THE number of affordable rental properties in Kingston has slumped by 92 per cent over the past 10 years – making life even tougher for low income earners. Figures released by the Council for CORPORATE Homeless Persons show the number of homes able to be afforded to families on CORPORATE Centrelink benefits had shrunk to just 2.4 per cent of the total number of rental properties in Kingston, down

from 29 per cent in December 2003. The situataion for one-bedroom rental apartments was even worse, with none considered affordable for a single person on benefits. The affordability figure for twobedroom apartments stands at 2.9 per cent for a single parent with one child on benefits, while only 1.9 per cent three-bedroom apartments were within reach of a couple with two children on benefits. Unemployment benefits are $255 a week, or $36 a day. © Photo by Gary Lisbon

These sorry figures reflect the growing “gentrification” of many suburbs once considered affordable, with rents having soared in recent years, forcing many residents to live in “housing stress’’ where more than 30 per cent of their income is spent on housing costs. And the story in the cheaper pockets of neighbouring suburbs is not much better, according to data from the state government’s Office of Housing. “It’s a very stark situation,” Council to Homeless Persons chief executive officer Jenny Smith said.

“We do assume people can find a cheap place to rent in Kingston, but with the rental increases we’ve seen in the past five years, on a low income you can’t afford anything.” This forces people to spend money on housing that should be used for the basics in life - their children, food and education, Ms Smith said. When the federal government’s welfare cuts begin on 15 January next year, housing and homelessness services are at a loss to explain how people will afford accommodation, she said.

Practical support comes in many ways but everything helps. A gift of 10 swags from Swags for Homeless will make sleeping rough a little easier for some of Kingston’s homeless. Chelsea Community Support Services manager Anne Catanese said the heavy duty bags were of good quality. “We know some people prefer to sleep rough rather than find a place in a rooming house so they will be welcome,” she said.

THE Red Cross turns 100 this year and, to celebrate, the Chelsea Unit held an afternoon high tea at St Andrew’s Church hall, Sherwood Ave last week. 109 members and guests raised $1500 to donate to the Red Cross’s worthy causes. Publicity officer Sandy Gilfedder said members worked hard throughout the year manning cake stalls and trading tables outside Chelsea Safeway, preparing Christmas and Easter hampers, holding barbecues at Mitre 10 and Bunnings stores and staging fashion shows. They also provide morning and afternoon teas to donors at the Red Cross Blood Bank when it visits the area – it’s all part of the good work the service has been providing for 100 years.

Anger mounts as village committees get cold shoulder Neil Walker neil@baysidenews.com.au KINGSTON councillors have been accused of trying to silence further debate about the possible axing of the village committees system of consultation. Councillors met on Monday evening to finish last month’s ordinary general meeting which was unable to be completed when it ran on until midnight on Monday 26 May. At that meeting, councillors narrowly voted five-to-four to put the village committees “in recess” until a new formal community consultation process was decided upon (‘Village committees canned’, The News, 28/5/14). Appointed residents of nine Kingston village committees have provided feedback to council on issues affecting the community at publicly open monthly council meetings since their establishment in 1997. Council started a review of the village committees system in July last year. At last month’s council meeting crs Ron Brownlees, Tamsin Bearsley, Geoff Gledhill, John Ronke and mayor Paul Peulich voted to suspend village committees’ activities until further notice. Crs Rosemary West, Steve Staikos, David Eden and Tamara Barth opposed the move. However, the village committees are due to meet one final time this month before they are suspended, to decide how to allocate community grants before the end of the financial year. Cr Geoff Gledhill introduced an urgent item of business at this week’s council meeting, seeking to have councillors advise the village committees “that the only recommendations to be considered from the village committees at the June Ordinary Meeting of council be those relating to village committee grants”. This would have effectively denied village committee representatives speaking at June’s council meeting, to be held later this month, about the community consultation review process and the likely abolition of the village committees. The item was not debated when council officers present at Monday evening’s meeting advised a majority of councillors would have to agree that it could be added to the agenda. Councillors were deadlocked at four-four on Monday, with Cr Ronke absent from the meeting. Former councillor Trevor Shewan, a member of the Patterson Lakes Carrum Village Committee, the most publicly vocal critic of the review process (‘’Secret panels slammed’, The News,

28/5/14), was prevented from speaking about the matter at council’s 26 May meeting. Mayor Peulich, chairing the meeting, said the village committee had not indicated they intended to talk about the review when submitting its recommendations to be discussed prior to the meeting. In Mr Shewan’s opinion, the failed manoeuvre to stop village committees discussing the issue at their June meetings is further proof some councillors were determined to shut down public debate. “It’s a joke – what sort of democracy do we have in the City of Kingston?” “It’s totally undemocratic and it shows certain councillors do not want to hear any dissent,” Mr Shewan said. Cr David Eden said the attempt to stop village committee members officially talking about the review was a way to try “stopping village committees pulling together to present their concerns about the review to council.” “It was a blatant attempt to censor the village committees,” he said. Cr Steve Staikos asked council officers to intervene when mayor Paul Peulich tried to use his mayoral casting vote to have Cr Gledhill’s item of business added to Monday evening’s agenda. “Some councillors just don’t want to hear feedback from the community at all,” he said. “Councillors, myself included, should always be willing to listen to opposing opinions even when that can sometimes be uncomfortable.” When contacted by The News, Cr Gledhill said there was no sinister intention behind his proposal. “Some people are always looking for ‘spooks behind the curtain’,” he said. “It’s a little disappointing that, when we started reviewing the village committees system, eight councillors agreed reform was needed and now some people seem to be taking it all far too personally.” Cr Gledhill said he had no problem with “vigorous debate”. “People are free to say whatever they like,” he said. “There are many ways they can make their views known, be it via ward meetings with councillors, calling council’s customer services line or writing letters to newspapers.” He said claims that debate was being silenced in an undemocratic manner were “completely incorrect”. Mr Shewan said he believed some councillors feared a repeat of May’s public criticism from village committee representatives at this month’s council meeting.

Date with destiny: Sam Soliman invited The News along to watch his preparation for Sunday’s successful world title bout in Germany against Felix Sturm. Pictures: Gary Sissons

Our new world champ KINGSTON boxing veteran Sam Soliman is Australia’s new king of the ring after being crowned world middleweight champion following his “surprise” victory over IBF titleholder Felix Sturm in Germany on Sunday. But the win certainly came as no surprise to the 40-year-old champion, despite it being his first-ever major international title over his 23 year boxing career, 17 of which have been as a professional. Soliman, who spoke with The News last month in the lead up to his title fight, dominated the 35-year-old Sturm, scoring a unanimous points decision in front of a partisan German home crowd in Krefeld, Nordrhein-Westfalen. The win was Soliman’s ninth consecutive victory during a run that has included five knock-

outs since last February to earn the number one contender status and the right to fight Sturm. Soliman trains at a gym in Moorabbin and has been living in Parkdale. He told The News ahead of the fight Sunday’s bout was his one big chance to claim the world title. “Getting a world title bout is like climbing Mt Everest. It’s taken me 23 years. You get to base camp and line up at the foot of the summit for your turn to conquer the peak.” “I’ve paid my dues, and I’m ready. My mission is to bring the IBF Middleweight World Title back to Australia.” True to his word, Soliman has now fulfilled his mission and claimed a place among Australia’s boxing greats. Chris Brennan

Rents out of reach of poor Continued from Page 1 “We have a number of no-fixed-address people and others that are couch surfing and they often don’t come up on government statistics.” Ms Catanese said her group had given out 15 swags since last September, mainly to single males, and a new consignment has just arrived. They will be in demand. “Most recipients are on Newstart of $252 and, as the average rooming house rent is $180-$240per week, they have little cash left over for living.” The swags are a godsend for those avoiding boarding houses due to the issues they find there: mental illness, substance abuse, anger issues and prison exits. “People who are struggling with their personal situations find they are compounded when they are housed with other individuals with complex issues. Mc Catanese said increasing numbers were presenting with an Acquired Brain Injury and they tended to “fall between the cracks of the social system”. “They are often unable to obtain private rental, mainly due to the way in which they present. They are usually receiving a Disability Support pension, or being managed by the State Trustees, leaving them to rely on rooming houses or, in some cases, the preferred option of sleeping rough.” Ken Gooding, coordinator of Pantry 5000, which distributes food to the needy, said Carrum/Seaford and surrounds had many low socio-economic areas and many former Housing Commission flats. Tenants are often single mothers struggling to make ends meet. “Each week we distribute 180-200 food parcels with over half going to single parent families. All recipients are on some form of government support and family or disability benefits.” Mr Gooding said a big jump in demand for food parcels occurred late last year when the government moved many recipients from Family Support to Newstart. “They’d come to us and say they’ve just lost $100 a week and can we help them with

a food parcel.” He said the ramifications of the federal Budget would likely have a greater impact when its cuts made themselves known. Hanover runs a low-income support service at Cheltenham and says its work is now increasingly focused on suburbs such as Kingston. “We see a large number of people experiencing homelessness in the city of Kingston through our Cheltenham service, often families who literally have nowhere else to go,” chief executive Tony Keenan said. “Our staff refers them on to other agencies, engage them in our innovative programs and provide them with access to short term and interim housing. “Hanover’s approach is integrated: we’re committed to providing sustainable pathways out of homelessness for people using our services – we run an Employment Service to ensure our clients can get work and housing. “Education is a really important focus for us; we are committed to keeping homeless children in school – we know that one of the best things we can do for kids is give them access to education. “Our Children’s Tutor program is run once a week in Cheltenham, volunteer tutors support children who have experienced homelessness, giving them a chance to get back up to speed with their schooling. “In addition to managing a large number of properties in the area, we also work with private landlords to get families and individuals into long term sustainable private rental.” Last year, Hanover helped 6500 people through crisis, transitional and private rental housing and support programs – with almost a quarter aged under 18. Also, it provided 115 crisis accommodation beds every night and assisted 832 job seekers through the Job Services Australia program. Sadly, one in five of its clients had a diagnosed mental health issue. Mr Keenan said the top three factors clients cited as leading to homelessness were financial difficulties and housing affordability, housing crisis (eviction and ending of lease), and family violence.

SecondBite serves up hope WINTER is the time when we need a hot, nourishing meal to help us through the day. For most of us it’s taken for granted, but the sad fact is that many residents simply cannot afford one. Not without help, that is… So, the support of organisations like SecondBite is crucial for local food parcel providers Pantry 5000 in Carrum, which helps 400 vulnerable residents and their families each week. SecondBite last week launched their winter appeal at St Aiden’s Carrum where Pantry 5000 is based. Coordinator Ken Gooding said SecondBite was “critical” to our operations. “Without SecondBite we couldn’t operate. We try really hard, with so many families among those we support, to give really good nutritious food. “We get really good food for kids to take in lunches for school and vegetables which can be

cooked in other meals at home.” Many local residents rely on the free food parcels to make it through the week. One single mum of three, said that without SecondBite’s help “we would be really struggling to pay for food for us”. “I know my kids eat a lot more fruit and veggies than they would without coming here; I am forever thankful,” she said. But SecondBite can only function with community help, and donations are needed for the 100,000 nutritious meals going to those in need by June 30. Pantry 5000 distributes food on Wednesday mornings from St Aiden’s Church at the corner of Mcleod and Poulston Rds. A donation of $20 will help provide 50 healthy meals. To donate phone 1800 263 283.

First cuts are the deepest Neil Walker neil@baysidenews.com.au A KINGTON retailer fears the federal government’s controversial costcutting budget, the first by the Abbott government, has caused consumers to keep their hands in their pockets and stop spending money, but believes some shoppers may be jumping at financial shadows. Notions Unlimited Bookshop owner Chuck McKenzie said small businesses had been doing it tough before last month’s budget, and the devil for retailers had been in the reported detail of proposed income cuts to the average household, including $3 billion in family tax benefits budget cuts. “Without wishing to bring politics into it, sales have sharped dropped since the announcement of the federal budget,” Mr McKenzie said. “Speaking to customers, there’s been massive concern about how the budget will affect their finances.” A series of reports from financial institutions, including ANZ Bank and NAB, have indicated consumer confidence has fallen dramatically since the budget was unveiled. An ANZ-Roy Morgan Research Consumer Confidence Report released this week stated consumer confidence surveyed had risen 2.9 per cent in the week to 1 June, but confidence was still 12 per cent lower than six weeks ago, when “negative newsflow related to the Commonwealth Budget began”. Other Kingston area shop owners contacted by The News declined to comment, reluctant to directly link

any drop-off in custom to the Abbott government’s budget. Mr McKenzie believed a reluctance to speak publicly about the problem was “understandable since people think it may make things worse”. He said there had always been “down times” immediately before and after government budget announcements but he had noticed the downswing in trade had continued longer after this year’s federal budget.

“People seem more frightened this time around and they’re worrying about budget measures that haven’t even come into effect yet,” he said. “They think it’s all done and dusted – it’s still all be passed by the Senate and there’s no guarantee everything will get through.” Mr McKenzie said some customers he had spoken to believed the $7 GP co-payment, for example, was already in force when this was not the case.

Notions Unlimited is an independent bookshop specialising in science fiction, fantasy and horror titles and pop culture merchandise. Mr McKenzie’s hoped shoppers would heed the advice emblazoned on the front cover of The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy: ‘Don’t Panic’. “By speaking out about this, I hope people realise they have to keep supporting local businesses, otherwise they may vanish.”

Number’s up in fight against crime Chris Brennan chris@mpnews.com.au POLICE commanders have rejected claims rising crime rates are due to cuts to the number of frontline officers assigned to suburban stations, despite a report showing there are now 20 per cent less “frontline” police on duty at Kingston police stations than in 2010. Latest figures released by Victoria Police reveal the number of crimes committed across the state rose 5 per cent rise over the past year, while Kingston’s crime rate increased 1.5 per cent. Drug offences surged more than 30 per cent in Kingston over the past 12 months, while residential burglaries jumped 17.4 per cent. However, the official crime statistics for the year to 31 March show significant reductions in the rate of offending in most other categories of crime, including a 22.9 per cent fall in the number of robberies detected, an 8.5 per cent drop in assaults and 17 per cent decrease in vehicle theft. Kingston police commander Inspector Bruce Wemyss said that although the overall rate of crime had increased, police were making significant inroads into curbing a number of high-priority criminal activities and undesirable behaviour. “In reviewing the latest release of crime statistics for the City of Kingston, although overall crime has increased marginally, we have achieved significant reductions in robberies, assaults and thefts of motor cars on the same time last year,” Inspector Wemyss said. “Unfortunately, we have seen an in-

crease in the number of residential burglaries. In response, we have allocated specific teams of investigators to target this offending. “This has been supported by plain clothes teams from our tasking unit. Live tasking and monitoring activities of recidivist offenders also form part of our response plan.” He said the rise in the number of drug offences detected had come as “no surprise” to police commanders and was “a sign that our intelligence processes and detection techniques work”. Police continue to be frustrated by the “unnecessarily” high rates of the thefts from motor vehicles, which increased 8 per cent over the year. Motorists failing to lock their vehicles and remove valuables was identified as the key to rising theft rates, Inspector Wemyss said. He said most instances of items being stolen from vehicles occurred at night from unlocked cars in driveways and local streets. “Many offences are opportunistic where property is clearly visible. Typical items stolen include laptops, iPads and mobile phones. I implore everyone to ensure that their vehicles and valuables are locked up.” Police commanders rejected claims the rise in crime was due to cuts to the number of frontline officers assigned to suburban police stations, despite figures revealing there are now 20 per cent less “frontline” police on duty at Kingston police stations than in 2010. Figures released last week by the state Opposition show Kingston was one of more than 50 police service areas across Victoria to suffer significant

staffing cuts. Police numbers at thirty of those areas were down 10 per cent, while Kingston was among 20 police service areas suffering cuts of more than 20 per cent, opposition police and emergency services spokesman Wade Noonan said. Mr Noonan said as many as 30 uniformed officers had been lost from some police service areas, with stations having trouble filling shifts and keeping up uniform patrols. He said in many cases, there was a direct correlation between the loss of local police and an increase in crime rates. The Coalition government had “reduced the number of frontline police at local stations at the same time as he has slashed Victoria Police funding by $113 million and cut 500 staff”, Mr Noonan said. However police spokesman Sergeant Kris Hamilton said that there

were now significantly more police serving Kingston and the Victorian community than ever before. “Looking at numbers within police stations alone presents a skewed picture of how many police are working in an area, because many of our police are not physically attached to the stations,” Sergeant Hamilton said. “They are working in specialist squads, tackling family violence, organised crime and offending on our roads. “These police are not always based at local police stations, but are still working in local communities, helping to keep Victorians safe.” Police Minister Kim Wells said there were now more than 1500 extra frontline police in Victoria than in 2010, with a further 200 to be recruited by November this year. “There are also more than 750 Protective Services Officers protecting commuters at rail stations, which is 750 more than there was under Labor. An additional 190 are still to come,” Mr Wells said. Victoria Police Chief Commissioner Ken Lay last week confirmed more police would be allocated to specialised units in the future, meaning there may be less police “physically attached” to specific police stations. Outlining details of a “blue paper” on the future of Victoria Police, Mr Lay said police resources would be deployed at a divisional level for appropriate crime fighting tasks. Mr Lay also hit out at political interference in police matters. “As an organisation, we have been significantly shaped by political par-

ties who propose changes and initiatives at election time,” the Chief Commissioner said. “Sometimes these decisions are not always based on research and the best evidence available. “But now with the release of the full Blue Paper, we have a chance to take some control back- to inform the debate and to set the direction for a modernised Victoria Police.” Mr Lay said police needed to build “greater flexibility into the way we deploy our resources”. “That is why we are now allocating police numbers at larger geographic divisional level so that police commanders have the freedom to move police officers from town to town as and when needed. In addition, we also need more dedicated, specialist taskforces that can help police tackle the greatest drivers of harm. Acting Senior Sergeant Ron Klajnblat of Chelsea police agreed greater flexibility in police allocations within service areas was the most efficient means of managing police resources. “When I first started in the police force, we be allocated to a specific station, but now rostering is done at a divisional level, in our case from our headquarters at Moorabbin,” he said. “Officers can then be allocated where they are needed, which not only provides the best coverage, but also provides flexibility for the troops themselves, which they appreciate. “If there’s a specific incident or operation, we’re able to place police officers where they need to be, and this is clearly the best approach for all concerned.”

Climate of fear: The future of the CSIRO’s laboratories in Aspendale is in doubt. Picture: Gary Sissons

Abbott goes cold on science centre Neil Walker neil@baysidenews.com.au THE CSIRO’s laboratories in Aspendale could be shuttered as part of a long-term plan flagged by the scientific research organisation’s management, with federal budget cuts also putting pressure on the ongoing viability of the facility. The Abbott government announced its intentions to slash funding to the scientific research organisation by about $115 million over four years and the Aspendale facilities, where scientists research the effects of climate change, looks like it could be on the chopping block. Before he was elected prime minister, Tony Abbott infamously said he believed “the so called settled science of climate change…is absolute crap”. CSIRO CEO Dr Megan Clark told staff immediately after the May budget was unveiled that employee numbers would be cut by up to 500. There are 6500 staff employed at more than 57 sites across Australia. CSIRO Staff Association president Dr Michael Borgas, an air quality scientist based at the Aspendale laboratories, said the site had been listed on internal CSIRO correspondence naming several properties to be closed and centralised to Clayton. “This has been on the agenda for a long time and it sent an alert to us (staff) making us wonder what was going on,” Dr Borgas said. “We’ve since been told management is working through the numbers and there has been considerable interest in what this means for Aspendale.”

When contacted by The News, CSIRO spokesman Huw Morgan said “no decision had been made” on the Aspendale research facility’s future. He said that the closure of the Aspendale site had been a long-term strategic possibility with the CSIRO’s publishing division, based in Collingwood, also earmarked for centralisation to Clayton. “Science and research will still continue,” Mr Morgan said. The CSIRO laboratories at Aspendale are a hub for marine and atmospheric research. Scientists analyse ice core samples, air quality, pollution and undertake climate and atmospheric modelling research at the Aspendale laboratories. Dr Borgas, a 27-year veteran at the CSIRO, said the Aspendale hub had a “proud tradition” of conducting research and making a positive contribution to Australia’s scientific community. Federal Labor member for Isaacs Mark Dreyfus opposed any move to shut the Aspendale site. He said closure would “mean the loss of important research jobs and infrastructure in our local community”. “The Abbott government is savaging our premier scientific research organisation forcing it to shed one in ten staff through $111.4 million in budget cuts,” Mr Dreyfus said. “The anti-science agenda of Tony Abbott will damage Australia’s ability to innovate and keep pace with the rest of the world.” He noted CSIRO Aspendale had conducted world leading climate change research for many years.

Deadly house blazes spark CFA warning THE CFA is warning Kingston residents about the dangers of house fires following a spate of deadly blazes across Melbourne’s south-east. There have been four fatal house fires in the CFA’s District 8 region, which takes in Kingston and Melbourne’s bayside suburbs, compared to two at the same time last year. CFA District 8 operations manager Trevor Owen said that while the coroner was still examining the causes of the deadly fires, residents need to be vigilant of potential fire hazards, especially during the cooler months. “Tragically four people have lost their lives and many more have been injured in home fires this year,” he said. “We are extremely concerned about these figures especially as the danger period, winter, is only just beginning.” In just five months from 1 January to 31 May, 70 residential fires have been attended by CFA District 8 fire crews.

There have now been more fatalities from house fires across Victoria since the start of the year than for the whole of 2013, with 10 deaths so far in 2014 compared to eight deaths in 2013. The single biggest cause of house fires was leaving items such as electrical appliances, candles or cooking unattended, Mr Owen said. A working fire alarm was the single most important element in saving lives, he added. “Don’t forget to check on older relatives, neighbours, or friends who may need help checking their smoke alarm or developing an escape plan,” Mr Owen said. As temperatures continue to drop, more people will be firing up their wood heaters, using clothes dryers and turning on electric blankets to stay warm, he said. “There are simple steps people can take to protect themselves to avoid a tragedy. These include making sure heaters are properly checked and

Heights was gutted by a fire that broke out late at night in Thames Promenade. No one was home at the time of the fire and police have deemed the cause of the blaze as “suspicious”. District 8 CFA members who also attended a fire in Rosebud on 7 May praised the actions of an elderly man who helped rescue his 77-year-old neighbour after her Rosebud bungalow caught fire. Five CFA trucks were called to the one-bedroom dwelling on Fourth Ave just before 9pm. District 8 operations officer Paul Carrigg said firefighters contained the blaze to the bungalow which was extensively damaged by the fire. “There’s no doubt that the quick action of the man to alert his neighbour may have saved her life and prevented her from injury,” he said. The 88 year-old man was treated at the scene by paramedics and the 77 year-old woman was taken to hospital for observation. There were no injuries. Chris Brennan

maintained, chimneys are cleaned, and power boards are not overloaded. “Ensure your home has a working smoke alarm, keep your clothing at least a metre away from heaters, and never smoke in bed.” Another danger area is the kitchen. Of the 1897 residential fires in regional Victoria last year, 37 per cent started in the kitchen. “Never leave your cooking unattended and keep electrical appliances in good working order,” Mr Owen said. “The most important message this winter is to take action – it’s simple and can save your life.” A Cheltenham mother and her six month old baby were lucky not to have been added to the deadly fire toll after fleeing their unit as a fire broke out on the second floor of their three storey apartment in Garfield St home in Cheltenham on 7 May. The fire started in a bedroom, with the mother alerted by the activation of a smoke alarm. On 24 May, a two-storey house in Chelsea

Hanover runs a low-income support service at Cheltenham and says its work is now increasingly focused on suburbs such as Kingston. “We see a large number of people experiencing homelessness in the city of Kingston through our Cheltenham service, often families who literally have nowhere else to go,” chief executive Tony Keenan said. “Our staff refers them on to other agencies, engage them in our innovative programs and provide them with access to short term and interim housing. “Hanover’s approach is integrated: we’re committed to providing sustainable pathways out of homelessness for people using our services – we run an Employment Service to ensure our clients can get work and housing. “Education is a really important focus for us; we are committed to keeping homeless children in school – we know that one of the best things we can do for kids is give them access to education. “Our Children’s Tutor program is run once a week in Cheltenham, volunteer tutors support children who have experienced homelessness, giving them a chance to get back up to speed with their schooling. “In addition to managing a large number of properties in the area, we also work with private landlords to get families and individuals into long term sustainable private rental.” Last year, Hanover helped 6500 people through crisis, transitional and private rental housing and support programs – with almost a quarter aged under 18. Also, it provided 115 crisis accommodation beds every night and assisted 832 job seekers through the Job Services Australia program. Sadly, one in five of its clients had a diagnosed mental health issue. Mr Keenan said the top three factors clients cited as leading to homelessness were financial difficulties and housing affordability, housing crisis (eviction and ending of lease), and family violence.

Continued from Page 1 “We have a number of no-fixed-address people and others that are couch surfing and they often don’t come up on government statistics.” Ms Catanese said her group had given out 15 swags since last September, mainly to single males, and a new consignment has just arrived. They will be in demand. “Most recipients are on Newstart of $252 and, as the average rooming house rent is $180-$240per week, they have little cash left over for living.” The swags are a godsend for those avoiding boarding houses due to the issues they find there: mental illness, substance abuse, anger issues and prison exits. “People who are struggling with their personal situations find they are compounded when they are housed with other individuals with complex issues. Mc Catanese said increasing numbers were presenting with an Acquired Brain Injury and they tended to “fall between the cracks of the social system”. “They are often unable to obtain private rental, mainly due to the way in which they present. They are usually receiving a Disability Support pension, or being managed by the State Trustees, leaving them to rely on rooming houses or, in some cases, the preferred option of sleeping rough.” Ken Gooding, coordinator of Pantry 5000, which distributes food to the needy, said Carrum/Seaford and surrounds had many low socio-economic areas and many former Housing Commission flats. Tenants are often single mothers struggling to make ends meet. “Each week we distribute 180-200 food parcels with over half going to single parent families. All recipients are on some form of government support and family or disability benefits.” Mr Gooding said a big jump in demand for food parcels occurred late last year when the government moved many recipients from Family Support to Newstart. “They’d come to us and say they’ve just lost $100 a week and can we help them with

Coast walker shore knows Port Phillip

Red letter day for green hub EVIRONMENTALISTS will have a new focus from Thursday – an Enviro Hub in Frankston. A community organiser at Environment Victoria, Jane Stabb, said the opening day was auspicious: 5 June is World Environment Day. She is liaising with a team of volunteers in Frankston who are “working hard in the community to raise the profile of environmental issues in Frankston, particularly around the transition to clean energy, smart and sustainable homes, and protecting our beautiful natural places”. The Eviro Hub will provide information and advocacy opportunities for residents on environment issues in the lead up to the November state election. “We have around 600 supporters around Frankston – and 20 active volunteers – who work with other local environment groups and talk to the community on environmental issues,’’ Ms Stabb said. “They go door-to-door talking to residents about environmental issues that are important to them.” “It’s worthwhile because we don’t think people have been asked these things before. Many of them would not have identified themselves as ‘greenies’ or ‘environmentalists’ but many issues are starting to resonate, such as protection of the Edithvale wetlands and the bay’s health.” Ms Stabb hopes the Enviro Hub will help build a strong network of environment groups whose members can talk to each other and raise the profile of environment issues. “Things we are finding out about Frankston are that people love the foreshore and the wetlands; they want to see these things protected.”

Going coastal: Author Graham Patterson is guest speaker at a Peninsula Field Naturalists Club event in Frankston and will discuss his walks along Port Phillip Bay’s coastline. Picture: Gary Sissons

AN author who has walked almost every kilometre of the Victorian coastline will be the next speaker at the Peninsula Field Naturalists Club. Graham Patterson will speak about his Coastal Guide to Port Phillip Bay – history, geology, plants and animals, and much more. Mr Patterson started walking sections of Port Phillip’s coast about 15 years ago and has since covered all 260 kilometres. The guide is divided into four sections: Point Lonsdale to Geelong, Avalon to Williamstown, Port Melbourne to Frankston, and Mt Eliza to Point Nepean. It contains general walking and safety advice, Aboriginal and European history, coastal animals and plants, landforms, and management. Mr Patterson, who started walking the Victorian coast in his mid-20s and is now in his mid-50s, spent hours researching his topic at libraries and historical societies and by talking with experts. He also returned to places previously walked, after having the book idea, to take photos and include historic images. “There are fascinating stories of human enterprise, such as Wilbraham Liardet’s original tourism business at Port Melbourne, coastal industries such as the cement factory at Fossil Beach near Mornington in the 1860s, and a depot at Altona for exporting explosives,” he said. The book covers the creation of Port Phillip and its repeated filling and emptying over millions of years, and the fiery formation of the volcanic western shore. “Some parts of the coast are not easy to reach, and maps and advice will help people find them.” The meeting is at 8pm on Wednesday 11 June at 16 High St, Frankston. All welcome. Details: Judy on 9775 4231.

Back to banish worries Go Away, Mr Worrythoughts! is a delightful stage adaptation of the award-winning picture book by Frankston author Nicky Johnston. Featuring three professional performers, puppetry, slapstick humour and songs, it’s described as an exciting adventure in developing emotional resilience for primary school children. Through the story of Bayden, and his struggle with anxiety, the production explores creative ways to zap ‘worrythoughts’. Johnston wrote the book to help her first child overcome anxiety. It was such a success that she wrote another, Happythoughts are Everywhere, as well as developing a resource kit for parents and teachers. She is now in demand as a guest speaker

Hospital rejects survey’s ‘among worst’ tag Stephen Taylor steve@baysidenews.com.au FRANKSTON hospital is among Australia’s worst-performing when it comes to federal targets to treat emergency patients within four hours. A report released last week by the National Health Performance Authority showed it was in the lowest 10 per cent of major metropolitan hospitals in the country on the measure last year. But Frankston Hospital’s director of Emergency Medicine, associate professor Pam Rosengarten, slammed the report’s figures as outdated. “They are an historical snapshot of 20122013 when, for a number of reasons, times were below target. “A great deal of work has been done across all areas of Frankston Hospital and the four-hour time-to-treatment has improved to 64 per cent and is continuing to improve.’’ The performance authority report said Frankston’s emergency department could only manage to admit and discharge 50 per cent of patients within the target four hours. It said that, on a state-wide hospital basis, about 67 per cent of emergency patients were treated in that time last year. The report – measured as a percentage - highlights the extent to which patients are able to depart public hospital emergency departments within four hours of arrival. Those presenting are subsequently admitted to the hospital, referred to another hospital or discharged. It includes data from 112 of

Australia’s major and large public hospitals, representing 76 per cent of the seven million patient presentations across the country in 2013. Prof Rosengartn said Rosebud Hospital, also part Peninsula Health, continues to meet and exceed all the benchmarks.

She said Frankston Hospital’s ambulance bay was “the busiest in Victoria” and received more emergency patients by ambulance than any other hospital in the state. “Despite the high demand, the time taken to transfer patients from the ambulance into hospital care

is currently better than the state benchmark of 40 minutes,” she said. “The opening of a new $40 million emergency department early next year will give us the resources to meet growing demand and improve our time-to-treatment performance.” To back up her comments, Professor

Rosengarten said that during the period January to March this year Frankston Hospital: n Accepted 5570 ambulance arrivals at emergency – up from 4881 last year. n Saw 15,645 patients at emergency – up from 14,243 last year. n Admitted 6620 emergency patients – up from 6038 last year. n Was on bypass two per cent of the time – below the state benchmark of 3 per cent. n Treated 100 per cent of the 93 Category 1 emergency patients immediately on arrival at emergency. n Treated 87 per cent of Category 2 patients within 10 minutes of arrival at emergency – up from 82 per cent a year earlier, and beating the state-wide target of 80 per cent. n Treated 91 per cent of Category 3 patients within 30 minutes of arrival at emergency – up from 82 per cent a year earlier, and above the benchmark target of 75 per cent. n Treated 94 per cent of semi-urgent Category 4 patients within an hour of arrival at emergency – up from 81 per cent a year earlier, and above the state average of 73 per cent. n Treated 99 per cent of non-urgent Category 5 patients within two hours of arrival at emergency – up from 91 per cent in the same period a year ago, and above the state average of 89 per cent. n Discharged 64 per cent of nonadmitted emergency department patients within four hours in the three months to the end of March – up from 61 per cent in the same period a year earlier. Frankston Hospital admitted 59,694 emergency patients last year.

100 YEARS AGO THIS WEEK...

The Mornington Racing Club inspect sites for racecourse Compiled by Cameron McCullough MESSRS Brody and Mason will hold their usual monthly market at Somerville on Wednesday next, when a good yarding is anticipated. *** THE usual monthly meeting of the Frankston and Hastings Shire Council was held yesterday. A full report will appear in our next issue. *** THE annual meeting of the Frankston Tennis Club will be held in the Mechanics’ Hall on Tuesday evening next, when a full attendance of members is requested. *** THE Mornington Progress Association working bees are still actively engaged on Wednesday afternoons erecting tree guards, seats, pathways, etc towards the pier. *** MESSRS J Murphy and R Stanley have been appointed joint honorary secretaries for the ball which takes place in the Convent Hall, Mornington, on Wednesday next. *** A PONY, to whom the owner (Mr R Grindal, of Moorooduc) was very much attached, died of old age during the week. The pony was 33 years old, and was bred by Mr Grindal. *** THE postponed dance, under the auspices of the Committee of the Girls’ Cot, to help defray the expenses of a Frankston child who has been in the infections hospital, will be held in the Frankston Hall, on Saturday, June 20th. ***

THE members of the Frankston Choral Society are very grateful to their conductor, who takes such an interest in their work. Mr F Earp has offered to test the ladies’ voices before the practice on Monday evening next. *** THE Cantata, entitled “The Building of the Cross” which was so successfully rendered, under the direction of Mr G Reed at Somerville and Tyabb, will be given at the Mechanics’ Hall, Frankston, shortly, in aid of the funds of St Paul’s Church of England.

A pony, to whom the owner (Mr R. Grindal, of Moorooduc) was very much attached, died of old age during the week. The pony was 33 years old, and was bred by Mr Grindal.

*** THE committee of the Mornington Racing Club inspected the proposed sites for the racecourse, but nothing definite has been done, as they are awaiting further particulars from Mr Blair and Mr Richardson. The committee will meet again tonight, to discuss the matter. *** THE Mornington Loyal Celebration League has made arrangements with Mr Marchant for an up to date picture

show on Monday night next (King’s Birthday), which will be a fitting termination to the day’s celebrations. Adults will be admitted on payment of 6d and school children free. *** AT the Frankston Court of Petty Sessions, held on Monday, before Messrs Clements, Crawford, and Williams. J’s P, Wm Stevens was fined 2s 6d for failing to send his child to school. A Coxall was fined a similar amount for the same offence, and Arthur Ryan was fined 2s 6d in each of nine charges in respect to two of his children failing to attend school the required number of days. *** RATEPAYERS are reminded that Wednesday next, 10th June, is the last day for receiving rates to entitle them to be placed on the ratepayers’ roll. Instructions has been issued by the Council to prosecute for the recovery of all unpaid rates after that date, so it would be well for those who have neglected to pay to do so at once, and avoid further trouble and expense. The Shire Secretary will be in attendance at Frankston on Tuesday next and at Somerville on Wednesday, for the collection of rates and any other business. *** FLINDERS SHIRE COUNCIL. The ordinary monthly meeting of the above council was held on Saturday last. *** CORRESPONDENCE: Health Department, drawing attention to risk of contamination to pies, cakes, etc., exposed on outside of glass cases or on counters in shops. It is desired, in accordance with a resolution of the Board, to draw the attention

of councils to this practice with a view to prosecuting offenders. Country Roads Board, stating intention of the Board to pay an amount by way of commission on account of supervision of maintenance works as well as construction works, but the scale of fees has not yet been decided on. E Elliott, Merricks, drawing attention to state of culvert on Hastings

to Flinders road, between Bittern and Hastings. He met with an accident on the 16th inst the wheel going through the decking, thus breaking the wheel, and asking for compensation. Referred to engineer.

A C R Stone, also complaining of state of road and damage to vehicle. Referred to engineer. J Walker, secretary Progress Association, Crib Point, re state of Stony Point road. To be attended to. J Matthieson, state of McArthur street, Dromana. The secretary stated that this had been attended to. E Wilson, Camberwell, re condition of roads leading to his property at Sorrento. West riding councillors and engineer to inspect spot and report. TENDERS: The tender of W Skelton for 200 yards of limestone metal for Sorrento Portsea road at 5s 2d per yard was accepted *** LETTER TO THE EDITOR Sir, Kindly spare me space in your columns to comment on the most deplorable state of the roads in the Hastings township. As I travelled by the evening train about a week ago, and in walking down I thought it was the mud flats I was on instead of a supposed metal road, for the holes in it are more like large crab holes than anything else. As I got into one and what with the road being flooded and the hole, I got wet up to my knees, As for the old fashioned lamps, you have to strike a match to find them. For a township like Hastings, it would be nothing out of place if the Council provided acetylene lamps, as they are greatly needed. The next morning as I went for a walk to see if I had left my boot in the hole or not, I was surprised to see a large heap of metal lying nearby, and so many holes in the road. Yours etc, A TRAVELLER. From the pages of the Mornington Standard, 6 June 1914

Performance FRONTIER Touring has announced the return of one of music’s most iconic groups to our shores. Renowned for their hit laden sell-out concerts, the Eagles are bringing their critically acclaimed ‘History of the Eagles’ World Tour to Australia and New Zealand in February/March 2015. Notably, it will be the band’s first visit to New Zealand in twenty years. Performing a massive run of shows, the tour will include indoor arena dates in Perth, Melbourne and Sydney as well as special outdoor concerts in Hunter Valley, Auckland and Victoria’s iconic Hanging Rock. The legendary Hotel California outfit will perform their career-spanning History Of the Eagles concerts, which sees members Glenn Frey, Don Henley, Joe Walsh and Timothy B Schmit deliver an incredible three-hour songfest of classic Eagles hits, including tracks the band had never previously performed live Including celebrated favourites such as Desperado, Take It Easy, New Kid In Town, Lyin’ Eyes and Take It To The Limit, the ‘History Of The Eagles’ global trek has already elated fans across the USA and Canada since their latest world jaunt kicked off in July 2013. Last in Australia in 2010 and New Zealand in 1995, the ‘History Of the Eagles’ tour is a mammoth production spanning the globe. Formed in LA in 1971, the Eagles’ seven albums, Eagles (1972), Desperado (1973), On The Border (1974), One Of These Nights (1975), Hotel California (1976), The Long Run (1979) and Long Road Out of Eden (2007), have sold millions of copies worldwide, the Recording Industry of America (RIAA) revealing they’ve sold over 83 million albums in the USA alone. The band reformed for a huge live album in 1994, Hell Freezes Over, and a three-year tour, which broke records worldwide and cemented the group’s place in music history. 2007’s Long Road Out of Eden was a defining disc, with the track I Dreamed There Was No War winning a Grammy for Best Pop Instrumental Performance, taking the Eagles on tour to countries as

far flung as South Africa, China and Dubai. Inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 1998, the year following the Eagles were honoured by RIAA for ‘Best Selling Album of the Century’ for compilation Their Greatest Hits (1971–1975). Notably this album remains the highest selling album of all time in the USA. The Eagles will appear at Rod Laver Arena on Sunday 22 February and Hanging Rock on Saturday 28 February. Tickets 132 849 for Rod Laver and Hanging Rock 136 100. *** ROXETTE will also appear at the Rod Laver Arena on Friday 20 Februray and Rochford Winery on Saturday 21 February. Special guests Boom Crash Opera. Tickets 13 28 49. www.livenation.com.au *** THE Mornington Winter Jazz Festival will be held 6-9 June. Bars, restaurants and parks will come alive with the sound of many jazz artists including

Katie Noonan, Vince Jones and Saskwatch. There will be a number of ticketed events and dinner shows to chose from as well as free jazz music performances held across Mornington all weekend. Tickets are now on sale and you can register online now to receive event updates. www.morningtonjazz.com.au If you would like to be a part of the festival, they encourage artists, community groups and business sponsors to contact the Mornington Chamber of Commerce on 5975 4522 or email info@morningtonchamber.com.au *** MULTI Award winners, The McClymonts have announced a brand new single, album and tour. The album Here’s To You & I will be released on Friday 4 July with the first leg of the album tour commencing the same day. Sisters, Brooke, Sam and Mollie McClymont have been working on their fourth album Here’s To You & I for the past year, splitting their recording time

between Sydney and Brooke’s ‘shed’ studio at her Central Coast home. Having spent most of the past few years in the USA, this is the first album that the trio have recorded in Australia in an effort to reconnect with their roots. The girls worked with renowned Australian producer Lindsay Rimes (Tina Arena, Lee Kernaghan, Stan Walker) on the record. The album is filled with heartfelt stories, irresistible tunes and that unmistakable honesty. The multi-talented sisters from Grafton have come a long way since they first joined musical forces seven years ago. Together they have released an impressive sixteen singles and three albums, and amassed two ARIA Awards (including Best Country Album), eight Golden Guitar Awards and an APRA Award. The McClymonts will appear at Palms at Crown, Friday 25 July and The West Gippsland Arts Centre, Warragul, Sunday 27 July. www.themcclymonts.net.au

the passing of “the dinner dance” phase. The Tower Hotel in Hawthorn has some tales to tell. Commiserations also to the Coalition voters who will suffer under Joe’s budget. Alas, knowing you lot, come the next election you will do the same thing. *** LOOKING on the bright side the harsher the budget, the more chance of getting rid of the deceitful duo. Mr Bland (Billy Boy) is not one to inspire confidence but surely this gives him something to work with. Oh, and thanks for the $175,000 for tour signage on the Mornington Peninsula. *** CONCLUSIONS: A tsunami of narcissism and skulduggery. Philosopher Alain de Botton says to draw pictures of “interesting things” proving the wisdom of philosophers? Perhaps draw a magpie? No, they’re gone, this year at least. I prefer dance. Nobody cares if you can’t dance well. Maybe log on to arts and culture on the Mornington Peninsula and beyond. Enough! *** WHENEVER there’s a TV news item on property values we see shots of a spiffy looking real estate agent slapping the pamphlet held hand on the other saying “sold” to the lucky buyer, the “lucky” assuming interest rates do not rise beyond repayment limitations. I’ve

attended a few with no intention to purchase, more a fascination of the agent working to the adrenaline of the last two or three would be buyers, or, as is sometimes the case, left hanging mid-air for want of any response. Not always, but sometimes pure theatre. Even better with a female auctioneer. *** SWINGING on a star? USA Senator Paul Tsongas, deciding not to run for re-election after being diagnosed with cancer. “No man ever said on his death bed I wish I had spent more time at the office”. We don’t spend enough time smelling the roses. It’s coming up ten years since my wife passed away. At my age I have nothing better to do than reflect. I was lucky on balance, chance being an enormous factor. Missed World War II, missed the Korean War, public service for 20 years, married 43 years, other jobs, kids, paying the debts. It was towards the end of my time in the public service I had a thought, as it happened my first original thought; the need for a balance between work and living. *** WE had our arguments about money, power and sex; who doesn’t? More a case of separate inner frustrations in living to a pattern (Is That All There Is, Peggy Lee), no matter the circle of friends. My wife tried a meditation group (so she said?) and painting,

enriching her separate world. I tried writing. The love remained as did the arguments but happiness was there in another form, richer. Separate and together. The benefit of computers is there, but only if it frees up time to expand and appreciate your world. The same applies to television. Both want your money, neither necessarily making you smarter. A good job is a good job but unless there’s more to it than money it has limited happiness value. Extend your boundaries if circumstances allow. We only get one shot at it. *** JULIA’S Tim Mathieson having a go at Tony Abbott’s lovely first lady thereby bring the full wrath of my favourite newspaper (Herald-Sun) down on him. Not too bright, Tim. Ditto Daniel Andrews on the suggestion of capping council rates to the CPI. Local government is separate. Cheap politics. *** MORNINGTON Peninsula Shire is poised for a new era, as in ‘bye bye democracy’ and farewell to Frank Martin and the Southern Peninsula Aquatic Centre. Sadly, the powerful win again. Best not to worry; move on. *** WITH all the talk of corruption (fixed gambling) in sport we Collingwood supporters have nothing to worry about. We already get robbed almost weekly

*** UK singer Adele has recently given her fans a hint that she may release a new album this year. The elusive singer has remained largely out of the public spotlight since the huge success of her 2011 album 21. *** FORMER Peninsula School student James Reyne has announced he will do a tour of Australian Crawl songs called ‘The Crawl Files Live’ in August. *** JOEL and Benj Madden are set to release their first album as a double act. The brothers, on hiatus from their band Good Charlotte, will release The Madden Brothers’ debut, Greetings From California, in October. It includes a single co-written with Pharrell Williams. *** Godzilla (Roadshow Films) has smashed its way to the top of the US box office. The 3D monster movie had the second largest debut of the year taking $100.9 million in the first weekend of release. *** A US lawyer is threatening to hold up the release of Led Zeppelin’s upcoming Led Zeppelin IV reissue over credit. The lawyer is representing the late Spirit guitarist, Randy California, who he claims inspired the classic tune, Stairway to Heaven. The lawyer, Francis Molofly, alleges the 1971 single, which appears on IV, was lifted from Spirit’s 1968 song, Taurus, and he is hoping to prevent the rockers from releasing the remastered album…. ***

A Grain of Salt I CAN’T say I’m shocked at Tony’s budget. He promised: no new taxes, no tax increases, no cuts to the ABC or SBS, no cuts to health or education, no pension or GST changes. He got the last one right but I remain a monkey’s uncle. The end of entitlement has begun, as our Treasurer predicted on that world stage (in London) last year in his speech to the movers and shakers. Tony’s answer (“I stand by what I said before the election”) was surely from Alice in Wonderland. Brazen for Tony, hubris for the ambitious blowhard Joe. Powerful bullies. *** THE 2 per cent tax increase for those paid over $180,000 - or $5 a week - is for those who don’t pay tax anyway. $245 million for school chaplains to provide our kids with spiritual guidance? The $7 for a doctor visit to fund medical science can be compared with Napthine’s monorail to Melbourne Airport. No change on the cost to government ($40 billion) of tax concessions on superannuation. Always nice to keep the top 10 per cent chosen ones happy. They need it to pay for their cigarettes. *** COMMISERATIONS to those born after 1965 (pension eligibility), including my daughter, who popped out unexpectedly after a wild dinner dance evening way back when. We oldies regret

Lego and other dark arts By Stuart McCullough DID you ever truly hate someone? So much so that their every success leaves a taste in your mouth so bitter that it threatens to ruin your tastebuds for all eternity? Where their slightest triumph or most feeble of victories is like a slap to the face with a wet hamster? An enmity so powerful that it is undimmed by years and distance? I’m talking about the kind of loathing where the mere mention of their name is like a kick in the down-belows by a hung-over Draught horse. I’m ashamed to admit it but I carry precisely that kind of detestation inside me. A bigger person wouldn’t let the accomplishments of others affect them so deeply, but this is a grudge that I have carried for most of my life and there’s not a snowflake’s chance in Laverton that I’m about to let bygones to bygones now. It’s gone too far for that. The simple truth is this: the fires of hatred burn brightly within me for one thing and one thing only: Lego. Let it be said from the outset that the feeling is absolutely, 100% mutual. Odium and abhorrence may well nest within my bosom for an educational toy and, granted, many would consider such naked revulsion to border on the unnatural, but it’s not just one-way traffic we’re talking about. Lego, too, despised me right from the outset. I’d go so far as to say it was enmity at first sight. From the moment I was first big enough to hold a plastic brick in my tiny hands and wonder who turned the television off because I’d rather be watching an episode of

The Banana Splits than wasting my time messing around with the Danish idea of a practical joke, we have been the most bitter of rivals. Some might look at a small plastic brick and see a house, a car or even an entire city, just waiting to be brought to life. I, on the other hand, saw something that didn’t taste very good, de-

spite my repeated efforts. In fact, it’s true that you can make almost anything out of Lego, except dinner. Then there are the little Lego people, with their plastic helmet hair that so closely resembled my own. Even as a child I could tell they were mocking me. I vowed to destroy them. But vanquishing an enemy is no easy thing, particu-

larly when they’re made of acrylonitrile butadiene styrene rather than your traditional flesh and blood. However, Lego has done more than just avoid being consumed by the vicissitudes of my smouldering damnation. It has thrived. It has flourished in a way that I could never have imagined. Indeed, I would go so far as to say that it is now more popular than ever. Just last week I received an email from an on-line bookstore to say that Lego would soon be putting out a new novel. Let me simply say that something is drastically wrong with the publishing industry if a bunch of oneinch figurines have published as many books as I have. The sales figures will, doubtless, be staggering. I’m sure that it will be a gripping read. But how should such a weighty tome begin? Perhaps something with a Dickensian feel will appeal to the masses. ‘It was the best of times, it was the worst of times, it was playtime’. Or maybe it will be in the form of a diary where we have to sit through the daily problems of an ordinary piece of Lego and its search for love. Sigh. Now that I think about it, the book’s probably a memoir – publishers love that kind of thing. If it were up to me, I’d make it a Choose Your Own Adventure book and make sure all the endings involved being melted in a furnace. Then there’s the Lego Movie that has been so wildly successful that there’s talk of a sequel. How predictable. Personally, I’d prefer a prequel to a sequel any day. Maybe they can get the Lego version of Jar Jar Binks to

appear and stink the thing up good and proper. So what’s left for Lego? A chat show? Reading the news? Big Brother contestant? Maybe a mentor on ‘The Voice’? It’s inevitable that they’ll put out their own album. And although I’d love to declare that the world simply has no use for records made by lumps of plastic, the on-going success of Madonna suggests there’s a market for that kind of thing. Let’s face it, there’s just no stopping them. Lego will rule us all. Clearly, my campaign of vilification has failed. Despite all my letters, the countless petitions and the ceaseless cyber-stalking, Lego has remained wholly immune to my efforts to destroy it. Enough is enough – perhaps it’s time to call a truce. After all, every war must end eventually. It’s probably up to me to make the first move. Perhaps I could kick off my ceasefire by watching the Lego Movie. Or maybe by reading the Lego Book. It couldn’t be any worse than The Bridges of Madison County. It’s time to admit that all this pettiness and vindictiveness is making me less of a human being. I ought to be a little bigger. In fact, I need to surrender and start afresh. Things will be better if I do. But that’s easier said than done. For no matter how hard I try, how often I swear I’ll change, it always seems beyond me. It seems that, after all these years, I… just… can’t… Lego. stuart@stuartmccullough.com

Eagles stop Kangaroos bounce PENINSULA LEAGUE

By Toe Punt EDITHVALE-ASPENDALE played some of its best football for the year to lead Langwarrin all afternoon in Peninsula League Football. The Eagles have been incredibly inconsistent this season, however apart from a lapse in the second quarter on Saturday, they controlled the match for the remainder and ran out comfortable 13.15 (93) to 12.6 (78) winners. It was a meeting during the week leading up to this clash that resulted in the turn around of form and general spirit among the group. Despite missing stars including Mark Mullins, Jarrod Garth and Tim Mavric, the Eagles were impressive. Matthew Clark, who was suspended by ASADA while playing for Frankston Dolphins a couple of seasons ago, made his return to football and was superb. Eighteen-year-old Angus Scott was dynamite and used explosive pace to his advantage, while 16-year-old Darcy Warke was tremendous for the winners. And then there was Stevey Mannix who dominated across half back and Brent Bowden who worked tirelessly across half forward and was the best player on the ground with four goals. When the team needed a shot in the arm, on the couple of occasions that Langwarrin was fighting back, Tim Mannix found the footy in dangerous areas and finished with a couple of goals. Matt Kremmer booted two goals up against the boundary line from long range but more importantly, kept Langwarrin’s Rikki Johnston deep in defence, which worked against the Kangas because they lost that drive. Matt Dimkos was a shining light for the Kangas, finishing with six goals. No question he is a stay at home forward and shouldn’t leave the 50 metre circle. Edithvale coach Troy Shannon said

it was a very different Saturday night at home following the win. “The last couple of Saturday nights (after losses to Mornington and Frankston YCW), “I’ve been laying on the couch with my baby daughter and we’ve both been sucking our thumbs,” said Shannon. “Last Saturday night, I was able to watch the Bombers beat the Tigers, which really topped off a great day.” Shannon said the game was a “little reflective” of his team’s year. “We play some really good quarters of footy and some really poor ones,” said Shannon. “I guess on Saturday we were able to play better for longer. “I thought we both played a similar style of game. I was impressed with

Langwarrin. They just seem a little light-on at the minute in terms of their body size.” There’s no doubt that Edithvale won the clearances and they were also a lot more potent in attack with Nick Connellan, Bowden and Kremmer all up there. Had Garth played, Connellan would have gone back and Dimkos wouldn’t have booted six goals. While Langwarrin started the year well, losses against last year’s grand finalists would suggest they are still not worthy of being included in talk of the top three teams in the competition. The Kangas will be fighting it out with Mt Eliza for fifth spot. Mornington is the sleeping giant after beating Frankston YCW. The Stonecats went into the game

without ruckman Ash Eames (hamstring), while the Doggies were notably missing Dale Nolan and Anthony Franchina. The Dogs got the jump on YCW in the opening quarter and despite being challenged in the third term, were able to push on and record a 10.11 (71) to 8.10 (58) victory. Jai Haddock and Michael Gay were outstanding in the ruck for the winners while Aidan Speedy continued his sensational season with two goals. Brad Ulms shouldered the ruck work for the Stonecats and did the job well. Tony Lester was solid and Scott Macleod finished with three goals. Bonbeach turned it on again on Saturday and continued to build its season, this time beating Mt Eliza. The Sharks opened up a three goal

break in the opening quarter and led by as much as 30 points at different stages in the second and third quarters. The final margin should have been greater considering the Sharks had an additional 13 scoring shots. They won the match 13.16 (94) to 9.7 (61). Shane McDonald was clearly the best player on the ground with six goals while Jackson Casey, Matt Batten and Anthony Raso were also dominant. Nathan Hicks finished with three majors. Karl Lombardozzi and Sam Gill worked tirelessly for the Redlegs. Tommy Shaw booted six goals to help Seaford to a 13.13 (91) to 10.11 (71) victory against arch rivals Pines on Saturday. The Tigers have been playing well but not winning this season. However, on Saturday, they were superb against the Pythons. There wasn’t a lot between the sides for most of the afternoon but when the game needed to be won, the Tigers stepped up. Brayden Irving was released from Dolphins’ duties and was the key difference between the sides, dominating for the Tigers. Nick Boswell also played his best game since returning to the club and coach Ben Crowe was outstanding also. Beau Hendry and Jamie Messina (three goals) were the best of the Pythons, while Guy Hendry and Shaun White also worked hard. Chelsea won its second game of the season, beating Karingal 16.12 (108) to 8.14 (62). Matty Baxter and Hudson Thomas each kicked three goals for the Gulls while Jayden Attard, Richard Jaroszczuk, Daniel Aarsman and Zac Graham dominated. Luke Van Raay kicked three majors for the Bulls and was one of the team’s best, while Grant Goodall and Tom Brennan were also very good for the visitors.

Buds bounce back into action

NEPEAN LEAGUE

By Toe Punt Rosebud’s season is well and truly back on track after coming from behind to beat Devon Meadows in Nepean League Football on Saturday. It was a must-win game for the Buds, who had won just two matches leading up to the clash. Despite losing three games by less than two goals this season, a loss on Saturday would have seen Rosebud miss out on the final five. Now, the Buds are back in the mix and at the end of the split round, will be just one game outside the top bracket. However, at half time on Saturday, it seemed the Buds’ season was shot. Devon Meadows played their best quarter of footy for the season in the second quarter, booted eight goals to two points and led by 30 points at half time. However, the Buds worked tirelessly in the second hour, thanks largely to skipper Ryan Spooner and Greg Bentley, and got themselves back in the contest. The Buds reduced the margin to eight points at three quarter time and booted 3.6 to 2.2 in the final quarter to sneak home by two points, 11.17 (83) to 12.9 (81). Devon Meadows coach Brent Clinnick said his team was devastated after the loss. “To have 19 inside 50’s in that sec-

ond quarter and play our best footy for the year, then not give a yelp in the second half was really disappointing,” said Clinnick. “I really rate Rosebud as a footy club and they just gone down to work in the second half. “We just didn’t have the same intensity or work rate and basically, we

chased bums in the second half. “The positive is that we are not far away, but with a tough month coming up, it puts us back to the pack a bit,” he said. To make matters worse for the Panthers, it appears star Beau Miller may have torn his ACL, which would be season ending. He came off at the ten

minute mark of the second quarter. “We get Brian Wapshot and Billy Hayes back next week but it’s another big test against Dromana,” said Clinnick. Pearcedale led from start to finish to record its best win for the season against Crib Point, winning 22.10 (142) to 16.20 (116). The Dales’ stars fired with Dylan Hoare getting a heap of the footy, Pat Cadd continuing his superb season and Patty Heijden playing his best game for the year with seven goals. Basil Sibasado also dominated once again with five majors, while teenagers Gordan Waterfall, Lachy Marshall and Aidan Simmons were first rate. Pearcedale coach Ben Cadd said it was a nice feeling having a win. “It was great to play a game of footy with plenty of enthusiasm,” said Cadd. “The boys were really up for the challenge and great belief in themselves that they could win the game. “We’ve played ten first gamers this season and at different times, some have done really well and others not so much. “On Saturday, everything clicked for them and they made a really good contribution. “The kids continue to improve and although there is some inconsistency, as long as we see them improve we’ll continue to get better as a team. “Hopefully the group now understands the levels we need to reach to be competitive and win games of

footy. “Although we were belted by Dromana, we still had almost 30 scoring shots and played some really good footy. “Improvement is all we can ask for,” said Cadd. For the Magpies, that’s two losses in a row. Hastings’ season is over after going down to Somerville by 24 points, 14.6 (90) to 8.18 (66). The Eagles’ jumped the visitors in the opening quarter and led by 20 points at quarter time. Even without coach David Hirst, the Eagles got an even contribution yet again with the likes of seasoned campaigners Stephen Crowe, Luke Collie and Timmy Hirst dominating. Brad Rowe was also very good, Justin Farrelly was back from a shoulder injury and Jake Ryan continues to play consistently good football. The Blues had good service from arguably its best two players in Justin Berry and Brendan Dunne, while Dale Alanis played his best game for the club. In the final game of the round, Frankston Bombers overcame a slow start to best Tyabb 20.17 (137) to 14.11 (95). Zac Longham booted five goals for the winners while Jay Reynolds and James Degenhardt dominated. Jake Anderson kicked four for the Yabbies and Rohan West three while they also collected the top votes.
