Hospital project gets $6 million for ‘planning’ Brodie Cowburn THE state government budget handed down last week has allocated $6 million in funding towards “planning” for the redevelopment of Frankston Hospital. The Victorian Labor Party promised $562 million towards the project before the state election late last year. The promised funding was for “the redevelopment of Frankston Hospital to

provide new hospital beds, operating theatres, expanded child and maternal health services, a new oncology ward and dedicated mental health services”. Budget papers show $6 million allocated towards “building a world class hospital for Frankston families” with no funding committed beyond the end of the 2019/2020 financial year. Frankston MP Paul Edbrooke assured that there were no concerns around project’s funding, and that it was simply going through “various budgetary stages”.

“There are contingencies that are in the budget, the funding is there. Projects like this go through various budgetary stages, you don’t just put $562 million on the table to be gathering interest. It might not fully come out in the next budget either,” he said. Victorian treasurer Tim Pallas said in question time that he “assures the people of Frankston that the allocations for this project are well and truly contained within the budget papers.” “Contingencies are not a side, they are accountable in the budget. That is

exactly where you will find those allocations,” he said. Mr Edbrooke said that “construction is still expected to start in 2020, it should be late 2020. There’ll be planning done in the next 12 months, and that’ll inform the next budget.” “Because every Victorian should be able to get the care they need when they need it, this year’s budget includes $6 million to begin planning the redevelopment of Frankston Hospital,” he said. “We are delivering on our com-

mitment to create five new dedicated children’s emergency departments. This budget will kick start planning on the dedicated new space at Frankston Hospital, giving local parents peace of mind that their kids will get the calm and compassionate care in the moments that matter most. I’m proud of our investment to give people in Frankston the world class healthcare they deserve, close to home.” Continued Page 5

Code of conduct criticism ‘contravenes’ code of conduct Brodie Cowburn A FRANKSTON councillor says he has been found to have contravened council’s code of conduct for criticising their code of conduct. Council veteran Glenn Aitken penned a piece criticising the current code of conduct for Frankston Council’s May/June edition of the Frankston City News. Councillors usually pen a column for each edition of the newsletter. Cr Aitken’s column appeared blank in this month’s edition, with a short statement claiming that it contravened “Frankston City News Terms of Reference 2017 and the signed Councillor Code of Conduct 2018” in its place. Cr Aitken told The Times it was “very foolish” to remove his article from the newsletter. “I said nothing wrong. I think the part they were upset about were my comments on the code of conduct,” he said. “I was informed that they thought my comments were inappropriate and that I should consider some word changes. In this particular instance there was a column that is orderly, and mannerly, and it was indicated to me that the column would not be there if it was unchanged. I don’t see that I should be put in a position as a public advocate where there’s an opinion I’ve got to change. “There’s no offence or person specifically named or attempt to discredit an organisation. The comments are creative and entertaining, why should they be altered? “When you have a serious message to convey that touches on all levels of

government it should not be silenced. I’m criticising the code of conduct and that’s not deemed as acceptable. Surely you’re at least allowed to discuss the matter.” Cr Aitken’s column said people in all levels of government “often lose touch of reality” and mentions “appalling conduct” at council meetings. In regards to the code of conduct, the column reads that “misused it can become figuratively a wild and fearful forest of wild creatures. A kind of jungle filled with insidious vines.” “It is a really creepy place, put to bad purpose the code of conduct is absolute toxic,” the column said. “It is a document in desperate need of review and reform.” Cr Aitken told The Times that “the issue with the code of conduct is this, first of all anyone can make any claim against you under the sun. They can say they don’t like the way you look at them. It can be as simple as that.” “There is an increasing worrying trend that sees people as guilty and left to desperately try to prove their innocence. This is a very big problem when you’re in local government, when just living day to day life is a highly politicised environment. When you have code of conduct thrown into that environment, it can be an explosive situation,” he said. “If someone makes a claim against you, that can evolve various ways. You may be sat down for discussion, the mayor might say it needs to go further, one matter or another can referred to the local government inspectorate, and the person who has had that complaint made against them is not allowed to speak. They can’t

speak to the press, speak to friends or speak to colleagues, they’re not allowed to have a conversation. You have to remain silent while the process takes place. “This deals with fundamentals of democracy. On one side of matter it stops councillors stop airing dirty linen in public which may be good and may be bad, but it’s very hard to identify who is legit and who is not if you can’t see the forces that flow backwards and forwards.” Mayor Michael O’Reilly provided a short statement when asked why the article contravened the code of con-

duct. “As per the printed statement in the May/June edition of Frankston City News, at time of printing the councillor column provided was deemed to contravene the Frankston City News editorial committee terms of reference 2017 and the signed councillor code of conduct 2018 and was therefore not included the publication,” he said. “When constructing their columns, councillors are to adhere to the terms set out in both documents and I expect that going forward this will be the case.”

Frankston mayor Michael O’Reilly said “the new loos are part of council’s Public Toilet Action Plan, which guides the implementation of safe, accessible and environmentally responsible public toilets for the community.” “The new toilet block adds to the impressive amenities already available in Beauty Park, including public barbecues and rotunda, the playground, fitness equipment, war memorial, lake and viewing platforms,” he said. “Works are also going full steam ahead on rejuvenating the existing walking path which is being constructed using exposed aggregate to make it more suitable for wheelchair users.”

Turning waste into hands for children MAKING prosthetic limbs and hands from plastic bottle tops sounds like an amazing project and is one which Eastbourne Primary School is enthusiastically supporting. Students have set themselves a goal of collecting one million tops which Seaford not-for-profit group Envision will use to make artificial limbs for children in developing countries. Principal Stephen Wilkinson is asking the community to get on board. “It’s easy to collect the plastic bottle caps with the numbers two or four inside,” he said. The impetus for the project came from Saun Teer at Envision. He visited the school to explain how the plastic tops are used to make 3D printed hands for children – instead of going to landfill. “The major difference is our project is using recycled plastic from bottle tops, thus also benefiting the environment,” Mr Teer said. “Bottle caps are fully recyclable yet, unfortunately, as reported on the ABC’s ‘War on Waste’, they aren’t being recycled. They get sent to landfill.” Mr Teer said the often-overlooked waste product was almost entirely made from HDPE 2 – or high density poly-ethylene. “After considerable experimentation we have successfully taken this plastic and extruded it to create functioning filament for 3D printers,” he said. “Once we have the filament we 3D print all the components that make up the hand.” The Eastbourne students have joined Seawinds Community Hub in collecting the tops and are calling on the community to join in and save hundreds, or even thousands, being dumped into landfill. Mr Teer said donations would help buy equipment to continue the process. “Our mission is to create 100 prosthetic hands from bottle caps by using 3D printers, and then to donate the finished hands to children in need.” Top this: Eastbourne Primary School students Alex, Millie and Reagan with Saun Teer, of Envision.

Higher ruling sought for holy hour Keith Platt PENINSULA Aero Club is blaming “a small noisy anti-airport lobby group” for making it observe a “holy hour” ban on flying. The 9.30am-10.30am restriction on Sunday take-offs and landings from the Tyabb airfield has been ignored for more than 40 years. The All Saints Church, which the original flying ban was supposed to protect from noise, ended its Sunday services in the 1970s. But an unholy row lit up two weeks ago when the aero club suddenly withdrew its request for Mornington Peninsula Shire Council to delete the restriction from its permit. The council meeting to discuss the permit variation was scheduled to be held at Hastings to accommodate an expected large crowd, but was hurriedly moved back to the shire’s Rosebud headquarters when the main agenda item was deleted. The shire had appeared set to replacing the holy hour ban with another that stopped the airfield from being used between sunset on Saturdays to 9am on Sundays. Aero club president Jack Vevers said the enforcement of the holy hour meant planes were now “forced to begin flying operations earlier on a Sunday morning” while other aircraft may also have to circle overhead until after 10.30am waiting to land”. He said the club had been acting on legal advice and has made a new application to the Victorian Civil Admin-

istrative Tribunal (VCAT) “to have the matter heard later in the year”. More than 100 objectors to lifting the restriction were planning to front the council, meeting at the more convenient council chambers in Hastings. The aero club has now accused the shire of neglecting its obligations to make sure development around the airfield does not restrict flying activities. “This is the outcome of a few people finding a technical hole in our permit and using it to harass the aero club and coerce council into committing an act



of bureaucratic stupidity when they have the power to simply grant an application,” Mr Vevers said. “The shire agreed the holy hour was obsolete but, after encouraging the aero club to apply to have this condition removed from its permits, in a complete turnaround responded with an ill-considered and unrelated new condition that will damage airport jobs and have an adverse effect on community amenity. “... The shire is actually obligated to protect the airport to ensure it doesn’t

allow inappropriate development or building of homes near the airport. “The shire has neglected those obligations and is now attempting to apply new and unrelated conditions which will adversely affect the viability of the airport.” The mayor Cr David Gill told The News that shire had supported the aero club to the tune of “hundreds of thousands of dollars” towards a landing area for emergency services aircraft and “we’’l also be contributing to widening the runway for safety reasons”.

“They’ve bltatantly ignored the holy hour ban on Sundays, which was a one day a week break from noise, when there are no real restrictions on flying time.” Meanwhile, the shire is awaiting the result of “a full legal review” of planning permits applying to the airfield. The review must be completed by 30 June and include “the opinion of a fully instructed and suitably qualified and experienced in planning matters Queens Counsel with junior”.

Quality care at St Augustine Family Medical Centre Next stage of Alzheimer’s drug trial underway

Our custom-designed treatment room

ST Augustine Family Medical Centre is not your regular practice, since we started October 2015 we have set ourselves apart from the rest with our approach to patient care. We offer an automatic extended first consultation (between 20-30 minutes) for every new patient, allowing the doctor to have the time to obtain the necessary medical history and establish rapport with the patient. All patients over 70 are also allocated a long consultation unless otherwise requested by the GP. Our regular consultation is 15 minutes. Even the clinic set up and design has been arranged with the utmost patient care in mind. Utilising our principal doctor’s over 15 years of experience in surgery in general and orthopaedic surgery in particular, the clinic features an up-to-date two bay treatment room with a quiet cubicle for use as a quiet room for emergency patients, with a hospital grade emergency trolley. In less than 12 months the practice acquired RACGP accreditation and soon after was accredited as a refugee health provider. We continue to offer placements for work experience for students in years 10-12 aspiring for a career in healthcare, and we are currently on a waiting list to be accredited as a teaching GP practice.

Our aim and goals have always been for quality over quantity when it comes to patient care. The practice has special interests in women’s health (we have a women’s health clinic on Fridays), chronic disease management, skin cancer checks, mental health, musculoskeletal conditions, contraception, smoking cessation, obesity and weight management, paediatrics and minor surgery. We have pathology, dietitian, diabetes and asthma education service on site. All the services are bulk billed. We are also open extended hours Monday to Friday from 8am to 8pm, Saturdays 8am to 6pm and Sundays 9am to 5pm, in a bid to take a load off the emergency department of our local hospital, hence playing our part in assisting and lightening the load of the public sector and providing our patients with exceptional services all while not affecting their out of pocket cost. We have the know-how, the skills and the motivation to serve the community. Our team, from our junior receptionists to our clinicians, are very passionate about what we offer, as well as the quality of our services. St Augustine Family Medical Centre is located at shop 18 Langwarrin Plaza (next to Subway), 385 Cranbourne Frankston Rd, Langwarrin. Phone 9775 5474.

PENINSULA Therapeutic and Research Group is part of an international trial testing a drug that aims to slow down cognitive decline in people with Alzheimer’s disease. The trial is recruiting 450 people, aged 60-85 living with mild cognitive impairment or mild Alzheimer’s disease. It aims to demonstrate that the drug, Anavex 2-73, shows benefits for those living with the disease. Dr Jennifer Grunfeld, principal investigator at Peninsula Therapeutic and Research Group, said she became interested in this trial following the promising results seen in an earlier Australian study, which achieved significant cognitive improvement in some participants. For many participants in the previous trial, there was no deterioration in their cognitive function. Some participants regained functions previously lost, such as the ability to paint and play the piano, while a person who re-sat the driving exam successfully regained their licence. The drug is a disease-modifying therapy and this trial will test whether the drug can stabilise

the progression of the disease. The trial is being run by American biopharmaceutical company, Anavex Life Services. If the trial is successful and Anavex 2-73 can modify the course of the disease, it would be a complete game changer in the treatment of Alzheimer’s disease. Dr Jennifer Grunfeld, who has been running clinical trials in mental health and dementia for over 15 years said, “It is exciting to be able to provide patients in and around the Peninsula with access to clinical studies trialing the latest medications.” Peninsula Therapeutic and Research Group are located at 137 Frankston Flinders Road, Frankston and are currently looking for patients with a diagnosis of mild Alzheimer’s Disease to participate in their clinical trials. Patients do not require a referral to be seen at the clinic, there is no cost for consultations and travel costs are reimbursed. If you have any questions or are interested in participating in one of their research trials, please call the research nurse on 03 9770 1579 or email

NEWS DESK Police patrol

with Brodie Cowburn

Man and woman wanted PUBLIC assistance has been requested by police to help identify a man and woman who can assist with inquiries into a theft and deception. Police were told that a victim has their credit card stolen from their Armata Crescent, Frankston North, home on 11 May during an open inspection. The stolen card was used to make purchases at a Seaford supermarket, around 6.20pm. Images (below) has been released of a man and woman who police believe “may be able to assist with their enquiries.” Anyone who has seen or knows the people in the image are encouraged to contact Crime Stoppers. Caught: Police impounded a vehicle after a driver tested positive for meth on Cranbourne-Frankston Road.

Man on meth caught at the wheel A POLICE operation on Cranbourne-Frankston Road, 30 May, saw one motorist caught driving with meth in their system. State Highway patrol members were conducting a number plate recognition operation and intercepted a 41-year-old Mt Eliza man who was driving with a disqualified license. The man was given a roadside drug test and tested positive for methylamphetamine. He had lost his license due to a previous drug driving offence. The man had his vehicle impounded for 30 days at a cost of $1042.00. He will receive a summons to attend court at a later date. Highway Patrol Sergeant Matthew Nott said “we make no apologies for taking people’s cars when they make the conscious decision to drive when they don’t have a licence. This is not a game, and people need to learn no licence means no driving, it’s as simple as that.” “Please drive, ride and walk safely, especially in poor weather conditions,” he said.

Fault causes fire CFA attended the scene of a blaze in Frankston 20 minutes after midnight on 26 May. A blaze broke out at a Seaford Road home after a powerboard failed. Police said an “electrical explosion” occurred and the occupant of the home suffered minor burns to their hands and face. CFA extinguished the fire with minimal damage caused to the house. It was ruled nonsuspicious.

Keep careful on road A DRIVER who failed to give way has caused another car to smash into a light pole in Langwarrin, 20 May. At around 7pm a car on Cranbourne/Frankston Road failed to give way and hit another. No injuries were recorded. Frankston and Somerville highway patrol attended the scene.

BMW stolen from house A BLUE 2012 BMW was stolen from a Tucker Boulevard, Carrum Downs, property at around 7.20 am 29 May. Police said they have observed CCTV footage of a man exiting a Gold Nissan X-Trail and stealing the vehicle from the driveway. The man was the passenger of the Nissan. Any information to Crime Stoppers 1800 333 000.

Mystery liquid deemed safe POLICE, CFA, and ambulance services attended a property at Heritage Drive, Skye, on 26 May after the discovery of a jerry can with an unknown substance in it. The jerry can was located and authorities were called at around 11.30 am. A 70 metre zone was cordoned off and neighbours were evacuated as a precaution. The liquid was eventually deemed safe and removed without incident.

Fish and chip thief on run FRANKSTON crime investigation unit detectives are looking for a man who committed a burglary at a Seaford fish and chip shop a little before 3am on 8 May. Police said the man forced entry into the premises on Nepean Highway, and stole cash from the cash register. He then fled. The man is described as being between 25 and 25 years old, under 5 foot 10, with dark short hair. Police have released a CCTV image in the hope that the public can assist with their investigation.

Troubled water for Pompei’s heritage push Brodie Cowburn THE Victorian Heritage Council’s registrations and reviews committee has rejected a proposal to include Pompei’s Marine Boat Works and Landing in Mordialloc on the state’s heritage register. The decision was handed down on 15 May after a hearing on 27 February. The final determination of the Heritage Council was that the site be considered “not for inclusion in the Victorian Heritage Register but [referred] for consideration for local planning protection.” “After considering the executive director’s recommendation, all submissions and conducting a hearing into the submissions, the Heritage Council has determined (...) Pompei’s Marine Boat Works and Landing at 557-561 Main Road, Mordialloc and nearby lands adjoining Mordialloc Creek is not to be included in the Victorian Heritage Register and refers the recommendation and submissions to Kingston City Council for consideration for an amendment to the Kingston Planning Scheme,” the determination read. Submissions in objection to the recommendation of Heritage Victoria’s executive director were made by a number of representatives, including Kingston Council, the Mordialloc District Historical Society, and Leon Pompei. Mr Pompei is the son of ‘Mr Mordialloc’ Jack Pompei. The boatyard is on crown land which was sold in December 2017 for $2.85 million (“Heritage push for Pompei”,

POMPEI’s Landing in Mordialloc has recently been in consideration for heritage status. Picture: Brodie Cowburn

The News, 12/9/18). The owner of the land made a submission in support of the executive director’s recommendation. A notice of motion was included on the agenda for Kingston Council’s 27 May meeting which read that council “engage a heritage consultant to undertake a peer review and update of Kingston’s heritage overlay with

a view to considering whether there are places or features in Kingston that warrant heritage listing that were not previously identified.” The notice of motion asked that “the industrial heritage consultant who provided council’s submission on the Pompei Boatworks to the February Heritage Council hearing be asked to provide a recommendation to council

in response to the Heritage Council’s recommendation that council consider a local heritage listing” and that “council not approve demolition of the Pompei boatworks until council has made a decision on the Heritage Council recommendation or has approved a development application for the site.” The Heritage Council registrations and reviews committee found that

“Pompei’s Marine Boat Works and Landing at 557-561 Main Street and nearby lands adjoining Mordialloc Creek, Mordialloc does not reach the threshold for state level significance in relation to any of the Heritage Council’s criteria for inclusion in the register.” Both the nominator Mr Craig Cowie, and Kingston Council argued that the site satisfied a number of the set criterias. One of those is that the site has “strong or special association with a particular community or cultural group for social, cultural or spiritual reasons”. The Heritage Council noted in their final determination that “the executive director acknowledged that [Pompei’s Landing] has a direct and strong association with Mordialloc and Victorian boating communities and is regarded by the Mordialloc community as a landmark. However, found that while the place has strong associations with boat building and bayside recreation, the ability to interpret these experiences has diminished due to the changed conditions of the place. Further, the social significance of the place does not resonate beyond these communities.” The final determination read that “Kingston Council submitted that Pompei’s Landing is of social significance because of its association with the cultural history of Mordialloc and wider boating community, and its association with Mr Jack Pompei. Kingston referred to the Save Pompei’s Landing Facebook internet site and the naming of the nearby Pompei Bridge and Pompei’s Boat sculpture as evidence of this.”

So Long Grumpy Cat, I Barely Knew You By Stuart McCullough FAREWELL, Tardar Sauce. Gone to that great scratching post in the sky. I barely got the chance to know you. Although I’m much more a dog person, it’s hard not to be somewhat floored by the sheer awesomeness of your achievements. Very few cats achieve stardom. Fat Cat, Felix, Hector the Safety Cat – you can count famous cats on one hand. But none of them can hold a candle to the legend of Tardar Sauce. My only regret is that most people know you by a stupid nick name rather than the one your owner gave you. Were I to say ‘Tardar Sauce’, I’d be greeted by a shrug of the shoulders. But should I say ‘Grumpy Cat’ everyone will instantly know what I’m talking about. The Internet sensation, Grumpy Cat, is no more. Having passed away peacefully at home, her grumpy countenance will no longer be available for memes, coffee mugs or assorted paraphernalia. It’s over. The impact is incalculable. It’s no secret that cats are one of the major factors behind the success of the Internet and, at this stage, it’s not clear whether the thing can continue without her. No one would have heard of YouTube if not for cat videos. The numbers tell the story. Grumpy Cat has more than eight million followers on Facebook. I don’t know much about social media, but that strikes me as a lot given that Grumpy Cat, presumably, can’t type. Grumpy Cat also has almost two and a half million followers on Instagram and one and half million on Twitter.


Frankston Times

4 June 2019

Which sounds like a lot until you realize that President Trump has around fifty million Twitter followers and, given that the comments of Grumpy Cat and the President are largely interchangeable, seems a touch rough on the cat.

I must say, I’m quite drawn to the phrase, ‘internet celebrity cat’ for a number of reasons. Firstly, I never thought I’d live long enough that those words would ever belong in the same sentence, much less a single phrase. Secondly, the fact that it is a

phrase means that there’s more than one of them. Which is astonishing. ‘Internet celebrity cat’ is now its own subcategory of fame. If there are telltale signs of an impending apocalypse, surely this is one. But Grumpy Cat was not just some cheap celebrity. You could spend tonnes of money on official Grumpy Cat merchandise by shelling out for one of the one thousand and eighty two items available for sale from her website. There are lots of t-shirts and hilarious mugs and, well, that’s about it. There’s only so much you can do with the ‘Grumpy Cat’ brand. It’s not as though you could release the official ‘Grumpy Cat’ set of Ginsu knives without shredding your credibility. That said, there is the ‘Grumpy Cat’ book. While it didn’t trouble the scorers at the Man Booker Prize, I may officially be jealous. The cat emerged in 2012 and quickly became a sensation. The following year, Grumpy Cat appeared at a festival called the ‘South by Southwest Interactive’ in Austin, Texas. Fans waited in line for hours just for the chance to meet her and the cat threw some serious shade over other festival guests including Neil Gaiman and Elon Musk. It was just the beginning. There was a film too. ‘Grumpy Cat’s Worst Christmas Ever’ may not have set the box office alight, or if it did, it was solely an act of coldblooded revenge for people not having gone to see it. Released in 2014, it immediately wandered off into the bushes and hasn’t been seen since. I’m sure it’s for the best.

That’s not the only bump in the road. There have been, as they say in the biz, ‘legal issues’. These arose after ‘Grumpy Cat Limited’ partnered with a beverage firm to produce the ‘Grumppacino’. In case you’re wondering (and how could you not?) the Grumppacino is an iced coffee. However, it was later alleged that a range of other products were produced without permission including Grumpy Cat ground roasted coffee and, naturally enough, Grumpy Cat sued. And won a six-figure sum. It says something about the age in which we live. Quite what, I’m not sure, but something. The sheer weight of random fame is as bizarre as it is terrifying. Having said that, as I write I’m casting one eye over towards my dog lying on her mat and I’m beginning to wonder why she isn’t producing YouTube videos of her own, as a means of contributing to household expenses. That’s said, she’d be more likely to bury a t-shirt in the back yard than sell one. It’s a shame that the cat’s time on Earth was cut somewhat short. Whether it was the fame and the lifestyle that went with it is impossible to say. All I know is that poor old Tardar Sauce is gone and is never coming back. I’d say that we’ll never see her like again, but I just saw a YouTube video featuring a marmot repeatedly saying ‘Alan’ and I feel that the Tardar Sauce-shaped hole in my heart will be very quickly filled. That’s how it goes on the Internet. Grumpy Cat is dead. Long live Grumpy Cat.

Lord Jellicoe’s visit creates excitement that Crib Point reminded him of the Isle of Wight. He frequently visited Ventnor and Rhyll near which places his family was at present residing. He hoped to have the opportunity of visiting the places of the same name in Australia. He deeply sympathised with those who had lost their loved ones during the war. The district had every reason to be proud of the service rendered by those men and to him it was a source of gratification to know that some of the men from Philip Island had actually served with him in the Grand Fleet. The Admiral shook hands and spoke kindly words to Mrs Justie and Mr Mathews, who had lost sons at the war. All present then loudly cheered His Lordship and someone struck up “For he’s a jolly good fellow� in which everyone lustily joined. The party then boarded the train which steamed off to the Naval Base to the strains of the bag pipes. After lunch the visitors inspected the Base buildings and in the afternoon Lord Jellicoe proceeded down the channel in a launch as far as Port Western. He stated subsequently that the general surroundings resembled in many respects the waters off Spit Head. At 3.20pm the party left on the return journey to Melbourne, bearing away one of whom we are all very proud. The Children’s Part It was a pleasant sight to see all the school children assembled at Crib Point to do honor to Lord Jellicoe and the manner in which they carried out the duties allotted to them reflects the highest credit on the school masters of Crib Point, Bittern and Phillip Island schools.

The children from Phillip Island, who it is stated were carried free on the steamer by the generous order of Mr Sambell, marched from Stony Point headed by the Scouts patrol to the enlivening strains of the bag pipes, which warmed the hearts of the many good old Scots’ present. The Bittern children arrived on lorries bedecked with flags and the Empire colors. The Crib Point children headed by Master Arthur Emmine carrying the good old flag, marched to the place of meeting with much pride and determination to do their duty. All acquitted themselves admirably. *** NEXT Friday evening, in the Frankston Hall, a social evening will be given to a number of our boys recently returned from active service. *** THE Returned Soldiers of Frankston are holding a euchre party and dance on Wednesday, 11th June, when a good night’s enjoyment is assured. *** THE article which appeared in a recent issue of the “Standard,� dealing with seasonable gardening from the amateur standpoint has caused such favorable comment that we have arranged with the writer to supply a series of articles on the same subject and these will appear monthly. *** FRANKSTON School Board – The first meeting of the newly elected School Board was held at Frankston on Tuesday evening last to elect office bearers.

Compiled by Cameron McCullough THE visit to our district of the Empire’s greatest naval hero Admiral Viscount Jellicoe naturally excited great interest locally and residents assembled in great numbers to bid him welcome. He arrived by special train at 10.50am on Wednesday last and was accompanied by members of his personal staff, including Commodore F. C. Dreyer and Lieutenant Colonel Robertson, of the Royal Air Force; the Acting Prime Minister (Mr Watt), the Acting Navy Minister (Mr Poynton), the Minister of Works and Railways (Mr Groom), Mr. J. R. Seattle, Director of Naval Works; Lieutenant–Colonel Goebel, in charge of the naval side of the Australian air force scheme, and Major Berriman, also of the Australian Air Forces. Lord Jellicoe was met at the Railway Station by the school children of Crib Point, Bittern, and Cowes, and the Boy Scouts of Cowes greeted him with the Scouts welcome. The children, who were lined up to form a Guard of Honor, flew their colors of red, White and blue. The Admiral received the welcome with a salute and his pleasant and kindly expression at once won the hearts of all. Councillor McFee, of Cowes welcomed Lord Jellicoe on behalf of the residents of Western Port. He referred to the many who had paid the supreme sacrifice in defence of Empire and spoke with pride and gratitude of the sailors and soldiers who had returned or were returning. In reply the Admiral thanked Cr McFee and the people for the hearty welcome accorded him. He remarked

Pythons nipped by the Buds DIVISION ONE

By Brodie Cowburn PINES have suffered a shock defeat for the second consecutive week after being bested by Rosebud at Olympic Oval. Looking to bounce back from a disappointing loss last week, Pines still didn’t look at their best in the first term. At the quarter time break Rosebud held a surprise eight point lead. Pines pushed back in the second quarter and took back the lead, and were up by 11 at the main break. Despite losing some momentum Rosebud refused to lie down, and with the difference standing at just one point going into the final term, the game looked poised to go down to the wire. The promise of a close finish was taken away when Rosebud ran away with it in the final term, kicking five goals to the Pythons’ two. Rosebud had to work hard, but eventually secured the win 11.10 (76) to 8.14 (62). Thomas Stoffels booted three goals for the Buds, while Josh Fisher also played at his best. Pines will have a chance to get back on track next week when they take on bottom of the ladder Mornington. Traditionally dominant Franskton YCW also struggled this weekend, as they fell short against Mt Eliza. The Stonecats looked a shell of the side which has dominated the league for the last decade, and only kicked one goal in the first half of the game. The Redlegs also struggled to put goals on the board, but were able to do enough to establish a buffer. They eventually got the win in a low scoring matchup 4.10 (34) to 7.10 (52). Mitch McCarthy and Shane Tennant were among the best for the victorious Redlegs. Dromana kept up their good start to life in the top division, claiming the four points against Bonbeach.

The Sharks went into quarter time with a narrow lead, but the Tigers got back on top in the second term. A see-sawing first half was contrasted by a one sided second, as Dromana blew the Sharks out of the water. An eight goals to three second half helped Dromana get the win over Bonbeach 13.15 (93) to 6.11 (47). At Regents Park, the Frankston Bombers recovered from a rough start to claim a win over Edithvale-Aspendale. Edi-Asp got things started on the right foot, leading at both the quarter and half time breaks. The Bombers were struggling to convert their chances, and would have been in a better position had they not kicked 3.10 in the first half. The Bombers steadied the ship and got back in the contest by kicking five straight in the third term. Up by two heading into the final quarter, the Bombers were able to kick away and secure a hard fought win. The final score read 8.10 (58) to 10.15 (75). The loss is particularly devastating for Edi-Asp, who have only notched one win for the year. At David Macfarlane Reserve, Sorrento fought off a brave Mornington outfit. The Bulldogs have struggled badly all season and look to be in danger of relegation. Up against the ladder leaders away from home, few would have expected them to be competitive. The Bulldogs had an answer for everything the Sharks threw at them, and led by less than 10 points at each break of play. Sorrento were able to run away with it on the final quarter by kicking seven goals, securing them the win 14.16 (100) to 10.6 (66). Leigh Poholke and Jackson Calder each kicked four goals for their respective sides.

Yabbies score dominant win at home DIVISION TWO

By Brodie Cowburn A STUNNING seven goals to one opening term has helped set Tyabb up for a massive win over Pearcedale at Bunguyan Reserve. The Yabbies have been among the strugglers this year, but had a chance to get a win over another struggling side in Pearcedale. Tyabb proved they are a side with plenty of ability by putting Pearcedale to the sword, eventually running away with a 92 point win. The final score read 20.9 (129) to 4.13 (37). Matthew Ravenall booted seven goals while his teammate Michael Altenkirch also chipped in with a bag of five. Another dominant display took place at Chelsea Reserve, as the travelling Red Hill solidified their status as the team to beat this year with an impressive win. Taking on Chelsea, Red Hill started positively and held the Seagulls goalless in the first term. Chelsea never looked a chance, as Red Hill put together another unbelievable performance, They have regularly destroyed sides this season, and Saturday proved no different. Chelsea could only manage three goals for the day as Red Hill claimed the win 3.7 (25) to 18.14 (122). Jonathon Ross booted six goals for the Hillmen, taking his tally to the year to 34. Things were a little closer at Lloyd Park as

Langwarrin hosted Hastings. Hastings went scoreless in the first term but hit back in the second to get within seven points. Although the Blues kept in touch all day, a five goals to one final quarter saw the Kangaroos win 10.15 (75) to 5.13 (43). Seaford also had to endure a tight game in order to claim the four points this weekend, as they hosted Devon Meadows. The Panthers got the upper hand early in the low scoring affair, and led by seven at the first break. The Tigers took the lead back in the second term and managed to keep the Panthers at an arm’s length for the remainder of the afternoon. Seaford were held to just one goal in the last quarter but had done enough to get the win 9.8 (62) to 8.5 (53). Somerville had no trouble finding the scoreboard against Rye, scoring a good comeback win. The Demons started off in charge, and led by 14 points at the first break. Somerville hit back in the second term and led by four at half time, with both sides finding the scoreboard without trouble. A six goals to one third term put the result beyond doubt, as Somerville ran away with it. The Demons couldn’t back up their good first half and eventually succumbed to defeat 20.12 (132) to 12.15 (87). Daniel Marshall and Ryan Gillis both booted five for the Eagles. Crib Point had another difficult afternoon, losing by over 100 points against Karingal. The Bulls rampaged through the Magpies, with Matthew Stanley booting seven goals and Marc Holt six. The siren finally sounded to put the Magpies out of their misery with the scoreboard reading 21.15 (141) to 5.5 (35).


Portelli, Etheridge, Jansz for Langy SOCCER

By Craig MacKenzie LANGWARRIN agreed terms with Lucas Portelli and Max Etheridge last weekend and they are expected to make their debuts against Brunswick City on Saturday. Portelli is an 18-year-old central defender signed from Melbourne City and Langy tried to sign him before the start of the season. Etheridge, 28, is a former Morwell Pegasus, Bentleigh Greens and Mornington striker and has recently finished a second stint at Kingston City. Winger Brandon Jansz, 19, agreed terms with Langy last week. He is a former Melbourne Victory, South Melbourne, Mornington and Peninsula Strikers player and was signed from Springvale White Eagles. The player points system in force at NPL level forced Langwarrin to make room for their new signings so strikers Roddy Covarrubias and Johnny Kuol were released. Both players were shocked when told as Covarrubias has been one of Langy’s hardest workers this season while Kuol is a cult figure at the club due to his trademark somersault goal celebration. Jansz made his debut in last weekend’s 4-1 home loss to Whittlesea Ranges. A long-range effort from Luke Goulding in the 12th minute opened the scoring but Whittlesea levelled through Jose Ramires five minutes before half-time and second-half goals from Jonathan Datillo (2) and Lawrence Shuruma completed the scoreline. In NPLW news Southern United lost 7-0 to Alamein at Monterey Reserve last weekend. Southern’s under-19s lost 1-0 as did the under16s while the under-14s won 3-0 with goals from Rhiannon Kelleher (2) and Alex Jones and the under-12s lost 2-0. In State 1 news Mornington drew 0-0 at home against big-spending Nunawading City on Saturday. Adam Jamieson’s side was dealt a bodyblow when Sam Scott suffered a fractured fibula and ankle and had to be replaced by Chris McKenna after 24 minutes. Mornington will hold a mid-season review after its next match against Eltham Redbacks in a fortnight and may reset its goals for the remainder of the season. In State 2 news Peninsula Strikers lost 2-0 at home to North Caulfield on Sunday. Strikers went into the match without suspended midfielder Grant Lane and Jon Guthrie who is recovering from a medial ligament strain while big Michael Hoogendyk was on the bench as he had battled flu throughout the previous week. A combination of poor finishing and remarkable reflex saves from North Caulfield keeper Sam Quinn kept Strikers at bay. Big John Prescott could have had five or six goals to his name while Anton Vulic couldn’t hit the target when Prescott sent him through in the 30th minute with just Quinn to beat. North Caulfield player-coach Ariel Rix was sent off from the technical area four minutes into

the second half after persistently complaining about refereeing decisions. His departure was greeted with a chorus of derisory laughter from home fans but the visitors were to have the last laugh. Strikers soon discovered that their first-half profligacy in front of goal was to continue throughout the second period. Hoogendyk and Matt Harrington came off the bench in the 65th minute with Harrington causing problems for North Caulfield down Strikers’ right flank and he twice set up Prescott to no avail. In the 78th minute Hoogendyk’s shot was blocked, Harrington’s shot from the rebound was blocked and when the ball fell to Jordan Avraham on the left he struck a low drive that flashed just wide of the far post. Just when it seemed that we were destined for a scoreless draw the visitors struck. Strikers had the ball in the back of the net in the 81st minute only to be denied by the linesman’s flag. North Caulfield quickly took the resultant free-kick and within seconds Benji Schneider was scooting down the right wing and his square ball across the face of goal was met by a sliding Shayan Missaghi for the opener. Four minutes later Joshua Hodes reacted quickest to a scramble inside the Strikers’ area and poked the ball past Strikers’ keeper Colin McCormack to make it 2-0. There was no way back now for the home side. In State 3 news Skye United earned bragging rights and stretched its winning streak to six games with a 2-0 win over Frankston Pines at Monterey Reserve last Friday night.

The bizarre elements of this match involved a half-time streaker and a second-half delay while someone left the ground to ask the driver sitting in his car parked directly behind the Pines goals to turn off high beam. Goodness knows what would have happened had the driver exercised their right to refuse the request. But there was some football played and Pines fashioned the first good chance after three minutes when CJ Hodgson squared the ball to Meron Negassi inside the area and his first-time shot was parried by Skye keeper Jonathan Crook. The opening goal came in the 12th minute when Skye broke quickly down the right and Mikey Turner played in big Daniel Attard whose first-time sidefoot was angled wide of Pines keeper Alfonso Cardinale. In the 24th minute Jason Nowakowksi was put through on the right of the area and his cutback was met at the back post by the incoming Mitch Blake for a tap-in and a hammer blow to the home team’s hopes from which it never recovered. Three minutes later Blake should have put Pines out of its misery but he blasted high and wide with just Cardinale to beat. But the miss-of-the-night award went to wee Turner after Attard put him through in the 63rd minute and the Scottish striker had his first attempt parried by Cardinale then ran onto the rebound and faced with an unguarded goal did the difficult thing by missing the target. Pines went into the match without experienced defender Daniel Mota who was ill, midfielder Serge Yanez was unavailable while striker Jason Bradbury is still on his honeymoon. Skye midfielder Jack Gallagher is overseas but




new signing Alex Rojas came off the bench in the second half and the former Northcote City, Dandenong City and South Springvale midfielder could play a vital role in the club’s promotion push. Midfielder Marcus Collier continues his rehab from ACL surgery and is expected to be back in action in six to eight weeks. In State 4 news Baxter lost 5-1 at home to Seaford United last weekend. Baxter went into this clash undermanned and its cause was all but lost after 14 minutes when both central defenders had to be substituted. Matt McDermott suffered a broken eye socket in a head clash in the 10th minute and Izaak Barr’s hamstring injury ended his involvement four minutes later. Barr was unlucky as the referee didn’t see the linesman flagging for offside and play continued forcing Barr to stretch out to block a shot heading for goal resulting in his injury. Dylan Waugh opened Seaford’s account in the 19th minute when he was put through and shielded the ball well on the left of the area before neatly clipping it past advancing Baxter keeper James Foster and into the far corner of goal. Foster stopped Seaford ending this as a contest in the first 45 minutes but he couldn’t stop a low Nic Ormond volley from just inside the area in the 56th minute after Baxter twice failed to clear properly. Seaford player-coach Matt Morris-Thomas replaced injured Waugh early in the second period and he headed in to make it 3-0 in the 68th minute then rounded Foster for a tap-in four minutes later. In the 74th minute Seaford keeper James Madafferi stopped Nat Daher from converting Baxter’s best chance but in the 83rd minute Lewis Gibson threaded the eye of the needle with a drive from the right of the area when Madafferi had anticipated a cross. Foster lost possession after diving low to stop a Morris-Thomas shot a minute later and Matthais Schwellinger strolled into goal to make it 5-1. In State 5 news Somerville missed a host of chances but kept its promotion chase on course with a 2-1 home win over Bunyip District last weekend. Ben Meiklem and Mark Pagliarulo scored for Somerville. Rosebud won 2-1 away against Hampton Park United with Chris Parry and Mike Durrance scoring for Rosebud while Aspendale’s goals in its 4-2 home loss to Endeavour Hills Fire came from Kenan Nuhanovic and Ben Garside Weinert. This weekend is a catch-up round for State League sides while there is a full NPL program for both men and women. There are just four matches featuring local clubs: This week’s games: Brunswick City v Langwarrin (Dunstan Reserve), Calder Utd v Southern Utd (Keilor Park Recreation Reserve), Brighton v Skye Utd (Dendy Park, pitch 5), Rosebud v Somerville Eagles (Olympic Park).

Jim Conlan takes reins of Singapore star By Ben Triandafillou MORNINGTON-based racehorse trainer Jim Conlan is set to train Singapore’s second highest-rated galloper and five-time Group One winner, Debt Collector. The former Cliff Brown-trained “Horse of the Year” (2016) has amassed more than $3.1 million in prize money and is set to leave for Australia this month. Debt Collector, a 122-rated six-year-old gelding, has claimed 12 wins and four placings from his 24 starts, including two Group Two’s and a Group Three. It will be the Singapore star’s second trip to Australia, having spelled for five months at Newhaven Farm in the Hunter Valley last year. That trip came after his form took a nosedive at the end of 2017 and clearly worked wonders with the gelding returning to Singapore to add four more wins to his tally, including two at Group One level over 1600m and 1800m. Conlan said the conditions Debt Collector will encounter at Pinecliff will be in stark contrast to those he had in Singapore. “Cliff rang me a couple of weeks ago and was telling me the horse was having a few issues handling the conditions in Singapore,” Conlan said. “I’ve watched all his replays, he’s obviously a fairly talented horse, but it’s always a bit of a query how Singapore form will translate in Australia. But he’s probably the best performed horse to come out of Singapore for a while. “It will be exciting to see where he ends up.” Conlan, who trains out of Pinecliff, Mount Eliza, has already had success with another former Singapore galloper, Clear For Action, who claimed a Moonee Valley metropolitan race in the winter of 2013. Clear For Action was also formerly trained by Brown and had finished second in three Group One races prior to debuting in Australia. Debt Collector will need to enter Australian quarantine before heading into Conlan’s care.
