Call for seal safety on the beach Keith Platt keith@mpnews.com.au THERE is no doubting the attraction of a seal resting or sunning itself on beaches around the Mornington Peninsula. But the animals are unaware of the excitement and interest they cause and can suffer as a result. Wildlife activists are calling for fresh protocols to manage and protect the seals whenever they are spotted. They say laws aimed at protecting seals are clear but rarely enforced. Harming a seal can attract a $6000 fine or six months’ jail and there are limits to how close people, or dogs are allowed. It is illegal to touch or feed a seal. “Over the past two years seals resting on peninsula beaches have endured crowds of onlookers, dog attacks, jet ski harassment, drunken people riding on them, objects thrown at them, kicked, yelled at, poked and chased back into the water,” Australian Wildlife Protection Council president Craig Thomson said.

ganise a meeting “of all stakeholders … have fallen on deaf ears”. Mr Thomson and the wildlife protection council’s secretary Eve Kelly last week sent out a detailed account of what happened to some of the 171 volunteer alerts for seals from Edithvale to Portsea between December 2016 and March 2018.

“The peninsula community and local wildlife groups are very concerned that if the seals are not protected and a seal acts to protect itself, it may be seen as a risk to public safety and the Department of Environment, Land, Water and Planning (DELWP) may see fit to destroy the animal.” Mr Thomson said “pleas for help” from government authorities to or-

A post on social media told a harrowing tale of “Alfie” and a new puppy “Charlie” being taken for a walk in the off-leash area when the larger dogs attacked. “The dogs turned around and mauled my dog Alfie and ripped pieces out from his behind and had him pinned and screaming of the ground,” the distraught owner posted. “I screamed at [the owner of the attacking dogs] and one of the dogs tried

to come at me and bite me too, but I kicked it and screamed in self defence and it ran away. “The girl knew her dogs were feral from the beginning because she was panicked and was screaming for them to come back to her when she saw her dogs running towards us. Why would someone who knows their dogs are feral let them off a leash with no muzzle in a leash-free dog park?” Alfie was taken for treatment to

the animal emergency hospital in Frankston. The shire’s environment protection manager John Rankine described the situation as “distressing for all parties involved”. “Dog attacks are our highest priority and it is important that we identify the owner of the dogs as soon as possible,” he said. “We are searching our database for dogs of similar appearance … and are calling on community mem-

bers to assist if they can.” The shire has adopted a Domestic Animal Management Plan for the next four years. “Council encourages and promotes responsible pet ownership that fosters a greater harmony and coexistence between pet owners and non-pet owners.” Anyone who saw the dogs in the area or knows where they can be found is asked to call 1300 850 600.

Rethink on pier wave screens Stephen Taylor steve@mpnews.com.au A REDESIGNED wave protection system along the seaward side of Mornington pier will – hopefully, this time – better protect it from storm damage. Workmen were last week drilling 120 holes for supports and using a crane to attach a steel frame, while divers were down below cleaning up the seabed and removing previously damaged steel frames and debris. Parks Victoria engineers said the original waler – a type of brace that attaches the wave screens to the pier – would be replaced with a larger, stronger version, with the wave screens bolted through the panels for additional strength. A new, secondary waler will provide extra reinforcement. Twice the number of top connections will be installed and the bolts will be larger and stronger. If things run to schedule the wave screen panels will be fixed in place by the end of the month and the full wave protection system completed by June “subject to favourable weather and conditions”. The original wave screens were damaged by major storms in July and October 2016, prompting engineers to rethink the design of the system to better withstand the elements. Violent storms in previous years inflicted similar damage. Some sections of the pier will be closed off during the works but the remainder will be kept open. Parks Victoria acting regional director for Melbourne Marine and Maritime Graeme Davis said

Workers watch the removal of concrete panels from Mornington pier which were damaged in the October 2016 storms.

Creative approach: Cr Bev Colomb with Benton Junior College pupils at The Briars. Picture: Supplied

Budding ideas for the future the timing of the works would avoid peak visitor periods and allow construction during milder weather conditions before winter’s onslaught. “The wave protection system has been redesigned and strengthened to ensure the community can have full confidence the wave screens will withstand future storm events,” he said. “There will be some restricted access to the pier for public safety, however, we are expecting the disruptions will mostly be on the ocean side of the pier. “Parks Victoria would like to thank the community for their patience while the repair works are carried out.”

School

PUPILS from Benton Junior College took a creative approach when submitting their ideas for the future of The Briars. The grade 4 pupils took their pens, and in some cases paintbrushes, to detail what they’d like to see long-term at the historic Mt Martha property. They were responding to a call from Mornington Peninsula Shire for community feedback and ideas to assist in the development of a master plan for The Briars, with the mayor Cr Bryan Payne saying it would look 10-15 years into the future. “The plan will articulate how the natural, cultural and heritage values of The Briars and the Mornington Peninsula will be celebrated,” he said. “Well done to these students on making the effort to share your ideas. I encourage all of our

local schools to do the same and share their vision for The Briars”. Briars Ward councillor Bev Colomb said: “I enjoyed meeting some of the Benton Junior College students. Their interest and enthusiasm towards the future of The Briars is greatly appreciated. Hopefully, we can capture some of their ideas in future planning.” Visitors to the 230 hectare property can walk among wildlife or become immersed in history with a tour through the heritage homestead. The shire nursery has a range of native and indigenous plants for home gardens, while the Eco-Living Display Centre offers tips and tricks for efficiency at home. A draft master plan will be presented to the council and community for further consultation later this year. Details: Visit mornpen.vic.gov.au/thebriars

Easter drivers break drink laws Stephen Taylor steve@mpnews.com.au

Multiple offences

THE police traffic Operation Nexus held over the Easter holiday period tested 11,474 drivers for drink-anddrug driving across Frankston and the Mornington Peninsula. The state-wide operation, which ran from late on the Thursday before Easter to midnight on Easter Monday, tested 7760 drivers on the peninsula and 3714 in the wider Frankston area in Southern Metro Division 4. Of these, 36 were detected exceeding the 0.05 per cent limit – or, in the case of P-platers, breaching the mandatory four-year zero-alcohol limit. Acting senior sergeant Peter Martin, of Somerville Highway Patrol, said the figures meant the division had the second-highest number of drink-ordrug driving arrests in the state over the holiday period. All hands on deck: Divisional superintendent Adrian White, left, and regional assistant commissioner Bob Hill, performed In one case, Somerville Highway preliminary breath tests on motorists leaving the Bungower Road exit of Peninsula Link during Operation Nexus.

AMONG those apprehended in Frankston were six drink drivers, three disqualified/suspended drivers and seven unlicensed drivers.

On the Mornington Peninsula, police detected 21drink drivers, nine drug drivers, 11 disqualified/ suspended drivers and 12 unlicensed drivers.

Call to protect seals Continued from Page 1 They said DELWP rangers – “very clearly the authority overseeing seals” - were not usually able to adequately supervise activities around seals and had “actively discouraged” volunteers from helping, possibly because of insurance concerns. Similarly, Mornington Peninsula Shire’s rangers “have no equipment or signage nor any current protocols as to who manages the protection of the seal”. “The shire’s phone system currently redirects calls about resting seals onto local volunteers, who then have no equipment or support. Volunteers have no authority to enforce breaches of seal exclusion zones or uncontrolled dogs harassing seals, unlike DELWP or shire rangers.” Mr Thomson said that on Sunday 11 March a seal came to rest within a dog off-leash beach at Rosebud. It was the day of the Rosebud kite festival and there were hundreds of people on the beach. “Being a Sunday, we called the shire‘s after hours emergency phone line. The operator told us to contact volunteers - who we are. “When we finally spoke to a shire ranger we were told that rangers weren’t authorised to help with seals and that it was in fact Parks Victoria that managed the beach up to the high tide mark. “So we contacted Parks Victoria, who told us that they didn’t deal with seals either and that seals were managed by DELWP, and so we went around in circles, as is the usual case. “In the end we managed to rustle up some tape barriers and stakes and had volunteers supervise the seal until 10 that night, the beach was still packed with tourists and dogs throughout the evening. The shire failed to act and did not offer supervision for the seal, nor did they attempt to close off the beach to off-leash dogs or fine dog owners approaching the seal.” Mr Thomson said neither DELWP nor the shire but had responded despite being sent

details of the incident. The following weekend (Saturday 17 March) the wildlife protection council was called about a seal being harassed by a man at Seaford. “A man, known to police, was photographed trying to place money on the seal’s nose,” Mr Thomson said. “Frankston police eventually arrested the man was for assaulting a [Frankston] council worker who was trying to prevent him approaching the seal. “We reported this matter to DELWP and asked them to … have this man charged with breaching the wildlife regulations, but again we have had no reply.”

Plover catches eye of artist THE endangered hooded plover has appeared larger than life in Frankston. The wall mural was painted by Jimmy Beatie for last month’s The Big Picture Festival of street art. The appearance of the mural coincided with news on the bird’s survival front of 12 hooded plover chicks hatched on Mornington Peninsula beaches making it to the flying stage. Diane Lewis, president of the Friends of the Hooded Plover group, said the mural and fledging of the chicks “is a wonderful tribute to the volunteers and the public who now acknowledge the bird’s existence”. “Beachgoers, whether they are surfers, walkers, hang gliders or families spending a day at the beach have all taken an interest and given the birds room to breed,” Ms Lewis said. “Some beaches, like 16th beach [near Rye], had two chicks fledge from the same clutch. This was in spite of one person picking up one of the chicks and taking it back to her car. “One opportune phone call to a volunteer reassured her that the chick had not been abandoned. The chick was then returned to the beach where it had been hiding. It was seen running around the following day, with no adverse effects.” Ms Lewis said it was more than seven years since that particular beach had seen a chick survive. “Beaches across Rye had a total of five chicks fledge, once again unheard of since we started keeping records,” she said.

NEWS DESK Artists to shine light on mental health AN art competition and exhibition for young people on the Mornington Peninsula is being held to celebrate the inaugural Victorian Youth Week. Southern Peninsula Youth Advisory Group is encouraging artists to participate in the Our Mental Health Matters section under the theme: Light after the dark.

Our Mental Health Matters Exhibition is 6- 8pm, Friday 20 April, at Southern Peninsula Art Centre, Eastbourne Road, Rosebud. Entries will complement an information session by Headspace Frankston. “Our wellbeing is a key theme of the council plan and we’re committed to ensuring our youth feel valued and supported,” the mayor Cr Bryan Payne said. “The theme Our Mental Health Matters was chosen to raise awareness around the prevalence of youth mental health issues and provide our young people a platform to share their stories.” Applications close 5pm, Monday 16 April. Prizes include vouchers to the value of $250 for first prize; $150 for second prize and $100 for third prize. Youth Week 2018 runs from 13-22 April.Details: mpys.com.au/art

PROPOSED changes to the boundaries of Victorian federal electorates almost halve the seat of Flinders held by Liberal Greg Hunt, while the neighbouring seat of Dunkley held by Liberal MP Chris Crewther moves slightly north into parts of Isaacs. The changes – which create a new seat of Monash from the eastern and northern parts of Flinders – are designed to reflect population growth so that each electorate has a similar number of voters and have been made to accomodate a new electorate to be called Fraser in Melbourne’s western suburbs. Mr Hunt’s Flinders electorate could be scaled back to cover only the Mornington Peninsula (excluding Mt Eliza) and French Island. Cut from Flinders are large areas in the cities of Casey and Cardinia and the Shire of Bass Coast, including Phillip Island. Added to Flinders is that part of Baxter north of Baxter-Tooradin Road and from Bentons Road, Mornington to Manmangur Creek (the northern boundary of Mornington Golf Course) and Oakbank Road, Mt Eliza. These areas were formerly within Dunkley. Dunkley stands to gain a section of the seat of Isaacs north to Thompsons Road (Sandhurst), and down Eel Race Road to the bay. Both Mr Hunt and Mr Crewther declined to comment on the proposed changes late last week and referred media inquiries to the Liberal Party’s state director, Nick Demiris, who was not available. The Redistribution Committee for Victoria considered names and boundaries for the 38 Victorian federal electoral divisions. It had the task of rearranging boundaries in the lowgrowth eastern suburbs of Melbourne to “more equitably balance the high-growth areas in the south-east and north-west”, as well as taking high growth areas out of electoral divisions which “exceed the maximum number of electors permitted by the Electoral Act, including the divisions of McEwen and McMillan”. Committee chair and electoral commissioner Tom Rogers said the redistribution was required to enable an increase from 37 to 38 federal electoral divisions.

Electoral ground “Under the proposal the boundaries of all 37 existing Victorian electoral divisions would change, the additional division of Fraser would be created and four divisions would be renamed,” Mr Rogers said. “The high population growth in Victoria, together with the dispersed spread of electors,

has resulted in the redistribution committee proposing significant change to Victoria’s electoral division boundaries.” The proposed new seat of Monash would replace the seat of McMillan and take over the eastern portion of Mr Hunt’s existing electorate.

An independent voice for the community We are the only locally owned and operated community newspaper on the Mornington Peninsula. We are dedicated to the belief that a strong community newspaper is essential to a strong community. We exist to serve residents, community groups and businesses and ask for their support in return.

Peninsula group takes the lead with senior’s rights EFFORTS to shape an “age-friendly” Mornington Peninsula have seen the former chair of the Peninsula Advisory Committee for Elders Jeanette Lane being asked to spread the word to other parts of Victoria. Her success in engaging with older members of the community on the peninsula led to Ms Lane being invited to attend the Central Highlands Elder Abuse Prevention Project launch in Ballarat to speak on the committee’s programs and outreach. Ms Lane presented a 30-minute program with Gary Ferguson from Seniors Rights Victoria to help the central region start its first elder abuse program. PACE was established in May 2006 as part of the shire’s Elder Citizens in the Community Strategy, with the committee representing residents aged over 50 who live on the peninsula, either full or part-time. Ms Lane said elder abuse was an ongoing issue and other areas of Victoria were starting to take action. “They’d never run any elder abuse programs in Ballarat,” she said. “When we run one here on the peninsula there is always another group who wants a presentation somewhere else and now we’ve run programs all over. “We’re being recognised for running more programs and events for elders than anywhere else in Victoria”. The mayor Cr Bryan Payne said the council was always looking for

ways to help our older people remain healthy, active and independent on the peninsula. “PACE is a great committee, and helps council to shape and create inclusive communities for older people,” he said. “There’s a clear interest from the community in helping to address issues for older people on the peninsula – with more than 130 people attending our third Positive Ageing Community Summit last year”. Cr Antonella Celi, chair of the shire’s Positive Ageing Steering Committee, said the committee had “been at the forefront in sharing information and advice on the important issue of

elder abuse. It is an outstanding result to see Jeanette invited to present at a regional level”. Ms Lane is also a member of the state-wide Elder Abuse Advisory Group which recognises PACE as one of its key supporting organisations. Information about the activities of PACE can be heard on air at Mornington Peninsula radio station RPP (98.7 FM) as part of the shire’s Positive Ageing Strategy: A Community for All Ages. It covers issues affecting older people, such as aged services, events, information and infrastructure from time to time on Dennis Gist’s Thursday show at midday.

Craft moves to Hub Have your say WESTERN Port Craft Expo has this year moved into a bigger venue and is offering fresh approaches to traditional crafts. “The craft expo will be at the Hastings Hub on April 14, giving us more room to expand with all stalls under cover – another bonus,” convenor Sandra Beckett said. “Many crafts such as crochet and macramé are being reimagined by younger craftspeople, so we are looking forward to their invigorating contributions.” The expo, held for the past six years at the Hastings Uniting Church, has seen increasing numbers of visitors and exhibitors attending for talks and demonstrations of unusual heritage and indigenous crafts. This year’s expo will also offer free crafts for children. The Hub’s extra space will mean workshops can be held morning and afternoon, including book carving by Patricia Phair; leather making with Jack Miller; and monoprinting using every day materials with Billy Nye. Short try out sessions will feature Saori weaving (free style handweaving) and quilling (paper filigree). Other talks and demonstrations will include English paper piecing, weaving and indigenous crafts by Cassie Leatham. Decorated rocks are expected be popular for those involved with the popular VicRocks program. This was developed by Moongala Community House, Bentleigh East, to engage the community in fun, fitness and creativity by painting rocks and hiding them in parks, playgrounds and public places for others to find. Money raised from the Western Port Craft Expo go to restore and maintain the Uniting Church’s brick chapel on the corner of Marine Parade and Hodgins Road, Hastings. The chapel is 95 years old and believed to be one of the oldest brick buildings in the town. Admission to the expo at Hastings Hub, 1973 Frankston-Flinders Road, Hastings, is $5 adults,

Dog owners cry foul over time limits Keith Platt keith@mpnews.com.au DOG owners who regularly walk their dogs on a 300 metre strip of beach at McCrae are annoyed at restrictions continuing over winter. They say theirs is the only “leashfree” beach on the Mornington Peninsula to face such restrictions. Mornington Peninsula Shire last month voted to make the beach leashfree until 10am and after 3pm daily. In doing so, councillors ignored a recommendation by environment protection manager John Rankine to bring McCrae into line with other beaches which allow dogs to be off-leash at all times outside of the daylight saving period. Cr Antonella Celi told The News that the new hours gave dog walkers an extra three hours and were “a fair compromise for a family-friendly beach”. Opening the beach to being leashfree all day would have been “too much of a change for the community to transition to”, Cr Celi said. Cr Celi said dogs could be taken to the beach on a leash throughout the day. “It’s a happy compromise for dog owners who want to do the right thing.” Bill Chalkley, spokesman for the “McCrae Dog Walking Community”, said the new off-leash times at McCrae were “a unique arrangement – we started off with times that were unique and ended up with times that are unique”. He said Cr Celi’s argument was

On the leash: Members of the “McCrae Dog Walking Community” Andy Smith,Ron Moore,Bill Chalkley, Paula Polson, Bill and Chris Younger are mystified by Mornington Peninsula Shire’s decision to make their off-leash beach hours different to every other beach on the peninsula. Picture: Supplied

“based around emotion and getting the right balance, but that doesn’t apply in winter”. Mr Chalkley cited the predominance of low temperatures and onshore winds as evidence that McCrae was no more “family-friendly” in winter than any other beach. Cr Celi said dog could be walked off-leash any time at nearby Rosebud or Tassells beach at safety Beach. She said Mothers Beach, Mornington, had leash-free restrictions because it too was seen as being “familyfriendly”. Cr Celi said she received many com-

plaints about dogs and their owners needed to realise being able to exercise them off-leash was “not a right but a privilege”. Mr Chalkley councillors may have breached their own code of conduct by maintaining leash-free restrictions at McCrae and ignoring information provided by Mr Rankine. “There was no evidence provided to support the variation proposed and subsequently adopted by a majority of councillors,” Mr Chalkley said, quoting an extract from the councillors’ code of conduct: “Good decisions are informed by evidence, good advice,

contributions from the community, underpinned by integrity and make sense in the long term interests of the community.” Mr Chalkley said councillors ignored a “costly community consultation process” that included an online survey, which “demonstrated dominant support for removal of the McCrae beach restrictions”. “Anecdotally, winter beach activity is largely confined to dog walkers [and] all three Seawinds Ward councillors [Antonella Celi, Simon Brooks and Frank Martin] voted in favour of the alternate proposal completely over-

ruling the interests of the Seawinds community despite extensive and compelling evidence to support the original proposal,” he said. “How then can council demonstrate that the resulting decision is underpinned by integrity, represents good governance and makes sense in the long term interests of the community?” In a prepared news release, Cr Martin said: “We are glad the community has come together to voice their thoughts on this allowing council to find a solution catering for all.”

Police patrol Police patrol

With Stephen Taylor

Hoons’ cars impounded

A MORNINGTON man was charged with reckless conduct endangering life, travelling at a dangerous speed and failing to stop when directed to do so by police after his Holden utility was clocked at 210kph on Peninsula Link, Frankston, 1.30am, Wednesday 28 March. The man, 28, was arrested next day and bailed to appear at Frankston Magistrates’ Court at a later date. His car was impounded. Somerville Highway Patrol crews say they are regularly seizing vehicles for speeding and hooning, especially at night. They said the Peninsula Link control room had alerted them to be on the lookout for a car speeding south at about 150kph and, a short time later, the blue Holden ute roared past Golf Links Road. The patrol attempted to intercept with lights flashing and siren wailing but the car accelerated and police called off the chase due to safety concerns – clocking the ute at 201kph. Police said cars were impounded for a minimum 30 days, with a $1000 release fee. Other penalties may be imposed by a court.

Court over fatal collision A SAFETY Beach woman will appear before the Melbourne Magistrates’ Court in June charged with serious driving offences. The 19-year-old

faced the same court for a committal mention on Friday 23 March. The charges laid by the Major Collision Investigation Unit include culpable driving, dangerous driving causing death, drive in a manner dangerous, careless driving, drive whilst impaired by drug, disobey traffic control signal and possess drug of dependence. They follow a fatal crash at the intersection of Cranbourne Road and Moorooduc Highway on 13 July in which a 16-year-old Mt Eliza girl died.

Locked cars deter thieves LEAVING cars unlocked makes it easy for thieves to steal valuables, such as wallets, purses, phones, laptops or tools, Mornington police say. They offer simple tips to reduce the likelihood of opportunistic thefts: Lock your car at all times – even when parking at home in the driveway or garage, secure your keys and never leave them in your car, park in well-lit and secure areas if possible, and don’t leave valuable items, including tools, in your vehicle where possible. Suspicious behaviour should be reported to police on 000.

Raids target child sex abuse material A 62-YEAR-OLD Capel Sound man was among 20 people arrested late last month as part of a state-wide police operation targeting online child abuse. It is believed the children were all from overseas. Warrants were executed at 20 properties across Melbourne as part of Operation P2P which aimed to identify and apprehend those accessing, downloading and distributing, child abuse material on the internet. The Capel Sound man was later released pending further inquiries. Police also checked to determine whether any children were at risk, or could be victims, of sexual abuse through their association with those arrested or the properties raided during the operation. The 20 warrants were executed over several days in March by the Joint Anti Child Exploitation Team, E-Crime Squad, detectives from Sexual Offence and Child Abuse Investigation Teams, detectives from local crime investigation units and digital forensic analysts from Victoria Police and the Australian Federal Police. The charges included possess child exploitation material, access child exploitation material, transmit child exploitation material, and use a carriage service for child pornography. Items seized from the raided properties included computers, tablets, mobile phones, child sex dolls, illegal fireworks, samurai sword and drugs, including cannabis and GHB (or ice). Penalties for the possession, distribution and access of child abuse are up to 10 years jail. Anyone with information about child exploitation material or related activity can call Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000 or submit a confidential crime report to crimestoppersvic.com.au

Breathing life into emergency care ROSEBUD Soccer Club and Balnarring Tennis Club members are breathing easier after their clubs received defibrillators and training packages from the state government. They are among 301 clubs to receive packages from the Defibrillators for Sporting Clubs and Facilities Program, which has a target for 1000 defibrillators for clubs and facilities state-wide. Bystanders play a critical role in a sudden cardiac arrest as every second counts. The survival rate for a sudden cardiac arrest is usually 2-5 per cent. When a defibrillator is used in the first few minutes, the rate can rise to 70 per cent. Their use for treating cardiac arrest has risen four-fold: from 2.8 per cent in 2006/07 to 11 per cent in 2015/16. The devices will appear on Ambulance Victoria’s database, allowing triple zero operators to direct callers to the scene when emergencies occur.

Golf day for hospice

A CHARITY Golf Day at St Andrews Golf Course on Friday 27 April will raise funds for Peninsula Home Hospice. The hospice each year provides free in-home care to more than 800 peninsula-based patients who are faced with a life-threatening illness, as well as providing support to their families. The mayor Cr Bryan Payne said the service provides “quality of life and honours the hope for comfort, choice, dignity and peace”. Ambrose play will start at 7am with a breakfast roll and coffee before a ‘shotgun’ start at 8am. After their game, golfers will head to the new St Andrews Beach Brewery for a grazingstyle lunch, recognition of sponsors, presentations and a silent auction. Non-golfers wanting to be involved can come for lunch at the brewery which was once one of Australia’s premier horse-training facilities. Entries close Friday 20 April.

Missed the fox but caught a cat Foxes roam our neighbourhood with little in the way of a fox control program. It’s quite disconcerting to find a half chewed possum or bluetongue lizard in the middle of the road knowing it’s been savaged by a fox. We bought a fox trap hoping to trap these destructive creatures, only to find that Mornington Peninsula Shire provides little in the way of captured animal support services. Over the long Labour Day weekend, a cat was caught on Friday night. Saturday morning, we called the number on council’s website to be told that rangers weren’t working over the long weekend, the council shelter wasn’t operating, and we’d have to await a call back. Someone phoned eventually to say that because the cat wasn’t in a council cage, all we could do was to drop it off at any veterinary clinic. The vet clinics were also shut, so the distressed cat stayed in the cage for days. Cats do as much damage as foxes, why anyone lets their cat roam at night is beyond me. On Tuesday, we found an open vet clinic. While there, other people brought in stray dogs. Two of them were large and looked like they could do serious damage. Someone came with a half-starved dog they found near their home. All were told by council to dump the animals at vet clinics. Instead of running a proper stray animal shelter, council leaves it to vets to sort out its problems. The vets receive no fee for this service but have costs in caring for the animals while arranging with council to locate owners. This is an appalling situation, bordering on animal abuse. It’s also opportunistic for council to be abusing privately owned veterinary clinics in this way with zero in the way of remuneration. Christine Fry, Blairgowrie

Out of office Why does Mornington Peninsula Shire Council believe it needs an office in central Melbourne? So staff are getting held up in traffic returning to Mornington? Tough, it happens to everyone and it’s a fact of life (“Shire to open office in Melbourne”, The News, 3/4/18). Why do ratepayers of this shire have pay for a city office just to make their lives a bit easier? If our esteemed CEO believes this is essential then I suggest he pays for it. After all, he is the best paid CEO in the south east. We the ratepayers of this shire should not have to pay. We already have several council offices in the area. Malcolm Boughey, Mornington

Melbourne embassy Not since the last trip to China by councillors have I heard so much bull to justify the opening of a Melbourne “satellite office” by the Mornington Peninsula Shire (“Shire to open office in Melbourne”, The News, 3/4/18). It’s simply for shire staff who live in the suburbs - not the peninsula - so that they don’t have to come to Mornington to do their jobs. Or is it in reality our shire’s embassy in Melbourne? I wonder how council planners in little towns like Mildura, Bendigo, Ballarat and Sale get on? Do they all have a Melbourne office for the same reasons as claimed by the shire? Brian A Mitchelson, Mornington

Office for minority I find it baffling to hear our shire CEO’s explanation for having to open an office in the Melbourne CBD. If, as he reasons, a quarter of peninsula home owners live up there in Melbourne, then I don’t think his argument for moving there is a good one. He seems to indicate that the remaining three quarters of the peninsula population don’t much matter to his team of planners. I would have thought anyone taking a job with our shire’s planning department would have been fully aware of the fact where the job was

and, if not, I feel they were employed without proper diligence. The disenfranchisement of the local population to the advantage of big end developers in town is regrettable. On one hand the shire is telling us that we need to control development on the peninsula and on the other the executive seems to cosy up to developers. Something is not right here. Rupert Steiner, Balnarring

Fond farewell A big thanks for community-inspired and shared wealth of knowledge and insight to all contributors to The News. This truly is a beautiful place to live, or strive to thrive. We live a world away from the big smoke, but with inter-connectedness and sense of belonging within the environment we hope to sustain and maintain our quality of life. In essence, Melbourne is the big brother just up the road, waiting to hear from us. Sometimes, thankfully, it’s a long road. At other times it’s gratifying and reassuring to know we are all connected by our proximity to the wonderful phenomenon we call Port Phillip. In short, thank you one and all for your determined, dedicated and duly deliberated discussions that engender and socially engineer a better becoming. In particular Stuart McCullough and his thoroughly entertaining musings, week in, week out and the history of “100 years ago today”, that we can all benefit and learn from. To the good people of Rye and surrounding neighbourhood: Thank you for your tired tolerance, patience and hospitality towards me and those alike. I’ve truly received a host of magnificent nature, so I’d like to post and propose a toast: May your tomorrows be better than your yesterdays and your joys be greater than you dismays. One and all, I thank you again. You may know me as the feral forager of milk thistle, but I assure you my grumbles are less than my whistle. I’ve frequented Rye and Dromana over the 20 years since arriving here from good old Blighty and haven’t before found a slice of heaven so sweet, nor an orchard so ripe with nectar as these shores. With utmost fondest regards to you and your readers, I bid you a fond farewell, until we meet again at the sure shores of destiny. Happy travels. Darren Goodall, Rye

Shire or the public, stated: “The peninsula has a much loved character and it has to be protected.” A short while back this same man said that the tragic London fire could never happen here. He is now pushing to have all inflammable cladding removed from affected buildings. Surely one would have to question his credibility in a government which itself has a totally ruined reputation for dishonesty. Aussie (Austin) Sadler, Mornington

Pensioners targets James McLoughlin has got it so wrong (“Pensioners pay already” Letters 27/3/18). It has never been Labor’s intention to penalise a pensioner with a modest income. The pensioners, so called, that the Labor party is after are the ones that claim a pension that they are not eligible to receive. These people are robbing the Australian taxpayer blind with the help of creative accountants, socking their money into family trusts and any other loophole they can find to hide it from the tax man. The pensioners that James has mentioned are excluded. It might be prudent at this time to mention Turnbull’s latest proposed cuts to pensioners which are to be a $14 cut to single pensioners and $21 to pensioner couples. It apparently pertains to the power supplement to new pensioners. This is at the same time that he wants to give a $65 billion dolar tax cut to big business, some of which have apparently threatened to leave Australia if they don’t get the tax cut. What say we tell them to sod off and get some big businesses that are interested in the growth of Australia and not the growth of the money in their pockets? John Cain, McCrae

Use super for living I must have been wrong in thinking that super funds were set up to provide for retirement, not to maintain income and wealth. I would be quite happy to be rich enough to not qualify for the

Australian pension by having enough wealth to be excluded. So, as for most of us retirees who do not qualify to be excluded from the paltry pension payments and “entitlements” from the government (which they continue to chip away at) I have little sympathy for those aristocrats who have a lot of dollars in the bank and are excluded from the “feeding trough”. They should dip into the principal and use their super for what it was set up for - to support their retirement, not to continue to maintain wealth. Then, when they deplete this, they can go on the same benefits as the majority of us. Maybe even, as many have to do, decide to pay rates or to buy food. Sorry to hear that Labor is now going to exempt many of them from the handouts for the rich and privileged. Don’t get me wrong, I do not begrudge them for being able to earn enough to put some away, but now this time to use it for which it is set up for: to retire not to continue to build or maintain wealth. I would be quite happy to be rich enough to not be able to “bludger” off the Australian taxpayers. Joe Lenzo, Safety Beach

Historical correction I am writing about the Tyabb air show article (“Flights of delight” The News 20/3/18). I got a copy of this paper while in Hastings from 20 to 25 March, wishing I had been there on 11 March instead, so that I could have been at the air show. The article on the air show states in the third paragraph, that the show “featured planes from WWI, such as Tiger Moths and Spitfires …”. I would just like to point out that the Spitfire was a World War II aircraft - not World War I. I know this is a little “petty”, but when these mistakes happen, the people who don’t know the history, pick up on incorrect history - and it goes from there. I did, however, enjoy the articles in that edition. Keith Asbury, Shepparton

Transport shake-up The last community consultative review of public transport on the Mornington Peninsula was more than a decade ago. Only two of the recommendations were enacted. Successive state governments have ignored our public transport needs. We now have a situation whereby some bus routes are seriously overcrowded during weekday peak hours resulting in passengers stranded at bus stops with a 45-minute wait for the next service, such as the Portsea-Frankston, Route 788. Various schools and retirement villages have no public transport to their facilities. The two age groups are not only reliant upon public transport but also the predominant age groups on the peninsula. Accessing health and medical services, whether community based or in public hospitals, is also a challenge. We have both a state budget (May) and a state election (November) this year. It’s time public transport needs were addressed in the state seats of Hastings, Mornington and Nepean. Jane Clarke. Rosebud

100 YEARS AGO THIS WEEK...

Flinders officer survives close call Compiled by Brodie Cowburn LEAVING Dandenong on Friday afternoon for Wonthaggi, Lieutenant M. H. Bolton, recruiting officer for Flinders, with Sergeants E. J. Coyle and R. Middleton had a most exciting experience in their new Ford recruiting car. After leaving Lang Lang the officers struck very bad roads, and decided to leave the main road and take a side track. It was dark and after looking over the road in daylight, it was seen that the car was but a few feet from a death trap in three very bad places. At one point the car had been was only a few inches from a steep cliff overlapping the sea. Sergeant Coyle, who was at the wheel, thinking danger was ahead stopped the car just in time to save it from dashing over the cliffs, which would have been certain death. A cheer went up when the officers arrived at Wonthaggi, where they will hold a recruiting meeting. As a result of their visit 11 recruits were obtained. *** IT was announced by the Speaker in the House of Representatives on Wednesday that the writ for the Flinders by-election, necessitated by the retirement of Sir William Irvine, will be issued on Friday. Nominations will close on Monday, 29th April, and polling day is fixed for Saturday, 11th May. The writ is returnable on or before 25th May. It is officially stated on behalf of a the National Federation that there will be no lack of candidates for the

vacant seat in the Flinders electorate. As far as can be gathered, from 16 to 18 candidates have intimated their intention of offering their services in the Nationalist interests. Today the executive of the United National Federation will meet, when the steps to be taken to select a candidate from the number offering will be considered. *** THE writ for the Election of a member of the House of Represented for the Division of Flinders, to fill the vacancy caused by the resignation of Sir William Irvine, will be issued at an early date. Persons who are not already enrolled are reminded that all claims for enrolment must reach the Commonwealth Electoral Registrar for the Subdivision in which they live not later than six o’clock on this date of the issue of the Writ. Claims for enrolment received after that date and hour will not be dealt with until after the Election has taken place. *** A PETITION has been presented to His Excellency the Governor in Council, asking that the shire of Frankston and Hastings be resubdivided and that the North riding be made into two ridings. The petitioners state that the valuation of the North riding is £21,300 and returns 3 councillors, whilst the combined valuation of the centre and east ridings amounts to £26,719, and returns six councillors. *** A NUMBER of ratepayers of the

Lyndhurst parish of the Cranbourne shire have petitioned His Excellency the Governor in Council to attach part of the said shire to the shire of Frankston and Hastings. The petitioners state that they have no interests in the Cranbourne shire, their principle business centres being Frankston, Seaford and Carrum. That to reach these centres they have to travel over roads within the shire of Frankston and Hastings. That the roads to these centres are very bad, and under present circumstances they have no rights enabling them to ask for works to be done, their rates going in one direction and their traffic in another. *** READERS will notice in our advertising columns the sports programme for Saturday afternoon, April 20th in the Frankston Park. Admission 1s, children half price. Proceeds will be devoted to the Repatriation Fund. The programme embraces events for young and old, for soldiers and for horsemen. A novel event will be a race for draught horses, to be ridden without whips or spurs. Major Conder and Messrs Oates, Jolly and Young met last week end and drew up the programme which should create much pleasure and mirth for patrons. *** THE proposal to expend £168,845 on the erection of quarters and workshops at Flinders naval base for the accommodation of the district naval personnel was the subject of a report submitted to Parliament on Wednes-

day by the Federal Public Works Committee. After taking an immense amount of evidence the committee recommended that the machine and fitting shop and the temporary hospital should be proceeded with at once, and that tenders be called for the erection of the married officers’ quarters, the Department of Works to submit a tender for the carrying out of the work by day labor. *** V. WILLIAMS, of Ballam Park. A meeting of those interested in the formation of a gymnasium club at Frankston will be held at Mr. Brashers residence, Davey Street, Frankston, this (Saturday) evening at 7.30 p.m. Several local gentlemen are actively interesting themselves in the proposal and it is hoped in the near future that a club will be formed, members of which will be able to in indulge in boxing, wrestling etc., during the winter evenings. *** REV E. Tonkin begins his third year as superintendent of the Frankston Methodist Circuit on Sunday next. He will conduct both the morning and evening services in the local Church. The evening service, until further notice, begins at 7pm. *** WITH a view of bringing the local cheque for the returned soldiers’ Repatriation Fund up to £100 a high class concert, will be held in the Mechanics’ Hall, Frankston at 8 p.m. on Saturday evening, April 20th. We are informed that the forthcom-

ing programme will equal, if it does not excel, the previous concert, and a great musical treat is promised. *** THE proceeds of the concert held at Franktson on Easter saturday night, under the auspices of the local branch of the Red Cross in aid of the Soldiers Repatriation fund, amounted to £19 6s 3d, and a further sum of £5 5s was secured for the same object by the raffle of a rug which was won by Mr C. G. V. Williams, of Ballam Park. *** CONSTABLE Farley, who was stationed at Frankston during the summer months, returned to Melbourne on Thursday. During his stay here Constable Farley made many friends and proved himself a capable and efficient officer. *** IN our report of an entertainment held at Somerville on Thursday evening, March 28th, the name of Miss Bessie Grant, who gave a dainty impersonation of Cecile, sister of Lydia, in the farce entitled “My turn next” was inadvertently omitted. *** IMPOUNDED at Frankston, 1 Bay Gelding, about 15 hands, four black points, three shoes off, near hind shoe on, about 9 years, branded like V on near shoulder.

WHAT’S NEW...

Mirusia and Paul Potts head to Frankston CELEBRATED as the ‘Angel of Australia’ by André Rieu, the Australian-Dutch soprano Mirusia is in full swing forging her own career as a solo artist. Her recent album ‘From the Heart’ and tour of the same name has received outstanding reviews and has touched the hearts of many audiences. Her performances have been declared; “heart-warming, personal and they leave you no choice but to love Mirusia.” And now Mirusia will have the amazing tenor Paul Potts as her very special guest. It will be ten years since Paul has performed in Australia Mirusia studied classical voice at the Queensland Conservatorium in Australia and at the age of 21 was announced as the youngest ever recipient of the prestigious Dame Joan Sutherland Opera Award. After graduation, her career blossomed when she toured the world for 10 years as a featured soloist with the Johann Strauss Orchestra. This much loved orchestra is based in Maastricht, Netherlands and is led by the acclaimed violinist, André Rieu. The stadium-size concerts have forwarded Mirusia a wonderful opportunity of singing before country leaders, royalty and millions of fans and all nationalities have marvelled at the clarity, dexterity and the exquisite sound of her voice. Her solo career has flourished with many extensive and successful tours of Australia and internationally and her solo albums always place highly on the Australian Aria Album and DVD chart rankings. In 2016 the album and DVD “This Time Tomorrow” both ranked in the Top 10 for many weeks, with the CD reaching the number one position for best-selling classical crossover album and DVD reaching #1 on the Australian Music DVD Charts. Her new album “From The Heart” is already selling exceptionally well in Europe and has recently been released in Australia. Tenor Paul Potts won not only the hearts of the nation when he won Britain’s Got Talent in 2007 – but allowed him to live his dream of performing around the world to adoring fans. Socially awkward, bullied and taunted at school, singing in his local church choir proved to be a

sanctuary from the playground abuse. This life-changing event led him to release his first album “One Chance” that year and it topped the charts in 13 countries. He has appeared on Oprah (twice), brought Times Square to a standstill, completed world tours and became a household name in cities from Seoul to New York and Sydney to Hamburg. His story has since inspired the Hollywood produced movie “One Chance” starring James Corden playing the lead role and Paul wrote an accompanying autobiography. Five solo albums have followed as well as a Greatest Hits. Paul’s latest album “On Stage” released last year on the 10th anniversary of his historic win, is a collection of songs that have either inspired or been performed by Paul in leading roles from Broadway to the West End. Songs include Impossible Dream (Man From La Mancha) Till I Hear You Sing (Love Never Dies) Bring Him Home (Les Miserables) and a vulnerable rendition of Send In The Clowns *A Little Night Music). Paul has performed nearly 900 times across 44 countries, and now returns to Australia to perform with MIRUSIA in what will be a magical night of music. Mirusia and Paul Potts will be performing at Frankston Arts Centre on Saturday May 5 at 8pm. Tickets from www.thefac.com.au

THE MEANING OF EXISTENCE... AND OTHER SHORT STORIES

Daylight Saving Myself from Insanity By Stuart McCullough WHAT a relief! I’m so glad it’s behind us, at least for a while. So unpleasant. So unnecessary. So evil. I realize I’m putting it quite highly; so high, in fact, that you’d need the little step ladder to get it down again. But I can only say that I’m happy to see the back of it and that my emotions on this important topic are entirely genuine. Only now can I breathe a sigh of relief as things go back to normal. I speak, of course, of the end of daylight savings. In this crazy, mixed up world, there’s any number of things I’d be happy to never see again. Like cricket. Or Facebook, especially since it now turns out that it’s responsible for ruining the entire world, a fact that renders the ‘like’ button completely redundant as well as deeply ironic. But daylight savings is despicable because it steals the one thing I can never get enough of – sleep. Just like Facebook steals your dreams, daylight savings robs you of an hour overnight so that you wake up feeling tired and cranky. It’s unforgivable. The whole thing’s a shock to the system. That first week of daylight savings is torture, pure and simple. The entire population is left completely stupefied with fatigue as we stumble around, pretending that nothing’s wrong. Ideally, they’d phase it in fifteen minutes at a time over a month rather than subjecting us to the whole bucket-load of misfortune at once. Or give us a day off to adjust. It’s like a collective form of jetlag. There’s simply no need for it. It’s not just the fact of daylight

savings that’s troublesome. It outstays its welcome. In the same way David Niven described the Oscars as two hours of sparkling entertainment squeezed into four hours, daylight savings refuses to quit whilst it’s ahead. Granted, there are parts of the summer where supplies of sunlight are abundant and no-one really no-

tices daylight savings because there’s about sixteen hours of light. But, towards the end, you’re begging for it to finish as you drive to work and it’s as dark as the dead of winter. Daylight savings used to be shorter. When I was a kid, daylight savings lasted about four months. As time has gone on, it’s become emboldened

and started to spread. Doubtless it intends to take over the entire year and there’ll be no room left for regular time at all. This can’t be allowed to happen. For starters, adopting permanent daylight savings will drive an eternal wedge between ourselves and Queensland, who have remained rightly suspicious of the scheme in its entirety. They used to say Queensland resisted daylight savings for fear that it would fade the curtains. And confuse the cows. But this begs the question: what if Queensland is right? What if by indulging daylight savings for ever-longer periods of time we are doing untold damage to the drapes? You can’t tell me that an extra hour of sunshine isn’t a contributing factor to climate change. It simply stands to reason. And as for cows, we could do worse than to take heed of the legitimate concerns of our bovine friends. They may well know something we don’t. Come to think of it, I feel that there’s a direct connection between daylight savings and the inexorable rise of almond milk. Good grief. Previously, I’ve threatened to boycott. One of my brothers used to maintain both standard and summer times concurrently throughout the year, going so far as to wear two wristwatches at all times. As a big fan of Flavour Flav of Public Enemy, my brother was acutely aware of always knowing what time it was. That said, I doubt Flavour Flav could get away with wearing two clocks around his neck the whole year round. It would be uncomfortable, I think. He’d have to move to Queensland, just to be on

the safe side. Perhaps I’m reacting to being told what to do. Ideally, daylight savings wouldn’t be foisted on us and, instead, be a matter of personal choice. In much the same way as ‘catch up’ television lets you choose when you want to consume a particular television program, we should be able to do everything when and how we want. There would be advantages. ‘Peak hour’ would be a thing of the past. Granted, calendars would become redundant and meeting anyone would be more a matter of chance than design, but I think the benefits could well outweigh the negatives. The only way to know for sure is to give it a try. Don’t get me wrong: I love it when daylight savings ends. In fact, the end of daylight savings is the most exciting night of the year. The gift of an additional hour overnight is nothing short of a miracle. It should happen every weekend. I don’t care if, before long, we’re going to work in the middle of the night and sleeping through daylight; the gift of that additional hour each week will have untold productivity benefits. But if that’s impossible, then I say we should abolish daylight savings. The fight back starts here. By my calculations, we’ve got just six months to get the next round of daylight savings called off completely. It’s a daunting task, but I’ve got plenty of energy. Especially since I had that extra hour of sleep. So long daylight savings. And good riddance. stuart@stuartmccullough.com

Sharks clear murky waters DIVISION ONE

By Toe Punt SORRENTO took just eight days to turn an embarrassing defeat into something a little more positive on Saturday, after beating Mt Eliza by one kick in MPNFL Division One football. Good Friday would have been a game that the Sharks quickly wished to put behind them, given the game was billed as the biggest local clash in two decades. In good news for footy, the Sharks were able to do that, leading at every change and bringing home the four points. Chris Dawes was hooked last week for missing goals that perhaps he otherwise would have kicked but he did get his hands on the pill enough to hit the post four times. On Saturday he booted four goals and paved the way for Sorrento to win the match. Ryan Williams was dominant in the ruck, Tom Langford played his best game for the club and Zac Byrnes booted two goals in a lively performance from the middle. Jordan Moncrieff was solid in attack for Mt Eliza, booting four goals while Ben Landry and Jordan Capkin were the best for the Redlegs. Redlegs coach Troy Shannon has made it clear in 2018 that it will be a youth first policy at his football club.

Frankston Bombers has had a wonderful initiation into the new MPNFL Division One competition. In round one, it went up against a traditional Division One club in Mt Eliza losing by just two points. On Saturday in round two, it came up against Mornington, winning by an impressive 17 points. Suffice to say that the Bombers have stepped up to the higher competition and rightly have dibs on a top five position. Its opponent on the other hand, in Mornington, has a little bit of work to do given it only beat Rosebud by less than two goals and lost this week to the Bombers, both “Division Two” teams. The Bombers booted six goals to Mornington’s two in the final quarter to win 16.15 (111) to 14.10 (94). On Saturday Jarrod Grant booted three for the Bombers while Joshua Chapman and Corey Micari were outstanding. It was hard to go past Broden Bird as the best player on the ground after booting five goals for the Doggies. While Tom Hobbs and Kalen Bird were also first class for the Doggies. A four-goal head start has cost Rosebud in its match against Bonbeach going down by 23 points, 7.15 (57) to 12.8 (80). Despite playing on their home deck the Buds allowed Bonbeach to boot four unanswered goals in the open-

ing quarter before working their way back into the contest to trail by just eight points at half-time. Trent Dennis-Lane was the difference between the side with seven goals, while Jackson Casey and Gary Carpenter were also instrumental in the win for the Sharks. For the Buds, Sean and Keegan Downie along with Josh Harris and Greg Bentley were outstanding. Frankston YCW remains undefeated after an epic struggle against Seaford, winning by just two goals, 13.14 (92) to 12.8 (80). This game once again highlighted what a tight competition Division One is going to be in 2018. YCW coach Wayne Capp would have been proud of the fact that it was some of his younger players who lead from the front, including Lachlan Street, Michael Debenham, Josh Butland with four goals and Jake Lovett. Seaford isn’t that far away and just needs to find consistency in a tight competition. In the final game on Sunday at Regents Park, Edithvale-Aspendale kicked inaccurately but still got away with a ten-point victory over Pines. The Eagles booted 12.20 (92) to 11.16 (82), a good effort from the Pythons considering the players still out of the team.agged four and three respectively .

Tigers tough early DIVISION TWO

By Toe Punt DROMANA overcame a slow start in MPNFL Division Two against Somerville on Saturday, winning by more than eight goals. The Tigers trailed by 19 points at quarter time, however they booted 15 goals to four after the first change to win 16.15 (111) to 8.6 (54). The Tigers boasted 11 goal kickers, Ethan Johnstone the best of them with three majors while former Rye coach Ben Holmes once again proved what a bonus he is with two goals. Andrew Howison was once again superb for the visitors, while Billy Quigley and Shaun Clarke were at the top of their game. Somerville struggled, restricted to just six scoring shots to twenty-eight after quarter time. Ryan Gillis was best in attack with three goals while Luke Rowe and Tim McGenniss along with Justin Allsopp worked tirelessly. Karingal and Langwarrin may have gone face to face in a new division on Saturday, but the result was always going to be similar – an epic tussle. The lead swung a number of times between the Bulls and the Kangas, but it was always unthinkable for Karingal lose after the unveiling of their new state of the art pavilion. Both clubs wore black armbands in the honour of Luke Duhig, who represented both clubs. The game was played in the spirit in which Luke approached his football, hard and tough. Kangas led by a point at quarter time but were never able to get in front at any change, losing 10.14 (74) to 9.11 (65). The evergreen Michael Burke was the best player on the field heavily supported by new Karingal teammate Steve McInnes. Blake Peach and Shane Paterson were the best of the Kangaroos. Chelsea enjoyed victory number one in the new look competition with a 11.13 (79) to 11.6 (72) win over Red Hill.

Mornington News

The Seagulls trailed by four points at half-time but booted six goals six to five goals one after the major change to win by seven points. Curtis Bywater kicked off 2018 the same way he finished off 2017, booting four goals. While Simon Mitchelhill and Jason Clarke were outstanding. Todd Gardiner was allowed too much freedom through the middle of the field by the Hillmen. The Hillmen once again lost a game they arguably should have won. Chelsea are expected to be a big improver this year, so it proves that the Hillmen aren’t too far off the pace. Matt Hyden, Jonah Siversen and Dylan Hoare were the best of the Hillmen. Rye was tipped to be a massive improver in 2018. What wasn’t expected was for Tyabb to improve at similar levels. The scoreboard looked as expected at half-time on Saturday, Rye leading 6.6 (42) to Tyabb 1.2 (8). By the end of the match, the scoreboard read Rye 11.14 (80) to Tyabb 10.9 (69). Spencer McCartney and Jake Anderson with four goals were standouts for the Yabbies. Key recruit Tyrren Head and Jai Lloyd were exceptional for Rye. Devon Meadows got their season away to a flyer smashing Pearcedale by nine goals, 17.12 (114) to 8.13 (61). It was sensational to see Troy Aust back in the Devon Meadows line up booting five goals while a number of other recruits, including Joel Hillis and Liam Drew, provided plenty of excitement for the Panther’s crowd. Other than a tight first quarter, the young Pearcedale side was never competitive. It may be another long year. It was a bittersweet win for Hastings on Saturday against Crib Point, winning by 111 points, but possibly losing gun recruit Matt Boland to a seasonending knee injury. If there was positive news it was Luke Hewitt booting eight goals after coming back from a knee injury.

Dolphins back

FRANKSTON Dolphins returned to the VFL on Saturday after a season’s suspension when the club went into voluntary administration. The young team went down 6.5 (41) to 21.17 (143) to Essendon but are sure to have a lot of support this year. Picture: Gary Sissons

Thompson triple opens Strikers’ account SOCCER

By Craig MacKenzie A FIRST-HALF hat-trick from Ryan Thompson spearheaded Peninsula Strikers’ 4-0 away win over Old Scotch last weekend. The English import became the 22nd player to get a hat-trick for the local side and former Everton striker Femi Orenuga completed the rout in the second half when he ran onto Stefan Karac’s pass and rounded the Old Scotch keeper before stroking the ball into an unguarded goal. Strikers had lost the opening league fixture after a tumultuous preseason and the victory kick-starts its promotion campaign under new head coach Jamie Paterson. The Centenary Park outfit was the only local State League club to win last weekend as a recurring theme of played two lost two emerged. That is the reality that Mornington, Skye United, Seaford United and Baxter must confront as they strive to win their first points of the season. Mornington went down 2-0 away to Beaumaris on Saturday in their State 1 South-East fixture. Mornington dominated the first half but paid dearly for its profligacy in front of goal. Early in the second half, it blew another good chance to open the scoring before Zach Lemke put Beaumaris ahead in the 52nd minute. Eight minutes later Mornington defender Josh Valadon was red carded. “We seemed to lose our confidence when we went down to 10 men and we were terrible after that,” Mornington gaffer Adam Jamieson said. Toby Nowell put the home side further ahead in the 74th minute. Mornington winger Keegan Ziada came off the bench for the last 20 minutes and is pushing for a place in the starting line-up to face Richmond at Dallas Brooks Park on Saturday while Charlie Parker looms as an obvious replacement for Valadon and Wayne Gordon returns from suspension. The club is hopeful that Sammy Orritt can recover from injury in time to face Richmond. Meanwhile, a first-half strike from Boroondara-Carey’s Abboud Dib was enough to send Skye United to a second successive defeat on Saturday and things won’t get any easier for Billy Armour’s men as they square up to State 3 South-East leader South Yarra at Fawkner Park next weekend.

Harry McCartney reports that Seaford United lost 2-0 away to Collingwood in their State 3 South-East contest on Friday night but was much more competitive compared to its insipid round one display. In the 14th minute, Ugar Tumkaya broke a dubious offside line and rounded advancing Seaford keeper Patrick Bretherton before slotting home the opener as Seaford defenders argued with the assistant referee. Young Conor Mcfall finally won his first senior start of the league season and his hard running complemented the guile of Dylan Waugh and Matt Morris-Thomas. Seaford hit the bar in the second half in what became a spiteful game with both sides lucky to finish with a full complement of players.

In the 88th minute with Seaford pushing hard for an equaliser, Collingwood broke quickly and Kenzo Noritomi sealed the win with a thundering low strike that gave Bretherton no chance. Baxter went down 3-1 to visitor Dandenong South in Saturday’s State 4 South clash at Baxter Park. Fitim Ibraimi’s through ball in the 2nd minute sent Malik Sulemani clear and he lobbed Baxter keeper James Foster to open the scoring. Six minutes later Ibraimi was on the end of a cross from the right to slot home easily from close range and make it 2-0. Baxter should have scored in the 18th minute when Dan Disseldorp put Ben Meiklem through but Meiklem scuffed his shot sending the ball wide.

In the 42nd minute, Disseldorp won the ball on the touchline and his audacious attempt to lob the Dandy keeper from 35 metres struck the bar. Big Disseldorp made amends early in the second half with a looping header following a Matt Morgan free kick and in the 51st minute Baxter fans were up in arms after claims of handball inside the area were ignored by the referee. They were further incensed when a perfectly timed tackle from Andy Bayliss-White late in the contest saw the referee point to the penalty spot. Lindurim Tairi’s attempted conversion was superbly saved by Foster but Tairi pounced on the rebound to round off the scoreline. Frankston Pines went down 1-0 to title contender Mazenod at Monterey Reserve on Saturday and it took a stunning solo effort from Jack Haggerty in the 83rd minute to decide this State 2 South-East clash. Haggerty weaved his way past a series of ill-timed lunges as he motored into the area on the left before his low strike from a tight angle beat Pines keeper Jarrod Nardino. Mazenod bossed the contest for most of the first half with a James Neighbour header in the 32nd minute striking the bar before being cleared. Pines caused Mazenod a few anxious moments in the second half and substitute Ioasa Saemo blew a great chance to break the deadlock in the 75th minute after a great run down the right from CJ Hodgson but Saemo’s shot was blocked by the foot of former Pines custodian Kris McEvoy. That was to prove Pines’ best chance of getting something out of a fiercely contested affair against a quality opponent. NPLW outfit Southern United put on one of its best performances of the season going down 4-0 to Heidelberg United away from home on Saturday. The fixture was supposed to be played on Sunday as a home game for Southern but an objection by Heidelberg on religious grounds (Greek Orthodox Easter) meant FFV only switched the venue and date last Wednesday. The late reschedule meant five players in Southern’s starting line-up were unavailable due to work commitments. Southern’s under-12s thrashed Heidelberg 7-1 with Kayla McLeod (3), Emilia Ingles (2), Jasmine Smith and Rhiannon Kelleher scoring for

Southern, the under-14s won 3-1 with goals from Candy Kilderry (2) and Alessandra Davis, the under-16s lost 3-2 with Jasmine Ristevski and Haylea Porter scoring for Southern while the under-19s lost 2-1 with Maylinda Emini scoring for Southern. Next Saturday’s NPLW clash between Geelong Galaxy United and visitor Southern United will have an added edge given that both clubs have been drawn against each other in this week’s Team App Cup and are in dispute about both the venue and kick-off time. Southern is now likely to forfeit the Cup match. In NPL2 news Langwarrin turned in a superb performance on Sunday away to Nunawading City coming from 2-0 down to record a memorable 4-3 win. Former NSL and A-League star Massimo Murdocca ran the show for Nunawading in the first half but an incident-packed second period involved six goals with both sides being reduced to 10 men. Substitute Sam Klepac opened Langy’s account in the 57th minute with Viktor Medini (67th) and Liam Baxter (penalty 72nd) also getting on the scoresheet. Veteran Langy keeper Robbie Acs was sent off late in the match with scores tied at 3-3 and Luke Burgess, who is having an outstanding season, grabbed the winner for the visitors in the 92nd minute. FFV’s competitions department is having a bad run at the minute and has been unable to provide details of next weekend’s big local derby between Strikers and Pines listed as a home game for Strikers whose pitch at Centenary Park remains unplayable. FFV also was unable to provide a venue for Saturday’s clash between Dandenong Warriors and Baxter. Here are next weekend’s games: SATURDAY 3pm: Geelong Galaxy Utd v Southern Utd (Banyul Warri Reserve), Mornington v Richmond (Dallas Brooks Park), Peninsula Strikers v Frankston Pines (venue unknown), Seaford Utd v Bayside Argonauts (North Seaford Reserve), South Yarra v Skye Utd (Fawkner Park), Dandenong Warriors v Baxter (venue unknown), Somerville Eagles v Aspendale (Tyabb Central Recreation Reserve). SUNDAY 3pm: St Albans Saints v Langwarrin (Churchill Reserve).

International tennis hits the courts By Ben Triandafillou TENNIS players from across the world made their way to the Mornington Tennis Centre on Monday 19 March for the annual Mornington Peninsula Tennis International. The players which included Men’s Australian Open doubles semi-finalist, Marc Polmans, competed for a total of $50,000 in prize money which was spread over two tournaments. Mornington Elite Tennis Academy director Kate Antosik said the club really embraced the international tournament. “It’s a showcase tournament for our juniors to see the standard of play that they can aspire to get to,” she said. “There is only 10 of these international tournaments played in Australia each year so it’s great to have the opportunity to have one down here on the Peninsula.” Junior tennis players from the Mornington Peninsula got the chance to join in on the action as ball kids for the tournaments. “It was a great opportunity for some of the juniors to get bought into that environment and enjoy a completely different experience,” Antosik said. “They got to hold some of the player’s towels which they were getting really excited about and it was great for them to try something that they aren’t as open to.” The opening tournament which concluded on Sunday 25 March saw the top seed Marc Polmans (world ranking of 216) defeat Sydney tennis player Max Purcell in the singles before Purcell turned the tables on Polmans and took out the second tournament, the following week. Purcell also finished runners-up in the doubles in the opening week with partner Tom Evans (AUS) having been defeated by Matthew Romios (AUS) and Yu Hsiou Hsu (TPE). Adam Taylor (AUS) and Jason Taylor (AUS) were the doubles champions in the second week defeating Michael Look (AUS) and Blake Ellis (AUS). Tennis lessons continued during the tournaments play allowing the juniors to feel a part of the action with an Easter egg hunt also taking place on Thursday 29 March.

The Raiders held their tug-of-war title for the fifth consecutive year and

are hoping to have another successful season in the master’s league. “Our Supers side (over-35s) made it into the semi’s last year as did the reserves, so it was a successful year for all,” Dillon said. “We’ve got a lot of exciting young blokes joining this year so hopefully we can go deep into the finals again this season.” Peninsula Raiders played their season openers on Sunday 8 April against Mordialloc at Alexandra Park, Mornington.

THE Peninsula Sharks have officially become affiliated with Gridiron Victoria after a year and a half of pushing for a gridiron team on the Mornington Peninsula. The Sharks were awarded their chance to join the league on Wednesday 21 March and are set to take up the opportunity with their Men’s senior side when the season kicks off in June. Peninsula Sharks president Garry Smith said the club was ecstatic when they heard the news and are excited to get underway. “I have always been upCrunch time: Peninsula Sharks Gridiron player front with everyone at the Andy Sang prepares for the clubs first season in the club and everyone knew Victorian league.
