Drug haul

Police say they found “several thousand cannabis plants” after a series of raids across the south-east of Melbourne. Police executed a search warrant and seized items from Carrum Downs (pictured). See story page 6. Pictures: Supplied

Tree planting called off Brodie Cowburn brodie@baysidenews.com.au PLANS to plant trees along a section of Beach Road have been called off. Kingston councillors voted on 22 July “to not allow the planting of nature strip trees (...) proposed along the residential side of Beach Road between Charman Road Mentone and Owen Street Mordialloc” due to a “re-

fusal by VicRoads”. “The beach/foreshore side planting should proceed as planned to provide for the timely completion of the next stage of the foreshore path,” the motion read. The move to plant trees along that section of the road was decided in December 2018. Tree planting plans on Beach Road has proved a divisive issue at council this year. Early this year it was

agreed that “council refer the [Bay Trail] matter to the Independent Broad Based Anti Corruption Commission and ask them to undertake an investigation into whether any improper or illegal actions by any participants may have influenced the outcome in this matter.” Two absent councillors did not take part in the vote to call for an IBAC investigation. Two weeks later council called a special meeting and rescinded

that earlier vote in front of an angered public gallery. Both meetings were hampered by heckling and shouting from members of the public. On 20 February council voted to “confirm that the Beach Road Boulevard plantings be for the entirety of Kingston’s section of Beach Rd, from Bayside’s border through to Mordialloc”. Kingston mayor Cr Georgina Oxley told The News at the time that reaffirming that all of Beach Road

in the municipality would have trees planted was necessary to “clarify a section of the motion that our officers were unsure of. The purpose was to clarify that what was carried by council back in December in regards to tree plantings of Beach Road, which is that they would be for the entire Beach Road in the City of Kingston. This needed to be clarified” (“Council reaffirms Beach Road tree plantings”, The News, 20/2/19).

Decking plans: Kingston mayor Georgina Oxley, Mordialloc MP Tim Richardson, and Nina Taylor MP met with the LXRP to show off plans for improved decking at Mentone and Cheltenham stations. Pictures: Supplied

Decking planned for stations KINGSTON Council will put $2.9 million into the creation of bigger decks at Cheltenham and Mentone Stations as part of their redevelopment. Kingston mayor Georgina Oxley said council was “proud to partner with the LXRP to deliver a greater community outcome beyond removing the level crossings.” “Council has been happy to work in partnership with the Victorian government to leverage their $3 billion investment along the Frankston line and have been proactively advocating for the best outcomes for the Kingston community,” she said. “Our $2.9 million contribution will have intergenerational benefits, by increasing the open space in Mentone, bringing Cheltenham Park into the activity centre, and increasing parking for shoppers in Cheltenham.” As part of a motion passed at council’s 23 April

meeting, council voted to seek “further discussion” about expanded decking areas at both the stations. The successful motion stated that council would “authorise officers to negotiate for the additional decking at Cheltenham and Mentone up to a maximum financial contribution by council.” The amount of that financial contribution was kept confidential at the time. Cr Oxley said council had been asked to put in $6 million, but agreed with the LXRP to put in $2.9 million of ratepayer money on the condition that council will maintain the open space areas. “The level crossing removal projects are a once in a generation opportunity to shape these key retail precincts, and will ensure these new areas are more attractive, pedestrian friendly and have improved links to the surrounding retail areas,” she said.

Trains running late Brodie Cowburn brodie@baysidenews.com.au

New CEO chosen JULIE Reid has been announced as the new CEO of Kingston Council. Ms Reid replaces outgoing CEO John Nevins, who has been with Kingston Council since 2005. Her tenure will begin on 26 August. “I look forward to working in such a diverse council that has a positive reputation for quality service and delivery. I have a strong commitment to engaging with councillors, staff and the community to build on the great work of the council,” Ms Reid said. Kingston mayor Georgina Oxley said “I am proud to welcome Julie Reid as the new CEO of the City of Kingston and look forward to working together for great outcomes for our community.” “With 30 years’ experience in the public sector in Australia and the UK, Ms Reid has expertise in major infrastructure projects, strategic planning, urban design, economic development, tourism, arts, events and more,” she said. Cr Oxley also thanked Mr Nevins for his work at council. “John has left an incredible legacy at Kingston with our council in a strong financial position, high quality community facilities, an enormous range of services offered and a strong local economy,” she said. Ms Reid is the first woman to ever be CEO of Kingston Council.

TRAINS on the Frankston line are running late more often, Metro figures reveal. Frankston line trains were on time 90.4 per cent of the time in April of this year, but that number has since dropped. In June, just 83.1 per cent of trains on the line ran on time. The number is also down on the 88.3 per cent of all Metro train services that ran on time during June. Metro Trains had set a target of 92 per cent punctuality. As a result of their failure to meet that target, Metro will compensate its passengers. Metro department acting deputy secretary Alan Fedda said “the sub 90 per cent performance means Metro will pay compensation to passengers. A number of incidents contributed to the result including an overhead power issue near Aircraft Station on 3 June and a collision between a train and car near Mentone Station on 12 June.” “Metro Trains’ contract with the state government includes tougher measures than ever before in relation to punctuality. We expect them to meet these targets and deliver a service that our passengers deserve,” he said. “These results are unacceptable and we will continue to work with Metro Trains to ensure its performance returns to the expected levels.” Mr Fedda said that more than 100 incidents involving ill passengers had also caused delays. He said that under the state government contract to operate the train and tram networks, Metro can be fined up to $1.25 million per month. Shadow minister for public transport David Davis said “despite the billions of dollars spent on public transport construction including level crossing removals on the Frankston line, the reality for Frankston line commuters is that there has been a dramatic and unacceptable fall in reliability and punctuality on their line.” Passengers can visit metrotrains.com.au to claim compensation.

Residents should ‘keep separating recycling’ Brodie Cowburn brodie@baysidenews.com.au KINGSTON Council has confirmed that their contract with SKM Recycling “continues” with recycling from the municipality being sent to SKM’s Hallam site. Councils statewide were hit by the news that the EPA had stopped SKM from receiving recycling at their Laverton North site earlier this month. SKM face an uncertain future, which could effect more than 30 councils

across Victoria. Kingston general manager of city assets and environment Daniel Freer said “unless the situation changes, our existing contract with SKM continues, with Kingston’s recycling being taken to their Hallam site.” “We have been meeting regularly with the state government and other south east local councils to establish partnerships and establish contingency plans, in case the situation changes so that we can respond quickly,” he said. “Council would like residents to continue separating their recycling

from their general rubbish and put it out for collection as usual. “We will continue to monitor the situation and meet with stakeholders to discuss the bigger picture.” Earlier this year Kingston became tied up in the state’s recycling crisis and was forced to send around 1300 tonnes of recyclable material to landfill. When two SKM centres were closed in February, Kingston Council negotiated a deal to send recyclable material to be processed by Polytrade (“Recycling saved from landfill”, The News, 27/3/19).

Kingston councillor Steve Staikos told his followers on Facebook that “the recycling industry in this country is at the point of market failure, and this is the time for meaningful government intervention, real leadership and practical solutions. This crisis will not be fixed by reviewing contracts or by finger pointing between councils and the state government. The community expects us to fix this. Especially as they pay waste levies, council rates and other waste charges.” “Kingston Council’s recycling is contracted to SKM, so this issue is im-

pacting our community. In metro Melbourne there are three major recycling providers, Polytrade, Visy and SKM. At this stage there are no other viable alternatives for councils to turn to,” he said. “Unless we start our own processing facilities which will take much time and a lot of money, and we haven’t been able to do this without breaking our contracts with our existing providers. Even then there’s the issue of what to do with the material we sort out.”

‘Healthy ageing’ centre for uni A NATIONAL centre for Healthy ageing will be established at Monash University’s Peninsula campus following a financial agreement between the federal government, Peninsula Health and the university. An existing building at the campus in Frankston will be extended to “accommodate staff and cutting-edge simulation environments/transformation facilities for research and education for community-based care”. Flinders MP and Health Minister, Greg Hunt, last week said the first “milestone payment” of the government’s $32 million contribution had been made. “The national centre, the first of its kind in Australia, will deliver new research and treatment programs for older people and those with addiction and mental health issues, backed by new state of the art physical testing environments and data infrastructure,” Mr Hunt said. “Bringing together the major health training, education and research activities at Monash’s Peninsula campus and Peninsula Health’s Frankston Hospital, the National Centre for Healthy Ageing will fast track and improve the health care of the nation’s most vulnerable people.” Mr Hunt said the Mornington Peninsula region’s population is one of the fastest ageing in Australia “making it the ideal place to trial innovative health care solutions for older people, whether it be at home or in residential aged care”. “Successful models would then be scaled up and rolled out across Australia.” Mr Hunt said the use of “state-of-the-art living labs” and technology, would see “new models of care focus on delivering greater independence so people can stay at home for longer and avoid unnecessary hospitalisations”. Mathew Langdon, Mr Hunt’s media contact, said ‘living labs’ was “a term used to describe real-life and life-like environments to help ensure research outcomes are easily implementable and lead to quick translation in the health system”. Priority work of the new centre would include developing strategies and programs “to engage and assist those at risk of having an unwanted transfer to the emergency department, to develop their end of life care plans”, Mr Hunt said. New models of care would be designed using assistive

technology within purpose-built facilities to improve quality of life through continued successful living at home and reduced hospital admissions. The centre will also partner with organisations in Frankston and on the peninsula to “identify addiction and severe mental illness solutions at the local level to improve the treatment for Australians with these illnesses”. One of the Frankston campus-based projects would use electronic record data to develop ways of monitoring the prevalence of dementia. The $600,000 grant to Monash University researchers will use the unique aspects of the peninsula region to conduct a pilot study for a program that will be rolled out across Victoria and nationally if successful,” Mr Hunt said. The university had also been given $2 million for a study designed to prevent and reduce the risk of developing dementia in 45-65 year olds. “Without a medical breakthrough, it is predicted that more than 1.1 million Australians will be living with dementia by 2056,” Mr Hunt said.

PROFESSOR David Copolov, Dr Johnson George, Greg Hunt, Dr Nadine Andrew, Felicity Topp and Professor Christina Mitchell announce a “national centre for healthy ageing”.

Free screenings to help spot cancer THE BreastScreen Victoria van will roll into Frankston on 5 August, offering free breast checks to women over 40. BreastScreen Victoria says that a breast screen is recommended for women older than 50 every two years, to help detect cancer early and act quickly. Frankston resident Tracee DavisHall was diagnosed with stage two breast cancer in June 2017, and said that getting checked regularly is “critical”. She went for a check after her GP asked her if she’d recently had a mammogram. “I felt fine and had a normal health check every 12 months but I couldn’t remember the last time I had a mammogram. I wasn’t self-checking, so I was very lucky my doctor asked the question. I am a lot more vigilant now and I’m really glad I acted on her advice,” Ms Davis-Hall said. “My family were hit harder than me because they felt helpless but I was in control and very matter of fact about it. I broke the treatment path down in stages, didn’t get ahead of myself and took it one step at a time. My grandson, Elijah, was born two months before my diagnosis and seeing him every day made me feel better, especially during the grueling first stages of chemotherapy.” Now two years on from being diagnosed, Ms Davis-Hall said “I worry less, am a lot calmer and I don’t stress about the little things. I’m getting more out of my life and ticking things off my bucket list.” “I was lucky I had a great network of family, friends and work colleagues

NEWLY elected Dunkley MP Peta Murphy has vowed to “continue to work hard” for the people of Frankston in the wake of a cancer diagnosis. Ms Murphy overcame a bout with breast cancer in 2011, but received news last week that her cancer had returned. “As many people know, in 2011 I was diagnosed with breast cancer. I received excellent treatment and, having passed the 5 year mark since my diagnosis we were confident that I was in the clear,” Ms Murphy said. “Last week we received the unexpected news that my cancer has returned. While this has come as a shock, my doctor advises me that my condition is treatable and that he expects me to do well with treatment, which I will start in coming weeks. “I have terrific support from family, friends and colleagues, and a strong fighting spirit.” Despite the diagnosis, Ms Murphy said she is committed to keeping up her work as an MP. On Wednesday she will be in Canberra to deliver her maiden speech as member for Dunkley. “I intend to continue to work hard to represent my community at home and in the parliament,” she said. Opposition Leader Anthony Albanese showed his support for Ms Murphy on social media. “Peta is one of the most impressive people in politics. Her first battle with cancer led her to run for parliament, and her second isn’t going to keep her away,” he said.

NEWS DESK Police patrol

with Brodie Cowburn

Drugs in raid SEVEN people have been arrested and several thousand cannabis plants have been seized after the execution of a series of warrants in Melbourne’s south east, 17 July. Eight warrants were executed at around 6am as part of Operation Escapist, part of an investigation into an alleged organised drug syndicate. The commercial and residential premises raided by police were across Clayton South, Waterways, Springvale, Dandenong South, Pakenham, Rowville and Carrum Downs. The raids saw police seize drugs, drug manufacturing equipment, and cash. Police said that “several significant hydroponic cannabis set-ups” were located inside factory buildings, with some of those holding around 1000 cannabis plants. Cocaine was also seized by police. Four men and three women were arrested and will be interviewed by police. Detective Acting Superintendent Craig Darlow said “drug manufacture, trafficking and use in the Victorian community continues to be a major concern for police.” “Operations like this highlight the links that drugs have to organised crime, plus we are seeing time and time again that many of our most violent crimes such as homicides and shootings have their roots in the drug trade,” he said. “The hydros that have been located today are absolutely on the larger end of the scale and we’re looking at seizing several thousand plants as part of this operation.

Thieves suit up

“Today’s result is incredibly pleasing for police and comes as a result of a lot of work put in not only by Victoria Police, but through working with our partner agencies.” Any information to Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000 or submit a confidential report online at www.crimestoppersvic.com.au

TWO men are being hunted by police after the theft of suits from Chadstone Shopping Centre in June. Police said that two men entered a closed shop at around 10pm, 6 June and grabbed six suits. The men put the suits into bags and left the centre. CCTV images have been released of the men police would like to speak to. One man is perceived to be Asian in appearance, with a dark moustache and beard. A second man is perceived to be Caucasian with a beard. Information to Crime Stoppers at 1800 333 000.

Kidnapping arrests TWO people have been arrested in relation to an alleged kidnapping in June of 2018. At around 3am, 3 June 2018, two men allegedly damaged another vehicle in Carrum Downs. The driver of the damaged car drove towards Ballarto Road, and the alleged offenders chased. The victim was allegedly run off the road, and dragged out of the car by the offenders. He was allegedly assaulted and put in the back seat of the car. He later escaped. A 21-year-old man who resides in Carrum Downs faced the Melbourne County Court on 10 July in relation to the incident, and was sentenced. Police say he is expected to be deported. A second man, a 20-year-old from Bittern, is expected to face the Melbourne County Court on 14 August. They both received a number of charges, including kidnapping and criminal damage.

Teens taken in POLICE have arrested four teenagers after chasing down an allegedly stolen car, overnight 17 July. Police spotted the Nissan X-Trail,

allegedly stolen from Blaxland Avenue Frankston South, driving in Dandenong at around 1am. Police allege that the vehicle took off when they tried to pull them over. The car was monitored through Rowville, Dandenong, Lyndhurst, Skye, Frankston and Carrum Downs. With the assistance of the airwing, the car was spotted and came to a stop on Frankston-Dandenong Road. The occupants of the car allegedly fled on foot into a Wedge Road backyard. A 17-year-old Frankston North girl and a 19-year-old woman from Frankston were arrested by police. With the assistance of the dog squad, a 16 and 17-year-old from Carrum

Downs were also arrested. All four are “assisting police with their enquiries”. Police believe a fifth person may still be outstanding. Witnesses or anyone with information can contact Crime Stoppers.

Carjacking arrests A 26-YEAR-old Edithvale man and a 25-year-old Warragul woman have been arrested and charged after an alleged carjacking, 19 July. Police believe a 68-year-old Langwarrin man was exiting his vehicle at around 3pm near Inglenook Crescent and Havana Crescent when he was approached by another man. The man allegedly produced a knife and stole the

A Warragul woman was charged with theft of motor vehicle and bailed to appear at Frankston Magistrates’ Court, 8 August The victim was uninjured. A 40-year-old man from Skye was also arrested at the Skye property on other unrelated theft matters.


100 YEARS AGO THIS WEEK...

Earthworks leave roads in miserable state Compiled by Cameron McCullough FOR weeks the universal cry in this district has been “How long O Lord how long” are we to suffer from the disadvantages of the atrocious and well-nigh impassable roads which are a distinct strain on ones religion. For miles, channels have been prepared for laying water-mains and these are now full of water and beginning to cave in. The resultant earth from the excavations is lying on main roads and the wheels of vehicles which are compelled to traverse these tracks (roads is a misnomer) resemble the wheels of a gun carriage. Apparently the whole work will have to be done again and the question arises – How will the costs compare with the estimates and who pays? To the lay mind it seems strange that sections were not completed and filled in at once, thus avoiding the present results. Evidently there has been mismanagement and muddling somewhere. *** THE members of the Frankston Peace Celebrations Committee are reminded that they are expected to attend a meeting for the purpose of settling accounts in connection with the recent demonstration at the Mechanics’ Hall, at 8 o’clock on Monday night, 28th inst. *** THE monthly meeting of the Seaford Progress Association takes place on Saturday (to-night) at 8 o’clock. Items on the business sheet include: Report of deputation re footpath, school site, motor traffic, smoke social, Carrum Vale Road, and general business by members.

*** AN impromptu dance, arranged by Mrs C. Tait and friends, took place in the Frankston Mechanics’ Hall last Saturday evening (Peace night.) The event proved entirely successful from every point of view and after paying expenses Mrs Tait was able to forward to the Secretary of the Frankston Branch of the Returned Soldiers Association the sum of £1 10s balance of the proceeds, as a donation to the Memorial Hall Fund. *** MR Wm Meldrum, of Somerville, who has disposed of his orchard, has instructed Messrs Brody and Mason to conduct a clearing sale on the property on Thursday, 31st July. Full particulars are advertised. *** AT the Committee meeting of the Ragged Boys’ home held at the Institution, on Tuesday evening, 15th inst, Mr W. Minton, the Hon Supt, presented the report of the recent concert held in the Town Hall, Melbourne, showing the net result to be £320. The chairman (Rev W. T. Roach) stated that the result was gratifying. Mr James Menzies, M.L.A., moved a motion that the architect, Mr A. Bestow, be instructed forthwith to draw up plans for the erection of the new wing at the Melbourne Boys’ Home, Frankston. A vote of thanks was passed to the Hon Physican of the Frankston Home, (Dr Atkinson) for his kind attention to the sick Boys of the Home. *** INTEREST in the forthcoming municipal elections is beginning to stir a little. The sub-division of the North Rid-

ing, whereby Seaford is now a separate Riding, makes it necessary for all three North Riding councillors, viz Crs Oates, Mason and Hoare, to retire. It can be stated definitely that the first two named will seek re-election for the North, and the possibilities are that Cr Hoare will seek one of the Seaford Riding seats. Mr F. W. Wells is spoken of as a likely candidate for the North Riding. He has been approached by a number of ratepayers, and, we understand, has given a favorable reply. At a public meeting held at Seaford a week or two ago, three candidates were nominated for the new Riding. They were, Messrs Armstrong, Howell and Lathan. It is now stated that Mr Armstrong will not be a candidate; as he has disposed of his property, and is leaving the district. It is practically certain that Mr R. McCulloch will accede to the wishes of his supporters and become a candidate for Seaford. It is also rumored that Mr W. Klauer, the hon secretary of Seaford Progress League, will also be in the field. *** THE death of of Mrs Gregory of “Malunnah” Frankston came as a painful shock to the community yesterday. Deceased was one of the best known and most highly respected residents of the district. She had been ailing for some time and on Wednesday last underwent an operation at a private hospital, East Melbourne. Although she appeared to rally after the operation she collapsed later and died early yesterday (Friday) morning. The deepest sympathy is felt for the family in their sad bereavement.

*** OUR LETTER BOX. MR McCOMB REPLIES. To the Editor. Sir,—May I further ask indulgence to trespass on your space while replying to strictures made by Mr. F. H. Wells in your issue of the 12th inst. His letter purports to be an answer to mine of the 28th ult., and is chiefly noticeable for its inaccuracies and personal aspersions. First, he impugns the genuineness of my letter, and then launches into an open attack. Neither of these, however, give me grave concern; yet it might be well to assure him that I am still sufficiently vigorous intellectually to have no necessity for signing my name under the contribution of another, neither is it my wont to make statements that are not literally and absolutely true. He suggests that my use of the word “reserve” is an inaccurate expression, and I certainly did not expect that necessity would be laid upon me to define it. I assumed that persons of average intelligence would know that land reserved from sale as freehold and set apart for a specific purpose is called a reserve, and when “the” is placed before same it indicates the meaning to be attached thereto, and, despite Mr. Wells’ effort for my enlightenment, I have not yet learned that the local cemetery is not a reserve because it is used for the purpose for which it was set apart. He does not deny that the destruction complained of was caused by fire, but seeks to justify the same by reference to the presence of weeds and undergrowth as a harbour for vermin, which

are matters foreign to my complaint, and in no way justify the use of fire without proper provision for its control. If the place was then such a disgrace, in my opinion it is much more so now, despite the liberal expenditure of time, energy, and cash since bestowed for its beautification. But I pass on to deal with his simile. He writes “The trees were like your critical correspondent, their day of ornament had passed.” Well, I admit that this, as a compliment in disguise, is alike flattering and consoling. It is gratifying to learn, even upon the authority of Mr. Wells, that I was once an ornament – a feeling I fear he will never share – but this likeness in beauty does not exhaust the simile. Mr. Wells found that after their day of ornament had passed these trees were useful for firewood, and so I, to complete his figure, must be still useful, and as use is better than ornament, I grieve not, seeing that I have been useful in eliciting a balance-sheet, which probably otherwise would not have been produced. I, however, unhesitatingly deny that the trees referred to had ceased to be ornamental, in any way endangered tombstones, or that there was any necessity for their removal. He says there are a few tons of wood remaining that I may have at that price, but he fails to state what authority he has for cutting down, removal, or sale of timber, hence how can he expect me to avail myself of his offer? I am, Sir; yours etc., JOSEPH R. McCOMB. *** FROM the pages of the Mornington Standard, 26 July 1919

THE MEANING OF EXISTENCE... AND OTHER SHORT STORIES

Great Moments in History: A Salute to Planking By Stuart McCullough IT was one of those ‘blink and you’ll miss it’ moments. One during which our gradual evolution as high functioning intelligent beings was briefly sacrificed for a moment of collective madness. It was a moment in which common sense, logic and – most tellingly of all – personal safety were set aside in pursuit of something that, at the time seemed overwhelmingly important but now – with the benefit of hindsight – seems unforgivably dumb. I speak, of course, of planking. Some things drag on for decades. Others burn briefly but brightly and, once they’re gone, all we have left are the comet-trails and a tonne of awkward selfies left to remind us of what was. When the history of this country is written, I hope it will include a brief chapter on planking. Granted, it was a fad that (at least according to Wikipedia) ‘gained popularity and eventually notoriety from late 2010 to early 2011 in Australia’, but it left us forever changed. (Incidentally, as a rule of thumb, you know you’ve crossed a line when the Internet feels the need to single you out for special mention. Just saying.) It was beautiful in its simplicity. All you had to do is lie down and pretend you were a wooden plank. That was the whole shebang. There was no training, no special skills, no complicated instructions. Anyone could participate. And anyone pretty much did. If that sounds too good to be true, there’s a twist: it’s not enough just to plank, you have to do so in an unexpected location. Be it an office chair, a footpath or – for those with an appetite for danger – on top of a really tall building. Then someone needs to take a picture of it. The art of planking might have seemed as though it came out of nowhere but, in fact, there was a surprisingly long gestation period. It was apparently developed in America in 1984 by a couple of teenagers. Two different teenagers took to another level by videoing their efforts

in the early nineties. But planking didn’t really take off as an international phenomenon until about 2007 when someone decided to post photos on Facebook. Ah, Facebook. It’s funny how often the various plagues of humanity can be traced back to the same social media platform. Whether it’s promoting planking or undermining democracy in exchange for advertising revenue in an act of unreconstructed treason, Facebook is always at the centre of the action. And so it was that planking took off (which is ironic, given how sedentary it is) right across the globe, particularly in Australia.

Things got out of hand. Quickly. Soon people were posting pictures of themselves planking in places where to plank was simply a very bad idea. People did it at work. People did it at the supermarket. One guy in Brisbane did it on a seventh floor balcony and lost his balance, plunging to his death. Ultimately, New Zealand Prime Minister John Key did it on a couch (for safety’s sake) and was accused of ruining it for everyone. Just as quickly as it appeared, it vanished. Almost overnight, talk of adding it to the school curriculum and including it as an Olympic sport dried up. People even lost interest in including planking on the twenty-dollar

note. The dream was over. Although planking as a fad has disappeared, it remains a legitimate form of exercise for those wishing to strengthen their core. For these people, planking always occurs in a safe environment. Somewhere, though, there’ll still be true believers; small pockets of plankers whose activities have been driven underground (which, incidentally, would be a very safe place to plank) as a means of avoiding social stigma. Doubtless they meet in secret and compare planking strategies, dreaming of the day when planking will be re-embraced by the general population. There have been other fads since. Things that have seized the public imagination before demanding a ransom and reluctantly letting it go again. There’s been dabbing (which ruined a generation of school photos), flossing (which insulted every dentist ever) and posting a video of yourself belting out ‘Let It Go’ at the top of your lungs while in full costume with your eyes closed. Or, on second thoughts, the ‘Let It Go’ thing could just be me. Next year is the tenth anniversary of ‘planking fever’. It’s an occasion that should not be allowed to slip by without remark. It should be celebrated. I’m not sure how best to commemorate this truly important time in our history. Coin? Commemorative stamp? A ‘first planking’ re-enactment on Sydney Harbour? A public holiday is a given. It would be poetic justice if celebrations included a statue, given that statues were prime planking targets back in the day. It’s funny what catches on. What, as a group, becomes important to us. As a kid, a yo-yo craze was an intermittent event that occurred in your local primary school and saw you and your classmates hotfoot it down to your local milk bar. The Internet has made that a universal experience. Happy planking to all. stuart@stuartmccullough.com

Pythons snatch victory

DIVISION ONE

By Brodie Cowburn PINES have come from behind to secure a thrilling win against Frankston Bombers.The Bombers raced out of the blocks with a brilliant first quarter, putting four goals on the board and holding the Pythons scoreless. Pines scraped their way back in the second quarter, but couldn’t snatch the lead. They were wasteful in front of goal and kicked 2.7 in the second term. The Pythons continued to fight in the second half, and managed to just sneak into a one point lead by the time the three-quarter time break rolled around. They held onto that one point lead in the final term, and eventually claimed the narrowest of wins. Frankston Bombers ended up falling to Pines in a nailibing scrap. The final score read 6.10 (46) to 6.11 (47). Luke Potts was named as one of Pines’ best, while Khyal Jacobson also was important with a three goal effort. Jarrad Grant kicked three goals for the Bombers, There was another thrilling contest at Emil Madsen Reserve, as Mt Eliza played host to Dromana. The Tigers started well away from home and took a lead into the second quarter, although it didn’t last long. The Redlegs fought back and led by a goal at the half time break. Mt Eliza continued to play well in the third term, and looked in the box seat for a victory as they went into the final quarter with a fourteen point lead.

Dromana worked hard in the last quarter, and set themselves up with a chance of victory by holding Mt Eliza to just one goal. The Tigers had to claw their way back, but eventually scored a hard fought six point win over the Redlegs. The final score was 10.12 (72) to 12.6 (78). Sam Fowler was best on field for the victorious Dromana outfit. He kicked four goals. Rosebud and Frankston YCW also had a tense encounter on Saturday, as Frankston YCW hit the road in an effort to get their season back on track. The Stonecats have been inconsistent this year, and were badly in need of a win against the Buds. Rosebud on the other hand have improved from their performance last year. Rosebud started strong with a good first quarter, holding YCW scoreless. They took a 26 point lead into the second term, which was quickly cut down to ten by half time. The third quarter was another good one for Rosebud, as they stretched their lead back out to 27. The Stonecats tried their best to claw back into contention and snatch a win in the final quarter, but it was too little too late. Rosebud were held goalless in the final term, and had to endure a late flurry, but they still claimed the win 10.6 (66) to 8.12 (60). Sean Downie was best on ground for the day. Things were not so stressful this weekend for Bonbeach who managed to secure a comfortable win over bot-

tom of the ladder Mornington. The Bulldogs started well and led at the first break of play, but it didn’t last long. Bonbeach rode a strong wave of momentum in front of their home

crowd, and did not look like losing after their sloppy first quarter. Trent Dennis-Lane led from the front for Bonbeach, putting six goals on the board for the afternoon.

Despite a good start, the Bulldogs hopes of staying in Division One next season were dealt a blow after Bonbeach defeated them 15.12 (102) to 4.9 (33).

Finals hopes dented for Blues DIVISION TWO

By Brodie Cowburn HASTINGS have fallen short in an important matchup at home against Rye on Saturday. The game looked to be a good chance for Hastings to get a win and keep touch with a finals spot. Rye came into the game below Hastings on the ladder. Hastings looked the better side in a scrappy first half. They led at both quarter-time and half time, but not by enough to be comfortable. Rye looked a much improved side after half time, and held Hastings to just two goals in the second half. The Demons rose from the dead to take a two point lead into the final quarter which they were able to hold on to. A win would have been vital to keep Hastings in touch of a finals position, but they could not manage to get the four points. The final score read Hastings 6.6 (42) to 7.11 (53). Harry Whitty was one of Rye’s best, kicking three goals. At Ballam Park Reserve, Karingal came from behind to secure a good win over Chelsea. The Seagulls were the better side early, and took a two goal lead into half time. The Bulls charged back in the third quarter, and held a narrow three point lead at three-quarter time. Karingal showed why they have been one of the best sides of the year with a strong final quarter. They shot

down the Seagulls’ hopes of an upset with a 5.10 to 0.0 quarter. Kairngal scored the win 11.22 (88) to 7.3 (45). Marc Holt was leading goalkicker on the day with four. He has 62 for the year. Red Hill bounced back from the goalless performance last week with a massive win over Pearcedale. Pearcedale hosted the Hillmen, and struggled from the get go. They scored one first quarter goal, but only managed one behind for the rest of the afternoon. Red Hill put together another defensive masterclass, and reaffirmed their status as one of the premiership contenders. Pearcedale were whallopped by 118 points. The final score was 1.1 (7) to 17.23 (125). At Lloyd Park, Langwarrin had little trouble fending off a challenge from Seaford. Langwarrin showed their intent early with a seven goals to one first quarter. The Tigers weren’t able to recover from their sloppy start. Josh Biggs had a big game for the Kangaroos, and put six goals on the board. His side claimed the win 15.8 (98) to 7.10 (52). Somerville had an enjoyable day at home, as they defeated Tyabb by 103 points. It was a goal fest for the soaring Somerville, who had 12 individual goalkickers. Ryan Gillis scored six while Daniel Marshall booted four.

The Yabbies were outclassed on the day, with the final scoreboard reading 23.15 (153) to 7.8 (50). It was also another difficult day for

Five-star display by Dylan Waugh SOCCER

By Craig MacKenzie A STUNNING performance from Seaford striker Dylan Waugh highlighted last weekend’s round of matches. The gun forward scored all of Seaford’s goals in a 5-1 trouncing of FC Noble Hurricanes at North Seaford Reserve on Saturday. Harry McCartney reports that the Waugh onslaught started after just five minutes when he won a 50/50 challenge with the last Hurricanes defender then easily sidefooted the ball home. Seaford dominated the first half but had to wait until the 39th minute to gain reward for its efforts when Waugh pounced on a bouncing ball and delicately tapped it over the head of Hurricanes keeper Andrea Stoilovic to make it 2-0. But two minutes later the visitors hit back when Nicholas Phaedonas got a toe to the ball in a crowded box to keep them in the hunt. Waugh gave Seaford breathing space and notched his hat-trick in the 54th minute when he was given time to unleash a 25-metre drive into the top corner leaving Stoilovic fuming with his defence. Stoilovic added to his frustration three minutes later when he misjudged a free-kick and Waugh caught out the flat-footed Hurricanes defence to make it 4-1. When Mitch Lander was brought down inside the area in the 62nd minute there was little doubt about who would take the resultant penalty and Waugh didn’t disappoint as he slotted home his fifth to complete an impressive day at the office for the big man. Things for the visitors went from bad to worse in the 87th minute when substitute Erik Pulo was sent off. In NPL news Langwarrin strolled to a comfortable 4-0 win over Springvale White Eagles at Lawton Park on Saturday without midfielder Wayne Wallace who was rested or defenders Luke Burgess and Jamie Cumming who were suspended. Lucas Portelli opened the scoring in the 13th minute when he was at the near post to head home a Jordan Templin free kick from the left. A superb move down the right involving Damir Stoilovic and Callum Goulding ended with the latter cutting the ball back to Thomas Ahmadzai whose shot was touched in by John Baird to make it 2-0 four minutes from half-time. In the 71st minute Brandon Jansz played in substitute David Stirton whose strike across the face of goal was tapped in by Stoilovic putting his former club out of the contest.

High five: Seaford striker Dylan Waugh had a day out at North Seaford Reserve on Saturday. Picture: John Punshon.

A good day’s work was completed two minutes later when an extravagant Stoilovic lay-off was volleyed home by Goulding in superb style. In NPLW news Southern United lost 3-0 to Geelong Galaxy United at Monterey Reserve last weekend. Southern’s under-19s won 4-1 with goals from Sita Karimi (2) and Talia Palmer (2) while the under-16s drew 3-3 with Rhys McKenna (2) and Sage Kirby scoring for Southern and Tanysha Hogan named player of the match. The under-14s won 1-0 thanks to Chiara Renzeme’s first goal of the season and a player of the match performance from South Melbourne recruit Ellena Zissis. Meanwhile the reputation of former Langwarrin junior Alana Murphy continues to grow after the gifted teenager was named player of the tournament at the under-15 national championships at Coffs Harbour last week. The 13-year-old has been involved with Victoria’s National Training Centre program for the past few seasons and was used both in midfield and up front by Victoria to showcase her talents with junior Matildas coach Rae Dower a keen onlooker. In State 1 news Mornington lost 2-1 at home to Caulfield United Zebras last weekend. The home side was set back on its heels with two Caulfield goals in the opening 20 minutes, the first a low leftfoot shot from Cory Kibler-Melby and the second an own goal from defender Charlie Parker. Mornington hit back in the 30th minute when Sam Luxford was at the back post to finish from a Craig Smart free kick and despite long periods of the second half played inside Mornington’s

attacking half it couldn’t break down Caulfield’s resistance. Striker Josh Hine has returned to England for three weeks but Scottish striker Liam Baxter came off the bench for his first appearance sign rejoining Mornington a fortnight ago. In State 2 news a controversial finish marred the 2-2 draw between Doncaster Rovers and Peninsula Strikers at Anderson Park on Friday night. Goals by Michael Hoogendyk and Matt Harrington gave Strikers a 2-0 lead after 55 minutes but Abdirahman Ahmed reduced the deficit in the 65th minute. In the 90th minute a hotly contested penalty decision gave Sayed Hussain the chance to level the scores and he made no mistake from the spot. Strikers keeper Colin McCormack and Hussain were involved in a clash straight after the penalty had been taken and after an intervention by the linesman McCormack was red carded. In State 3 news Skye United hammered cellar dwellers Middle Park 5-1 at Albert Park on Saturday. Skye kicked off proceedings in the 7th minute when Daniel Attard’s switch sent Marcus Anastasiou clear, and the youngster rounded Middle Park custodian Fadi Qunqar and finished into an unguarded goal. Mitch Blake doubled the lead in the 27th minute when he got on the end of a Saj Sugrim cross from the left. The second half was much of the same as Skye dominated and when Mark O’Connor sent Attard clear in the 58th minute the big man put the ball into the top corner. Skye won possession straight from the restart and Attard sent Blake clear who rounded the keeper to make it 4-0.

FRANKSTON FOOTBALL CLUB

Substitute Michael Turner was brought down inside the box in the 77th minute and Daniel Walsh made it 5-0. Middle Park’s consolation goal came in the 90th minute when the ball was bundled over the goal line. Skye reserves coach Liam George resigned last week for personal reasons not connected to the club. He was in his fourth season at the helm. State 3 rival Frankston Pines led twice but had to settle for a 2-2 draw with Brighton at Monterey Reserve on Friday night. Three late goals in six minutes had spectators glued to the action and left Pines ruing the one that got away. It took a special strike from 18-yearold Pines central defender Aiden McKenna to break the deadlock in the 55th minute. Brighton failed to clear properly following a corner and Bailey Atkinson touched the ball off to McKenna outside the box and he curled a stunning leftfoot strike into the top far corner. In the 85th minute a superb ball in from the right was headed home from point-blank range by Brighton substitute Nick Bale to make it 1-1. Five minutes later Travis Ernsdoerfer’s commitment and perseverance saw him block the ball then chase it down and just keep it in play wide on the left. He checked back inside then sent over a near post cross that was touched in by Kevin Brown for what looked like the winner. A minute later Pines’ players and bench were in dismay when Kia Walsh made it 2-2 from close range. Striker Jason Bradbury has left Pines and joined Queensland NPL club Sunshine Coast Fire. He had switched to Pines from Mornington during the offseason. In State 4 news Baxter lost 3-2 at home to Endeavour United last weekend. Endeavour hit the front in the 8th minute when Ifeoluwa Ogidan got free on the left of the area and finished superbly past Baxter keeper James Foster. Two minutes later Charlie Jones scored with a well-taken strike after Endeavour failed to clear a Baxter corner. But the visitors took a 2-1 lead into the interval after a Foster mistake gifted a goal to Ahmed Tabbara. A superb Stuart McKenzie header in the 50th minute made it 2-2 but Baxter was caught square at the back 10 minutes later and Ogidan made it pay dearly when he broke clear and neatly slotted the ball past the advancing Foster for what proved to be the winner.

A bizarre moment arrived in the 69th minute when Endeavour’s Harry Herouvim was red carded. He’d been booked minutes earlier after scything down Nat Daher and when he decided to grab the flag and fling it out of his way as he prepared to take a corner the referee sprang to the flag’s defence with a second caution. Daher too was given his marching orders after a second caution in the 82nd minute. In State 5 news Somerville Eagles inflicted Tullamarine’s first home defeat of the season with a 3-1 win on Saturday. The Eagles did the double against Tulla and no prizes for guessing who opened the scoring. A brilliant through ball from Mark Pagliarulo in the 13th minute was clinically despatched by Dave Greening for his 50th goal for the club and his 300th in Australia. With half-time looming a wind-assisted free-kick wasn’t cleared and substitute Ugur Erdem poked the ball home for the equaliser. In the 53rd minute Pagliarulo found some space and fired an unstoppable drive past the keeper before celebrating in style after being subjected to a torrent of abuse. In the 66th minute Callum Richardson grabbed his fifth goal in three games with a superb strike that went in off the post after good work by Pagliarulo and Ben Meiklem. Tulla’s Benan Kuzucu and Somerville’s Eric Manhanong were both sent off in injury time. Aspendale Stingrays went down 3-1 at home to White Star Dandenong last weekend with Anthony Segavac scoring for the Stingrays. Aspendale’s best were Peter Dimopoulos, Patrick Diakogeorgiou and Sonny Lindsay. This weekend’s games: SATURDAY, 3pm: Southern Utd v Bayside Utd (Monterey Reserve; under12s 9am, under-14s 10.10am, under-16s 11.30am, under-19s 1pm), Mornington v Warragul Utd (Lawton Park), Bayside Argonauts v Skye Utd (Shipston Reserve), South Yarra v Frankston Pines (Fawkner Park South), Keysborough v Seaford Utd (Coomoora Reserve), FC Noble Hurricanes v Baxter (Alex Nelson Reserve), Somerville Eagles v Aspendale Stingrays (Tyabb Central Reserve), Rosebud v White Star Dandenong (Olympic Park).
