Pot of gold?: Beach boxes are one of the few examples of where the lease of public land can be seen as a way of making money.

Beaches a battleground for fees and charges Keith Platt keith@mpnews.com.au SOME of the Mornington Peninsula most idyllic beaches have become an unlikely battleground between beach box owners and shire councillors. The councillors want to increase annual licence fees for beach boxes, while their owners say the increases are too steep and they should also not be billed for waste charges. The mayor Cr David Gill says the beach box owners should understand their occupation of publicly owned land is a privilege that also gives them a chance to make “hundreds of thousands of dollars”. “Beach boxes are luxury items,” he said. Without any mention of past values,

size and condition of beach boxes, internet-listed sales from October 2018 to March 2019 show big variations between beaches: $342,000 at Mt Martha South; $138,000 Tootgarook; $73,000 and $64,000 Hawker; and $150,000 and $144,000 Mt Eliza. Still on the market last week were beach boxes ranging from a high of $380,000 at Dromana to the lowest, $85,000 at Rosebud. In between those figures are beach boxes at Mills Beach, Mornington, Mt Eliza and McCrae. A showdown between councillors over the licence fees is expected at council’s budget meeting next Tuesday, 11 June. “The peninsula has 164,000 people, 192 kilometres of coastline and just 1350 beach boxes where people are given exclusive use of that space,” Cr

Gill told The News. Last year, beach box owners paid $445 for their annual licence. This year, council’s budget proposes introducing a sliding scale based on size, with the smaller beach boxes paying $700 for a licence, mid-sized boxes $900 and larger ones $1200. “We need income, so we’re looking into every possibility of where to get it,” Cr Gill said. “Most ratepayers don’t have a bathing box, but those that do have exclusive, private use of a public space. “This is a licence that can be sold for hundreds of thousands of dollars, but owners don’t want market value used for calculating their licence fees.” Cr Gill said suggested the shire consider “selling the right to sell a licence on the open market”.

“If we went to an open market we could get more [income] than through annual licence fees,” he said. “These beach boxes are a sought after feature of the peninsula. They’re seen as iconic, but the space they’re built on is public space and we need to have a return.” When the draft budget was released for public comment earlier this year Mornington Peninsula Beach Box Association president Chris Maine suggested the shire could licence two or three “unused sites” each year instead of charging waste fees. He said council had raised $306,000 in waste fees from 1300 beach owners in 2018-19, which could have been avoided by adding $3 to the shire’s 101,000 rateable properties. Mr Maine said 93 per cent of beach

box licence holders paid waste charges already, as they also owned residences in the shire. Councillors did not take his suggestion into account when framing the draft budget and the Supreme Court is now most likely to make a decision on the waste fees issue. Cr Gill said $50,000 was included in last year’s budget to do a survey of asbestos on beaches. “The asbestos is being removed from beach boxes, but where do we find it? On the beach,” he said. “We have competing principles here, do we look after the foreshore for everybody or help with luxury items that can be sold for hundreds of thousands? “I don’t want to get rid of them, just derive a reasonable income from them.”

State’s spring takeover for boat ramps Stephen Taylor steve@mpnews.com.au THE state government says spring will be the time it takes over running boat launching ramps on the Mornington Peninsula. The Better Boating Fund was given $47.2 million in the recent state budget to “work with local councils and land managers to abolish boat ramp parking and launching fees, upgrade boating infrastructure and boost safety across the state”. The Premier Daniel Andrews announced the launching ramp takeover plan on Channel 31’s “Talking Fishing” in the lead-up to last November’s state election. Since then, Future Fish Foundation director David Kramer has slammed the shire as “incompetent at managing the boat ramps”, arguing that the state’s new Boating Minister Jaala Pulford “needs to abolish boat ramp fees and take over management of the boat ramps as soon as possible”. But the mayor Cr David Gill said the real reason behind Mr Kramer’s impatience “seems to be all about the government hoping that Mornington Peninsula Shire ratepayers will continue to pay $1 million annually for boat ramps”. “At the same time, the government is demanding removal of all the normal parking and boat launching fee income that provides for maintenance and safety work that only the council presently undertakes,” Cr Gill said. Cr Gill said Mr Kramer – who he dubbed the “deputy premier” – had “helped create the mess by influencing

It’s a mess: The mayor Cr David Gill at the Fishermans Beach, Mornington boat ramp last week. Picture: Yanni

Mr Andrews’ decision to take over the boat ramps without notice”. “Mr Kramer is now stuck with his rhetoric of ‘useless local government’ and a state government that has no idea how to run boat ramps,” he said. “The government is struggling to put into place an expensive new authority

that has no idea of the complexity of keeping boat ramps safe.” Cr Gill challenged Mr Kramer “to invite me onto his program to advise on dredging and maintenance programs and the ramp rage that will happen due to lack of supervision – especially if a squall develops”.

“In the meantime, the expectation is that the council will continue to use decades of expertise, experience and money to look after boat ramps and beaches on behalf of all seven million yearly visitors from around Victoria, while the state government sits on its hands over funding and safety issues.”

Mr Kramer said the mayor had “quickly forgotten that he chose to rebuild Rye boat ramp during the peak snapper season last November, and he chose not to communicate with adjacent committees of management to get Tyrone or Tootgarook ramps operable”. “He left not a single boat ramp between Safety Beach and Sorrento available for boat launching during the peak fishing season,” Mr Kramer said. “Surely the mayor’s claim to have decades of experience in boat ramp maintenance should not have resulted in the disastrous situation experienced at Rye last year. “Mornington Peninsula Shire has clearly demonstrated why there needs to be a state-wide body managing all boat ramps so a coordinated and consistent approach is achieved. “With the Victorian government budget announced on Monday, Better Boating Victoria now has the appropriate funding and it is full steam ahead with scrapping parking and launching fees.” Meanwhile, the state Opposition spokesperson on fishing and boating Tim Bull said Labor’s promise to “return all boating fees back into better infrastructure is quickly sinking”. He said Labor’s commitment to turn the $27 million collected annually in boating revenue back into better facilities had shrunk to $12.6 million – less than half – in 2020-21. “There’s zero allocation in future years and no details as to how this fund will work. The budget raises more questions than it answers.”

Higher ruling sought for holy hour Keith Platt keith@mpnews.com.au PENINSULA Aero Club is blaming “a small noisy anti-airport lobby group” for making it observe a “holy hour” ban on flying. The 9.30am-10.30am restriction on Sunday take-offs and landings from the Tyabb airfield has been ignored for more than 40 years. The All Saints Church, which the original flying ban was supposed to protect from noise, ended its Sunday services in the 1970s. But an unholy row lit up two weeks ago when the aero club suddenly withdrew its request for Mornington Peninsula Shire Council to delete the restriction from its permit. The council meeting to discuss the permit variation was scheduled to be held at Hastings to accommodate an expected large crowd, but was hurriedly moved back to the shire’s Rosebud headquarters when the main agenda item was deleted. The shire had appeared set to replacing the holy hour ban with another that stopped the airfield from being used between sunset on Saturdays to 9am on Sundays. Aero club president Jack Vevers said the enforcement of the holy hour meant planes were now “forced to begin flying operations earlier on a Sunday morning” while other aircraft may also have to circle overhead until after 10.30am waiting to land”. He said the club had been acting on legal advice and has made a new application to the Victorian Civil Admin-

ALTHOUGH emergency aircraft and RAAF Blackhawks can use Tyabb airfield at any time, the aero club’s latest permit application could have seen its own aircraft prevented from making flights from sunset on saturdays to 9am Sundays. Picture: Gary Sissons

istrative Tribunal (VCAT) “to have the matter heard later in the year”. More than 100 objectors to lifting the restriction were planning to front the council, meeting at the more convenient council chambers in Hastings. The aero club has now accused the shire of neglecting its obligations to make sure development around the airfield does not restrict flying activities. “This is the outcome of a few people finding a technical hole in our permit and using it to harass the aero club and coerce council into committing an act

of bureaucratic stupidity when they have the power to simply grant an application,” Mr Vevers said. “The shire agreed the holy hour was obsolete but, after encouraging the aero club to apply to have this condition removed from its permits, in a complete turnaround responded with an ill-considered and unrelated new condition that will damage airport jobs and have an adverse effect on community amenity. “... The shire is actually obligated to protect the airport to ensure it doesn’t

allow inappropriate development or building of homes near the airport. “The shire has neglected those obligations and is now attempting to apply new and unrelated conditions which will adversely affect the viability of the airport.” The mayor Cr David Gill told The News that shire had supported the aero club to the tune of “hundreds of thousands of dollars” towards a landing area for emergency services aircraft and “we’’l also be contributing to widening the runway for safety reasons”.

“They’ve bltatantly ignored the holy hour ban on Sundays, which was a one day a week break from noise, when there are no real restrictions on flying time.” Meanwhile, the shire is awaiting the result of “a full legal review” of planning permits applying to the airfield. The review must be completed by 30 June and include “the opinion of a fully instructed and suitably qualified and experienced in planning matters Queens Counsel with junior”.

Catholic call for homeless help MEMBERS of Catholic parishes on the Mornington Peninsula have been called on to help come up with a plan to ease the plight of the homeless in their areas. Catholic Social Services Victoria has invited parish representatives to attend a forum: Homelessness – What can Parishes Do? this Saturday (8 June), at the Cardinal Knox Centre in the city. The invitation has been sent to more than 200 parishes in the archdiocese urging delegates to discuss the Australian bishops’ 2018-19 social justice statement A Place to Call Home – Making a Home for Everyone in Our Land. The latest available figures show that between 2011 and 2016 the number of homeless people in Frankston jumped 17 per cent and 10 per cent on the peninsula (“Plight of hidden homeless” The News 3/4/18). The bishops said statistics from the 2016 census showed there are 116,427 people in Australia who are homeless – up from 102,439 in 2011.

“That number includes not only people who are on the streets or sleeping rough, but those who are couch surfing, living in boarding houses or emergency accommodation, or staying in severely overcrowded dwellings,” the bishops said. “The people we see on the streets are just the tip of the iceberg. Indeed, homelessness is a spectrum – there is no clear line that differentiates the homeless from those in housing. “The journey there may be quick or it may be gradual.” The bishops said that in the face of entrenched homelessness in such a prosperous nation, it was time for Australia to reassert the true value of housing as a human right that was fundamental to individual and family wellbeing. “All are our neighbours – all are owed this right,” they said. Delegates to the forum will discuss the compelling case for action on behalf of the homeless put forward by the bishops. Barry Morris

kids, newly arrived refugees and those with disabilities can use the new footpath to get down to the beach without fear,” he said. “Combined with the redeveloped toilet facilities this will provide greater beach access and a better experience for all people regardless of age or ability.” The mayor Cr David Gill said the project, under the shire’s footpath construction strategy, was part of the shire’s commitment to providing safe access paths to key locations on the peninsula.

NEW Sunnyside Road footpath and toilet facilities at Mt Eliza will allow easier beach access with better facilities for visitors from this week. YMCA Camp Manyung, along with Mornington Peninsula Shire Council, TAC and Sport and Recreation Victoria, will open the safe, all-weather path and upgraded toilet, Thursday 30 May. The developments were described by the YMCA as the “result of years of tireless efforts from locals, community groups and support from partnerships, [with] the $370,000 raised for the works … creating a safer, more inclusive beach and camping experience for locals and visitors alike”. The footpath runs from Camp Manyung to beach carpark, meaning school children, community groups, including those with limited mobility or with disabilities staying at Camp Manyung, could only get to the beach using the “busy and dangerous” Sunnyside Road. This was said to “deeply concern” the YMCA and local groups, such as the Muscular Dystrophy Group. Camp manager Jim Boyle said the new road and toilet were a “huge positive for safety, accessibility and inclusion for the community”. “Now, our most vulnerable groups, including

New book traces misery of ‘occupied’ Timor-Leste By Hugh Fraser* THE devastation left behind when Indonesian forces finally withdrew from their 24-year occupation of Timor Leste was graphically described by Professor Clinton Fernandes at Mornington Peninsula Shire’s signature Library Week event: “Knowledge Integrity and Truth”. Prof Fernandes, from the University of New South Wales and the Australian Defence Academy, was at the shire’s Mornington offices to launch his new book on Australian foreign policy, “Island off the coast of Asia”. He and lawyer Bernard Collaery spoke about the agony and deprivations faced by the citizens of Timor-Leste both during and after their fight for freedom. Mr Collaery, a former member of the ACT Assembly and ACT Attorney General, spoke of Australia’s counter terrorism laws and the disturbing impact they have on all Australian citizens’ legal and human rights. Timor-Leste gained independence on 20 May 2002. In effect, that day should be seen as on of the restoration of independence because it was initially achieved from Portugal on 28 November 1975 – nine days later Indonesia invaded and occupied East Timor for the next 24 years. Prof Fernandes used statistics to graphically illustrate what happened in the aftermath of the 1999 independence referendum as the Indonesians withdrew. More than 2000 East Timorese were killed, 300,000 were internally displaced and 200,000 displaced to West Timor; 85 per cent of telecommunications, 33 per cent of Dili electricity and 50-90 per cent of regional districts’ electric-

ity infrastructure together with 95 per cent of schools, 70 per cent of dwellings and 75 per cent of health care facilities were all destroyed by the withdrawing Indonesians. In what was a subsistence economy of Propinsi Timur Timor – one of the poorest provinces of Indonesia – some 34-63 per cent of all horses, buffalos, pigs, cattle and goats, 40 per cent of agricultural output – were all destroyed in the withdrawal - leaving this fledgling nation’s population with a life expectancy of 49.5 years and ranked 158 out of 177 countries on the Human Development Index 2002. Gross regional product fell by 25-30 per cent. Critical food shortages followed between October 2004 and February 2005. This was at a time when, according to information that became public some years later, the Australian Secret Intelligence Service (ASIS) is alleged to have used the cover of an Australian aid project to install listening devices in Timor-Leste ministerial offices. The espionage operation provided Australia with secret access to Timor-Leste’s internal deliberations and negotiating positions. Copies of Professor Fernandes book “Island off the coast of Asia” (Monash University Publishing) – reviewed by Geoffrey Blainey as a “book, on a vital Australian theme, is stimulating and debate arousing” – are available at http:// www.publishing.monash.edu/books/ioca9781925523799.html *Nepean Ward councillor Hugh Fraser is the shire’s delegate to Mornington Peninsula Friends of Lospalos Timor-Leste.

A LAWYER previously employed by the Peninsula Community Legal Centre has been awarded for her efforts as a volunteer. Claire Williams was presented with the Kath Neilsen Award for outstanding contribution to the centre at the recent annual volunteer and supporters appreciation dinner. The award is named after Kath Neilsen, a founder and long-term supporter of the centre. It acknowledges a volunteer who has demonstrated a superior understanding of the centre’s values and the principals of social justice; along with a reliable and respectful approach to interactions with our clients. Ms Williams was employed by the centre for six years and has since remained a volunteer. “I found my feet as a lawyer while working at PCLC. The great staff, plus a sense of belonging to a team that are working to end family violence, made the job very rewarding,” Ms Williams said. To support herself through university Ms Williams worked with people with a disability as a part-time job and gained an understanding of the difficulties faced by those with special needs. After leaving PCLC, she worked in a policy role with government and then started her own practice in Frankston Justice Crew Legal Services. Her practice focusses on helping clients have “a low-stress journey through the legal system”. Ms Williams says she is passionate about helping guide people with mental, physical and intellectual disabilities through the legal process. “This can involve many hours acting as a go-between; connecting clients with support services such as psychologists

and family violence workers.” Ms Williams is one of 120 volunteers who enable the legal centre to run free legal advice sessions at five locations in Melbourne’s the south east. “After 40 years service to the community, the work we do ensuring access to justice for vulnerable

communities, is as important today as ever,” the centre’s CEO Jackie Galloway said. “We are increasingly facing an environment where people’s human rights are being eroded and there are more and more vulnerable members of our community slipping through the safety net.”

Gathering time to publish rhyme MANY words have been spoken in McCrae on Sunday nights between March and November over the past three years. The words, strung together in rhyme to create a rhythm, belong to a group of people collectively known as a lamb, obscurity or rhyme. They are, of course poets. And these poets who meet so regularly at Poets’ Corner at the BBC Cafe, have now published their first anthology: “Gatherings By The Lighthouse”. The masters of verse were first brought to Poets’ Corner by its convener Heather ForbesMcKeon who, at the end of 2018, invited poets who had presented at least one poem during Poets’ Corner’s first two years to submit up to three original poems for consideration to be included in the anthology.

The committee comprised Julia Kaylock (editor), Jai Thoolen (publisher and formatter), Rowan McKeon, Tom McCullough and ForbesMcKeon. Artist Carmel Hourigan contributed illustrations. Sally Baillieu, presenter of Arts About on radio RPP FM, was the guest speaker at the launch of the first anthology to result from Poets’ Corner. Peninsula Writers Club organiser Andrea Rowe, in the foreword to the anthology wrote: “Gatherings By The Lighthouse is a collection of Mornington Peninsula voices, truth tellers and word weavers who puzzle, ponder and proclaim in prose what our hearts and souls often struggle to articulate.” Forbes-McKeon says that the anthology showcases the proficiency of the poets who attend Poets Corner while demonstrating what a local

community of like-minded artists can achieve together. Copies of Gatherings By The Lighthouse at $15.95 are available at the Bookbarn Rosebud, Style Pirate Dromana, Arthurs Seat Eagle, or online directly from local publisher Picklepoetry (Jai Thoolen). Poets’ Corner gatherings are held on the last Sunday of the month from March to November at the BBC Cafe, 665-667 Point Nepean Road, McCrae. There are two open mic sets and a featured poet. Doors open 5.30pm. The event is held 6pm–8pm and costs $25 a person for a twocourse meal or a $5 cover charge; a $5 entry fee which goes to Poets’ Corner to pay the featured poet. Bookings call 5982 0295 or Facebook: Poets Corner. Keith Platt

Police patrol

With Stephen Taylor

Speed blamed for double fatality unregistered trailer ($500), generator ($1000), Spitwater pressure cleaner ($7000) and Unimig welder ($1800) in the overnight raid, Friday 24 May. Detective Senior Sergeant Miro Majstorovic, of Somerville CIU, said the offenders reportedly spent some time inside the sheds before driving away.

Drive-through entry

Flowers and tributes left at the scene of the double fatalility in Nepean Highway, Mt Eliza.

SPEED is being blamed for a tragic collision at Mt Eliza last week in which a young couple ploughed into an approaching car – killing themselves and seriously injuring the other driver. Apprentice hairdresser Kalinda Nheu, 18, of Pearcedale, and Pauly Khaled, 22, of Heatherton, were driving north in a yellow ute when it ran across the median strip into the south-bound lanes and collided with an oncoming vehicle on Nepean Highway, near Mt Eliza Way, 11.15pm, Monday 27 May. The other driver was taken to hospital with non-life threatening injuries. The pair were said to be car enthusiasts with car pictures and messages adorning their Facebook pages. On Mr Khaled’s Facebook page was a message: “Friends, countrymen, fellow travellers – it’s time to act! After years of travelling in the slow lane, we need a higher speed limit. Welcome then to our campaign: a crusade designed to increase the limit to 130km/h on our best highways, thus leading to less fatiguerelated crashes on our roads.” Friends and family on Tuesday night held a car meet to honour the pair. Those attending had

been urged not to hoon or speed after a tribute video on social media appeared to show the ute the pair were in doing a burnout hours before they died. Somerville Highway Patrol’s Senior Constable Greg Wolfe said the memorial car meet was well managed and had not caused any issues. He appealed to drivers to “concentrate and drive according to the weather conditions and within the speed limit”. Witnesses or anyone with dash-cam footage of the crash should contact Crime Stoppers 1800 333 000 or submit a confidential crime report at crimestoppersvic.com.au By Wednesday 137 lives had been lost on the state’s roads – up from 88 last year.

A THIEF crawled through the drive-through window to rob the KFC outlet at Mornington, 1-2am, Saturday 25 May. The haul from the Nepean Highway business included a Dell laptop valued at $1000. Detectives described the offender as Caucasian, early 20s, dark messy hair wearing jeans and runners.

fied from driving due to a previous drug-driving offence, had his car impounded for 30 days at a cost of $1042. He will receive a summons to attend court at a later date. Sergeant Matthew Nott, of the state highway patrol said: “We make no apologies for taking people’s cars when they make the conscious decision to drive when they don’t have a licence. “This is not a game, and people need to learn that no licence means no driving: it’s as simple as that.”

Leaving the scene A MAN allegedly reversed his ute into a parked car outside a hardware store on Frankston-Flinders Road, Hastings, last week. Police say the man drove off without making any attempt to contact the owner of the damaged vehicle, 9.55am, Saturday 25 May. Anyone with information is urged to contact Hastings police station 5970 7800 or Crime Stoppers 1800 333 000.

Damages bill A BURGLAR stole Holland blinds valued at $400 but caused “substantial” damages to recently-completed units in McDonald Road, Mornington, 18-22 May. Detective Senior Sergeant Miro Majstorovic, of Somerville CIU, said a tap was turned on allowing so much water to escape that the ceiling collapsed. Anyone with information is urged to call Crime Stoppers 1800 333 000.

Water plan gets $300,000 for business case Stephen Taylor steve@mpnews.com.au PLANS to create a Hinterland Environmental Water Scheme (HEWS) to drought and bushfire-proof the Mornington Peninsula are a step closer with a pledge by returned Flinders MP Greg Hunt to commit $300,000 to the design of a business case. The scheme proposes re-processing and using the average of 350 million litres of Class A water discharged each day from the South Eastern Outfall pipeline near Gunnamatta. Original proponent of the scheme, Russell Joseph, said the water had been treated as “fit for purpose” for basic agricultural irrigation but was “largely a wasted resource”. He said a 2017-18 Melbourne Water annual report had shown that less than five per cent of the water was being re-used by third parties – such as farmers and firefighters. Mr Joseph said the water scheme proposed re-processing the water to “an even higher standard to make it ethically and environmentally safe to be used on the high value soils of our hinterland and the lighter soils beyond”. On the back of this federal commitment, the founders and co-authors of the HEWS have created a community led, not-for-profit incorporated association to manage the business case and feasibility study which is expected to lead to the eventual rollout of the pipeline infrastructure. “The commitment from the federal government has given great impetus

to the project and it is now time to incorporate the scheme as a genuine community-led-and-owned project,” Mr Joseph said. “This scheme will bring a climate secure water supply to the peninsula – something no other irrigation region in Victoria has.” Mr Joseph said expected a draft report on the scope of the HEWS business case could be released “in coming weeks”. “The peninsula is home to some of the finest agricultural land in Victoria and, for the security of our green wedge, it simply makes sense to apply the right water, the right way, in the right locations to grow the best possible crops,” he said. Mr Joseph urged the state government and Mornington Peninsula Shire to “join us in financially supporting this important and bi-partisan project”. He said questions about salinity, regulation, soil degradation, crop type, financial cost and returns to farmers had “all been addressed in the initial reports, but these need to be independently assessed and proven in the feasibility process”. Co-author of the HEWS report Steve Marshall said: “It is important the community have confidence over how this project develops and is potentially rolled out. “We have decided the best way to do this is to incorporate the HEWS and to give our community full transparency with a level of ownership and control over the outcomes.” Mr Hunt said the money would as-

sist locals in assessing the feasibility of the full project. “This project has the potential to not only provide Class A treated water for our local farmers, but increased firefighting capacities in the Mornington hinterland during summer,” he said.

He said the project needed a bipartisan approach across all levels of government. “I hope and call on both the shire and state governments to match this funding in line with their previous statements,” Mr Hunt said.

Inaugural committee members of HEWS Inc are Russell Joseph, Steven Marshall, Alana Jones, Allister Smith and Christine Haydon. Associate memberships are available. Details: Call Russell Joseph on 0414 398 586.

Turning waste into hands for children MAKING prosthetic limbs and hands from plastic bottle tops sounds like an amazing project and is one which Eastbourne Primary School is enthusiastically supporting. Students have set themselves a goal of collecting one million tops which Seaford not-for-profit group Envision will use to make artificial limbs for children in developing countries. Principal Stephen Wilkinson is asking the community to get on board. “It’s easy to collect the plastic bottle caps with the numbers two or four inside,” he said. The impetus for the project came from Saun Teer at Envision. He visited the school to explain how the plastic tops are used to make 3D printed hands for children – instead of going to landfill. “The major difference is our project is using recycled plastic from bottle tops, thus also benefiting the environment,” Mr Teer said. “Bottle caps are fully recyclable yet, unfortunately, as reported on the ABC’s ‘War on Waste’, they aren’t being

recycled. They get sent to landfill.” Mr Teer said the often-overlooked waste product was almost entirely made from HDPE 2 – or high density poly-ethylene. “After considerable experimentation we have successfully taken this plastic and extruded it to create functioning filament for 3D printers,” he said. “Once we have the filament we 3D print all the components that make up the hand.” The Eastbourne students have joined Seawinds Community Hub in collecting the tops and are calling on the community to join in and save hundreds, or even thousands, being dumped into landfill. Mr Teer said donations would help buy equipment to continue the process. “Our mission is to create 100 prosthetic hands from bottle caps by using 3D printers, and then to donate the finished hands to children in need.” Top this: Eastbourne Primary School students Alex, Millie and Reagan with Saun Teer, of Envision.

Scouting for renovation help PROGRAMS run by Rosebud Sea Scouts are aimed at providing opportunities for five to 18 year olds to build “resilience, leadership and independence”. “This is done through our weekly programs at the scout hall as well as access to statewide and even national activities and camps,” the group’s parents’ committee president Leanne Male said. The program for all scouting sections includes year-round water activities and camping. Twelve scouts (aged 11-14) attended a 12-day jamboree in South Australia earlier this year. “This event is held every three years and each scout has one chance to attend this life changing event,” Ms Male said. Next year, Kangaree will be a “weekend of fun and adventure” for joeys five to eight year olds) and Cuboree a “week of adventure” cub scouts (eight-11).

Collector’s court threat over permits Stephen Taylor steve@mpnews.com.au A BONEO car collector is prepared to go to the Supreme Court after being told by planning authorities that he cannot keep more than 10 cars at his property. Victor Hycenko, of Old Cape Schanck Road, has accused Mornington Peninsula Shire of waging a “personal vendetta” against him and using delaying tactics to prevent him erecting a large shed to store the cars, as well as a horse arena, bed and breakfast accommodation, a dam, landscaping and an olive grove. The cars are now scattered around his 11.8 hectare property or in shipping containers which he says he trucked in while awaiting approval for the shed. Mr Hycenko has been ordered by the shire to remove the containers. “Everything I try to do they knock me back,” said Mr Hycenko, claiming that the shire had spent an estimated “$100,000 of ratepayers’ money and I have spent $80,000 just trying to get a shed built”. The handyman carpenter first sought shire planning approval to bring in shipping containers in March 2017, even though he claims he was told this was not required under the property’s zoning. The council denies this. Twice since he has applied unsuccessfully for approval for the shipping containers. “They have refused to grant approval at every juncture,” he said. The Victorian Civil Administrative

‘Vendetta against me’: Hobbyist Victor Hycenko says the shire “keeps changing the goal posts” on planning rules. Picture: Yanni

Tribunal is still to hear Mr Hycenko’s appeal made last December against the council’s refusal to allow the shipping containers. At that time he lodged a new application for a shed with the council before the enforcement order was made in April. That application addressed the reasons the council knocked him back in 2017, including that “the size and scale of the building and works would have an unacceptable impact on the landscape”. Mr Hycenko says he has “addressed matters raised by the council in the first VCAT hearing with detailed and extensive management plans, including the fu-

ture development of the farm to support the shed”. “They keep changing the goal posts,” he said. “Everyone else around here can get approvals for sheds, dams and raised garden beds – yet this property can’t.” He says he will go to a “higher court” if necessary – possibly the Supreme Court – having “significantly altered [my] application, reduced the shed size, planned it carefully with expert advice and addressed the matters which were of concern to the council in the first application, particularly”. Mr Hycenko said the shipping containers were needed to temporarily store mo-

tor vehicles and farm machinery and his tools of trade “until such time as a shed is constructed”. He said the council had since acknowledged there are existing use rights on the land for agriculture and other uses “some of which were unclear at the time of the original application”. “I don’t understand the shire’s refusal when there are plenty of properties on the peninsula with exactly what I am asking for,” he said. “Why change the rules, and why for some and not for others? Nothing I am asking for is prohibited; in the worst case it requires a permit – which is constantly

being refused.” The shire’s planning and building director David Bergin said the council was assessing Mr Hycenko’s resubmitted planning application “which followed a VCAT refusal for a similar proposal previously refused by council in March 2017”. “In that case, the tribunal concurred with council’s view that, in combination, the visual impact of these large buildings and the dam, along with earth mounds that do not form part of the current proposal, would result in an aspect that would be quite out of character with the existing rural and rural-residential landscape of the area,” he said. “The current planning application proposes structures of a similar size to those previously refused, but re-sited and re-oriented, supplemented with a farm management plan and seeking approval to use the land for agricultural purposes.” Mr Bergin said Mr Hycenko’s retrospective planning permit application for the shipping containers, previously refused by the council, would be heard by VCAT on 17 June. “It is unclear where the alleged breaches of the Planning and Environment Act have occurred. The current application remains within the statutory timeframe for a decision to be made.”

ON THE COVER

ENVIABLE TRANQUILLITY WITH VIEWS TO LAST A LIFETIME AN awe-inspiring view that stretches across Port Phillip Bay to the You Yangs and up to the dazzling Melbourne skyline can be yours to enjoy every day from this magnificent residence, serenely set on an 863 square metre block adorned with lush lawns and landscaped gardens. Through three spectacular levels, this home shows a dedication to the utmost in designer style and function. From the lower level there is a double garage with internal staircase up to an alfresco patio which overlooks the breathtaking outdoor entertaining zone complete with sparkling in-ground pool and spa, a Balinese hut and swaying palm trees. Also on this lower level is the indulgent master suite which includes the enormous bedroom with gas log fire, a beautiful ensuite has a walk-in shower and there is an incredible showpiece laundry. Continue upstairs and you emerge into the vibrant hub of the home where the astounding family zone is awash with space and light. The crisp white kitchen greets you with handsome stone counter tops to a large island bench and a superb butler’s pantry accommodates two stainless-steel ovens and a dual sink. You can’t help but relax when your feet touch the cushy plush carpet in the large lounge which opens out to a second deck where you can unwind and enjoy the amazing sunsets with a beverage from the stone-topped wet bar. An outdoor kitchen comprises a gas plumbed barbecue and sink and there are shade sails to a meals area that will comfortably seat ten. To the east wing are three more bedrooms – a guest bedroom has ensuite and walk-in robe – and there is the main bathroom. One more level awaits with a separate study or potentially a fifth bedroom complete with powder room right at the very top of this astounding property that continually offers you the extraordinary.n

Cat trapping can lead to deaths of pets I was really disturbed to read about Mornington Peninsula Shire’s cat trapping program (“Traps for straying cats” The News 28/5/19). Leaving a cat in a trap for up to 24 hours is cruel, callous and inhumane. Who will monitor these traps, and will the cat be protected from animal abusers and extreme weather conditions, such as the heat and the cold? How can the council be certain that members of the public will abide by the regulations relating to care of cats trapped in cages? I believe this will lead to the deaths of many pets, but maybe that is what the shire is hoping for, given it will save money in euthanasia costs. Many of the impounded pets (dogs and cats) come from financially disadvantaged areas, such as Rosebud and Hastings. Sanctioning pet owners with excessive fines and removing them from their homes should be the last resort. Pets provide health and social benefits, and are particularly important to the lonely, vulnerable and the elderly. Surely providing education, subsidised desexing and microchipping of dogs and cats would be a far more beneficial and humane option? Frankston and Dandenong councils have subsidised desexing programs for financially disadvantaged members of the public, but Mornington Peninsula has nothing. This program seems to be set up deliberately to disadvantage any trapped pet taken to the pound, where it will be terrified and stressed after being left in a cage for hours. The council can then label it as “feral” and destroy it immediately. The shire is extremely concerned about wildlife yet allows developers to remove all trees and shrubs when building new townhouses. Oh, but that is okay, as it is a great revenue raiser for the shire, with wildlife not being important where money is concerned. Rosy Fischer, Mornington

‘Clean’ hydrogen That “Australia could be leading producer of hydrogen fuel” (Letters, The News 22/5/19) is not disputed. The Hydrogen Strategy Group, a government/industry consortium recently identified a major economic role for hydrogen in Australia through exports and the creation of new industries and jobs while supporting the transition to low emissions energy production. Australia’s chief scientist, Dr Alan Finkel, recognises “The long-held dream of meeting energy needs with clean hydrogen is becoming a reality”. What is disputed are the statements in the letter that attempt to sanitise production of hydrogen using Latrobe Valley brown coal, claiming that coal gasification with carbon capture and storage (CCS) is a “cost effective and safe method to produce clean hydrogen” and that CO2 produced by the project “will be injected deep underground in Bass Strait”. Coal gasification involves the burning of coal

with oxygen and steam, forming a synthetic gas in which the hydrogen component is derived from water. Coal cannot be converted to hydrogen. Coal gasification is not “clean”, producing CO2 and methane, industrial wastes that are greenhouse gases. The only means of producing truly clean hydrogen in quantity is by electrolysis of water utilising renewable energy sources. CCS in Australia is still under development with concerns regarding containment of the waste products. CCS projects in Australia have been cancelled due to unsatisfactory geological profiles. The pilot program proposed by Kawasaki does not include CCS. The economic viability of CCS is questionable. Costs of hydrogen production through electrolysis are predicted to be similar to coal gasification and CCS by 2025. Why are we supporting hydrogen production using polluting technology that belongs in a bygone era, justifying the process through questionable CCS? A forward-looking Australia must embrace a future based on truly clean hydrogen generation via electrolysis of water utilising renewable nonpolluting energy sources. John Humphrey, Bittern

No political bias Rosemary Henderson claims of Liberal bias by The News are very distorted and she needs to get her facts correct before making such false claims (“Electorate coverage had ‘a very Liberal bias’” Letters 29/5/19). There were no pathetic attempts of journalism and it would seem that she doesn’t read The News regularly because, had she done so, the three weeks prior to the election the front pages were paid advertisements by the Victorian Trades Hall Council, the Liberal Party and the independent Julia Banks, in which they featured their views. As to her claim that the Liberal government has broken its first election policy on tax cuts is absolutely dishonest. Parliamentary procedure requires the tax cuts policy to be introduced into the House of Representatives and legislated accordingly. As a teacher, she also has a responsibility to be authentic to her students, and particularly about her claim of journalistic integrity. John F O’Hanlon, Capel Sound

Social values missing The poor Labor Party. Its philosophy has strayed all over the place, adopting every other party’s policies, every trend, anything popular; green, pink, red, blue, in order to be all things to all voters. For me, some of these policies are objectionable, even insulting. There are an awful lot of voters, perhaps “the silent majority” who, I think, are of like mind. We never say much about it, or argue, but we have long standing family, social and economic values.

I would like to vote for the democratic socialist party, which Labor used to be. Come back, Ben Chifley. I don’t want my country, industry and jobs, to be completely destroyed by some grandiose European committee in Paris telling us what we must do to our economy. It wasn’t just me and my ilk who couldn’t vote for Labor. The great unwashed, all devoid of analytical skills, were given their political opinions and voting instructions, mostly by a daily news (and opinion) paper, which I personally shun, because they can’t think. Brian A Mitchelson, Mornington

Election relief Now that [Liberal Flinders MP] Greg Hunt’s rigorous, invasive, full-on election campaign has reached its jubilant conclusion he can finally sit back and put his feet up. It’s three long years until the next one. Fred Wild, Rye

Associated protocols Good grief, I’ll have two cases of whatever Michael G Free is on (“Vote for free” Letters 27/5/19). He seems to be of the ill informed opinion that anyone can think up a title for an association and away you go. I can’t speak for Dr Mark Fancett but, as for the Mornington Peninsula Ratepayers and Residents Association (MPRRA), we have been in operation since 1997, when it was formed by Arthur Manche because he was concerned about rubbish depots closing. He convened a meeting at the Rosebud Memorial Hall and a committee was formed with him elected president by the concerned residents, not the entire electorate as Michael has intimated. Down the years, we have had several elected presidents and committees. I am currently filling the position of president. If Michael G Free is not conversant on how associations are formed, may I suggest he gets some advice before he makes a statement on the matter and gets caught short much like he does with climate change. Perhaps a good name for his new group could be the “going off half cocked association”. John Cain, president MPRRA, McCrae

Elected president A man and a dog is the factious answer to Michael G Free (“Vote for free” Letters 27/5/19). The Mornington Peninsula Ratepayers and Residents Association’s current president John Cain is elected at the AGM by paid up members, which sometimes runs to 25 attending. It is a pity that Mr Free confuses community activists such as John Cain as being political, and he certainly appears confused over Dr Mark Fancett’s status. The genuinely socially conscientious members of the MPRRA attempt to assist and improve local situations at the grass roots level of planning permissions, rate setting, shire service delivery, budget issues and noisy neighbours. Hardly political, but very practical and necessary when we have such generally poor councillor support. Local knowledge and a sympathetic ear is a start, and the MPRRA does its best given small membership and minimal financial status. Ian Morrison, convenor Mt Eliza Community Alliance

Comfort SALE

‘Massive new hole’ Dr Mark Fancett is president of the Peninsula Preservation Group (PPG), a community group formed in 2013 to oppose the application of Hillview Quarries to turn the Dromana/Arthurs Seat escarpment into the centralised landfill site of the Mornington Peninsula. The way PPG was successful in opposing the tip - the EPA agreed it was a rubbish idea. Who voted Dr Fancett in? Me and other likeminded, community focused individuals, nothing to do with the federal election. Hillview Quarries wants to dig a massive new hole in Dromana on the hill next to the Arthurs Seat state park and PPG members don’t like it. We know better and can do better. It is an rare ecological resource and should be preserved, so Dr Fancett, as president of this local community group, is informing the wider community as to what Hillview is up to, which is applying for a permit from the state government to dig a massive new quarry on the hill in Dromana.

Stroke lessons On behalf of the Stroke Foundation, I welcome the Victorian government’s $5.5 billion budget boost to health services, in particular its focus on emergency response and improving health infrastructure where it is needed most. It is encouraging to see the government furthering its commitment to delivering a hospital system Victorians can rely on close to home. The challenge now is to ensure all Victorians know to dial triple zero (000) at the first sign of stroke to benefit from our emergency response system and hospitals. Stroke attacks the brain, the human control centre, and it can change lives in an instant. Around 1.9 million brain cells are destroyed each minute, but this damage can be stopped with the right treatment at the right time. Sadly, not enough Victorians are accessing these treatments because they are not aware of the signs of stroke and the need to urgently call an ambulance. Currently, just 36 per cent of Victorian stroke patients arrive at hospital within the 4.5-hour time window to benefit from time-critical blood clot dissolving treatments. It’s estimated there will be more than 14,000 strokes in Victoria this year and the incidence continues to rise as our population grows and ages and lifestyles become more sedentary. I urge the government to build on this year’s budget investment in health with a targeted F.A.S.T community education campaign to ensure people seek treatment for stroke quickly to improve outcomes. I also urge the community to take the time to learn F.A.S.T signs of stroke. The F.A.S.T test involves asking these questions: Face – Check their face. Has their mouth drooped? Arms – Can they lift both arms? Speech – Is their speech slurred? Do they understand you? Time – Time is critical. If you see any of these signs, call 000 straight away. Jodi Briggs, Victoria state manager, Stroke Foundation

WHAT’S NEW...

Did you Conquer The Course? MANY can now say they have conquered the course, after the holding of the inaugural Conquer The Course charity walk and fun run at Mornington Racecourse on Sunday 26 May 2019. Peninsula Home Hospice held the event to raise the profile of their not for profit organisation who provide in home palliative care and to raise much needed funds. The organisers of the event were extremely happy with its success, with a total 226 entrants, including ages ranging from 4 to 82. Peninsula Home Hospice CEO Rachel Bovenizer said ‘What a fantastic day, it was wonderful to see so many people of different ages enjoying the experience of Conquering the Course. Palliative care is about living well, we wanted to focus on bringing the community together and encourage a healthy lifestyle, and we achieved that. It is heart-warming to have so many people showing their support of Peninsula Home Hospice by participating in our inaugural fun run. Thank you to all’. Local businesses and community groups were involved in the day, including market stalls provided by CWA Mornington, Heart Affairs, and Orna’s Choc Rocks, and a sausage sizzle run by the Mornington Lions Club. Spudalicious’ baked potatoes and Brew up Bar’s hot beverages were also very popular. Throughout the day kids were kept entertained with plenty of fun free kids activities provided by Amazing Toys, including face painting, giant games, plaster painting, and sand art. DJ PeterD kept the crowd pumped up

with great music and when it was time to get the entrants ready, Kristy from Optima Health and Fitness ran a prerace warmup. Both courses were timed by the team at Tomato Timing. The 5km course departed first, heading through the stables

and along the track to the main racetrack entrance, and then onto the main racetrack to complete two laps before returning to the start. Shortly after, the 2km entrants headed off on the same track, turning around just before the entrance to the racetrack.

As they crossed the finish line all entrants received a finisher’s medal and they also enjoyed an apple donated by Torello Farm. Some chose to have their medal engraved onsite, to further commemorate their participation. After the event an official welcome

was given on stage by Cr Rosie Clark, followed by presentations by The Hon Greg Hunt, Cr Rosie Clark, Peninsula Home Hospice Board of Directors President, Helen Fairlie, and Luke Carson from Design By Bird. Peninsula Home Hospice’s CEO Rachel Bovenizer congratulated all entrants, volunteers, and organisers, and spot prizes of The Sports Injury Clinic vouchers were handed out to many lucky winners. Place getters for both courses received a medal and The Sports Injury Clinic voucher. The overall female winner of the 5km course was Jessica Neylon in a time of 22:02, and the male winner was William Cross in 20:23. The 2km course was won by Glenn Berry in 7:52 and Brooke Rhodes completed the course in 8:38. Full results and times can be found at www.conquerthecourse.com.au. Many volunteers helped out on the day with setting up, car parking, registrations, bib collection, course marshals, water stations, and providing information, and their support was key to the success of the day. The generous support of the Conquer The Course sponsors was paramount to bring this fantastic new event to the community, which is planned to become an annual event. The sponsors include Media Partner – Mornington Peninsula News Group, and Event Partners – SMART Business Solutions, Design By Bird, The Sports Injury Clinic, Bank of Melbourne Foundation, and Functioning Together.

100 YEARS AGO THIS WEEK...

Lord Jellicoe’s visit creates excitement Compiled by Cameron McCullough THE visit to our district of the Empire’s greatest naval hero Admiral Viscount Jellicoe naturally excited great interest locally and residents assembled in great numbers to bid him welcome. He arrived by special train at 10.50am on Wednesday last and was accompanied by members of his personal staff, including Commodore F. C. Dreyer and Lieutenant Colonel Robertson, of the Royal Air Force; the Acting Prime Minister (Mr Watt), the Acting Navy Minister (Mr Poynton), the Minister of Works and Railways (Mr Groom), Mr. J. R. Seattle, Director of Naval Works; Lieutenant–Colonel Goebel, in charge of the naval side of the Australian air force scheme, and Major Berriman, also of the Australian Air Forces. Lord Jellicoe was met at the Railway Station by the school children of Crib Point, Bittern, and Cowes, and the Boy Scouts of Cowes greeted him with the Scouts welcome. The children, who were lined up to form a Guard of Honor, flew their colors of red, White and blue. The Admiral received the welcome with a salute and his pleasant and kindly expression at once won the hearts of all. Councillor McFee, of Cowes welcomed Lord Jellicoe on behalf of the residents of Western Port. He referred to the many who had paid the supreme sacrifice in defence of Empire and spoke with pride and gratitude of the sailors and soldiers who had returned or were returning. In reply the Admiral thanked Cr McFee and the people for the hearty welcome accorded him. He remarked

that Crib Point reminded him of the Isle of Wight. He frequently visited Ventnor and Rhyll near which places his family was at present residing. He hoped to have the opportunity of visiting the places of the same name in Australia. He deeply sympathised with those who had lost their loved ones during the war. The district had every reason to be proud of the service rendered by those men and to him it was a source of gratification to know that some of the men from Philip Island had actually served with him in the Grand Fleet. The Admiral shook hands and spoke kindly words to Mrs Justie and Mr Mathews, who had lost sons at the war. All present then loudly cheered His Lordship and someone struck up “For he’s a jolly good fellow” in which everyone lustily joined. The party then boarded the train which steamed off to the Naval Base to the strains of the bag pipes. After lunch the visitors inspected the Base buildings and in the afternoon Lord Jellicoe proceeded down the channel in a launch as far as Port Western. He stated subsequently that the general surroundings resembled in many respects the waters off Spit Head. At 3.20pm the party left on the return journey to Melbourne, bearing away one of whom we are all very proud. The Children’s Part It was a pleasant sight to see all the school children assembled at Crib Point to do honor to Lord Jellicoe and the manner in which they carried out the duties allotted to them reflects the highest credit on the school masters of Crib Point, Bittern and Phillip Island schools.

The children from Phillip Island, who it is stated were carried free on the steamer by the generous order of Mr Sambell, marched from Stony Point headed by the Scouts patrol to the enlivening strains of the bag pipes, which warmed the hearts of the many good old Scots’ present. The Bittern children arrived on lorries bedecked with flags and the Empire colors. The Crib Point children headed by Master Arthur Emmine carrying the good old flag, marched to the place of meeting with much pride and determination to do their duty. All acquitted themselves admirably. *** NEXT Friday evening, in the Frankston Hall, a social evening will be given to a number of our boys recently returned from active service. *** THE Returned Soldiers of Frankston are holding a euchre party and dance on Wednesday, 11th June, when a good night’s enjoyment is assured. *** THE article which appeared in a recent issue of the “Standard,” dealing with seasonable gardening from the amateur standpoint has caused such favorable comment that we have arranged with the writer to supply a series of articles on the same subject and these will appear monthly. *** FRANKSTON School Board – The first meeting of the newly elected School Board was held at Frankston on Tuesday evening last to elect office bearers. Cr W. J. Oates was appointed president, Mr Mark Brody correspondent,

and Mr Nicholson treasurer. The Board will meet monthly in future. *** FRANKSTON Honor Avenue – Portion of the Repatriation vote allotted to the North Riding is being expended in making concrete guards to the Honor Avenue in Frankston. The returned soldiers employed are making good progress with the work which when completed will be both useful and ornamental. *** SAILORS Entertained —The first of a series of chars-a-banc runs organised by the Y.M.C.A. for sailors of New Zealand, was held on Wednesday, when 200 men visited Frankston, and were entertained at afternoon tea by the Wattle Club. On arrival the guests were received by Mrs Dalman, vice-pres., (Miss Gregory being absent through illness). Afternoon tea was served immediately, the tables being decorated with blue and white, the colors of the navy. Music was rendered by Miss Jessie Ford’s band while songs by Mrs Mann and a recitation by Miss McLean were well received. Mr Stephens (late Chief Stoker H.M.A.S. Australia) speaking for the Y.M.C.A. thanked the boys for all they had done also the ladies for the excellent entertainment provided. Sgt. Knill C.M.G. Croix de Guerre with palms responded on behalf of the men. He said they were all visiting Australia for the first time but they felt quite at home already. That day they had a pleasing intro-

duction to the “bush” of which they had heard much. *** RATEPAYERS are reminded that unless all rates are paid on or before the 10th June next their names will not appear on the new Assessment Rolls. As the annual elections take place in August all interested in the progress and good government of the shire should make sure that the privilege to vote is not taken from them. The sub division of the North Riding and the creation of the new Seaford Riding means that added interest will be given to the forthcoming contests. All the North Riding councillors retire and in addition to filling these vacancies there will be three new representatives to elect for Seaford Riding. All good citizens will want to be in the fun “when the whips are cracking.” *** AT the Dandenong Shire Council meeting on Monday, a letter was received from the Board of Health, forwarding instruction for local bodies in dealing with the epidemic. A communication came to hand (through the Board of Health) from the registrar of births and deaths at Dandenong, complaining that adequate steps were not being taken to prevent the spread of influenza in Dandenong. Cr. Pearson supported the statements embodied in the letter referred to, and said that persons from houses where the disease had been, should not be allowed to come and register deaths – for that meant spreading the disease. *** FROM the pages of the Mornington Standard, 7 June 1919

PENINSULA Therapeutic and Research Group is part of an international trial testing a drug that aims to slow down cognitive decline in people with Alzheimer’s disease. The trial is recruiting 450 people, aged 60-85 living with mild cognitive impairment or mild Alzheimer’s disease. It aims to demonstrate that the drug, Anavex 2-73, shows benefits for those living with the disease. Dr Jennifer Grunfeld, principal investigator at Peninsula Therapeutic and Research Group, said she became interested in this trial following the promising results seen in an earlier Australian study, which achieved significant cognitive improvement in some participants. For many participants in the previous trial, there was no deterioration in their cognitive function. Some participants regained functions previously lost, such as the ability to paint and play the piano, while a person who re-sat the driving exam successfully regained their licence. The drug is a disease-modifying therapy and this trial will test whether the drug can stabilise

the progression of the disease. The trial is being run by American biopharmaceutical company, Anavex Life Services. If the trial is successful and Anavex 2-73 can modify the course of the disease, it would be a complete game changer in the treatment of Alzheimer’s disease. Dr Jennifer Grunfeld, who has been running clinical trials in mental health and dementia for over 15 years said, “It is exciting to be able to provide patients in and around the Peninsula with access to clinical studies trialing the latest medications.” Peninsula Therapeutic and Research Group are located at 137 Frankston Flinders Road, Frankston and are currently looking for patients with a diagnosis of mild Alzheimer’s Disease to participate in their clinical trials. Patients do not require a referral to be seen at the clinic, there is no cost for consultations and travel costs are reimbursed. If you have any questions or are interested in participating in one of their research trials, please call the research nurse on 03 9770 1579 or email info@ptrg.com.au.

THE MEANING OF EXISTENCE... AND OTHER SHORT STORIES

So Long Grumpy Cat, I Barely Knew You By Stuart McCullough FAREWELL, Tardar Sauce. Gone to that great scratching post in the sky. I barely got the chance to know you. Although I’m much more a dog person, it’s hard not to be somewhat floored by the sheer awesomeness of your achievements. Very few cats achieve stardom. Fat Cat, Felix, Hector the Safety Cat – you can count famous cats on one hand. But none of them can hold a candle to the legend of Tardar Sauce. My only regret is that most people know you by a stupid nick name rather than the one your owner gave you. Were I to say ‘Tardar Sauce’, I’d be greeted by a shrug of the shoulders. But should I say ‘Grumpy Cat’ everyone will instantly know what I’m talking about. The Internet sensation, Grumpy Cat, is no more. Having passed away peacefully at home, her grumpy countenance will no longer be available for memes, coffee mugs or assorted paraphernalia. It’s over. The impact is incalculable. It’s no secret that cats are one of the major factors behind the success of the Internet and, at this stage, it’s not clear whether the thing can continue without her. No one would have heard of YouTube if not for cat videos. The numbers tell the story. Grumpy Cat has more than eight million followers on Facebook. I don’t know much about social media, but that strikes me as a lot given that Grumpy Cat, presumably, can’t type. Grumpy Cat also has almost two and a half million followers on Instagram and one and half million on Twitter.

Which sounds like a lot until you realize that President Trump has around fifty million Twitter followers and, given that the comments of Grumpy Cat and the President are largely interchangeable, seems a touch rough on the cat.

I must say, I’m quite drawn to the phrase, ‘internet celebrity cat’ for a number of reasons. Firstly, I never thought I’d live long enough that those words would ever belong in the same sentence, much less a single phrase. Secondly, the fact that it is a

phrase means that there’s more than one of them. Which is astonishing. ‘Internet celebrity cat’ is now its own subcategory of fame. If there are telltale signs of an impending apocalypse, surely this is one. But Grumpy Cat was not just some cheap celebrity. You could spend tonnes of money on official Grumpy Cat merchandise by shelling out for one of the one thousand and eighty two items available for sale from her website. There are lots of t-shirts and hilarious mugs and, well, that’s about it. There’s only so much you can do with the ‘Grumpy Cat’ brand. It’s not as though you could release the official ‘Grumpy Cat’ set of Ginsu knives without shredding your credibility. That said, there is the ‘Grumpy Cat’ book. While it didn’t trouble the scorers at the Man Booker Prize, I may officially be jealous. The cat emerged in 2012 and quickly became a sensation. The following year, Grumpy Cat appeared at a festival called the ‘South by Southwest Interactive’ in Austin, Texas. Fans waited in line for hours just for the chance to meet her and the cat threw some serious shade over other festival guests including Neil Gaiman and Elon Musk. It was just the beginning. There was a film too. ‘Grumpy Cat’s Worst Christmas Ever’ may not have set the box office alight, or if it did, it was solely an act of coldblooded revenge for people not having gone to see it. Released in 2014, it immediately wandered off into the bushes and hasn’t been seen since. I’m sure it’s for the best.

That’s not the only bump in the road. There have been, as they say in the biz, ‘legal issues’. These arose after ‘Grumpy Cat Limited’ partnered with a beverage firm to produce the ‘Grumppacino’. In case you’re wondering (and how could you not?) the Grumppacino is an iced coffee. However, it was later alleged that a range of other products were produced without permission including Grumpy Cat ground roasted coffee and, naturally enough, Grumpy Cat sued. And won a six-figure sum. It says something about the age in which we live. Quite what, I’m not sure, but something. The sheer weight of random fame is as bizarre as it is terrifying. Having said that, as I write I’m casting one eye over towards my dog lying on her mat and I’m beginning to wonder why she isn’t producing YouTube videos of her own, as a means of contributing to household expenses. That’s said, she’d be more likely to bury a t-shirt in the back yard than sell one. It’s a shame that the cat’s time on Earth was cut somewhat short. Whether it was the fame and the lifestyle that went with it is impossible to say. All I know is that poor old Tardar Sauce is gone and is never coming back. I’d say that we’ll never see her like again, but I just saw a YouTube video featuring a marmot repeatedly saying ‘Alan’ and I feel that the Tardar Sauce-shaped hole in my heart will be very quickly filled. That’s how it goes on the Internet. Grumpy Cat is dead. Long live Grumpy Cat. stuart@stuartmccullough.com Mornington News

Pythons nipped by the Buds

DIVISION ONE

By Brodie Cowburn PINES have suffered a shock defeat for the second consecutive week after being bested by Rosebud at Olympic Oval. Looking to bounce back from a disappointing loss last week, Pines still didn’t look at their best in the first term. At the quarter time break Rosebud held a surprise eight point lead. Pines pushed back in the second quarter and took back the lead, and were up by 11 at the main break. Despite losing some momentum Rosebud refused to lie down, and with the difference standing at just one point going into the final term, the game looked poised to go down to the wire. The promise of a close finish was taken away when Rosebud ran away with it in the final term, kicking five goals to the Pythons’ two. Rosebud had to work hard, but eventually secured the win 11.10 (76) to 8.14 (62). Thomas Stoffels booted three goals for the Buds, while Josh Fisher also played at his best. Pines will have a chance to get back on track next week when they take on bottom of the ladder Mornington. Traditionally dominant Franskton YCW also struggled this weekend, as they fell short against Mt Eliza. The Stonecats looked a shell of the side which has dominated the league for the last decade, and only kicked one goal in the first half of the game. The Redlegs also struggled to put goals on the board, but were able to do enough to establish a buffer. They eventually got the win in a low scoring matchup 4.10 (34) to 7.10 (52). Mitch McCarthy and Shane Tennant were among the best for the victorious Redlegs. Dromana kept up their good start to life in the top division, claiming the four points against Bonbeach.

The Sharks went into quarter time with a narrow lead, but the Tigers got back on top in the second term. A see-sawing first half was contrasted by a one sided second, as Dromana blew the Sharks out of the water. An eight goals to three second half helped Dromana get the win over Bonbeach 13.15 (93) to 6.11 (47). At Regents Park, the Frankston Bombers recovered from a rough start to claim a win over Edithvale-Aspendale. Edi-Asp got things started on the right foot, leading at both the quarter and half time breaks. The Bombers were struggling to convert their chances, and would have been in a better position had they not kicked 3.10 in the first half. The Bombers steadied the ship and got back in the contest by kicking five straight in the third term. Up by two heading into the final quarter, the Bombers were able to kick away and secure a hard fought win. The final score read 8.10 (58) to 10.15 (75). The loss is particularly devastating for Edi-Asp, who have only notched one win for the year. At David Macfarlane Reserve, Sorrento fought off a brave Mornington outfit. The Bulldogs have struggled badly all season and look to be in danger of relegation. Up against the ladder leaders away from home, few would have expected them to be competitive. The Bulldogs had an answer for everything the Sharks threw at them, and led by less than 10 points at each break of play. Sorrento were able to run away with it on the final quarter by kicking seven goals, securing them the win 14.16 (100) to 10.6 (66). Leigh Poholke and Jackson Calder each kicked four goals for their respective sides.

Yabbies score dominant win at home DIVISION TWO

By Brodie Cowburn A STUNNING seven goals to one opening term has helped set Tyabb up for a massive win over Pearcedale at Bunguyan Reserve. The Yabbies have been among the strugglers this year, but had a chance to get a win over another struggling side in Pearcedale. Tyabb proved they are a side with plenty of ability by putting Pearcedale to the sword, eventually running away with a 92 point win. The final score read 20.9 (129) to 4.13 (37). Matthew Ravenall booted seven goals while his teammate Michael Altenkirch also chipped in with a bag of five. Another dominant display took place at Chelsea Reserve, as the travelling Red Hill solidified their status as the team to beat this year with an impressive win. Taking on Chelsea, Red Hill started positively and held the Seagulls goalless in the first term. Chelsea never looked a chance, as Red Hill put together another unbelievable performance, They have regularly destroyed sides this season, and Saturday proved no different. Chelsea could only manage three goals for the day as Red Hill claimed the win 3.7 (25) to 18.14 (122). Jonathon Ross booted six goals for the Hillmen, taking his tally to the year to 34. Things were a little closer at Lloyd Park as

Hunted down: Red Hill smashed Chelsea by nearly 100 points. Picture: Andrew Hurst

Langwarrin hosted Hastings. Hastings went scoreless in the first term but hit back in the second to get within seven points. Although the Blues kept in touch all day, a five goals to one final quarter saw the Kangaroos win 10.15 (75) to 5.13 (43). Seaford also had to endure a tight game in order to claim the four points this weekend, as they hosted Devon Meadows. The Panthers got the upper hand early in the low scoring affair, and led by seven at the first break. The Tigers took the lead back in the second term and managed to keep the Panthers at an arm’s length for the remainder of the afternoon. Seaford were held to just one goal in the last quarter but had done enough to get the win 9.8 (62) to 8.5 (53). Somerville had no trouble finding the scoreboard against Rye, scoring a good comeback win. The Demons started off in charge, and led by 14 points at the first break. Somerville hit back in the second term and led by four at half time, with both sides finding the scoreboard without trouble. A six goals to one third term put the result beyond doubt, as Somerville ran away with it. The Demons couldn’t back up their good first half and eventually succumbed to defeat 20.12 (132) to 12.15 (87). Daniel Marshall and Ryan Gillis both booted five for the Eagles. Crib Point had another difficult afternoon, losing by over 100 points against Karingal. The Bulls rampaged through the Magpies, with Matthew Stanley booting seven goals and Marc Holt six. The siren finally sounded to put the Magpies out of their misery with the scoreboard reading 21.15 (141) to 5.5 (35). Mornington News

Portelli, Etheridge, Jansz for Langy SOCCER

By Craig MacKenzie LANGWARRIN agreed terms with Lucas Portelli and Max Etheridge last weekend and they are expected to make their debuts against Brunswick City on Saturday. Portelli is an 18-year-old central defender signed from Melbourne City and Langy tried to sign him before the start of the season. Etheridge, 28, is a former Morwell Pegasus, Bentleigh Greens and Mornington striker and has recently finished a second stint at Kingston City. Winger Brandon Jansz, 19, agreed terms with Langy last week. He is a former Melbourne Victory, South Melbourne, Mornington and Peninsula Strikers player and was signed from Springvale White Eagles. The player points system in force at NPL level forced Langwarrin to make room for their new signings so strikers Roddy Covarrubias and Johnny Kuol were released. Both players were shocked when told as Covarrubias has been one of Langy’s hardest workers this season while Kuol is a cult figure at the club due to his trademark somersault goal celebration. Jansz made his debut in last weekend’s 4-1 home loss to Whittlesea Ranges. A long-range effort from Luke Goulding in the 12th minute opened the scoring but Whittlesea levelled through Jose Ramires five minutes before half-time and second-half goals from Jonathan Datillo (2) and Lawrence Shuruma completed the scoreline. In NPLW news Southern United lost 7-0 to Alamein at Monterey Reserve last weekend. Southern’s under-19s lost 1-0 as did the under16s while the under-14s won 3-0 with goals from Rhiannon Kelleher (2) and Alex Jones and the under-12s lost 2-0. In State 1 news Mornington drew 0-0 at home against big-spending Nunawading City on Saturday. Adam Jamieson’s side was dealt a bodyblow when Sam Scott suffered a fractured fibula and ankle and had to be replaced by Chris McKenna after 24 minutes. Mornington will hold a mid-season review after its next match against Eltham Redbacks in a fortnight and may reset its goals for the remainder of the season. In State 2 news Peninsula Strikers lost 2-0 at home to North Caulfield on Sunday. Strikers went into the match without suspended midfielder Grant Lane and Jon Guthrie who is recovering from a medial ligament strain while big Michael Hoogendyk was on the bench as he had battled flu throughout the previous week. A combination of poor finishing and remarkable reflex saves from North Caulfield keeper Sam Quinn kept Strikers at bay. Big John Prescott could have had five or six goals to his name while Anton Vulic couldn’t hit the target when Prescott sent him through in the 30th minute with just Quinn to beat. North Caulfield player-coach Ariel Rix was sent off from the technical area four minutes into

the second half after persistently complaining about refereeing decisions. His departure was greeted with a chorus of derisory laughter from home fans but the visitors were to have the last laugh. Strikers soon discovered that their first-half profligacy in front of goal was to continue throughout the second period. Hoogendyk and Matt Harrington came off the bench in the 65th minute with Harrington causing problems for North Caulfield down Strikers’ right flank and he twice set up Prescott to no avail. In the 78th minute Hoogendyk’s shot was blocked, Harrington’s shot from the rebound was blocked and when the ball fell to Jordan Avraham on the left he struck a low drive that flashed just wide of the far post. Just when it seemed that we were destined for a scoreless draw the visitors struck. Strikers had the ball in the back of the net in the 81st minute only to be denied by the linesman’s flag. North Caulfield quickly took the resultant free-kick and within seconds Benji Schneider was scooting down the right wing and his square ball across the face of goal was met by a sliding Shayan Missaghi for the opener. Four minutes later Joshua Hodes reacted quickest to a scramble inside the Strikers’ area and poked the ball past Strikers’ keeper Colin McCormack to make it 2-0. There was no way back now for the home side. In State 3 news Skye United earned bragging rights and stretched its winning streak to six games with a 2-0 win over Frankston Pines at Monterey Reserve last Friday night.

FRANKSTON FOOTBALL CLUB

The bizarre elements of this match involved a half-time streaker and a second-half delay while someone left the ground to ask the driver sitting in his car parked directly behind the Pines goals to turn off high beam. Goodness knows what would have happened had the driver exercised their right to refuse the request. But there was some football played and Pines fashioned the first good chance after three minutes when CJ Hodgson squared the ball to Meron Negassi inside the area and his first-time shot was parried by Skye keeper Jonathan Crook. The opening goal came in the 12th minute when Skye broke quickly down the right and Mikey Turner played in big Daniel Attard whose first-time sidefoot was angled wide of Pines keeper Alfonso Cardinale. In the 24th minute Jason Nowakowksi was put through on the right of the area and his cutback was met at the back post by the incoming Mitch Blake for a tap-in and a hammer blow to the home team’s hopes from which it never recovered. Three minutes later Blake should have put Pines out of its misery but he blasted high and wide with just Cardinale to beat. But the miss-of-the-night award went to wee Turner after Attard put him through in the 63rd minute and the Scottish striker had his first attempt parried by Cardinale then ran onto the rebound and faced with an unguarded goal did the difficult thing by missing the target. Pines went into the match without experienced defender Daniel Mota who was ill, midfielder Serge Yanez was unavailable while striker Jason Bradbury is still on his honeymoon. Skye midfielder Jack Gallagher is overseas but

new signing Alex Rojas came off the bench in the second half and the former Northcote City, Dandenong City and South Springvale midfielder could play a vital role in the club’s promotion push. Midfielder Marcus Collier continues his rehab from ACL surgery and is expected to be back in action in six to eight weeks. In State 4 news Baxter lost 5-1 at home to Seaford United last weekend. Baxter went into this clash undermanned and its cause was all but lost after 14 minutes when both central defenders had to be substituted. Matt McDermott suffered a broken eye socket in a head clash in the 10th minute and Izaak Barr’s hamstring injury ended his involvement four minutes later. Barr was unlucky as the referee didn’t see the linesman flagging for offside and play continued forcing Barr to stretch out to block a shot heading for goal resulting in his injury. Dylan Waugh opened Seaford’s account in the 19th minute when he was put through and shielded the ball well on the left of the area before neatly clipping it past advancing Baxter keeper James Foster and into the far corner of goal. Foster stopped Seaford ending this as a contest in the first 45 minutes but he couldn’t stop a low Nic Ormond volley from just inside the area in the 56th minute after Baxter twice failed to clear properly. Seaford player-coach Matt Morris-Thomas replaced injured Waugh early in the second period and he headed in to make it 3-0 in the 68th minute then rounded Foster for a tap-in four minutes later. In the 74th minute Seaford keeper James Madafferi stopped Nat Daher from converting Baxter’s best chance but in the 83rd minute Lewis Gibson threaded the eye of the needle with a drive from the right of the area when Madafferi had anticipated a cross. Foster lost possession after diving low to stop a Morris-Thomas shot a minute later and Matthais Schwellinger strolled into goal to make it 5-1. In State 5 news Somerville missed a host of chances but kept its promotion chase on course with a 2-1 home win over Bunyip District last weekend. Ben Meiklem and Mark Pagliarulo scored for Somerville. Rosebud won 2-1 away against Hampton Park United with Chris Parry and Mike Durrance scoring for Rosebud while Aspendale’s goals in its 4-2 home loss to Endeavour Hills Fire came from Kenan Nuhanovic and Ben Garside Weinert. This weekend is a catch-up round for State League sides while there is a full NPL program for both men and women. There are just four matches featuring local clubs: This week’s games: Brunswick City v Langwarrin (Dunstan Reserve), Calder Utd v Southern Utd (Keilor Park Recreation Reserve), Brighton v Skye Utd (Dendy Park, pitch 5), Rosebud v Somerville Eagles (Olympic Park).

MORNINGTON NEWS scoreboard

Jim Conlan takes reins of Singapore star By Ben Triandafillou MORNINGTON-based racehorse trainer Jim Conlan is set to train Singapore’s second highest-rated galloper and five-time Group One winner, Debt Collector. The former Cliff Brown-trained “Horse of the Year” (2016) has amassed more than $3.1 million in prize money and is set to leave for Australia this month. Debt Collector, a 122-rated six-year-old gelding, has claimed 12 wins and four placings from his 24 starts, including two Group Two’s and a Group Three. It will be the Singapore star’s second trip to Australia, having spelled for five months at Newhaven Farm in the Hunter Valley last year. That trip came after his form took a nosedive at the end of 2017 and clearly worked wonders with the gelding returning to Singapore to add four more wins to his tally, including two at Group One level over 1600m and 1800m. Conlan said the conditions Debt Collector will encounter at Pinecliff will be in stark contrast to those he had in Singapore. “Cliff rang me a couple of weeks ago and was telling me the horse was having a few issues handling the conditions in Singapore,” Conlan said. “I’ve watched all his replays, he’s obviously a fairly talented horse, but it’s always a bit of a query how Singapore form will translate in Australia. But he’s probably the best performed horse to come out of Singapore for a while. “It will be exciting to see where he ends up.” Conlan, who trains out of Pinecliff, Mount Eliza, has already had success with another former Singapore galloper, Clear For Action, who claimed a Moonee Valley metropolitan race in the winter of 2013. Clear For Action was also formerly trained by Brown and had finished second in three Group One races prior to debuting in Australia. Debt Collector will need to enter Australian quarantine before heading into Conlan’s care.

Seven straight: Debt Collector wins the Raffles Cup in Singapore, his seventh straight victory. Picture: Supplied

Real recommendations from real people “Wow. The care and love received at Village Glen Mornington was amazing. I cannot speak more highly of the staff. Mum’s care was nothing more than exceptional and I thank Village Glen for giving us our mum back. Village Glen should be used as a template for how nursing homes should be run.”

“I would sincerely like to give praise and thanks to all the staff that I have encountered. Everyone has made my visits to see my mum at Village Glen Mornington a regular occurrence and one that I look forward to everyday. My visits to Village Glen are sometimes the highlight of my day. I know my mum is in a very special and kind place, she is so well cared for. Thank you to all of you, you all deserve commendation from your superiors.”

“My husband entered Village Glen Aged Care Mornington in Memory Support, late September 2018 and I would like to take this opportunity to thank you for the fantastic care he has received. All areas of your facility are of a high standard and the carers are very efficient and always willing to assist. The food is of high quality and plentiful, the carers are always willing to make cups of tea or coffee whenever required and will help you in any way they can.”

The Village Glen Aged Care Mornington team, making our elder Australians and their families proud. 827-829 Nepean Highway, Mornington VIC 3931 1300 VILL GLEN (1300 8455 4536)
