Beating bullying before it starts ANTI-BULLYING seminars for children aged 6-14 and their parents will be held at a Mornington martial arts centre next month. The free seminars are aimed at teaching children practical strategies to help them identify and deal with bullying behaviour and how to “buddy” rather than “bully” others. “Bullying is still a huge problem, and we believe that no other industry is better equipped to end bullying than martial arts,” said Glenn Shand, owner and chief instructor of Peninsula Kung Fu. The centre is a member of Martial Artists Against Bullying, an international organisation with hundreds of members devoted to “ending bullying once and for all”. Assistant instructor Sarah Hanna is presenting the seminars which she says are the first held in Mornington. “There is a lot more to martial arts than just fighting,” she said. “Participants learn self-control, how to behave with other people, and selfconfidence. “The seminars will focus on learning strategies to avoid being bullied, such as avoiding eye contact, standing up and not slouching, and ways to react to let potential bullies know [you] will stand up to them.” Continued Page 9

‘All clear’ for speed cameras Stephen Taylor steve@mpnews.com.au THE Road Safety Camera Commissioner has backed the performance of the Peninsula Link speed cameras and reproached motorists contesting their fines. The commissioner, John Voyage, was asked to investigate the cameras by Police Minister Lisa Neville after “public disquiet about the system” – most noticeably by members of the

108 group who claimed they had “set their vehicle’s cruise controls and so the detected speed reading was in error”. Mr Voyage stated in his report that he was “unable to find any error in any of the aspects of the road safety camera systems along Peninsula Link”. His investigation covered six sites of instant camera systems and four pointto-point zones. “I find there to be a pervasive culture … among drivers of slowing at cam-

Shire slows down for safety Keith Platt keith@mpnews.com.au EFFORTS being made to cut the road toll on the Mornington Peninsula will be outlined to an international audience in Canada in August. Road safety specialist Bruce Corben will outline the shire’s Towards Zero strategies and objectives to the ninth international conference on urban traffic safety Committee in Banff, Alberta, Canada in August. It is now one year since Mornington Peninsula Shire agreed to instigate road safety programs designed to make it a Towards Zero municipality and at the start of this month there had been no deaths recorded on the peninsula’s roads this year. The last recorded death was in Boundary Rd, Dromana on 16 December last year when a man died after the car he was driving hit a power pole just before midnight. Steps being taken to reduce death and injury resulting from traffic incidents centre mainly on reducing vehicle speeds. Traffic “calming” structures are being constructed in local streets and speed limits are being reduced on many roads, especially where there are high volumes of cyclists and pedestrians. In other places, such as near the Pillars rock diving site off the Esplanade, Mt Martha, signs advise drivers to drive slower than the legal speed limit. The shire is buying fleet vehicles with five-star safety ratings and also

asking the state government for money to help make safer roads. The shire’s acting manager for infrastructure strategy Ed Pocock said the most current road trauma statistics for the peninsula show that between the start of 2012 and the end of 2016, there

have been 37 deaths and 572 serious injuries on peninsula roads. He said Towards Zero strategy has been developed to align shire with the state’s current road safety strategy and follows the principles of the Shire’s Peninsula Drivesafe 2008-2018 strategy.

The shire also works with Frankston on road safety initiatives and programs. Concern about the number of road accidents is also expressed in the shire’s alcohol policy, which states that there are more alcohol-related in-

cidents in the shire than elsewhere in the state. Between 2012 and 2014 ambulance attendances in the shire to alcohol-related incidents were 33 per cent higher than in Victoria as a whole; emergency department presentations were 40 per cent higher; and hospital admissions were 39 per cent higher. “While alcohol consumption is widely recognised as a legitimate social activity, alcohol-related harm is a significant public health issue which currently impacts Mornington Peninsula Shire residents at a higher rate than that of Victoria,” the shire’s alcohol policy states. At a recent council meeting the shire was praised for its “leadership” in road safety by the Assistant Commissioner of Road Policing Doug Fryer, and Bryan Sherritt, director of the Safe System Infrastructure Program team formed by the Transport Accident Commission and VicRoads. The mayor Cr Bev Colomb said providing a safe road network was an important part of the shire’s responsibility. “We are glad to be working in collaboration with the Transport Accident Commission, VicRoads and Victoria Police on the Towards Zero initiative to reduce road trauma on the peninsula. “We will continually advocate to the state government to help improve our roads to ensure our community members and tourists have safe and relaxed driving experience when driving around the peninsula.

THE now-flooded former Pioneer quarry off Boundary Rd, Dromana, left, and waterfalls, far left, on the edge of the quarry which community groups believe should eventually be open to the public. Right, pine trees which have invaded sections of the nearby state park.

VCAT ‘no’ to quarry permit Keith Platt keith@mpnews.com.au THE Victorian Civil Administrative Tribunal (VCAT) has determined that the planning permit for the former Pioneer quarry in Boundary Rd, Dromana has expired. Community groups are hailing the decision as a victory over Hillview Quarries although one leading campaigner cautions “we’ve won a battle, but not the war”. “We’re over the moon and I’d love to think that was the end, but I think it will go on,” Dr Mark Fancett, of the Sheepwash Creek Catchment Landcare group said. The decision handed down on 27 April is the second win for the protesters who also four years ago successfully campaigned against the quarry being used as a rubbish tip.

The ideal outcome, according to Dr Fancett would be for the former quarry to be added to the neighbouring Arthurs Seat State Park. “It’s an amazing piece of land … which ultimately we’d like to see opened to the community. There could be walking trails around the lake and the waterfalls are absolutely stunning. “If you go there it feels like the nearest house could be 100 kilometres away.” Hillview CEO Paul Nitas said on Thursday that the company was “at this stage reviewing the [VCT] decision to map out a way forward”. The decision had only been handed down the previous Friday and it was “too early in the process” to have yet decided what steps to take next. Mr Fancett said it was still open for Hillview to appeal against the VCAT decision through the Supreme Court. VCAT member Judith Perlstein ruled

that the quarry permit had expired “because the use of the land for the purpose of extractive industry did not start within two years of the issue of the permit”. And if the use did start within two years of the permit being issued it has expired “because the use of the land for extractive industry has been discontinued for … more than two years”. Jeremy Gobbo QC, appearing for Hillview, told the March hearing that once a resource was in place “you should be able to extract from that resource until it has been exhausted”. Ms Perlstein said although “this principle” may be recognised in the shire’s planning scheme it would still depend on the validity of a planning permit and did not depend such a permit may never expire due to discontinuance of use. If extraction was discontinued for more than two years it would be “ap-

It wasn’t hearing loss, it was just earwax!

propriate” to seek permission to continue extraction “and enable a review and consideration of any changes”. “This principle applies with even more force if the period of discontinuance is 15 years or more,” Ms Perlstein stated. Ms Perlstein found that the permit had expired, confirmed the shire’s decision and ordered that no amendments were to be made to the permit. A compulsory conference scheduled for 27 April and the hearing dates of 13 June were cancelled. Mr Fancett said he doubted that the controversy over the quarry’s future was over. “Obviously Hillview lost a lot of money, with time and effort being put into the landfill proposal,” he said. “If they had got the permit [for quarrying] it would not have had an expiry date and they would never have to rehabilitate the site.”

Mr Fancett said the permit which applied when Hillview bought the quarry from Pioneer in 1998 set out remediation conditions, including redirecting a creek back to its original path and removing extensive earthworks. He said the 15-hectare quarry site was surrounded by 70 hectares of Hillview-owned land, which contained “enough rock to last decades”. “But if they apply for a permit [to extract the rock] they’ll face more rigorous conditions and environmental effects and EPA reports.” Mr Fancett blamed pine trees planted in the quarry for a four to five hectare area within the state park “where the only living things are pine trees”. “There’s not much we can do now, but the council should oversee and enforce the conditions on the permit and see that the site is rehabilitated.”

Special court for family violence Stephen Taylor steve@mpnews.com.au A SPECIALIST family violence court to be established in Frankston is among a raft of state budget measures that MP Paul Edbrooke says “commit more to the prevention of family violence than the whole nation put together”. The new court – expected to be at the magistrates’ court in Fletcher Rd – was included in a $1.9 billion package to tackle family violence across the state. Other similar courts will be established at Ballarat, Shepparton, Moorabbin and Heidelberg magistrates’ courts at a cost of $90 million over five years. “There’s no sugar coating the fact that we are confronted with a terrible family violence issue in our community and we can choose to bury our heads or treat it,” Mr Edbrooke said. “I choose to treat it and this investment is part of a coordinated response towards ensuring everyone can feel safe in their own home.” Mr Edbrooke said the family violence court would be a “lifesaver”. “We know that we are over-represented in this area and this, and the proposed support and safety hubs, are going to make a difference.” A function of the courts will be to “enhance safety and accessibility for victim survivors,” budget papers said. “The funding will also ensure that the facilities in these courts are equipped with a range of interventions to challenge perpetrator behaviour and hold them to account.” Frankston mayor Cr Brian Cunial, a serving

Victoria Police officer, welcomed a dedicated family violence court in Frankston. “It is an unfortunate reality that Frankston experiences the highest rate of family violence call outs in metropolitan Melbourne.” A support and safety hub will be established later this year. Designed as a central point for information, triage and access for those experiencing family violence, the hub will cater to victim survivors and their friends and family, and be an access point for doctors, teachers and police. At the hub, additional training on preventing and responding to family violence will be given to mental health, alcohol and drug, and child protection workers. The capacity of the coroner’s court to investigate family violence-related deaths will also be expanded. In other state budget measures: More than 68,000 extra cases of assistance will be provided to victim survivors of family violence for crisis and case management support, and specialist family violence support, across the state. Face-to-face after-hours crisis support will be expanded, and funding will continue to support the 24/7 telephone-based-crisis service. Victims of family violence will receive 11,000 additional cases of assistance for counselling and therapeutic support to aid their recovery. Thirteen family violence refuges will be redeveloped to move to the ‘core and cluster’ model by 2020. About 4000 men who perpetrate violence against women will have access to voluntary places in behaviour change programs.

Taking night back A MARCH to “take back the night” attended by up to 150 people last Saturday (29 April) was aimed at letting a distressed Seaford woman that “she is not alone”. “We can’t change her life but I feel we helped her life,” Seaford Night March organiser Emmaline Jones said, referring to a 19-year-old attacked and sexually assaulted as she walked home from Seaford station, 3.10am, Saturday 1 April. The march started at the station and continued along Railway Parade to mirror the route the woman took before being attacked near Seaford North Reserve. Ms Jones, speaking alongside the march’s coorganiser Lana Nicholson, said support by both men and women was “fantastic”. “We had originally hoped for about 30 people to turn up but, in the end, we had about 150,” she said. The catalyst for the march was derogatory social media comment criticising the woman for walking home alone at that time of the morning. “The victim was being blamed but I thought: ‘Where is the witch-hunt for him?’” Ms Jones said. “We originally planned to meet at 3am and say ‘here we are’.”

Only two sets were received, and both GPS data logs were of little or no probative value.” Mr Voyage said: “After exhaustive analysis, we have no evidence of any failures in the road safety camera system; and no evidence of reliance upon cruise control leading to adverse outcomes.” He said many drivers expressed the “erroneous belief that the point-to-point system would average the speeds at the two instantaneous ends of the zone; others thought that the point-to-point measure would be avoided by travelling at or below the speed limit at the instantaneous cameras”. “These beliefs are wrong and misconceived.” The point-to-point system will measure the average speed of all vehicle journeys between the two instantaneous cameras, regardless of the speed of entry and exit from the point-to-point zone. The report considered 60 million records, ana-

lysed 67,235 infringements and “many millions of individual journeys through the Peninsula Link road safety camera system”, Mr Voyage said. “We have analysed the driving behaviour of the alleged ‘infringers’ against all other drivers. “We have used the data to assess whether there is any anomaly, or spike in the graph, for infringements at any particular speed (the 108kph Facebook group had been especially vocal).” Mr Voyage said he had “no doubt that the data … showed a behaviour by drivers inconsistent with the claimed ‘set my cruise control and maintained constant speed’” explanation. He said it showed a behaviour of “altering speed at the cameras”. “This is consistent with a repeated comment from complainants of ‘I know where the cameras are’, which seems to imply some conscious or unconscious driving modification at the cameras. “These data show that this group of drivers, all of whom have received … infringements, are likely to be regular faster-than-the-limit travellers in the point-to-point, and have significantly slower (and compliant) speeds at the instantaneous zone.”

There’s an art in standing up to bullies Continued from Page 1 Ms Hanna said bullies often targeted weaker, smaller victims because they didn’t feel good in themselves and the assumed dominance made them feel superior. “My children are doing martial arts and that’s where they learn life’s lessons: respect, teamwork, grounding and how to deal with bad behaviour,” she said. “There is something we can do against bullying. We can learn to adopt a physical stance and

defend ourselves, but there are also a range of steps that can be out in place beforehand, such as by telling the bully you don’t like it, talking them down, and taking the power away from them.” The seminars will focus on awareness (identifying bullying behaviour), avoidance (learning ways to avoid being the target), and assertiveness (learning how to stop bullying behaviour). The first seminar will be 1-3pm, Saturday 3 June, at Peninsula Kung Fu, 1/2 Carbine Way, Mornington.

THE long-mooted Mordialloc bypass is expected to be built by 2021 after the state government announced $300 million for the project in the 201718 state budget unveiled on Tuesday (2 May). A 9-kilometre road will be built between Springvale Rd in Aspendale Gardens and the Dingley Bypass in Clayton South to ease congestion in the south east. The new Mordialloc bypass will link up with the existing Mornington Peninsula Freeway in a bid to prevent traffic jams and delays in peak hour traffic. Mordialloc Labor MP Tim Richardson welcomed the funding for the bypass. “I am so proud that the Labor government is building this vital and necessary road, to support local jobs and get you to work and home sooner and safer,” he said. Premier Daniel Andrews said the government is “getting on with the job” of improving transport infrastructure as part of a $9 billion infrastructure spend on roads, level crossings removals, education and health ahead of next year’s state election. “We’ll build the Mordialloc bypass to slash congestion and create jobs in Melbourne’s south east,” Mr Andrews said in a statement. VicRoads will consult with Kingston Council, transport businesses and residents about plans to build the Mordialloc Bypass from Aspendale Gardens to Clayton South. A cycling and walking path will be built alongside the 9-kilometre bypass. An overpass will separate the new bypass from the busy Springvale Rd intersection that often sees Mornington Peninsula Freeway traffic backed up in busy travel periods. A 4.5 kilometre Mordialloc bypass was promised in 2014 by the previous Coalition state government, under then premier Denis Napthine, at a cost of $300 million. That bypass, had the Coalition won govern-

ment again, would have ended at Lower Dandenong Rd in Braeside. State Liberal opposition spokesman for roads and infrastructure Ryan Smith criticised the state government for “going back to the drawing board” on the Mordialloc bypass. “Under the previous Coalition government, works on the Mordialloc bypass would have commenced a year ago, under Daniel Andrews work won’t begin until 2019,” he said in a statement. Other major funding boosts for the Kingston area in this year’s state budget included $20.5 million to demolish and rebuild the Yarrabah School in Aspendale and $2.8 million to build a new base for the Chelsea SES unit.

NEWS DESK Dredging plans PARKS Victoria is seeking feedback on a proposed long term dredging plans for Port Phillip and Western Port bays. The organisation, in its role as port manager for both bays, dredges channels to provide safe access to the busiest recreational port facilities and harbours,” ports and waterways senior manager Victor Teoh said. Proposed changes include more and deeper dredging at some sites and “environmental improvements”. “The final plan will provide a longterm framework for our maintenance dredging program that is efficient, meets contemporary needs of recreational boat operators, and ensures our relevant statutory and environmental obligations are met,” Mr Teoh said. Facts sheets and details of community drop-in sessions are available on the Parks Victoria website. Comments must be submitted by email to dredging@parks.vic.gov.au by Monday 22 May.

Baton ‘legends’ NOMINATIONS are open for “local legends” to carry the Queen’s Baton when it visits the Mornington Peninsula next year as part of the Gold Coast 2018 Commonwealth Games relay. Three thousand eight hundred baton-bearers will carry the Queen’s Baton for 100 days across the country, visiting Sorrento on Monday 12 February. By nominating a baton-bearer their achievements won’t go unrecognised, Mornington Peninsula Shire said. Nominations close 11.59pm, Monday 15 May. Details: gc2018.com/qbr

Business case bid for car ferry Keith Platt keith@mpnews.com.au TENDERS are about to close for consultants to prepare “comprehensive business case” for a Cowes to Stony Point car ferry. An economic study produced six years ago put the overall cost of the project at $47 million and predicted it would lead to greater employment on Phillip Island and the Mornington, Peninsula during and after construction of two new terminals. The shires of Mornington Peninsula and Bass Coast are now awaiting their call for submission from consultants to prepare a business case. The state government has conributed $250,000 and the shires $25,000 each. There is nothing new about the ferry plan, and several studies have already been made this century, starting with a pre-feasibility study by consulting engineers Arup 2003, followed in 2008 by Bays and Maritime Initiative – Stony Point to Cowes Vehicle Ferry, by Maunsell Australia. In the July 2010 economic impact assessment commissioned by Bass Coast Essential Economics estimated the ferry service would carry 109,500 cars (323,000 passengers) in its first year increasing to 127,750 cars (375,000 passengers) in a decade. The mayor of Bass Coast Cr Pamela Rothfield said calling for a business case tender was “a big week for tourism”. The Essential Economics report was based on a 50-car ferry running from Stony Point and Cowes every two

hours between 8am and 5pm. The cost of building a new pier and infrastructure at Stony Point is put at $21m and $25.8m at Cowes. Both piers would be alongside the existing piers. The study says the car ferry would have “little impact” on the existing passenger ferry service, which also calls at French Island. The state government is this month expected to announce the winning tender for a new five-year contract for the passenger-

only service (“Island ferry out to tender” The News 21/3/17). The Essential Economics 2010 study said 285 effective full time jobs would be created during the construction phase of the terminals at Stony Point and Cowes which “will ensure continual low unemployment rates in Bass Coast and Mornington Peninsula, noting that both shires have relatively high proportions of resident workers occupied in construction-related activities”. The downside of the constructions

would include temporary disruption to some commercial, recreational and tourism activities and traffic conflicts. Once built, the ferries would require 14 full time staff and create 27 “indirect” full time jobs. An additional 98 jobs would be created in the wider tourism industry. The increased number of visitors to the peninsula and Phillip Island will see $14m injected into the local economies in the first year growing to $16.3m by the tenth year.

Poppies among the pages POPPIES picked on Flanders Fields, France, during WWI have been found in the pages of a book donated to the Victorian Maritime Centre Museum, Crib Point. Honorary member Norman Oates donated the book Seamanship Manual Vol I, 1932, to the museum among a number of items that had been left to him by his father, R J Oates. Mr Oates (senior) picked the poppies at Flanders Fields and pressed them in the book where they have remained ever since. The Victorian Maritime Centre’s Di Maloney said the poppies still showed tinges of red in their petals – even after 100 years inside the pages. “I was overcome when I saw them,” she said. “I knew it was something I will never forget. “I had a relative who fought there and these things bring it home to you.” Western Port Oberon Association president

Max Bryant said Norman Oates was born in 1931 in Birkenhead, England. “He donated a number of items to the museum, among them a book that belonged to his father. “Norman was at one stage an English policeman or “Bobby”. Leaving the police force he went to sea as an electrical engineer and sailed the world for many years, before migrating with his family to Australia. “He continued working on ships – but this time without going to sea – at ship maintenance companies. “This love of ships and the sea is what brought Norman into contact with the Western Port Oberon Association where he became an honorary member.” Mr Oates passed away on 14 July 2014 after a long fight with cancer.

Helping hands a lift for both sides RED Hill South resident Jill McLachlan retired from work just over 12 months ago but, wanting to do something that could make a difference to others, she investigated volunteering opportunities. “I had spent much of my working life supporting staff and mentoring younger women, a lot of who told me I was good at this sort of thing,” she said. “With some free time I thought I should find some volunteering work where I could use my skills to help others and provide me with a sense of fulfilment.” Ms McLachlan is one of about 36,000 residents – of 17.8 per cent of the Mornington Peninsula’s population – who volunteer some of their free time. During National Volunteer Week (8-14 May) organisations and communities will recognise those volunteers who work tirelessly for them, OzChild’s Glynis Smalley said. “It is an opportunity to thank those that provide a formidable workforce to many essential community, environmental, sporting, welfare, emergency services, education and cultural organisations. “Many organisations rely on volunteers to help deliver their programs. “There are many reasons why people volunteer their time. Often they want to find fulfillment, give back to a community that has supported them, pass on skills to the next generation, or gain skills that might lead to a paid job.” Ms McLachlan said she had been looking for something close to home and, having worked in the welfare sector, wanted a role that was “hands on” and allowed her to be involved with children. “I knew of the work of OzChild on the peninsula, having had a friend who

PAGE 12

Mornington News 9 May 2017

fostered children and others who had worked there in a professional capacity. They all spoke positively of OzChild and its work and culture so it seemed to be a prefect fit for me.” Ms McLachlan has been volunteering for just over 12 months, working with two families whom she visits every week. “I love it that no two weeks are the same, depending on the needs of the families I support,” she said. “Each visit can take two-to-four hours. I can also visit more than once a week if needed to accompany family members to appointments or take the children out to activities. “During the last school holidays I took the kids from both families out a few times: depending on the weather it could be to the beach, the pool, the park or somewhere indoors. “As well as spending time with my families I can also spend time each week preparing meals or activities to do with their kids, which I do in advance of my visits.” For those who are thinking of volunteering Ms McLachlan has some sound advice. “You should think about what you are good at and what skills you could use to help others,” she said. “Also think about what sorts of things you enjoy doing. “It helps to find someone who knows the organisation you are considering volunteering for and talk to them about what the organisation is like and what sorts of things they do. This will help you decide if your values align with theirs.” Visit .mornpen.vic.gov.au for information on volunteering.

Bunjil’s arrival signals reopening of Willum Warrain A STATUE of Bunjil – the wedgetailed eagle creator and spiritual being – now sits at the entrance to the Willum Warrain Aboriginal gathering place at Hastings. The unveiling of the statue on Friday was also timely in that it marked the recent reopening of the centre which had been closed due to lack of money. “This is a significant day for our mob,” Wullum Wirrain president Peter Aldenhoven said. “We have recently been closed for four and a half months as we temporarily had no funding for staff and operating costs. “This [its temporary closure] caused great dismay to our community. Now, with Bunjil sitting aloft on his entry perch, we can embrace the future with more confidence and security.” Mr Aldenhoven said the “gathering place” Willum Warrain which means “a home by the sea” in the Boon Wurrung language – is controlled by the Aboriginal community. “Located in a tranquil bush setting, Willum Warrain is a place of hope, belonging and cultural connection for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples living on the Mornington Peninsula.” He said there were more than 230 Aboriginal members and 130 non-indigenous “kin, friends and supporters”. “It is also a destination for reconciliation, regularly visited by people and groups wishing to engage with the local mob. Willum Warrain warmly welcomes all visitors to our special space,” Mr

Church seeks way to reopen op shop WHILE there is no shortage of volunteers wanting to get the Holy Trinity Anglican Church’s opportunity shop back in business, its reopening depends on engineers’ assessing the building’s “structural integrity and safety”. The op shop and adjoining church were gutted in an early morning blaze on Friday 31 March. Police have said they believe the fire was deliberately lit. “We are waiting for forensic investigators and structural engineers to complete their assessments of the structural integrity and safety of the building,” church warden Don Johnston said. “Once those reports are completed, we should know if rebuilding this historic old church will be possible, and in what form, though it might be a long and difficult task.” Three weeks after the fire the Rev Tim Anderson was commissioned as the church’s new vicar following the retirement last October of the Rev Alex Packett. After 12 years at Healesville Mr Anderson and his wife Cherida and their family have moved into the recently extended and renovated vicarage in Hastings. Mr Johnston said an “early challenge” for the new vicar “will involve helping the congregation rebuild the historic, original church building”. He said the building (church and op shop) at the corner of Chruch and King streets had been “a key place where members of the community connected and where funds were raised to support many local families and charitable causes”. The church was built about 1885 and

was one of the older buildings on the Mornington Peninsula. Another church warden, Geraldine Prowd, said members of the church “remember with fondness [attending] childhood Sunday School classes. It provided hope and comfort in the tough

times of wars and depression as well". David Glover, also a church warden, said alternative premises would be sought for the opportunity shop, “as we would not like to see an interruption to the funds we have been able to donate to local charities".

The parish council and its op shop coordinating team, at an emergency meeting, decided on trying to get the op shop up and running as soon as possible. The Rev Anderson said the church was not about buildings “but about

a community of people who love the Lord Jesus”. “ It’s our hope that this community, which is already strong at Holy Trinity, will continue to see the church as a focal point for worship and service to those in need, despite this setback.”

THE BAYS HOSPITAL

Scalp cooling for cancer patients at The Bays

A generous donation made to The Bays Hospital has enabled Mornington Peninsula residents to access scalp cooling during their cancer treatment, in an attempt to reduce their hair loss. This service was previously only available if they travelled to Brighton or further in to the city for their chemotherapy treatment. Patients are offered the complimentary use of this new technology at The Bays as part of their chemotherapy treatment, to reduce chemotherapy-induced hair loss. Scalp cooling has been offered for patients at Melbourne hospitals including Cabrini Brighton since 2015 and more recently Epworth Richmond, which is where many Mornington Peninsula patients have previously opted to travel for their treatment, in order to access scalp cooling. Breast Oncoplastic Surgeon Dr Joanna Morgan says the availability of scalp cooling for patients locally in Mornington will reduce the stress caused by having to travel for their chemotherapy treatment. “Prevention of hair loss during chemotherapy can bring significant psychological benefits. Many women will feel less noticeable and this enables them continue as much a normal life as possible during treatment, without having to discuss their cancer diagnosis. I am so pleased that women will now have the option to use scalp cooling at The Bays Hospital”, said Dr Morgan. McGrath Foundation Breast Care Nurse, Jo Lovelock adds “for many people, the fear of losing their hair as a result of their chemotherapy treatment is very distressing. Their hair loss makes it difficult to keep a cancer diagnosis private”. Typically women

Dr Joanne Lundy, Medical Oncologist explains that “the cap is fitted to the patient prior to their treatment and cools the scalp. The cap remains on for the duration of the treatment and for a short time afterwards. Cooling the scalp before, during and after each chemotherapy treatment, reduces blood flow and chemotherapy delivery to hair follicles which are rapidly dividing

cells – and therefore very susceptible to damage by chemotherapy”. According to recently published research, approximately 50 per cent of patients respond well to scalp cooling treatment for preventing hair loss. http://jamanetwork.com/journals/ jamaoncology/article-abstract/2603438 “Patients report that the caps are comfortable and with added comforts such as warm blankets, the scalp cooling is generally very tolerable

and patients feel it is well worth the extra treatment time for the results of minimizing their hair loss” said Dr Lundy. The Bays offers a comprehensive cancer care and support service for privately insured residents on the Mornington Peninsula The new purpose-designed Day Infusion Unit opened in 2016 and features state of the art treatment chairs and equipment in a modern space with

Wood turning magic

THE GUILD was formed in 1984 with objectives of: • Bringing people together interested in all facets of the craft; • Expanding the interest in the craft by developing the talents of members through lectures, demonstrations and workshop experience; and • Bringing the craft to the wider population through exhibitions, workshops etc. Membership grew from humble beginnings to over 200 and the Guild now has its own demonstration/ meeting area with audio visual facilities and a dedicated workshop with a number of lathes, and associated equipment where training sessions are held for members, under the guidance of tutors, 6 days per week. The Guild is a self-funded organisation and regularly holds demonstrations and exhibitions

at outside locations. The first of the biennial competitions was held in 1991. These are conducted as a focus for members to enhance their skills and have their items adjudicated by professional woodturners, the woodturning community, and the general public. The initial competitions were modest affairs but are now held in public facilities with dignitaries invited to officially open and attend the exhibitions. Entries are from beginner woodturners, intermediate, to those very experienced and talented and many of the entrants advance to prominence in national competitions. The cost of running these events are covered by the members, sponsors, raffles and a modest entry fee. In 2017 there will be nearly 1000 items on display.

The Biggest Morning Tea takes to the sea SEAROAD Ferries is teaming up with the Cancer Council to raise vital funds for cancer research, prevention and support programs by taking Australia’s Biggest Morning Tea to Port Phillip Bay on Friday 26 May 2017. Departing from Sorrento at 11am, Searoad Ferries’ inaugural Biggest Morning Tea will see passengers enjoy a 4-hour Port Phillip Bay sailing and delicious morning tea, serving up sweet and savoury morsels sourced from the Bellarine and Mornington Peninsulas. The event will be hosted by comedian, Andrew Iles, with live music, auctions, lucky door prizes, and a mystery raffle providing further entertainment. All proceeds from the auctions and raffle, as well as 50% of the ticket price, will be donated to the Cancer Council. Now in its 24th year, Biggest Morning Tea is one of the Cancer Council’s leading fundraising events. In 2017, with the help of hosts such as Searoad Ferries, the Cancer Council aims to raise $13 million to support those affected by cancer.

Searoad Ferries CEO, Matt McDonald, said the idea to host a Biggest Morning Tea onboard Searoad Ferries came from some of the ferry employees. “We have been so inspired by the enthusiasm, initiative and dedication shown by the staff to get our first Biggest Morning Tea fundraiser off the ground,” Matt said. “Cancer is something that affects us all at some point in time. We are proud to support such an important cause and a great organisation in the Cancer Council. We are really excited about our first Biggest Morning Tea and with the support of the community, hope it is something we can continue into the future,” he said.

day for families to enjoy. It’s always great to be a part of community events and meet the locals.” “Demand for Large Format Retail centres is increasing. Consumers are particularly attracted to the high level of competition on price, range and service available from the large format retailers compared to that of traditional retailers,” said Philippa Kelly from the LFRA. “Not only do they want low prices and easy access to retailers at the one location, they also demand parking facilities so they can travel by car and transport goods home themselves,” she added.

Vendor Review - Recommended by OliviaBurke Sold on 27th February, 2017 When I first met with Sue and Malcolm, I immediately felt at ease with them. Sue did a detailed report of the property and spent a lot of time with me during a difficult time of selling a deceased estate. During a stressful time of back and forth with other family members, Sue was a calming influence on me. After less than a week on the market, the property sold for the price we wanted. I highly recommend Sue as she is not only very good at her job, she is a genuine person with wonderful communication.

IN the industrial heart of Mornington, this prominent building on the corner of Kenji Street and Fuji Crescent offers two separate titles to be sold as one. Providing two storeys of quality office and warehouse space, this address benefits from excellent access for larger vehicles, great exposure to passing traffic and plenty of natural light. A fine investment, the property in Fuji Crescent is leased to an ASX listed tenant and has an annual return of about $40,000 per year. The second property in Kenji Street is available now with vacant possession for either a tenant or owner-occupier. There is about 172 square metres of clear-span warehouse, a small production office and staff amenities. Fully leased, these two properties could potentially generate a passing income of some $60,000 per annum (plus GST and outgoings) and on a purchase price of $1,000,000 this represents about a 6% yield.

Cannabis crop seized after fire MORE than 900 marijuana plants were seized in a raid on a Seaford factory, Thursday 4 May. The crop came to light when firemen arrived to extinguish a small blaze – ironically started when an illegal hydroponic set-up heating the plants caught fire. A passer-by saw smoke and called 000. Detective Sergeant Peter Morris, of Frankston CIU, said he “could not put a value on the crop at this early stage” as the plants were at varying stages of maturity. “It was an elaborate set-up covering the entire floor,” he said. The factory, on the corner of Rutherford, Lathams and Stephenson roads, had been tenanted six months. Detectives had spoken to the owner and were searching for the tenants, Friday.

100 YEARS AGO THIS WEEK...

Private Dent writes on his way to the war Compiled by Cameron McCullough LETTERS from the Front. The following letter has been received by Miss W. Scarborough from Pte Dent:– Just a line to let you know how I am getting on. We had a good trip over, the water being like a piece of glass all the way. –– is a pretty place. The scenery is beautiful, far better that Australia. The people gave us a grand reception, giving us free meals and free tram rides all the time we were there. I can tell you we did it in great. At the next port of call, the people were altogether different to what they were in –– We had nothing free. All we got there we had to pay for. Our next port was another pretty place. It has only a small harbour. We could not get off the boat and had to stay there another three days till we coaled up, and then we made our way to where we are now. We had to wear life belts day and night while on the boat. It is very cold here being their winter. It is far colder than Australia. *** SKATING was held in the Somerville Hall on Saturday night, last and there was a splendid attendance. *** A MEETING of the Frankston branch of the National Federation will be held in the Mechanics’ on Monday evening next, at 8 o’clock sharp. A good attendance of members is requested. ***

Mr S. S. Gault, of Somerville, having secured an auctioneer’s licence, will hold his first sale at Somerville on Thursday next, when he will offer pigs, poultry, cattle, horses, and sundries. Further entries invited. *** IN reporting the celebration of Anzac Day at the Somerville State School, the name, of Mr Geo. Shepherd was accidentally left out. Mr Geo. Shepherd showed the scholars a lot of war mementoes, which were sent to him by his son, Frank, when on active service on Gallipoli. *** IN our report of the Church of England Floral Fete last week we omitted to mention the Produce stall among the list, which was under the supervision of Mrs J. Wells, and also Miss Ruby Barclay’s name was inadverdently left out as assistant at the Refreshment stall. *** WOODS’ Great Peppermint Cure. For Coughs and Colds, never fails, 1s 6d. *** A EUCHRE party and dance was held in the Hall, on Thursday evening and proved highly successfull. Cards were commenced at 8.30 and continued till 10.30, when it was found that the same number of points were held by several parties. In the final play off Miss W. Rogers secured first lady’s prize, and Private Pentland first for gentlemen. The booby prizes were won by Miss Francis, and Mr McSweeney. Hot coffee and cakes were provided

and very much appreciated. Dancing was continued till 2 o’clock and a thoroughly enjoyable time spent. Mr Brierley supplied the music in a satisfactory manner. The “Wattle” Club purposes holding a continuous euchre tournament throughout the winter months, commencing the week after next. Mrs Deane and Mrs Moloney are donating the prizes for this tournament which will be well worth winning. As the object is a good one–for funds to continue the entertainments for returned soldiers–and a good evening’s enjoyment is provided for a very humble sum, the members hope to see a full house on the next occasion when all will get a fair start to gain the coveted prize. *** Our Letter Box. FORESHORE PRIVILEGES TO THE EDITOR. Sir.–Though not in the least desirous of entering into a newspaper controversy I crave space in your valuable journal in order to allay any misapprehension that may have been caused by Mr Utber’s letter on this subject, dated 3rd inst. First, Sir, permit me to say that I feel sure Mr Utber believes he is acting in the interests of the residents, and he deserves credit for his public spirit in endeavouring to redress a wrong (even though it is, as I contend, only imaginary.) In criticising Mr G. E. Thomas’s boat house, in which he occasionally housed his motor car overnight, as reported by me to the Council.

Mr Utber is very frank in informing your readers that “on the seaward side the only means of ingress is a small door only 2 feet wide which no boat could pass, and that the floor level is 3 feet above the sand level.” He thus seeks to prove that the building could not be used as a boat house. He omits to state that there are two large doors at the other end of the building sufficiently wide to admit either a motor car or a boat and that the floor at this end is at ground level. If Mr Thomas cares to put a boat in through the landward end of the building whose business is it but his own? It certainly is no one else’s. I am at a loss to understand Mr Utber’s contention that, if people are allowed the privelege of housing their motor cars in well built boxes or houses on the foreshore, at places selected by the council “the beauty of the foreshore would be a thing of the past etc.” Seeing that there are already, on the foreshore, scores of ramshakle buildings, which no respectable hen would own for a shelter, but, because they are dignified by the appellation of ‘bathing boxes” Mr Utber has no objection to them. The criticism of Mr Anderson’s boat houses and bathing box under Oliver’s Hill is still more unreasonable. In the first portion of his letter the writer fears for the beauty of the foreshore; in the next breath he emphasizes the fact that “the building is well lighted and finished, with a nice little tank attached and with seats and a movable table inside”, as if this constituted the building’s gravest offence.

What harm is the nice little tank doing? Apparently it has never occurred to the writer that some people, after sea bathing, have a desire for a fresh water shower, or that after handling dirty boats, fish etc, they would like to wash their hands. That being so, the only way by which they can obtain fresh water (unless they carry it about with them) is by having a tank attached to their boat house. And why on earth should these unfortunate people not have seats and a table in their bathing box if they see fit to do so? What crime do they commit by partaking of cakes and tea, either hot or cold therein ? I have always endeavoured to carry out the duties of my numerous offices in a fair and impartial manner and to interfere with respectable citizens as little as possible. It would be gross impertenance on my part were I to endeavour to prevent persons from drinking afternoon tea in their boat houses or bathing boxes, and I feel sure that any fair-minded resident will agree with me. There is no law to prevent them doing so, and Mr Utber, as a lawyer, must know it as well as I do. Yours faithfully, EDWIN C RYAN Shire Inspector, May 8th, 1917. *** From the pages of the Mornington Standard, 12 May 1917

THE MEANING OF EXISTENCE... AND OTHER SHORT STORIES

How Tyabb will swallow the universe By Stuart McCullough FORGET everything you thought you knew about Tyabb. I, for one, thought I knew quite a bit the place, mostly because I grew up there. In my lifetime, there have been some notable changes. The town has gone from not having any traffic lights at all to having two sets and now boasts its own tattoo parlour. Surely a multi-storey carpark is inevitable. But despite these major advancements, Tyabb has been downgraded and officially reclassified as a ‘remote’ township. At least, that was the reason given to my father when they cut off his newspaper deliveries. For decades, my father had both papers home delivered. And by ‘home delivered’, I don’t mean delivered to his house but lobbed out the window of a passing car so that they’re somewhere up near the top of the driveway. If that seems like splitting hairs on the whole ‘home delivery’ thing, it’s worth noting that the driveway is roughly half a kilometre long. Each morning, the dog would take my father for a walk and, between the pair of them; they’d collect the day’s newspapers. Having now retired, my father would duly pore over the contents of Melbourne’s major dailies, cutting out key articles that would then be distributed amongst my siblings and me. But not anymore. Recently, my father was told that he was too remote and that his newspapers would no longer be delivered. This came as something of a shock. Being reclassified as ‘remote’ demands a whole range of adjustments to suit the circumstances. For starters,

my father will need to get himself at least one camel, if not two. Known as the ships of the desert, these creatures are the preferred mode of transport for many in remote Australia. It is not too difficult to imagine my father sitting astride a camel and heading of at speed to the Coles at Hastings for a litre of milk and a barbecue chicken. Given that the powers that be have relegated Tyabb to ‘remote’ status and decided that it’s too far to drive, perhaps some kind of air-drop could be arranged. Luckily, Tyabb has its own airport and it’s not too much to expect that crucial supplies should be parachuted in on a regular basis. The pilot would, of course, need to take care to avoid accidentally sconing one of the camels. If the newspapers are to be delivered by air, then there’s no reason

why other staples like bread, fuel and any antique furniture my father’s had his eye on for some time could not also be flown in. If it helps, my father’s more than willing to build an airstrip. This will negate the need to drop supplies with a parachute and the inevitable inaccuracy that comes with it. Nobody wants to spend their day knee-deep in the long grass wondering where that day’s Herald Sun has ended up. An airstrip is the obvious solution. Besides, there’s already a cricket pitch up next to the shed, near the little dam. It wouldn’t take too much to extend the pitch by a few hundred metres to accommodate small aircraft. The prospect of an aeroplane coming in to land would have the added benefit of adding some much-needed excitement to post-lunch

games of back yard cricket. My father will also need to update his wardrobe. Out go the gumboots, tracksuit pants and the t-shirt that reads: ‘Wham! The Big Tour’, to be replaced by R.M. William pants, cowboy boots, stockwhip and a verandasized Akubra hat. Wednesdays will no longer just be ‘bin night’ but will be rechristened ‘the rubbish muster’. We’ll need to sink a bore. Maybe herd the livestock using a helicopter that looks as if it’s been assembled from a kit. My only regret in all of this is that Tyabb’s reclassification comes too late. Had it been considered ‘remote’ when I was still living there, I could have attended to all my educational needs through the ‘School of the Air’ and avoided having to go to class proper. But here’s the rub. A short time ago,

Tyabb was not too far to go to deliver newspapers. If Tyabb is now remote, the only logical explanation is that Tyabb is expanding. So whilst advances in technology mean the world is now smaller than ever, Tyabb is getting bigger. If this continues unchecked, the rate of expansion might materially increase meaning that Tyabb starts to overwhelm the rest of the planet. Within weeks, Tyabb might become the nation’s capital. By mid-year, we’ll be casting a shadow that reaches all the way to North Korea if not beyond. By the end of winter, Tyabb may be so gigantic that it threatens to overwhelm the Universe. The irony of all this is, of course, that the residents of Tyabb will be blissfully unaware. Or, if not the residents of the entire town, then certainly my father. Because news of Tyabb’s continuing upscaling and threatened absorption of the broader universe is something that would, doubtless, be reported breathlessly by all the major newspapers. Barring an aerial drop, my father will continue to exist in a news-free zone and won’t be aware of Tyabb’s exponential expansion including the very real possibility that this may overwhelm the world as we know it, creating a black-hole into which all life and matter will be sucked before disappearing forever. Instead, he and the dog will continue to walk each morning to the top of the drive and look at the spot where, once upon a time not so very long ago, newspapers were delivered. stuart@stuartmccullough.com Mornington News 9 May 2017

Dr. Tony Stubbs, Eye Surgeon, says that just about anyone can have their vision restored and be rid of their glasses for most of the time. And this is without the use of laser surgery. Dr Stubbs, a visiting specialist at the Royal Victorian Eye & Ear Hospital who has worked with the Fred Hollows eye department at the Prince of Wales Hospital in Sydney, says he began his career through the inspiration of his father, Dr Maxwell Stubbs. â&#x20AC;&#x153;My father was a pioneer in cataract implant surgery from 1963! He has now passed away but some of his patients still come in for a check-up. Not only is this inspirational, it also demonstrates that good surgery outlasts the surgeon,â&#x20AC;? Dr Stubbs says. A specialist who helps people who have been advised they are unsuitable for laser surgery, Dr Stubbs is also committed to demonstrating that age, corneal distortion or astigmatism are no barriers to eliminating the need for glasses. One of my best moments was treating a 12-year-old girl who was struggling at school because of poor vision due to congenital cataracts even with the use of thick glasses. Now 10 years later, she still has 20/20 vision without glasses. That inspires me. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Seeing my patientsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; bright smiles after surgery, as they stop squinting and can read without glasses, is deďŹ nitely the best part of my job.â&#x20AC;?

Coach: Dog house performance ‘putrid’ PENINSULA LEAGUE

By Toe Punt IT took Mornington until the 16-minute mark of the final quarter to kick its one and only goal against Pines in MPNFL Peninsula Division on Saturday. Billed as the match of the day, it was anything but that as Mornington struggled to get out of a canter. Pines steamrolled the Dogs in every aspect of the game and in many instances, made the opposition look second rate. The score line of 13.14 (92) to 1.5 (11) was a true reflection of the contest. Doggies coach Chris Holcombe described the performance of his side as “putrid”. Holcombe said the team was made to “look slow and disinterested”. Earlier in the day on the RPP Footy Show, Holcombe said that his side was much better placed this season than last and he was excited about taking on Pines at Pines. Fast forward a few hours and Mornington suffered its worst loss in recent memory. Holcombe agreed that it “was the worst performance from a Mornington side that I have seen since I arrived at the club more than 15 years ago”. Take nothing away from Pines though. Pines was well-structured, organised, committed and confident with ball in hand. It was a far cry from what it rolled out against YCW the week before although Pines was very ordinary against YCW, couldn’t have played much worse and still only lost by four goals.

Tim Bongetti and Aaron Edwards both came into the weekend’s game under an injury cloud but both impressed and booted seven goals between them. Luke Potts in the middle of the ground was arguably the best player on the park while Nick Boswell absolutely dominated from half back. It took Mornington until midway through the last quarter to put a stopper on Boswell – it was way too late. Corey Ash got the lockdown role on the dangerous Joel Miller and beat him, while Lachy Marshall and Jacob Boyle were super impressive. Guy and Beau Hendry, along with Ben Thomas, completely shut down the Dogs forwards in Jackson Calder, Dale Whelan and Peter McGettigan. Calder only had a touch when he was

moved back. McGettigan kicked the only Dogs’ goal and Whelan was nowhere to be seen. Warwick Miller was head and shoulders better than any other Mornington player while Kalen Bird tried hard also. The Dog’s backs were under enormous pressure and Ryan Smith and Troy Kirwan did pretty well under the circumstances. Seaford moved into the top three with a solid second half performance against Bonbeach. While yours truly predicted before a ball had been bounced this season that Seaford would be the bolter, it was always going to take a game like this one against Bonbeach to get a true indication. At half time, the jury was still out –

the score was 2.11 to 2.4 with the Tigers winning more footy but not converting. The Tigers though booted five unanswered goals in the third quarter and booted a further five in the last to Bonbeach’s one to win 12.14 (86) to 3.10 (28). The Sharks were kept scoreless in the third quarter. Damian Rayson arrived with big wraps this season and completely dominated on Saturday with three goals. Rourke Fischer is back to his best and Dean Williamson is one of the best players in the competition. They were all dominant on Saturday. Matt Douglas and Owen Hulett were the best of the Sharks, while Jackson Casey continues to put a case forward

for an interleague call-up. Chelsea made it two wins on the trot with a hard fought 7.14.56 to 8.5.53 win against Karingal. The Gulls set-up the win with a three goal to zip first quarter. Karingal made a run in the last, keeping Chelsea goalless but four points was enough to give the home side a victory. Daly Shannon was arguably the best player on the ground while James Brain and Simon Mitchelhill were also outstanding in the win. Jake Kelly and Aisea Valenti were the best of the Bulls while Damian Ashcroft booted three goals and was lively. Frankston YCW remains undefeated at the top of the ladder after knocking over Edithvale, 16.15 (111) to 12.5 (77). The Stonecats had a number of their VFL-listed players running around, including Lachy Wallace, who booted four goals and BJ Credlin, who dominated across half back. Macklin Raine also dominated for the Stonecats and there’s no question that he’s ready to take over the mantle of Ash Eames when the time comes. Steve Mannix and Craig Wray were the best of the Eagles. Mt Eliza got the four points against Langwarrin. The game didn’t reach any great heights with the Mounties keeping Langwarrin goalless in the opening half. The margin was 33 points at the big break. The Kangas responded a little more in the second half, booting four goals to Mt Eliza’s six but still went down 11.13 (79) to 4.11 (35).

‘The great divide’ widens across league NEPEAN LEAGUE

By Toe Punt THE divide between the best and worst teams in MPNFL Nepean division is widening, with a number of big blowouts on Saturday. Despite wet and windy conditions, the better sides in the competition still booted big scores and restricted the lesser sides to tough afternoons. Sorrento booted 24 goals against Pearcedale, Frankston kicked 17 majors against Rye, Hastings kicked 18 goals against Crib Point and Red Hill nailed 20 goals against Tyabb. Five of the six matches were blow-outs with Devon Meadows and Somerville predictably the closest match of the round. After just five rounds, we can draw a line through Tyabb, Crib Point, Rye and Pearcedale in 2017, while the Meadows and Somerville are just behind the top five. Sorrento, Hastings, Frankston, Red Hill and Rosebud, in no particular order, appear to be the teams most likely to play finals in 2017. Red Hill’s clash against Hastings in Round six in two weeks, up at the hill, will determine whether the Hillmen are the real deal. On Saturday, Red Hill had 40 scoring shots to Tyabb’s eight and won 20.20 (140) to 6.2 (38). The first half was reasonably tight, the Hillmen leading by just 26 points. However, the visitors booted seven goals in the third quarter and a further six in the last. The Hillmen also rolledout a new player in the reserves, Shane Bloomfield, a former star forward of

It’s too easy: Pines smashed Mornington in the Peninsula League on Saturday. Pictures: Andrew Hurst

the Geelong FL, who dominated against the MPNFL when it last player the GFL in interleague footy a few years ago. Bloomfield kicked 1.5 in the reserves in his first game in 12 months. He is expected to play one more in the twos before joining Ben Hughes deep in the Red Hill forward line. Hastings and Crib Point is usually a hotly contested game regardless of the where the neighbouring clubs are on the ladder – Saturday was a fizzer. The game was tight at quarter time when the Blues led by two points, however, the visi-

tors booted 17 goals to six after the first change to win 18.17 (125) to 6.8 (44). Jay Reynolds booted five goals and Scott Foster four majors in Frankston Bombers’ 17.19 (121) to 3.8 (26) win against Rye. The Bombers booted 9.12 to 1.3 in the first half and should have been much further in front. Josh Francis with a couple of majors and Jarryd Amalfi dominated for the Bombers while skipper Mitch Bosward was also at his best. Adam Kirkwood and Harry Witty were the best of the Demons while Leigh Morse continues

to play well for them. Sorrento had 42 scoring shots to Pearcedale’s 11 on Saturday at Tractor Park, again highlighting the great divide between the best and the worst. The most exciting thing to happen at Pearcedale, besides Sorrento dominating the scoreboard, was Melbourne players Max Gawn and Jack Trengove sitting in the back of a ute with a dog watching their old teammates Luke Tapscott and Chris Dawes run around for the Sharks. Somerville had 23 scoring shots to Devon Meadows’ 21 on Saturday but

lost the game 6.17 (53) to 8.13 (61). At half-time, the Eagles had booted 1.10 to the home side’s 3.7. Bad kicking is bad footy and despite the Eagles having chances to win the game, Devon Meadows won its third game on the trot. Dromana’s woes continued, smashed by Rosebud to the tune of 56 points. The Tigers can thank Rosebud’s inaccuracy in front of goal that it was able to lose by less than 10 goals. The Buds led 5.11 to 3.5 at half time and by the end of the match, it was 12.20 (92) to 5.6 (36).

Langy keeper’s master class keeps Saints at bay SOCCER

By Craig MacKenzie LANGWARRIN remained on top of the State 1 South-East ladder after downing St Kilda 2-0 at Lawton Park on Saturday. Gus Macleod’s side now faces a crunch fixture against second-placed outfit Caulfield United Cobras at Victory Park next weekend. Langy’s new Scottish signing Liam Baxter took just three minutes to make a major impact last weekend when he skinned an opponent on the left and surged into the penalty area before watching his cutback deflected by Sam Sweeney for an own goal. Big George Whiteoak was at the near post to head home Connor Belger’s corner in the 30th minute. Langy captain Boris Ovcin was sent off after receiving a second caution in the 58th minute and despite St Kilda dominating possession the second half belonged to Langy keeper Robbie Acs. The experienced custodian put on a master class in reaction saves highlighted by parrying Sweeney’s penalty attempt in the 79th minute and smothering the rebound. Star Langy defender Keiron Kenny should finally return from the UK this week and is expected to be rushed straight into Saturday’s matchday squad along with veteran striker Caleb Nicholes who played in the reserves last weekend following his Kokoda Trail trek. Mornington’s stuttering championship defence continued when it lost 2-1 at home to South Springvale last Saturday. Former Port Melbourne star Bonel Obradovic broke clear in the 18th minute and despite a superb double save from Mornington keeper Kris McEvoy the ball fell to Obradovic a third time and he made no mistake. The visitors went 2-0 up in the 48th minute after Michael Kariuki ran onto a through ball on the right of the penalty area and struck a low shot that beat a diving McEvoy at the near post. A superb Chris Reid free kick in the 80th minute got the home side back into the contest but it proved to be too little too late. “We’ll set some targets for the next five weeks and we’ll remain positive,” said Mornington boss Adam Jamieson. Mornington is in talks with two NPL players and is hoping to snare three newcomers in total when the transfer window opens later this month. Peninsula Strikers defeated Frankston Pines 1-0 in their State 2 South-East derby on Saturday. The pivotal moment came in the 68th minute. Veteran forward Trevor Johnston should have put Strikers ahead a minute earlier but struck the far post and Pines were still trying to get organised at the back when Johnston was again in a scoring situation and he made no mistake this time smashing the ball past Pines keeper Alfonso Cardinale from close range. Johnston’s elaborate celebration took him towards the stand in the outer where Strikers senior coach Craig Lewis and assistant Billy Buchanan were serving one-match touchline bans for being sent off the previous week against Seaford United.

Yet Pines had created the best two chances of the first half. In the 6th minute, Strikers keeper Colin McCormack was forced to smother after Jack Wrobel had broken through on the right and in the 20th minute, Graham Hill should have at least got his free header on target following a corner to the back post. The closest Strikers came was from Danny Brooks’ 12th-minute free kick that forced Cardinale to dive down low and tip the ball wide of the far post. Luke Murray’s second caution in the 60th minute ended his involvement in the contest and Hill joined him in injury time with a second yellow card. In between McCormack was forced to parry a sizzling long-range strike by Ben Millward and Leandro Parrella wasted a fine overlap from substitute Tom Hawkins on the right by blasting his shot over from 10 metres. There may be news on the transfer front from Centenary Park later this week. Harry McCartney reports that State 2 South-East outfit Seaford United went down fighting in their 3-0 home loss to Mazenod on Saturday. In the 25th minute, a long ball from Matty Morris-Thomas over the Mazenod defence saw Mitch Lander run past the visiting back four to slot the opener, only to be disallowed by the linesmen flagging for offside much to the disbelief of the home crowd. In the 35th minute, Lander broke down the right and his cross was met by Alex Roberts whose shot forced Mazenod keeper Nick Van Hattam into a sharp save down to his left. In the 40th minute, a scrappy shot from Vince

Vasquez seemed easy pickings for Seaford keeper Patrick Bretherton before the wet ball skidded under his hands and slowly dribbled into the Seaford net for an embarrassing opener. The pressure by Mazenod in the second half was telling and Adrian D’Ortenzio’s sided footed cross gave Colin Stewart an easy tap in from close range to make it 2-0. But Seaford deserves credit for continuing to create chances until injury time when Nick D’Angelo was clipped inside the area and his brother Robert D’Angelo had no problem converting from the penalty spot. Skye United blew a two-goal cushion and had to settle for a 2-2 draw at home to South Yarra on Saturday. The result saw Skye slip to third on the State 3 South-East ladder with a game in hand. In the 35th minute Skye’s Michael Putson took a quick free kick and sent Jason Nowakowski through and he rounded the keeper before slotting the ball home from a tight angle to open the scoring. In the 70th minute, English import Jacob ScotteHatherly finished well from outside the area to make it 2-0. But South Yarra’s Luke Atkinson was unmarked and pulled one back just five minutes later and the visitors were rewarded for their pressure when Vincent Hetherington finished well from inside the box following a long throw in the 89th minute. Baxter’s 3-0 victory in Saturday’s State 4 South home clash with Endeavour Hills Fire was earned via a dominant first half display. Dan Disseldorp’s through ball sent Liam Kilner clear in the 20th minute and he slotted the ball past Endeavour keeper Stuart Tolmie to make it 1-0.

A long-range strike by teenager Travis Ernsdoerfer thumped off the crossbar in the 29th minute and shortly after Jack Gallagher’s strike rebounded off Tolmie allowing Mark Pagliarulo to make it 2-0. It was game, set and match in the 44th minute after Disseldorp scored from close range following a corner. The best aspect of the second half from a Baxter perspective was Francis Beck’s clean sheet. Rosebud Heart is a shadow of the side that won every league game last year and its 4-2 home loss to Keysborough in their State 4 South fixture last weekend was its fourth loss this season. Dave Greening (22nd minute) and Cory Osorio (68th) scored for Heart while Keysborough’s goals came from Nemanja Salamandic (28th, 68th), Nicolas Jaque (63rd) and substitute Victor Pinto (penalty 90th). Somerville Eagles eventually succumbed to Dandenong Warriors 4-0 away from home last weekend. Eagles keeper Toby Lawson had to be replaced after 15 minutes due to a knee injury and striker Neil Herd took over in goal. Despite Herd’s fine display the Warriors ran out comfortable victors due to goals from David Baraka (61st minute), Michael Bowen (75th), Tom Cikoratic (80th) and substitute Laku Laku (85th). Somerville lost Paul Walker and David Hughes to Baxter last week but three new players, including an Irish striker, are due to train with the club this week. Kevin McCormack and Jarryd Lymer are likely inclusions in this weekend’s matchday squad to face Sandown Lions. Local women’s NPL consortium Southern United creates history when it takes its home game on Mother’s Day, Sunday 14 May, to Gippsland.

Gifted juniors outrun senior athletes By Ben Triandafillou MORNINGTON Peninsula junior athletes, Ky Davies and Dylan Burrows, received winning sashes after defeating experienced competitors at the 2017 Stawell Gift Athletics Carnival. The secondary school students competed in the 550m and 1600m open events at Stawell on Sunday 16 April and weren’t daunted by the older and more experienced competitors, Ky’s father Paul Davies said. “They have both won state titles and represented Victoria at the national level which has probably given them the confidence to run in these open events,” Mr Davies said. Ky won the 1600m Victory Restricted Handicap final in four minutes and 10 seconds narrowly defeating Richard Wade, with just a one second gap between them.

While Burrows, a Peninsula School student, took out the 550m Grampians Estate WH Earle Handicap in just over a minute, receiving a chunk of the $2850 total prize money on offer. “They’re constantly improving and making their personal bests better and better,” Mr Davies said. The Mornington Little Athletics, who Burrows and Davies have both competed for, also had a group of runners at the Stawell Gift Carnival, with 13 juniors competing. One junior, Taj Westworth, had a stand-out carnival making it into the finals of two events, finishing second in the Telstra Store Little Athletics 100m sprint and sixth in the 400m final. Ky’s younger brother, Taj Davies, 13, also competed at the Stawell Carnival finishing sixth in the 800m final and seventh in the 1600m event.

The Pines will receive funding under the Victorian 2017-18 budget and are hoping to begin the upgrades next year.

“We’re proud to be building the first ever dedicated female change rooms at Monterey Reserve,” Mr Edbrooke said. “Women deserve the same opportunities as men, and with record numbers of women and girls signing up to play local sport, we’re making sure our facilities are up to scratch.” The new modern change rooms will also provide the Southern United Football Club female teams with another pitch to use for matches and training.

By Ben Triandafillou FOR most people, golf’s main aim is to score the lowest possible card, but for stableford competitors, it’s the bigger, the better. Shooting a near-50 stableford round is one of the many achievements in golf, which, one experienced Mount Martha golfer has accomplished after an exceptional round of golf last month. Life member of the Mount Martha Golf Club, William (Bill) Lee, managed to score a stableford round of 52 points just weeks after turning 91.

Teeing off with a handicap of 30, Bill showed that age was no issue putting together an 84-stroke round off 18 holes at the Mount Martha Public Golf Course. “It’s quite rare to score a 52 but it was just one of those days where I had a purple patch”, a modest Bill Lee said. “I had three birdies and 84 off the stick, everything just worked.” Bill has been a member of the Mount Martha Golf Club for more than 30 years and has been an active member with his wife Joyce in building, fund-

raising and social activities. “I used to play at Waverley Private but joined the Mount Martha Golf Club many years ago as we used to visit friends down here,” Lee said. Lee has continually contributed to the Mount Martha Golf Club, captaining their side for four years, being an assistant manager and a vice-captain as well as working on the committee for many years. Still as interested as ever, Lee plays twice a week at the Mount Martha Golf Course and says that it’s the companionship at the club that draws him back each time.

RPP to call at the ‘G’ INTERLEAGUE

By Toe Punt RADIO station RPP will be the host broadcaster of Saturday’s WorkSafe AFL Victoria Community Championships match at the MCG on 13 May. The second-ranked Mornington Peninsula Nepean Football League Sharks will tackle the number one team in state footy, Geelong Football League (GFL), starting at 3pm and for those not heading to the ‘G’ will be able to tune-in to 98.7 or 98.3FM to hear all the action. The RPP team, anchored by Andrew ‘Toe Punt’ Kelly, will be joined by Geelong Football League experts, giving listeners a balanced view of the match. MPNFL Sharks coach John Hynes expected to announce the final squad on Monday or Tuesday this week for Saturday’s match. “The boys have been together for months now and we wanted to ensure that we respected their commitment and journey to get here right to the final week,” Hynes said. “We have added some players along the journey and as I’ve said all along, we will pick the best in-form team possible. Whilst we recognise those who have been great servants of the MPNFL and interleague footy, it’s important that we pick the best possible side that is in form right now.” Hynes said there were a handful of players who didn’t play club footy at the weekend to ensure they were right for Saturday’s match at the MCG. GFL Interleague coach Jeremy Dyer revealed just over a week ago that a couple of big names had run out of time to put their hands up for selection for

the Interleague squad. Dyer, who led the GFL to the number one ranking in last year’s championships, said the early scheduling of the game had given the coaching staff little choice but to leave players out. Surprisingly though, the GFL only started its campaign in mid-April. When the GFL smashed the MPNFL a few years ago, it was because of their preparation that created the divide. What that did was spark action from John Hynes to announce the squad at the beginning of the year and start training immediately. The MPNFL has been training together for four months. Dyer said stars including St Joseph’s and ex-Geelong VFL playmaker Kieren Paliouras, and recently retired Brisbane Lion and Geelong Cat Trent West, were not selected as their form in the opening two rounds didn’t warrant selection. Another shock was the non-selection of Daniel Lovick, the St Joseph’s defender widely regarded as one of the finest ever to play in the GFL. Lovick has only missed two Interleague clashes since 2009. GFL has selected a squad featuring many youngsters, most of whom are making their first appearances in a senior Interleague squad. Seven players are 20 years old or younger- a deliberate tactic according to Dyer. “I believe Interleague is a platform to bigger things for the boys if they want it, whether they’ve got aspirations to go higher or not to further their footy path.” Dyer said the crop of youngsters, including former Falcons captain Jack Blood, St Joseph’s livewire Jacko McLaughlin and the VFL development squad listed Jonathon Arcoraci, aren’t just in there to make up the numbers.

Girl power: South East Development League kicked off this weekend with their first round. Above, Cerberus/Crib Point thrashed Frankston Dolphins 24.24 (168) to 2.0 (12). Right: Seaford went down to Officer by 31 points. Below: Karingal only managed one major in their defeat against Warragul, going down by 33 points. Pictures: Andrew Hurst
