Giant spider crabs time their run for safety HUNDREDS of thousands of giant spider crabs are about to begin their annual migration into the sandy shallows at Rye and Blairgowrie. The armada of orange crabs arrives as the bay’s waters begin to cool in May and stays until July. Marine biologist Sheree Marris said that, as the name suggests, these crabs are massive, with long spindly legs and bodies up to 17cm wide. “They move in organised chaos on eight long legs,” she said. “Their weapons are swollen claws and their mission is to seek shelter in the safety of the shallows, moult and, in some cases, mate.” Like most crustaceans, the crabs’ hard armour protected them but didn’t allow them to grow. “They need to get rid of the old armour and grow a bigger one,” Ms Marris said. The crabs secrete an enzyme that separates the old shell from the underlying skin, while a new soft paper-like shell grows beneath the old one. They then absorb seawater and swell up, causing the old shell to open up like a lid allowing the crab to extract itself. “Once one crab starts to moult it sets off a chain reaction and the rest of the orange-clad army moult almost simultaneously,” Ms Marris said. “Moulting allows the crabs to grow and helps rid them of parasites and other animals growing on their shells, including bacteria that can weaken and erode their protective uniform.” It is thought that by aggregating and moulting together, the crabs have less chance of getting eaten: it’s a simple case of safety in numbers. However, during this moulting process, the soft crabs are vulnerable to the mouths of hungry hunters. Stephen Taylor

Parties unite over power Keith Platt THE Port of Hastings is being seen as an integral link in supplying liquid hydrogen to Japan. The hydrogen, produced from brown coal in the Latrobe Valley, will go overseas while the CO2 released in the process is planned to be stored under the Gippsland Basin using carbon capture and storage (CCS) technology. Details of a $496 million four-year pilot project announced last Thursday



(12 April) have been hailed by both the Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull and Premier Daniel Andrews. However, even if the pilot is successful, full scale exports of hydrogen will not start until sometime after 2030. The project has seen the federal Liberal-National and Victorian Labor governments pledge $100 million for the $496 million pilot project. The rest of the money will come from a Japanese government-led business consortium of Kawasaki Heavy Industries, J-Power, Iwatani Corporation and Marubeni.

Under the HESC (Hydrogen Energy Supply Chain) plan announced last week hydrogen gas will be trucked to a plant at Hastings to be liquefied (by “super cooling”) and loaded onto a ship to be taken to Kobe, Japan. The process is the reverse of that planned by AGL which wants to have a floating LNG terminal at Crib Point to convert gas imports. Mr Turnbull said it was “amazing to think that brown coal from Victoria is going to be keeping the lights on in Japan". Kawasaki has estimated hydrogen

The timeline outlined in the HESC would see work start next year on constructing the “pilot facilities” with operations beginning in 2020 and run for about one year. A decision on the plan’s commercial viability would be made “in the 2020s” with actual production “targeted in the 2030s depending on the successful completion of the pilot phase, regulatory approvals, social licence to operate and hydrogen demand”.

However, reservations are being expressed despite the predictions of jobs at Hastings and in the Latrobe Valley and hydrogen from brown coal making Australia a major player in the world’s energy supply network. Mornington Peninsula Shire councillor Hugh Fraser, a keen advocate of lowering emissions that effect climate change, says the capture of carbon and its disposal “remains problematic and appears to have conveniently and glibly been put to one side as a future problem to solve”.

Mornington News

17 April 2018



Supermarkets move to give bags the boot Stephen Taylor SUPERMARKET shoppers are beginning a speedy transition towards a plastic-bag-free shopping environment. Major players Coles and Woolworths in Mornington will phase out single use plastic bags from 20 June. Customers who don’t bring their own bags will be able to buy alternatives, including thicker reusable plastic bags for 15 cents, canvas bags for 99 cents or chiller bags for $2.49. The move affects customers at Coles and Woollies’ supermarkets, liquor stores, petrol stations and mini-marts. The companies announced the move 12 months ago. It will especially please environmentalists, such as the various beach cleaning groups, who say the bags are among the most commonly collected litter items. Across Australia more than 3.2 billion single-use plastic bags are handed out by Woolworths each year. “We feel very strongly this is the right thing to do, and that together with our customers we can help create a greener future for Australia,” company CEO Brad Banducci said. “Our teams have been working hard behind the scenes to accelerate the rollout of this plan so we can start making a positive impact on the environment

as quickly as possible. “We know this is a big change for our customers and store teams, and we need to do all we can to make the transition as seamless as possible for both.” He said staff had been talking to customers about the bag ban since the date was confirmed in February. “Prominent” in-store signage was also part of the campaign. Mt Martha IGA co-owner Rod Allen said his store was “leaning towards getting on board [the bag ban] as soon as soon as possible” – probably before the 1 July deadline. He said staff now routinely asked customers at the check-out whether they had their own bags, and that signs in-store promoted the use of envirobags. “It’s all about changing the culture and phasing the plastic bags out in a timely manner,” he said. “I was initially reluctant to jump in until the public became more informed. “Now I am thinking we may go in May and have a countdown. “Whatever happens we will have our own range of bags instore for customers to purchase.” Coles began removing single-use plastic bags this month in certain stores, and will ban them completely by 1 July. South Australia, Tasmania, Northern Territory and ACT have al-

ready banned them. Coles’ re-usable Better Bags at 15c are made from 80 per cent recycled material and are fully recyclable through the RedCycle bins in stores. “[The ban] is the right thing to do for the environment,” Coles managing director John Durkan said. Coles’ reusable bags were designed by school children to raise funds for Clean Up Australia, Little Athletics Australia, SecondBite and Guide Dogs Australia. They include a shoulder bag, chiller bag, tote and jute bag. The first series will go on sale from World Environment Day, 5 June. The move to ban bags is backed by Planet Ark and the Boomerang Alliance. CEO Paul Klymenko said they were a “huge problem for the environment: they don’t breakdown in landfill and require significant resources to manufacture in the first place”, he said. “Experiences in the UK and Ireland have shown a small charge on plastic bags can reduce their use by up to 85 per cent, and are confident this can happen in Australia, too.” Boomerang Alliance director Jeff Angel said the community wanted action on the alarming growth of plastic pollution. “It is gratifying to see retailers like Woolworths and Coles moving on plastic bags to help save our oceans and wildlife, with … bags in the top three dangers of ingestion and entanglement of marine life.”

Pods trial at Pt Nepean PARKS Victoria is inviting feedback on three designs versions of “eco sleeper pods” being displayed at Point Nepean National Park. The pods are seen as being suitable for overnight or short-stay accommodation. Parks wants visitors to comment on the design, amenity, accessibility and visual impact of the pods. The pilot pods include styles with and without kitchens and bathrooms, as well as fully self-sufficient “off grid” models with electricity and water.

The pods will be at Point Nepean until July and can be seen from 10.30am – 2.30pm Thursday to Monday until 30 April. The pods have been designed by JAWS Architects + Pod Matrix and Troppo Architects + Oscar Building, using sustainable practices and materials.

Have your say: Proposed 2018/19 Budget

2018 is the final year of the Anzac Centenary, a milestone of special significance that marks 100 years since our involvement in WWI. On Wednesday 25 April, commemorative services and remembrance marches will be held across the peninsula to acknowledge those who served in the war.

We recently placed the Proposed 2018/2019 Budget on exhibition and are welcoming community submissions until 26 April. Our proposed 2018/19 Budget has been developed to reflect the priorities identified by our local community members, deliver projects and initiatives that address their needs, and support the strategic objectives that underpin our Council Plan: our place, our connectivity, our prosperity and our wellbeing. In addition to delivering a host of vital community services, the Proposed Budget incorporates ongoing service and infrastructure upgrades that support public amenity, emphasise health and wellbeing outcomes, and improve shared spaces including road networks, parks and streetscapes. We’re determined to work efficiently towards realising our vision of a Mornington Peninsula that is a thriving, accessible and inclusive place for the whole community and encourage you to provide feedback to Council so that we can ensure the final Budget reflects the diverse needs of all who call the peninsula home. 1300 850 600

Supported Playgroups

To help our community reduce green waste around their homes, on 27–29 April Shire residents and ratepayers can dispose of green waste free of charge at our Resource Recovery Centres in Rye, Tyabb and Mornington. Proof of residency is required and deliveries will be accepted from residential vehicles and trailers only. Due to popularity, delays are expected at peak times – visit our Tyabb site to avoid queues. Please note: our Mornington facility accepts maximum 3m³ of green waste per trip.

Is your committee effective? We’re hosting free professional development workshops for the volunteering sector. Effective Committees Workshops topics such as governance, legal matters, marketing and creating a positive culture will assist people managing community groups or volunteers to develop the skills necessary for a maintaining a healthy organisation.

Positive development for our kids Cerberus: Cr Kate Roper

New playground facilities to encourage creativity, learning and development are coming to Babbington Reserve in Hastings. The playground will provide access opportunities for children with limited mobility, include shade elements and utilise low-maintenance equipment where possible. The FMP Careers Expo showcases future training options and career pathways designed to inspire young people. The largest event of its kind on the peninsula, this year it will be held at Hastings Community Hub on Tuesday 22 May.

The Thin Edge of the Green Wedge Our Council is calling on the Victorian Government to reverse its push to promote three storey McMansionstyle housing throughout the peninsula’s towns and villages following changes introduced by the state government in 2017 that allow 11m height limits in the General Residential Zone without a planning permit. These changes impact the neighbours of 24,000 properties on the peninsula, are inconsistent with the character of our residential areas and were introduced without any community or Council consultation. We encourage you to support our call for stricter controls that will protect the peninsula’s environmental, economic and social fabric for the future.

Daughter Elizabeth Clancy said through their friendship her father had learnt a great deal about Christie who she said was “loved by so many locals in the Flinders and Shoreham area”. “This inspired my father to record this formally and write a book,” she said. “It is a wonderful read about Christie, his service and the local area. “I’m not sure how many veterans from World War II originally from our area still remain, so perhaps a celebration of this [is] fitting over coming weeks.” The book has sold its first run of 200 copies, and a second run is being published. Copies are available at the Flinders and Merricks general stores, and through Flinders District Historical Society. Copies will be available at the launch and on Anzac Day in Flinders.

Mornington News 17 April 2018



Nursing home to ease family trauma A NURSING home planned at Mt Martha would help avoid trauma and problems caused when elderly people are forced to move away from their families and community. “In many cases elderly couples are separated by quite some distance when one spouse requires nursing home care offsite while the remaining spouse resides at home within [the adjacent] Koorootang or Martha’s Point [retirement villages]”, Angela Pollard said when speaking on behalf of the family which owns the land on which the nursing home is planned. “It will provide a pathway to those residents requiring the next level of care and ensure that they remain within the community that they have been a part of for so many years.” Objections have been lodged and signatures collected on a petition opposing the two-storey 108-bed nursing home near the corner of Bird Rock Avenue and the Esplanade, Mt Martha (“Opposition to aged care centre” The News 20/3/18). Ms Pollard said the proposed nursing home had been planned over the past two years. “It should be noted that the authority governing nursing home bed licences has specifically identified Mornington and Mt Martha as the area within Victoria in most need of increased aged care beds,” she said. “The proposed nursing home will be a community facility that will potentially be in place for many years to come servicing the local Mt Martha

and Mornington population.” Ms Pollard said the nursing home would cover 1.25 hectares of the 3.19 hectares site “with no existing vegetation or animals to be effected”. “The proposed access will be situated on the existing fire break that runs along the relevant boundary minimising removal of vegetation,” she said. Ms Pollard said that only “a portion” of the nursing home would be double-storey and it would have a 10-metre setback from houses in Bird Rock Avenue, not the required two metres; “More importantly, the existing owner (below) of the property and her beloved miniature horse Taffy will still be seen exercising around the local streets of Mt Martha.” Details of the subdivision and development applications are available on Mornington Peninsula Shire’s website.

AN artist’s impression of the liquid hydrogento-gas plant planned at Hastings. The state and federal governments have agreed to put $100 million towards a fouryear pilot program extracting hydrogen from brown coal at the Loy Yang power station in the Latrobe Valley. The gas will be shipped from Hastings to Japan while the unwanted CO2 emissions are stored underground in the Latrobe Valley.

Doubts over hydrogen plan Continued from Page 1 A brochure distributed at the same time as the announcement by the prime minister said CCS (carbon capture and storage) would not be part of the pilot program “due to the low volumes of CO2 involved, equivalent to the annual emissions of about 20 cars”. “As such, [Mornington Peninsula Shire] council would have very good reason to ensure that its policy commitment to carbon neutrality is not breached and council ought to be very concerned that this project does not add to the carbon footprint within the shire,” Cr Fraser said. Karri Giles of Westernport and Peninsula Protection Council said the hydrogen proposal was “unwelcome”. “Four industrial processes, two journeys and the wrecking of Western Port by dredging and marine pests makes this hydrogen power source for Japan definitely not green or clean,” she said. “It must be one of the least efficient

power sources ever dreamt up, and certainly one of the most expensive. [Kawasaki in 2017] told us they were looking for a partnership with the Victorian government and, sure enough, this week our governments have announced a spend of $100 million on the trial alone.” Hastings Liberal MP Neale Burgess last year accused the state government of signing a “secret deal” with Kawasaki Heavy Industries that could lead to “long coal trains or a coal slurry pipe bringing huge amounts of coal to Hastings, building of a huge coal gasification plant at Hastings and the produced hydrogen being shipped through Western Port” (“Secret deal for toxic plan – MP” The News 17/1/17) Mr Burgess said he had been turned away from a meeting between the Port of Hastings Development Authority and Kawasaki executives. Afterwards, in an email, the authority’s chief financial officer Mark

O’Donnell said he had been advised “that if a member for parliament is seeking any information in relation to the Port of Hastings Development Authority they should direct their inquiry to the Minister for Ports [Luke Donnellan]”. Mr Burgess’s strong stance last year against the plant being located anywhere in Western Port contrasted with that of his federal Liberal colleague, Flinders MP Greg Hunt, who only ruled out “reindustrialisation” at Crib Point. Mr Hunt said in January 2017 that he was “utterly opposed” to Western Port being used as a coal port “and I have made it clear that Crib Point should not be reindustrialised for hydrogen or bitumen”. Mr Hunt said he knew of discussions between the state and Kawasaki but “as far as I am aware, at this stage no decisions have been made as to the port they will use”.

The Armistice of 1918

The Armistice between the Allies and Germany was signed at Compiègne and came into effect at 11 am on November 11 1918.The guns fell silent on the Western Front and after more than four years of unimaginable bloodshed and destruction, the fighting was finally over. At home in Australia, large crowds gathered in capital cities to celebrate the end of the conflict. The Armistice paved the way for the signing of a formal peace treaty, the Treaty of

On June 28 1919, the treaty was signed in the Hall of Mirrors at the Palace of Versailles, with Australian Prime Minister William Morris (Billy) Hughes and Deputy Prime Minister Joseph Cook adding their signatures on Australia’s behalf.

and resolve, and ensured that Australian troops in England waiting to come home had access to educational and vocational programmes.

Born in West Melbourne to migrant parents, John Monash studied arts and engineering before enlisting. He rose quickly through the ranks and also forged a successful career in business.

Among his many achievements as a statesmen and public figure was his leadership of the construction of the Shrine of Remembrance in Melbourne. He committed his later life to public service and to local community organisations.

His engineering background, and creative mind, led him to make use of technological advances on the battlefield. As he rose from brigadier, to divisional and then Corps commander he became increasingly adept at planning and executing set piece battles.

After the Second World War, Armistice Day became Remembrance Day, a time to commemorate war dead from all conflicts.

After several months of hard fighting on the Western Front, the Allies finally broke through the Hindenburg Line on September 29 1918.The German army was beaten and within weeks came the Armistice.

After the war, far from resting on his laurels, he was given the task of repatriating the Australian Imperial Force, which he performed with enormous dedication

Almost a century after some of his greatest victories, Australia is rightly proud of Sir John Monash’s international reputation as a strategic military leader.

Former ABC exec hired by shire MORNINGTON Peninsula Shire’s new communications executive manager Randal Mathieson has a background in marketing and promotion. During his time at the Australian Broadcasting Commission Mr Mathieson also “led a major organisational change project … as the head of change management, stakeholder liaison and communications”, according to information compiled and distributed by the shire. Mr Mathieson sits on several boards in the not-for-profit sector (The Big Issue and its offshoot Homes for Homes) and is involved in the arts, co-founding and co-chairing the Southbank Arts Precinct Group. His profile on the online jobs networking site LinkedIn begins with his four years (2000-2003) as “head of marketing-radio” at the national broadcaster. His career then includes a series of other ABC positions, including head of marketing; director; and head of change management, stakeholder liaison and communications (July 2015-June 2017). Councillors have been told that Mr Mathieson “took an extended break before joining us”. He holds a Master’s of Business in Marketing and a Bachelor of Arts in Media Studies. Mr Mathieson started work at the shire on Monday 12 March. His appointment in March coincided with union opposition to the “restructuring” of the shire’s compliance unit where 40 rangers and local laws officers were told they may face redundancies or have to reapply for their positions (“Union moves to protect jobs at shire” The News 3/4/18). The shire’s previous communications manager, Mark Kestigian, is now the communications and economic development executive manager at Baw Baw Shire Council. Alison Leighton, former chief operating officer at Mornington Peninsula Shire, is Baw Baw’s CEO. Keith Platt

Shire called to account for staff shake-up plans Keith Platt UNION lawyers were last week looking over documents to be lodged with the Fair Work Commission following a breakdown in negotiations aimed at saving the jobs of rangers and their supervisors at Mornington Peninsula Shire. Australian Services Union organiser Ty Lockwood said the shire wanted was offering redundancy packages to 13 employees in its compliance unit who had been told they could then reapply for their jobs (“Union moves to protect jobs at shire” The News 3/4/18). He said the shire could face a $1 million payout. “We want a Fair Work hearing – conciliation is the first part – as I’ve been to see them [shire managers] three times without a result. “We believe there’s a genuine difference with what’s set out in the enterprise agreement. What they’re saying doesn’t match with what they’re doing.” Mr Lockwood said positions could


only be declared redundant if the work was no longer required by an employer. In this case, the new positions being advertised stipulated the same work as the existing jobs “with some extras, such as writing briefs”. “There are 13 or 14 brand new positions which are essentially equivalent to those they’ve axed,” Mr Lockwood said on Thursday. “We call it spill and fill.” He said there was no reason why existing officers could not be taught the extra skills. While at the shire last week Mr Lockwood had also raised the question of school crossing supervisors being made authorised officers, enabling them to book motorists for traffic offences. “They told me they had no intent of doing that, but I think we just caught them in time,” he said. Mr Lockwood believed a training session before the end of the school holidays had been hurriedly cancelled by the shire. “This [giving crossing supervisors power to book motorists] would have huge safety implications,” he said.

“Imagine, there would be confrontations between supervisors and motorists and who would assist children and families to cross the road? “Common sense says this idea is just fraught with danger and puts the public and the crossing supervisor in potentially very dangerous and confrontational situations. “I personally have no reasonable idea why the shire would go down this path other than an attempt to gain more revenue through issuing infringements in and around school zones. “No other council or shire in Victoria has ever attempted such an outrageous idea. “This would have been a strange thing to have done and the only benefit could be revenue.” Mr Lockwood said school crossing supervisors were on the lowest of eight pay levels “and you should only authorise high level officers” who are involved in governance or deal with legislation or the administration of government acts. The shire did not respond to questions about the school crossing supervisors by deadline.

WRITER and actor Kate Mulvany has written a play based on a book that takes its readers out of this world. Mulvany attributes the award-winning Masquerade by Kit Williams with helping her recover from a bout of childhood sickness. “Within a few words my mind exploded, my imagination went crazy be-cause I was on that adventure with Jack on his way across the universe, and I think that book helped me get better,” Mulvany says. “I always kept the book Masquerade by my side, my entire life. Then a few years ago I decided I wanted to turn that book into a play.” The play has been chosen as this year’s production by the not-for-profit, Dreamhouse Theatre Company. The cast of 16 from four Mornington Peninsula secondary schools has been rehearsing since December for two performances next month. Artistic director Carole Patullo describes the play as “a wonderful mix of the poetic, moving and very funny”. “In a wondrous world of riddles and hidden

treasure, bumbling Jack Hare is on a race against time to deliver a message of love from the Moon to the Sun. “Far, far away in a world just like ours, a mother cheers her son Joe, re-covering in hospital, with the tale of Jack Hare’s adventure. But when Jack’s mission goes topsy-turvy, Joe and his mum must come to the rescue, and the line between the two worlds becomes blurred forever.” Patullo says live music and songs add to the play’s charm. Also involved in the Dreamhouse production are VCA graduates musical director Anna Durham and costume designer and maker Jacinda Hill. Dreamhouse Theatre Company caters primarily to 13–18 year olds and, according to Patullo “aims to inspire a love of the performing arts and to celebrate the artistic contribution that young people make to our com-munity”. Masquerade is on Friday 4 May and Saturday 5 May at The Southern Peninsula Arts Centre, Rosebud. Bookings:

NEWS DESK Arrest after tip-off POLICE have praised the actions of a triple zero caller who alerted them to the danger being caused by an erratic driver in Somerville last week. Acting Sergeant Sarah Blackmore, of Mornington police, said the driver, 25, of Hastings, was spotted in Eramosa Road West, Tuesday 10 April, allegedly driving in a wayward manner and with different number plates front and rear of his car. He was arrested in the McDonald’s car park soon afterwards. He was charged with possessing controlled weapons – allegedly two kitchen knives – theft from motor cars, stating a false name and address and driving while disqualified. He was bailed to appear at Frankston Magistrates’ Court in July. “If the member of the public had not called triple zero this motorist would probably not have been intercepted, so we thank them,” Acting Sergeant Blackmore said.

Car parks lost in town’s expansion By Mike Hast *

FINDING a car park in Mt Eliza’s shopping centre is about to become more difficult with the loss of at least five per cent of the village’s 1017 parking spaces. The busy centre will lose 30 car parks after redevelopment of John Butler Reserve, and 15 spaces after expansion of Eliza Square shopping centre with its lead tenant Woolworths and liquor outlet BWS. The Committee for Greater Frankston – an independent group formed last year to advocate for a better deal in the region, including Mt Eliza – is calling on Mornington Peninsula Shire to increase not decrease the number of parking spaces in Mt Eliza. And it is asking the state government to acknowledge that more car parking needs to be provided in outer suburbs, which have less public transport than Melbourne’s inner suburbs. “The state’s planning scheme treats outer areas like Mt Eliza the same as inner suburbs. It’s fundamentally flawed,” committee CEO Ginevra Hosking said. Ms Hosking said inner suburbs were far better connected than outer areas. “If you live in Richmond, for example, you can catch trains, trams, buses or taxis. If you’re fit, you also can walk or ride a bicycle. “In outer suburbs with inadequate public transport, a car is essential for most individuals and families. Everything is more spread out. If you use public transport, it takes hours to get anywhere.”

The loss of John Butler Reserve parking has been on the cards since 2012 when shire councillors approved a master plan for redevelopment of the reserve, part of Ranelagh Estate. A large part of the reserve is listed on the Victorian Heritage Register. Butler Reserve is one of Ranelagh’s 13 reserves and parks but has been used mainly for car parking over many years. It also contains a public toilet, scout hall, preschool, playground, fenced dog park and trees. The master plan is designed to return part of the reserve to parkland by removing car parks. The existing approved plan would see the deletion of 30 car spaces. Another 38 will be moved to Ranelagh Drive, between 100 and 200 metres further away from shops. When redeveloped, the reserve will

have a new playground, “pedestrian corridor” and bigger open space area. Expansion of Eliza Square also has been on the books for several years although the extent of car parking losses has been revealed only recently. Owners of the complex on the corner of Mt Eliza Way and Canadian Bay Rd first sought permission to expand in 2008 (when the supermarket was branded Safeway). Mornington Peninsula Shire Council refused the application but the owners appealed in the state planning tribunal VCAT, which in 2011 ordered the shire to grant the permit. Eliza Square with its supermarket and liquor outlet, Westpac bank and speciality shops is being expanded by just under one-third but 15 parking spaces will go. Ginevra Hosking said the planning

system had failed to recognise how important car parking was to shoppers, businesses and tourists in the region. “We need more parking not less. The success of Mt Eliza depends on it,” she said. “Every Mt Eliza shopper knows that finding a car park is a struggle at the moment. Removing 45 spaces will make it even harder. “Older people and those with limited mobility will be particularly disadvantaged. Reducing car spaces makes no sense. “More parking will help businesses grow, and growing businesses need more staff; jobs for young people, for people of all ages. We’re asking shire councillors and officers to get serious about improving parking in Mt Eliza.” * Mike Hast is a freelance writer for the Committee for Greater Frankston

Reward for return of missing keepsakes Stephen Taylor A FINGAL woman preparing to move house after 15 years is offering $1500 for the return of family heirlooms she mistakenly gave to opportunity shops in Rosebud. “The reward is a lot more than the items are worth but, to me, they’re everything,” Ann Robb said. Ms Robb said about eight weeks ago she filled the family utility with black garbage bags full of clothes and other unwanted items and took them to the Rotary and Lions op shops, opposite the Plaza. Four days later she realised that at least two of the bags contained her precious items. “We are moving house so I’ve been stressed and tired, and this was a genuine mistake,” she said. “I went straight back to the shops but no one had seen the items. I just don't understand it; whoever opened the bags would have seen the goods were really precious but not one of

ANN Robb, above, and some of the items, top, she mistakenly “donated” to op shops in Rosebud. Pictures: Supplied

the ladies had seen any of the items which makes me think they never made it to the shop floor. “Don’t they have some items valued from outside sources? This obviously didn't happen. I feel so disappointed.” Ms Robb praised the work of volunteers at the shops who “do such

a good job”. But she is devastated her valuable keepsakes went unnoticed. “This has been heartbreaking for me as I lost my mother two years ago and some of the items were so sentimental,” she said. “This must happen a lot, so it is a warning to others.” She said one bag had three woollen

tartan rugs which she said were family heirlooms, two cream cushions with hand embroidered peacocks in dusty pink – “a keepsake from mum” – one round cream-coloured Lacey cushion, one square cushion with a light background with pinks, red and blue blotches in a see through blanket bag and black garbage bag. Other bags contained three pairs of new soft leather slip-on shoes in white and black, eight designer watches by Kenneth Cole and Just Cavalli “all new with tags”. One was distinctive in chunky stainless steel with a blue face and squiggly time hand. “I bought these watches years ago when Kleins closed down in the Plaza,” Ms Robb said. Other bags contained two Canterbury rugby tops, one purple and gold and one with blue bands, a stone dolphin with a missing tip on its dorsal fin, three Ansett model planes and one Qantas all in boxes. An Ansett 747 is a 2000 Olympic Games special with an Aboriginal painting on it. “We bought them when Ansett folded,” Ms Robb said. “We stood in

a queue for over an hour. My husband loves planes and wanted to be a pilot. They are very sentimental.” “Someone must know where the items are. I’ve been back to op shops , checked eBay and pawn shops but the missing bags still might be in one person’s possession. “All I can do is pray that someone will be honest and do the right thing. People may have seen them or know where they are.” Rotary Op Shop former president and committee member Libby Wilson said volunteers had scoured the shop several times but had been unable to find the missing items. “We gave the lady the opportunity to go through everything at the time but they weren’t found,” she said. “We’ve only just taken down signs on the windows asking shoppers if they have seen them, but no one has said anything.” Ms Wilson said she had spoken to Lions Op Shop representatives who also said they had not seen any of the items.

Buyer Review - Recommended by Norbert & Martine I would like to congratulate and thank Ainsley Wescott in particular, together with the rest of the team at Harcourts for the wonderful & professional service that was provided to us. From the time that we met the team and bought the property, I could not speak highly enough of them. I look forward to more dealings with both Ainsley, on the rental side of things, and Carolyn for our next purchase. Ainsley was very good at communicating to us throughout the whole process when we were looking for tenants, she updated us with inspection outcomes after each opening and gave us feedback. It took us less than 2 weeks to get a good tenant at our asking rental price and the paper work was very easy to deal with. I would strongly recommend to use these lovely ladies for your next property purchase or rental requirements. Keep up the good work.

City office bows to top end of town Having read about Mornington Peninsula Shire’s planning office in the Melbourne CBD the question has to be asked: what’s being planned next by shire CEO Carl Cowie? Having replaced the long-standing officers of the shire who lived locally and had a sound local knowledge and affinity with the peninsula with some who mostly live in Melbourne, will a “corporate office” be the next step? One can’t help but feel this move to benefit absentee owners is bowing to the top end of town to the detriment of service to the majority of us who choose to live here permanently. Although over the years since amalgamation took place of encouraging - particularly those I have represented [as a councillor] across the Western Port side of the shire - to take a positive view of its benefits, I too have to question whether we really are fast becoming the “poor relation”. With an eight councillors to three councillors inequitable representation added to senior officers who live elsewhere with no knowledge of or affinity for our area, any optimism or loyalty I have held is fast being eroded. Brian L Stahl, Hastings

Green Wedge threat Mornington Peninsula Shire has done the right thing and raised important issues for our peninsula’s future which is very much under threat from non-resident land developers and Spring Street policy makers. Land banking by overseas interests is also evident with the sale of the Mornington Star, Mt Eliza property and that should be legislated against by our federal government to stop offshore investment money

being used to buy up plum large agricultural areas for hotel development. Allied to this danger to the green wedge is the threat of non-Australian retirement settlement developers moving in and investing in prime coastal blocks of land traditionally used for tourism, agriculture and education. We will be poorer off losing both neighbourhood character and increasing vehicle usage on already inadequate roads that service our distinctly non-urban metropolitan townships, villages and national parks. Hopefully a revision of the shire’s green wedge master plan will address some of these issues and protect future generations. Ian Morrison, convenor Mt Eliza Community Alliance, Kunyung Road Action Group and South Eastern Centre for Sustainability.

Let Kawasaki pay It seems the Labor party and the Liberal National parties are on the same page when it comes to feeding the ravenous monster of corporate greed. After many failed attempts at keeping Victoria’s brown coal reserves as a tradeable commodity at a cost of many hundreds of millions of dollars to taxpayers, it looks as if federal and state governments are prepared to give away some more of our tax money to Kawasaki. If Kawasaki thinks it can make this dirty and unnecessary resource into a clean source of energy, it should do so with its own money . And only if very stringent environmental and ecological controls are put in place. Has Australia become so desperate as to bribe foreign companies to take our dirtiest resources to keep our books balanced?

Upgrades make reserve good for all THE transformation of “away” change room amenities into unisex, and upgrades to existing public toilets, are among stage two works under way at Mt Martha’s Ferrero Recreation Reserve. The works started in February and are expected to be completed in May. Stage one works completed last year included upgrades to unisex toilets and unisex ambulant toilet, shower cubicles, washroom fixtures, new storage components and a general refurbishment. Mornington Peninsula mayor Cr Bryan Payne said the works were part of council’s sports pavilion strategy meaning they had to meet current and future needs of the community. “Council has committed $5.3 million to sports pavilions across the shire in the 2017-18 budget to ensure adequate change facilities and ameni-

ties to provide improved access for all players, especially females and juniors,” he said. Pavilions across the peninsula were being progressively upgraded to meet current standards and encourage more girls and women to participate. These have reportedly been welcomed by the home and away junior girl football and female cricket teams. “A key factor in attracting and maintaining female participation is to provide facilities to promote equal participation in sport,” Cr Bev Colomb said. The state government has supported the reserve’s redevelopment through the Community Sports Infrastructure Fund.

Judging by previous efforts, I fear we’re seeing the waste of another $100,000,000 of Victoria’s money. Rupert Steiner, Balnarring

Messy dog owners

Unsuitable for dogs The article by Keith Platt about complaints by the “McRae dog walking community” at not being able to walk their dogs at any time on the McCrae beach seems to be a biased attempt to publicise the disappointments of a tiny minority of people for not being able to have complete access to the beach for their dogs at the expense of all other people who wish to use the beach (“Dog owners cry foul over time limits” The News 10/4/18). There is no evidence of the so-called “costly community consultation process” that was supposedly carried out by Bill Chalkley and his very small group of people (I know, because I see them on the beach regularly) or any evidence of “demonstrated dominant support for the removal of the McCrae beach restrictions”. McCrae is the most popular family friendly beach on the peninsula, used by swimming groups at all times of the day and on most months of the year. It is also used by recreational swimmers and people who visit the beach to either relax on the sand or to exercise. It is quite absurd that the Mornington Peninsula Shire would select this beach as a “leashfree” beach when there are plenty of other less frequented beaches between the McCrae Yacht Club and rosebud pier. The relaxation of the hours now means that during daylight saving any number of dogs could be running around the beach when most people would be hoping to enjoy their leisure time. Mr Chalkley and his friends should be happy that their dogs will have access to the beach from 3pm until 10am the following morning. This is a fair decision in favour of dog owners and will suffice until reason prevails and it is realised that McCrae beach is not the appropriate beach for dogs. Bill Walsh, McCrae

There’s a terrific walking track that I’ve been using while I’ve been staying in Dromana. If I walk down to McCrae it’s very clean, with almost no rubbish and no dog poop that I’ve ever seen. Contrast that with using the same track to walk towards Safety Beach - dog poop everywhere. These irresponsible dog owners should grow up. It’s their dog and their responsibility. It looks terrible, it can negatively impact our wildlife, and it’s truly disgusting if you happen to tread in it. If they are not prepared to pick up after their dog they should not walk it in any public areas. Show some respect. Name and address supplied, Dromana

Rubbish and weeds Our pathways and roads are neglected. Weeds and rubbish are scattered everywhere. I can remember when plants and flowers were planted in roundabouts and pride was taken on our footpaths and roads. Why is Mornington Peninsula Shire so reluctant to maintain paths, roads and have regular pick-ups of roadside rubbish? Brooke Martin, McCrae

The lone smoker It’s a funny old world. I still smoke cigarettes, my only defence being I live alone so small pleasures remain despite the risk (I’m dreading the day someone says crumpets are bad for me). I have approval to smoke at my cafe with my long black (and free read of my bible, the HeraldSun) up until 8.30am, provided there are no customers eating outside to take in the never-ending cars and trucks roaring past, which apparently does not affect those outside healthy eaters. I case the area on entry, particularly at Easter when holiday types rise early and hop into a bacon and egg roll, outside. I watch until they finish their gorging, sneak in one smoke if I’m lucky. They’ve all gone home now. The next few weeks are looking good. Cliff Ellen, Rye

They had been working hard to have this road put in repair and if Cranbourne Council would attend to the portion within its boundary it would be of great advantage to the residents of this district.

The President of the Frankston Council thought it might be brought into the list under the Country Roads Board’s subsidiary roads scheme. *** From the pages of the Mornington Standard, 20 April 1918

The Catastrophic Squeegee Confrontation By Stuart McCullough BEFORE I knew what was happening it was too late. I waved my arms, I called out, I pulled a face that sat somewhere between alarm and despair, but it was to no avail. He had started and he wasn’t going to stop. There was no turning back. He was going to press on regardless. Having reached the point of no return, there was little I could do other than make sure the doors were locked and hope that the lights would change. Call it an over-reaction; I simply didn’t want anyone to clean my windscreen. Ordinarily, I’m all over it. Within two hundred metres of an intersection, I’m surveying the landscape, trying to spot anyone holding a squeegee and a water bottle. They can be awfully hard to catch sight of and I’m sure some of them use camouflage, but I’d like to think I have my eye in. Once seen, I make sure I do everything I can short of getting out of the car and draping myself across the bonnet to clearly communicate to my squeegee-wielding friend that – no – I do not want my windscreen washed. It starts with the hands, which are raised, fingers splayed and moving in opposite directions, to indicate that anyone thinking of trying to clean my windscreen should desist instantly from advancing on my car. Then there’s the dramatic pantomimeinspired shake of the head and the mouthing of the word ‘no’ such that a lip reader in outer space could easily get the gist of what I’m attempting to communicate. I’d like to think I was unambiguous. ‘Move on’ is all I’m really trying to say. ‘Find someone who

will be appreciate your skills more than I will.’ To succeed, however, you have to do all these things before they’ve already started. I don’t know where he came from. I was giving a work colleague a lift and we were chatting away – as you do – when we pulled up at a set of lights and he simply appeared. It

wasn’t until he spread across the glass like a gigantic insect that I saw him, at which point it was way too late. I didn’t see him as he was coming. For all I know, he dropped out of the sky – such was the degree of surprise I felt when he appeared. But before I knew what was going on, he was right in front of me.

It began with a squirt of what I assumed to be detergent-laced water. It was all over the glass and, suddenly, he was furiously wiping away. I yelled ‘no’, waved my hands and did pretty much everything other than sound the horn (which I feared might seem overly aggressive) to make it clear that he should stop. But there was no stopping him. Instead, he yelled out something about me not having to pay. Which, in turn, made me feel slightly guilty. It wasn’t clear to me whether he was attempting to show off his skills to other motorists in the hope of drawing more business or whether he saw my windscreen and felt sorry for me. I’m not ashamed to say that I often have a dirty windscreen. I don’t know how it happens – it simply does. It’s not as though I take my sedan off-road or toss buckets of dirt over my car. Life itself seems to ensure that my windscreen has something of a natural tint about it. I’m not proud of it. Rather, I simply have come to accept that’s how things are. It would be a sad state of affairs if I started cleaning my windscreen more often to reduce the risk of being accosted at traffic lights. Modern cars are nothing short of amazing. My first car was a Daihatsu Charade and the only thing it did automatically was stop working. The car I drive these days has a dazzling array of automatic functions. The lights, the stereo and – somewhat unfortunately – the windscreen wipers, all operate automatically. At the merest hint of moisture, the windscreen wipers lurch into action. It’s incredibly impres-

sive and would make my Daihatsu Charade weep with envy. I don’t have to do anything other than keep out of their way. Sadly, the man cleaning my windscreen wasn’t to know this. As the wipers launched upwards, the man leaning on my bonnet jumped back, yelling ‘hey’ and casting a glance at me that can only be described as deeply hostile. Clearly, he thought that I had turned the wipers on to spite him. Instead, much like the computer in 2001: A Space Odyssey, these things had a mind of their own and couldn’t be stopped. I lifted my hands in an attempt to prove to him that it wasn’t me, but I suspect he interpreted this as a kind of ‘look Mum, no hands!’ style humblebrag. Then it happened a second time and began to think that my squeegeewielding friend was about to peel away the windscreen and throttle me. As the lights changed to green, I wasted no time in getting out of there. In retrospect, I probably should have waited until he’d dismounted from my bonnet before accelerating. In fact, I was so flustered it wasn’t until I was halfway home that I realized he was still attached to the front of the car. I had pulled at another set of lights when – out of nowhere – a guy with a squeegee appeared and pointed to the other bloke and said, ‘Would you like me to clean this?’ I wound down the window, handed over my wallet and simply said, ‘thanks’.

Stonecats all alone on top


By Toe Punt FRANKSTON YCW sits alone at the top of the MPNFL Division One ladder after beating Bonbeach in miserable conditions, 6.11 (47) to 4.8 (32), at the John Coburn Oval on Saturday. The Stonecats took full advantage of the wind conditions in the opening quarter, booting 3.2 (20) to 1.0 (6), before holding off Bonbeach in the last quarter, restricting the Sharks to one goal only. The game was played in typical YCW vs Bonbeach fashion, leaving no room for players who fail to put their head over the footy. Jai Coglan and Paul Minchington for the Stonecats while BJ Credlin was arguably the best player on the ground. Darcy James, Ben Hogan and Matt Douglas were the best for the Sharks. Edithvale-Aspendale remains in touch with the top five despite trailing all day against Mornington. The Eagles trailed at every change before booting two goals seven to one behind in the final term to win 5.13 (43) to 4.9 (33). A good effort considering the player points breach against Bonbeach a couple of weeks ago which saw them lose their points and percentage for that game. In terms of the Doggies, they would have been shattered with their final quarter performance. Its second quarter they booted just five behinds and really could have set up a victory. It was great to see Brett O’Hanlon back at his best while Liam Harris and Michael Meehan were also catalysts in the victory. Frankston Bombers celebrated a powerful victory against Seaford on Saturday winning at home 7.12 (54) to 4.4 (28). The reality is the margin should have been a lot more given the Bombers had 19 scoring shots to just

eight, not to mention the Bombers restricted Seaford to a single goal in three quarters of footy. Ryan Marks-Logan was named the best player on the ground while Ben Northover once again proved what a handy recruit he has been with another outstanding performance. David and Ben Howlett were the best of the Tigers while Aaron Walton rarely lets his team down. Pines finally registered its account and moved straight into sixth place on the ladder with its first win of the season against Mt Eliza, winning 13.5 (83) to 8.12 (60). In a high scoring and entertaining clash, the game marked the return of the all important, and arguably the league’s best player, Aaron Edwards. Aaron was one of four Pines players to boot multiple goals while dominant mid fielder Paul Scanlon and Corey Ash were instrumental in the win. For Mt Eliza, who lead at half time, Lachlan Young was named best while the returning Kyle Docherty and Blaine Coates were also solid performers. Sorrento overcame a slow start and booted nine goals to two after quarter time to beat Rosebud by 30 points 11.15 (81) to 6.15 (51). Sorrento have now won two games on the trot and it was the familiar names that got them over the line on Saturday. Chris Dawes booted four goals up front while Leigh Poholke and James Tomkins booted two goals each, James Brigden and James Hallohan were among their best. While there were some names missing for the Sharks there were some new faces who stepped up to the plate. Sean and Keegan Downie were Rosebud’s best along with Fletcher Hustwaite and the important Greg Bentley.

Yabbies drown when it counts DIVISION TWO

By Toe Punt TYABB conceded the final six goals of the game to lose in a nail biter against Hastings in round two of MPNFL Division Two football on Saturday. Tyabb was cruising to victory against premiership fancy Hastings, leading at three quarter time 8.8 (56) to 3.3 (22). Nothing looked like stopping the Yabbies at that stage of the game. Hastings on the other hand had selfbelief. They also had the advantage of the wind. Taylor Stratton got the ball rolling for the Blues at the seven minute mark of the last quarter before a mini avalanche from the 20 minute mark saw the Blues hit the front. Dale Alanis and Luke Hewitt were instrumental in the win for the Blues, Hewitt finishing with three majors. Brendan Doyle and Simon Rahilly were the best for the Yabbies. After more than 120 minutes of football nothing could separate Langwarrin and Red Hill at Lloyd Park on Saturday. Virtually nothing separated the sides all afternoon, with the shocking weather not favouring either team. One could argue that Langwarrin


Mornington News

should have won the match given they had 14 scoring shots to nine, however the scoreboard read Langwarrin 5.9 (39) to 6.3 (39) at games end. Red Hill’s Ben Hughes locked the game up with less than two minutes on the clock to play. Dromana once again proved its going to be right there when the whips are cracking come finals time after beating Devon Meadows 14.12 (96) to 8.9 (57). Leading by just eight points at three quarter time Dromana put their foot down with the aide of the breeze to run out easy winners. Boom recruit Ben Holmes was instrumental in their win with a four goal best on ground performance while Terry Wheeler and Josh Bateman were also major players in the victory. For the Panthers Cal O’Hare, Mat Fletcher and Pat Harmes were shining lights. In the battle of the hoops Chelsea were able to overcome a slow start beating Pearcedale by 28 points, 11.11 (77) to 6.13 (49). Chelsea trailed by one point at three quarter time but five goals from Curtis Bywater and a best on ground performance from Todd Gardiner ensured they picked up the vital four points.

17 April 2018

Karingal maintained its undefeated run knocking over Rye at Rye by 28 points, 12.12 (84) to 7.14 (56). The Bulls got away to a flier and lead by 19 points at the first change setting themselves up for the victory. The strength of the Bulls so far this season has been due to its many contributors, especially around goal, where it had ten goal kickers on Saturday. Steve McInnes, Andrew Mathers and Blake Simpson with two gaols were key players in the victory. Tom Baker was again named best for Rye along with Leigh Morse and Jai Lloyd. With a very new looking list Rye may take a little more time to gel and play their best footy. Crib Point showed off their new lights on Saturday night against Somerville in an outstanding initiative for the club and competition. Like all clubs, the Magpies are looking for new ways to raise revenue and night footy is a wonderful way to achieve that. Unfortunately for the Pies there wasn’t enough to get excited about on the field, beaten 16.10 (106) to 6.13 (49). The Eagles blew Crib point away with a nine goal to one third quarter. Somerville’s Billy Rolfe was a stand out in the match with a game high six goals.

Eagles fly high, Baxter breaks through SOCCER

By Craig MacKenzie SOMERVILLE Eagles continued their winning ways in State 5 South with a 3-1 win over Aspendale at Tyabb Central Recreation Reserve on Saturday. Eagles’ player-coach Dave Greening refuses to discuss the club’s promotion chances but his side is doing its talking out on the pitch and now boasts a perfect start to the season. Somerville flew out of the blocks and dominated the first half-hour before a superb ball down the line from Sam Beadle found Greening. The ace striker twisted and turned past two opponents before firing a shot at goal which was parried to Louis Griffiths who tucked it away from close range for the opener. Andy Yeo, Joel Wade and Griffiths went close again before a brilliant through ball from Bjorn Kutschera found Greening who outpaced the defence then struck a left-foot shot beyond the keeper to give the home side a two-goal cushion at half-time. The second half was a lot more competitive although Michael Clark, Greening, Griffiths and Matt Swanson had chances to extend the lead. A superb lob by Aspendale striker Cameron Pain in the 74th minute gave Eagles’ keeper Brad Klarenbeek no chance and ensured a tense finale. But Greening eased the home club’s fears when he burst past three defenders to finish beyond the keeper from a tight angle. Oh how Mornington would love to emulate Somerville’s start to the season. Adam Jamieson’s side started its campaign as State 1 South-East title favourite but after three straight losses now is on the bottom of the league and in desperate need of a win at Elwood Park next Saturday against fellow struggler St Kilda. Despite holding visitor Richmond to a 0-0 scoreline after playing against a howling gale in the first half at Dallas Brooks Park last weekend the home team eventually went down 2-1. Two superb crosses bent into the wind by Sam Reeves gave Mornington its best chances in the opening 45 minutes but neither Andre Bennett nor Curtis Hutson could make them count. Richmond keeper Ferran Borras suffered a hand injury in the 25th minute and after a lengthy delay was replaced by Ilhan Somertas. Richmond’s best chance of the half came in the 43rd minute when Arnold Suew played a one-two and charged into the right side of the box only to

Eagles soar: Somerville player-coach Dave Greening (right) in action against Aspendale last weekend. Picture: Darryl Kennedy

shoot across Mornington keeper Liam Little and wide of the far post. When Max Etheridge got the decisive touch and broke the deadlock in the 48th minute Mornington was in a commanding position with the wind roaring at its back. And if Sammy Orritt’s acrobatic volley had been on target a few minutes later then it could have been game over. But Richmond showed tremendous character to claw its way back into the contest and a spectacularly effective rabona from gifted playmaker Edgar Marcellino in the 67th minute took everyone by surprise. Everyone except former Mornington central midfielder Chris Reid who had snuck into the box and his low strike past Little was met by youngster Charlie Parker whose sliding attempt to clear sent the ball over the goal line for the equaliser. Parker was to play an important part in the decisive moment of the contest when his tackle from behind felled Elisio Batista inside the area in the 87th minute and left referee Patrick Chaplin with no choice but to point to

Sudoku and crossword solutions

the spot. Marcellino converted by sending Little the wrong way and completing Richmond’s comeback. Fears of three red cards for Mornington in as many weeks looked founded when Jamie Cumming scythed down Batista two minutes later but Cumming escaped with a caution. Mornington veteran Wayne Gordon came off the bench in the dying minutes but didn’t have enough time to make an impact. The last thing Skye United expected when it started its 2018 State 3 SouthEast campaign was to be pointless after three rounds but that is the reality that Billy Armour’s side faces after Saturday’s 2-0 away loss to league leader South Yarra. Skye has only scored once in three games, an alarming statistic given the club’s expectations after a robust recruiting drive in the off-season. Ronan Kelly gave South Yarra a half-time lead and a second-half strike from Elvis Imarhiagbe settled the issue. Skye is third-bottom and is at home on Saturday to second-bottom Dingley

Stars so a win is a must. Dylan Waugh’s late goal for Seaford United was little consolation after a disappointing performance on Saturday against Bayside Argonauts. For the Cheltenham-based visitor it was soon mission accomplished and they travelled back up Nepean Highway with three points and a hefty goal difference after a 7-1 rout of the home team. Seaford has quickly established itself as the leading relegation candidate in State 3 South-East and travels to fifth-placed Whitehorse United next weekend. In State 4 South Baxter kick-started its 2018 season with a Travis Ernsdoerfer hat-trick in a 6-1 thrashing of Dandenong Warriors at Lois Twohig Reserve on Saturday. The visitors took control of this clash after eight minutes with an Ernsdoerfer strike from the left and a Dan Disseldorp header from a long ball into the box by Matt Morgan later in the half saw Baxter leading 2-0 at the interval. Five minutes into the second half a Michael Bowen header made it 2-1 but



the home side’s hopes were shattered soon after when Izaak Barr met a loose ball and from 25 metres sent a screamer into the top corner to make it 3-1. Ernsdoerfer withstood a challenge inside the area and blasted the ball high into the net to make it 4-1 then Baxter substitute Joe Iline calmly nutmegged the keeper to make it 5-1 in the 88th minute. Ernsdoerfer rounded off a great day for himself and his team with a low left-foot strike from the edge of the box in the 90th minute to complete the whitewash. In NPL2 East news Langwarrin’s excellent start to the season continued when Gus Macleod’s outfit came away from Churchill Reserve with a 0-0 draw against NPL2 West league leader St Albans Saints in their crossover clash on Sunday. Langy came closest in the first half when a Callum Goulding strike from outside the area struck the post and referee Dean Stafrace waved away loud appeals for a penalty after Langy striker Liam Baxter went down inside the area. Langy’s under-20s lost 3-1 with teenager Zach Karolidis making it two goals in two days after scoring from a stunning free-kick the previous day in the under-18s victory over Murray United at Albury-Wodonga. In NPLW news Southern United lost 11-0 away to Geelong Galaxy United on Saturday. Southern’s U12s won 8-1 with goals from Chiara Taylor, Eden McKeown (2), Leah Plavljanic, Jasmine Smith, Rhiannon Kelleher, Kayla McLeod and Savanah Lapenta. Southern’s under-14s won 4-1 with goals from Alex Jones, Rhys McKenna, Alessandra Davis and Candy Kilderry, the under-16s lost 3-1 with Monique Lapenta scoring for Southern while the under-19s lost 1-0. Here are next weekend’s games: SATURDAY 3pm: Langwarrin v Eastern Lions (Lawton Park), St Kilda v Mornington (Elwood Park), Frankston Pines v Old Scotch (Monterey Reserve), Skye Utd v Dingley Stars (Skye Recreation Reserve), Whitehorse Utd v Seaford Utd (Terrara Park), Baxter v Noble Park (Baxter Park), Old Mentonians v Somerville Eagles (Mentone Grammar Senior School).

Freedman purchases ‘colt of the year’ By Ben Triandafillou PINECLIFF-based racehorse trainer Anthony Freedman purchased the full-brother to his dual-Group One winning filly Shoals at the Inglis Easter Yearling sales on Wednesday 11 April for a sale-topping $2.3 million. Freedman, who has stables at Flemington and Pinecliff in Mt Eliza, knows all too well the potential talent that runs through the family bloodlines of broodmare, The Broken Shore, with the mares first foal Shoals claiming her second Group One victory in Sydney last month. Freedman didn’t want the colt slipping through his fingers and said knowing the family as well as he does gave him the confidence to purchase the colt at lot 400 for the multi-million dollar price. “I didn’t want to walk away without having a good crack at buying him,” Freedman said. “You have to pay for these colts. I thought he was the colt of the year. He’s very much like his sister but bigger and stronger, so it gave me the confidence to go to that sort of money. “It’s a lot of money but it’s the best family in this country and probably the southern hemisphere, and colts like that are hard to get.” Freedman was given the first two foals by Fastnet Rock out of The Broken Shore

to train by bloodstock heavyweights John Messara and Pinecliff-owner Jonathan Munz. The first foal, Shoals, has gone on to stamp herself as one of the top three-year-old milers in Australia with the second filly, Tides, being unraced. Freedman now has three of the siblings under his care and the way things are going at the moment Messara thinks the trend is likely to continue. “We gave him the first two fillies and I think he’ll buy the rest,” he said. “Tides is

heading for a listed race in Queensland to start in six to eight weeks. If she’s able to get black-type, the mother will have two-fortwo.” Messara confirmed that Arrowfield Stud had purchased 25 percent of the colt and said, “He just had everything and he was a good individual.” The Broken Shore has a colt foal by Medaglia d’Oro who is set to go through the sales next year and she is currently in foal again to Fastnet Rock.

Title honours for Rosebud golfers ROSEBUD Country Club hosted the third and final rounds of their Men’s and Women’s club championships on Saturday 24 and Tuesday 27 March.

Hampton finished with rounds of 66, 69 and 79 (214) to record a 14-shot victory over Matthew de Montignic-Dudic. In the Women’s championships, 18-year-old Monica Marchesani successfully defended her title as the Ladies champion with rounds of 86, 77 and 82 (245). Marchesani defeated Pam Fisher by nine strokes with Fisher also winning the Senior Women’s title. Other victories on the days went to: Men: A Reserve: R Boundy (232). B Grade: G Lee (263).

17 April 2018

THE rebirth of the Bendigo Bank Parkdale Gift was struck with a “summer’s worth of rain” on Saturday 24 March but athletes weren’t deterred to compete in the first running of the Gift in over 54 years. While the Healthy Start event and tennis program suffered from the weather and were “washed out”, more than 560 entrants still competed on the 11-event program at the Gerry Green Reserve, Parkdale which included boxing, athletics and the Bayside School Championships. The day belonged to the Western Australians with Evan Jarvis and Kiara Reddingius claiming the Men’s and Women’s 120m Parkdale Gifts. Jarvis started at a handicap of 8.5 metres to run away with the Men’s Gift and the $2,500 winner’s prize in a time of 12.59 seconds defeating Victorian runner Kevin Brittain in the final. In the Women’s Gift, Reddingius, who just missed out on making it to the Commonwealth Games, started at a handicap of 3 metres and motored home to run over the top of Victorian runners Hannah Lindstrom (9.75m handicap) and Deni O’Connor (17.75m handicap) in a time of 14.46 seconds. Parkdale Gift president Tim Mason said, “It was great to have competitors from across the country competing”. “The two winners from Western Australia came a long way to get here so it was good to see them duly salute,” he said. “Kiara only just missed out on going to the Commonwealth Games so it was great to see her compete in the Gift and take home the $2,500 prize.” Mason said he was really happy with the overall outcome of the Parkdale Gift and that it was very much what he was hoping to re-create. “We really embraced the history of the Parkdale Gift with past winner’s Graham Huggings (1963) and Bob Wishart (1964) both attending

the day and presenting the ribbons to the winners,” he said. “You don’t want to throw out history and how the Gift used to be. History has a lot to say and it was good to embrace the past and try and re-create what it was like in 1964 but in a 2018 sort of way.” The 120m Invitational event was a new highlight to the Gift this year with runners from the Kimberly community in far north Western Australia claiming the top three positions. Solomon Puemorra, 16 and his cousin Deqwayne Puemorra, 18 took full advantage of their opportunity to travel to Victoria and compete in both the Parkdale Gift and the Stawell Gift as they respectably finished first and second ahead of Alex McKenzie in the Invitational event. Mason raised over $7,500 to create the experience for the cousins and provide a platform for indigenous runners to showcase their talent. “The idea was very well received and they really seemed to enjoy the experience,” Mason said. “They continued to improve over the day and when they got to Stawell they had improve noticeably as they adjusted to their events. “They also experienced other activities and attended their first AFL game which was Richmond verse Carlton.” Mason said he is now working through the structure of the program and the funding to create another experience like this for other indigenous runners. Some junior runners also got to experience professional running for the first time in the Bayside School Championships. Christopher Valcanis took out the Boy’s event for Brighton Grammar with Kate Wilcox winning the Girl’s event for Mentone Girls’ Grammar. The Parkdale Gift is likely to be run at an earlier time next year according to Mason who at this stage is thinking around February.
