Cancer diagnosis a ‘shock’ for MP Brodie Cowburn brodie@baysidenews.com.au NEWLY elected Dunkley MP Peta Murphy has vowed to “continue to work hard” for the people of Frankston in the wake of a cancer diagnosis. Ms Murphy overcame a bout with breast cancer in 2011, but received news last week that her cancer had returned. “As many people know, in 2011

I was diagnosed with breast cancer. I received excellent treatment and, having passed the 5 year mark since my diagnosis we were confident that I was in the clear,” Ms Murphy said. “Last week we received the unexpected news that my cancer has returned. While this has come as a shock, my doctor advises me that my condition is treatable and that he expects me to do well with treatment, which I will

start in coming weeks. “I have terrific support from family, friends and colleagues, and a strong fighting spirit.” Despite the diagnosis, Ms Murphy said she is committed to keeping up her work as an MP. On Wednesday she will be in Canberra to deliver her maiden speech as member for Dunkley. “I intend to continue to work hard to represent my community at home and

in the parliament,” she said. Opposition Leader Anthony Albanese showed his support for Ms Murphy on social media. “Peta is one of the most impressive people in politics. Her first battle with cancer led her to run for parliament, and her second isn’t going to keep her away,” he said. “The whole Labor family is with you in this fight. You’ve got this.” Liberal senator Arthur Sinodinis,

who returned to parliament after a cancer diagnosis in 2017, said “good luck Peta, your spirit will pull you through. Don’t let the illness define you, there’s lots to do for your constituents.” Mr Murphy was elected as member for Dunkley during the May federal election. She became the first Labor MP to hold the seat since 1996. She is the first woman to ever be the member for Dunkley.

WHAT’S NEW...

Village Glen completes their continuum of care AT Village Glen, we pride ourselves on providing the highest standard of care in every facet of our business; retirement living, aged care and home care. We aim to give older people the full suite of care services to suit them at whatever stage of the journey they are at. Village Glen recognised there was one piece of their care puzzle missing. Village Glen is completing their continuum of care model in 2019. They are doing this by becoming a provider of ‘Short Term Restorative Care’ packages (STRC). In simplistic terms these are rehabilitation services for our elderly. These packages assigned by the Government, allow Village Glen to provide another level of care to residents of the Mornington Peninsula. The rehabilitation program is an 8-week journey of intensive care, love and support to an elderly person. The objective is to target people who are experiencing functional decline and assist them in getting back on their feet and staying in their own home. Basically, if you aren’t feeling your normal self or lacking energy and strength, been unwell and daily tasks are harder than they should be, a STRC package could be for you. The list of services you can have on a STRC package is almost endless, but to name a few include physiotherapy, occupational therapy, nursing care, assistance with shopping, help with showering, meal preparation and dietary advice. The list goes on. The best part about these services is that the Village Glen team already have the staff trained and ready to go as all these services are already

offered under the aged care and home care arm of the business. This is just another way for Village Glen to provide tailored, specialised care to clients. Someone you know may have had an illness or is struggling more than normal and would benefit from the Village Glen team providing a lengthy list of allied health services either in their own home or during a rehabilitation stay in one of our Aged Care Residences, the choice is yours! The STRC programme focuses on rehabilitation through wellness, reablement and restorative approaches to care. The aim of these new packages is to reverse any decline an older person may be experiencing and get them back on track, assisting people in staying in their own homes for longer, living the life they love. Peter Nilsson as the Chief Operations Officer for Village Glen explains “Village Glen recognised a gap in its care model and has worked very hard to develop the STRC programme to provide a new level of care to clients, which we will be doing from July 1 2019” Village Glen is proud to be one of the few providers offering these Government funded rehabilitation services on the Mornington Peninsula. To find out the steps to receiving a STRC package, please call Village Glen today who will walk you through the process and assist along the way.

At Village Glen, Care Matters At Village Glen, we pride ourselves on providing the highest level of care in every facet of our business; retirement living, residential aged care and home care. You can trust Village Glen that the right team is on hand to achieve your care needs. We know that each resident is an individual, with a different history and story to tell. Our professional team listen and learns in order to tailor services to suit you. The resident is at the centre of everything we do.

At Village Glen Retirement Living, this means having a nurse on site and on call 24/7 to respond to the emergency call system. At Village Glen Aged Care Residences, it means having a skilled and caring professional team, caring for and supporting residents and making their experience memorable. At Village Glen Flexicare Home Support, it’s the responsive case management team providing a helping hand to ensure clients remain independent and living the life they love.

Free screenings to help spot cancer THE BreastScreen Victoria van will roll into Frankston on 5 August, offering free breast checks to women over 40. BreastScreen Victoria says that a breast screen is recommended for women older than 50 every two years, to help detect cancer early and act quickly. Frankston resident Tracee DavisHall was diagnosed with stage two breast cancer in June 2017, and said that getting checked regularly is “critical”. She went for a check after her GP asked her if she’d recently had a mammogram. “I felt fine and had a normal health check every 12 months but I couldn’t remember the last time I had a mammogram. I wasn’t self-checking, so I was very lucky my doctor asked the question. I am a lot more vigilant now and I’m really glad I acted on her advice,” Ms Davis-Hall said. “My family were hit harder than me because they felt helpless but I was in control and very matter of fact about it. I broke the treatment path down in stages, didn’t get ahead of myself and took it one step at a time. My grandson, Elijah, was born two months before my diagnosis and seeing him every day made me feel better, especially during the grueling first stages of chemotherapy.” Now two years on from being diagnosed, Ms Davis-Hall said “I worry less, am a lot calmer and I don’t stress about the little things. I’m getting more out of my life and ticking things off my bucket list.” “I was lucky I had a great network of family, friends and work colleagues

Awareness for homeless help A FREE event will take place next week to raise awareness of the work being done to help Frankston families sleeping rough. Frankston Homelessness Network and Community Support Frankston, in partnership with council, will host a barbeque lunch, coffee van, and live music on 8 August to help raise awareness for their work. The day aims to get people connected with services that may help them in times of need. The event will take place during Homelessness Week 2019, which runs from 4 August - 10 August. Frankston mayor Michael O’Reilly said “everyone has the right to secure, affordable, safe and accessible housing. Homelessness can happen to anyone, at any point in their lives. A range of factors can contribute, such as losing a job, suffering illness, mental health problems, family violence, bereavement or relationship breakdown. A lack of affordable housing is also a key issue.” “Council is committed to advocating for improved housing affordability and wherever possible we try to connect homeless people with valuable support services such as Community Support Frankston,” he said. “I would encourage anyone experiencing or at risk of homelessness, to come along to the event. You can speak to people from the range of services about the options available to you, in a relaxed environment.” The event will be at Community Support Frankston, 35 Beach Street, 8 August 9am-12pm.

Battle on for best burger THE battle is on to determine Frankston’s ultimate burger. The inaugural Burger Off challenge will kick off this August, with local cafes and restaurants set to vie for the honour of having Frankston’s most delicious burger. A list of eligible sandwiches can be seen at burgeroff.com.au. Keen burger enthusiasts can also use the website to cast their votes. The mayor Michael O’Reilly said “who will have the best burger in Frankston? Your vote decides.” “There’s a burger for every day of August competing for the ultimate Burger Off bragging rights. Each restaurant or café has created a burger especially for the Burger Off competition,” he said. “Make sure you visit as many participating restaurants and cafes as possible, purchase their special Burger Off creation and rate it via the Burger

Off website.” One burger enthusiast keen to get involved is Frankston based competitive and Australian Ninja Warrior competitor Riley Murphy. “The challenge has been set and it’s a huge commitment to get around and eat every burger across Frankston City during Burger Off, but if anyone can do it, it’s me,” he said. “I’ve had a sneak peek at some of the Burger Off creations and I can’t wait to get my mouth around them. “Find your burger, chomp it down and make your vote count. At the end of August one venue will be crowned the ultimate burger champion and we’ll find out exactly who has the best burger in all the south east.” Follow @burgeroff_franskton on Instagram to see more. Voting for the competition closes 8 September.

‘Healthy ageing’ centre for uni A NATIONAL centre for Healthy ageing will be established at Monash University’s Peninsula campus following a financial agreement between the federal government, Peninsula Health and the university. An existing building at the campus in Frankston will be extended to “accommodate staff and cutting-edge simulation environments/ transformation facilities for research and education for community-based care”. Flinders MP and Health Minister, Greg Hunt, last week said the first “milestone payment” of the government’s $32 million contribution had been made. “The national centre, the first of its kind in Australia, will deliver new research and treatment programs for older people and those with addiction and mental health issues, backed by new state of the art physical testing environments and data infrastructure,” Mr Hunt said. “Bringing together the major health training, education and research activities at Monash’s Peninsula campus and Peninsula Health’s Frankston Hospital, the National Centre for Healthy Ageing will fast track and improve the health care of the nation’s most vulnerable people.” Mr Hunt said the Mornington Peninsula region’s population is one of the fastest ageing in Australia “making it the ideal place to trial innovative health care solutions for older people, whether it be at home or in residential aged care”. “Successful models would then be scaled up and rolled out across Australia.” Mr Hunt said the use of “state-of-the-art living labs” and technology, would see “new models of care focus on delivering greater independence so people can stay at home for longer and avoid unnecessary hospitalisations”. Mathew Langdon, Mr Hunt’s media contact, said ‘living labs’ was “a term used to describe real-life and life-like environments to help ensure research outcomes are easily implementable and lead to quick translation in the health

system”. Priority work of the new centre would include developing strategies and programs “to engage and assist those at risk of having an unwanted transfer to the emergency department, to develop their end of life care plans”, Mr Hunt said. New models of care would be designed using assistive technology within purpose-built facilities to improve quality of life through continued successful living at home and reduced hospital admissions. The centre will also partner with organisations in Frankston and on the peninsula to “identify addiction and severe mental illness solutions at the local level to improve the treatment for Australians with these illnesses”. One of the Frankston campus-based projects would use electronic record data to develop ways of monitoring the prevalence of dementia. The $600,000 grant to Monash University researchers will use the unique aspects of the peninsula region to conduct a pilot study for a program that will be rolled out across Victoria and nationally if successful,” Mr Hunt said. The university had also been given $2 million for a study designed to prevent and reduce the risk of developing dementia in 45-65 year olds. “Without a medical breakthrough, it is predicted that more than 1.1 million Australians will be living with dementia by 2056,” Mr Hunt said. PROFESSOR David Copolov, Dr Johnson George, Greg Hunt, Dr Nadine Andrew, Felicity Topp and Professor Christina Mitchell announce a “national centre for healthy ageing”.

Resources poured into drink drivers A “SIGNIFICANT increase” in injuries and fatalities caused by drink drivers in Frankston and on the Mornington Peninsula has caused police to take action. Operation Armada, which took place on 19 July, saw police set up booze buses in areas where there had been a spike in drink driving. Southern Metro Region Superintendent Adrian White said “our intelligence is telling us that the types of people we predominantly detect for impaired driving are male drivers aged between 19 and 44 and drivers leaving a licensed venue. Our data also shows that tradesmen are over represented for this kind of offending which is a real concern for us.” “Anyone engaging in this incredibly dangerous behaviour is putting themselves and the rest of the community at risk. Police are doing everything we can to curb bad driver behaviour but we also need your help,” he said. “There is never an excuse for getting behind the wheel when impaired by alcohol or drugs. In the south east we’ve lost nearly double the amount of lives on the road compared to this time last year. The number of lives lost so far this year is concerning and shows we cannot afford to be complacent about safety on our roads.”

Drugs in raid SEVEN people have been arrested and several thousand cannabis plants have

been seized after the execution of a series of warrants in Melbourne’s south east, 17 July. Eight warrants were executed at around 6am as part of Operation Escapist, part of an investigation into an alleged organised drug syndicate. The commercial and residential premises raided by police were across Clayton South, Waterways, Springvale, Dandenong South, Pakenham, Rowville and Carrum Downs. The raids saw police seize drugs, drug manufacturing equipment, and cash. Police said that “several significant hydroponic cannabis set-ups” were located inside factory buildings, with some of those holding around 1000 cannabis plants. Cocaine was also seized by police. Four men and three women were arrested and will be interviewed by police. Detective Acting Superintendent Craig Darlow said “drug manufacture, trafficking and use in the Victorian community continues to be a major concern for police.” “Operations like this highlight the links that drugs have to organised crime, plus we are seeing time and time again that many of our most violent crimes such as homicides and shootings have their roots in the drug trade,” he said. “The hydros that have been located today are absolutely on the larger end of the scale and we’re looking at seizing several thousand plants as part of this operation. “Today’s result is incredibly pleasing for police and comes as a result of a lot of work put in not only by Victoria Police, but through working with our

partner agencies.” Anyone information to Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000 or submit a confidential report online at www. crimestoppersvic.com.au

Burglary attempt flounders A FRANKSTON man has been arrested by police after being caught hiding away in a Dandenong fish and chip shop. The 39-year-old is alleged to have dived through the roof of the shop around 8pm, 16 July. Police noticed something was fishy, and found the man hiding in the frozen product display cabinet. The man was charged with burglary and criminal damage and was remanded to appear at Dandenong Magistrates’ Court.

Drive cut short for teenager A SEAFORD teenager out for an early morning drive has been caught by police. A 14-year-old boy was allegedly spotted by police driving a 2010 Ford station wagon with the high beam lights on, around 4.10am 15 July. Police pulled the car over on Seaford Road and spoke to a 14-year-old boy and a 15-year-old passenger. The alleged driver of the vehicle is expected to be charged on summons. He was interviewed by police for unlicensed driving.

Teens arrested POLICE have arrested four teenagers after chasing down an allegedly stolen car, overnight 17 July. Police spotted the Nissan X-Trail, allegedly stolen from Blaxland Avenue Frankston South, driving in Dandenong at around 1am. Police allege that the vehicle took off when they tried to pull them over. The car was monitored through Rowville, Dandenong, Lyndhurst, Skye, Frankston and Carrum Downs. With the assistance of the airwing, the car was spotted and came to a stop on Frankston-Dandenong Road. The occupants of the car allegedly fled on foot into a Wedge Road backyard. A 17-year-old Frankston North girl and a 19-year-old woman from Frankston were arrested by police. With the assistance of the dog squad, a 16 and 17-year-old from Carrum Downs were also arrested. All four are “assisting police with their enquiries”. Police believe a fifth person may still be outstanding. Witnesses or anyone with information can contact Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000.

Kidnapping arrests TWO people have been arrested in relation to an alleged kidnapping in June of 2018. At around 3am, 3 June 2018, two men allegedly damaged another vehicle in Carrum Downs. The driver of the damaged car drove towards Ballarto Road, and the alleged offenders

chased. The victim was allegedly run off the road, and dragged out of the car by the offenders. He was allegedly assaulted and put in the back seat of the car. He later escaped. A 21-year-old man who resides in Carrum Downs faced the Melbourne County Court on 10 July in relation to the incident, and was sentenced. Police say he is expected to be deported. A second man, a 20-year-old from Bittern, is expected to face the Melbourne County Court on 14 August. They both received a number of charges, including kidnapping and criminal damage.

Thefts ‘spike’ FRANKSTON Police are warning people to keep valuables out of their cars after a spike in vehicle break ins in the Langwarrin area. Frankston Crime Investigation Unit Detective Sergeant Luke Holmes said “we urge people to be vigilant. Check that your cars are locked, and put your valuables away.”

Body cams soon BODY cameras will soon be worn by police in Kingston, with 11,000 cameras to be deployed statewide by the end of the year. A police statement said that members “will start recording on their BWC when they are interacting with the public, collecting evidence, at serious incidents, when making an arrest or any other time they consider it necessary to do so.”

Station projects ‘on track’ Sports grant applications open Brodie Cowburn brodie@baysidenews.com.au THE state government has hit back at claims made by the opposition that level crossing removal projects at Cheltenham and Mentone station are “go slow projects”. Liberal South Eastern Metropolitan MP Gordon Rich-Phillips slammed the closing of car parks at the two Frankston line stations, calling temporary options for commuters “extremely inadequate”. Mordialloc MP Tim Richardson told The Times that the car park at Mentone is scheduled to be closed until late 2020, and the Cheltenham car park is to reopen in mid 2021. He said the “project is on track to be completed on schedule”. “Removing three level crossings, digging two rail trenches, and building two new stations is a major infrastructure project. All three level crossings will be gone for good in late 2020,” he said. “To enable these massive works, the station car parks at Cheltenham and Mentone will be temporarily closed. Mentone Station car park will be closed until late 2020, Cheltenham Station carpark will be closed until mid 2021.” The LXRP’s website put out a statement on 17 May which read that “the station car parks will be closed from mid 2019 to late 2020.” Mr Rich-Phillips said “temporary car parks are extremely inadequate, and provide only limited access to parking that will account to less than

half of the 620 spaces being closed.” “A majority of the temporary commuter parking to be provided near Southland Station will be free only to those parked in it prior to 8am on weekdays. Any commuters arriving in that car park after 8am will be subject to standard Westfield Southland ticketless parking fees of up to $35 per day,” he said. “Even worse, the claimed additional car parking spaces announced at nearby Parkdale Station are already in daily use by commuters using that station. Level crossing removals are necessary for our suburbs, but two years without sufficient replacement car parking at Mentone and Cheltenham is far too long for local commuters.”

$500 and $750 to coaches, officials and competitors participating in state, national or international championships. It is open to people from ages 12 to 18. Applications close on 30 September. To apply visit sportaus.gov.au

APPLICATIONS have opened for the next round of the Local Sporting Champions grants. Dunkley MP Peta Murphy said athletes and clubs could contact her office for help with applications. “This program supports junior sports people to compete at various championships by reducing the financial burden,” she said. “I am determined to support more locals to participate and excel in sport, from grassroots right up to professional competitions.” The grants program offers between

Mr Richardson said “there has been no change in the dates the station carparks are closed.” “The LXRP is increasing formal parking spaces along Como Parade East and West in Parkdale to provide a total of 136 temporary spaces for rail users, while 284 free all-day parking spaces will be provided for rail passengers over two locations at Westfield Southland,” he said. “Many users of Cheltenham and Mentone station carparks drive from further down the Frankston line. In addition to the alternative spaces being provided in Parkdale and Southland, it is expected that during major construction drivers will use parking capacity at other nearby stations.”

Older Australians are downsizing their homes and building their super The Downsizer Measure, which started on 1 July 2018, allows older Australians choosing to sell their home and downsize, or move from homes that no longer meet their needs, to contribute up to $300,000 of proceeds from the sale into super. n 4,246 people have used the measure n 55% of contributions have been made by females and 45% by males n people from every state and territory have made a downsizer contribution with the top three states being: NSW (31%), VIC

(26%) and QLD (24%). The Downsizer Measure was one of several super measures announced in the 2017–18 Federal Budget.

Your downsizer contribution will not affect your total super balance until your total super balance is re-calculated to include all your contributions, including your downsizer contributions, on 30 June at the end of the financial year. The downsizer contribution will count towards your transfer balance cap, currently set at $1.6 million. This cap applies when

Start made on Hastings hydrogen plant Keith Platt keith@baysidenews.com.au AN official ground breaking ceremony was conducted at Hastings on Friday (19 July) to mark the start of building a plant to liquefy hydrogen gas for export to Japan. The plant in Bayview Road is an integral part of the supply chain for hydrogen made from brown coal in the Latrobe Valley to be exported to Japan. The state and federal governments have each given $50 million towards the $400 million trial that Kawasaki predicts “will create a new innovative technical foundation for the development of an exciting hydrogen export industry for Australia”. Protesters from eight environment and community groups are unimpressed by such glowing predictions and stood in Bayview Road holding placards and handed out their demands for the return of the $100 million of taxpayers’ money. The protesters say while motorists overseas benefit from hydrogen power, Australia is left to dispose of the carbon released in the process and Western Port’s environment is in danger of marine pests carried in ships’ ballast. “Delivering clean hydrogen to the world for the benefit of our environment is a goal we share deeply, and we look forward to achieving,” Kawasaki’s chairman of the board Shigeru Murayama said. “The hydrogen economy is already materialising in Japan, and it is wonderful to now be breaking ground

Digging in: VIPs lend a hand to ceremonially turn the sod at the Hastings site chosen for a plant to liquefy hydrogen gas for export to Japan.

here in Australia. We are excited to be translating our joint hydrogen vision into reality.” The line of VIPs pictured turning the first sod included federal Resources Minister Matt Canavan, Tourism Trade and Investment Minister Simon Birmingham, the state Treasurer and Economic Development Minister Tim Pallas, Australia’s chief scientist Dr Alan Finkel and Victoria’s lead scientist Dr Amanda Caples. Notably absent from the line-up were peninsula-based politicians Flinders MP and Health Minister Greg Hunt, Nepean Labor MP Chris Brayne and Hastings MP Neale Burgess. During his time as environment minister Mr Hunt frequently spoke about

the utilising Australia’s vast coal resources and, in mid-2014, predicted technology would be available within three to five years to reduce emissions from coal-fired power stations by 30 to 50 per cent. Mr Hunt’s office confirmed he “was not in attendance”. Mr Brayne’s office manager Joshua Sinclair said Mr Brayne had not been invited to the sod turning. Mornington Peninsula Shire mayor Cr David Gill said he was invited but decided against attending “because it would look like I support the process”. “What benefit does the public in Australia get from Japanese motorists having clean energy while we keep the carbon that’s left behind,” Cr Gill said.

The hydrogen plant at Hastings includes a liquefaction building and a storage container to be completed by June 2020, with the target of it operating from 2020 to 2021. Kawasaki says will use its know-how and experiences gained in past liquefied hydrogen and industrial plants to deliver the project safely and on time. “If the full-scale project is too damaging, expensive and inefficient to go ahead, there is no need for this trial they are celebrating today. As they turn the sod, we say sod-off,” Westernport and peninsula Protection Council secretary Karri Giles secretary said in a news release on Friday. “Four industrial processes and three journeys make this project ridiculously

inefficient when, apparently, making hydrogen in Japan out of water and excess renewables is an option.” Friends of the Earth campaigns coordinator Cam Walker said the hydrogen project “is entirely dependent on the successful injection and long term storage of carbon waste into the Ninety Mile Beach seabed, yet despite billions of dollars of investment in this technology it has failed to become viable in Australia”. The group’s coal spokesperson Kate Wattchow sees the brown coal to hydrogen project as “yet another clean coal pipedream, a false-promise to the Latrobe Valley community and an expensive distraction in a time when we need urgent action on climate change”.

100 YEARS AGO THIS WEEK...

Earthworks leave roads in miserable state Compiled by Cameron McCullough FOR weeks the universal cry in this district has been “How long O Lord how long” are we to suffer from the disadvantages of the atrocious and well-nigh impassable roads which are a distinct strain on ones religion. For miles, channels have been prepared for laying water-mains and these are now full of water and beginning to cave in. The resultant earth from the excavations is lying on main roads and the wheels of vehicles which are compelled to traverse these tracks (roads is a misnomer) resemble the wheels of a gun carriage. Apparently the whole work will have to be done again and the question arises – How will the costs compare with the estimates and who pays? To the lay mind it seems strange that sections were not completed and filled in at once, thus avoiding the present results. Evidently there has been mismanagement and muddling somewhere. *** THE members of the Frankston Peace Celebrations Committee are reminded that they are expected to attend a meeting for the purpose of settling accounts in connection with the recent demonstration at the Mechanics’ Hall, at 8 o’clock on Monday night, 28th inst. *** THE monthly meeting of the Seaford Progress Association takes place on Saturday (to-night) at 8 o’clock. Items on the business sheet include: Report of deputation re footpath, school site, motor traffic, smoke social, Carrum Vale Road, and general business by members.

*** AN impromptu dance, arranged by Mrs C. Tait and friends, took place in the Frankston Mechanics’ Hall last Saturday evening (Peace night.) The event proved entirely successful from every point of view and after paying expenses Mrs Tait was able to forward to the Secretary of the Frankston Branch of the Returned Soldiers Association the sum of £1 10s balance of the proceeds, as a donation to the Memorial Hall Fund. *** MR Wm Meldrum, of Somerville, who has disposed of his orchard, has instructed Messrs Brody and Mason to conduct a clearing sale on the property on Thursday, 31st July. Full particulars are advertised. *** AT the Committee meeting of the Ragged Boys’ home held at the Institution, on Tuesday evening, 15th inst, Mr W. Minton, the Hon Supt, presented the report of the recent concert held in the Town Hall, Melbourne, showing the net result to be £320. The chairman (Rev W. T. Roach) stated that the result was gratifying. Mr James Menzies, M.L.A., moved a motion that the architect, Mr A. Bestow, be instructed forthwith to draw up plans for the erection of the new wing at the Melbourne Boys’ Home, Frankston. A vote of thanks was passed to the Hon Physican of the Frankston Home, (Dr Atkinson) for his kind attention to the sick Boys of the Home. *** INTEREST in the forthcoming municipal elections is beginning to stir a little. The sub-division of the North Rid-

ing, whereby Seaford is now a separate Riding, makes it necessary for all three North Riding councillors, viz Crs Oates, Mason and Hoare, to retire. It can be stated definitely that the first two named will seek re-election for the North, and the possibilities are that Cr Hoare will seek one of the Seaford Riding seats. Mr F. W. Wells is spoken of as a likely candidate for the North Riding. He has been approached by a number of ratepayers, and, we understand, has given a favorable reply. At a public meeting held at Seaford a week or two ago, three candidates were nominated for the new Riding. They were, Messrs Armstrong, Howell and Lathan. It is now stated that Mr Armstrong will not be a candidate; as he has disposed of his property, and is leaving the district. It is practically certain that Mr R. McCulloch will accede to the wishes of his supporters and become a candidate for Seaford. It is also rumored that Mr W. Klauer, the hon secretary of Seaford Progress League, will also be in the field. *** THE death of of Mrs Gregory of “Malunnah” Frankston came as a painful shock to the community yesterday. Deceased was one of the best known and most highly respected residents of the district. She had been ailing for some time and on Wednesday last underwent an operation at a private hospital, East Melbourne. Although she appeared to rally after the operation she collapsed later and died early yesterday (Friday) morning. The deepest sympathy is felt for the family in their sad bereavement.

*** OUR LETTER BOX. MR McCOMB REPLIES. To the Editor. Sir,—May I further ask indulgence to trespass on your space while replying to strictures made by Mr. F. H. Wells in your issue of the 12th inst. His letter purports to be an answer to mine of the 28th ult., and is chiefly noticeable for its inaccuracies and personal aspersions. First, he impugns the genuineness of my letter, and then launches into an open attack. Neither of these, however, give me grave concern; yet it might be well to assure him that I am still sufficiently vigorous intellectually to have no necessity for signing my name under the contribution of another, neither is it my wont to make statements that are not literally and absolutely true. He suggests that my use of the word “reserve” is an inaccurate expression, and I certainly did not expect that necessity would be laid upon me to define it. I assumed that persons of average intelligence would know that land reserved from sale as freehold and set apart for a specific purpose is called a reserve, and when “the” is placed before same it indicates the meaning to be attached thereto, and, despite Mr. Wells’ effort for my enlightenment, I have not yet learned that the local cemetery is not a reserve because it is used for the purpose for which it was set apart. He does not deny that the destruction complained of was caused by fire, but seeks to justify the same by reference to the presence of weeds and undergrowth as a harbour for vermin, which

are matters foreign to my complaint, and in no way justify the use of fire without proper provision for its control. If the place was then such a disgrace, in my opinion it is much more so now, despite the liberal expenditure of time, energy, and cash since bestowed for its beautification. But I pass on to deal with his simile. He writes “The trees were like your critical correspondent, their day of ornament had passed.” Well, I admit that this, as a compliment in disguise, is alike flattering and consoling. It is gratifying to learn, even upon the authority of Mr. Wells, that I was once an ornament – a feeling I fear he will never share – but this likeness in beauty does not exhaust the simile. Mr. Wells found that after their day of ornament had passed these trees were useful for firewood, and so I, to complete his figure, must be still useful, and as use is better than ornament, I grieve not, seeing that I have been useful in eliciting a balance-sheet, which probably otherwise would not have been produced. I, however, unhesitatingly deny that the trees referred to had ceased to be ornamental, in any way endangered tombstones, or that there was any necessity for their removal. He says there are a few tons of wood remaining that I may have at that price, but he fails to state what authority he has for cutting down, removal, or sale of timber, hence how can he expect me to avail myself of his offer? I am, Sir; yours etc., JOSEPH R. McCOMB. *** FROM the pages of the Mornington Standard, 26 July 1919

THE MEANING OF EXISTENCE... AND OTHER SHORT STORIES

Great Moments in History: A Salute to Planking By Stuart McCullough IT was one of those ‘blink and you’ll miss it’ moments. One during which our gradual evolution as high functioning intelligent beings was briefly sacrificed for a moment of collective madness. It was a moment in which common sense, logic and – most tellingly of all – personal safety were set aside in pursuit of something that, at the time seemed overwhelmingly important but now – with the benefit of hindsight – seems unforgivably dumb. I speak, of course, of planking. Some things drag on for decades. Others burn briefly but brightly and, once they’re gone, all we have left are the comet-trails and a tonne of awkward selfies left to remind us of what was. When the history of this country is written, I hope it will include a brief chapter on planking. Granted, it was a fad that (at least according to Wikipedia) ‘gained popularity and eventually notoriety from late 2010 to early 2011 in Australia’, but it left us forever changed. (Incidentally, as a rule of thumb, you know you’ve crossed a line when the Internet feels the need to single you out for special mention. Just saying.) It was beautiful in its simplicity. All you had to do is lie down and pretend you were a wooden plank. That was the whole shebang. There was no training, no special skills, no complicated instructions. Anyone could participate. And anyone pretty much did. If that sounds too good to be true, there’s a twist: it’s not enough just to plank, you have to do so in an unexpected location. Be it an office chair, a footpath or – for those with an appetite for danger – on top of a really tall building. Then someone needs to take a picture of it. The art of planking might have seemed as though it came out of nowhere but, in fact, there was a surprisingly long gestation period. It was apparently developed in America in 1984 by a couple of teenagers. Two different teenagers took to another level by videoing their efforts

in the early nineties. But planking didn’t really take off as an international phenomenon until about 2007 when someone decided to post photos on Facebook. Ah, Facebook. It’s funny how often the various plagues of humanity can be traced back to the same social media platform. Whether it’s promoting planking or undermining democracy in exchange for advertising revenue in an act of unreconstructed treason, Facebook is always at the centre of the action. And so it was that planking took off (which is ironic, given how sedentary it is) right across the globe, particularly in Australia.

Things got out of hand. Quickly. Soon people were posting pictures of themselves planking in places where to plank was simply a very bad idea. People did it at work. People did it at the supermarket. One guy in Brisbane did it on a seventh floor balcony and lost his balance, plunging to his death. Ultimately, New Zealand Prime Minister John Key did it on a couch (for safety’s sake) and was accused of ruining it for everyone. Just as quickly as it appeared, it vanished. Almost overnight, talk of adding it to the school curriculum and including it as an Olympic sport dried up. People even lost interest in including planking on the twenty-dollar

note. The dream was over. Although planking as a fad has disappeared, it remains a legitimate form of exercise for those wishing to strengthen their core. For these people, planking always occurs in a safe environment. Somewhere, though, there’ll still be true believers; small pockets of plankers whose activities have been driven underground (which, incidentally, would be a very safe place to plank) as a means of avoiding social stigma. Doubtless they meet in secret and compare planking strategies, dreaming of the day when planking will be re-embraced by the general population. There have been other fads since. Things that have seized the public imagination before demanding a ransom and reluctantly letting it go again. There’s been dabbing (which ruined a generation of school photos), flossing (which insulted every dentist ever) and posting a video of yourself belting out ‘Let It Go’ at the top of your lungs while in full costume with your eyes closed. Or, on second thoughts, the ‘Let It Go’ thing could just be me. Next year is the tenth anniversary of ‘planking fever’. It’s an occasion that should not be allowed to slip by without remark. It should be celebrated. I’m not sure how best to commemorate this truly important time in our history. Coin? Commemorative stamp? A ‘first planking’ re-enactment on Sydney Harbour? A public holiday is a given. It would be poetic justice if celebrations included a statue, given that statues were prime planking targets back in the day. It’s funny what catches on. What, as a group, becomes important to us. As a kid, a yo-yo craze was an intermittent event that occurred in your local primary school and saw you and your classmates hotfoot it down to your local milk bar. The Internet has made that a universal experience. Happy planking to all. stuart@stuartmccullough.com Frankston Times

Pythons snatch victory DIVISION ONE

By Brodie Cowburn PINES have come from behind to secure a thrilling win against Frankston Bombers.The Bombers raced out of the blocks with a brilliant first quarter, putting four goals on the board and holding the Pythons scoreless. Pines scraped their way back in the second quarter, but couldn’t snatch the lead. They were wasteful in front of goal and kicked 2.7 in the second term. The Pythons continued to fight in the second half, and managed to just sneak into a one point lead by the time the three-quarter time break rolled around. They held onto that one point lead in the final term, and eventually claimed the narrowest of wins. Frankston Bombers ended up falling to Pines in a nailibing scrap. The final score read 6.10 (46) to 6.11 (47). Luke Potts was named as one of Pines’ best, while Khyal Jacobson also was important with a three goal effort. Jarrad Grant kicked three goals for the Bombers, There was another thrilling contest at Emil Madsen Reserve, as Mt Eliza played host to Dromana. The Tigers started well away from home and took a lead into the second quarter, although it didn’t last long. The Redlegs fought back and led by a goal at the half time break. Mt Eliza continued to play well in the third term, and looked in the box seat for a victory as they went into the final quarter with a fourteen point lead.

Dromana worked hard in the last quarter, and set themselves up with a chance of victory by holding Mt Eliza to just one goal. The Tigers had to claw their way back, but eventually scored a hard fought six point win over the Redlegs. The final score was 10.12 (72) to 12.6 (78). Sam Fowler was best on field for the victorious Dromana outfit. He kicked four goals. Rosebud and Frankston YCW also had a tense encounter on Saturday, as Frankston YCW hit the road in an effort to get their season back on track. The Stonecats have been inconsistent this year, and were badly in need of a win against the Buds. Rosebud on the other hand have improved from their performance last year. Rosebud started strong with a good first quarter, holding YCW scoreless. They took a 26 point lead into the second term, which was quickly cut down to ten by half time. The third quarter was another good one for Rosebud, as they stretched their lead back out to 27. The Stonecats tried their best to claw back into contention and snatch a win in the final quarter, but it was too little too late. Rosebud were held goalless in the final term, and had to endure a late flurry, but they still claimed the win 10.6 (66) to 8.12 (60). Sean Downie was best on ground for the day. Things were not so stressful this weekend for Bonbeach who managed to secure a comfortable win over bot-

tom of the ladder Mornington. The Bulldogs started well and led at the first break of play, but it didn’t last long. Bonbeach rode a strong wave of momentum in front of their home

crowd, and did not look like losing after their sloppy first quarter. Trent Dennis-Lane led from the front for Bonbeach, putting six goals on the board for the afternoon.

Despite a good start, the Bulldogs hopes of staying in Division One next season were dealt a blow after Bonbeach defeated them 15.12 (102) to 4.9 (33).

Finals hopes dented for Blues DIVISION TWO

By Brodie Cowburn HASTINGS have fallen short in an important matchup at home against Rye on Saturday. The game looked to be a good chance for Hastings to get a win and keep touch with a finals spot. Rye came into the game below Hastings on the ladder. Hastings looked the better side in a scrappy first half. They led at both quarter-time and half time, but not by enough to be comfortable. Rye looked a much improved side after half time, and held Hastings to just two goals in the second half. The Demons rose from the dead to take a two point lead into the final quarter which they were able to hold on to. A win would have been vital to keep Hastings in touch of a finals position, but they could not manage to get the four points. The final score read Hastings 6.6 (42) to 7.11 (53). Harry Whitty was one of Rye’s best, kicking three goals. At Ballam Park Reserve, Karingal came from behind to secure a good win over Chelsea. The Seagulls were the better side early, and took a two goal lead into half time. The Bulls charged back in the third quarter, and held a narrow three point lead at three-quarter time. Karingal showed why they have been one of the best sides of the year with a strong final quarter. They shot

Frankston Times

down the Seagulls’ hopes of an upset with a 5.10 to 0.0 quarter. Kairngal scored the win 11.22 (88) to 7.3 (45). Marc Holt was leading goalkicker on the day with four. He has 62 for the year. Red Hill bounced back from the goalless performance last week with a massive win over Pearcedale. Pearcedale hosted the Hillmen, and struggled from the get go. They scored one first quarter goal, but only managed one behind for the rest of the afternoon. Red Hill put together another defensive masterclass, and reaffirmed their status as one of the premiership contenders. Pearcedale were whallopped by 118 points. The final score was 1.1 (7) to 17.23 (125). At Lloyd Park, Langwarrin had little trouble fending off a challenge from Seaford. Langwarrin showed their intent early with a seven goals to one first quarter. The Tigers weren’t able to recover from their sloppy start. Josh Biggs had a big game for the Kangaroos, and put six goals on the board. His side claimed the win 15.8 (98) to 7.10 (52). Somerville had an enjoyable day at home, as they defeated Tyabb by 103 points. It was a goal fest for the soaring Somerville, who had 12 individual goalkickers. Ryan Gillis scored six while Daniel Marshall booted four.

The Yabbies were outclassed on the day, with the final scoreboard reading 23.15 (153) to 7.8 (50). It was also another difficult day for

Crib Point, who were defeated at home by Devon Meadows 9.6 (60) to 15.13 (103). Joel Hillis booted four for the Panthers.

FRANKSTON TIMES scoreboard

Five-star display by Dylan Waugh SOCCER

By Craig MacKenzie A STUNNING performance from Seaford striker Dylan Waugh highlighted last weekend’s round of matches. The gun forward scored all of Seaford’s goals in a 5-1 trouncing of FC Noble Hurricanes at North Seaford Reserve on Saturday. Harry McCartney reports that the Waugh onslaught started after just five minutes when he won a 50/50 challenge with the last Hurricanes defender then easily sidefooted the ball home. Seaford dominated the first half but had to wait until the 39th minute to gain reward for its efforts when Waugh pounced on a bouncing ball and delicately tapped it over the head of Hurricanes keeper Andrea Stoilovic to make it 2-0. But two minutes later the visitors hit back when Nicholas Phaedonas got a toe to the ball in a crowded box to keep them in the hunt. Waugh gave Seaford breathing space and notched his hat-trick in the 54th minute when he was given time to unleash a 25-metre drive into the top corner leaving Stoilovic fuming with his defence. Stoilovic added to his frustration three minutes later when he misjudged a free-kick and Waugh caught out the flat-footed Hurricanes defence to make it 4-1. When Mitch Lander was brought down inside the area in the 62nd minute there was little doubt about who would take the resultant penalty and Waugh didn’t disappoint as he slotted home his fifth to complete an impressive day at the office for the big man. Things for the visitors went from bad to worse in the 87th minute when substitute Erik Pulo was sent off. In NPL news Langwarrin strolled to a comfortable 4-0 win over Springvale White Eagles at Lawton Park on Saturday without midfielder Wayne Wallace who was rested or defenders Luke Burgess and Jamie Cumming who were suspended. Lucas Portelli opened the scoring in the 13th minute when he was at the near post to head home a Jordan Templin free kick from the left. A superb move down the right involving Damir Stoilovic and Callum Goulding ended with the latter cutting the ball back to Thomas Ahmadzai whose shot was touched in by John Baird to make it 2-0 four minutes from half-time. In the 71st minute Brandon Jansz played in substitute David Stirton whose strike across the face of goal was tapped in by Stoilovic putting his former club out of the contest.

High five: Seaford striker Dylan Waugh had a day out at North Seaford Reserve on Saturday. Picture: John Punshon.

A good day’s work was completed two minutes later when an extravagant Stoilovic lay-off was volleyed home by Goulding in superb style. In NPLW news Southern United lost 3-0 to Geelong Galaxy United at Monterey Reserve last weekend. Southern’s under-19s won 4-1 with goals from Sita Karimi (2) and Talia Palmer (2) while the under-16s drew 3-3 with Rhys McKenna (2) and Sage Kirby scoring for Southern and Tanysha Hogan named player of the match. The under-14s won 1-0 thanks to Chiara Renzeme’s first goal of the season and a player of the match performance from South Melbourne recruit Ellena Zissis. Meanwhile the reputation of former Langwarrin junior Alana Murphy continues to grow after the gifted teenager was named player of the tournament at the under-15 national championships at Coffs Harbour last week. The 13-year-old has been involved with Victoria’s National Training Centre program for the past few seasons and was used both in midfield and up front by Victoria to showcase her talents with junior Matildas coach Rae Dower a keen onlooker. In State 1 news Mornington lost 2-1 at home to Caulfield United Zebras last weekend. The home side was set back on its heels with two Caulfield goals in the opening 20 minutes, the first a low leftfoot shot from Cory Kibler-Melby and the second an own goal from defender Charlie Parker. Mornington hit back in the 30th minute when Sam Luxford was at the back post to finish from a Craig Smart free kick and despite long periods of the second half played inside Mornington’s

attacking half it couldn’t break down Caulfield’s resistance. Striker Josh Hine has returned to England for three weeks but Scottish striker Liam Baxter came off the bench for his first appearance sign rejoining Mornington a fortnight ago. In State 2 news a controversial finish marred the 2-2 draw between Doncaster Rovers and Peninsula Strikers at Anderson Park on Friday night. Goals by Michael Hoogendyk and Matt Harrington gave Strikers a 2-0 lead after 55 minutes but Abdirahman Ahmed reduced the deficit in the 65th minute. In the 90th minute a hotly contested penalty decision gave Sayed Hussain the chance to level the scores and he made no mistake from the spot. Strikers keeper Colin McCormack and Hussain were involved in a clash straight after the penalty had been taken and after an intervention by the linesman McCormack was red carded. In State 3 news Skye United hammered cellar dwellers Middle Park 5-1 at Albert Park on Saturday. Skye kicked off proceedings in the 7th minute when Daniel Attard’s switch sent Marcus Anastasiou clear, and the youngster rounded Middle Park custodian Fadi Qunqar and finished into an unguarded goal. Mitch Blake doubled the lead in the 27th minute when he got on the end of a Saj Sugrim cross from the left. The second half was much of the same as Skye dominated and when Mark O’Connor sent Attard clear in the 58th minute the big man put the ball into the top corner. Skye won possession straight from the restart and Attard sent Blake clear who rounded the keeper to make it 4-0.

Substitute Michael Turner was brought down inside the box in the 77th minute and Daniel Walsh made it 5-0. Middle Park’s consolation goal came in the 90th minute when the ball was bundled over the goal line. Skye reserves coach Liam George resigned last week for personal reasons not connected to the club. He was in his fourth season at the helm. State 3 rival Frankston Pines led twice but had to settle for a 2-2 draw with Brighton at Monterey Reserve on Friday night. Three late goals in six minutes had spectators glued to the action and left Pines ruing the one that got away. It took a special strike from 18-yearold Pines central defender Aiden McKenna to break the deadlock in the 55th minute. Brighton failed to clear properly following a corner and Bailey Atkinson touched the ball off to McKenna outside the box and he curled a stunning leftfoot strike into the top far corner. In the 85th minute a superb ball in from the right was headed home from point-blank range by Brighton substitute Nick Bale to make it 1-1. Five minutes later Travis Ernsdoerfer’s commitment and perseverance saw him block the ball then chase it down and just keep it in play wide on the left. He checked back inside then sent over a near post cross that was touched in by Kevin Brown for what looked like the winner. A minute later Pines’ players and bench were in dismay when Kia Walsh made it 2-2 from close range. Striker Jason Bradbury has left Pines and joined Queensland NPL club Sunshine Coast Fire. He had switched to Pines from Mornington during the offseason. In State 4 news Baxter lost 3-2 at home to Endeavour United last weekend. Endeavour hit the front in the 8th minute when Ifeoluwa Ogidan got free on the left of the area and finished superbly past Baxter keeper James Foster. Two minutes later Charlie Jones scored with a well-taken strike after Endeavour failed to clear a Baxter corner. But the visitors took a 2-1 lead into the interval after a Foster mistake gifted a goal to Ahmed Tabbara. A superb Stuart McKenzie header in the 50th minute made it 2-2 but Baxter was caught square at the back 10 minutes later and Ogidan made it pay dearly when he broke clear and neatly slotted the ball past the advancing Foster for what proved to be the winner.

ROUND 18

A bizarre moment arrived in the 69th minute when Endeavour’s Harry Herouvim was red carded. He’d been booked minutes earlier after scything down Nat Daher and when he decided to grab the flag and fling it out of his way as he prepared to take a corner the referee sprang to the flag’s defence with a second caution. Daher too was given his marching orders after a second caution in the 82nd minute. In State 5 news Somerville Eagles inflicted Tullamarine’s first home defeat of the season with a 3-1 win on Saturday. The Eagles did the double against Tulla and no prizes for guessing who opened the scoring. A brilliant through ball from Mark Pagliarulo in the 13th minute was clinically despatched by Dave Greening for his 50th goal for the club and his 300th in Australia. With half-time looming a wind-assisted free-kick wasn’t cleared and substitute Ugur Erdem poked the ball home for the equaliser. In the 53rd minute Pagliarulo found some space and fired an unstoppable drive past the keeper before celebrating in style after being subjected to a torrent of abuse. In the 66th minute Callum Richardson grabbed his fifth goal in three games with a superb strike that went in off the post after good work by Pagliarulo and Ben Meiklem. Tulla’s Benan Kuzucu and Somerville’s Eric Manhanong were both sent off in injury time. Aspendale Stingrays went down 3-1 at home to White Star Dandenong last weekend with Anthony Segavac scoring for the Stingrays. Aspendale’s best were Peter Dimopoulos, Patrick Diakogeorgiou and Sonny Lindsay. This weekend’s games: SATURDAY, 3pm: Southern Utd v Bayside Utd (Monterey Reserve; under12s 9am, under-14s 10.10am, under-16s 11.30am, under-19s 1pm), Mornington v Warragul Utd (Lawton Park), Bayside Argonauts v Skye Utd (Shipston Reserve), South Yarra v Frankston Pines (Fawkner Park South), Keysborough v Seaford Utd (Coomoora Reserve), FC Noble Hurricanes v Baxter (Alex Nelson Reserve), Somerville Eagles v Aspendale Stingrays (Tyabb Central Reserve), Rosebud v White Star Dandenong (Olympic Park).
