Dogs ban stays put Neil Walker neil@baysidenews.com.au DOGS will not be freed to roam along Frankston foreshore after councillors voted against a trial of a leash-free area between Frankston Pier and the Olivers Hill boat ramp. Councillors decided at last week’s monthly public council meeting against a four-month trial from December to allow pet pooches to be off leash on the beach and a plan to test allowing dogs to be walked by owners on leads within central Frankston. Cr Glenn Aitken brought a jar of dog excrement into council chamber picked up from the nature strip in front of his home to graphically illustrate his opposition to allowing dogs into central Frankston streets. “I have the hard evidence here, hygienically sealed,” Cr Aitken said. “Most people will clean up after themselves but there will be some who won’t.” He also voiced concerns about dogs attacking people and other dogs. “Dogs’ behaviour is unpredictable … most animals are unpredictable.” Cr Colin Hampton also opposed relaxing council bylaws to allow dogs to roam freer. “I’ve seen problems with dogs attacking other dogs on the beach,” he said. “Unfortunately not all dog owners are responsible.” Cr Steve Toms spoke in favour of allowing dogs into Frankston’s central business district for economic reasons since people “are spending their money elsewhere” at shops where dogs are welcome. “I support dogs back into the CBD. It’s something I campaigned on in my election campaign last year.” Cr Toms played down fears that Frankston Council would be partially responsible for any dog attacks in the city

centre if a trial was introduced. “In legal advice that we have received from council’s lawyers, Maddocks, they have informed of the fact that council would indeed not be liable should a dog attack take place.” He said there are “hundreds” of dogs in Frankston and attacks are infrequent and are “isolated” in nature. Crs Sandra Mayer and Michael O’Reilly also supported the council officer report recommending a trial for dogs off leash along the foreshore and on leash in central Frankston. Cr Mayer unsuccessfully argued for dogs to be allowed into central Frankston when she was mayor in 2015. Cr O’Reilly, a postman, said he had been “four times in the past two years”, mostly by “little fluff ball” dogs, but he said responsible owners should be allowed to walk dogs along the beach, especially in the winter months. He noted other bayside municipalities have designated off-leash areas along beaches. Cr Kris Bolam said there is “no evidence” that allowing dogs into the city centre will boost the local economy. “My opposition to dogs in the CBD is historically known — as a private citizen I made my views known.” Cr Quinn McCormack, Cr Lilian O’Connor and mayor Cr Brian Cunial also opposed allowing dogs to roam on beaches and in the city centre. The debate was instigated again by a mandatory review of council’s Domestic Animal Management Plan required every four years. A proposed 24/7 curfew for cats was also voted down. Cats in the Frankston region should be confined to homes “from sunset to sunrise”, according to council bylaws.

Going nowhere: Sheriff’s officers clamped this car in the joint operation. Picture: Supplied

Joint op’s fines time A JOINT operation in Langwarrin by police and sheriff’s officers, Saturday 12 August, led to 998 warrants being executed bringing in fines of more than $300,000. The police, from Somerville Highway Patrol and Frankston and Carrum Downs police stations, set up an automatic number plate recognition site on Cranbourne Rd. Two vehicles were clamped on the spot after their drivers had avoided several opportunities to pay fines or enter into payment plans. Police dealt with 28 traffic offences, including a drink driver who blew 0.112 per cent – at 9am in the morning. Three drivers were detected drug driving, 10 were unauthorised to drive – being unlicensed, disqualified or suspended – and six were for driving unregistered vehicles. Police charged three drivers and

impounded three vehicles – one for drunk driving and the others for driving while suspended. Sergeant Peter Martin, of Somerville Highway Patrol, said: “These joint operations are an essential part of our approach to policing and in holding people to account for their actions – outstanding sheriff’s warrants don’t just “go away”. “Those with warrants outstanding will eventually be dealt with. I suggest to anyone that may have outstanding fine warrants to contact their local sheriff’s office and make arrangements to enter a payment plan, rather than being dealt with at the roadside. “And, from a policing point of view, if you don’t have a licence, your car is unregistered or you are impaired by drugs or alcohol, then don’t drive – we may not get you every time, but with our ongoing operations we’ll get you eventually.”

THE rider of a Yamaha R1 sports motorbike performed a “mono” near the Bungower Rd on-ramp on Peninsula Link, Moorooduc, by lifting the front wheel. After slowing down for the speed camera at Eramosa Rd, he accelerated to 173 kph, 9pm, Thursday 10 August. Somerville Highway Patrol police manning their radar said the motorcycle then accelerated again to more than 200 kph approaching Golf Links Rd, with the windy weather visibly blowing the bike around. The 25-year-old rider, of Skye, was intercepted and is expected to be charged on summons with driving at a dangerous speed, improper use (loss of traction of the front wheel), and exceeding 100 kph. His motorcycle was impounded for 30 days with a release fee of $1032.

Search for driver POLICE are searching for a driver after a series of incidents where a car was driven erratically, causing many collisions in the Frankston area last week. The purple 2009 Nissan Micra was seen on Ashleigh Avenue and Karingal Drive before travelling along the Peninsula Link and then being abandoned in Baxter, 6.40pm, Monday 14 August. Police urge anyone with information to contact Crime Stoppers 1800 333 000 or submit a confidential report at crimestoppersvic.com.au online.


Pay offer rejected again by workers Paving the way: Reconstruction works underway in Young Street earlier this year. Picture: Gary Sissons

Traders’ plea for state help Neil Walker neil@baysidenews.com.au TRADERS frustrated over delays to a revamp of Young St in central Frankston have implored the state government to help out financially since the project was initially slated to finish in May. Federal Dunkley Liberal MP Chris Crewther has forwarded a letter to Labor Transport Minister Jacinta Allan signed by several business owners who say they have suffered a downturn in trade since foot traffic past stores has fallen during the Young St works. The letter in part asks that “affected traders be granted just financial compensation and relief from the original completion date in May 2017 to the final end date”. The joint letter — co-signed by trad-

ers, Frankston deputy mayor Steve Toms and councillors Glenn Aitken, Quinn McCormack, Kris Bolam, Sandra Mayer and Lillian O’Connor — demands “a guaranteed locked-in end date for the project be given” to give certainty to traders. VicRoads and the state government have revised the Young St precinct works end date as 27 October but businesses fear more delays could have an impact on Christmas time trading for the second year in succession. The plea for financial support from the state government comes after Frankston Council pledged to give businesses who can prove a 30 per cent drop in turnover over 12 months a oneoff $750 payment. “In speaking to council, I can say that the shop closure rate in Young St is no higher than prior to the roadworks,

but the shop front opening rate is much higher,” Frankston Labor MP Paul Edbrooke said. “The community asked for a rejuvenation of the Young St precinct and that is what I am delivering and for that, I absolutely make no apologies. “We are getting it done in Frankton and for Frankston.” The Young St revamp is part of a $63 million rejuvenation of Frankston train station and its surrounds. The need to move underground electrical cabling in Young St and handle asbestos in Telstra pits with care have been reasons for delays previously given by VicRoads. The roads authority is working with contractor firm Seymour White on the “more welcoming civic space” along Young St to include new paving and improved street lighting.

A MAJORITY of staff at Frankston Council voted down a pay offer last week amid an ongoing stand-off between employees and council management over a new enterprise bargaining agreement. A vote held last Monday (14 August) saw 386 council employees vote against a proposed 1.4 per cent pay rise and 275 vote to accept the pay deal. It is the second time workers have rejected the proposed new EBA. Australian Services Union branch executive president Michelle Jackson praised the solidarity of council staff who “are holding firm and refusing to be short changed” by a pay increase lower than the annual consumer price index rise, also known as the cost of living. “No other metropolitan council is offering 1.4 per cent. Frankston is offering the lowest pay increase in the metropolitan area,” Ms Jackson said. “Most other councils are 2 per or higher.” She noted the pay offer is effectively “a pay cut” since it is below cost of living increases at a time Reserve Bank of Australia governor Philip Lowe is urging workers to push for pay rises “for the good of the economy”. Union members have taken industrial action in recent months — including a refusal to process fines on specific days — as the pay dispute drags on.

The ASU notes council CEO Dennis Hovenden received a near 10 per cent pay rise in 2015. The mayor Cr Brian Cunial said in March this year that the CEO declined a pay increase offered by councillors as part of a performance review. “The CEO’s total remuneration package will remain at $325,000, resulting in a 3.2 per cent average annual increase since commencing as CEO at Frankston City Council in October 2012,” a media release in March stated. It is understood that councillors are due to talk about the CEO’s performance and pay this month as part of a scheduled review. Mr Hovenden said last week “it is disappointing that the revised agreement has not been accepted by a majority of employees”. “We appreciate and thank employees for taking the opportunity to cast their vote on this matter,” he said. “We are reconsidering all of our options before going back to negotiations with EBA representatives.” Ms Jackson said the ASU has asked council management to meet with the union again and may ask its members to vote “to escalate industrial action” if an agreement on pay and conditions cannot be reached.

Cop vs firey: Battle for Frankston Neil Walker neil@baysidenews.com.au A serving Victoria Police officer will face off against a former firefighter in what is likely to be a tight race to win the marginal seat of Frankston at next year’s state election. Frankston police station commander Senior Sergeant Michael Lamb won Liberal Party preselection on Saturday 5 August to try to unseat incumbent Labor MP Paul Edbrooke next November. Mr Edbrooke, a Mt Eliza resident, was a Country Fire Authority firefighter for 13 years before his election as a state MP in 2014. Senior Sergeant Lamb saw off a challenge from Liberal hopefuls Darrel Taylor, a former Frankston councillor and mayor, and financial adviser Alex Screen to win preselection in the first round of internal party membership voting. The police officer is a Frankston resident and is president of the Frankston YCW Football Netball Club. “As a father, I understand the concerns of families in the Frankston community with the scourge of the drug ice,” Mr Lamb said in a statement provided by the Liberal Party’s head office in Melbourne. “After working as a frontline policeman for over 31 years, I have witnessed firsthand the consequences of violent crime on victims.” Mr Edbrooke won the seat of Frankston from former Liberal turned independent MP Geoff Shaw at the 2014 state election getting over the line against Liberal candidate Sean Armi-

stead by just 336 votes after distribution of preferences, a 0.5 per cent margin. Labor and Premier Daniel Andrews ousted the former Coalition state government under Denis Napthine from power after just one term in office, initially under ex-premier Ted Baillieu’s who resigned in 2013. Mr Edbrooke’s wafer-thin 0.5 per cent margin is in one of four swinging “sand belt” electorates along the Frankston line — the others being Carrum, Mordialloc and Bentleigh — seen as crucial to winning government. Carrum and Bentleigh are held by

Labor my margins under 1 per cent. Tim Richardson has a 2.1 per margin in Mordialloc. Former Carrum MP Donna Bauer hopes to win preselection again to try to retake the seat for the Liberal Party from Labor MP Sonya Kilkenny. Gandhi Bevinakoppa and Carmella Monger are also Liberal candidates for preselection in Carrum. Asher Judah was preselected in Bentleigh earlier this month by the Liberal Party to contest the seat against Labor MP Nick Staikos.

Police patrol Boy ‘forced to steal’ AN 18-YEAR-OLD Carrum Downs man has been charged with robbery, theft and failing to appear over outstanding warrants after allegedly robbing a youth on a bus in Seaford and then, a week later, forcing another youth to steal jeans for him at a Frankston shopping centre. The man will appear at Frankston Magistrates’ Court, Wednesday 23 August. Detective Senior Constable Darren Paxton, of Frankston’s Embona Armed Robbery Taskforce, said the offender and three friends boarded the bus with the 17-year-old at Carrum and, en route, requested use of his mobile phone, 7.30pm, Sunday 30 July. The youth handed over his phone but, when the bus approached his stop on Railway Pd, Seaford, asked for it back. The offender allegedly refused and said that if the youth didn’t get off he would “shank him”. He then demanded the youth’s backpack which was handed over. The youth later reported the incident to police. Police allege the same offender coerced a 15-year-old into stealing items of clothing for him at Bayside shopping centre, 4.30pm, Saturday 5 August. Detective Paxton said the 18-yearold, accompanied by two brothers aged 16 and 17 and a 19-year-old woman, approached the Frankston boy in the food court. The offender intimidated the boy into agreeing to steal a pair of jeans for him and then walked with him around the store with him to choose

a pair. The others waited outside. The boy did as he was told: stole the jeans and handed them over, but, instead of letting him go, the group walked him to a quiet area and stole his phone, watch, shoes, jacket and backpack containing a spare pair of pants. The boy was given his phone back after the girl intervened. Detective Paxton said the centre’s CCTV was “helpful in identifying the alleged offenders and apprehending them”. The 18-year-old was charged with robbery, theft, and a range of outstanding warrants, including failing to appear at court. His 16-yearold accomplice, of Hastings, was charged with robbery, as well as committing various offences while on bail. These included allegedly assaulting a bus driver in Young St, Frankston, 7.20pm, 18 July. The youth slapped the driver, 45, knocking off his glasses. He was due to appear at Frankston Magistrates’ Court but allegedly refused to attend. Detectives have not yet received a new court date.

True grit AN elderly Frankston woman showed plenty of fighting spirit when she challenged a burglar in her Cranbourne Rd house and chased him outside, 4am, Sunday 13 August. The man had earlier entered the 90-year-old woman’s garage and rummaged through her car, then used a jemmy bar to force a bedroom window and open a sliding door into the dining room.

Deception charges A 19-YEAR-OLD Seaford man has been charged with two counts of obtaining property by deception and drug-related offences after eight vehicles were broken into at Seaford, overnight Thursday 10 August. Police believe he was one of a group of offenders who smashed drivers’ side windows stealing electrical items, mobile phones, credit cards, and even a small stereo system. In one case a GPS device was handled and left behind. The man was later allegedly seen on a Frankston service station’s CCTV using a credit card, allegedly stolen from one of the cars, to buy petrol. An 18-year-old woman with him was also charged with obtaining property by deception. The man has been remanded in custody to appear at Frankston Magistrates’ Court, 3 October. The woman was bailed to appear at the court at the same time.

Dolphins prepped for VFL

Animal cruelty concerns RSPCA ANIMAL cruelty seems to be on the rise in the Frankston area, according to the RSPCA. Frankston has been ranked fifth out of 79 Victorian council areas for reports of animal abuse in the 2016-17 financial year according to RSPCA figures released last week, 20th on a per capita basis. Concerns about the welfare of animals totalled 382 in Frankston among 10,180 cruelty reports across the state. RSPCA Victoria chief executive officer Dr Liz Walker said the animal welfare organisation needs to direct its education and enforcement efforts to the regions that need it most. “This year, RSPCA Victoria has started working more closely with local councils to understand local animal welfare issues, and to put in place tailored, local initiatives to educate owners and better protect animals.” Reports about animals not receiving basic care outnumbered all other offences reported. “It’s disappointing to see that, for the second year in a row, too many Victorian animals were reported to us because of concerns about very basic issues: food, water, shelter and vet care when they’re sick or injured. “These kinds of problems are so preventable,” Dr Walker said. “Whether it’s asking family or friends for support, seeking assistance from animal welfare groups, or surrendering animals to be rehomed, we would strongly encourage owners who aren’t keeping up

PREMIER Daniel Andrews visited Frankston last Wednesday (16 August) to congratulate the Frankston Football Club on its reinstatement to the VFL club ranks. The Premier met Frankston Dolphins general manager Gary Buckenara, a former Hawthorn player, and operations manager Tina Bremert to praise them for their work in helping ensure the footy club could come out of voluntary administration. The club now has 1200 paid members, the second largest membership club in the VFL. Frankston Labor MP Paul Edbrooke said “losing the Dolphins was not an option”. “No one wins when local clubs lose. I’m proud that the government could help the Dolphins with their debt, and get them back on track to rejoin the VFL,” he said. “I am overjoyed that the club will playing some great footy in 2018 and I can’t wait to get out and support them.” The Premier also dropped in to Frankston Primary School to officially open a new $850,000 prep centre.

with the basics to seek help to care for their animals.” Reports received from Frankston included: 173 reports of animals with insufficient food, water or shelter 128 concerns about hygiene, grooming and housing conditions 88 reports of underweight animals 95 issues involving sick or injured animals not receiving vet treatment 41 concerns about animals being beaten or wounded (1,210 across Victoria) and 56 abandoned animals (1,186 around Victoria). “In most cases, concerns reported to us are quickly resolved by our Inspectors educating the owner or person in charge of the animals involved, and reminding them of their legal obligations to care for their animals,” Dr Walker said. “In some cases, a stronger response is needed: a notice to comply, seizing and taking an animal into protective custody, or – when all else fails – prosecuting.” Welfare concerns for dogs, cats and horses continued to make up the majority of issues reported to RSPCA Victoria. Of 382 reports received in Frankston: 244 involved dogs and puppies 87 involved cats and kittens and 25 involved horses. Last year, Frankston ranked eighth of 79 councils for animal cruelty reports, 32nd on a per capita basis.

Pokies losses continue to mount Neil Walker neil@baysidenews.com.au A STAGGERING $62 million was lost by punters on pokies in Kingston over 12 months according to figures released last month by Victoria’s gambling regulator. Victorian Commission for Gambling and Liquor Regulation data shows losses reached $62,408,098 for the 2016-17 financial year to the

end of June. The total was lost on 509 electronic gaming machines at nine venues throughout the municipality. Alliance for Gambling Reform director Tim Costello said pokies losses of $2.61 billion across the state showed it is time for politicians to step up and stem the flow of money being “drained” from communities. “This time last year we surged through $50 billion in total Victorian losses and in this 25th year of dan-

gerous pokies, another $2.61 billion of harm has been inflicted,” Mr Costello said in a statement. “Measured in 2016 dollars, we are now up to $67 billion in losses and if we keep this up for the next 25 years, these addictive devices will drain another $70 billion from victims.” This 2016-17 losses were down slightly on 2015-16’s total of $62,900,685 but were still high enough to seal Kingston’s place in the top ten of municipalities losing

money through pokies, coming in at ninth place. The Labor state government announced last week that venues “that earn the most from pokies” will pay more tax from August 2022 onwards. The tax revenue will be directed to Victoria’s Hospitals and Charities Fund, the Mental Health Fund, alcohol and drug treatment services and the Victorian Responsible Gambling Fund. “The price and tax rates that we

have announced are fairer and will secure important funding for health and community projects across Victoria,” Victorian Gaming and Liquor Regulation Minister Marlene Kairouz said. “Our pubs, clubs and hotels employ thousands of Victorians and this announcement will give them the certainty they need to plan and invest in the future of their local communities.” Venues earning above $6667 per machine each month on average will be taxed at higher rates.

Promenade plan

Hundreds of guns surrendered HUNDREDS of firearms have been handed in for registration, sale or destruction in Victoria in the first month of National Firearms Amnesty. As of the end of July, 751 firearms had been surrendered in Victoria. Other items handed in include swords, a crossbow, ammunition and imitation firearms. Victorians have until 30 September to surrender unregistered and unwanted firearms, ammunition and weapons to Licensed Firearms Dealers without fear of prosecution. Anyone surrendering firearms, weapons or ammunition during the amnesty should surrender to a licensed firearms dealer and not to local police. Explosives should not be surrendered during the amnesty. Any person wanting to dispose of explosives, including explosive ordnances, should contact WorkSafe. “Every unwanted or unregistered firearm or weapon that we can destroy or register is another step towards a safer Victoria,” Superintendent Paul Millett of the Licensing and Regulation Division said. “We are seeing people with unregistered firearms from deceased estates, those who have been given firearms by friends and relatives as well as existing licence holders all surrendering unwanted and unregistered firearms. “We encourage everyone to think about any firearms or weapons that they have around the house or in storage and to take action by surrendering them to a licensed firearm dealer.” Supt Millett said the illegal firearm market is complex “and the amnesty is just one of the ways we are reducing the number of unregistered firearms”.

FOOD will be available over summer at Point nepean from mobile vendors for a sixmonth trial being run by Parks Victoria. Picture: Keith Platt

Food trucks for Pt Nepean POINT Nepean is one of 11 national parks where food trucks will be allowed for a six-month trial. The summer trial in the Quarantine precinct will be followed next year by a winter trial starting in June. “The trial will provide an opportunity to test food and beverage services in appropriate parks without leaving a permanent footprint in the park,” Parks Victoria chief operating officer Simon Talbot said. “Mobile traders will need to meet certain criteria including environmental considerations, social benefits to the community and the ability to strategically align with Parks Victoria and the Victorian governments’ healthy choices guidelines.” Parks Victoria is

calling for mobile traders for expressions of interest to offer food and beverage services as part of a mobile food services trial. The trial licence term will be a maximum of six months from November this year to April 2018 for summer sites. Winter only sites will be available for three to six months starting 1 June 2018. Other parks in the trial are Baw Baw National Park, Lerderderg State Park, Maroondah Reservoir Park, the former Olinda Golf Course car park (adjacent to the National Rhododendron Garden), Silvan Reservoir, Westerfolds Park, Westgate Park, Yan Yean Reservoir Park, Yarra Bend Park and Yarra Ranges National Park.

THREE businesses will be relocated as part of the plan to elevate rail and build a promenade in Carrum to separate road from rail at level crossings. Three buildings will be demolished and two vacant blocks of land acquired off the Nepean Highway by the state government so the $50 million project can proceed next year. Beach Lane, a creative and artistic space for start-ups at 642 Nepean Highway, will have its century old building torn down alongside neighbouring businesses Face The Art, a cosmetic tattoo and eyeliner business, and Addie’s Hobbies, a model toys business. Beach Lane founder Georges McKail said the property acquisition is “problematic” but he did find out “about three months ago” that the business, established in 2015, may have to move premises. “It is what it is. I’ve just got to work out what the process is and what options may exist for Beach Lane.” The businessman said he will talk to the Level Crossing Removal Authority, Kingston Council and Carrum Labor MP Sonya Kilkenny about Beach Lane’s impending enforced move. He said he has spoken to Ms Kilkenny and “it is very early days” to decide whether the community space can find a place near the new promenade. Two vacant blocks of land will also be acquired and proposed apartment blocks will no longer be built at the site.

The birds are flying into oblivion Keith Platt keith@baysidenews.com.au OVER the past few decades there has been no shortage of reports about bird species being wiped out or their numbers facing rapid decline. Most often these reports involve the northern hemisphere and birds that have to navigate several countries to satisfy their migratory instincts. But speak to Max Burrows of the Mornington Peninsula branch of BirdLife Australia and what seems a problem half a world away becomes an event in our own backyard. It’s not that long ago bird watchers were confronted by the local extinction of the grey-crowned babbler. Probably not a bird on everyone’s easily identifiable list, but a loss that was sadly added to the 40 or so species of birds that have disappeared from around Frankston and on the Mornington Peninsula since the arrival of Europeans. In recent years the plight of the hooded plover has so captured hearts and minds that a friends group was formed and was able to exert enough pressure to have dogs banned from the plover’s ocean beach nesting grounds within the Mornington Peninsula National Park. The group’s members also monitor and build fences around plover nests, which are sometimes washed away during big swells and extra high tides. The peninsula is thought to be home for about 70 of the state’s 550 hooded plovers and this year saw 13 chicks fledged, more than in the

previous three breeding seasons. However, birds such as the scarlet robin, Bassian thrush, red-browed finch and Jacky Winter are on the decline throughout Frankston and the peninsula. Mr Burrows believes these birds find it difficult living near humans, either through loss of habitat or through predation by cats and foxes. He said French Island may be the only place where adequate numbers of scarlet robins survive because of the absence of foxes. Even birds that move on when land is cleared or altered have trouble finding an available home “because there

are other species already there�. “Jack Winters were regularly seen around this area in the 1980s but we haven’t had any reports since 2000,� Mr Burrows said. “A southern emu wren was spotted at Tootgarook last year, the first after 25 years. But we’re not likely to get many of the [declining] birds back.� Mr Burrows said BirdLife Australia’s rare bird project was researching birds that had been declining or subject to habitat loss since 2008. Seven species being focused on are the black-shouldered kite, Australian king-parrot, scarlet robin, Bassian thrush, eastern great egret, red-browed

finch and Jacky Winter. “We have already established that the grey-crowned babbler no longer occurs in this region and the scarlet robin is now mainly restricted to French Island, the southern emu wren now occurs in only a few localities and is rarely reported,� he stated in an article in the September Mornington Peninsula Birdlife magazine. However all is not lost, with recent sightings of the thought-tobe-threatened crested shrike-tit and the possibility that there are more of the notoriously shy Bassian thrushes around than have been reported. There still seem to be plenty of

eastern great egrets, although their numbers noticeably decline with the draining of wetlands. Birds such as king parrots, galahs, rainbow lorikeets and corellas are on the increase, although their numbers will be limited by the availability of nesting hollows. Mr Burrows said there were about 220 species of birds living or regularly visiting the peninsula. The 40 species lost since the arrival of Europeans include emus, bustards and the orange-bellied parrot. “Birds can’t save themselves and we haven’t the expertise or ability to prevent their decline,� Mr Burrows said.

Eating first meal a milestone for Emma

Concert celebrates Society’s birth

EMMA Coles was only able to eat her first full meal of solid foods when she was 11 years old. And that was years after she began working with Peninsula Health speech pathologist Danielle Surwald to overcome a case of severe food aversion. “You always get people saying they’ve got a fussy eater at home but it’s not quite the same,” mum Roz Coles said. Emma could only tolerate liquids until she was seven years old and then progressed to purees. Until recently, her diet consisted of just soup and yoghurt. In a milestone event last month, Emma ate her first proper meal – and finished it all. “My other kids wanted nuggets and chips and I decided to get her one and just see how she goes,” Mrs Coles said. “I sat there with her and said, ‘I know you struggle with this, but we’ve been practising so let’s give it a go’. “Then she ate the whole thing and enjoyed it!” Ms Surwald regards the event as a “significant milestone”. “Emma has had to work hard to overcome her sensory and emotional responses to food,” she said. “She has had to teach herself to bite and chew solid foods, something most of us take for granted. She is now setting her own goals and finding pleasure in eating. “It has been an amazing journey for all those involved and Emma should be very proud of herself.” Ms Surwald started seeing Emma

FRANKSTON Music Society will celebrate its golden anniversary with an Afternoon at the Proms concert at Frankston Arts Centre this week. The society was formed in 1967 by famous Australian and international pianist Vera Bradford and a small group of Frankston residents. Among their first actions was to establish a symphony orchestra – an action which will be celebrated at the proms concert on Sunday 27 August. Frankston Symphony Orchestra will perform Gershwin’s Rhapsody in Blue with guest soloist Leigh Harrold. Other items will be Walton’s Crown Imperial with PYMS, Bernstein’s Candide Overture, Koehne’s Horse Opera from Inflight Entertainment, and Grainger’s Molly on the Shore. At the function, Mornington Peninsula Chorale will sing The Heavens are Telling from The Creation by Haydn, Rodgers and Hammerstein’s On Broadway Medley and All I Want for Christmas is You by Mariah Carey. Vera Florence Bradford was born on 5 September 1904 and died just a few months short of her 100th birthday. She studied piano at Melbourne University and, in her early 20s, travelled to the US to study with Percy Grainger. They became lifelong friends. “Even though she travelled, and played to great acclaim, Bradford always longed to return home and to give back to it the beauty of the music she so loved,” society member Jane Kelley said. “It was through Vera and a dedicated band of local people that we now have wonderful music on the peninsula.”

when she turned one after the Cranbourne East girl began attending Frankston Hospital for speech pathology appointments. “Danielle has been working with Emma teaching her how to chew and strengthening up her jaw,” Mrs Coles said. “She gave Emma a chew toy and some exercises and we’ve just kept working on that, pushing her boundaries and slowly, slowly desensitising her to food.” Frankston Hospital spokeswoman Jessica Mills said the role of the speech pathologist was to work with those with speech or communication difficulties, as well as help those with feeding and swallowing

difficulties. For instance, when babies have difficulty sucking during breast or bottle feeding they might come to an infant feeding clinic which is run by speech pathologists. Or, a stroke victim may have lost the ability to swallow, she said. “Speech pathologists may recommend changes to the textures of foods or drinks, and provide rehabilitation techniques and exercises to help people swallow safely. “Food aversion is on the more extreme end of the scale and the speech pathologist worked with Emma over the years to build up her tolerance to food and has most recently been doing exercises with

Emma to strengthen her jaw and teach her how to chew. It’s something we take for granted but, as she’s never been able to eat solid food before, she never had to chew.” Mrs Coles is also delighted with her daughter’s progress. “She still has pureed food for breakfast and lunch because we need to get food into her but she now will also eat chicken nuggets, chicken strips, hot chips, potato chips or biscuits. “It’s nice to know now we can go out for dinner as a family and I know it’s not the healthiest of options but we don’t have to bring soup with us.” She praised Ms Surwald’s “crucial role” in helping Emma overcome her food aversion over the years. “We wouldn’t be where we are now without Danielle,” Mrs Coles said. “She has just worked so hard and so tirelessly over the years. I’ve always known that if I get stuck I can just send her an email or give her a call. “It’s been a long journey and one that is still going but we’ll keep working on it.” Speech Pathology Week runs until 26 August.

Bid for boat ramps in Western Port Stephen Taylor steve@baysidenews.com.au

Unwanted ‘art’: Graffiti at Mt Martha Primary School is an eyesore and costs a lot to remove, police say. Pictures: Supplied

School’s unwanted additions MORNINGTON police last week executed four search warrants resulting in six arrests and the laying of 80 graffiti-related charges. Police recently joined forces with Mornington Peninsula Shire officers to identify those responsible for the graffiti that Acting Senior Sergeant Steven Duffee said was becoming prevalent in

the area. “But we still need people’s help to identify some of the graffiti,” he said. “If any of these photographs seem familiar, or you know who has committed these offences, please contact Crime Stoppers 1800 333 000 or Mornington police 5970 4900,” he said.

A STUDY by a boating industry-backed group has recommended building four launching ramps near Tyabb and adding another at Stony Point. Mornington Peninsula Shire has “noted” the plan which seeks to ease the “critical levels” of capacity facing recreational boat owners on both sides of the peninsula. The shire’s potential backing of suggestions by the Peninsula Marine Alliance could add 300 car and trailer parking bays for public use at Yaringa and at Stony Pt on the shores of Western Port. Land for the Stony Point parking bays could come through acquisition or lease of Defence Force land at HMAS Cerberus. The alliance’s study aimed to identify how to maximise the capacity, capability and efficiency of marine infrastructure on Western Port and identify potential new sites for boat ramps. It follows the shire’s controversial decision to expand and refurbish boat ramps at Rye. The study, outlined to council’s 8 August meeting by team leader – strategy Russell Smith, stated that Yaringa was the only site on the peninsula’s coast that could be developed as a new, large scale boat ramp without significant public opposition. The site at the end of Yaringa Rd is partly covered by mangroves and requires dredging. It adjoins the southern boundary of the commercial Yaringa boat harbour Council has asked the alliance to submit a community consultation strategy before seeking any statutory approvals for the projects. The report also discussed the need for money for

web cameras and other technological innovations as well hiring ramp rangers during peak periods “to improve ramp effectiveness”. The alliance says it is a not-for-profit industry association of marine enterprises, such as boat builders, marinas, yacht clubs, seafood producers and marine equipment manufacturers. It received a grant through the shire’s boating safety facilities program for the report completed late last year by consultants BMT Design and Technology. Mr Smith said the peninsula had about 10 per cent of Victoria’s coastline and that it was “well placed to provide good access to the two bays.” “However, coastal development is always a complex and contested issue with a variety of user groups, environmental issues and growing populations competing.” The report did “not foresee council having to provide any major funding for any of its proposals, although it may be involved in managing the facilities”. The report recommends building a public boat ramp at Yaringa on the site of the 1960 Yaringa marina on Crown land at the end of Yaringa Rd. Mr Smith’s report stated that any development would have to give “particular attention to the environmental significance of the environs”. The shire did not respond in time for inclusion in the Western Port News when contacted (Monday). The 135-space Stony Point public boat ramp has three lanes and a caravan park run by Crib PointStony Point foreshore management committee. “Boating capacity is at a critical level on the Mornington Peninsula,” Mr Smith said.

TAKE MY BREATH AWAY PROUDLY set at one of the highest points in Mount Martha, offering some of the best views you will see of Port Phillip Bay heading up to the skyline of Melbourne, this impressive home measures an astonishing 511 square metres ( 55 square). The home instantly impresses with beautifully tiled floors to the entry foyer leading you through to a magnificent formal lounge which opens out to one of two expansive timber decks. Off to one side is a media room with richly carpeted floors and a sleek timber bar, and over in the west wing are three bedrooms with built-in robes that share the downstairs bathroom, a separate toilet and a powder room. After the impact of the formal lounge with its curved feature wall and elegant stylings, the contrast to the equally handsome, yet somehow more convivial main living zone creates the impression of two superb homes in one. Bright and spacious with great use of timbers and smart black bench tops and splash backs to the kitchen, the upstairs zone definitely has that reassuring vibe of a true family space. Incorporated into the kitchen space is a cosy meals area and across a tiled walkway is a separate formal dining room that can be closed off from the lounge for private dinner parties. The upstairs entertaining deck is absolutely breathtaking with the glass balustrades and retractable shade sails adding to the sensation of watching the incredible panorama before you through the ultimate wide screen television. Completing the top floor is the master bedroom, which rather than make a grand and opulent statement is simply just a lovely bedroom with a breathtaking view. There is a separate walk-in robe and the ensuite features stylish plantation shutters, twin vanities and a walk-in shower. The 1450 square metre corner block has access from Hove Road to a double garage, with a second double garage under the roof line of the home. ď Ž

No time like the present for lodging your tax WITH a suite of online tools that make lodging easier than ever before and the majority of prefill information now available, Tax Commissioner Chris Jordan said now is an ideal time to do your tax. “We have developed a suite of online services that have made it easier than ever before to get your tax return done, and now we have most pre-fill records such as wages, bank interest and dividends ready for taxpayers and agents to use. This means most of the work is done for you,” Mr Jordan said. “Your information can be accessed via myTax or can be uploaded by your agent. All you need to do is review the pre-filled information and add any deductions, it’s that easy. “We’re finding that people who lodge their own return through myTax are finished in less than half an hour. It’s one of the reasons why we have a 93 per cent satisfaction rate with users.” Mr Jordan said many taxpayers were taking

advantage of the tools the ATO had released which make tax time easier and faster than ever before. “Our ATO app makes it easy for individual taxpayers to manage their tax and super affairs on the go. One of the best features of the app is our myDeductions tool which allows you to take a photo of receipts using your smartphone, and store them in one convenient spot,” Mr Jordan said. “You can then share your records directly with your agent or upload your deductions directly to your tax return. If you haven’t used it yet, download the ATO app today and start snapping today. You’ll be able to use the data next year to make sure you don’t miss out on any deductions due to faded or lost receipts.” Mr Jordan said 2017 was shaping up to be a record-breaking year for lodgment numbers. “We’ve received almost five million returns already this year, which is an increase of 360,000 on this time last year,” Mr Jordan said.

“Over three million of these lodgments have come through tax agents, an increase of two per cent from 2016. Almost two million Australians have completed their returns themselves using myTax, up 13 per cent from last year. “So whether you lodge your own return or use an agent, the numbers show that it’s easier and faster than ever before to get your tax done – which also means getting your refund back even faster.” The ATO has already issued 3.6 million refunds worth a total of almost $8.5 billion. More than 96 per cent received their refunds within 12 days. Taxpayers can lodge online using myTax or by going to a registered tax agent. You can check your agent is registered through the Tax Practitioner’s Board website. If you are using an agent for the first time or using a different tax agent to last year, you need to contact them before 31 October 2017 to ensure you are on their lodgment program.

100 YEARS AGO THIS WEEK...

Frankston prepares for show of patriotism Compiled by Cameron McCullough NEXT Saturday, September 1st is to be a “Red Letter Day” for Frankston, and thousands of people will be given an opportunity of demonstrating their pent-up, patriotic, and loyal spirit. We know we have had a win, but we feel we are to and our hearts will not fail in the meantime. Our determination and burning patriotism will be by the boys in the trenches and will hearten and stimulate them. But no one can assist to show there is not going to be any downheartedness and every nerve will be strained for victory. The children will be specially well catered for. Mr McMuir who was deputed to collect on their behalf has had no difficulty in obtaining money and sweets. Given a fine day, the Pageant of Loyalty will be a monster success. In the evening a Grand Concert will be given by the Langwarrin Military Company and this is sufficient for a really first class entertainment. *** Mornington Junction. The local Progress Association held their Arbor Day on Saturday last August 18th, when the idea of planting trees for the soldiers was first mooted. The committee met with the usual cry of the Pessimist, “Who’s going to pay for the trees?” and’”You’ll never get the money for the guards? But we kept on working silently and surely with the result that the number of trees was oversubscribed for, each one guaranteeing to supply a guard of sawn timber. ***

AT a committee meeting of the Wattle Club, held in the Mechanics’ Hall, on Thursday evening last, it was decided to donate the following amounts: £10 10s to the Frankston Red Cross; £10 to obtain Xmas boxes for boys in the firing line and £25 to procure a Combination BedChair for uses at the Base Hospital. *** THE Shire Elections passed over very quietly in this Shire on Thursday last. Crs Oates and Murray being returned unopposed for the North and Centre Ridings respectively, and Cr W. P. Mason was returned unopposed for the Seat in the North Riding, rendered vacant by Cr Plowman. In the East Riding Cr Alden was opposed by Mr J. D. Hodgins and the letter was elected by a majority of 25 votes, the numbers being :—Hodgins 149; Alden 124. In the Mornington Shire there were five candidates for the three seats. Two of the retiring candidates (Crs Blacker and Nunn) were returned, but Cr Korner had to retire. The following were the votes polled :—J. G. Barrett, 471; R. Nunn, 434; J. Blacker, 426; F. M. Linley. 381; W. A. Korner, 205. *** Australian Battleplanes. WAR OFFICE APPRECIATION OF GIFTS. The following letter from Lord Derby, Secretary of State for War, under date of 19th June, 1917, to me, as Honorary Organiser of the “Australian Air Squadrons’ Fund” speaks for itself, as to the value each additional Battleplane is in helping to secure command of the air, upon which

everything now depends “Dear Sir, - Lord Darby desires me to thank you for the copies of your second appeal for the Australian Air Squadrons’ Fund, and to say that the question of air supremacy is one of such vital importance at this time that the fine work of your fund and The patriotism of your subscribers cannot he over-estimated, and is fully appreciated by the War Office. (Sgt) W. H. T. OTTLEY. *** Cupid On Crutches. WHY THE GIRL OF TODAY DOES NOT HESITATE TO PROPOSE TO HER DISABLED LOVER. THE love of a man for a maid and the love of a woman for a man are two totally different emotions. War has proved this to us. Every time a maimed warrior leads his bride to the alter he is demonstrating the strength of woman’s love. Cupid can use a crutch to help storm the citadel of a woman’s heart and the fact that hundreds of women are marrying the men they love, although these men are “broken in the wars,” goes to prove that woman’s love does not hinge on mere physical attraction. “WHEN I COME BACK.” When a woman loves a man she is willing to marry him whether he has left parts of himself on the battle field or whether he is physically perfect. That is where men and women differ. Man looks for perfection when he goes a-wooing, and there is hardly a man living who would go to a cripples home in search of a wife. The deformed woman usually reconciles herself to spinsterdom, and cupid

ignores her when he fares forth with a quiver full of golden-tipped arrows. Yet he will work in the cause of the maimed man, and especially of the heroes of the moment. “When I come back !” whispers the man, and the girl understands. If he comes back a wreck of his former self she does not hang back. She is ready to compensate, by her love, for the suffering he has undergone. The empty sleeve does not frighten her. “It wasn’t his limbs only that I loved” she’ll tell you. And, could you look down into the depths of her heart, you would find that the demands of war had increased her love. Some people tell you that women marry cripples out of pity, but pity is often the key that unlocks a woman’s heart; and what do keys matter when doors are open ? Let us have a little more pity, for it is a beautiful thing. CRUEL CONVENTION. War has acted as a Juggernaut to many of our old laws and conventions. Ten years ago we would have condemned the maid who proposed, yet we have her today, and the world says “God bless her!” Take the case of the maimed warrior who is sensitive. He imagines that honor forbids him to ask any woman to tie herself to a cripple. The woman knows, because her intuition is sharper than man’s, where the book of love is in question. And if she loves the bashful, sensitive hero, she proves herself when she ignores false modesty and old conventional laws that demanded that women should be the quarry rather

than the hunter. Under ordinary conditions we still prefer that man should propose, but war has created extraordinary conditions, which permit women to exercise their common sense when it seems necessary. A woman’s love is so mixed up with the maternal instinct. The very best women want to mother their men. The crippled man arouses this mother love, which makes for lasting happiness. THE TWO WOMEN. Most women who love suffer through man’s independence. They know themselves to be of his life but “a thing apart,” and are always getting hurt because they count for so very little. When a woman marries a cripple she knows she is going to count in his life, and that knowledge means a lot. War is giving us many cripples; that is the greatest tragedy of the times. But a deformity from accident bears no comparison with an inherited one There is no taint of heredity to worry about. It is wonderful to some people that women can marry our blinded heroes but it is not wonderful to women. If love is blind, why should not love come through blindness? The women whose soul is more lovely than her face can find the kingdom of love more easily with a blinded mate than with one who can see. There are two women who count in the life of every man—the mother who bears him and the woman who helps him to find his better self. *** From the pages of the Mornington Standard, 25 August 1917

Sharks end Tigers’ hopes PENINSULA LEAGUE

By Toe Punt BONBEACH put an end to Seaford’s season on Saturday, knocking them out of the finals’ race with a convincing 47 point victory. It was a key game for both teams, Bonbeach needing to win to maintain its place in the top three and getting the double chance, while Seaford needed to win to have any chance of playing finals. However, as one very good footy judge said at the Mornington v Mt Eliza game a week ago, even if Seaford had beaten Bonbeach (and Mt Eliza had lost to Mornington), they still would have missed out on the finals. Mt Eliza thumped Langwarrin on Saturday and given its supreme percentage, would have finished in fifth place. As it turned out, the difference in the end was four points and percentage. It was a good warm up finals-type game for the Sharks, who found the going tough in the first half despite leading at the major interval. Things were still tight at three quarter time (13 points) before the home side booted six goals to one in the final term to record a 14.15 (99) to 7.10 (52) victory. Trent Dennis-Lane booted four majors to win the league goal kicking award while their stars in Jackson Casey, Shane McDonald and Dylan Jones really took control of the match, especially in the end. Aaron Walton played a lone hand for the Tigers with five goals.

Eagles soar: EdithvaleAspendale thumped Mornington. Picture: Scott Memery

The Sharks can now look forward to what will be a cracking Qualifying Final against neighbour Edithvale-Aspendale this Sunday at Frankston Park. For Seaford, it’s time for reflection on what turned out to be a wasted season. The Tigers copped injuries to key players at the wrong time but they did lose their way for a six week block, which hurt them in the end. They learn from that and the desire should be there for a big pre-season. Edithvale warmed up to the big final with a monster win against Mornington, 16.20 (116) to 5.8 (38).

In what many considered to be a ‘danger game’, the Eagles blew the Dogs away in the second quarter and went on to boot 6.10 to three behinds in the second half. Mick Meehan booted four goals and Matt Clark three for the Eagles while Mark Mullins was at his best in defence, along with Stevey Mannix. With the resignation of Chris Holcombe as coach, it is now believed that the Doggies will pour all of their attention in getting back favourite son and current Cranbourne coach Simon Goosey back at the helm. The club

needs Goosey! Mt Eliza carried over its last quarter heroics against Mornington last Sunday and put Langwarrin to the sword in front of a home crowd on Saturday. The Redlegs booted six unanswered goals in the opening quarter and led by 54 points at half time. It then booted 10 goals to four in the second half with Shaun Knott and Karl Lombardozzi booting five goals each. ‘Lomba’ played forward last week too which raised a few eyebrows but with Justin Van Unen out of the team for the year, as well as ruckman Grant Goodall with a knee, the Redlegs needed to try something different. It worked. Jordan Capkin has also found form at the right time, booting four majors. Teenager Zac Foot was outstanding for the Kangas, as was Gerard Brown and Blake Harkness. It will be very interesting to see how the Langwarrin Football Club reacts to finishing on the bottom of the ladder in season 2017. One thing is for sure, if nothing changes, nothing changes. Pines warmed up for its Elimination Final showdown against Mt Eliza at Chelsea on Saturday with a solid 13.12 (90) to 4.5 (29) victory against Karingal. Sixteen-year-old Liam Cox was at it again for the Pythons with a couple of goals. Cox is the teenage son of former Python assistant Paul and was coached in the juniors by premiership player Glenn Cornell – a superb Pines connection.

Luke Potts and Paul Scanlon dominated through the middle and Corey Ash was up to his old trucks of shutting down opponents also. Karingal star of the future Darcy Hope was outstanding for the Bulls. Karingal will announce their new coach on the RPP Footy Show (98.7FM or livestream on RPP – The Voice of the Peninsula) this Saturday after Andrew Sharp would not commit to the job in 2018. Frankston YCW was very unconvincing but did what it had to do to win the game against Chelsea on Saturday. Once again, like it has done on many occasions this season, the Stonecats left it until the last quarter to shift up a gear and get the job done. The home side trailed by one point at three quarter time after being held to three goals in three quarters, however, booted five goals to one in the last to win 8.12 (60) to 5.6 (36).

Buds breathe life into Nepean race NEPEAN LEAGUE By Toe Punt A WEEK is a long time in football. A little over seven days ago Rosebud drew with Hastings and came out of that game looking highly unlikely of winning the 2017 Nepean Division premiership. Wind the clock forward a week and the premiership race is well and truly alive after Rosebud inflicted Sorrento’s first loss of the season. The Buds jumped out of the blocks and booted seven goals in one of the best quarters we have witnessed for the season. Not only did the Buds hit the scoreboard (6.2.38), Sorrento also made the most of its opportunities and trailed by just 13 points (4.1.25) at the first change. When Sorrento booted five goals to one in the second quarter and entered the major interval with a seven point buffer, it appeared that the Buds had fired all of their shots and simply needed to hang on. Not only did the Buds hang on, they went on to win the match, 13.11 (89) to 13.7 (85). In was an enthralling last quarter after just one point separated the sides at three quarter time. On a couple of occasions Sorrento appeared as though it was going to hang on, however, like the week before against Hastings, Rosebud just kept coming and booted the final goal of the match. This time the final goal got Rosebud in front, not level. The Buds needed to get some things right from last week and Jackson McRae coming into the side and playing a key

defensive role on Nick Corp was a massive influence on the final result. Midfielders in Sean Downie, Fletcher Hustwaite and Brenton Payne were able to hit the scoreboard on multiple occasions and Matt Baker joined Keegan Downie once again in attack and they booted two goals each. Seb Krumeich and Bart Wallace did outstanding jobs defensively too while Ben Dwyer was masterful in the ruck. Leigh Poholke booted four goals for the Sharks to win yet another league goalkicking award, while Leigh Treeby and Marcus Gardner booted three majors each. Rosebud coach Adrian McBean said it was a good finals-type game.

Frankston Times 21 August 2017

“It was a great finals atmosphere and they’re the types of games you want to be involved in at this time, win lose or draw,” McBean said. “There were a numbers of factors in our win but more importantly we got our team defence right. “I thought Hastings was really good the week before and we were lucky to get away with a draw. “Before the Hastings game I think we got away with a lot of stuff and didn’t get hurt on the scoreboard but Hastings proved last week that we can. “We just got a few of those things right against Sorrento and we can’t underestimate the job McRae did on Corp – it was sensational.

“We really wanted to win this one and it was good reward for effort,” McBean said. Red Hill needed to beat Tyabb by five goals more than Dromana beat Rye by on the weekend to sure up its place in the finals – it achieved its objective. The Hillmen posted a massive 21.15 (141) to 2.4 (16) win against the Yabbies with 12 players hitting the scoreboard. Chris Irving was the major contributor with four goals while Sean Marchetti has found his best at the right time. The win was enough to see the Hillmen finish six per cent clear of Dromana in fifth place. Dromana did everything it could too though, beating Rye 21.17 (143) to 6.8 (48). Rikki Johnston, in arguably his final game for the Tigers as a player (he is contracted to coach next season), booted eight goals in a best on ground performance. The Demons, who have had a rebuilding season, blooding 10-plus new Under 19s, fielded one of their most inexperienced sides for the year. There is a little doubt that after coming so close to finals, there will be a little fire burning inside of the Tigers in the pre-season in preparation for 2018. Crib Point finished the season in the best way possible, smashing Somerville in its final game of the season. The Magpies booted 10 goals to two in the second half to blow the home side away 14.9 (93) to 6.14 (50). Mitchell Chopping, who played in the reserves last week, was one of the Pies’ best yet again while experienced players Luke Herrington and Taylor Stratton were outstanding. It shows that if eve-

rything clicked for the Pies, they were capable. Somerville President Andy Palmer announced he would be stepping down from the top job and coach Bevan Malloy cannot commit next season either for family reasons but will continue to run the bench on match days. It is believed Andrejs Everitt will step up to the senior coaching role next season. The Eagles’ nest will be an interesting place to keep an eye on in the preseason. In the final game, Frankston booted 19.14 (128) to 9.6 (60) to get the win against Pearcedale. Sam Fox and Zac Longham booted four majors each and Alex Harnett starred for the Bombers. It’s been a long season for the Panthers. Leigh Stewart selected his 49th player on Saturday to play in the seniors – we all think that’s got to be some kind of a record with the average being somewhere around 35 players for a team not playing finals. The positive is the entire list is now aware of what it takes to play senior football.

Langwarrin, Skye still have fate in own hands SOCCER

By Craig MacKenzie THE race for the State 1 South-East title and a spot in the 2018 NPL is on in earnest after Mornington’s 4-2 win over Langwarrin at Lawton Park on Saturday. The result cuts Langwarrin’s lead at the top of the table to just two points but Gus Macleod’s men still have their fate in their own hands while secondplaced Mornington has to win its last two matches and hope that Langy slips up in the process. Langy is at home to Clifton Hill then finishes the season away to Malvern City while Mornington is at home to Malvern City then away to Morwell Pegasus. A team of volunteers worked for hours on Saturday to get Lawton Park playable for the big derby. Armed with brushes, squeegees and pitchforks they eventually won the battle against the elements and although the reserves match was called off referee James Morgan gave the thumbs up for the senior game just 30 minutes before kick-off. Mornington struck the opening blow when Aaron Root was at the back post to head home Ryan Paczkowski’s cross from the right in the 30th minute. The visitors went further ahead a minute into first-half injury time when Langy defender Andy McIntyre slid down trying to cut out Sammy Orritt’s cross and could only deflect the ball past Langy keeper Robbie Acs. Within a minute McIntyre almost redeemed himself with a near post header that was cleared off the Mornington goal line. In the 57th minute Mornington went further ahead after McIntyre gave the ball away allowing Paczkowski to charge into the left of the area and his cutback was diverted past Acs by Langy defender Nick Thorogood for another own goal. Langy hit back a minute later when Mat Luak passed to Aaran Currie who turned and struck the ball past Mornington keeper Kris McEvoy from the right of the area. Currie’s back post header from Connor Belger’s corner in the 69th minute made it 3-2 but that was all the joy Langy would get from this contest and Currie was substituted a few minutes later. The tireless Paczkowski missed a chance to settle the issue in the 85th minute but dinked his shot past Acs and wide of the far post. Then a long ball downfield by Paczkowski in the 89th minute was misjudged by Langy substitute Navin Velupillay allowing Wayne Gordon to

The State 2 South-East ladder tells a sorry tale of local sides with Seaford United now relegated and Peninsula Strikers staring down the barrel in second-bottom spot. Seaford lost 6-2 at home to Old Scotch last weekend while Strikers lost 3-0 away to Heatherton United on Saturday night. Second half goals to Ali Sanad, Meldin Klehic and Owen Walker accounted for Strikers whose night was made worse when Scott Buchanan was sent off the bench in the 79th minute. Another local State 2 outfit Frankston Pines went down 4-2 at home to Beau-

maris on Saturday but enjoys a fivepoint buffer over Strikers. Pines’ goals came from Matty Davis and CJ Hodgson while Beaumaris’ scorers were Gianni Allebi (2), Kieron Kennedy and Zach Lemke. Despite last weekend’s 2-1 home loss which gave Knox City the title, Skye United still is in the hunt for promotion from State 3 South-East. Billy Armour’s men are now third on goal difference behind Stan Webster’s Brandon Park which drew 2-2 with relegation-threatened Dingley Stars and Brandon Park travels to Skye in the final round of the season. Skye opened the scoring on Saturday in the 32nd minute when striker

Daniel Attard controlled the ball from a throw-in on the left of the area then turned and casually volleyed it into the top far corner. Mathew Hames almost levelled five minutes later but his left-foot shot struck the far post then Nehemiah Verscharen’s curled shot a minute later was spectacularly tipped over by Skye keeper Jonathon Crook. Wide midfielder Jordan Avraham levelled in the 54th minute with a neat first-time strike after Grant Lane’s low ball from the right into the near post. A looping Marcus Collier header in the 66th minute forced Knox keeper Joel Becker to punch clear then a bizarre goal in the 85th minute decided the issue. Lane curled a shot toward goal from the left of the area and Crook was well positioned but the spin on the ball and the blinding glare of the sun combined to send it past his grasp and into goal to make it 2-1. Skye’s last good chance came a minute later but substitute Lawrence Komba shot wide from close range. Baxter smashed Harrisfield Hurricanes 6-1 in their State 4 South fixture at Baxter Park on Saturday. Louis Griffiths started the rout in the 8th minute then teenage dynamo Travis Ernsdoerfer made it 2-0 in the 13th minute. Alan Lipsett chimed in with goals in the 17th and 23rd minutes and big Dan Disseldorp added his name to the scoresheet in the 35th minute as the Hurricanes were swept away by a fivegoal first-half tsunami. Harrisfield’s sole reply came from Nick Tsantlogiannis three minutes into the second half but Baxter substitute Justin Brown joined in festivities two minutes from time to round out the scoreline. Rosebud Heart twice came from behind to record a gutsy 3-2 home win over Hampton Park United in their State 4 South clash on Saturday. Adrian Miranta caught Heart on the break and finished well to make it 1-0 in the 29th minute. A superb finish by Cory Osorio in the 53rd minute made it 1-1 but straight from the restart a long ball from Hampton Park and a defensive mixup by James Liddle and Matthew Pearce allowed Mitchel Hawkins to lob Heart keeper Sean Skelly and restore the visitors’ lead. Heart pressed hard for an equaliser which eventually came in the 77th minute via a superb corner from manof-the-match Blake Hicks which saw Daniel Hodge head home to make it 2-2. Three minutes later a Hampton Park short corner was well read by Tony Orr

who intercepted and passed to Dave Greening who was well inside his defensive half. Greening turned and charged toward goal going past three defenders before finishing superbly for a dramatic winner. Somerville Eagles recorded their fourth win of the State 5 South season and skipped four points clear of the relegation zone with a 2-1 victory over second-bottom White Star Dandenong at Dallas Brooks Park on Saturday. A Cormac Doherty header from Eric Manhanong’s free kick in the 8th minute opened the scoring and Doherty made it 2-0 from the penalty spot following a handball inside the area in the 31st minute. Aldin Pjevo’s penalty in the 54th minute made it 2-1 but the Eagles held on for an important win. Southern United beat the senior NTC side 4-1 at Monterey Reserve on Sunday. Southern captain Candy FerreyraBas opened the scoring in the 8th minute and a lightning-quick break in the 25th minute engineered by wide left player Elizabeth Robers and finished by Savanna Anastopoulos gave the home side a two-goal cushion at the interval. Southern’s US import Courtney Hueston scored twice in the second half while NTC could only muster a solitary response. Powerhouse Southern central defender Mikhaila Bowden was impressive. Southern’s under-15s lost 2-0 to NTC in an earlier match with a low shot from just outside the area by NTC’s Gemma Leo in the 33rd minute opening the scoring. Leo completed her double in the second half but Southern made the elite youngsters work hard for their win. Southern used five under-13s in its matchday squad. Southern’s under-18s have struggled this season following a massive turnover of players in the off-season and NTC accounted for George Perpina’s side 6-0. Paige Zois and Olivia Suarez both scored twice and other scorers were Nia Stamatopoulos (penalty) and Kiara Hronopoulos. Most local sides are inactive during this weekend’s catch-up round but not Southern which has an opportunity to clinch the NPLW under-13s championship. This weekend’s games: SATURDAY 3pm: Southern Utd v Geelong Galaxy Utd (Monterey Reserve, U13s 10am, U15s 11.30am, U18s 1pm), Somerville Eagles v Pakenham Utd (Barber Reserve).

Boyd makes another pitch at international glory By Ben Triandafillou TALENTED baseball pitcher Jackson Boyd, of Langwarrin will again represent Australia as he heads for the under-18s Baseball World Cup in Thunder Bay, Canada. Boyd, 17, flew out last Saturday 19 August and will have eight lead-up matches before the opening round of the World Cup on Friday 1 September. Boyd made the selection for the 20-player team, following an impressive performance at an Australian academy camp on the Gold Coast earlier this year. This will be the first time that Boyd has made the Australian World Cup side and he said making the team is a whole other level. “I’m going to be playing with the best of the best and they could even be future Major League Baseball

787 Tennis searches for “new players” By Ben Triandafillou THE unique 787 Men’s Tennis Competition will enter its 80th season this month since being founded by Mount Eliza resident Kevin Morley in 1977. The private doubles competition has been played on member’s home tennis courts in and around the surrounding areas of Mt Eliza for the past 40 years. It is now entering a new phase and is looking to increase their number of members with a “new players” drive. 787 Tennis are seeking interested players with or without a home tennis court and who are ideally aged 35 years plus. 787 committee member John Patchell said you don’t need to be a champion to join the

Bell has golden run at championships By Ben Triandafillou OUR Lady of Fatima student Joel Bell returned last week with two gold medals and a top 10 finish in the under-12 School Sport Australia Cross Country Championships. Bell, 12, joined the Team Victoria Cross Country team after finishing fifth in the regional cross country and was given the opportunity to run at the championships in Hobart from Friday 11 August to Monday 14 August. He took everything in his stride and helped the under-12’s Team Victoria side earn an overall gold medal. Bell was also awarded a gold medal in the 1500m composite relay. Bell said that just getting the experience to run in Hobart and meet new friends the highlight of his trip. “We went really well and the track was really tough with a 300m hill,” he said. “I really just want to thank my mum and dad for taking me everywhere and helping with the travel.” Bell is part of the Mornington Little Athletics and is now looking at running a marathon or triathlon in the near future.

competition and residing in Mt Eliza is not a prerequisite. “We have a lot of fun – it’s competitive but still very social,” he said. “It’s a great competition and you get to go and enjoy some incredible facilities.” “You get time to mix and meet a bunch of people. You might need a plumber to fix an issue at home but you might have just played with a plumber who can help, so you never know who you might meet. The 787 tennis competition plays every Saturday afternoon and will play its first round of its 80th season on Saturday 26 August. For any further information contact John Patchell on 0418566651.

stars,” he said. Boyd, who was part of the Southern Mariners, a representative charter for the Victorian bayside suburbs, is no stranger to performing at the top-level. Last year the Southern Mariners managed to reach the senior level championship game at the Little League World Series in Bangor, Maine, United States and in doing so became the first Australian side to make the finals of a World Series tournament. The Southern Mariners journey started in Geelong where they won the state championships in January last year before taking out the national championships in NSW later in May. They then went on to triumph at the Asia-Pacific Championships in The Philippines which secured them a spot in the World Series. Boyd said making it to the World Series was an achievement in itself but to do as well as they did wasn’t really expected. “We won our way all the way up to the World Series where we managed to finish runners-up,” he said. “We didn’t even think we would win a game over there so coming second was a massive shock.” Boyd and the under-18s Australian side is now set to face world number three, Korea, on the opening day of the 2017 Baseball World Cup.

Parkdale cricketer gets “massive” opportunity By Ben Triandafillou PARKDALE secondary student, Joshua Sugden, represented Victoria for the second consecutive year at the National Indoor Cricket Championships in Mackay, QLD last month. Sugden, 14, was given the opportunity to captain the second under-15s Victorian team and was able to lead the side into fifth place. Sugden said the team trained for close to three months before the tournament to decide who would represent the state. “Having the announcement two weeks before the tournament that I would be captaining the Victorian side was massive,” he said. “It was a big achievement as that was my main goal and was something I was aiming for when doing all the training leading up to the event.” Sugden said most of the matches they played at the cham-

pionships were pretty close but noticed a big difference playing in Queensland this year compared to Dubbo last year. “It was a really good tournament and learning experience. “It’s completely different playing in Queensland to what it was like last year in Dubbo as the ball swung a lot more because of the weather and the heat.” “It was a much different atmosphere with all the little things making a big difference.” Sugden has played in the Parkdale senior’s side and has been playing in a super league tournament for the past few months in Cranbourne where he captains the fourth side. Sugden, a recipient of the $500 Local Sporting Champions grant, met with the federal Isaacs Labor MP Mark Dreyfus to thank him on Monday 21 August. The grant went towards the championship’s fees as well as equipment and playing gear.
