THE GRAND MEAL DEAL

SMOKERS flicking lit cigarette butts from their cars are those most frequently fined each year by the Environment Protection Authority Victoria – especially on the Mornington Peninsula. They are among thousands fined for general littering: Last year, the EPA issued 12,984 litter infringement notices state-wide. Over a four-year period, nearly 1000 fines were issued on the Mornington Peninsula. As the summer tourism season approaches, the Mornington Peninsula will host thousands of day trippers and holiday makers at its many attractions. But, EPA statistics show that it’s also the season for litterbugs with an increase in reports over December and January. “We see a significant increase in litter reports as summer arrives on the peninsula,” EPA southern metro manager Steve Lansdell said. “This summer we want to make sure the message gets across loud and clear; littering is not on. What is thrown on our streets can end up in our bay and do tremendous environmental damage. “If you see someone littering please let EPA or council know, especially if it’s a lit cigarette thrown from a car causing a fire hazard. EPA can issue a fine of up to $645. If the matter goes to court and is unsuccessfully challenged, magistrates usually take a very dim view with significant fines being imposed. “One case in Broadmeadows earned the culprits $2400 in fines and $3500 in costs.” But it’s not just those flicking their butts out the window who are doing damage to the peninsula reserves and

foreshore. “We’ve also recently investigated reports of illegally dumped waste at public parks at Hastings and dumped excavation material at Baxter,” Mr Lansdell said. “It’s disappointing that people show such disregard for this beautiful part of the world. Everyone knows not to drop litter. We learn that as soon as we start school, and everyone certainly knows they shouldn’t drive into public parkland and dump their old lounges, TVs and used baby nappies. “Unfortunately, identifying the people is often difficult without witnesses. “As we come into summer we want the community to stay vigilant, take photos if it’s safe, and report what they’ve seen by calling 1300 372 842. The fire risk this season is high and everyone can help by reporting litterers and cigarette throwers. “To make a litter infringement stick, we need the car’s details, including registration number if a car was involved, and details about where and when the incident occurred. If we don’t know about the offence EPA can’t act. The public is our best eyes and ears.” The mayor Cr David Gill said the peninsula’s wildlife was at particular risk. “Illegal dumping poses a serious threat to our wildlife and can lead to contamination of land, waterways and groundwater,” Cr Gill said. “There are plenty of ways to do the right thing with a long list of items able to be disposed of for little or no cost at our resource recovery centres. “It’s not hard to do the right thing: anyone who isn’t able to get to the centre can use their rates vouchers to book a kerbside collection.” More information about EPA Victoria’s litter reporting program is available on epa.vic.gov.au

Two Libs home, one sweats on final count By Stephen Taylor and Keith Platt SATURDAY’S state election has signalled to the Liberal party that it cannot always count on holding the three seats covering the Mornington Peninsula. While it has retained two seats – Mornington and Hastings – Nepean remains undecided. All three may be within Labor’s grasp next time around and doubts are being voiced over the Liberals’ ability to retain the seat of Flinders in the federal election that must be held by May next year. Flinders is held by Greg Hunt, one of leading figures in the leadership crisis that saw Scott Morrison eventually succeed Malcolm Turnbull as prime minister. The previously safe Liberal seat of Nepean held by retiring MP Martin Dixon since 2002 being sought by Liberal candidate Russell Joseph was too close to call yesterday (Monday) following Labor’s landslide election win. Mr Joseph was Mr Dixon’s office manager. As vote counting continued yesterday morning Mr Joseph and Labor’s Chris Brayne were neck and neck, with Mr Brayne on 17,441 votes (50.95 per cent of two-candidate preferred votes) and Mr Joseph 16,789. Meanwhile, the neighbouring Liberal seat of Mornington was easily retained by incumbent David Morris, albeit with a reduced majority. Mr Morris was on 19,010 votes after 51.20 per cent of the vote was counted – well ahead of ALP candidate Ryan White on 15,427 votes

(44.80 per cent). While Mr Morris’s win was solid, it should be remembered that Mr White was virtually unknown in the seat. Mr Morris has held Mornington since 2006 and was re-elected in 2010, 2014 and 2018. An anxious Mr Joseph said yesterday the result was still “too close to call” and that he would wait until all votes were counted on Wednesday, taking solace from the fact he had had a “good bounce from pre-poll and postal voting”. He said Nepean had previously had a 7.6 per cent margin on a two-party preferred basis, but that this was insufficient to withstand “the Labor tsunami that swept across Victoria” giving the ALP its second term in office. “That margin was not strong and I

never took my position for granted,” Mr Joseph said. “I had some good policies and achievements, such as the [proposed recycled] water pipeline scheme and the Jetty Road overpass to my credit, whereas Labor and the Greens didn’t even have one policy down here.” Mr Joseph alluded to “external issues”, such as the ousting of former PM Malcolm Turnbull, as having a “greater impact down here than elsewhere”. The ALP’s Chris Brayne, who lives at Balnarring, said he was “very pleased with the result in Nepean”. “It was a resounding endorsement of the policies of the Andrews government,” he said. “People on the Mornington Peninsula want to see investments in schools, hospitals, roads and rail. “We expect the result to be decided by just a small number of votes, so a result may not be known for some days still. “Every voter in Nepean deserves to have their voice heard.” Mr Brayne, who writes sit-com pilot scripts and works at Dromana drive-in on weekends, said the “significant swing to Labor was indicative of the hard work my team and I put into the campaign … over the course of this year”. “We did what we could with little resources, but it is clear that the message from myself and the Andrews Labor government resonated with this community.” Prophetically, in his candidate statement to The News two weeks ago, Mr

Brayne said: “Imagine a day where the peninsula was on a knife edge every election leading to both parties focusing more heavily on our area.” On the weekend he got his wish. Over at Hastings, sitting Liberal Neale Burgess was looking more comfortable despite saying: “In our local electorate things are still too close to call, with 30 per cent of the vote still to be counted and recounts to follow.” But, with 18,127 two-candidate preferred votes in hand compared to the ALP’s Simon Meyer’s 16,685 votes, Mr Burgess should be home and hosed. He was sitting on 52.07 per cent of the vote on a two-candidate basis compared to Mr Meyer’s 47.93 per cent. On Monday Mr Burgess said: “Victorians spoke loudly and clearly on Saturday and, as always when our community speaks, I listen. He congratulated the Andrews Labor government for “being given the honour of governing our great state for another four years”. “I am hopeful that our local community will see fit to again give me the great honour of serving them. If so, I will continue to represent each and every one of them to the very best of my ability.” Mr Morris on Monday said he was “grateful” to voters in his electorate, but that it was “too early to analyse what went wrong for the Liberals across the state”. He said the result was “pretty disappointing”, with the ongoing ructions and change of leadership in the

federal Liberal/National government “being an element, but not the major factor” in the lack of voter support. Mr Morris would not comment on how voter disenchantment with the federal government might affect the re-election chances of Flinders MP Greg Hunt. Mr Hunt was one of senior ministers who stood alongside Home Affairs Minister Peter Dutton in the split that ultimately led to the resignation of then Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull. Mr Morris said that during the election campaign he had not seen any indications of a major swing against the Liberals. “We were an incredibly unified team, but that was not the same in Canberra,” he said. “I haven’t had time to process [the result] yet, but I didn’t really get a feeling [in the campaign] that anything was different this time. “I wasn’t expecting a swing either way or, at the most, thought we might take a one or two per cent haircut. “On Friday [the day before Saturday’s election] I received an email from a 50-year-old woman saying she had voted Liberal all her life but could not do it this time.” Mr Morris believes the federal problems account for “less than one third of the swing against us”. He said he “gets on well” with John Presutto (Hawthorn) and Michael O’Brien (Hawthorn) the two main contenders for leadership of the Liberals in parliament if Matthew Guy decides not to stand. “They’ve both got what it takes to lead the party.”

Fearful caller left to fend for himself Stephen Taylor steve@mpnews.com.au MORNINGTON police have promised to “follow up” after a 65-year-old man – recently released from hospital – was allegedly threatened, abused, harassed and intimidated while taking a stroll in Tanti Park last week. Charles Smith*, who is in a weakened state while recovering from cardiac surgery, is so fearful after the frightening incident that The News will not reveal his real name. About 6pm, Monday 12 November, Mr Smith was on his daily walk and admiring colourful plants in a front yard of a court-side house when he was accosted by the resident who demanded: “What are you doing nosing around MY court, ya big bastard?” Mr Smith attempted to explain that he was just out walking and admiring the garden but the intimidation escalated, even while he attempted to diffuse the situation by explaining his poor health condition – to no avail. He was told: “Boo hoo. I’ll get rid of those scars for ever – I’ll bloody kill ya!” Two neighbours arrived and the threats continued: “You’d better get outta here before he kills ya!” one reportedly said. Fearing for his life, Mr Smith started walking from the court and dialled 000, hoping to be connected to Mornington police who – he hoped – would arrive quickly. Just then the first man returned with a camera which he “shoved” in Mr

Smith’s face while attempting to take his picture. All the while the threats, jeering and abuse continued. “Go ahead, call the police. They won’t come. I shot up Frankston police station once and they didn’t come…” Mr Smith’s partner, who was “disgusted” with the men’s actions, said

the abuser even yelled out his address “loud enough for police on the other end of the line to hear”. “Needless to say, the [police] would have heard my partner’s distress as well,” she said. “He pleaded for them to come …” But they didn’t. Inexplicably for a

man fearing for his life, Mornington police did nothing other than transfer the call to the ambulance service, who arrived soon after. “The paramedics brought him home a broken man,” his partner said. “They came in to let me know what had happened and to collect his clothing and medical history. We spent seven hours in the emergency rooms of the Frankston Hospital before he was able to come home.” The next day Mr Smith’s partner personally reported the incident at Mornington police and relayed their disappointment at the lack of response – but was “fobbed off”. “I didn’t even get an apology,” she said. She was told there had been only one van available that evening and it had been tied up at an incident right outside the police station. “Why did they need a van?” she asked. “What could have been so bad that they needed a van’s presence for more than two hours right outside the police station?” A second visit to Mornington police was fruitful, with senior police “more sympathetic and understanding”. Mr Smith was offered counselling which he accepted even though he was “getting agitated and anxious simply by revisiting the incident in his own mind”. “Our major concerns here are not only the lack of a physical [police] response but their attitudes,” his partner said. “There was no explanation for their inability to respond, no concern for

his welfare [initially] and no apologies made. “My partner was transferred to the ambulance service without warning and without mention of a police presence on its way. “They tried to fob me off, denying my partner was on a call to the local [Mornington] police during the incident, insisting that he must have been talking to the call centre. “They could have potentially had a death on their hands. What would the ramifications of that have been?” For the past two weeks The News has been reporting on community concerns of a possible shortage of police officers and resources on the Mornington Peninsula in the lead up to summer. Senior police deny there is a numbers or equipment “crisis” but incidents like this stretch the credibility of that claim. Mr Smith’s partner pleaded: “We need a bigger police presence in our community with training in dealing honestly and fairly with the public.” Senior Sergeant Jeremy Michau, of Mornington police, said police would start “knocking on doors” in the Tanti Park court to establish a base for possible charges. “We will speak to the neighbours and, hopefully, they will assist us,” he said. The [alleged abuser] needs to know that we are aware of the incident and that we are investigating. “After speaking with Mr Smith I’ve no doubt that there was an altercation.” (*not his real name)

From full house to off-limits: The busy Rye boat ramp during last year’s snapper season and, above, now closed for refurbishment. Pictures: Yanni

Match us on ramp funding or no deal, says shire Stephen Taylor steve@mpnews.com.au THE state government would have to guarantee the same level of financial support and maintenance of Mornington Peninsula’s six public boat ramps as was provided by the council or any change to their management would not be supported. This comment comes as Mornington Peninsula Shire reels from a blast by the Futurefish Foundation slamming the standard of its boat ramps. (“Peninsula boat ramps in disarray, says fishing body The News 6/11/18). The shire has six ramps: Five on Port Phillip at Schnapper Point,

Fishermans Beach, Safety Beach, Rye and Sorrento, and one at Hastings. Two sand ramps at Mt Martha and Flinders can be used by tractors and four-wheel-drives only. Other ramps include Tootgarook (managed by the Capel Sound foreshore committee) and Flinders (run by Parks Victoria). The foundation’s David Kramer – critical that several of the ramps were either being reconstructed or were otherwise unfit for the start of the annual snapper run – said it was “time for the management of all the peninsula’s boat ramps to be brought under one single boat ramp authority”. He called on the major political parties to “remove the management of boat ramps away from the Morning-

ton Peninsula Shire, as well as the multitude of committees of management, which ‘claim to look after the smaller boat ramps’”. The Premier Daniel Andrews also weighed in, saying that, if re-elected, he would abolish all boat ramp parking and launching fees and establish a Better Boating Fund for boat ramp upgrades – effectively taking the responsibility for ramp maintenance away from local councils. Mornington Peninsula Shire has hit back saying it is “committed to the boat ramps”. The mayor Cr David Gill said without a “local focus on boat ramp maintenance” the ramps would suffer. “On average, Mornington Peninsula Shire spends $250,000 on boat ramp

maintenance annually,” he said. “We conduct annual condition assessments on all ramps which enables the shire to program necessary repairs. “All ramps are inspected throughout the year allowing us to identify issues for rectification. As well, daily inspections during peak periods on high demand ramps ensure the prompt removal of sand that may impact the safe use of the ramps.” He said capital works, such as the Rye boat ramp upgrade, were an additional “investment” by the shire. The works, to be completed on 30 November, include reconstruction of the three existing boat ramps and an extra ramp, new jetty and realignment of reversing lanes.

“The shire committed $648,000 towards this project in its 2016-17 financial budget, in addition to funding from the Department of Environment, Land, Water and Planning’s boating safety and facilities program grant of $588,000,” Cr Gill said. “The … additional lane will reduce peak wait times for boat launching and retrieval from 51 down to 16 minutes.” Daily fees of $14 go towards ongoing maintenance of all ramps, he said. The shire’s financial contribution to boat ramps and jetties 2018-19 was $420,000; 2017-18 ($200,000); 2016-17 ($100,000) and 2015-16 ($300,000).

27 November 2018


Review identifies ‘pressure points’ Stephen Taylor steve@mpnews.com.au STATE government decisions have been identified in a shire planning scheme review as the major threat to the effectiveness of the Mornington Peninsula Planning Scheme. The scheme, which began in May 1999 – two years after the amalgamation of the shires of Flinders, Hastings and Mornington – aims to allow Mornington Peninsula Shire to be more strategic and streamlined in responding to the peninsula’s special planning needs. It was described by new mayor Cr David Gill as “one of the most important documents developed by the council as it provides the foundation for the preservation of the unique environment of the Mornington Peninsula for future generations”. The scheme is regarded as having been effective in preserving the peninsula’s Green Wedge rural environment, the interface with townships, and the coastal villages. Now a review of the scheme – which was recently adopted by Mornington Peninsula Shire Council – has identified future planning “pressure points”. The most damaging was identified as the state government’s decision “without any notice” to change the peninsula’s planning regulations “to allow 24,000 housing sites (25 per cent of housing in Mornington Peninsula Shire) the automatic right to build new or renovate existing homes into three storey ‘McMansion-style’ homes in low scale developed townships and coastal villages,” Cr Gill said. “The review of the [planning scheme] should provide all sides of politics with an urgency to reset the Department of Planning’s approach which, ultimately, will destroy the environmental fabric of the peninsula for future generations.” Cr Gill said: “Currently planning policies

designed for Melbourne and developing inner and outer suburbs are dumped on the environmentally sensitive Green Wedge and small-scale villages. “This has now been compounded by Planning Minister Richard Wynne’s decision, made three days before the government entered caretaker mode, to sign off on another major change allowing six storey aged care facilities to be built in residential areas of townships and coastal villages. “These changes to the local planning laws will increasingly encourage multi-unit development with even greater impact on vegetation, road congestion and lowering of existing residential amenity and environment – the very reason people chose to make the Mornington Peninsula their home. “Villages and townships … impacted by the government’s change of local planning laws include Capel Sound, Rosebud, Dromana, Mt Martha, Mornington, Baxter, Somerville, Tyabb, Hastings and Bittern.” Cr Gill said threats to the planning scheme had also been exacerbated by Mr Wynne’s decision to “remove from the normal council planning processes [and] limit council’s and the community’s comment” on the massive Kaufland retail development proposed for the corner of Oakbank Road and Nepean Highway – outside the Mornington commercial precinct. “The community … should understand that the massive population growth in Melbourne is now poised to increase development pressure on the Mornington Peninsula and its townships, coastal villages and Green Wedge rural areas,” he said. “This is a situation which clearly focuses on the importance of the Mornington Peninsula Planning Scheme Review 2018.” Cr Kate Roper, who chairs the planning services committee, said: “We strive to protect our townships from inappropriate development that is inconsistent with the unique low-scale character of our shire.”

O’Brien Foundation gives pupils two-wheel freedom FUNDRAISING efforts by the Pesky Peddlers riding club within O’Brien Real Estate has given 10 Dromana Specialist School pupils the thrill of owning their own bikes. The Pesky Peddlers challenged themselves to ride the 210km Around the Bay last month and, with the support of other staff and their network, raised the money to buy the bikes – the children’s first. O’Brien Real Estate’s Jason Mudford said the cycling club was set up to boost “comradery and fitness”. “Being competitive by nature we set ourselves the challenge and thought it would be a great idea to raise money to help disadvantaged kids get their first bike. A bike is one of the greatest

freedoms and escapes kids can have.” Using the Variety Vic Bikes For Kids program the O’Brien Foundation was able to arrange helmets and locks for the bikes. Mr Mudford said the program provided freedom, independence and joy to disadvantaged children by providing bikes. “It’s such a simple gift but it ultimately changes a child’s life,” he said. He said O’Brien Real Estate was a strong supporter of communities and staff “loved seeing the positive impacts our sponsorships have on our local communities and we believe that giving back is extremely important”.

Art show snares leading artist MORNINGTON Art Show will feature leading Australian artist David Brayshaw in its 47th art show to run 18-26 January. Brayshaw is listed by the Kevin Hills Gallery in Sydney as one of Australia’s top-10 artists. A professional artist since 1982, and working in oils and mixed media, Brayshaw is well known across Australia with solo and group exhibitions. He has also exhibited in Hong Kong, Singapore, Dubai and the US. He is renowned for his coastal, Great Barrier Reef and alpine paintings. Captivated by the sublime landscapes of Mt Kosciuszko and the Victorian Alps, his alpine paintings have featured in many Melbourne and Sydney exhibitions. Moving to the South coast of NSW in 1990 provided his greatest inspiration – from the ocean. A focus on coastal themes has led to strong local and international markets for his work. Brayshaw is included in many Australian private, corporate and institutional collections, including the Commonwealth Artbank. He has won more than 30 art awards, including the prestigious Fredrick McCubbin Gold Medal award. He is a Fellow of the Australian Institute of History and Art. ( FAIHA) Mornington Art Show is proud to feature Brayshaw’s work in its mid-January exhibition. It is expected that more than 850 paintings and photographs will be displayed. Opening night tickets for Thursday 17 January will be available online at Mornington Art Show or at Farrell’s Book store from 1 December. “Already the quality of entries being submitted is of a very high standard,” art show chair Victor Sullivan said.

Surfer may be honoured for Pt Leo rescue Stephen Taylor steve@mpnews.com.au THE rescue of a young woman overcome with exhaustion while surfing off Pt Leo may see her rescuer honoured for bravery. Novice surfer Justine Fullarton, 19, who was on holiday from Queensland, was 250 metres from shore at the “Mystery Left” break with a male friend, Tuesday 11 September, during a day of high off-shore winds and strong currents. Becoming fatigued they separated and her friend, also 19, was able to return to shore. Ms Fullarton, who said her “arms went dead” after paddling frantically, could only manage to hang onto her board as the currents swept her further out to sea. Police and other volunteers alerted by her friends were by this stage on the beach mapping out a rescue plan, with the Air Wing and volunteer marine rescue crews on their way. Each rescue scenario they came up with presented difficulties – not the least being Ms Fullarton’s probable inability to help herself due to her physical state. “We didn’t realise the strength of the currents until it was too late,” she said later. “No matter how hard I tried I was getting pushed further out and the people on shore were getting smaller and smaller.” After being in the water 40 minutes to an hour, Ms Fullarton was exhausted. “I was becoming paranoid,” she said. “I hardly ever go in the water and I was starting to become scared of sharks. I just wanted to be with the

people on shore.” Just then, Balnarring man Keiran Kellett, 41, who had seen an ambulance and police cars in the life saving club car park, approached police and offered to bring the surfer in. As he paddled out a stern police voice behind him warned: “We are not advising you to do anything,” but he was by then intent only on the rescue. “She was just a speck in the dis-

tance at the beginning and the first thing I noticed was that she couldn’t even lift her head she was so tired,” Mr Kellett said. “I never saw her face the entire time. “My first instinct was to make her calm; I said not to move and that I was going to turn her around and push her in. She was exhausted and there was no reaction; maybe she was suffering from hypothermia by then.”

■ ■ ■ ■ ■

With the police chopper hovering overhead, gauging what state she was in, Mr Kellett slowly pushed the inert figure shoreward. “I was praying she didn’t fall off because if she had we would have been in big trouble,” he recalled. “I don’t think I would have been able to get her back on her board. It was a dire situation and could have ended in a fatality.”

Fortunately, the young woman kept still and, when the shore was only metres away, was grasped by eager hands which pulled her to safety. Ms Fullarton suffering hypothermia was rushed by ambulance to Frankston Hospital for treatment. Although the episode is now just “an unpleasant memory”, Ms Fullerton is naturally full of praise for her ‘life saver’: “I would really like to meet him and say a huge thank you,” she said. Leading Senior Constable Daniel Crisp said police were notified that a young female surfer had become exhausted battling a rip at Pt Leo and was stuck about 150 metres from the shore. “While coordinating resources, including the Police Air Wing and Ambulance Victoria, we were approached by local surfer “Kieran”,” he said. “Kieran, without hesitation, entered the water and paddled out to the young female and assisted her return to the shore where she was assessed by paramedics. “We were extremely impressed by the selfless actions Kieran showed to help someone in need.” Leading Senior Constable Crisp said that, with the summer period quickly approaching, the rescue serves as a timely reminder to always research local conditions prior to going out. Hastings police Sergeant John Cannon said he had contacted Life Saving Victoria to praise Mr Kellett’s efforts and recommend he be awarded a medal for his bravery. He was waiting to hear back last week.

Minister ‘shows contempt’ over Kaufland bid, says group Stephen Taylor steve@mpnews.com.au STATE planning minister Richard Wynne had “shown contempt” for Mornington Peninsula Shire residents over the proposed Kaufland supermarket development, the Mornington Environment Association says. The group’s president Margaret Howden said the minister had disregarded the “community’s rights and responsibilities in determining what we believe are shire-appropriate developments for us”. The German giant has earmarked a site next to the Bata factory on the corner of Nepean Highway and Oakbank Road for a 4000 square metre “hypermart” which is outside the town’s retail precinct. (See Super store could ‘destroy’ gateway The News 5/11/18). Mr Wynne has appointed an advisory committee to assess the planning application – effectively removing it from the checks and balances of the shire’s planning process. “The [shire’s] planning controls have been developed by the community members of Mornington,” Ms Howden said. “The [Kaufland] proposal, on the edge of our Green Belt, will degrade that which the Labor Government and the shire have sworn to protect. “The gigantic structure will apparently be surrounded by 430 carparks, with signage 20 metres high and 60 metres long. It will predominantly and permanently dominate the green gateway skyline. “We call on all ratepayers to stand up and support the shire by objecting to this proposal.” Kaufland spokesperson Didem Brennan said the advisory committee process initiated by Mr Wynne was “legitimate, transparent and accountable and encourages public engagement”. “Under Section 151 of the Planning and Environment Act 1987 Kaufland is allowed to seek planning approvals from the responsible minister to which any interested party can make

a submission and seek to appear in front of an independent panel of experts,” he said. “Kaufland is making significant investment and employment decisions which require a degree of certainty that a traditional planning pathway through six individual councils could not provide. “Cases such as Kaufland’s, in which certainty is needed across multiple sites at one time, are one of the reasons such a panel process exists.” Mr Brennan said the company – which oper-

ates mainly in Europe – hoped to be “a part of the community for the long term”. “Regardless of the prescribed planning process, Kaufland will continue to engage with local councils in whose communities we are seeking to invest,” he said. “We look forward to engaging further with community organisations and business groups as we continue on our path towards store openings.”

fun filled era than the foreshore with its long history of being a great place to enjoy the summer holidays and laid-back lifestyle. The event was organised by Rosebud Chamber of Commerce which partnered with peninsula-based organisations. Profits went back to not-for-profit organisations. Our photographer Yanni spent the weekend capturing the sights and sounds of the event.

ROSEBUD came alive to the fun of the 1950s and 60s last week at the 2018 Foreshore RockFest. The revolution in music, dancing, cars, movies, television, fashion and magazines from these two decades continues to be enjoyed by millions around the world – and especially at Rosebud. So, what better place to revive and enjoy the

Maryke’s performance above par MT MARTHA Public Golf Course’s Maryke Scott came very close to winning a trip for two to the British Open next year. And, although she didn’t quite make the grade, the challenge of playing consistently well and advancing through progressively tougher rounds towards the final proved rewarding. Scott’s journey began on 20 September when she qualified for the Peninsula District Final of the National Play 9s Competition by winning at Mt Martha. She then won the District Final at Devilbend on 28 October to qualify for the State Final at Royal Melbourne Golf Club. Although she finished second on a countback at this event, her solid scores earned her an invitation to compete in the national finals at The Lakes, Sydney, after the third round of the Australian Men’s Open Championship, Saturday 17 November. Playing off a handicap of 33 on the highrating Sydney course, Scott competed against 11 other women and 12 men with the top two from 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 ........................ $4.40mt Merbau 90x19 Random ........................ $6.50mt Merbau 140x22 Random .................... $13.95mt

each section winning a trip for two to the 2019 British Open being held at Royal Portrush Golf Club, Northern Ireland. Although she didn’t win she took solace in being a member of the winning Victorian team in which the best three scores are added together to find a winner. Her prize was a framed photograph of herself on the famed Lakes layout. Assessing the course, she said it was made more difficult by “lots of water and lots of bunkers and many undulations”. “Luckily, we played the front nine which was easier,” she quipped. Mt Martha Public Golf Course’s Friday night nine-hole competition is popular. The pro shop supplies a sausage sizzle – and golf – for $15. Players can tee off at 6pm and be back in the clubhouse for the “chook raffle” by 9pm. “Playing nine holes is do-able,” Scott said. “Everyone brings their own drinks and barbecue and we have a ball. We try and encourage people to have a go.”

RYE father and daughter Jim and Anna McCauley are carving some special memories as they work alongside each other on the southern peninsula’s newest attraction – Sand Sculpting Australia presents Peter Pan. They have joined 13 other awardwinning international and Australian sand sculptors as they intricately carve 3500 tonnes of sand into Peter Pan themed artworks along the wetlands and garden pathways of Boneo Maze. Jim has been involved with the sand sculpting movement on the peninsula from the beginning. In 2000 he approached the Rye Action Group with the idea of a sand sculpture exhibition and competition on the Rye Foreshore. Jim was involved with enticing the world champion, American Kevin Crawford, to Rye and establishing an event that has offered a long-standing connection for many families. The event attracted the support of Vic Health, Mornington Peninsula Tourism, and Vision Australia, who ran it for many years. Jim was so inspired by the sand sculptors he met that he decided to learn the craft himself. “I feel as if I’m the longest apprenticed sand sculptor ever,” he said. “Each time I return I learn new skills from other experts. Before that I’d only ever built sand castles on the beach. I started off helping with the basics, like windows and doors, and then I became more and more confident. Before I knew it, I was designing and working on my own sand installations.”

Talented daughter Anna, 26, was urged to enter the event’s summer sand castle competitions before continuing on to explore arts at Rosebud Secondary College and study at Frankston TAFE. Since graduating Anna has travelled Australia designing and sculpting her own installations in sand and other mediums. Sand Sculpting Australia’s return to the southern peninsula is like a homecoming for Jim and Anna, who lives in Alice Springs where she works in an art gallery while creating her own red-earth sand sculptures. The two have been working alongside each other sculpting the pirates’ lair of Skull Island and adding touches to Peter Pan and Captain Hook. These four-metre-high sculptures will take up to two weeks to complete. “When that last grain of sand falls into place, it’s a sense of relief that the piece is done. And you can just step back and enjoy it,” Jim said. Reflecting on what makes sand sculptures so special, Anna said: “Sand is very tactile, it’s such a lovely material to work with and the results speak to so many. While other art forms can be exclusive, everyone has some form of connection with sand sculptures. “An eight-year-old and an 80-yearold can both be just as curious and delighted as each other when they see the sand sculptures” adds Jim. Sand Sculpting Australia at Boneo Maze will open from 15 December and run though until 28 January. Friday night Big Kids Can Play wine and dine packages also available. Visit sandculpting.com.au

Man arrested following Rosebud incident

ARMED Crime Squad detectives charged a 35-year-old Rosebud man with attempted aggravated burglary, reckless conduct endangering life, reckless conduct endangering serious injury and prohibited person in possession of a firearm following an incident at Rosebud, Thursday 22 November. Residents told police they heard a gunshot in Spray Street, 12.50am. They said a man, known to a 17-yearold girl at home at the time, had tried to force his way inside before allegedly firing a shot at the house and driving away. The girl was not injured and there was no damage to the house. The man has been remanded to appear at Melbourne Magistrates’ Court on 10 December. Anyone with information is urged to contact Crime Stoppers 1800 333 000 or submit a confidential report online at crimestoppersvic.com.au

Fire leads to crop

AN extensive fire at an industrial shed at Carrum Downs on Wednesday 14 November has been deemed nonsuspicious. Frankston CIU said an arson chemist had found that electrical fault caused the blaze in the garage of the property at 1am. It then spread onto the shed where it took hold. Seven fire trucks attended. The shed, which was used to store items for the owner’s business, contained large quantities of canola oil which fueled the blaze. The garage that initially caught fire had been rented out. No one was injured in the fire. Police searched the garage where the fire began and allegedly found four small cannabis crops. A man was helping police with their inquiries. Police said they also found a tarpaulin secured with cable ties. It allegedly contained meat chunks and bones, believed to be from an animal.

Arrest after incident

A 23-YEAR-old man escaped unharmed after allegedly being threatened with a bottle during an armed robbery in Beach Street, Frankston, 7pm, Saturday 17 November. Police said that the victim complied with demands by two men to hand over his mobile phone and cash. The

Mornington

alleged robbers were later apprehended. One was released pending further inquiries, and then rearrested early on Tuesday 20 November. A 17-year-old Frankston North youth is expected to face a children’s court at a later date and a 24-year-old Frankston man will face Melbourne Magistrates’ Court at a later date, both on armed robbery charges. Acting Detective Sergeant Luke Holmes, of Frankston CIU, praised the “excellent work by patrolling police”.

Wire-rope barriers keep car on freeway

AN elderly McCrae driver who lost control of his Toyota Landcruiser found himself perched atop the outside wire-rope barrier on the Mornington Peninsula Freeway at Mt Martha, 11am, Thursday 15 November. The 76-yearold, who was uninjured, is suspected of having a medical episode. He will undergo a medical review of his licence by VicRoads. “Are you right to drive? If in doubt, speak to your GP,” Leading Senior Constable Greg Wolfe said.

Appeal for information following Rye hit-run

POLICE are appealing for information following an alleged hit-run at Rye, Sunday 11 November. The incident allegedly occurred

after two men were escorted out of a hotel on Point Nepean Road by security staff about 9.20pm. They got into a black a Holden VF SS Commodore ute and began driving towards a noexit area. A security guard, 61, tried to stop the car from driving the wrong way as it continued rolling forward. He grabbed the driver’s side of the car, however, it accelerated and the guard fell and struck his head on the pavement. He was taken to hospital where he was in a stable condition late last week. The driver fled the scene in the ute which had a ribbed hard-top lid. One of the men was wearing a black and red checked shirt, lightcoloured pants, dark sneakers and a cap. The other wore a black beanie, white T-shirt, jeans and thongs. Anyone with information, or who recognises the men, is urged to contact Crime Stoppers 1800 333 000 or submit a confidential report online at crimestoppersvic.com.au

Grass fire

A SLASHER is believed to have started a grass fire that broke out on Sunnyside Road, Mt Eliza, Monday 19 November. A Mt Eliza CFA crew extinguished the blaze. No one was hurt.

Bingo bomb threat

A BOMB scare caused a Carrum Downs bingo hall to be evacuated,

Friday 16 November. Police are investigating a “suspicious” phone call to the Carrum Gardens Bingo Centre, on FrankstonDandenong Road, Carrum Downs, at 8pm. A male caller allegedly said a bomb hidden in the hall would detonate in 20 minutes. The building was evacuated and the Bomb Response Unit called in to sweep the area. They found no explosives.

CFA crews tackle fires

A FIRE broke out at a Hastings property, 7.40pm, Monday 19 November. CFA crews rushed to the blaze near Peninsula Link and brought it under control.

It may have been caused by a discarded cigarette butt. Another fire incident occurred when a group of Rosebud youths camping at Nations Park lit a campfire. When they awoke at 6am the fire had spread to a nearby tree. The CFA attended and put the fire out with minimal damage.

Bomb scare

THE Bomb Response Unit was called to a property in Morobe Street, Sorrento, when the resident found a potential explosive device outside, 9.40am, Friday 16 November. The bomb robot was sent in to defuse the device. Detectives from Mornington Peninsula CIU are investigating.

WHAT’S NEW...

Uniting a community with music and food By Adana Hulett NESTLED in the heart of Balnarring on the Mornington Peninsula is The Red Hill Bakery. A family-run store that provides freshly made breads, cakes and pies as well as salads and takeaway meals. On a Sunday afternoon there is no better place to be than listening to the sounds of trumpets and saxophones live; a tradition run by the bakery. Ray Johns is the face behind the name, owning the store alongside his wife Jill. Ray is a passionate and humble man who loves nothing more than music, bread and his beloved wooden boat. Born in Kew, his first job was delivering newspapers; “I loved it because I got to know everyone around town.”. When he was young, his aspirations were solely focused on music, something he continues to enjoy; “it’s my passion and my outlet.”. In 1983, Ash Wednesday burned down Ray and Jill’s Upper Beaconsfield home. Although devastated, they grasped onto the opportunity of a fresh start. For a year, they lived in Tasmania, but the threat of destructive fires continued to loom over their heads. Seeking an area with open spaces and a strong sense of community, they finally found what they were looking for: the Mornington Peninsula, a jewel between two bays. After a stint of playing music professionally 6 to 7 nights a week, Ray decided it was time for a change. He found a shop in Red Hill for sale; a single store front bakery. Jill had previously taught bread making, so they decided to take on the challenge;

Passion for music: Ray’s prized possession: his piano. Picture: Adana Hulett

something Ray is always eager to do. Slowly, they added recipes to the menu, then a new coffee machine until they bought the store next door, turning it into a café. Since then, the Red Hill Bakery has significantly grown. When Ray felt ready to expand, he felt Balnarring would “provide the biggest challenge.”. With Peninsula Link to directly connect with Balnarring Road, the “positioning and timing was perfect.”. The Balnarring store is

now well and truly a part of the community, something Ray attributes to the diversity of the bakery. “We have Sunday Jazz, a children’s play area, a gallery; something for everyone.”, he listed pointing to the beautiful local paintings and drawings on the gallery wall, proving the bakery is more than just sweet treats and bread. “We also donate to the local football club, the fire brigade and school.”, he explained with an exuberant smile, clearly loving the differences he is

able to achieve in the community. Ray’s philosophy is simple yet effective; “being able to play a tune and play it well.”, is more important than a processed song could ever be. Just like with bread, “going back to the basics, something that has succeeded for hundreds of years, is the only way to make it.”. Ray is extremely proud of their local bread, happily telling its origins as it is “all from the Peninsula, literally straight from paddock to plate.”. The stone ground

wheat they use is grown on Tuerong Farm the only Peninsula based farm to grow and mill wheat creating what Ray believes to be “the greatest breakthrough in bread making.”. When questioned on the future, Ray seems to have no thoughts on retiring; “I love my job, it’s not work to me, it’s a way of life.”. The future of the bakery is to further integrate itself into the community, creating a safe and reliable place for locals. As for Ray, his future plans include crossing Bass Straight in his adored wooden boat, a treacherous journey he has made before and thoroughly enjoyed; “it’s rough out there, but truly special.”. His continued love for music seems everlasting as he wishes to keep playing his masterpiece of a piano and participating in Sunday Jazz. With gentle humour and grand ambition, Ray and his wife Jill own not just a bakery, but the heart of Balnarring. Their desire to provide quality products is praised by their customers and the wider community. The Red Hill Bakery is quite possibly the best thing since sliced bread.

100 YEARS AGO THIS WEEK...

Private Walker gets a grand welcome home Compiled by Brodie Cowburn A GREAT surprise awaited Private Bob Walker on his arrival, in Mr Norman McDonald’s well decorated car, at the corner of Humphries and Walkers roads, on Tuesday last. A whole hearted welcome awaited him. A large arch was erected, consisting of gum, streamers and flags, and Anzac Walker’s colors crowning the whole. Nearby was a table groaning under the weight of the feast provided by the proud neighbours of the returning soldier. An extra treat was provided in a huge bowl of strawberries and cream, the former specially grown by Mrs Morgan for the occasion. It was indeed a very gay scene, in true Australian setting. The bugle calls resounded (by bugler Broomhead) and a rally, by drummer Fergusen, heralded the arrival of the car. The National anthem was played by Mr Fergusen, on the violin, Grace being sung, the splendid tea, arranged by Mrs Morgan and the Misses Broomhead, assisted by Mesdames Fergusen, Broomhead and Woods, was greatly appreciated. Cr Oates was well to the fore with a glad speech of welcome, which was ably responded to by Private Walker, after which “He’s a jolly good fellow” was sung with thorough heartedness. Mrs Walker was presented with an Australian flag, though small, the spirit of the feelings was large indeed. The happy faces of the children many of which have kept up a regular correspondence with Pte Walker,

were a delightful welcome. Should we decide at any time, to decorate our township with arches, it would be well to secure the services of Messrs Fergusen, Woods, and Syd Morgan, as well as the artistic eyes of their lady friends, why were responsible for the splendid piece of work at Humphries road. Our best wishes for a long life of happiness to Anzac and Mrs Walker *** THE general meeting of the Progress Association, which was to have been held on Friday the 22nd November, lapsed, for the want of a quorum, the secretary being the only person in attendance. *** THE Tyabb annual picnic will be held in the Tyabb Park on Saturday December 28th. *** MESSRS Alex Scott and Co Pty Ltd will hold their usual monthly sale at Tanti on Monday next, when a good yarding of stock, sheep etc, will be offered. *** REV E. Tonkin will conduct both services in the local Methodist church next Sunday. Evening subject. “The bane of strong drink.” *** THE new edifice erected by the Methodist people at Pearcedale, will be dedicated at 3 p.m. on Thursday next, December 5th. Addresses will be given by the Revs E. Tonkin and T. Alday. This will be followed by a knife and fork tea in the public hall for which great preparation is being made. In the evening there will be enter-

tainment. A splendid programme has been arranged, including solos from Miss Florence Vines, and elocutionary items from Rev Alday. Probably a drag will be secured to convey intending visitors from Frankston. On Sunday, December 8th, the opening services will be conducted, afternoon and evening, by the Rev B. W. Heath, of Armadale. *** Peace Picnic to the Zoo. Favored by a glorious day the children’s picnic to the Zoo was a perfect success. Mr M’Donald had the train arrangements so perfectly organised, that no discomfort occurred. The special train left Somervilie at 8.10am and picked up the children from Moorooduc, Baxter, Langwarrin and Frankston, including Mt. Martha. Mr Le Souef the Director of the Gardens, personally made the visit an education treat, and his staff of courteous attendants were untiring in their efforts. The place might easily be mistaken for a Botanical Garden, for beautiful flowers foliage plants, shady trees and well kept lawns predominate and though the number of animals is immense, they seem only to occur in the beautiful surroundings, and the idea of captivity does not obtrude upon the pleasure of the visitor. The place is ideal for a picnic, and the fact that the train lands visitors at the very gates of the Zoo, makes the trip specially suitable for country parties. It was most noticeable, and to the credit of the children, how kindly

they treated the animals. They behaved as visitors should in making a friendly call. “Molly” perhaps, would be the only one that evening, to regret the visit, for when last seen, she was hors do combat - lying done up, with peanuts and lollies all about her. The return journey was made happy by thoughts of a most enjoyable day, spent with the animals of the whole world. The general opinion is that the excursion should be made an annual event. Whether it was the Kaiser’s bonfire that originated it or not, Mr Hartland has proved himself a children’s benefactor, for it was there the brighter idea was originated by him; 224 adults and 370 children took part in the excursion. *** £100 Reward. WILL be paid for information leading to the conviction of the Person or Persons who are responsible for the damage recently done to my store at Somerville. GEO KEAST *** LEFT in Mornington Train, Saturday evening, parcel containing dress, addressed Mrs Partridge. Finder please communicate with Corpl A. Partridge, Langwarrin Camp. Reward. *** Welcome Home Committee. A MEETING of the above committee was held in the Frankston Mechanics’ Hall on Tuesday evening last, in order to take steps to give a welcome to some of the Frankston soldiers who were returning in a few days.

Owing to the shortness of the notice given, there was not a large attendance. Cr Oates explained that they had been called together rather hurridly that evening for the purpose of taking steps to give a welcome home to Private R. Walker, Farrier-Sergeant Smith, Private Hanton, Wireless Operator Tait and Driver H. Covington, and as many more who may return within the next few days. Cr Mason moved that the reception take place on Friday, 6th December. Seconded by. Mr Tait, and carried. The following arrangements were made for carrying out the function Mrs H. M’Comb to have charge of the catering arrangements; Mesdames Mason and Tait to arrange the evening’s programme, and Mrs Cunneen to look after the decorating with Mr and Mrs Reeves. Misses Howett and Johnson and as many volunteers as possible to assist Mr. H M’Comb was appointed doorkeeper It was also decided to ask the Wattle Club for the loan of their crockery. Mrs Deane moved that a letter be sent to the secretary of the Frankston Fire Brigade notifying him that some of the old members were returning, and asking that other members should attend the welcome in uniform. The offer of Mr Brierly (through Mrs Mason) to play for the dances at the various welcomes to returned men gratuitously was accepted with thanks. The meeting then closed *** From the pages of the Mornington Standard, 30 November 1918

THE MEANING OF EXISTENCE... AND OTHER SHORT STORIES

The Most Awesome Enid in All The World By Stuart McCullough I’D been warned. Upon suggesting that, for her birthday, I could take my niece to the bookshop I was told to bring a packed lunch. By which they meant that she was likely to take a long time deciding. This, however, sounded about right to me as I too like to take my time when browsing in a bookshop. I’m not sure what it is about bookshops that demands a decree of decorum, if not outright silence. Is it because bookshops look a bit like libraries that people tend to keep the noise to a minimum? I’d loved reading when I was a kid. Maybe that’s because, unlike sport, I was good at it. I know that writers tend to name Milan Kundera, Marcel Proust or something equally pretentious when identifying their literary influences, but if they were honest, they’d all say ‘Enid Blyton’. Because there’s no getting around it – Enid was a literary powerhouse without equal. She is possibly the most famous ‘Enid’ of all time. I devoured her books in hours to the point that my parents despaired when I informed them the book they’d just bought me had been read, cover to cover, on the car ride home. I was kind of annoying that way. I skipped Noddy and went straight for The Magic Faraway Tree. When I think back, much of my childhood was spent looking for the Magic Faraway Tree, which I secretly hoped was located somewhere in the back paddock, even if no one had ever described the scrub on the other side of the creek as ‘enchanted’. The Wishing Chair series completely changed the way I viewed my

father’s rocking chair. It was the chair he sat on when reading the paper after work, with a small glass of sherry and a plate of barbecue shapes, cheese and cabana. When he wasn’t reading ‘The Herald’ (which was the afternoon paper then), I’d sit deeply in the

chair, grip the arms and await takeoff. It never came, which made my decision to wear a helmet seem even more ridiculous. Then there was ‘The Circus series’ featuring Jimmy Brown. It made me want to run away and join the circus.

Not because I was smitten with the circus lifestyle but because I wanted to meet Lotta. Technically speaking, the horse-riding Lotta may have been my first ever crush. Upon reflection, I’m not sure what value I would have added to the circus. I wasn’t that good with animals and struggled to make a decent fist of the monkey bars, much less the trapeze. Probably sound clerical support. I was addicted to the Famous Five. Much like a wedding invitation, I dreamed of a world inhabited by ‘the Famous Five’ with me as their ‘plus one’. I would have happily spent my youth solving mysteries and enjoying lashings of jam and sweet tea rather than doing my homework and watering the plants (my least favourite chore). Julian, Dick and Ann would welcome me. George would be resentful at first but, after I cracked a few mysteries, would give me the crime-fighting respect I deserved. As for Timmy the dog, he’d be all over me like a meat tray. Of course I moved on to ‘The Secret Seven’. Although, as with musical groups, the bigger the band the less likely you are to recall the individual members. When you say ‘John, Paul, George and Ringo’, everyone knows who you’re talking about. Try doing it with Earth, Wind and Fire and you’ll only confuse people. In many respect, The Secret Seven were the Earth, Wind and Fire of children’s literature. Peter, Janet, Jack, Pam, Sporty, Ginger and Ringo were the Secret Seven, a society with the somewhat unfortunate initials of ‘the SS’, dedicated to solving mysteries. As childhood pastimes go,

I genuinely feel that solving mysteries has fallen off the radar. I blame video games. At a certain point in your life, you move on from Enid Blyton. Not all at once, but once it happens you can never really go back. But it remains embedded in my childhood. Not that she was without her critics. According to Wikipedia, her works have variously been described as elitist, sexist, racist and xenophobic. Doubtless, she brushed this off as ‘nit-picking’. As flawed as they are, they are the product of the age in which they were born. What’s fascinating is that they continue to speak to the imaginations of children even now. After several hours of browsing, I’d selected a book on Economics and something by PJ O’Rourke on the state of politics today which, based on the blurb, I suspect PJ believes is something akin to general insanity. From time to time I checked on my niece who, like me, was taking her sweet time. It never occurred to me that long-form browsing in bookshops might be a family trait. Somehow, and without prompting, she found herself standing in front of the Enid Blyton section. There was a period of consultation and much deliberation. Eventually, we went with The Magic Faraway Tree. I’ll be fascinated to see if she likes it. Or whether, next time we’re in Tyabb at my father’s farm, she wants to look for the Magic Faraway Tree in the back paddock. I’m a certain starter. I’ll just need to remember to bring a packed lunch with lashings of jam and sweet tea. stuart@stuartmccullough.com

Big total: Long Island have made it a challenge for Crib Point after posting a total of 245. Picture: Andrew Hurst

Long Island play the long game By Brodie Cowburn

PENINSULA

LONG Island have kicked off their two dayer against Crib Point in style, batting out the first day to post a huge total of 9/245. Long Island’s opening three batsmen kept the runs ticking over, but a brilliant fourth wicket stand of 105 runs between Michael Burke and Brad Bailey helped them to a fantastic position. Bailey batted brilliant to post 75 runs. At the close of play for the day, Long Island ended up at 9/245 off 80 overs. Glenn Barclay was the pick of the bowlers, taking 2/38 off 22 overs. Crib Point will have a very difficult task ahead of them to salvage the match, especially given they sit bottom of the ladder. Moorooduc relied on opener Ben Williams’ score of 60 in their opening innings at Eric Bell Reserve to help them to a final total of 154 against the Pines. Williams received little help from his batting partners, as they all toppled alongside him for less than 15. Williams eventually fell with his side at 4/63, and the tail chipped in to held them to a defendable total. Pines’ run chase was dealt a blow in their four overs at the crease before the close of play, after Moorooduc’s Robbie Lancaster claimed an early scalp to leave the home side at 1/4 . Baden Powell will face Somerville in a two day clash. Main Ridge will battle Red Hill in a

two day clash.

DISTRICT

DELACOMBE Park will go into the second day of their clash against Carrum with a very handy lead. Jonathan Guthrie’s opening run stand of 80 set the tone for a fantastic innings, as Delacombe Park ended up all out for an impressive 224. The tail performed especially well, as, as they recovered from 5/117 to post a very impressive total. Captain Ricky Ramsdale put together an entertaining innings in the middle order, smashing two sixes. Jake D’Atri can hold his head up after taking four wickets, including the prize scalp of Guthrie caught and bowled. Carrum came in to bat to close the day out and finished at 0/10 off five overs. Seaford will be disappointed after a complete capitulation against Seaford Tigers, which left them bowled out after just 35 overs. Seaford’s opening four batsmen in their crosstown derby combined for only 14 runs, leaving the middle order to salvage something from the innings. Dil Pageni top scored with 22, and Seaford were left bruised and battered all out for 91. Matthew Roach was damaging and economical with the ball, claiming 3/18 off nine overs. Seaford Tigers also saw a number of wickets fall early, and were left struggling at 5/47. Matthew Roach came in to bat and again saved the day by post-

ing 74 runs, including a six, to guide the Tigers to 8/199 at the close of play. At Thomas Barclay Oval, Heatherhill have started strongly and posted a good total against Hastings. Heatherhill’s tail let down good performances from the top order, as they finished up all out for 175 from a little under 74 overs. Luke Hewitt took 4/29 off his 15 overs. Hastings came in for their innings and batted well over six overs to finish the afternoon at 0/13. Mt Martha are set to take on Rosebud in a clash that will end next Saturday.

SUB DISTRICT

TYABB have got off to a superb start away from home in their two day clash against Dromana. Nick Taranto opened for the Yabbies, and put together an unbelievable performance to set his side up for a huge total. Taranto raised the bat after passing his century, knocking 16 fours to the boundaries and a six as well. He was eventually dismissed for 127, but the damage had well and truly been done. Dromana will have a big task next week to catch up. Skye have made a meal for their first innings against Boneo, with their opponents passing their target with ease on the first day of play. Glen Petersen posted figures of 3/6 as Skye fell for a paltry 57 from 42 overs. Boneo battered Skye, posting 5/232

off just 38 hours, setting themselves up to take both innings. At Peninsula Reserve, Jason Bedford put together a captain’s knock in the middle order to help his side to 156 all out against Balnarring. Bedford hit three sixes and five fours to post a total of 67. His wicket was the last to fall at the end of the 63rd over. Balnarring’s run chase hit an early speed bump with the loss of their opener, but they settled to make 1/26 from 16 overs. Andrew Kiston bowled six overs before stumps, impressing to take figures of 1/1. Tootgarook are set to take on Carrum Downs in their two-dayer. Rye, who are not flying high after losing five on the fly, have a bye.

PROVINCIAL

A FANTASTIC team performance by Langwarrin has seen them finish at 246 at stumps in their clash away from home to Mt Eliza. Six Langwarrin batsmen posted totals above 20, with Taylor Smith raising the bat for a half century. The Redlegs will have to work hard to get near the target on day two of their clash. At Harry MacDonald Oval, Peninsula Old Boys have got off to a good start in their run chase against Pearcedale. Pearcedale won the toss and elected to bat first, with Matt Cousland top scoring from the number three position with 46 runs.

James La Brooy was good with ball in hand for OB, taking 4/39 and doing particular damage to the tail. Old Boys had 11 overs to make a dent in their target, and performed well to end up at 0/44 at stumps. Josh Swainston was expensive from his three overs, conceding 21 runs. Alexandra Park played host to Mornington and and Sorrento in the first day of their two day clash. Sorrento opened the batting and were left shocked after losing their two opening batsmen for just 5 runs each. They continued to struggle until a huge middle order partnership of 124 runs between Liam O’Connor and Chris King helped the Sharks recover to make 205 all out. Their last six wickets were lost for just 11 runs. Rueben Higgins tore through the tail end, claiming 5/12 off less than eight overs. Mornington batted six overs before stumps, finishing at 0/12. Flinders’ match against Baxter got off to a rough start as their opening innings was brought to a close for just 76 runs. Chamika Sattambi raised the ball with a five wicket haul. Daniel Warwick top scored for Baxter in their subsequent innings with 57 runs to help Baxter claim the first innings. They declared at 3/101. Flinders are in danger of losing both innings in the second day, as their eight overs to close the day saw them finish at 2/9.

Chalkitis confident of success SOCCER

By Craig MacKenzie HARRY Chalkitis is a man on a mission and for Southern United’s sake let’s hope it’s not mission impossible. Two-time Victorian Coach of the Year, former men’s state team coach, head coach of Bentleigh Greens and Port Melbourne, head coach of Victoria Vision in the women’s NSL, head of Victoria’s National Training Centre women’s program … The list of coaching credits goes on and on but right now Chalkitis is focused on a major challenge as Southern United technical director and it’s one he is meeting head-on. “Football is all about results and we have to be results focussed,” Chalkitis said. “Anyone who says it’s not is either on another planet or doesn’t have a clue. “Why do you play if you don’t play to win? “Development has its place but it will happen while you’re winning games and it has to be like that.” Southern’s results created records last season but for the wrong reasons. It drew one of its 27 league games, scored five goals and had 188 scored against it. Chalkitis restructured the club’s coaching set-up and now is working on overhauling the senior squad. “I definitely think we can turn things around and if we can start getting results there will be a different emphasis at the club and people outside the club will start looking at us differently.” Chalkitis is on the phone daily to his many contacts in the game, arranging meetings with coaches and casting a wide net in search of the players who can best fill the club’s two available visa spots. His long-standing friendship with Arsenal women’s head coach and former Melbourne Victory and Melbourne City W-League coach Joe Montemurro may reap rewards and the appointment of Uruguayan-born Washington Castillo as senior coach has allowed Southern to look at players from South America. But Chalkitis is not only focusing on sifting through overseas visa prospects. He’s also searching local and interstate markets for players that would be a good fit for Southern. He has held discussions with a highprofile goalkeeper and he’s hoping that his Victory and Melbourne City contacts will allow him to deal directly with players who may be lured

to Southern at the end of the current W-League season. Southern’s 2018 captain Natasha Dakic and goalkeeper Freya Crocker have left the club but for Chalkitis these are minor hiccups along the way and all part of the off-season merrygo-round that is a hallmark of the modern game. He admits that the club was keen to retain Dakic who is a talented central defender or midfielder but it looks likely that she will join Box Hill United. “We’ve already achieved one target which was to develop our under-19 squad instead of relying on players from younger squads to supplement that team. “We’ve got 14 to 15 girls training twice a week under Aaron (Myatt) and I’m pleased with the way that is progressing.” Chalkitis has been looking at the local women’s scene and targets have been identified and will be contacted this week. He’s keen to bolster the midfield and striking stocks and he’s confident that he’ll get the players that can turn things around. “My first aim is to make sure that players who come to Southern and play for us next year are here to com-

pete not just to have a training session. “Respect is what makes it or breaks it. “If we can get a bit of respect around the traps where people say ‘we’re going to Southern but there’s no guarantee that we’re going to win’ then we will have improved.” In State 1 South-East news veteran midfielder Craig Smart has signed on for a ninth straight season at Mornington. Smart, 35, is a former Frankston Strikers, Frankston Pines and Bentleigh Greens star who has left an indelible mark on the local scene. It’s believed that Doveton and Peninsula Strikers were among a group of clubs keen to talk to the Scot who has been on the books of Edinburgh giants Hibs and Hearts. “I’ve got a strong bond with a lot of guys still at Mornington and with the senior team in a rebuilding stage there’s a lot of juniors coming through which is what attracted me to play another year there,” Smart said. “I contemplated retiring but there’s a couple of incentives to help the young guys coming through. “It’s year by year now for me and I had a tough season last season which is why I considered my options.” Smart is a popular figure among his

peers and next season he’ll come up against many former teammates who are in the senior squad at newly promoted Doveton. “I’ve been around for a while so there are plenty of old teammates that I play against nowadays but yes it’ll be good fun playing against Doveton.” It will be even more fun if Mornington wins a place in Victoria’s elite club competition which will adopt a threetier structure after next season. “It’s exciting to think about promotion next season and getting the club into a position it’s never been in. I want to be part of that.” In State 2 South-East news there has been a change to Peninsula Strikers’ pre-season fixtures. Danny Verdun’s men will now take on NPL giant Oakleigh Cannons at Centenary Park on the evening of Tuesday 22 January and the Kingston City match scheduled for the following day has been called off. Strikers’ central defender George Whiteoak is expected to join State 1 outfit Mazenod Victory. In State 3 South-East news Frankston Pines announced last week that it had secured the signing of 23-year-old Callum Khaiyath for season 2019. “CK” is a former Dandenong City and Knox City junior who made the

breakthrough into senior ranks with Casey Comets under Billy Armour. He made his senior debut for Langwarrin under Gus Macleod in 2016 and was part of the Lawton Park club’s 2017 championship-winning squad. “He is an accomplished, versatile footballer who can play in a variety of positions and we are delighted to have secured the services of a player who was being pursued by a number of clubs,” Football Operations Manager Lee Davies said. Khaiyath joined Noble Park United in round 4 last season. “He is a right footer and is comfortable playing in either full-back position, as a centre back or in the middle of the park,” Pines senior coach Kevin “Squizzy” Taylor said. “He’s fit, has an excellent work rate and technically is very good.” Pines announced yesterday (Monday) that it also had signed 18-yearold Bailey Atkinson. The attacking full back has received an outstanding football education with NPL clubs Bentleigh Greens, Dandenong Thunder and Dandenong City. “We are delighted to welcome another quality young player to the club,” president Steve Spencer said. “Bailey is an exciting local talent who has opted to join us over an NPL club. “Credit must go to Lee (Davies) and ‘Squizzy’ (Kevin Taylor) who have identified and secured Bailey who we view as a long-term senior player for Frankston Pines.” In State 4 South news Seaford United has clinched the signing of striker Mitch Lander who left North Seaford Reserve to play for Pines last season. “Mitch is a massive signing for us,” Seaford senior coach Matt MorrisThomas said. “His forward pressure on and off the ball will be really important next season and he’s already shown that he can score goals so we’re delighted to have him back at the club.” Morris-Thomas is negotiating with a central defender and two central midfielders from local clubs and hopes to reach agreement this week. “Things are starting to come together really well and we want to become a more professional outfit,” he said. “We’ve locked in a physio which we haven’t had for a while, we’ve got the new changerooms and we’re basically rebuilding the squad.”

Road cyclists rewarded at club champs By Ben Triandafillou THE Mornington Cycling Club hosted their season’s highlight, the MCC Road Club Championships, in Main Ridge on Saturday 10 November. The MCC Road Club Championships has long been touted as the club’s biggest day of the year, and this year it was certainly no different. The pinnacle of the club’s year had the biggest turnout they’ve ever had with the women’s competition enjoying more popularity than in recent years. Mornington Cycling Club president Bruce Trew said the event certainly lived up to its high expectations. “It went really well,” Trew said.

“The weather was perfect. It was meant to be the best day of the year and that’s exactly what it was. “It was a good club day and a good competitive race day.” The main events were won by Alex Holden who took out the Men’s Road Club Championship and Jordyn Hassett who won the Women’s Road Club Championship. Holden’s win in the Men’s Road Club Championship, brought up his third straight year of success in the feature event. Trew said it has been great to see Holden continue his successful run. “He’s really dedicated, rides copious amounts of kilometres and is just

really committed to his riding,” he said. “He does all the hard work, he’s humble and quietly spoken and it’s great to see him start getting results at the top level.” Holden has been riding as part of the elite road cycling team, Anchor Point South Coast Cycling, for the past year and has been competing on the National Road Series circuit. Another notable winner from the championships was 18-year-old Jack Marshall who won the under-19s event as well as being awarded the under-19s Joel Hawkins Scholarship. The scholarship offers the up-andcoming talent support for his road

cycling development over a 12 month period as a racing member of MCC. It also provides him with a full package of coaching, physical therapy, bike servicing, MCC membership and kit. Trew said they couldn’t have found a better recipient for the award. “He was a really worthy recipient, his application was amazing and he was just the perfect candidate for the award,” he said. “He’s an up and coming junior and just an all-round really nice kid.” Further results from the MCC Road Club Championships included: In the Legends division: First: Colin Morris, second: Ben Shuster, third: Clive Strickland; Super Masters:

First: Neale Adams, second: Edy Gasparini; Masters: First: Jackson Sharples, second: Dean Phillips, third: Bruce Trew; under-19s: First: Jack Marshall, second: Nathan Mann, third: Flynn Atkins; Elite Men: First: Alex Holden, second: Andy Gynes, third: Jet Turner; and in the Elite Women: First: Jordyn Hassett, second: Bizzy Butterworth, third: Dale Maizels. The Mornington Cycling Club will hold one more competition for the season, the Criterium Championships, which will be held at Casey Fields in December.

Triples bowls final rescheduled THE REGIONAL Triples Finals which were set to be held at the Mount Eliza Bowling Club on Wednesday 21 November have been rescheduled to be played two weeks later. The Regional Triples Finals will still be hosted by the Mount Eliza Bowling Club but will now be played on Wednesday 5 December. The finals were rescheduled as some of the teams had made their way into the Victorian Open which was held in Shepparton on the same day. Despite the change of date, the finals will still be hotly contested by some of the best bowlers on the Mornington Peninsula and Frankston area. In the men’s event, Mt Eliza will play off against Frankston while Dromana and Karingal will face off in the women’s division. Mount Eliza Bowling Club president Grahame Gordon said the results from the Victorian Open highlighted the quality of bowlers that will be competing in the Regional Triples Finals. “Our team (Mt Eliza) reached the final eight in the Triples in Shepparton and so did Frankston so I think we will really see a great game of bowls in a couple of weeks,” Gordon said. “[The change of date] hasn’t really affected us. Our greens are very

consistent so it will really be the best quality team that will win on the day. We welcome anyone who wants to watch a very high quality standard of bowls in action.” Gordon said the Women’s Triples Final between Dromana and Karingal

will be a really interesting game to watch, having seen the standard of play in the semi-finals. “They’ve got some very strong teams from Dromana and Karingal competing and their semi-finals games were probably one of the

greatest games of bowls I’ve ever watched,” he said. “It was just an allround great quality game.” From the Regional Triples Finals, the winners will head towards the State Triples Finals which will be played at the Brighton Bowling Club.

Change of date: The Regional Triple Finals will now be played on Wednesday 5 December due to previously clashing with the Victorian Open. Picture: Supplied.

MORNINGTON NEWS scoreboard Out of nowhere: Previously unknown sprinter Dhruv Rodrigues-Chico stormed home to win the 120 metre Men’s Gift final. Picture: Supplied

Hastings Gift hits the ground running By Ben Triandafillou ATHLETES from across the country descended upon the Thomas Barclay Oval, Hastings in hopes of claiming the inaugural running of the Hastings Gift on Saturday 17 November. With $8,000 up for grabs in the 120-metre men’s and women’s feature events, the Hastings Gift was bound to attract plenty of attention. But it was the local Mornington Peninsula-based sprinting team, Pride Performance, who came to the fore in the 120m Women’s Gift as Sophia Fighera took out the first edition of the Women’s Hastings Gift. Fighera (5.00 handicap) finished ahead of Cara Boustead (10.00) and Commonwealth Games competitor Maddie Coates (-2.00) in the women’s final. That victory gave Fighera her

second Gift win in the past two years having also won the St Alban’s Gift in 2017. In the men’s feature event, it was the previously unknown Dhruv Rodrigues-Chico (6.00 handicap) who claimed gold in the Gift final, ahead of Fegiro omuvuie (5.00) and Tim Rosen (14.00). To add to the already impressive feat, it was Dhruv’s first time competing in a Victorian League competition. Hastings Gift race analyst Brosnan Kelly said it was a fantastic achievement for both Gift winners. “To win the Gift against the calibre of athletes that competed at your first go is pretty impressive – it’s really unheard of,” Brosnan said. “Sophia ran exceptionally well. It’s her first year with Pride Performance and she’s had a great year as she also

made the Stawell Gift semi-final earlier this year as well.” Further winners from the inaugural Hastings Gift included: 70m Open: Hanna Basic (9.25); 70M Restricted: Rachel O’Brien (14.25); 120m under-14 Mixed: Harry O’Farrell (15.0); 120m under-18 Boys: Eugene Read-spinks (19.50); 120m under-18 Girls: Fin Fawcett (26.25); 120m Masters: Steven Coulson (15.75); 300m Open: Mohamad Zeed (26.00); 300m Womens & Masters: Zoe Nicholson (54.00); 800m Open: Ky Davies (50.00); and 1600m Open: Joel Donnar (100.00). Overall, Brosnan Kelly said the feedback from all the competitors was very positive. “They all said they’ll be back next year which is massive because if there’s no athletes, there’s no Gift,”

he said. “I thought the standard of athletes was very good. To have multiple Stawell Gift winners and Commonwealth Games competitors in the inaugural running of the Hastings Gift was brilliant. “The winners said it felt prestigious, so it will be more about keeping the atmosphere going and hopefully the Gift can continue to get better as the years go on. “I’m pretty proud of how the inaugural event went and I think it’s a great starting point to build off.” Similarly, Hastings Gift president Terry Kelly said the first running of the Gift was certainly a success but the support that they received throughout the process was a massive help. “Being the first one, you don’t re-

ally know what to expect, but all the athletes that came said that they were happy with the facilities and the support we had throughout the process was absolutely fantastic,” he said. “We had enormous support from the council and local traders, and the Hastings Cricket Club was incredibly helpful as well as they gave us their field for the day and took time away from their own competition.” Whether we see the Gift again next year, Terry Kelly said he “sees no reason why not”. “It’s a lot of work and you learn a lot, but the intention is to make it an annual event alongside the Rye Gift and put two great Gifts from the Peninsula onto the calendar.” The Rye Gift and Family Fun Day will be held on the second Saturday of January, 2019.

Our Luca tops off Hunter’s winning week LOW-FLYING sprinter Our Luca topped off a successful week for Mornington-based racehorse trainer, Jerome Hunter, on Friday 16 November. The five-year-old gelding’s backto-back victory at the Moonee Valley twilight meeting provided Hunter with his third consecutive win in two days – having had Bianconi Magic and Tall Lady break their maidens the night before at Pakenham. Our Luca led from the front before kicking clear under the urgings of Mornington-based apprentice jockey Jack Martin. The Brent Stanley-trained gelding Critical Thinking lunged late, but Our Luca held on for a half-head victory and brought up his sixth win from 12 career starts. Trainer Jerome Hunter said it’s been a positive couple of years for the stable. “The last 12 months to two years have been very good and the stable has been going really well,” Hunter said. “You can’t win them all, but you’ve just got to place them the best you can and hope they’ll be competitive. We just try to find the right race for the right horse.”

Hattrick: Our Luca previously winning at Pakenham. Picture: Supplied

Hunter has found the right race for Our Luca more often than not, having finished first or second at every start for his last two preparations. He has also found plenty of success at Moonee Valley over the past

27 November 2018

couple of seasons, and this season in particular he currently sits at 100 per cent strike rate at the track with two winners from two runners. Hunter said taking a more quality over quantity approach has paid

dividends for him. “I’m fortunate enough to be able to sell the ones that I don’t think are all that good up north where they can start to win some races and hang on to the ones that have potential and

are going to go through the grades relatively fast,” he said. Hunter, who had a good opinion of Bianconi Magic and Tall Lady, said he felt that they both showed signs of having that potential. “I always liked them heading in,” he said. “They always showed something, and their trials were encouraging. I thought they would pick off their maiden’s pretty quickly and Pakenham just seemed the right place to place them.” Bianconi Magic and Tall Lady both broke their maidens with relative ease. Bianconi Magic came from the back of the field to score a comfortable three-and-a-quarter length win over equal-favourite Subican while Tall Lady hugged the rails up front and kicked clear for a two-and-a-half length victory. Both maiden winners were ridden by apprentice jockey Stephanie Thornton. Hunter said he now plans on giving Bianconi Magic and Tall Lady one more start before sending them out for a spell, while Our Luca will head towards another benchmark 78 race at Moonee Valley on Saturday 1 December.
