Facelift for playing fields YOUNG athletes and soccer players were at Civic Reserve, Mornington on Friday to officially signal the beginning of a $3 million revitalisation project. Works have been underway for several weeks on the redevelopment of the home of Mornington Little Aths and the Mt Martha Soccer Club. Work is expected to be completed by October 2019. The athletics track is costing $2 million while $1 million has been allocated to soccer. The money, which comes from Mornington Peninsula Shire and the federal government, capped a week of pledges made to sports clubs in the lead up to the 24 November state election. Brodie Cowburn

Alarm raised over fire threat Stephen Taylor steve@mpnews.com.au BUSHFIRES classed as “catastrophic in consequence and of extreme risk” are “almost certain” at some stage on the Mornington Peninsula – possibly this summer. Areas threatened by this nightmare scenario described in a fire management plan adopted by Mornington Peninsula Shire are the Arthurs Seat lookout and maze, parts of Blairgowrie near Pt Nepean Road and along the Stony Point and Frankston-Flinders roads to Stony Point. Other areas “almost certain” to burn with “major” consequences are the Joseph Harris Scout Camp in Hearn Road, Mt Martha, the high voltage

transmission lines at Dromana and the Arthurs Seat communications towers. The hard-hitting assessments in the fire management plan also acknowledge the peninsula is “one of the most bushfire-prone areas in the world”. The plan assesses 130 sites for their fire danger. It says risks of death are heightened by the number of visitors to the peninsula with evacuation hampered by narrow, bush-lined roads. The management plan says “catastrophic” fires are “likely” at Red Hill, Main Ridge, Melbourne Road to Dundas Street, Balnarring racecourse, the Port of Hastings and parts of Crib Point. The management plan aims to “identify, prioritise and co-ordinate treat-

ment of fire risks” as well as engaging the community to actively prepare to face the fire threat. The shire is using the data to add weight to its campaign to make the peninsula more fire-ready by using recycled water from the Carrum treatment plant to fight fires (“Uses for waste water” Page 7). The peninsula is serviced by two CFA fire brigades: Western Port group with 13 brigades and Peninsula group with eight. Major bushfires have threatened life and property on the peninsula since the early days of European settlement. The management plan lists fires as far back as 1851 “around Western Port”; the 1939 Black Friday bushfires when 43 houses were destroyed at Dromana;

fires in 1951 around Flinders Naval Depot (now HMAS Cerberus); and 1967, when “one of the biggest fires the peninsula has experienced” razed parts of Red Hill. In January 1997 a fire started near Churchill and Park roads, Mt Martha, and involved 61 firefighting units and 336 firefighters over two days. Between 20 and 40 hectares of Mt Martha Park were destroyed. The next day, at Arthur’s Seat, 400 people fought a deliberately lit blaze that burnt 160 hectares of bushland. Houses along Purves Road, Seahaze Street, Nestle Court and Towerhill Road, and Gully and McLear roads, were all at risk and residents evacuated. Blazes destroyed bushland and areas of state parks, threatened houses,

blocked roads and endangered CFA crews in 2003, 2008, 2009 and 2014. In January 2015 a fire destroyed almost half of the 146 hectare Warringine Park, Hastings. Then, in October of that year, 16 trucks fought a grass and scrub fire at BlueScope Steel’s recreation reserve in Denham Road, Tyabb. The early morning blaze burnt out five hectares before being stopped 300 metres from the steelworks. In January 2016 a fast-moving bushfire mysteriously ignited near the Crib Point refinery and headed south towards the town. One house and six sheds were destroyed with another house damaged. The next month a fire on Frankston-Flinders Road northwest of Somerville destroyed 800 metres of rail sleepers on the Stony Point line.

Doctors plea for children Keith Platt keith@mpnews.com.au FLINDERS MP and Health Minister Greg Hunt has reiterated the federal government’s position that asylum seekers on Nauru are “free to leave and return home if they so choose”. “If they choose to stay, Australia provides significant welfare support to refugee families. This support includes funding for upgrades at the Republic of Nauru hospital, worth approximately $36 million.” Mr Hunt’s comments were in response to a call from the Royal Australasian College of Physicians (RACP) for the government to act “on their duty of care and immediately transfer all refugee and asylum seeker children and their families from Nauru to Australia”. The RACP is among 180 organisations to have signed up to the Kids Off Nauru by Universal Children's Day (20 November) campaign. “This is a medical emergency,” paediatrician and president of the paediatrics and child health division within the RACP Professor Paul Colditz said. “As doctors we have compelling evidence that detention and uncertainty is damaging to people’s health and wellbeing and that this damage can be severe and lifelong. “This is especially the case for children, who are very vulnerable to their parents’ mental health and negative, unsafe environments. “There is an immediate risk of severe health consequences and we have

already seen over a dozen children evacuated to Australia with extreme ill health. This includes inadequately treated medical conditions, trauma related symptoms such as severe withdrawal and refusing to eat or drink and self-harm.” While not responding directly to statements by Prof Colditz, Mr Hunt spoke of the “welfare support” available to refugees on Nauru and Labor’s record. “When the Labor government left office, 1200 people had drowned at sea, including, tragically, numerous children. A further 8000 children were placed in detention,” Mr Hunt said. “The Coalition government has turned around the tide of boat arrivals and there have been no deaths at sea, removed those children from detention and closed 17 detention centres.” Patricia Rayner, of Somers and a member of Grandmothers Against Detention of Refugee Children, said her husband had received identical “words of wisdom” after writing to Mr Hunt. “When the Royal Australasian College of Physicians expresses alarm, things are very bad,” Ms Rayner said. “All the grandmothers who send letters must be on a black list as they do not get a reply at all. If lucky, some get a one liner issued from his office. “What does it take to bring 107 children and their parents to Australia? Certainly not the $36 million which Mr Hunt declares the government is spending on the Nauru hospital. “By overlooking the reasons why refugees left their countries and faced the horrors of the journey in the first

place, Mr Hunt negates the fact that we are signatories to the Declaration of Human Rights. “We are not being magnanimous in assisting refugees - we are obliged to do so. “While we profess to be Christian our government acts in a totalitarian manner. To have all the health organisations in protest should be heeded.” Mr Hunt’s comments came just days before the federal government quietly closed the infamous immigration detention centre on Christmas Island. Opened in 2008, the centre was commissioned by then Prime Minister John Howard but not used until Labor was in power under Kevin Rudd. Immigration Minister David Coleman has been quoted as saying closing Christmas Island was “another example of the Coalition government cleaning up Labor’s mess”. It is understood the final detainees left on the island (239 as at 30 June) have been transferred to immigration centres in Melbourne, Sydney and Perth. My Hunt last week announced that not-for-profit organisations in his Flinders electorate can apply for $10,000$50,000 “to help migrants better integrate into Australian life”. “One of the things that makes us uniquely Australian is the support we provide to one another. Our comradery and desire to ‘help our mates’ is something I see demonstrated by community groups and organisations not only in my here in our local community, but right across Australia,” Mr Hunt stated in a news release.

Path opens up peninsula possibilities Stephen Taylor steve@mpnews.com.au DEDICATED cyclist Graeme Rocke has a plan for a safe, easily accessible and environmentally responsible bike and foot path between the Peninsula Link Trail at Moorooduc with the Southern Peninsula Trail at Safety Beach. Mr Rocke, 61, of Mornington, wants a commitment from political candidates to finance project, either before November’s state election or next year’s federal election. He says the path will make use of existing infrastructure where possible. A year will be needed for planning and two years for construction. A member of three cycling groups, Mr Rocke said he considered four potential routes “all having many common elements with some variations”. But his preferred route “best satisfies the objective and goals” of the plan. Broadly, it follows the Mornington tourist rail line to the Mornington wetlands along existing paths where possible through to Craigie Road and onto Nepean Highway. At this point new work would be required to provide a safe path along Nepean Highway to Bruce Drive. After Bruce Drive the path would run along existing roads around the back of Martha Cove to Safety Beach and then connecting with the Southern Peninsula Trail. Three other routes are also up

for consideration – along with Mr Rocke’s opinions of their respective strengths and weaknesses. He says the bike path project has four key benefits: linking the Melbourne CBD to the southern part of the peninsula along a safe trail; improving road safety for bike riders and schoolchildren; reducing traffic along Bungower Road; and, promoting the peninsula’s attractions to visitors. Mr Rocke’s preferred route from Moorooduc railway station would need an “elevated pavement” or bridge over Balcombe Creek and the Melbourne Water pipe track and overpass at Bungower Road. An underpass would be needed at the Bruce Road intersection with Nepean Highway. Mr Rocke sees many safety and traffic improvements flowing from his preferred bike path by eliminating school crossings and getting riders off the roads. “Integrating the Civic Reserve [Mornington] into the bike path would bring more people to this landmark Mornington asset,” he said. “The rose garden and art gallery could benefit, along with the other sporting facilities and, with a safe and interconnecting pathway, more people would walk or ride their bike. “This would improve the fitness and health within our community and, hopefully, reduce the strain on our overloaded public health care system.”

ELEVEN projects from Frankston and the Mornington Peninsula are among 237 Pick My Project ideas sharing $30 million of taxpayers’ money. Ranging from charity works to recreational pursuits, the successful projects were chosen on the number of online votes they attracted. The amount of money available to particular communities was based on an equal split between “regional partnership areas” in metro and regional Victoria and then on population numbers within those areas. The peninsula had the second highest number of successful projects (eight) in the Southern Metro area but attracted the most money. Improved lighting at Alexandra Park, Mornington attracted the most money, $200,000 while another project to increase the number of cricket nets from four to six at the same oval received another $194,000. The lighting idea was supported by 298 votes while the extra nets received 278 votes. At the other end of the scale, a charity that provides mobile showers for homeless people in Frankston was given $20,149 after receiving 656 votes. The Mobile Shower 4 Homeless has been operating for more than two years, helping people on the streets and facing hardship in Frankston, Dandenong, Narre Warren, Cranbourne, Chelsea, Pakenham and Doveton. The money will allow the group to “upgrade from a trailer to a truck, so our friends can get more privacy”. Back at Dallas Brooks Park in Mornington, the Mornington Soccer Club gets $144,530 for windows and a verandah to provide “wet weather viewing”. “Members have enjoyed the same clubrooms for nearly half a century and with Melbourne’s wild weather can rarely enjoy this winter sport with no windows to the grounds,” the club’s submission supported by 279 online votes said. Also in the sporting area, was $196,000 (395 votes) to expand the existing 12 kilometres of mountain bike trails at Arthurs Seat State Park. The new multigrade trails will cater for families and recreational riders to more experienced, technical mountain bike riders in accordance with the International Mountain Bicycling Association. An entertaining idea for Sunday Sessions at the Briars, Mt Martha attracted $71,270 after receiving 270 votes. The monthly Sunday event over summer is described as “a family event that combines music, sports, health and wellbeing”. “Families can relax and enjoy a social day out

THURSDAY NIGHT

with live music, a crafting area for the kids and sporting workshops hosted by local organisations and clubs.” Another “family-friendly” monthly event is a farmers’ market at Mt Martha Farmers' Market. The $146,900 (311 votes) will provide “a place to gather, meet up with friends and family while sharing ideas. It's about accessing fresh produce while supporting and encouraging the local economy and creating a connection to food production”. The 125-year-old Coolart Homestead at Somers receives $196,910 (240 votes) “to help restore the house and its heritage and, more importantly, open up rooms that can be used by visiting artists and writers, for community meetings, public events and education programs, subject to Parks Victoria approval. From there, the chosen projects all deal with relationship and family problems. The $178,000 going to Women in Recovery From Domestic and Family Violence in the peninsula region (341 votes) will be used to create “tailored retreats to maximise the potential for transformative, permanent healing”. Mums Supporting Families in Need (435 votes) will use its $40,000 to supply essential material aid to families fleeing “necessitous and violent circumstances … to start life again”. This help will include hampers containing essential laundry, pantry, and basic appliances and cleaning essentials including detergents, cleaning products and pantry staples. The Frankston-based Women’s Spirit Project (240 votes) receives $50,600 to help 25 women “build their mental, emotional and physical resilience through a unique adventure-based, life skills program that will develop their goal setting, communication, problem solving, parenting and budgeting skills”. The program will run every Sunday for 14 weeks from February to May 2019. Health and fitness classes and one-on-one mentoring will also be provided with the program culminating in a three-day, four-night trek through the peninsula with family and friends.

1300 ALL ALL BLINDS BLINDS 1300 Watch your step: A beachgoer gingerly steps across Hearn Creek to access the beach at Mt Martha South. A bridge has been removed to protect nearby beach boxes.

Slippery choice after bridge loss REMOVING a small bridge over Hearn Creek on Mt Martha South Beach has stopped beach boxes being undermined, but is presenting a new hazard for pedestrians. Those accessing the beach across the creek must walk over concrete covered with slippery weed. After rain, the creek is too wide to step over and, under certain conditions, the flows create what can only be described as quicksand where the creek enters the sea. Two main access points across the creek to the southern section of the beach are then effectively closed or compromised. Mornington Peninsula Shire’s project deliv-

ery manager Derek Rotter, said the bridge over the creek was removed in February “to install a concrete crossing for vehicles and pedestrians to cross the creek”. “The bridge caused a bottle neck in the stormwater flows that come from Hearn Creek,” Mr Rotter said. “During large storms the water jumped over the bridge and caused significant erosion of the beach and foreshore. The erosion was threatening the bathing boxes.” Mr Rotter said the work was “conducted in collaboration with the federal government, the shire, Melbourne Water and local beach box owners”.

MORNINGTON Peninsula Shire Council is increasing its pressure for recycled waste water from the Eastern Treatment Plant made available for firefighting and agriculture. With a state election on 24 November the shire wants the major political parties to take a bipartisan approach and agree to lay a pipeline to pump recycled water to Arthurs Seat from Dromana. The mayor Cr Bryan Payne said the water could be gravity fed to fire hydrants strategically placed on the main ridge and in coastal villages for “quick filling points for trucks in a fire emergency – instead of [existing] isolated tanks which may not be accessible or hard to get to”. Cr Payne said the state government should see the pipeline as a major infrastructure project to make better use of up to 350 million litres of Class A recycled water being daily discharged into Bass Strait at Gunnamatta. “With one of the predicted most dangerous fire seasons approaching, it is timely for all major parties to commit to funding a recycled water pipeline,” Cr Payne said when callingh on the Premier Daniel Andrews, opposition leader Mat-

thew Guy and Victorian Greens leader Samantha Ratnam to back the proposal. “The state government should have had this scheme factored into their firefighting strategy for well over a decade but has stalled with excuses, such as: There is not enough demand from farmers because of the high price for recycled water,” he said. “This approach ignores the fact that people’s lives are at risk, as well as the billions of dollars’ worth of property, businesses, infrastructure and, importantly, jobs. “The predicted dangerous fire season also coincides with the massive increase in population on the peninsula during summer– up from 150,000 to 250,000 people, when beachside camps and holiday homes are heavily populated.” The mayor said the high seasonal population plus day visitors created challenges in the event of a major emergency, such as a fire. “This is especially in areas where firefighters are relying on tanks or dams on farms for water which may not be easily accessible.” Cr Payne said the recycled water should be of a standard that is suitable for both agriculture and firefighting “so any run off into streams or the environment would not impact on the peninsula’s flora or fauna”.

‘Good work,’ say brains behind bags BOOMERANG bag volunteers on the southern peninsula played host to the originators of the recyclable cloth bag movement at a breakfast at the Cooee cafe, Capel Sound, last week. Founders Tania Potts and Jordyn de Boer, as well as Anthony Hill, of Plastic Pollution Solutions, came from Queensland to meet and acknowledge the work of their southern counterparts in making the bags and spreading the word. “They came to meet us because we have such great Boomerang bag support here on the peninsula,” Seawinds Capel Sound Boomerang bag coordinator Val Rowe said. “It was a meeting for all of the peninsula’s boomerang bag volunteers who collectively have produced more than 25,000 Boomerang bags in just over a year.” For details on boomerang bags call Ms Rowe 0435149456 or message Seawinds boomerang bag Facebook group. Picture: Yanni n THE state government last week launched a campaign encouraging shoppers to use reusable bags ahead of a ban on lightweight, single-use plastic bags next year. Research by Sustainability Victoria has found around three-quarters of shoppers already carry reusable bags when food shopping. The research found younger shoppers, and those on higher incomes, have been slowest to forsake single-use bags, particularly when buying non-food items.

AGL board told of gas plan fears Keith Platt keith@mpnews.com.au THE gas import terminal proposed at Crib Point is part of power company AGL’s $2 billion “electricity generation projects aimed at modernising and improving energy supply”. AGL chairman Graeme Hunt on Wednesday 26 September named Crib Point as being one of these projects, along with wind farms at Coopers Gap and Silverton, gas-fired power stations at Barker Inlet and Newcastle and a coal-fired power station at Bayswater. A protest, right, against the Crib Point floating storage regasification unit (FSRU) was held outside while Mr Hunt was speaking to shareholders at the company’s annual general meeting in the Melbourne Recital Centre. Several members of the Save Westernport group along with Environment Victoria’s Mark Wakeham, using proxy votes, were able to raise questions at the meeting about safety aspects of the FSRU. “This allowed us all, for the first time, to take our case directly to the whole AGL board, they were a captive audience,” Rod Knowles, a retired MFB firefighter and Save Westernport member, said. “Concerns were raised with the board over the safety of the floating gas terminal and the impact it will have on [Western Port’s] internationally recognised Ramsar-listed wetlands.” Mr Wakeham asked the AGL board how the public could have faith in its

Picture: Julian Meehan

ability “to manage such a complex and potential dangerous facility as an FSRU when during the week their licence to operate was threatened for not complying with government regulations”. The resulting $3 million fine “brings AGL fines to $5 million over the past 10 years for negligent, deceptive and

misleading behaviour. Chairman Hunt agreed that ‘AGL had to do better’.” Mr Knowles said a busload of protesters from Crib Point was joined by others outside the recital hall to hold banners and make “a colourful and rowdy demonstration”. “[With] AGL’s bad safety record and their non-compliance with government

regulations, an FSRU at Crib Point would be an accident waiting to happen,” he said. Inside the meeting Mr Hunt told investors that despite uncertainty “AGL continues to invest in energy supply that should enhance affordability and contribute to reliability, while enabling the long-term transition of our energy

fleet to lower emissions technologies”. Interim CEO Brett Redman told the meeting that “safety, as always, is a core focus of AGL’s people and I am pleased to say that having visited many of our sites in recent weeks, I am confident our safety culture is stronger than ever”. The meeting was told that AGL’s after tax 2018 profit was $1.587 million, up from $539m in the 2017 financial year. AGL and APA Transmission are still waiting for Planning Minister Richard Wynne to say if they will have to undertake full environment effects studies for the FRSU and a gas pipeline from Crib Point to Pakenham. Phaedra Deckart, AGL’s general manager of energy supply and origination, said the referrals handed to Mr Wynne on 11 September were “just one step in a long planning assessment process”. “In response to concerns raised by Environment Victoria and the local community the referrals have been submitted together to ensure the full impacts of the combined projects are considered,” she said. “The referrals provide a fulsome evaluation of the potential direct, indirect and cumulative impacts of the projects, in order to enable a comprehensive and integrated assessment of the projects. “The project will create a new gas supply source, which will have the effect of providing much needed security of supply and placing downward pressure on prices.”

The Boundary Road Project The stone resources at Hillview Drive Quarry are running out, Hillview Quarries is looking to recommence quarrying operations and access the adjoining resources at our Boundary Road Quarry site. The Project Since 1969, Hillview Quarries has been operating the quarry in Hillview Quarry Drive, Dromana. This site is owned by the RE Ross Trust, as is the neighbouring quarry site with adjoining resources on Boundary Road. The RE Ross Trust is a charitable trust which was established in Victoria in 1970 by the will of the late Roy Everard Ross. To-date, more than $116 million has been granted to organisations across Victoria and on the Mornington Peninsula, through the profits earned from quarrying. Re-establishing quarrying operations at the Boundary Road site will generate the revenue needed to ensure the work of the RE Ross Trust continues well into the future. This is the aim of the Boundary Road Project.

An EES is required The Minister for Planning has directed that an Environmental Effects Statement (EES) be prepared for this project – an EES is the most rigorous government process for assessing projects in Victoria. Over the next few years, a range of scientific, environmental and social studies will be completed. There will be ongoing consultation with the local community and feedback will be gathered from stakeholder organisations. All of this information will be combined to form the EES which the government will use when making decisions about the future of the Boundary Road site. The EES is being managed by the Department of Environment, Land, Water and Planning.

Contact us It is early days; the project team will continue to provide information on the project website and through the media. Questions are welcomed; you can contact us using the details below and the team will be happy to speak with you about the project or ensure you receive regular updates.

BETTER BUSES for the peninsula Did you know...

Out of the 30 Councils in the Melbourne Metro Area, Mornington Peninsula Shire has the second lowest provision of public transport?

This calls for change. The Shire, with its community, needs to voice current challenges being experienced by public transport users to the state government. We are calling on the state government to fund necessary upgrades to our public transport, including improvements to the 788 bus service.

Transport facts on the peninsula 7.6 million visitors annually and 82% of the peninsula is not serviced by public transport.

Two of three Major Activity Centres aren’t serviced by train, relying on buses – the only municipality in the state in this scenario.

Launch ready: A boat made in Mornington for the Queensland police makes a dawn arrival for launching at Mornington. Pictures: Gary Sissons

Police boat heading north HART Marine staff treated their newest creation with kid gloves as it was driven slowly down Main Street, Mornington for its launching at the public club boat ramp last week. The 15.6 metre fibreglass Queensland police boat will operate out of Hervey Bay. Its French ORC Pantocarene design wave-piercing hull is powered by two MTU Series 60 engines producing 615kw of power at 2300 rpm. The ORC hull is said to provide fast and fuel efficient running, combined with excellent seakeeping. Fuel capacity is 3500 litres. The vessel

sleeps four people and is fitted with Garmin navigational aids. This is the first of two for Queensland police patrol boats being built at the Yuilles Road factory. A 17.3m vessel is due to be launched in coming months. The company’s first police boat at 11.9 metres went to Victoria police.

Gifts top the list at athletics’ drawcard Stephen Taylor steve@mpnews.com.au THE running of the inaugural Hastings Gift with $8000 for the winners of the 120-metre men’s and women’s events will be the highlight of a sporting extravaganza to be held at the Thomas Barclay oval, Hastings, on Saturday 17 November. The main events are sponsored by AGL and other races in the 14-event program include the John Coleman Mile (1600m) Hastings open handicap at $1500 and several races offering $1000 in prize money: the Tucketts Tyrepower 120m Hastings masters handicap; Hastings 120m backmarkers invitational/mixed handicap; Hastings 300m open handicap; Malvolio 300m Hastings masters/women’s handicap; Hastings 800m open handicap, and Hastings 4 x 200m stable mixed relay. The Fast’n’Fearless 70m Hastings novice sprint and the Pride Performance 70m Hastings elimination invitational/mixed handicap will offer $600 prizes, and the WCCI 120m Under 18 men’s and women’s handicaps will offer $300 prizes. The Victorian Athletics League’s 120m Hastings under-14 handicap will offer a sash as prize, while trophies will be awarded to the winners of the Secondary school mixed 4 x 200m relay, and Hastings 4 x 200m Australian Defence Force men’s and women’s relays. The launch of the professional running event has come about after a group of residents received the backing of Mornington Peninsula Shire Council and the Victorian Athletic League.

Hastings Gift president Terry Kelly said the aim of the day was to attract visitors to the Western Port area and to broaden an awareness of professional running, a “part of Australia’s history”. He said the organisers were able to offer prizemoney high enough to attract top athletes. “As a premier athletic event it will give the public the opportunity to see some of the best athletes in Australia competing for the honour of being the inaugural Hastings Gift winner,” Mr Kelly said. “The event came into being as a number of committee members have family and friends that compete on the Victorian Athletic League circuit and live on the Mornington Peninsula. “They compete with local sprinting team Pride Performance. The members have won all the biggest and most prestigious gifts both in Victoria and interstate. Some of their major wins include the Rye Gift, Maryborough Gift, Ballarat Gift, Queanbeyan Gift (NSW) and the iconic Stawell Gift.” Mr Kelly said the event was expected to attract about 500 athletes, including from interstate. “Local support on the day would give this exciting new event a chance to grow as it becomes an annual event on the local and state calendar and offer much needed fundraising opportunities for the community,” Mr Kelly said. “A number of sponsorship opportunities are available, including sponsoring one of the 14 major races on the day.” To inquire about sponsorship call Mr Kelly 0484 954283 or email president@hastingsgift. org

End misleading claims about gas supplies It was impressive to see so many local residents at Somers voice their concerns about AGL’s gas plan for Western Port (“Drop-in invite sparks rousing response” The News 25/9/18). AGL is in no doubt that it does not have a social licence to operate a proposed floating gas facility at Crib Point after thousands of people have expressed their anger by signing petitions or facing company executives at their community meetings. AGL must stop the propaganda about “downward pressure on gas prices” and the state government must stop misleading Victorians about AGL bringing “relief to all Victorian gas consumers as quickly as possible”. Importing LNG at Crib Point will not bring gas prices down for Victorian families and businesses - AGL does not control international gas prices. AGL should have signed a 10-year contract for gas from Bass Strait instead of a three-year contract from 2018-2020. Victoria is not running out of gas - AGL has a shortage of gas. The clean, green reputation of the Mornington Peninsula is too valuable to put at risk so that AGL can import LNG and sell it to NSW and South Australia customers ahead of Victorians - who will pay the ultimate price if an industrial accident happens at Crib Point jetty. Dale Stohr, Crib Point

Habitat lost My fellow residents, have we voted councillors into local government who are hell bent on destroying our delightful rural lifestyle? The destruction of many, many hectares of

...Don’t miss securing that wanted property

native grasses, bushland, and who knows which or how many species of fauna, including skinks and plovers (which nest on the ground) is of real concern for those of us who reside on the Western Port side [of the Mornington Peninsula]. Properties on Frankston-Flinders Road, Bittern, Graydens Road, Hastings and High Street, Hastings have recently been sold to developers for the building of hundreds of houses.. People ask why are there are snakes in built up areas and kangaroos at Melbourne airport? Guess what? We are allowing the bulldozing and development of their habitat. Where do we think these animals will get a drink? They don’t want to be in your backyard, but their homes are being destroyed at an alarming rate. Please, challenge your local councillor for an answer and voice these concerns. Maureen Sharpe, Bittern

Battle goes on Congratulations to Friends of Tootgarook and Save Tootgarook Wetlands for receiving their heritage awards (“Awards for preserving the past and the future” The News 25/9/18). It is through efforts of these and similar community groups that the Mornington Peninsula’s and the wider Australian environmental jewels are being saved and preserved for future generations and the wildlife and ecological systems. It is a never ending struggle by the few against the pressure from vested interests and carpet baggers. Here on the other side of the peninsula, we have to fight the same or similar fights every five or 10 years over and over again. At present it is

the ill-conceived proposal to import liquid gas Into Victoria through Crib Point. AGL is the corporation that is threatening the health of Western Port’s aquatic and coastal environment. Hopefully this attack too will pass without impinging on the health of Western Port. Well done again to all the dedicated folk of the southern peninsula. Rupert Steiner, Balnarring Beach

Refugees not free What vile views are espoused by Michael Long as he seeks to denigrate Patricia Rayner (“Sensible policies” Letters 18/9/18). Of course these refugees on Manus and Nauru are not “free to return from whence they came, along with their children”. Their lives had been effectively destroyed in their own countries and they are not safe to return. However, they do not have the freedom and safety to which those in our lucky country aspire and if we continue to keep refugees and their children under such appalling conditions, we are indeed behaving in a fascist way. Enough is enough. We must continue to fight for the rights of these refugees to live in Australia and, if I am to believe the government, our borders are now safe. As the world and its problems move along at such a pace, we need the Patricia Rayners of this world to remind us that not all are as luck as we are. To quote Mr Long, this is not the sort of world I want for my grandchildren. Mel Farnbach, Balnarring

‘Comfortable’ refugees Ann Renkin (“Bring refugees” Letters 18/9/18) is alarmed at the deplorable situation the “refugees” (read “economic opportunists”) on Nauru face, and have faced, for the past five years. These families surely must be able to return to their countries of origin after this amount of time. But Ms Renkin demands they be brought to Australia as they have “suffered” enough. But many articles I have read tell a different scenario of these refugees living a very comfortable life and some fathering children with the local popu-

lation. This is not good enough for Ms Renkin, bring them here and let Australian taxpayers support them: all care but no responsibility. Ken Hailes, Sorrento Editor: Ms Renkin’s desire to bring asylumseeker families to Australia from Nauru is also supported many organisations, including the Royal Australasian College of Physicians, but not by the MP for Flinders, Health Minister Greg Hunt (see Page 3).

Talk about anthem Recently, nine-year-old Queensland schoolgirl Harper Neilsen took a brave “stand” (excuse the pun) to the debate and the relevance of our national anthem. For such a young person she certainly is articulate. I too have thought the words inappropriate, especially with regard our First Nation people and our refugees. Do people really understand what they are singing? I think not. Maybe a more appropriate song would be Bruce Woodley’s “I am, you are, we are Australian”. ABC TV has been playing it of late, promoting programs. Check out the song and lyrics on YouTube. Let the conversation on our national anthem continue. Denise Hassett, Mt Martha

Care for elderly The recent [ABC TV’s] Four Corners series and announcement of a royal commission into aged care have focussed media attention on some very poor practices in the industry and the community is rightly outraged. It would be easy to think that all aged care residences are the same and so be anxious about loved ones. On the morning after the royal commission was announced I received a very thoughtful email from a family member, shared below (names withheld). It’s a timely reminder of the excellent care we provide at Andrew Kerr through our compassionate and professional staff. All of our residents are important and treated with dignity, respect and care.

FIRE ACTION WEEK

7 - 14 October 2018 Stay informed

Message from the Premier This week is Fire Action Week, a time for all Victorians to start planning for a long and hot summer ahead. Low rainfall over winter has dried out much of the state and forecasts from the Bureau of Meteorology of a dry and hot summer means that we need to prepare for an earlier and longer fire season. Our dedicated emergency services are working with communities, businesses and local councils to reduce the risk for our state.

So please, talk to your family, friends and neighbours about your plans, and make sure you know when to leave and where to go to stay safe. You can also find out more information, monitor warnings and check the daily Fire Danger Ratings at emergency.vic.gov.au Taking the right steps now could make all the difference.

Recent bushfires – both here in Australia and overseas – remind us of the need to understand our own fire risk. Planning and preparing for fire is a responsibility that belongs to everyone.

The Hon Daniel Andrews MP Premier of Victoria

FIRE ACTION WEEK THE RIGHT TIME TO PREPARE IT’S YOUR RESPONSIBILITY TO BE READY THIS SUMMER. Prepare your property, fire plan and emergency kit now. The reasons are black and white.

1. Plan what you’ll do in the event of a fire, talk to your household and know where to access information on high risk days. 2. Keep grass short. Fire can ignite and travel quickly through long grass. 3. Get rid of dry grass, leaves, twigs and loose bark around your home. 4. Remove or prune shrubs near windows and under branches of mature trees.

5. Cut back overhanging tree branches close to property – no branches within 10 metres. 6. Keep gutters and roof areas clear of leaf litter (if you are physically able to). 7. Remove all materials from around the home that could burn, such as boxes, furniture and woodpiles.

Insight into artistic vision REMBRANDT’S Vision: Dutch Heritage Painting in the 17th Century will be the topic at the Friday 12 October meeting of the Australian and Decorative Fine Arts Society, in Mornington. Speaker Dr Sophie Oosterwijk, who has PhDs in Art History (Leicester) and English Literature (Leiden), specialises in portraiture and representation, death and commemoration in European Art. Her teaching interests include Medieval, Netherlandish and Dutch 17th century art and she is widely published. She is fluent in Dutch, English, French and German and knows the Netherlands and Belgium intimately. History painting was a special genre in the Dutch Republic during the Golden Age. Rembrandt trained in history painting in Amsterdam but developed his own interpretations of Biblical stories with emphasis on human drama and the human figure. Ms Oosterwijk’s lecture explores the concept that not all of his contemporaries appreciated Rembrandt’s approach. ADFAS lectures are held at the Peninsula Community Theatre in Wilsons Road, 5.30pm, Fridays. The illustrated, hour-long lectures are followed by light refreshments and an opportunity to meet the lecturer and fellow members. Call booking secretary Glad Hungerford 97872092 to arrange a free first visit. Membership details: Vicky Davison 0407 810 877.

Continued from Page 12 We have established a resident food forum to help chose the menu and suggest weekly specials. The menus are reviewed by independent dieticians and all food is prepared and cooked on site in our new kitchen by Andrew Kerr staff. Fresh fruit is always available and residents can change their meals so they only get what they like. “You may not remember meeting me the other week and I mentioned that my mother was at Andrew Kerr for over 13 years; in this time I was very pleased with the way she was cared for and treated with respect, compassion and humour by staff. This care spanned very different needs over the years and was always appropriate for her needs at the time. I was also impressed by the support I was given by staff, particularly in her final few days.” Andrew Kerr continues to assist older peninsula residents to live dignified, secure and rewarding lives. We are the only independent stand-alone facility on the Peninsula, proud of our community base and not for profit status. Angela Dixon, CEO Andrew Kerr Care, Mornington

Candidate’s challenge The challenge for the Labor Party candidate in Nepean, Chris Bayne, is to get his party and Planning Minister Richard Wynne and the Premier Daniel Andrews to agree with his election commitment of ensuring “all inappropriate development [on the peninsula] is halted before they gain attraction” and to “prevent overreaching property and business development” (“Labor’s late start in Nepean” The News 2/10/18). Without their agreement any such statements are just rhetoric. Only last Thursday (27 September) Mr Wynne made an election promise to introduce controls to stop developers ruining the Bellarine Peninsula (Police Minister Lisa Neville’s electorate) and the Surf Coast while previously giving the Macedon Ranges the same commitment. However, for almost a year, Mr Wynne has refused to introduce similar controls on the Mornington Peninsula. It appears that he sees us

as second class citizens. Last February, Mornington Peninsula Shire Council requested him to approve the consultative process for limiting the extent of three-storey development on the peninsula. Deputations to Melbourne have been made by the mayor and the community has clearly indicated its opposition to three storeys with over 10,000 signatures on petitions submitted to parliament. In perhaps a delaying tactic the minister required that the shire submit its housing and settlement strategy. The report, which included input from the community, showed that with sensible height controls the shire could accommodate its share of Melbourne’s predicted population growth “at a rate that will not compromise the character of the peninsula that can be sustained in the long term”. The Mornington Peninsula Ratepayers’ Association looks forward to the Labor candidate for Nepean receiving an election commitment from Mr Wynne consistent with that made to our friends on the other side of Port Phillip [and] that the minister will approve the consultative process for the shire’s Planning Amendment C219 to proceed. Alan Nelsen, secretary Mornington Peninsula Ratepayers’ Association

Lacking substance I recently received a letter advising me of all the plans of the state Liberal party should it be elected to government in November. The main thrust of the letter from [Nepean candidate] Russell Joseph seems to be that the Labor government has “ruined the general residential zone” now that it has become a location for three-storey apartments. Note the past tense “ruined” and also no reference to the fact that this is to apply only to a few areas on the Mornington Peninsula. Not lies, just not the whole truth. I also note that they are going to fund route improvements and frequencies of bus services. Very necessary, but no indication of how much this will cost or when in fact it will commence. Again, no substance. However, what is singularly lacking or only receives passing reference, are the three most

Dogs for Kids with Disabilities

pressing needs on the peninsula. The first two are the urgent need for an extension of the freeway to avert the very significant congestion already existing all of the time. Also, noise barriers so that those living adjacent to it can enjoy a quiet existence in their homes. In the survey at the rear of the letter, Mr Joseph does refer to the second and the “screaming need now” for more rental housing. The existing stocks are being very rapidly bought up by young families coming here to live because they still find it an attractive place and by the developers building houses too expensive for rental by the bulk of the populace. Again this appears to be a thought bubble without much substance, perhaps to be discarded as too difficult when the time comes. Ken Norris, McCrae

Liberal way ahead Despite the hegemony of state and federal parliamentary representatives, in the past my vote has been either informal or given to a socially thinking and competent candidate from any persuasion other than from the conservative parties. Unless we change the died in the wool thinking of the existing MPs such as Mornington MP David Morris, Hastings MP Neale Burgess and Flinders MP Greg Hunt (forget Dunkley as I believe Chris Crewther has virtually no chance to retain his seat with the recent redistribution of boundaries giving Labor’s Peta Murphy her best opportunity to balance out the current inequities and provide genuine socially democratic leadership for the people of Frankston, Carrum Downs and parts of the Mornington Peninsula). Mention must be made of Russell Joseph who has shown the best intentions to replace Dromana MP Martin Dixon. Mr Joseph listens and responds to petitioners, unlike many of the other incumbents. Why don’t the existing Liberal MPs - Hunt, Burgess and Morris - consider doing something positive about the green wedge? We have heard a few policies and seen publicity photographs, but now is the time to show some leadership and form a Liberals for a Greener Protected Mornington Peninsula Alliance. These politicians could show genuine concern for protecting our unique non-urban, recreational

and residential region. Towns like Mornington, Rosebud and Hastings and villages of Mt Eliza, Mt Martha and Rye are under threat from rapacious property developers, including overseas absentee developers looking for a quick buck at our expense. Our shire council is often overridden by state and federal intervention so we need our elected representatives to show more cross boundaries wisdom and flexibility by meeting together and putting their names to a conjoint statement setting out that their main priority is to protect our wonderful peninsula region. Ian Morrison, Mt Eliza

Thanks for help To the local good Samaritans who came to my aid when I tripped on uneven paving and fell on the brick footpath off Victoria Street, Hastings on Saturday morning 8 September: thank you all for your gentle care, your wise advice, compassion and reassurances. I’m now home from hospitals, currently 100 per cent disabled, with a repaired broken hip that’s unbelievably painful and held together with three metal rods. However, thinking of you and what you did for me keeps my spirits up. My thanks again to all of you and the very best of good wishes. Jan Foster, Crib Point

Preventing stroke On behalf of the Stroke Foundation, I would like to congratulate all those who helped spread the stroke prevention message during Stroke Week 2018. I also want to take the opportunity to say it is not too late to make some simple changes to your daily routine which would make a positive difference to your health and potentially even save your life. I urge you to stop reaching for the salt or sugary drinks, walk an extra block to work or take the stairs instead of the lift. These small steps can go a long way to reducing your stroke risk. Sharon McGowan, CEO Stroke Foundation

IN THE

specialists HANDS

Keeping social with Banksia Frankston BEING a carer for a person living with Alzheimer’s disease can have many ups and downs. Seaford resident Cathie, 73, says connecting with others is vital for her. ’Meeting other people and knowing that you’re not the only one, you feel that if they can get through it, you can get through it too.’ Her husband Arthur, also 73, arrived in Australia from Scotland in 1969, working as a tram conductor, in the days before public transport fares were automated. Before leaving Scotland to try his luck Down Under, Arthur began dating Cathie. After months of writing to her from the other side of the world, Arthur finally put his true feelings to paper, sending Cathie a long distance love letter, asking her to marry him. The following year, Cathie joined Arthur in Melbourne, and they married in Kew, later having two boys. Many years down the track, in 2009, the couple retired on the New South Wales coast, enjoying the relaxation and lifestyle on offer in the local retirement community. Following Arthur’s diagnosis with Alzheimer’s disease two years ago, they made the difficult decision to move back to Melbourne to be closer to their two sons. To assist their parents, the sons made contact with Brotherhood Aged Care, and have since been provided with a range of services. Through the organisation’s Care at Home program, they have the very practical

assistance of a cleaner. They were also introduced to the Brotherhood’s Banksia Frankston Respite Centre, a specialist dementia care facility. Arthur now attends every week on a Thursday, taking part in activities such as carpet bowls and even Thai Chi classes. For Cathie, as full-time carer to Arthur, Banksia also provides her with an opportunity to relax. ’Arthur enjoys it there. He meets people in similar circumstances to himself and I get the time to myself, which is good’, Cathie says. ‘They have six rooms, where Arthur can stay overnight, and there are things like weekend outings that I can go to, and Arthur can stay at Banksia for that time.’ ‘It’s easy come, easy go,’ says Arthur. ‘It’s very casual. Everyone has got something to do and it’s very easy. It’s good to get out.’ Through the Brotherhood, Cathie and Arthur also enjoy monthly movie nights, and evenings at their local RSL Club. The time they spend at the RSL has allowed them to make new friends and mingle with other people in similar situations.‘You find there’s a lot of things the others say that you can relate to,’ says Cathie. ‘The more we go to these social things, naturally the more people we meet. Just meeting people in similar circumstances to you, you don’t still feel like you’re the only one.’ Cathie also joins the Brotherhood’s Carer Support Group which meets once a month, to connect with other

times, Cathie and Arthur continue to make the most of social events offered through the Brotherhood. If you’d like to find out more about

100 YEARS AGO THIS WEEK...

Mr and Mrs Scott mourn the loss of young son Compiled by Brodie Cowburn MR and Mrs J. Scott and family deplore the sad loss of their dearly beloved little son and brother, the late Raymond John Scott who died at his parents residence Somerville, on the 25th September 1918, aged four years and three months. He died of heart failure after being a long and patient little sufferer of five months, although so ill he was so keen and bright until nearly the last.

MORNINGTON NEWS

Combined effort results in Moorooduc win Donohue fell for a duck, which set the tone for remainder of the innings. It was a clinical bowling performance from Tootgarook’s Corey DeBruyn, posting figures of 3/10 off 8 overs. Skye finished all out for 63. Tootgarook quickly chased down their target with 28 overs to spare. Dromana had a bye for the first round of the season.

By Brodie Cowburn

PENINSULA

MOOROODUC have posted an impressive total against Crib Point to claim the first win of their season. After winning the toss and electing to bat first, Moorooduc openers Ben Williams and Thilana Rajakaruna got things off to a perfect start. Williams has particularly impressive, notching up seven fours and two massive sixes on his way to a total of 78 before being dismissed. Rajakaruna hit nine fours of his own, as his side flew to a total of 6/209 from their 40 overs. Crib Point posted a respectable total in response, but an impressive bowling performance by Reece Cordeaux helped keep them out out touch. Cordeaux posted figures of 3/26 as Crib Point fell short by 34 runs. At Eric Bell Reserve, a fantastic bowling performance from all-rounder Lai Leaunoa has helped Pines to a win over Main Ridge. Leaunoa got off to a frustrating start and was dismissed for a duck off the bowling of Luke Collins. Most of Pines’ top order failed to fire, but they were saved by an impressive knock of 63 from middle order batsman Nick Wilcox guiding them to 8/161. Main Ridge got off to a shaky start and were 2/14 before Billy Sakalis came in to post a total of 36. Just as he was getting his eye in, Leaunoa redeemed his earlier batting performance by claiming his wicket. The remainder of Main Ridge failed to make much of an impact, as they finished all out for 131. Leaunoa finished with figures of 3/20 off six overs. At Ballam Park East, Long Island won the toss and sent in their Somerville opponents to bat, which would prove to be an unwise choice. Somerville finished with an impressive total of 9/202, which would prove to be a simple target to defend. James Paxton proved particularly expensive with the ball, claiming two wickets but conceding 59 runs from 8 overs. A strong economic bowling performance saw Long Island struggle to keep pace with the required run rate. Long Island ended up falling short of their target by 33 runs, as they finished up at 7/169. The final win of the first round of the season went to Baden Powell, who claimed a comfortable victory over Red Hill. Rhys Elmi put on a man of the match performance for his side, getting things off to a positive start with a handy knock of 21 off 41 deliveries. Star player Coen Chernishoff put together an impressive knock of 50 off 58 to help his side to a total of 7/177. Elmi then turned it on with ball in hand, claiming figures of 3/32 off 8 overs to restrict Red Hill to a small total. A good knock of 47 by Riley Shaw was quickly wasted by a middle order collapse that saw red Hill all out for 128.

DISTRICT

HEATHERHILL have sent a note to the rest of the competition with an emphatic win over Rosebud to start their season. Heatherhill won the toss and chose to bat first, and got off to a dream start.

PROVINCIAL

Flying start: Above, Moorooduc grabbed the win over Crib Point in Peninsula Division. Left, Peninsula Old Boys got the chocolates over Mornington in Provincial Division. Pictures: Andrew Hurst

Steven O’Donnell put on a stunning batting performance, toiling his way to a century before being dismissed by Geoffrey Glaum for a whopping 104. Glaum’s bowling was the standout for Rosebud, finishing with 3/18 off 8 overs. From there Rosebud had a little more luck, as Heatherhill went from 0/127 to 4/144. Heatherhill ended up posting an impressive total of 221 to set Rosebud an almighty target. The task would prove to be too much, as Brett Maxwell claimed four wickets and Jake Theobold three. Theobold’s calps would all come in the same over, as he only conceded 12 runs from his eight overs. Rosebud only completed 21 of theri 40 overs, as they finished all out for 68. At Ferrero Reserve, Seaford took on Mt Martha in what would turn out to be an entertaining clash. The Tigers went in to bat first, and kept the run rate high. David James put together a knock of 56, the vast majority coming from boundaries. The rest of the card also worked hard with few people not performing well, as the Tigers put together a mammoth total of 8/232. Michael Clavin had a mixed day with ball in hand for Mt Martha, claiming two wickets but bowling 11 wides and 8 no balls. Mt Martha put in a respectable effort chasing Seaford, but ultimately fell short. Their first wicket fell for just 1, before they recovered to post 7/173. Opener Alex Mason was their best performer, posting 69 runs. Kanakook Reserve played host to Seaford and Delacombe Park, with Seaford winning the toss. They went in to bat first, but endured a difficult start. Seaford quickly fell to 3/15 before their middle order started firing. Their middle order batsmen put on 103 runs to steady the ship, but their side let them down. They finished at 9/136 and would have to work hard to defend their total.

Delacombe Park also got off to a shaky start, falling to 2/21. They bounced back quickly though, with Ricky Ramsdale’s 57 not out helping his team to 3/140, securing a 7 wicket win. Carrum and Hastings battled it out at Hasting Park, with Carrum choosing to bat first. Carrum got off to a strong start, with their first drop and number four batsmen Dent and D’Atri combining in an impressive partnership. Jake Hewitt eventually dismissed them both, which sparked a nasty batting collapse. Their tail contributed just four runs to the total of 141. Hastings looked to stamp their authority quickly, as Robert Hearn put on 66 runs to put his side in the box seat. They reached the target with three overs to spare, securing a comfortable six wicket win.

SUB DISTRICT

FRANKSTON YCW battled hard but narrowly gave up their lead over Tyabb at Peninsula Reserve. YCW had Matthew Black to thank for their strong start, as he passed his half century on his way to 59 runs before being caught out. The YCW middle order also contributed well, as they put together a defendable total of 5/158. Although Frankston may have felt good about defending 158, Tyabb opener Aaron Edwards quickly put a

dagger through their hearts by posting a dominant innings of 85 runs. He hit three sixes, and was helped by a handy 27 runs from his opening partner. Sam Fulton finally claimed Edwards’ wicket but the damage was done, as Tyabb claimed the win by eight wickets. Carrum Downs faced off a challenge from Boneo to claim a strong win to kick off their season. Adam Mikkelson got things started on the right foot for his side, contributing 45 runs with six fours. Carrum Downs’ middle order performed well as they finished at 9/148 after 40 overs. Boneo struggled to keep touch with Carrum Downs’ run rate, and were losing wickets at a rapid rate. David Dervan and Chris Moloney were the best performers with ball in hand, with figures of 4/20 and 3/18 respectively. Boneo lost the match after being bowled out for 117. Balnarring pulled off a masterstroke against Rye by sending them in to bat, as they quickly ran through them. Only two Rye batsmen reached double digits, as their side was left all out for 81. Balnarring then made easy work of chasing down the run total, claiming the win with 9 wickets in hand. Tootgarook’s decision to send Skye in to bat also proved smart, as Skye struggled badly. Captain and opening batsman Clint

MT ELIZA and Pearcedale battled it out in a thrilling matchup at Emil Madsen Reserve on Saturday 6 October. Mt Eliza won the toss and elected to bat first, and that would prove to be a wise choice. Tim Clarke quickly got his eye in, and went on to post a massive total. He reached a well earned century before being caught out for 124. His opening partner and first drop didn’t help his cause though, as they were both dismissed for a total of 1. Mt Eliza’s middle order played their part, as they clawed their way to an impressive target of 4/218. Pearcedale would have to be on top of their game to get close, but they had an opening weapon of their own. Joshua Swainston showed Mt Eliza that his side wouldn’t take the loss lying down, as he had a brilliant knock of 101 runs. His dismissal put his sides’ chances in doubt, but they eventually held on to claim the winning runs off the final delivery of the day to get a narrow 3 wicket win. Langwarrin took on Baxter in their opening clash for the season, with Baxter choosing to bat first. Baxter’s top order all performed serviceably, but run rate became an issue as the afternoon went on. Leigh Paterson conceded just 9 runs from his 8 overs to frustrate Baxter and limit them to a final total of 7/142. Langwarrin made short work of that total upon coming in to bat, with a 127 run partnership between Thomas Hussey and Taylor Smith helping Baxter claim a thumping nine wicket win. Mornington played host to Peninsula OB at Baxter Park, with both sides keen to claim a victory to get their seasons started off the right way. Peninsula OB won the toss and elected to bat, with their no.3 batsman Wade Pelzer putting on a 58 run show before a frustrating run out. Mornington cycled through their bowlers, with Glenn Wood’s 2/21 off 7 overs being the most impressive. Peninsula OB had performers across their entire side, as they finished at an impressive 8/213. Mornington came in to bat with a big target to chase, and run rate proved to be the biggest issue. Wickets were not falling too quickly, but Mornington were not scoring fast enough. Benjamin Clements contributed 61 runs, but his side’s total of 146 was not enough. The final match of the round pitted Flinders against Sorrento in what would prove to be a one sided affair. Sorrento’s Jake Wood, who would finish with figures of 3/11, tore through Flinders’ top order and left them reeling at 3/9. Flinders finished up at all out for 75, a total which Sorrento chased in just 21 overs. Jedd Falck’s 31 runs was Sorrento’s highest total in their simple run chase.

Four new coaches confirmed SOCCER

By Craig MacKenzie SKYE United, Baxter, Peninsula Strikers and Southern United have announced their senior coaches for the 2019 season. Skye appointed former Langwarrin midfielder Phil McGuinness last weekend. Peninsula Strikers announced last Wednesday that former Frankston Pines and recent Knox City coach Danny Verdun was taking over and the following day Baxter announced that George Hughes had been appointed as head coach. Southern United announced the appointment of Washington Castillo as senior coach last Friday. McGuinness is a former Skye player and assistant coach who joined the club after playing with Langwarrin and coaching the reserves at Lawton Park to the 2014 championship. His assistant is former Old Scotch player Stephen Duffy who has coached Glen Waverley. Skye held its presentation night last Friday and Daniel Walsh and Daniel Attard tied for senior best and fairest with Caleb Nicholes winning the senior Golden Boot award. Frank Dimu was best and fairest in the reserves with Mikey Turner runner-up while Luke Camerota won the Golden Boot. The senior women’s best and fairest was Sarah Maslen with Saskia Dekker runner-up. Senna Evans won the players’ player of the year award and the Golden Boot winner was Madison Brooks. Jayde Moore won the reserves women’s best and fairest and runner-up was Kerrie Thornhill. The reserves players’ player of the year was Christine Travaglia while Amy Smith won the Golden Boot award. At Baxter Hughes used a PowerPoint presentation to the committee to outline a three-year plan to take the club into the higher divisions and create an attractive development pathway for its juniors. “The club is ambitious and so am I,” Hughes said. “They’ve got a good club with good facilities and a good junior set-up. “I’m hoping to bring in some young quality players who want to play first team football and my goal is simple – I want to win the league next year.” Hughes is the last man to win a championship with Strikers – a feat he achieved in the 2007 season. Verdun has won titles with Pines and

Knox and along with his assistant Neil Standish jumped at the chance to work at Centenary Park. “I was very impressed with Trevor Johnston and the committee and their plans for the club,” Verdun said. “Their passion to take the club forward matches what we want to do as coaches.” Verdun has become the pied piper of State League soccer with a core group of players following him from club to club and it will be no surprise if Michael Hoogendyk, Grant Lane, Paul McEvoy, Jordan Avraham, Nick Giannopoulos, Kyle Crawford and Colin McCormack are among an influx of new players for the upcoming season. Striker Matthew Hames won’t join that group as he is due to go to the UK in December to work as a teacher. Verdun will hold a players’ meeting at Centenary Park on Thursday 1 November. Pre-season training starts on Tuesday 11 December for a fortnight before the Christmas break and will resume on Tuesday 8 January. Strikers already have arranged two pre-season friendlies with Wednesday 23 January pencilled in for a match

at Centenary Park against NPL outfit Kingston City starting at 7pm. On Saturday 9 February Strikers will play Collingwood City at Centenary Park at 4pm and 6pm. Castillo takes over as Southern’s senior coach from Aaron Myatt who rejected an offer to coach the under19s leaving Debbie Nichols and Emma Bracken as the club’s remaining foundation coaches. Castillo joined the academy at famous Uruguayan outfit Nacional as a 12-year-old and spent a season in second division with Rentista before migrating to Australia in 1979. He has been involved as a development coach at Endeavour United working with both boys and girls and has coached Laverton Park’s senior women’s team. He also has coached at Casey Comets (then Cranbourne) and was in charge of the under-16 boys at Skye United this year. In 2010 Castillo returned to Uruguay and attended a 40-day youth development course under the supervision of world renowned Uruguayan coach Óscar Tabárez. Southern technical director Harry

In NPL2 news Langwarrin has been linked with moves for Kostas and Chris Droutsas from Eastern Lions and David Stirton from Dandenong City. The Droutsas brothers played pivotal roles in Eastern Lions’ third-placed finish last season while Stirton was Dandenong City’s second top scorer. Former Bentleigh Greens, Hume City and current Oakleigh Cannons midfielder Wayne Wallace has also been mentioned as a Langy target. However the Lawton Park club could have a battle on its hands retaining striker John Kuol who is firmly on Dandenong City’s radar. The word is that Langy head coach Scott Miller’s phone has been running hot recently and pre-season training is expected to be highly competitive. One possible hiccup in the club’s preparations is doubt about Connor Belger’s return from his native England. Meanwhile Matt Morris-Thomas is expected to be re-appointed senior coach of Seaford United as soon as a

new committee is elected at the club’s upcoming AGM. The club finished in the relegation zone in State 3 South-East but has been in contact with FFV regarding any possible knock-on effect of Morwell Pegasus withdrawing from State 1 competition during last season. It’s understood that FFV told Seaford that its fate remains uncertain. Morwell is believed to have applied for a spot in State 2 South-East but FFV may decide to only accept the club into a much lower league. Irrespective of the outcome MorrisThomas anticipates quite a few new faces at North Seaford Reserve next season. “The most important thing is to stop the club from sliding any further down the leagues,” Morris-Thomas said. “I’ll definitely be trying to recruit players and I’m expecting a pretty big turnover in the first team squad.” In other news Mark Pagliarulo has signed for Somerville Eagles and the big Scottish striker is delighted with his move. “I went for a wee chat and a pint and after hearing about the new players coming in and what they have planned I was blown away,” Pagliarulo said. “I’ve also got the opportunity to help Stan (Packer) with the academy they’re trying to set up so I will still do a bit of coaching.” “Pags” coached Bulleen’s NPL under-15s this year and came out of retirement late last season to help Baxter in its successful fight to avoid relegation. He lacks little in confidence and is looking forward to linking with Somerville player-coach David Greening and Louis Griffiths up front. “You can interview me when I steal Greening’s Golden Boot at the title party,” Pagliarulo added. Frankston Pines will hold an extraordinary AGM on Thursday after failing to elect an executive committee at its AGM two weeks ago and Hamdija “Boz” Osmancevic is expected to again contest the presidency. Osmancevic was the only candidate for the role at the recent AGM and was duly elected but later stood down amid argument over the club’s future and his management plans. This time however he is expected to have a rival for the top job. Current vice-president Steve Spencer confirmed last weekend that former vice-president Daniel Plaiche would stand and the pair were due to meet as we went to print.

Freedman’s sprinters star in Premiere “They are easy horses to travel and both have done a bit of that,” Freedman said. “Now it’s just a question of keeping them up to the mark over the next two weeks. “I think the track may have been a bit firm for Shoals so a bit of rain between now and the race would suit her.” Assistant trainer Sam Freedman was also full of praise following the pairs run. “He (Santa Ana Lane) was fantastic, it was great ride by Benny (Melham), he knows the horse so well,” he said.

FREEDMAN Racing’s star sprinters, Shoals and Santa Ana Lane, are right on target for the $13 million The Everest after running the quinella in the Group Two Premiere Stakes at Randwick on Saturday 29 October. Santa Ana Lane (first) and Shoals (second) left several Everest competitors in their wake, including last year’s Everest winner Redzel, after scorching the turf to run a track record of 1.07.45s. Mornington-based trainer Anthony Freedman said it will just be about keeping them at their peak for the feature event on Saturday 13 October.

“I thought he was going to run out of time, I thought they were going to get away from him, but fortunately he’s got her right on the line. “Santa we’ll just keep him happy now, he’s probably right where we need him to be, Shoals probably had a little bit of improvement to come, she’ll come on for that and both will be right where we need them to be in two weeks’ time.” Ben Triandafillou Record time: Santa Ana Lane takes out the Group Two Premiere Stakes at Randwick to set a new track record.

Peninsula boxers land another blow PENINSULA Boxers, Rueben Higgins and Bailey Seabourne, have walked away with two dominant victories at the Reggio Calabria Club on Sunday 16 September. Seabourne made it a winning return to the sport after having more than two years out of the ring. In his first time fighting as an elite boxer and under his new head coach Marcos Amado, Seabourne rose two weight divisions and easily accounted for his opposition, giving him a standing eight count before claiming the victory via technical knockout in the final round. Peninsula Boxing head coach Marcos Amado said it was great to see Seabourne return a winner. “He was given the option to return to boxing and he didn’t want to be anywhere else,” Amado said. “He’s set to represent Victoria in the 56kg division but he ended up going to the 64kg division to find a fight and he still stopped his opponent convincingly. “It had been hard to find him an opponent as he’s very experienced, a two time national champ, and everyone was just reluctant to get in the ring with him. “His win will probably make it even harder now to get a fight unfortunately, but he’s on the way up.” Rueben Higgins also claimed a hard fought victory over a tough opponent. Amado said for a boxer of only three fights experience, he looked far more seasoned.

“He’s undefeated since making his comeback.” Higgins then backed up his victory on Saturday 22 September in Tasmania alongside fellow Peninsula boxers, Christine Ng and April Franks.

Franks was first in the ring against a Tasmanian favourite and despite putting in a dominant performance, the final decision didn’t go her way. Franks was further awarded as the most outstanding female fighter for

her performance. Amado was in disbelief following the split decision. “What can I say apart from we won but didn’t get the decision,” he said. “I hate losing like this as it strips

her of all the hard work that has gone into the preparation but we will move forward and use this as another motivation to work harder at our goals. “Hopefully we’ll meet the same opponent on neutral ground down the track.” Higgins backed-up his victory the week prior, with another dominant display of controlled aggression against a man nine years his senior. He made sure the decision was left beyond doubt. Higgins gave two separate eight counts and forced his opponent to retire after only a minute and a half into the opening round. Amado said Higgins was adamant that it wouldn’t last the distance and that it wouldn’t come down to a final decision. “It’s very rare for someone to retire like that with all the padding on the helmets and gloves at that level,” he said. “It really showed how dominant he was on the night.” Christine Ng also entered the ring in an exhibition fight. Amado said she looked composed and much improved throughout the bout. “It was good for her to get in the ring with no pressure and just focus on the experience,” he said. “It would have helped her work on her nerves and ring craft to take into the ring next outing.” Ben Triandafillou
