Rally to end animal deaths Stephen Taylor steve@mpnews.com.au ABOUT 40 pet lovers rallied outside Mornington Peninsula Shire’s offices in Queen St, Mornington last week to protest at the number of animals being killed by the shire’s animal shelter.

The Save Mornington Pound Pets rally, Sunday 19 November, expressed concern about the running of the pound, and pushed for changes that would see more animals put up for adoption rather than being put down. The group heard that since the opening of the shire’s new $900,000 shelter

in Watt Rd last month, adoption rates have declined and kill rates risen. “This is a public concern as the shire’s decision to open the pound 10am-1pm Saturdays without an appointment to increase adoptions seems to have failed,” rally organiser Eugenia Holak said.

“The animal caring public want to know where the impounded dogs and cats are going, and what is happening to them, as they are not being put up for adoption at this new facility. “The public wants answers and changes with the running of this pound, to secure more animals for

adoption and bring them back into the community into loving homes.” The shire was asked if the Saturday morning trial openings at the animal shelter were effective, what were visitor numbers and how many pets were being adopted. No reply was received before deadline.

Mayor determined to end the party Stephen Taylor steve@mpnews.com.au NEW Mornington Peninsula Shire mayor Cr Bryan Payne last week defended proposed laws regulating short stay rental accommodation on the Mornington Peninsula. Under the tough new law property owners could face fines of up to $3100. The draft local law, open for comment until Friday 7 December, centres around a registration system listing the property owner’s name and address, as well as an appointed agent who must respond within two hours to neighbours’ complaints. It also establishes a code of conduct limiting the number of occupants, outlining expectations of behaviour of occupants, and controls over car parking and rubbish disposal. Some of the more contentious rules include banning rowdy parties; banning guests from using swimming pools, spas, outdoor decking and balconies 10pm-8am; and not allowing visitors between the same times. Speaking on ABC radio, Cr Payne said the draft laws were “not over the top but an innovative process to curb an important problem”. “Mornington Peninsula, like all resort areas, has got a real problem. “Just next door to my place we had this going on for 12 months; they just

have parties all night and you ring the police and nothing happens,” he said. “We've [the shire] had 87 complaints in the past 12 months … one poor lady was put into hospital with stress because of the whole thing, other people have been threatened. “While people are having these parties and the neighbours have to put up with it, the owners are sitting back in Melbourne oblivious to what’s going on.” The mayor said the registrations aimed to tackle party houses “set up for 20 people”. “We are trying to stop it at the start,” he said. The shire may cancel a property’s registration after it receives three or more “substantiated” complaints about tenants’ activities from nearby residents over 12 months, or it receives a substantiated complaint “of such severity that immediate cancellation is warranted”. Further fines will be issued for each day offences continue after a court has found the owner guilty of an offence. Under the code of conduct, the owner must display the property’s permit number at all times and be responsible for any visitors. Other rules include not exceeding parking spaces, not allowing tents, caravans or campervans and warning tenants of emergency management procedures, such as bush fire evacua-

tion plans. The shire’s environment protection manager John Rankine said the proposed law would require the police to respond to complaints of anti-social behaviour and late night party noise at the time. Council officers would follow up complaints from neighbours “to get their statements and gather further evidence”. Stayz short-term rental provider Christine Delamore, who rents out her holiday home in Dromana mainly to visitors from South-East Asia, said any new rules should apply to all – not just renters. “Whenever rules are brought in they want to appease those who complain,” she said, referring to the 10pm-8am deck and pool curfews which apply only to short-term renters – not other residents. While saying the curfew was “unfair” Ms Delamore agreed “there should be some rules”. “It’s not hard to target repeat offenders and all of the complaints would concern larger homes which take up to 20 people.” Stayz’s government relations chief Eacham Curry predicts the “onerous costs or processes will discourage people from listing their homes and drive up the cost of holiday accommodation”.

Diving for the record AN attempt to break the Guinness World Record for the longest chain of scuba divers in the world will bring hundreds of divers to Rye next weekend. The Dive Industry of Victoria Association is out to beat the old record of 308 divers off Rye Pier, 10am, Saturday 2 December. Organiser Luke English, who runs Red Boats scuba and snorkelling charters, said that when he originally applied to the Guinness Book of World Records to host a record attempt it stood at 179 people. “I thought we might be able to beat that but, when we got the notice that we had been approved, the record had risen to 308 divers,” he said. That’s the target to beat. The scope of the attempt was

daunting, Mr English said. “It’s a big logistical exercise”. “So, I approached the Diving Industry Association and said we would be better doing it as an industry and they agreed.” So far, 400 divers have registered for the attempt. “We could have got more,” said Mr English, adding that he would prefer to beat the record narrowly rather than smash it. That would generate interest in future attempts. “Our goal is to break the record by, say, five people. That would be on my wish list.” Participants will enter the water from the shore east of the car park at 8am. The $26 cost includes a t-shirt. Details: events@divelatrobe.org.au

Rays still suffer despite ban Keith Platt keith@mpnews.com.au EARLY morning walkers at Safety Beach on Friday were horrified and saddened to see the white underbelly of a large dead stingray lying in the shallows. Several passersby they thought it was one they had often admired from the beach. Regulations to protect stingrays, skates and guitar fish came into force on 7 November making it illegal to catch the fish from or within 400 metres of any man made structure. Fisheries officer Rod Barber, who on Friday was checking boats at the Safety Beach launching ramp, found a round wound behind the dead stingray’s head. “If they’re not going to eat the ray it should be returned unharmed to the water,” Mr Barber said. “This one looks like it’s been stabbed and thrown back.” He said the new regulations were also intended to increase people’s respect for the fish “as everything has its place in the environment”. The community group Project Banjo which earlier this year launched a public campaign to protect fish commonly identified as rays or banjo sharks, sees the new regulations as “a huge step forward”. Members of the group photographed parts of the seabed around piers on the Mornington Peninsula littered with the corpses of dead rays, often mutilated by knife wounds. On 1 November the Victorian Fisheries Authority (VFA) announced a ban on the taking of rays more than 1.5 metres across; reduced the bag limit for all skates, guitar fish and all other rays from five to one a day; made it mandatory for the entire fish to be brought back to land so its size could be checked; and banned rays, skates and guitar fish being taken from or within 400 metres of any man made structure. The regulations were introduced in the face of a media campaign which attracted international attention and included a 33,000-signature petition. Project Banjo predicted the changes “are set to lead the way both nationally and internationally in recognising the

need for better treatment of these marine animals that play a vital role in the heath of marine ecosystems” (“Bay rays win protection” The News 7/11/17). Project Banjo coordinator P T Hirschfield, a keen scuba diver and underwater photographer who lives at Safety Beach, said the new regulations “are a massive win in direct response to the senseless slaughter of rays, in particular smooth rays and fiddler rays” publicised by the group. She said the VFA’s “comprehensive solutions package” included the new rules being added to the Victorian Recreational Fishing Guide and signs on piers and jetties around Port Phillip. “Rays are generally not considered to be desirable catch, and the Project Banjo action group has collated significant photograph and video evidence of unwanted rays that have been systematically been either slaughtered or mutilated and returned live into the water,” Ms Hirschfield said. “Too often, the smaller rays have been considered as pests that compete for fish or who repeatedly take bait. “Some anglers have killed them to avoid the inconvenience of catching the same ray twice. Many have been mutilated to retrieve inexpensive fishing hooks. Others have been dealt knife wounds and deep cranial splits and had flaps removed or been cut in half while still alive before being discarded into the water, which is blatant animal cruelty.” Ms Hirschfield said stingrays had been portrayed as “malicious man-killers” following the death of Steve Irwin while filming a documentary in 2006. She said the death of the zookeeper, conservationist and television personality was just the third ray-related death in Australian history. “In reality, rays do not attack humans but have been known to act in self-defence when they feel themselves to be in any way threatened,” Ms Hirschfield said. “Typically, these rays are much loved by locals and tourists alike in the waterways and around the man-made structures they frequent.” The deliberate harming of non-target fish species – including rays, toadfish and native sea stars – can be reported to Fisheries Victoria on 13 3474 (13FISH).

Hall of fame for tourism winners TWO Mornington Peninsula-based tourism businesses have been inducted into the Victorian Tourism Awards Hall of Fame for being awarded gold in three consecutive years, including this year. Peninsula Hot Springs and Harmony Bed & Breakfast, both at Fingal, entered the hall of fame for their respective categories, ecotourism and hosted accommodation. Other peninsula businesses to win medals at this year’s RACV Victorian Tourism Awards were: Gold - Arthurs Seat Eagle (new tourism business); silver - Crittenden Estate (tourism

wineries, distilleries and breweries), Lakeside Villas at Crittenden Estate (self-contained accommodation), Bunyip Tours (major tour and transport operators); bronze - Mornington Peninsula Brewery (tourism wineries, distilleries and breweries), Aquabelle Apartments (elf-contained accommodation). The awards were announced in Melbourne on Thursday 23 November. All Victorian business category gold winners are automatically entered into the Qantas Australian Tourism Awards which will be held in Perth in February 2018.

Tourism needs a balance - study THE effects of tourism on the Mornington Peninsula residents is reaching critical levels, according to a researcher Monash University honours student Pallavi Shridhar is upfront in saying increased levels of tourism can reduce a community’s quality of life. Also, that increased exposure to the impacts of tourism reduces residents’ ability to cope with the changes it brings. It also increases their sensitivity to these impacts. In her year-long study overseen by senior Monash Business School lecturer Glen Croy, Ms Shridhar highlights “low levels of community resilience” among the 161 peninsula residents as indicating that an increase DECKING

to the environmental impacts of tourism – more so than the economic and socio-cultural impacts. “It [tourism] is seen as a tool which brings economic impacts to the area but residents also feel its [negative] social and cultural impacts,” he said. While the research was compiled over winter, Mr Croy said summer brought the most dramatic impacts to the peninsula, and that residents traditionally had used the off-season to rejuvenate and prepare for the busy holiday rush. He said a Mornington Peninsula Regional Tourism Authority strategy was to spread tourists around the peninsula, rather than having them concentrated in the south. Community input into the formulation of the shire’s tourism policy was important, he said. “We can see that

them and garner support for further tourism development,” she said, adding that studies have shown that “too much tourism ... can create irreparable damage to the community”. Despite the desirable focus on the wishes of the community, the “majority of community tourism studies work on the underlying assumption that ... tourism is a fundamentally beneficial phenomenon for the community”. Ms Shridhar said that because tourism was likely to increase, it was important to mitigate its negative impacts and “potentially limit its development”. Visitor numbers to the peninsula have risen over the past decade, with almost eight million people visiting last year. Off-season tourist numbers rose 62 per cent 1998-2016. Mr Croy said the results of the study showed that residents were sensitive

in tourism “will have a significant effect on the community … which is at, or nearing, a critical tourism level”. Ms Shridhar’s research appears to reflect the concerns of some residents that tourism-at-any-cost is a not a good thing for the peninsula – particularly in the light of traffic gridlock in Rye and Sorrento over summer; increased litter on streets and foreshores; environmental damage; and the increasing numbers of apartments. The combined effect of these impacts is to remove all that attracted tourists to this area in the first place – as one letter writer to The News said. Ms Shridhar said it was reasonable to expect that tourism should focus on adding value to the community – and be halted if these impacts turn negative. “Yet the focus is often on how to harness the community and educate

lots of people are concerned about the levels of tourism but not many are prepared to speak up,” he said. Ms Shridhar said it was “vital” that governments and tourism bodies “understand how tourism affects local communities”. “Stronger community engagement is crucial to ensure tourism develops in a manner that puts community interests at heart, rather than only tourism or economic development. “This … requires the community being … involved in planned changes and that residents participate to inform planning and decision-making.” This would help refocus attention away from economic and destination development to “community and resilience development, using tourism … as a tool for community protection and development”.

Aldi lifts ban on college students make the issue known. “This allows the school to attempt to address the issue before it becomes a matter for the police. “Despite the engagement and support of the local school, a handful of students continued to display inappropriate behaviour. As a result, the Aldi Mornington store made an independent decision to temporarily ban students unless accompanied by an adult. “The Facebook posts from aggrieved parents and students have been reviewed by Aldi. We agree that the decision to ban unaccompanied students is not a viable solution to this issue and we have since lifted the ban. “Aldi will continue to work with the school and, if required, with the local police.” Mornington Secondary College refused to comment.

A MORNINGTON Aldi supermarket appears to have settled its dispute with Mornington Secondary College over claims of students’ shoplifting and disruptive behaviour. Although neither the store manager nor the school would comment, Friday, it appears the store’s ban on students has been lifted. A social media storm erupted when student Jai Duesterhaus filmed himself being refused service and shown the door by the manager of the Peninsula Homemaker Centre store on Nepean Highway. “You’re telling me I can’t come in because I’m from Mornington Secondary College?” he asks the manager, known as Dom, in his recording. The manager replies, “Yes, correct. Unfortunately like I said, mate ... tweet it, Facebook if you like, but unfortunately schoolkids have stolen from the store. Students plural.” The student’s mother, Anita, said online she was sent a “written apology” by Aldi after complaining, but that she was told later by the manager over the phone that he “would rather lose the custom of all 1600 families that attend Mornington Secondary, rather than have them in his store”. “I understand that they have had trouble with shoplifting in the past, however I think it’s utter discrimination to outright ban 1600 students just because of the actions of some,” she wrote online. A spokesperson for Aldi Australia, who would not be named, said Thursday: “In store locations where we identify shoplifting, disruptive or disrespectful behaviour that involves school students, our preference is to work with the local school to

Friends turn up heat on coal plan A GROUP of southern Mornington Peninsula residents are united around one big issue: stopping the Adani coal mine being developed in central Queensland. The group formed after an impromptu protest in October when Lynn Carpenter put out a call on social media for people to meet on the beach at Rosebud for a “Stop Adani” protest. “With only four days’ notice 30 or so people turned up,” Gillian Adam said. “From that original protest a Facebook group was formed called Southern Peninsula Friends of the Planet. The core of this group: Lynn Carpenter, Belinda Edmonson, Gillian Adam, Kerri McCafferty and Stella Patience, are now trying to organise a noticable protest by making a human sign on the beach adjacent to the Rye pier on Sunday 3 December. Those attending are asked to wear red. “We are just ordinary working women - I am a retiree - while Stella, Lynn and Kerri are nurses and Belinda is in emergency management and currently back at university,” Ms Adam said. “Two of the group have small children. “We are all concerned about the effect this mine is going to have on the Galilee Basin, the area’s water resources and the Great Barrier Reef. “We have contacted many other groups on the peninsula – from the Greens Party to Luke English from

Red Boats Scuba Diving – and have been surprised at the support for our protest. “We’ve distributed posters to shopping and community centres, cafes, surf clubs, hospitals and tertiary institutions on the peninsula and surrounding areas. We have also emailed posters to all our contacts and environmental groups on the peninsula.” Ms Adam said the group had seen the powerful effect of “people power”, with the Stop Adani movement influencing Queensland Premier Annastacia Palaszczuk to veto government funding for the project.

Body found THE body of missing Mt Eliza woman Kylie Phillips was found by a fisherman 500 metres off the pier at Indented Head, Tuesday 21 November. The police Air Wing, water police and emergency services crews had been searching for the missing kayaker, 44, who disappeared off Mt Eliza, Wednesday 15 November. Her kayak was found in waters off Altona, Friday 17 November. It is believed Ms Phillips had a medical condition. Mornington police said the family had been notified immediately. The Water Police will prepare a report for the coroner. Anyone with mental health issues should call Lifeline Australia 13 11 14.

“Opening night will have a gala party atmosphere with an environmental theme and a display of Aboriginal totem art,” Mr Renowden said. “Gourmet finger food will be served by waitresses and waiters and refreshments will be available from our bar area and jazz music will punctuate the evening and our feature artists will mingle with guests.” Feature artists at the show will be John Bredl and Kate Jenvey. Mr Renowden said the 800 paintings from a range of media would be for sale. “The great attraction of the Mornington Art Show is the wide variety of art genre from local and in-

terstate artists employing a wide range of media,” he said. “The range of original art pieces available at prices from a couple of hundred dollars to several thousand dollars is extensive.” Profits from the art show will be used by Mornington Rotary Club for community and international projects. Tickets for the opening night are available at mornington artshow.com. au or from Farrells Bookstore, Main St, Mornington. Artists are encouraged to submit their work through Gallery 247 until 15 December and any businesses wanting to join the sponsor list should call John Parkinson on 0412 110 804.

Tighter rules in wake of flood risk Keith Platt keith@mpnews.com.au STRICTER planning rules are likely to be brought in for land around Western Port threatened by rising sea levels. The need to add a “land subject to inundation” (LSIO) overlay to the Mornington Peninsula’s planning scheme follows the release more than two years ago of a report identifying areas that will be affected by coastal erosion, flooding, sea level rises and storm surges. The updated report identifies 710 properties that need to be covered in the overlay, including 136 houses at Hastings, 85 at Balnarring Beach and 13 at Somers. There are 40 commercial properties facing clouding at Hastings and one each at Somerville and Crib Point. At Flinders, Shoreham, Point Leo, Merricks Beach and Bittern the land under threat is mainly rural or included in public reserves. The also warns that underground water supplies will increasingly be salt affected. “The balance of properties are community uses, infrastructure facilities, reserves, caravan parks, marinas or rural land,” Mornington Peninsula Shire’s planning services team leader Rosa Zouzoulas says in a report to this week’s Planning Services Committee meeting.” Ms Zouzoulas recommends that the shire asks the Planning Minister Richard Wynne to support the proposed amendment to the peninsula’s planning scheme. She says adopting the overlay could reduce “events [that] can severely disrupt communities and in extreme cases, cause extensive damage to public and private property, agricultural losses, personal hardship and potential loss of life”. Ms Zouzoulas said the Western Port Local Coastal Hazard Assessment report – released in June 2015 – “examined the potential impact of climate change on and around Western Port”. The report was undertaken by Melbourne Water, the Department of Environment, Land, Water and Planning (DELWP), South East Councils Cli-

mate Change Alliance and the four municipalities bounding Western Port. The study area includes all shorelines of Western Port and French Island, as well as the northern shorelines of Phillip Island from Newhaven to Seal Rocks. The modelling shows that properties are protected by steep foreshores between Flinders and Somers, although changes to the shoreline “could be more extensive change than previously experienced into the future”. However, “a significant number of non-rural properties” between Balnarring Beach and Hastings would be affected by the end of the century. Ms Zouzoulas said affected property owners could object to the overlay being applied to their land. “If council decides not to pursue the amendment there is significant risk [that] developers … will be required to make expensive and time consuming design changes to projects at later stages in the development process, including up to the building permit stage. “Council may also be left at risk for not taking appropriate action to limit the impact of an identified potential hazard to property and human life.” When the report was first released in 2015, DELWP regional manager Rod Anderson said it brought together “the best historical knowledge of the Western Port coastline with detailed modelling and projected sea level rise data for the years 2040, 2070 and 2100” (“Risks rise with water levels” The News 9/6/15). “The modelling from the assessment will help land managers and owners in Western Port to make decisions about how to prepare and respond to climate risks along the coast.” Mr Anderson said the study’s results would “influence future planning decisions, emergency management frameworks, local infrastructure maintenance, and regional climate adaptation planning” by all levels of government. “It will also be used to continue conversations so that we can better understand community values and priorities in Western Port, and to identify opportunities for collaborative action on climate change.”

Litter paid for travellers’ way Stephen Taylor steve@mpnews.com.au AN aversion to litter and a desire to do something about it prompted a group of Mornington Peninsula residents to down tools and spend two months picking up empty bottles and cans along the Stuart Highway from Port Augusta in South Australia to Darwin. The trip for the five mates – who all have links to Boneo Cricket Club (the Boneo Pandas) – was financed entirely by collecting the 10c refunds paid for each item at six deposit points in towns on their 3000km journey. Their haul of 100,000 bottles and cans picked up along the roadside from early August to late September earned them the princely sum of $10,000. This paid for their food, petrol, accommodation and, if there was any left over, a few beers at the local pub. “We had a rule that we could not touch any of our own money,” said the trip’s organiser, Heath Laube, a semi-retired electrician and documentary maker, of Mt Martha. He said he wanted to show people “how filthy we are” in what was named the Panda Project, after the cricket club’s nickname. “I’ve driven that road four times during trips around Australia and seen how filthy it was,” he said. Also up for the challenge were Bob Denman (retired) of McCrae, Matt Rogers (sheet metal worker) has just moved from Rosebud to Kyneton, Jai

Rubbish money: Heath Laube, Jai Thoolen, Bob Denman, Brian “Birdy” Bird, Shane Kennedy and Matt Rogers collected enough rubbish to pay for their road trip from Port Augusta to Darwin. Picture: Yanni

Thoolen (jeweller and author of children’s books) of Rosebud, Shane Kennedy (plasterer) of Safety Beach, and Brian Bird (carpenter), Mt Martha. On their trip, which involved three vehicles and a caravan, the men drove slowly along the road, picking up discarded recyclable rubbish, which they stored in the ute and cage trailers which hold 3000-6000 items. A ute can hold 800 items which is equivalent to an $80 refund. “We had to be resourceful and strategic given the parameters of the trip,” Mr Laube said. “It was an amazing concept and

challenging given the dynamics and different personalities.” Compounding their difficulties was the constant 37-39 degree heat and the effects of radiant heat caused by the bitumen road. The men’s goal was to collect 100,000 recyclable items, which they achieved on 20 September, earning them $10,000. On the way they stopped at such tourist stop overs as Daley Waters and Uluru and, later, in Darwin at the Beachfront Hotel. Mr Laube gave talks on their project along the way and held question-and-

answer sessions to packed houses to highlight their message. “People clapped and cheered us,” he said. “If they know you are putting yourself out they will, too.” A “horrific” experience was discovering huge piles of burnt plastic and household waste at semi-official roadside tips. The rubbish had been collected by contractors from roadside bins where, presumably, road-users had placed it thinking they were doing the right thing. Instead of being recycled the waste was dumped in slit trenches and set alight. Roadhouses also burnt their

plastic rubbish rather than carting it to recycling depots. At one stop the men were able to salvage 4500 unburnt waste items from these tips and deposit them later – collecting $450 in 90 minutes. The men found the complacency with which people discarded recyclable waste soul-destroying. “They are given polystyrene-packaged food at roadhouses which goes straight into the bins and is then burnt at the tip,” Mr Laube said. “We found hundreds of complementary water bottles with only a sip taken out before it was dumped. “There must be hundreds of these wasted every day and the state’s environment minister must know about it: it needs to be addressed.” Lots of people asked the men why they bothered with the litter-clean-up project in the first place. “We did it to prove a point,” Mr Laube said. “Coming back we drove south along the Stuart Highway and the litter was just as bad as it had been on our way up. “We had thought that if people saw the roadside clean they wouldn’t throw litter but, no, they still did. They must have a way of justifying it in their minds.” Mornington Peninsula road users must think along similar lines: Mr Laube said he collected 178 plastic waste items in long grass along one side of a 500-metre stretch of Bentons Rd, Mornington, last week.

NEWS DESK Mobile priorities

Peace talks

FLINDERS MP Greg Hunt says mobile phone “black spots” at Red Hill and Shoreham are “one step closer” to being fixed. He said the two areas are named as priorities on the federal government’s latest list of 106 black spot areas. “It’s fantastic to see that our community of Flinders is one step closer to receiving new and improved mobile coverage. I call on the telecommunications companies to give us their best tenders to deliver coverage to our area,” Mr Hunt said. The government expects the tender process for new telecommunications towers to be finalised by the end of the year, with their construction to start early in 2018. Meanwhile, Telstra says it has boosted mobile capacity to better cope with network demand over the coming holidays at St Andrew’s, Portsea, Safety Beach and Sorrento.Upgrades to 4GX that bring faster speed to customers have also been completed at Mornington, Mt Martha, St Andrew’s Beach, Tootgarook, Mt Eilza and Hastings. Telstra’s area general manager Loretta Willaton said the capacity and 4GX upgrades “will relieve summer holiday anxiety and keep customers connected”. “Social media plays a big role in how Victorian’s plan their holiday, with half of us researching our destination on social media and 41 per cent choosing where to go based on an online photo or recommendation,” Ms Willaton said. “That connection with social media continues while we’re way, with 70 per cent of us checking in to see what family and friends are up to and 42 per cent sharing a photo in order to inspire some holiday jealousy.”

MORE than 300 people are expected to attend a symposium next month at the Baitul Salam Mosque, Langwarrin to explain that “Islam’s teachings” have no links to terrorism. The event is being run by the Victorian chapter of the Ahmadiyya Muslim Community Australia to promote “peace and unity between all people”. The Langwarrin mosque is regarded as the largest in the state and Sunday 3 December will be the second annual event of its type at the mosque. Imam Syed Wadood Janud said the symposium’s theme “World crisis and the pathway to peace” will “focus on reaffirming that Islam is a religion of peace at a time when rising extremism and nationalism are escalating in the world”. The keynote address will be presented by the Ahmadiyya community’s national president and grand imam Inam-ul-Haq Kauser. “This symposium was launched in 2003 by His Holiness, Hazrat Mirza Masroor Ahmad, the fifth Khalifa and leader of the global Ahmadiyya Muslim Community, who is based in London, in response to growing extremism in Europe and around the world. The message is just at pertinent today as it was in 2003,” Imam Janud said. “Today, no part of the world is safe from the threat of terrorism and extremism. Australia too is not safe. “We are passing through very difficult times where the name of Islam is being used to conduct terrorism. As Ahmadi Muslims, we want to promote the true and real message of Islam. We want to inform all Australians that Islam’s teachings have no connection with violence and disorder that we see in the world today.” The Ahmadiyya Muslim Community was founded in 1889, and claims “membership exceeding tens of millions” across 200 countries. It sees itself as “the leading Islamic organisation to categorically reject terrorism in any form” and is the only Islamic organisation to endorse a separation of mosque and state.

Award for slain jeweller Stephen Taylor steve@mpnews.com.au AN “emotional and proud” Bridget O’Toole found it hard to describe her feelings after accepting the Star of Courage medal on behalf of her murdered husband, Hastings jeweller Dermot O’Toole. The honour was awarded by the Governor Linda Dessau at Government House on Friday 17 November which she attended with her sons Christian, Dale and Trent and Christian’s wife Sally. Dale had flown in from New Zealand for the presentation. The Star of Courage is awarded for acts of conspicuous courage in circumstances of great peril and is the second highest Australian bravery award. Ms O’Toole is clearly still grieving for the man who laid down his life for her in a botched armed robbery attempt at their High St jewellery store in July 2013. Mr O’Toole, 64, was stabbed by Gavin Perry, 27, after the parolee had attacked Ms O’Toole and thrown her into a glass cabinet before attempting to rob them. When her husband rushed into the store to defend her Perry turned on him and they struggled. Perry knocked him down and then aimed the killer blows with a 20cm carving knife. Her husband’s last words to her were to call an ambulance as he had been stabbed. Perry was jailed for 27 years for the murder and two armed robberies on businesses in Cranbourne. The Government House presentation touched her heart. “Of course, it was a really lovely day and turned out well,” she said. “We are really honoured that he’s to be remembered in this way, but I am not sure how I feel.” Ms O’Toole, who now lives at Lynbrook,

BRIDGET and Dermott O’Toole

described her husband as a “really brave man”. “We have been through four years and four months of hell since that day and nothing will ever make up for it.” The couple had been married 41 years. The sense of ceremony and grand occasion at the presentation touched her family’s hearts. The Star of Courage medal came in its own box with Mr O’Toole’s name engraved on the medal as well as a lapel star pin. A large velvet folder in her seat pocket contained a certificate from the Governor-General Sir Peter Cosgrove signed under the authority of the Queen which commended Mr O’Toole’s “conspicuous courage by his actions” during the tragic event. Life will go on but the memories of the love she feels for her slain husband will go on forever. “There is no real sense of closure,” Ms O’Toole said. “I’m just very emotional as he should have been there to accept the award himself; it’s just sad that it had to be awarded posthumously. “Dermot would have been so humbled by all of this,” she said. “He was devoted to me and his family and would do anything for us. “He loved us and we loved him dearly. We miss him so much.”

LETTERS Monumental fraud

‘No’ vote fears

I have found out the hard way that there are some unscrupulous stonemasons who prey on grieving, vulnerable families when it comes to choosing a monument for their loved one that has passed away. I chose a particular stonemason because we saw his work at the Dromana cemetery. We made contact in May and he came to our house and presented as being personable and sympathetic. We signed a contract and had a verbal agreement that the monument would be completed just before my late wife’s birthday (roughly 19 weeks from the signing of the contract). I was to pay in three instalments: up to now I have paid $4600. The trouble started after payment of the second instalment. He would commit to a start date and then, without explanation, wouldn’t show up. He does not reply to text or phone calls and I have since discovered that he does not have premises to work from, but rents space from another stonemason. Up until today, my wife’s monument is not completed. What I have to look at every day that I go to her grave is a hole in the ground covered by a sheet of ply board with three witches hats sitting on top. I have been informed the stonemason has changed his company name and now have to engage a reputable stonemason to complete the work that this so-called stone mason reneged on. My advice to anyone that is getting a monument for their loved one is to check out the bona fides of the person they’re engaging. Check with the Dromana Cemetery Trust at the Mornington Peninsula Shire offices or contact the stonemasons’ association to see if they are in fact who they say they are. As for me, I have to write off $4600 and start again. Be very careful. John Cain, McCrae

Perhaps the federal government may now be able to settle down to running this country in the wake of a most physically and socially aggressive action on the “Yes” to the same sex marriage survey, with major corporate funding, and even threats to smaller businesses. Even sporting gurus got in on the act. This will not be a good look for the yet unborn generations if and when they study Australian politics. However, in a TV broadcast this past week, there was an interview being conducted with two swarthy, middle-aged men, possibly guardians of a child as one was holding a pale baby girl, probably about seven months old. I found some of this disturbing as to the nature of this association when we are more focused than ever on child safety. Was one of them the parent, with the child’s mother consenting? In what part of the world did this take place? My heart really went out to this little girl (made me cry actually) who in her life will never know the warmth, touch and loving care of a mother. No man can ever fill this void. It is my concern to protect the rights of children who have no voice in their own fate. Where are the militant feminists on this issue? Maureen Federico, Frankston South

Sounds of dogs The new [proposed] party house laws are welcome. Exactly the same process and law modelled on this should also be put in place regarding barking dogs. The requirement for recording barking dogs over a prolonged period makes it a frustrating, tedious process. Despite direct approach to the owners and occasional visits from rangers, we put up with two nearby neighbouring houses, each with dogs that are barkers. The dog owners seem entirely unwilling to remedy the situation, so it’s about time a more proactive approach was taken - including substantial fines and penalties. I’m sure the barking dog owners wouldn’t hesitate to complain about a party house if their peace and quiet was compromised! Neville Green, Mornington

Sounds of tractors Thank you for your sensitive handling and publishing of my piece you entitled “Shire hypocritical with help for aged” (Letters 31/10/17). The letter to the mayor, as mentioned, received an automatic reply stating that the correspondence was important and would be forwarded to the relevant department for consideration. Department? It continued: “As part of our correspondence commitment, you will receive a response from the [Mornington Peninsula] Shire within 12 work days or less”. Again that word “commitment”. They failed. Nothing has been received by post or email. We are now past the 13th work day and counting. Today a letter was sent to David Bergin (executive manager planning services) challenging and disproving things that he has written to us, such as claiming to not have sufficient evidence to issue our neighbour a prohibition notice under the Public Health and Wellbeing Act, when council has been sent dozens if not hundreds of photographs. When he and his offsider came to our house to discuss matters they were invited to see duplicates of all photos we have sent to council. They refused to see them and also refused to listen to a single sound of the many hours we have of recorded industrial and vehicular noise. Today’s letter included 21 pictures taken during October of tractors being operated next door and was sent by internal mail from the shire’s Hastings office after ensuring that it was all sighted by the attendant who signed my preprepared receipt. Name and address supplied

Mayor’s road ahead Congratulations to Colin Hampton being elected mayor of Frankston. To read his opening speech how Frankston is gearing up for possible state and federal elections, is outside his domain; it defies belief. If the mayor wants unity and respect, he must keep his views to himself. I suggest to Cr Hampton should immediately work towards a bipartisan unity within the council. All Frankston councillors must work together. Respect only comes to a healthy, honest and transparent leadership. Mayor, please lead the way forward without any political agendas. Do it for the Frankston community, not yourself. Vic Langsam, Frankston

No happy returns The government says the National Energy Guarantee will save the average household up to $115 a year after 2020. I am still waiting for my $500 savings from the elimination of the carbon tax. I sent [Flinders MP] Greg Hunt an invoice, but never received a cheque so did no bother invoicing him for subsequent years. Joe Lenzo, Safety Beach

Spare the chickens The story on ABC TV last week showing chickens being scalded to death in a Victorian abattoir shocked many viewers, but also illustrates a basic truth about animal agriculture: wherever there is exploitation for money, there will be abuse. Corporations that abuse animals are governed only by their bottom line; animal welfare will always play second fiddle. This is the way economics works, and calling for better supervision, by governments who see their role as maximising those same profits, is whistling in the wind. The only way to stop chickens being slaughtered in agony at a fraction of their potential lives, or the other shocking abuse of other animals we have witnessed repeatedly in exposes by animal activists (and never by government inspections), is to vote with our dollars. Three times daily, we can all vote to stop animal abuse by choosing to buy delicious, healthy vegan foods instead of artery-blocking animal flesh, milk and eggs.

Welcome to the Peninsula’s Best Kept Secret Festival!

BLUES AT THE BRIARS BACK FOR 2018 Fresh off the back of 2017’s epic festival, Blues At The Briars returns on February 24 for its sixth celebration of blues and roots music on the Peninsula. A combination of great music, amazing food and wine, and a dedicated children’s area make this day a must in everyone’s calendar. The Peninsula’s best kept secret keeps delivering in the amazing rural setting of the historic Briars homestead and surrounds. Bring a chair or a picnic rug and soak up the landscape and vibe while listening to the best bands from Australia and abroad. February’s festival is shaping to be the best yet. A.J. Ghent (USA) constructs an indie rock sound howling from the church to the blues. His style can be defined as fresh, nostalgic, electrifying and rootsy, fusing blues, funk, R and B, hip hop and dream pop into a genre he likes to call neo blues. Z Star Delta (UK), described as the love child of Jimmy Hendrix and Nina Simone, takes you on a personal and spiritual journey to experience her intense magic. Come and experience her live at the Briars. Blues At The Briars are also proud to announce the triumphant return of the best boogie pianist on the planet, Ben Waters (UK) joined by Derek Nash the best Sax player going around. Derek is regarded as one of the UK’s most prominent and versatile saxophonists, playing with the Jools Holland Rhythm and Blues orchestra since 2004, performing live with artists such as Eric Clapton, Paul McCartney, Amy Winehouse and many more. Along with many more homegrown bands and artists from around the country, this line up will be awesome. Keep an eye on the Facebook page and website www. bluesatthebriars.com for more artist announcements coming soon.

The team at Blues At The Briars takes great pride in showcasing not only established artists, but up-and-coming talent. The Teskey brothers who were a highlight at this years festival have not stopped touring throughout the UK and Australia, supporting such iconic acts such as Midnight Oil, Rag and Bone man and headlining in their own right. This year Blues At The Briars have pulled out all the stops with a sound and lighting upgrade so the tunes will be crisp and clear for all to enjoy. The VIP area returns with amazing food and drink packages, in a dedicated marquee where you can enjoy the show in luxury. Treat yourself this indulgence and make it a day to truly remember. Not many VIP areas have a prime view of the stage like this. Tickets are limited for the VIP marquee so get them quickly. For the younger blues lovers we have a safe area to roam and enjoy. Face painting, balloonists, and bouncy castle, with arts and craft to keep them amused. If you are looking for somewhere fun and funky to take the family look no further. Children under 14 are free! Entry costs are kept as low as possible to enable everyone access, with disabled access, easy parking close to the gate and friendly volunteer staff to ensure your experience is enjoyable and hassle free. A fully stocked bar with very reasonable nonfestival prices will be open all day. Blues At The Briars 2018 is a special, immersive, family-friendly experience that will stay with you long after the last notes have been played. www.bluesatthebriars.com

100 YEARS AGO THIS WEEK...

Telephone for police station under consideration Compiled by Brodie Cowburn CR MASON drew attention to the disturbance that had occurred at Frankston on the previous Saturday, and the necessity that existed for additional police protection and also the installing of telephone service at the police station. It was false economy not to have the telephone at police station. The lack of it allowed men to get 50 miles away before the police could be informed, and cost the country pounds to effect their capture. He moved that the Council feel they have implicit confidence in the Officer in Charge, that he is tactful and one of the most efficient officers ever in Frankston. Cr Clements seconded the motion, and it was carried unanimously. *** MRS E. Henderson and family desire to thank their many friends for kind expressions of sympathy, letters and cards received during their recent sad bereavement in the death of their beloved son and brother Pte D. Henderson, killed in action somewhere in France, 20th September 1917. *** MRS Dent and family desire to thank their many friends for visits of sympathy and cards received during their recent sad bereavement in the death of their dearly beloved son and brother, Pte Alfred James Dent killed in action some where in France on the 16th Oct 1917 *** Vast Plans of Y.M.C.A. AN indication of the vast projects of the Y.M.C.A is given in a message just received by the National Com

mitte if that organisation in Australia from Dr John R Nott, General Secretary of the International Committee of Y.M.C.A.’s at New York. “We have been deeply impressed, writes Dr Mott, by the remarkable service you have rendered in Australia to your troops overseas. The example of what you have done has not been without its influence on our plans. At the recent meeting of our National War Council where we reported your work, it, was decided that we raise and spend before July 1st, 1918, a fund of about £7,296,000. This will be used in furthering the Association work in the American Army, in the armies of Russia, France, Italy, and other allies and in the prisoner of war camps.” *** THE Wattle Club Committee most heartily thank all those who assisted in every possible way to give the visiting French soldiers a good time on Tuesday last. It was a huge undertaking to prepare luncheon and afternoon tea for 1.000 people, but the undoubted success proves once more, the splendid unity and sympathy which exists in the Frankston people. *** DURING shunting operations at Seaford on Thursday afternoon two empty trucks attached to the 9 a.m. Melbourne train to Frankston were derailed. Passenger traffic was in no way interfered with, however, and practically no damage was done to either rolling stock or permanent way. The train was delayed at Seaford

for about two hours, consequent upon the mishap. *** THE Royal Life Saving Club will visit Frankston next Sunday afternoon to give a demonstration of life saving with the object of opening a club at Frankston. *** MR L R N. Utber has been appointed a Commissioner of the Supreme Court of the State of Victoria for taking affidavits. *** A PUBLIC meeting is called by the President of the Shire at the Frankston Mechanics Institute on Friday evening next to consider the preservation of the late ‘Hermits” place of residence. *** A CORDIAL invitation is extended to all who are interested in Red Cross work, to attend a “Snowball Tea” at Mrs Moloney’s Pier Hotel, on Wednesday afternoon next. *** VERY necessary improvements have been made recently at Langwarrin Camp. A fine gateway now marks the entrance, which gives to the camp an appearance of stability and permanence. The carriage way has been greatly improved, fresh beds and lawns have been added to the gardens. The addition of a fish pond and fountain gives pleasure to sightseers, while a greenhouse will be much appreciated this summer. *** Shire news FOR the position of ranger at Somer-

ville the application of C.E Gumm was accepted, duties to start from 1st December, on the motion of Cr Murray, seconded by Cr Longmuir. Cr Clements reported that he has made inquiries with regard to vacancies in the Benevolent Asylum, and was informed that there were not at present but there would he one in a few days: - It was decided that Cr Longmuir interview the old man Holman, who is a Crimean veteran and see if he is willing to go to the asylum. F. H. Wells, ranger at Frankston, complaining that a young man named Smith rescued two horses from him which he was taking to the pound on 15th November—Cr Clements moved and Cr Mason seconded that the Secretary take proceedings against Smith for rescuing the horses. Carried. Cr Murray complained of the damage done to roads and brides by the pine carters. He estimated it would cost £200 or £300 to repair them and he moved that an inspection be made and damages assessed wit a view to some action being taken. Seconded by Cr Unthank and carried. *** A CONCERT in aid of the proposed Methodist Church building, to be erected on a central site given by Mrs Goodson, was held in the School, on Friday evening, November 23rd. Rev E. Tonkin of Frankston was chairman. The programme was contributed to by visiting and local performers, all the items of which appeared to be appreciated by an audience which,

considering the threatened weather, was highly satisfactory. *** THE Social Club held another Novelty Night on Saturday, which was well attended. \ The lady’s prize was won by Miss J Ross and Mr Sullivan was the successful gentleman. Next Wednesday, 5th December, Brigadier General Williams will unveil the School Honor Roll and name the avenue where the trees are planted in honor of our brave soldiers. A good attendance is expected. We hope that all the friends of the soldiers will come along and make this day a success. *** WANTED Horse, suitable for orchard and General work. Trial required. Apply J. SMITH, Mt. Eliza. *** WANTED to buy Large pine trees, cut or standing, highest prices. E. MACPHERSON, Warburton St., East Brunswick. Phone Bwk. 795. *** ALEX Scott & Co. Pty.

THE MEANING OF EXISTENCE... AND OTHER SHORT STORIES

A Story You Couldn’t Makeup By Stuart McCullough I AM somewhat plain looking. Don’t bother trying to convince me I’m wrong – I know it’s true. I could try and deny it but my features have never quite hung properly on my face. They’re like a painting after an earth tremor. I’m more your character actor than leading man. Not that I always knew it. For years I thought every camera I ever came across was defective in that they all consistently failed to render what I regarded as an appropriate likeness. Until the somewhat appropriately titled ‘ugly truth’ dawned on me – these cameras aren’t broken, this is what I really look like. The only thing worse than being kind of plain looking is the tyranny of acne. It is something of a cosmic joke that just at the moment you become interested in others is the moment your facial pores stage a full-blown insurrection. Like most teenagers, I despaired at the dermatological mutiny to which I was subjected and prayed daily for some kind of miracle. Every potential cure was worth trying. From old-wives tales to potion-spruiking carnival huckster; I was up for just about anything. I slept with the window open, even in winter, because someone told me it would be good for my complexion. I’m not sure it made my face any fresher but it certainly gave me a healthy respect for frostbite. I drank a tall glass of water every morning having heard that this would help cleanse my system. My father suggested drinking the water that had been used to boil the silverbeet, but forgot to tell

me that I should let it cool down first. I’ll say this much – you’re unlikely to be worried about blemishes when you’ve got third-degree burns on your chin. They would arrive, unwelcome and uninvited. There was nothing worse than waking up on a school day and sensing that a pimple that, much like the Great Wall of China and Chadstone Shopping Centre, could be seen

from space now possessed your face. If my brothers and sisters avoided eye contact and kept as far away as possible as we passed in the hallway, I knew it was going to be an absolute whopper. The moment of truth would ultimately arrive when I had to look at myself in the mirror and ask, just as Hamlet did in his ubiquitous soliloquy; ‘To squeeze or not to squeeze.

That is the question.’ I guess I became accustomed to it, never thinking that it would one day end. And then, without warning, I got a glimpse of a world that was completely blemishfree. I discovered makeup. I did what any self-respecting teenager with low levels of confidence would do under the circumstances – I entered a public speaking competition because my teacher suggested it might be a good idea and I didn’t want to upset anyone. I was, naturally, terrified. But although the speaking bit seemed like an out of body experience, the writing part of it was kind of enjoyable. I even managed to win a prize. Which, in turn, led to an offer to perform my speech on ‘Behind the News’, an educational news program for school kids. It was my first and, frankly, last time in a television studio. I was a bundle of nerves – making me easy to transport – and before I really knew what was happening, I was sitting in a chair having makeup applied to my face. I could scarcely believe the transformation I was witnessing. Teenage acne disappeared as my pale complexion was replaced by something very close to ‘swarthy’. I looked like one of George Hamilton’s nephews. The filming took an hour or so and as I stepped away from the bright lights of the studio I was intercepted by the makeup artist who offered to remove the brown, gunky veneer that had been so expertly applied to my face. Having glimpsed the art of the possible, there was no way I was

going to give up my new blemishfree existence. I felt confident, I felt self-assured. I even felt a little bit handsome. Instead of having my face cleaned up, I waved the make-up artist away and headed back to school. My classmates were impressed. Or, at least, I think they were. As I strolled around the schoolyard, they laughed and pointed at me while singing songs in my honour before eventually burning me in effigy on the oval. It was the first time I’d ever felt the admiration of my peers. For the rest of the day, I sat up straight in the classroom. I feared nothing, not even Maths B, which was incredible because I really wasn’t very good at Maths A, much less the rest of the alphabet. But it was too good to last. I went to bed that night without the window open, having not drunk the water that the silverbeet had just been boiled in and felt like the King of the World. It wasn’t to last. As I awoke from my slumber the following morning, I lifted my face from the pillow only to discover that the pillowcase looked as if it had been caked in mud. On this occasion, not only did my siblings avoid eye contact, a couple of them shrieked in horror as I made my way towards the bathroom. The mirror confirmed the worst. I was back to my pale, plain self. Perhaps it was for the best – I’d already ruined a pillowcase. I had to face up to the truth. stuart@stuartmccullough.com

Foon ton saves the Dogs PROVINCIAL

By IT Gully MORNINGTON star Matt Foon single-handedly has Sorrento in all sorts of bother after the opening day of round six in Mornington Peninsula Cricket Association Provincial cricket. The Doggies batted first in ideal conditions after winning the toss but the top order collapsed and the visi-

tors were quickly on the back foot at 3/17. However, with his side in deep trouble, Foon strode to the crease and with the early support of keeper Charlie Parker, regained the ascendancy for their team. Whilst Parker only contributed 36, he did help the score beyond 100 before departing. Foon, however, took complete control, blasted 11 fours and a six and

finished unbeaten on 116. Nick Johnson was able to hang around long enough to help his teammate to the magical three figures, as the Dogs posted a competitive score of 206. With plenty of overs left in the day (21), it was important for Sorrento to survive and try and gain the upper hand for day two. That didn’t happen. The Sharks lost Kane Gordon (1), Tom Clarke (6) and Jedd Falck (0) to

be 3/30 at stumps. Mt Eliza has given Langwarrin some work to do on day two of their clash after scoring 207. The Mounties batted first and a number of players got starts. Justin Grant top scored with 58, Tim Clarke hit 38 and Ben Tracy was run out for 35. Matt Prosser was again the chief wicket-taker for the Kangas with 3/50 from 18 overs and Travis Campbell

snared 2/33 from 13 overs. Peninsula Old Boys have set Pearcedale a total of 217 for victory in their match at Tractor Park. The Old Boys hit 8/216 in their 80 overs, Tom LaBrooy top scoring with 60, Dylan O’Malley hitting 39 and Hugh Peacock 38. Pearcedale’s Chris Dew was the best of the Dales’ bowlers with 3/64 from 19.2 overs, while Shayne Gillings picked up 2/19 from nine overs.

Ridge dominate Eagles PENINSULA

By IT Gully MAIN Ridge is just six runs away from victory in its MPCA Peninsula clash against Somerville. The Eagles have been a major disappointment this season and that continued on Saturday at the magnificent Ditterich Reserve in Main Ridge. Winning the toss and batting first, the Eagles were bundled out for just 172 on the small deck. Had it not been for a wagging tail, the Eagles would have been lucky to push past 120. Jayde Herrick scored 31 at the top of the innings, Bailey White scored 25, Matt Eager 24 and Sean Parker 21. Sam Lyons was superb with the ball again for the Ridge with 3/34 from 16 overs while Jack Banks snared 2/10 and Luke Collins 2/53. Red Hill has left Long Island with some tough work with the bat after scoring 5/221 on Saturday. Riley Shaw and Simon Dart each scored 91 to help the Hillmen to a more than competitive total in a shortened day of 66.5 overs. Skipper Dart faced 160 balls for his

91 with 11 fours, while Shaw faced 147, went to the rope 10 times and over it on one occasion. Andrew Tweddle picked-up three of the five wickets, snaring 3/41 from 12 overs, while Stu Swift picked-up 2/34. Pines has the upper hand against Flinders heading into day two of their match at Eric Bell Reserve. The Pythons batted first and thanks to a glorious unbeaten century from Nick Wilcox (104), were able to post a strong total of 6/259. Jack Pearce-Stirling was a wonderful support for Wilcox with 51 while Chris Bartczak opened with 32. The evergreen Shark Dwayne Field bowled 28 overs for Flinders for a return of 4/67, while Neil Barfuss bowled 22 overs for a return of 2/77. Delacombe Park is in the box seat against Moorooduc after openers Jon Guthrie and Nick Christides set-up the monster total of 7/324. Christides smacked eight fours and two sixes as he hit 70 of the opening stand total of 96. Guthrie went on to make 77 while Ricky Ramsdale played his best innings in a while with 76.

Wickets fall at Hastings DISTRICT

By IT Gully ROSEBUD and Hastings are locked in an intriguing MPCA District battle after 11 wickets fell on the opening day of their clash at Thomas Barclay Reserve. The Buds batted first after winning the toss but other than skipper Billy Quigley, there was little resistance in the order. Quigley scored 48 at the top of the innings while Janaka Kumarage debuted with 27 for the Buds and showed signs that he is only going to get better. Ryan McNamara was on fire for the Blues, bowling 11.1 over and finishing with 5/34, while Isuru Dias sent down 27 overs and collected 4/36 in a sensational performance which also came with 12 maidens. Chasing 155 for victory, Hastings had to face the final nine overs of the day. It lost Rob Hearn for five, courtesy of Pat Nagel rattling his stumps. The Blues will resume at 1/20 this Saturday, however, given Hearn is in the sheds and the batting has been brittle at best this season, 154 should be enough for the Buds to defend. Seaford Tigers has challenged

Rye to score 201 runs for victory in their match at RJ Rowley Reserve. The Tigers made 8/200 from their 80 overs, Anthony Joel top scoring with 42, Dave Roach hitting 39, David James 31 and Luke Chevalier 24. Whilst the Tigers batted well, Rye’s Zac Stephenson was outstanding with the ball, claiming 7/72 from 26 overs. Matt Whelan bowled 34 overs for a return of 0/78. The Demons’ bowling was tight and it has given them every opportunity to challenge for the victory. Seaford has already begun its chase against Heatherhill after rolling the visitors for 190 in 63.3 overs. The Tigers will resume on 0/12 after rain cut day one short, facing just four of an available 16 overs at the end of the day. Once again the tail wagged for the Hills, Declan Albert top scoring with a well-timed 53, while Steven O’Donnell hit 35 at the top of the order. In the final match, Baden Powell has set Mt Martha a total of 265 for victory after being bowled out for 264.

Cougars are on top SUB-DISTRICT

By IT Gully CARRUM Downs has given Ballam Park a challenge in its Sub District clash at Ballam Park. The Cougars batted the entire day before the rains came after 69.4 overs had been bowled, finishing the day at 8/204. Ryan Lynch top scored for the visitors with 56, Leon McConnell hit 33, Nathan Lynch 27 and Joel Williams finished unbeaten on 40 when rain interrupted play. Marc Blume was the pick of the bowlers for Ballam Park with 3/39 from 17 overs, Justin Moore claimed 2/54 from 19

overs and Daniel Edwards-Fisk snared 2/33 from 15 overs. Balnarring limped to 175 in 70 overs against Tootgarrok. The Saints got away to a shaky start before Lachlan Barton steadied the ship with 52 in the middle order, while skipper Mal Coutts hit 31. Ben King, who has been dominant with the ball all season for Balnarring, came to the crease with the bat and hit a very timely 25. In reply, Tootgarook is 0/7. In other Sub District matches, Carrum was bowled out for 215 against Dromana and Tyabb has set Boneo 280 for victory after scoring 6/279..

Elliott signs up for fourth straight season SOCCER

By Craig MacKenzie LUCAS Elliott is just a fortnight old but Mornington fans owe the infant a debt of gratitude for the part he played in his father re-signing with the club last week. Stevie Elliott is a class act, one of the finest central defenders outside NPL ranks and for the past two months the word was that his switch to Langwarrin was all but done and dusted. Until last Thursday when the 29-year-old Englishman ended a 45-minute meeting with Mornington gaffer Adam Jamieson and assistant coach Dale White by re-committing to the club for a fourth straight season. “At the back end of last season I was out of the team and we needed to clear the air,” Elliott said. “I was honest with ‘Jamo’ and he was honest with me and in the end all I’ve known is Mornington and I didn’t know whether it would be a bit weird me playing elsewhere. “Langwarrin never actually put an offer down but there was a lot of conversation. “I was almost in limbo there for a while because although I believed that I could make the step up (to NPL) I didn’t think I could commit to the three or four times a week that they’d want you in. “I felt it was unfair to my partner (Sarah) and my new son to not be around for that length of time.” Season 2017 was far from plain

sailing for Elliott who struggled to overcome a medial ligament strain incurred in a round 13 clash at Elwood Park against St Kilda. “I went to run the ball out of play in the last few minutes when one of their players came in to the side of my hip and pushed my knee out and strained the medial,” Elliott said. “It was frustrating and it sort of epitomised the season for me. “We’d started off with a whole bunch of new players and it was pretty

unsettling when players were injured and Simon Webster retired. “When I did come back the boys were doing well and you don’t expect to walk back into a winning side but I was very frustrated. “Coming off the bench against Caulfield and scoring the winner was pretty good but missing out on the derby against Langwarrin the following week was the low point. “I had to question whether or not my heart was in it and I’ll admit that I

started wondering whether Mornington was for me.” If Elliott had any lingering doubts they were erased at last week’s meeting when Jamieson and White outlined their plans for 2018. “They ran through a list of players they’ve spoken to and it sounds exciting. “If we give it a good crack I don’t see why we can’t go all the way next year.” Elliott became the 13th player to sign on for next season following in the footsteps of English import Max Etheridge, Sam Scott, Sammy Orritt, Kris McEvoy, Jack Truelove, Josh Valadon, Keegan Ziada, Jamie Cumming, Craig Smart, Charlie Parker, Aaron Root and Stefan Soler. “We needed to have a chat and lay everything on the table and make sure we go after some unfinished business,” Jamieson said. “Stevie said Mornington soccer club is his home and that’s why he wanted to stay with us. “A fit Stevie Elliott is just about the best defender in the league.” Elliott has won two championships in his three seasons with Mornington. Hailing from Brighton on England’s south coast he played with clubs in Lewes and Hastings before joining Eastbourne Town. He arrived in Melbourne in November 2014 and rode his bicycle down to Dallas Brooks Park to check out the local club.

He was given the thumbs up to train and offered terms after just two sessions. His impact was immediate. He won the players’ player of the year and best and fairest awards in his first season as Mornington captured the first of backto-back titles in State 1 South-East. “I pretty much hit the ground running when I first came out here and that’s what I need to do again,” said Elliott. “I need to have a good pre-season and if I’m fit I’ve got no doubts that Mornington will see that same Steve Elliott again.” Mornington could make another key signing this week with a leading NPL player among the club’s targets. Last week the club announced the appointment of Serhat Ozenir as technical director. Ozenir has an AFC A licence and has been involved with both men’s and women’s soccer at junior and senior levels and has had stints at Monash Uni, Sandringham, Dingley Stars, Brighton, Beaumaris and Eltham. Meanwhile, new Baxter senior coach Francis Beck continues to oversee an influx of newcomers with Langwarrin striker Jack Thornton and Mornington pair, striker Mick Richardson and midfielder Jack Dempsey, training at Baxter Park last week. Beck expects some players from Seaford at Baxter training this week as his rebuilding program with the senior squad gains momentum.

Langwarrin’s under-age NPL squads for 2018 SOCCER

By Craig MacKenzie LANGWARRIN has finalised its underage squads for its inaugural season in the second tier of Victoria’s National Premier League competition. The Lawton Park outfit attracted triallists from such distant climes as far north Queensland with three Cairns teenagers from Leichhardt Lions FC getting the nod to join Kevin “Squizzy” Taylor’s under-20 squad. Taylor is a former Seaford United senior coach who was appointed coach of Bentleigh Greens’ under-20s in late 2014 and guided the youngsters to the 2015 NPL reserves championship. “I’m very happy with the squad we have put together at Langy. They are a very talented group, all technically sound,” Taylor said. “We have a good spread of ages, the youngest player being 15 while the oldest turns 20 next year. “I think the Greens’ squad was a little more experienced at this level, but player for player we aren’t far behind. “I think we’ll be very competitive and I expect several of them to be pushing to play senior football in 2018.” The club best represented among the successful triallists throughout the age groups is Mornington with 22 players. Morwell-based Gippsland FC is well represented with six successful triallists, five in Michael Vanderzvet’s under-16 squad. The season kicks-off in February. Here are the squads with previous club in brackets (note that the under-12s will field two teams): UNDER 12s GOALKEEPERS: Caleb Gray (Langwarrin), Angus Morrison (Mt Eliza).

High school teacher triumphs in Auckland By Ben Triandafillou CARRUM DOWNS Secondary College teacher Matthew Davy, of Mt Eliza, has broken his personal best marathon run by 20 seconds to take out the 2017 ASB Auckland Marathon. Passing up the Melbourne Marathon due to sickness, Davy switched up his training program to target the Auckland Marathon two weeks later on Sunday 29 October. With an all-the-way victory, Davy had to overcome some serious cramps in his hamstrings as well as a fastfinishing Josh Maisey, of Auckland, to take out his biggest marathon victory to date by seven seconds. Davy said there was a fair bit of emotion as he crossed the finish line in first place. “I ran by myself until the end and it ended up being pretty close,” he said. “You start thinking a bit negative as you get further into the run, especially as I was getting cramps in the hamstring and had to stop and stretch them out. “To turn that around and get a win

was something special.” In the build-up to the 42.2km marathon, Davy said he was going for about 12 runs per week and was accumulating as much as 185km in doing so. “You really need to be motivated and manage your time well to fit the training schedule around school time,” he said. “You get up at 6am in the morning and then need to have the motivation to go out again after school. “Time management is a massive key and still making sure you get enough recovery and are eating the right foods to prepare you for your next run.” Davy who is also the captain of the Frankston Athletic Club’s cross-country team said he definitely wasn’t lacking in support. “You feel like you’re running with a few others by your side and you don’t want to let them down as they have been there helping you out and supporting you,” he said. “Everyone has been really supportive of the whole process.” It didn’t take long before Davy was back out and competing in another en-

durance event as he entered the 6.7km Arthurs Seat Challenge two weeks later. Davy finished just over 20 seconds behind fellow Frankston Athletic Club member Dane Verwey and made it back-to-back second placings having finished runners-up last year as well. “The crowd support was fantastic at Arthurs Seat,” Davy said. “It’s a great community event that raises awareness and funds for the fit to drive program and it has a great message which relates to the event. “Both the Auckland Marathon and the Arthurs Seat Challenge are great events and I encourage anybody to go for it and have a crack at them.” Davy said there are now a couple more marathons early next year that he might target but he has his eyes set on the Berlin Marathon in September next year. “The world record was run there and it’s known as the fastest course around the world so I want to give it a go and hopefully get a big personal best there,” he said.

Wheelchair tennis player national champ By Ben Triandafillou JUNIOR wheelchair tennis player Riley Dumsday, of Mornington, has been victorious at the Australian National Junior Wheelchair Championships just one year after making his debut in the tournament last year. Dumsday, 12, competed in the under18s mixed singles at the National Tennis Centre in Melbourne over the weekend of Friday 17 November. He was just getting used to the sport when he entered the tournament last year but felt much more comfortable on court this time in as he cruised through the opening rounds of his round-robin pool in straight sets.

Dumsday then went on to fight out a three-hour grand final against a familiar Melbourne rival, Finn Broadbent, which he won 6-1 4-6 6-4 to be crowned the Australian national champion. The Elite Tennis Academy star returned home with two trophies from the Queensland Wheelchair Tennis Open earlier this year and said the national championships was one of his biggest wins so far. “The grand final was very nerve-racking but it was still very exciting,” he said. “I was tired and hot afterward but I’m really proud of myself and how I played.” Dumsday said he is now looking forward to the Melbourne Open in Craigie-

burn in January next year where one of his idols, Alfie Hewett (world no. 2 singles wheelchair tennis player), is likely to attend. “The older guys are always there cheering us juniors on but he (Hewett) wasn’t at the nationals as he lives in the UK,” Dumsday said. “He’s a bit of an idol of mine and has the same disease as me (Perthes’ disease). He’s coming to the Melbourne Open which is an ITF ranking tournament so it can help with my ranking points as well.” Dumsday will have a chance to further increase his ranking at the Melbourne Open as he currently sits at 17th in the junior world singles rankings.

will now be joining the Victorian side on Saturday 2 December. Molly just missed out on making the under-12 girls team last year but after tying for second at the qualifiers, she will now join the Victorian team of four for the week-long event. Molly’s father, Craig, said she was really excited to make the team, especially after beginning with a triple bogey on the first hole. “She has had her heart set on making the side for a while so she stoked to have made it this year,” he said. “She’s a really hard worker and once you start training and having a hit, you

have to try and drag her away at the end as she just wants to hit more. “She predominantly works on her short game but she’s also a pretty good swimmer and also plays netball, so she has a lot on.” When it comes to inspiration, Craig said she models her game off Jason Day but it’s the lesser-known Charlotte Thomas who she truly aspires to be like. “I have coached Charlotte for about the past 10 years and now she (Molly) wants to be just like her,” he said. Molly has begun to make her way through the grades and earlier this year
