Market call to end golf losses

ing to cost $20 million, which we’re not doing because we can’t afford it.

WITH an estimated $1.5 million needed over the next five years to fix “ageing infrastructure” Mornington Peninsula Shire Council is now looking for ways of making money from its golf course at Mount Martha.

The expressions of interest (EOI) campaign comes nearly four years after council hired consultants and sought ideas from the community for ways to “develop a vision and long term plan” for the 50 hectare, 18-hole course (Golf course future to the fore, The News 4/11/20).

The latest move to find ways of paying for the golf course off Forest Drive was agreed to at council’s 29 April public meeting.

This time around the EOI process will “gather golfing market information and capability” that, as already suggested, may include mini golf, driving ranges and such “non-traditional” activities as food trucks, moonlight cinemas, a restaurant, functions and short term accommodation.

“Long term financial challenges for council indicates that it may no longer be viable to continue to operate the golf course at a deficit, which is likely to increase in the coming years due to the increased salaries, maintenance and capital works costs,” property and commercial services acting manager Gail Mifsud said in a report to council.

About 45,000 rounds of golf are played at the public course each year but, according to Cr David Gill, the shire is effectively paying $9000 a year for each of Mount Martha Golf Club’s 250 members.

He said the peninsula was home to 17 golf courses, including the shire-controlled but privately managed one at Devilbend, Moorooduc.

“I can’t get change rooms for women in Red Hill ward for sport. There’s an imbalance of funding towards one side of the peninsula,” Gill said.

“I don’t see that we can afford to have our community believing that we can run a golf course at a loss.

“I would like not seeing this become another Briars where we have a master plan that is go-

“We’re just getting into a worst position [financially], but we’re still holding out the pie in the sky that we’ll provide this golf course for the few hundred club members … as the officers say, [it’s] a deficit that we can’t afford.”

Cr Despi O’Connor said all of the shire’s sporting facilities ran at a loss.

“They are run because our community wants to see those things in our community. That’s what we do, that’s what we provide as a council,” she said.

“The call for expressions of interest at Mount Martha golf course “is not about council sinking money into this facility, it’s about going out to the market and finding out if there are people out there who want to partner with us to make this a grand facility.”

A club member had told her that the golf course was “about connection, and people who go and play golf to connect to each other”.

“It is the most stunning place on the peninsula in terms of a public setting [with views to Melbourne]. And it’s a public golf course, so this is really important to all of us,” O’Connor said.

Cr Anthony Marsh said calling for expressions of interest with a view to making the golf course economically viable “should have been done three years ago, not six months before [the October council] election”.

“If the process yields no good opportunity or options to make the course viable, there will need to be a tough conversation about that at the appropriate time,” he said.

“In terms of elections … we’ve got 149 days to make a decision as of today. There’s plenty of time to do this and to make a decision off the back of it.

“The club is operating at a loss but, as Cr O’Connor said, so does basically every sporting facility we have. This is trying to do the opposite, it’s saying, ‘what commercial opportunities are out there to make it more viable’ and, I guess, not such an impost on the budget.” Marsh hoped for “some really creative options” that would be “exciting to both the community and council from a financial perspec

tive”.

Parking trial fines not ‘fair and just’

MORNINGTON Peninsula Shire

Council has been accused of not dealing with many of the requests it has received to review parking fines.

Council Watch, a lobby group that scrutinises councils on spending, governance and decision making, is seeking a meeting with CEO John Baker and the mayor Cr Simon Brooks to discuss the shire’s paid parking scheme and the fine review process.

Council Watch president Dean Hurlston said it had forwarded dozens of fine review applications directly to the CEO without response.

Hurlston said the applicants were being “denied justice”.

“No acknowledgment and no personal responsibility for any of the emails sent to him,” he said.

“No senior manager has taken responsibility and staff do not seem to know who to refer the complaints to. The parking trial is a total shambles.”

Hurlston said Council Watch was taking on the paid parking pilot concerns for fine recipients because it believed fines should be “fair and just”.

“This is a monumental disaster. The least [they] can do is to provide ex-

tensions and send review documents to each one.”

Council Watch has major concerns about what it alleges is the “discriminatory” nature of the paid parking pilot, which relies on drivers having access to, and understanding, the technology. The watchdog is also calling for better signs at trial locations at Mornington, Flinders and Sunnyside Beach, Mount Eliza.

In an unsigned council response seen by The News, Hurlston was informed that because of “privacy obligations” council could respond to applications forwarded by others unless it received a signed authorisation from the fine recipient.

Statistics released by the shire in March show that it had collected $347,721 since the beginning of the paid parking trial. This amount included $96,360 in fines (Demand for refund of parking fines, The News 25/ 3/24). Liz Bell

MORNINGTON Peninsula karate champion Ally Lourensz is celebrating with coach Peter Hollowood her recent success as the Oceania Senior Champion in the under 55 kilogram division.

Lourensz, pictured, of Mount Eliza, emerged victorious in her kumite (sparring) category at the prestigious Oceania Karate Championships held in Sydney on 26 April.

Competing against opponents from across Oceania, the 18-year-old demonstrated great technique and skill.

Hollowood, of Peter Hollowood Martial Arts, Mornington said Lourensz was a hard worker who was loyal to her sport.

“Her dedication to her craft and her commitment to improving her skills is admirable,” he said.

“She is setting a great example to other sports people that hard work and determination is a great jumping board for future success.”

Patterns lead to clothing industry future

GROWING up in Rosebud was a confusing time for 28-year-old artist Shan Primrose, who – like many young people - was questioning her identity, her place in the world, and her future.

But one constant in her journey of self-discovery was a love for creating colourful, vibrant images that spoke of her individuality, curiosity and energy for life.

Now, after a decade of honing her creative skills and working with artists all over the world, Primrose, who has Burmese and Australian heritage, is celebrating landing her “dream” collaboration with clothing brand Dangerfield. Her bold, bright designs are expected to appear in stores in the coming weeks.

It’s been a long and exciting road from Rosebud to a global platform, with challenges and incredible highs along the way.

“I really love the peninsula, but back when I was a young female of colour at school, there really wasn’t an outlet or a platform for young artists,” she said.

“I had to leave at that stage of my life, but now I’d love to show all young people that anything is possible If you follow your dreams.”

Primrose says that although confused about her identity as a teenager, she had support from some key people that helped guide her to where she is today.

“I was a very conflicted young teen. Fortunately, I had an incredible art teacher called Jenny Mann [at Rosebud Secondary College] who saw potential

in my art. She introduced me to Frida Kahlo, who was the first woman of colour artist that I knew of,” she said.

“By this stage I knew I wanted to pursue art as a career. I sold my first commission that year, and the next year painted my first large scale mural on the peninsula at age 17.”

Now based in Newcastle, New South Wales, Primrose has been creating and teaching for 12 years, after completing her Bachelor of Visual Art and Design at the Australian Catholic University in Sydney in 2018 and undertaking an artist residency in Pueblo, Mexico, the following year.

It was while overseas, she says, that she began exploring self-identity and the “complexities” of her cultural backgrounds.

"After returning to Australia and working on many projects with brands like Converse, Platypus Shoes and Splendour in the Grass, Primrose launched her debut solo show Dog’s Breakfast in 2021 at two separate showings.

One exhibition was held on the peninsula at The Factory Creative Studios, Mornington.

This was a very special occasion as her art teachers from her former school in Rosebud came to the opening event. Then in May 2023 she embarked on a second overseas residency in Naples, Italy, for three weeks, and used the time to develop her skills and explore new mediums and techniques.

“It hasn’t been easy, but I want other young people to know that opportunities are out there,” Primrose said.

Digging in for koalas

MORNINGTON Peninsula Koala Conservation Group volunteers dug into the season’s tree planting program on Friday (3 May).

The tree planting day in Balnarring also marked Wild Koala Day with animal enthusiasts and conservationists from around the world raising awareness of the pressures on koala habitat and health.

The volunteer peninsula koala group is dedicated to increasing the tree canopy on the peninsula and protecting koalas and other wildlife.

We’re working on a Strategy to help to help tackle the growing housing crisis on the Peninsula.

The proposed Strategy focuses on collecting development contributions for social housing, which is housing provided by the State Government or registered agencies for eligible households at subsidised and affordable rents. The draft Strategy recommends a mandatory, municipal-wide 3.3% contribution rate for most new developments on the Peninsula. We’d like your feedback on this and other options outlined in the draft Strategy. We need a diversity of views to help Council make an informed decision.

Community help

SOUTHERN Peninsula Commu-

nity Support centre director Jeremy Maxwell was last week visited by Rosebud police officers Sergeant Daniel Patton and Senior Constable Melissa Daly who wanted to hear about the centre’s work in supporting low income families and individuals.

The support centre is one of three on the Mornington Peninsula dedicated to supporting people in need in a warm and non judgemental environment.

The trained and experienced staff at the Rosebud based centre can help people in financial hardship with food vouchers, financial aid, pantry staples, fresh food bags, transport, medical needs and advice.

To donate or support the centre call 5986 1285 or email admin@spcsic. org

Thoughts wanted

THE Victoria Police community and sentiment survey is now open for people to share their views on policing and safety.

The survey results will help police understand what the community cares about most and will help to find ways to tackle them.

Police want to know how people feel about safety in their area; residents’ ideas on how to improve the work police do; and how communities want to engage with police.

Fill out the survey before 31 May at bit.ly/4dlbUyb

Road safety

MORNINGTON Peninsula police are reminding drivers to prioritise safety

and remain vigilant as National Road Safety Week started on Sunday and runs until 12 May.

Police have identified a number of the most common factors contributing to road accidents, including low key speeding; low key drink driving; failure to obey road signs; distractions, including mobile phones

So far this year 96 people have been killed on Victorian roads and in the past decade more than 80 people have died on Mornington Peninsula roads.

The National Heavy Vehicle Regulator (NHVR) and the Safer Austral-

ian Roads and Highways (SARAH) Group are also reminding drivers to prioritise safety behind the wheel, in a bid to drive down road trauma.

The NHVR is reminding light vehicle drivers to:

n Leave two lanes for trucks when they are turning.

n Give trucks extra space: Trucks require longer braking distances and take a lot longer to slow down and stop than cars.

n Avoid lingering in a trucks blind spot: Trucks have larger blind spots than cars.

State moves for new powers to suspend councillors

THE state government will have greater powers to punish municipal councillors if proposed changes to the Local Government Act 2020 are approved.

The state government introduced a Bill last week to reform local government processes. If the changes pass, the state government will have more control over councils after the October local government elections.

The proposed changes will hand the state government more power to step in and sanction councillors found to have committed acts of misconduct. A uniform code of conduct will also be written to apply to Victorian councils.

The Bill states that the local government minister can suspend a councillor for a year if they are “creating a serious risk to the health and safety of councillors, council staff, or other persons or is preventing the council from performing its functions, having received a report from a municipal monitor or a Commission of Inquiry which found that to be the case”.

Arbiters will also be able to suspend councillors for up to three months under the proposed changes instead of the present maximum one month.

In a statement, the state government said “since the last council elections in 2020, 56 councillors have resigned

and 11 councils have had municipal monitors appointed, with one council suspended and one dismissed as a result of governance issues.” The statement read that the Bill will “introduce stronger sanctions for councillor misconduct and improved processes to resolve conduct matters earlier. The minister for local government will also have strengthened powers to deal with councillors who are putting health and safety at risk or are preventing their council from performing its functions.”

In February, Cr Susan Bissinger was suspended from Mornington Peninsula Shire Council for 31 days after being found to have “engaged in misconduct” by state government-appointed arbiter Joel A Silver. Bissinger said she had done nothing wrong and refused to apologise (Suspended without apology, The News 26/2/24).

“Victorians deserve councils that represent them and meet their needs – our reforms will enhance governance and accountability across all our councils. Our reforms will create a uniform code of conduct across all councillors and introduce mandatory training, supporting councils to best represent the communities they serve,” Local Government Minister Melissa Horne said.

Exceptional care in the heart of Mount Eliza

JOHN Matthies and his family have been designing award- winning, luxury boutique residential accommodation for people requiring aged care for more than 60 years and are among Victoria’s longest-serving providers.

John is no stranger to providing care for people. His mother was a registered nurse, and back in the ‘60s they often had people who needed care stay in their family home. Her passion was ensuring that each resident received exceptional care, and she passed that commitment on to her children.

The values John inherited from his mother remain around the residents’ care. Treat people how you like to be treated, and he carries this principle with him today in every aspect of being a leading aged care service provider.

Care Group

AACG’s facilities give people high-quality, state-of-the-art accommodation they would love to reside in at the heart of the community they currently live in, making it easier for family and friends to visit regularly.

These premium facilities are designed for people who are more accustomed to high-end comfort and can spend their golden years enjoying these comforts without sacrificing their lifestyle. These are all things John looks forward to enjoying himself one day.

Sheppard will sing two concerts with the VOX Peninsula in what will be a family affair as his grandmother also sings in the choir.

The 40-member VOX Peninsula will be under musical director Rupert Balint Smith in a program called Venice to Vienna and Songs of Peace.

The choir was formed last year and put on its first concert in November.

Proceeds from the concerts will go towards helping refugee children through the charity Grandmothers for Refugees.

The concerts will emphasis youth and feature Oratorios for Orphans written and composed by Vivaldi for the Venice Ospidale for abandoned females. The concerts will also include excerpts from Handel's Messiah and works for peace composed by Brahms, Mendelssohn, Liszt and Douglas.

Accompanist Heather Wickes has been accompanist for several Melbourne choirs and managed the Australian Youth Choir.

The first concert will be at The Anglican Church Mount Eliza on Sunday 26 May at 2.30pm and the second will be at the new Flinders Hall on Sunday 2 June, also at 2.30pm. Tickets are $30 and include refreshments which will be served during the intermission.

The low down on fire safety

GET down low was the message to children from Tyabb Fire Brigade recently, when brigade members visited Bambini Child Care Services in Somerville for the second year in a row, assisted by Hastings Fire Brigade’s Fire Safe Kids presenter.

The children learnt some key fire safety messages and had an opportunity to dress as a firefighter and have a go on the tanker.

Anyone who would like to visit the brigade, or have the brigade do a presentation can contact the crew on Facebook.

Taking a walk and talk to help animals

RSPCA Victoria inspectors will join pet owners at the Mornington Peninsula Million Paws Walk in Hastings on Sunday 26 May.

Last year, 808 walkers and 518 dogs took part in the peninsula walk, raising more than $24,200 to help the RSPCA end cruelty to animals.

Each year the organisation investigates more than 3000 animal cruelty reports across the south east region, with 508 animals being seized or surrendered to inspectors.

Peninsula-based senior inspector Maree Crabtree said there would be several inspectors on the walk available to speak to residents and answer questions.

“If you are wanting to know what a day in the life of an inspector entails or how to become an RSPCA Inspector, the team will be more than happy to chat,” she said.

This year’s RSPCA’s Million Paws Walk is also marking its 30th anniversary with thousands of dogs and their owners on pavements and tracks across the country.

Registrations for the 30th Annual Million Paws Walk are open at millionpawswalk.com.au.

The peninsula walk will be held at the Fred Smith Reserve, Marine Parade, Hastings.

The event will start at 9am, with the walk starting at 11am, and festivities finishing at 2pm.

In the Spotlight

Frankston’s vibrant South Side Festival is gearing up for its eagerly awaited return, promising an array of captivating events and experiences to dazzle attendees. With an impressive lineup boasting over 45 diverse events and shows, this year’s festival is set to be the most spectacular yet. This marks the third year of the festival, a celebration of arts and culture that brings together local talent, venues, and locations, blending them with the best of the contemporary art scene.

One of the key highlights of this year’s festival is its emphasis on environmental consciousness. Through upcycling fashion workshops and coastal conservation initiatives, South Side aims to inspire positive change and a sense of responsibility towards our surroundings.

Attendees can expect to be transported into a neon wonderland at Frankston’s Beauty Park with the enchanting Neon Fields installation. Meanwhile, visitors can delve into the thoughtprovoking multimedia exhibition “Gender Fluids” at Cube 37, offering a camp spectacle straight from New York.

For those seeking a serene escape, George Pentland Gardens will host a mesmerizing sound installation titled “Bird Spirit Child,” inviting guests to immerse themselves in nature’s harmonies.

But the festival isn’t just about visual and auditory delights; it’s also about challenging perceptions and fostering understanding.

Events like “The Show Goes On” by experimental art collective Pony Cam tackle taboo topics around aging, while BAM Arts presents “Aspect Within,” a joyous production breaking down stereotypes related to disability.

One particularly unique offering is the Human Library, a concept originating in Denmark in 2000 and now established in over 80 countries.

Attendees can “borrow” a person, or a “Human Book,” and engage in conversations about their lived experiences, fostering empathy and understanding.

Presented by the Frankston City Council and proudly supported by EastLink, the South Side Festival promises to be an unforgettable celebration of arts, culture, and community.

Mark your calendars for May 10th to May 19th, 2024, and immerse yourself in the magic of Frankston’s South Side Festival. Visit SouthSideFestival.com.au to book you your festival experience today.

Law change for separating families

IN an environment where family violence, parental separation and child safety are in the spotlight, navigating the Family Court is more important than ever.

The Peninsula Community Legal Centre says separated parents need to understand the family law changes around parenting orders that come in on 6 May,

Family law is the number one problem the centre – which services Frankston and the Mornington Peninsula - deals with, as more than half of its clients request help with family law matters. Many involve family violence.

While most separating parents make their own parenting arrangements, parents can apply to the Federal Circuit and Family Court of Australia for parenting orders where agreement can’t be reached.

PCLC CEO Jackie Galloway said parenting orders covered such issues as how much time a child was to spend with each parent, and who was responsible for making long-term decisions like health care, schools, and religion.

While the courts’ role of always making parenting orders that were in the best interests of the child would remain unchanged, the upcoming reforms aimed to simplify the law and make it more accessible.

“The changes to the law are the result of years of advocacy by victim-survivors of family violence and organisations like ours who work with them,” Galloway said.

“Court data shows that in 2021 – 2022 family violence was alleged in 80 per cent of matters filed in the Federal Circuit and Family Court of Australia. A significant percentage, 66 per cent, involved risk factors such as family violence, child abuse, mental health issues or drug, alcohol

or substance abuse putting a child at risk.

“While issues of risk have long been considered, previously the language of ‘safety’ was not used in the Family Law Act when it came to decisions about parenting.”

Galloway said that under the reforms, “safety” would be a prominent feature. The court would be required to explicitly consider the safety of the child and their carer, along with five other issues in a new, simplified list of factors to consider when determining the parenting arrangements that would be in the best interests of a child.

The changes also highlighted the relevance of family violence orders and past family violence, abuse and neglect when making decisions about future parenting arrangements.

Another major change related to how longerterm decisions were made for children, with the abolition of “the presumption of equal shared parental responsibility”.

Under the old law, it had been presumed to be in the child’s best interests for parents to share decision-making for major long-term issues.

Galloway said the presumption was criticised for many reasons, including diverting attention away from the best interests of the child.

“Another problem was that if a court made an order for equal shared parental responsibility, it also had to decide whether the child should spend equal or ‘substantial/significant’ time with each parent. This led to a common misunderstanding where some parents thought they were legally entitled to 50/50 shared care arrangements and time with their child.

“As a result, some parents, particularly those affected by family violence, were agreeing in their out-of-court agreements to unsafe or unfair arrangements due to misunderstanding the law.

“By removing the word ‘equal’ the new reforms make it clearer that there is no parental

entitlement to equal responsibility or equal time with children under Australian law.

“Who will have parental responsibility is solely guided by what is in the best interests of the child, including safety, and is decided on a case-by-case basis.”

Other changes included children being given a greater voice through independent children’s lawyers meeting with a child; a requirement to consider how parenting arrangements would help an Aboriginal and/or Torres Strait Islander child to experience their culture; and greater powers for the court to prevent systems abuse by making “harmful proceedings” orders for repeated, frivolous applications.

New information sharing arrangements would broaden the scope of information the court can obtain from child protection, police and firearms authorities in order to assess safety risks.

“Most of the changes in the new law will come into effect on 6 May. From then, the changes will apply to all new and existing parenting proceedings, except where the final hearing has already begun,” Galloway said.

“So if you have a family law matter where the final hearing has not started before 6 May, these laws will apply to you.”

Parents who were not before the courts but who were trying to work out parenting arrangements would also need to understand the changes and use the new legal framework in their decision making.

Anyone experiencing family violence or family law problems can contact the Frankstonbased Peninsula Community Legal Centre, based in Frankston, to make a free appointment on 9783 3600 or pclc@pclc.org.au

Rail loop plans on show

BUILDINGS up to 18-storeys tall may be allowed in the area surrounding the planned suburban rail loop station in Cheltenham.

The Frankston line will link to the suburban rail loop at Cheltenham. The new station, walking distance from the existing Southland Station, will be the first in the rail loop.

The SRL has been given authority to draft new planning guidelines for the precincts surrounding SRL stations. The precincts are roughly equivalent to the 1.6 kilometre area around the stations.

Last week, the state government released its plans for the first SRL precincts. The plans show proposed height limits of up to 18 storeys near the new Cheltenham SRL Station.

Victorian Premier Jacinta Allan said that planning changes were needed to accommodate the state’s growing population. “Melbourne is growing fast and with the suburban rail loop we’re making room for thousands of new homes in the right places – close to transport, jobs and services,” she said.

Suburban rail loop minister Danny Pearson said “we’ve taken on board years of community feedback and this is just the next step in a detailed and proper planning process that involves locals every step of the way.”

Towers of up to 40 storeys could be

approved in Box Hill under the SRL’s plan. The state opposition has slammed the proposal - transport infrastructure shadow minister David Southwick said “the suburban rail loop was poorly planned and never properly scrutinised, leaving it with a $21 billion funding shortfall on the first stage alone.”

“Now that even the federal Labor government has walked away from the SRL money pit, the Allan Labor government are trying to jam 40-storey towers into residents’ backyards to make up for their mismanagement,” Southwick said.

The Albanese federal government has so far put in $2.2 billion for the project.

Victorian shadow planning minister James Newbury has urged local governments to advocate against the planned changes. “Communities and councils who oppose the Allan Labor government destroying their amenity need to stand up and use their voices before it is too late,” he said.

SRL East, the first section of the planned rail loop, will link the Frankston line at Cheltenham to the Lilydale line at Box Hill via six new underground stations. It is scheduled to be completed in 2035, and is expected to cost upwards of $30 billion.

A planning scheme amendment will still need to be approved before the proposed changes (pictured right) are applied. The final plans are expected to be exhibited at the end of the year. To view the SRL plans visit srleastvisions. com.au

Going outdoors and learning to nurture nature

YOUNG environmental warriors from Rye Primary School and St Joseph’s Primary, Sorrento had the opportunity to learn about biodiversity and environmental protection under the tutelage of Mornington Peninsula ecologist Gidja Walker OAM.

More than 60 children across three sessions attended the walk and talk about the formation of the bay, and the geology of the area and how that influenced vegetation that grows there.

The Rye school’s principal Lachlan Featherstone said it had been inspiring to see the children listen intensely to what Walker was saying and ask pertinent questions.

“They have certainly learnt a lot from this session”, he said.

St Joseph’s principal Monica O’Shannassy, teachers, friends and Mornington Peninsula Shire staff said they too had “learnt heaps”.

The sessions were made possible through the Friends of Rye Foreshore group receiving a Coastcare grant financed by the Department of Energy, Environment and Climate Change.

The money is being used to support a project to conserve and restore the biodiverse area of Whitecliffs hill and nearby foreshore.

Coordinator Mechelle Cheers said without the grant it would have taken years to remove the woody and other environmental weeds. Accelerating the weed removal meant indigenous speciesincluding moonah and banksia trees, bearded heath, orchids and thyme rice-flower - could germinate and repopulate the area.

The shire’s natural systems department and Naturelinks had also provided support.

Cheers said it was intended that the site would become an education and cultural heritage precinct.

“The 60 plus children who attended the sessions is the start of making that happen,” she said.

The Friends of Rye Foreshore group is having a working bee and recruitment session on Rye foreshore (opposite Steam Restaurant) on Wednesday 15 May from 9.30am to midday. All welcome. Inquiries at 3941rcga@gmail.com

Ian Parsons – Community, Sport, Business and Family

OBITUARY

WELL known Mornington Peninsula resident Ian Parsons passed away at the Caritas Christi in Kew after a long illness. He was 90 years of age. Following a private cremation, a memorial service was held at the Mornington Golf Club on 19 April. The large attendance reflected the regard in which he was held by the local community. ***

Born at the height of the Great Depression, Ian grew up in Essendon with his parents (Jessie and Charlie), his older brother (Mac) and sister (Kay). He enjoyed a rich and busy childhood, in later years speaking fondly as to how happy it was.

Never one to sit still, Ian was a ‘move-and-do’ child who played for several local sports clubs including cricket, football and water polo. Other activities included going to watch Essendon play at Windy Hill and collecting stray match-day footballs that had gone over the fence and into the adjacent state school playground. He loved fishing and swimming in the Moonee Ponds Creek, rabbit shooting at Broadmeadows and Macedon, and gatherings with extended families and friends.

Ian commenced his formal education at Essendon State School during World War Two and he would later recall how the school ground was speckled with dugouts and bomb shelters. Battling severe osteomyelitis in a knee, Ian’s education was disrupted due to time spent in hospital. Nevertheless, and with some tutoring from his schoolteacher aunt, it was a moment of personal pride when his name was one of a handful of students who had qualified to attend Essendon Technical School. There he learnt trade skills including the art of welding in which he became very proficient. He regularly crafted metal pieces for either specific purposes such as hot water systems, or for the home such as glass topped coffee tables. Ian’s work life began as an apprentice plumber in Elgin Street Carlton to which he cycled daily from Essendon.

A highlight of life for young people in the 1950’s was the Moonee Ponds Town Hall dances on Saturday nights. It was there that Ian met his future wife, Melva Heath. They married in 1959 and moved to Mornington to commence what was to become almost 65 years of life together.

The move from Essendon to Mornington saw the establishment of Parsons Plumbing. Then in the 1960’s Ian established Parsons Hot Water Boilers. This was a manufacturing business spawned by the nascent broiler chicken industry following a request from Golden Poultry to design a large-scale heating system for sheds that housed thousands of chickens. The business quickly diversified and provided heating systems Australiawide in commercial areas including abattoirs, laundromats, caravan parks and large-scale hot houses. All of these were heated by boilers Ian had designed and developed, and were given approval by the Gas Association.

In the 1980’s the winds of change saw many small Australian manufacturers struggling to compete against large-scale producers from overseas such as Vulcan and, later, the Chinese behemoth. With the changed economic circumstances, Parsons Boilers pivoted to manufacturing bespoke hydronic heating systems for domestic housing.

The business still operates today under the management of Ian’s nephew, Stuart.

Sport was always a passion for Ian. He engaged with intense commitment and competitiveness in all sports in which he participated throughout his life. As a young adult he played for Doutta Stars Football Club , Pascoe Vale Water Polo Club and, later, the Mornington Football Club. A sporting highlight was being a member of the Mornington Bulldogs premiership team in 1960 when they defeated Sorrento. Always in pursuit of success in sport, Ian later became Chairman of Selectors at Mornington and played a pivotal role in the team winning the 1971 Grand Final. In later years he played competitively for Main Ridge Bowls Club and, later, Mount Martha Bowls Club.

Ian’s fierce competitiveness spilled over to spectator sportsmanship in watching his children and grandchildren in their sporting pursuits. He could always be relied upon for some quiet coaching from the sidelines, not to mention the occasional underhand tactic that might be deployed! Even in recent years he was regularly seen attending local football matches in which his grandsons played for Mount Eliza. Nevertheless, his love of the Mornington Bulldogs never waned! Although Ian saw himself as a shy child, he grew up to become very active in public life. In addition to his role with the Mornington Football Club in the 1970’s, he was an office bearer in the Mornington Rotary Club and was instrumental in the establishment of the Mornington Trade Fair in the late 1960’s to early 1970’s. As a parent, he was Chairperson of Osborne Primary School Council. He also became the elected Shire Councillor for South Riding Ward in the early 1970’s. This led to additional responsibilities including memberships of the Mornington Sewerage Authority, Westernport Regional Planning Authority and Dromana Technical School Council.

His community activities at times involved working on projects with the then local Member for Flinders, Sir Phillip Lynch.

In the early 1970’s Ian and his family, which by this time included three daughters, relocated to a farm at Main Ridge; this, together with the demands of his business and family life, precipitated his withdrawal from public life for a few years. His focus then shifted to Presidency of the Main Ridge Pony Club in support of his daughters’ membership. He later held several offices with the Red Hill Show Society, including the Presidency, and the family’s involvement in skiing led to him holding office with the Dinner Plain Ratepayers Association. In later years Ian was President of the Main Ridge Bowls Club and subsequently held office with the Mount Martha Bowls Club.

One of the few times Ian was happy to stay indoors was when he was playing the piano. He became an accomplished pianist, having played in a band in his young adult years. He never lost his love of music, playing for the Mornington Masonic Lodge in the 1960’s. Ian’s was a lifetime of playing the piano for pleasure and relaxation, especially in his retirement years.

Ian Parsons lived a rich and fulfilling life. He was always one for a practical joke and had a keen sense of humour and mischief. Paradoxically, for a child who was shy, Ian was a man who was always happiest in the company of people and being active either at work or in the community. He loved his friends and was ever thankful for the opportunity he had to have made such long-lasting friendships. He especially adored his family and is survived by his wife Melva, his three daughters (Vicki, Louise and Michelle) and their partners, five grandchildren (Thomas and Henry Moore and Jess, Sam and Max Mourney) and their partners, and a great grandson (Oscar Moore).

FRIDAY

WIDOWS

ABC TV PLUS, 8.30pm

THURSDAY LAW & ORDER: SVU TEN, 8.30pm

When you’ve been playing a police officer for 25 years like Mariska Hargitay (pictured), you could be forgiven for sometimes forgetting that catching crims is not your real job. For this long-running series, the yellow tape between fact and fiction can blur, but none more so than when Hargitay, who plays Olivia Benson, was mistaken for a law officer by a lost girl while shooting this latest series. In “Truth Embargo”, she teams up with the FBI on an unsolved case.

Flush with an outstanding cast, including Aussies Elizabeth Debicki (pictured) and Jacki Weaver along with Colin Farrell, Liam Neeson, Robert Duvall and Viola Davis, this stylish thriller from 12 Years A Slave director Steve McQueen lauds female strength and tenacity. In seedy Chicago, four criminals are killed, leaving behind their partners and a huge debt to recover. With no glimmer of hope in sight, the women team up to finish their husbands’ heist.

SUNDAY

LOUIS THEROUX INTERVIEWS...

ABC TV PLUS, 8.30pm

Louis Theroux (pictured) exudes a charming naivety with his laidback interview style, nimbly unravelling his subjects’ essence. From paedophiles to religious extremists, the child medication epidemic and Vegas gamblers, the Brit has made a name for himself by tackling challenging subjects and people. In this second season, Theroux treks through mental health and political wounds.

SUNDAY A MOST VIOLENT YEAR

SBS WORLD MOVIES, 8.30pm

This ’80s-set crime thriller is atmospheric and engrossing. Even better, its story delving into the underbelly of the American Dream strikes a chord. Headlined by esteemed actors Jessica Chastain (pictured) and Oscar Isaac, this subtle and slick crime drama drips with tension. Set in 1981 New York, fuel supplier Abel (Isaac) – a hardworking man who wants to break free from the roots of his immigrant family – is endeavouring to successfully run his business, which was afforded to him through his wife Anna’s (Chastain) father, but the intimidation and corruption of his competitors is getting in the way. It’s a gritty, sophisticated and suspenseful film that will linger with the viewer.

The Bay View Hotel Frankston demolished

Compiled by Cameron McCullough

WITH the passing of the old Bay View Hotel, Frankston, another connecting link of the past will have ceased to exist.

However, time and progress insist upon these changes if one would keep abreast of the times, and the new proprietor of the Bay View Hotel, Mrs. McCarthy, evidently belongs to the more modern school, and, in addition, has great faith in the future of Frankston, in as much as she is prepared to spend over £10,000 in the erection and equipment of a really first-class, up-to-date hotel, in place of the old one, that has more than outlived its usefulness.

To say there will be no regrets at the passing would, perhaps, be scarcely correct, as there are still a few of those who remember it in the early days.

However, they are very few in number, and perhaps only one, viz., Mr. T. McComb, remains who remembers when the old place was brought in 1854 from Jersey, one of the Channel Islands, in sections, and re-erected here.

He states that the late Mr. Amos Renouf, who came from Jersey, recognised the place upon his arrival in Frankston, and stated that originally it stood on the Island of Jersey, near the place he came from.

However, as before stated, time wills that it should go, and in its stead is to be erected a fine two-story, up-todate structure, that, when finished, will easily be the finest of its kind in the Peninsula.

It is to be built of brick, and the

windows on the first floor facing Bay Street and Davey Street will be provided with balconettes.

There will be two commodious dining rooms, a commercial room, sitting room, and a well appointed lounge.

In addition, there will be a large number of bedrooms, and the usual offices. In all, there will be between thirty and forty rooms when the hotel is completed, the licensee being determined to make it a model of comfort for travellers.

The architect is Mr. H. V. Gillespie, and the work of erection is in the hands of Mr. T. D. Barrett, of Frankston, who erected, the Presbyterian Church on the opposite corner, and has just completed some big jobs in the Yarrawonga district.

The proprietor is hopeful of having the new building, full equipped, ready

Soldiers’ and Sailors’ Fathers Association Formed.

The meeting convened by the President of the Frankston Branch of the R.S.S.I.L.A. (Mr. J. L. Pratt), at the soldiers’ Club rooms, on Thursday last, May 1, to form a “dads” Association, proved an unqualified success, quite a number of the “dads” attending; and also a number of diggers.

Amongst those present were:

Messrs. J. L. Pratt, H. Golds, Mitchell, Gray, McLeod, Lyon, Montague, W. W. Young, C. Jones, C. Gray, Kilburn, Hague, M. Brody, Bottles, Bray, Burton, Bishop, E. Gray, Johns Philbrick, Magnus, and Bottles (Jun.)

Apologies were received from Lieut.-Colonel Lazarus, Captain Sherlock, Rev. A. E. Wellard, and Mr. Nott

Marsh, Mr. E. Bray, and Mr. Hay.

The President having outlined the objects of the meeting, asked someone, if they so desired, to move in the direction indicated.

Cr. C. Gray then moved: “That in the opinion of the “dads” present it is deemed highly desirable that a branch of the Soldiers’ and Sailors’ Fathers’ Association should be formed at Frankston, and that all present pledge themselves to become members. Seconded by Mr. M. Brody and carried unanimously.

Another early Frankstonite passes

The old friends of Mr. Alec. Fitzpatrick will regret to hear that he passed away yesterday morning at two o’clock, at his home, “Mount’s Bay,” Liddiard Street, Glenferrie.

Mr. Fitzpatrick recently underwent an operation for appendicitis, and was apparently making good progress when, however, he took a bad turn, and passed away.

The funeral, which took place this afternoon, at the Box Hill Cemetery, was largely attended.

***

MR. Mark Peters, of Langwarrin, had a most remarkable escape on Monday last. He was working at his motor car, when by some unexplained reason, some petrol caught fire, inflicting some very severe burns before it was extinguished.

Our best wishes go out to the popular Mark for a speedy recovery.

***

MOUNTED Constable Graham, who has been stationed at Frankston for upwards of two years, has received word that he has been transferred to

Goornong, where he has been promoted to take charge.

Constable Graham leaves here on Wednesday next, and we feel sure that he carries with him the best wishes of the whole community for his future welfare.

The hours will be Saturdays, from 6pm to 9pm Sunday, all day; by written appointment, Wednesday only.

Letter To the Editor

Sir, A rumor has gained currency that the picture, “All the Brothers Were Valiant,” which is to be screened at the Palais Picture Theatre, on Monday night next, in aid of the Frankston 11’s Football Club, has already been screened at Frankston.

As this rumor is likely to affect the attendance, and, therefore, injure the club in a financial sense, we would be pleased if you would permit us to say, that “All the Brothers Were Vailant” is a recent Metro release, and has never been exhibited on the Peninsula or at Frankston before Yours, etc.,

E. K. McCOMB, President. H. A. PRIDER, Secretary.

Finally, relief from your hip pain

DOES this describe YOU?

• You get hip pain laying on your side in bed, and just can’t get to sleep.

• You place a pillow between your legs to help you get to sleep but laying on the painful side is still waking you.

• You find yourself standing on one leg with your other hip hanging lower, or you sitting with crossed legs causes the pain

• You are a runner worried your hip pain will get worse and stop you from exercising.

If so then read on.

The pain on the outside of the hip can be due to inflammation of the gluteal tendon, of Gluteus Medius and Minimus, where the gluteal muscles attach. It can also be where a bursa (a fat pad called the trochanteric bursa) can become inflamed. The hip pain may be associated with a stiff back.

Physiotherapist Brett Blanch-Hellyer, says that it is an injury affected by hip weakness and postural habits that place the tendons under stress. It requires a full analysis of the hip and lower limb, looking from the foot to the back biomechanics.

It can require massage, and specific strengthening exercises for the gluteal muscles as well as improving core stability to control pelvic movement.

In addition to the above solutions, there is a recent healing technology that is making a profound difference to outside of the hip pain sufferers.

Practice owner, Paul Rowson says “Shockwave Therapy is often useful, because the gluteal tendons are a connective tissue, not a muscle. It puts a significant shockwave through the tissues you apply it to. It is a pressure wave which brings blood flow to the area. Tendons and connective tissue do not have much blood supply and can take a long time to heal. Shockwave artificially stimulates the healing of the tendon.”

Shockwave therapy can also be used on Achilles tendonitis, Plantar Fasciitis, golfer’s and tennis elbow, and rotator cuff tendon problems,

and is usually most effective on long term chronic problems, rather than acute injuries.

Shockwave is not the first line of treatment for injured patients. Physiotherapy and graded exercise are more likely in the first instance. But for more stubborn conditions, shockwave has shown good results.

“The evidence at the moment suggests between three to five treatments are required, but most people should see an improvement within three sessions. It has a success rate up to 90%” Brett says.

The Shockwave therapy is administered for a three-minute period

to the affected area during consecutive weekly appointments. “It is a bit of an uncomfortable sensation” Brett says, “like most physio hands-on treatments, with a little discomfort during the treatment.”

Paul says, “After each session, most people get a significant reduction of pain and symptoms. Long term it stimulates healing, short term it reduces pain. The best thing is, the effects are long lasting. It prevents a lot of people having more invasive things like surgery or injections.

The treatment is considered safe, but can produce skin reddening or bruising, short term pain, and

• Heel pain (plantar fasciitis and Achilles tendinopathy)

• Tennis & golfers elbow

• Patella tendinopathy

• Frozen shoulder •

cannot be used on people taking blood thinning medications or with bleeding disorders. “

“It is important to know that Shockwave has a long-term effect. Most of the time you have good outcomes, without having to have further treatments.”

Shockwave is now available in Balnarring. Call the practice now and speak to one of our physios to see if Shockwave suits your condition. Back in Motion is at 6/2-8 Russell Street, Balnarring. Phone 03 5983 1021. www.backinmotion.com.au/balnarring

False claims of unanimous vote for Harry Potter

It's been a long time coming, but after receiving external advice on my obligations under the Local Government Act, I am now able to disclose that I did not vote in support of the resolution on 22 August 2023 [to allow the Harry Potter: A Forbidden Forest Experience to be staged in the wildlife sanctuary at The Briars, Mount Martha].

My vote was not a result of exceptional foresight or a comprehensive understanding of the issues that have since come to light. Instead, it reflected my consistent stance on various matters - a dissatisfaction with the depth and balance of the report presented, which led me to vote against the proposal as I couldn't be sure I had all the necessary information to make an informed decision.

Regardless of our individual votes, we are all collectively accountable for council decisions (you could argue those who lose a vote should have been more persuasive).

However, observing the public and misleading commentary by some councillors who claimed this decision was unanimous has been incredibly frustrating, as I'm sure it has been for others who may have voted against this motion. This claim has since been proven demonstrably false with the publication of the confidential minutes.

The Briars sanctuary was saved, the Harry Potter event is underway and, by many measures, a great success.

We must now move forward. However, we must also learn from this experience and change how we approach significant decisions on behalf of our community. It's clear to me we still have a long way to go.

"Happiness can be found, even in the darkest of times, if one only remembers to turn on the light” - Albus Dumbledore.

Anthony Marsh, Briars Ward councillor Mornington Peninsula Shire

Transparency needed

While it's not an easy task, it's crucial for the public to understand how the [Mornington Peninsula Shire] council operates.

Many groups attend council meetings to observe councillors’ responses to issues for ratification or further investigation. However, calling such groups a “watchdog” detracts from the empathy councillors deserve when faced with difficult situations. Regardless of the label, the public's understanding of the council's operations is key. Greater council transparency is necessary to avoid such headlines such as "'Watchdog' may check shire budget moves" (The News 30/4/24).

It's essential to know how budget funds are allocated in detail, as the council is responsible for distributing ratepayer money as evenly as possible.

Some suburbs may require more urgent attention than others but, overall, it's crucial for good governance that ratepayers know how their rates are being spent.

Path ‘facts’ wrong

I’m writing in reply to a letter last week that stated the Beleura cliff path at Mornington was predominantly used by local residents as a short cut to their beach boxes (Resident observer, Letters 30/4/24). This is factually incorrect. By far the main users are walkers and joggers from all over Mornington, Mount Eliza and Mount Martha seeking a beautiful, in fact serene, walk with majestic views of the cliff, the rugged beach and the coastline.

The path is 750 metres long and has a good gradient for a walk, not too steep and not too flat. Many finish their walk at the pier or Main Street where they have breakfast, coffee or a glass of wine.

The path is famously used to put babies to sleep.

Last December 340 supporters of the path came to the public meeting at Mornington Yacht Club to urge Mornington Peninsula Shire to get on with reopening the path. The Facebook page has 1600 members. (facebook.com/groups/ beleuracliffpath).

Members of the Friends of the Beleura Cliff

Path who have worked for eight years to preserve the path and improve the ecology of the cliff are not all residents of the cliff path area.

Peter Nicholson, Mornington

Many walkers

I would say that the letter writer in his 47 years living in Mornington has not walked the [Beleura cliff] path often, if at all, because not only do residents use it to access the beach but many other locals and visitors walk it from the sand up and return down again (Resident observer, Letters 30/4/24).

The writer is obviously oblivious to all the hard work that volunteers do to save the 100 plus-year-old path that was built by hand for the people to walk, not just from the top but from the bottom too.

Catherine Warters, Mornington

Festival a ‘bestseller’

Those of us interested in literature, climate action, democracy, and reconciliation are very grateful to have the yearly Sorrento Writers’ Festival on our doorstep. As someone who has attended numerous writers’ festivals over the years, I agree with facilitators who describe the Sorrento Writers Festival as the “best writers festival in the nation”.

My thanks to Corrie Perkin and the board for another thought provoking and fun festival. Those who missed out, I suggest saving the date for the next festival: 24-27 April 2025. You too may find yourself sitting beside Grace Tame, laughing with Niki Savva, crying with Thomas Mayo and discussing hope for our democracy with Don Watson. This year's festival had something for everyone.

Sarah Russell, Mount Martha

Teach respect early

Fresh from reducing a “respect for women” rally organiser to tears and denying saying “I am the prime minister “ when asked not to speak, even though it was caught on television audio, the Prime Minister [Anthony Albanese] announced a nearly $1 billion fund to help women escape from domestic violence.

What a crock. Bit like building an ambulance station next to a notoriously dangerous intersection. How about addressing the real problem, which is a total lack of respect in today’s society?

Firstly. Women are not equal to men. The fastest woman runner would be beaten by the 1000th fastest male and when it comes to physical violence women don’t stand a chance. That’s why we all have to speak up.

So, what has changed in the last 60 years?

Children in prep lined up before class and then it was girls in first and then boys and this practice

went right up to year 12. Mondays were flag raising and the singing of the National Anthem. Police and the courts were held in high esteem.

Boys and men stood back and let girls and women board busses and trains first. Boys were taught not to swear in front of women.

Women were protected by their partners and young men were influenced by watching the behaviour of their dads to their mums.

So, trying to educate today’s youth and men is probably too late.

Get the little preppies letting girls go first and start the road back to respect from the youngest first. Michael G Free, Mount Martha

Clear the air on port

Indeed, it would be helpful if the state government developed a strategic framework for Western Port (Calls for Western Port ‘framework’, The News, 30/4/24). Some clarity and facts and intentions would assist and enlighten us all.

How many offshore wind turbine generators, big ones of maybe 18 megawatt capacity, are going to be assembled and shipped from the Port of Hastings, even though this has been deemed "unacceptable”? I understand that planning is now for one gigawatt capacity in the first year, then annual increases (Gippsland and elsewhere) to a total of 25 gigawatts. This first year will require about 55 turbines in the sea, generating up to one gigawatt (when and if the wind blows).

Two ordinary steam turbine generators in one shed in the Latrobe Valley will generate one gigawatt of reliable, constant power 24/7; modern generators can produce one gigawatt each. Not 55 to 100 in the sea, plus huge batteries.

Of particular interest is the brown coal to hydrogen project, this gas to be ultra cooled, compressed, liquidised, then loaded onto special tankers bound for clean Japan; all at Hastings. Governments are very quiet about this project. Not a word. If it cannot capture and store the enormous amounts of CO2 emissions will it still go ahead anyway and emit as much CO2 as the brown coal generators did?

Signs are that it will. Note that if it does then the state government's intention to stop all households from using natural gas is worse than ludicrous; it would be insane. It could cause people to disbelieve the theory that CO2 high in the sky is causing planetary warming.

Brian A Mitchelson, Mornington

Oil’s mysterious past

Some 20 years ago in Mount Eliza, after an auction of household items, I bought a small, 300-year-old unsigned oil painting depicting a River Thames view of a Geogian age St Paul's Cathedral. Since then, it has stayed in my home collecting dust and deteriorating and now requires restoration and a more suitable home.

This miniature from the mid-1700s has an intrinsic antique value being in its original stucco egg and spoon frame, penciled words and horse shoe tacks complete its backing securing the plywood base on which the egg tempera paintwork has been so beautifully painted.

I am interested to know if anyone can recall ever seeing this small artwork at a friend’s or

relative’s home 20 or 30 years ago?

I am in the process of giving this oil painting to St Paul's cathedral and provinancing would assist and ensure the correct dating of this small but significant oil painting, with its arrival possibly aboard an early mid-19th century schooner bringing goods and settlers from London and possibly resulting in the owner's last resting place in the Canadian Bay area.

All supposition, but a possible indicator to jog memories of such a combination of circumstances.

I face some small conservator's costs to make this art work last another three years but, back in London rather than here where it has rested temporarily for more than 100 years.

Rather like the current interest in returning colonial booty - Aboriginal material and not to mention the Elgin Marbles - I would like to hand it over to the British later on this year thanks to the support of the Australian War Memorial and encouragement from Mount Eliza church and historical interests.

I may be contacted through MEAFEC, SECS or MECA or Mornington Peninsula Shire.

Ian Morrison, retired Melbourne Town Crier, Mount Eliza

Residents ‘go elsewhere’

The decision by VCAT to approve the building of the 14-storey building at 446-450 Nepean Highway, Frankston for the planning scheme to modernise the central business district, is a reality of the housing crisis.

The mayor of Frankston Cr Nathan Conroy has been quoted in the media as saying that he supports the decision, and that development will increase the foot traffic within the CBD to increase business activity and employment opportunities.

But this is not necessarily so, as new residents who reside in the developments still stay loyal to their previous business locations.

Also, many Frankston residents do not do their business and entertainment in Frankston but go to the Mornington Peninsula.

Is the Mornington Peninsula Shire Council being sneaky by introducing a property investment tax to stop high-rise developments being built in the shire (Views sought on 3.3% development levy, The News 23/4/24)?

Developers are very wary that a tax will increase the cost of building the developments and will increase the cost of the apartments to potential buyers which will deter investment in multi-story developments.

THE MEANING OF EXISTENCE... AND OTHER SHORT STORIES

See page 38 for solutions.

Confessions of a Crowded House Fan

WHAT a world we live in. You can be minding your own business when your phone suddenly informs you one of your all-time favourite bands has released a song. Last Friday, I awoke to discover that Crowded House had released a brand-spanking new tune called ‘Teenage Summer’. But despite the sense of joy, I hesitated. What if it was a pale imitation of the music I’d grown up loving?

It's tough work being a fan. Some people are football fanatics; they pledge their allegiance to a team and stick with them no matter what. It’s a devotion that transcends rationality and, at times, decorum. I didn’t have it in me to support a football team – I lacked the faith. I was a music fan and I pledged myself to bands, through thick and Thin Lizzy.

That said, there were a few false starts. Some musical passions burn brightly for a moment before fizzling out. Like KISS. For a brief moment in the 1970s, KISS was everywhere. And by ‘everywhere’, I mean on tshirts, lunchboxes and collectible swap cards. They were the biggest thing since sliced bread, which they also marketed to impressionable youth under the name, ‘Gene’s Seven-Grain Wholemeal Slice Party’. No rock band before or since has produced a bread that comes anywhere close.

Everyone at my school worshipped KISS. My brother and I busted open our piggy banks and blew the lot on KISS albums at K-Mart. I bought ‘Dynasty’ – which included the rock / disco crossover smash hit ‘I Was Made

for Loving You’ and my brother snaffled ‘Unmasked’, which had a cartoon strip on the cover and was home to the soft rock power ballad, ‘Shandi’. They were the first and last KISS albums we bought. I’d love to say we had a musical epiphany and dumped Gene, Paul, Ace and the other guy for LPs by The Clash, but it wouldn’t be true. We just lost interest.

My brother liked Michael Jackson’s ‘Thriller’, but it did nothing for me. It was remote, as if it had been beamed in from another planet. As the product

of superhumans, wholly inaccessible and unreachable. ‘Thriller’ wasn’t something you could really relate to. Say what you like about Crowded House, they’re a different proposition to KISS and are unlikely to be mistaken for Michael Jackson any time soon. Formed from the ashes of Split Enz, I liked them immediately. And Neil Finn wrote songs that mere mortals like me could understand. A lot of them could be played on an acoustic guitar. And whilst many an act of musical butchery has been committed by

people with acoustic guitars trying to emulate their heroes, something about those kinds of songs is inherently human.

Their debut album was crammed full of catchy tunes. It arrived at a time when some pop music had started to take itself extremely seriously and suffered from delusions of grandeur.

The first Crowded House album didn’t pretend it was saving the world; it was rooted in something far more domestic. These were songs that could be sung in the kitchen over the sink or when hanging out the laundry. The songs belonged to everyone.

Their second album, ‘Temple of Low Men’ was darker, less exuberant offering than their debut. It was the perfect soundtrack to teenage life for young people of a certain disposition, and I was just such a young person. I loved that cassette and would play it was I fell asleep. There are times when I still hear the sound of the tape deck ‘clicking’ as the album finished.

There’s a game called ‘seven degrees of Kevin Bacon’. The object is to connect yourself to Kev through other people. In the early nineties, I was three degrees from Crowded House. My uncle, Mick, worked at a private school that Neil Finn’s kids attended. My cousins were classmates with them. It was a tenuous connection, but it would do. By album three, I was out of school and at Uni. It was a sublime record stacked with ‘bonus-Finn’ by way of older brother Tim. For sensitive singer-songwriters everywhere, it was the gold standard. Almost every guitar

player in Melbourne has, at some or other, strummed the chords to ‘Four Season in One Day’ whilst staring plaintively out a rain-streaked window.

The following album marked the end of ‘phase one’ of the band. ‘Together Alone’ was more sonically daring and arty than its predecessors. It was the sound of the band growing up. It was the perfect soundtrack to my last year at Uni.

The band broke up and, a few years later, one of them passed away. There would be no going back. Or so I thought. Years later, the unthinkable happened. The band reformed and started to release new music. I kept my distance at first, but things have evolved. The most recent incarnation is a family affair, with my cousin’s former classmates now on board, improving my score on the Baconometer to ‘two’.

As it turns out, the new song ‘Teenage Summer’ is delightful. It’s so tuneful and stuffed with melodies that it’s hard to tell which part of the song is, in fact, the chorus. As it turns out, the band are still with me. What a relief. Things may change and some things that are broken can never be repaired, and while the past will remain determinedly where it is, there is always the chance of renewal and the hope that change, no matter how traumatic at the time, might actually lead to something better. It’s true for bands and, I think, for people. Now excuse me while I fetch my headphones… stuart@stuartmccullough.com

Sharks win another close on, Langy off the mark

MPNFL

MEN'S DIV ONE

SORRENTO won a thriller against Mt Eliza last weekend to improve their record to 4-1.

The Sharks travelled to Emil Madsen Reserve to take on the Redlegs. The two sides were equally matched all day, with the lead standing at just 11 points Sorrento’s way at three-quartertime.

After a tense final term, Sorrento managed to drag themselves over the line. Some accurate goalkicking helped them wrap up a 13.15 (93) to 15.5 (95) win.

Leigh Poholke scored four goals for Sorrento. James Brigden, Nicholas Jamieson, James Hallahan, Myles Poholke, and Dylan Clarke were named in their best.

Sorrento have done it the hard way this season, picking up two wins by under a goal and losing their only game by just one point. They sit third on the ladder with 16 points, with only Dromana and Frankston YCW ahead of them.

Dromana defeated Frankston Bombers 20.6 (126) to 8.11 (59) on Saturday at home. Frankston YCW beat Red Hill easily 15.10 (100) to 5.4 (34).

Langwarrin picked up a gritty 22 point win over Mornington at Lloyd Park last weekend to pick up their first win of the year. Rosebud closed

out the round with a 22 point win over Pines at Olympic Park.

MEN'S DIV TWO

EDITHVALE-Aspendale held off a fast-finishing Devon Meadows to claim the four points last Saturday.

Edi-Asp led from the outset, and took a 13-point lead into the final term. Devon Meadows were up to the fight, and managed to kick ahead in the middle of the final quarter.

Two quick goals to EdithvaleAspendale back them on top. Devon Meadows answered back with two of their own, but fell just short.

Edi-Asp held on to win by one point 11.13 (79) to 11.12 (78).

Lewis Diggins, Kurt Lo Po, Jack Turner, Kris Pendlebury, and Will Conlan were named in Edi-Asp’s best. Joel Hillis booted five goals for Devon Meadows.

Undefeated Chelsea stretched their winning streak to five last weekend with a thumping 18.15 (123) to 8.13 (61) win over Tyabb. They sit a game clear on top of the ladder.

Karingal scored their first win of the 2024 season last Saturday. They beat Hastings by 27 at home.

A massive 11 goal-haul from Brent Eddy was the highlight of Pearcedale’s dominant win over Rye last weekend. Pearcedale thumped the Demons 28.23 (191) to 6.6 (42).

Somerville and Crib Point were winners against Bonbeach and Seaford respectively on Saturday.

WOMEN'S DIV ONE

IT was another big win for Mornington Blue last weekend.

Mornington Blue never looked like losing away from home against Karingal. They managed to hold their opponents goalless for the game.

Mornington Blue went on to claim a 47 point win 0.6 (6) to 8.5 (53). Ashley Jans, Elizabeth Muir, Caitlyn Gorka, Georgia Isaac, and Hayley Monk were their best.

Warragul Industries also kept up their good form. They smashed Pearcedale 11.3 (69) to 0.2 (2) at home.

Frankston had a bye last weekend. Bass Coast has received approval to immediately drop down to Division Two, meaning one team will now have a bye in the top division each week this season.

League expansion on the cards

A CONCRETE plan to establish a third tier of the Mornington Peninsula Football Netball League is expected to be unveiled later this year. The establishment of a third division was identified as a priority in the MPFNL’s strategic plan. League president Graham Sherry says that the plan will be acted on soon.

The News asked Sherry if the league is considering adding more clubs soon. Sherry did not confirm those plans, but said “it is part of the MPFNL strategic plan to establish a third division and our board will be following through with that initiative in the coming months.”

MPFNL expansion has been rejected by its member clubs in recent

years. Cranbourne Football Club has made two attempts to enter the league since 2018, but hasn’t been successful. Adding clubs from within the Kingston local government area will be considered during the expansion process, The News understands.

Strikers too classy for Skye

SOCCER

PENINSULA Strikers left no doubt about their promotion credentials when they comfortably accounted for neighbouring Skye United 4-0 in Saturday’s derby showdown at Centenary Park.

Eleven minutes in and a Taylan Geylan cross was steered home by Tom Wood at the near post.

Veteran striker Wayne Gordon’s solo run came to an end when he was tripped in the 24th minute and Skye’s hopes probably ended there too.

Gordon’s neatly curled free-kick left Skye keeper Callum Hope grasping at thin air.

The killer blow came seconds after an audacious long-range effort from Ethan Goulding had beaten Hope only to strike a post and bounce out.

Jaiden Madafferi had bossed the midfield and in the 40th minute he chested the ball down then unleashed a dipping volley that rocketed past Hope and into the top far corner.

Skye huffed and puffed in the second half as Strikers’ foot came off the pedal but the home team was too well marshalled at the back.

The final goal in the 73rd minute came via the boot of Skye defender Daniel Walsh who found himself forced into a split-second reaction as a superb Madafferi cross was sent at pace in behind Skye’s defensive line.

Strikers are now one of four sides that have emerged from the State 2 promotion pack and can take an important step towards cutting that number to three this Saturday at home to fourth-placed Berwick City.

Strikers head coach Scott Morrison is confident that his squad has the talent and depth to continue its challenge.

“Berwick are a very good side, however if you want to be successful you’ve got to beat the teams at the top,” Morrison said.

“Our depth is excellent this year and we expect Jamie Davidson and Campbell Steedman back this week while Hamraz Zenoozi isn’t far away.

“We’ve also got Deniz (Karabadzak) and Josh Botha back to the club in the last fortnight and we have so many quality youngsters ready to step up so we are in a really good spot at the moment.”

For Skye there is little positive news as it wallows in the bottom four and faces a crucial away game on Friday evening against second-bottom Doncaster Rovers.

In VPL1 Langwarrin had to settle for a 2-2 draw at home to Northcote City on Saturday.

Langy led after 26 minutes when Northcote didn’t deal with a Tom Youngs cross from the left and Brad Blumenthal was at the far post to make the visitors pay dearly with a close-range shot.

Youngster Owen Murphy was making his full senior debut and acquitted himself in style pitted against one of the league’s top players in Northcote star Trent Skapetis.

Langy took what seemed like a firm grasp of all three points when Archie Macphee gave it a twogoal cushion in the 78th minute.

Luke Goulding robbed a defender wide right then squared the ball to the unmarked Macphee who had no trouble slotting it home.

A minute later it was 2-1 when a pinpoint pass was controlled by Alun Webb before a slick turn and neat finish gave Langy keeper Griffin Bambach no chance.

In the 82nd minute Blumenthal went close to giving Langy breathing space with a shot from just outside the area that struck the post and in the final minute of normal time the visitors’ comeback was complete.

Yuki Uchida cut in from the left skipping past a number of opponents before slamming the ball past Bambach from 20 metres.

In State 1 Mornington’s season went from bad to worse with Saturday’s 2-1 home loss to Casey Comets.

No-one envisaged the Seagulls being closer to relegation than promotion after round six but that’s the stark reality of the club’s league position.

Twenty-year-old debutant Jack Allan came off the bench in the second half and scored Mornington’s goal.

In State 3 Frankston Pines lost 2-0 away to Ashburton United.

Pines have appointed a co-coach to work alongside Donn Delaney with the senior squad and has signed some new players but the club is yet to release their names.

In State 4 Mentone took another step towards

consolidating its status after last year’s promotion when it defeated visitor Keysborough 3-0 last weekend.

It was Mentone’s first home win of the season.

After a goalless first half Mentone went in front in the 51st minute when new signing Peter Varsamis fired home the rebound after his initial shot was saved by Keysborough keeper Austin Kearney.

The game remained in the balance until the 92nd minute when Luka Varga was fouled inside the area and Dean Gerszonovicz made no mistake from the spot.

Varsamis put the game beyond doubt two minutes later when he broke through to finish low past Kearney.

Baxter got back to winning ways with a convincing 4-1 scoreline away to Lyndale United on Saturday.

The visitors opened the scoring in the 5th minute through skipper Aleks Dukic who was on hand to stab home from close range following fine work on the right from Noah Green.

Baxter doubled its lead through a Jack Elliott header in the 21st minute after Keegan Myatt won possession high up the pitch and played a delightful cross into the box.

Lyndale halved the deficit shortly after with a fine Ali Ulum free-kick which struck the underside of the bar before crossing the line.

In the second half Baxter made sure of the points with goals from set pieces.

Aiden McKenna powered home a header from a Dukic corner in the 71st minute and in injury time Daniel Taylor volleyed home from another Djukic corner.

Somerville Eagles surprised Hampton Park United when they forced the title challenger to share the points in Saturday’s 2-2 draw at KM Reedy Reserve.

Somerville opened the scoring early when a Nick Simmons strike took a deflection and found the back of the net.

Hampton Park pressed hard and threatened on the counter eventually being rewarded when a long ball over the top was squared to Naseem Rasekh for an easy tap-in.

But Somerville captain Conor Mcfall put the visitors back in front with the last kick of the half when his free-kick clipped the underside of the crossbar before finding the net for a 2-1 half time lead.

In the 55th minute Hampton Park again drew level through a free header inside the box by Mo Chehimi.

It was end-to-end football for the remainder of an entertaining contest with neither side able to break the deadlock.

Chelsea lost 3-0 away to Monash University on Saturday.

The league leader was well organised, disciplined and too strong for Gus Macleod’s outfit.

In State 5 both frontrunners slipped up last weekend with Seaford United drawing 2-2 away to Endeavour Hills Fire while Rosebud drew 1-1 away to Barton United.

Seaford was 2-0 up after 31 minutes with both goals coming from Sam Luxford penalties awarded after handling inside the area.

It should have increased its lead but Naseer Mohammad missed from a one-on-one with Endeavour keeper Josh Permal.

The home side hit back just before the interval through Jonathan Florent who slid down and got a vital touch to a shot following a corner to the back post.

Backy Barakzoi and Mohammad both went close in the second half before Loic Calambe’s superb left-foot shot from just outside the area gave Seaford keeper Hayden Hicks no chance.

Permal denied Luxford his hat-trick with a remarkable reaction save from a back post header and the match ended on a contentious note when the referee chalked off Mikey Turney’s curling strike into the top far corner ruling that a defender was pushed.

Rosebud drew 1-1 away to Barton United on Saturday.

In the 35th minute Ben Symonds split the Barton defence with an excellent ball for the hard working Nathan Yole.

Referee Farhad Sharif was left with the easiest of penalty decisions when Yole was scythed down going around the keeper at pace.

Dougie Cunnison stepped up to confidently put Rosebud ahead from the spot.

Barton right winger Arif Askari equalised early in the second half when he cut inside and finished well with a low strike into the corner of goal.

An entertaining and sometimes frantic last halfhour ensued and a combination of wayward finishing and desperate defending from Rosebud meant that its perfect record had been blemished.

Aspendale had a convincing 4-1 home win over Casey Panthers last week.

The home side hit the front just before half-time when Jared Kilmartin broke free in the box to square the ball to Taylan Yildirim for a close-range finish.

Aspendale continued to dominate play after the break and Dom Paul made it 2-0 in the 55th minute after forcing a turnover then striking his shot past Panthers keeper Daniel Santoro with the outside of his right foot.

Casey captain Mathew Kaligianis brought his side back into the contest when he made the most of a defensive mix-up in the 63rd minute but five minutes later it was 3-1.

Substitute Koray Yildirim pounced on a loose ball in the box and made no mistake.

The final goal of this contest came when great work on the left by Paul saw him drive the ball across goal for a Koray Yildirim tap-in.

Mount Eliza has parted company with head coach Alex Halikias in the fallout from the previous week’s abandoned game against Barton.

Halikias was sent off late in the first half and is adamant that claims made against him in the referee’s report are unsubstantiated and will be vigorously challenged.

One of the spectators was Football Victoria CEO Chris Pehlivanis who had been invited to the match by Halikias and may be called as a witness

at the upcoming tribunal hearing.

Mount Eliza technical director Gary Talbot and reserves coach Graeme Ferguson were caretaker coaches for last weekend’s 6-0 away win over Cleeland United.

Jordan Vacouftsis reports that Mount Eliza had the best chance of the opening exchanges and in the 22nd minute a Mujtaba Sakhi cross was volleyed onto the bar and over by James Liddle.

In the 39th minute a poor clearance from Cleeland keeper Oboj Akokonei fell to Fraser Keon whose touch and chipped finish opened the scoring.

Seven minutes into the second half Sakhi went past two defenders and slotted the ball into the bottom corner to double the lead.

It was 3-0 when Keon set up Austin Mcewen in the 65th minute and when youngster Jamie Powell crossed for Amish Chandra to head home in the 78th minute there was no way back for the home team.

Powell’s second assist enabled substitute Cohan King to make it 5-0 before Keon rounded off the scoreline in the 89th minute.

Pakenham United won its first points of the season pushing Mount Martha into second bottom with a 5-2 home win over the Mariners last weekend.

Mount Martha conceded three goals in the first 13 minutes and although Daniel Bancroft made it 3-1 in the 17th minute the visitors had given themselves a mountain too high to climb.

Mount Martha created chances in the second half but had to wait until deep into injury time for substitute David Jones to complete the scoreline.
