Stage fright A PLAY based on the Broadway hit The Addams Family Musical proved a winner for Parkdale Secondary College students last week. Audiences of around 750 attended the three performances at the school in Warren Rd and marvelled at the quality of the show. The cast of 49 “dedicated and responsible� students was led by Brad Marshall, who played Gomez, and Evie Georgiou, who brought the role of Morticia to life. Getting the ‘look’ right was a group effort, with the school’s textile department – and a number of parents – helping with costumes, while many cast members visited local op shops to find suitable garments. “We were thoroughly excited to present the musical as it is the first time it has been offered to schools to present,’’ production manager Gabrielle Skaltsis said. “This is the third musical we have presented and the feedback we have received has been extremely positive.� Picture: Gary Sissons

Village committees canned Neil Walker neil@baysidenews.com.au THE way Kingston City Council consults with the community is set to change after almost 20 years amid claims of “secrecy� and – ironically – a lack of consultation. Kingston councillors clashed during an at times heated debate at Monday night’s council meeting before a close five-tofour vote to suspend the village committees system of consultation that has

existed since 1997. Nine Kingston village committees consisting of appointed residents provide feedback to council on issues affecting the municipality. Members are usually appointed for a minimum of two years. The committees advise council and provide comment on council strategies, plans and its annual budget. Each committee presents feedback publicly from its meetings to councillors at Kingston City Council’s monthly council meetings.

Crs Ron Brownlees, Tamsin Bearsley, Geoff Gledhill, John Ronke and mayor Paul Peulich voted to put village committees “into recess� after the committees meet next month to discuss the allocation of annual community grants. It is expected the committees will then be formally abolished and a new consultation system put in place. Crs Rosemary West, Steve Staikos, David Eden and Tamara Barth opposed the move.

Councillor Steve Staikos said he had “a sense of shame about some of the decisions this council has made [in its current term]� and scrapping the village committees system would show some councillors did not like to hear community feedback they personally disagreed with. “It’s saying to people ‘we don’t like what you’re saying and we don’t want to hear it anymore’�, Cr Staikos said.

Investigators probe ‘suspicious’ blaze POLICE are appealing for witnesses to a Chelsea Heights house fire last weekend that has been deemed “suspicious”. The two-storey house in Thames Promenade was well alight when CFA crews arrived with three ‘pumpers’ at 11.30pm on Saturday. They brought the fire under control in about 25 minutes. ‘’A female occupant was not at home at the time, however investigators are yet to establish whether anyone else was inside the property,’’ police media later confirmed. As yet there are no estimates of the cost of property damages. Any witnesses are urged to ring Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000.

Bauer turns up heat on Canberra ‘colleagues’ Neil Walker neil@baysidenews.com.au CRITICISM of the Abbott government’s first budget shows no sign of abating, two weeks after controversial cost-cutting measures were unveiled by Treasurer Joe Hockey. Organisations such as the Victorian Council of Social Services (VCOSS) fear the most disadvantaged people in society – the young, the unemployed, the disabled – will be hardest hit by some of the public services cuts (‘Battlers bear budget burden’, The News, 21/5/14) and even some fellow Liberal Party politicians reckon the federal government has gone too far with proposed health and education funding cuts. Carrum Liberal MP Donna Bauer has joined Premier Denis Napthine in setting party unity aside to criticise federal funding cuts that could force states to somehow find funds to ensure spending commitments are met. “The state government will send a clear message to Canberra of the impacts their cuts will have on local families,” Mrs Bauer said. State premiers are unhappy with an $80 billion federal budget cut to schools and hospitals funding, arguing the Abbott government is trying to “force” them to argue for a Goods and Services Tax (GST) rise. Mrs Bauer said she was “proud” of the state government’s $88 million investment in Frankston Hospital (‘Hospital expands as federal funding shrinks’, page 10) and said the federal government should be supporting this, rather than “undermining” the state government with federal budget cuts. The decision by the federal government not to match the previous Labor federal government’s

Better Schools – known as Gonski – funding beyond 2017 has also caused widespread discontent among state governments who signed up for Better Schools funding agreements before last year’s federal election. Mrs Bauer said Carrum electorate schools such as Belvedere Park Primary School, Kananook Primary, Bonbeach and Patterson River Secondary College had recently been allocated millions of dollars in state funding for redevelopments and refurbishments in last month’s state budget. “The state government is not investing in our schools just so the federal government can take it away with their budget cuts,” Mrs Bauer said. “As the member for Carrum I will always fight for my constituents to ensure that our schools and hospitals receive a fair share of state government investment.” Fellow Liberal MP, Lorraine Wreford, the member for Mordialloc, said: “The Premier summed it up perfectly when he said ‘Victoria is extremely concerned about the reduced funding for education and health’ and ‘[We] will fight for the best outcome for Victoria... We want our fair share of the funding.’” Federal Labor MP for Isaacs Mark Dreyfus condemned the Abbott government’s budget: “Tony Abbott’s first budget has failed Australians and will hurt local families, pensioners and young people.” He slammed the move to cut family payments, pensions and restrict access to Newstart for people aged under 30. He also noted it would cost Kingston residents more to visit the doctor after the introduction of the $7 GP tax. “This budget will significantly increase the cost of living for Victorian families,” Mr Dreyfus said. “They should not have to pay for Tony Abbott’s lies.”

Committees face the axe Continued from Page 1 He said other councils had looked at Kingston’s system but had decided not to go down that path. “People are allowed to disagree with councillors, but many of the village committees have become a body with people pushing their own personal or political agendas,” Cr Brownlees said. He cited the long-running Bay Trail debate as an example of an issue that had been “decided” by council, only to return “again and again” when, in his opinion, some village committee members refused to accept the final outcome of an extensive consultation process. Cr Brownlees believed there were other avenues for residents to bring council’s attention to matters requiring action, including calling council’s customer service department or contacting council online via its website or via social media sites such as Facebook. “Village committees have played a valuable role and they’ve been unique to Kingston but it’s time we revisited how community consultation can be improved,” he said. The system was previously reviewed in 2002 and 2009. Cr Rosemary West disputed Cr Brownlees’ claim that village committees disputed councillors’ decisions and said they merely debated issues with councillors and provided community feedback before councillors made decisions. “Some councillors increasingly disregard and disrespect the opinions of those in the community who disagree with their views,” Cr West said. She said the axing of village committees would be “a serious blow to local democracy”. Council began a review of village committees in July last year and committee members have become increasingly anxious about the review process, feeling they have not been included in the discussions. Councillors met “in camera” in March this year with former councillor and current Patterson Lakes Carrum Village Committee member Trevor Shewan going public with concerns changes

were being discussed between councillors “behind closed doors” (‘‘Secret’ panels slammed’, The News, 30/4/14). His views were echoed by other village committee members who addressed councillors on Monday evening. Aspendale-Edithvale Village Committee chairman Henry Corcoran said he was concerned about the “apparent secrecy” surrounding councillors’ talks about reforming council’s consultation process. “The village committees give a voice to ordinary residents,” Mr Corcoran said. Cr Tamsin Bearsley said the review was “a genuine reform process” and did not have a predetermined outcome. She told The News it made sense to “freeze” the committees since “we’ve had some serious governance issues” surrounding village committees. “The 60 to 70 people who contribute are very important in our community and are well meaning,” Cr Bearsley said. “But each group is operating differently and we need to take a step back and look at a new model for consultation.” Cr Bearsley did not elaborate on the “governance issues” which, she said, revolved around “conflicts of interests” that some committee members may not have even realised breached governance guidelines. “All we are saying is ‘here’s some options’,” she said. Cr West said the review process had been “a farce”. “This is a crash and burn council but I never expected them to burn the village committees,” she said. Council officers had recommended that village committees “be placed in recess until council has determined its position”. A report will be presented to council by 25 August identifying “new project/theme based committees for consideration”. Councillors critical of the move to abolish village committees noted such committees would not publicly present feedback to council.

Woman arrested after pursuit A 33-YEAR-OLD woman was arrested at Patterson Lakes on Mnoday night after a half-hour police pursuit across the Mornington Peninsula. Rosebud highway patrol Sergeant Peter Martin told The News a member of the public called police when he saw a car travelling erratically in Safety Beach about 9pm on Tuesday evening. The driver refused to stop when police tried to intercept the car, forcing officers to pursue the vehicle for almost 40km. Sergeant Martin said no-one was injured during the chase. “We’re grateful to the man who called to report the driver,” he said.

“The man was horrified when he saw how erratically she was driving and he’s done the right thing.” The female driver, who Sgt Martin said was “of no fixed address”, eventually stopped her car in Thompsons Rd, Patterson Lakes where she was immediately arrested. Road spikes were not used to stop the vehicle, according to Sergeant Martin. He said the woman was taken to Frankston police station. “She was released on summons and has been charged with conduct endangering life, traffic offences and reckless driving.” Neil Walker

THE proprietors of a Parkdale bakery received a nasty surprise on Monday when a car crashed through the front of the shop. The driver of the Ford Fairmont sedan had been parked outside the Old Western Hot Bread shop in Warren Rd Just after 8am when he took off in the wrong direction, after putting his vehicle into forward instead of reverse. The car crashed through the shops plate glass window and also damaged some supporting brickwork. Chelsea SES member Phil Wall said it was “very lucky” no one was injured in the incident. “At that time of the morning the shops are usually very busy with pupils from Parkdale Secondary College which is located close by,” he said. “There is also a small table and chairs inside the shop which is often occupied, but was not in use at the time.” When the first Chelsea crew arrived, the car had been reversed back into its parking bay, exposing the full extent of the damage caused to the shopfront. A City of Kingston building inspector attended the scene but advised that there were no structural issues. “With that information, it meant that if we could clear the rubble and glass inside the shop and make safe the front of the shop, the owners would be able to reopen for business,” Mr Wall said. “The crew set about the task and, once completed, even made signs for the owners and displayed them outside the shop to advise customers that the drive in was permanently closed but the shop was open for business as usual. “A very grateful owner then insisted that the crew received freshly baked pies and drinks for breakfast.”

THE state government’s budget commitment to improving Melbourne’s major roads network came into local focus last week when Premier Denis Napthine visited the site of the proposed Mordialloc Bypass. He announced a $10.6 million grant to prepare a detailed business case and to seek statutory approvals for the bypass linking the northern end of the Mornington Peninsula Freeway with the new Dingley Bypass. He was accompanied by Mordialloc MP Lorraine Wreford who said the Bypass would provide additional north–south road capacity, reduce delays on existing roads and cater to efficient movement of commuter and freight vehicles. “Further planning and development of the Mordialloc Bypass is great news for anyone that travels through this area and has experienced traffic congestion,” Dr Napthine said. ”We have already committed to building the Dingley Bypass. Construction will begin later this year and will be completed in 2016. The Dingley Bypass will improve travel times and freight connections in this vital employment area.” The premier said development of a business case and work to obtain statutory approvals was the next step in the project and would build on VicRoads’ analysis of the feasibility of the project. “In the morning peak hour, we see more than 3500 vehicles turn from the Frankston Freeway onto Springvale

New beginnings: Carrum MP Donna Bauer, Premier Denis Napthine and Adam Maguire and Peter Todd of VicRoads look over plans for the bypass at its proposed starting point at the corner of Frankston Freeway and Springvale Rd. Picture Gary Sissons

Road. In the afternoon peak, the number of vehicles turning onto the freeway can also result in extensive queues and delays,” Ms Wreford said. “This bypass would reduce traffic congestion and delays on Springvale Road, and improve traffic flow along this important bus route.’’

Improvements to overall transport network efficiency will reduce traffic on Wells Road, White Street, Nepean Highway and beyond – “a major issue in the local community.” Carrum MP Donna Bauer said that, combined with the Dingley Bypass, the bypass would reduce congestion and

improve safety on other local roads. “These projects align with key government strategies, such as Plan Melbourne and Securing Victoria’s Economy, and will ultimately boost productivity and improve safety and amenity on the road network,” Dr Napthine said.

Emergency workers fired up over cuts FIREYS, nurses and paramedics have ramped up their campaign calling on the state government to honour pre-election promises to boost emergency services funding. Hundreds of emergency services workers gave up their free time on Saturday 17 May to door-knock homes to tell residents they believe Premier Denis Napthine has “failed Victorians” thanks to “health and emergency services cuts”. The door-knock campaign was organised by the Victorian Trades Hall Council. Campaign officer Luke Hilakari said “Denis Naphine has failed Frankston”. “Frankston hospital is critically short of beds and there are 1505 patients waiting for lifechanging surgery in Frankston alone,” he said. Mr Hilakari said a lack of beds at Frankston hospital meant ambulances were often forced to wait to unload patients, causing emergency response times to blow out to “critical levels”. “Before the last election, Denis Napthine and the Liberal party promised to deliver 800 new beds in Victoria. To date, they have only delivered 43.”

State health minister David Davis visited Frankston hospital just days after the door-knock campaign, on Wednesday 21 May, to inspect progress on a $80.9 million four-storey expansion of the hospital. Mr Davis played down concerns about ambulance ramping times at the hospital, and said ambulance transfer times had improved with 86.3 per cent of transfers completed within a 40-minute target this year, up from 58.9 per cent in March last year. Ambulance Victoria’s statewide target aims to have at least 90 per cent of ambulance patients transferred to the care of hospital staff within 40 minutes. The United Firefighters Union has slammed the state government for failing to honour a pre-election pledge to hire 342 additional firefighters in the aftermath of Black Saturday in February 2009. Fireys carried banners and wore T-shirts bearing the slogan ‘Napthine Slashes, You Burn’ while visiting Frankston residents to discuss emergency services funding. Neil Walker

Post-budget bonus: Premier Denis Napthine last week visited Chelsea Primary School along with member for Mordialloc Lorraine Wreford to announce a $392,000 grant to upgrade the school’s facilities.

Funding bonus for Chelsea pupils CHELSEA Primary School was last week celebrating news it would receive $392,000 from the state government for major infrastructure upgrades. Premier Denis Napthine last week visited the school during Education Week with member for Mordialloc Lorraine Wreford to announce the unexpected post-budget funding windfall. “This investment means Chelsea Primary School can upgrade its facilities and deliver the best possible learning environment for its students,” Dr Napthine said. “The Victorian Coalition Government is committed to supporting local decision-making in education. That’s why it will be the Chelsea Primary School community which determines how the $392,000 will be spent and how best to ensure the best return for students.” The funding builds on a $16,141 investment from the Victorian government last year which

will be used to update the school’s music block. Dr Napthine said the funding would enable the school to continue to offer special activities, such as gardening classes in the school’s vegetable patch. Chelsea Primary School offers a unique curriculum for its students, including a wellbeing program, Korean language studies, visual and performing arts classes and cooking clubs. The school also offers a technology and computer program for students, and uses a blog to communicate news to families and the community. The funding announcement for Chelsea Primary School comes in the wake of state budget allocations of $1.3 million to upgrade Mordialloc College, $1.2 million for Aspendale Gardens Primary School, $457,000 for Mentone Park Primary School and $340,000 for Bonbeach Primary School.

Chelsea Mordialloc Mentone News 28 May 2014


Council pops bar’s bubble KINGSTON’S outdoor Pop-Up Bar faces the prospect of being popped down after councillors decided to review its liquor licence. Councillors have discussed the prospect of shutting down the bar and moving it indoors at Kingston Hall in Moorabbin, citing complaints about noise from nearby residents during the bar’s evening opening hours. Live music and DJs are a drawcard at the Pop-Up Bar. Cr Ron Brownlees introduced a notice of motion at this week’s council meeting (Monday 26 May) pushing for council to stop operating the Pop-Up Bar in the car park and immediate vicinity of Kingston Hall. “We’re selling grog in a public place…which is not our core business,” Cr Brownless said. He said council’s promotion of alcohol-free zones elsewhere while selling drinks – mixed and otherwise - at public events sent a mixed message. Cr Brownlees acknowledged alcohol was served at other council events including the Mordialloc Food and Wine Festival and Harvest Festival but said “this is different….those events are in a ringed off area and not near people’s homes.” In its two years of operation the Pop-Up Bar has made a $1000 profit this year and a $15,000 loss last year, due to set-up costs. Cr Tamara Barth said the Pop-Up bar was part of the “rejuvenation of Moorabbin” and more than 3000 patrons had visited in the six days it was open. “If some people don’t enjoy drinking outside, the message is simple – don’t go,” she said. The Pop-Up Bar operated for six consecutive Fridays from 7 February-14 March this year “from 4pm til late”. The News understands music stopped being played at the venue by 11pm at the latest.

Neighbouring residents had complained of excessive noise during the bar’s operating hours, according to Cr Brownlees and “police had become involved” during one incident. The alleged trouble was not caused by bar customers. A resident is believed to have hurled an item from a nearby apartment balcony. Police investigated but said they were comfortable with the bar’s set-up and operation. Cr Brownlees said the bar should be located indoors since council had recently “spent about $200,000 on an indoor bar there”.

Hospital expands as federal funds shrink Stephen Taylor steve@baysidenews.com.au THE new emergency department at the revamped Frankston Hospital will be three times the size of the old one with three new wards. It was of special interest to Health Minister David Davis who last week inspected the fourstorey hospital redevelopment due to be completed next year. The $80.9 million works are said to be ‘’on time and on budget’’. Standing on top of the building Mr Davis said: “The Frankston Hospital Emergency Department is one of the busiest in the state with close to 60,000 attendees each year, and this expansion will help meet that demand.” The department will have its own ambulance entry point – which is desperately needed as Frankston has the largest number of ambulance arrivals in the state. Ambulance transfer times have improved with 86.3 per cent of transfers completed within the 40-minute target this year - up from 58.9 per cent in March last year. They are expected to improve with the new development. The new emergency department will have dedicated paediatric, mental health, medical imaging with a CT scanner, and specialist treatment areas, including women’s health. But, while the hospital redevelopment may be good news for the minister, state government concerns that the federal Budget will rip $200 million out of health and education from July 1 must be galling. This includes the $7 co-payment to visit a GP – which may push more people into public hospital emergency rooms with the states footing the bill

and higher co-payments for medicines. “There are immediate and significant impacts on the Victorian budget on health, concessions and potentially education,” Dr Napthine told the ABC on Wednesday. “We’re putting more money into health and more money into education. We don’t want that undermined by decisions in Canberra.” Peninsula residents will certainly be affected by the cuts. But Peninsula Health says that, at this point, it is too early to tell what direct impacts the Budget will have locally. “State and federal governments are currently in negotiations and we expect that we will receive a response from them in the coming weeks. Whatever the result Peninsula Health will continue to provide the best care possible for our patients whilst working within the means we have.’’ According to Plan Melbourne, Health is the largest single source of employment in Victoria, providing more than 330,000 jobs in 2010–11. The health and social services sector is one of the largest contributors to the state’s economy, and contributes $2.5 billion to export earnings. Emma King, CEO of VCOSS, said changes to Medicare, including the introduction of a fee for people see their GP, will make it harder for people to get the healthcare they need when they need it – particularly in rural and regional areas where access to healthcare can already be limited.” “The new co-payment of $7 for each visit to a GP or to use of out-of-hospital pathology or diagnostic imaging services will stop poorer people from going to the doctor,’’ she said. “It was surprising to see that patients with concession cards and children aged under 16 will have to pay the fee for the first 10 services in each

year, up to a total of $70.” She said the introduction of Pharmaceutical Benefits Scheme co-payments and safety net thresholds would make medicines more expensive. “For most patients the cost of medicine will rise by $5 to $42.70 and people with concession cards will see an increase of 80c to $6.90.” Ms King said the effect of limiting access to health care – especially for people who are already disadvantaged – was a “step backward and will hurt many people across the community’’. “These changes will have a big impact on struggling families who are already having to choose between taking their children to the doctor and putting food on the table. This means more Australians will wait until they are much sicker before they seek the medical care they need.” However, Health Minister Peter Dutton said on the ABC’s 7.30 program that references to

Budget cuts in health funding were wrong. He said there would be a 9 per cent increase, year on year, in hospital funding reducing to 6.7 per cent from 2017. He disputed claims that the government was “taking $8.6 billion from the health budget’’ and that incentive payments – to ease waiting lists for elective surgery in public hospitals and improve the flow of patients through emergency departments – were not “gone’’. He said cuts would only occur “only if the states don’t achieve a certain level of activity, if they don’t have population growth in accord with the agreement brokered by (former) Prime Minister Julia Gillard. “We’re saying: ‘If you see more patients, if you do more hips and more knees, we will pay for that activity’. So, there is incentive for the states to see more patients and the Commonwealth, as I say, will meet its funding obligations in terms of that activity.’’

Soweto choir sings for Mandela

All the voices: The Soweto Gospel Choir will perform live at Frankston Arts Centre next month.

THE heavenly voices of the Soweto Gospel Choir will delight audiences at the Frankston Arts Centre on Sunday 29 June. They will sing in celebration of life and in honour of the late South African president Nelson Mandela. In recognition of his passing, the choir will dedicate their concerts to his memory with a section of freedom songs and his favourite hymns. The Grammy Award winning choir was formed in 2002 and has on many occasions performed for, and celebrated with, their Patron, Archbishop Desmond Tutu, and Mandela and, on his passing, sang in services around the world celebrating his life. These included the televised memorial service held in Soweto attended by President Obama and world leaders, a memorial for the Mandela Foundation in

New York with President Clinton and Morgan Freeman, and most recently, at Westminster Abbey as part of the Queen’s service attended by President Zuma and Archbishop Tutu. Other artists to have their work enhanced by the choir include Bono and U2, Aretha Franklin, Stevie Wonder, Robert Plant, Celine Dion, Red Hot Chilli Peppers, Peter Gabriel, Josh Grobin and Andre Rieu. But it all started here in Frankston in 2003 with their first ever-ticketed performance at the arts centre. From the streets of Soweto to the streets of Frankston felt like a long journey 11 years ago. And it was. But, since then, Soweto Gospel Choir has gone from being unknown to being heralded around the world as one of the great vocal ensembles. Bookings: 9784 1060 or thefac.com.au

Retiree loses everything to online love scam By Chris Brennan A FRANKSTON South retiree has been left homeless and heartbroken after being swindled out of her life savings in a sophisticated online love scam. Carole Ross, 64, lost more than $200,000, including all of her superannuation savings, after being duped by a “love interest” she met through an online dating website. “This has destroyed me,” Ms Ross said. “I’m emotionally distraught and financially ruined; I’ve lost my home, all my retirement savings, and my car is about to be repossessed. My life is ruined.” She has been forced to move out of her Langwarrin home and is currently leasing out a single room from a family in Frankston South. While well aware of the dangers of online dating and romance scams, Ms Ross never thought for a moment that her new found “soul mate” had been anything but real. After all, they’d shared an intensely passionate relationship over almost ten months, melding their futures - and finances - together in preparation of a promised “ever after”. Wedding bells were in the offing, the culmination of a whirlwind, fairtale romance that was set to fulfill the recently retired health care worker’s deepest longings. Not only was “Alex” attractive and considerably younger than Ms Ross, he was also very well off. She would never have to worry about money again. “If only I could have my time over again,” Ms Ross said. “It’s so obvious now that it was too good be true, but when you’re in the middle it, of all this passion and excitement, you don’t stop to think that it could be anything but real.” The saga began last August when a friend suggested she try to get back into the dating game by signing up to a dating website. She’d been separated for many years and was soon to retire from her long-term job with Peninsula Health’s Mt Eliza Centre to a life of “relative comfort”. A loving relationship was the one missing element in her life. After putting up her online profile, it wasn’t long before she received a response from prospective suiter, a “well educated, sophisticated gentleman” who claimed to live in London. They had much in common and plenty to talk about, especially with her being from England originally. They even shared a mutual friend – the same person who’d suggested Ms Ross try the website. Ms Ross never suspected her new beau might have mined details of her life from Facebook. “We’d talk every day – twice a day – on the phone,” she said. “We’d talk about everything. He was very sophisticated, well-educated and well-spoken. “We had a real connection and things quickly became more and more romantic.It was passionate and exciting. I told him things I’d never told another soul. I really thought he was the one.” “He told me he had a young son but his wife had died in a car accident about five years ago. He’d been devastated by her death and it had taken until now to be emotionally ready to try dating again.”

Love struck: Carole Ross lost more than $200,000 to a sophisticated online dating scam. Picture: Gary Sissons

Their relationship grew steadily deeper and Alex soon committed to moving out to Australia to be with her. She had finally found “the one” just in time to ensure her golden years truly were everything she had dreamed of. “He told me how he couldn’t believe he’d met someone like me, that he’d never met anyone like me before and that I was the person he was looking for. It was a whirlwind romance, very passionate, and I never suspected it was anything but true love.” “It was like a fairy tale and I was head over heels in love with this person, whoever he was.” With more than enough money for them to both live comfortably ever after together, Alex convinced Ms Ross to leave her job so she could concentrate her time and energy on getting everything ready for his impending arrival in Australia. That meant she was able to release her superannuation savings, which she planned to live off until he joined her. Not long afterwards, things started to go disas-

trously awry. The date of his planned departure kept being delayed as one problem after another struck. Then there was a “big business deal” that needed to be completed before he could join her, a lucrative transaction involving a shipment of cars for a fleet buyer in Ukraine. He had to travel to the troubled country to seal the deal. But as a sign of his commitment to Ms Ross, and to assist him resettle in Australia, the payment for the deal would be put into a bank account set up in her name. There was even an online banking site showing the amount of $990,000 assigned to Ms Carole Ross. Of course she couldn’t access it – yet. Then everything fell apart. “Corrupt” Ukranian police officers were demanding bribes (could she help, please, as he was able to access his own money). She’d need to wire him $6000, then $10,000 then another $10,000. Then she was informed by a “lawyer” that Alex was in jail after an altercation with another cor-

rupt official. There were more legal payments and fines she’d have to pay to help him get out. Then further expenses appeared, this time tied up with the business deal in the form of official government taxes and fees on the bank transfer. As it was now “her” money – how could she not but agree to pay up or risk losing it all. It wasn’t long before Ms Ross had exhausted her finances, $200,000 in all. But Alex and his Ukranian friends still had one more surprise: a late penalty fee of $49,000 was now required to release the $990,000. Of course it was her fault the fee was being applied as she hadn’t sent enough money fast enough. If she didn’t pay, they’d never see their big pay day. In desperation, Ms Ross turned to a financial adviser to try to raise the required funds. It didn’t take the business and banking expert long to smell a rat. A bit of digging revealed the image of “Alex” was a well known profile used in multiple international scams, a stolen identity now being peddled by numerous scammers. Luckily, Ms Ross didn’t raise the $49,000 to hand over to Alex. Despite confronting him, Alex still insists everything is legitimate. She is the one who screwed everything up by not handing over the rest of the money. And he’s the one who’s heart is broken. And there’s still a chance everything will work out, if only she can come up with the rest of the money. If only. “It’s horrible realising you have been deceived,” Ms Ross said. “I still find myself wondering ‘what if he is telling the truth’ but then I catch myself and realise how crazy that is.” “I never thought anyone would be able to scam me like this, but this just shows, it can happen to anyone.” And indeed, Ms Ross’ story is far from unique. In 2013 alone, the Australian Competition and Consumer Commission received 2770 reports of dating and romance scams, with victims losing more than $25 million. Of those, more than 400 people said they had lost in excess of $10,000, while 64 reported losing more than $100,000 each. A staggering 43 per cent of people who came into contact with dating and romance scams lost money – the highest conversion rate of any swindel reported to the ACCC. “Scammers go to great lengths to gain your trust, spending months and even years building a relationship with you,” ACCC deputy chair Delia Rickard said. “Once your defences are lowered, they spin an elaborate tale about how they need your financial help with a crisis, such as being ill or stranded and ask for money.” “Alarm bells should go off if they request money, especially via wire transfer. This payment method is popular with scammers as it is almost impossible to trace and it is rare to recover money sent this way. “Sadly, most of the people who fall victims to dating and romance scams sent wire transfers right into the hands of scammers who then disappeared or asked for more money, leaving the victim with an empty pocket and a broken heart.”

100 YEARS AGO THIS WEEK...

Somerville ladies thrown from gig; Empire Day celebrated Compiled by Cameron McCullough MR J Nott Marsh left on Tuesday for Tasmania, where he has gone on a business trip. *** MESSRS A Patterson and A Gerschwitz proceeded to Sydney on Monday, where they intend spending a few weeks’ holiday. The marriage of Mr H Lloyd and Miss Hanton is announced to take place on the 10th of next month. *** THE many friends of Mrs A Foster, of “Beachleigh” who recently underwent a serious operation will be glad to learn that she is now well on the road to a complete recovery. *** A PICTURE show was held in the Mechanics’ Institute, Mornington, on Wednesday night last, in aid of the funds of the Mornington Football Club, and was very well patronised. *** A FULL yarding of cattle of all descriptions is advertised for Messrs A. Scott and Co’s usual monthly sale at Tanti yards, which will be held on Monday next. *** MESSRS Brody and Mason will hold an unreserved clearing sale of household furniture and sundries on Wednesday next, on account of Mr W. A. Mohr, who is leaving the district. The sale will be held on the premises, Hastings Road, Frankston. *** THE Rev R Jackson, who has been laid aside by illness for some weeks past, has so far recovered, we are pleased to note, as to be able to again

take up his duties, and the congregation was pleased to see him again in the pulpit on Sunday evening last. *** WE regret to hear that Mr A E Gault, of Somerville, is still seriously ill, and his condition is causing his many friends considerable anxiety. He and Mrs Gault proceeded by train to Adelaide on Wednesday, where he will be under the care of his uncle, Dr Gault. *** THE Frankston Choral Society was well represented at their usual weekly practice on Monday night last, when there were 40 members present thus giving the conductor much encouragement in his work. Mr Frederic Earp conducted for the first time, and showed great tact and zeal in his effort to maintain the best quality of singing from the society. *** THE annual sale of gifts for the support of students in New Guinea, in connection with the Frankston Methodist Church, was held on last Saturday afternoon and evening. There was a fair attendance, which would have been considerably larger had not the weather been so threatening. However there was a fair amount of business done, the proceeds being not much short of that taken last year. *** MRS J and Miss L Thornell and Miss E Westaway, of Somerville, had an unpleasant experience several days ago whilst driving in a gig to Mornington. They had proceeded about two miles on their way when the pony trod on a loose piece of metal, causing it to fall, and throwing the occupants on top of the animal, which, fortunately was very

quiet. Mrs Thornell was laid up for three days through the severe shaking and shock. Misses Thornell and Westaway suffered slightly from shock. Messrs K Webb and E Meldrum went to their assistance, and the latter drove them home sprayed with mud. ***

Mrs Tute spoke of the power of the British Empire, its vast extent and its varied peoples. She referred to her residence in India, Britain’s greatest dependency, where 300 million of the King’s subjects attest the genius of the British race for government

A PLEASING function took place at the Methodist Sunday School on Tuesday evening last, when the local branch of the Christian Endeavor Society held a social evening for the purpose of bidding good bye to Mr E and Miss Hill, who are leaving the district to take up their residence in Melbourne. The Rev R Jackson, on behalf of members, in a few complimentary remarks, made Miss Hill a presentation of a silver serviette ring and to Mr Hill of a pocket wallet, as souvenirs of their connection with the Society. A short programme of songs and recitations was gone through, in which

Miss Croskell, Miss Gale, and Mr Ellis took part. the rest of the evening being devoted to parlor games. An excellent supper terminated a most enjoyable evening. *** FINE weather favored the Empire Day celebrated at Rosebud on Friday, 22nd May. In the morning the scholars, under their teacher (Mr Perrin) assisted by the members of the school committee and a number of parents and friends assembled in front of the school to perform the ceremony of saluting the flag, followed by three hearty cheers for “King, Queen, and Empire.” The gathering then proceeded into the schoolroom, which was gaily decorated for the occasion. Here interesting addresses were delivered by Mrs Clifford Tute (late of India) and Mr Alexander, J P. Mrs Tute spoke of the power of the British Empire, its vast extent and its varied peoples. She referred to her residence in India, Britain’s greatest dependency, where 300 million of the King’s subjects attest the genius of the British race for government, and dwelt on the pleasure it gave her – an English woman – to have the opportunity of addressing the children of this happier “Britain beyond the Seas,” where real want or poverty was unknown. Mrs Tute concluded by emphasing the need for the British nation throughout all the King’s s dominions being a united people if the greatness of the Empire is to last. Mr Alexander reminded his audience that they were on historic ground, for but a few miles distant was the site of the first settlement, so soon aban-

doned by Captain Collins, whose lack of prophetic insight was proved by Victoria’s present prosperity. He impressed on the scholars that the future destiny of this great land of Australia lay largely in their hands, to make or to mar, accordingly as they grew up noble men or women, or the reverse. A programme of Empire Day songs, recitations, and essays was then given by the scholars, each of whom received an Empire Day medal and a bag of lollies, while the best essays were rewarded with book prizes. After a hearty vote of thanks to the speakers the morning’s proceedings terminated with the singing of the National Anthem. In the afternoon, a programme of races etc. was gone through, and tea and refreshments were served to the large gathering by the ladies, to whom a hearty vote of thanks was accorded. The assemblage then sang the National Anthem, which brought to a close a successful and enjoyable function. *** MORNINGTON v. FRANKSTON; The above teams met at Mornington on Saturday, when the locals again had a full 18, while Frankston were very poorly represented. The play was fairly even after the first half, but in that time the damage had been done, and Mornington ran out winners with a substantial majority. Owing to the lateness of starting, the latter part of the game was played practically in darkness. Punctuality in starting should be strictly enforced. and the defaulting team or teams should be made to pay a heavy penalty. From the pages of the Mornington Standard, 30 May 1914


FOOD & ENTERTAINMENT

The rise and fall of a fatback idiot box By Stuart McCullough SOMEWHERE along the line, things got seriously out of whack. Once upon a time, home cinemas were the exclusive preserve of those who had indoor bowling alleys and monkey butlers. Not anymore. The default setting for television sets is now ginormous. It used to be the only time you saw a screen that big, it was surrounded by world leaders and they were watching a threatening message from some mutant super-villain demanding a mega ransom. Now people routinely sit and watch old episodes of Gardening Australia on screens that swallow their living room wall without so much as a second, third or even fourth thought. Things have changed. Just as a really expensive watch is water resistant to three hundred metres, my father is change resistant to a far greater depth. Flat screens are not for him – he likes to rock it old school style. In the hands of others, his approach to technology would be considered a masterful postmodern statement steeped in irony rather than a refusal to accept that the world has moved on. That he is slow to embrace the new is no bad thing. But there comes a point when confronting change becomes inevitable. There’s an old saying: if it ain’t broke, don’t fix it. My father, however, takes a more extreme approach and refuses to admit that something is clapped out and busted, even in the face of overwhelming evidence. It’s a trait that I have inherited. A couple of years ago, I was driving through Healesville when an unholy noise that sounded like a cross between

two pieces of metal arguing with each other and the last Lady Gaga album screamed from beneath the bonnet. But despite such a symphony of disaster, I vehemently denied there was anything wrong right up until the moment that smoke and flames and a catastrophic loss of power rendered my denial somewhat redundant. In the corner of my father’s living room it sits. Once it would have been considered large. Now it would best be described as a Tyrannosaurus TV; an absolute dinosaur. It occupies a space in a wooden cabinet. Grey and shaped like a small hippopotamus, it’s kind of like a shrine. But age has wearied it, just as age does all of us at some point. If there’s a program you want

to watch, you must factor in some vital ‘warming up’ time and turn the set on early. But no amount of time will save it entirely. Even if given a decent period to gather its thoughts, when a picture emerges, it is with a distinctly greenish hue. I’d go so far as to say everyone on screen looks as if he or she is part through transforming into either the Incredible Hulk or Kermit the Frog. Not that my father would ever admit as much. We decided to take matters into our own hands. My father was away for the weekend and we decided to make a decisive move. But there were some challenges, not least of which was the fact that whatever we bought had to fit into the existing cabinet. Replacing

his television was one thing; throwing out his cabinet and drilling holes into his plaster might transcend thoughtfulness and be interpreted as a declaration of war. We headed into Frankston. It’s been ages since I’ve bought a TV. A few things became clear very quickly – firstly, it’s no surprise that people mostly have gigantic televisions these days because that’s the only size in which you can buy them. It’s like wandering into one of those clothing shops that caters solely to the plus-sized person. The world has turned to the ‘Solway’ brand of thinking in which the sizing starts at ‘really big’ and just gets bigger. Smaller TVs aren’t made for the living room. Instead, they’re made for the bedroom,

the pantry, the thunderbox and whatever other nook or cranny people think they can’t survive without a TV. But these were too small for the cabinet. The next size was, alas, too big. In Goldilocks terms, we needed the one in the middle that was ‘just right’. It was the last of its kind – the final remnant of a discontinued line, the likes of which would never be seen again. Not so small that it would be swallowed by the gaping cavity of the cabinet and not so big as to not fit in. It was, in a word, perfect. But only upon our return to Tyabb did the enormity of the task we’d taken on become apparent. To install the new flat back television, we first had to remove the old one. I tried to move it forward in the cabinet without success. With all my might, I dragged it. As it sailed over the lip of the wood and the full burden of TV took hold of my shoulders, I realised that this thing might well weigh more than my first car. In its place, we plugged in the new set and tuned it, making sure everything worked as it ought to. After hours of effort, our mission was complete. I’ve never felt so proud. He rang, of course, to thank me. In the next breath he asked whether my brother had helped. I was insulted. As an adult, I am perfectly capable of installing and tuning a television by myself. Especially if my wife does all the difficult stuff. Suddenly flatter than the screen in my father’s living room, my pride felt like a fat-backed idiot box, cast upon the nature strip of life. But that’s okay. Sometimes you need to consider the big picture. A task now that is now easier than ever. stuart@stuartmccullough.com

Embarrassing defeat raises serious questions PENINSULA INTERLEAGUE By Toe Punt PENINSULA league coach Stevey Ryan believes that unless the league’s governing body, PCN Sports Alliance, gets behind representative football, the competition will go backwards. Ryan made the claim in the wake of the Peninsula League’s 85-point belting at the hands of Geelong Football League at Simmons Stadium on Saturday. Whilst the 21 players who represented the league did their very best, they were no match for the Geelong FL, who dominated from start to finish to win 18.18.126 to 6.5.41. Peninsula League was held scoreless in the final quarter and booted just two goals in the second half. Ryan, along with assistant coach Troy Shannon, led the team to a memorable win last season to earn the right to challenge for the title of number one country football league in the competition. However, despite the importance of the occasion, players, clubs, coaches,

officials and most importantly, the governing body, failed to provide the necessary support for the Peninsula League to be at their best. Eight players pulled out of the team in the week leading up to Saturday’s match. Another pulled out on the eve of the game, however, he is expected to line-up against Pines this weekend. The same thing happened last year in terms of the lack of commitment and support from players and clubs, however, it was masked by a great performance from those who represented the Peninsula League team. Ryan said it was time for everyone from the top to the bottom to take representative football seriously. “The recruitment of quality players to our competition depends largely on the performance of our league on the big stage,” Ryan said. “If we can’t get players, clubs and the league to support the country championships, then the competition will go backwards because we won’t recruit the very best talent.” Ryan said Geelong Football League

epitomised what representing your league was all about. “Their (Geelong FL) clubs made a commitment to representative football at league and club level, they have been training as a group since before the season started and they even trained with the Geelong VFL team in preparation,” Ryan said. “The result of all that was a super impressive performance from the very best players in their competition. “We were no-where near them, which is a shame when you consider it was one versus two in terms of leagues. “They simply blew us away and were a class above. “To our boys’ credit, they gave their all and even with our very best team, things would have been tough. “We’ve just got to decide whether we as a competition want to commit to interleague football or not. “If it wasn’t for Pines, Edithvale, Mornington and Frankston YCW Football Clubs supporting the concept this year, we wouldn’t have fielded a side. “Blokes like Ash Eames and Byron

and Anthony Barry have nothing to gain from playing interleague football but they put up their hand and give everything. “Where’s the support from everyone else? Blokes are pulling out with one week hamstring injuries! “I hear that certain clubs and players have an issue with myself or Troy Shannon, but this is about playing with the best in the competition and representing your league. Build a bridge and get over it, really.” “It’s got to start from the top to be successful and planning needs to start now,” Ryan said. Ryan also supported the concept of appointing coaches that can devote the time and effort to the task. “You need a team of people who know and love the league and are not involved at club level. “It’s tough to coach a club and to do this, especially when you’re ringing blokes to play up to the eve of the game, as well as not having the necessary support from the top “We are left to our devices and we do the best we can with the time we have.

“I’ve made written recommendations to PCN Sports Alliance about it and do you think I have heard back? (This scribe was also asked to write recommendations to the league last season and never received a reply). “I’m not sure why we are all expected to care about it so much when those at the top don’t support it the way they should.” Mornington’s Warwick Miller was outstanding for the Peninsula League at half back, Edi-Aspendale’s Stevey Mannix was superb, the two Barry boys led from the front and Angus Scott, who spends his time between Casey and Edithvale, was also very good. Lachy Wallace, who spends time between Collingwood in the VFL and YCW, was also prominent. Ash Eames had some hamstring soreness but Steve Ryan was quick to take him from the ground and never put him back on. “Eamesy wasn’t going to make a difference to the final result so it was important to ensure he was right for his club this weekend,” Ryan said.

Classy Nepean too strong for Central Murray NEPEAN INTERLEAGUE By Toe Punt DESPITE an under strength Nepean League team going into battle at Rosebud’s Olympic Park on Saturday, it proved far too strong for Central Murray FL on Saturday. Nepean League dominated in the opening and last quarters to run out comfortable 16.12.108 to 9.15.69 winners. Central Murray FL got with two goals on a couple of occasions late in the second quarter and got within five points in the third, but they were no match for the locals when the game was there to be won. It was no surprise that Nepean league won the match, even without a full strength line-up. Nepean League had just 12 players at the first training session. The lack of support from players and some clubs again highlighted that the support of the interleague concept is far from great, which is a direct reflection on the governing body, PCN Alliance, along with its member clubs. Dromana and Rye were very well represented with five and four players respectively each in the team, while Red Hill and Crib Point had three each. That’s three quarters of the team from four clubs. The match as a spectacle never reached any great heights, other than the performance of Sorrento goal kicking machine Leigh Poholke, who finished the afternoon with seven goals. Justin Berry was superb throughout the contest and highlighted his appetite for interleague football, while Crib Point’s Waide Symes and Red Hill’s Josh Mold provided a lot of run and grunt around the footy and run through the middle of the ground. While skipper Rhett Sutton was

overshadowed in the ruck, his athleticism and domination around the ground was a highlight of the match. Dromana’s new 6.11’ recruit, Blake McGrath, looked as though he was going to kick a big bag of goals after he booted two and handed Poholke he’s first major in the first 10 minutes of the game. The score line was five goals to one in the opening quarter. Nepean league coach Ben Holmes wanted more voice on the field in the second quarter from his charges and asked for McGrath to be left one-out in the square with fellow key forwards Poholke and Red Hill’s Jarryd Douglas to play higher up the ground. However, Nepean League started to get cute with the footy in the second quarter, which allowed the fired-up Central Murray to boot three unanswered goals and get themselves back in the content. Former Collingwood-listed player Toby Thoolen was providing a handful for the Nepean defenders. The margin at the long interval was 15 points. The third quarter was much of the same as the second. Central Murray came out fired-up, kicked the first of the quarter and reduced the margin to seven points. It was like Nepean League was waiting for a challenge. Poholke took the game by the scruff and along with Terry Wheeler, Symes and Berry, were able to regain their stronghold and turn a five-point margin halfway through the term to four goals at the final change. Despite Central Murray kicking the first goal of the final quarter, Nepean League dominated from that point on and ran away with a 39-point victory. The under 18s had a big win, booting 24.14.158 to 8.12.60.
