Lyle supports Rosebud Country Club’s Big Day PGA Tour star Jarrod Lyle will be the face of the 40th year of the Rosebud Country Club’s Cancer Research Golf Day. Jarrod has taken time out from his busy schedule to be at the club as guest speaker. Jarrod said he was looking forward to supporting the Cancer Council of Victoria and he praised the Rosebud Country Club on 40 years. “To have run this golf day for 40 consecutive years is an outstanding achievement,� Lyle said. “As a golf professional, it makes you really proud that a club like Rosebud Country Club is making a real difference.� Jarrod will speak to golfers at the dinner. He’ll talk about his own fight with leukaemia and life on the PGA Tour playing alongside the world’s best golfers. Jarrod is arguably one of the most likeable professionals in Australian golf.

PGA Tour star Jarrod Lyle

Now living in Torquay, Jarrod knows how to connect with people on all levels. The annual Cancer Research Golf Day is open to all golfers.

BIG DAY Rosebud Country Club’s Golf Day Making a Difference ROSEBUD COUNTRY CLUB’S

THE years and dollars might be easy to count, but the far reaching impact of the Rosebud Country Club’s Annual Cancer Research Charity Golf Day is difficult to quantify. After all, how do you measure help? The event’s 40th year is a phenomenal milestone – to put it into context that is twice as long as Australia’s Biggest Morning Tea has been running. In fact, that is longer than all Cancer Council Victoria’s major fundraising campaigns have been running, including Daffodil Day. Over the past four decades, the Rosebud Country Club has raised more than $400,000 through the event for cancer research, prevention campaigns and support programs of the Cancer Council. Todd Harper (pictured), CEO of the Cancer Council, praised the club for its on-going commitment year after year. “The Rosebud Country Club does

an amazing job each year hosting this event and it is wonderful to see such a high level of support from not only the club and its members, but the broader community as well. We couldn’t carry out our important work without such support.” Advances in the prevention and treatment of cancer are constantly being made thanks to the work of researchers. Last year, Cancer Council Victoria spent $24.4 million on research and is proud of the part it has played in seeing survival rates improve from 47% in 1986-1990 to an all-time high of 65% in 2006-2010. The Cancer Council has also been responsible for some of the most successful public health education campaigns like SunSmart. We know one in three cancers can be prevented, and that’s why it is important the public is well informed. Every day, another 78 Victorians

are diagnosed with cancer, and the Cancer Council provides people with a range of support services. “The work that we do is humbling and it is wonderful to see the positive results that the Cancer Council can make on someone’s life,” Mr Harper said. “No one should battle cancer alone, and here at the Cancer Council we strive to ensure that no one has to.” Cancer Council Victoria has had a long-standing golf program that allows golf clubs and companies to host a day and raise funds for the Cancer Council. Mr Harper encouraged anyone who is keen on the sport to register for Rosebud Country Club’s event. “While not a golfer myself, I can appreciate the highly-skilled nature of the sport,” Mr Harper. “Golf enthusiasts or those who keen to give it a go shouldn’t miss this event – it’s going to be a special day.”

Volunteers underpin Golf Day THE annual Rosebud Country Club Cancer Research Day has grown from humble beginnings to become of the Mornington Peninsula’s most important fundraising events. Former RCC professional Russell Wilson and long time Lions club member Jeff Maxwell were both involved in its inception and played a significant contribution over many years.

What started through the local Lions Club has now become a permanent fixture of the Rosebud Country Club calendar. RCC member Gordon Woods has been the face of the golf day for the past 18 years. And while many others provide valuable support, it’s Gordon’s involvement in recent years that has ensured its ongoing success. Gordon will be out promoting

the day to local business. And the Cancer Council, along with local Federal member Greg Hunt, state member Martin Dixon and the Mornington Peninsula Shire Council, encourage locals to support the 40th year of this important fundraiser. Anyone wanting to make contact with Gordon Woods can contact the Rosebud Country Club on 5950 0800.

Greens quarry to park plan VICTORIAN Greens MP Sue Pennicuik has asked Environment Minister Ryan Smith to include the old Pioneer quarry in Arthurs Seat State Park. Ms Pennicuik made the request when speaking in Parliament on 4 September. “My request to the minister is that he acts now to negotiate with the R E Ross Trust and Peninsula Waste Management to incorporate the whole of the old Pioneer quarry site into Arthurs Seat State Park as a natural legacy to be appreciated by generations to come,” she said. Peninsula Waste Management is owned by the Ross Trust. It is seeking

Environment Protection Authority and Mornington Peninsula Shire approval to convert the old quarry into a municipal rubbish tip that would take up to 150,000 tonnes a year from the peninsula and other municipalities. “While R E Ross himself operated quarries, including Hillview quarry in Dromana, one of the three core purposes of the R E Ross Trust, established under his will, was ‘nature conservation with particular regard to the purchase of land for the protection and preservation of flora and fauna’, she said.” Ms Pennicuik, who was at the

1000-strong rally in Dromana on Sunday 25 August when objectors formed a huge ‘no tip’ sign, said the old quarry was “a haven for eagles, kites, swamp wallabies and many other species” and was “no place for a tip”. She told the Parliament there was strong public opposition to the proposal from locals and “from people all around Victoria who know and love this unique place”. Ms Pennecuik said the site was supposed to have been converted into a “recreational reserve once its life as a quarry was over”. “This seems a better idea, especially as it is surrounded by

Arthurs Seat State Park.” Lead objector Peninsula Preservation Group says the quarry site would provide a link between two sections of the state park. “This would create a wildlife corridor for native species and the reserve could be utilised by diving groups as a training area for cave diving, be used for bird spotting and a brilliant resource for rock climbing and outdoor education,” the group stated. The EPA is expected to make its decision by early October and the shire will make its decision next year. Mike Hast

Shire weakens open air burning rules MORNINGTON Peninsula Shire Council has done a U-turn and will again allow burning off on small blocks without residents having to obtain a permit. Councillors watered down burning off rules at a meeting late last month. October will become burning off month as there will be no restrictions. The council introduced new rules last September removing “as of right” burning off on Fridays and Saturdays for residents on blocks of up to 1500

square metres (quarter of an acre). The shire was one of the last in the greater Melbourne area to allow burning off and the new rules were praised. Burning off has divided the peninsula community for many years with many saying a total ban would solve environmental and health concerns. Pro-burning residents say the high cost of disposing of waste means they should be allowed to burn. Last June, then-mayor Cr Frank

Martin said the proposed burning off changes would “meet the community’s need to reduce the threat of fire and the negative health impact of smoke emissions in our townships”. On 26 August, councillors led by David Gibb and Andrew Dixon voted to allow burning off “on land less than 1500 square metres” on Fridays and Saturdays 9am and 4pm in October. “All other relevant provisions contained within the local law to address

Music in tune with lifestyle FRIDAY the 13th is a day avoided by many, but not the brave members of Roundhouse who have chosen it as the date to release their first album. The music on First Set is described as surfy punk/rock, inspired by the surfing, skating and music lifestyle of the band’s five teenage members. All five are students at Rosebud Secondary College and are no strangers to playing for an audience including The Espy at St Kilda, Baha restaurant in Rye, and festivals on the peninsula among their gigs. Roundhouse was formed in 2011 by Tom Duell, Hamish Swayn, Darcy Nigro, Felix Ruch and Ruby Nigro. Band members wrote the songs and music for First Set, which was recorded by Chris Swayn of The Warrains. The album is being launched at an all ages, alcoholfree gig in Rosebud Football Club’s rooms at Olympic Park on Friday 13 September. The $15 entry includes a CD of First Set. Entry is free for under 10s.

Shire ‘in the loop’ at Point Nepean

To advertise in Southern Peninsula News contact:

MORNINGTON Peninsula Shire councillors are confident the state government will keep them “in the loop” about developments in Point Nepean National Park. The government is assessing expressions of interest for commercial enterprises in the park’s quarantine station precinct as well as considering conditions for a special use zone and conditions for leases. Cr Hugh Fraser said that although council was yet to see any detail, the state government had indicated it would keep council informed. “I am aware that there is a strong local interest in what is happening and

Ricky Thompson on 0425 867 578 or ricky@mpnews.com.au Southern Peninsula

it’s important that our local community is informed of any developments in the planning process for Point Nepean,” Cr Fraser said. “Council, and in turn the community, will be kept in the loop when any significant developments occur in relation to the expression of interest for investment in the quarantine station, the development of a special use zone, the terms and conditions of any lease or leases in the park, and any discussions regarding the future role of council as the responsible authority for the administration of future planning controls.” Council manages Police Point Park,

which shares a boundary with the 560-hectare national park. Council reaffirmed its support of the Point Nepean Park master plan at its meeting on 12 August, “noting” that “issues” that it needed to address, including its proposed involvement in the preparation of a development plan under the special use zone, to be approved by the Minister for Environment acting as the planning authority and its future role as a responsible authority for the administration of future planning controls.

Lord Nelson leads tall ships into port By Mike Hast BRITISH tall ship Lord Nelson sailed into Port Phillip on Friday and up the eastern shore before berthing at Workshops Pier at Seaworks in Williamstown on Saturday morning. The 55-metre square rigger is one of seven tall ships at the Melbourne International Tall Ships Festival and her progress up Port Phillip delighted peninsula and bayside residents. It will be the biggest tall ships fleet to visit Melbourne since Australia’s bicentenary in 1988. Lord Nelson is owned by United Kingdom charity Jubilee Sailing Trust and is one of only two tall ships in the world designed to be sailed by disabled and able bodied crew. The ship was launched in 1985 and carries 50 people including 38 paying crew. “Seventeen crew can have physical disabilities and four can be wheelchair users,” a festival spokeswoman said. Lord Nelson is on her first visit to Australia, having been invited to the Royal Australian Navy International Fleet Review in Sydney next month for the RAN’s 100th anniversary. Also in Port Phillip on Friday was Young Endeavour with her youthful crew but she will not berth at Williamstown until Sunday. Sydneybased Young Endeavour was a gift to Australia from the British government in 1988 to celebrate Australia’s bicentenary of European settlement. Three Dutch tall ships – Europa, Oosterschelde and Tecla – arrived in Port Phillip from the Netherlands via Fremantle and Adelaide on Friday night and berthed on Saturday morning. They will be joined by Hobart-based Windeward Bound, Sydney’s Soren Larsen and Melbourne-based Enterprize, the replica of John Pascoe Fawkner’s schooner that sailed from Tasmania in 1835 to establish Melbourne. The Indonesian Navy’s sail training

Thar she goes: British sail training square rigger Lord Nelson sails through The Heads on Friday morning, the first of the tall ships taking part in a festival based at Williamstown. The ships leave together on Saturday and will anchor off Rosebud West overnight before sailing out of Port Phillip on Sunday morning. Picture: Yanni

ship KRI Dewaruci was due on Sunday but lost the top section of her foremast and part of the jib boom in a storm off Shark Bay in Western Australia last month. The ship arrived in Fremantle on 24 August but has returned to Indonesia and will not take part in events in Melbourne, Hobart and Sydney. Tall Ships Victoria liaison officer Denis Spinley said it was “a big loss

for us” as KRI Dewaruci was a spectacular ship and was carrying the Indonesian Cadet Marching Band. The genesis of the Melbourne festival as well as similar events between July and October in Fremantle, Adelaide, Hobart, Sydney and Auckland was when the Royal Australian Navy invited 50 nations to send warships and tall ship to Sydney for the International Fleet Review in October to commemo-

rate the centenary of the first entry of the RAN’s fleet into Sydney. The Melbourne festival is a joint venture of Tall Ships Victoria, Seaworks, Royal Yacht Club of Victoria, the Victorian sailing community and Hobsons Bay City Council. Thousands of people are expected to line the southern Mornington Peninsula coast on Saturday 14 September when the entire fleet leaves Melbourne for a planned “Parade of Sail” down the eastern shore of Port Phillip. The fleet is expected to leave Melbourne at 10am.

The fleet will anchor overnight off Capel Sound between Rosebud West and Tootgarook before sailing through The Heads at high tide slack water on Sunday 15 September. High tide is at 10am. The ships will “sail in company” to Hobart via Bass Strait and the east coast of Tasmania.

Link cameras set to roll about the dangers of speeding. “We know that speed is a major factor in about one-third of fatal collisions each year, yet some motorists continue to drive at dangerous speeds, putting the lives of all road users at risk. Low-level speeding can be just as dangerous as high-level speeding, so it is concerning to see about 5000 motorists exceeding the speed limit by less than 10 kilometres an hour,” he said.

“Speeding drivers increase the risk to all road users with the potential for devastating consequences. “Cameras help to reduce death and road trauma on our roads and are an important part of our overall enforcement approach “This is a reminder to motorists to slow down, pay attention and make sure you are driving within the signed speed limit at all times.”

Fish champion of the waves FLINDERS surfer Georgia Fish is the Victorian open womenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s champion after winning every one of her heats on Saturday at Bells Beach. Her win comes after a quarter finals finish at the Pantin Classic Womenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s worlds qualifying series event in Spain. At Bells, Fish put the whole field in a combination situation in the final with a total heat score of 13.50 (out of a possible 20). The win gave her the state open title after winning the Phillip Island event earlier in the year. Second was Kelly Laity of Sandy Point with Grace Day of Jan Juc third and Sapphire Main of Point Lonsdale fourth.

The same 4-5 foot waves saw Cahill BellWarren win the menâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s of what was the final stop of the Toll Victorian Open Series. His victory placed him third overall in the ratings. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It was super hard out there in the final. The swell was inconsistent and the wind had turned strong onshore, but there was still some fun ones if you were patient,â&#x20AC;? Bell-Warren said. Finn Barry of Apollo Bay came second, Caiden Fowler of Blairgowrie third and Jack Perry of Jan Juc fourth. Former WCT surfer Glyndyn Ringrose, of Phillip Island, claimed the menâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s open title earlier in the year.

ELECTION 2013

MPs can make decisions, not just promises By Keith Platt EVERYTHING has changed; nothing has changed. That sums up the federal election result on the firmly tied blue ribbon seats covering the Mornington Peninsula and Frankston. The two areas are covered by the electorates of Flinders and Dunkley, seats retained (again and as expected) by sitting Liberals Greg Hunt and Bruce Billson. Both MPs – formerly spokesmen for the environment (Hunt) and small business (Billson) – seem destined to be ministers in the Tony Abbott-led Coalition and will be expected to bring home the benefits that go with that elevated clout. Both increased their wining margins, Hunt by not as much as Billson, although he was coming off a more comfortable base (nine per cent compared to Billson’s 1.1).

The biggest “sizzle” of their campaigns was left to last on Saturday – sausage sizzles outside polling booths and at primary schools. The treat would not have been lost on primary schoolers being dragged back to school on the weekend. Outside the polling booth in Flinders township itself, how-to-vote cards were being handed out by two mates, one Labor and one Liberal.

They discussed being there during past elections and were preparing to share a coffee from a flask brought by the Liberal spruiker when The News was within listening distance. The only other major discussion at that stage (between 8.30 and 9am) concerned the need of one voter to shift breeding mares from wet and muddy Flinders paddocks to somewhere near Seymour.

local council issue, although Mr Hunt has never shied away from “local” issues); rising sea waters caused by climate change; and developers eyeing off the peninsula’s rural zones and national park. Billson will be expected to turn around lacklustre returns from retailers and manufacturers. Both sectors blame globalisation in one form or another: retailers blame the internet; manufacturers cheap labour and cheap imports. Small business will also be looking for stable political direction, Labor having six small business ministers in six years. In the past three months Mr Hunt has faced two different climate change ministers. But that is for the future. For now, the Liberals are partying and preparing to take charge of the ship of state of which they lost control in 2007.

The sausage sizzle barbecue arrived on the back of a trailer, but we never got to find out if it was private enterprise or a fundraiser. The sizzles at primary schools were unashamedly fundraisers, possibly with a sly dig at politicians who might not want to commit to spending more on education (the Gonski model has been backed by the new government, but only for four years, not the six advocated by Labor). Hunt too might face pressure over the Coalition’s foreshadowed cuts to his portfolio (along with overseas aid one of the softer targets of the new government’s “savings”). On the home front, there will be plenty to contend with over plans to develop the Port of Hastings and the threat of muddying Western Port’s waters with silt from massive dredging; possible oil spills; a tip on Arthurs Seat (primarily a state and

Old rubbish hand back on peninsula ANALYSIS By David Harrison THE prospect of being absorbed into the Metropolitan Waste Management Group has disturbed some Mornington Peninsula Shire councillors and staff. The Napthine government recently accepted a recommendation that Victoria’s 12 regional waste management groups be cut to six and that Mornington Peninsula Shire become part of the 30-council metropolitan group. Veteran shire councillor David Gibb, chairman of the Mornington Peninsula Region Waste Management Group since 1999, has led the fight to fend off several attempts by the government to force Mornington Peninsula into the metro region. In 2009, the shire rejected the previous attempt in a submission to government agency Sustainability Victoria, which was marked “Submission not released for publication”. The peninsula waste group and chairman Gibb clearly wished to retain local autonomy, faced with the prospect of being swallowed by the huge Melbourne group. The peninsula produces about 2 per cent of the metropolitan area’s waste by volume. In an accompanying letter dated 4 December 2009, Cr Gibb told Sustainability Victoria that “this group is enthusiastic about ... contributing to the ultimate Towards Zero Waste targets”. The shire group had rejected the proposed amalgamation with Mel-

bourne at a meeting on 10 September 2009, resolving that “in line with the Sustainable Peninsula and Sustainability Victoria principles, waste must be dealt with on the peninsula and reduce transport impacts”. Cr Gibb’s letter to Sustainability Victoria said: “...We are proud of our ‘closed loop’ approach to waste management, ensuring we don’t burden others with what we produce. “We are equally happy to work across boundaries and collaborate with others for the greater good” – presumably a reference to the shire taking rubbish from Frankston. “Currently we are also engaged with our neighbours about alternative waste treatment solutions.” A few weeks earlier, on 27 October, the peninsula’s waste management group meeting minutes record that

“Mr David Maltby was engaged to review the Mornington Peninsula Regional [sic] Waste Management Group Plan”. This was a sort of reunion for Cr Gibb and Mr Maltby – who is now development manager of Peninsula Waste Management (PWM), which has applied to use the old Pioneer quarry at Dromana as a rubbish tip. Mr Maltby’s CV states he first worked for the shire from June 2004 to April 2005 as waste manager. He was also executive officer of the peninsula’s waste management group – the group Cr Gibb chairs – from November 2004 to March 2007. In this capacity Mr Maltby lists part of his duties as preparing the regional waste management plan. He also stated: “As directed by board, developed strategies to maintain inde-

landfills should only be opened when there is a clear need.” This “clear need” is far from established for the proposed Pioneer quarry tip. Cr Gibb may not find Mr Maltby’s arguments for rejecting Kealba useful in relation to the Dromana proposal. In February, Cr Gibb told The News: “The shire faces the challenge of its Rye landfill site filling fast and its landfill in McKirdys Rd [Tyabb] not satisfying the [EPA’s] 500-metre buffer requirement.” (The EPA buffer zone requirement is also an issue at the Pioneer quarry, with the closest home being 480 metres from the quarry.) “We have prolonged the life of the Rye landfill by the operator diverting up to 50 per cent of waste received ... if we don’t find a new landfill, we will incur massive costs sending waste to Melbourne or Gippsland.” Or Melbourne’s west, as Mr Maltby’s PWM predicts. Cr Gibb’s concern would be partly allayed by the option of expanding the Rye tip – at a price Cr Gibb would seem prepared to pay, even at the cost of further delay to his Rosebud pool – and/or sending shire waste to SITA’s Hampton Park tip, with SITA stating there is room for Mornington Peninsula rubbish for well over a decade. But this does not fit the peninsula’s “closed loop” approach to waste management, espoused by Cr Gibb’s waste group.

pendence of region from Metropolitan Waste Management Group.” Mr Maltby’s new role is to use his expertise to advocate for the Pioneer quarry tip project on behalf of PWM. It is an advocacy role he has played before. In 2010 he wrote a report on the need for a new tip at a quarry in Kealba, near Sunshine in Melbourne’s west. He found that “Unless there is a clear need for a new landfill, development of a new landfill would be contrary to EPA policy”. “The responsibility to prove need lies with the proponent,” he stated The report, ‘Assessment of Needs for Solid Inert Airspace in Western Melbourne’, covered many of the arguments now being put to the shire in support of the proposed Pioneer quarry tip. On available tip space, he stated that “some wastes are shipped [to western Melbourne from the eastern suburbs] ... to take advantage of the lower gate fees”, this being feasible if appropriate transport was used. Mr Maltby referred to Environment Protection Authority guidelines to argue against approving the Kealba tip application. The EPA policy is to “... encourage innovation ... promoting and facilitating the diversion of waste from landfill ... minimise the development and use of landfills”, he wrote. He concluded: “In my opinion, interpretation of EPA policy intent towards minimising new landfills is that new

both for the teenager and the parents. To give parents a hand to make these difficult years easier, beyondblue and the University of Melbourne have produced a new free e-booklet. It aims to provide parents with practical advice on how to help their adolescent children to avoid depression and anxiety. Parenting during the teenage years can be tough anyway, despite it being when the incidence of depression and anxiety starts to increase. And, it’s hard to distinguish normal teenage behaviour from the signs of more serious mental health problems. Therefore, parents need to know the difference and understand how they can help their kids. Because some of the common risk factors for depression and anxiety in young people involve their families (such as conflict and relationship breakdown), it’s hoped parents can

use the advice in the booklet to modify their own behaviour and support their children in order to reduce the risk of mental health problems developing. There are proactive things parents can do to support their teens as they develop into independent young adults: maintain close relationships, stay involved in their lives but encourage them to develop independence, support any challenges they face, and, most importantly, try to minimise conflict at home. How to prevent depression and clinical anxiety in your teenager: Strategies for parents can be downloaded at www.beyondblue.org.au If parents are finding their relationship with their teenager is distressing and hard to manage, they may need to take action to get professional assistance.

LETTERS Labor thanks THANK you to all my volunteers and supporters who assisted me during the Labor campaign for Flinders this election. I am proud that the swing against Labor in Flinders was far less than the national and Victorian swings, quite significantly in fact. I would like to congratulate Greg Hunt on being re-elected as the MP for Flinders and wish him all the best in his new capacity as Environment Minister. I would also like to acknowledge the other candidates, including Martin Rush of the Greens. This was a wonderful experience for me, capped off by five debates with the sitting member and the opportunity to meet Prime Minister Julia Gillard earlier this year. Thank you all for switching on during the last few

Shire misspending WHY oh why has Mornington Peninsula Shire spent some enormous amount of money on pedestrian crossings in the main street of Sorrento and play equipment for children apparently without considering something of far more urgent concern and, I would have thought, something which is its absolute responsibility? This being the public toilets in George St, which, more often than not, are in a disgraceful state. They are overcrowded in summer and as a result often resemble a building you would find in a Third World country. People should not be enticed here unless there are adequate facili-

Good news MAY I offer my congratulations on now publishing a weekly edition of Southern Peninsula News. It is so good to read news that is only applicable to our area, especially when you have lived down here for so many years.

THE FACTS ABOUT THE ROSS TRUST TIP

LOCATION Peninsula Waste Management (PWM) claim that their proposed rubbish tip at old Pioneer Quarry is not near a tourist precinct. It is. Pioneer Quarry is highly elevated on Arthurs Seat escarpment, which abuts the State Park on either side. The park is used by hikers and riders. The site is one kilometre from Red Hill, Main Ridge and Dromana. A multi-million dollar tourist industry reliant on a clean image is within a 4 km radius – vineyards, wineries, restaurants, local producers, olive groves, markets, popular bay beaches. There is not a place in the modern world which would consider a rubbish tip in such close proximity to its protected parks and such valued assets.

Devastation: Recent storms and high tides have undermined and felled mature trees on the Dromana foreshore, the worst damage in living memory according to some residents. Picture: Yanni

Old foreshore trees destroyed by erosion By Mike Hast A SECTION of Dromana foreshore and beach has been washed away with mature trees including banksias crashing to the sand after being undermined. The damage was caused by recent storms and high tides that also eroded other Port Phillip beaches on the eastern shore including Mt Eliza. The worst damage is near where Point Nepean Rd becomes Marine Drive and Nepean Highway at the northeastern end of the beach. Residents say it is the worst damage in living memory. Oddly, sections of the beach either side of the damaged section of about 150 metres are untouched, with sand at the southwestern end near the Old Shire Offices increasing in volume. Rob Tannahill of Dromana foreshore committee said rangers had roped off several access tracks that now end about a metre above the beach. He said the trees had not yet been removed. The committee’s head ranger Michael Everitt was liaising with Mornington Peninsula Shire about the massive erosion. “We’ll probably do nothing for 6-8 weeks to see if it is cyclical,” he said. Mr Tannahill said currents from the south and north meet off Dromana and this may be a factor.

He dismissed a claim the dredging of Port Phillip in 2008 and 2009 had contributed to the erosion but Mt Eliza Coastcare coordinator Jeff Yugovic, a professional ecologist, blames dredging. “We’ve seen the destruction of Portsea front beach, beach boxes damaged at Moondah Beach in Mt Eliza, and dramatic and unprecedented coastal retreat as far north as Beaumaris,” he said. “Port Phillip EcoCentre tide gauge analysis of channel deepening showed Lorne [on the Great Ocean Rd] had a very minor increase in mean high tide consistent with national sea level rise, but Port Phillip had a significant increase beyond predictions in the dredging environmental effects statement,” he said. The shire has closed access to Moondah Beach while it and the Department of Environment and Primary Industries assess options. Dromana area shire councillor Graham Pittock said the loss of beach and foreshore was probably seasonal and he hoped sand would return. The News inspected the beach with foreshore committee ranger Lou McEwan on Monday morning. One section had lost about three metres of foredune and its marram grass. Mr McEwan said it was the worst erosion he had seen in his seven years on the job.

LOCAL SOLUTION TO A LOCAL PROBLEM? PWM’s advocacy for a local rubbish tip defies State Government Waste Management policy “Getting Full Value” www.dse.vic.gov.au – which aims to improve recycling rates and minimise the number of landfills due to their adverse environmental impact. This means fewer landfills servicing more regions. The Ross Trust tip would not be a public-access tip for trailers of household rubbish. It would be for municipal, industrial and commercial use only, predominantly from regions outside of the Mornington Peninsula which have other landfill options. The Mornington Peninsula does not generate enough rubbish to make this landfill economically viable. NO PRACTICAL LONG-TERM ALTERNATIVES? According to the Mornington Peninsula Shire’s recent addition on its webpage, operation of the Rye tip may be extended up to 15 years. The Hampton Park landfill facility has capacity and wants to take all of Mornington Peninsula waste until approx 2030. Taking rubbish outside a municipality to landfill is usual practice. There are numerous alternatives thereafter, including proven technologies which are environmentally preferable to landfill. There is no urgency for a new landfill facility in the east of Melbourne, and a site among protected State Park is certainly not the only option. This proposal is simply a case of the Ross Trust getting their hole approved first. SAFETY PWM’s boast of “the best engineered municipal waste management system in Australia” translates to the most complicated – the pit is 140 m deep, 25 m below the water table, on a hill, in extreme fire-risk bushland. Protection of Sheepwash Creek which runs into the bay at Safety Beach - from contamination depends on incident-free operation of pumps, pipes and the liner for generations, despite countless examples of them failing. The site and surrounds are habitat to numerous threatened and significant animal and plant species. All international research reports high incidence of landfill fires. There have been numerous fires in Victorian landfills in the last few years. Landfill fires emit toxic chemicals. Rubbish tips are therefore not placed in extreme fire risk bushland. Red Hill Consolidated School would be in direct line of fire as it is situated on top of the hill only 1 km from the tip site. YET THE ROSS TRUST PERSEVERE… The Ross Trust has been made aware of the dangers of this rubbish tip as well as the better alternatives available to the Mornington Peninsula and greater Melbourne, now and in the future. Yet the Trust continues to force its commercial venture onto our region regardless.

This tip is not safe This tip is not needed This is no place for a tip No amount of engineering can change this

NEWS DESK

Fact-checking Peninsula Waste Management claims ANALYSIS By David Harrison AN advertisement from Peninsula Waste Management about its proposal to create a rubbish tip in an old Dromana quarry begins: “In recent days, opponents of a landfill being located on the old Pioneer site on Boundary Rd, Dromana, have distributed misinformation about this important issue.” The advertisement contains “facts”, which The News has checked against publicly available information. Local solution to a local problem PWM fact: “It is expected that waste from the peninsula household collection will comprise the majority of the annual landfill.” Fact: The proposed annual waste from the Mornington Peninsula will total about 43,000 tonnes. Total anticipated annual waste dumped in the quarry will be up to 150,000 tonnes, the balance from outside the shire. No practical long-term alternatives

PWM fact: “The Rye landfill will close within five years. The Hallam Rd landfill in Hampton Park – suggested as an alternative – has permission to operate until 2040. However, by 2020 it will be the only site accepting municipal waste east of Melbourne.” Fact: The life of Rye tip can be extended by up to 15 years by opening another rubbish “cell”. Hampton Park tip operator SITA has said it can take Mornington Peninsula rubbish for the next 15 years. This makes irrelevant PWM’s assertion that the alternative to the Dromana tip is landfill at Werribee: Well away from neighbours PWM fact: “The old Pioneer site is located well away from neighbours… PWM has demonstrated that [the environment will be protected and the amenity of the sensitive area will not be adversely affected] is the case at the old Pioneer site. Fact: The nearest neighbour is 480 metres from the site, 20 metres closer than the EPA’s preferred buffer. PWM’s proposed quarry stabilisation

work could bring the tip even closer to neighbours, possibly 100 metres closer. As to the environment, PWM is yet to undertake more than cursory flora and fauna studies. No noisy nights PWM fact: “The landfill site will not be operating during the evening or after 1pm on Saturday.” Question: While PWM seems to have ruled out cracking whips (but they might be back, plus dogs) and running “monofilament” fishing line between trees to deter seagulls, ravens and other tip-frequenting ferals, it has yet to say what deterrence method it will use. It could prefer frequent 140-decibel explosions generated by gas guns throughout all daylight hours. Native species will also be affected by these measures. Trucks will not travel near schools PWM fact 1: “About 70 trucks a day will access the site.” Fact: At least 140 truck movements – almost certainly many more – will occur. All trucks entering the proposed

site will also leave it after tipping their rubbish. PWM fact 2: “The majority will travel down Collins Rd and will use 450 metres of Boundary Rd from Collins Rd to the site entrance.” Fact: The quickest way for tipbound trucks approaching from the south would be to exit the freeway at McCulloch St, Dromana, taking them past Dromana Primary School before reaching Boundary Rd. Otherwise the trucks would have to use Point Nepean Rd for part of their journey Best practice water management PWM fact: “Landfills can be below water tables as long as there is appropriate engineering. At the old Pioneer site, groundwater will be isolated and pumped from a highly engineered pit that is protected by a multiple layer lining system.” Facts: 1. The quarry has groundwater 25 metres deep. The EPA’s buffer guideline for a landfill is it should be at least two metres above the water table.

2. Landfill liners are notorious for leaking. Protecting the environment PWM fact: “Peninsula Waste Management will provide the best engineered municipal waste management system in Australia. It will ensure minimal impact on the environment and surrounding community.” Fact: Even if this is true, no engineering can guarantee a tip will not stink, leak noxious and toxic waste into the groundwater and Sheepwash Creek, attract vermin, spread weeds and emit noise as well as create traffic problems. On top of this, the proposed tip is in a high bushfire area – of which the Environment Protection Authority was unaware until recently because Peninsula Waste Management originally did not tell it. Radiata pines that the property owner Ross Trust has ignored for years are spreading into adjoining Arthurs Seat State Park. Further fact: The Ross Trust states it is a protector of the environment.

Drive for members FLINDERS Golf Club has launched a drive for members. The club is celebrating its 110th anniversary and is staging new events to widen its appeal, including a karaoke night on Friday 13 September, a trivia night on Friday 18 October and a Melbourne Cup lunch. “There is a new vigour at the club and we are striving to let people know that our doors are open,” secretarymanager Tim Reynolds said. “The campaign is aimed at those interested in golf as well as those who want to be more involved in the social side.” Club president Graham Scoffern said the club was a “great venue” for conferences and events. “We would like to be a destination for golf, conferences, weddings and much more,” he said. The club opens for lunch on Tuesday, Thursday, Saturday and Sunday. “Everyone is welcome; you definitely don’t need to be a member to visit our club,” Mr Scoffen said.

Seniors golf ROSEBUD Park Golf Course and Carrington Park Club are running two golf tournaments next month as part of Victorian Seniors Festival. The tournament will cost seniors $26 a day to enter and includes 18 holes, a showbag and light lunch.

Surfer’s ride for road group MORNINGTON Peninsula branch of the Disabled Surfers Association will feature in the RACV’s next annual report and on YouTube. The motoring organisation sent a photographer and journalist to Point Leo on Saturday 31 July to record a demonstration of how teams of DSA member provides a surfing experience to people with disabilities. The motoring group donated $8400 to the branch for two wide-tyred wheelchairs that are used to carry participants to and from the beach. Jenny Angliss-Goodall, of Mornington, volunteered to show how a disabled person can safely enjoy time in the surf and also talk about her experiences on camera for the YouTube video. While on the surfboard, Ms Angliss-Goodall was able to sit upright on a modified Aqua Duck beanbag. The direct selling company Amway has given $5200 for more of the modified beanbags to be provided to other Disabled Surfers Association branches. Keith Platt

Balnarring’s world of small prints AN exhibition of small prints on “leftover” paper by artists from around the world, including the Mornington Peninsula, will open on Saturday at Balnarring. Leftovers IV – organised by Wingtip Press of the United States – features hand-pulled prints and will be on show at Applestick Contemporary Art in Balnarring. Karina Armstrong, who runs AppleStick Print Studio where the peninsula prints were made, took part in Leftovers III in 2012 and arranged for Wingtip to hold the exhibition at her gallery. Participating peninsula artists include Ms Armstrong, Sue Barmos, Kristina Davidson, Fran Henke, Suzy Kepert, Jo Lane, Heather Nye, Sharron Okines and Jade Lee Pavey. “The smorgasboard of Leftovers IV reflects a rich diversity of printmaking styles and was created by 163 artists from Australia to Arizona, Canada to Colorado, Nevada to New Zealand, Korea to Kansan, Wales to Washington and places in between,” Ms Armstrong said. “Printmakers always have pieces of paper over, so the print exchange is a perfect opportunity to turn them to good use. “The process involved the artists’ editions being sent to Wingtip in Idaho. After being exhibited in Idaho and Wales, participating

100 YEARS AGO THIS WEEK...

Tennis comes to Tyabb, peninsula loses two well-respected residents Compiled by Matt Vowell From the pages of the Mornington Standard, 13 September 1913. IT has been decided to again restore the game of tennis here, and at a meeting held in the hall for that purpose last Monday evening, a tennis club was formed and a committee appointed to carry out the necessary preliminary arrangements. Mr A. Lester was elected chairman and Mr L. Cole secretary and treasurer. Another meeting will be held on Monday evening, and all those who are interested are cordially invited to attend. Cricket is also in the wind. The annual meeting of the Tyabb cricket club will be called very shortly, and all members and others interested please watch the advertising columns of this paper next Saturday. *** GENERAL sympathy was expressed throughout the Mornington district when it became known that Mrs Flood, relict of the late Mr James Flood, formerly of Oatlands,” Moorooduc, had passed away at her residence in Melbourne on Saturday week last, after a short illness at the advanced age of 92 years. The deceased lady was born in London, England, and came to Victoria about 69 years ago. She was of an amiable and cheerful disposition and a great favourite with all with whom she came in contact. Mr James Flood, who predeceased his wife about 18 years, was a native of London and close on 50 years ago he purchased “Oatlands” at Moorooduc, where he and his family resided after he had resigned from the Government printing office; where he had been employed

for a great number of years. The family to whom we convey our deepest sympathy consists of two daughters and four sons:- Mrs Arnold, Miss Emily Flood (with whom deceased lived), Cr George Flood, Mornington, and James, John and William. The remains were interred in the Melbourne cemetery on Monday, 1st inst. *** ANOTHER old and respected resident, in the person of Mr T. Young, passed away on Tuesday evening. He leaves widow, for whom much sympathy is expressed in her bereavement. *** THE Frankston junior footballers journeyed to Carrum on Saturday, when they met and defeated the locals rather easily. *** THE many friends of Miss Crosbie, daughter of Mr J. Crosbie, shire secretary of Mornington, will be pleased to hear that she is now convalescent after her severe illness. *** A LACROSE match, between teams picked from the Malvern Club, was played in the Frankston Park on Saturday. There were not many spectators, but those who were present followed the game with great interest. *** MEMBERS of the Mornington Racing Club are reminded that the annual meeting takes place tonight (Saturday) in the Mechanics’ Institute. A full attendance of members is requested as very important business will be transacted. *** LANGWARRIN will be en fete on Wednesday, when a sports meeting in

the afternoon and bioscope entertainment at night will be held. The object of the sports club is a worthy one, and given fine weather, their meeting should be a great success. *** A KITCHEN tea and basket social, in aid of the Somerville Fruitgrowers’ Ladies’ Guild, will be held in the Somerville Mechanics’ Hall on Friday evening, September 19. The price of admission is 1s 6d, and an enjoyable time is assured. *** ABOUT twenty young ladies and gentlemen responded to the kind invitation of the Misses Bieri to an evening at “Parkside,” Mornington, on Tuesday last. The guests highly appreciated the attention bestowed on them by their genial hostesses, and a most enjoyable time was spent. *** A HUNDRED thousand pairs of boots are to be worn out in the cause of Temperance in Chicago this Winter, as many Temperance workers have each promised to dedicate a pair of new shoes to the cause, and to wear them out in distributing Temperance pamphlets. *** AT the last meeting of the Frankston and Hastings Shire Council the engineer, in reply to Cr Ritchie, said he thought it would be a good idea if the Council were to write to the Main Roads Board, and point out the urgency of work required on the Main Melbourne road. Cr Griffith moved that the Council write to the Main Roads Board, pointing out the urgency of the work, and ask them when they intend doing it, and what other roads they are likely to take

over. Cr Ritchie seconded, and the motion was carried. *** A PLEASANT evening was spent by members of the Frankston Choral Society and friends in the Mechanics’ Hall on the 1st inst., the occasion being a social evening given by the members of the society. The first part of the evening’s entertainment consisted a of a musical guessing competition, 2 which was won by Miss Rogers, with Miss O’Grady and Miss D Gregory a tie for second. After several musical items had been rendered by members. supper was handed round; and a short dance, to music supplied by Miss O’Grady and Messrs Hanton and Ellis, was subsequently held. *** THESE are days of conferences and conventions of varied descriptions, dealing with almost all sorts of questions. There is now a good deal of stir among the Christian Endeavourers of Australia, of whom there are 80,000 in the Commonwealth, at the prospect of having the Worlds C.E. Convention in their own land in March 1914. In Sydney, where the Convention is to be held, great preparations are in progress. Prominent preachers and speakers from England and America as well as visitors from almost all parts of the world are expected. Christian Endeavourers and friends all over Australasia are making arrangements to attend these gatherings in Sydney. The Victorian C.E. Union is busy making arrangements for the State Convention which is to be held in Melbourne from October 8th to 13th inclusive. The programme, which promises to be some of the best

of its kind, has been adopted. Subjects of vital interest to the C.E. movement are to be considered. It is anticipated that a large number of delegates from all parts of the State will attend. *** A MEETING of the Beachdale Progress Association was held at Mrs Latimer’s store on the 6th inst, when there was a large attendance of members, and the following business was transacted:Mr Martin moved that the secretary (Mr Wilson) interview Cr Ritchie, and point out that the Government reserve between the railway line and Kananook Creek may be suitable for an approach to the new railway station, from Martines road, instead of a road to the east of the line; also to urge the opening up at once of the entrance to the station from Broughton’s road. Mr McInnis seconded the motion, which was carried. Mr Hall moved that the Hon. A. Downward, M.L.A., be asked to assist in securing a school for the district. Mr McInnis seconded the motion, which was carried. Mr Klauer moved, and Mr Martin seconded, that the secretary write to the secretary of the Carrum Downs Progress Association, requesting a delegate to attend next meeting, to confer to Abbot’s road, which is a new outlet to the new station. *** CR Campbell, pursuant to notice, moved at the last meeting of the Mornington Council, that anyone wearing unprotected hat pins in Mornington will be liable to a penalty not exceeding £5. Cr Flood seconded the motion which was carried unanimously.

The meaning of existence (and other short stories)

By Stuart McCullough

Idle thoughts on democracy DEMOCRACY is the worst form of government, except for all the others. So said Winston Churchill. Old “Chuggalugs” Churchill might have thought he was qualified to speak from experience but I’ll politely disagree. I love the way that we, as a nation, go about the whole business, from the sausage sizzle right down to the “people’s forums” in which impartial and undecided voters are shoved into a room to ask thoughtful, insightful questions while a Twitter feed from blatantly partisan observers – with tags such as Gransterman, The Nooger Man and the terrifyingly named Thundernuts – are broadcast below. Democracy throws into sharp focus the best and worst of all we have to offer. When else are we going to hear about the “suppository of human knowledge” or learn that not everyone likes getting their makeup done? So to all the candidates who summoned the courage to throw their hat – whether bowler, hard or one of those with a cup holder, straw and the words “Foam dome” scrawled across the front – into the ring, I salute you. For I know all too well how it feels to lay yourself bare under the democratic spotlight. Tyabb Primary School decided to introduce a “house system”. Despite what the name suggests, it did not mean we were suddenly allowed to study indoors. Rather, that students

would be broken up pretty much randomly into four groups. Sadly, the four houses were named after colours: blue, gold and two others I can’t presently remember but, for the sake of convenience, I’ll refer to as magenta and antique white. I’d thought it ridiculous, suggesting instead the houses be named after either the Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse or members of The Beatles. We went to church every Sunday and, even at a young age, I took the four horsemen extremely seriously. I would sit in the pew in terrified awe as the minister gave a sermon on the Book of Revelations and how the

horsemen – Pestilence, War, Famine and Trevor – would one day sweep down on an unsuspecting earth. Such was my devotion I even had a number of their albums. To this day, I’ll occasionally slip a copy of Frankie Valli and the Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse on to the hi-fi as I do the housework. My other great passion was The Beatles. Sure, they’d broken up years earlier, but I’d become obsessed with a cassette entitled The Beatles Ballads that my father got free with a TimeLife magazine subscription. When my family got sick of the Apocalypse, we listened to The Beatles.

You can’t tell me being a member of either Pestilence House or Ringo House wouldn’t have been wonderful, but the idea was rejected at a hastily convened staffroom meeting. To avoid conflict, family members were lumped together, so all five McCulloughs were assigned to Gold House. This, presumably, was based on the principle that “a house divided cannot stand”. But being in a house was not enough – the school demanded there be house captains. We’d never had house captains before and I had no idea what powers house captains might wield. Would they be able to marry people at sea? Or, if not, at least be entitled to wear a blue blazer, white cap and stare off into the distance? Whether wearing a hat can fairly be described as “the trappings of power” is a matter for debate, but I was enthralled. However, being somewhat shy, I never for a moment dreamed I could aspire to the exalted rank of house captain. The odds of winning a popular vote were stacked against me. For starters, at that time I had Ringo Starr’s haircut circa June 1964, only blond. I wasn’t especially popular with other kids either, with my dominance of spelling bees serving only to alienate me from my peers. However, Tyabb Primary School was pretty small then and once the pupils were divided into four houses,

the groups only had about 30 or so kids in each of them. When a call for volunteers failed, the bony finger of both fate and Ms Hocking was aimed squarely in my direction. Caught off guard, I instantly assembled my pitch for election. I would, obviously, change our name to Pestilence House. And I’d make sure that kids everywhere had the right to demand a Beatle bowlcut. Although these were obviously wonderful policies, there was another factor at play – nepotism. In a group of 30, I had two brothers and two sisters. Surely, this would be enough to swing the vote in my direction? Or it would be if I could count on their votes being cast in my favour. Looking around the room, I couldn’t help but notice that my siblings were studiously avoiding eye contact. I had no idea what was going on. If only the thoughts of Gransterman and Thundernuts had crawled in front of me. In those days, we didn’t go in for secret ballots; a simple show of hands was enough. As palms reached skywards at the sound of my name, my brothers and sisters remained unmoved. I won, but my term in office was riddled with controversy after I attempted to abolish lunch orders. I may have won the election, but I lost the war. My siblings, I suspect, knew better than I did. They at least, if not the people, had spoken. stuart@stuartmccullough.com

At the Bendigo it starts with U.

Tigers roar for first flag in 42 years NEPEAN LEAGUE By Andrew ‘Toe Punt’ Kelly DROMANA won its first senior premiership since 1971 on Saturday when it led all afternoon to smash arch-rival Sorrento by a massive 13 goals. It was a sensational day for Dromana Football Club, which also won the reserves premiership, beating Sorrento by 54 points. While it was a tremendous day for Dromana, it was a sorry one for Sorrento. The Sharks did well to get all three teams into the grand final, but lost all three games when Somerville started grand final day with a massive 65-point win in the under-18s. Dromana was primed to win the Nepean League grand final after the heartbreaking, two-point loss to Sorrento last year. The Tigers knew where they needed to improve, were aware of the personnel they needed to achieve the improvement and dedicated themselves for a whole year. Dromana Football Club made decisions and sacrifices to achieve success. When you come up against powerhouse Sorrento Football Club, you have to tick every box to be competitive. Dromana did this all season and while it lost the opening game of the year, from that point on it was the best side in the competition. People scoffed at Devon Meadows coach Brent Clinnick earlier in the season when he said Dromana was the best country football side he had ever seen. After the final siren at Frankston’s Kars St Oval on Saturday, a deadpan Gavin Artico told The News “we have all just witnessed the best side in the

history of Nepean this afternoon”. It was hard to argue with the now two-time premiership coach. His charges had just spent the previous two hours dismantling a team that hadn’t lost a game all season and was looking for four premierships in a row. Sorrento players came into the game sore after a tough loss to Dromana in the second semi-final and a bruising encounter against Rosebud in the preliminary final last weekend. Let’s be honest, the Sharks were there to be beaten. Dromana certainly did that – from the first bounce of the afternoon to the 31-minute mark of the last quarter when the siren sounded. As is the case with all grand finals, there was an interesting side story to come out of the week. Matt Neratzoglou, who played 14 games this season, was dropped from the team on Wednesday night and Beau McMurray brought in. Dromana needed an advantage over Sorrento and it was going to be provided by more run and pace as well as the ability to trap the ball in their forward half. McMurray provided this after two best-on-ground displays in his previous two matches. Neratzoglou provided another tall forward option, but had only managed 23 goals in 15 games in a side that boasted a winning margin of 92 points in 2013. It was a tough decision to make. Bringing in McMurray was the right thing to do for the team and club to win a premiership. His selection was vindicated in the opening quarter when he dominated and kicked a goal, one of two for the afternoon. There was another twist in the opening quarter when Dromana ruckman

Luke O’Neil was felled off the ball. He was knocked out, carried off on a stretcher and failed to return, even after the final siren. Dromana is sure to provide videotape to the league. The incident left the Tigers with three on the bench. While you don’t want to lose players in a grand final, it almost worked in favour of the Tigers. Number one ruckman Michael Falconer played his best game of the season, needing to shoulder the ruck load predominantly on his own. Falconer was aggressive, imposing and dominant. It also meant Stuart Cleeve needed to step up, a responsibility he accepted with relish. He threw himself into the contest and booted an important goal. The Dromana back six has been superb all season and the same occurred on Saturday. Dromana’s Jay Neratzoglou dominated Sorrento’s Ben Schwarze and Michael Hunter beat Leigh Poholke. These were two key match-ups and Dromana came out on top, comfortably. The other four defenders in Christian Ongarello, skipper Rikki Johnston, Shaun Clarke and Adam Hunter were also superb all afternoon. Dromana has a wealth of talent in the midfield including Adam Hunter as well as Sam and Daniel Guerts, Paul Minchington, Liam Hogan, Ryan Slocombe, Toby Banks and Braeden Dennis. Hogan and Slocombe are underestimated in their roles. They work tirelessly in and under, do a lot of the hard stuff and get the ball out to the runners. Paul Minchington is a little magician and his attack on the footy can never be questioned.

Jarred Wood also uses his strong body to perfection and ensured every hit was a big one. Dromana’s only weakness in the second semi-final was its forward line and its inability to hold the ball inside its 50-metre arc. There was no such problem on Saturday. Anthony Bruhn was at his Team of the Year best with five goals, Toby Banks finished with three goals after a great tussle with Sorrento skipper Benny McCormack, Daniel Waddell had a slow start but stormed home with three majors through pure hard work, and Dan Gormley provided electricity and unpredictability that we come to expect from him. All Dromana players performed well but best of them was Terry Wheeler. He dominated on the wing, had 30 possessions and finished with two goals. It was Dromana’s run and carry that won the game. Sorrento was shocked early when Leigh Treeby injured his thigh. He was ineffectual after quarter time. Troy Schwarze stepped up in Treeby’s absence before he too was injured. It was a case of managing the best they could after half-time. The Tigers sensed it was time to go for the kill in the third quarter and responded with 7.1 to 0.1. That was the game right there. It hasn’t been Dromana’s way this season to take the foot off the pedal when in front. They booted 6.2 to 2.1 in the final 31 minutes to really make a grand statement. A Dromana premiership was a fitting result for the best team in the competition this season.

Eagles fly from spooners to grand finalists PENINSULA LEAGUE By Andrew ‘Toe Punt’ Kelly A MATTHEW Kremmer-inspired Edithvale-Aspendale has come from behind to advance to the Peninsula League grand final next Sunday. Edi-Asp booted five goals to two in a frantic last quarter against Frankston YCW to win 11.17-83 to 11.12-78. The Eagles dominated general play in the final term, but almost kicked themselves out of it with 10 behinds in the final 30 minutes. Frankston YCW was looking for its fourth premiership in as many seasons in 2013 and appeared to be in the box seat at three-quarter time on Sunday at Frankston Park when it led by 14 points. However, Edi-Asp full-forward Matthew Kremmer booted four goals in the last quarter to help get his side over the line. Kremmer finished the afternoon with a game-high seven goals. The Eagles will be attempting to be the first side to go from a wooden spoon to the premiership in two seasons when it faces Bonbeach in the “big dance” on Sunday. Bonbeach will be looking for its first premiership since 1984. It was a see-sawing battle all afternoon between the Eagles and the Stonecats. The teams had met twice during the season, the Eagles smashing the Stonecats by 50 points on the Queen’s Birthday weekend. They met again in round 18, when YCW came from seven goals down in the second quarter to record an 18-point win.

This game was always going to be a classic, despite the fact the Eagles had to come from an elimination final. Edi-Asp kicked the first two goals of the match through Jeremy Heys and Brad Tagg before the Stonecats responded with three of their own in six minutes.

snagged his first for the day. Adam Budge booted a goal at the 18-minute mark and Kremmer kicked his second in time-on to give the Eagles the lead at the major break. As expected, YCW came out charging in the third quarter through their skipper Anthony Barry as well as Craig Nankervis and Byron Barry and dominated the quarter, booting six goals to one. The Stonecats were running on top of the ground and looked to be the winners at three-quarter time. However, Timmy and Stevey Mannix, along with Tagg and teenage sensation Bailey Dale, refused to throw in the towel. As we have seen on many ocassions this season in Peninsula League, if you can hang in a game long enough, you have every chance of winning. The Eagles kicked the first of their five last-quarter goals at the eightminute mark of the last quarter and then booted the next two to make it a real game. The Stonecats responded with one, before the Eagles kicked two of the last three to get over the line in an absolute thriller. The final Kremmer goal came well into time-on. In the Reserves, Seaford got the job done against Mt Eliza to advance to the grand final against Langwarrin this Sunday. In the Under-18s, Frankston YCW earned another shot at Mt Eliza after beating Seaford by 16 points.

David Bodley booted two first-quarter goals and finished the afternoon with four while Ricky Morris added one to give the Stonecats a 10-point break at the first change. The teams went toe to toe in the second quarter before Kremmer broke the drought at the 10-minute mark and

SOUTHERN PENINSULA scoreboard

Teams of year ‘clear cut’ PENINSULA League and Nepean League coaches have voted for their teams of the year. The poll was organised by The News’s football writer Andrew “Toe Punt” Kelly. There were 52 players nominated in Peninsula and 56 in Nepean. “Players with the most nominations from coaches were selected. The teams picked themselves,” Toe Punt said. “Unlike previous years, the 22 players selected in each team received the majority of support from coaches. “There wasn’t the situation we’ve had in previous years where there were a lot of players on similar votes and we were forced to make hard decisions. “This year, there was overwhelming support for the 22 selected.”

Artico quits DROMANA premiership coach Gavin Artico announced his resignation from the club a week before Saturday’s grand final victory. It was an amicable separation between the club and the two-time premiership coach. Artico will be keenly sought by a number of clubs looking to take the next step. His two former clubs, Frankston YCW and Langwarrin, are believed to be keen to recruit Artico, a life member at YCW and a premiership player and coach at Langy.

Movement at Shark Park SORRENTO premiership coach Troy Schwarze is keen to reignite his coaching career next season. The rumour doing the traps is he wants to lead another club next season. His brother Ben and Caydn Beetham might join him at a new club. There wouldn’t be too many clubs who could afford the trio. It is also believed James Hallahan has expressed interest in playing in the WAFL or SANFL next season in the hope of having another crack at the AFL. While on Sorrento, Leigh Treeby has been tipped to take over the coaching reins from team of the year coach Nick Claringbold.

League medal night SORRENTO’S Leigh Treeby was crowned Nepean League medallist on Monday night last week. Treeby finished on 27 votes, six clear

of teammate Caydn Beetham. Red Hill’s Ryan Blake won the Reserves medal while Red Hill teenager Corey Wood won the Under-18 medal. Rye’s Rhett Sutton was crowned the league’s Most Valuable Player. In Peninsula League, Pines’ Jamie Messina won his second medal, joint winners with Mt Eliza’s Rohan Heasley. Bonbeach’s Scott McDonald, who won the Most Valuable Player Award, was runner-up. Langwarrin’s Michael Hatch won the Reserves medal and Langwarrin’s Blake Harkness the Under-18s medal.

New regional manager AFL South East Commission has announced the appointment of Jeremy Bourke as region general manager. The commission said Bourke had a proven track record as a “strategically minded football administrator” having previously worked with the VAFA in a football operations role and more recently as the CEO of Northern Football League where he worked “diligently to change the culture and public perception of Northern Football League, which is now viewed as a professional community football league”. The position was created after the AFL’s 2011 review of football in country Victoria. The review found football needed a change of governance structure to provide greater strategic focus, more effective decision-making at a regional level and an investment in resources directly in regions. Bourke will oversee the development of a strategic plan for the southeast region and report to the AFL South East Commission.
