Portsea locals lay challenge down to Port Corporation
Portsea locals are challenging the Port of Melbourne Corporation to back its claim that bay beaches haven't been damaged by channel deepening.

They're asking the Corporation to leave its $100-million environmental bond in state coffers until the eroded beaches come back.
Jenny Warfe from the group Blue Wedges says if the Port believes the beaches will return it should be happy to wait until then before the bond is refunded.
"They have a lot of science to prove, they say, that channel deepening has had no impact on the problems at Portsea beach,"
"Therefore, if it is weather related and cyclical events have caused it then the cycle should come around again and the beach should come back. So lets wait until it does" she told 3AW News.
Warren Neale, who ran the Sorrento-Queenscliff ferry from 1975-2004, told the Herald Sun in November that area changed after dredging began.
"We've never had conditions like this before and now the beach has disappeared," Mr Neale said.
DRINK DRIVING: Neil Mitchell is alarmed at the recent spate of female drink drivers on Victorian roads. In the past seven days, a Narre Warren woman blew .304 in a black BMW and yesterday a 55-year Mooroolbark woman registered a .285 BAC.
