Hey buddy: Jai and Ruby test out the new “buddy bench” at Mornington Park Primary School. Picture: Gary Sissons

Hey buddy, can you spare me some time? A “BUDDY bench” – where pupils can sit when they have no one to talk to or play with – was unveiled at Mornington Park Primary School, Tuesday 26 June. The seat acts as a signal to other pupils and teachers that someone is lonely and that they should come up and make friends. Work on the collaborative project was paid for with a $5000 Mornington Peninsula Shire community support grant. It was designed by the school’s Grade 5 pupils (Steiner Stream) and built by members of the New Peninsula Men’s Shed, Mt Martha.

Water ‘saviour’ of green wedge Keith Platt keith@mpnews.com.au THE availability of a “resilient” water supply is seen as one of the key factors in the “protection” of green wedgezoned areas on the Mornington Peninsula. Mornington Peninsula Shire and South East Water have announced they will join forces to investigate “the po-

tential for sustainable water projects”, including rain water, urban run-off and artesian water. The shire and SEW agreed to extend their investigations after a recent meeting to discuss increasing the use of recycled water from Melbourne Water’s sewage treatment plant at Bangholme. There are also treatment plants at Mt Martha and Boneo. Some of the treated water is already used on the peninsula and by more

than 80 horticulturists and industrialists in Cranbourne. However, most of the treated water is still being pumped into the ocean through the south east outfall near Gunnamatta, within the Mornington Peninsula National Park. The announcement by the shire and SEW follows the Green Wedges Summit held at Main Ridge on Friday 22 June which highlighted the value of produce from the green wedge areas,

which comprise about 70 per cent of the peninsula. The summit focused on the importance of maintaining the environmental, agricultural, tourism and social integrity of the green wedge area with “balanced” planning and policies. SEW’s managing director Terri Benson and the mayor, Cr Bryan Payne last week issued a statement saying “the rapid growth of Melbourne’s population will significantly increase the im-

portance of agriculture on the peninsula and having a resilient water supply”. The statement went on to say: “The development of a coordinated water plan across the peninsula is a project of state significance that would benefit agriculture, tourism and the community and would play a major role in the protection of the green wedge, seen as being one of the most important environmental areas in Victoria.”

Tools theft blow to men’s shed Stephen Taylor steve@mpnews.com.au DROMANA Men’s Shed members are reeling after tools worth $12,000 were stolen from their Pier Street premises last week. Club vice-president Graeme Morris said the intruders may have cased the building as they were able to quickly disable CCTV cameras and even run off with the monitor – foiling attempts to identify them. The thefts occurred on Saturday or Sunday night, 23-24 June. Members were alerted by a woman walking her dog who saw the door open and raised the alarm on Monday morning. Mr Morris said the thieves caused extensive damage while gaining entry, bending steel doors with a crow bar and smashing door locks. A shipping container was also broken into and ransacked. The burglars turned off power to the shed before embarking on an hour-long stealing spree. They went from bench to bench, unscrewing and dismantling tools and equipment – electric and manual – before loading them into a wheelie bin which they pushed across the Nepean Highway overpass to a getaway car up to six times each way. A neighbour found the bin the next day on the other side of Nepean Highway. Detectives from Mornington Peninsula CIU who are investigating the burglary

were given a list over four foolscap pages of missing tools – with possibly more to come when the club’s 70 members do an audit. “Every time we start looking we find more things missing,” Mr Morris said. Some is high-end equipment, such as a nail-gun generator and Hitachi drop saw, but also missing are electric planes, belt sanders, clamps, biscuit cutters, drills, batteries and chargers, compressor leads, spray painting guns, hand saws, hammers and myriad other items still being assessed. “We’ve got to replace everything now,” Mr Morris said. “We’ve got to check our insurance policy and, of course, pay the $1000 excess before we can claim anything.” Mr Morris praised the staff at Bunnings Rosebud who donated a $300 drop saw and $200 drill as well as batteries and a charger. “They were so generous,” he said. While the burglary is being investigated, Mr Morris said he would lobby members for $20 each to pay the insurance excess and get their recovery back on track. “Everyone’s in favour of it,” he said. The club will now install new, tamperproof CCTV equipment, high up and protected by a steel cage. Anyone with information is urged to call Detective Leading Senior Constable Gary Emery on 5978 1300 or Crime Stoppers 1800 333 000.

Civic works on track

SPORTY types in Mornington can look forward to using a new athletics track and four soccer pitches at Civic Reserve, Mornington. The $6.25 million project had been made possible with a $3 million federal government community development grant, with the shire contributing $3.25 million. The council agreed at its meeting on Tuesday 26 June to accept a tender for the works. Construction is expected to begin in August and, hopefully, be completed by May next year. The improved facilities will better meet the needs of Mornington

Athletics Club, Mornington Little Athletics Club and Mt Martha Soccer Club, the council says. The reserve will feature a 400-metre all-weather athletics track, four full-size soccer pitches, space for a future pavilion, irrigation infrastructure and lighting for the soccer pitches. An extra 96 asphalt car parking spaces will be added to the 147 spaces currently being constructed. Pathways will connect the facilities to nearby residential areas, and there will be a stormwater basin, landscaping and buffer planting, and electrical upgrades. The works will be carried out as

part of council’s civic reserve master plan which requires facilities to meet the current and future needs of the community and sporting clubs. The mayor Cr Bryan Payne said the vision for Civic Reserve was to provide new athletics and soccer facilities that will improve its appearance, safety and amenity. He said the all-weather track would allow the athletes and little athletes to train and compete at an “international standard” facility. “Mt Martha Soccer Club has grown significantly over the past few years and now has more than 400 players,” he said.

Worm’s turn to help spot trees A CARTOON worm is being used to spearhead a campaign to involve the community in identifying “significant” trees on the Mornington Peninsula. While it can’t be said that Wilbur is providing backbone to the photographic endeavour, he is nonetheless being used to support Mornington Peninsula Shire’s efforts to increase the number of trees on its significant tree register. Photographs of “favourite trees” posted on the shire’s website will be considered for the register. There is also a three-level tree spotter puzzle to involve all the family in highlighting “the environmental importance of trees and the major role they play in the visual beauty of the peninsula”. The focus on trees follows last month’s Green Wedge Summit and the release for public comment of the Mornington Peninsula Green Wedge Management Plan. The mayor Cr Bryan Payne said trees play a major role in the “liveability” of the shire’s major urban activity centres, townships and coastal villages. “Access to trees, green spaces, streetscapes and parks promotes greater physical activity and reduces stress while improving the quality of life - a well-known concept acknowledged by medical authorities and town planners,” Cr Payne said. Green wedge-zoned areas on the peninsula covered 51,204 hectares, about 70 per cent of the shire. “More than 80 per cent of the land within the green wedge is in private ownership - some 4939 lots - which collectively have an important role in the environmental management of the green wedge area,” Cr Payne said. “One of the largest trees nominated to the national big tree register is a 30 metre high, 150-year-old oak with a five metre circumference trunk off Old Moorooduc Road, Tuerong.” The Green Wedge Summit on Friday 22 June at Main Ridge attended by over 120 residents focused on the importance of maintaining the environmental, agricultural, tourism and social integrity of the area with balanced planning and policies. Cr Payne said the Significant Tree Spotting program enables community members to photograph their favourite tree on their mobile phone anywhere within the shire and text it to treespotter@morpen.vic.gov.au Wilbur Worm’s Online Tree Spotter Puzzle is at greenwedge. mornpen.vic.gov.au/puzzle/ Keith Platt

Fake $50 notes have same serial number A MAN who handed over fake $50 notes at an outdoors store in Mornington may have handed over another fake note at a Berwick fast-food outlet. Senior Constable Jacinta Allen, of Mornington Peninsula CIU, said the serial numbers on the notes – CK14947940 – was the same used at both locations. She said on 26-27 May the man used two $50 notes to buy items at the BCF store in Mornington and then, on 29 May, placed a $5 order at a take away food outlet in Clyde Road, Berwick. The man paid for his order with a $50 note and received $45 in change before leaving the store – without bothering to take his food order.

A man who makes time for others Stephen Taylor steve@mpnews.com.au THE old adage: “If you want something done ask the busiest person to do it” could have been referring to Mornington man Roy Francis. Last year’s Victorian Senior of the Year, Mr Francis, 77, is a cancer survivor who, as the first volunteer ambassador of the Prostate Cancer Foundation of Australia, uses his diagnosis to promote prostate cancer awareness. He wants Mornington Peninsula seniors to follow his lead and nominate for the 2018 Victorian Senior of the Year Awards which close Friday 20 July. Mr Francis is an “inspiration to his community, regularly travelling throughout Victoria to share his story, making more than 750 cancer awareness presentations”, according to seniors spokesperson Madeleine Page. However, he has now had to “cut back” on his presentations. “After giving nearly 900 talks to 27,000 people or so, I seem to have covered everybody, certainly on the Mornington Peninsula.” Mr Francis has previously been president of Mornington Croquet Club, vice-president of Balnarring Picnic Racing Club and vicepresident of Mornington National Seniors. He was Morning-ton Lions Club Citizen of the Year 2015, and is the only Australian to receive the International Edward C Kaps Hope Award, presented in Chicago, for support group leadership.

He is now president of the Bentons Square Community Centre management committee alongside his wife, Helen, who is also on the committee. “We have a wonderful staff and group of volunteers here,” he said. He is also co-chair – again with Helen – of the new men’s health group at The Bays Hospital as well as a community speaker and “bowel screening champion” of the Cancer Council Victoria for his work in promoting bowel screening testing at home. “My greatest pleasure is seeing the enjoyment of the volunteers at the various organisations and groups with who I am involved,” Mr Francis said. The seniors’ awards honour the time, skills and support older Victorians have given to the community since turning 60. They also recognise businesses that create age-friendly environments. Award categories highlight seniors’ roles as mentors, educators, role models, leaders and behind-the-scenes workers. Individual awards include the Premier’s Award for Victorian Senior of the Year, Promotion of Multiculturalism Award, Healthy and Active Living Award, Veteran Community Award and Victorian Senior Achiever Awards. In recent years, older members of the Aboriginal community have been under-represented in the nomination process. Recipients of awards will be honoured at the 36th Victorian Seniors Festival at Government House in October.

to build this facility and we will do our part to support them with a $5 million investment to help with development and construction costs,” Mr Hunt said last week. His office confirmed the money would be provided through a funding agreement with the shire. It said the agreement included “milestones and timing of payments [which] will be negotiated with the council in coming weeks and will largely depend on project timings”. The estimated $43m centre will be built on shire land in Besgrove Street. The council says it is supporting a “fasttracked approach” to deliver the centre by September 2020.

FLINDERS MP Greg Hunt has promised the federal government will chip in $5 million for the proposed Rosebud Aquatic Centre. “For the past 15 years I have been supportive of the genuine need for improved aquatic facilities in the southern part of the Mornington Peninsula and to see this project start to take shape is truly extraordinary,” Mr Hunt said. (Mr Hunt was once photographed marching with placard-bearing ratepayers demanding the pool be built on the foreshore at Rosebud. The plan was eventually abandoned for not conforming with state government regulations governing buildings on the foreshore.) “This is an incredible endeavour by the shire

Dogs help primary reading TEACHING children to read before it’s too late is a passion for staff at Mt Martha Branch of Bendigo Bank. They are sponsoring this year’s Story Dog program, with Lucy the dog helping out pupils at Osborne and Mornington Park primary schools. Story dogs is not about dogs who can read, but kids who read to dogs, just like Lucy. The non-judgemental setting improves children’s focus while their literacy skills increase and their confidence soars. The accepting, loving nature of dogs gives this program its magic and helps children relax, open up, try harder and have fun while reading to a

friendly pal. Branch manager Kerry Debernardi said children sometimes went right through school without ever learning to read. He said underpinning the objectives of the program was the knowledge that those with reading difficulties often find themselves in a cycle of failure ensuring an ever-widening gap between themselves and fluent readers. The Story Dogs program was trialled at Murwillumbah East Public School in NSW in 2009. It so improved the reading abilities of participating students that it is now established in schools around Australia.

Draft The Pillars Mount Martha Long Term Management Plan You’re invited to provide comments on Mornington Peninsula Shire’s Draft The Pillars Mount Martha Long Term Management Plan. The Plan was developed in consultation with DELWP, Parks Victoria, Bunurong Land Council, Victoria Police, VicRoads, Ambulance Victoria, Mt Martha CFA, Mt Martha LSC, Life Saving Victoria and the community. It focuses on the long-term management of The Pillars and identifies options and actions to manage visitation at the site, and to protect the cultural and environmental values.

We are dedicated to the belief that a strong community newspaper is essential to a strong community. We exist to serve residents, community groups and businesses and ask for their support in return.

Getting out to beat the lonesome blues PENINSULA Social Club volunteer Michael Hillier is a man on a mission: He wants to end “social isolation and loneliness” among mainly elderly and those with disabilities on the Mornington Peninsula. The social club - part of the not for profit community transport service Peninsula Transport Assist - arranges social and lunch get-togethers designed to get its mainly elderly clients out of their houses and mingling with others in social settings. “Our mission is that nobody should be without company if they want it,” said Mr Hillier, who has run social activities for older people and those with disabilities for the past 20 years. He previously worked at the Brotherhood of St Laurence and admits to being “passionate about community development”. “The latest research shows social isolation and loneliness is as bad for you as smoking 15 cigarettes per day,” he said. “It contributes to an increased risk of heart disease, dementia and depression. It has a major effect on older people, particularly if they live alone, no longer drive or are recently widowed.” Those attending activities, such as luncheons and musicals, pay a flat rate of $25 to be escorted door to door. This covers the volunteer’s vehicle running costs and contributes to the cost of meals. “Everyone is welcome,” Mr Hillier said. “There are no age restrictions, and volunteer companions and drivers are there to help. The activities are suitable for all needs and fitness levels.” Invoices can be sent straight to a

Callout for art to help ‘save’ green wedge THE Mornington Peninsula can mean many things to many people. The 2016 census puts the peninsula’s population at 150,000, but the number on the ground is often much greater. Thousands visit on a daily basis all year and, over summer, the number of people staying overnight or for days at a time is in the tens of thousands. But what attracts these people residents and visitors - is under threat. Planning regulations decreed by state legislators seem to regard the peninsula’s towns and villages in much the same way as that of Melbourne’s inner suburbs, allowing for higher buildings and more dense development. Outside of the towns and villages,

in the peninsula’s so-called hinterland, the march of development over prime agricultural land is supposedly protected by green wedge zoning. But that too is under threat. Mornington Peninsula Shire last week held a “summit” to draw attention to the weakening of planning regulations and how this threatens green wedge-zoned areas, which are credited with being among the peninsula’s biggest attractions. As well as spending a day talking about the problem, the shire is looking for support from artists who draw inspiration from areas within the green wedge. Cr David Gill, who heads the art and culture community advisory panel,

is urging artists, “including students through to professionals”, to enter the 2018 Green Wedge Paint Out Exhibition. “We wish the world to know what a unique and important place the peninsula is and ask artists to showcase the many wonderful aspects of our green wedge rural and environmental areas of significance, which need to be protected from insensitive development.” Artists can register by Saturday 14 July and then take until early August to complete their work. Details are on the shire’s website under “art and culture” and Green Wedge Paint Out Exhibition or call 5950 1655. Keith Platt

Picture: Yanni No brush off: David Gill takes off his councillor’s hat in favour of an artist’s beret when he paints. His series of “geometric abstraction acrylics in flat plane style” is titled “Seasonal perspectives of the Mornington Peninsula Green Wedge”.

Kayakers in bay ‘rescue’ MT ELIZA man Bill Robinson got a shock when he saw what he thought was a man’s body floating face down in the water off Sunnyside beach last week. The retired veterinary surgeon, 74, was on a regular training paddle with Mornington friend Tamsin Visick, Tuesday 26 June, when they came across the wetsuit-clad figure on the way back to Mt Eliza. After the initial shock, they realised the wetsuit did not contain a real person and attached a line to it. “It was hard work getting it back to shore and we appreciated the difficulty we would have had in a reallife scenario, particularly in rougher conditions,” said Mr Robinson, who then called police. “We brought it in because, if it had stayed out there, it could have sparked a few false alarms. To see it from a light aircraft it looks like the real thing.” Mornington Senior Sergeant Neil Aubert said the “body” turned out to be a training dummy missing from an emergency services rescue exercise. He said police had traced the owner and it was later collected. Calls by The News to Volunteer Marine Rescue, Mornington, and Coast Guard Safety Beach, failed to find out who had lost it. The episode won’t quell Mr Robinson’s passion for sea kayaking. “I paddle between Mt Eliza and Mornington on a regular basis throughout the year,” he said.

Islanders oppose prison farm ‘vision’ FRENCH Island residents concerned about ambitious plans by Chinese investors to turn the rural hamlet into a “second Phillip Island” will discuss their fears with Hastings MP Neale Burgess this Sunday (1 July). Since the sale of the former McLeod Prison Farm to the Chinese Wufu Group last year for a reported $4 million, the islanders have heard rumours about the new owners wanting to remodel their investment into something like their much-busier neighbour. Members of the French Island Community Association want to make plain their opposition to the reported plans, with one saying: “This is not government policy and not what French Islanders want. “The reason most of us live here is that it is the quiet island – not like Phillip Island. In fact, several French Island residents are refugees from over-development and over-crowding.” Chinese business woman Xu Ziyun, CEO of Wufu Investments, Shanghai, met with state tourism minister John Eren last July to discuss future plans for the prison farm and the island generally, which she glowing referred to on her company’s website: “The [Victorian government] representatives suggested that we could make great efforts to develop tourism on the island of France (sic) and make her the second Phillip Island (the most popu-

STATE Tourism John Erin with Xu Ziyun, CEO of the company that has bought the historic McLeod prison farm on French Island.

lar tourist attraction in the area).” She said the state government “will fully cooperate with” Wufu and “hopes to take the French island into a key strategy” with Phillip Island. Also at the meeting were representatives of the Department of Economic Development, Jobs, Transport and Resources and Regional Development Victoria (RDV). A recent post on the Wufu website in Chinese said: “Our esteemed customers can soon look forward to a holiday on Wufu Island” – seemingly referring to French Island. “Not only do they want to impose a major tourist development upon this

island of 115 residents, they have already decided to re-name it,” the community group member said. The Wufu group is a primary service provider in China of elderly care, tourism, and the “cultural travelling industry”. Its stated plans for the island include: Turning the jail into a tourist centre and museum, and building a string of one-storey flats as a hostel, a business centre where “tourists can work at the same time as holidaying”, a Chinese herb farm, and, contentiously, establishing health facilities, such as hot springs, to “cure our body and mind”.

Swastikas ‘repugnant’, says civil rights group THE daubing of a red swastika on a gum tree outside Bittern train station has drawn condemnation from members of a leading civil rights organisation. Hastings police are also trying to track down the offenders. Anti-Defamation Commission chairman Dr Dvir Abramovich, who was sent photographs of the graffiti by an offended Bittern resident, Wednesday 20 June, described it as “repugnant”. “This repugnant Nazi graffiti is an assault on all residents of the Mornington Peninsula and violates our nation’s values of acceptance and respect for all people,” Dr Abramovich said. “The Nazi swastika is a universal symbol of hate that represents pure evil and, whenever such cowardly and despicable incidents happen, chilling emotional damage is done to all community members. “This is a sad and distressing reminder of the lengths people will go to express their unbridled bigotry and serves as a disturbing wake-up call that white supremacism and racism are on the rise in Victoria.” Dr Ambramovich said intolerance has no place in Australia. “It is critical that the message sent back to those who seek to spread division and intimidation is that they will not succeed. “The Anti-Defamation Commission encourages anyone with information to come forward. It is our hope that the perpetrators of this vandalism will be swiftly brought to justice.”

Sign of hate: Swastika graffiti scars this tree near Bittern station last week. Picture: Supplied

Hastings police sergeant Jason Wombwell said police were committed to investigating prejudice-motivated crime. “I encourage anyone subjected to this theme to report any instances to their local police,” he said. Anyone with information relating to the graffiti is urged to call Hastings police 5970 7800.

THE ART OF COASTAL LIVING THIS as new single-level beach residence has been architecturally designed to perfectly blend coastal aesthetics with contemporary luxury living. Spotted Gum shiplap cladding, rustic brickwork and Colorbond steel have all been used to great effect in creating a striking facade that is further complemented by the extensive timber decking that wraps around the home on its north and west faces. A wide entry showcases magnificent oak floors which extend throughout the home. The master bedroom with superb ensuite and walk-in robe is to the right and continuing along is a fine formal lounge highlighted by a dramatic reclaimed Hawthorn brick feature wall and open fire place. Two more bedrooms, both with built-in robes, sit either side of the main bathroom with classic freestanding stone bath, and then you majestically arrive in the enormous open plan family zone. Classic Australian beach lifestyle is all about the family and entertaining which is centred here on a stunning, beautifully appointed kitchen with Carrara marble island bench and benchtops. The seamless transition from the adjoining dining and lounge spaces to the spectacular outdoor living zone ensures you can celebrate every season and occasion. Walls of retractable glass doors are a practical design feature that opens up this entire space to the elements and the invigorating sea air, with the waters of Bass Strait providing a constant reminder of the coastal rawness of this pristine part of the peninsula. Complete with an outdoor kitchen, this fully enclosed outdoor room includes a sheltered lounge, with strip heating and ceiling fan, that overlooks the solar heated pool and separate spa. A fourth bedroom, also with ensuite and walk-in robe is set up for guests and there is a study alcove set into the hallway near the formal lounge. From the street, remote controlled gates guard a polished concrete driveway which leads to a splendid four car garage with internal access.n

Anglers off the hook

Dynasty reappraised

Stephen Taylor steve@mpnews.com.au WESTERNPORT Angling Club members are relieved their longestablished clubhouse will be allowed to remain in Marine Parade, Hastings, next to the boat ramp. This follows the passing of an amendment at last week’s Mornington Peninsula Shire Council meeting which changed the draft Hastings Foreshore Precinct Plan against the recommendations of planning staff. The 70-member club’s building was under threat to make way for a redesigned car park. Any forced relocation would have been particularly irksome because the clubhouse was built with money raised by club members. Shire planning staff had recommended the re-siting in line with the Victorian Coastal Strategy which states that “existing buildings and infrastructure that do not need to be located on the coast are, to the extent practical, relocated away from coastal Crown land when suitable opportunities arise”. Club members had previously presented a 750-signature petition objecting to the adoption of all aspects of the plan, while slamming its proposed parking provisions as “crazy”.

Staying put: Westernport Angling Club members relax after hearing their clubhouse can stay put. Picture: Yanni Angling club official Don Newman said the draft plan would have led to fewer trailer parking spaces in the overflow area, several intersections which would “create conflict”, “crazy” routing of the roadway from most parking bays to the ramp when retrieving boats, drivers negotiating up to one-and-a-half circuits around the outside of the parking area via several “Give Way” intersections, acute turns into the parking bay rows “made more difficult when towing a trailer”, and two parallel “waiting to launch/retrieve lanes” tipped to cause “ramp rage” on busy days – all without reducing waiting times. Mr Newman said a proposed parking lane at the fish cleaning table would only accommodate two trailer rigs, instead of seven as now, while a pedestrian walkway on the southern boundary of the yacht club would “encourage inexperienced people into the dangerous boat ramp area”.

The packed gallery applauded the success of the amendment moved by Cr David Gill. “The draft Hastings Foreshore Precinct Plan was accepted with the exception of moving the angling club and toilet block which will remain where they are,” he said later. “Generally, the draft precinct plan is fine and we want to keep going with the redesign of the boat ramp and with a grant application to the state government. “However, we will have to keep working on a redesign of the car park because it was predicated on the angling club and toilet block not being there.” Mr Newman said club members were annoyed the revamped precinct plan was only posted on the shire’s website just six days before it was voted on at the Tuesday 26 June meeting. He said the club had submitted an alternative parking plan to the shire in

April, which retained the public toilet and club building, “without [receiving] any feedback”. The club would now work with shire planners to find a “workable solution” for the boat ramp and trailer parking design, he said. Shire planner Jeska Dee stated in the council agenda that the foreshore precinct plan was “in line with the Hastings south foreshore coastal management plan and state government policies and strategies”. She said the plan had attracted 150 submissions during the public exhibition period. A drop-in session on 21 September was attended by community members and the draft plan was developed with “extensive community consultation and input”. “Where appropriate, feedback received … has been incorporated into the plan … which would improve the amenity and sustainability of the Hastings foreshore reserve.”

MORNINGTON’S Australian Decorative and Fine Arts Society members will hear about Imperial China in the 18th century when David Rosier addresses their meeting on Friday 6 July. Mr Rosier’s talk Ruling from behind the Yellow Silk Screen will focus on the Dowager Empress Cixi (1835-1908). An author and lecturer with 25 years’ experience of East Asia, Mr Rosier is a past committee member of the Hong Kong Textile Society, and lecturer on Chinese imperial government and emperors of the Qing Dynasty. Empress Cixi is often portrayed as an evil, cruel, calculating tyrant who resisted all attempts to modernise and industrialise China. Although she has been blamed for the downfall of the Qing Dynasty, historians are now reappraising her life and suggesting her opponents perpetuated her bad image. The lecture seeks to provide a balanced insight into Cixi’s life and her achievements as ruler over one third of the world’s population. New members are welcome to join ADFAS. The first lecture is free. They are held at the Peninsula Community Theatre, Wilsons Road, Mornington, 5.30pm, Fridays. Bookings: Glad Hungerford 9787 2092. Details: Vicky Davison 0407 810 877.

Letters - 300 words maximum and including full name, address and contact number - can be sent to The News, PO Box 588, Hastings 3915 or emailed to: team@mpnews.com.au an export terminal company. This confirms Premier Daniel Andrews’s statement on the radio recently that the “Australian gas market is so broken”. This broken system is allowing AGL to sell our gas overseas at a huge profit and then import excess international, cheaper gas into Crib Point, again making huge profits. All this at the expense of Western Port’s Ramsar listed wetlands and UNESCO-designated biosphere reserve and the safety of the Crib Point community, which will have the threat of fire and explosion hanging over our heads. In December 2014 the Federal Court found that AGL in South Australia made false or misleading representations and engaged in misleading or deceptive conduct and was fined $1.555 million for the breach. The NSW Land Environment Court in January 2017 fined AGL $124,000 for failing to disclose 11 political donations when making a planning application in NSW. Rod Knowles, Crib Point

Forget propaganda, protect kangaroos I am writing to alert the Mornington Peninsula residents of the mistreatment of our beautiful, majestic native animal, the eastern grey kangaroo. After to watching the documentary Kangaroo: A Love Hate Story, I was ashamed to be Australian. This documentary showed the cruelty and misconceptions that the Australian public has been brainwashed with for the past 100 years. I was so shocked and sickened by what I saw, such as joeys heads being bashed. It is ironic that the kangaroo is on our national emblem and the name of many of our sports teams. Kangaroos on the Mornington Peninsula are a tourist attraction. If tourists knew what is happening to kangaroos they would horrified. Kangaroos on the peninsula are being fenced out because of increasing development; they are being shot; and hit by cars. Vegetable growers and vineyards as well as farmers get permits to shoot kangaroos. Other people don’t bother with a permit and just shoot them for fun. Words like culling instead of slaughtering are used, although the peninsula’s kangaroo population is decreasing. There used to be kangaroos at Mt Eliza, but not anymore. Farmers continue to be seen by Australians as the backbone of the country, but farmers need to understand that kangaroos don’t eat the same part of the grass as cows, sheep and horses. They could all live happily together. According to the makers of this documentary, kangaroo meat found in supermarkets has been found to contain E. coli and salmonella. No wonder if after being shot and killed the kangaroos are being hung off the back of a ute (in the heat) for seven or eight hours. Kangaroos are beautiful animals that need to be protected. I encourage peninsula residents to stop being brainwashed by propaganda that has been fed to them for years. Mary Waterman, Arthurs Seat

Violence link People are rightly outraged at the light sentence handed out to a man convicted in the Burnie court of beating at least six fairy penguins to death with a stick on Sulphur Creek beach on New Year’s Day. The magistrate described this as a “callous act” on an “easy target” and said that the attack must have continued for several minutes. Although the magistrate pointed out that the man had shown no remorse, she imposed a penalty of just 49 days’ community service and costs of $82. Penalties for cases of cruelty are rarely imposed to the full extent of the law – under Tasmania’s Animal Welfare Act, animal cruelty can result in fines of $26,000 or imprisonment for up to one and a half years. A spokesperson for Because animals cannot report abuse and can do little to fight back, they’re often used as “practice” victims by violent people. Research in psychology and criminology shows that people who commit acts of cruelty against animals

often go on to commit violent acts against their fellow humans. A study by Dr John Clarke, a lecturer in psychology at the University of Sydney and consultant to the NSW police, demonstrated, using police data, that 61.5 per cent of convicted animal abuse offenders had also committed an assault and 17 per cent were guilty of sexual abuse. Most disturbingly, animal abuse was a better predictor of sexual assault than previous convictions for homicide, arson, or firearms offences. Only one per cent of cruelty-to-animals offenders had no other convictions at all. It’s time that this country started to treat cases of cruelty to animals as the serious crimes that they are. If you suspect someone of abusing an animal, report it to authorities right away, for the safety of humans and non-humans alike. Desmond Bellamy, PETA Australia

Takes one to know one Colin Watson’s detailing of many of Mornington Peninsula Shire CEO’s achievements over the past four years got me wondering as to why the council just did not reappoint him for a further term, rather than go through a comprehensive (and no doubt costly) recruitment campaign (“Reappoint CEO” Letters 26/6/18). I believe the answer lies in comments attributed to the mayor Cr Bryan Payne in the article “Market test for CEO’s job” (The News 19/6/18). As we have been made aware, Cr Payne has undertaken several municipal CEO roles and should know only too well what constitutes a good performing CEO. Indeed, Cr Payne stated that “...it will take a very good person to match what he (Mr Cowie) has done”. So, for Cr Payne to say that the council was “reasserting control” over how the shire has been run by its officers, he is basically saying that Cowie & Co have not been beholden to the council, but rather just getting on with job in an efficient and effective manner, which the ratepayers of the shire expect and Cr Payne, on behalf of the council, concurs. I would be very surprised if Cr Payne, during his numerous tenures as a CEO in local government, did not go about his work in exactly the same way as Mr Cowie has done and to only involve councillors in those matters that council is required to determine under the relevant local government statutes. Maybe Mr Cowie is far better at the CEO “game” than what Cr Payne was, hence the need for him (on behalf of all his fellow councillors?) to “reassert control”? Such a move is hardly in the best interest of all ratepayers. Stuart Allen, Dromana

AGL’s record The Federal Minister for the Environment and Energy Josh Frydenberg has criticised AGL for its decision to build a new gas import terminal at Crib Point, saying it short-changed its, customers it is short-sighted and irresponsible. He slammed AGL for its 2015 sale of 254 petajoules of gas, enough to power NSW for two years, to

Plug gas plan I would like senators to know my most sincere objection to AGL’s proposal to berth a floating regasification and storage facility (FSRU) at Crib Point is based on the following: If by endorsing this proposal I endorse the federal government’s policy of not having a domestic gas preservation policy. I’m not going to be party to anything that is going to expose my local community and area to such an environmental hazard as well as fire and explosion hazard. I’m not going to endorse a greenhouse intensive operation that has no identified governance by the National Offshore Petroleum Greenhouse Gas Storage act (2009). I’m not going to endorse such a facility within a Ramsar listed area. I’m not going to endorse the increased use of foreign shipping and labour on Australian coastal trading routes and I’m not going to condone the addition of easements on top of existing gas pipeline easements through privately owned agricultural land between Tyabb and Pakenham. Australia has enough gas, and environment minister Josh Frydenberg has said the Northern Territory has 200 years worth of natural gas and, with the completion of the northern gas pipeline linking Tennant Creek to Mt Isa due in September 2018, and the Northern Territory government dropping its moratorium on fracking, there is nothing stopping that gas or any further fields opened going to export. Also, Western Australia has a domestic gas preservation policy with successful commercial investment and has identified the east coast market as being short of gas in 2018. This is the only market in the world where oil and gas companies have free rein on the volumes they can export to international markets. Grant Bradbury, Somers

Quarry reopen bid Are the $10,000 000 donations made on the Mornington Peninsula by the Ross Trust made in contrition? I saw the amenity of Balnarring Beach being threatened when in the late 1990s, the trust was going to develop a slab of rural land into housing blocks. Luckily, the land was only split up into larger lots. Now it seems it’s Dromana’s turn again. After failing to turn the old Boundary Road quarry into a rubbish tip some years ago, the trust is now trying the good old political arm twist to get its way to re-start quarrying. All this while ignoring the trust’s main purpose: to look after the environment. Rupert Steiner, Balnarring Beach

Beach cleaner As a new bayside resident I was looking forward to long walks along our beautiful coastline. But, rather than enjoying my gentle strolls, I have become that strange lady you may have seen wandering along the beach muttering to herself as she picks up rubbish. Plastic bottle tops, torn lolly wrappers, straws, “disposable” coffee cups and their tops, soft drink containers, yesterday a half drunk cup of coffee left neatly beside the sea, building site debris, bits of cellophane, tomato sauce sachets, take away containers, three parking tickets today. Sunny days bring picnic remnants and, after heavy rain, the rubbish thrown onto the streets travels down the stormwater drains to the beach. It is easy to collect a large bag full each day

between Granya Grove and Canadian Bay Road, and another between Canadian Bay Road and Daveys Bay roads, Mt Eliza. Can I suggest: 1 The council places bins at beach level near major roads. People often seem to prefer to leave their rubbish on the beach rather than walk up steps to roadside bins. I know it would add five minutes a bin for the rubbish collectors, but the effect would be worth it. 2. We all use the bins provided, or take our rubbish home. Yes, it may just be one small lolly wrapper, drink bottle top or straw. But when the beach is covered in hundreds of them, all sparking in the sun, the peninsula looks like a developing country which has yet to have an efficient garbage collection service. 3. We remember that rubbish dropped on the street ends up in the bay. I am at risk of walking along the streets picking up rubbish from the gutters so it does not end up in the sea. Please save me from this final act of eccentricity. Margaret Rogers, Mt Eliza

Corporate raiders Why is the Dow Jones and the ASX thriving just exactly the opposite of what worldwide conditions should be dictating (trade wars, for example)? You might reason that it is [US president Donald] Trump’s tax cuts to the corporate mafia, and that would be a valid conclusion but, unfortunately, with the wrong reasoning. It is not the tax cuts themselves that are causing the unexplainable spike in the Dow and ASX. But, the tax cuts have enabled the corporate mafia to bring dollars back to the US, become cash rich and buy their own stock back from the market. So this causes prices to rise as there is less in the open market. And who benefits? No workers; it is the executives who own large blocks of the stock or have options at ridiculously low prices on more large block which they can now buy at an instant huge profit. And of course the ASX lamely follows the US lead. With the tax cuts to the Australian corporate mafia we can expect the same behaviour here, except we will not influence the world stock markets as US does. Anyone who has actually followed what has happened in US can expect the same here. A sham is a sham. When this process is finished (corporate mafia lining its pockets) we can expect an adjustment in the market and a lot of money lost by small investors. The question is: when to dump your stock before this adjustment happens. Joe Lenzo, Safety Beach

Treasured memories I thought of our Treasurer Scott Morrison when I heard of Telstra shedding 8000 jobs, wondering about the long wait in the light of his “trickle down” nonsense. In July 2019 the pension age reaches 66. How tough must it be when you lose your job late 50s managing on a Newstart allowance? Our beloved treasurer surely requires a certain intellectual level to be able to rabbit on as he does for an unstoppable five minutes on any given subject thrown his way. And yet, wandering back through my past years I’m reminded of former bosses supposedly as intelligent as our treasurer? Years past in the Attorney-General’s Department and public service bosses wearing those same suits all year round, more years working for totalisator companies (and my contact as a union delegate with totalisator suits and highly placed government officials), also as an actor under various knowledgeable directors and producers, particularly those trained at VCA or NIDA. What sticks out is a basic fact of life. Namely, the risks we take (throughout) of being broken by the stupidity of our (apparent) superiors. Broken is likely overstating the point; more a case of walking away. How they got to be where they are? It’s castles; always has been. Likely they were all more intelligent than me (or not) but castles, a result of some cunning one or two realising the benefits, the power, of agreeable yes men or women. I’ve lost count the number of times I wrote off (ignored) an ignorant boss in a position of superiority, albeit occasionally self-handicapped after deciding to embarrass the him or her; never a wise move?

100 YEARS AGO THIS WEEK...

Frankston soldier suffers shell wounds Compiled by Brodie Cowburn PTE. R. Deane, of Frankston, was officially reported admitted to Royal Herbert Hospital, Woolwich, England, on 25 May 1918, suffering from severe shell wounds in left knee. *** IN the latest casualty list published appear the names of the following Peninsula soldiers who have been wounded: Ptes. A. B. Cleane, Flinders; N. R. Houfe, Tyabb,;and J. Lyons, Pearcedale. *** HEAR that talented actress, Miss Langley supported by a powerful company at the Frankston Concert for the soldier boys in the Mechanics’ Hall this evening. *** IT is quite on the cards that if a Progress Association is formed in Frankston that funds will be organised for a costly brick pavilion for the Frankston Park, and the various entertainments and amusements will be organised for local and Red Cross objects. A proposal has also been mooted for a “Home Coming to Frankston” of all former and old residents of the district, when Frankston would probably have a gala week. *** ON Friday, July 12th, Rev. J. C. Farquahar and Capt. H Brew will visit Frankston, and in the afternoon will meet the committees of the Mordialloc, Mornington, Somerville, and Frankston branches of the Protestant Federation and form a district council. They will be entertained at tea by

the lady members of the Frankston branch. In the evening a public meeting will be held in the hall, when the Rev. Farquahar and Captain. Brew will deliver addresses. *** WHAT promises to be one of the very best programmes ever submitted in Frankston will be produced sharp at 8pm this evening in the Mechanics’ Hall, in aid of the Langwarrin Military Training Camp Fund. Excellent Melbourne Artists, known as the famous Meery Eight Company The Langwarrin Military Orchestra will render selections from a quarter to eight and patrons are advised to secure their seats early as tickets have been selling very freely. *** NOW that it has been decided by the residents of Frankston to plant an Honor Avenue to perpetuate the memory of those lads who enlisted from Frankston and district, in defence of their King and Country, the committee which has been appointed to carry it into effect, confidently ask those interested in the movement to assist them in bringing it to a successful issue. The expense in preparing the ground, fencing, procuring trees and having an inscribed tablet for each one is considerable. As the function takes place next week the committee would be pleased if those intending to contribute to the cost would forward their contributions to the Hon. secretary at the “Standard” office within the next few days. They make this appeal feeling sure that it will be taken up in the spirit in which

it is meant, and that the response accorded will be a liberal one. *** ON Saturday last the annual sale of gifts, to help provide funds for the upkeep of the missionary in New Guinea, was held in the Methodist schoolroom Frankston. Miss Carr and her assistants worked hard and a brisk trade was done, so that a substantial sum should be added to the fund. *** THERE was a splendid attendance at the euchre party and dance held at Frankston under the auspices of the Wattle Club on Thursday evening. At these fixtures patrons are assured an enjoyable time, and they are gaining rapidly in popularity. Sixteen tables were engaged for the euchre tournament on the last occasion and the prizes were won by Miss D. Gregory and Mr. Bert McSweeney. After supper provided by the club members, a most enjoyable dance was held. *** MEMBERS of Red Cross and other patriotic societies have long been penalised by the extraordiraily high price of knitting wool, which rendered the making of socks for the men in the trenches a heavy extra drain up on the finances. At the meeting of the Victorian division of the Red Cross Society on Thursday this matter was referred to by a representative of a country branch, who asked whether the executive could do nothing in the matter. Wool that could be obtained in 1915 for £6 2s now cost £9 14s, and yet

it was essential that wool should be obtained. *** MESSRS Alex Scott & Co. will hold a clearing sale on account of Mr E. R. Ridgers, Balnarring, today (Sat.) at 1 o’clock sharp, when horses, cow, pigs, poultry, and sundries will be offered. *** A FATALITY accompanied by pathetic incidents occurred last night on the Gong Gong road, the victim being John Henry Renouf, residing at Eastwood street. It appears that Renouf, accompanied by William Tainsh and Thomas Johns,—the three being telegraph and telephone linesmen had been working in the Gong Gong district for a short period on repairs, alterations etc. On Tuesday night about 5.15 o’clock the three men left the Gong to ride into Ballarat to their homes. Johns and Tainsh were about a quarter of a mile ahead of Renouf when coming past Black Hill along Humffray street and as Renouf’s machine had given him trouble on the way out owing, it is said to a faulty pedal, Tainsh rode back to see if his mate was in difficulties. He found Renouf leaning against a fence rather dazed, but able to answer questions. He told Tainsh that the fork of his bicycle had snapped and he had been thrown, but was not hurt. A cab came along about this time and the broken bicycle was placed on it and Renouf was driven home, leaving his machine at the shop to be repaired. Shortly after Renouf reached home he lapsed into unconsciousness. Dr.

Soter was sent for, and he advised the man’s removal to the hospital. Mrs Renouf took her husband there, and Dr Sanderson admitted him for treatment. Renouf however never regained consciousness, and died at 5 o’clock on Wednesday morning. The cause of death is stated to have been laceration of the brain. The matter was reported to Sergt. Priest, of Ballarat South, and under his direction Const. Stewart made enquiries which elicited the above facts, and laid them before the district coroner, Mr Harris, P M., who, as the hospital authorities had given a certificate, judged an inquest not to be necessary, and issued an order for burial. The deceased, who was a son of Mr and Mrs F. Renouf, of Frankston, had only been married nine months, and the deepest sympathy is expressed with the young wife, parents and relatives, in their sad and sudden bereavement. *** EVERYTHING points to a successful function at Frankston on Saturday next, when the tree planting ceremony to honor the boys who have enlisted from the district, will take place. Next week the grading and fencing will be undertaken, and everything should be ready by the time appointed. The Volunteer Motor Corps are bringing along a large number of returned soldiers, and they will be accompanied by the State Governor. *** From the pages of the Mornington Standard, 6 July 1918

Do you suffer foot, knee or leg pain? Sore Feet or Legs? Occupational Therapy at St John of God Call OUR feet and legs are vital for mobility and balance and are the basis of most of our daily activities, so its no wonder most people suffer foot, knee or leg pain at some point in their lives. But what can you do about it? We asked the experts at Foot & Leg Pain Clinics to shed some light on common foot and leg concerns: n The most common concerns include: knee pain, injuries and arthritis; heel, shin or forefoot pain; ankle and achilles concerns. n Many conditions are misdiagnosed and incorrectly treated, so its important to find an experienced musculoskeletal or sports podiatrist to assist. n Bad foot posture can continually pull your body out of alignment, which can contribute to postural aches / pains and undue stress on joints and tissues. n Early symptoms for diabetes, arthritis, nerve and circulatory problems often show themselves initially in the feet. n Traditional treatments such as cortisone, anti-inflammatory medications and joint arthroscopies are now outdated for many conditions such as joint arthritis and injuries, and have been found to delay healing and cause further tissue damage in many cases. n Regenerative medicine is now superseding the pharmaceutical and surgical approach, providing us with natural, safe and effective

PABLO® Handsensor – modern technology assisting Stroke patients IN Australia, someone will have a stroke, every 9 minutes.* In 80% of these cases, damage to the central nervous system reduces the ability to move certain parts of the body, including the arm and hand. Therapeutic intervention aims to facilitate return of movement to the affected areas. Advanced technologies that support movement therapy have the potential to shorten therapy times and raise the quality of recovery after a stroke and may lead to a return to work in some cases. St John of God Frankston Rehabilitation Hospital is one of only three sites in Victoria that has a PABLO® system. This system is a modern assessment and therapy device used for the rehabilitation of people with impaired motor functions. Generally used for the neurological rehabilitation of the arm and hand, its function is based on neuroplasticity the brain’s basic ability to reorganise itself - allowing intact brain areas to take over the tasks of damaged areas, through targeted stimulation of the intact areas. The PABLO® Handsensor is a real all-rounder: It is a hand-arm therapy and assessment device in one. It provides training for all handgrip movements, and traces the strength of the hand and range of motion. Even small movement or force improvements become visible. This is highly motivating for patients who ordinarily wouldn’t be able to see such small improvements. There is a large variety of interactive therapy games to choose from. Each of which are displayed

on a computer screen and can be individually adapted to suit each person’s personal needs. Once engaged with the games, patients often claim “this is fun….I can’t believe it’s therapy!” This level of engagement stimulates the motor

learning process and helps the patient to perform the high numbers of active repetitions required to drive neuroplasticity. The PABLO® system is one of many tools used by therapists at St John of God Frankston Rehabilitation

Hospital to help patients in their recovery from a stroke. For more information about their facilities, services or programs please call 9788 3333. Referrals: Outpatient referrals can be sent to:

THE MEANING OF EXISTENCE... AND OTHER SHORT STORIES

Confessions of a Beverage Snob By Stuart McCullough EVEN I was shocked. Some things, once said, cannot be forgotten. Even if not written down, they live on in the memory of those unfortunate enough to have heard them. They’re permanent. Words, once they leap over your lips and escape past your teeth, can never be caught. To hear my own voice speaking the unspeakable was an existential jolt to the system from which I may never recover. I began to question everything. How did it come to this? What kind of monster have I become? Is it too late to change my order? Because never in my wildest dreams would I have thought I’d ever utter the following words: I’ll have a skinny decaf flat white, thanks. I’m not sure how it came to this. One day, you’re completely normal. The next you’re ordering a coffee that has more names than an Oxfordeducated scrum half. It’s a simply diabolical state of affairs, no matter how you slice it. At least I didn’t ask for almond milk. That would have been a bridge too far over troubled water. Granted, that very same troubled water would soon be water under the bridge, unless of course I elect to cross that bridge when I come to it; an act that is, of itself, delayed because I’ve decided to stop for coffee. You can see why I’m worried. On the one hand, the heart wants what it wants. If that’s a warm beverage that takes longer to say than it does to drink, so be it. On the other hand, there are some things that are rightly the subject of ridicule because

they crash through the boundaries of decency. Even I knew I’d gone too far. This was made clear to me when the waitress reacted to my order by looking incredibly disappointed. Discouraged even. In fact, now that I think about it, there may well have been a tear in the corner of her eye. It wasn’t always this way. There are many things that make

my family what it is. We share common values, a sense of humour and an almost uncanny ability to park crookedly. So much so that my brother and I have taken to texting each other whenever we manage to get the car even remotely within the lines. Some mornings, I’ll pick up my phone to find a text message from my brother

that consists only of a photo of his car parked neatly in a parking bay. I always compliment him on his skills and never point out that, technically speaking, he ought to parked front to back and not side on as he has inevitably elected to do. The other thing we have in common is coffee. The standard McCullough order is simple: white with one. That’s been the standing order for decades. Despite this, whenever my father puts the kettle on, he still asks how I take my coffee. As though I might have changed my mind. Or, worse still, that even though it’s the same way that he takes his coffee, my father hasn’t yet committed my order to memory. For many years, our coffee of choice was International Roast. Even the name was cosmopolitan. We were devotees of the standard edition beverage rather than the more upscale (and supersized) caterer’s blend. This was unkindly referred to as ‘instant coffee’ notwithstanding that it might permanently damage your taste buds and that the aftertaste lingered like graffiti on your metaphorical gustatory walls. Little wonder we decided to upgrade. From International Roast, we moved on to Blend 43. I’ve no idea what happened to the other forty-two blends. Best not to think about it. It even looked fundamentally different to International Roast. Instead of a fine powder that both looked and tasted like something developed in a cold-war laboratory, Blend 43 was a far more granular affair. Which made

it seem more genuine. This was fine until Moccona blew our minds. Suddenly, Blend 43 was the acid wash denim of the beverage world. But through it all, my order remained the same: white with one. Then coffee became something you bought when you were out, rather than something made around the kitchen bench. And, quite frankly, once I experienced coffee as made by a trained professional rather than, say, my father, it was pretty hard to go back. Like lots of people, coffee became part of my daily routine. And, frankly, I’m spoiled for choice. So much so, that simply saying ‘white with one’ is no longer an option. I can’t imagine the reaction that’d get from my barista. Doubtless, he’d have to do all he could to not unravel his man-bun and try to throttle me. But it’s not just a case of ‘how did I get here’? It’s also a matter of ‘where am I going?’ If my coffee journey started at International Roast and has arrived at a decaf skinny flat white, goodness knows where I’ll end up. Before I know it, I’ll be demanding cold-filtered organic coffee that’s been slow-dripped into a beaker over eighteen agonizing days by a Nobelprize winning organic-certified barista with soy milk, a dash of cold water and topped off with truffle shavings and a caramel drizzle. At that point, my transformation will be complete. And as I sit down with my coffee and gaze off into the middle distance, I’ll be sure to stop and think for a moment: who on earth am I? stuart@stuartmccullough.com

VIKA & LINDA BULL MAKE GRAND RETURN RETURNING to the Grand Hotel Mornington, soulful powerhouse sisters – Vika & Linda Bull. For 30 years, the glorious voices of Vika and Linda Bull have comprised one of the most distinctive, versatile and emotionally charged sounds on the Australian music landscape. Since their multi-platinum conquest of pop radio with the Black Sorrows in the late 1980s, the sisters have forged diverse pathways into soul, gospel, blues, country and the island music of their Tongan ancestry. By turns tender and powerful, their rich solo vocals and instinctive harmonies have spawned eight albums of their own, as well as illuminating studio and concert performances by Paul Kelly, Rockwiz, C.W. Stoneking, Deborah Conway, Kasey Chambers and many more. Their invitation to join Joe Camilleri’s Black Sorrows ushered in that band’s most successful era: Hold Onto Me, Harley and Rose and Better Times were all tripleplatinum albums between ‘88 and ‘92, and the sisters’ prominent vocals captivated massive audiences, here and worldwide. Vika & Linda, their debut album of 1994, was produced by Paul Kelly and written by some of the most accomplished songwriters of the era, including Paul Kelly, Joe Camilleri, Stephen Cummings, Mark Seymour and Nick Barker. The next decade found the sisters embracing a range of

HUMANS - A STIRRING JOURNEY OF WHAT IT MEANS TO BE HUMAN TEN acrobats take us on a stiring journey of what it means to be human, and of how our bodies, our connections, and our aspirations all form part of who we are. Exploring the physical limits of their bodies as they are pushed to the extreme they question how much we can take as humans. How much weight can we carry? Who can we trust to support our

load? They lead us to reflect on our lives, our loved ones, the burdens we carry and the physical and emotional strength it takes to overcome them. Created by Yaron Lifschitz, the stage is stripped bare as the vulnerability of a team of highly skilled acrobats is exposed. With incredible strength and integrity they connect each moment seamlessly with the next in a

thrilling and heart-stopping performance. Glimpse their humanity as they as they find redemptive power in strength and celebrate what it means to be fiercely human. Humans - FAC Theatre Wednesday 22 August, 8pm Bookings: 03 9784 1060 or thefac.com.au

scoreboard Stonecats slide to six match slump MORNINGTON NEWS

DIVISION ONE

By Brodie Cowburn FRANKSTON YCW suffered a thrilling three point loss to Bonbeach this Saturday, which sees their streak of games without a win in MPNFL Division One stretch to a stunning six matches. After their match was called off last week due to an injury, the Stonecats were looking to snap their bad run of form against a Bonbeach side that has struggled at times this season. Frankston YCW got off to a strong start and took a nine point lead into the first break, but Bonbeach were not going to let the game get away from them. After the ball bounced to kick off proceedings in the second term, Bonbeach quickly kicked their way back into the game, and kept in touch with the Stonecats all day. Bonbeach reduced the lead to just three points at half time, and they went on to take the lead and go into the final break with a three point advantage of their own. A nail biting final quarter saw only two scoring shots registered, as both sides worked tirelessly to grasp desperately needed wins. As the final siren sounded, it was Bonbeach who just had their noses ahead, as they gained a stunning victory over Frankston YCW 9.7 (61) to 8.10 (58). The shock result for Frankston YCW sees them stumble to fifth place, uncharted territory for a side that is used to sitting comfortably in the top positions of the ladder. They take on fourth place Frankston Bombers in a vital

Picture: Andrew Hurst

clash at Greg Beck Oval next week. Around the grounds, Mornington came close to pulling off the upset of the season, as they made EdithvaleAspendale work hard for a gritty victory. Mornington shocked their highly fancied opponents by racing out of the gates, kicking five goals to two in a one sided first quarter. Not willing to go down without a fight, Edithvale-Aspendale stormed the second quarter with an impressive

display of their own, as they kicked six goals to Mornington’s one to wrestle back the lead. In difficult conditions, it became clear that one end was certainly the favourable scoring end, as Mornington went on to reclaim their lead by the threequarter time break, but only by a narrow six point margin. The ninth place Bulldogs were desperate to claim the win, but ultimately the strength of Edithvale-Aspendale overpowered them in the final term, as

they bested the Bulldogs 12.8 (80) to 13.13 (91). The win takes Edithvale-Aspendale to second place on the ladder, one game behind Sorrento. Last weekend Edithvale-Aspendale also claimed a hard fought victory, as they took on Pines in a thrilling encounter. The contest swung back and forth throughout the day, but as the final siren sounded it was EdithvaleAspendale who found themselves just ahead. The score finished Pines 12.17 (89) to Edithvale-Aspendale 14.6 (90). At Olympic Oval, Rosebud played host to in form ladder leaders Sorrento. Sorrento were boosted by the return of tall forward Chris Dawes, a welcomed addition to a side that was already strong as it was. The Sharks flexed their muscle with a dominant showing in the first half, as they went into the main break with a comfortable 37 point advantage. Lowly Rosebud were able to show some signs of fight in the second half, but exited the contest with nothing to show for it, as they succumbed to Sorrento 9.9 (63) to 15.12 (102). It was a complete team performance from the Sharks, with Zach Byrns, Nick Corp, and Chris Dawes kicking three goals each. The win keeps the Sharks a game clear on top of the ladder and caps off a good week for Sorrento, as they confirmed during the week that they had locked in playing coach Luke Tapscott to continue coaching the club next season. Belvedere Reserve also saw action on Saturday, as bottom of the ladder

Seaford hosted Frankston Bombers. Despite entering the contest with just one win to their name, Seaford looked the better team in the early stages of the contest, as they went into the quarter time break with a four point lead. Although they looked as if they might provide some fight in the first quarter, Frankston Bombers quickly asserted their authority on the match, as they kicked away with a seven goal to one second quarter that put Seaford out of the contest. Seaford could not cut back the lead throughout the rest of the afternoon, as Frankston Bombers ran out convincing victors 10.5 (65) to 15.14 (104). Curtis Baker performed valiantly for the losing side with five goals, while Jay Reynolds and Sam Fox both booted five majors each for the victors. Fox has now booted ten goals in his last two games. In the final match of Division One this weekend, Pines took on Mt Eliza at Eric Bell Reserve. Pines were coming off a heartbreaking one point loss to Edithvale-Aspendale last weekend, and were looking to bounce back with a win. The contest was an even one, with the margin only standing at three points in Pines’ favour at the three-quarter time break. Despite looking set to go down to the wire, Mt Eliza showed their class and quality in the final term to run away with that game, with the score finishing 7.15 (57) to 11.9 (75) in Mt Eliza’s favour.

Impressive Kangaroos upset Bulls DIVISION TWO

By Brodie Cowburn LANGWARRIN have battled hard to secure an upset victory against Karingal at Lloyd Park in MPNFL Division Two football on Saturday. The Kangaroos started quickly and put themselves in the box seat with a dominant first half, thanks in part to a standout performance in the ruck from Matt Naughton, who gave his midfielders first use of the ball all day. Langwarrin were smashing Karingal through the middle, dominating centre clearances and barely giving the Bulls a look in during the first half. Karingal’s frustration was starting to show as Aaron Paxton was sent off the field after a heated scuffle and verbal confrontation with the umpire, much to the delight of the Langwarrin crowd. With the game rapidly getting out of reach, Karingal had to have a big third term to stay in touch, and they certainly did. The Bulls finally showed the quality that got them to second place on the ladder and closed the margin to just two goals at the three-quarter time break. The task of holding on to the lead was also made more difficult by the fact that Langwarrin were reduced to just one man on the interchange bench, with the biggest blow being the loss of playing co-coach Blake McCormack who was stretchered from the field after a huge head knock. Up against the odds in the final term, Langwarrin fought valiantly to hold onto their lead, and ended up taking out a brave victory over Karingal 12.17 (89) to 11.5 (71).

Picture: Andrew Hurst

Matt Stanley was the standout performer for the losing side, as he booted five goals at crucial times to keep his side alive. Blake McCormack, who appeared in good spirits after his injury scare during the game, said he was optimistic about how his side could run out the rest of the year. “It’s fantastic to see where we’ve come from since the start of the season to now. We’ve got good support around the club which makes your job super easy as a coach. We’re super proud of the lads and their challenge for the finals,” he said. “It’s onwards and upwards from here; to take a scalp like this in the back end of the season give us a heap of hope.” Langwarrin were also inspired by the news that they had closed the gap on

fifth place Hastings, who fell to Rye at RJ Rowley Reserve. In difficult conditions, Rye absolutely blitzed Hastings in the first term with a stunning eight goals to one display. Despite being put on the back foot early, Hasting enjoyed a much more fruitful second term, as they took advantage of kicking to the scoring end and cut the lead to three goals at the half time break. The see-sawing contest again fell in Rye’s favour in the third term, with Hastings held to just one behind and the lead blowing out to 39 points. Despite a late fight back, it was a case of too little too late for Hastings, as they succumbed to an impressive Rye outfit 13.9 (87) to 9.17 (71). Adam Kirkwood was the star player on the day, as he kicked four goals in

a best on ground performance for Rye. At Pearcedale Recreation Reserve, Pearcedale put on an impressive performance against Devon Meadows in front of a bumper home crowd. The main drawcard for the day was Pearcedale’s new signing, as former AFL All Australian and North Melbourne forward Drew Petrie made his debut in a one off appearance for the club. The cameo deal is similar to the one that saw Barry Hall play a game in Pearcedale colours last season. Petrie got the crowd involved with an early goal, but largely played second fiddle as his teammates stole the show. Pearcedale held a seventeen point lead going into the final break, but the game was still not dead and buried. With Devon Meadows threatening a fight back, Petrie made a move into the ruck to help stem the flow, and the tactic worked effectively. Pearcedale had to survive a late scare, but ended up running out eight point victors over Devon Meadows 10.8 (68) to 9.6 (60). At Red Hill Recreation Reserve, Red Hill took on Chelsea in a highly anticipated clash of third against fourth. Although it looked on paper to be an even contest, unfortunately the game was fairly one sided right from the outset. Red Hill proved to be the more effective team in the wet, as they frustrated the Seagulls by holding them to just two goals in the first half. Chelsea were helped by a four goal performance from Curtis Bywater, who took his tally for the year to 39, but in the end it counted for little as Red Hill

proved too strong, claiming victory 12.6 (78) to 6.5 (41). It was business as usual for Dromana as they took on Somerville, but they had to survive a big early scare first. Top of the ladder Dromana have hardly put a foot wrong all season, but were shell shocked as Somerville held them goalless in the first term to take a 16 point lead into the quarter time break. Suddenly faced with an unexpected challenge, it didn’t take long for Dromana to correct their course and gain the lead. By half time they held a five point advantage, and that lead only grew as the day went on. Sam Fowler and Ethan Johnstone impressed for Dromana with five and four goals respectively, as their side ran out convincing winners 15.17 (107) to 8.6 (54). The final game for the weekend saw two sides planted to the bottom of the ladder face off, as Crib Point played host to Tyabb. The Yabbies looked the more dominant team in the first quarter, but couldn’t convert that into dominance on the scoreboard as they kicked a disappointing one goal and eight behinds. Tyabb’s inaccuracy looked to be proving their own downfall, as Crib Point stayed in touch and went into half time with a one point lead despite having fewer scoring shots. Tyabb fought hard in the second half, but were almost made to pay for their earlier inaccuracy. It wasn’t easy, but the Yabbies eventually claimed the win over Crib Point 6.11 (47) to 8.16 (64).

Skelly returns to Strikers, Johnston too SOCCER

By Craig MacKenzie JAMIE Skelly has nine games left to save Peninsula Strikers from relegation from State 2 South-East. The revolving door at Centenary Park was spinning once more after Casey Comets shot themselves in the foot by sacking Skelly as head coach last week and inadvertently giving Strikers a lifeline. Within hours of his sacking Skelly had agreed to join Strikers on the proviso that Trevor Johnston remain as president. Johnston had resigned the previous night but the chance to rescue his club’s faltering season proved too good to resist and a back flip was duly performed. Skelly became Strikers’ seventh coach in 12 months following in the footsteps of Craig Lewis, Billy Buchanan, Willie Raines, Andy O’Dell, Jamie Paterson and Lenny Greenan. Skelly had previously coached Strikers in 2012 and was unveiled as new head coach last Tuesday and a player exodus from Comets was evident with Alex van Heerwarden, George Whiteoak, John Prescott and Liam Ryan joining Strikers with more players expected to arrive from Comets Stadium this week. Skelly also lured his Comets assistant and former Strikers player Joe Donaghy to Centenary Park as well as long-time friend Ben Caffrey who had been assistant playing coach at Frankston Pines. Strikers also completed the signing of goalkeeper Dylan Mery and winger Sayed Fatemi from NPL club Kingston City last week but Fatemi dislocated his shoulder at training and was sidelined last weekend. But the Skelly effect wasn’t immediate as Strikers failed to overcome fellow relegation candidate Old Scotch who came away from Centenary Park on Saturday with a precious 1-0 win. The pivotal moment in the contest came in the 11th minute when a slick counter-attack and a stunning finish caught Strikers on the hop. Jonathan Beamish on the left played the ball inside to Sam Shearer whose first-time lay-off sent Kurt Emery clear and he saw that Mery had come too far off his line and struck the ball over his head and under the bar for the winner. The extent of the Achilles injury that forced Whiteoak off at half-time will be determined this week but it forced a reshuffle with big Dave Selan who had struggled to contain Jack Branagan in the first half switching from left back and linking with van Heerwarden in defence. It wasn’t long before van Heerwarden was sent up front and although Strikers pressured Old Scotch they couldn’t find a way past visiting keeper Hugh-James Thomas, who was excellent. Thomas had smothered at the feet of Ryan Thompson in the first half but he should have been beaten in the 57th minute when Ryan blew a great chance to level by striking his shot across the keeper and just wide of the far post when well positioned. Strikers are now nine points from safety at the foot of the table with the league’s worst goal difference but Prescott is available after being suspended for the Old Scotch match and is certain to bolster Strikers’ attacking options. The scene is set for a stirring derby battle on Saturday when Strikers go to Monterey Reserve to face fellow

State 2 side Frankston Pines who lost 4-0 away to title contender Mazenod last weekend. A Lynton Pieterse double had Mazenod in control at half time and a Nick D’Angelo penalty and an Anthony Hammer strike sealed Pines’ fate. In State 1 South-East news Mornington drew 2-2 at home against Beaumaris on Saturday. Max Etheridge opened the scoring with a sweetly struck volley in the 3rd minute and doubled the lead in the 62nd minute after breaking clear onto a Sammy Orritt through ball. But two goals in the last 15 minutes gave the visitors a point, the first a stunning Zach Lemke volley in the 75th minute and the second a closerange strike from Toby Newell 10 minutes later. There were emotional scenes at Mornington training last Thursday night when veteran striker Wayne Gordon announced his departure. “It shocked everyone because they never saw it coming but I just felt that with us playing catch-up again I thought it was better for everyone concerned if I moved on to a new challenge,” Gordon said. “I could have gone to Strikers but after talking to Tony Saunders I decided to join Doveton.” Gordon, 33, was in his sixth season at Dallas Brooks Park and has not ruled out a return. In State 3 South-East news Skye United was thumped 5-0 away to title chasing Boroondara-Carey Eagles and needs to quickly arrest its mini slump if it is to have any chance of resurrecting its season.

The news from State 3 rival Seaford United was far more positive. When Matt Morris-Thomas took over as senior coach at North Seaford Reserve in late May the club had just three points and relegation seemed a formality. But under Morris-Thomas there’s been a revival and it continued with Saturday’s 3-1 home win over Collingwood City which has pushed Seaford onto nine points and given it hope. The visitors had the home side on the back foot thanks to a Pat Makris goal in the 4th minute but Jeremy Schwellinger capitalised on a defensive error in the 30th minute to level. Four minutes before the interval Dylan Waugh put Seaford ahead and good pressure by Waugh paid off in the 80th minute when Callum Richardson was at the back post for a tapin. In State 4 South news Baxter returned to the bottom of the league ladder after losing 2-1 away to Dandenong South on Saturday. An injury time winner from Ali Demiri won it for the home side after Stuart McKenzie had equalised for Baxter in the 68th minute. Meanwhile Somerville shocked title contender Chelsea with a 2-1 home win last weekend which keeps the local club’s State 5 South promotion push firmly on course. Somerville started on the front foot with player-coach Dave Greening twice forcing decent saves out of Chelsea keeper Rhys Davies. Chelsea took the lead against the run of play when a slick move in the 20th minute saw Zachary Luecke

bury his chance from a tight angle. Somerville then went close through Bjorn Kutschera and Joel Wade before Greening’s shot was cleared off the line only to fall to Louis Griffiths who made no mistake from close range in the 35th minute. The contest was settled in the 83rd minute when a fierce inswinging corner from Damien Garcia flew into the top corner despite Davies getting a hand to it. “We had a game plan today which the lads carried out superbly against a team that without question is one of the league’s best sides,” said Greening. “The character and sheer hunger we have in that changing room at the moment is first class.” Aspendale blew a two-goal lead at home to Endeavour Hills Fire in their State 5 South clash and had to settle for a 2-2 draw last weekend. Domenic Paul put the home side ahead in the 12th minute and Dan Barbour increased the lead following a corner in the 72nd minute but goals from Eid Sarwari and substitute Kirobel Begashaw in the last 15 minutes denied the home side from claiming all three points. Aspendale’s best were Paul, Alex Griffiths and Noah Berends. In NPLW news Southern United lost last Saturday’s home clash with Senior NTC 6-0 while the under-19s lost 8-1 to Junior NTC with Briana Dias scoring for Southern. The under-16s match was abandoned at half-time due to adverse weather conditions with Mini NTC leading 2-0.

Gulls keep top spot within reach BASKETBALL

By Brodie Cowburn CHELSEA Gulls have kept the pressure on first place Shepparton Gators with a victory over the Bulleen Boomers in Men’s Division One Basketball on Saturday. Travelling to East Doncaster Secondary College to take on the eight placed outfit, the Gulls went in as strong favourites for the clash. Chelsea started off the contest on the right foot, taking a five point lead into the half time break. Although the Boomers remained in touch with the Gulls, Chelsea quickly killed the game with a dominant third quarter, as they ran out victors (85) to (96). Chelsea captain Corey Standerfer had another brilliant game for the Gulls, as he bucketed a whopping 37 points, shooting at 76 percent accuracy and at 80 percent accuracy from the three point line. Matt Brasser also contributed with an impressive 22 points, which helped the Gulls get over the line. Chelsea currently sit equal on wins with Shepparton, however the Gators have the added advantage of a game in hand. At David Collings Indoor Leisure Centre, Western Port Steelers hosted Warrandyte Venom as they looked to continue their good run of form. Warrandyte came into the contest looking to present a challenge, and proved no easy task for the Steelers in the first stages of the game. The seventh placed Venom got the game underway with an impressive first quarter, as they took an 11 point lead into the first break. Despite their early domination, the Venom were quickly put on the back foot by Western Port, who bounced back and looked comfortable. An incredible third quarter in which the Steelers outscored the Venom 22 to 6 was the final nail in the coffin, as Western Port eventually claimed the win (85) to (61). The win cements the Steelers comfortably in fourth place and sets them up well for the rest of the season. It was an impressive all around team performance

by Western Port, who had four players register point tallies in the double digits. To nobody’s surprise, Dylan Travis was again the star for the Steelers, as he dropped 27 points and won an impressive 13 rebounds. Western Port will face a tough task next weekend as they take on fifth place Warrnambool Seahawks. In Men’s Division Two action, the Southern Peninsula Sharks claimed a vital over Sherbrooke Suns to keep their season alive. With just two wins separating second place from sixth place, any loss from this point on could prove a death blow for the Sharks, but they worked hard to gain a victory over the Suns. The Suns sit just above last place on the table, and the Sharks had little trouble dealing with them. Southern Peninsula went into the half time break with a commanding 21 point lead, and Sherbrooke Suns could do little to stem the flow of points. Sharks superstar Colin Voss had an unusually quiet game, but his teammates made up for it with impressive displays, with Ben James leading from the front with 25 points. Dave Smith also had a big game for the Sharks, as he won 13 rebounds in an impressive display. In Division Two Women’s Basketball, the Mornington Breakers overran the Sherbrooke Suns to stretch their run of wins to three consecutive games and steady their shaky start to the season. Last placed Sherbrooke went into the clash with just one win to their name, but looked competitive in the first quarter. Mornington were shocked to go into the first break one point down, and responded brilliantly with a stunning second quarter in which they outscored the Suns 27-11. Although the Suns continued to fight, the damage had already been done, and the Breakers ran out with a comprehensive (67) to (77) win. Ashleigh Wright again top scored for Mornington with 22 points, while Erin Ludwick was also impressive with 21 points of her own.
