Helping hand for hospital Brodie Cowburn brodie@baysidenews.com.au FRANKSTON Hospital could be set to receive a major facelift, after the state Labor government promised $562 million for its ongoing development should the party be re-elected in November.

Plans for the hospital include a new 11-storey building housing 120 new hospital beds, two operating theatres, and 13 emergency department beds. Premier Daniel Andrews visited the hospital on 10 September to announce that a re-elected state Labor government would deliver on the project.

“We said we’d build a bigger emergency department at Frankston Hospital and we have, but there’s more to do,” Mr Andrews said. “Only Labor will transform Frankston Hospital to give the growing number of young mums and families the world class healthcare they can rely on.” Work on the proposed project will

start in 2020, and is projected to finish in 2024. Twelve new short stay emergency beds were recently opened at the hospital and work is underway on a crisis hub for the emergency mental health care centre. Two levels of the 11-storey hospital building will be used for mental health services.

A new maternity ward, obstetrics ward, women’s clinic, paediatric ward, oncology ward, and special care nursery are also among the planned additions to the hospital. Early plans for the new building show the 11-storey building split into two towers. Continued page 6

Vandals target Seaford school A CROWDFUNDING campaign is underway to help raise funds to replace a teepee destroyed by vandals at Nepean School for students with disabilities. The teepee was burnt down at the Seaford school earlier this month, and was valued at $12,000. Fire crews and police were called to the fire at the Nepean School in Klauer Street at 10pm, Monday 3 September. They were told youths had entered the school grounds and set fire to the large teepee in the playground area. Dunkley MP Chris Crewther spoke in parliament about the fire. “Devastatingly very recently a group of vandals entered the school at set fire to a teepee located in the playground, causing $12,000 worth of damage. The teepee is used as a central gathering place for students, and was completely destroyed by the fire. The kids, the school community, and the wider community are absolutely devastated by what occurred,” Mr Crewther said. “It saddens me that a school like Nepean School which does so much to support children with a disability in Dunkley would be targeted in this way. That’s why in partnership with Frankston Community Noticeboard, I’ve set up a gofundme page to raise funds to replace their teepee.” Frankston CIU is keen to speak to anyone who may have seen any suspicious activity in the area that night. They have released CCTV images of youths who may be able to assist with their inquiries. Leading Senior Constable Melissa Seach urges anyone with information to contact Crime Stoppers 1800 333 000 or submit a confidential crime report at crimestoppersvic.com.au The crowdfunding page can be found at gofundme.com/teepee4nepean

Brodie Cowburn brodie@baysidenews.com.au THE Victorian Liberals have pledged to spend over $30 million to build a multi-storey car park at Frankston train station if they win the November state election. Leader of the opposition Matthew Guy MP and Michael Lamb visited Frankston station to announce the election promise, which could provide 450 new carparks to commuters using the station. “I have a plan for a new car park at Frankston Station and to electrify the train line to Baxter, while Daniel Andrews is talking about a $70 billion tunnel to Broadmeadows sometime after 2050,” Mr Guy said. “The choice is clear, under the Liberals you’ll get a multi storey car park at Frankston station.” Last week the Liberal government reaffirmed their commitment to electrify and duplicate the Frankston train line to Baxter. The new car park is planned to be free for commuters to use. A 22 January 2015 media release from the Premier’s office outlined the development of a “fast-tracked master plan” for Frankston station, which would include planning for “a new retail and café strip and multilevel car park”. Investment from the state government has not yet been used for a multi-level car park project. A proposal to ask Premier Daniel

“As I knock on doors and speak to residents in Frankston, time and time again the lack of parking at the station is brought up. We’re going to fix that.”

Volunteers celebrate 10 years of service WHILE it’s more common to see CFA volunteers fighting fires in the bush, their Coast Guard counterparts are also around to keep boaties safe when there’s smoke on the water. This year, the Coast Guard volunteers are celebrating 10 years of protecting bays and waterways on the water, and by supporting their CFA land-based firefighting counterparts. The Coast Guard in Victoria began in 1961, with volunteers having the choice of training in marine firefighting for the past decade. Most flotillas are now also CFA brigades, with volunteers trained and prepared to battle all water-based incidents. Volunteers complete a marine firefighting course run by the CFA, primarily based on structural firefighting training but adapted to fit the marine environment. Coast Guard Frankston Brigade members recently recognised inau-

gural members with 10-year badges. They are Squadron Commodore Mark Bainbridge, Marcus Grinblat, Sheena Grinblat, Peter Swan, Jean Brake and Bryan Phelan. John Hall and Jim Teika also received 10-year awards but were not at the ceremony. Volunteers from several flotillas also received emergency service medals for the efforts during the Black Saturday fires. Coast Guard Frankston Brigade Captain Les Ingram said volunteers were called to a “surprisingly diverse range of incidents – and it’s getting busier every year”. As with their land-based CFA colleagues, Coast Guard volunteers become busier as the weather gets warmer. “Once the season starts and the fish start biting we can have the pager going off on a daily basis,” Captain Ingram said. The fully-volunteer brigade covers

all aspects of marine safety, including search and rescue, breakdowns, sinking boats, boat fires, missing swimmers and people knocked overboard. The brigades carry fire pumps and ancillary equipment on their boats, which are about to be upgraded under a new government funding program. If needed, the Coast Guard can take CFA members to marine fires and the trained Coast Guard volunteers can also add to the CFA’s surge capacity and respond to major disasters on land. They also take part in training with land-based CFA crews. Traditionally, Coast Guard brigades have been predominantly male, but at Frankston a recent recruitment campaign led to six new female volunteers among 15 recruits. The season will officially kick off with the blessing of the brigade’s fleet on 28 October. Stephen Taylor

PSOs for ‘crime hotspot’ station Brodie Cowburn brodie@baysidenews.com.au THE Victorian coalition have made an election promise to expand the Protective Services Officers program to provide additional PSOs to Frankston and Mordialloc train stations between 10am and 6pm. Up to 20 stations identified as “daytime crime hotspots” will receive 100 additional transit PSOs on a new dayshift roster if the Liberal Nationals win the November state

election. “A Liberal Nationals Government will make Victoria safer. We are going to put more police on the beat and more PSOs at train stations. If we are going to encourage more people to use more public transport then we need to make sure users are safe and feel safe,” Leader of the opposition Matthew Guy MP said. Frankston Liberal candidate Michael Lamb, a Police Senior Sergeant, said that he has “dedicated my entire career to keeping people safe and locking away criminals and

I am passionate about our community, which is why I’m fighting hard to get more local funding for frontline police and PSOs.” Frankston has been a political battleground recently, with a number of election promises made in the last week aiming to swing voters. The Premier, leader of the opposition, and Prime Minister have visited the region in the last two weeks. The seat of Frankston is one of the most marginal in the state, and was decided by just 336 votes at the last state election.

UNEXPECTED erosion has caused delays and a change in engineers’ plans to protect crumbling cliffs at Mt Martha North beach. The use of a geotextile sand tube was abandoned after several storms in June and July. Instead, the wall designed to prevent further erosion at the base of the cliff will be built solely using geotextile blankets and rocks. Sand will still be imported from the beach north of the Balcombe Estuary “to top up the beach and inhibit undermining of the [cliff] toe”, according to the Department of Environment, Land, Water and Planning. Beach box owners have been told the beach is closed and they cannot repair their property - on Crown Land leased through Mornington Peninsula Shire while the cliff works are underway. Many of the beach boxes are either sagging or leaning and some have stumps that are hanging above ground. Several have been demolished. However, the $880,000 works currently underway and expected to be completed this month, are only seen as a temporary solution to erosion problems at the beach. Consultants Water Technology has been hired to assess the four long term solutions identified in its 2017 report which warned that the continued erosion could eventually effect the Esplanade above Mt Martha North Beach (“Beach repairs could cost $4m” The News 30/10/17). The report recommended removing

all boat sheds at Mt Martha north unless action was taken to stop further erosion of the cliff and beach. Options contained in the report include building rock walls and groynes across the beach or an offshore breakwater to slow the loss of thousands of cubic metres of sand needed to “renourish” the beach. “An analysis of the four engineering recommendations will assess the environmental, social, technical and cost of each option, to determine which are the most feasible to model in detail,” the latest “stakeholder update” issued by the DELWP states. “Following a series of storms and persistent northerly and north-westerly winds in June and July, erosion on the beach was so severe that clay and bedrock were exposed. This resulted in an amendment to the design, because the geotextile sand tube could not be placed at the more southerly end as the sand would have washed away with the tides,” the update stated. “This section has instead been constructed solely of rock and geotextile. It is possible that only rock will be encapsulated in the geotextile in the northerly section as well.” “Tension cracks” in the cliff had necessitated “emergency trimming of the cliff face” in late August. “These cracks were deemed at risk of collapse during placement of the rocks if not manually removed. “Traditional Owner representatives were on site to inspect the removed material for cultural heritage values, but nothing of significance was identified. The works were completed under supervision of geotechnical engineers.”

Election pledge for hospital Continued from page 1 Frankston mayor Cr Colin Hampton expressed his delight at the “fantastic outcome” for residents in the municipality. “With the health and wellbeing sector being a major employer for our city, we’re delighted to have continued investments in the provision of high quality and vital healthcare services at Frankston Hospital,” Cr Hampton said. Council has been supporting the relocation of the Frankston Tennis Club in order to accommodate the expansion of the hospital. The club currently occupies the crown land

required for the project. “To ensure this 127 year old club’s rich history remains alive and well, Council has developed plans for a proposed new multisport complex at Centenary Park in Langwarrin,” Cr Hampton said. “We have already committed $11 million towards delivering the project, but we still need state and federal governments to contribute an equal share which will give Frankston Tennis Club and Bayside Gymnastics Club a new home.”

WORKS on pedestrian operated lights on Ballarto Road in front of Skye Primary School are set to begin within weeks. Carrum MP Sonya Kilkenny was recently joined by Minister for Roads and Road Safety Luke Donnellan to unveil designs for the new crossing. The new pedestrian operated lights will replace the existing supervised school crossing and include technology to extend or reduce crossing time for pedestrians. “Skye Primary has told us they need a safer school crossing and we’ve listened, investing in the pedestrian lights this school community needs,” Ms Kilkenny said.

“We’re investing in these lights to boost safety for the hundreds of students, parents and teachers that cross busy Ballarto Road every day.” The $600,000 project is part of the state government’s $23.9 million investment into improving road safety around schools. Skye Primary School is one of the first schools to receive funding from the investment. The driveway to the school’s staff carpark will also be resurfaced as part of the project. The new lights are expected to be switched on before the start of the 2019 school year.

We shall clean on the beaches: Local kids get involved to help clean up Mordialloc beaches. Picture: Supplied

Big beach clean up effort Brodie Cowburn brodie@baysidenews.com.au THE inaugural ‘Mordialloc Beach Clean Up Day’ took place this Sunday 9 September, bringing together locals to help rid Mordialloc beach of waste. Mordialloc MP Tim Richardson was among the supporters of the initiative, which is aiming to create an annual event of cleaning up the beach. “I applaud the great work of the Mordialloc community in working together to protect our wonderful foreshore. It is a key part of our close knit community,” Mr Richardson said. “Whenever I can, I spend time with my partner Lauren, our young daughter Paisley, and our dogs, walking along the beachfront. It is an important part of our lives in Mordialloc.” Event co-creator Paul Mawdsley said that

it was important to “protect and nurture” the beach, which is an “important part of our local community”. “Our company, Greenbox Storage, is placing a large green bin at the beach on the day and giving out gloves and environmentally friendly rubbish collection bags, which have been kindly donated by Bunnings Keysborough and Clean Up Australia, to everyone who comes along so they can take part in the beach clean up,” Mr Mawdsley said. “By doing the clean up and involving the whole community, we can show people how much rubbish there is on our local beaches, how much gets washed up, the amount of microplastics in the ocean and how important it is to clean it up. “The foreshore should be enjoyed by everyone and the only way we can fully appreciate it is if we keep it clean.”

BMX club claims a defib Brodie Cowburn brodie@baysidenews.com.au FRANKSTON BMX Club is among the latest sporting clubs to receive a defibrillator and training package from the state government as part of the Defibrillators for Sporting Clubs and Facilities Program. 300 successful applicants were chosen across the state, with Carrum Rowing Club, and Chelsea District Basketball Association among the institutions picked. Carrum MP Sonya Kilkenny today announced that sporting clubs in her electorate were chosen to receive the packages. “We here in Carrum electorate are proud of our local sports clubs and their efforts to make their sports more safe and enjoyable for all,” Ms Kilkenny said “In a life threatening sudden cardiac arrest every second counts, and bystanders play a vital role because the chance of surviving a cardiac arrest decreases by 10 percent every minute that passes without defibrillation. “This program funded by the Andrews Government helps local clubs implement a sports medical plan, so they are prepared to act fast in an emergency.” The Heart Foundation estimates that 25,000 people suffer a cardiac arrest outside of hospital in Australia every year, with just a 10 percent survival rate. In addition to the defibrillator and training, six years of essential maintenance are also included in the program.

NEWS DESK Votes for boats: Kingston Council voted to consider heritage options for Pompei’s landing in Mordialloc.

Push for heritage at Pompei’s landing Brodie Cowburn brodie@baysidenews.com.au KINGSTON Council has agreed to attempt to engage an independent consultant to determine whether “a State heritage registration or local Heritage Overlay” for Pompei Boatshed would likely be successful. The motion was carried at the 27 August public council meeting, in which councillors Rosemary West, David Eden, and Georgina Oxley voted in favour, and the remainder of council abstained. Cr West brought forward the notice of motion, telling council that “the local village boatworks has been an essential part of that fishing village atmosphere [at Mordialloc]. Everyone who goes through Mordialloc, everybody who lives here, everybody really cares about this. We as a community would be so much poorer if we allow it to go.” “I can’t comment on the officer recommendation because it’s in confidence, but I can say that the officer recommendation follows the existing position, which is that when council’s existing heritage overlay was adopted in 2001, no heritage overlay was placed on the Pompei boatshed. When the Mordialloc structure plan was adopted,

basically the decision was made to allow that building to be rezoned for four storey development. “In a sense I think that those two decisions went together, the decision to rezone for development and the decision not to proceed with a heritage overlay.” The boatyard is on crown land, which was sold in December 2017 for $2.85 million. Council now has an application for a four storey apartment building with 13 units on the site. A heritage overlay would ensure that a planning permit is required to subdivide or consolidate land, demolish or remove a building, construct a building, externally alter a building, construct or carry out works, construct or display a sign, or externally paint an unpainted surface. A group titled ‘Save Pompei’s Landing” has been lobbying to get the area heritage listed by Heritage Victoria to protect it from any future changes. The group is led by Leon Pompei, son of ‘Mr Mordialloc’ Jack Pompei. An application was recently made to have the area heritage listed by the Heritage Council of Victoria, but a recommendation report from executive director Steven Avery recommended that “the place NOT

be included in the Victorian Heritage Register”. Instead, it was recommended that the Heritage Council “refer the recommendation to the City of Kingston for inclusion of the place in the local Heritage Overlay”, the reason being that “the information presented in this report demonstrates that Pompei’s Marine Boat Works and Landing may be of potential local significance, rather than state level significance.” The ‘Save Pompei’s Landing’ group held a meeting on 1 September, where it was decided that they should submit an application objecting to the executive director’s recommendations. As part of the motion carried at the Kingston council meeting it was also decided that “if the heritage consultant doesn’t believe such an application would be successful” then no further action would be taken. In February 2018 an agreement was made for Leon Pompei to sign a nine year lease on the land at a rate of $104 per annum after a lengthy legal battle with council. Council’s correspondence with Heritage Victoria on the heritage listing of Pompei Boatshed was decided in the confidential section of the 27 August public meeting.

Woman flees across freeway

A WOMAN on the run after she and her male friend crashed a stolen car on the Frankston Freeway last week ran across eight lanes of traffic to escape police causing two cars to collide. Detective Senior Constable Ryan Collins, of Frankston CIU, said the couple was driving a stolen Nissan Pulsar towards Carrum Downs when they left the road and ran into a fence. Both jumped out and ran off towards the Eastlink turnoff, with other motorists reporting the incident to triple zero. Police set up a cordon to corral them but the woman, 31, allegedly ran off and it was only “dumb luck” which saved her from being run down on the freeway, Detective Collins said. When police arrested the Doveton woman, and the 21-year-old man, of no fixed address, they allegedly found stolen property in the car. The pair was charged with multiple counts of theft, including theft of alcohol from a BWS store. The man was charged with petrol drive offs and the woman with conduct endangering life. The stolen Nissan was extensively damaged and the two cars which collided on the freeway while attempting to avoid her were said to be moderately damaged. The pair faced Frankston Magistrates’ Court last week and was further remanded to appear on 24 September.

Surfer rescues girl at Pt Leo

Fire takes hold

THREE suspects were seen trying to stamp out flames near a children’s playground at the Escarpment reserve, Frankston, 7.20pm, Wednesday 5 September. CFA crews which arrived to fight the small blaze found a soft drink bottle containing accelerant at the scene. Anyone with information is urged to contact Crime Stoppers 1800 333 000 or submit a confidential crime report at crimestoppersvic.com.au

AN experienced Pt Leo surfer paddled out to rescue a teenage girl stranded in choppy and gusty conditions last week. Hastings police Sergeant John Cannon said the girl, 18, got into trouble on her board at popular break “Suicides” just north of the Pt Leo Lifesaving Club, 12.45pm, Tuesday 11 September. She had been surfing with a friend when they got into difficulties in the strong north wind and current and was exhausted. With conditions deteriorating, her companion managed to paddle ashore and alert authorities. The girl was unable to follow him. First Constable Daniel Crisp, of Hastings police, said the police helicopter arrived and did a fly over before reconfiguring for a winch rescue. As it hovered over the girl, and with up to 10 paramedics and ambulance crews waiting on the shore, the local surfer, 41, took the initiative. “He offered to help,” Constable Crisp said. “He made an active decision to go and get the girl and bring her in. He did what he could to help.” The hero didn’t wait around for pats on the back. “When he brought her in he walked off without giving his name, but I’m sure he was a local man,” Constable Crisp said. The girl was taken by ambulance to Frankston Hospital suffering hypothermia.

Assault on trail

A MAN assaulted on the Peninsula Link Trail last week was later taken to The Alfred Hospital with head injuries. The assault occurred at 3.30am, Monday 10 September near Skye Road, Langwarrin. The 33-year-old Frankston man was said to be in a stable condition, Wednesday.

Telephone scam targets southern suburbs A TELEPHONE scam targeting the southern suburbs has prompted police to warn residents to be wary. People have contacted police to say they have received a phone call from a man claiming to be from the Australian Tax Office saying they have an outstanding tax debt. The caller says an arrest warrant is due over the unpaid tax debt and if they don’t pay they will be arrested. He then directs the victim to attend a specific ATM and deposit

cash in a nominated bank account. For information on the latest scams police suggest you visit scamwatch.com.au To check if a call, email or SMS is from the ATO call 1800 008 540 to confirm.

Sewage flows to a Mt Eliza beach Stephen Taylor steve@mpnews.com.au SOUTH East Water crews were busy last week trying to repair a broken pipe which sent raw sewage cascading down the Earimil Steps escarpment into Earimil Creek. Mt Eliza resident Des Berry said he found a waterfall (“or should that be effluent fall”) of raw sewage on his regular beach walk Wednesday morning, 12 September, which flowed to the beach. “The dirty brown and very smelly discharge emanated from a broken sewage main at the top of the cliff near the Earimil lookout,” he said. “At the north end of Ranelagh beach [the] South East Water pumping station receives the sewage effluent from most of Mt Eliza. “Large pumps pump the water to the south of Ranelagh beach, then up the Earimil lookout steps to discharge into the main sewerage pipe and treatment plant then on to the ocean outfall into Bass Strait [at Gunnamatta].” Mr Berry, a member of the Mt Eliza Association for Environmental Care, said the effluent flowed when the sewage discharge pump was turned on. “However, the discharge rate is very high and I do not know how long it has been discharging,” he said. “The odour is very strong and there is significant residue of raw sewage embedded in the creek bottom down to the beach and into the bay. “I contacted the emergency call line for South East Water and asked them to turn off the pump. A man arrived 30 minutes later and said he was calling

out the crew to dam the creek at the beach and pump out the creek. “It is now too late and a significant amount of raw sewage remains in the creek and the sand on the foreshore.” South East Water’s manager network delivery John Hribar said the company “responded immediately to contain the spill and minimise any environmental impact”. He said the affected pipe connects to a pumping station servicing the area between Ballar and Earimil creeks, west of Nepean Highway. “The EPA, Melbourne Water and Mornington Peninsula Shire Council were notified and advisory signs and markers were placed in several locations in the area, restricting community access,” he said. “We encourage the community to be mindful of the temporary access restrictions.” Mr Hribar said workmen had repaired the failed pipe section and put in place an “ongoing monitoring program to assess the environmental impact”. “A thorough clean-up of the spill point is continuing and we apologise to the community for the spill and any inconvenience it has caused.” EPA manager southern metro Marleen Mathias said EPA officers had arranged with South East Water to have signs erected “alerting the community and advising them of the issue”. Warnings were also posted on the EPA’s Yarra and Bay websites. “South East Water is sampling at key points along the creek to assess the impact and the EPA will work with them to ensure public safety,” Mr Rees said.

THEY might be among the most common animals in our backyards, but they are also among the least seen. Microbat expert Dr Casey Visintin will reveal much about these flying animals during a talk at the Australian Garden Auditorium, Cranbourne Gardens. Microbats are among the most common animals in our backyards and in bushland. They come out at night to feed on insects. Children are much more likely to hear their high-pitched squeaks at night than adults. Microbats use echo-location (sonar) to navigate and hunt and consume huge numbers of insects each night, including mosquitoes and other pest insects. Through the day they roost in tree hollows or crevices in tree bark. Dr Visintin will talk about these important animals and there will be an opportunity to see one or two living microbats up close. This lecture is in school holidays so children are welcome to bring along parents and grandparents. Bookings: www.rbgfriendscranbourne.org.au. Cost (including refreshments): members $20; nonmembers $25; students $10. The Australian Garden Auditorium is at Cranbourne Gardens, corner Botanic Drive and Ballarto roads Cranbourne.

Mr A. Downward ‘indisposed’ after death of daughter Compiled by Brodie Cowburn MR. A. Downward,. M. L. A., is seriously indisposed at his residence, Mornington, and his medical adviser has enjoined complete rest. Last week Mr. Downard suffered a painful shock owing to the sudden death of his second daughter, Ethel, from heart trouble. *** A PUBLIC meeting of the residents of Seaford will be held this (Saturday) evening to consider the matter of selecting a school site. *** THE sale of Mr Stanley’s property at Bittern, advertised in last issue to take place on September 21st, will now be held on October 5th. Particulars will appear next issue. *** MISS Lillie M Tulloch has been appointed first assistant in the Frankston School, in place of Mis D. Keane, who has been appointed to a similar position at Clayton. *** THE usual monthly meeting of all the members of the Frankston Progress Association will be held at the Mechanics at 5pm on Friday, 27th Sep. *** SGT. W McMahon, who has been on the recruiting staff at Dandenong for some time, has resigned his position, and has leased the Flinders hotel at Flinders, which he takes over immediately. *** THE children of the Frankston School succeeded so well in their effort to help the Caulfield Hospital that they dispatched six boxes of miscellaneous

goods, including 61 dozen eggs. The Head Master, wishes to thank the parents for their generous cooperation. *** AN old resident in the person of Mrs Samuel Sherlock, passed peacefully away at the residence of her daughter, Mrs G. W. Baxter, on Monday last at the ripe old age of 85 years. Deceased, was the relict of, the late Samuel Sherlock, of Mornington, and was the mother of Mr. Andrew Sherlock, Capt Samuel Sherlock, Mrs G. W. Baxter, Mrs Hugh Cameron, and the late Mrs W. R. Frame. The funeral took place on Wednesday, the mortal remains being laid to rest in the Frankston cemetery. The mortuary arrangements were carried out by Mr H.

success. A lengthy programme was carried through, followed by a coffee supper. *** The Great Ocean Road. The Trust which is controlling this movement, have now made an actual start by employing a survey party on the section which it is proposed to take in hand first, viz. Cape Patten to Lorne (a distance of 18 miles.) The whole road when completed is to connect up Warrnambool and Barwon Heads (14 miles from Geelong) by means of a road running as near to the ocean as the surveyors consider practicable. Some portions of road which already exist here and there will be availed of, and other portions have been taken over by the Country Roads Board, but there still remain about 100 miles to be constucted, the estimated cost of which is £150,000 It is proposed to raise this money by voluntary subscriptions. The road is to be a permanent and lasting memorial to all Victorian soldiers with memorial bridges over the various streams so that everyone who drives along this road will be reminded of the brave men who defended our shores. Every position in connection with the construction of the road is to be first offered o the physically fit and suitable returned soldiers through the Repatriation Department and it is anticipated that when the war is over a large number of suitable men will be returning. The five men who are now at work in connection with the survey are all

returned soldiers, and were engaged through the Repatriation Department. On arrival at Apollo Bay (the nearest town at present to their work) a public welcome was accorded to them in the public hall by 300 of the residents, who filed the building to the doors. Warrant Officer Hassent, a capable and experienced surveyor who is in charge of the party, thanked the residents for their very cordial and enthusiastic welcome and said they were out to prove that returned soldiers were not afraid of work, and that they did not wish to “sponge “on the Country. A resident of Cape Patten (Mr Ramsden) has lent the party a house, rent free, and altogether the men are delighted with their work and with their congenial surroundings so close to the ocean. The Great Ocean Road Trust propose to have a Cinema picture 2000 feet long taken at Xmas time, and featuring at the principal beauty spots on the ocean route between Barwon Heads and Warrnambool including waterfalls and fern gullies at Lorne, the Loch Ard Gorge and the Blow Hole at Port Campbell, the Bay of Islands at Petersborough, surf bathing at Torquay, motor boating at Barwon Heads, fishing at Anglesea and Airey’s Inlet. etc. The cost of the picture is estimated at £150 is afterwards proposed to show it all over Australia. *** From the pages of the Mornington Standard, 21 September 1918

THE news of the sudden death of Mr Charles W. Murray on Friday evening, September 13th, came as a shock to his many friends, as although he had been suffering for some time from the effects of a paralytic stroke, his health seemed to be improving and no one imagined the end was so near. Deceased, who was a baker by trade, bad been in business at Langwarrin, Lilydale, Maldon and West Australia, and it was at the latter place that he had the stroke that so vitally undermined his constitution. From this he recovered sufficiently to be enabled to undertake the journey back here, and since arriving a few months ago had seemed to improve. During his residence here the deceased had filled many honorary public positions, such as superintendent of the Methodist Sunday School, President and Hon. Sec. Langwarrin Progress Association, and Correspondent of the State School Committee. The funeral took place on Sunday afternoon and was largely attended, part of the burial service bing held at the Methodist church. Deceased who was 53 years of age, leaves a widow, one son and two daughters to mourn their great loss. *** THE anniversary concert of the Methodist Sunday School, held at the church on Monday evening, September 16th, attracted a very large attendance. The weather was all that could he desired, and this, with the pleasure that is associated with children performers made the event a decideIy

After the siren score means Pines delight DIVISION ONE

By Brodie Cowburn PINES have scored with a kick after the siren to claim a thrilling encounter with Sorrento and take out the 2018 MPNFL Division One Premiership in one of the greatest games in local football history. There was plenty of pregame drama before a ball was even bounced, as Chris Dawes was surprisingly named in the side despite an injury last week and Beau Hendry was named after narrowly escaping suspension during the week. James Hallahan kicked the first goal of the afternoon for the Sharks, which was badly needed to settle nerves. Both teams had showed nerves by hitting the post from easy position before the captain’s opening goal. Daniel Grant was then handed a lucky 50m penalty to kick Sorrento’s second and extend their lead. Nick Corp kicked Sorrento’s third unanswered goal from out of nowhere, rushing a snap from a pack situation to inflict more misery on the Pythons. The quick starting Sharks were surprising to watch given their lackluster starts to matches in the latter half of the season. Leigh Poholke soon added another to put the Sharks 27 points ahead late in the first term. The second quarter started poorly for Pines, as Leigh Poholke notched another goal for the Sharks less than 30 seconds into the second term. Aaron Edwards finally broke the Pines’ goal drought when he converted his set shot at goal, but the Pythons still trailed by four goals. Edwards quickly added another and the Pines were starting to work their way back into contention after their nervy start. A strong run and another Aaron Edwards goal took the Pines within a point before Perry Lewis Smith put them in front. Sorrento struck first blood in the second half and took back the lead, with the Hallahan brothers starting to influence the game in a major way. Just as Sorrento were starting to take

control, Pines stunned their opponents with a brilliant run of momentum. Tom McDermott came alive, kicking three straight goals to hand his side the lead on the stroke of three-quarter time and send the Pines fans into a frenzy. Brendan Barfoot booted an early goal in the final term to stretch the Pythons’ lead to 11. Leigh Poholke struck back to put Sorrento within 5 points, before Marcus Gardner put Sorrento in front with ten minutes to play. Just as Sorrento got their noses in front, the lead changed hands again when Shaun White was handed a downfield free kick and converted his shot. Controversy struck when Guy Hendry appeared to take a mark at centre half back, but was called play on. The resulting turnover saw the ball sent towards a waiting Leigh Poholke in the goalsquare, who put the Sharks up by a point with a little over five minutes to play. A behind soon saw the scores levelled, before Marcus Gardner turned hero again to dribble home a major with time ticking away. For every goal Sorrento scored though, Pines had an answer, as Nick Boswell thumped home a stunning goal from distance to square things up once again. With scores level, Aaron Ludewig took a mark inside fifty as the siren sounded. With a deafening crowd behind him, Ludewig slotted the most important behind in MPNFL history. His minor score clinched the game and the premiership for the Pythons. The game had a controversial build up after Pines ruckman Beau Hendry was sent to the tribunal during the week. Hendry was referred to the tribunal after he allegedly stomped on the head of Sorrento’s Luke Tapscott in the first final these sides played. The incident occurred following a fiery fracas in a game full of spotfire incidents. Hendry was found guilty and suspended for two weeks, ruling him out of the Grand Final. Pines made the decision to appeal, and Hendry was found not guilty on a technicality.

Mounties soar in junior finals MPJFL

By Ben Triandafillou THE Mt Martha Junior Football Club had a massive hand in the Mornington Peninsula Junior Football League grand finals which were held over the weekend of Saturday 8 September in Pearcedale. The Mounties relished the “perfect grand final atmosphere” over the two days, with five of their nine teams taking out their respective age-group grand finals. There were three sides from the Frankston District Junior Football League (Mt Eliza, Frankston Rovers and Seaford) that also added to the occasion, with Mt Eliza also managing to claim the grand final victory in the under-18s Girls grand final over Mt Martha. Mt Martha Junior Football Club president James Barrett said it couldn’t have been a better weekend for the 18 grand finals to take place. “It was brilliant football weather; the atmosphere was great, and it was a massive crowd with grand parents, friends and family all turning up to support and cheer on the juniors,” Barrett said. “The games were reasonably close and it was the first time for a lot of the girls to play in the grand finals.” Of the six Girls’ grand finals, Mt Martha had four sides competing,

with two of them scoring victories. Barrett believes the under-11s Girls’ side would have easily won the “best-dressed” award for the finals. “They were super excited to get out there, and every one of them had

their hair done up in black and red hairbands to support the club. It was fantastic.” Barrett said to have four sides make it through to the Girls’ grand finals was a credit to the system that they have in place at Mt Martha.

“It comes down to the programs we’ve got for training as well as offfield behaviour,” he said. “Overall the overarching key to the Girl’s program is to focus on their development and retention. We have about 120 girls in total so it would

be great to see them back here again for next season.” As for having the three FDJFL sides in the league, Barrett said it was great to have the added competition to contend with. “Mt Eliza is a fairly strong club and was a good adversary to have in the [under-18s Girls] league throughout the year,” he said. “More competition is always better.” Over the two days, the MPJFL grand final winners were: Under-11s Girls – Tyabb, Boys Navy – Red Hill and Boys White Dromana ; Under-12s Boys Navy – Mt Martha and Boys White Moorooduc; Under-13s Girls – Mt Martha, Boys White – Somerville and Boys Navy – Mt Martha; Under14s Boys White – Rosebud and Boys Navy - Rye; Under-15s Girls White – Pearcedale/Baxter, Girls Navy – Mt Martha and Boys - Beleura; Under16s Boys Navy – Mt Martha and Boys White - Dromana; Under- 17s Boys – Pearcedale/Baxter; Under18s Girls Navy – Mt Eliza and Girls White – Seaford.

History awaits young Southern stars SOCCER

By Craig MacKenzie SOUTHERN United will lay claim to having the best under-14 squad in Victoria if it wins next weekend’s grand final and records an historic second successive double. Last year the side coached by former Matilda and FFV Hall of Famer Deb Nichols and former Langwarrin, South Melbourne and Casey Comets keeper Emma Bracken won the under-13 NPLW championship and Grand Final. That cemented their status as the premier outfit in Victoria’s elite underage competition. This season the squad clinched the under-14 title in August and on Saturday defeated Victorian powerhouse South Melbourne 3-2 at Monterey Reserve in the under-14 semis to reach the 2018 grand final. Southern’s date with destiny arrives at 10am next Saturday at ABD Stadium in Broadmeadows against Calder United who defeated Bulleen 4-3 in last weekend’s other semi. For Calder it’s a shot at redemption having gone down 2-0 to Southern in last year’s grand final with goals from Taylah Hennekam and Candy Kilderry, who remain important cogs in Southern’s machine. Not only do the Southern girls have a chance to write themselves into the record books but they also are tasked with maintaining the club’s record of winning a Grand Final in every year of its existence having won the under-15 premiership in 2016 in the inaugural year of the NPLW competition. But Southern had to use a get-outof-jail card last Saturday after facing a setback in the 5th minute when Ivana Demaria broke quickly and was brought down inside the area. Demaria converted from the resultant penalty to make it 1-0. Southern equalised in the 20th minute from a long-range Alex Jones free kick which sailed over the head of South Melbourne keeper Anastacia Samaras and it was 1-1 at the interval. South Melbourne hit the front in the 46th minute through an Alessandra Davis own goal but Rhys McKenna capitalised on poor defending three minutes later to make it 2-2 from close range. Hennekam’s long-range strike six minutes from time settled the issue but what a battle this was. Nichols is acutely aware that Southern will need to perform at a

much higher level if it is to win next weekend. “Calder’s beaten us twice this season and we won the other game so it’s got to be a very up week for us if we’re going to go back-to-back,” said Nichols. “We’ve spoken about how they will probably watch a replay of last year’s grand final to drive home the point that they don’t want to feel that way again. “We’ll only train twice this week but we’ll work on being tighter at the back because we’re going to have to be.” Meanwhile Southern technical director Harry Chalkitis is conducting a review of the club’s onfield structure and plans to submit his findings and recommendations to the committee next week. A number of coaching positions need to be filled for next season with John Meads stepping down from his highly successful stint as under-12s coach to become more involved in the club’s Skill Acquisition Program. Former Skye United senior women’s reserve coach Ernie Cerda has

been linked with Southern as has Washington Castillo who coached Skye’s under-16 boys this season. In NPL2 news Langwarrin expects to select a senior assistant to Scott Miller this week. Expressions of interest closed last Friday and it’s believed that five candidates applied. Miller and technical director Stephen Fisher will vet the applicants and the successful candidate will become involved in selecting an under20s coach, a process expected to be finalised next week. The under-20s job was vacated by Kevin “Squizzy” Taylor a few weeks back and has attracted seven applicants for a post Miller views as a second assistant’s role. It’s believed that Langwarrin has spoken to former Melbourne Victory midfielder Callum Goulding. He walked out on Langy partway through last season and joined NPL rival Box Hill United but there’s a strong rumour that the club is considering recruiting him for a second time in less than a year. Langy held its players’ player of

the year and its annual presentation nights last weekend. Senior players’ player of the year was goalkeeper Robbie Acs and Johnny Kuol was runner-up while Alex Whyte won the under-20s equivalent with Keegan Guy runnerup. Andy McLean’s outstanding season was recognised when he won the club’s best and fairest award with Kuol runner-up. The under-20s best and fairest was Cedric Benza with Whyte and Travis Ernsdoerfer joint runners-up. Sean Skelly won the club person of the year award. The big news in State 1 South-East is Mornington’s capture of striker Amir Osmancevic from NPL outfit Northcote. Ironically the 23-year-old will line up next season against recently promoted Doveton, the club which gave him his senior debut before he spent a year in the Balkans with Sloga Kraljevo and NK Zagreb then returned to Australia and joined Peninsula Strikers in 2015. He switched to Dandenong Thun-

der for the 2016 season and has since played for Dandenong City, Moreland Zebras and Pascoe Vale. He joined Northcote midway through the 2018 season. In State 3 South-East news Skye’s United’s players’ player of the year was Daniel Walsh with Daniel Attard runner-up. Frank Dimu was player’s player of the year in the reserves and Marcus Anastasiou runner-up. In State 4 South news Mitchell Ball will apply for the vacant senior coaching role at Baxter. Roy Kilner quit the post at season’s end and will not be returning. “I’m quite happy to throw my hat in the ring but if a more experienced candidate came along then I’m quite prepared to work alongside him and learn,” Ball said. He might get his wish as former Peninsula Strikers and Brandon Park head coach George Hughes is understood to be on Baxter’s radar. Former Langy assistant Ronnie Whitton had been linked with the Baxter job but he is expected to join an NPL club this week after also being in the frame for coaching jobs at Berwick City and Hampton Park United. A handful of experienced Baxter players are believed to be considering a move to Somerville which finished fourth in State 5 South after its promotion push stalled in the last match of the season. Somerville announced last week that during October and November assistant coach Stan Packer will be in charge of a nine-week summer academy squad to prepare young players for senior and reserve soccer. Those selected from the current squads are: Ash Scholes, Jar McMinimee, Jordan Lunt, Sam Beadle, Latham Horvath, Kadison English, Kevin McCormick, Liam Morgan, Dom Dawe, Cameron Dingley, Caleb Anderson, Alex Colville, Jack McKenna, Tom Brewster, Devlin Lee, Eddie Hume, Callum Love, Lachie Flannigan, Sam Clark-Ash, Alex Clark-Ash, Zac Kearney, Josh Mulder, Joshua Davies. The club also invites players aged 15–21 interested in joining the Eagles for 2019 to contact director of football Zach Peddersen via the club’s facebook page or email zach@elevationsports.com.au Next weekend’s game: SATURDAY 10am: Southern Utd v Calder Utd (U14 grand final, ABD Stadium).


Mitchell ready for world champ, Whateley scores pro win BLAIRGOWRIE boxer Jayde Mitchell is one step closer to his world championship title after a tough victory over former Australian champion Kerry Foley on Friday 7 September. Just as he’s overcome various injuries, Mitchell managed to pick himself up after suffering several blows from Foley in the sixth round, to take out the 10-round match-up at the Melbourne Pavilion. Mitchell, who sat just inside the top 10 world rankings prior to the fight, believes he will now jump into the top five following the victory. Mitchell said Foley would have to be one of the biggest hitters he has faced in his career. “If anyone had questioned my durability before, I certainly showed that I can pick myself up and take it to some of the best,” he said. “He got me with his trademark left hook in the sixth round, and I was gone, but I wasn’t going to let him take away all that hard work and everything we had gained up to this point. “It was a really tough fight and a really tough round, but I made the necessary adjustments and showed why I am one of the best super middleweight fighters.” Mitchell believes the fight against Foley will benefit him greatly in the long run. “Until you’re put into that situation you don’t if you’ve got the toughness and mental toughness to lift yourself out of it, and I think I proved to everyone and myself that I definitely have the mental smarts and physical capabilities to do so,” he said. “We are so close now [to reaching the goal of a world title], all the sacrifice will be all worth it in the end, and I believe I have the tools and style now to become the new world champion.” Mitchell is planning on having one more fight on December 14, before hopefully making a charge at the WBA World super-middleweight Champion, Rocky Fielding in early 2019. Also on the Friday night card, Peninsula Boxing’s Jason Whateley made his professional debut after an exceptional amateur career. Whateley faced New Zealand boxer, Navosa Ioata, in a six-round

match-up and kicked off his professional career in terrific fashion, comfortably claiming his debut fight. Peninsula Boxing head coach Marcos Amado said that while the fight wasn’t for a title, it was still a massive fight which meant a lot going forward. “[Whateley] had 96 amateur fights, but it was like starting all over again,” Amado said. “He had all the pressure and expectation coming into it, so he had to carry that as well. “He had to get used to the different crowd and the different atmos-

phere, so it was good to see that he could actually follow instructions as well as he did and put into practise what we had been training. “It’s easy to do certain things on the pads, and the bags, and with sparring partners but when you’re under the lights and in front of the crowd, to be able to execute the game plan, is a whole different skill in itself.” Amado has always believed that Whateley would be better suited to the extra rounds of a professional fight, and his debut only reinforced that belief. “There’s a big difference as far as

the way things are scored and the way things are looked at but for us Jason is an endurance athlete,” he said. “He’s built for longer rounds, so the more rounds we can fight the better he’s going to look.” “He’s quieter rounds were the first and second rounds and then he stormed home in the third, fourth, fifth and sixth, and considering he’s never fought six rounds before, he made it look easy. “He could have done with the 12 rounds straight off the bat.” This week, Whateley will also be sparring with and preparing Australian cruiserweight boxer

Mark Flanagan as he builds up for his world title bout against Denis Lebedev. Flanagan is expected to be down sparring with Jason from Tuesday 18 September to Friday 21 September. Peninsula Boxing also had four other amateur boxers take to the ring on the Saturday. April Franks picked up a late call-up fight and went up a weight division, but still managed to score a convincing victory. “She took the fight on two days’ notice and comfortably beat a heavier and more experience girl,” Amado said. “The advantage we had was that this weekend she has a fight down in Tasmania, so we were ready three quarters of the way. “Although it was a weight division higher and she had a little bit more experience I knew April was up to the task and I said straight away that ‘she’ll take the fight’.” “The girl was significantly bigger than her, a lot taller than her, probably had a foot higher reach on her but it meant that we didn’t have to cut weight either, so we didn’t have to worry about the weight aspect of it.” Scott McDonald also took up a fight on the Saturday, and while he was dominant at the start, he was forced to stop as he copped a thumb to the eye. “He was winning the bout and had just landed some cracking shots,” Amado said. “The guy just slipped his glove out and just caught him in the eye with his thumb and actually pushed his eye back into the socket. It wasn’t too good. “He lost vision in that eye for a little while. He’s getting better now but it’s still severely bruised and still closed up.” Amado said that “these unfortunate things happen” and a rematch between the two boxers has been organised in a couple of weeks. Glen Richardson also returned to the ring after two years away and managed to give an eight count, being finishing off strongly to score an impressive comeback victory. Maurice Girolami closed out the day with an impressive second round stoppage. “It was a successful weekend all up,” Amado concluded. Ben Triandafillou

Tyabb motocross junior racing through the ranks HE’S only 12-years-old, but Tyabb Motocross rider, Ty Godfrey, is quickly climbing the riding ranks and has claimed the Victorian Junior State Motocross Title on Saturday 1 September. The humble athlete has lived and breathed the sport since he could speak, making motor bike noises and riding his first quad bike by the age of twoyears-old. While he wasn’t specifically aiming to take out the state title, Ty still managed to rack up victories in three of the four rounds at various tracks across Victoria. Ty’s only unplaced round came after dislocating his finger in the second lap, yet he still managed to finish the race off in fourth. The victory was his second major titles win this year having also won the Shipwreck Coast Open in January. Ty’s father, Matt Godfrey, said that while the wins are a massive testament to his ability, he’s actually more proud of the way he has developed over the years. “I’m more proud of how he’s matured, developed and learnt how to cope with the pressure,” Matt said.

“Obviously I’m with him every time he rides, but the way he continues to progress is amazing. I just love the way he is humble and doesn’t want to be a superstar. He has a real cult following from the younger kids, they all want to dress and be like him. I’m just really proud of him.” Ty scored the state title victory over a group of 35 quality riders from across not only Victoria, but also interstate competitors. Matt said the volunteer-run motorcycle track in Hastings, which is based on Blue Scope land, has been a massive benefit for Ty to get to this level. “We’ve got to give a big thanks to everyone around the corner at the motorcycle track,” Matt said. “It’s the best facility for someone like Ty to grow up with. It’s forever changing and caters for all rider types. “That’s where he got a lot of his skill and he’s been going there since he started when he was two.” While Ty is having great success in the motocross discipline, he is also looking at taking up freestyle riding and competing in events once he turns

16-years-old. Matt said he has been heavily influenced by Nitro Circus star, Cam Sinclair, who Ty has become “great friends” with. “He loves jumping off freestyle ramps, and doing flips and jumps into the foam pits,” Matt said. “He just loves riding a motor bike to be honest. Every night he comes home and drops the bag and goes off on the mini bike, and as he gets bigger the jumps just get bigger. “It’s pretty amazing to watch. He gives the big boys a bit of a run for their money that’s for sure.” Ty is now eyeing off yet another major competition, the Western Regional Championships, which he’s currently leading by 50 points with one round to go. Ty won the last round of the championships with a broken fork on Saturday 8 September, and still managed to post the fastest time for the day. The final round of the Western Series will be run in Colac on Saturday 27 October. Ben Triandafillou

Eat my dust: 12 year old Ty Godfrey is making a big impact in the Motocross world. Picture: Yanni Frankston Times 17 September 2018



Dylan is far from Dunn and dusted FORMER champion apprentice jockey, Dylan Dunn, is set to return to the saddle this week after being forced to prematurely hang up the boots 18 months ago due to illness and weight concerns. The 23-year-old has taken some time away to allow his body to recover and was given the all-clear on Wednesday 12 September to resume race-riding by as early as Saturday 15 September. Dunn will be sticking to riding at 58kg in the “country” and 57kg in “town” which he believes will not only benefit his body but also his ability to ride at his best. “When I first retired, obviously it wasn’t exactly something that I wanted to do but I felt that I had to do it because of the way my weight was,” Dunn said. “I just found trying to lose a kilo or two over the

course of a week is fine but when you’re constantly going to lose three kilos the day before a race meeting it just isn’t good for your health, your mental state and also your ability to ride. “I’ve taken some time off to really let my body relax and sort of finish growing too, now that I’m 23. “I’m going into it this time with a much better frame of mind because I’m actually able to eat, I’m not having to sweat and hopefully I’m going to be able to ride even better because of it. “ Prior to taking a step back from the sport, Dunn had ridden more than 130 winners including the Group Three Easter Cup on Leebaz and the Group Three Breeders Stakes on Tris. He is now set to return as a fully-fledged senior rider, having completed more

than four years of full-time riding, including trackwork and on race day. “It probably works out to have ridden 4,000 horses every year or more, so you know it better than the back of your hand,” he said. “As soon as I got on that first horse and was able to have a gallop I felt like I was back home and even doing the trials yesterday I feel as though nothings ever changed. “I honestly feel like I haven’t even stopped, so I’m pretty confident that when I get back it should be all smooth sailing.” Dunn has also spent the past month riding full-time work for James Cummings’ Godolphin stables which he “snapped up” as soon as the offer presented itself. There has also been plenty of support from trainers across Victoria who have offered a lending hand as

Dunn starts to make his way back onto the scene. “There’s been plenty of trainers that said they’ll look after me when I come back and try and support me the best they can, but realistically the thing I’m most impressed about is all the people from day-to-day life that have been fans or friends of family that have shown so much support,” he said. “That’s probably one of the reasons why I am coming back because I feel that I didn’t get to leave on terms that I wanted to, and I had so many supporters back then that I now want to be able to help get great success with.” “Just to be able to reach so many people and have so many great responses back to me just really proves that I’m doing the right thing in returning to racing.” Ben Triandafillou

Mornington women triumph SOCCER

By Craig MacKenzie MORNINGTON’S senior women’s team enjoyed a landmark season by clinching the State 4 South championship on goal difference from Old Mentonians. It was their inaugural season in the competition and they now are preparing for the challenge of State 3 South in 2019. What makes their achievement remarkable is that the average age of the squad is just 17 with the youngest player only 15 years old. There also is a strong club connection with 10 of the 15 players having played with Mornington’s juniors. Coach Robin Smith was thrilled with his side’s triumph and highlighted the squad’s unity as a key factor. “I’m delighted for this group of young women,” Smith said. “They’ve worked hard all season and there is an outstanding team spirit which has been the biggest factor in their well-deserved success.”

Local heroes: Mornington’s title-winning women’s team, back row, left to right: Tiffany Pearce, Hanna Falk, Bella DiNicolantonio, Sarah Liston, Emily Douglas. Middle: Jennifer Quinlan, Tenisha Van Dam, Monique Steenbergen (captain), Lilly Ridgway, Ruby Stewartson, Robin Smith (coach). Front: Kim Anderson, Mik Wharton, Jaia Pate, Anna Munro, Amanda Chhouk.
