JET skis and boats have become popular ways of getting to The Pillars cliff jumping spot at Mt Martha. However, as well as dare-devil divers they are also bringing along a new set of problems. “Jet skiers warned off The Pillars” Page 7 Picture: Yanni

Decades of decisions being checked Keith Platt keith@mpnews.com.au MORNINGTON Peninsula Shire officers are “reviewing decisions” made over the past seven years involving three companies at the centre of investigations by the Independent Broadbased Anti-corruption Commission (IBAC). However, the review involving hundreds of files will be extended back

decades, if necessary, according to the mayor Cr Sam Hearn. “We want to look at everything, not just back to an arbitrary date,” he said. “Three decades is quite a lot to look into and we want enough external involvement so it doesn’t just appear to be council looking at itself.” Cr Hearn said council “intends to make [the review findings] public” but could be asked to withhold information by IBAC or the police.

The review by shire officers of any council decisions made involving Mornington-based Watsons Pty Ltd, Schutz Consulting Pty Ltd and Wolfdene Built Pty Ltd announced in December followed three weeks of hearings by IBAC which revealed hundreds of thousands of dollars in donations being made to local councillors, MPs (Labor and Liberal) and political parties; bags of cash delivered to one councillor by a former mayor and state

MP; and, the promise of a $100 million prize hanging on a minister’s stroke of a pen to allow rezoning of land. Watsons director John Woodman unsuccessfully stood for Mornington Peninsula Shire’s Briars Ward in 2012 and 2016. In the 2016 council election, Watsons donated $2489 to Briars Ward candidate, now councillor, Rosemary Clark. Cr Clark was incorrectly named by The News as deputy mayor in the 24/12/19 article “Shire probe into permits”.

Cr David Gill said on Monday he would “make sure the review of permits goes way back … the results should be made public”. “If [the results of the shire’s investigations] go to IBAC they will be public, but I don’t want to compromise the IBAC inquiry,” he said. “How do you ever get to the bottom of these things where politicians and councillors are involved?

Peninsula welcome for fire evacuees Stephen Taylor steve@mpnews.com.au MORNINGTON Peninsula Shire staff and relief agencies have continued their support for Mallacoota bushfire evacuees. They were again on hand mid-last week when HMAS Choules arrived with another 274 people and 40 pets from Mallacoota. The previous weekend they had welcomed 1060 arrivals aboard both MV Sycamore and HMAS Choules in the initial largescale first evacuation, Saturday 4 January. The ship docked at HMAS Cerberus at 6.30pm, Wednesday 8 January, where it was met by shire staff and other agencies at the Emergency Relief Centre. The mayor Cr Sam Hearn said: “We worked in collaboration with state and emergency services to ensure evacuees were reunited with their families and friends safely and quickly.” Cr Hearn thanked residents, businesses, sporting clubs and community groups for “their generous offers of support for the Mallacoota evacuations and bushfire relief”. “At this stage we’re supporting state government agencies by providing support with the Emergency Relief Centres,” he said. “The state government emergency agencies do not require additional support by way of goods or accommodation.” To ease the repatriation of the evacuees, Cr Hearn urged residents to avoid the areas around HMAS Cerberus and the Port of Hastings, as well as observe traffic management restrictions. He recommended donations be sent to the state government bushfire appeal: vic. gov.au/bushfireappeal, Red Cross, Salvation Army or Foodbank Victoria. The Red Cross is un able to receive goods.

Homeward bound: Bushfire evacuees move to their pick-up point last week after being brought ashore at HMAS Cerberus. Below, a group of Maffra residents waiting to be airlifted home from Mallacoota were instead evacuated to Crib Point on HMAS Choules. Relatives borrowed the shuttle bus from the Farmers Arms Hotel at Newry and drove to HMAS Cerberus to pick them up. Below left: Landing craft bringing evacuees ashore. Pictures: Supplied

Jet skiers warned off The Pillars JET skiers are under fire for flouting water safety rules off The Pillars, Mt Martha and putting themselves and swimmers at risk. Safety Beach Coast Guard Commander Mark Brookes said many of the 70-80 jet skiers off the popular swimming spot on Thursday 9 January were behaving like hoons by speeding close to shore and driving erratically. After asking Coast Guard crews to “take a run up and slow them down a bit” he said the jet skiers had sped off before his officers could approach them. The Coast Guard also received calls from Rye beachgoers saying jet skiers were “hooning and doing stupid things” there. Commander Brookes said: “The Coast Guard insists that for everyone’s safety jet skiers must obey the rules or risk a catastrophe. Right now, it appears many jet skiers don’t care about their own or other people’s safety.” Mornington Peninsula Shire mayor Cr Sam Hearn said the shire did not have any jurisdiction over the behaviour of jet skiers in the water. Local Laws officers armed with speed cameras could only observe jet skiers from the land and gather evidence of any misbehaviour to be passed on to the Water Police or Maritime Safety Victoria who would conduct any prosecutions, he said. Cr Hearn said he expected the shire to receive the power to prosecute errant jet skiers next year. He said the shire had done “all it can” with regard to safety, managing access and jumping off the cliffs at The Pillars. He did not think “it’s as bad there in comparison to previous years”. Last year the shire spent $200,000 on fencing to restrict access to The Pillars as well as enforcing tougher parking restrictions along the Esplanade and in nearby streets. It also banned the drinking of alcohol – but the ban was not enforced on the cliff top itself as police refused to clamber over the fence due to occupational health and safety concerns. Cr Hearn said the shire had held a public meeting before the current cliff jumping season and he was sure “residents understand the shire has done all it can and that The Pillars is a state responsibility”. Coast Guard crews have also been busy with boating assists. In Friday 10 January’s wild weather a trailer-sailor yacht with a man and woman aboard had to be towed to Martha Cove marina with centre-plate and motor problems. Stephen Taylor and Keith Platt

Surfers, volunteers off to the beach HUNDREDS of surfers and volunteers are expected at Point Leo beach on Saturday (18 January) for the first event of the year held by the Disabled Surfers Association Mornington Peninsula (DSAMP). Registration for surfers and volunteers starts from 10am near the Point Leo Surf Lifesaving Cub. The first surfers will be in the water by 11am with the event finishing at 3 pm. “You don’t have to be an experienced surfer to help, we have volunteers of all ages and backgrounds who help at our events,” DSAMP president John Bowers said. “And we have all sorts of things for our volunteers to do, from being in the water to cooking a barbecue. “At one of last year’s events we were short of people at the registration table and a very kind lady did a great job helping us out, so there Is plenty to do.” Mr Bowers said volunteers wanting to help in the water should take along bathers and a towel

“and, if they have a wetsuit, that’s great”. Wetsuits could also be provided if needed. He said the DSAMP provided barbecued food, water and drinks. Merchandise sold to raise money for the DSAMP now included a new DSAMP drink bottle. Last year’s event in January had more than 200 volunteers and 100 participants. For more details or to pre-register visit Facebook DSAMP or call John Bowers on 0409 945 064.

Probe into planning decisions Continued from Page 1 Cr Gill said the review was “a great opportunity for all councillors to see if anything should be investigated”. “I’ve been concerned for a long time about the involvement of politicians, and planning ministers in particular [in making planning decisions]. It often comes down to a decision by one person, and who knows who’s been making donations to political parties? “One member of VCAT (Victorian Civic and Administrative Tribunal) makes a decision and who questions it? That’s just the way it works. “We now need to show people that you don’t always get away with it.” The review will also look at councillors’ voting patterns and possible involvement of past shire officers Shire CEO John Baker said that due to “the extended time period” it would take “take a number of weeks before the review is complete”.

Engineers, planners and developers associated with the most prominent of three companies, Mornington-based Watsons Pty Ltd, have for decades been involved in hundreds of developments on the peninsula. IBAC has been sent information about the $650 million (a 2002 estimate by one-time developer City Pacific) Martha Cove marina and residential development at Safety Beach, which underwent several major planning changes well outside a seven-year review. Mr Baker said councillors would be given a brief report on the approach [to the review] “seeking support for a transparent and open process to be undertaken by management”. “Council may not be in a position to lawfully disclose the outcome of any review,” he said. Mr Baker said he was not aware if any shire officers had been contacted by IBAC or whether any would be called to testify at the IBAC hearings which re-start in February.

Bush fire help from Rotary and its art show Mornington Rotary Club is donating $10,000 to support bush fire relief, particularly in the East Gippsland Region. The club will also give proceeds from Mornington Art Show’s opening night silent auction this Thursday (16 January) to the same cause. Artist Rudi Jass has donated a $5000 kinetic, or wind, sculpture to the auction. Auction items donated by art show sponsors includes craft beer, wine, a charter fishing trip for four, a Donald

Bate painting, a mountain bike, rounds of golf, vehicle service vouchers, health and beauty product hampers, dinners, outings, shoes, vouchers for clothing, tyres and the cinema. The exhibition of more than 800 works will run until Australia Day, 26 January. The show attracts artists, art investors and visitors from across Victoria and is recognised as for presenting one of the largest, quality exhibitions in the state. Over the past 48years the show has

raised $1.1 million for international and Mornington community projects. Around 60 per cent of the money raised since its beginning in 1972 has been spent on a wide range of Mornington projects. Opening night tickets are available at Farrells book shop, Mornington, online at the Mornington art show website or at the door on Thursday 16 January at the Peninsula Community Theatre, corner Wilson’s Road and Nepean Highway, Mornington.

A single ember can spread bushfires as far as 40km. Burning embers from bushfires can travel up to 40km, starting new fires in seconds, destroying homes and making escape impossible. If the Fire Danger Rating is ever extreme or above, don’t hesitate. Leave early.

Pub, staff ‘shout’ fire victims GENEROUS staff and management at McDaid’s Irish Pub, Point Nepean Road, Rosebud, had raised almost $17,000 for the state’s bushfire relief fund by Friday. Keen to support the fire victims, proprietors Caroline Leslie and husband Peter had been mulling over how best to help fire victims earlier in the week. They originally planned to donate 10 per cent of their takings from Wednesday 8 January – only to ‘up’ the percentage again and again until it was decided to donate the lot. They were thrilled to learn staff also wanted to pitch in a day’s wages for the cause, too. By late last week that figure had reached $16,568 with the prospect of a thirsty weekend to add to the overall total. “Everybody’s doing something and we decided to help out, too,” said Ms Leslie, who mentioned the effort on the pub’s social media. Rosebud Ambulance crews were quick to show their support. “We were secretly wishing we would crack five figures today ... what can I say?! We cracked five figures and then some more,” she said online.

“I could not be prouder of our workers, especially those who volunteered themselves for one of the busiest days we’ve ever had! “I could not be prouder of our musicians, town, community in general – and especially our loyal regular and visiting customers today. They dug deep, ate, drank and were merry. Without them, we wouldn't have been so successful.” Ms Leslie said by 8pm Thursday $15,918.65 had been rung through the tills and $649.80 had been put in the collection bucket. “We will be transferring $16,568.45 to the official Victorian Bushfire Appeal account at the Bendigo Bank as soon as all the EFTPOS payments have cleared – probably Friday,” she said. “Every cent spent will be passed on and we are so, so grateful to all of you for donating. It was a pleasure to host and very satisfying for all involved. “It’s only a drop in the ocean compared to other big donations but I couldn’t be happier for such a small wee pub in a small town. Legendary.” Stephen Taylor

The hotel will donate all money raised through the sale of eight kegs of beer to the Victorian Bushfire Appeal. This includes two kegs every Friday in January. Patrons also have the opportunity to donate at various points at the hotel, including into a sealed, empty keg, as well as three donation boxes in the sports bar, cafe, and gaming room.

BALNARRING Bowls Club has embarked on a month long charity drive to raise money for bushfire relief. Chairman Danny Wynd said members would donate barbecue profits from each Friday night’s Barefoot Bowls as well as Bendigo Bank sponsored community days on Sunday 5 January and Saturday 25 January. “Since Friday 3 January we have raised just over $1300,” he said. “We would like to let the community know what we are doing and how they can contribute by coming to the club and having a bit of fun in the process.” The club is in Strathmore Road, Balnarring.

during a period of total fire ban. All four were released and are expected to be charged at a later date. Under the CFA Act 1958 it is an offence to light a fire during a total fire ban day without a permit. Penalties include a maximum two years jail or a large fine.

In the swim for $10,000 MORNINGTON Peninsula councillor and Frankston policewoman Julia Morris and her swimming partner Daniel Burton have so far raised $5055 of a $10,000 goal to assist in treating police PTSD and mental health disorders. The pair swam the 10 kilometres from Mornington to Frankston, Wednesday 8 January – three-times the length of their longest swim to date. Sergeant Burton and Senior Constable Morris are both keen triathletes, and have been swimming together for three years, sharing a passion for the Frankston and Mornington coastline. Their swim was inspired by Chief Commissioner Graham Ashton’s Head to Head walk. Anybody wanting to donate can visit gofundme.com/pier-to-pier-for-our-peers

Four on fire charges A DROMANA man is among four people interviewed for allegedly lighting fires during a period of total fire ban, Friday 10 January. The 37-year-old allegedly lit a fire to cook a meal in a camping area at Clydebank. Also facing charges is a 70-year-old Longford woman who allegedly lit a fire in a paddock to burn rubbish, and a 50-year-old Golden Beach man who allegedly lit a fire in a fire pit at Golden Beach. It’s alleged the man became abusive towards CFA crews when they attempted to extinguish the fire. On Saturday 4 January, a 21-year-old Narre Warren man was interviewed for lighting a fire to cook a meal at a campsite at Paradise Beach

A MT MARTHA man allegedly clocked at 124kph over the speed limit on Christmas day is expected to be charged on summons with serious driving offences. The 69-year-old was behind the wheel of a silver 2015 Ford Falcon FGX Turbo sedan allegedly detected by a speed camera at 224kph going southbound on Moorooduc Highway, between Bentons and Craigie roads, 9.20pm, Wednesday 25 December. And he isn’t the owner of the car: It’s in the name of a 31-year-old Mt Martha man who has been issued with a notice to surrender his vehicle to the impound yard for 30 days. “In a year when 18 people lost their lives on Mornington Peninsula and Frankston roads, and more particularly on a day when people are driving to/from gatherings with loved ones, this behaviour is blatant stupidity,” Senior Constable Gregg Wolfe, of Somerville Highway Patrol, said. “It’s a pity that when a driver starts the engine to their car they also don’t start their brain.”

Walking speed A ROSEBUD man is walking into 2020 after allegedly driving at 106kph in a 50kph zone along Point Nepean Road through Dromana, 3.30am, Tuesday 31 December. Rosebud police impounded the car for 30 days with a release fee of $1010.

The 35-year-old is expected to be charged on summons with driving at a speed dangerous and exceeding the speed limit. All police vehicles have speed measuring devices and officers are authorised take action as required.

Injuries investigated A CAPE Schanck man was taken to The Alfred hospital with “significant injuries” after an incident at Rosebud, overnight Tuesday 7 January. Detective Senior Sergeant Miro Majstorovic, of Somerville CIU, said the 28-year-old had been at the Rosebud Hotel earlier in the evening and may have attended other venues afterwards. Details of his whereabouts are sketchy. Anyone with information is urged to contact Crime Stoppers 1800 333 000 or Detective Majstorovic, 59781 300.

Police out in force MORE police are out on Main Street, Mornington in a bid to stop potential antisocial behaviour and alcohol-fuelled violence near pubs, clubs and restaurants. Mornington police say they will conduct more foot patrols, more venue walkthroughs, and more engagement with the public to “ensure patron and venue staff safety”. They will focus on Uber pick-up points and take a zero-tolerance approach to any anti-social behaviour. Anyone involved in alcohol-fuelled violence will be banned from licensed premises under the Mornington Safe City Liquor Accord and Court Sanctioned Alcohol Exclusion Orders. Liquor Accord bans are a collaborative approach between venues in Mornington and police. They can extend for a lifetime and apply anytime day or night. Three patrons have been banned from venues in the past month.

Family favourite a lure to Cats character THE offer of a prime role in the Young Australian Broadway Chorus production of Cats is a dream come true for Nathan Derix-Brown, of Somers. The former Padua College student, 18, plays the naughty Macavity in the National Theatre Melbourne production running for 10 shows, 17-25 January. The new interpretation of Andrew Lloyd Webber’s musical is set in a crumbling English Music Hall during the Great Depression. It honours the era when T S Eliot wrote the original poems for his children in the 1930s. Derix-Brown, who has trained with the Peninsula Ballet Ensemble, Somerville, under Sharyn Peters, for four years, says the dance-based musical has always been a family favourite. “It’s all character work, with dance and song; I love the passion and the movement,” he said. “I must have seen it at least 20 times – ever since I was a little kid. It meant a lot to my family as it was the only musical my grandmother ever saw on stage.” Derix-Brown says he loves playing Macavity. “He’s the bad cat who commits all the crimes ... He’s never actually caught because he’s never there but you just know he did it.” Derix-Brown was enticed into dance by a friend at the end of Year 8. “I was told they were looking for male dancers at PBE and I’d always liked dancing,” he said. “They were all so welcoming and took me in. I had no experience but I was able to work my way up to their level.” Up until then he had performed only in Padua College plays Beauty and the Beast and Annie. A performer for now, Derix-Brown has his sights set on a future in directing. He completed his VCE last year and has enrolled in a film and television degree course at Swinburne. Stephen Taylor

MARY Thomson with Jiao Ming after the unveiling of a bust of her late husband, champion golfer Peter Thomson, at Moonah Links. Picture: Supplied

Champion’s statue stays on course A BRONZE bust of golfer Peter Thomson now overlooks the championship Open Course he designed at Moonah Links, Fingal. The tribute to the PGA great was unveiled on Thursday 9 January at a ceremony attended by his wife Mary and other family members, his friend and business partner Ross Perrett, Mornington Peninsula Shire mayor Cr Sam Hearn, PGA chief operating officer Stuart Hergt and Jiao Ming, head of course owner the Peninsula International Group. Thomson, who won the English Open five times, including three in a row (1954, 1955 and 1956), died aged 89 in June 2018. “It is fitting that all golfers who play at our facility will pass this bust of Mr Peter Thomson

as they go out on course to begin their round,” Mr Ming said. “I am hopeful that as golfers pass the bust, they receive good luck and enjoy their round all the better as they acknowledge a great of the game.” Mr Hergt described Thomson as “a trailblazer” for the PGA of Australia of which he was president for 26 years. “The first PGA Immortal has been enshrined by the PGA of Australia as a golfing great, having contributed to our industry on so many levels,” Mr Hergt said at the unveiling ceremony. “The unveiling of his likeness here today is something that will remind all who play at this magnificent facility, that Peter is never far away from anyone who plays golf in Australia.

WHAT’S NEW...

Optima goes ‘all in’ for bushfire relief IT’S their annual sale; four weeks for gym membership for $44. Offering would be gym-junkies the chance to experience Optima Health and Fitness 24-7 gym, but this year there is a twist. Moved by the devastating fires in Australia, the gym has decided to donate 100% of the proceeds from their “4 weeks for $44” memberships to bushfire relief. “We really felt me needed to make a contribution,” said gym owner Ian Oldstein. “And our members have expressed a strong desire to help too.” It seemed a logical choice to donate the proceeds of their current promotion to bushfire relief. “Rather than just collect donations, we’re saying to people ‘come in and experience our wonderful gym and community for four weeks, and know you are supporting a worthy cause in doing so’”, said Ian. As well as the “4 weeks for $44” promotion, Optima health and Fitness are running fundraising classes called “Fighting fires with fitness”. “These classes are open to members and nonmembers alike,” said Ian. “They’ll be a mega fundraising class where the $10 entry fee will be donated to bushfire relief.” “We currently have a class scheduled for Friday 17 January, and plan to hold more in coming weeks”. “We are very proud of our gym, our crèche services and also the wonderful community we have here” said Ian. “So come and see us, grab a four week membership, or join a class, and get fit for the worthiest of causes!” “Donations can also be made at the collection tin at the front counter”. The Optima Health and Fitness “4 weeks for $44” offer is available until 31 January. Call on (03) 5976 4000 or drop in to see them at 36 Milgate Drive in Mornington.

Fitness for a worthy cause: Optima Health and Fitness manager Sarah Bravo and owner Ian Oldstein with their collection tin.

Use a renewable way to make hydrogen, not brown coal Victorian Treasurer Tim Pallas must have rocks, or coal dust, in his head if he thinks the brown coal to hydrogen project has any claim to be “clean energy” (“Ship another link in hydrogen chain” The News 17/12/19). The pilot project will release CO2 directly into the Australian atmosphere and produce quantities of waste solid material, while giving Japan a free ride with pollution-free hydrogen. The gas will be transported to Japan in a giant ship powered by oil-based fuel. Down the track, the CO2 is supposed to be captured and stored in an unspecified location by unproven technology. Not much chance of that. The only route to clean hydrogen is to have it produced entirely by renewable energy. Developing this technology to the stage where it is economic will also mean we could use it as a means of storing backup power to the grid that is far superior to batteries. That is the research smart governments would be investing in. Simon Westfold, Bittern

Hydrogen packs a punch Australia has again been “sucker punched”, this time by Japan, one of the biggest purchasers of coal from Australia (“Ship another link in hydrogen chain” The News 17/12/19). Coal combustion releases nitrogen oxides, sulfur dioxide, particulate matter, mercury, and dozens of other substances hazardous to human health and, while Australia continues to mine and burn coal, Japan will continue its course to rid itself of dependence on poisonous emissions moving to hydrogen. Japan is also turning abandoned golf courses into solar farms. Monash University’s alternative energy expert Dr Patrick Moriarty has said [the hydrogen process being used in the Latrobe Valley] “is just a way of making brown coal look green … that would do nothing for the climate”. The pilot project, which is quite small, will use 160 tonnes of coal, produce 100 tonnes of CO2, and produce just three tonnes of hydrogen. And then there are 108 tonnes of CO2 to provide the new electricity demand into the grid and the CO2 for transmission of gas to be converted to liquid and then the CO2 to get the liquid from Australia to Japan. Simon Holmes à Court, senior energy adviser to the Energy Transition Hub at Melbourne University: “While hydrogen itself is a clean fuel, using brown coal to produce hydrogen fuel is highly polluting.” There are much better solutions to producing hydrogen, such as pure water splitting including electrolysis, or through solar thermochemical and photoelectrochemical technologies, to name a few. But that wouldn’t work for Australia. We must protect our dying coal industry at all costs. Australia burns more coal producing poison into the atmosphere while Japan gets cheap clean energy. Everyone is smarter than Australian governments. But not to worry, I have been told by an impeachable reliable source that the Liberal gov-

ernment is holding top secret meetings to enact legislation that as of 2023 automobiles exported to Australia must be steam driven and powered by coal. Joe Lenzo, Safety Beach

Acceptable minimalism OUR Prime Minister Scott Morrison takes pride in the dubious claim that Australia is meeting its obligations under the Paris agreement. In the “clever country” one would expect that any caring parent would wish his offspring to aspire to gain high distinctions rather than just scrape thro ugh. Kevin Sack, Somers

Scomo [Prime Minister Scott Morrison], there is nothing to panic about. Even if there where, he won’t be taking any extra measures to address climate change. His paltry gist to the fire emergency around Australia is to give public servants an extra month of paid leave, so even they may, exhausted from weeks of fire fighting, go and keep the inferno from the doorsteps of towns from Queensland to Perth. I salute all the hard work done by our volunteers and professional fire fighters, but I fear they must be getting fairly exhausted by now. And we’re just at the start of our “normal” fire season. Australians deserve a lot better from our government when it comes to support for action on climate change. Rupert Steiner, Balnarring

Burning question “A Shorten Labor government will stop the federal government’s reduction in funding for our fire fighting capabilities by returning to a 50-50 funding split between the states and territories and the Commonwealth to ease the burden on state and territory governments, develop new national programs including a national risk management model, and national research and development programs including trials of new aircraft and night fire fighting activities.” One wonders how those who voted against Billy [then Labor leader Bill Shorten] (on instinct) are feeling now. Coupled with our luau [traditional Hawaiian party or feast] prime minister [Scott Morrison], who surely got it the wrong way around about with this one: “Those confronting the terrifyingly destructive and deadly fires will be inspired by the great feats of our cricketers from both sides of the Tasman’.” Cliff Ellen, Rye

State, federal reactions

ington Peninsula Freeway is so busy. Sometimes the traffic is backed up to the Bayview Road roundabout. At the other end of my estate, Boneo Road is a take-your-life-inyour-hands situation with cars coming off the Boneo Road end of the freeway thinking it is still 90kph. Something must happen to prevent these problems before a life is lost. Barbara Piers, Rosebud

Under exposed In my haste to submit an article I failed to acknowledge the name of the photographer who took the accompanying photo back in the 1950s (“Scouting for memories in a cardboard box” The News 24/12/19). He is Roger Whittaker, the strapping young man on the right. He set up his camera and dashed around to be in the picture. Sometimes photos help to illustrate a news story – at other times the picture is the story. This was the early days of Roger’s photographic career and he went on to take many pictures that were the story in Australia and overseas. Barry Morris, Mt Martha

Consultation, clarification

Ban bay jet skis

It has been so heart-warming to see the Victorian premier, Daniel Andrews’ response to the bushfires in Victoria. He has been at the briefings, making sure people know what they need to do and where they can go to get help. He and his ministers have been visiting the affected areas to offer comfort and solace. On the other hand, our prime minister [Scott Morrison] was first missing in action completely while he holidayed in Hawaii, then he came back and celebrated at Kirribilli watching the fireworks while communities were experiencing extreme bushfires. When he finally got around to making an announcement about additional support he turns the announcement into a political advertisement for the Liberal Party, with the Liberal Party website talking about “our response to the bushfires”. One has to ask if Scotty from Marketing is governing for the country or for his Liberal Party mates? Marg D’Arcy, Rye

Another summer and families, swimmers, boaties, yachties, sailboard riders and divers are all out and about on our beautiful bay. By and large the noise is the noise of people having a good time. I for one am often in the garden at home which is two kilometres from Mt Martha beach. Today, the peace and quiet for beachgoers, gardeners and people having a coffee at Mt Martha village is being destroyed by the scream and roar of jet skis. From kilometres away their screaming destroys the enjoyment most people get from beautiful outdoorsy summer days. They are only fit for one thing: going fast in circles, fast in straight lines and racing each other. Right now I am inside my house in Mt Martha and their noise is loud and clear. Trail bikers go bush, but jet skiers stay right in our laps. They must be banned altogether and not just for safety reasons. Ken Anderson, Mt Martha

Christmas on the nose

Traffic obstacle

This Christmas Day we awoke to the smell of burnt wildlife and forests. Not really what we wished for from Santa. Apparently, according to

Help. I am being held captive in my neighbourhood. On Jetty Road, Rosebud it is impossible to get through oncoming traffic when the Morn-

Ryman Health Care has had minimal community consultation with the stakeholders along Kunyung Road [Mt Eliza, who are] most likely to be impacted by increased commercial traffic (ambulance, food supplies and staff transport) and, more importantly, the impact upon ratepayers and property owners’ asset values (“Retirement village bid lodged with shire” The News 24/12/19). Hundreds of thousands of dollars will be lost by allowing this suburban [development] out of the urban growth zone onto green wedge land for a New Zealand property developer. Many Auckland homeowners [have] complained about [the] impact upon their assets as well as the obvious environmental out of neighbourhood character of such multi-storey institutional buildings. Locally, the ratepayers of Craigie Road, Mt Martha are angry at Ryman’s purchase of prime residential land that has provided rural views. While the article mentions a former councillor and twice rejected candidate since, Leigh Eustace, as being the main contributor to opposing Ryman, your report has got it wrong: Mr Eustace was never shire president, or mayor, which is the correct title of the Mornington [Peninsula] shire. He was not a president and neither is Cr Rosemary Clark the deputy mayor. Please check your sources before giving credence to such supposedly representative voices for those opposing Ryman. Indeed, the admission that Cr Clark received money from [developers and planners] Watsons Pty Ltd for election purposes may help explain how she gained the Briars Ward position (“Shire probe into permits” The News 24/12/19). IBAC has exposed the developer in question and I believe anyone associated with him must now have their credentials checked. Under these circumstances, I am calling for the immediate resignation of Cr Rosemary Clark and that [her] shire council position [be] left vacant until the next municipal elections. Ian Morrison, Mt Eliza Community Alliance

100 YEARS AGO THIS WEEK...

Aeroplane fatality - tribute to brave spirit Compiled by Cameron McCullough MANY of the leading business people of Melbourne attended the funeral on Tuesday of Mr. Philip Roff Nunn, who was fatally injured in the aeroplane accident at Mornington on Friday. Canon H. T. Langley of St. Mary’s Church of England, Caulfield, conducted the burial service. The funeral left the residence of Mr. P. W. Nunn, Elizabeth Street, Elsternwick, shortly after 11am, for the Melbourne General Cemetery. Several mourning coaches and a large number of motor cars followed the hearse, which was covered with beautiful wreaths. Flowers also covered the silver mounted coffin, and immediately in rear of the mourning coaches was a motor car from the “Herald” office filled almost to overflowing with floral expressions of sympathy. Among the 45 wreaths conveyed to the cemetery were many from relatives and friends of Mr. and Mrs. P. W. Nunn, and others from Messrs. Buckley and Nunn Ltd. and members of the staff; Messrs. Duerdin and Sainsbury (where the late Mr. Nunn had been employed) and the staff; Mr. and Mrs. Norman Bayles; directors and staff of the “Herald” and “Weekly Times” Ltd., who expressed their deepest sympathy with the bereaved parents; and the Larkin-Sopwith Aviation Company. The cortege passed through the cemetery gates shortly after midday, and there was a large assemblage at the graveside while the burial service was being read.

The pall-bearers, were Messrs. Colin Wood, J. Miller, J. M. Roberts, K. M. Roberts, J. Roff Smith, and Victor Bindley. Before reading the impressive words of the burial service, Canon Langley said that the fact that such a large number had congregated at the graveside was ample testimony to the esteem in which Mr. and Mrs. Nunn and their gallant lad were held, and a striking evidence of the sympathy felt for one of the prominent families of Melbourne in the disaster which had fallen upon it. Accidents such as these were inevitably associated with the progress of the world, as seen in the development of the aeroplane. There were some people who might be inclined to discourage this adventurous spirit, and to check the impulse of their sons from taking such risks as were inseparable from the development of aviation. But the qualities of courage and daring had made Australia worldfamous during the war, and in a brief space of time had constituted it a great nation. The Australian ‘love’ of adventure had brought forth what we were proud to call the Anzac spirit, which our lads had displayed so nobly on the battlefields of the world. “Let us pray God that we may have the same courageous spirit that was given to this brave lad,” concluded Canon Langley. *** A MEETING of the Frankston Show Committee will be held next Monday night.

*** A GRAND Garden Fete and Queen Carnival was opened at Hastings today and will be continued tomorrow, when the successful Queen will be crowned by His Grace, Dr Mannix, at 3.30. *** ONCE again we must ask contributors to send in their “copy” early in the week – not later than Tuesday afternoon. A large quantity of interesting matter reached us yesterday afternoon and we have been reluctantly compelled to hold over same till next issue. *** ATTENTION is directed to an important property sale at Frankston on the 10th January, comprising seaside villas and building allotments. Particulars are advertised. The auctioneers are Messrs Brody and Mason, in conjunction with Mr J. Nott Marsh. *** THE Wattle Club entertained a number of soldiers from the Caulfield Hospital at Frankston on Sunday. last. The visitors were welcomed by the Club’s President, Miss D. Gregory, and the Hon. Secretary, Mrs Wilcox. Afternoon tea was served in the Mechanics’ Hall, when a willing band of Wattle Club members ministered to the requirements of the honored guests. An attractive programme of musical items was rendered and the men spent a really enjoyable time. ***

Eliza, will regret to learn of his bereavement, in the death of his father, which sad event took place this week. *** THE late Frederick Augustus Hunt, of the Tanti Hotel, Mornington was well known in Frankston.

Finally, Relief From Your Hip Pain DOES this describe YOU? • You get hip pain laying on your side in bed, and just can’t get to sleep. • You place a pillow between your legs to help you get to sleep but laying on the painful side is still waking you. • You find yourself standing on one leg with your other hip hanging lower, or you sitting with crossed legs causes the pain • You are a runner worried your hip pain will get worse and stop you from exercising. If so then read on. The pain on the outside of the hip can be due to inflammation of the gluteal tendon, of Gluteus Medius and Minimus, where the gluteal muscles attach. It can also be where a bursa (a fat pad called the trochanteric bursa) can become inflamed. The hip pain may be associated with a stiff back. Physiotherapist May Wan, says that it is an injury affected by hip weakness and postural habits that place the tendons under stress. It requires a full analysis of the hip and lower limb, looking from the foot to the back biomechanics. It can require massage, and specific strengthening exercises for the gluteal muscles as well as improving core stability to control pelvic movement. In addition to the above solutions, there is a recent healing technology that is making a profound difference to outside of the hip pain sufferers. Practice owner, Paul Rowson says

Physiotherapist, May Wan. “Shockwave Therapy is often useful, because the gluteal tendons are a connective tissue, not a muscle. It puts a significant shockwave through the tissues you apply it to. It is a pressure wave which brings blood flow to the area. Tendons and connective tissue do not have much blood supply and can take a long time to heal. Shockwave artificially stimulates the healing of the tendon.” Shockwave therapy can also be used on Achilles tendonitis, Plantar Fasciitis, golfer’s and tennis elbow, and rotator cuff tendon problems,

and is usually most effective on long term chronic problems, rather than acute injuries. Shockwave is not the first line of treatment for injured patients. Physiotherapy and graded exercise are more likely in the first instance. But for more stubborn conditions, shockwave has shown good results. “The evidence at the moment suggests between three to five treatments are required, but most people should see an improvement within three sessions. It has a success rate up to 90%” May says. The Shockwave therapy is administered for a three-minute period

to the affected area during consecutive weekly appointments. “It is a bit of an uncomfortable sensation” May says, “like most physio hands-on treatments, with a little discomfort during the treatment.” Paul says, “After each session, most people get a significant reduction of pain and symptoms. Long term it stimulates healing, short term it reduces pain. The best thing is, the effects are long lasting. It prevents a lot of people having more invasive things like surgery or injections. The treatment is considered safe, but can produce skin reddening or bruising, short term pain, and

cannot be used on people taking blood thinning medications or with bleeding disorders. “ “It is important to know that Shockwave has a long-term effect. Most of the time you have good outcomes, without having to have further treatments.” Shockwave is now available in Balnarring. Call the practice now and speak to one of our physios to see if Shockwave suits your condition. Back in Motion is at 6/2-8 Russell Street, Balnarring.

IMMERSE IN THE ART OF SUBLIME SEA AT MPRG - 14 DEC – 23 FEB A SPECTACULAR, immersive exhibition about the power of the sea in human imagination, Sublime Sea: rapture and reality comes to the Mornington Peninsula Regional Gallery from 14 December- 23 February. With more than 100 superb examples of paintings, sculpture, photography, film and the decorative arts, the major summer exhibition reveals how the sense of wonder and awe that has driven artists across the centuries is heightened today as the sea itself is under threat. Featuring loans from major galleries and museums around Australia –including NGV, NGA, Art Gallery of NSW, Queensland Art Gallery, Australian National Maritime Museum, Museum of Applied Arts and Sciences, Museum Victoria and various private galleries - Sublime Sea: rapture and reality evokes the overwhelming experience of nature, from intrepid journeys and mysterious grottos to the infinite space of the ocean. Curator Dr Vivien Gaston says: “The exhibition shows how a sublime vision evokes intense beauty that transports the viewer beyond the everyday, as well as overwhelming fear that emphasises human insignificance and often a combination of both. “Outstanding works that demonstrate these extremes include Rupert Bunny’s dreamy Sea Idyll, Tamara Dean’s exhilarating Endangered, Oswald Brierly’s daunting Amateur Whaling or Greg Semu’s challenging The Raft.” The stars of the sea are also not forgotten – the exhibition includes video footage of the underwater ballet prowess of Australian swimmer and vaudeville/film performer Annette Kellerman, the first woman to defy conservatism and get arrested for sporting a one-piece bathing suit in 1907. Her famous mermaid costume also features in Sublime Sea. Contemporary works – including photographic works by Todd McMillan, Anne

Zahlaka, Petrina Hicks and Tamara Dean’s Endangered, winner of the 2019 Moran Contemporary Photographic Prize - reflect new realities and insights into human interaction with the sea, the tragic voyages of refugees, threat of plastic pollution and alienation from natural forces. Evoking both exhilarating awe and disruptive challenge, Sublime Sea seeks a new understanding of our relationship with the beauty and power of natural forces. The exhibition creates a new ‘cabinet of curiosities’, combining art and the natural sciences, with spectacular and beautiful examples of marine creatures from Museum Victoria, including a polar bear – paying homage to their individual lives, evoking their loss and signalling threats to their environment.

“Sublime Sea crosses historical and museum boundaries and brings together art works, material objects and scientific specimens in a rich display that seeks to reinterpret how humans relate to the sea,” says Vivien. The Sublime Sea: Rapture and Reality has been years in the making, and builds on the Mornington Peninsula Regional Gallery’s rich history of developing and presenting outstanding exhibitions that focus on their coastal location, stories and relationship with the sea.

Eyes on the prize: Somerville made quick work of Pines’ target, achieving it in just 35 overs. Picture: Andrew Hurst

Pines fall, Carrum set Seaford Tigers a big total, Baron blitzes with hat trick By Brodie Cowburn

PENINSULA

PINES have fallen to a first day defeat in their two day clash against Somerville. Pines were sent in to bat first and struggled from the outset. None of their top order batsmen managed to reach double digit figures, and they were rolled for a disappointing total of 94. Star bowler Jayde Herrick was in fine from once again for Somerville, posting figures of 5/28 in their first innings. Somerville made quick work of their target, and finished the day at 3/103 from 35 overs. At Ballam Park, Red Hill are on the verge of securing victory in their match against Long Island. Long Island chose to bat first and got off to a decent start. They were in a good position at 2/86, but soon completely collapsed to be all out for 112. Red Hill finished at 2/80 at stumps, in pole position to get the win. A brilliant century from Sam Mullavey helped Heatherhill to a big first innings total against Pearcedale. Mullavey made 105 runs before being dismissed. Heatherhill ended up setting Pearcedale a target of 250 to

chase down. Pearcedale struggled with the bat before stumps was called, and will restart on day two from 3/28. At Ditterich Reserve Moorooduc finished their first innings at 8/252.

DISTRICT

AN impressive knock of 89 from batsman Shaun Foster has helped Carrum set their opponents a target of 229 to chase down. Up against Seaford Tigers, Carrum got off to a shaky start on Saturday and looked in trouble at 4/57. Foster helped to steady the ship and guide his side towards a defendable total. Delacombe Park batsman Ricky Ramsdale also impressed with the willow, as he put 85 runs on the board against Mt Martha. Ramsdale didn’t receive much support from his teammates, and Delacombe Park ended up all out for 170 off just under 60 overs. Mt Martha’s run chase got off to a positive start, and they will start day two from 0/40. Playing host to Dromana, Hastings chose to bat first on their home turf and were sent packing for 141. A tail order collapse did the home team no favours. They were in a decent spot at 6/132 before losing 4/9 and being

dismissed. Dromana’s run chase didn’t get off to the smoothest start. They made 2/17 off 20 overs before the close of play. At Cyril Fox Reserve, Crib Point elected to bat first on day one and made 180 runs. Rosebud batted for three overs before stumps, making a quick 18 runs.

SUB DISTRICT

A CENTURY from Ryan McQueen was the highlight of Seaford’s huge first innings against Carrum Downs. McQueen made the Kananook Reserve pitch his own with a phenomenal knock of 111 runs. Seaford were dominant, setting Carrum Downs a mammoth target of 302 to have to chase down on the second day of play. Shane Smith worked hard and was the best of the bowlers for the afternoon, taking 5/110 off 33 overs. Skye had a tough day at home as they played host to Tyabb. Skye were sent in to bat first and had trouble. They ended up all out for just 93 off 44 overs. Tyabb bowler Heath Straughair was impressive with the ball, taking 5/19 off 12 overs. The away side made quick work of their target, and finished the day at

3/135 off just 26 overs. Openers Nick Taranto and Michael Edwards each reached their half centuries for Tyabb, putting together a 118 run opening stand. Tyabb declared and Skye made 3/38 in their second innings before stumps. A bad start on day two puts them at risk of an outright loss. At Truemans Road Reserve, Tootgarook made quick work of Rye’s paltry first innings total of 54. Tootgarook declared at 7/129 with their sights firmly set on an outright win. Rye will restart on day two from 1/ 8. Ballam Park made 150 runs before being dismissed in their clash against Balnarring. Balnarring look set to claim victory on day two. They will restart from 2/88.

PROVINCIAL

A HAT trick from Mt Eliza bowler Nicholas Baron was the highlight of day one in his side’s clash against Baxter. Playing at Emil Madsen Reserve, Baxter struggled badly with the bat. Baxter chose to bat first, and the decision didn’t pay off. They were dismissed for 98 runs.

Baron’s hat trick helped him reach his best ever bowling figures for his club. He finished with 6/24 off 25 overs, including 12 maidens. Mt Eliza restart on day two from 0/16. Flinders will have their work cut out for them on day two to chase down a formidable target set by Baden Powell at BA Cairns Reserve. Rhys Elmi had an excellent day, putting 81 runs on the board for Baden Powell off 100 deliveries. His innings included 11 fours and 2 sixes. Baden Powell were eventually bowled out for 249. Flinders made a good start to their run chase, sprinting away to 0/45 off their five overs played before stumps. Morrnington played host to Sorrento on Saturday and managed to put 180 runs on the scoreboard before being sent packing. Sorrento batted for nine overs before the end of play for the day, and made 0/26. At Lloyd Park, Langwarrin made 186 runs in their first innings against Peninsula OB. Old Boys bowler John Forrest was their best performer for the day, posting figures of 4/46.

Portelli, Maclaren leave Langy SOCCER

By Craig MacKenzie LUCAS Portelli signed with NPL heavyweight Oakleigh Cannons last weekend while Fraser Maclaren could return to former club Beaumaris. Ex-Melbourne City teenager Portelli agreed terms in October for a second season with Langy but attracted the interest of Cannons and played against Melbourne Victory in a practice match on Saturday. Oakleigh won 4-0 and Portelli had a 30-minute hitout. “He’s come under my radar quite a while ago and I wanted to know what the boy was like so we had a meeting with him and his dad and invited him down to a training session,” Cannons boss Chris Taylor said. “We were very keen on him, no doubt about it and from what I’ve seen of him I think he could do a good job for us.” Langwarrin was loathe to lose Portelli but Taylor defended his approach to the youngster. “I can understand Langwarrin not being happy but that’s just a part of the game and I believe that Lucas should be playing at a higher level,” he said. “Once we got the right reaction from Lucas (at the meeting) I said to him ‘the first thing you need to do is speak to Langwarrin and tell them what’s going on’. “He did that and I spoke to (Langy head coach) Scott Miller last Thursday.” Langwarrin players are not contracted so there was little Miller could do to retain Portelli or Maclaren. Miller and Maclaren spoke last weekend and the talented keeper confirmed that work commitments had forced him to step away from the NPL. “Work issues have become pressing for Fraser and he faced the prospect of missing four to six sessions a month and perhaps 10 games which simply wasn’t feasible,” Miller said. “He’s effectively been forced to put his football career on hold at the age of 24.” Despite losing two vital elements of his senior squad Miller was unperturbed. His immediate task is to decide how he wants to use the money budgeted for these two players. He’s definitely in the market for a first-class goalkeeper but he could choose to add another striker to his squad rather than a like-for-like replacement for Portelli. “It’s all good. We’ll get it sorted,” he said. In other Langwarrin news club president Tanya Wallace emailed the competing clubs last week confirming the draw and venue for the 2020 Wallace Cup. The eighth staging of the tournament takes place at Centenary Park on Saturday 1 February and will be a straight knockout format. Here is the schedule: 11am Langwarrin v Peninsula Strikers, Rosebud v Seaford United; 12 noon Mornington v Frankston Pines, Skye United v Baxter. The semi-finals are at 1.15pm and 2.15pm and the final is at 3.30pm. Losing clubs in the knockout stage will play a second match during the

same league as us!’ “I said ‘Billy that’s the next problem’ and his reply was ‘I’ll have to get my handbag out because we’ll be having handbag fights at 10 paces.’ “I thanked him because had he said that he’d prefer if I didn’t take the job I would have had a total rethink.” Rae wants local goalscoring legend David Greening to assist him at Somerville but Greening is currently holidaying overseas and the pair need to sit down and discuss Rae’s plans for the veteran striker. “I’d like David to become my assistant and I can step away down the track and hand the reins over to him,” Rae said. Rae, 70, views the Somerville job as likely his last in a senior coaching role and he sees Greening as an important part of his onfield plans. “My idea about football is pretty simple – it’s all about scoring goals,” Rae said. “How the goalkeeper plays and the defence and the midfield and the guys up front are all important but we have to score goals. “That is what the game’s all about.” In other local news Mount Martha resident Gavin O’Reilly flew out of Melbourne yesterday (Monday) to trial with A-League giant Sydney FC. The 16-year-old midfielder is a former Mornington and Langwarrin junior who has been training with Bentleigh Greens senior squad. In State 1 news Mornington may have lost Andre Bennett. The English import and partner Shauni Mankin returned to Melbourne last week after spending Christmas and New Year overseas but Mankin had an issue with her visa and the couple was forced to return to the UK. Losing Bennett will be a blow to the local club as he was expected to play an important role at right back in a change to the club’s playing style. Mornington also may have to play this year’s opening two league fixtures away from home as work started this week on a resurfacing project at Dallas Brooks Park. In State 3 news five Fijian players are expected to join Frankston Pines next month. They are Ba midfielder Kishan Sami, Nasinu goalkeeper Mohammed Alzaar Alam, Rewa midfielder Savenaca Baledrokadroka, Lautoka midfielder Shivam Naidu and Nadi striker Tito Vodowaqa. All of them played last year in the OFC Olympic qualifying tournament held in Fiji. Pines kick-off their pre-season schedule with a friendly on Saturday at Monterey Reserve against Bunyip District at 5pm and 7pm. In State 5 news Aspendale Stingrays have confirmed practice matches against Endeavour United at Reema Reserve at 7pm on Thursday 23 January; Seaford United at North Seaford Reserve at 1pm and 3pm on Saturday 8 February; and Lyndale United at Lyndale Secondary College at 1pm and 3pm on Saturday 7 March.

semi-finals. The annual charity event is a celebration of the local game and honours Stephen William Wallace, Langwarrin life-member and former club president, committeeman, coach, player and Bayside League referee who died on 19 July 2011 at the age of 54. Meanwhile the coaching spotlight during the festive season fell on Scott Morrison and Billy Rae as both were appointed to new roles at local clubs. Morrison had stepped down as senior coach of State 4 side Somerville Eagles in late November and was appointed senior assistant to Paul Williams at State 2 club Peninsula Strikers on 29 December. Morrison’s coaching career kicked off at Rosebud a few years ago and he replaced Ray Vaughan at Rosebud Heart in late 2015. He entered the record books in 2016 in charge of the Heart senior team that won every league game. That year Heart strolled away with the State 5 South championship with 18 wins, 76 goals for and 11 against and became only the second Victorian senior team in more than 50 years to achieve such a feat. Morrison won the State 5 South title again last year with Somerville. He was contacted by State 4 side Noble Park United after leaving Somerville but chose to join Strikers instead. “Experience and exposure at a higher level were important factors,” Morrison said. “It’s pretty exciting what they want to do and it’s fair to say it’s not the Strikers of old. “There are a lot of talented youngsters down there and I think we’ll be more than competitive. “I think Paul would agree that we’d be looking to push into the top four.”

On Saturday morning Morrison and Williams watched intently as an intraclub match took place at Centenary Park with Robbie Acs in goal for the senior squad and ex-Mornington and Frankston Pines striker Jason Bradbury scoring twice. Among the onlookers were Oscar Marsden and John Prescott. Strikers are keen to hold onto Marsden despite Berwick City’s interest in the defender while striker Prescott is training with Langwarrin this week. The future of midfielder Danny Brooks is uncertain. He took part in Saturday’s match but remains on Mornington’s radar. So far Strikers have locked in a number of preseason fixtures. They play Endeavour United at Centenary Park at 1pm and 3pm on Saturday 18 January; Frankston Pines at Monterey Reserve at 7.15pm on Thursday 23 January (reserves v Pines at Centenary Park at 6.30pm on same day); Spring Hills at Centenary Park at 1pm and 3pm on Saturday 8 February; Mazenod at Mazenod College at 1pm and 3pm on Saturday 15 February; and South Springvale at Centenary Park at 1pm and 3pm on Saturday 29 February. Veteran coach Rae was another on the coaching merry-go-round as he was announced as assistant to Billy Armour at Endeavour United on 3 December and 27 days later was named new senior coach of State 4 rival Somerville Eagles. The short term of his stay at Endeavour caught observers by surprise but before giving Somerville the thumbs up Rae phoned Armour who was holidaying in New York and they enjoyed a friendly exchange: “I phoned Billy to tell him about Somerville and the first thing he said was ‘I’m happy for you but I’m so disappointed’ then he went quiet for a second and said ‘hang on a minute you’re in the
