Jumpers warned about perils at the Pillars THRILL seekers are being told not to jump off the rocks into the bay at the Pillars, Mount Martha. The safety advice follows two recent incidents where jumpers have been seriously injured while attempting to jump. On Friday 12 January a persopn was airlifted to the Alfred Hosital with suspected neck injuries. One week earlier a 20-year-old man was taken to hospital with neck pain after attempting a jump and being rescued by emergency services. Just weeks before that a 12-year-old girl attempted a pin jump from the cliffs and broke both legs and her ankle. She was being filmed by her father who was watching from a boat. The Pillars is on Crown land owned by the state government and managed by Mornington Peninsula Shire Council. The mayor Cr Simon Brooks said it was a difficult situation with “no easy solutions”. “Fencing off the area didn’t work. Instead, we have improved the signage clearly warning people of the dangers of this area and closed some of the informal paths to the site,” he said. “We also introduced parking restrictions in the surrounding residential streets to make it harder for people to visit the site. These measures have vastly reduced the number of complaints we receive. “The Pillars is a fragile coastal cliff formation with changeable water conditions influenced by tides and weather. “Standing or sitting on the rock or the cliff edge poses a very high safety risk and we urge people not to enter the site.” The Pillars is within Mount Martha Foreshore Reserve and has become known around the world as a scenic spot for cliffjumping. Many residents would prefer to see the cliff fenced off to discourage summer sightseers from causing traffic congestion, walking along the Esplanade, leaving rubbish and creating a public nuisance.

Don’t limit speed cuts - Gill Keith Platt keith@mpnews.com.au MORNINGTON Peninsula Shire councillors are being urged to overturn their policy of only asking the state government to reduce speed limits on five or six roads a year. Cr David Gill said council’s adoption of setting such low targets was “our worst road safety decision in my time as a councillor”. His move to have no limit on approaches to the government puts him on course for a head-on clash with council officers who have said making

the requests were “too onerous with little recent reward”. Gill says Roads and Road Safety Minister Melissa Horne has used the peninsula as an example of where cutting road speed limits has led to a reduction in accidents, death and injury. At council’s first public meeting for 2024 (6 February) Gill will propose that “council rescind its position to only advocate to the state government for five or six roads a year for speed reduction consideration given road Safety Minister Melissa Horne's recent ‘government commitment to reduce speed limits on country roads’

after last year’s highest Victorian road toll in 15 years and her using the Mornington Peninsula as evidence of effective toll reduction after lower speed restrictions on over 30 dangerous roads were introduced here five years ago”. “Action is needed if the shire doesn’t want to return to having the worst road toll in Victoria,” Gill told The News. “The government’ lack of attention and neglect has been so poor that council officers convinced council last year that the effort and expense to save lives with reduced speed limits

when advocating to the state government for consideration was too onerous with little recent reward. “I believe this was our worst road safety decision in my time as a councillor.” Gill said speed limits should be aligned to match circumstances on the peninsula “and our eight million visitors each year in order to help save lives”. “We have high speed, narrow, often windy, tree lined roads around the peninsula.” Horne said road trauma was “a complex challenge and sadly the con-

tributing factors are not new – speed, not wearing a seat belt, drink and drug driving, high speed country roads, less safe older cars, multi-passenger fatalities and increasing level of travel on our roads”. In a statement issued on 29 December the state government urged Victorians to “make safety a priority … [after] a devastating year on the state’s roads”. “Data shows that lower-level drink driving and speeding, failing to obey road signs and distraction accounted for more than half of fatalities on state roads in 2023.

Drains blamed for flooding of streets, homes Liz Bell liz@mpnews.com.au MORNINGTON Peninsula residents are being reminded to have their storm water drainage systems checked regularly after last week’s flash flooding clogged systems and deluged properties. Some residents are again mopping up and drying out homes after up to 48.8mm of rain hit the peninsula overnight on Sunday night (7 January) through to Monday. Flood warnings were issued for many towns around Victoria, as much of the state was also lashed with wild weather. Rosebud, Hastings, Mount Eliza and Mount Martha were among the hardest hit on the peninsula, but all areas received significant rainfall. The State Emergency Service reminded residents to stay alert on the roads, as weakened trees fell in many rural areas across the peninsula. Weather Bureau records for the rain gauge at HMAS Cerberus, Crib Point, which takes in rainfall for Rosebud and Hastings, showed the total at that site in the 24 hours to 9am Monday 8 January was 31.4mm. The nearest rain gauge for Mount Eliza and Mount Martha is Frankston, with the rainfall total at that site in the 24 hours to 9am Monday 8 January at 48.8mm. The SES stations that cover much of the area from Frankston to Sorrento, including Hastings, received 121 requests for assistance, 60 for flood-

related damage and 28 for trees down. One Mount Eliza resident said storm water blockages had caused water to be redirected into the bottom floor of her two-storey house, soaking carpets and belongings. “The rain was so heavy and so fast that my storm water pipes just couldn’t cope because there was already a build-up of sand and dirt that I didn’t know about,” she said. “Now it’s costing me thousands to remediate the damage.” Storm water damage expert Richard Broxham from Squeaky Clean Team carpet cleaners said his company had been called to several jobs across the peninsula. “Waters damage is often worse than it looks, and can cause mould and wood rot and health problems,” he said. “As soon as possible you need to eliminate the damp and ensure everything is completely dry or it will become much worse.” As a general rule, residents are responsible for storm water systems on their property. Anyone in need of SES assistance should call 132 500, or in an emergency call 000.

ROADS and drains were unable to cope with last week’s heavy rains, creating hazards on roads and pouring potentially polluted water into the bay. Pictures: Adam Richmond

Weight loss leads to living a better life Liz Bell liz@mpnews.com.au

Weight answer: Ruth Carmichael, 79, left, pictured with Kathy Woodroffe, 81, says her weight loss achievements would have been more difficult without support from the Take Off Weight Naturally (TOWN) group. Picture: Gary Sissons

NO ONE’S UNSINKABLE To all those Unsinkable Guys out there – You might think it’s safe to have a few drinks around water, skip the life jacket when you’re out on the boat or go for a swim without checking the conditions. But statistics prove that 4 out of 5 drownings are men. Just remember that no one’s unsinkable.

ANYONE who has ever struggled with their weight will know the emotional rollercoaster involved in the weight loss journey and the importance of being supported. The Mornington-based healthy eating group, Take Off Weight Naturally (TOWN), celebrates its 25th anniversary in February - a quarter of a century of helping people stay healthy and manage their weight. The not-for-profit group has more than 40 members who meet at Mornington Bowls Club on Wednesday mornings, providing friendship and support in a nonjudgmental environment. TOWN clubs encourage weight loss by promoting a nutritionally balanced diet and giving encouragement and practical advice on how to lose weight and keep it off. Ruth Carmichael, of Mornington, joined 24 years ago when she was in her 50s, after struggling with her weight most of her life. Carmichael was around 90 kilograms and felt that carrying extra kilos was damaging her health and not allowing her to live her best life. “I got my weight down to around 75 kilograms gradually, and at one point during COVID it was in the 60s, and I know I could not have done that on my own,” she said. “I think with most people who need to lose weight it has been a lifelong battle because they haven’t really had the right support and advice and motivation. “I had tried a lot of other weight loss

groups, but some of them can be costly and make it hard to keep going. “TOWN is cheap by comparison, and we don’t really go on diets as such, we give each other support and advice, and we have competitions to make weight loss fun.” It’s a similar story for Kathy Woodroffe, who joined the Mornington group from its inception. “I went to a meeting 25 years ago where they were looking for expressions of interest to start a group in Mornington and I couldn’t get there quick enough,” she said. “I’ve struggled with my weight all my life and went from 102 kilograms to around 69 kilograms in two years with the club’s support, healthy eating and exercise,” she said. Last year Mornington TOWN won the group’s statewide weight-loss competition, with members losing a collective 140 kilograms. TOWN clubs discourage the use of nonprescribed medication and substitute foods. The first club was established in Melbourne in 1968 by two Melbourne women and there are now more than 80 clubs that meet weekly throughout Victoria and NSW. To be eligible to join TOWN Mornington a letter from a doctor is required, advising the club of how much the prospective member would like to weigh. Members must be over 14 and make a commitment to attend weekly meetings and lose weight. Clubs are run by volunteers and members compete for weight loss awards each week, with special awards given out once a month.

Sea level threat to coastal living Brodie Cowburn brodie@mpnews.com.au RISING sea levels will pose a huge risk to the coastlines of the Mornington Peninsula and Frankston this century, according to a state government-commissioned report. The Port Phillip Bay Coastal Hazard Assessment report published last week assessed potential damage to the bay’s coastlines if sea levels rise by 1.4 metres. It listed the area around Martha Cove, the Balcombe Estuary recreation reserve at Mount Martha and the foreshore from Rosebud to Dromana as being at risk of inundation once sea levels rose. Patterson Lakes is one of the areas most at risk on the eastern side of Port Phillip, according to the Commonwealth Scientific and Industrial Research Organisation. “The highly urbanised and lowlying areas of Greater Geelong, Werribee, City of Port Phillip and Mordialloc to Frankston were deemed most at risk from hazards posed by sea level rise,” the report stated. “For the Borough of Queenscliffe and City of Bayside the area of inundation approximately doubles between present conditions and 1.4 m of sea level rise whereas for the Cities of Hobsons Bay, Greater Geelong, Frankston and Mornington Peninsula Shire the inundation area undergoes an approximate two to three-fold increase for a 1.4 m sea level rise.”

WARNINGS have been issued about flooding of streets and properties along the Port Phillip coastline becoming the norm rather than the result of abnormal rain events. Pictures: Yanni The CSIRO report states that the Kingston Council area faces a “tenfold” inundation risk if the 1.4 metre sea level rise model is applied. It read that some parts of the Kingston Council area were not properly equipped for that scenario. “Much of this increase occurred in the Edithvale-Seaford Wetlands between Mordialloc Creek and Patterson River indicating that existing coastal protection structures would not be effective for 1.4 metre sea level rise.” A map of the potential impacts of a 1.4 metre sea level rise by 2100 shows all of Frankston beach at risk

of erosion. After the report’s release the Prime Minister Anthony Albanese told a news conference that “the first thing that we have a role in is enacting on climate change”. “My government is taking serious action on it. Of course planning is the responsibility of state governments, but we work cooperatively with governments of all persuasions to work through these issues,” he said. “We have a government that is committed to action on climate change and an opposition that, in spite of the evidence that we see with the

science and warnings that we were told about, of more extreme and more regular and more intense extreme weather events, nothing seems to have woken up the Liberal and National parties in Australia to this.” The state government said it had spent $1.8 million “to support local governments and land managers to progress adaptation planning studies in the Port Phillip Bay area, with the release of the Coastal Hazard Assessment to support progression of these projects.” Environment Minister Steve Dimopoulos said “the Port Phillip

Bay Coastal Hazard Assessment will be used to help local authorities and Victorians make better informed decision around our changing coastal environment”. “Victoria’s precious coastline is already being impacted by climate change. Our focus is on managing the risks, adapting to the changes, and supporting communities and industries to be resilient,” he said.

Board line-up: Surfboard makers represented in Dillon Milenkovic’s travelling museum, from left, Mick Pierce, Geoff Coker, John Jolly, Steve Friedman, Bruce “Bean” Fewings, Paul Trigger, Phil Trigger, Neil “Chok” Oke, Rory Oke and Dan Oke. Picture: Tony Grace

Board shapes part of peninsula’s surf history Keith Platt keith@mpnews.com.au THREE decades of the Mornington Peninsula’s surfing history are being carried around in a mobile museum. The seven new surfboards in the museum represent the pointy end of surfing - the evolution of boards used and preferred by surfers. Dillon Milenkovic said it had “always been a dream” to order new surfboards from all local manufacturers “and see what eventuates”. His wish was granted through a $10,000 “creative arts” grant from Mornington Peninsula Shire and a decision to focus on the history of surfboard making and design. The craftmanship and innovation

shown in the completed “new but old” boards is also a conversation starter whenever Milenkovic unloads his historic cargo. He also hopes seeing the surfboards will encourage people to “fall in love with them that much that an order is placed with the local craftsman”. An avid supporter of the surf industry on the peninsula, Milenkovic sees the mobile museum as a natural progression to the Salt of the Peninsula podcasts he started in April 2022 (Time dissolves as ‘salts’ look back, The News 9/4/22). At that stage he had interviewed more than 15 surfers, mainly surfboard makers, about their times and lives chasing waves, for the podcast’s 19-episodes. Salt of the Peninsula

(Spotify and Podbean) now has 32 episodes, runs for about 100 hours, and has been downloaded more than 30,000 downloads. “To verbally extract the information from all podcast guests and to rely on listeners’ prior knowledge was what Salt Of The Peninsula was about, up until now,” Milenkovic said. “To have the surfboards in the flesh means people who listen to the podcast can also see what sort of quality and skill was put into these locally manufactured surfboards. Supporting locally built surfboards, is what drives my podcast and project.” While looking for a permanent home for the mobile museum Milenkovic has taken it to surf clubs, events, surf shops, exhibitions and other

general gatherings. The boards are transported in his van, and he hopes to be able to exhibit them at least once a month. He said the seven board builders decided to make replicas of designs that were ground breaking, from the 1970s, 1980s and 1990s. “It’s brilliant that all seven boards are so different, this really increases the interest of each surfboard and craftsman,” Milenkovic said. “Salt Of The Peninsula now not only has audio history but has objects that the general public can see with a lot of thought and skill behind the project. “As the surfboards are all so different, you simply can’t compare and like one more than the other. They should all be marvelled on their own

Unpaid fines add to ‘disadvantaged’ costs Liz Bell liz@mpnews.com.au MANY motorists from the Mornington Peninsula, Frankston and Casey areas are finding it difficult to pay fines for traffic offences. Statistics released by Peninsula Community Legal Centre (PCLC) show that 40 per cent of fines issued in Victoria over the past 12 months were to people on the peninsula (2754), Frankston (16,714) and Casey (35,256). Fines Victoria’s data indicates that the value of fines at the enforcement stage in PCLC’s catchment for 2022 to 2023 was almost $30 million. The average fine debt was $13,000, with some clients owing as much as $70,000. CEO Jackie Galloway said the centre was concerned about the impact of fines on people who were already struggling with living and housing costs. “The areas in our catchment where the highest numbers of fines were issued last year also have some of the most disadvantaged postcodes in the state,” she said. “This means our fines team is seeing an increase in the number of people who are already struggling to put food on the table and pay their rent who simply don’t have sufficient funds to

pay their fines, even though they want to do the right thing.” In the 12 months to July 2023, more than two thirds of clients who came through PCLC’s fines clinic were experiencing financial disadvantage and just under one half had disability and/or mental health issues. “We are particularly concerned about the fact that the fines system is a common entry point into the criminal justice system for vulnerable people who are not trying to avoid their fines, but who simply do not have the means to pay,” Galloway said. “There is an urgent need for the government to help these people pay off their fines in other ways, rather than crippling them with life-long debt and the threat of criminal sanctions.” A program run by Fines Victoria called the Work and Development Permit Scheme (WDP) has been operating since 2017 which aims to help vulnerable people resolve their fines. The scheme allows people to work off their fine debt through therapeutic programs including financial counselling, educational and vocational courses, treatment by a health practitioner, volunteering activities, or drug and alcohol counselling. PCLC has been supporting the program since 2019 with a special project paid for by the Victorian Legal Services Board.

“In our view the WDP scheme is at risk of stalling just at the time when it is needed most,” Galloway said. A comparison with the system in NSW, which the Victorian system was modelled on, illustrated the problems. In the 2021/2022 financial year in NSW there were 29,508 WDPs issued to work off fines totalling $44.2 million. In the same period in Victoria just 1504 WDPs were completed to work off debts of $3.5 m. The scheme depended on sponsor organisations, but Galloway said there was a shortage of accredited sponsors and the scheme could meet demand. “The fines enforcement system is ineffective and disproportionately burdensome for vulnerable members of the community who find it impossible to pay their fines,” she said. “It is also very costly for government. We are calling on the Victorian government to invest more resources into the WDP scheme to provide better access for vulnerable Victorians to reduce their fines debt and remove them from the enforcement system, while still maintaining the deterrence and reduction of re-offending.” Anyone who is struggling with fines debt or who is interested in obtaining more information about how to become an accredited sponsor under the WDP scheme can contact PCLC’s fines and WDP team on 9783 3600.

Peninsula misunderstood in boundary changes plan By David Gill* HAVING one person in charge of boundaries and names for wards on the Mornington Peninsula leads to the possibility of the first political gerrymander in Australian history. The electoral structure review panel which is about to announce details of 11 wards on the peninsula was appointed by and is accountable only to the Local Government Minister, Melissa Horne. The new wards will replace the six existing wards and be in place for the October council elections. There is no apparent way of splitting the shire into 11 wards that improves the existing boundaries in the best interests of the general community, including small businesses and farmers. The naming of wards should be put on hold until properly investigated. I object to the process but understand that the minister moved the independent powers away from the Victorian Electoral Commission (VEC) onto an appointed panel and that the minister will make all final decisions without the usual early or acceptable community consultation. The panel is answerable only to the minister not to the community. Feedback is basically limited to several choices made by the panel on important shire ward boundary and naming decisions in a regional municipality unsuited to the newly mandated (with no consultation) one

councillor wards. The lack of thought put into naming the 11 wards disrespects the communities of the peninsula’s 42 towns and villages. The VEC has previously stated that single councillor wards are unsuitable for council’s like Mornington Peninsula. The panel is also contemplating splitting areas to have large population centres join with sparsely populated rural areas. This would create a disaster for these mainly farming areas - 70 per cent of the shire is in the green wedge zone - as the likelihood of a rural representative being elected in such a population imbalance would prove too difficult for most candidates, leaving the rural sector unrepresented. A councillor elected by large town populations would find it difficult to represent a small minority when prioritising services and projects, and in understanding rural issues. The panel has clearly not understood the peninsula and the cultural, demographic and geographical issues when naming wards in this forced and rushed exercise. The recommendations are crude and lack careful consideration and ignore democratic traditions and laws of fair distribution including the plus or minus 10 per cent "maximum" average variation in the number of voters in each ward. The naming of wards, which are

likely to remain for many years, received little consideration and the government should be ashamed that consultation was non-existent. The panel recognises that proper examination was not possible. Consideration of First Nations language names has been shelved, apart from several off-handed suggestions with no evidence provided of the historic or other meanings of the words, except if they were used by European pioneers. Altogether this is a cheap and nasty outcome based on political engineering to do with metropolitan councils in which Mornington Peninsula Shire is unfortunately caught up, as we are designated metro not rural by the state government. None of the choices for one councillor ward boundaries should be used but, as they are the options in the 11 ward scenario, then the option with least change keeps some integrity of mutual interest for our segmented communities. There is no apparent way of splitting the shire into 11 wards that improves the existing boundaries in the best interests of the general community, including small businesses and farmers. The naming of wards should be put on hold until properly investigated. * David Gill represents Red Hill Ward on Mornington Peninsula Shire Council, one of three single-councillor wards.

Candidate ‘inspired’ by Peta Murphy - PM By Anthony Albanese* THIS week I was back in Frankston to ask Jodie Belyea to be Labor’s candidate for Dunkley. Jodie is a local Frankston mum who has put her hand up after the late Peta Murphy’s passing. I know that for many of us, not just in the Labor family, but in the local community, the loss of Peta Murphy has been devastating. It meant a lot that Rod, Peta’s husband, joined us on Thursday at the Frankston Bowling Club to help launch Jodie’s campaign. Because of Peta’s work, Jodie Belyea was inspired to join the Labor Party. I’m proud that Jodie is working hard to continue Peta’s legacy. Peta Murphy was a fighter. Peta fought for this community every day and I know Jodie Belyea will too. Because this community deserves a strong, local voice. Jodie met Peta through her work for a not-forprofit organisation that supports local women doing it tough. I know Jodie will build on Peta’s legacy. Jodie will be a strong local voice for Dunkley and part of a government that is working every day to make lives better. We’re delivering responsible cost of living relief, with support for families, including cheaper child care, cheaper medicines, electricity bill relief, and making it cheaper and easier to see a doctor. My team has made it easier to see a doctor, with 19 more GPs now working in Dunkley We’ve taken the load off the local emergency department at Frankston hospital, with the opening of the Frankston Urgent Care Clinic. Already, 11,000 patients have been through its doors. And there are thousands of families paying less for their child care because of our cheaper child care initiative. Jodie studied and worked at Chisholm TAFE and community organisations like Anglicare. She’ll be part of a Government that is making record investments in vocational education and TAFE, so that locals can get the skills they need to get ahead and provide for their loved ones.

DUNKLEY candidate Jodie Belyea and Prime Minister Anthony Albanese in Frankston last week. Picture: Supplied Jodie also knows we’re working hard to make sure people can find a home of their own. Since the election, the Home Guarantee Scheme has helped more than 3,500 people in Melbourne’s south east and over 1,000 people in Mornington Peninsula into a home of their own. So, in the coming weeks, you’ll see Jodie Belyea out and about. Take the opportunity to have a chat with Jodie and hear a bit more about why she’s put her hand up to be the next Member for Dunkley and the newest member of my government. *Anthony Albanese is the Prime Minister of Australia

Majors choose Dunkley candidates Brodie Cowburn brodie@mpnews.com.au THE major parties have locked in their candidates for the Dunkley byelection. The death of sitting Labor MP Peta Murphy in December left the seat of Dunkley vacant. On Thursday 11 January, Prime Minister Anthony Albanese confirmed that Jodie Belyea would be Labor’s candidate and on Sunday the Liberal Party chose Frankston mayor Nathan Conroy as its candidate. Belyea is the founder of the Women’s Spirit Project, an organisation offering a free 11-week program for women who have experienced family violence, mental health issues, poverty, and unemployment. The program has run on the Mornington Peninsula and in Carrum.

Rod Glover, said Belyea would “continue to build on [Murphy’s] legacy”. “No two people are the same. But they do remind me of each other in that they are both fighters, they’re both strong advocates,” Albanese said. “Jodie is certainly not a career politician. She’s someone who, I think, is the right fit for this community to be a strong advocate.” Belyea told reporters on Thursday that she was “very fortunate to meet the late and great Peta Murphy through my work supporting women experiencing disadvantage through the Women’s Spirit Project”. “I am not going to necessarily be Peta, but I am going to lean into her legacy,” she said. “I have big shoes to fill, and over the next few weeks you are going to see me campaigning on the cost of living, health and medicare, and affordable housing.” Irish-born Conroy has been mayor of Frankston for three consecutive terms. He is an effective campaigner,

having been elected to council in 2020 comfortably ahead of his closest challenger. He said “it’s a privilege to serve as mayor of Frankston City. But there is so much more to be done to deliver for this community and that’s why I’ve put myself forward for Dunkley”. “I will always listen and I will work hard to ensure this community remains a wonderful place to live, work, raise a family and retire,” he said. “I wish it wasn’t in such sad circumstances. Peta Murphy was both fearless and tireless in advocating for her community.” If Conroy wins the by-election and resigns from council, a countback of the 2020 election results would be held to appoint a new councillor. After the new councillor is sworn in, councillors will convene to elect a new mayor. A date for the Dunkley by-election is yet to be anouncemed.

THE first quarterly community satisfaction survey for 2024 will be held across the Mornington Peninsula late this month and in early February. Residents will be phoned and visited door-to-door and asked to answer questions about Mornington Peninsula Council services by Metropolis Research. The outcome of the survey could influence the election campaigns and voters’ opinions of candidates in the October council elections. The elections will also be notable as the shire will be then have 11 singlecouncillor wards, with five new ward names being added to the existing six. The mayor Cr Simon Brooks said “feedback” from the survey was “integral” to how council services were delivered across the peninsula. A news release from the shire stated that survey “has been designed to assess our ongoing performance to identify areas of service improvement”. The 400 interviews in the 15-minute survey would be conducted with a “representative sample of residents”. Metropolis Research officers would carry an ID card and Metropolis Research shoulder bag and “will not enter your home, nor will they ask to use your toilet, ask for a drink”. “The survey will take up to 15-minutes to complete and we will use the feedback to assist us in improving our

services to the community,” the news release stated. Council’s decision to appoint Mertropolis followed two consecutive years of poor satisfaction survey results. This month’s survey comes on the heels of widespread opposition to councillors agreeing to allow an interactive Harry Potter-based event in the wildlife sanctuary at The Briars, Mount Martha and their debates over establishing a costly “transparency and integrity hub” (All clear for transparency hub, The News 8/1/24). The surveys which showed the poor results for the shire were made on behalf of the Department of Jobs, Precincts and Regions (Shire again misses survey satisfaction, The News 21/6/23). The results of the next four surveys - including the one starting this month – will be sent to the department for its annual municipal perfortmance report. The shire was rated at an “all-time low” in 2022, with the following survey registering an overall performance score of 50, three less than in the previous one. When appointing Metropolis in mid-2022 then mayor Cr Steve Holland said it was “simply a new provider using a slightly different methodology to do the same annual survey” (‘Satisfaction’ surveys start this week, The News 11/7/23).

Rallying cry to help Rosebud Hospital Liz Bell liz@mpnews.com.au A PUBLIC rally will be held in Rosebud next week to renew calls for the “urgent” redevelopment of the aging Rosebud Hospital. One of the organisers, long time hospital advocate since retiring at Rye, Sue Gilbert, said the redevelopment had become a “critical” issue for the southern peninsula, and there were fears the hospital could be forced to close if it deteriorated further. “If that happens, all the people and tourists that use the hospital will put extra pressure on Frankston, which just won’t be able to cope,” she said. “With the population increase on the peninsula and the summer crowds, the Rosebud Hospital is an essential service.” Gilbert said hospital staff worked under increasingly difficult conditions. In 2022, former Liberal candidate Matthew Guy promised $340 million for the hospital upgrades if the Coalition won government, but since Labor’s win little has happened. The hospital’s main buildings have not been redeveloped or expanded in nearly three decades and not all facilities meet current Australian standards. Committee for Frankston and Mornington Peninsula CEO Josh Sinclair said it was clear the hospital desperately needed upgrades. He said Peninsula Health was likely to join the committee this year and he would start discussions with its CEO. “It’s a priority for us and them,”

he said. Mornington Peninsula Shire Council has also been pushing for the upgrades. The mayor Cr Simon Brooks said the peninsula’s population had grown significantly and now had one of the largest populations of older residents in Victoria, plus 7.5 million visitors a year. He said the minimum 45 minutes to travel to Frankston Hospital for acute and emergency care put people’s lives at risk.

“Our community often has to travel all the way to Melbourne for specialist care,” he said. “Rosebud Hospital is highly valued by our community. It was the community that originally funded the hospital’s maternity ward, which was closed due to lack of anaesthetists available for surgery when needed. “ Nepean MP Sam Groth said he had tabled a 2500 signature petition in state parliament and was “100 per

cent” behind the redevelopment. “I have asked the Labor Health Minister to commit funding and am pushing it in parliament,” he said. Health Minister Mary Anne Thomas did not respond to requests for comment. Concerned residents can join the rally, which will be on Wednesday 24 January, at the eastern side entrance of the hospital, 1496 Point Nepean Road, Rosebud, from 10am to 2pm.

WHAT'S NEW...

World-standard golf heads to the peninsula IN the world of golf, the Webex Players Series has quickly emerged as a groundbreaking and unique initiative and, from January 24-28, it will be the Rosebud Country Club’s turn to again be at the forefront. Once again in 2024, Webex Players Series Victoria will not only showcase the skills of the professionals and leading amateurs but also send a powerful message about equality in the world of golf. Each Webex Players Series tournament, played over four rounds, is mixed-gendered, seamlessly blending the talents of leading men and women golfers with players tackling the same course, at the same time, vying for the same prize money purse. Once again in 2024, Webex Players Series Victoria, now in its fourth year, will not only showcase the skills of the professionals and leading amateurs, but also send a powerful message about equality in the world of golf. Last year, Korean Min A Yoon emerged as the event’s first woman champion, beating local favourite James Marchesani by a shot after 72 holes. The Rosebud tournament will be the third Webex Players Series event on the 2023/24 Challenger PGA Tour of Australasia and WPGA Tour of Australasia schedules following on from the debut Webex Players Series South Australia in Willunga last October and Webex Players Series Murray River at Cobram-Barooga. The Series' primary goal is to provide quality playing opportunities and pathways for Australia's next generation of men and

women professionals as they seek to make the move into the upper echelons of professional golf. One of the outstanding courses on the Mornington Peninsula, Rosebud Country Club serves as the perfect backdrop for the Webex Players Series Victoria. Surrounded by stunning landscapes and some of the state's best beaches, the course will see golfers having to negotiate tree-lined undulating fairways, some of the best greens in the country and a set of challenging par-3s. In addition to the professional tournament, elite juniors and All Ability golfers will join the action across the weekend, giving them the chance to experience “big time golf” first hand while continuing to develop their games. Entry is free for all spectators and for those seeking an immersive experience beyond the fairways, the CBCo 19th Hole is the place to be. A vibrant hub off the golf course offers spectators a chance to unwind with a pop-up bar, catering, and a live DJ. The CBCo 19th Hold ensures the excitement extends beyond the final putt and provides a place where golf enthusiasts and casual spectators alike can come together and celebrate the spirit of the Webex Players Services Victoria. For those seeking to enjoy the tournament from home, spectators can witness the action unfold live thanks to Fox Sports and KAYO. FORMER WINNERS: 2021 Brad Kennedy, 2022 Todd Sinnott, 2023 Min A Yoon.

THE EYES OF TAMMY FAYE

SEVEN, 10.40pm

The blistering, Oscar-winning performance of Jessica Chastain (pictured) as infamous televangelist Tammy Faye Messner humanises and demystifies an oftenmisunderstood figure in this well-made biopic. The film charts Tammy Faye’s early college days and fateful meeting with Jim Bakker (Andrew Garfield), as the pair rise to fame via the fledgling world of televangelism, eventually finding herself at odds with the church and her husband over her support for those stricken with AIDS.

BEAUTIFUL LAKES OF NORTHERN ITALY

SBS, 8.40pm

Ditch the travel agency and tune into this immersive travelogue. There’s quaint towns clinging to hills above turquoise water and velvety green mountains as well as smiling locals whipping up cheese and boats lolling about in the bay. The beauty of Northern Italy is on display, and after settling in for two immersive episodes, you may mistakenly believe you have actually set foot in the stunning region.

HER NAME IS NANNY NELLIE

SBS, 8.30pm

Almost a century after the Australian Museum commissioned three statues of Aboriginal people that were exhibited, half-naked and nameless, as evidence of what the national census declared “a dying race”, the family of Ngarigo woman Nanny Nellie Bungil Walker are taking steps to reclaim her identity and tell her story. Filmmaker Daniel King documents the efforts of his mother Aunty Irene Ridgeway (pictured) to honour her great-grandmother. Irene retraces Nellie’s life story in a show of inner strength.

Season two of this procedural continues with a double episode as the FBI fly team racks up twice the frequent flyer points: tackling cases in both Mallorca and Istanbul. First off, lead agent Forrester (Luke Kleintank, pictured) and the team venture inside the walls of a lavish estate to uncover who murdered the daughterin-law of a powerful millonaire, with a strong anti-capitalist message pervading the story. In the second episode, the team lands in Istanbul, where they get involved in a case with major ramifications for international relations between the US and Türkiye, after a former American marine is set up on smuggling charges. Of course, there’s a much larger conspiracy at play.

Council ‘a joke’ over Potter show secrecy What an absolute joke the Mornington Peninsula Shire Council has become (All clear for transparency hub and Thumbs down for Potter Performance, The News 9/1/24). Clearly, the planning for the Potter event has been underway for some time, shrouded in secrecy, involving details disclosed at a closed council meeting with councillors being asked to sign non-disclosure agreements. Many residents will be totally opposed to The Briars wildlife sanctuary being used in this manner, rightly so and no doubt the reason for the secrecy. If it was good enough for the people in Brussels to see what an impact this would have on the environment and have the proposed staging moved elsewhere, then surely enough residents here could, with organisation from Friends of the Briars and other like minded parties, force our council to go elsewhere. I for one will certainly sign the petition and join any protest march or other activity residents might organise to show how strong the feeling in our community is against the staging of this event at such an inappropriate venue. We do not need a lot of outsiders trampling over the undergrowth and disturbing our wildlife for a couple of hours entertainment, leaving their footprints behind, as is the case during the summer months. Our wildlife, what is left of it, is precious, their habitat must be protected, and they must feel safe in their environment. Beverley Treloar, Mornington

Jekyll and Hyde Mornington Peninsula Shire councillors are being shown as Jekyll and Hyde. On the one hand, local residents were kept in the dark about Warner Brothers’ plans to stage Harry Potter light shows in our beloved wildlife sanctuary at The Briars because councillors signed non-disclosure agreements (NDA). There was a complete lack of transparency and no community consultation (Thumbs down for Potter Performance, The News 9/1/24). On the other hand, the shire has plans for an accessible online “transparency and integrity hub” (All clear for transparency, The News 9/1/24). The shenanigans in council would make a good script for the next season of ABC’s Utopia. The strong local backlash towards staging the Harry Potter event in a precious wildlife sanctuary resulted in more than 16,000 people signing a change.org petition within a fortnight. As the opposition to this foolhardy decision grows, the councillors will be forced to explain not only why they signed an NDA but also why the event was kept top secret until Warner Brothers had begun selling tickets. Sarah Russell, Mount Martha

Transparency lacking To quote singer Alanis Morissette, “Isn’t it ironic?” Mornington Peninsula Shire councillors have just discovered “transparency” and are proposing a “transparency and integrity hub”, to provide the community with “curated information” after “cleansing” (All clear for transparency, The News 9/1/24). This comes to us after the total lack of transparency displayed by the “secret” negotiations with the Warner/Fever group to permit them to install the Harry Potter sound and light show inside The Briars wildlife sanctuary (Thumbs down for Potter Performance, The News 9/1/24). It is standard practice to have confidentiality/ non-disclosure agreements when council is discussing competitive tenders, such as if we need a new bridge, the three tenders are confidential, but the community knows we are working on getting a new bridge. Warners/Fever approached the shire. They decided on the location. There is no competition, just seeking permission and negotiating a price. The financials may be kept confidential but the event itself should be public knowledge. Why were all our councillors gagged on this and all council staff put under a cone of silence? Fever PR chaps would have loved the extra

publicity. It seems this gag order may have been pushed by Mornpen executives to keep the community out because they knew this bad decision would attract huge backlash, as it has done. I cannot think of another logical reason. Transparency and Integrity, I don’t think so. Apart from Cr David Gill, our councillors have all bowed to Mornpen executives and signed up. Those that negotiated this deal perhaps were not the ideal people to negotiate with a powerful multinational entertainment group. The councillors have failed dismally in their duty to the community. When you hide something, the truth will eventually come out and bite you. David Mason, Mount Martha

Inappropriate location My family has been enjoying the magical creatures at The Briars wildlife sanctuary for years. We’ve watched in wonder at the abundant water birdlife, marvelled at echidnas pottering about, and even seen an emu with her chicks. Even though we adore the Harry Potter stories, we were shocked to learn that there will be a large corporate sound and light “Forbidden Forest” experience occurring within the sanctuary (Thumbs down for Potter Performance, The News 9/1/24). Not only is the location inappropriate for 2000 people a night and the sales of unnecessary plastic merchandise, but it poses larger questions: why does it take money-making “entertainment” to encourage folk to enjoy a forested area? And what will it take for us to value nature for the precious wonder that it is? It’s heartening that more than 17,000 people have signed a petition requesting that the location of this event be changed. Wildlife and the environment are essential to life - they must be valued and prioritised. Amy Hiller, Kew

Flowers, not Potter The flowering gums are in bloom, and these days you can get any colour. Wouldn’t it be lovely to see Mornington with those beautiful orange coloured flowering gums along our nature strips? Could Mornington Peninsula Shire Council, instead of going behind our backs and organising a loud and bright Harry Potter event in the middle of The Briars sanctuary, provide us with trees such as this for, say, $10 each, so we could plant them outside our homes and bring back our native birds? Wendy Doyle, Mornington

Uphold shire principles When I first heard of this [Harry Potter] “performance” [at The Briars, Mount Martha] I thought it was one of these hoaxes one hears about being spread on the so-called social media. Perhaps even a scam to get people to pay for tickets for a non-existent event. Thousands of people traipsing through a wildlife sanctuary at night, with lights and sound, for two months. Come on, who would believe that? Maybe something dreamed up by a shire employee but no way a highly educated CEO I thought would do anything other than laugh at the preposterous suggestion. Then I saw a reference to councillors signing a non-disclosure agreement, a master stroke by the hoax perpetrators. Who would think a shire with a public transparency policy would tolerate that? The policy states: The shire considers transparency a cornerstone of democratic governance. Openness, accountability and honesty are essential for fully informed engagement in the democratic process. Now I am gob smacked to find that it is not a hoax or a scam. So, wildlife is not a part of our “unique characteristics”? The Briars is not part of our way of life? Neither is to be valued and protected? I read that those [two] councillors who declined to sign the NDA are “frozen out of the ongoing negotiations”. Is that compatible with democratic governance? Is this a fait accompli or can it be stopped? If it cannot be stopped, how will those ratepay-

ers who care for our peninsula react at the next election? I know how I will react. What of the CEO’s contract when it comes up for renewal? Might the state government begin to wonder if our shire is departing from its principles? Dickson Dalgleish, Mount Eliza

Outstanding questions Once implemented, at a great cost to us the ratepayers, it is not clear to me if I will be able to find out an answer to my questions on Mornington Peninsula Shire’s proposed transparency and integrity hub (All clear for transparency, The News 9/1/24). What is the term of the current very inadequate road drainage contractor? Is there an open tender when the contract expires? Can I find out about work performances and met key targets? Who from the shire’s officers supervises the work and sees that it meets engineering and construction standards? How long do we the ratepayers have to put up with poor performances and shire dissatisfaction? Oh yes, let’s have another survey until we get an answers that suits us. Shire officers at a cost of hundreds of thousands of dollars a year have no business running year after year a dissatisfied and underperforming council, they should be gone. Let’s put in place can-do people, with open tenders, who have the interest of the shire at heart. Gerard van de Ven, Mount Martha

Provide information I would not have had a clue about the lack of transparency surrounding briefing papers given to Mornington Peninsula Shire officers were it not for The News (‘Transparent’ council Take 2, 12/12/23). The transparency fight by electors has been going on for the 23 years I have lived here. Transparency: give us what we want when we want it and do not force expensive FOI processes to thwart us. Had some councillors for some unknown reason voted no, we, the electors, would not have been denied access to the innocuous briefing papers in the first place and the issue would not have exploded. Now, a councillor who voted no on presenting this innocuous information puts forth a “transparency hub” proposal like Frankston has with development costs of possibly more than $300,000 and yearly maintenance costs of $100,000. I painstakingly, after several attempts, found out how the system worked and only then got what Frankston Council wanted to give me. Have councillors or the officers putting this forward spent any time evaluating this site and tried to get answers to tough questions? All this information could be provided on the current shire site and AI should be used to help you get the answer you are looking for (if you are allowed to have it). I wonder if contentious briefing papers would be available? I’ll be sending my thoughts to councillors directly as some do not bother to read the local paper or the letters of electors. Joe Lenzo, Safety Beach

position spokesperson Jonathan Duniam, taking his cues from Mr No, Dutton, claims that “you can’t trust Labor to get energy policy right”. Senator Duniam has been in parliament long enough to know that the Coalition government, of which he was a member, achieved absolutely nothing in energy policy in its nine years of government, so it is hypocritical of him to criticise Labor for actually having plans whilst having the temerity of trying to protect the environment at the same time. Do us a favour Senator Duniam, instead of the childish carping, how about outlining the Coalition’s comprehensive plan for our energy future, or do you need another nine years to come up with something? Dr Ross Hudson, Mount Martha

Find an alternative It is pleasing that federal environment minister Tanya Plibersek has intervened to protect the Ramsar wetlands of Western Port from new development (Federal veto a blow to terminal plans, The News 13/1/24). However, the Victorian government’s commitment “to overturning the federal veto” is disappointing. Western Port’s wetlands have been under siege from energy projects in recent times, and locals are weary from defending them. The proposed AGL gas import terminal was stopped in 2021 by then planning minister Richard Wynne on environmental grounds and the latest project is no different. The same is true of the ridiculous coal to hydrogen project which also proposes to export from Western Port. Reporting by The News on these projects has been consistent and influential over the years, although the intervention of the Coalition environment minister Sussan Ley was not forthcoming. Australia cannot ignore its offshore wind potential. The global wind atlas shows that we have some of the strongest and most reliable offshore wind in the world. Finding the environmentally optimal pathway to tap into offshore wind, as 13 OECD countries have done, is our next big challenge. The Port of Geelong’s plans to develop a “wind farm hub” is the obvious way forward. A Ramsar wetland is not. Ray Peck, Hawthorn

Link not liked Friday 12 January 11am, Peninsula Link northbound. A warm sunny day in holiday time, and everyone’s driving somewhere. So, Peninsula Link decided to cause a traffic jam. Both lanes were crawling stop/start for about two kilometres from Arthur’s Seat to Jetty Road, Rosebud. Why? Why? Because the roadside weeds needed spraying immediately. And one lane had to be closed. Warwick Spinaze, Tootgarook

Candidate’s views

The veto of the Western Port wind terminal project by the federal government is disappointing but not the end of the world (Federal veto a blow to terminal plans, The News 13/1/24). Modifications can be made to make the project environmentally acceptable. Equally disappointing, and predictable, was the Liberal Party response. Op-

The Dunkley by-election has begun with the announcement of the Labor Party’s candidate, Jodie Belyea (Dunkley poll a test for Labor got, The News 12/1/24). Of course she commits herself to solving the cost of living crisis, heath and Medicare and social housing. But she must tell the people of Dunkley why the Albanese government has been completely absorbed by the Voice to Parliament referendum and not the cost of living and housing shortage which landlords are taking full advantage of and increasing their rents to make bigger profits. I await her policy on Australia Day being held on 26 January. Russell Morse, Karingal

100 YEARS AGO THIS WEEK...

Public meeting called - Parents of Ella Morgan deeply grateful Compiled by Cameron McCullough AS suggested by a correspondent in the last issue of “The Standard,” a movement has been initiated to give public recognition of the bravery of Bryan Lane, Colin Robinson and Ray Coxall, who were instrumental in saving persons from drowning at Frankston recently. In another column Cr. W. P. Mason invites the residents to attend a public meeting, to be held at the Shire Hall, Frankston, on Monday next, at 8pm, to discuss the matter. Yesterday Mrs. Morgan, the mother of the young lady, who was rescued by Bryan Lane and Colin Robinson, called at “The Standard” office, and expressed to the Editor her keen desire to express appreciation of the bravery of the lads named. When advised that Cr. Mason had convened a public meeting to discuss the matter, she indicated that she and her husband would be delighted to co-operate in any movement designed to recognise the outstanding heroism of the boys named. *** IT is pleasing to note that Senior Constable Cullane has been able to resume duty after some weeks’ incapacitation, owing to his wound. This paper hastens to congratulate him upon his recovery, as we know does all people of the district, to whom the Senior’s uniform courtesy and kindly bearing has endeared him. We wish him a long and useful life, with no more happenings of this kind to mar his useful public life. *** MR. and Mrs. R. S. Lamont and family, of Essendon, are again spending

their summer holidays at Frankston, having taken “Green Gables,” Long Island, for a couple of months. *** THE many friends of the late Police Sergeant W. H. McCormack, formerly stationed at Frankston, will be pleased to learn that Millie McCormack, the talented young singer, who carried off the Entrance Scholarship at the Albert Hall Conservatorium last year, has made good use of the opportunities afforded. This had been proved at the recent examinations where she has gained honors in piano. *** AT the Council meeting on Friday a largely signed petition was presented, pointing out the damage done by careless campers on the foreshore and reserves. The Boy Scouts’ methods are an object lesson to many careless campers. A largely signed joint letter from residents in the vicinity of Mile Bridge was read at last Friday’s Council meeting. They stated that they viewed with increasing alarm the increasing practice of parties of people camping on the foreshore and reserves of the district without permission of the Council. This, they said, constituted a grave nuisance, and was a menace to the ratepayers’ health and property. It was requested that the Council tighten up the by-laws, and make the regulations effective. The petitioners asked to be advised of the name of the Council’s officer responsible for enforcing the by-laws. The complaints were enumerated as follows:

1. Absence of notice boards forbidding camping. 2. Danger from fire. 3. No sanitary arrangements. 4. Decomposition of food and animal matter. 5. Millions of flies are attracted to such suitable breeding places, and act as carriers of filth and disease. 6. After a camp there is always a litter left about, consisting of tins, papers, bottles, and other disgusting matter. 7. Mixed sexes are often camped together, which is detrimental to the moral standing of the district. Cr. Mason moved that the Council’s solicitor be instructed to frame a by-law prohibiting camping on the foreshore or public reserves, and that petitioners be notified of the action taken. Cr. McCulloch seconded. He noticed several camps at Seaford, and there seemed to be an absence of sanitary conveniences and precautions. There were a lot of foreshore bailiffs at Seaford. He was one himself, but no one seemed to exercise supervision over the camps. Notices should be posted up warning people against fire, and prohibiting camping. Cr. Howell said the Council wanted to be careful not to be too stringent, and thus prohibit day motor parties. Cr. Mason advocated the erection of open fire-places on the reserves for the use of picnic parties. The motion was carried. *** AN accident of a painful character happened to Albert Addicott, 23years, on Saturday last.

Whilst cutting firewood at his father’s factory he had the misfortune to get his right hand severely cut by a circular saw. He was at once taken to Dr. Johnson, who, after bandaging the injured hand, ordered his removal to the Alfred Hospital, where, we understand, he is doing as well as can be expected. It is not yet known whether he will lose the use of any of his fingers, but it is hoped he will not. This paper extends its sympathy with the family, who have had the misfortune to have the father at present incapacitated with a broken arm. *** The death of Mr. Morris removes from the scene a well known identity of Langwarrin. He possessed that easy style, so typical of the popular railway official. Two of his sons are clergymen, and a third is an engineer. Truly cosmopolitan by nature, the old gentleman’s home was a popular weekend resort for many city friends, and one could meet a trainer’s son who had ridden a Melbourne Cup winner, a lady vocalist, or elocutionist, a Government expert, or a lay preacher on circuit duty. He had no fears for the future, even as he visibly declined in health. His cheery nature saw the silver lining in every cloud. He passed away at Dunolly, where he was buried. It was a district he dearly loved, and over his tomb might one write R. L. Stevenson’s words: “This be the verse you grave for me, Here he lies where he longed to be.” ***

THE frank statement of Cr. Unthank (president of Frankston and Hastings Shire) must surely remove any lingering doubts in the minds of citizens as to the wisdom of the Council’s action in installing the “Fecto” disinfector. This paper’s columns are always open to ventilate the views of citizens of the town, and especially for the purpose of assisting helpful criticism. The facts disclosed by the President simply show that, after full deliberation, and after the scientific and invaluable advice of Dr. Neilson, and the practical counsel of Dr. Merrilees, it was decided, in the interests of the health of the townspeople and visitors, to take every reasonable precaution to safeguard the health of the citizens of the town. The recent hot spell must have made abundantly clear the necessity of some action being taken, and the Council is to be commended for its promptness. Necessitas non habet legem. There were evidently in our midst people quite prepared to discuss – evidently supremely ignorant of the imminent risk to health – the merits and demerits of different and, possibly, effective machines. To them may we remark that Nero fiddled while Rome burned. As the President truly said, “The clock of progress (as far as Frankston was concerned) might surely have been put back for a number of years” had any serious epidemic broken out at the time the town was thronged with holiday residents and pleasure seekers. *** From the pages of the Frankston and Somerville Standard, 16 & 18 Jan 1924

Two-day cricket returns after Christmas By Brodie Cowburn

PROVINCIAL

MPCA CRICKET returned after the Christmas break on Saturday. The first day of two-day matches were played across the peninsula. At Bruce Park, the travelling Red Hill are off to a good start against Heatherhill. Red Hill batted all day long on Saturday. An excellent middle order partnership between Will Cooper and Andy Restein helped them reach a final total of 9/177. Restein scored 50 from 79 deliveries. Cooper played an important supporting role, scoring 33 from 140 deliveries. Heatherhill’s Brett Maxwell was the pick of the bowlers. He took 4/35 from 19 overs, wiping out most of the top and middle order. At Peninsula Grammar, Old Peninsula will start day two at 2/33 chasing 140 to win. Old Peninsula hosted Sorrento on Saturday. The Sharks batted first and put 140 runs on the board before being sent back to the sheds. Despite losing a couple of wickets before stumps, the Pirates are in a strong position heading into day two. Pines set Langwarrin a target of 172 to score to win at Lloyd Park on Saturday. Long Island was bowled out for just 123 by Baden Powell last weekend - Baden Powell scored 10 runs before stumps.

PENINSULA

MORNINGTON are well on their way to picking up a win against Moorooduc. Alexandra Park hosted the two sides for the first day of a two-day match on Saturday. Mornington chose to bowl first, and had an immediate impact. Moorooduc openers Thusith Silva and Raymond Curry were both sent back to the sheds without scoring a run. They were two of five

ducks taken during Moorooduc’s innings. Skipper Benjamin Williams did his best to stop the damage for his side. He scored 36 from 70. Moorooduc was eventually bowled out for 121 after just 43 overs. Mornington made a good dent in their target before stumps. They will start day two from 2/72. Dromana scored a mammoth 271 runs against Rosebud on Saturday. Somerville have also set their opponents a huge target to chase - the Eagles scored 7/232 against Mt Eliza. Seaford Tigers set Baxter a score of 194 to score to win at Belvedere Reserve.

DISTRICT

BALNARRING set Crib Point a big target to chase down on Saturday. Crib Point played host to the two-

day match. Balnarring won the toss, chose to bat first, and did some serious damage on their opponent’s home turf. Skipper Luke Hewitt, Jake Hewitt, and Xavier Warmbrunn each scored half centuries for Balnarring. Mark Walles also scored 45. Balnarring was bowled out for 242 shortly before stumps. Crib Point survived an over before the end of the day, scoring three runs in the process. Carrum had a good day at home last weekend. They scored 239 runs against Flinders. Josh Dent and Gus Kennedy each scored 50 runs for Carrum - Dent’s knock came off 96 deliveries, and Kennedy’s was from 189. Jarrad Lymer limited the damage for Flinders. His 5/81 from 29 overs saved his side from disaster.

SUB DISTRICT

TOOTGAROOK made life difficult for Ballam Park on Saturday. After putting 229 runs on the board, Tootgarook sent Ballam Park in to bat.

Ballam Park batted for 18 overs, and had a miserable time. Ballam Park collapsed to 4/30 before the close of play. They face a huge uphill mountain to climb next week to get anything from the two-day matchup. At Skye Reserve, Skye lost two late wickets in their match against Pearcedale. Batting first, Pearcedale scored 9/186 before declaring. Skye had to face two overs before stumps. It proved a prosperous two overs for Pearcedale. Skye fell to 2/12, and will need to regain some momentum on day two to get back in contention. Frankston YCW was bowled out for 228 on Saturday by Hastings. With nine overs to bat before stamps, Hastings made good ground. They scored 0/30 before the end of the day. Tyabb scored 221 runs against Boneo last weekend. Mt Martha also posted a big total, scoring 216 against Rye.

WOMENS

DELACOMBE Park completed an

impressive run chase against Tyabb on Sunday, as MPCA women’s cricket returned after the holiday break. Tyabb chose to bat first, and put 100 runs on the board in their 30 overs. A brilliant partnership between Trish Hawkins and Melissa Newham got Delacombe Park over the line. At 3-5 they came in and carried their side to victory. Hawkins scored an unbeaten 37 and Newham scored an unbeaten 28. Delacombe Park hit the winning runs with seven wickets to spare and five overs left to play. A knock of 71 not out by Sarah Norris helped Crib Point pick up a good win over Seaford Tigers on Sunday. The Magpies batted first, and scored 174 runs from their 30 overs. The Tigers only managed to score 109 in reply. Balnarring scored a comprehensive ten wicket win over Somerville at home last weekend. Jemma Reynolds scored 64 not out with the bat and took a wicket as well. Rye recorded a forfeit win over Flinders, and Tooradin had a bye.

Langwarrin signs Takahashi SOCCER

By Craig MacKenzie LANGWARRIN has agreed terms with Japanese defender/midfielder Ryo Takahashi. The 23-year-old has been signed from current Singapore Premier League champion Albirex Niigata. Takahashi and his Niigata teammates denied ex-Langwarrin and Socceroo star Bailey Wright from celebrating a league title in his first season in Singapore as Wright’s club Lion City Sailors finished runner-up. Playing primarily at right back Takahashi made 19 appearances for Albirex Niigata last season scoring three goals and being credited with assists for two others. He became a free agent on 1 January and recently concluded successful negotiations with Langy businessman and major sponsor Greg Kilner. Takahashi arrived over a week ago and after two training sessions played in last weekend’s hitout against Goulburn Valley Suns in Shepparton. He is from Tokyo and was promoted to FC Tokyo’s J1 League senior squad in 2018. He also played for Tokyo University before signing a one-year deal with Niigata last January. Takahashi is expected to play in midfield for Langwarrin. “Initial contact with Ryo wasn’t through Bailey but once we heard about him we obviously went through Bailey when we did our background check,” Langwarrin head coach Jamie Skelly said. NPL rules allow a club to have up to four visa players as long as at least one is from the Asian Football Confederation. Langy’s current visas are Jin Jeong, Archie Macphee, Tom Youngs and Rogan McGeorge. Adding Takahashi to that list potentially presents Skelly with a tough decision if Macphee’s application for permanent residency isn’t granted before Tuesday 6 February. That’s the deadline set by Football Victoria for lodgement of final squads for this season’s renamed VPL1 competition. Skelly wants to keep all five players but that’s in the hands of Immigration. “We’re also potentially bringing in one or two more but we’re very close now to finalising the squad,” Skelly added. “It would only happen if the name of someone significant came up who would improve the squad.”

Skelly also has signed 19-year-old winger Dante Avian from Brunswick City. Avian is a product of Melbourne City’s academy. Takahashi and Avian’s first outing as Langwarrin players went well with the visitors to John McEwen Reserve in Shepparton running out impressive 3-1 victors on Saturday. MacPhee, Youngs and Allen Dzemidzic scored for Langwarrin. However last week wasn’t all about signings as Langy said farewell to defender Jaiden Madafferi. A number of tributes to the defender were posted on social media when news broke that he had chosen to step away from the sport. “I left on my own terms,” Madafferi said. “I’m just not feeling it at the moment and I’ve decided to take some time off. “I want people to know that just in case the stories get mixed up.” Meanwhile this Saturday the focus of the local game switches to Lawton Park and the 11th official staging of the annual Steve Wallace Cup. The event commemorates the life

of local soccer icon Stephen William Wallace who was 54 years old when he died on 19 July 2011 and was a former Langwarrin player, coach, president, life member, club council representative and Bayside League referee. COVID-19 rules impacted on the event in 2022 and forced a series of one-off 90-minute games so no winner was declared but the tournament returned to a more familiar format last year with the host club winning the trophy for the third time. However Langwarrin has a way to go to match the feat of Mornington who won the tournament five years in a row. Previous Wallace Cup winners are: Casey Comets 2013; Mornington 2014, 2015, 2016, 2017, 2018; Moreland Zebras 2019; Langwarrin 2020, 2021, 2023. Here is this year’s draw with matches on pitch 1 (top pitch) and pitch 2 (main pitch): 11am Mount Eliza v Seaford Utd (pitch 2) 11.45am Peninsula Strikers v Somerville Eagles (pitch 1), Skye Utd v Baxter (pitch 2) 12.30pm Frankston Pines v Mount

maris, Dallas Brooks Park Saturday 17 February, v. Nunawading City, Dallas Brooks Park Saturday 25 February, v. Knox City, Dallas Brooks Park Friday 1 March, v. Boroondara-Carey Eagles, Dallas Brooks Park Last weekend a number of preseason friendlies featured local clubs. Here are the results: Langwarrin U23s 8 (Jed Hagenaars 3, Even Bowles 2, Jack Geddes, Kyle Eichenberger, Jaylen Faithfull) Skye Utd 1 (Noah Musso); Rosebud 1 (Davis Markulin) Somerville Eagles 4 (Marcus Anastasiou 2, Jake Meggs, Conor McFall); Seaford Utd 0 Monash Villareal 5. Skye head coach Phil McGuinness offered a blunt assessment of his team’s 8-1 mauling: “We were absolutely murdered,” he said. “We had a team full of trialists and they battered us for 90 minutes.” At Olympic Park on Friday evening State 4 side Somerville proved too strong for its State 5 host. The match was played in three 30-minute periods due to the heat. The first period found both teams moving the ball around well showing an eagerness to play out from the back. Marcus Anastasiou broke the deadlock when a Conor Mcfall diagonal found him one-on-one with Rosebud keeper Colin McCormack and despite being on a tight angle Somerville’s top scorer made no mistake with a low strike to make it 1-0. Within minutes of the kick-off to the second period Somerville went further ahead after an inswinging Mcfall corner found an unmarked Jake Meggs who volleyed his attempt past McCormack. In the final period Anastasiou grabbed his second when he got on the end of a brilliant pass from Tom Simmons and lobbed McCormack to make it 3-0. Minutes later a tiring Rosebud failed to deal with Somerville’s press and a cheap turnover proved costly when Mcfall beat an opponent then smashed the ball home from the edge of the area to make it 4-0. Rosebud refused to give in and created a series of great chances only to be denied by Somerville custodian Nick Bucello. The ’Buds kept at it and were rewarded late in the contest when Davis Markulin got free at the back post and headed home to complete the scoreline.

Mercedes team shine at celebrity pro-am AFTER a ten-year hiatus the Peninsula Sotheby’s Portsea Celebrity Pro Am made a huge comeback in 2023, winning Metropolitan Pro Am of the Year at the Victorian Golf Industry Awards. A major event on the PGA Tour of Australasia’s Golfing Calendar, the 2024 event was also touted as one of the best social outings of the summer. Proceedings kicked off on 2 January where a crowd of 320 filled the Continental Sorrento. The room included familiar names across the sporting, celebrity and corporate worlds. Pommery champagne, Stone and Wood, and Sticks wines were flowing throughout, as attendees dialled in their arcade skills, winning Swisse gummy products from the Swisse Claw Machine. The night raised over $10,000 for the Sorrento CFA, as Rob Curtain from naming rights sponsor Peninsula Sotheby’s auctioned a TaylorMade club fitting experience; an MGI AI buggy; and a Mornington Peninsula experience – which included a weekend in a Mercedes Benz, courtesy of Mercedes Benz Mornington, accommodation and dining at the Continental Sorrento, and rounds of golf in carts at Portsea. On the Wednesday, Lucas Higgins, drawn in the Higgins Coatings group, shot six under for

the best score in the morning. There was drama throughout, as lightning almost bought the event to a standstill, however some luck meant that play could continue. No one could claim Crown’s $100,000 hole in one on the seventh hole, however the 450 strong in White Top’s marquee were still entertained by a star-studded field of professionals and celebrities, which included Andy Lee holing a 25-foot putt and bringing the crowd to its feet. The professional event was won by New South Welshman Darcy Boyd, who holed a six footer on the 18th to sign for seven under par and avoid a playoff with Lucas Higgins and Tom Power Horan who finished at six under. Darcy played with winning amateur and Port Adelaide hero Dan Houston who coolly signed for 42 points, which meant that Chris Thoday and the Mercedes Benz Mornington team not only bought home two winners, but also took home the team event, making it a clean sweep. The Portsea Golf Club are once again contenders for Pro-Am of the year for 2024 while already developing plans for the 2025 event. Winning feeling: Geoffrey Quirk, Darcy Boyd, Daniel Houston and Chris Thoday. Picture: Supplied

Family fun and a serious run at Rye Gift By Barry Irving THE Rye Gift continues to go from strength to strength as crowds flock back to the family day after Covid. This year we were blessed with cooler weather ideal for an athletic carnival. A couple of sprinkles of light rain, but there were no complaints from the runners. Again there were many compliments from the competitors and the Victorian Athletic League officials with regards to the preparation of the running surfaces. Thanks once again to the Mornington Peninsula Shire team of contractors who prepared an excellent surface. The Junior Gift was conducted by the Little Athletics Southern Peninsula that was well attended by both junior competitors and supporting families. Giant slide and face painting ensured that families were catered for. With the canteens and the hamburger stand serving drinks and food. All six local junior and senior Rye Sports and social Clubs members competed in junior and senior community relays with the equipment related to their respective sports. urged on by the very vocal crowd. More than 80 sponsors and supporters attended the annual sponsor’s luncheon cooked and served by the cricket club volunteers. Senior Manger Fiona Somjee and staff represented the major sponsor from Community Bank Southern Peninsula, along with Antonella Celi representing the Shire. Onto the gift where last years winners both men’s and women’s found the pace really hot with neither able to reach the finals in two very hot fields in which both had blanket finishes with placegetters separated by hundreds of seconds.
