EMERGENCY services clean up after a Cessna 172 plane crashed in Mordialloc’s Scarlet Street on Friday afternoon, killing the pilot. Picture: Gary Sissons

Plane crash cause probe Neil Walker AIRCRAFT crash investigators will examine the reasons for a light plane crash in Mordialloc on Friday (8 June). A single-engine Cessna 172 that took off from Moorabbin Airport at about 4pm crashed in Scarlet Street

at about 5pm on Friday afternoon and erupted into flames. The pilot, Anthony Lidell, 50, a father-of-two from Mount Martha, an experienced aircraft mechanic, died when the plane hit the middle of the road in Scarlet Street, narrowly missing houses. Some residents rushed to the crash site to try to help despite the plane’s fuel catching fire in the street.

Firefighters quickly extinguished the blaze upon arrival. Victoria Police spokeswoman Belinda Batty said the cause of the plane crash will be investigated by the Australian Transport Safety Bureau. “Police will prepare a report for the coroner after the death of a man in a light plane crash in Mordialloc,” she said in a statement.

“No-one else was injured in the incident.” Scarlet Street is less than 1km from Moorabbin Airport. Kingston mayor Cr Steve Staikos said council was saddened to hear about the pilot’s death. “Our thoughts are with the pilot’s family and also with the local community who have been shocked by the crash in Scarlet Street,” he said.

“Council will ensure that all local residents are kept informed of the outcomes of this investigation as soon as a finding is made.” In October 2014 a pilot, John Stephenson, 77, died when his light plane crashed in a laneway off Thames Promenade in Chelsea after leaving Moorabbin Airport. No-one else was injured in that crash.

Life’s a beach for dogs off-leash trial Neil Walker

Brushing up: Mentone Mordialloc Art Group members Marion Cowdell, left, and Julie McDonald looking forward to the group’s annual exhibition at Mentone Activity Hub. Picture: Gary Sissons

Gearing up for art gala THE Mentone Mordialloc Art Group is hosting its annual Gala Exhibition and Sale this month. Inspiring artworks from talent group members will be on display to admire and buy. The not-for-profit organisation, managed by volunteers, hosts regular art lessons and classes for artists of all abilities and ages. The Gala Exhibition and Sale opening night will be held at Mentone Activity Hub, 29 Venice Street, Mentone

on Wednesday 20 June, 8pm. The exhibition will be open for public view daily 10am4pm until Saturday 1 July. The art group was formed in 1956 and moved to its premises at Mentone Activity Hub, 29 Venice St, Mentone in April 2016 from Old Granary Lane. See or call 9584 6376 for more details.

DOGS will be allowed to roam free at a section of Edithvale beach as part of a trial of a possible 24-hour off-leash area. Councillors at the 28 May public council meeting voted to allow dogs to walk off-leash along the Edithvale foreshore between Somme Lane and Bristol Avenue but are seeking community feedback on the plan. South Ward councillor David Eden said people may completely back or oppose the move or be happy for it to proceed “with some modifications”. He acknowledged “a compromise” between dog owners and non-pet owners is needed when deciding where dogs can walk off-leash on beaches. “It’s something that a lot of people in the community are passionate about,” Cr Eden said at the meeting. “When you’re talking about dogs, for a lot of people, you’re talking about their loved ones.” Fellow South Ward councillor Georgina Oxley said councillors are comfortable considering other areas for dogs to be allowed to off-leash. “None of the councillors are wedded to this area. We’re certainly happy to consider other areas.” Council officers also flagged alternative areas in Chelsea and Carrum for potential off-leash designation in a report lodged at the council meeting.

Officers recommended an off-leash area to be introduced at Carrum beach since it “would be a better outcome in respect to a permanent dog off-leash area as this location is a quieter area of foreshore and would minimise conflict with competing users of the foreshore”. That area, near Osprey Lane, is already an off-leash area at specific times of the year. South Ward councillor Tamsin Bearsley noted: “We’ve had a lot of success with the Mentone dog offleash 24-hour area … [but] Mentone is a long way off” for South Ward dog owners. Council will advertise the proposed Edithvale off-leash area for community feedback before any final decision. See or call 1300 653 356 for more information.

Road trauma claims victims FIVE people died across Victoria as a result of road trauma over The Queen’s Birthday long weekend (9-11 June). A cyclist, motorcyclist, pedestrian and two drivers were killed with three deaths occurring within two hours of one another on Monday. Road Policing Command Assistant Commissioner Doug Fryer said we now have five families trying somehow to come to grips with the reality of road trauma. “Our police have had to knock on five doors this weekend and deliver an unimaginable message,” he said. “I feel for the families, friends and extended community impacted and also our police officers; attending collisions at all times of the day and night.” The fatalities were: n The death of a 70-year-old woman in a driveway on Saturday 9 June when she was struck by a car in Parkdale just before 10am. n A 52-year-old man killed in Stawell on Sunday 10 June, when his car rolled and struck a tree just before 7.30pm. n A 61-year-old male cyclist in Moorooduc, on Monday 11 June following a collision with a garbage truck about 10.40am. n A motorcyclist, aged in his 50s, who was killed on Monday when he collided with a car at Heathcote about 11.15am. n The death of a 28-year-old man when his 4WD rolled backward on a steep incline striking him while off-road, in Hopetoun Park

about midday on Monday. Police conducted more than 137,400 preliminary breath tests and 2051 roadside drugs tests over the long weekend; detecting 227 drink drivers and 148 drug test offences. “I’m concerned by the number of drink and drug drivers and unauthorised road users taking to our roads,” Assistant Commissioner Fryer said. “One in every 605 drivers was over the limit and one in every 14 motorists tested for drugs returned a positive result. “We’ve seen the impact drugs and alcohol have on our roads so to get behind the wheel impaired, I just don’t get it. “Over 540 motorists were also picked up for being disqualified, suspended or unlicensed. That is over 130 people each day trying to get away with driving when they shouldn’t be on our roads.” More than 8500 offences were detected during Operation Regal including: n 227 disqualified/suspended drivers n 347 unlicensed drivers n 817 unregistered vehicles n 3124 speeding offences n 341 mobile phone offences n 670 disobey signs/signals n 63 vehicle impounds n 256 seat belt offences Operation Regal ran from midnight on Friday 8 June until midnight on Monday 11 June.


Ann Brown’s schooldays hit the 75 years mark Stephen Taylor A MT ELIZA woman and former Beaumaris resident who had to leave school when she was 14 is now, aged 75, about to graduate from Deakin University with a PhD (Psychology). Ann Brown’s school in England wanted her to continue with her education but her parents could not afford it. They also believed that an education was “wasted on a female”. So, it was off to work for the bright youngster who says she enjoyed office work and went on, at 18, to become personal assistant to the editor of The Sunday Times newspaper in London. “Choosing office work stood me in good stead as I was able to move in and out of the workforce,” Ms Brown said. With husband Allan she migrated to Australia when she was in her early 30s with two children aged 11 and nine. Still “hankering after study” she began a course at the Open University following her retirement in her 60s and then studied at Monash and later Deakin universities, gaining her BA (Hons) and MA before beginning her doctorate. Overcoming several personal obstacles made her studies “touch and go”. Her only brother died suddenly, and Ms Brown had to return urgently to the UK to settle her elderly mother’s affairs after she died two years ago. The family then had to contend with a fire while living in Beaumaris and find temporary accommodation. She also had to overcome health issues after fracturing three vertebrae. Ms Brown revelled in her chosen field: the effect advertising has on women of all ages – particularly on their self-image. “I began to notice that women were being targeted in advertising with the underlying message that they should have no grey hair and no wrinkles,” she said. After examining 720 advertisements created

Never too late: University graduate Ann Brown wears a mortar board made by a friend. Picture: Gary Sissons

between 1960 and 2010 she saw how they had sought to gloss over the natural effects of ageing. She interviewed scores of women aged 30-75 to gauge how the messages had impacted their lives. “We are wonderful women with so much knowledge and experience, yet the ads are not about who we are but what we look like,” she said. “Most women being affected [by the anti-ageing message] are in their 60s but I also notice that some as young as 30 are having Botox injections to improve their self-image.” And it’s not only women who are being subtly influenced. “The ads also target young boys who get the message that they have to look strong,” she said. “I did my PhD mainly on my own but drew inspiration from my mentor, Dr Tess Knight, of Deakin University, who pushed me on when I felt like giving in.” Now school’s out for the active student who is content to say she is “proud of my achievement”.

Footy champs back cancer services THE loss of his mother just before turning 60 means Hawthorn premiership player Gary “Bucky” Buckenara knows all too well the devastating impact cancer can have on families. Buckenara, Frankston Football Club general manager and Rosebud resident, is joining with ex-Hawks teammate Robert “Dipper” DiPierdomenico to Take a Break for Cancer and host a special luncheon this month to raise funds for cancer services at Frankston and Rosebud Hospitals. “When you get the opportunity to help a cause that is dear to your heart, you do everything you can to support it,” Buckenara said. “Cancer is something that touches a

lot of people – it certainly touched our family. My mother passed away with ovarian cancer when she was 59, it was quite young. “Our children were just babies then. It would have been nice for her to get to know them and vice versa, but, unfortunately, that didn’t get to happen.” “Bucky” will share more of his mum’s story and tales from his playing days at the luncheon at Frankston’s Functions by the Bay on Wednesday 20 June. One in four people on the Mornington Peninsula will be affected by cancer. As demand continues to grow for the oncology service, Peninsula Health is asking the community to Take a Break

for Cancer and raise funds to expand local cancer services. “It’s really important to be able to access the best services close to home so people don’t have to trek into town for treatment,” Buckenara said. “Robert is a real character and we have some really funny stories to share about our footy careers and we’ll also talk about how cancer has affected us.” Tickets for the Take a Break for Cancer with Dipper & Bucky luncheon on Wednesday 20 June, midday-2pm at Functions by the Bay, Young Street & Plowman Place, Frankston are available at or by calling Peninsula Health on 9784 7777.

Fundraiser: Gary Buckenara set to raise money for cancer services in memory of mum.

Premier brunch

Looking forward to an active later life? Start thinking about it now.

Australians are living longer. And that means there’s a lot more life to enjoy. Whatever you’re looking forward to, the government has programs to assist Australians to be better prepared. The government is providing over $22 million to sporting and other local organisations to help you stay healthy, active and connected. There are lots of ways to live the life you want.


PREMIER Daniel Andrews will be guest speaker at a Committee for Greater Frankston hosted brunch at the 90-seat McClelland Gallery cafe in Langwarrin on Wednesday 27 June. The Premier is likely to be asked if his government supports the proposed Frankston medical teaching and clinical research hospital – a partnership between Monash University and Peninsula Health. Committee president Fred Harrison said it would create 1000 jobs including 500 longterm jobs for doctors, nurses, allied health professionals and administrators. “This once-in-a-lifetime opportunity would transform our region with a biomedical hub serviced by a metro train station,” he said. “The Premier and our local MPs know how important this is for jobs for our future generation.” The electrification of the Frankston to Baxter rail extension is also likely to be on the menu. See for more information.

New crossing A NEW pedestrian crossing at McLeod Road near Patterson Lakes Retirement Village was opened last week. A $400,000 upgrade between Snapper Point Drive and Schooner Bay Road near the Patterson Lakes Retirement Village includes new pedestrian lights. The new crossing also includes a pedestrian operated button in the centre median to allow people to cross the busy road more safely as well as a sensor to detect traffic leaving the retirement village driveway. “This new crossing will make McLeod Road safer for pedestrians, including those who regularly cross the road to get to and from the Patterson Lakes Retirement Village,” Carrum Labor MP Sonya Kilkenny said. “We’ve listened to the community and we’ve now delivered this important project which will boost safety and ensure local residents are able to cross the road safely.”

School seeks ruling to balance its numbers Stephen Taylor CO-ED school Peninsula Grammar is seeking an exemption from the Equal Opportunity Act to allow it to “better manage” gender numbers in its classes. Principal Stuart Johnston told the school’s alumni that the exemption would allow it to structure waiting and enrolment lists, allocate placements, and advertise or offer scholarships to either boys or girls depending on the genders it needed to balance numbers. The Mt Eliza school, which has 41 per cent girls and 59 per cent boys after becoming fully co-educational in 1996,

is seeking to extend the exemption granted by VCAT in 2013 for a further five-year term. Mr Johnston said that, under the terms of the act, students were admitted in order of application, but this tended to skew numbers and upset the equal balance of boys and girls. “We strongly believe it is in the best interests of both our male and female students alike, both educationally and socially, for our student body to comprise an equivalent number of boys and girls in each year level,” he said. “The exemption would permit the school to continue to take positive action to even out our boy to girl ratios,

thus enhancing the benefits of a fully coeducational learning environment.” Mr Johnston, who has been principal for the past nine years, said classes up to Year 9 were affected by a gender imbalance. “The perception of the community is that the numbers of boys and girls are equal. By having the exemption we can better manage that expectation,” he said. Other co-ed schools affected by an imbalance would likely also seek exemptions under the act, he said. “We believe in choice and also that co-education works well, with students of co-ed schools doing better.” The tribunal will hear the exemption application on 16 July.

THE “proudly co-educational” Peninsula Grammar School needs more girls to balance its student numbers.

Police patrol Pursuit after carjacking TWO men were arrested in Skye after an alleged carjacking in Braeside and a pursuit by police last Thursday morning (7 June). A group allegedly approached a man sitting in a car at a Lower Dandenong Road car park. One of the group is said to have shown the carjacking victim a box cutter and demanded his car. Police attempted to intercept the erraticallydriven car in Seaford before it was abandoned in Langwarrin. A 26-year-old Skye man and 25-year-old Dingley Village man who fled from the car were arrested with help from the dog squad and air wing.

Happy return A STOLEN bike, worth $1500, was returned to its rightful owner thanks to a sharp-eyed policeman. Kingston Crime Investigations Unit Detective Sergeant Mick Sewell found the bike on the Cash Converters database for its Parkdale store and realised it was the same bike stolen from outside Woolworths in Chelsea on Saturday 21 April. Cash Converters regularly notify police of items available at its stores for cross-reference with police records of stolen goods. Police encourage bicycle owners to take photos of their bike, record its serial number and note any identifying features to help if the bicycle needs to be found.

Mobile trailer hits the streets A MOBILE kitchen trailer to help feed homeless and disadvantaged people in the Frankston area has been built thanks to the generosity of several corporate, government and sporting club supporters. The Life-Gate charity unveiled the trailer last Wednesday (6 June) at the Frankston Library forecourt. Chisholm TAFE students helped prepare food at the new trailer’s first outing. Karingal Hub shopping centre stepped in with a $8000 donation to rescue the trailer project in March after a majority of Frankston councillors decided not to accept a request for council funding. “My wife Ulli and I founded Life-Gate 26 years ago because we saw the needs in our city,” Reverend Angel Roldan said. “The needs are still there, they are even greater than then. “Life-Gate has been operating a food-van for now 26 years. This trailer is an answer to prayer, because now our street outreach team will be able to be more effective in helping the needy with all the accessories installed. While we offer food to the needy, it is a means to get to know the needs of individuals who can, then, come to our centre for counselling, training, referrals to rehabilitation centres, and referrals to other organisations.” Federal Liberal Dunkley MP Chris Crewther facilitated a $11,000 federal government grant, South East Water and Bayside Shopping Centre pitched in $5000 each, Mt Eliza marking business Creative Artroom contributed $2000 and $3500 was handed over by individual donors via an online GoFundMe campaign. St Kilda Football Club invited Life-Gate to be the AFL club’s charity partner at its season launch to help make up the $36,000 total needed to build the trailer.

Crossing fund reservations expressed Neil Walker GROWING discontent over the removal of vegetation and “moonscaped” land around Seaford’s RF Miles Reserve as part of the Seaford Road level crossing removal has seen Frankston councillors demand clarity from the state government on how a $10 million community fund will be spent. A 7-1 majority of councillors at the latest 4 June public council meeting voted for council to contact Victorian Transport Minister Jacinta Allen and Carrum Labor MP Sonya Kilkenny “outlining council’s deep concerns

with regards to the lack of transparency and probity” around state “prioritisation of the $10 million funds set aside for projects associated with the rail works in Seaford”. North-West Ward councillor Kris Bolam introduced the motion as “urgent business” at the council meeting. “When the Seaford Road LXRA works were undertaken a commitment was given by Sonya Kilkenny to have a special fund, a slush fund, of $10 million that would be for the benefit of Seaford residents,” Cr Bolam said at the meeting. He expressed concern that the LXRA wanted to use most of the money for associated level crossing removal works instead of contribut-

ing money to community and sporting clubs such as the 1st Seaford Scouts Group who need new premises. Fellow North-West Ward councillor Glenn Aitken expressed alarm at the removal of several banksia trees near RF Miles Reserve. He described the area as “moonscaped” and said he had seen no evidence in plans that land would be revegetated. “The people of Seaford want that area revegetated,” Cr Aitken said. “They don’t want a series of hard surface trails.” Ms Kilkenny said a community reference group will help decide later in the year how the $10 million will be spent.

“Every level crossing project across Melbourne has included a community reference group, including at Seaford and Carrum.” The mayor Cr Colin Hampton, a Labor Party member, was the sole councillor to vote against pressing the state government for clarity on the $10 million fund. He said he had already written to Ms Kilkenny to ask for confirmation of planned community funding. He questioned raising the matter as “urgent business” at the latest council meeting. “I think this is not helping the case with Sonya. Give the lady a chance to answer the questions I’ve asked her,” he said.

“Many level crossing projects have included additional scope items to enhance the precinct around the crossing. And across Melbourne, local councils have been very supportive of this approach. “As part of removing the congested and dangerous level crossing at Seaford Road, the Andrews Government is spending $10 million to upgrade the local area, including RF Miles Reserve which is being occupied while the government is removing the crossing. “The government will fully consult with the community, including users of RF Miles Reserve such as the Seaford Football and Netball club, on the best way to spend this funding.

Chelsea Mordialloc Mentone News 13 June 2018


Steaks raised in anticipated football clash Compiled by Brodie Cowburn A FOOTBALL match between the Frankston and Mornington juniors was played on Saturday last in the Frankston park when, after an interesting game the visitors suffered defeat by 10 points. Mr W. Cain umpired satisfactorily. We understand that Mornington has issued a challenge to play Frankston at Somerville, the losers to pay for a dinner. If the challenge is accepted an interesting game should result. *** IN the 407th and 408th casualty lists, recently published by the Defence department appear the names of two Peninsula soldiers who have made the supreme sacrifice - Pte. E. E. Cook of Somerville and Corporal W. J. Hoban, of Hastings. Keen sympathy is expressed for the relatives of the deceased soldiers. *** LIEUTENANT W. C. Pentland, son of Mr W. C. Pentland, of Cheltenham was recently mentioned in despatches by Sir Douglas Haig. Lieutenant Pentland who saw service in the Boer war was wounded in France, and is now in hospital in England with one leg amputated. He was an old South Melbourne College boy and was well known in Frankston. *** THERE was a splendid attendance at the Frankston Mechanics on Saturday evening last, when a picture entertainment was held in aid of the funds of the Langwarrin Camp. Special interest attached to the screening of the picture taken on the

occasion of the Pageant of Loyalty at Frankston, and many residents had an opportunity to see themselves as others see them. Other pictures shown were of an equally high standard. *** IN aid of the Langwarrin Camp Fund a grand concert under the direction of Miss R. P. Langley of Melbourne and Mr J. B. Jolly of Frankston will be given in the Mechanics Hall Frankston on Saturday, July 16th, by the famous Merry Eight Musical Comedy Company. The programme promises to be one of the best ever submitted locally and as the cause is of such a deserving nature a bumper house is anticipated. The Concert company are giving their services gratis so the gross proceeds will be devoted to the fund. *** MRS A. W. Taylor sailed from Sydney on Tuesday last, to assist in the work of the Australian Red Cross in Egypt. She was one of two ladies selected in the Commonwealth for the work, the other being Miss Waugh, of Sydney. It will be remembered that some little time ago Mrs Taylor’s husband disposed of his garage at Frankston to join the Flying Corps. He is now in England. *** PROBATE of the will of Sir John Madden has been applied for by the National Trustees Company. He died on 10th March last, leaving estate valued at £29,082, being realty £14,213 and personalty £14,869.

Besides the capital moneys of her marriage settlement, which she takes absolutely at once, Lady Madden is given the income of the whole estate for life. At her death the capital is divisible into six parts, of which one part is given to deceased’s son, Captain Guy Ross Madden, absolutely, and the income of the five other parts is given to the five daughters, Mrs. Harry Osborne, Mrs. Clement Valange, Mrs. Pat Osborne, Mrs. M. H. Baillieu, and Miss Lesly Madden, for life, with power to appoint the capital fund of their respective shares. Sir John Madden’s town house, “Cloyne,” in St. Kilda, and “ Yamala,” his country home at Frankston, are both to be sold shortly. *** WILLIAM Henry Wooster and Frank Whyte were charged by Constable Ryan with behaving in an offensive manner in Bay Street, Frankston, on Sunday, 9th June. Defendants pleaded not guilty. Graham Berry Bennett, a motor driver, deposed that while sitting on a seat in Bay Street on Sunday afternoon he was accosted by accused who asked for a match. Witness gave Wooster some matches. Both men were in an intoxicated condition and used most abusive and filthy language to witness, who had not seen either of them previously. Witness reported the matter to the police and both men were arrested by Constable Ryan. Constable Ryan deposed to arresting the prisoners who were both under the influence of drink.

Each defendant was fined £1, in default 48 hours imprisonment. *** AN elderly man named William Palmer was charged by Constable Ryan with being drunk and disorderly, in Hastings Road, on Monday night, 10th June. Prisoner pleaded guilty. Const. Ryan stated that he found Palmer lying in a drunken condition on Hastings Road the previous night. He was in danger of being run over and was locked up for his own safety *** A VERY successful sale in aid of the funds of the local Red Cross was held at St. Pancras Private Hospital, Frankston, on Wednesday afternoon, conducted by the Matron (Miss Cadle) and Staff. In declaring the sale open, Mrs James Grice, of Moondah, said :Ladies and Gentlemen, You all know from the interest you have taken in the Red Cross the object of your meeting today. It is to show by our actions how we thoroughly appreciate what our gallant men at the front have done and are doing, for whilst we are living in comfort and luxury we can hardly understand the privations they are undergoing. *** THE town of Hastings was quite busy last Saturday afternoon when a number of men with horses and drays were busy at work clearing earth from the side of the main road and repairing the half yard with sand. Another working bee is to be held on Saturday. ***

A WEDDING caused a great deal of interest in Langwarrin owing to the fact that the bridegroom was formerly of the 5th battalion, A.I.F., Gallipoli, and his parents are well known here for their connection with the Red Cross work and patriotic functions. The bride and one of her sisters frequently appeared at local functions and at considerable expense they journeyed from the metropolis, and their presence was always welcome. *** A MEETING of the committee of the Avenue of honour at Frankston was held in the Frankston Mechanics’ on Monday evening. The minutes of the previous meeting were read and confirmed. A letter was read from Mrs E. Goodwin, applying for three trees.Mr Jennings moved that the request be complied with. Seconded by Mr Young, and carried. Mr Dower, on behalf of Mr Hartland who was unavoidably absent, reported that the trees could not be obtained at Brunnings, but that firm knew where they were to be got, and promised to secure them, when they would communicate with the secretary. Cr Mason moved and Cr Oates seconded, that Dr Plowman be appointed treasurer to the fund. Carried. Dr Plowman moved that Saturday, 13th July be fixed as the day for planting the trees. Seconded by Cr Mason and carried. *** From the pages of the Mornington Standard, 15 June 1918

An Open Letter in a Normal Sized Envelope By Stuart McCullough IT’S quite old-fashioned, in a way. To send someone a letter in this day and age runs the very real risk of being viewed as either quaint or Amish or maybe a little bit of both. North Korean Supreme Leader (a title that I previously thought belonged to Diana Ross) sent a letter to President Trump, the result of which is that the summit that was on, then cancelled, is – to use the official language preferred by the State Department - back on like Donkey Kong. It must have been quite a letter. I’m making an assumption, of course. They didn’t show the actual letter on the news, just the envelope. And it was, put simply, enormous. It was big enough to fit one of those ‘sorry you’re leaving’ cards that everyone signs whenever one of your colleagues gets a new job. Perhaps Kim Jong-un got everyone in the office to scrawl a message to the President and enclosed a Myer gift card. Little wonder that the meeting’s now going ahead. Nothing generates good will more than a fifty-dollar gift card. It’ll give President Trump the chance to buy a second tie and give the red one a well-deserved rest. Then again, maybe it wasn’t a card at all. Perhaps Kim Jong-un has gigantic handwriting. The stationery must be far bigger than anything Kikki-K has to offer. Did he include a drawing? Pressed flowers? The mind boggles. Perhaps it’s simply that the letter settled a key sticking point, like which McDonalds in Singapore

they’d be meeting at. You couldn’t tell me that –despite their differences – the one thing these two would have in common is an unshakeable faith in a Big Mac. That said, I wouldn’t put it past Kim Jong-un to order a Fillet O Fish as part of some next-level Jedi-style mind game. No one ever expects a Fillet O Fish. No one. Then again, the two of them could go out for pizza. As a New Yorker, it goes without saying that President

Trump has done many a deal over a slice of pepperoni pizza. For his Trumpiness, it wouldn’t matter what kind of pizza he ordered, so long as it had a stuffed crust. He’s definitely a stuffed crust kind of guy. As for Kim Jong-un, there’s little doubt he’d plump for a Super Supreme (Leader) family size pizza, washed down by a gallon of Diet Coke. After eating, they should go paintballing. What should we read into North

Korea’s over-sized envelope? Surely it has to be some kind of symbol. A warning, if you will. For a nation that has been accused of pushing the envelope, it can be no accident that when said envelope finally appeared, it’s large enough to use as a tent. Then again, I only saw the back. Perhaps the envelope is only as big as necessary to fit a North Korean stamp. It wouldn’t surprise me at all if every stamp carried a portrait of the Supreme Leader and there was some kind of nutso rule that said no picture of Kim Jong-un could be anything less than life-size, resulting in very, very big envelopes. It wasn’t just that Kim Jong-un sent a letter. It was that the letter was delivered by hand. Think, for a moment, what a tough job that would be. You have to fly from North Korea to America to hand deliver a letter; never letting that thing out of your sight, even for an instant. The letter probably got its own seat on the plane. You’d kick yourself if, having arrived in town early, you accidentally left it in the bathroom at the Smithsonian or spilt a little ketchup on it while at the baseball. As it was, the envelope appeared to be entirely blemish-free. As cute as a letter might be, it’s more labour intensive than, say, a phone call. It suggests that the parties are yet to establish a Kennedy/ Khrushchev-style Bat phone. Maybe they ought to. It would glow red whenever one wanted to speak to the other. I think it’d be safer than a more modern instant messaging option or

Skype. Too much could go wrong. One moment, there’s peace in our times; the next someone uses the term ‘covfefe’ which, as fate would have it, translates as ‘your mother is a goatherder’ in Korean and, in the blink of an eye, you have nothing short of anarchy. Perhaps it’s no surprise that they’re communicating by letter – where every word can be considered – rather than something more modern. It’s weird to say it, but this is potentially the most important play-date in history. All anyone can hope is that they get along; which is a big ask given the personalities involved. Each of them should bring the other a present. It’s well known that North Korea’s leader is a huge fan of basketball and computer games, so it should be easy to get him something to break the ice. Maybe not ‘World of War Craft’, lest he should go getting any ideas. As for the President, perhaps a suit from Kim Jong-un’s signature range for larger men. They’re surprisingly comfortable, not to mention slimming. It must have been some letter. I guess it doesn’t matter how big the writing or whether he used a typewriter, fountain pen or crayon; so long as things are moving forward. The mind boggles at how the discussion will go. Hunkered over Big Macs in a roped off part of McDonaldland, the fate of the Korean Peninsula will be determined. If it goes well, I’ll be sure to congratulate them. By letter, of course.

Frankston YCW slump to four straight losses DIVISION ONE

By Brodie Cowburn SORRENTO have piled further misery on Frankston YCW, claiming victory in a bruising contest at David Macfarlane Reserve on Saturday. Coming off the back of three consecutive defeats, Frankston YCW faced a tough challenge to break their losing run against the in-form ladder leaders on Sorrento’s home turf. Sorrento initially looked the better team in the early stages of the match, going into the quarter time break with a comfortable buffer of 14 points. Chris Dawes looked to stamp his authority on the contest with a number of big early marks for Sorrento. He was matched up on Frankston YCW defender BJ Credlin, with the Sorrento forward having a significant size advantage over his opponent. As the game progressed though, Credlin was able to get the better of Dawes, as Frankston YCW worked their way back into the contest with a big second quarter. Sorrento went into the half time break only three points ahead, and to make things worse they were playing a man down after Jack Grant was forced off for the game in the second quarter following a head knock. With momentum on their side and a half of football to play, Frankston YCW might’ve been considered favourites to run away with the contest, but Sorrento did well to persist despite playing a man down. Shannon Gladman stood up with a big performance to swing the game Sorrento’s way, and the Sharks went into the final term with a narrow seven point advantage. Frankston YCW remained within an arm’s reach of the game, but ultimately the strength of Sorrento’s big guns was too much to overcome, as the Sharks ran out 14 point winners

over Frankston YCW, 12.14 (86) to 10.12 (72). Chris Dawes finished with four majors for Sorrento, while Lachlan Street performed valiantly to put away four goals of his own in a losing effort for the Stonecats. Now having lost four matches on the trot, Frankston YCW will have a week off to lick their wounds and collect themselves. Mt Eliza hosted the only other game of MPNFL Division One football for the weekend, as the other teams enjoyed a bye. Mt Eliza took on Frankston Bombers in what would prove to be a difficult game at Emil Madsen Reserve. They started strongly with a two goal to zero first quarter, and went into the first break with a 13 point lead. Things didn’t get any better from that point on for the Bombers, as they struggled to make any impact on the scoreboard. Despite having more scoring shots for the quarter, Frankston went into the main break having kicked no goals and a miserable eight behinds. Mt Eliza failed to kick a goal in the third term but still went into the threequarter time break with a fifteen point advantage. Suddenly it was Mt Eliza who couldn’t buy a goal, as Frankston Bombers began to fight back while their opponents struggled. In the final quarter Mt Eliza could only muster up three paltry behinds, while Frankston Bombers were able to put two goals on the scoreboard. Despite a late fightback, Frankston Bombers couldn’t quite get over the line, as they fell to Mt Eliza in a scrappy contest 4.12 (36) to 3.15 (33). Floating to victory: Mt Eliza just got the chocolates against Frankston Bombers. Picture: Andrew Hurst

Tyabb storm home to claim second win DIVISION TWO

By Brodie Cowburn A SEVEN goal final quarter blitz from Tyabb has seen them secure their second win for the season, as they bested Devon Meadows and Bunguyan Reserve. Tyabb were slow out of the gates, and found themselves with their backs to the wall as they fell behind by 15 points at quarter time. They continued to slowly work their way into the game, and were only behind by a goal at the half time break. Devon Meadows continued to work hard but couldn’t stem the flow of goals, as Tyabb finally took the lead going into the three-quarter time break, with the margin only standing at a solitary point. Despite looking set up for a close finish, the final quarter was uncompetitive, as Tyabb blew the game apart with a stunning run of seven unanswered goals. Jake Anderson was the best on ground for the winning side, as he put away seven majors for Tyabb to take his tally for the season to 23. Tyabb are now one game clear of the bottom of the ladder, having put away Devon Meadows 17.17 (119) to 13.9 (87). Crib Point were also looking for

their second win of the year on Saturday, as they hosted Pearcedale at Crib Point Recreation Reserve. Pearcedale started things off on the right foot, holding their struggling Crib Point opponents scoreless in the first term. Things went from bad to worse for lowly Crib Point, as they could only manage one goal to Pearcedale’s seven in the second term, with the lead blowing out to 49 points in half time. Crib Point were able to restore some respectability with a good second half showing, but ultimately could do little to stop Pearcedale, as the final siren sounded with Pearcedale ahead 5.6 (36) to 13.9 (87) Laughlin Cowell was best on ground with five goals for Pearcedale, with his teammate Ben Mitchell also contributing five goals in his first game for the year. Elsewhere Chelsea battled hard to secure a win over Rye at RJ Rowley Reserve in a win that took them up to second place on the ladder. Led by a four goal performance by Jack Francis, Chelsea were able to outmuscle their difficult opponents. Chelsea entered the game as heavy favourites, but Rye showed they were not to be taken lightly, with Chelsea only holding an eight point advantage at the half time break.

After the main break Chelsea took the game by the scruff of the neck, with a six goal to two quarter being enough to see them secure a victory 12.11 (83) to 15.17 (107). In the final game of the split round, Hastings were able to claim a comfortable victory over Langwarrin at Thomas Barclay Oval. Hastings got out of the blocks with pace, taking a three goal lead into the first break. Langwarrin were put on the back foot early, and struggled to ever work their way back into the contest. Hastings’ star man Luke Hewitt contributed with his second consecutive four goal performance, while his goal kicking opponent at the other end of the ground was kept quiet. Normally dominant Langwarrin forward Jesse Murphy was limited to just one major for the game. Hastings kept their convincing lead throughout the day, running out 13.13 (91) to 9.10 (64) winners.

Frankston Pines too slick for Strikers SOCCER

By Craig MacKenzie FRANKSTON Pines combined pace with a slick counter-attacking style to overrun Peninsula Strikers 5-2 in Saturday’s State 2 South-East derby at Centenary Park. Strikers started on a positive note and in the 6th minute a cross from Tommy Hawkins on the right set up Ryan Thompson whose shot was parried for a corner by Pines’ keeper Jarrod Nardino. Two minutes later Pines ruthlessly exposed the lack of pace in the Strikers’ defence when CJ Hodgson sent Mitch Lander clear through the middle and his left-foot strike from the edge of the area flew past advancing Strikers’ keeper Ash Kupre to make it 1-0. The home team’s defence was found wanting again in the 14th minute when it failed to deal with a long throw from the left and when Pines’ captain Graham Hill was tripped inside the box referee Manny Haractsis pointed to the spot. Hodgson had no problem converting and Strikers were staring into the abyss. Pines were forced into a reshuffle in the 28th minute when Luca Vanni had to be replaced by big Ioasa Saemo who joined Lander up front with Hill reverting to central defence. Strikers hit back in the 34th minute when Pines’ defenders failed to attack a Danny Brookes cross from the left and Thompson was at the back post to sidefoot home. Lander should have restored Pines’ two-goal cushion four minutes later but his close-range effort was blocked. In the 41st minute Chapman came off second best in a clash with Saemo which incensed Strikers’ bench but appeals to the nearby assistant referee to become involved fell on deaf ears. Saemo was booked and Chapman had to be replaced at half-time by Kevin Derry. In the 56th minute Lander again motored onto a pinpoint Hodgson through ball only to blast his attempt high and wide. Three minutes later Strikers’ central defender Michael Nugent headed wide from a Ryan Wilson free-kick from the right. In the 61st minute Brookes switched play to the right with a superb pass and Nathan Smith showed great control to bring the ball down as he charged into the area but his low shot flashed wide of the far post. A minute later it was 3-1 after Jack Carter sent Lander down the left and

his cutback was knocked in by Saemo from point-blank range. Kupre was injured in the process but after a lengthy treatment period was able to continue which was just as well as there was no back-up keeper on the bench. In the 72nd minute Steve McClelland took too long to clear allowing Lander to block then tuck away the rebound to make it 4-1. A brilliant break in the 84th minute was triggered by Kurt Wagner-Goldsworthy who sent Hodgson clear on the right and his low cross in behind the defensive line was slammed in by Saemo to make it 5-1. In the 91st minute Wilson did well on the left of the area and his cutback found Thompson who was brought down. Wilson converted the resultant penalty to round off the scoreline. When the final whistle sounded it confirmed what we’d all known for some time – there was only one team out there that was prepared to meet the physical and mental demands of a derby. The other team received a scathing assessment of its performance from

coach Lenny Greenan in a hushed Strikers’ dressing room straight after the match. Femi Orenuga’s association with the club has ended due to visa problems. It’s believed that the former Everton academy striker has been sent back to the UK by Australian authorities. Although Strikers are now five points behind Pines in the race to avoid the drop there is some good news at Centenary Park. The club hopes to sign two players from South Melbourne’s NPL under20s squad and another two from State 1 South-East outfit Morwell Pegasus this week. Meanwhile Pines’ defender Luke Murray dismissed last week’s report that linked him with a switch to Seaford United but it’s believed that Somerville Eagles are keen to sign Pines’ playmaker Will O’Brien to bolster their promotion push in State 5 South. In NPLW news local consortium Southern United lost 5-0 to Heidelberg United at Monterey Reserve on Sunday but made its more fancied opponent work every inch of the way. Southern continued its player devel-

opment policy with two 16-year-olds, Sarah Tebbutt and Niamh Mclure, making their senior debuts in defence. Hong Kong international Avery Lau leaves in early July to prepare for the Asian Games. Southern gaffer Aaron Myatt is keen to bring in a striker and a central defender before the transfer window shuts at the end of the month. He has been tracking a US striker currently playing in Sweden and Southern is investigating the possibilities of arranging a visa for her. Southern’s under-12s recorded their biggest win of the season with a resounding 11-1 result. Southern’s goals came from Emilia Ingles (4), Lauren Riha (2), Jasmine Smith (2), Eden McKeown (2) and Chiara Renzella. The under-14s continued their title tilt with a 3-0 win thanks to goals from Candy Kilderry, Rhianna Cousens and Rhys McKenna. The under-16s won 4-2 with Monique Lapenta (2), Haylea Porter and Briana Dias scoring for Southern while the under 19s lost 5-0 and featured a number of players from the under-14 group.

In NPL2 news Langwarrin lost 1-0 at home to Box Hill United last Saturday. Attacking midfielder Mehdi Sarwari made his debut for Langy but former Melbourne Victory midfielder Callum Goulding has quit the club and is set to sign with another NPL outfit. Langy had the best of the chances in the first half but Box Hill keeper Matt Nemes was in fine form denying Liam Baxter, Matt Luak and John Kuol. Two minutes into the second half the visitors struck in a lightning-quick break that proved to be the decisive moment of the contest. Anthony Rizk motored clear on the left and his far-post cross picked out the unmarked Andrew Le Page whose low first-time volley gave Langy keeper Robbie Acs no chance. Box Hill proved to be tough to break down for the rest of the match while maintaining a threat on the break. Langy is considering whether or not to add to its senior squad and a decision is imminent given that the NPL transfer window shuts this week. In State 3 South-East news Skye United dropped to third after Brighton defeated Seaford United 2-0 at Dendy Park last weekend thanks to an 18thminute goal from David Nicholas and an injury-time second from Nick Bale. With Boroondara-Carey easily accounting for Collingwood in the other catch-up match Skye now is two points off the pace. Skye should learn the extent of the recent knee injury to captain Marcus Collier this week while defender Saj Sugrim has joined Endeavour United. In State 4 South news Baxter has lost midfielder Matt Morgan to Hampton Park United while striker Liam Kilner has quit citing work reasons. But Baxter head coach Francis Beck is buoyed by the anticipated influx of five newcomers from local clubs and they are all expected to train at Baxter Park this week. Next weekend’s games: SATURDAY 3pm: Langwarrin v Ballarat City (Lawton Park), Geelong Galaxy Utd v Southern Utd (Banyul Warri Reserve), Malvern City v Mornington (Kooyong Park), Peninsula Strikers v Mazenod (Centenary Park), Frankston Pines v Doncaster Rovers (Monterey Reserve), Brighton v Skye Utd (Dendy Park), Seaford Utd v Noble Park Utd (North Seaford Reserve), Springvale City v Baxter (Ross Reserve), Somerville Eagles v White Star Dandenong (Somerville Secondary College), Aspendale v Bunyip District (Jack Grut Reserve).

Clarke claims third in ‘brutally hard’ race By Ben Triandafillou MORNINGTON Cycles owner Brad Clarke competed in one of the world’s toughest mountain bike races in South Africa on Wednesday 28 March. Clarke partnered with common competitor, Rohin Adams, in the gruelling eight-day Absa Cape Epic race and covered more than 650km of rugged land. With 650 teams entered into the competition, the pair managed to claim third place in the Masters category (40-49 years old) and finished 30th overall. For Clarke, it was his second time attempting the race which included 13,530m of climbing – that’s one and half times higher than Mt Everest and the first word that came to his mind when describing the course was “untamed”. “It’s just rugged, raw and brutally hard,” he said. “Every single kilometre you have to work for.” “There are no easy trails, and if a section did look easy, it’d be full of sand or jagged rocks.” While the track is incredibly demanding physically and mentally, Clarke said that that is exactly the sort of challenge which lures him back. “It’s a real adventure and an amazing event,” he said. “It’s extremely rewarding after you’ve put in all of that hard work in training, and then to complete the course as well.” It has taken Clarke just over six months of training to prepare for the race in which he competed against some of the best riders from around the world.

Having competed once before, he knew exactly what it took to prepare for the event but said it was “actually tougher than the first time”. “I was a bit naive [the first time] and didn’t realise what I had gotten myself into,” he said. “That’s why it was tougher this time as I knew exactly what I was in for. Whenever I got unwell in the lead-up to the race, it would stress me out a lot. “You’ve got to get yourself to be able to commit to really hard, tough training to get to that top level. There are more hours a week that you need to put in, and it’s a bit more specific training to the race as well as you need to be able to ride for 100 kilometres at full speed. “You have those ups and downs in the preparation but [having competed before] it helped give me the confidence that I was undertaking the right training.” There was no financial gain for Clarke in undertaking this adventure but he said that overcoming the challenges of the course has been a massive reward. Clarke doesn’t believe he is ready to back up again next year but said he would “definitely like to go back”. He thinks 2020 would be a possibility but it would “depend on my situation and how I’m travelling.”

Western Port push persistent Gators BASKETBALL

THE Western Port Steelers fought valiantly but were unable to pull off an upset in their clash against top of the table Shepparton Gators in Division One Big V competition last Saturday. Western Port’s Dylan Travis did his best to help his side to victory with an impressive 31 point performance, but ultimately it was not enough to earn a win. Shepparton Gators proved too strong for their opponents, with Matt Bartlett, Cameron Vines, and Spencer Coleman scoring 28, 26, and 22

points respectively. Western Port stayed in contention, but ultimately fell short by 9 points (79-70) as Shepparton secured their eighth consecutive win. Elsewhere in Division One, the Chelsea Gulls squared up against the Sunbury Jets in a clash they would have been strongly expected to win. The 3rd vs 11th clash saw Chelsea stretch their muscle to extend their winning run to five straight games. The bulk of Chelsea’s points came from Corey Standerfer and Matthew Brasser, who scored 45 points between them. Sunbury Jets remained in the con-

test, but could not push on to claim an upset win, as the Chelsea Gulls secure the victory (81-73). In Division Two Basketball, the Southern Peninsula Sharks secured 4th place on the table with an emphatic victory over last place North East Bushrangers. Colin Voss was the standout performer for Southern Peninsula, as he put up 26 points, making 10 of his 15 attempted shots. Lloyd Wright was the shining light for the Bushrangers with a valiant 23 point effort, but it was little help as his side went down to the Southern Peninsula Sharks (61-77).

Last Sunday also saw the Mornington Breakers pull of a dominant victory over the Coburg Giants in Women’s Division Two Competition. The two sides, placed 8th and 9th going into the round, looked as if they would be evenly matched at the start of the game, but the final score told a far different story. Ashleigh Wright and Erin Ludwick were the star performers for Mornington, as they put up 53 points between the two of them. Coburg never got close to a rampant Mornington, with the final margin standing at an astonishing 31 points (51-82)




Big V competition has been on break as the teams earned a well deserved rest, but will be back up and running this weekend. This weekend will see the Mornington Breakers travel to Darebin Stadium to take on the Collingwood All Stars in Women’s Division Two action. In Men’s Division Two, Southern Peninsula Sharks will take on Pakenham Warriors next Sunday. Division One action on Saturday will see Shepparton Gators host the Chelsea Gulls, while the Sunbury Jets will host the Western Port Steelers.
