Bikers peddle bid for trail network MORNINGTON Peninsula’s largest mountain bike club, the Red Hill Riders, wants the slopes of Arthurs Seat to be seen as a biking “hot spot” for national and even international events. The club’s members are hoping for a grant through the state government’s Pick My Project competition to build a trail network that will take riders from the top of Arthurs Seat to the bottom at Hillview community reserve. The club recently partnered with the Arthurs Seat Eagle to get riders aboard the chairlift. “The Mornington Peninsula is well regarded as one of the hot spots of mountain biking in Australia, and businesses have long been a beneficiary of mountain bike related tourism,” Red Hill Riders president Terence Toh said. “If we were to be successful in our bid, we would be able to seriously expand the park’s trails, which would provide better access for riders of varying ages and abilities, including beginner riders.” “Anxious wait for pick a project cash” Page 5

AGL’s environment pitch to state Keith Platt keith@mpnews.com.au STATE planning minister Richard Wynne is expected to decide before the end of the month on the need for power company AGL to undertake full environmental studies into the effects of a floating gas terminal at Crib Point.

AGL and APA Transmission - which, if approved, will build a gas pipeline from Crib Point to Pakenham - submitted details of their proposals to Mr Wynne last Tuesday (11 September). Later that night Mornington Peninsula Shire called for “a state government-run transparent consultation process [into the importation of gas]

that includes examining environmental effects and problems associated with the proposed 60 kilometre pipeline through agricultural land”. The motion by Cr David Gill adopted unanimously by council, said the shire “shares community concerns” about the AGL’s gas import plan. State Liberal MP for Hastings Neale

Burgess and his federal Liberal colleague Flinders MP Greg Hunt have both said they oppose the gas terminal at Crib Point. The project for the 300 metre long floating storage and regasification unit (FSRU) - which AGL says is yet to be approved by its board - must also get the go ahead from the federal government.

Young jobseekers’ ‘passport’ to a better future Stephen Taylor steve@mpnews.com.au WHILE most young people on the Mornington Peninsula have the benefits of living within strong family structures supported by positive role models and a sound education improving their job prospects – many do not. That’s why the innovative Passport to my Future program is so important. The YMCA Peninsula Youth Service initiative is designed to give young people “a helping hand” to seek work placement and employment opportunities. It provides employers with a better insight into the capabilities and achievements of young people keen to enter the workforce. Rosebud Hotel is an enthusiastic founding supporter of the “Passport to My Future” program. Owner Andrew Nikakis said the venture – launched at the hotel Thursday 13 September – could help “encourage, empower and educate young people in our local community”. “The Passport to My Future program provides an opportunity for businesses to support and invest in the future of our local young people by giving them a helping hand into the workforce,” he said. “Over time this will help cut our high youth unemployment rate and contribute to generational change across the Mornington Peninsula.” Mr Nikakis said the program allowed businesses, big and small, to get involved.

“All we need do is offer interviews for work experience, work placement or future job opportunities to applicants holding their ‘passport’, or on their way to achieving it,” he said. “We look forward to being involved in Passport to My Future for many years to come and I would encourage other businesses to do the same.”

Rosebud Hotel is funding the design and printing of the “Passports”, printed matter and social media exposure as well as workplace certificates, such as RSA, food handlers’ certificates or warehouse and manual labour tickets. Also committed to the program are Peninsula Hot Springs, Castaways Resort Mission Beach, YMCA Frankston

Skate Park, Stringers Sorrento, IGA Blairgowrie, Cartridge World Rosebud, Bass Coast Plumbing, Rosebud Cinema, and Horsley Transport. Details: Contact YMCA Peninsula Youth Services manager Jeanette Horsley, 0448 916 724, or email: Jeanette.horsley@ymca.org.au

Expo offers help to those in need A FREE community expo during Anti-Poverty Week (14-20 October) offers “support and hope to anyone experiencing hardship”. The expo will raise awareness and address issues around housing affordability and homelessness on the Mornington Peninsula. Mornington Peninsula Housing Network is holding several activities during the week and is encouraging community groups and service organisations to help highlight the issues surrounding poverty and hardship. The expo will enable those on low incomes and Centrelink payments to learn more about services that can easily and affordably be accessed. It will offer giveaways, information and low cost products, including food, dental health checks, haircuts, housing services, legal services, eye testing, pet care, podiatry checks, rent-in-arrears and advance information, youth services, entertainment and social activities and volunteering opportunities. The expo will be attended by representatives from such service providers Salvocare Eastern, Peninsula Health and Bolton Clarke, as well as volunteer organisations. The mayor Cr Bryan Payne said everyone was welcome to attend whether it was to join campaigns for a better housing system, receive support or offer services to those in need. “We know that at any given time, members of our community may be struggling to pay their rent or find an affordable home,” he said.

“Council has an important role in managing the demand for housing and population growth on the peninsula and to provide assistance to those most vulnerable in a way that recognises our special values. “This action on the ground is a crucial element of supporting our community and complements the strategic work of council, such as the Housing and Settlement Strategy.” The strategy was adopted in December 2017 and outlines council’s direction for housing and population growth over the next 15 years. A key element is to support proposals by the state government to provide more social housing and address housing affordability issues. The shire’s Triple A Housing Committee chair Cr Simon Brooks said the expo would offer an array of health and wellbeing goods and services for those who might not normally be able to afford them. “We are the voice of the peninsula and are determined to improve social and affordable housing options while continuing to offer support to those in need in our community,” he said. The shire recently joined forces with service providers to deliver Youth2, a campaign addressing youth homelessness and advocating for crisis accommodation in Rosebud and Frankston. The Fair Deal Housing and Wellbeing Expo is at Rosebud Memorial Hall, 994 Point Nepean Road, Rosebud, 11am-2pm, Wednesday 17 October. Details: mornpen. vic.gov.au/housing

Biking ‘hot spot’: Red Hill mountain bike riders in last year’s Gravity Enduro event. Pictures: Supplied

Anxious wait for pick a project cash FIFTY-SIX active and engaged groups on the Mornington Peninsula are waiting anxiously to see the results of the Pick My Project “competition” being run by the state government. The Victorian-first community grants program is offering at least $1 million to clubs, groups and associations as well as a range of independent bright ideas from people working for their communities. They are all vying with one another to win public online support – or votes – for projects ranging from lighting at football ovals, paths for the disabled, club extensions to music afternoons, yoga and suicide prevention. Voting closed yesterday (Monday 17 September) with results to be announced later this month. Mornington Peninsula’s largest mountain bike club, the Red Hill Riders, are seeking money through Pick My Project to build a trail network that will take riders from the top of Arthurs Seat to the bottom at

Hillview community reserve. “The Mornington Peninsula is well regarded as one of the hot spots of mountain biking in Australia, and the town has long been a beneficiary of mountain bike related tourism,” Red Hill Riders president Terence Toh said. “If we were to be successful in our bid, we would be able to seriously expand the park’s trails, which would provide better access for riders of varying ages and abilities, including beginner riders. “We also have a vision of pitching for national and international mountain bike events to be hosted on the Mornington Peninsula in the future.” The mayor Cr Bryan Payne said he was “ecstatic that we have such an active, engaged community” participating in the fundraising project. “I encourage community members to get behind these wonderful local initiatives taking place throughout the peninsula,” he said.

IT’S SPRING TIME IT’S SANDAL TIME!

THE owner of a motor launch washed ashore at Fisherman’s beach, Mornington, on Friday hired an excavator to dig a channel so that another boat could drag it into deep water. The master of the 11.8 metre steel boat told Parks Victoria he expected to have it re-floated “on the next high tide”. Parks Victoria acting manager moorings and port services Stuart Wardrop said he was work-

ing with the man to get the unnamed boat back into the water “as soon as practical, given the clear weather conditions”. Mr Wardrop said the home-made boat had been anchored off Mornington pier on Saturday 8 September before breaking free and running aground two beaches south. He said the master was responsible for the recovery of his vessel. Stephen Taylor

Libs catch ‘boaties’ vote with first cast CAMPAIGNING for the 24 November state election is already underway, although just one of the major parties seems to have acknowledged the existence off the Mornington Peninsula. With the peninsula’s three state seats - Nepean, Mornington and Hastings - solidly held by the Liberals, Labor could be seen as already accepting there will be no change. The Premier Daniel Andrews and even newly-anointed Prime Minister Scott Morrison have been active in neighbouring marginal Frankston, but neither has seen fit to wander any further south. Frankston is held for Labor with a slim majority by Paul Edbrooke. He is being opposed for the Liberals by policeman, Mick Lamb. Greens convener for the peninsula Kelvin Stingel said Paul Saunders will stand in Nepean, David Sinclair in Mornington and Nathan Lesslie in Hastings. Mr Saunders will oppose Russell Joseph, who is hoping to gain the job of his boss, current long serving Liberal MP Martin Dixon. The Liberals publicity machine is as is done by all parties - churning out news releases that differ only in the name of the candidate (or sitting MP). One of the latest lures to gain votes was aimed fairly and squarely at “local boaties and recreational fishers in (whatever electorate is being lobbied)”. The news release details plans by

a Liberal Nationals government to “create a Blue Infrastructure Fund to provide first-class infrastructure and services for recreational water users like more boat ramps, jetties, navigational lighting as well as onshore facilities such as bigger car parks and cleaning tables”. The release issued by Mornington MP David Morris differs only to that of his Liberal colleague in Hastings, Neale Burgess, by mentioning Port Phillip and not Western Port. A near-identical release was put out by Liberal leader Matthew Guy. The opposition parties say they will spend more of the revenue collected by government from boating users than is spent by the Andrews Labor government. “The Blue Infrastructure Fund will invest in infrastructure like more boat ramps, jetties, navigational lighting and onshore facilities that improves access, enjoyment and protection to Victoria’s waterways,” the MPs announce in unison. And their lure seems to have worked already with VRFish, with the self-described “peak body representing Victorian recreational fishers” predicting the Blue Fund would “revolutionise the state’s failing boating infrastructure”. A statement issued on 11 September under the name of VRFish chairman Rob Loats quotes the same set of figures as the news release issued by the Liberal Party. Keith Platt

Bold plans: The Andrews Labor Government has promised to spend more than $500 million to revamp Frankston Hospital if it wins the November state election. The plans unveiled by Labor last week include two connected 11-storey towers. Illustration: Supplied

Labor pledge for hospital Brodie Cowburn brodie@mpnews.com.au FRANKSTON Hospital could be set to receive a major facelift, after the state Labor government promised $562 million for its ongoing development should the party be re-elected in November. Plans for the hospital include a new 11-storey building housing 120 new hospital beds, two operating theatres, and 13 emergency department beds. Premier Daniel Andrews visited the hospital on 10 September to announce that a re-elected state Labor government would deliver on the project. “We said we’d build a bigger emergency department at Frankston Hospital and we have, but there’s more to do,” Mr Andrews said.

“Only Labor will transform Frankston Hospital to give the growing number of young mums and families the world class healthcare they can rely on.” Work on the proposed project will start in 2020, and is projected to finish in 2024. Twelve new short stay emergency beds were recently opened at the hospital and work is underway on a crisis hub for the emergency mental health care centre. Two levels of the 11-storey hospital building will be used for mental health services. A new maternity ward, obstetrics ward, women’s clinic, paediatric ward, oncology ward, and special care nursery are also among the planned additions to the hospital. Early plans for the new building show the 11-storey building split

into two towers. Frankston mayor Cr Colin Hampton described Mr Andrews’ election promise as a “fantastic outcome”. Council has been supporting relocation of the Frankston Tennis Club to make way for the hospital expansion. The club occupies the crown land required for the project. “To ensure this 127 year old club’s rich history remains alive and well, council has developed plans for a proposed new multisport complex at Centenary Park in Langwarrin,” Cr Hampton said. “We have already committed $11 million towards delivering the project, but we still need state and federal governments to contribute an equal share which will give Frankston Tennis Club and Bayside Gymnastics Club a new home.”

Gas terminal application with govt Continued from Page 1 The lodging of documents by AGL and APA with Mr Wynne has seen an increase in efforts by Save Westernport campaigners to have the project scrapped. Spurred on by the imminent decision, Save Westernport is urging its supporters to seek publicity, encourage people to sign an online petition (which also “automatically emails” Mr Wynne) and hold up banners outside “community consultation sessions” held by AGL (7-9pm Tuesday 18 September at Hastings Hall, 3 High Street Hastings and 7-9pm Tuesday 25 September at Crib Point Community Hall, 7 Park Road). Cr Gill said he hoped the state government will not allow the applications by AGL and APA “to proceed without a thorough investigation of all ramifications involved in granting a permit”. “There are safety and pollution risks involved in the regasification process of imported liquefied gas on moored boats and also the discharge of chlorine into the United Nations environmentally-listed Western Port that haven’t been properly addressed,” Cr Gill told The News last week. “The close population of Crib Point are alarmed that the risk of explosion assessment is not available or independently verified. The 60 kilometre pipeline will run through thousands of hectares of prime agricultural and green wedge rural land putting the viability of farmers and essential food bowl products in jeopardy.” AGL’s media relations manager Garry West said announcing that the referrals for a gas import jetty and the Pakenham pipeline had been sent to

A PILE driving barge anchored at the Crib Point jetty where AGL wants to moor a floating 300 metre long import gas conversion terminal. The Port of Hastings Development Authority has said the jetty was in need of repair and renovation. Save Westernport member Chris Chandler said it was “very disappointing” that the PoHDA had closed public access to neighbouring Shelly Beach. “Also concerning is that pile-driving barge has arrived, trees have been marked for removal and other signs of work beginning at Crib Point, yet the AGL project has not been granted any approvals.”

Mr Wynne “is part of our commitment to ongoing community consultation”. Phaedra Deckart, AGL’s general manager of energy supply and origination, said the approach to Mr Wynne “is just one step in a long planning assessment process”. “In response to concerns raised by Environment Victoria and the local community the referrals have been submitted together to ensure the full impacts of the combined projects are considered,” she said. “The referrals provide a fulsome evaluation of the potential direct, indirect and cumulative impacts of the projects, in order to enable a comprehensive and integrated assessment of

the projects.” Ms Deckart said it was “important” to consider the fundamental need for the projects. “The project will create a new gas supply source, which will have the effect of providing much needed security of supply and placing downward pressure on prices,” she said. “Forecast gas supply shortfalls raise the prospect of higher and more volatile prices for Australian customers, reflecting competition for scarcer domestic gas supplies. “Gas can and is playing a critical role in providing stability to the electricity market and providing firm and flexible back-up electricity generation.”

Sewage flows to a Mt Eliza beach Stephen Taylor steve@mpnews.com.au SOUTH East Water crews were busy last week trying to repair a broken pipe which sent raw sewage cascading down the Earimil Steps escarpment into Earimil Creek. Mt Eliza resident Des Berry said he found a waterfall (“or should that be effluent fall”) of raw sewage on his regular beach walk Wednesday morning, 12 September, which flowed to the beach. “The dirty brown and very smelly discharge emanated from a broken sewage main at the top of the cliff near the Earimil lookout,” he said. “At the north end of Ranelagh beach [the] South East Water pumping station receives the sewage effluent from most of Mt Eliza. “Large pumps pump the water to the south of Ranelagh beach, then up the Earimil lookout steps to discharge into the main sewerage pipe and treatment plant then on to the ocean outfall into Bass Strait [at Gunnamatta].” Mr Berry, a member of the Mt Eliza Association for Environmental Care, said the effluent flowed when the sewage discharge pump was turned on. “However, the discharge rate is very high and I do not know how long it has been discharging,” he said. “The odour is very strong and there is significant residue of raw sewage embedded in the creek bottom down to the beach and into the bay. “I contacted the emergency call line for South East Water and asked them to turn off the pump. A man arrived 30 minutes later and said he was calling

out the crew to dam the creek at the beach and pump out the creek. “It is now too late and a significant amount of raw sewage remains in the creek and the sand on the foreshore.” South East Water’s manager network delivery John Hribar said the company “responded immediately to contain the spill and minimise any environmental impact”. He said the affected pipe connects to a pumping station servicing the area between Ballar and Earimil creeks, west of Nepean Highway. “The EPA, Melbourne Water and Mornington Peninsula Shire Council were notified and advisory signs and markers were placed in several locations in the area, restricting community access,” he said. “We encourage the community to be mindful of the temporary access restrictions.” Mr Hribar said workmen had repaired the failed pipe section and put in place an “ongoing monitoring program to assess the environmental impact”. “A thorough clean-up of the spill point is continuing and we apologise to the community for the spill and any inconvenience it has caused.” EPA manager southern metro Marleen Mathias said EPA officers had arranged with South East Water to have signs erected “alerting the community and advising them of the issue”. Warnings were also posted on the EPA’s Yarra and Bay websites. “South East Water is sampling at key points along the creek to assess the impact and the EPA will work with them to ensure public safety,” Mr Rees said.

Microbats explained

THEY might be among the most common animals in our backyards, but they are also among the least seen. Microbat expert Dr Casey Visintin will reveal much about these flying animals during a talk at the Australian Garden Auditorium, Cranbourne Gardens. Microbats are among the most common animals in our backyards and in bushland. They come out at night to feed on insects. Children are much more likely to hear their high-pitched squeaks at night than adults. Microbats use echo-location (sonar) to navigate and hunt and consume huge numbers of insects each night, including mosquitoes and other pest insects. Through the day they roost in tree hollows or crevices in tree bark. Dr Visintin will talk about these important animals and there will be an opportunity to see one or two living microbats up close. This lecture is in school holidays so children are welcome to bring along parents and grandparents. Bookings: www.rbgfriendscranbourne.org.au. Cost (including refreshments): members $20; nonmembers $25; students $10. The Australian Garden Auditorium is at Cranbourne Gardens, corner Botanic Drive and Ballarto roads Cranbourne.

With Stephen Taylor

Woman flees across freeway A WOMAN on the run after she and her male friend crashed a stolen car on the Frankston Freeway last week ran across eight lanes of traffic to escape police causing two cars to collide. Detective Senior Constable Ryan Collins, of Frankston CIU, said the couple was driving a stolen Nissan Pulsar towards Carrum Downs when they left the road and ran into a fence. Both jumped out and ran off towards the Eastlink turnoff, with other motorists reporting the incident to triple zero. Police set up a cordon to corral them but the woman, 31, allegedly ran off and it was only “dumb luck” which saved her from being run down on the freeway, Detective Collins said. When police arrested the Doveton woman, and the 21-year-old man, of no fixed address, they allegedly found stolen property in the car. The pair was charged with multiple counts of theft, including theft of alcohol from a BWS store. The man was charged with petrol drive offs and the woman with conduct endangering life. The stolen Nissan was extensively damaged and the two cars which collided on the freeway while attempting to avoid her were said to be moderately damaged. The pair faced Frankston Magistrates’ Court last week and was further remanded to appear on 24 September.

Surf rescue

AN experienced Pt Leo surfer paddled out to rescue a teenage girl stranded in choppy and gusty conditions last week. Hastings police Sergeant John Cannon said the girl, 18, got into trouble on her board at popular Suicide break just north of the Pt Leo Lifesaving Club, 12.45pm, Tuesday 11 September. She had been surfing with a friend when they

got into difficulties in the strong north wind and current and was exhausted. With conditions deteriorating, her companion managed to paddle ashore and alert authorities. The girl was unable to follow him. First Constable Daniel Crisp, of Hastings police, said the police helicopter arrived and did a fly over before reconfiguring for a winch rescue. As it hovered over the girl, and with up to 10 paramedics and ambulance crews waiting on the shore, the local surfer, 41, took the initiative. “He offered to help,” Constable Crisp said. “He made an active decision to go and get the girl and bring her in. He did what he could to help.” The hero didn’t wait around for pats on the back. “When he brought her in he walked off without giving his name, but I’m sure he was a local man,” Constable Crisp said. The girl was taken by ambulance to Frankston Hospital suffering hypothermia.

Fire takes hold

THREE suspects were seen trying to stamp out flames near a children’s playground at the Escarpment reserve, Frankston, 7.20pm, Wednesday 5 September. CFA crews which arrived to fight the small blaze found a soft drink bottle containing accelerant at the scene. Anyone with information is urged to contact Crime Stoppers 1800 333 000 or submit a confidential crime report at crimestoppersvic.com.au

Assault on trail

A MAN assaulted on the Peninsula Link Trail last week was later taken to The Alfred Hospital with head injuries. The assault occurred at 3.30am, Monday 10 September near Skye Road, Langwarrin. The 33-year-old Frankston man was said to be in a stable condition, Wednesday.

Telephone scam

A TELEPHONE scam targeting the southern suburbs has prompted police to warn residents to be wary.

People have contacted police to say they have received a phone call from a man claiming to be from the Australian Tax Office saying they have an outstanding tax debt. The caller says an arrest warrant is due over the unpaid tax debt and if they don’t pay they will be arrested. He then directs the victim to attend a specific ATM and deposit cash in a nominated bank account. For information on the latest scams police suggest you visit scamwatch.com.au To check if a call, email or SMS is from the ATO call 1800 008 540 to confirm.

Nature ‘heightens senses’ of Red Hill artist RED Hill artist Jennifer Riddle has been voted by exhibition visitors as the winner of the Mercury People’s Choice Award in the 2018 Hadley’s Art Prize, with her depiction of a Red Hill garden cloaked in mist. The $5000 prize was a welcome surprise to Riddle, who visited the exhibition during its opening in July when local artist Neil Haddon took out the $100,000 landscape prize with his War of the Worlds inspired artwork. The Hadley is considered to be the world’s richest landscape art prize. Riddle, who was also the recipient of the People’s Choice Award for the Glover Art Prize last year, said she has long been drawn to the Tasmanian landscape. “In recent years, my inspiration has been shared between the pastoral surroundings of my home [at Red Hill] and the evocative wilderness of the Tasmania’s remote southwest,” she said. “I have no doubt that this award will be reinvested back into Tasmania’s economy as I plan further exploration across the beautiful state.” Riddle said her motivation to paint came from nature’s ability to heighten the senses. “When painting Verdant Garden the damp air was infused with the scent of the wooded forest ... but I could no longer see its familiar form,” she said. “Where towering eucalypts usually shadowed the land, a wall of white hung silently in the air, swallowing the landscape I knew so well. “The landscape depicted is a local neighbouring paddock in Red Hill, an DECKING

area that holds great emotional significance to my development as both an artist and as a person.” Riddle said she had recently been involved as a mentor for the green wedge art prize that was run through Mornington Peninsula Shire. “I’m a keen advocate for sharing our peninsula’s hinterland and the environmental importance of maintaining our green wedge from damaging developments,” she said. “I hope my work can help highlight the importance of our natural surroundings.” The artist moved to the Mornington Peninsula after the death of her sister, Andrea, hoping to fulfil her creative aspirations and find comfort. “I needed to be among the trees and I needed to fulfil my longing to paint,” she said. “Never had I ever felt such certainty. I feel that this was a direct result of Andrea’s loving encouragement before she died. “This experience gave me a new way of seeing the land, a deeper connection and gratitude that helped heal and fulfil my spiritual self.” Hadley’s Art Prize curator Dr Amy Jackett said she was pleased with the high number of visitors to the exhibition. Although different artworks resonated with each person, Riddle’s piece won with an overwhelming number of votes. “Verdant Garden was a standout for viewers of all ages and was, interestingly, the artwork most admired by visiting school groups,” Dr Jackett said.

Nature forces rethink on cliff works Keith Platt keith@mpnews.com.au UNEXPECTED erosion has caused delays and a change in engineers’ plans to protect crumbling cliffs at Mt Martha North beach. The use of a geotextile sand tube was abandoned after several storms in June and July. Instead, the wall designed to prevent further erosion at the base of the cliff will be built solely using geotextile blankets and rocks. Sand will still be imported from the beach north of the Balcombe Estuary “to top up the beach and inhibit undermining of the [cliff] toe”, according to the Department of Environment, Land, Water and Planning. Beach box owners have been told the beach is closed and they cannot repair their property - on Crown Land leased through Mornington Peninsula Shire while the cliff works are underway. Many of the beach boxes are either sagging or leaning and some have stumps that are hanging above ground. Several have been demolished. However, the $880,000 works currently underway and expected to be completed this month, are only seen as a temporary solution to erosion problems at the beach. Consultants Water Technology has been hired to assess the four long term solutions identified in its 2017 report which warned that the continued erosion could eventually effect the Esplanade above Mt Martha North Beach (“Beach repairs could cost $4m” The News 30/10/17). The report recommended removing all boat sheds at Mt Martha north un-

less action was taken to stop further erosion of the cliff and beach. Options contained in the report include building rock walls and groynes across the beach or an offshore breakwater to slow the loss of thousands of cubic metres of sand needed to “renourish” the beach. “An analysis of the four engineering recommendations will assess the environmental, social, technical and cost of each option, to determine which are the most feasible to model in detail,” the latest “stakeholder update” issued by the DELWP states. “Following a series of storms and persistent northerly and north-westerly winds in June and July, erosion on the beach was so severe that clay and bedrock were exposed. This resulted in an amendment to the design, because the geotextile sand tube could not be placed at the more southerly end as the sand would have washed away with the tides,” the update stated. “This section has instead been constructed solely of rock and geotextile. It is possible that only rock will be encapsulated in the geotextile in the northerly section as well.” “Tension cracks” in the cliff had necessitated “emergency trimming of the cliff face” in late August. “These cracks were deemed at risk of collapse during placement of the rocks if not manually removed. “Traditional Owner representatives were on site to inspect the removed material for cultural heritage values, but nothing of significance was identified. The works were completed under supervision of geotechnical engineers.”

HEAVY earthmoving equipment being used built a rock wall to protect the base of eroding cliffs at Mt Martha North beach, top; rolls of geotextile cloth are being incorporated in the structure, above; and beach box owners have been told to stay away from their properties, some of which are leaning sideways of have stumps left high and dry by erosion.

Decade of service: Acting operations manager Andrew Turner, Mark Bainbridge, Marcus Grinblat, Sheena Grinblat, Peter Swan, Jean Brake, Bryan Phelan, and the CFA’s Matthew Pond. Picture: Supplied

Volunteers celebrate 10 years of service WHILE it’s more common to see CFA volunteers fighting fires in the bush, their Coast Guard counterparts are also around to keep boaties safe when there’s smoke on the water. This year, the Coast Guard volunteers are celebrating 10 years of protecting bays and waterways on the water, and by supporting their CFA land-based firefighting counterparts. The Coast Guard in Victoria began in 1961, with volunteers having the choice of training in marine firefighting for the past decade. Most flotillas are now also CFA brigades, with volunteers trained and prepared to battle all water-based incidents. Volunteers complete a marine firefighting course run by the CFA, primarily based on structural firefighting training but adapted to fit the marine environment. Coast Guard Frankston Brigade members recently recognised inau-

gural members with 10-year badges. They are Squadron Commodore Mark Bainbridge, Marcus Grinblat, Sheena Grinblat, Peter Swan, Jean Brake and Bryan Phelan. John Hall and Jim Teika also received 10-year awards but were not at the ceremony. Volunteers from several flotillas also received emergency service medals for the efforts during the Black Saturday fires. Coast Guard Frankston Brigade Captain Les Ingram said volunteers were called to a “surprisingly diverse range of incidents – and it’s getting busier every year”. As with their land-based CFA colleagues, Coast Guard volunteers become busier as the weather gets warmer. “Once the season starts and the fish start biting we can have the pager going off on a daily basis,” Captain Ingram said. The fully-volunteer brigade covers

all aspects of marine safety, including search and rescue, breakdowns, sinking boats, boat fires, missing swimmers and people knocked overboard. The brigades carry fire pumps and ancillary equipment on their boats, which are about to be upgraded under a new government funding program. If needed, the Coast Guard can take CFA members to marine fires and the trained Coast Guard volunteers can also add to the CFA’s surge capacity and respond to major disasters on land. They also take part in training with land-based CFA crews. Traditionally, Coast Guard brigades have been predominantly male, but at Frankston a recent recruitment campaign led to six new female volunteers among 15 recruits. The season will officially kick off with the blessing of the brigade’s fleet on 28 October. Stephen Taylor

‘Crime hotspot’ at station Brodie Cowburn brodie@baysidenews.com.au THE Victorian coalition have made an election promise to expand the Protective Services Officers program to provide additional PSOs to Frankston and Mordialloc train stations between 10am and 6pm. Up to 20 stations identified as “daytime crime hotspots” will receive 100 additional transit PSOs on a new dayshift roster if the Liberal Nationals win the November state election. “A Liberal Nationals Government will make Victoria safer. We are going to put more police on the beat and more PSOs at train stations. If we are going to encourage more people to use more public transport then we need to make sure users are safe and

feel safe,” Leader of the opposition Matthew Guy MP said. Frankston Liberal candidate Michael Lamb, a Police Senior Sergeant, said that he has “dedicated my entire career to keeping people safe and locking away criminals and I am passionate about our community, which is why I’m fighting hard to get more local funding for frontline police and PSOs.” Frankston has been a political battleground recently, with a number of election promises made in the last week aiming to swing voters. The Premier, leader of the opposition, and Prime Minister have visited the region in the last two weeks. The seat of Frankston is one of the most marginal in the state, and was decided by just 336 votes at the last state election.

Consolidating crime stats hides real story In an effort to reduce Victoria’s overall crime rate numbers the state government, instead of addressing the issue of law and order, has instead decided to play games with how crime numbers are reported. In the past, when multiple offences occurred, they were reported as such. My understanding of the current revised process is that when multiple offences occur, they are now reported as one incident. To give an idea of how that can skew the statistics, I’ll use the recent incident which occurred in Rosebud where a man went on a rampage, stabbed a female ambulance worker, smashed a nearby car, stole another car, smashed that car, and in the process, attacked and threatened local shopkeepers. Five major crimes were committed, but on the Crime Statistics Agency Victoria website they will most likely be reported as one incident. So while the stats show that our overall criminal incidents are down 10.9 per cent, this number is highly questionable. With a population nearing 6.3 million, and with 5876 total incidents reported per 100,000 of population - even with the dodgy figures, that’s a staggering 370,188 “incidents” in the past year alone. I can only imagine what the number would be had the figures not been consolidated from multiple offences to one incident reporting. Instead of playing with numbers in an effort to lull us into a false sense of security, the government should throw its efforts into arresting, charging and jailing offenders, especially repeat offenders. Chris Spillane, Blairgowrie

Look back for new CEO I read the news that the Mornington Peninsula Shire CEO[Carl Cowie] had agreed to a transfer to Nillumbik shire with an appropriate negotiated payout (“Shire in hunt for new boss after CEO calls time” The News 3/9/18). Was he pushed or did he jump? Now that we ratepayers don’t have to be embarrassed when we have to explain that our CEO was paid almost a half a million dollars a year, and that he had successfully negotiated an office in Melbourne CBD because the shire couldn’t attract high quality administrators to relocate and enjoy the benefits of a non-suburban coastal environment, I am a little more reassured that our increased rates (whether from waste management charges 22 per cent increase allied to the large re-evaluation of our properties’ rateable values so that shire can collect more of our discretionary income cum savings) will maintain more balanced future shire budgets. Perhaps now the shire will concentrate on getting a CEO who wants to reside locally and make a long term commitment. Pity the shire can’t convince the previous COO Alison Leighton to return and carry on the excellent job she did. Ian Morrison, Mt Eliza Community Alliance

Shire’s city office Now [Mornington Peninsula Shire’s] CEO [Carl Cowie] has moved on to a new postion, what happens to the office in Melbourne related to costs? Is it going to be used or left empty or is Mr Cowie still using it since it’s close to his new job? Glenn Body, Mt Martha Editor: Known as the shire’s planning services office, the Melbourne was given a “soft” opening in August and is mainly used by the shire’s planning staff. The shire intends to enable members of the public to make appointments to meet with planners at the office.

The ‘yes’ minister It was enlightening to read of MP Luke Donnellan’s enthusiastic support for AGL’s floating gas factory at Crib Point: “The proposal will go through a full environment effects statement process, and that will be done properly and appropriately” (“Govt support for gas plan” The News 21/8/18).

It’s revealing because it is the first statement that it will definitely be subject to a full EES and is extraordinary that it has come from the ports minister rather than the decision maker, Planning Minister Richard Wynne or even Environment, Energy and Climate Change Minister Lily D’Ambrosio. Last August, it was the Premier [Daniel Andrews] and Ms D’Ambrosio who announced this “game changing” proposal, that it would put “downward pressure on prices” and be a jobs boost for Crib Point. AGL cannot guarantee that the cost of gas will go down because the LNG is imported subject to purchase at international market prices. Worse still, the imported LNG is primarily destined for SA power stations and NSW. The remainder available to other users: residential, commercial and other power plants. As for the jobs promise - a total of 40 permanent technical and specialised jobs on the floating terminal. How many people in Crib Point have the necessary skills? AGL has previously stated that if the gas market changed, the floating terminal would be redundant. Australia’s Energy Market Operator reported in June that a shortage is no longer forecast. Yet AGL perseveres. The only “game changing” aspects about this scheme are the negative social impact on residents near Crib Point jetty, the noise and light pollution, the environmental risk and the disruption to the sensitive local ecology and marine mammals. Oh, but I forget, the true primary purpose of this ill-advised major gas infrastructure – even more profit for AGL. Louise Page, Crib Point

Safety hazards It was great to see so many local residents from the Mornington Peninsula travel to Fitzroy to meet Richard Wynne (“Govt support for gas plan” The News 28/8/18). Mr Wynne is the Minister for Planning and he will soon be making important decisions about the proposed AGL floating gas terminal at Crib Point - such as recommending an environmental effects statement (EES) from AGL. Although the visit was unannounced, Mr Wynne was gracious with his time and he acknowledged the community’s concerns about the AGL gas project. I hope he will filter out the AGL propaganda about “... downward pressure on gas prices…” and focus on the safety hazards of the FSRU LNG vessel and the potential risks to Western Port that will affect everybody, from fishermen to international tourists. The clean, green reputation of the Mornington Peninsula is too valuable to put at risk so that AGL can import LNG and sell it to NSW and South Australia ahead of Victorians - who will pay the ultimate price if an industrial accident happens at Crib Point jetty. Dale Stohr, Crib Point

Hard questions avoided Kelly Parkinson’s attempt to placate peninsula concerns about the dangerous and environmentally destructive proposal to import liquid gas through Crib Point, could almost be classed as fiction (“Gas an important part of the energy mix - AGL” The News 27/8/18). Firstly, the state government clearly stated there is no gas shortage in Victoria. Secondly, gas as a fuel for energy is still producing large quantities of CO2, admittedly less than coal, but it is not environmentally friendly as he seems to suggest. Thirdly, AGL’s record of environmental and community care is very questionable, as the many fines and reprimands around Australia by responsible authorities seem to suggest. And when it comes to the community consultations and reports on its website, many of the hard questions can very often not be answered or are brushed aside. Documents on its website are ever changing and some previously stated facts seem to magically disappear. The many authorities quoted by Mr Parkinson who will have oversight of this venture show

how much AGL really cares about our environment, because nowhere is a mention of environmental authorities or the EPA or the UNESCO Ramsar organisation. I just hope the state government wakes up and takes notice of the local community’s concerns and puts a stop to this madness. Rupert Steiner, Balnarring Beach

Reopen Hazelwood A recent noteworthy news item is the sudden resignation of the chief of AGL, the electricity and gas company which is arrogantly proceeding with the Crib Point infrastructure for a floating gas terminal before any government approvals, permits, or permissions are granted. What is going on in the upper echelons of AGL (or indeed the state government) is a mystery, but it lends hope that the project may be abandoned. AGL has a stated policy of closing down all of its coal-fired electricity generators and using only wind or solar; never mind what the government policy is. It is unbelievable that a private company can dictate to a government. A French company closed down an essential service, the Hazelwood power station. It is becoming clear that, if you remove all subsidies, hyperbole, misinformation and brainwashed beliefs; solar and wind structures are the least efficient, most costly, most unreliable, least engineering elegant, source of power for a State electricity power grid. Hazelwood power station should have been completely re-built using modern technology, 300 billion tonnes of our own in-ground brown coal and be owned, operated and profiteered by the state. It still can be. If we have power blackouts because it was closed down, there will be hell to pay. The recent self-destruction of the Liberal party will be dwarfed in comparison. Brian A Mitchelson, Mornington

Inappropriate planning I use buses almost every day and want to praise the drivers of the 781, 784 and 785. They have to work under particularly difficult circumstances, due to the planning errors made in the redevelopment at the Frankston station precinct. Many thousands of taxpayer dollars were spent on the recent makeover, but the road was designed to be too narrow resulting in a problem when one bus cannot pull out easily from behind another. I was advised that the planners measured the width of two buses, but they didn’t take the turning distance into account. On some occasions passengers are dropped a long distance from the station due to the aforementioned reasons, which never happened before this upgrade. The bus shelters are far too small, seating four people, and for a major transport hub this is a joke. The large area for seating is too far from the bus stops to be any use at all and has no shelter. The people responsible for this poor planning should be held to account. I expect if they had been spending their own cash they would have taken more care. Maureen Piper, Mt Eliza

Liberal ‘lunacy’ Revenge politics is ghastly. To find that those that created the havoc in the Liberal Party have been rewarded is lunacy. The big loser other than the outgoing popular prime minister is surely Julie Bishop. While I don’t subscribe to her political views, she has done an amazing job as foreign minister, according to most commentators. She must be totally devastated at her bid to lead the Liberal Party. To only received 11 votes in the ballot for the leadership tells a story in itself. Unable to get votes from her Western Australia colleagues must have hurt. Is misogyny alive and well in the Liberal Party? One has to ask the question. Only 11 women are in the new cabinet, ministry and outer ministry. Shame. It seems it is mostly a recycled bunch of right wing troglodytes that won. I’m so so glad [Home Affairs Minister Peter] Dutton didn’t succeed. [Labor leader] Bill Shorten would have had a hard time campaigning against a popular Julie Bishop if she had attained the top job. The question of a female prime minister from

the Liberal Party is now even further away. Denise Hassett, Mt Martha

Swinging times An incredible 29 per cent swing against the Liberal party occurred in the Wagga by-election recently and the super-Saturday by-election in Longman was a debacle for the Liberal Party. Voters are punishing politicians for poor performance, and it’s about time. The Mornington Peninsula should not be immune to this response by voters. A week is a long time in politics and we write off catastrophic failures regularly, recall “Direct Action”, [Flinders MP] Greg Hunt’s energy and climate policy sold to us as a saviour where in reality it only served to fuel the party’s interests, a total failure. Now this Muppet show in Canberra with the axing of a sitting prime minister. Where was our representative Greg Hunt? He was in the middle of this saga, resigning, backing the Peter Dutton coup, failing and then scrambling back for his [cabinet] seat under the new leader. Is this how we expect our politicians to behave? The majors do not deserve our trust. Elections are coming up on the peninsula and voters have had enough. It’s time for change and new representation on the peninsula. Kelvin Stingel, convener, Mornington Peninsula Greens

Sensible policies As a fellow grandparent I am appalled at the vile and misleading nonsense written by Patricia Rayner regarding Australia’s present border protection policies (“Fascist actions” Letters 28/8/18). People are not kept on Nauru against their will. Anybody can return from whence they came, along with their children, at Australian taxpayers’ expense. What they are not permitted to do is sneak into this country through the back door, by paying people smugglers in some place like Indonesia, which seems to be what Patricia Rayner is espousing. Such foolhardiness would lead to loss of control of our borders and result in the chaotic and disastrous situation in which much of Europe now finds itself. That is not the sort of Australia of the future I want for my grandchildren. Michael Long, Frankston

Bring refugees As a country we have cheered when the boys in Thailand were rescued from the cave, and we have rejoiced when a small child was found alive in the earthquake rubble in Lombok. And rightly so. But for the past five years Australia has been responsible for many refugee children on Nauru gradually dying of loss of hope and the detrimental effects of detention on their lives and on their families lives. There has been very little publicity, reporters are not welcomed on Nauru. There are currently 110 children on Nauru. More reports again show the deplorable situation these children experience every day. It is time that our government and opposition put aside political games and gave leadership. We demand that the people-men women and children in offshore detention be brought to Australia. They have suffered enough. No more inappropriate or unreasonable or unrealistic excuses to maintain them in a limbo situation off shore. It is time to bring them here as soon as possible. Ann Renkin, Shoreham

Visitors should pay I noticed more road works due to the increased traffic due to the annual influx of visitors. We ratepayers spend a lot of dollars in support of these tourrorists, including a large chunk of change in the regressive “waste service charge” included in our rates. I have been badgering Mornington Peninsula Shire for 10 years to do something to make sure they pay their fair share of the costs they create. My latest detailed proposal would allow the shire to collect $20 million each year from the seasonal tourrorist incursion (only $5 a day a car). Of course it might be hard for them to comprehend as it is a little out-of-the-box thinking looking at available hi-tech methods. There is an opportunity here to set up a private partnership where this strategy would deliver dividends for years to come. Joe Lenzo, Safety Beach

THE MEANING OF EXISTENCE... AND OTHER SHORT STORIES

One Ronnie and a Night To Remember By Stuart McCullough IT was a perfect surprise. Apparently, my niece suspected nothing until she was on her way. Her mother was taking her to a Katy Perry concert. There are times when anticipation makes an event, when it finally rolls around, that much sweeter, but nothing beats the sheer shock and awe that comes from a surprise. These are the events that stick in the memory. Forever. I should know; my father unleashed his fair share of surprises when I was growing up. My father didn’t take me to see Katy Perry. There are several reasons for this, not least of which is the fact of her not being born yet. Besides, my father has never really trusted pop music. In 1964, he was working as a teacher in London and was asked ‘Sir, what do you think of the Beatles?’ His reply constitutes one of the most spectacular misjudgments in modern history, as he stated ‘We would never tolerate that kind of rubbish in Australia.’ Weeks later, the Beatles played in Melbourne and footage of tens of thousands of adoring fans was beamed back to Britain. He is yet to concede that he got it wrong. Whilst he wasn’t much for the Beatles, he was a big fan of the comedy stylings of ‘The Two Ronnies’. For those who’ve never experienced ‘The Two Ronnies’, it was a sketch comedy show that featured two blokes called Ronnie and was a mix of amusing skits, music and (quite frankly) what would now be regarded as a disturbing level of innuendo. It was run on the ABC every weekend for what seemed to be the best part of two decades.

Ronnie Corbett was touring Australia. I was somehow completely oblivious to this fact but my father was totally onto it. One Sunday evening, he announced that he and I were going

down the street to get more milk. ‘Going down the street’ in Tyabb was no small event. It was something that required a car as it’s way too far to walk. I doubt I would have come quietly - I

probably complained at being torn away from the television. I have no idea what, if anything, he said to me as we drove up the drive in the Nissan E-20 and turned on to Coolart Road. Doubtless, I would have become suspicious when we sailed past the turn-off for Tyabb and kept driving onwards. I probably said something extremely helpful like, ‘You missed the turn off’. It may have been then that he revealed that we were, in fact, going to see one half of the Two Ronnies in concert. I should have been excited but I was probably worried as to how my mother would react when we returned home without milk. Picking a support act for a British comedy legend is no easy task. For reasons that will forever remain unclear, those organizing this tour chose Joey Perrone for the support slot. Nothing against Joey. It’s more that as a former cast member of Young Talent Time, it was hard to see the link between him and Ronnie Corbett. It was like having Tiny Tim do the warm up for the Melbourne Symphony Orchestra or a juggler opening for Metallica. Not that Joey was without support of his own. Indeed, there were four or five girls there that night who were clearly there for Joey and Joey only. They had knitted jumpers with his name on them. Anyone can buy a tour t-shirt. It takes dedication to show your devotion through knitwear. The concert was at the Arts Centre. Which is a long way from either of Tyabb’s milkbars. Joey performed valiantly to a room that, with a small number of notable exceptions, was not wearing knitwear emblazoned with his

name. His fans, however, were on their feet the entire time. Which is incredibly courageous when there’s only four or five of you and everybody else is sitting down. Joey did a great and professional job, but there was little doubt who (most of) the audience was there to see. It was a big room, but we were right up close. Which, given his diminutive stature, was just as well. And Ronnie, it must be said, was totally awesome. To see someone from television standing up there on stage was an out of body experience for me. My father and I, along with everyone else who hadn’t come just to see Joey Perrone laughed uproariously. I don’t remember much about that night other than it was fantastic. The trip home in the Nissan E-20 would have taken ages, but I can’t recall if I fell asleep or spent the entire trip home retelling all the jokes I’d just heard. Recapping, so I’m told, is something of a family trait. I think that, above everything else, it felt like a special event just for me. When you’re part of a family with lots of siblings, those moments are few and far between. I asked my niece what she thought of Katy Perry. Quite a lot, as it turned out. Seems the concert was a spectacular experience she’ll remember forever. I told her that I’d once gone to a surprise concert to see Ronnie Corbett, regarded as many as the Katy Perry of his day. I’m not sure she believed me. Not that it matters. Surprise is a wonderful thing. stuart@stuartmccullough.com

100 YEARS AGO THIS WEEK...

Mr A. Downward ‘indisposed’ after death of daughter Compiled by Brodie Cowburn MR. A. Downward,. M. L. A., is seriously indisposed at his residence, Mornington, and his medical adviser has enjoined complete rest. Last week Mr. Downard suffered a painful shock owing to the sudden death of his second daughter, Ethel, from heart trouble. *** A PUBLIC meeting of the residents of Seaford will be held this (Saturday) evening to consider the matter of selecting a school site. *** THE sale of Mr Stanley’s property at Bittern, advertised in last issue to take place on September 21st, will now be held on October 5th. Particulars will appear next issue. *** MISS Lillie M Tulloch has been appointed first assistant in the Frankston School, in place of Mis D. Keane, who has been appointed to a similar position at Clayton. *** THE usual monthly meeting of all the members of the Frankston Progress Association will be held at the Mechanics at 5pm on Friday, 27th Sep. *** SGT. W McMahon, who has been on the recruiting staff at Dandenong for some time, has resigned his position, and has leased the Flinders hotel at Flinders, which he takes over immediately. *** THE children of the Frankston School succeeded so well in their effort to help the Caulfield Hospital that they dispatched six boxes of miscellaneous

goods, including 61 dozen eggs. The Head Master, wishes to thank the parents for their generous cooperation. *** AN old resident in the person of Mrs Samuel Sherlock, passed peacefully away at the residence of her daughter, Mrs G. W. Baxter, on Monday last at the ripe old age of 85 years. Deceased, was the relict of, the late Samuel Sherlock, of Mornington, and was the mother of Mr. Andrew Sherlock, Capt Samuel Sherlock, Mrs G. W. Baxter, Mrs Hugh Cameron, and the late Mrs W. R. Frame. The funeral took place on Wednesday, the mortal remains being laid to rest in the Frankston cemetery. The mortuary arrangements were carried out by Mr H. Gamble. *** CR MURRAY received word on Saturday that his son, Fred, had been awarded the Military Medal. Fred received shrapnel wounds in the cheek some little time ago. This was the fourth time he had been wounded. *** KEEN interest is being shown in the Queen Competition started in connection with the Japanese Fair. The closing date has been fixed for October 9th, when the crowning will take place in the Somerville Hall. Close competition between the two leading queens is in evidence, and there is a rumour that a dark horse may yet win. The final figures are awaited with great curiosity. ***

THE news of the sudden death of Mr Charles W. Murray on Friday evening, September 13th, came as a shock to his many friends, as although he had been suffering for some time from the effects of a paralytic stroke, his health seemed to be improving and no one imagined the end was so near. Deceased, who was a baker by trade, bad been in business at Langwarrin, Lilydale, Maldon and West Australia, and it was at the latter place that he had the stroke that so vitally undermined his constitution. From this he recovered sufficiently to be enabled to undertake the journey back here, and since arriving a few months ago had seemed to improve. During his residence here the deceased had filled many honorary public positions, such as superintendent of the Methodist Sunday School, President and Hon. Sec. Langwarrin Progress Association, and Correspondent of the State School Committee. The funeral took place on Sunday afternoon and was largely attended, part of the burial service bing held at the Methodist church. Deceased who was 53 years of age, leaves a widow, one son and two daughters to mourn their great loss. *** THE anniversary concert of the Methodist Sunday School, held at the church on Monday evening, September 16th, attracted a very large attendance. The weather was all that could he desired, and this, with the pleasure that is associated with children performers made the event a decideIy

success. A lengthy programme was carried through, followed by a coffee supper. *** The Great Ocean Road. The Trust which is controlling this movement, have now made an actual start by employing a survey party on the section which it is proposed to take in hand first, viz. Cape Patten to Lorne (a distance of 18 miles.) The whole road when completed is to connect up Warrnambool and Barwon Heads (14 miles from Geelong) by means of a road running as near to the ocean as the surveyors consider practicable. Some portions of road which already exist here and there will be availed of, and other portions have been taken over by the Country Roads Board, but there still remain about 100 miles to be constucted, the estimated cost of which is £150,000 It is proposed to raise this money by voluntary subscriptions. The road is to be a permanent and lasting memorial to all Victorian soldiers with memorial bridges over the various streams so that everyone who drives along this road will be reminded of the brave men who defended our shores. Every position in connection with the construction of the road is to be first offered o the physically fit and suitable returned soldiers through the Repatriation Department and it is anticipated that when the war is over a large number of suitable men will be returning. The five men who are now at work in connection with the survey are all

returned soldiers, and were engaged through the Repatriation Department. On arrival at Apollo Bay (the nearest town at present to their work) a public welcome was accorded to them in the public hall by 300 of the residents, who filed the building to the doors. Warrant Officer Hassent, a capable and experienced surveyor who is in charge of the party, thanked the residents for their very cordial and enthusiastic welcome and said they were out to prove that returned soldiers were not afraid of work, and that they did not wish to “sponge “on the Country. A resident of Cape Patten (Mr Ramsden) has lent the party a house, rent free, and altogether the men are delighted with their work and with their congenial surroundings so close to the ocean. The Great Ocean Road Trust propose to have a Cinema picture 2000 feet long taken at Xmas time, and featuring at the principal beauty spots on the ocean route between Barwon Heads and Warrnambool including waterfalls and fern gullies at Lorne, the Loch Ard Gorge and the Blow Hole at Port Campbell, the Bay of Islands at Petersborough, surf bathing at Torquay, motor boating at Barwon Heads, fishing at Anglesea and Airey’s Inlet. etc. The cost of the picture is estimated at £150 is afterwards proposed to show it all over Australia. *** From the pages of the Mornington Standard, 21 September 1918

After the siren score means Pines delight DIVISION ONE

By Brodie Cowburn PINES have scored with a kick after the siren to claim a thrilling encounter with Sorrento and take out the 2018 MPNFL Division One Premiership in one of the greatest games in local football history. There was plenty of pregame drama before a ball was even bounced, as Chris Dawes was surprisingly named in the side despite an injury last week and Beau Hendry was named after narrowly escaping suspension during the week. James Hallahan kicked the first goal of the afternoon for the Sharks, which was badly needed to settle nerves. Both teams had showed nerves by hitting the post from easy position before the captain’s opening goal. Daniel Grant was then handed a lucky 50m penalty to kick Sorrento’s second and extend their lead. Nick Corp kicked Sorrento’s third unanswered goal from out of nowhere, rushing a snap from a pack situation to inflict more misery on the Pythons. The quick starting Sharks were surprising to watch given their lackluster starts to matches in the latter half of the season. Leigh Poholke soon added another to put the Sharks 27 points ahead late in the first term. The second quarter started poorly for Pines, as Leigh Poholke notched another goal for the Sharks less than 30 seconds into the second term. Aaron Edwards finally broke the Pines’ goal drought when he converted his set shot at goal, but the Pythons still trailed by four goals. Edwards quickly added another and the Pines were starting to work their way back into contention after their nervy start. A strong run and another Aaron Edwards goal took the Pines within a point before Perry Lewis Smith put them in front. Sorrento struck first blood in the second half and took back the lead, with the Hallahan brothers starting to influence the game in a major way. Just as Sorrento were starting to take control, Pines stunned their opponents with a brilliant run of momentum. Tom McDermott came alive, kicking three straight goals to hand his side the lead on the stroke of three-quarter time and send the Pines fans into a frenzy.

Brendan Barfoot booted an early goal in the final term to stretch the Pythons’ lead to 11. Leigh Poholke struck back to put Sorrento within 5 points, before Marcus Gardner put Sorrento in front with ten minutes to play. Just as Sorrento got their noses in front, the lead changed hands again when Shaun White was handed a downfield free kick and converted his shot. Controversy struck when Guy Hendry appeared to take a mark at centre half back, but was called play on. The resulting turnover saw the ball sent towards a waiting Leigh Poholke in the goalsquare, who put the Sharks up by a point with a little over five minutes to play. A behind soon saw the scores levelled, before Marcus Gardner turned hero again to dribble home a major with time ticking away. For every goal Sorrento scored though, Pines had an answer, as Nick Boswell thumped home a stunning goal from distance to square things up once again. With scores level, Aaron Ludewig took a mark inside fifty as the siren sounded. With a deafening crowd behind him, Ludewig slotted the most important behind in MPNFL history. His minor score clinched the game and the premiership for the Pythons. The game had a controversial build up after Pines ruckman Beau Hendry was sent to the tribunal during the week. Hendry was referred to the tribunal after he allegedly stomped on the head of Sorrento’s Luke Tapscott in the first final these sides played. The incident occurred following a fiery fracas in a game full of spotfire incidents. Hendry was found guilty and suspended for two weeks, ruling him out of the Grand Final. Pines made the decision to appeal, and Hendry was found not guilty on a technicality.

History awaits young Southern stars SOCCER

By Craig MacKenzie SOUTHERN United will lay claim to having the best under-14 squad in Victoria if it wins next weekend’s grand final and records an historic second successive double. Last year the side coached by former Matilda and FFV Hall of Famer Deb Nichols and former Langwarrin, South Melbourne and Casey Comets keeper Emma Bracken won the under-13 NPLW championship and Grand Final. That cemented their status as the premier outfit in Victoria’s elite underage competition. This season the squad clinched the under-14 title in August and on Saturday defeated Victorian powerhouse South Melbourne 3-2 at Monterey Reserve in the under-14 semis to reach the 2018 grand final. Southern’s date with destiny arrives at 10am next Saturday at ABD Stadium in Broadmeadows against Calder United who defeated Bulleen 4-3 in last weekend’s other semi. For Calder it’s a shot at redemption having gone down 2-0 to Southern in last year’s grand final with goals from Taylah Hennekam and Candy Kilderry, who remain important cogs in Southern’s machine. Not only do the Southern girls have a chance to write themselves into the record books but they also are tasked with maintaining the club’s record of winning a Grand Final in every year of its existence having won the under-15 premiership in 2016 in the inaugural year of the NPLW competition. But Southern had to use a get-outof-jail card last Saturday after facing a setback in the 5th minute when Ivana Demaria broke quickly and was brought down inside the area. Demaria converted from the resultant penalty to make it 1-0. Southern equalised in the 20th minute from a long-range Alex Jones free kick which sailed over the head of South Melbourne keeper Anastacia Samaras and it was 1-1 at the interval. South Melbourne hit the front in the 46th minute through an Alessandra Davis own goal but Rhys McKenna capitalised on poor defending three minutes later to make it 2-2 from close range.

Hennekam’s long-range strike six minutes from time settled the issue. Nichols is acutely aware that Southern will need to perform at a much higher level if it is to win next weekend. “Calder’s beaten us twice this season and we won the other game so it’s got to be a very up week for us if we’re going to go back-to-back,” said Nichols. “We’ve spoken about how they will probably watch a replay of last year’s grand final to drive home the point that they don’t want to feel that way again. “We’ll only train twice this week but we’ll work on being tighter at the back because we’re going to have to be.” Meanwhile Southern technical director Harry Chalkitis is conducting a review of the club’s onfield structure and plans to submit his findings and recommendations to the committee next week. A number of coaching positions need to be filled for next season with John Meads stepping down from his highly successful stint as under-12s coach to become more involved in the club’s Skill Acquisition Program. Former Skye United senior women’s reserve coach Ernie Cerda has been linked with Southern as has Washington

Castillo who coached Skye’s under-16 boys this season. In NPL2 news Langwarrin expects to select a senior assistant to Scott Miller this week. Expressions of interest closed last Friday and it’s believed that five candidates applied. Miller and technical director Stephen Fisher will vet the applicants and the successful candidate will become involved in selecting an under-20s coach, a process expected to be finalised next week. The under-20s job was vacated by Kevin “Squizzy” Taylor a few weeks back and has attracted seven applicants for a post Miller views as a second assistant’s role. It’s believed that Langwarrin has spoken to former Melbourne Victory midfielder Callum Goulding. He walked out on Langy partway through last season and joined NPL rival Box Hill United but there’s a strong rumour that the club is considering recruiting him for a second time in less than a year. Langy held its players’ player of the year and its annual presentation nights

last weekend. Senior players’ player of the year was goalkeeper Robbie Acs and Johnny Kuol was runner-up while Alex Whyte won the under-20s equivalent with Keegan Guy runner-up. Andy McLean’s outstanding season was recognised when he won the club’s best and fairest award with Kuol runnerup. The under-20s best and fairest was Cedric Benza with Whyte and Travis Ernsdoerfer joint runners-up. Sean Skelly won the club person of the year award. The big news in State 1 South-East is Mornington’s capture of striker Amir Osmancevic from NPL outfit Northcote. Ironically the 23-year-old will line up next season against recently promoted Doveton, the club which gave him his senior debut before he spent a year in the Balkans with Sloga Kraljevo and NK Zagreb then returned to Australia and joined Peninsula Strikers in 2015. He switched to Dandenong Thunder for the 2016 season and has since played for Dandenong City, Moreland Zebras and Pascoe Vale. He joined Northcote midway through

the 2018 season. In State 3 South-East news Skye’s United’s players’ player of the year was Daniel Wals. Frank Dimu was player’s player of the year in the reserves and Marcus Anastasiou runner-up. In State 4 South news Mitchell Ball will apply for the vacant senior coaching role at Baxter. Roy Kilner quit the post at season’s end and will not be returning. “I’m quite happy to throw my hat in the ring but if a more experienced candidate came along then I’m quite prepared to work alongside him and learn,” Ball said. He might get his wish as former Peninsula Strikers and Brandon Park head coach George Hughes is understood to be on Baxter’s radar. Former Langy assistant Ronnie Whitton had been linked with the Baxter job but he is expected to join an NPL club this week after also being in the frame for coaching jobs at Berwick City and Hampton Park United. A handful of experienced Baxter players are believed to be considering a move to Somerville which finished fourth in State 5 South after its promotion push stalled in the last match of the season. Somerville announced last week that during October and November assistant coach Stan Packer will be in charge of a nine-week summer academy squad to prepare young players for senior and reserve soccer. Those selected from the current squads are: Ash Scholes, Jar McMinimee, Jordan Lunt, Sam Beadle, Latham Horvath, Kadison English, Kevin McCormick, Liam Morgan, Dom Dawe, Cameron Dingley, Caleb Anderson, Alex Colville, Jack McKenna, Tom Brewster, Devlin Lee, Eddie Hume, Callum Love, Lachie Flannigan, Sam Clark-Ash, Alex ClarkAsh, Zac Kearney, Josh Mulder, Joshua Davies. The club also invites players aged 15– 21 interested in joining the Eagles for 2019 to contact director of football Zach Peddersen via the club’s facebook page or email zach@elevationsports.com.au Next weekend’s game: SATURDAY 10am: Southern Utd v Calder Utd (U14 grand final, ABD Stadium).

Mornington women triumphant SOCCER

By Craig MacKenzie MORNINGTON’S senior women’s team enjoyed a landmark season by clinching the State 4 South championship on goal difference from Old Mentonians. It was their inaugural season in the competition and they now are preparing for the challenge of State 3 South in 2019. What makes their achievement remarkable is that the average age of the squad is just 17 with the youngest player only 15 years old. There also is a strong club connection with 10 of the 15 players having played with Mornington’s juniors. Coach Robin Smith was thrilled with his side’s triumph and highlighted the squad’s unity as a key factor. “I’m delighted for this group of young women,” Smith said. “They’ve worked hard all season and there is an outstanding team spirit which has been the biggest factor in their well-deserved success.”

Dylan is far from Dunn and dusted FORMER champion apprentice jockey, Dylan Dunn, is set to return to the saddle this week after being forced to prematurely hang up the boots 18 months ago due to illness and weight concerns. The 23-year-old has taken some time away to allow his body to recover and was given the all-clear on Wednesday 12 September to resume race-riding by as early as Saturday 15 September. Dunn will be sticking to riding at 58kg in the “country” and 57kg in “town” which he believes will not only benefit his body but also his ability to ride at his best. “When I first retired, obviously it wasn’t exactly something that I wanted to do but I felt that I had to do it because of the way my weight was,” Dunn said. “I just found trying to lose a kilo or two over the course of a week is fine but when you’re constantly going to lose three kilos the day before a race meeting it just isn’t good for your health, your mental state and also your ability to ride. “I’ve taken some time off to really let my body relax and sort of finish growing too, now that I’m 23. “I’m going into it this time with a much better frame of mind because I’m actually able to eat, I’m not having to sweat and hopefully I’m going to be able to ride even better because of it. “ Prior to taking a step back from the sport, Dunn had ridden more than 130 winners including the Group Three Easter Cup on Leebaz and the Group Three Breeders Stakes on Tris. He is now set to return as a fullyfledged senior rider, having completed more than four years of full-time riding, including trackwork and on race day. “It probably works out to have ridden 4,000 horses every year or more, so you know it better than the back of your

hand,” he said. “As soon as I got on that first horse and was able to have a gallop I felt like I was back home and even doing the trials yesterday I feel as though nothings ever changed. “I honestly feel like I haven’t even stopped, so I’m pretty confident that when I get back it should be all smooth sailing.” Dunn has also spent the past month riding full-time work for James Cummings’ Godolphin stables which he “snapped up” as soon as the offer presented itself. There has also been plenty of support from trainers across Victoria who have offered a lending hand as Dunn starts to make his way back onto the scene. “There’s been plenty of trainers that said they’ll look after me when I come back and try and support me the best they can, but realistically the thing I’m most impressed about is all the people from day-to-day life that have been fans or friends of family that have shown so much support,” he said. “That’s probably one of the reasons why I am coming back because I feel that I didn’t get to leave on terms that I wanted to, and I had so many supporters back then that I now want to be able to help get great success with.” “Just to be able to reach so many people and have so many great responses back to me just really proves that I’m doing the right thing in returning to racing.” Ben Triandafillou

Mounties soar in junior footy finals MPJFL

By Ben Triandafillou THE Mt Martha Junior Football Club had a massive hand in the Mornington Peninsula Junior Football League grand finals which were held over the weekend of Saturday 8 September in Pearcedale. The Mounties relished the “perfect grand final atmosphere” over the two days, with five of their nine teams taking out their respective age-group grand finals. There were three sides from the Frankston District Junior Football League (Mt Eliza, Frankston Rovers and Seaford) that also added to the occasion, with Mt Eliza also managing to claim the grand final victory in the under-18s Girls grand final over Mt Martha. Mt Martha Junior Football Club president James Barrett said it couldn’t have been a better weekend for the 18 grand finals to take place. “It was brilliant football weather; the atmosphere was great, and it was a massive crowd with grand parents, friends and family all turning up to support and cheer on the juniors,” Barrett said. “The games were reasonably close and it was the first time for a lot of the girls to play in the grand finals.” Of the six Girls’ grand finals, Mt Martha had four sides competing, with two of them scoring victories. Barrett believes the under-11s Girls’ side would have easily won the “best-dressed” award for the finals. “They were super excited to get out there, and every one of them had their hair done up in black and red hairbands to support the club. It was fantastic.”

Barrett said to have four sides make it through to the Girls’ grand finals was a credit to the system that they have in place at Mt Martha. “It comes down to the programs we’ve got for training as well as off-field behaviour,” he said. “Overall the overarching key to the Girl’s program is to focus on their development and retention. We have about 120 girls in total so it would be great to see them back here again for next season.” As for having the three FDJFL sides in the league, Barrett said it was great to have the added competition to contend with. “Mt Eliza is a fairly strong club and was a good adversary to have in the [under-18s Girls] league throughout the year,” he said. “More competition is always better.” Over the two days, the MPJFL grand final winners were: Under-11s Girls – Tyabb, Boys Navy – Red Hill and Boys White - Dromana ; Under-12s Boys Navy – Mt Martha and Boys White Moorooduc; Under-13s Girls – Mt Martha, Boys White – Somerville and Boys Navy – Mt Martha; Under-14s Boys White – Rosebud and Boys Navy - Rye; Under-15s Girls White – Pearcedale/Baxter, Girls Navy – Mt Martha and Boys - Beleura; Under-16s Boys Navy – Mt Martha and Boys White - Dromana; Under- 17s Boys – Pearcedale/Baxter; Under18s Girls Navy – Mt Eliza and Girls White – Seaford.

Mitchell ready for world champ, Whateley scores pro win BLAIRGOWRIE boxer Jayde Mitchell is one step closer to his world championship title after a tough victory over former Australian champion Kerry Foley on Friday 7 September. Just as he’s overcome various injuries, Mitchell managed to pick himself up after suffering several blows from Foley in the sixth round, to take out the 10-round match-up at the Melbourne Pavilion. Mitchell, who sat just inside the top 10 world rankings prior to the fight, believes he will now jump into the top five following the victory. Mitchell said Foley would have to be one of the biggest hitters he has faced in his career. “If anyone had questioned my durability before, I certainly showed that I can pick myself up and take it to some of the best,” he said. “He got me with his trademark left hook in the sixth round, and I was gone, but I wasn’t going to let him take away all that hard work and everything we had gained up to this point. “It was a really tough fight and a really tough round, but I made the necessary adjustments and showed why I am one of the best super middleweight fighters.” Mitchell believes the fight against Foley will benefit him greatly in the long run. “Until you’re put into that situation you don’t if you’ve got the toughness and mental toughness to lift yourself out of it, and I think I proved to everyone and myself that I definitely have the mental smarts and physical capabilities to do so,” he said. “We are so close now [to reaching the goal of a world title], all the sacrifice will be all worth it in the end, and I believe I have the tools and style now to become the new world champion.” Mitchell is planning on having one more fight on December 14, before hopefully making a charge at the WBA World super-middleweight Champion, Rocky Fielding in early 2019. Also on the Friday night card, Peninsula Boxing’s Jason Whateley made his professional debut after an exceptional amateur career. Whateley faced New Zealand boxer, Navosa Ioata, in a six-round

match-up and kicked off his professional career in terrific fashion, comfortably claiming his debut fight. Peninsula Boxing head coach Marcos Amado said that while the fight wasn’t for a title, it was still a massive fight which meant a lot going forward. “[Whateley] had 96 amateur fights, but it was like starting all over again,” Amado said. “He had all the pressure and expectation coming into it, so he had to carry that as well. “He had to get used to the different crowd and the different atmos-

phere, so it was good to see that he could actually follow instructions as well as he did and put into practise what we had been training. “It’s easy to do certain things on the pads, and the bags, and with sparring partners but when you’re under the lights and in front of the crowd, to be able to execute the game plan, is a whole different skill in itself.” Amado has always believed that Whateley would be better suited to the extra rounds of a professional fight, and his debut only reinforced that belief. “There’s a big difference as far as

the way things are scored and the way things are looked at but for us Jason is an endurance athlete,” he said. “He’s built for longer rounds, so the more rounds we can fight the better he’s going to look.” “He’s quieter rounds were the first and second rounds and then he stormed home in the third, fourth, fifth and sixth, and considering he’s never fought six rounds before, he made it look easy. “He could have done with the 12 rounds straight off the bat.” This week, Whateley will also be sparring with and preparing Australian cruiserweight boxer

Mark Flanagan as he builds up for his world title bout against Denis Lebedev. Flanagan is expected to be down sparring with Jason from Tuesday 18 September to Friday 21 September. Peninsula Boxing also had four other amateur boxers take to the ring on the Saturday. April Franks picked up a late call-up fight and went up a weight division, but still managed to score a convincing victory. “She took the fight on two days’ notice and comfortably beat a heavier and more experience girl,” Amado said. “The advantage we had was that this weekend she has a fight down in Tasmania, so we were ready three quarters of the way. “Although it was a weight division higher and she had a little bit more experience I knew April was up to the task and I said straight away that ‘she’ll take the fight’.” “The girl was significantly bigger than her, a lot taller than her, probably had a foot higher reach on her but it meant that we didn’t have to cut weight either, so we didn’t have to worry about the weight aspect of it.” Scott McDonald also took up a fight on the Saturday, and while he was dominant at the start, he was forced to stop as he copped a thumb to the eye. “He was winning the bout and had just landed some cracking shots,” Amado said. “The guy just slipped his glove out and just caught him in the eye with his thumb and actually pushed his eye back into the socket. It wasn’t too good. “He lost vision in that eye for a little while. He’s getting better now but it’s still severely bruised and still closed up.” Amado said that “these unfortunate things happen” and a rematch between the two boxers has been organised in a couple of weeks. Glen Richardson also returned to the ring after two years away and managed to give an eight count, being finishing off strongly to score an impressive comeback victory. Maurice Girolami closed out the day with an impressive second round stoppage. “It was a successful weekend all up,” Amado concluded. Ben Triandafillou

Tyabb motocross junior racing through the ranks HE’S only 12-years-old, but Tyabb Motocross rider, Ty Godfrey, is quickly climbing the riding ranks and has claimed the Victorian Junior State Motocross Title on Saturday 1 September. The humble athlete has lived and breathed the sport since he could speak, making motor bike noises and riding his first quad bike by the age of twoyears-old. While he wasn’t specifically aiming to take out the state title, Ty still managed to rack up victories in three of the four rounds at various tracks across Victoria. Ty’s only unplaced round came after dislocating his finger in the second lap, yet he still managed to finish the race off in fourth. The victory was his second major titles win this year having also won the Shipwreck Coast Open in January. Ty’s father, Matt Godfrey, said that while the wins are a massive testament to his ability, he’s actually more proud of the way he has developed over the years. “I’m more proud of how he’s matured, developed and learnt how to cope with the pressure,” Matt said.

“Obviously I’m with him every time he rides, but the way he continues to progress is amazing. I just love the way he is humble and doesn’t want to be a superstar. He has a real cult following from the younger kids, they all want to dress and be like him. I’m just really proud of him.” Ty scored the state title victory over a group of 35 quality riders from across not only Victoria, but also interstate competitors. Matt said the volunteer-run motorcycle track in Hastings, which is based on Blue Scope land, has been a massive benefit for Ty to get to this level. “We’ve got to give a big thanks to everyone around the corner at the motorcycle track,” Matt said. “It’s the best facility for someone like Ty to grow up with. It’s forever changing and caters for all rider types. “That’s where he got a lot of his skill and he’s been going there since he started when he was two.” While Ty is having great success in the motocross discipline, he is also looking at taking up freestyle riding and competing in events once he turns

16-years-old. Matt said he has been heavily influenced by Nitro Circus star, Cam Sinclair, who Ty has become “great friends” with. “He loves jumping off freestyle ramps, and doing flips and jumps into the foam pits,” Matt said. “He just loves riding a motor bike to be honest. Every night he comes home and drops the bag and goes off on the mini bike, and as he gets bigger the jumps just get bigger. “It’s pretty amazing to watch. He gives the big boys a bit of a run for their money that’s for sure.” Ty is now eyeing off yet another major competition, the Western Regional Championships, which he’s currently leading by 50 points with one round to go. Ty won the last round of the championships with a broken fork on Saturday 8 September, and still managed to post the fastest time for the day. The final round of the Western Series will be run in Colac on Saturday 27 October. Ben Triandafillou Southern Peninsula News
