Highway horror

FIVE people were taken to hospital Friday as a result of two accidents on Nepean Highway, one at Dromana and the other at Mt Martha. The Dromana smash between a utility and a four-wheel drive near the freeway off-ramp about 7am resulted in a man in his 20s being airlifted to the Alfred Hospital with serious leg and internal injuries. A man in his 50s man was taken by ambulance to the Royal Melbourne Hospital. About 2.30pm, a car veered of Nepean Highway into a power pole. A girl, 14, was trapped in the car for more than an hour before being airlifted to the Royal Children’s Hospital with leg injuries. Two other occupants of the car were taken to Frankston Hospital. Police said five teenagers were in the car when it hit the pole. None were thought to have life-threatening injuries. The highway was closed for several hours while the power pole was stabilised.

Taking control of pets By Keith Platt WITHIN the next four years only dogs and cats licensed for breeding will be able to escape being de-sexed on the Mornington Peninsula. A move to make it mandatory for dogs and cats to be de-sexed is among changes recommended to the shire’s Domestic Animal Management Plan. Neutering all pets is one of the sug-

gestions being recommended to councillors to avoid community concern about the number of unclaimed stray dogs and cats being euthanised. The problem is made worse because most dogs and cats held at the pound are not microchipped or registered, making it difficult, if not impossible, to track down their owners. In a report to council, environment protection and community safety of-

ficer Claire Smith said 10 per cent of calls to the shire were pet related. “Hot topics� included aggressive dogs, barking dogs, dogs on beaches, the need for more leash-free areas and calls for rangers to collect nuisance cats trapped in cages supplied by the shire. Cases of problem pets outlined by Ms Smith included six reports involving two Staffordshire bull terriers at

Sorrento, the most serious of which caused “significant fear and trauma� to two women whose Maltese terriers were attacked. The owner of the attacking dogs was eventually fined $2200 plus $5064 costs. In another incident, a “pointer type dog� collided with a cyclist, who spent six days in hospital. The dog’s owners were fined $1600 with $214 costs.

They face further costs in separate County Court cases being brought against them by the injured rider for $12,500 damage to his bike and equipment. A “good news� report detailed how rangers were able to track down the owner of a straying Jack Russell terrier, even though it had been microchipped in Germany. Continued Page 6

Red tape rains on historic home By Neil Walker IAN Armstrong is a man who knows the importance of preserving the nation’s historic assets and how individuals can do their bit to contribute to this important work. The Mornington resident is an avid collector of antiques and fine art and a Commonwealth-approved valuer of cultural heritage. He is the owner of Sandringhambased business Armstrong Collections and often does work on behalf of the National Trust of Australia to assess the value of private art and antiques collections to be donated to the nation. Satirist Barry Humphries and Olympian Cathy Freeman are just two of the high-profile Australians whose collections he has assessed. However, it was a heritage issue closer to home that left him bemused at how excessive bureaucracy can inadvertently hinder rather than help preserve historic property. Mr Armstrong received a letter in May from Mornington Peninsula Shire reminding him that he was a “key stakeholder in protecting the peninsula’s heritage” since his property at 797 Esplanade is included in the shire’s heritage protection list. The shire was seeking comment on how council’s future management of heritage places could be improved. The recent letter from the shire sparked memories of a 2011 stoush Mr Armstrong had with the council over urgent repairs needed on the leaking roof of his Mornington residence which could have effectively destroyed the house. The homeowner had to act

quickly to replace the roof but found bureaucrats seemingly determined to delay the repairs despite the urgency of the situation. A previous permit obtained to replace the roof in 2007 had lapsed and council insisted Mr Armstrong begin the application process again despite circumstances having remained the same in the intervening years. He said council threatened to sue if any repairs were carried out. “I told them I’m not going to see a heritage property destroyed since the damn thing is now leaking,” Mr Armstrong said. He went ahead with the work despite the threat of legal action “on an

emergency basis to save the property”, feeling he had no other option. Mr Armstrong said council eventually issued an updated permit at their own cost after he refused to be “put through all their hoops again”. More than $150,000 has been spent by Mr Armstrong on the restoration of 797 Esplanade. Peninsula carpenter Steven Edwards won a ‘specialist carpentry skills’ award at the Mornington Peninsula Heritage Awards in 2011 for his work during the restoration of the property. The Mornington Pensinsula Heritage Awards are “based on a strong partnership between the Mornington Peninsula

ULTIMATE ACTION TOYS www.ultimatetoys.com.au

Shire and the National Trust of Australia, through the Mornington Peninsula Branch, to recognise those in our community who have demonstrated excellence in retention, restoration and reuse of our heritage places.” The irony is not lost on Mr Armstrong. The self-described “self-made man” and advocate of “free enterprise” has a simple message for overzealous bureaucrats: don’t let “ludicrous” overregulation destroy the heritage properties regulations are supposed to protect. He completed the shire’s survey asking for feedback from heritage property owners in April. No response has yet been received.

A SPATE of thefts from cars has hit Mt Martha, prompting police to issue a warning to residents to ensure their vehicles are properly locked and valuables not left on display. Detective sergeant Rob Clark from the Mornington crime investigation unit said there had been a significant spike in the number of reports of items being stolen from cars parked at Mt Martha residences over the past two weeks “Unfortunately it’s the typical story of people not locking their vehicles properly and leaving valuable items inside, such as GPSs, cash, phone and laptops. It’s just easy pickings.” He said the culprits appeared to be young people walking around late at night. “We’d encourage anyone who might have had something taken to make sure they contact police, or if they’ve seen people late at night walking around acting suspiciously, to not hesitate to get on the phone and give us a call so we can check it out.” Contact Mornington police on 5970 4900.

No kidding in hunt for goat thief By Chris Brennan MYSTERY surrounds the â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;kidnappingâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; of two cherished young goats from a Mornington school. Hazel and Duey were stolen from their pens in the agricultural area of Padua Secondary College last weekend but were found several days later roaming in a nearby neighbourhood after having been apparently abandoned. The theft was discovered on Monday morning when teachers and students arrived at the school. The young goats had been last seen safely secured within the school grounds on Friday afternoon. Police said a cyclone fence at the rear of the school had been cut to gain entry, with evidence at the scene indicating there had been some struggle in capturing the goats. An appeal was mounted for the safe return of the popular pets, with pictures of Hazel and Duey and news of their disappearance quickly circulating via Facebook. One of the goats was found three days later eating flowers in Terrigal St, Mornington, around 7.30pm on Wednesday. The goat was collected by a local council ranger and taken to the pound before being returned to the school. The second goat was found in the front yard of a property in Exford Drive on Thursday morning and was â&#x20AC;&#x153;herdedâ&#x20AC;? back to the school by members of the public.

Both goats were reported to be uninjured and in good health. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Just prior to the goat arriving in the backyard, a witness who was visiting the address saw a white Ford BA ute with a full canopy on the back across the road,â&#x20AC;? detective senior constable Clayton Beckhouse told The News. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The driver was acting a bit suspiciously, going to the back of the ute as though he was unloading something.â&#x20AC;? Detective Beckhouse said it remained a mystery as to why the Hazel and Duey might have been removed from the school only to be later abandoned. However, despite the situation having reached a happy conclusion, a crime had been committed and police would continue to pursue the matter. â&#x20AC;&#x153;They were definitely stolen and itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s certainly a crime. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s theft - theft of livestock. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We certainly donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t get much of this sort of thing going on down here. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not unusual for dogs to be pinched, but nothing like this. â&#x20AC;&#x153;So we really donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have any idea of the motivation, whether it was a prank or someone planned to breed them or maybe even eat them. â&#x20AC;&#x153;But there were a lot of people that were very upset about this in the school community. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s just good that it ended well and the goats got home. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It shows the power of Facebook. The people who found the goat in Terrigal St put up a picture Facebook and thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s how the word got around.

Who got their goat? Hazel (brown) and Duey (white) pictures supplied

The bay’s the place for stand up competition STAND up paddlers from interstate will next month compete against their Mornington Peninsula counterparts over a weekend of downwind and short-course stand up paddle board racing. Competitions will be run from Safety Beach and Blairgowrie over the 10-11 August weekend. Last year’s inaugural event attracted competitors from NSW, South Australia and New Zealand. “The Mornington Peninsula sits between two world-class SUP racing areas – Port Phillip and Western Port – so it’s great to see some of Australia’s top paddlers supporting the event,” organiser Jeff Lim said. He said SUP racing was “going from strength to strength overseas and is rapidly growing in popularity in Australia”. On Saturday 10 August there will be a 10-kilometre downwind race from Safety Beach Sailing Club, and a family fun day and shortcourse races on Sunday at Blairgowrie Yacht Squadron. For details call Lynda Lim of Peninsula Stand Up Paddle on 5986 4557 or 0448 563 339.

Ready to race: Stand up paddlers at last year’s inaugural Mornington Peninsula event.

Shire borrows $10.8m for super costs By Mike Hast SHIRE councillors have signed off on a bank loan of $11.8 million to pay for a superannuation black hole as well as $1 million to upgrade sports pavilions. The $10.8 million superannuation shortfall in the Local Authorities Superannuation Fund was revealed last year following a review by fund trustee Vision Super. Victorian councils had to find about $400 million for the generous super

scheme for past and present employees that paid benefits no matter how the fund was doing. The Municipal Association of Victoria (MAV) said most of the shortfall occurred during the final six months of 2011 “due to investment market volatility”. The shortfall was partly due to the global financial crisis and the fund under-estimating the length of time beneficiaries were living after retirement.

The super plan for local government employees was a compulsory scheme from 1982. It was closed to new members in 1993. “Unlike other exempt public sector schemes, it must be fully funded to pay benefits owed to members now and in the future,” the MAV said last year. Mornington Peninsula Shire’s shortfall was the third call on the fund in the past decade, with the shire paying about $17 million. It had to borrow

money to pay the two previous calls. The new loan is with Commonwealth Bank of Australia for 12 months and will cost $418,000 in interest at a variable rate that is currently 3.52 per cent. In recent times the shire has paid 5.5 to 6 per cent on loans. The loan is for a year while the MAV and councils work on a long-term plan that could see the issuing of bonds to cover the huge super black hole. The shire is one of about 27 councils

collectively owing about $232 million that have borrowed from the Commonwealth to pay off super liabilities. The shire had budgeted for interest of $485,000 on the $11.8 million loan but the MAV– Commonwealth deal will save it $67,000. Now comes the huge task of working out how to pay the $400 million in a year’s time and, more crucially, any further calls from the Local Authorities Superannuation Fund.

‘Secrets’ let go without a blush

Implementation of the revamped Domestic Animal Management Plan may also lead to a crackdown on unlicensed backyard breeders and volunteers circulating photographs and details of cats being held at the pound. Ms Smith said suggested changes to the Domestic Animal Management Plan recognised the need to achieving a “reasonable balance” in issues for pet owners and non-pet owners. While fewer dogs and cats were being impounded since the plan was introduced four years ago, thousands of pets remained unregistered. While 26,000 of the shire’s estimated 27,200 dogs were registered, more than 10,000 of its 16,600 cats were not. Ms Smith said dog registrations were increasing but cat registrations had dropped by more than 8 per cent in the past four years. Calculations made using Australian Bureau of Statistics figures showed that 95.2 per cent of dogs in the shire were registered, compared to a “disappointing” 36 per cent of cats. Ms Smith said complaints about dog attacks had dropped by 6 per cent, while enforcement actions by rangers against aggressive dogs had increased 24 per cent. “The reduction in numbers of dog aggression complaints is a pleasing indication of success for the shire’s mix of education and awareness programs, plus enforcement action when appropriate,” Ms Smith stated in her report. Rangers equipped with microchip scanners and iPads were able to quickly identify stray animals and reunite them with their owners. The proportion of impounded dogs

By David Harrison Community council meeting at Rye Civic Hall, Monday 22 July. A nutritious buffet meal (not, as is usually the case, advertised on the shire website) preceded the meeting. REGULAR council watchers often see pink papers on councillors’ desks – pink denoting confidential – and wonder what is writ therein. This is the stuff watchers really want to read – but councillors would reveal it at their peril. But here was Cr David Gibb, stickler for all rules pertaining to meetings and indeed all council matters that come under his purview, complaining about the shire’s financial support for the Rosebud Kite Festival and, apparently, reading figures from the pink sheets in front of him. Mayor Lynn Bowden interrupted him to ask if this was what he was doing. Cr Gibb, a councillor since the last millennium, admitted his grievous sin without a mea culpa or even a discernible blush. Governance supremo Noel Buck watched on, mute, at this infraction. Cr Gibb continued his effort to gain another $1500 for the kites, to help balance the funding inequity relative to bashes held in Hastings and Mornington. He went back to his pink sheets and changed tactics from quoting figures to detailing percentages. The material did not seem terribly explosive in nature – perhaps much confidential material is similarly innocuous – but councils, even open and transparent ones, like to have their little secrets. Perhaps this is not the end of the matter. Council Watch has learned that not long ago new councillor Hugh

being euthanised had dropped from nearly 17 per cent in 2006/7 to just under 3 per cent last year, which meant 29 dogs and 103 cats were put down. Over the same period, the number of impounded cats being euthanised had also dropped, from 74 per cent to 21 per cent. Between 1 January and 28 May, 455 dogs had been held at the pound and 291 cats, with just nine of the cats being registered. Ms Smith said the dropping number of cat owners registering their pets “indicates a significant change with more cat owners failing to comply with legislation”. She said cats were being de-sexed before being released from the pound. The draft Domestic Animals Management Plan can be viewed at www. mornpen.vic.gov.au and at council offices and libraries. Written submissions should be sent to Melanie Davey, Private Bag 1000, Rosebud 3939 or emailed to custserv@mornpen.vic. gov.au

Fraser, barrister at law, was alleged to have committed the same offence. The infringement was considered serious enough for a meeting to be called between Cr Fraser, a lawyer hired by the shire and senior council officers, at which Cr Fraser would be properly admonished, counselled and made penitent. It did not go quite this way. Cr Fraser, the silken-tongued advocate long acquainted with writs of mandamus, certiorari and the like, was able to point out that the “confidential” paper had in fact, M’lud, not been declared confidential as required by an Act of Parliament. Case dismissed. But can Cr Gibb’s gaffe be lightly dismissed? Surely the shire now ensures that “confidential” is indeed confidential according to law. Naughty Cr Gibb – bring on the lawyers! Off with his head! *** THE meeting’s high point had come early, during Question Time, when Frederick Crump of Mornington asked why his local street clock was regularly an hour slow – a fact confirmed by Mornington councillor Bev Colomb. It will be looked at, Mr Crump was assured. But will it be fixed? The possibility that the clock had two faces, one of which might show the right time, reminded this council watcher of Henry Ford’s solution to clock-watchers in his T-model factory: have every factory clock set to a different time.

*** A PLAN to levy Hastings traders in pursuit of town centre rejuvenation – Christmas bunting and the like – brought some sharp questioning from Cr Graham Pittock and created bemusement among council officers responsible for answers. Why was it proposed to raise the levy by 5 per cent each year until 2020, Cr Pittock wanted to know. Why not raise the yearly sum by the inflation rate? Cr Frank Martin of Red Hill Ward sprang to the scheme’s defence. Having furiously tick-tacked on his calculator, he revealed that 5 per cent was an extremely fair figure, even though inflation is currently running at – and the Reserve Bank is restraining it to – about half that figure. Perhaps the battery in Cr Martin’s calculator was running at the same rate as the Mornington clock? Those of a mathematical bent can hear Cr Martin explain his sums on the recording of the meeting posted on the shire website, and check his figures. Cr Pittock’s second question: why should all traders, despite the size or street frontage of their shops, pay the same levy? It didn’t seem fair, he said, that a supermarket and, say, a hair salon up the street would pay the same. More bemusement from shire staff. The answer seemed to be that this was the easiest way to impose the levy, and, er, that’s the way we do it. Council Watch is relieved the shire has not yet thought of collecting rates by this same simplistic and inequitable one-size-fits-all method.

PENINSULA filmmakers Stuart Stanton and Adam Haywood are bringing the glamour of the drive-in to the big screen in their next project, Penny. Teaming with peninsula producers Peter Cordeux and Karen Elgar, they hope to do justice to nostalgia for the era. Set in the 1950s, Penny is the story of Timmy, a young cleaner at the drive-in, and his quest to impress dancer Penny. Aided by his friend Donna, Timmy sets out to learn how to rock ’n’ roll and win Penny’s heart. Penny is being made as a “proof of concept” short film to secure funding for a full-length feature. “Both films will provide a fantastic opportunity for peninsula talent and crew to work on a large-scale production,” Stuart Stanton said. The filmmakers hope to entice peninsula businesses to contribute to the project, “During the 1950s, drive-ins were a place where communities came together. It is only fitting a film recreating that era encourages the community to come together to make it. “We look forward to capturing the vibrancy of the drive-in era with some fantastic production design. The cars, the music, the clothes ��� we want to show it all. There are so many opportunities for people to come on board.” Dromana 3 Drive-In has joined forces with Stanton and Haywood’s video production company Final Focus Australia to produce Penny. Vintage clothing company Vivien of Holloway has signed on to supply costumes. While community enthusiasm has been strong, 40 per cent of the funding is still to be raised. Stanton and Haywood are offering sponsorship packages to peninsula businesses. They include options for video production and advertising as well as inclusion of company branding in all marketing material.

Mongolia ride seals the trilogy By Keith Platt BY all accounts, Mongolia is a rugged place – populated by hardy, nomadic people who travel with the seasons finding fodder for their animals. Documentaries have brought the Mongols into our lounge rooms: living in transportable yurts and making sure no blood is lost when slaughtering animals for food. The reality is only 30 per cent of Mongolia’s population is nomadic and the country joined the World Trade Organisation in 1997 and is seeking regional trading partners. But there is no doubting the harshness of Mongolia’s terrain – a drawcard for increasing numbers of tourists, including some who revel in putting their bodies and minds at risk. George Paterson, of Rye, is training for this year’s Mongolia Bike Challenge, a 900-kilometre, seven-day race across steppes and mountains. There is no prizemoney “just the glory of riding across some of the most remote areas left on the planet”. Paterson, at 59 the oldest competitor, leaves next week for his “training camp” on the remote Indonesian island of Roti and goes to Mongolia at the end of August. He sees the Mongolian ride as the third part of his “hardship trilogy”. Paterson has twice tested his skills while “experiencing the thrills and spills of East Timor’s six-day Tour de Timor”. More usually found at sea level, the lifelong peninsula resident and Peninsula Surf partner sees the September

race as an “opportunity to be as far as remotely possible from the nearest ocean”. Paterson, whose son Bryce joined him for one of the Timor events, says his family “has learnt to avoid these things now”. “The height is going to be an issue; as a sea level person who gets altitude sickness at the top of Arthurs Seat, the event starting height of 1500 metres and going up to 3000 metres could be a problem,” Paterson told The News. “I’ll go slowly, I guess. It’s the end of summer and the climate is probably similar to outback Australia, with hot days and cold nights. “Anything is possible and every rider must carry a survival kit to avoid a time penalty, including a space blanket, whistle and mirror. “The event is centred on the Khan Khentii National Park, the birth place of Genghis Khan in about 1162, which has been sacred and off limits for centuries to all Mongols and foreigners.” There are 100 competitors in the mountain bike race, ranging in age from 20 to 59. Paterson turns 60 in October, the month after the race. He is one of three in the 50 and over section “so I’ve just got to finish to get a place. I’m the oldest and probably least experienced, and prepared, I’d say”. Competitors have 10 hours to finish each day’s ride, except on the fifth day when they are allowed 14 hours to make the 175 kilometres over a 2000-metre high mountain range.

Across the line: George Paterson cruises across the finish line in the 2012 six-day day Tour de Timor endurance event last year.

“The event is high endurance in a stunning and competitive environment,” Paterson said. “The Mongolian event is about one and a half times harder than the Tour de Timor and in an even more remote location. “The challenge of seeing how far

enito’s B

you can push your body and mind in awe-inspiring landscape is interesting and rewarding, although I’m mindful of overdoing it. “I’ve seen the physical and mental disasters that befall unprepared riders. “This is the longest and most remote event I’ve attempted and has a capped

field of 100 riders, most of whom are extreme sportsmen and highly talented sportspeople. “As the oldest in the field, I’ll be doing my best to bring up the rear and hopefully not get pinged by the SAG [support and gear] wagon too many times.”

Child killer takes secrets to the grave

Deadly legacy: Above, Derek Percy when he appeared in court in the early 2000s. Below, Derek Percy (inset) and the boy, Shane Spiller, with his tomahawk, who helped police find the Royal Australian Navy recruit at HMAS Cerberus in 1969. Left, Derek Percy at age 62.

By Mike Hast CHILD killer Derek Percy has taken to his grave the truth about some of Australia’s most notorious child killings. Percy, 64, Victoria’s longest serving prisoner and the only one held at the “governor’s pleasure”, died of lung cancer in a secure ward at St Vincent’s Hospital in Melbourne on Wednesday 24 July. He was jailed indefinitely for the 1969 killing of Yvonne Tuohy, 12, at Warneet, for which he was found not guilty by reason of insanity. His death ended hopes he would shed light on the 1968 disappearance of Linda Stilwell from the St Kilda foreshore. Percy was the prime suspect in Linda’s disappearance and suspected death, and was a suspect in a number of other child disappearances in other states. Linda Stilwell’s family had fought for years for Percy to tell them what happened to their girl. Four days before his death, Percy gave evidence from his hospital bed during a coronial hearing, but denied involvement in her disappearance. Police have long suspected Percy, known as “The Spook”, was involved in Linda Stilwell’s disappearance. He admitted to one officer that he was in St Kilda on the day she went missing. In a police interview in 1969, when asked if he killed Linda Stilwell, Percy

Mornington News 30 July 2013

said “possibly, I don’t remember a thing about it”. Percy was based at HMAS Cerberus in Crib Point when he was arrested just hours after Yvonne Tuohy’s kidnapping. Her mutilated body was found in bushland at Devon Meadows, a short drive from Warneet. Police acted on information from Shane Spiller, a 12-year-old boy who was with Yvonne at Warneet’s Ski Beach in the coastal reserve between Blind Bight and Warneet on an isolated part of Rutherford Inlet, which flows into Western Port near Tooradin. The boy escaped from the kidnapper’s clutches by brandishing his tomahawk. Percy amassed more than $300,000 during his years behind bars. Although he was with the navy for only 20 months, he continued to collect ComSuper payments of up to $20,000 a year, based on 60 per cent of a recruit’s annual salary. In 2007, police found 35 cardboard boxes and tea chests filled with material from Percy in a South Melbourne storage depot. They alleged the material included clippings on sex crimes, stories Percy had written on how to commit child abductions, and items that appeared to implicate him in unsolved murders. There was also a valuable stamp collection. Police discovered Percy had leased

storage units since 1970, had $300,000 in the bank and had successfully invested in gold. He had used part of his income to rent the storage unit. The murder of Yvonne Tuohy became Warneet’s dark secret, only discussed in whispers behind closed doors. The murder brought shame on the navy and HMAS Cerberus, and changed forever the life of the boy who was with Yvonne, the daughter of the owners of Warneet’s one general store. On that fateful day, when US astronaut Neil Armstrong walked on the moon, the 12-year-olds had headed off on an adventure, walking about two kilometres from the village through the bush reserve that separates Warneet Rd from the upper reaches of Rutherford Inlet. Shane Spiller and Yvonne Tuohy were playing on Ski Beach when a strange man approached them and seized the girl. When Percy attempted to grab Spiller, the boy threatened him with his tomahawk. Spiller ran for his life through the bush and raised the alarm when he arrived breathless in the coastal village. Police were called and raced to Warneet. Spiller told them Percy had taken the girl away in an orange station wagon. He gave detectives a drawing of a sticker he’d seen on its rear window, a

Royal Australian Navy insignia. Police drove to Cerberus and found Percy in the base’s laundry, trying to wash Yvonne’s blood from his clothes. Shane Spiller was haunted by the incident for the rest of his life and disappeared from Wyndham, a small town in the south of NSW, in 2002 at the age of 44. He had started drinking at age 14, his school results deteriorated, he fell out with his parents, left school and went walkabout from the family home in Armadale. A neighbour in Wyndham years later described him as “the most paranoid person I’ve ever met. Shane suffered all his life with post-traumatic stress disorder. There was this overwhelming dark cloud over his life and he was basically self-medicating with drugs and alcohol”. Police claim Percy ruined Spiller’s life. Percy had been linked to the disappearances and deaths of eight other children in Victoria, NSW, ACT and South Australia, including the three Beaumont children, who were abducted from an Adelaide beach in 1966 and never found. Detectives from four police forces have been investigating cold case child murders for four years in an operation codenamed Heats. Percy had been questioned about:  The murders of 15-year-olds Christine Sharrock and Marianne Schmidt on Sydney’s Wanda Beach in January 1965, while Percy, then 17, was holidaying nearby with his parents.  The disappearance of the Beaumont children (Jane, 9, Arnna, 7, and Grant, 4), abducted from Glenelg Beach near Adelaide on Australia Day in 1966, which spawned books, documentaries and the visit of a Dutch clairvoyant, Gerard Croiset, who said their bodies were buried under an Adelaide ware-

house. The site was dug up but nothing was found. The case burned a hole in the national psyche and is discussed to this day. Percy admitted to police he was in Adelaide at the time.  The murder of Allen Redston, 6, in Canberra in September 1966. The boy left his home to go to a nearby milk bar for ice-cream. The following day, his body was discovered concealed in reeds by a creek. He had been hog-tied and had plastic wrapped around his throat. When Percy was questioned in 1969, he confirmed taking a family holiday in Canberra that year.  The death of Simon Brook, 3, in Sydney in May 1968, taken from the yard of his home in Glebe. By this time Percy had left school and joined the navy. He lived at the naval base at Garden Island and commuted through Glebe to the dock. Percy was subpoenaed to appear in court in late 2009 to give evidence about Linda Stilwell, who was last seen playing on St Kilda foreshore on 10 August 1968. Percy had admitted to police he drove through St Kilda that day but, as with all of his interviews with the law, says he cannot remember killing anyone. He maintained this line through more than 40 years of interviews. Linda Stilwell’s brother, Gary, reportedly said he truly believed Percy murdered his sister and Stilwell wanted to eyeball Percy in court. The cold case homicide unit first reviewed the Stilwell file more than nine years ago to prepare the inquest brief. In April 2007, Howard government veterans affairs minister Bruce Billson, the Dunkley MP based in Frankston, promised to investigate the payments to Percy. But the Coalition lost power later that year and the money continued to flow. Until last Wednesday.

FEATURE PROPERTY

<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<

Keep it all in the family TO draw on a football analogy of a game being of two halves, this superb country residence could aptly be described as a home of two halves. Many large properties boast of dual-living potential but it has never been more evident than with this splendid 310-square metre (33-square) single-level home. Still presenting in as-new condition, there are two distinct wings to the property. The massive east wing has four bedrooms and a rumpus room positioned along one side of a wide hallway that has timber floors. There is a separate bathroom, and the largest of the bedrooms has an ensuite. This wing has its own private entrance and a double garage has internal access. Also on this side of the home is a decked area surrounding an above-ground pool. The centre of the home is where the family can come together. This impressive and spacious area has a feature dual wood heater and there are comfortable spaces for relaxing and dining. Overlooking the room is the large kitchen with a host of stainless-steel appliances and a recessed space for a double door refrigerator. There are quality granite benchtops, and from the window you get a pleasant outlook to the natural bush surroundings. A timber deck runs along the back of the home and features a nice gazebo for undercover entertaining. Continuing on towards the west wing are more shared areas including the butlers pantry, laundry and powder room, which as a handy feature, is accessible from the outside. In the traditional sense, the master bedroom does not have an ensuite. Rest assured there is a very luxurious separate bathroom with spa, twin vanity unit and shower, and another interesting point to this home, that seems to enjoys changing all the rules on home design, is the walk-in robe from the bathroom. A fitted study brings the total potential of this home to a staggering six bedrooms and outside is parking for up to eight vehicles. The private block measures about 1-hectare with wrought iron gates across the driveway for security. Detached from the home is a 90-square metre workshop and studio with threephase power and although the property is on mains water there are rainwater tanks with 40,000-litre capacity. Well-designed with a creativity that sets it apart from the crowd, this fine rural-residential property is a must see.

NEWS DESK

Youth unemployment on peninsula By Toni Brient LIKE many of her peers, 18-year-old Kiah Goddard was excited to take a gap year between high school and university. After completing year 12 at Mt Erin College in 2012, the young Bittern resident planned to take a break from her studies and gain experience in the workforce before starting a bachelor degree at Deakin University in 2014. “The reason I took the year off was to get lots of different jobs and see where I wanted to take the management course, because I think it’s such a broad sort of course that you could take it to management in businesses, management in law, or management in industries,” she told The News. But after months of applying for a variety of positions, Kiah’s gap year is nearing its end. While she is now working at Kooyong Vineyard in Red Hill South, she is yet to gain any practical experience in the administrative and management fields. “I wanted to go and work in an office, just to see a box-standard job. You’ve got to work your way up from somewhere, so I thought, if I do something like that and start off there, I can just keep moving along.” But after being rejected for reception and administration roles with small local businesses and bigger companies like Coles and Woolworths, Kiah decided to search for answers. She contacted the businesses that turned her down and asked what they were looking for in a candidate. It seems most were seeking the same thing: industry experience.

“How am I going to get experience without (a job)?” she asked them, but received little feedback. “I had a few phone calls, but nothing concrete. They just told me that I needed to work somewhere else before I applying somewhere like that.” Steve Wright, the CEO of Advance/ Peninsula Training and Employment Program, is not surprised by Kiah’s story. He says the problem is a “vicious cycle” that many young people would be familiar with. “It’s a constant problem. Our youth training programs are basically populated by a lot of those kids who don’t have that experience,” he said. According to a study by Frankston and Mornington Peninsula Learning and Employment Network in January 2013, around 6 per cent of 15 to 19-year-old peninsula residents were looking for work. While almost 20 per cent left school after year 10 or earlier to search for work, less than 14 per cent were employed in full time work. Around 30 per cent were currently employed in part-time roles, and 42 per cent had completed year 12. For school leavers like Kiah who are between studies, undertaking an additional course to increase employment opportunity is often costly and unappealing. She said youth employment services she looked into appeared to be strongly geared towards providing training rather than helping young people find an actual job. “They’re very sort of, we’ll train you and then you can find a job by yourself. But I’ll be going to uni and

Job search: Kiah Goddard has found it hard to find a job to fill her gap year. Picture: Yanni

I don’t want to do any training in my gap year.” Mr Wright said that while gaining a qualification was useful, it was not the only way to obtain employment. “The big ticket items are reliability, attitude, and presentation,” he said.

Kiah thinks young people are largely overlooked because it is assumed they don’t have these qualities. “I think businesses are using experience as sort of a lever to deter young people,” she said. “I think young people have a stereotype as being

lazy, not showing up to work and being on the phone all the time. And I think, instead of just saying ‘We’re not looking for someone young’, they’re actually just saying ‘Well, you haven’t got enough experience’.” Mr Wright said vocational-based work experience and voluntary work placements were “critical” in developing skills and preparing young people for the workforce. Voluntary work was a good way to demonstrate skills to a prospective employer and gain industry experience and references. “There is a fairly big component of work experience that we give our trainees,” he said. “One of the big pieces of advice I give to young people is to go out and do some voluntary work and put that on your resume.” Kiah volunteered at community radio station RPP FM during high school and intends to complete unpaid work placements and internships while studying for her bachelor of management course. But, she is still apprehensive about beginning the course without having gained practical experience. “I’m at a loss because I’m going to uni for something that I don’t even know if I’m going to like.” She would like to see employers change the way they viewed prospective employees, especially those in younger age groups. “Judge someone on their own merit; actually look into them, give them a phone call and talk to them. It’s not hard. I would just like to see (employers) take people at face value.”

Cuts cause poverty – Greens THE Australian Greens fear low unemployment benefits and cuts to single parent payments mean thousands of people in the Dunkley electorate cannot afford basic needs. Simon Tiller, the party’s federal candidate for Dunkley, and Greens lead Senate candidate for Victoria, Janet Rice, visited Frankston’s Centrelink office last week to hear how some sole parents struggle to make ends meet. Ms Rice claimed Dunkley electorate residents have as little as $17 per day to spend on food, bills and other expenses after paying rent. “We want people to be able to afford fresh fruit and vegetables, new clothes, and transport to visit family and friends and have basic health and dignity. A caring society protects people and their families from falling into poverty,” Ms

Rice said. Frankston man Barry Fischer received Newstart payments for a couple of months in 2011. The 54-year-old former business owner now has a job delivering groceries for a major supermarket, but found even a brief period of unemployment “a real struggle”. “It’s tough and you can’t live on it,” Mr Fischer said. “I ran up a credit card bill just to survive”. More than 40 people at the Centrelink office signed postcards to be sent to Minister for Employment Bill Shorten, as part of a Greens campaign to raise the Newstart allowance by $50 per week and restore payment cuts affecting over 80,000 single parent families nationally. Mr Tiller said “sole parents have been struggling with the cuts” and faced a “humiliating dive into poverty.”

Needs based: Greens candidates Janet Rice and Simon Tiller speak to Frankston resident Barry Fischer (centre) about his time living on the Newstart allowance.

Steamy pics key to new line of inquiry MEMBERS of the public are being asked to turn over any old steamy pictures they may have hidden away as part of a new line of inquiry into the shire’s past. Mornington Peninsula Shire is looking to collect any photographs or memorabilia from the now-defunct Red Hill to Bittern railway to help reconstruct the historic line’s history. The Red Hill–Bittern line was opened in 1921 mainly to carry produce from the highly productive orchard areas of the peninsula to market in Melbourne but was closed

just over three decades later in 1953. The shire council has commissioned a heritage management plan to guide efforts to protect, preserve and interpret the line’s significant heritage features, which includes two station reserves and remnant sections of line in Balnarring and Bittern. Part of the old line is Peninsula Equestrian Trail from Merricks to Red Hill. Red Hill Ward councillor Frank Martin said very few photographs of trains on the line, station areas or bridges were in the public domain. “We’re hoping that residents may

have photographs in their personal collections of friends or family catching the train, of apples and other produce being loaded on trains, or that some may have detailed knowledge about particular aspects of operation of the line,” he said. “Copies of photographs, train tickets or any other relevant material would be most appreciated and would greatly assist the study.” For more information, contact the shire’s heritage planner Simon Lloyd via email –simon.lloyd@mornpen.vic. gov.au – or call 1300 850 600.

BEST VALUE CHILD CARE Come and take a look


Tough stance on quarry tip By Mike Hast MORNINGTON Peninsula Shire councillors have taken a tough stance on the proposed tip, or landfill, at the old Pioneer quarry in Dromana. The Environment Protection Authority had asked the council to consider an application the EPA had received from Peninsula Waste Management (PWM) for a so-called works approval permit. PWM needs permission from the EPA as well as the council to operate the tip in the old quarry on the Arthurs Seat escarpment off Boundary Rd, which could take 3.7 million cubic metres of domestic and industrial waste over 20 years or more. EPA referred the works application to the council for comment. Nine of 11 councillors said they did not “support the application as it is presented” based on “the information contained in the works approval application”. (Two councillors did not vote – Cr Graham Pittock was on leave and the mayor, Cr Lynn Bowden, has declared a conflict of interest and will take no part in the issue. Her husband Ron Bowden is chairman of a community reference group for the Taylors Rd landfill in Lyndhurst near Dandenong, operated by French multinational waste and recycling firm SITA. It is the only landfill in Melbourne licensed to take toxic waste from industry.) There was no debate by councillors at the special council meeting held in Mornington, attended by about 150 people, most of whom oppose the tip. Councillors agreed the EPA “should

Concerns: Shire councillors do not support the existing application to the EPA by Peninsula Waste Management for a rubbish tip in the old Pioneer quarry on the Arthurs Seat escarpment at Dromana. Picture: Yanni

ask for further information from Peninsula Waste Management”. “This ... should include an assessment as to whether the proposal complies with each specific requirement of the Best Practice Environmental Management and the principles of the Environment Protection Act 1970.” The council called for the EPA to hold a public conference to consider objections. It also stated: “If the EPA decides to ultimately approve the works approval application, it should impose condi-

tions specifically drafted to ensure that the landfill poses no long-term risk to the environment or community of [the] Mornington Peninsula.” The council’s decision came after it had considered a scathing report from senior shire planner Sotirios Katakouzinos (“Quarry tip plan flawed: planner”, The News, 11/7/13). Mr Katakouzinos recommended the council should not object to or support the application to the EPA but councillors led by Frank Martin and Tim Rodgers took a harder line.

After the meeting, Cr Martin told The News he had been receiving about 10 emails a day from tip objectors. The quarry is in Cr Martin’s Red Hill Ward. Peninsula Waste Management CEO Vince Latham said in a prepared statement that Mr Katakouzinos’s report “contains factual inaccuracies and is based on incorrect assumptions”. Mr Latham listed four errors: a reference by Mr Katakouzinos to noise on “Saturday evening”, which should have read “afternoon” (although the

Shire warning over ‘no tip’ signs By Mike Hast MORNINGTON Peninsula Shire has warned objectors to the proposed rubbish tip in an old Dromana quarry to remove signs from nature strips and public land. Hundreds of anti-tip signs have sprouted like mushrooms in recent weeks, especially in the Dromana and Arthurs Seat areas (“Anti-tip slogans sign of the times”, The News, 11/7/13). A bulletin sent to members of Peninsula Preservation Group, lead objector of the tip, stated the shire’s planning compliance department had contacted the group “to alert us to the unlawful positioning of some of our ‘no tip’ signs after receiving a number of complaints”. “They stress that signs will be removed as a last resort, and have given us opportunity to alert supporters to relocate any signs on nature strips back onto their private property,” the bulletin stated. “Signs on fences are also permitted. Thank you for your assistance in this matter; we certainly don’t want to make enemies of the planning people, and they have been very reasonable to date. “In the meantime, let’s keep up the signage – they are obviously making an impression.” The group is distributing signs from three outlets – a cafe and a liquor shop in Dromana, and a food shop in Red Hill – as well as through its website. Some of the “no tip” signs are small and handmade while others are large ones produced by professional signwriters. One is next to the freeway near Martha Cove marina at Safety Beach erected by Dromana real estate agent Roger McMillan on a property he is selling for the owners. Another is on Dromana cattle grazier Andrew Duncan’s property on Collins Rd leading into the industrial estate, and he has one near the corner of White Hill and Bittern-Dromana roads. Mr Duncan is a high-profile opponent of the tip

who in May paid for large advertisements in local papers objecting to the proposal. One sign on Arthurs Seat Rd at Yabby Lake Vineyard reads: “Say no to the stinking, dangerous, noisy tip at beautiful Arthurs Seat. This is an environmental dereliction of duty by our council. Sponsored by Yabby Lake Vineyard and the Kirby family.” Yabby Lake was established by Robert and Mem Kirby in the late 1990s. The father of Robert and his brother John is the late Roscoe “Roc” Kirby who started the Village Roadshow cinema chain. Yabby Lake is now operated by Robert and Mem Kirby’s children Nina and Clark. Another sign in Boundary Rd, Dromana, reads: “We want our kids to grow up in a park not a tip.” Some objectors have injected humour into their messages. A digitally altered photo doing the email rounds shows several naked young women at a quarry

holding anti-tip signs to protect their modesty. The quarry is not the old Pioneer quarry on the Arthurs Seat escarpment. Another is an actual photo of the top of Arthurs Seat with several additions – a huge, overflowing litter bin named “The Big Rubbish Bin” with seagulls hovering above it and with smaller signs reading “Welcome to Arthurs Seat” and “Tip Tours”. Next to the bin is a huge sign reading “No tip near Arthurs Seat”. It is on Facebook. If battles were decided by “image warfare”, the anti-tip movement has already won.  Peninsula Preservation Group’s website is at: savearthursseat.com The group’s 12,000 signature petition is at: www. communityrun.org/petitions/save-arthurs-seat  Peninsula Waste Management’s website is at: peninsulawaste.com.au  There is information on the shire website at: www.mornpen.vic.gov.au

times were correct); disagreeing about the EPA’s 500-metre buffer zone from homes; disagreeing about the meaning of “immediate future” regarding the closure of Rye landfill in about five years; and the report’s concern about the landfill not having an Alternative Waste Treatment facility. “It is common knowledge that the site is unsuitable for such a facility. The EPA required buffer separation distance for an enclosed 90,000 tonnes per annum organics processing facility in the order of 1400 to 2000 metres. This buffer is not available here and therefore such a facility is not and cannot be part of the [EPA] application,” Mr Latham stated. Mark Fancett of Peninsula Preservation Group said Mr Katakouzinos’s report “outlines many pages of significant concerns and omissions from PWM’s submission”. “These include but are not limited to leachate and groundwater management, dust suppression, vermin and pest control, odour, noise, buffer distances and fire risk,” Dr Fancett said. “It is an engrossing read, taking us on a dramatic journey through the inadequacies of the proposal.” Dr Fancett, a biological scientist, said there had been a leachate spill “at Rye tip in 2008 after the rupture of a leachate pipe”. “This is evidence that all landfills are prone to technical failures during their operation and beyond. The EPA should take heed of its own guidance: appropriate siting of a landfill is the primary environmental control.”

Big win for a village A COURT case involving a small village in the Hunter Valley of NSW threatened by a planned coal mine could play a role in whether the old Pioneer quarry on the Arthurs Seat escarpment becomes a rubbish dump. Bulga (population 300) had a big win in the NSW Land and Environment Court over Coal & Allied, a subsidiary of global mining giant Rio Tinto, which wanted to dig an open-cut mine in a refuge for endangered plants and animals. The land court, overturning the NSW government-endorsed proposal, criticised the government’s approval of the proposed mine, saying it could damage Bulga’s “sense of place”. Many objections put to the court – equal in rank to NSW’s Supreme Court – are the same as opponents of Peninsula Waste Management’s proposal to convert the old quarry to a landfill site. Peninsula Preservation Group and 850 objectors to the quarry tip plan have raised concerns over dust, noise, pollution of groundwater and creeks, traffic and bushfires. Justice Brian Preston, chief judge of the Land and Environment Court, said he was not persuaded by the economic analysis offered by the company. “The project’s impacts would exacerbate the loss of sense of place, and materially and adversely change the sense of community of the residents of Bulga and the surrounding countryside,” he said. The mine would have had “significant and unacceptable” effects on plants and animals, and would generate serious levels of dust and noise, the judgment said. A Rio Tinto spokesman reportedly said the community’s ability to challenge the government’s decision was “significantly obstructing investment and job creation in NSW”. The matter was taken to court by the Bulga Milbrodale Progress Association, representing the views of most of Bulga’s residents, with help from the Environmental Defender’s Office of NSW. The land court’s decision is being appealed. David Harrison Mornington News 30 July 2013

100 YEARS AGO THIS WEEK...

Melbourne thief tried for larceny, Booze to blame for bodily harm Compiled by Matt Vowell From the pages of the Mornington Standard, 2 August 1913. BEFORE Messrs N. Rudduck (chairman) and A. V. Shaw, J’s,P., Harold Mulder, a young man of about 25 years of age, was charged with entering the dwelling of, and stealing therefrom the sum of £27 14s 4d, the property of George Perugia. Inspector Skehan, who conducted the prosecution, asked the Bench to amend the charge to that of simple larceny. The Bench had power to do this under Section 69 of the Crimes Act. On the Bench concurring, the accused pleaded guilty. After hearing the evidence of George Perugia and Detective Rohen, who arrested the accused in Elizabeth Street, Melbourne, on the l4th inst., the chairman stated the sentence would be 3 months’ imprisonment, and that accused would be dealt with as a first offender, and to enter into recognisance’s to be of good behaviour for 12 months and to find a surety of £10. This was forthcoming and he was set at liberty. *** WHEN trying a case of wounding at the Central Criminal Court, Judge Rentoul, K.C., observed that, in his opinion, 90 per cent of the cases heard arose out of excessive indulgence in drink, and 97 or 98 per cent of the cases of bodily harm were traceable to the same pernicious evil. *** THE Frankston Brass Band will play out in the street on Saturday evening, weather permitting. *** THE secretary of the Frankston Football Club acknowledges, with thanks,

a donation of 10s 6d towards the club funds from Dr Plowman. Mr K. H. Webb, secretary of the Somerville Football Club, begs to acknowledge, with thanks, a donation of £2 2s from Mr G. Keast. *** REV. J. Bateson has been granted a special pension of £100 a year by the Government of India in recognition of Shis labers in the cause of temperance I in the Army. *** MR Wm. Carter, of Katunga, has purchased a building block in Frankston and proposes during the summer months to spend much time in Frankston. Mr Carter is a first rate cricketer and possibly may play for the local team. *** THE Moonee Valley Steeplechase of £850 was on Saturday last won by the favourite, Bullawarra. The second prize of £100 was annexed by Zephuron, who was not fancied for the event with 10st 6lb in the saddle, started at the long price of 12 to 1 against. *** AT the recent primary examination at the Melbourne University, Mary Stark, one of the pupils attending the Convent of Mercy, Morninton, passed in the following subjects:- English, French, Arithmetic, Algebra, Geography and Drawing (mode, memory freehand and practical geometry.) *** AFTER the football match:Caller: “Your brother had a rough time at the football match on Saturday, and I hear he is in bed; does he want anything? Sister: “Poor Jack! He is in a sorry plight. He wants two deltoid muscles, a couple of kneecaps, one el-

bow, about a yard of cuticle, a left ear, and a bridge for his nasal organ.” *** LANDOWNERS in the Shire of Mornington are finding themselves taxed with another mattter besides rates and land tax at present, and that is to destroy the rabbits on their holdings. In many cases the rabbits have ruined the land to such an extent that it will not produce anything at all and in all cases it will be an expensive affair getting rid of the pest. *** A VERY enjoyable social evening was spent by the members of the Mornington Young Men’s Christian Association at “Parkside,”’ on Tuesday last. The evening’s amusement consisted of parlor games, etc., which were generally enjoyed, after which supper was partaken of. The catering, which was in the hands of Mr F. Bieri, gave entire satisfaction. *** NEXT Wednesday night at the Mechanics’ Institute, Mornington, a full programme of star subjects will be shown at Merchant’s Royal Pictures. The principal picture wil1 be ‘Dublin Dan,’ the Irish Detective, a thrilling and sensational Melodrama, a tense story of crime, conspiracy and punishment, also ‘Baxter’s Busy Day,’ ‘Out of the Shadows,’ ‘Cupid’s Window,’ ‘Love of the Law,’ ‘Motor Boat Party,’ ‘Romance,’ and others. It is the best programme ever submitted to the public, the proceeds being in aid of the Catholic Church debt. *** A EUCHRE party and dance in aid of the funds of the Frankston Brass Band will be held in the Mechanics’ Hall on Wednesday evening next, 6th Au-

gust. Good music and supper will be provided, and an enjoyable evening is anticipated. *** EVIDENCE of Spring are visible on every hand. Almond and cherry plum trees are just opening their flowers. Orchardists generally are very busy with winter spraying and pruning. *** A GANG of men are at present busily engaged in strengthening the crane at the Somerville railway station yard. The large bundles of trees, crates of cabbages, and heavy machinery loaded and unloaded at this station require a strong crane. *** WE regret to say that Mr Wm. Thornell is in a very low state. Mrs Robert Frayne is also in a serious condition, two trained nurses being in attendance. Mrs Grant, senr., has made good progress towards recovery since her attack. *** DURING the past few weeks, a considerable number of properties have changed hands at Mornington. Dr Somers has sold nearly all his building allotments in Bath Street; Mr J. G. Barrett has disposed of several building sites and properties, including a choice block on the Esplanade (next to the State Savings Bank) to Mr J. Conroy; Mr A. Bestlie’s property, in Waterloo Place, to Mr Hoskins, of Red Hill; and Miss Warrell’s property, in Albert Street (which is at present occupied by Mr J. G. Barrett and family) to Mrs A. B. Gray, “ The Glen,” at satisfactory prices. *** EXTENSIVE alterations have been going on during the past few months

at Mr Edwick’s residence, “Belura,” and although about twenty men are constantly employed, the necessary alterations and additions will not be complete until another month or two. Mr Edwick intends having the place lighted with electric light, and radiated pipes through all the principal rooms, and skewered throughout. Several fine buildings are also in course of erection in Mornington. Mr Parker’s villa, in Queen Street, is now completed, and Mrs J. G. Barrett’s magnificent brick modern villa will be finished in a couple of week’s time. This commodious building is situated at the corner of Albert street and commands a beautiful view of the Bay. It is fitted with all the latest up-to-date requirements, and, when finished, will be a charming residence. *** FOR some time there has been an agitation to remove the Langwarrin post office from the railway station to a more central site. The residents along the Cranbourne road desired a site near that road, but at a public meeting, by a few votes, they were defeated in favour of the local store site. Last week the post office at the rail way station was transferred to the local store. The members of the local Progress Association are very dissatisfied with the action of the Department, and claim that their supporters are the best clients of the post office. Several of them intend in the future to patronise the Frankston post office on one end and Cranbourne one the other: This will be a severe blow to the Langwarrin post office, as the revenue is very small, so small in fact, that but for Mr J. Marsh’s assistance at one time, the office would have been closed.

Monkeyshine on you crazy diamond By Stuart McCullough THE trappings of success are plentiful when you’re a musician. Limousines, fabulous wealth and an adoring public – these are just some of the benefits writing a song that can be hummed by others will bring you. It’s not just wheelbarrows of filthy lucre, either. Indeed, it’s pretty much a law of physics that the greater the success, the more unusual the riches. Fur-lined bathtub, a diamond encrusted toothbrush and your own personalized range of sneakers – that’s how the truly rich and famous celebrate the unending glory that it is to be them. But speedboats made of chocolate and motorized socks will only get you so far. True superstardom means one thing and one thing only: your own monkey. Take Justin Bieber. Please. He started off as a kid with a haircut and unfettered access to Auto-Tune who seemed to strike it lucky in life’s super-draw jackpot. Justin has sold recordings and concert tickets in obscene quantities. But like any self-respecting rock star, he knew this was simply a platform to realize the one dream we all have but too few of us ever see to fruition. Justin got himself a monkey named ‘Mally’. And while, at 19, Justin Bieber is insultingly young, the monkey was younger still, at less than 6 months old.

When a pop star finally reaches the stratospheric heights of stardom needed to justify getting a primate to call their very own, it should be something of a love affair. Sadly, this has not been the case for young Justin and Mally. It started well enough, with candid photos of the two larking about. But their bliss would prove to be short-lived. Being a young pop star may give you tens of millions of followers on Twitter, but it doesn’t make you any better at paperwork and German authorities confiscated Mally. When the singer later missed a deadline to submit his documents, ownership of the creature was transferred to the state and the monkey sent to an animal park. The verdict is in: sorry Justin, you’re

clearly not ready for a monkey. Perhaps before you make your next bid for all-out superstardom, you should take a moment to consider those who have come before you. Elvis may be regarded by some as the ‘King’ of rock ‘n’ roll’, but there was a time when he wanted to add the title ‘Lord of the Apes’ to his collection. ‘Scatter’ the chimpanzee was, in many respects, perfectly suited to the rock ‘n’ roll lifestyle as he had a tendency to steal people’s drinks and to look up the skirts of unsuspecting guests. He was a constant source of amusement for the King. Scatter would be dressed in suits and sneakers and would sit in the back of a Rolls Royce while the chauffer drove around Las Vegas. Apparently, it tickled Elvis’s fancy

ENTRIES OPEN

But of all the pop stars to own a monkey, no one was more devoted than French singer Leo Ferre. For those unfamiliar with his work, Leo’s music is very, very French. So much so, had he visited French Island during his lifetime, he would doubtless have been crowned its king. Leo was a struggling songwriter who ultimately achieved extraordinary success with his unique and, frankly, somewhat eccentric take on French folk music. Propelled to mega-stardom, like so many before him, Leo bought an island with a castle on it and settled down. As you or I would, he then filled that castle with animals. Among a menagerie of beasts that would put Noah to shame was a chimp called Pepee. However, primates need a firm hand and, without the appropriate discipline, Pepee eventually took control of the castle, stealing valuables from guests and biting servants. He was later put down after injuring himself in a fall. Leo Ferre was inconsolable. It never ends well with monkeys. Then again, it never ends well with mega stardom either. Perhaps young Bieber is lucky Mally was confiscated. Rather than adopt wildlife, he should just settle for changing his name to a symbol. Rock on,. stuart@stuartmccullough.com

when fellow commuters glanced at the back seat of the car beside them only to see a monkey. Sadly, it wasn’t all just stealing drinks and doing a ‘blockie’ in the Roller. Scatter also tended to bite people and, eventually, was banished from Elvis’ Bel Air digs, dispatched back to Memphis. When it comes to the sacred bond between man and chimp, there’s no better example than Michael Jackson and ‘Bubbles’. The pop star bought the animal from a research facility. The two were soon inseparable. Bubbles wore human clothes, including the glittery military-style suits so favoured by his owner. He was said to sleep in a crib in Jackson’s room and was bestowed the ultimate honour of being allowed to use the King of Pop’s bathroom. The chimp had his own bodyguard and was taught to moonwalk. He also had his own agent, although (sadly) Bubbles never landed that one careerdefining breakout role. He would have brought something entirely unique to the role of Stanley Kowalski in A Street Car Named Desire. Fists raised to the sky, Bubbles would wail for Stella before tossing a monkey mound in her direction. It was not to be. As the chimp got older, he became more aggressive. Removed from Neverland, he ended up at the Centre for Great Apes in Florida.

Pythons outrun Redlegs, Sharks put bite on Doggies PENINSULA LEAGUE By Andrew ‘Toe Punt’ Kelly PINES season is well and truly alive after it came from behind to knock over Mt Eliza in Peninsula League football on Saturday. Trailing by almost five goals in the early stages of the third quarter, Pines dominated the final 40 minutes of play to run over the top of the Redlegs, 11.7–73 to 8.15–63. While the Redlegs squandered opportunities in front of goal in the second half, the Pythons were kicking them from all angles. Redlegs spearhead Scott Lockwood finished the afternoon with five goals, however, he missed some vital chances, especially in the final term. On the other hand, Guy Hendry slotted one from the boundary line and Dale Tedge snapped one out of a pack to put the Pythons in front. While missing opportunities told a tale for the Redlegs, it was Pines leg speed and willingness to run, spread and push to the next contest that saw them win the game. Mt Eliza controlled the match on their terms in the first half with Josh Norman dominating. However, the Pythons ability to spread and take the game on was a highlight of the second half comeback. The half back line worked extremely well, the onballers worked hard both

ways and the attack looked dangerous and menacing when the ball went inside attacking 50. Jake Prosser did a wonderful job on the dangerous Ben Lean and really cut him up in the second half and Brendan Cowell was close to the best player on the ground. Cade Egan was also back in the seniors and showed a lot of leadership when it was needed in the tense final term. The only time the Pythons didn’t look like they were in control in the last was when Chris Guganovic broke a pack, tucked the footy under his arm, and booted the ball 50 metres in the wrong direction. Only minutes earlier he drilled one down the throat of Guy Hendry, who went back and kicked truly. Thankfully for Guganovic, Lockwood missed the opportunity to make him pay. Pines coach Steve Ryan said the win was an important one for the club. “We are a lot further ahead of where we were this time last season, which is very pleasing for the group,” Ryan said. “We are still well and truly in the hunt for a finals spot and probably need to win all three of our remaining games to make it. “That’s going to be a tough ask in such a close competition but the guys are really enthusiastic and I refuse to write them off. “They have a lot of self belief and

resolve and know their best can match it with anyone in the competition.” Edithvale–Aspendale sits a game clear in third position after coming from behind to beat Karingal. The Bulls are now a game behind the Eagles in fourth position. Eagles forward Brad Tagg finished the afternoon with seven goals and Adam Budge booted four as the home side put on a football clinic in the second half. Trailing by ten points at half time, the Eagles turned it on in the second hour, booting 13 goals to four to run out comfortable 19.16–130 to 12.12– 84 winners. Tim Mavric and Zac Muschialli continued their outstanding seasons while Stevey Mannix was also at his best. Chris Hay booted six for the Bulls and Luke Van Raay was exceptional in his return game, along with Grant Goodall. Mornington may have won two in a row against Chelsea and Seaford but it was brought back to earth with a thud against Bonbeach on Saturday. The Sharks kicked six goals to one in the opening quarter, ending any opportunity the Doggies had of winning the game. The visitors were keen to take the crowd out of the equation at the kennel and were able to maintain their stranglehold on the game throughout.

Accuracy in front of goal was certainly a feature of the Sharks’ play, kicking 10.3 to 6.11 in the first half and finishing with 24.9–153 to 12.16–88. Emily Bitters, Anthony Franchina and Daniel Moss all finished with two goals each for the Dogs while Chris Coyle and Scott Matthews were among the sides best. Frankston YCW maintained its strong run with a comfortable 22.15– 147 to 11.3–69 victory over Seaford. Ben Tellis booted five and Kyle Hutchison three goals for the winners and were clearly the best two players on the ground. Scott MacLeod also played one of his best games for the Stonecats. Frankston YCW opened the game up in the second quarter with a five goal to two term and led by 36 points at the change. The Tigers, who have used 43 players through the season so far, just couldn’t go with the ladder leaders in the second half. Aaron Walton and Kain Taylor led from the front while Levi Hughes was yet another youngster who was given an opportunity. Tigers coach Craig McIndoe said it had been a long season. “We showed at the beginning of the season that our best, with a full team, was good enough to be competitive against the best sides in the competition.

Derby delight for Mornington SOCCER

By Craig MacKenzie MORNINGTON left Lawton Park on Saturday with its promotion credentials enhanced and huge question marks hanging over the title aspirations of home team Langwarrin. Adam Jamieson’s men ran out comfortable 4-1 victors in this local derby after a second-half display that at times reduced Gus Macleod’s side to non-participant observers. No doubt the ex-Langy contingent in Mornington’s starting line-up savoured every moment, none more so than perennial pest Wayne Gordon, the wee man that opposition fans love to hate and an ex-Langy favourite. Two minutes into the contest Langy midfielder Boris Ovcin was forced to limp off to be replaced by Mark O’Connor and a Nick Waite shot on the turn in the 8th minute forced Langy keeper Colin McCormack into a one-handed save. McCormack was only registered on Friday afternoon in a last-ditch bid to solve Langy’s goal keeping injury crisis and he had a fine game despite the score line. Irish midfielder Alan Pratt suffered a brain fade in the 10th minute inexplicably handling inside his own area and Mornington hitman Waite made no mistake from the resultant penalty. The last 20 minutes of the first half were the best for the home team but its efforts to level were thwarted by poor finishing and a

clear penalty claim that somehow fell upon deaf ears. Captain Caleb Nicholes twice was set up by Liam Ryan and once by Berkan Sakaci but the closest the Langy hitman came was with a low shot that struck the far post and was cleared. With half-time looming Waite and fellow striker Jordie Scott both shot wide before Gordon

ghosted past two defenders and struck a firm shot that McCormack could only parry to the feet of Waite for a tap-in and a 2-0 lead for the visitor. The contest was put out of Langy’s reach two minutes into the second half when Stevie Vernon charged down the left and cut the ball back to Waite who completed his hat-trick with a meas-

ured strike from 10 metres. Gordon should have scored in the 57th minute when he ran onto a Waite through ball only to shoot high and wide and Shane Tagliaferro forced McCormack into two fine saves as Mornington threatened to run riot. Tagliaferro had one of his best games at Lawton Park but sadly for home fans this time he was in the orange colours of Mornington. Gordon, Tagliaferro and Scott combined to great effect in the 72nd minute with Gordon making it 4-0 via a low shot that went in off the far post. Alex van Heerwarden turned and hammered a deflected Chris Driver shot past Mornington keeper Christian Morales to make it 4-1 late in the piece but that did little to quieten Mornington fans who already were celebrating. “I thought we were good in the first 10 to 15 minutes but Langwarrin dominated the final 20 minutes of the first half,” said Jamieson after the win. “After half-time I thought we put on a really good performance and the early goal in the second half killed them off.” The win leaves Mornington in fourth spot in State 2 South-East, four points behind league leader Springvale White Eagles. Langwarrin slips to third just two points above Mornington as the title race heats up in what has been a topsy-turvy season. Mornington’s promotion push continues at 3pm on Saturday at Dallas Brooks Park when it hosts 9th-placed Malvern City.

“Unfortunately, we have been hit very hard with injuries, some of them long term, which has affected our ability to put our best on the paddock. “Some weeks we are having five to seven changes – that makes it hard for any side. “It has given a lot of kids an opportunity, however, which is positive for the club.” Langwarrin had to overcome a slow start to get over the line against Chelsea. After a couple of lean weeks, the Gulls jumped out of the blocks and led the more fancied Langwarrin by 21 points at the halfway mark of the match. However, a five goal third quarter and some midfield dominance from Dan Wehner and Beau Muston saw the Kangas hit back and snatch the lead by 18 points at the final change. Had Langwarrin kicked straight in the third (5.11), the margin could have been far greater. Luke Damon finished the afternoon with five goals against his old side, while Aaron Shaw booted three. Jarryd Amalfi and Michael Parker continued their outstanding form. Fia Tootoo was the best for Chelsea, ahead of Joel Connelly, who finished with five majors.

Footy appointments

THE AFL South East Commission has appointed experienced duo Ben O’Brien (left) and Michael Roberts (right) as the Football Development Managers (FDM) for the region. The role of the FDM combines the responsibilities of the current AFL Victoria Regional Development Managers and WorkSafe AFL Vic Country Area Managers, and represents a substantial investment into grass roots football in country Victoria. The extra resources will make a significant impact to affiliated leagues and clubs, who will receive access to increased levels of support and game development expertise. The two new FDMs will play an important role in the development and implementation of a strategic plan for football in the region and have a hands-on-role in growing the game in conjunction with WorkSafe AFL Victoria and the AFL South East Commission. The FDM’s will also focus on assisting all Commission Member clubs and leagues to help grow and improve the game in the region. WorkSafe AFL Victoria Country General Manager Brett Connell said he was delighted by the calibre of the successful applicants. “We are extremely pleased to have secured the services of such experienced and talented individuals and are excited by the support the additional resources will provide for country football in general,” Connell said. “Having people with local knowledge and strong links to the local community will allow benefits to flow through to all levels of football from Auskick to senior and junior competitions.” It is expected that the RDM’s will commence their role fulltime in the region once the appointment of the Regional General Manager has been finalized.

Eagles pip Demons at the post in thriller NEPEAN LEAGUE By Andrew ‘Toe Punt’ Kelly “WE’VE got to get under their skin and challenge their arrogance”. That was the quarter time message from Rosebud coach Nick Jewell after his side was held scoreless in the opening quarter of their match against league leaders Sorrento on Saturday. A former Sorrento premiership player, Jewell gave his old side zero respect at the quarter time huddle, singling out a number of opposition players in a ‘not too kind’ fashion. Going into the match without dominant ruckman Paul Lewis (thigh) and star midfielder Greg Bentley (shoulder), the Buds needed to produce something mighty special against Sorrento to win. Afterall, the last time they played, Sorrento won by 106 points. Jewell couldn’t allow the same thing to happen again and the tactic was clearly to play the ball and the man hard. There were a number of scuffles in the opening half, some ignited as a result of Rosebud’s heavy tackling, while others were ignited by Sorrento, not comfortable with the treatment they were getting. The likes of Leigh Treeby, Scott Cameron and Troy Schwarze were all targeted, known to have short fuses. Even the eyes of mild-mannered Guy Stringer were rolling at one point in the second quarter. Call Jewell’s tactic what you like but it seemed to get his boys up and going. Former Sorrento small man Glenn Boyington and Somerville hard nut Paul McDonald did the majority of the unsettling, a tact they seemed very comfortable with. On the scoreboard, however, it seemed to have very little difference. At three quarter time, the Sharks had kept Rosebud to two goals for the afternoon and led by 61 points.

Rosebud kicked six goals to three with the wind in the final term, eventually going down by 45 points, 14.12–96 to 8.3–51. Sorrento simply put the cue in the rack by the 10 minute mark of the last term. Sorrento forward Ryan Jeffrey was reported in the third quarter for ‘abusive, threatening, insulting or obscene language towards an umpire’. He will be missing for the next two weeks. Rosebud skipper Ryan Spooner

was badly knocked out in the second quarter and didn’t reappear. It is doubtful that he will play this week. Leigh Poholke was outstanding for the Sharks with five goals, while Leigh Treeby and James Hallahan dominated. Ben Shultz was starved of opportunity in attack but still managed to kick five goals while Matt and Brenton Payne, along with Tom Baker who played in the ruck, were clearly the Buds’ best players.

Rye gave up a 27-point three quarter time lead to go down to Somerville by the smallest of margins at RJ Rowley Reserve. The Eagles hit the front with two minutes left on the clock, before Rye drew level a minute later. With ten seconds left in the match, Somerville rushed a behind, giving them a 15.12– 102 to 15.11–101 victory. Turnovers and unaccountability cost Rye in the last quarter. There was a two-three goal wind advantage to the Melbourne Rd end of the ground and 22 of the 30 goals kicked on the day were slotted through at that end of the ground. Somerville had the aid of the breeze in the final quarter and as it did in the second quarter, booted six goals with it to steal victory. In fact, the Eagles booted 12 of their 15 goals to the Melbourne end of the ground. Todd Farrelly was back and finished the afternoon with five goals for the winners, while Rhys Palmer finished with three. Justin Farrelly won the battle in the ruck, Caleb Cox continued his wonderful form at Rye’s home ground and Justin Allsop was dominating through the middle with two goals. Jack Kennedy also finished with a couple of goals and was lively in attack. Rye forward Andrew Dean played clearly his best game of the season with seven majors, while Ben Holmes finished with four. Andrew Dunn, Jai Lloyd and Adam Kirkwood were the best of the Demons. Pearcedale had to produce some special footy in the last quarter to get the better of Devon Meadows. The Tractors trailed by 16 points at half time and by five points at three quarter time, before booting seven goals to five in the last to win 18.15– 123 to 17.10–112. Pat Heijden finished with eight

goals for Pearcedale while Pat Cadd dominated with three majors. Chris Fortnam and Ben Cadd were the best players for the winners and Luke Murray led from the front in the back half of the ground. Heath Black was superb for Devon with five goals, while Pat Chin also finished with five. Gavin Kerr and Callum O’Hare were at their best. Hastings booted 13 goals to four after half time to smash Crib Point to the tune of 49 points. The Blues trailed at half time but completely dominated the second hour, winning 18.11–119 to 10.10–70. Colin McVeigh booted six goals and Luke Hewitt three for the Blues while Taylor Stratton and Andy Kiely shone. Matt Sloper and Jon Flack with three goals were the best of the Pies. Dromana had another day out, this time against Tyabb. After booting three goals in the first quarter, the Tigers kicked 24.6 to 5.4 in the following three quarters to win 27.18–180 to 6.6–42. Daniel Waddell booted five goals and a further 15 players contributed on the scoreboard. There were eight players who kicked multiple goals for the Tigers. Christian Ongarello was the best player on the ground, while Shaun Clarke and Terry Wheeler also had plenty of the footy. Craig Conlan and Matty Dimkos were amongst the best for the Yabbies. Frankston Bombers completed the expected and beat Red Hill, winning 19.13–127 to 4.7–31. Ryan Lonie was best afield with four goals, Allan Williams played forward and finished with three and Jason Kingsbury and Duncan Proud saw plenty of the footy. Jake Mitchell and Josh Mold were the best of the Hillmen, while Ben Maguinness continued his fantastic season.

Final’s venue choices vexing Pirates crush Bluejays By Andrew ‘Toe Punt’ Kelly THE venues for the Nepean and Peninsula Finals were announced by the PCN Alliance last week. Both Crib Point and Red Hill have been selected as finals venues in 2013. Rosebud, Rye and Frankston Park will also host finals. Pines and Frankston Park will host Peninsula League finals. This is the first time in memory that Crib Point and Red Hill have been selected to host finals. As it stands, the surface at Crib Point is far from fit to host a final, while Red Hill’s ground lacks the atmosphere required to host a final. Finals are a showcase of the league and simply must be played at the best venues on the peninsula. If the league wanted a final on the Western Port side of the league, Hastings and Pearcedale both offer much better facilities and atmosphere. The selection of these grounds is nothing more than the league giving the home clubs an opportunity to raise funds. The decision has nothing to do with selecting the best venues to host finals for spectators. In a media release sent last week, PCN Alliance general manager Jeff Jones thanked the eight clubs who submitted expressions of interest to host the 2013 finals matches for football and netball this year. “Whilst we have allocated finals games to some of our more traditional venues we have also looked outside of the square and included venues that are either new to hosting finals or haven’t hosted finals for a number of years,” Jones said. “Our decision sends all clubs within the Nepean League a clear message that with all the

right foundations in place there is a possibility to host finals away from the traditional venues in the future years to come,” Jones said. It would have been interesting if Jones went further and gave football followers an understanding of why the decision was made to select Crib Point and Red Hill as finals venues. What is the definition of the ‘right foundations’? I’m sure the committees of Crib Point and Red Hill will do a sensational job hosting the finals, that is not in question. Finals are the pinnacle of the season that clubs have worked so hard for and spectators have paid to enjoy. Surely they all should be able to see their teams in action at the best venues at the most important time of the year. The Nepean Finals calendar is: Week 1 Saturday 17 August – Rosebud FNC Football – Qualifying Final Netball – 1st & 2nd Semi Finals Sunday 18 August – Crib Point FNC Football – Elimination Final Week 2 Saturday 24 August – Rye FNC Football – 2nd Semi Final Netball – Preliminary Final Sunday 25 August – Red Hill FNC Football – 1st Semi Final Week 3 Saturday 31 August – Rosebud FNC Football – Preliminary Final Netball – Grand Final Week 4 Saturday 7 September – Frankston Park Football – Grand Final

BASEBALL

By Fiona Abbott THE Mornington Pirates A1 side downed the Bonbeach Bluejays 10–0 in a strong performance in round 14 of the season. Surrendering only one hit Brendan Wilson kept the ’Jays bats quiet, while the offence lead by Josh Mulherin with five hits for himself scored plenty of runs. In other results: A2 Mornington vs Bonbeach A tough loss for the Pirates, with time getting the better of our boys with the winning run on base. Matt Dunn and Kyle McDonald looked strong on the mound, backed by the offence of both Garry and Jordan Barnett. Shaun Martin looked strong in the batters box. Final score Mornington 4 to Bonbeach 5. B2 Mornington vs Frankston Boys hang onto 4th spot with a big win with 23 hits including a Grand Slam from James Maskell and a Home Run to Craig Brisbane. Solid game from John Harrison on the mound. Final score Mornington 20 to Frankston 7. JUNIORS U17 Mornington Pirates vs Dingley The game started off strong with two quick runs to the Pirates but were stopped by strong fielding. Dingley returned the intense batting with hits to the outfield scoring 6 runs. The Pirates continued into the next innings making it short and sharp taking 3 outfield fly all

catches one after another using the strong Dingley batting to an advantage. The Pirates scored another run but were halted by a consistently good fielding side. Dingley knocked in another 6 runs taking them to a score of 12. The pirates came back just a little too late scoring 7 runs in the last innings. Impressive fielding by Angus Paterson, Josh Chivers and Barto kept Dingley limited with what they could do. Impressive batting by Cal Barnett, Charlie, Tristan Meats and Caiden Stuart helped bring the pirates to the final score. Final score Mornington 10 to Dingley 12. U13 Mornington Gold vs Bonbeach Mornington could not have asked for a better start on Saturday morning. The sun was shining as where the faces of the Mornington players as they got off to a flyer. Harrison started on the mound for Mornington, pitching three innings, and getting five strike outs. The bats where swinging as well with hits to Jordan, Tom, Zac, Harley and Jack. It was a fantastic win and hopefully Mornington can carry this momentum through to next weekend’s game. Final score Mornington 12 to Bonbeach 7. U13 Mornington Black vs Dandenong Once again the score did not reflect the Pirates’ effort. Great catches by McDonald, Tedesco & Isbister. Hits to Tedesco, Isbister, Stenberg. Double to McDonald. Great pitching by Bald & Pierson. All the boys had action, MVP to McDonald. Final score Dandenong 12 to Mornington 2.
