The camp in Sunnyside Rd is run by the YMCA. Seniors took the opportunity to learn about clubs and social groups, such as University of the Third Age and Impact Volunteering or, like, Ms Bolim, to do something they’ve never attempted before.

MORNINGTON Peninsula Shire is continuing to look far and wide for innovation and inspiration with two councillors and its top executive preparing to pack their bags for overseas and interstate travel. In November, CEO Carl Cowie and Cr Simon Brooks propose being in Germany for an international climate change conference and Cr Julie Edge wants to be in Brisbane for a forum on disasters. If approved by councillors at last night’s meeting (Tuesday 10 November), before arriving in Bonn for the United Nations’ COP23 conference, Mr Cowie will have already been to Sweden and plans to later head south for another conference in Malta. Closer to home, Cr Edge has sought permission to attend the Fire, Cyclone and Flood Disaster Management and Recovery Forum in Brisbane from 29 November to 1 December. The total cost of the three journeys is about $25,500. This amount may rise as a report to councillors by Mr Cowie’s executive assistant Bianca Hubble states that the “CEO, potentially with other representatives” of the shire will meet and speak with people “who are all working towards the same goals at the shire”. The shire’s communications and media manager Mark Kestigian said he was unable to provide names or de-

tails of the shire representatives who may be going overseas with Mr Cowie until after tonight’s council meeting. If the conference attendances are approved, the councillors’ costs - $8000 for Cr Brooks and $3000 Cr Edge will be deducted from their $16,000 a four-year term training, conferences and seminars allowance. Mr Cowie’s expenses ($14,500) will be the first to come out of his $30,000 study tour allowance approved by council in September 2016. In February, the mayor Cr Bev Colomb said the study tour allowance was “an offer that may or may not be taken up by the CEO” (“CEO study deal revealed” The News 27/2/17). This latest round of overseas and interstate travel follows the September study tour to China by Cr Hugh Fraser, chief operating officer Niall McDonagh and waste services team leader Daniel Hinson. The trio investigated technologies being used in China to generate electricity from rubbish to lessen the amount going to landfill is part of the shire’s bid to attain carbon neutrality by 2020. It cost about $7000 to send Cr Fraser, Mr McDonagh and Mr Hinson to China for seven days. Cr Fraser’s $2500 share of the cost was the first deduction this term from his $16,000 conferences, training and seminars account. The climate change conference being attended by Cr Brooks and Mr Cowie is the 23rd in a series being held by the United Nations. Continued Page 10

School’s in for GPs in search for ulcer cure DOCTORS will be encouraged to participate in a “learning module” to help them identify and diagnose Buruli ulcer in patients on the Mornington Peninsula. The module is being developed by experts from the Department of Health and Human Services and a public health laboratory in conjunction with the Royal Australian College of General Practitioners and infectious diseases experts. “Providing GPs with this knowledge will ensure early diagnosis can be made and the most effective antibiotic treatments provided to reduce the need for surgery and skin grafts if the condition develops,” department spokesman Tim C said. “Whole genome sequencing is also being conducted on samples from cases of Buruli ulcer at another … public health laboratory to better understand [its] spread into new regions. “The module will be available early next year and in place prior to the seasonal increase in cases seen each year, commencing around April.” Mr Vainoras said extra funding had been provided to AgriBio for further testing and analysis of mosquitoes to detect the presence of the bacteria responsible for causing Buruli ulcer. Experts are also analysing possum

faeces collected “from a number of locations” on the peninsula for the presence of the bacterium responsible for its spread. Mr Vainoras said said this was part of “significant work into Buruli ulcer already being undertaken” to combat incidences of the disease which is becoming increasingly prevalent. “This field work follows on from earlier efforts to establish what links there may be between possums and mosquitoes in the transmission of Buruli ulcer to humans,” he said. The department has been notified of 165 cases of the disease so far this year, compared to 110 for the same period in 2016. Nepean Liberal candidate Russell Joseph last week called on the state and federal governments to “drop the politics” and work with each other to eradicate the Buruli ulcer. Flinders MP and Health Minister Greg Hunt has previously agreed extra research was needed and the government would take a “sympathetic” look at any proposals. Mr Hunt’s office also told The News that $2.4 million had been allocated to research into the ulcer, but this was later revealed to be the aggregate of money spent since 2000. Stephen Taylor

Presenters, who each spoke for about 50 minutes and illustrated their talks with slides and videos, included: James Pole (Introduction to wide field astrophotography); Alex Cherney (Auroras imaging the night sky); Greg Walton (Time lapse astrophotography); Paul Albers (Astrophotography with a DSLR and CCD); Anders Hamilton (Southern lights in

After the presentations, visitors were invited to set up their cameras outside while society members gave advice on photographing the night sky. Participants were then invited to tour the observatory and view Saturn, star clusters and Jupiter through the telescopes.

THE Poyser family, of Mt Eliza, has been entering the Arthurs Seat Challenge since it began 15 years ago. While mother Raquel pushed oneyear-old daughter Jussy in a pram, father Brad carried their eldest, Tom, three, in a backpack. According to Ms Poyser her family loves the community spirit generated by the challenge. “This event represents many things for me and my family. The ASC provides an achievable fitness goal for us to work towards throughout the year,” she said. “It’s wonderful to hear and feel the pounding of hundreds of feet on the bitumen as you run with the group.” In addition to this appeal the ASC has a deeper meaning for this family. Both Brad and Raquel work as a physiotherapists on the Mornington Peninsula, with Raquel providing therapy for victims who have sustained brain injury from road trauma. Her clients suffer from a range of disabilities caused by brain injuries, including reduced independence in movement, problems with balance and coordination and in some cases an inability to walk again and the need to rely on a wheelchair for mobility. Many also have cognitive impairments, emotional issues and a reduced ability to participate in work and recreational pursuits. The impact of road trauma also has ramifications for victims’ family and friends. Money raised from the Arthurs Seat Challenge goes towards providing road safety education for year 11 students across Frankston and the Mornington Peninsula through the Fit2Drive Program. Statistics have shown that early education in the area of driver and passenger safety helps reduce the devastating impact of road crashes. “I would love to have less work in this area and applaud the organisers of this wonderful community event for making such a huge commitment to this very important cause,” Ms Poyser said.

RAQUEL Poyser and daughter Jussy are keen participants in the annual Arthurs Seat Challenge.

With Tom Poyser on his L-plates, and Jussy about to embark on hers, the importance of this community initiative resonates with all members of the Poyser family. Tom has played in the band for past few years, entertaining the crowd at the finish line, Jussy continues to participate in the challenge with Raquel as part of their running program, and according to Jussy, “Dad is happy to be the taxi driver and ferry us all around”. Join the Poysers this year on Sunday 12 November for the Arthurs Seat Challenge. To register go to arthursseatchallenge.com.au

VicRoads stops shredding after outcry Stephen Taylor steve@mpnews.com.au VICROADS has called a halt to the wholesale clearing of vegetation on the Mornington Peninsula Freeway, between Mt Martha and Rosebud, following a storm of protest by wildlife carers and residents. Reports of dozens of displaced animals, including ringtail possums dropping babies from nests, echidnas and blue tongue lizards being trampled by the authority’s “forestry machine” – and even being mulched alive – caused outcry last week. Community concerns, voiced loudly on social media and radio, pointed to the loss of habitat, “cruel” treatment of wildlife, lack of planning and consultation, loss of amenity to the area, increased noise and air pollution, sun and traffic glare, stronger cross winds, increased temperatures on the road and even potential flooding. The protesting led to four VicRoads representatives meeting at the Rye home of Crystal Ocean Wildlife Shelter’s Brenda Marmion, alongside Eve Kelly and Craig Thomson, of Australian Wildlife Protection Council and Klarissa Garnaut, of WHOMP (Wildlife Help on the Mornington Peninsula) on speaker phone. VicRoads was told the clearing would impact on wildlife now and in the future. “We voiced our concerns about the loss of habitat, and the welfare and care of animals now in rehab at wildlife shelters,” Ms Kelly said later. “We also raised our concerns about the destructive methods used and the lack of planning, including the time of year this work has commenced.” She said spring was a time of natural regeneration, nesting and rearing of young. “Baby nesting birds wouldn't have gotten away and lizards and echidna certainly would have been gobbled up.” The meeting had the desired result, with VicRoads putting an immediate stop to the clearing work.

VicRoads safe system road infrastructure program director Bryan Sherritt said Friday the project would “undergo a re-design”. “Work will not recommence until next year after the summer peak season to minimise disruption,” he said. “The machine used to clear vegetation is a highdensity vegetation removal machine and will no longer be used on this project. “For any future vegetation removal we will utilise methods more sensitive to fauna and employ an additional ecology officer during this work.” “It appears that community outcry and pressure has worked toward a good outcome for what was set to be destroyed,” Ms Kelly said. Mr Sherritt said VicRoads was “committed to maximising the retention of the remaining vegetation” during future stages of the work. “We are currently completing the installation of flexible safety barriers on the cleared section of the freeway which is one of our state’s most high risk roads,” he said. “We are working on a new design for the remaining stages of the project that will balance the need to install these life-saving treatments with the best possible outcomes for the environment and wildlife.” Ms Marmion said online that it was “heartening that [VicRoads] are at least listening to us.” She and others queried why a lone “wildlife spotter” had the daunting task of rehoming dislodged and distressed wildlife – often possums from fragmented nests – and transporting them to overcrowded wildlife shelters. Ms Marmion said her shelter was “close to capacity” but had agreed to take more homeless wildlife “after hearing that most baby possums taken to local vets are being euthanised”. It was also reported that the euthanising was distressing for vet staff. Ms Kelly said 15 orphaned possums were being hand raised at WHOMP after the drama. Two young ringtails had to be put down.

Fire ruins takeaway’s lunch time RYE takeaway the Shark Shack was destroyed by fire when a deep fryer caught fire and flames spread throughout the shop, 12.40pm, Thursday 28 September. No one was injured in the blaze which took Rye and Rosebud CFA brigades and the Frankston Tele boom about 20 minutes to bring under control. A police report said the interior of the business was “consumed by fire”. Rye CFA Brigade lieutenant Eddie Matt said shop staff tried in vain to extinguish the flames at the Pt Nepean Rd business before crews arrived. “There was significant interior damage and the fire was a potential threat to neighbouring shops,” he said. The shops were evacuated and Point Nepean Rd was blocked to traffic during the busy lunchtime period. n Rye Fire Brigade will hold an Open Day, 10am, Saturday 4 November, with a sausage sizzle, trucks, children's activities, live fire displays and bushfire education session.

Council, MP fight state’s planning knock-back Stephen Taylor steve@mpnews.com.au “DISAPPOINTED and concerned” is how Mornington Peninsula mayor Cr Bev Colomb feels about state Planning Minister Richard Wynne’s refusal to place interim planning controls over large-scale developments. The move has also angered Liberal Mornington MP David Morris who has warned the government’s stance will see the peninsula become “just an extension of the urban sprawl”. The shire wants a design and development (DDO) planning overlay to “combat” changes made by the state government to general residential zone (GRZ) provisions which allow construction of buildings up to three storeys – or 11 metres – in height. “The DDO would have protected around 24,000 properties from the state government’s changes by allowing for development up to two storeys, not three storeys, in residential areas across the townships of Capel Sound, Rosebud, Dromana, Mt Martha, Mornington, Baxter, Somerville, Tyabb, Hastings and Bittern,” Cr Colomb said. “We are extremely disappointed about the refusal. The state government’s change to three storeys within the general residential zone, in the absence of additional planning controls, presents a significant risk of inappropriate development on the peninsula.” Cr Colomb said the “council, together with our community, [has] worked very hard to have our voices heard about these detrimental planning changes”. Cr Colomb said the shire would “continue to act on behalf of the community to prevent devel-

opment that is inconsistent with the peninsula and its low-scale character”. “Our shire-wide Mornington Peninsula Housing and Settlement Strategy 2017 will help protect us from future development like this, by outlining our direction for future housing and population growth on the peninsula over the next 15 years, and will assist with good planning for many years to come,” she said. “I encourage the local community to take the opportunity to provide input into planning matters. This is a great opportunity to have your voices heard about future development on the peninsula.” A former Mornington shire president, Mr Morris said government changes to the planning scheme would have an “immediate impact” on blocks where there are no development overlays, such as parts of Mornington and Mt Martha east of Nepean Highway, between Main St and Craigie Rd, and other areas across the peninsula. “The new rules allow buildings of three storeys instead of two, and encourage inner suburban density,” Mr Morris, who is now MP for Mornington and the Liberal opposition’s spokesman on local government, said. “Wording in the zone ordinance to support moderate growth has been removed. The purpose of the zone is to now encourage growth – full stop. Those rules apply now.” Mr Morris said the effect of the changes to the planning scheme over the next two years would be to the overlays that “currently protect three quarters of our residential areas”. “The future of the overlays is in doubt, and the main premise on which they are founded is removed,” he said.

Mr Morris said until recently, one of the purposes of the zone was to implement adopted neighbourhood character guidelines. “This has been removed, and replaced by some vague words about neighbourhood character objectives,” he said. “There is a real risk that VCAT will now rule that the overlays are inconsistent with the zone. Even if that does not occur, the government requires overlays to be reviewed, and re-written in a manner consistent with the zone – in other words, to encourage growth.” Mr Morris said the Mornington Peninsula Localised Planning Statement intended a “clear separation” of the peninsula from metropolitan Melbourne. “The planning controls in place prior to the [recent] changes were intended to allow ongoing development in a manner consistent with each residential area,” he said. “While the zoning for most residential areas is the same , general residential, the actual controls vary significantly depending on where your house is located through the application of overlays,” he said. “Some examples are the Mt Eliza Woodlands, Ranelagh Estate, Beleura Hill, Mt Martha south of Sunshine Creek and all residential areas adjoining the coast. Altogether, nearly three-quarters of residential land is currently protected by overlays. “In most areas overlays specify the minimum block size, how many houses can be built on a block, how many storeys they can be.” Mr Morris said if the changes were not reversed “we must consider that policy abandoned”. “Our peninsula towns will become just an extension of the urban sprawl.”

Councillors, CEO have travel plans Continued from Page 1 Cr Fraser and the then mayor Cr Graham Pittock, at a cost of about $7000 each, attended the 2015 conference in Paris. Renewable resources team leader Jessica Wingad also attended the Paris conference. While it appears Cr Brooks intends to spend 6-17 November at the Bonn COP23 conference, Mr Cowie’s itinerary sees him in Stockholm, Sweden for two days from 6 November. While in Sweden Mr Cowie has “proposed” meetings with Stockholm County Council “and site visits looking at renewable energy and what the city is doing around carbon neutrality”. After the Bonn conference, which ends 17 November, he heads to Valletta, the capital of the Mediterranean island of Malta. (Described in tourist brochures as a piece of living history, Valletta was founded 1565 as a refuge for soldiers returning from the Crusades). Mr Cowie’s reason for being in the city is to attend the 21-24 November Commonwealth Local Government Conference titled “Fit for the future: resources and capacity for effective local government”. While at the disaster forum in Brisbane Cr Edge, a member of Victoria Police, will be able to attend “keynote sessions and workshops [that] will provide insights from many regional case studies of effective implementation of recovery and emergency communications during and after disasters”, according to a report from governance manager Joe Spiteri. Cr Brooks and Mr Cowie will miss a council meeting on Wednesday 8 November, which, according to Mr Spiteri is needed “to accommodate the large number of expected items to be determined by council”. Mr Cowie will also miss the annual meeting on 14 November, although Cr Brooks will be back in time for that meeting which, as well as electing a mayor and deputy mayor for the coming year, includes a civic reception. Cr Edge’s Brisbane conference runs 29 November to 1 December, which means she will be back in time for the planning services committee meeting on Monday 4 December.

Clean-up time: Volunteers who helped collect rubbish from Dromana beach. Picture: Supplied

Litter busters’ heavy haul at beach ‎PICKING up 27 kilograms of rubbish from Dromana beach was either a good thing or a bad thing, depending on how you look at it. Good because that’s 27kg less rubbish than there was before, but bad because it shouldn’t have been there in the first place. Organiser of Beach Patrol Safety Beach/ Dromana Gary Robertson thanked the 42 volunteers who turned up on a chilly Friday 29 September with their gloves and litter bags to collect rubbish at the beach and foreshore. Much of the rubbish consisted of small pieces of plastic and cigarette butts. “What a great first-up day it was and a huge thank-you to the volunteers,” said Mr Robertson, who is about to start campaigning for temporary bins to be placed on the beach over summer.

The group’s next litter collection is 9am, Sunday 15 October, at Dromana pier. The group’s email address is 3936@beachpatrol. com.au

Waste in China MORNINGTON Peninsula Shire’s Cr Hugh Fraser and chief operating officer Niall McDonagh will speak about their recent visit to China to study alternative waste and waste-toenergy technology at a Waste Forum and Expo, 11am-3pm, Sunday 29 October, at Dromana Hall. The event aims to give people an insight into dealing with waste through a series of presentations and workshops. Stalls will showcase local initiatives to reduce waste, avoid plastics

and manage litter. The free forum and expo aims to teach residents how to apply waste reducing strategies at home and work, and learn about the future of waste management. There will be prizes, giveaways and handy hints on starting a “war on waste” at home. Stalls will demonstrate hands-on activities, including composting and worm farming, how to recycle (almost) everything, eco living, decluttering and beach patrol. Other features will be the Dame Phyllis Frost winner: Josie Jones, as well as Boomerang Bags, Best Bite Food Businesses and Responsible Cafés. Dromana hall is at 2 Verdon St, Dromana. There’s free entry and parking. Details: mornpen.vic.gov.au/waronwaste Stephen Taylor

Rotary helps the helpers SORRENTO Rotary Club has given $500 to the Bayside Peninsula Family Violence Program which supports women and children experiencing or recovering from family violence. The program provides casework, counselling and links to legal support, housing services and support groups. Staff also help women to plan their safety. Safe refuge and emergency accommodation is arranged for women and children at immediate risk with Good Shepherd’s Peninsula Family Violence Refuges being made accessible through the Safe Steps Family Violence Response Centre.

The family violence program is one of several projects supported by the Rotary club. In the past year more than $100,000 was raised by the club through such fundraising activities as the annual sports lunch, art show, sausage sizzles and parking. Other recipients included Rosebud Hospital, Peninsula Home Hospice, Red Cross, Sorrento Primary School and St Joseph's Primary School, Sorrento Football and Cricket Club and Food for All. Anyone wanting to attend a meeting of Sorrento Rotary Club at the Sorrento Golf Club should call 0438 537 757.

Tourism can have its downside for residents Stephen Taylor steve@mpnews.com.au RYE Community Group Alliance president Mechelle Cheers is worried about the impact of tourism on the Mornington Peninsula’s animals, vegetation and people. “This is a conversation that needs to be had – especially for the protection of the southern end of the peninsula. Please don’t misunderstand what I am saying as anti-tourism or development – it’s not.” The fears held by Ms Cheers coincided with a news release from Flinders MP Greg Hunt welcoming a rise in the number of international visitors to the peninsula and the growth in spending by residents and visitors. The data used by Mr Hunt shows tourists are staying longer and spending more. The International Visitor Survey (IVS) shows more than 61,000 international visitors toured the peninsula last financial year, spending more than $1000 a person. “This is great news for the residents and businesses on the Mornington Peninsula,” Mr Hunt said. “Over the past three years we have seen spending from international tourists increase by 103 per cent across the peninsula. “We are fortunate to live in such a beautiful part of the world and it is nice to see so many people from across the globe visiting the south-east of Victoria. “A growing tourism industry will drive our

economy and create more local jobs.” Another report mentioned by Mr Hunt’s office: the National Visitor Survey released last month, revealed that locals tipped $464 million into the peninsula’s economy during the past financial year. But Nepean Historical Society president Joy Kitch said better planning for increasing numbers of tourists – and part-time residents – was paramount. “Peak times [in Sorrento] are always January and February, but now it seems [bumper crowds are here] every weekend,” she said. “More and more apartments are going up bringing more people and leading to the need for better traffic management. “We are concerned about the [planned Sorrento] ferry terminal traffic being re-diverted, and residents of Coppin Grove are concerned about more and more cars using their street. “People in cars are getting more angry because they can’t get a park, [so] we should have a good look at planning that works for everyone.” Ms Cheers in a presentation to Mornington Peninsula Shire in July said that a “growing body of research had found that mass tourism had its downside, in particular, on local communities and the natural environment”. “Since that meeting, there has been considerable publicity involving key tourist spots across Europe that supports what I was saying that night,” she said last week. Ms Cheers has written to the mayor Cr Bev Colomb and CEO Carl Cowie asking if the shire has

any strategies or plans to “balance the impact of the increasing volume of summer visitors”. “By impact, I mean the increased rubbish, vandalism, graffiti, increased crime, noise, traffic, building development, loss of a peaceful amenity and destruction of flora and marine fauna habitat,” she said. She also asked if the shire knew how much tourism cost in providing increased services. “Has the shire conducted any of its own research on the impact of tourism? Has it looked at the body of research in this area?” Sorrento Chamber of Commerce’s business development manager Natalie Garner said her role involved attracting tourists to the peninsula at offpeak times. “We aim to spread the load over the year,” she said. “Our marketing is done from Easter to December.” Ms Cheers said tourism was an all-of-peninsula issue. “This will increase with recent planning decisions. No one is saying to stop tourism; what we are saying is, protect ratepayers and the very environment that tourists come for.”

Tables for fish

Opening smiles: Dromana Men’s Shed president Rick Plummer, Cr Simon Brooks, Nepean MP Martin Dixon, Crs Antonella Celi and Rosie Clark, and Flinders MP Greg Hunt help open the Safety Beach-Dromana Men’s Shed. Picture: Supplied

Shed men feeling right at home DROMANA Men’s Shed has come a long way since the “dark days” of October 2014 when it was ousted from its base at the Don Bosco Camp, Safety Beach, after two happy years. That site was considered “incompatible” with the camp management’s aims and shed members were given a few months to find a new home. Now, that’s a reality with the opening of the new shed at the Dromana Recreation Reserve between the freeway and tennis courts, close to the Dromana community garden. President Rick Plummer said the previous modest membership “burned a lot of midnight oil” in its fundraising efforts, such as raising more than $30,000 from sausage sizzles and delivering phone books.

“We sold so many sausages they would have stretched from Dromana to Mornington.” Other money came from Mornington Peninsula Shire ($57,000), Stronger Communities 2015-16 ($20,000), solar panels came through a federal government’s Solar Communities Grant 2016 ($5800) and service clubs. About 120 people attended the opening at which “the weather behaved itself”. “It was raining before the 11am opening and then it stopped and became fine for us and then it began to rain again immediately afterwards,” Mr Plummer said. The 49 men’s shed members will enjoy working on the lathe, doing wood and metal work, and bringing in pet projects from home. Soon

they will build a dust-proof wall to provide a clean environment for special projects. In a previous project they helped pupils from Our Lady of Fatima, Rosebud, build possum nesting boxes. “This is a great place for men to hang out, get to know others and enjoy their company,” Mr Plummer said. “Some members play musical instruments and we might even be able to organise a concert.” Three new members joined the shed last week. “They were blown away by the facilities here,” Mr Plummer said. Opening times are 9am-midday, Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday. As numbers grow the shed will increase its hours or the days it opens. Details: 0409 838 974 or 5981 4765.

TWO new fish cleaning tables are available at the Warneet boat ramp. The Warneet Fishing Club managed the installation of the new tables in time for summer when anglers in Western Port bring in King George whiting, gummy sharks, snapper, flathead and calamari. The stainless steel tables have running water, roofs for shade, bins for large fish frames and wooden cutting blocks. Eligible organisations can now apply for the 2017/18 round of the Recreational Fishing Grants Program for projects that will benefit grass roots anglers. The program is open to fishing clubs, community groups, incorporated bodies and government and statutory bodies until 28 February 2018. Details: www.vfa.vic.gov.au/fishinggrants Meanwhile, new controls have been placed on the commercial harvesting of pipis from coastal beaches for human consumption and fishing bait. Victorian Fisheries Authority acting CEO Dallas D’Silva said eight existing licence holders could access the fishery over the next 12 months, during finalisation of the pipi fishery management plan. “Victoria’s beaches are home to healthy populations of pipis that can support sustainable commercial harvest, providing regional jobs and meeting increasing demand for the bivalve shellfish,” Mr D’Silva said. “They are highly prized for their eating qualities and as bait by marine anglers who use them to target premium table species, such as King George whiting.” Mr D’Silva said most pipis sold in Victoria came from South Australia and NSW. Victoria’s eight commercial licence holders will be limited to harvesting 150kg of pipis a day for eight days of the month with a minimum size of 35mm. “Research has shown pipi stocks fluctuate from year to year due to natural changes in the patterns of coastal currents and winds, which drive the transport of small pipis,” Mr D’Silva said.

Bayside councils are anti-fishing and boating Frankston, Mornington Peninsula and other bayside councils charge exorbitant fees to use boat ramps and car parks even though most were constructed with funds from boat and trailer registration fees. Mornington Peninsula Shire Council is probably the worst and has demonstrated it is against boaties and fisherman. In other areas tourist boaties and fisherman are welcomed and ramps and car parks are free and well maintained. The shire procrastinated when the Westernport Angling Club applied for a permit to build clubrooms on the foreshore but gave permission to the Coast Guard whose application was in first. The council eventually granted permission for a small building with public toilets attached. The council then proposed a tourist attraction (the Otama submarine) and wanted more than a third of the car parking spaces and the removal of the angling club building and toilets. The club was forced to go to arbitration to save the building from being removed and, thankfully, the decision went in the club’s favour and the [VCAT] member commented that it was a proper use of the foreshore precinct. The council has now put forward a draft Hasting Foreshore Precinct Plan which includes removing the club’s building and altering launching ramp accessibility and parking. At the height of the fishing season there can be in excess of 500 boats and associated cars and trailers on any day over the weekend. There has been no consultation with the angling club whose members have alternative ideas to improve the area. Some of the council’s ideas could create dangerous situations for both the users of the facilities and the public. It seems the council is using the precinct plan

to rid the foreshore of the club’s building. There are alternatives which would add more car parking places and be more user friendly. Chris Garnar, Hastings

Safety backlash Is this an exercise in futility or what? Or is it bureaucratic “witchery” at it’s best? VicRoads is conducting its “road safety project” on the Mornington Peninsula freeway, ripping out existing native vegetation which will be replaced with a cable barrier. All very fine for cars, not so fine for motorcyclists who will probably be sliced open should they be unfortunate enough to slide into the barrier. Now, on top of this, VicRoads will remove the trees enabling oncoming cars to temporarily blind oncoming motorists. This to me is more like a “road unsafety program”. But wait, there’s more. After they ripping the trees out, VicRoads intend to start a replanting program in autumn. No thought was given to the devastation it was going to inflict on the wildlife inhabiting these trees. The machine being used apparently has the capability of ripping out the trees and mulching them in one swift movement, giving the possums and birdlife very little chance of survival. It was reported to me that because of the mayhem it has caused, the machine has been halted. This, presumably, was to give the wildlife a chance to be relocated. These projects all look very fine on paper but then all common sense and reality gets discarded. John Cain, McCrae

Erosion dangers The stone and concrete seawall in Blairgowrie is now in serious danger of being undermined be seawater washing in behind the wall. This only adds to the ultimate threat to Point Nepean Rd as the foreshore is rapidly been eaten told citizens worrying about energy security that the problem with our utilities in Australia is that they are a direct consequence of the recent mindless fascination by Liberal and Labor governments with privatisation of anything of any value, once owned by the people of Australia (“Alarm over possible power loss” The News 3/10/17). Of course the wasted years of indecision by the present and former federal Liberal governments on a renewable energy target or a price on carbon, have lead to uncertainty for energy providers when making decisions on future investment for new electricity generation. It is astounding that The News found it worthwhile to give space to this political advertisement. A simple mea culpa by Neale Burgess would have sufficed. Rupert Steiner, Balnarring Beach

All about mercy It really makes my blood boil when anti-choice, anti-euthanasia people, who don’t state clearly their religious associations, would put a poor darling animal out of its needless misery and suffering and yet would still totally deny a non-religious, needlessly suffering person the voluntary legal rights to voluntary euthanasia, thereby giving the needless sufferer the right to die peacefully with dignity (“Survival a priority” Letters 26/9/17). It is mercy killing only, not murder. Sharon Bayer, Frankston

away. Pathetic attempts to dump some rocks along the beach have achieved nothing. Some really serious thought needs to be instigated into what and when action will be taken to arrest the deterioration of the foreshore and ultimately the road. Steve Hill, Blairgowrie How things change and yet still stay the same. Overseas news from soldiers serving in France, local accidents and scandals; Frankston people were also fundraising but on a smaller scale, even information about changes to train timetables sounds familiar. Thank you for such an enjoyable section of the paper. Jean Grey, Frankston

Dangerous turn Green Island Av, Mt Martha is probably the most densely populated road on the Mornington Peninsula. It was originally an unmade road with large blocks and then allowed to be subdivided for unit developments. That’s OK, I live in one, but the [Mornington Peninsula Shire] council allowed the developers to put a sealed road in without a proper left hand turn lane into Green Island Av from one of the busiest roads, Nepean Highway. There are six intersections from Benton’s Rd to Craigie Rd and Green Island Av is the only one without a proper left hand turn lane. It is frightening waiting to be rear ended. Pools of water lie there after rain, causing the surface to break up. This is a disgrace when the amount of rates council get from properties in the avenue is enormous. I have contacted council, [federal Flinders MP] Greg hunt, the state transport minister (I can’t remember his name) and they have all hand balled it to VicRoads, where the response is that there has not been an accident yet. What a joke. In the words of a great football coach, someone at the council should “do Something”. Albert Mew, Mt Martha

ON THE COVER

//////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////

BREATHTAKING VIEWS OF THE BAY AND BEYOND SITUATED in a coveted location and showcasing a spectacular vista across the rooftops to Port Phillip Bay, this provincial mansion – architecturally designed by Nicholas Day - is set on a large 900 square metre corner allotment surrounded by landscaped gardens. From the moment you open the ornate copper doors and step into the Travertine marble entry, the clean lines of the spacious open plan living and dining room will take your breath away. Polished jarrrah timber floors positively gleam and are resplendent underneath a soaring 4.5 metre ceiling that accentuates the sense of space to epic proportions. Incorporated into the space is a crisp designer kitchen with a welcoming amount of cupboard space, sleek stone bench tops and a range of quality stainless steel appliances include a dishwasher and an enormous oven with cooktop. The walls of floor to ceiling glass doors allow you to take full advantage of the unrestricted views of the bay, through to the Heads, and even right up to the Melbourne skyline from inside the living area or the magnificent alfresco balcony with chequerboard tiles and full glass balustrades. At ground level is a second lounge room and the four fabulous bedrooms; three of which share the splendid main bathroom, whilst the larger master bedroom takes pride of place with a toe toasting gas log-effect fire and a luxurious ensuite that is complete with steam room. If a break from exquisite terrace living is required then, with summer approaching, there is always the superb in-ground pool area with expansive timber decking ensconced in a private garden setting to enjoy. Other external features include the excellent three car garage with remote doors and extra storage space, and the generous block also provides additional parking for a boat and trailer. n

HEALTHCARE PROFESSIONALS

Pastoral care for our patients WHEN we think of hospitals we usually think of them providing physical healing and improving a patient’s physical health and outcomes- but what about their spiritual wellbeing? That is where Pastoral Services can come in. Here at St John of God Frankston Rehabilitation Hospital, a holistic approach to patient care is embraced and a team of specially trained Pastoral Practitioners are available to provide spiritual support. This can take many forms, from non-judgemental listening, someone to share personal hopes and dreams with, bereavement support, family support, prayer and ritual, guided relaxation and spiritual counselling. Importantly Pastoral Services are available to all patients at the hospital, irrespective of cultural background or religious tradition or no professed religion. We currently have a weekly guided relaxation and a prayer service, which both provide an opportunity to unwind, reconnect and ground oneself. Not only are pastoral services varied, but our understanding of what “spiritual” means varies as well. Traditional ideas of people being either religious or not religious no longer work for modern Australian society. Instead we understand that spirituality has a much broader meaning than just religion, although,

importantly it can be that too. Spirituality can be understood as that which gives our lives meaning and purpose, which might be family, friends, philosophy, adventure, nature, art, music, pets - Pastoral Services are about valuing and honouring that individual experience. When patients come to our rehabilitation hospital, they have often already had quite a journey health wise, which can leave patients feeling spiritually and emotionally depleted. Our Pastoral Practitioners help to build up their resilience. Some of the issues, which are raised, include fear, loneliness, trauma, existential queries and questions of existence, how to accept transition and change, grief and loss. The other side of that being we support patients who experience joy, happiness, relief, a sense of achievement, or who want to review their sense of meaning in life. Working in Pastoral Services is such a privilege as we work with patients who open up to us and share precious parts of themselves and their inspiring stories. Our spirituality is such a huge part of who we are, it is great to be able to work as part of a team who really appreciates and values the whole person in their recovery and the role that Pastoral Services can play in that.

THE MEANING OF EXISTENCE... AND OTHER SHORT STORIES

An Open Letter To RoboCorey, With Love

By Stuart McCullough Sigh. Deep inside, I think I knew this moment would come. But now that it’s finally here, there’s something about it that’s just so bone crushingly, spirit sappingly, mind-numbingly, bowel shakingly, gut-churningly, soul slappingly predictable that it simply can’t be allowed to pass without comment. When news broke that you’re going to robo-call a million households and tell them that the sky’s about to fall in, the first thing that entered my mind was: but of course! My question wasn’t why you were about to impose your dulcet tones on unwitting households across the nation, disrupting countless dinners and re-runs of The Bachelorette. Not at all. My question was: why hasn’t this happened sooner? Now that you’ve declared your intentions to verbally spam pretty much the entire country, I’m going to be desperately disappointed if I pick up the phone and it isn’t you. Already I’ve hung up on my father just in case you were trying to call. Because, dear Corey, we deserve it. We, as a nation, should hear your mellifluous voice every time we answer the phone. That’s because we’re all in need of a good, stiff talking too. Then and only then will we see good, old-fashioned common sense take it rightful place as the thing that binds together, and drags us forward into the past. I only hope that this is the beginning of some long-overdue diversification on your part. I can see Corey Bernardi GPS systems or perhaps you as the new Siri, but instead of offering to help, you’d let us know why we ought to be ashamed of ourselves. Which, I think, could be useful. My only hope is that this isn’t a one off. Used well, Robo-Corey could become our very own homegrown version of ‘Rick rolling’, but instead of unexpected bursts of ‘Never Gonna Give You Up’, we’d be treated to a treatise on how the world’s going to hell in a handcart and life, in general, is completely in the toilet. Whether at home or at work, I think we should all get used to the idea that, any time, any one of us might be totally Bernardied each time we answer the phone. I am a little disappointed though. That you’re not making a million phone calls personally and have outsourced the heavy lifting to a robot is a total letdown. If nothing else, it limits the opportunity for meaningful dialogue. In fact, the whole robo-call thing is more or less the ideological equivalent of a hit and run. Granted, I appreciate the irony. To complain about the prospect of having to deal with a mechanical, heartless piece of machinery that doesn’t listen to reason or Corey Bernardi ignores the fact that it may be difficult

to spot the difference. But credit where credit is due. By this action, you have thrown down the gauntlet to the nation’s musicians and DJs. I can only wonder how long it will be before your recorded message is sampled and turned into a remix that sets the country’s dance floors alight. Personally speaking, I think it would sound marvelous as a spoken-word breakdown in the middle of Sylvester’s ‘You Make Me Feel (Mighty Real)’. I find it oddly comforting. The idea that your message should be sampled, cut up and repackaged and danced to by young people with their shirts off is a truly glorious thing. Not that there aren’t risks. What if Robo-Corey goes rogue? It’s not too hard to imagine the digital Bernardi going all HAL 9000 on us and refusing to obey logic. (Not dissimilar to the actual Corey in that respect.) In fact, I can see computer-Corey breaking free of its digital shackles and roaming the streets, flipping cars, crushing post boxes and destroying ‘Yes’ advocates with his laser beam eyes. Before long, techno-Corey will rule over all of us, a terrifying technological overlord who makes Kim Jong-un look laidback in comparison. Perhaps I’m getting slightly ahead of myself. Before computer Corey rises up to seize the reigns of power, there’s still the matter of these phone calls. As I understand it, the computer will ask people to indicate which way they intend to vote in the marriage equality survey. Chances are, those that disagree with you will never make it that far through the phone call. Meaning that the only people who’ll follow the prompts all the way to the bitter end are those that agree with you. It’d be disappointing if this was groundwork intended to challenge the legitimacy of the result in the event that that it doesn’t go your way. Perhaps I’m being cynical. Or maybe I’ve simply learned to be wary of technology ever since I saw Electric Dreams as a teenager and was subsequently scarred for life. As much as I’m looking forward to being robospammed by you, I’d rather talk to you directly. Because, dear Corey, I’m a little disappointed in you. Ever since you split off to become Australia’s misery-guts in chief, I feel that your outlook has been unforgivably bleak. There’s just no call for that kind of pessimism. People are, at heart, optimistic I think. So my quite human and not at all robotic message to you is simple: surprise me. See the best in people. See potential, see commitment, see optimism. See human nature as something more good than bad. I dare you. stuart@stuartmccullough.com Mornington News 10 October 2017

band of patriotic women and those who so thoughtfully and generously provided their very best, the immense work entailed was made comparatively easy. The smooth and good natured way these entertainments are carried out, reflects great credit on the women of Frankston, The Hall being engaged, Mr Bradbury was approached and he kindly obliged the committee by allowing them to take over The Fernery for the day. This proved an ideal spot for the entertainment, which besides its innumerable beauties, allowed space for the whole body of men to be seated at one time. It was a unique and picturesque spectacle and one that will not be soon forgotten, when the 300 stalwart soldiers found their places at the tables on which was provided a feast which was evidently enjoyed by all. Madam Cravilli welcomed the party on behalf of the Wattle Club. One of the soldiers who could speak English, thanked all who had shown them such kindness. The Langwarrin Band, through the courtesy of Major Conder, was in attendance, and played excellent music during the afternoon. While afternoon tea was in progress several items were contributed which were listened to with apparent enjoyment. The songs contributed by Mrs Mann, Master Malcolm and five or six little girls were much appreciated. Mrs W P. Mason ably played the accompaniments. Madam Creevilli has presented the Club with several very fine French photos.

Brittain ‘goes whack’ in season opener PROVINCIAL

By IT Gully REIGNING MPCA champion Baxter has started its defence in the new MPCA Provincial competition with an emphatic 34-run win against Langwarrin. And defending cricketer of the year and league medallist Chris Brittain has taken off where he left us all last season, spellbound by his brilliance. Brittain opened the innings with Joe

Rule (44) and belted eight sixes and six fours on his way to 106 before he was eventually run-out with the score on 173. Baxter went on to score 8/200. Matt Prosser (2/37) and coach Jake Prosser (2/33) were the pick of the Langwarrin bowlers. The Kangas were never in with a shout to win the match, despite 50 from skipper Travis Campbell and a wagging tail, which included Simon McEvoy with 16. Ben Brittain was the pick of the Bax-

ter bowlers with 3/36 from six overs. Sorrento has started its season as well as it could have, scoring a comfortable victory against Crib Point. The Sharks won the toss and sent the home side into bat, where Luke Herrington top scored with 46 and skipper Jacob Cook hit 18. Sorrento skipper Bobby Wilson was superb with ball in hand for his side, snaring 3/17 from eight overs, while new Sri Lankan recruit Chathupama Gunasinghe was wicketless on debut.

In reply, Liam O’Connor hit 49, Wilson 31 and CJ King 33 to guide the visitors to victory in the 39th over, 6/158 to 6/155. Mt Eliza has put the heartbreak of 2016-17 behind it and started the season in great fashion against Pearcedale, winning with five overs to spare. Pearcedale batted first and made 8/133 from 40 overs, Shayne Gillings top scoring with 35 and Matt Cousland scoring 33. A returning Chris McDonough was

superb with the ball for the Mounties, picking-up 2/28, while Nick Baron (2/35) and skipper Justin Grant (2/22) also had an impact on the match. In reply, it’s fair to say that there were a number of contributors without a stand-out in the Mt Eliza chase. Tim Clarke top scored at the top of the order with 27, Grant hit 22, Keith Biggs 20 and Josh Goudge 19. Will Kennedy was the best of the Pearcedale bowlers with 2/15 from eight overs.

Eagles off to a flying start PENINSULA

On front foot: Pines go its season off to a winning start against Delacome Park. Picture: Andrew Hurst

By IT Gully BOOM Somerville recruit Jayde Herrick guided his side to a round one victory against reigning premier Red Hill in MPCA Peninsula cricket. The former Victorian Bushrangers paceman opened the batting and scored 41 at the top of the innings, helping the Eagles to 156 after winning the toss and batting first. Andrew West provided some middle order support with 22 while Jay Parker came in at the end and added a valuable 18 runs. The Colletts were reunited at the Hill with Tom opening the bowling after returning from Kingston-Hawthorn for a return of 3/27, while his brother Glenn bowled eight overs for 0/29. Jimmy McCall claimed 3/11 from eight overs to be the pick of the bowlers while Simon Dart snared a couple. Herrick then came out with the oneday white ball and was sensational, snaring 3/12 from eight overs to highlight how dominant he is going to be this season. Sean Parker and Cameron Mills both picked-up two wickets as the home side ripped through the Hillmen, bowling them out for just 56. Matt Merifield top scored with 15, while Simon Dart was stumped first ball by Craig Black off the bowling Mills. Main Ridge got its season away to a flying start but it came on the back of no contribution from former Victorian opener Nick Jewell. Whilst Jewell was removed for two

and Shaun Foster didn’t take part, the Ridge was still able to get the job done against Flinders by 13 runs, 7/193 to 5/180. It was the work of Travis Barker (62) and league legend Gareth Wyatt (67) who steered the Ridge to victory in the middle order. In reply, the Sharks started well with Mason Mail opening with 32 and Tom Clements scoring 76 from 82 balls. However, the home team’s bowling was tight, led by James Abbott with 3/28 from eight overs. Long Island chased down the 135 needed to beat Moorooduc, scoring 4/136 with nine overs to spare. Skipper Aaron Paxton top scored with 43, Brad Baily scored 22 and Michael Burke was unbeaten on 28 when the winning runs were scored. Earlier, Jake Middleton picked-up 4/27 from his eight allotted overs, while Lachy Dobson did not pick up a wicket on debut for the Islanders. Pines got its season away to a positive start under new coach Adrian Mack, winning comfortably against Delacombe Park. After being sent into bat, the Piners made 7/183, Ash Hupe top scoring with 52, Harley Peace-Stirling hitting 40 and Chris Bartczac helping himself to 37. In reply, the Parkers were never in the hunt, Pat Jackson opening the bowling for Pines with a return of 3/26, while Nick Wilcox snared 2/13 from 5.2 overs. Harley Parker and Connor Jackson picked up two wickets each.

Braves smash Tigers first up DISTRICT

By IT Gully BADEN Powell has launched its 2017-18 District season in the best way possible, beating Seaford Tigers with ease. Whilst the Braves didn’t set the world on fire after being sent into bat first, it still managed to score a defendable 141 from 39.2 overs. Elia Carter top-scored for the Braves with 26 from 36 balls, Ryan Barnett hit 20 at the top of the order

PAGE 56

Mornington News

while Charlie Collopy hit 20 at the bottom of the order. Matty Roach snared 2/37 on debut for the Tigers, while Jack Brooking picked-up 2/18 from eight overs. In reply, the Tigers were never a chance. Ash Mills scored 26 opening the innings and Anthony Joel hit 15 runs. The Tigers were bowled out for just 78. Nathan Rice was sensational for the Braves, taking 5/14 from eight overs, while Julian Pharaoh pickedup 2/1 off 2.2 overs.

10 October 2017

Heatherhill made light work of Mt Martha, winning by almost 60 runs. The Hills batted first after being sent in and the top order delivered, Sam Mullavey scoring 50, Steven O’Donnell 42 and Kristian Miller 22, while star Matty Meagher came in and scored 44 to help lift his side to a strong target of 6/192. Heatherhill’s bowlers then got to work, restricting the Reds to just 7/134 from 40 overs. Kade Bendle top-scored for the

home side with 27 while Jarred Wolsgrove scored 24 and Steve O’Neill 21. Jake Theobald and Luke Whitmore were the pick of the bowlers for Heatherhill with 2/8 from eight and 2/29 from eight overs respectively. Hastings started the season in the worst possible fashion, belted by almost 100 runs by Seaford. Seaford batted first and recorded 9/176, Dean Polson top scoring with 55, skipper Ryan McQueen opening with 32 and Chris Cleef 25.

Blues coach Rob Hearn snared 3/39 and Tom Finn helped himself to 3/30. In reply, the Blues top order failed. Sean Hewitt and Finn top scored with 15 runs each. In the battle of the neighbours, between Rye and Rosebud, the Demons may have recruited well in the off-season but it made little difference to the Demons’ start to the season. Rye was smashed by Rosebud on Saturday by 76 runs.

Knights win a thriller SUB-DISTRICT

By IT Gully BALLAM Park has walked away from a thrilling match against Frankston YCW with a victory in MPCA Sub District. The Knights batted first after being sent into bat and David Cross got his side going with 56, while Jake Williams opened with 21 and Zac Clements hit 17. Levi McLoughlin-Dore and Brett Hudgson did everything they could for the Stonecats to get their side over the line but they fell short, bowled out for 139, chasing the Knights 7/151. Justin Moore was the pick of the

bowlers for the home side, picking-up 4/23 from 7.4 overs, while Cross was also impressive with 2/14 from eight overs. Dromana got the win against Tyabb in a one-sided affair. After bowling the Yabbies out for just 96, the Hoppers then took just 23 overs to pick-up the runs required for victory. Jack Fowler took 3/33 with the ball for the Hoppers and skipper Kieren Voelkl snared 3/15 from eight overs. With the bat, it was Fowler and Voelkl who did the damage also, scoring 38 and 33 respectively. Balnarring started in fantastic fashion against Skye, picking up a 75-run win to hand new coach Mal

Coutts his first victory. Mark Walles and Jackson Hannah each scored 39 for the Saints while Coutts scored 33 on debut to set the opposition 188 for victory (7/187). Justin Brown was then the pick of the bowlers for the Saints, snaring three wickets. Carrum chased down the 5/177 required for victory against Carrum Downs. Dale O’Neil scored 54 and Corey Hand 50 as the Lions chased down the runs with two overs and seven wickets in hand. Adam Mikkelsen top-scored for the Cougars with 39 and Jayden Barker and Leon McConnell put on a 49-run opening partnership.

Can Heart hold on to ‘The Green Machine’? SOCCER

By Craig MacKenzie THE greatest goalscorer in Victorian senior ranks and a founder member of Rosebud Heart may be on the move. English ace David Greening won his eighth straight Golden Boot award this year, a record that may never be matched, but the goals king may have worn Heart’s colours for the last time. “It’s all up in the air really,” said Greening. Heart has to find a replacement for senior coach Scott Morrison who stood down at season’s end and it also has to find a new home ground. “I don’t think they quite realise just how big a loss Scott is and playing at Truemans Rd is not an option anymore. The surface is horrendous,” Greening added. “Being part of Rosebud Heart when we set it up and being close to Scott are big things for me but at this stage, I don’t know who they’re going to get in and where they’ll be playing. “Usually at this time of year I know where I’ll be playing but I think there are a lot of players (at Heart) at the moment waiting to see what happens before they commit to anything.” There’s talk that Heart could move to Olympic Park Reserve in Besgrove St but Bayside club Rosebud uses the facility and it’s understood there is resistance to a soccer co-tenancy. “It makes sense all round to play at Besgrove St because you have an existing facility with everything you need. “I believe that the club is in touch with the council but Mornington council is not pro-soccer judging from my dealings with them.” A Greening move to another club would be a seismic event in local soccer circles and the man dubbed “The Green Machine” reckons he has two more seasons of senior soccer remaining. “Yes I think I’ve two more good seasons in me and I want to enjoy them.” Two more seasons may mean 10 straight Golden Boot awards as league leading scorer but Greening expects to miss at least three games next season while on his honeymoon. “I’ve not had anyone contact me about next year yet so I guess they simply assume that I’ll be staying at Heart but I want to see what happens first. “I’d like to try and get another promotion before I stop playing and I’d like to play for a coach I know.”

Heart trouble: Star striker David Greening is yet to commit to playing for a fourth straight season with Rosebud Heart. Picture: John Punshon

Greening and goals go hand in hand. It has been so ever since he started honing his skills as a teenager at Newport FC and Brading Town on the Isle of Wight, having two spells with the latter. He also spent time with Eastleigh on the English mainland, a club that currently competes in the Vanarama National League. That background allowed Greening to hit the ground running as soon as he landed on our shores. He was joint top scorer in State 3 North-West in 2010 with 22 goals but he only played 16 games for La Trobe University due to the demands of a graduate diploma in teaching. The following year he took up a posting at Boneo Primary School and has been the physical education teacher there ever since. “When I first came to the peninsula I had a training session with Mornington but I didn’t feel like I was going to play every week. “I was 28 at the time and didn’t fancy sitting on the bench so the coach Adam Jamieson got in touch

with ‘Squizzy’ Taylor who was at Seaford and I went down there and played in a friendly against Baxter and got on really well with the lads.” Apart from a two-match cameo with Casey Comets, Greening spent four seasons at Seaford rewriting the scoring charts. He made 17 appearances for Seaford in 2011 scoring 27 goals (five in Cup matches), 21 appearances in 2012 scoring 26 goals, 22 appearances in 2013 scoring 43 goals (1 Cup goal), and 16 appearances in 2014 scoring 25 goals (two Cup goals). He has just completed his third season with Heart and his thirst for goals shows no sign of being quenched. In 2015 he made 18 appearances scoring 47 goals (three Cup goals), in 2016 he made 18 appearances scoring 29 goals (five Cup goals) and this year he made 21 appearances scoring 32 goals (five Cup goals). In all Greening has played 151 matches in Victoria and scored 251 goals.

“It’s not been a great season for the club or for me as it’s been a bit stop-start. “We started off the pre-season with a decent squad but serious injuries to ‘Pooley’ (Adam Poole) and ‘Sodda’ (Simon O’Donnell) set us back because they were really big losses. “I suppose though if someone had said at the start of the year that you’d stay in State 4 comfortably you’d probably have taken it.” No doubt Skye United is among a group of prospective Greening suitors as it is keen to go one better than its 2017 effort which saw it just miss out on promotion from State 3 South-East. The Billy Armour-led outfit already has been linked with Baxter striker Liam Kilner. Skye seems certain to lose defender Dan Utting and attacking midfielder Wumjock Jock who are moving to Bairnsdale and Traralgon respectively. Another player likely to move is Rosebud Heart goalkeeper Sean Skelly. Heart is keen to hold on to its star

custodian but Casey Comets and Baxter have shown interest. Skelly is believed to be undecided about his playing future and he may choose to become more involved in an off-field role with former club Langwarrin. Skelly currently serves on the Langy committee. Recent rumours about a coaching change at Mornington were well off the mark when the club reappointed senior coach Adam Jamieson and assistant Dale White last week. Jamieson has spoken to some senior players and some prospective signings and offers are on the table for key players Ryan Paczkowski and Sammy Orritt. But Paczkowski’s future at Dallas Brooks Park is uncertain and NPL outfit Oakleigh Cannons has made a huge play for the former Bentleigh Greens star. Meanwhile, Langwarrin is holding trials at Lawton Park this week for under-12s, under-13s, under-14s and under-16s. Trials for the under-18s and under-20s will also be at Lawton Park and will start on Monday 23 October at 7pm. Triallists should go to the club’s website or Facebook page and register online and triallists are asked to arrive at least 30 minutes before the start of each session. Late last week Langy completed its coaching roster with the announcement that Mitchell Ball would be in charge of one of its two under-12 squads. Ball holds an AFC level C coaching licence and was assistant coach of Bulleen’s under-16s this year. Southern United has been rocked with news that award-winning senior co-coaches Rob Giabardo and Bill Mihaloudis have joined local rival Bayside United. Southern’s board of management was only made aware of the move last Friday night. Under-18s coach George Perpina has moved to Springvale White Eagles while Debbie Nichols, Emma Bracken and Aaron Myatt seem certain to remain on the coaching staff. The structure of teams for the women’s NPL has changed and next year Southern will field teams at under-12, under-14, under-16, under-19 and senior levels. The club expects to start trials on Monday 16 October at Monterey Reserve and triallists can register at southernunitedfc.com.au online.

Young basketballer ‘gives back’ to juniors By Ben Triandafillou IT is not uncommon to see players take up the clipboard once their careers are well and truly over but 15-yearold country basketballer Liam Porter has a foot in both camps following a successful first foray into elite country coaching. After earning his place in the Victoria Country under-16 team which headed to Perth in July for the national championships, Porter, of Dromana, has continued to add to his basketball resume. He traded his Southern Peninsula Sharks and Vic Country gear for a clipboard as the Sundowners boys head coach at the Basketball Victoria Country Jamboree, held in Echuca on 23-26 September. While most teenagers are keen on fixing their own game, especially when they’re already at the elite state representative level, it gave Porter a great deal of excitement to give back to the country pathways that have and are doing so much for him. It’s a fair bit on one basketball plate to juggle, but Porter wouldn’t have it any other way. “It’s been really good - I’m used to being on court myself but it’s really good to give back a little bit to the kids

and share my knowledge as a player,” Porter said. “I love the experience, I love Country Vic and love what they do and the friendships that are made are awesome and I love being able to learn something every time I’m on the floor so I wanted to give back.” It’s all about education and insight for the young guard, who has an eye on the future with starting his coaching credentials early. “I reckon so – I thought I’d give it a crack and I’d give the more experienced a bit of a run for their money and I’m definitely learning every time I’m on the floor and I’m ready to see how far it takes me,” he said. “It has shown me a lot of different ways of learning and different ways to communicate my knowledge to the boys; everyone learns in different ways and I’ve learned ways to communicate that.” Not only did he put the Sundowners through their paces across the four-day high performance camp, but he kept up his own elite training with high performance country coach Justin Schueller on hand at the Jamboree to put him and other Country Vic junior stars through their paces across the week.

Soccer star secures national championship By Ben Triandafillou IT HAS been a massive year for up and coming 14-year-old soccer player, Patrick Hogan, whose endless hours of training has taken him to the peak of junior soccer in Australia. The Padua College student returned from Coffs Harbour on Sunday 1 October after taking out the National Youth Championships title with the Victorian under-14s side. Starting the trials in January with 200 other young soccer players, Hogan made his way through to the final cut for the Victorian side and was picked to represent the state in the final squad of 16. Hogan, who played this season with the Mornington Soccer Club, came out firing with the Victorian team to defeat Canberra in the opening round 8-1. The side then suffered their first and only loss in their second round to NSW, going down 3-0. Following their loss, the Victorian side regained momentum and went on a scoring frenzy to defeat Queensland 3-1, South Australia 4-1, Western Australia 3-1 and Northern NSW 1-0 to take home the national title. Hogan said all the hard-work throughout the year had definitely paid off when Victoria was awarded the title. “It was pretty amazing. You spend the whole year with a bit of stress and then you finally get the email telling you that you’ve made it,” he said. “It’s a pretty good feeling.” “Playing on the International Stadium and walking out through the tunnels was amazing and the grass was perfect.” During the trials, Hogan was scouted by Melbourne Victory’s Academy Director, Paulo Cardoso, who offered him the chance to join

MT Eliza Cricket Club will run a “Drive for 25” fundraiser on Friday afternoon to raise money for practice nets at Emil Madsen Reserve. The fundraiser will be from midday to 3pm upstairs at Canadian Bay Hotel and will feature four performers – former Test cricketer and Mornington resident Bryce McGain, singer Tiana Martel with her accompanist, guitarist Kieran Ryan-Colton, and sports writer and commentator Geoff Poulter of Voices of Sport fame. One of the club’s assistant coaches, Ken

Piesse, who is also a sports writer and sporting books author, will MC the event. The club, which has 13 teams and more than 200 members, is aiming to raise $25,000 to build some new practice nets. Silent auction items will include sporting memorabilia and a sunset cruise in a couta boat from Blairgowrie to Point Nepean and return. Tickets cost $75 and include a two-course meal. For further information contact club president, Tristan McDougal, on 0412 025 080 or email tristanmcdougal@gmail.com

Mt Eliza ‘well represented’ in Stingrays sides

Victory’s under-15s side next year. “The Coffs Harbour team still hadn’t been chosen and after one of the training sessions he ran after me when I left the change rooms to tell me that Victory wanted to offer me a spot,” Hogan said. “It’s pretty amazing to be asked. They’ll be a really strong side to play with.” Hogan went to AAMI Park on Monday for a meeting and will likely start pre-season training with the team in the next few weeks. Hogan was also scouted by Melbourne City at the Youth Championships to join their under-18s side but has chosen to sign a scholarship with Victory, his favourite A-League team.

Peninsula Cup enters its second round SOME of Victoria’s top boxers will square up in the second annual Peninsula Boxing Cup this Saturday at the Mt Eliza Community Hall. There will be 26 fights on the stacked card, including five from Peninsula Boxing. Victorian champion and six time Australian champion, Jack Gipp, will face Jamie Bott in his final fight before heading into the Commonwealth Games trials in NSW in the first week of November. Two other Victorian champs will also hit the ring, with 2016 Rio Olympian Jason Whateley from Peninsula Boxing going up against the Super Heavyweight champion Toese Siuto. This will also be a lead-up fight for Whateley as he heads to the Commonwealth Games trials. Father and daughter, Scott and Tyla McDonald, from Peninsula Boxing, will fight on the same

Cricket club’s “Drive for 25”

card for the second time this year. Tyla who earlier this year was crowned an Australian champion will face Charlie Mirtschin while Scott will face Andrew Young for the Masters over-40 Victorian Heavyweight title. Having been inspired by his brother’s recent success, Rueben “Hurricane” Higgins, brother of the undefeated professional boxer, Lochie Higgins, will make his debut against Charlie Edney. Peninsula Boxing head coach Marcos Amado said the event should be a good showcase for the boxing talent on the Peninsula. Doors will open at 12-noon ahead of the opening fight at 12:30pm. Tickets are available at the door for $25 for adults and $15 for children and pensioners.

THE Mt Eliza Football Club had 13 representatives at the V/Line Regional Football Championships two weeks ago which were played in Morwell and Moe. The club had three players, James Thomas, Saige Bayne and Darcy Fennell who were selected for the V/Line carnival team of the year with some standout performances as well as Keeley Byrne awarded with the best on ground against Gippsland Power. Lucy Cripps, an ex-Mt Eliza footballer who now plays for the Frankston Dolphins, was also selected for the team of the year. The ‘redlegs’ filled more than a quarter of the under-16 girls Peninsula Stingrays side with seven players from the club joining the team as well as Eloise Allen-Burns and Saige Bayne chosen as vice-captains. The Stingrays girls’ side was narrowly beaten

by two points in the opening round against Geelong Falcons but then went on to defeat Gippsland Power by 30 points in the second round. Mt Eliza Junior Football Club vice president/ football operations, Brett Macpherson, said the number of Mt Eliza girls making the V/Line side this year is a great reflection of the women’s football development at the club. “We have been well represented this year and having seven girls make the side is a great achievement considering we had two female players make it last year,” he said. Mt Eliza was also represented by six boys in the under-15s Peninsula Stingrays team. Bayleigh Welsh captained the side but suffered a 122-point defeat in the opening round to the Geelong Falcons. The Stingrays then went on to be narrowly defeated by five points to the Western Bulldogs NGA.

The rise, fall, and rise of the Frankston Football Club By Brodie Cowburn FOR most football fans, 30 September 2016 was a day of excitement and anticipation. With the AFL Grand Final one day away many were stocking up on frozen sausage rolls and cheap grocery store meats for their Grand Final barbecues. No matter if you spent the day buying beer, drinking beer, or making room in your fridge for even more beer, the chances are that whatever you were doing as a football fan on Grand Final eve 2016, you were doing it quite happily. But for fans of the Frankston Dolphins, the day was far from happy. It was the darkest day in their team’s history. After five decades of competing in the VFL, the club’s licence was revoked by the league and its followers faced their first day backing a club without a competition to play in. The Dolphins had operated for 130 years, and on 30 September 2016, all they had to show for it was a massive debt and a group of despondent supporters. “We were sort of a bit devastated,” Frankston Football Club president and club champion Peter Geddes said of that fateful day. “I guess we were a bit lost because people didn’t quite know what to do.” “We had heard rumours that they were looking at taking our licence, and so we went in there actually full of hope because we just thought that we would be able to save it. We went there with a presentation to submit to AFL Victoria to say that we can continue the club, but they were of a different view.” Despite the efforts of people like Geddes to save the side, the club found its future shattered. Despite meetings with the AFL to plead their case, the debt at the Dolphins was too large to ignore and the decision was made to pull the plug. The decision to deny the Dolphins a place in the 2017 VFL season should have been enough to see them become nothing more than a relic of footballing history. It would have been easy to roll over and let the club die but the team at Frankston wasn’t going down without a fight. To ensure its survival, the club had a lot of work to do. To have any chance of impressing AFL Victoria and being readmitted, it would have to review its entire operation. To help with the daunting process back to VFL football, the club appointed former Hawthorn premiership player Gary Buckenara as

general manager. “AFL Victoria had a list of things we had to make sure we were compliant with [to get back in the league],” Buckenara said. This included a business plan “that could prove we could not only survive, but sustain into the future”. In order to avoid the demise the club faced at the end of 2016, it would have to make changes over the next 12 months, with one in particular being a seemingly impossible mission. In a bid to display its passionate fan base to the league, the club set out to raise membership to more than 1000. Despite the need to lift the club’s membership almost 10 times the Dolphins managed to surpass this target. “It was so satisfying; the fact that we went from a club with 100 members with a side, to having 1200 plus without a side. We had all those people believing in us that we were a great club to build and an elite en-

vironment for young players to come through,” Buckenara said. The membership drive was a shining example of the community effort that took place to ensure the Frankston Dolphins had a future with the VFL. “It is so important to have a VFL team here on the peninsula, because it inspires young people right across the Frankston and peninsula region to potentially get involved,” Dunkley MP Chris Crewther said. “There were a lot of fundraising efforts, events, and so forth that ensured through multiple avenues that the club was able to show the backing of the community, which I think was important to show the AFL in terms of getting their licence back.” On 4 August 2017 the Frankston Dolphins were handed a lifeline; AFL Victoria granted them a licence readmitting them to the VFL competition in 2018. For the Dolphins it was a chance to make things right and put their best foot forward for the future.

“We’ve made sure we’ve got a complete board of management, and that we’re working as we go into the future to make sure we have succession planning in place, so that we’ve always got the leadership required,” club president Peter Geddes said. “We’re very visible about where we’re going financially. We now target having thousands of members at some point in the future, and that gives you a really sustainable base.” The Dolphins downfall would have seen a club with a great history of breeding AFL talent disappear, as the side has formerly provided a home for retiring Bulldog great Matthew Boyd, All Australian Demon Michael Hibberd, and premiership coach Luke Beveridge. The club’s success is also a win for independent clubs that remain free of AFL affiliation, an issue which has risen again this year as the North Ballarat Roosters had their licence revoked for 2018. With their readmission, the Dolphins have chosen to

remain an independent side with the aim of making finals in the next five years. Following years of heartbreak and uncertainty, the future of the Frankston Football Club is looking up. The small team working at the club is working hard at returning the side to VFL football in 2018. With the appointment of a new coach expected in the next week, followed soon after by a playing list, the side will be looking to make the most of every opportunity when it appears on a VFL oval next season. “People are just busting for the first game at the ground. We’re hoping to get thousands of people there, and I’m sure we will,” Geddes said. “Just to see the team back out on the field again, it’ll be just really exciting.” Regardless of the outcome of that first game, the survival of the Dolphins is the ultimate underdog story. An independent club winning against seemingly impossible odds.
