Books list

WESTALL Library librarians Fel Jeges, left, and Lorraine Manuel get ready to hire out some of the most popular books hired from Kingston libraries last year. Kingston Council has revealed a list of the top 10 books borrowed across the municipality in 2017. See story Page 6. Picture: Gary Sissons

Cameras call to view public Neil Walker neil@baysidenews.com.au MEMBERS of the public who attend Kingston Council meetings to watch councillors debate and vote on council matters may be filmed in future in the wake of a turbulent planning meeting last month. Cheers, jeers and dissent from the public gallery accompanied councillors’ debate on the contentious completion of the Bay Trail shared cycling

and walking track from Mentone Life Saving Club to Parkdale’s Rennison St at a planning meeting on the evening of Wednesday 24 January. At the subsequent regular monthly public council meeting held on 29 January, South ward councillor Georgina Oxley won a narrow 5-4 support from fellow councillors to have council officers look at the possibility of recording the public gallery at council meetings. Cr Oxley said some people had contacted her after the planning meeting

saying they had safety concerns about attending meetings open to the public in the council chamber. “The safety of everyone here is something I think we should all be concerned about,” she said at the 29 January meeting. Central ward councillor Ron Brownlees disagreed and said he had seen “much worse” at council meetings during his decades in public office. “Sure there’s argy-bargy that goes on and you hear the gallery laugh and make interjections, and you give

it back, but I can’t see where anyone is feeling threatened in terms of their physical or mental welling,” he said. Cr Oxley said she saw behaviour by some people in the gallery when the Bay Trail debate was underway acted in a way that “was at best disruptive, and at worst absolutely disgraceful”. “As councillors tried to speak to items on the agenda, members in the gallery were jeering and yelling.” She said submitters about the Bay Trail construction were also “jeered at and abused and called vile names to

rude to repeat in this chamber”. “Visitors to our council chamber need to be respectful of the people here and the decisions and processes that occur in this chamber that are fundamental to our democracy,” Cr Oxley said. “And most do but some members of the gallery hide amongst a crowd which, in my books, is almost as bad as having a fake Facebook profile and spreading hate behind a keyboard and it is just as cowardly.” Continued Page 4

Blood moon rising

Recycling OK to go

MORNINGTON Peninsula Astronomical Society members and keen moon watchers gathered at The Briars Astronomy Centre in Mt Martha last Wednesday evening (31 January) to witness the total lunar eclipse on the second full moon of the month. At first, the mood was somewhat subdued as the cloud cover was heavy but at about 10pm the skies cleared revealing the beginning of the Penumbral Eclipse. Over the next four hours, the shadow of the earth gradually encroached between the moon and the sun, changing the colour of the moon to a blood red. Members of the astronomy club were kept busy helping the public set up their cameras and telescopes. By 1am, most people had called it a night leaving a few diehards to watch the end of the eclipse in the cool night air under the Milky Way. The next total lunar eclipse will be on 28 July, commencing at 3.13am with astronomical twilight beginning just prior to mid-eclipse, ending observation at 6.22am precisely.

A POSSIBLE waste recycling crisis is unlikely to impact on Kingston ratepayers according to council. Kingston area residents can continue putting out recycling bins for council collection as normal amid the recycling crisis elsewhere in Victoria. Several councils, particularly west of Melbourne, have been told by Visy that the company will cease accepting recycling products from 9 February due to China banning the import of waste from Australia. “Kingston is not a Visy client and is not currently impacted by these changes,” Kingston Council city assets and environment general manager Daniel Freer said. “Kingston has a contract with CleanAway which uses Polytrade. “Recyclable materials from Kingston homes continue to be accepted by council’s contractor and residents are encouraged to continue using their yellow bins as normal.” Councils elsewhere may have to stockpile recycled materials or dump it in landfill.

PSO attacked TRANSIT police have charged a man following an alleged assault on a protective services officer last month. The PSO had been patrolling the Carrum train station on 20 January when he was allegedly assaulted by another man. He was taken to hospital with minor injuries. A 27-year-old Skye man was charged with assault emergency services worker and intentionally and recklessly causing injury. He is due to reappear at Frankston Magistrates’ Court on 12 February. Anyone with information is urged to contact Crime Stoppers 1800 333 000.

View of public in the picture Continued from Page 1 Debate about the Bay Trail has been marred online to such an extent that Mordialloc Labor MP Tim Richardson raised the subject in Parliament in September last year. “I have been greatly concerned about the standard of debate on this issue and the comments made about a female councillor in recent months on an anonymous Facebook page,” Mr Richardson said in Parliament. “Everyone has the right in a democracy to put forward their views in a passionate and respectful way and to put forward their case. What is not acceptable is the deeply hurtful and personal attacks.” The comments on Facebook are understood to have been directed at Central ward councillor Rosemary West. At the 29 January meeting, Cr West said she knew people who are “intimidated” about attending meetings about the Bay Trail due to behaviour at previous meetings debating the matter. “I think our local democracy is under threat from the people who last week were abusing councillors and also members of the public in the gallery,” she said. Cr Ron Brownlees denied abusing any members of the public gallery at the planning meeting on 24 January. “I made no contact with anyone in that gallery either before or after the meeting except when a member of that gallery, who is on the tape, has had a go at me. I think I invited the person if they didn’t like what they heard to leave the room. “Now if that’s feeling intimidated or feeling uncomfortable I really wonder

where we’re going. I’m thinking “hang on, kindergarten or primary school or high school”. We’re all adults and should behave as adults.” Cr Brownlees said he does not worry about what is yelled out at him. “You’ve got to have a thick skin and you’ve got to wear that ... that’s part of life.” The mayor Cr Steve Staikos advised Cr Brownlees to make comments through the chair of the meeting at the time of the exchange between the councillor and the anonymous member of the public. Crs Tamsin Bearsley, Brownlees, Geoff Gledhill and George Hua voted against a council officers’ report on possibly recording the public at council meetings. Crs Staikos, West, David Eden, Tamara Barth and Oxley supported the

report which will be tabled and voted on by councillors at a council meeting soon. Council general manager Jonathan Guttman indicated at the 29 January meeting that council will likely need to get legal advice about filming members of the public in the council chamber as part of the council officers’ report. Councillors voted 5-4, along the same split vote lines, to narrow Beach Rd in part along the three-kilometre “missing link” of the Bay Trail between Mentone and Parkdale “to save foreshore vegetation”. Objectors to the road narrowing, which will be within VicRoads guidelines, have concerns about motorists and cyclists’ safety on Beach Rd after the narrowing of the road is complete.

Theft charges

A KEYSBOROUGH man is among three men remanded to appear at Melbourne Magistrates’ Court in April on theft charges. He has been charged with 10 counts of burglary, one of theft, one of attempted burglary and one of attempted theft of a motor vehicle. The man, 23, as well as a 24-yearold Springvale man and a 24-year-old Rowville man, will appear on 26 April for a committal mention. Detectives from Kingston CIU arrested the men on 31 January. They will allege the men were among a gang of six, including one woman, who robbed businesses in Kingston and surrounding suburbs, 8-31 January.

Big haul A FOUR-wheel-drive, power boat, trailer and power tools valued at up to $170,000 were stolen from a Mordialloc business, overnight Saturday 3 February. Burglars cut a padlock at the Boundary Rd premises to raise a roller door and then broke a glass panel to enter the workshop. Their haul included a 2017 Jeep Cherokee valued at $110,000, a Four Winds Bow Rider power boat valued at $40,000, boat trailer and Milwaukee power tools valued at $15,000.

Car stolen

A RESIDENT did not notice an offender walk in the front door of a Mordialloc house and steal a briefcase, sunglasses, leather jacket, cash and the keys to a 2007 Hyundai Getz, early Friday 2 February.

Neil Walker neil@baysidenews.com.au

The red car was then stolen from out front of the Ormond St house and used in a petrol drive-off in Sandringham that day. The items stolen were valued at $2000 and the car $5000.

Goods loaded

THREE offenders who jemmied a roller door behind the Mentone Business Centre, 4.35am, Sunday 4 February, made off with TVs, range hood and a vacuum cleaner which they loaded into a black Camry sedan. The items were valued at “several thousand dollars”, police said.

Beach box breached THIEVES used bolt cutters to break into a beach box at the end of Wimborne Avenue in Chelsea sometime just before Saturday 3 February but nothing was stolen.

Garden gear goes BURGLARS who forced their way into a garage at a house in Nepean Highway, Carrum, stole a lawn mower, lawn cutter and blower/vac valued at $1000. Entering the house through an internal door they rifled

through cupboards and drawers but nothing else was stolen.

Bag snatched A SWIMMER at Edithvale beach left a towel and black bag on the sand, 10.45am, Sunday 4 February. The empty bag was later found in bushes at the end of Somme Lane. An iPod and personal items were missing.

Station robbery

A YOUNG man walking east in the Moorabbin train station concourse was assaulted by a teenager who stole electrical cables from his backpack, 12.20am, Monday 5 February. The offender, aged about 16 and wearing a red jacket and tan hat, followed the victim towards Station St where he elbowed him in the face before demanding his backpack. As he was searching through it a passer-by intervened and ordered him to return a number of items. The offender ran off with charging cables. Anyone with information is urged to call Crime Stoppers 1800 333 000.

IT has taken more than two years but more car parking spaces may soon be available at Parkdale train station. Councillors at the Kingston Council public meeting last Monday (29 January) unanimously voted to push ahead with plans to revamp car parking spaces at the train station based on designs first drafted in September 2015. A council officers’ report tabled at the council meeting noted: “At present, there is no formal commuter car parking at Parkdale Railway Station recognised by PTV (Public Transport Victoria) or Metro Trains. “However, commuters have long been parking in informal angle car parks along both Como Parade East and Como Parade West. Estimates are that up to 45 vehicles are parked along Como Parade West and 20 vehicles parked along Como Parade East in these informal areas. “Vehicles are also parked further along Como Parade East and West parallel to the kerb in areas outside these spots, although there is a mix of 4 and 6-hour car parking spaces along these roads closer to the centre to provide parking opportunities for traders and other longer-term users.” Council will now write to PTV to request 50 spaces on Como Parade West and 35 on Como Parade East now pedestrian walkways and a near-

by roundabout have been upgraded. PTV and VicTrack previously nixed the formal train station car parking proposal citing concerns about pedestrian facilities. “Parkdale Railway Station, like all our railway stations, suffers from a lack of parking,” Central ward councillor Geoff Gledhill said at the meeting. “However, there is a fair amount of space, that if treated properly, we can retain all of the significant trees that are around there and provide much-needed parking for commuters and take some of the pressure off surrounding residential streets.” Fellow Central ward councillor Rosemary West thanked council officers to redrafting the car parking design to save four trees from the chop. “My feeling is that this parking space will be more pleasant and more useful to people with the trees to provide shade and there is some positive amenity in that.”

Grants open APPLICATIONS are now open for Kingston Council’s 2017-18 Community Grants Program with thousands of dollars on offer to help community groups. Applications are open 29 February until 2 April. For more information see kingston. vic.gov.au/communitygrants or call 1300 653 356.

Kinder upgrade on its way CARRUM children will soon be enjoying improved kindergarten facilities after Kingston Council appointed a builder to complete a $720,000 upgrade at the Rene Anderson Complex building. Kingston mayor Cr Steve Staikos said the upgrades to the muchloved community facility will have longlasting benefits for local families and the many community groups that use the site. “The kindergarten has served generations of local families and these upgrades will ensure it continues to do so for many years to come,” Cr Staikos said. He said the refurbishment will also provide improved facilities for a wide range of community groups that use the centre. “The Rene Anderson Complex is well used by a whole host of local groups including the girl guides, playgroups, Zumba classes, dog training and more,” Cr Staikos said. “Council is proud to invest in upgrading local facilities that help bring people together and create a strong, connected community.” Construction is expected to commence in mid-2018 and Council aims to complete the work in time for the start of term three. During the works, the kindergarten will be temporarily accommodated at the neighbouring Carrum Family and Children Centre.

burden of rising electricity bills by installing over 7,500 street lights with energy-efficient LED globes. Kingston mayor Cr Steve Staikos said council’s $2.9 million investments in the new lights is leading the way in reducing greenhouse emissions and reducing the burden of increasing energy costs on ratepayers. “This initiative will replace the majority of Kingston.s street lights with energy-efficient lighting that will save energy and drastically reduce our impact on the environment,” Cr Staikos said. “By reducing the money spent on energy bills for lighting the city, council will be able to redirect savings to other important projects to improve services for our residents.” The new lights will: n save 55,000 tonnes of greenhouse gas emissions over 20 years, equivalent to removing more than 600 cars from the road each year n pay for themselves in the next six years, after which savings can be directed into services improve safety and light levels in streets n reduce light pollution and glare. The rollout of energy-efficient LEDs in Kingston will begin in coming weeks and is expected to be completed by July. “Our current streetlights need replacing, so we are taking the opportunity to install the far more energy efficient LED globes that will save money while keeping our public streets well lit,” Cr Staikos said.

THE top 10 fiction and non-fiction books borrowed from Kingston libraries last year reveal local readers have a passion for suspense thrillers and healthy cooking. Kingston Council revealed library members are thrill seekers when deciding to pick up a book. The top 10 fiction titles borrowed in 2017 were: n The Dry by Jane Harper n Night School by Lee Child n The Fix by David Baldacci n The Good People by Hannah Kent n Truly Madly Guilty by Liane Moriarty n The Wrong Side of Goodbye by Michael Connelly n The Mistress by Danielle Steel n 16th Seduction by James Patterson n Chaos by Patricia Cornwell n A Distant Journey by Di Morrissey The mayor Cr Steve Staikos said: “Kingston’s nine libraries offer an incredible service to the community. In addition to providing a wealth of books, magazines and digital items for loan, local libraries are also key community hubs. They host thousands of people of all ages throughout the year who gather together for a wide range of activities to help build community connection and literacy skills.” The top 10 non-fiction titles borrowed from Kingston libraries in 2017 were: n The Barefoot Investor by Scott Pape After by Nikki Gemmell n Gut: the inside story of our body’s most under-rated organ by Giulia Enders n Working Class Boy by Jimmy Barnes

100 YEARS AGO THIS WEEK...

Crackdown on youths with firearms Compiled by Brodie Cowburn IN consequence of numerous complaints regarding youths armed with pea rifles, shooting indiscriminately at windows, railway signals and stock, Const. Ryan proceeded, on Monday evening, to Carrum Downs and Seaford. In the vicinity of a swamp near Seaford on which a number of wild ducks were swimming, the const. found four youths. One had a shot gun and each of the others had a pea rifle. As the lads were all under 18 years of age the const. seized the rifles and the culprits will appear at Frankston Court on 11th inst. on a charge of carrying pea rifles while under the age of 18 years. This is an offence under the Police Offences Act. *** AT 9 o’clock on the morning of 19th January, Mr Friend, solicitor, of Warragul, who was spending a holiday at Frankston, reported to the Frankston police, by telephone, that his son’s bicycle had been stolen at about 7am that day, from near a motor shed where it had been left, near Sweet-water Creek. At 10am. the same day Constable Farley found a boy in possession of the stolen machine on the Heights at Frankston. The lad will be brought before the Children’s Court. *** ON the 18th January Messrs Keast Bros. produce store, at Frankston, was visited by a thief who got safely away with a cash bag containing notes, cheques and silver to the value of

over £38. Detective Britt, of the Criminal Investigation Branch, visited Frankston and made inquiries into the matter without success. On Thursday, 31st January, Constable Ryan interviewed a boy named Edward Osborne, employed at Dean’s store. Eventually the boy admitted his guilt and the police recovered, in different places in the scrub, sums of money totalling over £26. The boy was charged with larceny, and will appear before Frankston Children’s Court on 11th inst. *** THREE boys, visitors to Frankston, had a narrow escape from drowning on Thursday. It appears that they took a dinghy a few yards from shore to dive from, but the strong easterly rapidly blew them out to sea. When rescued, they had drifted out about five miles, and were in an exhausted condition. The rescue was most opportune, and the lads are now none the worse for their adventure. *** AN interesting demonstration of lifesaving was given by members of the “Gazeka” and “Stretcher” camps at the Frankston pier on Monday afternoon. A large crowd of interested spectators assembled, and the different methods of life-saving were watched with keen interest. In the morning instruction was given to a number of local and visiting ladies and gentlemen on the beach and judging by the interest displayed by those taking part the newly formed branch of the Royal Life-saving Society should soon have

some very useful members. *** THE picnic in aid of the Red Cross, held in Recreation Ground at Tyabb on Monday last proved a most successful and enjoyable function. Perfect weather conditions prevailed, and a large number of residents assembled at the rendezvous at the appointed time. Races for the children, arranged by Secretary C. M’Kirdy and a strong committee, were keenly contested, and the little ones appeared to thoroughly enjoy themselves. *** A DEPUTATION from the Mornington Junction Progress Association waited on the Railway commissioners on Wednesday last, to ask that the name of Mornington Junction be changed to Irvine. The deputation, which was introduced by Hon A. Downward consisted of Cr W. J. Oates, Mr Hawker, sec. of the association, Messrs Dicker and Marshall; and Cr Flannagan (Mornington Shire). *** AN accident, which might easily have been attended with more serious results, occurred at Frankston on Wednesday. It appears that Mrs Johnston, of Langwarrin, and her daughter-in-law, were driving in a spring cart, and when turning into Playne street from Wedge street, too sharp a turn was made, with the result that the vehicle turned completely over, and the occupants were precipitated into the roadway. Mr. Gamble, who was working in his shop close by, heard the crash, and he

and his son secured the horse, which was still attached to the vehicle. They then sent the. two ladies to Dr Atkinsons surgery. Mrs Johnson senr. was afterwards sent to the Melbourne Hospital. Her daughter-in-law luckily escaped with a few bruises and a severe shaking. The horse was not injured, but both shafts of the cart were broken. *** SERGEANT Bolitho, recruiting officer, who has been stationed for the past 12 months in the Bendigo district has been transferred to the Peninsula, and his head quarters will be at Frankston. *** TO The Hermit Who died recently at Frankston. Pilgrim, view this leafy dell, View the Captain hermit’s cell, And if you love the rustic scene, And love to court the muse serene; If virtue to your soul be dear, And sometimes melancholy’s tear, And you view this place around As if t’were consecrated ground. The pious Hermit here retired, With love of solitude inspired; He loved the scene of his retreat, This smiling place to him was sweet; And here he sought for hallowed rest To calm the sorrows of his breast, And resignation with a smile His tear of grief would oft beguile, Would soothe to peace his tranquilage In this romantic hermitage. A.H THORNELL, Somerville. *** ON Wednesday last Cr W. J. Oates interviewed the Railway Commission-

ers with reference to their promise, made on the annual visit of inspection to Frankston, to have the approach of the Frankston station improved. Cr Oates pointed out that Frankston was a growing town, and was improving all round, and the station approach gave visitors a bad impression. The commissioners agreed and again promised that if funds were available, the necessary works would be carried out. *** THERE was only a small attendance at the meeting advertised for the purpose of forming a branch of the Royal Life Saving Society at Franston, which was held in the hall on Friday evening last. It was decided to form a branch of the society, and the following officers were elected :—President, Cr W. J. Oates; vice President, Mr J. D. Jennings ; Secretary, Mr Laslett; Treasurer, Mr W. W Young. *** DEATH has removed a very well known and highly esteemed resident of Springhill in the person of Mr William Fleming, who died at the ripe age of 75 years at his residence, “Blairgowrie” Mr Fleming who has been a colonist for over 60 years, was born in Scotland Shortly after coming to the colony he settled in the Springhill district and there he married his wife, who survives him, as do their family of five daughters and three sons. *** From the pages of the Mornington Standard, 2 February 1918

THE MEANING OF EXISTENCE... AND OTHER SHORT STORIES

The Kanye West Stuffed Bear Calamity By Stuart McCullough KANYE West – if you’re reading this – please accept my heartfelt apology. I meant no harm. At no time did I intentionally set out to cause you any distress or discomfort. Things just seemed to turn out that way. When I look back on this whole stinking mess, I can honestly say that my actions were wholly without malice. There’s no one to blame but fate. Granted, I should have intervened sooner. I arrived home from work; tired and distracted. I could see the dog was wrestling with a stuffed toy bear and did not give it a first, much less second, thought. I assumed – wrongly as it turns out – that this stuffed toy was something my wife had picked up from a second hand store for the dog. There is no way I could have known that the stuffed toy bear belonged to you. In many respects, it’s just an ordinary toy bear. It has brown fur, big friendly eyes and a stitched mouth. I’m sure you could easily replace it. Push comes to shove we could always zip over to Southland to drop by ‘Build A Bear’ together. You could totally pimp that bear if you wanted. Diamonds for eyes, golden grill for teeth and a little trimmed beard, just like yours. You’d forget your old bear in no time.

PAGE 10

I appreciate it’s easier said than done. Doubtless, you have quite a sentimental attachment to your bear and the very idea of trying to replace him causes you more pain than I can imagine. Fair enough. I once lost my Myki card and had to get a new one, only to find the old

Chelsea Mordialloc Mentone News 7 February 2018

one down behind the wardrobe. I’m not saying that it’s exactly the same, but I think I understand where you’re coming from. There was, of course, a moment when the penny dropped. Rest assured, Kanye, this was no normal-sized piece of

pre-decimal loose change. This was a gargantuan, super-sized penny that was larger than a hubcap that fell to the ground with all the force of a malfunctioning satellite. Suffice to say, this piece of small change was so large that it didn’t leave so much as a dent as it did a crater. Yes, indeed, this penny didn’t drop; it came hurtling out of the sky. And when that thing struck the earth’s surface, I felt overwhelmed by a wave of nausea. As I watched the dog throw the bear around, I realized that I’d seen it before. It was on the cover of your second album, ‘Late Registration’. It’s a picture of doors opening as a wary looking bear looking cautiously through. No doubt, he was on the lookout for a forty-kilo Bernese Mountain dog, not realizing that the grisly fate he so feared would be fulfilled some fourteen years later in Australia. In retrospect,

it all seems so obvious. ‘Late Registration’ contains the track ‘Gold Digger’ which I now believe to be a reference to my dog. Granted, Fozzie is yet to dig up anything as valuable as gold, but she sure does like to dig. It’s as if your stuffed toy bear had been haunted by a vision of the future. I wish I could say that my dog had been kind to your bear. But I can’t. If I’m to be frank (and whilst I’m being frank, rest assured, you can still be Kanye), the dog has been whole-heartedly committed to ripping your bear’s head clean from its little stuffed shoulders. I guess this means that you are I are finally in a feud. Somehow, I knew this day would eventually come; that we’d eventually become each other’s nemesis. I’m surprised it took this long. But, Kanye, we don’t have to engage in something so predictable as a rap feud. There’s nothing quite so boring as two artists releasing songs that slag each other off. How mundane. It’s the kind of thing that bores the music-loving people senseless. We’re both semi-reasonable people, capable of rising above this little misunderstanding and getting on with our lives. Or, at least, I hope we are. Given that I’m the one who perpetrated the wrong, I suppose it’s up to me to make

amends. As you’re a hugely successful rapper, I’m not entirely sure how best to do that. Card? Flowers? A box of Cadbury’s Milk Tray? It chills the blood to think of all the wonderful rappers who’d still be with us today if they’d only be willing to offer their adversaries a Fudge Duet or Hazelnut Swirl. There’s no way Biggie and Tupac would have been knocked off if their enemies had been chewing on an Orange Truffle. Perhaps you and your wife could come over for dinner? I could persuade the dog to dig up the toy bear and we could then re-bury it in the back yard with all the dignity the occasion deserves. Friday suits us. We usually order fish and chips on Friday and I’m prepared to go all out to impress you and Kim. If she wants chicken nuggets, then I’m prepared to swallow my pride (although not the nuggets themselves) and order them. Pardon, Kanye. My wife has just told me that the bear was hers. Apparently, it was given to her as a child. She’s unable to explain how it ended up on the cover of your album. Perhaps you could shed some light? You’ll be pleased to know that I’ve said nothing to the dog about any of this. It was, I thought, more than she could bear. stuart@stuartmccullough.com

Baxter still in with a sniff PROVINCIAL

By IT Gully THEY say that a week can be along time in sport. Just one match ago in MPCA Provincial Cricket, Baxter appeared to be a long shot of making this year’s final series. Fast forward a match and Baxter is now the only team outside of the top bracket to be any chance of breaking in. That comes on the back of a demolition job on Pearcedale who would have been confident of getting the 191 runs needed for victory. Baxter’s bowling attack shared in the glory boasting five wicket takers in Pearcedale’s innings of 129. Ben Brittain was the pick of Baxter’s bowlers with 2/14 while Dale Irving took 2/19 and Chamara Sattambi helped himself to 2/27. Pearcedale skipper Kaine Smith was the standout with the bat with an unbeaten 50, while Shayne Gillings was next best for 27. Langwarrin made light work of Sorrento on Saturday. Starting the day chasing 262 for victory, Sorrento was cheaply rolled for just 100. Given Jed Falck made 54 off his own

bat, it would be hard to disagree with the fact that the Sorras were pathetic. Leigh Paterson started the rot for the Kangas and finished with 4/16 off ten overs. However it was Matt Prosser who again stood out from the rest snaring 4/9 off just 4.2 overs. This goes with his 54 runs opening the batting last weekend. How Prosser was overlooked for the country week team is still an eyebrow raiser as supported by social media following the squad announcement last week. The game between Peninsula Old Boys and Mt Eliza was set to be a thriller on Saturday when POB resumed at 3/50, chasing 152 for victory. However the game was nothing but a fizzer with Lyle House tearing through the Old Boys batting line up, bowling 24.3 overs for a return of 5/38. Chris McDonough was also back for the Mounties picking up 3/32 off 18 overs. Tom La Brooy was the highest run getter for POB with 39. As predicted Mornington made light work of Crib Point bowling out the Magpies for 143. Defending 208 Mornington was always in the box seat to win the match. Matt Foon was again the start for the doggies taking 4/29 off 17 overs, while Michael Heib helped himself to 3/40.

Islanders smash fangless Pythons PENINSULA

By IT Gully LONG Island stepped up to the plate when it needed, steam rolling Pines in impressive fashion in MPCA Peninsula Cricket on Saturday. The Islanders started the day defending a modest total of just 154, however its bowling attack came to the fore, all of them contributing to the wicket tally. Greg Lamb was at his brilliant best snaring 4/18 off 12 overs while Stuart Swift took 2/15 and Andrew Tweddle picked up 2/19. Nick Wilcox finished unbeaten for Pines on 20. The only other batsman to score double figures was Jarred Coad with 13. Main Ridge, despite resuming one wicket down against Delacombe Park, still would have fancied its chances of reaching and passing the Parkers 197. However yet another batting collapse saw the Ridge rolled for just 136 in 87 overs.

Ricky Ramsdale, who topped scored for the Parkers with the bat, was also the pick of the bowlers claiming 5/41 off 26 overs. Keeper-batsman Ed Aarons top scored for the Ridge with 44. Flinders successfully defended its 9/207 against Somerville, winning by 28 runs. The Eagles lasted 75.3 overs, scoring 179. Leigh Lowry (52) and Andrew West (27) gave the Eagles a slight sniff but Flinders bowling attack proved too strong in the end. Matt Burns was the best of the Sharks bowlers with 3/40 off 24.3 overs while Max Royal also picked up three wickets and Dwayne Field took 2/35. In the final game of the round as predicted Red Hill easily defended its 7/313. Moorooduc could only manage 150 in reply off 48 overs. Shamith Kannangara top scored for the Ducs with 24. With the ball Simon Dart was the best of the bowlers with 3/24.

By IT Gully SEAFORD made tough work of winning its MPCA District game against Rye. However that was predicted given Seaford started day two of the match reeling at 4/42. David Anderson (28) and Dean Polson with an unbeaten 67 saved the day for Seaford, getting to a match winning total of 178 in just 57 overs. Andrew Dunn was the best of Rye’s bowlers, bowling 23 overs for a return of 3/72. Hastings deserved to celebrate on

Saturday night and it did so with a 37 run victory over Mt Martha. Isuru Dias was masterful for the Blues sending down 32.2 sensational overs and picking up a match winning 7/44. Kade Bendle was the pick of the Red’s batters with 35 while Kane Hawkins was next best with 34. As predicted last week Seaford Tigers successfully picked up an outright victory over Rosebud. After bowling out Rosebud for 77 in the first innings the Tigers quickly smashed 3/183. When it came to bat again Rosebud fared a little better in it’s second in-

nings but was still bowled out for 106. Matty Roach was the pick of the Tiger’s bowlers with 5/26 while Jack Brooking took 4/34. Seaford Tigers required just three runs for the outright, which it picked up on the fifth delivery of the innings. Baden Powell fell agonisingly close to beating Heatherhill on Saturday falling 15 runs short. Hill’s star Matt Maugher was the key to the Hill’s victory, picking up 4/94 off 25 overs. Brad Mur was next best with the ball with 3/36. The Braves scored 221 in reply to the Hill’s 236.

Pandas, Hoppers still at the top SUB-DISTRICT

By IT Gully DROMANA and Boneo maintain their positions at the top of the MPCA Sub District ladder after impressive victories on Saturday. Dromana’s victory was more profound given that it picked up maxi-

mum points against Tyabb (20). Dromana resumed on the second day with 4/115 chasing Tyabb’s first inning score of 128. Jed Savage went on to make 71 and Jack Fowler 51 while Jeff Bluhm scored a handy 41 at the bottom of the innings, this all helped Dromana to a score of 236.

Tyabb just needed to bat the rest of the afternoon to avoid an outright loss, however it was rolled for just 85. Fowler snared 4/33 off 9.3 overs while Jye Voelkl took 4/26 giving him seven wickets for the innings. Boneo went within one wicket of beating Tootgarook in an outright. Boneo replied with 143 to Tootga-

rook’s first innings of 88 and then had them 9/88 in their second innings, falling agonisingly close. Carrum was a lot luckier against Carrum Downs. Defending 9/234 the Lions bowled out Carrum Downs for 43 and 108 – a hiding in anyone’s language. Corey Hand took 7 wickets for

the match while Brett Moulten also picked up seven wickets across the two innings. In the final matches Skye defended its 171, restricting Balnarring to 143 while Frankston YCW’s 284 was too much for Ballam Park bowled out for 93.

Five-star Mornington, Skye eye duo SOCCER

By Craig MacKenzie MORNINGTON won its fifth Steve Wallace Memorial Cup on Saturday and will use its success as a springboard for a tilt at the State 1 South-East championship and an NPL berth. It was the sixth staging of the annual charity event which is a celebration of the local game and honours Stephen William Wallace, Langwarrin life-member and former club president, committeeman, coach, player and Bayside League referee who died on 19 July 2011 at the age of 54. The tournament had its fair share of controversy centring on disputed refereeing decisions and an argument over which sides should play their semi-final on the better of the two pitches in use. A coin toss settled the pitch dispute and Mornington won its semi 2-0 against Baxter. It loomed as a David and Goliath affair but Baxter showed enough interpassing and defensive skills to suggest that the massive squad revamp overseen by new coach Francis Beck could pay dividends in State 4 South this year. Matt Morgan, Tim Lee, Joe Iline, Owen Kilner, Heath Goss and James Foster were superb for Baxter and it took a disputed refereeing decision in the second half for the deadlock to be broken and swing the contest firmly in Mornington’s favour. A ball played in from the right found Mornington striker Wayne Gordon sliding in to convert at the far post but the linesman’s flag was up for offside. The referee awarded the goal much to the chagrin of former Baxter coach Roy Kilner. “That’s two years in a row Mornington have done this to us,” bemoaned Kilner. “In last year’s semi there was six minutes of injury time which is amazing in a game of 15-minute halves then this year the ref doesn’t even bother consulting his linesman. Unbelievable.” Langwarrin overcame a plucky Frankston Pines 5-4 on penalties in the other semi after scores were locked at

1-1 at the end of 30 minutes. So the stage was set for the final and we all knew that contests between these sides were anything but charitable. Langy had the better of the first half with a long-range Lewis Foster drive and a Keegan Guy attempt stretching its opponent. Gordon was injured in the 12th minute and had to be helped off. Eight minutes into the second period Guy’s cross from the right was headed wide by Sam Klepac who repeated the dose four minutes later following a long throw by Dylan Kilner. The decisive moment came in the 15th minute of the half when Mornington broke quickly with Sammy Orritt sent clear but triallist Langy keeper Josh Dorron saved with his feet. The rebound fell to Mornington’s teenage English import Josh Griggs and the 19-year-old’s sweetly struck volley nestled neatly in the top far corner of the net. In the build-up to the winning goal Langy sweeper Luke Burgess had been felled but play was waved on and before the restart Langy boss Gus Macleod was on the pitch arguing in vain with the referee. At the aftermatch presentation Jameson was a gracious winner thanking the Wallace family and Baxter for staging the tournament and wishing Langy all the best as the first local club to reach NPL status.

WANTED

He also placed much importance on the day’s success and the effect it would have on his squad. “We want to win everything we play in because we want to create a winning attitude and do that as early as we can,” said Jamieson. “I told the lads after the final that they’d done well because it’s tough playing five games in the one day but we wanted to create a winning culture and we started that today. “I was pleased for young Josh who knows that he’s got a bit of work to do to force his way into a pretty good line-up but we like him and he’s talented. “We play Knox on Wednesday night up at Knox and I’ll probably take a big squad up there but on Saturday morning we play Bentleigh Greens at Bentleigh and that will be a big test for us.” Steve Elliott and English recruit Max Etheridge are expected to be in the squad for the Bentleigh Greens hitout. It’s clear that Jamieson has added pace to his line-up and Mornington will have a new look in 2018. Welsh recruit Curtis Hutson is quick and skilful and looks certain to make a major impact. “Yeah we’re set up a little bit differently this year,” said Jamieson. “We’ve signed some boys with pace and we transition a lot quicker. “We’re still on the lookout for another player but just the one.”

Bayside

Gordon is believed to be the only member of the first team squad yet to agree terms this year. However the former Workington Reds, Newcastle Blue Star, Gretna and Albion Rovers striker is expected to resolve the impasse shortly. Among the large crowd at Saturday’s event was injured Langy striker Liam Baxter who recently was announced as one of the club’s two NPL visa players for 2018. The former Inverness Caledonian Thistle player joined Langy last season from NPL2 outfit Goulburn Valley Suns and was one of five players in the mix for the two visa spots eventually getting the nod along with midfielder Paul Speed. “I was absolutely delighted to stay but I didn’t think it was going to happen for a while,” said Baxter. “The club has done a lot for me. They’ve taken me down (from Shepparton) and they’ve sorted me out with a house and a car and stuff so I’ve got a lot of loyalty to them.” So now he can focus on spearheading Langwarrin’s first NPL foray. “I want to get 20 goals this season and I want to push that barrier. “I think we’ll go out to win every game and see how far we can go. “Obviously Dandy City will be the favourites but I’d like to think we can give them a good go – top four I’d say, hopefully.” Here are all the scores from Saturday’s Wallace Cup round-robin matches: Langwarrin 2 Strikers 0, Mornington 5 Seaford 1, Casey Comets 0 Baxter 1, Frankston Pines 1 Skye 0, Seaford 0 Frankston Pines 2, Strikers 1 Casey Comets 0, Skye 0 Mornington 3, Baxter 1 Langwarrin 2, Langwarrin 2 Casey Comets 0, Mornington 1 Frankston Pines 1, Strikers 0 Baxter 1, Skye 1 Seaford 0. For State 3 South-East title aspirant Skye United the weekend produced a mixed bag. Brett Heskins has called off his return to the game but veterans Cam Leopold

and Chris Driver played for Skye in the Wallace Cup and appeared to come through the day-long event unscathed. Leopold is a former Pines, Langwarrin, Mornington and Strikers player while ex-Langy star Driver has played a World Cup qualifier for his native Mauritius against South Africa. In other news the prophets of doom hovering over Southern United may be forced to rethink their gloomy scenarios for Aaron Myatt’s squad this year. “The talk about us at the moment is that we don’t have anyone but we do and I’m quite happy going in under the radar,” said Myatt. The first-year NPL senior coach has just signed 17-year-old Natasha Reiri from Alamein and he has high hopes for the attacking midfielder. “She might be inexperienced but she’s ready for a senior challenge. “We’ll have the youngest squad in the comp but I’m comfortable with that because at the end of the day it’s all about developing players that are going to be good enough to go higher. “I’ve got 13 good players in the squad and I’m on the lookout for the three players I need to finish it off. “I’m having a chat with a player at Heidelberg who is a very good defender but she’s also versatile. “I’m also talking to a No 9 from the State Leagues and I’ve got a girl from Papua New Guinea coming down on Wednesday. “She’s a forward and she’s lightning quick, really explosive.” Myatt faced a huge task in rebuilding a squad ravaged by player defections to Bayside United but he’s stuck to his guns and is eyeing the season in a positive manner. “I’m confident that once we reach that halfway point (of the season) no-one will want to play us especially from that top four because we’ll start taking points from them. “We may take some hits this year but we’re building something and we’re going to be super competitive down the track.”
