‘Unemployed workers’ find united voice

Neil Walker neil@baysidenews.com.au A UNION for the unemployed may seem like a contradiction in terms but that’s exactly what an organisation setting up shop in Frankston is all about. Australian Unemployed Workers’ Union volunteers will host fortnightly meetings at Frankston Arts Centre to help people on the dole negotiate the welfare system and know their rights when dealing with Centrelink and job agencies. “Our mission at the Australian Unemployed Workers’ Union is to fight for the basic human rights of unemployed Australians, most of whom are living in poverty,” the group’s mission statement says. “We are fighting back against Australia’s unfair welfare system. It was recently revealed that the basic Newstart payment is only half of what Australians need to live out of poverty.” Frankston co-organiser Paul Callanan said the Frankston branch of the AUWU is open to people “from Portsea to Mentone and Crib Point to Cranbourne” and it is free to join. “It makes sense to have a Frankston branch taking in all those areas,” he said. The organisation “run for the unemployed by the unemployed” is not a registered union and is an incorporated association, according to Consumer Affairs Victoria records. The group’s website declares “offi-

cial endorsements from National Union of Workers (NUW) and the Electrical Trades Union (ETU)”. Federal Liberal Employment Minister Michaelia Cash slammed the AUWU in June, saying the group’s “sole purpose appears to be keeping members out of gainful employment and encouraging them to shirk their responsibilities.” Mr Callanan — a former taxi driver, multi-storey plumber and employee of the Cain government era Victorian Economic Development Corporation — said he is helping the AUWU with spreading the word about the nascent Frankston branch online. The AUWU is calling on all Centrelink payments to be increased to $517 a week; work for the dole programs to be abolished and the axing of privately owned job agencies in favour or reinstating the Commonwealth Employment Service to get the unemployed back to work. AUWU Frankston branch convener Fae Roth, a Hastings resident and former factory company director, said she got involved in helping the organisation after hearing about its work on community radio station 3CR. “I don’t think the general public realises how tough some people are doing it,” she said. “Unemployment, redundancies and job losses are affecting people directly more than anything else I can think of in horrific ways.” Continued Page 4

Festive feast for all planned

CHRISTMAS is coming so volunteers are starting preparation for this year’s Chelsea Community Christmas Lunch to provide a three-course meal for the homeless and disadvantaged. The annual event also offers company for those who have nowhere else to go during festive festivities. “Last year there were approximately 80 guests who enjoyed a threecourse meal, Christmas carols, gift

bags, hampers and other giveaways,” co-organiser Vanessa Curry said. “Most importantly, a sense of community was provided to those who would have otherwise been on their own at Christmas time.” St Joseph’s Parish and primary school students muck in with Chelsea Community Church of Christ, Chelsea Uniting Church and St Vincent de Paul volunteers each year to cater for up to 100 guests on

Christmas Day. Christmas cards and banners to decorate the Parish Hall for the community lunch are being made this month. Help is always appreciated and anyone interested in registering as a guest or who would like to donate in some way, can see chelseacommunitychristmaslunch.org.au or call St Josephs Parish on 9772 2211 for more information.

Displaying tolerance: Cousins Issie, left, and Alana relate to universal human rights in their entries in this year’s Kingston For Human Rights Art Exhibition. Picture: Gary Sissons

Bins out, in and now improved

Tolerance the talk on human rights HUMAN rights advocate and lawyer Julian Burnside QC will be guest speaker at a Kingston For Human Rights event this month. The high-profile and outspoken barrister, an advocate for refugees, will talk about “Celebrating Tolerance” — the theme of this year’s children’s poster art competition — at Parkdale’s Shirley Burke Theatre on Wednesday 22 November. The poster art contest is a Kingston For Human Rights project aimed at

raising awareness in the community about the Universal Declaration of Human Rights mandated by the United Nations in 1948 in the wake of World War II to set out fundamental human rights for all peoples and countries. “To define tolerance can be almost as difficult as to actually be tolerant, but these young artists seem to realise that tolerance and peace go hand in hand,” Kingston For Human Rights committee member Philippa Rayment said. Pupils from Clayton South Primary,

Mentone Grammar Junior, Cheltenham Primary, St Joseph’s Primary, Mentone Girls Secondary, Cornish College, Westall Secondary and Haileybury College’s Keysborough campus have submitted artworks on display at the Shirley Burke Theatre until 24 November. “Not everybody in the world gets to do meditating so it represents tolerance with peace signs,” Mentone Grammar pupil Alana said. “We need peace in the world and to

make the world a better place, so the hands I drew joined together holding a world with the peace sign inside it,” Cheltenham Primary School pupil Issie said. n The Kingston For Human Rights Art Exhibition marking the 69th anniversay of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights will be held at the Shirley Burke Theatre, 64 Parkers Rd, Parkdale on Wednesday 22 November, 7.30pm.See kfhr.com.au or call 9587 5959 for more details and free tickets.

FIRST the bins were out, then they were back in. Now rubbish bins at Patterson River are getting an upgrade thanks to the state government. Parks Victoria recently reversed a decision to remove the bins in favour of a “carry in carry out” rubbish policy for visitors to the area to keep the bins in place. Local residents complained about the earmarking of the removal of bins. Carrum Labor MP Sonya Kilkenny has announced $120,000 of state taxpayers’ money will now go towards replacing 28 bins at Patterson River with purpose-built waste receptacles. Ms Kilkenny said an extra 12 bins on the circuit walk will be added to the existing 28 bins in the area. “This a great result for our local area and I want to thank the local community for their advocacy,” Ms Kilkenny said. “These new bins are purpose-built to prevent rubbish flowing into our waterways, and will ensure our marine life and local environment is protected.”

‘Unemployed workers’ have united voice Continued from Page 1 She said the factory she worked at for many years was eventually forced to shut its doors due to cheap overseas imports. The group opposes mandatory drug testing for the unemployed, increased waiting times for the dole and “the completely unjustified expansion of cashless welfare” featuring debit cards for those receiving welfare payments. An editorial in the September edition of its Fightback! newsletter states: “With the Australian Labor Party and a number on the cross bench failing to commit to voting one way or the other on a number of issues, it’s up to us to let them know why they should oppose these punitive measures”. “I’m hoping our Frankston branch will be the prototype and role model that will inspire AUWU branches to open up all over Melbourne,” Ms Roth said. “It’s just so extreme what the parliamentarians get compared to how the unemployed are treated.”

Author speaks GUEST author Roza Riaikkenen will discuss her book The Laws of Life and other works at Mentone Public Library’s series seven of An Author for All Seasons, 11am, Saturday 25 November. The library is at the rear, 36 Florence St, Mentone.

Saddling up for club’s major milestone A CLUB with a reputation for horsing around will celebrate its 60th birthday early next year. Mentone Pony Club is inviting past members to get back in touch to saddle up for the anniversary celebrations in February next year. The pony club currently has 24 members. Club district commissioner Jemma Dunstan is looking forward to celebrating six decades of horse riding in the region despite some setbacks over the years.

“It’s a grand age for a not for profit organisation that has weathered major events that have caused other pony clubs to fold including the global financial crisis, equine influenza and residential housing decreasing available land,” she said. “We are located on the reserve at the corner of Learmonth and Thompsons Rd in Patterson Lakes and this is our second relocation in the 60 years of running.” The Mentone Pony Club was located at the old

Mentone Racecourse, then later relocated to Pillars Rd in Bangholme for 38 years before being forced to move to Patterson Lakes with the help of Kingston Council early last year. n Past members who want to attend the Mentone Pony Club’s 60th birthday celebrations, planned for Sunday 11 February, featuring riding demonstrations and a spit roast barbecue can contact Jemma Dunstan at dunstanjemma@gmail.com or at facebook. com/mentoneponyclub online.

Buyers and sellers lose out in deceptions POLICE warn online buyers and sellers of items – and even properties for rent – to beware of scammers after a spate of complaints last week. In one instance, the seller of a mobile phone in Clarinda was seriously injured after arranging to meet a potential buyer in the street outside his Sundowner Avenue home, 10pm, Monday 6 November. The male “buyer” and a mate arrived in a black Mercedes Benz SUV and agreed to buy the phone, which was valued at $700. He gave the seller, 39, an envelope supposedly containing the cash and then attempted to push past him and get into the car. The seller stood his ground between the “buyer” and the car and began counting the “cash” – which he soon realised was counterfeit. By this time the “buyer” had forced his way into the car which was driven off with the seller being dragged along underneath the passenger door. He received shoulder and arm injuries and lacerations to his legs and was hospitalised for treatment. In another instance, a Chelsea man attempting to lease an apartment answered an online advertisement for a Clayton property, Wednesday 1 November. He began negotiations with the supposed “owner” and agreed to rent the Clayton Rd site for $1605 per month after paying a bond for a similar amount: a total of $3210 in advance. After extensive online interaction, the prospective “tenant”, 26, agreed to transfer the money into the “landlord’s” bank account and, a week later, went around to inspect the property. However, it had a “For Rent” sign out front and was being managed by a real estate agent who told him his deal with the online “landlord” must have been a hoax. Detectives say they have a suspect in mind. The online buyer of a car was also tricked into handing over a $350 deposit on a car at Chelsea which was not owned by the man who took his money, Friday 10 November. The buyer, 45, of Carrum Downs, saw an advertisement for an $800 Hyundai sedan which was not roadworthy and not registered. He visited the property, spoke to a woman, and inspected the car before agreeing to pay $650 for it. A man arrived saying he was the owner of the car but that the keys were at his sister’s and he should return the next day with the full amount and take the car. The “seller” then handed over the car’s service books and registration papers as some form of surety. Next day the prospective buyer returned but no one was home. He texted over the next few days but got no reply. After calling in the police a man living nearby was identified as a suspect. Investigations are continuing. Detective Senior Sergeant Matt Stuber, of Kingston CIB, said buyers and sellers should “be careful because unscrupulous dealers often take advantage of the young and naive”. “People should beware the pitfalls of handing over cash,” he said. “Our preferred method of payment is PayPal which provides some form of security to buyers. “Also, buyers and sellers should be aware of their surroundings when dealing with strangers.”

Charged over indecent acts

94 31following A MAN has been charged a series of alleged indecent acts near beaches at Mentone and Brighton on Saturday and Sunday 11 and 12 November. Police said the victims “quickly turned away” from the man and reported him to lifesavers. A 52-year-old, of no fixed address, was arrested on Sunday. He has been charged with two counts of directing a sexual act towards another person and bailed to appear at Moorabbin Magistrates’ Court on Friday 17 November. Police thanked members of the public for their assistance in identifying him.

Beach thefts

MORDIALLOC beachgoers were robbed of 6 319a valuables on Monday afternoon. Police said Caucasian youth, Maori youth and Caucasian girl, all aged about 16, were suspected of stealing numerous items from bags left on the sand while their owners were in the water. The girl was said to have been wearing a rainbow-coloured jumpsuit. Items stolen include cash and sports shoes valued at $450 from a 16-year-old bather; pants, cash and a handbag from a 14-year-old; travel card, handbag and perfume from a 16-year-old and $120 cash from an 18-year-old. When challenged, one of the trio threatened a beachgoer as they ran off towards Parkdale station. Anyone with information is urged to call Crime Stoppers 1800 333 000. Dispute turns violent A DISPUTE between neighbours in Mordialloc erupted into violence over the weekend when an elderly man was allegedly hit over the head with a hammer. Police allege a verbal argument in Barkly St got out of hand when an 86-year-old man was struck by his neighbour who is in his early 50s, Saturday 11 November. The elderly man, who received serious but not life threatening injuries, was rushed by ambulance to the Monash Medical Centre. His neighbour was charged with intentionally causing injury and assault with a weapon and bailed to appear at Moorabbin Magistrates’ Court in January.

Arrest after assault

A FRANKSTON man was arrested after an 87-yearold woman was allegedly sexually assaulted at Aspendale station, Friday 22 September. The 40-year-old man was charged with sexual assault by Transit Unit detectives. The woman, holding a walking frame, was waiting at the station on Nepean Highway about 11.25am when a man called out to her and asked if she wanted money. He then approached the woman and kissed her on the cheek before allegedly sexually assaulting her. The woman broke free and boarded the train. It is believed the man boarded a Frankston-bound train and got off at Carrum about midday. He has been bailed to appear at Melbourne Magistrates’ Court, Friday 15 December.

Dedication to health the ‘best in the nation’ THE Atticus Health Medical Clinic in Carrum has received a welcome shot in the arm as the winners of the 2017 award for Best General Practice in Australia by the Royal Australian College of General Practitioners. Owner Dr Floyd Gomes started the clinic four and a half years ago and is proud of what his practice has achieved in that time. “It’s a big deal -- I think it validates our willingness to be a bit different and try to extend beyond the clinic, and that takes a lot of effort from a lot of people along the way, including our doctors, our nurses, and our receptionist.” The award was handed out by the RACGP, Australia’s largest organisation representing general practitioners. They represent more than 22,000 GPs working in Australia. Atticus Health won the award for best General Practice in Victoria, before being named the best in the country. “We get out in the community, and we really try and support our patients 24/7. We have our own internal after hours service that takes calls at all hours in the night, and we try our best to support our patients once they’ve left the consulting room,” Dr Gomes said. “We’re not keen to just go through the motions, we reflect on if what we’re doing has had an actual impact, and if it hasn’t, we’ll change what we’re doing.” The Atticus Health practice offers a number of services to make sure they are keeping their patients healthy, including general practitioner services, a gym, healthcare at high schools and nursing homes, as well as talks about health at local football clubs. “We try our best to treat each patient in the community as an individual and look at their needs and stories, and that’s made a big difference. ‘We’ve been welcomed and integrated into that community, and we try our best to help out by keeping our patients well from a preventative health perspective. We’re keen to give our patients wings as opposed to just Band-Aids.” Atticus Health also has clinics in Hastings, Bittern, and Somerville.

Drive to paint brighter futures A CALL has gone out asking for contributions to a good cause in the name of art helping people struggling with mental health or disabilities. Not-for-profit mental health and disability support organisation Wellways and artist Annabelle Carver are on the look out for unwanted art supplies donations to ensure the paint never runs dry at community art groups. “Art and creativity is a fantastic way for any person to express their dreams, hopes, fears, happiness or any other emotion,” Wellways south eastern Melbourne regional manager Marinette Dames said. “People can show their feelings and experiences in a way that cannot be done using words.” Ms Carver struggled to live a productive life after suffering from anxiety and depression from the age of 14 until 22, before seeking help and finding producing art can be a way to keep the fog of depression at bay. “Art therapy classes need art supplies and

I’ve been wanting to do a charity paint drive for a while,” she said. Ms Carver said a weekly Artwell program at Frankston Art Centre’s Cube 37 facilitated by Peter Fanton is just one such art group that can benefit from donated arts supplies. The Artwell program enables people to practice mental wellness through painting, drawing and sculpture. Unwanted art and craft supplies can be dropped off at Wellways, 45 Davey St, Frankston or by calling Wellways on 9784 6800 to arrange collection. See wellways.org for more information on the organisation’s work helping people needing community care. Brushing up on wellness: Artist Annabelle Carver is helping collect donated art and craft supplies for community art groups. Picture: Yanni

No fix yet for PARC plumbing problem Neil Walker neil@baysidenews.com.au A PLUMBING problem continues to plague the two main swimming pools at the Peninsula Aquatic Recreation Centre. The PARC’s main 50-metre pool, aquatic playground and a learn-toswim pool have been closed for more than a month after a plumbing system malfunction. Leisure centre management initially predicted the pools would reopen by 27 October but the plumbing problem seems to be more complex than first thought. “Following a critical failure of the complex plumbing infrastructure within the 50m pool balance tank at PARC, specialist independent consultants have been engaged to assess the cause and to redesign the infrastructure to ensure such an issue does not occur again,” Peninsula Leisure CEO Tim Gledhill said last week. “Peninsula Leisure is working closely with Frankston City Council on this matter. We are currently waiting to receive the final assessment report before repair works can commence. “Until the report is received and the substantial works commence, we are unable to confirm when we will reopen.” The gym, wellness centre and other fitness operations remain open to the public. Peninsula Leisure Pty Ltd was established in 2012 and is wholly owned by Frankston Council.

The company manages and operates the PARC and the Pines Forest Aquatic Centre in Frankston North. Councillors voted to reappoint Peninsula Leisure chair Roseanne Healy and board member Phillip Johnson, also the chief financial officer of South East Water, last month until October 2020.

Five Peninsula Leisure board members are collectively paid about $116,000 a year. PARC won the statewide Aquatic Recreation Victoria Facility Management Award last year. Council statistics show about 850,000 people visit the sports, swimming and recreation centre each year.

Councillors voted in May to stop Peninsula Leisure “tendering for projects outside of their core obligation, that being the management of PARC and the Pines pool”. It emerged that Peninsula Leisure had talks with Mornington Peninsula Shire council about possibly managing peninsula sports centres.

The shire announced in August that the management of five of its leisure centres has been outsourced to private operator Belgravia Leisure from 29 October. Mr Gledhill said Peninsula Leisure will keep PARC members up to date with the progress of the plumbling solution.

Life and times of legendary Bob Dylan AN uncanny likeness of His Bobness is heading down the highway to visit Kingston as part of a state tour celebrating the life, times and music of Bob Dylan. DYLANesque — The Bob Dylan Story will hit the stage at Kingston Arts Centre on Friday 24 November featuring singer and musician Jeff Jenkins taking audiences through the times that are a-changin’ in a two-hour narrated concert. The tribute show charts the humble beginnings of Dylan’s career, his pivotal relationships and break-ups, his trailblazing songs of the 1960s and 1970s and their continuing influence on popular music and culture. “I read everything I could get my hands on about Dylan and worked all the fascinating stories into a show that would make a great night of rock ‘n’ roll,” Jenkins said. “Dylan is an intriguing subject because of his constant evolution as an artist, immense catalogue of work and his personality. “He’s a man who will always march to the beat of his own drum.” Jenkins opens the show with the extraordinary

tale from 1961, when an intrepid teenager hitch-hiked his way from Duluth Minnesota to New York City with only a guitar and $10 in his pocket, busking to make a living. This same young man would go on to become one of the most successful and revered songwriters of all time. Dylan classics including Blowin’ in the Wind, Lay Lady Lay, Like a Rolling Stone, All Along the Watchtower and A Hard Rain’s Gonna Fall will be performed by Jenkins backed by four musicians. Renowned music critic Glenn A. Baker described the DYLANesque show as “one of the most engaging and enjoyable couple of hours I’ve spent in ages”. “Jeff Jenkins not only sounds like His Bobness, but he understands him, even inhabits him.” n DYLANesque — The Bob Dylan Story will be performed at Kingston Arts Centre, 979 Nepean Highway, Moorabbin on Friday 24 November, 8pm.Tickets $35, concession $30, groups of more than six $25 at kingstonarts.com.au/music/ dylanesque or by calling 9556 4440.

Hotel’s revamp ‘too big to handle alone’ Stephen Taylor steve@baysidenews.com.au CONTINENTAL Hotel proprietor Julian Gerner has put the historic Sorrento pub back on the market after “coming to the conclusion that [its redevelopment] is too big a project to handle alone”. He now wants to sell the 1875 icon for “north of $20 million” and then lease it back from the new owner and run it as his own business. Asked why he had changed his mind and listed the hotel after confirming to The News last month that he was determined to see its transformation through, he said: “There were a couple of reasons [but] it was a financial decision because I don’t have the kind of money [needed] to go to the market.” “Hopefully I will get the pub back in the end.” Mr Gerner accepted that “cynics will be cynics” but denied suggestions he had always intended to sell the hotel after gaining relevant permits. “The plan was always to finish the development,” he said. “I own it 100 per cent [but] there was originally talk of a joint-venture partner [coming in]. He agreed the property was a “lot more buyable now with permits in place than it was three years ago”. Sorrento chamber of commerce vice president Marc Clavin said he was disappointed the hotel precinct would remain inactive over the busy summer period. “It represents a huge slice of the street; it’s the gateway to Sorrento and bookends the shopping strip,” he

said. Nepean Conservation Group president Dr Ursula de Jong said the impending sale was “something the community thought would happen”. “We always had concerns that he [Mr Gerner] would not have the money to take it forward,” she said. “The fact that it is up for sale again is a worry because we don’t know who is going to buy it.”

The developer reportedly paid the long-standing Di Pietro family about $15 million in July 2016 and then fought skirmishes with the Mornington Peninsula Shire and Nepean Conservation Group at the Victorian Civil and Administrative Tribunal over his proposed changes. These centred on the building of 16 apartments at the rear, extra hotel rooms and commercial premises and

the contentious purchase of an adjoining – previously public – car park. “Buying the car park [for a reported $1.8 million] was the missing link,” Mr Gerner said. “I have worked hard to get the development as a whole into a state which I think is viable,” he said. “There’s a lot of money to be spent but I have also spent a lot. “I have worked hard with the shire,

Heritage Victoria and architectural advisers on the project and I have gone as far as I can go.” The property is listed with both CBRE and Sotheby’s who will look locally and overseas for a new owner – even in China. Perhaps hoping to improve sales prospects, Mr Gerner added: “There are no more regulatory hurdles to overcome.” The hotel has remained vacant since settlement last year. “It used to be a thriving destination for young people,” Mr Clavin said. “It had the bars and a disco – now there’s nothing …” He echoed a commonly-held view that the hotel could have been kept going as a viable concern in the meantime “at least until the wrecking ball came through”. Dr de Jong said the state of the façade of the historic building, which is on the state register, was disappointing. “The limestone is failing, the windows are rotting, the stucco is coming off and there is a tonne of vegetation growing on the turret,” she said. Compounding their concerns is the sale board which highlights “all the things we fought against”. Dr de Jong said the group hoped to meet with the shire to discuss the terms and conditions of Mr Gerner’s development permits. “The shire has an obligation because the hotel is in a heritage zone and it must decide how it is going to deal with the new owner,” she said.

100 YEARS AGO THIS WEEK...

Downward retains seat as Nationalists win Compiled by Brodie Cowburn THE State Elections were held on Thursday and resulted in the defeat of the Ministrial Party. A feature of the results is the success achieved by candidates standing in the interests of the Farmers’ Union. There was very little excitement in the Mornington electorate. Mr Downward (the old member) was opposed by Mr R. M. Anderson. *** GNR. H. M. Goodwin, second son of M. M. E. Goodwin, Cranbourne Rd Frankston, has been officially reported wounded. At present the nature of the wound is not known. Two of his brothers are also at the front, one of whom has been wounded twice. *** GUNNER H. G. Upton, previously reported dangerously wounded, has made satisfactory improvement and is now in Norwich Hospital England. *** WE are pleased to note that Mrs Alf Davis of Mount Eliza, who underwent a serious operation at the Womens Hospital last week, is now making satisfactory progress towards recovery. *** ARCHBISHOP Clarke of Melbourne will visit Hastings during the weekend and will preach at All Saint’s Church Tyabb, on Sunday Nov 18th at 3p.m. *** AN epidemic has broken out on Mr Slaney’s place, “Nyora” amongst the young lambs, a number of them dy-

ing from some lung trouble. *** A VERY successful and thoroughly enjoyable evening was spent in the Frankston Hall, on Friday, November 9th, as a result of the efforts of the local Red Cross and the Wattle Club to provide funds to enable them to give the men at Langwarrin Camp a Xmas treat. The first part of the evening was devoted to a guessing competition which was won by Miss Nolan and Mr Oates, the prizes for which were presented by Mrs A. D. Box and Mrs Hartland. After an excellent supper, dancing commenced and was continued with enthusiasm till morning. *** A JAPANESE Fair will be held in the Somerville Mechanics’ Hall, on Wednesday afternoon and evening, in aid of the Somerville State School Patriotic funds. *** A GOOD many applications to have the electric light installed have been made in this district, and inquiries are being made when it is likely that the light will be installed. *** ON Monday evening next a public citizens’ meeting will be held in the Frankston Mechanics’ Hall under the auspices of the local branch of the W.C.T.U. and Rechabites, when Mrs Helen Barton, the noted temperance lecturer, will give an address. This lady who is spoken of as a gifted speaker, and the queen of Scottish orators, is at present touring Australia in the interest of the W.C.T.U.

*** THE usual Wattle Club dance will not be held this (Saturday) evening, owing to the hall not being available. *** T. REEVES begs to announced that he has opened a Milk Round. And will reside in Frankston as soon as a suitable place is available. *** ALEX. Scott and Co. Pty. Ltd will hold a Special Sale of Horses as 70 Horses and Ponies. From Balnarring‚—12 Horses and Ponies. From Moorooduc—10 Medium Draughts and Light Horses. From Red Hill—8 Useful Horses and 2 Good Ponies. *** Somerville Hospital. I desire to contradict a report that a patient has died in my hospital from blood poisoning. This is absolutely untrue. Since the hospital was open 2 years ago, no patient has died of any infectious disease whatever. MAUD HODGINS. *** The drowning season. To The Editor. Sir.—I desire to bring before your readers the work and objects of the Royal Life Saving Society to promote technical education in life saving and resuscitation of the apparently drowned. A short time ago, two men were crossing the river Yarra at Melbourne in a small boat, when it capsized and although there were 10.000 people on the river bank yet no attempt was made to endeavour to rescue them from a watery grave; both men were drowned. During the past season a very

large number of lives have been lost through the floods, and it is quite evident that the work of the society is unknown to the majority of the people in Victoria. Last year no less than 154 persons lost their lives by accidental drowning in this State. There are hundreds of abortive efforts at rescue every year, and there are many in which a single tragedy is made into a double one through the absence of a little simple knowledge on the part of the intended rescuer. The knowledge of the Schafer method of resuscitation is a most useful one and can be learnt in five minutes, and is invaluable where a person is brought out of the water apparently drowned. Cases are on record where apparently drowned persons have been restored after many hours of hard work. That the ability ought to be cultivated is unquestionable. It should be our chief object, and the chances of successfully rendering efficient and increased. *** THE monthly meeting of the Council was held on Thursday, 8th November. Present Crs Oates, (President) Clements, Watt, Mason, Murray, Longmuir, Unthank and Hodgins Apology for non attendance was received from Cr Turner. The minutes of the previous meeting were read and confirmed. CORRESPONDENCE From Country Roads Board, stating that £300 for Frankston-Flinders Road, and £300 for Point Nepean Road, has been allotted for maintain-

ance for the current financial year— Received. MR Brody asking if there is any objection to a plate being placed in the gardens in Frankston to commemorate the memory of the late John Reynolds. Cr Hodgins moved that while the council is in sympathy with the bereavement they did not think the garden a proper place to put a plate. Seconded by Cr Clements and carried. *** SATURDAY last, 10th November, was the day fixed by the Mount Eliza residents to unveil a Roll of Honor Board at the local State School, in memory of 22 of the local young men who had enlisted and fought in defence of their country, some of whom had paid the supreme sacrifice, some had been wounded, while some were still at the front. Great interest was taken in the event. *** CR LONGMUIR brought under the notice of the Council the case of an old man who was incapable, ill and unable to look after himself, being dependent on the charity of neighbors for his existence. He was bedridden. Cr Mason moved that the Health Officer be asked to look into the case and take steps to have the old man removed to some institution. Seconded by Cr Longmuir and carried. *** From the pages of the Mornington Standard, 17 November 1917

Panthers purr on day one PROVINCIAL

Swashbuckling innings: Pearcedale dominated Sorrento in their MPCA Provincal match. Picture: Andrew Hurst

By IT Gully PEARCEDALE is just 39 runs away from victory after dominating Sorrento on the opening day of their MPCA Provincial clash. Sorrento won just one battle for the afternoon, the toss, and it did them no good at all. The Sorras were put to the sword and made to look second rate by the Panthers, rolled for just 98. Pearcedale’s Chris Dew started with the new ball and had an immediate impact, removing both Sorrento openers, Corey Harris (4) and Tom Clarke (5). At that stage the Sorras were 2/12. Things really turned pair-shaped for the home side when Jedd Falck was run out for 10, just as he and skipper Bobby Wilson were resurrecting the innings. Beau Scoble then got involved for the Panthers, including picking up Leigh Poholke for a blob, and finished the afternoon with 2/16 from nine over, Dew finished with 4/43 from 23 and skipper Kaine Smith jumped on the gravy train and cleaned up with 3/8 from 7.5 overs. Wilson top scored for the Sorras with 22, while Liam O’Connor chimed in with 19. With 28 overs left in the day’s play, Pearcedale lost opener Brad Trotter (4)

early but were cruising at the end of the day with Dew unbeaten on 30 and Will Kennedy on 21. Pearcedale will resume on 1/60. Mt Eliza has the upper hand over old foe Mornington and looks highly likely to grab victory in this match. Mornington batted first but could only muster 144, thanks largely to Michael Heib, who made 41 batting at nine. The next best bat for the Dogs was Brad McDonald with 21. Lyle House did most of the damage with the ball for the Mounties, picking up 4/38 from 21 overs, while Nick Baron took 2/33 from 15.2 overs. The Doggies started sensationally with the ball, removing both openers Damien Kent (9) and Tim Clarke (1) before the score had reached 15. However, Josh Goudge (15) and Keith Biggs (25) were unbeaten at stumps with Mt Eliza in a strong position at 2/50. Peninsula Old Boys have set Baxter 212 for victory and the reigning champs will already go into day two with star Daniel Warwick back in the sheds. Baxter rolled POB for 211 and had to face the final two overs of the day. Bowling the second and last over of the day, POB’s Tom Shyler had War-

Christides hit 41 to get the visitors away to a strong start. The Parkers then lost quick wickets before Daniel Ballard (34) and Ricky Ramsdale (21) got things going again. Andrew Stapleton added 19 runs at the end which were handy. Flinders’ skipper Neil Barfuss was the best of the bowlers with 3/34 from 20 overs, while Will Tuck picked up 3/42 from 15. Pines and Red Hill are locked in an interesting battle after the conclusion of the opening day. Pines batted first and made 166. Brent Martin did the bulk of the damage with the ball for the Hillmen with 3/45 from 23 overs, while Simon Dart snared 2/18. The Hillmen faced the final four overs of the day and lost the dangerous Matt Merifield for a duck, courtesy of Pat Jackson. The Hillmen will resume this week at 1/13 after Andrew Mock (7) and Riley Shaw (6) saw their side through to stumps.

Ducs are all lined up against Eagles PENINSULA

By IT Gully MOOROODUC has placed itself in a wonderful position to knock over Somerville after the first day of round five in MPCA Peninsula cricket. The Ducs batted first in perfect conditions and progressed to 210 before being bowled out with nine overs left in the day. Ben Williams got the visitors away to a solid start with 42 at the top of the innings, while Rashimal Mendis provided great support at four with 57, including six boundaries. Keeper Nick Williams added 28 and there was some wag in the tail, which saw the Ducs get past 200. The Eagles used seven bowlers throughout the innings, Blake Terlaak the best of them with 3/33 from 17 overs. Jarryd Parker claimed 2/28 from six overs and skipper Jayde Herrick opened the attack with 2/31 from 11 overs. Somerville got away to a woeful start in the chase, losing its first three wick-

ets for just nine runs with openers Parker and Brad Jones removed for ducks and Sean Parker for four. Pathum De Mel picked up 2/4 and Kenny Cremen 1/9 for the Ducs. Bailey Henderson and Brenton Alp will resume for the Eagles on Saturday with the score on 3/22. Main Ridge has set Long Island a healthy score to chase down after batting first and making 9/260 at Ditterich Reserve. We all know that 260 is probably a sub-par score on the smaller Main Ridge deck, however, runs on the board give the Ridge the upper hand. Michael Holmes opened for the Ridge with 50, Shaun Foster was runout for 72, Nick Jewell made 25 and Ed Aarons scored 55 to get the Ridge past 250 and in a commanding position. Lachy Dobson was expensive for the Islanders with 3/87 from 21 overs, while Andrew Tweddle snared 3/58 from 18 overs. Delacombe Park was unable to capitalise on a great start against Flinders but still managed a good score of 237. Jon Guthrie opened with 64 and Nick

wick caught by Dylan O’Malley for a duck, leaving Baxter at 1/4 at stumps. Ealier in the day, Baxter would have been reasonably happy with the effort of the bowlers, although Jon Forrest did get away from the visitors with a fine knock of 79. Forrest saw POB go from 4/55 to 6/190 when he was finally out. Hugh Peacock was also very good for POB with 36 and Wade Pelzer continued his great form with 34. Ben Brittain was the pick of the Baxter bowlers with 3/17 while Chamika Sattambi snared 3/40 from 16 overs. Langwarrin has given itself every opportunity to win away against Crib Point. The Magpies batted first after winning the toss and made 162. Jake Prosser was once again in the wickets for the Kangas with 3/23 from 18 overs, including eight maidens, while Matt Campbell picked up 2/41 from 18.1 overs. Skipper Trav Campbell opened the bowling with 2/30 from 13 overs. Langwarrin faced the final three overs of the day and came away unscathed. They will resume at 0/12 with Tay Smith and the in-form Matt Prosser at the crease.

Tigers tough against the Hills DISTRICT

By IT Gully A MIDDLE order revival has seen Seaford Tigers go from being in trouble to holding the upper hand in its MPCA District clash against Heatherhill. The Tigers won the toss and batted first on their home deck but looked to be in all sorts of trouble early when it lost its opening three batsmen for just 11 runs. Skipper David James was out for four, Dave Roach for two and Anthony Joel for three, all courtesy of Hill’s

opening quick Jake Theobald, who was on fire early. The Tigers needed some intervention and it came in the form of Mackenzie Gardner and Ash Mills. Gardner hit 48 and Mills 56 to help the Tigers move on from 3/11 to 4/89. Jack Brooking then played one of his finest First XI innings with 50 and Jon Plakourakis added 36 to help the Tigers to a more than respectable 8/262 – a long way from 3/11. Theobald finished with 3/53 from 21 overs for the Hills, while Jon Powell and Luke Whitmore picked up two

wickets each. Tigers’ neighbour, Seaford, didn’t fare as well against Rosebud at Olympic Park. Seaford batted first and were restricted to just 138 in 75 overs. Jason Nagel was at his absolute vintage best, toiling for 28 overs for a sensational return of 5/62. Chip off the ol’ block Pat Nagel was equally as impressive, bowling 19 overs and finishing with 3/31, including eight overs. Billy Quigley bowled 10 overs and went for just nine runs, while Nathan

O’Sullivan snared 1/9 from seven overs. The Buds were simply superb with the ball. In reply, the home side is 0/3. Mt Martha has placed itself in a strong position against Rye, scoring 226 on the opening day of their clash. Rye faced the final five overs of the day and lost opener Coen Packer for a duck, leaving the Demons at 1/8 at stumps. Earlier, Reds’ opener Ryan Godwin top scored with 69 while a number of batsmen got starts before going out in their 20’s. Todd Harnett was the pick of the

Rye bowlers with 4/49 from 20.3 overs while Zac Stephenson picked up 2/55. The match between Hastings and Baden Powell will go down to the wire after a staggering 14 wickets fell on the opening day. Hastings batted first and once again failed dismally, rolled for just 119. Rob Hearn top scored with 23 and Isuru Dias hit 20. Sean Hewitt made 19. However, Baden Powell wasn’t much better with the bat, losing 4/23 in the final 11 overs of the day. Ryan McNamara and Dias picked up two wickets each.

The Saints go marching on SUB-DISTRICT

By IT Gully BALNARRING continued its superb form on Saturday on day one of MPCA Sub District cricket, scoring a massive 9/324 against Ballam Park. Seasoned campaigner Pete Mereszko was the star of the show for the Saints, opening with 74, including 13 boundaries, while there was plenty of support throughout the afternoon

from the rest of the line up. Darrel Brown scored a half century (50), skipper Mal Coutts added 41, Mark Walles 39 and Nathan Kleinig 35 as the Saints marched past 300. Ballam Park will need to produce something very special this week to win the match. Tootgarook has left Dromana with plenty of work to do after scoring 9/247 on Saturday at Pier St. Despite a superb 5/49 from 15 overs

from Jack Fowler, the Frogs have given themselves the upper hand. Dromana’s ‘lesser-likes’ need to make a contribution with the bat this week if they are to win. Tyabb was solid with the bat against Carrum in their match at Roy Dore Reserve, scoring 7/246. Jarrod White was exceptional for the Yabbies with 81, while Nick Taranto scored 42 and Matt Dimkos 45. Brodie Bennett was also solid with 37.

Jake D’Atri bowled 29 overs for the Lions and finished with 2/74 while Cory Foster and Deegan Vokes each picked up two wickets. Frankston YCW has started well in its run chase against Carrum Downs. The Cougars batted first and made 177, David Dervan again top scoring with 53 and Leon McConnell opening with 46. The Stonecats faced the final eight

overs of the day and will resume on day two at 0/25. Patrick Beckham top scored with 78 for Skye in its match against Boneo. Clint Donohue added 22 and Rob Gruar 21 to help Skye to 200. Leigh Janssen was superb for the Pandas, bowling a whopping 40 overs and finishing with 6/71, including 18 maidens.

Is Alana Murphy a Matilda in waiting? SOCCER

By Craig MacKenzie THERE is a remarkable talent in our midst and she only turned 12 in September. Alana Murphy was five when she played her first game for Langwarrin. She scored twice at Lawton Park that day and she’s been scoring goals for fun every since. She is the second youngest member of Victoria’s mini National Training Centre squad which competed in the 2017 women’s NPL under-15 competition. Her team beat up on most opponents throughout the season losing just one game and strolling to the title with five rounds to go. Murphy was initially attracted to soccer through the involvement of her older brother Owen and father Steve. She played in boys’ leagues for some of her time at Langy and was just eight years old in 2014 when playing in an under-11 girls’ league. “I had to make a decision to stay with the girls or go with the boys’ league,” said Murphy. She chose the boys’ under-10s league in 2015 under coach Gary Brisbane and has never looked back. “I think it was a better challenge for me because it was like more physical and faster and I improved a lot in that year.” At the end of the 2015 season Murphy played futsal, an indoor fivea-side competition, was the MVP in an under-12 boys’ league and represented Victoria at the national futsal championships. The introduction of a women’s NPL competition for 2016 saw Murphy surprise many onlookers when she bypassed local club Southern United and signed for Box Hill United. She had been selected for a Skill Acquisition Program under Stefano Sakalis the previous season and chose to join Sakalis’ under-13 squad at Wembley Park. She was just 10 years old for most of the season but handled the elite

competition with aplomb. Box Hill finished third and lost the under-13 grand final 1-0 to Bulleen with the decider coming three minutes from time. Murphy’s 24 goals clinched Box Hill’s top scorer award and best and fairest. She was runner-up in the race for league Golden Boot honours. Partway through that season she joined a train-on squad doing one session a fortnight with the NTC and at the end of the season was invited to train with the select group on a regular basis. In October last year the Murphy family received a phone call from the NTC saying that they were delighted with what they’d seen from Alana and she was offered a full-time spot. The girl with the long ponytail again tormented opposition defences, scoring 23 goals to be NTC’s top scorer this year and third top scorer in the league. Every astute judge that has seen Murphy in action rates her highly. Skill has been described as a love affair between a child and a ball and for Murphy it’s a love affair that could carry her to the sport’s dizzy heights. “I want to play for the Matildas.

That’s my goal,” she says in a matterof-fact manner. Stephanie Catley and Sam Kerr are her current Matilda favourites. “Steph Catley is really calm on the ball and her passing is accurate and if she loses the ball she transitions really quick,” said Murphy. “And I like scoring goals and Sam Kerr scores goals.” Kerr scored one and set up two goals in the Matildas’ stunning 6-1 thrashing of Brazil in California on Friday 4 August this year to clinch the Tournament of Nations. Murphy was transfixed in front of the TV in her bedroom watching her idols strut their stuff and ended up arriving at Langwarrin Park Primary School 15 minutes late that morning. “I got caught up watching it but like I don’t really care about looking at the time because when mum says go I just go.” Mum is Emily Murphy and following Alana’s dream has taken the family to national championships at Coff’s Harbour and national schoolgirls’ championships in Perth. Next month the Murphy family and Alana’s grandmother are off to Adelaide to watch her play for Victoria’s

under-12s in the national schoolgirls championships for the second time. While winning awards has become second nature to the young goalscoring prodigy she is acutely aware of areas she must work on to raise her game to greater heights. “I mainly use my right foot (scoring goals) but I can finish on my left,” said Murphy. “Sometimes I need to take my shots a bit quicker and not have too many touches and every now and then my first touch is not so good. “I often kick the ball at a wall really hard then control it to improve my touch.” It will be interesting to see how she develops next year when she becomes a student at Rowville Secondary College, joining its renowned soccer program under noted developmental coach Ian Greener. Although Murphy has made her mark in front of goal she is keen to play in a more withdrawn role as an attacking midfielder in order “to become involved a lot more.” Whichever onfield role evolves her 2015 coach has no doubts about her ability to reach the pinnacle of the sport. “If you took her long hair away you couldn’t tell the difference between her and the boys,” said Brisbane. “She’s a naturally gifted player and as for having a soccer brain she looks like she’s been playing for 20 years. “She reads the play really well and as a minimum I expect that she’ll play for Melbourne Victory or Melbourne City. “But I can see a future similar to Bailey Wright. She’ll leave Langwarrin and one day she’ll be wearing the green and gold.” Meanwhile Mornington has made a key signing with the capture of experienced central defender Jamie Cumming from Avondale. “It’s a fantastic get as Avondale had the best defensive record in the NPL this year and Jamie played just about every game,” said Mornington gaffer Adam Jamieson.

Cumming has had stints at Oakleigh Cannons, Bentleigh Greens and Heidelberg United and was on Langwarrin’s radar before heading to Dallas Brooks Park. Mornington also has secured the services of goalkeeping coach Peter Blasby who has resigned from his position with Bentleigh Greens. Local women’s club Southern United continues to fall foul of the pied piper effect as senior players are lured to NPL rival Bayside United which has secured the services of former Southern coaches Rob Giabardo and Bill Mihaloudis. Bayside dropped a bombshell recently when it announced it had secured the signature of 2017 Southern captain and women’s NPL Gold Medal winner Candela Ferreyra-Bas. Within days Bayside announced the capture of the Fonau sisters from Southern, goalkeeper Christine and defender Lisa while Elisabeth Robers, Savanah Anastopoulos, Rebecca Saber and Tayla Evans have also been linked with Bayside. Word is that Southern isn’t going to take this lying down and don’t be surprised if some Bayside players head in the opposite direction. Southern starts pre-season training tonight at Monterey Reserve at 7.30pm. The 2018 Steve Wallace Memorial Cup will be held on Saturday 3 February at Baxter Park. Just on $9000 for Frankston Hospital’s emergency department has been raised from the three previous tournaments. Once again competing clubs will be split into two groups and play each other in a round-robin format. So far Langwarrin, Mornington, Casey Comets, Frankston Pines, Skye United, Peninsula Strikers, Seaford United and Baxter have signed up and tournament organiser Tanya Wallace is hopeful that Rosebud Heart will again be represented. State League 2 club Old Scotch is keen to participate and is the likely 10th team in the annual event.
