New laws police councils Neil Walker neil@baysidenews.com.au COUNCILLORS and mayors who seriously misbehave could be suspended for up to a year under new provisions in an amended Local Government Act introduced by the state government. Victorian Local Government Minister Marlene Kairouz introduced a bill into Parliament last Wednesday (23 May) to replace the Local Government Act 1989 in a move the Labor state government says “will modernise” councils across the state. “Clearly defining” sexual harassment has been included in a revised councillors’ code of conduct included in the new Local Government Act. The inclusion of the clause follows a high-profile investigation of former Melbourne lord mayor Robert Doyle amid complaints from female councillors about his conduct. “We are bringing this Act into the 21st century – helping make councils more accountable and focused on the needs of their communities,” Ms Kairouz said. “Mayors and councillors who behave badly will be gone for a year – the days of them acting with impunity are over.” The Local Government Minister will also have “the power to suspend

UP TO

individual councillors who pose a significant threat to the governance of a council for up to a year”. Councils will be required under the new Act to develop four-year budgets and the mayor of the day will provide an annual update on the budget plan to ratepayers each year. “We want councils focused on the long-term and these changes will help them do exactly that,” Ms Kairouz said. Frankston mayor Cr Colin Hampton said council “has been briefed on the Act and is generally supportive”. “This new Bill has been reviewed to meet current requirements and is contemporary and more logically structured,” Cr Hampton said. The updated Local Government Act for Victorian councils comes after three years of community consultation. The Local Government Minister sent a municipal monitor to Frankston Council in December last year for 18 months in the wake of “governance concerns” reported by then-mayor Cr Brian Cunial and council CEO Dennis Hovenden to the Local Government Investigations and Compliance Inspectorate. The new Act is unrelated to the monitor’s stay at Frankston.

Hospital’s health Neil Walker neil@baysidenews.com.au MAJOR private healthcare provider Healthscope has flagged financial performance problems at Frankston Private Hospital while closing its private hospitals in Geelong and Cotham. Healthscope lodged a statement with the Australian Securities Exchange (ASX) on 22 May announcing the closure of Geelong Private Hospital and Cotham Private Hospital after a review of its “portfolio of 45 hospitals” found the two hospitals are “not viable”. The statement from Healthscope CEO Gordon Ballantyne also advised the market that “an impairment relating to Frankston Private Hospital” is also being recorded. Healthscope’s 2018 financial results will include “a non-operating impairment charge” of about $68 million, “relating to asset writedowns and an onerous lease provision associated with Frankston Private Hospital”. “The performance of Frankston Private Hospital has been well below expectations with occupancy rates well below the business plan,” Healthscope stated. “Healthscope has explored a range of options to improve the performance of Frankston Private Hospital, including repurposing part of the site. None of these options are likely to deliver the improved financial performance required to support the lease obligations, which were en-

tered into in FY14.” Frankston Private Hospital was officially opened in March last year by federal Flinders Liberal MP Greg Hunt, now federal Health Minister, after Healthscope acquired and amalgamated the Frankston Private Day Surgery and Peninsula Oncology Centre. Mr Hunt told Jon Faine on ABC Melbourne radio last Wednesday

(23 May) that “states are harvesting private patients for the public hospitals”. “It reduces the capacity of the private sector to support themselves and it also blows out waiting lists for public patients, often those with less income, in public hospitals,” the federal Health Minister said. Mr Hunt said he hopes Frankston Private Hospital can be successful.

Difference of opinion: Federal Dunkley Liberal MP Chris Crewther, left, wants his electorate boundaries to remain the same while Frankston mayor Colin Hampton, right, holds the opposite view. Picture: Gary Sissons

Boundary changes ‘best for basketball’ Neil Walker neil@baysidenews.com.au A SPORTING group criticised by federal Dunkley Liberal MP Chris Crewther in Parliament earlier this year wants electorate boundaries changed in a move that would put the seat within reach of a Labor Party win at the next federal election. The Frankston & District Basketball Association (FDBA) wrote to the Australian Electoral Commission (AEC) on 14 May to support a proposed Dunkley electorate boundaries redistribution that would see Dunkley lose Mornington and the north of Baxter in the south to the Flinders electorate but gain Sandhurst in the north from the Isaacs electorate. The FDBA’s stadium is located at councilowned land at Bardia Avenue in Seaford. Association president Gary Emery’s letter to the AEC said: “Frankston basketball’s catchment zone is linked to the municipal boundaries of Frankston City as well as capturing aspects of Mount Eliza. “Frankston basketball encourages that the redistribution is endorsed for the betterment of the sport of basketball in our region.” The submission to the AEC comes after Mr Crewther made several allegations under parliamentary privilege in Canberra about possible misconduct at the Frankston & District Basketball Association. The FDBA denies the allegations. Basketball Victoria is investigating the allegations.

Mr Crewther’s comments were made in Parliament the week after hosting last-ditch talks between the FDBA and Frankston Council in a failed bid to try to resurrect a $12.7 million upgrade of the stadium. Council and the association could not agree on lease terms for an upgraded stadium. Frankston mayor Cr Colin Hampton has also made a recent submission to the AEC supporting Dunkley boundary changes. “As councillor representing the North East Ward of Frankston — encompassing Carrum Downs, Sandhurst, Skye and Langwarrin — I look forward to the communities I represent finally being brought within the same federal electorate.” Cr Hampton, a Labor Party member, stated in his correspondence that “I make this submission in my capacity as a long-term councillor and resident, not as mayor. It reflects my personal views.” Neighbouring Mornington Peninsula Shire mayor Cr Bryan Payne made a 4 May submission opposing the AEC proposed changes (“Electorate change objections mount”, The Times 21/5/18). “In particular, we are concerned about the separation of Mount Eliza from the neighbouring township of Mornington,” Cr Payne stated in a letter to the AEC. “Mount Eliza benefits from being part of the same federal electorate as the township of Mornington, which is a major activity centre for Mount Eliza residents”.

STUDENTS from local schools visited Schnapper Point, Mornington, last week as part of their research into the resident dolphin population. It was all part of the Dolphin Research Institute’s ‘I sea, I care’ secondary school program which follows on from the successful primary school program for grades 5 and 6 pupils from 97 primary schools. The latest project involves 39 Year 10 students from six schools who are either part of an advanced science, technology, engineering and maths class or who are regarded as environmental leaders at their schools. The program is an alternative to work experience allowing students to meet others with similar interests. Most aspire to a career in STEM subjects, with many planning to study biology or work with wildlife. They attend six workshops over the school year, led by the marine research and education

mentors at DRI, and learn how to collect robust scientific data and present effective sciencebased presentations. Workshops include a dolphin swim from the tour boat Moonraker – so they can experience the marine environment first hand – and watching while contractors clean out a litter trap to gain an understanding of the impact of litter in our bays. Students also visit Monash University to take part in a laboratory biology session and hear from academic staff. The Dolphin Research Institute is looking for other schools to join in next year. Those interested can contact research director Dr Sue Mason via email at research@dolphinresearch. org.au or call 5979 7100.

A 22-YEAR-OLD Frankston man who allegedly stole jewellery, credit cards and personal property from retirement villages was arrested by police last Friday (18 May). The man was charged with five aggravated burglaries, one burglary and handling stolen goods. He was arrested at a Frankston address in possession of a stolen car with stolen registration plates and was also charged with the theft of a motor vehicle. The alleged burglar ransacked rooms at retirement villages including The Village Baxter and Long Island Retirement Village between 7 April and 9 May. Residents aged between 70-80 were asleep when burgled.

Summons were issued for 14 people to appear in court. “If you take drugs and drive, especially in the Frankston and Mornington Peninsula areas, you’re definitely out of your mind,” Somerville Highway Patrol acting sergeant Paul Holtzinger said. “Taking drugs and deciding to drive is a lead factor in causing road trauma. The dedicated team here at the Somerville Highway Patrol are ensuring that those drug drivers are intercepted, identified, drug tested and appropriately processed. “We conduct a large number of drug driving tests in this area, and we have a high strike rate of positive tests. These interceptions also result in the clearing of outstanding warrants and whereabouts, drug possession charges and gaining local intelligence.”

Creek ‘leading light’ remembered A LEADING light of the Kananook Creek Association has been honoured by volunteers at a tree planting ceremony on the banks of the creek in Seaford. KCA members and friends of Yvonne Sisson, known as “Vonne”, gathered early this month to plant a Black Sheoak tree in memory of the association stalwart who was passionate about passing the environmental benefits of the area on to the next generation. Vonne passed away in September last year at the age of 92. She and husband Allan Sisson were instrumental in reinvigorating the creek area in the wake of a devastating Seaford Reserve bushfire in the 1980s, including the building of walking tracks for public access. Mr Sisson, a former telco engineer, has been in ill health in recent years and KCA former president Robert Thurley hopes a Memorial Arboretum “in its initial form” can soon be built at the creek to recognise the selfless work Allan and wife Vonne contributed to the community over the years. He said the proposal was first raised with Frankston Council in the mid-1990s. “Yvonne Sisson was a legend of the Kananook Creek Association,” Mr Thurley said. “The two of them were amazing and we’d hope a learning centre about native plants can be built in their name.” Mr Thurley said the indigenous nursery and rangers system came

into being after the pair’s work at the creek. “The reserves from Carrum to the mouth of the creek in Frankston are one of the great assets in this area,” he said. “These things get forgotten …

but this was an amazing community effort and it was led by a man who had finished his career and basically started another one after his ‘real career’ was over.” Vonne is remembered by the KCA community “for her outstanding

work, wonderful sense of humour and generosity and kindness”. See kananookcreekassociation.org or call KCA president Paul Davies on 0413 404 525 for information about volunteering with the Kananook Creek Association. Neil Walker

Samaritans rally to pensioner’s plight Stephen Taylor steve@baysidenews.com.au GOOD Samaritans have rallied to help a pensioner who feared becoming homeless because of rising rents and limited housing stock. First, a reader offered him a suitable place to live rent-free and now the wheel has turned even further for Larry (surname withheld), who has been given a job by a former colleague doing what he does best: fixing sewing machines. Larry, who told his story to The Times in February (“Pensioner feels the brunt in house hunt” 5/2/18), says his life has now turned around. “I am so grateful to all,” he said

last week from the cottage on the 12-hectare property he helps look after in lieu of rent. “l was a victim of the 1989-90 depression during which I lost my investments, house and marriage. “At the age of 70 and after being retired for four years I looked for a long term permanent rental. With the previous four properties being sold from underneath me and fearing the same thing would happen again, I sought something more long term. “With the help of The Times I was put in contact with some very kind people who offered me a small selfcontained two bedroom apartment at the rear of the property in exchange for some minor farm work.” In the late 1980s, one of Larry’s

duties as Victorian/Tasmanian state manager of Singer Sewing Machine Company was to hire staff. This led to a young Mark Foster being put on as an apprentice sewing machine mechanic. “When Singer and I parted ways, Mark stayed on to complete his apprenticeship and he would call on my company until its demise. We had not seen each other since 198990,” Larry said. “Recently, and by sheer coincidence, we met up again. Mark has grown into a very humble and mature man with his own business [Sewfix Sewing Machine Repairs] in Seaford.” The two men rekindled their friendship and struck up an arrange-

ment: Larry – the former boss – now works part-time for Mark the former apprentice. “He allows me to not only come and go when I want but also tinker with old sewing machines,” Larry said. “This not only keeps my mind and body active but it also makes me feel useful once again. “Sometimes I go with him for a pick-up or delivery of machines. It is like swings and roundabouts: he now tells me to sweep floors and clean the toilets.” Hearing of Larry’s plight in February, the Council to Homeless Persons said the state government should finance social housing projects through stamp duty revenues. “The number of people being

evicted into homelessness has more than doubled over five years as rents rise,” CEO Jenny Smith said. Figures from the Australian Institute of Health and Welfare show that, last financial year, 43,751 people presented at Victorian homelessness services due to eviction, she said. The council says the increase from 17,930 five years ago is due to rising rents. Ms Smith said homelessness was also being driven by population growth, federal government housing taxation settings, and an absence of a national affordable housing plan. “Australia increasingly views housing as a commodity rather than the shelter we all need.”

Pier bill nears million mark Neil Walker neil@baysidenews.com.au REPAIRS to Seaford Pier will cost $900,000 so it can be fully reopened to the public. State Carrum Labor MP Sonya Kilkenny announced last Wednesday (23 May) that restoration works to replace damaged poles at the pier end will begin after a procurement process to contract out the works. “Seaford Pier is a local treasure that everyone should be able to enjoy – these works will allow local residents and visitors to enjoy the Pier for years to come,” Ms Kilkenny said in a statement. “We are in the early stages of planning and will continue to update the community as we progress through this process.” The funding announcement comes after The Times reported the end of Seaford Pier has been fenced off since late 2016 (“Pier end closed for over year”, The Times 13/3/18). It was closed due to safety concerns since pylons were damaged. Seaford resident Darren Gyss told The Times in March that he had been chasing Parks Victoria for more than a year for an answer on when the pier would be repaired and reopened. Ms Kilkenny’s latest announcement comes a month after a slick video by the MP on Facebook with the hashtag #onyasonya announcing “Terrific news — we’re going to fix Seaford pier”. Frankston North-West Ward coun-

cillor Kris Bolam noted there is still no timeline on when the Seaford pier will be reopened. “There has been a lot of ‘back-patting’ going on but little detail insofar actually getting the work done,” Cr Bolam said. “I speak for many Seaford residents when I say I’d love to see the pier fully revamped and reopened as soon as possible. “I am also concerned, like many residents are, about the gaps in the wooden sleepers along the entirety of the pier. Will these also be addressed?” Parks Victoria chief operating officer Simon Talbot said last week: “The funding announced by the Victorian government will reopen the pier, ensuring it remains accessible for the community.” The pier was built in the late 1920s and featured in a scene in the 1979 Mad Max movie starring Mel Gibson as the subsequently iconic road warrior embroiled in motorcycle gang feuds amid a dystopian future in Australia with sparse fuel sources. The cult classic that launched the career of director George Miller had a budget of about $400,000.

Bay baby boom A SURVEY of baby snapper in Port Phillip has recorded the highest count in 26 years, surpassing previous peaks in 2001 and 2004. Victorian Fisheries Authority boss Travis Dowling said the baby snapper boom would herald an “unprecedented influx” of small snapper in 2022 and bigger snapper – over 40cm – in 2025. “Our fisheries scientists have never seen baby snapper numbers as good as this in all the years they have been conducting the surveys,” Mr Dowling said. “Port Phillip is the most important spawning area for snapper in central and western Victoria so this is very good news for anglers who love catching this iconic fish. “Scientists undertake the annual surveys of baby snapper in late March and know to expect variation in spawning success depending on environmental conditions. “The survey measures the abundance of newborn snapper 3-10cm that have survived through the recent spring-summer spawning season. Anglers will notice exceptionally high numbers of undersize snapper over the next few years in Port Phillip Bay, Western Port, and central/western coastal waters. “It’s important that these undersize snapper are handled with care and released as soon as possible to maximise their survival, which is typically high. “The minimum legal size for snapper in Victoria is 28cm, and the daily per-person bag limit is 10, of which only three can be 40cm or over.” Mr Dowling said the snapper baby boom complemented excellent King George whiting numbers recently, too, which “bodes well for a thriving bay fishery in the years ahead”. “The state government’s Target One Million plan is also bringing an end to all commercial net fishing in Port Phillip Bay by 2022, which will mean more snapper and whiting for recreational anglers and their families,” he said.

Men’s shed a benefit for all MT ELIZA Men Shed members (or Shedders), above, have been building “buddy benches” for St Thomas Moore Primary School. “The new Grade 6 leaders are super excited about painting and decorating the buddy benches for an upcoming project,” the school’s visual arts teacher and sustainability leader Denise Ferguson said. The buddy benches will be placed in the school grounds so children who are feeling lonely can sit there, enabling other pupils to encourage them to join them in play or other activities. Mount Eliza Men’s Shed president Don Reeves said men’s sheds were beneficial to their members but are also an asset to the community. “This is evident in the multiple partnerships and community projects the shed has undertaken since opening in 2016,” he said. Carpentry projects have created more activities at Mt Eliza Neighbourhood House, including a boat-shaped sand pit in the

outdoor play area, along with benches for parents to sit and watch their children play. Some of the men built a raised veggie garden for the neighbourhood house where produce is grown for community lunches on Thursdays. “Men’s sheds are not only about woodwork but, of most significance, offer a place for social interaction where men can talk and joke around the shoulder to shoulder interaction, which is often what many retirees miss from the workplace,” Mr Reeves said. “Retirement is a significant transition in life that is associated with an increase in ill health and challenges with day to day functioning for which the men’s shed is a remedy.” Mt Eliza Men’s Shed opens Wednesday afternoons and Thursday mornings. An open day will be held 11am-2pm Saturday 2 June. The shed is at the rear of Mt Eliza Country Club, 32 Old Mornington Road, Mt Eliza. See mountelizamensshed.org online.

Freeway on way IT looks like it is full speed ahead for the construction of the Mordialloc Bypass linking the Mornington Peninsula Freeway in Aspendale Gardens to the Dingley Bypass in Dingley Village. Two contractors have been shortlisted to build the $375 million project. The Mordialloc Bypass, to be a freeway, will stretch nine kilometres and the state government says drivers will save up to 10 minutes each way between the Mornington Peninsula Freeway and Dingley Bypass. “We’re getting on with it - just weeks ago, we announced further funding to upgrade the Mordialloc Bypass to a freeway standard and now we’ve shortlisted contractors to tender for this exciting project,” Mordialloc Labor MP Tim Richardson said. CPB/Seymour Whyte Joint Venture and McConnell/Decmil Joint Venture are the contractors shortlisted for the roads infrastructure contract. There is some opposition to the four-lane freeway amid environmental concerns. The Residents Against the Mordialloc Freeway (RAMF) group is worried about the possible impact on the nearby environmentally sensitive RAMSAR-listed Edithvale-Seaford Wetlands. The group is also concerned about any impact on Braeside Park. “We want to show the politicians, there is growing concern against this Mordialloc Freeway. The cost to the Freeway being built, which will be redundant within 10 short years is too great and the environment is the huge loser here,” RAMF president Scott Fothergill said. “RAMF call on the state government to release the full feasibility and business case for the road, as this road and its benefits, despite sweeping statements from the government, we are certain just don’t add up under further scrutiny. “If they are so confident of the benefits, we again ask the government to provide us with the data to show the roads benefits in the longer term.” Building work is due to start on the Mordialloc Freeway bypass next year and will be open to traffic by the end of 2021.

The “Pick Your Project” fund totals $30 million and grants of between $20,000 and $200,000 will be up for grabs for ideas that can help community groups, organisations or schools. Victorians will be able to pitch ideas and people will vote for projects to be funded. Community workshops will be held across the state and applications can be made until Sunday 24 June. Winning projects will be announced in September. See pickmyproject.vic.gov.au or call 1800 797 818 for project guidelines.

the line’s electrification. He said the mayor should make a public apology to the council. “I regard the way the last minute officer report [was] brought before the council to be unusual, political in nature and the media release to be misleading,” Cr Gill told other councillors in an email on Friday morning. Cr Hugh Fraser said the shire’s negotiating position to make Hastings the end of the electrified line “has just been thrown away … to avoid any inconsistency between the federal Liberal government pumping money into a marginal seat supporting Baxter

electrification … and our council rationally and clearly supporting Hastings where the infrastructure can be accommodated". The latest news release from the shire makes no mention of political pressure or that its revised stance aligns itself more closely with the wishes of state and federal Liberal MPs. On Friday afternoon Cr Payne said the news release had been prepared before the council meeting and the change made to the wording of the officer’s recommendation. “I don’t do these media things – it

boundary changes proposed by the Australian Electoral Commission are adopted. Half of Baxter, including the railway station, is now within the seat of Dunkley, held for the Liberals by Mr Crewther. Pollsters say the boundary changes are likely to see Labor win the seat. The C4GF’s $450 million push is to electrify the Baxter line to Langwarrin, where it wants a new station and car parking for 1000 vehicles as well as building a station to service Frankston Hospital and Monash University. The shire’s initial “advocacy paper” made it clear that the shire was upset at being left out of discussions to electrify the railway line to a town within its municipal boundary. Mr Crewther’s meeting appears to recognise the shire – which includes Baxter within its municipal boundary - as a “stakeholder”. The easing of the shire’s demand for an electrified railway to Hastings makes it easier for the state Labor and federal Coalition governments to justify spending $3 million on a business case to electrify the line just to Baxter. However, the shire remains opposed to Baxter being used for the stabling and maintenance of trains. Moving these services out to Baxter will free up land at Frankston as demand on parking there would be reduced if peninsula commuters caught the train at Baxter.

MORNINGTON Peninsula Shire has watered down its demands to electrify the railway line between Frankston and Hastings. An “advocacy paper” released by the shire earlier this month stated that electrifying the railway to Baxter offered “minimal benefits” to peninsula residents and meant extending the town’s urban area into the green wedge. But councillors last week changed course, accepting Baxter as “phase one” of the railway line’s electrification and Hastings as “phase two”. In a late addition to the 22 May council meeting agenda, “team leader - peninsula wide” Rosa Zouzoulas submitted a report that identified two pieces of shire-owned vacant land that could be used for car parking if Baxter is made the end of the electrified line. The “advocacy paper” adopted a week earlier by the shire’s planning service committee had made it clear Baxter was unsuitable to be a train terminus (“Shire off line in train talks” The Times 21/5/18). The change has also led to an extraordinary accusation from Cr David Gill that the mayor, Cr Bryan Payne, ignored changes to a council decision, issuing a news release saying the shire “welcomes” rather than “acknowledges” a federal government commitment to at least part finance

was done before the council changed the officer’s recommendation,” Cr Payne said. “It was not intentional and, as usual, [Cr Gill] has shot off in the wrong direction. The only person introducing politics into this is him. There’s nothing political about it.” Cr Payne said he was a member of the Liberal Party and repeated that Cr Gill “is the only one making a political issue out of it”. “I take offence for him to say it’s a political issue. The media release was done by our communications department.” The report to council on 22 May by Ms Zouzoulas came in the wake of a meeting in Frankston called by Dunkley Liberal MP Chris Crewther attended by the federal Minister for Urban Infrastructure and Cities, Paul Fletcher, Committee for Greater Frankston (C4GF) chief executive Ginevra Hosking, Frankston’s mayor Cr Colin Hampton and CEO Dennis Hovenden, Cr Payne, Peninsula Health CEO Felicity Topp, Liberal MP for Hastings Neale Burgess and Liberal candidate for Carrum Donna Bauer. Neither the state Labor MP for Carrum, Sonya Kilkenny or Labor MP for Frankston, Paul Edbrooke, were at the meeting. The electrification of the railway line has become a sensitive political issue as the whole town of Baxter will come within the federal seat of Flinders – held by Liberal Greg Hunt - if

Festival brings a slice of Japan FRANKSTON High School’s senior campus was adorned with flags, banners and torii gates to welcome visitors to a day of energy, excitement and fun at the 2018 Japanese Festival on Sunday 6 May. The festival is held every two years by Frankston Susono Friendship Association, a volunteer group operating the sister city relationship on behalf of Frankston Council. The event celebrates the relationship between Frankston and Susono, which started in 1982. The association and its Japanese counterpart create opportunities for cultural exchanges. “The talented and laidback Ichimadin group played beautiful music from the shores of Okinawa, all while making Hawaiian shirts look cool,” Festival co-organiser Peter Patterson said. “Wadaiko Rindo, a Japanese drumming group, put on a stirring performance on taiko drums three times throughout the day.” “Aiki Shuren Dojo of Mt Martha put on a martial arts demonstration. The school specializes in aikidō, a modern martial art focusing on defending oneself without injuring an attacker. “Visitors found tranquility watching the tea ceremony performed by Ritsuko Greenwood and women from Chado Urasenke Tankokai, a group that preserves the traditions of the ceremony, which is a centuries-old classical Japanese art form designed to create a peaceful, refined atmosphere. “Miho Araki of ebisu design hosted calligraphy sessions where people could have their name written in the

beautiful and exquisite brushstrokes of Japanese script. “Hands-on activities included an ikebana flower-arranging workshop by the Ohara Ikebana group, and Etsuka Sawada-Fitzpatrick of Harapeko Kids showing how to make lunchboxes at a kyaraben workshop using rice, seaweed and vegies.” Visitors had the opportunity to don a traditional Japanese yukata, a colourful garment often worn to celebrations, in the school’s Japanese Garden.

Younger festivalgoers flocked to the children’s activities room run by teachers and students from Frankston High, Derinya Primary and other local schools. Kids could get creative with Japan-inspired crafts such as designing a fan, making a tonbo dragonfly, origami and a festival colouring sheet. Japanese games including yo-yo water balloons, a fishing game, kendama, spinning tops and a sumo game. The schools parade gave students studying Japanese at local schools the

opportunity to participate in festival culture. Pupils from Balnarring, Derinya, Dromana and Overport primary schools as well as Frankston High School students were a riot of colour and sound as they paraded through the festival. The festival’s first Beyblade knockout tournament was a hit with more than 80 children entering. Other activities included a bonsai display by Waverley Bonsai Group, model train lines by the Australian Japanese

Model Rail Group, Melbourne Shōgi Club teaching shōgi, Japan’s equivalent of chess, and a virtual reality demonstration that allowed people to explore the city of Susono. Stallholders sold a range of Japanese goods. The next festival in 2020 will include a delegation from Susono.

Expo helps students look to the future MORE than 1300 secondary students at a careers expo last week were able to find out about what jobs they may want to pursue after their formal education ends. The students from Frankston and the Mornington Peninsula were at the annual careers expo on Tuesday 22 May at Hastings Community Hub organised by the Frankston Mornington Peninsula Local Learning and Employment. More than 40 industry, government and education providers were on hand to explain possible career and education “pathways”. Students were able to talk with universities, apprenticeship, vocational training and education providers as well as trying bricklaying, building, and cake decorating. “The FMP Career Expo is a fantastic event which gives our young people an opportunity to explore career and pathway options all in the one place,” executive officer of the Frankston Mornington Peninsula LLEN Carol Smith said.

Looking ahead: At the FMP Career Expo are, clockwise from top left, Franck Poirier showing Keegan Liefting, of the David Scott School, Frankston, how to use an icing bag writing on a paper plate with chocolate; Ambulance Victoria’s stand with Chantelle Crawford, Lainey Hodges and Caitlin Davies, of Western Port Secondary College with ambulance officer, Amber Carey; surveyor Steve

Egg farm startup to fulfill a daughter’s dream Stephen Taylor steve@baysidenews.com.au A FREE range egg farm being developed in Somerville is more than a commercial proposition: it’s a healing space for a family and friends to come together and grieve the death of a loved one. Lil’s Yolky Dokey Farm came about after Lily Grace Lanarus, 20, died in a four-wheel-drive accident in northern Victoria earlier this year. On May 13 – Mother’s Day – she would have been celebrating her 21st birthday with mother Jacqui Lanarus and her partner Gab Banay and friends. In the long, grief-stricken days after her death, the Frankston family developed a vision that would keep their daughter’s memory alive and constant. They knew that Lily had a dream to own her own bush block, raise pasture-fed hens, and sell their free-range eggs while operating a beauty salon on her farm. Within a few weeks of Lily’s death, the family found a 20-hectare property for lease and set about establishing the farm: Lil’s dream was well on the way to fruition. “Our Lily Grace was a sensitive, passionate and funny human being who was just starting to blossom and find herself,” friend Dani Pritchard, of Mt Martha, said. “She loved spray tanning, makeup, eyelash extensions and all things beauty, but equally she enjoyed her PJs, fluffy dressing gown, going bush and living in the outdoors.” Lil’s Yolky Dokey Farm has evolved into much more than just a

business idea, Ms Pritchard said. “It’s a cathartic process that keeps everyone moving forwards as they grieve. It’s an outlet for Lily’s family and wide circle of friends to create something where they can feel close to her. It has become a healing space for us all to pour our love for Lily into something meaningful.” The six paddocks will eventually house 1450 hens in six chicken caravans. Automated doors will allow them to roam free during the day

while, at night, they will sleep on roosting perches. Their droppings will fall to the ground to become fertiliser. Numbers will stay at about 100 hens a hectare. The family believes low stocking density is the key to sustainable farming and providing a happy and healthy home for the brood. “The girls will be able to enjoy a dust bath, flap their wings in flight, lay in the sun and scratch and forage for bugs and grubs to their hearts’ content, living in the best conditions in open

pasture,” Ms Lanarus said. A Pozible crowd funding campaign (which ends in 16 days) to raise $10,000 will ease the financial pressures of establishing Lil’s dream. It will go towards building amenities, outdoor kitchen, composting toilet and running water for those who come to help and heal. “Once we hit our first target of $10,000 we would like to continue to raise another $15,000 for farm equipment, including a tractor, ride-on lawn

mower and four-wheel-drive for the farm,” Ms Lanarus said. “With our third target of $25,000 we can help Lil’s Yolky Dokey Egg Farm grow.” One of Lil’s friends summed it up: “I feel close to Lily when I am at the farm. All the hard work and effort that Lil’s tight friendship group has contributed is a reflection of how much she means to us all.” To follow and find out more about the family-run business visit facebook.com/Lils-Yolky-Dokey-Eggs.

All in the family: Linda Perrin and husband Tony are care ambassadors for OzChild. Picture: Yanni

Foster carer calls for help A SAFETY Beach family which has looked after 25 foster children over the past five years says more carers are urgently needed on the Mornington Peninsula and Frankston. Linda Perrin and husband Tony are care ambassadors for OzChild with Ms Perrin also a fulltime foster carer. “With more and more children going into care due to mental health, drug addiction and mental health, there are just not enough carers to go around,” she said. “There are a lot of myths about Foster care, but the reality is that you do not have to be a fulltime married stay-at-home parent. You can work fulltime and do one weekend a month to give another carer a break, you can be single, gay or have other children – there are really no boundaries.” Ms Perrin said, despite the inherent joys of caring for little ones in desperate need of a loving home, many people shy away for other reasons. “Some are concerned that the biological parents will know where their children are and turn up at their house,” she said. “However, the reality is that most placements are undisclosed and the parents have no idea where their children are.” The need for more carers is obvious to Ms Per-

rin: In the past three months she has cared for a newborn, 13-month-old and 20-month-old. “Not all stay long-term,” she said. “Some come for a night; others for a week. We were meant to be short term (up to six months) but we had one baby from 17 months up until he was four-and-a-half and his newborn brother until he was 17 months.” While admitting to getting “very attached” to her charges Ms Perrin said the knowledge they were going on to long-term families where they would be loved and cared for eased the pain. To attract more volunteers, Ms Perrin is holding a recruiting drive at Bentons Square shopping centre, 1-3 June. “I’ll explain to people all about it,” she said. An information night will also be held at Frankston, 6.30-8.30pm, Tuesday 19 June. It’s on Level 3 of the Landmark Corporate Centre, 454472 Nepean Highway. Those attending are asked to use the side entrance near McDonald’s. OzChild has more than 300 staff and 400 volunteers, and 440 carers across foster care, kinship care and disability services in Victoria. On any given night OzChild makes sure over 300 Victorian children have a safe place to sleep, helping over 6000 children, young people and families each year. Stephen Taylor

Hastings men enlist on Empire Day Compiled by Brodie Cowburn MESSRS F. H. Goodwin and L. Watt both of Hastings have enlisted and will enter camp shortly. The best wishes of all residents go with these two young men who are going to “do their bit” for the Empire. Empire Day celebrations passed very successfully here. A report of the proceedings will appear next issue. *** IN the 405th Casualty List, published on Thursday the following names appear under the heading of wounded: Pte. C. W. Beard, Balnarring; Pte. H. S. Sawyer, Moorooduc (gas); Sgt. S. Vialls, Carrum; and Driver T. Tulloch, Carrum. *** A PICTURE night will be given in the Frankston Mechanics’ hall on Saturday evening, June 8th, in aid of the Langwarrin Camp. A feature of the programme will be the screening of the fim taken on the occasion of the Pageant of Loyalty at Frankston. Besides pictures, there will be instrumental items, the Langwarrin orchestra will be present, and Sergeant Widburn will render several comic items. *** A FOOTBALL match between Frankston and Somerville juniors was played at Frankston on Saturday last. Frankston proved altogether too good for the visitors, whom they defeated by 7.16 to 1 point. The goal kickers for Frankston were Burton 4, Comb and Matson. Vansuylen, Biggs, and Westaway worked

hard to avert defeat, while the best for Frankston were Coxall, Burton, Gabriel, Wilkinson and Tivendale. M Kemp umpired satisfactorily. *** TODAY (Sat) a number of returned soldiers will be entertained at Frankston by members of the “Wattte Club”. A cinematograph operator will be in attendance to take a series of pictures when the soldiers arrive and during their procession through the town. We understand these pictures will be shown in connection with Captain Conants new picture play “His Only Chance” recently screened in Melbourne in connection with the Red Cross effort. It is requested that townspeople make a liberal display of bunting and that they turn out in force to welcome the soldiers so as to ensure not only a right royal welcome to our warriors but also that the picture when screened will be one worthy of Frankston. *** THE efforts of the Tyabb school committee resulted in a great success on Friday evening last at the concert and dance which had been organised in aid of the Education Department’s special Red Cross appeal. At the concert the hall was crowded, and a fair number were unable to find a seat. An excellent programme, comprised of all local talent, was submitted, and the first part, which was mostly made up by the school children, reflected great credit on Mr Hughes, Miss Young, and others who had trained them. The opportunity was taken of bid-

ding farewell and making a presentation to Mr Hughes, who is about to leave the district. *** EMPIRE Day was celebrated last Friday and although the weather was not all that could be desired for such an event, the attendance was splendid. In the morning the Somerville school children marched up to the Mechanics Institute where children from the Moorooduc and Baxter schools were already assembled. The proceedings opened with the singing of the National Anthem. Cr. Murray chairman of the school committee, in his opening address, said today the Empire was sorely pressed but all beleived that she would come out triumphantly. In speaking of the loyalty of the children, Cr Murray said that they had been saving their pocket money for Prisoners of War Fund, and in five weeks had raised £10 10s. On behalf of the school committee he wished to to thank the Baxter and Moorooduc schools for their co-operation on this occasion. *** AS was anticipated, the concert given on Empire Day in aid of the Australian Red Cross Fund, was a great musical treat. The attendance was very poor owing to laudable efforts, for the same good cause, at Seaford, Carrum and Somerville, on the same evening, attracting many local patrons. In addition, a not to-be-missedon-any-account picture film of the Frankston Pageant of Loyalty, on the 8th of June, for another most worthy cause compelled many to reserve

their shillings for such a unique and interesting treat *** MISS Gillard, who has been in charge of the Langwarrin State School for the past three years, is leaving to take charge of a school at Burnley, and is to be succeeded by Mr Clancy, a returned soldier, who though a married man with a family, enlisted and did his bit for King and country. During Miss Gillard’s stay increased interest has been taken by the parents and others in school events and it is mainly owing to her perseverance and energy *** A VERY pretty wedding was quietly celebrated at Frankston on Saturday last, the contracting parties being Mr. T. K. S. Summers, (late A.I.F) third son of Mr and Mrs. J. H. Summers, of Underbool, and Margaret, third daughter of Mr. and Mrs. W. W. Young, of Frankston. The Rev. Webster, of Mornington officiated. The bride, who was given away by her father looked charming in a dainty white frock of crepe de chene and georgette, with the customary veil and wreath of orange blossom. Miss Jean Young acted as bridesmaid. and Mr. A. G. Young (late A.I.F) supported the bride groom. *** IN aid of the above deserving cause to help the Australian fighting men in the trenches to keep fit for their great work of helping to defend Australia, the Camberwell Patriotic Players gave an enjoyable entertainment on Saturday May 25th. The Somerville Hall was filled to

the doors with a very appreciative audience. The first part consisted of a well selected variety of songs, dances etc. showing talent far above the ordinary. Mr Leslie Brunning was a host in himself and supplied the comedy element in the first part as well as in the name part of the screaming farce which followed. *** CR. J. Dobson-Hesp, J.P., Hon. Secretary of the Hobart branch of the Overseas club, and well known in newspaper circles in Southern Tasmania, together with Mrs Dobson- Hesp, paid a flying visit to the district, and spent the weekend at Frankston. *** INCLEMENT weather did not debar a crowd of patriotic performers from journeying to Pearcedale from Somerville on Wednesday evening, 22nd May in order to amuse the folks of that Village with a grand entertainment; nor did the elements prevent the inhabitants of that village from rolling up in great numbers to be entertained. Both the programme and audience were excellent, and each was thoroughly satisfied with the night. The entertainment was given in the local school room, and owing to the great crowd present there was scarcely room to pack another individual in. The proceeds amounted to nearly £5, and this will be given to the Education Department for the Red Cross appeal. *** From the pages of the Mornington Standard, 1 June 1918

THE MEANING OF EXISTENCE... AND OTHER SHORT STORIES

When A Ford Focus Looks Into Your Soul By Stuart McCullough I SWEAR it’s trying to tell me something. Without my so much as asking, it takes the initiative. It probably means well, but the cold, hard truth of the matter is that these efforts are both unnecessary and unwelcome. Put simply, it’s reading my mood all wrong and – if I’m being honest about it – I’m beginning to find it quite tedious. It’s not helpful and every time it happens it seems like a misreading of the circumstances. Honestly, it’s as though my wife’s Ford Focus doesn’t know me at all. When I’m in my wife’s car, it’s usually because it’s my turn to take the dog, Fozzie, to one of her many social activities. In many respects, I feel that I’m starting to live vicariously through our pet. If our dog had fingers instead of paws and was computer literate, she’d definitely have more facebook friends than I do. Whenever Fozzie and I travel together, we tune the radio to Classic FM. There’s something about driving around Albert Park Lake with a large dog gazing out the window to the sound of Strauss’s ‘Thus Spoke Zarathustra’ that feels right. The dog is also a big fan of Chopin, as it happens. I drop off the dog and watch as she disappears to hang out with her many friends before I return to the car. I start the engine and it’s here that the vehicle intervenes and ruins everything. Instead of Classic FM, I am often treated to a blast of GOLD FM instead. Because it occurs randomly, I’m always taken by surprise. Anyone would be. It’s no good if you’re

expecting Rachmaninov and, instead, get an earful of Barry Ryan’s ‘Eloise’ or Haysi Fantaysi. It’s hard to do a decent u-turn when your senses are being assaulted by ‘The Pina Colada Song’ by Rupert Holmes. It’s part of a startling trend. One where the devices that are so much a part of our lives have started to assume what we will and will not like. My Netflix account has a list of shows that are suggested viewing based on my previous habits. Helpfully, it states why they’re suggesting a particular show. As though to say that if you didn’t want us to suggest this God-awful movie, then you shouldn’t have had the audacity to select this completely different movie at an earlier time.

Sometimes I can see where they’re coming from. There’s some kind of logic at play. I understand that they’re suggesting ‘That’s My Boy’ starring Adam Sandler because I watched ‘The Meyerowitz Stories’ which also stars Adam Sandler even though the latter is a thoughtful family drama and the former is the cinematic equivalent of the start of daylight savings in that a period of time disappears for no good reason. On other occasions, the folks at Netflix are way, way off. Recently, my nephew and niece had a show about shark attacks and a documentary of Auschwitz appear on their ‘suggested viewing’ list. They are six and eight years old respectively and only watch kids films. How you get from ‘Toy Story’ to Nazi atrocities is

beyond me. ITunes is the same. It makes all kinds of bizarre-o suggestions as to what it thinks I should be listening to. No – I won’t be listening to Britney Spears performing her hits with the London Philharmonic Orchestra while accompanying herself on a Zimbabwean Thumb-Piano. Nor will I be investing the time or emotional energy required to listen to the nine-volume box set version of Limp Bizkit’s ‘Chocolate Starfish and the Hot Dog Flavored Water’, even if the computer says I should. I couldn’t stand it the first time round. It’s unlikely I’ll change my mind and declare Fred Durst an underappreciated genius any time soon. The only thing worse than our

devices getting it wrong is when they get it right. When they suggest things that we might like that we’d never admit to others. It’s at those moments that I feel violated. I want the computer to do as I say. I don’t want it looking into my soul. That, deep down, I really want to re-watch the entire series of Anne of Green Gables starring Megan Follows, Colleen Dewhurst and Richard Farnsworth because viewing it over my sisters’ shoulders when I was a kid was a formative experience, is something that only I should know. I don’t want it thrown in my face. Perhaps I doth protest too much. Rather than being offended by the decision of my wife’s Ford Focus to change radio stations, maybe it knows me better than myself. It knows that, deep-down, I don’t really want to be listening to high-falutin’ orchestral works and symphonic tone poems. It can tell that what I really crave is a three minute pop-song with an ear-worm chorus that I’m going to be humming under my breath for the rest of the day whether I want to or not. I’ve got to wrap this up. Soon, I’ve got to go and pick up the dog. She doesn’t like to wait. I’ll admit I feel a little nervous, as I’m not sure what the Ford Focus has in store for me. It’s going to be quite revealing, I think. Only once I hear the radio will I truly know what it is I’m thinking. It’s a reckoning of a kind. I’ll just need to make sure that I’ve got it set back on Classic FM before the dog gets in. I wouldn’t want her to judge me. She has strong views on music. stuart@stuartmccullough.com Frankston Times 28 May 2018

Main Street Mornington is renowned for it’s great choice of dinning venues and during the festival, National and local bands will descend on Mornington to deliver superb entertainment which goes hand in hand with delicious food and wine! Saturday June 9th, Main Street will come alive with 6 FREE street Music Zones from DOC Mornington up to Riot Art. Music will be played on the street between 11am – 5pm with incredible acts from SugaTree, Adrian Whyte Trio, Chicago Dime, Dixie Rhythm

kings, Wilson & White, Rock n Roll with Diddy Reyes and more (full street program online). There will be a produce and food street market lining the pavements, nothing like a bit of music and food to soothe the soul. Get your farm fresh eggs and produce, artisan breads, specialty homemade condiments and sauces, and whilst you’re at it, pop into one of the many cafes for a bit of breakfast or lunch. Bring the kids down to the Saturday market for FREE face painting and balloon twisting, all of which makes for an exciting family day out. On Sunday the music entertainment in the street continues with some big bands from 12pm – 3.30pm finishing with Bluetone Assemly outside The Grand. Don’t forget to also stop past one of the “Busk Stops” to

hear up and coming local talent – you never know who you might discover! The music continues up at the Historical Mornington Railway with entertainment beginning from Mornington Station on all three trains. Following on from a sell-out Melbourne Arts Centre performance, take a deep dive into one of the greatest soundtracks of all time, at our exclusive Mornington Winter Music Festival special event. The Big Chill hit screens in 1983 its pitch-perfect use of classic soul, Motown and pop-rock hits from the 60s and 70s instantly dug hooks into the popular imagination. Now the spirits of Aretha Franklin, Marvin Gaye, The Temptations and more will be channelled by some of Melbourne’s hottest musical maestros. Cookin’ On 3 Burners are

Australia’s hardest hitting Hammond Organ Trio – joining the dots between Deep Funk, Raw Soul, Organ Jazz & Boogaloo. With 15 venues and over 35 acts there is something for everyone. From the Modern Jazz sounds of Arandu at God’s Kitchen to the bluesy guitar of local Rob Papp playing at Beaches. Regular festival personality Wilbur Wilde appears at The Royal or to Simon Imrei, indie/Folk Melbourne guitarist at Assaggini. Or if you prefer some ‘Soul Mama” don’t miss Angie Soul at Casa De Playa or the funk grooves of Jourdain & Jack at Brass Razu. The festival has the music and venue for your perfect weekend out.

Powerhouses collapse in round of upsets DIVISION ONE

By Brodie Cowburn AFTER interleague action saw MPNFL football take a break last weekend, Division One football returned with a bang on Saturday in a day of shocking results. The biggest turn up of the round came from Olympic Oval, where Rosebud took on a normally dependable Frankston YCW at home. Frankston YCW were coming off their first loss of the season last round against Pines, and would have been keen to stamp their authority with a dominant performance against lowly ninth placed Rosebud. Despite that, Rosebud did well to hang in the game with their stronger opponents, only trailing by three points at quarter time and two points at half time. Going into the final break, the scores were tied at 54 apiece, setting up for a thrilling last quarter. Swayed by the momentum of the home crowd, it was Rosebud who stormed home to take all four points in a nail biting game, claiming the win 10.12 (72) to 10.7 (67) Michael Debenham kicked three goals and put in a best on ground performance for his Frankston YCW side, but it was not enough to drag them over the line as the traditional powerhouse lost their second game in a row. There was another stunning result on Saturday as ladder leaders Sorrento travelled to the home of the Frankston Bombers to take on the sixth placed outfit. Frankston have suffered from a very inconsistent start to their season, and were widely expected to struggle against Sorrento, who have been outstanding so far this year. Sorrento were also helped by the fact they had very few representatives in the MPNFL side for interleague football last weekend, meaning they came into this game fit and rested. It was the Bombers who shocked their home crowd by racing out of the

blocks with a five goal first quarter, taking a 13 point lead into the first break. From then on Sorrento wrestled their way back into the contest to go into half time with a narrow lead, but as the match continued they failed to put the feisty Frankston side away. The contest remained close throughout the day, but in the end it was Frankston who kicked away to take out a hard fought victory. Samuel Fox was the pick of the goalscorers for the winning side with three majors, while Jake Greeley and former Western Bulldog Jarrad Grant contributed with two goals each of

their own in the 12.11 (83) to 11.7 (73) win. Over at Pines’ Eric Bell Reserve, the home team played host to a Mornington side riding the momentum of a momentous win last round against Bonbeach. Looking to make it two on the trot after claiming their first win of the season in their previous game, Mornington looked a good chance to cause another upset and keep their good form going. As the game got underway, Mornington looked much the better side, taking an 11 point lead into quarter time and playing with confidence.

The contest was neck and neck from that point on, with the margin at threequarter time standing at just three points Mornington’s way. Despite showing a lot of fight, the brave Mornington side were overrun in the last quarter, as Pines piled on six goals to one in the final quarter to take out a comfortable win. Aaron Edwards returned to form with a dominating performance for Pines, with his seven goal haul proving the difference between the two sides in a 15.9 (99) to 11.11 (77) win. Elsewhere, Bonbeach put on a dominant performance at home, bouncing

back from their disappointing loss to Mornington with a comprehensive victory against Seaford. The sides entered the game placed seventh and eighth on the ladder, and both sides were looking to make amends for bad losses in the previous round. On paper the match looked as if it should be a close contest, but Bonbeach were quick to make sure that was not the case, holding Seaford to just one behind in their first quarter and taking a 21 point lead into the first break. Seaford were unable to fight their way back into the game, and Bonbeach stayed in control thanks to great performances from in-form Jackson Casey, Jack Williams, and Beau Bailey who was the pick of the goalkickers with three majors. Any chance of a Seaford comeback was ultimately crushed by their own poor goalkicking, as they fell to Bonbeach 14.8 (92) to 6.12 (48) At Regents Park on Saturday, Edithvale-Aspendale and Mt Eliza were set for an important match which would see the winner cement their position in the top three. Given the other results of the day, the winner of this clash would also go level on points with the two top sides, raising the stakes for the game to another level. In the early stages, it was Mt Eliza who looked as if they would come out on top, establishing a strong 21 point lead at the quarter time break. Despite their strong start, complacency got the better them, and Edithvale-Aspendale stormed into the lead with a stunning second quarter that saw them score eight goals to zero. Mt Eliza were much better after the main break, but ultimately could not fight back from Edithvale-Aspendale’s brilliant second quarter effort, as the score eventually finished 12.12 (84) to 9.16 (70) Edithvale-Aspendale’s way. Michael Bussey was the best on ground on the day, with his four goals helping to gain his side an important victory.

Thrillers and thrashings in Division Two action DIVISION TWO

By Brodie Cowburn IT was a weekend of vastly contrasting games in MPNFL Division Two action, as two matches were decided by a solitary point while two matches were decided by margins of over 80. At Ballam Park, Karingal suffered an almighty scare as Red Hill battled hard to nearly upset their second placed opponents. The lead swung back and forth throughout the match, and going into three-quarter time it looked as if an upset was on the cards as Red Hill held a seven point lead away from home. In a nail biting finish, Karingal were able to just gain the upper hand and held the narrowest of leads as the final siren sounded, taking out nervy win 9.12 (66) to 9.11 (65). Karingal put together a great team performance to get the win, with eight individual goalkickers making a contribution. Elsewhere, Langwarrin also had to fight tooth and nail to secure a one point victory, with their win coming against third placed Chelsea in a stunning upset performance. While both sides traded blows and looked equally matched heading into half time, Chelsea were able to stamp their authority in the third quarter, heading into the main break with a comfortable 19 point lead. Despite holding what looked like a strong

PAGE 26

Frankston Times 28 May 2018

lead, Chelsea were unable to weather the final quarter Langwarrin storm, as they raced home with a five goals to two blitz. Curtis Bywater was Chelsea’s best on ground, as he booted six goals for the second consecutive week, but his effort was topped by another dominant Jesse Murphy display for Langwarrin, as he kicked seven goals. Murphy has now scored a remarkable 18 goals in his past three games, with his seven on Saturday helping his side to a thrilling 15.8 (98) to 14.13 (97) victory. Another struggler for the season in Somerville also celebrated a win on the weekend, although they did so in a much more comfortable fashion than their Langwarrin or Karingal rivals. Hosting Tyabb at home, Somerville impressed with a dominant and assertive display of football. Seven goals from Somerville player/coach Andrejs Everitt in a best on ground performance was the highlight of the day, as his side ran home with a more than comfortable 82 point victory, with the score being 20.12 (132) to 7.8 (50) at the final siren. If things were easy for Somerville, they were even more so for Dromana, who pummelled a helpless Pearcedale to extend their unbeaten start to the season. The tenth placed Pearcedale were always outsiders for this clash, and the game went

as expected. Pearcedale could only manage one goal in the entire first half of football, and went into the half time break down by an insurmountable 78 points. During the second half, Pearcedale looked more threatening, but ultimately they could do little to stop the rampant Dromana train that is currently running right through the middle of the league. Dromana finished with 12 individual goalkickers, with Ethan Johnstone and Jack Gipp the best among them with four apiece. Dromana will face off against Langwarrin next weekend unbeaten, top of the ladder, and full of confidence following a 111 point win, 6.12 (48) to 25.9 (159). Crib Point also had a great weekend, as they hosted Devon Meadows at home on Saturday. Sitting rooted to the bottom of the ladder after a winless start to the year, the home side came racing out of the blocks to take a 12 point lead into the quarter time break. The home side held their lead throughout the day but couldn’t gain enough momentum to land the killer blow, as they went into three-quarter time only ten points ahead their Devon Meadows opponents. Despite the pressure, Crib Point held strong to pick up their first win of the year, running out 9.8 (62) to 6.11 (47) winners.

Morris-Thomas new Seaford coach SOCCER

By Craig MacKenzie SEAFORD United has appointed star midfielder Matt Morris-Thomas as senior coach after Paulo Pinheiro’s resignation last week. Pinheiro fell on his sword with his side staring at a second successive relegation following a nightmare start to the 2018 State 3 South-East season. Morris-Thomas, 28, will be assisted by former Seaford player and reserves coach Stuart Mitchell and faces a monumental task to avoid the drop. He has decided to step down as a player which caught most observers by surprise given the lack of quality in the senior squad. “This is my first senior coaching job and I didn’t want to put too much pressure on myself but it’s a decision we can review down the track,” MorrisThomas said. “I’ve always wanted to get into coaching so after Paulo resigned I decided to put my hand up and give it a go.” Former Seaford defender Cam Bryden, Frankston Pines defender Dion Brown and ex-Rosebud Heart winger Callum Richardson signed with Seaford late last week and it’s believed that Morris-Thomas is tracking at least two other players. Brown is serving a three-match suspension but will be available for Seaford’s catch-up round away match against Brighton on 9 June. Despite losing 3-1 at home to league leader South Yarra on Saturday Harry McCartney reports that Seaford fans were heartened by a much more competitive display from a side which has struggled for some time. South Yarra took the lead in the 20th minute when Seaford keeper Pat Bretherton did well to save a shot from Elvis Imarhiagbe only for Samuel Mepham to tuck away the rebound. The home team hit back in the 33rd minute when a Dylan Waugh cross was met by Matty Schwellinger who slid in at the back post to level. In the 40th minute a South Yarra free-kick played over the top of the defensive line was volleyed home by Thomas Meredith to restore South Yarra’s lead. A handling error by Bretherton in the 80th minute gave Meredith a second goal and put the contest out of Seaford’s reach. In sharp contrast to Seaford’s season State 3 promotion candidate Skye United recorded its sixth straight win when it travelled to Whitehorse United last weekend and won 2-1.

After a dour first half a left-foot strike from captain Marcus Collier in the first minute of the second half broke the deadlock. The home team hit back less than 10 minutes later when Peter Seehusen converted from the penalty spot. Skye weathered the storm for the next 15 minutes then Chris Driver’s corner found Caleb Nicholes unmarked on the penalty spot and he volleyed home to clinch all three points. In State 2 South-East news Peninsula Strikers had to settle for a share of the spoils after drawing 2-2 at home to Doncaster Rovers last weekend. Strikers took the lead in the 32nd minute with a slick break that saw Ryan Thompson send Femi Orenuga clear and the former Everton academy striker rounded Doncaster keeper Jayden Allan and tapped the ball into the unguarded goal. The visitors levelled in the 63rd minute when substitute Silver Issoufson was unmarked at the back post to chest in a cross from the right. Strikers went back in front in the 79th minute after Nathan Smith sent Orenuga down the left and he rolled the ball inside into the path of Ryan Wilson whose superb first-time strike from the edge of the box gave Allan no chance.

But Issoufson proved to be the thorn in Strikers’ side and in the 86th minute he skated clear on the left then chipped the ball to the far post where Peter Addo headed home. Fellow State 2 outfit Frankston Pines was dealt a cruel blow when a deflected strike by Maxime Lucas in the 92nd minute gave North Caulfield a 2-1 victory at Monterey Reserve on Sunday. Pines coach Paul Williams surprised by playing captain Graham Hill up front and it looked like a masterstroke when Hill was played in by CJ Hodgson in the 12th minute to put Pines ahead. In the 21st minute Pines midfielder Will O’Brien received a second yellow card and was sent off. North Caulfield took until the 74th minute to level after a superb turn and pinpoint strike by striker Daniel Sacks. Pines gave as good as it got but Hill and substitute Mitch Landers both blew great chances to score late in the contest. In State 1 South-East a Brandon Jansz strike in injury time continued Mornington’s recent resurgence when it travelled to Victory Park and defeated Caulfied United Cobras 2-1 on Saturday.

Keegan Ziada had opened the scoring for Mornington in the 58th minute before Danny Topping equalised in the 77th minute. Dale White’s side has now won four on the trot and sits third but still some way off the pace set by Manningham and Richmond. In State 4 South Baxter lost 2-1 away to Keysborough on Saturday. Baxter hit the front after seven minutes when Jake Kidder won the ball in midfield and set up Matt Morgan for a close range finish into the roof of the net. Alan Lipsett should have put the visitors further ahead in the 15th minute but he somehow failed to convert a tap-in from a Kidder cross from the left. Against the run of play a cross from Kui Mu in the 21st minute picked out Nathan Calle who chested down then volleyed home to make it 1-1. Striker Lawrence Komba from Skye United made his Baxter debut in the second half but was scythed down in the 60th minute after a superb run into the Keysborough area. Baxter fans were mystified when no penalty was awarded and Komba was carried off. In the 70th minute Keysborough’s Sebastian Gueho did well to win the

ball in midfield then send man-of-thematch Masur Kuei clear on the left and his finish settled the issue. Baxter’s best was goalkeeper James Foster who denied Keysborough on several occasions. In State 5 South Somerville Eagles suffered a setback to their promotion push by going down 1-0 at home to Pakenham United in a tough physical contest on Saturday. A slip from the otherwise impressive Matt Swanson in the 70th minute allowed Pakenham substitute Daniel Castillo to tuck the ball away from close range. First half chances to Somerville player-coach Dave Greening and Andrew Yeo should have sent the home team in with a lead at the break. Greening wasted a further two chances in the second half while Eagles keeper Brad Klarenbeek saved a penalty. “Overall I can’t fault the effort of my players today, we gave everything but it was just one of those days where we missed some chances and got caught with a sucker punch,” Greening said. “We kept going right until the final whistle but fair play to Pakenham, they are a tough, hard working side.” In NPL2 news Langwarrin lost 4-1 at home to Brunswick City last weekend. Paul Speed put Langy ahead in the 14th minute but goals from Juan Portillo, Jakub Mlcak, Ali Turgut and Baggio Yusuf gave the visitors an emphatic victory. In NPLW news, Southern United clashed with Bulleen on Sunday with a late kick-off to the senior match. Southern’s under-12s lost 2-0, the under-14s suffered a rare defeat going down 3-1 with Candy Kilderry scoring for Southern from the penalty spot, the under-16s lost 5-2 with Haylea Porter scoring twice for Southern while the under-19s lost 5-0. Here are next weekend’s games: SATURDAY 3pm: Melbourne Victory v Langwarrin (Epping Stadium), Mornington v Eltham Redbacks (Dallas Brooks Park), Doveton v Frankston Pines (Waratah Reserve ), Skye Utd v Middle Park (Skye Recreation Reserve), Dingley Stars v Seaford Utd (Chadwick Reserve), Baxter v Sandown Lions (Baxter Park), Drouin Dragons v Somerville Eagles (Bellbird Park).

Santa presents in Group One Goodwood

Group One gift: Santa Ana Lane provides trainer Anthony Freedman with his second Group One in May. Picture: Supplied

By Ben Triandafillou PINECLIFF, Mount Eliza-based trainer Anthony Freedman has notched his second $1 million Group One sprint feature at Morphettville for the month of May. Freedman’s five-year-old gelding Santa Ana Lane flew late to capture South Australia’s premier race, the $1 million Group One Goodwood on Saturday 19 May, just two weeks after his star filly Shoals claimed the $1 million Group One Sangster Stakes. Freedman’s racing manager Brad Taylor said Santa Ana Lane had given every indication that he was ready to deliver in the Group One race. “We were super-confident coming here,” he said. “His work during the week was very good. He just needed luck. “It was a super ride from Ben (Melham). He found all the gaps and produced that burst we knew he had.” The Group One worthy ride by Melham saw Santa Ana Lane settle at the rear of the field before darting towards the inside rail and letting down in the final 150 meters to run away from 2017 Goodwood runnerup, Missrock, who again settled for second place. Freedman’s Adelaide sprint racing

double bought up the stables fifth Group One victory for the season. He’ll be looking to add another one to the tally when Santa Ana Lane linesup in the 1350m Stradbroke Handicap in Brisbane on Saturday 9 June, alongside stablemate Mr Sneaky. Freedman said the well-travelled Santa Ana Lane, who has competed across five states in his 26-start career, would return to his Pinecliff stables before heading interstate for the Stradbroke. “He’ll spend a few days in a paddock and then we’ll take him to Flemington and then hopefully get a flight to Brisbane,” he said. Freedman also said on his website that Shoals, who was looking at travelling to Royal Ascot this year, will be spelled after winning her third Group One race from her past four starts, and will be targeted towards the $13 million The Everest. “She has nothing left to prove this season,” he said. “She has won from 1200 (metres) to a mile, won in three states and beaten the older mares twice. “She has had a terrific season, to win three Group Ones with her just shows the talent she has.”

New Zealand snaps first victory By Ben Triandafillou AFL New Zealand has recorded their first win on Australian soil after defeating a Mornington Peninsula interleague team on Friday 11 May. In a close encounter, New Zealand’s under-18 boy’s side (6.9.45) saluted by five points over the Mornington Peninsula Junior Football League boys (5.10.40) at Bluescope Oval, Hastings.

PAGE 28

Frankston Times 28 May 2018

After a spine-tingling Haka, New Zealand were first on the scoreboard as Quinn Pocock snapped the opening goal for the visitors. New Zealand looked to narrowly contain the lead throughout the match, but the home side didn’t cave in and continued to chip away at a 15-point margin heading into the final quarter. The MPJFL boy’s side fought to the final whistle but it was New Zealand who claimed the victory.

New Zealand’s victory in the under-18 boys match flipped the results from the MPJFL’s New Zealand Tour over the Anzac Day weekend which saw both the MPJFL’s under-14s and under-15/16s boy’s sides return home as victors. The Bluescope Steelers Youth Girls weren’t as successful on the score board over the New Zealand Tour, but had the honour of being the first girls’ team to play on Westpac Stadium

against New Zealand in a curtain raiser to the AFLNZ V AFL Academy level one game. MPJFL president Andrew Souter said competing against an international side is an incredible experience to offer the players. “It is always an honour and a privilege to play representative sport at any level, however to play an international representative match is an opportunity that most will never

experience,” he said. “Overall these young people did Australia, our league and themselves very proud by displaying fantastic sportsmanship and comradery over the tour. “We are all extremely keen to ensure that this exciting venture continues.”

Gulls salute in onepoint nail biters BASKETBALL

DIVISION One was full of nail-biters in week nine of the Big V, with every game from the Bayside clubs resulting in one-point victories. Chelsea Gulls notched up two of those wins as they clutched one-point victories over Geelong Supercats (8887) and Whittlesea Pacers (96-97). The Gulls survived an overtime scare at home to pip the Supercats, with Corey Standerfer’s (15pts, 11rbs, 11ast) free throw proving pivotal in the side’s success. Matt Brasser (22pts) and Mitch Riggs (22pts) also delivered for the Gulls, while the visitors managed 16 points out of Lewis Varley. The Gulls backed it up on the Sunday with another one-point victory after travelling behind the Pacers by as much as 15 points during the game. Stewart-Paul Tyrell delivered a tip‐in in the dying seconds to snatch the win, while Corey Standerfer finished with 32 points, and Mitch Riggs and Matt Brasser ended with 21 points each. Chelsea Gulls head coach Peter Caspersz said there were mixed feelings after the narrow victories.

“It’s certainly nice to win the tight matches as it shows composure,” he said. “We are certainly scoring high, but it’s a matter of locking down our defence now in training and making sure the others can’t match it with us.” Western Port Steelers also clung on to a one-point margin as they held off a strong, late surge by Collingwood All Stars (83-84) to slot their eighth win for the season. For the victors, Dylan Travis (28pts) led the way in a tough battle and the All Stars’ Manny Hendrix (28pts, 9ast) starred in a late charge home. In the women’s division one, Chelsea Gulls and Western Port Steelers both suffered losses at home to the Geelong Supercats and Camberwell Dragons respectively. The Supercats had all the momentum in the middle stages of the game against Chelsea and while the Gulls had the edge in the fourth quarter, it only bought the margin to within single digits. Geelong walked away with a nine-point victory (60-69). It continues to be a long season for the Steelers adding a 10th loss to their tally as the Dragons (39-51) secured

their seventh win and moved into fourth position. In division two, the Southern Peninsula men had a 53-point loss to Craigieburn Eagles (102-49) as they take their winning streak to eight wins and move to the top of the table. This was the last game the Sharks had without star recruit Colin Voss who had been sidelined and they’re hoping with him back in the side the results can start to turn around. The Mornington Breakers had a 17-point loss to the North East Bushrangers but played with a short bench so in a sense it was a brave effort. Fiona Darnell scored a game high of 20 points for the Breakers while Ricki Lee McCombe also had a solid game scoring 18 points.

Waves claim Bayside clash

NETBALL

PENINSULA Waves have saluted in the Bayside clash against the Southern Saints in round five of the VNL championships. Dominating the championship contest from the get-go, the Waves extended their lead to win by 34 points (65-31) on Wednesday 23 May and secure their second win for the season. The Waves bounced back after their loss to Geelong the week before and moved seamlessly together across the court, with Victorian Fury training partner Gabriel Dwyer showcasing her skills as a goal shooter. Peninsula Waves championship coach Jess Whitfort said it was great to see everything fall into place. “It’s always a good rivalry between us,” she said. “We went into it focussed on our game and made sure we worked on the area’s that needed improving from the week before. “We knew what we wanted to do and the

gameplay all came together on the night.” While the Southern Saints still remain winless heading into round six, head coach Jade Heinrich said the wins will come once they find their rhythm on the court. “On paper we matched-up alright [against Peninsula Waves], but we just made too many errors without pressure and then we couldn’t turn enough of the ball over,” she said. “We were behind the eight-ball but I don’t think we need to change our game plan. It was more our passing placement and execution that we will be looking to improve so we will come back to that at training and the wins will happen if we get that together.” Peninsula Waves also had a two-point victory over the Southern Saints (46-44) in division one, but the Southern Saints struck back in the under19s and claimed a 10-point victory (44-54). The Waves will face Boroondara Express in round six while the Southern Saints meet the reigning premiers North East Blaze.
