Gates open at 8.30am and there is plenty to see and do before the flying display commences.

There are ground displays of vintage aircraft and visiting aircraft arrivals. Re-enactment camps of WW11 and Vietnam era, commercial displays and there is display of classic and exotic cars, as well as refreshments and aviation merchandise for sale. So be early and beat the rush. At our last airshow we had a record crowd so it is strongly recommended you visit www.tyabbairshow.com.au and purchase tickets on line to speed entry and avoid queues. Official Proceedings commence 10.00am and show closes 4.00pm. This is a family-friendly-alcohol-free event.

No animals (except service dogs). Bring a blanket or camp chair for your airshow viewing comfort.

The most exciting event on the Mornington Peninsula, The Tyabb Airshow returns Sunday March, 10th. An unmissable opportunity to experience Tyabb's world class range of aircraft. An incredible array of unique, historic and modern aircraft will be in action. Ranging from restored World War II aircraft such as the Warhawk and Mustang, to classic biplanes like the Boeing Stearman and Tiger Moth. In addition, we look forward to welcoming high performance aircraft from the Australia Defence Force to visit during the day. A substantial portion of funds raised by the Tyabb Airshow will be provided to Community Service organizations. Peninsula Aero Club has a long history of running airshows at Tyabb to raise funds for charities on the Mornington Peninsula, with over $160,000 being donated over the past three aishows.

This year’s airshow again offers all the opportunity to get up close with these incredible machines, learn about their history, and even meet the passionate pilots who keep these beautiful birds in the sky.

Whether you're a seasoned aviation aficionado or a curious novice, the Airshow's unique aircraft collection is bound to leave you fascinated and inspired.

The 2024 Tyabb Airshow will also have a number of ground displays including multiple vintage and modern fixed wing aircraft, as well as several helicopters. Displays from the Australia Defence Force, Cerberus Band and the CFA have been a fixture of prior airshows, and we look forward to welcoming these back in 2024.

Peninsula Aero Club pilots and others donated their time and aircraft for this event, and we are pleased to have Paul Bennett and other top aerobatic pilots demonstrating the limits of aerodynamics and human performance.

This Year’s Beneficiaries of the Tyabb Airshow include, Westernport Community Support Group, which is a not-for-profit community-based organisation providing a wide range of services to families and individuals residing in the Westernport region Hastings & The Pines Salvos to support their 2024 Human Powered Vehicle (HPV) project. This will involve youth from lower social economic areas into an activity which improves their skills in mechanical work, fitness, teamwork and also provides a sound background in sportsmanship.

Other include the Tyabb CFA, Mt Eliza Lions Club and the Tyabb Football Netball Club.

Don’t miss a great day out with friends and family.

Inspiring authors for a ‘better world’

GRADE 5 students at Moorooduc Primary School are getting the opportunity to write, illustrate and publish their own book with the help of a published author.

The students’ brief is to create and publish a children’s story that inspires others to make the world a better place.

Mornington-based writer Jane Ting, author of the Zac’s Happy Planet children’s picture books, will help guide students through the creative writing process.

“I want to give students an insight into the whole publishing process, so they have a real insight into children’s picture book publishing,” she said.

“Their goal is to create a book that seeks to make the world a better place – which is exactly the same motivation behind my children’s picture books, Zac’s Happy Planet, which introduces sustainable ideas to children to take simple steps to help the environment, so I’m very excited to see what they come up with.”

Ting said children usually had fantastic ideas and did not overcomplicate things.

“It’s crucial to introduce and educate sustainable ideas to young children to gain an understanding in their early years,” she said.

The students will use “project-based learning” - a hands-on learning strategy - to become authors and create stories to “help change the world”.

Teacher Michelle Dunn said project-based learning was a “dynamic and hands-on learning strategy that empowered students to explore real-world problems, challenges and meaningful projects”.

The system encouraged active engagement, critical thinking and collaboration.

Suspended without apology

things I didn’t do, and I find it offensive that I have been asked to do so,” Bissinger told The News on Monday.

CR SUSAN Bissinger has been suspended from Mornington Peninsula Shire Council for 31 days after a state government-appointed arbiter found she had “engaged in misconduct”.

Bissinger was told of the arbiter’s findings and her suspension 12 hours before it came into effect at midnight last Friday (23 February).

However, she remains steadfast in claiming that she did nothing wrong and refuses to apologise, which was a direction made by the arbiter, Joel A Silver.

“The apology requirements … make it impossible. I cannot apologise for

She did not agree with the suspension and was investigating contesting Silver’s findings.

“I have not lied at any time and, hopefully, the truth will eventually come out,” she said. A statement issued by the shire on Friday said the 31-day suspension “is the maximum penalty available to the arbiter”.

The shire listed the arbiter’s findings which followed 19 allegations of misconduct made by her colleagues Crs Steve Holland, Debra Mar, Despi O’Connor and Sarah Race.

Two of the allegations were subse-

quently withdrawn and Silver found seven of the remaining 17 “proven”.

Silver said the proven allegations involved Bissinger's “untrue public statements” that the CEO John Baker had restricted her access to shire staff because she “opposed flying the Intersex Pride Flag at council premises”.

He was “satisfied” that Bissinger understood Baker had limited her access to staff because of her “poor patterns of behaviour”.

“The fact that Cr Bissinger did not accept others' concerns about her did not mean she did not understand them,” Silver said.

The hearings into Bissinger followed a direction from then mayor Holland to undergo personal devel-

opment training in the wake of two mediation sessions (Councillor to undergo ‘development training’ The News 24/10/24).

Since news of Bissinger’s suspension from council broke, the Council Watch organisation - which “aims to keep councils honest” - has called for Silver to be “immediately” sacked from the government’s panel of arbiters.

In a letter to Local Government Minister Melissa Horne, Council Watch president Dean Hurston said, “in cases such as this, the removal of indemnity and VCAT appeal rights, would cause severely unfair rulings such as this to be acceptable”.

“As minister, you must intervene in

this matter now, otherwise councillors across the state can have no confidence at all in the councillor conduct framework and arbitration process.”

Hurston said Bissinger had been treated unfairly and denied natural justice.

“The pontification in the document [Silver’s findings] is outrageous from any arbiter,” he said.

The shire will include Silver’s 38 page report in the agenda for council’s Tuesday 5 March public meeting.

“Council is pleased the matter has now been resolved and remains focussed on delivering the best possible service to our community,” the unattributed statement issued by the shire last Friday said.

Fires keep crews busy and on alert

LAST week’s dry, hot weather sparked a number of grass fires across the Mornington Peninsula and kept fire brigades on alert.

A grass fire in Duells Road, Rosebud, on Wednesday (21 February) saw emergency crews from Fire Rescue Victoria join CFA brigades from Boneo and Rosebud to bring it under control.

There were also scrub fires on the Mornington Peninsula Freeway between Lonsdale Street and McCulloch Street, Rosebud, with other fires along the freeway rumoured to have been caused by sparks from a vehicle.

Others, including one near Devilbend Reserve at Teurong, were caused by dry grass igniting in the 37 degree temperatures fuelled by hot winds. Twelve units responded to the blaze.

A fire on Peninsula Link, towards Frankston, forced closure of the southbound lane, creating road blocks for several kilometres.

Fire also broke out in Mount Eliza, near the Wooralla Road and Moorooduc Freeway intersection, reportedly caused by a tree over power lines. Several properties lost power for a short time.

Around 7pm, a fire in Woods Reserve, Moorooduc is believed to have been caused by a lightning strike. Fourteen fire crews attended, with some remaining until 1am.

High rise hearings

A VCAT hearing assessing a proposed 14-storey building at 446-450 Nepean Highway in Frankston is underway.

Frankston Council approved plans for the controversial 14 storey tower at 446-450 Nepean Highway in November 2022. The proposal, titled Harbour Frankston, will be built at the former home of the Pint and Pickle restaurant if it gets VCAT’s approval.

The VCAT hearing began last week on Thursday 22 February, and continued into Friday. The Long Island Residents Group Inc and the Frankston Beach Association Inc were listed among the objectors.

The 14-storey apartment building plans were approved by Frankston Council with a 5-4 vote. Those plans, as well as plans for a 16-storey building at 438-444 Nepean Highway set to be considered by VCAT soon, sparked protests throughout 2023. “Stop the Great Wall Of Frankston” protesters again met to voice their opposition last week.

Building heights in Frankston’s CBD, including the Nepean Highway near Kananook Creek, are currently undergoing a raft of changes. Council’s FMAC structure plan is going through the planning panel process - the plan outlines new preferred height limits of up to 54 metres, around 16 storeys, in parts of Frankston’s CBD. Planning minister Sonya Kilkenny has implemented interim 12 storey limits near Kananook Creek in the meantime (“Higher height limits approved” The Times 30/10/23).

Plans for a 15-storey at 424-426 Nepean Highway in Frankston have also been submitted to council for approval. They were exhibited in December.

The planned developments have come back into focus during the Dunkley by-election. Liberal candidate for Dunkley Nathan Conroy has been Frankston mayor for the last three years, and has championed the FMAC structure plan and its new height limits throughout his tenure. Brodie Cowburn

Cash shortfall threat to free legal services

THE Peninsula Community Legal Centre in Frankston says it will have to cut some of its free services if its government funding doesn’t increase.

The PCLC offers free legal services and advice to people across many areas, including housing, family arrangements, employment, health, finances, and personal safety. PCLC CEO Jackie Galloway says that the centre is helping more people than ever in the midst of the cost of living crisis, and that increased funding is badly needed.

“With so many struggling with the cost of living and housing crises, we are seeing an unprecedented number of people who are buckling under the weight of their legal problems coming to us for help,” Galloway said. “Just at the time when the community needs us the most, we are facing a funding crisis and cannot meet this unprecedented demand for our services. Both the federal and state governments need to take action to increase our funding this year or we will be at risk of having to cut programs and staff to address the funding shortfall”.

The PCLC estimates that a quarter of its clients reside within the federal electorate of Dunkley. A little more than 70 per cent of them are financially disadvantaged, and one third are living with a disability or mental health issue.

With the Dunkley by-election looming on 2 March, The News asked major party candidates Jodie Belyea and Nathan Conroy if they planned to advocate for more funding for the PCLC if elected - neither responded before publication deadline. Frankston MP Paul Edbrooke was also contacted for comment.

Galloway says that more than half of the PCLC’s work in the last six months was in the family law field.

“Our family violence duty lawyer recently represented a woman with a complex series of legal problems who illustrates the kind of client we would no longer be able to assist in the same way without additional funding to continue our services at current levels. In this case, our duty lawyer assisted our client to obtain a family violence intervention order against her husband at the Frankston Magistrates’ Court. Our lawyers also suc-

cessfully assisted her with her divorce hearing at the Family Court, as well as a criminal charge for driving while suspended due to accumulated fines, resulting in the charge and fine being withdrawn,” Galloway said. “Without the support of PCLC’s legal expertise she would have been unlikely to resolve these life-altering problems as successfully, if at all.”

The centre has also recently assisted people being evicted from housing, and helped block rent increases. It has represented renters at 367 VCAT hearings in the last year.

The PCLC estimates that community legal centres in Australia are forced to turn away more than 200,000 people each year under the current funding model “Access to justice should not be based on the size of your wallet,” Galloway said. “Without our services, many in our community would be at risk of continuing exposure to threats such as family violence, homelessness or out of control debt.

“Community legal centres are facing a national funding crisis. We are calling on the Commonwealth government to increase funding to the sector by $125m per year to ensure that programs and services aren’t forced to close.”

Shire calls for ‘cost shifting’ talks

MORNINGTON Peninsula Shire wants an inquiry into services for ratepayers being “jeopardised” by state and federal governments finance cuts.

A lengthy, but unattributed report tabled at the council’s Tuesday 20 February public meeting, says government cost shifting will add $38 million to shire expenses in 2023-24, blowing out to “a staggering” $234 million over the next five years.

The increased costs and reduction of government grants is “jeopardising both the provision of essential services and the financial sustainability of local governments”.

Shire CEO John Baker said the shire was considering arranging for a meeting of “a range of [Victorian] mayors” to have a “poltical conversation” about government cost shifting.

The report says cost shifting occurs when state and federal governments expect councils to maintain service levels while grants are reduced and by expecting local government to expand their services without adequate resources.

Areas for which local governments have been mandated to provide and which are vulnerable to the cuts include kindergartens, waste recycling and the management of foreshores.

In the current year, more than $5 million is expected to be spent by the shire on street lighting ($2.5m), extreme weather events ($2m) and the October council elections $800,000).

“Regrettably, these mandates [imposed by the state and federal governments] often come without sufficient funding, considering the level of service expected,” the report states.

“With 81 per cent of MPSC's revenue origi-

nating from rates, the council finds itself in a precarious position, shouldering the brunt of these shifted costs.”

The state government’s Fair Go Rating System - which limits annual increases to council rates, or rate cap - is seen as “a thorn in MPSC’s side” that challenges its long-term financial viability.

“The system curtails the council's ability to generate necessary revenue for maintaining service standards and investing in community assets.”

A significant surge in local government expenses has led to a “downward trajectory” in the shire’s ability to deliver services and renew infrastructure.

“Regrettably” local government had a “limited arsenal” to counteract cost shifting.

The report lists “viable strategies” as trimming spending in some services; using the budget surplus normally used for capital works; seeking an exemption from the rate cap; and lobbying for more money funding from the state and federal governments.

Cr David Gill, who successfully moved that the shire “asks the state government to review the range of council services provided in light of government cost shifting of their responsibilities onto ratepayers”, said it was the first stage of a broader campaign.

“I don’t know how the state and federal governments get away with the lack of scrutiny, the transparency and lack of consultation - they just make decisions,” he said.

“We go through a process and, if we make a mistake, we cop it. In my view, we just have to say sorry, and we make up for it. But when we compare ourselves to state and federal [on consulting] they don’t bother. They just get away with it.

“I don’t find too many people saying that we shouldn’t be looking after our kids in terms

of safety or kindergartens, or child welfare centres. If we did start to say that I’m sure that it would make The Briars [Harry Potter show] episode into just a Sunday picnic.

“I just want us to be able to draw the line. What are the things that we don’t need? What are the ones that are not necessary?”

Cr Susan Bissinger said council should “examine everything [it does] under the microscope” and cut costs.

“We need to be cognisant of what is important and what is not. What our residents see as important and just stop with all the frilly stuff for a while,” she said.

Bissinger said she was “not a fan” of hearing complaints about rate capping “when nothing’s done about the cost savings on the other side”.

Cr Anthony Marsh agreed with “part” of what Bissinger had said: “Often councils find themselves dabbling in things maybe they shouldn’t, or maybe they should consult a bit more, and that stuff can often be expensive.”

However, most council services were things “we wouldn’t want to get out of unless we knew that it was going to be delivered properly”.

Cr Sarah Race said the cost shifting report “makes for stark reading”.

She said financing of local government differed overseas, giving the example of Germany where local governments “can’t take on anything else unless fully funded by the German government”.

Part of the ongoing discussion should be about different ways for local government to be financed.

“It can’t just be what the state and federal governments are doing to us, and it is terrible, but we also have to look at what a solution could be,” Race said. “It shouldn’t just be cost shifting, woe is us.”

Green Wedge ‘no’

THE state’s planning tribunal has knocked back a proposal to build a house on green wedge land in Shoreham.

The Victorian Civil and Administrative Tribunal set aside Mornington Peninsula Shire Council’s approval for the house on 4.323-hectares in Tucks Road and ruled that no permit is granted.

The tribunal case relates to a planning permit notice originally issued in 2022 by the shire to use and develop the land at 340 Tucks Road for a house, remove native vegetation and associated works, including to an existing driveway at 336 Tucks Road.

The matter was referred to the tribunal over questions relating to the bushfire management overlay. It returned to the tribunal in December, with the applicants arguing that the development was not in keeping with green wedge policies.

VCAT member Joel Templar agreed, saying the policy basis for decision making regarding dwellings in the green wedge zone was “strongly swayed against the establishment of dwellings”.

“In this circumstance, I have found that the benefits from a green wedge perspective from the establishment of a dwelling is limited and I have not been persuaded that such benefits will be significant enough to warrant support of this proposal,” he said.

The tribunal also found there was no “favourable outcome” or “agricultural benefits” from any agricultural pursuits that would be included with the development.

The tribunal found the agricultural pursuits proposed by the land owners were not significant enough to outweigh any shortcomings the proposal had from a policy perspective.

The applicants had wanted to graze up to 15 sheep, manage weeds, continue a vineyard, reinvigorate existing olive trees, and maintain a riverside (riparian) area. The allotment is dissected by Mantons Creek.

Cr David Gill welcomed the tribunal’s decision, and said it was refreshing to see green wedge protections upheld.

The original planning application had been approved by council officers and had not come before councillors. Liz Bell

On course for all abilities at Mt Martha

THE challenge was to play golf with closed eyes and using just one club held in the left hand for a right-handed person or the other way around for a left-hander.

A partner or caddie would stand you close to the ball and describe the required putt or drive.

The experienced golfers taking part in the game at Mount Martha Golf Course. probably set their own personal bests for the most shots ever, both on the green and on the fairway.

The idea of the golf session was to train golfers to help with an all abilities program being run at the course.

Mount Martha Golf Club and golf professional Sandy Jamieson were using a training program developed by Golf Australia to support golfers with a physical, sensory or intellectual disability.

Jamieson, who has developed a universal club for players to use for all their shots, held a training session at Mount Martha on Monday 19 February on how to deliver 1Club golf to people with a disability.

He described the training day as “a massive success”, and the club now plans to hold an all abilities golf day in March.

Club member Joh Bowers, one of 12 who undertook Jamieson’s training session, said the all abilities program was “a simple way to learn to play golf”.

“It starts with about five or 10 minutes on the putting green, making

small swings to get the ball into the hole and hitting it in the middle of the club face.

“The club is designed with a circle on the middle of the face to which you can apply a pressure sensitive sticker.

“This then turns blue when the ball is struck on the sticker. So, it provides instant feedback to the player.”

Bowers said Jamieson’s training included a talk in the Bunker Room

before moving to the putting green.

“So, armed with our one club, we started to try to hole putts from close to the hole, then graduating to hitting the ball to more distant holes,” he said.

“We had to hold our club differently. If you were right handed you either used a left hand club or you only used your left hand to hold the club. People and balls were everywhere.

“Next, we played a hole, still with

the wrong club or hand and we had to hit it as many times as possible to get to the hole.

“The next hole was played with as big a swing as you wanted to dooften missing, so you had to shorten the swing.

“Finally, we had to play with our eyes closed and rely on our partner/ caddie to get us around the course and help line up our shots.”

Bowers said the training “gave us a feeling of what it might feel like for some people to hit a golf ball” and understand how the program works.

He said Mornington Peninsula Shire was “on board” with its disability inclusion officer Monica Seal helping to organise the first event at 1pm on Friday 22 March.

Hospital’s tour of ‘gratitude’

A MOUNT Martha resident with an historical connection to the Alfred Hospital was visited by staff members last week.

Felicity Jackson met with The Alfred Foundation during a Tour of Gratitude to meet and thank donors associated with hospital.

Jackson’s great grandfather, Henry O’Hara, was a surgeon at the hospital from 1878 to 1912 – and it is in his name that an award for surgical research at the The Alfred has been offered for the past 20 years.

The Henry O’Hara Surgical Research Award finances small research studies conducted by surgical trainees.

The award was launched by Jackson in 2004 after receiving an inheritance from her mother.

“Henry O’Hara was such a huge part of my mother’s family stories,” Jackson said. “Mum

used to sit around telling us wonderful tales of his very colourful life and I’m very pleased that his name is still in the public arena with this award.”

Jackson, who lived in Red Hill from the early 1990s before moving to Mount Martha four years ago, said the award was also a way of thanking The Alfred for the care her mother received for six weeks during her time of greatest need.

“It was a pleasure to meet one of our longterm supporters and to hear firsthand how the family’s connection with the hospital has continued over several generations and will continue well into the future,” Marlo Newton, the foundation’s senior manager of major gifts said.

Sailing to success

LACHLAN Vize, of McCrae, is making waves in windsurfing and wing foiling, having recently returned from the Windsurfer World Titles held in Perth, where he won the male youth title and came fourth out of a fleet of 250 boards in the slalom.

He competed against local and international sailors in the light weight division slalom event and a marathon. His placing in the youth division means he also won a scholarship to help

pay his way to the next windsurfer world titles. Vize also represented Australia late last year at the Pacific Games where he won silver and bronze medals, as well as being selected as male youth athlete of the games.

He is now back home and training for his windsurfing and also wing foiling, the newest Olympic sport.

Wing foiling (wing surfing or winging) is a wind propelled water sport that developed from kitesurfing, windsurfing and surfing.

Standing on a board, the sailor holds a wing which generates forces upwards and sideways.

Drone delivers P-plater bookings

THREE probationary drivers had their vehicles impounded and were fined after being filmed by a drone hoon driving in Mornington on Wednesday 21 February.

The trio, a 20-year-old male and a 19-year-old male from Frankston, and a 20-year-old male from Langwarrin, were arrested when Somerville Highway Patrol responded to complaints of hoon driving in Milgate Drive, Mornington.

With the assistance of the police drone operated by Mornington police, the three were caught on camera performing burnouts.

All vehicles were impounded on the spot for 30 days, with two of the vehicles issued defect notices.

The men will be charged on summons at a later date for improper use of a motor vehicle and using unsafe vehicles.

Anyone with information related to hoon drivers is urged to phone Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000 or make an online report at crimestoppersvic. com.au

man over the alleged manufacture and distribution of cloned licence plates throughout Frankston and the Mornington Peninsula.

Police will allege the false plates were copied from Victorian registration plates already in use, before the vehicles with the cloned plates were then involved in additional crimes, including alleged burglaries in Cranbourne.

It is believed the cloned plates were being made to order after being copied from online car sale advertisements.

Following inquiries, the Frankston Crime Investigation Unit searched a house on Mahogany Avenue, Frankston North, just after 6.30am on Thursday 22 February.

During a search police found several false Victorian number plates and equipment used to manufacture false plates, including a laser cutting printer, adhesives, number plate templates and tin, as well as templates from sets of cloned plates that had allegedly previously been made. Police also seized electronic devices from the property.

A Frankston North man, 44, was arrested and charged with negligently dealing with proceeds of crime, mak-

ing false document, and possessing a drug of dependence.

He was bailed to appear at Frankston Magistrates’ Court on 19 March 2024.

Anyone with additional information that may help investigators can contact Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000 or make a confidential report at crimestoppersvic.com.au

Investigation open

MORE than two years after a couple were assaulted in their Mornington home detectives are making a renewed appeal for information.

Detectives have been told an offender armed with a firearm forced his way into a house in Grange Road sometime between 4am and 5am on Thursday 16 September 2021 and threatened the two residents.

A physical altercation ensued before the offender stole a mobile phone and fled the scene.

One of the victims, a 74-year-old man, sustained minor facial injuries and was taken to hospital, while the woman, 66, was treated for minor injuries at the scene by ambulance paramedics.

Towing safety a hit

POLICE will hold a second police education campaign on towing safety after the first which was held over the weekend in Mornington.

Operation Know Your Limit was held at HomeCo in Bungower Road on Saturday 24 February, with police from Mornington and Somerville Highway Patrol chatting to dozens of drivers about towing capacity and towing-related road safety.

Mornington Lions Club ran a sausage sizzle to raise money for the Blue Ribbon Foundation.

Senior Constable Travis Perkins said statistics suggested that about 80 per cent of vehicles towing caravans and trailers were overweight.

“This is extremely concerning for motorists who, in the event of an insurance claim, may be denied liability due to non-compliant vehicle/trailer combinations,” he said,

Over summer police saw an increase in the number of vehicles towing caravans, horse floats and boats, and an increase in vehicles towing being involved in fatal collisions.

“For some it’s for work, others it’s for recreational activities and travel. There are potential issues that should be considered to ensure drivers are towing safely,” Perkins said.

Increased weight in the vehicle or trailer could impact handling, vehicle behavior and put excess strain on vehicle components. Increased combined mass increased braking distance and time.

Last weekend’s operation included demonstrations and information about services available to ensure safe towing of vehicles. Presentations included understanding tow ball down weight, aggregate trailer mass, gross trailer mass, gross combined mass and towing capacities.

Perkins said the operation generated a lot of public interest and community engagement.

Holiday maker Benjamin Schlink, who has been travelling with his family and a caravan from Darwin, said the display was informative.

“There should be more presentations like this. We have towed our caravan around most parts of Australia and this session has given us a greater understanding of both safety and compliance,” he said.

Perkins said Operation Know Your Limit aimed to reduce road trauma and aligned with Victoria Police Road Safety Strategy 2021-2024.

Operation Know Your Limit will run again at HomeCo. Peninsula, 10am and 3pm on Saturday 16 March.

Aged care residents making a move

RESIDENTS from the Calvary Bonbeach aged care centre will move to the company’s George Vowell centre, Mount Eliza and other Victorian centres.

There are 49 residents at Bonbeach and the Mount Eliza centre has been expanded to include an extra 19 beds.

“Clinically suitable” residents from Bonbeach will get priority to live in the new wing at Mount Eliza which has bedrooms with private bathrooms “among contemporary living spaces indoors and outdoors to support ageing in comfort”.

The company says the Bonbeach building mostly had shared bathrooms and bedrooms and was “unable to meet the expectations of contemporary age care services into the future”.

Calvary says Bonbeach will “cease operations” by 31 May and support the transition of staff and residents to one of its 30 other Victorian centres or another aged care provider.

The Station Street site of Calvary Bonbeach will be sold.

“Closing Bonbeach has been a very difficult decision,” Calvary’s acting regional chief executive for Victoria Bryan McLoughlin said.

“At Calvary we are committed to our mission to serve our communities through modern and high quality care services, and we will be supporting our Bonbeach residents and staff to ensure a smooth transition to a new home offering more suitable and contemporary amenities.”

Calvary’s history in Australia dates back to 1885, when six sisters sailed into Sydney to continue the mission of Venerable Mary Potter and the Sisters of the Little Company of Mary.

Today, Calvary has hospitals, home and virtual care services, retirement living and residential aged care homes in five states and two territories. Details: calvarycare.org.au

Talks to navigate the motherhood journey

Monington Peninsula woman by midwife Penelope Watson.

Watson is a senior midwife in Mount Eliza, as well as being a staff member at the maternity unit of non-profit The Bays Hospital, Mornington.

She is also a breast cancer patient of The Bays and understands personally and professionally the difficulty and stress of navigating the health landscape.

Watson says it was her drive to rekindle women’s “villages” for those on the journey from womanhood to motherhood that inspired her to create WithYou Talks, which bring together a range of pregnancy specialists.

“The talks series aims to inform, engage and guide individuals on their pre-pregnancy and pregnancy journeys,” she said.

A midwife of 26 years, Watson says her mission is to empower and support women throughout their antenatal, birth, and postpartum journeys, by championing a continuity of midwifery care model as the gold standard of pregnancy care.

Her WithYou Talks is a series of talks she hosts with specialists in pre-pregnancy and pregnancy.

The first talk on Thursday 14 March discusses Preparing for Pregnancy, and will cover the journey towards motherhood, expert insights and tips.

Watson will also cover topics such as what to expect from pregnancy, lifestyle changes to increase the chances of conceiving, how to maintain a supportive relationship with a partner during the pregnancy journey, and nutrition and breastfeeding.

Watson says the talks are a “community-led dialogue where questions, thoughts, and experiences are celebrated”.

For details call Penelope Watson on 0425 705 316 or email info@withyoumidwifery.com.au

Is Frankston having its Geelong moment?

Frankston is in the middle of a ‘glow up’.

Visitors are filling our streets, cranes are dotting our skyline, and key streets have undergone some serious facelifts.

The Victorian Government has identified Frankston as a Metropolitan Activity Centre, and in response the local council has embraced Frankston becoming the ‘capital of the south east’.

The Frankston Metropolitan Activity Centre Plan (FMAC) is the document underpinning bold ambitions for sustainable development, private and public investment, diverse housing options, and destination shopping and dining promenades.

Like Geelong, Frankston has an enviable waterfront precinct which has been successfully activated over the past decade and now hosts major annual events, concerts and festivals.

Alongside the waterfront, Kananook Creek winds its way past Nepean Highway and meets the pristine sands and waters of a beach which is regularly voted Melbourne’s best. With the greatest respect to other key activity centres in Metropolitan Melbourne, none of them have got what Frankston does.

And this is changing the way we want to work.

Over in Geelong, big four firm KPMG opened an office in

the city’s centre. This move acknowledges that the quality of staff they are hoping to attract now expect a greater emphasis on work-life balance and short commutes to work.

This lifestyle-leading model is appealing to many prospective employees, and like Geelong, Frankston is well placed to emulate this attractive working environment.

The last three decades have been transformative for Geelong – headlined by the Pyramid Building Society collapse and closure of the Ford factory. Significant forces like these meant that local government and industry had to organise itself and collectively speak up for their city.

Local community leaders like Frank Costa helped set up the Committee for Geelong, in an effort to encourage investment from all levels of Government and embrace their status as Victoria’s second city.

Fast forward to today, and Geelong boasts major employers like the TAC, National Disability Insurance Agency, and WorkSafe. It’s also getting its more than fair share from Government.

The Committee for Frankston & Mornington Peninsula found $22,823 is spent on infrastructure per person in City of Greater Geelong – a

whopping $20,506 more than a resident on the Peninsula!

Back in Geelong, an influx of Melburnians has gentrified many of its surrounding suburbs, bringing with it laneway eating and dining, a brand new Arts Centre, and a planned Convention and Exhibition Centre set to open in 2026.

Of course, changes as significant as these have brought challenges to housing stock, rental affordability, and infrastructure problems.

Even the most casual observer couldn’t help but make comparisons to two cities both just under an hour from Melbourne’s CBD – which is why it’s crucial we look to address

what our region looks like in twenty year’s time and start tackling some of those growing pains right now.

The politics too is similar, which is often as crucial as any other factor in the success of a region.

The federal electorate of Dunkley and state electorate of Frankston are crucial in either side of politics forming government. Essentially, you can’t govern in Victoria without the people of Frankston.

And this has been crucial in the city’s more recent success. Investments in redeveloping the Frankston Hospital, Frankston train station, level crossing removals, Chisholm TAFE upgrades and more car parking for commuters

are just some of the major projects delivered by successive governments since 2014.

However, Government shouldn’t take Frankston for granted. This city is on the precipice of something special and the next few decades will be transformative for the way we live, work and play on the Peninsula.

Frankston is a good fifteen years behind Geelong. Can we learn from the lessons across the bay and embrace the changing face of Frankston CBD? Only time will tell.

Josh Sinclair is the CEO of Committee for Frankston & Mornington Peninsula www.cfmp.org.au

In this lofty home building series, returning with its eighth Kiwi season, you can count on budget issues denting homeowners’ vision and spirit.

‘Ecological disaster’ unless cats are controlled

The suburbs of Melbourne that have none of the many species of birds once common in Blairgowrie have arrived on the Mornington Peninsula. Where have they gone? Killed by cats (Dumping a problem for cats and wildlife, The News 6/2/24).

There is a golf course estate in a neighbouring municipality where cats are banned. It has become a haven for many species of birds, and it is not unusual to see bandicoots and other animals in broad daylight. Cats hunt day and night and kill for food or to satisfy an instinct.

The peninsula is on the verge of an ecological disaster as the cat problem is out of control.

A domestic or a feral cat may kill 200 birds or small animals a year. At a time when the peninsula’s ecology is under threat the shire has suspended its cat trapping program because it can no longer vaccinate feral cats taken to its animal shelter because of a vaccine shortage. This decision is partly based on information supplied by the RSPCA that appears to show it wastes money on neutering and vaccinating feral animals despite Department of Agriculture advice that they may be euthanised.

Our shire needs to rethink its cat policy, feral and domestic. I walk at daybreak and see more cats on the streets than ever and most of the birds I see are introduced pests (Indian mynahs, doves. and starlings) that take over nesting spaces from smaller native birds. Fortunately, we still have healthy population of magpies and some parrots and Kookaburras.

As a former employee of a shire pest control contractor, I have observed the havoc created by the uncontrolled cat population and the shire needs to lift its game before we lose all our beautiful small birds and wildlife.

End animal cruelty

As Leader for RSPCA Victoria’s south-east region inspectorate, my team of six Inspectors and I share 85 years of experience investigating reports of animal cruelty.

The inspectors and I are often on the road around Melbourne’s inner-east, down to the Mornington Peninsula, and all of Gippsland to the New South Wales border.

Out on the road, we’re seeing how the costof-living crisis is impacting pet owners and their ability to provide basic care for their pets, such as enough food, and access to weather proof housing.

We’re also seeing people unable to provide crucial veterinary care and basic preventative medicines like flea and worming treatments.

We’re extremely grateful to the community for their ongoing vigilance reporting animal cruelty.

Over the past six months, we received 1288 reports and tip-offs about animal cruelty in the south-east and 269 animals were seized or surrendered into our care.

It’s estimated caring for these animals costs RSPCA Victoria at least $460,000.

Last financial year 508 animals came into our care and, sadly, it seems we’re likely to repeat this total again by the end of June.

As we enter what is historically the busiest time of year, we urge everyone in the south-east to remain vigilant for animal cruelty in our area and to report it to RSPCA Victoria by calling 9224 2222 or online at rspcavic.org/crueltyreport.

The community support we see every day keeps us going and makes each day just a little bit better.

RSPCA Inspectors are here to help and thankfully, many of the animals we encounter every day have loving owners who want to do the best they can for their pets.

Together, let’s end animal cruelty.

Stuart Marchesani, RSPCA inspectorate team leader (south-east region)

Sadistic amusement

It is outrageous that the Victorian government has refused to ban duck hunting despite clear recommendations by its own parliamentary inquiry, which received a record 10,500 submissions.

Native ducks are struggling to survive, with climate change, catastrophic fires and drought

affecting their habitats. Surveys have shown that

Heart of the matter

Heart Research Australia is dedicated to reshaping how Australians approach cardiovascular wellbeing without causing financial strain. Beyond our collective effort to raise funds for life-saving research, our goal this year is to shed light on the financial and health implications associated with heart disease, affecting individuals regardless of their financial circumstances.

Heart disease touches the lives of two in three Australians and stands as the leading cause of death. Prioritising heart health is an investment in both personal wellbeing and financial stability. In the midst of escalating living expenses, allocating resources for health might seem like a luxury. However, overlooking heart health can result in severe financial consequences, impacting wages, work capacity, career advancement, and long-term financial stability.

Knowledge plays a pivotal role in fostering a healthier heart, with eight out of 10 cases of premature heart disease and stroke preventable through healthy lifestyle choices. From hearthealthy, budget friendly diets to accessible exercise options and stress management techniques, there are numerous practical and cost-effective strategies.

We invite all Australians to explore our free online Heart Hub, offering a wealth of expert advice on cultivating heart-healthy habits.

Research is a lifeline, emphasising Heart Research Australia’s steadfast support for world class researchers. This is why we encourage all Australians to wear red this February and, if possible, extend a helping hand by contributing to fund vital research against heart disease.

For more information on RedFeb, heart health tips, and to contribute to this critical cause, visit heartresearch.com.au.

Nicci Dent, CEO Heart Research Australia the wetlands are in long-term decline.

Yet every year, hundreds of thousands of birds are blasted out of the sky.

For each bird killed, another is wounded and will die slowly and in agony. Baby ducklings are left to starve.

Let’s not pretend this is sport or done for food – it is sheer sadistic amusement.

It’s time for duck shooting to be banned in Victoria outright.

Desmond Bellamy, special projects coordinator, PETA Australia

History repeats

As the captain of the First Eleven back in 2005/06, I welcome and applaud the decision to return to that model of structure for the upcoming Mornington Peninsula Shire Council elections in October (Wards new names, new boundaries, The News 21/2/24).

Hopefully, the state government stands firm in its commitment to promote this structure for local government in Victoria in the future.

Local government should be free from political influence and the councillors elected to represent their community within their respective wards should “come to the table”, primarily with the knowledge of and interest in “good outcomes for the community they represent” and not be distracted by matters that they can’t have any positive influence over.

Having said that, the councillors who served in that First Eleven proudly wore a sustainability badge which reflected three aspects of sustainability. Blue represented social, green the environment and maroon economic surrounding, yellow coming together as the community across the diverse, unique Mornington Peninsula Shire.

I proudly treasure the cricket bat I was presented with at the end of my mayoral term signed by Crs David Gibb, Bill Goodrem, Dave Gregan, David Jarman, Aldona Martin, Susan Beveridge, Tim Rodgers, Anne Smith, Reade Smith , Bev Colomb and CEO Dr Michael Kennedy. Sadly, Cr Ian Johnston died during that year.

Brian L Stahl, OAM JP, Hastings

Ceasefire in Gaza

The conflicts in Israel, Gaza and the West Bank have killed over 30,000 people including 12,000 children, wounded over 80,000 and displaced over 1.5 million people in just the past four

months.

The bombardment and restrictions on Palestinians by the Israeli government as a means to defend itself and capture Hamas terrorists has been excessive and in violation of international laws.

I was surprised to hear that our MP for Flinders Zoe McKenzie and other politicians had flown to Israel and the West Bank before Christmas.

I am not sure what positive outcomes were achieved by their visit - these tours of Israel could be used to influence politicians and journalists back in Australia.

Our elected representatives, including the Prime Minister Anthony Albanese, Opposition Leader Peter Dutton and Zoe McKenzie MP, must make a united stand in federal parliament to demand an immediate and enduring ceasefire and request increased access to humanitarian aid to avoid a genocide in Gaza.

If the Israeli government and Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu continue to ignore international calls for an immediate ceasefire, Australia must take action to cease financial and military assistance to Israel.

The 1948 Genocide Convention states “… genocide, whether committed in time of peace or in time of war, is a crime under international law which [state parties] undertake to prevent and to punish”. It also outlines that “complicity in genocide” is a punishable act.

Change voting habit

I truly hope that we finally demonstrate some self-respect as a voting public and be the electorate which leads the way in demanding a better standard of political leadership. If a friend was in a disrespectful relationship you’d be telling them to move on. We keep retaining political leadership that treats us with disdain, except when there’s an election.

Our public coffers are treated as personal expense accounts, limitless when supporting their personal or political ideals yet try to get funds for people who actually need it and the bank is dry.

There’s a saying that you get what you accept, and if we keep voting for incompetent political leadership that’s what we get.

We must tell all politicians to improve their standards by putting Labor low, if not last, in the Dunkley by-election. And the Liberals are not much better, deserting their traditional base trying to be popularist and losing their way all over Australia. Put them near the bottom as well.

There are decent contenders from minor parties and, if you vote them first, it won’t change the world immediately, but it will send a wakeup call - do a top job or you are gone.

If you are a traditional Labor voter, the Democratic Labor Party has your back better than Labor (pity they aren’t on the ticket). The rebranded Libertarian Party is a better option than the Liberals, and there are outstanding options among Independents and other minor parties. Stop ticking the Labor or Lib box out of habit.

If we return Labor, given their woeful state and federal performances, we simply say “go on, treat us like fools, no worries, with no selfrespect we’ll just vote for you again”. Or we can draw a line in the sand and change things.

Opinions are not facts

There is an old saying, ”you are welcome to your own opinion, but not your own facts”. Australia’s net debt is only forecast to be $491 billion, a vast improvement on the near $1 trillion that the previous coalition government left behind, thus substantially reducing the debt burden left to our grandchildren (Record of debt, Letters 20/2/24).

The suggestion that the Liberals are lower taxing than Labor is patently wrong. Of the governments over the past 40 years the highest taxing governments (as a percentage of GDP) have always been the Coalition not Labor.

Despite promising surpluses every year, the Coalition delivered nine deficits in a row, whereas the current government has delivered one surplus and likely will deliver a second.

Inflation is now lower than it was under the Coalition and wages have actually risen as opposed to being deliberately suppressed as was the Coalition’s stated policy.

Fairer tax cuts are being delivered, easing the cost of living burden. The retiree tax was largely a fiction of the Liberal Party. No retiree tax was

proposed or even considered at the last election, nor was the Coalition favourite of the dreaded death tax, again another Coalition fiction. Other issues are state issues and crime rates are falling, not rising. As an ex-teacher, the shortage has been known for about a decade and what exactly did the Coalition do about that in its nine years of government? That’s right, nothing, just kicked it down the road for Labor to deal with. Dr Ross Hudson, Mount Martha Candidate questioned

I write to express my deep concerns about what I see as questionable statements being quoted by Nathan Conroy during his current quest to be elected to represent the seat of Dunkley.

Nathan Conroy has said he is the first mayor of Frankston to have been elected for three consecutive years. Records show that Cathy Wilson was elected mayor for three consecutive years in the early 2000s. This can be verified on her LinkedIn profile.

Nathan Conroy is claiming he is responsible for the building of the three room kinder at the Langwarrin Community Centre. The facts here are, he was chased away from commandeering the much loved Long Street Reserve, Langwarrin last year after a gruelling eight-month fight with angry local residents who saved Long Street Reserve.

During a recent interview on Irish radio Nathan Conroy claimed that due to his Irish accent “he can get things out of people that no-one else can”. It’s just amazing, he says.

A warmer Earth

Some American academics, and others, set out to prove the Earth’s climate over the past 7000 years and beyond by taking known data samples and “reconstructing” what the climate was. They fed selected and grossly inadequate data into their computers which had no further knowledge of the infinite complexities and variables involved in planetary climate and got their desired result: there is an “inference” that the climate has been stable, changing by only 0.01 per cent a century. What rubbish to claim this as fact and that now the climate is changing too fast and causing species extinction (Change is needed, Letters 20/2/24).

It is in historical records that just 1000 years ago the Earth was warmer; farming settlements were established in coastal Greenland, surviving for over 300 years until a 500-year planetary cold snap commenced and the settlements got frozen out and abandoned. The river Thames in London used to freeze over solid, until about 1850 when the planet started to warm up again. I argue that the normal planetary temperature is a variable ranging over maybe five degrees. The sun provides the Earth’s climate.

Species extinction is more likely because of human activity and pollution rather than climate change. The Tasmanian tiger is a good example. Greenhouse farmers often add carbon dioxide gas, not to make the hothouse hotter, but to nourish the plants and increase yields.

All green life, plants and algae, love CO2. Can’t get enough of it. Without this rare, heavier than air gas there would be no plant life and no humans.

Ute powered up

The US has had fuel efficiency standards since the 1970s. Of the developed countries, only Australia and Russia don’t have them. Nevertheless, the government’s decision to introduce them has created concern that vehicles will cost more and that there are no real alternatives to diesel-powered trucks and tractors. But the standards only apply to new, light vehicles, not trucks and tractors.

Car dealers may still sell a mix of internal combustion vehicles and electric and hybrid vehicles, as now. What’s changed is that dealers must meet a fleet emissions target encouraging them to buy and sell more low emissions vehicles. It’s hard to argue against lower CO2 emissions and cleaner air.

When Australians realise that the towing capacity of the Ford F150 Lightning electric ute at 4.5t exceeds that of Australia’s most popular car, the Ford Ranger ute at 3.9t, they will want one. Not only are they cheaper to run and maintain, but power tools and fridges can be plugged into them too.

State and federal governments need to provide incentives to increase the availability and reduce the cost of these amazing vehicles in Australia.

Red Hill Show returns this Labour Day weekend– for the 96th time

SATURDAY 9 March the Red Hill Reserve will be home to the Red Hill Show for the 96th time. This year organisers recognise the cost of living crisis and have cancelled the Rich Fruit Cake competition, replacing it with the more accessible Undressed Pavlova competition.

“Dried fruit, butter and energy have all shot up,” says Executive Officer, Bec Davis. “We were watching out fruit cake entries dwindle over the years. We made the hard decision to replace the comp with a pav which costs a third the price to make.” Live judging commences at 10am at the Mornington Peninsula Producers’ Paddock with Noela MacLeod AO from the CWA judging the comp. Host and food writer Richard Cornish (Good Food, ABC Radio) will be joined by former actor/dancer and local MP Paul Mercurio to judge the Golden Sausage Competition – with a rich $500 cash prize for the best sausage. Organisers are urging bakers to vie for the $500 prize for the best apple pie.

Visitors to the family friendly show can taste local Mornington Peninsula Produce such BBQ sweet corn from Hawkes Farm, ciders made from local apples brewed by Mock, Harts Farm and Seven Oaks. Joining them are winemakers from Barmah Park and the award winning distilling team from Bass & Flinders. Local seafarers Harry Mussels will tell us about a life at sea raising amazing mussels and the seaweed growing team, also based at Flinders, Southern Seagreens will be giving out tasters of their freshly harvested and dried kelp.

Back this year is the sweat and axemanship of the woodchop as hardened experts race to cut through great logs of solid hardwood. “We are lucky to have a competition this year, let alone play host to a Victorian Championship,” Bec commented. The mountain men and women from the Red Hill Football Club return with the height of athletic competition including some old time classics - Egg n Spoon Race, Tug of

NEXT GEN ACROBATICS TOURS TO FRANKSTON

CIRCUS meets with contemporary dance when the internationally acclaimed Circa tour to the Frankston Arts Centre in April.

Following their performance of Humans in Frankston back in 2018, this next chapter titled Humans 2.0 is set to thrill audiences again with a symphony of acrobatics, sound and light. Using their own bodies as gymnastic apparatus, the Circa ensemble perform an immensely skilful and physical show about trust and control. From three-story human towers, to handstands on another person’s head, and bodies flying across the stage – the performers’ skills are immense.

The performance follows ten individuals as they move in harmony with each other, before their rhythms shift and physical limits are pushed to the extreme, as they grapple with

the struggle to find balance amid constant uncertainty.

Through choreography that blends movement, dance, theatre, and circus, Humans 2.0 explores not what humans are but how we are – how we connect, attract, repel and attach, how we commune and how we isolate. Can we ever find a perfect equilibrium, or is adapting to constant change the only way forward?

With pulsing music by composer Ori Lichtik, Paul Jackson’s dramatic lighting, and directed by circus visionary Yaron Lifschitz, Humans 2.0 is a must-see.

Experience the incredible talents of Circa at Frankston Arts Centre on Thursday 18 April, 7.30pm. Tickets: $28 - $62. Bookings: 03 9784 1060 or thefac.com.au.

A THREE-day Guitar Fest will be held at the Peninsula Beer Garden, Boneo over the 9 to 11 March long weekend.

The brainchild of peninsula-based musician Steve Myles, who has spearheaded a program to revive live music on the peninsula and give seasoned and aspiring musicians a platform, the event will feature local, interstate and international guitarists and support musicians.

The line-up includes Geoff Achison, blues player Anna Sconti and peninsula-based Ocean Pulse, a group that takes inspiration from vintage surf music and the peninsula’s surf vibe. Myles says the band plays surf music “like Jimi Hendrix”.

be guest appearances and free performances all weekend.

All events are free except for a combined performance on Sunday.

“We have worked hard to put together a great line-up for all – local favourites like Rob Papp, as well as guest appearances from local and international artists,” Myles said.

Fatal Motor Accident at Seaford – Little Boy Killed

Compiled by Cameron McCullough

ON Monday evening; while driving along the Point Nepean Road, near Martin’s Road, Seaford, Mr. Alexander Waddell Fergusson, draper, of Main Street, Mordialloc, saw some children in the road.

He sounded his horn, and the children moved to the side of the road.

One poor little fellow, however, who appeared to get confused, ran back again, and as a result was struck by the car driven by Mr. Fergusson, and run over.

He was at once conveyed to Dr. Maxwell’s surgery, at Frankston, where upon arrival life was found to be extinct.

The little boy, who proved to be Alexander Douglas Aitchison, aged 4½ years, is a son of Dr. R. Douglas Aitchison, of 1 Victoria Avenue, Albert Park.

An inquest was held at the Frankston Police Station, on Tuesday, February 26, before Mr. Philip Wheeler, J.P.

Jessie M. Gennisken, married woman, residing at Martin’s Road, Seaford, said:

I remember the 25th of February, 1924. At about 7.15pm I was in the Point Nepean Road, Seaford, in company of my son John, aged 11 years, and Alexander Douglas Aitchison, aged 4 years and 6 months.

My son, John, had a little cart, and the deceased was sitting in it. I heard a motor car coming behind us. At that time the deceased boy sprung out of the cart, and ran from one side of the road to the other.

The car was travelling towards Sea-

ford. I cannot remember if the driver sounded the horn or not.

When the car got opposite the deceased boy was standing clear of the road, and appeared to be safe, at this time. The deceased could have run in front of the car without me seeing him, as when the car approached us he was hidden from my view by the motor car.

The next thing I saw was the deceased lying between the rear wheels of the car. At this time the car had dragged the boy some distance.

The driver then stopped and had the boy conveyed to Dr. Maxwell’s surgery, Frankston.

The last time I saw the deceased he was in his usual good health and spirits.

Jack McGennisken, a schoolboy, aged 11 years, corroborated his mother’s evidence, with the exception that he heard the horn sounded.

At the time of the accident the car was travelling at 15 miles an hour.

Alexander Waddell Fergusson said: I am a draper, residing in Main Street, Mordialloc. I remember the 25th February. At about 7.15pm I was driving my motor car along the Point Nepean, Road, Seaford, and when near the intersection of that road and Martin’s Road, I noticed a lady and 2 boys in the centre of the road, going in the same direction as I was.

When approaching them I slowed down, and sounded my horn.

At this time the lady and the bigger boy crossed to the right-hand side of the road, and the smaller boy to the left-hand side.

Just as I was opposite the deceased he attempted to cross the road in front

of my car, to where the lady and bigger boy were standing. He was struck by the offside mudguard of my car, and knocked down, and fell under the car.

I at once pulled up, and went to the assistance of the lad, and picked him up and had him conveyed at once to Dr. Maxwell’s surgery, at Frankston, where he was examined by Dr. Maxwell.

At the time of the accident I was travelling at the rate of about 15 miles an hour. At that time the only other vehicle on the road was a motor lorry, which was some distance behind, travelling in the same direction, the driver of which stopped and rendered assistance.

Dr. Charles Maxwell, duly qualified medical practitioner, residing at Frankston, said:

On the evening of the 25th of February, at about 7.30pm, I was called to the surgery, and there saw the body of the child Alexander Douglas Aitchison in the arms of Alexander Waddell Fergusson. The child was dead. There were very severe injuries to the head. Death would probably occur in a few minutes, owing to the severe nature of the injuries to the head and shock and neuro-paralysis.

After hearing the evidence the Coroner found that the deceased died from injuries caused by being struck by a motor car, and that death was due to misadventure. No blame was attached to the driver of the car.

***

ON Sunday last the public were again subjected to great inconvenience by the failure of the electric light.

The churches were amongst those

who suffered most. At St. Paul’s Church, where they depend solely upon the electric light, they had to have recourse to candles.

However, at the Methodist Church, they were a little better circumstanced, having gas to fall back on.

On this occasion, however, the fault was not local, as the current had been shut off from 7am until 8.10pm, from some cause, in Melbourne.

We understand that Dandenong and other towns were similarly circumstanced. ***

WE understand that Mr. Ben Baxter, who was playing in the test match on Wednesday last, should really not have been playing that day, having received an injury to one of his legs, the sinews of which had been badly strained, on the previous Saturday.

From personal experience we know this to be a most painful injury, and trust that it will soon be quite all right again. ***

Letter to the Editor

The Moorooduc Quarry - a mountain of stone badly managed Sir,

This quarry has had a run of about four years, and has resulted in a loss of £16,000.

The engine has done its part, and it is now getting worn out. It earned nothing for repairs. The jaws of the crusher are getting worn, and so are the jaws of the ratepayers, asking when will the profit come.

The elevator takes another turn, and the wind blows through the screen. That is what has happened to one of the best situated quarries in Victoria.

From the opening of that quarry, it should have shown no loss. The machinery was in good working order. All along the line it has been badly managed, and extra, badly managed.

If such was not the case, it could not have shown a loss of £16,000.

I have a lifetime’s experience to guide me, therefore I feel safe when I say, that the same quarry should not be called a white elephant, but under good management, a gold mine.

One of the best investments ever the Council had. The stone has a sure sale, and no prospecting to find it.

Yet all the while the ratepayers are putting their hands deeply into their pockets to find a few more pounds to carry it along.

I fearlessly say to them, there is a profit of £10 per day to be got after certain alterations, and £15 per day by the end of six to eight months.

Now, I consider the present plant would be earning all it could but by gravitation, a large receiving bin, a loop line, and large orders for stone, £25 to £50 per day is there.

All stone to be sold at 7/- per yard, on the railway trucks, at Moorooduc quarry siding. I predicted from the start of that quarry it would be a failure, and to date it has proved it.

With the same experience behind it can predict it to be turned from a white elephant to a profitable quarry, and the ratepayers will not be asked more of it, as they are today.

I am, etc.,

GEO. NELSON.

Baxter, February 25.

Seven locals remain in Oz Cup

SOCCER

SEVEN out of 14 local clubs remain in the 2024 Australia Cup after last weekend’s second preliminary round.

The early stages of the prestigious national competition are regionalised along federation jurisdictions with Victoria using the Dockerty Cup name for its knockout rounds until ALeague clubs enter the fray.

Mornington, Peninsula Strikers and Skye United enter the knockout tournament at the next stage joining the survivors from round two – Frankston Pines, Chelsea and Mount Eliza. Langwarrin enters the Cup at the fourth round stage.

In last weekend’s Cup action Pines came back from a two-goal deficit to overhaul Diamond Valley 3-2 thanks to an Ardi Ahmeti hat-trick, teenager Tully Baker scored the winner in Mount Eliza’s 3-2 victory over Kings Domain while Chelsea had a comfortable 3-1 win over Heidelberg Eagles. Here are last weekend’s Dockerty Cup results:

Chelsea 3 (James Stinson, Luke D’Alessandro, Nathan Boccari) Heidelberg Eagles 1; Somerville Eagles 3 (Josh Simmons, Conor Mcfall, Marcus Anastasiou) Waverley Wanderers 6; Baxter 1 (Sava Baledrokadroka) Point Cook 4; Diamond Valley 2 Frankston Pines 3 (Ardi Ahmeti 3); Kings Domain 2 Mount Eliza 3 (Callum Drysdale, Nickel Chand, Tully Baker).

Here is the draw for round 3 of the Dockerty Cup:

Lalor Utd v Peninsula Strikers, Chelsea v Mount Eliza, Skye Utd v Fawkner/Templestowe Wolves, Mazenod v Mornington, FC Clifton Hill v Frankston Pines.

These ties must be played between Thursday 7 March and Tuesday 12 March and clubs were arranging venues, dates and kick-off times as we went to press.

In VPL1 news Langwarrin’s 2-1 win over North Geelong at Lawton Park on Saturday evening ensured that the home side stays in the top four and the visitors remain anchored to the foot of the table.

Brad Blumenthal couldn’t convert early chances before a downward Luke Adams header from a corner in the 21st minute was knocked in by Archie Macphee from point-blank range.

Langy’s lead lasted just 11 minutes.

North Geelong keeper Vinith Murugamoorthy launched a long ball downfield to Sergio Escudero who

was in a one-on-one with Adams.

Escudero out-positioned the defender and neatly lobbed the ball over Langy keeper James Burgess who was in no man’s land and suddenly it was 1-1.

Ten minutes into the second half Blumenthal was tripped inside the area and Youngs converted from the spot.

But North Geelong pressed hard for an equaliser and in the 95th minute Langy’s six-yard box resembled a pinball machine.

However Langwarrin prevailed to earn a seventh point from its first three fixtures.

It was an important result as the local club now starts a run of six away games in a row and will confront Caroline Springs George Cross, Melbourne City, Werribee City, Brunswick City, Kingston City and Bulleen.

It returns to Lawton Park on Saturday 20 April for its round 10 clash with Melbourne Victory.

Brothers Bareth and Rahul Suresh will miss the Brunswick City fixture after being called up by the Sri Lankan national team for a Four Nations Tournament in Colombo at the end of March.

In State 1 news there has been a coaching change at Mornington.

Former Beaumaris coach Christian Liberona is the new reserves coach at

Dallas Brooks Park.

He takes over from Craig Davidson and assistant Mitch Ball.

“We felt a change was needed to move the club forward,” Mornington president Matt Cameron said.

“Craig and Mitch both leave with our best wishes for their future.”

In State 3 news former Mount Eliza player-coach Bryce Ruthven has turned his back on Frankston Pines and signed with State 3 rival Heatherton United.

“I was training with both Pines and Heatherton since November and played in the Wallace Cup with Pines and in another friendly but decided to sign with Heatherton instead.

“I definitely think Heatherton has a squad that will challenge for promotion, plus the way the club runs is super professional.”

In State 5 following the return to action of scoring legend Dave Greening at Rosebud comes news that he has been joined on the training track by ex-partner in crime Mark Pagliarulo.

That gives Rosebud the possibility of fielding the oldest three-pronged attack on the peninsula featuring 42-year-old Greening, 39-year-old Pagliarulo and the “baby” of the bunch in 31-year-old Nathan Yule.

A fan from a rival club cheekily suggested the shire council consider changing the name of Rosebud’s home ground from Olympic Park to

Cup run continues: Luke D’Alessandro (left) and James Stinson were on target for Chelsea as the local outfit sent Heidelberg Eagles out of the Australia Cup last Saturday. Pictures: Jordan Martin

Jurassic Park.

Greening and “Pags” were integral to Somerville Eagles’ 2019 championship success and the latter claims that Rosebud fans will see an improved version of the veteran Scottish striker.

“I’ve dropped 10 kilograms since I hit the gym and I’ve been running and I’ve stopped drinking,” he said.

“It’s funny that it’s taken me till the end of my career to look after my body and look after myself both mentally and physically.

“I genuinely feel the best I’ve felt since I moved here eight years ago and I’ve finally realised I can’t just drink and party in the sun.

“I’ve never felt this excited to get playing in years.”

In Football Victoria news its competitions department has presented a submission to the board regarding the impact on Victoria’s National Premier League set-up of a planned second-tier national competition.

At this stage the new national competition is set to kick-off next year involving three Victorian clubs – South Melbourne, Avondale and Preston Lions.

Competitions is recommending that all three retain their NPL status but are relegated to VPL2, the third level of club competition after NPL and VPL1.

That means that three teams are

likely to be promoted from VPL1 to NPL at the end of the current season.

That opens up the possibility of Langwarrin becoming only the second club from the peninsula to play at the highest level of competition in the state.

Here are the results of some friendlies involving local clubs:

Baxter 4 (Tom Hawkins, Izaak Barr, Aaran Currie, Sava Baledrokadroka) Mount Martha 1 (Dan Bancroft); Mornington 4 (Rhys Craigie 2, Carlos Abboud, Sam Orritt) Knox City 0; Peninsula Strikers 0 Clifton Hill 0; Ringwood City 4 Skye Utd 4 (Marcus Collier, Keita Ioka, triallist, George Jeffs); Seaford Utd 2 (Ayuen Leuth, Wisey Barakzoi) Mentone 1 (Chris Gibson); Aspendale 4 (Ryan Mravljak 2, Jared Kilmartin, Pablo Borboa) Melbourne Uni 2.
