CHELSEA’S Bicentennial Skate Park has a new skating area amid a $1.4 million upgrade. Young Jackson Purtell, 5, was among the first skateboarders to show off skateboarding moves at the improved skate park. See Page 4. Picture: Yanni

Promenade under sky rail Neil Walker neil@baysidenews.com.au A PLAN to pump $50 million into Carrum as part of the separation of road and rail at Station St on the Frankston line was announced by the state government at the weekend. Premier Daniel Andrews visited Carrum on Sunday to unveil designs for a promenade to be built under elevated rail between McLeod Rd and Eel Race

Rd alongside new “parkland and picnic places”. Five properties along the Nepean Highway will be compulsorily acquired by the Labor state government to build the promenade from the highway to the beach near a new train station at Carrum. “We’re getting on with revitalising Carrum – transforming this bayside community into a modern, vibrant, well-connected suburb for everyone to enjoy,” Mr Andrews said in a statement.

“This is a huge win for the local community. We’re not only getting rid of dangerous and congested level crossings – we’re creating new open space, parkland and picnic areas just a stone’s throw from the beach.” The Premier’s prediction of a win for the community is not shared by some residents who live near the Frankston line who are campaigning against any form of ‘sky rail’ in bayside suburbs. Labor MP Sonya Kilkenny won the marginal seat of Carrum by just 0.7 per

Cnr Springvale Rd & Wells Rd, Chelsea Heights PH: 9773 4453 www.chelseaheightshotel.com.au 12360543-DJ31-17

cent at the 2014 state election. The next state election will be held in November next year. Ms Kilkenny stood alongside the Premier at Sunday’s announcement. “This is a once in a lifetime opportunity. I’m excited to be involved in this project and am looking forward to delivering great outcomes for our local community,” she said in a statement. “We will continue to work closely with local residents and businesses as we deliver this massive project.”

A 900-metre long raised rail bridge will be built over McLeod Rd and level crossings at Station St, Eel Race Rd and Mascot Ave will be removed. Train stabling at Carrum will be moved to Kananook. Ten level crossings are being removed along the Frankston line from Cheltenham to Frankston as part of a state government project to separate road from rail at level crossings across Victoria. Construction works will mostly begin next year.

Making a difference: Dawn Walterfang, Angela Hunt, Stephanie Thomas-Reindel and Lloyd Thomas celebrate Bonbeach Life Saving Club’s various achievements. Picture: supplied

Lifesavers’ dedication rewarded MEMBERS of the lifesaving and aquatic community from Bonbeach were awarded for their dedication to saving lives at the 14th annual Life Saving Victoria Award of Excellence on Saturday 29 July. More than 280 guests, including Victorian lifesavers, aquatic industry members and dignitaries, attended the gala event. Bonbeach Life Saving Club collected three of the four major awards with Lloyd Thomas from Bonbeach LSC being awarded the John Wishart Memorial Medal as Lifesaver of the Year for his ‘outstanding contribution to lifesaving’. Bonbeach LSC was also presented with Outstanding Achievement of the Year for their 2017 CALD Surf Rescue Certificate Program, the Volunteer As-

sessor of the Year which was awarded to Stephanie Thomas Reindel and the Volunteer of the Year award which went to Dawn Walterfang. President Certificates were presented to Joshua Ritchie-Crichton from Gunnamatta SLSC and Kieran Hanley from Rosebud and McCrae LSC for helping save the life of a man who suffered a heart attack at a cricket match earlier this year. Samantha Howe from Point Leo SLSC was named Athlete of the Year with Tamara Brawn, also from Point Leo SLSC, collecting the award for Competition Official of the Year. Greg Schmidt of Mentone SLSC was the recipient for the Nipper Program Volunteer of the Year, and Mount Martha LSC was awarded the Patrol Efficiency Club of the Year.

Portsea SLSC also collected awards with Rebecca Gould earning the Membership and Leadership Development Service Award and Dr Natalie Hood earning a Life Membership. Life Saving Victoria president Tom Mollenkopf paid tribute to the nominees and winners for their ongoing commitment to the lifesaving movement. “This special event recognises and celebrates the exceptional achievements our dedicated volunteers, staff, and members of the broader aquatic community make throughout the year,” he said. “Everyone in the organisation takes great pride in the work they carry out, and this is a wonderful way to acknowledge those who go above and beyond to contribute to all aspects of lifesaving in Victoria.”

KINGSTON Council is calling for new and improved tree planting along Nepean Highway to try to make the transport corridor “safer and more attractive”. Kingston mayor Cr David Eden said council is seeking VicRoads support for the plan to include additional native trees to beautify the busy road. “We’re keen to plant more natives and build on existing plantings — such as the iconic Norfolk Island pine trees at Moorabbin and Canary Island palm trees in Mordialloc — to build pride in our city,” Cr Eden said. “Increasing the numbers of native trees, and better maintenance of the existing greenery along the Nepean Highway, has the potential to make the strip a lot safer, and more attractive, for the community.” Council will prepare a draft plan on enhancement of the trees along the Nepean Highway following a motion passed at a recent council meeting. “Our plan will outline ways to safely boost the number of trees — with a preference for suitable native and local foreshore species while avoiding the removal of healthy and mature trees in the area.” “In addition to the environmental benefits, suitable indigenous plants can improve road safety by screening out oncoming headlights and providing a barrier to prevent cars crossing the centre median,” Cr Eden said.

Avoid the shallows RECREATIONAL boat operators should take care not to run aground in shallows at the entrance of Patterson River after unseasonal conditions increased natural sand movements. Parks Victoria has warned vessel operators to “navigate with extreme cau-

tion” and check water depths, weather and tides before setting out on the water. “The latest survey has indicated water depths at the entrance of Patterson River have reduced significantly in a short period of time due to recent conditions in Port Phillip,” Parks Victoria acting regional director Victor Teoh said. “Some areas of the entrance have registered depths as low as -0.7m (chart datum).” A dredge vessel, currently working at Portarlington, will make its way to Patterson River to dredge more sand at the river mouth soon. See parks.vic.gov.au or call 13 19 63 for more information.

First ‘tech fest’ THE Mornington Peninsula and Frankston’s first entrepreneurship and technology festival starts on Friday with a business breakfast and a three-day “hackathon”. The event is a joint venture between the technology business hub Frankston Foundry, Mornington Peninsula Shire, Frankston Council and sponsors including the state government’s start-up investment body LaunchVic. Kate Gittings of LaunchVic said the south east region’s first hackathon, PeninsulaHACK, aimed to “build solutions for regional problems such as high youth unemployment and job availability”. The three-day hackathon, 6pm Friday to 6pm Sunday 11-13 August, will see about 150 entrepreneurs, businesses and community leaders from Frankston, the peninsula and beyond “discuss and explore opportunities around the gig economy and the future of work”. About 15 teams will pitch their ideas to a panel of judges, with winning teams taking a share of $6000 prize money. Details and bookings: peninsulahack. com.au

Police patrol Tools stolen in early morning

TRADIES’ vehicles in Dingley, Chelsea Heights, Waterways and Aspendale Gardens were robbed of tools and equipment in the early hours of Monday 7 August. Sergeant Peter Milligan, of Kingston police, said thieves raided eight utes and trailers, stealing $23,900 in power tools, including drills, saws, ratchet guns, planers, multi-tools and gauges. Despite a loud banging noise heard during one of the raids, no one got up to investigate, with one resident

thinking it was the wind. The tradies’ vehicles were parked in driveways as well as on streets outside their houses. Sergeant Milligan said some of the tradies may not have realised they had been robbed until they fronted up for work that morning. “Even though all the vehicles were locked the thieves forced their way inside to steal the items,” he said. “We urge tradies to be vigilant and to park their vehicles out of street view behind locked gates and securely locked. “They should take pictures of their tools and record their serial numbers

and keep those serial numbers in a separate place.” Police will make inquiries at second-hand dealers and pawn shops in the hope of recovering the tools.

Burglary charges A HEATHCOTE man, 38, has been charged with 23 burglaries on businesses in Carrum Downs, Frankston South, Hastings, and Somerville since 10 July. Mornington Peninsula Detective Sergeant Steve Read said the man was arrested at a friend’s house in Somerville last week. He was also charged over five bail

breaches. The man allegedly targeted electrical supplies, hairdressers, radiologist and plumbing supplies – and five dental surgeries. CCTV and “police methodology” was used to establish his identity. He was remanded to appear at Frankston Magistrates’ Court next month.

Echo Taskforce arrests A CARRUM Downs man, 26, was among five people arrested by Casey detectives, 6am, Tuesday 25 July, on multiple warrants targeting outlaw motorcycle gangs. Drugs and weapons were seized at

various addresses in the raids held in conjunction with the Echo Taskforce. Two Hampton Park men, aged 20 and 21, were arrested as well as a 24-year-old Hampton Park man – arrested at Cranbourne North – who is a known Comancheros bikie gang associate. An 18-year-old woman was also arrested at the same address. Frankston station commander Senior Sergeant Michael Lamb said: “Our foot patrols are having a real impact on public safety. The response from traders and the public has been very positive. “Our commitment to these increased foot patrols will continue.”

Arrests at station ‘outstanding’ result OFFICERS from Victoria Police’s transit safety division joined forces last Tuesday (1 August) with Frankston police, Sheriff’s officers and Metro Trains officers to target anti-social behaviour at Frankston train station and the bus precinct. Over the course of the day as part of Operation Rickman, police issued 92 infringements, five traffic internments and arrested 15 people wanted on outstanding warrants. Two people were arrested for carrying weapons. Sheriff’s officers executed 311 warrants totalling in just under $130,000

20 TO

in outstanding fines. Inspector Martin Hardy, Local Area Commander for South Transit Safety Division said: “Operation Rickman is just one great example of law enforcement agencies working together to ensure community safety and security on the public transport system.”

Crafty tipple: Kevin and Dan Dainton toast the success of their family founded brewery in Carrum Downs.

Craft beer the top brew A CARRUM Downs brewery is now firmly on the map for drinkers seeking a top drop. The Dainton Family Brewery’s Cherrywood Smoked Baltic Porter was named Champion Australian Craft Beer at last week’s Craft Beer Awards held in Adelaide. The Cherrywood Smoked Baltic Porter saw off competition from more than 680 beers from 118 breweries to take top honours after also winning its Champion Porter/Stout category on the night. Co-founder and brewer Dan Dainton said the judges said it was simply “the best beer they tasted”. “It has a unique style. We used a lot of really good ingredients and have got to know our system and what we can do so when the beer came

out we were really happy with it.” He said it was “really surprising but really nice” for the porter, described as “like a chocolate cigar”, to be crowned top craft beer at the Craft Beer Awards. The brewer, who established the Dainton Family Brewery at Carrum Downs two years ago with his father Kevin, said more of the award-winning beer will be brewed but existing supplies are now dwindling as news of the award spills out. “It’s definitely highly drinkable even at nearly 9 per cent [alcohol by volume].” n See daintonbrewing.com.au for the brewery’s opening hours and beers.

Dolphins are back from the deep

Road to recovery: Rahni Mackie awaits treatment at Frankston Hospital last week. She and her mother, Margaret, are hoping to make contact with the ‘good Samaritan’ who comforted her. Picture: Gary Sissons

Kindness of stranger eases the pain Stephen Taylor steve@baysidenews.com.au A FALL from her bike last week proved painful for a Seaford woman – but the kindness shown by a complete stranger helped make her ordeal bearable. Rahni Mackie, 46, was riding with her dog alongside Kananook Creek when she crashed, breaking her leg in three places and knocking her head on the path, 9.30am, Thursday. A passerby, known only as “Alex”

and aged about 19, ran up to help – and then generously waited for three-quarters of an hour comforting the injured woman, minding her dog – and even called her mum. “He called me and told me what had happened and, when I arrived, he walked Rahni’s bike to the station so that we could collect it later,” Mrs Margaret Mackie, of Chelsea, said. “He was just so lovely. You don’t often hear about that sort of thing happening these days and I was worried we had kept him so long.

“I asked him his name and he said ‘Alex’ and we shook hands. That is all we know about him. Afterwards, he walked to the station and, I suppose, got the train to work.” Mrs Mackie took her daughter by car to Frankston Hospital, where she was awaiting operations on her broken tibia and fibula, Friday. The women would like Alex to contact them so they can thank him for his kind concern. He is asked to call The News, 5973 6424.

FRANKSTON Dolphins will return to the VFL competition next season after having their licence application approved by AFL Victoria. The Dolphins were stripped of their licence in 2016 after the club fell into voluntary administration under a massive debt of more than $1 million. The club has been fighting hard since that day to bring together key people and businesses to put together a strong case to re-enter the competition. Their application was submitted last month and granted on Friday afternoon. The application was spearheaded by former Hawthorn champion and recruiter Gary Buckenara. The pitch to re-enter included 1200 memberships, all sold for $50. The application was also based on the fact that the club would form ‘closer relationships with football clubs across the peninsula’. The truth of the matter is that the Dolphins will only avoid going back to where it came if they fully embrace the MPNFL competition. The MPNFL desperately needs and deserves to have its own VFL side. There are at least 15 players currently playing in the MPNFL who are playing VFL footy right now. The likes of Anthony Bruhn, Tom Baker, Anthony Barry, Sam Fowler, Lachy Wallace, Danny Allsop, BJ Credlin, Mitch LaFontaine and James Freeman are all VFL-listed players at the likes

of Bulldogs, Casey, Collingwood, Richmond and Northern Blues. It makes sense for them to be representing their own VFL team locally. The Stingrays who are not drafted also need a pathway to keep their AFL dream alive. Let’s just hope the club has spent as much time understanding why it got itself into a $1M hole in the first place as it did working on a submission to re-enter – no local club support, no membership, no spectators, no success. The Dolphins need to be a representative of the MPNFL, not an elitest group that works against and alienates local clubs – that’s the previous history of the Frankston Dolphins. It’s time to wipe the slate clean. It should change its name to Peninsula Dolphins, a true reflection of the area it represents. The lack of a VFL Development League next season will support the case to bring the Dolphins and local clubs together. A squad of 35-40 should be selected at the beginning of the year, 22 are then selected each week to represent the Dolphins and the remaining 13-18 go back to their home club every weekend. All of the clubs would support that and more importantly, the people they want to come through the gate to support the Dolphins. Toe Punt

HEARING

Hearing loss link to dementia prevention WITH a constant focus on hearing care, the team at Chelsea Hearing keep up to date with the latest technology and research to offer their clients the best possible service. Audiologist, Cathryn Williams says there has been new research recently published regarding hearing loss and cognitive decline and dementia. “On July 20 The Lancet (one of the most highly regarded medical journals) published “Dementia Prevention, Intervention, and Care”. For the first time, hearing loss has been included as a risk factor for cognitive decline and dementia, and it has been classified as a preventable cause of dementia,” said Ms Williams. “The study identified midlife hearing loss as a modifiable risk factor to dementia, with a 9% reduction if this factor is removed. This was higher than education, hypertension, obesity, smoking, depression, physical inactivity, social isolation and diabetes.” Ms Williams stated it is now recognised that even mild levels of hearing loss increase the long term risk of cognitive decline and dementia. “Fifty-five was the youngest mean age in which presence of hearing loss was shown to increase dementia risk. People with hearing loss from birth, childhood or as young adults are not at increased risk,” she said. “It was noted in the study that only a small percentage of people with hearing loss actually have their hearing tested and treatment

provided. A key message from the study was that interventions including management of hearing loss may have the potential to delay or prevent dementia.” “Where possible, take measures to avoid hearing loss, for example wear earmuffs if you are doing noisy work or musicians’ earplugs if you are playing music or attending concerts. If you think you may have a hearing loss it is important to have your hearing tested, and treatment of hearing loss is recommended,” said Ms Williams. Having a hearing test allows the cause of any hearing loss to be identified and the most suitable treatment recommended. For some people this may include wax removal or medical treatment. Sometimes hearing aids or other amplification can be a good option. Chelsea Hearing is happy to provide an initial hearing test and consultation at no charge for adults. If hearing aids or other amplification is required (eg headphones for the TV), pensioners may be eligible for funding under the OHS voucher program. Chelsea Hearing is at 8 The Strand, Chelsea.

Ultimate Boutique Dentistry FOR over 30 years, Dr John Albery has been putting smiles on the faces of clients across the Mornington Peninsula, and continues with his boutique clinic, Dental Studio 2-Twenty. “With a combination of professional experience and the latest technology, we pride ourselves on providing each and every one of our customers with excellence in restorative and cosmetic dentistry,” says Dr Albery. “With very few exceptions, we can handle all of your dental needs in-house. That means you won’t have to waste time waiting and travelling for a referral. Instead, we provide everything you need in our modern practice and at an affordable price.” With Dental Health Week from August 7 – 12, Dr Albery says it is a great opportunity for education on good oral hygiene, and the effect diet has on our dental health. “Excess sugar in the diet has been blamed for increasing rates of dental decay in children as young as one,” said Dr Albery. “There have been new analyses saying that seven out of 10 packaged goods sold on supermarket shelves contain added sugar and there are a huge number of children that are admitted to hospital due to dental conditions that could be preventable.” Dr Albery says that good sugars are an important part of every person’s

diet like those found naturally in dairy, fruits and vegetables. “There is a big difference between natural sugars and the ones added during manufacturing,” he said. Currently there are calls for greater transparency on added sugar in packaged foods which dentists like Dr Albery support wholeheartedly. “It is things like soft drinks, cakes, pies, ice cream, pastries and process meats that contain the highest amount of added sugars,” he said. This year a Choice report found that if consumers could identify added sugars on food packs they could avoid 26 teaspoons of sugar each day. “If this was the case, the dental health of Australians would show a dramatic improvement,” said Dr Albery. Dental Studio 2-Twenty offers a boutique dental experience, with the latest technology, a brand new surgery, state of the art equipment, and the bonus of three decades of experience treating people. Dr Albery has undertaken advanced training in crown, bridge and implants dentistry, and completed his Advanced Diploma of Myotherapy in Myofascial Acupuncture. He is a founding member of the Australian Society of Dental Aesthetics and a founding member of the Peninsula Headache Clinic.

“As a professional team, we pride ourselves on our excellent customer service, as well as our expertise and state of the art dental technology. When you come to Dental Studio

2-Twenty, you don’t just get the very best in restorative and cosmetic dentistry – you get friendly service, personalised to suit your needs and budget,” says Dr Albery.

Oncology rehabilitation program ONCOLOGY Rehabilitation – do you have a cancer diagnosis or have had treatment for cancer and feeling tired, lack energy and generally feel run down? We would love to see if we can help you. At St John of God Frankston Rehabilitation Hospital, our Oncology Rehabilitation Outpatient program is a 6 week, twice a week program that incorporates information sessions, meditation, tai chi, exercise and hydrotherapy, and it’s individually tailored to you, your needs and your goals. How it might help: The information sessions are interactive and discuss topics that can assist you in your day-to-day life, such as healthy food choices when you aren’t feeling the best, tips on managing stress, how to pace yourself to get through the day, and the benefits of exercise. The meditation session, guided by Rivka, our Occupational Therapist, is a weekly 30-minute session to help you wind down and refocus, which complements the tai chi session that provides whole body movement while concentrating on the correct moves. It is a body and brain workout, so for 30 minutes you cannot think about anything else so it is a great way to reduce tension. Tai chi is also great for balance, posture and breathing. Exercise is an integral part of rehabilitation. Our bodies are meant to move so this session is 60 minutes

of light to moderate exercise with our Exercise Physiologist (EP), Sam. Our EP will assess you prior to starting to gauge your physical ability and find out your goals so he can tailor your exercise regime. Exercise plays an important part in reducing cancer related fatigue and improving our quality of life. Hydrotherapy is new to oncology rehabilitation, but early research shows it is an effective method of exercise. The water is 34 degrees and while the water resistance provide a great workout, we let you float around as part of your ‘cool down’, so it is a very relaxing session. Whilst we encourage everyone to participate, we know hydrotherapy is not for everyone, so an alternative gym session can be provided instead. Sounds pretty good and want to get started? Just ask your specialist or GP for a referral to one of rehabilitation physicians who will complete a medical assessment for you to enter the program; you will then meet Rebecca, our Oncology Rehabilitation Nurse, Sam and Rivka who will guide you through the next 6 weeks. We also cater for patients who need inpatient rehabilitation for those who have goals that are more easily meet with daily intensive therapy. If you have any questions or would like further information, please contact us on 9788 3333 and ask to speak with either Rebecca Nolan or Sam Buchanan.

100 YEARS AGO THIS WEEK...

“Tin kettlers” welcome newlywed Hantons Compiled by Cameron McCullough LAST Wednesday a band of “tin kettlers” went down to give the new bride and bridegroom, Mr and Mrs Hanton, a rousing welcome. The band was very hospitably entertained and a very pleasant evening was spent. *** ALL soldiers will be entertained at afternoon tea in the Hall this afternoon at the conclusion of the speeches in the Park. *** IT is the intention of Councillor Oates to call the ratepayers of the North Riding together at an early date to give a general resume of council matters during his last two terms of office extending over six years. The date will be fixed and notified by advertisement in our next issue. *** MORNINGTON Junction Progress Association (modern day Baxter) The monthly meeting of the above was held on Aug 1st. President - Mr Green (in the chair) Messrs Grant, Harley (V. Roberts, V. Stott, Hawken, McColl, Bowley, Dicker, H Male, Fulton, McCubbin, Marshall, Walsh, Butler, C. Young, Barclay, and Persson. Mr Jackson, secretary of the Co-operative Society at Somerville was also present. After the minutes and correspondence had been disposed of, Mr Marshall, in a very forcible speech, drew attention to the fact that we as a community were being very unfairly treated in respect to Council matters. After every heavy shower people wishing to get to the station from the

east side, have to walk through water up to their boot tip. This, it was felt could not be tolerated any longer and a deputation consisting of Messrs Marshall, Green and Grant, were deputed to wait on the councillors at the Council Chambers and place the matter before them for their urgent consideration. Further council matters were dealt with, viz, redistribution of boundries of shire so that Mornington Junction, would get a better deal. Also the advisability of getting some one to represent us at the Council table. As it was too late to bring a man forward this time, and so as to help that one if necessary at next election, it was moved that a fighting fund be established and a levy of 6d per member per quarter was agreed on. Nominations for candidates to be called for in May of each year. It was moved that a local committee be formed to assist the repatriation committee and bring before them the suitableness of our district for returned soldiers. Tree planting in the streets was then reported on and Arbor Day fixed for August 18th. 35 trees are to be planted this year and named after the soldiers who have enlisted. Mr Roberts gave notice of motion that at next meeting he would move that member’s subscription be 2s 6d. The meeting then closed. A meeting of those present was then held to decide on a new name for the station and post office. The name Mornington Junction being considered unsuitable. 21 names were submitted to the exhaustive ballot of the members

with the result that the name Irvine was chosen. Mr Dicker moved that the name Irvine suggested by the meeting be sent on to the progress association who will take the necessary steps to forward same to the proper quarters. Seconded by Mr Persson and carried. The meeting then closed. *** INSPECTION of Kananook Creek. VISIT BY MINISTER AND ENGINEER. At 10.30 last Thursday morning, Mr Adamson, Minister for Public Works, accompanied by Mr Kermode, the departmental Engineer visited Frankston for the purpose of inspecting Kananook Creek. They were met and conducted round by Crs Oates and Clements, Messrs Mason, Sambell (Shire Engineer) Bradbury and Dr Maxwell. The party worked down from the Mile bridge, inspecting the creek at each street crossing and from Wells street to the mouth. Mr Bradbury & afterwards provided luncheon at the Fernery amidst most charming surroundings. In reply to the vote of thanks, tendered by Crs Oates and Clements, the Minister expressed his sympathy with the residents in their endeavour to improve Frankston and stated that Mr. Kermode would supply a full report for the consideration of the Minister. The latter then returned to the City at 1 p.m. *** SOMERVILLE Red Cross Society. The Jumble Fair held in the Hall on Saturday Aug 4th was most success-

HUGE SHOE SALE

ful. The weather was good after the severe storm on Friday and everything went well without a hitch. The refreshment stall, under the capable management of Miss Barber was one of the most chick ever arranged in the district and its artistic and inviting appearance accounted for the roaring trade, being the largest takings for one day on record. Great praise is due to her band of workers. The product stall under Mrs Jas Murray realized £14. Hoopla by the syndicate with Mr Ted Gomm as “Tote” did a splendid trade, between £5 and £6 being taken without a penny expense. Ice cream and lollies managed by Mesdames White and Coop did a roaring trade. Fancy stall under Mesdames C. Grant and Iles sold all out at something over £5 with only 15s 3d expense. The cake stall managed by Mrs Gault and Misses Goodson and Laura Thornell also was cleared. The total takings being about £40 expenses £9. The President, Mrs Gault and secretary, Mrs G. Shepherd desire to thank all those who donated and assisted at the Fair. 11s 6d was donated to the Fair by a football match held in the park. *** ON Saturday night, 28th July, the Hastings Church of England Girls’ Guild gave a cantana, entitled “Snow White”, in the local Hall. There was a splendid attendance and the girls are to be congratulated on their fine acting and beautiful singing.

Between the acts, songs were rendered by Misses F. Unthank and Matthews ; Messrs Carr and Barber, which were greatly appreciated. Mr Martin moved a vote of thanks to the performers and thanked them for their kindness in coming so far to give their entertainment. Mr White seconded the motion which was carried by acclamation. Mr Porter responded on behalf of the girls. The concert was given in aid of the Patriot’s League Funds which will benefit to the extent of £8. Tea and supper were provided by the lady members of the League. A dance terminated a pleasant evening. *** THE monthly meeting of the Fruitgrowers’ Association was held on Monday night. Mr Keast moved that this Association approach the Post Master General re having the telephone connected with Frankston until nine o’clock on Saturday nights. Mr G Shepherd seconded the motion which was carried. *** LAST Saturday afternoon a football match was played between the Old Buffers and Boys under 21. A very enjoyable game took place and resulted in a win for the seniors. Scores were as follows:–Buffers 5 goals 8 behinds; juniors 2 goals 4 behinds. *** From the pages of the Mornington Standard, 11 August 1917

THE MEANING OF EXISTENCE... AND OTHER SHORT STORIES

Crushed by the Digital Hamster Wheel of the Gods By Stuart McCullough HOW quickly we become dependent. Like a lobster who doesn’t notice as the water heads towards boiling, I had no idea how much danger I was in. For years, I lived without you. It was, I think, a reasonably complete kind of life. I certainly managed to fill my time, more or less. Then we were introduced and everything about my life changed forever. New worlds opened up, galaxies appeared before my eyes and I was enriched beyond measure. How I ached to spend time with you, never suspecting that our connection might be so ….fragile. Netflix, you broke my heart. I didn’t see it coming. For some reason, I assumed that paying for a service meant that it would be forever ready to spring to my attention, serving all my televisual needs. One evening, I deposited myself on the part of the couch the dog was prepared to let me occupy and pointed the super-special remote towards the little magical box that sits on a shelf in the TV cabinet. I pressed ‘enter’ and watched as the thing I personally like to refer to as ‘the thinking wheel’ span and span and span. As I watched, I could almost feel myself travel through time. I knew it was struggling. I suspect it’s no coincidence that the spinning symbol used to indicate struggle so closely resembles a hamster wheel. Indeed, it’s hard not to picture the all-powerful cyber-hamster that must power the entire Netflix operation, its bionic limbs pumping like supercharged pistons as it generates enough power to fire up the new series of Gilmore Girls. But as the wheel kept spinning, it occurred to me that this was a wheel of misfortune. Then it appeared. As plain as the nose on a digital mega-hamster’s face, the screen simply informed me: ‘There is a problem connecting to Netflix – try again later’. What on earth are they talking about? Having grown up in an ‘off’ and ‘on’ kind of world, this new paradigm of ephemeral, unpredictable pleasure is more uncertainty than I can handle. When

they say there’s a ‘problem connecting to Netflix’, what kind of problem are we talking about? Emotional? Existential? Not returning phone calls? Waiting for the wind to die down? Surely, they could be more informative. Then came the invitation that’s more a slap to the head than it was a cause for hope – ‘try again later’. It’s rare that I feel the need to summon up the spirit of Veruca Salt but I think I agree with her in that I want it now, not later. Had I wanted it later, I probably wouldn’t have gone to the trouble to make the dog move over, sitting down and pointing the magic stick at the box before waving it about like Harry Potter’s last wand.

And what, pray tell, do they mean by ‘later’? The time it takes to make a fresh cup of tea? A couple of hours? Next year sometime? No one can say. The whole thing is stricken with uncertainty. And that’s exactly it; there’s no information and no one to ask. It’s all entirely abstract. Perhaps this is what they really mean by ‘virtual reality’. And it’s not as though there’s anyone I can complain to. The world wide web is full people, with nary a soul to speak to. The answer is simple: I must take matters into my own hands and build my own Netflix. If the real one can’t be relied upon, then I must rely on my own raw, naked ingenuity to provide the an-

swer. Granted, my history of ‘DIY’ technological fixes is, at best, pretty patchy. There’s the time I tried to build my own digital alarm clock using an empty cereal packet. That thing saw me turn up late for school for six years running. Or my effort to create my own flux capacitor using a broken food processor. The only thing that travelled through time was my dignity as I regressed a good decade or more. And the less said about my attempt to build my own national broadband network using a bar of soap, some string and half a tube of hundreds and thousands, the better. Suffice to say, the blessed thing is yet to be of any real use. And even if this makes it largely indistinguishable from the actual national broadband network is beside the point – I know I can do better. With Netflix collapsing into the virtual foetal position without any outward sign that it might regain its sense within the foreseeable, I was at a loss. My remote hand - so conditioned to pointing and waving - sat idle. My preferred buttonpushing thumb – which is so muscle-bound that, from a distance, it looks like a bald Arnold Schwarzenegger during his Mr. Universe era but without the lolly bags – wilted on the couch cushion. Instead, I turned to the dog and the dog (whose favourite program is currently Antiques Roadshow) turned to me, at which point we decided to chase each other around the yard until one of us got tired and felt like throwing up. Nausea aside, it’s been ages since I’ve felt so alive. So, Netflix, I’m beginning to re-evaluate our relationship. If you can’t be relied up to work when I need you most, then I’m not sure I can give you my loyalty, much less my undying affection. I realise that I’m probably adding to your already considerable problems. The irony being, of course, that while the magic box was having trouble connecting to Netflix, my connection with Netflix entered a terminal decline. So be it. The dog and I will be outside. stuart@stuartmccullough.com

Without Edwards, Pythons lose their power PENINSULA LEAGUE

By Toe Punt PINES has lost four games on the trot in MPNFL Peninsula Division and is now in danger of missing the top five all together. After sitting a game clear at the top of the table at the midway mark of the season, the Pythons have fallen in a slump, generating the obvious question, ‘is it a case of no Aaron Edwards, no Pines’? While the brainstrust at Pines will have you believe that this isn’t the case, the fact is that Pines has not been able to win a match since the best forward in the game went down with a season-ending knee injury four weeks ago against Langwarrin. On that day against the Kangas, Dale Tedge went to full forward, booted a handful and the Pythons had a strong win. On the back of that, coach Pat Swayne said team structures would stand up and while Aaron was a great player, there were other avenues to explore that could fill the void. We all love Swayne’s optimism, however, we all know that that is just smoke and mirrors. The fact is that the most dominant forward line in the competition is minus arguably the best player in the competition. This leaves the 2016 league MVP Tim Bongetti one out down there. Mornington coach Chris Holcombe said on the RPP Footy Show on Saturday morning that Pines were ‘kidding themselves’ if they believed Edwards not playing wouldn’t have an effect. “He’s a star and they are a much better team with him there. They stretch defences. Of course he’s a massive loss and there’s little point denying it,” Holcombe said. Chelsea coach Brett Dunne agreed. “They’ll need to look at the way they

are using Guy (Hendry) and see if they can push him forward,” Dunne said. “It’s nice to have him playing as a defender but they need him playing forward to help Bongetti,” Dunne said. On Saturday Pines was beaten by Seaford by a goal, which kept Seaford’s finals’ hopes alive. Frankston YCW flexed its muscles and restricted Bonbeach to just five goals on their own turf. The Sharks were held to just one goal in the first half but had a strong

third quarter and found themselves just eight points down at the last change. The Stonecats, with the aid of the breeze, stepped it up a notch in the last and won 10.10 (70) to 5.9 (39). Mt Eliza is also still in the running for a spot in the finals after turning around an ordinary first half to beat Karingal 12.10 (82) to 9.8 (62). The Bulls led by three points at half time before the Redlegs booted 10 goals to six after the change. Karl Lombardozzi was superb for

the winners while Dan Gormley was at his best with three goals. Langwarrin came back to earth with a thud, smashed by EdithvaleAspendale, who are now a game clear in third place. The Kangas were held goalless in the opening half before completely dominating play in the third quarter and booting 5.10 to 3.1. It should have been 10.5. The Eagles slammed on seven last quarter goals through to win 16.13

(109) to 5.18 (48). The Eagles had 12 goal kickers. Mornington booted four goals to one in the last quarter to beat Chelsea by a goal, 11.16 (82) to 10.16 (76). Warwick Miller was a star for the Dogs again with four goals while Dave Willett booted four also for the Gulls. Mornington is on the look out for a new coach after Chris Holcombe told the club he couldn’t commit the time next season.

NEPEAN LEAGUE

By Toe Punt SOMERVILLE is no longer in the race for MPNFL Nepean Division finals after being overrun by a fast finishing Dromana on Saturday. With both teams being locked together on 32 points on the ladder, along with Red Hill, it was always going to be near impossible for the loser of Saturday’s game to make it. The Eagles have now fallen a game behind Dromana and Red Hill with just two games remaining. While Somerville is out of the equation, the race is hotting up between Red Hill (fifth place) and Dromana (sixth). There is less than one percent separating the sides on the ladder. Dromana faces Pearcedale and Rye in the final home and away games of the season. Red Hill finishes with Crib Point and Tyabb. It’s all going to come down to percentage. Red Hill was lucky to escape from Devon Meadows with a win, falling over the line by the smallest of margins, 8.15 (63) to 8.14 (62). At half time the Hillmen led by 22 points and Devon Meadows was goal-

less at that point in the match. However, with injuries to Dan McNamara (concussion), Tom McEnroe (hamstring) and ruckman Harry Wynne-Pope, the Hillmen were lacking rotations and barely hung on. The Meadows drew level late in the last quarter and had the ball deep inside their attacking 50 metre line when the siren went, however, they never got their noses in front. Jono Ross was superb for the Hillmen again with four goals while Jonah Siverson and Chris Irving were at their best. Scores were level at half time between Dromana and Somerville. However, some subtle changes that saw Dromana’s Beau Cosson and Ethan Johnstone moved to half back and Rikki Johnstone forward saw the match turn. Sam Guerts was sensational across four quarters also for the Tigers as they booted nine goals to four in the second half to win 15.11 (101) to 10.9 (69). Andrejs Everitt made the most of his limited opportunities for Somerville with five goals. Hastings breathed some life into the 2017 season with a hard-fought game against Sorrento. The Blues got within two points of

the Sharks in the last quarter before going down by 28 points, 13.13 (91) to 9.9 (63). Leigh Poholke was superb for the Sharks with four goals while Max Gardner and Danny Stephenson were also outstanding. Ricky Ferraro, on the back of being named the new Hastings coach for seasons 2018 and 2019, was Hastings’ best, along with Shaun Foster. Pearcedale recorded a comfortable 57 point victory against Tyabb, 16.15 (111) to 8.6 (54). Pat Heijden booted five goals for the Dales while Harry Prior dominated through the middle. Rosebud continued its domination of the opposition with a 19.17 (131) to 3.3 (21) win against Crib Point. Keegan Downie booted six goals and Dale Stephens and Fraser Hustwaite dominated for the Buds. In the final game, Frankston Bombers restricted Rye to just one goal in each of the first and second halves to win 19.16 (130) to 2.10 (22). James Degenhardt booted three majors for the Bombers and proved how important he is to this team while Sam Fox and Mitch Bosward dominated at the stoppages. Joel Wills and Harry Wilson were Rye’s best.

Mordialloc ‘bounce back’ with dominant victory By Ben Triandafillou THE Mordialloc women’s development side have hit back after suffering their first loss for the season against Murrumbeena in Round 10. The Bloods (13.11.89) returned with an 89-point victory over Edithvale-Aspendale (0.0.0) at Ben Kavanagh Reserve, Mordialloc on Sunday 30 July. While Mordialloc suffered their first loss for the season to Murrumbeena in the previous round of the Southern Football Netball Women’s Development League, coach Natty Cardamone said they weren’t too fazed by it and actually learned a lot from it. “We always knew Murrumbeena were going to be a big ask but we weren’t too fazed to have a loss, it’s actually something we probably needed,” she said. “We had a few players out so it was good to

see everyone step up and give everything they had against Murrumbeena. “It didn’t affect our morale so we were ready to bounce back against Edi-Asp.” Mordialloc dominated throughout the match with T. Rosenquist having an all-time best performance kicking a total of four goals with J. Miller kicking three goals. Mordialloc is set to face Murrumbeena again in round 13 where they’ll travel to Murrumbeena Park, Murrumbeena on Saturday 12 August kicking off at 10:15am.

Langy seven points clear with four to play SOCCER

By Craig MacKenzie THE depth of Langwarrin’s squad proved crucial in Saturday’s comefrom-behind 3-1 win over Caulfield United at Lawton Park. Star striker Liam Baxter had to be stretchered off in the 53rd minute with a hamstring injury and classy central defender Kieron Kenny had to be helped off 11 minutes later with a knee injury. Baxter is expected to miss up to three weeks while the extent of Kenny’s injury will be assessed this week. Baxter and Kenny are among a group of visa players who have powered Langy to a seven-point lead on top of State 1 South-East and with four games remaining Gus Macleod’s men are redhot favourites to clinch the title. That would trigger the club being offered promotion to Victoria’s elite National Premier League set-up which currently allows just two visa players per club. While no announcement has been made the word is that Langy may give those spots to Connor Belger and Paul Speed. They were signed late last year from English club AFC Liverpool on the recommendation of ex-Langy marquee player and former England youth international Kevin Townson. Belger’s display on Saturday was the driving force behind Langy’s eventual success. He played up front in the first half then dropped into a central midfield role in the second period and his ability to wrong-foot and glide past opponents at will, initiate attacks with penetrating passes into Langy’s attacking third while also being a serious goal threat via his lethal left foot stamped him as the match’s most valuable player. Gangly Caulfield striker Cort KiblerMelby’s looping header sailed over the head of Langy keeper Robbie Acs and into the net to open the scoring in the 16th minute but Kenny’s powerful header from Baxter’s free-kick in the 26th minute made it 1-1. Four minutes into the second half a Kibler-Melby header was headed off the line by John Guthrie then Macleod was forced to bring on Nabil Mozaffaruddin and Navin Velupillay for Baxter and Kenny while also replacing towering central midfielder Mat Luak with Sergio Yanez. The deadlock was broken in the 81st minute when a superb Yanez cross from the right was headed home by Mozaffaruddin and the large Langy crowd erupted. In the 91st minute a stunning Yanez volley was acrobatically tipped over by Caulfield keeper Dennys Martin but in the 99th minute Belger sent Aaran

Mighty “Moza”: Young Langwarrin striker Nabil Mozaffaruddin put his side ahead on Saturday. Picture: John Punshon Currie through and although Martin got a hand to Currie’s clever chip he was helpless to stop the ball from nestling in the back of the Caulfield net. During the pre-season doubts were raised over Currie’s workrate but the teenager has been able to turn his game around and now is a potent attacking force brimful of confidence. Mornington too is a confident outfit as shown by its commanding 4-0 win over fourth-placed Warragul United at Dallas Brooks Park on Saturday. Adam Jamieson’s outfit hit the mark in the 20th minute with a header from livewire forward Wayne Gordon and regular scorer Sammy Orritt made it 2-0 in the 26th minute with a first-time strike from Ryan Paczkowski’s cutback from the right. When Paczkowski headed home at the near post from a Gordon corner in

Chelsea Mordialloc Mentone News

the 36th minute the contest was over. Paczkowski added a second late in the second half to complete the rout. Mornington travels to Lawton Park to take on the league leader on Saturday 19 August in the most anticipated clash on the peninsula in recent times. Harry McCartney reports that Frankston Pines all but assured itself of safety in State 2 South-East with Saturday’s 1-0 away win over bottom side Seaford United. An 87th minute winner from Graham Hill was all that separated the local rivals. The result leaves Seaford staring into the abyss as Pines skip six points clear of relegation. Peninsula Strikers gained what may prove to be an important point when it drew 0-0 away to Old Scotch in their State 2 South-East clash on Saturday. Referee Yoav Fisher sent off Tom

Hawkins for serious foul play in the 32nd minute forcing Strikers to battle with 10 men for the remainder of the contest. The result maintains Strikers’ two-point lead over second-bottom Doncaster Rovers which drew 2-2 with Heatherton United last weekend. State 3 South-East promotion candidate Skye United hosted a strong Monbulk Rangers outfit on Saturday and eventually went down 1-0. Steve McCrae’s header midway through the first half was enough to settle the issue in a dour affair. However Skye remained in second spot after Brandon Park slipped up against ninth-placed Middle Park with a shock 2-1 loss. Baxter’s State 4 South promotion hopes are slim after Saturday’s 1-0 loss to title contender Springvale City. But departing coach Roy Kilner was proud of his side’s determined display. “We were awesome and I couldn’t have asked for more,” said Kilner. The decisive moment came in the 72nd minute when Adem Alicevic broke into a one-on-one with Baxter keeper Francis Beck and slotted home the winner. The first half had been a tight affair with Springvale rattling the bar, Beck making two good saves and striker Mark Pagliarulo blasting a left-foot effort over from a good position. Alan Lipsett and Jake Kidder were forced into goal-line clearances in the second half and Baxter’s claims for a penalty in the 86th minute were waved away by referee Pat Couty. The result leaves Springvale on top of the table on goal difference from Bayside Argonauts with Monash Uni and Dandenong South two points behind them. Rosebud Heart hammered visitor Endeavour Hills Fire 6-0 in their State 4 South fixture on Saturday. Heart midfielder Will O’Brien opened the scoring in the fourth minute when he skinned two defenders and hit a well-placed low drive past Endeavour keeper Stuart Tolmie. Blake Hicks made it 2-0 in the 18th minute with a curling left-foot shot into the top far corner and two minutes later a Mikey Turner corner was headed against the bar by Daniel Hodge and Dave Greening headed home the rebound. Greening broke through and made it 4-0 in the 31st minute and in the 61st minute Hodge buried his header from Turner’s corner to make it 5-0. A superb ball by Hicks in the 68th minute picked out Greening who flicked the ball over a defender’s head then unleashed a left-foot volley that nearly took the net off to seal his hat-trick. Greening has now officially scored 26 league goals this season and

five goals in cup matches. Endeavour’s dismal day was complete in the 80th minute when Gilbert Palmire’s penalty attempt was saved at full stretch by Heart custodian Sean Skelly. State 5 South outfit Somerville Eagles went down 5-0 to title contender Sandown Lions on Saturday. A hat-trick to Dak Kong and goals from Math Thowat and substitute Duol Kuei kept Sandown on top of the league ladder. If WNPL side Southern United needed confirmation of onfield improvement this season it came on Saturday at Centenary Park when it went down 2-1 to league leader South Melbourne. Two contentious penalties, a controversially disallowed Courtney Heuston goal in the first half and a second half largely controlled by Southern were hallmarks of its gritty display. South Melbourne was 2-0 up after 11 minutes thanks to a double from Melina Ayres, her first coming from the penalty spot. The persistence of Southern youngster Savanna Anastopoulos paid off in the 52nd minute when she reduced the arrears and although South Melbourne was awarded a second penalty Southern keeper Christine Fonau made a superb save. Southern’s under-18s lost 5-0 while the under-15s lost 4-2 with Giulia Mazzeo scoring four goals while Anastassia Pusca and former Traralgon City star Monique Lapenta replied for Southern.
