Free legal service faces ‘funding crisis’

THE Peninsula Community Legal Centre in Frankston says it will have to cut some of its free services if its government funding doesn’t increase. The PCLC offers free legal services and advice to people across many areas, including housing, family

arrangements, employment, health, finances, and personal safety. PCLC CEO Jackie Galloway says that the centre is helping more people than ever in the midst of the cost of living crisis, and that increased funding is badly needed.

“With so many struggling with the cost of living and housing crises, we are seeing an unprecedented number of people who are buckling under the

weight of their legal problems coming to us for help,” Galloway said. “Just at the time when the community needs us the most, we are facing a funding crisis and cannot meet this unprecedented demand for our services. Both the federal and state governments need to take action to increase our funding this year or we will be at risk of having to cut programs and staff to address the funding shortfall.”

The PCLC estimates that a quarter of its clients reside within the federal electorate of Dunkley. A little more than 70 per cent of them are financially disadvantaged, and one third are living with a disability or mental health issue.

With the Dunkley by-election looming on 2 March, The Times asked major party candidates Jodie Belyea and Nathan Conroy if they planned

to advocate for more funding for the PCLC if elected - neither responded before publication deadline. Frankston MP Paul Edbrooke was also contacted for comment.

Galloway says that more than half of the PCLC’s work in the last six months was in the family law field.

High-rise hearings underway

A VCAT hearing has assessed a proposed multi-storey building at 446-450 Nepean Highway in Frankston.

Frankston Council approved plans for a 14 storey tower at 446-450 Nepean Highway in November 2022. The proposal, titled Harbour Frankston, will be built at the former home of the Pint and Pickle restaurant if it gets VCAT’s approval.

The VCAT hearing took place last week on Thursday, 22 February, and will return a finding soon. The Long Island Residents Group Inc and the Frankston Beach Association Inc were listed among the objectors.

The apartment building plans were ap-

proved by Frankston Council with a 5-4 vote. Those plans, as well as plans for a 16-storey building at 438-444 Nepean Highway set to be considered by VCAT soon, sparked protests throughout 2023. “Stop the Great Wall Of Frankston” protesters again met to voice their opposition last week. Building heights in Frankston’s CBD, including the Nepean Highway near Kananook Creek, are currently undergoing a raft of changes. Council’s FMAC structure plan is going through the planning panel process - the plan outlines new preferred height limits of up to 54 metres, around 16 storeys, in parts of Frankston’s CBD. Planning minister

Sonya Kilkenny has implemented interim 12 storey limits near Kananook Creek in the meantime (“Higher height limits approved” The Times 30/10/23).

Plans for a 15-storey building at 424426 Nepean Highway in Frankston have also been submitted to council for approval. They were exhibited in December.

The planned developments have come back into focus during the Dunkley byelection. Liberal candidate for Dunkley Nathan Conroy has been Frankston mayor for the last three years, and has championed the FMAC structure plan and its new height limits throughout his tenure. Brodie Cowburn

CPR saves Frankston father

A HEART attack nearly killed Frankston father Duncan Rodger last year. Nearly six months on, he has been reunited with the paramedics who helped save his life.

Rodger, 44, was asleep last September when his wife Kim noticed his breathing had changed. She quickly phoned 000, but the situation soon worsened.

Shortly after calling emergency services her husband stopped breathing. She began administering CPR, and kept going for eight minutes while paramedics arrived. Rodger said that the quick thinking saved his life.

“If she didn’t know CPR I wouldn’t have made it. If she didn’t know it there’d be no chance I’m here right now. It’s very important to stay on top of that,” Rodger said. “For the general public you want to refresh it every now and then - it’s very important someone knows CPR.

“I went to bed feeling like I had indigestion, so I had an antacid. My wife realised I was breathing funny when I was asleep, and my arm was hanging out the side of the bed. She tried waking me up, but I didn’t wake up, and once she had done that I stopped breathing. She started CPR and called the ambos, and they worked on me for a while while I went into cardiac arrest.”

Kim Rodger said “while I was on the phone to 000, Duncan stopped breath-

ing. I had to start CPR straight away. I never thought the first time I did CPR would be on my husband.”

Paramedics took over and helped keep Duncan Rodger alive. Last week at Ballam Park, he reunited with the emergency services workers who saved him.

“I owe my life to them. If not for them I wouldn’t have spent Christmas with my family,” Rodger said. “My wife as well is the reason I’m still here. They all worked together to help me, and I can’t put into words just how thankful I am.”

Rodger has made a full recovery since his heart attack. Mobile intensive care ambulance paramedic Nathan Greenland says that if CPR hadn’t been administered at the scene, he would have died. “Kim recognised something wasn’t right and she started the first part of the chain of survival by calling triple zero early and starting CPR until help could arrive,” Greenland said. “It’s great to know that Duncan is now home and his kids have their dad back.”

Rodger has also urged people to be more aware of their health. “Swallow your pride and go to the doctor more often. I’ve never been to the doctor so many times lately. Leading up to the heart attack I never had a normal doctor and I’d never go - I couldn’t remember the last time I went,” he said.

Ambulance Victoria estimates that around 80 per cent of cardiac arrests happen at home. To learn more about CPR training visit ambulance.vic.gov. au/call-push-shock

Family law services at risk

Continued from page 1

“Our family violence duty lawyer recently represented a woman with a complex series of legal problems who illustrates the kind of client we would no longer be able to assist in the same way without additional funding to continue our services at current levels. In this case, our duty lawyer assisted our client to obtain a family violence intervention order against her husband at the Frankston Magistrates’ Court. Our lawyers also successfully assisted her with her divorce hearing at the Family Court, as well as a criminal charge for driving while suspended due to accumulated fines, resulting in the charge and fine being withdrawn,” Galloway said. “Without the support of PCLC’s legal expertise she would have been unlikely to resolve these life-altering problems as successfully, if at all.”

The centre has also recently assisted people

being evicted from housing, and helped block rent increases. It has represented renters at 367 VCAT hearings in the last year.

The PCLC estimates that community legal centres in Australia are forced to turn away more than 200,000 people each year under the current funding model “Access to justice should not be based on the size of your wallet,” Galloway said. “Without our services, many in our community would be at risk of continuing exposure to threats such as family violence, homelessness, or out of control debt.

“Community legal centres are facing a national funding crisis. We are calling on the Commonwealth government to increase funding to the sector by $125m per year to ensure that programs and services aren’t forced to close.”

Dunkley campaign heats up

CANDIDATES in the 2 March Dunkley by-election are in the home stretch of the campaign.

The by-election was triggered by the death of incumbent MP Peta Murphy in December. Both major parties announced their candidates in January - Jodie Belyea will seek to retain the seat for Labor, and Frankston mayor Nathan Conroy has been chosen to try and overcome a 6.3 percent margin to win it for the Liberals.

All candidates in the by-election have put cost of living at the forefront of the campaign. Labor has been speaking about its changes to stage three tax cuts, which will save most Dunkley residents hundreds of dollars each year. It has also been highlighting its recent establishment of a Medicare Urgent Care Clinic in Frankston and other healthcare initiatives.

The Liberals are making infrastructure spending promises in a bid to win the seat. Opposition leader Peter Dutton has promised $900 million towards the electrification and duplication of the Stony Point line from Frankston to Baxter. The money, which is well short of the $1.5 billion costed to complete the project in a 2019 business case, is dependent on the Coalition winning next year’s federal election.

Both major party leaders have been frequent fixtures around the electorate this year. On Sunday Prime Minister Anthony Albanese visited Frankston as part of a final push to retain the seat - he highlighted fee-free

WHAT’S NEW...

TAFE and stage three tax cuts as two of the federal government’s key policies heading into the by-election.

“Our commitment on fee-free TAFEwhich was 180,000 people - has not only been met, it’s been exceeded, with 350,000 fee-fee TAFE places commencing last year and in addition to that another 300,000 starting this year. What that shows is that Labor’s measures to address cost of living pressures, whilst putting downward pressure on inflation, are having an impact,” he said.

“This week we had the announcement that in 2023, real wages grew, and grew much faster than was predicted by Treasury. With that 4.2 per cent figure of wage growth (...) real wages are going up, inflation is going down. And as a result of our cost of living tax cuts, every single taxpayer in Dunkley will get a tax cut.”

Peter Dutton visited Frankston on 18 February to campaign with Conroy. He drew attention to Conroy’s work on council, saying “he’s a person who, as mayor, has the confidence of his colleagues. Over three years, in an unprecedented way, they voted him in because they know that he’s got the plan and he’s rolling it out for his local communitya 20-year vision that he’s been able to work up.”

“He’s put money into sporting clubs and into infrastructure to provide for local families, for people as they age in the community, those with special needs, because he’s prioritised them above the bureaucracy and above where money could be spent otherwise,” Dutton said.

The campaign has grown more heated

in the last two weeks. Conservative lobby group Advance Australia ran a full page attack ad in the Herald Sun last week addressed towards Dunkley voters. The ad targeted Labor over the High Court’s 2023 ruling that indefinite detention is unlawful. The federal government was bound to follow that ruling.

Comments made by Belyea in the wake of the voice referendum have also received some media attention. She said that the outcome displayed “white privilege”.

Conroy’s employment history has been the subject of scrutiny on Sky News and in the Australian Financial Review. Conroy described himself as the “general manager of a multi-million dollar business” at age 24 in a 2021 interview with Irish publication Echo Live. The role he was describing was with the Richmond Union Bowling Club.

Frankston MP Paul Edbrooke has written to Frankston Council asking it to investigate the matter.

“Nathan Conroy isn’t dumb, he knows that telling people he was the manager of a sports club, serving beers and calling bingo with zero credentials didn’t sound as impressive as saying he was a 24-year-old general manager of a multi-million dollar business. He just didn’t expect to get caught,” Edbrooke said.

The Dunkley candidates in ballot order are Nathan Conroy (Liberal), Bronwyn Currie (Animal Justice), Chrysten Abraham (Libertarian), Reem Yunis (Victorian Socialists), Darren Bergwerf (Independent), Alex Breskin (Greens), Heath McKenzie (Australian Democrats), and Jodie Belyea (Labor).

Red Hill Show returns this Labour Day weekend– for the 96th time

SATURDAY 9 March the Red Hill Reserve

will be home to the Red Hill Show for the 96th time. This year organisers recognise the cost of living crisis and have cancelled the Rich Fruit Cake competition, replacing it with the more accessible Undressed Pavlova competition.

“Dried fruit, butter and energy have all shot up,” says Executive Officer, Bec Davis. “We were watching out fruit cake entries dwindle over the years. We made the hard decision to replace the comp with a pav which costs a third the price to make.” Live judging commences at 10am at the Mornington Peninsula Producers’ Paddock with Noela MacLeod AO from the CWA judging the comp. Host and food writer Richard Cornish (Good Food, ABC Radio) will be joined by former actor/dancer and local MP Paul Mercurio to judge the Golden Sausage Competition – with a rich $500 cash prize for the best sausage. Organisers are urging bakers to vie for the $500 prize for the best apple pie.

Visitors to the family friendly show can taste local Mornington Peninsula Produce such BBQ sweet corn from Hawkes Farm, ciders made from local apples brewed by Mock, Harts Farm and Seven Oaks. Joining them are winemakers from Barmah Park and the award winning distilling team from Bass & Flinders. Local seafarers Harry Mussels will tell us about a life at sea raising amazing mussels and the seaweed growing team, also based at Flinders, Southern Seagreens will be giving out tasters of their freshly harvested and dried kelp.

Back this year is the sweat and axemanship of the woodchop as hardened experts race to cut through great logs of solid hardwood. “We are lucky to have a competition this year, let alone play host to a Victorian Championship,” Bec commented. The mountain men and women from the Red Hill Football Club return with the height of athletic competition including some old time classics - Egg n Spoon Race, Tug of

War and the much-anticipated Gumboot Throw.

Open to all to compete. You will need the help of a hound to enter the Novelty Dog Show which including Best Dressed Dog, Dog Most Like Its Owner and Happiest Dog.

Looking after country the show is home this year to Willum Warrain Bush Nursery, an ILLUM Aboriginal community-owned bush nursery specialising in local indigenous plants from the Mornington Peninsula and environment zone displaying alternative energy sources including solar power, electric vehicles & farm equipment. Monash Uni will have on show their new solar powered generator. Interactive stalls to educate and engage.

These join the cattle, sheep and poultry judging, the alpacas stand and the heritage sheds filled with fruit, vegetables, scones, cakes, artwork, cut flowers and other handicraft all vying for a much coveted blue ribbon. Lamb lovers will appreciate the Sheep Show including display by Binbarra farm of their cute Valais Blacknose and English Leicester Sheep and John Pederson, Luxton Black and his rare black Wiltshire Horn.

Thanks to the Mornington Peninsula Shire, our sponsors and our community. The Peninsula, at its best will be on show Saturday 9th March.

Winning cup skipper open to questions

ONE

John Bertrand AO, who skippered Australia II to victory in the 1983 America's Cup, will be guest speaker at the Mornington Yacht Club’s foundation business lunch on Friday 5 April.

The win etched Bertrand’s name into sporting history, ending 132 years of American supremacy in the prestigious sailing race, and giving Australia its only win in the event’s history.

The now 77-year-old went on to represent Australia in five America's Cups, 1970, 1974, 1980, 1983 and 1995, and two Olympic Games, Munich 1972 and Montreal 1976, winning bronze in Montreal in the

Finn class.

Bertrand's name hit the global headlines again in 1995 when the yacht he was skippering in the America’s Cup race against Team New Zealand was battered by strong winds, heavy seas and rain, and sank in 152 metres of water. It was the first boat lost in the 144 years of the contest and the most destructive day.

As recently as January 2023, sailing with George Richardson and Lewis Brake, Bertrand won the 2023 Australian Etchells Championship at the Cruising Yacht Club of South Australia. The nine-race event was held over six days.

These days the sailing legend men-

tors young aspiring Olympians and, as a keynote speaker, inspires corporates, students and community groups to achieve performance goals.

He is also an entrepreneur and philanthropist, having built companies in the marine industry, property development and media industries.

As chair and president of Swimming Australia from 2013 until October 2020, he led with the simple vision of encouraging his charges to become world’s best in everything they undertook.

Bertrand will be taking questions at the Mornington Yacht Club lunch. Bookings at trybooking.com/events/ landing/1185428

Shire looks to Frankston for help with homeless

MORNINGTON Peninsula Shire

Council will investigate partnering with Frankston to help tackle homelessness on the peninsula, amid increasing concerns about its social impacts.

At last Tuesday’s council meeting Cr Sarah Race said she knew of cases where children were attending schools while living in tents.

“Schools are feeding these children, putting their arms around them and feeding them,” she said.

Race said she was also aware of service widows being forced to live in cars, and cancers sufferers sleeping rough on the foreshore.

She said “outcomes” were good in Frankston, which uses the “by-name list” model through its Frankston City Strategic Housing and Homelessness Alliance led by Frankston Council and Launch Housing.

“I believe in collaborative partnerships (…) we don’t need to reinvent the wheel,” she said.

The by-name list model involved agencies creating lists of names of people who were rough sleeping or homeless and recording and maintaining real-time data to measure progress.

“If you know who people are, they don’t have to bounce around

services,” Race said.

She said the shire council needed to commit to “doing something”.

Race’s unanimously adopted motion called for $70,000 a year to be referred to the budget to implement a model of homelessness, and for more money to be given to community support centres at Hastings, Mornington and Rosebud.

Council will also lobby the state and federal governments for money to implement the model and increase emergency relief on the peninsula.

CEO at Southern Peninsula Community Support Jeremy Maxwell said January – which was usually quieter in terms of the number of clients needing support – had been the busiest in the service’s six-year history.

“We saw a 30 per cent increase just over January, so that doesn’t look good for coming months,” he said.

Maxwell said the by-name list model was a good way to maximise resources and get accurate data on homelessness to improve advocacy.

Getting correct and current data about clients required a structure like the by-name list model because of privacy laws.

“It’s something I’ve been pushing for,” he said.

A report on the model of homelessness will be prepared by April.

Aged care home closing

A BONBEACH aged care home is set to close its doors, impacting nearly 50 elderly residents.

Calvary Bonbeach will permanently close on 31 May. Residents and their families were informed of the closure on 13 February.

49 residents will be moved to other Calvary facilities, or to other homes if needed.

In a media release, Calvary said the Bonbeach home was “unable to meet the expectations of contemporary age care services into the future as it predominantly features shared bedrooms and bathrooms facilities.

“Calvary has decided to close the

home as the extensive redesign and building works needed to modernise the facilities cannot be completed while residents and staff remain. Calvary recognises moving home and workplace is disruptive for our residents and staff, but we believe it offers better long-term outcomes compared with any temporary relocation.

“Calvary will support the transition of all 49 residents to homes with better amenities across the Calvary network, or to another aged care provider if residents choose. Tailored relocation plans to meet individual needs and preferences have been developed and where possible, to ensure a continuity of care, Calvary Bonbeach staff will be offered redeployment across the same mix of Calvary’s 30 other Victorian homes as relocated residents.”

Calvary acting regional chief executive for Victoria, Bryan McLoughlin, said that closing the facility was “a very difficult decision.”

“At Calvary we are committed to our mission to serve our communities through modern and high quality care services, and we will be supporting our Bonbeach residents and staff to ensure a smooth transition to a new home offering more suitable and contemporary amenities,” he said.

The site will be sold once residents are moved elsewhere.

Residents needing priority care will be offered a move to a new expanded home at Calvary George Vowell in Mount Eliza.

Intersection safety changes considered

CHANGES to the intersections of Nepean Highway, Station Street, and McLeod Road in Carrum are being considered.

The level crossing at Station Street in Carrum was removed in February 2020. At the same time the intersection of Station Street and McLeod Road changed from a t-intersection to a multi-leg cross intersection. In November 2020 a 75-year-old woman was killed in a car crash at the intersection of Station Street and McLeod Road.

A survey on potential changes to the intersection closed last week. The VicRoads website reads that responses “will help inform planning for future safety improvements at the intersection.”

“Please note this is an investigative study at this stage and funding for po-

tential improvements would be considered in future funding programs,” VicRoads said.

Is Frankston having its Geelong moment?

Frankston is in the middle of a ‘glow up’.

Visitors are filling our streets, cranes are dotting our skyline, and key streets have undergone some serious facelifts.

The Victorian Government has identified Frankston as a Metropolitan Activity Centre, and in response the local council has embraced Frankston becoming the ‘capital of the south east’.

The Frankston Metropolitan Activity Centre Plan (FMAC) is the document underpinning bold ambitions for sustainable development, private and public investment, diverse housing options, and destination shopping and dining promenades.

Like Geelong, Frankston has an enviable waterfront precinct which has been successfully activated over the past decade and now hosts major annual events, concerts and festivals.

Alongside the waterfront, Kananook Creek winds its way past Nepean Highway and meets the pristine sands and waters of a beach which is regularly voted Melbourne’s best. With the greatest respect to other key activity centres in Metropolitan Melbourne, none of them have got what Frankston does.

And this is changing the way we want to work.

Over in Geelong, big four firm KPMG opened an office in

the city’s centre. This move acknowledges that the quality of staff they are hoping to attract now expect a greater emphasis on work-life balance and short commutes to work.

This lifestyle-leading model is appealing to many prospective employees, and like Geelong, Frankston is well placed to emulate this attractive working environment.

The last three decades have been transformative for Geelong – headlined by the Pyramid Building Society collapse and closure of the Ford factory. Significant forces like these meant that local government and industry had to organise itself and collectively speak up for their city.

Local community leaders like Frank Costa helped set up the Committee for Geelong, in an effort to encourage investment from all levels of Government and embrace their status as Victoria’s second city.

Fast forward to today, and Geelong boasts major employers like the TAC, National Disability Insurance Agency, and WorkSafe. It’s also getting its more than fair share from Government.

The Committee for Frankston & Mornington Peninsula found $22,823 is spent on infrastructure per person in City of Greater Geelong – a

whopping $20,506 more than a resident on the Peninsula!

Back in Geelong, an influx of Melburnians has gentrified many of its surrounding suburbs, bringing with it laneway eating and dining, a brand new Arts Centre, and a planned Convention and Exhibition Centre set to open in 2026.

Of course, changes as significant as these have brought challenges to housing stock, rental affordability, and infrastructure problems.

Even the most casual observer couldn’t help but make comparisons to two cities both just under an hour from Melbourne’s CBD – which is why it’s crucial we look to address

what our region looks like in twenty year’s time and start tackling some of those growing pains right now.

The politics too is similar, which is often as crucial as any other factor in the success of a region.

The federal electorate of Dunkley and state electorate of Frankston are crucial in either side of politics forming government. Essentially, you can’t govern in Victoria without the people of Frankston.

And this has been crucial in the city’s more recent success. Investments in redeveloping the Frankston Hospital, Frankston train station, level crossing removals, Chisholm TAFE upgrades and more car parking for commuters

are just some of the major projects delivered by successive governments since 2014.

However, Government shouldn’t take Frankston for granted. This city is on the precipice of something special and the next few decades will be transformative for the way we live, work and play on the Peninsula. Frankston is a good fifteen years behind Geelong. Can we learn from the lessons across the bay and embrace the changing face of Frankston CBD? Only time will tell.

Josh Sinclair is the CEO of Committee for Frankston & Mornington Peninsula www.cfmp.org.au

FRIDAY SWAN SONG

SBS WORLD MOVIES, 9.30pm

THURSDAY GRAND DESIGNS NEW ZEALAND

ABC TV, 8.30pm

In this lofty home building series, returning with its eighth Kiwi season, you can count on budget issues denting homeowners’ vision and spirit. But in this new instalment, it’s the dreaded pandemic that brings an extra veneer of stress and uncertainty. Presenter Tom Webster (pictured) is intrigued upon meeting busy Perth couple Mark and Liz, who have grand plans to build their own bach, otherwise known as a humble Kiwi beach house on a steep patch of land overlooking Ligar Bay.

German Udo Kier (pictured) shines bright like a diamond in his transfixing turn as a retired hairdresser facing up to his past. Kier is Pat Pitsenbarger, who is reluctantly lured out of his nursing home to style a former client for her upcoming funeral in this tender and wistful dramedy, Also starring the zesty wit of The White Lotus’ Jennifer Coolidge, as well as Ugly Betty’s Michael Urie, life’s themes abound in this eccentric journey.

Simple, done well. Fresh & nourishing home-cooked foods. Delicious seasonal meals and all-day breakfast options

FRIDAY

WHERE THE CRAWDADS SING

SEVEN, 8.30pm

Normal People’s Daisy Edgar Jones (pictured above) is “marsh girl” Kya. Abused then abandoned in swampland, Kya grows up alone and ostracised by her small North Carolina town, only to end up as a murder suspect after she emerges from her solitary existence to try and find some human connection. Produced by Reese Witherspoon, it’s a choppy adaptation that’s perhaps too slick to do the haunting tale justice.

SATURDAY

RENOVATE OR REBUILD

NINE, 3.30pm

Do you lay awake at night wondering what to do with your dilapidated home? This series, returning for a second season, is just what the builder ordered. Featuring former contestants from The Block, as well as affable host and interior designer James Treble (pictured), the words “knockdown” and “renovators’ delight” are excitedly hammered about as two separate teams try to convince homeowners to deviate one way or another. The exciting part is seeing the array of different designs and concepts to be chosen from, which all have an emphasis on sustainability. Featuring abodes from around the country.

Choose a 'local champion' on Saturday - PM

Voting for Jodie Belyea and Labor on Saturday means choosing a local champion who can deliver for you in Government.

When I joined Jodie for her candidate launch, I wrote in the Frankston Times that I knew Jodie would be a strong member for Dunkley.

I’ve been able to spend some time with Jodie on the campaign. We’ve visited the Frankston Bowling Club, Karringal Football Netball Club Pavilion, the Frankston Hospital and the Urgent Care Clinic on Beech Street.

We opened the Peta Murphy Breast Imaging Suite and announced funding for the National Register for Metastatic Cancers.

Each time I’ve visited it’s been clear to me that in Jodie will always speak up for her community and will help drive the decisions that make a positive difference for you and your family, just like the late Peta Murphy did.

Jodie is a Frankston mum with a mortgage and a son at high school.

She’s not a career politician, she’s running because she cares about serving her community and helping people.

That’s what our Labor Government is all about and that’s why easing cost of living pressures is our number one priority.

We’ve opened the new Medicare Urgent Care Clinic in Frankston, cut the cost of medicines, funded 19 new GPs and tripled support for bulkbilling.

We’ve made child care cheaper for families and helped households and small business with their energy bills.

We’ve backed fee-free TAFE to make sure people can get the skills they need for a job they want.

Because of our policies hardworking Australians are earning more with real wages increasing and I want you to keep more of what you earn too.

That’s why we are delivering a tax cut for every taxpayer, including over 70,000 taxpayers here in Dunkley.

Labor’s tax cuts are aimed squarely at low and middle income Australians under pressure, from retail workers and cleaners at Bayside Centre, to teachers at Seaford Primary and Frankston High, to the workers who delivered the Hall Road upgrade in Carrum Downs.

Peter Dutton and the Liberals have nothing positive to offer – no cost of living plan, just negativity, fear campaigns and saying no to everything.

This by-election is an opportunity for the people of Dunkley to continue to have a strong local voice in Government who can make a real difference.

Because a local MP who is in government is best placed to deliver for the local community.

Our Government is working for Australia and if you vote for Jodie Belyea, she’ll work hard for you every day.

Control cats

The suburbs of Melbourne that have none of the many species of birds once common in Blairgowrie have arrived on the Mornington Peninsula. Where have they gone? Killed by cats (Dumping a problem for cats and wildlife, The News 6/2/24).

There is a golf course estate in a neighbouring municipality where cats are banned. It has become a haven for many species of birds, and it is not unusual to see bandicoots and other animals in broad daylight. Cats hunt day and night and kill for food or to satisfy an instinct.

The peninsula is on the verge of an ecological disaster as the cat problem is out of control.

A domestic or a feral cat may kill 200 birds or small animals a year. At a time when the peninsula’s ecology is under threat the shire has suspended its cat trapping program because it can no longer vaccinate feral cats taken to its animal shelter because of a vaccine shortage. This decision is partly based on information supplied by the RSPCA that appears to show it wastes money on neutering and vaccinating feral animals despite Department of Agriculture advice that they may be euthanised.

Our shire needs to rethink its cat policy, feral and domestic. I walk at daybreak and see more

cats on the streets than ever and most of the birds I see are introduced pests (Indian mynahs, doves. and starlings) that take over nesting spaces from smaller native birds. Fortunately, we still have healthy population of magpies and some parrots and Kookaburras.

As a former employee of a shire pest control contractor, I have observed the havoc created by the uncontrolled cat population and the shire needs to lift its game before we lose all our beautiful small birds and wildlife.

End animal cruelty

As Leader for RSPCA Victoria’s south-east region inspectorate, my team of six Inspectors and I share 85 years of experience investigating reports of animal cruelty.

The inspectors and I are often on the road around Melbourne’s inner-east, down to the Mornington Peninsula, and all of Gippsland to the New South Wales border.

Out on the road, we’re seeing how the costof-living crisis is impacting pet owners and their ability to provide basic care for their pets, such as enough food, and access to weather proof housing.

We’re also seeing people unable to provide crucial veterinary care and basic preventative medicines like flea and worming treatments.

We’re extremely grateful to the community for their ongoing vigilance reporting animal cruelty.

Over the past six months, we received 1288 reports and tip-offs about animal cruelty in the south-east and 269 animals were seized or surrendered into our care.

It’s estimated caring for these animals costs RSPCA Victoria at least $460,000.

Last financial year 508 animals came into our care and, sadly, it seems we’re likely to repeat this total again by the end of June.

As we enter what is historically the busiest time of year, we urge everyone in the south-east to remain vigilant for animal cruelty in our area and to report it to RSPCA Victoria by calling 9224 2222 or online at rspcavic.org/crueltyreport.

The community support we see every day keeps us going and makes each day just a little bit better.

RSPCA Inspectors are here to help and thankfully, many of the animals we encounter every day have loving owners who want to do the best they can for their pets.

Together, let’s end animal cruelty.

RSPCA inspectorate team leader (south-east region)

History repeats

As the captain of the First Eleven back in 2005/06, I welcome and applaud the decision to return to that model of structure for the upcoming Mornington Peninsula Shire Council elections in October (Wards new names, new boundaries, The News 21/2/24).

Hopefully, the state government stands firm in its commitment to promote this structure for local government in Victoria in the future.

Local government should be free from political influence and the councillors elected to represent their community within their respective wards should “come to the table”, primarily with the knowledge of and interest in “good outcomes for the community they represent” and not be distracted by matters that they can’t have any positive influence over.

Having said that, the councillors who served in that First Eleven proudly wore a sustainability badge which reflected three aspects of sustainability. Blue represented social, green the environment and maroon economic surrounding, yellow coming together as the community across the diverse, unique Mornington Peninsula Shire.

I proudly treasure the cricket bat I was presented with at the end of my mayoral term signed by Crs David Gibb, Bill Goodrem, Dave Gregan, David Jarman, Aldona Martin, Susan Beveridge, Tim Rodgers, Anne Smith, Reade Smith , Bev Colomb and CEO Dr Michael Kennedy. Sadly, Cr Ian Johnston died during that year.

Ceasefire in Gaza

The conflicts in Israel, Gaza and the West Bank have killed over 30,000 people including 12,000 children, wounded over 80,000 and displaced over 1.5 million people in just the past four months.

The bombardment and restrictions on Palestinians by the Israeli government as a means to defend itself and capture Hamas terrorists has been excessive and in violation of international laws.

I was surprised to hear that our MP for Flinders Zoe McKenzie and other politicians had flown to Israel and the West Bank before Christmas.

I am not sure what positive outcomes were achieved by their visit - these tours of Israel could be used to influence politicians and journalists back in Australia.

Our elected representatives, including the Prime Minister Anthony Albanese, Opposition Leader Peter Dutton and Zoe McKenzie MP, must make a united stand in federal parliament to demand an immediate and enduring ceasefire and request increased access to humanitarian aid to avoid a genocide in Gaza.

If the Israeli government and Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu continue to ignore international calls for an immediate ceasefire, Australia must take action to cease financial and military assistance to Israel.

The 1948 Genocide Convention states “… genocide, whether committed in time of peace or in time of war, is a crime under international law which [state parties] undertake to prevent and to punish”. It also outlines that “complicity in genocide” is a punishable act.

Change voting habit

I truly hope that we finally demonstrate some self-respect as a voting public and be the electorate which leads the way in demanding a better standard of political leadership. If a friend was in a disrespectful relationship you’d be telling them to move on. We keep retaining political leadership that treats us with disdain, except when there’s an election.

Our public coffers are treated as personal expense accounts, limitless when supporting their personal or political ideals yet try to get funds for people who actually need it and the bank is dry.

There’s a saying that you get what you accept, and if we keep voting for incompetent political leadership that’s what we get.

We must tell all politicians to improve their standards by putting Labor low, if not last, in the Dunkley by-election. And the Liberals are not much better, deserting their traditional base trying to be popularist and losing their way all over Australia. Put them near the bottom as well.

There are decent contenders from minor parties and, if you vote them first, it won’t change the world immediately, but it will send a wakeup call - do a top job or you are gone.

If you are a traditional Labor voter, the Democratic Labor Party has your back better than Labor (pity they aren’t on the ticket). The rebranded Libertarian Party is a better option than the Liberals, and there are outstanding options among Independents and other minor parties. Stop ticking the Labor or Lib box out of habit.

If we return Labor, given their woeful state and federal performances, we simply say “go on, treat us like fools, no worries, with no selfrespect we’ll just vote for you again”. Or we can draw a line in the sand and change things.

Opinions are not facts

There is an old saying, ”you are welcome to your own opinion, but not your own facts”. Australia’s net debt is only forecast to be $491 billion, a vast improvement on the near $1 trillion that the previous coalition government left behind, thus substantially reducing the debt burden left to our grandchildren (Record of debt, Letters 20/2/24).

The suggestion that the Liberals are lower taxing than Labor is patently wrong. Of the governments over the past 40 years the highest taxing governments (as a percentage of GDP) have always been the Coalition not Labor.

Despite promising surpluses every year, the Coalition delivered nine deficits in a row, whereas the current government has delivered one surplus and likely will deliver a second.

Inflation is now lower than it was under the

Coalition and wages have actually risen as opposed to being deliberately suppressed as was the Coalition’s stated policy.

Fairer tax cuts are being delivered, easing the cost of living burden. The retiree tax was largely a fiction of the Liberal Party. No retiree tax was proposed or even considered at the last election, nor was the Coalition favourite of the dreaded death tax, again another Coalition fiction.

Other issues are state issues and crime rates are falling, not rising. As an ex-teacher, the shortage has been known for about a decade and what exactly did the Coalition do about that in its nine years of government? That’s right, nothing, just kicked it down the road for Labor to deal with. Dr Ross Hudson, Mount Martha

A warmer Earth

Some American academics, and others, set out to prove the Earth’s climate over the past 7000 years and beyond by taking known data samples and “reconstructing” what the climate was.

They fed selected and grossly inadequate data into their computers which had no further knowledge of the infinite complexities and variables involved in planetary climate and got their desired result: there is an “inference” that the climate has been stable, changing by only 0.01 per cent a century. What rubbish to claim this as fact and that now the climate is changing too fast and causing species extinction (Change is needed, Letters 20/2/24).

It is in historical records that just 1000 years ago the Earth was warmer; farming settlements were established in coastal Greenland, surviving for over 300 years until a 500-year planetary cold snap commenced and the settlements got frozen out and abandoned. The river Thames in London used to freeze over solid, until about 1850 when the planet started to warm up again.

I argue that the normal planetary temperature is a variable ranging over maybe five degrees. The sun provides the Earth’s climate.

Species extinction is more likely because of human activity and pollution rather than climate change. The Tasmanian tiger is a good example. Greenhouse farmers often add carbon dioxide gas, not to make the hothouse hotter, but to nourish the plants and increase yields.

All green life, plants and algae, love CO2. Can’t get enough of it. Without this rare, heavier than air gas there would be no plant life and no humans. Brian A Mitchelson, Mornington

Ute powered up

The US has had fuel efficiency standards since the 1970s. Of the developed countries, only Australia and Russia don’t have them. Nevertheless, the government’s decision to introduce them has created concern that vehicles will cost more and that there are no real alternatives to diesel-powered trucks and tractors. But the standards only apply to new, light vehicles, not trucks and tractors.

Car dealers may still sell a mix of internal combustion vehicles and electric and hybrid vehicles, as now. What’s changed is that dealers must meet a fleet emissions target encouraging them to buy and sell more low emissions vehicles. It’s hard to argue against lower CO2 emissions and cleaner air.

When Australians realise that the towing capacity of the Ford F150 Lightning electric ute at 4.5t exceeds that of Australia’s most popular car, the Ford Ranger ute at 3.9t, they will want one. Not only are they cheaper to run and maintain, but power tools and fridges can be plugged into them too.

State and federal governments need to provide incentives to increase the availability and reduce the cost of these amazing vehicles in Australia.

Fatal Motor Accident at Seaford – Little Boy Killed

ON Monday evening; while driving along the Point Nepean Road, near Martin’s Road, Seaford, Mr. Alexander Waddell Fergusson, draper, of Main Street, Mordialloc, saw some children in the road.

He sounded his horn, and the children moved to the side of the road.

One poor little fellow, however, who appeared to get confused, ran back again, and as a result was struck by the car driven by Mr. Fergusson, and run over.

He was at once conveyed to Dr. Maxwell’s surgery, at Frankston, where upon arrival life was found to be extinct.

The little boy, who proved to be Alexander Douglas Aitchison, aged 4½ years, is a son of Dr. R. Douglas Aitchison, of 1 Victoria Avenue, Albert Park.

An inquest was held at the Frankston Police Station, on Tuesday, February 26, before Mr. Philip Wheeler, J.P.

Jessie M. Gennisken, married woman, residing at Martin’s Road, Seaford, said:

I remember the 25th of February, 1924. At about 7.15pm I was in the Point Nepean Road, Seaford, in company of my son John, aged 11 years, and Alexander Douglas Aitchison, aged 4 years and 6 months.

My son, John, had a little cart, and the deceased was sitting in it. I heard a motor car coming behind us. At that time the deceased boy sprung out of the cart, and ran from one side of the road to the other.

The car was travelling towards Sea-

ford. I cannot remember if the driver sounded the horn or not.

When the car got opposite the deceased boy was standing clear of the road, and appeared to be safe, at this time. The deceased could have run in front of the car without me seeing him, as when the car approached us he was hidden from my view by the motor car.

The next thing I saw was the deceased lying between the rear wheels of the car. At this time the car had dragged the boy some distance.

The driver then stopped and had the boy conveyed to Dr. Maxwell’s surgery, Frankston.

The last time I saw the deceased he was in his usual good health and spirits.

Jack McGennisken, a schoolboy, aged 11 years, corroborated his mother’s evidence, with the exception that he heard the horn sounded.

At the time of the accident the car was travelling at 15 miles an hour.

Alexander Waddell Fergusson said: I am a draper, residing in Main Street, Mordialloc. I remember the 25th February. At about 7.15pm I was driving my motor car along the Point Nepean, Road, Seaford, and when near the intersection of that road and Martin’s Road, I noticed a lady and 2 boys in the centre of the road, going in the same direction as I was.

When approaching them I slowed down, and sounded my horn.

At this time the lady and the bigger boy crossed to the right-hand side of the road, and the smaller boy to the left-hand side.

Just as I was opposite the deceased he attempted to cross the road in front

of my car, to where the lady and bigger boy were standing. He was struck by the offside mudguard of my car, and knocked down, and fell under the car.

I at once pulled up, and went to the assistance of the lad, and picked him up and had him conveyed at once to Dr. Maxwell’s surgery, at Frankston, where he was examined by Dr. Maxwell.

At the time of the accident I was travelling at the rate of about 15 miles an hour. At that time the only other vehicle on the road was a motor lorry, which was some distance behind, travelling in the same direction, the driver of which stopped and rendered assistance.

Dr. Charles Maxwell, duly qualified medical practitioner, residing at Frankston, said:

On the evening of the 25th of February, at about 7.30pm, I was called to the surgery, and there saw the body of the child Alexander Douglas Aitchison in the arms of Alexander Waddell Fergusson. The child was dead. There were very severe injuries to the head. Death would probably occur in a few minutes, owing to the severe nature of the injuries to the head and shock and neuro-paralysis.

After hearing the evidence the Coroner found that the deceased died from injuries caused by being struck by a motor car, and that death was due to misadventure. No blame was attached to the driver of the car.

ON Sunday last the public were again subjected to great inconvenience by the failure of the electric light.

The churches were amongst those

who suffered most. At St. Paul’s Church, where they depend solely upon the electric light, they had to have recourse to candles.

However, at the Methodist Church, they were a little better circumstanced, having gas to fall back on.

On this occasion, however, the fault was not local, as the current had been shut off from 7am until 8.10pm, from some cause, in Melbourne.

We understand that Dandenong and other towns were similarly circumstanced.

***

WE understand that Mr. Ben Baxter, who was playing in the test match on Wednesday last, should really not have been playing that day, having received an injury to one of his legs, the sinews of which had been badly strained, on the previous Saturday.

From personal experience we know this to be a most painful injury, and trust that it will soon be quite all right again. ***

Letter to the Editor

The Moorooduc Quarry - a mountain of stone badly managed

Sir,

This quarry has had a run of about four years, and has resulted in a loss of £16,000.

The engine has done its part, and it is now getting worn out. It earned nothing for repairs. The jaws of the crusher are getting worn, and so are the jaws of the ratepayers, asking when will the profit come.

The elevator takes another turn, and the wind blows through the screen. That is what has happened to one of the best situated quarries in Victoria.

From the opening of that quarry, it should have shown no loss. The machinery was in good working order. All along the line it has been badly managed, and extra, badly managed.

If such was not the case, it could not have shown a loss of £16,000.

I have a lifetime’s experience to guide me, therefore I feel safe when I say, that the same quarry should not be called a white elephant, but under good management, a gold mine.

One of the best investments ever the Council had. The stone has a sure sale, and no prospecting to find it.

Yet all the while the ratepayers are putting their hands deeply into their pockets to find a few more pounds to carry it along.

I fearlessly say to them, there is a profit of £10 per day to be got after certain alterations, and £15 per day by the end of six to eight months.

Now, I consider the present plant would be earning all it could but by gravitation, a large receiving bin, a loop line, and large orders for stone, £25 to £50 per day is there.

All stone to be sold at 7/- per yard, on the railway trucks, at Moorooduc quarry siding. I predicted from the start of that quarry it would be a failure, and to date it has proved it.

With the same experience behind it can predict it to be turned from a white elephant to a profitable quarry, and the ratepayers will not be asked more of it, as they are today.

I am, etc.,

GEO. NELSON.

Baxter, February 25.

JACK PEACOCK

Emil Madsen Reserve hosted the Jack Peacock Cup finals. In the morning, Balnarring took on Boneo in the first semi-final and Heatherhill played Langwarrin in the second.

Balnarring scored 8/137 from their 20 overs. They had to bowl well to claim to win, but managed to get the job done.

Boneo could only score 8/116 from their 20 overs. Balnarring booked their spot in the Grand Final that afternoon with a 21-run win.

In the other semi-final, Heatherhill chased down Langwarrin’s total of 102 with six wickets to spare and an over left to play.

Heatherhill batter Kristian Miller hit 40 runs to help get his side over the line. Jake Theobald and Levi Mcloughlin-Dore combined for a good partnership to secure the Grand Final spot.

The final went down to the wire. Heatherhill defeated Balnarring by just one run to take home the trophy.

Seven locals remain in Oz Cup

SOCCER

SEVEN out of 14 local clubs remain in the 2024 Australia Cup after last weekend’s second preliminary round.

The early stages of the prestigious national competition are regionalised along federation jurisdictions with Victoria using the Dockerty Cup name for its knockout rounds until ALeague clubs enter the fray.

Mornington, Peninsula Strikers and Skye United enter the knockout tournament at the next stage joining the survivors from round two – Frankston Pines, Chelsea and Mount Eliza. Langwarrin enters the Cup at the fourth round stage.

In last weekend’s Cup action Pines came back from a two-goal deficit to overhaul Diamond Valley 3-2 thanks to an Ardi Ahmeti hat-trick, teenager Tully Baker scored the winner in Mount Eliza’s 3-2 victory over Kings Domain while Chelsea had a comfortable 3-1 win over Heidelberg Eagles. Here are last weekend’s Dockerty Cup results:

Chelsea 3 (James Stinson, Luke D’Alessandro, Nathan Boccari) Heidelberg Eagles 1; Somerville Eagles 3 (Josh Simmons, Conor Mcfall, Marcus Anastasiou) Waverley Wanderers 6; Baxter 1 (Sava Baledrokadroka) Point Cook 4; Diamond Valley 2 Frankston Pines 3 (Ardi Ahmeti 3); Kings Domain 2 Mount Eliza 3 (Callum Drysdale, Nickel Chand, Tully Baker).

Here is the draw for round 3 of the Dockerty Cup:

Lalor Utd v Peninsula Strikers, Chelsea v Mount Eliza, Skye Utd v Fawkner/Templestowe Wolves, Mazenod v Mornington, FC Clifton Hill v Frankston Pines.

These ties must be played between Thursday 7 March and Tuesday 12 March and clubs were arranging venues, dates and kick-off times as we went to press.

In VPL1 news Langwarrin’s 2-1 win over North Geelong at Lawton Park on Saturday evening ensured that the home side stays in the top four and the visitors remain anchored to the foot of the table.

Brad Blumenthal couldn’t convert early chances before a downward Luke Adams header from a corner in the 21st minute was knocked in by Archie Macphee from point-blank range.

Langy’s lead lasted just 11 minutes.

North Geelong keeper Vinith Murugamoorthy launched a long ball downfield to Sergio Escudero who

was in a one-on-one with Adams.

Escudero out-positioned the defender and neatly lobbed the ball over Langy keeper James Burgess who was in no man’s land and suddenly it was 1-1.

Ten minutes into the second half Blumenthal was tripped inside the area and Youngs converted from the spot.

But North Geelong pressed hard for an equaliser and in the 95th minute Langy’s six-yard box resembled a pinball machine.

However Langwarrin prevailed to earn a seventh point from its first three fixtures.

It was an important result as the local club now starts a run of six away games in a row and will confront Caroline Springs George Cross, Melbourne City, Werribee City, Brunswick City, Kingston City and Bulleen.

It returns to Lawton Park on Saturday 20 April for its round 10 clash with Melbourne Victory.

Brothers Bareth and Rahul Suresh will miss the Brunswick City fixture after being called up by the Sri Lankan national team for a Four Nations Tournament in Colombo at the end of March.

In State 1 news there has been a coaching change at Mornington.

Former Beaumaris coach Christian Liberona is the new reserves coach at

Dallas Brooks Park.

He takes over from Craig Davidson and assistant Mitch Ball.

“We felt a change was needed to move the club forward,” Mornington president Matt Cameron said.

“Craig and Mitch both leave with our best wishes for their future.”

In State 3 news former Mount Eliza player-coach Bryce Ruthven has turned his back on Frankston Pines and signed with State 3 rival Heatherton United.

“I was training with both Pines and Heatherton since November and played in the Wallace Cup with Pines and in another friendly but decided to sign with Heatherton instead.

“I definitely think Heatherton has a squad that will challenge for promotion, plus the way the club runs is super professional.”

In State 5 following the return to action of scoring legend Dave Greening at Rosebud comes news that he has been joined on the training track by ex-partner in crime Mark Pagliarulo.

That gives Rosebud the possibility of fielding the oldest three-pronged attack on the peninsula featuring 42-year-old Greening, 39-year-old Pagliarulo and the “baby” of the bunch in 31-year-old Nathan Yule.

A fan from a rival club cheekily suggested the shire council consider changing the name of Rosebud’s home ground from Olympic Park to

Jurassic Park.

Greening and “Pags” were integral to Somerville Eagles’ 2019 championship success and the latter claims that Rosebud fans will see an improved version of the veteran Scottish striker.

“I’ve dropped 10 kilograms since I hit the gym and I’ve been running and I’ve stopped drinking,” he said.

“It’s funny that it’s taken me till the end of my career to look after my body and look after myself both mentally and physically.

“I genuinely feel the best I’ve felt since I moved here eight years ago and I’ve finally realised I can’t just drink and party in the sun.

“I’ve never felt this excited to get playing in years.” In Football Victoria news its competitions department has presented a submission to the board regarding the impact on Victoria’s National Premier League set-up of a planned second-tier national competition.

At this stage the new national competition is set to kick-off next year involving three Victorian clubs – South Melbourne, Avondale and Preston Lions.

Competitions is recommending that all three retain their NPL status but are relegated to VPL2, the third level of club competition after NPL and VPL1.

That means that three teams are

likely to be promoted from VPL1 to NPL at the end of the current season.

That opens up the possibility of Langwarrin becoming only the second club from the peninsula to play at the highest level of competition in the state.

Here are the results of some friendlies involving local clubs:

Baxter 4 (Tom Hawkins, Izaak Barr, Aaran Currie, Sava Baledrokadroka) Mount Martha 1 (Dan Bancroft); Mornington 4 (Rhys Craigie 2, Carlos Abboud, Sam Orritt) Knox City 0; Peninsula Strikers 0 Clifton Hill 0; Ringwood City 4 Skye Utd 4 (Marcus Collier, Keita Ioka, triallist, George Jeffs); Seaford Utd 2 (Ayuen Leuth, Wisey Barakzoi) Mentone 1 (Chris Gibson); Aspendale 4 (Ryan Mravljak 2, Jared Kilmartin, Pablo Borboa) Melbourne Uni 2.
