THE state government has stepped in to scrutinise Frankston Council with the appointment of a monitor to oversee council’s operations. The government intervention comes after the Local Government Investigations and Compliance Inspectorate highlighted concerns about governance at council. The state councils watchdog noted council public meetings have dragged on over several evenings this year, a meeting was cancelled due to a boycott by some councillors and there are also concerns about council spending not listed in council’s official budget. Labor Local Government Minister Natalie Hutchins announced on Sunday (10 September) she had decided to appoint a monitor to oversee council at the recommendation of the inspectorate. “Frankston deserves a council that works in their best interests and is not beset by infighting,” Ms Hutchins said in a statement. “The monitor will work with the councillors to improve the way they work as a team, how they work with the administration and make regular reports to me and the community”. In May last year, during the previous council term, Frankston Labor MP Paul Edbrooke said he had discussed “some very concerning issues” about council with Ms Hutchins. “We’re trying to get along with them

but they need to know there are boundaries that we can’t overlook,” Mr Edbooke said at the time. “If they get to that stage the government has to step in.” Frankston mayor Cr Brian Cunial late on Sunday revealed he had “held concerns at the good governance of our city” and he and council CEO Dennis Hovenden had approached the state government before the Minister’s weekend announcement. “I know some of my fellow councillors have held similar concerns,” he said in a statement. “The next few years ahead are critical ones for Frankston, and it is incredibly important that Frankston has good municipal leadership. “With the support of the CEO and his executive team, I have raised my concerns with the Minister for Local Government and the Office of Local Government. “The CEO and I have spoken with the Minister’s chief of staff and met with the Local Government Inspectorate to raise concerns. I am pleased they have recognised that action was needed. “The appointment of a monitor will allow the councillor group to reset the workings of the council to ensure the community of Frankston gets the leadership it deserves. “I see this as an opportunity for us to set a new direction for both the council and Frankston, in the best interests of our community.” Continued Page 3

Waste not wanted: Rubbish dumped at Langwarrin last week. Picture: Yanni

Waste dumping ‘waste of money’ Stephen Taylor steve@baysidenews.com.au THE cost of cleaning up illegally dumped rubbish at the Arthurs Seat State Park and Langwarrin Flora and Fauna Reserve is taking away money that could go to both parks’ upkeep, according to Parks Victoria. Parks Victoria ranger Luke Ashford said weekly dumps of household and green waste, building material, old furniture and timber offcuts, had to be cleaned up by two rangers over an average two hours each week costing $36,000 a year. “That’s money that’s not going back into parks where it should be going,” he said. Parks Victoria spokeswoman Sally Nowlan said the cost of clearing the most recent waste dumping at Arthurs Seat would be about $2500 – more than usual as the rubbish had been pushed over a cliff making retrieval difficult.

She said another waste dump “hotspot” was Devilbend Natural Features Reserve, Moorooduc. Mr Ashford said dumpers are even resorting to cutting wire fences so they could drive their waste into parks to dump it. The cost of replacing fencing adds to the clean-up bill. He said ill-informed residents backing onto reserves often just threw their green waste over the fence, thinking it would go unnoticed. This can spread weeds in the parks harming indigenous plants. Ms Nowlan said the annual clean up cost statewide is close to $1 million. “It happens every week and we are really sick of it,” she said. “It takes massive amounts of time and money to clean it up. “Often the rubbish is recyclable, so why they have to dump it I don’t know. One load even included a bag of dirty nappies. “We are looking at installing surveil-

lance cameras at rubbish ‘hotspots’ because we have to track these pests down.” Mornington Peninsula Shire acting infrastructure services executive manager Graham Riley said it is “disappointing” when rubbish is dumped at parks and reserves. “We encourage the community to respect the peninsula and take care of our environment,” he said. “The collection of dumped rubbish and general litter costs us more than $480,000 each year. The shire provides extra capacity garbage, recycling and green waste bins to residential properties for an additional fee.” Environment Protection Authority officers are always on the lookout for dumpers who face fines of $317 for basic litter but up to $800 for rubbish containing dangerous material, such as glass. Businesses face fines of up to $250,000.


Councillor to cop legal bill Neil Walker neil@baysidenews.com.au RATEPAYERS will not foot any legal bill for a councillor accused of condoning alleged defamatory comments on Facebook. The deputy mayor Cr Steve Toms asked his fellow councillors to approve payment of legal fees he may incur as the result of a threatened defamation suit from Frankston Labor MP Paul Edbrooke. Councillors unanimously decided “that it is not appropriate for public funds to be used to settle or defend the foreshadowed defamation proceedings in relation to councillor Steve Toms”. The decision, made behind closed doors after last Monday evening’s council meeting on 4 September, was made public while a council officer report about the request to pay legal fees was deemed “confidential” by councillors. Lawyers hired by Mr Edbrooke have written to Cr Toms demanding an apology for the posting of an image on Facebook of animals copulating alongside comments about the state MP. The closed Facebook group page called ‘Young Street Traders And Others Affected By The Rejuvenation Project’ has 62 members and one of its two adminstrators is Cr Toms. Facebook group administrators can “approve or deny posts in the group” and “remove posts and comments on posts” according to the social media giant’s guidelines.

Some Young St traders are angry that a $13 million state government upgrade of the street near Frankston train station, begun in November last year and due to be complete by May, is now forecast to be finished by the end of October. Cr Toms, a Labor Party member, has sided with traders and has been highly critical of the Labor state government’s handling of the Young St redevelopment, calling on compensation for business owners. Mr Edbrooke said he was unhappy that the image on the Facebook page administrated by Cr Toms was shown to his young daughter by friends at

school and she asked the MP about the picture. “I’m happy to have respectful, robust conversations with anyone,” Mr Edbrooke said in a statement. “But it is unacceptable that my family and I are exposed to nasty abuse as depicted on this Facebook page administered by a Frankston councillor.” Cr Toms did not return calls on Friday before publication. In another legal dispute, the deputy mayor also dropped an intervention order request against a member of the public described as “a former friend” by Cr Toms in a statement submitted to Frankston Magistrates’ Court.

Monitor imposed on council Continued from Page 1 A municipal monitor will attend council meetings, in public and at briefings behind closed doors, to oversee council’s performance. The minister has the power to stand down councillors and instruct council on governance direction on the advice of the monitor. Councils can be suspended and government administrators can be brought in to run and manage council operations. Central Goldfields Shire Council was sacked last month by the state government amid financial mismanagement failures. The City of Greater Geelong council was sacked last year after an independent report found a culture of bullying and harassment. Mr Edbrooke said the community “tells me that they have had enough of the embarrassing infighting and need all our councillors to work together on behalf of the community, like they were elected to do.” “Frankston should be in the media because of the many positive things happening in our community, not because of individual councillors behaving badly.” It is not known at this stage how long the monitor will oversee Frankston Council’s operations. Frankston ratepayers will pay for the monitor’s work at council.

Stay clear of hospitals PEOPLE feeling unwell – especially with flu-like symptoms – should avoid visiting friends and family in hospital to limit the spread of the virus. That’s the plea from Peninsula Health, which is urging members of the public to take sensible steps to stop the spread

of germs. Those feeling unwell should see their doctor for treatment and minimise their exposure to others. “This is the worst flu season this decade,” Peninsula Health’s executive director of medical services Dr Tim Williams said. “It is vital that we do all we can to keep the patients that we have in our hospitals and rehabilitation services flu-free. “Some of our patients are quite unwell and are susceptible to contracting the flu, which could cause very serious complications. “So, those feeling unwell are asked to please stay at home and avoid visiting our hospitals or rehabilitation services.” To minimise the risk of contracting the virus wash your hands frequently with soap and water, throw away tissues after use, clean frequently-used surfaces and avoid sharing cups, plates and cutlery without washing. “Everyone should consider a flu jab at the start of each winter to further increase their protection. It is still not too late to receive a flu shot now,” Dr Williams said. Peninsula Health runs Frankston and Rosebud hospitals, and rehabilitation services at The Mornington Centre and at Golf Links Rd in Frankston.

TAFE taking shape THE redevelopment of the Frankston’s Chisholm TAFE is beginning to take shape with the building firm ADCO Constructions named as the construction company tasked with the expansion and partial rebuild of the campus. The South Melbourne based builder will aim to have the campus rebuilt next year and since the project is classed as a Victorian Major Project apprentices, trainees or engineering cadets must complete at least 10 per cent of the work on the building.

Australia Day stays on date Neil Walker neil@baysidenews.com.au AUSTRALIA Day will continue to be a day of celebration in Frankston after councillors voted to reaffirm 26 January as the date council hosts citizenship ceremonies and Citizen of the Year awards. Frankston Council will restate its commitment to 26 January being “the official National Day” in a submission to the Municipal Association of Victoria. Council has rejoined the MAV, the body representing councils across the state, after a self-imposed two-year membership absence (“Council to get

back in MAV fold”, The Times 28/8/17). Cr Kris Bolam at the latest public council meeting last Monday (4 September) suggested council reaffirm its commitment to Australia Day. Some councils elsewhere in Victoria, including Yarra Council and Darebin Council — have decided in recent weeks to stop citizenship ceremonies on 26 January “out of respect for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people”. Some indigenous Australians want Australia Day moved from 26 January since this date marks the anniversary of the 1788 arrival of the First Fleet of British ships at Port Jackson and is often referred to as “Invasion Day” by opponents of the January celebrations.

“You can only imagine the outrage if there was a movement within America to get rid of Independence Day and I think that outrage is just as applicable in Australia,” Cr Bolam said at the meeting. He acknowledged other councils have the right to decide how they commemorate Australia Day. “Their voters will decide in three years’ time whether that was the right call or not. Frankston tonight has said loud and clear ‘we’re keeping Australia Day’ – other councils can do what they want.” Cr Glenn Aitken mounted an impassioned defence of Australia Day. “It’s a great pity that we even have to raise the issue of retaining Australia

Day as a national day. I have to say, as far as I’m concerned, the people who are pushing for Australia Day to be abandoned or altered in whatever form, they need to go and get a life. “I don’t know what’s going on. People are getting so precious today that you’re almost afraid to move and speak in what’s supposed to be a democratic society. “I’m proud of my country. Our family have lived here now for many generations and I love the country that I live in and I love the land that we have. I’m sick of critics and the people who keep on pushing and shoving and being loud with these sorts of issues.” Cr Colin Hampton suggested there could be change afoot for Australia in

the near future. “Eventually when this country comes to its senses and we become a republic ... then and only then should we look at a change in Australia Day once that republic has been pronounced,” he said. “I believe at that time it would be an appropriate time to call it ‘Australians Day’ which would encompass all of us. Hopefully on that day, there would be recognition of our indigenous people too.” The MAV will hold a state meeting on 20 October and Frankston Council will also flag disquiet over level crossings removal consultation, threats to the autonomy of council decision making and is pushing for state constitutional recognition of local government.

Children’s book deals with dementia AS people live longer, memories can get shorter but that does not mean families’ shared time together is any less precious. That’s the message in the pages of a new children’s book dealing with the potentially upsetting issue of dementia. Grandma Forgets, written by Paul Russell and illustrated by Langwarrin resident Nicky Johnston, tells the story of a young girl coping with her grandma’s dementia amid memories of earlier times. It’s the latest in a series of children’s books dealing with weighty topics illustrated by Johnston. The Grandma Forgets tale is loosely based on Russell’s own observations coping with “the terribly sad disease” of dementia experienced by his grandmother.

Johnston, whose hand painted drawings have adorned the pages of previous books including [name] and [name], thinks publishers approach her to collaborate with writers since her “innocent style” of illustration can draw readers into a story. “I think books can be a gateway to a conversation tackling real life in a way that’s appropriate for children,” she said. “Even in this digital age, children’s books have not slowed down.” Grandma Forgets was released last month but will be officially launched at Beaumaris Library on Saturday 16 September to coincide with Dementia Awareness Month. Johnson says the book has picked up attention globally, including in the UK, since a worldwide ageing population means its focus

on dementia is universal. Feedback from families dealing with dementia has been “amazing”, she said. “It’s been quite overwhelming … but that’s what makes it lovely, connecting with someone else’s story.” n Grandma Forgets will be officially launched at Beaumaris Library, 96 Reserve Rd, Beaumaris on Saturday 16 September at 1-3pm, sponsored by Prestige InHome Care and supported by Alzheimer’s Australia. Neighbours actor Takara Honda is a guest speaker about his personal journey dealing with dementia alongside author Paul Russell.

Two-wheel getaway: Images of a man police believe can assist with their inquiries.

Police seek offender

POLICE have released images of a man who allegedly assaulted a man in Frankston and then stole his bicycle. The victim, 42, was walking along Beach St on Tuesday 22 August when he was involved in a fight with the man, 4.20pm. Victoria Police media spokesperson Sergeant Kim Bramwell said the victim was knocked unconscious and received “significant” head injuries. He was taken by ambulance to Frankston Hospital in a serious condition. The offender rode off on what is believed to be the victim’s bike. The victim had no memory of the incident. Anyone who witnessed the incident or who has more information is urged to contact Crime Stoppers 1800 333 000 or submit a confidential report at crimestoppersvic.com.au online.

Face cuts after fight

A LANGWARRIN man who objected to having his son’s friends arrive early one morning ordered them to leave –

Police patrol and was allegedly stabbed in the face, Friday 25 August. Detective Leading Senior Constable Ashley Eames, of Frankston CIU, said the 51-year-old Turner Rd man was wielding a golf club when he confronted the three men in a car in his driveway, 5.40am. A passenger, 25, of Carrum Downs, got out and allegedly slashed at the resident with a knife, causing a wound requiring 12 stitches. This led to him later being charged with intentionally causing injury. He was remanded to appear at Frankton Magistrates’ Court, 26 September. Detective Eames said the victim was “expected to make a full recovery”. The victim’s son, 22, also came out wielding a golf club and attacked the men’s car as it drove off, causing panel damage. This led to a heated exchange of texts and threats between the owner of the car and the son over restitution for the damage. The owner, 26, of Cranbourne, and his passenger, 18, of Frankston, have been charged with making threats to kill via the text messages. The owner was also charged with possessing the drug GHB and methamphetamines. The passenger was charged with possession and using methamphetamines. They will appear at Frankston Magistrates’ Court, 16 November.

Threats to kill

A BANDIT allegedly made threats to kill while robbing the United service station, Seaford Rd, Seaford, Wednesday 6 September. The man, in his mid-to-late 20s, and wearing a red cap, white sunglasses,

track pants and hoodie, menaced the attendant while demanding he hand over the till, 1.10am. The man took the till and fled south-west along Frankston-Dandenong Rd. Carrum Downs police and the dog squad were on the scene within minutes but could not find him.

Call the cops

A MAN who stole five packs of bourbon from a Carrum Downs liquor outlet told the attendant to “call the police” when she challenged him and then allegedly attempted to shoot a Taser weapon at her. The weapon did not fire in the 2.30am, Monday 4 September robbery. Anyone with information is urged to call Frankston Embona Taskforce 9784 5555.

Street fighters

TWO groups brawled in Coolgardie St, Frankston North, 5.20pm, Friday 1 September, prompting residents to call police. The brawlers are believed to be known to each other but were “uncooperative” and would not name their attackers, police said. Ambulance officers treated a 31-year-old man for cuts to the top and back of his head. He was later arrested over an unrelated matter.

Carrum Downs police attended the collision, 4.50pm, Sunday 3 September, and found the 26-year-old in the car with her two young children. She later returned a blood alcohol reading of 0.283 per cent. Police media officer Kim Bramwell said the woman’s licence was immediately suspended. She will be charged on summons with an array of traffic offences.

Coward’s punch POLICE are seeking help in identifying a man involved in an assault outside a takeaway near the Grand Hotel, Frankston, 2.20am, Saturday 1 July. The man allegedly knocked his victim out with a coward’s punch, causing a facial fracture. The assailant is described as 180cm tall, thin build, short brown hair, clean shaven with a sleeve tattoo on his right arm. He was wearing a white T-shirt with the letters NXP in large dark-coloured letters on his upper back. He was wearing light-coloured pants with dark runners and smoking a cigarette. The offender, below, was accompanied by a blonde woman.

Hall hit again

THE 3rd Carrum Scouts hall has been vandalised or broken into seven times in the past three months, police said. Offenders on the evening of Saturday 2 September extensively damaged the roller door and side sheeting of the hall in Whatley St but do not appear to have gained entry. Anyone with information is asked to call Moorabbin detectives on 9556 6111.

Window smashed THE rear window of a car parked in the driveway of a house in Tonbridge St, Carrum, was smashed overnight, Friday 1 September. The owner thought he heard a noise at 8pm but did not investigate. Next morning he found the 2004 Lexus damaged. The cost of the window is put at $600. Nothing was stolen.

Plates taken

Bauer back in Carrum battle LIBERAL candidate for Carrum Donna Bauer will hope voters decide to go back to the future at the polls in next November’s state election. Ms Bauer, formerly the MP for Carrum from 2010 to 2014 under the previous Coalition state government, has won Liberal preselection to try to take back the seat from Labor incumbent Sonya Kilkenny. Ms Bauer won preselection over Carmella Monger last weekend. A third candidate Gandhi Bevinakoppa bowed out before party members voted to select the Carrum candidate. Ms Kilkenny won the seat from Ms Bauer at the 2014 election by a slim 0.7 per cent. The Carrum electorate’s boundaries were changed in the lead up to the previous state election to exclude Aspendale, Edithvale and parts of Chelsea, that were transferred to the seat of Mordialloc, and the addition of Carrum Downs and Sandhurst. Ms Bauer’s preselection win finalises the Liberal Party’s line-up to try to win back all four of the marginal “sandbelt” seats along the Frankston line regarded as crucial to winning government. Kingston councillor Geoff Gledhill will face Labor MP Tim Richardson in Mordialloc, Frankston police station commander Senior Sergeant Michael Lamb will go up against Frankston Labor MP Paul Edbrooke and Asher Judah will try to win Bentleigh from Labor MP Nick Staikos.

Road to election pledge Neil Walker neil@baysidenews.com.au A CARRUM road earmarked for closure under the state government’s level crossings removal project would be reopened if the Coalition is re-elected at next November’s state election. Liberal state opposition leader Matthew Guy and opposition roads spokesman Ryan Smith visited Carrum on Monday (4 September) and pledged to reverse the decision to close the road as part of a Level Crossing Removal Authority plan to build a rail bridge in the area. “The decision to close the level crossing at Eels Race Rd by Daniel Andrews shows his utter contempt for motorists,” Mr Guy said in a statement. “It is now clear to the Carrum community that Daniel Andrews had no intention of removing this level crossing, rather, the “solution” is to simply close the road. “Today, the Liberal Nationals pledge to reopen the road if elected.” Carrum resident Michael Tellesson, who is leading a community fight against the road’s closure, welcomed the promise to reopen the road if it is closed. Some Carrum residents say they

will be “landlocked” and the loss of Eel Race Rd will cause traffic bottlenecks at the McLeod Rd intersection. “Taking that commitment on its face value, it’s a good step forward,” Mr Telleson said. “It’s such a bad decision and it doesn’t make sense. We’ll keep fighting for it not to be closed in the

first place. It’s a waste of taxpayers’ money.” He said there is still time for the government to intervene and reverse the decision to close Eel Race Rd. Carrum Labor MP Sonya Kilkenny did not respond to questions about the Eel Race Rd closure before publication deadline.

Liberal candidate for Carrum Donna Bauer joined Mr Guy and Mr Smith on Monday to announce the Coalition’s promise to reopen Eel Race Rd if elected. “Ms Kilkenny seems to have no interest in supporting the people she is supposed to be representing, preferring to be an apologist for the Andrews Labor government,” she said.

No way out Even those who voted Labor in the last election, did not vote to have their beautiful beachside ruined by sky rail. Most of us in our small Carrum community are angry that this monstrosity will ruin our coastline and way of life. What will be built will not resemble those pretty images you are seeing. Come to Carrum, Seaford and Frankston and see how graffiti appears on any blank wall or concrete. We didn’t vote to have our local access road closed either. They are not just removing a crossing, they are removing a road, our road, Eel Race Rd, which allows us to get onto Nepean Highway. We will only have one way out via McLeod Rd, which is already crowded and dangerous. Our narrow local streets, filling up with high density apartments, can’t cope. We have two schools in the area and all those parents and kids will have to battle their way in and out of the schools. And, what about emergency vehicle access? Historic buildings and businesses are going to make way for a boulevard nobody wants. A shocking waste of money that could be used to put the rail under road. Some of us are fighting hard to stop this madness. Others are pathetically resigned in acceptance and will complain after it happens. Some are just selling up and moving house. It is sad, very sad, that a beautiful part of Victoria – our home - will be ruined for future generations. Jennifer Wilcox, Carrum

Excessive rates We are curious to find out how Frankston Council can justify the excessive level of rates being charged to householders in the city. Having recently moved from the City of Port Phillip to a property in Frankston South which has a lower capital improved valuation, we are astonished to find that the rates on our property in Frankston South are more than $2000 higher than on our previous address in Port Phillip. Not only is the general rate higher in Frankston but there are added charges, such as the municipal charge $155.60, garbage for a 120 litre bin $321.50 and green waste bin $135.50. These services are all included in the base rate by

Port Phillip Council as well as twice-monthly street sweeping and free at call hard waste collection. Both Port Phillip and Frankston have extensive beaches and reserves to maintain in addition to the suburban parks and reserves. If our property was 800 metres further south in Mt Eliza the general rate charges by Mornington Peninsula Shire would be $1187 lower and the waste charge is only $197 as compared to Frankston’s $321.50. What ultra extra special services can we expect to receive from Frankston to justify the excessive level of rate charges? Graeme Burt, Frankston South

‘New low’ on asylum seekers For many years now, I have grown increasingly concerned about the inhumane way successive Australian governments have been treating asylum seekers and refugees who have come to our country by boat. For me, the latest plan to deprive medical evacuees from Nauru and Manus Island of income support and a place to live has reached a new appalling low. Consequently, I jumped at the chance to join my fellow Grandmothers Against the Detention of Refugee Children outside [Liberal MP for Flinders] Greg Hunt’s office in Hastings in order to present a letter and petition imploring the Coalition to reverse its harsh policies on refugees. Imagine our surprise and shock when we found the door to the office locked and no one willing to receive us or our letter even though they knew we were coming. Apparently, the Australian Federal Police had ordered the staff not to open the door, no doubt, on government orders. This is a new low for democracy when voting citizens are unable to present a peaceable protest to their local member of Parliament. We felt locked out of the democratic process. We were outraged, of course, by this treatment but it was nothing compared to how refugees on Nauru and Manus must feel as they remain locked out of our country in conditions that severely threaten their well-being. It is time to give them a fair go. Let’s encourage our politicians to bring them here and allow them to reclaim their lives. Jean Pengilly, Hastings

Kingston steers away from port support Neil Walker neil@baysidenews.com.au KINGSTON councillors have changed a previous council position supporting a second major container port in Hastings. A 5-3 majority of councillors voted at August’s public council meeting to “take no position” on backing Hastings over Bay West near Geelong as the location of a second container port when the Port of Melbourne reaches capacity. Cr Rosemary West’s notice of motion urged Kingston Council to effectively drop support for a major port at Hastings and comes in the wake

of neighbouring Frankston Council’s decision in May to end its support for Hastings over Bay West. Infrastructure Victoria, an independent body established by the state government, has flagged Bay West as the preferred second container port location when needed, possibly as early as 2035. “I don’t think we need to expand our trade to the point we don’t manufacture anything,” Cr West said at the meeting. “I certainly don’t think we would be wanting to destroy the environment of western port by supporting the Port of Hastings as I’m afraid the last council did.” Cr Geoff Gledhill, the Liberal

Party’s candidate for the seat of Mordialloc at next year’s state election, noted “63 per cent” of goods imported into Melbourne are transported south east of Melbourne. “We do have to be involved in this discussion because we’ve got one of the largest light manufacturing areas in Australia through the south east that starts in Braeside and Mordialloc and heads all the way out to Dandenong,” Cr Gledhill said. “Food processing is seen as a particular growth industry in this area. We’ve got businesses that supported the motor industry disappearing … we need to replace that industry because that’s where the jobs are.” Cr Gledhill noted Hastings “is a

deep water port”. He acknowledged Infrastructure Victoria is leaning towards Bay West as the site for a second major port but said there are concerns about how to deepen heads at Bay West for larger container ships. Cr West said that the state government, in her view, should build a freight rail link from the Port of Melbourne to the south east to transport goods. She noted any port expansion at Hastings would likely put either 1.5 million B-Double trucks or 50,000 freight trains on railways across Melbourne, according to a Victoria University report. Crs Tamara Barth, Ron Brownless, Georgina Oxley, Steve Staikos and

West voted for council to take no position on a major port at Hastings. Crs Tamsin Bearsley, Gledhill and George Hua voted against Cr West’s notice of motion. The mayor Cr David Eden did not raise his hand to indicate his vote. No formal division was called to officially record councillors’ votes on the matter. Mornington Peninsula Shire council supported a major port at Hastings alongside Frankston and Kingston councils in a joint submission to the state government from the South East Melbourne (SEMS) group of councils in late 2015.

Councillor wants strength in numbers A FRANKSTON councillor is pushing for council employees throughout Victoria to be subject to a single enterprise bargaining agreement. Cr Colin Hampton, who described himself as a former EBA negotiator “in the newspapers business” at this month’s public council meeting, claimed staff at councils are paid more than employees in other sectors. “Local government is between 15 and 17 per cent above the national wage in this country because the unions have got such an open hand in negotiating,” Cr Hampton said at the council meeting. The councillor, a longtime Labor Party member, said unions had

the upper hand in negotiations with council management over pay and conditions for workers. “If I had the ability that the union has here to negotiate individually around the state I’d be rubbing my hands.” Cr Quinn McCormack was the only one of nine councillors at the meeting to vote against Cr Hampton’s proposal to have a statewide collective bargaining agreement discussed at the Municipal Association of Victoria’s annual conference in May next year. The proposal calls on the Fair Work Commission to negotiate a statewide EBA for all 79 of Victoria’s councils. There would be three separate pay

bands within any single state EBA — inner metropolitan, outer metropolitan including Frankston and country Victoria. Cr Hampton’s attempt to push for solidarity between councils negotiating with unions comes as Frankston Council management and the Australian Services Union remain deadlocked over a pay rise offer to staff. A 386-274 majority of Frankston Council staff rejected a 1.4 per cent pay rise for the second time last month. The union says the 1.4 per cent offer is effectively a pay cut since it is less than the annual rate of inflation. A near 10 per cent pay rise in 2015

for council CEO Dennis Hovenden — taking his remuneration to $325,000 — has been highlighted by the ASU in its campaign to persuade council workers to “vote no” against the 1.4 per cent pay rise offer. Council chief executive officer pay is not subject to an enterprise bargaining agreement and any change to CEO pay and conditions during the term of a contract is decided by councillors during annual performance reviews discussed behind closed doors. Neil Walker Striking a bargain: Cr Colin Hampton wants councils across Victoria to band together to collectively negotiate pay and conditions with staff.

No civic banner for refugees

Grandmothers locked out of MP’s office Keith Platt keith@baysidenews.com.au

A BANNER to welcome refugees visiting Frankston Council offices has been shot down by councillors. A majority of councillors at this month’s public council meeting declined to back a proposal by deputy mayor Cr Steve Toms to hang a banner targeted at asylum seeker newcomers to Frankston at the civic centre in Davey St. “Refugees often feel nervous and untrusting of government services like Frankston City Council when approaching them due to the fleeing of countries with violent dictatorships,” Cr Toms said at the meeting. “[It would be] a tangible hand of friendship to our city’s new arrivals in our civic centre.” Councillors said refugees are welcome in the Frankston community but saw no need to display a banner at council offices at an estimated cost of $300. A council officers report, tabled at the meeting, noted any refugees banner “is highly political and its consistency with policy, depends on the position of the government at the time”. “This is an absolute waste, in my view, of ratepayers’ money,” the mayor Cr Brian Cunial said during debate. Cr Cunial said he is “a son of Italian immigrants”. Before the banner was voted down, the mayor expressed concern about a language barrier. “I hope it’s written in the appropriate language so they can at least understand it,” Cr Cunial said. Cr Toms unsuccessfully argued other councils such as Queenscliffe Council displayed signage welcoming refugees to council premises. “Given all the hatred in the world, one has to agree that we need a little more love and acceptance and we can start right here at Frankston City Council.” Crs Cunial, Colin Hampton, Lilian O’Connor and Michael O’Reilly voted against the motion. Crs Glenn Aitken, Sandra Mayer and Toms voted for the banner. Crs Quinn McCormack and Kris Bolam were not in the council chamber during voting. Neil Walker

THE office of Flinders MP Greg Hunt was in lockdown last Tuesday morning as a group of grandmothers protested about the federal government’s treatment of refugees. The protest by the South Peninsula Grandmothers against the Detention of Refugee Children came one week after police forcibly evicted members of a church group from the office who were calling for better treatment of asylum seekers being detained on Manus Island and Nauru (“Police praised by ‘evicted’ church group” The Times 28/8/17). “Other members of the public who came were not able to enter to talk with office staff. A woman visiting before our group had formed, could not get in with her request. The door was locked against us all,” Ann Renkin, one of the protesting grandmothers, said. “Towards the end of our [90-minute] peaceful demonstration I rang Minister Hunt’s office from outside the office door. The answer to my request for them to open the door so that I could deliver a letter was refused on the grounds that they had been advised by the federal police to lock themselves inside, and us out.” Ms Renkin said her group had earlier briefed Mr Hunt’s staff about the demonstration and said they would be delivering a letter for him. “We were a small group of law-abiding electors coming to him, our federal representative, to tell him again that we are very critical of his government’s refugee policies and abusive practices,” she said. “Does our local MP’s distrust extend to all grass roots organisations in his electorate? “Do we assume Mr Hunt is only available to electors who agree with him?” The latest protest outside Mr Hunt’s office also came in the wake of reports of a boat carrying six Chinese men breaching Australia’s border security by landing on Saibai Island.

PROTESTING members of the South Peninsula Grandmothers against the Detention of Refugee Children locked out of the Hastings office of Flinders MP Greg Hunt.

An Australian island in the Torres Strait, Saibai is less than five kilometres from Papua New Guinea. The landing would appear to end the federal government’s ability to boast about its long record of preventing boat landings on Australian soil. People from PNG are allowed to visit Saibai without visas or passport. Five Chinese nationals were reported as being returned to their country after being detained on Saibai. A PNG man and a Chinese man were later taken to Cairns where they were charged with aggravated people smuggling under the Migration Act. Mr Hunt was last week asked by The Times for details – timelines and numbers - of the government’s refugee “resettlement agreement with the United States” he had mentioned in a statement issued the previous week. Mr Hunt’s Hastings-based media advisor Samantha Robin replied that the federal government had an “arrangement with the United States for the resettlement of refugees from Nauru and Papua New Guinea who are endorsed by the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR) for referral to the existing United States Refugee Admissions Program. President Trump has confirmed this agreement”. “US authorities will conduct their own assessment of refugees referred by the UNHCR to determine which refugees and how many are resettled in the US,” Ms Robin said. “Resettlement in the US is just one of the op-

tions available to support the resettlement of refugees. Refugees will continue to be resettled temporarily in Nauru, and permanently in Papua New Guinea and Cambodia. “The priority is the resettlement of the most vulnerable refugees, with an initial focus on women, children and families.” Recordings of a 28 January phone conversation between US President Donald Trump and Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull released last month by The Washington Post shows that the resettlement “agreement” is non-specific on numbers but necessary for the government to maintain its hard-line stance against refugees arriving by boat. “You can decide to take 1000 or 100. It is entirely up to you,” Mr Turnbull is recorded as saying to Mr Trump. “The obligation is to only go through the process.” Mr Turnbull then assures Mr Trump that the “vast bulk” of people detained on Nauru and Manus Island are “economic refugees” and Australian authorities know “exactly everything about them”. “Let me explain. We know exactly who they are. They have been on Nauru or Manus for over three years and the only reason we cannot let them into Australia is because of our commitment to not allow people to come by boat. Otherwise we would have let them in. If they had arrived by airplane and with a tourist visa then they would be here,” Mr Turnbull says.

The enormous 5717 square metre block has been extensively landscaped over the years with elegant gardens alive with colour adorning the front and rear of the property. An abundant selection of native fauna has been shaped and sculpted to perfection and cascades down the length of the block which gently descends to an ornamental dam complete with viewing platform.

The enjoyable reality is that these inspiring angles capture the sun and incredible vistas of sea and gardens so beautifully that they are hardly ever out of your field of vision. The enormous ground floor begins with a wide entry where you are immediately drawn into a huge dining area and lounge room courtesy of the show stopping wall of floor-to-ceiling windows that frame the breathtaking view. Designed in a glorious arch, the nearby kitchen features timber cabinets, two cook tops, a double oven and a dishwasher, and there is an equally spacious family room. To the north-west wing are two bedrooms that share one of three bathrooms – other wet areas here include the laundry and a mud room - and across to the opposite side of this level is the opulent master bedroom where a massive ensuite boasts a spa bath. A separate study tucked around to the right as you enter could be a fourth bedroom if required. Downstairs is a superb games room that opens to the indoor swimming pool and spa, housed in an astounding conservatory, and after your workout in the home gym you can ease away other stresses in the sauna before retiring to the upstairs balcony.

100 YEARS AGO THIS WEEK...

Pig a valuable asset on the raffle rounds Compiled by Cameron McCullough THE pig, kindly donated to the Wattle Club by Mr Reeves of “The Grange” Mornington Road, has proved to be a valuable asset, and owing to the public spirit of its various owners, the funds of the Club have benefited to the amount of £7 17s 6d. The pig was won at the euchre tournament by Mrs C. Wood and Mr J. Wells who promptly returned “Denis” to the club to be raffled. This Irish gold mine was raffled on the spot, the sale of tickets realising £1 11s. The winner proved to be Mr Reeves, the original donor. Mr Reeves returned the pig “some more”, to be re-raffled. Thanks to the vigorous efforts of Mrs Reeves and Sgt. Cunneen, tickets to the value of £5 6s 6d were sold. The raffle was drawn at the euchre party on Thursday evening and on this occasion the winner proved to be Private R. J. Crooke, of Frankston. Once again “the pig came back”, as Pte. Crooke returned him to the club. He was then sold by Bruce auction and was purchased by Pte. Crooke himself for £1. The total amount realised was £7 17s 6d. We trust that this truly “dinkum” pig, after his short, but eventful career, will be allowed to end his days in peace. *** CORPORAL E. B Irvine’s (Flinders name appeared in the 336 casualty list as having been wounded. *** THE hon. treasurer of the Frankston and district roll of Honor gratefully acknowledges receipt of the following

donations:—Sir John Madden £5; J H., 5s. *** A MEETING of the Frankston Branch of the National Federation will be held in the Reading Room of the Mechanics’ Institute on Wednesday next, at 8 o’clock when it is hoped there will be a good muster of members. *** A PUBLIC meeting will be held in the Frankston Mechanics’ Hall on Monday evening next for the purpose of considering the advisability of planting an Honor Avenue in Frankston. As this is a matter that interests nearly everyone a full attendance is requested. *** A PROGREESSIVE euchre tournament took place again at the Red Cross Social, Tyabb, Saturday Sept. 8th and as usual there was a splendid house, and the funds will benefit to a good extent. Great excitement prevailed during the tournament. Miss A. Gibson carried off the lady’s prize and Mr Les Potts the gent’s. After supper an hours dancing brought a successful evening to a close. There will be no Red Cross Social on the 22nd Sept owing to there being a big concert and dance on Friday Sept 21st, to be given by the old scholar’s club. *** THE Mornington Junction Branch of the Lady Mayoress’s Patriotic League has just completed its 1st half year and reports as follows. The six officers elected are, President, Mrs W. M. Green; vice-presi-

dent, Mrs Parris; secretary, Mrs A. E. Butler; treasurer, Mrs Smale. During the half year £9 8s has been received in subscriptions from members, £8 2s 0d in donations, and the net proceeds of two concerts added £8 10s 6d to the funds, totalling £21 0s 6d. Material to the value of over £20 had been purchased, leaving a small balance, cash in hand. Fifty-two shirts and 110 pairs of socks have been forwarded to head quarters of the League. *** MR A. E. Lasslett, hon. treasurer of the Frankston and District Roll of Honor Fund has received the following letter from Sir John Madden:Dear Sir. I am much gratified to learn from your letter that the people of our town and district have so promptly undertaken the obvious and pleasing duty of respecting and .perpetuating the memory of those noble men of our neighbors, who saw their patriotic duty instantly, and did it so nobly, too many of them, unhappily, to the extent of giving their young and precious lives for it. I send to you herein my cheque for a donation towards the work proposed, with my compliments. Very truly yours, John Madden. *** THE euchre party and dance, held by the Wattle Club on Thursday evening last, was highly successful. The hall was full and extra tables had to be brought in at the last moment to accommodate the crowd. Mrs Guums was the successful lady player, winning a very handsome

vanity box. The gentleman’s prize was donated by Mrs Jas. Wells, (a silver mounted pipe,) which Mr Adams was fortunate enough to win. The dance which was subsequently held, was thoroughly enjoyed by all. *** AT the city morgue yesterday the coroner (Dr. Cole) held an inquest touching the death of Arnold Addicott, who was killed by a motor car, driven by Mr M. B. Wettenhall, of Flinders, at Hastings Road, Frankston, on Sunday, September 2nd. Sub Inspector Parkin conducted the case for the Police Department. Mr. Horsfall watched proceedings on behalf of the deceased boy’s relatives and Mr Wettenhall was also represented by Counsel. After hearing the evidence of Frank Addicott. (father of deceased), Nellie Addicott (his sister), Harold Reeves, Kathleen Dombrain, Milton Burgess Wettenhall (driver of the car) and Constable Ryan, the coroner returned a verdict that Arnold Addicott was killed by a motor car, driven by Milton Burgess Wettenhall, the death being caused by misadventure and no neglect had been shown by the motor driver. *** Frankston Court of Petty Sessions. Monday, 10th Sept 1917. (Before Mr Cohen, P.M. and Messrs Williams, Oates, M’Lean, and Grant J’s P.) A visitor to Frankston named Edgar Byrne was charged by the police with being drunk and disorderly and using insulting words on 31st August last. Inspector O’Brien prosecuted and Mr Cook appeared for the defendant.

E.C. Ryan, constable of police stationed at Frankston deposed that at half past one on the morning of the 31st August he heard a knock at his door, and defendant was there and said that he wanted a car to take him home. At 12.30 the same day, was on duty in Davey St near Pier Hotel. Saw defendant go into hotel. Followed him in. The defendant had a dressing gown on unbuttoned. Witness asked him if it was not time to get off the drink, and he answered by saying “who the h— are you” When told he was a constable he said. “I don’t care a d— who you are, I know what you want; you want a drink.” Witness then arrested him. On the way to the lockup be offered the constable £1 to let him go. He was afterwards released on bail. When he was charged by the magistrate at the lockup he was very insulting and said “he was shick” and ‘’was a d— fool. Had been down at Garrood’s and had been d— well shick.” When I warned him about his behaviour before the magistrate he did not seem to care and took no notice. The defendant practically admitted the offence, but pleaded that he had come to Frankston under medical advice. He stayed at Garrood’s Hotel and took drink that evening - the first for three years - and it took undue effect. The Bench considered the offence fully proved and defendant was fined 40s or 14 days imprisonment. *** From the pages of the Mornington Standard, 15 September 1917

THE MEANING OF EXISTENCE... AND OTHER SHORT STORIES

A Remembrance of Teaspoons Past By Stuart McCullough IT’S innate. A part of the human condition that is near impossible to resist. Hard-wired into our souls is a need to accumulate and preserve both for posterity and ensure that those who lease storage units for money will never be without income. Personally, I reckon the urge to collect is one of the few remaining remnants of our ‘hunter / gatherer’ phase. Just as a crocodile reminds us of a prehistoric age, so too does our desire to gather take us back to a time when our knuckles hung a little closer to the ground. It’s in our nature to collect souvenirs. No family holiday was considered complete without a trip to the gift shop. These were always the last stop before the exit and the task was to find something in less ten minutes. It was kind like a discount version of The Hunger Games. The gift shop is where we were set free to roam, with the strict expectation that we were using the time wisely to select something that would store this family event forever in our memories. There was, naturally, a strict spending limit. I can’t recall if it was five dollars or a little more, or if the rules of the free market applied and we were compelled to use our pocket money. I only know that choosing was a lot of pressure. It’s worth pointing out that I have two younger brothers and two younger sisters. Whenever we were set loose on a gift store, I could never escape the sneaking suspicion that none of them felt terrified at the prospect of having ten minutes to choose a gift. In fact, they relished it. They would move

PAGE 20

between the aisles with both pace and purpose as I wandered aimlessly in the vague hope that a suitable item would simply walk up, tap me on the shoulder and introduce itself rather than me having to make a decision. My sisters often went for stuffed toys. When the destination was a zoo,

Frankston Times 11 September 2017

there was never a shortage of softplumed creatures to choose from. Largely, these have been left behind, but I suspect that many of them continue to lurk in various cupboards and toy boxes in my father’s house, waiting to be rediscovered. With the benefit of hindsight, soft toys were

an excellent choice. A reminder of a great day / excursion / holiday, those toys provided years of comfort. They served both the present and the past. The youngest of the brothers often gravitated towards a t-shirt. He was happy to declare go the world at large that he had been to Sovereign Hill, Sea World, Kryal Castle or the Zoo. Given the chance, he’d have worn a t-shirt that he’d just been to the Milk Bar and picked up a Wizz Fizz, had such an item of apparel existed. As souvenirs go, t-shirts could only ever be temporary as my brother was, then, still growing at a speed that could almost been seen by with the naked eye. I, however, didn’t feel comfortable with this level of disclosure. My other brother had a knack for the unexpected. When it came to picking something from the gift shop, he’d always select something completely fantastic that gave scant regard to the five-dollar limit. He was then and remains now, incredibly persuasive. Clutching the object firmly in his hand, he’d cajole my father for what seemed like hours. He’d also come up with all manner of ingenious financial solutions to secure his desired purchase. It’s enough to say that he remains the only person I’ve ever known to negatively gear a BMX for greater financial leverage. If only the bike in question had been his and not mine, it would have been fair enough. Souvenirs weren’t just for kids. My father was also an enthusiastic participant. However, for him there was no dark night of the soul as he tried to decide between a t-shirt emblazoned

with the words, ‘I Went To The Big Pineapple And All I Got Was This Lousy T-shirt’ and a coffee cup that claims to be ‘handcrafted’ but was, in fact, mass produced in Thailand. Not at all. My father is a spoon man. He collects souvenir teaspoons, the best of which are displayed on a special rack just outside the kitchen. They represent some of the world’s most exotic locations, like Dubbo, Port Lincoln and Launceston. A few months ago my father went to Europe. I have, just now, received a souvenir of his journey. It’s safe to say that, despite my history of indecision, it’s not something I’d have chosen for myself. Indeed, it’s not something anyone would choose for themselves. It’s a kitchen mitt with the word ‘Portugal’ and what looks to be the Nando’s chicken on holidays on it. While its intended use is to ensure the safe handling of hot items from the oven, I strongly suspect that to try and use the mitt in this manner would result in burns of the most severe kind. I’d have preferred a spoon. Recently, I found myself at Sovereign Hill. It’s a long story as to why; suffice to say I’ve since had stern words with my Sat Nav. But wandering through the exhibits, I couldn’t help but think of earlier trips with my brothers and sisters as we frolicked up and down the dirt streets as though there was a prize for seeing everything in the shortest possible time. Naturally, we left through the gift shop. I didn’t get anything. I didn’t need to. Turns out I still remember. stuart@stuartmccullough.com

Sharks aim to break drought PENINSULA LEAGUE

By Toe Punt BONBEACH will be looking to win its first senior premiership since 1984 when it takes on Frankston YCW in the MPNFL Peninsula Division Grand Final on Saturday. The Sharks stormed into the Grand Final after thrashing Edithvale-Aspendale by 40 points, 13.9 (87) to 7.5 (47). It was a sloppy, hard and contested first quarter but the Sharks stormed out in the second quarter and booted

seven goals to one to set-up a gamehigh 53-point margin at the main interval. The Sharks midfield was absolutely sensational, led by ruckman Dylan Jones, who was clearly the best player on the ground. Tom Hogan was just as important when he went through the ruck as well, giving ‘DJ’ a well-earned spell. Gavin Vassallo, Mark Tyrell and Jackson Casey dominated the centre clearances and prevented the Eagles from getting their hands on the footy

first. Jason Ferraro showed his grunt. In attack, the Sharks set-up with Shane McDonald, Owen Hulett and Trent Dennis-Lane. Between them, they booted 10 goals. Dennis-Lane booted five, Hulett three and McDonald two. Gary Carpenter set up the defensive half, Mark Douglas was strong and James Murnane provided great drive from half back. Beau Bailey showed his class throughout but really found touch in the last quarter.

It wasn’t a great day at the office for Edithvale-Aspendale, who looked flatfooted in the opening half. The Eagles outscored the Sharks in the second half, six goals to four, including four straight goals in the third quarter. However, the Sharks always had the answers. Graeme Yeats tried everything. He threw the magnets around at half time and it appeared to work for a period. Michael Bussey and Chris Wylie were both at the centre bounces in the

second half and mark Mullins went forward – he booted three goals. Liam Harris was the Eagles’ best while Stevey Mannix, Brendan Neville and Matt Clark worked hard. The Sharks thrashed YCW earlier in the season are every chance to prevent YCW winning its fourth premiership in a row. Next week, Frankston YCW will play Mt Eliza in the Under 19s, Seaford will tackle Mt Eliza in the Reserves and Bonbeach and Frankston YCW will battle it out in the seniors.

Bombers to meet Sorrento in Grand Final NEPEAN LEAGUE

By Toe Punt FRANKSTON Bombers will play Sorrento in the 2017 MPNFL Nepean Division Grand Final this Saturday at Frankston Park after beating Rosebud by three goals. In a tight and highly contested affair, there was very little in the game all afternoon in terms of the scoreboard but Frankston always seemed to have the edge, eventually winning 10.11 (71) to 8.5 (53). There were no goals kicked in the

opening 12 minutes of the game, such was the contest. However, goals to Lachy Mew and Keegan Downie saw Rosebud take a five-point lead into the first change. Frankston took the ascendancy in the second quarter but failed to make the opposition pay on the scoreboard, finishing the quarter with 2.5 to 1.1. The second half was very much like the first, contested footy with the battle of defences. Jarryd Amalfi and best on ground Ryan Marks-Logan dominated

across half back for the Bombers while Jackson McRae and Brenton Davidge had the better of Beau Muston and Zac Longham respectively. Frankston defender Corey Buchan got the job on Keegan Downie and kept him to two goals. Unfortunately for Rosebud, there wasn’t another forward that even looked likely to take a mark and kick a goal. The Buds’ decision making taking the ball forward was also questionable, as it kicked to unmarked oppo-

sition players consistently. Ruckmen Ben Dwyer and Ryan Kitchen broke even for the first three quarters, before Kitchen left the field in the third quarter with a hamstring injury and didn’t reappear. With the game absolutely in the balance in the last quarter and Dwyer dominating Corey Micari, the fact that Kitchen didn’t come back onto the ground provides enormous doubt over his availability in the Grand Final this week. The game was always going to be won and lost through the middle and

it was Frankston’s depth of rotations through this part of the ground that won out. Matt Harris was superb, Mitch Bosward and league medal winner Jason Kingsbury were outstanding and Dale Sutton and Alex Harnett were amongst the best players on the park. Sean Downie was magnificent for the Buds and Jack Jarman played his best final, however, the depth beyond that was not there. Some of Rosebud’s bigger name midfielders just didn’t bring their Agame.

Coaches in, out as clubs shake it up By Toe Punt IT was one of the most eventful weeks in local MPNFL football history last week. After news broke that former Sorrento and Rosebud premiership coach Nick Jewell had taken over the coaching job at Pines last Sunday afternoon, just three days later, current coach Pat Swayn was reappointed at the Pythons for the next two years. Jewell accepted the Pines coaching job in writing last Saturday night (September 2), confirmed his position with Pines president Jeff Svigos

after the story broke on Sunday afternoon and then resigned the position on Sunday night. Svigos conceded that the situation wasn’t handled well and resigned his position at Pines. Swayn met with the Pines leadership group early last week and decided to stay on as senior coach. It was confirmed that players and officials of the club were unaware of the Jewell appointment. Swayn said on the RPP Footy Show on Saturday morning that Svigos had been “great for the Pines FC

for many years and made a mistake”. “We all make mistakes and I’m supportive of Jeff staying involved and continuing the path to help us continue to improve,” Swayn said. Two weeks ago, in one of the worst kept secrets in footy, Jewell was set to come onto the RPP Footy Show with Karingal president Troy Callahan to announce his appointment at the Bulls for three seasons. Pines made a better offer. So what was the fallout? Karingal was left to go back to the drawing board, although they are

sitting down with at least four quality candidates this week who have shown interest in the job, including one from left field. Rye FC announced last week that Jewell had been appointed chairman of selectors to support coach and friend Josh Moore. In other breaking news over the weekend, Red Hill will start the interview process to replace triple premiership coach Tony Blackford. Blackford told the club midway through the year of his intentions to stand down at season’s end.

Red Hill president Roger Siverson confirmed that interviews had been lined up this week for likely candidates. Crib Point is looking for a coach too after Brad Arnold announced his resignation at the club’s vote count night. In Peninsula Division, outside of Karingal, Langwarrin is interviewing for its top job, although it is understood Brad Dredge still has a year to serve on his contract, while Mornington will announce its new coach on Tuesday or Wednesday this week.

Finals fever grips Langwarrin, Southern SOCCER

By Craig MacKenzie LANGWARRIN and Southern United switch into finals mode this week in preparation for Saturday’s crunch ties against Altona Magic and Calder United respectively. State 1 South-East champion Langwarrin finished its league campaign last weekend with a 3-2 loss away to Malvern City while Southern’s table-topping under-13s won 3-0 away to Bayside United. Langy squares off with State 1 North-West champion Altona Magic at JL Murphy Reserve, Port Melbourne, on Saturday afternoon for the right to claim the mantle of Victoria’s State 1 champion. Gus Macleod’s side goes into the clash without veteran striker Caleb Nicholes, first-choice keeper Robbie Acs, central midfield giant Mat “Yaya” Luak and classy central defender Kieron Kenny. Nicholes has retired after scoring against Malvern City in his final appearance, Acs is heading to Fiji for a family holiday, Luak is suspended and Kenny is injured. The Foster brothers are expected to come into the starting line-up with James in goal and Lewis in midfield. “We want to do well here even though it’s been a long season and we have achieved our main goal of winning the league,” said assistant coach Robert Mathieson. “To win this final would be the icing on the cake for both our players and supporters.” Southern hosts second-placed Calder United at Monterey Reserve on Saturday morning with the winner going directly into the Sunday 1 October Grand Final. Saturday’s loser faces a cut-throat preliminary final against the winner of the elimination final between Bayside and South Melbourne which finished third and fourth respectively. Southern has a full squad and expectations of success are high given that the side finished seven points clear of Calder and ace striker Rhys McKenna won the league’s Golden Boot award while fellow striker Candy Kilderry finished fourth. Southern coach Debbie Nichols is overseas and will miss the next few weeks but her assistant Emma Bracken will take charge of the finals campaign assisted by under-15s coach Aaron Myatt. Star Southern central defender Taylah Hennekam opened the scoring against Bayside last Saturday with an 18th minute free kick from 25 metres that gave Bayside keeper Ruby Dale no chance. Nine minutes into the second half classy Southern midfielder Ales-

Brilliant Beddows: Southern United left back Jess Beddows was in fine form last Saturday. Picture: John Punshon sandra Davis sent Talia Palmer clear down the left and Palmer surged into the penalty area before being bundled over. Referee Daniel Harvey immediately pointed to the spot and McKenna had no trouble converting. The goalscoring machine was at it again two minutes later running onto a pinpoint through ball from captain Sage Kirby and deftly angling the ball past advancing Dale for goal number 28 of a remarkable season. Southern’s under-15s lost 4-0 in the later match at Kingston Heath Soccer Complex while the under18s lost 3-0. The seniors celebrated their fourth straight win by beating Bayside 1-0 with Courtney Heuston striking the decisive blow from close range in the 38th minute. A match highlight was the performance of Southern’s defence. Goalkeeper Tina Fonua was well supported by right back Milla Jowett and central defensive pairing

Lisa Fonua and Mikhaila Bowden while left back Jess Beddows turned in an outstanding display. Mornington ended its State 1 South-East league campaign with a 1-0 away win against nemesis Morwell Pegasus on Saturday which meant Adam Jamieson’s men finished second a point behind Langy. Keegan Ziada’s first goal for the club came in the first half and followed good lead-up play by Ryan Paczkowski and Sammy Orritt. Peninsula Strikers couldn’t escape the drop from State 2 South-East last weekend, going down 6-3 away to Mazenod United despite leading 3-1 after 31 minutes. Sam Scott (2) and Josh Vega scored for Strikers while Anthony Hammer (2), Nick D’Angelo, Jayson Gucciardo, Vicente Vasquez and Adrian D’Ortenzio scored for Mazenod. Three points wouldn’t have saved Strikers as Doncaster Rovers surprised home team Berwick City by winning 3-2.

Bottom side Seaford United already had its fate sealed and finished a disappointing season with a 5-1 away loss to Beaumaris on Saturday. Two days earlier Frankston Pines finished their league campaign with a 0-0 draw against North Caulfield at Knox Regional Centre cementing their State 2 status. Skye United fell at the final hurdle losing its State 3 South-East promotion showdown 2-0 at home to Brandon Park in front of a bumper crowd on Saturday. Skye keeper Jonathan Crook was more active than his Brandon Park counterpart Josh Green in the early exchanges but Green was forced to parry a Jason Nowakowksi strike in the 14th minute following a superb cross from the left by Skye’s English import Jacob Scotte-Hatherly. In the 34th minute Hamlet Armenian set up Matty Durand on the left of the area but the rangy Brandon Park striker blasted his left foot shot well over. Five minutes later Green pulled off the save of the match racing off his line to smother Daniel Attard’s attempt after the Skye striker had been played in by Mark O’Connor. Armenian got free down the left in the 41st minute and his cross was met by a spectacular diving header from Maxim Avram which flashed just wide of the upright. A pivotal moment in this contest came just before half-time when a jinking run by Wumjock Jock ended with a neat pass to Attard who controlled the ball with his first touch then hammered it past Green into the back of the net only to be ruled offside. A photograph taken from the Football Chaos video of the match highlights the controversial nature of the decision. A Scotte-Hatherly cross from the right in the 56th minute was headed straight at Green by Marcus Collier and a minute later Collier volleyed over from inside the area. An Attard header put Nowakowski into a one-on-one with Green in the 64th minute but a poor finish allowed the Brandon Park keeper to dive down and gather. The deadlock was broken three minutes later when Crook couldn’t make contact with a corner to the back post and Kegham Aminian struck the ball in from point-blank range. It was game over in the 79th minute when an Armenian cross from the left was met by a teammate whose first time shot struck the upright and rebounded to substitute Daniel Eksiyan who tucked it away to complete the scoreline. A feature of the contest was the impressive performance of veteran

Brandon Park left back Vinnie Bontemps who was rarely challenged and was allowed to dictate terms throughout. Baxter farewelled senior coach Roy Kilner with a 2-1 home win over Endeavour United in their State 4 South clash on Saturday. The visitors went ahead after nine minutes when Sasho Ancevski converted from the penalty spot but Mark Pagliarulo equalised in style in the 35th minute. The Scottish striker beat two opponents before unleashing a longrange strike that went in off the underside of the bar. Big Dan Disseldorp scored the sealer before the break and Baxter ran out a deserved winner. Rosebud Heart could not fashion a similar send-off for coach Scott Morrison and was thumped 7-0 by Monash Uni at Truemans Road Reserve last weekend. Heart was forced to make four changes to an already depleted line-up and the more experienced Monash side led 1-0 at the interval and took charge in the second half. “It’s been a long tough season with everything that could go wrong for us going wrong,” said Morrison. “We had injury after injury but I can’t fault the boys at all because they matched it with pretty much everyone and were always going to be safe from relegation.” Somerville Eagles signed off on their inaugural State 5 South season with a 1-0 loss to Lyndale United at Somerville Secondary College on Saturday. Somerville’s Eric Manahong was red carded midway through the second half and James Iasanc notched the winner in the 80th minute. “I’m really proud of the club to have started from scratch and to have fielded three senior men’s sides, a women’s side and three junior sides,” said senior coach Zach Peddersen. “We have a great platform on which to build next season and we’ll be looking to bring in the right coaches and players to take us forward.” Peddersen will return to his role as technical director while assistant coach Paul Morgan is stepping down so the club is on the lookout for a senior coach for 2018. This weekend’s games: This weekend’s games: SATURDAY 10am Southern Utd v Calder United (Under-13 NPLW Qualifying Final at Monterey Reserve). SATURDAY 3.30pm: Langwarrin v Altona Magic (State 1 Final at JL Murphy Reserve).

Riders gear up to climb Arthurs Seat By Ben Triandafillou THE Mornington Peninsula is set to come alive with hundreds of mountain bikers this October when the 2017 Red Hill Gravity Enduro takes to the trails of Arthurs Seat. The Red Hill Gravity Enduro presented by Mercedes-Benz Mornington will be held on October 7-8 at Hillview Community Reserve, Boundary Rd Dromana. The two-day event sold out of entries within weeks, with numbers increasing from 190 to 250 participants in just its second year. Red Hill Riders Mountain Bike Club president Terence Toh credits the rise of the Gravity Enduro discipline internationally to the event’s popularity. “The Red Hill Gravity Enduro is a truly unique event on the Australian calendar,” Toh said. “The format is physically challenging for competitors who will climb to the summit of Arthurs Seat unassisted by shuttles, before racing downhill through various timed special stages of the course.” “With Australia’s Sam Hill ranked no. 1 in the elite men’s Enduro World Series, the gravity discipline at home is really starting to take off.” Over 66 junior competitors in the under-15, under-17 and under-19 age categories have registered,

showcasing the growth of young talent in the sport. The under-17 Mountain Bike Australia Gravity Enduro National Series winner Jack Hewish will compete on the peninsula but is set to be challenged by Mt Martha’s Louis Tancredi who took out the under-17 event last year. “He was in my race last year where I was able to beat him so hopefully I can do it again,” Tancredi said. “I’ve improved a bit but he’s probably improved more as he was able to win the national series.” The Padua College student usually competes in downhill events but rides in the Red Hill enduro event to improve his fitness and take to his local track. Tancredi began riding about four years ago, joining his older brother Nick Tancredi at the Red Hill Riders Mountain Bike Club, and has noticed a major growth in junior participation. “The number of juniors at the club has grown so much,” he said. “Ever since the park opened up the number has probably quadrupled.” “You didn’t really see too many younger kids at the start but when the park opened up to the public about two years ago, more and more people have joined because they’ve heard about the great tracks.” The club is expecting an estimated 500 people to travel to the region for the weekend of the Red Hill Gravity Enduro.

Mt Eliza flood footy grand finals

Midweek tennis starts up for junior talent THE Peninsula Tennis Leagues will soon provide junior tennis players with an alternative midweek competition as it gets set to start in the first week of Term 4. The Peninsula Tennis Leagues, which had a sign-up day last Saturday, hopes to create a supplement competition from the usual Saturday morning league. Hosted by Better Tennis at the Frankston Tennis Club, the 13 league divisions will be spread across weeknights from Monday to Thursday starting at 4.30pm. Better Tennis coach, Steve Foot, said the Peninsula Tennis Leagues aren’t aiming to take over the Saturday competition but rather create another night for keen tennis players to play matches. “It’s an extra competition for the juniors who can’t play Saturday morning competition due to

other commitments as well as for the players who just want to play extra matches during the week,” he said. The leagues will range from the standard of Les Moss, Loretta Thrupp and section one through to a green ball competition for the younger juniors. Unlike Saturday morning competition, the Peninsula Tennis Leagues is individually based rather than team based. Each junior player will get to play a doubles match, with a new partner each week, and a singles match, played against their doubles partner of that week. The competition is open to tennis players 21 and under. If you’re interested or would like extra information email info@bettertennis.com.au or call Brad Grose on 0410 483 669.

THE Frankston District Junior Football League grand finals were flooded with red and blue on Sunday 3 September as Mt Eliza prepared 10 teams for the premierships. Mt Eliza Football Club president Fraser Bayne said that even though the club focuses on enjoyment, participation and development, it was a fantastic achievement to have 10 teams through to the FDJFL grand finals as well as an under-17s team through to the South East Juniors grand final. “It’s been a good year for the club,” Bayne said. “It’s a great result and we did really well to have an initial 16 teams through to the finals. “We were also able to have two Mt Eliza girls’ teams playing each other in the under-15s grand final as well as a girls’ team in the under-18s grand final. “It really shows the growth the club has had in women’s football.” FDJFL grand final winners were:
