5973 6424 or email: team@mpnews.com.au www.mpnews.com.au Record dive: Scuba divers form a human chain to set a new record at Rye last week. Pictures: Supplied

Diving deep for the record SCUBA divers have taken the plunge near Rye pier to set a record for the longest chain of divers in one session. Despite overcast conditions and a stiff southerly wind on Saturday 2 December, the 360 divers formed an underwater human chain for 15 minutes to win a place in the Guinness Book of World Records. They were also keen to promote scuba diving among marine life and wrecks at the southern end of Port Phillip. “It was a great day,” dive boat operator Luke English said. “We only had to be underwater for one minute, but we stayed down longer to get photographs to prove our attempt.” He said organisers were comfortable in sneaking past the previous record of 308 divers and happy to allow other venues a realistic chance of breaking the Rye record in future attempts. “Now we hear of record attempts being planned in Sydney and Adelaide and even Japan – it’s going viral.” Divers toasted their success over drinks at the Rye hotel afterwards.

Shire boss on Fox ‘party’ cruise Keith Platt keith@mpnews.com.au MORNINGTON Peninsula Shire CEO Carl Cowie was among the high profile guests aboard a luxury liner cruising the Mediterranean for a so-called “conception party” of prominent businessman, Lindsay Fox, a year-and-a-half after accepting council's top job. The cruise was made in July 2016, an appropriate time before Mr Fox’s 80th birthday was celebrated in April this year with far fewer guests at Montalto Vineyard and Olive Grove at Red Hill South. The boundary of Mr Fox’s sprawling Portsea property was contentiously extended across the beach by the Titles Office on Christmas Eve 2013 after a

build-up of sand increased the distance to the acknowledged high tide level. The mayor Cr Bryan Payne last week said Mr Cowie took annual leave and paid his own airfare to Europe. “Carl Cowie was a guest on the trip organised by Mr Fox last July. He was on annual leave and paid his own airfare to and from Europe. The shire incurred no costs as a result of this trip.” Council on Friday did not respond to questions from The News about any declaration about the trip made by Mr Cowie on the shire’s gifts register. The shire’s Gifts, Benefits and Hospitality policy – an “internal” document “owned” by the CEO - states: “Gifts, benefits and hospitality received must not create a real or perceived sense of obligation that may lead to a perception of preference or conflict.”

The policy also states: “Councillors and council staff are to ensure that attendance at private functions does not have potential implications for council’s reputation or image or may cause an actual or perceived conflict of interest.” The News does not suggest any wrongdoing by Mr Cowie. When first contacted about Mr Cowie’s trip, Cr Payne said the Fox cruise happened before he was a councillor (he was elected in October 2016) “but I did know about it”. “I agree it could look like a conflict of interest if it didn’t have council approval,” Cr Payne said. “I’m surprised you guys didn’t pick it up sooner.” The Gifts, Benefits and Hospitality policy is not publicly available on the shire’s website. The official council response provid-

ed to The News on Friday stated: “The Gifts policy is an internal corporate policy. Such policies are not placed on council’s website. “The register has been audited on an annual basis. There is no legal requirement to make this available externally subject to Freedom of Information requests.” Neighbouring Frankston Council's Staff Gifts and Hospitality Policy register is available for public inspection. As reported widely at the time, Mr Fox – generally regarded as one of the peninsula’s most high profile property owners – chartered the Seabourn Odyssey for a seven-day trip between Athens and Venice for his "conception cruise". The ship costs about $200,000 a day to charter and is capable of carrying

more than 450 passengers. Mr Fox’s guests included actor Hugh Jackman, TV personality and Collingwood Football Club president Eddie McGuire, retail billionaire Solomon Lew and his Premier Investments CEO Mark McInnes, mining magnates Gina Rinehart and Andrew Forrest, former Crown Casino boss and horse breeder Lloyd Williams, the Pratt family and politicians Bill Kelty and Jeff Kennett. Several of the cruise guests own property on the peninsula. Mr Cowie has just returned to work after a council-sanctioned trip which included seminars and conferences in Sweden, Germany and Malta. This latest overseas trip was paid for from his $30,000 study tour allowance on top of his near $400,000 salary package.

Wet, wild setting for Adani protest “PEOPLE power” came to Rye beach Sunday 3 December on a weekend where heavy rain caused events to be cancelled and residents to stay indoors. But the unusual cold winds and driving rain couldn’t stop more than 50 people of all ages, backgrounds and political persuasions gathering to protest the proposed Adani coal mine in central Queensland. The protest was organised by the Southern Peninsula Friends of the Planet, formed when three Rye women talking over coffee decided to test local support for a national stop Adani campaign. The original protest of about 30 people (“Friends turning up heat on coal plan”, The News 28/11/2017) kicked off both the group and a desire for further action, orgainser Gillian Adam said. Rye resident Kerri McCafferty said she had never spoken publicly before but “felt compelled” to “after learning about Adani and the impact this mine could have on Australia’s environment and the future of the Great Barrier Reef”. Ms McCafferty has a three-yearold daughter and, like others at the protest, worries about her daughter’s future and Australia’s future generations. Although her speech was cut short by rain and wind its essence was aimed at addressing the mine’s impact on groundwater, its effect on the Great Barrier Reef “with 500 extra coal ships travelling through this World Heritage area each year” and the carbon emissions produced

Weekly recycling MORNINGTON Peninsula Shire will collect household recycling bins weekly from Monday 18 December until Friday 2 February. The change from the usual fortnightly recycling service aims to help residents better dispose of their waste over summer. The 240-litre recycling bin with the blue lid will be collected weekly on the usual day. Recyclable items include aluminium and steel cans and foil, rigid and solid plastic items, such as toys, kitchen ware, cups and drink bottles, pots and pans, wrapping paper and envelopes, cardboard, newspapers and magazines, milk, juice and soft drink bottles, glass bottles and jars. Recycling tips: Don’t place items in a plastic bag and empty containers of contents/liquids. Recyclables that can’t fit into a bin can be taken to rubbish tips at Rye, Mornington and Tyabb, or hoppers at Sorrento, Dromana and Flinders for free. To view bin dates visit mornpen. vic.gov.au/My-Neighbourhood

when the coal is exported to India to be burnt in “old, inefficient coal fired powered plants”. Ms McCafferty said the group had seen the effect of “people power” in the national Stop Adani # campaign influencing Queensland Premier Ana-

stasia Palaszczuk in her veto of using public funds to support this project. Although the group plans more campaigns, Ms Adam said in the immediate future it will be encouraging new members and associated groups to “continue the fight”.

They are asked to contact local, state and federal members of parliament, to talk with friends and colleagues about how they can contribute to a cleaner safer future by acting to stop Adani.

ABOUT 6080 cubic metres of domestic green waste - enough to fill three Olympic sized swimming pools - was dumped at the Mornington Peninsula Shire’s resource recovery centres during the no charge green waste weekend in late October. “We are glad that 4855 residents took part in cleaning their gardens and properties in preparation for summer,” the mayor Cr Bryan Payne said. Green waste collected over the weekend was chipped and processed into mulch.

Partnership to restore hotel Stephen Taylor steve@mpnews.com.au THE owner of the Continental hotel in Sorrento, Julian Gerner, has entered into a joint venture partnership with property developer, Steller. Under the terms of the deal Steller will refurbish and renovate the 1875 icon and then lease it back to Mr Gerner to run as a going concern. The announcement is likely to calm critics worried it might fall further into disrepair after lying idle since Mr Gerner took over from long-term owners the Di Pietro family in mid-2016 for a reported $13 million. Two years of inactivity at the gateway to the main street is “not a good look”, Sorrento-Portsea Chamber of Commerce vice-president Marc Clavin said. The National Trust-listed Ocean Beach Rd hotel built in 1875 by the “Father of Sorrento”, comedian, actor, entrepreneur and politician George Coppin, is believed to be the largest limestone building in the Southern Hemisphere. Since taking over Mr Gerner has won contentious planning approvals for extensive redevelopments behind the old pub, even getting the go-ahead to buy a rear car park for $1.98 million – a windfall which he described recently as the “missing link” in the hotel’s viable future. He now has a piece of the action in the $22 million redevelopment that will feature a public bar and bistro, restaurant, dining room and cham-

End of year THE Red Cross Sorrento/Portsea/ Rye Unit final meeting for the year starts at 11am at the Rye on Thursday 14 December.

pagne bar, two function rooms, 38 hotel rooms, cafe, gymnasium, day spa, 25-metre lap pool, deck, spa, sauna and steam room, car park and 16 apartments. Steller managing director Nicholas Smedley said “building works will complement and enhance the existing heritage and provide a landmark tourist destination for the Mornington Peninsula”.

“Sorrento has grown significantly over the past decade and continues to evolve with year-round population and tourism,” he said. “Steller has had a close eye on the historic hotel since Julian announced plans for restoration.” Mr Gerner said the “magnificent limestone building [is] deserving of restoration and preservation”. “I am very proud to be the new cus-

todian of the Continental hotel and to breathe life back into a Sorrento landmark,” he said. Work will start early next year with a completion date set for early in 2019. Mr Gerner took over the Beach Shack in 2013 and, since then, has opened the Norfolk Pines Wine Bar and Morgan’s Fish & Chipper. He lives in Sorrento with his wife and young family.

RAY White Real Estate will continue its tradition of giving with the return of ‘A Little Ray Of Giving’ for Christmas. Ray White Mornington will partner with Rotary and the Mornington Information Centre to help disadvantaged children who need “a little extra light” over the festive season. “This gift drive is a really simple way to help put a smile on the face of children and families who may need some extra cheer at this time of year”, Ray White Mornington director Wendy Gillies said. “All you need to do is wrap your present and drop it under the tree at your closest Ray White office and please mark, or let us know in person, if the gift is for a boy or a girl.” Ray White Mornington, Shop 5, 117-133 Main St, will have a giving tree in its front window where gifts can be left. Other Ray White offices are at Rosebud and Rye.

Drowning ‘almost certain’ in summer Stephen Taylor steve@mpnews.com.au SOMEONE is almost certain to drown on the Mornington Peninsula this summer. Coupled with this, there’s an 88 per cent likelihood of one or more peninsula residents drowning in any one year. On the peninsula, males are 6.3 times more likely to drown than females. This is the alarming scenario painted by the Life Saving Victoria Drowning Report 2016-17 which shows a “99 per cent likelihood of one or more drownings occurring on the Mornington Peninsula in any given year”. There were six drownings on the peninsula in the past year. The report says that in the decade to 2016, 44 people drowned on the peninsula with 58 residents being hospitalised after non-fatal incidents involving water. In that same time, 21 peninsula residents drowned elsewhere in Victoria while 84 others were taken to emergency departments. The report shows that 45 people (78 per cent male) drowned in Victoria in the 2016-17 financial year – up 20 per cent on the 10-year average. In the same timeframe the report also reveals a six per cent rise in drownings for children aged up to four; a 25 per cent rise for those aged 15-24;

an 18 per cent rise for 25-44 year olds; and a 45 per cent rise for those aged 65 and over. While children face the greatest risk of drowning, adults aged 65-plus had the highest age-specific rate of drownings in 2016-17. Males are four times more likely to drown than females. There was a 25 per cent rise in drownings for those aged 15-24, an 18 per cent rise in the drownings for those aged 25-44 and a 45 per cent rise for those aged 65 years and over. Most drownings last year occurred while people were swimming, paddling or wading (29 per cent), walking or playing near water (18 per cent) or using pools or spas (11 per cent). This year six people who drowned in Victoria had foreign backgrounds (13 per cent) down 15 per cent on the 10-year average. These figures may be even higher, as in the study period country of birth or ethnicity was unknown in 68 per cent of drownings. Slipping or falling into water accounted for 40 per cent of drownings last year, up 46 per cent over the past decade, with an average of 12 deaths a year from 2006-16. Alcohol is a common factor in drowning, representing 22 per cent of yearly tolls over the past decade (an average of nine deaths a year). As in previous years, nine people died in 2016-17 when they drank alcohol before swimming, representing 20 per cent of total drownings.

Sailors saved with ship-to-shore call A STRONG south-easterly wind was the last thing two Hobie cat sailors needed after losing their mast about two kilometres off Mornington last week. Their craft was rapidly heading out to sea when Volunteer Marine Rescue crews received an emergency call from the Water Police. They were quickly on the scene to help, 11.40am, Monday 4 December. VMR crewman Bob Chase: “We were alongside the stricken yacht within 30 minutes of the

call. The two occupants in their mid-late 30s were glad to see us. They did all the right things. They were wearing lifejackets and had a mobile phone in a waterproof pouch.” VMR vessel AK1 towed the stricken cat back to Fishermans beach. VRM president Tim Warner said anyone in trouble on the water to call 000 or the VMR number 0419 233 999.

‘Smart’ ways to ease shark threat BEACHGOERS are being urged to be “sharksmart” over summer. Victorian Fisheries Authority CEO Travis Dowling said sharks were a natural part of a healthy marine environment and, while the risk of an attack is low, there are ways to reduce the odds. “When swimming, surfing, diving or fishing, people are in the shark’s natural environment and so should be mindful and make good choices,” Mr Dowling said. He said people should not swim, dive or surf alone and be alert to the latest sightings at emergency.vic.gov.au Bathers should stay between the red and yellow flags on lifesaver-patrolled beaches and avoid areas that attract sharks, such as seal haunts or areas where fishing, human and animal waste enters the water.

Mr Dowling said beachgoers should watch for signs of unusual behaviour in wildlife or fish, which can indicate that a shark is in the area. Reports of sharks seen close can be made to police on 000, or notifying lifesavers. “That information is relayed to the VicEmergency website and smart phone app so it can be shared quickly with beachgoers,” he said. “If the beach is patrolled, lifesavers will alert swimmers and possibly close the beach altogether if that’s appropriate.” Mr Dowling said it had been 30 years since there had been a fatal shark attack in Victoria. “While there is no evidence that shark numbers are increasing, our human population is growing each year and more people are using the coastline to relax and recreate.” Details: vfa.vic.gov.au/shark-smart

Swags bring security and health Stephen Taylor steve@mpnews.com.au CAROL O’Brien has raised enough money to buy 12 swags for those “sleeping rough” on the southern peninsula. The swags sell for about $100 each and make sleeping safer and more comfortable. Ms O’Brien belongs to the Wednesday Night Rosebud Community Group that meets at the New Peninsula Baptist Church. There, low income people with life struggles can come for a meal, learn how to support one another and make a difference within their community. Rosebud Community Group team leader Mark Matthews said Ms O’Brien has “not had the easiest of journeys with housing over the past 10 years and has experienced homelessness herself”. She has lived in rooming houses, which have proven to be unsafe, particularly for women. She now lives in a small caravan in a Rosebud caravan park. She can’t afford to pay market rates for private rental and so obtaining a higher standard of housing is not an easy option. She is on the waiting list for public housing. But her own plight has not stopped Ms O’Brien from being a strong advocate for those experiencing homelessness in the Rosebud Community Group, and the wider Rosebud community. Mr Matthews said her struggles with housing had motivated a “deep empathy” for those who are sleeping rough. “She is an amazing example of how anyone with a vision and passion for social justice can impact those less fortunate than themselves,” he said. “She demonstrates that you don’t need to have wealth to make a powerful and positive

difference in your local community.” Ms O’Brien started raising money three months ago by selling cards at Wednesday Night Community Group meetings where part of the proceeds going charity and “tin rattling”. “Homeless people lose their dignity because they usually wear the same clothes and rarely have use of a shower and laundry which also identifies them as homeless,” Ms O’Brien said. “They carry their belongings in a trolley or bag and blanket. They cannot hide the fact that they are homeless. They suffer from chest infections, hypothermia, frost bite, trench foot, skin infections and mental health issues, which affects homeless people even more so because of their living rough. “Society discriminates, shuns and can also physically and verbally abuse them. They lose trust in people which encourages more isolation impacting upon their mental health.” Mr Matthew’s said Ms O’Brien’s goal had been to raise enough money to buy two swags by the end of this year. “Through her dedication and persistence she has raised enough to buy 12 swags,” he said. “For a homeless person, receiving a backpack swag will provide a sense of dignity, self-esteem, renewed hope and, hopefully, the understanding that someone cares about them. “The backpack also provides security for better sleeping and it can improve a person’s health by providing protection from the elements.” Australian Bureau of Statistics show that, on any given night, more than 100,000 people sleep rough or in inadequate housing. Rosebud is not quarantined from this struggle.

NO neighbourhoods in Melbourne or Victoria’s regional cities are affordable for a single person on Centrelink, single pensioner, or single parent on a low part-time income, Council to Homeless Persons CEO Jenny Smith says. The latest Rental Affordability Index shows households with incomes of $50,000 a year and looking for a two-bedroom rental must move out at least 115 kilometres to escape “unaffordable” rent. This is defined as paying more than 30 per cent of income on rent. Frankston and the Mornington Peninsula are seen as being “extremely” or “severely” unaffordable for single pensioners who would be forced to pay 65 per cent of their income to rent a one-bedroom flat in Frankston or 45 per cent on the peninsula. Low-income earners paying more than 30 per cent of their income on rent are regarded as being in rent stress – a confronting issue on the peninsula which has the second highest rate of elderly residents in the state. The situation has prompted the Council to Homeless Persons to call for 14,500 new social housing properties state-wide, with “at least 1800 in the Frankston and Mornington Peninsula in order to house the families currently on the waiting list”, Ms Smith said. In Frankston, a single part-time worker on parent benefits looking to rent a two-bedroom house would be paying 45 per cent of their income (se-

verely unaffordable); a $70,000 a year household would be paying 38-60 per cent of its income; and a single person on Newstart would be paying 69 per cent of their income for a one-bedroom flat. On the peninsula, a pensioner couple would be paying 36 per cent of their income for a one-bedroom dwelling, and a single person on Newstart would be paying 69 per cent for the same dwelling. “This is a problem that needs both state and federal governments to pull together to fully resolve – and the federal government is currently asleep at the housing affordability wheel,” Ms Smith said. “In their next budget we are calling on the Victorian government to step in and accelerate its social housing program. “Private rental is now out of reach of low income residents and more and more are living on the precipice. They are spending so much on housing that they cannot afford other essentials, including food and medication. “The good news is that the state government can afford [to pay more for public housing] with tax revenue from stamp duty nearly doubling over the past five years to $6.2 billion a year.” Ms Smith said “windfall gains” to the budget from “skyrocketing house prices” should be used to lessen pain caused by the “housing crisis”. She said a “dark flipside” to economic growth was fierce competition for rental properties with those able to afford them “crowding out those left behind with homelessness as a consequence”.

Sounds, a good way to spot frogs TYABB Railway Station Primary School pupils visited Devilbend Reservoir at Moorooduc last week using an app which identifies and records different species of frogs. The app allowed the four young researchers to hear the frogs and identify their type, location and numbers, rather than physically having to flush them out and handle them, which could be stressful to the amphibians.

pupils detected four or five frog species. He said the school had been keen to link the pupils with Mornington Peninsula environment groups and found the Devilbend Foundation members “very approachable”. “They put forward some good initiatives and we look forward to working with them next year.” Parks ranger Sam Pollard said staff enjoyed working with the children, and helping them understand that

working on environmental projects can be fun. “We like teaching pupils about the environment and what out there and not to be afraid of the bush.” Next year there are plans for school projects on planting, weeding and water monitoring and helping out on Clean Up Australia Day. Information collated is sent to Melbourne Water to be used as a guide on the coming Devilbend website.

Club’s new lease of life Stephen Taylor steve@mpnews.com.au AFTER a long battle Devilbend Golf Club has signed a 21-year lease with the Mornington Peninsula Shire, starting with a yearly rent of $10,233. The rent will increase three per cent annually. The new lease ends a bid by the shire to advertise the course is available for lease, as well as appointing a commercial manager (“Golf club leads scorecard in bid for lease”, The News, 11/7/2017). In April, the shire’s property operations team leader Greg Collins said granting the club a third 21-year lease over the Crown land “would limit council control over the property to the terms and conditions of the lease”. However, his report was dropped without explanation from the agenda (“Golf club in the rough over lease”, The News, 25/4/17). The volunteer-run club’s president Brad Johnston said that it had been a “tough fight to overturn [the] recommendation to put the course out to tender to find a commercial operator earlier in the year”. He said the club’s 450 members “were to be congratulated on their coordinated lobbying campaign which provided the councillors with enough information to enable them to make

an informed decision on who was best placed to manage the lease”. The club, in Loders Rd, Moorooduc, was established in 1974. Mr Johnson said the work of volunteers in the 42 years since in improving the course and its facilities “with little or no council assistance” was a compelling argument in its push to run the course. He thanked councillors who voted unanimously to give the club the lease. In particular he praised the efforts of Cr Kate Roper for her “unwavering support for the club and its volunteers throughout their campaign”. Mr Johnson said the club could now “plan for an exciting future with several proposals for improving the course in the pipeline”. “This course is in magnificent condition and is teeming with wildlife,” he said. “It is an absolute pleasure to play in this great environment.” The not-for-profit club employs six full time and seven part time staff. An audited financial report supplied by the club for the year ending 30 June 2016 shows a net operating profit of $71,642 from an annual turnover of $1.36 million. In the 10 years to 2016 the club spent $760,000 on course improvements (not including of staff/volunteer labour); $41,900 on maintenance; and $594,000 to buy machinery.

Paddlers are in at Devilbend KAYAKERS and canoeists can now legally use Devilbend Natural Features Reserve, Tuerong, near Moorooduc. Parks Victoria has introduced rules allowing paddlers on a 47-hectare section of the former reservoir. Powered craft are prohibited. An exclusion zone has been set aside to provide habitat for wildlife. Earlier this year, Parks sought public comment on allowing non-powered boats on the water following research

on their impacts on blue-billed ducks and other waterbirds by the Arthur Rylah Institute for Environmental Research. Most of the 96 submissions supported the boating plan. “Experiencing the park from a canoe or kayak offers a different perspective and greater connection with the beauty of the park, enhance fishing opportunities and another way to exercise or get active in the park,” Parks Victoria area chief ranger Georgia

Kerr said. The reserve’s 44 species of birds includes eight which are listed as threatened. Since being opened to the public the reserve has become a popular fishing spot for estuary perch and trout which are regularly re-stocked by the Victorian Fisheries Authority. All-abilities visitors will be able to take their vehicles to the water’s edge with a permit from Parks Victoria. Details: call 13 19 63 or visit parks. vic.gov.au

Habitat protection scores ‘fish friendly’ award for marina Keith Platt keith@mpnews.com.au THE Blairgowrie marina is now able to add “fish friendly” to its description. Although “friendly” may not be the description used by a fish hooked within the marina, it is a title bestowed on the Blairgowrie Yacht Squadron-owned marina for “protection and enhancement of marine habitat”. Blairgowrie is the first Victorian marina to get the Marina Industries Association accreditation and the 33rd in the Asia Pacific region. This latest recognition follows Blairgowrie being recognised as an international clean marina in late 2016. At Blairgowrie attention has been given to the monitoring and recording of marine species. “Melbourne University marine biology students regularly visit the marina to check field plates deployed on the marina arm. Divers also regularly check for any signs of marina pest in the waters around the marina,” general manager Ross Kilborn said. “The recent replacement of some nearby moorings with seagrass-friendly installations has also resulted in better seagrass coverage around and in the marina.” Mr Kilborn said the award was “important recognition” of the yacht squadron’s commitment to “enhancing the very rich marine environment of southern Port Phillip”. Yacht squadron commodore Al Singh said the southern end of the bay had one of the “richest marine environments on the Victorian coast”. “[The marina] is a recognised dive site by the Victorian diving community and we are very pleased to receive this recognition of the enhancement our marina has achieved,” he said. The Marina Industry Association says it “developed” the Fish Friendly Marinas award “to inform marina managers on how to maximise the benefits for fish and recognise those operators actively working to improve fish habitat”.

Keeping track of pets and their past RSPCA Victoria wants owners of puppies and kittens to know where their pet was bred. The association’s CEO Dr Liz Walker was “delighted” to see the state government put traceability “front and centre” in the Domestic Animals Act requiring source numbers to be stored on a publicly searchable Pet Exchange Register. “Right now, we can’t account for where up to 70 per cent of the puppies born in Victoria every year have been bred - that’s around 60,000 puppies a year,” Dr Walker said. “If we don’t know where a kitten or pup was bred, we can’t possibly know what conditions they or their mum have been living in – it might be perfect, or it could be horrifically cruel.” Dr Walker said that the source numbers would be required on all advertisements offering kittens and puppies for sale in Victoria, including those being traded or given away. From 2019 potential pet owners will be able to use a Pet Exchange Register website to check whether the source number is valid, and that the breeder’s contact details and location line up with those on the advertisement. “From 2019, it’ll be no source number, no sale. It’s that simple,” Dr Walker said.

VOLUNTEERS from 3941RYE Beach Patrol have been cleaning Rye front beach every first Saturday of the month since February 2015. Member Julie Jame said in that time they had collected 5276 bottles among 2722 kilograms of rubbish. In Saturday 2 December’s rain and wind, five members picked up 22 kilograms of rubbish in an hour. Their haul included 20 bottles, eight kilograms of rubbish and many confectionery wrappers. The group’s next beach clean is 2pm, Saturday 6 January, for an hour. Those attending are asked to meet in the carpark next to the Rye Yacht Club. New members and visitors are welcome.

Carjacking charge A LAKES Entrance man has been charged following an alleged aggravated carjacking in Rye on Monday 9 October. The 38-year-old was arrested by Mornington Peninsula detectives on Wednesday 6 December and charged with two counts of aggravated carjacking, attempted carjacking and related offences. The incidents occurred on Ozone St when a man armed with a knife stole another man’s vehicle just before 8pm. An attempted carjacking occurred soon after on Point Nepean Rd, Rye. It is alleged the carjackings are connected to another at Carrum Downs on Saturday 16 September. Leading Senior Constable Melissa Seach said the man was remanded to appear at the Melbourne Magistrates’ Court at a later date.

Bay voyagers back on land PASSENGERS disembark from The Tidemaster at Tooradin after cruising the northern reaches of Western Port. Organised by the Western Port Biosphere, those along for the ride heard about issues affecting the bay and its ecology. Speakers included Andrew Morrison, Port Phillip and Western Port Catchment Management Authority; Thierry Roland and Alisson Bolden, Parks Victoria; Mitch Peters, Melbourne

Water; Anne Gulliver and Jamie Butler, Blue Carbon; and Lance Lloyd, Western Port Biosphere project officer. Topics included the value of the Western Port Ramsar Site; catchment management issues and the effect on marine life; seagrass; research into the carbon sequestration qualities of mangroves and saltmarsh; monitoring, restoration and research on Quail Island and the benefits of water stewardship.

Shops issue passport challenge OP SHOPS at Red Hill, Balnarring and Flinders have united for a fun event in the lead-up to Christmas – with a hamper of delicious local produce to go to a lucky winner. On Friday 15 and Saturday 16 December, the three op shops will open 10am-4pm for their Passport Challenge. Customers will receive a stamped “Passport” from the shopwhere they first buy an item. They can then have their passport stamped at the two other shops (without buying anything) to be put into the draw for the hamper. The winner will be notified on Monday 18 December. “This is the first time the three op shops have collaborated with each other and it is hoped that it won’t be the last,” Red Hill Op Shop president Felicity Jackson said.

8 Perfect Hearts & 8 Perfect Arrows

“The aim is to raise community awareness about each shop and to create an interesting activity for avid op shoppers.” Flinders Op Shop supports St John’s Church; Balnarring supports St Mark’s; and Red Hill supports Peninsula Home Hospice and other local organisations. Opening hours: Balnarring Op Shop, 1 Balnarring Rd, 10am-2pm Tuesday, Wednesday and Friday and 10am-1pm Saturday. Flinders Op Shop, Cook St, 10am-2pm Monday, Tuesday (during holidays), Thursday and Saturday. Red Hill Op Shop, 33 Mechanics Rd, 10am4pm Wednesday, Friday, 10am-1pm (2pm market days) Saturday.

Park and eat at the long table IT’S long and it’s a table … And it was designed to allow groups of up to 40 people to sit down together to enjoy a picnic lunch at Mornington Park rather than being spread over separate tables. These groups may include extended families who can now sit together and enjoy a picnic, rather than being spread over two or more tables some distance apart, or school groups who can sit at one table for lunch and be more easily super-

vised by their teachers. Councillors Bev Colomb and Sam Hearn opened the Long Table in Mornington Park built as a joint project by Mornington Rotary Club and the shire. Jogging, fitness groups, bike riders or walkers can meet at the long table and rest or chat together. The table can also be used by charities to raise money with such activities as the “Longest morning tea for cancer”.

Knots, photographs and even Girl Guide biscuits: Rosebud Girl Guides celebrate their diamond jubilee. Picture: Yanni

After 60 years Girl Guides still going strong ANYONE travelling along Jetty Rd, Rosebud will be familiar with the Girl Guide hall opposite Rosebud Primary School. For the past 60 years this multi-functional community landmark has been used and appreciated by guides and other community groups. It has allowed girls aged five and up to be part of a world-wide movement aimed at building confident, self-respecting, responsible community members. The building came about after an enthusiastic

group met on 1 December 1954 with a vision to respond to the post-war influx of residents onto the Mornington Peninsula. Riding a swell of community interest, they created a building fund two months later with a local businessman acting as guarantor. Fundraising got under way which, in those days, included baby shows, street stalls, bingo nights and the ever-popular card evenings. A year later the group bought a double block on the corner of Jetty Rd and Morgan St.

Christmas Services at UNITING CHURCH

Families and friends cleared and levelled the site to make way for the brick veneer building and works got under way with harmony, skill and enthusiasm. The first meeting in the new hall was on 9 August 1957. But the “icing on the cake” was advice that the World Chief Guide, Lady Olave Baden-Powell, had agreed to officially open the hall, 3pm, Tuesday 26 November, 1957. This was a great day for the fledgling Rosebud community – local Scouts and Guides formed

a guard-of-honour, Flinders Naval Depot band played a rousing welcome, and, alongside community leaders, hundreds watched on as Lady Baden-Powell took the key and opened the door. The hall, now with a state heritage listing, is one of only a handful fully owned by the Girl Guides Association of Victoria, with local people responsible for repairs and maintenance. A grant from the Bendigo Bank will finance a project to remove asbestos. Heather Barton, Seawinds Community Hub

Situated approx. 500m to the foreshore and positioned on 770m2 of prime Dromana land, is this fantastic opportunity to invest in your future.

As we all know land of this size, beach side of Peninsula link is becoming harder and harder to find and with Dromana’s median price improving by over 15% in the last 12 months and no sign of it slowing down, now is the time to purchase before the market rises even higher.

Schoolies! No warning A week of hell. Heat, humidity and schoolies. As Gough would say “Well may we say ‘God save the Queen’, because nothing saved me from the first week compliments of Schoolies” (“Schoolies light up” The News 5/12/17). Not only next door (six units) but on the foreshore organised by “Sure Thing. Rye Schoolies”, drawing thousands to haunt me complete with speakers facing south? Five years of schoolies no problem, but this lot alongside (plus the foreshore fiends) reached new heights. “Looking after the safety and wellbeing of the schoolies” apparently, but I ask four reasonable question: Who looked after us? Who at the Mornington Peninsula Shire Council approved this? Why? And, most important, why wasn’t I warned? A week of selfish, screaming, singing, boom boom music, together with those do-gooders (no doubt Green voters) who organised the Rye foreshore explosion. Gone forever, hopefully. Cliff Ellen, Rye

Not always men In The News of 5 December is a government advertisement stating “family violence has no good days”. This is the truth, of course, but it is unilaterally focused on men as perpetrators. All categories of family violence can be perpetrated by people of both genders. I am associated with a men’s group and I see good and true men suffering extraordinarily. The greatest supporters of these men are women, but men are so circumspect now. The post-separation incidence of male suicide is 40 per cent, typically men 35 to 45 years. This exceeds all the road deaths, homicides and deaths of our people in Bali by far. There are only ineffective and pusillanimous attempts to correct the situation and I have a solution, but would only evoke an “oh yes” situation. The advertisement goes on about “respect

women”, and we should, but we should surely respect all people - disrespect is not gendered. I see kids used as chattels by people, which is grievous and upsetting. Boys grow up wondering what they have done wrong by being male. As for the grub Harvey Weinstein, if you in any way endorse his behaviour you need to see someone. I suppose there are female equivalents to Weinstein but I don’t want to think about it. Give men a break this Christmas. These frenzies of misandry have been going on for years but, most of all, having happy children is best of all. Tony Nicholl, Mt Eliza

Paying the price I agree with Cliff Ellen (“Comment and confession” Letters 5/12/17) that indiscretions of a sexual nature 20 years ago are only now brought to the public’s attention. Why not then? Are they fabrications, exaggerations? This is happening worldwide, but only to the rich and famous. I recall that when I was a 20 to 30-something you would be hit over the head with a handbag if you did not acknowledge the attractiveness of a woman, even if only with a whistle or a word. However, women were women then: beautiful, sensuous, feminine, attractive, creatures and we all did what came naturally, as Doris Day sang in one of her hit songs. Sure, some women objected to attention, so we let them be and they ended up marrying an accountant. Assuredly, I have been accosted, molested, propositioned, touched and compromised, or better, by various women on various occasions. The married women were the worst, but many of us regarded their marriage as sacrosanct, so no go. Again assuredly, the only reason I have not been accused of sexual indiscretions from 20 or 30 or so years ago is that, sadly, I have neither fame nor money to sue for. Brian A. Mitchelson, Mornington

You’ll love what we do

Lads, we need to talk Driving along, you see a girl walking down the street, so you honk your horn, whistle or call out to show your appreciation, right? Wrong. Most women don’t like this at all. It’s not “a compliment”. Our recent “Young people and walking” study found this type of behaviour makes young women aged 15-20 feel vulnerable and unsafe while walking. The study of more than 1000 young people commissioned by Victoria Walks and Youth Affairs Council of Victoria and funded by VicHealth found 40 per cent of our young people do not feel safe walking in their community. Only 15 per cent of young women feel safe walking after dark. A top concern was being approached by strangers. Walking is very important to young people’s health. Our study showed they walk to get to places and to relax. With the costs of the growing obesity epidemic we need to encourage physical activity. Females particularly like walking. Victoria Walks is calling on local and state governments to invest in making our streets safer and easier for young people to walk so they can develop healthy habits as they transition to adulthood. But we need males to reconsider their actions. Young women, many as young as 15, told us they are regularly harassed while walking. We don’t tolerate this sort of behaviour in schools and workplaces. Men who think it is OK to objectify women in public places should take a good hard look at themselves, grow up and stop it. Ben Rossiter, executive officer, Victoria Walks,

Equality rules Maureen Federico’s ‘No’ vote fears (Letters 28/11/17) listed her concerns about the recent ‘yes’ vote for marriage equality. I am at a complete loss as to why the skin complexion of the parents and child Maureen discussed is relevant in any way, and I am angered and disgusted that child mistreatment was implied. Maureen asked many questions and I have one for her: Would she rather a child be raised by two same sex parents in a loving and supportive environment or in an out of touch, ill informed, prejudiced one? Unfortunately, I already know her response. Her letter epitomises the ‘no’ campaign - scaremongering at its best (or should that be worst?). According to Maureen when it comes to not having a mother, “No man can fill this void”. Not all women are born to be mothers and many, many people are raised wonderfully by their fathers. Australia is undeniably in support of marriage equality. Move on Maureen. Jane Nott, Somerville

Screen scream Which genius at the Mornington Peninsula Shire Council thought that putting up screens on the median strip through the Mt Eliza village shopping centre was a good idea? It was difficult enough for motorists to navigate through and avoid pedestrians because of sight blockages from signs and vegetation and now the council has added another hazard. The screens make it almost impossible for motorists to see children or shorter adults on the pedestrian crossings until the last second when they suddenly appear in front of the vehicle. Did anybody at the council actually think before proceeding with this installation? Robin Cooper, Mt Eliza

Southern Peninsula News 12 December 2017

Mt Eliza Chamber of Commerce is to be congratulated with its inspirational street decorations. Don’t see any of our rates at work from [Mornington Peninsula] shire contributions and not a local councillor within cooee. Pity that some lowlife continues to graffiti and spoil the overall happy effect. Not only does the main bus stop and shelter get dumped upon, but also private businesses and government offices. The shire has appropriately demounted the baby anti-graffiti sign which got tagged by the lowlife perp, and even its own signs get tagged too. When will someone utilise the CCTV cameras that cover the main street and surely must be recording the hooded neanderthal lower than a dingo’s what’s it that crawls out from under his rock after dark and drops his CROC tag around

our beautiful village? Surely the Mornington police or the shire’s environmental protection team, could actually use the expensive CCTV to catch the crim who despoils our lovely locale? The daubings will be removed, but it is always the unpaid public who has to do it and not the proper authorities or prosecuted perp. Ian Morrison, convenor Mt Eliza Community Alliance

Ditch the ditch The Sky Rail debate that ended up placing our future trains in flood prone ditches is a serious mistake. The recent heavy rain flooded many lines and stopped trains, with commuters stranded uncomfortably and unable to get home. Station St, Edithvale was flooded, its drains unable to cope with even the most moderate rainfall. I could imagine future flooding rains cascading down the walls of the railway trench and stopping trains entering safely. The high voltage DC electric current is an unfriendly companion to passengers on a stalled train. How foolish the choice of a damp and expensive ditch with its additional costs on moving pipelines and cables. Sky Rail gave a gift of open space to enjoy but government, it seems, is blind. Les Williams, Edithvale

Medical precinct The proposed $250 million redevelopment of Frankston Hospital with clinical teaching and research areas in partnership with Monash University is fantastic news for Frankston and the Mornington Peninsula. The project proposed by Peninsula Health and announced at its annual meeting last week will create 1000 jobs including 500 long-term jobs for doctors, nurses, allied health professionals and administration staff. Our region’s population will increase by 50 per cent in the next 30 years. But job growth lags well behind: our area has fewer than 28 local jobs per 100 residents. A medical precinct would lead the region’s future economic prosperity and job growth. Health and education are two of our biggest employers. With investment, both sectors can create many new jobs including long-term, wellpaid ones. The project also will ensure residents, especially older people and those with serious illnesses, have access to quality healthcare without travelling to Melbourne. We can have a world-leading medical precinct to tackle important age-related health issues, chronic conditions, and social health issues. The region is uniquely placed to drive and benefit from research into age-related health issues as the peninsula has the second-highest elderly population in Victoria. More than 30 per cent of residents are over 60, almost twice the metropolitan average. Our region has a large population, and deserves healthcare that can fulfil most medical needs except perhaps trauma and neurology. I look forward to a time when specialist doctors are based here and travel to Melbourne to consult rather than the other way round. Now we need all levels of government to support redevelopment plans. I urge both the Andrews government and the Matthew Guy-led opposition to commit to this vital investment. With proper investment and support, Frankston Hospital and Monash University’s Peninsula campus and will form the hub of a vibrant and integrated health, business and education precinct. Fred Harrison, president, Committee for Greater Frankston

Dog problem I sympathise with Neville Green (“Sounds of dogs” Letters 28/11/17). I have suffered barking dogs from two neighbouring houses with no relief. I have heard two dogs bark daily for 13 years. I have had seven different rangers on my case over the years. It is a shame Mornington Peninsula Shire doesn’t take the complaints about annoying barking dogs seriously, as it has with party houses. I am unable to enjoy my own surrounds because of four large dogs constantly barking. My problem could be rectified if the neighbours co-operated . Help please. Norma Cornish, Rye

100 YEARS AGO THIS WEEK...

Foreign citizenship results in disqualification Compiled by Brodie Cowburn TO THE VICTORIAN MOTHERS OF SOLDIERS. You who have already done so much for Australia by giving your sons, brothers or husbands to fight for Liberty, have now a great opportunity to help those whose glorious valor has won for themselves, and for the Commonwealth, a name that will live for ever. Do you wish reinforcements to be sent to your dear ones at the front? They only need 7000 men from Australia every month, one man every working day of the week from each electorate in Victoria. At present they are only getting 1000 men a month, and out of every hundred of those men there are 27 under twenty-one boys whose halfmatured bodies cannot bear the strain of war; and in every hundred men there are 21 married men, many of them with big families of tiny children: and amongst the other men who go are returned men going forth again. And all this time there are in Victoria 100,000 single men who are now leaving the defence of our country to married men, old men, and boys. Do not fail your own flesh and blood. Do not be false to Australia. Do not be duped by the enemies in our midst. Send the right men to help your own at the Front, by voting YES on December 20th. Yours sincerely, W. M. HUGHES, Prime Minister *** MR J. H. Lister, MP, will address a public meeting at the Frankston Mechanics Hall Tuesday evening to promote the reply of ‘Yes’ at the forthcoming election. *** THE Chief Electoral Officer has been inundated with queries from persons who are doubtful concerning their inclusion in the list of disqualified electors. In order that all doubt may be removed, Mr Oldham stated yesterday that the following persons are disqualified from voting on 20th December : (i) Every naturalised British subject who was born in an enemy country within the meaning of the War Precautions (Military Service Referendum) Regulations 1917. (ii) Every person whose father was born in an enemy country within the meaning of the War Precautions (Military Service Referendum Regulations 1917. *** MRS Dodd, of Chelsea, announces that she is erecting waiting rooms and lavatory opposite the station, for convenience of passengers, and also that she runs a cab to the Dandenong Market every Tuesday, and to the Frankston market fortnightly on Wednesdays. Return fares 2s. *** THE blind entertainers gave a concert at the Frankston hall on Monday evening in aid of the Home for Adult Blind. A good programme was gone through, which was much enjoyed by those present. The home will benefit to the extent of nearly £5 as a result. *** THE Frankston Wattle Club will entertain a party of soldiers on Sunday afternoon next, and on Monday a party of three hundred interstate soldiers will be entertained at lunch. This means a considerable amount of hard work, but let us not grow weary in well doing, and give our own boys a hearty welcome home. *** A VERY fine Referendum meeting was held at Seaford on Saturday evening. Mr Fox gave a most telling speech and the masterful manner in which he showed that it was the duty of all who had the welfare of Australia at heart, to give the government power to send help to our worn out boys at the front, deeply impressed the large audience. When moving a vote of thanks to Mr Fox the speaker mentioined that as soon as the result of the last Referendum was pubished the Germans

in the trenches opposite the Australians hoisted up a large placard bearing: “Scum of the earth, your mates have turned you down” and quite a sensation was caused by a man in the audience calling out “That’s true they did I saw them do it”. By request he stood up and described the incident, adding, “I ignorantly voted no, but by heavens I’ll vote Yes this time.” *** CR A. May gave a most impressive address at Frankston, on the 7th inst. in support of the conscription movement. The hall was well filled, and for an hour and a half he had the full attention of his bearers. He is a lucid and fluent speaker and evidently knows what he is talking about. He was accorded a hearty vote of thanks the close of his speech. *** LAST Wednesday afternoon, December 5th, Brigadier General Williams attended the Somerville State School for the purpose of unveiling the school Honor Board and naming the avenue where the trees are planted to memorise the boy’s at the war. He was received by a Guard of Honor from the Langwarrin Military Camp, and the school children, who were lined up under the charge of their teachers, Mr White, Mr Farnington and Miss Cole. There was a splendid attendance of the residents, relatives and friends of the soldiers. *** A VERY successful Snowball Tea, given by Mrs Moloney, resulted in a profit of £7 1s being handed to the organiser, Mrs Maxwell, towards the funds of the Red Cross Society. The Secretary wishes to acknowledge donations of bags for Langwarrin Cheer, and would be glad if any further donations be in not later than Tuesday 18th *** THE Red Cross social at Tyabb held on Saturday last, passed off very successfully and there was a good attendance. During the evening Mrs Woodhouse sang and Mr Ben King gave a recitation. Accompaniments were played by Mrs Boe and Miss Woodhouse. Dancing was freely indulged in, the music being supplied by Messrs Gibson and Chalwell. Our four latest returned soldiers could not attend, all having gone back to Hospital, but they hope to be present at a later date. *** J. H. LISTER M.P. will address a public meeting on Tuesday Dec. 18th at 8 o’clock in the Frankston Mechanics’ Hall to promote the reply of “YES” at the forthcoming referendum. *** MRS L. E. Westly and Mr H. D. Westly as executors of Charles Wright, deceased, have forwarded to the various charities that are beneficiaries under the half-yearly or quarterly instalments now due, ranging from £5 to £60. The list also includes £50 for the poor of Schnapper Point and Hastings. *** ARRANGEMENTS have now been made whereby tickets in The “Kitchener” Flag Grand Art Union are obtainable at all news agents throughout the country. If any difficulty is experienced in obtaining either the Art Union Tickets for the great £3,601 Raffle or the 1s Photographic Reproduction Cards, the Hon. Organisers would be pleased to supply direct. *** From the pages of the Mornington Standard, 15 December 1917

THE MEANING OF EXISTENCE... AND OTHER SHORT STORIES

The Emergency Superstar DJ Fiasco By Stuart McCullough THEY said it was ‘urgent’. Immediately, I sprang into action, which is to say that I managed to free myself from the couch momentarily and shuffle towards the laptop at a pace that wouldn’t trouble a glacier. What on earth could they want? Was I equipped to handle an emergency? Would I finally have an excuse to use the ‘siren’ function on my car? Only time would tell. This call to action was far from random. It came from a store with whom I had recently placed an ‘on-line’ order that I dearly hoped would be filled. In particular, I had ordered a vocoder. I’ll admit that it’s something of an obscure item. I strongly suspect that most people wouldn’t recognize vocoder if they fell over one while it was wearing a badge that said, ‘Hi! My name is Vocoder’. Put simply, it’s a piece of musical equipment that does weird and wonderful things to your voice, which is useful if, for some odd reason, you want to sound either weird or wonderful. I searched high and low for somewhere that sold them. By which I mean I typed the word ‘vocoder’ into Google and pressed a button. The results revealed that, short of building my own from bits and pieces I found in the shed, my best option was through a store that specialized in selling DJ equipment. I quickly dismissed the idea of building my own, especially since the earlier attempt to build my own time machine using melted Lego, flour and water had proved so entirely disastrous. Accordingly, I placed an order with the DJ store. I am not familiar with the world

of the DJ. I know that they’re very popular and largely responsible for not only getting the party started but also keeping it in good working order. They wear sunglasses no matter the weather,

Thinking of adopting a pet?

headphones to one ear while the other hand is used to point towards the sky. As if everyone ought to be looking at the ceiling. No one’s going to mistake me for being a DJ. Not any time soon. But I was left to speculate. Why would they need to speak to me urgently? Why the desperate need to make contact? My mind raced, grew slightly wheezy before needing a little rest before it raced once again at which point it tripped over one of its shoelaces and fell flat on its face. As best I could determine, there was only one possible explanation – they wanted to recruit me as a DJ. It all made sense. For years, the general DJ world had been intimidated by my vast musical knowledge and, frankly, superb taste. They’d never had the nerve to reach out to me before because they felt overwhelmed. I can’t blame them. Clearly, they had interpreted my decision to order something from them over the Internet as something of an olive branch. A peace offering, if you will. It was unlikely that there would ever be a better chance to convert me to the DJ way of life. Suddenly and quite unexpectedly, I realized that I was holding half a set of headphones to one ear while pointing towards the ceiling. This was destiny. There was no time to waste. By which I mean I had a cup of decaffeinated tea, watched the news and paid a couple of bills before deciding that I should get back to the DJ people as soon as possible. To prepare, I swapped my reading glasses for sunglasses and tore the top three buttons from my shirt. Immediately I regretted not

carry vinyl around in metal boxes and often wear shirts where at least one too many buttons are left undone. Beyond that, the only thing I know about DJs is that they often hold half of a pair of

waiting until I was wearing something casual as opposed to a work shirt. Still, time was so obviously of the essence. I then scooped up large armfuls of vinyl. Not having a metal box, I was forced to improvise, wrapping the bundle in aluminum foil instead. In my imagination, it was glorious. The DJ store would explain that there was an emergency; one in which partygoers had been unable to get their groove on and would I kindly rescue them. I would, of course, oblige, turning up and parking directly outside the venue before lining up the decks and executing a set so funky, so flawlessly brilliant with grooves so deep that the Mariana Trench would seem like little more than a divot in comparison. People, hands raised, would scream exultations in between short rests to regain what little composure they had left. I’ll admit I was excited when I called. Perhaps that’s why I immediately demanded to know the address I’d be heading to for my DJ set. There was an awkward silence. By which I mean they said nothing until I started to complain that the phone was defective. Then a small voice came down the line. They just wanted to check the details of the order. I immediately removed my sunglasses and started wishing that I’d hung onto the buttons I’d just removed. The vocoder, you see, was my birthday present to myself. Perhaps the ‘urgent’ message stirred something in my about the art of the possible. Incidentally, I’ll be throwing a small party. I will, of course, be spinning the wheels of steel. It will be awesome. You’re all invited. stuart@stuartmccullough.com

scoreboard SOUTHERN PENINSULA

Foon dominates Kangas PROVINCIAL

By IT Gully AN unbeaten century to Mornington gun Matt Foon has placed his side in a dominant position in its Provincial match against Langwarrin. Together with Brad McDonald (79), Foon helped his side to an unbeatable 7/263 against the Kangas. Langwarrin started well, removing both openers Sam Wiese and Brad Wilson before the score had reached 30.

Charlie Parker went soon after and Foon and McDonald were joined at the crease with the score on 3/54. Travis Campbell was good for the visitors, taking 2/57 from 22 overs, while Sam Prosser was an unlikely wicket taker with 2/22 from seven overs. Baxter has already won its match against Mt Eliza, Chris Brittain the hero, however, this time with the ball. Mt Eliza batted first and was rolled for just 110. Dale Irving was damaging early

with the pill and snared 3/29 from 10.5 overs, while Brittain destroyed the middle order with 5/11 from 10 overs, including five maidens. Chamika Sattambi picked up 2/24. Josh Gouge top scored for the Mounties with an unbeaten 39. In reply, Baxter is 29 runs ahead with seven wickets in hand (3/139). Daniel Warwick is unbeaten on 61, Chris Brittain scored 32 and Todd Quinn opened with 25. Justin Bridgeman is the other not out batsman. Given Baxter’s ladder position and

poor start to the season, no doubt they’ll be looking for an outright win. Crib Point hasn’t started too well with the bat after its bowlers gave it every chance to win its match against Pearcedale. After skipper Brad Davidson dominated with the cherry with 5/19 from 16.4 overs, Pearcedale was bowled out for 160. Luke Herrington snared 2/32 from 12 overs. At one stage Pearcedale was 5/60, until Kaine Smith (30) and Shayne Gillings (33) momentarily came to

the rescue. Needing to face up for the final four overs for the day, the Magpies lost opener Tom Pengelly to the Panthers’ Chris Dew for a duck. The Pies will resume at 1/0. A stiff performance from Jedd Falck (69) and Liam O’Conner (54) has placed Sorrento in a competitive position against Peninsula Old Boys. The Sharks batted first and made 193 in 77.3 overs. In reply, POB is 0/5.

Jewell saved Ridge PENINSULA

By IT Gully MAIN Ridge skipper Nick Jewell has come to the rescue to give his side a realistic chance of beating Red Hill in MPCA Peninsula cricket. With his side in some early trouble, Jewell made 96 to help his side to a total of 214. James Abbott was also solid for the Ridge in the lower order with 45 and Sam Lyons batted well for his 27. The Hillmen were on top early, skipper Simon Dart claiming 2/28, Glenn Collett 2/41 and Brent Martin was the star witth 4/55 off 21 overs, including the wicket of Jewell, four short of triple figures. Long Island and Flinders are locked in an intriguing battle after 12 wickets fell on the first day of their match at BA Cairns Reserve. The Islanders batted first and made just 117 in 62.4 overs. Michael Burke top scored with 39 while Andrew Tweddle made 15. Shark’s Dwayne Field was again the pick of the bowlers for his team with 3/15 from 6.4 overs, while Will Tuck claimed 2/28 and skipper Neil Barfuss

2/15 from 12 overs. With 17 overs left in the day, Flinders just needed to get through unscathed – it didn’t. Opener Mason Mail was out for four and night watchman Matt Burns for a duck. Flinders will resume at 2/20 with Long Islands’ Jake Middleton the wicket taker with 2/6 from three overs. Pines and Moorooduc should go down to the wire after Pines batted first and made 189. Rhys Chalkley opened with 59 for the Piners while Pat Jackson made a solid 30 in the middle order to help his side push towards 200. Alex Coad’s unbeaten 19 at 11 and 36 run partnership with Grant Humphrey (11) could be the difference between winning and losing. Moorooduc faced the final eight overs of the day and lost one wicket, the important skipper Shamith Kannangara. Delacombe Park has left Somerville with some work to do in their match after scoring 230. Joel Malcolm was the best of he Parkers’ bats with 62, while Nick Christides and Rob Fisher each scored 30.

Demons step back in time

DISTRICT

By IT Gully RYE has taken a step back in time after being humiliated by Baden Powell on day one of their MPCA clash at Overport Rd. In scenes of previous seasons, Rye embarrassed itself, losing 13 wickets in one afternoon of cricket. Batting first, the Demons were bowled out for just 73 in its first innings, all back in the sheds in 44 overs. Ryan Barnett opened with 4/28 from 16 overs, Michael Ballard claimed 3/27 from 17 overs at the other end and Craig Entwhistle picked up 3/2 from 4.1 overs. The Braves then came out and went wooshka, scoring 4/127 in just 28 overs before throwing Rye back in to bat with eight overs left in the day. It was a fruitful handful of overs for the Braves, claiming 3/9 with Nathan Rice capturing 2/1 from two overs. Still 45 runs behind, the Demons have just seven wickets in hand. There’s no avoiding an outright loss in this match. Mt Martha is just 75 runs away from victory against Rosebud, however, has just eight wickets in hand. Rosebud batted first and was bowled out for 108, Jason Mathers top scoring with an unbeaten 38. Brad Schreuder was the pick of

the Reds’ bowlers with 4/18 from 15 overs, while Kyle Bendle bowled 22.1 overs for a return of 3/39. The visitors were forced to face the final 20 overs of the day. They will resume on day two this Saturday at 2/32, Pat Nagel and Billy Quigley the wicket takers for the Buds. Hastings has placed itself in a horrible situation yet again, on its knees against Heatherhill. Once again, the bowlers did the job for the Blues, bowling out the Hills for just 185. Mitch Floyd was solid for the Blues with 4/47 from 15 overs while Isuru Dias picked up 3/27 from 16 overs. Kristian Miller top scored with 82 for the Hills, eventually run out. Facing the final 22 overs for the day, Hastings slumped to 4/59, Floyd top scoring with 32. Jason Hinde was the pick of the Hills’ bowlers with 2/22. In the battle of the neighbours at Belvedere Park, Seaford Tigers are one wicket down chasing 195. Seaford batted first and made 195, Jack Brooking the pick of the Seaford Tigers’ bowlers with 4/47. Matty Roach opened the bowling and snared 3/43 from 14 overs. In reply, the Tigers faced the final nine overs of the day and at stumps were 1/23 after Roach was gone for a duck.

Kitto on fire for the Stonecats SUB-DISTRICT

By IT Gully FRANKSTON YCW is just three wickets away from victory in MPCA Sub District cricket against Tyabb. After being rolled for just 153 in 53.3 overs by the Yabbies, the Stonecats’ bowlers then came out and dominated the opposition, having the Yabbies 7/44 at stumps, still 109 short with just three wickets in hand.

At the end of their batting performance, the Stonecats would have been satisfied with just a victory. Now an outright win must be in their sights. Callum Bradford-Briggs was the best of the Stonecats batsmen with 40 while Levi McLoughlin-Dore opened with 32 and Jeremy Daniel hit 25 at the close of the innings. Yabbies skipper Joel Wylier and Mitch Gill-Furness were the pick of the Yabbies’ bowlers with 3/33 and

3/39 respectively. In reply, Tyabb lost 3/0 when the score was on 11 and then lost 4/11 to be 7/44 at stumps. The evergreen, wily and popular MPCA star Andrew Kitson wound back the clock and dominated the Yabbies’ batsmen with six wickets. Carrum is in a strong position against Boneo after the first day of play. Batting first at home, the Lions made 8/246, thanks largely to a sensa-

tional 111 from Jake D’Atri, while Corey Hand hit 36 and Jack Thomson 26. Carrum Downs is in a solid position against Tootgarook, scoring 9/197 from its 80 overs. Ryan Lynch again flew the flag for his side with 45, while Chris Jones was unbeaten on 44. Andrew Libby made a spectacular first up impression for Tootgarook with 3/53 from 28 overs, while Corey DeBruyn piked up 3/24 from 12 overs.

Dromana has had its best start to a game in while, scoring 234 against Balnarring. In a must-win game for the Hoppers, skipper Kieran Voelkl stepped up to the plate with 68 and Adam Ciavarella hit 46 to help the visitors to the competitive score. Mitch Kleinig was the best of the Saints’ bowlers with 4/61, while Mal Coutts opened the bowling and snared 3/24 from 14 overs.

Tale of two Rosebuds, Welsh stars sign up SOCCER

By Craig MacKenzie MERGER talks between Rosebud Heart and Bayside League club Rosebud have stalled after the latter recently applied to join FFV ranks. Rosebud is keen to join the Metropolitan Leagues so that it can continue to play on Sundays and give its players a more challenging level of competition. State 4 South outfit Heart has shown interest in merging with its neighbour and sees the move as a great opportunity to create a large club on the southern peninsula with over 300 juniors, and senior men’s and women’s teams playing out of Rosebud’s home at Olympic Park in Besgrove Street. Heart’s current home ground at Truemans Road Reserve has arguably the worst playing surface in the league and the pitch and facilities at Olympic Park are far superior. The drawback is that only one pitch is available at Olympic Park. “We’ve got three men’s teams and a ladies team and at the moment we’ve only got one pitch so there’s already a lot of traffic,” said Rosebud senior coach Justin Shepard. “If there was a merger we simply couldn’t handle training on Tuesdays, Wednesdays, Thursdays and Fridays and playing on Saturdays and Sundays all on one pitch.” There was a second pitch at the venue which has been taken over by the local baseball club and Rosebud has been trying unsuccessfully to regain use of it. “There’s a long, long way to go before any merger could take place,” said Shepard. “Heart’s playing pitch though is nothing short of dangerous and I’d hate to be a travelling team going to play down there. “Our facilities are great but it’s our club and it’s been our club for 60 years and we don’t want to give it away simply for the sake of a few guys wanting to play on a better park.” But Heart still hopes that Mornington Shire Council will approve a move to Olympic Park albeit only for the 2018 season. “The council already has had $200,000 allocated for two new pitches at Truemans Road and it is hoping that by mid-February it can get another $300,000 grant and hopefully start work on the pitches next September,” said Heart committeeman Rob Vosjan. “I think the council is keen for a merger and although at the moment I think it is highly unlikely I would never say never.” The uncertainty surrounding Heart’s home ground next season has had a destabilising influence on the club. It has fuelled rumours of a player exodus and Heart has not appointed a senior coach for 2018. Meanwhile Langwarrin is yet to agree terms with any player as it prepares its senior squad for its NPL challenge next year. That effectively turns every player into a triallist including those currently registered with the club. The triallists from other clubs trying to grab one of 20 spots in Langy’s senior squad are Nick Bergmans (Altona Magic), Lachie Hogben (Richmond), Marinos Panayi (Mornington), Luke Burgess (Whittlesea Ranges), Dimitar Mitkov (Springvale White Eagles), Darcy Pawlik (Eastern Lions), Damion Wilson (Bentleigh Greens), Tapiwanashe Munyanyiwa (Springvale White Eagles), Sam Klepac (Mooroolbark), An-

thony Goweid (Dandenong Thunder), John Kuol (Morwell Pegasus), Scott Millar (Mornington), Harrison Michaelis (Bulleen) and John Carroll (Berwick City). The triallists already registered with Langy are Robbie Acs, Alex Metcalfe, Andy McIntyre, Boris Ovcin, Brandon Giles, Dylan Kilner, Serge Yanez, Lewis Foster, Navin Velupillay, Aaran Currie, Nabil Mozaffaruddin, Johnny Guthrie and Mat Luak. Langy lost 3-0 on Saturday to Kingston City at Baxter Park. The under-20s fared better recording a 4-2 win courtesy of a Travis Ernsdoerfer hat-trick and an opening goal from Josh Mulla. Langy has until 13 February to submit its senior squad to FFV and the decision as to which players will fill its two visa spots will be left as late as possible. Current visa players still on the club’s books are Currie, Metcalfe, Liam Baxter, Connor

Southern Peninsula News 12 December 2017

Belger and Paul Speed. Baxter, Belger and Speed are all due to arrive back from the UK next month. Langy’s under-20s take on Skye United next Sunday at 11pm with the seniors up against NPL heavyweight South Melbourne at 1pm. Langwarrin is keen to play at its Lawton Park headquarters but ongoing council work may force the club to again use Baxter Park. The venue will be confirmed later this week. Peninsula Strikers defender Conor Keely has joined the burgeoning list of newcomers training with State 4 South outfit Baxter. Strikers’ teammate Grant Davies also is on Baxter’s radar. Other newcomers include Izaak Barr (Strikers), Ash Scholes (Heart), James Foster, Jack Thornton, Jordan Redburn, Matt Morgan, Mitch Blake and Tim Lee (all Langwarrin), Joe Iline (Doveton), Jack Morgan (Hampton Park United), Kezhia Hooft (Sandringham) and Jake

Sheppard (Alston, England). Last week Baxter announced the dual appointments of Brendan Norris and Brendan Blackhall as reserves coaches. State 1 South-East title aspirant Mornington has bolstered its strike force with the signing of 26-year-old Welsh ace Adam Wright from Northcote City. Wright played with Port Talbot in the Welsh Premier League before making his mark in Victoria with Moreland City then Clifton Hill, winning State 1 South-East’s Golden Boot award in 2015 with 30 goals. He played with Brunswick City in 2016 and joined Northcote midway through the 2017 season finishing with 18 goals, one behind league Golden Boot winner Trent Rixon of Moreland City. Mornington beat State 1 rival Richmond in the race for Wright’s signature. He was the second Welshman to sign for the Dallas Brooks Park club last week when it was confirmed that Welsh youth international Curtis Hutson is expected to arrive in Melbourne with his partner next month. Hutson, 22, can play up front or in midfield and was only 13 when he made his debut for the Welsh under-16s during his time at Cardiff City’s academy. He is the cousin of Manchester United and Wales legend Ryan Giggs and has joined from Barry Town after stints with Port Talbot Town, Newport County and Merthyr Town. In other news former Matildas goalkeeper Theresa Deas has stepped down from the presidency of Southern United and is now vicepresident. Former Casey Comets president Stuart McLeod is the new Southern supremo. The club has struck an agreement with Frankston Pines to use Monterey Reserve exclusively as its home ground and training base after previously playing home games there as well as at Lawton Park, Dallas Brooks Park, Comets Stadium and Centenary Park. Southern’s inaugural Operations Manager Graham Dudley made the announcement at last week’s AGM. Southern also released the names last weekend of the first batch of players signed up for its 2018 senior squad. Goalkeeper Freya Crocker, defender Natasha Dakic and midfielder Nikolina Bucalo were with Southern last season, defender Ella Douglass and striker Sarah Wieck are from Bayside United while striker Casey Aarons is a former Alamein player. Southern will announce additions to its senior roster in coming weeks. Two Southern juniors, Alex Jones and Alessandra Davis, were part of the Victorian schoolgirls under-12 team that won the national title in Adelaide last weekend. Former Langwarrin star Alana Murphy captained Victoria which defeated ACT 3-1, South Australia 2-1, Western Australia 2-0, Northern Territory 4-0 and drew 0-0 with Queensland and NSW.

League fight to continue FOOTBALL

By Toe Punt THE fight against AFL South East with the large majority of MPNFL clubs is likely to flair up again in the new year after a letter was circulated by Geelong and District Football League last week calling for AFL Victoria to convene a meeting for all interested leagues who are dissatisfied with their governance. In the letter, penned by Geelong and District Football League president of 33 years, Neville Whitley OAM, there are a number of football leagues throughout the state who are unhappy with AFL Victoria as its remains determined to regionalise football leagues throughout Victoria. The majority of MPNFL Clubs continue to fight AFL South East’s decision to bring in a third division in 2019, which will include South East Football Netball League clubs. They do however support divisional football between MPNFL clubs only and have encouraged a third division made up of clubs within the MPNFL boundaries (includes Frankston Dolphins, South Mornington, Peninsula Old Boys, Carrum, Skye etc). Mr Whitley requested AFL Victoria to convene a meeting at a convenient location for all leagues to attend to discuss “their concerns and air their grievances in a proper and democratic manner.” Mr Whitley told The News that AFL Victoria regional commissions were working towards dividing and conquering clubs at a local level to achieve outcomes that suited only them. “Generally, they (AFL Victoria) don’t care about what is best for local football

clubs, their history and their volunteers,” Mr Whitley said. However, despite the request, AFL Victoria CEO Steven Reaper replied in writing, “as this would appear to be a localised issue, AFL Victoria does not support your request to convene a meeting of Leagues at any point into the future to discuss these matters.” Despite Mr Reaper’s generalisation that it’s a ‘local issue’, football leagues around Ballarat will remain pretty much unchanged after AFL Goldfields elected not to make any competition restructures from its senior competition review. The final findings of the review were released last week with the Goldfields commission electing to go with a “watching brief” for now. “It did prove difficult to identify an alternative competition structure option that is widely supported by the majority of affiliated leagues and clubs,” the report stated. The review looked into Ballarat Football League, Central Highlands, Maryborough Castlemaine District and Riddell District league. It seems one AFL commission has listened to its clubs. Perhaps AFL SE should consider doing the same with the majority of its clubs before this conversation again dominates the 2018 season.

MPNFL Fixtures released

Meanwhile, the 2018 fixtures have been released with Frankston YCW taking on Sorrento in Round one on Easter Sunday. The clubs are in discussions about Sorrento hosting the game as it’s home game, sharing the profits with the Stonecats. Discussions will continue.

Dromana women dominant at district bowls By Ben Triandafillou THE DROMANA Bowling Club has taken out another Mornington Peninsula bowls division state championship with their Women’s Four’s side on Wednesday 6 December. The team which consisted of Sandra McColgan, Gill Fletcher, Annemaree Ryan and Heather Gray defeated Sorrento at the Rosebud Country Club and will now be heading to the regionals in January. Last year the side made it all the way through to the ‘last 16’ and ended up finishing runners-up in

the state’s Four’s championships. McColgan said the team are again striving to make it through to the final but hopefully go one better this year. “It was a bit disappointing finishing runners-up but you’ve always got someone trying to beat you we all want a title,” she said. “We obviously want to win it this year. We don’t go in it to not win. “We are all positive girls and we have a great team to do it.” The team’s partnership has been on a winning streak of late with McColgan, Ryan and Gray also

combining in the district Women’s Triple’s at Mt Eliza Bowling club last month where they again defeated Sorrento. “We had the rain, hail and lightning that night but we ended up getting through it,” McColgan said. McColgan also paired up with Paul Twyerould, of Rosebud in October to win the district’s Mixed Pairs Championships at Belvedere Bowling Club. The Dromana women are now hoping to be at the Bendigo Bowls Club around April next year for the state finals.

Hardie sets sail as the ‘Pirates’ president By Ben Triandafillou A FAMILY tradition has continued at the Mornington Baseball Club with Matt Hardie recently voted in as the club’s president. With his father, Ken Hardie, steering the ‘Pirate Ship’ in 1992-94, Matt has worked his way through the club from playing juniors at a young age through to more recently assistant coaching the seniors. Hardie will be taking over from Chris Taylor who has spent five years in presidency growing both the club’s on-field and off-field success. Hardie said he is looking forward to continuing the great work that Taylor has done around the club and pointing them in the right direction. “It’s a bit of a weird feeling being voted in as president and following in Dad’s footsteps but I’m excited for what I can bring to the new role,” Hardie said. “Over the last few years he’s (Chris Taylor) really set the club up for long term success and I’m looking forward to continuing it on as the club keeps growing and developing. “We had all of our five junior sides make the finals last season and now I’m hoping we can get at least six sides together next winter.” Hardie recalls the little tin shed clubrooms

from when his father was president and said the growth around the club has been immense with not only the facilities and change rooms but also with the number of sides the club now puts together. “There aren’t any major changes that I want to make at this stage but I want to improve the connection between the junior and senior players to help with the junior’s development,” he said. “I want the juniors to get to know the seniors and improving that bond between them is probably one of the main points I want to focus on,” Hardie said. Hardie said he will be taking a step back in his coaching roles as he comes off being the junior club coach, social events coordinator, senior assistant coach and the senior reserves coach. Hardie will continue his playing role in the clubs first’s team. Also at the club’s most recent AGM, Myles and Gemma Dowsett were re-appointed the roles of vice president and secretary at the club while Teresa Webster will take up the role of treasurer. “They do a huge amount for our club and I look forward to working with them closely,” Hardie said.
