Theatre for all THEATREGOERS who are visually impaired will now be able to individually hear audio descriptions while watching selected shows at the Frankston Arts Centre. The first audio described performance will take place this month when Ilbijerri Theatre Company’s Which Way Home hits the stage. Audience assistance receivers are available for loan at no extra charge for those with diminished hearing attending a performance at the FAC. Some shows also have captions on a screen near the stage or Auslan signed translation. “We are delighted to work with Description Victoria who will open up the full experience of attending the theatre to the visually impaired and people with other learning and physical disabilities,” the mayor Cr Colin Hampton said. The mayor said the audio description service is discreet so other theatregoers will not even be aware of its use. “The talented audio describers providing the service sit in the venue’s lighting booth, and provide live commentary during gaps in the dialogue, delivered live via a wireless transmission system that the patron using the service listens to.” The audio description service will be made available again in August, for Red Stitch Theatre’s performance of Jurrasica. See artscentre.frankston.vic.gov.au online or call the FAC Programming Team on 9784 1896 for more information.

‘Trick’ tickets not fine Neil Walker neil@baysidenews.com.au A SPATE of fake parking tickets emailed to residents has Frankston Council warning people not to pay scammers. Fraudulent parking infringement notices have been sent by email to several people over the past few weeks.

The mayor Cr Colin Hampton said council only issues parking tickets in the mail, as a printed ticket on a vehicle’s windscreen or in person by a parking officer on patrol. “Council doesn’t issue infringements via email. Anyone who receives an email which claims to be an infringement from Frankston City Council should treat this very seri-

ously,” Cr Hampton said. The mayor said recipients should not even open any emails purporting to come from council about parking fines. “We also urge anyone who receives a scam email to not click on any link within the email, as it may contain a virus or allow personal devices to be hacked.” Council has alerted Victoria Po-

lice, Consumer Affairs Victoria and the Australian Communications and Media Authority (ACMA) about the parking tickets scam. There is no suggestion Frankston residents’ personal details have been obtained by scammers. Fraudsters can use programs to find email addresses published online on websites.

The mayor said legitimate parking fines will be processed as usual and should be paid by the contested or due date to avoid additional fines. Anyone who has been a victim of the parking fines email scam should report it to Consumer Affairs Victoria at scam watch.gov.au/report-ascam online or by calling 1300 55 81 81.

Colourful show of mental health support A DOCTOR at Frankston Hospital launched the second annual #CrazySocks4Docs day on Friday (1 June). Dr Geoff Toogood started the campaign to encourage doctors, medical students and health professionals worldwide to wear zany and bright socks to support doctors’ mental health. Medical professionals who don crazy socks are encouraged to publish photos using the #CrazySocks4Docs hashtag to show doctors dealing with depression are not alone and should speak up for help. Dr Toogood, a Beaumaris resident, started the campaign last year after his own experiences with mental illness. “The purpose of #CrazySocks4Docs is to raise awareness about mental illness in the medical profession and also to get doctors to start talking about it,” he said. “Having a conversation with your friends, family or colleagues about your mental health is the first step. Doctors need to look after each other so that we can look after everyone else.” Peninsula Health executive director of medical services Dr Tim Williams said doctors’ mental health “is extremely important”. “Peninsula Health is working to ensure our medical staff have access to all the support they need not only to provide world-class care to patients but also to look after their own mental wellbeing.” Support and information about suicide prevention can be obtained at Lifeline on 13 11 14 or the Suicide Call Back Service on 1300 659 467.

Councils united for football team Brodie Cowburn team@baysidenews.com.au THE world game at its highest level in Australia may be coming to the southeast region. Frankston and Mornington Peninsula Shire councils have both thrown their support behind a regional bid to start a professional A-League football team. The bid, codenamed “Team 11”, is one of 15 lodged to gain a license for entry into Australia’s top football league. The bid, launched in June last year, is designed to represent the whole of the south-east Melbourne region, playing games out of a planned $170 million

stadium next to Dandenong Station. Mornington Peninsula Shire mayor Cr Bryan Payne said that the aspiring club, vying for entry into both the ALeague and the W-League for women’s players, would be beneficial to the peninsula. “Mornington Peninsula Shire supports Team 11 and the movement to bring an A-League team to south-east Melbourne. This would bring significant social and economic benefits to not only the peninsula but all of southeast Melbourne,” Cr Payne said. Frankston mayor Cr Colin Hampton said a successful bid would have a widespread positive effect in the region, highlighting the potential chances it could provide to local soccer players.

“Frankston City Council recognises the significant social and economic benefits that an A-League W-League and National Youth League team would bring to south-east Melbourne, and the opportunities for growth and development it would bring to clubs and participants in the region,” Cr Hampton said. The Team 11 bid team is currently evaluating grounds across Frankston and the Mornington Peninsula that would be suitable to host preseason and youth games featuring the expansion club. Frankston and Mornington Peninsula Shire join the councils of Knox, Monash, Baw Baw Shire, Bass Coast Shire, South Gippsland Shire, Latrobe and Wellington Shire in contributing

letters of support to the bid to partner a Memorandum of Understanding signed by Greater Dandenong Council, Casey Council and Cardinia Shire council. The letters were submitted to Football Federation Australia last week as part of the team’s expression of interest for an A-League license. It was one of 15 bids that applied, with that number set to be whittled down by the FFA in the coming weeks. The current plan is for two of these bids to be chosen to enter the league. As part of the consultation process, members of the Team 11 bid have visited representatives from grassroots soccer clubs such as Mornington and Chelsea to garner support. If the bid is chosen, the plan is for the

club to establish a youth setup with a focus on giving opportunities to young players from the south-east Melbourne region. If successful, the club would enter the A-League competition at the beginning of the 2019-2020 season. One of the other bidders for the coveted new A-League team licence is a Belgravia Leisure bid led by company founder Geoff Lord, former chairman of Melbourne Victory. Belgravia Leisure took over dayto-day management of five peninsula sports and leisure centres late last year from Mornington Peninsula Shire council, on a five-year deal with ratepayers set to pay the company more than $5.7 million in management fees.

In the ring and out, sharing life’s lessons Stephen Taylor steve@baysidenews.com.au

The boxer: Ron Smith trains others to be the best they can be. Picture: Gary Sissons

MT ELIZA boxing trainer and fitness coach Ron Smith certainly “carries the reminders/Of ev’ry glove that laid him down …” as the song says. But the 74-year-old is much more than just a former amateur boxing champion: he was also a jockey, ultra-marathon runner, high rise construction site manager, government safety inspector and, more recently, a personal trainer with a strong local following. He is now an author with his autobiography The Boxer on sale at Petersen’s Bookstore, Hastings. Ron and his wife Sharyn run the Centre for Lifelong Health & Fitness and Mt Eliza Boxing Centre, in Kunyung Road. It’s a long way from the start of a life in boxing for the man who can look back on 108 bouts – 18 professional – and thousands of hours training in the gym. “I left school at 13 with a dream of becoming a jockey, got in trouble with the law and discovered boxing at the Police Youth Boys Club,” he said. “Boxing opened the door to a kid from a poor family and taught me about life. “I learned how to protect myself and evade an aggressor and not get hit.” Ron took his lessons seriously and went on to win three Victorian amateur championships and trialled for the 1964 Tokyo Olympics.

He worked in high-rise building construction and became a site foreman and, later, a government safety inspector. Throughout this time he says he “battled alcohol, guilt and poor choices; and struggled to be a good husband, father and family man”. Things came to head when he was told in his mid-30s that, if he didn’t improve his lifestyle, he “probably wouldn’t live to see 40”. That “severe wake-up call” goaded him into action: over the next year he stopped drinking and lost almost 30 kilograms. Then he started running marathons and, not long after that, ultra-marathons. At 57, Ron decided to devote himself to staying healthy and strong and helping others – of all ages – become fit and healthy … and stay that way. “I’d seen men in their 50s with health problems and informally encouraged them to get their lives back on track,” he said, happy to act as a role model. “Everyone can succeed if they’re

prepared to learn about themselves, get out of their comfort zone and spend time in positive environments in which they can thrive. “We can all strive to be our best, regardless of genetics, age or past lifestyle choices. What you put in is what you get out.” A case in point is former featherweight boxing champion Johnny Famechon who won the world title in 1970 but who was tragically hit by a car while out running in 1991. He later suffered a stroke. As a fellow boxing competitor in the 1960s and 1970s Ron admires and respects Famechon whom he trains regularly. “I respect him more now than I did then,” he says. Ron plans to keep on teaching children the art of self-defence and self-respect at the Mt Eliza Boxing Centre so his story, unlike The Boxer book, is not finished. “We’ve had thousands of children come here to learn the ‘noble art’ and I can see it doing them the world of good,” he said. He is confident that regular training and adherence to the discipline, dedication and focus that makes the sport great is good for everyone. “It’s not the boxer that makes the man, but the man that makes the boxer.” n The Boxer is available to buy at Petersen’s Bookstore, 103 High Street, Hastings.

MPs need checking For far too long the federal government failed to act on allegations of serious misconduct and corruption in the banking, superannuation and financial sectors and we now see clearly the results of that. Now they are standing in the way of an anticorruption body using almost the exact same arguments they used to avoid the banking royal commission. Powerful forces must be at work for the Coalition to continue to delay backing such a popular measure, and we have to only use a bit of imagination to see the rotten fruit that an anti-corruption commission would uncover. We only have to look at the corruption caught out by state anti-corruption commissions in local councils (Ipswich, as one example). We would have to be nuts to believe that our federal MPs are squeaky clean, based on their previous behaviour that actually saw the light of day. Just think of an anti-corruption commission with the power to prosecute these people rather than the self-policing government that accepts an “I am sorry”, with absolutely not even a slap on the wrist or forcing them to pay back the funds they have stuck in their pockets (taking their families on vacation at our expense, for example). I mean really, they get enough entitlements (Google “Federal MP entitlements” for a shocking ride). To start with, why do they have to abuse the system? Oh yeah, basically lacking of a moral compass which might be considered corruption. The government was quick to set up an antiunion commission which spent millions and millions trying to uncover something and then had to drop the case due to insufficient evidence of wrong doing. But when it comes to them and the corporate mafia it is hands off. Joe Lenzo, Safety Beach

To the beholder The question of a view is always fascinating. In earlier years we would walk along the Gold Coast beach admiring the wonderful houses and obviously the views.

A friend had a magnificent view of Port Phillip from his on high Rye property, but was most annoyed with one tree blocking some 10 per cent of his view. I asked how often he sat looking at his 90 per cent view: “That’s not the point,” he said. “It’s a feeling, uplifting, cultural even.” I got a taste of this “culture” during my many visits to Manly - hiring a unit with a balcony, the Pacific Ocean, and my two stubbies every evening around 5pm. I don’t know how, but he eventually had that tree removed and, interestingly, sold a year later. Cliff Ellen, Rye

Dead by 2030?

Trap the vermin and spare the birds

It’s heartening to hear that 80 per cent of Australians want action on the climate crisis now. This is greater than the 70 per cent in the 1990s who fell to greed and corporate fossil promises. The trouble is that humans may only have 12 years to extinction – some scientists say three to seven years – unless massive changes occur in our attitudes and behaviour While there are many projects to join to make a difference, the best is to change one’s lifestyle to draw-down mode. That is, refuse fossil fuel products – such as plastic, gas, petrol and shampoo – and stop energy and water waste. Reduce all product use (particularly water to 50 litres a person a day), reuse and recycle your heart out. For the most forceful and fastest action you’ll need to green your vote and your homes. The Coalition and Labor can’t or won’t do anything (example: continued vegetation removals, the death of the Great Barrier Reef, the Coorong and throwing their hands in the air over the Murray Darling River system, our food bowl). Another of their worst inadequacies is their continued push for fossil fuel, the lowering of renewable targets to a 28 per cent reduction – effectively only five per cent – by 2030. This is beyond panic, fighting, scoring points, lies, controversy or stupidity. If we don’t change direction for the better immediately, we are dead. Kaye Mackay, Rye

With winter having arrived with a wet and windy vengeance unwanted mice, rats and other vermin will be taking up residence in our homes garages and out buildings. Often our first response is to lay poisoned baits to kill them. The problem with this method is not only does it kill target vermin it also kills unintended native species and many of our precious and endangered birds that eat the poisoned rodents. This causes debilitating illness and death, reducing bird numbers that are already facing dwindling populations throughout the Mornington Peninsula due to human activity, particularly

habitat loss as a result of urban sprawl. Many of our raptors, such as black shouldered kites, nankeen kestrels, peregrine falcons and wedge-tailed eagles, that eat and naturally control rats and mice are only just clinging on in sufficient numbers to maintain healthy offspring. A safe and cost effective method of rodent control is using traps. Traps humanely and quickly kill target vermin while safely protecting our precious birds and other native species. So if you are out shopping, please look out for our unique bird life and buy traps instead of poison baits. George Russell, Portsea

Waiting for the train

bus, and then the same again on the return trip, by which time it might be dark and feel less safe. Such a process is far more difficult for people who are elderly, disabled, have young children or just people who can’t walk long distance due to a health condition. How much nicer and more convenient it would be to drive to Mornington station with ample parking, take the train to the city and then return to Mornington with car waiting right there at the station. The lack of a train line to Mornington hugely disadvantages local residents. At a time when public transport should be supported to reduce the use of fossil fuels and to reduce congestion on roads, I sincerely hope that a call to restore the train line to Mornington receives strong consideration and action. Janet Turnbull, Mornington

I fully support the idea of bringing the train back to Mornington and the idea of the station being in the Watts and Yuilles roads area (“Bring the train back to Mornington” Letters 22/5/18). It is astounding that the state government could have removed such an important public amenity as a public train line. Maybe the focus was more on roads back in 1981, but the two transport systems are necessary and complement one another. Now, if residents want to go to the city by train they have to struggle to find a car park at Frankston or another station nearby. Alternatively, it is necessary to catch a bus to Frankston station but this involves sometimes a long walk to the bus stop, standing in the cold, wind or rain, or the heat in summer, waiting for a

Drive-by shooting ‘bikies related’ A NEWBORN baby was among the occupants of a Frankston house hit by gunfire early on Thursday morning (31 May). Police said a drive-by shooting was reported just before 5am on Warrain Street and a car at the home was also set on fire. Three adults and a one-week-old baby were in the property when the shots were fired. Police found bullet casings at the scene. No-one was injured. About ten minutes after the driveby shooting, a car was set alight in Carramar Drive about 5 kilometres away. It soon emerged that the shooting was not random and one of the occupants of the targeted Warrain Street house was Finks Motorcycle Club bikies boss Brent James “BJ” Reker. Men wearing Finks bikie gang clothing arrived at the Warrain Street scene after the shooting. Police are investigating whether the second car fire was related to the first car fire and the shooting.

Shocking attack A 16-YEAR-OLD boy was arrested and charged with attempted robbery and recklessly causing injury after allegedly attacked the same 14-year-old youth twice in two days. In the first incident, the 14-year-old victim was walking along Lindrum Road, Frankston on 5 May when he

property suspected of being the proceeds of crime. The meters were allegedly stolen from junior sporting clubs, Salvation Army, churches, Girl Guides, sports grounds and unit blocks in the Frankston, Frankston North, Seaford and Carrum Downs areas. They varied in value from $163 up to $977.

was approached by the 16-year-old who had a knife and demanded cash. He ignored him and walked on but the next day coincidentally met the older teen again on Wangarra Road, Frankston. The 16-year-old was with a couple of mates and gave the 14-year-old, who was with another 14-year-old, an electric shock in the back from a Taser-like device when he refused to hand over $10. The younger boy suffered a welt mark from the attack before the older boy ran off. Frankston crime investigation unit detective Senior Constable Darren Paxton said the two boys were not known to each other. Police later arrested the 16-yearold at a Frankston address and found

knives and the electric shock device allegedly used in the second attempted robbery. He was bailed to appear at a children’s court next month.

Extra charges A SEAFORD man due to face court on Friday 25 May on 25 counts of stealing water meters has had 30 more charges laid against him. The 42-year-old will now face Frankston Magistrates’ Court on 9 July on 55 counts extending from 3 December-13 February. Detective Senior Constable Ashley Eames, of Frankston Crime Investigation Unit, said as well as the water meter thefts, the man faced three charges of obtaining property by deception and three of dealing with

Police want to identify a man after a theft in Frankston on Saturday 28 April. At about 4.45pm, a man went into a Nepean Highway liquor store before allegedly taking two bottles of booze and leaving the store without making any attempt to pay. Police have released a CCTV image, below, of a man whom they believe may be able to help in their inquiries. The man is Pacific Islander in appearance, aged about 25, with a medium build and distinctive tattoos on his neck and arms. He was wearing a black and grey Trigger Brothers hooded jumper, tan coloured pants and a black Oakland Raiders baseball cap.

Alcohol theft Police are seeking to identify a man after a theft in Frankston on Wednesday, 2 May 2018. At about 10.30am, a man at a Nepean Highway liquor store allegedly took a four pack of alcohol and left the store without paying. Police have released a CCTV image, above, of a man. The man is Caucasian in appearance and about 40 years old with a skinny build and distinctive tattoos on his neck. He was wearing a white Fila t-shirt, denim shorts, white shoes and a black baseball cap.

Surviving and thriving with cancer WHEN Somers local Linda Wilson was diagnosed with pancreatic cancer six years ago, she made a decision to live life to the fullest. She has been able to do just that while staying in her local community, thanks to the oncology team at Frankston Hospital. “The five-year survival rate for people with pancreatic cancer is 7%,” explains the 61-yearold mother of three. “Being a nurse and knowing what pancreatic cancer is like I decided from the day I was diagnosed that I wasn’t going to waste a minute of it being miserable.” “I was told my cancer was incurable so I asked the question that you don’t really like to ask – I was told I probably had 6-12 months, if I was lucky.” However just over five years later Linda has beaten the odds, after receiving a number of different treatments at Frankston Hospital. “I’d been on chemotherapy for a while but then the team looking after me felt that particular drug wasn’t working as effectively, so I was prescribed another treatment and now my tumour markers are right down,” explains the grandmother of six. “The treatment is a maintenance program which holds my cancer at bay – it’s still an ongoing fight to keep it that way.” The team at Frankston Hospital is up to the challenge and is doing everything it can to support Linda so she can continue nursing part time and enjoying her favourite past time – fishing in

her kayak. “The oncologist who is looking after me sent my tumour overseas to have it tested to see whether there were any other drugs that could help me or whether any of the clinical trials that are on offer at the moment are suitable for me,” explains Linda. “They have recently found a clinical trial that is suitable for me. However since the treatment I’m on is currently working I don’t need to go on it right now. It is nice to know though that there are still other options available if this drug stops being effective.” Linda agrees that she would not be able to keep working and spend as much time fishing and with her family if she couldn’t get care close to home at Frankston Hospital.

Jobs focus for Indigenous A SERVICE for Indigenous job seekers in the Melbourne south east region was launched this week. Elder Uncle Chris West hosted a welcome to country and smoking ceremony at the Narim Marr Dihambana (Frankston Gathering Place) on Monday (28 May) to launch the Deadly Yakka program. The program is a MatchWorks employment agency two-week course specifically designed for Indigenous people. MatchWorks executive general manager Renae Lowry said the program aims to build a network for job

seekers to find a job they are passionate about. “It covers goal setting and personal development, life skills for work, interview skills, cultural awareness training, presentation advice, workplace expectations and job search skills while also addressing personal barriers to understand what has been holding participants back in their journey to work,” she said. The Deadly Yakka program has previously been rolled out in Bendigo, Sunshine, Bacchus Marsh, Werribee and Warrnambool. Indigenous mentors stay in touch

with job seekers and participants when employed to help with stable employment. Matchworks has offices in Frankston, Pakenham, Mornington, Hastings and Rosebud in the region. See matchworks.com.au online or call 5229 8733 for more details.

Comment on The Pillars

We’re helping businesses grow. jobs.gov.au In 2017, over 400,000 new jobs were created – that’s more than 1100 a day. So if you’re a small to medium business owner who’s wondering about the next step or has changing business needs, there are Government initiatives and incentives to help you hire staff. The Government is offering: • •

Programs to help you hire or train staff Financial incentives up to $10,000 to employ eligible staff

For more information go to jobs.gov.au

A PLAN to oversee public access to The Pillars and identify ways to manage its hordes of visitors while protecting cultural and environmental values is up for public comment. Mornington Peninsula Shire acknowledges that the effect of visitors on the vulnerable site – and its impact on residents – is “still a major issue for council”. The mayor Cr Bryan Payne said given the increasing popularity of the site “we need to protect it from further impact”. “This plan aims to achieve this.” Input for the plan has so far come from DELWP, Parks Victoria, Bunurong Land Council, Victoria Police, VicRoads, Ambulance Victoria, Mt Martha CFA, Mt Martha LSC, Life Saving Victoria and the community. “From feedback we’ve received to date, measures implemented by council have reduced the impacts to local residents,” Cr Payne said. “We encourage the community to continue providing feedback on issues associated with … the site as well as providing comments on the draft plan.” Strategies to control visitors over summer included installing 40kph speed signs; warning signs; parking restrictions and No Stopping signs from November-April and alcohol bans. Bollards were installed along the Esplanade to prevent parking and create room for pedestrians and traffic counts and parking surveys were held at peak times in surrounding streets to gauge traffic impacts. Parking patrols were held three times a day, seven days a week in peak periods and litter patrols increased. Following the public exhibition the feedback will be reviewed and, possibly, incorporated in the plan. Community comment is open until 15 July. Residents can contribute online at mornpen.vic. gov.au/haveyoursay Surveys are also available in hard copy at the shire’s offices in Rosebud, Mornington, Hastings and Somerville.

NO decision has been made by Mornington Peninsula Shire Council on building a boardwalk to link The Pillars with beach access points, and reducing the number of people walking along the Esplanade. Property and strategy manager Yasmin Woods said last week: “At its meeting on 22 May council decided: That it is noted the draft long term management plan makes it clear that council has not, at this stage, considered or made decisions in relation to the boardwalk.” She said actions that have been taken are listed at mornpen.vic.gov.au/thepillars.


Watch out: the whales are coming “Careful observations may permit behaviours and directions of movement to be noted. It can be very difficult, even for experienced observers to be sure about numbers, but an estimate is helpful. Record date, time, numbers, location as well as you can pinpoint – such as 500 meters south east of Cape Schanck direction of travel and behaviours.” He said understanding whale numbers and movements is critical to their management and protection. “But it is a huge challenge, taking decades of piecing together snippets of data, to create a reliable understanding about the lives of these remarkable visitors in our waters. “Humpbacks are most likely passing through our waters on their northerly migration from Antarctica along the eastern Australian coast. Hunted to the edge of extinction during the industrial whaling era, humpback whales have made an impressive comeback, with eastern Australian numbers expected to reach around 33,000 individuals this year. This is quite remarkable when you consider the post whaling population estimate to be only 200 – 400 individuals.” Mr Donnelly said southern right whales – classed as threatened - come to the Two Bays area to mate and give birth. “These animals are from the southeast Australian population with numbers estimated to be between just 250 and 300 individuals with no noticeable increase in population size since whaling ceased.” Penalties apply for deliberately approaching a whale closer than 200m for vessels; 300m for jet skis; 500m height for aircraft (including drones).

THE Hastings-based Dolphin Research Institute has a grand plan to improve and maintain the health of Port Phillip and Western Port bays. This week the DRI launches its “i sea, i care communities” project which, according to the institute’s executive director Jeff Weir “invites the five million of us living around the bays to commit to simple actions that will help to protect our marine treasures”. “If we can get only a fraction of us always picking up after our dog, reducing what we allow to drip, drop or blow into streets which is then flushed into the bay, then we will make a difference,” Mr Weir said. “i sea, i care communities is also about sharing stories about our wonderful bays and great things that many groups in the community are doing. It’s also about supporting the institute’s work through volunteering, citizen science and donating. “We understand that no-one is perfect and the challenges for families and businesses with limited time and budgets. “We will help with ideas and encouragement. By finding small steps that we can all take, together we will build a community that cares enough about bays to change how we live around them.” To get involved go to www.dolphinresearch.org.au and select the “i sea, i care communities” link. Bookings are also open for the cocktail function launch of “i sea, i care communities” and World Oceans Day 6pm Friday 8 June at the Portsea Village Resort at dolphinresearch.org.au or call 5979 7100.

AMATEUR whale spotters are being called on to provide data on the number of whales swimming past the Mornington Peninsula. With the help of these citizen scientists the Two Bays Whale Project was last year able to estimate that 458 individual whales were seen in and around the peninsula and Port Phillip and Western Port bays. The project has been running since 2015 in collaboration between the Hastings-based Dolphin Research Institute and Wildlife Coast Cruises. Experts list the best land-based whale observation points in the Two Bays region as being Barwon Bluff; Port Phillip Heads; Cape Schanck; The Nobbies, Pyramid Rock and Cape Woolamai on Phillip Island; and the Bass Coast. “The 2017 whale season broke all previous records with a total of 218 validated sightings of four whale species between 15 May and 5 December. In total the estimated number of individual whales was 458, which is a whopping 296 more whales than the 2016 season estimate,” project co-founder and curator David Donnelly said. “Whether this is a case of more whales, more people looking or a combination of both is yet to be determined, but one thing’s for sure, whales never fail to attract the attention of the public.” Mr Donnelly said sightings of large whales in the bays and along the open coast “have become so regular in the winter months that it is now more of an expectation rather than a novelty to see a whale at this time of year”. He said whale watchers on high coastal vantage points could expect to see migrating humpback whales with less frequent sightings of southern right and killer whales. “With a good set of binoculars, whale watchers should be looking for the characteristic blow to first pinpoint whales,” Mr Donnelly said.

Greens in blue over planning Stephen Taylor steve@baysidenews.com.au OPPOSITION by the Greens to a parliamentary amendment that would have given the Mornington Peninsula its own planning statement has been described as “so lacking in common sense as to defy belief”. Peninsula Speaks co-founder Christine Haydon was furious after the Greens backed the Labor state government in opposing a Coalition planning and environment amendment which they believe would have given teeth to attempts to overturn an already implemented 11-metre, three-storey height limits. The contentious issue was the subject of several township meetings organised by Mornington Peninsula Shire over the past 12 months held to alert the community to the potential heights of “inappropriate development” in residential areas. Villages and townships said to be under threat include Capel Sound, Rosebud, Dromana, Mt Martha, Mornington, Baxter, Somerville, Tyabb, Hastings and Bittern. The shire wants the government to reinstate the local planning statement which it believes had protected the “unique” character of the peninsula from inappropriate development since the 1970s. Last week’s amendment defeat may have put paid to that. “It was voted down crushing any hope we had of a Localised Planning Statement,” Ms Haydon said. “As the community are aware we all have been working together to prevent three storeys and other changes to the planning laws that were announced in April last year and, to this end, we presented a petition to parliament with about 11,000 signatures. “Last week at a second reading in the Legislative Council, Liberal MP David Davis suggested an amendment to the Planning and Environment Amendment (Distinctive Areas and Landscapes) Bill 2017 that would allow the Mornington Peninsula – along with Macedon Ranges, Yarra Ranges and the Bellarine Peninsula – to have localised planning statements instead of being wrapped into the Victoria Planning Scheme. “Despite all the hard work and effort across the Mornington Peninsula to avoid this disastrous planning situation the Greens, a party for the environment, have chosen to allow the Macedon Ranges only to be included. “It would appear that the Greens have no concern for the Green Wedge and distinctive areas and landscapes on the peninsula.” Ms Haydon said: “They blindsided us. We only had one opportunity and now that’s lost.” Mornington Peninsula Greens candidate Paul Saunders admitted to being at first “shocked” by his party’s stand on the amendment. “It seemed strange to me [but] I spoke with the state office [afterwards] and they said they had sup-

ported the amendment.” Mr Saunders said he was told Greens MPs were “confident that the amendment would not be needed for the localised planning statement to be successful”. In a statement next day, Mr Saunders said the Greens “voted to prevent regional towns and communities from high densification and inappropriate development, such as the height increase to 11-metres in GRZ [General Residential Zone], in some areas”. He said the Greens had asked the minister to prioritise areas “specifically including the Mornington Peninsula”. “The Greens voted down the Liberal amendment to ensure current protection offered by the Local Planning Statement for the Mornington Peninsula is maintained,” he said. “The Greens were assured in Parliament by [Labor MLC for Southern Metropolitan Region and Small Business Minister] Philip Dalidakis that “the localised planning statement will sit above, so it will then inform those processes beneath it, and, obviously it filters down from there”. Mr Saunders said the Greens had “specifically requested the minister [to] recognise the Mornington Peninsula as a distinctive area under the current bill which has bipartisan support”. Mornington Peninsula Greens candidate Paul Saunders admitted to being at first “shocked” by his party’s stand on the amendment. “I’m being straight with you,” he said. “It seemed strange to me [but] I spoke with the state office [afterwards] and they said they had supported the amendment.” Mr Saunders said he was told Greens MPs were “confident that the amendment would not be needed for the localised planning statement to be successful”.

Foragers urged to beware of toxic crop www.baysidenews.com.au Bayside

FRANKSTON and peninsula fungi-foragers are being advised to watch out for poisonous mushrooms springing up after recent rains. Lisa Gray, of Somerville, said she found “loads” of deadly death cap mushrooms in her backyard last week – not long after her pet dog died of a heart attack. “It may be related,” she said on social media. Victoria’s Chief Health Officer Professor

Charles Guest said foragers risked picking up poisonous varieties which may appear similar to edible varieties. The warning comes as winter rains encourage the growth of fungi in the still-warm earth. Two of the most dangerous varieties are death cap fungus and the yellow staining mushroom. “The death cap is extremely toxic and responsible for 90 per cent of all mushroom poisoning

deaths. Death can follow within 48 hours,” Prof Guest said. “Commercially-sold mushrooms are safe, [but] poisonings can occur when those gathering wild mushrooms pick up toxic species by mistake.” Anyone becoming ill after eating mushrooms should seek urgent medical attention and, if possible, take samples of the whole mushroom for identification.

Savings plan makes dollars and sense Stephen Taylor steve@baysidenews.com.au TWO single mums who admit they would normally have trouble putting money aside for important expenses – such as their children’s education – are singing the praises of a savings plan backed by the Brotherhood of St Laurence. Small business woman Keli Wallace, of Mt Eliza, has three children and is saving for their education, and Fiona Castles, of Mt Martha, is saving for her child’s swimming lessons while she studies for a bachelor of social work. The women are among more than 1300 Mornington Peninsula and Frankston residents who have taken advantage of the Brotherhood’s Saver Plus program which aims to encourage, and support, people to save for educational expenses – either for themselves or their children. The program, begun in 2003, was developed in partnership with the ANZ Bank which matches people’s savings dollar-for-dollar up to $500 over 10 months. There are no fees except on withdrawals. Saver Plus coordinator Frankston and Mornington Peninsula Claire Butler said international models had shown that building up savings and assets helps people overcome disadvantage and improve their wellbeing, while also fulfilling their aspirations for a better life. Reportedly the first matched-savings program in Australia, it is now the largest and longest-running of its kind.

Helping hand: Mt Martha resident Fiona Castles has taken advantage of the Brotherhood of St Laurence Saver Plus program. Picture: Yanni

Ms Butler said the RMIT’s Saver Plus: Pathways to Wellbeing report “explored the connection between active savings behaviour and overall financial wellbeing, with the results showing that Saver Plus participants had an average financial wellbeing score of 64 out of 100 following the program, above the national average

of 59”. “Saver Plus recognises that many people need help sorting out their finances,” she said. “The program assists with financial education to help build assets, improve people’s money-managing skills and develop long-lasting savings habits.” More than 36,000 people have joined

the free program since 2003 across 60 communities. Most are women. Ms Wallace, a business owner and mother of three children under five, says she knows the importance of savings. “I’m teaching my kids that if you put away a little every month you can afford things in the future,” she said.

“Plus, ANZ will match our saved amount at the end of 10 months which will really help when purchasing an educational tool, for example, a laptop, now required in primary school.” Ms Castles said two key aspects of the program included developing people’s savings skills and reducing the barriers to children participating in community activities. “If you don’t have the money the children miss out on doing things,” she said. “It is going to increase their opportunities of doing things and give me the skills to save and budget.” Each month from February to December Ms Castles is putting $50 into her account which will be matched by the bank up to $500. During part of that time, while studying for her degree, she will not be able to work and the money will “save the kids from hardship”. “If I want to save more I can but the bank will only match me up to $500, and it has to be spent on the kids or my education.” The balance at the end of the period cannot be withdrawn in cash by the participant but is paid direct to a service provider, such as the swim school. “It’s been great for me. I don’t understand why more people don’t take advantage of it,” Ms Castles said.

Boardwalk opens new views at Point Leo Keith Platt keith@baysidenews.com.au IN the end, it took just one cut with the scissors for the beach at Point Leo to be more accessible to the public. The ribbon cutting by former Disabled Surfers Association Mornington Peninsula president Jenny AnglissGoodall signaled the official opening on Saturday 26 May of a new boardwalk, viewing platform and ramp to the beach. The viewing platform enables sightseers and lifesavers, for the first time, to stand on a level surface to see from one end of the beach to the other. The 82 metre long “boardwalk” is made of fibreglass grating supported on a timber frame and poles. It crosses a gully between two sand dunes and passes through some coastal vegetation before arriving at the viewing platform overlooking the sea and beach. The boardwalk is the result of a project envisioned by the Disabled Surfers Association Mornington Peninsula, the Point Leo Foreshore Committee and the Point Leo Surf Life Saving Club. The project goes back to 2015, when Bill Hallett and John Bowers (now DSAMP president), Andrew Gibson (PLSLSC) and Tony Walkington (PLFSC) decided that a boardwalk would improve access to the beach. In consultation with experienced locals like Phil Trigger, the future path of the boardwalk was set. “The partners had several objectives: to provide better beach access

for all people including an ageing community, mothers with prams and people with a disability, maintaining a less cluttered access to beach for lifesavers and emergency equipment, and to improve safety with a viewing platform with uninterrupted views along the whole beach for the lifesav-

ers,” Mr Bowers said. The DSAMP was formed in 2011. Money was raised, equipment bought and a call made to volunteers to be trained to help out. For the past six years that call has continued to be answered twice a year by hundreds of volunteers who come to Point Leo to

give a surfing experience to an ever growing number of people who want to have fun in the surf. The lifesaving club lets the DSAMP use its clubrooms on surf days and beach tents and food are provided to volunteers and surfers alike. “The advantage of the boardwalk

to DSAMP is the ease of returning surfers to the change facilities in bypassing the steep sand dune from the beach,” Mr Bowers said. “With the opening of the boardwalk, observation deck and access ramp, the DSAMP can keep putting smiles on dials.”

100 YEARS AGO THIS WEEK...

Commemorative trees planned Compiled by Brodie Cowburn A MEETING of the Frankston residents was held on 17th September, 1917, to decide upon a site on which to plant an honor avenue of trees, to commemorate the self–sacrifice and bravery of each true Frankstonite, who heard the call of his country in distress, and who hurried across the seas to stand in the ranks with the men of our dear Motherland, side by side with the just nations of the earth to stop the enemy in their dream of world supremacy. After the most painstaking deliberation and exhaustive discussion of the suitability of the various roads leading into the town, it was decided that only the very best road was worthy of being honored by a memorial to our very best men. The citizens who arrived at this most commendable decision were conscious that the selection of the best site meant the desecration of the resting place of many dead and dying native trees, the loss of the gnarled beauty of the shady ti-tree, the twittering of the early morning birds and the disturbance of the soft carpet of moss, bespangled with dew—all so dear to us in our idle moments of self indulgence. But the same citizens were also conscious that but for the self– sacrifice of our noble boys the twittering of birds might even now give place to the shreiks of our loved ones, and the moss be bespattered with the blood of those who would vainly defend them. As our heroes stand out distinct

from the rest of us, so shall their respective trees stand out, erect in the sunlight, and dressed as on parade; and the tree selected is the best of our own dear eucalypts, whose beautiful and wonderful value, like our boys’ superb courage, is known throughout the world. *** “THE pleasure of suffering for others” was practised by the children of the Frankston school during a self-denial week which ended on the 1st June. The movement was initiated by the Education Department to raise funds for the Australian Red Cross. As the total of the little ones’ pennies for this school was £5 12 4½, a substantial sum should be contributed by the whole State to this most worthy object. *** THE matron and staff of St Pancras private hospital, Frankston, are holding a Red Cross sale at the hospital on Wednesday next, June 12th, in aid of the Red Cross funds. The sale will be opened at 2.30pm by Mrs Jas. Grice. Afternoon tea, for the modest sum of 3d, will be provided. Admission is 3d, and it is to be hoped all who can will attend, and help swell the funds. *** SEE yourself as others see you. The Pageant of Loyalty picture (Frankston Procession) will be shown in the Frankston Mechanics’ Hall at 8pm sharp this evening. Back seats are 2s. and there are a limited number of front forms at 1s.

We advise readers to secure their seats early for a record house is expected. The object is such a worthy one patrons will in a small way reciprocate the great support given to Frankston by the Langwarrin Military Band and Orchestra. *** MR H. Shepherd and family desire to thank their many friends for their expressions of sympathy, floral tributes, etc. in their recent bereavement, especially the Rev. Rymer, Dr Atkinson, and Nurse McCoy. *** UNTIL recently the Frankston “Wattle Club” has been greatly hampered in its work of entertaining our wounded soldiers owing to lack of tables. Thanks to Mr Chas A. Tait of Frankston the table problem has now been solved. Mr Tait went personally to several timber merchants in Melbourne and pointed out to them the good work the “Wattle Club” is doing, and their urgent need for assistance towards obtaining tables. In consequence of Mr Tait’s representation two firms, (Messrs Beauchamp and Anthony) rose to the occasion and supplied Mr Tait with sufficient timber to make the tables required. Mr Tait had the timber sent to Langwarrin Camp where, owing to the courtesy of Major Conder and his staff the timber was speedily converted into serviceable tables and delivered free of cost at the Frankston Mechanics’ Hall

on Saturday morning last. Within a very few minutes of their arrival the new tables were loaded with all kinds of eatables, in readiness for 250 wounded soldiers who arrived that day and were entertained by the “Wattle Club”. *** A PRELIMINARY meeting of shareholders of the Somerville Co-operative Cool Stores Society Limited will be held at the hall, on Monday, 17th June, at 8pm. The business will be to authorise the registration of the society; to elect members of the committee; to adopt rules of the society, and to transact any other business that may arise. *** AN enjoyable dance was held to the Frankston Mechanics’ on Saturday evening last, under the auspices of the “Wattle” Club. There was a good attendance, and the music supplied by Mr Meeking left nothing to be desired. Mr E. C. Ryan acted as M. C. in an efficient manner. ration on this occasion. *** A NUMBER of returned wounded soldiers were entertained by members of the “Wattle” Club on Saturday last. The hall was nicely decorated, and a liberal display of bunting was made in the streets and in front of the hall. A large number of residents assembled to greet the soldiers and a series of pictures were taken by a cinematograph operator while the cars were arriving, and afterwards in the hall. A very liberal supply of eatables

was provided, to which the visitors did full justice. Hearty cheers were given for the Wattle Club, the Volunteer motor corps, and for the soldiers. Songs rendered by Miss Cole and Mrs Aitken were greatly appreciated. *** THE friends of Mr J. Peebles, of Frankston, will be pleased to hear that he is recovering from his rather serious indisposition. We trust he will have a speedy and complete restoration to health. *** THE local branch of the Red Cross Society will hold their annual meeting in the Tyabb Hall on Wednesday evening, 12th, June. The secretary (Mrs Mair) will submit the balance sheet and report, showing a detailed account of the huge amount of work that has been turned out by the ladies and the way the subscribers’ money is spent. The committee desire a large attendance of the public who we trust will give their support by turning up and encouraging the workers in their strenuous efforts. The election of officials will also take place. At the meeting held last Saturday it was decided to hold the next social on Friday, 28th inst. *** MR B R. King, nurseryman of the district, has enlisted for active service abroad, and will go into camp shortly. *** From the pages of the Mornington Standard, 8 June 1918

The number of Australians who are hearing impaired is increasing because of • the Ageing Population –we are living longer • excessive Noise - in the workplace and high level music Hearing loss is often described as the ‘invisible disability’. People often wait for 5-10 years before they seek help. Hearing loss may also be a contributing factor in the speed of onset of dementia. The degree of loss is also correlated to the risk of Alzheimer’s disease. It is important to know about your hearing. Many people ignore the signs of hearing loss, which include turning the TV or stereo up so loud that others complain, frequently needing to ask others to repeat themselves and not being able to hear properly on the telephone. Constant ringing is also another warning sign of hearing loss. As technology advances, many people with hearing loss benefit from hearing aids. These innovations have made a positive difference in the way they can communicate and enjoy their lives.

HEALTHCARE PROFESSIONALS

Social Workers and what they can do for you SOCIAL Workers are an integral member of the interdisciplinary team at St John of God Frankston Rehabilitation Hospital (SJGFRH). They have a vital role to play in supporting patients and their families and/or carers during what can be a very challenging time in a person’s life. There can often be challenges in navigating the healthcare system as well as accessing community services and supports. This is where a Social Worker will provide the information, education and guidance you might be looking for. Taking a holistic approach to intervention, social workers will assist in working through psychological, social and family issues, as well as working with you on your discharge plan helping, guiding and supporting you at these difficult times. Who are the Social Workers and St John of God Frankston Rehabilitation Hospital? Gracie is their Senior Social Worker. With over 30 years’ experience, much of it in the healthcare sector, she brings a wealth of knowledge to her practice having worked in a number of public hospital networks and in private practice. Her special interests are chronic health conditions and counselling. Grace, also an experienced Social Worker in the areas of rehabilitation and discharge planning with families, has particular interest in Parkinson’s disease and dementia. Cherie has been at the hospital the longest and has worked as a Community Care Case Manager for 6 years as well as rehabilitation for 6 years. Her areas of interest are aged care, veteran’s affairs and senior rights and advocacy. All their Social Workers are tertiary qualified professionals with expertise and experience in hospital and rehabilitation work.

THE MEANING OF EXISTENCE... AND OTHER SHORT STORIES

The Barbecue Shape I’m In By Stuart McCullough I’LL admit I watch them; those cooking show where all the contestants have a ‘story’ that involves overcoming incredible odds to defy adversity only to emerge, phoenixlike, from the ashes while wearing a cooking apron and clutching a spatula as though it were the very sword of Damocles itself. These people are presented as so much more than mere contestants on a cooking show. They’re players in life’s great drama, inching ever closer to their manifest destiny one compote at a time. All them are on a journey, even if that journey is simply to dessert. My favourite bit is the heirloom recipe. This is the dish the contestant was taught to make by his grandmother who, inevitably, was a one-legged goat-herder that grew up sheltering under a piece of cardboard with thirty siblings before lifting herself up by the bootstraps she undoubtedly was too poor to own and who shuffled off this mortal coil just moments before the cameras started rolling. These recipes are so much more than food on a plate. They’re a glimpse into the soul of the person who made them. With instructions that were scribbled down on the back of a betting slip while under cannon fire during a Napoleonic war, these are dishes that survived for generations. When a contestant cooks an heirloom recipe, he’s not serving a meal; he’s presenting a legacy. It got me wondering: what’s my heirloom recipe? What’s my legacy

dish that’ll make the judges get a little bit teary and prompt them to say that a long-departed relative would surely be proud of me? The Irish side of my family are better bakers than cooks. So far as I could tell, Irish cooking mostly involved boiling things until the colour was completely vapourised and the original ingredient could only be identified by its dental records. If I’m being honest, my heirloom

recipe isn’t overly fancy. It doesn’t involve me making my own pasta dough using a thimble-full of unicorn tears as the special ingredient or a sponge cake baked during the vernal equinox for optimal fluffiness. For crying out loud, it doesn’t even require me to make my own shortcrust pastry while-- blindfolded and holding a frog in each hand. Not at all. My legacy dish is surprisingly

simple: barbecue shapes with cheese and cabana. I know what you’re thinking. Even though the words ‘that doesn’t sound like a competition dish’ are almost certainly on your lips, at the same time you feel suddenly hungry. That’s because no one can resist the lure of barbecue shapes with cheese and cabana. It was my father’s go-to dish. Every night when he’d arrive home from work, he’d whip up a plate of barbecue shapes, with cheese and cabana and wash it down with a small glass of sherry. This was no mere appetizer. It was the height of sophistication in a family that, broadly speaking, was afraid of heights. I’m surprised when I glance through a menu to not find it. If that sounds absurd, I’ve encountered a range of childhood favourites in a restaurant setting including something that claimed to be a ‘Wagon Wheel’ but ended up being some kind of deconstructed monstrosity. To be fair, it kind of tasted like a Wagon Wheel but it looked like something Picasso might have made. As a kid, I never thought the only thing that’d make a Wagon Wheel taste better was if it’d been baked by a cubist. I’ve seen a ‘Cherry Ripe’ once on a dessert menu but was afraid to order it in case it was Salvador Dali’s shift in the kitchen. Last week, my wife was putting together a plate of barbecue shapes, cheese and cabana. I don’t know if she’s practicing for MasterChef or just being thoughtful but she rang me on the way home to query the recipe.

Specifically, she wanted to know if she should place the cabana on the biscuit, followed the cheese. It’s funny how the small things can pretty much make or break a recipe. What my wife didn’t realize that by proposing to put the cheese on top rather than sandwiched between the other two items, she was casually suggesting the kind of heresy that got Joan of Arc into tonnes of trouble. Patiently, I explained that it was always a matter of placing the cheese on top of the biscuit before adding the cabana. Thinking that was the end of it, I was shocked when my wife suggested that her way would, in all probability, be much better. Doing all I could to remain composed, I politely indicated that putting the cheese on last would result in a hors d’oeuvre with a cheese hat that’d insult everyone. But she insisted. She was sure the folks from MasterChef would agree. It was a big claim coming from someone whose heirloom dish is Chicken Tonight. The weird thing is, I can’t eat barbecue shapes, cheese and cabana without thinking of my family. That may sound absurd, but the very sight of it transports me back to another time. It’s funny how little it takes to evoke such nostalgia. It’s funnier still how little it takes to make me feel quite peckish. As soon as a finish writing this, I think I-- might make myself a snack. A plate of barbecue shapes, cheese and cabana would do the trick quite nicely. I’ll be sticking to the original recipe. stuart@stuartmccullough.com

Sorrento’s narrow escape secures top spot DIVISION ONE

By Brodie Cowburn SORRENTO have maintained their spot on the top of the MPNFL Division One ladder with a thrilling two-point victory over Edithvale-Aspendale on Saturday. The highly anticipated clash between the league’s first and third placed teams took place at Sorrento’s David Macfarlane Reserve, and it was the home side that came rushing out of the gates with a strong first term. Despite looking the stronger team with a two-goal lead at the first break, it took no time at all for Edithvale-Aspendale to work their way back into the contest, thanks in part to their accuracy in front of goal. The game remained close throughout the rest of the day, but it was Sorrento who had their noses in front at the finish line. Sorrento’s Nick Corp put on a match-winning performance for his side, with his four goals helping Sorrento to a 12.14 (86) to 13.6 (84) win. In the round’s other high profile clash, it was second place taking on fourth place as Frankston YCW hosted Mt Eliza at John Coburn Oval. The normally dominant Frankston YCW were reeling from a run of two straight losses and would have been keen to set the record straight and reclaim top position on the ladder with a big win against a strong opponent. After a tight first quarter, the game looked set to be a high scoring and even contest. Each side kicked five goals apiece as Mt Eliza held a narrow lead at the first break. After quarter time, Mt Eliza overran their highly fancied opponents, establishing a 14 point lead at the half-time break. Frankston YCW didn’t let Mt Eliza run away with the game though and remained within touching distance.

Faced with overcoming a seven-point deficit in the final quarter, they were far from down and out. Despite showing signs of fight, the comeback was not meant to be, as Mt Eliza kicked away to secure a comfortable 19-point win to take them to second place on the ladder. Jordan Moncrieff continued his sterling form this season with a best on ground performance for Mt Eliza, kicking two goals and contributing well around the ground. With their next game being against top of the ladder Sorrento, Frankston YCW find themselves staring down

the barrel of four consecutive losses, an unprecedented run for the champion side. A bad loss in that game could see them slip as low as sixth by the end of next round. There will be plenty of work to be done in order to get back into the form that is expected of them, as Frankston YCW were left to lick their wounds after an 11.7 (73) to 13.14 (92) defeat. The most impressive performance of the weekend came from Bonbeach Recreation Reserve, as Pines travelled to take on Bonbeach. Both clubs had suffered from inconsistent seasons so far, and at the first

break it was the home side who held a two-point lead. After quarter time, a fire was lit under Pines, who were simply unstoppable from that point on. Former North Melbourne forward Aaron Edwards has only been back from a knee reconstruction for a little more than a month, but you wouldn’t have thought it by watching his performance on Saturday. Edwards put on one of the best individual games from any player in the history of the league, kicking an astonishing 13 goals to punish a miserable Bonbeach side. Edwards’ massive haul took him to top of the goal kicking leaderboard, and

if he continues this form he will be hard to overtake. What looked a promising contest at the beginning eventually turned into a one-sided display of domination, as Bonbeach fell to Pines 8.6 (54) to 24.13 (157). Elsewhere, another intriguing clash was taking place between Seaford and Mornington, in a game which would see the loser condemned to last place on the ladder. With both teams playing for pride, it was a tough and even contest, with the lead changing hands at numerous points throughout the day. The lead at each break in play stood at less than a goal. In the final quarter Seaford had plenty of opportunities to put the game to bed, but let themselves down by kicking just one goal and five behinds. Capitalising on Seaford’s inaccuracy, Mornington were able to kick three goals straight in the final term to run out as four-point winners, 9.14 (68) to 11.6 (72). It was Mornington’s Lachlan Gorka who kicked the major to put his side in front with a little more than a minute to play, which was enough to secure his team the victory. The win is Mornington’s second in a row, which takes them off the bottom of the ladder, a position now occupied by their Seaford opponents. In the final game of the weekend, Rosebud’s disappointing season went from bad to worse as they were easily dealt with at home by the Frankston Bombers. Despite Rosebud holding a one-point lead at quarter time, Frankston quickly established a comfortable lead which would prove to be insurmountable. Frankston’s Jarrad Grant proved influential in the win, booting six goals to help his side to an 8.10 (58) to 15.12 (102) win.

Dromana’s undefeated run threatened DIVISION TWO

By Brodie Cowburn DROMANA’S undefeated start to the year nearly came undone in a scrappy contest at home, as they were almost overrun by a plucky Langwarrin side in MPNFL Division Two action on Saturday. Dromana, who pumped their opposition by over 100 points last week, started well to take a 13-point lead into quarter-time but were put on the back foot as Langwarrin struck back to cut the deficit to just one goal at the main break. The third quarter was all Dromana, but despite their dominance, they couldn’t punish Langwarrin on the scoreboard, as they only scored two goals and six behinds for the quarter. With a 22-point lead in hand going into the final term, Dromana looked on top, but they hadn’t landed the killer blow yet. Langwarrin battled bravely to keep themselves alive, and were much the better team in the last quarter, kicking three goals to one to cut down the lead. Unfortunately for Langwarrin though, as the final siren blew all they had won was respect, with first place Dromana holding on to win 9.15 (69) to 7.11 (53) to keep their undefeated streak intact. The most entertaining contest of the round came out of RJ Rowley Reserve, as Rye hosted Somerville in a clash between two teams looking to stabilise shaky starts to their seasons. The two evenly matched teams traded the lead back and forth, but it was Rye who eventually established a comfortable advantage, leading by 28 points at the 10-minute mark of the final quarter. Needing to overcome a five-goal deficit with-

out much time to play, Somerville had their backs to the wall but didn’t give up the fight. The away team got one back through Justin Allsopp, before quickly kicking another three goals to reduce the lead to one behind with mere minutes left to play. With the contest hanging in the balance, it was Somerville’s Timothy McGenniss who proved to be the hero, as he kicked his third for the game to put his team ahead, which would be enough for them to secure a miracle comeback win 12.15 (87) to 13.15 (93). Playing at home, Pearcedale were keen to make amends for their 100-point defeat to Dromana last week as they faced Red Hill on Saturday. Red Hill though, reeling from their one-point loss to Karingal last week, wanted it more than their opponents, and were absolutely ruthless in heaping more misery on a helpless Pearcedale side. Pearcedale could only manage four goals for the entire afternoon and again were put to the sword in another devastating 100-point defeat. Red Hill’s 12 individual goalkickers tell the story of their comprehensive team performance, with Daniel Allsop named best on ground in the 4.10 (34) to 21.13 (139) win away from home. Red Hill will need to carry this momentum through to their next game, as they are set to take on undefeated Dromana at Red Hill Recreation Reserve next Sunday. Elsewhere, Crib Point were not able to follow up on their first win for the year last week, as they fell to an impressive Chelsea side at Chelsea Reserve on Saturday. Chelsea were impressive right from the start

and went into half-time already ahead by 58 points. Curtis Bywater was among the best for Chelsea, as he kicked three majors to take his tally for the year to 32, just one goal shy of the top of the league’s goalkicking ranks. Mykelti Lefau followed up his impressive five-goal haul from last week with another two goals for his side against Chelsea, but it was little help as Crib Point was comprehensively beaten 16.18 (114) to 4.7 (31). It was also business as usual for secondplaced Karingal, who easily accounted for Tyabb at Bunguyan Reserve. A third quarter which saw Karingal score four goals to Tyabb’s zero proved to be the difference, as the match finished Tyabb 7.6 (48) to Karingal 11.13 (79). Matthew Dimkos was the standout performer for Tyabb, but his five goals were not enough to help his team mount any sort of challenge. At Glover Reserve, the result also went as expected as Devon Meadows took on Hastings at home. Hastings, sitting in fourth place and looking for their third win on the trot following a fourpoint victory against Rye last week, looked set for a challenge during the first quarter. The contest was tough and even, and they went into the first break surprisingly behind by two points. After a slow start, Hastings quickly found another gear and looked much the better team throughout the rest of the day. Led by a four-goal performance from in-form Luke Hewitt, Hastings were able to secure a fairly hassle-free victory 9.10 (64) to 16.16 (112).

Sarwari to Langy, Wieck proves a point SOCCER

By Craig MacKenzie LANGWARRIN coach Gus Macleod says Langy fans have much to look forward to after clinching the signature of attacking midfielder Mehdi Sarwari late last week. The 21-year old previously played with Melbourne City, Dandenong Thunder and Oakleigh Cannons. “He’s a huge signing for us, a very exciting player and I think the fans are going to like what they see,” Macleod said. Langwarrin also received clearances for central defender Lloyd Clothier (Malvern City) and goalkeeper Jeremy Sandoval (South Springvale) and they join Queensland strikers Chris Swain and Matt Heath in a strengthened first team squad. Heath is recovering from osteitis pubis but was able to train freely last week. Clothier and Swain made their senior debuts against Melbourne Victory at Epping Stadium on Sunday as Macleod’s men lost 3-0. A deflected Nicholas Sette strike in the 23rd minute caught Langy keeper Robbie Acs stranded and gave the home side a 1-0 half-time lead. Two minutes into the second half Victory went further ahead thanks to Sette and an injury to Clothier forced him to come off as Langy reshuffled its defensive set-up. Birkan Kirdar outpaced the Langy defence to make it 3-0 in the 61st minute and although the visitors enjoyed their best spell of the game for the next 15 minutes shots from Callum Goulding, Johnny Kuol and Liam Baxter were met by superb saves from Victory keeper Majak Mawith. Langy missed an opportunity to go third in NPL2 East and the defeat adds to the importance of next weekend’s home game against Box Hill United as the local club strives to cement its newfound status in the elite competition. Southern United gained its first point of the NPLW season when it came away from Wembley Park on Saturday with a 1-1 draw against Box Hill United thanks to a second-half goal from Bayside United recruit Sarah Wieck. The result ended a run of 13 consecutive losses but with no relegation from the elite women’s competition Southern will continue with its policy of player development. The club expects to move into its new training base at the multi-million dollar Wedge Road sports develop-

ment in Carrum Downs in coming weeks and hopes to use the planned synthetic pitch for matches next year. Southern’s under-12s won 6-1 with goals from Rhiannon Kelleher (4), Emilia Ingles and Savannah Lapenta, the under-14s won 1-0 with Rhys McKenna getting the winner, the under16s lost 3-0 while the under-19s lost 4-0. In State 1 South-East news Mornington continued its winning run with a 1-0 home victory over Eltham Redbacks on Saturday. A clever Sam Scott chip in the 70th minute beat Eltham keeper Santo Dell’Aquila only to strike the underside of the bar but Keegan Ziada was on hand to head home from pointblank range. The result narrows the gap between third-placed Mornington and league pacesetters Manningham and Richmond who both lost last weekend. Frankston Pines and Peninsula Strikers continue to flirt with relegation and next weekend’s showdown between the State League 2 SouthEast rivals may prove to be a seasondefining fixture. Pines went down 4-0 away to league leader Doveton who led 2-0 at halftime with goals from Delfin Mosibe Esara and Josh Frame and second-half

Sudoku and crossword solutions

goals from Slavisa Saric and Simon Mur sealed Pines’ fate. Strikers lost 1-0 away to Heatherton United on Saturday night, the winner coming from the penalty spot and converted by Michael Gross in the 25th minute. Strikers blew a host of chances and lacked composure up front. To add to their woes they had a great chance to level from the spot in the second half but former Pines keeper Alfonso Cardinale saved Ryan Thompson’s conversion attempt. Skye United made it seven wins in a row and sits on top of State 3 SouthEast after its 3-1 home win against Middle Park last weekend. However, the win was soured when influential captain Marcus Collier was stretchered off in the second half with what looked to be a serious knee injury and the club is waiting on results to determine its severity. Skye went ahead in the 42nd minute when Chris Driver’s free-kick found Daniel Attard at the near post and the striker controlled and turned on his left before finishing with a neat strike. Attard got his second five minutes into the second half when a skilful Caleb Nicholes’ flick sent Mohamad Elhassan clear and his left-foot cross found Attard who buried the chance.

Nicholes got on the scoresheet when he bundled the ball over the line from another Elhassan delivery in the 70th minute and although Tommy Fardoe pulled one back for the visitors a minute later the damage had been done. Harry McCartney reports that Seaford United lost its relegation battle with Dingley Stars 2-1 at Chadwick Reserve on Saturday. Seaford had started well but in the 11th minute the home team broke forward and a hopeful shot from Alpy Camuzcu managed to float over new Seaford keeper Jimmy Zafiriou to open the scoring. In the 24th minute, a long ball over the top was controlled perfectly by Jeremy Schwellinger who then sidestepped a defender and slotted calmly passed Dingley custodian Nick Abougelis to make it 1-1. The decisive moment in this contest came in the 88th minute after Dylan Waugh had missed an open goal and from the resulting counter attack substitute Kerem Akyayla got behind the defensive line and rounded Zafiriou to finish into an open net and seal the win for the Stars. Seaford has signed Luke Murray from Frankston Pines and hopes to have him available for this weekend’s catch-up match away to Brighton.

ROUND 11

An injury-time strike from captain Bosco Abbasmoi kept Sandown Lions on top of the State 4 South ladder but broke the hearts of Baxter fans in a hardfought tussle at Baxter Park on Saturday. Abbasmoi wore the number 4 strip yet the Sandown teamsheet had no number 4 listed and when this was drawn to the attention of referee Aurel Ioana at halftime he went into the away team dressing room to resolve the issue. He had little choice given that Abbasmoi had given Sandown the lead at the interval with a low strike from the right of the area after Baxter failed to clear in the 22nd minute. But Baxter scored twice early in the second half to charge to a 2-1 lead. Stuart McKenzie levelled in the 49th minute with a low shot from inside the area and when Sandown keeper Liam Chitters could only parry Ben Meiklem’s strike from the right in the 53rd minute big Dan Disseldorp had a tap-in. However, Baxter’s lead only lasted two minutes. Former Skye United player Wumjock Jock played a quick ball forward to Sandown striker Roy Ruea who skilfully chested it down then tapped it past advancing Baxter keeper James Foster to make it 2-2. By now Baxter fans were in full voice and the nearby linesman who had doubled as referee of the reserves match was given a variety of options on how to better use 180 minutes of his life. Then just when it seemed that the home team would hang on for a meritorious point Abbasmoi struck again to settle the matter. Somerville Eagles regained their winning touch when downing Drouin Dragons 4-2 in West Gippsland on Saturday and player-coach Dave Greening now has his side one point off league leader Old Mentonians. Somerville already has five more points than it accrued during the entire 2017 season as it zeroes in on promotion from State 5 South. Strikes from Greening (2), Louis Griffiths and an Ash Scholes header proved decisive. Next weekend is a State League catchup round and there are two local NPL games and two State League games: SATURDAY 3pm: Langwarrin v Box Hill Utd (Lawton Park), Peninsula Strikers v Frankston Pines (Centenary Park), Brighton v Seaford Utd (Dendy Park). SUNDAY 3.15pm: Southern Utd v Heidelberg Utd (Monterey Reserve, U12s 9am, U14s 10.15am, U16s 11.40am, U19s 1.15pm).

Kaoullas triumphs in state title tilt By Ben Triandafillou MORNINGTON Peninsula boxer Adam “Golden Greek” Kaoullas has claimed the Victorian State Welterweight title in emphatic fashion defeating Dillon Bargero at the Malvern Town Hall on Saturday 19 May. Kaoullas previously faced Bargero in November last year, where Bargero didn’t give in without putting up a fight, and it was no different the second time around. Bargero pulled himself off the canvas in both the second and third rounds as Kaoullas tried to make the ring his own. After going the entire eight rounds, Kaoullas was eventually named victor by unanimous decision and carded winning rounds in seven of the eight contested. Kaoullas praised the way Bargero kept lifting himself back up and continually putting up a fight. “He was moving quite badly but he just stayed in there,” he said. “It’s a credit to him. He got off the canvas and just kept going.” In a packed arena, Kaoullas said “all I could see when I looked up was gold” as more than 80 fans donned his gear in support of the “Golden Greek”. Kaoullas said the crowd’s support was massive and helped push him to the “next level”. “No matter how hard you train, if you don’t control your nerves it can tire you out,” he said. “Through the fight, I actually got quite tired, but that roar from the crowd helped me push thought it and get the win.” On the way out of the ring, Kaoullas was congratulated by another Australian boxer being none other than the multiple world champion, Danny Green. “It was a huge compliment to be congratulated by someone who has achieved so much,” Kaoullas said. Kaoullas is now hoping to have a national title of his own in the near future but said in the meantime he would defend his new state title and eventually build-up to his next goal.

Past champs set bar high PAST Peninsula Surfriders Club champions Calum Nicholson and Mikey Barber set the performance bars high at the Peninsula Surfriders second aggregate competition on Saturday 26 May. A breaching Southern Wright whale signified the start of the competition which returned to Gunnamatta’s first carpark, as Cal Nicolson took a narrow lead over his competitors early in the senior men’s division. His competitors weren’t able to reel him in, but the back-to-back heats took their toll on Nicholson in the Open final as he settled for fourth. An energised Mikey Barber took out first place, while Sean McDevitt and Lachy McDonald filled second and third placings, respectively. Adam Morris, the 2017 club champion, also

struck it hot early-on as he claimed the days highest heat total of 17 including 10 points out of a possible 20 in the opening round. Unfortunately for Morris, he wasn’t able to repeat the performance later in the day and was eliminated in the quarter-finals. The growing Women’s, Junior Girls and Cadet Boys divisions all relished the user-friendly waves and stand-out performances from Hannah Trigger, Brooke Fischer and Will Watson saw them take the respective victories. The club now enters its winter-break with a recommencement in early October. PSC Supergroms will also restart in October. Further details can be found at psc.org.au online.

Gulls secure second spot, Steelers end losing streak BASKETBALL THE Chelsea Gulls have secured their second spot on the ladder with a 17-point victory over third-placed Keysborough Cougars in round 10 of the Big V. The Gulls’ “big three” players, Corey Standerfer, Mitchell Riggs (19 points) and Matt Brasser (15 points) pushed hard to bring up the sides fourth straight victory (91-77) as they pass the half-way point of the season. The star import Standerfer made a huge difference in the clash as he dropped 35 points, 15 rebounds, six assists and three blocks throughout the game. Kieran Mcqueen also hit the board as he bought up his 150th match with a last-second jump shot on the buzzer. It was a mixed emotions match for Mcqueen as his father passed away earlier in the week. Chelsea Gulls’ head coach Peter Caspersz said it was great to see the side continue their winning streak and an even better feeling to see Mcqueen finish the match on a high. “It was nice to get the win for him and to help him through this time,” he said. “Everybody’s energy and input in the match was massive and, without being too confident, hopefully we can keep it going next week.” Western Port Steelers didn’t have the same luck in their matches on the weekend against Melbourne University and the Keysborough Cougars as they suffered a double blow and moved down to fifth on the ladder. The Steelers suffered an upset

loss to the Black Angels (66-74) at home, even though Dylan Travis put in another solid performance with 29 points. They folded again on the Sunday to the Keysborough Cougars (93-81) as they were handed a 12-point loss. In the Women’s state championship division, the Southern Peninsula Sharks came back hard after trailing by as much as 17 points at one stage against the Hume City Broncos. But, the Broncos just managed to withstand the heat and claimed a twopoint victory (74-72) at home. Jaz Shelley (27 points) and Peyton Little (20 points) did as much as they could for the away team. In a change of fortune, the women’s Western Port Steelers claimed their first win for the season after 10-straight losses in division one. The Steelers grasped their opportunity against 10th placed Warrandyte Venom and didn’t let go. The first three quarters were a tussle for the lead but in desperate need for their first win, the Steelers fought hard and finished off with a 23 to 15 final quarter. The Steelers walked away with a three-point victory over the Venom (58-61). Chelsea Gulls, who are still suffering from injuries, faced Hawthorn Magic on the Saturday night and suffered their third straight loss (4769) in the women’s division one. The Magic took the lead from the very start and although putting up a challenge in the third, the Gulls couldn’t make up any ground. The Gulls still hold onto their fifth placing but will face the league leaders Casey Cava-

liers in round 11. In the men’s division two, the Southern Peninsula Saints thrived with the return of Colin Voss to the line-up as they once again sat at the winners table. The Sharks came back with vengeance after suffering a 53-point blowout to the Craigieburn Eagles the week prior, and set up a 15-point victory over the Wallan Panthers (81-66). The Panthers put the pressure on the home side in the opening quarter and snuck away with a three-point lead out of the first break, but by the time the main break came around the Panthers were behind and never recovered. The Sharks pushed their lead out to 21 points in the third but the Panthers bought it back a touch by the end of the game. The Sharks then tried to go on with the job on the Sunday against the Camberwell Dragons but they fell just short as the Dragons snuck away with a four-point win (82-78). Voss was intently covered by the Dragons to try and stop him from repeating Saturday night’s effort which left the Sharks’ Corey Bond open to have a field day as he racked up 25 points for the side. In the women’s division two, the Mornington Breakers had an 18-point loss to the Wallan Panthers, despite outscoring their opponents 20-14 in the final quarter. A second-quarter freeze by the Breakers was enough to give the Panthers the breathing space they needed to collect a win on the road. For the Breakers, Erin Ludwick collected 15 points to lead all on the night, as Fiona Darnell amassed 13 points and 14 boards for a solid double.

Waves score back-to-back wins NETBALL PENINSULA Waves have bought up their third victory for the VNL Championship season in round six against Boroondara Express on Wednesday 30 May. The championship and division one sides walked away with six and seven goal victories respectively, and made it back-to-back victories after taking out the bayside clash the week prior against the Southern Saints. Peninsula Waves championship coach Jess Whitfort said it was “fantastic to put together two in a row” and named vice-captain, Adrienne Harris, as a stand-out player from the championship match. “She really set an example from the start to the finish,” she said. “She always presented herself as an option and did a mountain of work throughout the game.” The Waves’ under-19s side (59-44) had a 15-goal loss to Boroondara and after a slow start; Whitfort said “it was just too late to comeback”. The Southern Saints weren’t as fortunate in their round six matches as they suffered defeats in all three of their divisions to reigning premiers, North East Blaze. The Southern Saints championship side suffered the biggest blow with a 29-goal defeat (33-62) while the division one (51-69) and under-19s sides (46-57) went down by 18 and 11 goals, respectively. The Southern Saints and Peninsula Waves sides will have a quick back-up for round seven which kicks off on Sunday 3 June. The Southern Saints faced the Geelong Cougars, while the Waves faced the City West Falcons.
