Testing site

COVID-19 tests being administered at a new pop-up site in Mentone Picture: Gary Sissons

Virus testing open for a week Brodie Cowburn brodie@baysidenews.com.au A NEW COVID-19 testing site has opened at Mentone Bunnings. The drive through testing clinic opened on Monday, 6 July, and will run from 9am to 5pm up until the end

of the week. Coronavirus cases in Victoria have been rising sharply over the last week. Over 120 new cases of the virus were confirmed by the Department of Health and Human Services on Monday, taking the total number of cases statewide since the start of the pandemic to over 2600.

In the Kingston municipality there are two residents with a confirmed active case of COVID 19. The virus has killed 21 people in Victoria. Victoria’s Chief Health Officer Professor Brett Sutton said “there is no excuse for not getting tested. We have people knocking on your door, coming to your neighbourhood, we are bring-

ing the testing to you. There are also several drive through and fixed sites where people can go.” “This virus is not selective, it will impact anyone it encounters, and personal contact is the clear source of its transmission,” he said. “We need everyone to do their part and ensure it is stopped in its tracks.”

The new testing site is at 23/27 Nepean Hwy, Mentone. Other nearby pop-up testing sites include Chadstone Golfers Drive, and Monash University Peninsula Campus. The Southland Westfield site has now closed. Testing is also available at Frankston Hospital and Carrum Downs Respiratory Clinic.

Second Bay Trail stage done WORK on the second stage of the Bay Trail has been completed. Construction of the project between Naples Road in Mentone and Rennison Street in Parkdale was finished last month. The contract for that section of the trail was handed to CDN Constructors Pty Ltd in May 2019 at a cost of over $5 million.

The next stage of works will take the Bay Trail from Rennison Street to Mordialloc. The finished project will link a shared pedestrian and cyclist off-road path between Mentone and Mordialloc. A safety report ordered earlier this year by Kingston Council showed that there were seven reported inci-

dents related to the project (“Seven incidents during Bay Trail works, The News, 13/5/20).

Performance for reconciliation effort THE Frankston Arts Centre will host a free performance online this week. A Musical Reconciliation will be live streamed on Thursday, 9 July. The show is led by the group Spirit Lines, which features percussionist Adrian Hearn, Indigenous Australian singer and songwriter Uncle Kutcha Edwards, and guitarist Daniel Jauregui. Mr Edwards said the work of Spirit Lines when it comes to reconciliation is “like dropping a pebble, a small contribution with tremendous ripples.” The performance will be the third in the Arts Centre’s series of online presentations during the COVID-19 pandemic.

I hold my culture strong to my heart and it gives me a voice and great sense of my identity.” “I look around I see empires built on Aboriginal land. I cannot physically change or shift this, though I can make the most of my culture in a contemporary setting and my art projects reflect my journey,” he said. The Spirit Lines performance will stream on the FAC Facebook and YouTube pages from 7.30pm, 9 July. More information at thefac.com. au


Golf course owners consider way forward Brodie Cowburn brodie@baysidenews.com.au THE owners of the Dingley Village Kingswood golf course site are considering their future plans after the state government released new guidelines for golf course conversions. The site was purchased by AustralianSuper in 2014 for $125 million. Plans to subdivide the land and build nearly 800 residential dwellings hit a major hurdle in late 2018 when Kingston Council voted to abandon the planning scheme amendment for rezoning (“Council tees off on golf course plans”, The News, 24/10/18). In June, the state government published their revised guidelines for the conversion of golf course land for other purposes. Those guidelines were shaped by the establishment of a “Golf Course Redevelopment Standing Advisory Committee” in August 2019. After the release of the new guidelines, AustralianSuper put out a media release which read that the company “welcomed the release of the state government’s planning guidelines for the conversion of golf course land to other purposes in Victoria.” “These guidelines will help determine the future of the former Kingswood golf course in Centre Dandenong Road, Dingley Village, which is owned by AustralianSuper,” the statement read. “AustralianSuper will consider the new planning guidelines as it determines the most appropriate way to proceed with plans for the site.” The document released by the Department of Environment, Land, Water and

Planning read that the final outcome of a golf course conversion should include the following: • At least 20 per cent of the land area to be developed is set aside as publicly accessible useable open space that contributes to an integrated open space network. This land may be encumbered by easements, reservations, heritage, vegetation or other conditions and make provision for land to be used for passive or active recreation. • Enhance and protect state, regional and locally significant environmental assets and biodiversity corridors. • Landscaping that delivers an appropriate amount of tree canopy cover (excluding active sporting areas) to mitigate urban heat effects and is at least equivalent to, or greater than the surrounding area. • Active transport links are provided into the surrounding area and must be provided on the golf course land proposed for redevelopment. The land is currently not in use as a golf course. In late 2019 Kingston Council ordered an inspection of the site to make sure the owners were complying with permits for tree and vegetation removal (“Golf course vegetation removal inspected”, The News, 16/10/19). More information on the golf course redevelopment guidelines can be read at planning.vic.gov.au/policy-and-strategy/ guidelines-for-golf-course-redevelopment More information about the Dingley Village site can be found at dingleyvillage3172.com.au

Fatal car crash A WOMAN is dead after a car crash in Pearcedale on 27 June. The woman was a passenger in a blue Ford station wagon which was driving along Baxter-Tooradin Road. Police believe that car had been speeding and veering onto the wrong side of the road before colliding with a grey Nissan Pathfinder at around 5.30pm. The station wagon driver, an 81-year-old Frankston man, was taken to hospital with life-threatening injuries. The Nissan driver, a 39-yearold Rye resident, was also taken to hospital with serious injuries. The passenger died at the scene of the crash. Her death takes the state’s road toll for the year to 111. Police wish to speak to witnesses who may have seen the crash or been in the area around the time it happened. Anyone with information is urged to call Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000 or submit a confidential report online at crimestoppers.com.au.

age by fire, prohibited person possess firearm, and theft of motor vehicle. The man will appear at Melbourne Magistrates’ Court on 21 July, 2020.

Car impounded A MAN was caught driving on a suspended license in Baxter last week. At 8am, 1 July, Somerville Highway patrol officers pulled over a black Ford sedan outside the BP on Peninsula Link. The 25-year-old Rosebud man driving was found to have a suspended license. Police also said that the car had “less than legal tread depth on the rear tyres, resulting in a defect notice being issued.” The man will receive a summons to court for driving while suspended and using an unroadworthy vehicle. The car was impounded for a month. A BLACK Ford sedan being impounded by police. Picture: Supplied

Gun, fire charges A MAN has been charged after a two year investigation into an alleged drive-by shooting and fire. It is alleged that multiple gunshots were fired into a home on Warrain Street, Frankston, on 31 May 2018. Car fires were also allegedly set that night on Warrain Street and Carramar Drive. On 26 June, a 36-year-old man was charged on summons with discharge a firearm at premises, reckless conduct endangering life, criminal dam-

Online danger CHILDREN are not safe online, says Detective Superintendent Jane Welsh. “The reality is that increased online socialising and other activities caused by the global pandemic provides a greater opportunity for online sexual offending and unwanted contact, particularly for children.” She recommends parents initiate online safety discussions early, monitor their children’s online activity, have access to their accounts so as to be able to identify risks, recognise signs of unwanted contact, and collect evidence and report suspicious behaviour. Detective Welsh said young people were also at risk of being targeted by predators online. “Inappropriate contact online can come from a range of sources including social networking sites, video and image sharing, gaming and instant messaging apps,” she said. “We have young people spending a lot more time online, possibly with limited adult supervision. “They are likely to be distanced from their friends and peers, so being online is a way to keep that connectivity. They might also be making new ‘friends’ online where, realistically, they have no idea who that person is. “They could be naive to some of the risks around these sites and apps and so become a target for predatory offenders.” Parents and carers are urged to have conversations about online safety and be aware of the risks.

Council planning audit complete Brodie Cowburn brodie@baysidenews.com.au AN internal audit ordered by Frankston Council into their planning processes and any potential risk for corruption has been completed. Earlier this year, all councillors at the City of Casey were sacked by the state government after explosive allegations of corruption were made at a series of IBAC hearings. It was alleged that some Casey councillors had financial ties to developer John Woodman. In response to the scandal engulfing the City of Casey, Frankston Council ordered an audit into their own planning processes. Auditors reviewed applications dating back to January 2013. They searched for applications made by parties named in the IBAC hearings, including John Woodman, Lorraine Wreford, Megan Schutz, and Wolfdene. Information made public in council’s most recent meeting agenda read that one planning application involving parties mentioned at the IBAC hearings had been referred to councillors for approval in October 2018. The News understands that a proposal to use a property at Sandpiper Place, Frankston for student accommodation was the matter which was considered by councillors. The full report prepared by auditors HLB Mann Judd was not made publicly available. The mayor Sandra

Mayer said “we have sought advice from our auditors and they confirmed that this report is also to be treated as confidential, however given the public interest in this matter council has committed to providing a version of the report highlighting the key outcomes and recommendations, which will be made available on our website in the near future.” “Audit reports are prepared as internal documents and aim to help council improve its performance. They are never designed for public consumption,” she said. The full report found that 44 applications or requests had been lodged by parties named in the IBAC investigation, but that only one had been reported to councillors for a decision, The News understands. It is understood that 40 of those were made by Watsons Pty Ltd, the Morningtonbased company of developer John Woodman. The report read that two “high risk” findings were made by auditors. They were the “inadequate conflict of interest declaration embedded in planning procedures/templates” and that there were “no record of meetings conducted by planning officers with the applicants”. The News understands that the internal review uncovered one application made to council which had falsely suggested that no meetings had been conducted between council officers and an applicant. It is understood that in that matter, a

Picture: Gary Sissons

council planning officer had conducted an onsite meeting with a Watsons employee, but that no minutes were recorded. It is understood that auditors found no documented record of the meeting, and discovered it through email communications. The News is not suggesting wrongdoing by any council staff. In assessing the Sandpiper Place matter which came before council, the report found that no councillors had declared that a conflict of interest in the matter. The report read that “based on the councillor and staff survey conducted as part of the review, no councillor has any affiliations with the re-

spective entities/individuals.” Recommendations made by auditors include ensuring all meetings are documented with minutes, making sure planning officers declare conflicts of interest, and finalising the conflict of interest policy as soon as possible. At council’s 29 June meeting, CEO Phil Cantillon said that the report was “comprehensive”. “The scope of it was measured against other councils to make sure we had the depth and breadth we needed,” he said. “We have got a good array of actions identified, some are low level but some are important we get in place.

A lot of that is making sure we have recorded discussions with developers going forward,” he said. In June, Kingtson council confirmed that more than 20 planning matters were set to be investigated as part of a probity review (“Scope of planning probe widens”, The News, 10/6/20). Kingston Council officers were asked to look at “controversial or noncompliant Green Wedge applications, Chicquita Park, Waterways, 44 First Avenue Chelsea Heights” as part of their initial work on the probity review. They found 1245 individual applications lodged that matched their search criteria.

Your hearing questions answered IS it important for patients to see an audiologist if they think they may be having difficulties hearing? Yes, if you are starting to notice difficulties it’s important to have a full hearing test. We don’t just test which sounds you can hear, we also check how clearly you can understand speech, in quiet and in background noise. Some common indications that you may have a hearing loss are: • Turning the TV up • Frequently asking for repeats • Not being able to hear properly on the telephone • Difficulty in noisy situations such as restaurants • Missing out on important parts of the conversation Often your partner or a close family member may be the first person to notice that you are having difficulty hearing. Is it true that a lot of patients don’t actually need hearing aids? Yes. Probably 25 percent of those that we see do choose to get hearing aids. Some people have a little bit of hearing loss that we just need to talk about, and continue to monitor. Are there steps people who aren’t ready for hearing aids can do to help combat hearing loss? Yes. Pick a seat in a restaurant where you can see the faces of the people that you are taking to. This can make it easier to follow what they are saying. With the television, if you’re

not ready for hearing aids, we can get a set of cordless headphones. These can be one of the best options for hearing the TV clearly. Are there ever very simple solutions to hearing loss? Yes. Sometimes a hearing loss can be caused by ear wax blocking the canal. If someone needs a hearing aid, should they always choose the most expensive, top-of-the-line model? Most people don’t need the most expensive hearing aids, fully loaded with all the bells and whistles. It really is patient specific. You don’t always need the absolute top-of the-line hearing aid technology, if the features that you need are available in something less expensive. At Chelsea Hearing, we always offer you a range of options, and it is up to you to choose something that you are comfortable with. You should never feel pressured to proceed with hearing aids that you don’t feel ready for. Are smaller hearing aids more expensive? Generally, the style of the hearing aid does not have very much impact on the price. There are very good, small hearing aids available at all price points. Larger hearing aids are not necessarily less expensive either. The good news is that the very small, comfortable hearing aids are suitable for most people these days. How much do hearing aids cost? Most people who are on a Centrelink pension (such as an age

pension or a disability pension) are eligible for the Office of Hearing Services Voucher program. This enables them to choose from a range of hearing aids that are “free-toclient”. These hearing aids have improved significantly over the past few years, and a lot of people are pleasantly surprised at how natural they sound, and how small and comfortable they can be. Pensioners can also choose to contribute to more expensive hearing aids if they wish. For people who are not eligible for the voucher program, hearing aids typically start at $2,700 for a pair. What brand of hearing aids to you recommend? Chelsea Hearing is an independent clinic. We fit hearing aids from all of the major manufacturers. Our recommendations are made after we have tested your hearing, looked in your ears, and had a discussion about the things that you want to hear well. We also take the time to consider your preference for style and size of the hearing aids, as well as your budget. We will recommend the most appropriate hearing aids for you, and we will always give you a range of options to choose from. What is your philosophy on health care? If I wouldn’t do it for my Mum or Dad, I don’t do it for a patient. When I’m making recommendations for a patient, I think “if this was my mum or dad, with this hearing loss, and

these difficulties, would I be making the same recommendations?”. If the answer is “yes”, then I know I’m doing my best for a patient. What does the relationship you have with your patients mean to you? The patient comes first. The patient is your customer and you want to have the healthiest, happiest patient that you can. That makes me happy as well. To know that we are helping that patient to be happy is just rewarding. What is one thing about your job that really sticks out in a positive way? It’s really nice to be able to make a difference for people. Often the partner of the person with a hearing loss may have been repeating themselves and having to speak louder for years. When we help with a hearing loss (often with hearing aids) it’s often the family members who notice the benefit first. Suddenly they don’t have to repeat everything, and they don’t get so tired from speaking loudly all day. It can make a big difference for the whole family. Do you have rules that you live by when treating patients? My number one rule is to take things at the right pace of the individual patient. Some people come in here, and they know they want to get hearing aids and they want to get it all happening as quickly as possible. Other people come in, and they are having some difficulties hearing, but they don’t

know if they have a hearing loss. They may need a little bit more time to understand their hearing loss, and the options available. It doesn’t help anyone to push someone into getting hearing aids before they are ready for them, or to pressure someone to purchase hearing aids that cost more than they are comfortable with. Sometimes the best thing to do is explain what’s causing the problem, and what solutions are available. It can also be helpful to bring your partner or a close family member to your appointment with you.

Work starts on aged care hub CONSTRUCTION is underway on a new aged care hub in Mordialloc. The centre will also incorporate a child care centre and medical centre alongside their residential services. TLC Healthcare confirmed last week that work was underway on their new project, which sits opposite from Woodlands Golf Course. TLC Healthcare CEO Lou Pascuzzi said “I am delighted to officially break ground on this exciting

and innovative new development. At this location, TLC will be entering a new era of integrated health care with the opening of our first child care centre. Given the synergies between aged care, primary care and child care, it is a logical progression for our organisation to enter this field.” “TLC Early Learning’s first child care centre will be state of the art and located alongside an aged care home, and community medical centre; giving peace of mind to our parents. Parents

will also be able to join our onsite TLC Health Club, making it easier to fit in a workout or swim knowing their child is being well taken care of,” he said. The project is scheduled to be completed in 2022. The child care centre will accommodate for 120 places. The centre will also accommodate for 150 aged care residents. A swimming pool and café are also part of the plans.

IN Mid-May Frankston had recorded the third highest number of fines, 297, for breaking COVID-19 restrictions which came into force in mid-March. Only Melbourne, 590, and Greater Dandenong, 333, had a higher number of fines. Police on the Mornington Peninsula issued 203 fines in the same time frame, nearby Casey 249 and Kingston 113. The peninsula’s figures are sure to have grown since then with police handing the occupant of a house at St Andrews Beach, a $1652 fine on Sunday 28 June. Rye police said up to 18 guests were mingling at the Tiberius Road house when, acting on a tip off, they arrived and shut the party down at 1am. The latest fine statistics for local government areas were provided by Victoria Police to the Impacts of COVID-19 inquiry being run by State Parliament's public accounts and estimates committee. Close to $10 million has been raised with nearly 6000 fines issued. After being high on the list of council areas for the number of recorded COVID-19 cases in the early stages of the pandemic, the peninsula is now well down the list. By last Thursday the peninsula had recorded 63 cases since the pandemic started with no current active cases. Frankston had recorded 41 cases overall with just one active current case. The high early numbers on the peninsula were attributed in large part to the so-called Aspen group, whose members had recently returned from a skiing trip to the United States.

WHAT’S NEW...

Regional gallery’s 50th anniversary collection MPRG threw open their doors to visitors last week, on Wednesday 1 July, after being closed to the public for four months due to COVID-19. Gallery Artistic Director/Senior Curator Danny Lacy says, ‘The hibernation of our program gave us the unique opportunity to press pause and re-imagine the role of our gallery for the community and how we can best present the different ideas and narratives in the 1800 artworks we have in our collection.’ MPRG is re-opening with MPRG: FIFTY, an exhibition and major publication that celebrates the 50th anniversary of the MPRG collection. Founded in 1969 by Alan McCulloch, the Mornington Peninsula Arts Centre, as it was then known, acquired its first artwork in 1970. Over the past 50 years the Collection has grown to include over 1800 objects, including paintings, drawings, prints and sculptures. For those who are familiar with our regional gallery there will be some exciting surprises – six new collection rooms will take visitors on a journey through historical and contemporary representations of the Mornington Peninsula, as well as focus displays on Australian women printmakers from the late 1970s and early 1980s, National Works on Paper winning works, and a series of works that ruminate on the repetitive nature of automatic drawing and stream of consciousness narratives. A strength of the MPRG Collection is the focus on the cultural heritage of the Mornington Peninsula, which has long been a haven and source

of inspiration for artists, including famous names such as Fred Williams, Albert Tucker and Arthur Boyd. Many of Australia’s best-known artists have captured the region’s unique scenery and lifestyle and these works now form a valuable part of the Collection. MPRG has also produced a 50th anniversary collection publication featuring two key historical essays by Susan McCulloch OAM, Adjunct Professor, College of Design & Social Context, RMIT and daughter of founding Director Alan McCulloch and former MPRG Senior Curator, Rodney James. The publication features over 70 works with statements written by current staff, former staff and artists represented in the collection. The collection publication and exhibition will be launched online at MPRG TV on 23 July at 6pm. Following this is a weekly in conversation series that will be presented on Thursday evenings at 7.30pm. This new Artist Studio conversations series presents significant artists represented in the MPRG Collection, including renowned printmaker Raymond Arnold, Euan Macleod, Jess Johnson and Cameron Robbins. Be transported around the country and across the other side of the world as we gain an insight into the creative practices of these leading artists.

Shooting and fire at Baxter investigated DETECTIVES from the Armed Crime Squad are investigating a shooting and a car fire at Baxter, Thursday 2 July. Emergency services, including Hastings SES and Baxter and Somerville CFA crews, were called to a property on Grant Road about 3.45pm. Witnesses reported a fight between two men and an aggravated burglary during which a man was hit by a shotgun blast. A 30-year-old Baxter man was taken to hospital with serious injuries to his upper body. Police arrested another man, also 30, at the scene and charged him with firearms offences. It is believed the men are known to each other. Police said a “number of other people” were at the property at the time of the shooting, however no one else was injured. They would not comment on reports a chainsaw was involved. A burnt-out Ford Ranger utility was seen at the property after the shooting, and a truck’s windscreen appeared to have been smashed. Hastings SES provided lighting and remained onsite overnight. Anyone with information is urged to contact Crime Stoppers 1800 333 000.

POLICE found a burnt out Ford Ranger was parked in the driveway of a house at Baxter and a truck with a broken windscreen when responding to a report. Pictures: Gary Sissons

night at Frankston, the chairman, Cr W. P. Mason, presiding. There were also present: Cr. Howell, Messrs Hunter, Cotton, McCulloch, A. K. T. Sambell, Wheeler, W. Crawford Young, and the secretary, Mr. W. Klauer. The chairman extended a welcome to the Hon. A. Downward, M.L.A., who had kindly attended for the purpose of helping the movement along. Correspondence read indicated that much had already been done to create interest in the proper quarter. Mr Groves, M.L.A. and councillors of other shires wrote promising to attend the deputation, and it was shown that Melbourne residents owning property in the shire were also moving. Mr. Sambell, C.E. stated that he had made good head way with the task of taking levels, and he hoped to have all the necessary information ready in the course of another two or three weeks. Mr Downward said he was prepared to do his utmost to ensure the success of the undertaking, and would arrange with the Minister to meet the deputation. A vote of thanks to Mr. Downward and Mr. Sambell was carried by acclamation. *** A VERY fine record was put up by the ladies responsible for the management of the fancy fair recently held in connection with the Frankston Football Accident Fund. At a meeting of the committee on Wednesday night the financial result was announced.

Those present were: Mesdames C. Dalman, J. A. Cameron, and Scarborough, Misses D. Gregory (secretary), Gamble, and P. Twining, Messrs E. McComb and W. Crawford Young (treasurer). The secretary read the balance sheet, which showed the gross receipts as £77/19/6, while the expenditure was only £7/1/11, leaving £70/15/7 to the credit of the fund. Miss Gregory and Mrs Dalman, who did the “buying” in the city for the fair, were specially congratulated on the result. Mr Parker (President of the Frankston Football Club) attended the meeting, and invited the ladies to consider the question of holding another fair later in the season in aid of the club funds. It was decided to give further consideration to the proposal at a later date. The case of the Frankston player, McGinisker (who had his leg broken in a practice match just prior to the opening of the season) was considered and it was decided to pay him £1 per week from the date of the accident to the present date, the payment of the doctor’s fees in connection therewith being also authorised. The committee decided that future claims must be made through the club, the club’s executive to attach its recommendation to each member’s claim before submitting same for the consideration of the Accident Fund Committee. *** LANGWARRIN v MORNINGTON Accompanied by a goodly follow-

ing, Langwarrin visited Mornington last Saturday. The first time they met Mornington defeated the black and whites by 110 points, but in the meantime the Magpies have improved greatly. This time they were defeated by only 12 points. The scores were: Mornington, 6 goals 8 behinds; Langwarrin, 4 goals 8 behinds. Mornington’s best were Davies, Bidgood, Biggs, Allison, and Garlick. Parker, Upton, and Bond were very brilliant for the losers, but they were well-supported by Doctora (3 goals), Males, Dess, Upton, Bedcock, and Adderley. The game was played with plenty of spirit, and was well umpired by McComb. *** IN Memoriam DARCEY – In loving memory of my dear husband, George Edgar, who passed away to a higher life, 2nd July, 1919. I little thought when I kissed you goodbye, We were parted for ever, you to die; Could I, his wife, have clasped his hand, The husband I loved so well, Or pressed one kiss on his dying lips, And whispered, “Dear George, Farewell!” Inserted by his loving wife and children, Stanley and Winifred. *** FROM the pages of the Mornington Standard, 2 July 1920


THE MEANING OF EXISTENCE... AND OTHER SHORT STORIES

Great Conflicts of History – Mr. Whippy versus My Dog By Stuart McCullough IT’S impossible to get through this life without making a few enemies. Whether you’re at odds with a tyrannical regime, an evil despot or the driver of the brown Camira who won’t let you merge when entering the Monash Freeway, there’s a point at which conflict is unavoidable. But it’s another thing entirely to have a nemesis – someone whose very existence is implacably opposed to yours. I may have accumulated a few enemies but, to this time, am nemesis-free. The same cannot be said for my dog, Fozzie. My dog is a good natured and affectionate. Save for the risk of running out of dog biscuits, almost nothing strikes fear into my dog’s heart. Almost. But there’s an exception someone who never fails to scare her absolutely witless. Worse even than thunder. It’s complicated because her mortal enemy is not some evil ogre that robs people under bridges or leaps out from behind trees to scare children. It’s not someone who torments the waking hours of everyday, rightthinking people. Quite the opposite my dog is terrified of Mr. Whippy. I’m not sure quite where the relationship between Mr. Whippy and my dog went so spectacularly off the rails, but I suspect the seeds of conflict were sown when she was still a puppy. According to, if not legend, then at least my wife, my dog was a still a pup when she was out for a walk. It was during this walk that it’s claimed Mr. Whippy drew his van up alongside her and turned the music on. This, apparently, was all it took to freak out Fozzie. Ever since that day,

the first few notes of ‘Greensleeves’ are enough to send her into a complete tizz. It’s hard to know what to do when a Mr. Whippy-related melt down occurs. During thunderstorms, I play the piano and the dog lies down at my feet. I don’t know why, but it calms her down. On windy nights, she likes a strong pat. But when it comes to Mr. Whippy she’s inconsolable. There’s nothing I can do to comfort her – certainly comfort food like ice-cream would be nothing short of a provocation, to say nothing of impractical, given her complete lack of opposable thumbs. Things have taken a turn for the

worse. In this uncertain era of pandemic-driven isolation, Mr. Whippy is moving into unchartered territory. Once, we could expect him to rock up at the local park the moment it stops raining. However, with more people staying indoors, Mr. Whippy has resorted to trawling the streets in search of customers, willing to brave the outdoors in the quest for some soft serve. This means that instead of catching a snippet of ‘Greensleeves’ for a minute or two, we hear it for several hours as the ice cream van methodically makes its way up and down every street. The dog is unhappy with this development. Then, last week, things reached something of an unsustain-

able peak when Mr. Whippy decided to park in our street. Worse still, he parked directly outside our house. Finally, the showdown we’d been expecting but had hoped would never eventuate was parked in our driveway. The dog wasted no time in losing her canine mind and barking up a storm. It was an untenable situation that could only be remedied through an intervention. It was with this in mind and in these heightened circumstances that my wife marched out. Approaching the Mr. Whippy van, my wife knocked on the driver’s side window. The driver, who seemed somewhat startled, gestured for her to make her way to the serving window.

Perhaps he assumed he was going to have to hand over a choc-dipped double cone across the steering wheel, which is most probably a major breach of Mr. Whippy protocol. Having moved around to the serving window, my wife began to explain her predicament that, in simple terms, his very presence outside our house was freaking out our dog. The man was mortified. He was apologetic. He was, as soon became apparent, deeply confused in that he thought he was upsetting a human child and not a fifty kilogram canine. As my wife interrupted to clarify that Fozzie was not a child but a very large dog, the look on the man’s face graduated from concern to genuine befuddlement. When he asked what it was she wanted, my wife told him both to park somewhere else and prepare the finest single-cone, choc-dipped with chopped nuts known to humanity. Greensleeves – a melancholy tune at the best of times sounded especially gloomy as Mr. Whippy pulled slowly away, in search of a more welcoming environment. As my wife looked up, she saw kids racing for dear life, wailing and clutching crisp notes in their clenched fists as they tried to catch the van that was now travelling at quite a rate of knots. Meanwhile, the dog continued to bark until she could be sure that her nemesis was somewhere far away. We’ve heard nothing from Mr. Whippy since. I’m sure it’s something we’ll come to regret come summertime, but for the time being the dog is happy. And that, for the moment, will do. stuart@stuartmccullough.com

Can FV meet COVID challenge? SOCCER

By Craig MacKenzie FOOTBALL Victoria’s hopes for the 2020 season rest on avoiding a statewide return to lockdown. While clubs in the South and East of the currently regionalised junior NPL are set to complete the grading round of the season with another double header of matches this weekend the North and West competitions remain under suspension. The official line from the state’s controlling body confirms its dilemma. “Football Victoria is currently working with all clubs – Junior Boys, Junior Girls, Community and NPL Senior (Women and Men) – that are located in the North and West regions of Victoria to understand how our seasons can both commence and proceed given recent (state) government announcements on a return to stage 3 COVID-19 restrictions.” FV hopes to advise clubs this week of the outcome of its deliberations but much will depend on the success of the response to the present spike in infections. The pre-pandemic plan to grade junior NPL teams on the basis of results to align them with opponents of similar standard now seems a forlorn hope given the suspension of two regions and the added travel component of deregionalising competition. As things stand implementing the required biosecurity protocols was testing enough for clubs who took to the pitch last weekend. Of the three local clubs in junior NPL action Peninsula Strikers faced the extra challenge of hosting matches on Saturday and Sunday while Langwarrin and Mornington both had away fixtures as part of last weekend’s double header. Strikers’ vice-president Steve Schreck devised a map outlining the club’s plans to segregate Centenary Park for the visits of Dandenong City on Saturday and Glen Eira on Sunday. Both opposition clubs were sent Schreck’s map last Thursday and were able to distribute it to the parents of their juniors. Early last week Schreck measured various areas of the clubrooms knowing that it was impossible to apply the four-square-metre distancing requirement so Strikers decided to leave the

rooms shut. “The logic behind closing the changerooms is that you would need 64 square metres for 16 players and obviously there’s no such thing as a changeroom that big,” Schreck said. “By segregating parents and kids we can control the kids’ distancing. “All we can do is put the rules in place and do our best to ensure that they are adhered to.” Strikers sent an email to the club’s junior NPL parents confirming that matches were set to go ahead and alerting them to the measures in place. “Looks like we are go for the weekend. Here are the COVID-19 measures in place … (see image for reference). Home game both days – Blue home kit for both games, times are the same for both days. U13s: 10am kickoff, U14: 11:30am kickoff, U15: 1pm kickoff, U16: 2:40pm kickoff. “Please arrive 45 minutes prior to kickoff (earlier if you want a park near the fence to watch). “Clubrooms are closed except toilets and the referees’ room (which is now a changeroom). “Children are required to check in at the grandstand both days. The grandstand is the changeroom. Only players allowed in the grandstand. “Please make sure they arrive in tracksuit as it will be cold.

“No parent or spectator will be allowed beyond the carpark/clubroom areas (see grey marked areas). “Spectator sign in, sanitiser and toilets are at the clubroom. “I’ve asked all teams to provide three marshals to assist (we normally need two). Bring an umbrella if you are marshalling. “Make sure kids bring their own drinks and half-time snack if required. This has also been sent to the opposition clubs. Anyhow good luck all and see you there.” In the end Strikers’ biggest obstacle was the weather and Sunday’s round 9 fixtures against Glen Eira were washed out. But Saturday’s fixtures went ahead and Strikers achieved some excellent results. The under-13s leapfrogged Dandenong City on the ladder with a 1-0 win, a great start for new coach Danny Topping who has replaced John Meads. The side’s leading scorer Mehar Singh added to his season’s tally which now stands at 12. The under-14 clash ended in stalemate with neither side able to score. Dandenong had gone into the clash in third spot on the ladder five places above Strikers but the home side could have snatched all three points after crafting a rare chance following a cor-

ner late in the contest. Strikers under-15s conceded goals in the last five minutes to go down 3-0 but the home side had saved its best for the last of the four matches. The under-16 clash ended in a 1-1 draw with Dandenong City losing its top-of-the-table status. Dandenong opened the scoring in the 30th minute through Joseph Colarco but a minute into the second half Strikers levelled. A Strikers’ free-kick deflected off the defensive wall and Favour Okoronkwo’s cross to the back post was slotted home by Mark Deacon. Shay Power-Reeves was Strikers’ best. The younger brother of senior squad striker Jai Power had been out of the game for the past few seasons. In State 3 news Frankston Pines secured the signature of striker Matt “Hammer” Hames last week despite the former Strikers and Knox player attracting interest from other clubs. Pines boss Kevin “Squizzy” Taylor was the frontrunner in the race as Hames is a former Pines player and already had said how much he enjoyed the culture at the club. “We are really pleased to have signed a player of Matt’s pedigree,” Taylor said. “He’s a proven goalscorer at State League level and adds another dimension to our talented forward line. “His ability to hold the ball up brings those around him into play and his workrate is second to none.” In State 5 news Rosebud striker Mark Pagliarulo may assist the club with coaching as he recovers from a knee injury. Recent scans revealed that no surgery was required at this stage but the news is not all good. “There’s a small tear in my LCL but I’ve been referred to a specialist to look at the area that’s still in pain,” he said. “It looks okay per the scan but with constant pain they think there might be a small crack or chip in the bone or top of my fibia. “Won’t be playing anytime soon but looks like I’ll do a bit of coaching and help in any way the manager needs me. “He’s not got an assistant so hopefully I can slot into that role if I can’t

Walsh back in winner’s stall with Kalashani Lad HORSE RACING

By Ben Triandafillou MORNINTGON-based trainer Terry Walsh landed his first winner in almost a year with his stable star, Kalashani Lad, on Wednesday 1 July. Walsh, who has two horses in work, continued his affinity with the Sandown Racecourse to take out the sixth race with his nine-year-old gelding Kalashani Lad. Kalashani Lad, who has picked up his last three wins at the track, once again returned to winning form with jockey Luke Nolen in the saddle. Sitting in-behind the leading pack, the homebred gelding of Victoria’s Mr K Cox peeled off their backs rounding the turn before proving too strong in the run home to win by a length over the Lindsey Smith-trained Choisborder. Trainer Terry Walsh said the experienced gelding is racing as well as he ever has despite his rising age. “He’s as good as gold,” Walsh said post-race. “He’s as good as ever really, even though he’s a nine-year-old. “I doubted him a bit today with that weight (61.5kg), but he’s done the job.” When asked about his gelding’s successful run at Sandown, Walsh couldn’t quite put his finger on the reason for it but gave a strong push for jockey, Luke Nolen’s, partnership with the nine-year-old. “I used to always think he was better coming down the outside, but Luke’s done a marvellous job with him,” he said. “Three wins from four

rides on him. You don’t have to tell him what to do – he’s great.” With the victory, Kalashani Lad’s rating now jumps to 83 and will likely step up in grade next time he

steps out. Kicking off his career as a late-season three-year-old, he now amassed just shy of $300,000 in prizemoney for connections.
