Hands raised for roadside clean up TEN enthusiastic volunteers got together to clean up sections of the Esplanade, Mt Martha, after the Around the Bay in a Day ride, Sunday 6 October. Over two-and-a-half hours between Ellerina and Bradford roads the group ran out of bags in collecting 362 cans, 155 plastic bottles, 419 glass bottles and 936 CDs weighing 246kg. The volunteers included Cathy Mitchell, Sarah Joyce, Amy Westnedge, Andy Quin, Jessica Schubert-Hoban, Andrew Sparkinson, Gary Robertson, Cathy Norman, Simon Hodgson and environmentalist Josie Jones. “We encouraged the riders along The Esplanade and they thanked us as we scrambled through 280 metres of roadside,” Ms Jones said. “We estimate there are at least 4000 kilograms of litter along the whole length [of the Esplanade], as well as couches, washing machines, bread-makers, dryers, fridges, mattresses and the like.” Ms Westnedge said there was a need to find “solutions that stop littering, such as a container deposit scheme. Victoria is the only state without one”.

No cash grab in green wedge rates - shire Stephen Taylor steve@mpnews.com.au MORNINGTON Peninsula Shire Council has hit back at claims is making a rates “cash grab” from smaller properties within the green wedge. “When one sector of ratepayers has a change of rate burden, in this case an increase, others receive a decrease; it causes no overall increase in rate income,” the mayor Cr David Gill said. The claims come as the shire faces protests over its levying of a 20 per cent rates hike on the owners of 724 green wedge properties of two hectares

in size or less (“Irate at green wedge hikes” The News 24/9/19). Paul Whitaker, of Red Hill, said residents hit by a jump of up to $900 in the Rural Living Rate were “shocked” at the size of the hike. Thirty-year resident Sandra Miller initially thought there “must have been a mistake” when she opened her recent rates’ notice. “The council has not been transparent in the introduction of this,” she said. “This 20 per cent increase on top of our already sizeable rates is completely unfair.” Cr Gill defended the decision saying the vote to bring in the rural living rate was “unanimous [after] a thorough de-

liberation of the issues”. He said the state government-forced rate cap of 2.5 per cent applied to the total shire rate income, with individual rate notices varying according to yearly valuations. “Special rating categories are offered to farmers who received a 65 per cent rate dispensation because of the benefit they bring in protecting the green wedge from insensitive development,” Cr Gill said. “There is also the potential for suitable properties to apply for a rural conservation rate of minus 25 per cent if works are approved that benefit the green wedge.”

Cr Hugh Fraser said affected residents “gained greater value than the general ratepayer from the programs and policies which protect the green wedge and their rural residential amenity”. The higher rates paid for living within the green wedge would go towards reducing rates charged to general ratepayers and the owners of larger green wedge properties. The shire’s financial controller Bulent Oz said smaller blocks did not make the same contribution to the green wedge – such as supporting agricultural production, providing habitat or maintaining landscape values, and

did not incur the same land management costs – yet “their owners still gain greater value than the general ratepayer from the programs and policies which protect the green wedge and their rural residential amenity”. “In this context council determined to use a differential rate so that owners of these smaller ‘rural living lots’ pay more in the dollar of Capital Improved Value reflecting the benefit they gain from a location within the green wedge,” he said. “This in turn will reduce the rate in the dollar charged to general ratepayers and the owners of larger properties in the green wedge.”

New challenge for TV’s ninja warriors THREE of the contestants from this year’s Australian Ninja Warriors contest have now swung their training towards scaling Arthurs Seat. Charlie Robbins, who won the grand final of the latest Channel 9 series, and fellow “warriors” Zak Stolz and Troy Cullen have been named as ambassadors for this year’s Arthurs Seat Challenge. All three coach gymnastics in Rosebud and are training at The Compound at Tuerong as part of their preparations for the next Ninja series. “With the roads being such a dangerous place, we need to help improve knowledge and attitudes, especially with phones,” Robbins said when asked about the importance of the Arthurs Seat Challenge which raises money for Fit to Drive workshops at secondary schools. Mt Eliza Secondary College principal, Angela Pollard, said the three Australian Ninja Warrior contestants were ideal ambassadors for the challenge. “As young people who live a fit and healthy lifestyle, they wish to encourage others to take part in this event and challenge themselves as we have seen the warriors do so successfully,” Ms Pollard said. Robbins, Stolz and Cullen grew up on the peninsula and all attended Rosebud Secondary College where they completed the Fit To Drive workshop. Robbins visited students at Sorrento and St Joseph's primary school soon after his grand final win and he plans to visit to Rye Primary. Cullen and Robbins started doing gymnastics at a young age, along with fellow warrior Ashlin Herbert. Stolz was a self-taught gymnast who teamed up with his mates four years ago. One year later, they were all introduced to the intense world of ninja training at The Compound by Herbert. While making their way up the 6.7-kilometre course to the top of Arthurs Seat does not include any ninja obstacles, they see it as a different sort of challenge - helping to raise awareness of the Fit to Drive program. The Arthurs Seat Challenge 6.7km fun run and walk starts at 8.30am Sunday 10 November near Rosebud Primary School. Register online at www.arthursseatchallenge.com.au

Shire plans to ban plastics Keith Platt keith@mpnews.com.au ORGANISERS of events on the Mornington Peninsula may eventually be told to stop using any items made from single use plastics. Single use plastics facing a ban include balloons, water or beverage containers, coffee cups and lids, straws, bags, plates and cutlery, takeaway food containers and promotional items. Mornington Peninsula Shire councillors have given the go ahead for $165,000 to be spent on the first stage of a program designed to wipe out sin-

gle use plastic items. Waste services team leader Daniel Hinson suggested phasing out single use plastics at shire events within one to two years and externally managed events on shire land within three years. The mayor Cr David Gill has told The News that councillors want this timetable “done quicker”. He said councillors were “very intent on doing it right” and believed tighter deadlines should apply to the shire “to show people we’re serious”. Consultants would be hired as part of a program to outline the benefits to the public and businesses of not using

single use plastics. Other municipalities have failed in their efforts to phase out single use plastics, with just three of 14 setting a timeline for a ban and four already extending their original deadlines. “There is no precedent for a successful shire-wide ban in Australia given the requirement for changes to the local by-laws and potential concern from traders who may not support the ban and may request compensation for lost business,” Mr Hinson stated in a report to council’s 8 October meeting. Part of the first 12 months of bringing in the ban on plastics at events on

the peninsula will include the shire supporting a “plastic free places” trial at Mt Martha. Mr Hinson said there were alternatives to many single use plastic items that “can drastically reduce the impact of plastic on our environment”. However, “significant investment” would be needed at shire-owned buildings for such things as sinks, dishwashers, crockery and cutlery, transport equipment and shelving to replace single use plastics. “When discarded in landfill or in the environment, plastic can take thousands of years to decompose – if at

all,” Mr Hinson said. “Plastics break up into smaller and smaller pieces over time. The potential impact of plastic pollution is therefore long-term and can become increasingly difficult to manage over time. “When littered, the economic impact of plastics comprises not only the lost economic value in the material and its production, but also the costs of clean ups, losses for recreation, tourism and the liveability of our coastal areas.” Mr Hinson said the shire would gain credibility be “leading by example” by banning single use plastics within its own operations.

Support hailed for Better Buses campaign MORNINGTON Peninsula Shire is putting buses ahead of trains in its efforts to improve public transport on the peninsula. While politicians and lobby groups continue to talk up the benefits of electrifying the rail line from Frankston to Baxter and beyond, the shire’s Better Buses campaign is aiming for a more realistic outcome, at least in the short term. The mayor Cr David Gill said although he and CEO John Baker had had “an extremely productive meeting” with Public Transport Minister Melissa Horne, “the harsh reality is that the shire is not getting its fair share of public transport funding from past and current state governments, and I want this inequality to stop now”. In the four weeks since the 26 August launch of its campaign for more frequent and passenger-friendly bus routes throughout the peninsula, the shire attracted tens of thousands of people to its online presence. It says there have been 37,000 people “engaged with the campaign content on Facebook”; 31,000 people have watched online videos (mornpen.vic.gov.au/betterbuses); and, 714 people have accepted the invitation write their stories on the Better Buses postcards. Thirty postcard boxes have been placed around the shire, including Rosebud Hospital, Peninsula Grange Retirement Village, public libraries at Hastings, Mornington, Rosebud and Somerville, Dromana Secondary College, Rye Hotel, Bunnings at Hastings and Mornington and Pelican Park recreation centres. The says the feedback has allowed it to “understand attitudes, opinions and concerns of the peninsula community regarding the bus network”. The mayor Cr David Gill said the feedback “shows desperate residents are coming out in force to pick up a postcard and tell us why the peninsula needs better bus services”. Cr Gill described how a mother at Somerville was shocked “that she and her children need to catch two buses to get from Somerville to Mornington”. A Shoreham woman used a postcard to complain about “zero public transport”, while another woman, from Mt Eliza, said better public transport would help ensure peninsula residents were not isolated.

Shire ‘robust’ in managing corruption prevention Keith Platt keith@mpnews.com.au MORNINGTON Peninsula Shire Council says it has “developed robust policies” to prevent corruption when buying goods and services. CEO John baker says the shire Places the “highest importance” on managing services it provides with “public money”. Mr Baker’s assurances follow the investigation of corruption and kickbacks at Darebin and Ballarat councils by the Independent Broad-based Anti-corruption Commission (IBAC). As a result of its investigations IBAC has recommended Local Government Victoria consider developing a code of conduct for local government suppliers. The code would outline standards expected of suppliers, including in relation to reporting suspected misconduct or corrupt conduct on the part of council employees and other suppliers. Mr Baker said he “welcomes the development of a code of conduct for suppliers from Local Government Victoria and the recommendations in the [IBAC] report which contribute to the protection of ratepayers money”. IBAC had warned that corrupt practices uncovered at Darebin and Ballarat “are likely to be faced by most, if not all, councils in Victoria” (“Councils warned about corruption” The News 8/10/19). Mr Baker says Mornington Peninsula Shire’s has “processes and procurement governance that already address the recommendations made [by IBAC] … pertaining to corruption vulnerabilities”.

“To support our procurement processes and policies, regular training sessions are provided to all employees involved that includes the organisational procurement policy, procedures, system and the employees’ responsibilities in regards to conflict of interest, financial delegations and reporting suspected fraud,” Mr Baker told The News. In a special report to parliament IBAC warned that councils need to consider the way they manage procurement to reduce risks of corruption. “Allegations of corruption associated with council procurement practices and processes are a recurring theme in the complaints received and investigated by IBAC,” IBAC commissioner Robert Redlich QC said. “This report highlights a range of procurementrelated corruption risks and vulnerabilities which, while they were found in two councils, are likely to be faced by most if not all councils in Victoria.” The IBAC investigations found that a former project manager at the Darebin City Council received cash, gifts and other benefits for helping an associate’s company win more than $16 million in contracts. A former manager at the City of Ballarat Council had enabled associates and family to win contracts, in exchange for financial “kickbacks”. In 2017, the manager was convicted of a range of offences and sentenced to three years’ jail and ordered to repay $31,200. Three other people, including his wife, pleaded guilty to other charges. “Considerable power is vested in council employees to source suppliers, manage contracts and authorise payment for goods, services and works

– spending millions of dollars of public money,” Mr Redlich said. “Public sector corruption it is not a victimless crime. It wastes taxes and rates that should be used to operate and maintain Victoria's schools, hospitals, roads and other vital public services and projects. And it damages the reputation of organisations and undermines community's confidence in the public sector.”

Earthing device eases fire fears A DEVICE that reduces the risk of a spark from a powerline causing a fire is being installed at a Dromana electricity substation. The rapid earth fault current limiter is expected to be ready in time for summer. This is the third device to be installed in the United Energy network area. The first system was used to lessen the risk of bushfires at Frankston South as part of a 2009 trial and the second was installed at Mornington in November. The devices have so far automatically activated more than 530 times on the Mornington Peninsula, which is one of United Energy’s highest bushfire risk areas. Crews are working on overhead powerlines and other infrastructure in the area and this work will continue all year. The Dromana substation supports 16,359 customers, supplied by seven feeders, 270km of overhead powerlines and 33km of underground cable. “We are focused on delivering safe power to homes and business and these devices will significantly improve the safety of the infrastructure and reduce the risk of fires starting from electricity assets,” United Energy’s David Wilkinson, said. “Our crews will be upgrading infrastructure throughout 2019 in the Dromana area to accommodate the new technology.”

Images reflect beauty of the storm Keith Platt keith@mpnews.com.au YANNI Dellaportas is more often than not carrying a camera. Known throughout the Mornington Peninsula as a professional photographer Yanni (as he prefers to be known) works with flashes and available light. As a photographer with The News, he attends organised events, festivals and meetings, anything that can be classed as news. Unknown to many of his subjects, Yanni has for more than three decades had a private project: photographing lightning. He happily acknowledges being a stormchaser. While his days of keeping an eye out for incoming storms are not about to end soon (if ever), Yanni has published a book of storm images. It’s a record of the years he’s spent mostly looking for lightning when a storm breaks. Beautiful Storm – capturing the art in nature’s fury, was launched at Mornington Peninsula Regional Gallery on Sunday 6 October. With forewords by former Australian of the Year and champion yachtsman Simon McKeon and former television weatherman Rob Gell, Beautiful Storm is peppered with the writings of 22 poets. In his foreword McKeon says sailors “respect a decent storm” and Gell relates how people “gasp” when observing “magnificent storm and skies”. The poems, while not always relating specifically to the accompanying photograph, are an illustration of how

wild weather can influence and affect creative minds. Speakers at the launch who spoke in praise of Yanni’s skill behind the camera included Mornington Peninsula Shire mayor Cr David Gill, Cr Antonella Celi, Heather Forbes McKeon (who along with other poets recited their works) and his wife, Liz. “I didn't necessarily want the poetry to literally relate to a particular photo. I wanted the viewer and reader to get more than one interpretation from the picture and words,” Yanni said at the launch. “While it’s taken around two years

to plan, design and finally release Beautiful Storm, it's taken close to 30 years of photography to capture all the images in this book.” Those years saw film cameras overtaken by the digital revolution, but some of the most evocative images in Beautiful Storm were recorded on film, with Yanni waiting days to know the outcome of his endeavours. One of the first lightning shots he took is in the book. “I've been storm chasing in my own backyard as it were for the past 30 years and finally putting some of my pictures into this book has made the

adventure worthwhile,” he said. “I had way more storm pictures than I could possibly fit into this book. But, once I started sorting through the archive, I found there were a lot of images that were similar to each other and I really wanted to present as many different photos as possible.” Beautiful Storm is available at Farrells Bookshop, Mornington; Antipodes Books & Gallery, Sorrento; Petersen's Bookshop, Hastings; and at twotailspublishing.com Profits from the sale of the book will go to help research into a cure for cancer.

STUDENTS heading back to school in Term 4 can walk, ride, skate or scoot for Walk to School month. The program, which runs until 1 November, aims to improve health and fitness, increase social connection and give students the confidence to walk to school. There’s also the added benefit of reducing car emissions. Last year more than 140,000 students from 759 schools across Victoria took part in the program. “Walk to School is about building healthy habits for your children and making physical activity part of your daily routine,” Mornington Peninsula Shire mayor Cr David Gill said. In support of the program, the shire is running a Fancy Feet/Bling Your Bike or Scooter Day competition among participating schools. For the chance to win a trophy made by one of the peninsula’s men’s sheds and a whole-of-school celebration dance party, schools are encouraged to hold a competition day during October where students can show off their creativity. Photos can be submitted to: walktoschool@mornpen.vic.gov.au Participating schools will also go in the running to win prizes, including a footy clinic at their school, hosted by an AFL or AFLW player.

All calm for ‘disaster’ ship’s visit ALL was calm in Port Phillip and the view from HMAS Choules as it lay at anchor off Safety Beach last week. Signs of life on the land would have been unremarkable for those aboard the Choules at night - vehicles travelling along bayside roads, house lights ablaze on the sides of Mt Martha and Arthurs Seat.

from one navy to another and while still sailing under the name Largs bay, the ship was part of the international relief effort following the Haiti earthquake. The Choules is an amphibious landing ship dock that weighs in at 16,000 tonnes. The Choules is part of the Australian Defence Force’s amphibious capability to activate in the case of emergency or natural disaster along with the Canberra and Adelaide. Keith Platt


Hospital expands to cater for rise in addictions BELEURA Private Hospital, Mornington is expanding to meet increasing demand to provide treatment for alcoholics and mental health patients. Once completed, the expansion will mean patients do not have to leave to the hospital to attend a day centre. Work to increase the number of beds from 32 to 48 at the centre is expected to start before Christmas and finish about 18 months later. The announcement of the expansion at the Ramsay Health Care-owned hospital was made in the lead-up to Mental Health Awareness Week (5-11 October). Nurse unit manager, Monique Nicolaou, said there was increasing demand for alcohol addiction services with people coming to Mornington for treatment from South Australia and Queensland. “We are the only private alcohol addiction service in the Mornington region and we also have medical practitioners from other states referring their patients to our relapse prevention clinics,” Ms Nicolaou said. “At the moment, patients have to travel about 15 minutes from the hospital to our off-site day centre. “The expansion means those admitted to the inpatient alcohol addiction program will no longer have to leave the hospital every day and can be treated on site.” Ms Nicolaou said patients aged from 18 were DECKING T/Pine 70x22 KD ACQ ........................... $2.70mt T/Pine 90x22 KD ACQ ........................... $3.50mt T/Pine 140x22 KD ACQ ......................... $6.25mt Merbau 70x19 Random ........................ $4.75mt Merbau 90x19 Random ........................ $6.50mt Merbau 140x22 Random .................... $13.95mt

being treated at the hospital for alcohol addiction and many of those with alcohol dependency also had complex mental health issues. More than seven million Australians aged 16 to 85 will experience a mental health disorder during their lifetime. Ramsay Health Care mental health chair Kevin Cass-Ryall said there had been a gradual increase in the number of older people and younger people seeking help for a mental health condition. “Patients want more specialised treatment and a more holistic approach to their recovery, along with a care regime that draws on a multidisciplinary team,” he said. “They are also increasingly looking for ways to receive treatment outside hospital to remove the need for them to stay overnight in a clinic.” Figures supplied by Ramsay Health Care show that of the 5500 mental health patients it treats each year, 45 per cent have mood disorders (including depression, bipolar disorder, and dysthymia); 25 per cent had a physical and emotional dependence on substances or behaviours, such as drugs, alcohol, gambling and/or gaming); 15 per cent had anxiety disorders; 10 per cent post traumatic stress syndrome (PTSD); and 5 per cent psychotic disorders (an impaired interpretation of reality commonly associated with hallucinations and delusions).

Hopes high as finals approach SUPER Koorie Kids Bush Playgroup and Balnarring Preschool have been named as finalists in the 2019 Victorian Early Years Awards. The awards celebrate the contributions that individuals and organisations make to improving the learning and development of young children and their families. Super Koorie Kids Bush Playgroup and Balnarring Preschool were nominated in the Creating Collaborative Community Partnerships category, which will be awarded next month. Since 2016, Mornington Peninsula Shire has worked closely with Willum Warrain Aboriginal Gathering Place to provide Super Koorie Kids Bush Playgroup, a culturally welcoming bush playgroup for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander children and families. The aim was to create a weekly opportunity for these children to be immersed in their culture and learn in a caring environment, surrounded by kin. The success of this model has allowed members of the Willum Warrain Bush Playgroup to take ownership of the program and, as of this year, Super Koorie Kids is run by three local parents. Balnarring Preschool was nominated for its program delivered in partnership with the Boon Wurrung Foundation, which advocates a culture of learning in natural environments and consciously connecting children to the land. Since 2010, the organisation has been introducing First People’s world views into its practice and community, carefully guided by Elders from the Boon Wurrung peoples, on whose

land the preschool stands. First People’s perspectives are now incorporated into all areas of the daily curriculum, allowing children to learn and explore the Boon Wurrung language, stories, songs and dances. The mayor Cr David Gill congratulated both finalists on their dedication to bringing Aboriginal and Torres Strait Island culture to the forefront of learning for our young community. “It’s fantastic to see two well deserving local projects acknowledged at a state level,” he said. “To have both programs now run by community represents great success

for the empowerment and independence of our people. “The success of both programs is evident in the positive community feedback and high level of enrolments. “Well done to all involved and congratulations on your dedication to improving our community culture.” Winners will receive $10,000$15,000 to further develop their work or undertake professional development. The award winners will be announced Tuesday 22 October at the National Gallery of Victoria. Details: education.vic.gov.au/veya

Rosebud’s poster girl revs up for Rockfest By Tony Healey FOR Sandi Horne, it’s all about cars. Not just your ordinary cars but souped up classic Hot Rods, muscle cars and dragsters. Not something that one might associate with this glamorous mother of two girls. Not just a pretty face, Sandi’s love of classic cars has forged a lifestyle career that sees her travel the country working at motoring events, festivals and car shows, usually as an MC or host. Sandi’s passion and unbounding enthusiasm for classic cars is due mainly to her parents. “They both enjoyed modifying cars and Hot Rods including Austin Healey, Jaguar and early model Holden cars and as a youngster I knew this was something I really wanted to do too.” The MC, promo, Pin Up model and brand ambassador was encouraged by her father to study accountancy and on completing her course found employment in the automotive industry. “I just love cars and made sure that my work as an accountant was in the auto industry just so I could get nearer to cars, any cars!” Sandi said. After having kids and always owning Hot Rods Sandi was often pulled in the direction of filming by friends on Channel 31 and was consequently offered jobs to MC and host automotive events around Australia. Sandi is also the presenter of YouTube channel’s regular automotive-related Greased n’ Grassed entertainment show ad-libbing her way interviewing likeminded owners, event organisers and classic car enthusiasts. When hosting shows Sandi dresses as a

30 Years of helping locals achieve movement for life ON 16 October 1989, Paul Rowson opened Balnarring Physiotherapy. Initially Paul treated, answered the phone, and was essentially a one-man band. Today, Paul and his wife Kerry are the Directors of Back In Motion Balnarring and are celebrating three decades in business. “One customer has been coming for thirty years since the day I opened and is still a big advocate for us. Building and maintaining that sort of trust with local community members is so important – they’re the reason we’re still here after thirty years,” says Paul. Paul has always been an active member of the local community and is regularly attending training at Red Hill Football Club, which is where he met his wife Kerry in 1990. Their passion for supporting local sporting clubs is still strong today, providing physiotherapy for the Red Hill Football Club this year, as well as the Crib Point and Hastings Football Clubs over previous years. The team at Balnarring Back In Motion are currently proud to be treating several players from all three clubs. In 2016 Paul and Kerry joined the Back In Motion Health Group, moved premises, and have three young, enthusiastic, professional physios working in the clinic, as well as three fantastic administration team members. The clinic now offers Physiotherapy, Massage, Pilates, and Exercise Rehab to help you overcome your injuries as quickly as possible and keep you moving for life. “This has had an enormous impact

Now, if they make the class commitment, their improvement can be accelerated in a way we could not control with home exercises years ago. Most of us struggle with the little disciplines that are required to optimize our health outcomes.”

People are becoming more health conscious and realise that they need to keep moving if they are to optimise their health. Paul tries to live an active lifestyle, whether it be the occasional surf, swimming, going to the gym, walking the dog with Kerry, or maintain his habit of doing exercise

(no matter how little) every day. Routine is key. This Saturday 19 October, Back In Motion Balnarring are having an opening day to celebrate 30 years in the Balnarring community. It will be a fun day for new and existing clients with giveaways, talks by Paul, Mel and David, and a celebratory

birthday cake. Learn more about the new Shockwave technology that can help improve shoulder and heel pain quickly, 7 secrets to a healthy life, and dry needling treatment. Call the clinic on (03) 5983 1021 for the talk times and drop in to see Paul, Kerry and the team.

ON THE COVER

A MARK OF DISTINCTION THROUGH QUALITY AND CHARACTER IN the highly coveted hills of McCrae, on a superb 2669 square metre block from where you gaze across the beautiful bay from almost any vantage point, this architect-designed wonder is your opportunity to enjoy a luxurious lifestyle on the peninsula. Landscaped native gardens that flank a circular exposed aggregate driveway - and a bridge walkway, constructed with Grey Box timber reclaimed from Frankston Pier - all combine to make a grand entrance to this luxurious home built from Mount Gambier Limestone. After crossing your own bridge, you enter the expansive open plan kitchen and family area which also features reclaimed timber floors that positively gleam in the natural light that cascades through the floor to ceilings windows. A well-equipped kitchen boasts Caesarstone bench tops and premium stainless-steel appliances include a dishwasher and an oven with gas cook top and range hood. All rooms on this upper level have bi-fold doors opening out to the magnificent main balcony; this includes the spacious master bedroom which features a dressing room, ensuite and separate powder room. Adjacent to the master bedroom is ‘The Den’ – a unique living space for a parents retreat or a quiet place to host intimate gatherings. Moving downstairs via the recycled Oregon timber staircase, the accommodations on this level are equally impressive and comprise a further four bedrooms with built-in robes - a guest bedroom has an ensuite - and a separate family bathroom and powder room. Virtually self-contained, this downstairs zone features a central lounge room, with kitchen facilities, that opens out to the second balcony which also affords a panoramic bay view. The established gardens wrap around the rear of the home where two large grassy areas create a wonderful space for children and pets to play, or there is the opportunity to develop further and add a swimming pool (STCA). Making its own distinct statement in style, this exquisite home is perfectly complemented by its proximity to excellent schools plus world class wineries and golf courses.n

LETTERS

Letters - 300 words maximum and including full name, address and contact number - can be sent to The News, PO Box 588, Hastings 3915 or emailed to: team@mpnews.com.au

MP ‘proud’ of federal budget, but awaits state commitment I am happy to respond Jane Clarke’s questions on delivered federal government funding for the Mornington Peninsula that I wrote about in my Spring Newsletter (“Puzzled by MP’s claims of budget beneficiaries” Letters 8/10/19). I was proud to be able to secure $75 million for improvements to the Mornington Peninsula Freeway. After years of ignored advocacy to the Victorian government, the Morrison government has had to step in to fund improvements to Victorian government-owned and operated roads. Our funds are available right now for sound barriers and pedestrian upgrades. The MP for Nepean [Chris Brayne] and Victorian Roads Minister [Jaala Pulford] took interest in this project before the election, now this interest must be met with action and commitment to upgrade their own roads, in partnership with our government. On Point Nepean, the Monash and Melbourne universities’ national centre for coasts, environment and climate is absolutely in line with the reactivation plan for the Quarantine Station precinct, allowing for university education and research here on the peninsula. The proposal was designed with the Victorian government and the Morrison government’s announcement of $25 million in funding has been welcomed by both universities. The Somerville to Baxter bike path proposal has always called for funding to be provided by local, state and federal contributions. The $2 million Morrison government funding has delivered on our promise to the community. Now Mornington Peninsula Shire and Victorian government must now live up to their commitment. I also note that, upon investigation, Jane Clarke is a member of the Australian Labor Party and ran as a Labor candidate for Seawinds Ward at the 2016 council elections. I wonder why she did not feel it necessary to disclose this information or why the The News did not inquire on her affiliation, as they did with those reflecting Liberal views? Greg Hunt, MP for Flinders Editor: During the federal election campaign The News asked all writers of “political” letters to state their allegiances. It does not do so outside of campaign times.

Peninsula life Those of us that enjoy the “peninsula lifestyle” owe much to those who helped create it. We are in debt to many who helped ensure the rural ambience, which is so handy to our places of living and working, was protected and kept accessible. But no person deserves more credit than the late Alan Hunt who always valued his opportunity to promote the peninsula and to encourage action and instigate protection of its surroundings. Mr Hunt’s 31 years of representing the most worthwhile objectives for all its residents ended 27 years ago when he retired as the state MP for South Eastern Province on 2 October 1992. His Parliamentary career saw him serve as a minister in Victorian governments led by three premiers: Henry Bolte, Dick Hamer and Lindsey Thompson. But it was as Planning Minister, supported by Premier Hamer in the nine and half years of his time as premier, that green wedges were created, parkland protected and a value put on our heritage as never before. Alan Hunt was to oversee much of what happened to shape the benefits that we now enjoy as we walk through the bush, along coastal tracks or stroll through vineyards, all within easy access of bay side or hinterland locations. We cherish our peninsula ambience and are grateful to those responsible for its planning and protection, particularly Alan Hunt. Brian Joyce, Rosebud

Beaches for all Local and state authorities must ensure that any re-building of private jetties does not limit public access to much-loved beaches.

Mornington Peninsula Shire invested significant capital into the Dorothy Houghton pathway around the Eastern Sister to make the historic Collins Heritage precinct accessible to people walking around The Point from Camerons Bight and onto the beach at Sullivan Bay and beyond, to Sorrento. It seems that the jetty set need reminding that Australian beaches belong to us all. Sue Slamen, Blairgowrie

Ready for pool Please note the following: 1999 Mornington Peninsula Shire commissioned Sykes Humphreys & Associates with Peddle Thorp to undertake a pool feasibility study; 2000 Recommendations Adopted for new aquatic facilities in phased program; 2013 Petitions lodged with council in favour of foreshore site; 2014 Motion no.140 lodged by Cr Hugh Fraser. Council no longer requires coastal management for the proposed use and development of the foreshore for the location of SPA. Associated with the plan of the “foreshore site” was the idea of Rosebud Hub to be updated and environmentally inclusive. Well, that has not happened and it is still unattractive. There were about 16,000 signed petitions preferring the foreshore location and less than 5000 lodged for the aquatic centre not to be on foreshore. John Cain says [the foreshore proponents] “were content with wasting their time turning up to council meetings decked out in bathing caps and towels”. Wrong again. It was our time and it was more fun than he implies (“Writing history” Letters 9/10/19). The site of the aquatic centre was (and still is) controversial, no matter where the concept would be built. However, now the aquatic centre is going ahead 50 metres (not 25 metres) to meet the needs of an increasing population whose overwhelming support has been so positive. So get out your togs John Cain and prepare to enjoy the hard work of others. There is no use crying over spilt cornflakes, or the past. Betty Preston, convenor Southern Peninsula Aquatic Centre Action Group

Collinwood cleaned up Comedy is good for the soul, I’m told. Pleasing to read of Darryl Chambers thoughts albeit inaccurate (“Collingwood forever” Letters 9/10/19). To infer on the vague evidence of Fairfield classmates the easier path to Northcote High School entry is of course nonsense. True, some left school for good money at Duncan’s match factory. Entry to Northcote high without sitting for the entrance exam depended on your marks at the end of year 8. Some sat, failed, others to Collingwood tech. An entrance exam for Collingwood? Maybe, but they passed. Good for them, and Darryl. Go Pies. Cliff Ellen, Rye

Bank agreement I find it surprising that some people are unaware of the fact that many banks, including the big four, allow their ATMs to be used by customers of others on exactly the same terms as they would get from their own banks (“Banks withdrawal” Letters 8/10/19). If you see an ATM owned by ANZ, NAB or Westpac you will be able to use it to access your CBA account. Ron Simpson, Mornington

Banks misbehave It befuddles me why people are not more concerned about the banks’ behaviour in stealing from dead people, breaches of anti-money laundering and counter-terrorism financing regulations, and just general disregard for its customers with malpractice in it’s financial and insurance institution (“Banks withdrawal” Letters 8/10/19). Further mystifying is why people continue to deal with these corporate corruptors rather than

THE Spring newsletter distributed by Flinders MP Greg Hunt lists 41 “current and recent federal funding commitments”, several of which require matching finance by either the state government or Mornington Peninsula Shire. doing the right thing and dumping them. Continuing to deal with them is just letting them know there is no repercussion or reprehension, no matter how much you flaunt the law and screw your customers. Joe Lenzo, Safety Beach

Problems being solved I have a message for those young people feeling stressed about their impending doom due to climate change: We adults have been through this type of stress before, as have our parents and their parents as well. What seems an impending catastrophe today, can, with advances in technology and innovation, disappear tomorrow. As a young boy at school we were taught to prepare for a nuclear winter and that much of life would be obliterated when Russia and the US went to war. Then followed the population scare when we were told in the early 1970s that by 2000 the world would run out of food and China brought in the one child policy. Soon after followed the oil crisis that would see us plunge into darkness in 10 years when the oil ran out. Next was the y2k computer bug that would shut down world technology and see planes fall from the sky. None of these predicted disasters occurred. Mankind adapted. Try to look past the radical element screaming “emergency” because they are sheep and we have seen these hollow-winded doomsday preachers many times before. Yes, man-made emissions need to be reduced and smarter men than me are working hard at doing just that, but for now, try to read as many different news sources as possible to get a balanced view and have faith in humanity’s ability to adapt. If you do that, you may hopefully escape the sense of doom heaped on the shoulders of our youth like that on poor Greta Thornburg by her vegan activist parents and actually get to enjoy your youth. Michael G Free, Mt Martha

Follow the money How can a 16-year-old improperly educated Swedish schoolgirl influence social media and then go on to influence mainstream media to such an extent that she can organise worldwide strikes and marches and even address the United Nations on the serious scientific subject of climate changing? Where does she get the finance, the organisational skills, the intelligence and other resources, for all of this promotion and idolatry? Where did she get the political connections and nous to enable a UN speech? I’ve asked this and I ask all of the people suffering from carbon phobia to also seek the truth. Look up “money”. These “carbonphobics” keep demanding gov-

ernments “do something”. Like what? Destroy Australia? There are now hundreds of scientists and professionals, qualified in climate and related fields, who publicly state that there is no climate emergency. Changes are natural, normal and cyclical. More carbon dioxide should be beneficial. Europe froze over recently, like it did in 1709. Droughts happen. If we warm 10 degrees, good. No, of course you never hear of this. Why not? Think money. Our future climate cannot be predicted. It is not possible. What I can predict is that in 50 years there will be trillions of dollars worth of rusted out wind tower half megawatt generators, worn out solar arrays and dead one megawatt batteries rotting away, all unwanted and abandoned, because of good old solid, reliable 24-hour, 1000 megawatt electricity generators powered by coal, gas or uranium. There will be no need for diesel generators like we will have this summer on the “carbon neutral” Mornington Peninsula with its “climate emergency”. Brian A Mitchelson, Mornington

Crime stats misleading [Hastings MP] Neale Burgess’ assertion that there are “escalating crime rates” is wrong, according to sources like the Victorian Crime Statistics Agency, Wikipedia, and the ABC (“Law and order” Letters 25/9/19). Notably, the latest annual crime statistics reveal an overall 7.8 per cent drop, not an increase, let alone an “escalation” in criminal incident rates. Is the Liberal Party trying to scare us again, like in the last state election, that criminals and gangs are roaming out there? Research shows that most violent crimes are committed by offenders the victim knows (US Justice Department Report, 2017). Is the fear mongering about crime intended to create anxiety among Mornington Peninsula residents, particularly given the proportion of older people, in the hope of garnering votes? This is not to say that there are not several categories of crime that are on the rise. Instead of setting up these crime committees (just what is Mr Burgess proposing they do?) how about tackling the causes of a statistically alarming crime, crime perpetrated in the home, and focus on funding programs that prevent such crime and provide alternatives for women and children trapped in a violent setting. Instead of politicising about crime, fight for low-cost housing and decent income support to free victims from crime in the home. Drug-related crime may be on the rise, but will “crime committees” help addicts who are in urgent need of health services to treat their addiction? A constructive approach is what is needed.

100 YEARS AGO THIS WEEK...

“Welcome home” to Langwarrin soldiers Compiled by Cameron McCullough LAST Saturday night there was a “bumper house” to give welcome to the Langwarrin soldier “boys” who recently returned from active service abroad. Seldom has holding capacity of the Recreation Hall been taxed to greater extent and certainly a more successful function has never been held within its walls. Added to the fine audience was a splendid spirit of joyous enthusiasm which seemed to influence all concerned. The Chairman (Mr W. Williams) was never in better form, while Cr Hill (Cranbourne Shire) and Cr Oates (Frankston and Hastings Shire) also delivered inspiring addresses which seemed to add to the buoyancy of the meeting. Then there was the musical programme which in detail was an inspiration. It is generally conceded that the quality of the items rendered reached high standard mark and pleased even the most fastidious. The guests of the evening whose names were called included:– Drv. A. H. Clark; Pte. McDonald (Anzac); Tpr. F. Knox; Drv. J. Knox; Pte. T. Stephenson; Pte W. White; Bombadier T.I Evans. A full account of the programme will be published next issue. *** OUR LETTER BOX. ELECTRIC LIGHT. To the Editor, Sir – I am gratified to see that at last the Council is likely to take action to compel the Frankston Gas Electric Co to fulfill its long overdue obligations. Over two years ago I had my house wired throughout in readiness for connection and neighbors have been waiting even longer than this. The postponement of the supply of electric light was attributed to the war, but it is nearly 12 months now since hostilities ceased and yet there has been not intimation from the Company that we are any nearer to receiving lighting facilities than before. I have been seriously considering putting in an electric light generating outfit myself rather than be humbugged any longer, but hope that now the

Council is moving in the matter that the Company concerned will be stirred into activity. Yours faithfully, A. T. CARTHEW. “Lialeeta”, Seaford, 13.10.19. *** MAJOR W. T. Condor, formerly of the 7th Battalion, A.I.F., who has filled the position of assistant provost marshal for Victoria since leaving Langwarrin is about to retire from the service to take up a civil appointment in Papua. He was entertained by civil and military friends at dinner at Scott’s Hotel on Thursday. Major Conder will be succeeded by Captain R. W. Jones, M.C., M.M., who will combine the duties of A.P.M. and officer in charge of the Third District Guard. *** CR W. J. Oates represented the Shire of Frankston and Hastings at the annual municipal conference which opened in Melbourne Wednesday. *** STEPS are being taken to re-form the Frankston cricket club. A preliminary of cricket delegates was held at Somerville on Saturday evening las – Tyabb, Hastings, French Island, and Somerville being represented. It was decided to re-form the Peninsula Association and the following office bearers were elected – President, Mr Geo Keast, Secretary; Mr H. L. Cusworth of Hastings. The previous Peninsula rules were adopted with some additions and these will be printed and lent out in due course. The opening matches of the season were fixed for Saturday November 1st. Meanwhile another meeting of delegates will be held at the Mechanics’ Institute Hastings on Saturday evening the 21st inst when it is hoped Frankston, Balnarring, Mornington or any others will be represented. *** FROM the pages of the Mornington Standard, 18 October 1919

THE MEANING OF EXISTENCE... AND OTHER SHORT STORIES

A Running Commentary on Running By Stuart McCullough THIS may sound crazy, but – unitard gravy fuzz-face caboodle. The other thing that might sound crazy is the idea of voluntarily getting up at 5am to go running every day of the week. But that’s what I do. In fact, that’s what I’ve always done – rain, hail but definitely not shine. Five o’clock in the morning isn’t the crack of dawn – it’s unambiguously pre-crack. There are obvious difficulties with running at that time of day. Firstly, it’s dark. Really dark. You’re basically relying on intermittent streetlights to find your way. You simply have to hope that something hasn’t been left strewn across the footpath by some careless passer by, lest you end up tripping over. Which, at a certain age, is a singularly unpleasant experience. I’m not sure when falling over changes from being an ever day occurrence and no biggie to a minor catastrophe, but once it happens, there’s no turning back. The other palpable risk associated with super early morning runs is being mistaken for someone who is running away from something, rather than somebody undertaking exercise. Luckily, this has never happened to me. It must be something about my style – which I would describe something one notch above shuffling. If I was running from something, I would be in some considerable strife. I’m not sure how to describe it - perhaps a cross between a three-legged panda and a Muppet – but graceful it is not. The funny thing is, even though I’ve been running for years, I don’t really feel that I’ve gotten all that much better at it. I can run further than I used to. But I’ve become no more elegant than when I started all those years ago and I’m not sure I know any more than I did when I started out. I was in my twenties. The only time I’d exercised as a kid was at football training, which I’d stopped when I was fifteen. I think I assumed that fitness would be something that was simply

given to me, maybe for Christmas. Then, as I entered the workforce, my exercise regimen consisted solely of walking to the train station and back. And, if I felt really brave, carrying all the grocery shopping home rather than taking the car. I decided that something had to change. It was a challenge to get out of bed at first. But I wanted things to be different, I think. At the time, I was living in a small, one-bedroom flat / oversized utility cupboard near St Kilda. The challenge with early morning running in St Kilda is that you sometimes encounter people who are still enjoying the night before. This can be disastrous.

When approaching someone from behind, you end up doing all sorts of things to try and let them know you’re coming. Clearing your throat, talking or using a horn are just some of the techniques I’ve deployed to ensure I don’t startle others. Mostly it works. Sometimes it doesn’t. Suffice to say, that one gentleman dropped into a karate stance as I shuffled by, while a young girl who was too busy talking to her friends to notice that I was approaching, dropped her drink before unleashing the kind verbal tirade usually reserved for three quarter time when you’re sixty points down. Wherever I’ve lived, I’ve run. When I moved

to Brisbane, I used to run along the river. The lovely thing about running in Queensland is that so many other people are up and about and getting exercise. The streets of Elwood became so familiar to me that I’m surprised my footprints weren’t worn into the pavement. The great thing about running on holidays is that you get to do all kinds of reconnaissance. By the time you return home, you know where everything is. Sometimes I travel for work. This takes me to various towns in regional Victoria and I always go for a run. When I can, I take a photo of the place I’m in, as a kind of souvenir. To prove I was there. Often, I send these pictures to work colleagues as a way of showing how beautiful these places are and as an extreme form of humble-bragging to show them how early I got up. I can’t imagine not being able to run. But, at some point, it’ll be necessary to adapt. For me, running is time to think. This sounds improbable given that I’m always listening to music as I go, but I’ve always found it therapeutic. A way of keeping in balance. You’d be surprised how many of the world’s problems can be solved while listening to a playlist that features ‘Kajagoogoo’. Subconsciously, I might simply be honing my ‘flight’ reflex. Every once in a while, one of our smoke detectors will randomly go off. I think it happens if an ant wanders in to the detector. I feel sorry for the ant. It happened the other night at about two in the morning. One minute I was in a deep, deep sleep; the next I was bolt upright and running across the room. My wife told me later she thought I was going to get a fire extinguisher. I’m not so sure. Especially since I was three blocks away and in my pajamas before I turned around and realized that she hadn’t followed me. It’s a miracle she didn’t tell me to keep on running. stuart@stuartmccullough.com

scoreboard Pines fall, Carrum cruise, and Frankston YCW hold on in a thriller SOUTHERN PENINSULA NEWS

abb had put 174 runs on the board, a target which they would have felt good about defending. After a shaky start, Manders came in at number three and grabbed the game by the scruff of their neck for Seaford. His side ended up reaching their target with an over and four wickets to spare. James Quarby put together an innings for the ages for Carrum Downs, smashing 8 sixes and 13 fours on his way to a total of 123. His side set a target of 204 for their Balnarring opponents to chase down. Balnarring’s top order were poor and they fell short. Skye had a difficult day at home and saw their total of 197 easily chased down by Boneo. Rye also struggled on Saturday, and were bowled out for 93. Ballam Park claimed victory over them on the day.

By Brodie Cowburn

PENINSULA

RED Hill have secured a narrow win over Pines away from home. Playing out of Eric Bell Reserve, the travelling Red Hill chose to bat first. They lost their first opener for a duck but recovered well from there. All of Red Hill’s middle order performed well on the day, and they ended up putting 189 runs on the board by the time their innings expired. Pines bowler Patrick Jackson played a part, helping to clean up the tail and finishing with good figures of 4/24. Pines’ run chase started well with a 38 run opening stand, but they quickly started to lose qtickets. They steadied the ship and ended up in a good position at 5/120, requiring 70 more for the win. The tail end was not able to hold up for Pines, and they ended up all out for 164. At Ballam Park on Saturday, Long Island played host to Moorooduc. Long Island chose to bat first and did well, with eight of their batsmen reaching double digit figures. Despite being consistently good, none of Long Island’s batsmen went on to make a big score, and they ended up all out for a decent total of 159. Moorooduc opener Ben Williams did most of the heavy lifting during the run chase, putting 47 runs on the board. Unfortunately for him he got no help from his teammates, as the next five batsmen in for Mooroduc were all dismissed for less than five runs each. A spirited showing from the tail helped, but Moorooduc still fell short and were all out for 112. At Ditterich Reserve, Heatherhill did well to defend their total of 166 against Main Ridge. Heatherhill’s Kieran Lenehan did well with ball in hand, taking 4/20. Pearcedale had a tough day at home, when they were soundly defeated by Somerville. A brilliant team effort from Somerville’s top order set them up well, and they ended up setting target of 225 to win. Pearcedale couldn’t get close, and

PROVINCIAL Pines fall short: Red Hill got the better of Pines, bowling them out for 164. Picture: Andrew Hurst

only put 90 runs on the board in their 40 over innings.

DISTRICT

A STUNNING 142 run third wicket partnership has helped set up Carrum for an impressive win over Delacombe Park. Campbell Ak and Jake D’Atri did the damage, each notching up half centuries. Delacombe Park were faced with a target of 200 runs to chase down, and gave it their best shot. They put together a respectable innings, but ended up falling 29 runs short of the win. D’Atri stopped all chance of Delacombe Park snatching the win by cleaning up the tail order. He posted figures of 4/22 to round out a man of the match performance. Hastings had a good day against Rosebud, as they chased down a target of 130 with ease. Luke Hewitt was at his best for Hastings, scoring 71 not out to help Hastings chase down their target with

12 overs to spare and 9 wickets in hand. At Cyril Fox Reserve, Crib Point’s total of 226 proved far too big a task for Seaford Tigers. Matthew Blake was Crib Point’s best with bat in hand, passing his half century. Seaford Tigers started well, and at 0/62 it looked as if they might be a chance of snatching the win. They quickly fell to 4/64, and couldn’t recover from there. Seaford Tigers ended up all out for 142. Mt Martha struggled badly against Dromana on Saturday, setting just 89 runs for their opponents to win. Dromana didn’t do it easy during their run chase, but eventually claimed the win with four wickets in hand.

SUB DISTRICT

FRANKSTON YCW just held on to claim a thrilling win over Tootgarook over the weekend.

The Stonecats made the call to bat first at Tootgarook’s home ground, and started well with a 50 run opening stand. Although they batted well they were a little slow at times. YCW ended up at 7/139 at the end of their 40 over innings. Tootgarook got off to a great start and were in the box seat at 2/106. A tail order collapse put their run chase in jeopardy, and as the wickets started to fall the runs started to dry up too. Tootgarook’s early hard work was undone as they ended up running out of time. They finished 9 runs short of the win at the expiration of their innings. Nick Barfuss claimed the last two wickets of the innings to help the Stonecats scrape over the line. A brilliant innings of 84 from Scott Manders has helped Seaford claim a tight four wicket win over Tyabb. The Yabbies chose to bat first and started well, looking comfortable at 1/95. By the end of their innings Ty-

MT ELIZA proved too good for Mornington on Saturday in their second match for the season. Mornington chose to bat first and despite losing one opener for a duck, did well. They finished at 7/168 after their 40 overs, a respectable total. Mt Eliza had little trouble chasing down their target, and ended up claiming the win with six wickets and ten overs to spare. Opener Tim Clarke and number four batsman Jsutin Grant both passed their half centuries for Mt Eliza to help their side get the win. Chris Brittain’s entertaining century, featuring 7 fours and 7 sixes, helped Baxter claim a win over Flinders. Baxter looked brilliant and ended up at 6/230 at the end of their innings. Flinders worked hard but fell well and truly short at the end of their stint with the bat. They finished at 8/161. Langwarrin easily defended their total of 196 against Baden Powell at Lloyd Park. Tom Hussey’s innings of 82 was the highlight of the day for Langy. Peninsula OB also had a good day, with Sorrento failing in their efforts to chase down a target of 167 to win.

Loyalty key to Skye’s success SOCCER

By Craig MacKenzie LOYALTY is a word that Skye United gaffer Phil McGuinness uses often when discussing his newly promoted senior squad. “To be honest the main reason we’ve come so far is not down to the committee, not down to me and Stephen (Duffy, assistant coach), it’s down to the players and their loyalty,” McGuinness said. “This group is really, really close knit and anything you put in front of them they grab with both hands. “A lot of our success simply comes down to them. “These guys could all get a lot more to play at other clubs but their loyalty and commitment has taken us to where we are.” And right now that is the heady heights of State 2 South-East just a handful of years after teetering on the edge of the State 4 abyss. In some ways Skye is at the crossroads in its evolution despite winning promotion this year. It now finds itself competing against clubs with significantly higher playing budgets and it has to decide how it will deal with that. McGuinness and Duffy plan to meet shortly with the club to discuss this issue, their plans for the pre-season and the club’s aims for 2020. “If the club wants to get bigger and progress then its current policy needs to change,” McGuinness added. At 36 he is one of the youngest senior coaches in State 2 ranks but the sport is in his blood. He comes from a soccer-mad family in Edenderry in County Offaly in Ireland where his father was chairman of the local club and when he arrived in Melbourne in January 2012 it didn’t take him long to get involved with Langwarrin first as a player then as a coach. He coached Langy’s reserves to the 2014 championship then switched to Skye to assist senior coach Billy Armour. He had no intentions of playing but Armour talked him into it and despite his dodgy ankles (that have been operated on nine times) he played the last 15 games of the season and Skye narrowly avoided relegation. The demands of work and a young family forced him to step back from his involvement until Armour phoned last year to tell him that he had left Skye and encouraged him to apply for the vacant coaching position. “I was always going to work with

Stephen and when I went for the interview at Skye I think they might have had an assistant in mind but I just told them that I had the perfect candidate and asked them to trust me and they did.” That trust was rewarded with this year’s success and although McGuinness is under no illusions about the task facing Skye next season his confidence in his players is unshakeable. “I was extremely happy with the group we finished the season with but at the start of the season we had players who were injured or weren’t even at the club. “I know how hard it will be next year and for us to get promoted we will definitely need to add two or three players to the squad. “But for us to stay in State League 2 and let the club build for a year or two then I think the playing group that’s there at the moment is well able to match a lot of teams in that league.” There may be some departures from the current senior squad but McGuinness expects them to be minimal. “It’s possible that one or two players might hang up the boots or find it hard to keep going due to work commitments but if I lose any players I don’t think it will be to other clubs.”

An important factor in Skye’s 2019 success was the fitness of the senior squad. McGuinness and Duffy drove the players hard during last pre-season and the prevailing view was that this senior squad was the fittest group in the league. But when pre-season starts in November the players can expect to be asked to attain an even higher fitness level. “This pre-season will be harder than the last because I think you have to raise the ante in State 2. “A lot of people talked about the standard of our fitness last season which is a compliment to me and Stephen not that we’re looking for that. “I think we’ll be fitter going into this pre-season than we were last preseason so we’ll be hitting the ground running so to speak. “If any team in State League 2 underestimates us I think they will be in for a shock.” Meanwhile Football Victoria last week announced the restructured NPL junior set-up for season 2020. The junior boys’ NPL will include under-13s, under-14s, under-15s and under-16 teams only. The NPL under12s will now be included in the ex-

isting FV under-12 community competitions and the under-18s join the under-20s as part of the senior NPL set-up. The first 11 games of next NPL junior season will be a pre-qualification phase to grade clubs in what will become a three-league structure. The 48 clubs with junior NPL licences have been placed into four regionalised leagues for the prequalification phase and the Southern Region consists of Bentleigh Greens, Berwick City, Dandenong City, Dandenong Thunder, Gippsland, Glen Eira, Kingston City, Langwarrin, Mornington, Oakleigh Cannons, Peninsula Strikers and Springvale White Eagles. The season starts in early February. In NPL2 news Langwarrin resigned 18-year-old goalkeeper Colby Jones last week. Jones is trialling with A-League newcomer Western United and has signed as understudy to Langy’s senior keeper Fraser Maclaren. Langwarrin still is negotiating with a number of senior players including Callum and Luke Goulding, Jordan Templin and Lucas Portelli. At this stage from the squad that finished last season only David Stir-

ton, Max Etheridge and Boris Ovcin have left. Last week the Lawton Park outfit had its status in next year’s restructured NPL2 league confirmed by Football Victoria and faces the prospect of competing in arguably the toughest competition in its history. The league consists of Bulleen, Brunswick City, Goulburn Valley, Kingston City, Langwarrin, Manningham United, Moreland City, Moreland Zebras, Northcote City, North Geelong, Pascoe Vale and Werribee City. In State 2 news Peninsula Strikers appointed Paul Williams as senior coach last week. This is his third senior appointment after spells at Swinburne and Frankston Pines and he has been involved with Strikers as a junior and reserves coach and senior and reserves player for 10 years. He coached the reserves last season to a second-placed finish. “I’m really excited to be given this opportunity and the first thing on the agenda is to speak to the players both individually and as a group,” Williams said. “Obviously the reserves finished second and there are a few players in that group who I feel if given the chance could step up (to the senior squad). “I’m expecting that eight to 10 players in the senior squad last season will still be involved (next season).” Alex Halikias who coached Strikers under-20s last season will assist Williams while Donn Delaney who coached Langwarrin’s under-15s to the NPL title this year will coach the reserves. In State 3 news one of the worst kept secrets in local soccer circles became official last week when Frankston Pines announced the reappointment of Kevin “Squizzy” Taylor as senior coach. Taylor still has not settled on an assistant but on the playing front is exploring the possibility of trialling three young Japanese players who have all been involved in the youth programs of J-League clubs. The 22-year-old defender, 23-yearold midfielder and 23-year-old forward are all currently involved in the Japanese university competition.

Seth’s Super Guineas win HORSE RACING

By Ben Triandafillou THE Anthony Freedman-trained Super Seth has steamed home to score one of the narrowest victories in the $2 million Group One Caulfield Guineas on Saturday 12 October. The unbeaten Queenslander Alligator Blood looked home for all money after kicking a few lengths clear in the straight but the Dundeel three-yearold, Super Seth, unleashed a powerful final sprint to rush from near the rear of the field and get up right on the line. Super Seth’s outstanding performance was backed up on the clocked as he ran the sixth-fastest last 200m for the entire meeting with a split of 11.31sec and ran the mile 0.73sec faster than the Godolphin-owned, Flit, in the Group One Thousand Guineas. Part-owner of Super Seth, Jonathan Munz, also had Groundswell, who he bred and part-owns, finish in third place. Both horses are trained by Freedman at Munz’s Pinecliff property in Mount Eliza. Freedman said it’s taken a fair bit of work to get Super Seth to where he is now. “It doesn’t come naturally to him, he’s a bit goofy and does a few things wrong,” he said. “I wasn’t convinced he’d run a mile to be honest so we thought he may end up back at the Coolmore (Stud Stakes) but the target was always to try and win a stallion race with him. “He had a good two-year-old prep and he came back well but he needed to lift to win today and I think obvi-

ously the winkers did that today.” The win provided jockey Mark Zahra with back-to-back Group One victories after taking out the Group One Caulfield Stakes (2000m) aboard the Lindsay Park-trained Cape of Good

Hope in the race prior. “When I finally got him to balance and level out, he really let rip,” Zahra said of Super Seth. “He’ll get even further I think, it’s just great because I’ve had a bit to do

with him and I know a few of the owners. It’s great to see the plan all come together, he’s still learning, but the sky’s the limit.” Munz and Freedman also combined with the three-year-old filly, South-

bank, to place third by a head in the Group One Thousand Guineas. As for Super Seth’s future, Freedman said he’ll likely go for a break and will concentrate on returning for the Autumn.
