Waste not, want not

MOUNT Martha Primary School has won the Waste Pioneers Program. Their winning pitch was a clean-up rewards system to encourage people to collect rubbish on the beach, weigh it, and earn credits for use at local shops. The free waste education and challenge program was developed by Veolia, in partnership with Mornington Peninsula Shire Council. The students’ pitched their solution at the Pitch Expo last week to a judging panel of the mayor, Cr David Gill, Sustainability Victoria’s Simon Hum and NewTecPoly CEO Peter Barker. Others schools taking part included Tyabb Railway, Mornington Park, Benton Junior College, Somerville Rise, Peninsula Grammar, Woodleigh School, Minimbah Campus, and Kunyung and Mt Eliza primary schools.

Council’s business move ‘curious’ Stephen Taylor steve@mpnews.com.au A PENINSULA business group says it hopes Mornington Peninsula Shire Council’s move to become Small Business Friendly will “herald a change in its approach” to small business. The council last week announced it had “officially become a Small Business Friendly Council, committed to giving small businesses in the region more support”. The council said it was becoming a partner in the Victorian Small Business Commission initiative to “make it a lot easier for small business owners to get started and develop their businesses”. Commissioner Judy O’Connell met with the mayor, Cr David Gill and

CEO John Baker at Rosebud to sign the initiative’s charter. However, local businesses are furious with the council for being anything but business-friendly by ramping up food registration fee renewals and “lacking clarity in the reasons behind fee hikes”. One café owner at Hastings said small hospitality businesses were “being gouged by the council”. (See “Fast food fee rises hard to swallow” The News 30/10/19). Committee for Mornington Peninsula (C4MP) led by former federal minister for small business Bruce Billson, of Mornington – which had called on the shire to join the business commission – was surprised to learn of its membership “only via social media”. This was on the day C4MP hosted a luncheon at Mornington Racing Club

to hear from the Victorian Small Business Commissioner about “what such a commitment involves”. C4MP says it represents 40 peninsula businesses. Mr Billson said he welcomed the council’s move to “become business friendly” and that he “looked forward to tangible action to demonstrate commitment to its pledge ‘to make it a lot easier for small business owners to get started and develop their businesses’”. “Learning about the council’s positive response via social media was a curious way to signal improved support … but it is a step in the right direction,” he said. Mr Billson cited “practical action other councils have taken, such as having concierge services and facilitation support to help small business navigate extensive permit require-

ments and one-stop-shop application processes” as “examples we hope our shire will follow”. “Too often local businesses speak of experiences where [our] council seems to adopt an adversarial approach and aggressively enforces compliance, when a culture of the council as an ally, providing assistance and adopting an educative approach, would be far more supportive of local small businesses,” he said. Other “strong feedback from local businesses [was] that the council was ‘prickly and combative’ to deal with”. “It is encouraging that just weeks after calling on the shire to join the Small Business Friendly Council initiative it has done so,” Mr Billson said. “C4MP is happy to provide this thought-leadership, just as we have done with the question of a ‘regional’

designation for the Mornington Peninsula.” The mayor Cr David Gill said proof the council backed small business was its membership of the Victorian Small Business Commission. “In this case there was no time to notify every business in the shire of our membership,” he said. “We were asked to join and were pleased to do so. We studied their charter and are doing virtually everything mentioned in it.” Cr Gill said a reason for the fee hikes was that the council was under “onerous obligations to the state Health Department” to ensure businesses complied with standards set by the state government. “We don’t want to be prickly with anyone,” he said. “If there’s a problem people should come and talk to us.”

Awards honour hard workers MORNINGTON Peninsula Shire’s older community has no plans of slowing down as shown at the annual Delys Sargeant Age-Friendly Awards. The awards held on Tuesday 22 October recognise individuals, clubs, services or businesses that contribute to building stronger communities for older people. The peninsula has the second highest older population in Victoria with more than 30 per cent of residents aged over 60 – compared to the metropolitan average of 17 per cent. The shire was one of the first councils in Victoria to develop a strategy to promote positive ageing and aims to continue leading the way by recognising the important contribution older people make to our community. Among the winners was Elder of the Year Terry Phippen who was recognised for his work in building

an inclusive community. Mr Phippen has worked closely with a range of community organisations, including growing a men’s shed that welcomes all ages; organising veggie boxes for a local primary school; promoting awareness of the environment and sustainability by making insect hotels and coordinating residents, businesses, CFA, schools, police and many others at the Billy Cart Derby, at Sorrento in March. Southern Women’s Action Network received two awards in the Age Friendly Communities category. For 21 years the network has provided a forum and meeting place for women of all ages, empowering members to become more involved in a wide range of social justice issues. The awards are named in honour of Delys Sargeant (OAM) who was the founding chair of the council’s official

Delys was integral in shaping council’s current approach to supporting residents to age well and remained a life member of PACE until her passing in 2017.

What a surprise: Terry Phippin was named Elder of the Year. Picture: Yanni

Terry nabs Elder award ELDER of the Year Terry Phippen says his Delys Sargeant Age-Friendly Award win is a “real surprise”. “I knew I had been nominated but did not expect to be named Mornington Peninsula Shire’s Elder of the Year,” he said. “It is an honour to be selected from many of the volunteers on the peninsula. I think we all enjoy getting involved in so many activities but it’s always nice to be recognised, if not a little embarrassing.” Mr Phippen said his three “real highlights” this year came about through working with “passionate people in our community”. “It was great helping two ladies realise a dream of buying disability chairs to enable less able people to be taken out onto the water at our fabulous beaches,” he said. “We had a ball raising the money for the chairs and are now working hard

to secure safe beach access in the Sorrento/Blairgowrie area. “Point Nepean Men’s Shed came about through conversations at a dinner party. I didn’t realise there would be so much support for it and how this has grown. There is a great sense of achievement when it all falls into place.” When the opportunity came to recreate an old favourite – billy cart races to raise money for drought relief – Mr Phippen jumped at it. “This year, we tried to keep it simple as we weren’t sure how it would work,” he said. “Again, I enjoyed involving all sorts of people and organisations in coming together for the fun. It was great to be involved with people of all ages.” The best part came afterwards when Mr Phippen was able to send two cheques to farmers’ charities in support of drought relief.

Climate change the focus at hearings THE Legislative Assembly’s Environment and Planning Committee will meet at Mornington this week to look into community initiatives to tackle climate change. The public hearing at the Council Chambers, 2 Queen Street, 12.303.30pm, Thursday 7 November, is one of a series being held in regional Victoria during November. The committee will hear from the Port Phillip Eco Centre, Bayside Climate Action Group, Mornington Peninsula Shire Council and South East Councils Climate Change Alliance. “We’re interested in finding out what’s happening at the local level to tackle climate change and what the Victorian Government can do to support communities take action,” committee chair Darren Cheeseman said. Ahead of the public hearing, the committee will visit a sustainable living centre and a local business that has used environmental upgrade finance to fund energy efficiency initiatives. “Seeing firsthand some of the community initiatives that are being rolled out will help the committee as it determines the recommendations it can make to help support communities in dealing with and mitigating the impact of climate change,” Mr Cheeseman said. Later public hearings will be held at Geelong and Warrnambool followed by Melbourne, Mildura, Shepparton and Wangaratta. The committee has received more than 140 submissions to the inquiry which it posts on its website. A comments box welcomes public comments on issues raised in submissions or at the public hearings.

Remedial reading’s going to the dogs WHEN’S a dog not just a dog? When it’s a story dog helping children learn to read, of course. Story Dogs is a nationwide charity in which volunteers take their dogs into schools to listen to children read and help improve their literacy. Victorian sponsorship development officer Kim Croft said when children read to a dog the outcomes are amazing. “When they are in a non-judgmental setting, the children’s focus improves, their literacy skills increase and their confidence soars,” she said. “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, calm dog.” Story Dogs has been running for 10 years and has 518 volunteers Australia wide. The 26 volunteers on the Mornington Peninsula take their dogs to 16 primary schools. Story dogs are accredited by professional dog trainers to assess whether they are suitable. The volunteers then undertake training to learn how to make reading fun by working through the dog. Retired school teacher and Rosebud

resident Angela Comben joined Story Dogs with her seven-year-old Labrador Millie in August. They attend Eastbourne Primary School. Millie is sponsored by Bendigo Community Bank Rosebud Rye Dromana which covers the costs of everything needed for the dog team to work in the school for the year. This includes accreditation of the dog, training for the volunteer, uniforms, books, book bag, reading rug and insurance. The program we run is free for the children but without the generous support of our sponsors and time

given by our volunteers we would not be able to provide this program,” Ms Croft said. “Our dogs get so excited when we put on their story dog vests. This is their signal they are going off to visit the children. “Then, when we arrive at the school, the children are so excited to see the dogs it creates a win-win situation for us and is very rewarding for our volunteers to see the progress of the children.” Volunteers are welcome to join the program.

Confused about the right blinds for your home?

Beleura Private celebrates 50 year milestone BELEURA Private Hospital is celebrating 50 years of caring for patients on the Mornington Peninsula. To mark the occasion a lunch was held for current and former staff, Wednesday 23 October. When it opened as a 25-bed medical hospital in 1969 the world had just witnessed the first moon landing by Apollo 11 and those in the know were acknowledging the symbolic birth date of the internet. Registered nurse Irene Richardson was instrumental in establishing and running the hospital with help from a few staff. In the 1970s two operating theatres were built and an extra 35 beds added. Clinical services director Margaret Baker said: “The first expansion brought about the introduction of surgical services and, subsequently, orthopaedics became really important – and it is our major specialty still to this day.” Ms Baker has been working at the hospital for three decades, joining the team as a nurse

after moving from England. She immediately felt at home. “We gave the sort of care that I always wanted to give to patients, and I love the way people work together here and the ability we have to develop personal relationships with patients,” she said. Over its 50-year history, the hospital has expanded to offer a wide range of services, including medical, surgical, oncology, mental health and rehabilitation. Its 450 staff care for patients in 157 beds. Construction will soon start on a purposebuilt facility for those with alcohol addiction and mental health disorders, adding an extra 16 beds. A further expansion will include 30 rehabilitation beds, consulting suites and an outpatient gym. “I feel very proud that we have been here for 50 years,” Ms Baker said. “People say there is a friendly feeling and patients appreciate the way the staff work together to look after them.”

Cheers to 50 years: Beleura Private Hospital staff and guests celebrate the milestone last week. Picture: Yanni

Businesses, community back Better Buses push Stephen Taylor steve@mpnews.com.au MORNINGTON Peninsula Shire Council has received letters of support from businesses and community associations for its Better Buses campaign – adding to the 1200 written responses received since the launch in August. As well, 68,000 people have posted content on Facebook and watched videos of peninsula people complaining about the lack of public transport on the peninsula. The campaign, backed by Mornington Chamber of Commerce, confirms why funding better bus routes and increasing the frequency of buses on the peninsula would benefit residents, businesses and visitors. A better service would bring more people from the wider Melbourne community to the peninsula’s major precincts for shopping and experiences and u stimulate the local economy. Job applicants without a licence or car would be able to get to the peninsula more easily. The mayor Cr David Gill said inefficient public transport connections on the peninsula were creating barriers to meaningful employment for many and putting a strain on local businesses. “Having access to reliable, consistent and direct transport could lead to better employment outcomes.” Business, community and ratepayer groups, including the Dromana Industrial Association, Tyabb and District Ratepayers Group, Nepean

Ratepayers Association and Flinders Community Association are among those who have written to support the push for Better Buses. “A regular cross peninsula bus service would assist the Tyabb community,” Tyabb & District Ratepayers Group secretary Katrina Chalke said. “Currently, travelling to the western side of the peninsula, all bus travel must be via Frankston.” Nepean Ratepayers Association president Colin Watson said: “Taking a bus instead of driving is currently not an option, as available buses are not frequent enough, are not readily accessible in many areas and do not go where people want to go.” Flinders Community Association president Jo Monie said: “It is also very difficult to access important medical facilities, such as the Rosebud Hospital, a major supplier of health care on the peninsula.” Cr Gill said: “We need better buses on the peninsula. The current out-of-date transport network is not working for our young people, the disabled, retirees, workers, parents and visitors. In fact 82 per cent of the Mornington Peninsula has no public transport.” Members of the community are encouraged to stay involved with the Better Buses campaign. The shire will continue to engage with the community and visitors throughout the summer period, Cr Gill said. To get involved and to learn more visit mornpen.vic.gov.au/betterbuses.

when the 20 artists in the group will have their personal studios and display areas open to the public.” Peninsula Studio Trail has been running this annual event for 11 years.

CHILDREN on the Mornington Peninsula are invited to help find our missing frogs during FrogID Week, 8-17 November. The citizen-science project being run by the Australian Museum aims to collect audio of frog calls to monitor their populations and help save threatened frog species. So far, FrogID has identified more than 116,000 frog calls and identified 187 of the known 240 Australian frog species. Last year, more than nearly 7000 frogs from 95 species were recorded. The second annual FrogID Week aims to build on the critical data gathered from last year and find frog species missing from the museum’s audio database. Frog species being sought include the rockhole frog, tylers toadlet, wrinkled toadlet, northern spadefoot, shoemaker frog, peron’s tree frog and the motorbike frog (so called because it’s call sounds like a motorbike engine). Amphibian and reptile conservation biologist Dr Jodi Rowley said the recorded calls were vital in understanding what species are where; and how they are being impacted by changes to their environments. “We need as many recorded frog calls as possible in order to build our database and compare year-on-year information,” she said. “Get outside at dusk or after rain to listen for frogs and send us their calls – it’s simple to do and you’ll be helping to save Australia’s frogs.” To take part, download the free FrogID app on your phone and head outside to listen for frogs. When you hear a frog, record the sound with the FrogID app and submit it to the FrogID program. Find out more at frogid.net.au

Stabbing at Dromana

Woman hit, killed at Moorooduc A WOMAN died when she was struck by a car at Moorooduc, Friday 1 November. It is believed several cars pulled up on the side of Mornington-Peninsula Link about 9pm after colliding with debris on the road. The 64-yearold Safety Beach woman had got out of her car when she was struck and died at the scene. The driver of the other car stopped at the scene and is assisting police. Three other people from separate vehicles, a 45-year-old Rosebud man, 67-year-old Dromana woman and 43-year-old Elsternwick woman, were taken to hospital with minor injuries. Anyone with information or dash-cam footage

is urged to contact Crime Stoppers 1800 333 000 or submit a report at crimestoppersvic.com. au

Pushed his luck

AN unlicensed driver at the wheel of an unregistered car pulled over on Frankston-Flinders Road, Tyabb, 7.19pm, Thursday 24 October, also tested positive to cannabis. Somerville Highway Patrol members said the Seaford 36-year-old’s T-shirt, which read: “I Get Enough Exercise Pushing My Luck”, ironically fitted his situation. The driver denied any recent illicit drug use,

but will receive a summons to attend court at a later date. Senior Constable Gregg Wolf, of Somerville CIU, said many drivers who tested positive to drugs thought it would be out of their systems by the time they were being tested. “It is an offence for illicit drugs to be detected at any level in your system,” he said.

A MAN was stabbed outside a house on Point Nepean Road, Dromana, 7pm, Saturday 26 October. He was assisted by witnesses as he made his way to Dromana police station and then taken by ambulance to the Alfred Hospital in a “serious but stable condition”. A 37-yearold Dromana man later surrendered himself to Frankston police. He was charged with recklessly causing injury and remanded to appear at Frankston Magistrates’ Court at a later date.

Cars broken into

OFFENDERS have been accessing unlocked cars and stealing personal items at Rosebud, Dromana and McCrae over the past week. Police urge members of the public to lock their vehicles at all times. Anyone with information is asked to call to Crime Stoppers 1800 333 000.

Search for pair

TWO people are being sought over the theft of a pressure washer from a supermarket on Queen Street, Hastings, 1.50pm, Sunday 18 August. Anyone with information is urged to contact Crime Stoppers 1800 333 000.

Oceans 7/11

A WOMAN who stole chocolates, lollies and canned soft drinks from a Dromana service station on Sunday 22 September is being sought by police. The woman is said to have perused the aisles before selecting the items and walking out of the servo on the corner of Marine Drive and Nepean Highway, at 3am. She was last seen by staff running towards the foreshore. Anyone with information is urged to contact Crime Stoppers 1800 333 000.

Cars, tyres damaged

SEVERAL tyres have been slashed in overnight attacks on vehicles at Mt Martha. Areas affected over the week commencing 28 September were Dominion Road, Glen Isla Drive, Ferne Place and Marguerita Place. Members of the public also reported criminal damage to eight cars in Mornington, including large ‘X’ marks being scratched onto side panels, Saturday 12 October. Areas affected are Nepean Place, Fulton Avenue and Strachans Road. Anyone who saw any suspicious behaviour in either of these areas, has CCTV of suspicious behaviour, or has details of those involved, is urged to call Senior Constable Megan Morgan, of Mornington police, 5970 4900, or Crime Stoppers 1800 333 000.

Auction a smart move PENINSULA Counselling and Care is holding an auction night at Heritage Balnarring, 7-11pm, Saturday 23 November. Mental health practitioner Emma Hayes said money raised would go towards SMART participants and early intervention mental health workshops. “The night will raise funds for early intervention mental health camp and day workshops for participants who usually would not be able to afford it,” she said. “Every child and youth deserves the best skills in life with a wrap-around approach to connect into services and work holistically through a journey that is usually isolated from start to end.” NDIS participants are included in the course which Ms Hayes designed after 20 years in the field and 11 years of further studies.

SMART – which stands for Strength, Mindfulness, Assertiveness, Resilience and Togetherness – will go state-wide, she said. “It offers a variety of therapy approaches delivered in a fun way, and psycho-education will also be provided to the parents. All involved will be linked up with a pen pal for ongoing encouragement.” Take part in the auction and silent auction, presentations, enjoy performances by Heidi Louise, door prizes, finger food throughout the night, with other food available, and beer and wine on arrival. All money raised goes towards SMART participants and early intervention mental health workshops. Details: Peninsula Counselling and Care. 0439 281 707.

Disabilities inspire essays

Proudly published by Mornington Peninsula News Group Pty. Ltd

PHONE: 03 5974 9000 Published weekly

AN essay by Hastings author and polio survivor Fran Henke will be included in a new anthology Growing up Disabled in Australia. Due to be published in June next year by Black Inc, this will be the fifth title in the Growing Up series. “We are still struggling to have polio and its late effects recognised by health professionals, even family members”, Henke said. The acceptance of her essay was timely as October has been declared World Polio Month with Victorian survivors gathering at Warrnambool last week to celebrate Polio Day. The day is traditionally held near the birthdate of Jonas Salk, who developed the vaccine, ending poliomyelitis epidemics around the world. “Our Polio Day this year focussed on the need for change - mentally and physically - as the condition deteriorates,” Henke said.

Island a path away from extinction Stephen Taylor steve@mpnews.com.au

ISLAND homes are providing safe homes for threatened eastern barred bandicoots. Picture: Zoos Victoria

DECADES of conservation work have culminated in the release of around 50 eastern barred bandicoots on French Island. The bandicoots came from captive breeding programs as well as from Churchill and Phillip islands and Hamilton in western Victoria to begin their new life in Western Port. Threatened species biologists and other members of the Eastern Barred Bandicoot Recovery Team have been working with French Island residents for more than a decade to prepare for the moment. “It’s been a long road to get to this stage, but to see the bandicoots racing into their new home [on Friday 11 October] has been an incredible result for all involved,” Zoos Victoria threatened species biologist Dr Amy Coetsee said. “This is by far the most challenging release we’ve ever done and the most rewarding thanks to the support of French Island residents who care deeply about their island home and have welcomed the eastern barred bandicoots into this fox-free environment. “The bandicoots have travelled by boat from four different locations across the state and now have the space to increase their population and help save their species from extinction.” The native Victorian mammal once widespread across the grassy woodlands of southwest Victoria was close to extinction after extensive habitat destruction and the ravages of foxes and cats. Zoos Victoria has been managing the captive breeding program for eastern

barred bandicoots since 1991, with more than 950 born at Melbourne Zoo, Werribee Open Range Zoo and partner organisations during that time. But working out how to breed successfully in captivity has always only been one part of the mission. The goal has always been to return the marsupials to the wild. Fox-free islands are seen as the best chance of re-establishing wild populations, even though bandicoot had never been found on Victorian islands. A trial release was arranged by Phillip Island Nature Parks on the 57-hectare Churchill Island in 2015, after ridding it of foxes and feral cats. That release showed that the bandicoots could live and breed well on islands. It also showed how bandicoots improve the environment through soil turnover and soil health by foraging for worms and beetle grubs with their long snouts. The success of that project, and a declaration that Phillip Island was also fox-free, paved the way for a larger release onto the Summerland peninsula in 2017. Phillip Island Nature Parks’ deputy director of research Dr Duncan Sutherland said: “The captive breeding program, the previous releases onto Churchill and Phillip islands, and now this latest release onto French Island, have provided a form of insurance for the survival of this critically endangered native animal. “The growing populations have demonstrated that eastern barred bandicoots can successfully establish in island environments, while also having positive environmental effects, including reduced soil compaction and improved nutrient and water infiltration.”

Mural brings smiles to all ages A GROUP of creative high school students has helped brighten the walls at Corowa Court with a Positivity Mural. From Aged Care Employee Day in July, the 10 Peninsula Grammar students have visited the aged care home on The Esplanade to create the vibrant mural using residents’ hand prints. About 20 aged care residents aged 80-100 had their hands traced and then added to the mural as tree leaves. Corowa Court resident, 106 year old Thelma, is pictured with the students. Picture: Yanni

Contrasting gardens open for weekend TWO different Mornington Peninsula gardens will open their gates to the public for one weekend next month. L'Oceane at Rye contrasts with Moats Corner, a garden inland from Dromana that has evolved over the past 70 years. Open Gardens Victoria chair Liz Fazio decribes Moat's Corner as “a real treat … a six-acre country styled garden with a modern twist”. “The original garden features winding paths leading to an ornamental lake and various garden rooms, including more than 400 roses,” Ms Fazio said. “The newly built award-winning residence floats above a contemporary succulent and cacti garden created by Colin Hyett.” Named after the Moat brothers who settled in Dromana in the 1860s, the garden was established from 1950 by Jean Duncan, who was inspired “from all corners of the world”. “Today it is a wonderful mix of old and new, with a driveway entrance lined with towering and sculpted Cypress trees planted by the Moat brothers 145 years ago,” Ms Fazio said. “From here, this happily rambling and dreamy garden leads you via a series of paths that weave under pergolas, arches, arbours and gazebos into fascinating garden rooms – all set around an award-winning architectdesigned house which gives the impression it is floating off the ground.” There is a rose garden, a Japanesestyle garden and an ornamental lake fringed with yellow water iris inspired by the gardens of Monet.

OPEN for inspection: Gardens at L’Oceane, Rye (left) and Moats Corner, Dromana (above) will be open to the public over the weekend 9 and 10 November. Pictures: Supplied

Ms Fazio said landscape designer Phillip Withers¬ had brought “new life” to the native garden. Colin Hyett installed the sandy area of garden closer to the house with succulents, cacti and bottle trees. In contrast, L'Oceane, at Rye is “a tranquil seaside garden gem nestled in the sand dunes”. “This garden echoes the nearby coastline with twisted trunks of moonah trees and beachy plantings lining sandy paths to outdoor seating,” Ms Fazio said. “Marine artefacts and old pier timbers lend a sense of age and

authenticity to this coastal garden.” The garden is on a 900-square-metre sloping site with unstable sand dunes for “soil – held together by gnarly tea trees”. “Today, hundreds of local indigenous and native plants have been planted to stabilise the sand and suppress weed growth – but this is far more than a revegetation project,” Ms Fazio said. “Inspired by walks along the clifftops of Rye back beach, the owners have created sandy winding paths through the now sculptural twisted trunks of

the tea trees, mature stands of moonah and sheoaks. Beneath the trees, native grasses contrast against the clipped spheres of coastal rosemary while native creeping pig face cascades over greyed timber retaining walls. “Old pier timbers are used for relaxed bench seating, up-cycled water tanks are used to store firewood, twisted old shipping ropes line the front retaining walls and old steel is juxtaposed against lush green plants. “The owners have also blended a number of much-loved European plants such as echiums and clipped

teucrium with a few deciduous trees such as ginkgo, claret ash and coral bark maple placed at the back of the property for their autumn foliage.” Moat’s Corner is at 415 White Hill Road, Dromana and L’Oceane, 8 Chenier Street, Rye. Both gardens are open to the public 10am-4.30pm Saturday 9 November and Sunday 10 November. Refreshments will be available at both gardens, which are a 30-minute drive from each other. Entry to Moats Corner is $10, L’Oceane $8 (under-18 free). Keith Platt

Classroom incident: A picture of the toy gun allegedly brought to school, as shown in the Herald Sun.

Sorrento students in gun drama SORRENTO Primary School was in damage control last week after the second incident involving offensive student behaviour. Angry parents contacted The News to say a grade three student had taken what they described as a BB gun to the school, threatened other students before allegedly pointing it at the head of a prep girl, and allegedly shooting another boy in the foot when he tried to take the gun away. The pellet did no damage and the boy was unharmed. This incident follows weekend mayhem when children from the school were accused of juming the fence of the Sorrento Early Learning Centre playground and “generally [getting] into mischief, throwing stuff around, removing bikes and riding them around the car park and using seats as Frisbees”. (See “Kids behaving badly in broad daylight” The News 30/10/19). Principal Megan Dallas would not comment on the gun incident other than to say: “Earlier this week, an incident occurred at the school involving a student bringing a toy plastic pellet gun to school. The item was immediately confiscated. “The school has taken appropriate disciplinary action following the incident.” The Education Department’s Dave Sheridan later confirmed that the gun was a “toy that fires plastic pellets” and not a BB gun.

The Herald Sun reported that the gun was a Cobra M206 model which can be bought overseas and online. The News contacted police who would not confirm or deny the make of the gun but said “[we]...can confirm it was a toy gun, not an imitation firearm or prohibited weapon.” The gun was handed in to Rosebud police station on Tuesday afternoon and was expected to be destroyed. Police said they would “not be taking any further action in relation to this incident”. One angry parent, Charles, told Radio 3AW: “That gun was aimed at my child.” “We told the school, the people in the office there, that we won’t be coming back for a couple of days.” Charles said he was unhappy with how the school has dealt with the incident. “We’ve kept our child away but we haven’t had any contact from the school at all. It seems to be protecting the child who has done it.” Lucy, who has several grandchildren at the school, said the boy “kept [the gun] in his bag until lunch time and then he got it out and waved it around and was shooting people,” she said. “He held it to the head of a little prep girl. “The school didn’t call the police or anything, but the mother did later on.”

A boomer remembers the night’s most important dance Keith Platt keith@mpnews.com.au

MURRAY Walding’s The Last Dance revolves around life as a teenager growng up in a bayside suburb. Picture: Supplied

AWKWARD? Yes. Self-conscious? Of course. But, inwardly, there was lots of self-esteem, unlike many of today’s teenagers who are victims to the pressures of social media. These are some of the standout differences that become obvious in a baby boomer’s reflections on life as a teenager while growing up in bayside Melbourne. Murray Walding and his mates grew up around Edithvale and wanted to be part of the surf culture. Friends at school, they expanded their world as soon as one of them could drive and had access to a car. Suddenly the surf was within reach – Point Leo and Phillip Island and later along the west coast to Lorne. Walding has documented their search for fulfilment, recognition and, yes, adulthood, in the appropriately named book The Last Dance with the catchy sub-title of A World of Girls, Go-Gos, Gangs & Giant Waves. Their search for the heart of Saturday night began with lining up outside a dance venue, more often than not a lifesaving club, church hall or former cinema. Out of necessity the dance had to be within walking distance of home. Once inside the darkened interior Walding and his mates would gawk at the girls, sometimes sauntering over to ask for a dance. If the girls stopped looking back or turned to talk to a girlfriend, the walk across the floor would turn into a sheepish walk past, as if on the way to somewhere else. The Last Dance is a quintessential chronicle of the rite of passage common around coastal Australia. It delves into the sometimes-brutal tribalism of rockers, surf-

ers and sharpies. Still surfing at 68, Walding recently underwent a hip operation, something not uncommon for long-term surfers. He moved to Lorne in the early 1970s (where he also met his wife-to-be, Sharon) after attending Frankston Teachers’ College, now Monash University’s Peninsula campus. “I’ve been in Lorne since way back and have been around the edges of the surf industry since back then, but for the past couple of years I’ve been working as a writer – writing chiefly about surf and beach culture, as well as Australian rock music posters,” Walding says. The Last Dance is his fourth book and was originally planned to be about “the wild years of Melbourne nightlife”. But the more Walding started gathering thoughts and memories, the more he realised it was “a coming of age story set against Melbourne’s discos and dances, and also about surfing”. While there is a bit of artistic license taken in direct quotes and venues, Walding confesses to having “a very detailed memory, which is both a blessing and a curse”. His research at the State Library and listening to compilations of music from the 1970s took him back “to an exact place and time that became a very weird and at times emotional experience”. His research revealed Melbourne had 650 venues between 1958 and 1972, “a phenomenon that had never been fully explored”. There was plenty of material covering “pop and rock gods” but nothing about “how things looked from out on the dance floor and how teenagers of the time interacted”. “I also met lots of fascinating and slightly odd-ball people, some were dodgy

underworld figures, and others were deranged promoters, or go-go girls, bouncers, musos and punters. As much as I’d like those stories to be heard I don’t think it would be wise to put them into print,” Walding says. “The book looks at life growing up in Edithvale and the dances there [Kingston] as well as other venues such as Stonehenge and Shindig and Penthouse.” The relaxing of liquor laws and the emergence of club and pub venues saw the demise of the local dances that bracketed the lives of Walding and his mates. Even the New Year’s Eve lockout at the Great Ocean Road entrance to Lorne is a distant memory. “They’re not like that anymore. The Falls Festival keeps a lot of the kids occupied and there hasn’t been a road block down the street in maybe 25 years,” Walding says. Although a long-standing teacher, Walding ran a surf shop in Lorne and another specialising in original vintage beach posters, but now he “just writes or sells posters online”. Walding says The Last Dance has resonated with many readers “fondly remembering” those first, sometimes awkward but character-building times, when a night was counted a success if you were standing next to a dance partner as the last chords faded in the speakers. “The last dance of the night was the most important in lots of ways. If you hadn’t managed a dance by then, the night was a failure.” The Last Dance is now available for $34.95 at Beaumaris Books, Grumpy Swimmer in Elwood, Thesaurus in Brighton and The Avenue Book Stores, Albert Park and Elsternwick.

Bass & Flinders Distillery celebrates 10th anniversary with limited-edition brandy blend TO mark the 10th anniversary, revered artisanal distillery Bass & Flinders Distillery (B&F) is launching a limited-edition FrenchAustralian brandy blend, in collaboration with renowned French Cognac house, NormandinMercier (N-M). Described as old-world tradition meets new world Australian creativity, ‘Anniversary Cuvée’ will be a specially curated blend of B&F Chardonnay-based brandy with N-M Petite Champagne cognac. The 330-bottle, single-release will be the world’s first French-Australian brandy blend. B&F Managing Director and second-generation Head Distiller, Holly Klintworth, has been working side-by-side with fifth-generation N-M Cellar Master, Edouard Normandin to bring this creation to life. The collaboration came to fruition after Holly connected with Edouard back in 2017 during a research visit to Cognac to explore the Charentaise distillation method (the method of producing grape based eau de vie through double distillation using an alembic pot still and open flame) – a technique which has inspired B&F’s distillation process since its inception in 2009. “As we approached the 10-year mark, I felt we had to do something special to commemorate the milestone, and what better way than with an exciting, limited-edition release like no other, an ‘old-world meets new’ brandy that encapsulates Bass & Flinders’ story and ethos,” Holly said. “I knew with Edouard’s family lineage, recognised as one of the most highly regarded cognac specialists in the region, that he would be the perfect craftsman to assist me executing my idea for this brandy blend, that honours the two worlds and family traditions.” Both distilleries have the same philosophy: nothing artificial, small volume and high qual-

ity - making the collaboration a match made in heaven. Usually, when blending, a distiller will reference from past blends and batches to draw inspiration from, but in this instance, they were working from a blank canvas and an idea. Before the two set to work, they established a few goals: the product would represent both styles equally, would only use natural elements (nothing artificial) and would achieve a full and broad reaching aroma. The creation was an iterative process of trial and error, working predominately with their noses to sort through the various layers and aromas that could meld together for the perfect blend. Holly brought several barrel samples with her to trial in various blends with the N-M cognac, and the pair selected their favourite of the B&F - N-M samples to create the base of the Anniversary Cuvée. “We went through barrel after barrel to nose each and every character and layer until we found some common threads that we felt would marry nicely in the collaborative blend, before settling on 2014 Petite Champagne cognac,” Holly said. Those lucky enough to nab a bottle of the single-release can expect a refined combination of aromatically sweet, expressive Chardonnaybased brandy, with the silky smoothness and floral delicacy of the Petite Champagne cognac on the palette. “It’s not too heavily oaked and will let the B&F brandy character and fruitiness shine through on the nose but has a floral bouquet that adds a unique accent to the blend,” Edouard said. Anniversary Cuvée is retailing for $250 for the 700ml bottles in market and will be available for purchase on the Bass & Flinders Distillery website.

Finally, Relief From Your Hip Pain DOES this describe YOU? • You get hip pain laying on your side in bed, and just can’t get to sleep. • You place a pillow between your legs to help you get to sleep but laying on the painful side is still waking you. • You find yourself standing on one leg with your other hip hanging lower, or you sitting with crossed legs causes the pain • You are a runner worried your hip pain will get worse and stop you from exercising. If so then read on. The pain on the outside of the hip can be due to inflammation of the gluteal tendon, of Gluteus Medius and Minimus, where the gluteal muscles attach. It can also be where a bursa (a fat pad called the trochanteric bursa) can become inflamed. The hip pain may be associated with a stiff back. Physiotherapist May Wan, says that it is an injury affected by hip weakness and postural habits that place the tendons under stress. It requires a full analysis of the hip and lower limb, looking from the foot to the back biomechanics. It can require massage, and specific strengthening exercises for the gluteal muscles as well as improving core stability to control pelvic movement. In addition to the above solutions, there is a recent healing technology that is making a profound difference to outside of the hip pain sufferers. Practice owner, Paul Rowson says

Physiotherapist, May Wan. “Shockwave Therapy is often useful, because the gluteal tendons are a connective tissue, not a muscle. It puts a significant shockwave through the tissues you apply it to. It is a pressure wave which brings blood flow to the area. Tendons and connective tissue do not have much blood supply and can take a long time to heal. Shockwave artificially stimulates the healing of the tendon.” Shockwave therapy can also be used on Achilles tendonitis, Plantar Fasciitis, golfer’s and tennis elbow, and rotator cuff tendon problems,

and is usually most effective on long term chronic problems, rather than acute injuries. Shockwave is not the first line of treatment for injured patients. Physiotherapy and graded exercise are more likely in the first instance. But for more stubborn conditions, shockwave has shown good results. “The evidence at the moment suggests between three to five treatments are required, but most people should see an improvement within three sessions. It has a success rate up to 90%” May says. The Shockwave therapy is administered for a three-minute period

to the affected area during consecutive weekly appointments. “It is a bit of an uncomfortable sensation” May says, “like most physio hands-on treatments, with a little discomfort during the treatment.” Paul says, “After each session, most people get a significant reduction of pain and symptoms. Long term it stimulates healing, short term it reduces pain. The best thing is, the effects are long lasting. It prevents a lot of people having more invasive things like surgery or injections. The treatment is considered safe, but can produce skin reddening or bruising, short term pain, and

cannot be used on people taking blood thinning medications or with bleeding disorders. “ “It is important to know that Shockwave has a long-term effect. Most of the time you have good outcomes, without having to have further treatments.” Shockwave is now available in Balnarring.

100 YEARS AGO THIS WEEK...

Free hearing Electrification of the FrankstonSay lineWhat?... in doubt tests to Senior during Seniors Week

Compiled by Cameron McCullough THE original intention of the authorities was to include the line to Frankston among the first railways to be electrified. That was before the commencement of the war. During the last five years the scheme naturally hung fire, and no one wondered very much, believing that with the cessation of hostilities the long-delayed work would be proceeded with on the plans already formulated. It will come as a rude surprise to many to learn that it is now suggested to hang up the electrification of the Frankston line in favour of what is described as the outer suburban system. The Progress Associations from Mordialloc to Frankston are strongly protesting against this breach of faith, and at Seaford’s last monthly meeting a circular from the combined associations was read setting out the position and asking that delegates be appointed to attend a conference to be held at Caulfield at an early date to discuss the matter. All the shire councils interested will also send delegates. The Seaford association appointed Messrs. Hunter, McCulloch and Moffatt as its representatives. Mr. McCulloch remarked that his company would be a large user of electric power in connection with the working of the sand pits, and it is believed that many other private users could be named. Apart from any advantage the department would gain in this respect, it is to be remembered that Frankston is

quite the most important seaside line in the State, and its claim to first recognition cannot be justly overlooked. *** THE public meeting held on Wednesday evening to re-organise the Frankston Brass Band proved very successful, an encouraging feature being the large attendance of playing members. The general public was not largely represented, but the assurance was given that the towns people were solidly behind the movement, and Mrs M. R. Deane, who was the only representative of the ladies present, said she was sure that the ladies of the district could be relied on for solid support. Mrs Deane gave evidence of her own sympathy with the object by subscribing £1 1s for which she was accorded a hearty vote of thanks, carried by acclamation. Mr Mark Brody donated 10s 6d and received similar acknowledgment. Mr A. Wilcox was voted to the chair and the following, were present in addition to those already named, Messrs Blaskett, Chittenden, Johns, Clements, Petrie, Aitken, Gummes, L. Prosser, Lunn, C. Taylor, C. Lawrey, A. G. Pollock, C. Willox and W. C. Young. Mr Willox as secretary of the band produced the books and balance sheet showing the financial position 5 years ago, when it was found necessary to discontinue owing to the war. At that time there were 23 playing members, more than half of whom enlisted; the others were either too young or ineligible. The balance sheet at that period

showed a debit of £26 11s 0d while the assets included instruments and uniforms valued at £147. This asset was still available with the exception of the big drum £6 and double bass instrument £15 which had bad been sold to meet the liability referred to. A general desire had been expressed in favor of reforming the band but some difficulty had been experienced in arranging for a “bandmaster”. At last they had been fortunate, said Mr Willox, in securing the services of Mr Blaskett, who had recently settled in the district. There were plenty of playing members available and no difficulty should be experienced in making a start. The public had always supported the band freely and he felt sure would do so again. Mr D. Petrie agreed that there seemed no reason why another start should not be made and this view was unanimously adopted. The election of office-bearers resulted as follows: – President – Mr A. Wilcox, Vice-President – Mr Mark Brody, Secretary and Treasurer – Mr C. Willox, Committee – Messrs A. Aitken, W. Clements, D. Petrie, and R. Lunn. Auditors – Messrs C. Dalman and A. Tasker. It was resolved unanimously on the motion of Mr Willox seconded by Mr Aitken that Mr Blaskett be appointed band-master. Members initiation fee was fixed at 2s 6d. It was decided that members meet for practice on Wednesday nights, the first practice to take place on the 12th inst.

WHAT’S NEW...

Rockfest readies for Saturday family fun day SATURDAY is Family Day where there’s something on offer for everyone, young and old at the Rosebud Foreshore Rockfest. Cars, bands, shows, competitions, food trucks, stalls and more is on offer throughout the day and night at the festival, held from 14-17 November. Thousands of visitors are expected to join in the great variety of events and activities, all thoughtfully created to appeal to all visitors, car enthusiasts and Rock ‘n Rollers alike. From 9.30am to 3pm Rosebud’s main strip rocks on with free Main Street family entertainment including internationally acclaimed Elvis Tribute Performer Mike Cole who will be All Shook Up when he struts his stuff performing all things Elvis. From 11am the kiddies can learn Rock ‘ Roll moves and grooves at the Peninsula School of Dance Classes and can check out Carnival rides and Back to the 60’s vintage games including quoits, skittles, Giant Dominoes, Giant Jenga, sack races and Corn Holes. And take a pic in the Barbie Car and stand, visit the Lemonade stand, Animal Farm and for Mum and Dad there’s a a Wine and Beer Garden. Organisers have arranged for part of Point Nepean Road to be closed for what is bound to be one of the festival’s most popular attractions, the Saturday Night Super Cruise. From 7pm to 9.30pm hundreds of vintage, classic and rare cars, Hot Rods and motorbikes will rev up and cruise their much-loved treasures along the closed off stretch for several

kilometres from Jetty Road to Boneo Road. Rockfest Poster Girl Sandi Horne says the cruise is the number one Rockfest highlight. “It’s right up there with the Cooly Rocks On! festival on the Gold Coast,” said Sandi. “ I reckon the Rosebud Saturday Night Cruise might go one better with the hundreds of cars already registered. And this year we also have three fabulous cars from the TV series Dukes of Hazzard that will lead the

parade.” And Saturday Night Fever rocks on at the Big Top Marquee dance groups from all over are geared to dance the night away with some great bands including Honky Tonk Rockers, Moonlighters, Skooterz, and the Village Green Rockfest Beach Party with The Detonators, Fandango, The Nomads and Itchy Fingers. And of course there’s a number of Food Trucks, stalls and licensed outlets open day and night.

THE MEANING OF EXISTENCE... AND OTHER SHORT STORIES

If A Picture Says a Thousand Words, A T-shirt Says One Thousand and One By Stuart McCullough SOMETIMES a t-shirt is just a t-shirt. Sometimes it’s a whole lot more than a piece of clothing – it can be a billboard, a declaration of undying love or a pledge of undying allegiance. You can say things with a t-shirt that are very hard to say with a pair of trousers or, for example, a belt. Only hats come anywhere close, although they suffer from a comparative lack of real estate. T-shirts can do and say quite a lot but often squander the opportunity. I, for one, never saw the point in a t-shirt that simply declared who made it. That’s what the label at the back is for. There’s little benefit in having a piece of clothing made by Calvin Klein that simply says ‘Calvin Klein’ in giant letters on the front. It takes all the mystery out it. Granted, it may be an act of genius to get you to pay him to advertise his product, but I personally feel that Calvin should stump up and buy his own adverts. Sometimes they’re a declaration – a statement that says something about your personality and world view. A joke, a pun or something to think about – you see them as they float by and, often, the meaning strikes you only once the owner has already vanished. I had a fondness for them at one time. My favourite was featured a large illustration of Mr T and the words ‘I Aint’ Getting On No Plane, Sucka’ emblazoned below. It was especially poignant in that I’m both fond of gravity and disinclined towards flight. And I like Mr. T. Then again, who doesn’t? But my favourite kind of t-shirt is the band t-shirt. I have many. Mostly

they’re souvenirs from a great night out; purchased at some sweaty pub or other venue. I have a ‘Flaming Lips’ t-shirt that I bought when I took my nephew Jake to his first grown up rock gig. I have a Nick Cave t-shirt from the brief period during which he sported a mid-seventies pool-cleaner

moustache. I also have one celebrating the ‘Fleet Foxes’ that looks as though it was made by a child and exhibits a lack of quality control and somehow explains why their subsequent albums weren’t nearly as good as their debut. And then there’s Daniel Johnston.

If you’ve never heard of Daniel Johnston, I can’t say I blame you. His early albums weren’t recorded in some fancy studio but, rather, the basement of his parent’s house. He recorded the songs directly to cassette. They’re wobbly, with stops and starts, missed notes and squeaks and pops and random noises. In fact, they’re about as far from a professional recording as you can possibly imagine. But the songs…. the songs were glorious. He gave away cassettes to anyone who’d take them. He was also an artist and he hand-drew the covers of his home-recorded cassettes. Incredibly, his reputation as a songwriter began to develop through the 1980s until he began to struggle with mental illness. From there, his story is harrowing. There’s a film – ‘The Devil and Daniel Johnston’. It follows Daniel from boyhood through to troubled young man inside a mental institution. Despite his troubles, large record companies wanted to sign him after Kurt Cobain from the band Nirvana started wearing one of his t-shirts. Legend has it that he rejected an offer from Elektra Records because the label was home to Metallica and Daniel believed Metallica were in league with Satan. Which, to be fair, is an easy mistake to make. Perhaps the most harrowing part of the movie comes when Daniel performs at a festival. The performance is intense and rapturously received. It’s then revealed that Daniel has been avoiding his medication in the hope of a better performance. On the flight back home, Daniel’s father is

piloting a small aircraft when Daniel decides that he’s Caspar the Ghost and removes the keys to the plane, throwing them out the window midflight. His father, who’d flown in World War Two, managed to bring down the aircraft without injuring them. I first came across him when a tribute album was released in 2004. It featured recordings of his songs by artists like Beck, the Flaming Lips, Sparklehorse and Death Cab for Cutie. Trust me, those are all real bands. Highly regarded, too. They took those scratchy songs and polished them up. They were wonderful. I even had a chance to see him play at the Prince of Wales in St Kilda. That he was able to tour at all was something of a miracle given all he’d been through. I was proud to own a couple of Daniel Johnston t-shirts. Over the years, they took something of a beating and, as I grew older, they didn’t fit as well as they used to. It’s telling, I think, when a t-shirt that once fit you perfectly now feels more like a sausage casing. They lived at the bottom of my drawer, in the unlikely event I could ever squeeze into them again. Daniel Johnston died last month. I found myself listening to those songs – even the ones that had been recorded on a tape deck in his parent’s house. Then I ordered a couple of t-shirts. Naturally, I chose a larger size this time. I feel happy wearing them – declaring my allegiance and appreciation all at once. Thanks Daniel. stuart@stuartmccullough.com

Japanese import takes out Peninsula Cup HORSE RACING

By Ben Triandafillou THE Japanese-bred thoroughbreds continued their dominance of this year’s Spring Racing Carnival with a narrow victory in the 2019 Peninsula Cup at Mornington on Sunday 3 November. Formerly trained in Japan and now under the care of Mornington-based trainer, Anthony Freedman, Danon Roman relished a hot speed to land the days $60,000 feature race and score his first win in Australia in a tight photo finish. The Kevin Corstens-trained Surreal Image went straight to his customary role of leading at a good gallop for young Mornington-based apprentice jockey, Campbell Rawiller, before the swoopers took over the running turning for home. The Mick Price/Mick Kent Jrtrained Heptagon made a real race of it, going neck and neck with Danon Roman down the straight but jockey Damien Thornton wasn’t letting another Peninsula Cup slip through his fingers after being narrowly beaten in last year’s contest. Thornton claimed the victory aboard Danon Roman and defeated the racefavourite, Heptagon, by a short head with the David Brideoake-trained Strategic Phil running into third. More than 7,500 people packed the course for this year’s edition of the

Peninsula Cup, and jockey Damien Thornton said it was a great feeling to land the day’s main event. “I was having flashbacks to last year when I hung in [on Black Sail], had the race won, but got beat. It was nice to turn that around and win it this year,” Thornton said. “He was very good today and there’s definitely still improvement in him. Anthony’s team do a good job at pick-

ing races and more often than not they seem to get it right and get the job done, so it’s nice to play a small part in the team today.” Thornton said the solid tempo of the race was perfect for his runner. “He actually raced a bit fresh and I thought that would have worried him a bit late, but he was good enough to pick himself up and keep going,” he said.

D

As well as claiming the feature Peninsula Cup, Mornington trainers also managed to win another three of the eight other races. Jason Warren claimed the second race of the day with his three-year-old filly, Snap Crackle Boom. The daughter of Spirit of Boom landed a decisive two-length debut victory in impressive fashion. John McArdle took out the fifth

race with his heavily supported runner, Bold Type. It was backed in from $9.50 before starting the race as the $3.60 favourite. He duly saluted by three-quarters-of-a-length and brought up his third career win. The Matt Laurie-trained Katsuma won the second last race of the day and made it back-to-back victories after breaking her maiden at her previous start.

Pines to link with Fijian group SOCCER

By Craig MacKenzie FRANKSTON Pines is on the verge of the biggest off-field restructure in the club’s history as it closes in on a partnership agreement with the Victorian Multicultural Sports Association. The VMSA is a Fijian community group and hopes to base itself at Monterey Reserve and hold tournaments and functions there on a regular basis. Last week members of the VMSA executive met with Nick Hatzoglou, Football Victoria’s Head of Community Projects and the state federation has given the green light for the partnership to go ahead. “The CEO of Football Victoria (Peter Filopoulos) is aware of our plans and is very happy with what we propose,” VMSA president Victor Kumar said. The VMSA has strong ties with the Fiji Football Association and Fiji prime minister Frank Bainimarama. Kumar hosted a business event for Bainimarama in 2018 attended by former Pines vice-president Daniel Plaiche and met with the Fijian PM in September this year on his first official visit to Australia. The VMSA is the fourth ethnic community group to become involved with Pines this century following Chilean, Mauritian and Bosnian groups and although these relationships didn’t last Pines president Lee Davies is hopeful of a much more positive outcome. Pines and the VMSA are likely to enter into a binding agreement ratifying the terms of their partnership. “The VMSA has suggested signing a formal agreement that protects both parties from takeover,” Davies said. “I think there is a clause in our constitution that says you have to be a member of the club for a specified period, something like five years, before you can nominate for president and if any VMSA member is a member of our club for five years then they have every right to nominate for president if they wish.” Kumar and Davies favour a 50:50 committee set-up maintaining the president’s casting vote power and Kumar was at pains during a meeting between both parties last Friday to stress the need for a working partnership. “We have no intentions of taking over Frankston Pines but we want this club to become a sister club of the Fiji Football Association and provide a path to professionalism for

the most promising young players in Fiji,” Kumar added. Pines coaching staff Kevin “Squizzy” Taylor, Paulo Pinheiro and Linam Wang all have B licences – more than the number of B licenced coaches throughout Fiji – and plans are already underway for them to hold clinics in the South Pacific nation. Davies holds a C licence as a goalkeeping coach. Taylor will coach the VMSA squad that will compete in the 2019 Pacific Cup in New Zealand later this month and he is confident that CJ Hodgson and Cedric Benza (Pines), John Kuol (Bulleen), James Burgess (Springvale White Eagles), Marinos Panayi (Beaumaris) and Darcy Pawlik (Murray United) will be guest players. Taylor also expects Chris Swain to be in the VMSA squad. Swain is a forward or midfielder who joined Langwarrin last year from Queensland club Sunshine Coast Fire. He switched to Altona City then Altona North and was a key player in the latter’s State 4 West title triumph last season. Swain currently is in NSW playing in the fourth staging of the National Indigenous Football Championships. Taylor tried but failed to get Ryan

Paczkowski from Oakleigh Cannons to join the VMSA squad and it seems highly unlikely that Langwarrin duo Jaiden Madafferi and Fraser Maclaren will be available. “They’ve been told by Langwarrin that they are not to participate in any external competition like the All Nations Cup, for example, so I don’t think they will be available for the Pacific Cup,” Taylor said. The VMSA will host a Pacific Cup Presentation Night at Monterey Reserve on Saturday 23 November and has already started selling tickets for the dinner-dance at $20 a head. “We expect around 200 people to attend,” Kumar said. The event is a forerunner of what Pines can expect as the VMSA holds four tournaments throughout the year and various social functions which seem certain to keep the tills at Monterey ticking over. At the tournament in NZ Taylor will get an invaluable opportunity to assess at first-hand the Fijian players playing for his VMSA side and Pines will have first option on signing them for next season. Kumar flies to Fiji today (Tuesday) to arrange visas and itineraries for the players there who will compete in the Pacific Cup. Some of the most promising under-

age internationals in Fiji have been selected and the pick of the crop could head to Monterey Reserve. One of those players could be 19-year-old Kishan Sami, a defender or midfielder who plays for premier division club Ba and made his full international debut last year. “I’ve seen a few videos of him and he looks very quick with good feet but he’s not the finished product yet,” Taylor said. “However he definitely has the potential to be an NPL player.” The Fijian players hope to follow in the footsteps of striker Esala Masi who played for Pines in 2008 and made 52 appearances for Fiji. There already have been changes to Pines senior squad with news that Cam Bryden and Lewis Potter have joined keeper Alfonso Cardinale in retirement. And doubts persist about the availability of Callum Khiath and Serge Yanez whose 2019 seasons were curtailed due to work commitments. But the Pines-VMSA link is not the only change planned for the local soccer outfit. “As well as our seniors and reserves we’re looking at having an under-16 side next season, over-35s and over50s and we are well down the track of arranging an all abilities program,”

Davies said. “We’re also in talks with a women’s team.” The all-abilities program already has a major sponsor and Pines will approach local schools this month as it rolls out the program. Both Taylor and Davies are upbeat about the planned changes which they believe could provide the club with a stable financial future. “For the first time in a long, long time I think we are on the brink of having a business model that will make the club self-sustaining and not reliant on people having to put their hands in their pockets,” Taylor said. In NPL2 news Langwarrin last week announced the signings of striker George Howard from Hume City and winger Delarno Pharoe from Box Hill United. Howard, 23, has been on the books of Eastern Lions, Box Hill United, Melbourne Victory, APIA Leichhardt and South Melbourne. “George fits the profile of the type of player we were interested in. Even though he has his career ahead of him he’s been in the system for a while and worked under people I know like Jean Paul (de Marigny),” Langy gaffer Scott Miller said. Pharoe played for Springvale White Eagles in 2018. “I watched Delarno at the back end of last year and stayed in touch,” Miller added. “He’s similar to Jordan Templin in terms of a one-on-one dribbler and he’s quick and intelligent and takes things onboard really quickly.” In State 1 news Liam Baxter won’t be playing with Mornington next season. We reported two weeks ago that Baxter had agreed terms with Mornington and was hopeful of being granted permanent residency early next year. However the Scottish striker has since been offered a visa spot with NPL3 club Box Hill United and has accepted. In State 4 news Seaford United has identified the players it wants to sign for next season and will start approaching them and arranging interviews this week. The club refused to release the names of any targets and confirmed that it has not lost any players from last season’s senior squad. Seaford will not start pre-season training until mid-January.
