Spring for democracy

Elections across whole peninsula

Back to the grind:

Alan Mott has decided to come out of retirement and re-enter the workforce at the age of 85. Read his story on Page 5. Picture: Yanni

By Mike Hast DEMOCRACY is alive on the Mornington Peninsula with 43 candidates vying for places in the shire’s six wards at this month’s election. It’s a far cry from the previous spring election in 2008 when six of 11 seats were uncontested, with five councillors returned unchallenged and one, this year’s mayor Cr Frank Martin, not even facing the voters. Cr Martin took over from the retiring David Jarman in Red Hill Ward and was not opposed. The 43-candidate list is vindication of the Victorian Electoral Commission’s decision to redraw the ward boundaries and create three multicouncillor wards from eight single-councillor wards on the more populous, Port Phillip side of the municipality. Of the 43 candidates, 33 are standing in the three new multicouncillor wards between Portsea and Mt Eliza (see map on Page 4). Nepean Ward between Portsea and Rye has eight candidates seeking the two seats. Seawinds Ward from Tootgarook to Safety Beach has 14 going for three seats. Briars Ward from Mt Martha and Mt Eliza has 11 people chasing three seats on the council. The three wards on the Western Port side stay as singlecouncillor areas. The VEC in January recommended the changes, which

were accepted by the state government. They were designed to ensure “fair and equitable representation”, according to VEC boss Steve Tully. Mr Tully telegraphed the changes last October during a public hearing into the electoral structure of the shire. He had expressed concern over the uncontested seats in 2008, revealing the shire had six of 45 in Victoria, 13.3 per cent of all uncontested wards across the state’s 79 municipalities. During a vigorous lobbying campaign, the shire council, led by CEO Michael Kennedy with the full support of all 11 councillors, said the six uncontested seats were proof the single-councillor system was working. Many residents disagreed, saying dislodging sitting councillors was a difficult task and getting action from some councillors was sometimes a problem. Despite 2008 having only five contests, four new councillors joined the shire – Frank Martin replaced David Jarman at Red Hill, Lynn Bowden replaced the retiring Aldona Martin in Watson Ward (Somerville and Tyabb areas), Graham Pittock replaced the retiring Dave Gregan in the Dromana area, and Leigh Eustace replaced Reade Smith, who moved from Mt Eliza Ward where he had been since the 2000.

Western Port News 2 October 2012

Surf a topic for Shoreham group SHOREHAM is a laidback sort of place, with houses built among trees or alongside farmed paddocks. It is usually a quiet backwater. There is no central shopping centre or major sporting complex. Its residents help out with community projects, replanting public lands and keeping a watchful eye on developments that might change the area’s character. But if a sizeable southwesterly swell in Western Port coincides with a rising tide and appropriate offshore wind, Shoreham is a major drawcard for one particular segment of the wider community – surfers. Waves breaking at The Pines, Honeysuckle Point and nearby Second Reef (really Point Leo) will be dotted with surfers, no matter which season. Of the three breaks, The Pines attracts the biggest crowd. It is sheltered, cars can park beachside and the wave breaks as if produced by a machine. It can be the perfect right-hander. In acknowledgment of Shoreham’s links to surfing, Shoreham Community Association’s first annual meeting will feature speakers “reminiscing on the highlights of surfing at Shoreham and surrounds, past and present”, management committee member Steve Dolman said. One of those surfers, vice-president Rob Patrick, said “surfboards have changed a lot over the past 50 years, the thrill of surfing hasn’t”. The meeting will also elect a committee for the coming year and receive reports on the association’s activities. It will be followed by a barbecue. Shoreham Community Association’s annual meeting, 11am Sunday 14 October at the Old School Hall, Byrnes Rd, Shoreham. Information and membership renewals at www.shoreham.vic.au

Point perfect: Rob Patrick surfing the classic right-hander at The Pines, Shoreham, in the 1960s.

Surf talk: On Monday, it was easy to find common ground for surfers Jim Smith of Frankston and Rob Patrick of Shoreham when checking the waves at The Pines Beach, Shoreham.


Injured pair on critical list

Crossing death WORKERS from Mornington Peninsula Shire trimmed roadside plants the morning after a woman died after being hit on a pedestrian crossing by a four-wheel drive. The 73-year-old Balnarring woman was airlifted to The Alfred hospital last Tuesday afternoon after being treated by ambulance officers where she was hit in Marine Parade outside the shire offices. Police said she died after being admitted to hospital. The 39-year-old driver of the four-wheel drive lives in Mornington. Police on Monday said they were still investigating the circumstances of the collision, but had ruled out excessive speed. They were “looking into” the height of the plants in the strip between the foreshore parking area and Marine Parade.

By Jo Winterbottom A 53-year-old Hastings woman remains in a critical condition in intensive care at Monash Medical Centre after she was found with serious injuries in thick scrub at the side of Hodgins Rd on Monday 25 September. Police are also waiting to speak with a Rosebud man who remains unconscious and in a critical condition with severe head injuries more than two weeks after he was bashed and left by a rubbish bin in Empire Street Mall, Mornington. Hastings police hold grave fears for the woman after her condition worsened over the weekend. Detective Leading Senior Constable Darren Sherren said she had been grocery shopping and was on her way home when the suspected assault occurred near the corner of Hodgins Rd and Victoria St about 12.30am on Monday 24 September. The woman may have been lying in the bushes for up to an hour before she was found by a man and woman who heard her calls for help. It was not known how her injuries were sustained and police had been unable to speak with her. Detective Sherren said the woman was wearing Ugg boots, dark-coloured tracksuit pants and a cream hoodie at the time she was attacked. Meanwhile, Mornington police are seeking a witness to the brutal attack of the 28-year-old house painter, who was bashed by two men about 3.45am on Sunday 16 September, shortly after leaving the Bay Hotel in Mornington. Detective Senior Sergeant Rohan Brock of Mornington crime investigation said video footage showed a man who may have seen the attack from about 15 metres away. Members of the police search and rescue squad were due to search Empire Street Mall today (Tuesday), concentrating their efforts on the roofs of buildings fronting the mall, in the hope of finding new evidence linked to the attack. Anyone with information on either crime can contact Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000 (free call), Hastings CIU on 5970 7800 or Mornington CIU on 5970 4900.

Elections in all wards Continued from Page 1

Cr Smith, who announced many months ago he would not stand in 2012, contested the Hastings-based Cerberus Ward, vacated by Brian Stahl, who was first elected to the Shire of Hastings in 1987. (Dave Gregan died at his home in Dromana on 13 October 2009 at age 73 after battling cancer. He was Kangerong Ward councillor for three years, but even after leaving the council fought for his community, co-founding the Association for Building Community in Dromana.) The council election for 2012 will be conducted by postal voting. The shire’s 144,733 voters (the third largest municipality in Victoria says the VEC) will have ballot packs mailed to them on 9-11 October. They must be returned by 6pm on Friday 26 October. On Saturday 27 October, VEC computers will count the votes and preferences, and declare results. If you do not receive a ballot pack and are sure you are on the voting roll or have any queries about the election, visit the VEC at Shop 2, 1391-1395 Point Nepean Rd, Rosebud (opposite Kmart Auto in the Rosebud Plaza Shopping Centre car park) or call 5981 1339 during office hours. The returning officer for the election is Julie Allan.

Port ‘OK’ despite wharf closure By Mike Hast THE revelation that Patrick Stevedores is paying off its last 34 wharfies has forced the state government to defend its expansion plans for the Port of Hastings. Patrick operates a roll-on, roll-off wharf and conventional timber wharf north of Long Island Point for BlueScope Steel’s Western Port works. The News reported on Tuesday 25 September the wharf would fall silent in November after the last steel-carrying ship left Hastings and stevedores were paid off (‘Wharf era comes to a close’). It will be the end of an era as there have been wharfies at Western Port since the 1960s. This was when industrial development began that saw the construction of Lysaghts steel-making plant (bought by BHP and later BlueScope), Esso’s gas refractionation plant near the steel plant, BP’s oil refinery and jetty at Crib Point, and port infrastructure at Stony Point. Last Friday and again on Monday, Ports Minister Denis Napthine told The Age newspaper the government, through its Port of Hastings Development Authority, was pushing ahead with plans to turn Hastings into Victoria’s second container port. Both the previous (Labor) government and the Baillieu Coalition government agreed Hastings was the logical port to expand as the Port of Melbourne neared capacity. It moved 2.58 million containers in 2011-12, but Victoria is predicted to see eight million containers moved each year by 2030. There is insufficient space for such activity at Port of Melbourne, even with the recently announced expansion of Webb Dock.

Dr Napthine reportedly said that while stevedoring at Hastings was ending later this year, the port development authority had started early assessment and planning reports for the project. The authority advertised for six new staff members in late August – a chief finance officer, strategic planning manager, engineering manager, and three project officers. It is fitting out the first floor of an office building on the corner of High and Kings streets in Hastings, above a real estate office. Dr Napthine said the government was proceeding as planned, exactly on track, with plans to develop Hastings as a new container port for Melbourne and Victoria. A majority of transport industry experts believe the Port of Melbourne should remain where it is and not become a residential area, as has been suggested. Geelong should continue as a bulk port. When completed in about 2015, Webb Dock would take some of the pressure off docks further up the Yarra River. Hastings would come online as a supplementary container port in about 2030. Maritime Union of Australia officials are bitterly disappointed with Patrick’s plans to pay off the last wharfies at Hastings. One wharfie, who spoke on the condition of anonymity, said it would be a further blow to Hastings and the wider peninsula after last year’s loss of 270 jobs after the closure of BlueScope’s hot strip mill. “Thirty-four workers might not sound much, but they spend money in Hastings and live in Hastings, Bittern, Mornington, Mt Martha, Rosebud and Frankston,” he said.

Back on the tools at 85 By Peter McCullough EXPERIENCED tradesman Alan Mott of Hastings recently placed a small advertisement in The News for Al’s Jobbing Shop. There appeared to be nothing unusual about this until you discover Mr Mott is aged 85. The advert was the first step in a return to work that had been forced on him by financial circumstances. Mr Mott was born in West Melbourne in 1927. He went to local schools, finishing at Footscray Tech where he completed his Intermediate Certificate. He started an apprenticeship in fitting and turning at a paper mill in Fairfield where his brother had also trained. After the paper mill he went to the Commonwealth Aircraft Corporation in Lorimer St, Port Melbourne, to gain more engineering experience in machinery. Sir Lawrence Wackett was running the corporation. Mr Mott worked in the machine shop for 15 years on non-destructive testing, including working on Avon, and Pratt and Whitney aircraft engines. Next he worked for Keep Brothers and Wood as a sales representative mainly selling automotive parts. After about six years he started his own business, Ezyspray Manufacturers, making hand-operated spray guns. Growing up in Footscray, Mr Mott was a scout and scout leader for many years. Other interests included squash and barracking for Footscray; he witnessed the Bulldogs’ one and only premiership win in 1954. As a young man, he had a girlfriend named Gwen but they drifted apart and married other people. Gwen was married with three children when one day she happened to meet Mr Mott’s mother and mentioned she was looking for work; this led to her working in Mr Mott’s office. His marriage had ended some years before and, three years after meeting Gwen again, they married, 34 years ago. After living at Mt Waverley, the Motts moved to a small property in Island View, Tyabb, where they spent 26 happy years. During this time Mr Mott renewed the interest

in aircraft he had developed in his CAC days. He joined Peninsula Aero Club, bought a Cessna 150 and learned to fly, later upgrading to a four-seater Cherokee Cruiser. He flew about 1000 hours before being grounded about 10 years ago because of a heart condition. The past few years have not been happy ones for the Motts. Gwen developed Alzheimer’s disease, which saw the sale of their home to raise the money to get her into a nursing home. Mr Mott lives in a unit in Hastings and visits Gwen daily in her Somerville accommodation. Other family difficulties have motivated Mr Mott to come out of retirement. One of his son-in-laws had a furniture franchise that folded due to the economic climate. This put the son-in-law and a grandson, who did the furniture deliveries, out of work, but both have joined Mr Mott in his new business. He has leased a small factory in Tyabb and bought a new lathe, milling machine, welder and drilling stand. Al’s Jobbing Shop is a small engineering business, specialising in making or repairing parts for aircraft and vehicles, with non-destructive testing a specialty, but willing to tackle jobs of all sorts. “My return to the workforce at 85 is mainly due to financial reasons, but I’m keeping active and doing work that I’ve always enjoyed,” he said.

Witnesses add to wars’ death toll A PLAY on the words and images that daily provide insights into wars around the world brings home the often deadly job of the war correspondent. The play Bare Witness by Mari Lourey, directed by Nadja Kostich, deals with the real-life experiences of photojournalists as they grapple with complex moral and physical challenges of reporting from war frontlines. It will be performed at the Frankston Arts Centre on Friday 19 October at 8pm. Set in the Balkans, East Timor and Iraq, Bare Witness follows a team of complicated, flawed characters who share the unbreakable bond of war photojournalists and scrutinises the way we view our humanity through the fragmenting lens of the media. Bare Witness is a theatrical approach to a topic to which the public has become desensitised. “This is a play where audiences always leave talking about the world,” Lourey said. “More journalists have died in Iraq than Australian soldiers. “This play shines a light on the changing world of war correspondents where once they were protected and now they have become a part of the story.” The play takes audiences on a journey into the disintegrating mind of the main protagonist Dannie (played by

AFI award-winner and former Mornington Peninsula resident Daniela Farinacci) as she re-lives her experience as a war photographer. “Researching this play, I became intoxicated with the world of photojournalism. What makes someone become a foreign correspondent or photographer, mostly always with enormous personal consequences, is at the heart of my writing this play,” Lourey said. “I also wanted to pay tribute to their courage in telling the real story of people’s struggle and suffering.” Developed over several years, Bare Witness received the 2005 R E Ross Trust Script Development Award and was shortlisted for the Patrick White Playwrights’ Award in 2008. Director Nadja Kostich’s has been praised for her treatment of the play. “I worked on a score with the actors and creative team that is a meld of images, human and instrumental sounds and physical movement,” she said. “The chasm between this impressionistic interpretation and the narrative of the script makes for a sometimes uncomfortable tension that mirrors the extremes of the world the characters inhabit.” Bare Witness, Frankston Arts Centre, 8pm Friday 19 October.

Shiva Ashram opens its gardens for first time MT Eliza’s Shiva Ashram, better known for yoga and meditation, opens its extensive gardens for the weekend mid-October, as part of the Open Gardens Australia scheme. A suburban oasis spanning 2.4 hectares (six acres), the gardens feature a series of distinct areas connected by agapanthus-lined paths, unrecognisable from the vacant horse paddocks of 17 years ago. “The gardens, maintained by volunteers, are a true labour of love,” said Swami Shankarananda, director of the ashram. “Nature and spirituality are one; through nature we experience harmony, joy and peace. “Meditation is to seek inner harmony and peace, and when you have outer circumstances full of beauty and tranquillity, it supports

meditation. Some of the most beautiful gardens I’ve seen have been attached to ashrams and monasteries. Gardens outwardly express the inner harmony of the soul.” Highlights include a Japanese Zen garden, giant chessboard, a native garden honouring the Boon wurrung, a lily pad-covered lake that is home to ducks, an organic permaculture vegetable garden that supplies the ashram, and a colourful cottage garden with a young magnolia grandiflora. There is also the interfaith walk, inspired by 9/11 in an effort to encourage peace among all religions. The walk was planted in 2011 by young people of many different faiths attending an Interfaith Youth Retreat at the ashram. There is a

circular walk around the dam and the walk includes gardens and icons representing the five major faiths of Islam, Judaism, Hinduism, Buddhism, and Christianity. Plantings and the colour palette are synonymous with the particular faith represented and provide an opportunity for contemplation and connection. Highlights of the open weekend include lunch, afternoon tea, yoga demonstrations, learn to meditate sessions, live music and plant sales.  Shiva School of Yoga and Meditation open garden, 27 Tower Rd, Mt Eliza, 10am-4.30pm, Saturday 13 and Sunday 14 October. Entry $7, under-18s free (proceeds to charity). Details: 9775 2568, askus@ shivayoga.org or www.shivayoga.org

MP agrees to face planning critics HASTINGS MP Neale Burgess is going to Balnarring on Saturday to explain the state government’s approach to planning on the Mornington Peninsula. He will be speaking to members of Balnarring Beach Ratepayers’ Association committee who have signalled their opposition to what they see as “risky� changes to planning laws flagged by Planning Minister Matthew Guy. However, Mr Burgess has already stated that the coalition government will “implement a Mornington Peninsula-specific planning policy designed specifically to protect the peninsula�. In a submission to Mr Guy, the association said the peninsula “deserves� a separate planning scheme that “recognises our special combination of tourism, farming, green wedge, physical landscape and small village residential areas such as Balnarring and Balnarring Beach�. The association said changing the present planning laws could be “disastrous for villages like Balnarring and Balnarring Beach�. “Where tourist infrastructure is extended we want the best, most attractive and appropriate developments with proper planning protections not ‘as of right’ provisions with no appeals as envisaged in the new proposals,� the association stated. “We are particularly concerned that our community should continue to have a voice in matters that affect them. We are worried that the new proposals would remove key decision-making from local government hands where voters have an influence, to the planning ministry with its statewide ‘one size fits all’ managerial role. “The new zoning proposals will create anger and dismay because they are piecemeal, allow encroachment into residential areas and remove rights from the community.�

OPINION

NEALE ADAMS

The Western Port Whisperer TALK about grabbing a tiger by the tail and having it bite back. Flinders MP Greg Hunt has been a bit tied up in an embarrassing gaff about an animal that is extinct as opposed to one that is merely threatened. Mr Hunt, who is also Opposition environment spokesman, wrote to Environment Minister Tony Burke seeking guarantees of protection from mining for Tasmanian tigers. No doubt not quite believing his luck at getting an unusual free kick from Mr Hunt, Mr Burke was quick to reply (making sure his reply hit the airwaves and the printing presses). â&#x20AC;&#x153;I am pleased that both you and the Liberal Party have finally started to take an interest in protecting animals,â&#x20AC;? Mr Burke wrote. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I am sorry that you have chosen animals that are extinct. â&#x20AC;&#x153;If, however, you have discovered healthy Tasmanian tigers then I urge you to report your findings immediately to the Tasmanian Department of Primary Industries, Parks, Water and Environment and the World Media. [Mr Burkeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s capitals.] â&#x20AC;&#x153;Please keep me advised of any information that comes to hand on the Sabre Tooth Cat, the Dodo bird and any recent dinosaur footprints.â&#x20AC;? It was signed â&#x20AC;&#x153;Yours sincerely Tony Burkeâ&#x20AC;?. Mr Hunt explained his slip by saying he was preoccupied with his footy team, the Richmond Tigers, and had really meant to express concern for the Tasmanian devil, which is under threat from disease and loss of habitat. However, he was ever hopeful of the return of both types of tiger: the ones with a tail and the ones without glory. ** * POLITICIANS canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t be everywhere at once, but they can try. At least thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s what they seem to have been doing if you look at their taxpay-

for Red Hill Ward

er-funded newsletters. The â&#x20AC;&#x153;newsâ&#x20AC;? they deliver is, of course, all about themselves or whichever party or government they represent. Here in Western Port, Flinders MP Greg Hunt publishes Flinders Community News. The autumn 2011 edition had 23 photos featuring Mr Hunt, including him on a trapeze, â&#x20AC;&#x153;celebratingâ&#x20AC;? reduced speed limits at Mt Martha, helping out in flood-ravaged Skipton and skipping with schoolchildren at Newhaven. In the neighbouring electorate of Dunkley, his Liberal Party colleague Bruce Billson (although Liberal is not the word frequently used in their newsletters) has sent out the September 2012 Dunkley Report, which has him featured in 19 photos. In the cover shot Mr Billson is making a point in parliament, seemingly keenly watched by Opposition leaders Tony Abbott and Julie Bishop and a laughing Christopher Pyne. Elsewhere in his report Mr Billson appears with former leader Malcolm Turnbull pretending to mail a letter in an old-fashioned letterbox in Mornington (Mr Turnbull was in Rosebud with Mr Hunt last week to discuss the broadband network). Mr Billson is seen with Frankston state MP Geoff Shaw (who is awaiting an Ombudsmanâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s report into his alleged misuse of a parliamentary vehicle) and looking at a business owner pointing toward where he doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t want a telecommunications tower. Mr Abbott also appears alongside Mr Billson in a couple of other shots. While both newsletters provide a record of some of the photo ops generated by the activities of our MPs, the Whisperer canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t help wondering if their inclusion of Mr Turnbull is strategic, just in case the unmentionable happens and the Libs decide to make a change at the top before next yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s federal election.

The broadcast that alarmed the world IN an Australian radio first, the peninsula’s community station RPP-FM will recreate the legendary War of the Worlds radio broadcast on Halloween, Wednesday 31 October. Helping promote the broadcast will be one of the stars of the 1953 movie, Ann Robinson, who will be interviewed this week on RPP’s Friday on My Mind program, hosted by Phil Wall and John Wells. On Sunday 30 October 1938, millions of American radio listeners were shocked when radio news alerts announced the arrival of Martians. They panicked when they heard about the Martians’ ferocious and seemingly unstoppable attack on Earth. Many ran from their homes screaming and others packed up their cars and fled. What listeners heard was a portion

Shocked a nation: Ann Robinson, the female lead in the original 1953 Paramount Pictures movie of War of the Worlds. Inset, Gene Barry and Ann Robinson in the movie.

of Orson Welles’s adaptation of the book War of the Worlds by H G Wells. This was before television – radio was the main form of entertainment with millions of people sitting around their radios listening to drama, comedy and music shows. Seventy-four years after the Halloween blockbuster sent shock waves across America and the world, RPPFM will faithfully recreate the historic radio drama. The show will be a special event from the Friday on My Mind team, who earlier this year presented a Cop Shop reunion show. “The Halloween broadcast will be amazing,” Phil Wall said. “It will be in front of a live audience in the station’s BlueScope performance studio and we have a great director in Colin Budds as well as John Orcsik and his team from The Australian Film and Television Academy. “On Friday morning we’ll be joined live from Hollywood by Ann Robinson, the female lead in the original 1953 Paramount Pictures movie version of the story. “It will be incredible having Ann on the show. She was a member of one of the most iconic War of the Worlds episodes,” John Wells said. Ann Robinson was a stunt horse rider and then actor whose first leading role was as Sylvia Van Buren in the War of the Worlds. Other films followed and she also starred opposite Jack Webb in the radio and television series Dragnet, between 1947 and 1970.  Friday on My Mind is on 9-11am Fridays on RPP-FM 98.7 and 98.3.

MARKET PLACE

Charm of a bygone era

Bay and island vistas

RECREATING the characteristics of a classic period in Australian architecture, this New England-style homestead has broad verandahs from which to watch the sunrise and high ceilings that feature gable windows and allow for handy attic space. The home sits amid open lawns on a 8092-square metre (two-acre) block flanked by tall native trees on all sides that form the property boundary. The main living area is set across two levels with a step-down lounge surrounded by balustrades and highlighted by a charming bluestone fireplace. For convenience there is a reverse-cycle air-conditioner. Slate tiles give the remodelled kitchen and dining area an extra lift and there are quality stainless-steel appliances including a 900mm underbench oven and dishwasher. The home has three bedrooms, and from the main bedroom there is access to the bathroom. Outside is a massive timber deck that overlooks the grounds and extends to form a timber path leading to a huge garage and entertainment complex with concrete slab, gantry, power and bar.

SET on a large, elevated allotment of 1040 square metres, with a pathway from the garden leading down to the beach, this spectacular property has a wonderful backdrop with some of the best water views on the peninsula. The double-storey brick and timber home has a flexible floor plan across all levels. From the entry foyer, there is an enviable choice of where best to sit and watch the activities of Western Port Bay. A formal sitting room has an open fireplace and sliding doors out to the balcony. The dining area also has an outlook, with a well-appointed kitchen close by. At the top of the upstairs landing is a separate study. The main bedroom with adjacent bathroom is downstairs and there is a nice sitting area, a place to enjoy a good book. A second bedroom also has an ensuite. On the ground floor is a huge, open-plan games room and a third bathroom. There is a tremendous amount of storage space underneath the home and if more space is required, you can utilise the single garage and carport.

Discover your style By Natalie Garner WITH spring fast approaching, it’s time to renew, reassess and redefine yourself for the new season. It’s often with a heartfelt sigh that I face a wardrobe filled with black, grey and brown at the end of a long winter season and feel that I need to search for something new. Sometimes it’s great to consider visiting a new place to shop, rather than just hitting the same big shopping complexes or the computer. Many people often feel they can’t visit a shopping strip (unless its Chapel St or central Melbourne), because they won’t get the variety. But this is often not the case, and certainly not the case with Sorrento. If you’ve never been to Sorrento or haven’t been for a while, it’s time to rediscover. You’ll be amazed at the breadth of choice in fashion, accessories, beauty and wellness (not to mention all the fabulous eateries, galleries and unique homewares stores). When it comes to fashion, Sorrento offers more than just a group of retailers. Sure, it has a number of high-calibre fashionable chain stores such as Mimco, Witchery, Brown Sugar, Seed, Cinori, Blue Illusions, Sportsgirl and Gazman, so there’s no need to only consider city shopping centres in your search for something you’ve seen in a catalogue or online. But there are also about 15 fashion, surfwear and accessories stores that are either unique to the village or unique to the Mornington Peninsula. If you want an opportunity to speak to the person who actually does the buying, who can offer advice on latest trends, who can customise an outfit to meet your needs and who can offer you something different to wear, then Sorrento is the place to go. Shopping should be an enjoyable experience, where you are treated like an individual, not just an email address or another sale.

SPECIAL OFFER – STYLING WORKSHOPS AND PERSONAL SHOPS Get ready for the new season and learn how to look your best at Sorrento’s Style workshops by image and style consultant Julie Hyne. Julie has more than 25 years of industry experience and says: “It’s not about age, or how much money you have to spend on your look, it’s knowing that everything you have placed on your body is working in perfect harmony with your shape, colouring and personality.”

To celebrate the centenary of her birth, we have 3 beautiful new books. The Silver Brumby Centenary Edition By Elyne Mitchell $32.99 This lovely big paperback contains four stories including Silver Brumby, Silver Brumbyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Daughter, Silver Brumbies of the South, and Silver Brumby Kingdom. Great value for money, and it looks beautiful too.

Elyne Mitchell - A Daughter Remembers by Honor Auchinleck $32.99 This poignant memoir by Honor remembers her extraordinary upbringing in the Australian Alps, and pays tribute to her remarkable family, and in particular her adored - and elusive - mother.

On the Trail of the Silver Brumby $49.99 ea

This is a truly stunning book.

CALENDARS & DIARIES FOR 2013 Once again we have the lovely Mornington Peninsula Calendars and Diaries from local photographer Alison Glen, who also provided the beautiful pelican shot featured on our Petersen's bookmarks. These are in store now - so grab them before they run out.

Calendars are $34.95, and Diaries $24.95.

LATEST MILITARY TITLES EXIT WOUNDS by Major General John Cantwell $34.99 John Cantwell enlisted in the army as a private in 1974 and rose to the rank of major general. He was commander of Australian forces in Afghanistan in 2010 when ten of his soldiers were killed. He came home in 2011 to be considered for the job of chief of the Australian Army. Instead, he ended up in a psychiatric hospital. This is an absolutely compelling story of war told from the top - raw, candid and eye-opening.

LOST BATTLEFIELD OF KOKODA by Brian Freeman $32.99 Since 1943, only the villagers of Alola - perched high LQVRPHRIWKH.RNRGD7UDLOÂśVPRVWGLIÂżFXOWWHUUDLQKDG NQRZQDERXWDORVWEDWWOHÂżHOGRIWKH6HFRQG:RUOG:DU the location of a bloody encounter between advancing Australian forces and retreating Japanese.

Part military history, part archeological mystery, part exciting adventure, this is the story of that long-ago battle - how it was both lost and found.

SANDAKAN by Paul Ham $49.95 This is the story of the three-year ordeal of the Sandakan prisoners of war, as told through the experiences of many of the participants. Of the 1000-plus prisoners sent on the Death Marches, only six - all of them Australians - survived. Paul Ham has interviewed the families of survivors and the deceased, in Australia, Borneo and Britain, and consulted thousands of court documents in an effort to piece together exactly what happened. An important and harrowing book.

Travels with a slightly effeminate Humphrey Bogart By Stuart McCullough I’D never thought about it much. For the most part, my walls were covered with wallpaper. The chosen pattern, selected in a moment of panic, was of light blue cricketers. This would have made sense if I was fond of either cricket or Smurfs, but as I was not particularly drawn to either, it was simply misleading. No one else had panicked when picking wallpaper. Of my brothers, Cameron chose motorbikes and Lachlan selected spaceships. My sisters chose Holly Hobbie. Only I acted in haste. When I moved out of home, I left behind a lot of things, including the wallpaper. In my first year at uni, I lived on campus in a residential college. I quickly learned that you were expected to decorate your room. This was not so much an aesthetic exercise as one of identification – your room had to explain what kind of person you were. Due to limitations in budget and space, this was mostly done by way of posters. Some students chose posters of their favourite bands as a means of nailing their colours to the mast (not literally – you were only allowed to use BluTack). I remember one student having a giant poster of The Pogues and me, having only been exposed to commercial radio with dodgy reception courtesy of an aerial held together by sticky tape, having no idea who they were. Only those with a love for a certain kind of rock expressed their passion in poster form. It was common to see posters of The Smiths, even though they’d already broken up. But despite it being the early 1990s, I can-

not recall ever encountering a poster featuring Vanilla Ice, Colour Me Badd or Mr Mister at any time during my tertiary education. Some students preferred “political” posters. These were usually in support of some kind of rally and always demanded “action”. What kind of “action” was generally left to the imagination. The students who favoured their politics in poster form were always very serious and gave the impression of knowing something you didn’t about the world and how it operated.

Which, at that time and probably still, was likely to be so. Older students had posters that were souvenirs of earlier campus events including plays and sporting events and, in particular, university balls. These were grand occasions at which bands – lured by an appearance fee that factored an element of “danger money” – agreed to play in front of a hall full of students determined to drink their money’s worth. It was my first time living away from home and for the first few weeks, the walls of my room were as blank as

my mind. Here I was, surrounded by students who – if they had ever heard of Tyabb – had probably only driven through it. I couldn’t compete. While I would decide to decorate my room with posters, I saw little point trying to be something I plainly wasn’t and vowed to avoid posters of indie rock bands or anything political. Each Friday there was a market alongside the student union. I’m sure they sold all kinds of useful things, but as I remember it, every single stall sold either incense or posters. With limited funds, I went through the racks determined to fill the empty void of my wall. It was an alien world. I had no idea which band Che Guevara was in, but as he’d not been good enough to make it onto the Hits of ’89 Volume 1 cassette, I decided to steer clear. After an hour of searching, I finally saw someone I recognised – Humphrey Bogart. Without so much as a first thought much less a second, I bought Humphrey. I had purchased an entire packet of Blu-Tack in anticipation and, back in my room, eagerly unfurled my poster. There is a time in your life during which Blu-Tack is vitally important. It must be scrounged and protected as though it were platinum. Accustomed to using scraps, having a whole packet at my disposal seemed like luxury itself. With great care and unusual caution, I fixed the poster to the blank canvas that was my wall. Satisfied with my work, I took a step back. I loved the work of Humphrey Bogart. Casablanca was (and is) one of my favourite films of all time and The Af-

rican Queen reminds me of Saturday nights in front of the television. But this photo was drawn from neither of these motion pictures. Nor was it from the Maltese Falcon or The Treasure of the Sierra Madre. Smooth of face and pouty of lip, there was something distinctly effeminate about this image of Bogie. As though he had just auditioned for Tootsie. Worse than merely effeminate, Humphrey was a little creepy, too. No matter where in the room you stood, his eyes would follow you. Invariably, the first thing anyone would ask when entering my room was “who’s that lady?” This question was quickly followed by “and why is she dressed up as Humphrey Bogart?” Despite its unrepresentative nature, I took the bogus Bogart portrait with me wherever I lived during my student years. At one stage, I even used it as a substitute curtain to block out the sun. But there comes a time when you no longer need to explain yourself and, even if you do, it is not by way of a poster. Somewhere along the line, I decided to take the poster out to the recycling bin. It felt like a betrayal. It was dark and misty and, in the distance, there was plane on the runway preparing for takeoff. Realising that my problems didn’t add up to a hill of beans in this crazy, mixed up world, I prepared to throw him away. Taking one last glimpse of my poster, I told him this was the end of a beautiful friendship. For a moment, I thought I saw the fulsome lips of the slightly effeminate Humphrey Bogart poster move just enough to say: “Here’s looking at you, kid.” www.stuartmccullough.com

Pull on the whites, cricket’s back CRICKET By IT Gully THE line markings haven’t even faded from football grounds, but players of a different sporting code take to the field for round 1 this Saturday. It’s cricket season. Mornington Peninsula Cricket Association matches in Provincial, District and Sub-district competitions begin with one-day games. There are high expectations for a super season in the three divisions, given the talent that has come into the competition as well as expected increase in media coverage. The “Cricket Rumours” Facebook page has been a constant source of amusement and information, while Radio Port Phillip will broadcast a Saturday morning show and live broadcast on Saturday afternoons on 98.7 and 98.3 FM. The success of the live broadcasts will depend largely on the quality of information coming from other grounds. Former Victorian championship player Nick Jewell is undoubtedly the biggest name to enter the MPCA this season. Jewell joins Sorrento as captain-coach in Provincial. Arguably Frankston-Peninsula’s best-ever player, Darren Groves, returns to Rye in Provincial grade, while fellow Premier Cricket player Simon Dart has landed at Red Hill in

Sub-district grade to try and help the club take the next step. Mt Eliza earned the right to enter Provincial after winning the District pennant last season, while Hastings was controversially relegated after breaching the player points policy. Pines enters District cricket after dominating Sub-district last season and Balnarring surprisingly was relegated. In Sub-district, French Island makes its way into the top grade after playing generally as an A1 side. This creates a bye in Sub-district, but makes the competition a lot more interesting. Following are ladder from last season in each of the divisions as well as some of the movements made during the off-season. Provincial grade is expected to be again dominated by Baxter, Sorrento and Peninsula Old Boys. You can throw a blanket over at least six clubs in District that are more than capable of playing finals. There will be nothing in this grade. In Sub-district, Red Hill will be better than any other team by the length of the Flemington straight.

Provincial Grade

Baxter – In 2012-13, the club again will be the yardstick of the competition. The reigning premiers don’t appear to have lost anyone, and there is talk Jedd Sutton is back. A real

positive for Baxter is Adrian Mack has had a full pre-season and is the fittest for many seasons. Sorrento – Nick Jewell landing at the Sharks as captain-coach has been the big story in the off-season. Former Wally Wedgewood medal winner Ryan O’Connor has been in Sydney for the past 12 months and the opening quick returns. The Sharks will be highly competitive and there is plenty of talk Jewell will not lose his wicket this season. Peninsula Old Boys – The Pirates were disappointing last season, considering the additions they had from the season before. Keeperbatsman Trevor Johnson has landed from Hastings, which raises the question whether he or Wade Pelzer will be the keeper. Long Island – The Islanders have some good news and some bad news heading into the season. Andrew Tweedle is back from Ferntree Gully as captain-coach and is a great addition. Michael Burke is looking for a bit of R&R after a big year in cricket and a league medal in footy to follow this up. Burke is expected to miss the first four games. The Islanders have lost David Maxfield to Queensland. Moorooduc – Expect plenty of runs from the batting machine Bobby Wilson. Wilson has been playing nonstop cricket for the past 18 months and was recently named in the Northern Territory team of the year. The Ducs don’t seem to have added many players to their list. Mornington – Luke Popov will take the reins again at the Dogs. Mornington blooded a lot of talented kids last season and they will be better for another pre-season. Expect the team to be more competitive and improve on its four wins. Crib Point – Brad Rossborough has moved to Main Ridge, which leaves a hole. It also means old stagers in Luke Herrington and his brother Warren, along with Barclay and Davidson, will be relied on to win. There was some talk Brad Watson had made a shift to Hastings. Mt Martha – The Reds have lost star quick Rhys Whitling, who has moved up the line due to work and will play in the Dandenong District Cricket Association. Mt Martha has an big crop of exciting kids, led by Jordan Pommeroy, who should be even better this season. Heatherhill – Matty Meagher takes the reins again as coach of the Hills. They were trying to entice Baxter’s Jedd Sutton but failed. It may be another lean season for the club. Rye – The Demons didn’t have the season expected in 2011-12. There has been plenty of talk there are a number of British players who have made the trek Down Under. The obvious massive inclusion is Darren Groves. We hear he is playing as a batsman only, but no one believes the all-time record holder for wickets at Frankston-Peninsula will not roll the arm over at some stage. There is talk Andrew Hitchener has returned from Rosebud. Ballam Park – Matty Roach is in charge, but the Knights, despite being cashed up and prepared to throw some of it around, have not announced any big-name recruits. Might be another tough year for the club after losing outright on five occasions last season.

Mt Eliza – The Mounties will be better than expected in this grade. They have been capable at this level for years but just haven’t been able to get there. Lyle House in is charge, Justin Grant and Tim Strickland are at the peak of their games, Matt Travena is back after playing two seasons overseas, and the club has recruited batsman Adam Mikkelson from Bentleigh. Chris McDonough is a loss with the new ball.

District Grade

Langwarrin – The Kangaroos have played in the past two District grand finals, but lost them both, to Hastings and Mt Eliza. The Kangas have picked up captain-coach Mark Cooper as well as off-spinner Dwayne Doig. Mal Coutts is assistant coach and Andy Johsnon vice-captain. Last season’s captain Nathan Volpe has left to captain Seaford. Carrum – The Lions will be very hard to beat. They have arguably the best young players in the game in Dobson, Hulett and Fry. Shawn Foster returns after a stint playing First XI cricket at Casey. He is a run machine and will be hard to stop. Delacombe Park – The Parkers were disappointing last season with just two wins, but the return of Chris Brittain to his home club, along with Simon Dignan, will make them more competitive. There is a whisper Joel Guthrie is coming back to play. Boneo – Leigh Lowry is the new leader at Boneo, which wasn’t far away last season. Leigh is a local boy who went on to become a top order bat

at Frankston. The only negative is talk that Leigh Janssen is looking to play Premier Cricket. Pines – The Piners will go with the tried and true side that played in a grand final two seasons ago and won it last season. Brett Remy is ready to go again, but Paul Bradley is expected to have a late start to the season. Star youngster Billy Humphrey will try his luck at Frankston-Peninsula. Somerville – Keith Burdett has crossed from Mt Eliza after playing a year in the lower grades and is expected to have an impact in the First XI. Brad Denny has left the Eagles after one season to play in the West Gippsland competition. Seaford – Nathan Volpe joins the Tigers from Langwarrin as captain. The club has secured Hastings’ Josh Trevitt, who will likely open the batting. Teenager Damien Lawrence is expected to play a full season. Main Ridge – The Cougars have appointed Brad Rossborough as captain after he crossed from Crib Point. Michael Holmes is coach. Brent Jones didn’t play last year due to a shoulder injury, but is expected to return and open the bowling. Baden Powell – Adam Landry is back after five seasons. Anjula Perera returns from Sri Lanka and Josh Waldron will play for the Braves after Christmas after being at Frankston last season. Flinders – The big loss for the Sharks is Simon Parrott, who is out for the season with a knee injury. Tuck will play the full year. Continued at top of next page

WESTERN PORT scoreboard Frankston YCW – New ground, new administration, new coach: things are looking up for the Stonecats after a couple of tough years. They should be better after losing outright twice last season. Hastings – The Blues are back in District after breaching the player points system and Darren Kerr has left to captain Rosebud. Trevor Johnson has moved to POB, Josh Trevitt to Seaford and Danny Helybutt to Rosebud, but the club has retained Scott Phillips, who is super fit, has reportedly picked up Brad Watson from Crib Point.

Sub-district Grade

Red Hill – The big story in the offseason was the signing of star Premier Cricket batsman Simon Dart. He may not lose his wicket this season after carving out a reputation at the top level. Word is Dart wants to dominate and he will. He isn’t the only recruit and the Hillmen will be hard to beat this season. Rosebud – The Buds appear to be the only side to at least challenge Red Hill. Darren Kerr is captain after crossing from Hastings. Jason Nagel remains

coach. Andrew Hitchener may have returned to Rye, and Danny Helybutt has joined Kerr in moving from Hastings and will be keeper. Pearcedale – The Panthers underwent the most exhaustive process to recruit a coach and players during the offseason, but couldn’t land anyone. Kaine Smith is still in charge and there is talk Aidan Bock has returned. The Panthers forfeited in their Second XI at least twice last season. Skye – Jason Hartigan has been appointed coach. Skye will be a young side this season, but can challenge for third or fourth position, the only spare spots in the top bracket. Seaford Tigers – Craig McIndoe is coach and was still looking to land a big fish before the season started. Corey Hand won the league medal last year and the team also has Warren Junkeer from Carrum. The big fish might come from the Lions. Carrum Downs – There was plenty of talk in the off-season the Cougars might lose Chamara Perera, but he has stayed, a good result for the club. Tootgarook – Once again, everything

this year will centre around young gun Matt Whelan. There is plenty of optimism for the Tooters this season as the club celebrates 50 years. Tyabb – Luke Rus is captain and club legend Greg Burch is the new coach, having been captain-coach of the team in 1986-87. The Yabbies were hoping to recruit some of the Cranbourne connection from the football club to slip on the whites. Dromana – The difference between the good and the bad at Dromana last season was significant. Consistency and consolidation are the keys for the Hoppers. Balnarring – Relegated from District cricket, the club will be looking at some of its talented 16- and 17-year-olds to have an impact and gain valuable First XI experience. The club has been able to hang on to the squad from last season. French Island – There has been a call for years to have French Island move from A1 to Sub-district. The Islanders will be competitive and have a winning culture.

Bombers make a Proud appointment FOOTBALL By Toe Punt PENINSULA Division team of the year full-back Duncan Proud is the new coach of Frankston Bombers. The Bombers made the appointment last Thursday after interviewing a number of candidates. It is understood assistant coach Brad Wakeling and Mornington’s Barry Smeeton also applied for the job and were interviewed. Proud, who has been vice-captain at Karingal for a number of seasons, has never coached, but this didn’t deter Frankston Bombers president Chris “Batty” Sharman. “We went through an exhaustive process and I was very happy with the due dilgence we carried out to ensure we got the right person for the coaching job,” Sharman said.

“Duncan presented extremely well and we were very impressed with his interview. We spoke with a number of people to obtain their thoughts and it all pointed in the direction to get him on board. “There is obviously going to be some talk about the fact he’s never coached, but everyone starts their coaching career at some point.” Sharman said Tony Blackford [the Bombers’ previous coach] hadn’t coached senior footy when he went to Berwick and “he is a three-time premiership coach at three clubs”. “We have a wonderful leadership group at the club and we are keen to attract some off-field assistance for Duncan.” He said the club was excited about the appointment and very confident it could continue to improve next season. Karingal president Daniel Watts said

By Tony Murrell AN ambitious campaign is underway to revitalise Frankston’s community spirit and secure the future of the city’s VFL team Frankston Dolphins. A group of businesspeople under the banner of Proudly Frankston will officially launch the community-wide push at a lunch on 25 October. The comprehensive plan includes development of a 500-seat entertainment centre at Frankston Park, plus youth and community programs. Concept plans for the new entertainment centre, to be built above the existing social rooms and fronting Plowman Place, will be unveiled and explained at the lunch at Frankston Park. Frankston Council, the state government, AFL Victoria and the Dolphins’ management are supporting the development. Proudly Frankston campaign leader Alan Wickes said the social centre is seen as a way of securing the club financially, guaranteeing that VFL football not only survives but thrives in Frankston. The Dolphins are the only original standalone club in the competition, playing against AFL clubs such as Collingwood, Geelong and Essendon. Proudly Frankston includes businessmen and educators, some of whom

are former Dolphin coaches and players, who are winning support from Frankston Business Chamber, service clubs, sporting clubs and schools for an agenda of social inclusiveness. “The new social centre will be iconic, a magnet for large community events and a source of community pride for Frankston residents,” Mr Wickes said. “We want its development to be a catalyst for far-reaching community initiatives involving groups and organisations that have already offered their support. “Our plan is to showcase Frankston’s wonderful assets and help launch programs that promote leadership and employment,” said the former Frankston coach and long-time Frankston businessman. “We will work and network with – and support in any way we can – any organisation in the city that promotes participation in sport and communitybuilding activities, particularly those encouraging involvement by young people. “We want to touch every part of this great bayside community.” Mr Wickes said Proudly Frankston, an initiative of the Dolphins, had a vision to use sport as “a way of tackling key community issues such as lifelong learning, healthy lifestyles and social inclusion”.

he was disappointed to lose Proud, “but Karingal Football Club sends him to Bombers with our best wishes”.

Tigers on the prowl DROMANA is ready to announce key signings in coming weeks. Coach Gavin Artico called me last week and said “get your pen ready; we’ll have some news in the coming weeks”.

Jewell to Rosebud FORMER Sorrento key forward Nick Jewell is the new coach at Rosebud. Jewell, who spent time on Richmond’s list, coached Heatherton last season and was keen to get the Rosebud job. He was a very interested onlooker during Rosebud’s finals series. Jewell beat a number of applicants, including sacked Frankston Bombers’

coach Tony Blackford. Jewell, a former star Victorian batsman, is captaincoach of Sorrento this season and still holds a part-time coaching role at Frankston-Peninsula, where he was head coach for a number of seasons. Jewell will be an exceptional coach at Rosebud in season 2013.

Sharks not Green THERE are still plenty of rumours about former Melbourne captain Brad Green coaching Sorrento next season. Green is keen to coach and there is talk Greater Western Sydney Giants was considering him for a role in Sydney. The powerbrokers at Sorrento like to have a big name at the helm to ensure the club maintains its high profile in the peninsula footy market. It’s worked for the club – it gets 100 people at $80 a head at nine

home games each season. A club spokesperson said no formal meetings had been held with Green. The spokeperson said the club would look no further than Nick Claringbold if it decided to go for a non-playing coach.

Kangas on the move LANGWARRIN is expecting former Hawthorn player and Box Hill star Beau Muston to play with the club in 2013. Muston played a couple of games for the Kangas this season. Meanwhile, Shane Urbans was a popular winner of the club’s best and fairest award. He played all his junior games at Langwarrin before heading to Pearcedale, where he is a life member. He returned to Langwarrin to finish his career and there is no sign of him slowing down.

Dolphins out to revive city’s spirit

Proudly Frankston: Leading the charge to revive Frankston’s and the Dolphins’ fortunes are, from left, Kevin Johnson, Alan Wickes and Ken Jungwirth.

The plan is wide-ranging and still evolving, said Wickes, who in early September became facilitator of Frankston District Junior Football League’s Youth Leadership Program. The three-stage program targeting 13-, 14- and 15-year-olds is based on international research that identifies teenagers as effective role models as well as teachers. “Our campaign must, in the end, engage the next generation of young peo-

ple and help guide them in their personal development,” said Wickes, who also is a past president of Frankston’s junior football league. Proudly Frankston is already working with Greater Frankston Business Chamber and service clubs. “We are building relationships and partnerships through networking with groups committed to a better Frankston. “As much as possible we will sup-

port small and medium businesses, which are the major investors and employers in our community,” Tickets for the midday lunch on 25 October are $165 and include a threecourse meal, Mornington Peninsula wines and entertainment by Frankston High School’s best young musicians.

Keeping the cups dream alive By Peter Ellis THE international thoroughbreds are expected to dominate the Caulfield and Melbourne cups, but among the Australian hopefuls are Bianmick and Dame Claire. Bianmick, prepared at Pakenham by Michael Brady, showed he could be a legitimate chance in the Caulfield Cup by winning the JRA Cup (2040m) at Moonee Valley last Friday night. It is a race that has been won by topliners El Segundo (2005), Maldivian (2007) and Alcopop (2009), so Bianmick joined some illustrious company. Veteran jockey Darren Gauci, who speared Bianmick to the front 800 metres from home, was impressed with the performance. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Although he has raced right through the winter, he has just kept stepping up to the mark,â&#x20AC;? Gauci said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;He took off a fair way from home and it was a lot earlier than I wanted, but he showed great courage to find the line. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Over the next few weeks he will be going up in class, but he will give them something to worry about if he strikes a wet track.â&#x20AC;? Dame Claire, who like Bianmick was a last-start winner, also is making her way through the ranks. In the Mornington stable of Pat Carey, who excels with stayers, Dame Claire showed her stamina by winning the $120,000 Ansett Classic over 2400 metres at Mornington on Saturday. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The win qualified her for the

in a $120,000 handicap at Caulfield on Wednesday 17 October. In the same race, Amah Rock, who was a heavily backed favourite, had a chequered passage. Although he only finished seventh, Amah Rock was desperately unlucky and will appreciate stepping up to 1400m. The $150,000 Moonga Stakes at Caulfield on 20 October would be an ideal target. The performance of Queensland six-year-old Solzhenitsyn in finishing third in the Group 1 Sir Rupert Clarke Stakes was a sign of better results. A winner of 10 races, Solzhenitsyn, who is in the Brisbane stable of Robert Heathcote, was having his first run in Melbourne and his effort showed he would be even better at 1600 metres. Three-year-old filly Love For Ransom, who was a brilliant winner at Moonee Valley at her previous outing, was disappointing when ninth over 1400m at the meeting. However, it may well pay to disregard the failure. Love For Ransom, who came from last to first at Moonee Valley, was always among the tailenders when wide at Caulfield. When she tried to unleash a burst, Love For Ransom found it impossible to make ground on a track favouring frontrunners and those racing near the rail. Shocked trainer Greg Eurell said he would still press ahead and run her in the $500,000 Thousand Guineas at Caulfield on 17 October. While Love For Ransom was in the spotlight, the Zabeel filly La Zuma

Melbourne Cup and at this stage we are keeping the dream alive for the owners,â&#x20AC;? Carey said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;If she doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t come through the way we hope, there is always the Lavazza over 2800m for second grade stayer on Melbourne Cup day, so one way or another we will be there. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Even though she is only small, it is in her favour as she has great stamina and a will to win, a great asset over 3200m.â&#x20AC;? Mick Priceâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s unbeaten Fastnet Rock gelding Callanish will be among the favourites for the $200,000 Cranbourne Cup on Sunday 14 October. After Callanish scored his seventh successive win at Caulfield on Sunday, trainer Price said the fouryear-oldâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s next outing would be in the Cranbourne feature. A bold going type who had won his

six previous outings on rain-affected tracks, he displayed a distinct liking for firm ground when he demolished his rivals over 1700 metres. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s done a big job already, but deserves a shot at the Cranbourne Cup because of the way he won,â&#x20AC;? Price said. While Callanish was most impressive, the run of the day came from the Cranbourne-trained Morant. Trained by Damien Williams, the brother of champion jockey Craig Williams, Morant settled at the tail of the field after jumping from a wide gate. The former West Australian flashed home in the straight, running his final 400 metres in 23.27 seconds to finish a close third to Sydney mare Miss Marx over 1200m. The way he performed, Morant will be very hard to beat when he steps out

INTRODUCING THE SMARTER PHONE FOR HOME T-HUB 2

snuck under the radar in the race. In the care of Melbourne Cup-winning trainer Mike Moroney, La Zuma raced handily and battled on solidly to the line, indicating she will appreciate racing over longer distances. After his scintillating victory in the Bill Stutt Stakes at Moonee Valley, Gai Waterhouseâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s star Pierro seems to have a mortgage on the Caulfield Guineas. His main rival Epaulette, who had finished only a head behind Pierro in Sydney, did not enhance his guineas prospects with a battling win in the 1400 metres Prelude. In a few more strides the Leon Corstens-trained Awesome Bro, who rattled home, would have pressed the short-priced favourite and is sure to be about the place on Saturday week. Others to catch my eye were Generalife, Off And Laughing, Cheviot Beach, Obsidian Dragon, Thangodyouâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;rehere, Ironstein, Innocent Lady, Simply Put, Big Chill, McClintock and Saint Desir.

By Paul â&#x20AC;&#x153;Trackerâ&#x20AC;? Pingiaro WHILE increasing emphasis is placed on catch and release fishing, it is certainly not illegal to take a feed of fish for the table. Bag limits are set for a reason and anglers are well within their rights to claim the limit, if they are good enough. In the future I would like to see more attention placed on a maximum size limit. Large fish are breeders so in reality itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s these fish that need protecting. If you do want to take a feed of fish for the table, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s important to kill it humanely. All fish can be easily and humanely killed with a short, sharp blow to the top of the head. Fish that have a high blood content (snapper, sharks, tuna and salmon, for example) should be bled. Bleeding can be as simple as running a sharp knife from the top of the back gills all the way through the base of the gills. After this process, all fish should be placed on ice or in an ice slurry (a mixture of salt water and ice). Preparing your catch like this ensures they shine on the plate.

Whatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s biting

Squid: The inkers continue to be good in southern Port Phillip. They are slowly starting to show further up the bay. Mornington has seen a few squid caught off the pier and the boats. However, Sorrento, Portsea and Blairgowrie are still better options.

In Western Port, once again it has been the top end producing the squid rings. As for the piers, Warneet has been good and Flinders has been up and down again. Whiting: Some nice whiting are being taken on the Tyabb and Quail banks and even in Watsons Inlet. In Port Phillip, St Leonards and Point Nepean are producing the goods. Snapper: Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s fair to say just about everybodyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s favourite snapper spots are holding fish. As the weather gets warmer, the snapper will turn it on. For the best chances of landing a big red, fish the change of tide and use burley. Western Port is serving up great fishing at the moment with a wide variety of species. Leatherjacket, grass whiting, flathead, salmon, barracouta and, of course, snapper, squid and whiting are all on. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s true Western Port is one of the great fishing destinations. ď Ž Paul â&#x20AC;&#x153;Trackerâ&#x20AC;? Pingiaro has been fishing since he could hold a rod and stay in the boat. He was introduced to the sport by his father. Tracker has boat hire businesses in Mornington and at Yaringa Boat Harbour in Somerville. He has been a fishing writer for magazines and now brings his knowledge to MP News Group papers for season 2012-13.
