Snarls over luxury dog house

Judy Banks and Bob Phillips are among neighbours in Bungower Rd, Moorooduc, upset about plans for a dog boarding kennel complex. Picture: Yanni

TEN landowners in a section of Bungower Rd, Moorooduc, will share their rural idyll with more than 65 dogs if the shire council approves an application from a veterinarian. The vet is asking the council to approve plans for “Bark Avenue” boarding kennels at 281 Bungower Rd near Coolart Rd. Stage one will have 20 “luxury” kennels and runs for large dogs and eight for small dogs. Stage two will have six kennels and runs for large dogs and 32 for medium dogs. There also will be 14 exercise yards. Other elements of the complex include a cattery, geriatric dog area, offices, vet area, storerooms and grooming room. Continued Page 4

Labor dumps port By Mike Hast THE Victorian Labor Party has rejected more than six years of planning for an expanded Port of Hastings. Last week it released a jobs and investment strategy dumping its support of Hastings in favour of the socalled “Bay West” option, a new port

proposed for the western side of Port Phillip between Geelong and Werribee. The decision is a massive about-face as the ALP proposed building a threestage port at Hastings when it was in government. Hastings Liberal MP Neale Burgess said “Labor has abandoned more than

40 years of bipartisan support for the Port of Hastings, deserted the people of the Western Port community and managed a complete backflip on the position it argued in government for 11 years”. “The Western Port community and Victorians have been waiting for the

jobs that will flow from the development of the Port of Hastings for more than 40 years and Mr Pallas and his Labor mates would be prepared to again sell those hopes out for political gain,” he said. Since losing to the Liberal-National Coalition in late 2010, Labor had con-

Joshua waves his way to win

Legal CEO quits PENINSULA Community Legal Centre Helen Constas has resigned after almost 30 years with the centre. The surprise announcement was made on Monday afternoon, but no reason was given for her departure. The legal centre’s general manager of volunteers and education, Andrea Staunton, said in a short press release: “Ms Constas has now decided to pursue other adventures and has tendered her resignation. Ms Constas wishes the centre, the staff and volunteers every success in the important work they are doing. “The management committee and staff would like to thank Ms Constas for her dedication and work over the many years and wish her well in her future endeavours.”

THE waves of Gunnamatta lived up to their reputation for Saturday’s Peninsula Surfriders’ Club contest. Home break for the club, the waves of the incoming tide were groomed by a light northeasterly as they broke on a bank near the second car park. The conditions set up some tight surfing between the club’s foremost riders, but it was Joshua Hallam (pictured) who took out the honours. A clue to Hallam’s form was given to his closest competitors during the semi-finals when he scored a perfect 10. “The decision was made early to hold the contest on the right-hand rip bowl and we had pumping waves from the start right up until about 1pm when the tide bottomed out,” club president Adam Morris said. “It was another great day down at the beach once the clouds burnt off and I’d say the earlier open rounds had some of the better waves we have had for a contest in a long time. “Unfortunately for all final divisions, a mix of the tide and the onshore wind made conditions tricky.” Morris, who was eliminated during the quarter finals, said Forrest Brothes also showed good form. “But Hallam was too good in the final, scoring his second Open A division win.” The club’s next aggregate contest will be in late February or early March although a single-fin contest will be held on Australia Day.

Fame has sprung PENINSULA Hot Springs has been inducted into the RACV Victorian Tourism Awards Hall of Fame after being a three-time winner of the Health and Wellbeing category. The hot springs this year won the state Tourism Attraction category. Hot springs director Charles Davidson said last week’s announcement was “cause for great pride”. With the hot springs near Rye employing more than 160 people yearround, Mr Davidson said the awards “acknowledge all those people in all our different areas who make it possible to deliver a multi award-winning product”. “Open just seven years, planning for the springs started 15 years ago, now the tourism community and Tourism Victoria have recognised us as a leading attraction at a state level that attracts more than 320,000 people per year to the region,” he said.

Boys cautioned over school break-in FOUR boys aged 11 to 14 have been cautioned by police after breaking into Bittern Primary School and stealing six iPods and nine iPads. Detective Senior Constable Rob Vine, of Hastings police, said the boys had broken a window to gain entry to the school over the 17-18 November weekend. The offenders, three from Bittern and one from Mornington, have

been cautioned by police in the presence of their parents. Detective Vine said some iPads were still missing. He said none of the electronic devices had been fitted with tracking software. Apple, the makers of the iPad, provides Find My iPad services for free. Once activated, the iPad uses its

own GPS to send a signal of its location. A similar tracking device is available for iPhones. Other companies market tracking devices that can silently email photos to an address pre-keyed into an iPad or iPhone. The GPS can be used to pinpoint the location of the devices. Keith Platt

Neighbour alarm over kennel plan Continued from Page 1

The 10 houses are within 500 metres of “Bark Avenue” including the home of former television producer Bob Phillips and his wife, stage and screen star Judy Banks, who present a showbiz program on the peninsula’s radio station RPP-FM. Mr Phillips, best-known as a producer at Channel 9 for Graham Kennedy and Don Lane shows as well as Hey Hey It’s Saturday, said he and his wife were horrified when they received a letter from the shire about the plan. “We bought this property in a quiet, rural part of Bungower Rd about 30 years ago,” he said. “The property next door has been a pleasant horse and cattle property for more than 100 years, but it’s been bought by a vet who intends to create a giant boarding kennel complex.” Mr Phillips said they would vigorously oppose the development and be joined by near neighbours. He was disappointed there had been no consultation with owners of neighbouring properties. “We’re not looking forward to the noise, especially at night and early morning.” Mr Phillips said the entrance to the kennel was inadequate as traffic along Bungower Rd would increase markedly with the opening of the freeway and the nearby on and off ramps. Properties near the kennel would be

devalued. He said information provided by the shire council was inadequate. There was nothing about the kennel’s operating hours, no details of signs or any proposed further development. “Have planning regulations been varied to accommodate a commercial development of this nature in the existing green wedge zone?” Mr Phillips claimed the previous owners of 281 Bungower Rd had been told by the shire they could not develop the property or erect other buildings on the property. He said the area was prone to flooding and no properties had mains water or sewage.

“We had a meeting with [federal MP] Greg Hunt last Friday and he was horrified by the proposal, saying it was out of character for the area. He will write to the shire on our behalf.” The planning application for Bark Avenue is being handled by Keen Planning of Elsternwick and the plans have been created by Therian, a Queensland-based supplier to the pet boarding, veterinary, animal shelter and pound industry sectors in Australia and New Zealand. The companies combined to create a veterinary clinic for the Lost Dogs’ Home in North Melbourne.

Group effort opens beach to all By Keith Platt IN just a year, the Disabled Surfers Association’s Mornington Peninsula branch bank account jumped from $80 to $42,000, enabling it to buy five wheelchairs that can be used on the beach. The wide-tyred wheelchairs will be used at two disabled surfing events next February and March and made available through lifesaving clubs at other times. The disabled surfers branch was formed in November 2011 with $80 and one wheelchair from the association’s national body. The volunteer committee included surfers, non-surfers, people with disabilities and carers. Its plan of action included finding sponsors and training volunteers to help people with disabilities enjoy a day in the surf. The March event saw 20 participants hit the water with the aid of 226 volunteers. Branch secretary Ash Gardner said the group expects up to 90 participants wanting to experience the waves, which means at least 400 volunteers. “People can volunteer in the water or on the beach. There are no skills necessary and it’s not overly physical. If you have the ability to smile and cheer – that’s all you need,” Mr Gardner said. “Aside from beach flags, a small marquee and some surfboard aids, we also have the majority of equipment we need to run our events.” Meanwhile, beach wheelchairs have already been stationed at Pt Leo and Dromana lifesaving clubs with ar-

rangements being made for four more to be distributed throughout the peninsula. The Mornington Peninsula branch was the 15th branch of the Disabled Surfers Association of Australia, started in NSW in 1986 to enable injured surfers to get back into surfing. “However, it was soon realised that it should be open to anyone with a disability,” peninsula branch treasurer John Bowers said. “Our function is to provide a safe surfing experience for disabled people,

giving them access to what we take for granted. “We put smiles on dials of participants and volunteers alike; the community involvement and the response of the participants and families on event days guarantee it.” Mr Bowers said adding in the cost of donated goods brought the association’s first year budget to $50,000. “Our major sponsors have been generous and extremely helpful, starting with a letter I dropped in to Bernie Taylor of the Grand Hotel Mornington.

I couldn’t believe he called for a meeting just after I delivered the letter.” Since that initial offer of support, money for the wheelchairs has come from Mornington Peninsula Shire, the RACV and Railway Signalling Services. A trailer for equipment came from Auswide Trailers and Nepean Waste, with Progress Signs adding sponsor logos. Mornington Peninsula Shire councillors Frank Martin, Bev Colomb, Anne Shaw and Bill Goodrem volunteered for the first surfing event at Pt Leo.

Cr Martin, as mayor, gave the association a large part of the profits raised at the mayoral annual dinner. “We are planning with the council as part of our adopt-a-beach program to place our wheelchairs across the peninsula for year-round access,” Mr Bowers said. Donations from the Mt Martha, Balnarring and Hastings branches of the Bendigo Bank have been used to buy rash vests, marquees, surf aids, surfboards and special wetsuit socks that are specially made to give total body cover for participants with severe disabilities. “Grade six pupils at The Peninsula School ran a fete and donated funds for us to buy special soft surfboards for our events,” Mr Bowers said. He said Pt Leo Life Saving Club had opened its doors on event days for use by the branch, and negotiations were underway with the Department of Sustainability and Environment to create easier access to the club. The Pt Leo Foreshore Committee donated gate receipts on event days and help from the commercial surfing community came from Simon Duff of Mornington Peninsula Surf School, Peninsula Surf Centre and Trigger Bros. The first of two disabled surfing events next year runs 9am-1pm at Pt Leo on Saturday 9 February. Volunteers should take along a wetsuit if available. Registration starts at 8am.

NEALE Burgess is ropeable about the ALP dumping support for an expanded Port of Hastings. “This is the type of backflip and indecision by Labor that saw the Brumby government leave Victoria in a financial mess that rivalled the famous disasters of the Cain-Kirner Labor governments of the 1980s and early 1990s,� he said. “It was not very long ago that [Ports Minister] Tim Pallas visited Hastings to argue that support for BlueScope and the Port of Hastings was vital to the future of the Western Port community. Now he is leading the charge to try and stop it going ahead. “For 11 years Labor argued the Port of Hastings was the only viable alternative to the Port of Melbourne. “[Mr] Pallas made statements in August 2009 including: ‘The Port of Hastings is well positioned to serves as Melbourne’s second container port. No other port location offers the same overall advantages as Hastings and it holds major economic potential for the state of Victoria. The Commonwealth Government has joined with us in recognising the strategic national importance of development at Hastings’.� Mr Burgess said Labor was well aware that the bigger container ships currently in use around the world are already unable to come to Melbourne because they cannot fit through The Heads or channels of Port Philip. “Developing a port anywhere within Port Philip, as is Labor’s current proposal, would once again leave Melbourne seriously disadvantaged against the rest of the world,� Mr Burgess said. “Labor also knows that it is not only the depth of the channel that prevents the bigger ships entering Port Philip, but more so the width of the entrance to the bay. The Port of Hastings has none of these constraints.� Mr Burgess said Hastings had deep water channels that could accommodate “the current and expected larger container ships to be in service after 2025�. “The port has been operational for more than 40 years with no major environmental issues reported in that time.�

It is an incomprehensible decision as it was under Labor that the then Port of Hastings Corporation and its consultants prepared a land use and transport strategy in 2006. Now the ALP says an expanded Hastings port would fail to cope with an expected seven-fold increase in container trade by 2050. Labor’s jobs and investment strategy states it would cost about $12.5 billion to develop Hastings over 15 years. In 2007 then Ports Minister Tim Pallas said it would cost $5.7 billion to expand the port and build transport links over the next 25 years. He trumpeted the benefits for the southeast, Frankston and Mornington Peninsula regions, saying a new port would create more than 4000 local jobs and inject $1 billion into the region’s economy. “By 2015, when primary school children from areas such as Casey, Cardinia and the Mornington Peninsula are ready to enter the workforce, the Port of Hastings will generate almost 2000 jobs in Mornington Peninsula Shire alone,â€? he said. Politicians, government departments and the business community have been debating the relative benefits of Bay West and Hastings for many months. It was reported recently the state Department of Transport had concluded the Bay West option offered “significant potential advantagesâ€?, including ample land, “almost unlimited potential berth capacityâ€? and proximity to Avalon Airport. Some parts of the business community are leaning toward the Bay West option, saying it would reduce the number of trucks on roads, and is closer to the standard gauge national rail freight network as well as freight and logistics centres in Melbourne’s west. Opposition Leader Daniel Andrews reportedly said the Baillieu government’s plan for Hastings was “potentially wasteful and shortsightedâ€?, and the Bay West plan could cost half as much. A comprehensive and transparent cost-benefit analysis needed to be undertaken to test how Bay West compared with other possible sites, including Hastings, he said. Many factors supported Bay West as the appropriate site for Melbourne’s second port. Meanwhile, the Port of Hastings Development Authority, formed at the start of 2012 to replace Port of Hastings Corporation, is pressing ahead on planning for Victoria’s second port at Hastings. Last week it moved to larger offices in Hastings and is hiring six staff including a chief finance officer, a manager of strategic and business planning, and a manager of engineering services and project management. It has hired consultants to prepare three studies: ď Ž A hydrodynamic model of Western Port that will show tides and currents, and potential impacts of port development on the environment.

An ecological risk management assessment. An assessment of different port designs. Environmental groups have consistently called for studies that will assess: ď Ž How an expanded port will affect the environment including Western Port’s internationally recognised wetlands and shoreline. ď Ž The effect on tourism, recreational boating and fishing, and marine education. ď Ž The cost to the health system of illness caused by port-related transport corridor noise and air pollution, sleep deprivation and respiratory illnesses. ď Ž The economic impact of carbon emissions produced by the port development. ď Ž ď Ž

Silly Billy rattles the tax monster’s cage EMU has a mate who hates the Australian Tax Office. Well, so does Emu, just quietly, and even more so does Mrs Emu, who would like to know why they spend her money so appallingly badly, like providing salaries to politicians. Emu thinks everyone hates the tax office, probably including many who work for it, but it is so incredibly powerful that they are frightened to say so. It is more powerful than even ASIO and the Australian Federal Police combined. But Emu thinks his mate might have gone too far. He has – says the mate with a mixture of bravado, pride, apprehension and terror – “pricked the beast”. Recently, deciding to do his tax return online, he became so enraged by the advertised “simple” electronic lodgement procedure that, when he was asked at the end of the ordeal for feedback on the experience, he told them precisely what he thought. First, he says, he railed that the program would not work on his Apple Mac. Then he railed that it would not work on his Windows-run laptop, either, until he updated its software, causing expense and delay. Emu’s mate (let’s call him Bill, since he knew he was going to get one from the tax office) says he then got into his stride. Any software that does not have a Mac version is inherently inferior, he reasoned, and implied inefficiency, laziness and a lack of zeal in its provider. Emu, a Mac aficionado whose machine stutters only when Microsoft software is employed, endorsed this view.

Bill then described in colourful language wading through what he told them was the “electronic swamp” of baffling questions, answering as best he could, when he could understand them. Bill has a good turn of phrase when roused. “They expect us all to become accountants,” he snarled. “Who would want to be an accountant – barnacles on the bum of commerce, one of the original Coles brothers called them.” One feature that best illustrated the power balance between him and the tax office (who can knock down your front door with an axe and take away every bit of paper in your house, including the toilet rolls) was that it took no responsibility for the accuracy of the information it supplied in its automatic data download function. “This,” Bill said, “means that the access they have to your banking details, such as interest earned, which is maintained by the bank, or dividends calculated by the companies that pay them, must be correct, and you have the responsibility of ensuring that they are correct. “You are penalised if the bank or your company secretary gets it wrong.” He wiped his glistening brow. He has been doing that a lot in the past week or two. So, Bill tells Emu, he got really stuck into the tax office, starting by insult-

ing its programmers and warming to his task with a group libel of the entire City of Canberra – not the real world, he says he called it, inhabited by a strange, bespectacled, balding species of bipeds in pale brown cardigans who can recite endless pages of legislation by heart and for whom the Government Gazette is favourite bedtime reading. Then, he says, he got really wound up. At this stage in the monologue he began to tremble. “I told them that I had such trouble with one three-part question – which the program kept telling me I had answered incorrectly and would I please have another go – that I fibbed to get the thing finished.” An awful, possibly fatal, admission. He looked at me pleadingly, as one might look at George Pell for absolution. “Then I told them that ripping my own head off would be preferable to going through this ordeal again.” This shocked Emu, who knew his amiable mate to be of generally sound mind (apart from the peccadillo of being a Collingwood supporter) and kind to children and small animals, and now comprehended the depths of dementia to which the tax process had driven him. He patted Bill’s arm in sympathy. “And at the end of it” – Bill was putty-coloured and almost blubbering now, the awful spectre of axes splintering through doors rearing up over him – “they wanted to know my gender, my age group and where I live. Why did they ask that? I had filled in those details at the beginning of the form. “Are they checking to see if I can remember what I wrote? What kind of monsters are they?”

Emu leaned forward to offer Bill another cool libation, and to assure him that the beast was probably built like a bow-head CHK whale – so bloated and blubbery it probably didn’t even feel the sting of his vitriolic verbal harpoon. But Emu will not be making the same mistake. He has felt, and respects, the

power of the state during several driving incidents, which, though wielded by fluff-faced boys, was implacable in its remorselessness. You don’t muck around with the tax collector or he might just decide to muck around with you. Awesome be the power of the taxman.

Roadsides, our new picnic grounds A CREATURE who lurks behind the shire skirting boards whispered to Emu that “open space” in the shire was becoming an issue. A senior shire apparatchik is bringing a lifetime of ingenuity to the problem. When it was suggested that Martha Cove – that glittering example of shire planning success – was low on open space, the apparatchik retorted

this was untrue. Just look at all that open space called water. Anyone for a picnic on a raft? Remember life jackets for the kiddies. It is believed the same apparatchik defines roadside land as “public open space”. Visitors caught in the next freeway gridlock at McCrae might like to keep this in mind. Just remember to take away your rubbish.

CONGRATULATIONS to Shane Kidgell and Ally Hill on their engagement on 9 November. We wish them many years of happiness together. Love from Don and Ann, Rob and Kerrie, and families.

Tracing history on a wave By Keith Platt PHIL Jarratt knows a bit about the surf culture in Australia and overseas. A prolific writer, Jarratt has for nearly four decades chronicled the ups and downs of surfing, both from the view of a participant and observer. His latest book attempts to bring the disparate parts of the surfing culture together, from the disorganised to the organised. He does not shy away from the seedier sides of what can easily be seen as a separate, parallel culture as he traces its origins and growth in the Australian psyche. With the vast majority of the Australian population living along the continent’s eastern and southern seaboards, it is really the beach, rather than the bush, that represents modern Australian. Based in Noosa, Jarratt believes his Surfing Australia – A complete history of Surfboard riding in Australia provides the first detailed account of surfing in Australia. It follows more than a dozen other books he has written about “surfing’s development as a sport, lifestyle and industry”. Surf beaches and areas that revolve around surfing get a mention through the exploits of homegrown surfers. Jarratt said he wanted to make the book accessible to ordinary surfers like himself (he once made the final of a NSW schoolboys’ event), and to this end one of the appendices of the book is the most comprehensive compendium of Australian contest results ever compiled. “But I never found that schoolboy’s result with my name in it,” Jarratt said. Among the Frankston and Mornington Peninsula surfers who get a mention are former administrators Rob McCartney, Simon Kellett and John Collins; competitors include Carol Watt, Mick Parkinson, Phil Trigger,

Looking back: Phil Jarratt is in familiar waters with his latest book about surfing in Australia.

Rob Licciardo, Warren Partington, Paul Trigger, Gary Burns, Ian Cochrane, Mick Pierce, Phil Coates, Ian Portingale, Alan Tibballs, Peppi Anglis, John Clatworthy, Gary Taylor, Scott Abbott, John Mason, Phil Antonie, Tony Reid, Leigh McClure, Simon Forward, Darren Watson, Mark

Walker, Jan Dunton, Andy Carter, Ray Mathews and Ryan Chalmers. Peninsula Surfriders Club, Mornington Peninsula Bodyboard Club and the Maladiction Longboarders Club also rate a few paragraphs. Surfing Australia is a coffee table book with more than 150 photographs

and forewords by multiple world champion surfers Layne Beachley and Mark Richards. It covers surfing’s pioneering years, from the repeal of the surf bathing prohibition, through the first attempts at standing on surfboards to demonstrations by Hawaiian Duke

Kahanamoku during the First World War, then on through the paddleboard years to the introduction of the malibu performance surfboard in 1956. The book recounts the years of the surfing boom and the development of competitive boardriding leading to Australia’s dominance in the professional era. “I developed this history in conjunction with the governing body of the sport, Surfing Australia, which celebrates its 50th anniversary in 2013, but when I started to write it I realised I had to explain why a bunch of free spirits who rode the waves had felt the need to get organised, and that meant going right back to the introduction of the surfboard,” Jarratt said. He says that while the book details the careers of champions from Midget Farrelly (1964) to Stephanie Gilmore (2012), it also covers the grass roots of the sport, telling the story of how champion clubs developed from car pools, and inter-club meets often ended in brawls on the beach. “Surfing Australia is doing a great job of working in the corporate world to take our sport mainstream, and possibly to the Olympics, but I didn’t want to sanitise the colourful aspects that have helped create the culture and, to its credit, Surfing Australia didn’t want to do that either.” Jarratt, former editor of Tracks magazine and Australian Surfers Journal, also wrote The Wave Game (1977), Mr Sunset (1997), The Mountain & The Wave (2006), Kelly Slater: For The Love (with Slater, 2008), Salts & Suits (2010) and Australia’s Hottest 100 Surfing Legends (2011). The Victorian launch of Phil Jarratt’s Surfing Australia – A complete history of Surfboard riding in Australia will be at Peninsula Surf, 835 Nepean Highway, Mornington, at 5.30pm on 6 December.

‘Eagle’s eye’ moves from sewage to desal THE former Mornington Peninsulabased Clean Ocean Foundation plans to keep an “eagle eye on pollution” along Bass Coast. The foundation is now based in Wonthaggi under the guidance of new CEO John Gemmill. Former CEO James Clark-Kennedy was told by letter in July that his services were no longer required, the day

after its committee had decided the organisation should be wound up. The foundation appears to have survived the early reports of its demise, regrouped and moved the point of its focus from the sewage outfall at Gunnamatta to predicted problems caused by the desalination plant near Kilcunda as well as other ocean sewage outfalls. Mr Gemmill says the foundation will

run a “independent community-based monitoring program on the marine environment in January-February 2013”. “With the assistance of the research vessel SV Pelican, scuba divers from SEAL Diving and community volunteers under the direction of respected marine scientists, the program will use robust scientific methods including GPS-synchronised underwater photo

contacting relevant state government authorities to ensure the operation proceeds smoothly.” Mr Gemmill said the foundation hoped scientific data would be shared with stakeholders “so both the community and the marine environment benefits from the exchange”.

Frankston back on marina money trail By Keith Platt FRANKSTON Council is about to again embark on a search for investors in the $300 million marina earmarked for development between Olivers Hill and Daveys Bay. Impetus for reviving the search abandoned in 2010 follows advice from council’s investment attraction facilitator Jason Sharp that Tourism Victoria’s offer to help finance the retendering the project runs out at the end of the 2012-13 financial year. Mr Sharp’s report on this week’s council agenda says that despite abandoning the tender process in 2010, council officers continued working to gain extra time for the marina from Planning Minister Matthew Guy. “The Cultural Heritage Management Plan has also been completed with a preliminary Indigenous Land Use Agreement negotiated in principal,” Mr Sharp said. Mr Sharp has been at the forefront of efforts to attract investment to Frankston and in September accompanied then mayor Cr Brian Cunial to China as part of a state government Super Trade Mission. The trip had seen Frankston “rejuvenated” as an “investment destination” with “a number of investors” making contact to further discuss the marina. In his report on the 26 November agenda, Mr Sharp said lack of response by potential investors saw the marina project put on ice.

He now wanted officers given the go ahead to “explore and promote the project without prejudice or commitment”. “Mitigating the risks of the project for both council and potential developers was a key learning from the first tender process,” Mr Sharp said. “One of the outstanding risks is the land use agreement. Utilising council’s relationship with the indigenous landowners, a process has been entered into to deliver an agreement on behalf of any future developer. This process is almost complete.” Mr Sharp, while explaining that council faced a $1.5-$2 million budget shortfall, said an extra $5000 was needed to cover the costs of finalising the Indigenous Land Use Agreement. Meanwhile, Frankston Beach Association sees the marina as an “ominous threat” to nearby beaches and a potential cause of bankruptcy of developers. “It is difficult to understand that with so much scientific and engineering evidence to indicate such a marina will result in the total erosion and destruction of the town beach, and Davey’s Bay silting up, that Frankston Council is continuing to pursue a policy for this project to proceed,” the FBA’s spring newsletter states. “It is difficult to understand that when council’s financial advisers state that a 15-hectare marina will not be financially viable, council should advocate building a 22-hectare marina, with no evidence to show that the larger marina will be financially viable.”

Live and scary: Steve Bastoni, centre, and cast members perform War of the Worlds live to air at radio station RPP-FM. During the original broadcast in the United States, many listeners believed the radio play was true and that Martians were invading. Picture: Yanni

War of the Worlds wows ’em PENINSULA radio station RPP-FM celebrated Halloween with a re-enactment of the Orson Wells classic War of the Worlds. In an Australian radio first, the play was brought to life in front of a live studio audience by Steve Bastoni and John Orcsik with teachers and students from Orcsik’s school, TAFTA (The Australian Film and Television Academy). Orcsik, whose TV career started with Cop Shop, said reviving the 74-yearold radio play was a unique and rare experience for the audience and the actors. “Today we concentrate on the visual aspect so much that the vocal quali-

ties have gone,” he said. “The problem is we still have to open and close our mouths to speak and I think this type of stuff is fun, but also great training. It makes you really aware of your voice what you can and can’t do.” Phil Wall and John Wells, hosts of the RPP-FM program Friday on my Mind, were the masterminds behind the broadcast. During the weeks leading up to the broadcast, Wall and Wells spoke live to air with Hollywood actor Ann Robinson, the female lead in the original 1953 Paramount Pictures movie version. Ms Robinson said she was delighted the broadcast was going live-to-air

again after all these years and for the first time in Australia. Station manager Brendon Telfer said the War of the Worlds broadcast would be the first of many radio plays to be performed and recorded by RPP using its state-of-the-art recording equipment and performance studio. Steve Bastoni said he had never done a live radio play but was hooked. “It’s a great opportunity for writers to have a forum for their work and audiences to enjoy it, and we have heaps of talent on the peninsula,” he said. War of the Worlds will be replayed on 14 December between 9-11am on RPP, 98.7 and 98.3 FM.

The real reason angels play harp By Stuart McCullough IF music be the food of love, brace yourself for the worst meal of your life. I have taken up the violin. To just under my chin, as it happens. I had seen other people play the instrument and, to be honest, it looked pretty simple. It only has four strings. How hard could it be? Nero was useless as Emperor of Rome, but even he could knock out a decent tune on the fiddle. I should have been up and running within minutes. As I prised the instrument from its case and lifted the bow, I readied myself to unleash a flood of beautiful music on an expectant world. As it turns out, I can’t play the violin. I don’t know why I thought I could. For some reason or other it just seemed like something I ought to be able to do. But I am wrong. Not just a little bit wrong, but so deeply and profoundly mistaken that there’s really no word for it. In fact, the only way to properly express just how wrong I am is through music. Should you strain your ears and detect something that sounds a little like a mosquito on steroids, that’s me playing my violin. It sounds ugly. If Vincent van Gogh was still with us, it’s the kind of sound that would doubtless provoke him to lop off the other ear. This is not the first time it’s happened. For some reason, I assume I possess a range of skills that fate, genetics and severe laziness have sought to deny me. I used to think I could execute the perfect cartwheel, but, when put to the test, it turns out I’m really only capable of something that looks like a crab attempting to avoid a puddle.

PAGE 26

Nor can I perform a handstand. As soon as my body weight is placed on my arms, they collapse like a house of particularly flimsy cards. The sizeable bruise on my forehead serves as a warning to others of the perils of ad hoc gymnastics. For years, I thought I could speak fluent French. All the signs were there. I’d seen several Inspector Clouseau movies and once owned a beret. Plus, I really like croissants. For years, I wouldn’t think once, let alone twice, about deploying the Gallic tongue when dining at French restaurants and refused to so much as glance at the subtitles when watching French movies. I even listened to

Western Port News 27 November 2012

Carla Bruni’s solo album and was convinced I understood it. Only when I arrived in Paris did I discover that what I believed to be French was, in fact, gibberish. Suddenly, a lifetime’s worth of very poor meals at French restaurants made a whole lot of sense. To say nothing of the fact that there’s a bunch of French movies I need to watch again. I had asked for a violin for my birthday. On receiving it, I had assumed I’d be playing it like a pro within 15 minutes or a half hour, tops. Before I had even opened the case, I’d sent an email to the Melbourne Symphony Orchestra, just to let them know I was coming.

I dismissed suggestions that I should engage a tutor. Frankly, getting violin lessons would only hold me back. The constraints of formal tutelage would slow me down and, worse still, might stifle my creativity. But as I tucked the instrument underneath my chin and ran the bow across the strings, I succeeded not in summoning up the melodies of the angels so much as opening the gates to hell. It sounded absolutely dreadful. It’s a wonder that the next door neighbours didn’t resort to plugging their ears with candle wax. Finally, I feel as though I understand the song Devil Went Down to Georgia by the Charlie Daniels Band. In the song, Beelzebub’s instrument of

choice is the violin rather than a more obvious selection such as the kazoo or piano accordion. I have often heard the term “an instrument of evil” but, until now, never realised this was actually a violin. According to the song, the devil has way too much time on his hands and is prone to wandering around the American south, challenging hillbillies to a kind of musical duel. As you do. There’s a rich tradition within music of people selling their souls to become better musicians – from bluesman Robert Johnson to Celine Dion’s soundtrack to Titanic. However, the protagonist in Devil Went Down to Georgia doesn’t need the devil to make him a good violin player. Rather, “Johnny” agrees to put his soul at stake in the hope of winning a golden fiddle. Perhaps inevitably, Satan is bested by young Johnny and has to surrender his precious instrument. Something of a bad sport, Johnny brags he is the best there’s ever been. Meanwhile Satan, deprived of his violin, is then forced to take up breakdancing instead. If I was challenged to a violin duel right now, I’d be no chance at all of winning. I’m not willing to sell my soul to become a better player, either. I guess I’m kind of stuck – either I give up altogether or start practising. People living next door should invest in high-quality earmuffs. With my bow raised and violin clamped beneath my chin, I feel there is no time to lose. Indeed, I’m reminded of an old French saying: Yoplait pencilmoustache renault stinkycheese baguette. Fitting words. I intend to live by them. www.stuartmccullough.com


FOOD & ENTERTAINMENT

Performance WITH his shaggy blond hair, satin pants and shirt open to the waist, strutting and prancing on stage, Rod Stewart was the quintessence of a rock star in concert in the late 1960s. More than 40 years later, nothing has changed although the satin pants have been replaced by denim jeans. Although he claims to be from Scotland, Stewart was born and bred in North London and attended the same school as Kinks singer Ray Davies. Long John Baldry discovered Stewart and hired him in 1965 for his band. By 1968 Stewart had joined the Jeff Beck Group. Stewart and guitarist Ron Wood became best friends. Wood went on to play guitar with the Small Faces. When singer Steve Marriott left, Stewart joined the band as lead singer. The band dropped the “Small” and became The Faces. The song Maggie May made Rod Stewart’s career, sweeping out of the blue to the top of the singles charts in 1971. The single set the tone for other hit singles including Stay with Me and You Wear it Well. The tracks came from his successful albums Every Picture Tells a Story and Never a Dull Moment. Stewart continued to dominate the charts throughout the late 1970s with hits like Tonight’s the Night, The First Cut is the Deepest, The Killing of Georgie, You’re in My Heart, Do Ya Think I’m Sexy and others.

Poppy’s Problem-solving This year Stewart signed a recording deal with Verve Music Group (Universal) that included recording his first-ever Christmas album, Merry Christmas, Baby featuring guests Michael Bublé, Mary J Blige, Cee-lo Green and a duet with Ella Fitzgerald. “I have always been tempted to do a Christmas album. And now that I once again have young children, the timing couldn’t be better,” Stewart said. “Recording the album gave me a chance to reunite with David Foster.” Merry Christmas, Baby is an album of standards and traditional songs. Stewart is joined by Michael Bublé on Winter Wonderland. We Three Kings is a duet with Mary J Blige and the title tune is a duet with Cee-Lo Green featuring New Orleans’ favourite son Trombone Shorty. Let It Snow! Let It Snow! Let It Snow! features Dave Koz on saxophone and What Are You Doing New Year’s Eve? is a “virtual” duet with Ella Fitzgerald and featuring Chris Botti. The album’s one original track, Red-Suited Super Man, is composed by Rod Stewart, David Foster and Amy Foster and features Trombone Shorty. www.rodstewart.com *** ON 3 December, Australia’s legendary and iconic band The Seekers celebrates its golden jubilee, exactly 50 years to the day since the four original members performed together as a group. Melbourne trad jazz singer Judy Durham started a new job at J Walter Thompson advertising agen-

By Gary Turner cy in Melbourne and met account executive Athol Guy, another musician. He invited Durham to sit in with his mates Keith Potger and Bruce Woodley, who performed together as The Seekers in a little Melbourne coffee lounge called Treble Clef. Fifty years on, The Seekers are still touching the hearts and souls of fans – some who’ve been with them from the very start. A golden jubilee is an extraordinary milestone, especially when The Seekers are still performing and recording in their original lineup. To celebrate the occasion, Judith and “the boys” slipped quietly into the studio mid-2012 to record two new tracks, which open the 50 tracks for 50 years Golden Jubilee Album. The two-CD album was released on 16 November and on 4 December, The Seekers celebrate the milestone in hometown Melbourne where the band was presented with a key to the city in 2006. www.theseekers50th.com www.theinsoundfromwayout.com *** THE musical based on the life story of singing sensation Susan Boyle, starring UK actress Elaine C Smith in the title role, runs for a limited season next year in Melbourne at Her Majesty’s Theatre, and tickets are now on sale. Susan Boyle said: “I am thrilled Australian audiences will have the opportunity to see the incredibly talented Elaine C Smith in Ed Curtis’s amazing production of my official story. “This has been an incredible ride and I hope to have the opportunity to visit Australia again when the production opens in Melbourne in May 2013.” The musical tells the story of Boyle’s life, from her birth and the hand that fate dealt her up to the present day. She was born into a large, working-class family, and shared a three-bedroom council house with 10 family members. Boyle became a global star and an inspiration to millions, a woman who beat the odds and changed the way the world looked at people. I Dreamed a Dream is at Her Majesty’s Theatre for five weeks from Friday 31 May. Tickets from 132 849. Top 10 albums 1. Merry Christmas, Baby – Rod Stewart 2. Take the Crown – Robbie Williams 3.

Sudoku and crossword solutions

I WAS reclining on my back patio contemplating the meaning of life and the ever-increasing price of stubbies when I heard a most unusual sound emanating from my gravel driveway. The sound was a repeated “Crunch ... shhhhrt, crunch ... shhhhrt” and it was getting closer. Granny, who was sitting with Poppy, was alarmed and asked if she should ring the police. I told her not to bother because it was morning coffee time and to go inside and make three cups of cappuccino, one with a single sugar. Granny said she and I did not use sugar, and asked why make three cups of coffee (one with sugar) for the two of us. I told her not to ask questions she did not know the answer to. (Poppy never asks a question he does not know the answer to.) Granny, bosom heaving, asked what was going on because it was a “need to know” situation for her. Carefully, and with great respect, I told her that someone, probably Ricardo, was on his way up the driveway to ask for advice about the gout in his left big toe. The next second, Ricardo limped around the corner of the house wearing a Blundstone workboot on his right foot and a fetching red tartan carpet slipper on his left. I think it was a McDowell tartan. Ricardo said he had gout. What a surprise! He also asked two questions. The first was “do I have to stop drinking?” and the second “what was I going to do to help him?” Poppy’s solution I told Ricardo not to stress and that I had a solution to his problem. I told him he did not need to buy less beer and he was greatly relieved at this. I told him he needed to increase his water intake, and the way to achieve this was for me to visit his place every night and bring six small bottles of water. I explained that I would then ensure that after every stubby, he would drink one bottle of water before having another stubby, and that I would drink every second stubby of his for him to achieve this. I told him that in the interests of his health, and medical situation, that I was prepared to take on this hardship and would perform the task to the very best of my ability. As far as his foot-dragging limp was concerned, I advised him to tell people he had dropped something heavy on his foot. Ricardo was worried that this was not the truth, but I explained to him that sometimes a lie got you in less trouble that the truth, and that that was no lie, it was the truth.

Jewell’s fourth ton as Old Boys chase leather PROVINCIAL By IT Gully SORRENTO’S Nick Jewell smacked his fourth century for the season on Saturday in his team’s monster tally of 8/326 against Peninsula Old Boys. Jewell has amassed 576 runs this season, including 104 in a Jack Peacock Cup game. He began the season with two centuries, before clocking 143 on the weekend. Jewell once again showed he is simply a class above in this competition with the rate he scores. He was the second man out when the score was on 208 after Mick Dunball was rolled for 31 with the score on 115.

Skipper Anthony Blackwell was second-best with the bat for the Sharks with 61, and Liam O’Connor scored 32. Glen Prendergast and John Forrest were the best of the POB bowlers, snaring two wickets each. POB went into the match without Adam Jones, and the Sharks were without opener Jack Falck. Ben Clements continued his blistering return to MPCA cricket on Saturday against Mt Eliza, smashing an unbeaten 99 in Mornington’s 9/248. Anthony Gapes (36) and Rob Hearn (35) were good at the top of the order for the Doggies, and Sam Buchanan was positive in the middle of the innings with 40, but there wasn’t much

else to crow about. Mt Eliza’s bowlers were in charge, Lyle House snaring 6/74 from 21 overs, while Justin Grant took 2/57 from 24 overs. Long Island has a bit of work to do to get the points against Crib Point. Although the Magpies didn’t set the world on fire at the nest, they managed to post 206. Brad Davidson was the best of the home batsmen with an unbeaten 82, and Henry Dolphins scored 38. Andrew Tweddle was the best of the Long Island bowlers with 3/27, Greg Lamb continued his sensational season with 2/58 and Justin Bridgeman chimed in with 2/59. Moorooduc will need to produce something special with the ball after

being rolled by Baxter for 183. The Ducs started well with Luke Sheenan (24) and Shaun Hibberd getting their side away to a great start. However, wickets began to tumble and in the end a score close to 200 was a pretty good result. It was unheralded Baxter bowlers who did the damage with the ball. Although top-liners Adrian Mack, Dale Irving and Trav Sawers took four wickets between them, Ryan O’Donnell, Ben Matters and Leigh Paterson did the bulk of the damage, snaring two wickets each. Paterson had 2/8 off five overs. Like the Ducs, Heatherhill will need to be at their best with the ball to defeat Mt Martha.

Heatherhill was rolled for 185 on Saturday, John Hille top-scoring with 45 and John Hille Jnr scoring 33. Ballam Park was staring down the barrel of another outright defeat when it was bowled out for 114 on Saturday against Rye. However, the Demons collapsed when it was their turn to bat and at stumps were still 18 runs shy of the total with just three wickets in hand. Earlier, Knights’ skipper Matty Roach top-scored with 39 for his side. Tommy Barrand snared 5/38 with the ball for the Demons. When it came to bowl, Matty Roach was at it again, taking 3/30, while Ross Perry snared 3/14. Justin King was Rye’s top-scorer on day one with 34.

Carrum’s bowlers put YCW to sword as Pines set Baden Powell a task DISTRICT By IT Gully CARRUM will be looking to go for the jugular of Frankston YCW on day two of its round five match in MPCA District cricket. The Stonecats have been competitive this season, but were dismissed for just 69 on Saturday against a side that is expected to feature prominently at the pointy end of the season. Carrum’s bowlers were superb, Cory Foster the pick with 4/31 from nine overs. Lachy Dobson was also on fire, bowling 4.1 overs and finishing with the flattering figures of 3/7. Jackson Fry also opened the bowling for the Lions and snared 3/24 from 11 overs. Seventeen-year-old Jack Greenwood was the best of the YCW batsmen with 21, and only two others made it into double figures. The Stonecats were rolled in the 31st over. Shaun Foster then came in and blasted a quickfire 50, while Liam Hulett hit 26 to help Carrum to 6/150 in just 37 overs. Keen to have one last dip at the Stonecats before stumps, the Lions were able to pick up a wicket in the final six overs of the day. YCW will resume on 1/18, still 63 runs short of Carrum’s first innings score. Pines bounced back with a solid batting performance against Baden Powell, managing 8/241. Harley Peace-Sterling hit an unbeaten 70 for the Piners, while Harley Parker was next best with 33. Brett Hudgson and Brett Remy chipped in with 30s to help the score well past 200.

Anjula Perera was the pick of the Braves’ bowlers with 4/73, while fellow tweaker John Harrison snared 2/83. Delacombe Park is in a lot of strife against Boneo. Batting first, the Parkers were rolled for just 129 on their home deck. Chris Williams was sensational for the visitors, claiming 4/41, while Ryan Jellie chipped in with 2/8. Simon Dignan was left stranded at the end of the innings, unbeaten on 34. In reply, Boneo is 1/49 and on target to win a big match. Flinders has Main Ridge in all sorts of trouble at the end of the first day in the twoday match. The home side made 211, Tim Clarke again dominant with the bat with 79. Dwayne Field compiled 45 and Matty Burns 29. Gareth Wyatt was the best of the Main Ridge bowlers with 2/30. Brendan Rossborough, Jason Albress and Brian Jones picked up two wickets each. Field then went about doing some damage with the ball for the Sharks, snaring the first three wickets to have the visitors in trouble at 3/20 at stumps. Field has 3/17. In the final game, Somerville and Langwarrin are poised to fight it down to the wire. The Eagles batted first and with Keith Burdett (66) and Sam Delaney (40) flying the flag, were able to score a more than competitive 216. Dwayne Doig continued his outstanding season for the Kangas with 4/39, and Mal Coutts and Jarryd Amalfi snared two wickets each. In reply, Langwarrin is 0/12.

Quite a dig: Luke Hewitt scored an impressive 26 runs off just six scoring shots as Hastings amassed an impressive 345 against Seaford. Picture: Andrew Hurst

Balnarring bats fire as Tigers look to limit Skye SUB-DISTRICT By IT Gully BALNARRING’S Brenton Taylor went from scoring just 35 runs in three innings to compiling a massive 164 against French Island in MPCA Subdistrict cricket on Saturday. While Luke Chapple was out early for 20, Taylor and keeper Brendan Saker put on 184 for the second wicket, Saker unluckily bowled by Aaron King just one short of his century. Balnarring amassed 7/388 at the

PAGE 30

Robert Thompson Oval on French Island. Ben King was the leading wickettaker for the Islanders with 3/150 off 24 overs, and Jason Matthews picked up 2/60 from 13 overs. Seaford Tigers’ bowlers will need to be at their best when they defend a score of 164 against Skye on day two of their match. Corey Hand scored 52 and Gavin Gardner-Smith 26 for the Tigers, but no other bats offered resistance. Pat Clinch was the best of the Skye

Western Port News 27 November 2012

bowlers with 5/45, and Paul Fillpone snared 3/59. In reply, Skye is 0/26. Pearcedale is in the box seat against Dromana, scoring 9/263. Matt Cousland was up and about for the Panthers with an unbeaten 66, and Brad Trotter opened the innings with a strong 44. Kaine Smith was solid in the middle part of the innings with 39, Shayne Gillings scored 25 and Shane Urbans was back in the whites, scoring 20. Brett Slocombe was the pick of the

bowlers for the Hoppers with 5/74. Tyabb wasn’t fantastic with the bat on Saturday, scoring just 180, but their bowlers came to the rescue late in the day, snaring two wickets to have Carrum Downs in some early trouble at 2/18. Nathan Hudgson has both poles and finished day one with the tidy figures of 2/3. The Yabbies were best served with the bat by Luke Rus, who scored 75, and Josh Hirst scored 46. Chamara Perera was the best of the Cougars’ bowlers with 7/53.

Tootgarook is in massive trouble against Rosebud. The Tooters were rolled for just 146 by their neighbour, Jason Nagel again dominating with the ball, claiming 4/48 for Rosebud. Darren Kerr, Brian Doughty and Jason Pierce picked up a couple of wickets each. The Buds then had 24 overs to teeoff and did just that with Greg McCann belting an unbeaten 70. Darren Kerr up the other end finished the day on 11. Overnight, the Buds are 0/87.

Tons for Watson and Phillips at Seaford HASTINGS CRICKET By Greg Bradshaw HASTINGS travelled to Seaford for a must-win game to keep in touch with the top four. The Blues were sent in to bat, opening with Brad Watson and Carey Sawosz but Sawosz was LBW for 8 in the 9th over, 1/36. Jake Hewitt came and went to a great catch for 4, 2/57 in the 11th over. Scott Phillips joined Watson and they proceeded to blast the Seaford bowlers all over and out of the small Seaford ground. They put together a 144-run partnership before Watson was out for 116, which included 17 fours and 3 sixes, his first century for the club, 3/201 with Phillips on 63. With wickets in hand and still 28 overs to bat Hastings was looking to amass a big total, Luke Hewitt blasted

a quickfire 26 with only six scoring shots including a 7, 4/238, then Tim Birch did similar with 18, 5/268. With Phillips on 84, he took control and reached his century in the 69th over. In the final 6 overs Hastings piled on 50 runs to finish with a massive 8/345 with Phillips 135no. Issy Dias made 17. It’s the first time in four seasons that two hundreds have been scored by the Firsts. Seconds versus Seaford: Looking for a better performance than previous weeks by making four changes to the team, Hastings chose to bat and made a good start with Pat Foy and Dave Craig putting on 45 for the first wicket with Craig making 13. Aaron Vinson joined Foy and they kept the scoreboard ticking over as Foy played some lovely shots, racing to 72. The pair was dismissed within two

overs of each other, 3/114, Vinson 19. Nick Guest and Jason Slocombe combined for 30 runs but momentum was lost when Slocombe was dismissed, 4/144, then 6/154. Guest batted well and reached 42 before being bowled, 7/177 with 18 overs still to go. Wade Delahaye (23) and Greg Bradshaw (16) put on 34 runs, but both lost their wickets and Hastings was bowled out for 215 in the 69th over. Seaford reached 0/6 at stumps. Thirds versus Moorooduc: Hastings batted first with a vastly different side from the one selected. Scott Williams and Lee Attard opened with Attard making 11. Jake Ryan joined Williams and they put on 69 runs before Williams was out for a handy 35. Ryan was batting extremely well and hit 15 fours in his score of 85, 6/203. Some hitting at the end saw Hastings finish with 8/244.

Geoff Assaw made 23 and Danny Jeffs 21. Moorooduc batted poorly against some excellent bowling from Luke Gibbons 4/19 and Kayne Lewis 2/30, both from 10 overs. Moorooduc was 6/53 and seemingly out of the game, but a young fella put his head down and batted the entire innings, making 103no to get Moorooduc to a respectable 7/183. Under-15s versus Dromana: Hastings was sent in to bat and lost only 3 wickets for the morning, amassing a 3/271 off 45 overs. The top order continued its good form from the previous week with Matt Foy making 52 ret, Brodie Prestage 51 and Sean Hewitt 52 ret. Lachy Cox hit his highest score of 39 and Jess Moffatt made a handy 31no at the end. Under-13s versus Mt Martha 3: Mt Martha batted first with Hastings’

bowlers on top at the start as the Mounties struggled to 6/62 in the 27th over. From this point Hastings couldn’t get a wicket and Mt Martha reached 6/126 at stumps. Best of the bowlers was Pat Wilson with 2/17 off 6 overs, Cooper Dehaas 1/9, Ryan McNamara 1/10 and Shelby Lothian-Burdett 1/3. Under-11s versus Mornington 2: Hastings scored 4/84 off its 20 overs with Pat Wilson making 12 ret, Lachy Robertson 10 ret and Matt Dodd 9 ret. Mornington replied with 10/51 with Devlin Webb taking 1/5, Jake Maxted 1/1, Robertson 2/3, Wilson 1/1 and Thomas Finn 1/3. Coming event: Sunday 2 December, Sandown Greyhounds. Bus leaves the club at 12.45pm, $25 a head includes bus. Details and bookings: Jenny Bradshaw, 0411 023 618.

‘Think’ like a fish if you want to catch one ON THE LINE By Paul “Tracker” Pingiaro TO understand fishing, first understand the weather and the patterns and cycles that dictate our climate. Fish are creatures of instinct, they follow the lunar cycle and their mood is dictated by the prevailing conditions and pressure systems. While humans may not be as affected by the weather as fish, we must understand that in the aquatic world 10 metres down is the same as human climbing to 3000 metres. Water has a much higher density that air so temperature changes are more notable as different fish have different comfort levels. While trying to decipher this intricate piscatorial code can take years, anglers can start to break the code by keeping a fishing diary noting date, location, species, bait, water temperature, barometer reading, depth, moon, tide and time fished. Over time you will notice the fish you’re targeting are following patterns in weather and lunar cycles. But remember, fish can be completely predictable or totally unpredictable Where they’re biting James Rodgers of Unreel Fishing Charters (0416 139 814) reports “Port Phillip snapper have been the talk of the town and finally we have reached that magic 17 degrees, which seems to trigger very hungry snapper everywhere”.

“This also triggers the time where the middle of the day and the afternoon bite become very good. This has been evident as many friends and associates have been bagging out in record time every afternoon over the past week. “We have had an amazing stretch of bag out charters. There is nothing quite like the mayhem of having every rod in the boat hooked up at the same time and having big snapper coming in right, left and centre. “Last week areas that seemed to hold the most snapper were from Black Rock to Brighton in 12-16 metres and from Chelsea to Seaford in the same depths with Chelsea, Carrum and Seaford in 15 metres being the go-to areas. “I think this will continue for some time and these areas have held fish in numbers not seen in my life “Of course there are still plenty of snapper in other areas and Frankston to Mornington in 18-19 metres has been quite good. Best baits have been without a doubt humble pilchards with silver whiting and red rockets also good. “Best times have been first light or mid- to late afternoon from around 3-7.30pm. Best methods have been to anchor and burley hard using pilchard pieces, Gotcha’s yellow snapper burley nuts or Zeacols snapper snack nuts. A small handful sprinkled around the boat every 3-5 minutes will soon bring them to the back of the boat provided you’re in the right area. “My prediction for the coming week is to keep an eye on the 13-15-metre

UNLIMITED LOCAL CALLS

line from Frankston to Mordialloc. The whole 19-metre line is currently holding a lot of snapper. “For those who only have an eye for King George whiting, Western Port’s North Arm is loaded. A number of my mates have been doing very well every trip with no particular area standing out over another. “Calamari are patchy from Mornington to Frankston, but are in good numbers at Rye and Sorrento with some great catches around The Sisters between Sorrento and Blairgowrie. “Garfish are still nowhere to be seen from Mornington to Brighton, but we hope they will be coming soon.” For land-locked anglers there are good options. Fish for whiting from the beach between Rye and Mt Martha. Best time is late evening and best baits mussels, pipes and sand worms. From the piers, Mornington is producing mullet and a few squid, Stony Point has a few squid, Blairgowrie has squid and the occasional whiting, and Mordialloc and Brighton have a few snapper at night. Clients of Mornington Boat Hire have been catching snapper to 5kg and flathead to 1kg. Last week also saw the return of squid. Whiting have been a little harder but they are still about and patience is required. For snapper, try in 16-18 metres of water out from the pier and in 12 metres around the mussel farm. For whiting and squid, head over to off Mills Beach and Sunnyside.

All my own “work”: Mikael Persson shows off a 4.8-kilogram snapper.

Jonny at Yaringa Boat Hire reports some great catches last week with quite a few snapper to 4kg and whiting to 45cm. The snapper have been best on the runout tide, while whiting have been good at all times. Other fish caught in Western Port include gummy shark, leatherjacket, salmon, trevally, salmon flathead and mullet. From surf beaches, salmon are about at Mornington Peninsula back beaches as well as Kilcunda.

Tight lines and calm seas. Paul “Tracker” Pingiaro has been fishing since he could hold a rod and stay in the boat. He has boat hire businesses in Mornington and Yaringa Boat Harbour in Somerville. He has been a fishing writer for magazines and brings his knowledge to MP News Group for season 2012-13.

Lights and action: Mark Webb-trained Street Diamond with Peter Mertens aboard overpowers Kimiko and Princess Mossman at Cranbourne on Friday night. Picture: Slickpix

Night racing at Cranbourne a winner ALL looks to be going smoothly at Cranbourne as night racing moves into top gear. The Cranbourne Turf Club’s tricode meeting last Friday night – horse races, harness races and greyhounds – appeared to be a resounding success. “We were delighted with the crowd and everything went according to plan,” chief executive Neil Bainbridge said. “We have developed a supporter base and are looking forward to conducting more successful meetings during the summer.”

The club will hold seven night fixtures and three harness racing meetings between next Saturday and 18 January. The harness meeting on Saturday 8 December will feature the $100,000 Cranbourne Pacing Cup, which has become an important event on the pacing calendar. The race was won last year by American-bred champion Mr Feelgood, who defeated this year’s Inter Dominion winner Im Themightyquinn. To add to the appeal of the meetings the club will offer racecourse entry and a buffet meal for $20 as well as live bands and entertainment. *** THERE is no doubt Cranbourne “boy” Craig Williams is one of the world’s

finest jockeys. Williams demonstrated his ability with a brilliant ride to finish third on Rulership in the Japan Cup on Sunday. Normally an on-pacer, Rulership was slowly away and among the tailenders in the early part of race. But Williams cleverly weaved a passage through the 17-horse field to snatch third place in the last few strides. Now fulfilling a short-term contract in Japan, he will receive a release to ride at the Hong Kong International meeting on Sunday week. He will be aboard Dunaden, who will be trying to win his second successive Hong Kong Vase, and Alcopop in the Hong Kong Cup. Williams partnered Dunaden in his

last to first victory in the Caulfield Cup before finishing 14th when favourite in the Melbourne Cup, when he had legitimate excuses. The eight-year-old Alcopop put himself right into Hong Kong Cup contention when with Williams in the saddle he won the Mackinnon Stakes at Flemington on 3 November. Horse who acquitted themselves over the past week and are worth following are: Monogamy, Burndiniburn, Alpha Proxima, Lucripeteous, Mouro, Chasse, Koe, Kutchinsky, Two Sugars, City Of Song, Tykook, Kitty Cotswold, Hot Lover, Pelicano, Doctor Fremantle, Emboldened and Dane The Rave.

Holden Volt rollout sparks interest HOLDEN dealers in New South Wales are among the first in Australia to take delivery of the Volt long-range electric car this week. Holden’s executive director of sales and marketing Philip Brook said there had been strong interest in Volt since dealers were announced in June and television advertising had begun. “Volt really seems to have captured people’s imagination thanks to its range extension technology. As the first car of its kind to go on sale in Australia, drivers want to understand how the technology works and what it feels like to drive and live with an electric car. “Now that the dealers have a permanent demo on hand, customers will be able to experience the unique technology of Volt.” As part of the commitment to become a specialist dealer, each Holden Volt dealer has invested in training and equipment and has committed to achieving environmental accreditation. They have also installed a dedicated Volt charging station in both the sales and service areas. Potential customers can find the nearest Volt dealer via the Holden website. A fully interactive website offers an in-depth look at the technology at www.holden.com.au/volt
