Carers’ day to remember A CARERS’ event at Morning Star Estate, Mt Eliza, last week recognised the “unsung heroes” in the community – the parents and carers who provide lifelong, around-the-clock, care to a loved adult son or daughter. They were among more than 60 people who enjoyed excellent food, great entertainment, stunning venue, raffle and door prizes – as well as some ‘time out’ to have a normal life. Community Lifestyle Accommodation patron Judy Barrett hosted the event and the MC – Liberal candidate for Nepean Russell Joseph – spoke about why he had become involved with CLA. Professional opera singer and carer Lucy Nicolson and pianist Vaughan Wilson brought music from the ‘Best of Broadway’ to the event. Those wanting to join this proactive group to assist adults with a disability and their lifelong carers should call Marie Hell 5983 8785 or Kevin Turner 9787 3730.

Councillor pays for study tour Stephen Taylor steve@mpnews.com.au AFTER “acrimonious debate” Mornington Peninsula Shire last week knocked back a request for Cr Simon Brooks to attend the 23rd Conference of the Parties UN conference at Bonn in November from his study allowance. But the first-term councillor will still be going to Germany – and as the

shire’s official delegate – but will pay his own way. Cr Brooks said the importance of the conference to a carbon-neutral peninsula meant the trip was worth the expense. “My election platform was based on policies of environmental sustainability as well as planning,” he said. “As a 40-year-old local I have a perspective of where we are now and where we are heading. “I [told the council] I was still pre-

pared to go and pay my own way [about $8000] as long as I was under the council’s auspices.” Cr Brooks said going as council’s representative was the “only way to be able to fully participate in discussions; you need that impetus to get the most out of it. It is a privilege to go and be able to bring back knowledge”. Shire CEO Carl Cowie had earlier received council approval to attend the conference under his $30,000 study allowance, as well as trips to Sweden

to review renewable energy sites and attend the 2017 Commonwealth Local Government Conference in Malta. Cr Hugh Fraser had moved that Cr Brooks receive funding approval for the trip but this was defeated on the casting vote of the mayor Cr Bev Colomb. “This shire has a long and proud history of addressing the issue of climate change and has been a close part of that international dialogue since 2007,” Cr Fraser told the meeting.

He and then mayor Cr Graham Pittock attended the November 2015 Paris COP 21 conference along with then renewable resources team leader Jess Wingad. “The previous South Korea conference – run by the International Commission for Local government Environment Initiatives of which this council is a member – was attended by Cr [Tim] Rodgers and myself in early 2015.” Continued Page 16

Foreign tourists ‘generate jobs and money’ Stephen Taylor steve@mpnews.com.au MOONLIT Sanctuary Wildlife Conservation Park director Michael Johnson sees no problem with 61,000 international visitors coming to the Mornington Peninsula each year. He says Rye Community Group Alliance president Mechelle Cheers “shouldn’t be worried … rather, she should focus on the estimated 4.2 million day-trippers from Melbourne that visit annually”. The Pearcedale tourism operator said it was visitors from Melbourne causing traffic jams, not those from overseas. Ms Cheers is concerned about the impact of mass tourism on the peninsula – especially its effects on vegetation, animals and people (“Tourism can have downside”, The News, 10/10/17). “It is time the issue was openly discussed and debated,” she said. “This is a conversation that needs to be had – especially for the protection of the southern end of the peninsula.” Mr Johnson said Moonlit Sanctuary has more than 50,000 international visitors each year. “The advantage of the international market is that they come throughout the year, including midweek and off-peak periods,” he said. “If you want visitors on a wet Wednesday in July, international tourism is where it is at. Visitors from Melbourne

usually only turn up on weekends and holidays when the sun is shining.” Mr Johnson said big spending international visitors helped create sustainable jobs. “According to Visit Victoria figures, the average overnight international visitor to the peninsula spends $909, while domestic overnight visitors spend an average $303 and day-trippers $93,” he said. Ms Cheers’s comments were as Flinders MP Greg Hunt presented figures showing a rise in the number of international visitors to the peninsula and growth in the spending patterns of residents and local visitors. When contacted by The News, Mornington Peninsula Regional Tourism Board executive chair Tracey Cooper said “All tourists, whether domestic or international visitors, play an invaluable role in the local economy. They employ thousands directly and indirectly. The summer peak period, in particular when residents and the 24,000 holiday home owners are out enjoying the Mornington Peninsula can put a strain on resources. “One of our roles as the Mornington Peninsula Regional Tourism Board is to work with Industry and different levels of government to provide the resources and amenities necessary for locals, holiday home owner and visitors alike to get the maximum enjoyment out of our lovely region”.

Canadian Bay also has a Divison

Bid to revive Holt memorial Keith Platt keith@mpnews.com.au PROPONENTS of a new memorial for former Prime Minister Harold Holt are hoping for a major commitment from the federal government on 17 December, the 50th anniversary of his disappearance. Mr Holt’s body was never found after he went swimming with friends on that day in 1967 at the restricted Cheviot Beach. The beach was within the then-Portsea Officer Cadet School, and now forms part of the state-run Point Nepean National Park. A small stone memorial with a commemorative plaque sits above the beach while another plaque has been fixed on the underwater reef where Mr Holt was last seen. In 1968, famed architect Robin Boyd sketched a memorial at the suggestion of Holt’s friend, Ross Shelmerdine. Although that design: two 55 metre long by 3.6 metre high walls across Cheviot Beach and running into the water, is now acknowledged as being inappropriate, it could be a “catalyst, or starting point”, programming director of the Robin Boyd Foundation Tony Lee, said. “We’re certainly not proposing walls. That was designed in the 1960s and things have progressed dramatically since then, such as how to protect the natural landscape at Cheviot Beach. “I would hate to think that that [the diverging walls] is what’s being proposed.” Mr Lee said the foundation and Stephen Shelmerdine (Ross Shelmerdine’s son) would see a new architect brought in “with a view to having the memorial on the hill above the beach”. He said talks were ongoing with Parks Victoria and in-principal discussions had been held with Flinders MP Greg Hunt and Environment Minister Josh Frydenberg as well as “the relevant government people”.

“They haven’t given any commitment but have shown a great deal of interest. Josh Frydenberg and Greg Hunt are both keen.” Mr Lee was expecting the politicians to make an announcement at the site of the present unprepossessing Holt memorial on the 50th anniversary of his disappearance. He said there was no cost estimate at this stage, but thought the project was “good for both state and federal governments”. Mr Hunt’s local media advisor Mathew Langdon said on Friday that Mr Hunt’s schedule would not enable him to answer questions about the Harold Holt memorial. (The previous day Mr Hunt, who is also health minister, announced major changes to private health funds.) The sketch of Robin Boyd’s vision for a memorial at Cheviot Beach featured in a 2011 exhibition at the Mornington Peninsula Regional Gallery, Expressing the Human Spirit – Boyd’s Peninsula Houses. The sketch was tagged “unbuilt” and markedly stood out from the houses which made up the remainder of the exhibition. The two straight walls – concrete breakwaters – taper towards each other from the beach with a 25 centimetre gap at their apex. The equilateral triangle formed by the walls and the beach would create an enclosure of “safe, calm water”. “The calm water is symbolic of peace; the narrow head which the walls form is symbolic of Australia’s turning outwards, under Mr Holt’s leadership, towards her neighbours,” a paper promoting an updated version of the memorial produced by the Robin Boyd Foundation states. “The proposed memorial was presented to Governor-General Lord Casey and former Prime Minister Sir Robert Menzies who were both enthusiastic. “The project proposal did not receive the support of the Prime Minister John Gorton and so it did not proceed.” “No Backers for Holt anniversary service” – Page 15

Memorial revival: A drawing by the late Robin Boyd of what he saw as a fitting memorial to prime minister Harold Holt who disappeared from Cheviot Beach, near Portsea, on 17 December 1968. The sketch was featured in a photographic exhibition of Boyd-designed Mornington Peninsula houses at the Mornington Peninsula Regional Gallery in 2011.

AGL’s gas import plans explained

Making a point: Co-convenor of the Mornington Peninsula Greens Paul Saunders, with MPs Nina Springle and Adam Bandt at last Saturday’s public meeting. Picture: Supplied

Greens talk power and pollution CUTTING power costs and cleaning up the marine environment are on the agenda of the Mornington Peninsula branch of the Australian Greens. “So many residents on the peninsula are struggling to make ends meet with increased power prices,” co-convenor of the peninsula branch Paul Saunders said after a public meeting at Dromana Community Hall on Saturday (7 October). “It was refreshing to hear [MP for Melbourne] Adam [Bandt] speak about the future vision of the Greens to solve

this crisis through decreasing costs by using an effective mix of renewables and storage.” About 60 people were at the meeting to hear and meet Mr Bandt and [state Upper House MP] Nina Springle speak about the impacts of plastics on the marine environment and how the current energy mix affects power prices. “The issue of single-use plastic bags and microbeads entering our bay and water systems is a serious issue with many community groups now hosting regular clean-up days,” co-convenor

existing gas pipeline – the length of this pipeline will depend on the route between the jetty and the transmission pipeline,” the website states. “We will also need some plant and equipment for processes such as metering and odourisation to be installed on shore at the jetty. “The use of LNG ships is an efficient way to transport gas, either internationally or from other states in Australia. LNG shipping technology was developed to enable gas to be transported over long distances where pipelines are not economical.” Under its latest power policy the state Liberal Nationals coalition proposes that any “new” gas extracted in Victoria “would stay in Victoria for the benefit of Victorians”.. Port Phillip Baykeeper Neil Blake will also be at the meeting to speak about likely threats to the bay from population growth, urban consolidation and climate change. He will give an update on his Baykeeper citizen science program promoting community stewardship of waterways – including his project recording recent changes to beach profiles and erosion around the bay.

Kelvin Stingel said. “During the question and answer session residents asked Nina Springle about options to reduce plastic usage from doggie-bag alternatives to biodegradable plastics. “Legislation to ban single-use plastic bags will be debated in parliament on 18 October. “It’s encouraging to see the community are very interested in these matters and we will work with them to reduce the impacts of plastic into our bay and coastline.”

AGL Energy’s plans to use a floating gas terminal at Crib Point will be outlined later this month at Port Phillip Conservation Council’s annual general meeting. The power retailer’s community relations manager Jay Gleeson will provide a presentation on AGL’s assessment of options for shipping liquefied natural gas (LNG) to Crib Point from interstate and overseas. The company plans to inject the LNG into a pipeline supplying south-eastern Australia. Crib Point, in Western Port, was chosen for the floating terminal after an assessment sites around Australia (“Crib Point choice for gas terminal” The News 15/8/17). Mr Gleeson will outline of AGL’s import jetty project and its implications for Western Port Bay and Crib Point. The company’s www.engageagl. com.au website says it will buy gas “at competitive prices from Australian and international suppliers” which would be brought by ship to Crib Point. The LNG would be transferred to the floating terminal and converted back into gas before being piped into the existing transportation network. “A ship that stores the liquid gas will be moored at the existing jetty at Crib Point.

Carjacking

Rescue crews help after car’s house call POLICE were helped by CFA and SES crews at the scene of an accident in which a 60-year-old woman drove her car into a house in Steedman Drive, Mornington, Tuesday 10 October. The car crossed the front yard and partially entered a front room, badly damaging the pillar of the garage. Acting Sergeant Steve Giuliani, of Mornington police, said the woman suffered non-life threatening injuries in the incident at 3.20pm. The Mornington woman was taken to hospital by ambulance. SES and engineers helped stablise the front of the house. Nobody was at home at the time of the accident. Investigations into the cause of the accident are on-going.

Seat stolen AN outdoor seat with plaque dedicated to the memory of Joan Backhouse was stolen from lawns outside St Mark’s Church, Balnarring, overnight Wednesday 4 October. The jarrah three-seater, with the plaque mounted in middle, had been bolted onto concrete between the vicarage and the church on the Stumpy Gully Rd side of the property. Senior Constable Travis O'Donnell, of Hastings police, said the seat was valued at about $1200 but had a greater sentimental value.

A MAN with a kitchen knife forced a driver out of his van at Rye, 7.40pm, Monday 9 October, and stole it. The carjacker approached the driver in Ozone St and demanded his keys before driving off in a southerly direction. The driver was not injured. Earlier, the carjacker had approached a woman in her car in the Subway car park and demanded her keys. When she refused he asked if she was insured. She said no and he walked off east along Point Nepean Rd.

House razed A FAULTY air-conditioner is believed tyo have caused a fire which destroyed a Portsea house, 12.30pm, Friday 6 October. The owner’s daughter was alerted by a smoke alarm and ran into the lounge room of the McGregor Av house to find the unit ablaze. She tried to extinguish it before calling in emergency services and running outside. The fire quickly took hold in other rooms. Sorrento CFA captain Darren Croad said it took crews from Sorrento, Rye and Rosebud three and a half hours to extinguish.

Drug use, struggle before home intruder’s death A HASTINGS man died after a violent struggle at a house in Frankston while high on a cocktail of drugs, the state coroner has ruled in a finding released late last month. Judge Sara Hinchey said Adam Slomczewski, 44, died from cardiac arrhythmia in the setting of the struggle, as well as neck compression and amphetamine use, at a house he was robbing in Cassia Grove, Frankston in December 2015. She said Mr Slomczewski had a lengthy criminal history and spent considerable time in prison for various crimes, including theft, robbery, burglary, attempted burglary and heroin possession. He also “had a history of using illicit drugs heroin, speed and ice” which contributed to his death. The inquest was told Mr Slomczewski was robbing the house when the owner returned home and confronted him. He grappled with her and demanded money and her car keys. Neighbour Russell Harrison heard “bloodcurdling screams” from the house and ran in to see the woman pinned against a wall. She shouted to him for help. In a violent struggle in which Mr Harrison thought Mr Slomczewski was “trying to kill him”, he eventually managed to get the deceased into a sleeper hold while waiting for police to arrive. Mr Harrison said he released Mr Slomczewski when he heard sirens and when he complained he could not breathe. Soon afterwards, Mr Slomczewski “went limp”. Paramedics spent 30 minutes vainly trying to resuscitate Mr Slomczewski but he was declared dead. Judge Hinchey said the Homicide Squad had sought advice from the Office of Public Pros-

Topics

ecutions as to whether charges could be laid against Mr Harrison over the death. However, it was decided that there was “no reasonable prospect of Mr Harrison being convicted of any offence”. The Judge conveyed her sympathy to the deceased’s family and friends. Stephen Taylor

Mornington News

17 October 2017


Step back in time for look at surfing Keith Platt keith@mpnews.com.au THE backyard swimming pool is covered in plastic to keep away messy ducks. The wind, swell and tide are not quite right at the beach, but Rod Jones is a satisfied surfer. Better known as Dr Surf to listeners of radio station 3RRR, Jones sits on a creaking, weathered cane chair besides the pool at his Mt Eliza house flipping through old magazines where he identifies waves and recognises surfers. Inside his house there are surfboards in various rooms, they’re perched on the top of book cases, stashed on the floor behind couches, stored in purpose-built racks and decoratively hung on walls. Each board may be made of foam and fibre glass, but they are also filled with memories. “I saw [Craig Elmer] Owl Chapman ride that one in the Surfabout [1974-1991 Sydney-based contest] before I bought it,” Jones says pointing to the yellow and red swallow tail board on top of the bookcase. “He used to make boards to ride when he came out here [from Hawaii] and then sell them to buy a ticket home.” His interest and knowledge about surf culture and its history suits his role as organiser of the third Surf Vintage Day being held next month on the foreshore at Point Leo. An agricultural scientist with Agriculture Resources Victoria, Jones is also a committee member of the Disabled Surfers Association Mornington Peninsula branch which stands to benefit from the day. There will be about 30 display stands at the event - which is a sort of non-commercial swap and chat meet - where surfers turn up with their Volkswagen Kombis or woodies and vintage surfboards. The boards evoke memories and surfers - old DECKING T/Pine 70x22 KD ACQ ........................... $2.05mt T/Pine 90x22 KD ACQ ........................... $2.50mt T/Pine 140x22 KD ACQ ......................... $5.50mt Merbau 70x19 Random ........................ $4.40mt Merbau 90x19 Random ........................ $5.25mt Merbau 140x22 Random .................... $10.25mt

and young - without much prompting will talk about who rode a particular board on a particular day on a particular wave. It can be a little bit like memories of a high flying mark at a Grand Final. The mark gets higher as the years get more distant; the waves are often larger in the mind. Clubs and organisations represented on the day include Peninsula Surfriders Club, Maladiction Longboarders Club, the Suicide Savages and Reef Riders. Rip Curl historian Bob Smith will bring the famed bell from the Bells Beach annual contest which will displayed alongside historic photos, surfboards and magazines. The DSA will benefit through stall fees and selling food and merchandise. “It won’t be a huge money spinner, but so many people wanted it to happen,” Jones says of the vintage day, the first for three years. Jones agreed to become 3RRR’s Dr Surf 12 years ago because he felt there was not enough known about surf culture and its history. He was also concerned at the quality of surf reports printed in daily newspapers. “They were very inaccurate and could be dangerous to people who didn’t really know how to surf. It was also good to have someone actually down at the surf telling it like it was. “My first main point was to focus on surf culture - music, movies, magazines and books. But it became pretty clear early on that many listeners didn’t know anything about surfing. “If you go outside the surf media there’s virtually nothing about surfing in the mainstream media. “So I started to tell [listeners] about surfboard designs and equipment; I do annual wetsuit reviews.” One major benefit of the unpaid Dr Surf job is the access it gives Jones to people in and around the surf industry. He gives them a call and invites them onto the radio or, more rarely, records an interview.

His “memorable” interview subjects have included authors Tim Winton (“we talked about Eyrie and Breath, surfing as a metaphor for writing and the strong sense of place we develop”), William Finnegan (Pulitzer Prize winning book Barbarian Days: A Surfing Life “growing up as surfers and why we are happy our kids don’t surf”), and Phil Jarratt (“put him in front of a microphone and off he goes”.); Tom Wegener (“traditional Hawaiian boards and the Bishop Museum in Hawaii”); surfer Wayne Lynch (“talked about the movie on his life and his strong sense of place with what we called Down South - west of Cape Otway and how this has changed”); and filmmaker Andrew Kidman (“his movies Litmus and Glass Love, his tribute to Morning of the Earth, Spirit of Akasha and his music”). Jones’ “least memorable” interview never actually happened. “It was Bob McTavish, who stood me up to go surfing. Can’t say I blamed him.” Jones gave the Sunday morning slot away for a while last year but is now back on air, albeit with Mornington Peninsula-based protégé Jay Power, who Jones hopes will take over as his successor. Power is a younger surfer who appreciates that surfing can be enjoyable even without riding a wafer thin, narrow thruster (three fins) board. He can often be found on a longboard at Shoreham without a leg rope. Old school, indeed. Even though Jones hopes Power will head the segment, he only plans to “semi retire” and go down the pre-recorded interview track and avoid the Sunday morning drives to 3RRR’s Brunswick studio. Which also means he’ll have more time for weekend surfs. n The Vintage Surf Day, Point Leo foreshore, 10am-4pm Sunday 12 November. Entry $4 a car.

Memorial policy MORNINGTON Peninsula Shire wants public comment on how it should respond to requests for memorials from community groups, individuals, councillors and shire officers. The mayor Cr Bev Colomb said the shire “recognises the need to provide consistency for community members on the responsibility for repair and maintenance of commemorations across the peninsula”. “We need to ensure clarity for our community members when applying for various forms of commemorations which may include tree plantings, infrastructure - seats, fountains - plaques and artwork,” Cr Colomb said. “The draft policy aims to remove uncertainty relating to funding, responsibility and maintenance and ensures that installations are considerate of the environment and relevant to the peninsula.” Submissions close 5pm Monday 13 November.

A bumpy ride to the bottom WHILE thousands of cyclists were pedalling along the level bitumen roads between Sorrento and Dromana in Sunday’s (8 October) Around the Bay ride, hundreds of hardy riders were hurtling down towards them from Arthurs Seat. But for the riders on the hill there was no stopping for lattes or riding alongside another cyclist for a chat. There was certainly no break aboard the ferry taking riders across from one peninsula to another. Before they even reached the start of the steep, winding downhill bike trail near the Arthurs Seat summit competitors in the Red Hill Gravity Enduro faced a one kilometre hill climb. The enduro, run by Red Hill Riders Mountain Bike Club, is limited to 250 entrants who must pad up for protection as they swerve, jump and bump their way to the trail’s end at Hillview Community Reserve, in Boundary Rd, Dromana. Winners: Jeremy Hamilton, Elite Men; Jenni King, Elite Women: Andrew McCaughan, Expert Men; Ben Randall, Masters; Steve Munyard, Super Masters; Jack Hewish, under-19; Tomasz Moson, Veteran; Haydn Williams, Sport Men; Danielle Garden, Sport Women; Elise Empey, under-15 female; Tom McMahon, under-15 male; Ben Oliver, under-17.

Safety raised for choppers PENINSULA Aero Club has opened a more advanced helipad which will support airborne emergency services on the peninsula. The design caters for larger and more sophisticated helicopters which require safer, more dedicated facilities. It will supply fuel to water bombing aircraft as well as the Police Air Wing and others. “We have seen aircraft become more fuel critical during fire fights over the past few years

and this new facility will provide a much needed resource,” club vice-president Jack Vevers said. “The cost is around $400,000, with Mornington Peninsula Shire contributing $100,000 from its emergency services budget. The rest was raised by Peninsula Aero Club members as well as some from commercial investment.” Police Air Wing Inspector Craig Shepherd said: “This helipad will enhance the emergency

services capability on the peninsula and will help save lives and property.” Last year the club raised $220,000 and built a fully equipped medical emergency triage centre and respite area for fire crews. “These and the helipad will allow us to make the most of airborne first responders,” Mr Vevers said. “Because of this the peninsula will be safer and more secure this summer.” Stephen Taylor

No backers for Holt anniversary service THERE is little interest being shown from any level of government for a memorial service in December to commemorate the 50th anniversary of the disappearance of then Prime Minister Harold Holt from a beach at Point Nepean. Mr Holt was presumed drowned at Cheviot Beach on 17 December 1967, although his body was never recovered. Neither the federal, state or local governments have agreed to pay for a proposal by the Harold Holt Memorial Committee, auspiced by the Nepean Ratepayers’ Association, for a service at the beach on this year’s anniversary of his disappearance. A recommendation that Mornington Peninsula Shire give $10,000 towards the service was withdrawn from the agenda without debate at last Tuesday’s (10 October) council meeting. Economic development and tourism manager Tania Treasure, in a report to councillors, said the service planned by the ratepayers’ association marked an “important anniversary in Australian history”. “Discussions are currently being held with Harold Holt’s family and other dignitaries regarding their involvement with the service, however nothing has been confirmed,” Ms Treasure said. “Both federal and state governments along with the Liberal Party have also been asked to provide funding for the event.” In a letter to the shire, committee chairman Colin Watson said the disappearance of Mr Holt, Australia’s 17th prime minister (26 January 1966-17 December 1967), was one of the most dramatic events in the country’s political history “and is seared into the memory of many Australians”.

He said it was anticipated the memorial service would be attended by members of Mir Holt’s family and “a host of dignitaries and those who wish to honour his memory”. Mr Watson told The News on Thursday that the state government had declined to contribute towards the service, but he had not been told about the shire’s refusal. The shire’s chief financial officer Matthew Green said on Friday the request for money for the Holt memorial service “was withdrawn ... as the organising committee withdrew the funding request”. A letter to Mr Watson from Rachel Cowling in the Department of Premier and Cabinet, said “the premier [Daniel Andrews] would like to thank the Harold Holt Memorial Committee for its hard work and dedication, and wishes it all the best in its future endeavours”. Mr Watson said the service had a $30,000$40,000 budget with up to 200 people expected to attend. Russell Joseph, electorate office manager for Nepean MP Martin Dixon and candidate for the seat at the next election, said he had been “going round in circles” trying to get backing for the service from either the federal or state governments. He said the Liberal party “may have been willing” but had not made any commitment. “I’ll go myself with a mobile phone and make a speech,” Mr Joseph said. “It’s a significant event in Australia’s history, so I might do a service myself, just for the media if no one wants to turn up. I’m gobsmacked. “It costs taxpayers $12,000 an hour to run federal parliament when it’s sitting, so I thought they could have given something.” Keith Platt

Rope trick: The Koala found clinging to ropes on a mooring at Warneet was picked up by the Coast Guard’s rescue boat and then delivered home safe and almost dry to Quail Island. Pictures: Sean Hannam and Gary Sissons (boat)

Soggy koala finds solace in Coast Guard blanket COAST Guard volunteers based at Hastings had an unusual passenger on Sunday 8 October - a koala rescued from a mooring off Warneet. The koala was picked up after being found shivering on the mooring about 100 metres from the jetty. The rescue boat was on its way back to Hastings at about 9.30am after towing two men in a tinny to Warneet whose engine had broken

down off Crawfish Rock. “I saw the koala on the mooring and at first thought it was a stuffed toy,” rescue boat crew member Sean Hannam said. “We turned the engine off and I threw a blanket over him while I was standing on the ladder at the back of the boat. The rest of the crew stood on the side to balance the boat.

“The koala didn’t struggle and we took him ashore and released him on Quail Island.” Mr Hannam said it was the first time he’s been involved in rescuing a koala, although he’d been told it wasn’t unknown for koalas to be found in waters near Warneet. “Wrangling him on board and releasing him was a team job,” he said. Keith Platt

Continued from Page 1 Cr Fraser said the conference in South Korea was hosted by the City of Seoul “at their expense with no registration fees, and Cr Rodgers previously attended the UN COP 2007 Bali and 2009 Copenhagen conferences”. “There were many practical, instructive sessions at these conferences as to how the cities and regions of the world are dealing with climate change, waste and water.” Cr David Gill said the decision not to allow Cr Brooks to go overseas at ratepayers’ expense followed “acrimonious debate”. “As I’ve consistently said before, I don’t believe councillors should go [at ratepayers’ expense] on overseas or interstate trips,” Cr Gill told The News. “They are elected to look after their local area and community – they’re just local councillors.” Cr Fraser said reports made by councillors who attended “important overseas environment conferences” led to improvements. One was a shift from council being the “sustainable peninsula” to a commitment to carbon neutrality by 2021”. Cr Fraser said an audit of council’s carbon footprint was undertaken, leading to the creation of specialist department: Climate Change Energy and Water, managed by Ms Wingad. “It is that innovative department which is successfully working through practical tangible projects responding to climate change and reducing council’s carbon footprint,” he said. “It has led to the introduction of LED street lighting, finance arrangements for private investment in solar panels, solar panels on council buildings and disposal of kerbside waste other than to landfill which generates the greenhouse gases comprising 48 per cent of our carbon footprint. Cr Brooks said councillors could not gain extensive knowledge of a topic by researching online: “I am a great user of the internet and recognise its value, but one-on-one discussions at workshops and conferences with like-minded representatives are the best ways to learn, and to find nuances not on the net.”

Message from the Premier This week is Fire Action Week, a time for all Victorians to begin preparing for the summer ahead. It’s particularly important this year, with the Bureau of Meteorology forecasting a long and hot summer.

So please, talk to your family, friends and neighbours about your plans, and make sure you know when to leave and where to go to stay safe. You can also find out more information, monitor warnings and check the daily Fire Danger Ratings at emergency.vic.gov.au. Planning and preparing for fire is everyone’s responsibility. Taking the right steps now could make all the difference.

Thankfully, our dedicated emergency services are working together with communities, businesses, local councils and residents to reduce the risk for our state. At the same time, it’s important that each of us understands our own fire risks. And remember, you don’t need to live in regional Victoria to be in danger. Fires can occur anywhere.

The Hon Daniel Andrews MP Premier of Victoria

FIRE ACTION WEEK THE RIGHT TIME TO PREPARE It’s your responsibility to be ready this summer. Prepare your property, fire plan and emergency kit now. The reasons are black and white.

1. Plan what you’ll do in the event of a fire, talk to your household and know where to access information on high risk days. 2. Keep grass short. Fire can ignite and travel quickly through long grass. 3. Get rid of dry grass, leaves, twigs and loose bark around your home. 4. Remove or prune shrubs near windows and under branches of mature trees. 5. Cut back overhanging tree branches close to property – no branches within 10 metres. 6. Keep gutters and roof areas clear of leaf litter (if you are physically able to).

SMALL BUSINESSES SETTING THE TRENDS DESPITE mixed economic conditions due to exchange rate uncertainty, stock market volatility, and some market surprises, business confidence in Australia generally improved over the past 12 months, benefiting commercial and industrial property markets. The findings, released by Nichols Crowder Carrum Downs in their 2016-17 market report, show other factors spurring confidence among investors and property buyers were record low interest rates, a relatively low unemployment rate, and continued growth in the use of self managed super funds to invest in property markets. Demand from small business also increased for smaller warehouse properties to cater to both traditional and digital businesses, a surprising trend that saw almost three-quarters of all Nichols Crowder sales for the 20162017 period relate to buildings under 250 square metres. Michael Crowder, believes recent commercial and industrial property trends will continue over into 2017-2018. “In 2016 and 2017, we saw interest rates remaining low, with demand for smaller warehouses being a key market driver. With interest rates likely to stay close to historically low levels over the next 12 months, and with developers offering smaller and more affordable warehouses, we expect to see more buyers entering the market and securing these types of properties,” Mr Crowder says.

Sand loss threatens Lord Mayor’s Camp beach Stephen Taylor steve@mpnews.com.au LONG-TIME Portsea visitor Tony Clemenger warns that immediate action is needed to protect Portsea front beach near the Portsea camp, which began as the Lord Mayor’s Camp for Country Children in 1946. “If the waves are not stopped within the next 12 months the erosion on the cliff will cause their beach to close and all the trees will have to be removed before they fall over,” he said. Mr Clemenger has been holidaying at his parent’s house for the past 54 years. “It’s where my soul lives,” he said. “We need to stop the waves and slow the water to protect the beach and repair the damage before the cliff collapses and the Lord Mayor’s beach is gone forever.” In contrast, sand infill at the Point King beach was so severe that space under boatsheds that previously housed dinghies was now full of sand, he said. “I understand the problem: it is ‘Who is going to pay to fix all this?’” he said. “No [government] department is responsible [and] who would want this expense within their budget?” Mr Clemenger said the beach-erosion problem was “much worse than 12 months ago”. “Every incoming tide the beach gets smashed [by large weaves] and what was a winter-storm occurrence now happens all the time,” he said. “In the end if they do not put up a

wall and a rock groyne the pier will be decimated. Already two large trees in the pub grounds have had to be taken down and soon the remaining cypress pines will have to go or they will tumble onto the beach as the cliff itself gives way.” Mr Clemenger suggests placing rock revetments in sections at irregular intervals from the Quarantine Station all the way to the pier. These would extend 20-30 metres into the sea allowing natural flows but still providing wave protection for the beach. Last month, energy, environment and climate change minister Lily D’Ambrosio backed plans to build a rock wall to protect Portsea beach, rather than off-shore dredging or a breakwater. She told state parliament the rock

wall was a preferred option of consultants Advisian, which collected wave and sediment movement data and modelled the coastal processes at the popular beach. Their data modelling assessed six options for the long-term protection of the foreshore and the possible restoration of the former sandy strip. “The decision to select the … rock wall was based on the need to protect the foreshore environment from the impact of swell waves,” she said. “The other options, particularly the off-shore dredging and the breakwater, were not preferred due to environmental uncertainties and potential environmental impacts.” The cost of the rock wall project is put at $3 million.

Sound deal between humans and animals The residents of properties that run adjacent to the Mornington Peninsula Freeway have for a long time now been asking for sound barriers to reduce the traffic noise. Many petitions have been gathered and of late Nepean MP Martin Dixon has tabled in parliament the overdue need for these noise barriers. VicRoads has agreed that scientific studies have indicated that the noise level exceeds that of which a human can enjoy basic comfort or impairment to their hearing. The $10 million being spent on the removal of trees and erecting safety barriers will be spent and new trees replanted then, at some future time, those new trees will probably need to be removed to construct the noise reduction barriers costing even more taxpayer dollars than doing it properly in the first place. Seems crazy, doesn’t it, that even though there is an agreement that the sound barriers need to and will happen, we are getting it done in a way that is costing you and me more money? After reading that stated that native animals were being displaced because of the clearing of trees VicRoads stopped the works due to the cruelty and displacement of these animals, it dawned on me, that we have sound barriers along parts of the freeway that house nothing but cows and now we have possums and lizards getting preference over humans that live near the freeway (“VicRoads stops shredding after outcry” The News 10/10/17). I support the move by the animal welfare group that care and respect our native flora and fauna, but what about us humans? So, after talking with a few of the ring tailed possums and frill necked lizards we all agree that for the sake of their hearing, not ours, we should definitely get the sound barriers installed and if they can assist us humans and our quality of life they are more than happy to help. Steve Jones, Dromana

Scenic drive lost

out some of the most intellectually and physically disabled people in the community. This is the program’s 15th year. Under the Hastings Foreshore Precinct Plan proposed by Mornington Peninsula Shire, which includes a walkway across the club and across the slipway, the program would have to be disbanded as it would be impossible to launch and retrieve the special dinghies, many provided by local charities. The existing pontoon allowing for safe client and wheelchair access would be unusable. The Hastings boat harbour is the designated safe harbour in Western Port under the Victorian Coastal Survey as there is never a swell and tidal movements are minimal. The demise of the Sailability program, which is provided free by the yacht club and its volunteers, would be sad. We are a small, humble, community based not-for-profit organisation that provides numerous community based services, not the least Sailability. The removal of a chance for some joyful outdoor activity, in a safe and caring environment, would amount to a deprivation of opportunity for some of our community’s most disabled. Forbes Smith, Main Ridge

Green wood thieves A memo to the Dromana firewood thieves: Had you used your brains and your eyes you would have seen the pile of branches close to where the wood was stacked, which would have told you that it was recently cut and was green and unsuitable for burning. However, as you are such a bunch of low lifes as to steal from your neighbours, I am guessing that you have a low IQ to match. John J Blair, Dromana

Attention seeker

I read with delight the article regarding VicRoads halting the destruction of the vegetation on the Mornington Peninsula Freeway (“VicRoads stops shredding after outcry” The News 10/10/17). It is appalling what has occurred. The very picturesque drive to the peninsula now ruined, let alone the total disregard for the wildlife in the area. Thank goodness for the active members of our community and their persistence against this project of destruction and devastation. Thank you from my heart to all the campaigners who were involved. Sue Grimshaw, Hastings

It’s a sad state of affairs when [former prime minister] Tony Abbott, after two years of loosing leadership of his party, cannot see that he’s an irrelevant footnote to history. Unable to accept that the age of coal is truly finished and spouting his quasi-religious beliefs that climate warming is a good thing, shows just how uninformed or delusional he must be. His last ditch attempt to be relevant at a gathering of equally closedminded climate change deniers on the other side of the globe will only show him as the desperately attention seeking has-been he has become. The saddest thing about all this is the fact that if [Prime Minister Malcolm] Turnbull had any spine, we could have moved on as a country some time ago. Rupert Steiner, Balnarring

Loss for disabled

Back renewables

As a volunteer at the Hastings Yacht Club’s sailing for disabled (Sailability) program we take

If the Turnbull government has $1billion spare to spend on a handout to [Indian-based coal

miner] Adani, wouldn’t it make more sense and be better for Australia’s future if this money was deployed into developing renewable energy and offering retraining packages to miners? Australian miners know the coal industry is on the way out - and as a recent ReachTEL Survey has shown, many would jump at the chance to use their skills and be redeployed in renewable energy industries. Instead, we have the ridiculous situation where the polls constantly show the majority of Australians are against Adani and in favour of renewables. But at the same time, our federal government is trying to force AGL to keep its Liddell coal-fired power station going when AGL wants to close it. So much for the government representing the people, now it is even opposing businesses that can see the writing on the wall and are trying to do the right thing. Esther Gleixner, Flinders

Information available How can Mornington Peninsula Shire justify the expense of the CEO [Carl Cowie] and a councillor [Simon Brooks] to attend an international climate change conference in Europe? Climate change is a national government issue, not a local issue, as council tries to imply. With rates and other costs rising at above inflation rates, it would seem the CEO and councillors are only looking after themselves in rewarding themselves with junkets. Skype and downloads of information are available, rather than having council charging ratepayers to fund their trips. I would suggest if people are so interested in attending these forums they do so at their own expense. John Tingiri, Mornington Editor: Mornington Peninsula Shire councillors last week voted against ratepayer money being used for Cr Simon Brooks to attend an overseas conference but accepted CEO Carl Cowie’s right to travel to three countries.

Asthma - blame GM This year we are again facing a very, very, serious threat of (misnamed) “Thunderstorm asthma”, caused by pollen. Last November, 8500 people were hospitalised and nine died because of it. Somewhat simultaneously bees (crop pollinators) are dying off in swarms. The unproven theory of bursting pollen cells can be consigned to the same rubbish bin as all state-sponsored theories. Asthma is prevalent, as are allergies of every description. I am an old man and none of these things were prevalent in my youth, nor recorded prior, having only surfaced in the last 20 or 30 years. Why? Is it that genetically modified (GM) crops and foods are causing a disaster? I think so. Farmers, governments and giant chemical companies deny it or ridicule it, or just don’t care. Splicing a new, foreign gene into the spiral double helix of a plant has unknown consequences forward and behind the splice. The entire helix is an information code, not just the little bit. Splicing has nothing to do with evolution or breeding. God does not splice foreign genes in nature

and I agree with Him. We both know better. But the foremost beneficiary, money, prevails. I won’t touch GM foods like canola, soy or corn, but apparently 70 per cent of all processed foods are contaminated with it. Heaven forbid, but it might even be in malt and hops. Brian A Mitchelson, Mornington

Need for cameras Vandalism has occurred at the Rosebud soundshell. There doesn’t appear to be CCTV cameras in the area and this may be a good case for installations of such cameras for protection of buildings that have heritage significance. Mornington Peninsula Shire is going to spend millions of dollars on a pool n Rosebud, why not a couple of million more to protect structures of significant importance and, perhaps, assisting with the apprehension of these mindless vandals. John Cain, McCrae

Early treatment works On Monday 9 October, thousands of Australians across the country generously threw their support behind headspace day, kicking off National Mental Health Week. The day is an opportunity to educate young people on the importance of taking care of their mental health issues before they become more serious. Every year, a quarter of all young Australians will experience mental health issues and we want them to know that headspace is here to help. Research shows that 75 per cent of mental health issues emerge before the age of 25. By getting on top of issues early, the chances of recovery are greatly increased. On headspace day we asked all Australians to share their personal mental health tips, telling us how they take care of their mental health. We gathered thousands of ideas to show young people the many different ways to maintain a healthy headspace. It has been inspiring to see so many Australians share on #headspaceday, including Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull, Opposition leader Bill Shorten, musicians, sports stars, and our own headspace day ambassador, Anna Flanagan. Our headspace clinicians say talking about how we take care of our mental health can encourage others to do the same. It is just as important to take care of our minds, as it is our bodies. With 100 centres across Australia, and phone and online chat service eheadspace, over the past decade, has enabled more than 355,000 young people to access mental health care. There is still time to support headspace by visiting headspaceday.org.au, write your personal mental health tip on a headspace day postcard and share this on your social media with #headspaceday Thank you to everyone who took part in headspace day, we look forward to your support in the future. Jason Trethowan, CEO headspace, the National Youth Mental Health Foundation

No effort is being spared by the committee to make this function a success, in the way of having excellent music and a perfect floor, and a first class evening’s amusement is guaranteed at a small cost. *** THE Majestic Picture Co. gave another of their popular picture entertainments on Wednesday evening in the Frankston Mechanics’ Hall, when a number of miscellaneous pictures was screened, winding up with the “Gilded Spider”. On Wednesday next “The Silent Battle” depicting a hard struggle with a besetting sin, taken amongst the giant timbers of California, with Warren Kerrington as the man, will be shown on the screen. *** MR J. Peebles announces in our advertising columns that he has commenced business as a dairyman and produce merchant in Frankston. He has securcd the premises lately occupied by Mr Cook, adjoining the Bay View Hotel, and has had them thoroughly renovated inside and out. In order to cope with the fly nuisance in the summer time, all meats will be stored in fly proof safes, and he intends to keep a good stock of produce of all kinds, dressed and cooked

fowls, eggs, butter, cheese, etc. He is also prepared to supply fresh milk twice daily. *** GENERAL dissatisfaction is being expressed in Somerville at the action of the Postal authorities, in doing away with the 7.33am mail to Melbourne thereby making it impossible to get anything from the city on the day of ordering. The general feeling seems to be that this is a short-sighted policy and instead of putting the town ahead it will be the means of retarding its progress considerably. Representations should at once be made to the Postmaster General pointing out that the small amount of saving made is altogether inadequate to the inconvenience and loss experienced by the tradespeople at Somerville. *** FRANKSTON Court of Petty Sessions. Monday 8th Oct 1917. (Before Messrs Cohen, P.M., Williams, Oates, Grant, McLean and Borroughs J’s P. Constable Ryan charged a weekender with behaving in an offensive manner at the Frankston Railway Station on the previous Sunday. Evidence was adduced that the defendant, when asked for his ticket by a porter at the station he used insulting words and otherwise misconducted himself. The defendant pleaded that he had been the worse for drink and did not know what he was doing, and expressed sorrow for the occurrence. The bench decided to deal leniently with the accused, and after administering a severe rebuke made a fine of 10s

which was paid. Jesse Steele was charge by the police with being in unlawful possesion of a stump jack. From the evidence brought out it appears the jack in question was claimed by J. Murray, of Langwarrin, who lost it in 1914. Steele was in the habit of borrowing the implement. On the 24th of May 1914 it was lying on the road where he had been working with it, and two days afterwards it was gone. Defendant used to pass along the road where the jack was lying while going to and from his work. On the 1st of August last the complainant, in company with Const. Ryan, went to Lloyd’s place and saw the jack there on a private road near by and identified it as his property. Had never given or sold it to anyone. He had a conversation with defendant on 2nd August, said he had gone to Trafalgar to see his father, who while there, gave him the jack, but if he (Murray) thought it was his property he had better take it. Defendant and his son swore that the jack was the former’s property but the Bench decided that the weight of evidence was in favor of complainant and made an order for £5 1s with costs. The defendant gave notice of appeal. Monday 15th October 1917. Before Messrs Sherlock and Oates J’sP. Const. Ryan v A Ryan. Failing to cause Laurence Ryan to attend school required number of days - Fine 2s 6d. M. Parker for two similar offences was fined 2s 6d in each case. W A. Towler, auctioneer, applied for

an order to eject his tenant, T. Reeves, from premises known as The Grange, at Frankston. Mr Fitchett appeared for complainant and defendant was represented by Mr Cook. Richard Taylor, a clerk employed by complainant, gave evidence that he served the notice of proceedings on Mrs Reeves and read the notice to her. Mr Cook raised the technical objection that Taylor had not explained the meaning of the notice as required by the Act and asked for a dismissal on this ground. Mr Fitchett contended that the notice, on being read, explained itself. After lengthy argument by counsel, the Bench upheld the technical point raised by Mr Cook and dismissed the application. *** ECHOES from the Front. WHERE ARE THE BOYS WE KNOW We have received the following letter for publication, from Private A. Hague, AAMC Details, 67th Battalion, A I.F.Dear Sir,—I am just writing a few lines to let you all know how I am getting on, as I hear they have been asking lately. Well so far I have kept in the best of health and hope to continue so. I also trust the residents of Frankston are keeping in the best of health. I have only met a few of the boys while in Egypt, they were W. Clements. Sgt. Kerr and one of the post office boys. I had a very enjoyable time in Egypt. At first there was plenty of hard work to do, but later it eased off and we were able to have a fair time

in travelling to different places round about Cairo, and seeing things of great interest. I was unable to get to Anzac and so far have been unable to go to France through being under age. I am now with a Battalion, but still there is doubt as to whether I will be going out there with them, for I am still under age for a few months yet. I then expect to get there. Since I have been in England I have again met Bill Clements and also Les. Gunther. Both are looking well and playing in bands. I was then stationed at Buford Military Hospital, but have at last been able to get a change and more interesting work. I have been stationed in England for the last twelve months and have been on leave several times. Once to Manchester, where I landed through getting in the wrong train when I should have gone to Sheffield, but for all that I had a good time visiting the Munition Works and being taken to a Garden Fete at Theatre Park and when on leave to London I visited the British Museum Art Gallery and Buckingham Palace. They are very interesting to see. I was one of the thousands the King reviewed a few months back, on Salisbury Plain. Well Sir, I think I have told you all the news as near as possible in brief, so I now close, trusting the Frankston friends are all well. I remain, One of the Frankston Boys. *** From the pages of the Mornington Standard, 20 October 1917

Join the Car Ferry Conversation Frequently Asked Questions

The community and industry engagement for the Stony Point to Cowes Vehicle Ferry is underway, and to date more than 1,000 residents and businesses have joined the conversation through the surveys, social media, workshop and small group meetings. Through the conversation, a few questions have been raised. Frequently Asked Questions Q. Why do we need another study for a Vehicle Ferry? A. Regional Development Victoria, Bass Coast Shire and the Mornington Peninsula Shire have commissioned an independent review of the feasibility of the vehicle ferry due to increasing visitor numbers, the opportunity to create a world-famous touring route, pressures on emergency response to crisis events, the potential for employment and education opportunities and the potential for a vehicle ferry to be a vital link in the public transport network. Some interesting findings to date: • 46,000 visitor trips by the touring market to regional Victoria exclude the Mornington Peninsula and Phillip Island, worth an estimated $7-8M in additional visitor expenditure per annum.

Q. How will the environmental impacts be addressed? The business case will identify primary environmental risks and impacts of different options and define the environmental monitoring requirements. Impacts to be considered will include: wake-wash, air, noise, water and visual pollution, traffic congestion and parking, sand movement, and dredging (if required). • It is expected an extended period of environmental monitoring (up to 2 years) will follow the business case. • If the project progresses, all standard development application and environmental management requirements will apply, including EIA, Parks Victoria and Coastal Management requirements.

Q. What would the vehicle ferry service mean for community lifestyle and traffic congestion? Both Cowes and Stony Point already experience traffic congestion in peak times, and French Island does not have sufficient road infrastructure to cater for increased traffic. The Business Case will use current data and existing traffic studies to project the impact of the ‘base case’ ferry on traffic volumes and parking. • The previous studies have identified the need for between 15-30 additional car spaces to cater for the additional vehicle numbers.

Q. How many vehicles will come off the ferry and how often? The Business Case is being developed with a ‘base case’ of a 30-40 car ferry, operating 10 ferry services per day, with 5 arriving at Phillip Island and 5 arriving at Stony Point (French Island yet to be confirmed). • Comparable services operate at 38% of capacity. This would equate to an average of 18 vehicles per trip. • The ferry terminal primary investigation sites are: ◦ Stony Point is immediately adjacent to the existing jetty. ◦ Cowes is between Mussel Rocks and the Caravan Park. ◦ Tankerton (French Island) is also being examined through this study.

THE MEANING OF EXISTENCE... AND OTHER SHORT STORIES

The Long and the Shorts of it By Stuart McCullough IT’S here at last. For a moment there, I thought the world was so much in the grip of ‘Game of Thrones’ that winter was not so much coming as it was moving in permanently, taking up residence on the couch like an unwanted backpacker, determined to stay as long as possible and eat all the good cereal. But despite all signs to the contrary, it turns out winter is not eternal after all. Spring has arrived and springs, if not eternal then belatedly. Hooray. There’s definitely a shift in mood. For months on end, weekend walks to the local oval see us encounter people hugging boundary line fences, hands in their coat pockets, cheering on their son or daughter. Suddenly, we’re in that twilight zone between the end of the football season and the start of cricket. The oval is completely abandoned. It can’t be denied - spring has arrived and, once more, I must face the fashion conundrum that is ‘shorts’. Secretly, I think I fear shorts. They simply don’t offer the kind of security you get from a really good pair of pants. And if shorts sound like an odd thing to be afraid of, I can only point out that I grew up in the seventies and have experienced, first hand, the best and worst that the world of shorts has to offer. Be they long, short, loose or horrifyingly snug; I’ve seen and worn them all. As a decade, the seventies have a lot to answer for. Flares, stagflation and the musical abomination that was Van McCoy and the Soul City Symphony’s demonic earworm ‘The Hustle’. (Apologies if by mere reference

to ‘The Hustle’ that little flute line is now stuck in your head for the rest of the day.) Those of us who grew up in that era were exposed to the full horror. My first shorts would have been remarkable for two reasons – the white piping around the edges and that highthigh split. To think of those shorts,

even now, makes me feel slightly exposed. My father was a big fan of the formal short. That’s the pair of short pants you can safely wear to work or church and not feel underdressed. Unlike most pairs of shorts, these could form part of a summer suit. His preferred

shorts were baby blue and came with a white belt. Naturally, he wore them with long socks. It is unfathomable to me that people once wore them in an office environment, but I can even recall teachers donning shorts in the classroom. How things have changed. As I grew older, wearing shorts was something largely synonymous with going to school. In a very real sense, these were my own formal shorts and I even wore them with long socks. For crying out loud, I even had little strips of elastic that I used to keep my socks up. Ideally, these homemade garters would be tight enough to keep your socks up but not cut off the circulation to the lower part of your leg. I couldn’t tell you the last time I required a pair of garters. We didn’t wear shorts all year, just the warmer months. And there was always a point at which you had to decide whether to make the switch from long pants to short. Almost inevitably, the first day felt like a day too soon but, before long, trousers were forgotten until next year, when they’d be retrieved and you’d discover you’d grown about six inches and were no longer any use. The other key pair of shorts was the footy short. These, almost without exception, were far too tight. I was the kind of kid that only wore footy shorts when playing footy. Others, however, considered them their ‘go to’ shorts, fit for almost any occasion other than a court appearance. Those kids were cooler. Heading to the Milk Bar with my parents, local youths in footy shorts lingered outside, lean-

ing against their dragsters. My shorts probably said ‘Hang Ten’ on them and I wished I was invisible. Those kids had a kind of freedom I could only imagine. James Taylor once said he’d seen fire and he’d seen rain. I, however, have seen acid wash denim shorts of a kind that defy description and, to this day, terrify my imagination. At a certain point, fashion required that shorts become a lot less short, to the point that they kind of became pointless. I’m talking about the long pair of shorts that reaches well beyond the knees where the line between a long pair of shorts and a short pair of long pants becomes painfully blurred. As I recall it, these shorts covered the knees extremely well but often failed to cover ‘the tradesman’s smile’ when bending over. It is hard to imagine a more extreme design flaw. Don’t get me wrong – it’s not just history that makes me reluctant. It’s also a safety thing. I have (quite frankly) a spectacular set of pins. But they are incredibly pale. By ‘pale’ I don’t simply mean lacking a tan, I mean north-of-the-wall, white walker pale. Albino pale. Avert your eyes lest the brightness might damage your retina kind of pale. So whilst I’m as happy as anyone to see that the longest of winters is now finally over, forgive me if I stick to long pants. The world has suffered enough. And that, I feel, is the long and the shorts of it. stuart@stuartmccullough.com

Peninsula Old Boys off to a flyer PROVINCIAL

By IT Gully PENINSULA Old Boys and Mt Eliza are the only undefeated teams in MPCA Provincial and stand alone at the top of the ladder. At the other end, Crib Point and Pearcedale remain the only teams without a victory in the opening two games of the season. POB has started its season in dominant fashion, belting Crib Point by nine

wickets in the season’s second straight one-day fixture. The Magpies batted first on their home deck and failed to make it to the end of its allotted 40 overs, bowled out in the 38th for just 103. Jon Forrest was at his vintage best, snaring 3/13 from eight overs, while Eivion Bowen, Tom Shayler and James LaBrooy all finished with two wickets. Neil Clark top scored for the Pies with 27. In reply, devastating POB opening

batsman Dylan O’Malley treated the Pies’ bowlers with contempt, blasting an unbeaten 71, which included nine boundaries and four sixes, as the vistitors hit the total in 13.2 overs. Mt Eliza also picked up its second straight win, beating Sorrento at Emil Madsden Reserve. The home team batted first and made 9/160 from its 40 overs, Keith Biggs top scoring with 42, while Chathupama Gunasinghe broke his Australian drought, claiming 3/45 for the Sorras.

In reply, Justin Grant stepped up to the plate with the ball for the Mounties, claiming 3/22 as his side rolled Sorrento for 147 in 37.2 overs. Corey Harris top scored for the visitors with 36. Langwarrin beat Pearcedale to claim the Bushman’s Cup, winning by 13 runs. Andy Johnson was the difference between the sides, opening with 89 for the Kangas, while Kaine Smith claimed 5/25 for the Dales. Pearcedale was then bowled out for

162, Matt Campbell picking up 3/28 and Jake Prosser 3/51. Mornington picked up its first win of the season, beating Baxter with three overs to spare. Chris Brittain was claimed by Cameron Moon for six after scoring 100 in round one. Joe Rule top scored for Baxter with 44.

Jewell makes his mark PENINSULA

A long walk in the park: Long Island dispatched Delacombe Park with nine wickets in hand. Picture: Andrew Hurst

By IT Gully NEW Main Ridge coach Nick Jewell stamped his authority on the MPCA Peninsula competition with a menacing and unbeaten 161 on Saturday against Moorooduc. Jewell came to the crease with the score at 1/31 and put on 131 with Shaun Foster, who eased into the season with a lazy 86 runs in his first hit for the year. When Jewell left the field with Gareth Wyatt (32no), his side had scored a massive 3/302. The Ridge bowlers then got to work and rolled the Ducs for just 109 with Foster claiming 3/11, Oliver McEnroe 3/24 and James Abbott 3/20. Long Island made light work of Delacombe Park, chasing down victory with nine wickets in hand. Stuart Swift picked up 3/20 for the Islanders and James Paxton and Andrew Tweddle each claimed 2/19, as the Parkers were bowled out for 135. Aaron Paxton then scored 61 and Ed Pubudu an unbeaten 36 as the Islanders reached the total three wickets down. Somerville made it two wins from

two matches, smashing Pines with ease. In a match that belonged to the bowlers, Somerville’s boom recruit Jayde Herrick took 5/23 as his side defended its 10/128, bowling out the Piners for 114. Pines opener Damien Lawrence and Somerville’s Nick Marshall top scored for the day with 48 runs each. Red Hill picked up its first win of the season, holding off Flinders to win by 17 runs. The Hillmen batted first at BA Cairns Reserve and it was skipper Simon Dart who top scored with 73, while Matt Merifield hit 38 and Tim Collett 36 from 39 deliveries. Matt Burns was the pick of the Sharks’ bowlers with 2/22 and Flinders skipper Neil Barfuss claimed 2/47. In reply, Flinders just couldn’t get their noses in front in the chase. Despite batting the 40 overs, the home side fell short, restricted to 8/171 with Blake Hogan-Keogh top scoring with 48 and Mason Mail hitting 41. Jimmy McCall claimed 2/26 for Red Hill with the ball, Glenn Collett snared 2/39 and Tom Collett bowled his eight overs for a return of 1/20.

Demons show fight against Heatherhill DISTRICT

By IT Gully IT’S been a long time between wins but Rye celebrated one very hard on Saturday night after chasing down Heatherhill with one over to space in MPCA District cricket. The Demons let themselves down with an extremely poor performance in round one, however, they were superb with the bat on Saturday. Heatherhill batted first and made a very healthy 6/215 with Sam Mullavey opening with 75, Steven O’Donnell batting with him at the top of the order scoring 43 and Kristian Miller hitting 41. The Demons used seven bowlers, Zac Stevenson the best of them with 2/28. Rye skipper Matt Whelan then led his side to victory, scoring 66, while Tim Symons belted seven fours and six sixes in his unbeaten 69. The visitors looked shaky as wickets began to fall quickly, however

Cam Dunn’s nine to stay with Symons led the team to victory. Seaford Tigers made light work of Hastings, inflicting the Blues’ second hiding in as many weeks. The Tigers batted first after being sent in and made 6/228, before rolling the Blues for just 86. Mitch Floyd (32) and Isuru Dias (13) were the only Blues batsmen to score runs in the double figures. Baden Powell’s Rhys Elmi top scored with 55 as his side beat Rosebud and became the only unbeaten side after two rounds. The Braves didn’t appear to have done enough after scoring just 9/134 after winning the toss and batting. Jason Nagel picked up 2/25 for the Buds and Nathan O’Sullivan claimed 2/21. The Braves did step up to the plate with the ball though, rolling Rosebud for 104 in 38 overs. Jason Mathers top scored for the Buds with 32 and skipper Billy scored 31.

17 October 2017

Michael Ballard was the pick of the bowlers for the Braves with 3/14 from 6.4 overs, while Elmi capped off a great game with 2/16. Mt Martha picked up its first win with a strong performance against Seaford. The Reds batted first and Jarred Wolsgrove top scored with 50 while Matthew Pollock hit 43 and keeper Rob Dillon 28. Faisal Payenda was the best of Seaford’s bowlers with 3/26. While Dean Polson hit 50 for Seaford, it wasn’t enough, the home side bowled out in 30 overs. Kyle Bendle was the best of Mt Martha’s bowlers with 4/16 from seven overs.

By Toe Punt THE Dolphins have appointed St Kilda assistant coach Adam Skrobalak as senior coach for the next two seasons. Skrobalak, who will continue his role at St Kilda in a part-time capacity, as well as coaching Dolphins, is a former premiership coach in both the Bellarine and Geelong and District League, as well as holding assistant roles at Port Melbourne VFL and Western Jets in the TAC. According to Dolphins General Manager Gary Buckenara, Skrobalak’s signing “heralds a most exciting period for the club. “Upon reinstatement of our VFL Licence a few months ago the club has set itself a clear goal to establishing itself as the “hub of football on the Peninsula” and once again provide every football lover on the Peninsula with a VFL team that they can call their own,” Buckenara said. “Adam is fully supportive of our aim to develop local talent and involve ourselves in community football. This broader coaching role will take up three quarters of his week and allows Adam to also continue his role at the St Kilda FC on a part time basis. “The outcome is that for the first time our coach will have a full time commitment to football and be able to truly lead our club into the semi-professional era that is VFL football. “He will also have continued contact with trends, training technology

and tactics at AFL level which will only increase his value to us. Skrobalak said he was extremely excited to be appointed as Senior coach of the Dolphins. “I fully understand the challenge ahead as we re-enter the VFL and our aim is to create an elite football environment where players can challenge themselves at VFL level and as a group work to become a revered football club both on and off field,” Skrobalak said. “Personally, the opportunity to coach in my own right and lead the on field direction of such a proud club is an honour,” he said. In more exciting news for the Dolphins, they have partnered with

St Kilda Football Club to support the Southern Saints, who are set to become an important part of the women’s football pathway as St Kilda prepares for entry into the AFL Women’s Competition in 2020. The move comes after the Seaford Football Netball Club, in consultation with AFL Victoria, opted to transfer its VFL Women’s licence to St Kilda. St Kilda General Manager of Football Performance Jamie Cox said the time is right for a St Kilda team to enter the competition in partnership with the Dolphins. “There are more than 170 girls and women’s teams in the peninsula region, making it arguably the strongest talent base in Australia,” Cox said.

Strikers swamped by O’Dell tsunami SOCCER

By Craig MacKenzie LOCAL soccer will never quite be the same after Peninsula Strikers announced last week that it had appointed a human tsunami called Andy O’Dell as senior coach. There has been much speculation as to the fall-out from Strikers’ relegation from State 2 South-East this year but re-elected president Trevor Johnston and his committee, which includes former coach Craig Lewis, have made a clear and unambiguous statement of intent. Ex-English pro O’Dell is renowned for his forthright views and scant regard of political correctness and he didn’t waste time in offering a blunt assessment of what needs to be done to revive Strikers’ fortunes. “I’ve spoken to a couple of players there already and the rest can pack their bags,” said O’Dell. Even the club president was unable to escape the blunt O’Dell approach. “As soon as he appointed me I retired him. I told him there’s no room in my squad for 40-year-olds.” And the shocks kept coming. “I’ve got four lads from the UK that are coming to Strikers and I’ve already got 10 local players keen to come down here,” said the man who guided Altona City to this year’s State 2 North-West championship and the Victorian State 2 title. “Wait till you see some of the names that are coming. You’ll be surprised.” Aron Wilford is one of those names. The big English central defender is now 35 and he’s played with Southern Stars, Dandenong Thunder, Bentleigh Greens, Oakleigh Cannons and St Kilda. Wilford will hold a meeting with Strikers tonight (Monday) with a view to signing on as assistant playercoach. “The four boys from overseas know what’s expected of them. “This is the deal – play with us for a year and get us promoted and if you want to stay that’s okay but if you want to move that’s okay too. “They’re paying their own airfares over here so basically we’ve got to get them a job and sort out their accommodation. “They’re all under 24 and they’re dead keen to come over.” O’Dell can lay claim to being the winningest coach in Victorian soccer. Eleven promotions in 18 seasons speaks for itself. He had 10 years as a professional player in England. He was with local club Hull City as a junior then joined

Grimsby as an apprentice and made his senior debut as an 18-year-old midfielder against Chelsea at Stamford Bridge. O’Dell was in the 30-man England squad preparing to come to Australia for the World Youth Cup Finals in 1981 but when that squad was pruned to 20 he missed out on selection. He also has a vivid memory of the first time he came face to face with Scottish and Derby legend Archie Gemmill at the old Baseball Ground in Derby. “Our manager told me to stick close to Gemmill but to be honest the closest I got to him was in the bar after the game. He was magnificent, easily the best player I ever played against.” O’Dell also played with Rotherham, Torquay and Darlington before coming to Australia for the 1988 season and ironically it was the man who he has replaced at Strikers, Willie Raynes, who contacted him about coming here. O’Dell, Raynes and Phil Stubbins were mainstays in the Terry Hennessey-led Heidelberg United side which won the 1988 State League championship.

O’Dell also played for Fawkner, Morwell Falcons, Perth Croatia, Croydon and Mitcham. His coaching resumé lists stints at Mitcham, Chelsea Hajduk, Whittlesea Stallions, Richmond, Northcote, North Coburg, Dandenong Thunder, Sunshine George Cross, Bentleigh Greens, Fawkner, Preston Lions, Cairnlea and, of course, Altona City. He joined Altona City in 2016 after the club had played seven games and lost five. O’Dell brought in new players and the club was undefeated for the remainder of the season just missing out on promotion. Getting the club into State 1 was his goal in 2017 and he did it in style winning the championship with a three-point margin over Hopper’s Crossing and recording a 4-2 victory over Eltham Redbacks in the state final. “I felt that I’d taken the club as far as I could and I sat down with them and explained my point of view so there was no animosity when I left.” O’Dell was immediately in demand with two NPL2 clubs offering him the senior coaching position.

“I knocked back both of them. One of them hadn’t even sacked the coach! “I came down to Strikers to meet with Trevor. It had been a long time since I’d been down to the ground and when I looked at the set-up I just thought to myself ‘I like it here. It’s nice’. “I’m not going to mess about. I’ve come here to get promoted and my plan is to get this club into division one. “There’s going to be a massive revamp of the squad and when we start pre-season training it’s going to be full-on. “There will be players coming, players going, players getting upset but it’s full steam ahead no matter what.” Pre-season training starts in earnest on Tuesday 9 January. There will be another training session two nights later then O’Dell has scheduled three sessions a week for the next 10 weeks with training on Monday, Wednesday and Friday. “This club has everything, apart from the team. “When coaches go to clubs if they

don’t bring players with them they usually end up struggling. “I live fairly central (in Sandringham) and I know lots of players in fact I’ve probably spoken to about 40 players since taking this job. “I think I can get this club back on the map and I think that’s important for the game down this way. “I want to have a good working relationship with Gus (Macleod) at Langwarrin and ‘Jamo’ (Adam Jamieson) at Mornington especially with regard to the movement of players. “The people that know me know how much I like winning and I want to bring the good times back to this club.” Meanwhile NPL giant Oakleigh Cannons announced last weekend that it had won the race for the signature of Mornington ace Ryan Paczkowski. “Oakleigh seemed like the right fit for me as I’ll play as the number 9 and I also liked their ambitions,” said Paczkowski. “Thankfully Mornington understands my decision. “I’m sad to be leaving. I love the club and if we had gone up I would have stayed but I’d like to play at the top while I’m still able to.” It’s believed that the ex-Bentleigh Greens star attracted offers from his former club along with bids from Bulleen, Northcote City and Dandenong City. Paczkowski leaves Dallas Brooks Park as State 1 South-East’s Golden Boot winner. FFV finally released its 2017 State Leagues best and fairest votes and Golden Boot winners last week. The hold-up was due to outstanding referees’ votes albeit that the league season ended in early September. Rosebud Heart star David Greening added the 2017 best and fairest award to his Golden Boot honour in State 4 South. That’s his third league best and fairest award. He topped the voting a few seasons back but was ineligible due to suspension. In other news Southern United is on the lookout for a new technical director after the resignation of Mark Cassar. The women’s NPL club also has called for expressions of interest in the senior coaching post and the position of youth team coach. Applications close this Wednesday 18 October and applicants should email the club at southernunitedfc@ gmail.com.

New and improved sports facilities in Rosebud By Ben Triandafillou MEMBERS of the Rosebud sporting community can look forward to a new sporting pavilion complex at Olympic Park Recreation Reserve, Rosebud. Council approved the tender for works on Tuesday 10 October and it is anticipated that construction will begin in January 2018 with hopes for it to be completed by September next year. The new single level pavilion has been designed to better meet the needs of local sporting groups and will include: six multipurpose change

rooms, unisex toilet and shower facilities, store rooms, a first aid room, accessible toilets and external public toilets. Contract works also include refurbishment of the existing social room office and toilets, a new scoring box, external landscaping, sealed vehicle parking (20 spaces), pedestrian paths and upgrading of utility services to the site. These works will be carried out as part of the council’s Sports Pavilion Strategy which requires facilities to meet current and future needs of the community and sporting clubs.

To minimise disruption to users and local sporting competitions, the existing sports pavilion social room will remain in operation for the duration of the building works. Portable change rooms, showers and toilets will also be provided to accommodate the clubs during competition times. The new building will feature sustainable design with durable materials and low energy lighting. Windows will be orientated for natural lighting and ventilation rather than using mechanical heating and cooling. Water savings will be achieved using water efficient taps and cisterns along with Tough players: 16-year-old Box Hill rugby player Thomas Klein competes at the Victorian Wheelchair Rugby Classic. Picture: Aaron Upson

Wheelchair rugby kicks off Frankston festival RIO 2016 Paralympic gold medallist’s opened this year’s Frankston Festival of Rugby with the intense, end-to-end Victorian Wheelchair Rugby Classic. For the first time in the Frankston Festival’s history, the Victorian Wheelchair Rugby Classic was played at the Frankston Basketball Centre, Seaford on Friday 6 and Saturday 7 October. With Australia currently ranked world number one in wheelchair rugby, the full contact sport attracted four Victorian teams as well as a New South Wales side. Disability Sport and Recreation wheelchair rugby officer, Jason Lees,

said the event gained great support and was highly competitive. “The event went really well and the team from NSW were really supportive of it and want to come back next year,” Lees said. “The Victorian Rugby Union has gotten behind us as well as the Frankston City Council to continue to run this event. “We want to make this something that grows and have it bigger and better next year to show what the sport is about. “We were really happy to put this event on in Frankston, and hopefully in the future more people will get out

and see the sport for what it is and enjoy it.” In the final, the Harlequins Rugby Club defeated the Unicorns 27-22, with Harlequins player, Matt Lewis, awarded most valuable player of the tournament. The Wheelchair Rugby Classic was contested by both males and females and didn’t have an age restriction. “The youngest player we probably had there was a 16-year-old Box Hill player, Thomas Klein. He’s been playing for 12 months and is still in high school,” Lees said. “If you’re good enough to play then you’ll get selected.”

Mornington Peninsula Shire mayor councillor Bev Colomb said the shire is committed to improving the quality of our sporting pavilions for all. “It will be great to see the facilities revamped to improve conditions and meet current standards for unisex use”. Seawinds Ward councillor Antonella Celi said, “The Seawinds Ward Councillors have worked with Shire Officers and key stakeholders from Rosebud Senior and Junior Football, Cricket and Netball Clubs to ensure the best possible outcome for our

community”. Councillor Simon Brooks from the Seawinds Ward added, “Traction on these works is great news for our thriving sporting groups. Temporary portable change rooms have been in place for several years and it’s time for an upgrade”. Fellow Seawinds councillor Frank Martin concluded, “The Rosebud Football, Cricket and Netball Clubs have seen significant recent growth in female participation. These enhancements will help continue that trend and improve conditions for existing players”.

Basketballers take a shot at Southern Cross Challenge By Ben Triandafillou FRANKSTON and the Mornington Peninsula will have 15 junior basketballers competing in next year’s Southern Cross Challenge held at the State Basketball Centre, Wantirna South. Chosen from a series of selection camps across the year, the players will gain an insight into elite development and higher-level gameplay across the four-day tournament which begins Friday 19 January 2018. The Frankston Blues will have four representatives competing in the Victorian Metropolitan divisions with Lachlan Dines, Kynan Philippe and Gabriel Gallego in the under-14 boys and Mackenzie Mitchell in the under-14 girls. Frankston Blues chairman, Chris Beattie, said it’s a credit to the program that the kids are achieving these lofty goals and joining these teams. “They are some of our brightest talent and we will continue to support them to help them achieve their potential in their chosen sport,” he said. The Blues players will be joined by two Mornington Breakers players with Zoe Harvey joining the under-14 girls and Mia Newman joining the under-15 girls. Mornington Basketball operations manager, Sam Browne, said that the club is very excited to have the girls competing at the tournament. “Both girls have shown a great deal of commitment and have been stand out players throughout the season,” she said. “We are very excited about the prospects of all of our girls coming through our program.” The Southern Peninsula Sharks will

also have nine representatives at the tournament competing in the Victoria Country divisions. The Sharks representatives are Steve Ranisavljev and Billy Wilson in the under-14 boys; Jasmine Amendola, Chantelle James and Rebecca Rylance in the under-14 girls; Benjamin Fisher and Darcy Jones in the under-15 boys, and Bella Breen and Amber Grant in the under-15 girls. Basketball Victoria’s high performance coach metropolitan, Michael Czepil, said this year’s selected groups for Victoria Metropolitan will continue to showcase the elite talent playing at metropolitan associations. “The Southern Cross Challenge is a great opportunity for our budding athletes to compete against some of the best basketball talent from around the country,” Czepil said. “A number of elite Victorian Metro representatives have used the SCC as a major part of their basketball pathway and we expect nothing different from this group of athletes.” Basketball Victoria’s high performance coach country, Justin Schueller said the country contingent – selected for their tryouts at Shepparton – will set up their elite basketball journeys in tandem with the National Intense Training Program selections. “SCC is an important step for our elite country athletes as they progress further into the country high performance pathway,” Schueller said. “Selection into SCC from Country Victoria is an amazing achievement and coupled with NITP, it showcases our best juniors and gives them an opportunity to become better players and people on and off the court.”

King crowned elite women’s champion at Enduro THE Mornington Peninsula born girls dominated the elite women’s category of this year’s Red Hill Gravity Enduro which was held on Saturday 7-8 October. With some top performances on the Arthurs Seat track, Jenni King (1st), Ellie Wale (2nd) and Kathryn Visser (5th) filled three of the five podium positions at the Red Hill Gravity Enduro. For King, it was a return to both her home town and mountain bike racing after a year away from the sport. “I had a few nerves leading into the Red Hill Gravity Enduro,” King said. “However, I pretty quickly relaxed, enjoyed the trails and was lucky to have a great bunch of girls

to ride, and enjoy the amazing views, with. “The trails that made up the six race stages were some of the best I’ve ever ridden and I had such a fun time pushing my limits down them. To finish up on top of the podium was a bonus to cap off a great day out.” No longer racing competitively, King returned for this one off event to support her new local club of the Red Hill Mountain Bike Riders. “I’ve only just joined the club because they’re so proactive and doing a lot of things for the sport,” she said. “It was a big event for the peninsula so I wanted to be a part of it. “I just treated it as a really good day out. I was obviously racing hard

but still wanted to enjoy it. “It was a lot less stressful and turned out to be a really good day. Having previously competed as a triathlete, King was inspired by mountain biking at the Sydney Olympics in 2000 and decided to try her hand at another competitive sport. “I just kept getting injured running in the triathlons so I went out and bought a bike and tried it out,” she said. “Although I’ve stopped riding competitively I still enjoy riding and keeping fit. “It was a combination of factors which stopped me riding competitively. I had some bad injuries and my hip joint still isn’t the same and I had become tired of training to stay

at the elite level. “It was good and it was fun to be at the top level competing. There are always nice people involved which is part of the reason why I do the sport, but there is a lot of hard-work that you need to put in and don’t get paid for and it takes a lot of time out of your day. King hasn’t left the industry entirely and now coach’s mountain biker riders through her business, Pedal Lab. “The girl that came in second I actually used to coach when she was racing cross country, she said. “She’s a very talented young downhiller.” “I hadn’t met the girl that finished in third until the event but she was a really nice young girl and has a really bright future.”
