Recycling saved from landfill Brodie Cowburn brodie@baysidenews.com.au AFTER being forced to send around 1300 tonnes of recyclable materials to landfill in the last month, Kingston Council has secured a deal to have all of their recycling properly processed. Kingston were among more than 20 councils caught up in the state’s recycling crisis, after the closure of two

SKM recycling centres was ordered following action from the Environment Protection Authority. The EPA ordered the closure of SKM’s Coolaroo and Laverton sites on 15 February. Initially a deal was worked out with alternative recycling provider Polytrade to have 20 per cent of Kingston’s recycling properly processed (“Negotiations to save Kingston recycling from landfill”, The News,

27/2/19). Over a month later, Kingston has negotiated to ensure that all recycling from the municipality is diverted away from landfill. Kingston city assets and environment general manager Daniel Freer said “we’re pleased that 100 per cent of Kingston’s recyclables are once again being collected for recycling. Council was disappointed that the recent recycling crisis which impacted

more than 20 local councils had forced some Kingston recyclables to be sent to landfill.” “The closure occurred after the EPA took necessary action and temporarily closed recycling company SKM, which receives Kingston’s recyclable materials, and required cleanup works at the site. In the meantime, Kingston has been able to negotiate an agreement with an alternative recycling

provider,” he said. “At first 20 per cent of Kingston’s recyclables were accepted, this was later increased to 70 per cent and now to 100 per cent, which is great news. Sadly, between mid-February to midMarch around 1300 tonnes of recyclable material had to be sent to landfill. “Kingston looks forward to SKM resuming full operations as soon as possible.”

All set for Pet Expo KINGSTON’S annual Pet Expo will return this weekend, offering a range of services and activities for pet owners to enjoy. The mayor Georgina Oxley said “ the Pet Expo is a fun, and cheap, day out for the whole family where animals get to take centre stage.” “With obstacle courses, demonstrations pet-look-alike competitions and a petting zoo, Kingston’s Pet Expo is a terrific way to promote responsible pet ownership and to celebrate our love for animals and pets within the community,” she said. “Animal enthusiasts, pet owners and their four-legged friends are all invited to Kingston Council’s annual Pet Expo at Kingston Heath Reserve.” Services available at the expo include pet registration. Activities on the day will include face painting, pony rides, a puppy cafe, guide dog demonstrations, a petting zoo, a dog look alike contest and more. Council’s animal management officer Karen Crowther said “we absolutely love working at this event. We’re too busy working to bring along our beloved pets, but we have so much fun meeting pets and owners from across the city and south east Melbourne.” The event will run from 10am - 3pm on 30 March at Kingston Heath Reserve in Cheltenham. All dogs must be on a leash. Visit kingston.vic.gov.au/pet-expo for details.

Eleven buildings at cladding risk Brodie Cowburn brodie@baysidenews.com.au A VICTORIAN Building Authority audit has revealed that 11 privately owned buildings in the Kingston municipality have been identified as having dangerous cladding. Eight privately owned buildings in the Frankston municipality were “identified with cladding” as part of the VBA’s statewide audit into dangerous cladding. Mornington Peninsula Shire had two buildings identified as part of the audit. Kingston Council is not signed up to the Cladding Rectification Scheme, a state government initiative designed to help provide financial support to people affected by dangerous cladding.

Car chaos WITNESSES are being sought after two collisions in Parkdale and Mordialloc after 8.30pm, Friday 22 March. Police were told a blue ford ute had been driving erratically and crashed into a pole on Station Street Mordialloc. The driver was taken to hospital in a critical condition. The 21-year-old Chelsea Heights man struck the pole at around 8.50pm. It is alleged that 20 minutes earlier he had been driving dangerously on the Nepean Highway and collided with a grey Toyota. The Toyota rolled and the driver of the ute allegedly fled. The driver of the Toyota, a 69-year-old woman from Mount Eliza, was taken to hospital for observation. Police are keen to speak to any witnesses or anyone who may have dash cam footage. Anyone with information is urged to contact Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000 or submit a confidential report online at www. crimestoppersvic.com.au

Car theft outside court

A MAN posing as a tradie who scammed a Frankston woman out of nearly $30,000 has been slapped with a $200 dollar fine and a 14 day jail sentence.

FRANKSTON Police are investigating a brazen car theft that occurred near the police station and Frankston Magistrates’ Court on 19 March. Detectives were told that the owner of the car had dropped their keys on the ground on Fletcher Road at around 10am. It is alleged that a man picked the keys up and used them to steal a 2002 blue Holden commodore. The car had the license plate number 1ML3LU. The man who is alleged to have picked up the keys is of a caucasian appearance, around 180 centimetres tall with a solid build and dark hair. Police have released a CCTV image of a man who they “believe may be able to assist with their enquiries.” Anyone with information is urged to contact Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000 or submit a confidential report online at www. crimestoppersvic.com.au

James Joseph O’Connor was sentenced on 20 March, and was ordered to pay $23,000 in restitution. Frankston Police said he is an Irish national and is expected to be deported. Fake flyer: A flyer used as part of a tradie scam.

Rail extension business case ‘on track’ Brodie Cowburn brodie@baysidenews.com.au FRANKSTON MP Paul Edbrooke has branded the Baxter line business case as “on track” for completion to alleviate concerns over its progress. Mr Edbrooke told The News that the case “isn’t late. Any dialogue about the state government being at fault for the federal government being unable to deliver their project which has zero funds committed to it this financial year is plain wrong.” “If the federal government wanted the business case done earlier, they should have delivered the $3 million in funding for it earlier,” he said.

The original state government media release from April 2018 announcing the beginning of the business case said it would be “expected to be finalised in early 2019”. Mr Edbrooke said “it would always take 12-18 months to complete once business case funding was received.” He said the federal government’s announced funding was providing a roadblock to any work beginning. “The federal government’s own budget shows only $10 million funding for the next financial year,” he said. “It’s going to take a long time with only approximately a quarter of the funding budgeted. If they wanted to start it they would have budgeted near $1 billion.” Dunkley MP Chris Crewther tried to derail Mr

Edbrooke’s argument that the project was not properly funded. He said “the Liberal National government has delivered $228 million for this project, only to see Labor kick this project down the road and invest nothing.” Mr Crewther accused the state government of “playing politics” by “delaying the commencement of the business plan to begin with and now delaying the completion of the business plan”. “This issue is of such little importance to Labor, they could not be bothered to even fund a business case for the project,” he said. “The only reason the business case was able to proceed was thanks to $3 million in funding, delivered by the Liberal National government. Labor has left $228 million in delivered federal funding sitting at the station.”

THE federal government may get involved in safety and accessibility issues at The Pillars cliff jumping site if Labor wins the May election. The party’s candidate for Flinders, Joshua Sinclair says the 400 metre long “temporary” fence erected along the Esplanade at Mt Martha by Mornington Peninsula Shire should be replaced by a boardwalk. Mr Sinclair says that if elected he will work closely with the shire “to ensure an environmentally appropriate, safe, and accessible boardwalk is built”. “The Pillars are a Mornington Peninsula institution,” Mr Sinclair said. “Despite this unsightly wall, the place has still been flooded with tourists and locals all summer. “Removing The Pillars wall and building an appropriate path is the first step in making this part of Mt Martha safe for pedestrians.” While acknowledging that safety and access at The Pillars were not federal issues, Mr Sinclair said “it's important for me to campaign and advocate with council on issues that the peninsula youth care about”.

MARK Rees and his support team from Rotary Club Frankston Sunrise have banded together to take flight at the Moomba birdman rally and raise over $70,000 to help children have access to clean drinking water. Mr Rees, the father of last year’s king of Moomba Jimmy Giggle, was flying to raise money to buy SkyHydrants. “When I saw the Birdman title was more about fundraising than actually flying I knew I had a chance to pull it off. The Rotary Club of Frankston Sunrise and I set a target of $15,000 and ultimately raised $16,000,” Mr Rees said. “Under the rules of the Birdman Rally each $500 raised earns you a point which is added to the distance you fly. I only flew 7 meters but had 32 fundraising points. The total of 39 was enough to win.” Mr Rees said that purchasing SkyHydrants would help “filter dirty water into clean drinkable water at 1000 litres an hour.” “Rotary clubs purchase these SkyHydrants and send them to schools in third world countries. The end result is that children attend school more often as they are not so regularly sick from their local water. As a consequence they get a better education and hopefully a better life,” he said. “$5000 buys one SkyHydrant so $16,000 will buy three. However the really good news is that the city of Melbourne donates a further $10,000 for winning the Birdman Rally plus there’s another $9,000 donated which wasn’t officially counted. This total of $35,000 will then be matched by a Rotary Global Grant to become $70,000.” Learn to fly: Mark Rees in his Birdman gear with his Rotary Club Frankston Sunrise team. Picture: Supplied

Saturday 30th March IT’S magical autumn on the Mornington Peninsula and the banner poles around the City of Frankston proudly proclaim that Frankston Music Festival is back for its third year. Pre-festival kicks off this Sunday at Cube 37 with a Community Forum led by Frankston’s very own Tim Costello. Mr Costello is one of Australia’s most respected community leaders and a sought-after voice on social justice issues, leadership and ethics. After spending 13 years as the Chief Executive of World Vision Australia, Mr Costello continues to place the challenges of global poverty on the national agenda.  Within the forum Mr Costello will share some of his most interesting experiences about his time with World Vision, a role that saw him named Victoria’s Australian of the Year in 2006. Mr Costello is also getting together a panel of locals for an on the couch style interview where he hopes to get to the very heart of Frankston issues and what makes locals tick. It will be an afternoon not to be missed by all residents interested in our community and candidates seeking to represent them in the coming federal election.

Prior to the community forum, the incredible Erica Bramham Trio will perform the songs of Joni Mitchell. Hailed by Rolling Stone as one of the greatest songwriters ever, Joni Mitchell’s songs reflect on environmental and social ideals, and have found their way into the hearts and repertoire of fans and musicians across the world. This tribute to Joni Mitchell has been performed to sell out audiences at Melbourne’s prestigious Paris Cat. If you are a fan of the music of Joni Mitchell or just want to learn more, this show is a must. The Frankston Music Festival officially kicks off on Friday, 26 April at a Gala Opening Night at Frankston Arts Centre headlined by flamboyant Jeff Duff’s salute to David Bowie’s musical career in Bowie Unzipped. With over 50 performances across multiple Frankston venues throughout one huge week, with rock and pop to jazz, blues and classical, there is something to entertain lovers of all styles of music.

Car makers call for vital safety check SPONSORED CONTENT

C

AR makers have called on vehicle owners to urgently check if their vehicles are affected by the Takata airbag recall saying they risked serious harm by failing to make a simple check. The faulty Takata airbags have the potential to seriously injure or even kill vehicle drivers and passengers. There have been 24 reported deaths and more than 300 reported injuries globally attributed to the faulty airbags. Federal Chamber of Automotive Industries chief executive Tony Weber said Australians had checked the recall status of more than seven million vehicles on the automotive industry’s Takata Airbag recall website www.ismyairbagsafe.com.au since it was launched in July 2018.

This had helped vehicle owners identify over one million vehicles that were affected by the recall and needed to be taken to dealerships for the replacement of faulty airbags. “Our roads are busy with people travelling with their families,” Mr Weber said. "We plead with vehicle owners to urgently check the status of their vehicle. It’s simple and free – just go to the website and enter your vehicle’s registration plate number and state or territory.” “If your vehicle is affected, you can make arrangements with your vehicle brand’s local dealership to have the faulty airbag replaced.” Mr Weber said car makers had replaced the airbags in more than two million vehicles. “The industry has made significant progress.

"But there are still approximately one million vehicles to be rectified. These vehicles are located throughout Australia. "They are in every state and territory, every city, every regional town and every post code. They are fleet vehicles, business vehicles and family vehicles," Mr Weber said. In addition to checking the status of their vehicles, Mr Weber said it was essential vehicle owners immediately followed-up any communication they received directly from their vehicle’s manufacturer. “Don’t ignore the communication, don’t put it to one side and don’t forget to make a simple service booking.” ■ This is sponsored content for Federal Chamber of Automotive Industries.

Bonbeach FNC

Frankston YCW FNC THE Frankston YCW Stonecats had a rollercoaster year in 2018, recovering from a massive losing streak to make finals. The Stonecats showed the form that has seen them dominate for the last decade when they started the season off with a win, but they ended up on a seven game losing streak. They were hampered by injuries and lost long time ruckman Ash Eames to retirement. Frankston YCW recovered brilliantly to finish the regular season with 9 wins and one draw, just scraping into finals. Frankston YCW won their first final but were eventually knocked out by Mt Eliza on the back of a big performance from Jordan Moncrieff. The emergence of young ruckman Macklin Raine was a highlight.

After being grand finalists in 2017, Bonbeach had a disappointing 2018. They won seven games and fell short of the finals. Bonbeach finished seventh on the ladder, just behind the Frankston Bombers. The star player for Bonbeach was Trent Dennis–Lane who booted in 46 goals in 17 games. Trent averaged 2.71 goals per game. In 2019 the club expects improved results across all football and netball teams.

Rosebud FNC

PINES will be looking to go back to back after a fantastic season which saw them win the grand final. Pines won the premiership in thrilling fashion, kicking a point after the siren. Their star player of the season was league best and fairest winner Paul Scanlon. Their season was also helped by former AFL forward Aaron Edwards, who kicked a total of 72 goals in 19 matches. One key offseason signing was former Richmond forward Robin Nahas. Senior Coach Paddy Swayn said that the 2018 season was “an overall success because of our fantastic run in the finals.” “Our main focus this year would to be more consistent and win more games, while staying fit and healthy until the end of the season. Our goal is to win the premiership and go back to back”.

ROSEBUD had a surprisingly disappointing season, finishing in ninth place. They only won four games and they were nowhere near making the finals. They won their first game of the season 77-67 but they didn’t get another win until two months later. Their 2019 season will be overseen by a fresh pair of eyes with former premiership coach Nick Jewell, son of former Tigers premiership coach Tony Jewell, returning to the helm. Their 2018 Senior Coach Adrian McBean said “I thought 2018 was a very good season because of the team’s attitude and because of the team chemistry.” “The club could improve on recruiting new players and bringing in some fresh talent to help them win more games,”

MORNINGTON Football Club had a rather disappointing 2018 season. They finished eighth and they only won four games. The lack of wins meant that Mornington FC did not make the finals. A highlight in Mornington’s season was thrashing Rosebud by 51 points in a compelling victory. Jackson Calder was the team’s leading goal scorer with 41 goals in 18 matches. Jackson averaged 2.28 goals per game. Senior Coach, Simon Goosey said “We had a lot of things go our way at the start of the season but we unfortunately had a lot of our key players injured. We played fairly well throughout the season we just couldn’t finish our chances in close games” “Our goal is to play division one finals footy.”

MT ELIZA Football Club had a brilliant season. They won 13 games, made the finals and finished second on the ladder. Mt Eliza had a few amazing performances throughout the season. They had a total of six games were they scored over 100 points. On the August 4, Mt Eliza played Rosebud and destroyed them by 85 points. Overall Mt Eliza had a very successful season, which should come as no surprise because of the clubs mostly prestigious history throughout the decade. Jordan Moncrieff was the team’s star player with 58 goals in 21 matches.

Frankston Bombers FNC

RIGHT up until the last kick of the year, the Sorrento Sharks were enjoying a very good season, winning 15 games and making the grand final. They enjoyed having some scary firepower up forward, with Leigh Poholke top scoring with 54 goals in 20 matches. The Sharks suffered a rough loss to start the year but bounced back to finish on top of the ladder.

THE Frankston Bombers endured a mediocre season in 2018, only winning nine games which meant they missed out on the finals. Star player Jarrad Grant, formerly of Western Bulldogs and Gold Coast, was experimented in a few different positions but ultimately could not find the form expected of an ex-AFL player. The Frankston Bombers finished sixth on the ladder, a game out of a finals spot. Playing coach Beau Muston said to improve in 2019, his side must “sharpen up for division one footy and not miss our chances in close games.” “We have recruited some new players to hopefully strengthen our squad for the upcoming season,” he said. “Our goal is to make the finals and play proper division one footy”. They will be helped by the signing of young ruckman Harry Prior and speedy half back Sam Pickess.

Dromana FNC

Edi-Asp Sporting Club

DROMANA had an unbelievable season. They destroyed almost every team in the competition. Dromana only lost two games throughout the regular season and the finals, winning the other 19 and the grand final. Dromana finished in 1st place and earned a well-deserved promotion to the division 1 football league. Ethan Johnstone was the leading goal scorer with 54 goals whacked in, in 20 matches.

EDITHVALE-ASPENDALE had a very good season. They won 12 games and made the finals. However, they were eliminated from the finals in their first game. Edithvale-Aspendale finished fourth on the ladder, just behind the Pines. The leading goal scorer on this team was Michael Bussey with 21 goals in 15 matches. Senior coach Graeme Yeats said “Our season was a tough one. We underachieved in the finals, we were kicked out in the first week and we failed our expectations”. “We have made a few key signings to hopefully help us in the 2019 season. Tom Lamb and Callan Van Dyke are two of our promising players.”

Langwarrin FNC

MPNFL Division Two

LANGWARRIN had a relatively good year with 10 wins in the regular season and two wins in the finals (out of three games). They only finished in fifth place however. Jesse Murphy was a goal scoring threat throughout the season. He finished the season with a fantastic record of 74 goals kicked in 21 matches. On the final game of the regular season Langwarrin secured a win over Pearcedale by 107 points. Senior Coach, Josh Beard said “Realistically we were lucky to make the finals by only two points. We could have been more organized off the field and our team needs to improve our footwork skills.” “We have made a few key signings for the 2019 season. Two of our promising new players come from Melbourne Football Club and another one comes from the Franskton Bombers”, he said.

Rye FNC

RYE had a disappointing season. They only won six games and they did not make the finals. Rye finished in ninth place on the ladder, only a few spots away from being relegated. Nicholas Strickland was the team’s most consistent goal scorer. He kicked 24 goals in 18 matches. Despite the lack of wins through the season, Rye managed to beat Pearcedale by 51 points halfway through the year. This was the best game Rye played all season. Senior Coach, Josh Moore said “The Rye Football Club has been experimenting with younger players during the last couple of seasons. We have been promoting lots of the players from the under 19’s to the senior team. The exposure to division 1 often can be quite difficult for the young players, as the competition is a lot harder”

Hastings FNC

Somerville FNC

HASTINGS had a brilliant start to the season with a huge win against Crib Point. Hastings won by 111 points. This was the biggest victory of the season. Hastings finished the season with 10 wins but they did not make the finals. They ended the season in sixth place. The best player on the team was Luke Hewitt. Luke kicked 45 goals in 18 matches. Senior Coach Rikki Ferraro said “The season was very disappointing. We missed the finals by half a game and lots of our players did their own thing instead of sticking to the game plan”. “The season was one of the worst in club history because of off field issues, but we have signed some star players, one of them being AFL legend, Brendan Fevola to help the club achieve success in the 2019 season”, Rikki said.

SOMERVILLE had a mediocre season at best. They only won six games and they did not come close to making the finals. Somerville finished eighth behind Pearcedale. Billy Rolfe was the team’s most frequent goal scorer with 39 goals scored in 16 games.

Chelsea FNC

MPNFL Division Two

Crib Point FNC

CHELSEA had a decent season. They won 12 games and made the finals, however Chelsea were knocked out of the finals instantly after they lost to Langwarrin by 12 points. Chelsea finished fourth on the ladder behind Karingal. Curtis Bywater was the team’s leading goal scorer. He booted in 65 goals in 19 matches.

AFTER finishing top of the ladder in 2014, they lost the grand final. Since then, Crib Point have spent a few years in the wilderness consistently coming in the bottom couple of teams in the competition. 2019 sees the appointment of a new coach, Steve Hamill. “We feel really positive about 2019” said Steve. “Obviously we’re starting from a low base, but the great thing about Crib Point is all our players have their best football ahead of them. “The players are very coachable, and a lot of them are locals, so they love the club with great passion. “The only way is up, and we’re working on getting that winning culture back at Crib Point!”

Red Hill FNC

Tyabb FNC

RED HILL had a brilliant year. They racked up 13 wins in the normal season, two wins in the finals and they played in the grand final. They lost the grand final however. Red Hill finished second on the ladder behind Dromana. Jonathon Ross was the primary goal scorer on the 2018 Red Hill team with 42 goals in 21 matches. Red Hill has had four successful final runs since 2014 and one of their players, Alex Lee was sent to Port Adelaide. This all means that Red Hill is destined to win a trophy very soon.

TYABB have had a tough few years, but 2018 saw much improvement. While the ladder had them as second bottom with six wins and 12 losses, there were five teams with six wins. It was only on percentage that kept them that low, and if they had even one more win, they would have been knocking on the door of finals football. “We are feeling optimistic,” said coach Aaron Pacey. “We have a good bunch of kids coming through that are really promising and stepping up to senior football. We’ve also added a few new recruits and have a few others returning to the club for 2019.”

Karingal FNC

Seaford FNC

Pearcedale FNC

Devon Meadows FNC

KARINGAL had a pretty decent season with 13 wins, finals footy and a nice third place finish on the ladder. Unfortunately for Karingal they lost both games they played in the finals and were eliminated Matthew Stanley was the team’s primary scorer with 28 goals booted in 11 matches.

PEARCEDALE had a very poor season. They only won six games and they did not come close to making the finals. Travis Bravo was the team’s main goal scorer with 22 goals in 18 matches. Pearcedale finished seventh on the ladder. Pearcedale have not achieved much success since 2003, the last time they won any silverware.

SEAFORD suffered through a shocking year in 2018, finishing bottom and being relegated to Division Two. They only won three games. Their top goal scorer for the year was Curtis Barker, who booted 24 goals in 17 games. The biggest triumph for Seaford in the 2018 season was during the first game of the year, when they secured a nice win over the future grand final winners, the Pines Pythons.

DESPITE a fantastic win over Pearcedale at the start of the season, Devon Meadows had a dreadful season that was filled with difficult events. They only won six games and they missed the finals. Devon Meadows finished tenth on the ladder, just shy of relegation. Michael Theodoridis was the star player on the team. He kicked 60 goals in 18 matches.

100 YEARS AGO THIS WEEK...

Early settler, Henry Scarborough, dies at 81 Compiled by Brodie Cowburn MR Henry Scarborough, who died at the residence of his son, Cranbourne Road, Frankston, on Tuesday last, had attained the ripe old age of 81 years. He was born in 1838 near what is now Market Street, Melbourne, 3 years after the Yarra district became a white settlement. Mr. J. Fleming, a member of the Brunswick shire council, who is still living, was Mr Scarborough’s senior by a few months, and is believed to be the oldest Victorian native. Mr Scarborough’s father was the first poundkeeper of Melbourne, the pound being situate in Elizabeth Street opposite the present site of the Victorian markets. The old gentleman came to Frankston some 40 years ago, and was one of the oldest parishioners of St. Paul’s Church, in which, for upwards of 30 years he hold office as verger and churchwarden. Mrs Scarborough, who was a daughter of Mr Swords of Dandenong, predeceased her husband by 23 years. There were 12 children 8 of whom still survive. There are 22 grandchildren and one great grandchild. The remains were interred in the Frankston cemetery, on Thursday, the funeral being largely attended. *** MR Fred V. Taylor, who is well and favorably known throughout this district has an extended advertisement in another column relating to his motor car agencies. Mr Taylor, who saw three years service at the front in the motor corps

and returned home badly wounded, knows the first and last thing about motor cars and his phone number should be in the hat band of every motorist. *** THE Rev E Tonkin conducted the Methodist services on Sunday last at Pearcedale in the morning and Somerville afternoon and evening. Mr J T. Twyford officiated at Pearcedale in the evening. The congregations were good, and the display of Harvest products in each instance was exceptionally fine. A notable feature at Pearcedale was a procession of girls each bearing a small sheaf, and singing “Bringing in the Sheaves”. At Somerville the choir rendered two anthems with splendid harmony and taste, Miss Vines singing the solo in the evening, and Mr Russell Denham presiding at the organ. *** TODAY Messrs Brody and Mason will offer for sale several very desirable freehold properties in the town of Frankston. The sale commences at 3.30 o’clock at the rooms of the auctioneer. *** MEMBERS of the Presbyterian denomination continue to work successfully in the direction of raising funds for the erection of a church in Frankston. And the more optimistic predict that the building will be an accomplished fact within the next twelve months. The splendid congregations at the services conducted by the Moderator last Sunday in the Mechanics’ Institute proved very cheering to those

who have the welfare of the church at heart, and at the same time emphasised the urgent need of a sacred edifice. At a recent congregational meeting held at “Osborne House”, authority was given for the payment of the land selected as a building site and the same meeting also nominated the following gentlemen to act as trustees: viz. Dr. McKeddie, Messrs H. Masterton, J. Martin, W. Taylor and W. Crawford Young. It is understood that when the land is properly vested in the trustees something definite will take place in the matter of proceeding with the church building. *** VERY large congregations. attended the Presbyterian church services on Sunday last when the pulpit was occupied both morning and evening by the Rev. D. Macrae Stewart, the Moderator of the Presbyterian Church of Victoria. In the forenoon the orthodox service was held, but at night there was an innovation, when the preacher dispensed with a sermon and delivered instead a stirring address on his experiences with the A.I.F. abroad. As senior chaplain of the forces the reverend gentleman saw service in Egypt, Galipoli and France, and from the rich store of his memories he draws word pictures both vivid and thrilling and not untouched by pathos. Under his cultured and sympathetic treatment the light and shade effects of his stories proved wonderfully impressive. There was no mistaking the fact that in the Moderator the “diggers” posses

a stalwart and courageous champion, and one who will ever hold dear the associations connected with his office as padre. During the service Mrs Carroll, of Baxter, sang very effectively, the solo “Oh Love that wilt not lot me go”, Miss Cowan presiding at the organ. *** EVER since its creation the Country Roads Board has been deluged with requests from municipalities to “take over” certain roads within their boundaries. On Wednesday a deputation to the Minister of Public Works from the Municipal Association touched lightly on the subject. The Minister emphatically assured those present that the board would do no such thing as take over roads. He had in mind a resolution passed in Bendigo recently urging the extension of the board’s usefulness in the direction of including certain roads in its programme. “Wait until a deputation with that object sees me”, he significantly remarked. “There will be a real heart-to-heart talk and some illuminating things said.” *** SEAFORD Progress Association. The monthly meeting will be held tonight (Saturday) to receive report of deputation re building by-law to advocate the inclusion of Carrum Vale Road under the Country Roads Board Scheme and other business. *** We are requested to state that owing to the influenza epidemic the Welcome Social to Returned Soldiers at

Frankston has been postponed indefinitely. *** TWO brass bands visited Frankston last week end. The members of the Essendon Town Band engaged the locals in a cricket match on Saturday afternoon and undeterred by their defeat made the town resound with melody in the evening and on Sunday. The Spansley Street Clifton Hill Methodist brass band played several sacred selections in the Park on Sunday afternoon and at night, some of the members assisted at the service in the Methodist church. *** THE opening night of the Returned Soldiers euchre tournament eventuated on Thursday, and proved a great success. Miss Winnie Rodgers won the ladies prize, which consisted of a case of silver spoons, presented by Mrs Hogan, while the gents trophy, a neat tobacco pouch, donated by Mr C. Wood, was annexed by Mr Norton. After cards, dancing was indulged in to music supplied by Mr Brieley. The duties of M.C. were carried out by Mr Paxton. Refreshments were provided during the evening. Mr R. H. Thompson, the secretary, in thanking all who assisted, and particularly the “Wattle” Club for the use of tables, announced that the parties would be held every week in aid of the Soldiers Memorial Hall Fund, Frankston. *** FROM the pages of the Mornington Standard, 29 March 1919

THE MEANING OF EXISTENCE... AND OTHER SHORT STORIES

From Rushworth to Eternity – the Art of the Memoir By Stuart McCullough IT was years in the making. But after a tonne of effort my father finally completed his memoir: ‘Stand Back – Let the Dog See the Rabbit’. Cleverly, he’s left plenty of room for a sequel, as it only covers the period up to 1964. This is before I or my siblings had even been thought of, much less born. As my brother pointed out, presumably our father decided it was all down hill after that point. Bringing Pete’s memoir into existence was a team effort - one that involved a lot of people and an extraordinarily high rate of attrition. This is attributable to my father’s preferred mode of written communication: unintelligible scribble. My father’s handwriting looks as though a slug has been dipped in ink before setting it free on the page. Technically speaking, it’s cursive script – a description not of the handwriting itself but the reaction of anyone foolish enough to try to read it. I volunteered to try and decipher my father’s handwriting but it was a task that got the better of me. When, finally, the book was ready for publication it still needed a title. It was my sister, Beck, who suggested, ‘Stand Back – Let the Dog See the Rabbit’ as it was something our father often said when we were growing up and made even less sense then than it does now. Other family members had similar ideas, each suggesting phrases used regularly through our childhood years. Ultimately, however, it was decided that the world was not yet ready for a book called ‘Bugger it’ or ‘Life Gets Tedious’ even if these expressions had been occasionally used. Perhaps

for future installments. Pete’s memoir has thirteen chapters in all. The chapters are divided into subjects including family history, each incremental step of the educational experience starting with preschool all the way to University, his home town of Rushworth and life as a young teacher. Each chapter is stuffed full of pictures. Some are beautiful. Some are blurry. And some are so abstract that their relevance is hard to determine. The book contains many stories with which I was already familiar. This includes the spell my father spent in England as a young teacher when, in 1964, he was asked by one of the students whether he’d ever heard of a group called ‘The Beatles’. His reply of, ‘We would never tolerate that kind of rubbish in Australia’ is one that has lived in infamy ever since John, Paul, George and Ringo toured the country later that year and were greeted like heroes. Which, of course, they were. There’s also the story of the snakeskin. The short version is that my father was out playing in the bush near Rushworth when he came across a snake skin. It was quite a specimen and my father immediately rushed back to the family newsagency, storing it under the counter. There it was discovered by his mother who concluded that the snake proper was probably somewhere in the shop which would need to be evacuated. But there are plenty of things I didn’t know. For example, my grandfather made a point of reading all the novels of Charles Dickens. I had done the exact same thing decades

later, oblivious to fact it was family interest. He also had a life-long aversion to eating rice which is not something many people can say, but can be attributed to his daily diet of rice and prunes while a young soldier in Mesopotimia. He also thought that rhubarb was only good for cleaning saucepans. Which makes my father’s passion for the stuff even more perplexing. As with any memoir, there’s the question of ‘how much detail is too much detail?’ Suffice to say, while I was as surprised as anyone to learn that my father had the same locker in form one and form four, I’m not sure it’s information I particularly needed. The section on the perils of outdoor toilets (aka the dunny)might be of interest to those who have chosen to study the field, but for anybody else might be considered surplus to requirements. And then there’s the matter of his hometown. Although he still loves the place, I would have to say that, at times, he’s a little harsh on Rushworth and its inhabitants. It is perhaps for the best that the memoir is the subject of a modest print run. What I liked most about my father’s memoir is not what I learned but what I heard. On every page, I can hear his voice. In quiet moments, I can hear him deliver the punch line to a story with a garrulous laugh. I can see him leaning back and his eyes tighten as he does so. It took a long time to complete, but I’m genuinely glad he persevered. Bring on volume two. stuart@stuartmccullough.com

At that point I decided to go out and give it a go, started working out of the shed at home, and then in about 2009 it was our first stage of manufacturing,” said Chris, of the opening of their firs factory. “Within the first two years we had to get a bigger factory and started to focus on a key group of products relating just to external applications.” These days, Undercover Blinds are the experts in ‘customised works’ within the blind and awnings industry with over 120 years combined experience within the blinds and awnings industry. “Many competitors regularly use our service for shade solutions and advice for their own projects,” said Chris. “If you are looking for a quality solution to your outdoor shade project, we can help. We offer expert advice, custom

design and installation, high quality materials, and all types of shade systems.” At Undercover Blinds, the expert advice comes from years of experience in the industry. The team can cater for any special requirements in any style of shade system, and they only use materials that look great and will last well in the harsh Australian sun. Undercover Blinds specialise in folding arm awnings, drop arm awnings outdoor patio blinds, internal roller blinds, retractable roof systems, roof blinds, sun blinds, canopies, plantation shutters, and carb-o-lite. “If you have a special application that needs a custom solution not covered in the above list, give us a ring as over the years we have been involved in many unique projects,” said Chris. “Our long experience in the industry is your assurance we can give your outdoor blinds or awning project a great result.” Undercover Blinds is at Factory 21/61 Frankston Gardens Drive, Carrum Downs.

Battered flake: Langwarrin claimed victory in the MPCA Provinical Grand Final on Sunday, chasing down Sorrento Sharks at Alexandra Park. Picture: Andrew Hurst

Heatherhill heap misery on Rosebud By Brodie Cowburn

PENINSULA

BADEN Powell are champions of the Peninsula division of MPCA cricket after defeating Main Ridge at Pearcedale Rec Reserve last weekend. On day one Main Ridge chose to bat first, and would have done very poorly if not for some brilliant individual performances from two batsmen. A spectacular innings of 94 runs from Daniel Polson was vital for his side. Another well taken 62 from Shaun Foster also looked as if it would be a huge help. Main Ridge ended up at 9/204 at the end of play on day one. Play restarted on Sunday for day two and Main Ridge ended up all out for 216. In response Baden Powell got off to a dream start, and at 2/122 victory looked a foregone conclusion.

PAGE 18

Wickets started to fall but a brilliant innings of 73 not out from middle order batsman Rhys Elmi helped Baden Powell reach their target and secure the Grand Final win.

DISTRICT

VICTORY tasted sweet for Heatherhill in their District grand final, as they dominated Rosebud in emphatic fashion. Rosebud won the toss and chose to bat first on day one, and found themselves thoroughly embarrassed. Left rattled at 4/7, Rosebud looked to have their backs against the walls right from the get go. A steadying innings of 49 from Pete Doughty proved the only light for a dark Rosebud day. He scored 49 runs as his side was dismissed for a small total of 103. Jake Theobald ran rampant with ball

in hand for Heatherhill, taking 6/33 in a dominant display. The following day Heatherhill got to work in chasing down their target and gettin their hands on the trophy. Number three batsman Kristian Miller put it beyond doubt with an innings of 64 not out, as Heatherhill claimed the win with 8 wickets and 27 overs to spare.

SUB DISTRICT

KIERRAN Voelkl put together a match winning innings for Dromana in their Sub District grand final last weekend, scoring 82 runs on day one to set his side up for a brilliant victory. Taking on Tootgarook at BA Cairns Reserve, Dromana batted first on day one. Both openers made starts but once Voelkl came in at number three, their innings really got going. He smashed

12 boundaries, including two sixes on his way to a final total of 82. He was eventually caught for LBW. After 77 over Dromana ended up all out for 166, giving Tootgarook a chance of getting the win when play restarted on Sunday. In reply Tootagrook were poor. They ended up all out for 122 as Dromana claimed the title of champions. Zacc Klan was pick of the bowlers for the victorious Dromana, taking 3/24 off 12 overs.

PROVINCIAL

LANGWARRIN sung their song loud and proud after securing a grand final win in a tight clash with Sorrento. Batting first on day one, Sorrento put together a decent innings and ended up at 9/220. Leigh Poholke was pick of the batsmen for the Sharks, putting 65 runs on

the board before his stumps were sent rattling by Travis Campbell. Matt Prosser took four wickets for Langy, helping set his side up for an achievable run chase. Langwarrin started day two positively, before losing two wickets in quick succession. Matt Prosser proved his ability with bat in hand as well, as he scored 68 runs. Langwarrin’s unbeaten start of 69 runs came to a quick end, as Sorrento looked to put the pressure back on. Any chance of a victory for Sorrento was scuppered by a good Travis Campbell innings batting at number five. He scored 48 not out to guide his side to a brilliant win that will be long remembered. The grand final win sees the Kangaroos go back to back.

Council leaves Southern seething SOCCER

By Craig MacKenzie FRANKSTON council re-turfed Monterey Reserve on Friday and the work was so extensive that Southern United was forced to call-off five matches scheduled for the venue on Saturday. The local women’s club plays at the elite level of the sport in Victoria and president Shannon Palmer was furious that no-one from council contacted her to tell her what was planned. “It’s a complete and utter debacle for us,” Palmer said on Sunday. “I don’t know why they didn’t contact us and tell us what they’d planned. “They contacted (co-tenant) Frankston Pines but they didn’t say what day they were going to do it and they didn’t say they were going to re-turf large sections of the pitch.” Southern was forced to cancel its under-12, under-14, under-16, under-19 and senior matches. “This has had a huge impact on our club,” Palmer added. “We’ve lost all the takings from the day and we now have to play all the matches on consecutive Wednesdays at either Knox (Regional Football Centre) or Darebin. “I sent council an email on Friday after seeing the state of the ground but they haven’t responded and I’ll be speaking to them first thing Monday morning.” Pines are due to kick off their league campaign on Saturday at Monterey Reserve and president Steve Spencer plans to contact council to make certain they know of the club’s needs. “When I saw what had been done I was shocked because there was about an inch and a half gap between the existing pitch and the new turf and it didn’t look to me as if it had been properly bedded in,” Spencer said. “We won’t be able to train on it that’s for sure but we need it to be ready for Saturday.” In NPL2 East news Langwarrin lost its second match of the league campaign when it went down 2-0 to St Albans Saints at Lawton Park on Saturday. St Albans took the lead in the 32nd minute when Langwarrin’s defence couldn’t deal with a long throw-in and Michael Grgic’s shot was blocked but the rebound fell to Adam Hodor on the right of the area and he drilled a low drive past keeper Fraser Maclaren. Right on half-time Joseph Monek blew a great chance to make it 2-0 when he shot wide with just Maclaren to beat. St Albans went 2-0 up in the 57th minute when midfielder Dominic Falla won possession just inside the attacking third and waltzed through a paper-thin Langy defence before slamming the ball past

Maclaren to seal the issue. Langwarrin’s under-20s recorded a 1-0 victory after a week of upheaval sparked by the resignation of head coach Paul Truman following the previous round’s 6-0 hammering from Springvale White Eagles. Doug Hodgson and previous assistant Ben Caffrey are in charge and the under20s program will now come under the control of club technical director Stephen Fisher. Truman was appointed last October and his tenure lasted five league matches. In State 1 news Mornington went down 1-0 at home to Malvern City on Saturday night. The local side was without off-season recruits Andy Mclean and Ross Clark who had carryover suspensions while Sam Scott was injured. The match was just two minutes old when Charlie Parker bundled over Arthur Papadopoulos inside the area leaving referee Manny Haractsis little choice but to point to the spot. Papadopoulos took the conversion attempt but his poorly struck effort was easily saved by Mornington keeper Taylor Davidson. Michael Papanicolaou should have put Malvern ahead with a free header in the 10th minute but Davidson saved again. Mornington’s best chance of the half fell to Sam Catherine who got free on the left of the area only to strike a low shot across Malvern keeper Satoshi Osugi and barely wide of the far post. The home side struggled to contain

the pace and surging runs of Malvern right back Daniel Bowman but the decisive moment came via Bowman’s vision and distribution. In the 80th minute he sent a precise diagonal pass from the right to Papadopoulos just outside the area on the left and he took one touch to control the ball and with his second dinked it neatly over the advancing Davidson for the match winner. It was a moment of quality that broke the hearts of the home fans. Bowman’s display caught the attention of many onlookers including NPL coaching staff and Malvern will do well to retain him for the remainder of the season. In State 2 news Peninsula Strikers defeated Old Scotch 2-0 at Centenary Park last weekend. Central defender Michael Hoogendyk and midfielder Danny Brooks were suspended while midfielder Bosco Abbasmoi has had to go overseas due to a family tragedy and is not due back until early May. Strikers were active in the transfer market late last week signing midfielder Jonny Guthrie from Langwarrin, striker Antun Velic from Mazenod Victory and midfielder Jullet Martin from Morwell Pegasus. Martin was in the starting line-up while Guthrie and Velic came off the bench in the second half. This was a dour contest that was often difficult to watch but Velic was free at the back post in the 63rd minute and headed back across goal where Adam Crabb slid in and scored from close

range. Alpha Turay’s late goal put Old Scotch out of its misery. In State 4 news Baxter lost 5-2 at home to Chelsea while Seaford United went down 4-1 away to Dandenong South. Harry McCartney reports that Dandenong South went 1-0 up after just two minutes when Hakan Yildiz broke clear and sidefooted the ball past Seaford keeper Anthony Madafferi. In the 17th minute Ibraim Ibraimi was at the back post and his shot made it 2-0 and seven minutes later Ibraimi’s freekick from just inside the attacking half was completely misjudged by Madafferi and sailed into the back of the net to make it 3-0. That was the half-time score but Seaford had plenty of the ball in the first period with new recruit Luke Murray and Matthias and Jeremy Schwellinger all going close while Conor Mcfall hit the woodwork. Two minutes into the second half Yildiz scored again and Seaford’s consolation goal came in the 84th minute via a clinical finish from Murray. Late in the match a melee erupted and Dion Brown was the only player sent off despite a number of flailing fists and feet. Meanwhile Rosebud announced its arrival in State 5 South with a thumping 5-1 win away to Bunyip District last weekend. Bunyip took the lead in the 2nd minute thanks to Andrew Yeo but Chris Parry equalised in the 35th minute. Rumour was rife that a row in the Bu-

nyip dressing room at half-time led to the substitution of striker Daniel DiVito and Rosebud ran away with the contest in the second half with goals from Blake Hicks (2), Parry and substitute Liam Edwards. Somerville Eagles started their title tilt in style with a 2-1 away win over Endeavour Hills Fire on Saturday. The Eagles featured five new signings in the starting line-up – Carlo Cardoso, Daniel Hodge, Callum Richardson, Mark Pagliarulo and captain Charlie Conrath. The visitors came close on several occasions but right on half-time great hold-up play from Hodge then saw Pagliarulo roll his man and smash the ball into the roof of the net from a tight angle to make it 1-0. The Eagles kept their opponent at arm’s length in the second half before extending the lead in the 60th minute when Pagliarulo turned his man inside out before crossing the ball to Richardson who bundled home his first competitive goal for his new club. In the 88th minute Endeavour captain Johnny Negassi curled home a brilliant free-kick but the Eagles comfortably held on for a deserved win. Injured Somerville co-coach Dave Greening was delighted with the opening day win. “We had a game plan to nullify their strengths and expose their weaknesses and the boys carried it out to a tee,” he said. State 5 rivals Aspendale Stingrays lost 2-1 away to Old Mentonians on Saturday. The visitors led at half-time thanks to a Peter Dimopoulos goal but Old Mentonians scored twice in the second half through Bannesh Krishnan (61st minute) and Chris Gibson (65th) to take all three points. Aspendale’s best were Brandon De Baize, Kieran Hughes and Jack Lindsay. This weekend’s league games: SATURDAY, 3pm: Langwarrin v Box Hill Utd (Lawton Park), Calder Utd v Southern Utd (Keilor Park Recreation Reserve), Doveton v Mornington (Waratah Reserve), Peninsula Strikers v Berwick City (Centenary Park), Frankston Pines v Bayside Argonauts (Monterey Reserve), Baxter v Dandenong South (Baxter Park), Seaford Utd v Rowville Eagles (North Seaford Reserve), Rosebud v Tullamarine (Olympic Park), Somerville Eagles v Knox Utd (Tyabb Central Recreation Reserve), Pakenham Utd v Aspendale Stingrays (IYU Recreation Reserve).
