Fines flowing from jet-ski crackdown

A century of memories Lena Taranto has good cause to be blowing her own trumpet: she’s just turned 100. The centenarian celebrated the milestone with family and friends in Mornington last week at a get together which saw her recalling her early years in the United States. “Century of birthday wishes” Page 7

SORRENTO and Mt Martha beaches recorded the highest number of offences by jet skiers during the Water Police’s Operation Jetwash. Thirty-one offences were detected at each of those beaches in the operation which targeted unsafe behaviour over the holiday period. Twenty-five offences were detected at Rye, 24 at Martha Cove and 22 at Frankston during the six-day blitz. As the name of the operation suggests, the police’s major focus was on jet skis and their owners’ behaviour. More than 220 infringements were issued including 53 for speeding – the most common offence. This included 39 for exceeding five knots within 50 metres of another vessel. Thirteen jet-ski riders were caught without their marine licence documents and a further eight were found to have no marine licences at all. Over the six days police issued 390 infringements – 65 a day – with many handed to boaters. More than 80 involved a range of safety-related offences including the use of life jackets and maintenance and possession of safety equipment, such as fire extinguishers, torches and flares. Seven kayakers were fined for life jacket-related offences and four swimmers were fined – including two for swimming within 50 metres of a boat launching ramp at Frankston. “Water Police conducted about 700 vessel inspections during Operation

Jetwash and it was alarming that over half resulted in infringement notices being issued,” Senior Sergeant Alistair Nisbet said. “What these results show is that all water users need to lift their game when it comes to safety. “This operation targeted jet-ski use and behaviour and, in too many cases, riders failed their safety tests. “The number of offences for speeding and operating too close to other vessels is of a real concern. Jet-skis are not toys. They’re large, heavy, fast-moving machines and the results of a collision, be it with a swimmer or another vessel, can be catastrophic. “Jet-ski users need to know the rules of the water and adhere to them or, as this operation shows, police will catch up with you. “It’s also a concern that life jacket and safety equipment-related offences were detected across all watercraft.” Stephen Taylor

Building plans slammed as residents assess the meaning of ‘special’ Stephen Taylor steve@mpnews.com.au A DEVELOPER’S bid to build 10 apartments on a 1003 square metre block in Mornington comes as Mornington Peninsula Shire holds a series of public meetings aimed at guiding future development across residential areas and reinforcing what makes areas “special”. The proposed apartments, in Williams Road, have been knocked back by the shire as an “overdevelopment of the site and out of character for the area”, prompting developer Kencole to appeal to the Victorian Civil Administrative Tribunal. The outcome of the appeal could be seen as a test case on how far developers will be able to go on the peninsula as state planning minister Richard Wynne considers including the shire’s housing and settlement strategy in the shire’s planning scheme. Public meetings at Mornington, Mt Eliza, Dromana, Rosebud, Rye, Blairgowrie and Sorrento last week, aimed to “determine neighbourhood character values within the shire and whether they require protection or enhancement”. The feedback will help the shire establish guidelines to “help ensure new buildings respect our established townships, settlements and natural en-

vironment”. Residents are being encouraged to “get involved in this conversation and provide your thoughts”. The mayor Cr David Gill said the council was “working with the community to identify what they love about our streets and towns, to keep what makes them special”. “We can achieve this by recognis-

ing that future development needs to respect the established character of our settlements,” he said. Meanwhile, a shire planning report has slammed the two-storey Williams Road apartment proposal – which includes 16 underground parking spaces – as being “clearly at odds with the established neighbourhood character”. It states a preferred development on the

corner block would have only three apartments – seven less than proposed. The shire’s executive manager planning services David Bergin said the council had adopted a density control of one dwelling to 300 square metres in the area. “We also consider the neighbourhood character and the type of built form that is consistent within a particu-

lar street or neighbourhood,” he said. “Development proposals like [17 Williams Road] are also assessed against the localised planning statement which seeks at most [to have] moderate and generally low levels of housing growth in our towns and villages.” Mr Bergin confirmed council would defend its decision to refuse the permit at VCAT. Protester Allen Pennell, who lives next door, said: “If this gets through it will ruin Mornington. It’s not even on a made road.” Consultants for the development Ratio Consultants, of Cremorne, were contacted for comment. The first round of the shire’s public consultations on protecting the values and character of our townships will run until Sunday 17 February. Additional opportunities to provide comments and suggestions on the study and draft guidelines will be offered in the coming months, the shire says. Residents’ submissions can be emailed to: haveyoursay@mornpen. vic.gov.au with the subject line Mornington Peninsula Neighbourhood Character Study and Guidelines, or post to Planning Services Re: Mornington Peninsula Neighbourhood Character Study and Guidelines, Private Bag 1000, Rosebud, Victoria, 3939.

Reimagining a compassionate country SOCIAL researcher Hugh Mackay wants a "radical culture shift" in Australia towards compassion to minimise the damaging consequences of social isolation, renowned social researcher. In his 2019 Australia Day Address Mr Mackay said looking after our neighbours was a good starting point. The Officer of the Order of Australia recipient says the biggest social challenge the nation faces is "preserving our social cohesion", as we focus on ourselves rather than showing greater responsiveness to those around us. Mr Mackay will be in Mornington this week to discuss his thoughts outlined in his latest book, Australia Reimagined. "We are facing some serious threats to our social cohesion from a series of radical shifts in the way we live - none of which, incidentally, are related to immigration or to cultural diversity," Mr Mackay, 81, said in his Australia Day Address in Sydney. Shrinking households, rising broken relationship rates and a reliance on information technology at the expense of human interaction are among the changes he cites as heightening the potential of social fragmentation. "We humans are, by nature, social beings - we need each other," Mr Mackay said. "You can't make sense of who you are without a social context in which you operate." He suggests starting with the basics, such as a friendly and helpful attitude towards your neighbours, being alert

Social researcher Hugh Mackay says Australia is facing serious challenges when it comes to preserving its social cohesion.

to the wellbeing of those around you particularly the elderly - and engaging with community activities. "Social virtue demands that we treat everyone kindly and respectfully - especially those we don't like and most especially those we disagree with about politics or religion, or anything else," Mr Mackay said.

He wants to see compassion grow beyond suburban neighbourhoods. This includes “serious reconciliation” between indigenous and other Australians - "perhaps via a treaty"; a focus on the "cruel and unconscionable way" we treat asylum seekers and refugees; greater concern for disadvantaged children; and an urgent

public policy focus on inequality. "It's also about institutions winning back our trust by restraining their lust for wealth or power in favour of a more sensitive engagement within the society that gives them their social license to operate," Mr Mackay said. Hugh Mackay will present his views on Australia at 7pm Thursday

14 February at St Macartans Parish Primary School, 97 Bungower Road, Mornington. Tickets $5 with proceeds going to Peninsula Voice. Bookings: trybooking.com.au/ZTYH or Farrells Bookshop, 143 Main Street, Mornington, 5975 5034.

All quiet on Labor front for Flinders Keith Platt keith@mpnews.com.au THE Labor party is yet to name its candidate for Flinders in the May federal election. Last week news broke that Tracee Hutchison would contest the seat held by Liberal Greg Hunt since 2001. But this week the Rosebud born broadcaster and journalist said she would not be a candidate. “There’s been much speculation over this past week about my reported foray into federal politics, unfortunately none of it has come from me and the story on your article [“Hunt under pressure of coup fallout” 5/2/19] about me being the Labor candidate is incor-

Birthday time: Lena Taranto celebrates her centenary with family and friends in Mornington last week. Picture: Yanni

Century of birthday wishes LENA Taranto has come a long way in a long time. The mother of three, who enjoyed a 100th birthday lunch for family and friends at a Mornington nursing home last week, was born in the town of Waltham, Massachusetts, US, on 7 February 1919. When she was just four her Italian family pulled up stakes and returned to Italy. Then, in 1927, they again set out “for a better life”, this time migrating by ship to Australia. Two more children were born in Melbourne with the family of seven

running a fruit shop in Glenferrie Road, Malvern. Money was “very tight”. While working there, Lena met the “love of her life”, Bartolo (Bob). They married in 1942 and had three children: Mary, Lawrence and Shirley. Daughter Mary last week said her parents “worked very hard” in other friends’ and family members’ shops before taking over a fish shop in Ormond. “This was a very happy time for Lena as everyone worked together employing many relatives,” Mary

said. After running the shop for some years the couple retired to the Mornington Peninsula where Bartolo enjoyed his favourite pastime of fishing and Lena “enjoyed cooking fish and chips for family and friends”. Mary said her mother “always kept busy and active and enjoyed her daily walks while she was able” during her years at Australian Unity Retirement Living Services, Booker Avenue. “She was very independent after Bob passed away in 2001.” Stephen Taylor

rect,” Ms Hutchison told The News. The article mainly dealt with the candidature of former Liberal and still MP for Chisholm Julia Banks, and her reasons for wanting to oust Mr Hunt. “While it is true I have given this [standing for Flinders] serious consideration, and been flooded with local support and encouragement to run, I won’t be contesting the ALP pre-selection for the federal seat of Flinders,” Ms Hutchison stated in an email to The News. “A long career in journalism and broadcasting also means I’ve seen the impact of these decisions on those you love the most and this is just not the right time for me, or my family, to take this on.”

Candidate calls Red Hill home JULIA Banks, an independent candidate for the seat of Flinders in the May federal election, has “had the joy of being a part of the local community with warm caring and friendly residents who have a strong sense of community”. Ms Banks and her husband Michael have owned a property at Red Hill for the past 20 years and her parents lived in Mornington for many years. Her father died in 2007 and her mother moved to Melbourne “a couple of years ago”. In contesting Flinders Ms Banks – elected MP for Chisholm in 2016

while a member of the Liberal Party, but who has since left the party and declared herself an independent - is seeking to replace her former Liberal colleague Greg Hunt, who has held the seat since 2001. An article in The News last week (“Hunt under pressure of coup fallout” 5/2/19) incorrectly stated that Ms Banks’ children attended Red Hill Consolidated School and that her parents spent the last 15 years of their lives in Mornington. Ms Banks said that “our home” in Red Hill “has been and shall remain an irreplaceable part of our lives”.

Seal draws crowd and ‘unwelcome’ attention IT may have been the calamari for breakfast or just the chance to nab a spot in the sun near the water’s edge. Whatever the impulse to come ashore, the New Zealand fur seal lying on the beach at Dromana quickly began to draw a crowd. Some sat on the seawall to get a view of the seal, which obligingly lolled about, waving its flippers in the air. But it was the woman out for a swim that caused the most concern for volunteer seal monitor James Clemens. Not content with swimming past, the woman came ashore and tried to shoo the seal back into the water. Mr Clemens called out to her, warning that seals can bite if threatened. Undeterred, the woman waved her arms around a bit more before giving up and returning to the sea herself. Minutes later more volunteers arrived with posts and tapes to rope off an area for the seal. Mr Clemens is often first on the scene when a seal is reported as coming ashore and usually must explain the laws about not approaching too close to resting seals. Saturday’s incident was just more of the same. The Department of Environment Lands Water and Planning says seals often raise their flippers to keep cool. “People sometimes mistake this as a seal in distress. Seals holding flippers in the air should be left alone,” the DELWP states on its website. “Seals see us as predators, and they may hurt themselves or their young trying to flee. Seals will be on land for a reason, such as to rest or molt.” It also provides the following “rules”: Do not approach within 30 metres of a seal on land, whether you are also on land or in the water. Dogs are not permitted within 50 metres of a seal on land. Do not approach within five metres of a seal on a boat ramp, pier or other man-made structure. Dogs must not enter the water within 150 metres of a dolphin, 300 metres of a whale or 50 metres of a seal. It is illegal to touch or feed a seal. Call DELWP on 136 186 or Wildlife Victoria on 1300 094 535 for any seals that appear to need help. Words and pictures Keith Platt

The pause that refreshes for a possum IT was midday on Friday 1 February when Graham Burrowes spotted a small possum lying in the full sun in the grass at Rosebud Country Club. The temperature was hovering in the mid-30s. The ailing possum showed no sign of fear when Mr Burrowes offered it a drink from his water bottle. “There’s no water on the course and the possum showed no sign of stopping drinking, so we left him with a small sand bucket full of water,” he said. Mr Burrowes said he had seen possums dead on the ground during other hot days. “It was a life or death situation and he made no effort to avoid us,” he said. “But I guess we might take a drink from a giant if it was a matter of life or death.”

Sign a testimony to family life at Gunners DURING the holidays, 85-year-old grandmother Joy Gray (nee Bird) and her family visited Point Nepean National Park, Portsea. Ms Gray said told park rangers that she had some recollection of a personal history in the area, but did not know much much more than that she had being born in Gunners Cottage. In 1933, Ms Gray’s father Ernest William Bird was the army cook for Fort Nepean. He lived in Gun-

ners Cottage with his wife Victoria Blanche Bird and five children – Ray, Jack, Alan, Teddy and Joy. The family’s relationship to Point Nepean is now assured with references to the Bird family on a sign at the Gunners Cottage. The cottage is one of dozens of buildings that form a living history of the area. The building was relocated at some stage from its original position south of Eagles Nest where it

formed part of the defence complex. The cottage is used as a “satellite information point” informing visitors how Point Nepean has been used as migration centre, an army base of operations and national park. Built in the 1870s, the cottage can be a starting point for walks or bicycle rides to the park’s forts and range area. Visitors can also catch the Point Nepean shuttle bus from near the cottage.

Cash-strapped festival says ‘no thanks’ to AGL Stephen Taylor steve@mpnews.com.au ORGANISERS of the 50th Western Port Festival at Hastings say they have knocked back potential sponsorship from AGL despite being short of money and “up in the air” over grants promised by Mornington Peninsula Shire Council. The festival committee has launched a online campaign to raise money from the public. “A unanimous vote [of the committee] was passed to not accept any AGL money,” event manager Yvens Ferraz De Camargo said, citing community concerns over the power provider’s plans to moor a floating gas import and processing terminal at Crib Point. Feelings are running high at Western Port over concerns the project poses health and safety risks to people and the bay’s environment. Mr De Camargo said AGL’s potential involvement had “touched a nerve with festival committee members”. “[Rejecting a possible AGL offer] was a no-brainer,” he said. “After three committee meetings and despite being desperately in need of funds we voted to refuse. It wasn’t a hard decision. “The festival has survived for 49 years and, if we have to scale back with promotion, printing and even some of the free activities we will, but we will not engage AGL for sponsorship. “We are hoping the community will stand behind us on our decision with AGL and support us.”

Thumbs down: Western Port Festival organiser Yvens Ferraz De Camargo, centre, said an offer of sponsorship from AGL has been rejected. Here he is flanked by festival committee members Victoria Coen and Frank Navis. Picture: Yanni

Many other sporting organisations and community groups on the peninsula have accepted money from AGL. AGL spokesperson Mike Duffy said the company made an initial approach regarding sponsorship but “didn’t hear back” from festival organisers. The theme of the festival to run on

22, 23 and 24 February is: “Harbour of Friendships; celebrating Arts, Music and Multicultural Diversity”. Mr De Camargo said the events team, anticipating the need for extra fencing, security, and portable toilets this year, had decided to target more local businesses for sponsorships. “An $80

entry level sponsorship for local businesses, groups, schools and individuals will put their names or message on the crowd control fencing,” he said. Other money comes from stallholders and through the shire’s triennial grant of $18,975 which ends this year. “We cannot double [the number of]

stalls to raise the required funds as they all need to turn a profit, so we are in need of funds,” Mr De Camargo said. “Our patron Hastings MP Neale Burgess and Cr Kate Roper are also working very hard to make 50th festival memorable. “The festival is going ahead and our main drive is to maintain a safe and affordable event with as many free activities as possible. We also encourage those attending to bring a blanket and picnic.” Free activities include a sand sculpture park, supervised sand pit, sand sculpting workshop, petting zoo, pony rides and “Kids corner”. Mr De Camargo was encouraged early Thursday by an email from the shire requesting more information on the festival which raising his hopes of a possible release of a further $41,025 in funding. “It might happen,” he said. More sponsorship for the not-forprofit event is urgently needed. “Generous donations of any kind will be truly appreciated as we will be supporting local groups, organisations and the local homeless of our community,” Mr De Camargo said.

Libs’ cop candidate charged UNSUCCESSFUL Liberal Party candidate for Frankston Michael Lamb , left, has been suspended from his position with Victoria Police after being charged with disclosing police information without reasonable excuse. Mr Lamb has been suspended with pay, and will face charges over four separate incidents that allegedly occurred in 2018. A Victoria Police statement stated that “a police officer has been charged with unauthorised release of information by Professional Standards Command. “The Senior Sergeant from Southern Metro region has been charged with four counts of disclosing police information without reasonable excuse.” Mr Lamb was comfortably defeated at the 24 November state election by sitting member, Labor’s Paul Edbrooke. The Victoria Police statement said that the charged policeman is set to face the Frankston Magistrates’ Court in June.

A CAPEL Sound man arrested near the scene of a burglary in Mt Martha last week allegedly had several sets of keys and garage remote-control devices in his possession. The 28-year-old was picked up by a divisional van in Barristers Lane and interviewed over a series of break-ins involving cars and houses in the Mt Martha and Capel Sound areas. He was charged with two counts of aggravated burglary, two of burglary, two of theft from cars, one of possessing the proceeds of crime and one count of possessing a drug of dependence. The man has been remanded to appear at Frankston Magistrates’ Court this week. Detective Sergeant Jason Hocking, of Somerville CIU, said thieves were taking advantage of people leaving valuables and keys in their unlocked cars.

ery, of Somerville CIU, said youths taped the sparklers to aerosol cans and lit them in a playground in Tallis Drive, 11pm, Tuesday 5 February and 6.30pm, Wednesday 6 February. The resulting explosions scorched timber edging and a tree in the park, opposite Mornington Secondary College, on days of moderate fire danger. There is no CCTV footage but youths were seen in the area. “It is a bit concerning that the explosives were set off two days in a row in bushfire weather,” Detective Montgomery said.

Support for card trial DUNKLEY MP Chris Crewther has said he would be “happy to support” a trial of a cashless welfare card system in Frankston. The system being trialled interstate sees 80 per cent of money from Centrelink payments received by welfare recipients placed onto a card, where it cannot be withdrawn. The money on the card also cannot be used to buy alcohol or on gambling products. The card has been trialled in four regions across Queensland, South Australia, and Western Australia. Mr Crewther said “the program helps kids get their school books and makes sure money is not used on drugs and alcohol.”

“I think this would be a good place to do a trial, I think the community would be supportive. I think all taxpayers would like to see that their money isn’t going towards drugs.” He said Frankston would make a good location for a trial due to it having “one of the highest levels of welfare, much like Blacktown in NSW and other discussed trail locations.” Frankston was touted as a potential location for a trial when the program was announced in 2016, but Mr Crewther said no minister has approached him to follow up since then. The program has stirred some controversy, with small protests taking place at some of the trial locations.

Summer bliss, but Stephen Taylor steve@mpnews.com.au SOUTHERN Peninsula Rescue Squad members are being run off their feet by the number of calls for help. From Christmas through to the end of January, the squad has answered 42 rescue calls involving 150 people on the water. The areas covered have ranged from Martha Cove to Dromana, Rosebud, Rye, Blairgowrie, Sorrento, Portsea, Queenscliff, St Leonards and even out into Bass Strait. Types of craft in trouble have included motor boats, yachts, jet skis and kayaks, as well as snorkelers and divers. Problems encountered were flat batteries, running out of fuel, mechanical problems, changing weather conditions, tidal influences, and a general lack of experience. Rescue squad secretary Denis Baguley said – ironically – that pleasant boating weather over summer had prompted an increase in people going out on the water which, statistically, meant more people getting into trouble. “The weather has been fantastic and more and more people are getting out,” he said. “But that’s about 300 per cent more rescues than is normal at this time of year. And fortunately none have involved injury.” A general lack of experience around boats and lax maintenance standards has meant many boats are proving unseaworthy. “All the boaties need is a licence yet, once they are on the water, they often find they are unfamiliar with the tides, changes to the weather and proper maintenance practices,” Mr Baguley said. Older boaties are often at risk because of general health problems – as shown when an Echuca man suffered a heart attack after his boat overturned off Blairgowrie last month. Young jet-ski riders often demonstrate poor behaviour, such as not observing the 5kph speed limit near

swimmers, and having three or even four friends aboard a jet ski designed for two. Southern Peninsula Rescue Squad was established in 1967 following the disappearance of then Prime Minister Harold Holt at Cheviot Beach, Portsea. “It was resolved at that time that a community based rescue capability was necessary to respond to future marine incidents on the southern Mornington Peninsula,” Mr Baguley said.

Unwelcome visitors: Somerville Secondary College was spray painted by vandals during the school holidays. Picture: Supplied

Former student’s leading role in school graffiti POLICE have released images of graffiti “tags” at Somerville Secondary College in the hope they can help identify those responsible. The vandals roamed the school grounds over the summer school holidays and spray painted most buildings. Principal Chris Lloyd said the school’s buildings were defaced regularly. “It is a constant problem here and at the primary school, especially on weekends,” he said. CCTV footage sent to the police had captured vision of those responsible, but Mr Lloyd said he

had not identified any current students although a “much older” former student had been recognised, he said. Clean-ups have cost the school thousands of dollars. “There’s not much we can do [to prevent it] other than fence the whole school. As we are on 10 hectares that may be difficult,” Mr Lloyd said. Anyone with information is urged to call Senior Constable Kay Allen at Hastings police 5978 1426 or Crime Stoppers 1800 333 000.

Brigades busy with weekend’s fires A SERIES of fires on the Mornington Peninsula had brigades on full alert over the weekend 2 and 3 February. Dromana CFA Captain Tim Desmond said crews were called out six times on Sunday 3 February –three times to tackle a “suspicious” grass and scrub fire at the foot of Arthurs Seat, Dromana, that had been set alight the previous day. Five CFA crews took 25 minutes to bring the original fire under control on Saturday, just after 9am. The fire below the Dromana cemetery was visible from Peninsula Link and fire crews were called to return several times on Sunday afternoon when more smoke was reported from the original blaze. Smouldering logs from a fire on the beach caused concern for fire crews at McCrae, 8am, Sunday 3 February. The fire had been lit on the Saturday but had remained alight overnight.

Crews from a CFA truck put the fire out in a few minutes on a day of total fire ban. Three Mornington CFA crews brought a grass and scrub fire under control at Curtain Reserve, near Richardson Drive, Mornington Saturday 4.50pm. A car’s engine caught fire on Peninsula Link, Dromana, late Sunday afternoon. Rosebud Senior Sergeant Kirby Tonkin said the BMW X5 station wagon suffered a mechanical failure before the engine burst into flames, 6.30pm, causing a small grass fire. Three CFA fire crews brought the fire under control at 7pm. One lane of the freeway was blocked outbound for 30 minutes causing long delays. Ambulance Victoria said no one was injured in the incident. Dromana CFA crews were called when a barbecue was seen alight at a property in Bentley Road, McCrae, 10.30am, Sunday 3 February.

Snorkeler dies

in the water just after 6pm. Police will prepare a reports on both deaths for the coroner.

THE body of a missing snorkeler was spotted by the crew of police helicopter off Mt Eliza, Sunday afternoon. Water Police and the Police Air Wing were involved in searching for the man at Daveys Bay after he was reported missing about 5pm. His body was found on the sea floor at 6pm. The man’s name and address had not been released yesterday (Monday 11 February). A week earlier, Sunday 3 February, a Frankston man drowned at Baxter Park. Police media advisor Belinda Batty said the 19-year-old failed to surface after swimming with others in a dam just after 3pm. The dam is near Moorooduc Highway in the South Frankston park bordered by FrankstonFlinders and Sages roads. Emergency services crews searched the area for several hours before finding the man’s body

Boat trip to explore, protect wetlands MORNINGTON Peninsula Shire marked World Wetlands Day (Saturday 2 February) with a boat trip in Western Port for “key decision makers across local government, industry, and environmental advocates”. The trip enabled the passengers to “explore one of the peninsula’s most internationally significant regions”. The Western Port Ramsar wetlands near Hastings is part of the United Nations (UNESCO) declared special biosphere reserve of the Western Port catchment and is one of only nine biospheres in Australia. The shire’s boat trip was preceded the release this week of new research showing Western Port is increasingly vulnerable to pressures from population growth, urbanisation, run-off from residential and rural land, coastal erosion and sea-level rise. The research by Melbourne water, Understanding the Western Port Environment, looks at how best to protect the bay and its significant local and international natural habitat. Melbourne Water’s Rhys Coleman says current rates of urban development in the southeast growth corridor and climate change projections mean “this is a challenging time for protecting the Western Port environment”. Those aboard the shire’s boat tour included MP for Western Victoria Andy Meddick, former Federal MP Kelvin Thompson, Frankston councillor Quinn McCormack, representatives from Esso, BlueScope Steel, Phillip Island Nature Park, Friends of French Island, Western Port Biosphere Foundation, Western Port harbourmaster, Save Western Port and Coast Care (DEWLP). Peninsula councillors Rosie Clark, Kate Roper, Julie Morris and CEO John Baker were also on board. The shire says “expert guides” spoke “passionately” about preserving the wetlands “and the flow-on impacts to native bird life, seagrasses and mangroves”.

Guided tour: The Western Port Biosphere Foundation’s Lance Lloyd and Jo McCoy presenting their “report card” while touring Western Port on World Wetlands Day. Picture: Supplied

The mayor Cr David Gill said the “common thread from all attendees was the importance and immediacy of protecting this unique biosphere reserve”. “We heard from a number of subject experts discussing a range of topics from importance of the region for migratory birds, sea grasses and mangroves to industry, fishing and tourism ventures,” he said. “The key theme expressed throughout the day was sound management and protection of this environmentally sensitive region was essential.”

Costly roadside rubbish A rubbish dumper has been fined $3509 plus $420 costs for leaving “renovation materials” on a roadside at Tootgarook. Mornington Peninsula Shire says the fine levied by Dromana Court backs its “zero-tolerance approach” to illegal rubbish dumping. On 10 January, a peninsula resident was found guilty of aggravated littering, sentenced with conviction, fined $3509 and ordered to pay council’s $420 clean-up costs. The shire says the offender was “caught in the act unloading renovation materials from a trailer at a Tootgarook roadside”. Illegal dumping can incur penalties of up to $9500. “Council spends more than $700,000 at a cost to ratepayers a year cleaning up the mess left behind by illegally dumped waste and the shire has collected 1466 cases of illegal dumping in the past six months,” the mayor Cr David Gill said. “Most of this dumped waste could have been disposed of for free at the shire’s resource recovery centres in Tyabb, Mornington and Rye.” Cr Gill said dumped waste “poses a serious threat to our wildlife and can lead to contamination of land, waterways and groundwater”. “It’s not hard to do the right thing with a long list of items able to be disposed of for little or no cost at our resource recovery centres or use your rates vouchers to book a kerbside collection,” he said. Free items that can be dropped off at the centres include: household recyclables; steel goods (excluding fridges & air conditioners); bikes; computers; televisions; paint (up to 100 litres); gas cylinders (up to nine kilograms); motor oil (up to 20 litres); fluorescent globes and tubes and batteries. A full list of disposable items is at mornpen. vic.gov.au/wasteguide Peninsula households can also book a kerbside waste collection service by calling 5950 1406. Illegal rubbish dumpers can be reported at mornpen.vic.gov.au/dobinadumper or by calling 1300 850 600 or 5950 1000

Amazed at publicity for former Liberal Banks I was amazed to see the full front page article with a large lovely photo of Julie Banks, front and centre, heading up your paper this week (“Hunt under pressure of coup fallout” The News 5/2/19). Together with her story favourably reproduced in this article, this was a great endorsement of her, so it seemed to me. Great publicity for Julia. While I do not agree with the [August 2018] prime ministerial coup at all, why was it not mentioned that Julia has used the Liberal Party backing, then abandoned them because it suited her? Also, why has it not been explained that Julia is receiving assistance from Alex Turnbull, son of Malcolm whom was overthrown. Perhaps a front page can be devoted to Health Minister and Flinders MP Greg Hunt with a nice big photo? Joe Ziino, Mt Eliza Editor: The article did mention the involvement of Alex Turnbull, the son of former prime minister Malcolm Turnbull in the bid by former Liberal MP Julia Banks to win the seat of Flinders from her former Liberal colleague, Greg Hunt. The article also stated that Ms Banks was elected in 2016 as the Liberal Party representative for Chisholm and then abandoned the party in September 2018 in the wake of the leadership coup.

Fact checking Four months out from the federal election and the letters have already started calling for the head of our local member. I would just like to remind readers of the difference between belief and opinion and actual fact. Example: John Cain writes (“Hunt should go” Letters 5/2/19): “ The way Prime Minister Scott Morrison is losing

members in his government he’ll be lucky to have enough people to fill positions by the time the May election comes round.” Great attempt at humour but, for those of us who actually take an interest in factual politics, this statement is about as true as the elves living at the bottom of the garden. Fact: There have been more Labor members announcing they will not stand at the next election than Liberal. Michael Free, Mt Martha

Unfair advantage Kaufland supermarket’s proposed move to an outer shopping centre site in Mornington should be challenged on the basis of poor planning policy that does not consider unfair competition. Unlike Aldi, which bought into the existing commercial centre, this proposition takes customers away from the strategically zoned districts and puts viability of other businesses and jobs at risk. It is another example of what the sate government should not interfere in Local planning matters on the whim of the Planning Minister [Richard Wynne]. Lastly, in a recent letter (“Kaufland benefits” Letters 8/2/19), mention was made of future profits from the Rosebud aquatic centre. Just for the financially literate, no municipal pool ever runs at a profit. Councils finance swimming pools as a service to the community and they are mainly paid for, including a large percentage of running costs, by the community. The reason the Rosebud pool wasn’t built 10 years ago was that the state government rightly wouldn’t allow it on our beach. The present [Mornington Peninsula Shire] council, with mostly new members, immediately

got on with the decision-making process and it is now being built at a suitable location. David Gill, mayor Shire of Mornington Peninsula

Powering on The carry on from Brian Mitchelson about our power supply system is becoming a bit of a joke. (“Power a hot topic” Letters 5/2/19) The reason why our power grid was almost running out of power is that the much heralded coal power in the Latrobe Valley wasn’t working again. It seems our power grid is being held to ransom by the companies that are supposed to provide a safe supply of electricity into the grid. I have to ask: is this a calculated strategy to push up power prices in our energy market, or is it complete and utter incompetence from our coal fired power station operators? If we didn’t have renewable energy available the whole state may have lost power altogether. If Mr Mitchelon would bother to check, he would find out that there is no appetite by power companies to build new coal-powered stations because they are too expensive to build to today’s standards. And his fanciful idea of building nuclear power stations in some of our deserts is so laughable that it makes one ask if he is not just a deluded flat earth follower. To even vaguely entertain such an idea one would have to bring huge amounts of cooling water to such an installation, in the driest country in the world besides Antarctica, and build huge power line connections there. Does Mr Mitchelson really believe any of our power companies would invest money in such a hair-brained scheme? I can only assume he is a follower of our most destructive prime minister, Tony Abbott. and his cabal of climate change deniers. Rupert Steiner, Balnarring

Climate conspiracy Here we go again, climate change deniers spouting misinformation and glibly spouting alleged facts from scientists on the payroll of the mining companies. (“Power a hot topic” Letters 5/2/19).

Gas Import Jetty and Pipeline Project Community Drop-in Sessions Saturday 23 February to Saturday 2 March 2019 Come along to learn more about our technical studies, speak to our specialists and provide feedback on the project. AGL and APA are preparing an Environment Effects Statement (EES) for the Gas Import Jetty and Pipeline Project, for examination under Victoria’s strongest environment assessment process. Over the last few months we’ve begun 18 technical studies as part of our work for the EES. We want to share our work so far and get your feedback on our technical studies. We’ll have specialists available to answer your questions about key study areas, such as marine and terrestrial biodiversity, Aboriginal heritage, traffic and noise. Representatives from AGL and APA will let you know how you can provide input and stay informed about the Project. Your input is an important part of the EES process. Community feedback will help inform the project design and our ongoing studies as we prepare the EES throughout the first half of 2019.

During the heatwave on 25 January, two power stations were offline for maintenance. So yes, there was rationing of power, but why was it decided that they needed to close down for the maintenance when the station owners would have known that a series of very hot days were coming? Hmmm, very suspicious. The child-like creatures mentioned in the letter are those members of parliament in Canberra who refuse to recognise the facts that the reef is dying, small islands in the Pacific are being inundated, the ice caps are melting, we have floods at the top end of Australia and fires at the other end and, let’s not forget the Murray/Darling catastrophe. And that’s just here at home. At the moment, we have a real doozie of an environment minister who has these so-called experts whispering into her shell-like ear, all manner of misinformation. Remember, when the so-called scientists in the thrall of the tobacco companies kept telling us that smoking was good for us? Ha. John Cain, McCrae

Path reimbursement Erica Bryan welcomes the construction of the Coppin Road, Sorrento footpath (On the right path” Letters 5/2/2019). I assume she will therefore cheerfully reimburse my wife and I the $450 a metre that the Mornington Peninnsula Shire Council propose to charge us for the footpath outside our house. Bill Holmes, Sorrento

One bin fits all A friend and myself witnessed workers from the contracted garbage collection service wheel all the waste collection bins to the truck into which they were all emptied. This is despite all the bins being clearly marked with coloured lids and signage denoting what each bin contained. Is this a cost saving municipal sanctioned action or is corporate profit the motive? Mornington Peninsula Shire should explain what really happens to our collected and separated rubbish. Andrea Gowers, Merricks Beach

100 YEARS AGO THIS WEEK...

John Ward still in hospital after being thrown from vehicle Compiled by Brodie Cowburn WHILE returning from the funeral of his father at Hastings, last month, Mr John Ward was thrown from his vehicle and sustained a compound fracture of the leg. From enquiries made a few days ago it was ascertained that Mr Ward was still in the Melbourne hospital, and was progressing as well as could be expected considering the serious nature of his injuries. *** AT the last meeting of the Frankston and Hastings shire council, Constables Revell and Walker were appointed presenting officers. *** THE Shire Council has been notified that the following soldiers are returning from abroad: Private Jack Twyford by the Bakars on the 3rd inst; Artificer F. E. Shepherd, due to arrive by the Osterley on the 21st February; Driver E. W. Monro, date not stated; Private Thomas Nicholas, by the Karmala date not stated. *** LAST Friday night the hon. secretary (Mr J. T. McMurtrie) and his committee conducted the drawing for the pony raffled in connection with the recent gymkhana demonstration. The winner proved to be Mr Montgomery of Temple Court, Melbourne, with ticket No, 1191. *** ON Saturday Messrs Murray, Jones and party, of Collins Street, Melbourne, fishing at Tooradin, got a nice lot of schnapper, filling an 80-lb. fish box. A shark proved troublesome, and the fishermen baited a shark line with a 2-lb live schnapper, which was soon taken by the shark.

On being hauled to the surface it was despatched with a bullet. The shark was found to contain five schnapper, from 2lb to 6lb each. It was 10 feet in length. *** “THE Gum Leaf,” synonymous for all that is fresh, bright and invigorating, is the appropriate appellation given the view tea rooms, opened last Wednesday in Frankston House buildings, Bay Street, by Misses Somer and Gullett. No expense has been spared by the ladies in question, in fitting out their premises in an up-to-date and pleasing manner and they have every confidence in inviting a share of public patronage. They direct attention to their business announcement appearing in another column. *** IT is intended by the various Red Cross branches throughout Australia to make a presentation to Lady Stanley, the popular president of the Society in Victoria. Each branch is limited to a donation of £1. Frankston’s quota is now being collected and anyone anxious to subscribe may leave their subscriptions with Mrs Deane or with the Joint-Secretaries, Mesdames Dial and Utber. *** WE are given to understand that cases considered to have been influenza have been removed from St. Pancras private hospital, Frankston, and the institution is now considered free. Nurse Campbell has had the place thoroughly fumigated and her efforts in this direction have met with the approval of the Medical Officer of Health. As there is now no danger of infection the Council will probably take steps to

lift the quarantine at once. Quite an exaggerate idea exist in the minds of some people as to the danger arising from places considered to be infected. Cases have been known where tradesmen have refused to deliver goods even in the back yards of suspected houses. We have it on the authority of Dr. Griffith that such extreme caution is quite unnecessary. Outside the walls there is safety provided of course there, no contact with inmates takes place. *** THE Shire President, (Cr Murray) at the Council luncheon on Thursday, the 6th. inst. took the opportunity of referring to the departure of Mr and Mrs Coop, who during their residence at Somerville took such an important and useful part in the affairs of the district generally. The Council luncheon is usually restricted to Councillors and shire officers, but on the occasion under notice, Mr Coop sat on the right hand of the president. Messrs Shepherd, S. S. Gault, Revell and Walker were also present. Cr. Murray said that as this would be the last occasion Councillors would have the pleasure of partaking of the hospitality of Host Coop, he desired to express appreciation of the manor in which Mr and Mrs Coop had catered for the Council during the past six years. (Hear, Hear). No trouble or expense had been spared in providing a good table and supplying everything of the best. In fact it was always a pleasure to Councillors when lunch time came round. (Laughter). The experience of the Council had been the experience of patrons of the Hotel Somerville generally.

The people had been very fortunate in having a man like Mr Coop in the midst, and now that he was leaving he took with him, not only the good wishes of the Council, but the genuine respect of the public as well. It was a matter for regret that the residents of Somerville were unable, owing to restrictions imposed in connection with the prevailing influenza empedemic to tender Mr and. Mrs Coop a citizen’s farewell. They had made numerous friends during their residence in Somerville, and their departure was keenly regretted. Mr Coop had recognised his responsibilities as a citizen and what was more to the point, he had always observed his responsibilities. (Hear, hear). During the four-years of war Mr Coop had given generously both in cash and in kind, and the district possessed no more willing workers than Mr and Mrs Coop. They realised their duty, and did it. Many people realised they had a duty to do, but failed to perform it. Mr and Mrs Coop were greatly respected and deservedly so. In wishing them “Good Bye” he also wished them every sort of Good Luck. (Hear, hear). Cr. Oates said it gave him great pleasure to endorse the remarks of President. He knew Mr and Mrs Coop were fine patriotic workers and leading spirits in all public movements. From the Council’s point of view, Mr and Mrs Coop had always given entire satisfaction. Their catering had always been excellent. Mr G. Shepherd, speaking on behalf of the public expressed thanks for the

opportunity offered of testifying to the high esteem in which Mr Coop is held by the residents of Somerville. The speaker had known Mr Coop’s family for 30 years past. Mr and Mrs Coop senr. were highly estimable people, and it was high praise to say of the son that he was a “chip off the old block”. (Hear hear). Continuing, Mr Shepherd said that Mr Coop had proved a useful and patriotic resident of Somerville. If help was needed for any movement promoted for the public good Mr Coop was the man to whom to apply. Both Mr and Mrs Coop had done a lot of work unostentatiously and their services were always given cheerfully and ungrudgingly. Speaking as a temperance man (although not a total abstainer) he, Mr Shepherd, regarded Mr Coop as an ideal hotel Keeper, and he only hoped that the district would got someone else as good, in his place. (Hear, hear). Cr. Turner, having known Mr and Mrs Coop during the last six years, had great pleasure in endorsing the remarks of previous speakers. Constable Revell said he knew of no better country house than the Hotel Somerville as conducted by Mr Coop. He always upheld the police and gave every assistance in seeing that the law was carried out. Constable Walker gave similar testimony. Mr Coop policed his own house, and action by the police was not necessary. The toast of Mr and Mrs Coop was then given, and drunk with musical honors. *** From the pages of the Mornington Standard, 15 February 1919

THE MEANING OF EXISTENCE... AND OTHER SHORT STORIES

The Ghost of Christmas Past Has A Dirty Big Mullet By Stuart McCullough IT was my sister who called first. Actually, it wasn’t so much as a call as it was a text with emojis to emphasize the emotional gravity of the moment. Old-school telephone calls, it seems, are now reserved only for those rare circumstances where an emoji is somehow not fit for purpose. The general gist of the message was this: my sister had been minding her own business with the television on the background when she had seen my brother and I on screen. It happens every Christmas. We were just kids. This fact is reinforced by the fact we’re both wearing school uniforms. We were part of a school choir that, for reasons that will forever remain a mystery, was asked to sing on a cover version of the John Lennon and Yoko Ono holiday classic, ‘Merry Xmas (War is Over)’. The original was released in 1972 and was an impassioned plea for peace, subsequently becoming a bona fide Christmas standard. The cover version was recorded in 1985 and performed with such soul-quivering intensity that it surpassed the original. Except that instead of being an appeal for peace and end of conflict and bloodshed, this was an impassioned plea on behalf of fairy penguins. Britain had its ‘Bandaid’, America its ‘USA for Africa’. Australia had ‘The Incredible Penguins’. This was a ‘supergroup’, in much the same that way that any one of us can be a superhero if we manage to reverse park in one go or remember that it’s bin night before your spouse does. Brian from

Pseudo Echo, Scott from Kids in the Kitchen, Colin from Men at Work, the bloke from Geisha who went on to sing the theme song for ‘The Footy Show’ (and, with any luck,

gets a residual); to say nothing of Brian Mannix of the Uncanny X-men. (Trust me, it’s better that way.) They even roped in Angry Anderson and a pre-return to fame John Farnham.

1985 was an interesting time in music history. If I were to sum it up in a word, that word would be ‘mullet’. In what must have seemed an affront to barbers everywhere, luxurious locks cascaded well beyond the shoulders. The bigger the mullet, the better. At that time it was common for men and women in rock to have the exact same haircut. I cannot overemphasize the enormity of the impression it made on me. On the day of recording, there were more mullets in that room than the Murray / Darling basin. The most special of all the special guests to sing that day was undoubtedly Bob Geldolf. This was the very same Bob Geldolf who, at that point, was eligible for sainthood, having raising millions of dollars for the starving in Ethiopia through the ‘Do They Know It’s Christmas’ single and the gigantic global event that was ‘Live Aid’. Why wouldn’t he want to use his particular brand of magic to come to the aid of fairy penguins? In the film clip, Bob is clearly disoriented; something I attribute to either jetlag or the last remnants of the chloroform that must have been necessary to abduct him and drag him to the studio. With the obvious exception of Angry Anderson, those in our choir were the only mullet-free people within a two-kilometre radius. Our job was to stand in formation and look suitably angelic. The single was being produced by Molly Meldrum who – I was later to learn – had a reputation as being a genius behind the mixing board. Molly produced ‘The Real Thing’ by Russell Morris;

a song so extraordinary that it sounds like the apocalypse. I just knew him as the bloke from Countdown. All I remember of Molly is that he was not very tall and oozed cigarette smoke. All those assembled poured everything into making the best version of ‘Happy Xmas (War is Over)’ they possibly could. When the single was released, I watched the film clip with breathless anticipation. I saw myself for a couple of seconds. My brother too. The film clip showed all the various celebrities before cutting to footage of tanks, explosions and general mayhem. I struggled to understand what fairy penguins had to do with either war or, for that matter, Christmas. Whether they were the victim of some kind of sea otter insurgency or in conflict with Sponge Bob Squarepants was not explained to us. It was difficult to reconcile the images of destruction with a small aquatic, flightless bird. It was disturbing and unpleasant. And just like that, the song peaked in the charts before plummeting faster than a concrete parachute into oblivion. That, so I thought, was that. Nothing disappears anymore. Not even bad ideas. They live on the Internet to be found by friends, foes and future employers alike. ‘Happy Xmas (War Is Over)’ is on YouTube and played annually on Rage the Saturday before Christmas. Each year I see my schoolboy self, singing his heart out. Within two years, I had my own band and a mullet of my own. As for the fairy penguins, they now live in peace. Thank goodness. stuart@stuartmccullough.com

Long Island put Main Ridge to the sword By Brodie Cowburn

of the season and posting figures of 7/33 of 24 overs.

A RUTHLESS performance by Long Island has seen them dismiss Main Ridge for just 70 runs in the first day of their two day clash. Main Ridge’s openers combined for just 12 runs, and their top scorer put only 16 runs on the board. After 46 overs, Main Ridge were dismissed and were left with a lot of work to do with ball in hand. Long Island came in to bat and finished at 4/97 at stumps, ensuring a first innings win. Pubudu Edirisinghe top scored for the day with 41 runs. At Eric Bell Reserve, Pines played well as a team to set Red Hill a daunting target to chase down. A final wicket partnership of 41 runs was especially helpful to the Pines, as they finished up the day on 233 runs. Damien Lawrence passed his half century. Overport Park played host to Baden Powell and Crib Point, with Crib Point being sent in to bat first. They struggled at times and ended up all out for 119 with 10 overs left to play for the day. Taylor Harrison was Baden Powell’s best, putting on his best performance

ROSEBUD have performed well to bat out the afternoon against Seaford at Kananook Reserve. Jason Mathers was top scorer for Rosebud, scoring his highest total for the season with 51 runs batting at number 7. They finished up at 8/213 at stumps, in a good position but having not scored at a quick enough rate to really punish their opposition. At Ferrero Reserve, a good middle order stand has put Carrum in a decent position against Mt Martha. Wylliam Stanway scored 66 runs, but his top order teammates and the tail both collapsed. Carrum ended up all out for 182 runs. Mt Martha came in to bat 11 overs before the close of play, and will restart next week at 2/20. Hastings played host to Delacombe Park on Saturday, won the toss, and chose to bat first. They did well to bat out the afternoon, finishing at 8/209 at stumps. Malith Chathuranga passed 50 runs for the third time this season, scoring

Mornington News 12 February 2019

66 not out batting at number 7. Heatherhill set Seaford Tigers a target of 170 to chase down at Bruce Park. Jye Thornell helped restrict Heatherhill to a tame total, posting his best ever bowling figures for the Tigers with 6/33. The Tigers will restart day two at 1/10.

SUB DISTRICT

DROMANA fared well in their two day clash on Saturday, as they travelled to Boneo and elected to bat first. Dromana were struggling badly at 4/24, until Kierran Voelkl came in at number 4 and saved the day. He scored a well earned century, ending up not out for 116. Ben Bailey-Bridge also played an entertaining innings, hitting 10 boundaries and 2 sixes on his way to an innings of 74. Their side finished at 7/236 at stumps. Frankston YCW also played will at home on Saturday to set Tootgarook a target of 250. Carrum Downs have fancied their chances of getting a good result against Rye, choosing to declare after

61 overs. Two Carrum Downs batsmen passed their half centuries as they finished up at 8/164 before sending Rye in to bat. Ryan Lynch scored his third consecutive score of over 50, this time being stumped before he could convert it into his first ton. Rye got off to a poor start with bat in hand, and will have to fight their way back from 2/18 to get a win. Balnarring’s middle order played well against Tyabb, as they posted a total of 184 off 78 overs. Skye had a bye.

PROVINCIAL

MORNINGTON have played dominant cricket against Baxter, setting an absolutely mammoth total of 353 runs for their opponents to chase down. First drop batsman Ben Clements was in unbelievable form, scoring 156 runs, his best ever total for Mornington. He has now passed 50 runs in 10 matches this season, and gone on to score a century in 3. He hit 19 boundaries. Baxter will have a lot of work to do to secure any sort of result on day two. Mt Eliza played host to Sorrento on Saturday, choosing to bat first and

struggling. Outside of middle order batsman Tim Strickland, few Mt Eliza players made much impact. They ended up all out for 118 off 58 overs. In response, Sorrento started well and had gone 31 runs without loss of wicket, before things started to unravel. Sorrento finished the day at 5/59 off their 21 overs, setting things up for a close finish. Peninsula OB put together a decent first innings against Flinders, as they put 189 runs on the board before being bowled out. Matthew Burns was pick of the bowlers for Flinders, taking 7 wickets for 64 runs. In reply Flinders lost an opener for a duck, and will restart day two from 1/2. Pearcedale struggled badly against Langwarrin, only scoring 79 runs before they were left all out. They lost their final wicket in only the 48th over. In reply, Langwarrin secured a first innings win. They were at 4/100 at stumps.

Langy faces City’s young stars SOCCER

By Craig MacKenzie LANGWARRIN kicks off the most anticipated season in the club’s recent history when it hosts Melbourne City at Lawton Park on Saturday at 3pm. The spotlight has shone on the local club ever since it made the surprise announcement last August that Scott Miller had been appointed head coach. Few expected the former Fulham assistant manager and Newcastle Jets boss to step down from professional to semi-professional ranks but his appointment raised the bar markedly in terms of expectations for the 2019 season. Langy has backed Miller with a host of new signings and the establishment of the club’s first high-performance unit. The philanthropy of former player Greg Kilner has played a pivotal role in assembling the most expensive squad in the club’s history highlighted by the signing of midfield general Wayne Wallace, who has played at Victorian Premier League or NPL level in every season since 2011. While the guile and craft of Roddy Covarrubias, David Stirton, Damir Stoilovic, Johnny Kuol and Jordan Templin provide Miller with plenty of attacking options Langy has only won one of its pre-season matches, going down 3-2 to Beaumaris, 4-1 to Oakleigh Cannons and 4-0 to Brunswick City. Last week it had to come from 2-0 down to eventually get on top of State 1 newcomer Doveton in a 3-2 win at Lawton Park. Questions were asked of the home side’s defensive capabilities after goals from ex-Langy players Shane Tagliaferro and Wayne Gordon had the Doves looking good but two David Stirton goals squared up proceedings and John Kuol’s close-range strike in the second half rounded off the scoreline. Miller has been impressed with his players’ approach to their pre-season preparation and during the Doveton clash there were glimpses of the uptempo interpassing style he wants to implement. “Overall I think our training has been great. The focus of the players has been brilliant and we are looking forward to this,” he said. “I think it’s a great time to play them (Melbourne City) as playing a strong team first can be used as a benchmark for where we are at. “What we are really trying to do is to reset attitudes from what the players have been exposed to as juniors and young adults and trying to get them playing a more purposeful game with

variety. “We want to play to our strength and that is to keep the ball moving quickly in the attacking half.” Miller is straightforward about his expectations for the upcoming season. “I want the players to perform as a team first and foremost and I want them to respect the club. “I want them to play a brand of football that is not only aggressive and purposeful but entertaining and something potentially that the peninsula hasn’t seen in terms of ball control and that quality inside the final third and good combination play. “So my expectations are based around performance because I think with the foundations of a high level of performance and attitude then anything is possible.” Melbourne City is coming off a successful eight-match national youth league season. Former Socceroo Joe Palatsides is City’s head coach and is pleased with the way his squad is shaping up. “We’re pretty fit and we only missed out on playing in the (youth league) Grand Final on goal difference,” he said. “I’d say our boys are further ahead in their preparation than other NPL sides because of the youth league but now we’re up against men which is a different challenge.” In terms of emerging talent Palatsides has pieced together a remarkable squad consisting of six Young Socceroos and seven Joeys and he could have up to six players from City’s A-League squad available. “There’s lots of Joeys in the under20s squad but really all our players are under 20. “The average age of our first team

squad is around 17 or 18 years old and the under-20s’ average is around 16.” Here is the Langwarrin senior squad with the previous club of new players in brackets: Goalkeepers: Fraser Maclaren (Dandenong Thunder), Sermin Sadikovski (Richmond). Defenders: Luke Burgess, Boris Ovcin, Dylan Kilner, Jaiden Madafferi (Northcote), Jamie Cumming (Mornington), Alex van Heerwaarden (Peninsula Strikers). Midfielders: Alex Whyte, Wayne Wallace (Oakleigh), Thomas Ahmadzai (Warragul), Kane Bentley (Shantou Lions), Callum Goulding (Box Hill). Forwards: John Kuol, David Stirton (Dandenong City), Rodrigo Covarrubias (St Albans), Damir Stoilovic (Springvale White Eagles), Jordan Templin (Bulleen). Here is the Melbourne City senior squad with the previous club of new players in brackets: Goalkeepers: James Delianov, Majak Mawith (Melbourne Victory). Defenders: Mitch Graham, Lucas Portelli, Bradley Chick, Mark Karlic, Jordan Bos, Dylan Pierias, Dalibor Markovic, Tim Boke, Ben Pierias. Midfielders: Josh Cavallo, Nicholas Hatzigeorgiou (Melbourne Victory), Idrus Abdulahi, Luke Duzel, Connor Metcalfe, Gianluca Iannucci, Josh Varga. Forwards: Moudi Najjar, Sam Morrison, Yaya Dukuly, Stefan Colakovski, Ramy Najjarine. Continuity of player development is one of the keys to the City squad with just two new players for 2019 whereas Langwarrin has brought 13 new players into its first team squad. Langy made a play for young City defender Portelli late last year but he eventually shunned the overtures and

opted to stay put which adds an interesting sideline to an already enticing encounter. Meanwhile the second qualifying round of the 2019 FFA Cup is scheduled to kick off this weekend. Local State 5 clubs Somerville Eagles, Aspendale Stingrays and Rosebud were all involved in the draw. Somerville clashes with Barnstoneworth United on Saturday and was keen to organise a friendly between the respective reserves squads but the visitors have only recently started pre-season and player numbers were a problem. Somerville had its last major hit-out before Saturday’s cup clash when it defeated Chelsea 4-2 last weekend with Somerville’s goals coming from Damien Alejandro, Dave Greening, Mark Pagliarulo and Daniel Hodge. Rosebud hosts Yarra Jets at the unusual time of 5pm on Sunday at Olympic Park in Besgrove Street while RMIT has forfeited its scheduled home clash with Aspendale giving the local club a 3-0 walkover. In State 1 news Mornington has signed young goalkeeper Taylor Davidson from Banyule City. “I got a text from Banyule saying ‘you’ve signed a good one there’ and they’re right,” Mornington gaffer Adam Jamieson said. “He’s big, he’s commanding and he’s got a good pair of hands. We’re very happy with the signing.” In State 2 news Peninsula Strikers drew 2-2 with Collingwood City at Centenary Park on Sunday. Triallist Vladimir Kosovac, exGoulburn Valley Suns, and English import Danny Brooks scored for Strikers while Collingwood’s ace marksman Pat Makris doubled for the visitors. Michael Hoogendyk, Adam Crabb,

Grant Lane, Danny Black, Tom Hawkins and Michael Nugent were all unavailable for Strikers but most of them are expected to get game time against Mornington at Dallas Brooks Park on Thursday. Colin McCormack and Christian Morales alternated in goal and Strikers boss Danny Verdun is expected to make a call this week on his preference as his number one keeper. In State 3 news Frankston Pines lost 2-1 to East Bentleigh at Monterey Reserve on Saturday with Travis Ernsdoerfer scoring a late goal for Pines. Last Thursday Pines defeated Old Xaverians 3-1 at Monterey Reserve with Ernsdoerfer, Meron Negasi and Voldy Bukishie scoring for the local side. Skye United lost 5-1 to Endeavour United at John Paul College in Frankston on Sunday. Jason Nowakowksi scored for Skye. In State 4 news Seaford United had a 6-3 win over Aspendale Stingrays at North Seaford Reserve on Sunday spearheaded by a Conor Mcfall hattrick. Dylan Waugh (2) and Matty Schwellinger were Seaford’s other scorers while Aspendale’s goals came from Adrian Pace (2) and teenager Ben Garside. Pace’s second was a cracker, a thumping left foot strike from outside the area that was still on the rise as it hit the back of the net. Seaford gaffer Matty Morris-Thomas played in the first half and although he’s keen to play this upcoming season he is nursing a torn meniscus. Kevin Derry from Strikers played for Seaford and the club hopes to sign him this week. Cam Leopold was unavailable but remains firmly on Seaford’s radar. This weekends’ league and cup games: SATURDAY: Langwarrin v Melbourne City, Lawton Park, 3pm; Somerville Eagles v Barnstoneworth Utd, Somerville Secondary College, 3pm. SUNDAY: Rosebud v Yarra Jets, Olympic Park, 5pm. This week’s pre-season games: THURSDAY: Mornington v Peninsula Strikers, Dallas Brooks Park, 7pm. SATURDAY: Mornington v Frankston Pines, Dallas Brooks Park, 5pm & 7pm; Peninsula Strikers v South Yarra, Centenary Park, 3pm & 5pm; Skye Utd v Old Scotch, John Paul College, 11am & 1pm; Baxter v Brandon Park, Baxter Park, 1pm; Seaford Utd v Sandringham, North Seaford Reserve, 1pm and 3pm.

Final hurrah for Australian great BLAIRGOWRIE boxer Jayde Mitchell returns to the ring on Saturday 30 March for the final send-off of one of Australia’s greatest boxers. The current world number nine super-middleweight boxer, Jayde Mitchell, will line-up on the undercard of his sparring partner and former world champion, Sam Soliman, who will step into the ring for the final time. In a phenomenal career spanning more than 20 years, Sam Soliman will bow out against another former world champion, Manny Siaca, at the Melbourne Pavilion. While Mitchell’s opponent is yet to be confirmed, he said to be on the final card of one his idols, Sam Soliman, means the world to him. “I’ve become such close mates with him,” Mitchell said. “I’ve learnt so much from him and he’s an absolute legend of the sport. He did it the hard way to become

world champion. He fought absolute killers in their own backyards, beating every one of them, to become world champion – it’s one hell of a story.” Soliman has won 45 fights across several weight divisions from lightmiddleweight division to cruiserweight and has come up against some of boxing’s greatest. Soliman competed for the WBA super-middleweight title against Anthony Mundine in 2007 and defeated the multiple-time world champion Felix Sturm for the IBF middleweight title in 2014. It makes sense for one of Australia’s greatest boxers to conclude

his career against another great of the game in Siaca, who has a title victory over Anthony Mundine for the WBA world super-middleweight title in 2004. “They’re both former world champions so it’ll be a great fight to see Sammy go out on,” Mitchell said. Mitchell is hoping his fight on the undercard will be a stepping stone for another major title fight in May before aiming for a world title by the end of the year. “This’ll bring me back into the swing of things and then it’s full steam ahead for another big year,” he said.

Kiwi trainer joins Mornington’s ranks MORNINGTON has a new up-andcoming racehorse trainer in its midst with the former New Zealander Joe Waldron setting up base opposite the racecourse late last year. The former travelling foreman for champion New Zealand trainers Murray Baker and Andrew Forsman has been training in his own right in New Zealand for the past three seasons but decided to make the move in search of greater prize money. Along with the majority of his client base in New Zealand being from Australia, Waldron has embarked on his next chapter of his training career which now sees him own a 40 box barn with 14 horses currently in work. It’s been a move that Waldron has only seen as a positive.

“I’m loving it,” he said. “It’s certainly become home pretty quick. There’s no looking back that’s for sure.” Waldron has looked after some exceptional talent while working as a foreman for the Baker and Forsman combination, including the 2015 Caulfield Cup winner Mongolian Khan and 2016 Futurity Stakes winner Turn Me Loose but he’s also had some success in his own right which he hopes to bring to Victoria. Before making the move to Victoria, Waldron had trained seven winners from less than 50 starters in New Zealand and was training at a strike-rate of 15 percent. Now, he believes he can adapt to the slightly different training style in Victoria.

“You do need to train a little bit different over here,” he said. “Racing here is a lot more speed focussed so you’ve got to keep that in mind when you’re training but it’s relatively the same in some aspects. If you just have a fit, healthy and happy horse going to the races then more often than not they go well.” Waldron will have another 13 horses make their way from New Zealand on Wednesday 20 February and is hoping to have all 40 of his barn full by the spring.

Clay shooters line up at Nationals FRANKSTON Australia Clay Target Club (FACTC) shooters made their way to Brisbane for the ISSF National Trap and Skeet titles on Monday 14 January. Some of Australia’s best showcased their skills and put some stellar scores on the board in what was a full field in the Trap events as well as the introduction of the Trap Mixed Teams events. FACTC landed some top shots to return home with eight National and Commonwealth title medals across the trap and skeet competitions. Commonwealth Games gold medallist and FACTC member Laetisha

Mornington News 12 February 2019

Scanlan led the way in the Ladies Trap qualifiers shooting a score of 115/125 before going on to take the silver medal in the Commonwealth Title and the National Title. It took a remarkable score to outshoot Scanlan with the winner, Penny Smith, shooting an amazing 123/125. That score beat the current world record of 122 but unfortunately isn’t recognised as it wasn’t achieved at an official ISSF World event. Nonetheless, the score was remarkable and topped the best male’s score which recorded a 121/125. Scanlan then went on to take gold in the Trap Mixed Pairs Commonwealth Title alongside fellow Australian, James Willett. FACTC’s Keith Ferguson and James Bolding also had a successful Nationals with Ferguson taking bronze in the Skeet Commonwealth Title and gold in the Skeet National Title.

Bolding came away with a silver medal in the Commonwealth Title and bronze in the National Title. Rio Olympian Paul Adams filled out the remaining spots in the commonwealth and national titles claiming gold and silver, respectively. FACTC’s Adam Vella also made a return to competition in the Men’s Trap. Vella qualified for both of the event finals before winning bronze in the Commonwealth Title (qualifying score of 117/125) and coming fourth in the National Title (qualifying score of 117/125). Vella finished the Nationals in fifth place overall with a combined score of 234/250. The shooters results from the National titles will go towards team selection for the World Cups and World Championships as they also strive to make the Tokyo 2020 Australian team.

Saints give back with community camp AFL PLAYERS from the St. Kilda Football Club made their way down to the Sorrento Foreshore on Monday 4 February as part of their pre-season training camp. The Saints had nine players head down for a beach yoga session alongside a crowd of around 40 other participants. Run by the Re-Creation Sorrento Health Club, the daily session was attended by Saints players including: Luke Dunstan, Jack Billings, Dean Kent, Josh Bruce, Ed Phillips, Paddy McCartin, Ben Paton, Darragh Joyce and Nick Hind. As well as undertaking the silent yoga session (used silent headphones) the players also signed autographs and handed out merchandise. The

entire team also hired out the Re-Creation Sorrento Health Club as part of their camp. The Saints players also visited several schools, football clubs and hospitals across the Mornington Peninsula as part of their community camps. “It’s a great opportunity to give back for us by going into the local community and engage with kids at school and try and put a smile on their face,” St Kilda player, Ed Phillips, said. Somerville JFC, Dromana JFC, Rye JFC and Red Hill JFC were fortunate enough to also have clinics run at their clubs. A community forum for 80 local footy coaches and officials was also held as well as an open training session at Rosebud Football Club on the Tuesday morning.

Molly signs with the Saints FLINDERS Christian College student, Molly McDonald, has been given the chance to take her next big step in her football career with the St Kilda Football Club officially securing the young gun last week. The Year 12 student and captain of the Carrum Downs Flinders campus was pre-selected by the Saints from the Women’s AFL National Academy where the 17-year-old winger showed elitelevel endurance and a damaging turn of pace. McDonald, who also plays with the Dandenong Stingrays, said she was stoked to receive the offer. “I’m pretty excited about it all,” Molly said. “I’ve always wanted to make it [to the AFLW].” McDonald had also played representative basketball before focussing solely on her football career three-years ago.

It’ll now be a big year ahead for Molly as she juggles both her school commitments, having also been named captain, and her footy career where she’s also committed to playing with the Dandenong Stingrays. But, it’s a challenge her mother, Tracey, believes she’ll grab with both hands. “She’s always made sure to put school in front of everything,” Tracey said. “It’s going to be a busy but very exciting couple of years for her. She also wants to go to University next year too so it’ll all be about making it work.” “She’s very humble about the whole thing but I’m very proud of her.” McDonald becomes the second player to sign with St Kilda ahead of AFLW 2020, alongside Southern Saints midfielder Ali Brown.
