Clara’s the focus at biggest morning tea BELLY dancer Clara Tagliabue – whose professional name is “Jewel of the Bay” – delighted guests at Red Hill Lions Club’s Biggest Morning Tea, Thursday 10 May. Organiser Jenny Stidston described her as “amazing, really entertaining”. Michael Leeworthy opened his Red Hill art gallery for the event which raised more than $800 for cancer research. He demonstrated water colour painting and donated 20 per cent of the price of paintings sold on the day to cancer research. Morning tea was provided by local businesses and community singing group Larking About, led by Fiona McGillivray, sang songs from different countries. Emily Pettigrew sold aroma therapy and donated a raffle prize, and the guest speaker was Ian McBeath, of Southern Peninsula Cancer Support Group.

Plea to end ‘cruel’ freeway clearing Stephen Taylor WILDLIFE carers are on apprehensive as they wait to hear from VicRoads about timelines for the second round of clearing vegetation from the Mornington Peninsula freeway. The initial clearing of established vegetation on freeway between Mt Martha and Rosebud was halted following reports of animals being killed by the authority’s “forestry machine” – and even being mulched alive (“Vi-

cRoads stops shredding after outcry”, The News, 9/10/17). Community concerns, voiced loudly on social media and radio, slammed the loss of habitat, “cruel” treatment of wildlife, lack of planning and consultation, loss of amenity to the area, increased noise and air pollution, sun and traffic glare, stronger cross winds, increased temperatures on the road and even potential flooding. The protests led to VicRoads representatives meeting at the Rye home of Crystal Ocean Wildlife Shelter’s Bren-

da Marmion, alongside Eve Kelly and Craig Thomson, of Australian Wildlife Protection Council and Klarissa Garnaut, of WHOMP (Wildlife Help on the Mornington Peninsula) to find a solution. VicRoads later called off the clearing after accepting it had had impacted on wildlife and its habitat. Australian Wildlife Protection Council secretary Eve Kelly last week said replanting of the cleared median strip had not yet begun, possibly because VicRoads had not finished installing

zoologists will be onsite – information they were promised in the authority’s Vegetation Clearing Action Plan. The plan had called for the zoologists to contact wildlife shelters and vets to gauge capacities and organise care, Ms Kelly said. “To date, no wildlife shelters have been contacted, yet the shelters have been clear that we need plenty of time to plan for the wildlife that might need to come into care. “With no confirmation date from VicRoads this planning is still up in the air.” Continued Page 9

Mayor backs port industry plans MORNINGTON Peninsula Shire mayor Cr Bryan Payne thinks the floating gas terminal proposal for Crib Point is “a good thing”. Cr Payne, speaking on ABC radio on Monday, 7 May said the area between Crib Point and Hastings was designated for port-related purposes, which he believed fitted AGL’s floating gas terminal and a pilot plant to convert hydrogen gas to liquid at Hastings. Although the proposals were yet to go before council, Cr Payne said he believed environmental concerns and the two proposals could coexist. He said the council was campaigning to have 70 per cent of the peninsula “enshrined” in Green Wedge zoning. “We are very environmentally concerned,” he said. Cr Payne’s comments came one day before a meeting organised by the No AGL Gas Terminus for Crib Point group at Crib Point Community House. Those at the meeting voted to ramp up their opposition to further industrialisation in Western Port. The group has expressed fears that the proposal by AGL to moor a floating LNG (liquid natural gas) to gas terminal at Crib Point could detrimentally effect the environment and pose a health risk. The group is also opposed to the hydrogen plant being built at Hastings, which also involves AGL, to export liquid hydrogen to Japan. The hydrogen gas will be extracted from brown coal trucked to Hastings from the Latrobe Valley. “Japan will get the benefit of a clean green fuel while we are left with the dangerous emissions

from burning brown coal,” Candy Spender-van Rood of the No AGL Gas Terminus for Crib Point group said. Speakers at tonight’s meeting will provide information about the possible dangers as well as the environmental implications, and the fact that there will be no jobs for locals. Information sessions are also being organised by Hastings MP Neale Burgess and an international consultancy firm hired by the business consortium behind the half billion dollar coal to hydrogen project. The project has been promised $100 million from the state and federal governments. While planning approvals are yet to be given, work on the pilot plant at Hastings is expected to begin next year with the first exports within three years. Information sessions at Hastings are being organised by GHD, an international consultancy firm hired by the Hydrogen Energy Supply Chain (HESC) project led by Kawasaki Heavy Industries. GHD says the information sessions are designed “for people to find out more about an Australia-Japan HESC project to safety and efficiently produce and transport clean hydrogen from Victoria’s Latrobe Valley to Japan via the Port of Hastings”. “This is an exciting joint venture between Japan and Australia, which will put our countries at the forefront of the developing hydrogen clean energy industry, and bring jobs and economic growth to Victoria,” Kawasaki’s executive officer Dr Eiichi Harada said. GHD describes the HESC project as an “innovative, world-first” with the pilot project demonstrating “the viability of producing liquefied hydrogen, from brown coal in Victoria for export to Japan”.

Shire on board for island ferry plan Stephen Taylor MORNINGTON Peninsula Shire Council will push the state government to fully finance a $80.3 million car ferry link between Stony Point and Cowes. Despite some local opposition, the council believes the best site for the ferry terminal on Phillip Island is just west of Mussel Rocks. The state government gave Bass Coast Shire $200,000 to reinvigorate the car ferry project, with Bass Coast and Mornington Peninsula shires each contributing $25,000. The aim was to develop a business case to determine the cost, requirements and viability of a vehicle and passenger ferry service between Mornington Peninsula (Stony Point) and Phillip Island. (“Ferry ‘link’ in Sydney tourism trip”, The News, 13/3/18). The business case predicted the ferry would inject an extra $93.3m into the two municipalities over 30 years. It also envisaged 278 jobs being created “for the first year of operation”. Mornington Peninsula’s economic development and tourism manager Tania Treasure – who admitted an indirect involvement as she has family on Phillip Island – said the project had “strong support from the Mornington

Peninsula community with views in Bass Coast being mixed”. “Feedback provided through the community consultation has been incorporated into the business case; these changes do not make a material alteration to its content. It is therefore reasonable that council endorses the business case and submits [it] to the Victorian Government to progress the project,” Ms Treasure said. The study investigated community views on ferry terminal locations, economic benefits of the service, environmental impacts and schedule of works. The business case is based on 10-14 car ferry trips a day, for example, five to seven each way. The ferry will carry up to 300 people, 30 vehicles and two coaches/heavy vehicles. It envisaged that should the car ferry terminal infrastructure be developed, it would be viable for a suitable proponent to operate a car and passenger ferry service from Cowes to Stony Point. There would be no terminal on French Island, although the ferry would stop there. A consortium led by EarthCheck and AECOM worked on the case with staff from Bass Coast as project leaders, Mornington Peninsula, Regional Development Victoria, Department of Economic Development, Jobs, Tourism and Resources, Regional Tourism Boards – Phillip Island, Gippsland and

Mornington Peninsula, Parks Victoria, Department of Environment, Land, Water and Planning, Harbour Master – Port of Hastings, and French Island Community Association. An online survey received 1073 responses to the question: “Do you support the concept of a vehicle ferry linking Cowes and Stony Point”. Eleven per cent of respondents were from the peninsula. Of these, 41 per cent supported the project; 51 per cent were opposed and eight per cent undecided. Community consultations were held at Crib Point and on Phillip Island, which included community group meetings and rallies with about 580 attending, petitions and signs around Cowes put up by community groups. Peninsula respondents to the survey were twice as supportive of the car ferry plan as those on the Bass Coast: 76 per cent to 37 per cent. About 20 per cent were unsupportive as opposed to 54 per cent and four per cent were undecided as opposed to nine per cent. Ms Treasure said of those opposed overall more than 16 per cent favoured a vehicle entry/exit option at Cowes jetty. She pointed out that while a high proportion of Bass Coast residents opposed the car ferry, 47.8 per cent supported investigating the Cowes jetty as a better site.

Trekking with end in sight TUERONG’S Fenella Stibbard is among 2000 trekkers gearing up for the fourth annual Wild Women On Top Melbourne Coastrek, which raises funds for the Fred Hollows Foundation which works to restore sight among some of the world’s poorest people. The trek, on Friday 25 May, stretches 30 kilometres from Koonya Beach, or for 60 kilometres from Cape Schanck, to the finish line at Point Nepean. Trekkers walk in teams of four, including at least two women, and must raise at least $2000 per team. Ms Stibbard’s Sunny Sisters team are also raising funds for the event’s overall goal of $1.8

million. Fred Hollows Foundation director Gabi Hollows said it was inspiring to see so many people join the fight to end avoidable blindness. “More than 36 million people in the world are blind, and four out of five of them don’t need to be,” she said. “I am always moved and inspired to see people still going to such great lengths to continue Fred’s legacy of a world where no person is needlessly blind.” To support Ms Stibbard and her team go to and search for their name.

ing Crop Swap Rye there’s something for all people, big and small, to get fixing, sewing and growing. The aim of Sustainable Sunday is to bring our community together to make our bit of the Peninsula eco-friendlier. Based on the movement that started in the Netherlands, The Southern Peninsula Repair Cafe holds monthly repair sessions on the third Sunday of the month where volunteer fixers show you how to fix your broken or torn stuff for free, we’ve fixed chainsaws, clocks and heaters, sharpened secateurs and raised hems. The aim of the Repair Café movement is to reduce the amount of “stuff” that ends up in the waste. Rye Boomerang Bags is part of the Mornington Peninsula Boomerang Bag Network. Boomerang Bags is a grass-roots, community driven movement tackling plastic pollution at its source. Volunteers from all walks of life get together to make re-useable ‘boomerang bags’ using recycled materials, as a means to provide a sustainable alternative to plastic bags.The bags create a platform to start conversations, make friends, up-cycle materials and work towards shifting society’s throw away mentality to a more sustainable revolution of re-use – one community, needle and thread at a time! No need to be a sewer – if you can wield scissors or handle an iron you can join the fun. Crop Swap Rye is part of a national group of

Church backs efforts to help asylum seekers By Barry Morris TV footage of bombed-out cities, streams of people fleeing war or persecution, the tiny body of a Syrian boy washed on to a beach in Turkey – all are images graphically illustrating the story of 22 million people worldwide seeking asylum. The scale of the human disaster can leave us numb, wondering what on earth, if anything, we can do to help. Asylum means refuge, haven, sanctuary, shelter and place of safety. Because some of these asylum seekers end up in Victoria, the social justice group at St Macartan’s Catholic Church, Mornington, has decided to do something about it. The scheme, supported by the parish priest, Father Minh Tran SJ, sees parishioners each month collecting in-demand items such as tinned tomatoes and tuna, cooking oil, coffee and tea and cleaning materials. The goods will be taken to the Brigidine Asylum Seekers Project (BASP) in Middle Park, where up to 70 asylum seeker families and individuals a week go for food. BASP has been operating there since 2001, providing food and advice and helping with shelter. Social justice group members Chris Smyth said parishioners were distressed that some of those who had sought asylum in Australia were now without shelter or food. “We understand that those wanting to live in Australia are required to obtain a visa in advance,” he said. “The number of such humanitarian visas, over 18,000 this year, is far

Worldwide SIXTY five million people are forcibly displaced in the world today; 22 million, of who 10 million are stateless, are seeking asylum in another country. Most people are displaced in their own country and most are from South Sudan, Afghanistan and Syria. Uganda, Ethiopia, Lebanon, Pakistan and Turkey are first destinations for most, but many then seek asylum elsewhere.

exceeded by the numbers who hope to be granted one. “Those who do not receive a visa are desperate and many will take any chance to get here, no matter how dangerous the trip might be.” Those who arrive without a visa are detained while their identity is confirmed and their claim to asylum assessed. Once approved, they are permitted to live in community detention – they live in our community subject to specified conditions.

There have been various visas offered to asylum seekers, coming with different conditions, all offering only temporary protection. In 2016/17 all holders of a bridging visa were required to apply for either a Temporary Protection Visa or a Safe Haven Enterprise Visa. “To a fragile asylum seeker any possible change of status is threatening,” Mr Smyth said. “The application form was long and complicated and there were too few legal advisers to meet the demand for

explanation and advice. “The outcome was inevitable. Some filled in the form incorrectly, others panicked and did not complete the form, still others applied for the visa less suited to their circumstances.” Mr Smyth said the Brigidine Asylum Seekers Project had stepped in to help them “and now we at Macartan’s, Mornington, are part of that help”. Meanwhile, the wave of human misery continues to wash on to the shores of nations that may offer some hope of safety.

THIS year Australia will accept 18,000 applicants on humanitarian grounds. Many have also arrived seeking asylum without a visa. After official processing, they are provided with a temporary visa. They receive some government support, including Medicare, education and an allowance lower than Newstart. They live in the Australian community on either a temporary protection visa (TPV) or a safe haven enterprise visa (SHEV). It is estimated there are 30,000 on these visas at present. Victoria hosts more of these asylum seekers than any other state. These people are permitted to work, but jobs are difficult to find. To take maximum advantage of their visa, many have to move to regional parts of the State.

Taking a close look at the completed boardwalk last week were newly-elected DSAMP president John Bowers, vice-president Steve Hough, secretary Scott Cosgriff and former secretary Bill Hallet The boardwalk – fibreglass grating supported by timber frame and poles - was a major project for the DSAMP which since 2012 has been holding two surf days a year for the disabled at Point Leo. The days have become so popu-

lar that they now attract about 120 participants, supported by up to 250 volunteers. The boardwalk, which can be used by the lifesaving club as a viewing platform, cost about $113,000, which came from several government departments, Mornington Peninsula Shire, businesses and individuals. The official opening will be 10.30am Saturday 26 May. Details of the opening are on the DSAMP facebook page.

Laughter as vicar comes to town HUMOUROUS insights into religion and life in an English village are coming to Rosebud in a stage adaptation of the Vicar of Dibley television series. “I am a huge fan of Dawn French and the cast of the TV series,” director Keith Gledhill says when expressing his delight at being asked to take charge of the Southern Peninsula Players’ production. A fan of the series, Gledhill chose to bring three episodes to the stage: "Arrival", "Dibley

Granger (the role made famous by Dawn French) supported by Sarah Jeffs, Robert Lister, Chris Kirby, Eric McPhan, Isaac Scmidt, Anthony Connell, Lorraine Williams and Winston Hall. The Vicar of Dibley is at Rosebud Community hall, Point Nepean Road, Rosebud, 8pm Friday 18 May; 8pm Saturday 19 May; 2pm Sunday 20 May; 8pm Friday 25 May; 8pm Saturday 26 May; and 2pm Sunday 27 May. Bookings:

Live" and "Autumn". The TV scripts have been amended to suit live stage performances. “The Vicar of Dibley is a magnificent example of British comedy at its best,” Gledhill says. “I was fortunate to have had an absolute plethora of talented people audition. It was a difficult decision but I have managed to assemble a brilliant cast.” Geraldine Gordon plays the Rev Geraldine

Continued from Page 1 Ms Kelly said one of the wildlife shelters was told clearing would begin mid-May. “If this is true, VicRoads is failing to prepare and are already not adhering to the agreed and consulted plan,” she said. “How can VicRoads be trusted to follow the rest of the plan if they are failing in the preparation stages? Again, VicRoads’ communication is very lacking.” Crystal Ocean Wildlife Shelter’s Brenda Marmion said while travelling to Mornington on Sunday she saw two dead kangaroo joeys lying beside the road where vegetation had been completely cleared. “Wildlife volunteers are not satisfied with VicRoads’ response to our concerns,” Ms Kelly said. “They have failed to communicate and adhere to the plan that they funded. “There is no point in having a plan if they are not following it. She has called for the freeway median strip clearing to “stop immediately and for VicRoads to rethink the entire project”. Safe system road infrastructure program director Bryan Sherritt said VicRoads “recognised the importance of the environment – that’s why we’ve completed a redesign to minimise the impact on the environment and wildlife before installing these life-saving treatments”. He did not explain how the works had been “redesigned” other than to say the Mornington Peninsula Freeway as “one our state’s most high risk roads” would receive flexible safety barriers between Mt Martha and Rosebud. “As part of this safety upgrade, we’ve had to remove some vegetation which we’ve done in consultation with the CFA and local wildlife groups. At least two qualified zoologists will be on site during any vegetation removal to identify and assist any wildlife which may be displaced.” “VicRoads has worked with the AWPC and informed local wildlife shelters of the works due to occur,” he said. Vegetation removal is due to begin later this month.

Already parked, but booked after signs go up

Historic property inspires art for contemplation AN exhibition by artist-in-residence Rosa Mar Tato Ortega will give Coolart homestead in Somers a contemporary feel this month. Tato Ortega’s works - photographs, text, lightdriven collage - explore relationships between community and place. Overlooking Western Port and surrounded by wetlands, wildlife and historic buildings, the 1895 homestead and local community have provided plenty of artistic inspiration, she says. In the past six months, Tato Ortega has captured recollections and anecdotes from nearby residents, taking note of reflections while in nature and photographing the landscape around Somers and beyond.

“I will be presenting artworks that invite the visitor to contemplate what creates a sense of place,” she said. “Is it memories and experiences, or is it the landscape and geographical features? Or is it the relationships formed and the bonds between place and identity?” The free exhibition Colourt by Sea – A Kaleidoscope of Observations will open 2-4pm, Saturday 19 May, and run 10am-3pm daily until Monday 11 June, at Coolart Wetlands and Homestead, Lord Somers Road, Somers. Colourt is the original Aboriginal name for the Sandy Point area. For details about Coolart Homestead:

MOTORISTS booked in a No Stopping zone in Booker Avenue, Mornington, will have to go through the appeals process to have their fines rescinded – even though Mornington Peninsula Shire Council admits signs were erected after they had parked their cars for the day. Local Laws officers agreed to stop issuing tickets to drivers further along the road on Tuesday 8 May, when the booked motorists complained – but the officers refused to cancel the existing tickets. They said they had not been told the signs were new. The motorists, mainly Australian Unity employees, were told they would have to appeal their fines through the shire’s appeals process. Environment Protection manager John Rankine said the new No Stopping zone in Booker Avenue came “as a result of complaints from the community regarding traffic congestion”. “The five motorists who received infringements were advised to lodge an appeal with council – the official and only process to have an infringement withdrawn immediately. Patrols resumed on Wednesday.” One of the motorists, David Tucker, slammed the parking infringements as “totally unreasonable”. He said they parked along Booker Avenue, next

to their workplace, because “there is limited parking available in the area that is safe”. “The parking inspector did stop booking people after we told him of the situation,” Mr Tucker said. “However, the five [who were booked] must now write to the council to dispute their parking fines. “This is not a responsible action or a way to deal with the public.” Australian Unity general manager public affairs Michael Moore said building works at Peninsula Grange meant car parking was limited for staff. He said 21 parking bays were used for residents and their families during the day. Following the parking ticket fiasco he said Australian Unity had provided a temporary parking area, with extra parking spaces to be available when the development is completed. “There is a safe crossing point at the roundabout for employees to get from the temporary carpark to Peninsula Grange,” he said. “A risk assessment has shown that the surface and lighting at the temporary car park is appropriate. “Only morning shift employees are impacted, as afternoon and night shift employees can park in the 21 spaces at the existing site due to reduced demand from residents and families at those times.”

No mercy: Blowing over the limit will result in an automatic loss of driving licence.

Licence loss for all drink drivers THE days and nights of drink drivers who fail alcohol breath tests keeping driving licences on the Mornington Peninsula and across the state are over. From 30 April, any driver recording a Breath Alcohol Content reading of more than 0.05 will lose their license for at least three months. There will be no leniency for first offenders. Previously, drivers providing a “mid-range” reading between 0.05 and 0.069 could be fined but keep licences in some circumstances. Alcohol interlock devices will also be fitted to the vehicles of all drink drivers for six months after they are back on the roads. Labor Victorian Roads and Road Safety Minister Luke Donnellan said: “We make no apologies for stamping out this dangerous behaviour – and these new changes will get dangerous drink and drug drivers off our roads. “These laws send a strong message that there’s no excuse for drink or drug driving, which puts the safety of the other drivers and the wider community at risk.” DECKING T/Pine 70x22 KD ACQ ........................... $2.40mt T/Pine 90x22 KD ACQ ........................... $3.05mt T/Pine 140x22 KD ACQ ......................... $6.25mt Merbau 70x19 Random ........................ $4.40mt Merbau 90x19 Random ........................ $5.50mt Merbau 140x22 Random .................... $12.50mt

All drink and drug drivers will also be forced to take part in “a behaviour change program”. Mr Donnellan said up to 3000 licence holders are caught drink-driving with readings between 0.05 and 0.069 BAC each year across the state. The changes in drink-driving laws are part of a state government “Towards Zero” campaign in partnership with VicRoads and the Transport Accident Commission. “Research has shown licence bans reduce repeat drink driving offences by 70 per cent while fitting an alcohol interlock device cuts repeat offences by 63 per cent – that is a major benefit for road safety,” VicRoads acting deputy CEO Robyn Seymour said. TAC road safety manager Samantha Cockfield welcomed the mandatory installation of interlock devices. “The best approach is to completely separate drinking from driving, and for people who struggle to do this, interlock devices provide a safe means of returning to the road,” she said.

Costly dumping A COMPANY director who dumped thousands of cubic metres of industrial waste at a Somerville property has been heavily fined and made to pay court costs. The Environment Protection Authority took Colin Kirkpatrick, of High Street, Ashburton, to Frankston Magistrates’ Court after his company, Sonick, was deregistered. The court found that Sonick, who pleaded guilty, dumped the waste at 182 Eramosa Road East, Somerville. He was held accountable and fined $5000, as well as $6226 in costs, and ordered to publicise the offence and the penalty in local media. Witnesses reported as many as 20 truckloads a day arriving at the site with asbestos, broken concrete, bricks, tiles, asphalt, plastic, contaminated waste containers and paint tins.

Labor and city lose life-long supporter OBITUARY

Rogan John Ward 25/7/1943 - 3/4/2018 Real estate agent By Keith Platt THERE’S no doubt Rogan Ward liked to talk. He was also an accomplished musician. A man who travelled through life to the beat of his own drum, often with beneficial outcomes for others. That being said, it was perhaps no surprise that the stroke that led to his death on Monday 30 April occurred while having a chat over a coffee in a cafe with a client. A former mayor of Frankston (1981-82) and long-time Labor party member (and candidate), Mr Ward would have been 75 in July. Mr Ward’s wife Diana, with who he ran Frankston-based Commercial Property Services alongside his son Brett, was able to speak with her husband after he was admitted to Frankston Hospital. Proud of her husband’s involvement in community development, Ms Ward last Thursday recalled a time when sewers, or lack of them, were an issue: “Back in the late 1970s and early 1980s, no suburbs on the Mornington Peninsula were sewered, despite the rapidly growing population. “Scenes of kids around Kananook and Seaford having to wade through untreated sewerage outraged Rogan and his fellow councillor Heikki Mamers, so the two of them fought

hard to have the crisis fixed. “Eventually they managed to win the council over to supporting their call for the construction of modern sewer systems and Frankston became the first town on the peninsula to be fully sewered.” Mr Ward was Labor’s candidate in

Add a two-course lunch for


the December 1982 Flinders byelection that triggered Bob Hawke’s elevation to prime ministership. The by-election, caused by the retirement of Sir Phillip Lynch, saw an unexpected win by Liberal candidate Peter Reith over Mr Ward, 34,765 votes to 31,052.

Prime Minister Malcolm Fraser called an early double dissolution election and Labor replaced its leader, Bill Hayden (who claimed that a “drover’s dog” could lead the ALP to victory) with Bob Hawke. Facing another election in Flinders, Labor replaced Mr Ward with Bob Chynoweth who defeated Mr Reith (re-elected at the December 1984 election). In December 1982 The Age reported that Mr Ward’s father, Jack, had the Star Hotel at Narrandera and a farm at Gillenbah In the Riverina, the area where Rogan Ward was born. Mr Ward senior sold the pub and farm after three unsuccessful attempts to win the federal seat of Riverina, and bought three newspapers. Rogan Ward, who idolised former Labor Premier of NSW Jack Lang, was reported as saying his grandfather and great-grandfather were foundation members of the Labor Party. His great-grandfather was in the great shearers' strike of 1890. In the electorate of Flinders one does not have to walk far down the street with Mr Ward to realise that he is very well known. "In the local papers, I am very rarely off the front page," he says. Rogan Ward is survived by his mother Marjorie (an awarded author), his wife Diana, their eldest son Brett, their second son Liam and his partner Shu Shu, daughter Birra-li and her husband Chai and older children daughter Kim and son Mark, his brother Glen and sister Jacqui, and his three grandchildren Malina, Yuthana and Jantra.

A MORNINGTON man fighting a debilitating disease is still working to help others in their suffering. Geoff O’Hare, 57, who was diagnosed with Crohn’s disease in 2012, runs the Mornington Peninsula region CCA Patient Support Group. May is Crohn’s and Colitis Awareness Month, which culminates in World IBD – or Inflammatory Bowel Disease – Day on Saturday 19 May. Mr O’Hare is well aware of the stigma and embarrassment associated with bowel disease. IBD patients – especially when young – are often too embarrassed to discuss it, meaning few people really understand its impact on a victim’s physical health and also on their mental wellbeing. Contrary to a common misconception, Crohn’s is a young person’s disease, rearing up in patients as young as seven, and condemning them to a debilitating and painful future as there is no known cure – only a term of remission, much like cancer. “I began feeling ill at home and went off my food, began getting diarrhoea, passing blood and losing weight,” Mr O’Hare said. After myriad tests and repeated stays at The Bays hospital, the previously “very fit” patient lost 22kg in weight and was a very sick man when the disease was at its worst. Work was impossible. “I’d get up and go and sit in the study and go back and forth to the toilet,” he said. After being diagnosed with Crohn’s disease by a specialist Mr O’Hare spent 17 days at Cabrini hospital, some of it in intensive care, after which

he went home to “sit on the couch” and suffer in silence. “Your body is so messed up that your immune system packs up, making you vulnerable to anything going around,” he said. “In my case I ended up with blood clots on the lungs. It is a very bumpy road.” While there is no known cure the Crohn’s disease, and the related auto-immune Colitis, it is said to be manageable. “Something triggers it in the small bowel and the body starts eating itself,” Mr O’Hare said. “It is not dietary related and it affects everyone differently.” He receives a drug treatment every eight weeks to keep the disease under control, knowing that it may flare up again at any time. Mr O’Hare runs support groups at Mornington and Rye twice monthly, where sufferers share their experiences, discuss issues, and keep up to date with the latest treatments. “Others come for the social aspect as they all have something in common. The CCA’s CEO Professor Leanne Raven said living with IBD was “much more common than you might expect”. “More than 85,000 Australians live with the constant, often hidden struggle of IBD,” she said. “It affects their personal, social and work life, with so many people failing to understand the complexity of the disease. “By 2022, it is expected that more than 100,000 Australians will be burdened with the quiet suffering often associated with IBD.” For details, or to donate, visit crohnsandcolitis. or call 1800 138 029 or Mr O’Hare 0437 924 270.

TOPICS as varied as the husbandry and breeding of the royal spoonbill, to looking after a geriatric African lioness, were on the agenda at the 42nd annual conference of the Australasian Society of Zoo Keepers held at Moonlit Sanctuary, Pearcedale, last week. Keepers from across Australia and New Zealand discussed animal welfare and heard half a dozen other presentations covering the whole gamut of the animal kingdom: from spiders to polar bears. “The lessons learned in one species can often be applied to other species,” Moonlit Sanctuary

Wildlife Conservation Park founder and director Michael Johnson said. “Staff at Moonlit Sanctuary benefit greatly from their association with the society, from what they have learnt at conferences but, perhaps more importantly, from the contacts and networks they have built with keepers across Australia. “Moonlit Sanctuary hosted the conference to pay back and support the work of the ASZK.” The conferences, held every year since 1977, bring zookeepers up-to-date on topics relevant to their work.

Sport loses one of its biggest fans OBITUARY

Andrew Kelly 9/3/1970 - 5/5/2018 Journalist, sporting commentator By Keith Platt ANDREW Kelly had a few names. As a sports writer he chose his pseudonyms to suit his subject – Toe Punt for footy and I T Gully (In The Gully) for cricket. There was nothing subversive about him wanting to write under other names, but it was a decision made for the sake of appearing to be objective as Kelly was a player in some of the games he wrote about. Andrew Kelly became Toe Punt (Toey) and I T Gully. It ended up being an open secret, but his anonymity had never been about dodging any flak that his sometimes-flamboyant comments might evoke. Far from it, he enjoyed the feedback, from all directions. “He was controversial, he liked to be that way,” Andrew Kelly’s father Shane says about his eldest son. “He was fanatical about sport and about writing about it.” Andrew Kelly was 48 when he died on Saturday 5 May. Apart from two weeks at home, he had spent the past three months in the Peninsula Private hospital after being admitted for cancer treatment. Kelly was known for his commitment and positive attitude towards whatever he was doing, be it playing (football, cricket, squash, golf) or watching sport, coaching, being a club committee member, writing or spending time with his family. He loved boating and was particularly happy with his family on the water near their Paynesville holiday home. The internet enabled him to monitor games and matches and file his copy from Paynesville. He was a regular on several media platforms, print, radio and the internet. Father Shane says Andrew was his “best mate – we were only 18 years apart in age – was a people person”. He believes early school years spent in country Victoria contributed much to his son’s down-to-earth attitude and warmness to others. When Andrew was about five the family had moved to East Gippsland where Shane Kelly managed a sawmill at Combienbar, north of Cann River. The Kellys moved back to Melbourne, but those first four years of schooling had left their mark. Being involved in a succession of family businesses, milk bars and take-away foods, also nurtured young Andrew’s people skills. His secondary education started at Newhaven College on Phillip Island and Padua College, Mornington. He was hired by Leader Newspapers as a cadet journalist, working for that company on the Mornington Peninsula and at its then headquarters in Blackburn.

Espana – El Vito The Spirit of Spain

“People person”: Andrew Kelly was for decades a consistent player, supporter and multimedia commentator of grassroots level sport in Frankston and on the Mornington Peninsula. Picture: Supplied by the Kelly family

He then moved to what would become a more than 25-year involvement with the Independent News Group. It was at the behest of Tony Murrell, editor-in-chief at the Independent group, that Kelly began his career as Toe Punt and I T Gully. “We wanted a sports reporter, but he was also playing at the time and we couldn’t have him writing under his own name,” Murrell said. “He liked to create a discussion.” Kelly also wrote for more than 20 years under those bylines for the Pakenham-based Star News Group. He was an early user of online forums and would sometimes use them to “create” discus-

sions (with a flippant remark) that – usually close to deadline - he would quickly turn into newspaper articles. Kelly’s people skills also came in handy when he moved to public relations, the “dark side” of journalism, forming his own company Kellstar Communications. One of his widely acknowledged PR coups came after several members of the Australian cricket team were stricken by stomach problems during the 1998 tour of India. There were fears for their on-field form, especially that of spin bowler Shane Warne. Kelly was quickly onto food producer Heinz with the suggestion they

send the team a shipment of baked beans. The resulting publicity bounced around the world. “He was very enthusiastic with everything he took on,” Murrell said. “He was very likeable and had the best phone manner. He meant it, and people warmed to him.” After the Independent News Group was bought out by Fairfax Community News and in 2012 Kelly (and Toe Punt and I T Gully) moved their reporting duties to the Mornington Peninsula News Group (owner of this publication). Kellstar’s clients included Don Smallgoods, Tip Top Bakeries, Amcal Pharmacies and the E J Whitten Legends Game. He was Clark Rubber’s national public relations and communications manager as well as network development manager for three years until 2009. Andrew then had senior marketing roles with FC Business Solutions, Jim’s Group, Ventura Health and Bloom Hearing Specialists. His final job was national marketing and communications manager for Symbion, a national wholesaler of healthcare services and products to pharmacies and hospitals. While working these high profile jobs, Toe Punt Kelly never lost touch with sport on the peninsula. Journalist Mike Hast recalls “time in the broadcast box at Frankston Park when Toey and the boys were doing the Sorrento v Hastings grand final in 2011 - which Sorrento won by a point, breaking Hastings’ hearts. I had listened to Kel and the team calling the game on RPPFM many times, but being in the box was exciting for a print journo like me when Sorrento came back at the Blues, who were well in front at one stage”. “Kel was more excited than the Sorras’ fans as this was local footy at its best. Toey was one of the best ‘amateur’ callers I ever heard. Passionate, smart and quick as a flash.” Toey covered his first match in 1987 – a final at Alexandra Park in Mornington between Dromana and Sorrento. Such was the football community’s respect for Kelly that the 2018 season launch of the Mornington Peninsula Nepean Football League became a benefit for Andrew and his family. During the night, at which coaches and presidents discussed their clubs’ prospects for the season, there was an entertaining live video linkup to Kelly being interviewed in his hospital bed by Tony Blackford, a high profile MPNFL former player and coach. His bylines continued appearing in Mornington Peninsula News Group publications until late April, his illness forcing him to miss just one edition during his 12 weeks in hospital. Former colleague Fran Henke said the Kelly clan (her family name) “has lost a hero, way too early, but his giant heart, sense of humour, love of his family and friends will endure”. Andrew Kelly is survived by his wife Katy, son Lachy, daughter Breanna, father Shane, mother Maxine (Max), brother Adam and sister Tracey.

Southern Peninsula News 15 May 2018


Shire’s path of discrimination Mornington Peninsula Shire Council has produced a draft policy on footpath networks that, if adopted, will ensure that some unfortunate ratepayers will be forced to pay for a new footpath while other ratepayers will not. This discrimination is nothing new. For years council has imposed “footpath taxes” (special charge schemes) on small groups of residents even though a majority of those residents opposed construction. These footpath taxes can exceed $4000 a property. It’s about time that council recognised the lack of fairness in its processes and paid for all priority capital works, including footpaths, from its rates budget. Recent council surveys have indicated overwhelmingly that residents do not wish to pay extra for footpaths – yet council continues to ignore the expressed wishes of its ratepayers. Footpaths earmarked for construction in the draft document are clearly of major benefit to the broader community and should be paid for from rate revenues and not from additional taxes or special charges. To ensure all residents are treated fairly there should be no exceptions. Geoff Allen, Mt Eliza

Paths benefit all Mornington Peninsula Shire Council’s draft pedestrian access strategy states that a key strategic objective is: “The PPN is planned in such a way that, where practicable, pedestrians should have access to the network within 500m of starting their pedestrian trip.” If we are to accept this objective, our council must fully fund any prioritised footpath as residents who are subject to special charge schemes for footpath construction will incur charges benefiting other residents living up to 500 metres away from the prioritised footpath. In the draft document the shire has finally acknowledged its special charge schemes for footpath construction are a community benefit and not a sole benefit for rate payers directly the subject of special charge schemes. Bill Holmes, Sorrrento

Over resourced If ratepayers want to know why their rate bills increase annually, they need look no further than Mornington Peninsula Shire Council’s employment practices (“Shire avoids fair work hearing” The News 1/5/18). It wasn’t all that long ago that a company or organisation would have an office manager who looked after employee issues. Then, with the advancement of political correctness, that office manager morphed into the human resources manager, usually with a backup team. And now we find the shire has “a human resources manager, a change facilitator, human resources advisors and in-house lawyers … all highly paid positions on $100,000 plus”. But even with all this ratepayer-funded manpower, “they engage an external law firm to act on their behalf for employee matters”. Talk about overkill. Ratepayers are funding all this political correctness and backside covering. Where the application of a little common sense and decency in dealing with the current staffing issues might have worked in the past, it seems that nothing gets done these days without a lot of red tape, green tape, virtue signalling and council tying itself in knots. Having too many people all working on the same thing seems to get worse results than having too few working on the same thing. I miss the days of the office manager and I miss the lower rate bills that came with them. Christine Fry, Blairgowrie

Marina unwanted Three times over the past 20 years the residents of Mornington have overwhelmingly rejected proposals to construct a marina in Mornington harbour, yet every time there is a storm there are

renewed calls from some yacht club members for such a facility (“Calls for marina resurface” The News 24/4/18). Already, Shire Hall Beach has lost about one meter of sand since the wave wall was installed and now, with all the exposed rocks, it is no longer the pleasant safe popular swimming beach it once was. A marina would be primarily for the benefit of the yacht club with little or no benefit to the general public but, unfortunately, it would have the potential to cause significant damage to Mornington’s iconic Mother’s Beach. Apart from the potential negative effect on the beaches in the harbour, a marina would cost millions of dollars to build and maintain and from a cost benefit analysis would make no sense. The cost to repair the relatively few boats which may be damaged during future storms is insignificant as against the taxpayer-funded costs to build and maintain a marina. If boat owners heed storm warning forecasts (which were quite well publicised before the two most recent serious storms), if they have appropriate insurance, have adequate moorings or remove their boats prior to the forecast storm, there is no need for a marina. The wave wall (also built at taxpayer expense) was installed primarily for the benefit of the yacht club. Surely this is sufficient. It could even be argued that the wave wall contributed to the recent extensive damage to the pier itself, resulting in quite significant costs to repair, again at taxpayers’ expense. Neil Gilbert, Mornington

Call for change I found it a little embarrassing to listen to [the Mornington Peninsula’s] mayor [Cr Bryan Payne] speaking on John Faine’s ABC radio program spruiking AGL’s proposed liquid gas import terminal at Crib Point. It seemed the mayor had no idea about the proposal and wrongly claimed the “many jobs” that would eventuate from this enterprise, when AGL itself admitted there were no local jobs to be had from the process of turning the liquid gas back into gas. If this is a sample of our local government representatives looking out for the peninsula population and its wellbeing, I fear very much for our future as a tourist and agricultural heaven. Industrialising Western Port is not a way to keep our region the fantastic island of nature that it is at the moment. On the one hand the mayor was likening our peninsula to the Macedon Ranges and would like to see similar protection for our shire when, on the other hand, he was spruiking industrialisation of Western Port which has Ramsar-listed world heritage wetlands. Is it time someone else takes the reins of the shire, someone who can be bothered to inform themselves about the issues affecting our region? All one can say, it was heartening to see about 130 people coming out for an initial meeting of concerned citizens at Crib Point to get the ball rolling to fight this mind-bogglingly stupid idea of importing liquid gas into Crib Point while we’re shipping the same stuff out from elsewhere. Isn’t it time our federal or state government started to mandate enough of our own gas is kept in Australia for home consumption? Or have they all sold out to a multinational corporation at our expense? Rupert Steiner, Balnarring Beach

Industry needed I am sick of seeing anti-industry and anti-development letters in this newspaper, usually coming from people or groups that are retired and don’t have jobs and don’t want one at the expense of those of us that do. There should be more industry and developments on the Mornington Peninsula and Western Port, not less, especially as the population grows. Too many peninsula residents have to go

to Melbourne metro to work as there are not enough jobs on the peninsula and not enough industry. The businesses down here are small and there is a lack of large companies apart from Esso and BlueScope (half of which closed down years ago) and WesternPort should be utilised for more industry and jobs and not sitting idle, especially after the container port idea was axed. So next time people want to complain about a proposed development or industry startup, think about all those local people who want jobs here and not have to go to metro Melbourne. Patrick Geeves, Somerville

Animal helper Memo to Steve Irwin critic Desmond Bellamy (“The star treatment” Letters 8/5/18): Steve Irwin’s emotive passionately entertaining approach in bringing wildlife into our lounges did more in making a complacent world society aware of our rapidly disappearing wilderness than all of his critics ever did. This includes one Germaine Greer who, on hailing Irwin’s death as a victory for animals, seemingly ignored the feelings of a grieving wife and children. Irwin would often state his concern on a crocodile’s stress during capture which would otherwise have been shot as a stock killer or worse. In Indonesia he rescued one kept in a tank so small it couldn’t move. He was in tears when he saw it. Animals he showed on TV were calmed and relatively comfortable. How would you capture a problem croc? Lead it away by the hand maybe? Specialising in animals that were shunned for not being cute and cuddly, he certainly demonstrated to me that crocodiles have intelligence, putting them well above being just mindless killers. His tireless work on wildlife awareness to an otherwise disinterested public was priceless. Aussie (Austin) Sadler, Mornington

Council condolences On behalf of Frankston Council, I would like to offer sincere condolences to Diana Ward and

her family, following the passing of her beloved husband, Rogan Ward. Rogan contributed to our community through his work as a councillor from 1978 to 1983 and during his term as Frankston mayor, in 1981 and 1982. He made a significant difference to our community and was involved in ensuring Frankston was the first suburb of the Mornington Peninsula to have a modern sewerage system installed. Rogan was also a prominent local businessman who ran the Frankston-based Commercial Property Services with his wife Diana and son Brett. It is only fitting that his life was celebrated last week in a public service at the Frankston RSL. He was a much beloved father, husband, grandfather, councillor and businessman who will be greatly missed by all that knew him. Cr Colin Hampton, Frankston City mayor

Budget tricks We’ve been had again. The [federal budget] tax cuts for the “lower and middle incomes” will deliver (2024) $455 a year. For those making $20,000 while Flinders MP Greg Hunt makes $343,000, will get $7225 a year. This is even worse than the last tax cut to “low and middle incomes”. The first year is a con job in hopes that we will look no further. I need to state the obvious of the good old boy network feeding at the trough and taking care of themselves first, and trying to trick us into thinking they are doing us a favour. Those making millions a year will continue to pay nothing. We need tax reform, not tax cuts. Joe Lenzo, Safety Beach

Stroke rehabilitation program

SOMEONE in Australia will have a stroke, every 9 minutes*. Optimum recovery following stroke has been linked to accessing specialised neurological or stroke specific rehabilitation. St John of God Frankston Rehabilitation Hospital (SJGFRH) offer rehabilitation to people who have suffered a stroke or other neurological condition. Their neurological team includes a rehabilitation physician, physiotherapist, occupational therapist, speech therapist, dietitian, social worker and pastoral carer. They offer stroke specific inpatient and outpatient programs where rehabilitation is tailored to meet the individual goals and needs of each patient they provide therapy to. Their physiotherapists will work with you to improve your walking, movement, strength, balance and sensory impairments. The therapy will aim to return you to as normal function as achievable including a focus on returning to everyday activity. They will establish an individualised exercise program within their fully equipped gymnasium and provide you with a home exercise program once discharged. If appropriate, you may also access their onsite heated hydrotherapy pool. Occupational therapists focus on functional goals and can work with you to improve management of

daily activities including personal, household or community tasks. They have a fully equipped kitchen and occupational therapy gym, including a hand-arm motor rehabilitation system called a PABLO® SYSTEM. They also offer art therapy, cognitive therapy; therapeutic groups including a Breakfast and Garden Group, as well as return to work and return to driving programs. In addition if indicated, the OTs may also conduct home visits to assess safety and function within your own home. Speech pathologists help manage language problems, articulation issues, cognitive communication, social communication and swallowing problems. They can also prescribe alternative communication devices.

Captain Bruce claims Flinders election Compiled by Brodie Cowburn CAPTAIN Bruce was elected for the vacant seat at the by-election held last Saturday. The following is the result of the polling in key electorates: Dandenong: Bruce - 2225, Hall - 27, Holmes - 1216. Frankston: Bruce 1483, Hall - 30, Holmes - 479. Totals: Bruce - 14,445, Hall - 382, Holmes - 740. *** MR A. J. Munyard of the Department of Art, Working Men’s College, Melbourne, was specially asked by a local worker to assist the Frankston effort to the Red Cross by using his artistry to depict an Australian soldier starving in a German prison. He generously complied with the request and produced the pathetic picture “Starving in a German prison”, now on view at Mr Woods News Agency, Bay Street. It is hoped that its mute appeal will induce everyone who sees it to buy at least one “Red Cross House Badge”. The picture will be on view at the Red Cross Concert next Saturday, 25th May. *** LAST Thursday night a meeting of the Protestant Federation was held in the Mechanics Institute with the object of forming a branch in Somerville. The hall was well filled with an Enthusiastic audience. Rev Tonkin presided and the meeting opened with prayer. After the National Anthem had been sung, Rev. Tonkin addressed the meeting. Mr Ross then sang ”We’ll never let the old flag fall” Stirring addresses were made by two of the founders of the Federation Rev. Farquhar and Mr Ross of Ballarat.

Mr J. Twyford moved and Mr Horsfall seconded that a branch of the Federation be formed here. The motion was carried. *** SITUATED on the main Stony Point line, a few miles from Frankston, is the military camp Langwarrin and I would like all your readers to know this is one of the finest camps in Australia. The O.C. is loved by all under his command, and by all his friends who know him personally, and I think I can safely say, he and his staff are second to none. This camp is kept in beautiful order; the gardens are artistically laid out and are a sight worth going to see alone. Each flower bed is bordered by stones which are lime washed every day, and the whole camp is cleaned up three times a day. and not even a cigarette butt or match can be found lying about. Everything that thought and love can divise is introduced into this camp to make life for the boys more interesting. They have a beautiful hall and almost every evening there are pictures or plays. *** WE draw attention to the advertisement of Mr A Sullivan, who has purchased the bootmaking and repairing business lately carried on by Mrs Reynolds, in Bay Street, Frankston . Mr Sullivan, besides having stirling ability to recommend him is a returned soldier, having served with the A.I.F. for nearly three years. Customers are assured that their orders will be attended to skilfully

and promptly, and a trial is earnestly solicited. *** A WELL attended meeting of residents was held at the Frankston Mechanics’ Hall on Friday evening 10th for the purpose of taking steps to form a Branch of the Protestant Federation at Frankston. Cr. Oates was in the chair and stirring addresses were delivered by Revs. F. Farquhar and G. Tregear. It was unanimously decided that a Branch be formed and on Friday evening next a meeting will be held in the hall to elect officers, and other routine in connection with the Federation. *** A MUSICAL treat is in store for Frankston next Saturday 25th May, when a high class concert will be given by members of the Melbourne Albert street Conservatorium of Music under the direction of Miss Mary Campbell. The proceeds are for the Australian Red Cross Fund, to provide food for imprisoned soldiers. A glance at the names on the programme in our advertising columns will show what is to be expected. This board of the great pleasure Miss Constance Buchan gave her audience here on 27th April last, will be glad to see that they now have an opportunity of hearing this charming songstress. Sergeant Widburn has kindly consented to assist and he has something quite new in “our boys songs.” For the special convenience of those who like a certain seat, the innovation of booking a seat in any part of the hall has been adopted. ***

THE inspector of nuisances (Constable A. D. Kerr) reported: Gentlemen, I have to report for the information of your council that during the month of April I had the body of a beast removed from Gordon street, at a cost of five shillings. Upon making inquiries regards ownership of the animal I eventually traced the owner, and he defrayed the cost of removal. *** MR and Mrs A Goodwin and family of Cranbourne Road, Frankston, desire to express with sincere and grateful appreciation their hearfelt thanks to the Rev. E. Tonkin, Teachers and Office bearers and members of the Methodist Church and Sabbath School, also to Mrs Twining, President and office bearers and members of the Woman’s Christian Temperance Union and all dear friends in Frankston for their numerous letters, Cards and visits of comforting, Sympathy and Condolence, in this hour of sorrow at the loss of our dear third son Pte. Edward James Goodwin 1932, B. Company, 23 Batt. Died of wounds, April 8th 1918 in France. Aged 20 years and 8 months after 2 years and 8 months active service. A memorial service will be held in the Presbyterian Church, Burnley St. Richmond tomorrow evening 19 inst, where our dear laddie was chistened and trained to follow the Path of Love and Duty to his God and Country. He taught in the Sabbath School and was an ardent worker in the Church. *** CPL. F. MacDonald who was decorated with a Distinguished Conduct Medal by His Excellency the Gover-

nor General at Melbourne on Friday May 10th, is a resident of Langwarrin who, with his big brother, was accepted for active service early in 1915; unfortunately the brother has been a prisoner of war in Germany for the last two years. At the outbreak of the war these two young men were engaged in farming pursuits here, but the call for volunteers found them ready and both of them have participated in some of those memorable actions that have made the name of Australia’s soldiers famous the world through *** Municipal Notices.

A Brief History of the Middle Ages By Stuart McCullough THERE’S no getting around it. Not even with a Melways, a torch and sturdy pair of hiking boots. It’s just too big. Better, then, to take a deep breath and admit it outright – middle age has well and truly arrived and there is nothing left to do but to embrace it in all it’s tea-sipping, slipper-wearing, youth-pitying glory than to deny it. I’ll admit I was slow to realize. One moment, you’re an edgy, fashion-busting, envelopepushing bona-fide young person surfing the counterculture wave with the utmost of ease. Then, almost overnight, you’re stuck in middle age and yelling at the television. Not that there weren’t warning signs. I should have realized sooner. In particular, I should have realized once I no longer considered talk back radio to be a horrifying congregation of malcontented freaks that I stumbled across accidentally when attempting to move between 3RRR and PBS and, instead, considered it essential listening in order to remain informed, that something had changed. In fact, feeling that I need to be informed at all times is definitely a warning sign I chose to ignore. When I talk about vinyl, it’s not a reference to an item of clothing. Short of wearing lycra, talking about vinyl is the single-most middle aged thing anyone can do. I bang on about which albums I own and kid myself by thinking that by collecting shelves of the stuff I’m off the grid and sticking it to Apple Music. This is despite the fact that I grew up in a generation that


bought cassette tapes with ‘Dolby’ sound or whatever else they used to make it sound better when, really, they should have created something to stop it getting chewed up by your car stereo. It was our parents who collected vinyl, not us. We were the generation that treated the compact disc as though it would last forever. Which it will, only in the shed instead of the house. Despite this, we now bang on about vinyl and sound quality even though our hearing is completely cactus as a result of listening to Alice In Chains and Kyuss albums at an obscene volume. Which brings me to my next point – I know that I’m middle aged because I now claim that my generation had the greatest music of any generation.

Southern Peninsula News 15 May 2018

That it is vastly superior to the horrific assault on the senses that passes for music these days and which – to my ears - all sounds the same because it’s been churned through the same computer program. But memory is such a selective thing. When I talk about the great music I listened to growing up, I’m thinking of bands like Nirvana, Soundgarden, You Am I and the Fauves. I’m ignoring, however, that the nineties were also the era of boy bands, Britney and Celine Dion’s unholy zenith. It’s more than merely selective, it’s borderline dishonest. I no longer know what the inside of a nightclub looks like. I’m going to assume that nothing much has changed and that they remain the same wretched sinkholes of humanity

they always were. I long thought that hell is a nightclub where interminable sets by under-achieving covers bands are punctuated by blasts of ‘Tainted Love’ by Soft Cell and drink cards. It’s not just the idea of going out that doesn’t appeal to me, it’s that the prospect of staying up late will do irreparable damage to my sleep schedule and I may never recover. Medical appointments were once something that occurred with the frequency of Halley’s comet. Now I know the reception staff by name and am earning plenty of the medical equivalent of frequent flyer points. Leonard Cohen once sang about aching in the places he used to play. For me, my body is now in open rebellion against me and there’s very little I can

do about it. I am starting to accept bulges that I have previously regarded as a temporary result of a spectacular Christmas as permanent. This is the equivalent of finally accepting that the dodgy extension some hack built is probably part of the house. Perhaps most damning of all – I have started to use the term ‘young people’. Specifically, I’ve started to use the term ‘young people’ as a reference to a group of which I am no longer a part. It’s mutual too. Although I’m yet to have a seat offered to me on public transport by someone wearing a school uniform who is not Angus Young from AC/DC, that day is surely drawing ever closer. Next week, I have tickets to see a band. I’m already worried about whether I’ll be able to stay up late enough and how I’m going to recover from a lack of sleep in time to return to work. Even now, I’m thinking about where I’ll park the car and how the dog will react when we return late. As luck would have it, I’m seeing Augie March. They were big in the nineties and I have several of the albums on vinyl. It’s nothing to be afraid of. Not yet, anyway. As Generation X hurtles onwards, it’s inevitable that we’ll discover sorts of things about ageing that our parents already know, probably told us and we roundly ignored. But that’s alright. Each generation’s journey is it’s own. Now having said all that, I think I might make myself a cup of tea and have a lie down.

scoreboard Ladder leaders suffer shock first defeat SOUTHERN PENINSULA


By Brodie Cowburn IT was a week of firsts in the MPNFL Division One competition this weekend with Frankston YCW slipping up for the first time this season, going down in a shock loss at home to Pines on Saturday. After a disappointing performance against bottom placed Mornington last week, YCW were made to pay for their poor form with their first defeat of the year in a tense contest. The low scoring affair saw both teams struggle for goals, with Frankston YCW putting on two goalless quarters. Neither side was able to bag a major in the final term, and Pines were able to hang onto a three goal lead to claim victory 5.9 (30) to 8.8 (56). It was a weekend of contrasting fortunes for bottom placed Mornington however, who battled hard to earn their first victory of the year in a thriller against Bonbeach at Alexandra Park. Mornington again had to endure a final quarter comeback from their opposition, but this week held on to emerge as victors, winning 8.7 (55) to 8.6 (54). The one point win takes Mornington to one win and six losses for the year, but they still find themselves bottom of the ladder. However, they are now only a win away from surpassing Seaford and Rosebud and lifting themselves from last place. A disappointing Bonbeach side will be looking to bounce back quickly against Seaford at home next Saturday. It was another disappointing weekend for Seaford, who were easily beaten by a clinical Sorrento side on Saturday. Leigh Poholke of Sorrento continued his excellent run of goal scoring form, bagging four majors to help his side to victory. Poholke has now scored 12 goals in his last three games, establishing himself as one of the competition’s in form players.

Sorrento were comfortable throughout the entire day, and eventually waltzed to an easy 14.8 (92) to 5.10 (40) victory. The win saw Sorrento capitalise of Frankston YCW’s shock loss, as they leapfrogged them to finish on top of the ladder at the end of the round. At Emil Madsen Reserve, Mt Eliza were able to pile more misery on an already torrid Rosebud season, winning with ease in a one sided affair. Rosebud were competitive in the early stages, and went into half time only six points behind their third placed opponents. Despite their early signs of fight, a third quarter onslaught of eight goals to one saw Mt Eliza blow Rosebud out of the water, ending the game with a comfortable 17.9 (111) to 6.16 (51) victory. Jordan Capkin was the pick of the goalkickers on the day with five majors, while the league’s top goal scorer Jordan Moncrieff continued his impressive start to the year with another bag of four, taking his tally for the season so far to 25. Edithvale-Aspendale were the last of the victors for the weekend, fighting off a spirited Frankston Bombers at Greg Beck Oval. The match was neck and neck all throughout the afternoon, with Frankston Bombers battling hard to enter three-quarter time with a two point lead. Despite their advantage going into the main break, Edithvale-Aspendale were able to find another gear in the final term, holding the Bombers scoreless. Best on ground performances by Nicholas Connellan and Sam Monaghan were enough to drag EdithvaleAspendale over the line, eventually running out 7.10 (52) to 11.11 (77) victors. Edithvale-Aspendale will leave the clash full of confidence heading into next week’s blockbuster against Mt Eliza at Regents Park, with the winner set to cement their position in third place.

Rye survive rampant Red Hill resurgence DIVISION TWO

By Brodie Cowburn A TWO point thriller between Red Hill and Rye was the pick of the games in MPNFL Division Two football this weekend. Eventual winners Rye were comfortably ahead for most of the day, but a last quarter fight back from Red Hill almost soured their day. Going into the last quarter, Rye held a comfortable 29 point lead, with their opponents only managing to have kicked a paltry two goals and seven behinds. Red Hill however looked a different side after the last break, and piled on five goals to one in a thrilling last quarter that saw the contest come down to the wire. Despite the barrage of final quarter goals from Red Hill, Rye were able to just hold on to win, and will be sure to not get complacent in future contests after this almighty scare. Rye’s Thomas Baker and Tyrren Head were listed as best on ground in the 7.11 (53) to 8.7 (55) win. Crib Point went into their home clash against struggling Langwarrin hopeful they could notch their first win of the season, but they again struggled as Langwarrin were able to secure a comfortable victory to steady their rocky start to the year. The leading goalscorer for the league Jesse Murphy again starred for Langwarrin, booting

six goals in a best on ground performance. The forward has been in unstoppable form as of late, and Crib Point could do little to stop him. Mykelti Lefau of Crib Point hammered home five goals of his own, but ultimately it was for nothing as Langwarrin secured an easy 8.7 (55) to 12.10 (82) win, taking them to seventh on the ladder and leaving Crib Point languishing in last place. Another intriguing clash between two sides battling near the bottom of the ladder was the match between Tyabb and Pearcedale at Bunguyan Reserve on Saturday. Pearcedale’s Luke Jennings, playing his first match for the season, played an integral role in securing a win for his side with a five goal performance. Pearcedale led for close to the whole day, finishing with a comfortable 10.11 (71) to 16.13 (109) win. Pearcedale will have to be on the top of their game next week to be any hope of taking out a second consecutive win, as they are set to take on an unbeaten Dromana, who cemented their spot on the top of the ladder with a win against a respectable Hastings side. Hastings, sitting at fifth on the ladder going into the match, did not look overawed by the occasion and went into quarter time with scores level against their undefeated opponents at Dromana Recreation Reserve. Despite fighting hard, Dromana simply were

too good, with another three goals from inform Ethan Johnstone helping them to a 16.16 (112) to 11.8 (74) win. Ending the round just below Dromana in second and third place on the ladder were Karingal and Chelsea, who both enjoyed a fairly worry free round of football this weekend. Karingal hosted Devon Meadows at home on Saturday, and never looked like losing. Devon Meadows struggled badly to break down Karingal, only managing one goal in the first half. While Devon Meadows were able to win respect by holding Karingal goalless in the third quarter, it wasn’t enough to get them close to a victory, with Karingal claiming a comprehensive win 10.17 (77) to 3.8 (26). Chelsea also put on a clinical performance away from home against Somerville, claiming all four points without much hassle. Chelsea looked a class above, with Curtis Bywater’s six goals being the highlight of an easy day at work. Bywater now has 23 goals for the year, putting himself comfortably in contention to claim the league’s leading goal kicker award come seasons end. Somerville find themselves with a good chance to make amends with a clash against lowly Tyabb next week, but for now will have to lick their wounds as they went down by 42 points to Chelsea, 7.16 (58) to 15.10 (100).

Langy dumps Dorron, new trio arrives SOCCER

By Craig MacKenzie Langwarrin has sacked giant secondstring keeper Josh Dorron and is on the lookout for a replacement. Dorron will join State 1 South-East outfit Caulfield Cobras a week later than planned after Langy held up his clearance late last week. The local club was incensed when told that Dorron had trained elsewhere without informing Langy’s coaching staff. The good news is that long-serving Langy boss Gus Macleod welcomes three new faces at training this week. Queensland strikers Matt Heath and Chris Swain will be joined by tall central defender Lloyd Clothier. Heath is from Brisbane-based Olympic FC, Swain is from Sunshine Coast Fire and Clothier is from Victorian club Malvern City. Langy signed Heath a few months ago but Swain and Clothier will have to wait until the NPL transfer window opens on Monday 28 May before being eligible to play. Macleod already has three places in his senior squad to fill after Nabil Mozaffaruddin was ruled out for the season with a knee injury, Sergio Yanez has left for work reasons while Esmael Zaheri joined Morwell Pegasus last month. Langy lost 3-1 at home to Altona Magic on Saturday. Mornington’s recovery from a horror start to the State 1 South-East season continued last weekend when it travelled to the Latrobe Valley to defeat Morwell Pegasus 4-2. Mornington confirmed the appointment of Dale White as Adam Jamieson’s replacement last Friday and within two minutes Sammy Orritt put the visitors ahead with a free header following a long throw by Curtis Hutson and a flick on by Sam Scott. Hutson capped a fine interpassing move by slotting the ball past advancing Morwell keeper Senad Ahmetovic in the 15th minute to make it 2-0. The home side blew a great chance to get back into the contest by missing a penalty in the 35th minute but two goals inside five minutes in the second half had Mornington staring down the barrel. A deflected long-range strike by Scott in the 73rd minute made it 3-2 and Morwell was caught on the break in the 86th minute when Keegan Ziada drew a defender and Orritt took one touch before smashing a firm shot into the top corner.

Etheridge to return from England next week and plans to add another striker to the senior squad. The club’s FFA Cup run ended with a 2-0 loss to NPL outfit Moreland Zebras last week. Frankston Pines’ defensive frailty was ruthlessly exposed by Berwick City in their State 2 South-East fixture at Monterey Reserve last weekend. David Di Iorio had a free header for the opener in the 11th minute, Kurt Wagner-Goldsworthy let Nathan Credlin nip in front of him for another free header in the 22nd minute, a Graham Hill blunder gifted Orlando Mejias with the third in the 29th minute and a superb Chris L’Enclume through ball two minutes later allowed Jarod Blackbourn to make it 4-0. Pines gave a better account of itself in the second stanza when the contest was all over and its consolation goal

came from hard-working striker Mitch Lander after Berwick keeper Christian Morales had parried Ioasa Saemo’s shot. Peninsula Strikers remain on the bottom of the State 2 South-East table after losing 2-1 at home to North Caulfield on Sunday. Although Strikers had the better of the first half they still had to rely on a superb double save from goalkeeper Ash Kupre in the 25th minute. Ryan Wilson should have given Strikers the lead not long after but he mistimed his header at the near post following Nathan Smith’s corner. North Caulfield took the lead in the 55th minute through a headed own goal from Steve McLelland but when Femi Orenuga was brought down by North Caulfield keeper Daniel Shandler in the 68th minute Ryan Thompson converted from the spot to make


it 1-1. The winner came in the 80th minute when substitute Ariel Ritz sent his free kick from the left sailing into the top far corner. Skye United continued its push up the State 3 South-East ladder after a nail-biting victory over fellow promotion candidate Collingwood in a seven-goal thriller at Kevin Bartlett Reserve on Friday night. Skye took the lead when Caleb Nicholes finished well following a neat turn after a Jason Nowakowski cross in the 20th minute. However the hosts were level 10 minutes later after a fine interpassing move finished by a Pat Makris drive from outside the area. Three excellent saves from Skye keeper Jonathan Crook kept Collingwood at bay and in the 43rd minute Mohamad Elhassan broke onto a Mitch Blake through ball to make it 2-1 at the break. When Nicholes turned provider in the 70th minute to set up Blake for a tap-in the points looked safe for Skye but no-one could have anticipated the frenzied final five minutes. A looping header from Makris in the 86th minute gave the hosts a lifeline and a 90th minute equaliser from Federico Bono had the Skye faithful holding their heads in their hands. But seconds after the restart Marcus Collier pushed the ball forward and Daniel Attard’s through ball saw Nicholes felled in the area. Referee Mike Zha pointed to the spot and Nicholes stepped up to snatch a crucial 4-3 win with the last kick of the contest. Seaford United stayed in the relegation zone after losing 5-2 at home to promotion candidate Monbulk Rangers last weekend. Harry McCartney reports that the visitors took the lead in the 9th minute when Geordie Scott converted from the spot after Arash Sadeghi had been brought down inside the area. A long ball in the 35th minute was flicked on for Scott to make it 2-0 and almost from the restart Cameron Poynter made it 3-0. In the 41st minute Seaford’s Matty Schwellinger went past two opponents and laid the ball off to Dylan Waugh who hammered it into the top left corner to make it 3-1. It was game on in the 76th minute after Waugh was brought down on the edge of the box and a superb free-kick from Matt Morris-Thomas made it 3-2. Seaford pushed for the equaliser and was twice caught out on the break late

in the game. Chris Wynne made it 4-2 in the 86th minute and Scott completed his hat-trick in the final minute of normal time. Baxter had to settle for a point at Sillitoe Reserve on Saturday in its State 4 South clash with Sandringham which finished 0-0. Baxter came closest to scoring from an Owen Kilner header in the 11th minute which struck the crossbar, a Jake Kidder shot straight at Sandy keeper Gabe Zafrin in the 18th minute and a fierce strike from substitute Liam Kilner in the 80th minute which forced a superb save from Zafrin. Sandy’s best first-half chances fell to Dan Meltser but Baxter keeper James Foster and defender Tim Lee saved the day. In the 82nd minute a short passback from Baxter’s Heath Goss was intercepted by Sandy’s Chris Pratt but Foster saved his defender’s blushes with a magnificent save. Player-coach Dave Greening returned from his honeymoon in New Zealand to spearhead Somerville Eagles to a 2-0 away win over Bunyip District on Saturday. It was a club record third straight victory and Greening’s first-half goals leave the Eagles equal top of State 5 South. In NPLW news Southern United lost 9-0 to Calder United at Monterey Reserve on Sunday. Goals from Eden McKeown and Kayla McLeod gave Southern’s under-12s a win in a hard-fought contest against Calder while the under-14s increased their lead at the top of the table with a 3-2 win in a clash that brought together last year’s Grand Finalists. A Candy Kilderry double and an Alessandra Davis goal gave Southern all three points. Southern’s under-16s drew 0-0 while the under 19s lost 9-0. Here are next weekend’s games: SATURDAY 3pm: Langwarrin v Melbourne City (Lawton Park), Mornington v Warragul Utd (Dallas Brooks Park), Doveton v Peninsula Strikers (Waratah Reserve), Skye Utd v Bayside Argonauts (Skye Recreation Reserve), Boroondara-Carey Eagles v Seaford Utd (Wilcox Field, Carey Sports Complex), Baxter v Harrisfield Hurricanes (Baxter Park), Endeavour Hills Fire v Somerville Eagles (Power Reserve).

Futureroo scores spot in Australian side

Female shooters aim high By Ben Triandafillou FRANKSTON Australian Clay Target Club continues to push for more women in the sport and announced their first female life member last Wednesday night. Club secretary Jane Vella was ecstatic to be presented with the life membership after seven years of working in and around the club and was just as excited to see the large turnout of women at their recent ‘come and try’ day on Saturday 5 May. Vella said the club wants to move away from the mentality that it’s a “boy’s club” and to see an almost even ratio at the ‘come and try’ day was a huge step in the right direction. “We are lower in ladies and junior participation compared to the men’s so to see 183 people turn up with such an even ratio was quite overwhelming,” she said. “It wasn’t just people coming down to take advantage of the free eveng either - people were really interested to get involved. The club was absolutely buzzing and the queues were quite long.” Vella said that there are around 1,100 members at the club with at most 100 of them being female – only about 10 are active in and around the club. “A lot of our stronger shooters are actually

women and the way that shooting is going at the moment we should be looking at a really positive boost,” Vella said. “We’re slowly breaking down that barrier of it being a ‘men’s club’ which was around years ago and starting to create a more family friendly atmosphere. “More ladies are starting to compete and a lot are coming down now with their family to watch.” Frankston Australian Clay Target Club has seen success recently with their female clay shooters as Laetisha Scanlan flew the Australian flag at the Gold Coast Commonwealth Games earlier this year. Scanlan returned home with her second gold medal in the Women’s trap and defended her gold medal honours from the 2014 Glasgow Commonwealth Games. Vella said the success of Laetisha and other female shooters from the sport has “definitely helped with creating exposure” and that it’s “really starting to create a brand.” The club is hoping through their recent success and with the help of the ‘come and try’ sessions that they can reach a 40 per cent female participation in membership, committee members, coaches and in competition to fall in line with the 2019 National sport participation goal.

MENTONE hockey player Gracie Geddis has unexpectedly received news via text message from a friend that she will take on some of the world’s best junior hockey players in Cape Town, South Africa next month. Graice, 16, is one of two Victorian girls selected to join the under-17s Australian side and is set to fly out on Friday 29 June. Gracie’s mother, Wendy, said it was amazing to hear that her daughter had made the Australian side after receiving the news in such an odd fashion. “It was incredible,” Wendy said. “It was all a bit of a surprise when she heard she had made it after her friend stumbled across it online.” “It was one of her goals that she wanted to achieve, and I think she’s pretty keen to get over there now.” After a stellar performance at the Pacific School Games in December last year, the Mentone Girls’ Secondary College student was chosen by School Sports Australia to represent the country on the two-week international tour, and Wendy believes this will be another step up in Gracie’s hockey but is a step that she is pretty keen to take. “Playing with the best players in Australia gives her another level experience,” Wendy said. “I think she’ll love it.

“She’s extremely excited and a little nervous now that she knows how far away it is.” Gracie, who has been competing at state level since she was 11-years-old, also competed recently at the 2018 National Championships, held in Launceston, as part of the Victorian under-18 Women’s team and was announced as a “Futureoo” by Hockey Australia – a title which recognises up-and-coming hockey talent in Australia. Aside from representing her state and country, Gracie also plays in the Mentone women’s premiership team which finished runners-up in last season’s competition – a position which she hopes to go one better this season. To assist her on her trip to South Africa, Isaacs MP Mark Dreyfus presented a $500 Local Sporting Champions grant to Gracie two weeks ago. “We have some wonderful sporting clubs in the City of Kingston and Gracie, her family and the Mentone Hockey Club should be very proud,” Dreyfus said. Gracie is also raising funds on her own behalf to help cover the costs of her 2018/19 hockey journey.

Sharks women strike five in championships BASKETBALL

SOUTHERN Peninsula Sharks state championship women’s side continue to show that they deserve their spot in the highest division as they slotted their fifth victory for their season on the road against McKinnon Cougars in round seven of the Big V. The Sharks’ young squad shot at a 47 per cent clip to defeat the Cougars (58-82) away from home, with Jaz Shelley (26 pts) and Peyton Little (23 pts) again delivering solid performances. While the Cougars took a six point lead out of the first break, the Sharks quickly turned the game around in the second quarter to finish the half up by nine points. The Sharks continued to pull away throughout the second half and finished the match with a 24-point victory, cementing their fourth spot on the ladder. The Sharks’ division two men’s side weren’t as fortunate when they played away against Mildura Heat at the “Hothouse”, with one of their main men Colin Voss out for the next couple of weeks. The Sharks were competitive at the start of the game but eventually the

Heat wore them down in the second and third quarters to walk away with a 21-point victory (89-68). Men’s Sharks head coach Lucas Allen said the travel can always be a complication but without a couple of main players, it made it even harder. “We were pretty competitive for 30 to 40 minutes of the game but with Colin Voss and Dave Smith unavailable it made it tough for us,” he said. “Smith returns this week which will add some extra depth to the side and playing at home will make a big difference with the energy and momentum that the crowd provides.” Allen was also full of praise for their younger players that continue to take the step up in their senior men’s and women’s sides. “We don’t play them just for the sake of playing them,” he said. “We’re managing to give them these opportunities but they’re proven and more than capable to compete at this higher level. “We’re trying to build something sustainable with a portion of the side being younger players, a portion of the side being older and wiser and then some that are in their prime so that we can continue to be competitive.”

In division one of the men’s league, Chelsea Gulls had a comprehensive victory over Collingwood on Saturday 5 May after a commanding 56-29 second half push. While the All Stars hit the board early, the Gulls hit back in the second half with Brasser (22 pts), Standerfer (18 pts, 11 rbs, 11 ast), Frost (17pts) and Tyrrell (14 pts) contributing significantly to a 25-point victory (64-89). The Gulls tried to back it up on the Sunday against Shepparton but after a tough battle and a 10-point final quarter from Matt Bartlett (16 pts), it was the Gators (69-75) who came out on top. Brasser (23 pts) and Standerfer (20 pts) again put in solid performances. The third-placed Gulls women’s side were the victors in a low scoring contest against Western Port (46-55) as the Steelers remain winless after the seventh round. The Steelers got going late, but after scoring single figures in the first two quarters, it wasn’t enough to make up the ground. Second win: Corey Standferer helped Chelsea Gulls secure a 25-point victory with a strong second half. Picture: Supplied. Southern Peninsula News

Whateley lands Games silver, joins pro ranks By Ben Triandafillou PENINSULA boxer Jason Whateley has fallen just shy of his dream gold medal at the Commonwealth Games on Saturday 14 April after being defeated by none-other than the 2014 Commonwealth Games gold medallist, David Nyika. After three attempts at qualifying for the Games, Whateley finally broke through earlier this year and cemented his spot in the 13-strong Australian boxing squad which headed to the Gold Coast for this year’s Commonwealth Games. Whateley entered the international competition with one goal in mind, a gold medal in the heavyweight division (91kg), and it took the world’s seventh best heavyweight boxer, David Nyika, to stop him in the final. After dismantling Northern Ireland in the quarter-finals and then India in the semi-finals, Whateley faced the 22-year-old New Zealander in the main event and went down by a unanimous 3-0 decision. Whateley claimed a silver medal and said that while he was a bit disappointed on missing out on gold, it was still a dream come true for him to fight in front of the Australian crowd. “It’s a weird situation to be in,” he said. “If someone told you several years ago that you’d be competing for a gold medal at the Commonwealth Games, you wouldn’t believe them. “But I went there with the mindset to get gold and wouldn’t settle for anything short of it, so it was a bit disappointing to get so close but I’m sure I’ll look back and be proud of

what I’ve done and how I fought.” The Commonwealth Games had always been the main target for Whateley after an intense 13-fight year and he made sure he took everything into account when competing against some of the world’s best boxers. “We had a plan and we just had to go through the motions,” he said

when talking about his gold medal fight. “We needed to keep the work rate up. He (Nyika) was pretty different to normal fighters so we had to be smart with it and in the end it wasn’t my day and he deserved the win.” Peninsula Boxing head coach Marcos Amado was there every step of the way with Whateley, and after a

year and a half of working together, Amado said he couldn’t be prouder of how Whateley handled himself in the ring. “We’re not getting outdone by guys who are at another gym around the corner from us,” he said. “We are only losing fights in the major international competitions and against the world’s best boxers.”

“No one trains harder than he (Whateley) does. We still have a long way to go but we’re heading in the right direction.” Last Monday, Whateley and fellow Australian boxer, and 2018 Commonwealth Games gold medallist Harry Garside, went down to Peninsula Boxing for a 45-minute meet-andgreet with the junior boxers and put on show their rewards for representing the country. But after a year which accumulated a Commonwealth Games silver medal, two Australian titles, a Victorian title, an Australasian Golden Gloves gold medal and a top eight finish in the World Championships, Whateley said he had gained a lot of experience and is ready to take a “bit of time off now”. “I’ll be back around June to lateMay and until then I’ll just be doing little bits and pieces,” he said. “I’m looking forward to starting a new chapter now.” That “new chapter” was announced on Sunday 6 May as joining the professional ranks after racking up 98 fights in his amateur career. Whateley took to Facebook to announce the news and said, “Through my amateur days I’ve travelled the world and gotten to see places I never imagined I’d visit, 11 Countries in total and fought in every state of this great and beautiful country but it’s time I make a change... It’s time to join the pro ranks!” A time and date is yet to be announced on when he will make the transition but he said he will make sure he’ll “never die wondering”.

Saints’ youngsters step up to Championship NETBALL

SOUTHERN Saints under-19s and division one players took the step up to make their VNL Championship debut in round three as the side suffered further injuries to their already depleting line-up. The Saints, who are already low on numbers, suffered another three injuries on Wednesday night against league leaders Melbourne University. It was always going to be a task for the inexperienced side to compete with the Lightning and inevitably they ran away with a 23-point victory over the Saints (55-32). But Southern Saints head coach Jade Heinrich wasn’t all too fazed by the performance as she said, “it was always going to pretty tough for 18 and 19-year-olds to come up to this level”. “At the end of the day, you look at the game and it wasn’t all that bad,” she said. “Across the board they (Melbourne University) have some really skilful players but they (division one and under-19s players) got out there and gave it a good crack. “Mel Webster came up from the under-19s and played most of the game in the centre, and she held her own and did some really good things out there. “While some aren’t quite ready yet, we are going to need those players to try and step up and we are going to need to do everything we can to get them feeling comfortable and get them to know their new team mates as quickly as possible.” Southern Saints’ division one side also fell to Melbourne University (52-36) but the under-19s dug to deep for a one-goal victory (35-36). Heinrich said it was a tough game for the Saints, but they did very well to hang on in the end. “They were up for most of the game, but Melbourne Uni were coming very hard, so it showed a lot of character for them to hold on for the win,” she said. Peninsula Waves faced the Ariels in round three and copped narrow losses in their Championship (41-42) and division one (47-49) matches, going down by one and two goals

respectively. The Waves and Ariels produced a hot contest across all four quarters where the score was level for a large portion of both matches but eventually both of the Ariels team’s managed to hold their leads and walk away with the wins. The Waves sought revenge in the under-19s and the younger side secured their second win of the season with a 17-goal victory over the Ariels (55-38). The Waves will face third-placed Geelong Cougars next Wednesday at 7:00pm while the Southern Saints will come up against Hawks Netball at 9:40pm.
