Students ‘belong’ on stage

Picture: Yanni

THE trials and tribulations of being a teenager and the many pressures to be part of a group or a community are being acted out by a group of Rosebud Secondary College students. The production sets out to “unpack the complexity of belonging” under the direction of Gerard Van Dyck, of the Melbourne-based dance theatre company KAGE. The partnership between Van Dyck and the college sees To Belong or Not To Belong incorporate dance, music and storytelling investigate the act of participation. “Together they [the students and Van Dyck] have examined notions of belonging to their community, of retaining individuality, the strengths and misgivings that belonging to a group may imply, the absurdities of everyday life as a 14-year-old, and basic elemental forces inspired by living on the Mornington Peninsula,” project coordinator and drama teacher, Anthea Mackenzie said. The students are members of the college’s performing arts stream class, a specialist program. “We all have a need to be seen, heard, understood and appreciated,” Ms Mackenzie said. “And adolescence is a challenging time where belonging is paramount. How teenagers navigate the tricky terrain of remaining true to who they are as individuals while gaining membership into a desired group is a particularly relevant and timely idea to explore. Tickets to To Belong or Not To Belong, Southern Peninsula Arts Centre, 7pm Tuesday 19 September are available at the door on the night. Proceeds go to the Crisis Centre Rosebud.

Hot springs ‘no’ in green wedge Keith Platt keith@mpnews.com.au A PLANNING application for a multi-million dollar hot springs and restaurant complex near Rye has been refused by Mornington Peninsula Shire because the proposal was “contrary to the purpose of the green wedge zone”.

A failure by the applicant to “adequately address unknown environmental issues regarding groundwater contamination”, was one of eight reasons the shire gave for not permitting the complex planned on a 15-hectare site in Browns Rd, Fingal.

Zouzoulas said the proposal “satisfactorily responds” to relevant planning policies “in particular, the objectives of the green wedge zone”. The hot springs development is planned on the Hilltonia Homestead bed and breakfast property, which lies between the northern part of the Moonah Links Resort and the shire’s Rye landfill. Peninsula Hot Springs is about

one kilometre south. Cr David Gill later predicted an appeal against the failure to secure a permit would be made to the Victorian Civil Administrative Tribunal (VCAT). “This was a very important vote on what we [councillors] consider as being appropriate for the green wedge. It’s the type of development that usually ends up in VCAT,” he told The News

Siege ends with a bang and bite Stephen Taylor steve@mpnews.com.au A ROSEBUD man who held members of the police special operations group at bay for eight hours, overnight Monday 4 September, is being questioned over the fatal shooting of a 31-year-old man in Rosebud the previous night. The Mt Waverley man was found in the passenger seat of a car with a gunshot wound to his head, 8pm, Sunday 3 September. He died in hospital Monday night. Leading Senior Constable Melissa Seach, of police media, said the 30-year-old, of Ocean St, was arrested in the early hours of Tuesday 5 September after police negotiated with him throughout the night. Two loud bangs were heard before police and a siege dog stormed the house and arrested the man. He was taken to Frankston Hospital and treated for dog bite wounds. The man is in custody and will be interviewed by Homicide Squad detectives over the shooting in Eastbourne Rd.

It’s over: A man is placed in an ambulance after the siege in Ocean St, Rosebud. Two days later police conducted a land search at Dromana and underwater at Mt Martha.

No charges had been laid, Wednesday. Police and SES crews on Thursday were searching an area near Palmerston and Lugano avenues, Dromana,

possibly for a weapon which may be linked to the fatal shooting in Rosebud on Sunday 3 September. Later in the day, police divers searched the Balcombe Estuary, near

the Esplanade, at Mt Martha. “Police were in Rosebud and surrounds yesterday as their investigation into a fatal shooting which occurred on Sunday night continues,” a police

spokeswoman said. Anyone with information is urged to contact Crime Stoppers 1800 333 000 or file a confidential report at crimestoppersvic.com

One lane plan ‘will cause traffic jams’ RESIDENTS have raised concerns about a proposal to make Point Nepean Rd to a single lane each way as it passes through Rye. A petition with 659 signatures opposing the move outlined in a draft township plan was doing the rounds Friday in the lead-up to a community drop-in session at Rye Civic Hall, 6-8pm, Thursday 14 September. Mornington Peninsula Shire councillors last month agreed to place the plan on public exhibition for six weeks. The shire issued a statement saying the plan had been “developed in close consultation with the community, sets the strategic vision and direction for the improvement of the foreshore, streetscape and town centre of Rye”. However, petition organiser James Alexander, of Rye, said the plan was “done without a study into the flow-on effects for surrounding roads”. “They plan on building a raised medium strip with angled parking, creating the perfect situation for a permanent traffic jam over summer,” he said.

“Imagine waiting for driver after driver waiting to park without being able to drive around. “This proposal is flawed in several ways: how will emergency services navigate their way through with one lane and a raised medium strip.” Mr Alexander urged residents to sign the petition so that “common sense can prevail”. “We must voice all our concerns about this project. It will affect everyone,” he said. The plan also includes reducing the speed limit on Point Nepean Rd to 40kph; widening footpaths through the commercial area; providing separate on-road cycle paths; partially relocating foreshore camping between Lyons and Weir streets; and increasing public parks and open space on the foreshore and in the town centre. The mayor Cr Bev Colomb invited comment on the draft plan which will “guide the future development of Rye for the next 20 years”. But an opponent on the change.org petition site added: “It is bad enough through there at the best of times. This plan will make it even worse.” Stephen Taylor

Pupils, students take over the teaching CULTURE, conservation and community were themes explored at this year’s Kids Teaching Kids Week at Point Nepean National Park. Now in its sixth year, last Thursday’s (7 September) environmental youth leadership conference saw more than 200 pupils and students from 11 schools and colleges across the Mornington Peninsula seek solutions to global and local challenges. The conference included workshops and presentations in the historic quarantine station. Discussions included the “war on waste”; “future health” of natural; climate change; food security; and endangered species. Students also showed projects with which they have been involved, such as water wise gardens. Pupils from St Jude’s Parish Primary School presented their composting techniques; Crib Point pupils shared lessons learnt about preserving wildlife through a Zoos Victoria project; and McClelland College made a presentation on the impacts on wildlife of habitat destruction. Parks Victoria rangers gave interactive walks and talks with local experts. “Over the year’s [of Kids Teaching Kids Week] we’ve seen vital community partnerships and mentoring programs form as the students inspire and learn from one another,” Parks Victoria’s district manager, South East Melbourne, Libby Jude said. “As park managers it’s both reassuring to reflect on the passion and wisdom of our young visitors… We are seeing future environmental leaders in the making.”

Point break: Lionel Lauch provides pointers on playing the digiridoo player to pupils and students at this year’s Kids Teaching Kids Week at Point Nepean National Park. Gathered around for the “lesson” are Alexia, Jude, Henry, Tess, Lochie, Eli, Nathan, Maddie, Rebecca, Tori, Glenn, Ritchwick, Gabrielle, Sarah.

New moves in bus review campaign taking in Bungower, Racecourse and Robertson roads to attract retirement village and caravan park residents, schools and racegoers on race days. “We need it to be at practical times, such as starting at 7am, and for a period of at least a year to get people used to using the buses,” he said. Mr Dalmau said bus transport on the southern peninsula was problematic, with residents at Martha Cove being “three or four kilometres” from the new Aldi supermarket at Dromana and “no way to get there except by car”. Also at Wednesday’s meeting was the mayor Cr Bev Colomb and Cr David Gill and the shire’s sustainable transport project coordinator Rita Kontos. A letter from the shire sent later asked: “Would you like to see more public transport on the Mornington Peninsula? “If you or your business is limited to the current public transport provision on the peninsula, please join us in our drive to help improve the public bus services across the region.” The shire’s new Transport Community Action Advisory Group wants the state government to review “current public transport services on the peninsula to provide more frequent services in more locations for our growing community”.

He’s so cute: Visitors liked what they saw at the first Saturday drop-in session at Mornington Peninsula Shire’s community animal shelter, Mornington.

Shelter’s first Saturday SATURDAY morning drop-in sessions began at the new community animal shelter in Watt Rd last week. Throughout the morning, visitors arrived to either pick up a missing pet, find a new pet or to get advice from staff on owning a pet. They were given details of the shire’s rescue group partners who also promote responsible pet adoption. The shelter is open to the public by appointment every day, excluding

Christmas Day and Good Friday, or by dropping in without an appointment on Saturday mornings. Those thinking of adopting a pet can do their research by first visiting mornpen.vic.gov.au/pets to view pets up for adoption. Advice is available on the responsibilities of owning a pet.

MORNINGTON Peninsula Shire is backing a community group’s push to improve public transport on the peninsula. This follows the thwarted presentation of the Peninsula Residential Parks & Villages Group’s 1574-signature petition to state Parliament urging a “complete bus service review on the peninsula”. Despite the petition being rejected because it was “not in the correct form” the group was last week meeting at Mornington library to plan their strategy for another attempt (“Transport petition fails” The News 5/9/17). “We are in the process of getting another petition online as well as in print because a lot of elderly people can’t do the online stuff,” chairman Bob Dalmau said. “We are preparing to hit the streets [for signatures] once again – it’s just a matter of getting out there.” Mr Dalmau is urging people wanting better bus transport to contact their local MPs so they “get the message”. He said the group was getting ready to push for a 12-month trial bus service linking Hastings and Mornington along Mornington-Tyabb Rd, while

Cr Colomb said in an email that the shire was “determined to improve public transport on the peninsula”. “We are constantly advocating for transport changes to meet the needs of our residents,” she said. “We encourage residents and business owners to have their say on this issue to make positive changes for the future.” She said those “impacted by poor public transport” should contact TCAAG@mornpen.vic.gov.au

AN argument over a taxi at the intersection of Main and Barkly streets, Mornington, led to a Mornington man, 24, being knocked unconscious, 4.45am, Sunday 3 September. Police said the man was successful in engaging the taxi but continued a verbal exchange with another man even when it was driving away. The man then asked the driver to stop, got out, and was punched to the ground hitting his head. He was taken to Frankston Hospital by ambulance with what were deemed life-threatening injuries, but “foolishly” discharged himself 12 hours later, police said.

Flicked butt A MAN was assaulted and seriously beaten after flicking a cigarette butt onto Main St, Mornington, 1.30am, Sunday 3 September. Detective Senior Sergeant Miro Majstorovic, of Mornington Peninsula CIU, said the 21-year-old Seaford man was walking with his girlfriend and a mate in the hotel precinct when the attack occurred. He said a Mazda utility stopped and the passenger got out and started punching the victim to the face, causing a broken nose, chipped teeth, cuts and bruising. He was taken to Frankston Hospital for treatment. Detective Majstorovic said anyone who witnessed the incident should call Crime Stoppers 1800 333 000 or Mornington Peninsula CIU 5978 1300.

With Stephen Taylor

in McLaren Place, Mornington, was attacked causing him to fall backwards, hitting his head on the pavement, 3.10am, Sunday 3 September. The 20-year-old was in a car park after leaving a nightclub with friends when another group approached and, after an argument, he was punched. The man’s friends called an ambulance which took him to Frankston Hospital. Detective Senior Sergeant Miro Majstorovic, of Mornington Peninsula CIU, said a Cranbourne West man, 19, later presented at Mornington police station to “give his side of the story”. Police are seeking independent witnesses who may have seen the incident. Call Crime Stoppers 1800 333 000.

Bike stolen A CHILD’S motorbike valued at $1750 was stolen from a property in Hackworth Rd, Rye, 27 August-1 September. Offenders entered the garage and unlocked a roller door to steal the red and white Honda CRF. Anyone with information is urged to call Crime Stoppers 1800 333 000.

Chased by car THREE young men were waiting for a lift on the Baxter-Tooradin Rd, Baxter, when a plastic milk bottle was thrown at them by the passenger of a passing car, 4.45am, Sunday 3 September. The men – both 27, of Berwick, and a 25-year-old, of Frankston, retaliated by spraying the car with beer. Soon after, the car returned and two men got out, one carrying a crow bar and the other a piece of wood. One said, “Don’t throw stuff at my car” and demanded the men’s wallets and mobile phones. They ran off, with their attackers jumping in the car and chasing them, striking two and causing minor injuries.

Coward’s punch

The man allegedly knocked his victim out with a coward’s punch, causing a facial fracture. The assailant is described as 180cm tall, thin build, short brown hair, clean shaven with a sleeve tattoo on his right arm. He was wearing a white T-shirt with the letters NXP in large dark-coloured letters on his upper back. He was wearing light-coloured pants with dark runners and smoking a cigarette. The offender, was accompanied by a blonde woman.

Waste not wanted: Rubbish dumped at Langwarrin last week. Other piles of rubbish have been removed from roadsides and bushland at Arthurs Seat. Picture: Yanni

Waste dumping ‘waste of money’ Stephen Taylor steve@mpnews.com.au THE cost of cleaning up illegally dumped rubbish at the Arthurs Seat State Park and Langwarrin Flora and Fauna Reserve is taking away money that could go to both parks’ upkeep, according to Parks Victoria. Parks Victoria ranger Luke Ashford said weekly dumps of household and green waste, building material, old furniture and timber offcuts, had to be cleaned up by two rangers over an average two hours each week costing $36,000 a year. “That’s money that’s not going back into parks where it should be going,” he said. Parks Victoria spokeswoman Sally Nowlan said the cost of clearing the most recent waste dumping at Arthurs Seat would be about $2500 – more than usual as the rubbish had been pushed over a cliff making retrieval difficult. She said another waste dump “hotspot” was Devilbend Natural Features Reserve, Moorooduc. Mr Ashford said dumpers are even resorting to cutting wire fences so they could drive their waste into parks to dump it. The cost of replacing fencing adds to the clean-up bill. He said ill-informed residents backing onto reserves often just threw their green waste over the fence, thinking it would go unnoticed. This can

spread weeds in the parks harming indigenous plants. Ms Nowlan said the annual clean up cost statewide is close to $1 million. “It happens every week and we are really sick of it,” she said. “It takes massive amounts of time and money to clean it up. “Often the rubbish is recyclable, so why they have to dump it I don’t know. One load even included a bag of dirty nappies. “We are looking at installing surveillance cameras at rubbish ‘hotspots’ because we have to track these pests down.” Mornington Peninsula Shire acting infrastructure services executive manager Graham Riley said it is “disappointing” when rubbish is dumped at parks and reserves. “We encourage the community to respect the peninsula and take care of our environment,” he said. “The collection of dumped rubbish and general litter costs us more than $480,000 each year. The shire provides extra capacity garbage, recycling and green waste bins to residential properties for an additional fee.” Environment Protection Authority officers are always on the lookout for dumpers who face fines of $317 for basic litter but up to $800 for rubbish containing dangerous material, such as glass. Businesses face fines of up to $250,000.

with the 18 objections which included uncertainty about the spa’s effects on groundwater; increases in traffic; loss of native vegetation; concerns that the site was too small for its intended use; effect on livestock; and building designs not being “sympathetic” to the landscape. A planning assessment report prepared by consultants GHD shows ownership the land was transferred to Hao Yang Australia in March 2013 for $3.5 million. A since-lapsed permit issued by the shire in October 2007 allowed a 52-room hotel, conference centre, spa and lap pool to be built on the site. Two extensions were subsequently allowed but a third application for more time in 2013 was refused.

Ms Slamet said it had been decided not to hold a meeting between objectors and the developers because it would have been “unlikely to result in resolution between the two parties”.

Panel called to decide terminal issue Keith Platt keith@mpnews.com.au A NEW ferry terminal at Sorrento has come a step closer to fruition following Mornington Peninsula Shire’s request for an independent panel to consider a planning scheme amendment for the project to go ahead. The panel to be appointed by Planning Minister Richard Wynne is likely to start hearings at the end of October. The hearings will coincide with investigations into the planned terminal’s effect on traffic. The panel’s findings – after reviewing submissions, including those already considered by council as well as the shire’s own positive response - will come back to council for a final decision. Council received 35 submissions on the proposal by Searoad Ferries, including 13 objections. At the end of June Mr Wynne told council he was appointing an advisory committee to “review the design and flow of traffic” from the ferry terminal and its effects on traffic to and from Sorrento town centre. Searoad’s $30 million project for a two-storey ferry terminal at Sorrento also includes extending and updating buildings at Queenscliff. The Sorrento terminal will be 9.5 metres high and include a cafe, shop, souvenir shop, “Museum at the Bay” and offices for the ferry operator. The plan also includes a new ticketing building and a larger staff car park. The terminal will have a retractable boarding gantry for passengers to

board the ferry directly from the building. The two ferries – which operate hourly 7am-6pm daily – each year, carry 1.5 million passengers between Sorrento and Queenscliff. The service is regarded as a vital road link between the Mornington and Bellarine peninsulas and an integral part of tourism infrastructure. The council’s “proposal to facilitate” the terminal plan requires amending

the Mornington Peninsula Planning Scheme. The shire’s planning services team leader Rosa Zouzoulas has stated that most of the 22 submissions supporting Searoad Ferries’ plan were made “on the basis that existing facilities are inadequate and do not promote use of the ferry service”. In a report to council’s Monday 4 September planning services committee meeting Ms Zouzoulas said ob-

jections ranged from the plan being contrary to state regulations regarding commercial use of public land and the need to protect the environment. Ms Zouzoulas said the proposed planning scheme amendment would satisfy regulatory criteria and that “specialist reports” submitted with the proposal “find that heritage and coastal-environmental values will not be adversely affected”. She said the design of the terminal

“adopts a contemporary style … to maximise views of the bay and foreshore areas”. While it would not resemble an “historic building” it was “unlikely to detract from the value or character of the Sorrento heritage precinct”. Ms Zouzoulas said issues raised by objectors “cannot be resolved” and the independent panel should consider all submissions – including one from the shire.

Pier closed for repairs

Stay clear of hospitals

PORTSEA pier will be closed for about two weeks – depending on weather - for repairs. The works will include removing and replacing three piles and surrounding timber. The temporary closure will be effective during working hours with the pier being open to public outside of working hours. Depending on the ability to ensure public safety, partial access to the pier will also be available over the weekend with a safety barrier and signs installed for safety. Parks Victoria said other piers available for fishing or promenading included those at Sorrento and Rye. Parks Victoria is the port manager for Port Phillip and Western Port and manages over 40 piers and jetties. For information on piers and jetties around both bays call 13 1963 or visit www.parks.vic.gov.au

PEOPLE feeling unwell – especially with flu-like symptoms – should avoid visiting friends and family in hospital to limit the spread of the virus. That’s the plea from Peninsula Health, which is urging members of the public to take sensible steps to stop the spread of germs. Those feeling unwell should see their doctor for treatment and minimise their exposure to others. “This is the worst flu season this decade,” Peninsula Health’s executive director of medical services Dr Tim Williams said. “It is vital that we do all we can to keep the patients that we have in our hospitals and rehabilitation services flu-free. “So, those feeling unwell are asked to please stay at home and avoid visiting our hospitals or rehabilitation services.” To minimise the risk of contracting the virus wash your hands frequently with soap and water, throw away tissues after use, clean frequently-used surfaces and avoid sharing cups, plates and cutlery without washing.

Grandmothers locked out of MP’s office Keith Platt keith@mpnews.com.au THE office of Flinders MP Greg Hunt was in lockdown on the morning of Tuesday 29 August as a group of grandmothers protested about the federal government’s treatment of refugees. The protest by the South Peninsula Grandmothers against the Detention of Refugee Children came one week after police forcibly evicted members of a church group from the office who were calling for better treatment of asylum seekers being detained on Manus Island and Nauru (“Police praised by ‘evicted’ church group” The News 29/8/17). “Other members of the public who came were not able to enter to talk with office staff. A woman visiting before our group had formed, could not get in with her request. The door was locked against us all,” Ann Renkin, one of the protesting grandmothers, said. “Towards the end of our [90-minute] peaceful demonstration I rang Minister Hunt’s office from outside the office door. The answer to my request for them to open the door so that I could deliver a letter was refused on the grounds that they had been advised by the federal police to lock themselves inside, and us out.” Ms Renkin said her group had earlier briefed Mr Hunt’s staff about the demonstration and said they would be delivering a letter for him. “We were a small group of law-abiding electors coming to him, our federal representative, to tell him again

that we are very critical of his government’s refugee policies and abusive practices,” she said. “Does our local MP’s distrust extend to all grass roots organisations in his electorate? Do we assume Mr Hunt is only available to electors who agree with him?” The latest protest outside Mr Hunt’s office also came in the wake of reports of a boat carrying six Chinese men breaching Australia’s border security by landing on Saibai Island. An Australian island in the Torres Strait, Saibai is less than five kilometres from Papua New Guinea. The landing would appear to end the federal government’s ability to boast about its long record of preventing boat landings on Australian soil. People from PNG are allowed to visit Saibai without visas or passport. Five Chinese nationals were reported

as being returned to their country after being detained on Saibai. A PNG man and a Chinese man were later taken to Cairns where they were charged with aggravated people smuggling under the Migration Act. Mr Hunt was last week asked by The News for details – timelines and numbers - of the government’s refugee “resettlement agreement with the United States” he had mentioned in a statement issued the previous week. Mr Hunt’s Hastings-based media advisor Samantha Robin replied that the federal government had an “arrangement with the United States for the resettlement of refugees from Nauru and Papua New Guinea who are endorsed by the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR) for referral to the existing United States Refugee Admissions Program. President Trump has confirmed this agreement”.

“US authorities will conduct their own assessment of refugees referred by the UNHCR to determine which refugees and how many are resettled in the US,” Ms Robin said. “Resettlement in the US is just one of the options available to support the resettlement of refugees. Refugees will continue to be resettled temporarily in Nauru, and permanently in Papua New Guinea and Cambodia. “The priority is the resettlement of the most vulnerable refugees, with an initial focus on women, children and families.” Recordings of a 28 January phone conversation between US President Donald Trump and Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull released last month by The Washington Post shows that the resettlement “agreement” is nonspecific on numbers but necessary for the government to maintain its hard-

line stance against refugees arriving by boat. “You can decide to take 1000 or 100. It is entirely up to you,” Mr Turnbull is recorded as saying to Mr Trump. “The obligation is to only go through the process.” Mr Turnbull then assures Mr Trump that the “vast bulk” of people detained on Nauru and Manus Island are “economic refugees” and Australian authorities know “exactly everything about them”. “Let me explain. We know exactly who they are. They have been on Nauru or Manus for over three years and the only reason we cannot let them into Australia is because of our commitment to not allow people to come by boat. Otherwise we would have let them in. If they had arrived by airplane and with a tourist visa then they would be here,” Mr Turnbull says.

Willing to help out AS a school teacher, Judith Mitchell sometimes taught kids who were from disadvantaged families and her heart would go out to them when she saw them struggling to keep up academically or doing without some of the things their peers took for granted. As a result, the Rosebud resident started supporting The Smith Family, a charity with a focus on supporting children academically as well as providing funds for uniforms, school excursions, and camps, among other things. “It’s a wonderful charity,” says Ms Mitchell, 69, who is currently sponsoring a child’s schooling with regular donations to The Smith Family. She is also leaving a bequest to the charity. Ms Mitchell was inspired to do so by her brother, Peter, who believed in what the charity was doing to help children stay in school. Peter, who never married or had children, left a percentage of his estate to the organisation, as well as insisting that his clothing, linen and household items be given to sell in its stores. After she provides for her family, Ms Mitchell is also leaving a small percentage of her estate to the same organisation. “A bequest of even one or two per cent might not sound like a lot, but it is a gift that could really help to improve the lives of some children after I’m gone,” she said. “I’d like these children to think that there is someone out there cheering them on.” Ms Mitchell is also leaving gifts in her will to four other charities that she feels give support to individuals and families in her community. Her remarks come on the eve of Include a Charity Week, 11-17 September, which encourages people to include a charity in their will. About 100 of Australia’s favourite charities support the campaign including The Smith Family, Royal Flying Doctor’s Service, UNICEF, Australian Red Cross, Bush Heritage Australia, Garvan Institute of Medical Research and Cancer Council NSW.

Generous spirit: Judith Mitchell has made a gift that keeps on giving by example. Picture: Supplied

While 89 per cent of people support charities in their lifetimes, only 7.5 per cent leave a bequest to a charity. That’s a number Include a Charity would like to see increase to 12 per cent by 2020 to make an additional $440 million available to charities. Ms Mitchell felt people should acknowledge that others in the community were having a hard time. She thinks about her brother often and is glad to be following in his footsteps when it comes to bequests. “Just as Peter’s bequests inspired me, I’m hopeful that my family will be generous to charities when they make their wills. My gift will, hopefully, be a gift that keeps on giving by example.” For more information about willing a gift to charity, visit includeacharity.com.au

ON THE COVER

//////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////

‘COMELY PARK’ CELEBRATING one of the most majestic locations – and garden – where a dazzling 180-degree panoramic vista of Port Phillip Bay to the Melbourne city skyline is yours to enjoy, this exceptional country residence affords a life of absolute luxury and serenity. The enormous 5717 square metre block has been extensively landscaped over the years with elegant gardens alive with colour adorning the front and rear of the property. An abundant selection of native fauna has been shaped and sculpted to perfection and cascades down the length of the block which gently descends to an ornamental dam complete with viewing platform. From a birds eye view, the home resembles a splendid castle with spires and battlements ready to defend this prized location. The enjoyable reality is that these inspiring angles capture the sun and incredible vistas of sea and gardens so beautifully that they are hardly ever out of your field of vision. The enormous ground floor begins with a wide entry where you are immediately drawn into a huge dining area and lounge room courtesy of the show stopping wall of floor-to-ceiling windows that frame the breathtaking view. Designed in a glorious arch, the nearby kitchen features timber cabinets, two cook tops, a double oven and a dishwasher, and there is an equally spacious family room. To the north-west wing are two bedrooms that share one of three bathrooms – other wet areas here include the laundry and a mud room - and across to the opposite side of this level is the opulent master bedroom where a massive ensuite boasts a spa bath. A separate study tucked around to the right as you enter could be a fourth bedroom if required. Downstairs is a superb games room that opens to the indoor swimming pool and spa, housed in an astounding conservatory, and after your workout in the home gym you can ease away other stresses in the sauna before retiring to the upstairs balcony. This grand home, one of uncontestable splendour, also includes floor heating, ducted vacuuming, a cellar and workshop, and from the road are two double garages. n

‘New low’ in asylum seeker treatment For many years now, I have grown increasingly concerned about the inhumane way successive Australian governments have been treating asylum seekers and refugees who have come to our country by boat. For me, the latest plan to deprive medical evacuees from Nauru and Manus Island of income support and a place to live has reached a new appalling low. Consequently, I jumped at the chance to join my fellow Grandmothers Against the Detention of Refugee Children outside [Liberal MP for Flinders] Greg Hunt’s office in Hastings in order to present a letter and petition imploring the Coalition to reverse its harsh policies on refugees. Imagine our surprise and shock when we found the door to the office locked and no one willing to receive us or our letter even though they knew we were coming. Apparently, the Australian Federal Police had ordered the staff not to open the door, no doubt, on government orders. This is a new low for democracy when voting citizens are unable to present a peaceable protest to their local member of Parliament. We felt locked out of the democratic process. We were outraged, of course, by this treatment but it was nothing compared to how refugees on Nauru and Manus must feel as they remain locked out of our country in conditions that severely threaten their well-being. It is time to give them a fair go. Let’s encourage our politicians to bring them here and allow them to reclaim their lives. Jean Pengilly, Hastings

Running round the clock So, Cr Hugh Fraser has been overseas on another fact-finding trip. This time he was able to look at industrial waste treatment facilities and their operation (“China trip seeks new source of power” The News 5/9/17). Soon after a previous overseas trip by the councillor, ratepayers got the Sorrento seawall which was targeted with graffiti within days of completion and continues to represent a major falls risk for some pedestrians. Now we are told that the Metropolitan Waste and Resources Recovery Group would like to see “an advanced waste treatment facility located in Melbourne’s south east, by 2022”. In Europe and the US, these massive facilities operate around the clock with convoys of large, articulated trucks delivering all manner of waste materials – toxic and benign. I hope that Cr Fraser will tell ratepayers where such a facility could be located, either in the Nepean ward or some other councillor’s ward. He might also indicate which roads the truck convoys might use? Wayne Chamley, Blairgowrie

Protests over waste Cr Hugh Fraser might care to include in his report to Mornington Peninsula Shire Council the following extract on waste to energy projects in China recently published by the Yale School of Forestry: “A group of several dozen Shenzhen residents fearing that landfilled waste ash, leachate, and airborne pollutants from the future Shenzhen East waste-to-energy plant will make their way into the reservoir and the air has launched a legal battle to halt the project. Their hope: to force authorities to relocate the waste-to-energy plant away from the reservoir, away from their communities, and closer to lesspopulated areas on the south China coast. Theirs is one of dozens of protests and lawsuits that have sprung up in China in recent years over the spread of waste-to-energy incineration plants, a technology that the central government and regional authorities view as essential to dealing with China’s rapidly growing solid waste problem. Over the past few years, protests against planned incinerators have taken place in Hubei, Hunan, Guangdong, Shandong, Hainan, Jiangxi, and Zhejiang provinces. Several have turned violent, exposing significant public distrust about these facilities.” Bill Holmes, Sorrento

Please back trial After negotiating with Mornington Peninsula Shire over many years to have direct adoptions from its Community Animal Shelter in Watts Rd, Mornington, it has finally happened (“Pound opens with adoption time trial” The News 5/9/17). Thank you [journalist] Stephen Taylor and the MP News Group for the publicity over these years. There is now a six-month trial that started on Saturday 2 September to open the shelter to the public for direct adoptions each Saturday, between 10am and 1pm. Unfortunately, the shire has not advertised this publicly. If you are looking for a new furry member to add to your family, please visit this shelter. Remember, this is a trial, let’s make it work. Help put the community back into our Community Animal Shelter. Doris Campbell, president MPRRA

Lack of interest Since the last election, the Minister for Public Transport Jacinta Allen, has been very keen to announce big increases in public transport to look after her own seat of greater Bendigo, with the spin that, “The Andrews government is listening to locals...” What absolute rubbish. We now read that [Liberal] Nepean MP Martin Dixon tried to table a petition in state parliament of 1574 signatures from concerned local residents about our lack of public transport on the peninsula (“Transport petition stalls” The News 5/9/17). That “listening” Labor government refused to even look at it. This is further evidence of something every resident of the peninsula should know. Dan Andrews and Labor have no interest in us whatsoever. Peter Grey, Rye

MP should have known Nepean MP Martin Dixon has been in the political arena long enough to know if a petition that he speaks to would meet the requirements of the parliamentary rules before he presented it (“Transport petition stalls” The News 5/9/17). I feel also sure that the staffers in his office in McCrae would also be aware. As I have stated many times before, Martin Dixon has had ample opportunity to plead our case for better public transport on the southern peninsula but has chosen not too. For many years, there have been various times when several deputations were made to the government of the day but, to no avail. The Mornington Peninsula Ratepayers and Residents Association organised a bus trip into parliament culminating with a demonstration on the steps of parliament house. Incidentally, Martin Dixon failed to come out and speak to the group. It’s not Mornington that needs an upgrade, as it has several buses pulling into Main St. Rosebud is poorly serviced by the 788. In fact, if you don’t own a car, you are a virtual prisoner down here. I don’t recall the “Peninsula Residential Parks and Villages Group” ever representing itself at any past public gatherings on the southern peninsula. Governments of both persuasions have refused to recognise the plight of the residents of the southern peninsula regarding public transport, so for Martin Dixon’s staffer to suggest the refusal of the petition by Labor was political, is farcical. I wonder just who is being political? John Cain, McCrae

Housing the homeless I refer to Denis Mason (“Unwelcome neighbours” Letters 5/9/17) who seems to be under the impression that I support nine-storey developments in Brighton, Balnarring or anywhere else. I absolutely believe in appropriate planning and in no way support nine-storey developments, but I saw the demonstration against the

Water safety: Flinders MP Greg Hunt joined swim coach and water safety expert Laurie Lawrence and someone dressed as a bird to launch a new app designed to reduce child drownings. Picture: Supplied

Advice online to avoid child drownings SWIMMING coach and water safety expert Laurie Lawrence launched the Kids Alive – Do the Five water safety app with Flinders MP Greg Hunt at Pelican Park, Hastings. “Children need constant and active supervision when they’re in, on or around the water. With the summer months approaching, vigilance is the key to keeping young children safe around water,” Mr Hunt, who is also health minister, said. “Kids Alive is a great program and the new app provides more useful and practical tips to help us keep our kids safe around any body of water – whether it’s the bathtub or the ocean.” Lawrence said the Kids Alive App was free in Apple and Google Play stores and was aimed at parents and young children – with music, car-

toons and ebooks focussed on home, pool, beach and farm water safety. “Drowning statistics in the under-five age group are reducing, but this is not a time to become complacent. Let’s spring into summer and use fun messages via the app to educate parents and young children,” he said. A report published last year by Royal Life Saving Society Australia listed 21 drowning deaths of children under five. “While this represented a 30 per cent decrease compared to the 10-year average, even one death is still one too many,” Mr Hunt said. For details of the app and the Kids Alive – Do the Five program go to kidsalive.com.au/ or visit the app stores to download.

development lead into comments about the fear of drug addicts moving into the neighbourhood. Having seen the failure of housing commission multi-storey dwellings and the isolation they produce I most certainly disagree with high rise housing, but my point is that everyone deserves to have a roof over their head regardless of the reason they are homeless. Ideally I would like to see the homeless housed within the community where they can receive the support needed to change their lives. Mel Farnbach, Balarring

put the rail under road. Some of us are fighting hard to stop this madness. Others are pathetically resigned in acceptance and will complain after it happens. Some are just selling up and moving house. It is sad, very sad, that a beautiful part of Victoria – our home - will be ruined for future generations. Jennifer Wilcox, Carrum

No way out Even those who voted Labor in the last election, did not vote to have their beautiful beachside ruined by sky rail. Most of us in our small Carrum community are angry that this monstrosity will ruin our coastline and way of life. What will be built will not resemble those pretty images you are seeing. Come to Carrum, Seaford and Frankston and see how graffiti appears on any blank wall or concrete. We didn’t vote to have our local access road closed either. They are not just removing a crossing, they are removing a road, our road, Eel Race Rd, which allows us to get onto Nepean Highway. We will only have one way out via McLeod Rd, which is already crowded and dangerous. Our narrow local streets, filling up with high density apartments, can’t cope. We have two schools in the area and all those parents and kids will have to battle their way in and out of the schools. And, what about emergency vehicle access? Historic buildings and businesses are going to make way for a boulevard nobody wants. A shocking waste of money that could be used to

Excessive rates We are curious to find out how Frankston Council can justify the excessive level of rates being charged to householders in the city. Having recently moved from the City of Port Phillip to a property in Frankston South which has a lower capital improved valuation, we are astonished to find that the rates on our property in Frankston South are more than $2000 higher than on our previous address in Port Phillip. Not only is the general rate higher in Frankston but there are added charges, such as the municipal charge $155.60, garbage for a 120 litre bin $321.50 and green waste bin $135.50. These services are all included in the base rate by Port Phillip Council as well as twice-monthly street sweeping and free at call hard waste collection. Both Port Phillip and Frankston have extensive beaches and reserves to maintain in addition to the suburban parks and reserves. If our property was 800 metres further south in Mt Eliza the general rate charges by Mornington Peninsula Shire would be $1187 lower and the waste charge is only $197 as compared to Frankston’s $321.50. What ultra extra special services can we expect to receive from Frankston to justify the excessive level of rate charges? Graeme Burt, Frankston South

100 YEARS AGO THIS WEEK...

Pig a valuable asset on the raffle rounds Compiled by Cameron McCullough THE pig, kindly donated to the Wattle Club by Mr Reeves of “The Grange” Mornington Road, has proved to be a valuable asset, and owing to the public spirit of its various owners, the funds of the Club have benefited to the amount of £7 17s 6d. The pig was won at the euchre tournament by Mrs C. Wood and Mr J. Wells who promptly returned “Denis” to the club to be raffled. This Irish gold mine was raffled on the spot, the sale of tickets realising £1 11s. The winner proved to be Mr Reeves, the original donor. Mr Reeves returned the pig “some more”, to be re-raffled. Thanks to the vigorous efforts of Mrs Reeves and Sgt. Cunneen, tickets to the value of £5 6s 6d were sold. The raffle was drawn at the euchre party on Thursday evening and on this occasion the winner proved to be Private R. J. Crooke, of Frankston. Once again “the pig came back”, as Pte. Crooke returned him to the club. He was then sold by Bruce auction and was purchased by Pte. Crooke himself for £1. The total amount realised was £7 17s 6d. We trust that this truly “dinkum” pig, after his short, but eventful career, will be allowed to end his days in peace. *** CORPORAL E. B Irvine’s (Flinders name appeared in the 336 casualty list as having been wounded. *** THE hon. treasurer of the Frankston and district roll of Honor gratefully acknowledges receipt of the following

donations:—Sir John Madden £5; J H., 5s. *** A MEETING of the Frankston Branch of the National Federation will be held in the Reading Room of the Mechanics’ Institute on Wednesday next, at 8 o’clock when it is hoped there will be a good muster of members. *** A PUBLIC meeting will be held in the Frankston Mechanics’ Hall on Monday evening next for the purpose of considering the advisability of planting an Honor Avenue in Frankston. As this is a matter that interests nearly everyone a full attendance is requested. *** A PROGREESSIVE euchre tournament took place again at the Red Cross Social, Tyabb, Saturday Sept. 8th and as usual there was a splendid house, and the funds will benefit to a good extent. Great excitement prevailed during the tournament. Miss A. Gibson carried off the lady’s prize and Mr Les Potts the gent’s. After supper an hours dancing brought a successful evening to a close. There will be no Red Cross Social on the 22nd Sept owing to there being a big concert and dance on Friday Sept 21st, to be given by the old scholar’s club. *** THE Mornington Junction Branch of the Lady Mayoress’s Patriotic League has just completed its 1st half year and reports as follows. The six officers elected are, President, Mrs W. M. Green; vice-presi-

dent, Mrs Parris; secretary, Mrs A. E. Butler; treasurer, Mrs Smale. During the half year £9 8s has been received in subscriptions from members, £8 2s 0d in donations, and the net proceeds of two concerts added £8 10s 6d to the funds, totalling £21 0s 6d. Material to the value of over £20 had been purchased, leaving a small balance, cash in hand. Fifty-two shirts and 110 pairs of socks have been forwarded to head quarters of the League. *** MR A. E. Lasslett, hon. treasurer of the Frankston and District Roll of Honor Fund has received the following letter from Sir John Madden:Dear Sir. I am much gratified to learn from your letter that the people of our town and district have so promptly undertaken the obvious and pleasing duty of respecting and .perpetuating the memory of those noble men of our neighbors, who saw their patriotic duty instantly, and did it so nobly, too many of them, unhappily, to the extent of giving their young and precious lives for it. I send to you herein my cheque for a donation towards the work proposed, with my compliments. Very truly yours, John Madden. *** THE euchre party and dance, held by the Wattle Club on Thursday evening last, was highly successful. The hall was full and extra tables had to be brought in at the last moment to accommodate the crowd. Mrs Guums was the successful lady player, winning a very handsome

vanity box. The gentleman’s prize was donated by Mrs Jas. Wells, (a silver mounted pipe,) which Mr Adams was fortunate enough to win. The dance which was subsequently held, was thoroughly enjoyed by all. *** AT the city morgue yesterday the coroner (Dr. Cole) held an inquest touching the death of Arnold Addicott, who was killed by a motor car, driven by Mr M. B. Wettenhall, of Flinders, at Hastings Road, Frankston, on Sunday, September 2nd. Sub Inspector Parkin conducted the case for the Police Department. Mr. Horsfall watched proceedings on behalf of the deceased boy’s relatives and Mr Wettenhall was also represented by Counsel. After hearing the evidence of Frank Addicott. (father of deceased), Nellie Addicott (his sister), Harold Reeves, Kathleen Dombrain, Milton Burgess Wettenhall (driver of the car) and Constable Ryan, the coroner returned a verdict that Arnold Addicott was killed by a motor car, driven by Milton Burgess Wettenhall, the death being caused by misadventure and no neglect had been shown by the motor driver. *** Frankston Court of Petty Sessions. Monday, 10th Sept 1917. (Before Mr Cohen, P.M. and Messrs Williams, Oates, M’Lean, and Grant J’s P.) A visitor to Frankston named Edgar Byrne was charged by the police with being drunk and disorderly and using insulting words on 31st August last. Inspector O’Brien prosecuted and Mr Cook appeared for the defendant.

E.C. Ryan, constable of police stationed at Frankston deposed that at half past one on the morning of the 31st August he heard a knock at his door, and defendant was there and said that he wanted a car to take him home. At 12.30 the same day, was on duty in Davey St near Pier Hotel. Saw defendant go into hotel. Followed him in. The defendant had a dressing gown on unbuttoned. Witness asked him if it was not time to get off the drink, and he answered by saying “who the h— are you” When told he was a constable he said. “I don’t care a d— who you are, I know what you want; you want a drink.” Witness then arrested him. On the way to the lockup be offered the constable £1 to let him go. He was afterwards released on bail. When he was charged by the magistrate at the lockup he was very insulting and said “he was shick” and ‘’was a d— fool. Had been down at Garrood’s and had been d— well shick.” When I warned him about his behaviour before the magistrate he did not seem to care and took no notice. The defendant practically admitted the offence, but pleaded that he had come to Frankston under medical advice. He stayed at Garrood’s Hotel and took drink that evening - the first for three years - and it took undue effect. The Bench considered the offence fully proved and defendant was fined 40s or 14 days imprisonment. *** From the pages of the Mornington Standard, 15 September 1917

THE MEANING OF EXISTENCE... AND OTHER SHORT STORIES

A Remembrance of Teaspoons Past By Stuart McCullough IT’S innate. A part of the human condition that is near impossible to resist. Hard-wired into our souls is a need to accumulate and preserve both for posterity and ensure that those who lease storage units for money will never be without income. Personally, I reckon the urge to collect is one of the few remaining remnants of our ‘hunter / gatherer’ phase. Just as a crocodile reminds us of a prehistoric age, so too does our desire to gather take us back to a time when our knuckles hung a little closer to the ground. It’s in our nature to collect souvenirs. No family holiday was considered complete without a trip to the gift shop. These were always the last stop before the exit and the task was to find something in less ten minutes. It was kind like a discount version of The Hunger Games. The gift shop is where we were set free to roam, with the strict expectation that we were using the time wisely to select something that would store this family event forever in our memories. There was, naturally, a strict spending limit. I can’t recall if it was five dollars or a little more, or if the rules of the free market applied and we were compelled to use our pocket money. I only know that choosing was a lot of pressure. It’s worth pointing out that I have two younger brothers and two younger sisters. Whenever we were set loose on a gift store, I could never escape the sneaking suspicion that none of them felt terrified at the prospect of having ten minutes to choose a gift. In fact, they relished it. They would move

PAGE 38

Southern Peninsula News

between the aisles with both pace and purpose as I wandered aimlessly in the vague hope that a suitable item would simply walk up, tap me on the shoulder and introduce itself rather than me having to make a decision. My sisters often went for stuffed toys. When the destination was a zoo, 12 September 2017

there was never a shortage of softplumed creatures to choose from. Largely, these have been left behind, but I suspect that many of them continue to lurk in various cupboards and toy boxes in my father’s house, waiting to be rediscovered. With the benefit of hindsight, soft toys were

an excellent choice. A reminder of a great day / excursion / holiday, those toys provided years of comfort. They served both the present and the past. The youngest of the brothers often gravitated towards a t-shirt. He was happy to declare go the world at large that he had been to Sovereign Hill, Sea World, Kryal Castle or the Zoo. Given the chance, he’d have worn a t-shirt that he’d just been to the Milk Bar and picked up a Wizz Fizz, had such an item of apparel existed. As souvenirs go, t-shirts could only ever be temporary as my brother was, then, still growing at a speed that could almost been seen by with the naked eye. I, however, didn’t feel comfortable with this level of disclosure. My other brother had a knack for the unexpected. When it came to picking something from the gift shop, he’d always select something completely fantastic that gave scant regard to the five-dollar limit. He was then and remains now, incredibly persuasive. Clutching the object firmly in his hand, he’d cajole my father for what seemed like hours. He’d also come up with all manner of ingenious financial solutions to secure his desired purchase. It’s enough to say that he remains the only person I’ve ever known to negatively gear a BMX for greater financial leverage. If only the bike in question had been his and not mine, it would have been fair enough. Souvenirs weren’t just for kids. My father was also an enthusiastic participant. However, for him there was no dark night of the soul as he tried to decide between a t-shirt emblazoned

with the words, ‘I Went To The Big Pineapple And All I Got Was This Lousy T-shirt’ and a coffee cup that claims to be ‘handcrafted’ but was, in fact, mass produced in Thailand. Not at all. My father is a spoon man. He collects souvenir teaspoons, the best of which are displayed on a special rack just outside the kitchen. They represent some of the world’s most exotic locations, like Dubbo, Port Lincoln and Launceston. A few months ago my father went to Europe. I have, just now, received a souvenir of his journey. It’s safe to say that, despite my history of indecision, it’s not something I’d have chosen for myself. Indeed, it’s not something anyone would choose for themselves. It’s a kitchen mitt with the word ‘Portugal’ and what looks to be the Nando’s chicken on holidays on it. While its intended use is to ensure the safe handling of hot items from the oven, I strongly suspect that to try and use the mitt in this manner would result in burns of the most severe kind. I’d have preferred a spoon. Recently, I found myself at Sovereign Hill. It’s a long story as to why; suffice to say I’ve since had stern words with my Sat Nav. But wandering through the exhibits, I couldn’t help but think of earlier trips with my brothers and sisters as we frolicked up and down the dirt streets as though there was a prize for seeing everything in the shortest possible time. Naturally, we left through the gift shop. I didn’t get anything. I didn’t need to. Turns out I still remember. stuart@stuartmccullough.com

Sharks aim to break drought PENINSULA LEAGUE

By Toe Punt BONBEACH will be looking to win its first senior premiership since 1984 when it takes on Frankston YCW in the MPNFL Peninsula Division Grand Final on Saturday. The Sharks stormed into the Grand Final after thrashing Edithvale-Aspendale by 40 points, 13.9 (87) to 7.5 (47). It was a sloppy, hard and contested first quarter but the Sharks stormed out in the second quarter and booted

seven goals to one to set-up a gamehigh 53-point margin at the main interval. The Sharks midfield was absolutely sensational, led by ruckman Dylan Jones, who was clearly the best player on the ground. Tom Hogan was just as important when he went through the ruck as well, giving ‘DJ’ a well-earned spell. Gavin Vassallo, Mark Tyrell and Jackson Casey dominated the centre clearances and prevented the Eagles from getting their hands on the footy

first. Jason Ferraro showed his grunt. In attack, the Sharks set-up with Shane McDonald, Owen Hulett and Trent Dennis-Lane. Between them, they booted 10 goals. Dennis-Lane booted five, Hulett three and McDonald two. Gary Carpenter set up the defensive half, Mark Douglas was strong and James Murnane provided great drive from half back. Beau Bailey showed his class throughout but really found touch in the last quarter.

It wasn’t a great day at the office for Edithvale-Aspendale, who looked flatfooted in the opening half. The Eagles outscored the Sharks in the second half, six goals to four, including four straight goals in the third quarter. However, the Sharks always had the answers. Graeme Yeats tried everything. He threw the magnets around at half time and it appeared to work for a period. Michael Bussey and Chris Wylie were both at the centre bounces in the

second half and mark Mullins went forward – he booted three goals. Liam Harris was the Eagles’ best while Stevey Mannix, Brendan Neville and Matt Clark worked hard. The Sharks thrashed YCW earlier in the season are every chance to prevent YCW winning its fourth premiership in a row. Next week, Frankston YCW will play Mt Eliza in the Under 19s, Seaford will tackle Mt Eliza in the Reserves and Bonbeach and Frankston YCW will battle it out in the seniors.

Bombers to meet Sorrento in Grand Final NEPEAN LEAGUE

By Toe Punt FRANKSTON Bombers will play Sorrento in the 2017 MPNFL Nepean Division Grand Final this Saturday at Frankston Park after beating Rosebud by three goals. In a tight and highly contested affair, there was very little in the game all afternoon in terms of the scoreboard but Frankston always seemed to have the edge, eventually winning 10.11 (71) to 8.5 (53). There were no goals kicked in the

opening 12 minutes of the game, such was the contest. However, goals to Lachy Mew and Keegan Downie saw Rosebud take a five-point lead into the first change. Frankston took the ascendancy in the second quarter but failed to make the opposition pay on the scoreboard, finishing the quarter with 2.5 to 1.1. The second half was very much like the first, contested footy with the battle of defences. Jarryd Amalfi and best on ground Ryan Marks-Logan dominated

across half back for the Bombers while Jackson McRae and Brenton Davidge had the better of Beau Muston and Zac Longham respectively. Frankston defender Corey Buchan got the job on Keegan Downie and kept him to two goals. Unfortunately for Rosebud, there wasn’t another forward that even looked likely to take a mark and kick a goal. The Buds’ decision making taking the ball forward was also questionable, as it kicked to unmarked oppo-

sition players consistently. Ruckmen Ben Dwyer and Ryan Kitchen broke even for the first three quarters, before Kitchen left the field in the third quarter with a hamstring injury and didn’t reappear. With the game absolutely in the balance in the last quarter and Dwyer dominating Corey Micari, the fact that Kitchen didn’t come back onto the ground provides enormous doubt over his availability in the Grand Final this week. The game was always going to be won and lost through the middle and

it was Frankston’s depth of rotations through this part of the ground that won out. Matt Harris was superb, Mitch Bosward and league medal winner Jason Kingsbury were outstanding and Dale Sutton and Alex Harnett were amongst the best players on the park. Sean Downie was magnificent for the Buds and Jack Jarman played his best final, however, the depth beyond that was not there. Some of Rosebud’s bigger name midfielders just didn’t bring their Agame.

Coaches in, out as clubs shake it up By Toe Punt IT was one of the most eventful weeks in local MPNFL football history last week. After news broke that former Sorrento and Rosebud premiership coach Nick Jewell had taken over the coaching job at Pines last Sunday afternoon, just three days later, current coach Pat Swayn was reappointed at the Pythons for the next two years. Jewell accepted the Pines coaching job in writing last Saturday night (September 2), confirmed his position with Pines president Jeff Svigos

after the story broke on Sunday afternoon and then resigned the position on Sunday night. Svigos conceded that the situation wasn’t handled well and resigned his position at Pines. Swayn met with the Pines leadership group early last week and decided to stay on as senior coach. It was confirmed that players and officials of the club were unaware of the Jewell appointment. Swayn said on the RPP Footy Show on Saturday morning that Svigos had been “great for the Pines FC

for many years and made a mistake”. “We all make mistakes and I’m supportive of Jeff staying involved and continuing the path to help us continue to improve,” Swayn said. Two weeks ago, in one of the worst kept secrets in footy, Jewell was set to come onto the RPP Footy Show with Karingal president Troy Callahan to announce his appointment at the Bulls for three seasons. Pines made a better offer. So what was the fallout? Karingal was left to go back to the drawing board, although they are

sitting down with at least four quality candidates this week who have shown interest in the job, including one from left field. Rye FC announced last week that Jewell had been appointed chairman of selectors to support coach and friend Josh Moore. In other breaking news over the weekend, Red Hill will start the interview process to replace triple premiership coach Tony Blackford. Blackford told the club midway through the year of his intentions to stand down at season’s end.

Red Hill president Roger Siverson confirmed that interviews had been lined up this week for likely candidates. Crib Point is looking for a coach too after Brad Arnold announced his resignation at the club’s vote count night. In Peninsula Division, outside of Karingal, Langwarrin is interviewing for its top job, although it is understood Brad Dredge still has a year to serve on his contract, while Mornington will announce its new coach on Tuesday or Wednesday this week.

Finals fever grips Langwarrin, Southern SOCCER

By Craig MacKenzie LANGWARRIN and Southern United switch into finals mode this week in preparation for Saturday’s crunch ties against Altona Magic and Calder United respectively. State 1 South-East champion Langwarrin finished its league campaign last weekend with a 3-2 loss away to Malvern City while Southern’s table-topping under-13s won 3-0 away to Bayside United. Langy squares off with State 1 North-West champion Altona Magic at JL Murphy Reserve, Port Melbourne, on Saturday afternoon for the right to claim the mantle of Victoria’s State 1 champion. Gus Macleod’s side goes into the clash without veteran striker Caleb Nicholes, first-choice keeper Robbie Acs, central midfield giant Mat “Yaya” Luak and classy central defender Kieron Kenny. Nicholes has retired after scoring against Malvern City in his final appearance, Acs is heading to Fiji for a family holiday, Luak is suspended and Kenny is injured. The Foster brothers are expected to come into the starting line-up with James in goal and Lewis in midfield. “We want to do well here even though it’s been a long season and we have achieved our main goal of winning the league,” said assistant coach Robert Mathieson. “To win this final would be the icing on the cake for both our players and supporters.” Southern hosts second-placed Calder United at Monterey Reserve on Saturday morning with the winner going directly into the Sunday 1 October Grand Final. Saturday’s loser faces a cut-throat preliminary final against the winner of the elimination final between Bayside and South Melbourne which finished third and fourth respectively. Southern has a full squad and expectations of success are high given that the side finished seven points clear of Calder and ace striker Rhys McKenna won the league’s Golden Boot award while fellow striker Candy Kilderry finished fourth. Southern coach Debbie Nichols is overseas and will miss the next few weeks but her assistant Emma Bracken will take charge of the finals campaign assisted by under-15s coach Aaron Myatt. Star Southern central defender Taylah Hennekam opened the scoring against Bayside last Saturday with an 18th minute free kick from 25 metres that gave Bayside keeper Ruby Dale no chance. Nine minutes into the second half classy Southern midfielder Ales-

Brilliant Beddows: Southern United left back Jess Beddows was in fine form last Saturday. Picture: John Punshon sandra Davis sent Talia Palmer clear down the left and Palmer surged into the penalty area before being bundled over. Referee Daniel Harvey immediately pointed to the spot and McKenna had no trouble converting. The goalscoring machine was at it again two minutes later running onto a pinpoint through ball from captain Sage Kirby and deftly angling the ball past advancing Dale for goal number 28 of a remarkable season. Southern’s under-15s lost 4-0 in the later match at Kingston Heath Soccer Complex while the under18s lost 3-0. The seniors celebrated their fourth straight win by beating Bayside 1-0 with Courtney Heuston striking the decisive blow from close range in the 38th minute. A match highlight was the performance of Southern’s defence. Goalkeeper Tina Fonua was well supported by right back Milla Jowett and central defensive pairing 12 September 2017

Lisa Fonua and Mikhaila Bowden while left back Jess Beddows turned in an outstanding display. Mornington ended its State 1 South-East league campaign with a 1-0 away win against nemesis Morwell Pegasus on Saturday which meant Adam Jamieson’s men finished second a point behind Langy. Keegan Ziada’s first goal for the club came in the first half and followed good lead-up play by Ryan Paczkowski and Sammy Orritt. Peninsula Strikers couldn’t escape the drop from State 2 South-East last weekend, going down 6-3 away to Mazenod United despite leading 3-1 after 31 minutes. Sam Scott (2) and Josh Vega scored for Strikers while Anthony Hammer (2), Nick D’Angelo, Jayson Gucciardo, Vicente Vasquez and Adrian D’Ortenzio scored for Mazenod. Three points wouldn’t have saved Strikers as Doncaster Rovers surprised home team Berwick City by winning 3-2.

Bottom side Seaford United already had its fate sealed and finished a disappointing season with a 5-1 away loss to Beaumaris on Saturday. Two days earlier Frankston Pines finished their league campaign with a 0-0 draw against North Caulfield at Knox Regional Centre cementing their State 2 status. Skye United fell at the final hurdle losing its State 3 South-East promotion showdown 2-0 at home to Brandon Park in front of a bumper crowd on Saturday. Skye keeper Jonathan Crook was more active than his Brandon Park counterpart Josh Green in the early exchanges but Green was forced to parry a Jason Nowakowksi strike in the 14th minute following a superb cross from the left by Skye’s English import Jacob Scotte-Hatherly. In the 34th minute Hamlet Armenian set up Matty Durand on the left of the area but the rangy Brandon Park striker blasted his left foot shot well over. Five minutes later Green pulled off the save of the match racing off his line to smother Daniel Attard’s attempt after the Skye striker had been played in by Mark O’Connor. Armenian got free down the left in the 41st minute and his cross was met by a spectacular diving header from Maxim Avram which flashed just wide of the upright. A pivotal moment in this contest came just before half-time when a jinking run by Wumjock Jock ended with a neat pass to Attard who controlled the ball with his first touch then hammered it past Green into the back of the net only to be ruled offside. A photograph taken from the Football Chaos video of the match highlights the controversial nature of the decision. A Scotte-Hatherly cross from the right in the 56th minute was headed straight at Green by Marcus Collier and a minute later Collier volleyed over from inside the area. An Attard header put Nowakowski into a one-on-one with Green in the 64th minute but a poor finish allowed the Brandon Park keeper to dive down and gather. The deadlock was broken three minutes later when Crook couldn’t make contact with a corner to the back post and Kegham Aminian struck the ball in from point-blank range. It was game over in the 79th minute when an Armenian cross from the left was met by a teammate whose first time shot struck the upright and rebounded to substitute Daniel Eksiyan who tucked it away to complete the scoreline. A feature of the contest was the impressive performance of veteran

Brandon Park left back Vinnie Bontemps who was rarely challenged and was allowed to dictate terms throughout. Baxter farewelled senior coach Roy Kilner with a 2-1 home win over Endeavour United in their State 4 South clash on Saturday. The visitors went ahead after nine minutes when Sasho Ancevski converted from the penalty spot but Mark Pagliarulo equalised in style in the 35th minute. The Scottish striker beat two opponents before unleashing a longrange strike that went in off the underside of the bar. Big Dan Disseldorp scored the sealer before the break and Baxter ran out a deserved winner. Rosebud Heart could not fashion a similar send-off for coach Scott Morrison and was thumped 7-0 by Monash Uni at Truemans Road Reserve last weekend. Heart was forced to make four changes to an already depleted line-up and the more experienced Monash side led 1-0 at the interval and took charge in the second half. “It’s been a long tough season with everything that could go wrong for us going wrong,” said Morrison. “We had injury after injury but I can’t fault the boys at all because they matched it with pretty much everyone and were always going to be safe from relegation.” Somerville Eagles signed off on their inaugural State 5 South season with a 1-0 loss to Lyndale United at Somerville Secondary College on Saturday. Somerville’s Eric Manahong was red carded midway through the second half and James Iasanc notched the winner in the 80th minute. “I’m really proud of the club to have started from scratch and to have fielded three senior men’s sides, a women’s side and three junior sides,” said senior coach Zach Peddersen. “We have a great platform on which to build next season and we’ll be looking to bring in the right coaches and players to take us forward.” Peddersen will return to his role as technical director while assistant coach Paul Morgan is stepping down so the club is on the lookout for a senior coach for 2018.

Riders gear up to climb Arthurs Seat By Ben Triandafillou THE Mornington Peninsula is set to come alive with hundreds of mountain bikers this October when the 2017 Red Hill Gravity Enduro takes to the trails of Arthurs Seat. The Red Hill Gravity Enduro presented by Mercedes-Benz Mornington will be held on October 7-8 at Hillview Community Reserve, Boundary Rd Dromana. The two-day event sold out of entries within weeks, with numbers increasing from 190 to 250 participants in just its second year. Red Hill Riders Mountain Bike Club president Terence Toh credits the rise of the Gravity Enduro discipline internationally to the event’s popularity. “The Red Hill Gravity Enduro is a truly unique event on the Australian calendar,” Toh said. “The format is physically challenging for competitors who will climb to the summit of Arthurs Seat unassisted by shuttles, before racing downhill through various timed special stages of the course.” “With Australia’s Sam Hill ranked no. 1 in the elite men’s Enduro World Series, the gravity discipline at home is really starting to take off.” Over 66 junior competitors in the under-15, under-17 and under-19 age categories have registered,

showcasing the growth of young talent in the sport. The under-17 Mountain Bike Australia Gravity Enduro National Series winner Jack Hewish will compete on the peninsula but is set to be challenged by Mt Martha’s Louis Tancredi who took out the under-17 event last year. “He was in my race last year where I was able to beat him so hopefully I can do it again,” Tancredi said. “I’ve improved a bit but he’s probably improved more as he was able to win the national series.” The Padua College student usually competes in downhill events but rides in the Red Hill enduro event to improve his fitness and take to his local track. Tancredi began riding about four years ago, joining his older brother Nick Tancredi at the Red Hill Riders Mountain Bike Club, and has noticed a major growth in junior participation. “The number of juniors at the club has grown so much,” he said. “Ever since the park opened up the number has probably quadrupled.” “You didn’t really see too many younger kids at the start but when the park opened up to the public about two years ago, more and more people have joined because they’ve heard about the great tracks.” The club is expecting an estimated 500 people to travel to the region for the weekend of the Red Hill Gravity Enduro.

Midweek tennis starts up for junior talent THE Peninsula Tennis Leagues will soon provide junior tennis players with an alternative midweek competition as it gets set to start in the first week of Term 4. The Peninsula Tennis Leagues, which had a sign-up day last Saturday, hopes to create a supplement competition from the usual Saturday morning league. Hosted by Better Tennis at the Frankston Tennis Club, the 13 league divisions will be spread across weeknights from Monday to Thursday starting at 4.30pm. Better Tennis coach, Steve Foot, said the Peninsula Tennis Leagues aren’t aiming to take over the Saturday competition but rather create another night for keen tennis players to play matches. “It’s an extra competition for the juniors who can’t play Saturday morning competition due to

other commitments as well as for the players who just want to play extra matches during the week,” he said. The leagues will range from the standard of Les Moss, Loretta Thrupp and section one through to a green ball competition for the younger juniors. Unlike Saturday morning competition, the Peninsula Tennis Leagues is individually based rather than team based. Each junior player will get to play a doubles match, with a new partner each week, and a singles match, played against their doubles partner of that week. The competition is open to tennis players 21 and under. If you’re interested or would like extra information email info@bettertennis.com.au or call Brad Grose on 0410 483 669.

Mt Eliza flood footy grand finals THE Frankston District Junior Football League grand finals were flooded with red and blue on Sunday 3 September as Mt Eliza prepared 10 teams for the premierships. Mt Eliza Football Club president Fraser Bayne said that even though the club focuses on enjoyment, participation and development, it was a fantastic achievement to have 10 teams through to the FDJFL grand finals as well as an under-17s team through to the South East Juniors grand final. “It’s been a good year for the club,” Bayne said. “It’s a great result and we did really well to have an initial 16 teams through to the finals. “We were also able to have two Mt Eliza girls’ teams playing each other in the under-15s grand final as well as a girls’ team in the under-18s grand final. “It really shows the growth the club has had in women’s football.” FDJFL grand final winners were:

Rye Girls take out the final in style Story & picture Barry Irving On Saturday September 9, a bitterly cold and wet morning, the young ‘D’ Grade team from Rye prevailed over the Frankston team to take out the netball final, their first ‘D’ Grade premiership. The game was a feast for netball fans, played fast and furious in very difficult conditions. The Rye girls came out strong scoring four goals before Frankston got on the board. Frankston came back hard and narrowly won the first quarter. In the second quarter Rye won back the lead and left Frankston playing catch up for the rest of the game with the score line never out by more than seven goals at any time. The Rye girls met every challenge from Frankston and matched them goal for goal never letting them get back into a lead. Miranda Stewart from Rye took out the best on court with a very strong game for the Demons. The Rye girls wish to send a massive thank you all their supporters who braved the weather and cheered the girls on to their first premiership. The final score was Rye 35 to Frankston 29.

Winning ways: (l to r) Front row: Miranda Stewart, Emily Harris, Jade Larsen. Back Row: Jenny Walker (Coach), Jodie Stephens, Tuscani Closter, Ebony Hill, Jasmyn Greenfield, Katelyn Hearn, Shannon Christodoulou, Mardi Dawson, Tamara Locke(Captain)

Junior finals fast and furious

THERE was action aplenty at Mornington Peninsula Junior Football League grand finals at Hastings, Sunday 3 September – but not before some early dramas. League president Andrew Souter said wet weather after the first week made the main ground at Hastings a “bit heavy”. “Mornington Peninsula Shire staff worked hard to get the ground in great condition for grand final day,” he said. Most of the games were close “which made for an exciting finals’ series”. “The under-17s match between Beleura and Balnarring was a fitting end to the finals series for 2017,” Mr Souter said. “This was an outstanding game by both sides and came down to the dying minutes with Balnarring holding on to take the under-17 premiership cup.” Mr Souter said initially there had been a “lot of resistance” to the girls’ finals being held at Mt Martha on Saturday nights. “The plan was to showcase girls’ football on the Mornington Peninsula and I believe it did just that,” he said. “We were amazed by the attendance and support the games received in the last four weeks.” Grand final winners: Under-11s: White–Tyabb; Navy–Mt Martha. Under-12s: White–South Mornington; Navy– South Mornington. Under-13s: White–Balnarring; Navy–Rye. Under-14s: Somerville. Under-15s: Sorrento. Under-16s: Mt Martha. Under-17s: Balnarring. Junior girls: Rye. Intermediate girls: Pearcedale/Baxter. Youth girls: Beleura
