Junior footy club gets finals axe Brodie Cowburn brodie@baysidenews.com.au THE Mordialloc Redbacks Junior Football Club’s under-13 side has been booted from the 2019 finals after an AFL South East investigation found them guilty of playing an overage player.

An AFL South East statement read that the team “knowingly” played an overage player using false names for four games during the season. The club, which plays in the Frankston and District Junior Football League, was found guilty of bringing the game into disrepute. In addition to having match points stripped, the

team’s manager has been suspended from holding any official role at the club for two years and the coach has been suspended from the club for one year. The club was fined $1000 for bringing the game into disrepute and $400 for playing an ineligible player. AFL South East general manager John Anderson said “this is a rare oc-

currence where a club has played outside the rules of the competition and has paid the penalty.” “This is a reminder to all clubs participating in community football that the integrity of the game is paramount and actions like this will not be tolerated,” he said. “We feel for the innocent parties in-

volved, such as players, parents and volunteers, who have been denied the chance of playing in this year’s finals series.” The sanctions were handed down after the club faced a disciplinary committee on 20 August. Mordialloc Redbacks JFC President Brendan Swifte declined to comment.

Hawks change Dingley plans Brodie Cowburn brodie@baysidenews.com.au CHANGES to plans for Hawthorn Football Club’s new Dingley home have been given a thumbs up by Kingston Council. Councillors voted at their 26 August meeting to put amendments to Hawthorn Football Club’s Dingley plans to the planning minister. Those amendments will then be exhibited, and a further report will be received by council after the close of that exhibition. The officer’s report provided to councillors said that the proposal “allows for the following matters to be considered by council that would otherwise be prohibited: A function centre in association with an outdoor recreation facility with up to 400 patrons present at any one time, an indoor recreation facility, a medical centre, [and] advertising signage.” Cr Steve Staikos supported the changes of “a number of key elements” of Hawthorn’s proposal. He said “this does represent somewhat of a change to the previous planning scheme amendment that Hawthorn Football Club have brought to Kingston and has gone through planning scheme amendment process.” “As the idea of the Kennedy Centre has evolved, so too the purpose of the Kennedy Community Centre has evolved. What Hawthorn Football Club has said to the community in Dingley is that they see the site as community facing rather than inwardly facing. Hawthorn is seeking to embed themselves not only in Dingley community, but also the Kingston and south-east community in general,” he said. “A lot of what is proposed is not thought of generally on former landfill sites, but we’ve got a big and successful AFL club looking to invest vast amounts of money into the Green Wedge on

a landfill site. “The facility itself does have merit.” Cr Rosemary West was the only councillor who voted in opposition to the changes. She said she was “disappointed” in Hawthorn FC after the project “began on such a positive note, wanting to enhance Green Wedge and work with community”. She said the amendments were a “hotshot plan to push for much more, including uses that jeopardise the integrity of Green Wedge.” “There’s indoor recreation facilities, six basketball courts, which is prohibited use in Green Wedge. There’s an increase from mandatory 150 patrons to 400, when there’s a 150 limit in the

Green Wedge,” she said. “We’d all acknowledge that the medical centre for athletes isn’t a reasonable thing for ancillary use, they want 12 doctors there. They’re going to have extended hours. I think it’s unfortunate. “There’s an increase from 414 to 830 parks but a reduction in bicycle parking despite being next to the chain of parks. “We also haven’t seen anything in report that says how big these [administration and accommodation buildings] are.” The Hawks had their Dingley Village home ticked off by Kingston Council and purchased the 28 hectare site in 2016. The project is expected to cost around $130 million.

KINGSTON COUNCIL is calling for the state government to follow through on their promise to invest in the Chain of Parks project. The Chain of Parks project has seen council purchase former landfill sites with the aim of turning them into linked parkland spaces. Earlier this year council spent $2.6 million on 3.02 hectares of land in Clarinda for the project, and commenced work at the Victory Road parkland site. In the leadup to the state election at the end of last year, the state government pledged that creating “the Sandbelt Parklands, a 355 hectare chain of parks running from Moorabbin to Dingley Village with walking and bike trails, conservation and adventure play areas” would be part of a $150 million investment into parklands statewide. Kingston mayor Georgina Oxley has called on the government to follow through on their promise to commit funding to the project by asking them to purchase two sites “at the highest priority”. “Council is pleased the Victorian government has committed funding to deliver the Chain of Parks, a long held vision to create new parkland and trails in Kingston’s northern suburbs that will link Karkarook Park through to Braeside Park,” Cr Oxley said. “Soon the area’s landfill sites will be closed for good and replaced with open space for the community to enjoy. Council wants the Delta and Henry Street landfill sites acquired as a matter of priority as the first step towards creating vital new parkland, trails and sporting facilities.” Both sites are in Heatherton.

Call for 'tap on the shoulder' for Takata SPONSORED CONTENT AR makers are calling on every Australian to tap someone they know on the shoulder - family, friends, neighbours or work colleagues - and urge them to check if their vehicles are affected by the Takata airbag recall. The faulty airbags have the potential to kill vehicle drivers and passengers. There have been 26 reported deaths and more than 300 reported injuries globally attributed to the airbags. The Federal Chamber of Automotive Industries chief executive Tony Weber said the status of more than 7.8 million vehicles have been checked on the industry's airbag recall website ismyairbagsafe.com.au. This had helped identify more than 1.2


million vehicles that were affected by the recall. But there are still more than 530,000 vehicles to be rectified.

"We are pleading with owners to check the status of their vehicles. It's time everyone joined this campaign by urging family, friends, neighbours and work colleagues to check if their vehicles are affected," Mr Weber said. "A quick tap on the shoulder could be the personal reminder that saves a life or prevents a serious injury.

It is important that people buying used vehicles privately check the recall status of a vehicle. "The ACCC has placed requirements on licensed dealers to ensure vehicles are identified and rectified prior to sale. However, these requirements do not apply to private sales of vehicles," he said.

If you are looking to privately purchase a used vehicle, please check the vehicle's recall status on the industry website." ■ This is sponsored content for Federal Chamber of Automotive Industries.

Youth the future for hall RENOVATION works at Mordialloc’s Masonic Hall are scheduled to begin by the end of the year, at an expected cost of $2 million. Council bought the building for $1.15 million in 2011, but it has since been sitting vacant for years. It will now be renovated to make it a permanent home for Kingston Youth Services. The mayor Georgina Oxley said “the former Masonic Hall is in a fantastic location in the centre of Kingston and on the train line to make it more accessible for young people right across our community.” “Local young people will be able to access important information, support and services to help them navigate

study, work, health issues and more,” she said. The refurbishment works at the heritage building will include adding a lift and ramps for disability access, a new kitchen, a new office space, and support service spaces. Bowden Corporation has been contracted to carry out the works on the building. Youth Services currently operates out of Southland, paying $90,000 in annual rent. Council identified youth services as a focus for the Masonic Hall building and sought expressions of interest in 2016 for tenants to lease the vacant building (“Hall’s well for youth hub plan”, The News, 8/3/17). Works soon: $2 million renovation works at the Mordialloc Masonic Hall have been contracted. Picture: Gary Sissons.

FRANKSTON MP Paul Edbrooke revealed his father’s story of survival in an emotional defence of mandatory reporting legislation which would force priests to report confessions of sexual abuse. Mr Edbrooke took to the floor of parliament on 28 August to share the story of his father, Nick, who was sexually abused by a clergyman as a child. “It’s the late 1960s, you’ve just arrived here in Melbourne for a fresh start, and at 15 you’ve already had your innocence torn away,” Mr Edbrooke said. “My dad is a survivor and he said I could share this letter if it assists parliament to realise apologies are worth nothing unless we follow them up with action.” Mr Edbrooke read an apology letter sent to his father last month, which detailed the abuse that he suffered and his subsequent suicide attempts. Mr Edbrooke also labelled Melbourne’s Catholic Archbishop Peter Comensoli as “detached from all logic and reality” in his address to parliament. Archbishop Comensoli came under fire last month during a discussion on ABC Radio about mandatory reporting legislation. Archbishop Comensoli said that he would be prepared to go

to jail in order to “keep the seal” of confession. He also defended convicted child sex offender George Pell in the wake of his failed appeal. Mr Edbrooke called Archbishop Comensoli’s comments an “insult to our community and our survivors”. FRANKSTON MP Paul Edbrooke.

EPA aims for response time reduction THE Environment Protection Authority Victoria will launch a pilot program to help “reduce response times to pollution” in the Kingston municipality. The program sees the EPA collaborate with council to “embed” EPA authorised officers within council to “respond to issues of noise, dust, odour and waste management arising from small to medium size businesses” and “equip communities and industry with the knowledge and skills to help prevent, identify and resolve environmental issues.” EPA CEO Dr Cathy Wilkinson said “we’re excited to be expanding our presence in Melbourne’s south east and seeing the improvements from the first phase, including reduced

response times to reports and improved industry compliance, replicated and built on in this second phase.” “As well as responding to issues such as dust, noise and odour, which have the potential to greatly affect liveability, the officers for the protection of the local environments will also be a valuable part of EPA’s increased focus on preventing and identifying illegal stockpiling and disposal of waste,” she said. “We’re committed to being closely connected with the communities we serve and empowering and encouraging them to assist us to prevent harm from pollution and waste.” The program is funded until June 2020.

Cladding concerns for building Brodie Cowburn brodie@baysidenews.com.au NEGOTIATIONS to lease out a bottom floor section of the Frankston Yacht Club building have hit troubled waters. Frankston Council confirmed last week that negotiations to occupy the space, which has mostly sat vacant since 2016, had been “halted”. Works to remove cladding from the building were cited as a reason. The mayor Michael O’Reilly issued a statement saying that an inspection by council’s municipal building surveyor had confirmed that the building was affected by “combustible cladding”. “Given the Yacht Club building is a council owned asset, we were advised that any permit associated with future fit-out would best be determined by the Victorian Government’s Building Appeals Board,” he said. “We are taking this matter seriously and are currently finalising a solution plan to present to the Building Appeals Board, however we do not anticipate an outcome until late this year. “As a result of this unexpected occurrence, council has been forced to halt negotiations with their previously preferred downstairs cafe tenant, set to begin trading this summer. “While we were aware of the issue before we went out for expressions of interest, we’d hoped that a solution would be reached more quickly

and therefore advertised in good faith. Unfortunately, based on expert advice, that this is not the case and we are unable to proceed.” Upwards of $11 million has been poured into works at the building. Out-

side of the Yacht Club, the building has mostly sat vacant since 2016. In May, council announced that it had reached an “in principle agreement” for a six year lease on the ground level as well as a portion of the external deck for a

“licensed restaurant/cafe” at a rate of $40,000 per annum base rent following a 3 month rent free period. “Once the cladding concerns have been resolved, council would continue its efforts to activate the building for

the community to enjoy,” Cr O’Reilly said. “We realise this news will disappoint and frustrate many in our community however it is imperative that we ensure all sections of the building are compliant before we can issue any form of occupancy permit to a potential hospitality business.” Cr O’Reilly said that Yacht Club members could still use the site. “Areas currently occupied by the Frankston Yacht Club have been deemed suitable for occupation, with an existing occupancy permit in place, so members are able to continue to utilise the site,” he said. “Yacht Club representatives are aware of the possible cladding concerns and have implemented a number of minor precautionary measures. Council is committed to seeing the Yacht Club building reach its full potential, and will keep the community informed of developments as they occur.” The building was officially opened in July 2016 with the Yacht Club its sole tenant. The building was hailed as “a stunning addition to the waterfront precinct” when opened and a cafe and restaurant spruiked as “the jewel in the crown” (“More cash splashed on Yacht Club”, The News, 23/10/17). In November 2016, councillors sanctioned the spending of around $100,000 a year to stop the wooden exterior of the building from turning “grey with age” when weather beaten on the foreshore.

Learner loses it A LEARNER motorcycle rider caught driving nearly 60kmph over the speed limit on the Dingley Bypass has had his bike suspended. The 19-year-old Clayton South driver was detected speeding by Moorabbin Highway Patrol members in Heatherton. He was

clocked travelling at 139kmph in an 80 zone at around 11.10pm, 28 August. Officers administered a breath test and the teenager returned a reading of 0.085. His bike was suspended for 30 days, and the man is expected to be charged on summons with drink driving and speeding offences.

Nearly 400 arrests POLICE operation Tidal has seen nearly 400 youths arrested across Melbourne’s south-east. Southern Metro Region Superintendent Paul Hollowood said Operation Tidal was “focused on addressing youth related offending across three major crime themes

which included robberies, public order offending and vehicle crime linked to serious offending.” “Operation Tidal also links in closely with the Southern Metro Crime Team’s Operation Pendsend which is a Youth Response Team made up of detectives who monitor at-risk youths and develop disruption and enforcement strategies. The operation commenced earlier this year in April and we’ve seen some really positive results,” he said. “This is a strategic approach to sharing information to ensure we have an intelligence-led approach to our enforcement of youth offending in this area. We know crimes such as robberies and public order offending has been a concern to the community and Operation Tidal has been developed to specifically target these issues. “As part of Operation Tidal, officers proactively target known hotspots in an effort to detect and deter offending. Through our highly visible presence in the community and patrols of high risk locations we’ve been very successful in identifying and arresting offenders very quickly.”

Police said the man told them he had sped because he was “late for work”. The man had his car impounded for a month, and will face court at a later date.

Roads action TRAFFIC police taking part in the National Day of Action, below, say it is a direct response to the “horror year which is taking place on Australian roads”. As part of the campaign an alcohol and drug testing site was set up in Marine Parade, Hastings where 321 drivers were breath tested, with one returning a positive result for drugs. Police say they plan to set up testing sites at random locations across the peninsula to conduct mobile and stationary speed checks. Up until Wednesday last week 13 people had lost their lives on Frankston and Mornington Peninsula roads.

No excuse A 30-YEAR-old Frankston North man was caught speeding and running a red light, Thursday 29 August. Police observed the man drive through a red light on FrankstonDandenong Road, before he was clocked driving at 120kmph in a 70kmph zone on Ballarto Road, Carrum Downs.

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.

The electric light - council dissatisfied - special meeting called Compiled by Cameron McCullough AT Thursday’s Council meeting a letter was read from the managing director of the Frankston and District Gas and Electric Supply Co., asking for an extension of time in connection with the electric lighting of the street lamps, and proposing a “round table” conference. The proposal met with little sympathy. The feeling was that the Company had received every consideration. Cr Mason was particularly emphatic on the point that something definite must be done to procure an improved service and to keep the Company strictly to its agreement. It was decided to hold a special meeting of the Council on Thursday, 18th inst., when definite action will be taken. *** TODAY and tonight—Bazaar at Langwarrin. The orchestra to be in attendance. *** TODAY’S football match, Frankston v. Mornington, at Somerville will be a big draw. *** TOMORROW (Sunday) Sunday School anniversary at Langwarrin, with entertainment on Monday night. *** “THE Butterflies”—At the Hastings Hall on Thursday, 11th September, a grand entertainment will be given by “The Butterflies” for a patriotic cause. A good programme is promised to be followed by a dance and supper. Miss Kitty Jones is hon. sec. and Miss Nellie Nicholls, hon. treasurer. *** THE movement to re-organise the

Frankston Agricultural Society and to hold a show early next year is gathering way. Mr. James Grice has been approached in the matter and his support can be counted on. It is intended to call a meeting of all interested almost immediately. *** AEROPLANE to visit Frankston – The date fixed for the visit of the aeroplane to Frankston in connection with the Peace Loan, is Monday next 8th September. The Machine which will be in charge of Capt A. H. Cobby, D.S.O., D.F.C. will arrive at 11 a.m. and remain until 3 p.m. when it will leave for Mornington. *** THE monthly meeting of the Frankston School Committee was held on Tuesday evening. Present: Cr Oates (chairman), and Messrs Mark Brody (correspondent), H. McComb, Johns, Nicholson, Ward and W. Crawford Young. The head teacher (Mr Jennings) reported that the school bell was now placed in position, and would be brought into use at once. Miss Murphy, of the teaching staff, had resigned, and her place taken by Miss Gale. Owing to illness, Mr Jennings had been unable to plant out 200 olive trees on Arbor Day. It was resolved that the trees be planted along the foreshore on a suitable date, to be fixed by the teacher. The clearing and levelling of portion of the school ground was left in the hands of Mr Brody. It was decided to ask the Council to improve the footpath in front of


the school. Some ti-tree standing at a corner of a street near the school was referred to as a danger to children, inasmuch as it hid the approach of motor cars. Steps are to be taken to have the spot referred to made safe. The committee decided to take action in irregular attendance cases, and the teacher was instructed to submit monthly reports in connection with same. A letter of congratulation is to be sent to Beatrice Elizabeth Lewis one of the scholars, who has not missed a single day during the last 3 years. From 28th August, 1916, 23rd August, 1919, she attended 1202 days. The chairman and members welcomed Mr Jennings back after his severe illness, and expressed the hope that he would soon be restored to robust health again. *** HEARD in the Train. That another new year is in sight and Frankston is still minus a brass band. That general interest is beginning to concentrate in the matter of erecting a Soldiers’ Memorial at Frankston. That the local branch of the Returned Soldiers’ Association is now working effectively in this connection. That the Frankston Rechabites are setting a good example by organising an entertainment in aid of the Memorial Fund. That they have arranged with the Hon S. Manger to give his lantern slide lecture at Frankston on a date during next month. Mr Manger has only recently returned from America and the views connected with his trip

average robustness. That the retiring president Mr J B. Jolly is prepared to donate £5 to the fund of the Association conditionally on 9 others contributing a like amount – Also conditionally that he is not asked to retain the presidentship. *** THE now Shire President (Cr Turner) signalised his appointment by putting through the Council business in record time on Thursday. *** CAPT Maxwell was not well enough to resume his medical practice at Frankston this week as intended and it may be some weeks before he is sufficiently strong to take up active work again. In the meantime Dr Owen is acting as his locum temens. *** MISS Hay, of Frankston House, returned to Frankston last week. Her intended holiday was unfortunately spoiled by illness and she was an inmate of Dr McKeddies private hospital for several weeks. Her many friends will be pleased to know that she is now enjoying much improved health. *** ONE of the scholars at the Frankston State School (Beatrice Lewis,) has not missed a single school day in 3 years. Since 23rd August 1916 to 23rd August 1919 she attended 1202 days. The school committee has sent her a congratulatory letter. *** FROM the pages of the Mornington Standard, 6 September 1919

Shoes - for health and wellbeing HEALTH and wellbeing is the new trend that we hear a lot about but it tends to primarily focus on diet, sleep patterns and exercise as the critical issues for a better quality of life.

That Thursday’s Council meeting saw the introduction of four representatives who won municipal honors for the first time in last week’s election. That there is work for the Peninsula Progress Associations to do immediately in the matter of securing an improved train service for the summer months. Recent alterations made by the Commissioners prolongs the journey between Frankston and Melbourne by from 4 to 8 minutes. The Seaford Progress Association has already got “a move on” and the Hastings, Baxter and Frankston bodies should follow suit. That Hastings is contemplating a big sports carnival for Boxing Day in aid of the Soldiers Memorial Fund. It is proposed to run a special train from Mordialloc for the occasion. That the Frankston and Seaford Councillors have a nice little program to push on with straight away, and the public are looking for immediate action in connection with electric lighting, water supply and improved facilities for the transaction of shire business.

The Eastern Freeway is the Eighth Wonder of the World By Stuart McCullough I’VE had enough. The groundswell of cynicism, the avalanche of snide remarks; it’s simply too much. That people react to joyous news with such unbridled skepticism and unquenchable scorn is a dark stain on humanity’s shriveled soul. Enough! I, for one, won’t stand for it. I renounce every snide remark and piece of poisonous commentary and declare that I am over-the-moon happy. Whereas others greet the news that part of the Eastern Freeway is being considered for heritage listing with a spray of invective, I say ‘about time’. I mean, seriously, what took them so long? Who hasn’t been stuck in traffic waiting on the off-ramp to Punt Road and been overwhelmed by the wonder, the beauty and pure concrete grandeur that is the Eastern Freeway? Frankly, a heritage listing doesn’t go far enough. I intend to continue campaigning until the most visually stunning piece of freeway known to humanity is declared the eighth wonder of the world. The Great Barrier Reef, the Daintree Forest, Uluru and the Eastern Freeway; they should all be celebrated and protected. It’s going to be great for tourism. As news spreads, they’ll be turning up here by the planeload in the hope of getting a glimpse of the thing. Ideally, busloads of tourists will use the Eastern Freeway to travel down and visit the Fairy Penguins, thereby experiencing two of our greatest attractions in one afternoon. The only thing I’m concerned about is that the emergency lane may not be sufficient for buses that wish to pull over so that eager visitors can take photos. It’d be

a crime not to take loads of pictures. The possibilities are endless. I see postcards, hats and key rings. Posters, commemorative plates and spoons as well as snow domes will crowd the shelves. I’m not quite sure how to approach soft toys, but I’m sure we’ll figure something out. Apparel that says ‘My Grandma visited the Eastern Freeway and all I got was this lousy t-shirt’ will be keenly sought-after. There will be DVDs too, featuring slow motion images of the freeway (which is how it often feels when you’re stuck on it) with a voice over by Sam Neill describing our most historically significant freeway.

So much has happened in that stretch of freeway. There’s the spot near Bulleen Road where Bourke and Wills, along with their camels perished after getting stuck in peak hour. There’s the stretch where President Bill Clinton was forced to wait when returning from a top-secret trip to Tyabb to do a spot of presidential antiquing while Hillary was fishing for flathead on Frankston Pier. Then there’s the bit just before the Punt Road off-ramp where Albert Einstein got a flat tyre and developed the Theory of Relativity whilet trying to get the wheel nuts off. It’s a little known fact that the Treaty of Versailles was

not, as many believe, signed somewhere in France but in the back of a maxi-taxi on our very own Eastern Freeway. ‘Versailles’ was, in actual fact, the name of the driver. This is history that should be celebrated. This is not the kind monumental paradigm-shifting event that can be commemorated with a mere plaque. We need to make a proper fuss. Some type of ceremony with dancers, music and an appearance by the Little River Band could do the trick. Or perhaps a festival that lasts a week and is capped off with a public holiday. No festival in the history of the universe will ever have been so suited

to having food trucks. Marvel at the drainage. Bathe in the splendour of the transit lane. Ponder the meaning of life as you gaze upon the Chandler Highway overpass. There’ll be something for everyone. Bring the kids. I get that there are some incurable cynics who prefer to scoff at the news that the Eastern Freeway will be heritage listed. I find that sad. What those professional naysayers fail to grasp is the sheer potential that has now been unleashed upon Melbourne. Because if the Eastern Freeway is eligible for heritage listing then, truly, anything is possible. Think about that for a moment. If a congested stretch of concrete and bitumen can be safeguarded for reasons of cultural or aesthetic significance, then there’s no reason why any one of us might not be named Secretary General of the United Nations. Let your imagination run riot as you consider all that could be. If the Eastern Freeway is heritage listed, then I look forward to Punt Road being nominated for the Gold Logie. Camberwell Junction deserves an Oscar. The big roundabout at the top of Elizabeth Street should absolutely be up for a Grammy. How it didn’t win ‘Best New Artist’ after they installed the traffic lights is a complete mystery. Personally, I’d like to see the roundabout on Coolart and Mornington-Tyabb Roads shortlisted for the Nobel Peace Prize. I am personally willing to travel to Oslo for that. Doubtless, I’ll need to travel on the Eastern Freeway to get myself to the airport. That seems fitting, somehow. stuart@stuartmccullough.com

Bulls charge into Grand Final


By Brodie Cowburn ANOTHER huge performance from star forward Marc Holt has put Karingal in the Grand Final with a win over Langwarrin. Somerville Recreation Reserve played host to the clash on Saturday. It was a rematch of the qualifying final from two weeks ago, in which Langwarrin were able to get the win. Karingal came rushing out of the gates with a four goals to zero first term, before the Kangaroos bounced back to close the lead to 12 by half time. The Bulls stretched their lead back out to five goals by three-quarter time, and held on to claim the win 8.11 (59) to 14.7 (91). Karingal have Marc Holt to thank for booking their Grand Final spot. The full forward booted nine goals for the afternoon and proved to be the difference. Holt had come into finals with some form troubles, but has since come alive with 20 goals in his last two games. Andrew McInnes and Lucas Vanraay also played big parts for the Bulls. Karingal will face off against Red Hill in the Grand Final on Saturday. The sides will play at 2.30pm at Skybus Stadium in Frankston. Red Hill will be looking for payback after falling short in last year’s big dance.

Reigning premiers crash out DIVISION ONE

By Brodie Cowburn PINES have gone crashing out of the MPNFL in straight sets after a shock 62 point loss to Bonbeach. The reigning premiers came into finals in patchy form, and weren’t able to correct course. Pines started well and went into the first break with the lead, but looked a completely different side after quarter time. Bonbeach got the upper hand with a seven goals to one second term, and never let it slip from there. The Sharks were able to keep the Pythons at an arm’s length in the third term, and finished the job with a stunning six goals to one final quarter. Pines looked a shell of the side which lifted the trophy last season. They crashed out of finals with a 9.10 (64) to 18.18 (126) win. Mitchell Gent was best on ground for the Sharks, kicking four goals. Trent DennisLane also put four goals on the board At RJ Rowley Reserve, Sorrento punched their Grand Final ticket with a win over Dromana. Sorennto looked dominant from the start, and were comfortably ahead by over 50 points at half time. After the main break Dromana showed more fight, but it was far too little far too late. Sorrento secured their spot in the premiership decider with a 16.12 (108) to 7.9 (51) win. A seven goal haul from Leigh Poholke was instrumental for the Sharks, while Nick Corp also performed well with five majors. Dromana will do battle with Bonbeach on Sunday, 8 September at Olympic Oval. The winner of the preliminary final clash will face Sorrento in the Grand Final.

Tigers tamed: Sorrento had no trouble securing a Grand Final berth with a 57 point win over Dromana. Picture: Andrew Hurst Chelsea Mordialloc Mentone News 4 September 2019



First title for Somerville Eagles SOCCER

By Craig MacKenzie SOMERVILLE Eagles are the toast of local soccer after clinching the State 5 South championship last Saturday. And the side jointly led by coach Scott Morrison and player-coach Dave Greening did it in style with a gutsy away win against Bunyip District Strikers. Somerville was forced to play most of the contest with 10 men after Matt Swanson reacted to a bad challenge by throwing the ball at his opponent and being sent off in the 22nd minute. The champion elect had taken the lead in the 9th minute when a Luke Hodge flick-on was clinically finished by Greening. But a goalkeeping error by Nathan Brown allowed Bunyip’s Gareth Davies to equalise in the 20th minute with a long-range effort. A Ben Meiklem cross rebounded off the crossbar right on half-time and Greening reacted quickest to restore Somerville’s lead. Daniel Vigilanti equalised straight after the restart but a superb Callum Richardson volley in the 62nd minute made it 3-2 and when Greening notched his hat-trick in the 70th minute Somerville supporters knew that the club’s first ever State League championship was in touching distance. The final whistle was the cue for celebration among Somerville players, coaching staff, committee and fans and for veteran striker Mark Pagliarulo it was a special moment as it was his first trophy of any kind in 17 seasons. Co-coach Dave Greening was full of praise for the players and for the off-field support he had received. “Scott, Stan (Packer) and myself are so proud of all the boys,” Greening said. “We had a two-year plan when we came here and we’ve been able to achieve our aims. “The spirit here is incredible and I particularly want to thank Craig Bozelle, Luke Mulder and Zach Peddersen who do a remarkable amount of work for this club.” In NPL2 news Langwarrin lost 2-1 away to Manningham United Blues on Saturday. Langy was 1-0 down when defender Jaiden Madafferi was given a straight red in the 42nd minute. Substitute Damir Stoilovic scored Langy’s consolation goal in the 93rd

minute. Scottish striker John Baird is expected to head back to the UK next week to take up a short-term deal with Raith Rovers but hopes to return to Melbourne early next year. In State 1 news Mornington lost 5-1 away to league leader Nunawading City last weekend. Mornington is in transition as the club tries to integrate younger players into its matchday squad however the loss to Nunawading was the club’s 10th this season, the most defeats it has recorded in a single season for at least 15 years. In State 2 news Peninsula Strikers lost 2-1 away to North Caulfield on Sunday despite going 1-0 up after five minutes thanks to Grant Lane. Strikers will be aiming to finish in the top half of the table and play a major role in the promotion outcome when they host second-placed South Springvale this weekend. In State 3 news Skye United is now just one win from promotion after defeating Frankston Pines 2-0 at Skye Recreation Reserve on Friday night. A man-of-the-match performance from keeper Jonathan Crook kept Pines at bay. The hosts hit the front in the 15th

minute when Jason Nowakowski broke through into a one-on-one and squared the ball for a simple tap in for striker Mitch Blake. Five minutes later Blake turned provider as he lashed the ball across the face of goal and Nowakowski finished well to make it 2-0. The second half was a different story as Pines gained the upper hand and put Skye under the pump. Crook was immense and even saved from the penalty spot in the 82nd minute after Billy Painting was judged to have fouled inside the box. The Kiwi keeper won the Chris Attard Medal while Kevin Brown was judged best afield for Pines. Teenage Pines defender Christian Malgioglio was stretchered off shortly after Nowakowski’s goal and taken by ambulance to Frankston Hospital. As we went to press he was due to have an MRI scan to ascertain the extent of the injury to his left knee. In State 4 news Baxter won the derby clash with Seaford United 2-0 at North Seaford Reserve on Saturday. The scoreline could have been more convincing for the visitors had Lewis Gibson, Charlie Jones, Lawrence Komba and substitute Abdul

Darmanii converted clearcut chances. At times Seaford looked fragile at the back while rarely troubling Baxter keeper James Foster. The one time Foster was called into the thick of the action he responded in style. Seaford player-coach Matt MorrisThomas had come off the bench in the 56th minute and in the 69th minute his clever curling free kick struck the base of the far post and bounced up where Kurt Wagner-Goldsworthy headed firmly from close range only for Foster to effect a superb reflex save by parrying wide for a corner. Baxter led 2-0 at half-time and deservedly so. Niko Juric’s free kick in the 11th minute was headed home by Baxter central defender Matt McDermott who had an excellent match. Stuart McKenzie usually appears in centre midfield for Baxter but was used up front against Seaford and was a constant threat. Baxter hit Seaford on the break after clearing a corner in the 35th minute and McKenzie broke through striking a low shot across Seaford keeper Anthony Madafferi and in off the far post. Seaford huffed and puffed in the

second half but to no effect. Meanwhile Rosebud signed off on a successful first season in State 5 South with a thumping 6-1 home win over Hampton Park United. First half doubles to Callum Norton and Blake Hicks had the home side in control at half-time and second-half goals from Beau Sharpe and Chris Parry completed the scoreline. However, the day was soured by the abandonment of the reserves match when the referee was allegedly assaulted by a Hampton Park player who had been sent off. Aspendale Stingrays claimed all three points in a nine-goal thriller at Power Reserve downing home side Endeavour Hills Fire 5-4 on Saturday. The Stingrays twice came from behind in one of their best displays of the season. After going 1-0 down in the 3rd minute they hit back to lead 3-2 at half-time thanks to a Kieran Hughes strike, a Nathan Barnett header and a penalty conversion from Kenan Nuhanovic whose initial attempt was parried only for him to tuck away the rebound. The home side equalised early in the second half then took a 4-3 lead after 77 minutes when Eid Sarwari completed his hat-trick. But the Stingrays hit back when Nuhanovic struck again following an Adrian Pace cross in the 82nd minute. Just when a draw looked certain midfielder Rory Carmichael, who had been the Stingrays’ best player, settled the issue in the 90th minute from 10 metres out.

Southern United dumped by FV SOCCER

By Craig MacKenzie FOOTBALL Victoria dealt local women’s soccer a bodyblow by revoking Southern United’s senior NPLW licence last week. Southern told FV of its plans for 2020 as player-coach Melissa Maizels had been negotiating with a number of players with a view to strengthening the senior squad but FV wouldn’t budge. The findings of a six-month review of the women’s game in Victoria were delivered to the FV board some months ago and many believe that the federation waited till near season’s end before swinging the axe. FV also dumped Geelong Galaxy United and with the two clubs that boast the largest catchment areas booted out of the elite league next season’s NPLW will become an eightteam competition exclusively for Melbourne metropolitan clubs. FV has offered both Southern and Geelong junior NPL licences meaning that the clubs can continue to compete at an elite level in under-12s, under14s and under-16s, an offer Southern has accepted. Southern’s seniors and under-19s have accepted an offer to play in State 1 South-East and it is expected that FV will call for expressions of interest for the 2021 NPL season some time next year. Southern will no longer be a co-tenant with Frankston Pines at Monterey Reserve and is hoping to become a tenant of Casey council.

Frankston council was hopeful that Southern would become a tenant at the new multi-million dollar Wedge Road sports facility in Carrum Downs which is near completion and includes a FIFA-standard synthetic pitch while Monterey Reserve had been ear-

marked for a $3.9 million makeover. The plan was for Southern to continue to use Monterey Reserve for home games while using Wedge Road as a training and administrative base. Southern’s expected tenancy at both venues played a pivotal role in funding

for these projects but neither Monterey Reserve nor Wedge Road is compliant with NPLW facilities requirements and if Southern is to regain a senior NPLW licence then a switch of venues is essential. No player race, no dugouts, im-

proper changerooms for players and referees, and no spectator seating are just some of the non-compliant issues Southern faced at Wedge Road and it claims that council would not address these issues despite being made aware of them. Southern also was stunned by Frankston council’s planned hourly charge of $32.50 for use of the facility on top of a $50,000 tenancy fee. Last Thursday night Southern played its last match at Monterey Reserve in a catch-up fixture going down 4-0 in a competitive performance against a Heidelberg team chasing a finals berth. It signed off on its senior NPLW involvement on Sunday with a 4-0 loss away to Box Hill United with the under-19s also losing 4-0. Southern’s under-14s defeated Box Hill 3-2 with goals from Rhiannon Kelleher, Chiara Renzeme and Madina Ali while a Rhys McKenna hattrick and a Shanece Dias goal gave the under-16s a 4-0 success.

Where to now for Group-winning Pippie? HORSE RACING

By Ben Triandafillou THE John and Chris Meagher-trained mare, Pippie, landed the biggest win of her six-start career with an emphatic victory in the Group Three Cockram Stakes (1200m) at Caulfield on Saturday 31 August. Under the guidance of jockey Ben Melham, Pippie took up the lead and controlled the race before being asked for her ultimate effort to kick away from her rivals and claim the $160,000 Group Three by oneand-a-half lengths. The victory was Pippie’s third straight win this preparation having previously won at Doomben and Caulfield, and her fourth win in her short career. The Mornington-trained mare has always been touted as a potential talent since her debut five-length victory just over a year ago, but Saturday demonstrated that an aim towards a Group One contest isn’t outside of her reach. “I remember telling Ben [Melham] ‘I don’t know how much is under the hood’ but we are starting to find out,” trainer Chris Meagher said. “We like to think that she could get to the big Group Ones in time but in three weeks’ time we’ll be back here for the How Now (Stakes) which is also 1200m.” Pippie ticked off the first step of a near identical path that her Group One winning stablemate Savanna Amour followed on the way to claiming the Cockram/ How Now Stakes double in 2017. Meagher said a three-week break leading into the Group Three How Now Stakes at Caulfield would do Pippie “the world of good”. “We don’t have to do much with her in between races,” he said. “She can become light quite quickly but in saying that she is 15 kgs up from what she was last year so she has definitely matured.” Pippie will stick to the sprinting distances and make best use of her blistering speed until Meagher starts to think otherwise. “We would love to in time [step out over further distance] but at this stage while she’s just showing sheer speed we’ll leave her at that and when she tells us that she wants to go a bit further we can certainly do that,” he said. Pippie has now earnt more than $230,000 in prizemoney.
