Painting from memory

AN artist has completed a mural at the Glass Cube gallery in the Frankston Arts Centre. Peninsula-based artist Morano is displaying his work, titled Urban Capsules, until 23 March. “The body of work I have been doing lately is a juxtaposition of memories of urban landscapes and the people who live there. My process is always very impulsive and a lot of it comes from the unconscious,” Morano said. “For me, in my practice, showing the process is one of the most important things. Being exposed, vulnerable and being myself.” The Barcelona-born artist is also displaying other artwork of his in the This town, My quarter exhibition at the Frankston Arts Centre’s Curved Wall Gallery until 30 April.

Bus replacements scheduled again Brodie Cowburn brodie@baysidenews.com.au FRANKSTON train line commuters are facing two months of bus replacements. More level crossing removals have been scheduled on the Frankston train

line. Five level crossings across Edithvale, Chelsea and Bonbeach are expected to be removed by the end of this year. Edithvale, Chelsea, and Bonbeach stations will close for demolition and reconstruction in the middle of the year. Trains will run express through them while works are ongoing.

Sail to your Bellarine & Surf Coast...

From around September, the line will shut down between Mordialloc and Frankston. Bus replacements will be scheduled for commuters for two months. When the line shuts down, work will be undertaken to create rail trenches, build roads, lay new tracks, and extend Thames Promenade to the

Searoad Ferries Sorrento

Nepean Highway. The state government says that work should be finished by the end of 2021, with the three new stations to open in stages throughout the year. Frankston line commuters faced bus replacements throughout a big chunk of 2020 as well. Buses replaced trains between Moorabbin and

Mordialloc stations from 23 May to 20 July. Buses also replaced trains between Mordialloc and Frankston last month while crews upgraded signalling and created the foundations for the new stations.

Indigenous group to celebrate history THE Nairm Marr Djambana group has launched a “Living History” project to tell the life stories of local senior Indigenous people. The project was launched by members of the group on 19 February. The group will choose people to profile

based on their contribution and support to Nairm Marr Djambana. Impact Stories producer and interviewer Sina Summers has been chosen to tell the stories of these community members. A panel of elders will decide which

candidates will go on exhibition when the project concludes in May.

St Kilda plans for Seaford future FRANKSTON Council has given St Kilda Football Club in-principle support for its plans at Belvedere Reserve. St Kilda moved into the Seaford ground in 2010, signing a lease which expired in 2059. Despite that, St Kilda had relocated its training facilities to Moorabbin by 2018. St Kilda FC presented a new proposal for the precinct to council in December. Council has agreed to offer in-principle support to the plan, and will put $2.6 million of ratepayer funding into it. The full proposal for the Belvedere Precinct was designated as confidential by Frankston Council. St Kilda Football Club CEO Matt Finnis said the club was “thrilled that our shared vision to create a health and wellbeing hub which delivers services, training and facilities for the Frankston community has been supported by council.” “We’ve been working closely with Frankston City Council for a long time now to reimagine how this unique facility can be refocused to deliver the greatest benefit to the community,” Mr

Finnis said. “Our club continues to have a deep affinity with the area and we’re excited to be playing a leadership role in bring together a host of like-minded organisations to create a new community asset at a time when it’s never been needed more.” Council CEO Phil Cantillon said “our hope is that as well as being used by community groups, council and the club, the precinct will also be occupied by a tertiary health education provider, as well as health care, aged care and disability professionals and a social enterprise café. We will keep the community updated as sub-tenants are confirmed.” Frankston mayor Kris Bolam said recent discussions between council and St Kilda FC had been “productive”. “A design is due to come back to council for final sign off in August and we expect to be in a position to formalise agreements with the club and other parties, to support the activation, at that time,” he said. Brodie Cowburn

Rail line works to finish early Continued from page 1 Mordialloc MP Tim Richardson said the end result of the interruptions would be “worth it”. “It’s going to be a busy year and I thank residents and traders for their patience during construction – the end result will be worth it, with more safer and direct links between public transport, local shops, parking and the beach,” he said. Carrum MP Sonya Kilkenny said “with level crossings already gone for good in Carrum and Seaford, I’m thrilled that Bonbeach is next, making a real difference for our community.” Work is also underway on a multi-deck car park at Cheltenham Station, which is due to open mid-year. The level crossings at Swanpool Avenue, Chelsea Road and Argyle Avenue in Chelsea were originally pencilled in to be removed by

2025 before work was rescheduled to this year. The state government says that next year work will continue to build new walking and cycling paths as part of more than 11 kilometres of new paths from Edithvale to Frankston.

Jubilee Park works to begin soon WORK on the Jubilee Park redevelopment project has been given the green light to proceed. Frankston Council has approved a town planning permit for the project to move ahead. Work is expected to commence later this year with construction to be completed in late 2023. When complete the redeveloped stadium will feature six multipurpose indoor courts, including a 1000 seat show court. Training facilities, indoor cricket training nets, female-friendly change rooms, and a creche will also be added. Council is spending more than $20 million of ratepayer’s money on the $35 million project. The state government has allocated $10 million to it and the federal government has provided just over $4.5 million. Frankston District Netball Association president Corinna Harvey said “the FDNA Board and our 3500 participants are extremely excited to see this development come to life. The existing stadium has been outgrown by the participation growth of netball in the region.” “The new indoor multi sports stadium will encourage greater diversity for participation from all backgrounds, ages and abilities to our new facility. We have long established relationships with our Jubilee Park sporting precinct partners and look forward to working with all sporting codes in the new stadium.” To accommodate works, 60 mature trees will be removed. Council has committed to replanting 300 trees, 100 of them larger semi-mature trees, Frankston mayor Kris Bolam said the redevelopment is estimated to create nearly 180 new jobs. “It is estimated that the construction phase alone will increase economic activity and contribute around $40 million in the local economy,” he said.

Motorcycle crash

Bicycle stolen

A MOTORCYCLE driver was left seriously injured after a crash in Chelsea Heights last month. Emergency services attended the corner of Edithvale Road and Egret Drive just after 8pm on 19 February to assist. A black Suzuki motorcycle had collided with a vehicle. The motorcycle driver was taken to hospital by paramedics. The driver of the car involved with the collision was uninjured, and remained at the scene. Moorabbin Highway Patrol is now seeking witnesses and dashcam footage to help with their investigation into the crash. Anyone who believes they can assist can contact Crime Stoppers.

POLICE are searching for two people in relation to the theft of a brand new bicycle on Christmas Day last year. Detectives have been told that a mountain bike was stolen from a Seaford home in the evening on 25 December. CCTV images have been released of two women that police wish to speak to about the theft. They were seen with the bike shortly after it went missing. If anyone recognises the people pictured below or has any information, they can contact Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000, or make a report online at crimestoppersvic.com.au and quote the incident number 200469446.

Factory blaze extinguished A FIRE broke out at a Carrum Downs factory last week. Emergency services attended the raging blaze on Concord Crescent just after 11pm on 25 February. Teams from multiple fire stations worked together to fight the fire. A statement on the Carrum Downs Fire Brigade Facebook page read “quick work by the crews prevented the fire from spreading to the adjoining factories, with an aerial appliance from FRV Fire Station 25 Oakleigh

utilised to attack the fire from above.” They were joined by crews from FRV stations 91 Frankston and 90 Patterson River. “With multiple crews in breathing apparatus, the specialist breathing apparatus unit from Bayswater Fire Brigade-CFA, was responded to assist with supplying fresh air for the breathing apparatus. Another specialist appliance carrying rehabilitation gear from Somerville Fire Brigade, was responded and assisted Am-

bulance Victoria crews with health monitoring and rehab. “Additional crews from Skye Fire Brigade (CFA), Mt Eliza Fire Brigade, Noble Park Fire Station, Keysborough Fire Brigade and Edithvale Fire Brigade (CFA) were brought in to support with additional breathing apparatus operators to help with overhauling the fire scene.” Victoria Police and the Environment Protection Authority Victoria personnel also attended.

Ex-PM makes inaugural address JULIA Gillard was the keynote speaker at the inaugural Louisa Dunkley Oration last week. Louisa Dunkley, after whom the federal electorate of Dunkley is named, was a champion for equal pay in the late 1800s. “All those who care deeply about creating a better and more equitable world stand on the shoulders of giants like Louisa Dunkley, the trailblazers who marked out the path for us.” Ms Gillard said. “We are well positioned to have a real debate about the kind of leadership we want for the future.” Dunkley MP Peta Murphy said “we are fortunate to have our electorate named after a woman who fought for principles of fairness, equality and community.” “Who better to deliver the inaugural Louisa Dunkley Oration in Frankston than Australia’s first female Prime Minister Julia Gillard,” Ms Murphy said. “I’m proud to host this event and give locals the opportunity to hear from inspiring people from across our great country. “Thank you to Project O Representatives and Monterey Secondary College students CeenaJasmin and Bethany and Frankston High School’s Michaela Goggin for their outstanding contributions to the night.” The event was held online with hundreds of virtual attendees. Ms Murphy said she plans for the event to be held every year.

Suggestions to prevent council corruption A REVIEW into Kingston Council planning applications involving people implicated in the corruption scandal which brought down Casey Council has been completed. The probity review, completed by Holding Redlich, was presented to Kingston councillors on Monday. A summary prepared by Kingston Council officers read that “no evidence of improper conduct was found and thirteen recommendations were made to improve practices that were identified during the review.” The report cost ratepayers nearly $250,000, excluding officer time. The summary prepared by council officers read that the “report is privileged and confidential communication between Kingston City Council and Holding Redlich for the purpose of providing legal advice”. A copy has been provided to the offices of the state’s peak anti-corruption body IBAC, and the Victorian Ombudsman. Among the suggestions provided to council within the report were to maintain a register of councillor meetings with lobbyists, develop or review a political donation policy, document all meetings with external parties and lobbyists with “contemporaneous” file notes, develop adequate mechanisms for officers and councillors to report

suspected misconduct, and to adopt a policy on election campaign return forms. The probity review was ordered in response to corruption allegations at Casey Council. IBAC had heard allegations that developer John Woodman had financial ties to Casey councillors. Casey Council was sacked in response to the scandal. Kingston mayor Steve Staikos said “we took a proactive approach and looked into any planning applications involving people who were part of the Casey investigation plus a number of other contentious items.” “I’m pleased to report that the review found no evidence of improper conduct. We take these issues very seriously and wanted to ensure our community had full confidence in local planning processes.” More than 20 planning matters were set to be investigated as part of Kingston Council’s review, including applications for Waterways, 44 First Avenue, Peninsula Kingswood Golf Club, the Pompei’s Landing precinct, dwellings on Woods Avenue, Chicquita Park, the second stage of the Bay Trail, and the Alex Fraser Group (“Scope of planning probe widens”, The Times, 10/6/20).

Over twenty new jobs have been created in the supermarket to cope with the additional customers due to the closure last year of the other Woolworths store in the Hub, which was part of the shopping centre’s major redevelopment plans. Amongst the convenient new features, customers can expect an extensive fresh fruit and vegetable section, with certified organic products, as well as a range of fresh fish and seafood and a new look continental style deli. The renewed store now also features new self-scanning checkouts and the added convenience of a store-to-boot service for those customers who order their groceries online. Woolworths Karingal Hub store manager Cam Smith said “We’re pleased to be able to offer a convenient, refreshed store for our local customers that makes grocery shopping easy for everyone and we look forward to showcasing our new look store to local shoppers. Understanding what the local community needs is important to us, so to make collecting groceries that much easier, we are offering designated Pick-Up Drive-Thru bays whereby a team member will bring out the grocery order directly to the car”. The new look store now offers a full production bakery featuring artisan bread loaves and a new range of premium stone-baked breads and made to order cakes for any special occasion, as well as freshly baked flat bread, perfect for burritos, wraps or pizza bases. The store also supports local suppliers like Pure Peninsula Honey, based in Moorooduc. Pure Peninsula’s apiarist John Winkels has been producing honey for the past 30 years and a range of their honey can be found in all Woolworths stores across the Mornington Peninsula. The new look store trades 7am to 10pm seven days and is located at the post office end of the Karingal Hub shopping centre, 330 Cranbourne Rd, Frankston.

100 YEARS AGO THIS WEEK...

Union allowed to use park for picnic Compiled by Cameron McCullough SOME time ago the Mornington Shire Council refused the use of the local park for picnic purposes to the Sheet Metal Workers’ Union on account of objectionable features at the last two picnics. At the last meeting of the council, the union secretary, Mr. De Gruchy, attended as a deputation, and succeeded in having the embargo lifted. The party has been visiting Mornington since 1885, and the trouble has been caused by a minority, which always will be found wherever a crowd assembles. The union has guaranteed to deal with any of its members who indulge in acts of rowdyism and vandalism. *** “THE Herald”, on Saturday night, boomed Mr. Charlie Milburn, the well-known athlete, as likely to take Jack Donaldson’s place as Victoria’s fastest sprint runner. Mr. Milburn is well known in the Frankston district, and competed unsuccessfully at the last New Year’s Day Sports. He is a Tasmanian by birth, and is undoubtedly one of the fastest of present day sprinters. He is only 22 years of age. Mr. Milburn and Mr. Will Twomey, the speedy Collingwood ‘toeballer, were school mates at St. Monica’s, Heidelberg, and years later they met in the great event at Stawell, when Mr Twomey ran into second place. But Mr. Milburn has won several events since that time. *** SNAKES, apparently, are very plenti-

ful about the local streets lately. On Sunday last one invited himself into Mr. Morris’ house in Playne Street, but was, at a later, stage, duly decapitated by Mr. Lyon. Another was killed opposite the Pier Hotel on Sunday night, another on the foreshore, a couple along High Street, whilst Mr George McLeod secured a 3½ ft. one at his place adjoining “The Standard” office. A few weeks ago one was killed at Mr Walters’ bakery. *** THE schedule for the Somerville Show is now in the course of printing at “The Standard” office, and will be available in a few days, when copies may be secured from the secretary, Mr. S.S. Gault, or at “The Standard” office. The Somerville Show promises to be one of the best events of the year; and the fruit display is likely to be especially attractive. The present indications are that the Fruitgrowers’ Association will surpass all its previous records. The horse events are also likely to be well contested. *** THE State Rivers and Water Supply Commission has made arrangements to levy rates on those now receiving the benefits of the Mornington Peninsula scheme and has fixed the rates at 2/- in the £ at Mornington, and 1/6 in the £ for Frankston and Carrum. These are the prices originally agreed to, and although the cost of material has materially increased in the meantime, the Commission has decided to carry on without any

increase in the amounts previously estimated. *** AT the Dromana Police Court last week, William Weston, aged 24 years, employed on the Bittern Red Hill railways, was sentenced to three months’ imprisonment for attempted criminal assault of a girl, 18 years of age, between Shoreham and Bittern. Weston was arrested at Daylesford by Detective Kingston, and has three prior convictions against him. *** IN a recent cricket match against Mornington, the Hastings XI., who are the champions of the Peninsula won by six wickets and 18 runs. Mornington, batting first, notched 60, the Armstrong of the side being Cr. Griffith, who made 28. Nipper Floyd (3 for 20), Perriam (3 for 12), and Captain Reid (3 for 6) secured the best averages. The latter scored 33 not out, and Hughie Carmichael 10 not out. Hastings closing the innings for four for 78. Pompey Francis and sundries made 12 apiece! *** AT the Investiture at Government House on Friday last, Mr. E.T. Draker received the Imperial Service Order, the Governor-General, Lord Forster, making the investiture. Until recently, Mr. Drake, I.S.O , was secretary to the Public Works Department of Victoria. He has a home at Frankston, and some weeks ago was elected first president of the Long Island Progress Association. ***

SEASIDE property at Seaford will be offered at auction on Saturday, 9th March, by Messrs J. W. Styles and Son, in conjunction with Messrs Brody and Mason. *** LADIES are requested to meet at the hall next Thursday evening to decide on a special effort for the Frankston Soldiers Memorial Fund. *** MOTOR businesses at Frankston and Mornington are advertised for sale by tender in this issue by the Peninsula Motor Garage Pty Ltd. Tenders close on 4th March. *** THE annual meeting of the Frankston Mechanics’ Institute has been adjourned till 7th March. *** THE full programme of the Moorooduc Sports, to be held on the 9th March, and organised by the Moorooduc Branch of the V.F.U., appears in our advertising columns. Mr James McLellan is the secretary, and a delightful day’s outing is promised. Patrons are reminded that an early start will be made. *** SHIRE tenders for road works, horses and drays, and firewood are advertised in another column. *** MUNICIPAL cricket teams representing the Shire of Frankston and Hastings and the Shire of Mornington played a friendly game in the local park yesterday, when the locals secured a victory. A detailed report will be given next MONTEREY SECONDARY COLLEGE

issue.

*** THE euchre party and dance held last night in aid of the Alfred Hospital was a great success. Further reference will be made in these columns next week. *** THE monthly meeting of the Frankston Progress Association was held on Tuesday evening last, Mr H. Vicars, (president), presiding. Reference was made to the stray dog nuisance, and it was decided to ask the council to issue metal discs to be fastened to the collars of all registered dogs. Complaint was received relating to the absence of conveniences on the foreshore, and it was decided to ask the council to remedy this defect. Satisfaction was expressed at the action of the council in granting the site near the tennis courts as a bowling green site, Mr S. Lawrey being the only member to voice opposition to the use of the foreshore reserve for the purpose named. *** MONTEREY YESTERDAY a very interesting series of motion pictures were taken of the teachers and scholars at the Frankston State school by the Educational Film Coy., Ltd. These scenes will become part of the big production, “The Education of a Child,” which explains in cinematography the Victorian system from kindergarten to the University. *** FROM the pages of the Frankston and Somerville Standard, 25 February 1921 SECONDARY COLLEGE

Chiropractors encourage movement test THIS month marks ‘March Mobility Month’ and residents of Frankston are being encouraged by their local chiropractors at Wellbeing Natural Health Group to test their movement and safeguard their spinal health. n Lockdown played havoc on Aussie’s spinal health and it’s now time to rectify the damage: A staggering three-quarters (72.2%) of people who had to work from home suffered posture related pain – now chiropractors across the country want to ensure the damage isn’t lasting.1 n Spinal pain significantly impacts mobility and quality of life: Spinal problems have the ability to go beyond physical pain with a third (32.6%) of Aussies living with pain admitting it impacts their mobility and one in five (20.7%) say it caused them anxiety and depression.1 n A simple self-assessment can judge your mobility and safeguard your health: Experts say four straight forward exercises could determine your spinal health and whether you need to seek professional help. This ‘March Mobility Month’, as Australians continue to adapt to the changes of the last year, Dr Adam Sherriff, from Wellbeing Natural Health Group, Langwarrin is urging Frankston locals to assess their spinal health and mobility with a simple four stage test. Dr Sherriff says: “Over the past 12 months, myself and other chiropractors across the country have seen a worrying increase in patients

who are reporting back and neck pain caused by changes in their lifestyle like working from home and not being able to exercise. So, we want to encourage everyone to proactively check their mobility and protect their health and wellbeing.” When a third of the Australian workforce suddenly found themselves

working from home, 40% of people admitted to suffering from back pain, a third from neck pain (39.8%) and shoulder pain (34.4%).1 “Other chiropractors and I are concerned by the high incidence of injury we are seeing in young, otherwise healthy people. We know that physical pain can have

COMFORT for all SEASONS

detrimental impacts on mental health and quality of life, and it is vital that people take action before their pain progresses.” According to research, a third of people living with pain, such as neck and back pain, admit to having reduced movement and mobility (32.6%) which has significant impact

on their quality of life, with one in ten admitting they can’t play with their children (11.5%) and it impacts their intimate relationships (11.8%).1 But mobility issues can go much further than spinal pain and can often indicate an array of significantly more serious health issues. Research shows that those with a sedentary lifestyle and posture related pain double their risk of cardiovascular diseases, diabetes, and obesity, and increase the risks of colon cancer, high blood pressure, osteoporosis, lipid disorders, depression and anxiety.2 “It is due to the increased risk of serious diseases that I am urging Frankston locals to assess their lifestyle and movement capability,” says Dr Adam Sherriff. “Mobility month is the perfect time to give yourself a movement assessment, identify if your body is not as mobile as it could be and seek the guidance of professionals if needed.” As a part of March Mobility Month, Wellbeing Natural Health Group Langwarrin are offering complimentary new patient visits until 31st March 2021.

To help the public assess their mobility, and most importantly safeguard their risk of serious health implications, we have developed four simple tests to try at home. NECK ROTATION

SIT TO STAND • Sit in the middle of your chair. Cross your arms over your chest. • Keeping your back straight and arms across your chest... • Stand straight up and then sit back down. Did you do this easily or was it hard?

• Sitting down, keep your shoulders still and against the chair. • Turn your head all the way to the left as if you were looking over your shoulder. How far around did you get? • Repeat on the right. Was it even? Was it comfortable?

TRUNK SIDE BEND

SINGLE LEG STANCE

• Stand with your feet comfortably apart. • Run a hand down the side of your leg so you side bend without leaning backwards or forwards. • Repeat on the other side. Was it even and was it comfortable to do?

• In a safe environment free of trip hazards, stand upright with feet together and place hands on hips. • Lift one foot off the ground. Do not allow your legs to touch. Time how long you can stand without moving. • Repeat on opposite side. Are you able to stand on each leg for at least 40 seconds? (If under 60 years)

What do my results mean? If you are unable to perform or feel pain with one or more of these tests it indicates that your spine is not functioning correctly, and you should seek further assessment from a Chiropractor.

What does a new patient visit include? • Detailed history taking • Comprehensive full spine and nervous system examination

COMPLIMENTARY NEW PATIENT VISIT for March Mobility.

• Neurological and orthopaedic testing • X- Rays (if clinically indicated)

THE MEANING OF EXISTENCE... AND OTHER SHORT STORIES

Mark Zuckerberg – From Super Geek to Super Villain By Stuart McCullough IT probably seemed like a good idea at the time. What better way to fend off accusations that you have way too much power than by exercising it as capriciously as possible? Like Mr. Burns blocking the sun over Springfield, Facebook decided to make their point as obnoxiously as possible by taking the ‘Pearl Harbour’ approach and disconnecting not only news feeds but anything that stood in its way. If the goal was to make everyone hate Facebook, they succeeded admirably. It’s breathtaking how disconnected from consequence Facebook are. That they were happy to impact not just news organizations but hospitals, government departments, charities and support groups is a pretty spectacular form of skullduggery. Even when they apologized, it came with the kicker that it was really our fault because the term ‘news’ could be interpreted broadly. That is, having made a mistake up there with building the Titanic out of fly wire, they still couldn’t concede they were wrong. This should worry everyone. I’ll admit that Facebook’s cyber-tantrum had little impact on me. I don’t have a Facebook account and get my news from, well, news sources. I have, however, seen the first ten minutes of ‘The Social Network’ so I feel more than qualified to comment on recent events. Better yet, I’ve also seen ‘Star Wars’. I’m not referring to the abominable prequels or the more recent evidence (if it were needed) of the immutable law of diminishing returns. I’m talking about the original Star Wars series in all its bowl haircut glory. In ‘Star Wars’ terms, what Facebook tried to pull off was its ‘fully operational Death Star moment’. I guess that makes Mark Zuckerberg Emperor Palpatine. If there were any lingering doubt as to Mark’s transition to the dark side of the Force, it’s long gone now. Instead of conforming to the laws of the country in which they

operate, companies like Facebook act like Empires or (more specifically) the Empire; blowing up planets, killing Ewoks and throwing Luke Skywalker down a set of stairs. Nasty stuff. We should abandon the idea that companies like Facebook are going to behave the way we expect them to. They won’t. Take tax as an example. In 2019, Google paid almost $100 million in tax in Australia. I know this, because I Googled it. (Touché!) It sounds like a lot until you learn that this amount was paid on $4.8 billion in revenue. The reason they pay so little tax as against their colossal revenue is that they attribute most of it to Singapore. Perhaps they’re confused and think that Singapore is just outside of Moo-

rooduc, but I’m pretty sure that ‘Google Maps’ would clear that up quick smart. Facebook is no different. In 2019, it paid $16.8 million in income tax based on revenue of $167 million. Or, in other words, a hefty ten cents on the dollar. It is, of course, more complicated than that – but it gets worse. The amount of advertising booked exceeded $670 million but most of this isn’t counted towards its tax. That’s because Facebook categorizes itself as a ‘reseller’ of advertising services. I don’t know exactly what this means but I suspect it’s a bit like trying to reduce your tax bill by categorizing yourself as a turnip. It works right up until it doesn’t.

Facebook, Google and other digital giants have been feuding with Governments the world over about the amount of tax they do or, more to the point, don’t pay. That will (eventually) sort itself out. But when Facebook decided to pull the plug in protest against a proposed law that was before Parliament, they went from global mega-corporation to full-on super-villain. While a lot of people have expressed shock, I wasn’t surprised. My only question is: what next? Now that we’re all on the Facebook ‘naughty’ list, it’s hard to know what kind of dastardly action Mark Zuckerberg will take as ‘Project Mayhem’ goes into full swing. It wouldn’t surprise me if Facebook soldered all the shopping trolleys together at the local Woolies before repainting all the parking bays so no one can open their car door. It’s inevitable that they’ll campaign to kick us out of the Eurovision Song Contest because Australia is not in Europe (they know something about geography when it suits them). Perhaps they’ll set up one of their signature ‘fake news’ pages that claims that the Pavlova was invented in New Zealand and not Australia. Having reached the bottom of the barrel, it’s clear that Facebook are determined to keep digging. There is no depth to which they won’t sink. Don’t get me wrong - Facebook has achieved plenty: it broke democracy for starters. But Mark has well and truly jumped the shark this time. The next time we see him, I wouldn’t be surprised if he was wearing a turtleneck and stroking a hairless cat. That’s once he gets back from his weekend playing ‘Pokemon Go’ with Kim Jong Un, of course. Mark, when you read this, take a long hard look at yourself. Unfriend yourself on Facebook if needs be. And then come back to the world where paying for things like content and tax are highly valued. If and when you’re willing to do those things, then consider this my ‘friend’ request. stuart@stuartmccullough.com

Pines, Carrum, Carrum Downs and Old Peninsula finish top of their tables By Brodie Cowburn

PENINSULA

PINES have closed out an undefeated season with a win over Heatherhill. After being sent in to bat first, Pines put 168 runs on the scoreboard. Pines had multiple players make good starts, but none of them could go on to make big scores. Jack PeaceStirling top scored with 38. Heatherhill’s run chase got off to a shaky start. The top order fell without making an impact, and at 4/43 the side was in big trouble. Middle order batsmen Brett Maxwell and Jake Theobald got things back on track, both recording scores in the forties. The game went down to the final over, but Heatherhill ended up falling just short. They lost their final wicket for 164, five runs short of a win. Below top-of-the-table Pines are Long Island, who only lost one match this season. Flinders and Somerville round out the top four. Main Ridge finished the season last on the ladder, just below Seaford Tigers. Both sides only recorded two wins each this campaign. The Tigers recorded their most impressive win for the season in the last round against Somerville. Chasing a formidable 223 to win, the Tigers’ batsmen were in excellent form. Opener David James was the star, hitting an unbeaten century to earn his side a stunning nine wicket win. James smashed six sixes during his brilliant innings.

DISTRICT

CARRUM have finished on top of the District ladder, despite losing their final game of the season to Hastings. Carrum opener Shaun Foster set his side up well to close out the year with a win. He scored 103 runs to help his side to a final total of 182. Hastings proved up to the task though, managing to wrap up a four wicket win to close out their year. Dromana can count themselves unlucky, only finishing behind Carrum on percentage. Rosebud and Delacombe Park fin-

ished third and fourth respectively. Just two wins separated fourth place from first place this season. Pearcedale finished bottom of the ladder after recording just one win all season.

Goulding rejoined Langy under Scott Miller for the 2019 season and while there was much angst over his initial departure this time he went with the club’s blessing. “Callum has always expressed his desire to test himself at NPL1 level and the opportunity has presented itself at Bentleigh Greens,” was Miller’s matter-of-fact response. “He has been a big part of what we have built over the last few years so naturally it’s disappointing to lose a player of his quality, however we will work hard continuing to develop the current squad for the season ahead in a positive way.” The match focus last weekend was on the first main round of the 2021 FFA Cup particularly the State 4 South derby between Seaford United and Baxter at North Seaford Reserve. And what a controversial contest this turned out to be with Seaford’s Matthias Schwellinger stretchered off, Baxter’s Charlie O’Connell sent off and confusion over the Cup rules regarding substitutes. Late in the match referee Martin Kowalczyk, Seaford gaffer Peter Schwellinger and his Baxter counterpart George Hughes were seen deep in conversation on the far touchline. By then Baxter was 2-0 down, a man down and had used the only three substitutes on its bench so when Harper Bennell trudged off it was forced to see out the match with nine men. It didn’t make any difference to the scoreline as the depleted Baxter lineup wasn’t a match for Seaford in the final analysis. Two Dylan Waugh goals proved the difference and his partnership with Blake Hicks was a constant problem for Baxter and one it failed to solve. But while Seaford progressed in the

Cup it paid a very heavy price. Schwellinger suffered a broken leg in two places, Jack Carter has a suspected broken ankle and was waiting on x-ray results, Mitch Lander had to be replaced due to a hamstring injury and Adam Martin has a badly swollen ankle after a heavy challenge. Five minutes of mayhem in the first half summed up this contest. Baxter attacking midfielder Nat Daher was forced off injured in the 31st minute and replaced by Bennell. Two minutes later Schwellinger and O’Connell challenged for the ball. O’Connell was late and left Schwellinger crumpled on the pitch and screaming in agony. Referee Kowalczyk consulted his assistant then surprised many observers by only issuing a yellow card to O’Connell. A further two minutes in and Lander collapsed on the right wing clutching his hamstring. Three minutes into the second half Waugh held off Izaak Barr at the near post following a long throw from Hicks on the right. Waugh spun past Barr then struck the ball past Baxter keeper James Foster into the far corner.

Waugh’s second came in the 66th minute after he broke onto a long bouncing ball and hammered his volley past the advancing Foster for the clincher. A minute later O’Connell was scythed down. Instead of setting up for the freekick he grabbed the ball and thumped it over the touchline. He received a second yellow for his petulance and so ended the Baxter resistance. Somerville was the other local club to progress in the Cup thanks to a 2-1 away win over established State 4 West outfit North Melbourne Athletic. Player-coach David Greening’s men had to come from behind but debut goals from Stephen McInerheney and Naseer Mohammad sealed the win. “We handed debuts to eight players in a match that saw us rediscover some of the ‘Somie’ spirit,” Greening said. “That togetherness and willingness to go into battle for each other was as pleasing as the result.” Chelsea bowed out of the Cup with a 4-2 loss to Darebin United in a con-

test switched to Edithvale Recreation Reserve due to ground availability. All four Darebin goals came from set pieces but one of the positives for the local club was the second half debut of 17-year-old junior Arki Gantzos. “Arki’s a great kid and he scored his first senior goal,” Chelsea head coach Carlo Melino said. Piers Beresford scored Chelsea’s other goal and Darebin led 2-1 at half-time. The draw for the second round of the Cup was made yesterday (Monday) and was streamed online on Football Victoria’s Facebook page. Frankston Pines was included in the draw. Next Monday (8 March) Mornington, Peninsula Strikers and Skye United enter the draw. There was a high-scoring result in one of last week’s local friendly matches. Peninsula Strikers beat Somerville Eagles 9-0 at Centenary Park last Tuesday with goals from Riley Anderton (3), Ben Doree (2) Sam Luxford and Abbas Yaqobi. With apologies to Aaran Currie and Danny Brooks there were also two own goals. Langwarrin beat Mornington 1-0 in a friendly at Lawton Park on Saturday. A Sam Orritt goal early in the second half proved the difference. Langwarrin was missing Marcus Holmes, John Maclean and Wayne Wallace but Tom Youngs returned and Isaiah Joseph came off the bench. While boom Mornington recruit Milos Lujic didn’t play both Josh Hine and Josh Heaton had valuable game time.

Mount Martha defeated FC Noble Hurricanes 2-1 at Civic Reserve on Saturday. The home side’s goals came via a cracking 25-metre free kick from Tom Faska and a low drive from the edge of the box by Jett Higgin. Jack Morgan made his Mount Martha debut at right back. The 26-year-old is a former Baxter and Hampton Park player. Other friendly match results: Doveton 2 Peninsula Strikers 1 (Shane Tagliaferro), Skye Utd 0 Mazenod 3, Frankston Pines 1 (Tito Vodowaqa) Mill Park 4 (on Saturday), Rosebud 0 Mill Park 4 (on Friday). In other news NPL and State League fixtures were released recently and Langwarrin plays nine of its first 11 games at home including the opening five rounds of the season. Frankston Pines will play home games under lights at Carrum Downs Recreation Reserve in Wedge Road with 8.30pm kick-offs after Frankston council changed a 10.30pm lights curfew at the venue to 11.30pm. Pines get the league season underway on Friday 19 March when they host Brighton in a State 3 South-East clash. Meanwhile Facebook took down Peninsula Strikers’ page last week and Peninsula Strikers Junior FC’s page. The club could offer no explanation for the sudden and unexpected move other than being caught up in the crossfire of the recent fight between the American-based technology conglomerate and the Australian government. Both pages were reinstated a few days later. This week’s friendlies: THURSDAY: Box Hill Utd v Langwarrin (Wembley Park, 7.30pm), Mount Martha v HMAS Cerberus (Civic Reserve, 6.30pm & 8.30pm) SATURDAY: Mornington v Caroline Springs George Cross (Dallas Brooks Park, 3pm & 5pm), Peninsula Strikers v Keilor Park (Centenary Park, 1pm & 3pm), Falcons 2000 v Skye Utd (Latrobe City Stadium, 1pm & 3pm), Mount Martha v Keysborough (Civic Reserve, 1pm & 3pm).

Tycoon Humma continues unbeaten record HORSE RACING

Perfect record: Tycoon Humma wins the Listed Very Special Kids Plate at Flemington on Saturday 27 February. Picture: Supplied

By Ben Triandafillou JOHN McArdle’s promising filly Tycoon Humma has kept her unbeaten record intact with an impressive win at Flemington on Saturday 27 February. The half-sister to McArdle’s Group Three winning sprinter Humma Humma showed a fine turn of foot to win the Listed Very Special Kids Plate at her second start. Mornington-based trainer John McArdle hinted at sending the exciting two-year-old out to the paddock after beginning her career in perfect style. “She’s a nice filly. She’ll probably be looking for the paddock now. She over-raced a bit today and Jamie (Mott) did a great job and just switched her off. She was a bit untidy out of the gates but he got her to settle as well as he could. She probably wasn’t as electric as what she was first-up but it was a really solid win,” he said post-race. Following the win, McArdle compared the two talented sisters believing that Tycoon Humma might

be showing more promise at the early point of her career. “This filly’s probably a bit better. She’s probably got a little bit more quality to her but if she ends up having a career like Humma (Humma) then we’ll be more than happy,” he said. “This filly’s probably a bit stronger than what Humma was at the same age.” Humma Humma kicked off her preparation later on the card in the Listed Bob Hoysted Handicap (1000m). The five-year-old mare rattled home to finish third beaten a length behind the Tiarnna Robertson-trained Fabergino signalling positive signs ahead for the rest of her preparation. McArdle said the mare will take plenty of improvement from her firstup performance. Continuing the family connection, McArdle purchased the Zoustar halfsister (lot 87) to Tycoon Humma and Humma Humma at the Inglis Premier Sales on Sunday 28 February for $600,000.
