Manager Stuart Davis-Meehan paid tribute to the “hard-working volunteers who make the program happen” and, in particular, volunteer coordinators Shelley Dewerson-Bogue and Kay Crellin. “Every Thursday our amazing volunteers unload the Second Bite truck, sort and display the food, and ensure a comfortable free shopping experience for all those accessing the service,”

Mr Davis-Meehan said. Produce is supplied by SecondBite, which collects food that would have gone to waste and offers it free of charge through 841 programs across the country: one being the community information and support centre’s fresh food program. A recent national survey by Edith Cowan University found that 36 per cent of people had experienced “low

Weather a break for ‘emergency’ works Keith Platt keith@mpnews.com.au A BREAK in the weather last week allowed the start of “emergency works” to prevent further erosion of cliffs at Mt Martha Beach North. Heavy earthmoving equipment was driven up the beach from the foreshore car park near the Balcombe Creek Estuary to begin placing large rocks and installing a sand-filled geotextile tube to stop waves further damaging the base of the cliff. The Department of Environment, Land, Water and Planning (DELWP) estimates the $880,000 works could take six weeks. Long term options to prevent erosion of the cliffs and danger to the Esplanade will begin in the next month based on the results of the 2017 Water Technology Coastal Processes Study. The most expensive of the study’s options is costed out at $4 million. “We want to make sure that any works implemented to restore the beach will be effective, long-lasting and not result in adverse impacts at nearby locations,” DELWP land and built environment program manager, John Downs said. An earlier attempt to replace sand at Mt Martha North involved trucking in 12,000 cubic metres from Mt Martha South. However, the sand all but disappeared within a few years. The Mt Martha North Beach Users group says a rock groin built at the northern end of the beach would stop the sand erosion. “The emergency works will prevent

On the beach: Earthmoving equipment being driven along the once sandy Mt Martha Beach North to where heavy rocks and a sand-filled geotextile tube will be used as a temporary measure to prevent further erosion at the cliff base.

Embedded history: Aboriginal advisers will be on hand to ensure middens are protected during “emergency works” to protect cliffs at Mt Martha Beach North. The remains of other middens are exposed in cliffs at the adjoining Hawker Beach, although no action has been taken to prevent them tumbling onto the sand in into the sea.

high tides from further eroding the bottom of the cliff, and provide protection to the public from the collapsing cliff,” DELWP land and built environment program manager, John Downs said. He said the 150 cubic metres of sand needed for the tube would be “relocated” from north of the estuary. “The works will allow for the pub-

lic to safely access the beach once the sand begins to return after winter,” Mr Downs said. Waves have stripped most of the sand from the beach, revealing clay and rock. Most of the remaining sand is underneath the beach boxes, several of which are sagging on their stumps or leaning against neighbouring structures.

“The temporary works provide interim protection as DELWP plans for the long-term safety and stability of the cliff face,” Mr Downs said. “During the works a Bunurong Land Council heritage adviser will be onsite to ensure the Aboriginal middens either side of the works area are protected at all times.”

Mr Downs said the existing rock revetment at the northern end of the beach would be extended early next year. “Port Phillip has dynamic beaches with sand moving around seasonally. The foreshore at Mt Martha North, like many parts of the Victorian coast, is a naturally eroding coastline, with net sand loss to southern beaches.”

Digging deep to aid drought-hit farmers A MORNINGTON trader is so moved by the plight of droughtstricken farmers that she is donating this month’s profits to help them. Trudy Lennon-Bowers, who runs Tru Opportunity Op Shop, in Diane Street, said she normally gives profits to charities nominated by those who donate goods. “I have been so moved by the plight of the Aussie farmers – who are the backbone of this nation and are doing it extremely tough with seemingly no help – that I felt compelled to make an exception to how we normally donate,” she said. “We therefore decided to donate all profits from August to Australian farmers’ drought relief agencies in an effort to help, even in some small way. We just need people through the door to make them some money.” Ms Lennon-Bowers’ stand coincides with a similar push by the Red Cross which has launched an appeal to help farmers and communities in drought-affected regions. Money raised through the organisation’s August disaster relief and recovery appeal will be distributed throughout the most severely droughtaffected areas – especially in New South Wales. “It’s time for everyone to rally together and show their support for drought-affected farmers and farming communities who are doing it tough,” Red Cross CEO Judy Slatyer said. “We know this is a difficult time for farmers, their families and their communities across the country and we see first-hand how hard it is for people with ongoing financial and social responsibilities.

Plan for Capel Sound solar farm A PROPOSED solar farm in Capel Sound will be part of Mornington Peninsula Shire’s efforts to “address climate change and move towards a clean energy future”. The shire is seeking expressions of interest from parties wishing to lease the 10 hectare site in Truemans Road for a five megawatt solar farm. The site is in a public park recreation zone. The mayor Cr Bryan Payne said the shire was committed to demonstrating its efforts in climate change “mitigation and adaptation”. “It’s early days for this project but we’re optimistic it could be a great initiative for the peninsula and will add significant community value to our efforts to lead the way in tackling the climate change challenge.” Cr Simon Brooks said the community would benefit from a low carbon emissions future. “We are moving towards increased renewable energy capability and smarter, more energy-efficient solutions for meeting the peninsula’s energy needs,” he said. A selection process and expressions of interest campaign will demonstrate community and commercial benefits and transparency in decision making, Cr Frank Martin said. Cr Antonella Celi said electricity generated from the farm would flow into the nearby substation to offset the shire’s electricity use. Meanwhile, council will undertake an environmental impact assessment to ensure suitability of the site and considerations for the preparation and design of the 5MW solar farm. EOI submissions opened last Saturday (28 July) and close Monday 8 October.

NEWS DESK THE St Vincent de Paul Society - an international organisation of the Catholic Church - was formed to help the poor in Paris, France in 1833. Unfortunately, as BARRY MORRIS discovered, the organisation’s services are needed as much in Frankston and on the Mornington Peninsula today as they were in the 1800s.

The desperate are struggling IT’S curious what can happen when we reach out to help a fellow human being in need. Two St Vincent de Paul Society workers visited a woman in a freezing government-owned one-bedroom unit that she couldn’t afford to heat. On giving her some blankets, she took them in her arms and held them to her face. She enjoyed the soft luxury of the blankets, kissing and hugging them, and then burst into tears. “It broke my heart,” one of the Vinnies workers, Herbert Portanier, said. Mr Portanier migrated to Australia in 1979 and, after arriving in Melbourne, went on to become a successful businessman. He founded his own freight company, in a tough, competitive industry. When he retired at 61, he joined the St Vincent de Paul Society so that he could give back to his local community. His managerial skills saw him become president of the Southern Central Council region which encompasses Berwick, Dandenong, Hampton, Mentone, Frankston and the Mornington Peninsula. This “no-nonsense” former businessman can tell many similar stories

about people who are struggling. There were people like John, who had just arrived in Melbourne from the country and was living in a rooming house. It was a large house where all rooms had been divided into smaller ones to make up 10 single bedrooms and two double bedrooms. The business worked on the principle that the more tenants they could squeeze in, the bigger the profits. The lounge room was divided into three and the backyard porch was a makeshift TV room, with its acrylic glass roof making it icy cold in winter. The tenants shared two showers and two toilets. The weekly rent was $240 for a single and $380 for a double. For people like John, unable to afford a bond and with no references, housing options are limited. When Mr Portanier and John met, John was wearing thongs, a shirt two sizes too small, a pair of pants one size too big, held up by a worn out belt. On his trip from the country to the city, he had fallen asleep and his bag, with all his possessions, was stolen. A Vinnies shop provided him with food and clothes.

Rooming houses profit from THE poorest of the poor can end up living in rooming houses on the Mornington Peninsula and in Frankston. Many residents would be unaware of their existence. Owners of three or four-bedroom

houses can often get $500-$600 a week rent. But by dividing the house into 10 rooms, they end up with one house with 10 tenants, one kitchen, one bathroom and one shower. They can charge $220 a week a

person. Rent for a double room can be as high as $370 a week. This results in them receiving $2200 a week compared to $500-$600. “I have been to these rooming houses in the middle

the poor of winter and the landlord has cut off the central heating, as well as the gas, and it’s absolutely freezing,” St Vincent de Paul Society volunteer Herbert Portanier says. “I had a situation last winter where a woman was warming her hands warm over a sandwich maker.”

THE rising cost of living and inadequacy of welfare payments – particularly Newstart – are a concern for the St Vincent de Paul Society. Vinnies services are being stretched across the state, including the Mornington Peninsula, with people suffering week after week. In the past year, Vinnies in Victoria has seen a 40 per cent increase in requests for help. “In one month alone on the peninsula we make 800 visits,” Vinnies official Herbert Portanier said. “In total we are seeing about 2000 adults and children. “We are giving about $77,000 worth of food vouchers and assistance with furniture and rent. “This is month, after month, after month. “People just can’t cope any more. They are hungry. The most common request is for food vouchers, but they’re juggling multiple expenses – rent, utilities, education and more. “The problem will get bigger and bigger unless we say, ‘Right, we’re going to increase welfare assistance’. It can’t keep on going this way. “If a family owns a house, and they are pensioners, they will just manage to pay the bills. But if a single parent receives just over $380 a week in parenting payments, they simply couldn’t survive if they’re paying $350 a week in rent, even if you factor in the Family Tax Benefit. “There is a cry out there for help.” Mr Portanier is also concerned that St Vincent de Paul Society members are ageing, with an average age of 65. “Vinnies can always benefit from extra volunteers to help make an impact on the community,” he said.

Gas Import Jetty and Pipeline Project Drop-in information sessions At AGL we’re in the middle of planning a project that will source gas from domestic and international suppliers to supply customers in south-eastern Australia. With the existing Crib Point jetty having been identified as the preferred location for the project, a feasibility study is now underway. If this project goes ahead, liquefied natural gas (LNG) will be delivered by ship from interstate and overseas to a ship known as a Floating Storage and Regasification Unit (FSRU), moored at the existing Crib Point jetty. The FSRU can store LNG and convert it back into gas as required by the market. To deliver this gas into the domestic gas transmission network, the project also requires construction of a new underground pipeline between Crib Point and Pakenham that will pass through Hastings. To help share information and hear your feedback, we’re hosting project information sessions at five different locations in September. At these informal sessions, members of the community can stop by and speak with the AGL team, plus representatives from our partners in this project – including: •

APA – Pipeline partner

Jacobs and CEE – Environmental advisors to AGL

Port of Hastings Development Authority

Harbour Master

Australian Maritime Safety Authority

DNV-GL – International accredited register and shipping classification society

These experts can help cover off and speak to you about: •

Environmental technical reports for the FSRU and pipeline

Ship classification, LNG safety, and the risk assessment process

Shipping and mooring arrangements within Western Port

Australian regulation of shipping

The pipeline route including detailed assessments of route options and construction impacts

Tenants sign up for old Masters’ site A COLES supermarket, Goodlife health club and a Supercheap Auto outlet are lead tenants in the revamped former Masters Home Improvement depot, Mornington. Home Consortium, the company developing the Mornington-Tyabb Road site, has circulated a leasing brochure showing a Woolworths supermarket fronting the site opposite Dunns Road. A 3700 square metre Coles supermarket, with nearby Liquorland outlet, is on page two of the brochure which describes the new site as a “daily needs and lifestyle centre”.

Drop in to learn about Rye foreshore projects Mornington Peninsula Shire is inviting residents to pop in to learn more about projects being undertaken in Rye, including the Rye Boat Ramp upgrade, Rye Foreshore improvement works and the Rye sand renourishment works. Rye Boat Ramp upgrade The upgrade, due to commence in August 2018, includes reconstruction of the three existing boat ramps and an additional ramp, a new jetty and realignment of the reversing lanes.

Event details

Rye Foreshore improvement works Works include: wheelchair accessible boardwalk construction, development of paved plaza areas with lookout and seating, construction of raingardens to reduce stormwater runoff, removal of storm-water outfall to the east of the pier and decorative lighting. Rye sand renourishment works and groyne construction This project is being undertaken by the Department of Environment, Land, Water and Planning (DELWP) to prevent excess sand being blown off the beach and into the foreshore reserve and playground.

The brochure shows the remaining vacancies are a 2109 square metre site, a 973 square metre site and two 500 square metre sites. Mornington Chamber of Commerce is said to be concerned that a clutch of small retail tenancies – at around 90 square metres – will fill the front of the building which was originally Masters’ customer service area. These shops – listed as Beans and Bites, sushi takeaway, Avy Hair and Nails and two as-yet-unlet sites – were not part of the original planning application approved by Mornington Peninsula Shire Council late last year.

The chamber had originally been told the smallest tenancy would be 500 square metres – far bigger than the smaller shops being shown on the brochure. The chamber is concerned the shops will compete with those run by its members in Main Street, on the other side of Nepean Highway. The revamped centre is expected to open in February and not Christmas as originally planned. Home Consortium and leasing agents Colliers International were contacted for comment. Stephen Taylor

Cold water concerns for whale calf

Labor ‘throwing mud’, says Liberal MP Dixon

Keith Platt keith@mpnews.com.au WHALE researchers are hoping a humpback whale calf born off Cape Woolamai, Phillip Island will be able to reach warmer waters. It is the youngest ever humpback spotted in Victorian waters and only the third calf recorded. David Donnelly of the Hastingsbased Dolphin Research Institute said the calf, less than four metres long, was about two days old when first spotted swimming alongside its 16 metre long mother. “It’s possible that our cold waters could be dangerous for the calf,” Mr Donnelly said. “Humpback whales are usually born and spend their first months in warmer waters off northern New South Wales and Queensland, unlike southern right whales that normally give berth in Victoria’s relatively cold waters.” The calf’s prominent foetal folds would “fade as the calf matures”. “The mother was one of the largest humpback whales the DRI team have ever observed … Hopefully her size and condition indicate an experienced mother and she will be able to slowly move her calf to warmer waters before they return to the Antarctic feeding grounds in the coming summer,” Mr Donnelly said. He said the mother whale “needs to be girthy to have the reserves to supply her calf with the many hundreds of litres of milk every day during the 10-11 months until the calf is

weaned”. Mr Donnelly said the DRI spent no more than 10 minutes near the whales “to minimise interference at this stage of the calf’s life”. “This is a very unusual event and an extremely important to addition to the Two Bays Whale Project’s Victorian database, which so far this season has recorded record numbers of humpback whales off Victoria’s central

coast,” he said. DRI executive director Jeff Weir said humpback whales - on “the edge of extinction during the industrial whaling era” – had made an “impressive comeback” with 33,000 expected this year along the eastern Australian coast. “Unfortunately, the news is not so good for the southern right whale, with their south-eastern numbers

estimated to be only 250 to 300 individuals, with no noticeable increase in their population size,” he said. Whale watching sites recommended by the DRI include Port Phillip Heads, and Cape Schanck as well as The Nobbies, Pyramid Rock and Cape Woolamai on Phillip Island.

NEPEAN MP Martin Dixon has scoffed at claims by deputy premier James Merlino that he was among 18 state Liberal Party MPs to break parliamentary rules by using electorate staff for political campaigning during business hours. Mr Merlino’s allegations come after Victoria Police last week raided the offices of state Labor MPs in the socalled “Red Shirts Affair” in relation to the actions of their staff before the 2014 state election. Fallout from the affair rocked the state Labor government and sent ministers into hiding last week. Mr Merlino said he had provided evidence to police that he alleges proves Liberal electorate staffers also did political campaigning for their MPs. He said this allowed the Liberal Party to “access taxpayer funded expenditure in the order of $2 million” for its election campaign. Mr Dixon said the minister was “throwing mud”. “This is a desperate stunt by a desperate premier (Daniel Andrews) with six ministers under police investigation,” Mr Dixon said. “With the fraud and extortion squad conducting dawn raids on 17 Labor people, the Andrews government are now throwing mud everywhere.” Mr Dixon will not contest this year’s November state election. His electorate office manager, Russell Joseph, has been preselected as the Liberals’ Nepean candidate. Stephen Taylor

Sports club’s ‘win’ on rent Keith Platt keith@mpnews.com.au AFTER nearly two years of sometimes acrimonious debate, Mornington Peninsula Shire has increased the rent for land leased by the Hastings Cricket and Football Social Club in Marine Parade. However, the increase from $4000 a year to $15,000 initially, could have been $61,000 if the shire had adopted a higher recommended “commercial” figure. The club, which has 50 gaming machines, will be charged $15,000 (plus GST) a year in the first year of a its new 21-year lease, rising to $25,000

a year in three years and then paying three per cent increases for the following 18 years. The decision by council at its Tuesday 24 July meeting brings the rent in well below the $61,000 a year identified in a report commissioned by the shire from valuers Charter Keck Cramer. Much of the argument for the club to pay a substantial rent increase was based on the shire’s responsible gaming strategy which, among its goals and objectives, seeks to “ensure that venues operating gaming machines on shire owned land make a positive contribution to the community”. Figures released last week show $84 million was lost to gaming ma-

chines on the Mornington Peninsula between July 2017 and June this year. In neighbouring Frankston gamblers lost $64.6m. Figures released by the Victorian Commission for Gambling and Liquor Regulation put losses at the Hastings Cricket and Football Social Club at $3.278m. Losses at two other pokies venue in Hastings were the Western Port Hotel, were shown as $4.76m and the Kings Creek Hotel, $1.9m. In deciding on the $15,000 - $25,000 rent, councillors effectively rejected arguments put forward by property and strategy manager Yasmin Woods for the rent to start at $42,000 (plus GST),

Police patrol

climbing to $52,000 by the third year and then increasing by three per cent for each of the following 18 years. Ms Woods said the recommended starting rent of $42,000 a year included a subsidy based on the club providing benefits to the community. She said two consecutive annual increases of $5000 “is considered to be a fair and reasonable rental”. The shire’s responsible gaming strategy notes that “the presence of gaming machines changes the nature of operations of a community club. Gaming machines are a commercial activity that attracts new financial resources to the venue, resources that are not available to clubs without gaming

machines”. The policy continues: “The organisation operating gaming machines on shire owned or managed property should pay a fair rent for the property. This fair rent should be based on a commercial/market rent for the property discounted by the demonstrated social benefit by the organisation to the broad community.” The club’s previous 21-year $4000 a year lease expired on 31 December 2016. The club has a liquor licence (renewed annually) and its entitlement to have 50 machines is valid until 16 August 2022 and can be renewed for $1.47m. Its gaming licence is due in 2028.

Driver blows it on Peninsula Link SOMERVILLE Highway Patrol officers nabbed a driver allegedly speeding at more than 75km over the limit in Frankston, Wednesday 1 August. When intercepted the 39-year-old Carrum Downs man told police he was on his way to basketball. Asked why he was speeding he said: “I was just showing off.” Police clocked the Ford Territory at 175kph in a 100kph zone on Peninsula Link near Frankston-Dandenong Road at 8.30pm. The car exited at Thames Promenade and was found by police on the side of the road with a blown engine. The passengers were a 40-year-old Frankston North man and two boys aged 17 and 16. Leading Senior Constable Natalie Dean, of police media, said the driver was unlicensed and tested positive for methamphetamine. He was charged with reckless conduct endangering life, reckless conduct endangering serious injury, manner dangerous, speed dangerous and other speed and traffic-related offences and bailed to appear at Frankston Magistrates’ Court on 19 November. The unregistered car was impounded for 30 days at a cost of $1006.10.

Keep left not right A DRIVER pulled over for failing to keep left on Peninsula Link, 7pm, Thursday 26 July, got a rude shock when he was handed a $161 infringement notice and lost two demerit points. Somerville Highway Patrol police said they watched the car being driven at 95kph for three kilometres in the right-hand lane while other cars passed on its left.

Hungry drink-driver the bikes’ noise, possible damage to the environment and sometimes the riders (pictured) are considered a danger to other road users. A tragic example of what can happen as a result of this illegal behaviour occurred at the Carrum Downs shopping centre. (“Hit-run mum death charges” The News 28/9/2015). “Given the places these bikes can access that police vehicles can’t, and the tendency of the riders not to obey police directions to stop and thereby create more dangerous situations, the issue is a difficult one to police,” Sergeant Peter Martin said. Police say they are “committed to dealing with this issue as best we can” and welcome public assistance. Anyone knowing the identities of those riding unregistered motorcycles, or their address, should contact Crime Stoppers 1800 333 000 or online at crimestoppersvic.com.au

Arrests after robbery FOUR men were arrested following a robbery in Frankston early Friday 3 August. The men approached a Seaford man, 26, on Nepean Highway just after 2am. One allegedly demanded the victim hand over money. The victim handed over a small amount before he was driven to an ATM in Frankston to withdraw more money. The offenders then followed the man to his home to steal more cash. While there a relative called police who arrived and arrested them. Two Deer Park men, aged 17 and 18, a 19-year-old Heidelberg man and a 21-year-old Kensington man, have been charged with robbery and false imprisonment. The 18-year-old, who has also been charged with possessing a drug of dependence, and the 21-year-old, have been bailed to appear at Frankston Magistrates’ Court

A DRIVER out to get some Chinese takeaway wrote off his car in Towerhill Road, Frankston South, and then allegedly blew more than four times the legal limit when breath-tested at Frankston police station. Somerville Highway Patrol police drove to Frankston South, 8.40pm, Wednesday 25 July, after receiving reports of a car backing out of a driveway and hitting a wall. By the time they got there the car had gone. Five minutes later they were called to Towerhill Road where the same car had crashed into a pole. The car was a write-off, but the driver, 55, of Frankston South, was not injured. After the breath test the man’s licence was suspended and he will appear at Frankston Magistrates’ Court on drink-driving charges. He told police he had been drinking wine and had gone out for takeaway. Police said drug driving was becoming prevalent but that drink driv-

ing remained a problem with often tragic outcomes.

is rusted on MORNINGTON steel artist Joe Taranto has been honoured by his peers by being asked to display his works at an exhibition run by the Association of Sculptors of Victoria. Taranto has been designing and building sculptures, primarily with Australian corten steel, to create metal art. This type of steel has a rusted, weathered appearance developed to eliminate the need for painting. For the event, Taranto is creating two kinetic sculptures – Fossil and Dancing Tulips – that move in the wind. Fossil is symbolic of an ammonite, an ancient creature with a ribbed spiral-form shell. At the end is a tentacled animal, like a squid. Dancing Tulips harnesses the delicate movement of three tulips dancing between and around each other in a gentle breeze. Taranto’s sculptures are among 120 on display in the foyer at 600 Bourke Street, Melbourne, 9am-5.30pm weekdays, until 24 August. Most of the works are for sale, with the sculptors happy to talk about them. Taranto will be on hand 9am-1pm, Monday 20 August.

MCG event unites cancer victims, survivors Stephen Taylor steve@mpnews.com.au UNDERSTANDABLY, nurse Jo Lovelock was “shocked, distressed and overwhelmed” by her breast cancer diagnosis in 2003. But she was certainly not defeated. The Mt Martha resident battled through with the help of family and friends who “ran around after the children, fed us through my chemotherapy, assisted us with driving to and from chemotherapy and radiotherapy – and even cleaned my house”. During the early days, Ms Lovelock said she received excellent medical treatment but found that there was no psycho-social support on the Mornington Peninsula. “Our surgeon got a small group of us under-45s together and we met in each other’s homes to compare notes,” she said. “We sat around sharing stories and love with each other and, although it was beneficial, that was it.” This led her to approach The Bays Hospital which offered space for a support group affiliated with the Cancer Council and Breast Cancer Network Australia. The volunteers received training and by 2014, the afternoon group had 12-25 members and the evening group from four to 10. “Breast cancer has changed my life and my career path as I now work as a breast care nurse,” she said. “It has given me the opportunity to meet some amazing people; to be supported and support others, including volunteering opportunities locally,

NEWS DESK Airfield the topic TYABB Airfield Community Reference Group focused on priority actions identified in the Tyabb Airfield Precinct Plan 2017 when it met for the first time in June. Its members include Tyabb and District Ratepayers Group’s Dr Martin Cranmer and Katrina Chalke; Peninsula Aero Club’s Jack Vevers, Peter Bernardi, Judy Pay (also representing aircraft businesses), and Stewart Bracken (Tyabb Airfield hangar owners); Captain Dick Cox (residents/community groups), Len Minty and Ben Hogan (Tyabb community), Stuart Benton (nearby businesses, particularly outside the airfield), Bruce Turner (independent chair), and Mornington Peninsula Shire’s manager – strategic projects Allan Cowley. Discussions concerned the improved information available to the community about the airfield and its operations, an airfield masterplan being compiled by Peninsula Aero Club, an aircraft noise management plan, and a potential planning permit application for widening the sealed section of the north-south runway. The meeting was told a noise assessment, including a noise exposure forecast, would be financed by Mornington Peninsula Shire in conjunction with the aero club. The meeting reviewed a one-page summary: Issues, Opportunities and Aspirations, which had been compiled by the independent chair Bruce Turner.

Jobs growth as steel exports surge BLUESCOPE is exporting tens of thousands of tonnes of steel to the United States from its Western Port base in a growth surge the company says has helped it create 150 jobs over the past year. Last week 10,000 tonnes of steel was shipped from Hastings to the West Coast port of Longbeach – later to be galvanised or pre-painted for various applications, such as building, general manufacturing or car making. BlueScope is able to sell to the US through its Steelscope joint venture because Australia

has, so far, escaped tariffs imposed on other countries’ steel exports by US President Donald Trump. Western Port plant manager Mike Hussey said BlueScope was exporting about 200,000 tonnes a year – a “significant increase” on previous years. “There’s been a concerted effort by the company to find overseas markets in the wake of the shutdown of the car making industry here,” he said. “We are always on the lookout for alternative

markets through our sales and marketing departments, although the domestic market is still our main focus.” Industry and employment minister Ben Carroll said the jobs’ increase highlighted the strength of the state’s steel manufacturing industry. He visited the Western Port plant which produces coated and painted steel products, including Colorbond steel. BlueScope said the state government was using Australian-made steel in major road and rail infrastructure projects.

Stephen Taylor steve@mpnews.com.au SORRENTO Sea Scouts leader Christopher Clark believes Scouting teaches young people self-control, to look after their friends, and respect for others – all qualities valuable in society. The Rye resident was speaking after being awarded the prestigious Silver Koala award by the GovernorGeneral and Chief Scout of Australia, Sir Peter Cosgrove AK MC, on World Scout Day 1 August. The Silver Koala award is for distinguished service over 14-16 years. Mr Clark has spent most of his life at the Sorrento troop, joining the Cubs as an eight year old and progressing through the ranks to become a Scout, Venturer and now leader. His children are following in his footsteps. “The Sea Scouts also teaches young people practical skills, such as knot tying, boating and seamanship, that they probably wouldn’t learn elsewhere,” he said. “Whatever young people put into it, they will get out of it.” Mr Clark, who was awarded the Silver Wattle award five years ago, said the Sorrento Sea Scouts was a strong club with 20 Cubs, 20 Scouts, eight Venturers and 10-15 Rovers, with the youngsters drawn from southern peninsula primary schools. A Silver Wattle award for outstanding service over 10-12 years was presented to Frankston District Joey Scouts leader Lynette Swaine, of Frankston South. Ms Swaine, who is in charge of all Joey activities and oversees the work of other leaders in her district, was a Girl Guide and Ranger before joining

the 1st Frankston troop when her son and daughter became Cubs and Joeys. “Young people come from all different backgrounds and situations and Scouting teaches them to work together, gives them leadership experience and instils good character,” she said. “I love it for what the children get out of it. I see them grow and develop from shy and timid youngsters to confident young people.” Special Service Awards went to Mari Albiston, provisional group leader, 1st Mornington; John Bennett, adult helper, 1st Balnarring; Cory Bixler, provisional assistant Scout leader, 1st Mornington; Kathleen Hudson, group chairman, 1st Balnarring; Dale

sioner, Frankston District and Sandra Sunkel-lozell, district leader – Scouts, Frankston District. Scouts Victoria chief commissioner Brendan Watson said adults in Scouting gave 1.7 million hours each year to “helping young people grow up to achieve their best”. “For most, their contribution is supporting weekly meetings at the local Scout hall, and occasional weekends away, such as camping, hiking, or learning new skills, such as canoeing and rock climbing,” Mr Watson said. “At the same time, they are developing our future leaders.”

In the running for athletics track RUNNERS from all over the Mornington Peninsula are set for a devil of a time at the 44th Devilbend Fun Run and Walk, Sunday 12 August. Mornington Peninsula Athletic Club is organising the fun run at the Devilbend Natural Features Reserve and also nearby rural dirt roads. Runners and walkers will challenge themselves over 5km, 10km or the 21.1km half marathon, with a special “Magic mile” event being run for children. Money raised from the event will go towards equipment for the new Mornington athletics track, Civic Reserve. The 400-metre all-weather track will be a first for the peninsula. Mornington Little Athletics Centre and Mornington Peninsula Athletic Club lobbied for the $6.25 million project. A $3 million grant came from the federal government and $3.25 million from Mornington Peninsula Shire. The building of the track and four full-sized soccer pitches will begin this month and is expected to be completed next year. Devilbend race director Craig Mahony said this year’s run was “crucial” in raising money for the club, which will need to buy equipment, such as hurdles and high jump mats. “We’re really excited to have the local community come down to take part in the day and, of course, raise some funds for the club and the new athletics track – which is a gamechanger for our club,” he said. Online entries for the Devilbend Fun Run and Walk close midnight, Thursday 9 August, at devilbend.com

Red moon a sight to behold MARS sparkled down on Earth last Friday afternoon and evening (27 July) and a crowd of eager sightseers gathered at Olivers Hill to see the red planet in the sky during a lunar eclipse. Frankston resident Danny Makepiece and daughter Mia were among the sky watchers at Olivers Hill who watched a “blood moon” lunar eclipse on the night. “We got a cracking view, it was amazing,” Mr Makepiece said. “It was a nice atmosphere. We got a good spot and let a few people look through the telescope.” The celestial show began at about 4.25pm and lasted into the early hours of the next morning. Even those without a telescope could see Mars shining in the night sky. Mr Makepiece encouraged people to keep watching the skies since planets in the solar system are currently in “irregular orbit” and the likes of Mercury, Venus, Jupiter and Saturn are sometimes visible this month. Neil Walker Hill with a view: Danny Makepiece, above left, and daughter Mia were among the crowd that gathered at Olivers Hill to watch the blood moon lunar eclipse and see the planet Mars visible in the night sky.

Australians tapped out when it comes to cash-only businesses NEW research shows that most Australians have negative views of cash-only businesses, with consumers describing them as ‘inconvenient’, and saying it makes them wonder if the business is honest. Detailed research by Colmar Brunton, commissioned by the Australian Taxation Office (ATO), revealed that nearly half of Australians surveyed feel inconvenienced when they don’t have the option to pay electronically. Assistant Commissioner Matthew Bambrick said the research suggests cash-only businesses may be missing out. “The real cost of cash to business seems to be twofold. Consumers are twice as likely to associate ‘cash only’ as negative rather than positive. While the majority of businesses are run by honest Australians who want to do the right thing, being cash-only may have a direct impact on reputation,” Mr Bambrick said. “Secondly, time is money for business. Tapand-go payments cost an average of nine cents less than cash payments, and are nearly twice as fast. This research suggests cash-only businesses take a hit to their bottom line by not offering electronic payment.” Two thirds of respondents believed that cashonly small businesses are likely to be paying less tax than they should, regardless of whether this is true. The report also revealed that over 40% of cash-only small business owners have never investigated electronic payment systems before. “While cash is legal tender and we know that some businesses may be used to dealing only in cash, this research suggests that business owners may want to think about the benefits electronic payments can bring and consider what might work best for them,” Mr Bambrick said.

On the other end of the spectrum, businesses that only accept electronic payments cited efficiency, better record keeping and security as the top benefits of not operating in cash. “As well as the benefits to reputation and potential cost savings, electronic payment methods make it easier for businesses to keep good records and get their tax and super obligations right,” Mr Bambrick said. “Business owners who don’t declare their income correctly may not be able to identify their true earnings, and may have difficulty obtaining lines of credit. They also won’t get an accurate result against the ATO’s small business benchmarks, which are useful to help businesses compare themselves against their competitors and similar businesses in their industry.” For more information, visit ato.gov.au/electronicpayments

AS-NEW marina living doesn’t get much better than this architecturally-designed double storey home in the burgeoning Martha Cove precinct. There is a fantastic amount of offstreet parking with a single carport leading into a double garage which in turn has a single roller door opening through to the backyard, where a long stretch of aggregate paving will comfortably take a trailer. A downstairs living area opens out to the neat backyard and moving upstairs is the spacious and light-filled open plan zone incorporating a lounge and dining space plus a modern kitchen with stone bench tops and a wall oven. The living zone has a gas log-effect heater and opens out to an undercover deck which affords a view across the marina.n

Hospitality at its best WE have all heard the expression “hospital food” and more often than not, it is not complimentary. At St John of God Frankston Rehabilitation Hospital, they pride themselves on their catering services and believe eating well and enjoying high quality food is an important part of the healing process for their rehabilitation patients. All food is prepared and cooked onsite with fresh produce delivered daily to ensure all meals are of the highest quality. The head Chef and Dietitians collaborate to provide menu options that are not only delicious but also cater for patients individual preferences such as vegetarian and gluten free as well as special diets for patients with specific needs, e.g. soft and bite sized or smooth puree. The menu offers a wide variety of foods that patients can select on a daily basis. Onsite Dietitians can provide assistance with menu selections as required. The Catering department comprises a team of 20 caregivers, each of whom take pride in the preparation, cooking, delivery of meals and overall patient experience. Patients are given the opportunity to provide feedback about the menu. The most recent survey showed 94.5% of patients rated the quality of the food as being either excellent or very good. Here are a few comments from patients: • “Fantastic variety. Kitchen staff

exceptionally helpful”. • “Nothing was any trouble, if you needed something it was provided with a smile”. • “All food is generally very good. All kitchen staff should be congratulated for their kindness and generosity”. • “Been in a few hospitals in my life but this is No. 1 for catering care. All excellent”. The hospital recently completed a $9.7million refurbishment, which included the addition of their new café – Café La Ventana (Ventana is Spanish for window). The café is perfectly located in the main foyer and provides a relaxing ambient space for patients, relatives and visitors to enjoy. All are welcome and the friendly Baristas are only too willing to make you a coffee or tea and assist you with choosing from the wide variety of hot food, sandwiches and daily cake/ slice choices.

Questions unanswered as gas jetty works proceed The recent AGL/APA meetings at Balnarring, Crib Point and Hastings were well attended, although company representatives still couldn’t answer many of the questions about the proposed LNG processing facility. How can works be underway on Crib Point jetty to bring it up to specifications for the 17-storey tall gas treatment plant and connecting pipeline to Pakenham, when the proposal hasn’t even been approved? The enormous list of works is includes removing large areas of vegetation and will stir up polluted sediments into the water around the jetty. The approvals from the Department of Environment, Land, Water and Planning (DELWP) to Port of Hastings to carry out this work are the kind you’d normally expect a company like AGL to obtain in its own right. This gives the appearance that the port is being used as a front to fast track the project. The Victorian government announced months ago that it intends to “streamline approvals processes” and for all its talk of sustainability and green wedge credentials Mornington Peninsula Shire Council has remained silent. The endangered coastal salt marsh surrounding the jetty is home to threatened and endangered marine life, plants and animals. Because of its rarity and significance to migratory birds, it is listed as a protected Ramsar wetland. Any project that might impact its character must be assessed under the federal Environment Protection Biodiversity and Conservation Act, but there has been no assessment. This internationally listed area of environmental significance is an irreplaceable natural resource that belongs to us all. If state and federal laws designed to protect our few remaining ecosystems are incapable of defending them from the tactics of big industry, what can be done to stop these precious places being degraded by the immense pressure of inappropriate development? Contact planning minister Richard Wynne 94158901 or richard. wynne@parliament.vic.gov.au Julia Stockigt, Bittern

Poster vandals It’s a sad thing when vested interests are stooping to standover tactics against the justified concerns of the Mornington Peninsula community. Posters and signs put up around by concerned citizens have been destroyed and if this vandalism is in some way connected to plans to import gas through Crib Point it’s a very worrying development for democracy in Victoria. Is it a sign that the backers of the project are getting rattled by the hostile reception they receive at the “community information sessions”? The farcical Balnarring and Crib Point meetings just reinforced the community’s mistrust of AGL’s uninformative meetings. Any questions that rattle the panel are somewhat taken on “notice” and just forgotten about, or glossed over. Meanwhile, construction around the Crib Point pier and onshore proposed infrastructure sites

have started even though AGL has not submitted its plans to the state government. Their justification is “we have nothing to do with the work on the pier or the needed dredging around the heavy metal contaminated seabed” and “onshore works have a permit”. To anyone watching this travesty, it seems AGL fis very sure that all this community consultation business will fall on deaf ears up in Spring Street when the decision is made by a government that should be in caretaker mode, considering the damming reports of the Ombudsman’s office and resulting investigations of several ministers for wrong doing during the last state election. I get the feeling AGL is in a great hurry to get this travesty approved before the next state election so their fixed timelines are not disrupted. We will see very soon how wrong or right I am when the government will decide for or against a full environmental effects study (EES) for this project, including the proposed 60 kilometre pipeline. Rupert Steiner, Balnarring

Electrify Mornington I just cannot see any sense at all in electrifying the rail line from Frankston just to Baxter and having to acquire priceless green wedge land for a rail terminus, train stabling, maintenance and of course lots of all day car parking (“Land lost in Baxter line plan” The News 31/7/18). Hastings MP Neale Burgess says that, at a cost of $2 billion, the line will one day extend to Stony Point and meet the French Island ferry. I think that none of this will happen post election. Obviously, the population on the Mornington side of the peninsula is vastly more than on the Western Port side. The need for an electric rail link from Mornington to Melbourne, via Baxter and Frankston, is much greater and will attract more passengers. We already have the existing preserved rail line terminating at Yuilles Road, Mornington, with a great many acres of freely available, unused, dirt cheap land available for all of the rail facilities, a bus interchange, acres of car parking space. The value of the plentiful, cheap land at Mornington, offset against the proposed land acquisition and disruptions at Baxter, would go a long way toward that $2 billion. Win. Win. Win.

Libs’ money bombs Well, well, well, $5million from [Flinders MP] Greg Hunt and the boys for the Rosebud pool. The Turnbull government’s decision to award a German company the $5.2 billion contract to build hundreds of new military vehicles in Queensland at the expense of BAE systems (Victoria jobs at the former Holden plant). Queensland is pivotal state for him in next election and after the dismal results in super Saturday byelection he better do more

than pork barrel. It looks like the timing on these money bombs was ill conceived as they may well be forgotten when the next election is called (you can bet it will not be soon as Liberals have lots to do). Maybe they can figure out some more scare campaigns. Can’t use boats any more and [there are] more people killed by golf balls than terrorists in Australia. Victorians will soon become aware that these black Sudanese “gangs” (they don’t even meet the criteria to be a gang) are being maligned (without any facts) with Liberal scare tactics. Top offenders are Australians, of course. The lesson to be learned from this is that if we had elections every year something would get done, seeing as they only move off feeding at the through during elections. Then, maybe, they would have to listen to us and give us what we want rather than play the standard political con game every four years. They might have to actually address such things as poverty, mental health and income inequity. But, in the meantime, keep the money bombs coming. Joe Lenzo, Safety Beach

The big jet ski People of my vintage who chose the long family holiday drive to the once fabulous Gold Coast would invariably stop at the iconic big banana for a well earned break while the ankle biters jumped for joy exploring the monolithic big yellow thing. It’s now the fashion to have some sort of artistic (?) object to attract visitors. We here in Rye have our majestic, though dated, dolphin. I suggest, in view of the popularity from our local councillors, we retire the current art object with the magnificent jet ski. Cliff Ellen, Rye

Free to leave For the life of me I can’t work out why John Cain has, for so long, lived in and, horror of horrors, continues to live in, such a racist country as Australia (“Nationalised racism” Letters 30/7/18). Surely if Mr Cain is so disenchanted with this country because of its awful racism, he could

easily find somewhere to live which is less so. Michael Long, Frankston

Fishing is cruel The war on plastic straws seems to be going well, with McDonald’s announcing it will phase them out by 2020. But, if you are concerned with keeping animals in the ocean safe, don’t just look to your drinking straw—look to your dinner plate. In fact, eating fish does far more harm to our oceans than sipping your drink through a straw ever will. Abandoned, lost or discarded fishing gear — otherwise known as “ghost gear” — is a problem that spells catastrophe for marine life. At least 640,000 tonnes of ghost gear are added to our oceans every year, killing and mutilating millions of marine animals— including endangered whales, seals and turtles. Swallowing plastic remnants from ghost gear leads to malnutrition, digestive blockages and death. In the Pacific Ocean, there is a floating patch of garbage twice the size of France and weighing roughly 88,000 tonnes. While this enormous area, like our oceans at large, is full of plastic, scientists estimate that 46 percent of the mass of the garbage patch comes from fishing nets alone. And other types of fishing gear account for much of the rest. So, while many people are stocking up on cloth shopping bags and signing petitions to ban single-use plastic straws to save the oceans, those who fish (or eat fish) need to re-examine their personal choices too. It’s simple: Less fishing means less fishing gear—abandoned or otherwise. Clearly, fishing is hazardous to the environment. But it’s also horrifically cruel. Commercial fishing kills hundreds of billions of animals worldwide every year—far more than any other industry. Fish are intelligent, complex animals but, when caught, they are impaled, crushed, suffocated, or cut open and gutted, all while conscious. You can’t eat fish and call yourself an environmentalist.

Labor comes to Baxter line party Neil Walker neil@mpnews.com.au THE electrification of the extension of the Frankston line to Baxter now has bipartisan support from both the Liberal and Labor parties. Federal Labor shadow transport spokesman Anthony Albanese visited Langwarrin’s McClelland Gallery last Tuesday (31 July) for a Committee for Greater Frankston “roundtable lunch” and used the occasion to announce a Shorten government will “move quickly to deliver the muchneeded Frankston to Baxter rail upgrade”. The federal opposition’s pledge to


Mornington News

back the rail duplication and electrification from Frankston to Baxter comes two weeks after Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull announced the Liberal National Coalition federal government’s promise to provide $225 million to build the rail extension. Liberal state opposition leader Matthew Guy also promised that the state Liberal National Coalition, if elected in November, will direct $225 million to the project. Mr Albanese’s announcement last week leaves the Labor state government as the sole hold outs in not yet committing to build the rail extension. The state government is conduct-

7 August 2018

ing a business case study into the project’s feasibility, paid for by $3 million in federal funding. “Labor has advocated for the electrification and duplication of the Stony Point Line to Baxter to improve train services for commuters across Dunkley and on the peninsula,” Mr Albanese said at last week’s roundtable meeting. “And that’s because we know the benefits of this project speak for themselves — better services, greater accessibility to public transport, reduced travel times, and more parking but most important of all, ensuring commuters get home earlier so they can spend more time with their families.”

Committee for Greater Frankston CEO Ginevra Hosking thanked Mr Albanese and federal Labor Dunkley candidate Peta Murphy for backing an expansion the region’s public rail network. “Having both federal and state major political parties on board is needed to make this project happen quickly. Now we call on the Andrews Labor state government to provide funding for the rail extension,” Ms Hosking said. Mornington Peninsula Shire councillors will meet their counterparts from Frankston Council next week at a “working dinner” to chew over their differences in policy over the electrification of the Frankston line to Baxter. The dinner, to be held on Wednesday

8 August at Frankston Football Club, comes after shire councillors in May called on the federal and state governments to recognise the shire “as a major stakeholder”, since talks have mostly been conducted between politicians and Frankston Council. The shire said Baxter — which lies within its municipal boundary – would be an unsuitable terminus for the electric train service and wants the line doubled up and electrified to Hastings. State Hastings Liberal MP Neale Hastings said the electrification to Hastings would be a “stage two” process. There is no indication of when any such second stage would begin to be built.

Editor “Standard” - Dear Sir.- Yesterday a case containing 150 tins of cigarettes from the Overseas Club, London, arrived for distribution among my company. The post cards attatched to the tins show that about 100 of them were subscribed by the Mornington Branch of the Southern Cross Tobacco Fund. On behalf of the officers N.C.O’s and men of C Company, I wish to express our appreciation of the generosity and patriotism of the citizens of Mornington who suscribed for these pifs. Lately we have been kept rather busy in the “forward area” and consequently have not been able to keep in close touch with the canteens. This, of course, hampered somewhat our cigarette supply but now it is replenished. I have signed the acknowledging cards with my signture, and this will signify to the donors the unit that received their gift.

The work of making good the hill opposite Mr S. Oliver’s property was listed on the programme, and some fine work was done to this very bad spot. Those assisting included Cr Oates, Messrs Goodwin senr., S. Oliver, W. H. Prosser, S. Lawrey, A Bailey, A. Hague, P. Roadley, F. S. Bell and F. H. Wells. During the afternoon Mrs S. Oliver kindly provided refreshments, and after justice had been done to this part of the programme, work was resumed and continued until 5.30pm. On Saturday, July 27th, another Bee was held. The work for that afternoon was the building of a footbridge over the drain alongside Mr Goodwin’s residence. The old bridge was too narrow and too low and during the winter months was half its time under water. Both ends of the bridge had to be filled up, which took about 50 yards of filling. The workers went in two gangs, one lot bridge building, and the other lot on the shovels, which kept the two drays busy, and after five hours of solid toil, that portion of the work was completed. There were present Cr Oates, Messrs Goodwin, S. Oliver, F. S. Bell, T. Lawrey, W. H. Prosser, J. Brant, A. Hague, B. Scarborough, F. H Wells. At 3 o’clock Mrs Goodwin senr, and Mrs Bell arrived with afternoon tea. The best thanks of the workers are extended to the ladies who have provided afternoon teas since the work started. Working Bees will be held every Saturday afternoon till the work is completed. *** ABOUT another - make it pass, before you speak, three gates of gold, three narrow gates first, “Is it true ?” Then “Is it needful ?” - in your mind give truthful answer; and the next, if you are tempted to reveal a tale to you someone has told, is last and narrowest, “Is it kind ?” and if, to reach your lips at last, it passes through these gateways three then you may tell the tale, nor fear what the result of speech may be. *** CR Turner drew attention to a washaway on Hodgin’s Road, and moved that Engineers take steps to divert and procure. easement. - Cr Unthank, seconded. - Cr Hodgins thought the water should be cut off at the corner. He was opposed to putting in more culverts. Cr Turner said that cutting off the water at the corner was not enough. - Cr Watt moved as an amendment that the matter be left in hands of Engineer. Cr Hodgins seconded.- Carried. Cr Turner said Boe’s bridge had not yet been attended to. He moved that it be done as soon as possible; also washaway on Tyabb Road. Cr. Unthank seconded.- Carried. Cr Longmuir asked the Engineer to attend to scouring on Watt’s Road. *** ARRANGEMENTS for the Japanese fair, in aid of the Comforts fund and Red Cross society at Somerville, on August 16th and 17th are going well forward.

When A Meter Has Your Measure – Tales from the Hipster Zone By Stuart McCullough PARKING. It’s my nemesis. My archenemy. The Moriarty to my Sherlock. The Lex Luther to my Superman. The Torvill to my Dean. We simply don’t get on. And whilst I despise car parking generally, I am especially averse to parking anywhere in the immediate north of the city. Especially Fitzroy, where the hipsters roam and beard wax is in plentiful supply. In Fitzroy, they treat parking like something requiring punishment and go out of their way to make it as difficult as possible. I was heading to Gertrude Street, Fitzroy. For those unfamiliar with it, Gertrude Street is deep within Melbourne’s hipster hinterland. Rivers of almond milk run freely and it rains irony in Gertrude Street. You can’t turn around without tripping over quinoa or being attacked by a herd of wild tofu. Despite the dangers, I had the best of reasons for going there. I was meeting up with some friends I hadn’t seen in ages for lunch. Naturally, I prepared as best I could. I looked up the route and calculated approximate travel times, taking into account whether or not there was football at the MCG (there wasn’t). I programmed my destination into the GPS and prepared a small backpack with supplies; including matches, a raincoat and a flare gun before setting off. Melbourne really is a city of two halves. Your allegiance is either to the south or north of the river. Crossing the Yarra is like entering another country, full of strange customs and, if not another language, then certainly another accent where young people strangle their vowels as if consuming

an especially large lozenge. Surprisingly, Punt Road didn’t give me any trouble. To be safe, I kept the doors locked and remained vigilant at traffic lights, lest someone should launch themselves across the bonnet and attempt to clean my windscreen. I made it to Gertrude Street at the exact time the computer had told me I would. All I needed to do was find somewhere to park the car before going to lunch. I should have known that trying to find a place to park in Fitzroy was tempting fate. Fool that I am, I began the diligent process of crawling along various side streets. There were of course, no available car parks. Actually, that’s not quite true – there were plenty of car parks,

it’s that they were only available to residents; meaning that if I took one, I was at risk of being captured by angry locals, dragged to the town square and held in stocks before being pelted with organically grown fruit. I kept driving, without success. By this point, I wondered whether it might’ve been quicker to have walked from home as I was no longer in the postcode in which I’d started. Eventually, I found somewhere to park that was a phenomenal distance from my ultimate destination. Lucky I had my emergency supplies. All I needed to do was buy a ticket but, even on a Sunday, street parking in Fitzroy is four dollars an hour. That’s some heavy-duty coinage, right

there, so I thought I’d try to pay by credit card. I stared at the machine. The machine stared back. It told me that I could only use a credit card if I downloaded an app. There was little choice. I went to the app store. I downloaded the app. I then followed the prompts as it pressed me to tell my entire life story. Finally, I pushed a button to trigger a confirmation email with my password. Only the email didn’t arrive. I was snookered. I emptied my pockets. I checked behind the seats and the glove box. I scoured the footpath. In short, I did everything I could to scrounge up every coin available to me. Holding them in my hand like metallic magic beans, I started to feed the meter.

Coin after coin after coin, they landed with a jangle. Then, without warning, all the coins came flooding back out again, leaving me without a ticket. Surely, I reasoned, this was an error? Once again, I patiently deposited the coins and, once more, the machine spat out the coins. On the third time, I noticed a message on the screen –‘use fewer coins’. This, I thought, was an outrage. It’s bad enough they’re charging an exorbitant amount. To criticise my legitimate use of legal tender was beyond the pale ale. Clearly, they’d decided to make the act of buying a parking ticket as difficult as possible. Once again, I fed the coins into the machine to work out the maximum amount I could use before they all came out again. After several trial runs, I had it all figured out and got a ticket. This gave me one hour and forty-five minutes of parking time, which was roughly how long it was going to take me to walk back to Gertrude Street. I set of a flare to celebrate. I must have been a sight when I entered the hotel. Windblown, sunburned and crawling on my hands and knees, I made sure to drop breadcrumbs in order to find my way back again. Luckily, lunch made it worth the while. Amazingly, I managed to find my way back to the car later that day. As I pulled out of the parking spot, I felt lighter for having survived an encounter with a parking meter in Fitzroy. Although it’s possible I felt lighter simply because I no longer had eight dollars in coins clogging up my wallet. stuart@stuartmccullough.com

Pines pump sluggish Stonecats DIVISION ONE

By Brodie Cowburn PINES have continued their impressive run of form with a dominant victory over Frankston YCW on Saturday. The Stonecats travelled to Pines’ Eric Bell Reserve in fifth place, having corrected the course of their season with two consecutive wins. Pines entered the contest on a three match winning streak, with a victory last week over Sorrento being the most impressive among them. Although the game had all the makings of classic contest, Pines killed their opponents off quickly, racing away to a 33 point lead at the quarter time break. In blustery conditions, YCW struggled badly against a Pines side who are known to punish teams on the scoreboard. By half time, the Stonecats had only kicked one goal and ten behinds. Another goalless quarter saw the Stonecats go into the final term down by 52 points, and while they would hold Pines scoreless in the final term, it was too little too late. With another loss on the board with just two games left to play, Frankston YCW are left just barely hanging onto their finals spot, as they went down to Pines 10.10 (70) to 3.19 (37). The result effectively secured Pines’ place inside the top five. Bonbeach were also fighting to keep their finals hopes alive this weekend, as they took on Mornington in a must win match at Bonbeach Recreation Reserve.

The Sharks raced out to a comfortable lead over the Bulldogs in the first half, and maintained control of the contest throughout. Mornington could do nothing to stop a rampaging Trent Dennis-Lane, who piled on a stunning nine goals in a best on ground performance for Bonbeach. Dennis-Lane’s haul proved the difference, as Bonbeach put themselves within two points of a finals place with a 16.13 (109) to 9.12 (66) win. With YCW falling and Bonbeach still

a little bit further behind, the weekend presented the perfect opportunity for the Frankston Bombers to snatch back their place inside the top five if they could beat Edithvale-Aspendale. The Bombers kicked with a strong breeze in the first term, but it proved to be a frustrating start to the contest for the finals contender. They went into the first break with a five point lead, but had kicked inaccurately. The Bombers’ cause was also hurt by a nasty injury, after Brian O’Carroll

was knocked out cold in an accidental collision and transported from the ground in an ambulance. O’Carroll has since been released from hospital. Kicking with the wind, Edi-Asp went on to take control of the contest. The Bombers stayed in touch but ultimately were let down by their number of turnovers going forward. Edi-Asp were helped by a five goal performance from Tom Lamb, who was making a one off appearance for the club after playing the majority of the year in the VFL with Sandringham. Although the Bombers were competitive, ultimately Edi-Asp prevailed to claim the four points and stay in touch with first place on the ladder with a 13.13 (91) to 8.14 (62) win. Edi-Asp coach Graeme Yeats said after the game that the win was an important one. “It was a really important win today, and in the context of what’s happening inside the top five it was also an important game for them. They were striving to get back in the top five, and they’re a really strong team with a lot of talent so we knew that we were in for a strong challenge,” he said. “We wanted our players to be ready for them to be aggressive and strong around the ball. They were strong, but we were able to play the game on our terms. We executed the game plan well. “We play Mt Eliza next week and the loser will be vulnerable with Pines pushing up, they pose a threat. We’ve got to keep focused and do whatever we can to be better for next week.”

eventually claimed an emphatic win 11.14 (80) to 8.6 (54). At Glover Reserve, 11th placed Tyabb were also looking to continue a decent run of form by travelling to take on Devon Meadows. Despite going into the contest as underdogs, Tyabb got off to a fast start and held the Panthers goalless in the first term. Devon Meadows battled hard to work their way back into contention, but ultimately their poor kicking was letting them down. By the time the siren blew for half time, the Panthers had kicked a shocking two goals and twelve behinds. After the main break the Panthers looked a reinvigorated side, as they finally began hitting the scoreboard and claimed a three point lead going into the final term. Against the odds, the Yabbies fought back, and held on to claim a hard fought eight point win over Devon Meadows. The final score read 7.18 (60) to 10.8 (68). Around the grounds, Crib Point hosted Dromana in what would turn out to be a miserable afternoon for the Magpies. Crib Point were little chance against a Dromana side who has been dominant for the most part of the year, with the lead at half time standing at a whopping 98 points in the Tigers’ favour. Things didn’t get much better after the main break either, with the final margin standing at 175 points. Eight goal hauls from Sam Fowler and Ethan Johnstone helped Dromana secure the most comfortable of victo-

ries 2.5 (17) to 28.24 (192). Two of the top five sides also faced off this weekend in an important match, as Karingal battled Chelsea in a clash to determine who would go into the final round of the year in third place. Karingal got off to a difficult start in front of their home crowd, failing to register a goal in their first term. Although they would look a little better after the first break, the Bulls struggled to keep up with an impressive Chelsea outfit. The Seagulls worked hard to maintain their lead throughout the afternoon, as they kept Karingal comfortably out of reach. Despite winning the final quarter, Karingal couldn’t do enough to chip back a big lead, and they eventually fell to Chelsea 7.14 (56) to 13.8 (86). Reid Crowe continued a good run of form with a best on ground performance for the Seagulls, while teammates Todd Gardiner and Jack Francis were also instrumental. The final match of the round saw Pearcedale take on Rye in a dead rubber match at Pearcedale Recreation Reserve. Despite having nothing to play for, both sides battled hard throughout the game. The lead stood at just one point at the three-quarter time break, with Pearcedale just ahead. Although the game looked set to go down to the wire, Pearcedale kicked away in the final term to secure a gritty win 10.15 (75) to 6.12 (48). Luke Daniel was best player afield for Pearcedale, kicking three goals in an impressive performance.

To keep their finals hopes alive, the Bombers will likely need to win next weekend against Sorrento at David Macfarlane Reserve. Sorrento maintained their spot on top of the ladder by grinding out a tough win over bottom placed Seaford on Saturday. Up against a side with only one win to their name this season, Sorrento made the decision to leave out a number of key names in Chris Dawes, Daniel Grant, and Troy Schwarze. Sorrento again got off to a slow start, as the Tigers raced out to a shock 19 point lead at the quarter time break. After the first break, the Sharks quickly got back on track with a six goals to one second quarter, as they claimed a 19 point lead of their own going into the second half. While Seaford battled bravely to stay in the contest, the class and strength of Sorrento was just too much for them. The result saw Sorrento maintain their spot on top of the ladder, as they claimed a 11.10 (76) to 16.12 (108) win. The final game of the weekend in Division One saw Mt Eliza secure their finals spot with a big win over Rosebud. The Redlegs got off to a red hot start, and took a whopping 65 point lead into the half time break. While Rosebud fought hard to restore some respectability, they ultimately couldn’t get close to Mt Eliza, as the score eventually finished 6.5 (41) to 19.12 (126) in the Redlegs’ favor.

Kangaroos snatch a finals spot DIVISION TWO

By Brodie Cowburn LANGWARRIN have remarkably snuck into the top five with just one round left to play after beating Somerville to claim their third consecutive win. Both sides started slowly in a scrappy first term, but a stunning eight goals to one second quarter saw Langwarrin claim complete control. Somerville could do little to work their way back into the contest, and ultimately fell short as the Kangaroos claimed a vital 15.7 (97) to 10.15 (75) win. Sitting a couple of games behind Hastings a few weeks ago, Langwarrin’s finals chances looked slim at best. They now sit clear inside the top five by two points, with their finals destiny in their own hands. They play Pearcedale at home next weekend. The win caps off a great week for the Kangaroos, who also announced they had resigned co-coaches Blake McCormack and Josh Beard for the next two seasons. Langwarrin were able to claim a spot inside the top five after Hastings suffered a defeat at the hands of Red Hill at Red Hill Recreation Reserve. Although Hastings got off to a strong start and led at the half time break, Red Hill quickly wrestled back control and showed why they are a team to be reckoned with this season. With Red Hill looking to bounce back from their loss last week to Dromana, their first loss in over a month, they were ruthless in the second half and

Macleod: ‘Hardest season of my career’ SOCCER

By Craig MacKenzie GUS Macleod has come through the toughest test of his coaching career by steering Langwarrin to NPL2 safety. The veteran gaffer is in his 20th season at Lawton Park and has enjoyed league titles and multiple promotions highlighted by the 2017 State 1 SouthEast title which was Langy’s ticket to the NPL. “I’ve felt the weight of the club’s expectations on my shoulders and it would have been a disaster for us if we’d have been relegated in our first season in the NPL,” Macleod said. “This has been the hardest season of my coaching career and I’ll sit down with the club at the end of the year and decide where we go from here.” Langy’s 2-1 away victory the previous week over Whittlesea Ranges secured its NPL place for 2019 so Saturday’s 3-2 home loss to Sunshine George Cross was no major setback. In what turned out to be a goalfest a quick one-two between Langy midfielders Paul Speed and Mehdi Sarwari in the opening minute saw the latter send Johnny Kuol clear and Langy led 1-0. It took until the 71st minute for the visitors to equalise but for George Cross fans it was worth the wait as a superb curling free-kick from Jungho Kim made it 1-1. Then an attempted cross from Karl Baricevic on the left wing in the 78th minute looped over Langy keeper Robbie Acs and Georgies were ahead. Kuol equalised from close range in the 85th minute breaking onto a great through ball from central defender Lloyd Clothier but Ben Mammone nabbed the winner a couple of minutes later with a good finish from 10 metres. One of the highlights of Langy’s season has been the consistency of Scottish recruit Andy McLean and the former Berwick Rangers defender is a leading candidate for player of the year honours. “I wish I had another dozen like him,” Macleod said. “He travels all the way from St Kilda and he never complains or answers you back and he’s just happy to play wherever you select him. “He’s a gem.” In NPLW news US import Michaela Dooley made an impressive debut in Southern United’s 2-0 loss against Box Hill United at Wembley Park on Saturday. Just when it looked as if Southern had secured a point Box Hill scored in the 89th and 91st minutes.

Southern’s under-12s continued their impressive debut season with a 5-0 win thanks to goals from Emilia Ingles (2), Rhiannon Kelleher, Chiara Renzella and Leah Plavljanic. Southern’s under-14s stayed on track for another title by winning 5-0 with goals from Rhys McKenna (2), Erica-Derrick Sarfo-Sarpong, Macey Butler and Candy Kilderry. Second-placed Calder United lost ground in the championship race by drawing 1-1 at home to South Melbourne which gives Southern a five point buffer with four games remaining. The under-16s lost 3-0 and the under-19s lost 4-0. In State 1 South-East news Mornington had a bye after the withdrawal from competition of Morwell Pegasus late last week. Morwell has struggled to field senior and reserve teams for some time and senior coach Carlos Retre has recommended to the committee that it reenters the local competition for next season and appoints a local coach. Warragul is now the only Gippsland side in State 1 and carries the hopes of FFV which is known to be keen to establish an NPL presence in the region. In State 2 South-East news Frankston Pines lost 1-0 away to Berwick City on Saturday while Peninsula Strikers were preparing to take on North Caulfield at Caulfield Park on Sunday as we went to print. The decisive moment in the Pines’

game came in the 20th minute and a near post header from Jarod Blackbourn settled the issue. Pines’ best chance in the second half fell to CJ Hodgson but he blew a oneon-one by shooting straight at Berwick keeper Christian Morales. Five minutes later Ben Millward blazed his strike over the bar in a scrappy contest in which both sides struggled to fashion many chances. In State 3 South-East news Skye remained in the promotion race thanks to a 1-0 home win over Collingwood City last weekend. Caleb Nicholes scored the decider in the 38th minute after holding off two defenders before finishing well from the left of the area. It was a dour struggle for the most part and Skye’s best was keeper Jonathan Crook. Harry McCartney reports that Seaford United remains locked in a relegation battle after losing 4-0 away to promotion candidate Monbulk Rangers on Friday night. This contest was over by half-time thanks to a hat-trick from Orien Hummennyi-Jameson and a simple tap-in by Cameron Poynter. Seaford’s dismal night got worse in the 87th minute when a Matty Schwellinger challenge earned a straight red. Baxter is clinging to its State 4 South status by a fingernail and remains at the foot of the table after a 2-2 home draw against Sandringham

City last Saturday. Baxter was leading 2-1 until a long punt downfield by Sandringham keeper Adam Chesterton was allowed to bounce over the heads of a bamboozled Baxter defence and teenage Sandy winger Ben Harris nipped in to neatly guide the ball past advancing Baxter keeper James Foster in the 88th minute for the equaliser. The sides were locked at 1-1 at halftime and both goals were absolute crackers. Sandy striker Bailey Nievaart mistimed an attempted volley in the 27th minute but when the ball bounced back up he made no mistake a second time sending it like a tracer bullet past Foster from 20 metres. A minute later Stuart McKenzie was the only player inside the box to attack the ball with intent from a corner sending a powerful header past Chesterton for the equaliser. Substitute Dan Disseldorp stroked the ball home from point blank range in the 60th minute following good work on the left of the area from Baxter’s most dangerous player Ben Meiklem and just when the home side thought that it had secured all three points it paid dearly for a late defensive brain fade. In State 5 South news Somerville Eagles are locked in a five-way tussle for promotion after Saturday’s 0-0 home draw with fellow contender Lyndale United. Saturday’s clash featured some thun-


derous tackles and plenty of needle. Apart from looking dangerous from numerous set pieces and long throws Lyndale found it hard to muster a clear-cut chance in open play. And the visitors can thank their lucky stars that the assistant referee saw an offside against Joel Wade that no one else did to deny Somerville from taking the lead in the 25th minute. Lyndale goalkeeper Danny Pehar pulled off two blinding saves, one in each half, to deny Somerville playercoach Dave Greening. With less than five minutes to go a clever pass from Damian Finnegan found Greening who took a stunning first touch between two defenders only to be denied by a remarkable save by Pehar. “Before the game with so many players missing we probably would have taken a point but on the balance of chances we probably should of won,” Greening said after the match. “We knew we were in for a battle today and there were no passengers out there. It really was blood and thunder stuff, so credit to our boys for matching them and standing up to the physical challenge.” The result allowed Old Mentonians to jump to the top of the State 5 South ladder after their 3-1 win over Aspendale at Jack Grut Reserve on Saturday. A Marcus Spivey goal in the 18th minute gave the visitors the lead but a long-range strike from Dominic Paul in the 54th minute made it 1-1. A superb solo effort from James Bingham restored the visitors’ lead seven minutes later. Young midfielder Claudio Barracos had only recently joined Aspendale and had to be replaced with what looks like a season-ending knee injury and Cameron Ironside completed the scoreline in the 86th minute.

Nick Jewell returns to Rosebud FOOTBALL

By Brodie Cowburn ROSEBUD Football Club have announced the return of Nick Jewell to the position of senior coach for the 2019 season. Rosebud president Lachie White said that the decision to appoint Rosebud’s 2015 premiership coach was a simple one after his senior players urged that Jewell be considered. “The players pretty much came to us to recommend him. That was mainly led by the older guys that had been coached by him previously, and it all came about after Adrian had given his notice. Straight away on social media everyone chats among themselves and pretty much as soon as Adrian stepped down, people got talking about this appointment pretty swiftly,” he said. “We put the coaching applications out there, and the players who were there for our 2015 premiership knew Nick was looking for another coaching job, and he’d had quite a few interviews lined up. At the end of the day we were the lucky ones, and we’re feeling really good about it.” Jewell has signed a two year deal, which will see him coach through until the end of the 2020 season. “We had about five candidates lined up, but some of them couldn’t get down to the peninsula

in the time frame we were looking for. The bottom line is we had to act quickly, so that’s in a nutshell how it panned out,” White said. The decision comes after current head coach Adrian McBean recently announced his intention to step down at the conclusion of the current season. Under McBean’s guidance, Rosebud made the Preliminary Final in 2017, but have struggled this year and currently sit in eighth place on the Division One ladder. “There’s no ill feeling between us and Adrian. He’s given his notice and he’ll be moving on at the end of the season. We’ve got our last home game this week so we’re trying to make this special for both Adrian and our reserves coach Luke Farrelly who is also stepping down,” White said. Jewell last coached Rosebud in 2015, before resigning from the position following his side’s Grand Final win. He went on to coach Sorrento during 2017 before stepping down from that role before their Grand Final victory at the end of the year. Jewell most recently coached Seymour Football Club in the Goulburn Valley League at the beginning of the year, but resigned that position after Round 2 citing family and business commitments. Nick is the son of 1980 Richmond premiership coach Tony Jewell.

Cranbourne set sights on MPNFL FOOTBALL

By Brodie Cowburn FOLLOWING months of speculation, the Cranbourne Football Club have officially submitted their application to join the MPNFL. AFL South East received the club’s application on Wednesday 1 August, and will now place the fate of the Cranbourne Football Club in the hands of the existing MPNFL teams. The 22 clubs currently occupying the MPNFL’s two divisions will hold a vote at a general meeting at the end of August to determine if Cranbourne should be granted entry into the league. Cranbourne President Gerry Kelly said he had spoken to club presidents already, and felt that his side had a strong chance of being admitted into the league. “I think the feeling among the other MPNFL presidents is good. I think a lot of them want a third division at some point so that clubs in second division can be more competitive, and I think Cranbourne Football Club will really be able to add something,” he said. Cranbourne hopes to be admitted straight into Division One, but are willing to play

their way up from Division Two if necessary. Kelly also said that he felt the league was the right fit “geographically” for the Cranbourne Football Club. “We see ourselves as the edge of the Mornington Peninsula, that’s the main reason we’re looking to join the MPNFL. Another reason is we just want to be a part of a great, even competition. What we’ve got now in the SEFNL is a few big powerful clubs, and others we know we’re going to beat every time. After a long time of that happening, it’s not appealing for us anymore,” he said. “Even though the Division One in the MPNFL is very strong at the moment, I think Cranbourne Football Club would fit in well there and add a different dynamic.” Cranbourne currently play in the SEFNL, which will be disbanding after the conclusion of this season. Six SEFNL clubs recently had their move to the Yarra Ranges competition for 2019 approved, and with that process already moving forward it is looking increasingly likely the MPNFL is Cranbourne’s last resort. The club recently made headlines when star goal kicker Marc Holt booted his 1000th club goal. Cranbourne is looking to re-sign Holt so that he can help their MPNFL charge next season.

Nichols’ Star ready to return in preparation for spring SHANE Nichols’ sole Group 1 winning mare, I Am A Star, is set to return to the races this Saturday 11 August, as she gears up for the fastapproaching Spring racing carnival. The quality mare missed the Autumn carnival due to minor injuries and hasn’t raced since November last year, but Nichols is confident she can get back to her best this campaign when she kicks off in the Group 3 Aurie’s Star Handicap (1200m) at Flemington. “She’s a bit limited in what we can target as she’s probably a bit behind the boys at Group 1 weight-for-age level, but when she’s at level weights against the girls she can be quite dominant,” Nichols said. The Mornington-based trainer, who broke through for a maiden Group 1 victory in the 2016 Myer Classic with I Am A Star, said he has been very happy with the way she has come back after minor setbacks from her spring campaign last year. “We had some issues in the autumn where she just didn’t come up,” he said. “She developed a splint, and she had a little bit of an issue with her feet, so we elected to give her a

longer break so she can have some time to get over those problems.” I Am A Star trialled at Pakenham on Wednesday 25 July before having two more jump outs at Mornington and Cranbourne in preparation for her return. “I thought her jump out at Pakenham was very good where we wanted to ride her very conservatively,” Nichols said. “She returned in the Aurie’s Star last year where she finished fourth, but she would have done more work heading into it this time around.” While Nichols believes the Aurie’s Star is a great kick off point for her campaign, the Group 2 Stock Stakes, which she won last year, is her main target before progressing into Group 1 company. “If she can get back to her peak then she can be competitive in Group 1 races, but the Stock Stakes at Moonee Valley is the realistic target for her,” he said. Those Group 1 targets could include the Toorak Handicap (1600m), at Caulfield and the Myer Classic (1600m), at Flemington.

Rosebud golfer crowned world masters champ By Ben Triandafillou ROSEBUD Country Club member Nola Geary got more than she bargained for when travelling to Thailand for a golfing holiday in June. The avid golfer competed, as usual, in several competitions while on vacation, but she wasn’t expecting to be crowned as a world masters champion. “We go to Thailand to play golf and do what I love to do. I never expected to win,” she said. Competing against more than 500 golfers in the Ladies 60+ A-grade division at the Centara Grand Beach Resort in Hua Hin, Geary entered the tournament for a “bit of fun” and to enjoy another course on her three week

holiday. But with stable ford rounds of 29, 36, 31 and 33 points, she was soon flooded with celebratory cheers. “It was pretty amazing,” she said. “I’m still getting over the shock of it all. Cameras were going off everywhere and it was all a bit surreal. “I knew I played well, but I’m a bit superstitious so I didn’t look at the scoreboard, and I didn’t want to know where I was at until the end of the day.” It’s no shock that she felt “pretty chuffed” when she found out that she had been crowned the Thailand World Masters champion for her division. For the win, Geary was awarded a Taylor Made Spider Tour putter and

a mixed assortment of several other goodies, such as framed photos, vouchers, caps and golf balls. Geary has competed in the competition twice now, with her most recent trip to Thailand for golf being her fifth. However, this time was a little different as she joined with a group called the “Kanga Krew”. “We took a big, green and gold blowup Kangaroo over there to let everyone know where we were from,” she said. “It was a fun thing to do with friends from different clubs. It just added to the fun.” Geary said the trip was very much worth it and a trip back next year was looking highly likely.


Waves continue surge for finals NETBALL

By Ben Triandafillou PENINSULA Waves’ under-19s netball side is the only Mornington Peninsula team left in contention for the VNL finals which get underway on Wednesday 22 August at the State Netball and Hockey Centre. The under-19s side, who currently sit at fourth on the ladder, faced off against DC North East Blaze last Wednesday 1 August, with both teams hungry for a win to place them in a favourable position ahead of the finals. A one goal lead continually alternated between the Waves and the Blaze across the first three quarters, until the Blaze opened up a four goal advantage by three quarter time. The Waves were determined to continue the battle and with less than a minute to go in the final quarter, they had levelled the score. However, a turnover in the Blaze’s favour saw them gain possession of the ball, with the Blaze’s GA, Abbey Ellis, taking the opportunity to score in the final seconds of the game to win the match, 52-51. Despite the one goal loss, the Waves are still in the running for the first round of finals. While none of the other Peninsula netball sides are able to qualify for the finals, they still put in cracking performances last Wednesday night against the Blaze and the Ariels. Despite the absence of key midcourter Kate Kelly-Oman, the Waves’ championship

side played an outstanding game against last year’s premiers, DC North East Blaze, with Sacha McDonald and Madeline Morrison standing out as star members of the team. However, the ten goals scored by the Blaze in the second quarter paved the way for them to score a 19-goal victory. The Southern Saints had better luck in their game, and demonstrated their drastic improvement across the season with a 13goal win over the Ariels. Even with the absence of Emily Wilson, the Southern Saints remained consistent throughout the game, failing to concede a quarter to the Ariels. Southern Saints GK, Mardi Cunningham, said that their performance was “one of the best games we’ve played in attack”. The Southern Saints defenders also did a great job in preventing the Ariels from levelling the score with several key turnovers throughout the match. While the Southern Saints are out of contention for finals, their development this season looks to set them up well for the upcoming season. In division one, the Peninsula Waves played in a thrilling game against the Blaze. Even though they too are out of contention for finals, the Waves came out with a point to prove and delivered a shock to their Diamond Creek opponents. In the absence of captain, Bridgette Barry-Murphy, Waves midcourter Claudia Whitfort stepped up and played one of her strongest games to date, with her teammates

following suit. Alex Maher and Chloe Phillips also shot with an impressive 95 per cent accuracy throughout the game. While the Blaze weren’t as accurate, both of the sides stayed within one goal of each other following each break. The Waves dug deep in the final quarter and shot 13 goals from 13 attempts, but the Blaze weren’t giving in and fought back to level the score by the final siren to tie the game up at 53-53. The Southern Saints came up against the Ariels in their division one game, and despite the Ariels holding the lead for three quarters of the game, the Southern Saints claimed a two-goal victory by the final whistle. Tension was showing in the final quarters with the Southern Saints’ shooting accuracy dropping to 50 per cent in the third quarter, and the Ariels dropping to 55 per cent in the fourth. However, both teams persevered despite the setback to engage in a highly competitive game of netball. The Southern Saints under-19s game against the Ariels concluded the round with the Ariels prevailing with a 12-goal victory. Kara Morrison and Grace Kelly were particularly valuable for the Ariels with their shooting efforts scoring at 86 per cent accuracy. In round 17, the Waves will face City West Falcons, while the Southern Saints will come up against the Selkirk Sovereigns at the State Netball and Hockey Centre on Wednesday 8 August.

By Ben Triandafillou THE Big V finals series has arrived with four sides from the Mornington Peninsula ready to make their mark on Saturday 4 August. The high flying Chelsea Gulls will enjoy a bye in the first week following their 14th straight victory against Whittlesea (92-79) in round 18, while the other three sides will contest the opening round. The Southern Peninsula Sharks state championship women’s team were striving to land a home final and jump to fourth on the ladder following their round 18 match against Keilor Thunder, but were narrowly nudged out by the Hume City Broncos, despite their victory. The Sharks will head into the finals in hot form having had just the one loss from their past six games, but will meet the team that handed them that one loss, Hume City Broncos, in the first round. Southern Peninsula Sharks men’s division two side have also made their way into the finals and have secured a home game against the Melton Thoroughbreds. The Sharks will head into the match brimming with confidence following their 11-point win over the Maccabi Warriors (75-64) in the final round of the season. The last time the Sharks faced Melton, the Thoroughbreds got the upper-hand and secured a three-point victory in round 13. The final side to secure their spot in the finals is the Western Port Steelers division one men’s team who will also head into the finals series with confidence after defeating the Shepparton Gators by two-points (89-87). The Steelers were unlucky not to have jumped to second place on the ladder and land a bye through to the second round of the finals after bringing up their fourth consecutive victory. The Steelers took their tally to 17 wins for the season and equalled that of Keysborough (second) and Shepparton (third), who both sit at 17. Due to their winning percentage, the Steelers finished fourth on the ladder. However, unlike Keysborough and Shepparton, the Steelers head into the finals in good form having won their last four games. They’ll face another side in hot form, the Warrnambool Seahawks, who have claimed wins in their last five matches. The Steelers will get the benefit of having a home final.

New clubhouse a short-priced favourite By Ben Triandafillou COMMUNITY groups needing a space to meet and practice with a kitchenette, audiovisual equipment, air-conditioning and toilet facilities, can rest easy. They can now use a purpose-built venue at Mornington racecourse with plenty of outdoor space as well as an adjoining riding track. The clubhouse was paid for by the racecourse management committee, Racing Victoria, and Melbourne Racing Club Foundation. Racing Victoria donated $50,000 in unallocated prize money from the 2016 Ladbrokes Stakes, won by Winx. The race attracted only three horses as many trainers declined to enter, knowing Winx would likely win, so fourth place prize money went unallocated. Although all groups are welcome to use it, the clubhouse best suited Riding for Disabled Mornington. The 32-member group has

been using the members’ carpark for their twice-weekly program for about 30 years. Those with disabilities, or wheelchairs, ride in horse-drawn carriages, enjoying the physical and emotional therapy, exercise and social interaction. MRC Foundation chairman Patricia Faulkner said the clubhouse was a welcome addition to the charity. “Organisations such as RDA are exactly why we created the MRC Foundation,” she said. “The local charity group provides a fantastic service to our community with the healing and physical education powers of horses. “We cannot commend RDA highly enough and are happy to help them continue their great work.” Racing Victoria CEO Giles Thompson said he was pleased the $50,000 donation was being used in this way. “The new clubhouse is a fantastic facility

and will make a huge difference to community groups, especially the Mornington branch of RDA, which does much to enrich the lives of people with disabilities,” he said. Mornington Racecourse committee-ofmanagement chairman Tony Hancy said the racecourse was a “key part of the Mornington community” and that other groups were welcome to use the clubhouse. “As a committee we are dedicated to working for the betterment of our local area,” he said. “One way we can do that is by opening up the racecourse to the wider community so that more may benefit from our state-of-the-art facilities and expertise.” Community groups or small organisations wanting to use the clubhouse can contact Mornington Racecourse 5975 3310 or visit their website.
