Awards. The awards were started in 2011 by the peninsula branch of the National Trust in conjunction with Mornington Peninsula Shire. This year’s event was on Friday night 18 May at historic Mt Martha House, coincidentally just up the road from one of Mr Hepner’s immoveable walls. As fate would have it, his son Tim Hepner, also a stonemason, collected an award in the “professional and heritage trade skills” category for his work at the Dromana Pier precinct. There were 16 awards in five categories. National Trust branch president Judy Walsh said Mr Hepner senior had built masonry works on the peninsula over many years. They included stone memorials in Mornington Memorial Park, using granite rescued from Robert Watson’s Melrose Run in Mt Martha, built in the 1870s. Mr Hepner is also responsible for the entrance to Hillview Quarries in Boundary Rd, Dromana – no prizes for guessing where the stone was sourced – and, most recently, the forecourt of Dromana Pier where he helped his son Tim integrate new stone walls into the seawalls Hepner senior built years ago. The problem of joining new and old was solved when Mr Hepner informed his son he still had the moulds of the distinctive wave deflector seawalls that keep Port Phillip waters at bay. Mornington and Mt Martha figured prominently at the awards. The recently restored Mornington Band Hall, now called Mornington Park Pavilion by the shire, was honoured in the category “restoration of a heritage place”. Architect Steve Hofer of Williams Kaye Hofer in Mornington collected an award in the “professional and heritage trade skills” category for architectural management the project, and David Hampton of the shire for project management. Oak Hill Gallery on MorningtonTyabb Rd, an 1892 Italianate-style Victorian villa, received a gong for “creative re-use of a heritage place”. Gilpip Bayside Projects won an award in this

category for its redevelopment into apartments of the former St Macartan’s Primary School in Tanti Ave, part of which was destroyed by fire last October and rebuilt again. Friends of Tanti Creek in Mornington won the award for “sustainability/greening of a heritage place” for its five-year restoration of the creek estuary. An award for “restoration of a heritage place” was won by Jarrod Ruch, senior ranger at The Briars Park, for re-establishing the historic kitchen garden and apple orchard at the old homestead. The awards were presented by shire mayor Cr Frank Martin and Dr Graeme Blackman, chairman of the National Trust.

Older pets in focus for winter OH it hurts to get old! Charlie is getting examined by Kim Walter of Westernport Vet Clinics for his Golden Oldies exam at the Hastings Vet Clinic. He has been seemingly well, according to owner Matt Ray, but it is always a good idea to get pets regularly checked (at least yearly), especially as they get over the age of seven years. Due to improved pet care and dietary habits, pets are now living longer than ever before. This means we are faced with age-related changes that can cause discomfort, pain or illness to pets. Thankfully, veterinary care has advanced along with old pets and vets are now able to detect and diagnose more problems and treat them appropriately to ensure pets live long and comfortable lives. In general, cats and dogs are considered geriatric from the age of seven. However, vets are now commonly seeing older dogs and cats living well into their teenage years. Regular health checks are advised for geriatric pets to

ensure any changes or illnesses are diagnosed early to provide appropriate care. Vets can commonly see arthritis, dental disease, kidney disease, heart disease, hormonal disease (diabetes, thyroid, etc) and even cancer in older pets. Because of this vets take extra care when examining older pets and often recommend blood tests to make sure they are healthy internally as well. When these diseases are detected early enough vets can start preventative medications or diets to control the disease before it becomes too late. Early intervention is the key with all these diseases and can improve the quality of life and longevity of your favourite old pet. In Charlie’s case he was found to have some early signs of arthritis in the spine and some old age changes in the eyes that obscure his vision a little. Charlie was put on a special diet called Hill’s j/d, and a zydax injection course started to improve the health of his joints. This was a pretty good result for Charlie, and by starting arthritis prevention now he will chase tennis balls for many more years to come.

LEAVES IN YOUR GUTTER? Protect your home against fire and flooding The Allclear Leafguard made from Colorbond® steel has many benefits, including protecting and prolonging the life of your gutters. The problem of bushfires is always upon us and there is a pressing need for home owners to protect their properties as best they can in the event of fire. One of the ways home owners can be prepared is by ensuring their gutters are free of leaves and debris that could easily catch on fire, leading the flames to the body of your home. There is a Colorbond product on the market at the moment that can save you all the hassles regarding leaves blocking your gutters and creating a fire hazard. It is called the Allclear Leafguard and was developed by Ron Lienert after he spent 20 years in the home improvement business, including many years using other leafguard products. “I saw a need for a good leafguard and was able to evolve a successful formula,” Ron Lienert said.

The Allclear Leafguard is made of Colorbond steel, the same material as your gutters - so it wont melt in fire or perish and become brittle. It stops embers and burning leaves getting under the roof as happened in the Canberra fires. It is for this reason that the Allclear Leafguard can safely give you an amazing 20 - year warranty. The Leafguard is secured under your tile or iron roof and to the front of your guttering. “With it’s unique design, it stops leaves laying flat and also circulates air to blow the leaves away eliminating cleaning problems” Ron Lienert said. “When the leafguard is in place it cannot be seen from the ground, so it does not ruin the appearance of your roof.” Gone are the days of spending hours of your valuable weekend time up on a ladder clearing your gutters by hand! The Allclear Leafguard will do the job for you. The Allclear Leafguard is also an important barrier against potentially devastating fire.

In fire prone areas, keeping leaves out of gutters using the leafguard means no swirling lighted leaves in the event of a house fire, which could be devastating to your home. “Because there is no leaf build up in the gutters, there isn’t the added problem of them catching on fire and the rest of the house burning with it” Ron Lienert said. By keeping your gutters clear of leaves, it will stop any overflowing which causes water damage to your home and will ensure gutters last years longer. “The Allclear Leafguard can also be used to convert box gutters into normal guttering to help solve problems of flooding” Ron Lienert said. “The system is versatile and can be custom made, if required.” It is also an excellent product for tankwater. The Australian made Allclear Leafguard has proved extremely successful in the past couple of years being recognised as the more superior leafguards on the market in NSW, QLD and Victoria.

Allclear staff have been trained in all aspects of leaf and gutter problems to help bring this amazing product to you. We are available to give obligation free quotes and good advice by calling Allclear Leafguard and Gutter on freecall 1800 426 607.

A fine blend

The one that you want

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

WITH great street appeal, this neat brick home has a touch of character about it and represents a perfect low-maintenance home for people wanting to downsize. The 810-square metre block has been perfectly maintained with manicured lawns and there is a variety of trees and native plants. Through the single carport alongside the home is a steel double garage with paved area in front, and further to the back of the block is a smaller garden shed. There is a nice undercover patio, which during the warmer months will extend the living area. A roller blind can partially enclose this area. The three bedrooms all have built-in robes and the larger main bedroom has a dual-entry bathroom with separate shower and vanity.

Wedding Expo

MORNINGTON RACECOURSE - JUNE 17, 2012

Expo for special day THE Annual Mornington Wedding Expo is the only truly locally based expo on the peninsula where more than 75 per cent of exhibitors are from the peninsula – and Peninsula Expos is peninsula-based. If you are looking for anything to do with a wedding, this is the expo to visit as we have everything from invites, cakes, bombonieres, hire cars, venues, entertainment and more from more than 40 exhibitors. There will be ABIA-accredited finalists and winners from 2011 and 2012 at this expo plus accredited members of Mornington Peninsula Weddings, so quality is guaranteed. At this year’s expo we are doing something new that has never been done in Australia – a grooms-only workshops. There will be three workshops where specialists from the industry, John Beck and Phil Rampton, will talk to grooms about what they can do on the day and prior to play a part in the special day. Plus we will be doing information sessions (see our advert for times) next to centre stage on different products to help you decide what is best for the big day. There will also be a huge fashion parade with three fashion houses including menswear. Peninsula Expos was formed in 2009 and took over the local Mornington wedding expo from Jennifer Webber who previously ran the event under Kiss My Arts. The owner of Peninsula Expos is DJ PD Entertainment Plus (formally DJ PeterD Entertainment Plus) and we are passionate about the industry. We also work in the industry so what we offer exhibitors and brides is based on our experience. Feel free to visit the expo as entry is only a donation to SIDS for kids in memory of Jaxon Turnbull who sadly was taken too soon. Even if you are not getting married, you can still check out menswear, entertainment, photographers and more for other occasions. There will also be a beautiful door prize sponsored by Hoskings and there will be many vouchers from various suppliers in the showbag.

LITTLE Black Booth, winner of an Australian Bridal Industry Association (ABIA) Award, with a rating of 99.40 per cent is the home of the first peninsula photobooths. An ABIA award is given to the highest rated supplier as determined by brides. There’s something about stepping into a photobooth, drawing the curtain and playing up to the camera with a few props. Our Little Black Booth photobooths will capture the intimate, hilarious and unexpected moments of your wedding forever. Two identical photostrips will print in just 16 seconds but become treasured keepsakes for you and your guests that will last for years. A photobooth is the ultimate way to capture the progression of your reception. It’s an icebreaker that will give your guests a truly unique bonbonierre. Add our custom black leather, 100-page photo album to your hire and you’ll take home your very own personalised album to remember the night for years to come. This includes hiring a professional, bubbly photobooth host who will collate the album with photos taken during your event, ask guests to write you a message and demonstrate how to use the booth to its full potential. They’ll encourage your shy friends to get their photo taken and offer inspiration for memorable messages – a fantastic, instant memento that you’ll take home that very night. Why use our photo booth? With more than 160 events under our belt, you know you’re in the right hands. We can’t wait to add fun and laughter to your event.

Good time to think not do

CO SE N N RV O TR IC AC E TS

By Frances Cameron ON cold, grey days you donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t often feel like getting out into your garden. These days can be a really good excuse to sit inside, take a good look at your garden through the windows and work out what needs to be done. All the leaves from deciduous trees in your neighbourhood that end up in drifts in corners, or any other nooks and crannies, can be gathered into big gardening bags. Mix through a couple of handfuls of blood and bone, tie up the tops and store them somewhere for the next couple of months. By the time spring comes around, the blood and bone should have helped them to start breaking down into a nice crumbly mixture for you to add to your garden beds. Some deciduous plants can be propagated with hardwood cuttings, a process that can be performed now when they are coming into dormancy. Plants that can be propagated like this are weigela (usually W. florida), berberis (B. thunbergia), and kerria (K. japonica) along with most hydrangea species. This process involves getting cuttings from the current yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s growth that are about 15cm long and have at least 3 or 4 healthy buds near the top. Make the bottom cut straight and the top cut on an angle facing away from the closest bud. The cuttings can then be placed either in a trench in the ground, which has been dug over so the soil isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t lumpy, or in a pot using a good quality potting mix. If you are planting into the ground, make a trench as long as you need and about 8 to 10 cm deep then put some washed river sand in the bottom to a depth of about 2cm; the sand will aid in the formation of roots. Place the cuttings into the trench and backfill the

soil. The cuttings can take up to two months to form roots big enough to allow transferring the cuttings to their own pots. Spring flowering bulbs, corms and tubers like daffodils, grape hyacinth, anemone, brodiaea and tulips should be in the ground or pots by now, and some of the earlier flowering bulbs should be starting to pop their heads up above the surface of the soil. If you neglected to give them some food at planting time, you can still sprinkle a bit of blood and bone around them now, but otherwise wait until they have flowered before feeding them again. Feeding them as their flowers fade gives the bulbs energy to store for their next growing season. Keep the areas around them weed-free and mulched with a light covering such as pea straw to protect them over winter. Transplanting can be done now, as long as the soil isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t too wet. The key to doing this successfully is to prepare well before shifting the plant. Dig and prepare the new hole first, have a good supply of water ready to water it in and cutting tools ready to cut it back at the same time; reducing the leaf surface area will reduce the risk of the plant going into shock through loss of moisture. Remember to prune the top of the plant to about the same size as the root ball. There are plenty of beautiful plants in flower throughout early winter, grevillea such as G. â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Honey gemâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; and G. â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Jessie Cadwellâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; flower most of the year. Other natives such as banksia ericifolia and the pincushion hakea (Hakea laurina), one of my favourites, are flowering now as well. Get into your neighbourhood and find them. Happy hunting.

D& ENTERTAINMENT ʔʦLȫɏ

Now that grunge has gone and left me here By Stuart McCullough IN 1990, “grunge” was the soapy residue found in hard-to-reach cavities of washing machines. For those of us who frequented laundrettes at the time, grunge was simply one of a cavalcade of hazards that came with doing your laundry in an appliance that didn’t belong to you. Fast-forward 12 months and “grunge” meant something else entirely. While hipsters with their fingers fixed to the popular culture pulse would surely nominate an earlier date, for me the release of Nevermind by Nirvana marked the moment that grunge announced its arrival by kicking down the front door of the musical establishment. The impact of the album cannot be overstated, unless, of course, you claim it cured the common cold and developed the perfect non-stick saucepan. Like a comet that hurtled to earth, grunge music resulted in the sudden extinction of rock dinosaurs. In the 1980s, hard rock usually meant big hair and spandex pants. For reasons that cannot now be explained, this was somehow regarded as masculine. In an instant, those bands all appeared quite foolish. It was as if the people had risen up and overthrown a brutal dictatorship – one in which the evil overlord had imposed sub-standard

soft rock on a repressed people. They would tolerate it no more. In the new order, many bands disappeared as surely as a magician’s assistant or, even worse, subjected themselves to the ultimate indignity of trying to “go grunge”. Without exception, they failed and were relegated to the underbelly that is reality television from where they would plot their glorious resurrection as a nostalgia act. The grunge trend wasn’t just about music. For a time in the early 1990s, there was also grunge literature. What made these works of literary endeav-

our grungy was never entirely clear. Mostly, they were plain unhygienic and not very interesting. Then there were the clothes – lumberjack shirts, torn jeans and big boots. These items of apparel were the tie-dye of our generation. I would say that we wore these things with style, but that was simply not possible. Let me be honest and say that I was not ready for grunge at first. In fact, its sudden emergence saw me being placed on the musical equivalent of the endangered species list. For in the golden year of 1991, I

was not playing in a three-piece guitar band, bathing in swathes of distortion and wailing as though I had just accidentally severed my toe. No, sir, I was playing in a five-piece funk band. Perhaps the only thing worse than playing in a funk band in the year grunge broke was to be its keyboard player. It seemed desperately unfair. In the Eighties, along with big-haired soft rock galloots, the decade was ruled by keyboards. At one point, keyboards threatened to make guitars completely redundant when the revolutionary keytar emerged. The sight of Jan Hammer pumping out the Theme from Miami Vice on a Royalex Probe was enough to cause a generation of youngsters to turn up their collective nose at Stratocasters and Gibson SGs in favour of a keyboard. The future had arrived, and it looked like a synthesizer. Suddenly, years of piano lessons meant I was poised to reap the benefits. But as grunge took over, it became apparent that I had backed the wrong horse. Melbourne quickly became a grunge city and bands that did anything else were considered perversions. Trying to get a gig in the early 1990s for a funk band was much like being a typewriter salesman in 2012. The odds and Marshall amps were stacked against us. For a few weeks, we had a residency at the Royal Derby Hotel. The idea

behind a residency is that you build an audience. Instead, we built a compelling case for a jukebox. Over those weeks we supported another band, called No Junk Mail. Sometimes there were people at the venue and we successfully disrupted several games of pool. Most weeks, however, we were each other’s audience. If it was hard being a five-piece funk band in the early 1990s, then the predicament of No Junk Mail was more dire still. They were somewhat older than us and had their sights firmly set on stardom. But they were wearing spandex. Obscurity beckoned. For us, we continued on but the jig was up one night when we arrived at a venue in the western suburbs to find that it had special parking for trucks. It was clear that we had come to the end of the road, and it had plenty of parking. I believed in grunge then. There has not been a moment like it since. Ultimately, grunge could not survive itself and was eventually cannibalised by bands that wore the uniform while sounding like the hair metal bands that had been so unceremoniously overthrown. Perhaps it’s a sign of age when you hear new music and start to speak of how much better things used to be. If you said that to a kid today, they’d look at you funny. It’s enough to make you say: never mind. www.stuartmccullough.com

Crib ends Somie season, Hillmen top Blues By Toe Punt CRIB Point has ended Somerville’s season. The Magpies went out on Saturday and for one of the first times this season played four consistent quarters of footy and won the game. Somerville is now in all kinds of trouble, sitting second bottom on the ladder with just two wins. A number of players returned to the club this season to “win a premiership”. At this stage, the Eagles are at long odds to even play finals. Questions now need to be asked of the Eagles, who recruited former Hastings’ player Timmy Churchin in the past fortnight. He booted six goals on Saturday in his debut game but the Eagles still lost. During the break, there are going to be a lot of questions asked. On paper, the Eagles were top three, but they sit bottom two. The Magpies, on the other hand, have been looking for consistency and it’s coming. Coach Dave Lawson said he was pleased his team was able to sustain pressure for the whole game. “Our third quarter was a little disapointing because we allowed them back into the contest, but we were able to finish the game off really well, which was pleasing,” Lawson said. “We were a little sloppy and undisciplined in the third and were down to 17 men at one stage after Wade Symes was sent off. We let a five-goal lead slip.” Lawson said he got an even contributionn from all 22 players on Saturday. “There were no real standouts, although James Elliott did a fantastic job on Glenn Boyd,” Lawson said. Jon Flack booted five majors for the Pies, while David Cook and Brad Davidson were outstanding contributors. Ben Crowe was again Somerville’s best, along with Churchin.

Frankston Bombers made it three wins in a row against quality opposition by knocking over the previously undefeated Sorrento on Saturday. The Sharks booted the first four goals at Greg Beck Oval in Baxter, before the Bombers sprung into action and snagged 14 majors to eight after the five-minute mark of the second quarter. Bombers were superb in all aspects of the game, winning 14.12-96 to 12.14-86. Coach Tony Blackford was questioning himself four weeks ago – following the 100-point thrashing by Devon Meadows –about whether he still had the ability to get the best out of his players. The likes of Nathan and

better of that duel, while James Degenhardt went to Cayden Beetham and won that battle. Shaun Brand was superb in the back line, Haydn Moore controlled the ruck, and Nathan Lonie and Jay Reynolds with two goals each were dangerous. Brad Wakeling booted three goals, but his opponent Chris Baggot was absolutely superb on the dangerous forward. Mitch Nibbs had the tagging role on Lonie and got plenty of the footy, while Jon Casper was also good for the Sharks. Blackford said after the match he was extremely pleased. “The group has been working hard and has shown faith in what we are trying to achieve,” Blackford said. “Self-belief is something that has been lacking for a little while and you can’t train for that. Belief comes from applying your structures and getting the results. “We’ve been able to do this three weeks in a row against quality opposition and the results have come. The boys can really enjoy their week off and be ready for another tough game, against Pearcedale. “We’re expected to beat Pearcedale but as we have seen in this competition, there is no certainties. Only our best football will get the result we are looking for.” Tyabb played one good quarter of good football, which was enough to get them over the line against Pearcedale. The Yabbies trailed at every change, but booted five goals to two in the last quarter to

Ryan Lonie, Brian O’Carroll and Haydn Moore assured him that he was the right man for the job and that the players needed to take some responsibility. The result since that belting has been wins against Dromana, Rosebud and now Sorrento. Again it was the “youngsters” in the Frankston Bombers side who really stepped up to the plate. If Frankston was every going to challenge the best sides in the competition, the 18- to 21-year-olds needed to compete and be consistent. Mick Maiorino was again in sensational form, booting four goals, and Jay Page played well. Shawn Wilkey was on Leigh Treeby and had the

win 14.14-98 to 14.11-95. According to Yabbies’ coach Brad Coller, his side was “lucky to get away with a win”. “We played three quarters of average footy and decided to turn it on in the last quarter,” Coller said. “Once again we proved that our best was good enough to get the result, but we can’t continue to play like this. “Our inability to switch on for long periods is a concern and it’s an area we simply must improve if we are going to challenge the top sides. “Incredibly, we are just outside the top five, which gives us hope that if we keep working and become mentally stronger, we are in a position to challenge.” Ash Waterstone was sensational for the Yabbies with five goals, while Ryan Jones and Johnny Alexander were dominant. It was a game the Panthers really set themselves up for to win. At half-time they led by 12 points and extended the margin to 15 points at the last change. Andrew Douglas played his best game for the Panthers, while Nick Wilcox and Ben Cadd with three goals were also fine contributors. Hastings’ woes continued on Saturday, beaten by Red Hill by eight points. The Blues led at every change, but when the whips were cracking in the final term, the Blues couldn’t answer the challenge. Red Hill booted four goals to one in the last to win 13.9-87 to 11.13-79. Teenager Jarred Douglas

was outstanding for the Hillmen, booting five goals, while Robert Mace and David Teasedale were also in sensational touch. Adam Jago continued to fly the flag for the Blues, and Paul Rogasch and Colin McVeigh also worked hard. The Blues are downhill skiers at the moment and are no chance to redeem last season if they continue with this attitude. Now is the time for them to reassess, look one another in the eye and tell some home truths. Either they want to have a full tilt at the flag and do everything necessary to achieve that, or simply do not commit and join the blokes on the other side of the fence and give advice from the sidelines. For Red Hill, they are doing everything right at the minute. Inconsistency comes from inexperience, but the Hillmen’s best is good enough to match it with the top sides in the competition. What the Hillmen need is mental application to cover the twohour journey. Rye played four solid quarters to record a sensational win against Dromana, 13.1088 to 6.8-44. The Demons smashed the Tigers in contested footy, beat them at the stoppages and continually drove the ball from half-back with minimum pressure applied. Justin Van Unen was double teamed all afternoon and sometimes had three up against him, but still managed to finish with seven goals. Leigh Morse was outstanding at half-forward and Darren Booth was clearly best on the ground. Why the opposition didn’t run a tag on Booth off halfback was mind boggling. Also mind boggling was the fact that Steven Gaertner provided all kinds of headaches in the ruck for the opposition, but only spent five-minute bursts in there. Rhett Sutton had a field day in the ruck and around the ground, completely dominating his inexperienced opponent. Adam Kirkwood was another player who dominated from half-back for the Demons, while Sean Cain was also dominant. Terry Wheeler and Jared Terry were clearly the Tigers’ best players. Rosebud made it two losses in a row, well beaten by Devon Meadows. The Buds led at half-time by seven points, but the Panthers booted 13 goals to six after the break to win 16.11-107 to 10.10-70. Ryan Talbot kicked five and Daniel Velardo two for the winners, and Callum O’Hare was sensational in the ruck. Ryan Spooner and Sam Krumeich were up and about for the Buds, and Cade Egan was again superb across halfback.

Redlegs pummel Chelsea on its way down By Toe Punt CHELSEA coach Jason Chapple was lost for words after his side was smashed by Mt Eliza in MPNFL Peninsula Division football on Saturday. The usual confident and upbeat Chapple had gone missing. He was devastated, shattered and bewildered. The Redlegs booted the last nine goals of the match and 17 to five after half-time to run out 98-point winners, 26.14-170 to 11.6-72. It was a second versus third match, but in reality was a club on the up versus a club on its knees. Following the one-point win against neighbour Bonbeach two weeks earlier, the Seagulls had a lot to prove against quality opposition. Mt Eliza was shown up by Karingal in its last match and had something to prove. Like it so often does against quality sides (Frankston YCW and Karingal in the past), Chelsea was exposed. Once again, when the blowtorch was turned on midway through the second quarter, the Seagulls melted like chocolate in the sun. They failed to stop the momentum of the opposition. The side clearly lacks self-belief. Chapple said the buck stopped with him: “Mentally, we are just not strong enough and that sits on my shoulders – I’m responsible if the side can’t perform. “I’ve got half a dozen [players] who

constantly have a go and the rest just don’t deliver.” Mt Eliza delivered plenty on Saturday. Scott Lockwood booted eight goals while Ben Landry, Sam Lloyd and Benny Lean all contributed three goals each. Rohan Heasley was back in the side after injury and had an immediate impact, Justin Grant looked at home in the seniors in his second senior game for the season and Josh Norman continues to get better. By season’s end, Norman will be talked about as much as Lloyd. Chris Worner worked tirelessly for the Seagulls with four goals, Gary and Sam Carpenter shone, and Pat Donnellan and Niz Abdallah continue to give their all. Along with skipper Anthony Lewis, Chapple said “it’s those half a dozen blokes, along with Luke Damon, who give everything they have consistently”. “The challenge is to get the rest of the list playing with the same intensity,” Chapple said. Pines coach Steve Ryan said prior to the Sunday game against Seaford that nothing short of a four-quarter effort would be good enough. The former Richmond and Collingwood forward labelled his list as “playing on reputation” and also believed that “some of the list thought they were better than they actually are”. They were harsh words from the

42-year-old Rye premiership star, who went out and represented the Pythons again on Sunday. “While I think the list can get a lot more out of themselves, I also believe they will benefit from having me out there with them, guiding the team,” Ryan said before the match. The Pythons also threw 40-year-old Gordon Hendry onto the field, while Ricky Ramsdale played his first match of the season. In skipper “Jimmy” Messina’s 200th game for the Pythons, the messages didn’t ring true – the visitors were smashed by almost 100 points, 22.10142 to 7.9-51. Tommy Shaw booted seven and Brayden Irving four as the Tigers mauled the Pythons after quarter time. The margin was only 16 points at the first change after Pines kicked the first goal of the match. Luke Smith and Josh Stokes were outstanding for the winners. Messina booted four in his milestone game while Shaun McPherson and Adam McPherson provided the contests that Ryan was looking for. Karingal did what it needed to do on Saturday – belt a lower side that will have no bearing on the finals. The Bulls comprehensively steamrolled Langwarrin on Saturday and had players kicked straight, the final margin would have been a lot more than 96 points. The home side had 45 scoring shots to just nine, completely dominating the

contest. The Bulls booted 4.10 in the first quarter. Sam McGarry is a star of the competition and his run off half-back and through the middle was a highlight. Grant Goodall was dominant in the ruck and even stretched the opposition back line when he ventured deep to kick three goals. Anthony Joel is a very handy pick up for the Bulls, knows where to find the goals and finished the afternoon with three, while Chris Hay (four goals) and David Hirst were also outstanding. Karingal has some good depth now with the likes of Al Williams, Tim Hirst, Jason Bedford and Jarrod Eames all playing in the magoos on Saturday. Depth has been the real issue for the Bulls in the past couple of seasons and they now have that very important ingredient. Langwarrin was simply outmuscled and outclassed. Shane Urbans and Andrew Withers continue to play top line football and Mark McGill, Dylan Luxa and Jarryd Amalfi are in the team’s best every week. Kangas coach Paul Wheatley made his debut for the team on Saturday and finished with one goal. Frankston YCW took a while to shake off Bonbeach on Saturday but managed to do so with an eight goal to three final term. The Stonecats led by just 28 points at three-quarter time, but ran out comfortable winners, 18.10-118 to 9.7-61.

David Bodley finished with five goals and a further eight players contributed on the scoreboard. Anthony Barry and Ryan Johnson dominated off half-back for the Stonecats while Blake McCormack continues to come of age. Shaun Foster did a great job for the Sharks and Josh Bull was outstanding against bigger and stronger bodies. Mornington staged a sensational last quarter effort to get over the line against Edithvale-Aspendale in a thriller. Mornington lead by 13 points at quarter time, but the home side took control in the second through the likes of Timmy Mannix and Brent Bowden (four goals) and snared a commanding 16-point break. Jeremy Heys and Rob Snashall were providing plenty of run for the Eagles, and Beau and Tommy Turner were also playing key roles. At three-quarter time, the margin was 14 points in favour of the Eagles. Mornington found an extra gear in the last quarter. Jackson Calder provided a target in attack and finished with three goals, while youngsters Jack Dickson and Nick Newman, back from the Stingrays, played key roles in the last quarter comeback. It was good to see Aidan Speedy play a superb game, while leaders Scott Mathews and Dan Villani brought their-A-grade game to the field.

Blues look to best Cats, Dees take on Pies Round 11 Previews Friday 8 June Carlton v Geelong, Etihad Stadium, 7.50pm Round 11 starts with the game of the round between Carlton and Geelong at Etihad. Both teams haven’t been in great form. The Blues were dismal against Port Adelaide; the team really missed the run of Marc Murphy and Andrew Carrazzo, which puts more pressure on Judd and Simpson. The Cats have been slowly building form; they looked sloppy against the Giants but still ended up winning by 60 points. The Blues have had poor form at Etihad recently, only winning the GWS game. Really tough game to pick, but the Blues best is better than Geelong’s. Carlton by 12 points. Saturday 9 June Richmond v Fremantle, MCG, 1.40pm The Tiger train keeps rolling after the club claimed another prize scalp in the Saints. Everything is going right, the midfield is looking invincible, Jack Riewoldt has kicked 14 goals in two weeks and the makeshift backline continues to get the job done. Coach Damien Hardwick has done a fabulous job; Richmond needed a ruckman so got Ivan Maric and it needed a running defender so got Bachar Houli. The Tigers are one big scalp away from challenging for a top six spot. The Dockers must make the trip to the MCG, where it hasn’t won since 2007. On the weekend Fremantle showed improvement when it nearly upset the Crows, but there is still plenty of work to be done. Richmond by 44 points. Gold Coast v St Kilda, Metricon Stadium, 4.40pm We’ve had 10 rounds and Gold Coast sit sadly on the bottom of the ladder. With little improvement visible, times are tough for the Suns. As phenomenal as Ablett’s 53 touches were, it’s not doing any benefits for teammates’ development or the overall result. In the long-run the kids need to be able to win their own footy without the safety net that is Gary Ablett. The Saints are travelling well. Their new generation of tough midfielders in David Armitage and Jack Steven are flying and there are a few more potentials on the way. The Suns need a win desperately but it won’t come this week. St Kilda by 49 points.

Essendon v Sydney, Etihad Stadium, 7.40pm The Bombers will be furious going into this game, wanting to make amends for a frustrating loss on the weekend. Essendon was the better team, but kicked itself out of the game with 6.16. Michael Hurley was one of the main offenders, kicking 0.3 with a few out on the fulls. The Swans went back to basics and reaped the rewards when they flogged the Bulldogs by 92 points. Jude Bolton looked like he was back in his golden years when he racked up 41 disposals and kicked two goals. This should be a close encounter, but the Swans haven’t won a game in Melbourne this season. Essendon by 11 points. Sunday 10 June Port Adelaide v Hawthorn, AAMI Stadium, 4pm On Sunday evening, these two inform teams look to continue winning momentum. The Power has won three in a row, a feat not achieved since 2010. In could be argued the North Melbourne and Gold Coast wins weren’t big, but the Carlton win was huge and it wasn’t even a close game – they smashed them for four quarters. Young midfielders Hamish Hartlett and Matthew Broadbent are playing great football and Travis Boak back in form. The Hawks on the weekend needed to make a statement and Buddy Franklin sure did, kicking 13 goals, something that hasn’t been seen since Scott Cummings of West Coast kicked 14 in round four of 2000. Overall Hawthorn is looking like the team we’ve seen in recent years. Hawthorn by 29 points. Monday 11 June Melbourne v Collingwood, MCG, 3.15pm The Queen’s Birthday holiday gives us a match-up of two teams coming in after completely different but equally encouraging wins. The Dees finally broke the duck when they upset the Bombers last Saturday night; it had been a long time coming for coach Mark Neeld. However the time for reflection will come later – they’ve got a big clash against Collingwood, which has won its last seven matches. For the Pies, Dale Thomas has recovered well from a hamstring injury, and has been inspirational in the last two wins. In recent years the Magpies have dominated this clash, but two years ago we saw an amazing game of football ending in a draw. It probably won’t be as close this time but the Demons are improving. Collingwood by 77 points. Twitter: FootballTragic9 Total tips: 65

Pines’ slide arrested, Baxter and Langy struggle By Craig MacKenzie DANNY Verdun is on track to halt a four-year slide that has taken Frankston Pines from the dizzy heights of Premier League to Provisional League 1. The former Knox City coach also is on track to break a dismal recent record by recording more than four wins in a season for the beleaguered Monterey Reserve outfit. Pines’ third success in 2012 came on Saturday against Sandringham courtesy of a stunning 30-metre free kick from Ross Wallis. The former Sunshine George Cross midfielder struck late in the game and it was enough to clinch the three points and give Pines a four-point buffer from the relegation zone. Pines won just four games in both the 2008 and 2010 seasons. It won two games in 2009 and last year had just a solitary win. “The committee told me from the start that the aim was to avoid getting relegated again,” Verdun said. “It’s been hard because a week before the first game we had just nine players, but we’re getting our squad together now and we’re looking at signing a striker to complete the squad.” Verdun’s recent signings, goalkeeper Kris McEvoy and midfielder Craig Kerr from Mooroolbark, played their part in Saturday’s success and the club has high expectations of the duo. “We’ve got to stay humble because there’s a long, long way to go but I really think that we can build on what we’ve started here,” Verdun said. Peninsula Strikers’ 4-2 victory at home against Knox City was spearheaded by Sait Uygur’s hat-trick. Uygur was on target after five min-

utes but Knox levelled from the penalty spot just before half-time and took the lead early in the second half before a stunning volley from Jack Wrobel made it 2-2. Uygur put the home side back in front with a soaring header from David Schout’s cross and shortly after put the contest out of Knox’s reach. Seaford United maintained its pro-

motion push with a 3-1 home win over Provisional League 2 opponent Keysborough on Saturday. A Luke Gale header had the home side in front, but the lead only lasted two minutes. A fine Paul Williams’ finish following a great build-up in the 15th minute restored Seaford’s advantage and a 62nd-minute Dave Greening penalty

settled the issue. The only downside was the straight red card issued to Seaford’s John Watson late in the game for what senior coach Kevin Roberts termed “an agricultural challenge”. Seaford now sits in second spot just two points behind league leader Caulfield United Cobras. Skye United’s 4-0 home win over

last-placed Lyndale United on the weekend was highlighted by Cristian Espinoza’s hat-trick. Nick Dumovic also got on the scoresheet. The result gives Skye some breathing space in the bottom half of the table and its next match is an away clash with struggling Boroondara Eagles, which has leaked 19 goals this season. Baxter’s promotion hopes nosedived on Saturday when it was soundly beaten 5-2 at Baxter Park by tabletopping Rowville Eagles. It was Baxter’s second successive loss and things won’t get any easier when it travels to Dendy Park in a fortnight to face second-placed Old Brighton Grammarians. Langwarrin’s promotion hopes are fading fast as evidenced by Friday night’s 2-0 away loss to Doncaster Rovers. Simply stated, the home team was too slick for Langwarrin whose dismal finishing compounded its problems. The sending off in the second half of star striker Caleb Nicholes adds to coach Gus Macleod’s woes and Langy’s next game is a home clash against Stan Webster’s high-flying Morwell Pegasus. There are no league games this weekend, which is reserved for the State Knockout Cup and no local clubs remain in that competition. Saturday 16 June: Langwarrin v Morwell Pegasus (Lawton Park, 3pm), Heatherton Utd v Peninsula Strikers (Bosnia and Herzegovina Centre, 3pm), Mooroolbark v Frankston Pines (Esther Park Reserve, 8.15pm), Boroondara Eagles v Skye Utd (Macleay Park, 3pm), Endeavour Utd v Seaford Utd (Reema Reserve, 3pm), Old Brighton Grammarians v Baxter (Dendy Park, 3pm).

Warriors hold off determined Power WESTERNPORT Warriors had a reality check in the game against Wynbay Power on Wednesday at Soldiers Reserve in Werribee. Having defeated the Power in round 2 by 125 points, it was safe to assume the Power posed little or no threat to the strong Warriors outfit even though they were playing on their home turf. The Warriors were so confident they rested star veteran Jordan “Hungry” Hendrix who was suffering from the dreaded “general soreness”. Warriors’ medical staff believed the long bus trek to Werribee could inhibit his recovery. Hungry is a minnow who likes

to rise above the pack and his absence from the team proved significant as the Warriors held off a determined Power to win 8.10-58 to 5.6-36. The first quarter was all Warriors as they slammed on six goals with Tim “Buddy” Churchin dominating from the key forward post; he had five to his name at the first change. Kyle “Armed” Robb was having a huge impact on his wing and the likes of Ash “Naughty” Norton and “Jumping” Joey Robb were having it all their own way through the middle. Jake ‘Lleyton’ Hewitt continued his outstanding early season form and his

strong marking with the greasy ball was a sight to see as he held on to a number of memorable grabs. Travis “Lord” Maher was elevated from the “rookie” list, grabbed his opportunity with both hands and proved to be a real problem for the Power who early on thought they were going to be in for another almighty drubbing. To the Power’s credit, they made some adjustments and played half their team on Buddy and this significantly impacted the Warriors’ scoring prowess. The Warriors didn’t have any answers as Buddy’s significant other in

“Tiny” Tim Hardy couldn’t find any space and the forward line became a zone of frustration. Dashing Danny Martin held firm in defence and played probably his best game for the Warriors, repelling the Power when they came forward. Chris “Head” Bastin’s contribution cannot be underestimated either and it was a fantastic effort to arrive at the ground via train and bicycle after he did a Gary Sidebottom and missed the team bus. As the game progressed, the Power grew in confidence and with Buddy well held, Wynbay marginally out-

scored the Warriors in the last three quarters. The Warriors were good enough to record a 22-point victory and will have to get their mojo back quickly if they are to compete against the likes of Sacred Heart and Doveton in the coming carnival round. The carnival round is at Xavier College in Kew on Wednesday 13 June and the Warriors will play three games. The bus leaves Hastings Youth Centre, Shed 11, 11 Marine Parade, at 8.30am. Andrew Brady
