Departure from Dolphins a ‘kick in the guts’ Brodie Cowburn firstname.lastname@example.org FORMER general manager of the Frankston Football Club Gary Buckenara said he is “bitterly disappointed” at the club’s decision to let him go on the eve of the 2019 VFL season. Buckenara was appointed general manager of the Dolphins in January 2017, and helped guide the club back into the VFL after they had their license revoked in 2016. On 25 March it was announced that they had parted ways.
Buckenara told The Times he was “blindsided” by the decision. “It’s one of the biggest kicks in the guts I’ve ever had in footy. I thought I’d done a great job for them to help them get to a position where there was light at the end of the tunnel,” he said. “We were hosting more games, there were more dollars coming in. We were looking at plans to host AFLW games and JLT preseason games, we were also looking at getting into the VFLW space. There were some really good plans, there were more opportunities for the business to grow and with that I would have grown too. That’s why
I’ve been so bitterly disappointed that they’ve made that decision and didn’t give me the opportunity to see through the plan. I had a vision of another five years there. I felt it was a rough decision not to let me see it through. “Over the last couple of years the club lost its license and that’s when I came in. The big focus was to start raising money and increase membership, and that’s what I’ve done for the last two years. They’ve gone from 180 members to 1200 plus there’s been record sponsorship. I’ve been a part of lobbying to get broadcast quality lights and extra facilities, we’d got to a

point now where there was some light at the end of the tunnel. I was blindsided myself when they said they wanted a different management style.” Buckenara said he feels it might be time for him to move on from football after the Dolphins decided his time was up. “To be honest you never say never, but I’d prefer my next role to not be in football. Basically with my experiences now of what the AFL system is like and the type of people it attracts, it’s become a very selfish environment. I love the game, I’ve loved being part of it, and I think I’ve made a difference.”
The Dolphins are now in the process of appointing someone to the general manager role on an interim basis. Buckenara said he was told the club was looking for a more “analytical” approach to the role. “A general manager has to wear so many hats, it’s not just one job. My priority has been fundraising, sponsorship, increasing membership, and improving our perception with the community and the local clubs. I think I’ve done a good job of that. I guess the club and the directors wanted something different.” Continued Page 3

Budget boost for Peninsula Health partnership Brodie Cowburn email@example.com THE Future Health Hub partnership between Peninsula Health and Monash University has received a shot in the arm from the federal government, with Dunkley MP Chris Crewther and health minister Greg Hunt announcing $32 million for the aged care and mental health project. The budget boost for the partnership was announced alongside a $10 million funding injection into the paediatric emergency centre at Frankston Hospital. The Health Futures Hub project has received bipartisan support from both major federal parties. Health Minister Greg Hunt said “this funding will help deliver new research and treatment programs for our elderly and those with addiction and mental health issues, backed by new state of the art physical and data infrastructure at Frankston Hospital and the neighbouring Monash Peninsula campus for the Health Futures Hub. “This will mean that the Mornington Peninsula and Frankston communities will see the direct benefit from research that is undertaken in their community, for their community.” Dunkley MP Chris Crewther said “in the last five years emergency department presentations to the Frankston emergency department

Buckenara ‘blindsided’ by booting Continued from Page 1 Frankston Football Club president Peter Geddes acknowledged Buckenara as a “factor” in the club returning to the VFL for the 2018 season, but told The Times “it was best for the club to continue in a different direction.” “Gary played a role in getting us back into the VFL, as did many people. We had a lot of people contribute,” he said. “We’re about halfway towards our objectives to make sure our club stays out of the hands of administrators. That process doesn’t finish until 2020, so that’s been the compelling
drive. That’s the significant factor in the decision to move in this certain direction.” The Dolphins’ season begins this Saturday at home against Essendon. Geddes said that the club is “comfortable” with the decision to part ways with Buckenara so close to the first game of the year. “I guess the timing is something you’re never really in control of, things were working out differently than we had hoped and we had to make a decision. The timing is matter of history, and we’re comfortable with the decision,” he said.
“We have got a process in place going forward. We’re comfortable we’ve got the system to maintain stability and steps forward in this difficult time. We’ve currently got people who have just stepped up and taken those roles but by end of this week we’ll have someone to take on an interim role as manager of the club. “On behalf of members, sponsors and stakeholders we would like to wish Gary all the best in his future endeavours.” The Dolphins’ season opener against Essendon will be played on 7 April at 2pm at Skybus Stadium.

have grown by over 20 per cent.” “Providing a dedicated emergency department for children will enable the emotional needs of sick and injured children to be met and ensures they are protected from the stressful situations that occur in emergency departments. “This investment will improve the emergency department experience of children and their families, improve waiting times and ensure that children receive high quality care in the right place at the right time.” Frankston mayor Cr Michael O’Reilly said “improving the availability and accessibility of facilities and programs to support mental health and drug and alcohol dependent clients in the region is a priority of council and local organisations including Peninsula Health, Monash University Peninsula Campus, and Frankston Private Hospital.” “We continue to work closely with these key organisations and all levels of government to ensure the provision of services and programs meet the future needs of the community. Council thanks the Federal Government and Federal Opposition for their commitment towards delivering this ground-breaking service.” Dunkley candidate Peta Murphy promised $21 million towards the partnership if Labor wins government at the May election (“University and hospital team up for tests, The Times, 22/1/19).

is richer for it, having even more world class street art right here in our own city. “For the first time we saw groups of people, including camera clubs and photography meetups, exploring the laneways of Frankston’s city centre throughout the week as the artists created their masterpieces. The artists doing an impromptu painting in Stiebel Place during the Block Party was a hit. “It was great to see the heart of Frankston come to life during The Big Picture Fest and our Block Party.” He said the Big Picture Fest will attract people to Frankston for “years to come.”
THE 2019 Big Picture Fest was heralded as a “great week” by Frankston mayor Cr Michael O’Reilly. The festival saw talented artists come to Frankston from overseas to put up massive, towering artworks. Local artists also expressed themselves by getting in on the action. “In my opinion, our street art now rivals that of any city,” Cr O’Reilly said. “We have a growing collection of urban and vibrant street art by renowned artists not only from around the world, but also from right here home grown in Frankston City. It was such a great week that culminated in an explosive weekend of street art and celebrations. Frankston City

Kingston recycling out of landfill Brodie Cowburn firstname.lastname@example.org AFTER being forced to send around 1300 tonnes of recyclable materials to landfill in the last month, Kingston Council has secured a deal to have all of their recycling properly processed. Kingston were among more than 20 councils caught up in the state’s recycling crisis, after the closure of two SKM recycling centres was or-
dered following action from the Environment Protection Authority. The EPA ordered the closure of SKM’s Coolaroo and Laverton sites on 15 February. Initially a deal was worked out with alternative recycling provider Polytrade to have 20 per cent of Kingston’s recycling properly processed (“Negotiations to save Kingston recycling from landfill”, The Times, 27/2/19). Over a month later, Kingston has negotiated to ensure that all recycling from the munici-
pality is diverted away from landfill. Kingston city assets and environment general manager Daniel Freer said “we’re pleased that 100 per cent of Kingston’s recyclables are once again being collected for recycling. Council was disappointed that the recent recycling crisis which impacted more than 20 local councils had forced some Kingston recyclables to be sent to landfill.” “The closure occurred after the EPA took necessary action and temporarily closed recycling company
SKM, which receives Kingston’s recyclable materials, and required cleanup works at the site. In the meantime, Kingston has been able to negotiate an agreement with an alternative recycling provider,” he said. “At first 20 per cent of Kingston’s recyclables were accepted, this was later increased to 70 per cent and now to 100 per cent, which is great news. Sadly, between mid-February to mid-March around 1300 tonnes of recyclable material had to be sent to landfill.
“Kingston looks forward to SKM resuming full operations as soon as possible.” Frankston Council are not among the 20 councils that have been forced to dump their recycling in landfill in the wake two SKM facilities being shut down. Frankston mayor Michael O’Reilly told The Times earlier in the month that “the collection and processing of around 550-600 tonnes of recyclable waste each fortnight will continue as usual.”

Students get involved with environment week ENVIRONMENT Week at The Briars historic property, Mt Martha included activities and half-day programs for students in years 1-6. Schools could choose Engaging with Nature, Indigenous Connection to Country, Homestead Heritage and Sustainable Living with children exploring two areas in their chosen program. In Engaging with Nature, students took part in weaving and visited the Briars Nature Nook to check for birds, bats and wildlife in the nesting boxes, as well as read interpretative signs. On the wetlands boardwalk they stopped to explore the sounds, plants and animals, and observed and sketched birds with Birdlife Mornington Peninsula. Some got close to emus and wallabies. Local leaders explained Aboriginal culture while the students tasted bush tucker and gained insights into bush craft, language and community. Indigenous man Lionel Lauch shared his knowledge of food and fibre plants and wetlands flora. He led the children through the wetlands, while explaining how the plants are harvested and used for food, medicine and utensils. The Briars Homestead was home to the Balcombe family from 1846-1976 and students saw how life was then and now. They were shown how the family thrived in an isolated colony where “reduce, reuse and recycle” were commonplace. They visited the heritage vegetable garden to see pumpkins, carrots and strawberries grown organically then and now. Years 3-6 students explored the Eco Living Display Centre and learned about “living green”. They saw first-hand how they can reduce waste at home and learn about decomposition, and investigated what things can influence energy efficiency. Monash Prime Science Team hosted hands-on science activities to create and measure energy.

Rain a blow to beach water quality
Five of the Mornington Peninsula’s Port Phillip beaches are ranked in the top 10 for water quality by Environment Protection Authority Victoria. Top of the 36-beach list for having the best water quality over summer was Santa Casa, followed closely by Easter, The Dell and Portarlington – all beaches on the Bellarine peninsula. Portsea and Rosebud came in at equal five, up from eight the previous summer. Overall, water quality at the bay’s beaches was rated good throughout summer, except after large rain events which produced days when swimming should not take place. Brighton came in as the worst of 36 bay beaches checked by the EPA. The beach was adversely affected after a sewage leak in a nearby street which triggered poor water quality for seven days in a row. The EPA’s chief environmental scientist Dr Andrea Hinwood said water quality was “fairly even across locations”. “Whatever contaminants wash off the streets of Melbourne in a rain storm wind up in the bay, bringing with them the risks of infections, stomach upsets and skin irritation,” she said. Contaminants washing into the bay included animal droppings, litter, plastics, cigarette butts and detergents. “There are several things you can do about that: don’t litter, be careful what you allow to wash into the gutters and stormwater drains in your street and check the Yarra and Bay website before you hit the beach,” Dr Hinwood said. One other common cause of poor water quality is algae, which occurs naturally in the bay and varies according to conditions. “We advise people to avoid swimming near stormwater or river outlets for 24 to 48 hours after heavy rain, because that’s when animal droppings and other contaminants are washed into the bay from beaches and streets,” Dr Hinwood said.
ALLEGATIONS that an electrician and apprentice were kicked off a work site in Frankston for not being union members will be heard at the Federal Court. The Australian Building and Construction Commission has begun legal proceedings against the Construction, Forestry, Maritime, Mining and Energy Union, alleging that two workers employed by a solar electrical subcontractor were prevented from working at the site of the Monash Peninsula Student Accommodation Project. The ABCC filed a statement of claim alleging that the two workers were approached by a CFMMEU official on 13 September 2018, who told them to get off the site when the workers revealed they were not part of a union. It is alleged the two workers were prevented from working on the site that day. The ABCC is alleging contraventions of the Fair Work Act.

WHILE sometimes it doesn’t always appear to be a place for a leisurely swim, Safety Beach is in the top 10 beaches on Port Phillip for having good quality water over the past summer.

License plate operation nabs three drivers
Chelsea cyclist dies in alleged hit and run
AN automatic number plate recognition operation resulted in three arrests on Frankston-Dandenong road on Monday, 25 March. The first arrest made as a result of Operation Kinetic was of a 48-year-old Carrum Downs woman at around 10.30am, who is alleged to have tried to avoid the site by doing a u turn. Carrum Downs police intercepted her vehicle and conducted a breath test, which resulted in a reading of 0.144. She is expected to be charged on summons with drive while disqualified, drink driving and fail to stop on police direction. Her car was impounded for 30 days. Shortly after police intercepted another driver after the number plate recognition system revealed they were driving with a suspended license. It is alleged that the 46-year-old Cranbourne woman gave a false name and address in addition to driving with a suspended license. She is expected to be charged on summons with state false name and address, drive while suspended and fail to display P plates. Her vehicle was also impounded for 30 days. A 50-year-old Frankston man also had his car impounded for a month after allegedly being caught driving with a suspended license.
A woman has died after an alleged hit and run incident in Chelsea involving a cyclist and a ute on 28 March. The 50-year-old Chelsea woman was riding her bike along the Nepean Highway at around 5.40am when she was allegedly struck by a ute. Police allege that the driver of the ute fled the scene. A 28-year-old Parkdale man was arrested in Broadmeadows after his car was located in Seaford a little after 8am. He was charged with dangerous driving causing serious injury and failing to render assistance. Those charges are expected to be upgraded. The Parkdale man appeared in an out of session’s court hearing on 28 March. He was bailed to appear in Melbourne Magistrates’ Court on 1 August.
CFA on scene THE CFA attended the scene of a fire at Barkala Court Frankston at around 9.30pm, 25 March. Police had been at the scene searching for a missing person when they noticed a wall was alight. The CFA was called and the fire was extinguished. Police said the blaze was non-suspicious.
March. The youth is alleged to have taken cars between Dandenong and Safety Beach. They were charged with 31 offences, including two aggravated burglaries, three burglaries, eight offences related to theft of a motor vehicle and theft from a motor vehicle, fail to stop for police, and unlicensed driving. The four allegedly stolen vehicles were recovered.
Bike chase TWO men have been arrested in Frankston North after a youth was chased on his bike and allegedly assaulted in a walkway off Mary Grove, Hastings, earlier this month. A 32-year-old man was charged with assault intentionally causing serious injury. A 40-yearold man was charged with making a false report to police and being an accessory after the fact.
Witnesses wanted POLICE are investigating the assault of two cyclists who were struck on the back of the head by someone riding in a Holden Commodore on Cranbourne - Frankston Road, 19 March. The father and son were riding their bikes near Peninsula Link at around 4.15pm when they were struck by a passenger of the Holden Commodore with an unknown object. The vehicle was seen turning onto McLelland Drive Langwarrin. Any witnesses are encouraged to call Senior Constable Humber at Carrum Downs Police station at 8770 4110.

Candidates all aboard to oppose gas plan Keith Platt email@example.com The Save Westernport group has succeeded in getting most candidates for Flinders in the coming federal election to align themselves against plans for a floating gas terminal at Crib Point. Independent Julia Banks – elected as a Liberal to the seat of Chisholm at the 2016 federal election – says she will table a petition next “to stop this development and to protect the Western Port (Crib Point) site”. In a news release, Ms Banks said plans by power company AGL to process liquified natural gas “will mean the discharge into the sea of vast amounts of chilled chlorinated water - the equivalent of 180 Olympic swimming pools a day”. A 55-kilometre-long pipeline to carry it to Pakenham “would cut through internationally significant wetlands and private properties. This project has the potential to cause air, light, noise and water pollution, present fire hazards and risk marine life and aquaculture”. Three other candidates for Flinders, sitting MP and Ms Banks’s former Liberal colleague, Greg Hunt, Labor’s Joshua Sinclair and independent Susie Beveridge, a former Mornington Peninsula Shire councillor, have also said they are opposed to AGL’s plans. In July last year Mr Hunt said he had “long argued that South Port [sic] is not the place for industrial development and my view hasn’t changed in a decade. This includes the AGL proposal for a floating storage regasification unit at Crib Point” (“Libs ‘united’
against gas plan” The Times 10/7/18). Mr Hunt’s statement came one day short of four months since he was first asked by The Times if he opposed AGL’s proposal, which involves mooring a 300-metre-long liquid to gas processing plant at Crib Point’s number two berth. Labor candidate for Flinders Joshua Sinclair, said he had been “advised” that no decision would be made on AGL until the completion of an environmental effects statement due in Sepetember. “Like my community, I oppose the proposed gas project at Crib Point,” Mr Sinclair said. “Over the past few months I have listened to the concerns of locals and I have worked hard to convey these concerns to the relevant state ministers as well as federal Labor’s shadow minister for the environment.” While pointing out that the Victorian Government was “the decision maker” Mr Sinclair committed to “being a strong voice for my community on this issue while we patiently await the outcome of this rigorous process”. Ms Beveridge, who announced her federal election bid last week, has been quick to emphasise that her sympathies are with the anti-AGL campaigners, citing the council’s role in stopping a bitumen plant “slated for Crib Point” “For me, [the fight to stop AGL] is history repeating. The EES for the channel deepening project in Port Phillip was deeply flawed, and we fought hard to stop works at the Rip, which altered the hydrology of the Heads, our protection against climate change,” she said. While not addressing the issue directly, the Australian Greens candidate
Union leaders out against Hunt The Victorian Trades Hall Council has announced it will specifically target Flinders MP Greg Hunt in the May federal election. Phone callers and door knockers will play on Mr Hunt’s role in the overthrow last year of then Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull that led to Scott Morrison taking over leadership of the Liberal National government. Health Minister Mr Hunt sought to be deputy leader in the failed leadership bid by Home Affairs Minister Peter Dutton. The union umbrella group THC will also target Mr Hunt’s Liberal colleague, Chris Crewther in neighbouring Dunkley. The involvement of Trades Hall comes weeks after left wing lobby group GretUp! Also announced its intention to unseat Mr Hunt, citing his lack of action in dealing with climate change. Mr Hunt denies the claims (“Hunt a GetUp! ‘target’ in federal poll” The News 20/3/19). Flinders is seen as blue-ribbon Liberal territory - held by Mr Hunt since 2001 - and is being also being contested by high profile, former Liberal Julia Banks, former Mornington Peninsula Shire councillor Susie Beveridge, Labor’s Joshua Sinclair (campaign manager for Chris Brayne who won the “safe” Liberal state seat of Nepean for Labor last November) and the Australian Green, Nathan Lesslie. Labor is banking on Liberal voters still being angry over the way Mr Turnbull lost his job. Ms Banks has confirmed to The News that his son, Alex Turnbull, helped setting up some aspects of her campaign for Flinders. Keith Platt

for Flinders, Nathan Lesslie, said that “without the environment, no other life can exist. Therefore, the environment should in my opinion be considered the most precious of all things”.
“If you believe in 98 per cent of climate scientists, we need to take this incredibly seriously and have bi-partisan agreement which offers security to the private sector to then invest in renewable energy.”

100 YEARS AGO THIS WEEK...
Shire to clamp down on overdue rates Compiled by Cameron McCullough THE sum outstanding in the Shire of Frankston and Hastings for arrears of rates totals something like £800. At last Thursday’s Council meeting it was decided to get this amount in without further loss of time. Defaulters are given 14 days in which to pay up, failing which legal proceedings will be instituted. Ratepayers, who through carelessness or oversight have neglected to pay their rates, would do well to communicate with the shire secretary immediately. *** ATTENTION is directed to the advertisement of Mr M. L. Goulding appearing in another column. Mr Goulding, who saw active service with the 58th. Batt. of the A.I.F. has taken over the garage adjoining the Pier Hotel, Frankston, where motor cars may be hired at reasonable rates. The requirements of motorists will also be attended to with promptitude and efficiency. *** MANY admiring glances were directed to the 35 h.p, “Itala” which Mr Bradbury, the manager, installed in the Company’s garage at Frankston this week. The car is a superior class of Continental make. It presents a very handsome appearance, and has the advantage of being able to seat seven persons comfortably besides the driver. *** PROTESTANT Federation. Under the auspices of the Frankston branch a public meeting will be held in the Mechanics’ Institute next Friday evening, when the Rev. Hugh Kelly will speak.
A good musical programme will be submitted, including items by Miss Crome, of Melbourne, and other visiting vocalists. A collection will be made. *** FRANKSTON Police Court. Monday, 31st March. Before Messrs S. Sherlock, (Chairman) and W. J. Oates, J’s.P. Vaccination Case. Francis A. Wilby, charged with failing to have his child vaccinated, was fined 40s., with 6s costs, in default distress. A Good Samaritan in Trouble. Alex. Dawson, for allowing a motorcycle to stand on the roadway without lights, on the night of the 16th March, was fined 10s with 6s 6d costs, in default distress. The evidence of Alfred Owen, cab driver for Mr Stephens, of Carrum, went to show that on the night in question, at about eight o’clock, he was driving his vehicle along the main road in the direction of Frankston. He pulled off on to the side of the road to allow, an approaching motor car to pass, and in so doing ran over, defendant’s motor cycle. When he got down to investigate, he found the machine lying half on the sand and half on the asphalt. He saw no one about. Defendant: Didn’t I run out and try to stop you ? Witness: Not that I know of. Constable Cole, of Chelsea, said he met defendant, after the accident, wheeling the machine along the road. He had no light then. Defendant, in extenuation, said he got off his machine, and left it stand-
ing well off the asphalt, to go to the assistance of a man he saw lying by the roadside, and while he was thus engaged the cab ran over his motorcycle. Constable Cole said he saw a man in defendant’s company who appeared to be injured in some way. They seemed unwilling to discuss the matter and would offer no explanation as to the man’s condition. The Bench in fixing the amount of fine said defendant was liable to a penalty of £20. They accepted his story that he had acted the part of the good Samaratan. Interpleader Case. Catherine Bineham appeared as claimant in an interpleader summons arising out of a seizure made on a warrant of execution issued at the instance of Thomas. and Co., against Thomas Bineham. Mr Utber appeared for the claimant and Mr Chambers represented the judgment creditor. Constable Diaball stated that he executed the warrant and made a seizure of certain property including a cow, piano, carpet and racing sulky. In reply to Mr Utber witness said that the claimant, Mrs Bineham, claimed the property as hers at the time the seizure was made. Claimant, in her evidence, said that the piano and carpet were given to her daughter and herself by witness’s sister, who resided at Warragul. The cow was given to witness by Mr. Southen, and her money paid for the racing sulky. The receipt (produced) was for the vehicle in question, and was issued in her name. Cross-examined by Mr Chambers,
witness stated that she earned money of her own by keeping boarders. Her people also gave her money. Wm. Southan testified to the fact that he gave the cow to claimant. Thomas Bineham, the defendant in the original complaint, said he had no claim on the property in dispute. At the time the sulky was bought by him for his wife, witness was an uncertificated insolvent. The Bench said that on the evidence the claim must be allowed. Mr Utber’s application for costs was refused. *** Heard in the Train THAT Seaford is crying out for “more light.” That Hastings says it wants the same commodity - only more so. That Frankston could do with a few more lamps this winter. That footpaths in Frankston could do with a top dressing of gravel. Miniature lakes are alright in their place. That some of the side walks leading to the railway station are in a bad way after an hour’s rain. That the Military officers who recently inspected the junior cadets at Frankston State School said the boys had the best teeth they had examined. That our soldiers, in embryo, are now prepared to chaw up all before them. That a group of citizens discussing the position the other night agreed that there was a great future ahead of Frankston. That the future is ahead alright - always had been - but only a few are trying to overhaul it. Too many are satisfied with the present.
That in another five years the premier seaside town won’t know itself with its electrified trains and vastly increased population. That the “wise heads” are getting in early and picking up the plums. That building operations are to start shortly in the erection of a substantial brick shop and dwelling. That the enterprising owner has further additions in view. That Frankston intends doing something big to celebrate the declaration of peace. That the public meeting on Wednesday night made a wise selection in its secretaries. That Somerville and Hastings are also organising for their respective centres. That 2600 shares have been allotted in the extension to Somerville cool stores which the directors have decided to carry out. That the matter of providing cool storage at Frankston is being seriously discussed, the enterprise to embrace the manufacture of ice. That the latter project requires plentiful supply of water - but not cold water. That local enterprise too frequently, has to contend with a super abundance of the last named commodity. That the Councils’ quarry proposal is still in the lap of the gods. That members of the Country Roads Board are to be invited to inspect the site and pass verdict on quality of the stone. *** FROM the pages of the Mornington Standard, 5 April 1919

THE MEANING OF EXISTENCE... AND OTHER SHORT STORIES
Scuffy the Tugboat – A Journey into a Heart of Darkness By Stuart McCullough IT’D been a while. As a child, my bedroom had a shelf dedicated to them and they were a ubiquitous presence at the supermarket checkout, before they were bumped to make room for discounted confectionary and equally unhealthy magazines. Last week we had a two-year old guest staying with us who demanded – as two year olds do – that somebody read him a story before bedtime. Like my nephew I too read before bed; only difference being that I do my own reading rather than insist someone do it for me. However, there’s a major difference between bedtime stories for children and for adults. Namely, size. Children books make a point of not outstaying their welcome. Little Golden Books are short, have lots of pictures and words are used with an admirable sense of economy. Adult books, however, are a completely different matter. I tried to read Bruce Catton’s remarkable history of the American Civil War each night before bed and ended falling asleep with the book in my hands before it inevitably crashed down on my face. That’s because it generally takes about five minutes of reading before I start to nod off. Five minutes is perfect if you’re reading a Little Golden Book but, sadly, Bruce never thought to publish in that format. As a result, I’m still unsure as to how it ends. Everyone has a favourite Little Golden Book. Whether it’s ‘The Poky Little Puppy’, ‘Tootle’ or ‘The Little Red Hen’, there’s something for everyone. My own favourite is ‘Scuffy the Tugboat’ and so, when asked to
Frankston Times 2 April 2019
read a story, that was the one I chose. The first thing to note about ‘Scuffy’ is that it was first published in 1946. It’s fair to say that things have changed since then, not least that far fewer people now wear polka dot ties. However, some things remain as
relevant as ever. The first thing that struck me when reading ‘Scuffy’ is that it’s a story of irrepressible rage, fuelled by an insatiable ambition. Scuffy had a perfectly good life in a toy store, but it wasn’t enough. Instead, Scuffy believed he
was destined for ‘bigger things’. At first, we have no idea what’s meant by the term ‘bigger things’. My hope is that ‘bigger things’ means either a record deal or, if not, then a television variety show. But it soon becomes apparent that Scuffy’s unquenchable thirst for fame will see him turn his back on his former life and nearly destroy him. If I feel sorry for anyone in the whole ‘Scuffy’ debacle, it’s the man with polka dot tie who owns the toyshop and his little boy. They’re the real heroes of this sordid tale as they do everything they can to cater to Scuffy’s escalating and diva-like demands. First, they let him go sailing in the bathtub. This, however, isn’t good enough for Scuffy, who demands more. The man in the polka dot tie – living saint that he is – then takes Scuffy to a creek. The scene is picturesque, idyllic even. But despite being given everything he’s ever wanted, Scuffy decides to betray the toy shop owner and makes a break for it. The pleas of the polka dot tie wearing man and his son are ignored as the little red tugboat with the blue smoke stack decides that this is his chance to make a jail break. It’s at this point that the tale turns seriously dark. Indeed, Scuffy’s journey down the river resembles that of Charles Marlow in search of Kurtz until Scuffy is almost destroyed by a cow. It must be noted that very few books feature a bovine-based fatality and the book would have had a very different feel to it had Scuffy snuffed it at that point. As night descends, the little red tugboat with the blue
smokestack has a total freak out. It gets worse from there. Scuffy the Tugboat is really a story about industrialisation. The bigger the river becomes, the bigger the towns and cities surrounding it. Scuffy becomes increasingly alarmed as he descends deep into the belly of the beast of his own personal hell. The contest between humankind and nature reaches its zenith when a storm causes a flood and townsfolk use sandbags to protect themselves from the river’s rising fury. Scuffy, it should be noted, does absolutely nothing to help. Scuffy finally reaches the city and suffers the indignity that it not being noticed at all. His quest for fame, like so many hopefuls before him, has bottomed out in a dirty city as he floats on towards the abyss that is the open ocean. Like so many hard luck stories, it is then that his family stages what I’d call an intervention, as the man with the polka dot tie reaches out from goodness knows where and plucks him from the water. As I finished reading I was shaking, my palms sweaty. Frankly, Scuffy’s journey had been harrowing. Putting down the book, I looked over and saw that my nephew was on the verge of falling asleep. His eyes were struggling to stay open, which I decided to interpret as a compliment. Rather than as a journey into turmoil, he’d seen as a return home to family. Which I guess it is. And as I watched my nephew close his eyes and nod off, I thought, “And this is the life for me.” email@example.com

After siren goal tops off thriller DIVISION TWO
By Brodie Cowburn MPNFL football is underway for 2019 after Rye and Pearcedale kicked off the season with a thriller. The division two season opener saw Rye face off against Pearcedale in difficult conditions at RJ Rowley Reserve on Saturday. Rye got off to a brilliant start in front of their home crowd, skipping away to a two goal lead going into quarter time. The second quarter saw momentum swing Pearcedale’s way, but they could not capitalise. In the windy con-
ditions they kicked 0.5 for the quarter. The Demons put just one behind on the scoreboard in the second quarter, which had Rye 10 points up at half time. As the second half got underway the Demons got back on top. Going into the final quarter, having led all day, they looked comfortable 24 points ahead. The final term saw Pearcedale come alive, running rampant and closing the gap to get within a kick with 90 second to play. With a little over a minute left on the clock, Pearcedale hit the front. They kicked another goal after the siren to add an exclamation point
to a brilliant comeback win. The final score read 7.9 (51) to 8.13 (61). Max Gearon was Pearcedale’s best. The opening weekend of the MPNFL season had two matches scheduled across both senior divisions. The second clash took place on Sunday, with Devon Meadows taking on Karingal. The match would be the debut of superstar Bulls signing Marc Holt, who lined up at full forward. The former Cranbourne superstar was expected to do big things, and he delivered in his debut. Despite more difficult conditions, the match was expected to be high scoring. In order to battle Holt in front
of goal, Devon Meadows superstar Michael Theodoridis would have to kick a bag as well. Things started well for Devon Meadows, who took a 21 point lead into half time. A five goals to none third term proved the difference though, as Karingal ran over the top of their opponents and claimed the victory 10.12 (72) to 12.14 (86). Holt kicked four majors in a successful debut for his new side. Next Saturday Karingal will take on Red Hill in match between two sides expected to contend for the premiership in 2019. Expectations are also high for Langwarrin and Chelsea
who will do battle at Lloyd Park. Crib Point host Rye on Saturday, while Pearcedale hosts Devon Meadows and Somerville hosts Seaford. On Sunday Hastings will kick off their season at home against Tyabb. Off the field Pearcedale were the big winners of the week, securing the signature of former Essendon and St Kilda star Brendon Goddard. He will play for the club in a one off match against Chelsea on 18 May. Pearcedale continue their tend of bringing in big names, last year bringing in Drew Petrie for a one off appearance, and the year before signing Barry Hall.
Titans to thrash it out in opener DIVISION ONE
By Brodie Cowburn DIVISION One football will kick off on Saturday in the MPNFL, with a clash of the titans between Frankston YCW and Sorrento the headline act. The two powerhouses will do battle at John Coburn Oval, with the Stonecats looking to make amends for a 2018 season that ended in unexpected disappointment. YCW were ravaged by injuries last season, and will welcome the chance to start afresh.
Frankston Times 2 April 2019
For Sorrento, they will be looking to bounce back after suffering the most devastating of losses against Pines in last year’s grand final. When the final sinal blew in the final game of the 2018 season, Sorrento were level with Pines. A point after the siren saw the Sharks lose the premiership. Rarely lacking star power, Sorrento have brought in Sam Gibson for season 2019 after he racked up over 100 games for North Melbourne. At Emil Madsen Reserve, Pines will
kick off their premiership defence away from home in a tough clash against Mt Eliza. The Redlegs were impressive last season and fell to Sorrento in the preliminary final. They knocked Frankston YCW out of the finals after a big performance from full forward Jordan Moncrieff. Coach troy Shannon departed in the offseason, but they will still be looking to go one better and make the big dance. Pines have signed Robin Nahas up for the 2019 season to help them in
their quest to go back to back. The small forward plied his trade with Richmond and North Melbourne at AFL level. Dromana will be making their division one debut after a big grand final win last season in the second division. The Tigers will take on Rosebud at Olympic Park, a big road trip for their first battle. Rosebud were poor in 2018, but have a big chance to start anew under the watchful eye of new coach Nick Jewell.
Edithvale-Aspendale kick off their 2019 campaign with a tough task against Mornington, who showed plenty of promise last season and will be looking to make finals this time around. Edi-Asp struggle badly in front of goal last season, which eventually cost them despite performing well in other parts of the ground. At Greg Beck Oval Frankston Bombers will take on Bonbeach, who will be looking to improve on a disappointing 2018.

Late, late show for Langy, Pines SOCCER
By Craig MacKenzie LATE goals and a Mark Pagliarulo master class highlighted last weekend’s round of league games. Langwarrin had to wait until the 88th minute to break through against Box Hill United, goals in the 88th and 90th minutes salvaged a point for Frankston Pines while “Pags” scored four goals and set up one in an impressive Somerville romp. Both Langy and Box Hill had chances to break the deadlock at Lawton Park on Saturday but the decisive moment was engineered by a Damir Stoilovic corner to the near post and a Luke Burgess header. That was Langy’s fourth win of the season and cemented its hold on second spot in NPL2 East as it chases ladder leader Eastern Lions. Langy has been linked with Kingston City’s 20-year-old Mauritian international midfielder Cooper Legrand but it can’t move for the talented youngster until the transfer window opens on Tuesday 14 May. In State 3 Frankston Pines staged a remarkable last-gasp comeback to snatch a point in a nailbiting 2-2 draw with Bayside Argonauts at Monterey Reserve on Saturday. Injury, suspension, illness and a wedding hit Pines’ first team squad hard with Lewis Potter, CJ Hodgson, Cedric Benza, Connor McAndrew, Christian Malgioglio, Josh Maclaren, Voldy Bukishie and David Ofuho all unavailable. There were 10 players in Pines starting line-up making their debuts for the club but six minutes in Bayside’s Sam Langford got clear on the right of the area only to shoot wide. In the 24th minute big David Dainty was given too much time to bring the ball down and on the bounce he volleyed it into the top far corner to open the scoring. A few minutes later Pines keeper Alfonso Cardinale looked slow to react to a long-range shot eventually getting down and parrying but he set up incoming Aidan Taylor who shot low across Cardinale and into the far corner to make it 2-0. In the 38th minute Beaumaris midfielder Lewis Broderick volleyed wide when well placed and Bayside took a well deserved lead into the half-time break. Seven minutes into the second half a Meron Negassi strike was deflected onto the bar then over and four minutes later the contest should have been done and dusted. Pines defender Callum Khiath gifted possession to Danny Dicken who
Fine fightback: Frankston Pines midfielder Nick Simmons (left) and Bayside Argonauts opponent James Hammond clash at Monterey Reserve on Saturday. Picture: John Punshon
quickly set up teammate James Hammond on the left of the Pines area only to watch in dismay as Hammond blasted his shot well over. Former Dandenong Thunder, Berwick City and Langwarrin midfielder Sergio Yanez had come on at half-time and was to have a major influence on this contest. As a 19-year-old Yanez spent a year playing in Chile but partway through last season job commitments forced him to stop playing when at Langy. His close control is excellent as is his ability to quickly change direction but it was his ball striking ability from set pieces that brought Pines back into this contest. In the 64th minute Yanez took a freekick 35 metres from goal and Bayside custodian Lewis Cotsopoulos was at full stretch as he tipped the ball wide. Cotsopoulos was in the thick of the action again in the 72nd minute after Negassi sent Joe O’Connor clear on the left of the area and his firm drive was parried wide by the Argonauts shotstopper. A minute later Bailey Atkinson gave the ball away but Dainty failed to punish the Pines right back. Beaumaris midfielder Dicken had been involved in some verbal stoushes prior to being booked for dissent and a few minutes later he booted the ball away after a decision had gone against Bayside leaving referee Tim Dimitriu with little option but to give Dicken a second yellow card then the mandatory red. Pines didn’t need an invitation to surge forward and wave after wave of attacks were repelled by the Bayside defence. But with just two minutes left of normal time Pines won a free kick about 25 metres from goal. Yanez stepped up and his bludgeoning strike skimmed off a defender and went in off the inside of the far post to give Pines a lifeline.
Sudoku and crossword solutions
In the 90th minute it was the turn of two other Pines substitutes to steal the show. Stefan Soler got the ball wide on the right and his precise low cross in behind the Bayside defence was met by a sliding Cam Bryden whose only touch of the match broke Bayside’s hearts. Earlier on Saturday another State 3 side was in action with Skye United defeating Sandringham 3-1 in a friendly at John Paul College. Former Kingston City and Bayside Argonauts striker Nicholas Miliaresis opened the scoring for Skye and Scottish import Mikey Turner came off the bench to score twice. Wee Turner should have a had a hattrick in the second half but he lost his footing when trying to turn with only the Sandy keeper to beat and he skied a shot shortly after when well placed to score. Skye trio Mark O’Connor, Mo Elhassan and Billy Painting all returned from injury and are available for Saturday’s season opener against Ashburton United. In State 1 South-East news Mornington slumped to consecutive defeats going down 3-0 away to Doveton last weekend. Former Mornington striker Wayne Gordon opened the scoring and secondhalf strikes from Josh Frame and Damien Miskulin sealed Mornington’s fate. In State 2 news Peninsula Strikers went down 2-0 at home to Berwick City last weekend. The opening goal came four minutes from the interval following a corner which Strikers keeper Colin McCormack deflected into his net. The second goal came in the 82nd minute when Berwick substitute Sayed Fatemi was given too much room and he raced clear before finishing well to settle the issue. Berwick keeper Kris McEvoy had a trouble-free afternoon and the winning margin could have been greater for the
visitors who are the only side in the league to win both opening matches. In State 4 South news Seaford United lost 2-1 at home to Rowville Eagles last weekend. Harry McCartney reports that the visitors had sacked their coach the previous week and it was Seaford that went closest early when a first-time volley from Jeremy Schwellinger was only denied by the woodwork. In the 30th minute Rowville’s Denny Bejan broke free into a one-on-one only to be denied by Seaford keeper Anthony Madafferi. One minute later a sliding tackle with studs showing had Luke Murray seeing yellow for the second time in the contest leaving the home side with 10 men for the next hour. In the 41st minute Bejan looked suspiciously offside but was allowed to run onto a through ball and round Madafferi to give Rowville a 1-0 lead. The game opened up in the second half with Rowville’s Daniel Griguruta and Ruben Ichim and Seaford’s Dylan Waugh and Mitch Lander all being denied by the respective goalkeepers. Something had to give and it was Waugh who levelled in the 60th minute with a well-placed sidefoot into the bottom corner to make it 1-1. But a superb free-kick by Michael Gross put the visitors back in front in the 70th minute when he bent the ball around the defensive wall from just outside the area. In the 80th minute Jeremy Schwellinger was forced off with a head injury and having used up its substitutions Seaford was forced to fight out the remainder of the contest with nine men. Madafferi was in superb touch in a best-on-ground display that stopped Rowville from recording a more comfortable victory. Fellow State 4 outfit Baxter went down 7-1 at home to Dandenong South last weekend with Bryce Ingram scoring for Baxter. The local side has now leaked 12 goals in its opening two league matches and is desperate to recapture the fighting spirit that was the hallmark of its FFA Cup performances. The headline news in State 5 South last weekend was a stunning display by Pagliarulo as Somerville Eagles thumped visitor Knox United 7-1. The result catapulted Somerville to the top of the league ladder and despite player-coach Dave Greening still battling injury the local club’s promotion push has gained early momentum. Three goals in the first 15 minutes had Knox United on the ropes. The first came in the 3rd minute

with a bullet-like header from Callum Richardson following a Damian Garcia corner. Great set-up play by Richardson in the 11th minute was rewarded with a classy finish by Pagliarulo and four minutes later a Charlie Conrath cross allowed Bjorn Kutschera to round Knox keeper Siamak Bayatt-Torr to make it 3-0. Knox came back into the contest but two excellent saves by Somerville keeper Francis Beck maintained the margin. However Beck was helpless to stop a firm header from Nic Haddad following an excellent Robert Taylor cross and it was 3-1 at the interval. The second half was all about “Pags” as the big Scot added another three goals to his tally, the first from the penalty spot after Richardson was fouled in the 47th minute. In the 57th minute Pagliarulo’s cross was hammered home by Richardson and “Pags” nailed his hat-trick in the 70th minute when he got onto the end of a Carlo Cardoso cross. “Pags” rounded off the scoreline and finished off Daniel Hodge’s good work in the 81st minute with a left-foot strike into the far corner to complete his haul. In other State 5 matches Rosebud and Tullamarine settled for a 2-2 draw at Olympic Park on Saturday while Aspendale Stingrays lost 2-0 away to Pakenham United. Chris Parry and Beau Sharpe scored for Rosebud while the Stingrays’ best were Pat Diakgeorgiou, Jack Lindsay, Kieran Hughes and Sam Timuska Carr.

Freedman unveils talented two-year-olds By Ben Triandafillou JUST one month after claiming the $1.5 million Group One Blue Diamond Stakes with Lyre, Pinecliffbased trainer Anthony Freedman has unveiled yet another two talented two-year-old’s. Coming off a Mornington jump out on Wednesday 13 March, the Freedman-trained youngsters Chenier and Super Seth, who respectively finished first and second in their heat, have come out and scorched the track at their debuts. Chenier, one of five Godolphin owned two-year-old’s that Freedman trains, was heavily supported on debut at Sandown the following Wednesday 20 March and duly saluted with a dominant five-and-half length win. Super Seth then reinforced their potential with a bullish six length victory at Ballarat on Sunday 24 March. Trainer Anthony Freedman was on hand at Chenier’s debut victory at Sandown and said his colt looks to have very good potential. “He’s come very quickly to hand, he’s only had seven weeks’ work, normally you’d give them another trial (before racing) but he seems to have very good ability and great natural fitness,” Freedman said. “This race came up a bit quick, but

it fitted in well with what we’ve got in mind.” Freedman said Chenier will run at Sandown Hillside on Wednesday 10 April in a $50,000 two-year-old race over 1400 metres before travelling to Sydney for the $500,000 Group 1 Champagne Stakes (1600m) at Rand-
wick, 10 days later. Freedman was also suggesting that the colt could potentially be a Derby candidate in the Spring. “It’s not unrealistic to think that,” he said. “He’s a very, very promising horse so if he keeps going the right way,

and his temperament suggests he will, then he could get to a good level.” Chenier is bred to get over ground, by Medaglia d’Oro, out of Zabeel mare Zydeco, which Freedman also trained. While racing under Sheikh Mohammed’s ‘Darley’ banner, Zydeco won
the 2012 Group 2 Wakeful Stakes. She also achieved minor placings in the Thousand Guineas (1600m) and VRC Oaks (2500m) at Group 1 level that spring. Super Seth’s victory at Ballarat was just as dominant and left Freedman’s racing manager, Brad Taylor, just as excited for the future. “Chenier franked the form on Wednesday pretty impressively, and it’s good to see this guy do it as well,” he said. “He’s still pretty green but it was nice to see him really flatten out and put them away nicely.” The win provided Freedman with his seventh two-year-old winner from his 14 starters this season. It also continued the stables successful run for racehorse owner and breeder, Jonathan Munz. “We’re thankful for Jonathon for providing us with these lovely horses,” Taylor said. “We’ve got a number of nice horses for him and it’s good to get this result for him.”
