Sky rail plan ‘arrogant’ Neil Walker neil@baysidenews.com.au BUSINESS deals to build sky rail along sections of the Frankston line won’t be “torn up” but any incoming Coalition state government in Victoria will look again at any level crossing removal not finished and put rail lines under road. Liberal opposition leader Matthew Guy visited Carrum on Tuesday (14

March) — where the Labor state government confirmed elevated rail will be built — to accuse the government of “playing politics” with rail projects. “I believe a new government can and should negotiate a new contract and put those level crossings underground as they were always meant to be,” Mr Guy said. “Some communities get sky rail, some communities get a trench. And

it depends in some areas on the seat margin, who’s talked loudest and on internal Labor politics in relation to where a member sits in relation to a friendship with the Premier. “It’s just not the way to build infrastructure. Do it properly, do it consistently and do it right from the start.” The Level Crossing Removal Authority confirmed last week that a 900-metre long eight-metre high “rail

bridge” will be built over McLeod Rd and level crossings at Station St, Eel Race Rd and Mascot Ave will be removed. Carrum Labor MP Sonya Kilkenny welcomed the decision alongside a plan to move train stabling from Carrum along the Frankston line to Kananook. “Not only will we remove these level crossings – we will turn the ugly stabling yard in to a new Carrum vil-

lage that will transform our community forever,” she said in a statement last week. Mr Guy accused the government of being “pig headed” and “arrogant” in insisting elevated rail must be built in Carrum. “If it’s about the water table, then we would never have built CityLink, it goes 10-15 metres below the Yarra river.” Continued Page 2

Libs rail against crossings plan Continued from Page 1 The opposition leader said he disagreed with moving stabling to Kananook. The government announced last week seven properties — most with businesses on site — will be compulsorily acquired in the Wells Rd, Seaford area to accommodate the Kananook stabling. “I’m certainly not in the business of tearing up contracts but there is a broader discussion about Frankston station as to whether that terminus is the right spot for the end of the line,” Mr Guy said. “There seems to be a continual ‘band aiding’ of the Frankston train station.”

He favoured extending the electric rail line and building stabling at Baxter or Leawarra. Eleven level crossings will now be removed along the Frankston line — two more than originally planned — from Cheltenham to Frankston as part of the state government’s pledge to separate road from rail at level crossings across Victoria. Construction works will mostly begin next year and train commuters will suffer short-term disruptions to train services. Metro Trains will run buses alongside sections of the Frankston line affected by level crossing removals.

Speed fine inquiry ‘never got through’ Stephen Taylor steve@baysidenews.com.au

Art at heart of centre fun VISITORS can explore their inner artist when the Chelsea Heights Community Centre hosts a ‘pop-up art event’ on Saturday 25 March. The interactive day will include workshops to suit all ages, and there will be a range of guest artists and musicians. The artistic facilitators from the Permesso collective will offer an opportunity to be creative, and through a process of meditation and intuitive painting, participants will be able to paint on a large mural canvas to be displayed at the centre.

Another highlight of the event will be the high-energy African drumming. There will be a range of drums and shakers available to encourage people to play. Kingston artists will host a teaching session on matchbox art, which participants get to take home. Children will have their own art space where they can show off their creativity and take part in producing a mural just for kids. There will also be a face painter and refreshments. Entry is free. See chelseaheightscommunitycentre.com. au or call 9772 3391 for further details.

A PORTSEA resident who lodged a submission to Road Safety Camera Commissioner John Voyage relating to his speeding fine says it “probably never reached him due to administrative errors”. David Gilder, who uses Peninsula Link regularly, said perhaps many others were in the same situation. “When I became aware of the commissioner’s investigation I wrote to Civic Compliance Victoria asking that I be added to the list of names that he required. I informed them that I had already paid my fine,” he said. “My request was forwarded to the Department of Justice and Regulation. I next received two letters from different sections of Victoria Police telling me a review had judged me guilty and that my fine was still valid. “There was no mention of Commissioner Voyage.” Mr Gilder said he did not request a review of his fine which was already paid. “All I asked for was to have my name added to the list before the commissioner to add credibility to his review,” he said. “After the bureaucratic run around I gave up. “One wonders how many others had similar experiences trying to contact the commissioner.”

Mr Gilder’s comments follows ‘Booked speedsters’ slow to complain’ (The News 23/2/2017) in which Mr Voyage said he was puzzled at the lack of “objective evidence” received from motorists blaming their speeding fines on faulty Peninsula Link cameras. Mr Voyage was getting ready to wrap up the evidence-collecting part of his investigation which he said he wanted to finalise in six-to-eight weeks. His report was to then go to Police Minister Lisa Neville. Another fined driver, Mark Mercuri, told the Peninsula Link 108 group he recently received an email from Mr Voyage saying he was still “taking into consideration all the information” he receives, despite his being delivered a few days past the deadline. “I can only assume he will still be open to receiving any decent arguments, information or proof if you have it, which I’m glad he has so that’s a positive at least,” Mr Mercuri said. “It’s worth a shot so don’t hold back to help build a stronger case.” Peninsula Link 108 member Jarrod Salmon said the drivers’ deadline would have applied if Mr Voyage was receiving lots of correspondence and needed time to slow down and look through it all. “I can't see there being a problem with the odd [submission] hitting his desk,” he said.

A new look for Frankston’s specialist rehabilitation hospital. WORK has commenced on a $9.7 million refurbishment of St John of God Frankston Rehabilitation Hospital, south east of Melbourne, which will deliver new and improved patient accommodation and amenities by early 2018. Scope of works planned: • Conversion of 3 and 4 bed wards to 2 bed wards. • Increased single rooms • Patient rooms and ensuites will be refurbished and refreshed • Improved front entrance access for patients and vehicles • New kiosk, lounge area, 3 additional consulting rooms, Chapel and an adjoining multipurpose meeting room all form part of the new look foyer. Chief Executive Officer, Sally Faulkner, said the most critical component of the refurbishment was to increase the number of single rooms at our hospital to better support patients through their recovery. “We will be converting our three and four bed rooms to two bed rooms and refurbishing our bathrooms, all with a view to providing our patients with greater comfort and privacy,” Sally said. “The design will also give us the flexibility to increase the bed capacity

as required, to meet the demands for our services.” For a rehabilitation hospital, access is incredibly important and new front and rear entrances to the hospital will make it easier for patients as well as vehicles that transport patients after surgery or injury. With a new front reception featuring a lounge area and kiosk, the caregivers and volunteers of St

John of God Frankston Rehabilitation Hospital will be better able to share the hospitality for which they are so highly regarded in the local community. “Whilst this is a comprehensive and detailed refurbishment it will occur in stages so that we minimise the impact on our inpatient and outpatient services,” Sally said. “We will continue with business as

usual to provide our comprehensive rehabilitation services every day throughout the refurbishment.” How do you attend our hospital?

Proud crowd: Students from Berwick spent a day at Chelsea beach last week to help pick up the rubbish that beachgoers have left behind. Picture: Yanni

Students join patrol clean-up CHELSEA beach is a whole lot cleaner after more than 38kg of rubbish was collected last Wednesday (8 March) by the dedicated volunteers of Chelsea Beach Patrol and some enthusiastic school students. Chelsea Beach Patrol is a group of community-minded volunteers who have the common mission of cleaning up the mess each month that others leave behind at Chelsea, Bonbeach and Edithvale beaches. Zone manager Lucy Bonham, who is a teacher at Nossal High School in Berwick, took 44 students from year 9 to 11 to assist in this month’s clean-up, and says the experience was “eye opening”. “The students were pretty shocked at just how much rubbish is left behind by people who’d

rather throw it in the bushes than find a bin, or stub their butts out in the sand instead of disposing of them properly,” she said. “Education really is the best way to change community attitudes and reinforcing the importance of placing rubbish in bins, or taking it home.” Ms Bonham said most of the rubbish was plastic-based and included bottles, bags and lids. “It really is sad to see that people can leave so much rubbish that has an impact on the beach and the waterways.” Chelsea Beach Patrol collected 13,000kg of rubbish at the three Kingston beaches last year. See beachpatrol.com.au/BeachGroups/3196 or call 0413 202 327 for information on how to join the Chelsea Beach Patrol.

Police patrol

Uber driver assaulted AN Uber driver was warned, “Don’t call the police or I will shoot you” by one of two men who attacked and robbed him in Wells Rd Chelsea, 2.30am, Monday 13 March. The 28-year-old, of Pascoe Vale, had pulled over when his car overheated after dropping off a passenger in Frankston. Police said two men in a silver Ford Territory which stopped nearby demanded the driver hand over “everything he had”. When the driver said he only had a phone the pair punched, kicked and choked him before stealing his phone and wallet containing various credit and security cards. They then got back in the Ford Territory, registration number 1FA4EI, and did a U-turn

‘Wrong girl’ charged A CHELSEA man saw three women – one armed with a claw hammer and another a tomahawk – inside his neighbour’s garage, 7.20am, Saturday 11 March. One of the women was allegedly carrying a TV set. When the man attempted to film the women from the front door of his Glenola Rd unit, one called out: “You have chosen the wrong girls to mess with.” When the man retreated inside, one of the women ran up and kicked his front door, then allegedly hit his car with an implement causing a small dent. The women then got into a white hatch with a black bonnet and drove off. Police patrolling the area saw the car parked in a driveway further down Glenola Rd, and later searched the house which was in a state of disrepair. They allegedly found the TV set. A 26-year-old Chelsea woman was charged with theft and bailed to appear at Moorabbin Magistrates’ Court in June.

A YOUTH was stabbed as he walked along a foreshore path off Beach Rd, Mentone, 10pm, Saturday 11 March. The 17-year-old, of Chelsea Heights, was with a friend when he was punched in the face by an unknown assailant and then felt what he thought was a push in the back. Soon afterwards he felt a “warm sensation and pain to his left shoulder”. When he saw that his jumper was covered in blood he realised he had been stabbed. While his friend ran to fetch the others further along the path, the victim ran towards Beach Rd and waived down a passing motorist while calling 000 on his mobile phone. The motorist stayed with the injured youth until police and ambulance officers arrived. He said he did not see his attacker, who came up from behind and ran off in the opposite direction. Staff at The Alfred hospital found a 1.5cm stab wound to the youth’s left shoulder. Anyone with information should call Crime Stoppers 1800 333 000.

Looking to past to remember MORE than 80 people took part in an inaugural walk around Chelsea named after one of the town’s most loved community members, historian Margaret Jacobs. ‘Margaret’s Walk’ followed one of the 3km walks around Chelsea that Ms Jacob’s mapped and documented as a passionate Chelsea and District Historical Society volunteer.

Stadium upgrade in strife

In jeopardy: Construction works at Frankston Basketball Stadium have stopped over disagreement over a new lease.

A letter from basketball association president Steve Ashley to Mr Hovenden, mayor Cr Brian Cunial and all councillors last week accused council of “bordering on unconscionable behaviour” in imposing “unreasonable” deadlines during negotiations with the not-for-profit organisation. While not commenting on the specifics of the lease negotiations, North-West ward councillors – whose electorate include Seaford – fear about $7.7 million of federal and state funding will be lost to Frankston if agreement cannot be reached. “This is one of the biggest projects we’ve had in the North-West ward,” Cr Aitken said. “It would be a disaster for this project to not proceed. “If this money, for instance, was simply to be returned to the state and federal government then it would be seen publicly in a very bad light by the community.” Cr Aitken said the association and the project have his complete support.

H O EA R F TH F PS U E N K ID S!

“Council is working alongside the association to discuss potential options in order to proceed with the much-needed upgrade of the stadium.” Devco had begun installing work sheds and storage containers on site. Frankston councillors met last Monday evening (6 March) at a special meeting behind closed doors – since the lease is deemed commercial in confidence – to discuss the new lease terms for the Frankston & District Basketball Association. Council officers refused to tell the basketball association the outcome of last Monday’s meeting including how councillors voted on the lease terms. It is understood a majority of councillors voted to press ahead with the demand for higher lease payments. Council CEO Dennis Hovenden instead requested a meeting with the association’s board, the mayor and councillors within three days of last Monday’s meeting to discuss the new lease. This meeting was later postponed until Tuesday 14 March.

Not so lucky

Cr Bolam wants answers to why lastminute lease negotiations have put the $12.7 million project in jeopardy. “I see it as a highly unusual practice, after four years of supposed meticulous planning, to have a situation where the lease agreement has yet to be determined just days before the shovels hit the ground.” Cr O’Connor said the association and council “need to work together to get the best outcome for the community”. The breakdown in lease negotiations contrasts with council’s positivity about the stadium upgrade in January (“Basketball stadium upgrade”, The News 18/1/17). Cr Cunial announced in January the awarding of the building contract to Devco was “great news for the community”. Federal Dunkley Liberal MP Chris Crewther and state Labor MPs Paul Edbrooke (Frankston) and Sonya Kilkenny (Carrum) welcomed the start of construction works that same month. “I am proud to support our local sporting clubs and venues and build upon the sporting facilities available in Dunkley.” Mr Crewther said in January. “Sport helps provide confidence for youth, education, health and community involvement. It has a strong preventative effect in regards to disconnection and youth crime.” Ms Kilkenny said: “Great things can happen for our community when all three levels of government work together. Who knows, the next Lauren Jackson, Andrew Gaze or Michael Jordan might just come through Frankston Basketball. As the local state member I would love to see that happen.”

Neil Walker neil@baysidenews.com.au MILLIONS of dollars in state and federal funding could be lost to the southeast region amid a stand off over a new lease for the Frankston Basketball Stadium. Construction work on a first stage $12.7 million expansion of the basketball stadium has been halted by Frankston Council over a disagreement between council and the Frankston & District Basketball Association. It is understood council is seeking to double the annual amount of rent paid by the basketball association to about $60,000 a year and also wants a 6 per cent take of some of the association’s future income. The association is pitching in $1 million to stage one of the Seaford stadium expansion to include retractable seating, four more courts taking the total on site to ten and a new reception area. The federal government is contributing $5.2 million of taxpayers’ money, the state government $2.5 million of taxpayers’ money and Frankston Council $4 million of ratepayers’ money to stage one of the project. Council CEO Dennis Hovenden confirmed works at the stadium by builder Devco Project & Construction Management have been stopped. “Construction works on the Frankston Basketball Stadium redevelopment have been temporarily halted due to an agreement not being reached with the Frankston District Basketball Association for a future lease model,” Mr Hovenden said in a statement.

Police patrol AN Aspendale cat was shot in the thigh with an air rifle, overnight Wednesday 8 March. The 15-year-old feline, “Luckie”, of Fifth Av, was found hobbling by his owner and taken to the vet but had to be put down. The owner told police he would speak with his neighbours to ask if they knew, or had heard of, anyone using an air rifle in the area. Anyone with information is urged to call Crime Stoppers 1800 333 000.

Cars, property stolen THREE cars, cash and computer equipment were stolen from two properties in Waterways, 3.50am, Monday 13 March. The thieves stole $800 from a man’s wallet and car keys from a Volkswagen Golf parked in a driveway in Coorong Circle. The keys were used to steal a Subaru sedan parked across the street. Inside was an iMac Air laptop and iPad valued at $2700. A Holden Astra hatch was also rifled in the driveway on the same night and a Dell laptop stolen. The Subaru was later recovered from Starlight Cr, Waterways, with the laptop and iPad inside. Two cars were stolen from the garage of a house directly opposite at the same time. Thieves entered via an open garage and stole two sets of car keys from a side table in the hallway, as well as a woman’s handbag and Apple MacBook valued at $2250.

100 YEARS AGO THIS WEEK...

Shire to ban powerful car “searchlights” Compiled by Cameron McCullough Our Letter Box. Sir,–It is amusing to note in your journal that the shire councillors of the Frankston and Hastings shire have agreed to support the venture of the Lilydale Shire Council in an effort to secure the non use of powerful (or search) lights on motor cars. Frankston has the most dangerous and worst conditioned roads of which I know, and yet these wise? Crs. in committee, have decided to try to prevent motorists, driving cars of big value, from using a protection for the safety of their lives and their expensive motor cars; for only in these searchlights does protection lie to the driver and occupants of cars at night on the famous (for their grossly damaged and extremely dangerous parts) Frankston roads. This doing is, of course, in line with many previous doings of your should be valued councillors, who seem to have no thought for the convenience of visitors or the property of ratepayers. Without powerful lights it would be perilous to drive on certain and various Frankston roads, and if accidents occur through fault of neglect to remedy thoroughfares, which neglect seems abundant locally, when one looks at numerous Frankston roads, the council is liable for damages, but, on the other hand, damages will not bring back life should a fatal accident occur on our neglected and unsafe roads. Would it not be a wiser plan for our representatives at the Council Table to give their time and their energies to remedying the present damage and

freeing travellers in consequence, from peril, in lieu of increasing the peril of our roads by the use of dim lights. If our Crs. had in mind the thought that poor lights would not show up their neglect on our roads, as far as vision goes they may succeed, but bruises to body and limb through lesser power of headlights will engrave indelibly on the minds of our ratepayers and visitors that there is need for improvement and progress in our representatives. Yours etc, SEARCHLIGHT.

Editor’s note: “Searchlight” seems to be some what hysterical in his denunciation of Councillors for supporting the action of the Lilydale Council in their endeavours to get the headlights of motor cars reduced in strength. For our part, and we think the opinion is very general with the travelling public, we consider that the brilliancy of the lights now used by some of the cars instead of being of use for the purpose of avoiding accidents, just confuses those approaching it, and renders them blind, and thus increases the danger of collision instead of minimising it. As far as our main roads being particularly disgraceful and dangerous, we think our councillors have reason to be proud of their condition, and about the only risk of accident on them is the risk that the drivers take on themselves when they indulge in reckless speed and careless driving. *** OUR Moorooduc correspondence and other interesting items are unavoidable held over till next issue. ***

TENDERS are called by the Defence department up to 22nd March for the supply of meat and vegetables to a number of camps, including Langwarrin, for the month of April next. *** THE metropolitan dairyman held their annual picnic in the Frankston Park on Wednesday last, but owing to the threatening nature of the weather in the morning the attendance was not so numerous as usual. *** CAPTAIN Guy Madden sailed for the front last week. Previous to his leaving he was tendered a dinner by his many friends at Menzie’s Hotel, Melbourne. With his many friends we join in wishing Captain Madden God’s speed and a safe return. *** A PATRIOTIC Social will be held at the Mt. Eliza School on Wednesday, 4th April, commencing at 8.30 sharp, the admission being by collection taken at the door. There will be good moonlight on the evening in question and a crowded house is expected by the promoters. *** ON Monday next Adamson, Strettle and Co. will have a good yarding of cattle, sheep, pigs, and sundries at their usual sale at Tanti, and on Friday, March 23rd at the same place they will offer 80 horses and ponies for sale including draughts, light horses, and ponies. *** ATTENTION is directed to an advertisement of the Manufacturers Bottle Company of Victoria Pty Ltd., which

appears in our advertising columns, giving notice to Bottle Dealers and others, that all bottles with the Trade Mark and Brand “M.B. over C.V.” in a Spade, moulded thereon, are their sole property and when the contents are once used, the bottles must forthwith, on demand, be returned to the company or its duly authorised Agents. *** THE return cricket match between Langwarrin Camp Cricket Club and the Frankston Club will be played today (Saturday), at Langwarrin. The Frankston Club will be entertained by the officers of the camp to afternoon tea. Frankston members are requested to be punctual. *** THE following goods have been sent by the Frankston Red Cross Society from the local depot to headquarters during the month of February :–170 flannel shirts, 30 pairs sox, 5 helmets (Balaclava), 7 scarfs, 15 pillow cases, 15 eye bandages, also 2 cases of old linen. The following donations were thankfully received :–Mrs H. Masterton, 4 doz. petrol cases; Miss Bunny, 4 cases. *** THE writs for the forthcoming election will be issued on Monday, March the 26th, at 6 o’clock, and no claims for enrolment can be placed on the rolls after that date and hour. Persons failing to enrol will be liable to a penalty of £2. It therefore behoves all persons who have not previously enrolled to do so without delay. April the 5th is the last day on which nominations of candidates will be received and the election, will be held

on May the 5th.

*** We call attention to advertisement appearing in another column of large subdivisional sale in the Cricklewood Estate to be held on Easter Monday, April 9th, at 3 o’clock on the ground. The terms of purchase have been fixed exceptionally easy, viz. : £2 cash deposit and the balance at 10s per month free of interest. If for investment only, these fine allotments should be good buying seeing the very rapid improvements taking place in real estate throughout this district. With the inaguration of a water supply, electrification of the town, and the early electrification of the railway, there is no doubt that values will immediately increase, and that at no distant date this town will assume proportions as a watering place as well as of a residential centre otherwise unexpected a few years ago. We understand that within the last few weeks several villa properties have changed ownership, to say nothing of quite a lot of residential allotments which will soon be built upon showing conclusively that in the near future, Frankston will become on account of its exceptional train facilities, and splendid main roads for motorists, as well as being up to-date in the matter of lighting and water, more sought after than ever. Messrs Brody and Mason will wield the hammer on the 9th April, from whom plans etc are now available. *** From the pages of the Mornington Standard, 17 March 1917

THE MEANING OF EXISTENCE... AND OTHER SHORT STORIES

The name game - blurbs for new suburbs By Stuart McCullough TALK about squandering an opportunity. Given the chance to jazz up the joint, we have instead opted for banality. Seventeen new suburbs will be added to Melbourne’s metropolitan firmament and there’s barely a decent name among them. Sunbury South? Please. Taking an existing suburb and adding ‘south’, ‘west’, ‘north’, ‘upper’, ‘lower’ or any other form of locational qualifier is simply cheating and lacks imagination. We deserve something bold. Something inspiring. Something – dare I say it – that might make someone want to live there. So what are the new suburbs we’ll all be hearing about in the morning traffic reports in years to come? There’s Quandong, which doesn’t sound so much like a strip of shops and a housing estate as it does a large aquatic mammal. No one’s going to want to live somewhere that sounds like a giant sea cow. I’m pretty sure that if Captain Ahab survived his run-in with Moby Dick, he would have ridden to shore on the back of a Quandong. But spare a thought for the residents who will live somewhere bereft of the infrastructure most people take for granted. The answer is simple: corporate sponsorship. I can recall an era where sports stadiums had names for life. But traditional nomenclature was thrown overboard long ago and Kardinia Park became ‘Skilled Stadium’, completely wrecking the club’s theme song in the process. Ikon Park sounds like something that should arrive in a flat pack. The artist currently known as ‘Etihad Stadium’ has had so many

PAGE 10

names that it may be the only sporting arena to ever participate in a witness protection program. But sponsorship means money and, in the case of our new suburbs, infrastructure. That’s why I think ‘Kellogg’s Quandong’ has a lot of merit. But for every Kellogg’s Quandong, there’s a Plumpton. I’m not sure I’d want to live somewhere called ‘Plumpton’. It sounds like the epicentre of an obesity crisis. That said, it rhymes with ‘Compton’ and I look forward to the first generation of rappers emerging from this fledgling suburb to proclaim, with their hats on backwards and – doubtless – their elasticized waists, that they are ‘Straight Outta

Chelsea Mordialloc Mentone News 15 March 2017

Plumpton’. Ideally, Compton would become Plumpton’s sister city, to fully realize the potential for cultural crosspollination. One of the new suburbs will be called ‘Beveridge Central’. Although it doesn’t even exist yet, I feel I’ve already been there. When I was at Uni, I lived in a large share house in St Kilda. The upstairs living room had its own bar and fridge that was forever stocked with beer. That, to me, was Beveridge Central. In fact, I recall some of our friends describing it as exactly that. Spare a thought, though, for residents of ‘Beveridge North West’, who have squandered the chance to call themselves ‘Beveridge North by North

West’ in homage to Alfred Hitchcock and lay claim to being Melbourne’s premier outer suburban destination for film buffs who are easily misled. Trust me, it’s a growing market. Then there’s Tarneit Plains. Where do I begin? One the one hand, it sounds unfeasibly modest. No suburb should have the term ‘plain’ as part of its name. Those who live there might end up having a complex. If suburbs have to have a double-barreled title, they should have words like ‘Awesome’, ‘Wonderful’ or ‘Splendiforous’ as the all-important second limb. I would be prepared to move somewhere call ‘Tarneit Amazeballs’, but not ‘Tarneit Plains’.

The other problem with ‘Tarneit Plains’ is that they’re describing what used to be there. Yes, once upon a time there were large plains of grasslands and rolling meadows. Then we decided to build about a thousand houses on top of them. It’s like those places that have words like ‘Meadows’ or ‘Springs’ as part of their name – they’re describing something they just poured a concrete slab on top of. There are, of course, exceptions. Frankly, the fact that we’ll soon have a suburb called ‘Northern Quarries’ fills my heart with absolute joy. Doubtless, local sporting teams will call themselves things like ‘The Quarrymen’, ‘The Diggers’ and ‘The Earth Movers’. The promotional campaign in support of new estates will be entitled to say, ‘Northern Quarries Rocks!’ without a hint of shame. By linking the name of a suburb to the local industry you end up with a kind vertically integrated form of cross promotion. Everyone wins. Quandong should take careful note. We need to be innovative. Agile. Creative. New suburb names should have pizzazz and not be the product of a fifteen-minute meeting before lunch (yes, I’m talking to you, ‘Pakenham East’). They should (if possible) go viral. In fact, they should go so viral that they need to be separated from others for fear of infection. Suburbs with names like ‘Funky Town’, ‘Noddyland’ and ‘New York South’ would get tongues wagging and build the kind of on-line buzz I know that we all secretly crave. It’s the least we deserve. Home sweet home. stuart@stuartmccullough.com


GRAEME CONNORS HEADS TO FAC FOR 60 SUMMERS TOUR The celebration of Graeme’s ’60 Summers’ album continues as he heads to Frankston Arts Centre on Thursday 23rd March. He recently had three nominations for the 2017 Golden Guitar Awards held in Tamworth on Saturday January 28. The song 60 SUMMERS is nominated for Single Of The Year, Video of The Year and APRA AMCOS Song of the Year. This album has had the longest continuous run in the ARIA Top 40 Album Chart of any Australian album newly released in 2016. The latest single, MT EVEREST is currently sitting at #20 on The Music Network Country Airplay Chart and #14 on the Country Music Channel video chart and still on the way up!! The video of this single was shot in Graeme’s home town, Mackay. Throughout the two-hour+ show, the iconic singer-songwriter and his incredible five-piece band perform a selection of hits, new songs and fan favourites inspired by his best-selling album ’60 Summers: The Ultimate Collection’. The 37 track doublealbum set was released on Graeme’s 60 birthday earlier this year

The album reached #1 on the ARIA Country Album chart while the lead single, also entitled “60 Summers”, spent three weeks at #1 on The Music Network Official Country Airplay chart. These new career milestones are all the more remarkable given that throughout Graeme’s 40-year career he has amassed album sales in excess of 400,000 units across 19 albums released to date and his catalogue has spent a combined total of 757 weeks (over 14 years) on the ARIA Country Album chart. Graeme commented “I am thrilled that after 40 plus years in the music business and 60 years of life I have the opportunity to achieve new milestones and I look forward to sharing my thanks with some of the friends & fans that make these things happen when I hit the road for the ’60 Summers’ tour”. Join Graeme ‘In Concert’ celebrating his outstanding career in an evening jam packed with landmark songs and unforgettable performances.

Bouncing the Kangas: Baxter easily accounted for Langwarrin in their semi-final. Picture: Rab Siddhi

Baxter and Mt Eliza into grand final PROVINCIAL

By IT Gully BAXTER will host Mt Eliza in the MPCA Provincial grand final this weekend after both teams recorded commanding semi-final victories on Saturday. While the MPCA played its cards close to its chest in relation to announcing grand final venues, it was widely tipped on Sunday night that no other ground than Mornington’s Alexandra Park should be the venue for a Provincial grand final. While Baxter went into its semi-final against Langwarrin as unbackable favourites, the same couldn’t be said for Mt Eliza over Peninsula Old Boys. Mt Eliza did beat POB before Christmas, however, the Old Boys have been the wrecking balls of the competition

this season, at times making the opposition look second rate and in a different class. However, over the weekend, it was Mt Eliza that were in total control. The rot started for the Old Boys when the devastating Dylan O’Malley became the first of six victims for Shaun Knott with the first ball of the semi final. Glenn Prendergast was soon to follow and when Wade Pelzer was gone for 23, the Old Boys were reeling at 3/40. Skipper Matty Hyden (23) and the gifted Will Crowder (53) got things back on track with a 65 run partnership before both losing their wickets. The tail that usually does so well for the Old Boys was non-existent, losing 6/19 to be all out for 151. Knott finished the afternoon with

6/56 from 22 overs, while skipper Justin Grant claimed 3/36 from 25.3 overs. The Mounties faced the final eight overs of the day and were cruising at 0/31 at stumps with Damien Kent on 13 and Jordan Fuhrmann on 16. POB, as expected, hit back early on Sunday but Justin Grant and Keith Biggs took the game away from them again before the skipper lost his wicket after hitting a half century. Biggs remained the backbone while Lyle House smacked the winning runs, finishing at 4/155. Down the road at Greg Beck Oval, Baxter defeated Langwarrin in a breeze. Baxter chased down the 158 required for victory with eight wickets in hand. Chris Brittain belted 77 and Daniel Warwick an unbeaten 66 to get the flag favorites over the line.

On the opening day, Langwarrin capitulated after a strong start to be all out for 157. After winning the toss and electing to bat, Langwarrin got away to a strong start with Simon McEvoy (31) and Matt Prosser (34) opening with 65. At tea Langwarrin were going along nicely at 1/76. However, leading up to tea, Justin Bridgeman had bowled seven overs for a return of 0/1 with six maidens. The Kangas just couldn’t score. Prosser went straight after tea and then Bridgeman got Aaron Edwards (28) and Travis Campbell to have the Kangas in some trouble. Chamika Sattambi then came back into the attack and ripped through the underdogs. Langwarrin lost 4/3 and were eventually all out for 157.

Langwarrin legend and mentor Tim Harper said on the RPPFM commentary with Neil Williams at the start of the day that his side “didn’t have the luxury of having Chris Brittain or Daniel Warwick. We don’t have any superstars and we really need to work collectively, which we have been able to do for most of the season”. “Coming into this game and batting first, it was important not to let Dale Irving get his tail up early,” Harper said. While Langwarrin were able to withstand an early onslaught from Irving, they couldn’t slow down Sattambi, who snared four wickets. Baxter resumed at 0/2 on Sunday and dominated the second day to attack its fourth premiership in eight seasons.

Hillmen dominate in District semi DISTRICT

By IT Gully RED Hill were comfortably the best team in MPCA District cricket this season and again proved why against Flinders in the semi-final. The Hillmen cruised into the grand final after smashing the Sharks at RM Hooper Reserve. An early Red Hill Show shifted the Hillmen from their home ground advantage, however, it made little difference to the end result. Flinders won the toss and batted first, however, things turned pearshaped early for the Sharks losing 3/0

PAGE 14

to be 3/3 early in the match. Glenn Collett was at his vintage best and removed Andrew Power for a duck, before Simon Dart sent Tom Clements and Charlie Burgess packing. Flinders were never allowed to get any rhythm and form any longstanding partnerships, despite some cameo batting performances. Keeper Mason Mail made 31 in the middle order and Shane Beggs scrapped for 30, while Waide Symes contributed 30 batting at eight. Brent Martin and Carl Robinson came into the attack for Red Hill though and were able to keep momen-

tum swinging their way with consistent wickets. Martin finished the day with 3/41 from 19 overs, Robinson claimed 2/26 from 13 and Collett was super with 2/15 from 20 overs, including 12 maidens. Dart finished with 2/20 from eight overs. The Hillmen faced the final 11 overs of the day and at sumps they were 0/22 with Matt Merifield not out 20 and Andrew Mock on one. The Hillmen’s cruising continued on Sunday, getting the win with nine wickets in hand. A wonderful performance from Joel Malcolm placed Delacombe Park in a

very strong position overnight against Main Ridge at the end of the first day’s play. It was Dean Blight with the ball on Sunday that did all the damage, taking six wickets as the Parkers rolled the Ridge and advanced to the big dance against Red Hill. Winning the toss and electing to bat on their home deck, Delacombe had a disastrous start losing arguably their best two batsmen in Jon Guthrie (11) and Nick Christides (6) to be 2/21. However, Malcolm came to the crease and was very patient to get the score to 77 before losing another wicket. Andrew Christides then came in

and contributed 33 and Ricky Ramsdale helped out too with 27 to give the Parkers the upper hand. Rowan Charles then belted 28 late in the inning to help Delacombe park to 9/235 in its 80 overs. Malcolm finished unbeaten on 87. Luke Collins claimed 3/46 for the Ridge off 17 overs while James Abbott and Nick McNamara picked up two wickets each. The Ridge lost wickets in quick succession and despite Michael Holmes and Ed Aarons getting things back on track, a direct hit from Nick Christides saw Holmes head to the sheds run out and it was all over at that point.

Blues, Stonecats in big dance SUB-DISTRICT

By IT Gully HASTINGS will play Frankston YCW in the Sub District Grand Final this weekend after both claiming strong semi-final victories on Saturday. However, despite their strong wins, things could quite easily have of gone the other way for the Blues and Stonecats. Despite Hastings finishing with 235, they were in some early trouble against Tootgarook before Luke

and Jake Hewitt came together at the crease. At 4/50, the Hewitt brothers were able to steady the ship and get to tea in a reasonable position at 4/99. At that stage Luke was on 25 and Jake was on 15. AJ King, Stephen Brain and Matt Whelan all got among the wickets and Paul and Zac Stephenson all chimedin also. King finished the innings with 3/33 from 18 to be the stand-out bowler for the Frogs, while Whelan claimed 3/57

from 16 overs. The Frogs were faced with the unenviable task of facing the final over of the day, getting through unscathed to resume at 0/0 on Sunday. Tootgarook were in the game early on the second day but when Matt Whelan was dismissed for 45, the Tooters slipped to be 6/112. In the end, Tootgarook fell short, all out for 150. Frankston YCW too were in early trouble against Ballam Park. The Knights won the toss and sent

the Stonecats in to bat. Early it looked like it was to be a masterstroke. The Knights claimed the first three wickets for just 19 runs and when Levi McLoughlin-Dore was gone for 10, the Stonecats were in real trouble at 4/36. The evergreen Paul Bradley (39), Brett Hugdson (10) and Matt Black (26) were able to stem the tide and then skipper Andrew Kitson (14) and Sam Fulton (18) saw the score go from 8/107 to all out for 168. Kitson and Fulton’s contributions were match-winning.

Ballam Park faced the last four overs of the day on Saturday and Lai Leaunoa, who opened the batting with 33, got the breakthough. Ballam Park resumed on Sunday at 1/5. Things never got any better for the Knights, losing wickets consistently, handing the Stonecats an easy victory. David Cross hurt his knee on the Saturday afternoon, which meant his influence with the bat was no existent, while Stuart Plunkett was removed relatively cheaply after being dropped twice early in his innings.

Freeman sends Mornington into fourth round SOCCER

By Craig MacKenzie SUPERSUB Michael Freeman’s extra time winner at Dallas Brooks Park on Saturday sent Mornington through to the fourth round of the 2017 FFA Cup. Mornington and fellow State 1 South-East title contender Malvern City went head to head in what loomed as the most intriguing cup clash of the round. The pair locked horns in a battle that didn’t reach the heights expected but nevertheless was a closely fought affair that saw Mornington run out a 2-1 victor. Mornington assistant coach Dale White stepped into the head coach’s role in the absence of Adam Jamieson, holidaying in Fiji along with club president Matty Cameron and their families. High profile Mornington recruit Ryan Paczkowski was put through by Wayne Gordon after five minutes but impressive Malvern keeper Alex Connell got a hand to Paczkowski’s shot and the ball was eventually cleared. English import Nathan Smith was adamant that the ball had crossed the goal line following his low near post strike that Connell got down to onehanded before gathering in the 11th minute. The physical battle between Mornington hard man Simon Webster and Malvern striker Anthony Giannopoulos made for interesting viewing both on and off the ball. Mornington’s regular No 1 Kris McEvoy was another bitten by the holiday bug so his place in goal was taken by former Frankston Pines youngster James Laminski. In the 38th minute Laminski failed to cleanly handle a curling left foot strike by Giannopoulos and Daniel Hilder pounced on the loose ball to open the scoring from close range. Early in the second half a lower back injury forced Webster to be replaced by Danny Black and Smith’s left foot strike from 15 metres levelled the scores in the 61st minute. Extra time was need to separate these sides and the decisive blow was struck by quicksilver striker Freeman who had replaced the injured Gordon at the end of normal time. In the 10th minute of extra time Malvern’s Michael Knott mistimed his pass back and Freeman won the race against the advancing Connell and rolled the ball into the unguarded goal to make it 2-1. Steve Elliott’s man-of-the-match display was a highlight while veteran Craig Smart ran his heart out against a talented Malvern midfield. The downside for Mornington was the injury to Gordon’s right forearm and the club was waiting for x-rays to determine whether or not there was a

break. Casey Comets had to rely on keeper Fariz Zenoozi’s two saves in a penalty shootout to see off visitor Whittlesea United in their cup clash on Saturday. Goals by Ray Markley and Andy Stubley had Comets 2-0 up after 22 minutes but Whittlesea hit back to make it 2-1 at half-time. The visitors drew level in the second half but an excellent strike from the edge of the area by Dejan Radojicic in the 89th minute looked to have given Comets the match. Three minutes into injury time Whittlesea again levelled forcing the contest into 15 minutes each way of extra time. Comets’ Guiseppe Guarnaccia and a Whittlesea opponent were sent off in the first half of extra time and when the deadlock couldn’t be broken Zenoozi played a crucial role in Comets winning the penalty shootout 6-5. New Comets signing Allando Matheson played 90 minutes up front before being rested after arriving last week. The 25-year-old holds dual Canadian and Jamaican citizenship and has been on the books of Toronto FC. Skye United travelled to Kim Reserve on Saturday but went down

2-0 to State 2 North-West outfit Altona City in their cup tie. From the get go it was a physical contest but it only took Altona’s Marcus Sherif three minutes to open the scoring. Skye custodian Jonathan Crook did well to save Sherif’s initial shot but the Altona forward pounced on the rebound to make it 1-0. It was a wake-up call for Skye who responded with increasing pressure, making it a more even contest. Jason Nowakowski thought he had equalised in the 30th minute when he nodded home a Mark O’Connor cross only to be denied by the assistant referee’s flag. Altona was reduced to 10 men in the 39th minute when Sefgi Murat was red carded following an off-the-ball incident. But Sherif added a second after he ran onto a long through ball and slotted it past the advancing Crook. Skye’s misery was compounded when Khor Gatluak was given his marching orders in the 69th minute for a second bookable offence. A highly contentious decision by referee Dimitrios Charaktis changed the course of Saturday’s Centenary Park cup tie between Peninsula Strikers and

State 1 opponent South Springvale. Strikers had gone into the contest without suspended duo Raphael Stultz and Aziz Bayeh and injured right back Scott Buchanan but two goals in the opening half-hour from Langwarrin recruit Michael Turner had the home team in control. Turner’s second goal in the 26th minute was a gem, a stunning first time volley into the top corner from just inside the area and Turner was still describing the strike the following day. It took South Springvale until the 85th minute to hit back with a goal from Sajad Mohammadi but substitute Nathan Fenech’s 89th minute equaliser was met with disbelief from Strikers’ fans. “Danny Brooks was felled inside our area and everyone stopped waiting for the free kick but one of their guys just kicked the ball across goal in frustration and another one of their players put it in and the referee awarded a goal,” said Strikers’ gaffer Craig Lewis. “Players from their dugout ran onto the pitch when they scored and none of them were booked but when I asked the referee to explain why he didn’t give us the blatant free kick he sent me off the bench. “Even South Springvale’s coaching staff and some of their committee came up to me after the game and told me we were robbed. “Our players were outstanding and they didn’t deserve what they got.” Substitute Marcelo Arapis scored four minutes into extra time and a second controversial goal by Fenech in the 119th minute rounded off the 4-2 scoreline. Seaford United was thrashed 8-1 by visitor Essendon United in their FFA Cup clash at North Seaford Reserve on Saturday. The goalfest got under way in the 7th minute and ended in the 90th minute leaving the home side to trudge despondently off the pitch at game’s end. Dylan Waugh’s header in the 62nd minute was Seaford’s sole response as Peter Modaferri (two goals), Mateusz Kowalski (two), Julien Cannizzaro, Christian Bellomo, Andrew Imvriotis and Sofiane Soufi all got on the scoresheet. Rosebud Heart travelled to Paisley Park on Saturday for its cup clash with State 1 North-West side Altona East Phoenix and although it lost 2-1 there were many positive aspects to its performance. “When you see a State 1 side wasting time against a State 4 side you know you’ve done well,” said Heart boss Scott Morrison. Heart was without injured trio Simon O’Donnell, Dave Greening and Carlo Cardoso and captain Daniel

Hodge limped off after 20 minutes with a corked thigh. Two goals in the second half to former Yarraville and St Albans striker Goran Jozeljic gave Phoenix a comfortable buffer but Blake Hicks chipped the Phoenix keeper from 25 metres in the 82nd minute to reduce the arrears. A stunning fingertip save by the Phoenix custodian in the 92nd minute denied Cory Osorio and stopped the contest from going into extra time. At Lawton Park on Sunday home team Langwarrin eased to a 5-1 cup win over State 4 West outfit North Melbourne Athletic. Langwarrin’s scorers were Connor Belger (2), Aaran Currie, Nabil Mozaffaruddin and Alex Metcalfe. Substitute Chris Begg got a late consolation for the visitors. It took until the 41st minute for Langy keeper Robbie Acs to be forced into a save and seconds after guiding a looping header onto the bar and over he was diving and gathering down low at his near post following a firmly hit shot from 15 metres. Acs was more active in the second half but Langy continued to dominate possession and maintain its interpassing style. A major blow for Langy was the loss of central defender Kieron Kenny who was helped off after just 12 minutes with a quadriceps strain that could force him to miss the first two games of the league season. His usual partner at the back, Andy McIntyre, was recovering from a bacterial infection so veteran Boris Ovcin played in a central defensive role. Disgruntled Langy midfielder Sam Scott is expected to sign for State 1 South-East rival Clifton Hill which should spice up an already tasty rivalry when the two sides clash this season. Meanwhile Frankston Pines and Southern United are in talks which could result in Southern using Monterey Reserve as a training base. Pines could have some major infrastructure news shortly and the following friendly matches at Monterey Reserve have been confirmed: Tuesday 14 March, Pines v Ashburton at 7pm; Saturday 18 March, Pines v Riversdale at 3pm. Baxter defeated Healesville 3-2 in a friendly at Baxter Park on Saturday. Baxter featured Liam Tinsley, a 30-year-old former Clifton Hill midfielder and 17-year-old striker Travis Ernsdoerfer from Bentleigh Greens. Tinsley was impressive in the first half while Ernsdoerfer scored Baxter’s third goal. The club is keen to sign both players. Preseason friendly results: Frankston Pines 2 Heidelberg Stars 2, Baxter 3 Healesville 2.
