Welders show their mettle SPARKS were flying at Chisholm TAFE’s Frankston campus last month when welders competed at the third annual Welding Triathlon. Chisholm TAFE student Blake McDonald, a Certificate IV in Engineering graduate, was crowned ‘Best Welder in Victoria for 2018’ from a field of 12 competitors. Welders showed skills across three timed events showing speed, accuracy and skill. The inclusion of a virtual reality machine to test welding skills in complex scenarios was a challenge for the welders. Mr McDonald, 24, won a Lincoln Welder and helmet for being the brightest spark at the Welding Australia contest. “I’ve competed the last two years and came last in 2017 and was determined to do better this year,” he said. The Cranbourne resident works at Dandenong South’s Bar Crusher Boats. Runners-up were also Chisholm TAFE graduates. Daniel Harrison took out second place and Gary Horn was third. Event organiser and Chisholm teacher Rodney Bentvelzen said the contest shows welding as an attractive career choice. See chisholm.edu.au for information on courses.

‘Breakwater’ studies underway Keith Platt keith@baysidenews.com.au STUDIES are underway into what effect a breakwater near the Olivers Hill, Frankston boat ramp will have on surrounding beaches. Previous studies linked to a marina stretching hundreds of metres into the bay have shown it could affect beaches as far north as Mordialloc and a close

as Daveys Bay, Mt Eliza. The latest research - bathymetric surveys, a hydrographic survey and modelling of sand and tidal movements – follow Frankston Council’s 2017 decision to “develop a coast guard and boat refuge”. The mayor Cr Colin Hampton issued a statement “to address some areas of concern or confusion” surrounding the council’s intentions of building a breakwater at Olivers Hill.

He said the breakwater would “provide protection for small boat users accessing the boat ramp in all weather conditions, it would also enable the Coast Guard vessel to have a protected permanent anchorage, resulting in improved response times to emergencies in the bay and safer transfer of rescued individuals to hospital”. “The impact from strong waves and the potential damage to a vessel should it be moored to the pier during rough

weather could potentially become fatal,” Cr Hampton said. “With these risks in mind, it is necessary to consider a breakwater, which has been used effectively in numerous locations across Port Phillip.” Cr Hampton said the studies, or fact finding exercises, “will inform the feasibility and likely impact of options to create a boat refuge or calm water area around the Olivers Hill boat ramp”. A Coast Guard centre near the boat

ramp “would be ideally located close to the vessel’s anchorage and where fishermen and small boat users enter and leave the bay using the recently redeveloped Olivers Hill boat ramp”. “Council recognises that detailed investigative work is required before any plans are considered, including any alternatives, which will take into account community consultation and feedback,” Cr Hampton said.

A PROMINENT playground at the Frankston Waterfront is getting a $1.25 million makeover for families to enjoy. Frankston councillors voted behind closed doors after the public council meeting on Monday 23 April to spend the money over two financial years to upgrade the playground near the foreshore, known for its highly-visible “pixie hat” steel cone roofs.

playground ceptional surrounding environment, with junior and senior play equipment and accessible play opportunities for children of all abilities.” New sand play zones, ramps, shelter, decks plus swings and slides will be included in the redevelopment. Construction works are slated to begin in late June and are expected to take about three months.

A VICTORIAN budget dubbed “a budget for the ‘burbs” has seen the Labor state government splash taxpayers’ cash across Frankston and ultramarginal sandbelt seats along the Frankston line ahead of November’s state election. Frankston Labor MP Paul Edbrooke hailed the budget, announced last Tuesday (1 May) by Victorian Treasurer Tim Pallas, as “getting things done for Frankston”. Millions of dollars for classroom upgrades at several Frankston area schools have been allocated in the 2018-19 state budget. Students at Monterey Secondary College, Mahogany Rise Primary School, Mount Erin Secondary College, Ballam Park Primary School, Karingal Primary School and Kingsley Park Primary School will benefit from improvements to classrooms. “We’re upgrading our local schools — but more than just bricks and mortars, this will give local families peace of mind about their kids’ future,” Mr Edbrooke said in a statement. A $1.3 million plan to modernise classrooms at the Nepean Special School in Seaford and $15 million towards a Frankston North Education Precinct was also confirmed in this year’s state budget. A long-awaited duplication of Lathams Road in Carrum Downs, from Oliphant Way to FrankstonDandenong Road, adding two lanes to increase a 2.5-kilometre stretch of the road to four lanes was also confirmed in the state budget. A new bridge will also be built over Peninsula Link as part of the Lathams Road upgrade.

Carrum Labor MP Sonya Kilkenny said “people in Melbourne’s south-east will spend less time in traffic”. The Committee For Greater Frankston welcomed the Lathams Road duplication, estimated to cost more than $80 million, formally announced by Victorian Roads Minister Luke Donnellan on Tuesday 2 May. Committee for Greater Frankston CEO Ginevra Hosking said the announcement was “fantastic news” for Carrum Downs Industrial Estate businesses and commuters. “Lathams Road is the backbone of the precinct and its duplication will provide a massive boost to productivity by reducing traffic congestion and increasing access at peak times,” she said. “The industrial estate is one of our region’s economic success stories. It generates $2.85 billion a year and employs almost 6000 people. Jobs growth in the precinct has risen 6.5 per cent each year, 13 times greater than the south-eastern region’s jobs growth of half a per cent.” Ms Hosking said traffic congestion on Lathams Road and surrounding streets had restricted the growth of industrial estate businesses. The committee, which has long lobbied for the Lathams Road upgrade, states it is “independently funded and bipartisan [and] brings together prominent local business and community leaders to drive strategic change”. Ms Hosking said VicRoads getting on board to duplicate Lathams Road had been pivotal in getting funds allocated to the project. The state government also announced road safety upgrades on Golf Links Road from Peninsula Link to Baxter-Tooradin Road and Grant Road from Baxter to Frankston-Flinders Road in

Langwarrin South. “The committee thanks MPs Sonya Kilkenny and Paul Edbrooke as well as VicRoads’ regional director for metro southeast Aidan McGann and his team.” The state budget also included money to establish mental health crisis hubs in hospital emergency departments, including at Frankston Hospital, and $172 million to “make priority TAFE courses free”. Mr Edbrooke said this will give more Frankston residents the chance to train at Chisholm TAFE to upskill to get “a good job”. TAFE courses regarded as a priority and offered free of charge to students include agriculture, construction, engineering and nursing courses. Municipal Association of Victoria president Cr Mary Lalios said the state budget is “impressive” in funding transport infrastructure and services. The peak body representing councils urged the state government to invest and take action to help tackle the recycling crisis caused by China no longer accepting most of the glass and plastics in recycling materials exported from Australia to China. “A recycling crisis has swept across Australia following China’s import restrictions. The State Sustainability Fund must invest in new initiatives to en-sure our recycling industry can be sustainable,” she said. “We call on the government to allocate urgent funds for priority projects once the state’s recycling taskforce submits its report in the coming weeks.” Frankston Council expects an annual recycling charge rise of $38 a year for ratepayers across the municipality as the China crisis begins to bite.

There’s plenty of wagging at this pool’s program

Splish, splash: Labradoodles Dusty and Evie and their owner Karina Turnbull are keen participants in fitness and therapy sessions at Aquapaws Canine Rehabilitation Centre, Somerville. Picture: Gary Sissons

Stephen Taylor steve@baysidenews.com.au FOND memories of 47 dachshunds gleefully running amok at her swimming pool for dogs a few years back still makes Somerville woman Jo Woolley laugh. “They came to us via a Facebook group booking for a pool party and had an absolute ball in and out of the water,” she said. “They were hilarious.” That’s easy to imagine as the pool at Aquapaws Canine Rehabilitation Centre is a favourite destination for its regular four-legged visitors. Ms Woolley says she can hear her customers panting and squealing as they literally drag their owners across the car park to get there. “They are off the planet,” she said. Ms Woolley, who has run the business in Lower Somerville Road for the past 14 years, developed her skills during a canine rehabilitation therapy and

hydrotherapy degree course in the UK and the US in the early 2000s. Back home, her vocation coincided with a growing desire by dog owners here to better care for their dogs, who receive physiotherapy, acupuncture, chiropractic, massage, pain management and rehabilitation treatments after injury or surgery. Fido fitness and weight-loss are popular aims and there’s even a seniors’ program for older dogs. Dogs of all shapes and sizes learn to swim in the 12-metre pool wearing lifejackets while their owners encourage them holding a handle on the back or using a leash. Their pets enjoy the feeling of the 24-degree water and become comfortable paddling and exercising. A puppy swim school teaches up to 10 puppies to swim at a time at $66 for four sessions. While the dachshunds were amusing, so too were the 52 greyhounds brought in by a dog rescue group. “That was a fun day and it was bucket-

ing down with rain at the time,” Ms Woolley said. In another amusing episode a largish woman fell head-first into the magnesium and salt chlorinated pool after her dog accidentally pushed her. “It took four of us 20 minutes to pull her out and she, and we, were laughing,” Ms Woolley said. “I even had to jump in and pull her gumboots off so she could get up the steps.” Despite this mishap, it’s easy to get the impression the owners have as much fun as their pets. “Many bring gazebos and trestle tables to picnic in the leash-free area and provide treats and even cakes for their dogs. They are here for hours.” Ms Woolley said most dogs were natural swimmers and took to the water with ease – especially the natural swimmers, like Labradors and retrievers. For others it’s simply a matter of diving in and learning by doing. And every dog seems to love doing that. Entry is $12.50 for 30 minutes, and $10 for a do-it-yourself wash and blow dry.

Annual bowel scans MT ELIZA Rotary Club has teamed up with 35 pharmacies to extend its annual bowel scan program. Of the 217 participants in last year’s program five per cent required further medical follow up by their doctor. Bowel scan kits cost $15 and are used to test for blood in bowel motions. The kits are sent for analysis and if blood is present it may be due to haemorrhoids, polyps or cancer in the large bowel. The free government kits supplied every four years are seen by Rotary as being more complicated to use and not made available as frequently as recommended (every two years). Bowel cancer is one of the most common cancers, along with lung, breast and prostate cancer. It affects one in 19 men and one in 28 women and is mostly seen in those aged 40 and over. Ninety per cent of bowel cancers can be cured if detected early. Indicator signs include changes in bowel habits; weight loss; feeling of incomplete emptying of the bowel; persistent cramps or abdominal pain; blood in bowel motions. Mt Eliza Rotary has this year extended the bowel scan program throughout the Mornington Peninsula and Western Port with the involvement of 35 pharmacies. Kits are available at participating pharmacies in Frankston, Mt Eliza, Mornington, Mt Martha, Dromana, Rosebud, Rye, Sorrento, Red Hill, Hastings and elsewhere in the Western Port area.

Seagrass talk IAN Stevenson, of the Western Port Seagrass Project, will talk about research into seagrass, mangroves and fish nurseries at the Peninsula Field Naturalists Club meeting, 8pm, Wednesday 9 May, at 16 High Street, Frankston 8pm. All welcome. Details: Judy Smart 0400 910 941

NEWS DESK Anglers trawl deep to help family CONTESTANTS in the Western Port Angling Club’s 2018 Whiting Challenge raised $4600 for the family of Tahlia Birch, who is recuperating from an operation in the Royal Children’s Hospital to stem an aggressive brain tumour. Tahlia, 10, who previously won the junior girls’ section of the whiting competition, is reportedly showing some signs of improvement after suffering some setbacks. Her family says she has regained her sense of smell and smiles a lot but still has a long way to go with her rehabilitation. She especially likes to be taken out in her stroller in the sunshine. Organisers hope money raised through the raffle will save her parents Andrew and Sharon from worrying about day-to-day expenses, allowing Andrew to take time off work and look after his family. The club thanks its sponsors as well as members of Snapper Point Angling Club, Mornington, whose members bought tickets in the raffle and matched it with a $400 cheque. Despite losing his house and all his possessions in an overnight fire (“Trainer’s house lost in blaze” The News, 24/4/18), Somerville horse trainer Kane Harris was still his generous old self afterwards. He asked Western Port Angling Club “Watchman” Brian Howell to gather up all theTMmeat that was stored ZeroGravity in his freezer and untouched by the 100% fire cordless, and to donate100% it to thesafe Birch family. “There was chicken, schnitzel, mince, gravy beef … I gathered up a big esky full and donated it to the Chain Operation family and they were thrilled,” Mr If youHowell cannot said. avoid installing

Labor and city lose life-long supporter OBITUARY

Rogan John Ward 25/7/1943 - 3/4/2018 Real estate agent By Keith Platt THERE’S no doubt Rogan Ward liked to talk. He was also an accomplished musician. A man who travelled through life to the beat of his own drum, often with beneficial outcomes for others. That being said, it was perhaps no surprise that the stroke that led to his death on Monday 30 April occurred while having a chat over a coffee in a cafe with a client. A former mayor of Frankston (1981-82) and long-time Labor party member (and candidate), Mr Ward would have been 75 in July. Mr Ward’s wife Diana, with who he ran Frankston-based Commercial Property Services alongside his son Brett, was able to speak with her husband after he was admitted to Frankston Hospital. Proud of her husband’s involvement in community development, Ms Ward last Thursday recalled a time when sewers, or lack of them, were an issue: “Back in the late 1970s and early 1980s, no suburbs on the Mornington Peninsula were sewered, despite the rapidly growing population. “Scenes of kids around Kananook and Seaford having to wade through untreated sewerage outraged Rogan and his fellow councillor Heikki Mamers, so the two of them fought

hard to have the crisis fixed. “Eventually they managed to win the council over to supporting their call for the construction of modern sewer systems and Frankston became the first town on the peninsula to be fully sewered.” Mr Ward was Labor’s candidate in the December 1982 Flinders byelection that triggered Bob Hawke’s

elevation to prime ministership. The by-election, caused by the retirement of Sir Phillip Lynch, saw an unexpected win by Liberal candidate Peter Reith over Mr Ward, 34,765 votes to 31,052. Prime Minister Malcolm Fraser called an early double dissolution election and Labor replaced its leader, Bill Hayden (who claimed that a

“drover’s dog” could lead the ALP to victory) with Bob Hawke. Facing another election in Flinders, Labor replaced Mr Ward with Bob Chynoweth who defeated Mr Reith (re-elected at the December 1984 election). In December 1982 The Age reported that Mr Ward’s father, Jack, had the Star Hotel at Narrandera and a farm at Gillenbah In the Riverina, the area where Rogan Ward was born. Mr Ward senior sold the pub and farm after three unsuccessful attempts to win the federal seat of Riverina, and bought three newspapers. Rogan Ward, who idolised former Labor Premier of NSW Jack Lang, was reported as saying his grandfather and great-grandfather were foundation members of the Labor Party. His great-grandfather was in the great shearers' strike of 1890. In the electorate of Flinders one does not have to walk far down the street with Mr Ward to realise that he is very well known. "In the local papers, I am very rarely off the front page," he says. Rogan Ward is survived by his mother Marjorie (an awarded author), his wife Diana, their eldest son Brett, their second son Liam and his partner Shu Shu, daughter Birra-li and her husband Chai and older children daughter Kim and son Mark, his brother Glen and sister Jacqui, and his three grandchildren Malina, Yuthana and Jantra. A “celebration of the life” of Rogan Ward is at 11am tomorrow (Tuesday 8 May) in the Simpson 2 Room at Frankston RSL.

Frankston Times 7 May 2018

HOTEL Sorrento by Australian playwright Hannie Rayson is a highly commercial and relatable comedy/drama and familial story for a mainstream audience. This award winning play, which inspired the film of the same name, tells the story of three sisters who grew up together in the seaside town Sorrento. Hilary lives in the family home in Sorrento with her father and 16 year-old son. Pippa, a business woman, is visiting from New York and Meg, a successful writer, returns from England. When the three sisters are reunited after 10 years apart they again feel the constraints of family life. A semi-autobiographical book written by middle sister and expat Meg triggers the familial tensions and dramas that eventuate. The play is about family in a literal and metaphorical sense and the importance of blood ties and collective memory, true or false. Hotel Sorrento was first performed in 1990 by the Playbox Theatre Company and won an AWGIE, NSW Premier’s Literary Award and a

Green Room Award. Since then the play has had over 50 productions throughout Australia and overseas (winning critical acclaim on its London debut), and has been translated into French, Japanese and Swedish. “This is a real Australian family in a real Australian setting, a gentle psychological thriller that no Australian should miss.” Adelaide Theatre Guide “Rayson puts all the issues out there and explores corners of the human heart… director Bruce Myles has delivered a faithful, beach walk-pace production that remains true to Rayson’s objectives.” The Sunday Mail Hotel Sorrento.

Composer seeks backing for historic opera that was a child’s destiny Keith Platt keith@baysidenews.com.au CLASSICAL musician, Sean Ross, echoes claims by the Spanish artist Salvador Dali that his art was influenced by memories from before he was born. Part-raised in Frankston and a onetime boarder at Peninsula Grammar, Mt Eliza, Ross credits his then-pregnant mother’s playing of Tchaikovsky on a cassette player with his “destiny” to write an opera about the Russian composer’s life. “I truly believe my opera was conceived with me, in my mother’s womb, and that it was therefore my destiny to write it. I’d even go so far as to say it was written on the very blueprint of my soul,” he says. “Listening to Tchaikovsky’s music [when studying the composer at Melbourne University] was like remembering a language I had once spoken, long ago. “It resonated with me in a unique way, and I just felt I understood it intimately, in a way I can’t claim to comprehend the music of other composers.” Although a man whose work composing, conducting an orchestra, or accompanying singers at the piano – is steeped in the classics, Ross is using very modern methods to raise money.

COMPOSER Sean Ross with his nephew, Caleb McDonnell, at the workshop of Act Two of his opera in January 2017 and, above, as depicted by Melbourne artist, Paul McCluskey in 2001.

Whereas in the past artists looked for a patron, they can now look to many sources for patronage, or audience sourcing. Ross’s efforts to raise money to pay for rehearsals and Melbourne concert performances of Act Three of his opera, Tchaikovsky, Angel of Music with the Royal Melbourne Philharmonic choir and orchestra, with Opera Australia soloists have ranged from radio interviews to Facebook, inserting flyers into concert programs and

the online Australian Cultural Fund. Although Tchaikovsky, Angel of Music won the Director’s Choice Award for opera in the 2014 Boston International Contempo Festival, that is no guarantee of having it performed on an ongoing basis. “We have raised about one third of the money needed to finance the [$110,000] project, but need a further $40,000-50,000 by mid-year if we are to be able to go ahead and plan the rehearsals and performances for

as early as March or April, 2019,” he told The Times. Now based in Brisbane, Ross has “plastered a media release all over Facebook”, spoken on several radio programs and received endorsement from conductor and music director Andrew Wailes, who spoke at length about the Tchaikovsky to the audience at last August’s RMP Aria Final. A flyer about the project was included with the evening’s concert program. “A similar flyer was also included

in the programs of audience members attending the RMP's performance of Messiah last December, so the target audience has been targeted on several occasions,” Ross said. He is also anticipating article in a Melbourne daily newspaper “in the next month or two, which will no doubt help us enormously, in terms of generating wider publicity”. “I’m deeply flattered that Maestro Wailes has chosen to support my opera, for it means I’ll have at my disposal the combined forces of one of the finest musical ensembles in the country,” Ross says. “With the added interest from great singers including Guy Booth, Sally-Anne Russell, and Andrwew Jones, it would be such a shame if we weren’t able to raise sufficient funds in time to present the concerts in 2019. “Naturally, I’ve applied for numerous government and family foundation grants to date, … but, sadly, with very little success. “Even the Royal Melbourne Philharmonic has failed to receive support from prominent funding bodies in recent years, so we really are reliant on the generosity of opera and new music lovers of means if we’re to see this project go ahead next year.” Details: www.seanpeterross.com or donate at australianculturalfund.org. au, under Sean Ross’s opera’s name, Tchaikovsky, Angel of Music.

Local and compassionate care for cancer patients SKYE local Melanie Rees was able to spend every precious last moment with her late husband Joel in hospital before he passed away on Boxing Day last year; but only because of Frankston Hospital’s expanding Oncology service. The 55-year-old sadly lost his battle with aggressive tongue and throat cancer and spent his last weeks on Ward 5FS at Frankston Hospital. “If I didn’t have the support of Frankston Hospital I wouldn’t have been able to spend as much quality time with Joel,” says his wife Melanie. “When Joel was receiving treatment in the city there was an endless amount of travel time, around three hours a day. If Joel was still in Melbourne during this time I would have been up for a bucket load in accommodation and parking just to spend time with him.” Demand continues to grow for our oncology service, which is why Peninsula Health is asking the community to Take a Break for Cancer and raise funds to expand cancer services on the Peninsula so that families like Melanie and Joel can get the care and support they need, close to home. Joel was initially diagnosed with cancer at Frankston Hospital in January 2016 after having a series of sore throats. “After his fifth visit to the GP with a sore throat he was referred to Peninsula Health’s ENT specialists and that’s where they diagnosed him with tongue cancer,” explains Melanie. Joel then had to go to the city for some of his treatment. A comedian to his friends who loved to dress up, Joel was doing well until he started getting headaches and having difficulty breathing towards the end of last year.

CEO declares cruise Keith Platt keith@baysidenews.com.au MORNINGTON Peninsula Shire CEO Carl Cowie has now listed a Mediterranean cruise he and his wife took as guests of businessman Lindsay Fox on the shire’s gifts register. Mr Cowie previously maintained he did not need to register the cruise as it was made during his annual leave and at no cost to the shire (“Shire boss on Fox ‘party’ cruise”, The Times 11/12/17). In a statement issued late on Friday 20 April confirming he had now listed the Fox cruise on the shire’s gifts register, Mr Cowie repeated that he attended the seven-day cruise in July 2016 “in a private capacity”. Mr Cowie’s estimated value of a Mediterranean cruise undertaken by he and his wife at the invitation of businessman Lindsay Fox is recorded as being $8400. The $8400 cruise is equally apportioned between Mr Cowie and his wife. The entry made by Mr Cowie on Mornington Peninsula Shire’s gifts register is by far the most valuable yet recorded. The next highest is $1202 for return airfares to Sydney, dinner and accommodation for the shire’s chief information officer to attend a Dell EMC forum in August 2017. Mr Cowie and his wife were guests aboard the liner Seabourn Odyssey as it sailed from Athens, Greece, to Venice, Italy. Widely recognised as Mr Fox’s

APRIL – JULY 2018 At Mornington Peninsula Regional Gallery

“conception party” in July 2016, the cruise came months before Mr Fox’s 80th birthday which was celebrated in April 2017 at Montalto Vineyard and Olive Grove, Red Hill South. Mr Fox – generally regarded as one of the peninsula’s most high profile property owners – chartered the Seabourn Odyssey. The ship costs about $200,000 a day to charter and can carry more than 450 passengers. Mr Fox’s guests included actor Hugh Jackman, TV personality and Collingwood Football Club president Eddie McGuire, retail billionaire Solomon Lew and his Premier Investments CEO Mark McInnes, mining magnates Gina Rinehart and Andrew Forrest, former Crown Casino boss and horse breeder Lloyd Williams, the Pratt family and politicians Bill Kelty and Jeff Kennett. Several of the cruise guests own property on the peninsula. The shire’s Gifts, Benefits and Hospitality policy states: “Gifts, benefits and hospitality received must not create a real or perceived sense of obligation that may lead to a perception of preference or conflict.” Written in the third person, the 20 April “Statement from the CEO” said: “From the outset, [Mr Cowie] has been transparent about the trip. “In addition to releasing further details of the cruise in January this year, he has now also declared the activity on the shire’s gifts register. “Mr Cowie is completely satisfied that accepting the invitation to travel on the cruise has not compromised his position as chief executive officer and

will not compromise his position in the future.” The statement also quoted the mayor Cr Bryan Payne as praising Mr Cowie’s decision “for formally listing the cruise on the gifts register as being consistent with the chief executive officer’s responsibilities under the Staff Code of Conduct”. While Mr Cowie has previously called publicity over his trip “a distraction”, Cr Payne saw it as “a real topic”. A former municipal CEO himself, Cr Payne told The Times earlier this year he would not have accepted Mr Fox’s invitation. Cr Payne said he now “accepts Mr Cowie’s reasons for deciding to declare the cruise on the gifts register and looks forward to continuing to work alongside the chief executive officer delivering services to the local community”. Mr Cowie’s decision to register the cruise comes just over a month before councillors decide whether or not to advertise the $400,000 CEO position. Mr Cowie’s contract ends in November and under its terms, he must be told six months’ ahead if the job is to be advertised. Revelations about the Fox cruise led to councillors making the gifts register available to the public and reviewing the “definitions” of words used in the Gifts, Benefits and Hospitality Policy “to ensure that any ambiguity is addressed in a clear and meaningful manner”. Frankston Council’s gifts register is available for public inspection upon request.

Breakwater studies

Continued from Page 1 An announcement of the start of “hydrological, planning and other environmental studies” into a safe boat harbour at Olivers Hill was made 15 months ago by Federal Dunkley Liberal MP Chris Crewther (“Safe harbour gets the green light” The Times 19/2/17). At that stage the studies will determine the further detail for stage two of the project, “being the construction of the project”. Mr Crewther said federal grant of $500,000 would go towards the studies and part of the construction of the harbour at Olivers Hill. He said the “safe boat refuge” would provide safety for small recreation craft in heavy weather, and a secure permanent mooring in 2-3 metres depth for the Frankston Volunteer Coast Guard rescue vessel, and potentially police boats. Mr Crewther asked for the $500,000 before the 2016 federal election.

He said KBR Commercial will design a concept plan by July at the latest and the council construction tender will then go out to market. Construction is planned to begin by May 2019. The safe boat harbour will include a breakwater with access for emergency vehicles, plus lighting and CCTV. Stage one including hydrological studies and the concept plan will cost $253,000 and the remainder of the $500,000 will go towards construction when the scope of the project is known. “Council will co-contribute to the project as required depending on the length of the breakwater,” Mr Crewther said. “It really depends what is needed to protect the boat ramp there and to provide a permanent mooring opportunity for the Coast Guard and Water Police.” The safe boat refuge is separate from a long-floated idea to build a $38-$80 million marina to be “a regional boating hub”.

Roads minister brings gifts of tar and cement By Mike Hast* ROADS Minister Luke Donnellan was at Carrum Downs Industrial Estate on Thursday 3 May to provide detail about duplication of Lathams Road. The $80 million plus project announced in the state budget two days earlier will see the industrial estate’s main road converted from two to four lanes for 2.5 kilometres between Frankston–Dandenong Road and Oliphant Way. The work will include a second bridge over Peninsula Link parallel to the existing bridge, creating two lanes in each direction. The Carrum Downs project is part of the state government’s Suburban Roads Upgrade, $2.2 billion to improve arterial roads in the southeast including in Cranbourne, Dandenong South and Pakenham as well as five roads in the northern suburbs. Mr Donnellan said expressions of interest would be sought mid-year, contractors appointed in early 2019 and completion in 2020. “The $2.2 billion package is about boosting local economies by building a more efficient road network,” he said. “Productivity in the industrial estate could be lifted 20 per cent after duplication.” Ginevra Hosking, CEO of advocacy group Committee for Greater Frankston, said the project would “provide a massive boost to productivity by

reducing traffic congestion and increasing access at peak times”. “The industrial estate is one of our region’s economic success stories. It generates $2.85 billion a year and employs almost 6000 people. Job growth in the precinct has risen 6.5 per cent each year, 13 times greater than the south eastern region’s half a per cent.” She said traffic congestion on Lathams Road and surrounding streets had hampered the growth of industrial estate businesses in recent years. Mr Donnellan acknowledged the role of Carrum MP Sonya Kilkenny in advocating for the project as well as the work of Committee for Greater Frankston. Ms Kilkenny said the committee had “made it easier for me to push the project”. She said making industrial estate businesses more efficient would create more jobs. “Businesses here have created an economic powerhouse for the region.” VicRoads’ director of metro projects east Brendan Pauwels said the project would include four lanes, the new bridge, a shared path, traffic lights at Stephenson Rd, Frankston Gardens Drive and Colemans Road, and two lanes each way on and off EastLink (Rutherford Road). * Mike Hast is a freelance writer for the Committee for Greater Frankston

Bank staff cop a spraying A LANGWARRIN man was apprehended after an attempted robbery at the Westpac bank in Wells Street, Frankston last Tuesday morning. The man walked into the bank wearing a gas mask at about 10.30am on Tuesday (1 May) and allegedly sprayed a security guard and female bank employee with a liquid before demanding cash. Police say the 66-year-old was caught by the bank’s security guard and two passers-by in Young Street. He dumped a canister containing the liquid at a nearby carpark after fleeing the bank. No-one was seriously injured physically during the robbery. Police said the liquid substance was tested by a Country Fire Authority HAZCHEM team and was “found not to be dangerous”. The man appeared in Melbourne Magistrates’ Court on Wednesday 2 May.

Man sought POLICE want to talk to a man about a car fire in Riviera Street, Seaford at about 11.15pm on Friday 16 February. The man was seen on CCTV footage, pictured, from a nearby service station at 10pm, on the corner of Reserve Road and Nepean Highway, buying five litres of fuel before riding on a mountain bike in the direction of Riviera Street. An unregistered Nissan Skyline was then set on fire on Riviera Street.

On the centre console police said was a small glass of orange juice, vodka and ice and, in the passenger foot well, half a bottle of orange juice and vodka. The woman allegedly argued about being taken to the police station, and then tried twice to blow into the machine before recording 0.242 per cent. Police said the 40-year-old, of Seaford, was already disqualified from driving and had multiple convictions for drink driving and refusing breath tests. She was locked up for being drunk in a public place and her car was impounded for a minimum 30 days.

The woman is described as midto-late 30s, large build, long straight brown hair tied in a ponytail, with a dark tattoo on her left forearm.

The South East’s Leading Commercial & Industrial Agency

Owner Occupiers Driving Small Business Demand Demand for small warehouses in south east Melbourne continues to increase, with owner occupiers taking advantage of favourable economic conditions and low interest rates making it cheaper to buy rather than rent.

According to Mr Monks, strong owner occupier demand over the past 18 months has been due to a decline in leasing interest and a preference shift towards purchasing. This is another trend that is likely to continue over the foreseeable future.

According to James Dodge and Joshua Monks, Sales and Leasing Executives with Nichols Crowder Property Solutions in Carrum Downs, developers can hardly keep up with demand for warehouses of under 100sqm up to around 400sqm.

“We have several other small warehouse developments that are proving popular with owner occupiers,” says Mr Monks. “Before construction has started, we’ve already sold 80% of 75 Clifton Grove in Carrum Downs, and 70% of 5 Speedwell Street in Somerville. We’re also excited about a few more small warehouse developments coming up for sale in the area.”

“We’re selling most of these smaller-size warehouses off the plan or prior to completion,” says Mr Dodge. “A large number of these buyers are small businesses looking for a base to operate from, or additional storage. This was certainly the case with 170 Colemans Road, Carrum Downs, where we sold all 52 warehouses before construction had been completed.” Most of these warehouses were purchased by owner occupiers wanting to take advantage of close and easy freeway access, with only around 20% were brought by investors. This is a trend seen in other recent developments marketed and sold by Nichols Crowder prior to completion, including 16 Colemans Road (34 warehouses) and 13 Elite Way (12 warehouses).

Record Price at the Lowest Cost A record price for an industrial warehouse in Frankston has been achieved by Sales and Leasing Executives James Dodge and Richard Wraith of Nichols Crowder Property Solutions at Carrum Downs. The warehouse at 8/38 New Street was auctioned onsite on March 23 in front of approximately 30 people, selling under the hammer for $498,000. “At around 176sqm, the vacant property sold for $2,830 per square metre,” explains Mr Dodge. “This is a record price for the area, highlighting the strength in the market and the high interest in this particular property.” Interestingly, it was a neighbour and another local buyer that fought it out for most of the 45 minute-long auction. Mr Wraith adds, “We had a simple but effective marketing campaign, which cost less than $5,000, and delivered a record number of inspections. With the high level of interest, this shows that it’s not always the “big city” agents that get the best prices. As the leading local agent, we know the buyers and have the local contacts.”

Councillors condemn confiscated cow Compiled by Brodie Cowburn C. E. GOMM, ranger at Somerville, stated in the Shire Council Meeting that be had impounded Mr Martin’s cow and had been called everything but a gentleman as a consequence. One of the things said was that he was “a dirty loafer for a dirty job”. That people could say such things of his job was no good to him. On the motion of Crs Unthank and Longmuir it was decided that Martin be written to and told that he must make a public apology, failing which further action would be taken. *** TROOPER F. A Gould, son of Mr and Mrs T. M. Gould, Nolan Street, Frankston, sailed last week for active service abroad. Trooper Gould is among the many brave boys who have gone to fight for their country, leaving his aged parents partly dependent on him. *** UNDER the auspices of the Somerville branch of the Lady Mayoress’ Patriotic League, A Grand concert will be held in the Somerville hall on Saturday evening May 25th. A splendid programme will be presented by the Camberwell Patriotic Players, and a three act comedy ‘The interfering mother-in-law’ will be staged. Proceeds are in aid of the Australian Comforts fund. Prices of admission are front seats 1s 6d, back seats 1s. *** AMONG the returned soldiers who were presented with medals by the Governor General on Friday was Corporal F. McDonald of Langwarrin, who received the Distinguished Con-

duct Medal for gallantry in the field. *** TODAY (Saturday) Mr W. A. Korner will sell, under instructions from Mr C. C. Smith, Lyndos Farm, Langwarrin, the whole of his stock and plant. Full particulars are advertised. *** ON Thursday next, 16th May, at 2pm Messrs Brody and Mason will sell, at their rooms, Bay Street Frankston, a quantity of household furniture, tanks, sundries, and a lot of useful oddments. *** THE work of clearing the trees and rubbish from Wells Street towards the Mile Bridge, along the Melbourne Road, preparatory to planting an Honor Avenue, is progressing, and in order to expedite the work of planting the tree. A meeting is called for Friday evening next to discuss the matter, when it is hoped there will be a good attendance of those interested. *** UNDER the auspices of the Wattle Club, a poster ball was held in the Frankston Mechanics’ on Friday evening, May 3rd, and, as is usual with Wattle Club fixtures, it proved an unqualified success. The attendance was large, visitors being present from all parts of the district, and numerous fancy costumes were in evidence, a great number of city firms as well as a couple of local business places, being tastefully represented. Miss Gray, representing a Red Cross House Badge, secured the lady’s prize, while Mr Wheeler was awarded the prize for scents. As some objection was offered, however, ow-

ing to the fact that Mr Wheeler was costumed as one of the “gentler sex”, he gave the prize back to the club. *** THE little boy Ingle of Moorooduc, who met with such a severe accident, and was unconscious for over a week, is now getting on very well, but will be a long time before he is himself again. *** POLLING in connection with the Flinders by-election takes place today (Saturday). Electors may record their votes between 8am and 8pm The candidates are as follows: Stanley Melbourne Bruce, 59 Collins street. Melbourne, Merchant (Nationalist.) John Joseph Hall, Kingsley street, Elwood, Secretary and Journalist (Farmers’ Union.) Gordon John Holmes, 69 Hawksburn, Solicitor (Labor.) *** CONSTABLE Ryan v Richard Thomas Moore. Mr Utber appeared for the accused, who was charged with stealing four military blankets from Langwarrin Camp. The accused pleaded guilty and said that his lapse had been due to drink. The P.M. said that owing to the fact that the accused had a wife and six children depending on him he would let him off lightly. He would be sentenced to six month imprisonment, sentence to be suspended on his entering into a surety of £25 to be of good behavior for 12 months and finding a surety in a like amount. *** CONSTABLE Ryan v Albert Marks

for failing to send his child to school the required number of days Fined 5s. *** AS the committee of the Presentation to Frankston Volunteers movement decline to give a medal to Private C Batterham, on the ground that he was not a Frankston resident, a number of his friends felt that an injustice was being done, and to show their appreciation of his services for King and Empire, they obtained a medal at their own expense, and it will be forwarded to his sister. The medal, which is gold, and of a very pretty design, is, inscribed “From Frankston friends, to C. Batterham, Allies v Germany War, 1918.” As Private Batterham was a resident of Frankston for over four years and took a most active interest in church and social events at Frankston, it seems unjust that he should be passed over, while presentations have been made to others who do not appear to have had such a just claim. *** AT the last meeting of the Frankston and Hastings Shire Council, Cr. Longmuir presented a statement in connection with Tyabb’s effort in the recent appeal for funds for the Repatriation Fund. The statement showed that the Fruitgrowers’ concert realised £8 16 10; Red Cross Society collections £5 6s; while £25 was already in hand as the result of fruit sold by the Fruitgrowers Association, and a further small sum was to come in, making a grand total to be handed over to the fund of over £40. This splendid result speaks volumes for the wholehearted response made

by Tyabb residents, and all concerned should feel proud of the success that crowned their efforts. *** COLIN McKenzie was charged with travelling on the railways between Carrum and Frankston without a ticket on the 23rd March last. Mr Joseph Dean prosecuted. Mr Cook appeared for the defendant who pleaded not guilty. H. H. Perry, stationmaster at Frankston said that he knew defendant who was a constant traveller. On the 23rd March last he handed him a ticket at the barrier at Frankston, Flinders St. to Carrum. He drew defendants attention to the ticket, and he said had paid for a ticket to Frankston. He told defendant he would have to pay the difference but he said he had paid once and would not pay again. On the payment of costs by defendant, the case was withdrawn the P.M. remarking that the onus was on the purchaser to see that he received the right ticket. *** SEVERAL charges of theft were preferred against Albt Scarborough and Walter Percy Cook. On the application of Mr Utber, who appeared for the accused both of whom pleaded guilty, they were tried together on the first charge, that of having stolen four horse collars a set of breeching, and four pairs of winkers, the property of the State Rivers and Water Supply Commission. *** From the pages of the Mornington Standard, 11 May 1918


Islands in the Streaming – That is What We Are By Stuart McCullough I’M a modern guy. Or, at least, I like to think I am. I do everything I can to stay in touch with an ever-evolving world to avoid being left behind. I’m always friendly at the checkout which is my own version of ‘pay pal’ and have installed a birdbath in the backyard in a bid to truly understand tweeting. For heaven’s sake, I’ve even started drawing emojis in my handwritten correspondence. I’ve also conquered social media by making a special effort to read the newspaper over some unsuspecting soul’s shoulder while on public transport. But despite this unwavering commitment to modernity, I’ll admit there are some things I’m struggling with. My father’s place has bushland and paddocks full of grass. It also has a creek running right through the middle of it. Until 12 months ago, I thought ‘streaming’ was what happens when you attempt to cross the creek but your gumboot gets stuck in the mud and you fall in. But, as it turns out, it has little to do with aquatic misadventures and everything to do with how you watch television. Suffice to say, the world that I knew growing up has very near vanished. As a kid, television stations ruled our lives. We determined what we did around an unbending schedule of programming excellence. What the current generation fails to understand is that back in the seventies and eighties, everything on television was completely awesome. Even the test pattern. This was back before reality television was invented or those weird programs that are little more than a giant advert for a sub-par product you don’t need existed. We were happy to build our lives around the TV Guide to make sure that we missed nothing. It was, I guess, an early example of FOMO before FOMO was even invented. It was an unspoken social contract – we scheduled our lives around a television show so long as television stations kept on giving us amazing TV shows.

That was a long time ago. There’s been a sizeable dip in quality since and free to air television is starting to go the way of the typewriter. These days, it’s all about content on demand. We’re no longer drip-fed installments of our favourite series; they arrive in a bundle to facilitate weekends of unfettered binge watching. It’s probably as unhealthy at is sounds. Some of the best TV shows around don’t survive on regular television and end up appearing in some kind of streaming netherworld where you may or may not find them. It’s so uncertain. There’s so much more stuff now. Whereas in decades gone by, everyone knew which shows were great because we all watched them at the

same time and then discussed them at school the next day, that kind of communal experience is now near extinct. Everyone knew ‘The Fall Guy’ was fantastic because everyone watched it at the same time. It’s more risky now. There’s great stuff out there that you’re expected to find on your own. There’s a very real risk that you may never hear about something truly wonderful and will end up living without it. But there’s a contradiction. On the one hand, we’re left to fend for ourselves. It is, so it seems, our fault if we don’t discover something because we fail to trawl the Internet for hours. However, there are all sorts of rules that apply at a household level for how you engage with the world of

content on demand. The ability to binge-watch doesn’t mean you should, especially when you live with another person. I’ll admit I’m still figuring out the rules as I try to come to terms with streaming. The first thing I’ve learned if that if you’re watching a series with your spouse, you can only watch it when you’re together. Skipping ahead a few episodes is strictly prohibited. Even if done in secret, you will surely be found out and nothing is quite so painful as an accusation that you’ve already watched an episode. Especially when it’s true. Whether it’s because you’ve made the mistake of scrolling through something on your phone or – worse still – have said something along the lines of ‘this is a good bit’, your failure to wait will be found out. The second thing I’ve learned is that these rules are extremely flexible. If I continue watching something on my own, it’s a betrayal. However, if I get home and find out that my wife has watched all five seasons of ‘Friday Night Lights’ without me, it’s my fault for having left the house. In fact, one the challenges that couples face is how to cultivate a viewing list to enjoy together in a world that encourages you to make a list that’s all your own. The various devices that now rule over us encourage this separation. Families once gathered around TV sets like an open fire. Now everyone can be off in their rooms watching whatever they please through an Ipad. I’m not sure it’s a good thing. There are nights when we struggle to choose. I understand that – technically speaking – delivering the power of choice to the viewer is a good thing. I’m just not sure I know what to do with that kind of awesome responsibility. There’s a lot to be said for being drip fed entertainment on a regular, predictable basis. It’s a lot to take in. I might go sit by the creek at my father’s place and think a while. stuart@stuartmccullough.com Frankston Times 7 May 2018

Bonbeach best Bombers in nailbiter DIVISION ONE

A four point thriller between Bonbeach and Frankston Bombers was the standout of a number of tight contests in MPNFL Division One football this weekend. Three goals from former Sydney Swan Trent Dennis-Lane saw Bonbeach narrowly defeat a Bombers side that held the lead at each of the major breaks in the game. With a comfortable 15 point advantage at three-quarter time, Frankston looked well and truly home before a final quarter comeback saw Bonbeach take advantage of Frankston’s poor goal kicking accuracy and end the game just ahead, winning 10.10 (70) to 8.18 (66). The four points earned by Bonbeach saw them jump up the ladder to sixth place with three wins and three losses after an inconsistent start to their season. They will be hoping the momentum from the win on Saturday will carry into next week, when they take on last placed Mornington at Alexandra Park. Despite not quite getting across the line, it was Mornington who produced perhaps the most impressive performance across the weekend, nearly pulling off an almighty upset in a hearty effort against top of the ladder Frankston YCW. Frankston YCW, dominant premiers of the 2017 Peninsula League and undefeated so far this season, will have expected to brush aside the lowly Mornington with ease. Mornington have yet to register a win all season and were coming off a comprehensive 10 goal loss to Sorrento last week, but this seemed not to faze an inspired Mornington at all. To the shock of the home crowd, their side went into quarter time in front before going on to expand their lead to 23 points by the half time break. YCW were not doing themselves any favours either, and by three-quarter time had kicked a dismal three goals and 13 behinds. Unfortunately for Mornington, Frankston YCW were able to find another gear for the last quarter, holding their opponents goalless and kicking five of their own to overrun Mornington 7.12 (54) to 8.18 (66). Mornington’s courageous effort was headlined by a star performance from Jackson Calder, who booted four goals in his side’s valiant attempt at victory. The side will be looking to turn these positive signs into a positive result, and will take a lot of confidence into their clash against Bonbeach at home next week. At Eric Bell Reserve, another side was made

to rue poor form in front of goal as Pines went down at home to Sorrento Sharks. Pines struggled to recover from an incredibly frustrating first quarter, in which they failed to register a goal but managed to put six behinds on the scoreboard. Sorrento also struggled for accuracy in front of goals, but ultimately three goals from Luke Tapscott saw them come out as victors, winning 10.18 (78) to Pines’ 8.19 (67). At Rosebud’s Olympic Oval the home side nearly secured their second victory of the season in a neck and neck battle with Edithvale-Aspendale, but ultimately fell short by just seven

points, losing 10.13 (73) to 11.14 (80) thanks to three goals from Edithvale-Aspendale’s Brent Bowden. It was also another tough week for Seaford, who were easily overrun at home by third placed Mt Eliza. After an almighty battle that saw them only walk away with a draw last week, Seaford were not able to bounce back to find a positive result on Saturday. The club has now failed to secure a win since Round One, and is in danger of slipping further down the ladder against second place Sorrento next weekend at David McFarlane Reserve.

IT is with great sadness that we announce we have lost our colleague, Andrew Kelly, to cancer. Andrew wrote sport for Mornington Peninsula News Group since 2012, but had been a fixture of local football for decades. He called football for RPPFM, and was widely known as the ‘voice’ of footy on the peninsula. Andrew was diagnosed with cancer early this year, and died on Saturday morning, 5 May. Andrew’s family put out the following statement: “Thank you from the bottom of our hearts to everyone who messaged Toe Punt to support, encourage and send best wishes over the course of his battle with cancer. “We are grateful he was able to see how loved and admired he was in the football community. “He sadly lost the fight this morning at 9am. He fought hard and was dignified to the end and will forever be in our hearts.” Despite his illness, and in the end the dire prognosis, Andrew continued to write. Apart from one week missed during his cancer battle, Andrew wrote up until the week before his death, only unable to file stories on local football last week due to his deteriorating health. It was a testament to his dedication, and his love for his sport and the community in which it is played. Our condolences to the Kelly family.

Dromana trump Chelsea in clash of undefeated sides DIVISION TWO

THE top of the ladder clash between Dromana and Chelsea was the headliner of the MPNFL Division Two competition this weekend, in a match that saw two sides both sitting undefeated going into Round Five do battle. The much anticipated contest took place at Chelsea Reserve, and saw the home side start strong to go into quarter time in front by a goal. Despite these early signs of fight, it did not take much longer for Dromana to stamp their authority on the game, eventually running away to a comfortable lead they would hold for the rest of the match. Once Dromana got going there was little that could be done to stop them, with Ben Holmes and Ethan Johnstone kicking three goals each to take their season totals to an impressive 16 and 17 respectively. Dromana’s Joshua Bateman also joined contributed to the scoreboard with a three goal performance of his own, which helped his side record an easy 7.10 (52) to 13.16 (94) victory. The clash between Tyabb and Crib Point was also an intriguing one, for entirely different reasons. Unlike the other top of the ladder battle on Saturday, this match featured two sides yet to record a win four

rounds into the season. Both clubs have struggled this season, and entered the clash desperate to break their ducks. The match however was almost over as soon as it began, as a seven goal to zip first quarter saw Tyabb take an unassailable lead into quarter time. After going into the first break 48 points down, Crib Point fought hard to keep the result respectable, and only ended up going down by 55 points with the final score 15.12 (102) to 6.11 (47). At RJ Rowley Reserve, Rye were forced to work hard at home to best Langwarrin. The kangas were kept in the game by Jesse Murphy, who finished with five goals to add to his tally of four goals in each of his last two games, but ultimately he was not able to drag his side to victory. Despite Langwarrin only trailing by two points ten minutes into the final quarter, Rye comfortably kicked away to record an impressive victory to take them to sixth on the ladder, winning 13.17 (95) to 11.8 (74). Elsewhere on Saturday, Devon Meadows struggled at home in a low scoring affair against Red Hill, who recorded their third consecutive win after a shaky start to the season. Red Hill led throughout the day, and

although the gap had been closed to just ten points at three-quarter time, Red Hill managed to hold on to record a comfortable win 7.6 (48) to 9.12 (66), with Harry Wynn-Pope named as the best on ground. It was also another disappointing weekend for lowly 11th placed Pearcedale who were easily beaten by a freely scoring Karingal side. Karingal’s Matthew Stanley may have impressed last week with five goals, but this Saturday bested that effort with an incredible seven goal haul to sink a Pearcedale side that were never a chance. Karingal piled on 20 goals to wrap up a comprehensive victory, 12.8 (80) to 20.18 (138). Hastings’ Thomas Barclay Oval played host to the final match of the day, which saw the home side visited by Somerville. The best on ground on the day was Hastings’ Luke Hewitt, who proved the difference between the two sides. His five goals took his tally for the season to 20 and took his side to a comfortable victory. The final score was Hasting 11.12 (78) besting Sorrento 7.12 (54), a result which will fill Hastings with confidence leading up to their big clash against unbeaten Dromana away from home next Saturday.

Jamieson resigns as Mornington coach SOCCER

By Craig MacKenzie ADAM Jamieson ended a 10-year association with Mornington when he resigned on Saturday morning. The news rocked the Dallas Brooks Park outfit as it prepared to do battle with visitors South Springvale in their State 1 South-East fixture. Jamieson cited work commitments as the principle reason for his departure. “I have a lot going on with business and I can’t give Mornington 100 percent commitment anymore,” he said. “It’s been my second home for a long period but I just knew that my time had come. “I want to thank the committee for everything they’ve done for me. It’s been a brilliant place to be and I hope that the work we have started can be continued.” Jamieson, 41, played with Skye Rovers and Frankston United as a junior and his senior career involved stints with Caulfield City, Springvale City and Frankston Pines. Injury ended his career when he was 23 and he switched to coaching at Frankston Pines, the senior club he’d played for the longest. He assisted Stan Webster and Craig Lewis until the latter took up a job offer in Dubai part of the way through the 2006 Victorian Premier League season. Jamieson stepped into the breach and although Pines were relegated they bounced straight back the following year by winning the Division One championship in Jamieson’s first full season as a senior coach. He left Pines after seven games of the 2008 season and in 2009 took over the reins at Mornington taking the club from Provisional League to the verge of NPL ranks and winning State 1 championships in 2015 and 2016. “It’s a really sad day for the club,” Mornington president Matt Cameron said. “Adam’s been much more than a coach, he’s been my best mate and he’s a legend here so Saturday was a very emotional day for all of us. “That’s typical of him though – he felt he couldn’t give his best to the club so he stepped aside. That’s the sort of man he is.” Assistant coach Dale White took charge when Mornington comfortably accounted for South Springvale 3-0 last weekend. So far the season has proven to be a pointless exercise for the visitors and their cause wasn’t helped when Sam-

my Orritt converted from the penalty spot in the 17th minute. Veteran striker Wayne Gordon scored twice in the second half, the first from a long ball by keeper Liam Little which sent Orritt down the right and his cross to the far post was headed in. Orritt also was the provider for Gordon’s second which sealed the issue. In NPL2 news Langwarrin defied the odds to defeat North Geelong 3-1 at Lara’s Elcho Park on Saturday. Injuries had decimated Langy’s defence with Luke Burgess, Andy McIntyre and captain Boris Ovcin all sidelined along with suspended midfielder Mat Luak.

Frankston Times 7 May 2018

Viktor Medini lined up at right back with Jon Guthrie at left back and Dylan Kilner made his NPL debut alongside Andy McLean in the heart of defence. North Geelong had dumped Langy out of the FFA Cup in late March and went into the contest expecting a win. But the Croatian-backed club didn’t reckon on two smash-and-grab goals from Liam Baxter in the 34th minute and Callum Goulding in the 42nd minute that gave the visitors a 2-0 halftime lead. Langy went further ahead when big Sam KIepac controlled the ball on his chest then volleyed home to make it 3-0 in the 58th minute.


North Geelong hit back through Ryan Opperman two minutes later but a man-of-the-match performance from Kilner and some outstanding saves from Langy custodian Robbie Acs gained a valuable three points for the visitors. In State 2 South-East news both Frankston Pines and Peninsula Strikers suffered 3-1 losses away from home to Knox City and Mooroolbark respectively. A Jordan Avraham overhead kick put Knox ahead in the 19th minute of their clash with Pines but the visitors levelled in the 39th minute when CJ Hodgson was brought down by Knox keeper Colin McCormack and converted from the spot. Former Pines striker Matthew Hames made it 2-0 in the 58th minute when he charged onto a long ball and lobbed Pines keeper Jarrod Nardino and Hames’ second goal in the 81st minute ended Pines’ resistance. “I think a few people got intimidated even before we kicked a ball,” said Pines gaffer Paul Williams. “But I can’t take anything away from them (Knox) because they thoroughly deserved their win.” Strikers started the season eyeing promotion but find themselves in the relegation zone after four losses in five games. Sean Perrin (17th minute), George Aratzis (65th) and Ross Clark (69th) scored for previously winless Mooroolbark while Ryan Thompson (61st) scored for Strikers. Saturday’s State 3 South-East derby ended in a 3-1 home win for Skye United over Seaford United. Seaford surprised its opponent with a superb strike from just outside the area by Adrian Pace in the 37th minute but a Cam Leopold effort from 30 metres dipped and swerved past Seaford keeper Ugur Erdem a minute before the interval. A sweeping Skye move five minutes into the second half involving Marcus Collier, Jason Nowakowksi and Caleb Nicholes ended with a first-time Nicholes shot which Erdem did well to block with his feet. The deadlock was broken in the 69th minute when a superb chip from the right of the area by Daniel Attard picked out an unmarked Nicholes who headed home at the far post. When Nicholes was allowed time to chest the ball down then turn and strike a low shot into the far corner in the 75th minute the contest was over. Seaford huffed and puffed but desperately needs striker Dylan Waugh back from suspension and although

Skye will be content with three points it will need to improve if it is to mount a serious promotion campaign. Meanwhile Baxter lost 3-0 away to Hampton Park United in their State 4 South clash on Saturday. A forgettable first half was followed by a controversial second period. In the 65th minute an attempted clearance by Heath Goss cannoned off Hampton Park’s Ahmad Suleiman for the opener. In the 75th minute Peter Otto was allowed to continue from an offside position and although Baxter keeper James Foster did well to parry Otto converted the rebound to make it 2-0. Baxter boss Francis Beck was livid and his protestations earned him a send-off. To make matters worse the same linesman again failed to flag in the 88th minute when three Hampton Park players were offside and Nicholas Marcinkowski was able to waltz past Foster and make it 3-0. In NPLW news three of Southern United’s under-age teams played against Bayside United at Kingston Heath Soccer Complex on Saturday. The under-12s drew 2-2 with Southern’s goals coming from Rhiannon Kelleher and Kayla McLeod while the under-14s won 2-1 with both goals scored by Candy Kilderry, the first from the penalty spot. Southern’s under-16s staged a remarkable comeback to down Bayside 3-2. Southern was 2-0 down but two goals from Jas Ristevski and a Haylea Porter goal turned this contest on its head. Southern keeper Rianna Tann played a crucial part in the victory with an outstanding save at 2-2. Southern’s under-19s and seniors took on Bayside on Sunday. Here are next weekend’s games: FRIDAY 8.30pm: Collingwood City v Skye Utd (Kevin Bartlett Reserve). SATURDAY 3pm: Langwarrin v Altona Magic (Lawton Park), Morwell Pegasus v Mornington (Ronald Reserve), Frankston Pines v Berwick City (Monterey Reserve), Seaford Utd v Monbulk Rangers (North Seaford Reserve), Sandringham v Baxter (R.J.

Men’s Sharks streak ends, Steelers dominant BASKETBALL

THE Southern Peninsula Sharks division two Men’s side has suffered their first loss for the season to the ninthplaced Maccabi Warriors in round six of the Big V. What was slightly unexpected, the Warriors clawed their way back after trailing by nine points in the third quarter to sink a last-minute jumpshot for an upset one-point victory (65-64) on Saturday 28 April. The Warriors tied it up with just over two minutes to go and as the Sharks tried to bide their time and throw up an unsuccessful shot, Jared Mintez dished it up to team mate Andrew Sharp who nailed the final shot of the game and deflated the Sharks undefeated balloon in the final 45 seconds. The Sharks’ State Championship Women’s side also suffered a narrow loss to the visiting Waverley Falcons (72-76) after a 16 to 6 last quarter from the visitors. The Falcons locked in and tightened the screws on the Sharks’ usually up-tempo offence to secure a four-point victory with the Sharks’ Peyton Little (18 pts) and Jaz Shelley (17 pts, 8 ast) putting in solid performances. Shelley said they were probably the underdogs heading into the match but couldn’t be happier with the way the side played. “I think we have definitely surprised the league so far with the team’s average age being around 20,” she said. “They (Waverley Falcons) just

out-bullied us towards the end of the game and were stronger and bigger than us. We did very well to keep it up against them, but we couldn’t maintain it in the last 10 minutes or so. “We have a reasonably tough game next week [against McKinnon Cougars] so it should be a good test for us.” In the Men’s division one, Western Port Steelers (92-82) ran away with a 10-point victory over the home side, Warrnambool Seahawks, while the Chelsea Gulls suffered their second loss for the season against Warrandyte Venom (71-86). Majority of the focus was on the return of Nathan Sobey (21pts in 40mins) to the arc for Warrnambool but the visiting Steelers started out with a 27 to 16 run and never looked back. Dylan Travis (32 pts, 5 treys) racked up another 30-plus points game to help provide the Steelers with their fourth straight victory. Scores were tied at half-time between Chelsea and Warrandyte but after suffering a couple of losses the Venom came out and dominated the second half with Sprewell (33 pts) and Moore (24 pts) opening the winning margin to 15 points. In the Women’s division one, the Chelsea Gulls dominated Warrandyte Venom (89-58) by more than 30 points, while the Steelers were defeated by Warrnambool (55-40) in a low scoring contest. The opening quarter was full of excitement in the Gulls match against Venom as it concluded with the Gulls

leading by one point (26-25) at the end of the quarter. But the Venom weren’t able to keep up with Chelsea as they managed to put just seven points on the board in the second quarter. From there on the Gulls were in the driver’s seat and added space upon space in the third and fourth quarters. Apart from the opening quarter in the Steelers game against Warrnambool, the Steelers could only put together single digits on the board in the remaining quarters. The Mermaids joined them in the fourth but stuck it out for a 15-point win to finish their weekend. The Mornington Breakers women’s side went down by a similar margin to Blackburn (64-50) as the home team took full advantage of the Breakers’ slow start to lead by nine points after the first break. A tough struggle after quarter time provided an entertaining match, with the Breakers outscoring the hosts in the end of the second half. The buffer was enough for the Vikings to add their third win for the season. Ashleigh Wright was a board off a double with 16pts for the Breakers, as Bridget Gamble and Fiona Darnell collected 14 and 11 points respectively.

Waves find their touch, Saints struggle in opener NETBALL

PENINSULA Waves have come off a 15-goal defeat to the rebranded Hawks Netball Club, to secure a dominant victory over the Sovereigns in round two of the VNL Championships on Wednesday 2 May. Peninsula Waves championship coach Jess Whitfort said the first round was like “feeling your way through the dark” as it was the Waves’ first time together as a squad. “It was an interesting match as a few of the new recruits had been in and out of training, so we were still trying to get a feel of the team together, and where we want the ball to be,” she said. “In the second round, we wanted to come out strong and we really worked well together as a team.” “The Sovereigns have a relatively new side as well, so we really capitalised on that and I think we put in a great game.” The Waves’ championship side is beginning to find their “connection” on the court which they were lacking in the opening round against the Hawks, who were still riding the high of making their VNL debut. While the Waves’ division one (41-48) and championship grades (43-58) fell to the Hawks in round one, with a seven and fifteen goal loss in their respective games, the Waves’ youth team proved to be too strong for the Hawks as they left the court with a seven-goal winning margin (40-33). Just four days after their round one match-up, the Waves faced the Sovereigns in round two where the Sovereigns took ownership of the netball court in the under-19s (49-59) and division one (48-71) grades. But the Waves got their revenge in the Championship match where they maintained a strong lead throughout to eventually open up a 46-goal winning margin. The shooters ended up scoring 71 goals from their 100 attempts and ended the game at 71-25. Division One coach Lindy Dowell named Claudia Whitfort (wing defence and centre) and Alex Maher (goal attack and goal shooter) as “absolute standouts” in her team last week, while Jess Whitfort said championship captain

Jess Maher (goal keeper) was “best on court” after her stellar performance on former Vixen player, Kim Commane. The Southern Saints also entered their first two rounds for the VNL season but without such success. In round one, the under-19s and championship matches were highly competitive against Boroondara Express as the sides went goal-forgoal throughout the games. Despite remaining evenly matched, both of the Saints’ sides were eventually overcome by Boroondara being defeated by six and five goals respectively. The Southern Saints struck back with a convincing win by their division one side with the final score finishing at 54-42. The Saints walked away from round two no better, with three losses under their belt against City West Falcons. The Falcons defence shut down the Saints’ ability to feed the netball into the goal circle as they finished up with victories in the under-19s (38-48), division one (56-57) and championship (48-68) matches. The Saints remain hopeful for round three where they face Melbourne University Lightning, while the Waves will prepare for their game against the Ariels.
