Hope is important

Young St bus space ‘shemozzle’ Bickering widens over space for buses along the street Neil Walker neil@baysidenews.com.au

THERE are no plans to widen road lanes for two-way traffic along Young St despite concerns there is not enough space for buses to pass parked vehicles without clipping wing mirrors. Transport for Victoria, “an umbrella organisation” established by the Labor state government in April to oversee VicRoads and Public Transport Victoria, says the width of traffic lanes on Young St are 3 metres wide at the south end and 3.2 metres wide at the north end of the street. Paths have been widened for pedestrians. “The Young  St redevelopment has been constructed according to all relevant guidelines and regulations, but on-street  testing has demonstrated that further work needs to be undertaken to allow for all bus services to operate from the interchange,” Transport for Victoria spokesman Adrian Darwent said. State Liberal MP for Hastings Neale Burgess, whose electorate includes part of Langwarrin, said in Parliament last Thursday (16 November) that transport projects initiated by the Andrews gov-

ernment are an “absolute shemozzle”. “Buses [in Young St] … do not fit. From start to finish the total incompetence of this government and its local member were on show for all to see,” Mr Burgess said in Parliament. “Then the final insult was that vital public transport no longer fits down the street. “It is not as if these buses got fat overnight. The width of the buses was 255 centimetres [2.55 metres] before the project began and they were 255 centimetres when it ended. That is not a surprise. The roadway is 275-centimetres [2.75 metres] wide, leaving buses with just 10 centimetres on each side.” “VicRoads has had to employ a fulltime traffic warden just to try and get the buses down the street.” “After 12  months of bungling and incompetence from the member for Frankston and the Premier, the community of  Frankston  was promised Young St would finally be back to normal by the end of October, but of course it was not.” The Department of Transport confirmed turning circles are “a bit tight” when some buses enter new bus bays along Young St and modifications will follow.

Hampton happy to be mayor again Neil Walker neil@baysidenews.com.au

LOVE and camaraderie were in the air as veteran councillor Colin Hampton was confirmed as Frankston’s new mayor despite “a difficult 12 months” between councillors. A 5-2 majority of councillors voted at a public council meeting on Thursday 9 November to elect the North-East ward councillor as the mayor to succeed Cr Brian Cunial for the next 12 months. It will be the second time for Cr Hampton in the mayor’s chair. He was previously mayor in 2008-09. Cr Cunial admitted his 12-month mayoral term had not been all smooth sailing but said he is proud councillors have agreed to a strategy plan for the rest of the council term. “I guess I’ve got to be realistic — we haven’t always got on very well and we haven’t always done everything particularly well for the entire term,” he said at the meeting. Cr Cunial and council CEO Dennis Hovenden named themselves in September as complainants to the Local Government Inspectorate about “governance concerns”, triggering the Labor state government to appoint a monitor to oversee Frankston Council meetings. The person tasked with monitoring council meetings and reporting back to Local Government Minister Marlene Kairouz has not yet been appointed more than two months after the state government announced a monitor would be heading to Frankston. Longtime colleagues Cr Sandra May-

Happy return: Cr Colin Hampton sees himself as a negotiator who can win funding for Frankston from state and federal politicians.

er and Cr Cunial were chief among the cheerleaders for Cr Hampton to become mayor, describing years of friendship while working as councillors. “Nine years of friendship and you certainly did take me under your wing from the first day I started and I modelled my mayoralty on you and I’ve done it twice now,” Cr Mayer said. “I thought you did a tremendous job and I think you’re a great statesman and, like Cr Cunial, you’ve just got that natural ability. “I’m so excited to have you in the role. I’ve seen you do it before and you did an amazing job and you’re going to be fantastic again. Congratulations — love you lots.” Cr Cunial agreed, saying: “You’re a great bloke, Col.” Crs Kris Bolam, Cunial, Hampton, Lillian O’Connor, Michael O’Reilly voted to install Cr Hampton as mayor. Crs Glenn Aitken and Steve Toms voted for Cr Toms.

Cr Quinn McCormack left the council chamber during the vote without indicating a preference for either mayoral candidate. Cr Hampton pledged to bring councillors together during his mayoral term. He said the coming 12 months will be vital for Frankston since there will be a state election next year. The new mayor also predicted there will be a federal election and said he will spearhead lobbying efforts to secure money for the Frankston region from both major political parties in the lead up to any elections since both the state seat of Frankston and federal seat of Dunkley are marginal, held by state Labor MP Paul Edbrooke and federal Liberal MP Chris Crewther respectively. Cr Hampton, a Labor Party member and former union enterprise bargaining agreement negotiator, said he believed negotiation will be vital in the months ahead to ensure state and federal money flows into Frankston.

“Together with these major redevelopments of our city, a key priority of mine and this council is tackling unemployment so we can create better and more prosperous outcomes for the residents of Frankston,” he said. “It is an unfortunate reality that Frankston has one of the highest levels of unemployment in Victoria, however we are committed to advocating to both levels of government to deliver more jobs to our community.” Cr Bolam congratulated Cr Hampton for his elevation once again to the mayoralty. “You old bugger, in the chair again,” he said. Cr Hampton joked he thought Cr Bolam would call him “bulldozer”, a nickname bandied about within council circles linked to the new mayor’s uncompromising style. The Municipal Association of Victoria ordered Cr Hampton last year to apologise to two council officers after an independent panel found he breached councillor code of conduct clauses for “aggressive” behaviour towards two council staff members. Cr O’Reilly called Cr Hampton “a fantastic bloke [with] a great sense of humour”. “The one thing I’ll say about Colin Hampton is that you cannot dissuade him when he has his mind set on something. There is nothing that will change his view,” Cr O’Reilly said. “It doesn’t matter what the issue is and whose opinion is different, you will stick by your guns because it’s what you believe in.” Councillors thanked outgoing deputy mayor Toms for his dedication to the

role, including his attendance at “more than 250 functions” in a year. “When I first encountered you, I didn’t know how to take you. To be honest, I didn’t particularly like you at the very beginning and that’s my honesty coming out,” Cr Bolam said. “But as I’ve got to know you throughout the year I’ve been so impressed by how you’ve conducted yourself as a firstyear councillor.” Cr Lillian O’Connor was appointed deputy mayor in a 5-4 vote. Crs Cunial, Hampton, Mayer, O’Connor and O’Reilly voted for Cr O’Connor. Crs Aitken, Bolam, McCormack and Toms voted for Cr Aitken to be deputy mayor. Cr Aitken said he will be introducing a notice of motion next year pushing for a return to the 1980s-style of the mayoralty rotating from ward to ward. “It was a more mannerly and gentlemanly system and it provided an atmosphere where competition and the discussions behind the scenes did not thrive because it was simply a given that it would travel from one person to another year by year,” he said. Cr Aitken said Victorian Ombudsman Deborah Glass had shown concern about transparency within councils in a report earlier this year and he believed the appointment of mayors and deputy mayors “should be as open to scrutiny as anything else in council”. “At the moment, to be quite honest, it’s shrouded in backroom deals,” Cr Aitken said. “If people could see what happens behind the scenes I don’t think they’d be very impressed, to be quite honest.”

Turning space for buses ‘tight’ along Young St Continued from Page 1 “We’re getting on with finishing this important project to reinvigorate the area around Frankston station, which opened to traffic and pedestrians at the end of October,” Mr Darwent said. “Recent bus trials have been completed and 10 of 20 services are now using the new interchange on Young Street, including the popular SmartBus services,” VicRoads metropolitan projects director Brendan Pauwels said earlier this month. Public Transport Victoria is working on moving all bus services that previously travelled along the street before the $13 million street upgrade back to

the Young St interchange. Several traders in Young St, alongside Cr Steve Toms and Liberal Dunkley MP Chris Crewther, have been embroiled in a bitter war of words with Frankston Labor MP Paul Edbrooke over delays to the project. A Facebook page cited by Mr Crewther and Cr Toms that stated 26 businesses had closed in central Frankston due to the Young St works delays has changed its name to include businesses “affected” by the works.

It’s a big ‘yes’ for marriage equality Neil Walker neil@baysidenews.com.au A SIZEABLE majority of voters across the federal electorates of Dunkley and Flinders backed samesex marriage in the marriage equality postal survey. The Australian Bureau of Statistics announced last Wednesday (15 November) that 61.6 per cent of eligible voters across the nation voted for the law to be changed to allow same-sex couples to marry and 38.4 per cent opposed the move. An ABS breakdown of voting showed 70 per cent of Flinders voters voted “yes” and 30 per cent voted “no”. The seat of Flinders is held by Liberal MP and Health Minister Greg Hunt. In the marginal seat of Dunkley, held by Liberal MP Chris Crewther, 72 per cent of voters backed marriage equality with 28 per cent voting no. Mr Hunt said in a statement last week: “I was one of those who voted yes and I will be one who supports the bill in Parliament in line with my own beliefs, the majority view of my electorate and the majority view of the country. “I understand and deeply respect that this view is not supported by every member of my community and that is why we will ensure that there is recognition of religious freedom within the bill.” Mr Hunt revealed two years ago he had changed his mind on samesex marriage since voting against a

private members bill in September 2012 to legalise marriage for gay and lesbian couples (“Hunt converts to same-sex marriage cause”, The Times 24/8/15). Mr Crewther said he will push to ensure “equality under the law while simultaneously ensuring religious liberty and freedoms of speech, conscience and belief”. “I congratulate the yes vote getting up, both in Dunkley and nationally, in line with my own personal vote in the postal survey,” he said. “In line with the view in Dunkley and nationally, I will also be voting yes when the legislation is voted on

in Parliament.” Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull says he is confident same-sex marriage can be legalised in Australia by the end of the year. Some MPs want exemptions put in place to allow businesses and religious groups to be able to refuse to be involved in same-sex marriage wedding ceremonies. Mr Hunt said: “It is now our job as parliamentarians to respect the outcome of the vote and implement the will of the Australian people.” The ABS confirmed last week the non-binding postal survey cost taxpayers almost $100 million.

EVERYTHING

WHILE the federal government repeatedly refuses New Zealand’s offer to provide a home for 150 Manus Island refugees, activists have staged a protest over the Hastings office of Flinders Liberal MP Greg Hunt. Refugee Action Collective members climbed onto the office roof displaying banners with the words “Hey Hunt! Health = food, water, medicine and safety. Evacuate Manus!” Mr Hunt’s spokesman Mathew Langdon said: “All Australians have a right to protest, however there’s always a responsibility to do so within the law.” Watched by police, the protesters came down voluntarily after two hours. No arrests were made. “We are here today to draw attention specifically to the horrifically deteriorating health situation faced by refugees on Manus Island,” Refugee rights advocate Amanda Zivcic said. “These men have committed no crime and yet have been deprived of their freedom and their health for four long years. Ms Zivcic said Mr Hunt, who is also health minister, should “do your job

and evacuate these men, bring them here, and give them the health care they need and they’re entitled to”. “There are people with infections, a man with heart pain, a man having serious epileptic seizures, and another one with severe kidney stones. A vast proportion of these men also have mental health issues brought on by years of imprisonment at the hands of Australia. Refugees have been viciously attacked. And now, food is not being let in, the men are prevented from storing water, and all are dehydrated and starving.” Ms Zivcic said the government and the Labor opposition “need to answer for the situation they have created on Manus Island”. These prisons are constructed and funded by the Australian government, they’re staffed by Australians and it was Australia who dumped them there. And the new prison that the men are resisting being moved to in East Lorengau is no improvement on this, and it is even less secure than where they are now.” Stephen Taylor

A COMPANY ending its business life in Carrum Downs is handing over a parting gift to help new starts in the Frankston region. Car components manufacturer Australian Arrow, a subsidiary of Yazaki, is closing its doors in the wake of the end of production of Toyota Camrys and Holden Commodores in Australia. Australian Arrow managing director Craig O’Donohue handed over a cheque for $50,000 to Peninsula Health last Friday (17 November) for a major refurbishment of birthing suites at Frankston Hospital.

The birthing suites refurbishment will include structural changes, new equipment, furniture and technology upgrades. “Around 3000 babies are born at Frankston Hospital every year and this number is continuing to grow,” Peninsula Health operations director of women’s health Sharyn Hayles said. “Our specialised birthing suites are where babies are born every day and are in high demand. Four of the nine suites are in urgent need of refurbishment and now thanks to Australian Arrow we are very pleased to be able to do this.”

Towie loses arm

A TOW TRUCK driver winching aboard a broken down car on Peninsula Link had his arm ripped off when his rig was struck by a speeding motorist, 3.30pm, Tuesday 14 November. The 30-year-old Hampton Park man’s arm was found 70 metres away after the crash. The southbound lanes of Peninsula Link between Eastlink and Frankston-Dandenong Rd were closed for the evening peak after an earlier major collision. Police said the Nationwide tow truck driver was assisting a four-wheel-drive with motorbike trailer attached when a wayward Holden Commodore drove into the emergency lane at speed and struck the rear of the trailer. The collision severed the tow truck driver’s arm above the elbow and caused the Commodore to become airborne and flip onto its roof ending up further down the freeway. The tow truck driver said to be in a state of shock was taken by road ambulance to The Alfred hospital for surgery to reattach his arm, which was collected by a motorist who walked along the freeway searching for it. He was reported to be in a serious but stable condition on Friday. The 38-year-old Frankston North man driving the Commodore was released from Frankston Hospital and was later expected to be interviewed by detectives. Anyone who witnessed the collision, or who saw the Commodore immediately prior to the collision, is asked to call Leading Senior Constable Barry Judge at Somerville Highway Patrol 5978 1300 or Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000. Dash cam footage is especially wanted by detectives.

Rampal, of Frankston CIU, said the man used the cards to buy cigarettes and tobacco. He later allegedly stole other wallets and cash from vehicles in the Frankston North area. A 20-year-old from Frankston has been bailed to appear at Frankston Magistrates’ Court in February charged with aggravated burglary and theft, two counts of obtaining property by deception and three counts of theft from motor cars.

Car teeters over ledge

A WOMAN reversing her car up a steep driveway in Frankston South may have panicked and hit the accelerator instead of the brake, causing her car to roll forward and teeter alarmingly over the edge of a deep drop, 1.20pm, Saturday 11 November. The frightened woman called a friend who alerted 000 to the drama in Baden Powell Drive. Emergency services, including Frankston CFA, SES, ambulance and police arrived to assist the middle-aged woman who was too frightened to attempt getting out of the Toyota car. Sergeant Scott Bodycomb, of Rosebud police, said CFA crews used ropes to secure the car to the house to stop it toppling over the edge. The SES then winched it up to the road. “At the end of the day the woman is safe and

well and the emergency services crews all worked well together,” he said.

Crashers ruin party fun

GATECRASHERS who attended an out-of-control 16th birthday party in Langwarrin used batons and metal bars to assault and terrorise guests, 10.30pm, Friday 10 November. Police said members of the mainly Maori gang threw bottles and stones at the crowd of 200 outside the Grassmere Rd house, initiated brawls and even attacked parents. Frankston police, the Air Wing and the Dog Squad attempted to disperse the crowd, with those in the gang chanting slogans “41” and “42” (referring to New Zealand crime gangs) and abusing police. A 46-year-old man and a 44-year-old man, both of Langwarrin, were taken to Frankston Hospital with cuts and abrasions. Senior Sergeant Michael Lamb, of Frankston police, warned parents of the dangers of especially 16th birthday parties. “Anyone who considers holding a party for a 16-year-old should think again,” he said. “Parties should never be advertised on Facebook – even on so-called “closed” sites – because it only takes one person to post it and word gets out and

A ROSEBUD man allegedly scuffled and spat at protective services officers while being arrested for allegedly attempting to kick in the doors of a Frankston medical centre, 8.15pm, Thursday 9 November. Frankston Senior Sergeant Phil Hulley said the PSOs approached the man in Young St and, when he became aggressive and resisted arrest, he was taken to ground. The man then allegedly kicked out at police who arrived to assist the PSOs. He was sprayed with foam while being bundled into the divisional van. The 23-year-old was charged with being drunk and disorderly in a public place and assaulting PSOs. He will face Frankston Magistrates’ Court at a later date.

Explosive find clears police car park AN exclusion zone was set up around Carrum Downs police station car park on Thursday 9 November after a bag of power gel explosives was handed in by a nearby factory owner. The explosives, which had been left at the factory by a previous tenant, were later deemed safe by an arson chemist as there was no detonator attached. The items were taken away after the chemist received advice from the Bomb Squad. Police reopened the car park after several hours. It is unclear what the power gel was being used for.

New drug for Ally and all would be ‘life changer’ Neil Walker neil@baysidenews.com.au IT took six years for the daughter of Georgia and Stewart Clarke to be diagnosed with a rare form of spinal muscular atrophy and it’s an ordeal the Seaford family hopes other families in future can avoid. The parents first became concerned when daughter Ally, now aged 10, missed important early development milestones, such as crawling, when very young. Mrs Clarke is calling for spinal muscular atrophy (SMA) to be included in the genetic disorder screening list for newborns. “It would be the best outcome for parents because they wouldn’t go through the trauma of misdiagnosis,” she said. “Ally didn’t crawl and my mum tried to tell me how seriously important crawling is. “I was actually was quite ignorant and unfortunately Ally was misdiagnosed a couple of times, unfortunately.” A new drug Spinraza that alleviates extreme fatigue and lack of muscle strength to do the things other people take for granted — such as being able to walk for more than a short distance — has been approved for sale in Australia this month but it remains out of reach for most families unless it is included in the Pharmaceutical Benefits Scheme. The drug costs about $500,000 each year to administer three times a year. “Without PBS funding, it’s totally

out of reach for most Australian families,” Mrs Clarke said. “In order for it to change lives and save lives, it would have to be PBS listed.” She said Ally loves playing sports but it has to be managed for safety reasons and fatigue quickly sets in. “The quality of her life would be amazing with that medication.” Spinraza manufacturer Biogen says there are about 800 Australians living with SMA and there is no cure. Noticeable weakness or limited function in limbs, muscle twitches and loss of reflexes can be signs of SMA, graded from type I (severe) to type IV. Ally has type III SMA and Mrs Clarke says she “faces the challenges of invisible disability”. “People sometimes have a go saying ‘you should be helping your mum’ when I’m putting groceries in a bag in the supermarket but Ally would struggle to lift one item into the bag.” Mrs Clarke says families should contact SMA Australia for support. “They are amazing — I don’t think I’ve waited more than 30 minutes for a call back or return email,” she said. Federal Health Minister Greg Hunt, MP for Flinders, said that under the National Health Act the federal government cannot subsidise the cost of a medicine unless it is recommended by the independent Pharmaceutical Benefits Advisory Committee. “I have met with several families directly impacted by spinal muscular atrophy and I have seen first hand how it affects those who suffer from it,” he said.

“They will only recommend medicines when they are satisfied about safety and effectiveness.” Mrs Clarke praised Mr Hunt and Dunkley Liberal MP Chris Crewther for being supportive of the family when approached to talk about Ally’s health challenges.

Bush poet’s poems collected A FORMER bush walker turned bush poet will have her poetry preserved in print in a project that proves it is never too late to have written work published. Mary Lyons, 87, a former Mt Martha resident and keen walker in the Peninsula Bushwalking Club in the 1980s and 1990s is now mostly confined to a wheelchair at Somercare in Somerville but her love of life living amongst nature is vividly described in her poetry. She worked as a tobacco picker, hop picker and dairy hand. Husband Norm passed on after 54 years of marriage. Family friend Kev Cooper, whose mother also resides at Somercare, said he is gathering the bush poet’s work together to publish in an ebook next year. “My objective is simply to share Mary’s beautiful poetry with the world,” he said. The ebook, called Poetry of the Australian High Country, is written by Lyons from her life experiences living in the Victorian and Tasmanian bush over a 40-year period. Mr Cooper said The Henry Lawson Society poetry and literacy group, based in Kingston and headed by Tony Lambides-Turner, visited Somercare last month to hear readings of the poems. Ms Lyons was inducted as an honorary life member of the Peninsula Bushwalking Club in 1992 by then president Alan Miller. Current club president John Trevillian described Ms Lyons as “a real character with a great love of the bush”. “Mary is a very unassuming character that would never chase the limelight,” Mr Cooper said. “I rate Mary’s poetry works as equal to any of our Australian greats along with the likes of Banjo Paterson, Henry Lawson, CJ Dennis and Dorothea McKellar.”

Never too late: Mary Lyons will have her poems published next year. Picture: Gary Sissons

MEMORY ETERNAL A moment of magic as I turned to see The wonder of nature before me Pack-laden and wet, yet I stand, Enthralled by the beauty of this lovely land. Like a curtain of gossamer it drifted across the plain. The rain! Billowing like the finest silk from an open window pane. The mist! Gently it fell from a distant hole in the sky Dew kissed! Softly as a plaintive cry for an unattainable wish, I stood alone in this unforgettable time And knew a moment that was truly mine. Mary Lyons

WHAT’S NEW

Dr. Janine Ritchie: Now consulting from Frankston Family Chiropractic, Frankston.

Chiropractor returns to Frankston PATIENTS old and new can now see Chiropractor Dr. Janine Ritchie at Frankston Family Chiropractic in Frankston. After spending a number of years interstate, Janine now practices from two locations on the peninsula; Peninsula Sports and Spinal Rehabilitation, and Frankston Family Chiropractic. After completing her science degree in the 90s, Janine worked in the food industry as a microbiologist and the Walter & Eliza Hall Institute as a research assistant in the auto-immunity and transplantation department. After a number of years working in the medical research community and having received chiropractic care as a child, Janine decided it was time to get back to nature as a way of healing, gaining her Masters of Chiropractic. She is also board eligible with the American Chiropractic Neurology Board & remains fascinated by the effect of chiropractic on the nervous system.

She believes her experience in all these fields gives her an informed view on the various approaches to health. Janine believes that everyone deserves to live an active, pain-free life in a strong and healthy body. Her focus is on gentle, low-force techniques which work to improve the function of the nervous system and destress you and your body, supporting you to achieve greater health. She also has experience in the use of low level (cold) laser therapy, where low intensity lasers and light emitting diodes (LEDs) at the infrared and visible red wavelengths are used to relieve pain and reduce inflammation caused by damaged tissue. Janine loves the diversity that comes from working in a family practice – one minute she’s treating a cross-fitter, followed by an infant and then their grandparents! You can make an appointment to see Dr. Ritchie at Peninsula Sports and Spinal Rehabilitation on 5973 4039 or at Frankston Family Chiropractic on 9783 9980.

New ferry for French Island service A BRAND new vessel, purpose built to operate the French Island Ferry service, has arrived in Westernport Bay this week and has begun daily operation. The new MV Naturaliste is an impressive 95 passenger vessel that will deliver a new level of comfort for guests. It is fully airconditioned and complete with large viewing windows and outside deck seating on the lower and upper levels. Named ‘MV Naturaliste’ after the ship captained by Jacque Hamelin who named French Island in 1802, the fast catamaran vessel is 18 meters in length with a total capacity of 95 passengers. Western Port Ferries CEO Matt McDonald says the MV Naturaliste provides a safe and comfortable crossing in almost all weather conditions. “The French Island Ferry provides an important connection to the mainland for French Island residents. It is also an extremely popular

touring route for visitors to the area”, said Mr McDonald. Along with the launch of the new vessel, the French Island Ferry timetable has been expanded to offer 20 new additional ferry services throughout the day. In coming weeks, Western Port Ferries will introduce online bookings and an electronic ticketing system onboard the ferries. Western Port Ferries has been operating the passenger ferry service between Stony Point, on the Mornington Peninsula, Cowes on Phillip Island and Tankerton on French Island since 1 July this year. The new ferry is just one of the exciting new developments affecting French Island with new wildlife and historic tours scheduled to commence on the Island in late November. Naturaliste Tours will be the only nature-based tour operator on the island offering small group touring options for guests.

Bob Dylan revisited: Jeff Jenkins leads a four-piece ‘peace’ band through the songbook of singer-songwriter Bob Dylan. Picture: Supplied

Life and times of legendary Bob Dylan AN uncanny likeness of His Bobness is heading down the highway to visit Kingston as part of a state tour celebrating the life, times and music of Bob Dylan. DYLANesque — The Bob Dylan Story will hit the stage at Kingston Arts Centre on Friday 24 November featuring singer and musician Jeff Jenkins taking audiences through the times that are a-changin’ in a two-hour narrated concert. The tribute show charts the humble beginnings of Dylan’s career, his pivotal relationships and break-ups, his trailblazing songs of the 1960s and 1970s and their continuing influence on popular music and culture. “I read everything I could get my hands on about Dylan and worked all the fascinating stories into a show that would make a great night of rock ‘n’ roll,” Jenkins said. “Dylan is an intriguing subject because of his constant evolution as an artist, immense catalogue of work and his personality. “He’s a man who will always march to the beat of his own drum.” Jenkins opens the show with the extraordi-

nary tale from 1961, when an intrepid teenager hitch-hiked his way from Duluth Minnesota to New York City with only a guitar and $10 in his pocket, busking to make a living. This same young man would go on to become one of the most successful and revered songwriters of all time. Dylan classics including Blowin’ in the Wind, Lay Lady Lay, Like a Rolling Stone, All Along the Watchtower and A Hard Rain’s Gonna Fall will be performed by Jenkins backed by four musicians. Renowned music critic Glenn A. Baker described the DYLANesque show as “one of the most engaging and enjoyable couple of hours I’ve spent in ages”. “Jeff Jenkins not only sounds like His Bobness, but he understands him, even inhabits him.” n DYLANesque — The Bob Dylan Story will be performed at Kingston Arts Centre, 979 Nepean Highway, Moorabbin on Friday 24 November, 8pm.Tickets $35, concession $30, groups of more than six $25 at kingstonarts.com.au/music/ dylanesque or by calling 9556 4440.


Look at this: William and Thomas Gielen were dumbfounded to find buried treasure in their backyard. Picture: Supplied

CENTREWIDE SAVINGS ALL DAY

Boys hit pay dirt with a message “TREASURE” valued at more than $2600 was found buried in a Mt Eliza backyard last week. Two young boys and their uncle came across the booty as they dug a hole for a tree to fill a gap in the hedge. Their spades kept bouncing off something buried deep in the soil – until they managed to dig up a box weighing 22kg. William, nine, and Thomas Gielen, seven, and their uncle David Dicker, discovered the box was full of coins and a tattered and stained note written by a Captain Snodgrass in 1976. The captain advised that he was leaving for the Antarctic and had buried his treasure, adding that there was also a second box “to starboard”. The boys, who have sailed before, tried hard to establish starboard, but luckily Mr Dicker and his sister, their mum Lucy Gielen, found the correct spot. Grandmother Sonja Dicker, of Somerville, said the boys “squealed and yelled with joy at the discovery of a second box of treasure” – also weighing 22kg. Reading the note they saw that Capt Snodgrass wanted the finders to check with police that they could keep the money. So, next day Mr Dicker took the boys to Mornington police station where the sergeant duly confirmed their document was “in order” and checked police records for any

information on it. There was none – the money was theirs. The very wise Capt Snodgrass had set three conditions before the boys would be allowed to keep the money. One third was to be given to a deserving charity. William and Thomas chose “Backyard Buddies”, which assists koalas and birds, and also thought about helping “homeless people with no money”. Another third was to be put into the bank until the boys turned 18 and, the best part: they could spend a third of it on themselves. Tom was thrilled and said he might buy a Porsche 911 as “they are only $150,000”. All the money was deposited into their bank accounts. The bank had been pre-warned as the huge number of coins to be counted meant the machine was in use for an hour toting up the final tally of more than $2600. Mr Dicker, of Chelsea, who had been collecting “annoying” coins for years, believes the find gave his nephews “valuable lessons in responsibility, sharing and caring and planning for the future”. It also provided a practical lesson in maths. “Stacking and counting the money and writing down the tallies and adding the totals were all beneficial,” he said.

Displaying tolerance: Cousins Issie, left, and Alana relate to universal human rights in their entries in this year’s Kingston For Human Rights Art Exhibition. Picture: Gary Sissons

Tolerance the rights talk HUMAN rights advocate and lawyer Julian Burnside QC will be guest speaker at a Kingston For Human Rights event this month. The high-profile and outspoken barrister, an advocate for refugees, will talk about “Celebrating Tolerance” — the theme of this year’s children’s poster art competition — at Parkdale’s Shirley Burke Theatre on Wednesday 22 November. The poster art contest is a Kingston For Human Rights project aimed at raising awareness in the community about the Universal Declaration of Human Rights mandated by the United Nations in 1948 in the wake of World War II to set out fundamental human rights for all peoples and countries. “To define tolerance can be almost as difficult as to actually be tolerant, but these young artists seem to realise that tolerance and peace go hand in hand,” Kingston For Human Rights committee member Philippa Rayment said. Pupils from Clayton South Primary, Men-

tone Grammar Junior, Cheltenham Primary, St Joseph’s Primary, Mentone Girls Secondary, Cornish College, Westall Secondary and Haileybury College’s Keysborough campus have submitted artworks on display at the Shirley Burke Theatre until 24 November. “Not everybody in the world gets to do meditating so it represents tolerance with peace signs,” Mentone Grammar pupil Alana said. “We need peace in the world and to make the world a better place, so the hands I drew joined together holding a world with the peace sign inside it,” Cheltenham Primary School pupil Issie said. n The Kingston For Human Rights Art Exhibition marking the 69th anniversay of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights will be held at the Shirley Burke Theatre, 64 Parkers Rd, Parkdale on Wednesday 22 November, 7.30pm.See kfhr. com.au or call 9587 5959 for more details and free tickets.

Several living areas on the ground floor are all orientated towards the bay, in particular the family and lounge areas that both open out to one of two expansive terracotta tiled balconies. A vibrant showcase of colour and plush carpets are on display in the formal lounge which also has a magnificent wood heater with marble hearth. There is an adjoining formal dining area, and to the lovely kitchen are thick 40-millimetre stone bench tops and a range of quality Smeg and Miele appliances including a dishwasher and wall oven.

FILL ‘ER UP - (L-R): Alex McIntyre (Boost Juice), Darren Lane (CEO Degani), Rogan Ward (Commercial Property Services) and Hayden Warszewski (CEO Fairbank Grange Property) raise a cup to the new Degani drive through coffee and food outlet opening soon at McMahons Road Woolworths in Frankston.

DEGANI DRIVE THROUGH FIRST FOR FRANKSTON ONE of the most prominent, high-profile sites in Frankston, complete with national brand tenants in place, is poised to be one of the most keenly observed sales this year. The property at 41-45 McMahons Road, Frankston has a total site area of about 3400 square metres and an enormous 85 metre frontage to McMahons Road. The sale has some significance as the existing fuel and convenience store outlet, along with Boost Juice, will have Degani coffee as a co-tenant, marking this well-known coffee brands first foray into drive through coffee and food service on the Mornington Peninsula.

“The menu that Degani offers is unique, and is great for tradespeople and travellers looking for a healthier breakfast and lunchtime option.” Managing Agent, Rogan Ward explains. “Not only is this a vote of confidence for Frankston, but for this site, that these recognised national operators would choose to establish themselves here.” Hayden Warszewski, Chief Executive Officer of Fairbank Grange Property, who leases the current Boost Juice franchise and will sub-let to the new Degani outlet concurs. “When looking for a site we must identify the “three pillars of success”, and for us they are a daily minimum of 25,000

passing vehicles, a Tier 1 fuel provider, and the availability of a long, secure lease. This site achieves that and more.” Total annual rent on the site is approximately $423,482.00, and a new 15 year lease has been signed with Woolworths Limited. The property at 41-45 McMahons Road will be auctioned this Thursday, 23rd November at 1:00pm by Emmetts Real Estate of Melbourne, with Commercial Property Services of Frankston as conjunctional agents.

100 YEARS AGO THIS WEEK...

Tyabb soldier returns home wounded Compiled by Brodie Cowburn AMONGST the names in the last list of returning wounded soldiers we are pleased to see that of Private A. E. Hollier, of Tyabb. *** WE regret to have to record the death of Pte. A. J. Dent, at the front. Word was received by the mother of deceased a few days ago of the sad event, and general sympathy is expressed for the bereaved friends. Mr H. Purdy has also been notified that his son has been wounded in the face, though the extent of the injury is not stated. Both lads were well known in Frankston and generally liked. *** A MEETING of the supporters of the reinforcements referendum will be held in the Mechanics’ Institute, Frankston, on Tuesday evening next, for the purpose of forming a committee in furtherance of the successful carrying out of the referendum. As the time is very limited prior to the referendum being taken, it is necessary, if anything useful is to be done, to commence at once. *** THE Somerville branch of the Red Cross Society assisted by the residents of the district are entertaining the returned wounded soldiers on Saturday Dec 1st. The Langwarrin band will play selections during the day, and all are invited to come and give the boys a cheer. *** ON Friday last flags were flying at half mast when it became known

that Pte D. Henderson was reported killed in action. *** DEATH NOTICE ON the 16th October, in France, Private Alfred James Dent, the beloved and only son of Mrs Dent, of Frankston and loving brother of Mrs Alf C Hill, and Mrs F Scarborough, and Annie. We pictured your safe returning, Alf. We longed to clasp your hand but God has postponed our meeting. It will be in a better land. He died a hero - One of the best. *** A GENERAL meeting of the Somerville Fruitgrowers’ Association will be held on Monday next Nov 26th 8pm. in the Mechanics’ Hall. Business—Election of office bearers for Cool Stores, and other. All interested are invited. Important. *** MESSRS Brody and Mason will hold an extensive clearing sale of the whole of the furnishings of a 14 roomed residence, on account of Mrs A. S. Panter (who has sold her property), on Wednesday next, at their mart, Bay street. *** A VERY pretty wedding took place on the 7th November, at the Mornington Junction Presbyterian Church. The bridegroom was Walter Ernest John Scott, late of the 39th Battalion in the A.I.F. only living, son of the late Henry Charles Scott and Mrs J. A. Hurndell, Mornington Junction. The bride, Violet Edith Wilson, second eldest daughter of the late

Charles Wilson of Moorooduc and Mrs James Male of Mornington Junction. The ceremony was performed by the Rev G. Carson of Balaclava, late of Mornington. The bride was charmingly dressed in cream crepe de Chine, with the usual veil and orange blossom arranged in a cap effect, and she carried a bouquet of roses, carnations and maidenhair fern. She was given away by her stepfather and was attended by two little bridesmaids (step sisters of the bride) dressed in embroided voil, and carried pink bouquets with pink streamers. *** THE annual meeting of the Western Port Parochial Council was held in Holy Trinity School Room, on Saturday last, November 17th. Captain Chaplain Croker of Caulfield Hospital, gave a very interesting account of the work the church league of soldiers’ friends is doing for the men in khaki. His Grace the Archbishop also spoke of the good work being done. At 12.30 the delegates adjourned for lunch which had been provided by the ladies of Holy Trinity and was all that could be desired. *** AN evening was held in the Seaford Hall on Wednesday, 21st September to “Welcome Home” two of the local boys, Privates W. Martin and A Mathewson, who have been returned to us wounded. The hall was packed and many were unable to get a seat.

Major Conder, Officer Commanding Langwarrin Camp, made a capital chairman. Several of the Langwarrin boys assisted in the programme which was thoroughly enjoyed by all present. Supper was catered for by the Ladies, after which those who danced were well catered for until 12.30. *** RESIDENTS of Frankston and district will be sorry to learn that “The Hermit”’ has been removed to the Melbourne Hospital. On Sunday last, Dr Maxwell, hearing that the old-man was ill, visited the camp and found him suffering from heart trouble. John Maddox, who was formerly a sea captain, has lived a life practically cut off from the outside world, in a secluded spot, about two miles from Frankston, for the past twelve years. His unique and picturesque abode has been admired by hundreds of visitors to Frankston from whom he refuses to accept money, preferring to work for his food. Since the above was in type we learn that “The Hermit” died at the Homoepathic Hospital on Friday morning last. The body will be brought to Frankston today and buried in Frankston cemetery on Sunday afternoon. *** A DISTURBANCE took place at Frankston on Saturday evening last, when a crowd of weekend visitors arrived by the train. They proceeded to stroll down the

main street in a disorderly fashion, laughing and calling out boisterously, when Constable Ryan remonstrated with them. On them not taking any notice, the constable decided to arrest one of the worst behaved, and while on the way to the lockup, several of his companions attempted to effect a rescue. The policeman warned them to desist, but one of them followed to the police station, and as he would not go away when requested, Ryan went to arrest him also. In the ensuing struggle the first offender, it is alleged, viciously attacked the constable, who was kicked, struck about the face and body, and knocked violently against the fence. He retaliated, however, fought with his prisoner, and finally handcuffed the other man, and lodged them both in the cells. *** ON Saturday night a novelty night was run by the Social Club and proved very successful, a great number of costumes being worn. The prize winners were, ladies: Miss E. Unthank; gents: Mr Twyford. A number of visitors from Mornington were present and all enjoyed the evening. *** THIS week a large number of local residents are on the Island after mutton bird eggs. A good trip should result. *** From the pages of the Mornington Standard, 24 November 1917

THE MEANING OF EXISTENCE... AND OTHER SHORT STORIES

The Russians Have Invaded My Toaster By Stuart McCullough IT happens rarely. Having to buy a new toaster is something you only do because the old one has somehow come to grief. No one decides they need a flashier appliance in which to make their breakfast. Toasters are the ultimate quiet achiever. For days, weeks and then years on end, they spit out high-quality produce until one day, without warning, they don’t. Our toaster had served us well. Perhaps weakened by a lifetime of multigrain, the lever broke. Let me say right up front that I regard this as so much more than just a run of the mill mechanical failure. It’s betrayal, pure and simple. Appliances ought to live forever. In fact, I’m sure they used to. I’m certain that the video recorder once used by my great great great great grandparents back on the farm in Ireland still works an absolute treat and it’s only because you can’t buy a three hour VHS cassette to save yourself in this day and age that I no longer use it. Appliances, by rights, should be immortal. I don’t want to have to buy a toaster every few years because the one I bought can’t hack it in the real world. It’s often said that breakfast is the most important meal of the day. I, personally, think it goes much, much further than that. Breakfast is the bedrock of humanity. Do you think there’d be a United Nations if breakfast didn’t exist? Not a chance. Einstein would never had developed the Theory of Relativity without a bowl of Wheetbix. Odds are, he’d still stumbling around in his pyjamas

PAGE 28

and scratching himself, were it not for breakfast. No breakfast means no music and no art. There just wouldn’t be a sufficient cause to get out of bed. Without it, we’re all lost. It was obvious that we needed a new toaster. And quickly. But because buying a toaster is something you only ever do as a matter of necessity, there’s always some major advance in toaster technology to wrap your head

Frankston Times 20 November 2017

around. Last time, it was ‘crumpet control’. It sounded almost Orwellian. I’ll admit that, despite some initial skepticism, I’ve grown to love ‘crumpet control’. It got to the point that, if offered crumpets, I would demand to know if ‘crumpet control’ had been used, and refuse to eat the results if the answer was anything other than affirmative. So it was that a pointless extravagance became indispensible.

I arrived home from work to find the old toaster gone – presumably to the Big Breakfast in the sky – and a new, shiny toaster in its place. The first thing I noticed was that there was no lever to press to make the bread go down. It was a ‘button only’ affair. Making toast is an art that has now entered the twenty-first century. While some might think it was about time, for me it seemed like too much, too fast. I simply wasn’t ready for my breakfast to enter the digital age. For me, toast is a reminder of a simpler time. Despite my reluctance, I was curious. What could my new-age supertoaster do that the old one couldn’t? After syncing my emails to the crumb tray and hooking it up to the wi-fi so that I can get my breakfast started while still in bed simply by sending an email, I was dazzled by the bank of glowing buttons. Not only did it have a ‘crumpet control’ function, it also had a ‘fruit bread’ button. This, presumably, is to once and for all put an end to the phenomenon we’ve all suffered at some point whereby you set fire to your fruit bread because you forgot to lower the setting. It was always such an exciting moment. Another step forward, another tradition gone. It also had a button labeled ‘a little bit more’. The idea being that if your toast is not quite to your liking, you can send it back for a little more time without the risk of it becoming horribly burnt, its identity only ascertainably by way of its dental records. Wonders would never cease.

It’s as though they were determined to take all the skill out of making toast. Frankly, it’s the kids I feel sorry for – if confronted with a regular, run of the mill toaster, some of them wouldn’t know where to start. At first it was glorious. But then, something went wrong. Lights started to flash. A beeping sound that suggested attack was imminent began emanating from the bottom. Worst still, the steel claws that held the bread in place as it tanned itself delicately to become toast, refused to release their grip. In effect, my breakfast was hostage to an appliance. It was, without doubt, an unmitigated disaster. It made no sense. In this day and age, there’s no way something so fancy could be defective on day one. There’s only one plausible explanation – Russian hackers. Clearly, the KGB has hacked its way into my toaster and set loose some kind of virus or malware or, I don’t know, the ghost of Ivan Drago from Rocky IV. It’s typical of Putin. First the Ukraine. Now my toaster. There’s nothing else to do other than to go completely off the grid and make my breakfast under the veil of secrecy by starting a small fire in the backyard and using a coat hanger to warm the bread. Then again, I might be overacting. I tend to do that when I’m hungry. I should compose myself – perhaps a short song or half an album – before boiling the kettle and having something to eat. Crumpets would be ideal. stuart@stuartmccullough.com


Welcome to the Peninsula’s Best Kept Secret Festival!

BLUES AT THE BRIARS BACK FOR 2018 Fresh off the back of 2017’s epic festival, Blues At The Briars returns on February 24 for its sixth celebration of blues and roots music on the Peninsula. A combination of great music, amazing food and wine, and a dedicated children’s area make this day a must in everyone’s calendar. The Peninsula’s best kept secret keeps delivering in the amazing rural setting of the historic Briars homestead and surrounds. Bring a chair or a picnic rug and soak up the landscape and vibe while listening to the best bands from Australia and abroad. February’s festival is shaping to be the best yet. A.J. Ghent (USA) constructs an indie rock sound howling from the church to the blues. His style can be defined as fresh, nostalgic, electrifying and rootsy, fusing blues, funk, R and B, hip hop and dream pop into a genre he likes to call neo blues. Z Star Delta (UK), described as the love child of Jimmy Hendrix and Nina Simone, takes you on a personal and spiritual journey to experience her intense magic. Come and experience her live at the Briars. Blues At The Briars are also proud to announce the triumphant return of the best boogie pianist on the planet, Ben Waters (UK) joined by Derek Nash the best Sax player going around. Derek is regarded as one of the UK’s most prominent and versatile saxophonists, playing with the Jools Holland Rhythm and Blues orchestra since 2004, performing live with artists such as Eric Clapton, Paul McCartney, Amy Winehouse and many more. Along with many more homegrown bands and artists from around the country, this line up will be awesome. Keep an eye on the Facebook page and website www. bluesatthebriars.com for more artist announcements coming soon.

The team at Blues At The Briars takes great pride in showcasing not only established artists, but up-and-coming talent. The Teskey brothers who were a highlight at this years festival have not stopped touring throughout the UK and Australia, supporting such iconic acts such as Midnight Oil, Rag and Bone man and headlining in their own right. This year Blues At The Briars have pulled out all the stops with a sound and lighting upgrade so the tunes will be crisp and clear for all to enjoy. The VIP area returns with amazing food and drink packages, in a dedicated marquee where you can enjoy the show in luxury. Treat yourself this indulgence and make it a day to truly remember. Not many VIP areas have a prime view of the stage like this. Tickets are limited for the VIP marquee so get them quickly. For the younger blues lovers we have a safe area to roam and enjoy. Face painting, balloonists, and bouncy castle, with arts and craft to keep them amused. If you are looking for somewhere fun and funky to take the family look no further. Children under 14 are free! Entry costs are kept as low as possible to enable everyone access, with disabled access, easy parking close to the gate and friendly volunteer staff to ensure your experience is enjoyable and hassle free. A fully stocked bar with very reasonable nonfestival prices will be open all day. Blues At The Briars 2018 is a special, immersive, family-friendly experience that will stay with you long after the last notes have been played. www.bluesatthebriars.com

The Kangas crush Magpies PROVINCIAL

By IT Gully LANGWARRIN sits at the top of the MPCA Provincial ladder after crushing Crib Point by nine wickets on Saturday. A half century to Taylor Smith and centuries to Andy Johnson and Matt Prosser saw the Kangaroos reach 1/284, in reply to Crib Point’s total of 162. Prosser played a typically patient innings opening the batting, hitting five

boundaries in his 101, while Johnson was the aggressor, hitting nine fours and three sixes in a dominant display. Baxter’s woes continued on Saturday, humiliated by old foe Peninsula Old Boys. Chasing 212 for victory and resuming at 1/4 with Daniel Warwick already in the sheds, Baxter never recovered, rolled for just 101. It’s hard to remember the last time that Baxter has performed so badly for a prolonged period of time. Justin Bridgeman top scored for

the visitors with 27, while Joe Rule opened with 23. Chris Brittain was out for three and Dale Irving for 13. Since opening the season with a ton, Brittain just hasn’t been able to find his mojo. Irving has struggled with the bat all season, as has Warwick. No such problems for the Old Boys, who sit equal top. Tom Shayler was sharp with the ball, snaring 4/23 from 11 overs, while Eivion Bowen took 2/11 and Jon Forrest 2/10.

Baxter was rolled in just the 46th over. Pearcedale smashed Sorrento, as expected. Sorrento made just 98 in its first innings and Pearcedale kicked off day two of the clash at 1/60. Chris Dew went on to make 76 and Will Kennedy 81, while Jarryd Herbert picked up 36 and Kaine Smith 35. The Dales batted for 94 overs and finished on 6/283, a smashing victory. Mt Eliza also made light work of Mornington, eventually.

Resuming at 2/50 and chasing 144 for victory, there were some anxious moments for the Mounties before Lyle House (36) ensured his team claimed victory. At one stage Mt Eliza was 6/132 after losing 3/8, including Justin Grant (27) and Keith Biggs (67). However, House saw his side get the result before Nick Baron (71) and Rob Maskiell (44no) had some party time at the end to help their side to 289, a 150-run victory.

Sharks win a thriller PENINSULA

By IT Gully GUN Flinders batsman Tom Clements single-handedly won his team the match against Delacombe Park on Saturday after scoring a monster century. With his side in some early trouble at 2/5, chasing the Parkers 237, Clements took control of the situation, faced 224 balls, banged eight fours and six sixes and finished unbeaten in the 80th over on 151. While teammates continued to fall around him, Clements took it upon himself to win his team the match. Skipper Neil Barfuss hung around for 29 balls and made 29 and Brennan Gillies hit 22. Other than Will Tuck with 11, not one other Flinders player made it into double figures. The Sharks got over the line in the dying balls of the game, winning by just one run, 238 to 237. Pines claimed a stirring victory over Red Hill, winning by 15 runs. Red Hill resumed on day two on their home deck at 1/13, chasing Pines modest total of 166. Andrew Mock (60) and Riley Shaw (20) resumed at the crease and added

26 runs to the overnight total before the wheels began to fall off. Simon Dart was bowled by Harley Parker for one and when Brent Martin was out a short time later, the Hillmen were up against it. At 5/52, Pines’ bowlers were up to the task and eventually bowled out the opposition for 151. Alex Coad was again the pick of the bowlers for Pines with 5/47 off 20.3 overs, while Nick Wilcox bowled 28 overs and finished with 2/66. Long Island wasn’t able to reach the lofty heights of Main Ridge, falling 42 runs short of the total. Chasing 261 for victory, the Islanders were bowled out for 218. Daniel Heyne top scored for the Islanders with 40 while skipper Aaron Paxton hit 38. Luke Collins was the best of the Ridge bowlers with 4/70, while Oliver McEnroe snared 2/45. Moorooduc made light work of Somerville, winning by 82 runs. The Eagles resumed at 3/22, chasing 210. Brenton Alp top scored for the Eagles with 56 while Bailey White was next best with 44.

DISTRICT

By IT Gully HASTINGS defended its miserly total of 119 against Baden Powell on Saturday, winning by more than 50 runs. The Braves were always going to start the day in some trouble, resuming at 4/23, however, things didn’t improve any. Bryce Kellerman with 15 was the only remaining Baden Powell batsman to score double figures, as the home side slumped to 64. The Blues went to the crease again and batted another 51 overs, slumping to 5/72. It was enough to pick up a muchneeded win for the Blues. Rye was back to its old ways with the bat on Saturday, thrashed by Mt Martha. The Reds were defending 226 and Rye was resuming at 1/8. The Demons lasted just 56 overs and were bowled out for 97. Josh Gana made a third of the runs, scoring 31, while Matt Whelan was trapped in front for 11.

Rhys Whitling opened the bowling for the Reds and claimed 4/22, while Kyle Bendle bowled 17.2 overs for a return of 3/22. Rosebud wasn’t able to get the 139 runs required for victory against Seaford. The Buds resumed at 0/3 on their home deck, chasing just 138. Billy Quigley (20), Jason Mathers (24) and Pete Doughty (25) all got starts, however, none of them were able to have enough impact to carry their side over the line. Chris Cleef bowled 29 overs for a return of 3/40 and Matt Herbert claimed 3/7 from 11.5 overs. Dean Polson also took 2/22 off 12 and Dale Christie 2/35 off 23. Heatherhill was no match for Seaford Tigers, belted by more than 100 runs. Defending 8/262, the Tigers rolled the Hills for just 145 in 70.4 overs. Gun junior Liam O’Halloran was a star with the ball for the Tigers, claiming 5/28 off 10 overs, while Ash Mills snared 2/41 off 20 overs.

Saints whacked SUB-DISTRICT

By IT Gully BALNARRING won yet another match in MPCA Sub District on Saturday, however, the ladder leaders will not be able to claim the points, or, not yet. The Mornington Peninsula Cricket Association stripped Balnarring of all of their points for claiming they played an unregistered player, Mitch Klienig. Klienig was registered with the club, however, was permitted out to Ivanhoe last season for the final three games of the year. Knowing Mitch Klienig was in fact registered, Balnarring CC was not aware that it required a permit from Ivanhoe back to their club. Rather than communicate and use common sense, the MPCA simply stripped the Saint’s points and provided them with the opportunity to appeal. Balnarring has contested the pennant committee ruling and has asked that they revisit their decision. They have contested this on the grounds that “due process was not followed in accordance with senior playing rule 17 (b), under powers and responsibilities of the pennant committee which states (b) the pennant Committee shall determine appeals against refusals of clearances and applications for match permits. All permit applications

must be submitted in writing and must have been submitted to the player’s club. Such applications must be made on the appropriate form”. There was no permit application submitted in writing to the Balnarring Cricket Club at any point by the MPCA. Balnarring CC has stated that it “certainly would not have played an ineligible player had the MPCA protocol been adhered to.” Surely common sense from the MPCA will prevail here. Simply admit that the process was not followed and give back Balnarring the points they deserve. On the park, Balnarring punished Ballam Park by more than 100 runs. Defending 9/324, the Saints rolled the Knights for 207. Stu Plunkett top scored for the Knights with 65 while Ben King continued his dominant form with the ball, claiming 5/70. Dromana tried valiantly to get the 248 runs required to beat Tootgarook, however, finished 13 runs short. Jaryd Millington picked up 4/51 for Toot while Kierran Voelkl (78) and Zac Klan (73) were the run getters for the Hoppers. In other matches, Carrum was rolled for 101 chasing Tyabb’s 7/246, Boneo beat Skye by seven runs, 2017 to 200 and Frankston YCW was too strong for Carrum Downs, scoring 204 in reply to Carrum Downs’ 177.

Call to include new clubs MPNFL

By Toe Punt A WORKING party representing the majority of Mornington Peninsula Nepean Football League clubs has called on AFL South East to look at existing clubs within the area to introduce a third division in 2019. The working party, which includes John Coburn (Frankston YCW), Mick Dunne (Mt Eliza) and Chris Sharman (Frankston Bombers), met with AFLSE boss John Anderson last week. The working party believes that non MPNFL clubs operating from within the traditional Mornington Peninsula area should be the clubs used to expand the MPNFL competition into three divisions. These clubs include South Mornington, Peninsula Old Boys, Skye, Carrum and Frankston Dolphins, while other clubs could also be targeted, including Chelsea Heights and Lyndhurst. However, despite the large majority of MPNFL clubs opposing the new structure for 2019, AFLSE remains steadfast in its plan to bring in South East Football Netball League (SEFNL) clubs into the three division competition. In 2019, AFLSE has documented that Division One will be made up of the top seven teams of the 2018 MPNFL Division One, as well as the top three SEFNL clubs. Division Two will comprise the remaining three 2018 MPNFL Division One clubs, the top

five MPNFL Division Two clubs and the fourth and fifth-placed SEFNL clubs. Division Three will comprise of the remaining seven 2018 MPNFL Division two teams and the bottom three SEFNL teams. Promotion-relegation will then begin between these three competitions. This resolution remains in force despite the fact that the final report into the Senior Football Competition Review still not being tabled. It also remains in place despite the fact that the majority of the current MPNFL Clubs are opposed to any involvement with SEFNL Clubs. It remains clear that AFLSE agenda is to include SEFNL clubs in any competition, given this is the area of jurisdiction for the AFL region. It’s not about what is best for the MPNFL, it’s about what is the easiest form of governance in the region for the AFL. Surely the working party’s suggestion of creating a third division, made up of clubs already within the MPNFL region, makes more sense to ensure a competitive, sustainable solution. At the meeting, the working party was also told by Mr Anderson that clubs would be required to sign their AFL affiliation agreement before December 1, or they would not be covered by player insurance and would not be able to participate in season 2018 in the AFLSE competition. This is despite the fact that clubs have not been affiliated since the AFLSE came into power a couple of seasons ago.

Beck, McLeod flag five-year plan for Baxter SOCCER

By Craig MacKenzie A CLOSER relationship with new NPL outfit Langwarrin could be the springboard which catapults Baxter into State 2 South-East. That’s the target that new Baxter gaffer Francis Beck and director of coaching Billy McLeod have set in an ambitious five-year plan for the State 4 South club. “We’re looking at two promotions in five years,” said Beck. “If we can do it then we’d call that success. “We’re not ready to be a State 1 club yet and you have to move up then consolidate but we think that what we are aiming for is achievable.” Baxter’s generosity in allowing Langwarrin to hold NPL trials at Baxter Park recently while council work on Lawton Park took place spawned talks between Beck and Langy technical director Stephen Fisher about closer ties between the clubs. Enter Langy assistant coach Ronnie Whitton who had guided the club’s reserves to a title triumph last season and his discussions with Beck led to five Langy players training with Baxter last Thursday with the possibility that more will follow. “I told Langwarrin that if all these guys are interested in staying together then I’ve got the team for them,” said Beck. However there is a fly in the ointment in the form of Skye United coach Billy Armour, a former Langy player of the year who has met with Langy president John Heskins to facilitate the capture of Langy players now surplus to NPL requirements. The five Langy players who trained with Baxter are goalkeeper James Foster, striker Mitch Blake, defender Tim Lee and midfielders Matt Morgan and Jordan Redburn. Blake and Redburn are due to train with Skye this week before deciding where to play next season. Other newcomers to Baxter training were defender Joe Iline from Doveton, midfielder Jack Morgan from Hampton Park United and forward Isaak Barr from Peninsula Strikers.

Baxter boss: New head coach Francis Beck has an ambitious five-year plan.

Mornington duo Sam Luxford and Luke Strohhecker are due to train at Baxter Park this Thursday. Beck, who turns 35 next month, is in his first senior coaching role. He was born in Canberra and played junior soccer at Tuggeranong, Weston Creek and Belconnen Blue Devils before playing with Wollongong Wolves in the national youth league. He moved to Melbourne in 2008 to be closer to his wife’s family and it was a chance meeting with current Southern United junior coach John Meades that led him to Baxter Park. He’s been a jack-of-all-trades at Baxter having been in goal and played as sweeper, in central midfield and up front.

“I pretty much played down the spine because once you’re out wide there’s too much running involved,” quipped Beck. While lamenting the loss of Frank Ntim and Matt Owens to retirement he was delighted to scotch rumours that had Owen Kilner and Mark Pagliarulo also leaving the first team squad, Kilner rumoured to be heading overseas while Pagliarulo was another on Armour’s radar. “Owen’s definitely staying and ‘Pags’ is going nowhere,” said Beck. However doubts remain over the ability of star striker Liam Kilner to overcome a debilitating back injury. Mornington’s campaign to win an NPL spot has gathered impetus with news that it has clinched the signing

of English striker Max Etheridge. The 27-year-old hitman has already had a successful stint here with Morwell Pegasus, Bentleigh Greens and Kingston City and is expected to return to Melbourne later next month. Etheridge has been on the books of Evo-Stik League South West Division outfit Swindon Supermarine. “We actually contacted Max midway through last season when we heard he was keen to come back,” said Mornington boss Adam Jamieson. “After losing Ryan (Paczkowski) he’s a fantastic signing for us.” The man who wants to be known as the pied piper of the peninsula has been at it again and has lured another two English players to Centenary Park. Former English pro and Peninsula Strikers head coach Andy O’Dell confirmed last weekend that he has clinched the signatures of Nicky McNamara and Josh Howell. McNamara, 28 next month, spent four years with Hull City and had a loan spell with Milton Keynes Dons before O’Dell brought him to Fawkner. McNamara also played with Port Melbourne before returning to England. Howell, 21, has been on Scunthorpe’s books and is a tall left-footed defender. Both players are due to arrived in Melbourne in mid-February. Langwarrin will step up its preparation for its inaugural NPL season by taking on Box Hill United’s seniors and under-20s at Lawton Park on Saturday 2 December. On Saturday 9 December Langwarrin will play Kingston City’s seniors and under-20s at Lawton Park. On Sunday 17 September Langwarrin will take on South Melbourne’s seniors and the curtain raiser will be between Langy’s under-20s and Skye United. Kick-off times will be announced later. A number of triallists were on show last Saturday morning at Lawton Park as Langy gaffer Gus Macleod goes about his task of building a senior

squad for the 2018 season. Young midfielder Darcy Powlik was impressive. He is a former Murray United player who joined Eastern Lions midway through last season. Experienced defender Luke Burgess is another triallist. He has had a stint with South Springvale and joined Whittlesea Ranges from Dandenong City last June. The decision as to which two visa players will be signed for next season will be left for as long as possible with Connor Belger and Paul Speed not due to return from England until early January. Big George Whiteoak will hold talks with Casey Comets this week and seems certain to move while Comets continue to be linked with gun striker Liam Baxter. Southern United is licking its lips at the prospect of moving into its new administrative and training base in Wedge Road, Carrum Downs in 2018. The facility is part of a $7.5 million upgrade of Carrum Downs Recreation Reserve which includes a floodlit multiuser synthetic pitch and a pavilion with dressing rooms, a first-aid room, three referees rooms, kitchen, social area, administration office, meeting room and four storage areas. The project is on track for completion next March. Skye United has retained the services of veteran coach Billy Rae who will again assist Armour with the senior squad and will also coach one of the club’s junior sides. Meanwhile Frankston Pines is in mourning following the death of Campbell Tervit last weekend. Tervit was a long-standing Pines fan and former junior secretary whose Scottish brogue gave a distinctive edge to his vocal support and left the opposition and match officials in no doubt as to which side he followed. “Campbell was a very loyal man, a great Pines man,” said former club president and life member Alan Hodkinson. Tervit was 76 and died following a long illness. He is survived by his wife Rita, their daughter Heather, step-daughter Beverley and sons Michael and Brian.

FRANKSTON TIMES scoreboard

Late starter smashes through the rankings By Ben Triandafillou IN JUST over a year, junior tennis player Emmerson Priest, of Mt Eliza has risen from competing in entry level competition for the Mornington Tennis Club to sitting in the top 50 of Victoria’s under-12 girl’s category. Her commitment and rapid improvement has seen her move from section six in 2016 to now representing her club in section one and competing in Australian ranking tournament events. Emmerson has had a full schedule over the past few weeks where she has represented the Mornington region at the Judy Dalton Cup and competed in the 2017 Better Tennis Frankston Cup, an Australian ranking tournament. At the Judy Dalton Cup, which was held at the Mornington Tennis Centre on Saturday 28 October, Emmerson helped her side reach second place and take home the runners-up trophy. The following weekend at the Frankston Cup, which was held at Frankston Tennis Club, Emmerson

took out the under-12 doubles event with partner Alexis Stergiopoulos and finished in third place in her singles event. Emmerson said she wasn’t too sure with how she would go at the Frankston Cup where she played doubles with a girl she hadn’t met before. “I was a bit surprised with the overall results,” she said. “I didn’t know what we would be like together as a team, but it turned out that we worked really well together. “I feel like every match and tournament I play in, I continue to play better and improve my results.” Having only started competing in Australian ranking tournaments at the start of this year, Emmerson has now risen to rank 31 in Victoria’s under-12 girl’s category and sits just outside the top 1000 in Australia’s open women’s category. Emmerson trains seven times per week under the guidance of Elite Ten-

nis Academy coaches Kate Antosik (based at the Mornington Tennis Centre) and Greg Wikman (based in Glen Iris) and said she would just love to be one of the next top women’s tennis players in Australia. According to her coaches she has a lot of potential considering how quickly she has risen through the ranks. “She has a great work ethic and has huge potential upon the junior and senior circuit,” Kate Antosik said. “Emmerson only began playing Australian ranking tournament events in 2017, and has already proven that she can compete with these girls who have been playing a lot longer than her.” Emmerson’s result’s from the Frankston Cup has seen her jump up 206 places in the rankings. With no specific upcoming tournaments in mind, Emmerson said she just wants to play as much as she can to reach her goal of playing with the elite.

Golfers geared up for charity golf day PLANS are in full swing for the 13th annual Independence Australia Daddo Charity Golf Day which is set to be held on Friday 24 November. Independence Australia has again teamed up with the Daddo family to host the inaugural event, with more than 130 golfers ready to tee off at Moonah Links on the Mornington Peninsula. Independence Australia chief executive, Peter Turner said the event holds great significance to the organisation, which supports people living with a disability or personal need. “The Independence Australia Daddo Charity Golf Day has earned a reputation as a go-to event, with a large number of participants and

sponsors returning each year,” Turner said. “Thanks to the generosity of our supporters, we are able to continue to provide essential psychology and counselling services to Victorians living with a disability and their families.” More than 35 teams will battle it out on the Legends and Open courses, with the main attraction being the ‘Hole in One’ competition where golfers will have the chance to win a brand new Mercedes Benz SLC200 thanks to Advance Careers. The event’s auction and monster raffle are two other highly anticipated parts of the day, with more than $10,000 worth of items up for grabs

including a Western Bulldogs 2016 AFL Premiership Lithograph, exclusive dinner gift vouchers, electronics and accommodation packages. Prizes will also be awarded to the winning teams and players scoring the longest drive. Co-founder Peter Daddo said it was an “absolute honour” to be part of Independence Australia’s main fundraising event, which continues to sell-out each year. “My family and I are looking forward to another memorable day and sincerely thank everyone who has played a part in ensuring this important event continues to strengthen each year,” he said.

Frankston Athletic Club secretary Colin Lane said it was a fantastic achievement by the juniors to return with 21 medals. “Our junior section between the under-14’s and under-20’s is our largest part at the club and we usually do quite well at these events but to get seven gold medals is a great achievement,” Lane said. The gold medal winning athletes are now preparing to head to Adelaide next month for the Australian All Schools Championships. The Frankston Athletic Club also won a bronze and silver medal at the State Relay Championships on Saturday 11 November at Lakeside Stadium.
