Ex-CEO made an early exit Brodie Cowburn brodie@baysidenews.com.au FORMER Kingston Council CEO Julie Reid still had more than two years to run on her contract when she departed the organisation. Last week, Kingston Council made the sudden announcement that Ms Reid had left to take up a job as ex-

ecutive director of Local Government Victoria. Ms Reid was appointed to the CEO role in July 2019, and signed a four year contract. Now after just 18 months, she has left. Kingston Council has told The News that Ms Reid’s contract was not paid out when she departed. “Ms Reid’s contract was not paid out so there will be no additional cost

to ratepayers,” Kingston mayor Steve Staikos said. “Julie Reid was engaged on a fouryear contract with the City of Kingston in July 2019 and led the organisation during a challenging time. We are disappointed to farewell CEO Julie Reid so soon, but we understand that this new role is an amazing opportunity, and we look forward to working closely with her in her future

role.” Councillors discussed “CEO employment matters” numerous times in confidential meetings last year, but the outcome of those discussions has not been made public. The News has asked numerous times for clarification on these matters, but the question was once again not directly answered when posed last week. “Council is unable to comment on

items discussed in confidential business at our council meetings. Where possible, confidential items are made public at a later date. The CEO’s employment contract is published on our website for the public to view,” Cr Staikos said. The secrecy of those CEO discussions caused debate among councillors last year (“Serious issues aired behind closed doors”, The News, 3/6/20).

Age proves no barrier to enjoyment Touch-free crossings installed

Stephen Taylor steve@baysidenews.com.au A WOMAN who has been a part of Melbourne’s growth and prosperity for more than 100 years celebrated her 108th birthday last week. Marjorie Andrew, a resident at Benton’s Lodge, Mornington, was born at Moonee Ponds on 15 January 1913. Speaking to The News last week she said: “I grew up in Mordialloc, attended Mordialloc Primary School and finished my Leaving Certificate at night school. “My first job was as a clerk with the State Electricity Commission, first in Flinders Street and then Cheltenham.” After marrying Cyril “Bruce” Andrew at Mordialloc’s St Nicholas Church in May 1939, Ms Andrew faced the prospect of losing her husband when WWII broke out just four months later. “He was away for five long years and the world changed in the meantime,” she said. Looking back on those chilling times, Ms Andrew said part of the war effort for women who stayed at home was to work in the munitions factories, drive ambulances and staff cars, learn field nursing and first-aid, and to fill other positions traditionally held by men. “So, I learnt to drive, got my licence and drove management around, as well as defence force officers,” she said. “I joined the Red Cross and was a volunteer for 70 years. “In those days it was very much frowned upon for a woman to be behind the wheel of a car, so it is not surprising that when Bruce came home he was quite upset and forbade me to drive – until one night when he needed my driving skills, and the rest is history.” The couple had a daughter, Francine, who in turn had one son, and Ms Andrew says she is “blessed with two great grandchildren to date”. “I like to try new things and, even though I am getting on in years, if the body and mind allows, I will continue participating,” she said.

TOUCH-FREE pedestrian crossing signals are set to be installed across the Kingston local government area. The new signals will be installed in Aspendale at 67 Station St and 101 Station St/Laura Street, in Chelsea at Thames Prom/73 Mulkara Drive, Chelsea Heights at 217 Thames Promenade, Mordialloc at Governor Rd/26 Park Street, Cheltenham at 1 Bernard Street and 94 Bernard Street, and Clayton South at 24 Fairbank Road and 80 Fairbank Road. Kingston Mayor Steve Staikos said that council “decided to trial touchfree pedestrian signals to help reduce any local spread of COVID-19 or other infectious diseases. The trial has found that these touch-free signals were not only effective at managing traffic, they were also easy for community members to use.” The touchless push button has an additional sensor that helps to trigger the pedestrian crossing light without having to touch it. “Touch-free pedestrian signals are safer to use than conventional buttons, as they reduce the chances of infectious diseases being transmitted and spread within the Kingston community,” Cr Staikos said. “Kingston Council is committed and open to all suggestions that support community safety and social distancing, as we continue to guard against the spread of COVID-19.”

More works at Aspendale sports ground WORK on a new pavilion at Aspendale Gardens Sports Ground will begin soon. The $3.6 million projectly is jointly funded by the state government and Kingston Council. Kingston mayor Steve Staikos says that stage two works at the ground will “add a new state-of-the-art pavilion that includes female friendly facilities to meet the growing numbers of women and girls participating in sports.” “Like our fantastic new pavilion at Mordialloc’s Jack Grut Reserve, the Aspendale Gardens Sports Ground

Pavilion will feature a modular design and build, that allows it to be constructed off-site and then dropped into place. This means less construction noise for residents, and minimal disruption to the site for the clubs and the community while still ensuring a high-quality facility. “Many of our sporting pavilions were built half a century ago when sport was designed with only men in mind. We are transforming sporting facilities across the city to provide modern facilities with disability access and femalefriendly changerooms, so they can be

New president inaugurated THE Frankston Dolphins Football Club has a new president. Board member David Friend has been appointed to the role. He takes over from club champion Peter Geddes, who finished up in December. Mr Geddes oversaw the club during a period of renewed optimism for the Dolphins. He was part of the team that worked to reinstate the club to the VFL after it was booted out of the competition in 2016, and took over as president in 2017. In 2020 the club announced that it was able to pay off its debt by making the last payment of its Deed Of Company Arrangement. The club went into voluntary administration in August 2016 after sinking under about $1.5 million worth of debt. Mr Friend was announced as the club’s new president on 6 January.

In a statement on the club’s website, he said that “it’s an honour to be appointed the president of the Frankston Football Club. I am excited to be able to work with everyone at the club to help shape and drive its future.” “My goal is to lead, inspire, and support the club in every way I can, to be successful in all its endeavors, including delivering consistently competitive football teams. It’s also important to me to ensure the Frankston Football Club becomes financially strong, a progressive and innovative model club that embraces the community.” CEO Adrian Lloyd said “David’s experience over many years in working with AFL/VFL, NRL and A-League clubs will hold him in good stead in leading the Frankston Football Club.”

Alleged kidnapping A LANGWARRIN man has been charged for allegedly holding an animal shelter staff member captive. At around 10.45pm on 11 January, a staff member from The Lost Dogs’ Home in Cranbourne was allegedly threatened by a man with a gun after parking her car at the shelter. Police allege that the man then marched the woman into the shelter, and tied her up. The man then left the site. A statement from Victoria Police read that “the woman, who wasn’t physically injured, was able to free herself and seek help.” On 12 January, Casey Crime Investigation Unit detectives charged a 44-year-old man with kidnapping, false imprisonment, aggravated burglary, armed robbery, and firearm offences. Police also executed search warrants in Langwarrin and Carrum Downs, where they seized three firearms. The alleged offender was remanded to appear at the Melbourne Magistrates’ Court. The ABC reported that the Melbourne Magistrates’ Court had heard that the man had gone to the shelter to get back his cat, which was being held there. He was denied bail.

Firearms seized by new police unit POLICE seized 36 real and imitation firearms from a Frankston home in November last year. A Frankston man has since been charged with possess a traffickable quantity of unregistered firearms, acquisition of a traffickable quantity of firearms, prohibited person possess handgun, acquire general category handgun, prohibited person possess imitation handgun, possess prohibited weapon, possess drug of dependence, and attempt to possess a handgun. He will face Melbourne Magistrates’ Court in

July. The weapons were seized by members of the newly established Illicit Firearms Unit. Among the seized firearms were gel ball blasters, which police say there is “currently no lawful genuine reason for use in Victoria”. Victoria Police Acting Deputy Commissioner Bob Hill said “last year in Victoria we seized more firearms than we did in 2019, which shows that a global pandemic had no impact on the prevalence of firearms in this state.” “I am confident the IFU will enhance Victoria Police’s capability not only to respond to illicit firearms related crime, but to proactively target those responsible.”

Man assaulted A MAN and woman are wanted by police in relation to a vicious assault in the Frankston CBD last month. The victim, a 52-year-old Seaford man, was approached by a man and woman while walking home through the CBD. The man demanded that the victim hand over his clothes and backpack. After refusing, the victim was attacked. He was punched by the man, and kicked on the ground. The victim managed to escape without losing any of his belongings. He suffered bruising to his face and injuries to his jaw. The man and woman left and were last seen on Kitson Street. CCTV images (below) of two people police wish to speak to about the assault have been released. Information to Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000 or file a confidential report at www.crimestoppersvic.com.au.

Going overboard for water safety BOATERS and paddlers are being urged to practice getting back on their craft so they will be better prepared to save themselves this summer. Maritime Safety Victoria acting director Gareth Johnson says he expects a surge of water activity as boaters and paddlers make the most of free time from the restrictions imposed by COVID-19. “With increased activity comes the possibility of increased incidents, injuries and fatalities,” he said. “In 2018-19 there were 717 incidents in Port Phillip (excluding Corio) and 219 in Western Port and we don’t want to see those numbers increase. “Our critical safety message for boaters and paddlers – practice getting back on. “If you’re planning to go out on a boat or a kayak in the next few months, don’t wait until you’re treading water to find out you can’t get back on. Just because you could once doesn’t mean you can now.” Mr Johnson says that with incidents on the rise in recent years, TSV’s five messages for summer remain critical. “Boaters and paddlers usually remember to check the weather and wear a lifejacket, but many injuries – and, sadly, fatalities – happen when they go out alone, can’t get back on and are unable to raise the alarm.” Research shows 37 per cent of paddlers and 31 per cent of coastal boaters, on their last outing, did not carry equipment to help them get back on board. “That’s why we recommend boaters and kayakers practice getting back on board – soon,” Mr Johnson said. “If you own a boat you should do this once a year and if you’re a kayaker or canoer do it more frequently.” Paddlers should learn to use a paddle float and stirrup and consider taking professional instruction before kayaking trips. Boaters are advised to have a kill switch that ensures the engine cuts out if they fall overboard. They should buy a ladder that extends into the water. The Prepare to Survive campaign focuses on preparation, so that if something does go wrong, boaters have the best chance of survival. This includes knowing the weather; practicing getting back on; carrying a distress beacon; having a buddy plan and wearing a lifejacket. Details: Visit msv.vic.gov.au/prepare

POINT of VIEW THE situation surrounding COVID-19 remains fluid, with easing of some restrictions followed on a seemingly daily basis by reports of more outbreaks. This week’s major news will no doubt follow the arrival of tennis players and their support teams being forced to quarantine in Melbourne before the Australian Open. Meanwhile, the Point of View team players were out and about, recording scenes in their daily lives. Glenys Slade saw the pleasure that musicians brought to Mornington’s Wednesday market in Main Street (1); Sue Brabender was intrigued by a “pot-bellied sea horse” (2); Adam Richmond found a crab on a rock at Flinders (3); while Steve Howard wonders if Mykonos at Mills Beach, Mornington, is named from nostalgia, similarity, or regret that a trip to the Agean might not be possible for some time to come (4).

100 YEARS AGO THIS WEEK...

Assault and damages – Dairymen fight over customers Compiled by Cameron McCullough AT the Frankston Police Court on Monday last—before Messrs C. G. V. Williams (chairman), C. Grant, and W. P. Mason, J’s.P—a local resident named Edward Barber, dairyman, was charged by Frank Pickup, an employee of W. J. Oates, dairyman, with assault. He also made a claim for damages in connection with the assault. It was decided to hear both cases together. Mr L. R. N. Utber (Hunt & Utber) appeared for complainant, and defendant was represented by Pavey, Wilson & Cohen’s representative. Dr Charles Maxwell said he examined Pickup on December 26th and found him suffering from abrasions on the nose, which was much swollen, whilst he had a black eye. He dressed the injuries, which could have been caused by a violent blow from the fist. Cross-examined, Dr Maxwell said that such a blow must have been struck from the front, and not from behind. Frank Pickup deposed that on the 26th at 5 o’clock he was on his rounds in High Street, Frankston. He was preparing to leave milk at Mrs Bedgood’s residence, as he had done on the three previous days, when Barber came along. Witness said “It’s no use you going in there; I’m serving this customer”. Barber said, “I’ll stop you at that,” and called witness a dirty, rotten b ———. Witness turned to lock the wheel of his cart, and, as he did so, Barber struck him a violent blow with his fist, and knocked him down.

The blow left witness dazed and very shaky, and it was 10 days before the effects wore off. Barber’s father, who was sitting in defendant’s cart, said “I would give you more than that, you crawler,” and added that Strong (a former employee of Oates) would get the same. Witness weighed between 8 and 9 stone, whilst Barber was a big man. Crosss-examined, Pickup said the marks inflicted by the blow had now disappeared; he finished his round after the blow; he had not lost any time on his job. Barber had told him once before not to call on that customer, but he treated it as the usual bluff. The customer in question at that time did not leave the cash in the milk jug as she now did. Witness had been serving that house all the time and had never been told to stop by the customer. Witness was a returned soldier, and had served in the 5th Batl. W. J. Oates said that as a result of the assault Pickup was very much shaken and witness had to accompany him on the cart for the rest of the day, whilst his nose was skinned and his eyes blackened, the marks remaining for 9 or 10 days. Cross examined, Oates said Pickup was merely an employee, and had no other interest in the business. Witness had no objection to saying how he purchased the business – Mr Utber objected to this line of cross examination, and the Bench upheld the objection. Oates was proceeding to say that prior to the assault he had occasion to

ring Barber on the telephone about a customer, but counsel for defendant objected. For the defence, Edward Barber said he regarded Mrs Bedgood as his customer. She had told him to call with the milk, but when he got there he found that Pickup had been round at about two or three in the morning, and on one occasion, Mrs Bedgood put her head out of the window, and told witness that the other milkman had called. She said she thought it a mean action. On the 26th he explained the position to Pickup, and Pickup called him a liar. Witness had a good deal of trouble with Oates’ men calling on his cash customers and taking the money out of the jugs. He caught Pickup doing it. Pickup gave him provocation, but he did not strike him from behind. Cross examined, Mrs Bedgood was not a cash customer on the 26th, and would not deny that Pickup delivered milk to Mrs Bedgood prior to the 26th December, and was still doing so. The Chairman said that a cowardly assault had been committed, and fined Barber £2, in default 14 days. On the claim for damages, £3 1s 6d was awarded Pickup. The amounts were paid. *** ON Saturday night, the (Opening Night of the Frankston Pictures Co Ltd will take place at the Mechanics Institute, Frankston. The electric plant, which cost £300, has been installed, and the directorate

guarantees the pictures to be absolutely up to the standard of the Melbourne theatres. Two features will figure on the programme – Mary Miles Minter in the tensely dramatic picture, “Rosemary Climbs the Heights,” and Henry H. Warner in Robertson Cole’s story, “A Fugitive from Matrimony,” a drama with a comedy interest mingled with it. These two pictures recently attracted large audiences at the Majestic Theatre, and they should be well-received here. *** WE regret to report that Mr Milner Macmaster, of the Bay Estate Agency, is suffering from eye trouble and has not been able to attend at his office for some time. During the week Mr Macmaster journeyed citywards to consult a specialist, and he is now under the advisory care of Sir James Barrett, the eminent eye specialist. *** WHILST riding in the Maiden Hurdles at the Frankston Show yesterday, Major Conder met with a nasty accident. When starting the second round of hurdles, his mount struck heavily, and the Major was thrown some distance. The assistance of Dr Maxwell was sought, and after treatment, he revived a little. This morning, he was conveyed home to the Langwarrin Camp. Miss Collins’ horse also slipped when racing to a hurdle, but, luckily, the turf was soft, and she escaped unhurt. ***

WE have been requested to warn drivers of vehicles, cyclists and others that the by-law requiring all conveyances to show a light after sunset, will be rigidly enforced after this date in the Hastings and Somerville district. Constable Stansbury of Hastings, is the summonsing officer. *** LIKE Queen Anne and Mahomet the Frankston Brass Band is dead. It passed peacefully away last week after a spasmodic struggle to keep itself alive. No more need be said —the Band is dead ! But by request, no flowers! *** MISS Doris Hegarty, of the Horse Shoe Hotel, Carlton, has been spending a short holiday at Hastings, but has now returned home. *** THE STANDARD, with this issue has been permanently enlarged – each column having two inches added, which means 16 inches extra per page or 52 inches over the whole sheet. *** FOUND on beach, last Friday, Pair Gold Rimmed Spectacles. Owner can have same by paying cost of advertisement — Standard Office. *** LOST from Tyabb, 1 brown or black gelding about 15 a.u. shod. Branded < L on near shoulder. Reward on information to H. L.

WHAT’S NEW...

Two legends of Australian music announce joint tour AUSTRALIAN music icons Brian Cadd and Russell Morris have a long friendship spanning more than four decades. Throughout the years they have occasionally joined forces and toured together, something that has always seen rave reviews and sold-out shows. Audiences have not only delighted in their music and their shared memories, but also their entertaining on-stage banter. Now, they are back to perform a limited amount of shows this March and they are rolling out their hits and more! Together Brian and Russell deliver a dynamic show of not only their own songs, but also a selection of classics that are guaranteed to delight. They may arrive on stage as mates who have been in the industry for decades, but they turn themselves and their audiences, back to 20-year-old rockers. Their show is a relentless sequence of hits, laughter and mockery! Never scared to take a jab at each other, on or off the stage, they know each other affectionately as ‘the turtle without a shell’ and ‘the Cheshire cat’. You figure out which one is which! Brian Cadd rocks songs like Little Ray of Sunshine, Ginger Man and Don’t You Know Its Magic. He is revered as one of Australia’s influential musicians, and for good reason. In the 60s and 70s he was one of the most prominent musicians on the local scene and went on to carve himself a formidable reputation not only at home but also overseas. He has a stack of songwriting credits to his name, and his songs have been covered by The Pointer Sisters, Joe Cocker, Gene Pitney and Bonnie Tyler to name a few. Russell Morris will perform his beloved hits Real Thing, Sweet Sweet Love and Wings of an Eagle. Acclaimed for both his psychedelic masterpiece and subsequent hits in the 1970s, and his recent blues-inspired albums, Russell is the consummate songwriter. His blues albums earned him a whole new fan base and introduced a new generation to his early music. An ARIA Hall of Fame inductee, Russell has worked with a range of legendary artists throughout his career including Jim Keyes and Darryl Cotton. For Brian Cadd, returning to the stage with his long-time friend is something to look forward to. “It is rare and enjoyable to spend 90-minutes on the stage every night with someone who has travelled the same musical road and number of years as I have,” he says. “It makes the musical highlights, the songs, and the silliness all that much more fun. Come and see what we mean!” Don’t miss these two legends of Australian music as they tour Australia this March. Tickets are on sale now.

Consider the wellbeing of campers too Sally Baillieu seems to have a rather one-eyed view of the foreshore camping arrangements and their potential impact on the local populace. (“Camping rules unchanged “ The News 12/1/2021). Her suggestion that it “puts us all at risk” is as exaggerated as the statement that “Victoria is now riddled with exposure sites”. In fact, there are but a handful of exposure sites on the Department of Health and Human Services website as of 14 January. Only two, Emerald and Mount Martha, are outside of metro Melbourne. I believe the most disappointing assertion is that “the social costs have not been accounted for”. The greatest social costs to the community have arisen from closing things down, not from opening up. What about the many families who rely on that short window of the summer holidays to generate the bulk of their revenue from the multitude of small businesses along the camping strip? Is their social wellbeing not important? Is the social wellbeing of the campers not important? Many would have visited year after year for a decade or more. Depriving them of their holiday with friends they may see just for that time is plain selfish. Maybe Ms Baillieu should ensure her personal wellbeing by going into self-quarantine at home, leaving the rest of the community to enjoy the modest freedoms we are currently allowed. Jack Wheeler, Mornington

Time ‘they’ went Have they gone yet? Who, you may well ask? Unless like me you’re a resident of Rye and presently tripping over adult hordes, darling little ankle biters, almost all eating ice cream, many with a puppy on a leash? The hot weather improves the need to shop to some degree; they all retire to the beach and love jet skis. Am I cranky, bitter? No. There’s a type of masochistic pleasure in knowing come the day after Australia Day (we call it Scott Morrison Day) they disappear. They’re not all bad. I saw one group putting their pizza rubbish in the bin, albeit an overflowing bin. I should have taped it, but the females were already giving me dirty looks for (seemingly) looking at them. The colder days earlier helped, in that my Woolworths visits at 7am were free of bikini wearing shoppers. I’m thinking of getting a badge made saying “I survived the invasion” centre, and below it, Gloria Gaynor. Cliff Ellen, Rye

Use ‘best’ vaccine Not being a Rhodes scholar, but someone with two working ears and only one eye (because of the year long wait for public surgery), but still alive, the World Health Organisation has clearly and indefatigably stated that the Pfizer Biotech coronavirus vaccine is 95 per cent effectve. Yet the one most Australians are going to be foisted off with the AstraZeneca UK sourced el cheapo which has only 60 per cent success rate. Why in goodness’s name is Australia continuing with this repeat prescription when any man, woman and his dog, can see 95 per cent is considerably better than 60 per cent? Being non-political, I am not used to repeating myself by emphasising that we should be entitled to the best not the “oh it’s convenient”; “oh yes, we can manufacture it here”; “oh yes, it’s stored in domestic refrigerators”; and “oh yes, it’s cheap. I would like to be vaccinated asap, simply because I care, feed, drive and respond to elderly isolated pensioners at risk and have evaded the nursing homes. I am prepared to join a queue and, if necessary, pay out of my age pension for an upgrade to a properly refrigerated Pfizer Biotech vaccine administered under clinical conditions. I didn’t bother to approach Health Minister and Flinders MP Greg Hunt’s electoral office as the usual response is “yes we have received your communication and will pass it on”, and nothing is done. Ian Morrison, Mount Eliza

Chelsea Mordialloc Mentone News

Govt has solution [Flinders MP] Greg Hunt trotted out the usual seven plus year old federal government mantra about refugees knowing that these policies are extremely inhumane and are now not relevant to the current situation (“Grandmothers march in time for refugees” The News 23/12/20). Refugees and asylum seekers have been locked up without rights for years in offshore detention centres and moved about in Australia into hotels in Melbourne and elsewhere. The government is fully aware of the terrible ill effects of its policies on these people’s physical and mental health. Mr Hunt’s government can change this situation immediately. That is what we, and many other concerned Australians, are rallying about. Ann Renkin, Shoreham

Unchanged views I read the first [2021] edition of the The News expecting to see groveling apologies from Liberal-hating correspondents. But no, both letters were again scathing of the Liberal Party (“Help refugees” and “Reluctant feds” 13/1/21). I would have thought that they would have vented their anger at [Premier] Dan Andrews for taking a well-deserved holiday with his family after a horrendous 2020. For the first three months of 2020 they were vitriolic in their diatribe towards our prime minister [Scott Morrison], who dared take a family holiday to Hawaii while the bushfires raged. At least our PM had competent understudies to make decisions and was only a phone call away. [The premier] was only a phone call away, but who would trust his understudies? People who live in glass houses, should not throw stones. Has Marg [D’Arcy] volunteered, to adopt one of these illegal refugees? John Cain should ring the CEO of the security company who was awarded the multimillion dollar [hotel security] contract, and ask who rang or messaged him to say he had won the contract. Graham Griffiths, Rye

Prayer not required I disagree with the assertion that the removal of the “council prayer” from Mornington Peninsula Shire meetings is somehow unlawful under the Local Government Act. (“Follow due process and reinstate council prayer” Letters 13/1/21). Absolutely nowhere in our Victorian Local Government Act, (nor any that came before it since we became a state in 1851) is there any mention of a god, a religion, or a requirement for praying before a council meeting. Councillors, optionally, give an oath or a declaration that they will abide by the Act. When state MPs passed the Local Government Act 2020 Bill, it was then presented to the governor for royal assent. In our enlightened age, imaginary gods have nothing to do with any of the processes. Ron Musgrove, Dromana

Breaking silence I have applied personal harsh discipline up to this point to stay out of this one but, unfortunately, have never been able to avoid or cause controversy, so here goes (“Follow due process and reinstate council prayer” Letters 13/1/21). Hate to tell y’all, but Australia is not a Christian state, it is a secular state. See Section 116 of Constitution. Our pseudo claims of multiculturalism dictates that “Christian” prayers not be said exclusively in public gatherings or in public schools, and I would put forward that if prayers are in order then they should be rotated between the faiths (as should the chaplains program) so let’s have some Muslim prayers also. Satanism is defined as an Australian religion, so how about a few prayers according to them? Want to see what a Christian state (Caliphate) is like? Do some research on Poland and the laws being passed. And then the government. If you look at the actions of our government how could anyone

LIGHT can be the most important feature of a photograph. An everyday scene can be transformed into something special. Photographer for The News, Gary Sissons, was up early to catch the sun at Mornington pier. Its reflections off the fishing boat’s hull into the water, contrasted with the background clouds, perfectly balancing the picture.

claim that Australia is even close to applying Christian values? Many of its policies and actions are as far removed from any Bible teachings I have ever experienced, and I can speak from legitimacy as I was an unmolested altar boy, confirmed in the church, attended Catholic schools, and participated in the Saturday morning catechism classes with extinction (sic). Where is [US separation of church and state activist] Madalyn Murray O’Hair when we need her? Joe Lenzo, Safety Beach Editor: Madalyn Murray O’Hair died 29/9/1995.

Fitness before profit I live at Merricks North on the Mornington Peninsula and I used to swim regularly at Pelican Park Aquatic Centre in Hastings, the closest public indoor pool to me. Belgravia Leisure, the private operator that runs the pool, has closed the pool to the public on weekdays between 4pm-6pm and on Saturdays between 9am-12pm. They run for-profit swim classes during those times. I don’t understand how a publicly owned pool can be closed to the public at times when the public is most likely to want to be using it. Belgravia is making a profit at the expense of the health and fitness of the general community. I don’t object to a private operator running the pool, but the public should have guaranteed access. Michele Sabto, Merricks North

Noisy nights Eric Collier is clearly a member of Peninsula Aero club (“Overboard on airfield” Letters 13/1/21). Given his support for [Cr Paul] Mercu-

rio and the airfield he should disclose this when he writes. His critique of the survey is highly questionable and wrong, all you have to do is drive round and see the signs in peoples’ houses south of Bungower Road not in favour of the airfield and the noise that is generated by activities there. His attack on me borders on delusional. Why would I want to support the airport when it clearly does not follow what is claimed on its webpage, not flying after 2000 hours? When I and others are subject to flights up to 2200 hours and the subsequent noise, it is my right to complain about excessive noise. If Mornington Peninsula Shire Council is looking at rezoning this area to industrial, then it will offer more employment to the area and bringing more people into this zone. Dr Ian Munro, Somerville

Trolley solution I have been most alarmed at the number of supermarket and other trolleys left around Mornington. Surely, they are worth a lot to the owners but, because of the pandemic, shops have allowed them to go out for free and, with the closing of Main Street, shoppers quite often have to return to their car up to 500 metres away, and so leave the trolleys there. Could I suggest a thrill for the local kids? Offer $2 to $5 on a particular day if any are returned, and they all will be. The result will make everyone happy. This is cheap for the owners, and a bonus for the kids, and clearance of the problem for all of us. Just do one day a month, or whatever, and just for kids under 18. Wendy Doyle, Mornington

Tigers fall short, Frankston YCW grasp a thriller, huge knock secures Ballam Park win By Brodie Cowburn

Bailing out: Carrum's total of 153 was not enough to hold off Frankston YCW. Picture: Craig Barrett

PENINSULA

SEAFORD Tigers have fallen agonisingly short of victory against Pines. Damien Lawrence was brilliant for Pines. He scored 99 not out as an opening batsman, bringing his team to a total of 4/178. The knock was his best of the season. Seaford Tigers’ run chase got off to a good start, with Brayden Roscoe and Tim Hayes combining for a 75 run opening stand. From there the side fell to 4/88, putting the result in doubt. The Tigers middle order wasn’t able to capitalise on a strong start. They brought the game down to the final over, but couldn’t get over the line. The Tigers finished all out for 174 from 40 overs, five runs from victory. Lawrence also impressed with the ball, taking three late wickets to help his side wrap up the win. At Bruce Park, a brilliant ton from Tom Boxell got Long Island a win over Heatherhill. Batting first, Heatherhill set their opponents a tough target to chase down. First drop batsman Kristian Miller was their best, scoring 95 before being run out. Long Island would have to chase down 180 to win. Off the back of Boxell’s knock, Long Island were able to reach their target with three overs left to play. They still had four wickets to spare. Flinders notched up a win in their clash against Moorooduc on Saturday. They chased down a target of 181 thanks to a 124 run stand between Matthew Gale and Andrew Power. Main Ridge have defeated Somerville by 36 runs. Somerville’s run chase was restricted by some impressive bowling. James Abbott took 3/7 off his four overs.

chase, and ended up hitting the winning runs in the final over. A 99 run opening stand by Matt Foy and Luke Hewitt wasn’t enough for Hastings to win against Pearcedale. Pearcedale were set 148 to win, and got started on the right foot. An 83 opening run stand of their own set them up for victory. Opener Bradley Trotter top scored with 53. With eight overs left in the day, Pearcedale wrapped up the wellearned win. Delacombe Park didn’t have much trouble with Crib Point at home, winning by nine wickets. Chasing 138 to win, Delacombe Park made quick work of the game. Tim Clarke and Matthew Whelan scored 62 and 67 respectively. Rosebud bowled Dromana out for

just 65 at Olympic Park to secure a 99 run win.

SUB DISTRICT

A MAMMOTH 179 run knock from Pradeep De Silva got Ballam Park an impressive win on Saturday. Up against Mt Martha, Ballam Park chose to bat first. De Silva opened and was electric, smashing 13 fours and 10 sixes during his innings. His heroics helped his side to a huge total, finishing at 5/263. Mt Martha were bowled out for 187, well and truly short of what they needed to win. David Cross took four wickets for the winning outfit. An unbeaten century partnership between Scott Manders and Joshua Trevitt proved the difference in Seaford and Skye’s match.

Skye batted first and scored 187 runs. Seaford’s run chase got off to a decent start, but at 4/90 Skye were still in with a chance. Manders and Trevitt came in and put the game beyond doubt, handing Seaford a six wicket win with four overs left to play. Tootgarook nearly defended a low total to win against Boneo, but couldn’t get the job done. Tootgarook were bowled out for just 104, with only opener Travis French contributing a decent total to the scoreboard. Boneo’s run chase was far from smooth sailing, losing 3/11 in one spell and 4/9 in another. They were eventually able to hit the winning runs with eight balls left to spare. They had three wickets left when they reached their target.

RED HILL won in a final-ball thriller against Baxter on Saturday. Baxter set their opponents a tall mountain to climb. Red Hill were going to have to hit 208 runs to claim victory. Red Hill’s run chase got off to a nightmare start, but cometh the hour, cometh the man. Coming in at 3/12, Adam Slack completely changed the course of the match. He got his side back on track, and as they entered the final over they were still in with a chance to win. Slack hit the winning runs with the final delivery of the game, giving his side a famous win. He ended up on 98 not out. Baxter batsmen Yohan Maddege and Chris Brittain also played well, with both scoring half centuries. Langwarrin scored a good win away on the weekend, taking the points against Baden Powell. Langwarrin set their opponents 186 to win, and bowled well. A late collapse cost Baden Powell badly, as they fell from 5/121 to all out for 151. A total of 159 wasn’t enough for Mt Eliza in their clash against Mornington. Although they looked shaky at times, Mornington were able to wrap up a win with three overs and three wickets left to spare. Sorrento won by five wickets on Saturday after bowling Old Peninsula out for 94. The result was a disappointing one for Peninsula OB, who have made an impressive start to the season.

Pines claim Berwick City scalp SOCCER

By Craig MacKenzie FRANKSTON Pines’ 2021 campaign got back on track with a 4-3 win over Berwick City in their friendly at Monterey Reserve last weekend. The local side had suffered a hiccup back in December when losing to Doveton’s NPL under-21s 3-1. There’s been a fair bit of hype around this Pines’ side and its State 3 title credentials not least because of its four young Fijian internationals so it needed a much more positive display to justify the noise. And it got one here as Pines were in control for long periods against a disappointing State 2 opponent. Pines ran up a 4-1 lead before conceding two sloppy goals in the second half. Jordan Avraham as an attacking midfielder with Scott Webster in a defensive midfield role worked well and the three Fijian outfield players – central defender Penni Tuigulagula, central midfielder Savenaca Baledrokadroka and striker Tito Vodawaqa – all had a major impact. Pines hit the front early after Avraham’s corner from the left was not properly cleared allowing him a second chance and his far post cross was volleyed home on the bounce from 10 metres by Baledrokadroka. CJ Hodgson had blown a couple of scoring opportunities before conjuring up an outstanding curling strike into the far corner in the 22nd minute for Pines’ second. Webster handled inside the area a few minutes later and former Pines captain Paul McEvoy had no trouble converting from the spot to make it 2-1. Shortly before the interval Hodgson got his second. Not for the first time Vodawaqa taunted and teased the Berwick defence down the left and his cutback was met superbly by Hodgson whose low leftfoot strike made it 3-1. A minute into the second half Avraham gave Pines a three-goal cushion with a curling free-kick from the left that eluded a pack of players in the box and the Berwick keeper, anchored to his line, could only watch it bounce inside the far post. John Prescott made it 4-2 with a close-range header in the 60th minute and five minutes later a McEvoy freekick curled towards the back post was headed towards the opposite post by Berwick’s Jarod Blackbourn. Fijian goalkeeper Aeseli Batikasa made a poor attempt at grabbing the ball which eluded his grasp and dropped in

behind him to complete the scoreline. Pines won the reserves match 3-1. The club had made a pre-match announcement that Paulo Pinheiro had stepped up from his role as reserves coach to become senior assistant to Kevin “Squizzy” Taylor replacing Darren Roberts who resigned recently. Hayden Taylor was then appointed playing reserves coach with Jamie O’Halloran as his assistant. That duo kicked off their coaching careers in style with a 3-1 win on the back of two Hayden Taylor goals and a Lachie McMinimee penalty. Taylor went to great lengths after the match to ask that a vivid description of one of his goals be published even offering up a video of the moment. “It was an absolute wonder goal,” he boasted. “I chipped the keeper from near the halfway line. “A bit like that Kemar Roofe goal for

Rangers in the Europa League.” In State 2 news Peninsula Strikers defeated State 4 South outfit Noble Park United 4-1 at Centenary Park last weekend. Strikers’ senior coach Paul Williams used a matchday squad of 18 on a rotational basis. Ben Doree and New Zealand striker Riley Anderton both grabbed doubles. Doree opened his account from the spot after 25 minutes but a few minutes later the visitors returned the favour when referee Frank Osei-Ntim awarded them a penalty. Doree restored Strikers’ lead after combining with Jai Power. The former East Bentleigh striker’s first touch wasn’t great but he got to the ball before the advancing keeper and knocked it past him from close range. It was 2-1 at half-time and early in the second half Anderton opened his account after a good build-up down the

left sent him clear and he slotted it in with ease. His second came with a deft touch at the near post and that was that. Overall it was a worthwhile hitout for both sides with the promise of better to come. As for the visitors their biggest news was that the trial separation is over and the dynamic coaching duo of Billy Armour and Billy Rae has been reunited for the umpteenth time. There had been speculation that Rae would be considered for the vacant Somerville senior coaching post but the local club did not contact him. Strikers too had made a significant coaching appointment and late last week they announced that Jake Priest had taken over as reserve coach for 2021. This post was vacated by Donn Delaney who became senior assistant to Williams after Scott Morrison’s departure.

Priest has significant experience having coached Torquay United community teams in the UK and holds an FA Level 2 licence. Since coming to Australia he has coached Casey Comets under-20s, Old Scotch reserves and South Yarra reserves. In NPL2 news Langwarrin’s planned away friendly against Eastern Lions has been switched to Lawton Park. The match will now take place on Sunday 31 January and will feature an under-19s clash at noon followed by the seniors at 2pm. An under-21s match will kick-off at 4pm. This week’s friendlies: THURSDAY: Aspendale Stingrays v Noble Park Utd (Serbian Sports Centre, 7pm). SATURDAY: Peninsula Strikers v Aspendale Stingrays (Centenary Park, 1pm & 3pm), Skye Utd v South Yarra (John Paul College, 2pm & 4pm).
