Anti-pokies push gathers pace Neil Walker firstname.lastname@example.org A CALL for councils to financially back a campaign against problem gambling has been knocked back by Frankston Council as other south-east councils join the fight against pokies draining money from communities. Kingston councillors last month decided to pay $25,000 to become a
“tier one” Alliance for Gambling Reform partner while Frankston Council remains “a supporter” without contributing ratepayers’ money to the cause. The alliance is lobbying both sides of politics in the lead-up to next year’s state election to act on pokies reform to stem rising losses on the gaming machines. Alliance spokesman Stephen Mayne said he understood Frankston Council
officers had discussed the request to be an alliance partner with councillors but this had been “declined”. He said the group is grateful for any support in its “The Pokies Play You” campaign. “We’ve only got ten councils who’ve paid the full $25,000 - it’s a fair whack. Anyone who joins is a bonus.” Frankston Council is listed on the group’s website as an alliance “sup-
Comfort SALE from
porter” meaning council supports the alliance’s cause in principle. Discussions are ongoing with Mornington Peninsula Shire. “Fingers crossed they will step up and join the campaign,” Mr Mayne said. Victorian Commission for Gambling and Liquor Regulation (VCGLR) figures show $62.9 million was lost by Frankston punters on pokies in the 2015-16 financial year and $57.4 mil-
lion in 2016-17 with June’s losses still to be collated by the gaming authority. Mornington Peninsula Shire losses totalled just under $82.4 million in 2015-16 and about $76.1 million in 2016-17 with June’s losses to be added to the total. Kingston municipality pokies losses totalled about $83.5 million in 201516 and $76.1 million in 2016-17 excluding June losses. Continued Page 9

If the face fits: Photographer Richard Simpkin’s Locals of Frankston exhibition on display at the Frankston Arts Centre.
Time to face the faces THE people of Frankston are the focus of a photographic exhibition at the Frankston Arts Centre until October. Photographer Richard Simpkin’s Locals of Frankston features “a collection of remarkable photographs and stories of the people you may pass on the street every day”. Simpkin snapped a range of people, from residents to former mayors, to capture “a true snapshot” of the diversity of Frankston.
“It promotes Frankston in a positive way and I hope we can all come together for this wonderful exhibition,” he said. Faces of some of the photographed subjects are being projected on the FAC fly tower most evenings. See frankstonfaces.com or call Frankston Arts Centre on 9784 1060 for more details.
MORE than 30 police in 15 cars directed by a police helicopter tracked a stolen car along Mornington Peninsula Freeway and arrested five teenagers in Frankston, 3.15pm, Thursday 29 June. The chopper followed the unwitting boys in a Jeep stolen from Cheltenham as it made detours down side streets on its way south while guiding police ground units who lay in wait. Perhaps becoming aware that they were being followed, the Jeep turned off the freeway at Golf Links Rd and made its way along side streets. With the chopper’s help, police set up “stop sticks” in Glenview Crescent which punctured the car’s tyres and then dragged the boys to the ground. Detective Sergeant Paul Busuttil, of Frankston CIU, said the youths, aged 14-16, of Cranbourne, Dandenong, Noble Park and Elwood, were charged with offences including evade police, theft of a motor car, armed robbery, aggravated burglary, attempted burglary and carjacking, which occurred in Frankston, Moorabbin, Cheltenham, Dandenong and Box Hill over the past few weeks. Some of the youths were in breach of previous bail conditions. They were all remanded to appear at a children’s court at a later date. Stephen Taylor
CPR to Bee Gees’ beat ST JOHN Ambulance first-aid officers will teach shoppers and residents the basics of CPR to the beat of the Bee Gees’ classic Stayin’ Alive. The music is inside a transportable CPR lab in Bayside Mall, Frankston. It will be open 9am-5.30pm from
Monday 10 July to Thursday 13 July and 9am-9pm on Friday 14 July. The lessons by St John Ambulance trainers and presenters take 10 minutes. The first aid service provider says only 23 per cent of people are trained and have the confidence to respond in a first-aid emergency.
Guns amnesty AN amnesty aiming to take illegal guns, ammunition and other weapons out of harm’s way is underway. Gun owners have three months to surrender unregistered and unwanted firearms, ammunition and weapons, to licensed firearms dealers – not the police – without fear of prosecution. Police Superintendent Paul Millett said the amnesty was well timed. “It has been more than 20 years since there was a national amnesty and almost five since the last amnesty in Victoria when about 2500 weapons and firearms were handed in. “We want the community to help keep everyone safe by reducing the availability of unregistered firearms and illegal weapons to those who clearly do not want them for lawful purposes.” In previous amnesties firearms, including imitation and antique guns and rifles, swords, homemade weapons and hunting knives, were surrendered. Unwanted or unregistered firearms, ammunition or weapons can be surrendered to licensed firearms dealers without fear of prosecution. Licenced gun owners may surrender guns for destruction, registration or sale, while those not licensed can surrender them for destruction. They will not have to give their details unless they intend to register or sell them. See firearmsamnesty.ag.gov.au or police.vic.gov.au

Plastic ban plan is ‘in the bag’ SHOPPERS are being urged to bin plastic bags for the month of July to reduce pollution across bayside beaches and parks. Plastic Free July calls on people to refuse to use single-use plastic bags when shopping for a month to hopefully get into the habit of taking reusable bags to carry goods and groceries. The littering of plastic bags is an environmental hazard and potential killer of animals who can choke on the bags. The Greens are lobbying the state government to bring Victoria into line with other states such as South Australia and the Northern Territory in “banning” plastic bags at shops. “Our oceans and beaches are increasingly being choked by plastic rubbish,” Upper House South Eastern Metropolitan region Greens MP Nina Springle said. “It’s a blight on our recreational spaces and a stress on our waste management system. Much of it makes its way into the ocean where it’s devastating marine life around the world. “We can’t continue picking up trash forever. We have to stop plastic pollution at source.” A petition calling on the state government to support a plastic ban can be signed at plasticfreesea.com.au online. The bill, if passed, would ban single-use plastic bags, cosmetic microbes and “unnecessary plastic packaging” across Victoria.

BIRTHDAY SALE PROUDLY LOCALLY MADE IN OUR FACTORY Melbourne owned and operated
Say it with flowers: Tiana Byrne, Julie Stephens, Youssef (Joe) Khoury, Ramen Zwagerman, Talitha Mason and Anne Winning. Picture: Gary Sissons
Hospital care ‘blooming great’ Stephen Taylor email@example.com PRESENTING 60 bunches of flowers to doctors and nursing staff at Frankston Hospital’s Intensive Care Unit is former patient Joe Khoury’s way of saying “thank you” for a job well done. The gesture showed his appreciation for the comfort and care he received during a major abdominal operation and while he spent weeks recuperating. “On 3 May I discovered by accident that I had a huge intra-abdominal AAA,” he said. “On that day I was advised to seek an urgent referral from my local doctor to the vascular surgeon Dr Christopher Brooks, of Mornington, who sent me to Frankston Private Hospital to have a CT scan and other tests. “By the end of the day, I had done everything that needed to be done and called my family to be at home to discuss it with them. They are all grown kids: two boys and a girl and three grandkids. “I told them that all I ask is that they take care of each other and love one another. That was the worst part: facing reality with my kids.” Googling the scenario proved problematic for the children as Mr Khoury’s symptoms pointed to a serious problem. That knowledge was upsetting to them. “I was booked into Frankston Hospital on 25 May to have my operation but waiting for that day to come was so stressful,” he said. “You’ve got to have faith in God and I prayed. “Fortunately, everything went well. I was in the operating room for a long six-seven hours and then into ICU for three days and then to
Bass Ward level 3 for 14 days.” Mr Khoury said he “had recovered well thanks to everybody that was involved” in his treatment and care. “The team in the operating room led by Dr Brooks to the around-the-clock care in the ICU was wonderful,” he said. “Doctors and nurses were always on point looking after me 24/7 and they do it with the love and care. “There is no word I can use to describe how wonderful everyone is to take care of me like that. Every day I was overwhelmed: they do their job with care and they are so happy to help you in as many ways as possible.” Mr Khoury is angered that some people can criticise or even harm doctors and nurses. “When you hear people abuse the doctors and nurses in the hospital it makes you sick to hear about it on current affairs shows or on the news. “Why, why, why?” he asked. “They are there to help you and take care of you: we don’t go to hospitals for holidays, we go because we have a problem or we are very sick. Once you are in there the care and the treatment they offer is amazing. “I personally thank everyone for what they have done for me and I owe them my life.” Bass Ward nurse unit manager Julie Stephens thanked Mr Khoury for the lovely flowers. “They were truly appreciated by everybody and brought a lot of happiness to the staff,” Ms Stephens said. “Talking to Mr Khoury and hearing about the emotional support we were able to provide him during a difficult time was really good feedback.”

THE BAYS HOSPITAL
Having a baby in 5 star style THE newly opened $6million maternity unit at The Bays Hospital is more like a luxurious 5 star hotel than a hospital ward. Whilst The Bays has a long standing reputation for providing exceptional maternity care and the team is nationally recognised for their service, the maternity facilities were due for an update. The brand new unit comprising of all private rooms with tasteful yet practical modern furnishings provides the perfect setting to match the award winning service that is delivered by the team. Each room has its own ensuite with baby bath, bar fridge and large ﬂat screen television. Partners are always welcome and are encouraged to stay in hospital. Partners or a nominated support person are considered to play an important part of experience through the
antentatal, birthing and postdelivery support times. The Bays actively includes partner learning and support as part of their education and service. Each of the large new birthing suites has an ensuite with its own deep bath. The amazing baths have been a talking point in antenatal and new mum circles as being an important part of their birthing plan and experience. “Water, whether it be in a shower or bath (or both) can play a role in helping mums cope with pain during labour and providing for a calm birthing experience” says Marg Joyce, Midwife. The state of the art special care nursery is impressively equipped with everything that might be required if a baby needs close monitoring, is unwell or in the case of an emergency. The specialist paediatricians
are on site weekdays and on call 24/7. They are all highly trained specialists in neonatal care and are available to follow up your babies care locally should you need them ongoing or in the future. “Having a baby is one of the most important and special times in your life. Being supported by an experienced obstetrician and a team of midwives who offer woman centred care enables patients to feel safe and supported in their pregnancy and childbirth experience. This helps achieve the best outcomes for mothers and babies.” Dr Kelly Griffin, Obstetrician & Gynaecologist The supportive nature of the maternity team and the respectful, collaborative approach between midwives,
obstetricians and paediatricians makes The Bays a unique place. Making patient care and experience the best and safest it can be is their common goal. “When choosing your obstetrician make sure you feel comfortable raising issues with them about your body, your state of mind and your preferences and expectations for the birth. Having a baby is one of the most signiﬁcant and rewarding events in your life and it is important you feel supported and comfortable.” Dr Sarah Roberts, Obstetrician & Gynaecologist It is also reassuring to know that patient care does not end on the day that new parents leave the hospital. When you have your baby at The Bays, you become part of The Bays family
and the door is always open. Ongoing support is available 24/7 for new parents and The Bays lactation consultant often continues to help with breast feeding should issues arise at home.

Babes in arms of support A CRISIS pregnancy centre has celebrated its first birthday helping new and expecting mothers deal with the challenges amid the joys of newborns. The Babes Project supports pregnant women to tackle challenges around their pregnancies, often including domestic and family violence, homelessness, health issues, unemployment and family breakdown. Founder and managing director Helen Parker said Frankston operations helped meet a gap in social services and that demand at the centre was still growing.
â€œMore than 70 per cent of the women we see are referred from government services and hospitals, and we welcome the growing acknowledgement of the vital work we do to support and supplement the public health systemâ€?. The centre has helped 33 mothers and extended its opening hours this month thanks to taxpayers-funded $50,000 state government grant. The Frankston centre supports mothers from across Melbourneâ€™s south east region and the Mornington Peninsula. Australian Bureau of Statistics in
2015 showed these areas have two of Melbourneâ€™s top three highest rates of teen pregnancy. Weekly appointments and a range of practical workshops, classes and events, empower pregnant and new mums to take confidence in their motherhood at The Babe Projectâ€™s Frankston and Croydon premises. ď Ž The Babes Project is based at 9 Oâ€™Grady Avenue, Frankston. See thebabesproject.com online or call 1300 140 212 for opening hours on more details. ď€
THE 450 members of Devilbend Golf Club seem set to retain control of future of their golf course. Mornington Peninsula Shire Council has agreed to a new 21-lease for the Loders Rd, Moorooduc, golf course. However, the operations of the golf club are to be subject to a review by private consultants hired by council. The lease effectively rules out advertising that the golf course was available for lease or appointing a commercial manager, as recommended by the shireâ€™s property operations team leader, Greg Collins. The report to a council meeting in April with Mr Collinsâ€™ recommendations was dropped without explanation from the agenda. Mr Collins said granting the club a third 21-year lease over the Crown land â€œwould limit council control over the property to the terms and conditions of the leaseâ€?. At the councilâ€™s 27 June meeting property and strategic manager Yasmin Woods said granting the club a 21-year lease with an annual rent of $10,233 (plus GST) with three per cent annual increases would allow it to continue improvements outlined in a master plan. Although agreeing to the lease, councillors also agreed to the hiring of Golf
Business Advisory Services (GBAS) to report on â€œa review of the club and its operationsâ€?. â€œThe club has been at the site since 1974 and the proposed lease will provide for the continued operation and improvement of the well-established facility and security of tenure for the benefit of members and users of the facility,â€? Ms Woods stated in a report to councillors. â€œThe club is a not-for-profit incorporated association and employs six full time and seven part time staff.â€? An audited financial report supplied by the club for the year ending 30 June 2016 showed a net operating profit of $71,642 from an annual turnover of $1.36 million. â€œThis is in contrast to the previous year where the club experienced a net loss of $107,676 due largely to unforeseen legal and salary expenses,â€? Ms Woods said. In the 10 years to 2016 the club spent $760,000 on course improvements (not including of staff/volunteer labour); $41,900 on maintenance; and $594,000 to buy machinery. Mr Collins said granting the Devilbend club a five-year lease would allow council to work on a transition from the club to commercial management. He said the club could use the course if a commercial manager was appointed but would â€œno longer carry the risk of managing the facilitiesâ€?.

Planning loses out The new planning laws, “Vic-stupid”, being forced on municipalities around Victoria by the state government will treat large areas of green wedge land around Melbourne’s fringe the same as metropolitan Melbourne. This will lead to the fast death of the lungs of Melbourne for a quick buck by developers and at the cost of local populations. Three-storey developments and commercialisation of the green wedges without much oversight by councils will rip the guts out of the few green spaces left around Melbourne. We are very worried down here on the Mornington Peninsula, should be many other people in municipalities around the fringe of the metropolis. We need to keep our old planning schemes to protect us from the scourge of developers. Rupert Steiner, Balnarring Beach

I am very pleased that the Julia Gillard has been appointed chair of Beyond Blue. I am also very encouraged to read an article she wrote about her aspirations for people suffering from mental health illnesses. I am wondering and hoping that in her new role she might be able to help the mental health of the hundreds of refugees Australia has placed in detention centres, here on the mainland, as well as those poor souls languishing on Manus Island and on Nauru. Their only hope is that if the Ms Gillard takes a stand, using her new powerful position, and actually listens to the thousands of Australians who care about the mental health of these refugees and does whatever it takes to release them. So many of them are suffering from various mental illnesses. She should make it a priority. Most of them have suffered greatly from escaping their war torn countries, seeing and experiencing terrible atrocities only to be put in what one can only describe inhumane facilities. Act now.

Taxing losses The Alliance Media Communications adviser Stephen Mayne refers to maximum $1 bets to increasing the tax, which is discounted for some pokies operators, as reforms against pokies. He says “We campaign for reforms of the gambling industry that reduce the harm it causes” (“Pokies politics in play for election” The Times 19/6/17). Why increase the tax? Every time the tax has been increased within the last few years, the pokie machines have paid less and less to the operating public. That is, what used to be a worthwhile form of gambling is now not so. But most of the people still play the pokies, even though they know they would more than likely lose. They enjoy the social scene. But those that do depart are generally those who are the “bigger” players and their departure means the government loses more and more revenue each time tax has been increased. So, is
it not correct that the reverse is more correct? Increasing taxes increases the harm referred to by Stephen Mayne. I used to play the pokies, but with the tax increases I have not played for some years because of declining wins (or increasing losses). Ian Bassett, Frankston South
New wave I have seen a item on TV about a man in Tailem Bend, South Australia, who is getting people to wave and smile at everyone and to try and get people to do the same to 10 people a day so that eventually it will spread right across Australia.

Twenty years of service and style for Jaleigh Blinds JALEIGH Blinds has certainly withstood the test of time with the family owned business celebrating 20 years this month. “At Jaleigh Blinds and Curtains, our philosophy is to offer expertise and friendly advice to help our customers make confident, informed decisions,” said husband and wife owners, David and Annette Farren. “We do not believe in hard sell but rather let our service, quality products and low prices speak for themselves.” Initially run from home by the husband and wife team, the company now also provides employment for 20 local people. “By manufacturing most styles of blinds in our Carrum Downs factory, we eliminate the middle man and pass the savings on to our customers. Our locally made range is comple-

mented by the latest styles sourced from selected suppliers, all experts in their field,” said David and Annette. “Many of our customers come to us through recommendation and we also supply to a large number of local builders, developers, health facilities and schools on a regular basis.” The business’ knowledge of the industry started at the coalface with David doing installations for other businesses. “Then we started to sell blinds, which Annette went out measuring and quoting while I did the installations,” said David, who recalls that, at the same time, he was also setting up and running a workroom for another blind company. “We then started to manufacture blinds from our shed at home and, as the business grew, we opened a shop
and workroom at 50 Hartnett Drive, Seaford. Since then we have opened a standalone workroom and another shop in Pakenham. We have gone from just the two of us to having 25 employees across the business. We stated just selling the current trends in blinds and then added soft furnishings as we felt there was a demand for the complete package.” Meanwhile the manufacturing side of the business started with just vertical blinds, followed by roller binds as they started to become more popular. Timber blinds and roman blinds followed while the retailer also sourced other products from specialists within the industry. “We sell all internal window coverings from roller binds to venetians, romans and shutters, through to curtains, pelmets, swags and tails
and nyth9ing in between. Our core range includes roller blinds, verticals, roman blinds and panel glides, manufactured in our factory. We also manufacture pvc venetians and curtain tracks in house and have added Visionshade blinds to our range. We have expanded our range of exterior awnings, including motorisation. Plantations shutters remain a favorite especially for front facing windows,” said David and Annette. Jaleigh Blinds cater for anything from budget to higher end, whether it is basic roller blinds or the most luxurious soft furnishings. “Our typical customer is a private home owner, either in the process of building or renovating. They might be looking to fit out an entire house or just some rooms, depending on their project. We also have a large clientele
who own rental properties or holiday homes and require cost effective solutions to covering their windows,” said David and Annette. “We pride ourselves on our staff’s product knowledge, but saying that, we are not afraid to ask our specialist suppliers for assistance when required.” Going forward, business growth will be based on more of the same approach as the last 20 years says David and Annette. “Keeping up with the latest trends, using the newest technology and ensuring all staff are well trained and give exceptional customer service,” they said. “We have used the motto ‘Quality and Service at the right price’ since we first stated the business and continue to uphold that motto.”
Anti-pokies campaign gains support
Police patrol Pursuit gets airborne A CAR on the run from police ran up a power pole support cable and became suspended in mid-air with its wheels spinning, 12.40am, Sunday 2 July. Sergeant Phillip Hulley, of Frankston police, said Somerville Highway Patrol police spotted the car with home-made number plates driving along Turner Rd, Langwarrin, and turning into Cranbourne Rd. He said they activated their lights and siren but the car accelerated and was last seen driving into Long St. Continuing their patrol, the patrol crew again spotted the car, this time near the corner of Turner Rd and Beech St, and gave chase. In the chase, the car is alleged to have mounted a gutter and run up a power pole guide wire where it remained – with all four wheels spinning helplessly – in mid-air. Police smashed the driver’s side window and sprayed the male driver and his female passenger with OC foam. He crawled over his passenger and bolted and is still at large. Police found cash and drugs in the car which was later seized. The man, 32, who has been identified, is expected to be charged on summons with numerous drug and driving offences. The passenger was released after being given medical care.
Running out of time A WOULD-BE thief wrestled with a staff member and a manager inside a pawn shop in central Frankston last week. Frankston police said the thief asked for a closer look at a $10,000 Rolex watch inside a display cabinet at the Cash Centre, Frankston, 4.10pm, Monday 3 July. The man allegedly attempted to steal the watch by shoving the shop assistant out of the way and running out of the Nepean Highway store. In what was described a “violent struggle”, the as-
sistant, with help from the manager, wrestled with the man and recovered the watch. The assistant received an injury to his left eye. Senior Constable Natalie Crosbie, of Frankston police, said a Frankston man, 27, and known to police was expected to be charged over the incident.
Packed in like sardines A TEENAGER’S “midnight munchies craving” caused the loss of her car for a month. Somerville Highway Patrol police randomly pulled over a Ford Territory on Pindara Blvd, Langwarrin, 12.45am, Thursday. They were gobsmacked to find 11 teens piled into the five-seater for a late night fast food run. Five were packed into the boot area and four were
squeezed into the backseat. The only two wearing seatbelts were the driver and his front seat passenger. The 18-year-old driver, of St Kilda, is expected to be charged on summons with not displaying Pplates, breach of driving conditions having more than one passenger, overloaded vehicle, and nine counts of failing to wear seatbelts.
Door kicked in THREE men kicked in the door of a Pindara Blvd, Langwarrin, house while searching for a man who they thought lived there, 2.40pm, Thursday 29 July. The men had earlier knocked on the door and asked another resident if the man was home. The resident denied any knowledge of the man and fled the house when they arrived the second time in a stolen Jeep.
Continued from Page 1 Mr Mayne acknowledged “it is a bit of a step up” for councils to financially back the campaign although Knox had also recently joined Kingston in putting money into combating problem gambling. The former City of Melbourne councillor and founder of the Crikey online news site said the Alliance for Gambling Reform offers help to council partners opposing planning applications for venues to install more pokies machines. He said Whittlesea Council, for example, are currently opposing such an application at the Victorian Civil and Administrative Tribunal (VCAT) and “we’re in there too” helping council officers work on the details of opposing more pokies in the municipality. Frankston Council rejected an application for ten more gaming machines at the Langwarrin Hotel last year but the VCGLR and VCAT subsequently overruled council and allowed the extra pokies to be installed. The application by the hotel attracted nationwide media coverage, after first being reported in The Times, since an upgrade to a children’s playground at the Langwarrin Hotel was controversially deemed “a social benefit” to be taken into consideration when approving more pokies machines at the venue. The Alliance for Gambling Reform has written to all state MPs to urge politicians to stop pokies “ripping off people in the community”.

OUR feet and legs are vital for mobility and balance and are the basis of most of our daily activities, so its no wonder most people suffer foot, knee or leg pain at some point in their lives. But what can you do about it? We asked the experts at Foot & Leg Pain Clinics to shed some light on common foot and leg concerns: The most common concerns include: knee pain, injuries and arthritis; heel, shin and forefoot pain; ankle and achilles concerns. Many conditions are misdiagnosed and incorrectly treated, so its important to find an experienced musculoskeletal or sports podiatrist to assist. Bad foot posture can continually pull your body out of alignment, which can contribute to postural aches / pains and undue stress on joints and tissues. Early symptoms for diabetes, arthritis, nerve and circulatory problems often show themselves initially in the feet. Traditional treatments such as cortisone, anti-inflammatory medications and joint arthroscopies are now outdated for conditions such as foot and leg pain and arthritis, and have been found to delay healing and cause further tissue damage in many cases. We now have effective, natural medical alternatives and treatments for such conditions. Regenerative therapies such as Prolotherapy and PRP (platelet rich plasma) are helping many to
heal injuries and assist degeneration. Foot and leg problems left untreated usually get worse, however most foot & leg concerns can be addressed relatively easily and effectively with appropriate treatment. “By combining the latest regenerative therapies with a sound knowledge of musculoskeletal medicine, biomechanics, and load management strategies to assist stresses through joints and tissues, we can aid or eradicate pain, increase mobility, repair injury and regenerate tissues to assist arthritic concerns – naturally,” say the experts at Foot & Leg Pain Clinics. If you need assistance with foot or leg pain, Foot & Leg Pain Clinics have convenient clinic locations across Victoria including Mt Eliza, Rosebud and Moorabbin.

Declare what you share this tax time THE ATO is reminding people involved in the sharing economy to make sure they meet all their obligations this tax time. Assistant Commissioner Graham Whyte said the ATO was concerned those earning money from the sharing economy may not realise they have to declare these amounts on their tax return. “The sharing economy has changed the way we do a lot of things, but it hasn’t changed the ATO’s definition of income,” said Mr Whyte. “In the sharing economy, buyers and sellers are connected through a facilitator who usually operates an app or website. “If you earn money from doing odd jobs or providing a service like task sharing, transporting passengers through things like ride-sourcing, or renting out a room or house, you need to declare it because it counts as assessable income. If you are running a business through the sharing economy you also need to declare this income.
“It’s a bit different if the goods you provide or the activity you complete through a sharing economy website or platform is done as a hobby or recreational activity. The amount you are paid may not be assessable income. You can check the ATO website for information on how to work this out.” Mr Whyte said ATO technology was keeping up with the sharing economy, and it would know if you had left out a significant amount of income. “Every year we obtain over 600 million pieces of data from a range of third party sources, including information about income from banks. “The data enables us to put together a picture of what a person’s assessable income should be. If something doesn’t look quite right, it will send up a red flag and we’ll investigate further. So it is better to make sure you get it right the first time. “Your obligations are pretty simple if you earn a fee from task sharing for odd jobs or provid-
ing a service, and it counts as assessable income – you just need to include the income in your individual tax return. “On the other hand, any money earned through accommodation sharing, in other words, where you rent out all or part of your house or a car space, should be included in your individual tax return as rental income. “It is important to remember you are entitled to the same deductions as other rental property owners. However, when working out your deductions, you need to take into account what portion of the house is rented out and for how much of the year.” Mr Whyte said that most people involved in the sharing economy will be entitled to claim deductions if they are declaring income, not just those sharing their accommodation. “The key to knowing what you can claim as a deduction is keeping good records of all income and expenses incurred while providing a service.”

100 YEARS AGO THIS WEEK...
Councillor Plowman announces his resignation Compiled by Cameron McCullough OWING to his professional duties necessitating his constant absence from the district, especially on the dates of meetings of the Shire Council; Councillor Plowman has definitely announced his intention to resign his seat on the North Riding which he has filled with satisfaction to the ratepayers and credit to himself for a long period. His loss will be greatly felt, for although he has had leave of absence for some time, he has been anything but inactive in other directions in looking after the affairs of the whole shire at the Metropolitan end and many other directions a fact which is very little known, and it is hoped that when his duties are relieved or modified he may at some future time offer his services to the ratepayers. As advertised elsewhere, Mr W. P. Mason announces that he will contest the seat rendered vacant by Councillor Plowman’s retirement. Mr Mason’s long association with the district together with his many preambulations over its highways, combined with his accredited business abilities should qualify him as a worthy successor. As Councillor Oates’ term expires by effluxion of time in August next there will be two seats to fill at the next election, but so far there is no mention of any one opposing him. *** MR S S. Gault will hold his fortnightly sale at Somerville, on Thursday, July 19th. *** PRIZES are offered for the best dressed, best sustained character, and
most original costume, at the Plain and Fancy dress ball on July 25th. *** A CHEQUE for £20 was received by the “Wattle” Club on Monday last, from Mr and Mrs A. H. Sargood, to be used for carrying on the work of entertaining soldiers. *** MRS Haymansen and Mr Ryan are presenting prizes for the euchre tournament, to be held next Thursday evening. Leading scores for the continuous euchre, will also be made known. *** AT a meeting of the Somerville Presbyterian Ladies Guild held on Saturday July 7th Mrs Chas. Grant was elected President. Mrs Grant is an energetic worker and with the support of the members, the Guild should greatly benefit. Mrs Grant is well up in her work being President of the Fruitgrowers Ladies’ Guild and was for 12 months President of the Somerville Red Cross Society. We wish her every success. *** Echoes from the Front. WHERE ARE THE BOYS WE KNOW? The following letter has been received form Pte W. G Connal, dated 29/4/17: I am writing one letter to all at home to give you my version of the torpedoing of the “Ballarat”. I will not give you what I have heard but my own experiences up to leaving here. I was below writing home when I saw men coming hurriedly down the
stairs and thought there was something wrong, those coming down said nothing for a few seconds, when one said, “there is a torpedo coming” and the following moments were dumbfoundering, waiting for her to hit, when she did it was like a dull thud, in fact we did not know whether we were hit or our own gun being fired. I picked up my letter and made for the stairs, which it was impossible to get up on account of men coming down, so you can imagine by that, that they took things pretty easily. By the time I got to the top most men were on their stations, which had been previously alloted to different parties. I was on the raft. There was no credit to be given to the submarine on her achievement as the ship could only do 10 knots per hour and on seeing the torpedo coming the old skipper maneuvered the ship round to such an extent that she was hit only on the starboard propeller which was lost and left a hole in its place through which the water flowed and along the shaft tunnel. Within a very short time the men in the engine room were in water almost to their waists. Eight volunteers were asked for to go down the stoke hole. There was a rush for the job but before they got there the water had reached the stoke hole, so they were not required. When I reached the foredeck, the ship had sunk a lot by the stern. Some of our boats were lowered and had put off but as the ship seemed to be stationary, they were recalled. Before half an hour after the hit, smoke was seen on the horizon in different directions, also a seaplane which looked
fine. As I told you before when writing that I camped on deck always and had my kit with me so I was more lucky than others. The destroyer that was with us knew nothing until we were hit. When they started flying round my word they do shift. The sub showed up where our boats were but the destroyer could not get a shot on account of the danger our own men ran, however we have since heard that the submarine was sunk at 10.30pm by a destroyer aided by a Seaplane the same night. If that is true and I have reason to believe it is, the German victory was very small. When they found the ship was in a sinking condition, the boats were all put off again and the destroyer came alongside and took about 750 men on board. I threw my kit on to her, but it burst through coming in contact with a mine sweeper which was on the stern. I never got on myself, but a trawler was alongside afterwards. There were only 83 of our unit left on board, I amongst them. We were put on the trawler then transferred to life boats, then again the destroyer. When we made straight to Devenport. The destroyers go through the water about 80 knots an hour. It was 2.50p.m. on Anzac day when we were hit and about 4 p.m we were all off and arrived in Devenport about 10pm. We were put up at the Naval Barracks then, but will not mention what I saw or heard. You at home have no idea what our Navy is. Civilians or soldiers are not allowed in the barracks so you can understand
why I will not detail anything that is inside. Be satisfied and thankful to know that we were treated with the utmost consideration and kindness by all concerned. We stayed all night in the barracks and in the morning tested the Devonshire cider which is not too bad. All the lads who took to it went as red as lobsters. We left the barracks for Keyham station at about 4 p.m. Thursday and entrained for our destination which is here. I was never one to write much about scenery, but the trip through Devenshire is most beautiful. All hills and green fields which are separated by turf fences, with hedges on top. Plenty of rabbits and partridges browsing about. We arrived at Borden about 2.30 a.m. on Friday. There is no town much, but plenty of soldiers. We are about 40 miles from London, have to pay our own fares, no leave at all except our embarkation leave which is four days but I heard we are to get survivors leave on account of losing our ship. We were almost lucky enough to dodge the torpedo, but more lucky in getting our S.O.S. out as soon after the wireless system broke down, but was fixed later. The shock astern unseated our gun and before the boat went down it fell overboard. So you see we would have been unable to defend ourselves against the submarine only for the destroyer. *** From the pages of the Mornington Standard, 14 July 1917

THE MEANING OF EXISTENCE... AND OTHER SHORT STORIES
Oh Inverted World! By Stuart McCullough I COULD feel it coming. Just the way the manager led me towards my room suggested something out of the ordinary was about to occur. The gravel belched beneath my shoes as I strode across the concourse. Normally, the manager hands you the key and leaves you to your own devices. Not here, though. Instead, the manager was leading me right to the door. I began to wonder whether he might offer to carry me over the threshold. As we neared, he pointed to a metal number affixed to the door. To me it looked a lot like the number ‘six’. How wrong I was. He was pointing. ‘You’re in room number nine,’ he said, with a straight face. Before I could beg to differ, he launched into an explanation. ‘The painter put the number on upside down.’ Even the most cursory of glances told me it had been some considerable time since a painter had been anywhere near it. Meaning that the motel manager had made a conscious decision to leave things as they were and explain to anyone unfortunate enough to be assigned room six / nine the whole tragic story. Glancing down the row of motel rooms, I could see how this could be confusing. Room number six was followed by room number seven which, in turn, was followed by room number eight. So far, so normal. However, after room number eight came another room ‘six’, swiftly followed by room ten. This, I thought to myself, is how anarchy begins. Meanwhile, the manager was
Frankston Times 10 July 2017
explaining, at length, how hard it is to get good help in this crazy mixed up world. Although why someone other than the painter couldn’t get a screwdriver and turn the offending digit up the right way was never made clear. I nodded as he spoke, as though the painter really ought to suffer some kind of corporal punishment for so grave a numeric sin. Secretly, though,
I thought it was the inevitable result of someone being asked to stray beyond the boundaries of their position description. Then again, maybe darker forces were at work. That rather than mere incompetence, this was some kind of revenge. That is, the painter was not so much distracted as disgruntled and could think of no other way by which to show his frustration than by deliberately inverting one
of the room numbers. If so, it would elevate an error to an act of evil genius. Clearly, I was being asked to take careful note of which room was mine, lest I should try and gain entry to the other room also marked as room six. There are few things quite so alarming as the sound of someone trying to open your motel door. As a precaution, I reached into my travel bag and pulled out the can of spray paint I always carry with me in case of an emergency, and put a large red ‘x’ on door. ‘There,’ I said. ‘That should help avoid any confusion’. I could tell by the look on the manager’s face that he was surprised. Gaining entry was only the first of several surprises. The surfaces looked as though they’d been covered with decorative contact sometime in the eighties. Which, incidentally, was probably when the painter last visited. My suspicions were only further confirmed as I edged towards the entertainment system. There, just below the television, was an oldschool ghetto blaster, complete with tape deck. Instantly, I felt foolish for not bringing my cassette collection and contemplated making the five hundred kilometre round-trip just so could finally play some of my best mix tapes. Not only had I neglected to bring my cassettes with me, I’d left the other members of my hip-hop posse at home. When I thought about all the times I’d taken the trouble to throw the other members of my B-Boy crew into the boot when I was heading off somewhere only to end up not needing
them, I felt remarkably foolish. But what were the chances that I should find myself in possession of a perfectly good ghetto blaster and no one with whom I could bust a few moves? Granted, I’d also left behind the big sheet of cardboard we routinely use to avoid carpet burn when performing backspins, but I’m certain I could have improvised. All night I waited for someone to knock on the door, demanding entry to room number six. For hours, I practiced explaining that, no, this was not room number six but room number nine and that the painter had stuffed up everything before doing a runner, never to be heard from again. Had I brought some blank C-90 cassettes, I could have recorded this message rather than rehearse it, saving me valuable minutes in the event that someone attempted to break in to what they wrongly believed was their room. Only as the sun came up, did I feel as though the danger had passed. Tired and cranky, I packed up my things and got ready to hit the road. As I always do, I checked every inch of the room to ensure that I’d left nothing behind. Having put my bags in the boot of the car, I wandered over to return my key. As I checked out, I asked, ‘So, when is the painter coming back?’ The manager blinked, looked at me as if I’d just told him that a zombie had just crawled into my room through the mini-bar and said, ‘I’m the painter.’ And that, I thought, explained everything. firstname.lastname@example.org

Redlegs fail under pressure PENINSULA LEAGUE
By Toe Punt MT Eliza cannot win the 2017 premiership. To achieve the ultimate in 2017 in MPNFL Peninsula Division, a team must be able to beat Frankston YCW – that’s something Mt Eliza can’t do. Not this season anyway. On Saturday, Mt Eliza had its best chance ever of beating the Stonecats despite missing Dave Barton, Jimmy Freeman, Matt Lillie, Brodie Shaw, Robbie Turnball and Sam Gill. Frankston YCW had 15 of its best players out of the team due to either representative football, VFL or injury. Just some of the names missing included Scott McLeod, Kyle Hutchison, Matt LaFontaine, Anthony Barry, Anthony Bruhn, Ben Buckley, Jack Masurek, Paul Minchington, Michael Debenham, Luke Paynter and Danny Hughes. The Stonecats were ripe for the picking and the Redlegs couldn’t get the job done. Justin Van Unen booted six goals in the opening half for Mt Eliza and looked unstoppable, however, when YCW tightened the defensive pressure up through the midfield and ‘JV’ was forced to go one on one with BJ Credlin in the air, the Redlegs lost all avenue to goal. Byron Barrie, Christian Ongarello, Credlin and best afield Kevin Lylak owned the game in the second half. Mt Eliza just does not have a Plan B if Van Unen doesn’t kick goals. There’s no one else who looks likely to kick one. The Redlegs booted just 1.2 in the second half, all of that coming in the final quarter. In the ruck, Ash Eames and Macklin Raine beat Grant Goodall. Goodall won the tap-outs but not many were to advantage and he had little impact

around the ground. For YCW, there’s so much to like about their program. Even with three debutants in the team and another half a dozen who have played less than a dozen senior games, they looked right at home playing the brand and structures that coach Wayne Capp is looking for.
It was a wonderful performance from the Stonecats in the 8.11 (59) to 7.5 (47) victory. Pines may be without key forward Aaron Edwards for the remainder of the season after he suffered what appeared to be a serious knee injury in his team’s 13.15 (93) to 5.6 (36) victory against Langwarrin.
Edwards left the field in the opening quarter after young Langwarrin defender Nick Tuddenham ran across his knee in a bid to prevent him from taking a mark. Edwards was seeing the North Melbourne FC doctor on Sunday to get a full understanding of the injury. Coach Pat Swayne said best case
scenario was that the injury was a medial ligament, which would put him out for between four to six weeks. It was a scrappy affair at Lloyd Park, which had zero atmosphere. Langwarrin started the game with two extra defenders and had defensive forwards (taggers) on Luke Potts and Nick Boswell across half back. Clearly Langwarrin just wanted to minimise the damage. It’s a poor ploy by the Kangas coaching team. I wonder how forwards Kieran Albanese and Gerard Brown feel about the tactic, given they hardly see the footy. The Kangas are a young team who should be encouraged to go out and play the game. Kicking five goals each week is boring dwindling crowds and disenchanting the playing group. Dale Tedge booted five goals for the Pythons after being shifted when Edwards left the field. Edithvale-Aspendale are still in the finals hunt after dishing out a convincing five goal win against Bonbeach, 12.11 (83) to 7.7 (49). The Eagles were three goals up at quarter time and never looked back with Mick Meehan booting four goals and Brendan Neville and Chris Wylie dominating. Chelsea caused the upset of the round, beating Seaford by five points, 14.12 (96) to 14.7 (91). Matt Ponton booted six goals and Dave Willett four for the Gulls while Todd Gardiner dominated. Brad Doyle and Tommy Shaw were the best of the Tigers, who have been ordinary in the past month. In the final game, Mornington belted Karingal by 80 points 21.14 (140) to 9.6 (60). The news is worse for the Bulls also with legend player Luke Van Raay doing an ACL last week after 292 games.
Final five is set in Nepean League NEPEAN LEAGUE By Toe Punt THE final five is set in MPNFL Nepean Division, six rounds before the end of the final home and away game. Dromana won its sixth game on the trot on Saturday and in doing so, went two games clear of both Red Hill (sixth) and Somerville (seventh). Given the Eagles and the Hillmen have tougher runs home, it appears now that the Tigers are in the perfect position to grab a spot in the finals. Furthermore, the Tigers are now just a game and percentage off second place and should be now aiming for a great outcome from the season. The form of the Tigers is a credit to coach Ricki Johnston and his support team. After the first five weeks, the Tigers had won just one game (against Tyabb) and were on the end of a couple of hidings. Seven games later and they have not dropped one since. Ethan Johnstone was superb again on Saturday with six goals while Jay Hutchison and a returning Sam Fowler booted four in the 23.10 (148) to 10.16 (76) win. Paul Ransom and Jordan Alves were

the best of the Yabbies. Red Hill booted the first goal of the last quarter against Frankston Bombers on Saturday to give themselves every chance of winning and keeping their season alive. Thirty minutes later and the Bombers had kicked the last six goals of the game to win comfortably 17.11 (113) to 10.8 (68). Sam Fox put on a clinic in the final term and finished with four goals while coach Beau Muston also finished with four majors. Matty Hyden found himself forward for the Hillmen and kicked four while Ben Hughes was good with three also. It has been a season of disappointment for the Hillmen, who recruited well in the off season but will fail to make finals. Hastings bounced back from a horror defeat last week, belting Rye 23.12 (150) to 9.10 (64). Dale Alanis kicked six and Shaun Foster four for the winners while Brendan Dunne led from the front. It was a tough day for the Demons with Harry Witty and Adam Kirkwood among their best. Rosebud put an end to Somerville’s season also, belting the home team by
more than 13 goals. Celebrating its 125th year, the Somerville crowd was eager for a repeat performance of last week when it came from behind to beat Frankston. However, the loaded Buds, who had Keegan Downie back with three goals, spoilt the party. Jai Nanscawen was back from Stingrays too and booted six goals for the Buds while twin brother Reid also played, along with Campbell Hustwaite. Bryce Kellerman was the best of the Eagles in the 8.6 (54) to 20.15 (135) loss. In the battle of the Panthers, Devon Meadows smashed Pearcedale to the tune of almost 100 points. Allan Murray booted seven goals and Kyle Beveridge dominated with three goals in the 22.15 (147) to 7.12 (54) thumping. Harry Prior was Pearcedale’s best with two goals. In the final game, Sorrento belted Crib Point by more than 20 goals, 26.20 (176) to 5.13 (43). Leigh Poholke booted seven majors and Nick Corp and James Hallahan four each for the Sharks while Shayne Ainsworth was solid for the Pies.

Kilner to quit Baxter, Skye still in the hunt SOCCER
By Craig MacKenzie ROY Kilner will step down as head coach of State 4 South promotion candidate Baxter at season’s end and has a succession plan in place. Kilner made the decision to call it a day some weeks back and wants current first team keeper Francis Beck to become the club’s new player-coach. Kilner has told the first team squad of his intentions and Beck has been given more responsibility in overseeing training sessions. While Beck is yet to fully commit to the succession plan there’s also the matter of whether or not his candidature will be approved by the committee that leads the club into the 2018 season. “I don’t think there will be an issue with the committee because Francis has been there for a long time and he’s a club favourite,” said Kilner, whose sons Liam and Owen are senior team mainstays. When the final whistle blows in Baxter’s last league game of 2017 Kilner will have been in charge for three full seasons. “I’ve got no idea how Gus Macleod (Langwarrin coach) can last 19 or 20 seasons. He needs psychological help,” said Kilner with a laugh. “Coaching takes so much out of you – your family time, your work time – because once you put your hand up for a job like that you do so heart and soul. “You put everything into training sessions and talking to the boys before the match then you’re watching the game and you’re kicking every ball, heading every ball – it’s absolutely exhausting.” Kilner is 52 and came to Australia when he was 26 having played with Peebles Rovers and Tweeddale Rovers in his native Scotland as a right-sided midfielder. “One of my biggest regrets was not concentrating more on my football as a player because my sights were set on coming to Australia and that’s why I encourage my boys so much and hope they keep playing for as long as they can.” The chances of Baxter saying goodbye to Kilner on a winning note weren’t helped in their last match, a 3-1 home loss against promotion rival Bayside Argonauts and this Saturday they travel to Fotheringham Reserve to take on another promotion aspirant in Dandenong South. It’s a daunting task but one that Kilner is relishing. “We’re definitely still targeting promotion and we’ll turn things right around against Dandy South on Saturday,” said Kilner.
Baxter boss: Roy Kilner in action on match day. Picture: John Punshon “To me they are the strongest team in the league but I’m delighted to be playing them and I can guarantee that the boys will be up for this one.” Kilner’s confidence is in part due to the availability of new signing Grady Vickers, a young striker from Casey Comets. “Don’t be surprised to see him playing from the start. “We need the three points and while a draw keeps us in it by jings a win there would really be something and I think we can do it. “You won’t see the lacklustre performance that you saw against Bayside Argonauts.” Kilner is one of the more colourful characters in the local game and is never short of a word but he was initially reluctant to comment when questioned about his legacy at Baxter Park. “That’s really not for me to say but for others to judge. “What I am chuffed about though is that we’ve still got the nucleus of the players we had three years ago and they have got themselves into a position where they believe they can win games and go from strength to strength. “When I arrived the players weren’t that interested and didn’t care much win, lose or draw so to see them winning games now and wanting to achieve success is very satisfying.” Although Baxter is currently in fifth spot in the league it is just three points behind the top two sides so Kilner is

still a chance to say goodbye waving to the masses from the open-top bus he often has joked about hiring should his side win the championship. Meanwhile State 3 South-East promotion candidate Skye United kept the pressure on second-placed Brandon Park with a 2-1 home win in its catch-up fixture against Brighton last Wednesday night. The result leaves Skye two points behind Brandon Park with a superior goal difference. Skye led 1-0 at half-time thanks to a Marcus Collier header at the back post following Jacob Scotte-Hatherly’s 32nd minute corner. Brighton hit back a few minutes into the second half when Alex Greatorex was at the far post to head in from close range. The winner came from substitute Lawrence Komba who miraculously fashioned a finish from a near impossible angle on the right of the area 10 minutes from time after beating Brighton keeper Adrian Drury in a race to the ball. Striker Nick Theodore has quit Skye citing lack of game time and is considering joining Bayside Argonauts while midfielder Tom Natoli has rejoined Brighton after a short stint at Seaford United. The word from Lawton Park is that veteran striker Caleb Nicholes could retire at the end of the season. Nicholes turns 35 in November and is in his third stint with Langy. He joined Langwarrin reserves in
1999 under coach Terry Kirkham and the following year first team supremo Gus Macleod gave the then teenager his chance of senior football. Nicholes scored his first senior goal for Langwarrin on Saturday 15 July 2000 at Lawton Park in a 6-0 win over Nunawading City in a State 3 SouthEast clash. Nicholes took a year out of the game in 2001 then joined Fitzroy City in the Premier League in 2002. However, halfway through that season he switched to Frankston Pines and his five goals in 10 games played a part in Pines’ successful push to gain promotion to Premier League. In 2003 he played with East Richmond in State 3 South-East but returned to Pines the following season and started in 16 games and scored six goals but when the chance arose at the end of the season to rejoin Langwarrin he jumped at it. In the first half of the 2007 season he played with Springvale White Eagles in the Victorian Premier League but rejoined Langy halfway through the season. During his time at Langwarrin he has been a regular club and league leading goalscorer and has played 244 league games and scored 190 league goals. He has captained Langwarrin and has won numerous club and league awards. Nicholes and wife Zoe are senior ministers at Southern Lights church in Skye and have two daughters, Aurora
and Eva. His late grandfather Stan Nicholes was inducted into Sport Australia’s Hall of Fame in 1998. The former weightlifter was a sports science pioneer who was internationally acclaimed for his work with some of the most iconic figures in Australian sport including Olympic gold medallists Herb Elliott and Peter Antonie, grand slam tennis champions Margaret Court and Frank Sedgman and a host of AFL luminaries including Tony Lockett, Ron Barassi, Tom Hafey and Kevin Sheedy. Stan Nicholes was also involved in two Richmond premierships and was awarded the Medal of the Order of Australia (OAM) in 1986 for his service to sport as a fitness consultant. In other news local women’s NPL outfit Southern United had victory in its grasp but had to settle for a 1-1 draw with Alamein at Comets Stadium on Saturday. Southern took the lead through Candela Ferreyra Bas in the 75th minute but Alamein’s second-half substitute Lucy Richards snatched a last-gasp equaliser. It’s been a breakout season for Southern’s senior team which finished last in its inaugural season in 2016 but is currently in fifth spot seven points behind Alamein. The club fields seniors, under-18s, under-15s and under-13s in the elite competition and tasted success last year when its under-15s won the grand final. This season Southern’s under-13s led by head coach Debbie Nicholls and assistant Emma Bracken are on top of the table and consolidated their position with a 2-0 win over Alamein on Saturday. Southern’s goals came from Candice Kilderry and Rhys McKenna and diminutive midfield dynamo Alessandra Davis impressed with her range of passing and vision. The under 15s match ended 0-0 and Alamein won the under-18s clash 4-1 with Zoe Cooper scoring for Southern. This weekend’s games: FRIDAY, 8.30pm: Casey Comets v Langwarrin (Comets Stadium), Doncaster Rovers v Frankston Pines (Anderson Park). SATURDAY 3pm: Clifton Hill v Mornington (Quarries Park), Doveton v Peninsula Strikers (Waratah Reserve), Middle Park v Skye Utd (Albert Park Field 16), Dandenong South v Baxter (Fotheringham Reserve), Bayside Argonauts v Rosebud Heart (Shipston Reserve), Somerville Eagles v Chelsea (Barber Reserve).

League chief dodges questions on local footy’s future By Toe Punt AFL SE Regional General Manager John Anderson believes that one of the two options presented in the senior football competition review will provide a “very strong premier competition”. Anderson, who spoke in two separate videos last Wednesday, said he “believed a region of our size and stature ought to have a strong premier competition. He went on to say that “this is a view shared by many clubs”. Mr Anderson is consistent with this push despite 20 of the 22 MPNFL clubs responding to the recommendations last week, opposing the recommendations in the review.
All clubswere given the opportunity to put questions to Mr Anderson in an email early last week. Yours truly was also invited to provide questions. Despite more than 20 questions being asked, Mr Anderson chose to answer only those he wanted to, before signing-off on the finished product before it was released last Friday. Questions Mr Anderson failed to answer included:- The clubs have expressed interest in meeting with AFL SE collectively. Why has there been a reluctance to speak to the clubs collectively? - Given AFL SE proposed the recommendations in the document, which have been opposed, is it not up to the administration to present
additional alternatives for clubs to consider? - If a resolution can’t be found between AFL SE and the MPNFL Clubs, where will that leave the AFL SE Region. Can AFL SE continue to be viable without the support of the MPNFL Clubs? Another question that was asked was the impact of juniors and netball in AFL South East’s decision. Mr Anderson chose to ignore the junior aspect of the question. In answering about netball, Mr Anderson had this to say: “We acknowledge there’s difficulties – we’re asking for solutions – if a certain structure was in place, how would netball look?”
Isn’t that what AFL South East should be providing clubs – solutions? Despite extending the deadline by a week, Mr Anderson said in the interview that “we understand change is difficult.” What change is Mr Anderson referring to? Has a decision been made? My understanding was that AFL South East was still seeking feedback. Mr Anderson said there was an ability for the public to provide feedback. “For interested people in the league we manage we encourage their feedback – the more of that we get the better. Our understanding is that there are people within clubs who don’t see eye to eye on the stance taken by the club,” Mr Anderson said.
Again, what has this got to do with the general public? Feedback should only come from member clubs. Club executives have been voted by their members to represent the best interests of their club. The public’s opinion should have no bearing on AFL South East’s recommendation. Finally, Mr Anderson said “what is in the best interests of football in this region, in the end, is what this is all about.” Once again, MPNFL Clubs are all in agreeance that the two recommendations presented in the review are not in the best interests of their region, which includes juniors and netball.
Frankston Gift ready to be run in 2018 By Ben Triandafillou IT has been six years since the running of the ‘Gift’ on the peninsula but the Frankston Athletics Club has announced that they will reignite the event and host the 2018 Frankston Gift on Sunday 14 January. Next year’s Frankston Gift will be run at the Frankston Football Oval with $1500 available in the prize pool for each of the women’s and men’s gifts. Ready to run: Frankston Athletic Club athlete Ebony Lane sprints to the line at the 2017 Stawell Gift. Photo: supplied
The Frankston Gift will be run on the same weekend as the 2018 Rye Gift which the Frankston Athletics Club believes will only have a positive effect on the event. “We are hoping people from the Rye Gift will stay down on the peninsula and come and compete the following day in Frankston,” Frankston Athletics Club treasurer Craig McConchie said. “We have deliberately chosen to run our events over different distances to the Rye Gift so that the runners aren’t repeating what they had run the previous day.” As the races are “professional” races, prize money is offered for all events, which is generally paid to
everyone who makes a final. Each athlete is given a mark or handicap based on their ability allowing all competitors to have an equal opportunity to win their chosen event. There are 15 proposed events on the program, including a football/ netball club relay and an emergency services relay. The Frankston Athletics Club is now looking for sponsors for the Frankston Gift to help raise the prizemoney that will be on offer. If you have any queries about the event itself or sponsorship opportunities, contact the club at frankstongift@ hotmail.com.
Mornington scores wheelchair basketball clinic By Ben Triandafillou WHEELCHAIR Basketball will make its way to the Mornington Peninsula with a weekly clinic starting Sunday 23 July. Mornington District Basketball Association (MDBA) will host the weekly clinics at the Mornington Secondary College basketball stadium. It hopes to eventually lead on to a wheelchair basketball league. The MDBA has been taking registrations-of-interest from wheelchair basketballers since early-April after being contacted by a young local boy. Ella Linton-Smith, a representative of the association, says it had been looking at building a wheelchair basketball league for some time and was inspired to take action from an 11-year-old boy named Riley from the Mornington Peninsula. “We were contacted by Disability Sport and Recreation Victoria and they told us about an 11-year-old boy in our area who was keen to play wheelchair basketball,” Linton-Smith said. “The closest place for people on the peninsula to play wheelchair basketball is Kilsyth, so, obviously, it makes sense for us to establish a program here and make the game more accessible to everybody. “We have had a lot of support from Basketball Victoria helping us to source sports chairs and our local Bunnings have also kindly offered to donate a shed for storage.

Sad loss: Roger Booth died due to a suspected heart attack. Photo: supplied Eager to start: Eleven-year-old boy Riley can’t wait for Wheelchair Basketball to make its way to the peninsula. Photo: supplied
“We’re thrilled to be able to set something like this up and we look forward to seeing the program grow over time.” Within two weeks of seeking expressions-of-interest the MDBA had approaches from nine players aged 1018 – a figure which continues to grow. The clinics will run for an hour on Sunday afternoons, kicking off with a free come-and-try session 1pm, 23 July. They are open to anyone interested with no restrictions on who can join.

Mornington loses hardworking veteran jockey By Ben Triandafillou MORNINGTON Racecourse held a funeral on Monday to remember veteran jockey, Roger Booth, who had become a familiar face at the Mornington racetrack and on the Victorian country racing circuit. Booty, as known by many in the racing industry, was a genuine hardworking jockey who’d get up before the crack of dawn to ride trackwork for a variety of trainers. “He was always the first at the track and the last to leave,” retired Mornington horse trainer Barry Howe said following the death of Roger Booth, aged 55.
After the second race at Darwin on Saturday 1 July Roger Booth suffered a suspected heart attack. Booth guided the Neil Dyer-trained Senor Juez into sixth position and returned to the mounting yard before collapsing shortly after dismounting. He was reportedly conscious after being revived by ambulance staff at the track but suffered a heart attack when being transferred to the Darwin hospital and died. Booth came across from New Zealand a couple of decades ago and tried his luck as a flat and jumps jockey. He spent most of his career in Mornington riding trackwork and the odd winner for Mornington-based trainers
such as Pat Carey, Eric Musgrove and Gary Carson to name a few. “He was quite a popular bloke because he worked hard and battled away,” Gary Carson said. Over the last six months Booth tried his luck at Cranbourne and headed up to the Top End for the Darwin Cup Carnival. Booth’s career on the Victorian country racing circuit included wins in the 1997 Yarra Glen Cup, 2008 Burrumbeet Cup, 2012 Great Western Cup, the 2012 and 2013 Gunbower Gold Cup, the 2014 Hanging Rock Cup and Warracknabeal Cup and the 2015 Manangatang Cup.
