Recycler warns that woes may grow Brodie Cowburn THE Alex Fraser Group has begun a renewed push to keep their recycling facility in Clarinda open past 2023. The Alex Fraser Group was granted a 15 year permit in 2008 with an exit date of 2023 targeted. The group made a push for another 15 year licence extension in late 2014, but they faced unanimous opposition from the previous Kingston Council. The move to extend their concrete crushing op-

erations was eventually blocked when planning minister Richard Wynne announced Green Wedge land north of Kingston and Heatherton Rds would be rezoned from Special Use, allowing waste businesses, to a Green Wedge A Zone (‘Time to take out the trash in Green Wedge’, The News, 21/10/15). The News reported in February this year that the group had circulated a brochure to council seeking a 10 year extension of their permit. Alex Fraser Group managing director Peter Murphy has now confirmed that a new application had been lodged with council

to extend their license to operate for another 15 years. He said that the site would be forced to shut down if an extension could not be secured. “Victoria is already in a recycling crisis, this would only make things worse,” Mr Murphy said. “Kerbside glass is at the heart of Victoria’s recycling crisis. Our Clarinda facility recycles 200 million broken glass bottles every year. Closure could mean they go to landfill instead. “If we’re shut down, it would also mean Victoria loses access to one million tonnes a year of recycled re-

sources needed to complete major infrastructure projects in Melbourne’s south east. A major metropolitan quarry would have to be established to extract the same volume of resources.” Mr Murphy said that the group has tried to work with the state government to find alternate sites, but had been unsuccessful. “Unfortunately, there are no viable alternative sites, and so we’re asking Kingston City Council for more time,” he said. “We need more time so we can continue to recycle until we can relocate, to avoid adding to Victoria’s recycling

and resources crises. “Victorians want certainty about what’s happening with their waste. If this key recycling facility is shut down in 2023, it would significantly impact on Victoria’s recycling capability, and cut the supply of construction materials that are helping to build Victoria.” Recycling has proved to be a headache for Kingston Council this year. SKM closures have forced council to divert recycling to landfill on multiple occasions.

NEWS DESK MORDIALLOC is one of just two public boat ramps statewide where fees are still charged. Picture: Gary Sissons

Call to remove boatie fees THE state government has called on Kingston Council to work with them to abolish boat ramp fees in Mordialloc. Fishing and boating minister Jaala Pulford said that Mordialloc and Queenscliff were the only public boat ramps in the state which still charge parking and launching fees. The state government promised that those fees

would be abolished in the leadup to last year’s election. Ms Pulford said she called on “the City of Kingston to work with government to remove fees as soon as possible”. “Getting rid of parking and launching fees is a massive win for Victorian families, who can enjoy more affordable boating and fishing this season,”

she said. “We want the Borough of Queenscliffe and the City of Kingston to join the party because we know boaters and anglers want to launch into a fee free spring.” Last weekend the state government announced that fees had been abolished for boaters at Kananook Creek and Olivers Hill in Frankston.

Government help to clean creek KINGSTON Council will seek to work with the state government to reduce pollution in Mordialloc Creek. On 26 August, council voted to “write to Tim Richardson MP to seek written clarification on Victorian state government’s roles and responsibilities specifically related to the management and reduction of pollutants within state controlled creeks and waterways.” The successful motion, moved by Cr Geoff Gledhill, read that council officers would “liaise with government departments to advocate for the implementation of measures that will reduce the volume of pollutants, such as litter and silt, flowing into Mordialloc Creek.” Council officers have also been directed to “write to Melbourne Water to seek their commitment and time frame to construct a wetland along Mordialloc Creek on the east side of Boundary Road, investigate the benefits of establishing a central system where the community could report pollution along Mordialloc Creek so that this information could be collected, collated and sent to the responsible authority to take appropriate action, and undertake a review of a range of improvements to capture and reduce the volume of pollutants”.

Shade grants open SCHOOLS can now apply for the latest round of the School Shade grants program. The grants are for schools to install

shades to help keep students safe from the sun. Carrum MP Sonya Kilkenny said “my electorate is perfect for spending time outside on lovely sunny days at the beach, in the parks, on sporting fields but we have to protect ourselves.” “Shade structures such as shade sails and trees are the best defence from dangerous UV rays, but should always be used alongside other sun protection measures such as sunscreen and protective clothing,” she said. “Unfortunately, skin cancer is one of the most common forms of cancer and one of the most preventable. That’s why this shades grant program is so important.” To apply visit

Skate park works are underway WORKS to refurbish the Dingley Skate Park are underway. The works will see “safer” equipment installed at the park. Kingston Council said via social media that “council regularly does audits on our assets to make sure they’re safe and up to scratch for community use. We conducted an audit of all of our skate parks in September last year and Dingley Skate Park was one flagged for repairs.” “Council takes a proactive approach to issues of community safety and decided replacing the equipment would be the safest option, rather than trying to repair it. Through this program all equipment will be replaced, like-forlike.” The project is due to be completed by October.

Jet ski critics ‘demonise’ families Stephen Taylor BOATING industry association’s have condemned the “repeated and ongoing attacks on Victorian boating families” by Mornington Peninsula Shire Council. This follows the council’s push for residents to back its tough stance against the behaviour of some jet skiers on the bay (“Shire pushing hard line on jet skis, The News, 27/8/19). The chair of the Personal Watercraft Industry Association and a past president and life member of the Boating Industry Association of Victoria, David Heyes said industry or user groups had “never been consulted in any of the [newspaper] articles fuelled by the [shire] and other minority groups”. He said “history condemns the behaviour of council and [Rye Community Alliance chair] Michelle Cheers’ hatred of the boating community with their position on the [Rye] boat ramp upgrade and hysteria over PWC use on local beaches”. “Hatred has nothing to do with it,” Ms Cheers said in response. “It’s about everyone being able to enjoy the beaches and the water and not being affected by the noise and aggression of a minority group.” She said more than 6000 people had signed the alliance’s petition to ban jet skis on the southern peninsula. Mr Heyes said a lack of equality and the lack of sharing of the waterways is “un-Australian and demonises families and children just wanting to enjoy the waterways”. He said most PWC users were law

abiding family people and “should not be marginalised for the actions of a very few”. Mr Heyes – who works for a multi-national company producing and marketing jet-ski propulsion systems – said the boating community “supported tough regulations to deal with unlawful use of craft”. “If local residents are concerned about boating behaviours then they should vent their concerns over how the regulations are enforced and not be discriminatory about the boating public.” Mr Heyes said there had been “no reports of incidents or injury to bathers or jet skiers on the [Mornington] peninsula to date”. He said the 2000 jet skiers living on the peninsula were enjoying a “legitimate family recreational pastime with the typical rider demographic of a 45-year-old successful white collar professional trade person who is married with children”. Mr Heyes also said jet skis were environmentally friendly with no strakes or exposed propellers to damage marine life or beach goers; noiseless (“emitting less than 70dba within 30 metres”); pose no threat to amenity; have learner keys and brakes to “stop the vessel on command”; flat bottoms, and the footprint of a kayak or canoe. Mr Heyes said jet ski clubs “working alongside the PWC industry” provided courtesy rider patrols “where jet ski concentrations are highest” to offer Transport Safety Victoria safety information and “make sure PWC operators are aware of the local rules and regulations”. “These patrol teams interact with at least 30 PWC operators per day during the season,” he said.

Peace Bonds aeroplane belatedly arrives Compiled by Cameron McCullough THE aeroplane used to advertise the Peace Loan arrived in Frankston on Monday afternoon shortly after 3 o’clock. It was advertised to make its appearance in the forenoon, and a good deal of disappointment and inconvenience was occasioned the public, who had assembled at the Old Racecourse paddock at 11 a.m. in anticipation of its arrival at that hour. Nothing was known of the altered arrangements till Crs Oates and Mason motored to the rendezvous and announced that a message had just come through to the effect that the programme had been altered. Probably a reasonable explanation could be given as to why the aeroplane could not arrive at 11am as originally intended, but it is difficult to explain why the local committee was not informed of the revised arrangement in time to warn the public. As a matter of fact our aerial visitor was cutting capers over the neighboring town of Dandenong at the hour Frankston residents were vainly scanning the skyline for its appearance. However, the aeroplane ultimately arrived, and the occasion is likely to be long remembered by the juveniles at least. All the school children were present, and there was great hurrahing as the machine hove in sight. As it prepared to alight, the youngsters and even some of their elders did not appear too anxious to get too near to the monster of the air. An aeroplane at close quarters is a fearsome thing to the unsophisticated,

and many of the children took to their heels and would not venture near till the machine was quietly resting on the ground. The appearance of the smiling face of Captain Cobby had a reassuring effect, and after the aviator gave up his seat in the plane to Councillor Oates, the crowd considered it safe enough to draw closer. Cr Oates briefly explained the object of the airship’s mission, after which Sgt Cooper said that other loans were used to kill human beings, but this loan was for the purpose of putting the soldiers back into their former positions. At the beginning of the war their Prime Minister, Mr Andrew Fisher, promised the last man and the last shilling, but there was no need for any man to go away and brave the hardships again, still there was the need for money to be supplied to our authorities so that they might carry on. Speaking of his experience in America, he said that country was doing a lot for its soldiers, but its troops had not been in the war as long as Australians, and, although they had done a lot in the line, they did not do better than the Aussies, and, were not our men, therefore, entitled to more than the Americans? They do not ask for something they were not entitled to, but only a fair and square deal, and it was now the people’s time to do something for them. He then appealed to the gathering to take out Peace bonds. During the afternoon bonds to the

value of £1000 were applied for. *** ALL State schools will be closed from 22nd to 26th September, inclusive, in connection with the Royal Show. Teachers’ salaries will be paid in full for the month on Wednesday, 17th September. *** ATTENTION is directed to an advertisement in another column relating to an Executor’s sale of property on Point Nepean Road in the estate of Charlotte Keys, deceased. The sale takes place on 30th September at Arnold House 16 Queen St Melbourne and the auctioneers are Messrs Sydney Arnold, Best and Co and Mr W. P. Fairlam Cheltenham. *** THE new term of the Frankston Grammar School begins on Tuesday 16th inst. in new premises known as the Methodist School Hall in High St. Mr J. Austin, the Principal will attend the School on Monday from 10am to 5pm to interview parents and enroll pupils. Kindergarten and junior classes are being formed under a special teacher. *** A MEETING of the Frankston Horticultural and Agricultural Association will be held in the Mechanics’ Institute on Friday, 19th inst at 8 o’clock pm to consider the advisability of holding a show in 1920 and any other business arising. As this is a matter of great importance to the town and district a large attendance of members and intending members is expected. ***

THE Digger’s Job and Ours – The Commonwealth Government is floating the Peace Loan of £25,000,000, stresses the fact that the whole of the Loan will be used for war and repatriation purposes – principally the latter. When one takes into consideration what the A.I.F. did for Australia and the Empire generally, one cannot but admit that the effort of the man who stayed at home, be it ever so great, is small by comparison. Now is the time for Australia to finish the job. The Digger’s task to re-establish himself. *** Police Court. At the Frankston Police Court on Monday before Messrs C. V. G. Williams (chairman), C. W. Grant and W. J. Oates Esqs J’s.P. the following cases were dealt with: F. W. Merritt v. Albert Seadon Lunn. – Claim for £89s 3d. Goods sold including incubator £6, and rooster, £2. In answer to Mr Cook who appeared for the complainant, defendant said he was a returned soldier and was working for the Shire Council. His weekly earnings average £2 10s. He had not received assistance from the Repatriation department. His wife had obtained a loan of £5, and was repaying it by installment of 5s per week. Defendant admitted owing the amount claimed. He had been expecting help from the Repatriation department and complainant had promised not to press him.

Bray v John Taylor and Elizabeth Philbrick charged with being drunk and incapable in Bay St, Frankston on the 7th inst. The Police evidence went to show that the couple arrived in Frankston by train Saturday night, next day they were both very drunk in the streets. Senr. Const. Bray said that such an occurrence was very unusual in Frankston and it was desirable in the interests of the place that exemplary punishment should be meted out. Defendants were fined 10s each in default 24 hours. Travelling Without Ticket. A young mail named Macnamany was charged with travelling without a railway ticket. Ticket checker Lovell deposed that he found defendant in a first class compartment at Frankston on 7th inst. He had no ticket and the name and address he gave were both fictitious. Senr. Const. Bray informed the bench that defendant had caused a lot of trouble through refusal to give his correct name. Defendant was fined 20s with 10s costs. *** FROM the pages of the Mornington Standard, 13 September 1919

Red Hill take home premiership DIVISION TWO

By Brodie Cowburn RED Hill have been crowned MPNFL Division Two premiers for 2019. The Hillmen ran onto Frankston Park on Saturday with fire in their bellies, looking to avenge their Grand Final loss against Dromana last season. They took on Karingal in this year’s big dance. From the outset, Red Hill defended well and were able to restrict the Bulls from scoring. The Hillmen have been notoriously difficult to score against this year, with most sides rarely managing more than a handful of goals against them. Red Hill struggled to find the scoreboard themselves, but eventually went into half time with a narrow two goal lead. Although the Bulls trailed, there was always a chance they could bounce back. Star forward Marc Holt had scored 20 goals in two weeks, and has proved to be a match winner all season. Restricting Holt’s influence turned out to be vital for the Hillmen. He could only manage one goal for the afternoon, making the task all the more difficult for the Bulls. A five goals to one final term sealed the result, as Red Hill claimed the win and the premiership with a 9.11 (65) to

4.3 (27) win. Chris Irving was one of the Hillmen’s best, booting three goals. Jake Mitchell was also brilliant, as was Lachlan Chandler and Jonah Siversen. Jamie Mollo coached his side to the win. Red Hill’s premiership win sees them seal their promotion into the first division for next year. Karingal has a rough afternoon all around, as their Reserves and under19s sides also fell short. Langwarrin and Karingal did battle in the seconds Grand Final, with the Kangaroos hopping away to an easy 16.12 (108) to 4.9 (33) win. Dale Donkin was the hero, booting eight goals.

Dromana look to go back to back DIVISION ONE

By Brodie Cowburn DROMANA have booked their Grand Final spot with a win over Bonbeach. The Tigers scored the only goal of a scrappy first term, and ended up going into the half time break with an eight point lead. Dromana stretched their lead in the third term, and managed to keep the Sharks at an arm’s length. Bonbeach couldn’t close the gap, and Dromana ended up taking the win 8.7 (55) to 5.6 (36). Sam Fowler booted three goals for the winning Tigers, while Sam Guerts also had a big impact. The Tigers go into this weekend’s clash against Sorrento looking to go back to back. They won the second division premiership last year, and are now looking to back it up with a first division win. Their Sorrento opponents will be looking to make up for their devastating Grand Final defeat from last year. The Sharks were defeated last season by Pines after the Pythons scored a behind after the siren. The match will be played on Saturday at Skybus Stadium, Frankston starting from 2pm. Mt Eliza and Frankston YCW will play in the Reserves Grand Final from midday.

Wee Mikey sends United Skye high SOCCER

By Craig MacKenzie WEE Mikey Turner claimed the goal that sent Skye United into State 2 with a nerve-jangling 1-0 win over Monash Uni at Skye Recreation Reserve on Saturday. Knowing that a win would secure promotion Skye made hard work of it against an opponent that had come to play and make life as difficult as possible for the home side. There have been many times this season that Skye gaffer Phil McGuinness has made effective substitutions and introducing Daniel Attard, Turner then Maxim Avram into the fray in the second half proved effective once more. Attard had an immediate impact setting up Jack Gallagher who squared the ball to midfielder Mark O’Connor but the Irishman couldn’t hit the target from close range. The moment that sent a huge crowd into a frenzy came in the 84th minute when Monash failed to clear following an O’Connor free-kick and Attard won the loose ball on the left of the area then crossed into the goalmouth. In the ensuing scrimmage Turner prodded the ball over the line with Monash keeper Sima Pasahat desperately trying to keep it out as he lay on the ground. The collective sigh of relief that descended on Skye Recreation Reserve was palpable and when the final whistle sounded supporters rushed onto the pitch to join players, coaching staff and committee in a group celebration. Few pundits predicted at the start of the season that Skye would win promotion and McGuinness and assistant Stephen Duffy have worked wonders with their squad. And during the euphoria many thoughts turned to the late Chris Attard who had been the soul of the club for decades and whose sons and wife retain a close association with the local outfit. In NPL2 news Langwarrin had to settle for a point in Saturday’s 1-1 home draw with Eastern Lions. The result ensured that the visitors clinched the championship after second-placed Bulleen was surprisingly beaten at home 5-2 by Goulburn Valley Suns who had to play with 10 men for the last 35 minutes. Langy took the lead against Lions in the 38th minute with a mistimed strike from defender Luke Burgess that deceived Lions’ keeper Keegan Coulter and trickled over the goal line. Two minutes into the second half

a long clearance from Langy keeper Fraser Maclaren sailed over the head of the Lions defence and set up Damir Stoilovic with Coulter stranded but the former Springvale White Eagles striker lobbed the ball wide with the goal at his mercy. Lions had to wait until the 87th minute to hit back and the equaliser came when a Ziggy Razuki cross from the left skimmed off the head of Langy substitute Alex Van Heerwarden and into the far corner even though Maclaren got a hand to the ball. In State 1 news Mornington scored twice in quick succession in a 2-0 home win over Eltham Redbacks last weekend. In the 62nd minute a defensive howler from former Mornington player Andy Maclean gifted Liam Baxter with the opener and a minute later substitute Noah Werner tapped the ball into an unguarded goal after the Eltham keeper had dropped a high Baxter cross under pressure from Josh Hine. In State 2 news Peninsula Strikers went down 3-2 at home to South Springvale in a thriller on Saturday.

proceedings and it took a Marcelo Arapis free-kick in injury time to win the match and with promotion rival Berwick City losing it sent the Greekbacked South Springvale back into State 1 after a two-year hiatus. In State 3 news Frankston Pines enjoyed a 1-0 away win over Middle Park last weekend and there was no love lost between rival coaches Kevin “Squizzy” Taylor of Pines and Andy Webster of Middle Park. Taylor claims that Webster refused to shake hands before the kick-off and that harsh words were exchanged. “When I left he was standing out the front and glaring,” Taylor said. “I waved at him, thanked him for another three points and wished him well wherever he ends up next year because I’d be surprised if he’s still there.” CJ Hodgson got the winner thanks to a 55th-minute free-kick. Bailey Atkinson of Pines was forced off with a broken wrist early in the first half. In State 4 news Baxter finished the season in style with a 4-0 home win over Springvale City last weekend. The result means Baxter earned three points more than its total in 2018 when its tally included a 3-0 walkover due to the opposition playing a player under a false name. The win against Springvale City

came via second half goals from Stuart McKenzie (2), Lewis Gibson and Matt McDermott. Harry McCartney reports that there was a farcical finale to Seaford United’s season when three Seaford players were sent off in injury time as the local side defeated Chelsea 4-0 at Edithvale Recreation Reserve on Saturday. In the 32nd minute Matthias Schwellinger’s cross was headed home powerfully by Dylan Waugh at the back post to open the scoring. Chelsea striker Daniel Vella had three attempts to square the ledger before half time, but was denied by Seaford keeper Anthony Madafferi, the woodwork and a poorly placed shot from directly in front of goal. Seaford’s second came in the 53rd minute when Jeremy Schwellinger pounced on a defensive error for a simple lob over advancing Chelsea keeper Rhys Davies. Another defensive error a minute later gifted Waugh his second goal when he slotted home into the bottom corner leaving Chelsea players arguing among themselves. In the 70th minute Jeremy Schwellinger was brought down inside the box and Jack Carter made it 4-0 with an unconvincing but effective spot kick after Davies got a good hand

to the strike. In the 93rd minute Chelsea was awarded a free-kick just outside the area and chaos descended. Referee Dino Christodoulou attempted to move Seaford’s defensive wall back the required distance. First Kane Ireson was yellow carded for not moving back then Mathias Schwellinger was cautioned. When both parties pleaded for leniency they received follow-up yellow cards and were sent off. After the final whistle Tristan Stass pleaded with the referee for some sort of common sense but after initially receiving one caution he was quickly shown a second and also sent off. In State 5 news champion Somerville Eagles signed off on a league season to remember with a 5-1 drubbing of visitors Casey Panthers on Saturday. It was Somerville’s ninth straight win and it won the title by nine points over arch rival Old Mentonians. No prizes for guessing the scorers with Dave Greening notching a hattrick and Mark Pagliarulo a brace. Somerville now enters a play-off series to determine the best State 5 side in Victoria and it kicks off its campaign against State 5 East champion Waverley Wanderers this weekend. The winner goes into the grand final against the winner of the play-off between the State 5 North and State 5 West champions. Rosebud rounded off a season in which it established itself as a competitive outfit at this level by convincingly defeating Pakenham United 4-1 last weekend. Doubles to Chris Parry and Blake Hicks did the damage at Olympic Park. Rosebud has a catch-up match away to Tullamarine scheduled for next Saturday but looks set to forfeit. However it will play Wednesday’s night’s catch-up fixture against Aspendale Stingrays who drew 3-3 at home to Knox United on Saturday after twice leading by two goals. Aspendale scored through Nathan Barnett, Anthony Segavac and an own goal and its best were Kieran Hughes, Peter Dimopoulos and Patrick Diakogeorgiou. This week’s games: WEDNESDAY, 8pm: Aspendale Stingrays v Rosebud (Kingston Heath Soccer Complex). SATURDAY, 1pm: Somerville Eagles v Waverley Wanderers (Comets Stadium).

Rox The Castle flies under the radar HORSE RACING

By Ben Triandafillou THE small, yet brave, Balnarring-trained racehorse Rox The Castle has once again defeated a runner that many pegged as a “horse that couldn’t be beaten” at Sandown on Wednesday 4 September. The Kerry Edwards-trained galloper jumped as the second favourite behind the promising Phillip Stokes-trained Jumbo Ozaki who many expected to come out on top before heading towards bigger targets in the Spring. But, the little pocket rocket, Rox The Castle, didn’t lay down without a challenge and led from start to finish with the top weight of 59.5kg to score his first win for the preparation. Third-up and

nearing peak fitness, the fiveyear-old son of Castledale held a comfortable three-quarters of a length margin over the hyped horse, Jumbo Ozaki, who had every possible chance to run him down. The five-year-old son of Castledale was given a calm ride by Mornington-based jockey Jack Martin and notched up his sixth victory in Australia since moving from New Zealand. The victory added to Martin’s already successful run aboard Castledale progeny having claimed the Group Three Craven Plate at Randwick last year aboard the Peter Gelagotistrained Moss ‘N’ Dale. Despite being impatient in the mounting yard pre-race, trainer Kerry Edwards said her stable star should never be underesti-

mated. “Today was the worst he’s ever been at the races as far as his patience goes, so to see him go out and do that and carry that weight against the horse that everyone said ‘couldn’t be beaten’ was incredible,” Edwards said. “He’s done it before [by defeating the heavily-supported] Greyworm previously so he just defies logic sometimes. He’s a competitor, he’s just got that will to win.” While Rox The Castle doesn’t look all to different this preparation compared to his last preparation, Edwards said he’s really put on a bit of muscle where he has needed to. “He’s got strength about him this time in work,” she said. “Physically he just doesn’t look much different but he’s carrying

about 10 kgs more.” Since his run on Wednesday, Rox The Castle has had a quiet time of recovering with the run taking “a bit out of him” but Edwards said she couldn’t have been any happier with the way he felt at Balnarring beach on Monday morning. “This morning down at the beach, he just felt enormous,” she said. “After the race last week he had Thursday off and then Friday and Saturday he was very quiet but he’s back to where he needs to be now. “I reckon his last run will have him cherry ripe for his next assignment that we go to.” As long as he gains a start in the race, that next assignment will be the $140,000 Listed ‘The Sofitel’ handicap (1400m) at Flemington on Saturday 14 September.
