Cinema booze plan shot down Brodie Cowburn brodie@baysidenews.com.au THE end credits have rolled at council on a plan by Hoyts cinemas in Frankston to sell alcohol in their cinemas. Frankston councillors voted at the 13 August public meeting to issue a planning notice of refusal to the cinema,

which was seeking to serve alcohol inside its foyer and auditoriums every day of the week. Under the proposal, G and PG-rated films would have been alcohol-free. The final vote split the councillors’ votes 3-3, with the mayor’s casting vote tipping the balance in favour of no booze sales at Hoyts Frankston. Mayor Cr Colin Hampton said that the “area which has been asked for

Olinda Coffee Table was $1999



to consume alcohol” was the biggest problem with the proposal. “The area takes in all of the foyer and all of the cinema areas. This theatre encourages children to come to the theatre,” he said. “If this gets up and they sell drinks from the foyer, there is no way you can stop anyone from drinking alcohol in the foyer area when there are children running in and out. It should

be in a controlled atmosphere.” Cr Glenn Aitken also supported the refusal, telling council “we have enough issues in this town with alcohol without making it freely available in a cinema. I do not see how it is the time and the place to have alcohol served in a cinema setting.” The move to deny the sale of booze inside the cinema was also backed by Cr Steve Toms.

“Hoyts is a major corporation. They shouldn’t be serving alcohol between the hours of 11am and 1am,” Cr Toms said. “I live in the city centre and I see drunken ‘yahoos’ carrying on until all hours, and quite frankly I don’t want this sort of behaviour to happen around children. I’m trying to protect our young children.” Continued page 2

Continued from page 1 Deputy mayor Cr Michael O’Reilly was supported by Cr Quinn McCormack and Cr Brian Cunial in voting to approve the proposal to sell liquor on the premises. Crs Kris Bolam and Sandra Mayer abstained from voting. Cr O’Reilly told council “these days you can download a movie pretty as soon as it comes out, which is really hurting the bottom line of cinemas. There’s been talk for many years that cinemas were going to die out. Luckily they’re not, and one of the reasons they’re not dying out is because movie theatres are trying to change.” Cr McCormack said that “the days of prohibi-

tion are over” when backing the sale of liquor at Hoyts. The proposal to serve alcohol at the cinema was first made to council in January by Sophie Kuszircuz of Contour Town Planners, representing Hoyts. She said that “we understand that this community, like many others, faces challenges with regards to alcohol-related behavioural incidents and we understand Frankston Council takes licensing matters very seriously as it should” (“Booze pitch for cinema”, The Times 5/2/18). There could be a sequel in the works despite council’s decision. Hoyts can appeal to the Victorian Commission for Gambling and Liquor Regulation.

Treats for pet owners A FREE pets giveaway leads the latest Frankston Council push to reward responsible ownership of animals. Councillors at the 13 August public council meeting voted to back a proposal by Cr Kris Bolam to “give away” the first 15 animals adopted from council managed pounds in the month of October when the Pets Day Out event is held. Frankston dog owners who can provide evidence of accredited obedience training will be eligible for a 10 per cent discount on annual registration fees. There will be no registration fees for service animals such as guide dogs. “By having a joint emphasis on both responsible pet ownership and enhancing pet adoptions, the message should be that Frankston is indeed a pet-friendly city,” Cr Bolam said. “All animals eligible for adoption at council’s pound have had their vaccinations and relevant health checks. They are ready for a new and happy life.” Owners who want the “menacing animal” status of their pet revoked after three years must now mandatorily put their pet through accredited obedience training. “If a canine has been classified as a ‘menacing dog’, it is with very good reason,” Cr Bolam said. “This new process ensures that there has been a manifest improvement in their behaviour before that classification is removed.” The latest council incentives for responsible pet owners come after councillors voted in July to drop the first year registration fee for any animals adopted by Frankston ratepayers from councilrun pounds.

Eyes on voters as election in sight MORE surveillance cameras on Frankston streets have been promised by both sides of politics in the lead up to November’s state election. Law and order is shaping up as a political point of contention between the Labor state government and Liberal National Coalition state opposition. Victorian Police Minister Lisa Neville visited Frankston last Thursday (16 August) to unveil 15 new CCTV cameras in central Frankston’s Young Street area. Footage from the cameras will be monitored in real time days and nights from Frankston Police Station. “The upgraded CCTV network will help police keep a close eye on the Frankston CBD and Young Street transit hub, making it a safer and more inviting space for the community,” Frankston Labor MP Paul Edbrooke said. “This is an important upgrade for the CBD and feeds into our government’s massive redevelopment of the area.” The $273,000 CCTV system was funded by Frankston ratepayers and state taxpayers through a public safety infrastructure fund. The switch on of the CCTV cameras in central Frankston came days after the opposition promised to make grants of up to $250,000 available to councils, including Frankston, for more surveillance cameras. “Only a Liberal Nationals Government will ensure that residents of the City of Frankston are safe in their community,” Liberal state Upper House MP for the South Eastern Metropolitan Region Inga Peulich said. Victoria Police Detective Senior Sergeant Michael Lamb is the Liberal state candidate for Frankston and will face off against former firefighter Mr Edbrooke in the ultra-marginal seat on polling day in November.

Talking points before school Judges’ choice: Lucy Steer and Liv Zuidema savour their award. Picture: Supplied

Students taste victory FLINDERS Christian College students Lucy Steer and Liv Zuidema rose to the challenge to win the National Secondary Schools Culinary Challenge, Saturday 11 August. The two-day event was run by the Australian Culinary Federation at Holmesglen Institute, Glen Waverley. The Year 12 food studies students delighted the judges with their twice

cooked Asian-inspired chicken. It consisted of a poached chicken, Asian-style sauce, egg noodles, ginger carrot puree, crispy chicken skin, stir fried pak choy, pickled pak choy, turned mushrooms and kafir lime dust. Teams came from Queensland, South Australia, Tasmania and New South Wales.

STARTING school should be a time for children to make new friends but young Molly McDonald faced a mateship hurdle. Molly’s mother Kelly said people had difficulty understanding the fiveyear-old girl. “Molly wasn’t talking properly so the other kids couldn’t understand what she was saying – she is a beautiful little girl but the other kids didn’t want to play with her because they couldn’t understand her,” she said. “She’d try to talk to you and you’d go ‘what is she saying?’ – you just could not make it out.” A kinder assessment found Molly was not ready to start school.

Peninsula Health’s paediatric speech pathology team stepped in to help. Speech pathologist Jessie conducted one-on-one speech practice sessions with Molly after initial group sessions. “Molly loved it. She called it speech kinder,” Ms McDonald said. “Jessie always had a game to play with Molly and was really good with her. “She’d give us homework, which was usually games and some sheets to carry on with when we got home.” Molly’s speech is now greatly improved and she is ready for school next year. “We have seen a 90 per cent

improvement in her speech,” Mrs McDonald said. “Now she’s leading the play at kinder and talking in front of the class in a confident voice.” Speech Pathology Week is 19-25 August and anyone concerned about a child’s preschool speech development can call Peninsula Health on 1300 665 781 to book an assessment. Speech pathology is also provided by Peninsula Health as part of NDIS services. See peninsulahealth-ndis. org.au online. Speech pathology sessions are held at community health hubs in Frankston, Hastings, Rosebud and Mornington.

Sports pavilion opens A NEW multi-sports hub was officially opened last week and is set to be shared by soccer and footy players. The $4 million-plus centre, described as “state of the art” by Frankston Council, was funded by Frankston ratepayers ($2.7 million), state taxpayers ($1.05 million), a Melbourne Water living rivers grant ($55,000) and the Carrum Downs Junior Football Club ($50,000). Southern United Football Club pledged to pitch in $50,000 after a synthetic sports field is installed. Frankston mayor Cr Colin Hampton and state Carrum Labor MP Sonya Kilkenny opened the sports hub last Thursday (16 August). “This facility has been designed to replace the former community space at the Carrum Downs Community

Hall, and will allow for the future growth of sports clubs that utilise the Carrum Downs Recreation Reserve,” Cr Hampton said. The new multipurpose pavilion includes a multi-purpose community social room and kitchen kiosk area, an associated kitchen/kiosk areas for community use, four change rooms and associated amenities, office space, community meeting rooms, storage, umpires change rooms and new public toilets. The building is fitted out with female-friendly changing rooms. The Carrum Downs Community Pavilion will be home to Carrum Downs Junior Football Club, Carrum Downs Auskick and Southern United Soccer Club.

Raising a glass: Beach 162 staff celebrate council decision to allow the restaurant to increase its maximum patronage limit. Picture: Gary Sissons

Patronage win for restaurant Brodie Cowburn Brodie@baysidenews.com.au THE Beach 162 restaurant in Frankston is celebrating a win this week, after Frankston councillors voted to increase its patron cap at a public meeting on 13 August. The restaurant will now be able to host 120 patrons on Fridays and weekends, an increase from the previous 74 allowed before the amendment. The initial proposal was to raise the cap to 100 patrons before this was amended to accommodate 120. Beach 162 co-owner Mariam Jamil told council her restaurant would not “be able to survive” if their limit was only raised to 100. “In this matter, we are at the mercy of the financial pressures of running a small business in the restaurant industry. Unfortunately for us, we do not own the property that we operate, and we pay rent. The landlord expects an appropriate commercial return on his property,” she said. “Under the current cap we have of 74 patrons, we have no opportunity to meet those demands.” Cr Steve Toms said that the changes should be made because “it is a duty of council to support thriving small business in our municipality”. Cr Glenn Aitken said he had “not had one complaint from any resident in the city at all. I tend to measure the conduct of businesses and practices on feedback. With this particular application, I have heard nothing but good spoken everywhere”. Only one councillor voted against amending Beach 162’s expanded license. Mayor Cr Colin Hampton voted against the increase, citing car parking as his reason for not voting in favour of the changes.

“I am really concerned about the parking issues around this venue. It’s a great venue and we’d love small business to thrive, but we also have a community to look after,” he said. “I know for a fact that residents are finding it awkward sometimes. Because there is a deficit of 18 car parking spaces, even though the business is a great business and thriving, I’m afraid I’m going to have to oppose it.” Four individual community members spoke to council in support of the move, including former mayor James Dooley, who said “the only just cause for the office’s recommendation is that there is insufficient car parking to accommodate a patronage of 120 persons. To my way of thinking, we as a community cannot encourage drink driving. I would have thought that making an allowance for car parking is contrary to the general sentiment that our community has toward drink driving.” Dozens of supporters of the restaurants attended the meeting and applauded the eventual decision to increase the maximum number of patrons. “I feel it’s a win, not just for us, it’s a win for the community. It’s a win for employment, for entertainment, for good food, and for good environments,” Beach 162 co-owner Mariam Jamil said. “We were always hopeful we were going to win, and we always had faith, and we did. We had the support of the community, and we’ve always done the right thing.” The venue applied for the increase to their patron cap in 2015 but was almost unanimously voted down at the time. As part of the proposal, a management plan will be devised to help deal with any parking squeeze that arises from increased patronage.

Police patrol Bikes swiped from factory

FIVE race motorbikes have been stolen from a Honda Motocross Racing factory in Seaford. Thieves smashed in the front door of the factory at about midnight on Sunday 12 August. Keys were taken from the office to gain entry to the service area. A transit van was used to drive off with five stolen motocross bikes. The van was later found abandoned. Frankston criminal investigation unit Detective Sergeant Brett Daly said three of the bikes had no clutches or batteries. Anyone with any information on the theft of the bikes should contact Detective Sergeant Daly on 9784 5590.

Home invasion

POLICE are appealing for any witnesses to an alleged home invasion in Seaford’s Madden Street at about 7am on Sunday 5 August. Three men, wearing “hockey type masks”, confronted a man in the house who shut himself in a bedroom. Other family members were in the house at the time. One of the offenders had a Taserlike device. The trio fled without making any demands. Anyone with information should contact Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000 or make a report at crime stoppersvic.com.au online.

And they’re off: Honda Motocross bikes stolen from Seaford factory.

Fire find

AN electrical fault may have sparked a fire at a vacant Nepean Highway, Frankston property at about 4.30pm on Sunday 12 August. CFA firefighters brought the fire under control and police later cordoned off the residence as a crime scene when the remains of a cannabis crop were discovered.

Fuel fool arrested

A driver who sped away from police but ran out of petrol in Frankston was arrested at about 11.30pm on Thursday (16 August).

Somerville Highway Patrol officers spotted the green Daewoo, allegedly with stolen number plates, on Frankston-Dandenong Road. Police attempted to intercept but the car took off. Police arrested the man shortly after his vehicle ran out of fuel on Peninsula Link. A 41-year-old man from Cranbourne was interviewed by police and charged with 26 offences including theft from motor vehicle, handling stolen goods, dangerous driving and possessing drug of dependence. He was remanded to appear at the Frankston Magistrates’ Court.

Take two for traffic op POLICE returned for an encore performance at Frankston’s Peninsula Link on Thursday 16 August when Somerville Highway Patrol officers used automatic number plate recognition on passing vehicles at Peninsula Link. Three suspended drivers, two disqualified drivers, 10 unregistered vehicles, one drug driver and one vehicle with false number plates were caught in the police dragnet dubbed Operation Hollywood. Two cars were impounded and towed away for 30 days since the drivers had prior convictions for the same offence. Thirteen motorists were also intercepted and fined $282 for “overtaking a police vehicle or emergency vehicle with flashing red or blue lights while operating at a speed greater than 40kph”. One speeding incident involved a MICA Ambulance stopped at the side of the road due to a medical emergency with a patient being transported. “Fair warning was given that we’d be enforcing this offence strenuously,” Acting Senior Sergeant Peter Martin said. “My members are continually getting into and out of vehicles at these locations.” Many motorists don’t realise just how dangerous it is to be driving past an emergency worker when there is literally half a metre or less between the vehicle and the emergency worker.

“A car travelling at 100 kmh travels 28 metres in just one second. Sometimes even the wind rush from a passing car puts emergency workers at risk. The law has been in for well over 12 months but even if it wasn’t a law, it’s just common sense not to endanger someone on the roadside.” See vicroads.vic.gov.au online for the new 40kph law when passing emergency vehicles.

MORE than $35,000 is on its way to charities thanks to the Frankston Charitable Grants Program. Frankston mayor Cr Colin Hampton said the grants are vital for many charities in the municipality and are used to expand services, upgrade equipment or ensure services can continue to be delivered to the community. “Over the past 9 years, the Charitable Fund Grants Program has made a real positive impact to many local charities, who with limited funds and resources deliver vital support to many in our community,” Cr Hampton said. “It is a real honour to meet the inspiring faces behind these local charities, and to hear how these grants will make a difference in the lives of the people they work with.” Grants were given to: n Operation Larder Inc ($7954)

Cancer Patients Foundation Limited ($5000) Micare Ltd ($4000) Mums Supporting Mums ($4961) Groomed to Go ($5000) Children Australia ($1400) Ardoch Youth Foundation ($5000) the Australia Red Cross Society’s trauma teddy and calico doll programs ($660) n The Shorehouse Community Group Inc ($1039) The Frankston Charitable Fund was established by a deed of gift between the Melbourne Lord Mayor’s Charitable Foundation and Frankston Council in 2009. It a perpetual fund, where the interest in dividends provides an annual grants program to charities operating in Frankston City.

Sweet harmony: Mornington Peninsula Welsh Ladies Choir welcomes new members. Picture: Supplied

Choir ‘blooms’ like its colourful emblem MORNINGTON Peninsula Welsh Ladies Choir president Helen Selby compares the Frankston based group’s progress to its symbol, “a brilliant daffodil and our daffodil is blooming”. “We were formed just 11 weeks ago under the

direction of the amazing choral conductor Tom Buchanan,” Ms Selby said. “We already have 35 choristers and [recently] performed our first concert with none other than the Australian Welsh Male Choir.

“We have another concert planned with that choir next month and, in November, are performing at the Melbourne Recital Centre.” New choristers are invited to join this “happy and supportive group of women who love

singing together”, Ms Selby said. “No Welshspeaking skills are needed and no auditions are required. We would love to have a choir of 100.” Call Helen Selby on 0424 719 291 or email secretarympwlchoir@gmail.com

‘Gifts’ enable networking – mayor Keith Platt keith@baysidenews.com.au TICKETS and invitations for council officers and councillors to attend sporting events are a “perfect example” of the type of “gift” that can benefit Mornington Peninsula Shire, according to the mayor Cr Bryan Payne. “It’s amazing who you meet in these super boxes,” Cr Payne said. He said sporting events “in particular … break down all barriers” and help forge beneficial networks. Cr Payne said he had no problems with the shire’s CEO Carl Cowie accepting two $300 tickets from recruitment firm McArthur to a corporate box at an AFL game in May. The shire’s gifts, benefits and hospitality register shows Mr Cowie accepted finals tickets from McArthur in September 2016. McArthur was this month hired by council to find suitable candidates for

the shire’s top job, which has a package of about $400,000. Cr Payne said he had “noted” Mr Cowie’s entry in the gifts register and brought it to the attention of other councillors and the consultant from McArthur working for the shire. “That consultant [head of executive search Nick Kelly] was not at that event,” Cr Payne said. Cr Payne said he had “no problem” with shire officers accepting gifts “as long as they’re disclosed - if they’re not disclosed, we have a problem”. He said there were many benefits for shire staff to network with government staff and company representatives. The mayor has previously criticised Mr Cowie’s reluctance to declare a Mediterranean cruise taken by he and his wife aboard a luxury liner hired by prominent businessman and shire property owner, Lindsay Fox. Mr Cowie eventually listed the cruise in the register in March, putting

the “estimated value of gift” at $8400. Cr Payne said that he would not have accepted such an invitation during his days as a municipal CEO. On Friday, Mr Cowie said it was appropriate for shire officers to accept invitations from private firms “where hospitality provides an opportunity to undertake business of a common purpose”. Invitations were not accepted if they “have potential implications for council’s reputation or image or may cause an actual or perceived conflict of interest”. The gifts, benefits and hospitality register is available for public scrutiny, but only at the shire’s Rosebud office during business hours. An appointment must be made to see the register and the inspection time is limited to 15 minutes. No photocopies or photographs are allowed to be taken of the register and a council officer is present while the register is being looked at.

Councillors and shire officers who have made declarations in the register are told that the register has been inspected and can see who has made the inspection. Gifts declared in the register range from a $2 necklace from the Friends of Los Palos group to Mr Cowie’s Mediterranean Cruise. Mr Cowie and the shire’s corporate counsel David Carrington have also accepted tickets to the Australian Open tennis. Mr Cowie went courtesy of Optus and Mr Carrington was a guest of recruitment firm, Taylor Root. Mr Cowie passed on two $200 tickets to a Cricket Victoria function at the MCG to other council officers. The gifts register is audited each year by the Victorian Auditor General’s Office with the results being passed on to council’s risk and audit committee, but not made public. The Gifts, Benefits and Hospitality Policy states: “Gifts, benefits and

hospitality received must not create a real or perceived sense of obligation that may lead to a perception of preference or conflict. “Councillors and council staff are to ensure that attendance at private functions does not have potential implications for council’s reputation or image or may cause an actual or perceived conflict of interest.” Mr Cowie said shire officers “in consultation with their manager, consider each invitation on its merits and make appropriate decisions consistent with the shire’s gifts policy”. “Mornington Peninsula Shire goes beyond the minimum transparency requirements and makes the gifts register available for public inspection,” he said. “All shire officers clearly understand their obligations to avoid conflicts of interest and do not accept invitations that may give rise to any conflict of interest.”

Nick Columb, 1946-2018 Journalist, racehorse owner, football club president By Peter McCullough SPORTING identity Nick Columb died on Friday 10 August while holidaying in Spain. He was 72. For many Mornington residents he will be remembered as the former owner of Morning Star Farm (originally ‘Sunnyside') just off Nepean Highway between Mornington and Mt Eliza. Built for the Gillett family in 1867, the property lay vacant for some years after the departure of the Franciscans who had converted it into a “training farm for boys”. On 4 November, 1986 The Age reported the change of ownership: "Nick Columb, 41, former journalist, now racehorse owner and winner of numerous races, including last year's Caulfield Cup with his mare, Tristarc, lives with (his family) on their brood mare stud farm, Morning Star Farm. The house, which was dilapidated when they bought it in 1981, has been extensively renovated … After a spectacular run of failures he is now home and hosed." Within a year or two of that report the Columb family had moved on. Although he may have experienced a setback or two, Nick Columb managed to capture the attention of journalists at regular intervals. In 2003 he was managing singer Peter Brocklehurst. In 2006 a newspaper reported that Columb agreed to "...generously accept the role of defining the path forward..." for the

Thoroughbred Racehorse Owners' Association which had just dismissed its executive and members. Columb was described as a "long term friend and life member”. He was chairman of the association for close to 20 years. In 2008, Nick Columb ran unsuccessfully for the position of Lord Mayor against Robert Doyle. Two years later he was axed from his regular Sport 927 segment, describing it as “censorship” following his on-air comments about talks between TVN and Queensland racing. In 2013, The South China Morning Post reported Columb filling a role created by the Hong Kong Jockey Club to "guide and assist mainland owners”. Apparently he was still a "respected bloodstock consultant" to the Jockey Club and living in Asia at the time of his death. Whenever Columb's name has appeared in the newspapers it has invariably been accompanied by the word “colourful”. While at times controversial, he has also been described as "the most successful Group 1 winning horse owner of the 1980s", with two Caulfield Cups, two Golden Slippers, two Oaks and a Derby to his credit. Although his relationship with Caulfield trainer Ross McDonald was sometimes volatile, together they won 22 Group 1 races. Less successful was his venture into the management of Australian rules football: in 1989 he was president of Footscray Football Club and favoured the then-proposed merger with Fitzroy. The off-field controversy was something that Bulldog fans have never forgotten.

A CONTROVERSIAL near half a billion grant to the Great Barrier Reef Foundation has been slammed as “a slap in the face” to scientists working in Aspendale. A federal government decision to give $443 million to the foundation is under scrutiny after it emerged the organisation itself did not formally apply for the taxpayer-funded grant. Federal Isaacs Labor MP Mark Dreyfus blasted the decision by the Liberal National Coalition government and Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull. Mr Dreyfus said the money would have been better directed towards climate change research by the Commonwealth Scientific and Industrial Research Organisation (CSIRO). “Mr Turnbull’s captain’s call is a terrible waste of taxpayer dollars and is a slap in the face of the hard-working climate scientists at the CSIRO in Aspendale,” Mr Dreyfus said. “ThereOF is simply no way to justify that funding END FINANCIAL YEAR of this size would bypass sufficient process and be handed to an organisation with just six staff, that didn’t even ask for it. Yet that is exactly what has happened.” Federal Environment Minister Josh Frydenberg says “extensive due diligence” was done before deciding to give the foundation $443 million of taxpayers’ money. The foundation itself said it was unaware of the “due diligence”. “My department concluded this grant would meet the government’s policy commitment to protect the Great Barrier Reef, represented value for money

Climate concern: Federal Isaacs MP Mark Dreyfus says CSIRO science should be backed. Picture: Gary Sissons

and was consistent with the governance and accountability act,” Mr Frydenberg told Parliament on Monday. The CSIRO has suffered federal budget cuts over the past few years. Climate change research is conducted at the organisation’s Aspendale laboratories. “The Great Barrier Reef Marine Park Authority and the CSIRO, including the experts here at the CSIRO Marine and Atmospheric Research Centre in Aspendale, should have been consulted and given the opportunity to use their expertise to offer a real solution to fix the condition of the Barrier Reef,” Mr Dreyfus said. “The Abbott-Turnbull government gutted $115 million from the CSIRO in its 2014 Budget. It slashed jobs at the CSIRO Research Centre in Aspendale and put the future of the centre in doubt. And now it’s ignoring the CSIRO to throw taxpayers’ money at an outfit that is quite clearly not up to the task. “I call on Mr Turnbull to recall this $443 million and go through proper processes to give expert organisations, including the CSIRO, the opportunity to use their expertise to save the Great Barrier Reef.”


At Wesfresh, there is red and white meat, oils, pastas, an extensive range of canned items, toppings and international items. Wesfresh is open Monday to Friday, 8am till 5.30pm and Saturday 7am till 3pm at 490 Warrandyte Road, Langwarrin south. Phone 5971 1172.

Sand shifts to make way for new track On the straight: After announcing the start of a new training track at Mornington Racing Minister Martin Pakula (centre) walked along the straight with Tony Hancy, Peter Le Grand, Paul Edbrooke and Greg Carpenter. Picture: Yanni

MORNINGTON racecourse is about to get a $2.75 million all weather synthetic training track. The synthetic track, to be completed by September, will replace the existing 12-year-old sand track and allow training all year on a more consistent training surface. The existing track base and drainage

will support the new synthetic track, which will be the same dimensions as the old sand track – 1730 metres in length and eight metres wide. The club estimates it will save $15,000 a year on water. The Melbourne Racing Club holds 18 race meetings and 40 jump outs each year at Mornington, with around

86 trainers and 440 horses using the track to train. Racing Minister Martin Pakula said the government would give $1.38 million from the Victorian Racing Industry Fund towards the project. Racing Victoria is providing $962,500 towards the track upgrade and the Melbourne Racing Club $412,500.

Since 2014, the government has provided almost $1.84 million to support six infrastructure projects and five race day events at Mornington. The racing industry in outer Melbourne generates more than $375 million a year for the Victorian economy and helps to sustain more than 3720 full-time equivalent jobs in the region.

Ulysses crew ready to rally A MOTORCYCLE club claiming to be one of the largest social clubs in Australia is coming to Mornington early next year. The Ulysses Club, for riders aged over 40, will hold its national rally at Mornington Racecourse, Monday 25 February to Sunday 3 March The seven-day rally is likely to attract 2000-2500 motorcycle enthusiasts from Australia and overseas. Members will be riding their motorcycles, scooters and trikes, and there will also be around 100-150 RVs for those members who will take the opportunity to have an extended travelling holiday. The rally also means businesses will benefit as the Ulysses Club members will need accommodation, and are likely to frequent restaurants, supermarkets, wineries, art galleries and tourism sites. The public can attend an open day and trade show, 10am-9pm, Thursday 28 February, at the racecourse with motorcycle manufacturers and their latest bikes and trade stalls. Entry is $15 adult, $5 for those under 16 and $35 a family of two adults, two children under 16 years. The motorcycles will be on show during the grand parade through Mornington 9-10am, Saturday 2 March. The club is hoping residents will line the route and wave as motorcyclists ride past. Plans are yet to be finalised for the parade to finish at Mornington Park, where members of the public can join in the civic welcome ceremony and presentation of the Motorcycle Apprentice of the Year.

Parties ‘united’ over waste of rail money The “united” intentions of the Liberal and Labor parties to electrify the Stony Point Line to Baxter is a ridiculous waste of money. Not only is it unnecessary, but it will also be a massive eyesore with minimal gains. In this era where the healthy functioning of our planet is actually under threat, we need to pursue sustainable goals. If this money is available it should be used for more beneficial purposes. One alternative would be to promote and support sustainable energy by installing solar panels on all school roofs in Frankston and the [federal] Dunkley electorate. Another alternative could be to increase biodiversity, a cornerstone to the healthy functioning of our environment, by purchasing areas specifically to enhance indigenous flora and fauna. It could even be used to end logging of old growth forests and finding alternative employment for those affected by this. Henry Kelsall, independent candidate for the state seat of Frankston

Switch suppliers How does the Victorian population feel about the super profits [power company] AGL just announced? I for one count myself lucky, as I’m not a customer of theirs and get a very favourable energy deal from another retailer. In the light of AGL’s attempts to have a floating gas import terminal at Crib Point with a pipeline to Pakenham - which I see as having the potential to damage Western Port and our food bowl - would urge AGL customers to think very hard if this corporation deserves their custom. AGL thinks it’s still not making enough money out of us, it now entertains to sell us our own gas exported from somewhere else in Australia back at a decent profit. Charming really, Isn’t it? Rupert Steiner, Balnarring Beach

Line waste? Sustainable goals suggested instead of electrification of Stony Point Line to Baxter. Picture: Gary Sissons

Going vegan Vegan signs are everywhere. At the bottom of every restaurant menu, on packages of food in the shops, even in the grog shops. What’s going on? A recent Roy Morgan poll found that almost 2.1 million Australians now choose to eat meatfree and, according to data from Google Trends, “vegan” is one of the most popular searches. And it’s not just food: vegan labels are appearing on everything from fashion and beauty to cleaning products. High-profile celebs such as


“So engrossing was the performance, and so smooth the progression between movements that the work seemed to end far too quickly.” Artshub

Liam Hemsworth and Natalie Portman regularly comment on their vegan choices. What is behind this swelling interest in plant-based products? Primarily, concern for the hundreds of billions of animals who endure agonising suffering and terrifying deaths every year just so humans can eat their flesh. But plenty of vegans also know that it is far better for our health, as well as reducing our carbon footprint by around 73 per cent. The question really should be: if you could cut your contribution to climate change, reduce your

risk of obesity, hypertension, cardiovascular disease and some cancers, and save around 200 animals every year from agonising deaths, why wouldn’t you?

New research shows cashless is already king CASH payments are fast becoming a thing of the past. New research shows that the ease and security of waving a card, phone or even your wrist instead of carrying around cash is more popular than ever. Detailed research by Colmar Brunton, commissioned for the Australian Taxation Office (ATO), reveals that only one in five Australians still prefer using cash for purchases. ATO Assistant Commissioner Matthew Bambrick said “It’s clear that there’s been a cultural shift towards cashless payments across the board, even for smaller amounts. “The research shows that cash is only the preferred payment method for transactions under $5, and for anything over $50, the vast majority of people want the ease and security of an electronic payment. “Where we once saw people walk into car dealerships with cash in hand, cash has now been relegated to the morning coffee”, Mr Bambrick said. The trend towards cashless payments is particularly evident among people under 35, who carry the least amount of cash. Those aged 18-24 are also half as likely to request a discount for paying in cash compared to the general population. Mr Bambrick said “the move

by the younger generation away from seeking an ‘under the table’ discount is really encouraging. It indicates that a once common practice is now rare as people enjoy the benefits of being cash free.” The research shows consumers are drawn by the convenience of cashless payments, which remove the unnecessary step of withdrawing cash and carrying it around when making any transaction. Tap and Go payments have also been game changing, bringing about faster transaction times. Additionally, cashless payments boast security benefits, by removing the risks of carrying cash and protecting consumer rights through easier record keeping. Mr Bambrick said “The business community knows what people want, and 86% of businesses agree that most customers expect to be able to pay via electronic means. “This research indicates that the trend away from cash will only gather pace. This is more than a passing fad. This is the way of the future. “Particularly with the decline in minimum transaction amounts, we are likely to see more and more people carrying little or no cash at all. Most businesses already know this and we expect the rest will be there soon.”

Hastings thrash Frankston in football match Compiled by Brodie Cowburn A FOOTBALL match between Frankston and Hastings was played at Hastings on Saturday. Frankston, as is usual when they have to travel, could only muster a very poor team and were defeated easily, the final scores being Hastings 12 goals 20 bhds, Frankston 4 bhds. Mr Sposito umpired impartially. At half time the Hastings ladies provided a splendid afternoon tea which was greatly appreciated. Today Frankston will try conclusions with a team from the Langwarrin camp, at Frankston. MESSRS Brody and Mason will conduct a clearing sale of household furnishings at “Elmavere”, Melbourne Road Frankston on Saturday next, August 31, on account of Mr B. Dawborn. Full particulars are advertised. *** ANOTHER planting of trees in the Frankston Avenue of Honor will take place today, (Saturday), when about 70 trees will be planted. Senator G. F. Pearce. Minister for Defence will be present, and the Langwarrin band will also be in attendance. Proceedings will commence at 3pm. *** THE following additional donations towards the cost of planting the Frankston Avenue of Honor have been received :—Mr P. Wheeler; 10s; Mrs Plowman. £1; Mrs Gould, 10s; Mr W. Dickensen, 10s; Mr M. Clements; 10s 6d; Mr D. Kennedy. £1 1s; Mr H. Heath, 10s; Davey’s Bay Yacht Club, £4; Mrs Selleck, 10s; Mrs Baxter, £1; Mr. W. Cone, £1; Mr Ward, 10s; Mr A M’Ilroy, 10s; Mr H. Gamble, £1; Miss Gullett, 10s; Miss O’Grady, £1 10s; Mr Willox 10s; Miss Cadle, 10s; Mrs

Bray, 10s; Dr Atkinson Wood, £5 5; Mr A 10s. *** THE Aussie Girls. One of the prettiest entertainments ever given in Somerville was the Aussie Girl’s concert on August 7th. Brightness and novelty were the watchwords of this clever little company, and they certainly succeeded in pleasing the crowded audience which assembled in the Mechanics’ Hall. The concert was in aid of the Somerville branch of the Lady Mayoress’ League. Almost every item was encored. Though every one was good, three items may be picked out as the best - “Millie the Milliner”. Jack Couldn’t and chorus, with Miss Eileen Unthank as Jack and the rest of the girls as milliners, with huge handboxes, very smart and dainty. The dressing, grouping and staging of this number was excellent. Chinese Ballet, “Chin Chu Chow” by Miss Ruth Murray and chorus would have done credit to a much larger place than Somerville. It was very picturesque, the oriental dresses, lighted Chinese lanterns and darkened stage added greatly to the novel effect. The singing, acting and grouping was splendid. Quite another style of thing was “Joan of Arc” by Miss Flo. Unthank and chorus, and it was equally successful. The dressing and staging were quite in keeping with the French patriotic idea. Miss Ruth Murray as “Juan” looked very handsome and stately, while Miss Unthank and her chorus, Misses Grant (3), Unthank (2), Mary Meldrum and Emily Murray carried out their parts well.

Altogether the Aussie Girls are to be congratulated on their achievement. More than a word of praise must be given to the decoration and arranging of the stake. In this work the girls were ably assisted by Messrs A. Meldrum, Overton and others. The lighting and, limelight effects were in the capable hands of Mr A. Meldrum who worked hard. The Tyabb Comedy Company were very successful in their comedy “Popping the Question.” Each and every one acted well. Misses Woodhouse, Longmuir, V. Cole and F. Unthank (who kindly took her part at short notice,) and Messrs Grant and P. Mair carried the amusing piece through with great success. All the dresses and stage accessories, or most of them, were made by the girls themselves. Mrs H. Grant played all the accompaniments in her usual faultless manner. A dance was given afterwards at which Miss Flo Unthank supplied most of the music and Mr A. Meldrum acted as M.C. A splendid supper was provided by a group of generous ladies The sum of over £16 was realised as the result of the hard work of the Aussie Girls’ and their friends. *** Playing a Nation’s Part. Australia is calling on its people to supply £40,000,000 to help the Commonwealth to continue its share in the war. On six previous occasions a similar demand has been made, and each time Australia has given more than what has been asked. On this the seventh occasion, it is more important than ever that the people should demonstrate that they stand firmly behind the Ministry in

Frankston Times 20 August 2018

its determination to help the Allies to prosecute the world struggle to a victorious end. To Australia the cost of the war is about £80,000,000 per year, and towards that cost those who have assisted in the raising of war loans have contributed to date £140,000,000. The past which Australia has to bear in the war may seem gigantic, but in order to realise that what we in this war have done is a very small thing compared to the wonderful efforts put forward by the other Allies it is only necessary to glance at the war burden, which England is daily bearing. While Australia spends £80,000,000 a year as her share of the war burden, Great Britain is spending no less than £25,000,000 a week, or £1,800,000,000 per year. What Australia has done pales, into insiginficance beside these stupendous figures. Of course it has to be recognised that the population of Great Britain is many times in excess of that of Australia, but it also has to be recognised that the people of Great Britain for some time past have been bearing not only their own share of the financial burden but a share of the burden of some of the Allies and also a shale of Australia’s financial burden. Australia alone had borrowed £47,000,000 from the British Government for war purposes, while on June 30th last it owed to the lmperial Government no less than £38,000,000 for the maintenance of Australian troops overseas and for the supply to them of munitions. With the raising of the Sixth War Loan, Australia, for the first time put herself in the position of meeting the full obligation cast upon her by the

war. The magnificent response to that appeal was Australia’s answer to the clarion cry which ran through the British Empire - the cry of the Mother country to all her dominions to gather round and help to their utmost to bring the struggle to a victorious end. It was a response that voiced Australia’s determination to bear her own burden, to show to the world that although she was a nation hardly yet emerged from the swaddling clothes which her Empire Mother had given her, she was still strong enough to play a nation’s part when the call came. But Australia has not yet accomplished all that is demanded of her; the fight is not yet won. True it is that ultimate victory peeping o’er the horizon, out before the sun of the Allied triumph has fully risen many weary months, perhaps years, of struggle must elapse. In the struggle to come Australia must bear its part, even as it has borne it in the past. The part is as much a part of money as it is of men. Men fight and so does money, and to-day to all sections and all creeds the appeal is being made to provide that money which will help the Commonwealth to take its share in that ultimate victory which has to be gained. In asking for this money Australia is not seeking a favor of its people. It is asking them to do that, which, placed on the lowest possible plane, means the conservation of their own safety, their own well being, and their own country. It is the imperative duty of every Australian to assist. *** From the pages of the Mornington Standard, 24 August 1918


Blokes on the Balcony Experience! SKILLFULLY depicting a full-throttle mash-up of extreme physical risk-taking, graceful movement and slow-mo fight sequences, Cockfight is a darkly humorous and surprisingly tender piece of dance theatre by newly formed Gold Coast/ Berlin company The Farm that sees long-time creative collaborators Joshua Thomson and Gavin Webber reassess who is in charge. A cross between The Office and a cage fight, Cockfight is a game of comical one-upmanship that builds to moments of emotive impact, where generational truths are exposed and unpacked. A flash of bared teeth, territorial pissing contests, the desperation of needing to prove

yourself versus the need to hold on to what you’ve got. Cockfight explores the power play between men, the frailty of the ageing body and questions our culture’s desperate struggle for achievement. Cockfight is on Tuesday 4 September, 8pm and for a limited time only, you can avail the special Blokes on the Balcony offer which includes not only the performance ticket but a beer and a snag on FAC’s Balcony before the show from 6.30pm. Tickets: $27-$50 | Bookings: 9784 1060 or thefac.com.au

Everything You Want to Know About Space Force (But Were Afraid to Ask) By Stuart McCullough IT was inevitable, really: that President Donald J Trump should decide to take his unique brand of diplomacy to the far reaches of outer space where – arguably – it always belonged. And that it should be packing heat. I’m not sure who in the White House should be responsible for telling the Leader of the Free World that Star Wars was not, in fact, a documentary but a work of fiction, but it’s time to break the bad news before this thing truly gets out of hand. There’s always the chance that the whole shemozzle is the result of a colossal misunderstanding. When President Trump is briefed about ‘illegal alien arrivals’, care should be taken to ensure he understands that these are mostly from Mexico and not, as he may otherwise think, from the Planet Nebulon. We can (quite literally) count our lucky stars that this didn’t happen earlier. It would have terrible for all of us if Space Force had had intercepted a certain refugee from the Planet Krypton. It’s possible that Space Force is part of an unconventional recruitment drive. Now that candidates to work at the White House have officially been exhausted here on Planet Earth, it’s time to go intergalactic. Spock would make a great Chief of Staff. Stoic, reserved and incapable of expressing human emotion, Spock is an obvious successor to General John Kelly. It’s a little known fact that Captain James T. Kirk was a total lunatic before Spock came along. He’ll calm everything down, quick sticks and the Vulcan Nerve Pinch will more than come in handy. In fact, I predict that such will be the Vulcan influence on the Trump Administration; it’ll only

be a matter of time before the currency replaces ‘In God We Trust’ with the far snappier, ‘Live long and prosper’. The job of Space Force is to take total, armed control of the Universe. Frankly, I can see an upside. Having a branch of the armed forces controlling the galaxies means one thing: inter-planetary colonization. As vulgar as that may sound to you and I, it provides a fabulous opportunity to up sticks and move to another planet if the thought of hanging around to see what happens at the midterms proves too overwhelming a thought. Personally, I’m quite drawn to living on Saturn. It has that ‘ring of confidence’ and, I

understand, good schools and close to public transport. Then again, there’s always the risk of an ulterior motive. What if the President is seeking to take armed control of the Galaxy for that most traditional of reasons: real estate. It’s a fact that Neil Armstrong travelled to the moon to play golf. It’s not too hard to imagine the old Trumpster has been mulling over this for some decades and has long harbored the idea of building a full eighteen-hole golf course on the lunar surface. Rather than the Mar-a-Lago, it’d be the Moon-a-Lago. Although you couldn’t really call them ‘greens’. Probably ‘greys’. Four!

Once ‘Space Force’ is up and running, America can finally ditch ‘The Star Spangled Banner’ in favour of the kind of truly awesome national anthem they deserve. The Theme from ‘Star Wars’ would be a vast improvement. For starters, there are no words, which eliminates the risk that Roseanne Barr will ever attempt to sing it at a baseball match almost entirely. Imagine the Olympics - the American relay team standing astride the podium as the opening notes of the Theme from Star Wars blares from the speakers. It’d be a moment that was beyond patriotic. Granted, this whole thing could be about revenge. Truth be told, the Presi-

dent has long hated the book, ‘Men are from Mars, Women Are From Venus’, ever since his first wife Ivana made him read it as part of couples counselling, and he’s finally decided to do something about it. All that baloney about different communication styles and varied emotional needs – a total and complete hoax. I felt much the same way about ‘The Bridges of Madison County’ although, in my case, I managed to restrain myself from responding militarily. There’s always the possibility that this is an elaborate ploy to facilitate a meeting with Han Solo. Han has the kind of can-do attitude they like on Planet Trump and, much like the Donald, runs his own (albeit slightly dodgy) business. Han Solo always knows what to say and would be totally awesome on Twitter. Plus, the Millennium Falcon is a lot cooler than Air Force One. I just hope he doesn’t go overboard. After all, the Donald has a terrible habit of naming things after himself. Although his motives could be pure – perhaps he’s planning to go into exile on another planet in a bid to avoid Robert Mueller. Who knows where this thing will end up? Whether Space Force will join Clive Palmer’s plan to build ‘Titanic II’ in the graveyard of dopey ideas, only time will tell. My only fear is that this may be the first, albeit inevitable step, towards the President becoming an intergalactic overlord. ‘Darth Trumper’ has a certain ring to it. Then again, so does ‘Jabba the Trump’ and there’s a greater physical resemblance. I shudder to think. And if all this seems too much, just remember – at least in space, no one can hear you scream. stuart@stuartmccullough.com

Elimination final for Edi-Asp DIVISION ONE

By Brodie Cowburn EDITHVALE ASPENDALE will be forced to play in an elimination final this weekend, after their loss to Sorrento in the final round of the season saw them drop down to fourth place. Both sides traded blows in a tight first half, with just four points separating the two sides at the main break. Things remained close in the third term, and with scores level going into the final quarter the game looked set to go down to the wire. In tough conditions, the Sharks kicked ahead and held on to claim a hard fought victory at Regents Park, with the final score reading 9.9 (57) to 9.13 (67). Michael Meehan performed valiantly for Edi-Asp with three goals, while Daniel Grant was at his silky best for Sorrento playing off half back. The win saw Sorrento finish on top of the ladder and earn a first week bye for finals. The result is a devastating one for the Eagles, who had been in second place since 24 June before slipping down to third last weekend. They will now have to play off against Frankston YCW in a do or die clash at Chelsea Reserve on Saturday afternoon. Their place in third spot has been taken by Pines, who had their incredible form rewarded with a second chance in finals. They overtook the Eagles by beating Bonbeach at Eric Bell Reserve.

Shark bite: The Eagles got their wings clipped when a loss to Sorrento cost them their double chance in finals. Picture: Andrew Hurst

Bonbeach kept touch with Pines early, but after quarter time the game became a one sided affair. Pines piled on the goals to open up a big lead over Bonbeach, with Aaron

Edwards contributing seven majors to the scoreboard. Edwards’ haul saw him finish on top of the goal kicking leaderboard for the year, with a total of 59.

The final siren sounded with Pines well and truly ahead 17.12 (114) to 8.7 (55). Pines will go on to play Mt Eliza in the Qualifying Final at Alexandra Park on Sunday afternoon. Mt Eliza will not enter finals with the momentum boosting win they may have been hoping for, after they played out a gruelling draw against Frankston YCW. The Stonecats looked the better side in the first half, and led by 16 points at the half time break. Mt Eliza went on to chip back the lead, but still trailed by a couple of goals heading into the final term. The Redlegs held their opponents to just one goal in the last quarter, and were able to fight back to bring scores level. They fought back admirably, but ultimately were made to share the points with the Stonecats as the siren sounded with both sides on level terms. The final score read 7.8 (50) to 7.8 (50). Both sides worked hard and will be feeling bruised heading into their finals clashes this weekend. Around the grounds, Frankston Bombers took on Rosebud in a dead rubber clash at Greg Beck Oval. With Rosebud sitting near the bottom of the ladder and Frankston

Bombers eliminated from finals contention, both sides had little more than pride to play for. Rosebud went into the first break with a one goal lead, but were quickly outmuscled by their Frankston opponents. The Bombers put on a particularly impressive display in the final term, as they held Rosebud to just one behind for the quarter. It was an emphatic victory for the Bombers, as they claimed the win 13.14 (92) to 8.6 (54). The final game for the round saw Mornington host bottom of the ladder Seaford at Alexandra Park. Although it had been a frustrating year for the Tigers, they got off to a strong start and went into the first break with a narrow four point lead. The Bulldogs weren’t willing to back down without a fight though, as they fought back to bring the game back to level terms at the half time break. Seaford battled to work their way back into the lead, and held a seven point advantage heading into the final term. Although they entered the final quarter full of momentum, Mornington eventually overran the Tigers to claim a scrappy win to close out their year. Jackson Calder booted three goals to help his Bulldogs side to a 12.14 (86) to 11.11 (77) win. The victory caps off a year of improvement for Mornington, as they finished the year with five wins.

Red Hill triumph in tricky weather DIVISION TWO

By Brodie Cowburn RED HILL have battled through rain, hail, and shine to claim an emphatic win over Karingal in a difficult qualifying final. Both sides travelled to Somerville Recreation Reserve coming off wins in the last round of the home and away season, and a win would book either side a spot in the semi final against Dromana. Both sides endured a difficult start as strong winds made it difficult to hit the scoreboard. The first quarter saw just two goals scored, one for each side, as both team struggled to adapt to the conditions. Red Hill were the better side early on, but they failed to make the Bulls pay, as they only kicked one goal from their first 17 entries into the forward 50. Things didn’t get much easier in the second term either, as the rain turned to hail for a short period of time. Red Hill persisted through the pain, as they kicked away to an eight point lead at the half time break. After half time the Bulls got within reach, but Red Hill again kicked away and established a buffer. Chris Irving turned it on for his side in the third term to help Red Hill stay ahead, but with just seven points separating the two sides at three-quarter time it was all still to play for. The Bulls let themselves down in the final term with poor kicking going forward, as they added just two more behind to their tally. Red Hill coasted through the final quarter with ease, and put the game to bed with four

unanswered majors. Zach Vines put the exclamation point on a big win for his side, capping off the game with a screamer of a mark inside the forward 50 with just minutes left to play. In wet and wild weather, Red Hill earned their chance to play off for a Grand Final spot with a convincing win 8.11 (59) to 3.9 (27). Red Hill will now face off against Dromana to determine who will claim the first spot in the Grand Final. They will enter the clash full of confidence, as they were the only side to beat Dromana during the home and away season. The match will take place at Thomas Barclay Oval at 2pm Saturday. Karingal will get a chance at redemption next week when they take on Langwarrin in the Preliminary Final to keep their premiership hopes alive. That match will take place at RJ Rowley Reserve at 2pm Sunday. Langwarrin earned their chance to play Karingal after a hard earned victory over Chelsea in the elimination final. The Kangaroos only just snuck into finals, but made the most of the opportunity by holding off the fast finishing Seagulls at RJ Rowley Reserve. Chelsea lost their double chance when they fell to Hastings in the last round of the home and away season, meaning they are now eliminated from contention. The final score read 9.15 (69) to 8.9 (57).

Macleod to step down at season’s end SOCCER

By Craig MacKenzie JUST before 5pm on Saturday 8 September Gus Macleod will walk off the pitch for the last time as head coach of Langwarrin. That moment will mark the end of a journey that started in pre-season training for the 1999 season and took 20 years to complete. In all Macleod will have been at the helm for 447 league games, a feat that seems destined to stand the test of time. He’s won multiple promotions and league championships with Langwarrin, Dockerty Cups with Fawkner and Green Gully and a State League Cup and Division One title with Springvale City. And every step along the way at Lawton Park Macleod has had his assistant and friend Neil Collyer at his side and for most of the way Robert Mathieson junior, Robert Mathieson senior, Peter Tuckett, Dave Robson, Jim Morrison and Billy Bentley who have been integral parts of Langwarrin’s coaching staff. Robson, Morrison and Bentley are no longer actively involved and it’s unlikely that current members of the senior coaching staff will stay. The official announcement of Macleod’s pending departure was made last week and included recognition of the contributions of Ronnie Whitton, Victor Shive, Ritchie May, Kevin “Squizzy” Taylor, club technical director Steve Fisher, goalkeeping coach Chris Jones, major sponsor Greg Kilner and club president John Heskins. “I left training last week with mixed emotions – a bit of pride, a bit of sadness – but the time was right because I don’t have the energy to build what we’ll need for next season,” Macleod said. “You’ve got to finish in the top six next year to stay in the NPL for 2020 with the bottom six going into a new VPL1 league.” Macleod won’t recommend a successor nor will he take on another role at the club as he wants the new coach to have a fresh start and a free reign. “It’s a big job and I would think it probably needs someone younger, someone with the appropriate accreditation (at least a B licence) who has NPL experience and can attract NPL players to the club.” No current local senior coach ticks all these boxes and the name most often linked with the position in the past few days is that of Oakleigh Cannons gaffer and Frankston South resident Chris Taylor. His refusal to comment has fuelled speculation that the two-time Victorian Premier League Coach of the Year is weighing up his options. Stuart Munro and Aaron Healey have also been mooted as candidates and a five-member working committee will conduct interviews. Another candidate to emerge over the weekend is “Squizzy” Taylor, coach of Langy’s under-20s who has won a championship at that level with Bentleigh Greens. Taylor holds a B licence, is well connected in NPL circles and would not baulk at the playing budget likely to be part of the deal given that Langy has operated throughout 2018 on the lowest budget in NPL2 East. In State 4 South news Baxter inched clear of the relegation zone on goal difference after Saturday’s 2-2 home draw with Dandenong Warriors.

Dandenong had the better of the first half but Baxter bossed the second period. Critics claim Dandenong is an academy masquerading as a community club and the close skills and ball movement of the visitors were highlighted in the opening 45 minutes but once Baxter turned the game into a physical contest it was rewarded. Josh Bowen took advantage of hesitation in the Baxter defence to slide in and opening the scoring in the 10th minute. A near post header from Tom Cikoratic drew a superb response from Baxter keeper James Foster in the 29th minute and three minutes later Baxter striker Mark Pagliarulo held off a defender but sent his low shot wide. Bowen made it 2-0 in the 34th minute after Baxter gave the ball away and the attacking midfielder was sent clear striking the ball low past advancing Foster from 10 metres. A high ball into the Dandenong area in the 38th minute was controlled by Pagliarulo who turned his marker and threw himself onto the ground and referee Ian Stead pointed to the spot. Pagliarulo had no trouble converting and Baxter had a lifeline but it took a well-timed sliding tackle from Stuart McKenzie in the 44th minute to stop Ahmed Habeeb from effecting a tap-in and restoring the visitors’ two-goal cushion. Four minutes into the second half scores were level. Tim Lee drove the ball in low from the right and Adrian Pace controlled it then curled a left-foot strike from just outside the area in off the far post. In the 66th minute a solo run by Ben Meiklem ended with a low left-foot shot that Dandenong keeper Chaiwat Koythong did will to parry and a stunning 30-metre Bowen effort crashed off the crossbar in the 70th minute.

Shortly after Koythong made his best save of the contest diving low to his left to get a hand to Pagliarulo’s quickly taken free-kick that was destined for the far corner. The contest ended for Dandenong central midfielder Mohsen Hassani a few minutes later when he was yellow carded for dissent for the second time in 10 minutes. In the end Baxter was left ruing its inability to claim all three points in its ongoing battle to avoid the drop. In State 5 South news a last gasp equaliser broke Somerville Eagles’ hearts as the local side was forced to settle for a 4-4 draw with lowly Knox United at Somerville Secondary College on Saturday. An error-prone defence proved Somerville’s undoing as it missed a glorious opportunity to ramp up its promotion push. Somerville started brightly and scored two quickfire goals with player-coach David Greening finishing well from a Louis Griffiths cross in the 2nd minute then converting from the spot after being felled in the area seven minutes later. The first of four goals for Knox from calamitous defending came in the 26th minute with two free headers in the box allowing Gerard Vincent to make it 2-1. Greening then grabbed his third following a superb through ball from Harry Chapman in the 38th minute but right on half-time the lively Robert Taylor found space in the area and the former Richmond and Doncaster Rovers midfielder finished well to make it 3-2. Just 30 seconds into the second half Matt Swanson was dispossessed and Max Khalaf made it 3-3. The rest of the game was a scrappy affair but in the 69th minute a piece of magic from Joel Wade

after beating two defenders looked to have won the game for the Eagles. But in the final minute a long ball downfield from Knox keeper Daniel Stapelfeldt bounced through the entire Somerville midfield and defence and Taylor was on hand to finish calmly and send the Knox faithful into raptures. “It’s a disappointing result and the performance today was probably our worst of the season but that’s football,” Greening said. “Fair play to Knox because they came here and were the better team but to concede at the death like that was a huge kick in the teeth after we thought we had scraped an undeserved win.” In NPLW news Southern United was at home to Bayside United on Sunday as we went to print but there was doubt as to whether the fixture would go ahead. Earlier in the day the under 12s, under-14s, under-16s and under-19s games were called off due to adverse weather and the condition of Monterey Reserve. Next weekend’s games: FRIDAY, 8.30pm: Doncaster Rovers v Peninsula Strikers (Anderson Park). SATURDAY 3pm: Eastern Lions v Langwarrin (Gardiners Creek Reserve), Mornington v Caulfield Utd Cobras (Dallas Brooks Park), Skye Utd v Whitehorse Utd (Skye Recreation Reserve), South Yarra v Seaford Utd (Fawkner Park), Baxter v Keysborough (Baxter Park), Somerville v Bunyip District (Tyabb Central Recreation Reserve), Aspendale v Lyndale Utd (Jack Grut Reserve).

Karate students kick it at Nationals PETER Hollowood Martial Arts, in Mornington, had an astounding 21 athletes represent Victoria at the Australian National Karate Championships over the weekend of Friday 3 August. The representatives had trained all year for the national championships in Caloundra, QLD and their hard-work was duly repaid with five of them claiming individual gold medals in Kumite, a form of point sparring. On top of their individual performances, the Mornington dojo athletes claimed a further five team gold medals and a silver team medal across the competition. Sensei Peter Hollowood, who is also a state coach, said the “fantastic results” came as no surprise with the amount of training his students put in throughout the year. “My athletes train at the highest level and deserve all the recognition for their hard work,” he said. “They all went up as a team and competed as a team. It was a good tournament up there and they were all very excited about their results as they’ve been training for such a long time.” Sensei Peter’s son, Dean Hollowood, 23, was one of the five athletes to claim an individual gold medal. Dean claimed gold in the Senior Men’s (67kg) competition as well as a team gold medal for his performance at the nationals, and has been selected to compete at the World Championships in Madrid, Spain in November. Dean will be travelling to Chile in September

for a competition and then off to Noumea for a National training camp prior to the World Championships. “He’s missed out on four World Championships but he’s stuck with it and finally broken through,” Sensei Peter said. “It’s great to see the hard work payed off.” The Mornington dojo claimed a further four gold medals. Aaliyah Zuniga won the Female Cadet (14-15 years) and earned a Team Gold medal; Ally Lourensz won the Female 12-13 years and a Team Gold medal; Mason Riley won the Junior Male (16-17 years) and a Team Silver medal; and Alex Steer won the Cadet Male (14-15 years) and a Team Gold medal. Athletes from the dojo won another 11 bronze and silver individual medals, with some of them having their first attempt at the national competition. Alex Hutchison won a Team Gold medal and two individual silver medals; Zac Dean won two silver medals and a bronze medal; Mathew Riley won a silver medal; Lily White won a silver medal; Ceara Taylor won a bronze medal; Ignatius Stow won a bronze medal; Nathan Pool won a bronze medal; and Erin Walsh won a bronze medal. Sensei Peter said it was a great achievement for all involved, with the dojo’s representatives already talking about next year’s national championships. Ben Triandafillou

Noonan welcomes training track upgrade VICTORIAN Racing Minister Martin Pakula announced on Thursday 16 August that $1.38 million of funding will be granted to the Mornington Racecourse to upgrade their sandbased training track. The upgrade, which is currently underway, will see a move to a synthetic surface after 12 years of having a sand track to help allow for consistent training year-round. Mornington-based racehorse trainer Tony Noonan said the transition to a synthetic track has had mixed reactions from the trainers, but the general consensus was positive. “It’s a radical change to what we’re used to,” Noonan said. “That always makes it tough, but I think the majority of trainers are in favour of it.” The synthetic track has been a tried and proven surface at racecourses across Australia, with most notably Pakenham also using it for racing as well as jump outs and trials. Noonan views the move from the sand to the synthetic track as a modernised version of when training tracks moved from the grass to the sand, and believes that it’s another step in the right direction. “Grass is very expensive, so that’s when sand was bought in to offset

that, but this is a modernisation of the sand track and environmentally it’s a better answer I would think,” Noonan said. “In the winter we got consistent rain and [the sand track] worked very well but when we got heavy rain it turned very quickly. In the summer it can get very dry and hard unless you apply a large amount of water to it, but of course that then becomes a real environmental issue. “We just can’t afford to be spending a lot of water on those sorts of facilities when we’ve got an alternative.” Noonan believes the sand track has “done its job” and only sees the move to the synthetic as a positive. “It’s great for us,” he said. “Not every track and training centre in Victoria has one, so the fact that we race on a polytrack (synthetic) at Pakenham, it’s got to be at our advantage as our horses become accustomed to working on it and then racing on it.” “Over a long period of time, [Mornington] has been a very successful training centre and this is only going to compliment it even further.” Getting the message out: Racing Minister Martin Pakula speaks to media after announcing the funding for Mornington Racing Club.

Whateley primed for pro debut, peninsula card set PENINSULA Boxer Jason Whateley is set to make his professional debut, after racking up 98 amateur fights, on Friday 7 September at the Melbourne Pavilion. Having most recently claimed a silver medal at the Gold Coast Commonwealth Games in April, his coach Marcos Amado, believes Whateley is more than ready to take the next step. “He’s reached the highest possible level in the amateur ranks and he’s now ready to do the same in the pros,” he said. “The longer amount of rounds will make a massive difference for him.” It’s been a long wait for Whateley to find an opponent for his professional debut with many boxers wary of what he brings to the table, but the five-time victor Navosa Ioata has taken up the challenge. Amado said: “It’s not an easy fight, but he’s definitely up for it.” Whateley will join fellow Mornington Peninsula boxers Jayde Mitchell, who will be headlining the card against Kerry Foley, and Kane Watts, who is yet to announce an opponent, on the night. Whateley will then be looking to back-up his performance two weeks later on Sunday 23 September at the Melbourne Pavilion, with an opponent yet to be announced. Also ready to get in the ring on the Sunday night are fellow Peninsula Boxers Lachie Higgins and Jai

Alexander, who will fight in the main event. Higgins also hasn’t locked in an opponent yet but Alexander is set to face the unbeaten Beijing Olympian, Luke Boyd, for the WBA Oceania Super Bantamweight Title and a world rating. “It’s going to be a great fight with Jai now at an eight win, zero loss record,” Amado said. “They’re both strong, aggressive power punchers so it will really be the best man wins on the night.” Higgins is also set to go up a weight division to super-middleweight which, according to Amado, is probably a bit over due for a man who’s six foot three (190cm). Amado said that the boxers are all training well together and he’s confident they can all put in a solid performance. “It’s a hard call to make considering everyone is confident heading into their fights but they’re all putting in and I’m confident they’ll show it on the night,” he said.

Sharks crunch through finals, Gulls take opening match BASKETBALL

By Ben Triandafillou THE Southern Peninsula Sharks Big V championship side continue to progress through the finals series with a two-point victory over the Waverley Falcons in round two on Sunday 12 August. The Sharks have made their way from fifth on the normal season ladder to the preliminary final where they’ll be taking on the top-rated side Knox Raiders on Saturday 18 August. Southern Peninsula Sharks basketball operations manager Lucas Allen said the side have overcome similar circumstances already this season and will be looking to do the same against Knox. “It’ll be the same circumstances as they have faced in their first couple of games, lose and you’re out, but they’re pretty confident heading in,” Allen said. Allen said their win over the Falcons (76-78) was a tough battle with the Sharks’ women showing real determination to break through. “They got a bit of a lead and were able to maintain it until the final whistle,” he said. “It came down to the last couple of plays. Jaz Shelley came up big and hit a three (point shot), and the women did well to defend in the dying seconds of the game to make sure they couldn’t get a shot off. “It was a strong win.” Jaz Shelley has also been selected to join the under-18 Australian team which will compete at the FIBA Asia under-18 Championships, in hopes to qualify for the under-19 FIBA World Cup. In the Men’s division one, Chelsea Gulls scored a crucial 10-point victory over the Western Port Steelers (94-104) away from home on Saturday 11 August. The Gulls claimed the first of the

best-of-three semi-final and will get the advantage of having the final two matches played at their home court. Western Port Steelers basketball operations manager, Tyler Molloy, still held hope that the Steelers could turn the result around. “We turned the ball over a fair bit more than we had in previous matches and one of their guys (Mitch Riggs) ended up shooting seven from 10 three-pointers which we didn’t really expect,” he said. “We’ve looked back at some game

Frankston Times 20 August 2018

tapes and will focus more on defence and hopefully we can score two [wins] on the road. “It’s no easy feat but we’re confident we can grab one of the games and then anything can happen from there.” Chelsea Gulls head coach Peter Caspersz was stoked to get the win away from home, and said that he wasn’t surprised to see Mitch Riggs play as well as he did. “He did shoot out of his skin (seven three-pointers from his last seven

attempts) but he’s a SEABL player so it was no surprise to see him shoot so well,” he said. “It’d be great if he can convert it again on Saturday.” Caspersz said that he expects the Steelers to come into the final two matches with “something up their sleeve” but is confident that they can put another win on the board. “I’m hoping that we can wrap it up on the Saturday and put it to bed,” he said. “We know we can do better [than last game]. We let them shoot at about

53 per cent so that’s something we’re definitely working on and we’ll try and shut them down a bit better this time around.” The winner of the Chelsea Gulls/ Western Port Steelers semi-final will play the winner of the Keysborough Cougars/Shepparton Gators matchup. The Gators won the first of three matches at home but will head to Rowville Secondary College (Cougars home court) for the remaining two games.
