Medals stolen Anzac Day eve

Memories gone: Many veteran Ron Bergman’s medals were stolen the day before Anzac Day. Picture: Yanni

Sports ‘in the swim’ Neil Walker neil@mpnews.com.au A COMPANY set up by Frankston Council to manage swim centres has been negotiating with Mornington Peninsula Shire council to take over management of peninsula sports centres. Peninsula Leisure Pty Ltd has expressed an interest in operating recreation centres across the peninsula. The shire tested market appetite for taking over management of Pelican

Park Recreation Centre in Hastings, the Crib Point Pool, Civic Reserve Recreation Centre in Mornington and the Somerville Recreation and Community Centre. Peninsula Leisure Pty Ltd, a subsidiary of Frankston Council established in 2013, operates the Peninsula Aquatic Recreation Centre (PARC) in Frankston and the Pines Forest Aquatic Centre in Frankston North. It is not known if Peninsula Leisure makes a profit or loss since no financial accounts are publicly available. The company is effectively funded

Tuesday 16 May 2017

by Frankston ratepayers. Negotiations to possibly outsource the management of community sports centres on a for-profit basis comes amid delays to basketball stadium upgrades in Frankston and Somerville. The Western Port Basketball Association is unhappy that no reconstruction work has begun at the Somerville Recreation and Community Centre -one of the stadiums that may see its management outsourced by the shire -- a year after basketball courts and the main building were fire damaged.

Frankston Council is engaged in a bitter fight with the Frankston & District Basketball Stadium about promised upgrades to its stadium amid fears by the association that council wants to seize control of its buildings leased on council land. Frankston Council CEO Dennis Hovenden did not answer questions about Peninsula Leisure’s finances before publication deadline. ASIC records show 300,000 shares in Peninsula Leisure have been issued and are wholly owned by Frankston Council. Continued Page 15

Stephen Taylor steve@mpnews.com.au A CAPEL Sound WWII navy veteran had his 12 service medals stolen the day before Anzac Day. Ron Bergman, 89, couldn’t believe it when he discovered his seven Australian service medals and replicas of his five US service medals had been taken from his Ronlyn St home. Detective Senior Constable Alex Montgomery, of Somerville CIU, said let themselves in through an unlocked front door on Monday 24 April. They stole replicas of his US medals from a bedroom and his Australian medals from a display cabinet he was making in his carport. “The shock didn’t set in until later,� Mr Bergman said. “It’s very upsetting because I’ve lost a lot of pals who died during that time and I have such fond memories of them.� Mr Bergman was attracted to the navy as a schoolboy in Noble Park and, in 1939 aged 13, he passed an entrance exam to officer training as one of only 13 chosen from a field of 800. He remembers taking a letter from the navy home to his mother saying it would cost them five shillings each week for his board – while his stepfather was only bringing home only one pound eight shillings. Times were tough, but the money was found somewhere. Mr Bergman trained at the Flinders Naval Depot (now HMAS Cerberus), Crib Point and joined the merchant navy in 1944 aged 17. After being sent to Darwin he saw action against the Japanese and served on four Australian ships. He then transferred to the US merchant marine of which he has fond memories – especially receiving $100 a month in pay – and recently received a certificate of appreciation from the US. Mr Bergman believes the thieves will sell medals for money to buy drugs. He has replicas of the stolen Australian medals and the thieves missed out on finding the authentic US medals. “It would be a good thing for these young thieves to see what life was like then,� he said. “I used to send home half my pay and that helped educate my younger brother and sister.� Mr Bergman “didn’t say anything� about the stolen war medals when he attended Anzac Day at Rye RSL on Tuesday 25 April. His mates will have the chance to discuss the sorry affair at a party to celebrate his 90th birthday on Friday 9 June. Detective Montgomery said anyone with information should call him at the Somerville CIU, 5978 1300 or Crime Stoppers 1800 333 000.

Book handover ROSEBUD Secondary College captains presented $500 of books to Rosebud Primary School pupils on Monday last week. Assistant principal Adam Slater said the pupils were “over the moon” to receive the 40-odd books which will be read during their after-school-care programs. He said principal Stephen Fisher had bought the books from the Book Barn, Rosebud. School captains ran an extra raffle during their Easter fundraising with money raised going to buy the books.

Rays killed despite anti-cruelty laws Keith Platt keith@mpnews.com.au DIVERS are continuing to uncover acts of cruelty to fish caught from piers in Port Phillip and Western Port. The killing of a “resident” smooth ray on Rye pier on 2 April resulted in a 25,000-signature online petition calling for a ban on the killing of rays in Port Phillip, including stingrays and banjo sharks. The CEO of peak Victorian recreational fishing body VRFish, Michael Burgess, says his organisation “encourages all fishers to return unwanted rays to the water unharmed and comply with fishing regulations”. “We all need to work together to stamp out this unacceptable and illegal behaviour. Rays play an important role in maintaining healthy marine ecosystems and are like the vacuum cleaners of the ocean floor.” Images of the mutilated ray taken by scuba diver P T Hirschfield were reproduced by electronic and printed media, prompting outrage and highlighting the need for protection (“Cruel end for ‘puppies’ of the sea” The News 18/4/17). Despite the reaction Ms Hirschfield was shocked to hear another five dead fiddler rays – commonly known as banjo sharks – had been found under Rye pier on Wednesday 3 May. Each one appeared to have been killed by “a cranial split”, Ms Hirschfield said. She categorises the fish as “unwanted catch”, which are killed to prevent them from “wasting bait”.

Reason for ban: Dead banjo sharks found under Rye pier on Wednesday 3 May are thought by Prtoject Banjo Action Group organiser P T Hirschfield, above, to have been “unwanted catch” and killed before being thrown back into the sea.

“At least one of the animals was still alive after sustaining this injury, as caught on disturbing video by local scuba diving instructor Jane Bowman,” Ms Hirschfield said. “It is an offence against Fisheries Victoria 2009, Regulation 101 to not return fish to water without injury or damage. “Divers who entered the water the following morning to euthanise the animal found it already dead, along with a fifth banjo that had been knifed in the head.” Ms Hirschfield, an organiser of the Melbourne-based Project Banjo Action Group, said the “slaughter of

these rays was particularly brutal … but not an isolated event”. Representatives of the group have met with Fisheries Victoria executive director Travis Dowling and director of education and enforcement Ian Parks to discuss having signs on piers telling anglers fish protection laws, fines and “potential regulatory reforms”. “Testimonials and photographic evidence within the 700 strong ray advocacy group are evidence that banjos have been slaughtered as unwanted catch regularly for many years across the piers of Port Phillip and Western Port, including but not limited to Portsea, Blairgowrie, Rye and Flinders.

“This goes beyond the illegal slaughter of unwanted catch. Often it’s a matter of animal cruelty. Increasingly we’re finding rays that are thrown back in the water, cut in half, mutilated and maimed but still alive.” Injuries sustained by the rays included having their mouths torn out to retrieve fishing hooks. “Last week one diver filmed a ray that had been paralysed by a knife wound, then thrown back alive. Three days later another diver filmed the same ray still alive and had to put it out of its misery.” Ms Hirschfield said it was not uncommon for divers to see between four

and six dead rays at the fishing end of the piers, with one diver reporting 18 dead rays as well as a less common eagle ray. She said the killing of rays in Hamelin Bay, Western Australia, was banned in 2015 “when a public outcry erupted after a much-loved resident smooth ray was killed before horrified onlookers”. Mr Burgess, of VRFish said illegal fishing activities, including the deliberate harming of non-target species such as rays, toadfish and native sea stars, should be reported to Fisheries Victoria on 13 3474 (13FISH).

Thieves use stolen trailer to haul loot BURGLARS used a Tootgarook family’s trailer to steal a range of household and sporting items after first turning off the power and immobilising the house’s alarm, possibly Sunday night, 30 April. The thefts at the Plain St property were not discovered for a few days as the family was away. Detective Senior Constable Alex Montgomery, of Somerville CIU, said it appeared the thieves waited days before the alarm was run down allowing them to break in undetected. The loaded the trailer, registration X36917, with a ride-on mower, 125cc quad bike, women’s Giant mountain bike, and a large amount of fishing, boating, gardening and camping equipment. Detective Montgomery said a witness saw a late model dark coloured four-wheel-drive Hilux or Navarra utility parked outside at 10.30pm on

the Sunday. The offenders were not sighted. Anyone with information is urged to call Crime Stoppers 1800 333 000.

Bone not human

The crew in the Mornington divisional van attempted to intercept the Subaru Outback wagon as it drove into a dead end at Craigie Rd property but it turned and rammed into their front bumper before driving off on the main road. Police gave up the chase as it was deemed “too dangerous” to follow the male driver.

A LARGE bone, initially thought to “possibly be human remains” after being washed up at Rye front beach, turned out to from a large squid. Police were called when the fleshy bone – thought to be a human thigh bone – was noticed by walkers, 8am, Friday 5 May. A coroner’s court analysis found it to be from a cephalopod, such as a large octopus or squid.

Drive off after ram A STATION wagon was deliberately driven into a police van which followed it onto a Mornington rural property, 3am, Monday 8 May.

‘Over the limit’ A DROMANA woman blew 0.173 per cent after a crash at Safety Beach last week. Emergency services were called to Dromana Parade, 11.45pm, Sunday 7 May, after reports that a car had crashed into a parked car. Dromana police spoke to the woman, 35, and checked that her 11-year-old son was all right. After a preliminary breath test she was taken to the police station where she returned the high reading. Senior Constable Adam West said her licence was suspended and she is expected to be charged on summons with drink driving and other traffic offences.

Woman punched A WOMAN alone in her Mornington backyard was punched by a former partner who visited unexpectedly, 11.45am, Wednesday 3 May. The woman, 37, told police she ran inside where the man attempted to strike her again before demanding she drop an intervention order she has out against him.

Reward for ‘cold case’ hit-run tip POLICE are offering a $250,000 reward for information leading to the apprehension and conviction of the person involved in the hit-and-run death of Frankston woman Jennifer Moller outside Karingal Bowling Club five years ago. Ms Moller was waiting to cross Skye Rd, Frankston, 1.30pm, on 27 April 2012, when she was struck by a car, believed to be a 2011 white Mercedes Benz sedan. The 54-year-old was treated at the scene by paramedics but later died. The driver fled the scene. Detectives believe the reward will entice someone with key information to come forward. Husband John Moller, 53, said: “It’s been five years and we still have no closure. “I was there, I saw my wife get hit by the car, and 30 minutes later they told me she had died; it was traumatic. “The same day I had to get my children from school and tell them what had happened. They have been through so much. “Please, if you know anything, report it to Crime Stoppers.” Major Collision Investigation Unit Detective Sergeant Daryll Out said a conviction would provide some longneeded closure to the heartbroken family. “The day Jennifer lost her life, her children lost their mother and her hus-

Jennifer Moller

band lost his wife. Nothing will ever mend the broken hearts of Jennifer’s family, or sadly bring her back, but to have someone held to account will help to bring some much-deserved closure for them. “At the time, a number of witnesses came forward which helped locate the Mercedes and identified a person of interest but police need more information which may lead to the arrest and conviction of the driver involved.” Anyone with information about the collision should contact Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000 or via crimestoppersvic.com.au online.

Morning tea with magic MORE than 40 Mornington Peninsula business women got together on Thursday 11 May for the Australia’s Biggest Morning Tea event in Dromana’s Green Room, raising $3236 for the Cancer Council. Magician Cath Jamison entertained while auction items included manicures, massages and food. Held by the Mornington Peninsula Business Women Facebook Group,

the annual event was part of a national campaign to recognise how the Cancer Council saves lives through prevention, and offers counselling and support services. “The day is as much about supporting each other in our community as it is about supporting the Cancer Council. We were thrilled to be coming together as peninsula women to support this great cause, and thank the

Cancer Council for all the wonderful work it does in our community in so many ways,” one of the organisers Jo Violeta said. “It doesn’t matter if you are a successful business woman, juggling part time work or starting out in your own business – if you are touched by cancer you need all the help you can get”.

Southern Peninsula News 16 May 2017


Have a say on shire alcohol policy Stephen Taylor steve@mpnews.com.au THE need for a considered and comprehensive approach to alcohol management is underscored by statistics showing Mornington Peninsula residents are more at risk than elsewhere in the state. The draft management plan states that the lifetime risk of alcohol-related harm impacts shire residents at a higher rate than in the southern metropolitan region and Victoria as a whole. The shire has more alcohol-related road accidents, more ambulance call-outs to alcohol-related incidents, more hospital emergency department presentations and more hospital admissions as a result of alcohol than other areas. “While alcohol consumption is widely recognised as a legitimate social activity, alcohol-related harm is a significant public health issue which currently impacts Mornington Peninsula Shire residents at a higher rate than that of Victoria,” the shire’s current alcohol policy states. Examples of the shire’s role in controlling, managing and limiting the consumption of alcohol include bans on drinking in public places on New Year’s Eve, as well as in streets near The Pillars rock jumping area at Mt Martha, and before and after council meetings. Peninsula residents can comment on the shire’s Draft Alcohol Management Policy 2017 until Monday 19 June. The policy’s aim is to enhance the safety, amenity, and health and wellbeing of those living and working in the shire by raising awareness of the social problems caused by drinking, as well as managing alcohol consumption. The VicHealth Alcohol Cultures Framework

says it is “imperative to address shifting and varied drinking cultures in order to reduce alcoholrelated harm”. “This can be achieved through a multifaceted approach which aims to create supportive environments where alcohol is consumed at low risk levels and high risk consumption is discouraged.” The mayor Cr Bev Colomb said the draft policy “reflects council’s commitment to collaborating with our partners, particularly Victoria Police and local health services”. “While the shire acknowledges alcohol consumption is widely recognised as a social activity, alcohol-related harm is a significant public health issue currently impacting residents,” she said. “With increasing knowledge about how this issue affects the local community, it is our responsibility to take a planned and proactive approach to alcohol management.” The policy applies to all types of council decision-making on liquor matters, including retailers, nightclubs, bars and restaurants, and council’s sporting, recreational and community facilities or public spaces. The “three pillars” underpinning the harm-minimisation approach are demand reduction, supply reduction and harm reduction strategies, which includes delaying access to alcohol, preventing its misuse and supply, and reducing adverse health impacts., among a raft of other considerations. “All levels of government and relevant organisations and stakeholders have a long-standing commitment to working in partnership to implement measures to minimise the misuse of and harms associated with alcohol consumption and build a responsible licensing system across the state,” the draft policy states.

Anger over stadium news black-out Stephen Taylor steve@mpnews.com.au WESTERN Port Basketball Association members were scheduled to meet on Saturday to protest at the lack of action and transparency in the rebuilding of the Somerville stadium which burnt down 12 months ago. Association officials say they have heard “rumours” but had no official word from Mornington Peninsula Shire Council about when a new stadium will be built to cater for their 1300 members. Basketball operations manager Tyler Molloy said the association received “many phone calls daily” from members asking for updates. “We can’t give them anything because we haven’t been told anything,” he said. “Even an email now and again [from the shire] to keep us in the loop would be helpful.” In a letter to members last week, Mr Molloy said the “devastating impact the loss of the stadium has had on our basketball family and greater community is still an ongoing battle a year later”. “[We’ve had] no committed answer from the shire on a construction start date for the new recreation centre,” he said. “Major questions keep being stalled at every meeting or organised meetings with WPBA officials being put off. “It’s not good enough to be hearing rumours for over a year from the shire

Burnt-out shell: Western Port Basketball Association members are still in the dark about their new base. Picture: Gary Sissons

and rumours about our club in the basketball community. “Action now needs to be clear and happen now.” Despite the setback, Mr Molloy said

the growth of basketball over the past year has been “huge, with WPBA gaining team numbers after this tragic incident”. “We expect this to continue moving

forward given that … all WNBL and NBL games are live on Fox sports next year. “We have nothing to help us grow in the area, we need to be heard and prop-

erly be accommodated. “A part of being heard is that we are asking for as many junior players as possible to be at the Somerville Recreation Centre, 10am, Saturday 13 May, to take part in a club photo outside of our abandoned stadium. All players are to bring a ball and be in full uniform.” Players are being taken to 17 replacement courts as far apart as Langwarrin, Mt Eliza and Bittern. The shire’s chief operating officer Alison Leighton said on Friday – after learning of Saturday’s public meeting – that “plans for rebuilding the Somerville Recreation and Community Centre continue with tenders for design and construction being advertised shortly”. “While ground breaking for the new facility will not start until later this year, a great deal of the background preparation work has continued in earnest,” Ms Leighton said. She said a consultant team had been appointed to coordinate the layout for the building that included extra courts. “The shire plans to seek additional funding for the redevelopment from the state government which, if successful, would allow for two additional basketball courts on the site.” It is still not known if the council’s insurer will help pay for a new stadium. Ms Leighton says “negotiations continue … to reach an agreement [with the insurer] … that will ensure that the new facility achieves a high standard”.

We are dedicated to the belief that a strong community newspaper is essential to a strong community. We exist to serve residents, community groups and businesses and ask for their support in return.

Banks back community groups ABOUT $200,000 in funding was awarded to 51 community groups last week thanks to the Rye, Rosebud and Dromana Community Bank branches of the Bendigo Bank. The funding awards night was held in the Tootgarook Primary School’s community building, which was built with $300,000 provided by the branches over the past decade. Red Hill District Lions Club, Dromana Fire Brigade and Rosebud Junior Football Club received funding on the night. Senior branch manager Gary Sanford said they, and the Tootgarook building, were great examples of how the local community can “enjoy the fruits of their branches’ success”. “It’s thanks to our customers that we are able to generate the profits to go back into local initiatives like these”, Mr Sanford said. “Every year we inject more than

Frankston ‘all at sea’ on port for Hastings Neil Walker neil@mpnews.com.au AN abrupt about turn by Frankston councillors withdrawing support for a container port at Hastings has plunged council into troubled waters. The Frankston and Mornington Peninsula Shire councils previously officially supported the establishment of a port at Hastings by a state government potentially decades from now. A second container port to service the Melbourne area will be needed when the Port of Melbourne reaches capacity. Councillors at the 1 May Frankston council meeting voted to oppose the establishment of a port at Hastings after Cr Quinn McCormack urged fellow elected representatives to oppose any dredging or deepening in the Ramsar-listed Western Port Bay to protect marine life, seagrass and tourism business. A 6-2 vote by councillors saw Frankston Council’s previous official policy stance, reiterated at April’s public meeting, support a port at Hastings instead of an alternative proposal to build a second container port servicing Melbourne at Geelong’s Bay West. Councillors at the April meeting voted 5-4 to support a port at Hastings. “Western Port supports thousands of species of marine animals including colonies of penguins

and Australian fur seals,” Cr McCormack said. Oil spills and ship groundings due to “navigational errors” were also flagged by Cr McCormack as dangers to Western Port Bay’s “marine ecosystem”. She noted there would be 47 million cubic metres dredged at Western Port Bay, “more than double what happened in Port Phillip Bay”. “Portsea beach is now sandbagged as a result of the dredging of Port Phillip Bay,” Cr McCormack said. Crs Glenn Aitken, Kris Bolam, McCormack, Sandra Mayer, Lillian O’Connor and Steve Toms voted last week to oppose a port at Hastings. The mayor Cr Brian Cunial and Cr Michael O’Reilly supported the port. Cr Colin Hampton, who was absent from last week’s meeting, voted in support of the port in April. Crs Kris Bolam and Sandra Mayer changed their view on the port at Hastings between April and May’s vote. The pair backed a Hastings port in April then decided to oppose it weeks later. The matter will be debated again by Frankston councillors for a third time in as many months at June’s public council meeting. State Frankston Labor MP Paul Edbrooke said council’s “flip-flop” on the port is “yet another example of Frankston Council wasting ratepayers’ money on their own personal political agendas and not consulting the Frankston community.”

The moon by Anthony Nightingale

Students out for the night BENTON Junior College students, parents and teachers viewed the moon, Jupiter and nebulae last week during a visit by members of Mornington Peninsula Astronomical Society. Telescopes on the school grounds allowed the year 5 students to clearly see objects at night, the society’s Tony Nightingale said. The viewing was followed by a talk on the solar system. The astronomical society held a public viewing night and talk at The Briars last week attended by 100 members of the public. “Later, visitors queued up at the observatory to view Jupiter’s great red spot, the rings of Saturn, the Orion Nebula, star clusters, the Eta Carina Nebula and the first quarter moon,” member Mr

Nightingale said. “The weather was mild so many stayed until midnight, making it a late night for members attending a Victoria Astronomy Convention biennial conference for amateur astronomers from around Victoria at Emerald the next day.” The conference, hosted by Mount Burnett Observatory, covered gravitational waves, astronomy for beginners, astrophotography, keeping our skies dark, and astronomy outreach. The next conference will be in 2019, with suggested topics being the 50th anniversary of the first moon landing by Apollo 11 on 20 July 1969, and the celebration of the 50th anniversary of the Mornington Peninsula Astronomical Society.

Expressions of interest: Yaringa Harbour and Marina is for sale with its redevelopment plans approved. Picture: Gary Sissons

Flags up for harbour sale YARINGA Boat Harbour owner Stefan Borzecki has put the Western Port marina on the market six months after receiving state government approval for a proposed $95 million redevelopment. Selling agent Duncan McCulloch, of CBRE, has reportedly received of inquiries from local and overseas developers for the site near Somerville which he values at around $15 million. An expressions-of-interest campaign closes 3pm, Tuesday 6 June. Planning approval was received in November

for the 24.6 hectare site, including an inland waterway lined with 180 apartments with their own berths and promenades similar to Mt Martha Cove at Safety Beach, conference centre, and restaurant. The marina’s existing boat storage, repair facilities and slipway leading to the bay channel will also be upgraded. Environmental concerns about the development’s effect on native wildlife added to delays in the project’s approval. Stephen Taylor

Mid-year date for Wyuna’s crossing Keith Platt keith@mpnews.com.au MID-YEAR is the latest sailing date set for the Western Port Oberon Association’s MV Wyuna to leave Tasmania for Melbourne. The 64 metre cutter was given to the association in 2013 and plans were made to have it join the submarine Otama as part of a maritime museum in Western Port. However, both vessels remain tied up in red tape and anchored offshore – the submarine at Crib Point and the Wyuna at Launceston. Otama association president Max Bryant last week was confident the project would receive a “kick start� once the Wyuna arrives in Melbourne. He said it would take six weeks to ready the Wyuna to cross Bass Strait, with a stop scheduled at Mornington before heading to Docklands. “It has to be out of [its anchorage in the Tamar River] by September because of rough weather at that time of year,� Mr Bryant said. Both the Otama and Wyuna have had problems at their respective anchorages. In June 2016 the Otama was secured when the state government stepped in to pay for repairs to its moorings. The vessel’s future and that of the 15-year plan to make it the centrepiece of a maritime museum were jeopardised by the association’s lack of money. With the Otama safely at anchor

Sea tails: Members of the Victorian branch of the World Ship Society visit the Victorian Maritime Centre’s museum at Crib Point. The members of Western Port Oberon Association provided a hot roast lunch and the visitors were shown a 25-minute film covering the history of the project, which includes the Otama submarine and former pilot boat the MV Wyuna. Association president also spoke about the project Max Bryant, followed Dave Hoare, who related his experiences while serving on HMAS Otama.

the association was free to again concentrate, still unsuccessfully, on raising the millions of dollars needed to establish the maritime museum and carry out work to sail the Wyuna across Bass Strait. In January the Tasmanian Director

of Public Prosecutions office threatened to apply to the Supreme Court to “seize and dispose of the Wyuna�. “I acknowledge that such an outcome would be undesirable for the association. I am instructed that the authority, given the effluxion of time

and its duty to maintain marine safety, has few if any other options available to it,� crown counsel Sam Thompson stated in a letter to the association’s lawyers, McGuiness & Hosking, Rosebud. Mr Thompson said the “current situ-

ation is untenableâ€? and said a 60-day notice to made the Wyuna seaworthy had been issued on October 21 2015. “The period within which the association had to comply ended on 21 April 2016. Since then, and notwithstanding the correspondence between us, the situation relating to the Wyuna has not been rectified to the satisfaction of the authority.â€? Mr Bryant said last week that the Wyuna remained in the Tamar but that plans for getting her to Melbourne “are slowly going aheadâ€?. “It’s been a battle – all political – but it’s going to happen. “The boat will stop in Mornington before sailing up to Station Pier and I am in discussions with Docklands about a berth.â€? The Wyuna, a former pilot cutter, was built in 1953 and donated to the association in 2013 for display at the Victorian Maritime Centre/Museum currently at Crib Point. Hastings MP, Liberal Neale Burgess, promised $1 million to the Otama project during the November 2014 election campaign, but Labor’s win has put plan on the backburner. “We had confirmation of the grant and that the money would remain, but it seems to have disappeared,â€? Mr Bryant told The News in February 2015. “Who knows what happens? People play games‌â€? In June last year Mr Bryant put the cost of the maritime museum at $15 million and said that if either the state or federal governments provide $2 million “seed fundingâ€? private investors would become involved.

Council on course with port back flip decision Frankston Council is to be commended for its reversal of its previous stance for the Port of Hastings development. To do otherwise it would go down in history as the biggest bunch of hypocrites in Australian local government history. Along with their hypocrite bedfellows at Mornington Peninsula Shire they are on public record at the Port of Melbourne privatisation inquiry as being opposed to any further dredging in Port Phillip, but happy to see 24 million cubic meters (minimum) pulled out of Western Port and, in the process, wreck one of the most environmentally sensitive waterways in Australia. Frankston’s submission started off with a pledge to “do no harm�. You also have to love the fact that Mornington Peninsula Shire participated in three recent Western Port environmental studies which all basically say “leave it alone�. Yet on the economic front the shire is quite happy to ignore this for the sake of a few automated container port jobs. Don’t staff in these respective areas talk to each other? Whatever jobs would come out of the container port would probably be surmounted by those lost in the $300 million a year tourism industry on the eastern side of peninsula. Tourists like wildlife and beaches, not container ships. As for [Liberal leader] Matthew Guy sounding off about jobs, 5000 or one third of all jobs in Bass Coast depend on the $600 million tourism industry, plus another $700 million in recreational fishing in the bay. So there’s $1.3 billion a year at risk if he gets his way and builds the container port. The previous Liberal government spent $30m of our money on the Port of Hastings Development Authority trying to prove the opposite to the “leave it alone�. To murder a metaphor: “you can’t have your Port and drink it too�. Kevin Chambers, The Gurdies

History ignored As was the case with the Hastings Club, Mornington Peninsula Council has failed to take into account the history of Devilbend Golf Club in suggesting it be only given a five-year extension of its lease and consideration of offering control of the club to another entity after review (“Golf club in rough over lease� The News 24/4/17). The land on which the golf course stands was subject of a “grant of land� by Lysaghts [steelworks] in the 1970s as compensation to the state for exclusive right of access to the coastal strip where its wharf was constructed. Construction of the golf course was undertaken voluntarily by local farmers, earthmoving contractors and Lysaght staff accessing resources available to them. The Shire of Hastings was only called on to support their efforts when needed. In a news report on opening day in 1974 it was highlighted that the club members had “transformed a cow paddock� into a magnificent golf

course. Ignoring that in the report which was presented to council is a disgrace and highlights a warning to other sporting club’s to be wary of the outcome of decisions made by the shire’s property department when their lease is due for renewal. The Hastings Club and Devilbend Golf Club have earned the right, through their initiative and immense voluntary contribution to the community, to be treated with far more respect than that being shown by Mornington Peninsula Shire at present. Brian L Stahl, Hastings

Time to tidy quarry It’s great to see that VCAT sometimes can get it right (“VCAT ‘non’ to quarry permit� The News 9/5/17). Hopefully the Ross Trust/Hillview Quarries will now desist from turning this piece of land into a rubbish tip or have further quarrying happen there. The site should now be made safe and added to the Arthurs Seat State Park, which would be in keeping with the Ross Trust’s environmental charter. Let us all hope this affair will not become another lawyers breakfast. Rupert Steiner, Balnarring Beach

Sign up Mornington Mornington town centre is not currently sign posted from Peninsula Link and therefore many people coming from Melbourne and beyond are now bypassing Mornington. This is very bad news for shops in Mornington as fewer visitors might even threaten the sustainability of some businesses. What can be done to make VicRoads erect suitable signs at Bungower and Mornington-Tyabb roads, advising motorists that those turnoffs are the ones to take for Mornington town centre? Jonty Reason, Mornington

Missing in budget I would like to share my state budget analysis with your readers; $0 for the Mornington Peninsula. With a 20 per cent increase in taxes the Andrews Labor Government has not provided one dollar for education, health, roads, public transport or public housing. This, despite me repeatedly raising these issues in parliament and directly to ministers over the past two years. We residents have paid our increased state taxes; we deserve a share of our taxes returned. Taxpayer funds belong to all of us, but Labor uses them as their own campaign slush fund. Martin Dixon [Liberal] MP for Dromana

Keeping tabs It would appear that Brian Michelson (“Moored at Mornington� Letters 18/4/17 ) is somewhat astray with his memory as to what he has said

No-go zone: A temporary fence keeps visitors off the scallop wharf. Picture: Keith Platt

Pier takes a dip on the side THE scallop wharf at the start of Mornington pier has been fenced off after it began sagging. Divers inspected 19 piles supporting the deck and confirmed they were “near the end of their practical life span and that their condition had deteriorated�. “Parks Victoria is in the process of engaging contractors to replace the piles,� Parks Victoria regional director for Melbourne marine and

maritime, Jo Richards said. “These works will involve lifting the current decking, extracting the old piles, installing new piles and reinstating the deck.� The wharf repairs are expected to be completed by the end of winter, but Parks says this is subject to weather conditions and availability of contractors.

and done. Now he claims to be the hero of the local yachting fraternity, and claims never to have expressed dislike of sailors, verbally, in writing or by implication. I remind him of his published proclamation in (“Pull the boats out “ Letters 4/4/17) relating to his suggestion to eliminate a harbour at Mornington. Mr Michelson also writes that he has never heard of Edmund Burke. It is wise to keep some record, written or otherwise, as to what we have done, in order to know just what we have done. Edmund Burke, Mornington

in the world. This means that the CFA needs to maintain a capability to quickly deliver a large number of skilled resources to combat large fires across the State. Much of this CFA volunteer “surge capacity� comes from CFA’s outer metropolitan Melbourne brigades, so it is vitally important to maintain well-trained CFA resources, both volunteer and paid, in these areas to protect Victoria. In addition to thanking our volunteers, we should also thank the families and employers who support them in doing their work. Their support is greatly appreciated. CFA volunteering is about much more than firefighting – it’s an important part of our social fabric. It is about community spirit and resilience. CFA volunteers can be relied upon to give tirelessly when others need it the most. Eric Collier, District 8 President, Volunteer Fire Brigades Victoria

Thanks to fireys As we celebrate National Volunteer Week (8-14 May), we should take this opportunity to thank the dedicated Country Fire Authority volunteers that protect our communities on a 24/7 basis. The CFA’s 60,000 skilled volunteers comprise around 96 per cent of Victoria’s firefighting capability, and come from all walks of life. CFA volunteers are highly trained to nationally recognised standards to enable them to deal with a wide range of fires and incidents, including house fires, factory fires, road accidents, chemical spills, and bushfires. CFA Coast Guard brigades deal with fires at sea. CFA District 8, covering from Edithvale to Bunyip, then to Wonthaggi and Sorrento, has around 3000 CFA volunteers in 72 CFA and Coast Guard brigades. On the Mornington Peninsula, we have around 19 fully volunteer CFA brigades, and two “integrated� CFA brigades where volunteer and paid firefighters work together seamlessly to protect the community. Overall, they respond to thousands of incidents per year. While last summer was relatively quiet, Victoria is one of the most fire prone areas

Anzac regrets I am a bit sad that all RSLs were not mentioned in your article about Anzac Day (“Wind, rain but Anzac crowds shine� The News 1/5/17). We had a record crowd attend in the rain at our dawn service and also our breakfast, march and service at the cenotaph. The service at the cenotaph also included students from Dromana College who sang “In Flanders fields� and were then joined pupils from Dromana Primary School for the national anthem and “We are Australian�. Our speaker from HMAS Cerberus was great. Our march was led by World War II diggers in an old car and members of the public attended in their hundreds. It’s a shame we and Sorrento Portsea RSL were not mentioned in your article. Pam Rowler, secretary Dromana Red Hill RSL

Sporting chance centres ‘on market’ Continued from Page 1 PARC CEO Tim Gledhill also did not answer several questions about Peninsula Leisure’s finances and did not respond to questions about negotiations with the shire to operate peninsula sports centres. “Peninsula Leisure Pty Ltd is a subsidiary company of Frankston Council with an independent board and management, with specialist expertise, established to operate within the increasingly competitive health, recreation and leisure sectors,” Mr Gledhill said in a statement. “Peninsula Leisure has proved to be an industry leader delivering exceptional customer experiences through its management of PARC, which was awarded Facility of the Year at the Aquatic and Recreation Victoria Awards in 2016. “With close to 10,000 members and over 850,000 visitations a year, Peninsula Leisure continues to focus on building the value PARC provides to the community.” The directors of Peninsula Leisure are -chair Roseanne Healy who is also a director on many South Australia company boards; remuneration and reward committee chair Barbara Crook; strategy and marketing committee chair David Shilbury; audit and risk committee chair Simon Allatson and Phillip Johnson who is also chief financial officer of South East Water. Both Mr Hovenden and Mr Gledhill did not

answer questions about any remuneration and rewards paid to Peninsula Leisure directors. Shire chief financial officer Matt Green confirmed “a request for proposal process” for the four sports centres took place last year. “The process does not indicate council had made a decision to outsource services, rather it was to gain a clearer understanding of other operators in the field,” Mr Green said in a statement. “Having tested the market, and shared these findings with council, the shire continues to review various options to ensure the best outcome for the community. “Access to health and fitness opportunities remains a priority, and council is focused on ensuring the best value-for-money services are offered to our community.” Mr Green said the review “included staff, facility members, user groups and discussions with other local government facilities’ management teams”. Questions about shire council officers recommending a commercial manager be appointed to take over the running of Devilbend Golf Course in Moorooduc were not answered by Mr Green. Park Leisure board member David Shilbury sits on Golf Victoria’s board. It is not known if Peninsula Leisure has expressed any interest in running the golf course.

Shire’s ‘thank you’

TRIPLE A Housing Committee founding member Jean Phillips has received a letter under seal from Mornington Peninsula Shire acknowledging her retirement and service to the community. Ms Phillips joined the committee in 2002. The committee is an advisory group to the shire and includes councillor and community representatives. It helps oversee implementation of the Triple A housing policy and related policies, such as social and affordable housing, rooming houses, older persons’ housing and guidelines and homelessness and caravan park report. The mayor Cr Bev Colomb said the committee’s achievements included raising awareness and funds during Homelessness Week and successfully advocating for additional social housing on the peninsula,. “I would like to congratulate Jean on this outstanding achievement. Your admirable effort to our community and the peninsula won’t be forgotten,” Cr Colomb said.

Wellness pavilion THE Rotary club of Rosebud-Rye has donated $50,000 as seed funding for a wellness pavilion at Rosebud Secondary College.

Services on show DISABILITY services organisation Karingal held an open day at the Peninsula Community Theatre, Mornington, Wednesday 3 May. The organisation provides services for people with a disability or mental illness as well as older people. The day was an opportunity to learn more about what Karingal offers in the southern Melbourne region. Attendees joined in arts and crafts, gardening, jewellery making, music and dance, drama, and cooking. There were also stalls providing information on the National Disability Insurance Scheme, as well as details of accredited training courses available through Karingal Training. Karingal southern region manager Sonia Berton said the event was a “great chance for Karingal to showcase its range of programs – from disability to education”. “It was really an opportunity for people who might not be aware of all the services we offer to come along and have a chat, and learn more about Karingal,” she said. “The day provided students with disabilities the chance to consider a range of programs and activities as post school options through Karingal Training.

Dromana College: Leaping from strength to strength. THE Dromana College Learning Enhancement and Acceleration Program (LEAP) continues to go from strength to strength. LEAP caters for high achieving, gifted and talented students who are grouped together in an engaging, challenging and supportive learning program. We are now in the fourth year of this outstanding program and our LEAP students continue to thrive within this high expectation environment where students learn from and with other high achieving students. LEAP is staffed by a dedicated team of teachers who ensure that all students are encouraged and supported to achieve their personal best and where engaging curriculum is delivered to maximise student interest and achievement. Our LEAP teaching team work closely to ensure that the curriculum and pastoral needs of all LEAP students are met and guaranteeing that the LEAP curriculum is differentiated to meet the needs of these high achieving students. Our LEAP students are closely monitored and tracked to ensure that pathways opportunities are maximised. Our current Year 9 and 10 LEAP students are accessing a range of VCE options which will help them to maximise their ATAR and they work closely with senior students and classes

whilst still in middle school. LEAP classes also have access to a range of university experiences to ensure that they are fully aware of available tertiary pathways. Language learning is a prime focus of our LEAP classes and there has been a high retention of LEAP students into our senior Indonesian and Japanese language classes. LEAP students also undertake the study of Philosophy, which is not available to other students. Of course, literacy and numeracy continue to underpin the program, as the essential foundations for all learning. Although LEAP students work closely as a team, we ensure that students are integrated and included within their wider year level cohort. The students undertake many activities and excursions with peers from other classes including camps, pastoral activities and sports, sharing the same space in our dedicated Year 7 area of the college, so that wider social interactions are fostered. Grade 6 students are invited and encouraged to apply for a place in the Dromana College LEAP Program.

100 YEARS AGO THIS WEEK...

Private Donohue has his teeth removed before he heads to the Front Compiled by Cameron McCullough ECHOES from the Front. WHERE ARE THE BOYS WE KNOW ! Private Dick Donohue, in a recent letter, writes :– A few lines to tell you I arrived here safe and sound after nine weeks on the water. It is pretty cold here just now, some of the people told me it is the coldest for 30 years, so that is alright for us. I am at a place called near Salisbury Plain. We are getting four day’s final leave next week. We get it just before we go to the front, so by the time you get this letter I will be well at the front, but I hope it won’t be long before I am back at Frankston again. Jimmy Dent is just near me and a few other local boys. I have a nice mouth tonight, as have had my teeth out. Am also “on guard” and it is my time to go on. It is not very nice leaving a warm fire to go out into the frost, but it can’t be helped. Private Will Hanton writes to Mr C. Woods :– Just a few lines to let you know I am still going strong. Am leaving for my furlough on Friday (14 days) so will have a good look round London. Have been in hospital at Brighton and after furlough I have to go to Warsham. Remember me to all. *** CORRESPONDENCE re “Foreshore Privileges,” Soldiers’ Letters, and other interesting matter are held over unavoidably till our next issue. *** WE regret to report the condition

of Mrs Barnett senr. is causing her friends grave anxiety. *** OWING to unforseen circumstances, the Australian Club dance that was to be held on 24th inst, is postponed till early in June. *** MESSRS Adamson, Strettle and Co. have a good yarding for their sale at Tanti Yards on Monday next, including cattle, sheep and pigs. *** MESSRS Brody and Mason will hold their usual fortnightly sale at Somerville, on Wednesday next, commencing at 2 o’clock sharp. *** IN the 298th casualty list the following names appear:– Pte. A. H. Davies, Mornington, killed ; Corp. J. H. Moir, Langwarrin, missing; Pte. J. Brown, Stony Point, missing and wounded. *** TENDERS will be received up to Monday next by the Defence Department for the supply of meat, vegetables and milk for the month of June at various camps and hospitals as notified by advertisement in another column. *** A CONCERT will be held in the Langwarrin Recreation Hall on Saturday night 26th May, at 8pm in aid of the State School patriotic fund, proceeds to be devoted to the British Red Cross Fund. A first class programme will be provided including items by performers from the Langwarrin Military Camp. *** ANOTHER “ working bee “ is adver-

tised to take place at the Frankston Cemetery on Saturday, 26th inst. The appeal for aid towards improving the cemetery has met with a liberal response and a great improvement is noticeable in the appearance of the ground. Still further work is required, and the committee feel confident that the residents will still continue to render every assistance possible. *** MR C. P. Watson, manager of the Frankston Branch of the State Savings Bank, has received notice that he has been appointed manager of the Sale Branch of that institution. Since coming to Frankston, Mr Watson has taken considerable interest in the advancement of the town, and his services has always been willingly given in the way of promoting entertainments for the benefit of deserving objects. In his business capacity, he was always most kind and obliging, and we feel sure that the promotion has been well deserved. We congratulate him, and our best wishes go with him to his future sphere of labor for his continued success. *** KANANOOK Creek has, even in the memory of the oldest inhabitant, been a source of trouble to Frankston. The trouble has been accentuated by the drainage of Carrum Swamp and the diversion of the greater portion of the head waters into Pattersons River. Much public money has been spent in various ways to improve it but the

results have not been very remarkable hitherto. Last year great hopeswere raised by the appearance of a small suction dredge at the mouth of the creek and a commencement being made to dredge the bed to the depth of six feet. The dredge was withdrawn after a score or two of yards (more or less), up the creek had been excavated, and it was found on enquiry that the dredging was simply experimental. The mouth of Kananook Creek had merely been selected as the most conivenient place at which to ascertain if a dredge could be economically worked by an oil engine. Subsequently Mr. Catani, who has quite recently retired from the office of Engineer-in-chief, for Public Works, and Mr Kermode, Engineerin-charge of Ports and Harbors, visited Frankston and made a thorough inspection. They then submitted certain proposals, and it is to consider these proposals that a public meeting of ratepayers will be held in Frankston on Monday next, as announced in the advertisement in another column. It is to be hoped that every ratepayer having the interests of Frankston at heart will attend the meeting. *** LANCE-CORP. Fred Bray, son of Mr and Mrs E. Bray of Frankston, is to be congratulated on his being awarded a stripe. Lance-Corp. Bray who is not yet out of his “teens” will shortly be leaving for the front, where his future progress will be anxiously watched by a number of interested friends.

*** MR and Mrs C. Tait, of Frankston, celebrated their silver wedding this week. They received most hearty congratulations from their numerous friends, also some valuable presents. We trust our esteemed friends will be spared for many a long year to come and the good luck which has been theirs up to the present, will continue till the end. *** WE regret to have to record that Mrs Plowman, of “The Tofts”, Frankston, met with rather a serious accident on Thursday evening, through being run over by a buggy and pair of horses, just outside the local railway station. Though no bones were broken, she was severely bruised and shaken, and it will be some little time before she will be about again. *** EMPIRE Day will be celebrated at the Frankston State School on Thursday next, when a Jumble Fair will be held in aid of the British Red Cross Society. During the afternoon the school children will give displays of physical drill, graduated exercises, and salute the flag. The Langwarrin Band is expected to be present. Donations in money or kind will be gratefuly received. A meeting of parents and others interested will be held in the schoolroom on Monday evening to make final arrangements. *** From the pages of the Mornington Standard, 19 May 1917

THE MEANING OF EXISTENCE... AND OTHER SHORT STORIES

A (denim) shorts story By Stuart McCullough WHEN I think back, conflict has defined my life. It’s true of everyone, I suppose. We are inevitably shaped by the things we’ve fought against as much as we are the things we love. For me, childhood was about a lot of things, but mostly fear. By ‘fear’ I mean the fear of failure, the fear that I might not be allowed to watch new episodes of ‘The Fall Guy’ starring Lee Majors or the fear that a brother or sister would borrow one of my toys and never return it. Suffice to say that – to this day - I’m still awaiting the return of my miniature pool table. But of all the fears that informed my childhood, one loomed greater than any other. It overshadowed what ought to have been the most carefree days of my life, occupying my every waking hour and beyond. Even now, the thought of it makes me shudder involuntarily. As the days began to warm, I’d know talk would inevitably turn to swimming and, for me, swimming meant having to confront one of my all-time greatest dreads: overly revealing swimwear. Let me come right out and admit it - I am completely Speedo-phobic. I could never get over the fact that bathers looked exactly the same as underwear, but in a different fabric. Being somewhat shy, I would never have contemplated walking around in my underwear and I couldn’t fathom why different fabric and proximity to a body of water ought to make any difference. It assumed that inhibitions would be shed right along with the rest of your clothes. My inhibitions,

PAGE 40

however, could only ever be removed with either a crowbar or an exorcism. When the invitation to swim would come up, I’d loiter in the hope that I’d be too slow and be banned from the pool. A ban which, of course, would save me from having to reveal my pale, pale skin to the wider world after which mockery was nothing short of inevitable. It rarely worked. I know, I know – the human body is a beautiful thing and there’s no shame in parading around in a pair of budgie

Southern Peninsula News 16 May 2017

smugglers and the mere suggestion of discomfort when it comes to wearing the national swimming costume is probably grounds for deportation – but it’s an aversion that’s stayed with me right through to adulthood. In an ideal world, a bathing suit should be exactly that. I’m talking shirt, tie, jacket and cufflinks - the whole shebang. While I’m now in the glorious position of being able to choose my own bathers, the times now suit me.

It’s completely acceptable these days to cover up when you’re swimming, with shorts, hat and a rash vest. In fact, such conduct is even considered laudable. Back in the seventies, however, such attire would have been viewed the kind of extreme suspicion usually reserved for visitors from another planet. Refusing to expose as much flesh as possible to the sun was a sign that someone far more serious was wrong. Swimming could not be avoided. My pleas for a less revealing swimsuit were roundly ignored. So I did what any self-respecting person and, probably, MacGyver, could do. That is, I used the material around me to improvise some kind of a solution. As yet another summer loomed, I took matters, an old pair of jeans and a sharp pair of scissors into my hands. The pants had been earmarked for destruction. This was a rare event in our house as anything that remained even vaguely wearable once I was done with it was generally handed down to the next sibling in line. These jeans, however, were an exception. With a style best described as rudimentary, I hacked off the legs. Thus, I had created a pair of ‘cutaways’ for myself. Denim cutaway shorts are mercurial. Some people can wear them and they can look very good. Others, however, can wear them and it simply looks like a large dog has savaged your favourite pants and you are now wearing all that could be salvaged. If I’m being honest, my denim shorts fell into the latter category. We were on holidays in Queens-

land when I decided to debut my home-made swimming costume. As I dropped my towel poolside, I could hear a collective intake of breath. Back then, I thought people were dazzled by innovative approach to swimwear. Now I recognise it as pity. I dove in and instantly realised that, prior to turning my jeans into cutaways, I had always worn a belt. Now, belt-free, my denim shorts were a little on the loose side, creating a very real threat of exposure beyond that which a pair of Speedos might ever imagine. Worse was to come. I insisted on swimming in my cutaway denim shorts, even though it meant I had to use one hand to keep them from floating away when I swam. Over the course of the week, though, the shorts seemed to fit better. I don’t know if they shrank or if holiday feasting meant that I had expanded, I could now swim with both hands. But trouble soon returned when I attempted to get changed in our hotel room. The water, it seemed, had rusted the button and zip of the denim shorts. This meant that I was trapped and the only way to get me out of my bathing suit was to cut me out. I’m pretty sure that I remain the only person to be freed from their bathers by the Jaws of Life. I should have been embarrassed, but I wasn’t. I’ve always believed you’ve got to seize the moment. And by making my own bathers, that’s exactly what I did. Carpe denim. stuart@stuartmccullough.com

LENNON: THROUGH THE LOOKING GLASS Lennon: Through a Glass Onion is back in Australia following their sensational 16 week season in New York. The internationally acclaimed theatrical event celebrating the genius, music and phenomenon of John Lennon which we know and loved as LOOKING THROUGH A GLASS ONION was reproduced and rebranded for its Off-Broadway debut at the Union Square Theatre. Created and performed by renowned Australian actor/musician John Waters and esteemed singer/pianist Stewart D’Arrietta, Lennon: Through a Glass Onion, is partconcert, part-biography and features 31 iconic hits including Lennon solo works such as Imagine, Woman, Working Class Hero, and Jealous Guy and Lennon’s collaborations with Paul McCartney, including, Strawberry Fields Forever, Revolution, and, Lucy in the Sky with Diamonds. “It was truly an emotional experience seeing Lennon: Through a Glass Onion in New York at its American premiere” said producer Harley Medcalf. “We were overwhelmed, blessed really, to have the support of Yoko Ono and the Lennon Estate. As Charles Waterstreet (Fairfax) said, “We should get out the streamers and confetti to shower D’Arrietta and Waters in an open limousine to the steps of our town halls””. The show will return to the US following the Australian tour in April/May. John Waters added “To be embraced by New Yorkers as we were from October to January, this was a great reward for all of us who worked so hard to get our show there, at the Union Theatre. It truly felt as though Glass Onion had in fact given the city what it needed, to reconcile their own sense of loss of a much loved ‘son’, as John Lennon came to be. Night after night, our audiences stood to acknowledge us, and it doesn’t get much better than that.” In 1992, twelve years after Lennon’s death,

Waters and D’Arrietta first conceived and performed Lennon: Through a Glass Onion on a small stage at the Tilbury Hotel in Sydney. The show was an instant success. In the years that followed, Waters and D’Arrietta toured the show and played sold out engagements at venues including The Sydney Opera House. The show performed a three-month engagement in London’s West End. “Its been fantastic the response the show is receiving, especially from the younger audiences that are coming along, some of whom were not even born when Lennon and The Beatles were recording and releasing their music. It’s a testament to the legacy of the man and his music that still excites and intrigues people to this day” says Waters. “It never ceases to amaze us how many people still request to see the show, even after our last lengthy tour, we’re constantly getting emails and messages asking when is the show coming back, so its great that the demand and interest is always there”, says Waters. “The song Glass Onion was John Lennon’s postscript to The Beatles. It had such a strong image of crystal ball-gazing and peeling away the layers that it inspired the format for this show – a kaleidoscope collage of song, word, emotion and image”, agrees D’Arrietta with Waters. For the audience this is either an emotional trip down memory lane or a wonderful introduction to the life and times of one of the most fascinating icons of our time. LENNON THROUGH A GLASS ONION also appeared at the EDINBURGH FRINGE FESTIVAL in August 2016. www.johnwaters.com.au SUNDAY 11 JUNE – FRANKSTON – FRANKSTON ARTS CENTRE (VIC) www.thefac.com.au / (03) 9784 1060

PHOTOGRAPHY, ARCHITECTURE AND THE HUMAN FORM The exhibition Max & Olive focuses on the work of two photographers who shared their lives and studio for much of the 1930s and 1940s before going their separate ways. Max Dupain and Olive Cotton contributed enormously to 20th century Australian photography with Dupain ultimately being regarded as ‘Australia’s most respected and influential black and white photographer’ of this period. His famous 1937 work Sunbaker features in this exhibition. Looking at their work together between 1934 and 1945 provides an insight into the creative process of this unique partnership. Often shooting the same subjects, or pursuing subjects and pictorial effects in similar ways, the comparisons show Dupain’s more structured – even abstracted – approach to art and to the world, and Cotton’s immersive relationship to place, with an instinctual love of light and its effects. Iconic Australian Houses: an exhibition by Karen McCartney explores 31 of the most architecturally important Australian homes of the past 60 years. The exhibition begins in

the 1950s with the works of a new breed of Australian architects, and culminates in key works from some of Australia’s contemporary masters. This important exhibition looks beyond the physical structures to shine a light on the stories of the architects and clients. The houses featured are brought to life through vivid photography, rich illustrations, 3D models and filmed interviews with the architects who designed the homes and the people who commissioned and live in them. Melbourne-based artist Zoë Croggon works with sculpture, video, drawing and primarily, collage. Her practice considers the relationship between the kinetic body and its surroundings, contemplating the role we play in our environment and how deeply our surroundings inform our lives. MORNINGTON PENINSULA REGIONAL GALLERY, Civic Reserve, Dunns Road, Mornington. Exhibition dates: 12 May – 9 July. Hours: Tuesday–Sunday 10am–5pm. Exhibition admission fees: $4 adults / $2 concession.

MCG showcase: The MPNFL Sharks lost by 22 points against the Geelong Football League. Picture: Scott Memery

Sharks drown at the MCG

INTERLEAGUE

By Toe Punt THE Mornington Peninsula Nepean Football League failed in its attempt to become the greatest league in Victoria and arguably Australia at the MCG on Saturday. The MPNFL Sharks just couldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t keep up with a faster, more organised Geelong Football League, going down 16.9 (105) to 11.17 (83). The MPNFL trailed by as much as 35 points during the third quarter and never looked to threaten the title holders. While many looking at the score line could be forgiven for thinking that the MPNFL kicked themselves out of it, other than a couple of missed opportunities in the second quarter, most of the behinds were kicked from either long range or rushed. The reality is that the MPNFL was just beaten by a slicker, more highly skilled football league. The final margin of 22 points was just one point greater than the quarter time margin of 21 points. Geelong kicked the opening three goals of the game, kicking towards the Jolimont St end before Sorrentoâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Nick

Corp took advantage of a one on one in the goal square. However, Geelong booted the final two goals of the quarter to lead 5.1 (31) to 1.4 (10) at the first change. The MPNFLâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s only control of the match came in the first six minutes of the second quarter, booting the opening two goals, missing a couple of sitters and reducing the margin to seven points (31 to 24). However, once again, Geelong was able to withstand the attack, steady, and respond with four goals in 14 minutes to blow the margin back out to 27 points. That was the story of the day. Geelong had all the answers. Whenever the MPNFL looked as though it was going to make some kind of challenge, Geelong would take control of the situation and compose itself, play tempo footy, pass the ball around and regain the ascendancy. The MPNFL played the first 15 minutes of the third quarter one player short after Pinesâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; Tim Bongetti was yellow carded for being involved in a scuffle after the half time siren. Bonbeachâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Shane McDonald kicked a sensational goal after beating two op-

ponents at the beginning of the third quarter to drag the margin back to 15 points before Geelong once again booted the next three. The margin was 27 points at three quarter time and Geelong kicked the first major of the final quarter to ice the contest. YCW teenager and the youngest player on the field, Matthew LaFontaine, along with Corp, booted the last two goals of the game to reduce the final margin from 34 points to 22. The MPNFLâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s strategy going into the match was to hurt the Geelong bodies on the inside and win the contested footy. Geelongâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s strategy was to play as many fleet-footed kids as possible and utilise the wide open spaces of the MCG to cut through the opposition. Without question, the Geelong FL strategy came up trumps. The MPNFL went in with a team with an average age of 27, the large majority of whom played in the win against Northern FL last year. Geelong went in with a bunch averaging 22 years, 14 of whom had never played interleague footy with Geelong

before. The Geelong defence was dynamite and it was evident early that the MPNFL lacked leg speed in attack. La Fontaine went down there but it robbed the Sharks of speed through the middle. Bonbeachâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Dylan Jones won the battle of the rucks but Geelong was better in tight. It had a couple of bulls at the contest and once they dished it out, the MPNFL couldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t keep up. In defence, the MPNFL had its work cut out, however, considering the organisation of the opposition bringing the footy in, they held up quite well. Morningtonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Warwick Miller and YCWâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Christian Ongarello were pretty good in the back half and Sorrentoâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s James Hallahan was clearly the MPNFLâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s best player. Hallahan played well on the ball until they required his drive from half back, which he provided. Skipper Rikki Johnston was very good until he rolled his ankle in the second quarter. He came back on but wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t the same. Sorrento team mate Luke Tapscott was the most productive midfielder and worked hard both ways. The real problem for the MPNFL was

through the middle and the forward half. It was just two slow in both areas and were easily turned inside out by smaller, fleet-footed opponents. There would be a big handful of MPNFL players that would never want to see any vision of the game and put the memory of the game behind them. One thing they should never lose sight of however is the experience of playing on the MCG â&#x20AC;&#x201C; what a privilege. Hats off too to MPNFL coach John Hynes, as well as assistants Gavin Artico, Paul Hopgood, Pat Poore and John Georgiou, who have been meeting, planning, training and watching games of footy since November last year. The preparation could not have been any better. The support staff of the MPNFL were also fantastic. However, despite the knowledge of the opposition, they could not underestimate the sheer talent and composure of the far less experienced Geelong FL. Next season, perhaps, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s about taking some lessons from the Geelong FL and showcasing our best young talent, mixing it with some experienced heads. It should be about showcasing our future.

Langy crushes Caulfield, Scott debuts for Strikers SOCCER

By Craig MacKenzie LANGWARRIN made a statement of intent on Saturday when it spanked Caulfield United Cobras 5-2 in their State 1 South-East top-of-the-table clash at Victory Park. Langy’s opening goal was all about the timing and angle of Liam Baxter’s off-the-ball run and Mat “Yaya” Luak’s ability to pick him out with a perfectly directed and weighted pass and once the quicksilver Invernesian was in the clear there could only be one result. From the left of the area Baxter slotted the ball low past advancing Caulfield keeper Jayden Allan and Langy was 1-0 up after six minutes. Lewis Foster won the ball in the 41st minute then switched play to the right where Connor Belger was lurking. Belger read the flight better than his Caulfield opponent before hammering home a low right-foot volley that beat Allan at his near post. But Caulfield clawed its way back into the contest four minutes later when beanstalk striker Cort KiblerMelby got free from the attentions of George Whiteoak and his clinical finish made it 2-1. In the 50th minute Aaran Currie decided to let fly from all of 30 metres sending the ball slamming against the Caulfield crossbar. A minute later Belger’s low leftfoot shot from outside the area made it 3-1 and when Baxter decided that the time was ripe for one of his party pieces the large Langy travelling support was in raptures. The time was the 61st minute and the trick was to tee up the ball with his first touch outside the area and with the second send a stunning volley over Allan’s head to make it 4-1. In the 74th minute Kibler-Melby outbustled Whiteoak and won the race against advancing Langy keeper Robbie Acs to head into the unguarded goal to make it 4-2 but Currie rounded off a good day for the league leader by scooting clear onto a superb John Guthrie through ball and slotting home in the 78th minute. A bad day for the home side was compounded when defender Thomas Rankin received a second caution and was sent off in the 81st minute. Mornington overpowered Warragul United with a 4-0 away win on Saturday with all the goals coming in the second half. Warragul failed to deal with a corner in the 48th minute and Mornington central defender Stevie Elliott scored with an overhead kick from close range. Mornington’s ace striker Ryan Paczkowski put the visitors further ahead in the 57th minute and a superb left-foot drive from substitute Nathan Smith in the 78th minute put the contest out of the home team’s reach. Paczkowski got his brace six minutes from time and although the win puts Mornington back into the promotion race it came at a high cost. Josh Valadon was injured in the first half and looks to have a few weeks on the sidelines due to medial ligament damage but his replacement, Stefan Soler, broke an ankle late in the contest and had to be taken to hospital. At training last week Nathan Yole suffered a foot injury and Scott Miller damaged ankle ligaments so the depth of Mornington’s first team squad is being severely tested. Due to a family bereavement Paczkowski flew back to England after the match but is due to return on Saturday

morning. Harry McCartney reports that a controversial derby at Monterey Reserve on Saturday resulted in a vital 4-2 win to Seaford United against home team Frankston Pines. Seaford made a positive start without luck as three shots in three minutes sailed over the Pines bar. But just when Seaford threatened to buck its trend of slow starts referee James Milloy awarded a penalty to the home side for what looked to be a clean tackle by Seaford’s Jarrod Sultana in the 8th minute. Ex-Casey Comets midfielder Francois Armansin converted with ease to make it 1-0. In the 35th minute Seaford captain Daniel Walsh made a blistering run down the left and played an effective one-two before unleashing a drive that slammed against the bar. The rebound was in dispute until a deflection fell to Alex Roberts in a one-on-one and he slotted it into the bottom right-hand corner for the equaliser. Early in the second half a through ball left Seaford striker Mitch Lander with only Pines keeper Alfonso Cardinale in his way. Lander tried to go around the keeper but only managed to go to ground as he rolled his foot on the ball and the two players unavoidably came together. Referee Milloy gave Cardinale a

second yellow forcing Pines boss Billy Rae to replace veteran Ben Caffrey with reserves part-time gloveman Liam Stuckenschmidt. Seaford’s Paul Maguire hit the roof of the net with his penalty conversion to put the visitors in front. In the 55th minute Seaford midfielder Tom Natoli challenged Stuckenschmidt and Lander pounced as the ball broke free and struck it into the open goal to make it 3-1. The goal of the game came in the 62nd minute when Lander broke down the right and chipped a perfect ball to Roberts who met it with a precise first-time half-volley that rocketed into the Pines net. In the 85th minute an Alex Akrivopoulos toe-poke left Seaford keeper Enes Umal stranded and the ball struck the back of the net to round off the scoring. Peninsula Strikers had to settle for a 1-1 draw in Saturday’s State 2 SouthEast home game against Old Scotch. Strikers featured new signing Sam Scott and the former Langy and Clifton Hill midfielder impressed Strikers’ coaching staff. “Sam’s an exceptional footballer and he brought another dimension to our game,” said Strikers’ head coach Craig Lewis. The home team suffered an early setback when Old Scotch swung in a free kick from a wide position and Chris McKenna’s attempt to head

clear went in off Piotr Korczyk. Strikers created enough chances to win comfortably but their dominance of possession couldn’t be translated into goals. Their sole reply came in the 68th minute when Trevor Johnson was at the back post to head home following a Tom Hawkins’ cross. A few minutes later Strikers’ fans watched in dismay as the referee produced a straight red for Strikers’ midfielder Danny Brooks. “That’s the best we’ve played all year. To create that many chances and to look solid defensively were pleasing aspects,” said Lewis. The Strikers’ boss wouldn’t be drawn into comment on the Brooks send-off but was clearly upset by the decision. Skye United maintained its promotion push in State 3 South-East with a 3-0 away win over Monbulk Rangers on Friday night. Skye’s custodian Jonathon Crook was in the thick of the action in the first 15 minutes, notably tipping over Marcus Watson’s long-range drive. The deadlock was broken in the 71st minute when English import Jacob Scotte-Hatherly whipped in a dangerous ball which young gun Lawrence Komba bundled over the line on his senior debut. A minute later Marcus Collier broke through the Monbulk defence and squared the ball to Scotte-Hatherly

who tapped in from close range to make it 2-0. The result was put beyond doubt in the 82nd minute when Jason Nowakowski skipped passed his man and cut the ball back to Komba who grabbed his second of the game. Baxter was outclassed by Springvale City 5-2 in their State 4 South clash at Ross Reserve last Friday night. In the 15th minute Springvale’s Dale Chrich finished a fine run from midfield with a stinging 20-metre strike that Baxter keeper Francis Beck parried but the incoming Stuart Nicholson headed home the rebound to open the scoring. The cultured left foot of Adem Alicevic swung into action in the 24th minute when his curling shot from the right beat Beck all ends up and nestled in the top far corner of the Baxter goal to make it 2-0. In the 28th minute Travis Ernsdoerfer played Liam Kilner in but he was tripped inside the area and Mark Pagliarulo converted with ease to make it 2-1. Beck failed to get a firm enough touch to a corner in the 43rd minute and former King’s Domain striker Graham Glynn forced the ball over the line to restore the home side’s two-goal cushion. Four minutes into the second half Ernsdoerfer made an excellent solo break into the left of the Springvale area and his cutback was side-footed home by fellow teenager Jack Gallagher to make it 3-2. Three minutes later Springvale broke down the left and big Glynn was sent through for a simple finish past the helpless Beck to make it 4-2. The scoreline was completed in the 78th minute when Beck could only palm Armin Kerla’s corner against the bar and Alicevic finished off the rebound. While the finger of blame can be pointed at Beck for two of Springvale’s goals his one-on-one saves were all that stood between Baxter and an embarrassing scoreline. Rosebud Heart got back to winning ways in style with a thumping 5-1 away win over cellar dweller Endeavour Hills Fire last weekend. Dave Greening scored four goals taking his tally to 97 in 50 games for Heart, an insane strike rate at any level of the game and a continuation of his remarkable scoring record in Victorian soccer. Somerville Eagles remain the only winless State 5 South side after Saturday’s 5-1 away loss to Sandown Lions whose scorers were Yandon Kong (2), Math Thowat (2) and Nhial Kim. Damien Finnegan scored for Somerville and this weekend’s home match against third-last outfit Bunyip District gives the Eagles a chance to get off the bottom of the league. This weekend’s games: SATURDAY, 3pm: Langwarrin v Manningham Utd Blues (Lawton Park), Mornington v Caulfield Utd Cobras (Dallas Brooks Park), Seaford Utd v Eltham Redbacks (North Seaford Reserve), Beaumaris v Peninsula Strikers (Beaumaris Reserve), Old Scotch v Frankston Pines (H.A.

Peninsula boxer gives knock-out performance By Ben Triandafillou PENINSULA boxer, Jayde Mitchell, has added another notch to his belt with a technical knockout at his latest outing on Saturday 22 April. Fighting in the semi-main event on a stacked card at the Melbourne Pavilion, Mitchell defeated a late replacement boxer, Roland Oroszlan, to make it eight straight wins. Mitchell took out the fight in the second round to notch up his seventh knock-out victory from 14 fights. But the highlight of the night was being on the same card as the legendary Sam “King” Soliman, Mitchell says. “Sam Soliman has been a hero of mine since I was young and starting out, I have always looked up to him,” Mitchell said. “Even with the late replacement opponent I still wanted to be a part of the card as Sam may only have a few fights left.” Soliman has won 45 fights across several weight divisions from light-middleweight division to cruiserweight, in a career spanning 20 years. Currently Australia’s top middleweight boxer, Soliman has come up against the best from competing for the WBA super-middleweight title

against Anthony Mundine in 2007 to defeating the multiple-time world champion Felix Sturm for the IBF middleweight title in 2014. Growing up in Blairgowrie, Mitchell has grasped a lot from watching Soliman who was originally from Frankston. “The way Sam carries himself has rubbed off on me,” Mitchell said. “We are quite similar, we are both very relaxed fighters and both just love boxing.” In a few weeks Mitchell will make his way back to Melbourne Park’s Function Centre where he recently defeated Les “Lock N’ Load” Sherrington to defend his WBA Oceania supermiddleweight title. Facing Istvan Zellr in a 10-round fight, Mitchell will be coming out with authority to defend his WBA Regional title at the Hosking Promotions Punches at the Park 4 on 3 June. “Zellr went 10 rounds with Sydney’s Bilal Akkaway who I will be meeting in the near future,” Mitchell said. “Akkaway and I are both regional champions, and he’s a champion in recess.” “Akkaway defeated Zellr last time, so I’ll be going out to make a statement and stop Istvan Zellr.”

Young jockey hangs up the saddle By Ben Triandafillou AFTER an exceptional apprenticeship, young jockey Dylan Dunn has been forced to hang up the saddle due to rising health concerns. Since being awarded as the 2016 Melbourne Apprentice Champion Jockey, Dunn, 22, has been in a constant battle with illness as his struggle to make the lightweight of a jockey took a toll. Growing up on the Mornington Peninsula, Dunn was likely to have weight problems from the start of his career but was eager to follow in his father, Dwayne Dunn’s, footsteps. Although having a strong passion for racing, Dunn has made the honourable decision to put his health first and announced on Tuesday 9 May, an early retirement from race riding. “It’s something you don’t want to do but you more or less have to,” Dylan Dunn said. “Unfortunately I was getting sick from wasting and losing weight so I had to make the hard decision to finish up as a jockey.” The young jockey’s health concerns began late in 2015 when stricken with pneumonia in his left lung. “I came good for about a year, and then late last year started to become really flat again,” Dunn said. “I tried to push through the pain but come January I was just too flat.” Later, Dunn was diagnosed with Glandular Fever and has been struggling to continue with his career as a jockey. “If you’re not seen all the time you start to lose rides, trainers rely on us to be there and get the job done so I tried to push through it,” Dunn said. “I rugged up as much as I could but in the end it all catches up with you.” Dunn’s career as a jockey has been full of

achievements, from riding the Queen’s first ever winner in Australia, to stamping his mark on the world stage, winning the 2016 World Apprentice Championships as well as joining the group classed jockey’s with victories in two Group Three races. “I was fortunate enough to have a ride for the Queen with ‘Bold Sniper’ and managed to ride the Queens first winner in Australia which was quite suprising to me.” “Riding a winner for the Queen was very special but that same day I was able to beat my Dad in a race by a head for the first time, which was one of the special moments in my career.” Dunn is now planning a new career as a mortgage broker and is also looking at becoming a presenter for the racing media. “There’s been a lot of support since announcing my retirement,” Dunn said. “I have started my own financial services which is looking quite positive so far. It’s another venture in life that might pay off.” “Life goes on and sometimes when you get kicked down you just have to bounce back harder.”


SOUTHERN PENINSULA scoreboard

Peninsula boys’ side host the Kiwis By Ben Triandafillou THE Mornington Peninsula’s friendly-rivalry with AFL New Zealand was again put on show when the representative sides clashed at Ferrero Reserve, Mount Martha on Friday 5 May. Welcomed on Wednesday 3 May, the AFLNZ under-18’s Institute of Sport team had a training session and welcome dinner at Hastings Football Club with the Mornington Peninsula Junior Football League’s (MPJFL) under-17’s interleague side, before facing each other on the Friday night. Playing under lights, the New Zealand boys performed a spine-tingling Hakka in front of a crowd of 500 people. The Mornington Peninsula side quickly responded at the start of the first quarter, booting the first four goals of the game.

The New Zealand Hawks dug deep and continued to put a fight, kicking two goals early in the second quarter to get back into the game, but as the final whistle blew, the Mornington Peninsula side was too strong and was able to kick away for a 57 point victory over the Hawks. “The game was fantastic and the New Zealand boys performed, from what I know, the first Hakka on the Mornington Peninsula,” MPJFL president Andrew Souter said. “It was a massive event and both teams played great.” The friendly-rivalry comes off the back of the MPJFL’s successful trip to New Zealand over the ANZAC Day weekend where the under-16 boys and Youth Girls side participated in the 2017 New Zealand Football Tour.
