Bypass ‘blues’ must be avoided Neil Walker neil@baysidenews.com.au PROTECTING the environment around the planned Mordialloc Bypass and ensuring nearby residents are not impacted should be top priorities when building the new road, according to Kingston Council. Councillors at the latest public council meeting on 25 September voted to “work collaboratively” with VicRoads to ensure wetlands, including the Seaford-Edithvale Wetlands, and public open space including

Braeside Park is protected. “I think if it’s done properly we can minimise any impacts on the community, particularly by ensuring acoustic wall treatments and maintain and enhance access into Dingley Village,” Cr Steve Staikos said at the meeting. The Labor state government announced in May that the long-flagged nine-kilometre Mordialloc Bypass to be built between Springvale Rd in Aspendale Gardens and the Dingley Bypass in Clayton South would be budgeted for in the 2017-18 state budget. The $300 million bypass will link

to the Mornington Peninsula Freeway in a bid to ease traffic congestion. “The government has made the decision to build the road and basically all that council can do is try to mitigate the damage,” Cr Rosemary West said. Cr West said VicRoads “is doing a good job of briefing community groups” such as the Friends of Braeside Park but she called on VicRoads to host open public information sessions for Dingley Village, Waterways and Aspendale Gardens residents. Councillors also voted to advise

Cnr Springvale Rd & Wells Rd, Chelsea Heights PH: 9773 4453 www.chelseaheightshotel.com.au

VicRoads council does not support the closure of Old Dandenong Rd, between Boundary Rd and Tootal Rd. A majority of councillors voted to ask VicRoads to build a flyover at Governor Rd as part of the bypass project. Cr Tamsin Bearsley said a lot of residents say a bypass at Mordialloc “is fantastic” but “congestion at Governor Rd will increase so we really need this flyover”. State Planning Minister Richard Wynne announced late last month that a full Environment Effects Study

report will be conducted to investigate any impact on nearby wetlands when the Mordialloc Bypass is built. The Residents Against Mordialloc Freeway has called on the state government to drop plans to build the bypass and focus on constructing a Westall Rd extension to link Eastlink and the Dandenong Bypass with extra lanes along Springvale Rd. n Feedback on the proposed Mordialloc Bypass can be submitted at engage.vicroads.vic.gov.au/mordiallocbypass or by calling VicRoads on 13 11 71.

Toilet trouble: Kingston councillors have not yet decided whether a mosaic painted toilet block should be demolished. Picture: Gary Sissons

Loo-sing artwork a tough decision A PROTRACTED discussion, dubbed “the dunny debate”, about demolishing a public toilet building in Mentone has failed to flush out a decision at Kingston Council. Councillors at the 25 September public council meeting decided to defer a vote for the fourth time on heeding council officers’ advice to tear down a public loo, erected in 1985, at Mentone’s Granary Lane. A council officers’ report tabled at the meeting recommended a new Mettros unit toilet be installed in the old building’s place but some councillors argued mosaic artwork on the existing building’s outer walls should be saved. Cr Rosemary West said she believed the building has heritage value “as a public art piece”. “I know that the mosaic artwork at the toilet is highly valued by local Mentone people,” she said at the meeting.

“We don’t have that much artwork around there and I think it’s worth keeping this one.” Cr Ron Brownlees said he reckoned “the dunny debate” needed to be resolved one way or another and argued public convenience in the form of new toilet facilities is paramount. “We’re talking about retaining a building that has no significant historical value,” he said. “The artwork was only put on the building in 2001 by a volunteer community group of young unemployed people.” “I value what they’ve done. I look at it, I’ve been in the building once, I won’t go in there again. Neither will half of the community. “What we’re saving is a dumpy old rundown dunny building which needs to be fixed up anyway.” Most councillors voted to defer a deci-

sion on demolishing the dunny since it will take more than spending a penny to keep the building intact, according to the council officers’ report. It may cost about $50,000 to keep the empty building with the mosaic artwork and about $140,000 to convert the toilet block into an art-adorned open-roofed shelter. Council officers will clarify the costs to ratepayers for each option as early as this month and will also look at any extra money needed to have any new toilet block facing west, as suggested by Cr West, instead of north towards Florence St as planned. Kingston mayor Cr David Eden hoped councillors will decide whether to demolish or retain the Granary Lane loo soon. “The way we’re going we’ll be debating this after the next council election,” he said.

Husband, wife ‘assaulted’ Stephen Taylor steve@baysidenews.com.au PATTERSON Lakes resident Steven Taylor is appealing for witnesses after alleging he and his wife were assaulted by a Fisheries Victoria officer when they returned to the Olivers Hill, Frankston boat ramp on Friday 22 September. Mr Taylor said the “entirely unexpected” alleged assault occurred after they returned from a boat ride to Mornington. The alleged assault with fists, baton and capsicum spray left him with broken front teeth and facial and bodily bruising, while his wife received severe facial bruising after being “stomped on three times”. Acting Senior Sergeant Patrick Hayes, of Frankston police, said later: “I can confirm our attendance at an incident on Friday 22 September at the Frankston jetty. “This matter is currently being investigated and the details of all parties were obtained at the scene.” The Victorian Fisheries Authority confirmed an “altercation” occurred but would not elaborate. “On Friday 22 September at around 2.25pm, two fisheries officers attempted to conduct an inspection of two people at Olivers Hill boat ramp in Frankston resulting in an altercation,” the VFA said in a statement.  “Victoria Police are investigating the incident and, therefore, it is not appropriate to make any further comment.” 

‘Still trembling’: Shauna Martin and Steven Taylor show injuries from the alleged attack included severe bruising to her neck, arms, shoulder and elbow. Pictures: Supplied

Mr Taylor said there was “absolutely no reason [for the attack] considering we weren’t even fishing”. He said the two Fisheries officers in plain clothes asked, “How did you go?” when they approached him at the ramp. “I assumed they were just fishermen and replied ‘good’,” he said. “I told them we had gone for a cruise to

Mornington and back on a calm day. “[One of the men] then stated he was from Fisheries and asked for my identification. I complied with his request and showed [it] and replied that I didn’t need a fishing licence because I was not fishing. “He then said he and his partner would inspect my boat and car. I said, ‘Fine, go for it, there’s only

cheese and crackers and a few drinks in the esky’.” Mr Taylor said his boat had “no rods set up, no tackle box, no bait – no signs of any fishing whatsoever”. Tensions escalated after Mr Taylor got a “tad mouthy” and challenged the officer’s right to inspect his boating safety gear rather than his fishing gear. “He got offended by my reply and went to spray me with his capsicum spray,” he said. “I went to jump in the car and wind up the window when he hit me numerous times to the face and chest area [while] trying to grab the car keys. “I was being pounded, with blood everywhere, and lost my front teeth.” Mr Taylor’s wife Shauna Martin screamed at the other fisheries officer to stop the alleged attack. “She ran around to stop him [and] he punched her to ground and then stomped her head three times. “Eventually he stopped after his partner shouted: ‘Stop, stop, you’ll kill her’. “It’s a low act to assault anyone, let alone a defenceless woman and especially without any reason – regardless of a little lip. “He had no right to use violence.” Mr Taylor, who said he had previous criminal convictions, the “most recent 13 years ago”, confirmed he was seeking legal advice. He is urging witnesses to come forward – especially those who he thinks may have filmed the incident. “There were about 150 people in the car park that day,” he said.

Bus driver charged

GIPPSLAND

A MAN was arrested at Melbourne Airport on the weekend over the death of a Mordialloc man allegedly struck by a bus at the intersection of Centreway early last month. The 41-year-old Oakleigh man – the driver of the bus – was charged with dangerous driving causing death and careless driving following the incident, 4.40pm, Thursday 7 September, when a 67-year-old pedestrian was crossing Beach Rd. Sergeant Anthoula Moutis, of the Victoria Police Media Unit, said the man appeared at Melbourne Magistrates’ Court on Monday and was remanded to reappear at Melbourne Magistrates’ Court, Wednesday 4 October, for a filing hearing.

Body found at beach POLICE will prepare a report for the coroner after a man’s body was found on the beach at The Strand, Chelsea, Monday 2 October. Walkers spotted the body about 40 metres from the pier, 6.30am. Police who arrived on the scene were unable to resuscitate the man, whose death is not being treated as suspicious.

P-plater hauled in

A P-PLATER was spotted driving at 94kph in an 80kph zone on Frankston-Dandenong Rd, Carrum Downs, early morning, Sunday 24 September. Police discovered that his probationary licence had been suspended due to lost demerit points. The 27-year-old man, of Hampton Park, was also found to be driving a probationary prohibited vehicle and was in breach of his alcohol interlock condition. His car was impounded for 30 days at a cost of $950.

Pom-poms lead way on story trail LIFEVIEW Argyle Court residents are trying to break the Guinness World Record for the longest pom-pom garland or line of pom-poms in Australia. The Chelsea aged care home is flurry of wool and pom-pom making activity as residents attempt to make 7777 pom-poms, a number they believe will break the record. The current Guinness World Record for the longest garland or line of pom-poms in Australia is held by the Australian Country Spinners in the Victorian country town of Wangaratta. The record was achieved in August 2013 when they laid out 6,977 woollen hand-made pom-poms, which stretched 178.6 metres (585.9 feet). “We chose this activity and record to break

because pom-pom making is something that all residents can participate in, whilst working towards a common goal. We also wanted a group project that involved residents, staff, families and friends,” Argyle Court Residential manager Katy Cavanagh said. “The number 7777 was chosen as a target for a range of reasons including the view that seven is a lucky number, and residents believe they will need to make pom-poms seven days a week to reach their goal,” she said. The World Record attempt will take place on Friday 13 October and coincide with the home’s participation in the annual Longbeach Yarn Art Storybook Trail – where local community organisations decorate their gardens and buildings in a storybook theme using only yarn.

In the meantime the home is looking for anyone who is crafty to assist with making and donating pom-poms to the cause or donating balls of wool. Argyle Court is also holding Crafternoon Sessions on Sundays where crafty locals are invited to work with the residents on a number of art and craft projects, including pom-pom making, whilst enjoying a cuppa and a chat. If you would like to find out more about how you can be involved please contact Argyle Court directly on 8773 2300. The Yarn Art Storybook Trail organised by Longbeach PLACE is being held 9-31 October. See longbeachplace.org.au or call 9776 1386 for details.

Have say on ‘urban sprawl’ KINGSTON residents are invited to help shape the future of planning in Kingston through a series of councillor ward meetings this month. The interactive, professionally-facilitated group discussions will provide residents with the opportunity to contribute their views to council’s housing and neighbourhood character study, which will address the housing needs of Kingston for the next 20 years and beyond. Kingston mayor Cr David Eden said councillors called for the meetings to address the challenge of how to accommodate more people without losing the amenity of our neighbourhoods, with Melbourne’s population set to grow to nearly 8 million people by 2051. “Our city can’t keep sprawling outwards, so it’s imperative we address the challenge of density. These studies will help us to understand the challenge at hand in better detail,” Cr Eden said. “Kingston Council has long-campaigned to see population growth centred in key activity centres, close to public transport, shops and services, to protect the character and amenity of our neighbourhoods and quiet residential streets.” The neighbourhood character study will set out the types of development preferred in different parts of Kingston, including areas where minimal, incremental or substantial change may be appropriate. Council is also undertaking a car parking study and planning scheme review to help inform its decision making. Community members will be able to discuss key planning issues at the meetings, such as what they love about their streets or suburbs, what should be protected for the future, future housing needs, affordability, and the level of control that local councils have over planning. “Everyone is welcome to participate in the Councillor ward meetings, which will be held in each of Kingston’s North, Central and South wards,” Cr Eden said. “Our community’s input is crucial to the process, so we encourage everyone to come along and have their say.” n South ward meeting - Thursday 19 October, 6pm-8pm, LF Payne Hall (Chelsea Library) n North ward meeting - Tuesday 24 October, 6pm-8pm, Clarinda Community Centre n Central ward meeting - Thursday 26 October, 6pm-8pm, City of Kingston, Cheltenham office Residents are able to RSVP to the councillor ward meetings by calling 9581 4713 or by registering at kingston.vic.gov.au/wardmeetings online.

Time to go: The Edithvale Life Saving Club is set to be redesigned and rebuilt. Picture: Gary Sissons

Club house in coastal ‘dog house’ Neil Walker neil@baysidenews.com.au A REDESIGN of the Edithvale Life Saving Club has hit a snag after a state government department declared the proposed new clubhouse does not meet Coastal Management Act regulations. Mordialloc Labor MP Tim Richardson has asked the department to go back to the drawing board to work with Kingston Council to keep a $3.4 million plan to demolish the existing building and construct new premises on track. In state parliament last month, Mr Richardson formally asked Labor Energy, Environment and Climate Change Minister Lily D’Ambrosio “to direct the Department of Environment, Land, Water and Planning [DELWP] to closely work with the City of Kingston to broker a design and building solution to comply with the Coastal Management Act 1995

for Edithvale Life Saving Club”. “This is a fantastic lifesaving club in my electorate, and it will celebrate its centenary in 2019. It is a club that supports some of the 22,000 visitors that flock to Edithvale beach each and every summer. “It has a wonderful committee that is also dedicated to supporting our firstgeneration Australians, who in the case of some countries have been landlocked and have never seen water or the ocean. “They are supporting our migrant communities and our refugee communities to learn safety around beaches and around our waterways,” Mr Richardson said. “Recently we hit a bit of a hurdle with the current designs not complying with the Coastal Management Act and some of those plans needing to be redesigned. This is a disappointing setback but something on which we need to work to-

gether with the City of Kingston and the department to try to get the best solution, because we do not want this project held up unnecessarily. “It is a partnership with the state government, with $1.5 million from the Victorian government, and the City of Kingston, with a more than $1.9 million investment, so everyone wants to see this project go ahead.” At the 25 September public council meeting, Kingston Council CEO John Nevins indicated council is discussing a partial redesign of the Edithvale Life Saving Club with state government representatives. “The DELWP is required to assess each application on its merits. At present, discussions are continuing with [the] DELWP about the Edithvale Life Saving Club,” Mr Nevins said when answering a query during the public question time segment of the council meeting.

“Check out what’s on at Bunnings Mentone” SATURDAY 7TH OCTOBER 11AM – 2PM

KINGSTON detectives are investigating a spate of overnight thefts from parked cars last week. About $460 was stolen from the centre console of a Ford sedan parked in the driveway of a house in Morris St, Parkdale, overnight Friday 29 September. Police said the car was unlocked. A small amount of cash and personal items were stolen from a Jeep parked outside a house in Legana Ct, Patterson Lakes, overnight Tuesday 26 September, and a silver Giant-brand bike valued at $1000 was stolen from the garage of a house in Hazelwood Cl, Dingley, overnight Friday 22 September. Detective Sergeant Paul Toogood, of Kingston CIU, advises residents to park vehicles off the street, preferably in a driveway, garage or staff car park. If parking in the street find a well-lit area and do not leave any valuables in view, he advised. “What you think is worthless may entice a thief to break into your vehicle. If there is no other option, lock them in the boot, preferably before you get to your destination, or take them with you. “Do not leave your keys in the ignition; lock the car when paying for fuel, close all windows and lock up before leaving the car. “Another handy hint is to wipe away suction marks left by a GPS and don’t leave paperwork in the vehicle that can identify where you live: the thief could work out you are not at home. Personal information could also be used to steal your identity. Also, write your licence number on your key tag – not your personal ad-

dress or car’s registration number, and don’t hide spare car keys anywhere in the vehicle.”

Number plates a target THE theft of car number plates is causing concern to Kingston detectives, with five plates stolen from cars in the past week. Two number plates were stolen from a Holden Astra parked outside a house in Village Crescent, Chelsea, overnight Monday 25 September, and another pair were stolen from a Holden sedan parked outside a house in Bourke St, Mentone, overnight Wednesday 27 September. The front number plate was stolen from a Mazda sedan parked in the Parkdale station car park, Saturday 30 September. Detective Sergeant Paul Toogood, of Kingston CIU, said the number plates were used by criminals to put on other cars to commit further offences, such as the theft of petrol and burglaries. To help stop number plates being stolen, he urges motorists to replace their car’s screws with one-way screws which require a special tool to be removed. These screws are available from hardware and automotive stores. Neighbourhood Watch and community groups regularly organise Safe Plate Days at community locations where police and volunteers attend and put safe screws on each number plate in place of the original screws. Anyone with information on any of these incidents should call Crime Stoppers 1800 333 000.

I’m working hard to ensure that our community’s voice is heard. If I can be of assistance with any federal issue, don’t hesitate to contact me. I am happy to help.

Every picture tells a story: Annabelle Carver’s Cries of Frustration painting will be among exhibits at an exhibition at Frankston Arts Centre aimed at starting conversations about mental health. Picture: Yanni

Art paves road to recovery Neil Walker neil@baysidenews.com.au ART can heal old mental wounds. That’s the message of an exhibition called The Art of Recovery to be held at Frankston Arts Centre’s Cube 37 during Mental Health Week. The annual event, coordinated by not-for-profit mental health and disability support organisation Wellways, showcases the talents of artists affected by mental health issues. Annabelle Carver is one of the artists whose artwork Cries of Frustration will be on display from 8-14 October. Carver recently moved to the western suburbs, having lived in Seaford for most of her life. From the age of 14 until 22 when her family sought help for her anxiety and depression, Carver struggled to live a productive life. “Throughout my teenage years and early adulthood I was quite affected by that depression and anxiety,” she said. “I was introduced to meditation and artwork by a good friend who I actually used to go to school with. “What I found with doing artwork is it took me to that level of meditation without actually having to be in the mindfulness part of the meditative state. “Artwork allowed me to come in to the present moment and let it all out.” The 32-year-old said art therapy continues to work for her and she continues to paint, sketch or draw every day. “My canvas is my therapy. It gave me calm and solace that I never knew existed.” Wellways CEO Elizabeth Crowther said the

organisation is hosting art event nationally to encourage people to talk about their mental health experiences. “This exhibition in Frankston is a great way for people with lived experience or their carers and families to share their stories visually,” she said. “Art is a great medium for sharing stories and is also a recognised therapeutic model.” Carver said she is proud to be part of the exhibition to hopefully eradicate the stigma some people may feel about mental illness. She has a positive message for those struggling with the pain of depression and anxiety. “Follow your heart and do whatever makes you happy whether it’s cooking, dancing, singing, walking in the park, playing drums or music. “Whatever makes you happy continue to do that and if it brings you joy and happiness then everything else that you’re feeling will just basically fall by the wayside.” n The Art of Recovery exhibition is free to attend and runs from Thursday 5 October-Saturday 28 October at Cube 37, Frankston Arts Centre, 2537 Davey St, Frankston. Works can be viewed Tuesday to Friday, 9am5pm and on Saturdays, 9am-2pm. Visitors to Cube 37 can spend an evening with the artists at the Artist’s Soiree on Monday 9 October, 6-8pm. The evening will include refreshments and entertainment. Anyone interested in producing artwork or attending the Artist’s Soiree should call Wellways Frankston on 9784 6800. For crisis support and counselling call Lifeline on 13 11 14 or the suicide call back service on 1300 659 467.

Man breaks leg in scooter fall A SEAFORD man had a narrow escape when he inadvertently drove his mobility scooter off a Frankston train station platform and into the path of an oncoming train, 11.15am, Saturday 23 September. The 69-year-old was attempting to manoeuvre the scooter on Platform 2 when he ran over the edge and crashed to the ground. He suffered a severely broken left leg, police said. The Metro Trains driver saw the man fall and managed to stop the train, reportedly causing traffic delays at the Overton Rd level crossing. Ambulance, fire brigade and police attended the incident and the man was taken by ambulance to The Alfred hospital. Services between Frankston and Carrum resumed at 12.20pm after the mobility scooter was removed from the tracks. There were delays of up to an hour between Carrum and Frankston; two services had to be cancelled and 10 rescheduled. “This would have been a terrifying experience and our thoughts and concern are for our passen-

ger involved,” Metro Trains spokesperson Marcus Williams said.  “We’re grateful for the professionalism and care provided by our staff who responded immediately and assisted the emergency services when they arrived shortly after. “Although this type of incident is rare, we are always working to provide a safe and accessible network for everyone and partner with accessibility organisations. “We are currently investigating this incident. “ Mr Williams said Metro had established an accessibility reference group to provide advice and guidance to continuously improve the accessibility on the metropolitan rail network.  “Groups such as Vision Australia, Guide Dogs Victoria, Travellers Aid and Scope provide travel training through events such as Try Before You Ride seminars, which encourage customers to practice boarding and alighting trains safely,” he said.

Seniors Festival October 8 - 31

Sky’s not the limit for play That’s what LOTS Inc (Legends of the Skies Theatre) promises its audience at two special matinees at the National Australian Aviation Museum, Moorabbin as part of the Senior’s Festival this month. Patrons will not only be enlightened by short plays introducing some of Australia’s legendary aviation heroes, like Sir Lawrence Wackett of CAC fame, or Robin Miller (The Sugar Bird Lady) but they will also hear something of how the Royal Flying Doctor Service came into being. And there is mystery too... whatever did happen to a young pilot who flew out of Moorabbin Airport and was never seen again..? Producer Jim Williams and artistic director Maggie Morrison have been keen to recognise that involvement is always marvellous for our seniors, so not only can the audience sing along to original fun songs about aviation, but they can also help out with industrial percussion while hearing about how Fisherman’s Bend played a part in defending Australia during World War II. The audience will have a chance to speak to one of the dedicated museum restoration volunteers at interval, during which time is allowed for a quick look at the many Australian aviation displays in the museum while refreshments are served. The two matinees are on Tuesday 17 October and Wednesday 18 October at 12.30pm. Bookings are essential as seating is very limited. More information and ticket booking ($12 or $10 groups of 6 plus) can be obtained by ringing Justine on 8510 1903 / Maggie on 9580 2387 / Jim on 9584 5127.

Expert help for foot and leg pain

SENIORS!!

COME SEE A SPECIAL DAY-TIME PRODUCTION OF LEGENDS OF THE SKIES

Tuesday 17 & Wednesday 18 October, 12.30 to 2.15pm

AS we age, we start to pay more attention to the things that assist and detract from our physical activity and mobility. Our feet and legs are key to this. Musculoskeletal Podiatrist Dr. David Kavanagh from Foot & Leg Pain Clinics says: “Our feet, knees and hips are crucial to our mobility and as we age these structures can be the most troublesome to us, due to a lifetime of stress through use. But thanks to the latest advances in medical research and treatments we are now able to assist most concerns relating to these structures quite easily and very effectively, regardless of age. In most cases we can alleviate general joint and tissue pain and fatigue; improve mobility; assist balance and stability, decrease the risk of falls; slow the progression foot deformities such as bunions, hammer toes and claw toes; reduce or eradicate corns and calluses by addressing the underlying issues; and can even assist joint and tissue degeneration and conditions such as arthritis utilising the latest natural regenerative therapies like; Prolotherapy,

Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) and stem cell therapy.” Foot & Leg Pain Clinics are experts in assisting pain, injuries and degenerative issues for people of all ages, including seniors, without the need for surgery or medications. As one of Australia’s only purely musculoskeletal focused podiatric medicine practices they are leading the way in assisting lower limb pain, injury and degenerative conditions. They’ve successfully assisted thousands of people with foot, leg and hip issues, from professional athletes to the most senior of seniors. “Old age, is not a reason for putting up with foot and leg pain, there is nearly always something we can do to assist. The key is, finding and addressing the cause of the problem and not just treating the symptoms,” adds Dr Tim Kirwan from Foot & Leg Pain Clinics in Rosebud. If you have foot, ankle, knee, leg or hip pain, injuries or degenerative concerns Foot + Leg Pain Clinics have clinics in Rosebud, Mt Eliza and right across Melbourne. Call 1300 328 300.

HEALTHCARE PROFESSIONALS

Your Hearing Questions Answered Is it important for patients to see an audiologist if they think they may be having difficulties hearing? Yes, if you are starting to notice difficulties it’s important to have a full hearing test. We don’t just test which sounds you can hear, we also check how clearly you can understand speech, in quiet and in background noise. Some common indications that you may have a hearing loss are: Turning the TV up Frequently asking for repeats Not being able to hear properly on the telephone Difficulty in noisy situations such as restaurants Missing out on important parts of the conversation Often your partner or a close family member may be the first person to notice that you are having difficulty hearing. Is it true that a lot of patients don’t actually need hearing aids? Yes. Probably 25 percent of those that we see do choose to get hearing aids. Some people have a little bit of hearing loss that we just need to talk about, and continue to monitor. Are there steps people who aren’t ready for hearing aids can do to help combat hearing loss? Yes. Pick a seat in a restaurant where

you can see the faces of the people that you are taking to. This can make it easier to follow what they are saying. With the television, if you’re not ready for hearing aids, we can get a set of cordless headphones. These can be one of the best options for hearing the TV clearly. Are there ever very simple solutions to hearing loss? Yes. Sometimes a hearing loss can be caused by ear wax blocking the canal. If someone needs a hearing aid, should they always choose the most expensive, top-of-the-line model? Most people don’t need the most expensive hearing aids, fully loaded with all the bells and whistles. It really is patient specific. You don’t always need the absolute top-of theline hearing aid technology, if the features that you need are available in something less expensive. At Chelsea Hearing, we always offer you a range of options, and it is up to you to choose something that you are comfortable with. You should never feel pressured to proceed with hearing aids that you don’t feel ready for. Are smaller hearing aids more expensive? Generally, the style of the hearing aid does not have very much impact on the price. There are very good, small hearing aids available at all price points. Larger hearing aids are not necessarily less expensive either. The good news is

that the very small, comfortable hearing aids are suitable for most people these days. How much do hearing aids cost? Most people who are on a Centrelink pension (such as an age pension or a disability pension) are eligible for the Office of Hearing Services Voucher program. This enables them to choose from a range of hearing aids that are “free-to-client”. These hearing aids have improved significantly over the past few years, and a lot of people are pleasantly surprised at how natural they sound, and how small and comfortable they can be. Pensioners can also choose to contribute to more expensive hearing aids if they wish. For people who are not eligible for the voucher program, hearing aids typically start at $2,700 for a pair. What brand of hearing aids to you recommend? Chelsea Hearing is an independent clinic. We fit hearing aids from all of the major manufacturers. Our recommendations are made after we have tested your hearing, looked in your ears, and had a discussion about the things that you want to hear well. We also take the time to consider your preference for style and size of the hearing aids, as well as your budget. We will recommend the most appropriate hearing aids for you, and we will always give you a range of options to choose from.

What is your philosophy on health care? If I wouldn’t do it for my Mum or Dad, I don’t do it for a patient. When I’m making recommendations for a patient, I think “if this was my mum or dad, with this hearing loss, and these difficulties, would I be making the same recommendations?”. If the answer is “yes”, then I know I’m doing my best for a patient. What does the relationship you have with your patients mean to you? The patient comes first. The patient is your customer and you want to have the healthiest, happiest patient that you can. That makes me happy as well. To know that we are helping that patient to be happy is just rewarding. What is one thing about your job that really sticks out in a positive way? It’s really nice to be able to make a difference for people. Often the partner of the person with a hearing loss may have been repeating themselves and having to speak louder for years. When we help with a hearing loss (often with hearing aids) it’s often the family members who notice the benefit first. Suddenly they don’t have to repeat everything, and they don’t get so tired from speaking loudly all day. It can make a big difference for the whole family.

the right pace of the individual patient. Some people come in here, and they know they want to get hearing aids and they want to get it all happening as quickly as possible. Other people come in, and they are having some difficulties hearing, but they don’t know if they have a hearing loss. They may need a little bit more time to understand their hearing loss, and the options available. It doesn’t help anyone to push someone in to getting hearing aids before they are ready for them, or to pressure someone to purchase hearing aids that cost more than they are comfortable with. Sometimes the best thing to do is explain what’s causing the problem, and what solutions are available. It can also be helpful to bring your partner or a close family member to your appointment with you.

Do you have rules that you live by when treating patients? My number one rule is to take things at

Seniors Festival

Renewed energy and independence for double storey home owners JACK and Robin Helisma have been married 57 years and their story is full of love, laughter and changing fate. Sitting in their living room Jack and Robin tell it like it is. They know each other like they know the sun will rise over their lovely double-storied home where family life has been a constant. If only these walls could talk. Three children, extended family get togethers. Backyard parties in the pool and barbecues on the balcony. A home is much more than mere bricks and mortar. Why would they want to leave theirs? “My mother had a dream many years ago. An angel appeared and told her to leave Estonia just before Hitler shut down the borders. We travelled from the top of Europe to Italy where we got on a ship and sailed to Australia,” explains Jack. “Two small boys. All the way from Estonia to Australia as war broke out. You can’t imagine how hard that would have been.” Jack, now 81-year-old, walks with the aid of a cane. “There was no way I was going to be able to stay living here”.

This presented a problem. Neither Robin or Jack wanted to leave their family home or wellestablished connections. “We’ve lived here for 42 years and everything is so convenient,” said Robin. “The ResiLift has been a Godsend. I even put Jack’s meals in it sometimes and send them down when he’s in his den watching the news! We can still maintain our separate lives. I don’t want to sit with him all the time! He loves his space downstairs and his time alone. So do I. But more than that, we love having the choice. That wouldn’t have been possible without ResiLift.” After having the ResiLift installed, Jack found that he had more energy again and was even able to make another trip to Estonia, which we had previously considered to be out of the question.

Leaving your mark in the world with art MANY people are inspired by the number of historical and modern artworks that can be found at cemeteries and memorial parks, showcasing superb examples of craftsmanship, architectural and artistic styles, and botanical and landscape qualities. Dr Celestina Sagazio, Historian and Manager of Cultural Heritage at Southern Metropolitan Cemeteries Trust (SMCT), takes time out to explain the significance of art in cemeteries and describe two fine examples you can explore at Melbourne General Cemetery. “Cemeteries effectively reflect our values, customs, emotions and aspirations as individuals and as a society. This is why cemeteries can be appreciated as outdoor art galleries and museums replete with marble, granite, slate, iron and wooden creations. It’s not uncommon to see students of art and architecture among the monuments, where they find a huge number of stone sculptures such as angels, religious figures, and symbols such as draped urns, columns and obelisks. Such devices on monuments have long been created to commemorate our lives and leave our mark in the world in a creative and beautiful way. Outstanding examples of art are

found in cemeteries such as the iconic Melbourne General Cemetery. One such example is the substantial sculpture ‘Guardian Angel’, depicting St Michael the Archangel with his protective sword, on the grave of notable property owner Michael Dawson. It is one of the largest St Michael the Archangel sculptures in any cemetery in the world, making it easy to spot near it’s roadside position. It is not surprising to learn that this big sculpture has a big story attached to it. A fine sculptor of the period, Charles Summers, created ‘Guardian Angel’. The English-born Charles Summers was the most accomplished sculptor in Victoria by the 1860s. After a brilliant career in the Royal Academy schools, he migrated to Melbourne in 1852 for health reasons. He worked on the sculptural decoration in the new parliamentary chambers, and his masterpiece was the Burke and Wills statue installed in the city. According to Jennie Maggs, a direct descendant of Summers, the sculpture was one of his final works. Summers died in 1878 before the sculpture was installed. It was his son Charles Francis Summers, also a sculptor, who brought the large piece to Melbourne and erected it in the cemetery for the Dawson family in 1880.

Another fine sculpture in Melbourne General Cemetery is the metal weeping woman symbol, known as ‘Grief’, on the substantial grave of Sir Samuel Gillott. Gillott was a controversial lawyer and politician of the times, and Lord Mayor of Melbourne. He died in Sheffield, England after falling down the stairs at night and his body was returned to Melbourne for burial in the cemetery. ‘Grief’ was created by the renowned sculptor Charles Web Gilbert. The weeping woman was a common symbol in early cemeteries and was created in many different forms around the world. Any visit to the cemetery by art lovers should include an inspection of these two striking artworks, amongst others,” Dr Sagazio said. Inspired by the sound of art at cemeteries? Why not visit one of the eight cemeteries and memorial parks cared for by SMCT to discover more? From the historical Melbourne and Brighton General, St Kilda, Cheltenham and Springvale Botanical cemeteries to the more modern Bunurong and Cheltenham Memorial Parks, there’s lots to inspire your creative spirit.

100 YEARS AGO THIS WEEK...

Naval engineer survives two crashes in two days Compiled by Cameron McCullough MR R. Clark, engineer on one of the dredges at Naval Base, has the unique distinction of having experienced two motor cycle accidents on two successive days and not sustaining any serious injuries therefrom. On Saturday last, when travelling towards Frankston, at a fair pace, Mr Clark’s machine skidded and he was thrown heavily to the road injuring his left hand and head. On Sunday afternoon he resumed his journey to Melbourne, but his injured hand had swollen very much and Mr Clark found too late that it was powerless and he could not work the controls. The cycle dashed out of Mr Forster’s garage at high speed and struck the rockery in front of the Pier Hotel which effectively stopped the runaway. Mr Clark was thrown heavily. Mr Ryan, who was on duty in the vicinity, extricated the injured man and removed him to the Pier Hotel where it was found that the injuries were not serious. First aid was rendered by the Constable and Mr Clark is little worse for his double adventure. *** THE Hon. Treasurer of the Frankston and District Roll of Honor Fund gratefully acknowledges the receipt of £1 from Miss V. W. Mackay. The donation acknowledged last week was from Mr F. H. Wells, not H. G. Wells, as published. *** PARENTS and others interested in keeping up Flower Day on 2nd November at the Frankston State school are invited to a meeting to be held in the School Room on Monday evening

PAGE 16

next to make preliminary arrangements. *** A MEETING will be held in the Seaford Hall on Monday 8th October, at 8pm, to elect a committee to arrange details for a concert and dance to be held in aid of the Melbourne Hospital Funds. People of Seaford and district are most respectfully asked to attend. Mr C. H. Ellis is convening the meeting. *** ON Wednesday 10th Oct at 3.30pm Messrs Harrey and Hill will offer for sale by auction at Morton and Sons auction rooms Queens Walk, Swanston St Melbourne, a 40 acre orchard and farm being portion of Messrs Thornell’s well known Somerville Nursery with new 4 roomed house and out buildings. *** THE anniversary services in connection with the Methodist Sunday School were held on Sunday last when Mr. Austin a teacher from the Wesley College Melbourne preached both morning and evening to a large congregation. On Monday evening a concert and coffee supper took place. The Rev. Tonkin occupied the chair and there was a very large attendance. The following programme was gone through after which the distribution of prizes to the scholars took place. *** THE promotion of Captain Conder (OC Langwarrin Military Camp) to the rank of Major, was gazetted on the 4th inst. Major Conder, who was severely wounded at the historic landing at Gal-

lipoli, has made wonderful improvements at Langwarrin Camp and we are pleased to note that the military authorities have recognised his splendid administrative work by well deserved promotion. *** THE “Australian” Club, under the patronage of Sir John and Lady Madden, and by permission of the State War Council, will entertain 150 returned wounded soldiers this Saturday Oct 6th in Mechanics’ Hall Frankston at 3pm. All who are interested are cordially invited. Allieti’s String Band, will play selections during the afternoon, also in the evening when a dance will be held in aid of returned soldiers. *** THE Somerville Presbyterian Ladies’ Guild have now completed their work and have a large and beautiful assortment of drapery which will be at the sale of gifts now being held. The Fair was opened by Rev N. Webster on Friday evening at 3pm and will open this (Saturday), afternoon at 3.30pm. All other denomination and societies are invited to attend. Quoit and nail driving competitions, shooting gallery, hoopla and numerous other attractions. *** WE regret to announce that, as the result of a serious and painful accident, Mr .G. E. Rogers, ironmonger of Frankston, is now an inmate of St Pancras private hospital. On Wednesday 3rd. inst, Mr Rogers was, engaged lopping the branches from a pepper tree in his front garden and, as his step ladder was too short,

had placed it on a large box. Unfortunately the whole structure toppled over and Mr Rogers was precipitated to the ground. The force of the fall broke the ladder in half. Dr Maxwell announced that the bone of the right leg had been broken below the knee and a blood vessel had also been badly injured. Mr Rogers is making satisfactory progress, according to latest reports. *** A FEW beautiful, bright, warm days introduces the first glimpse of spring and snakes seem to be very numerous. Notwithstanding this great peril, the brightness makes one and all feel as they are glad to have lived through such a terrible winter to breathe once more the gladness of spring. The Moorooduc Progress Association held their monthly meeting Saturday night when a very happy little crowd assembled and the main business was the procuring of an Honor Board, for which ample funds are available and this matter was left in the hands of the secretary to have carried out. Another little business that was before the meeting was a request from the local school committee to try and have the evening mail from Mornington to Moorooduc reinstated, but this did not receive much support. After business was settled the gathering held a most enjoyable dance and, the crowning event of the evening was a bonza supper provided by the lady members. *** TRUE Unto Death. Y.M.C.A Man’s Admiration For Cursing Tender Hearted Australians.

Not alone the distribution of free coffee, cakes, and cigarettes is the work and influence of the Young Mens Christian Association among Our Australian boys at the front. This is indicated in a letter just received from Mr N.W.Opie, military Secretary of the Australian Y. M. C. A with our soldiers abroad. “I have referred in my report”, he says, “to the point of contact with the men that my cricket team has given me. I find the fellows always ready after their first shyness to talk of their homes and loved ones and since I have been here many scores of photos have been proudly displayed to me. “What do you think of my girl?” “Seen this picture of my kiddie, cobber?” “This is my mother” and the love of these chaps for their home folks is unashamedly shown. And what a wonderful point of contact one gets with them just there. Men receiving a home mail will bail one up in a corner of the hut and tell of such a happening to the wife or such and such a wonderful thing the Kiddie has done. “You remember I showed you her photo last week?” Of course one does not always remember but never acknowledges forgetfulness. Oh these fighting men and boys of our Sunny Australia, cursing blasphemous often but tender of heart true to a pal to death itself. How one comes to love them and pray for their wakening to the beauty and desirability of the Great White Friend. *** From the pages of the Mornington Standard, 6 October 1917


THE MEANING OF EXISTENCE... AND OTHER SHORT STORIES

How to Support the Richmond Fan In Your Life By Stuart McCullough FOR all intents and purposes, I’m agnostic when it comes to football. Having been born into a family of Essendon supporters, I was ostracized by my father when, at age ten, I switched to Carlton. To this day, he describes this as one of the greatest betrayals ever to occur outside of wartime. His reaction was such that I began to suspect that I’d greatly underestimated the impact of making a switch. Given the drama it caused, I kind of went quiet on the subject until, eventually, I didn’t really barrack for anyone. It remains an absolute conversation killer. When someone I don’t know very well asks me who I barrack for, rather than a full-throated declaration of allegiance all they get for their trouble is a gentle sigh as I stare off wistfully into the middle distance. I start to recount my tale of woe and sporting infidelity and, by the time I turn back, the person who asked me the question has wandered off, in search of someone else for whom the question ‘who do you barrack for?’ is less complicated. But despite my stunning lack of commitment, I am surrounded by zealots. The rest of my family has no trouble nailing their colours to the mast. Unsurprisingly, they’re mostly Essendon supporters. The indoctrination process started early – almost immediately upon being born, various grandchildren have been swaddled in team colours. Jumpers, beanies and duffel coats – you name it, all manner of paraphernalia has been showered upon these children long before they ever had a chance to make a decision

for themselves. I wouldn’t be surprised if the ‘Go Bombers’ were the first words some of them ever uttered. But in any family, there’s always someone who swims against the tide. Someone who is not for turning. In my family that person is my nephew, Noah. You see Noah is a Richmond supporter. More than that, Noah has always been a Richmond supporter, even in the face of almost every form

of pressure short of UN sanctions. Despite all attempts by his grandfather to lure him away from Tiger land, Noah has remained steadfast. His loyalty is unshakeable. To put that into some kind of context, Noah has two older brothers, both of whom support Essendon. And during Noah’s fourteen years on the planet, his older brothers have seen their team experience more success.

It’s hard for me to understand. Given that I was willing to change teams to make play lunch easier, I can’t imagine the kind of fortitude it takes to stick with something no matter what. Noah is quiet. Noah is reserved. Noah doesn’t ever really rock the boat. Except, of course, when it comes to Richmond. Over the years, I’ve seen him transform from mild-mannered nephew to someone who will raise his hands to the gods and scream ‘why, oh why?’ when Richmond has squandered a lead and lost a game. Watching football is, for my nephew, a whole of body experience. For many years, Noah has been going to the football with my father. I know that my father enjoys it very much. While our house has always had its fair share of football paraphernalia, it was Noah who took it to an entirely new level. Not satisfied with a scarf or jumper, Noah purchased himself a hat with Richmond dreadlocks. My father was horrified. But despite the reluctance he undoubtedly felt, the pair of them traipsed off to the MCG – my father with his travel bag with a thermos of sugary tea and packet of chocolate biscuits (the menu hasn’t changed in fifty years) and Noah with his dreadlocks. If he wasn’t wearing his heart on his sleeve, then he was undoubtedly wearing it on his head. This year, I’ve watched as Noah has dared to dream. Each week, the grin has gotten broader and bigger. For the first time in his lifetime, Noah’s beloved team has won a final. But fate can be cruel, and this year is the first year in ages that my father hasn’t secured reserved seats at the grand final.

I’m sure it’s the case with Richmond fans everywhere. Thirty-five years is a long time, albeit not quite long enough to forgive someone for changing football teams from Essendon to Carlton. I suspect it feels as though the rest of life is on hold for a little while. It was hard to know what to do to support my nephew. I’d occasionally throw a ‘Go Tigers’ into our conversations and smile and nod politely whenever he suddenly yelled ‘yellow and black!’ as the mood struck him. I knew is that it was going to be a formative experience for my nephew. One that will either give him either a sweet taste of victory or be the kind of lesson in resilience that, while unwelcome, is still probably healthy. But either way I admire his commitment and the way in which he’s willing to be entirely devoted to something. Allegiances aside, the entire family kicked into gear. A roster was drawn up in the hope of securing Noah a ticket. The queuing at the MCG started the night before with Noah’s older brother taking a position outside the ground. He came ill-prepared (as is often the case with 18-year-olds), dressed in only shorts and t-shirt, and was lucky enough to befriend others in the queue who lent him a blanket. Another shift arrived at 6am, and then at 8am, Noah secured himself a hallowed ticket. Of course, the Tigers won the day. Noah was tickled pink. My father even stayed to the end (which he hates doing as he always wants to ‘beat the queue for the train’). What else is there to say. Go Tigers. Go Noah. It was a well-deserved win. stuart@stuartmccullough.com

GET READY FOR THE BOOTLEG BEATLES Direct from London, THE BOOTLEG BEATLES, the world’s first and finest homage to the Fab Four will be performing at the Frankston Arts Centre on Sunday November 5. Now in their 37th year, THE BOOTLEG BEATLES have performed over 5,000 shows worldwide. Their stunning authenticity coupled with their musical credibility has seen them perform at some of the world’s best-known venues such as Wembley Stadium, the Royal Albert Hall, Knebworth, Glastonbury Festival and the Budokan Stadium in Tokyo, where The Beatles originally played. They also performed on “The Graham Norton Show” in London. The legendary English Record Producer/Arranger/Composer Sir George Martin, sometimes referred to as “the fifth Beatle”, said: “I enjoyed their act enormously”. Formed for the West End cast of the long-running Broadway musical “Beatlemania”, THE BOOTLEG BEATLES are truly the world’s No.1 tribute band have shared the Concert with the likes of Rod Stewart, Elton John, David Bowie, Iggy Pop, Seal, Simple Minds, Bon Jovi and they performed at Queen Elizabeth II’s Golden Jubilee celebration at Buckingham Palace. Noel and Liam Gallagher of Oasis asked them to be the support act for their record-breaking 1995 Earl’s Court Concerts, culminating with both bands sharing the stage for “I Am The Walrus”. THE BOOTLEG BEATLES re-create with precision the hits and image with costumes reflecting The Beatles’ evolution, as well as from note to note using original instruments and with uncannily accurate vocals. Against

a stunning video backdrop, they will be accompanied by a 9-piece orchestra, enabling them to faithfully re-create many of the songs The Beatles never played live on stage, such as “Eleanor Rigby”, “Penny Lane” and “All You Need Is Love”. THE BOOTLEG BEATLES are truly one of Britain’s most popular bands, with fans of all ages across the globe greeting their note-perfect performance with scenese of Beatle-like hysteria. The concert will feature renditions of the greatest songs from the entire Beatles catalogue. They faithfully re-create many of the hits the Beatles never performed live. Tickets available from Frankston Arts Centre. www.thefac.com.au or phone 9784 1051

CHELSEA MORDIALLOC MENTONE NEWS

New-look cricket launches this weekend By IT Gully THE new-look Mornington Peninsula Cricket Association season will launch this Saturday with four divisions set for 2017-18. The MPCA announced its new structure in May this year, however, a Presidents’ extraordinary meeting held a couple of weeks ago saw the names of the new four divisions changed. In May, the launched divisions were Premier, Provincial, District and Sub District. However, they were changed only last week to Provincial, Peninsula, District and Sub-District, in order of division one to division four. Peninsula Old Boys president Adam Jones was behind the name changes, which make sense. Jones branded the names of the new competition “stupid’’ and made moves to protect the history on the association. Jones wrote to the MPCA requesting the special general meeting which resulted in the name changes. He called 27 clubs, 25 of which supported his stance. In the 2017-18 season, cricket will be played on every weekend in October, November, December, January

and March; with the exception of two weeks in December for the Christmas break, as well as a weekend over Easter. Promotion-relegation will remain the same with the premiers being elevated in the following season and wooden-spooners dropping down. The major change to the competition is the number of one-day matches in the fixture. The first three rounds of the season are one-day fixtures and there are four more for the season. This is complemented with seven twoday matches. The grand finals will also be reduced to 80 overs to ensure the match is completed over one weekend. Bowlers will be restricted to eight overs in one-day games. The clubs in each division and some news coming into the first match of the day this Saturday: Provincial Peninsula Old Boys Crib Point Baxter Mornington Pearcedale Sorrento Langwarrin Mt Eliza

At Crib Point, Matt Blake is coaching the club and league legend Brad Glenn has taken the reigns as director of coaching. Sam Weisse has returned to Mornington from Frankston-Peninsula, while Langwarrin has seen the return of Andy Johnson and the recruitment of former Heatherhill and Flinders middle-order bat Simon Parrott. Pearcedale is looking at some improvement from talented youngsters Declan Scully and Riley Bradshaw, while Kaine Smith and Chris Dew remain in charge. Bobby Wilson remains in charge at Sorrento and they have landed Sri Lankan fast bowler and middle order bat Chathupama Gunasinghe (45 first class wickets). Lyle House and Justin Grant are in charge again at Mt Eliza and Baxter has a mate of Chamika Sattambi joining the club who will be a handy acquisition. Peninsula Red Hill Somerville Delacombe Park Flinders Long Island Moorooduc

Pines Main Ridge The recruitment of Jayde Herrick to Somerville is the biggest get in the offseason. Riley Shaw has returned from Mt Martha to Red Hill, which is a handy get, Ricky Ramsdale will be hoping to go one better with Delacombe Park, Aaron Paxton is the club skipper at Long Island and Adrian Mack returns to where it all began at Pines, replacing Craig Entwhistle. Nick Jewell will play and coach at Main Ridge and Shamith Kannangara is the skipper at Moorooduc, which will see a number of Sri Lankans land at the club this season. District Baden Powell Mt Martha Hastings Long Island Seaford Seaford Tigers Heatherhill Rosebud Rye Grant Hanrahan is senior coach at Mt Martha while Riley Shaw returns to Red Hill. Hastings will be without an injured

Luke Hewitt (knee reconstruction), Tommy Baron continues to lead Rye. Rosebud will welcome an opening quick from Sri Lanka and Seaford Tigers’ Corey Hand has returned to Carrum. Sub District Dromana Balnarring Carrum Carrum Downs Skye Tyabb Tootgarook YCW Ballam Park Boneo Jack Fowler and Keiran Voelkl will continue to run the show at Dromana.

Tyabb welcomes the return of Brodie Bennett, Ballam Park is looking for improvement from Luke Janssen and Boneo has picked up Corey Peterson from Traralgon, while an English keeper-batsman is expected to land soon.

AFLSE moves on stage one of footy restructure By Toe Punt AFL South East has succeeded in executing stage one of its grand plan for divisional football throughout the region, restructuring the Nepean and Peninsula competitions last Friday. As was predicted months ago, all 22 clubs were informed last Friday that Mornington Peninsula Nepean Football League divisions will be restructured in 2018. Chelsea, Karingal and Langwarrin drop from Peninsula to Division Two

and Frankston Bombers, Sorrento and Rosebud elevate from Nepean to Division One. In 2019, AFL South East plans to restructure again, introducing a third division, Premier, and bringing in South East Football Netball League clubs, which includes Cranbourne, Berwick, Beaconsfield and others. It is believed that all but five clubs (Edithvale-Aspendale, Langwarrin, Pines, Mornington, Tyabb) do not support a further restructure and will continue its fight against the move.

In determining which clubs should be selected to compete in Division 1, AFL South East Regional General Manager John Anderson said the following considerations were made: n Recent playing performances n Playing depth n Junior pathway including viability of U19’s and junior club pathways n Club facilities, and n The results of a recent survey conducted by MPNFL Clubs Regardless of the considerations, both Rosebud and Sorrento believe

they will struggle given the Buds have had no Under 17s for the past two seasons and Sorrento has had no Under 16s or 17s. However, there is little question that there is overwhelming support for divisional football between MPNFL clubs. The current salary cap of $150,000 will be applied to both divisions next season with the intention of re-evaluating and working towards a reduction in 2019. The total team points will be reset at 39 points with

further communication to clubs in coming weeks. Mr Anderson said that this announcement heralds an exciting new era for football in the region. “While I look forward to seeing the top 10 clubs competing against each other, I am even more keen to see clubs which have struggled in recent years get the opportunity to be more competitive and potentially participate in finals in 2018,” Mr Anderson said.

Grand Final glory for Southern United girls SOCCER

By Craig MacKenzie SOUTHERN United’s all-conquering under-13s capped a stellar season with a 2-0 Grand Final victory over Calder United at ABD Stadium in Meadow Heights on Sunday. Southern had clinched the NPLW championship some weeks earlier but had lost the qualifying final 1-0 to Calder. “We told the girls if we didn’t match them physically especially in the first five minutes that they would own us so we told them to go shoulder to shoulder and be very physical but don’t foul,” said Southern head coach Emma Bracken. “We wanted to show them that we weren’t going to get pushed off the ball.” Southern’s intent was clear from the outset and in the opening exchanges Southern right winger Danica Vukcevic made it clear that if anyone was going to be bundled off the ball it was her opponent. “I thought Danica was outstanding and I’m not just talking about her work on the ball but her desire, throwing her body in time and time again,” said assistant coach Aaron Myatt. Bracken and Myatt had decided to start Golden Boot winner Rhys McKenna on the left wing with usual winger Candy Kilderry playing in the central striker’s role. In the qualifying final Calder had double-teamed McKenna with a holding midfielder dropping deep but now it had to change its plans. To add to Calder’s unease the Southern pair were given licence to switch their roles without instruction from their coaches so that the Calder bench couldn’t hear and react immediately. McKenna forced Calder keeper Keara Califiore into a fine save low down at her near post in the 6th minute and in the 12th minute Kilderry bobbed up on the left but shot wide. Calder’s first main threat came in the 23rd minute when striker Olivia De La Plaza-Sanchez burst clear inside the area but Southern central defender Alex Jones intercepted superbly. Bracken and Myatt swung the second part of their plan into action at half-time switching Taylah Hennekam into central midfield as they had done to good effect in the preliminary final against Bayside United the previous week. Talia Palmer came on at left back, Emily Ryan switched from left to right back and Ezel Duyar linked with

Grand feeling: Southern United under-13s, 2017 champions and premiers. Picture: Darryl Kennedy Jones in central defence. The breakthrough came five minutes into the second half when a McKenna corner was played back to her by Alessandra Davis at the near post and McKenna’s second cross was headed home by Hennekam after Califiore couldn’t stop the ball from wriggling out of her grasp and crossing the line. Calder had a mountain to climb in the 42nd minute after a Hennekam shot was blocked and fell to Kilderry who hammered a left-foot strike high into the net to make it 2-0. By now the champions were in full flight and a sweeping move in the 47th minute involving Davis, McKenna and Kilderry deserved a better ending but McKenna couldn’t control Kilderry’s cross from the left. In the final analysis Southern established its credentials as the best under-13 side in the elite competition in emphatic fashion. “I thought the defence was unbelievable and Caddy (Vakacavu) had a great game in goal,” said Bracken. “She struggled in the first half of the season with coming off her line but it just seems to have clicked with her in the last few weeks and she has the tools to go further.” In other news recently appointed Langwarrin technical director Ste-

appointment of Doug Hodgson as under-15s head coach. Hodgson played with Pines as a junior and his senior career was highlighted by his time at Heidelberg United and his professional career with Sheffield United, Plymouth Argyle, Burnley, Oldham Athletic and Northampton Town in England. His career ended prematurely when he suffered a serious neck injury at the age of 29 and he became the first Australian to coach professionally in England when he was appointed reserve team manager at Sheffield United. Hodgson holds a UEFA B coaching licence and recently coached Mornington’s under-14A side to the state title. “The NPL is a great opportunity for kids all over the peninsula to find a development pathway outside of community football and there are kids out there that will need to be challenged to see if they are capable of taking the next step forward,” said Hodgson. “That’s the part of the game I really enjoy – helping a kid to fulfil their dreams – and on a personal level I want to put something back into a game that has been very good to me.” One of two under-12 squads will be coached by Andy Duckett, who has had two seasons at Bentleigh Greens

phen Fisher has been a busy man as the club gears up for its first venture into NPL ranks. Fisher has been overseeing the interview process for a raft of coaching appointments and last week Frankston Pines assistant Kevin “Squizzy” Taylor was named coach of Langy’s under-20s, which will be the club’s reserves team squad. Taylor was one of five applicants for the position and is well known in local circles having played for Langwarrin, Mornington, Seaford United and Frankston Pines. He won two promotions as senior coach of Seaford and in 2015 he won the Under-20s championship with Bentleigh Greens in his first year as an NPL coach. Taylor holds an AFC B coaching licence and was the preferred choice of long-serving Langy senior coach Gus Macleod who will be in charge for the 20th straight season. Langy’s 2017 championship-winning reserves coach Ronnie Whitton has been appointed as an assistant to Macleod alongside Robert Mathieson (junior) while Robert Mathieson senior retains the team manager’s role. Chris Jones is goalkeeping coach and Peter Tuckett will again be the club’s fitness advisor. The club also announced the

while Langy continues to negotiate with a candidate for the second under-12 post. Gary Brisbane will be in charge of the under-13s and Don Delaney will be in charge of the under-14s. Delaney coached Springvale White Eagles’ under-13s to a third-placed finish this season. The under-16s senior coach is Michael van der Zvet who joins after three successful seasons as a junior coach at Bentleigh Greens. Meanwhile Paul Williams has been re-appointed senior coach at Frankston Pines with Lee Davies as an assistant and reserves coach. Pines’ presentation night will be held at its Monterey Reserve clubrooms on Saturday 7 October starting at 7.30pm. Irish goalkeeper Colin McCormack did the double at Peninsula Strikers winning the players’ player of the year award and the senior best and fairest. Hayden Taylor followed suit winning the reserves players’ player of the year award and the reserves best and fairest. Aiden McKenna was the senior rising star and Callum Mitchell was the reserves rising star. Strikers’ search for a senior coach has narrowed to a field of five and the club is expected to make an announcement later this week. Skye United defender John Andrinopoulos has won the players’ player of the year award with captain Mark O’Connor runner-up. The reserves players’ player of the year was Daniel Jones and Lawrence Komba was runner-up. Senior coach Billy Armour has been re-appointed for 2018 as has reserves coach Liam George. The club hopes to retain the services of Billy Rae as senior assistant. Skye will hold its senior presentation night on Saturday 28 October at Patterson Lakes Community Centre starting at 7pm. Skye also is running a summer skills program from Thursday 9 November to Tuesday 7 December and from Tuesday 16 January to Tuesday 6 February for boys and girls aged five to 16. Carlo Cardoso has won Rosebud Heart’s senior best and fairest award with Cory Osorio runner-up. Cardoso also won the players’ player of the year award with goalkeeper Sean Skelly runner-up. At the recent AGM Tracy Reilly became Heart’s first female president with Jason Symonds re-elected vicepresident.

‘World class athlete’ signs as lifesaving coach By Ben Triandafillou CURRENT World Iron Woman and Nutri Grain series champion, Harriet Brown, will join the Mornington Life Saving Club as their new Water Coach and Youth Mentor next month. After saying goodbye to the club’s previous coach, John Vains, the Mornington Life Saving Club has designed their next phase of their coaching structure to help their athletes continue to develop and have a mentor under which they can thrive. Mornington Life Saving Club Nipper captain Damian Brice said the club’s main focus is to encourage participation and having someone like Brown gives the Nippers someone to look up to. “We felt Harriet was the right fit for the Mornington Life Saving Club as she is not only a world class athlete and coach, but an enthusiastic motivator and the type of role model that will add enormous value to the lives of our children,” Brice said. “Harriet has a genuine interest in wanting to get to know all of our kids and make a real difference in how they train and help to deliver

on the outcomes they are aiming to achieve individually and as a group.” Following the appointment of Brown, the club has worked together to design a program that utilizes face to face sessions, a feedback and review package and a range of social initiatives that will provide their members with consistent opportunities to develop and interact. The club has also appointed Matt McConnell as Club Coach to assist Brown in executing the program. While Brown will design and oversee the program, McConnell will make sure it is executed on a weekly basis with the assistance of the club’s Age Manager team and their under16s and above instructors. Brice said that McConnell has been a long term and high respected Age Manager who has great knowledge on how to read the surf, so he’ll be perfect for the role. The first Nipper session for the season starts on Sunday 12 November, 10am at Mills Beach. For further details go to morningtonlsc.com.au. Picture: sls.com.au

Bay views: The view from Mornington Golf Club’s new par three which is ready for play on Saturday. Picture: Supplied

Golf club has the ‘most potential in Australia’ By Ben Triandafillou A FORMER Australian professional golfer regards the Mornington Golf Club as the “club with the most potential in Australia”. Mark Allen, who played competitively for 15 years, told the 1116 SEN listeners on Saturday 16 September that the club “has the potential to be something out of this world” with the right amount of funding. The Mornington Golf Club has seen an increase in memberships of nearly 30 per cent since 2015 and this Saturday 7 October they will take their

first step in reaching this “potential” when they open their new 150-metre par three. The land which was once covered in trees and overgrown plantation has taken 18 months to transform into an intriguing hole which now boasts views of the Port Phillip Bay and the city’s skyline. The development has cost less than $100,000 with most of the work being done in house by the club’s course superintendent, Kevin Toebelman, and his team of five full time staff as well as a group of retired members called “Dads Army” who continue to give

up their time each week to help out the club. Mornington Golf Club general manager, Craig Murdoch, said that with the hole receiving such rave reviews we are confident that it will be remembered by members and visitors as one of the best holes on the golf course. “The club is ecstatic about the hole and can’t wait to play it,” Murdoch said. The par three will not only be a major attraction at the club but will also work as a ‘spare hole’ allowing developments to continue on course while

golfers have an undisrupted play. This is just the first phase in the Mornington Golf Club’s master plan with stage two commencing soon. It will involve the relocation of the ninth and 18th greens along with a larger practice putting green and a new 10th tee. “Very exciting things are happening at Mornington Golf Club and with the improvements that have been made and are planning on being made, it really is becoming one of the most progressive clubs on the peninsula,” Murdoch said.

Strategy on grass in celebration of Seniors Week IN celebration of Seniors Week, the Mornington Croquet Club is holding an open day with games to watch and coaching sessions on Wednesday 11 October. Croquet is a fascinating game that offers the opportunity of joining in with other people, male and female, on an equal

footing. It is played all year. Golf croquet has gained huge popularity in recent years. It is a form of the game which allows the beginner to understand the form and basic rules in just a few games. It involves gentle exercise over flat lawns while at the same time requiring strategic thinking.

The club coaching team headed by Colin Martin encourages people to come to the venue at Civic Reserve Mornington. A croquet mallet will be available for each participant to be used on the day. Flat footwear is essential. To book a free session phone Lynn / Rob on 5975 1041. Chelsea Mordialloc Mentone News 4 October 2017
