Policing in a state of emergency Stephen Taylor steve@mpnews.com.au AVOIDING close contact with other people is a luxury police cannot afford. Their role in the state of emergency brought on by COVID-19 is a combination of things they have never done before and things they have always done, but with the added fear of being exposed to a new, unseen enemy.

Officer-in-charge of Mornington police station Senior Sergeant Paul Edwards said his staff had been told to “keep their distance [from people] to limit their possible exposure” to the virus as directed by the Chief Health Officer. “There are only so many precautions we can take as we still need to deal with offenders, which involves close contact and sometimes close physical

contact,” he said. “Our normal business continues, but we now are attending to tasks for alleged COVID-19 breaches.” Senior Sergeant Edwards said many discussions had taken place “both locally and organisationally” on safety for police and the public. “We receive daily communication regarding restriction updates, safety updates and how we should be approaching the public

in regard to COVID-19 breaches,” he said. One obvious extra precaution police have taken is closing reception counters across the Mornington Peninsula. “Cleaning station buildings, vehicles and equipment has increased,” Senior Sergeant Edwards said. Other small changes in day-to-day business relating to police and public safety “were too numerous to mention”.

He said an officer’s main concern was “contracting the virus, getting sick and passing that on to work colleagues and family”. Senior Sergeant Edwards said there were not enough masks or gloves to go around. “Personal protection equipment is used when dealing with offenders or mental health patients, but that equipment is put on prior to dealing with them.

Car park health help for Indigenous Keith Platt keith@mpnews.com.au HUNDREDS of Aboriginal and Torres Strait islanders and their families have being vaccinated against the flu and tested for COVID-19 at car park clinics in Frankston and Hastings. Those attending the clinics are met by medical staff wearing masks and, in some cases, gowns bought online from food industry suppliers. The clinics are run by First Peoples' Health and Wellbeing, whose CEO Karinda Taylor says the peninsula needs a health service controlled by the Aboriginal community “if we are ever going to make headway on closing the health gap in the area”. Thomastown-based First Peoples' Health and Wellbeing was earlier this year hoping to obtain federal government finance for a comprehensive health service in Frankston and on the peninsula but the “funding round” was abandoned because of the COVID-19 emergency (“Aboriginal health ‘misses out’ on health ‘boost’’’ The News 10/12/19). Health Minister Greg Hunt, whose Flinders electorate covers the peninsula, said the funding round was delayed after “consultations with key stakeholders” to allow them to “focus on preparations for addressing the COVID-19 pandemic”. Ms Taylor said she was “not sure who the key stakeholders are that Hunt’s office has spoken to, however, as the only Aboriginal community-controlled health service offer-

ing primary and mental health service across Frankston and the peninsula catchment I can assure you we were not consulted”. Ms Taylor said the annual $778,819 that Mr Hunt said would be maintained “has been the same amount for 10 years”. “Our service massively expanded 18 months ago, from chronic disease co-ordination and transportation to delivering complex primary health services to address the significant unmet health needs of the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander communities across

greater Melbourne,” she said. “This is what the community asked for. This is an example of self-determination at a local level. However, the government appears to determine health need, not the community.” “Let’s be really clear, the existing funding that Mr Hunt is referring to covers around one third of our organisation’s total expenditure for the Thomastown clinic alone, and he is aware of this. “He is also well aware the Frankston clinic remains completely unfunded.” Ms Taylor said the Medicare benefits

schedule - which Mr Hunt said was available to First Peoples' Health and Wellbeing - was not “designed to fully support Aboriginal health services”. “MBS suits five-minute medicine which is demonstrated by super clinics on every second corner offering care than will never see our nation close the gap in Aboriginal health,” she said. “Mr Hunt uses the term ‘as per usual practice’. We are in the middle of a pandemic and this is anything but usual. “We have completely transformed our entire model of care to rapidly respond to COVID-19.

“As the only Aboriginal testing site in Victoria we still remain unfunded.” Dr Peter Walsh said staff working for First Peoples' Health and Wellbeing in Frankston were using tele health “simply because of staffing and funding shortages - while at Thomastown we are able to offer a swab clinic, flu vax clinic and face to face consultations if absolutely necessary”. “Due to overwhelming demand we are now running outreach clinics at Hastings and in Frankston. We have been inundated with new patients. “As you can imagine, the logistics of this are enormous and prior to COVID-19 we were already stretched beyond capacity. The team running the Hastings clinic will consist entirely of our executive team – simply because we don’t have any other staff. “The majority of the people who attended [the car park clinics] were new patients to us, making the logistics of sign-up and coordination a huge task. “This, combined with our rapid tradition to tele-health at the start of the pandemic and as the only Aboriginal controlled health service in Victoria testing for COVID19, we have been utterly swamped with new patients and requests for outreach clinics by community.” Dr Walsh accused Mr Hunt of having “walked away from the health of the Aboriginal people in his own community during their time of greatest need”. “There is so much money going into funding the pandemic response, I can’t understand why he wouldn’t’t want to fund this great work happening in his own electorate.”

ATTENTION BUSINESS OWNERS JOBKEEPER - ACTION REQUIRED BEFORE FRIDAY if you want to claim for April Small Businesses are reminded Action required before FRIDAY 26 April

employees or deliberately misuses the payment may incur penalties of up to $126,000.

To receive JobKeeper payments for April, eligible employees will need to have received at least $3,000 on or before end of April ($1,500 for 30 March– 12 April 2020, and $1,500 for the fortnight 13 April 26 April 2020)

As the ATO will pay employers the JobKeeper payment monthly in arrears, it is essential that you ensure your employees continually meet the eligibility criteria.

If your income has dropped because of COVID-19 you should review whether you satisfy the eligibility criteria and the turnover test. There are two decline in turnover tests you can use: n the basic test, and n the alternative test

The basic decline in turnover test

To access the April 2020 JobKeeper payments, the basic decline in turnover test requires you to compare any of the following to calculate your fall in turnover: n GST turnover for March 2020 with GST turnover for March 2019; n Projected GST turnover for April 2020 with GST turnover for April 2019; or n Projected GST turnover for the quarter starting April 2020 with GST turnover for the quarter starting April 2019.

When might you need help from your bookkeeper or accountant?

With your projections, make sure you have sufficient evidence on file to support your projections, and if you don’t satisfy the basic test you may need to seek guidance on the alternative test to ensure you have got it right.

What do you need to do (ASAP!)?

Employers must: n Elect to participate in the JobKeeper scheme before the end of the JobKeeper fortnight; and n For April 2020, the employer will need to register by 26 April 2020 unless the ATO accepts a later date. n Complete and hold on file the JobKeeper employee nomination for eligible employees – completed by both employees and employers; and n Notify the ATO of an eligible employee’s: Name; Type of employment; Residency status; and, notify employees that they are nominated employee within 7 days of notifying the ATO. An employer who claims the JobKeeper payment and fails to pay the minimum $1,500 to

The payment is intended to reimburse the employer for amounts that have already been paid to employees.

Sole trader - business owner?

And what about those sole traders and business owners who don’t technically ‘take a wage’ from the business? You are eligible for the JobKeeper too provided you satisfy the 30% reduction in income, and the other criteria, so be sure to review your situation and register. Check out the ebook on the CfMP website which covers all the COVID-19 Federal and State assistance.

How to do it - DIY

During the week the Committee for Mornington Peninsula hosted a webinar explaining the $1500 JobKeeper Subsidy with downloadable workpapers to assist you with going through the process. Registration for the JobKeeper with the ATO is possible from Monday, April 20th, and to receive the April payment, MUST be completed and processed by April 26th! Otherwise, you will not be eligible for April, and will have to wait for May. www.committeeformp.com.au/news/1500jobkeeper-payment-what-you-need-to-knowand-how-to-get-it/

Prayers are in the mail

Policing in the virus emergency

Keith Platt keith@mpnews.com.au LIFE in the time of COVID-19 is, for many, a time of prayer. But congregating in a church during the coronavirus pandemic is not possible because of government social distancing rules St Marks Anglican Church, Dromana has had to abandon its regular services because of the dangers of transmitting COVID-19, but the offer to the public for its members to say prayers on request has not been withdrawn. The Rev Paul Woodcock said prayer requests usually “trickle in” at a rate of three or four a month. The requests are left in a small steel letterbox - the prayer box - behind the church’s fence in Odonohue Street, just off Point Nepean Road. A sign on the fence offers prayers for “genuine” requests. Mr Woodcock said there had been no noticeable increase in prayer requests since the COVID-19 emergency was declared, although this could be attributed to people staying at home. He said prayers were requested for a variety of reasons, often involving family or relationship problems, children or illness.

Mail order prayers: The Rev John Woodcock and the mailbox for prayer requests at St Marks Anglican Church, Dromana. Picture: Gary Sissons

“Sometimes there’s a request for a prayer for a particular person without any particular issue being mentioned,” Mr Woodcock said. Notes were sometimes left saying that a particular situation “has sorted itself out”, a result that was attributed to prayer and other reasons. Mr Woodcock did not know of the church ever receiving prayer requests for frivolous reasons, although an item of origami had been placed in the box the previous week. “Sometimes the requests are on really weird scraps of paper but there has never been anything rude or abusive,” he said. St Marks normally holds two Sun-

day services (holy communion and family worship wth a children’s ministry and a combined worship every fifth Sunday) and holy communion on Wednesdays. Dedicated on 7 Aril 1893, St Marks is unlikely to have ever witnessed such a disruption to its public services. However, the Rev Woodcock is making sure that parishioners have an opportunity to pray by making pre-recorded services available on YouTube or distributing printed copies to parishioners. “We have organised for people to stay in touch with one another. We are caring for each other.”

Continued from Page 1 “Policing is a dynamic activity and, at times, there is simply no warning or enough time to put masks and gloves on,” Senior Sergeant Edwards said. For the sake of safety and giving due regard to the seriousness of the virus, police patrolled in pairs. “During this period more than two members in a vehicle at one time is deemed a health risk.” Senior Sergeant Natalie Dollard, of Rosebud police, said the reduced counter service at Hastings, Rosebud and Mornington police stations allowed more officers to be deployed “on the frontline and proactively patrol out in the community”. “We will continue to have people working around the clock and resources will be deployed to incidents as needed.” To speak to an officer at these police stations call Hastings 5970 7800, Rosebud 5986 0444 or Mornington 5970 4900. Those reporting on bail may use the intercom. The reception counter at Frankston police station is open.

Community in need PEOPLE suddenly finding themselves without jobs and income due to the coronavirus pandemic are turning to Mornington Peninsula Community Information and Support for help. “We are getting calls from people who have suddenly lost their jobs and have no money. They are a bit stunned. Some may have jobs to go back to, but they are not sure if they will be getting payments in the meantime,” manager Stuart Davis-Meehan said. The centre has changed from a face-

to-face service to over the phone to conform to social distancing and stayat-home rules. Assistance includes support and a “listening ear”, information about what local help is available, and material help with things like food, prescriptions, phone cards, and some limited financial assistance. The centre has also identified vulnerable people who they have helped in the past and arranged to deliver food parcels to them. Anyone experiencing difficult times should call 5975 1644 to discuss how they can get help. Opening hours are 10am-4pm, Monday to Friday.

Art show cancelled THE 53rd Flinders Art Show in June has been cancelled due to COVID-19 social distancing restrictions. This is the first time the event has missed its Queen’s Birthday showing since its inception in 1967. The event gives artists the opportunity to market their work. Last year 350 works were exhibited. “In keeping with the current regulations, and after careful consideration of COVID-19 by the committee, and the uncertainty surrounding future months, this very popular community event has been cancelled,” Flinders Art Show vice-president Barbara Higgins said. Proceeds usually go to the CFA, Flinders Cricket Club, Flinders PreSchool, Southern Peninsula Community Support and Information Centre, Southern Peninsula Food For All, Western Port Community Support as well as others listed on flindersartshow.com.au Organisers are looking forward to a bigger and better show in June 2021.

Restaurant patrons Tip is open to all help feed the needy Stephen Taylor steve@mpnews.com.au

A CHANCE conversation has led to a meals program being cooked up for needy clients of Mornington Community Information and Support Centre. It began when Mt Martha restaurant Volpino owner David Weill was speaking with a customer about his struggles in keeping the restaurant open during the stage three COVID-19 restrictions. Without ceremony, the generous customer donated $1000 to help keep staff employed. This led to a charity, the Mornington Peninsula Foundation, putting the restaurant in touch with support centre manager Stuart Davis-Meehan and Mornington Peninsula Shire. The restaurant’s staff now prepare, pack and label freshly cooked meals which shire staff take to the support centre. Volunteers then deliver the meals to clients confined to their homes during COVID-19. “The meals are terrific – a welcome addition to the centre’s weekly food parcels,” support centre manager Stuart Davis-Meehan said. “It’s a classic ground-up response from the community, which is asking itself ‘What can we do to help?’” Mr Weill said he and his staff had been touched by the community response: “These local acts of kindness and generosity are warming our hearts.” A further $2000 has been donated helping keep Volpino’s staff employed and needy residents fed for a while longer.

POLICE have given assurances they will take no action against residents legitimately dumping rubbish at Mornington Peninsula Shire’s transfer station in Watt Road after identifying it an “essential service”. Some prospective tippers last week said they were concerned police were waiting to nab them – even though the transfer station appeared to be doing business as usual. A call to the shire’s head office received the same warning: They had heard reports that some domestic tippers had received on-the-spot fines of $1600 as it was “not one of the four legitimate reasons for being out”. The shire says transfer stations will remain open as waste disposal is considered an essential service. Infrastructure services manager Jessica Wingad said residents could only use the transfer stations if the visit was essential and in line with the level 3 coronavirus rules set by the state government (“Non-essential tip use under fire” The News 5/4/20). John Renowden, of Mount Martha, said he had been told of the fines and that only commercial tippers – not residents clearing up green waste – were allowed there. “That wouldn’t be fair,” he said. “We are locked up at home and it’s good to get out in the garden and clear up our green waste and take it to the tip. “We are no danger to anyone else, we keep our distance, and we can dump our load and be gone in 10 minutes. “It’s the tip’s responsibility to keep their workers safe with screens, masks, gloves and sanitisers.” Mr Renowden said that if commercial gardeners were allowed at the tip “then we should be, too”.

Mornington transfer station was advertised as being open for business and set to close at 4pm last week. No signs stated it was for commercial tippers only. Senior Sergeant Paul Edwards, of Mornington Police, said the tip was not off-limits to residents. “It’s open to the public and we won’t be booking them,” he said. He said people should be asking if they really needed to be getting rid of their rubbish now.

Butcher’s sandwich offer: MT MARTHA butcher Gavin Fitzpatrick is keeping his customers in a positive frame of mind with uplifting quotes on the sandwich board outside his shop. They’re a nice way to lift community spirit.

An important message from the Victorian Government

STAGE 3 RESTRICTIONS ARE NOW IN PLACE. That means there are only four reasons to be out.

Shopping for food and supplies that you need.

Exercise.

Medical care and caregiving.

Work and education – if necessary.

With Stephen Taylor

Arrests after ‘invasion’ THREE men have been charged following an alleged home invasion in Moorhead Avenue, Mornington, 3am, Friday 10 April. Detective Acting Senior Sergeant Steve Reidy, of Somerville CIU, said the residents were awoken and confronted by the offenders, one of whom was allegedly armed with a firearm. The house was ransacked before the offenders fled in a car which was later found crashed and abandoned at Merricks North. Police searching the area arrested and charged a Rosebud man, 18, and a Safety Beach man, 24, with aggravated burglary. Both were remanded to appear at Melbourne Magistrates’ Court at a later date. A Rosebud teen, 17, was charged with aggravated burglary and remanded to appear at a children’s court at a later date and a Mornington man, 20, was charged with drug trafficking and remanded to appear at Frankston Magistrates’ Court at a later date. Detective Reidy said the men were “known to each other”.

Quiet Easter ALTHOUGH police had anticipated a “busy time” the Easter holiday period had been uneventful with most holidaymakers well behaved, Detective Senior Sergeant Steve Wood, of Somerville CIU, said. This did not include those attending a Rye house party, Friday 10 April, in which 11 young people were issued $1600 penalty notices for flouting social distancing rules. “Most of those driving down to the Mornington Peninsula were legitimately staying in their own holiday houses and there were few day trippers,” he said.

Sticky end for driver A MORNINGTON man said he was just trying to get to Western Australia to see his sister who was sick with coronavirus when picked up by members of Somerville Highway Patrol over Easter. The 63-year-old’s white Daewoo Lanos had some “slight safety issues” police said, pointing to the replacement door

made of board held on by sticky tape, 10.30am, Monday 13 April. The man was issued with a defect notice and his vehicle grounded. The incident was part of state-wide road policing Operation Nexus which ran Thursday 9-Monday 13 April.

One without the lot A BITTERN man charged with armed robbery for allegedly robbing a Bittern pizza shop has been remanded to appear at Melbourne Magistrates’ Court at a later date. The 19-year-old is alleged to have used a hammer to threaten staff and steal $20, 9.20pm, Wednesday 8 April.

Peninsula Link pursuit SIX young people were arrested early Thursday 16 April after police spotted a Holden Captiva with false number plates on Nepean Highway, Mount Martha, about 1.20am. The car was being driven “erratically” and police continued to monitor it until a chase began on Peninsula Link. The six occupants were arrested after police brought the car to a halt using stop sticks on the freeway near Derril Road, Moorooduc. Two 16-year-old Narre Warren boys, a 15-year-old boy of no fixed address and a 14-year-old Doveton boy were all charged with theft of a motor vehicle, conduct endangering life and driving offences. They will appear at a children’s court at a later date. A 16-year-old girl, of no fixed address, and a 14-year-old Berwick girl, are expected to be charged on summons. As well as the criminal charges, the six were also found to be in breach of social distancing rules and issued penalty notices.

Jesse Leeworthy and Jonathon Byrt have adapted their memobottle water container to be used for sanitiser. Pictures: Supplied

Business adapting to emergency AGILITY and the ability to pivot have become buzzwords to describe the ability of businesses to adapt to the emergency created by the COVID-19 pandemic. The commercial reality is that most commercial enterprises are being forced to close their doors and face major profit losses. However, some businesses have been able to pivot by changing product seeking new ways of distributing their existing product. Jesse Leeworthy and his business partner Jonathon Byrt have been able to swing their trademark business of making plastic water bottles to home deliver bottles of hand sanitiser. The pair entered the commercial world some years ago with the memo bottle, a slim plastic water bottle that

could easily fit into a satchel alongside a computer. The former Mornington Peninsulabased residents designed the reusable bottles after seeing plastic bottles strewn across peninsula beaches. Memobottles were added to gift bags handed out to nominees at the 2016 Oscars in Hollywood (“Take note, a bottle makes debut at Oscars” The News 23/2/16). “It’s a challenge all over the world right now - brands trying or being forced to pivot and adapt to stay relevant and afloat during this time of uncertainty,” Leeworthy said, naming luxury goods manufacturer LVMH and car maker Tesla as examples of companies that “reinvented” production lines. He said Melbourne-based memobot-

tle was “repositioning … to deliver a campaign and product offering that strikes the balance of much-needed humour with a practical solution”. Leeworthy said the slim, rectangular bottle held 375ml of sanitiser that could be decanted into smaller spray bottles and dispensers “or used straight from the memobottle”. The compostable packaging was made from rice, potatoes and corn derivatives blended with a copolymer. The sanitiser was made at a factory in Braeside. Once the sanitiser was user the bottle could be cleaned and used as a day-to-day drink bottle. Leeworthy said memobottle would soon try to raise money towards making “a filter which kills viruses and bacteria”. Keith Platt

Brewers call on community to drink up Stephen Taylor steve@mpnews.com.au INDEPENDENT breweries on the Mornington Peninsula are under pressure as their taprooms, bars and community areas are closed due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Over the past decade, independent breweries have become part of the peninsula’s economy, adding to the its reputation as a hub for innovation and culinary excellence creating places for social connection. They are likely to be important assets as communities struggle to get back on their feet following COVID-19. The Independent Brewers Association is calling for people to buy locally made beer to support these businesses in their time of need. David and Karen Golding, who established Red Hill Brewery in Shoreham Road, Red Hill South, in 2005 are selling beer online and offering a take-away service to try and keep their team in business. “We’re not confident we are going to see this through,” Ms Golding said. “Initially, we advised our workforce to visit Centrelink, but we’re hoping the recent JobKeeper arrangements will enable them to stay on and help us to stay in business in some way. “We don’t want a governmentbacked loan to build more debt. It’s already hard enough in small business and we’re shattered to see all our customers’ businesses going through the same. I cannot imagine what the other side is going to look like.

“But we can only take it day by day, week by week; it’s all happened so fast we can only wait and see what’s coming this week.” Richard Jeffares, of Two Bays Brewing Co, in Trewhitt Court, Dromana, is more hopeful as bottle shops can stay open. “We only make gluten-free beers so we have a bit of a niche following with small and major retailers, and online sales have always been a part of our model,” he said. “At any time we could be sending beer to Darwin, Port Headland or Broken Hill.” Mr Jeffares said sales were down by up to 50 per cent. “We are doing our best to keep people engaged online to drive sales through our website.”

Independent Brewers Association chairman Peter Philip said more than 650 independent breweries employed about 3000 people and support a further 25,000 in the wider economy in agriculture, logistics, manufacturing, tourism and related services. “I’ve done forecasts of the best and worst-case scenarios and even the best case is pretty devastating for the industry,” Mr Philip said. “The government assistance package announced so far is helpful, but we’re still to understand how brewers can recover with little to no revenue over an extended period.

On show: A Collection of Stranger Things exhibition can be viewed online at mprg. mornpen.vic.gov.au

Art lovers invited online

LIKE galleries and museums across the country, Mornington Peninsula Regional Gallery is closed in response to the COVID-19 pandemic. However, content from its exhibitions can be viewed online, including a free publication of A Collection of Stranger Things. In this showing artist and collector Patrick Pound drew out works from the MPRG collection and displayed them alongside his own collection of photographs and objects. In a podcast, Pound explains his collection methodology and how the collection became the medium. An online publication of With a Little Help from our Friends showcases works acquired by the Friends of MPRG since 1996. Money raised through memberships and friends events have gone towards buying works on paper by artists Gareth Sansom, Fiona McMonagle, Catherine Cassidy and Raymond Arnold for the MPRG Collection. Peninsula artist Sophie Perez’s exhibition The landscape In Between will be supplemented with a podcast and in-studio demonstration video

this month. The deadline for submissions to the 2020 National Works on Paper has been extended until 19 July. Leading artists display works in drawing, printmaking, digital prints and paper sculpture. Prizes total $50,000 in acquisitions and awards (including the major acquisitive award of $15,000). When the gallery reopens to the public it will be launching MPRG: Fifty, a major exhibition and publication that highlights the development and growth of its collection. This year is the 50th anniversary of the first work acquired for MPRG’s collection by founding director Alan McCulloch. Over that time the collection has grown to include more than 1800 objects, including paintings, drawings, prints and sculptures. A focus is the cultural heritage of the peninsula, which has been a haven and source of inspiration for artists, including Fred Williams, Albert Tucker and Arthur Boyd, since the 1850s.

A FREE online service has been launched to help individuals, businesses and community organisations to easily identify and access government funding, as well as philanthropic grant programs. Mornington Peninsula Shire’s Funding Finder website includes a page dedicated to gathering the many COVID-19 funding opportunities into one place. This one-stop-shop approach aims to save time and effort on research. Users can create favourites lists, receive direct email alerts from their areas of interest and keep abreast of all funding opportunities and deadlines. The website also offers advice and tips for finding and applying for grants to maximise the chances of success. It allows users to filter their search to a specific location, industry or type of project. “Now more than ever it’s important that individuals, businesses and organisations know what financial support is available to them and how to apply for it,” the mayor Cr Sam Hearn said. “The Funding Finder is a great support tool. It will go a long way to taking time and stress out of searching for community and business funding. “I encourage anyone in our community looking for financial support for a project or business to use this tool to help them in their search.” He said the free service was suited to local businesses, not-for-profits, community groups, sporting organisations and individuals.

Coming clean: Chief’s Son Distillery employees Stacey Penny and Martyn Ashton have helped make the switch from whisky to hand sanitiser. Picture: Supplied

Distiller cleans up with new line IT’S like a career change, or a sea change for staff at Chief’s Son Distillery, Somerville. While they usually produce single malt whisky, a shortage of hand sanitiser has opened a new product line that is benefiting the business and the community. “We significantly retooled so that we could help the local community in the battle against COVID-19 and continue to employ our staff,” the distillery’s Naomi McIntosh said. “Our primary aim is to provide medical grade hand sanitiser to front line medical and emergency services workers, to the vulnerable in the community, to businesses so that they can keep their workers safe and remain open, and to households on the Morn-

ington Peninsula. “We have supplied sanitiser to the Somerville Basket Initiative from which all profits of the first 20 baskets will be going to the nurses at Frankston Hospital.” Ms McIntosh said mainstream producers of hand sanitiser would soon be able to supply supermarkets on the peninsula in a “top-down approach”. “We have been able to supply hand sanitiser from the bottom up meaning we are able to quickly and effectively support the local community and local business,” she said. “We have been able to ensure that medical grade sanitiser is available in the community, and able to keep our staff on during these uncertain times.” Stephen Taylor

Quarantine station, where life was lived apart Stephen Taylor steve@mpnews.com.au THE Quarantine Station at Point Nepean played a vital role in keeping early Victorians well away from those carrying disease, with a period of intense activity to shield the colony from the Spanish Flu in 1919. Twelve timber “influenza huts” were built to quarantine overseas arrivals in what remains – even during the scourge of COVID-19 – the world’s most deadly pandemic. Topical as that scenario is today, there are no current plans to use it as an isolation station. A visit to the Quarantine Station (when it reopens) will once again offer those interested in history an opportunity to see how new arrivals spent their first few weeks in their new country. This community of hospitals, disinfecting complex, morgue, cemetery and other defunct buildings which opened in 1852 arose from the remains of a few houses left by lime burners who had vacated the area. The buildings formed an infectious disease centre which processed people and, later, livestock. Far from nearby Portsea being the playground for the wealthy that it is today, the chosen site was a desolate, windy and unwelcoming stretch of land close to the entrance to Port Phillip. The first buildings at Point Nepean were simple wooden structures. In the late 1850s a jetty and five two-storey hospital blocks were erected. In the 1860s a communal bathhouse was added, along with a washhouse to clean infected clothing. A second building phase occurred in the late 19th century when the Quarantine Station began receiving animals as well as people. A jetty was built at Observatory Point to bring DECKING T/Pine 70x22 KD ACQ ........................... $2.70mt T/Pine 90x22 KD ACQ ........................... $3.50mt T/Pine 140x22 KD ACQ ......................... $6.25mt Merbau 70x19 Random ........................ $4.75mt Merbau 90x19 Random ........................ $6.50mt Merbau 140x22 Random .................... $13.95mt

them ashore from ships. A school for residents’ children was built as well as a crematorium to burn the bodies of leprosy patients who were housed well away from the main Quarantine Station. In 1901, with the proclamation of the Federation of Australia, quarantine came under Commonwealth control. New processing measures were devised, including the “foul luggage” receiving store, disinfection and boiler buildings, which became standard features of quarantine stations Australia-wide. The large administration building erected in 1916 had a handsome façade and made an impressive addition to the station. The Army was billeted during World War II, and the station became the officer cadet school between 1952 and 1985. A barracks, library and gymnasium were built in the 1960s. The Quarantine Station was used by the School of Army Health from 1985 to 1998. But it as not always not always been about disease o defence. The Quarantine Station was used to house 400 Kosovar refugees from the Bosnian War, 1992-95. By the time it was considered safe for them to return home in June 1999, the Kosovars had enjoyed Australian hospitality, such as bilingual support, school and a weekly allowance. Families were taken to museums, zoos, festivals and special events. In 2009 the Quarantine Station became part of the Point Nepean National Park. It is popular with visitors, providing a glimpse into what it was like to arrive in a country wary of any diseases you might be carrying. With the closure of the state’s national parks and government rules on social distancing, the Quarantine Station and its artistin-residence program at Police Point have been declared off-limits until further notice. Quite the opposite to the Quarantine Station’s earlier role.

The rear deck is shaded by a mighty Moonah tree and overlooks the flat, wellgrassed backyard with fire pit, and in the two back corners of the block are handy sheds; the larger of which makes for a great man-cave with wood heater and storage cupboards or a garage. Built to embrace the warmer weather with glee courtesy of several lovely decks that increase the overall sense of living space, this charming home is on a surprisingly spacious 780 square metre block adorned with established landscaped gardens and a secure driveway providing off-street parking for up to six vehicles.n

LETTERS Disrespect disappointing It was most disappointing to read the disrespectful disparagement of David Lines and Mornington Peninsula Shire Council in a letter supporting the Peninsula Aero Club (“Planning minister should take over airfield planning” The News 14/4/20). The letter disregarded the aero club president’s repeated calls for courtesy and restraint among the club’s members and supporters. As the president stated in this paper: “We can always disagree, but we should always be respectful” David Chalke, Tyabb

Break from reality Caring for our community, or a farewell to common sense? I’ve managed most days to walk 863 steps (0.43 of one kilometre), take a threeminute rest and then walk another 863 steps to my home. It is a psychological break to enforced isolation. Alas, some bright spark in our Mornington Peninsula Council has had a brainwave. Resting is not allowed. Previously just me, alone. No more. Why? Cliff Ellen, Rye

Looking back Good grief, poor Marge D’Arcy has again copped a flogging from the born to rule mob (“MPs doing their best” Letters 15/4/20). As usual, we got waffle, abuse and inaccuracies. We could have been in lockdown a couple of days earlier but [Prime Minister Scott] Morrison decided to start it on the Monday, which meant the weekend was clear for his Hillsong mob to hold its convention and he was able to see his beloved Sharks play. And while he was telling all the kids they had to attend school, his brood was safe and sound at home witth private tutors. Both Victorian and NSW premiers have been getting pats on the back because of their decisiveness, while Scomo has been getting a belt around the ears for his blunders. Who can ever forget his pathetic performance during the fire disasters. By the way, where’s [Home Affairs Minister

Letters - 300 words maximum and including full name, address and contact number - can be sent to The News, PO Box 588, Hastings 3915 or emailed to: team@mpnews.com.au Peter] Dutton? Probably letting more passengers off the Ruby Princess. Much better to allow people infected with the virus on to Australian soil than refugees. Michael O’Brien, the then treasurer in the Napthine state government, and now the leader of the state opposition, did a secret watertight deal with the construction companies on the eve of the election that ensured Victorian taxpayers were going to be hit with a billion dollar debt that [Premier] Dan Andrews could not get out of. The only thing the born to rules can criticise [former prime minister Kevin] Rudd for is the pink batts during the GFC. They seem to forget the building of school halls as part of the stimulus package made Australia the envy of the world. Then treasurer Wayne Swan was recognised as the best treasurer in the world and the IMF awarded him a medal in recognition af that achievement. John Cain, McCrae

Pause for Anzac Right now we are facing the most significant challenge and threat to our way of life since the World War II. The coronavirus pandemic has changed the way we live, and it will change how we observe one of our nation’s most sacred days this year — Anzac Day. There will be no marches, no parades and no gunfire breakfasts or games of two-up at your local RSL, but Anzac Day has not been cancelled and we will continue to pause this year to honour our servicemen and women. Australians are at their best when we come together to support one another and while we cannot physically gather to commemorate the service and sacrifice of our defence personnel, we can show them our respect. Whether it’s a solitary driveway tribute, baking Anzac biscuits, a small ceremony with your household, sharing a message for our service personnel, or watching the televised service from the Australian War Memorial on the morning of 25 April, I encourage everyone to pause, reflect and say a simple “thank you for your service”. Teach your children about the importance of the day and

MORNINGTON psychologist Louise Edgoose continues to find inspiration for her “quirky humour” in the COVID-19 emergency.

the service of the original Anzacs as well as the service of the almost two million Australians who have served over more than a century. Think of those who are currently serving, both in Australia and abroad. And reflect on the more than 102,000 who have died in wars, conflicts and peacekeeping operations whose names are inscribed on the walls of the Australian War Memorial. Anzac Day is now more important than ever and we will remember them. Lest we forget. Darren Chester, Minister for Veterans’ Affairs and Defence Personnel

Kangaroos contaminated Prime Minister Scott Morrison has criticised the World Health Organisation for supporting the reopening of China’s wet markets, one of which is widely considered to have been the source of the COVID-19 pandemic. It’s not just China that permits these vile places to exist: PETA Asia has just released footage of wet markets in Indonesia and Thailand showing blood and rotting flesh covering the floors and countertops, dogs lying dead with flies buzzing around them, and chickens and cats awaiting slaughter in cramped cages. Mr Morrison is right to criticise these filthy torture galleries as potential breeding grounds

for the next pandemic virus. The US centre for disease control has stated that 75 per cent of new or emerging infectious diseases in people come from other animals. But the PM is wrong to think that Australian industries do not pose a similar risk. Millions of kangaroos are shot every year for their flesh or skins. Many, including mothers carrying joeys in their pouches, are wounded but escape, only to suffer and die slowly. Incapacitated adults and orphaned joeys are decapitated or have their heads smashed in. Others are left in the field to die of starvation, predation, or exposure. Kangaroos are often butchered in the field and transported on unrefrigerated open trucks. An investigation found that many of the carcases stored by the kangaroo-meat industry were contaminated by dangerous bacteria. Russia has banned kangaroo-meat imports several times because of pathogenic contamination. A study by Belgian spatial epidemiologist Marius Gilbert found that Australia had generated more instances of historical “conversion events” (when a non-toxic avian flu strain suddenly becomes dangerous to humans) than China. It is becoming ever clearer that the exploitation of animals, anywhere, invites human disease. Desmond Bellamy, PETA Australia

100 YEARS AGO THIS WEEK...

Car wrecked in Mile Bridge accident Compiled by Cameron McCullough THE Peninsula Motor Garage Frankston, was the centre of attraction last Saturday afternoon, the object of interest being a wrecked motor car which bore the appearance of having experienced a hot time on the battlefields of France. It turned out that the car had met with misfortune near the Mile Bridge. It was one of the fleet of motors supplied by the Volunteer Motor Corps, conveying invalid soldiers and nurses to Somerville. When approaching a spot near the Mile Bridge Mr McFarlane, the driver, appears to have lost control, and the car left the road and tore through the ti-tree. When the Messrs Olsen, of the Peninsula Motor Garage, who had been phoned for, arrived on the scene, they found the car half way up a tree, with another tree, 2ft. in girth, lying across it. After much chopping and lifting, the wrecked car was released and returned once more to the highway. The motor experts succeeded in setting the engine going, and the car was taken to the garage. It is difficult to understand how the party of nurses who were in the car, escaped injury. Mr McFarlane was also unhurt. *** FOOTBALLERS’ working “bee” at the Frankston park tomorrow afternoon. *** AT Hastings, tomorrow afternoon the State school Honor Board will be unveiled.

*** BRISK booking of reserved chairs for Anzac night concert is reported. Box plan is on view at Messrs Brody and Mason’s. *** TODAY, the Victorian Railway Commissioners, accompanied by the interstate Commissioners, visited Frankston, and later in the afternoon proceeded to Mornington. *** MR T. Salmon, merchant, of Tongala, during the Easter holidays purchased no fewer than five building allotments in Frankston. *** ST. Paul’s Church of England, Frankston, was crowded to overflowing on Easter Sunday. *** THE local motor garages and cab proprietors had an exceptionally busy time during the Easter holidays. *** IT was stated officially this week that military camps in other States, for the treatment of venereal disease, had been closed, and that patients from other portions of the Commonwealth were being treated at Langwarrin. *** MESSRS Ekins and Wright (late A.I.F.) announces in our advertising columns that they have taken over the motor garage at the Pier Hotel, Frankston. They have motors for hire day or night and repairs entrusted to them will receive prompt attention. *** THE Frankston Brass Band on Friday evening last held its initial concert

and dance in the Mechanics’ Hall, and the success attending it augurs well for the success of the remainder of the series of similar entertainments, which will be promoted during the coming winter in aid of the band funds. Dancing formed the chief attraction, and the excellent music, provided by the band, under the baton of Bandmaster Blaskett, was greatly appreciated. Selections by the Frankston Orchestra, and items by little Miss Logan were greatly appreciated. The next dance is advertised to take place on Tuesday evening next, April 20th. *** FRANKSTON Grammar School will reopen on Monday next, at 9.15. in the same rooms. Mr Austin will resume charge. New arrangements as to fees and times of payments have been made and it is believed now that the school is a well founded and firm institution. *** LOCAL sportsmen will be interested in the announcement that the Cranbourne Turf Club intend holding one of its popular meetings on Thursday, 29th April. The entries close on Monday, 19th inst., with the joint secretaries, Messrs W. Maher and J. Taylor, at Cranbourne, or Mr Considine V.R.C. offices. The programme appears in our advertising columns. *** MR and Mrs A. S. Woolcott are spending the Easter vacation at their

seaside home, which they recently purchased from Dr Jeffreys Wood. It adjoins the residence of the late Sir John Madden at Frankston, and has been named “Minda,” after the owners’ villa at St. Kilda. *** MR and Mrs R. T. Picking and family have returned to their Frankston residence and will permanently reside in Frankston in the future. *** MR. Pat Coleman, the noted base singer, visited Frankston during the holidays. *** MR Wm. Kemp, who, for many years past, has been one of Frankston’s respected residents, and a citizen who has done much for the improvements of Frankston, left the district last week to take up his residence in Murrumbeena, having sold his Frankston residence. *** MR L. J. Ward has resumed duty at the Frankston Railway Station, after several weeks absence on sick leave. *** DR Stanislaus E. A. Zichy-Woinarski, who died at Mansfield on Monday, was a member of the well-known family of that name and a brother of Judge Woinarski, and Dr Woinarski of Mornington. For many years he was in practise at Ballarat, and on leaving there practised for a time in Collins Street and at Mornington. Recently he visited Ocean Island, and on his return went to Mansfield, where he had been for about two months.

He had been ailing for some time. Sixty-three years of age, he leaves a widow. a son, and four daughters. *** The recent death of Mrs. Louisa Evelyn Liardet, at Dundas place, Albert Park, at the age of 68, removes one of the earliest pioneers of this State. She was born in Dublin, arrived in Victoria in infancy, and lived with her parents on the site now occupied by the Rialto buildings, Collins Street. Later she married the late Mr. Frederick Evelyn Liardet, of Liardet’s Beach, afterwards known as Sandridge and now Port Melbourne. The first three hotels, the Pier, the Royal, and the Chusan, were built by the Liardet family. The Stevedores’ Club now occupies the site of the last mentioned. The bricks were made on the then family estate, “Ballam Park,” Frankston, and cost £5 each. Mrs. Liardet leaves five sons and two daughters, who are the claimants of the Deptford dockyard estate, England, which was let by their great grandfather to the British Government on a “peppercorn lease.” Just before the outbreak of war the estate was thrown into Chancery, and valued at £2,000,000. It came into the family through an ancestor, Lady Perpet, Countess de Lamonon De-albe, of the French Court, who settled in England after the French Revolution, and was afterwards lady-in-waiting to Queen Victoria. *** FROM the pages of the Mornington Standard, 16 April 1920

Pines set for Monterey boost SOCCER

By Craig MacKenzie FRANKSTON council looks certain to approve a $1.43 million makeover of Monterey Reserve in next financial year’s budget. This was one of the major capital works projects announced last week in a proposed annual budget posted on the council’s website and inviting community feedback. It’s no secret that Monterey Reserve tenant Frankston Pines and council had been at loggerheads for some time over long-standing plans for a major makeover with the club strongly opposed to important aspects of the project. For reasons the club could never understand the original plans had public toilets at the entrance to the new facility, a greatly reduced interior and no player race. “The loss of space was a major issue for us,” club president Lee Davies said. “Apart from the public toilet placement and the removal of the player race there was no entry point which could be policed on matchdays. “The suitability of the facility to service the whole community not just Frankston Pines was important to us. “We believed the club should be used more whether for school football, all abilities, darts and other groups which local residents are involved in but the design didn’t provide this option.” Meetings were held between club and council but Pines’ attempts to alter the plans proved fruitless. So the club elicited the help of north-west ward councillor Glenn Aitken who arranged a meeting late last year between Davies, Pines food and beverage manager Pat Duffy and relevant council staff. “Glenn took charge of the meeting and basically the council said they would address our issues,” Davies added. “They agreed that the new building wasn’t fit for purpose so they’d look at changes and a redesign. “I spoke to council the other day and they said they were going ahead with what Glenn asked them to do and what we wanted. “Everyone is aware that when the council addresses our concerns it may push the project back a little bit but

there’s no specific timeframe as yet. “The council was very positive about the whole thing in fact they’ve been great.” Davies also said that council had been supportive when queried about rent relief given the impact of the corona virus pandemic. “They’ve been very helpful and noone is chasing us for money,” he said. “We seem to be getting on great with them for the first time in a long time. “We deal with Fiona (Dalla-Rossa) and James (Madder) and they’ve been brilliant ever since we started to work together.” The issue of rent relief has been of concern to all the local clubs and although council is yet to decide on a relief package the topic is definitely on its agenda. Frankston mayor Sandra Mayer acknowledged that rent relief wasn’t specifically mentioned in last week’s proposed annual budget but assured clubs that they wouldn’t be left without assistance. “That level of detail is not in there as we are still working through the relief package and it has not yet come to a council meeting for official endorsement. It is in the package though,” councillor Mayer said.

It’s understood that some clubs have been told that their tenancy will be charged on a pro rata basis and if the venue remains unused then no fees will be charged. Skye United is one such club. “I’ve got it in writing that if our season starts and it’s for only three months say then we’ll only pay three months of the normal six-month winter tenancy,” Skye United vice-president Stuart Lawrence said. “We’re quite happy with that because we weren’t sure if we’d get anything.” Meanwhile the contrast in managing the sport at state level between Football Victoria and Football Queensland could not be more stark. In a statement released late last month FV cautioned clubs on refunding player fees and said its fees and charges to clubs would remain in place whereas its Queensland counterpart in the same month released an updated document entitled “Refund of Governing Body Fees Policy”. That refund policy statement alerted clubs and players to FFA’s National Refund Policy and outlined the application process involved. Last week the Queensland body released another statement on the cur-

rent situation and explained the reasons for updating its refund policy. In part it said “… the FQ Refund Policy was updated to provide clubs with greater clarity around the refund process for governing body fees, eligibility and payments, and to assist clubs in communicating the refund process to their members.” Last week’s statement also gave a breakdown of how registration fees for junior and senior players are used. Pines head coach Kevin “Squizzy” Taylor lamented the different approaches by the two state federations. “The Queensland approach was to clearly outline and articulate why the fees are charged whereas here in Victoria I’d be surprised if many people genuinely know where the fees are going,” he said. “I’m sure most people look at them and say ‘it’s just wages’. “I have no idea why we are kept in the dark here.” One club that seems set to ignore FV’s repayment advice is Peninsula Strikers juniors. Strikers senior club vice-president Steve Schreck liaises between the senior and junior clubs and echoed Taylor’s sentiments when it came to FV’s handling of the current situation.

“From my viewpoint the mixed messages initially coming from FV were very frustrating and apart from that we’ve had nothing from them, no direction, nothing,” Schreck said. “Pretty much our costs are fixed at junior level and I’ve told Rob Harrington (Peninsula juniors president) to give people their money back if they ask for it.” Schreck also hit out at FV over a recent survey conducted by its competitions department. “They surveyed NSL seniors and juniors and community clubs but rather than asking what we think they just wanted to know about ground availability. “They’re not looking at the big picture and my fear is that if the season does get underway we won’t have even half of the players we had at the start of the year.” FV’s survey was intended to give it a better handle on fixturing and how the season might look if and when it restarts. The federation is looking into the possibility of extending the season into summer. One of the positives to emerge from the survey was the spirit of cooperation between some clubs. Pines have contacted both Skye United and Seaford United who are winter tenants at their respective venues and offered to come to a suitable arrangement for all three clubs to use Monterey Reserve if required. “We just thought both these clubs will be in trouble once the cricket clubs move back in,” Pines gaffer Taylor said. “I thought to myself ‘well Skye’s just down the road and we get on well with them’ and I also put in a call to Willie Lynn (Seaford president) the other night making him a similar offer. “We’ve got the ground, we’ve got the lights and we can play seven days a week if need be. “Rather than clubs having to fork out huge amounts of money to use alternative venues we can come up with something to assist them. “These clubs are just around the corner, they’re good people and we’re more than happy to help out. “I’ve got no doubts that if we were in their position they’d do the same for us.”

Noonan nails long-range plan HORSE RACING

By Ben Triandafillou MORNINGTON-based racehorse trainer Tony Noonan has landed a blowout result at Caulfield on Saturday 18 April as his tough filly Florent took out The VOBIS Sires Guineas on the three-day back-up. Having finished fifth over 1400m at Geelong on Wednesday 15 April, the three-year-old daughter of Fiorente stepped out once again over the mile in the Guineas at the odds of $51 before executing Noonan’s long-range plan to perfection. The tough filly had been luckless at her first two starts this prep before landing the dream run in transit on Saturday with the aid of a nice barrier – something she hadn’t received at her two previous runs. Florent, ridden by Noonan’s son Jake, still had to be good enough to make it count and certainly didn’t disappoint to hold half-of-a-length margin over the rest of the field. Trainer Tony Noonan said it took a certain type of horse to be able to back-up after racing three days prior. “You couldn’t do that with many horses,” Noonan said. “She’s only a small filly but she’s a very gross sort of filly so her racing was going to bring her to peak fitness and because she’s such a tough little filly she was one that we felt it might work with. “She’s by Fiorente and out of a Pins mare so her pedigree also gave us some confidence that we’d be able to achieve it.”

Noonan said there were also numerous factors that decided whether they went ahead with the plan. “She didn’t have a very hard run [on the Wednesday] so that then gave us some confidence that she might have been in a position to be able to back up but there was a number of parameters that needed to be ticked

off,” he said. “One was whether she ate up after the race, how she trotted out the next day, what her blood was like on Thursday, so all those things needed to be in place and fortunately they were all good which allowed us to go ahead with the plan.” With Florent’s main target ticked

off, she’ll now potentially progress towards a black-type race in Adelaide. “She may go to Adelaide for a Fillies and Mares Group Two race over 1600m, and she’ll probably be nominated for the Oaks over there which is in a fortnight time over 2000m but I would think that’s unlikely,” Noonan

said. “She’ll probably have two more runs here as well before she goes for a break.” Florent was purchased for $22,000 as a yearling from the Magic Millions Gold Coast March Yearling Sale and has now raced 10 times for two wins and three placings, with prizemoney of $284,905.
