Road ‘silt’ has its detractors, and supporters BALCOMBE Estuary forms a scenic gateway to the shopping centre at Mt Martha. A boardwalk follows the broad expanse of water through its tree-lined banks towards The Briars historic property. A haven for many types of birds and small animals, the creek reserve is an area that benefits from the care and attention it receives from the volunteer members of BERG Mt Martha (Balcombe Estuary Reserves Group). High tide in the estuary provides a happy hunting ground for a diving bird, left, and low tide reveals a handy spot to dry its wings. While the tidal difference has benefits for some, BERG - along with Mornington Peninsula Shire - believes the estuary’s days are numbered because of silt from unmade roads. However, residents living on those unsealed roads say they enjoy the non-urban charm of living on a dirt road. “Estuary threatened by unmade roads” Page 5 Picture: Gary Sissons

Division over cliffside clearing Stephen Taylor steve@mpnews.com.au THE owner of a new home being built on a Mornington clifftop has received council permission to clear vegetation down to Mills beach for an inclinator. Mornington Peninsula Shire’s executive manager planning services David Bergin said the council had approved the permit in conjunction with the dwelling approval on the land at 1-3 Kalimna Drive. “As a part of this approval the landowner sought to construct an inclinator, to provide access to the beach,” he

said. “Council have been reviewing the careful construction of the inclinator. “The owner of the land has taken great steps to ensure that there was no potential damage to Aboriginal heritage and is required to undertake extensive local indigenous re-planting around the inclinator.” A shire officer said the cleared land was owned by the property owner and was not Crown land. Members of Mornington Environment Association have described the cliff-side clearing as “rape and pillage” of the landscape. “I do not have a copy of the cultural

heritage map that shows the eastern end of Mills Beach … but I’m sure this vegetation would come under part of this area which is known for middens from history already collected,” president Jill McIvor said. The association has collected photographs from the first stage of the building process until recently. “Our maps clearly show a path to the west of the site that already runs through the vegetation and has probably been there for 100 years or more,” Ms McIvor said. “Could someone please have a look at the map of this area and advise me about cultural significance and how we

can stop this rape and pillage of landscape?” Mt Eliza kayaker Bill Robinson, who spotted the vegetation removal from the water, said he had a “gut feeling this is not right”. “When you consider the Solomon Lew pool saga of a few years ago on the same stretch of coastline I can see some similarities. (“Lew pool demolition”, The News, 16/10/12). “It is a beautiful and fragile cliff – one of the gems of Mornington – so it seems strange that someone is able to clear it. It would only take a heavy rain and the whole gully would be awash.”

New rules winning ‘party house’ wars tions were introduced in April. This confirmed his view that the tougher bylaws – the first of their kind in Victoria – were justified. The main feature is a registration system that identifies owners of properties, or their agents, who must respond to complaints by neighbours within two hours. A code of conduct signed by landlords gives the shire control over rowdy drinking sessions, abusive guests, thumping music late into the night, car parking congestion and inadequate rubbish disposal. Other rules include banning guests from using swimming pools, spas, outdoor decking and balconies from 10pm to 8am, and not allowing visitors between those times. The shire may cancel a property’s registration after it receives three or more “substantiated” complaints about tenants’ activities from nearby residents over 12 months, or it receives a substantiated complaint “of such severity that immediate cancellation is warranted”. Further fines can be issued for each day offences continue after a court has found an offence has been committed. Owners’ hip pockets could be hit with up to $3100 in fines for breaches. Cr Payne said the tougher rules should be the responsibility of the state government. “That’s the reason we had to bring them in,” he said. “We were powerless … we’d be getting complaints and not be able to do anything about them.”

Stephen Taylor steve@mpnews.com.au A SPATE of wild parties in Melbourne suburbs has shone highlighted the shotcomings of short-term “party” house rentals – an issue once rampant on the Mornington Peninsula. In Carnegie last month a $1 million house was overrun and trashed by youths and, on 1 July, in another party gone-wrong, the walls and windows of a $3.5 million Hawthorn East house were smashed. These incidents followed damage estimated in the hundreds of thousands of dollars to so-called party houses in Footscray, North Melbourne, Malvern East, Werribee and Altona. Houses were overrun, windows and doors kicked in and neighbours left fuming. Their sense of impotence was compounded when police, at one house, refused to enter a property being vandalised over safety concerns and leasing anomalies. In the recent disasters, young women reportedly used false names and documents to rent Air BnB properties online and, to allay owners’ concerns, claimed to be part of family groups with young children needing cots. Mornington Peninsula mayor Cr Bryan Payne said shire local laws officers had not received any complaints about party houses this term break – the first school holidays since the Short Stay Rental Accommodation regula-

Estuary threatened by unmade roads Keith Platt keith@mpnews.com.au

Feeding time: While low tide and exposed silt provide a food source for many birds in the Balcombe Estuary, the silt build-up is also causing concern to environmentalists. Picture: Gary Sissons

REHAU Heritage Double Hung Windows Now Available

RESIDENTS will be asked to consider the environmental effects on Balcombe Creek of their continuing opposition to having their roads sealed. Unmade roads are being blamed for the gradual silting of the creek’s estuary and Mornington Peninsula Shire has set aside $150,000 to help “save” the estuary. “The rate of sediment flowing into the estuary is the greatest threat facing the waterway. Without solving this, the estuary will be completely silted up within our grandchildren’s lifetime,” BERG MM president Graham Hubbard said. “For years we have been having talks and meetings with the shire and Melbourne Water about the sediment problem which is basically caused by unmade roads. It’s one thing to recognise a problem – it’s another to do something about it. “Mornington Peninsula Shire recognises the threat and should be congratulated for committing a slice of the budget to solving this significant environmental problem that’s not going to go away. It will only get more expensive if not tackled now.” In a letter to Mr Hubbard, the shire’s financial controller Bulent Oz said that in 2018-19 the shire would spend $150,000 on “further sediment reduction investigations and delivery of viable priority actions”. The shire will investigate infrastructure options for sediment reduction for Seppelt Avenue and in

the master plan being developed for Ferrero Reserve. This includes the recommended option of sealing the car park. Further investigation of sediment reduction at the Henley Street gross pollutant trap, which is the responsibility of Melbourne Water, will be carried out. Mr Oz said a special charge scheme for road construction of Augusta Street was being considered and would incorporate the environmental impact on the estuary. Mr Oz said owners’ information nights had been undertaken with residents in and around Augusta Street and the next stage was to interview them “to address the shift in the environmental impact on Balcombe Estuary, if the road is deemed suitable for being sealed”. Referring to flows from Kia Ora Avenue and Walpole Street, Mr Oz said an earlier design of flows from this area would be revisited and “alternate funding sources be considered to make this special funding scheme more viable”. However, Augusta Street residents have already told the shire they are opposed to having their road sealed, even though the shire would pay about $1 million of the $3 million cost (“Road making plan seals outrage” The News 23/10/17). The average cost to property owners is $26,000 in the scheme to seal Augusta and the adjacent Mark, Mathew and Gregory streets. The plan being opposed by the property owners also includes a footpath in Augusta St.

Mr Hubbard says BERG is “delighted” with the shire’s 2018-19 budget announcement of $150,000 to help solve the problem of sediment from unmade roads running into and clogging up Balcombe Estuary. Recent scientific environment studies commissioned by the shire had revealed the extent of the problem, with core samples showing that 5000 to 7000 years ago Balcombe Creek was an open estuary with its basin several metres deep. Over the past 80 years, sediment has smothered seagrass beds and built islands which are exposed at low water levels. As part of their fight against sealing roads resident have distributed copies of an article published in a real estate magazine which describes Mt Martha as “Melbourne’s answer to Byron Bay”, including how its dirt roads were part of the attraction for an author and her photographer husband to move there from suburban Gardenvale. Augusta Street resident James Syme told The News last October that more than 70 per cent of affected property owners were opposed to the Augusta Street scheme. “Council policy seems to be to ultimately seal all dirt roads on the Mornington Peninsula,” Mr Syme said. “Many of the criteria on which the policy relies have changed over the past 10 years. In particular, I think there is now considerably more recognition in the community of the charm of the unmade road environment.”

Anger over quarry ‘bypass’ Keith Platt keith@mpnews.com.au STATE Planning Minister Richard Wynne is under fire for allowing Hillview Quarries to bypass Mornington Peninsula Shire and begin investigating the environmental effects of reopening a quarry at Dromana. The mayor Cr Bryan Payne last week said council “is extremely disappointed with this premature decision”. Cr Payne said Hillview should have been required to first seek a planning permit from the shire “to ensure all matters pertinent to the operation of a quarry are considered at the local government level”.

Instead, Hillview has been given the go ahead by Mr Wynne to undertake an environmental effects statement (EES) into its reopening proposal as well as “door knocking” neighbouring property owners “Quarry effects to be assessed” The News 26/6/18). Hillview CEO Paul Nitas has estimated the former Pioneer quarry in Boundary Road, which Hillview wants to reopen, could supply one million tonnes of rock for 70 years. The shire is one of the company’s biggest customers (“Moves to reopen quarry” The News 1/5/18). Five years ago Hillview abandoned its plan to use the quarry as a waste tip after it met with strong public opposition.

This time around, in letter to surrounding property owners, Mr Nitas has said the minister’s decision means his company would need to “conduct rigorous environmental investigations into potential impacts on flora and fauna, waterways, cultural heritage as well as social and economic impacts”. However, Cr Payne says councillors are “very frustrated with this result”. “Council is concerned the [Mr Wynne] has not committed to fully consulting with the local community and is not following proper planning processes,” Cr Payne stated in a news release headed “Council voices frustration at premature planning decision”. He said the shire had asked Mr

Wynne to refuse Hillview’s request to undertake an EES and, instead, direct the company to lodge a planning permit application with the shire. “If permits are granted, the changes will be detrimental to local biodiversity and the shire’s values under the Green Wedge Management Plan,” Cr Payne said. “The proposal requires a cut 190 metres deep into the side of Arthur’s Seat, with very little regard to flora and fauna, landscape, landslide and any other inhabitants of the southern peninsula – it is not acceptable and is significantly alarming. “Council, together with our community, works very hard to have our

voices heard. As the local authority, it is our responsibility to assess changes made to our local townships.” The proposal to reopen the quarry has also been referred to the federal government under the Environment Protection and Biodiversity Conservation Act 1999 (EPBC Act). The shire is also urging residents to “voice their concerns around this development” at epbcnotices.environment.gov.au/referralslist/ Cr Payne said the shire was waiting for the state government to outline the next steps in the EES process “which are likely to include a consultation plan and establishment of a technical reference group”.

Man rescued from burning house Stephen Taylor steve@mpnews.com.au AN off-duty policeman dragged a Somerville resident from his burning home, probably saving his life, on the afternoon of Friday 29 June. Senior Constable Darren Prestney, formerly of Mornington police and now at Dandenong Sexual Offences Unit, was walking his dog in Rex Court about 3.40pm when he saw smoke coming from the roof. Running to the front door he peered inside and heard a faint call for help. A man in his 60s was lying in the hallway after falling from his wheelchair as he attempted to crawl to safety from the kitchen. He had earlier fallen asleep in front of the stove while cooking and been overcome by smoke when parts of the kitchen caught fire. Senior Constable Prestney kicked in the front door and rushed inside to pull the man out. The brick veneer house was well alight and the interior filled with flames and smoke. Firefighter Geoff Gommers, of Somerville CFA, said the house was “40 per cent involved” when crews rushed to the scene 10 minutes later. Power lines were sparking and the entire front of the house was ablaze. The fire took 45 minutes to bring under control and another two hours to fully extinguish. CFA crews managed to save two boats and a shed, as well as jewellery, mementoes, and two wheelchairs from inside the house. One electric mobility scooter was lost. Firefighter Gommers said he was recommending Senior Constable Prestney for a bravery award. This was confirmed by Somerville CFA Captain David O’Brien who said the policeman had “made a really good effort”. “I’ve just completed the paperwork for the award and sent it to district headquarters and they will make the recommendation.” Hastings Senior Sergeant Shane Pola also

commended the policeman’s efforts in saving the man’s life. “He did very well,” he said. “He was in the right place at the right time to help.” A fire investigator had been requested to examine the scene next morning. CFA stations launched a residential fire safety campaign on Wednesday 20 June to raise awareness of fire safety around the home in colder months. Across Victoria, CFA crews attended 467 preventable house fires last winter – up 15 per cent on other seasons. Unattended cooking is the single biggest cause of fire in the home throughout the year, with heating-related fires up over winter. CFA areas recorded 121 chimney fires and 29 fires related to wood-fuelled heating. Preventable fires also started when clothes were left to dry too close to the heat source, in clothes dryers, and from candles. So far this season, CFA fire investigators have attended fires caused by candles left unattended

close to furniture, cooking left unattended, embers from open fireplaces falling onto carpet, and portable heaters left too close to towels. CFA Chief Officer Steve Warrington warned that there was no “off-season” when it comes to fires. “Winter is a time where we’re spending more time inside keeping warm by enjoying an open fire and a home-cooked meal or cranking up the heater,” he said.

Car torched A CAR was set alight at the Devilbend Nature Park early Wednesday morning, 4 July. Senior Sergeant Neil Aubert, of Mornington police, said the burning Holden Barina was found in the car park off Graydens Road at 12.45am. Moorooduc CFA crews extinguished the blase. The extent of the fire made identification difficult. Detectives from Mornington Peninsula CIU said the cause of the fire was “suspicious”.

Hunt for card thief A MAN, above, who stole a purse containing credit and bank cards from a car parked overnight in Mt Martha, Tuesday and Wednesday 5 and 6 June, used them to buy five items at shops along Nepean Highway from Dromana to Rosebud.

Signs come and go to control dogs at threatened beach had paid so much attention over summer, environment protection manager John Rankine said: “Beach patrols are conducted through the summer months and include patrols of all shire managed beaches several times per week.” During summer the rangers at one stage erected a “Dogs prohibited” sign within metres of the sign outlining restrictions during daylight saving. One councillor (who “tries not to get involved in dog issues”) told The News: “I get residents complaining that they can’t get a ranger to respond”. The News sent the shire a photograph showing the Dog off-leash” sign at the bottom of the access stairs, but Mr Rankine has yet to respond to whether it was placed there in error. If it was a mistake, the error was repeated several times over several years, with the signs being replaced each time that the stairs were rebuilt. Mr Rankine said councillors are not “routinely advised” on where dog signs are placed, although they were ones who “decide on the leash free status and this requires a report and formal resolution of council, identifying the specific areas that are to be designated leash free”. Leash-free areas must be advertised by council in the Government Gazette. The stairs along with many boat sheds at Mt Martha Beach North have been repeatedly wrecked by storms. At one stage the then Department

Keith Platt keith@mpnews.com.au LEASH-FREE signs were placed last month on the beach at Mt Martha Beach North. The signs on steel poles were about 50 metres north from the bottom of the beach access stairs, where identical signs were installed a couple of years ago. Those signs no longer exist at the stairs, but the movement of signs at the small beach has caused confusion over its status for dogs. Mornington Peninsula Shire rangers visited the 80 metre long strip of sand 41 times over summer. The shire has never directly responded to questions about the installation and removal of the leash-free signs from the access stairs, instead supplying diagrams of the adjoining leash-free Hawker Beach and “Mt Martha North dog signage”, which shows signs in the car park at what is more commonly recognised as Mt Martha Beach South. A sign at the Mt Martha Beach North stairs now says “Dogs must be on leash at all times”. Another sign at the entrance to the track leading down to the stairs says they are not allowed on the beach from 9am to 7pm during daylight saving but are allowed there, on a leash, at other times. Asked by The News to nominate a comparable beach where shire rangers

of Sustainability and Environment moved to stop the boat sheds being rebuilt as the beach was seen to be “dynamic” and unstable. However, the then Labor government was forced to back track and allow the shire to issue building permits. Since then the beach has continued to change with the seasons and beach box owners are now lobbying for a rock wall to be built in the sea in a bid to stop sand loss. Coincidentally, a report released last week by the Victorian Coastal Council uses a picture of beach boxes at Mt Martha Beach North to illustrate its message that there are more problems to come. The report - Victoria’s Coast and Marine Environments under Projected Climate Change - warns of a greater tidal range within Port Phillip and its detrimental effect on infrastructure. The Department of Water Environment Land and Planning plans to use large boulders to stem erosion of the cliffs behind the beach boxes at Mt Martha Beach North, although the most persuasive argument to spend taxpayers’ money this way is based on the danger of The Esplanade collapsing. Cracks in the bitumen are clearly visible (and regularly patched) from just north of the bridge over Balcombe Creek to near Helena Street.

Misguided ‘championing’ of stray and feral cats Frankly, l believe that the vast majority of our concerned community understand that we have a cat problem caused by neglect, overpopulation and the predator instinct that is decimating native bird and small mammal populations. The minority is showing a disregard for the real problems of animal welfare by championing the rights of stray and feral cats to kill and be returned to kill again. This misguided energy would be better used in helping lift the dismal microchipping rate of only 10 per cent for cats compared to 90 per cent for dogs even though it is compulsory for both. Show that you really care for cats by having them neutered and chipped and the cared for cats will be returned to their concerned owners from the animal shelter. Keeping cats from illegally roaming will of course also help solve the problem. David Gill, councillor Red Hill Ward, Mornington Peninsula Shire

Sensible approach All praise to the Mornington Peninsula Shire for its decision (this time) to re-advertise the CEO’s position as, of course, it should. It doesn’t matter how good the president of the Nepean Ratepayers Association thinks Carl Cowie is in the job. It is very bad policy to rubber stamp anyone in the same position time after time, whether it is Mr Cowie or anyone else. Perhaps Colin Watson has a bias in the opposite direction (“Reappoint CEO” Letters 26/6/18)? What I would like to know is, what does the CEO precisely do to justify earning $400,000 a year? Does he actually work eight hours a day five days a week? I doubt it, but even if he did, no one is worth that amount of money. How did such an excessive payment come to be the norm, for the CEO, together with multiple perks for councillors? Wasn’t being a councillor once a prestige position for the privilege of serving the community? Bring back common sense. Gwen Thomas, Somerville.

Not light work Recently, I needed an electrician. It was impossible to put a globe into the ancient batten above my stove. I rang a few numbers which I found on the internet. “We don’t service that area anymore.” I was getting stressed. When I found a well organised operation which promised same day service. I simply said “yes”. I was delighted. However, I paid for it: $290 for two light battens to be screwed into my kitchen ceiling. I was stunned. I was also given an unsolicited quote for a new power board - it was more than $3000. Be warned. Prompt service can be very expensive. As an age pensioner (that was three days income) I’d be interested to know if there’s an ombudsman for old people who suspect they’ve been ripped off.

It would be wonderful to be reimbursed some of that money. Evelyn Lawson, Karingal

Australia ever saw. The constant undermining of his leader Malcolm Turnbull isn’t enough. Now he’s even disagreeing with himself on his signature on the Paris climate agreement. An agreement under which Australia managed to again ride on the back of the rest of the world on emission control. In the religious fervour of a belief in the upcoming rupture, Mr Abbott would like to condemn the rest of us who may not be quite as mad, to a slow death through irreversible climate change. He needs to go [out of politics], the sooner the better for us all. Rupert Steiner, Balnarring beach

Rally for refugees

THE footpath in Point Nepean Road, Rye which was damaged when a vehicle left the road.

Unfair path scheme I attended the 26 June meeting of Mornington Peninsula Shire Council to hear debate on a resolution sponsored by the mayor Cr Bryan Payne to discontinue the Coppin Road, Sorrento footpath special charge scheme. This scheme was adopted by council in December 2015 despite 87 per cent of residents being opposed. The footpath will sit on the edge of the road gutter for much of its length. Pedestrians, including school students, will walk within centimetres of motor vehicles, including buses. Cyclist have to be given a one metre gap by motorists, but this won’t be the case with users of this footpath. A vehicle recently damaged a section of newly-constructed footpath on the edge of Point Nepean Road between Rye and Blairgowrie. This is crazy planning, given the footpath could be built well back from the road. A shire engineer’s report gives the Coppin Road footpath a high ranking for construction given its location and high usage by the community. This ranking would normally ensure it is paid for from the capital works budget. Residents, including pensioners, would not then be hit with a charge of up to $4000. Cr Payne supports the ranking and capital works funding option. Cr Hugh Fraser says residents should pay for what I and most residents see as an unsafe footpath design. At the meeting Cr Fraser prevailed with a five to four vote. The mover of the motion to scrap the scheme, Cr David Gill, eventually voted against his own motion. Residents have a legal opinion that the scheme is illegal given the changes made by shire staff to the one endorsed by council. Residents are grateful to Cr Payne for his support. In a world where common sense prevailed, this scheme would be abandoned until all residents’ concerns have been adequately addressed. Geoff Allen, Sorrento

Undermining Abbott [Former prime minister] Tony Abbott is at it again. Sadly, one cannot even say he’s consistent. He must be the sorest looser in politics

What a great letter from Ann Renkin (“Answer to refugees” 26/6/18). I would like readers to come to the rally at 2pm on 21 July outside the State Library Victoria in Swanston Street, Melbourne in protest against the incarceration of the 137 children on Nauru. How can our politicians who have children or grandchildren growing up here condemn these to a life of isolation? It is monstrous - something akin to the way the Gestapo operated during the World War II. Do Australians want to be remembered in this way in the future - a country that isolated refugees on islands and left them without hope or a future? Bring them here. As Ann Renkin said “the sky will not fall in”. We are big enough to manage it. Patricia Rayner, Somers

Swastika ignorance Mindless graffitists who daubed a swastika on a tree at Bittern have not created the offence intended (“Swastikas ‘repugnant’, says civil rights group” The News 3/7/18). Nazis rotated the ancient symbol 45 degrees, whereas the Buddhist and Hindu swastika was depicted as painted, representing the north pole, the centre and the axle of the world. It represents auspiciousness and well being. So hold the outrage, but certainly clean it off for the well being of the tree. Fran Henke, Hastings

Need ‘proactive’ Hunt Great to see that all our representatives are fighting to save our precious green wedge (“Parties urged to reveal policies” The News 26/6/18). Perhaps that means there will be no more subdivisions of rural land like that approved by the Mornington Peninsula Shire right in the middle of the length of Coolart Road, in Wonderland Avenue, where the turnover price for recently constructed houses is apparently around $2.5 million. Quite correctly, [Flinders MP] Greg Hunt, a former environment minister, says we need “a proactive approach is needed to manage these pressures appropriately” (“Green wedge ‘vital’ for the future - Hunt” The News 26/6/18). Being proactive would mean being careful in the approval of activities surrounding the green wedge so that they don’t compromise it. The AGL plan to import gas through Crib Point is an example of one of the challenges to the green wedge, given it represents a substantial environmental threat to Western Port, compromises tourist infrastructure like the proposed

Stony Point to Cowes ferry and will run a pipeline through Warringine Park and the farmland of Melbourne’s food bowl to the north, which is in the Western Port green wedge. Mr Hunt telling us that he doesn’t support that would be a good start to being proactive, especially given the Australian Energy Market Operator’s June 2018 Gas Statement of Opportunities for Eastern and South Eastern Australia highlights that: “No supply gaps are forecast before 2030 under expected market conditions. The risk of shortfalls previously projected for 2019 has been reduced due to changes in the energy markets”. Clearly, we don’t need it and the threats it brings. Don Juniper, Bittern

Disaster in the making North bound traffic is a disaster waiting to happen at the Young Street, Frankston shopping precinct. I have seen many near misses. It is much too narrow without any adequate speed signage and it is only a matter of time before there is a serious accident. Frankston Council and VicRoads will be held accountable. Young Street may conform to current regulation standards, but it is still extremely dangerous. Where negligence is proven, those to blame can do gaol time. Make Frankston safe again. Vic Langsam, Frankston

Cruelty here at home The Yulin Dog Meat Festival in China has just finished for another year. Thousands of dogs were barbarically slaughtered and their flesh sold as food. For us, the thought of killing, cooking, dismembering, and eating our animal companions is enough to make most of us lose our lunch. But there’s no rational reason why the thought of eating any other animal shouldn’t elicit the same revulsion – especially when animals raised and slaughtered in Australia often face horrors akin to those endured by the dogs in Yulin. Dogs killed and eaten in Yulin are crammed into small cages and put on trucks, which may then travel for hundreds of kilometres to Yulin, often deprived of food, water, and rest. The same happens to millions of sheep, lambs, cows, and other animals within Australia. The live export trade transports animals to Southeast Asia and the Middle East, thousands of kilometres, only to meet their violent end via a slaughterer’s blade. We’re offended by reports of dogs at Yulin being boiled alive. But right here in Australia, countless chickens and turkeys meet a similar fate every single day: at the abattoir, many of these intelligent birds manage to keep their heads out of the electrified water baths meant to stun them, leaving them fully conscious as their throats are slit, and many are still alive as they’re immersed in scalding-hot water to remove their feathers. No animal wants to suffer and die for our palate. Yes, let’s be outraged by the cruelty that takes place during the Yulin Dog Meat Festival, but let’s extend our compassion to all animals – not just dogs – by leaving them off our plates.

Changing schools can be a backward step

Head first: The tipper rolled down a slope and crashed into the house. Pictures: Supplied

Truck makes house call A TRUCK driver was lucky to escape injury when his tipper rolled down a slope and into a Mornington house, Thursday 5 July. Sergeant David Collins, of Somerville Highway Patrol, said the 47-year-old driver of Cranbourne, was loading a skip bin in Flame Tree Grove when the front wheels lifted and the truck slid forward, crashing

into the front of the two-storey house and causing extensive damage, 1pm. The shocked owner was reportedly home at the time. No one was injured in the incident. A heavy haulage tow truck was called in to pull the truck free. A Mornington Peninsula Shire surveyor later inspected the house to ascertain the scope of the damage.

CHANGING schools can have a detrimental effect on a student’s mental health and academic performance. Exploring the effects of “school transition on student wellbeing” formed the basis of a talk given by Toorak College, Mt Eliza principal, Kristy Kendall, to 750 educators from 22 countries in the United States. Mrs Kendall said it had been an honour to be one of the few Australians invited to speak at the Global Forum on Girls’ Education in Washington DC. “I passionately believe in girls' education and the power of building resilience, self-esteem and self-confidence in the next generation of leaders,” Mrs Kendall said on her return. Her presentation to the forum “explored the social, emotional, cognitive and moral developmental periods of girls and how disruption in the form of school transition can have detrimental effects on a student’s mental health and academic performance”. “We know that changing schools is harder when girls have low self-esteem and when they are in the early stages of establishing their own identity. “Throughout my presentation, I encouraged the audience to put the developmental milestones of their students at the heart of the decisions they make. This includes everything from entry points, transition processes, how and what they teach, and how they build capacity in the minds of young girls.”

Hundreds protest over power plans Keith Platt keith@mpnews.com.au MORE than 400 protesters have made it clear that they do not want a floating gas import terminal at Crib Point or a pilot hydrogen export plant at Hastings. Sunday’s rally at Hastings foreshore – under the banner “one rally, two threats” - was the culmination of months of uncertainty over the two projects: one designed to meet the state’s gas needs and the other to provide fuel for vehicles in Japan. It was organised by Save Westernport and Westernport and Peninsula Protection Council with support from Environment Victoria, the Victorian National Parks Association, Friends of the Earth and Blue Wedges Coalition. Power company AGL’s proposal at Crib Point involves a 300 metre long floating storage and regasification unit (FSRU) turning liquefied natural gas (LNG) into gas before it is piped to Pakenham. Opponents say the process threatens the bay’s ecology by returning millions of litres of cooled, chlorinesterilised water back into the bay. They also claim there is a risk of explosion and noise. The Labor state government is supporting AGL, while Hastings MP, Liberal Neale Burgess remains “totally opposed to its project, the way it is treating this community and that I will do everything within my power to stop it”. Flinders MP Greg Hunt says he is DECKING

Pictures: Alison Hoelzer, Chris Chandler and Don Juniper gy market operator has confirmed there is no gas shortage, so there is no justification for AGL to barge ahead with this polluting new project.” The Victorian National Parks Association’s nature campaigner Shannon Hurley said AGL’s project “poses significant risk to the high natural values of Western Port … [which] provides critical habitat for migratory birds, and is home to one of the most southerly extents of mangrove species globally”.

Louise Page, of Save Westernport said the proposal by AGL was “a short term measure that has long term consequences and potentially threatens the environment and safety of the local community”. “Continuing to invest in the dying fossil fuel industry [the hydrogen plant] is an equally bad decision at a time when we need to be investing more in rapidly transitioning to the growing market of renewable energy.”

Made in the Shade Umbrellas LARA Hobbs has taken up the reins at Made in the Shade Umbrellas. This award winning local business, established in Seaford forty years ago, has the enviable reputation of making and servicing the world’s most beautiful outdoor shade umbrellas, each handcrafted by skilled tradesmen in our factory from the very finest timbers and canvas. Our umbrellas can be found in many of the finest resorts, restaurants, wineries and homes, not just in Australia, but also around the world! Lara lives in Mt Eliza with her husband Steve and their two children Ashley

Bayside Shoes I never expected to be running a business when I started at the young age of 15 working in an accountant’s office, learning how to manage trust accounts and fill in tax forms. Here I am over 50 years later, as the owner of Bayside Shoes that I have been managing for the past 30 years. Combining a young family of four children, coaching while playing A Grade basketball and Netball (later playing Masters) and at one stage running two stores, it is difficult to understand how I found the time. I have lived and worked in the Seaford/ Frankston area for most of this time and seen significant positive changes in the life style environment that has flowed through to

and Michael.They arrived in Australia 4.5 years ago from South Africa ready for a change. Having worked in the I.T. industry for over 15 years, and run two small companies; Lara is excited to be taking over this fantastic local business from Eliza Foster. July and August are the ideal time of year to have your timber and canvas umbrellas professionally serviced, cleaned and re-waterproofed. We also make robust zippered storage covers to protect your umbrella, and if you book in a service before the 20th of August, we will give you a discount of $50 off the cost of a new storage cover for mentioning that you read

the local community. During the 1980’s we sold low cost, high volume footwear, while today we offer a large range of quality leather shoes and boots to suit children, ladies and men for work, school, play or that special occasion like a wedding. Bayside Shoes also works with the local podiatrists to offer a “ shoe solution” for difficult foot problems whether you are a size 5 or size 17 in shoe size. We are very involved with the local community to support fund raisers for the local hospitals, schools, bowls and tennis clubs as well a specific charities like Cystic Fibrosis. Bayside Shoes offers an enjoyable shopping

MainStreet Eyecare

Main Street Eye Care AS owner and manager of Main Street Eyecare, Kay Tyrie, is passionate about spectacles. With over 30 years of experience, she has an eye for - and love of - fashion and delights in helping people find just the right pair of glasses to suit their look and lifestyle. “If your eyes are the window to your soul, then your glasses are the window frames,” explains Kay. “They are your first point of contact with someone, and we don’t all want to look the same.” Main Street Eyecare prides itself on stocking a wide range of designer frames, specialising in European and Australian designed and made. Featuring the likes of Silhoutte rimless (as worn by Donald Sutherland in

‘The leisure Seekers’), award winning Jono Hennessy, Paul Taylor, Kaleos and IyokoInyake, as well as offering custom made frames by Roger Henley that can be tailored specifically to your wishes. Main Street Eyecare is Mornington’s oldest optometrist, and has been owned by Kay since 2001 and run as a family business. All her staff have a dedication to customer service and patient care, something Kay feels very strongly about in today’s increasingly homogenised retail world. “We treat our customers the way we’d like to be treated, no matter the reason for their visit,” Kay explains. “The heath of your eyes and the quality

CHERRI Davis started her business in 2010 from her home kitchen. Tea is a big part of her life, her family has always loved tea, and she is passionate about creating highquality organic tea blends for people to enjoy. Cherri has a background in aromatherapy and herbalism and applies this knowledge to bring the best out of her teas. “I feel well equipped and knowledgeable with what I am doing, I trust myself, I trust my gut,” she says. The business started out as the Loose Lips Tea Co and has recently undergone a rebrand. Cherri feels that the name OrganiTea is a perfect fit for

her business as the majority of her products are organic. Each and every tea is unique with around 70 blends available, all hand blended. Popular varieties include the Cheeky Chai Range, the SpecialTEAS, SimpliciTEAS, My Organic Tea and the Lifestyle Ranges. OrganiTea produces and sells their teas online and through retailers and distributors, and is available direct to the public via a newly opened store located in Mornington. She has started exporting her teas to the US and has big dreams for her company and hopes for it to continue growing.

ON THE COVER

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

MID-CENTURY HEAVEN IN BLAIRGOWRIE THEY say that a true classic never goes out of style and this certainly applies to this beautiful mid 20th century modernist beach house. “Four Winds� is a uniquely original home, built in about 1959, that has since been respectfully upgraded to retain its charming original architecture, whilst still providing all of the modern day comforts. The home is immaculately presented and set on a picturesque 1100 square metre block dotted with quaint patio areas overlooking the established trees. Four living areas include a fabulous open plan zone incorporating a kitchen with meals area, and a spacious family room that opens to a private patio. The recently renovated kitchen features an integrated Miele dishwasher, and a fridge and second dishwasher from Leibhher. A formal lounge embraces the northerly aspect with large windows capturing the sun and at the same time affording a gorgeous view of the surrounding gardens, whilst a very cool man cave has polished concrete floors and provides ultimate privacy, storage and escapism for everyone in the family. Three bedrooms include the huge master bedroom with ensuite and a wall of wardrobes with remaining bedrooms sharing the main bathroom. This home really is for the purchaser that is after something undeniably different and if the glass etched doors displaying palm trees or the beautiful bluestone fire place or the luscious lime-wash floorboards or the crazy pave patios where you can enjoy a sundowner or two do not utterly enchant you, the clincher has to be the magnificent iron gates that proudly stand guard at the front of the property. A crushed rock driveway provides a couple of parking bays and under the roof line of the home is a carport.n

IN BUSINESS Smart Business Solutions SHANNON Smit and Nadia Hughes are not your average pen-pushing accounting nerds. As accountants and financial advisors, business owners and property developers, they each understand the challenges business owners face. Not to mention, both of these inspiring and driven women have young families of their own, each juggling their roles of mother and business owner beautifully. After nearly 8 years abroad working at some of the world’s leading accounting firms, and following the birth of her second child, a newfound focus quickly led Shannon to identify a crucial gap in the accounting market for small to medium

businesses: SMART Business Solutions, a boutique accounting firm providing high-end tax and accounting expertise to small to medium size enterprises. Originally working as a journalist in Russia and migrating to Australia, Nadia completed her university degree with flying colours. Her professional development continued with networking events, which is where the duo eventually met. Nadia soon discovered Shannon’s shared passion for technical excellence and a diverse and progressive workplace, which is exactly what they set out to create. A partnership was formed, and the rest, as they say, is history.

are a business owner, you need somebody like an insurance broker to take the pain away for you and come up with solutions to help your business prosper. After all, you see an accountant or bookkeeper to organise your accounts, a lawyer to help with the legalities, therefore why wouldn’t you visit a broker to manage your risk and insurance exposures?,” Teresa says. At BJS Insurance Brokers, the team will help find the correct insurance for your business, making sure to have the right cover to protect your business and personal assets. “It is important for business owners to come to an insurance broker, as we can offer educated advice about the correct

OBITUARY

The Rev John Leaver - minister, chaplain, education pioneer and family man

A lifetime of service: Reverend Leaver (left) and pictured with wife Wendy (above).

OBITUARY

John Aylmer Leaver AO RFD ED 1930-2018 School chaplain By Peter McCullough THE Reverend John Aylmer Leaver AO RFD ED died on 15 May at the age of 87. It was estimated that more than 900 attended the memorial service which was held at The Ansett Hall, Peninsula Grammar, on 24 May. Best known as the chaplain at Peninsula Grammar, a position he held for 24 years, the Rev Leaver also played a key role in the setting up of a number of Christian schools and he was a long-time chaplain in the Army Reserve. In 2000 he was awarded the AO for his services to education and his work in the community. Stuart Johnston, principal of Peninsula Grammar, gave the welcoming address and eulogies were given by The Right Reverend Dr Paul Barker, Bishop of the Jumbunna Region, the Anglican Diocese of Melbourne; Brigadier Doug Perry OAM RFD ED ; and Stephen Higgs, executive general manager of Victorian Ecumenical System of Schools. The homily was given by the Rev Roger Rich. Family tributes were provided by daughter Susan Collopy and grandson Charlie Collopy. This obituary is based on the addresses given by the various speakers. Studies and Marriage John Leaver was born on 29 August, 1930 to Esmond and Dorothy Leaver. At the time John’s father was the Anglican priest at Myrtleford and the childhood of John and his two siblings (David and Laurel) was spent moving around the Diocese of Wangaratta. This included time in Wodonga, Violet Town, Alexandra and then Seymour; many hours were spent in local swimming pools and consequently John became a strong swimmer. He was also a member of junior cricket and football teams.

PAGE 48

Mornington News 10 July 2018

In 1941 John became a boarder at Ivanhoe Grammar School. He embraced all that Ivanhoe had to offer but still enjoyed his school holidays: swimming in the Goulburn River at Seymour, attending the local movie theatre on Friday nights, and reading book after book. Even books on the banned list were sought out. In his final year at Ivanhoe John was a school prefect, captain of the boarding house, the debating team and tennis team as well as librarian and editor of the school magazine. On matriculating he became an active member of the Old Ivanhoe Grammarians, remaining true to their school motto: Faithful even unto Death. John’s first job was with the Commonwealth Oil Refinery as a junior clerk, then as an assistant librarian at the University of Melbourne (where books were plentiful), and then the Royal Insurance Company as an insurance clerk. After much soul searching, John enrolled for theological studies. In 1956 the Rev John Leaver took up his first appointment at St Peter’s, Murrumbeena; it was an active parish with Sunday school, youth groups and a tennis club. The church’s annual revue was being directed by a talented young teacher from Korowa Girls Grammar School, Wendy Tonks. With the assistance of his brother’s yellow MG , John started courting Miss Tonks which led to their marriage on 5 February, 1960. Wherever they went, whether it was Lancefield, Seymour, Maryborough or Mt Eliza they worked as a team with Wendy’s music complementing John’s ministry as parish priest and chaplain. The “John and Wendy show” was always a time of caring and sharing, and support for all ages and all backgrounds. Christian Education It was during John’s time at Maryborough that he started his incredible contribution to education. In 1972 the local Catholic priest got in touch with him: could he encourage Anglicans

to send their children to St Joseph’s Secondary College to avoid its impending closure? John realised that if all churches supported a ecumenical school, its future would be secure. As a result Highview College was established in 1974. This led to Braemar College in Mt Macedon in 1975, Bayview College in Portland in 1977 which grew from the struggling Loreto convent school, followed by Newhaven College on Phillip Island, Beaconhills College (Pakenham), Overnewton College (Keilor), Christian College (Geelong), Casey Grammar (Cranbourne), Hume Anglican Grammar (Craigieburn), Trinity Albury, Trinity Wodonga, Cathedral College (Wangaratta), Moama Anglican Grammar, and, more recently, Balcombe Grammar, Mt Martha. All were initiated or assisted by the Rev John Leaver. John initially formed the Association of Ecumenical Schools then, in 1996, the Victorian Ecumenical System of Schools with himself as executive officer. Today there are 14 schools which he had a hand in founding and another 12 members of VESS which have benefited from the system. This is a phenomenal record of benefit to young people, and the advancement of Christian education. Peninsula Grammar School Meanwhile, in the Easter of 1974, John, Wendy and their two daughters (Jane and Susan) arrived on the Mornington Peninsula as John had accepted the role of chaplain to both Toorak College and The Peninsula School (as it was then known). With the support of the two school he also became the founding priest of the Parish of Mt. Eliza North. It was in this role that John’s selflessness became widely known. He worked tirelessly to unite the community in a shared vision of faith and hope. Worship was held in The Ansett Hall and so began the first school-based parish in Australia. In all of these activities he was ably supported by Wendy; they led by example, with grace and dignity, and

shared an unwavering belief in their faith. As the school chaplain John involved himself in a wide range of activities from worship services and impassioned addresses at assemblies to conducting the “Holy Donut” stall at the school fete. During his 24 years as chaplain he touched the hearts of so many young people and their families and maintained a close connection with many of them after his retirement. When one of the speakers at the service asked for a show of hands of those who had been baptised or married by John, at least 400 responded; in some instances both hands were raised. John Leaver’s standing at Peninsula Grammar was summed up by Stuart Johnson: “He was a loyal friend, a role model, an entrepreneur, a teacher, a confidant, an adviser and a colleague. His memory will live on through the brightness that he brought to our community, the selflessness of his giving to others, and the time that he spent ensuring that all of us, here today, could unite and share our faith, our hope, our love together.” In 2000 the Rev John Leaver was awarded the AO for his services to education and his work in the community. But he still worked tirelessly for those causes in which he believed. One of his last projects was his involvement in the establishment of the Abacus Learning Centre in Hastings; a school for children with autism spectrum disorder on the peninsula. Working with this group of parents who had a vision to enable their children to reach their fullest potential, and to observe the development of the children in the program, would be one of John Leaver’s most rewarding contributions. Army Reserve. John Leaver enlisted in the Army Reserve as a chaplain in July 1959, and retired after 26 years service with the rank of Lieutenant Colonel. At the time of his enlistment he was the vicar at Seymour and consequently

his first posting was to Puckapunyal. For most of his service in the Army Reserve however, he was attached to 2nd Field Regiment, a reserve artillery unit. There he established a reputation for seeing that the hierarchy was made aware of any errors, shortcomings, or injustices and then ensuring that appropriate corrective action was taken. His success in this role led his fellow reservists to abandon the old expression “pulling strings” in favour of “pulling leavers”. Even in retirement John continued to minister and mentor his military colleagues in many ways and revelled in the ongoing social and ceremonial contact, from the Peninsula Grammar cadet unit to the full suite of formal and informal military functions, including the Anzac Day services at RSL Park. Family It would be remiss not to mention John Leaver’s devotion to his family. Their home was always happy and John and Wendy’s daughters, Jane and Susan, were taught the importance of generosity and kindness, friendship and love, respect and humility. There was also a need for determination and perseverance, as well as a thirst for knowledge and learning. His ability to read five books at the same time was quite incredible; to be able to retain the information was even more amazing. Guests would always be amused at the built-in book rack in the toilet; John’s explanation was “It’s the only room where I can get any peace”. The girls were encouraged in their chosen careers (teaching and pharmacy) and this support has been extended in more recent times to John’s grandchildren: Alex., Georgia, Emily and Charlie. The grandchildren have said: “We are more than fortunate and proud to have had the joy of having him in our lives as our Grandpa. We will miss him every day, but know he will be watching over us for the rest of our lives. We loved him so much.”


100 YEARS AGO THIS WEEK...

Somerville resident farewelled

Compiled by Brodie Cowburn THE news of Mrs George Gomm’s death, which took place at her residence last Sunday, was received with deep regret by a large circle of friends. Mrs Gomm was an old resident of Somerville and had been in failing health for some time. She was a valued worker of the local branch of the Lady Mayoress’ Patriotic League. She leaves a husband and two daughters to mourn her loss and our sympathy is extended to the bereaved family. The funeral took place at the Mornington Cemetery on Tuesday afternoon. Rev Rymer conducted the burial service. *** THE concert held in Frankston on Saturday evening last, in aid of the funds of the Langwarrin Military Training Camp, was undoubtedly one of the best concerts given in Frankston. The audience was a large one, and during the evening Mr Jolly announced that he had personally sold 102 tickets in Melbourne, which were not represented in the hall. The programme was a novel one to a Frankston audiences and every item was loudly applauded, encores being the order of the evening. The dancing of Miss Raie Langley was a treat in itself and the singing of Miss Rona Miller was splendid. The Langwarrin Orchestra played excellent music. Mr J. B. Jolly presided and in a neat speech introduced the Merry Eight Comedy Company, and welcomed them to Frankston.

In the course of his speech the chairman said that this company of talented young ladies had for a long period, with unfading energy and success, been creating pleasure for thousands who had extended patronage to them, and thereby swelling Red Cross, Repatriation and various patriotic funds. To date this company have netted £700. *** THE ceremony of planting an honor avenue to the memory of the men who enlisted from Frankston will take place at Frankston today, at 3 o’clock. The State Governor, Senator Miller and Captain Bruce, M. P. will be the principal speakers. When completed the avenue will be one mile long, and the tree selected is that fine Australian specimen Eucalyptus Batryoides. A feature of the function will be the presence of 500 returned soldiers. These will be conveyed to Frankston by the Volunteer Motor Corps, which on that day will complete its 500th soldiers’ motor excursion. The corps reserved its 500th trip for Frankston, in recognition of the extensive hospitality of the Frankston Wattle Club to soldiers. The Wattle Club will entertain the 500 returned soldiers at luncheon after the ceremony. *** HASTINGS school boys journeyed to Crib Point on Saturday to play football, the game being a very fine one. The total scores being, Hastings, 8 goals 6 behinds 54 points to Crib Point 5 goals 10 behinds 40 points.

Mrs Lewis and Mrs Davis of Crib Point treated the boys to afternoon tea, which was much appreciated by them. *** THE Lady Mayoress’ League (Somerville Branch) is giving a Japanese Fair in aid of the Comforts Fund etc, on August the 16th and 17th. Captain Bruce M. C., M H.R. has been asked to open the Fair. Mr Duncan Puckle is Hon. Organiser and Mrs Ralph Philbrick Hon. Sec. and a strong committee is being formed to make the affair of as widespread interest as possible. The local Red Cross Society has been asked to cooperate and share the profits. The interest of the Shire Council and other local bodies is also asked. The fair promises to be a huge success. Particulars will appear in our advertising columns at an early date. *** THE Frankston Electric Lighting Company is gradually enlarging its sphere of usefulness. Since Monday last it has been running an all night service, viz, from 5 p.m. to 7.30 a.m. This will prove of great benefit to those requiring light after the usual hours and should be an incentive to those not having it laid on to have it as speedily as possible. *** IN aid of that worthy body, the Frankston Red Cross society, a grand concert will be given in the Frankston hall on Saturday evening, 17th August. Mr J. B. Jolly, the Hon. Organiser, is

getting together some of Melbourne’s best professional artists, who will give their services gratis. It is expected that the celebrated actress and dancer, Miss Maud Chatwynd will appear, together with the gifted soprano, Miss Elsie Trewick. *** ADAMSON Strettle and Co will hold their monthly sale at Tanti, on Monday, when a good yarding will be offered, for sale, and on Wednesday next they will hold a clearing sale at Carrum, on behalf of Mr Christensen, who is disposing of his dairy cattle, horses, implements, etc. The sale will commence at 1.30 o’clock. *** THE Rev. Watts, of Holy Trinity Church, Hastings, preached a memorial service to the late Mrs Olive Bowells. *** ARBOR Day was observed at the Langwarrin State School on Friday, July 5th, when a number of trees were planted by the scholars and parents who attended. The school grounds are now stocked with a variety of trees and shrubs and gives promise of soon becoming an attractive, and picturesque spot. A rain gauge has been purchased and the following rain record for June has been registered by. the scholars and Head Teacher. *** SHIRE of Frankston and Hastings, MONTHLY MEETING. The monthly meeting of the above was held on Thursday, 4th July. Present:– Crs Oates, in the chair,

Mason, Turner, Hodgins, Watt, Unthank and Longmuir. An apology was received from Cr Clements for inability to attend. Engineer’s Report – The work of sheeting the Pt.

Wood 1s 6d. *** From the pages of the Mornington Standard, 13 July 1918

THE MEANING OF EXISTENCE... AND OTHER SHORT STORIES

Oh me, Oh my, OBike By Stuart McCullough SO that’s it, then. After just a few short months, they’ve given up and shipped out. For good. And while their appearance seemed a truly mysterious thing, their exit from our fair city is not mysterious at all. We drove them to it. Which, given we’re talking about bicycles rather than cars, is perhaps the cruelest insult of them all. Having now broken their spirit, they decided to roll on to some less-hostile territory. So long, obikes. I first saw one when jogging. It was dark and I was pretty tired, and I’ll admit I was a little startled to see it. I simply didn’t understand why a yellow bicycle was standing on the side of the road as though someone had left it behind. It never occurred to me that it was on purpose. I jogged past hoping that the rightful owner might remember where it was he or she left it and that all would be right in the world. That, so I thought, was that. Until I saw another. It seemed so much more than mere coincidence. Or carelessness. It became clear to me that these yellow contraptions were a thing. A slightly confusing thing but a thing nevertheless. I assumed that this was some kind of broad-ranging art project, doubtless connected to some festival. But I was way off. They were, in fact, for riding. Apparently, you need an app and you scan something and then it’s unlocked. By which time you might as well have walked. The great attraction of the oBike was the fact that it was ‘dockless’ and could be left pretty much anywhere, which is

exactly what people did. It was as if we resented both the intrusion and their freedom and set about punishing them for it. OBikes were strewn across the country and abandoning one in the most obscure place possible became something of a national pastime. They were welded together, abandoned in trees and light

poles and thrown into the river en masse where they were left to rust in a watery grave. Frankly, we were cruel and we were mean. It begs the question: what was it about the oBike that made us so angry? Perhaps we fear change. Something new that challenges traditional ways of thinking can be difficult. Or maybe

it was the bike itself – would we have felt such antipathy if – for example – they’d used a brand of bike we all know and love, like a Malvern Star? Could it be that they were far too utilitarian for our tastes? Truth be told, the oBike was the cycling equivalent of a Trabant. You didn’t see packs of middle aged dudes in lycra riding along Beach Road on oBikes. I suspect the element of surprise kind of worked against them. They seemed to appear pretty much without warning or explanation and we resented the intrusion. The social contract had not been drafted, much less signed by all interested parties. They turned up without invitation and were treated as party crashers as a result. You can’t walk through a front door and then try to knock. You put people off that way. Our response was to treat it as an invasion of our turf and in a gang war, pretty much anything goes. It’s been ages since I’ve ridden a bike. As a kid, I evolved from a dragster through to a BMX without a second thought. Owning a bike is an essential piece of equipment that you have as a child. Along with a torch and a dressing gown, I couldn’t have imagined life without a bike back then. But for some reason, I haven’t ever owned a bike as an adult. That’s despite being middle aged and a perfect candidate for lycra – if, indeed, such a thing exists. The moment I could drive was the moment I left behind my bike. It’s still at my father’s place – he’s no doubt saving it just in case, some

twenty five years later, I should change my mind and decide that I really need to start riding a BMX again. It’s unlikely that I’ll feel overwhelmed by the need to perform jumps, bunny hops and monos anytime soon, but I’ll ask him to hang on to it. Just in case. I’m hoping he still has my torch and dressing gown. I miss them. After years not riding a bike, a ride on an oBike might have been the ideal way to get back into it. I’m not sure what was holding me back. Now it’s officially too late. I’ll never get the chance to cruise down to the milkbar and back or give anyone a dink. If dinking is still the done thing when it comes to bikes. (Come to think of it, when I see those large groups of riders on a Sunday morning, no one’s giving anybody a dink. It’s totally dinkless.) So farewell oBikes. Hopefully they’ll be collected up and released back into the wild where they can roam together across the open plains. Many years from now – once I’ve got my BMX back in working order – I’ll go for a long ride and see if I can spot a herd of them grazing together beside a river. Grazing beside a river would be a lot better than being thrown into one, that much is certain. Granted, they were a bit strange and were visual clutter of a kind, but I’m not sure why we know why we felt the need to punish them. Good luck to them. Long may they ride. stuart@stuartmccullough.com Mornington News 10 July 2018

scoreboard Sharks slip up in sluggish conditions MORNINGTON NEWS

DIVISION ONE

By Brodie Cowburn LADDER leaders Sorrento Sharks succumbed to Bonbeach in a shock loss at home this Saturday in wet and windy weather. Bonbeach, who have struggled with inconsistency all through the season, had to endure a fast starting Sorrento in a first quarter that saw Bonbeach only register two scoring shots to their opponent’s 12. Sorrento were wasteful in front of goal however, and could only register two goals and 10 behinds to keep Bonbeach in touch. Bonbeach capitalised on Sorrento’s wasteful form in front of goal in the second quarter, as they established a nine-point lead going into the halftime break. Given the horror conditions, both teams were struggling to put goals on the board, which ensured the contest remained even right through to the final siren. Although Bonbeach could only manage one goal in the second half, they managed to hold on their lead to claim an important victory over Sorrento 4.15 (39) to 6.11 (47). The loss sees Sorrento lose their firm grip on top of the ladder, as Edithvale-Aspendale are now only behind them on percentage following their impressive win over Seaford. Edithvale-Aspendale also endured a difficult start and failed to adapt to the tough conditions, as they kicked seven straight behinds in the first term and went into the first break trailing last place Seaford. Edithvale-Aspendale quickly recov-

ered from their sluggish first quarter and established a lead in the second term that they would hold onto for the rest of the day.

Seaford couldn’t keep up with the quality of their opponents and eventually fell to Edithvale-Aspendale 8.20 (68) to 5.6 (36).

Sam Monaghan and Michael Bussey were again amongst the best performers for Edi-Asp, who could claim top spot on the ladder should Sorrento slip up again in the coming weeks. Both sides sit at 10 wins and three losses going into the last month of the home and away season. At Greg Beck Oval, Frankston YCW were faced with a do or die situation as they looked to beat the Frankston Bombers claim their first win in six weeks. Since their victory over Mornington in Round 6, Frankston YCW have yet to claim a single win, and would shockingly drop out of the top five if they failed to secure a result over their Frankston rivals. The Bombers had the best of the early opportunities, as they dominated the inside 50 count and looked much the better side. Despite having all the momentum, the water-logged ground made it difficult to capitalise, and the Bombers only went into the half-time break with a narrow two-point lead. With the Stonecats battling hard to fight their way back into the game, the game looked set to go down to the wire. Only two goals were kicked in the second half, but the tough, contested football saw the rabid Frankston crowd on the edge of their seats. When the final siren sounded it was the Bombers who held onto a slim lead, as they claimed victory over the

Stonecats 5.11 (41) to 5.5 (35). The loss sees the Stonecats slump to sixth on the ladder, unchartered territory for the side that has dominated the league for so long. They will have a bye next weekend, which will allow them a chance to rest and regain some key names. YCW’s Byron Barry and Christian Ongarello were impressive against a relentless Bombers outfit, as they were able to provide consistent rebound to give their side a glimpse of hope. Jason Kingbury, Dale Sutton, and Matthew Harris were the best performers for the winning side. At Olympic Oval, Rosebud played host to Pines in what would turn out to be a miserable afternoon for the home team. Pines got off to an impressive start and took a twenty point lead into the first break, and Rosebud wouldn’t come close to catching up. Pines’ defence held strong and only conceded three goals for the whole afternoon, as they ran out as convincing 3.8 (26) to 11.12 (78) winners. Aaron Edwards kicked another four goals to take his tally for the year to 38 from 11 games. Most teams will enjoy a week off next week, with Seaford and Rosebud at Belvedere Reserve being the only MPNFL Division One action for the weekend.

Hastings hold onto top five by beating Yabbies DIVISION TWO

By Brodie Cowburn HASTINGS have established a sixpoint gap between themselves and sixth place with a big win over Tyabb to put themselves in pole position for a finals spot. Hastings showed their intent early with a stunning five goals to zero first quarter in tough conditions, which set the tone for the remainder of the afternoon. Tyabb fought back to get within reach, but ultimately ran out of time and fell short by 16 points, going down to Hastings 10.7 (67) to 8.3 (51). Shaun Foster booted four goals in a best on ground performance for Hastings, while Jake Anderson impressed for the Yabbies with four goals of his own. It was business as usual for top of the ladder Dromana at home, as they beat Devon Meadows in a fairly comfortable victory. Devon Meadows kept in arms reach in the first term and went into the quarter time break only down by four, but Dromana quickly asserted their dominance in the second quarter. Devon Meadows were held scoreless in the second term, as Dromana ran away to a convincing lead that they would not let go of throughout the rest of the game. Rikki Johnston played his best game for the year, booting four goals for Dromana to help his side to an 8.15 (63) to 5.8 (38) win. There were also no surprises at Ballam Park Reserve as Karingal claimed a solid victory at home against Pearcedale. Coming off a shock loss to Langwarrin last week, the Bulls were looking to bounce back with a vengeance. The Bulls worked hard to put on a complete team performance, as they had eight individual goalkickers contribute towards a healthy win. With Chelsea hot on their heels, the Bulls could not afford to slip up, and they kept a hold of second place with a convincing 8.12 (60) to 6.5 (41) win. Chelsea needed to win to keep in touch with Karingal, and they did so in impressive fashion over a disappointing Rye outfit. The Seagulls struck hard early and has established a 22 point buffer by quarter time, which would prove to be insurmountable in the rough conditions. Scoring just one first-half goal, Rye struggled badly and never

looked a chance against their impressive Chelsea opponents. James Brain and Curtis Bywater kicked four goals each for Chelsea, the latter taking his tally for the year to 47, as the Seagulls claimed a comprehensive win 13.9 (87) to 4.6 (30). The win helped close the percentage gap, and they are now only marginally behind Karingal going into the closing rounds of the year. At Red Hill Recreation Reserve, Langwarrin travelled to take on fourth-placed Red Hill. Langwarrin came into the contest full of confidence having knocked off Karingal last weekend but unfortunately could not back up that performance. The Kangaroos started strong as both sides kicked two goals in the first term, but Langwarrin quickly lost control of the game as Red Hill held them scoreless for the next two whole quarters. Red Hill quickly kicked away and put on one of the most impressive defensive displays for the year as they ran away to a comfortable win. Langwarrin managed to score a few behinds in the final term but again failed to score a major as they went a stunning three quarters without a goal. Ben Hughes impressed with three goals for Red Hill, as his side completed a comfortable 7.13 (55) to 2.5 (17) win. In the final match of the weekend, Somerville hosted Crib Point in what would turn out to be another miserable afternoon for the visitors. Crib Point approached the game looking to claim just their second win for the year but were quickly put on the back foot as Somerville took a 15 point lead into the first break. Crib Point were able to prevent the home side from blowing out the lead too much, but ultimately could not fight their way back into the contest, as they went down to Somerville 9.8 (62) to 4.9 (33).

Strikers down Pines, Seaford wins again SOCCER

By Craig MacKenzie PENINSULA Strikers gave themselves a lifeline by winning Saturday’s State 2 South-East derby 2-0 against Frankston Pines at Monterey Reserve. It was only the club’s second win in a season of turmoil but it gives Strikers hope that they can climb off the foot of the league ladder. Referee James Milloy took centre stage before the match with opinions varied as to whether or not he should allow the contest to take place given the drenching the pitch had taken with little respite in sight. And eight minutes into the contest the home team was wishing that Milloy hadn’t given the fixture the thumbs up. Big Alex van Heerwarden smashed the ball onto the crossbar after Pines had failed to clear a low curled freekick from Nathan Smith and John Prescott hammered the rebound past Pines keeper Jarrod Nardino to open the scoring. Pines striker Mitch Lander broke down the left in the 16th minute then cut inside but he sent his low shot wide of the far post and a minute later it was 2-0. Brandon Jansz, Danny Black and Sam Luxford had all joined Strikers recently from Mornington and although Jansz’s through ball intended for Prescott was blocked it eventually fell to the English striker and his clinical low finish from 10 metres gave Strikers some breathing space. CJ Hodgson had Pines’ best chances of the second half but he volleyed wide in the 86th minute and 18-year-old Strikers’ keeper Dylan Mery got down well three minutes later to save Hodgson’s strike from inside the area. While Strikers’ gaffer Jamie Skelly was delighted with the win he knows the enormity of the task facing his men if they are to save their State 2 status. “We have to play five teams in the relegation mix and realistically we’d want to win all five games but we are capable of that,” Skelly said. Strikers continue to target new signings and take on title chasing Knox City this weekend. Don’t be surprised if another one and possibly two newcomers feature against Knox. In NPL2 news Langwarrin lost 3-2 away to championship-chasing Dandenong City last Friday night. Despite the gulf in class (and wages’ bill) and the home side dominating possession Langy proved to be a stubborn opponent and it took a contender for goal of the season from David Stirton

to settle the issue. Dandenong’s hallmark interpassing game was on show throughout the first half but the sides were locked at 1-1 at the break. Shaun Filipovic’s 8th minute header put City ahead but it paid for its profligacy in front of goal when Mehdi Sarwari’s close-range strike in the 33rd minute gave Langy the equaliser. But three minutes into the second stanza the Langy defence paid the price of failing to attack a curling cross from Shayan Alinejad on the right and the ball bounced inside the six-yard box before sneaking inside the far post to make it 2-1. When Brendan Richardson decided to take on two opponents in the 68th minute rather than pass he was stripped of the ball. Stirton spotted Langy keeper Robbie Acs off his line so he launched a remarkable strike from a few steps inside the attacking half sending the ball sailing over Acs’ head and into goal to the delight of the home fans and the City bench. But for Langy there’s no surrender and when John Kuol headed home in the 81st minute following a cross from substitute Liam Baxter it ensured an interesting finish to a contest that City should have put to bed earlier. In NPLW news Southern United’s under-12s drew 2-2 at home to Bayside United on Sunday with Emilia Ingles scoring for Southern. The under-14, under-16, under-19 and senior games were cancelled due to

the pitch condition. In State 1 South-East news Mornington paid the price for poor finishing and was eventually overrun by Richmond 4-1 at Kevin Bartlett Reserve on Saturday. A near post header from Mehdi Martin in the 17th minute put the home side in front and three minutes into the second half Vangelis Skraparas’ deflected shot from just outside the area made it 2-0. Arnold Suew broke down the left in the 59th minute and his cutback set up Juan Gallego for a tap-in and the same combination cut a swathe through the Mornington defence in the 80th minute with Gallego cleverly lobbing the ball over the head of advancing Mornington keeper Liam Little to make it 4-0. A superb long-range strike from Curtis Hutson in the 91st minute was the visitors’ sole reply. Mornington goalkeeping coach Peter Blasby has resigned. In State 3 South-East news Skye United won 4-0 at home to South Yarra in the race for second spot in the league. Referee Stefano Di Giovanni decided to play on a water-logged pitch and when Jack Gallagher was brought down inside the box in the 7th minute Caleb Nicholes converted from the spot. In the 43rd minute a Daniel Walsh volley following Jason Nowakowksi’s corner gave the home side a two-goal cushion at the break. Another pitch inspection took place before the second half started with

South Yarra adamant that the match should be called off. The referee disagreed and two minutes into the second half South Yarra’s Thomas Meredith told Di Giovanni what he thought of the decision to continue and was promptly red carded. Daniel Attard sent Nicholes through in the 56th minute and he gave Skye an unassailable lead with substitute Mitch Blake rounding off the scoreline in the 91st minute by heading home a Walsh cross. Harry McCartney reports that Seaford United’s push to avoid relegation continued on Saturday when Matt Morris-Thomas’ men defeated Bayside Argonauts 3-2 at Shipston Reserve to record their third straight win. Bayside struck first after a botched clearance from Li Nam Wang in the 29th minute. Anton Magee struck a 25-metre belter into the top left corner giving Seaford keeper Jimmy Zafiriou no chance. But Seaford hit back five minutes later when Bayside keeper Elliott Johnston parried a Dylan Waugh shot and Callum Richardson’s second spectacular overhead kick in three weeks squared the ledger. Bayside was the stronger side in the first 20 minutes of the second half having a goal chalked off for offside, hitting the crossbar twice and having a header cleared off the line. Against the run of play the visitors took the lead in the 70th minute after the tireless chasing of Matty Schwellinger was rewarded when he

won possession and his cross was met by Seaford captain Daniel Mota who side-footed home. In injury time Waugh turned on a bouncing ball and from long range struck it first time over a flat-footed Johnston to make it 3-1 but shortly after a through ball that should have been cut out by Zafiriou was won by Sam Jones who made it 3-2 making for a nervous few minutes for the visitors. In State 4 South news Baxter’s scheduled home clash with Dandenong Warriors was washed out. Meanwhile Somerville Eagles moved into second spot in State 5 South one point behind Lyndale United after Saturday’s 4-1 home win over Casey Panthers. Somerville player-coach Dave Greening opened the scoring in the 10th minute with a scorching low drive but within a minute Casey had levelled thanks to a Marcus Roberts’ free-kick that home team keeper Brad Klarenbeek would want to forget. A handball early in the second half allowed Greening to restore the Eagles’ lead from the penalty spot and within five minutes it was 4-1. A superb Damian Finnegan pass was controlled by Greening with a great first touch before he smashed his drive inside the near post then Joel Wade did well down the right before cutting the ball back to Greening who slammed in his fourth goal of another productive day for the league’s top scorer. “To be honest that could and should of been more,” Greening said. “But at this stage of the season it’s all about getting the three points, and we did that so that’s pleasing. “It was also good to ‘blood’ some of the in-form reserves late in the game to give them some senior game time to help their development.” Next weekend’s games: SATURDAY 3pm: Langwarrin v Springvale White Eagles (Lawton Park), Mornington v St Kilda (Dallas Brooks Park), Peninsula Strikers v Knox City (Centenary Park), Old Scotch v Frankston Pines (H.A. Smith Reserve), Seaford Utd v Whitehorse Utd (North Seaford Reserve), Dingley Stars v Skye Utd (Chadwick Reserve), Noble Park v Baxter (Norman Luth Reserve), Aspendale v Pakenham Utd (Jack Grut Reserve), Somerville Eagles bye.
