Shire to drown in fees, costs MORNINGTON Peninsula Shire Council is bracing for a “substantial administrative and enforcement obligation” when tough state government pool and spa regulations come into force early next year. The shire estimates it has about 10 per cent of the state’s private swimming pools and spas – the most of any local government area. About 17,000 are “known” to exist although the actual number could be as high as 25,000 – or one-in-four properties. The dates they were built are uncertain for all but 18 per cent – or 3040 – of the known 17,000.

Officers estimate that up to 80 per cent of these pools and spas will be non-compliant under the new rules. These statistics are set to trigger a workload avalanche that the shire admits it is ill-equipped to handle. And it will be costly: The mayor Cr David Gill said the fees the council was obliged to charge would not equal the cost of enforcing the state’s new rules. “It will cost the shire – the ratepayers – up to $100 for every registration for which we will be reimbursed $57,” he said. “We estimate that the whole process, including administration costs, time spent chasing fees and fines, employing inspectors, and tracking down undeclared pools and spas, will cost $2-$3

pool’s construction: 30 October 2020 for pools or spas built before 30 June 1994; 30 April 2021 for those built 1 July 1994-1 May 2010, and 29 October 2021 for those built after 1 May 2010. Owners found to have non-compliant safety barriers can take 20 days to rectify problems or they will be issued with non-compliance certificates costing $385. The shire will pursue this amount. Owners can apply for time extensions if compliance work takes longer than expected. Cr Gill said he regretted that the shire would be forced to rely on non-compliance fees to help defray costs. “It’s not a position we like being in,” he said. “But in the initial stages that is the reality.”

million in the first few years. “After that this figure will come down.” Statutory building manager David Kotsiakos reported to last week’s council meeting that the new rules aimed to reduce drownings among young children by improving safety barriers. He said since 2000 there had been 27 fatalities and for every fatality 15 “near misses” often causing brain injury. Councils across the state will be required to establish and maintain pool and spa registers when the act comes into force on 1 December 2019.

Dead end on diesel spill Stephen Taylor steve@mpnews.com.au NEITHER the EPA nor Melbourne Water has been able to trace the source of a diesel leak in foreshore drains at Safety Beach and Dromana. Despite a four-month investigation in which booms were laid at the mouth of a large drain at Safety Beach and odours traced as far upstream as Rainier Avenue, Dromana, the contamination continues. Residents say diesel fumes and sheen is evident in water from a drain near the intersection of Marine Parade and Point Nepean Road, opposite a service station. A kilometre south at Dromana diesel odours are still noticeable in a smaller drain opposite another service station. The issue flared when a Safety Beach resident complained of diesel fumes after bathing opposite Marine Drive, Dromana (“Diesel fumes taint sand, water” The News 17/4/2019). Rob Debernardi said the drain opposite a long-established BP service station was flowing strongly after heavy rain. “I scooped up a handful of wet sand and smelled it and there was no mistaking [the diesel smell],” he said. “I could also see the sheen [of diesel] floating on the water.” Last week Melbourne Water manager John Woodland said booms at its outlet near the BP station were aimed at “providing an immediate response to the spill”. “These booms were in place for a couple of months until the issue was considered resolved,” he said.

May. “Finding the source of odours, especially when coming through complex drain systems, can be difficult as the odour may be detected further upstream than the actual contamination, which can provide ‘false leads’,” spokesman John Rees said. “Some sources of contamination

VISITORS to the Sorrento Community Centre open day next month can try a new game sensation called Pickleball. The indoor game is a cross between tennis, badminton and table tennis. It suits all ages, with tactics more important than agility or strength. There are also positive social element. To learn more about Pickleball check out: pickleball-the-biggestsport-youve-never-heard-of Community centre manager Heather Barton said if there is sufficient local interest in the new sport, teams will be formed and a competition organised. “I’m told there is a huge following at Ocean Grove, so I can visualise people going across on the ferry to play there and vice versa,” she said. The open day runs 10am-1pm, Saturday 12 October. The early childhood centre will be open and a range of other activities will include Boomerang Bag group, art and – of course – a barbecue. The centre is at 860 Melbourne Road, Sorrento. Enter from Morce Avenue behind the shopping centre and across the car park from IGA.

Sharing our views on a smoke free peninsula MEMBERS of the community are invited to share their thoughts on Mornington Peninsula Shire Council’s draft Smoke Free Environment Policy. Community consultation on the draft Policy is open until Monday 7 October. The initiative stems from the council’s public health and wellbeing plan and the Frankston Mornington Peninsula smoke free charter. The charter encourages the shire, other public land owners, businesses and community groups to provide smoke free public areas and implement programs to reduce smoking rates in the community. Many local businesses have joined the charter by providing smoke-free areas, such as at Bentons Square and

Mornington Central shopping centres. The draft smoke free environment policy, and the charter, support the tobacco and alcohol compliance element of the shire’s food safety program Best Bites. The policy assesses local food businesses on measures they are taking to provide safe and healthy food, use environmentally sustainable business practices, and provide safe and accessible food premises. The draft smoke free environment policy aims to improve our health and wellbeing protecting people from second-hand smoke, de-normalising smoking behaviours (important in discouraging children from taking up smoking), establishing smokefree areas, and supporting those who

have quit or who are trying to quit by removing visual cues and triggers. The shire says state government laws are inconsistent when it comes to limiting smoking on beaches and footpaths: smoking is only banned at patrolled beaches and footpath dining areas, people can smoke at other beaches and on footpath seating where only drinks or snacks are served, and smoking is currently not banned in camping areas or bush reserves. The mayor Cr David Gill said: “The benefits to the health of the community and the natural environment are clear, and as part of our commitment to council’s public health and wellbeing plan, we’re interested to hear from the community about creating a

smoke free Mornington Peninsula.” He urges people to share their thoughts, questions and concerns about the draft policy. “Research has shown that smoking bans at outdoor dining and drinking areas and other smoke free outdoor areas are supported by 73 per cent of Victorians,” he said. “As well, cigarette butts account for nearly half of all litter collected across Australia. “Council is passionate about creating a healthier, happier and cleaner Mornington Peninsula, and is extremely interested in hearing from the community about their thoughts on the draft policy.” Consistent and simple smoke-free laws could help reduce second hand

smoke exposure, encourage families to use public land and local food retailers, and will greatly reduce the amount of cigarette butt litter, he said.

Safety Beach beauty takes on Miss Tourism Australia

Des Berry

By Stephen Taylor A SAFETY Beach girl who embodies the values of the Mornington Peninsula’s healthy outdoor lifestyle is the new face of our international tourism efforts. Miss Tourism Australia winner Charli Wookey, 19, is getting ready to head to Malaysia to compete in this year’s International Miss Tourism Final in November. Charli, who attended Rosebud Secondary College, will compete against entrants from 40 countries in the lead up to the coronation ceremony at Sunway Resort Hotel and Spa, Kuala Lumpur. Her role as Miss Tourism Australia promotes Australia as a tourist destination which should suit Charli’s lifestyle: the outdoors girl is a member of the Peninsula Board Riders, and has competed in surfing competitions at Gunnamatta, Rye, Portsea and Pt Leo. She is thrilled to be heading overseas. “It is a good opportunity for fun and experience,” she said. “I’d be stoked to win it. It would definitely boost my confidence and improve my modelling career. “It would certainly help get my name out there.” Charli, also aspiring actress, studies the craft at the Acting Performance Studio, Moorabbin. Miss Tourism Australia is her first pageant. It aims to boost the international and domestic marketing of tourism in Australia, and increase opportunities and demand for Australia as a destination for leisure and business travel. Miss Tourism Australia director Deborah Miller said our girls had placed in the top 5 at the international competition over the past three years. “It provides a platform for talented, beautiful and educated young women to promote tourism internationally and communicate what it means to be Australian,” she said. By the sounds of it, Charli will be right at home.

Marching, chanting with the environment in mind SOUNDS of chanting and drumming coming from Rosebud shopping centre last week were orchestrated by one of the many pro-environment groups making up Extinction Rebellion Victoria. Organiser Kate Wilkins said the local response to the Thursday afternoon disruption was interesting: “We were mostly cheered, congratulated and thanked by onlookers – surprisingly by a lot of the elderly shoppers,” she said. The retailers’ response was mixed: “Woolworths ran us out quick smart, while Aldi was hospitable and quite unconcerned.” Ms Wilkins agreed it “probably seems like there are so many environment stories and so much climate-related news” these days. “This will only increase,” she said. “Extinction Rebellion members find it hard to see how there really can be any more important news than this existential threat of utter environmental degradation and destruction of the ecological systems our very life depends on.” The group acknowledges the dedication of so many people in preserving and protecting the environment. “The problem is, nothing has worked,” Ms Wilkins said. “After many hard years of campaigning, we are in a worse state than ever before and are rapidly taking the world to the brink of a no-return scenario.” Setting itself on a collision course with mainstream society, Extinction Rebellion says it will use non-violent civil disobedience

to get its point across. A Spring Uprising, with traffic disruptions and blockading in the Melbourne CBD from 7 October will no doubt put many commuters offside. “The disruptions will be creative and colourful and absolutely nonviolent,” Ms Wilkins said. “We must halt ‘business as usual’ in order to indicate to governments and power elites that we won’t allow this to go on. “We simply cannot let them destroy the future for generations

Applications open Fire Management Contractors List 2019/20 Mornington Peninsula Shire invites applications from contractors to be considered for placement on our Fire Management Contractors List. The Shire inspects private land for fire hazards in the lead-up to summer and during the Declared Fire Danger Period. Where a fire hazard is identified, landowners are sent a Fire Prevention Notice issued under the Country Fire Authority

Act 1958 to remove the fire hazard by a specified date. To assist owners with carrying out the work, the Shire includes a Fire Management Contractors List with each Fire Prevention Notice sent. Contractors may be requested to undertake works including slashing grass and undertaking weed and vegetation removal.

to come. To allow that would be to fail humanity in the most profound way.” The group wants the federal government to commit to net zero carbon emissions by 2025 – “2050 is way too late”. It wants the decision-making process given to citizens’ assemblies that are “not pressured by giant lobbies and this vital issue moved beyond partisan politicking”. Ms Wilkins said: “I’m a grandmother of two beautiful boys and

I’ve come to the point – after crying so many tears – of understanding that the most I can love them is to stand against this criminal robbing of their future security and rights in an environment fit for healthy living. “All the people in this group are united by their passion for this beautiful world and all that lives in it and we will keep working until we achieve our goal of halting this disastrous course we have taken.”

Young eyes look to the future THE war on waste, the future health of our natural resources, bushfire preparedness and endangered species were topics of discussion at the Kids Teaching Kids environmental conference at Point Nepean National Park last week. The Point Nepean event, now in its eighth year, is one of the highlights of the conference which involved 370 students from 14 Mornington Peninsula schools, Thursday 12 September. Director and founder Deputy Lord Mayor of Melbourne Arron Wood said: “Our Point Nepean organisers do an amazing job putting on a program that schools look forward to every year. “The students have been working hard on topics, including the war on waste, the future health of our natural resources, bushfire preparedness and endangered species.” Mr Wood said KTK was the leading peer education program in Australia. It is free and available to all schools. “Students are guided to teach each other and present their knowledge of a selected sustainability issue to their peers,” he said. The environmental conference was held at Badcoe Hall (the old quarantine station), at the end of Point Nepean Road, Portsea. Students from Grade 4 to Year 9 came from primary schools Boneo, Brentwood Park, Crib Point, Derinya, Mornington Park, Red Hill Consolidated, Rye, Sorrento, St Brendan’s, St Joseph’s, St Macartans and Tootgarook as well as Sorrento kindergarten, Mt Eliza Secondary College and Peninsula Grammar. Representatives from Kids Teaching Kids and Park rangers also attended.

MP pushes harder line against animal rights activists MORNINGTON Peninsula farmers and animal producers may soon be protected from animal activists trespassing on their properties and shutting down their livelihood. The issue was highlighted earlier this year when animal activists occupied a Tyabb chicken farm. The Crimes Amendment (Trespass) Bill 2019, introduced into the state Legislative Council by Shooters Fishers and Farmers Party MP Jeff Bourman last week aims to “enhance protections offered to industries pertaining to animal enterprise and animal recreational activities” once it is passed. After several incidents involving animal activists entering businesses and farms, the issue was referred to a house committee to inquire into and report on a response, if any was needed. Despite it going to committee, Mr Bourman said he was keen to press ahead with draft legislation: “I understand this issue is before a committee, but we don’t need a committee to know there is a problem that needs to be fixed,” he said. “I don’t need an inquiry to tell me what is right and that what has been going on for decades is a problem and what will need to be done to fix it. “The state of Victoria needs to change its archaic trespass laws to reflect modern times and modern problems.”

Mr Bourman’s bill aims to enhance protections to animal-related industries and create specific offences relating to trespass on land with intent to interfere with activities involving animals. It will also increase penalties for new offences relating to trespass to be “in line with current community expectations”. This will include but not be limited to mandatory minimum non-parole sentences. “Current sentencing for related crimes has been widely criticised, given the gravity of the offences, for not being sufficient,” Mr Bourman said. “Extremist animal activism is not a peaceful protest movement, it is a hostile and aggressive activist movement that is invading people’s workplaces, which in many instances are also their homes, as well as aggressively confronting anyone who engages in any activity they don’t like. “They have taken the movement from the town square and public land onto private land and into people’s homes.” Mr Bourman said: “We are all entitled to a safe work environment which in most farming cases is a home. We are entitled to be free from unauthorised and illegal surveillance equipment in our workplaces, we are entitled to go to work without the threat of activists busting in, either overtly or covertly.”

Southern Peninsula residents and artists Fay Plamka, Juanita Aitken and Josie Jones – who are judging the competition – all bring a different perspective to their roles. “They jumped at the chance to be involved with the project,” Rye Lions president Gael Harvey said of the international competition which is expected to attract about 600,000 entries. “Fay has worked as a court artist for many years, bringing characters to life with her realistic portrayal.

Ollie leads the way

Well prepared: Red Hill Cub Scouts Ollie Edgar, top left, with fellow hikers Isaac Rozakis, Miles Musgrave, Dom Musgrave, Charlie Skene and Oscar McDonnell. Picture: Gary Sissons

RED Hill Cub Scout Ollie Edgar achieved one of the challenges involved in gaining his Grey Wolf Award last week. His task was to plan and lead a group of 1st Red Hill Cub Scouts on a two kilometre hike over two hours, ensuring they wore sensible clothing and had the right equipment. Their goal was the scenic Coolart Homestead at Somers. “Organising and leading the hike is one of the biggest challenges and one of the most important things needed to complete the Grey Wolf Award,” cub leader Megan Musgrave said. “Ollie had to do a ‘reccy’ (reconnoitre), map the course, invite the others to participate, include everyone in the planning and then lead the way.” The Grey Wolf award is prestigious among Cubs, with only three other recipients in the 30-member Red Hill troop. It is regarded as part of the transition phase to becoming a Scout. Leaders are always needed at the troop at 91 Arthurs Seat Road, Red Hill. Visit: redhillcubs@gmail.com

High flyers rapped over land clearing MORNINGTON Peninsula Shire Council has praised residents for their “vigilance” in detecting and reporting illegal foreshore works on the beachside of a Portsea property owned by trucking magnate Lindsay Fox. The mayor Cr David Gill said the residents “assisted in bringing this matter to our attention [and] demonstrated our community’s desire to protect the peninsula’s unique environment”. This led to a company associated with Mr Fox being fined $10,000

in Dromana Magistrates’ Court and ordered to pay the council $10,000 in costs over illegal works on a 4600 square metre parcel at Point King beach. (“Fox fined over beach land” The News 10/9/2019). But Mr Fox is not the only highflyer falling foul of the shire’s landclearing and planning laws. Dual-Brownlow medalist Chris Judd was last week fined $40,000 and ordered to pay $6000 costs by the same court for wholesale clearing of 3000 square metres of private land at

Main Ridge. The shire brought the charges under the Planning and Environment Act 1987. The former Carlton champion was caught out by “happenstance” when a council employee took photos of the cleared land for his own use which were later used as evidence at the trial. The mayor Cr David Gill slammed recalcitrant landowners for trying to bring “their own brand of urbanisation” into the indigenous peninsula

environment. “Judd tried to turn sensitive bushland into a park,” he said. “His was a severe case of land clearing.” Cr Gill said the fines imposed on the pair would not be their only expenses. “We will follow up restoration of the land in the Fox and Judd cases through VCAT and it will be costly for both of them,” he said. “It might take years to restore their land but if they think they can just use their money and it will be all done and dusted it will not be.”

Op shops to close VISION Australia will close its Rye and Somerville op shops at the end of next month. This comes after the service provider said it had decided to “refocus on its core mission of providing specialised services to people who are blind or have low vision”. Vision Australia says on its home page that the shops are among “four fantastic op shops in Victoria that are run entirely by volunteers and raise vital funds for Vision Australia to provide quality services for our clients”. General manager Graeme Craig said last week: “The closure of the stores is by no means a reflection of the quality of work that has been carried out and the pride of our volunteers and staff in [these] … locations. “This has always been at an exceptional level and we are grateful for their hard work and dedication. They have made a valuable contribution by providing quality low-cost clothing and items and a place for people within Rye and Somerville to come together and contribute as a community.” A “volunteer recognition event” will be held following the shops’ closures. Mr Craig said volunteers would be invited to “discuss the closures and explore other opportunities with Vision Australia”. He thanked the “wider community for their support of the op shops and the impact that has had for the blind and low vision community”. “We would also like to thank the public for their support of our op shops,” Mr Craig said. “All funds raised through these locations have gone toward supporting people who are blind or have low vision.” Details: Call 1300 84 74 66 or visit visionaustralia.org

Students lead the way in the eyes of OAMs THE 2019 Roy Ward Leadership Prizes for secondary students were presented at the Order of Australia Association, Mornington Peninsula Regional Groups annual luncheon held at the Safety Beach Yacht Club and Community Centre on Friday 23August. The Roy Ward Leadership Prizes have been recognized by secondary schools and students in our region, since its inception in 2000, as prestigious, with the process providing “real life” post-secondary education experiences. Twenty-one secondary schools within the zone were invited to forward submissions. Fifteen nominations were received, and these were evaluated by a selection panel of the Group’s members. Six submissions were short listed to interview to determine the winners. The winner of the 2019 Roy Ward Leadership Prize for a student who has shown exceptional leadership and community service was Alice Bertram from Woodleigh School. Alice is a year 12 student involved in all aspects of school life. Alice is the recipient of Melbourne University Kwong Lee Dow Scholarship and has been awarded the Australian Defence Force Long Tan Leadership and Teamwork Award. Alice is committed to environmental conservation making people aware of the plight of elephant poaching and involvement through the Melbourne Zoo’s eastern bandicoot program and their program “When Balloons Fly Birds Die”. In year 10 Alice was one of ten stu-

dents selected to travel to Indonesia as part of a scientific excursion to study rainforests and reefs. Alice is a keen sportswoman and is involved in swimming as captain of the school swim team, cross country and athletics and was a founding member of the Woodleigh Ovella Park Sheep Stud. She also is a member of the Woodleigh Focus Orchestra and the flute ensemble. Alice is a qualified

firefighter and is a member of the Edithvale CFA. The winner of the 2019 Roy Ward Leadership Prize for Courage and Fortitude is William Rear from Frankston High School. This Prize was introduced in 2018 and is granted to a secondary student in years 10, 11 or 12 who has demonstrated in their school, outstanding qualities of leadership, character and community service, while facing sig-

nificant challenges in their own lives. In 2011 following the onset of headaches that became increasingly more severe, William was diagnosed with brain cancer and was rushed to Monash Children’s Hospital where after a six-hour operation most of the tumour was removed. However in 2017 the tumour regrew and William faced another major operation which thankfully has cleared William of cancer but left him

with many residual complications, including multiple hormone deficiency and short-term memory loss. William is a key member of the Frankston High School Student Leadership Council, a volunteer and leader in an Acquired Brain Injury Clinic giving hope and encouragement based on experience especially in memory and speech techniques. In 2014 William attended the Asian Pacific Children’s Convention in Japan and remains involved as part of the selection panel for ongoing attendees. Through his involvement in Tour de Cure and Baileys Day events he has been able to turn a passion into tangible assistance. Although William will have to deal with the residual effects of his treatment for the rest of his life, he gains strength by reminding himself “that you have to fight through some bad days to earn the best days of your life”.

Australia Post robbery IT took only a minute for two offenders to force their way into the Australia Post shop at Mornington and force open self-serve machines before fleeing with a “large amount of cash”, early Wednesday 11 September. CCTV images show the men parking a dark coloured late model Land Cruiser or similar outside the shop in Main Street at 3am before breaking open the glass front door. The robbery is similar to a raid on self-service registers at the Woolworths supermarket, also in Main Street, 1.50am, Wednesday 4 September. In that raid three offenders stole two whole self-serve machines containing large amounts and dragged them out to a dark-coloured SUV in the car park. Detectives from the Eastern Metropolitan Crime Task Force are investigating.

Charges over raids A CRIB Point teenager has been arrested and charged over a series of raids on chemist shops at Somerville, Hastings and Balnarring, overnight Friday 6 September. Detective Senior Constable Rohan Brock, of Somerville CIU, said the 19-year-old was tackled by a “Good Samaritan” as he left one of the shops early Saturday morning. During what was termed an “altercation” his keys were thrown into a bush and he was intercepted by police

before he could find them and drive off. The man has been charged with four counts of burglary and remanded in custody. As he was on bail for other matters in Bendigo it is unclear whether he will face court at Frankston or there.

‘Darwin Award’ entrant intercepted SOMERVILLE Highway Patrol officers who pulled over an unregistered car on Frankston-Dandenong Road, outside Bunurong Cemetery, last week, were aghast when the driver told them he’d been drinking all night. He then blew 0.183 per cent. The man lost his licence on the spot and had his car impounded for a month with a release fee of $969. So far this year 13 people have lost their lives on Frankston and Mornington Peninsula roads.

Operation Argus wraps up OPERATION Argus conducted 4547 breath tests detecting 11 drink drivers; conducted 228 drug tests detecting 14 drug drivers and detected 289 other offences, including speeding and using mobile phones, in the Frankston and Mornington Peninsula areas. The operation, which ran from

Thursday 5 to Sunday 8 September, was run by police of all ranks working non-stop to “make the roads safer”. Two serious injury collisions in the area over the period included a car running off Ballarto Road and hitting a tree, 9.20am, Thursday 5 September. The driver is suspected of falling asleep. The other involved an Uber driver running a red light at the intersection of Cranbourne Road and Beach Street, Frankston, 10.50am, Sunday 8 September, and hitting another car.

Air Wing spots speedster A FRANKSTON woman pulled over on Sky Road, Frankston, was detected by the Air Wing travelling at 186kph in a 100kph zone, Wednesday 11 September. The 36-year-old woman was spotted from the air in a black Holden SS Commodore speeding on the Monash Freeway and EastLink as she headed towards the Peninsula about 4.15am. The woman, who tested positive to methyl-amphetamine and cannabis, told police she wanted to get home to her children and take them to school. She is expected to be charged on summons with drug driving, exceeding the speed limit by more than 45kph and driving in a manner dangerous and speed dangerous. Her

Cyclists be seen, be safer CYCLISTS should have a think about what they wear on their next ride. Brighter colours, such as yellow or white, will make them stand out and allow motorists to see them more easily. That’s the word from traffic police who say many cyclists passing their checkpoint at the bottom of Oliver’s Hill near the car park exit on Saturday morning (where there have been many car-versus-cyclist collisions), had not factored in that being easily seen makes them safer. Their tops were a mixture of fluoro yellow, red, blue, white and black, with leggings predominantly black. “Most of the car/cyclist collisions

we attend occur because the driver failed to see the cyclist,” Senior Constable Gregg Wolfe, of Somerville Highway Patrol, said. “Drivers are urged to please have a good look for cyclists before pulling out into intersections or roundabouts etc.”

On the road to nowhere SOMERVILLE Highway Patrol members returning from a fatal collision at Hallam pulled over two Holden commodores racing along Cranbourne Road, Cranbourne, at 139kph in an 80kph zone. Two men, aged 29 and 42, of Cranbourne West, will be summons to appear at court for engaging in a race and exceeding the speed limit. Their cars were impounded for 30 days at a cost of $1005.

100 YEARS AGO THIS WEEK...

Motion to limit charge for football match entry defeated Compiled by Cameron McCullough Cr Oates said he noticed in the “Standard” that his action to prevent the Football Association charging 1s instead of 6d and 1d tax to football matches had been resented in some quarters. The Association, without notice, had increased the charge, and quite a lot of people resented their action, and although he had taken steps to have it blocked in the match between Frankston and Somerville, he had not been successful. He considered 6d a sufficient charge, and he moved the Association be informed that the maximum charge allowed would be 6d and 1d tax in forthcoming matches held in the Council’s parks. Cr Mason seconded. Cr Griffeth thought it would have been impossible to give change to the large crowd at the recent match. He considered 1s a reasonable price for semi-finals and finals, particularly as the clubs benefited. The players were not paid, and the association officers did not benefit. Any balance at the end of the season was divided amongst the clubs. He believed two Frankston men forced their way through the gate, refusing to pay. Cr Oates – It was a wonder they did not all do so. Cr Griffeth said it was the intention of the association, if funds permitted, to insure players against accident. Surely this should be encouraged ? Cr Oates – The people who are being penalised are the people who have stood to their clubs all through. Cr Griffeth – The association may

remove their matches to another shire. Cr Oates – That is a threat. Cr Murray thought it inadvisable at this late hour to interfere. He thought the association should have given the public notice before increasing the price. Cr Oates said it would be the people of this shire who were penalized. Balnarring and Dromana were out and Mornington had arranged a match on their own ground for the Saturday next, to keep their people away from Somerville, so the public of Frankston and Hastings Shire would have to pay. Cr Howell considered that the Council should have been approached by the Association before the price was altered. They were dealing with reserves held in trust for the public. Cr Longmuir thought 1s had been charged previously. Cr Oates did not think so. The Council had authority to collect 10 per cent but had never done so. Cr Griffeth said the footballers had done most to improve the Somerville park. Cr Latham thought a shilling a fair charge. Cr Unthank said notice of increase should have been given, but 1s, was a fair charge. President – I think so too. The motion was lost – the voting being equal. For – Crs Oates, Mason, Hoban, Howell, Armstrong and Wells. Against – Crs Turner, Unthank, Longmuir, Latham, Murray and Griffeth. *** OWING to Thursday being Show Day, the “Wattle” club will hold their usual

fortnightly euchre party and dance on Wednesday 24th September. *** THE third term of Mrs Dial’s private school, Frankston, has commenced at St. Paul’s school room and intending pupils should enroll with the principal at once. *** IT is expected by the Water Commission that a supply will be carried through to Flinders naval base within a few weeks. Arrangements have been made to connect the various townships en route, and it will be possible at an early date to link up the system with Frankston. Other townships will receive supplies shortly afterwards. *** APPLICATIONS for Peace Loan Bonds will be received up to September 23rd. The interest 5 per cent is payable half yearly in June and December, and is not liable to State Income Tax. Attached to each bond are coupons for the interest – one for each half year – and as those become due they can be cashed free of charge at any Bank or Money Order Post Office. *** ANOTHER Early Train Proposal – Many members of the Commercial Travellers’ Association, of Victoria are interesting themselves in trying to secure a Monday Morning Train from Frankston to connect with all early morning country trains. It is presumed that if this train is secured quite a number of commercial men will reside permanently in Frankston. ***

A GRAND cornucopia will be held in the Frankston State School and grounds on Friday, 10th October. The proceeds are to be devoted to the purchase of a piano for the school. During the years of war the children devoted their energies to raising funds for patriotic causes, and as this is their first effort for their school the committee expect to score a big success. *** THE “Frankston Cup” – (Racing men are advised to keep cool this is not a racing trophy.) In connection with the boxing tournament in Melbourne for returned soldiers arranged by the State Commandant, Brigadier General Brand, and organised by Major Conder, we notice that Mr J. B. Jolly of Frankston has donated a silver cup for competition to be known as the Frankston cup. *** THE Frankston Mechanics’ Institute is at present undergoing repairs and a general spring clean up. The painting work is being carried out by Mr Bert Stephens, who appears to be handling his task in a very workmanlike way. It is to be hoped that the Committee will bear in mind that the building with a new coat on does not give more room inside and that the public are anxiously awaiting the long promised enlargement of the ball. *** LAST week the Prince of Wales Hotel, Frankston, was purchased by Mr A. McKinnon of Melbourne, from Mr J. Sheridan of Frankston. The price paid is said to have been a substantial one, and consistent with the upward tendency of property values

now existing in this district. The new owner contemplates substantial improvements to the present commodious building, including the erection of a balcony and extensive accommodation for motorists. The present lessee is Mrs H. Garrood and her lease does not expire till about the middle of next year. *** MR D. H. Allen during a recent tour of the Peninsula proved a keen and critical observer. His impressions formed regarding our fruit growing areas were highly favorable, and coming from such a practical source his views carry more than ordinary weight. Mr Allen, who is the travelling representative of Mitchell and Co. Pty. Ltd., the well known manufacturers of farming and orcharding implements, has had 23 years experience as an orchardist and at present owns “Yaroba” orchard, Croydon, but he admits that he wants to see nothing better than the orchards of Somerville and surrounding districts. It is the intention of Mr Allen’s firm to arrange exhibitions in the various centres featuring their orchard plows, spring tooth barrows and other implements. Mr H. Gomm of Somerville has been appointed the local representative for the Peninsula, and Mr R. E. Peebles, is the firms sub agent for Frankston. When the date for holding the exhibition has been arranged ample notice will be given so that all interested may have an opportunity of attending. *** FROM the pages of the Mornington Standard, 20 September 1919

Tigers take out the top prize DIVISION ONE

By Brodie Cowburn DROMANA have made history by winning the MPNFL Division One and Division Two premierships in consecutive years. The Tigers travelled to Frankston Park on Sunday to take on powerhouse club Sorrento in a much anticipated Grand Final showdown. Dromana came into the clash looking to go back to back after their second division triumph last year, and

Sorrento were looking for retribution after falling just short in last year’s big dance. Both sides had to battle through tough conditions throughout the afternoon. Dromana came out narrow leaders after a tense first quarter, and took a one point lead into the second term. The game opened up a little more after a low scoring opening quarter, as both sides added three goals each to their tally before half time. At the main break Dromana still held onto

their one point lead. The third quarter is often dubbed the premiership quarter, and Dromana were determined to make the most of it. A three goals to zero third term put the Tigers in the box seat. They went into the last quarter with a 15 point lead over Sorrento. Dromana could only add one more goal to their tally before the final siren, but they had done enough to get the win. It was a tense and hard fought battle, but Dromana managed to overcome the Sharks to claim the

win 6.9 (45) to 8.4 (52). Scenes of jubilation followed as the Tigers celebrated back to back premiership wins, this time over a rival team. Will Guerts was one of Dromana’s best, while three goals from Ben Holmes also helped them get the win. Sam Fowler scored two goals and was also impressive. On a tough day for Sorrento, Chad Harris was their best. In the Division One reserves, Mt Eliza claimed another Grand Final

win. The Redlegs took on Frankston YCW on Sunday, and started on the right foot with a four goals to zero first term. The Redlegs looked good from the outset, and eventually claimed the premiership with a 10.7 (67) to 6.5 (41) win. The victory secured the Redlegs their sixth consecutive reserves premiership. Frankston YCW fared better in the under-19s Grand Final, securing an 8.5 (53) to 6.7 (43) win.

Super Southern in Grand Final SOCCER

By Craig MacKenzie SOUTHERN United’s remarkable youngsters stunned odds-on favourite and league champion South Melbourne at Lakeside Stadium on Saturday to claim a place in this weekend’s under-16 NPLW Grand Final. Southern finished the league season 27 points behind South Melbourne who had a superior goal difference of 57. But this Southern group has been one of the NPLW’s success stories having won the title and the Grand Final in 2017 at under-13 level and doubling up on championship success last year but losing 2-1 to Calder United in the under-14 showpiece event. On Saturday South Melbourne went ahead in the 55th minute when Georgia Kandilas was left free at the back post and headed home. But the lead only lasted two minutes. Southern captain Sage Kirby had her shirt pulled inside the area and leading scorer Rhys McKenna converted from the spot. The deadlock couldn’t be broken at the end of normal time and 10 minutes each way of extra time so penalties decided the winner of this cut-throat semi-final. And Southern gave a flawless display converting four times through McKenna, Olivia Cullen, Indy Scarr and Taylah Hennekam while Southern keeper Alex Jones saved twice to send the local side into this weekend’s Grand Final against Bulleen. Southern has an ace up its sleeve in head coach and former Matilda Deb Nichols who along with current under-14s coach Emma Bracken has nurtured these talented young players and helped them develop into one of Victoria’s best underage sides. An emotional Nicholls addressed her squad after the game: “Today is a day you will never forget. You will replay this day when you, in the future, are standing in my shoes in front of a team of young chargers. “This is why I have stayed in this game for 43 years, for days like today. “This game can break your heart but can also take you to the most wonderful places. “It’s been one hell of a week for this club but you just took it to another level. “So proud. Looking forward to an-

other Grand Final. We fear no one.” Things are just as exciting off the field and Southern made a raft of coaching announcements last week with Olivia Groves, Bracken, Nichols and Liam Drury all being re-appointed to their roles with the under-12s, under-14s, under-16s and reserves squads respectively. The club also announced that Melissa Maizels had been retained as senior player-coach and that Southern and Casey council have struck an agreement that will see the club based at the elite soccer facility at Casey Fields. It was the final step in Southern cutting itself free from a sometimes fraught relationship with Frankston council and many at the club are delighted at the switch of allegiances. In NPL2 news Jamie Skelly has been retained as Scott Miller’s assistant at Langwarrin. The former Casey Comets and Peninsula Strikers head coach was at the centre of a strong rumour circulating last week linking him with another local club but quickly dismissed any suggestion of a move. “I’ll be at Langy again next season and I’m really looking forward to it,” Skelly said. “My first choice always was to stay here.” Langy legend Gus Macleod was last week named as the club’s new head of coaching for its community junior teams.

Mark Cassar is Langy’s new NPL technical director replacing the highly successful Stephen Fisher who was tipped to be joining Frankston Pines but Bentleigh Greens and Doveton have been in touch and are keen to have him involved. Doug Hodgson has left Langwarrin and the club has advertised its NPL under-16 and under-18 coaching positions. In State 1 news Mornington has confirmed a number of appointments recently with Adam Jamieson re-appointed as senior coach along with assistant Nathan Peel. Craig Davidson is technical director of Mornington’s NPL juniors, Adam Austin is head of coaching for community junior teams and Andrew Martin is head of coaching for the women’s program. In State 5 news Somerville Eagles’ finals campaign ended last weekend when it went down 2-1 to Waverley Wanderers at Comets Stadium. Waverley left winger Panagiotis Tsoupeis was the most influential player on the pitch and he gave Somerville right back Callum Richardson a torrid time throughout. The most colourful person off the pitch was Waverley assistant coach Gabby Vlahos who insisted on reminding referee George Iliopoulos that there was a reason he was refereeing at State 5 level. The fact that Waverley was a State 5 team and Vlahos was a State

5 assistant appeared to be of little concern and an agitated Vlahos followed Iliopoulos to the referees’ room at half-time arguing over a decision taken in the first half. At one stage after the interval Iliopoulos stopped play to insist on a child leaving the Waverley technical area and was given an explanation that there was no-one to look after the youngster. This theatrical parry and thrust came to an abrupt end during the second stanza when Iliopoulos could take no more and he sent off Vlahos forcing him to leave the arena and become one of the 64 spectators on the other side of the fence. Meanwhile there was a match going on. In the 49th minute Somerville lined up to defend a Tsoupeis corner without anyone on the near post. That forced Somerville keeper Francis Beck into diving down low and late and failing to stop the ball slipping under his grasp and into goal for the opener. In the 62nd minute Somerville player-coach Dave Greening neatly turned inside an opponent on the right and broke forward then crossed to the far post where strike partner Mark Pagliarulo’s first-time sidefoot volley made it 1-1. But Tsoupeis wasn’t done with yet. In the 72nd minute he looked set to curl in a free-kick instead squaring the ball to former Skye striker Nick

Theodore and his drive from outside the area rocketed into the far corner giving Beck no chance. Somerville pushed central midfielder Daniel Hodge forward late in the contest but the damage had been done. Meanwhile Aspendale Stingrays and Rosebud signed off on the 2019 State 5 season with a remarkable 12goal catch-up contest at Kingston Heath Soccer Complex last Wednesday night. What was a whirlwind start for the Stingrays turned into an arm wrestle in which they eventually prevailed 8-4. Aspendale led through 16-year-old Nathan Barnett whose pace worried Rosebud early and the teenager scored the first two goals inside four minutes. When Kieran Hughes made it 3-0 in the 25th minute a comfortable night seemed assured. Right on half-time the first of a Cory Osorio double made it 3-1. An eight-goal second half centred on a quickfire hat-trick from substitute Anthony Segavac whose goal blitz was achieved in just nine minutes ending any hopes the visitors had of completing a comeback. It was an excellent season finale for the Stingrays who boast the youngest side in the competition. The game also marked the 250th appearance for the club of Aspendale’s Noah Berends who is just 18 years old. Aspendale’s best were Hughes, Peter Dimopoulos and Kenan Nuhanovic.

By Ben Triandafillou BALNARRING-based trainer Kerry Edwards landed her first Stakes race with stable star, Rox The Castle, at Flemington on Saturday 14 September. Despite drawing an outside barrier, the former New Zealand galloper was too tough in the Listed $140,000 The Sofitel (1400m) stakes after sitting outside the lead and holding on for a narrow victory. The gutsy win topped off a Mornington-trained trifecta with the Rachel Frost-trained Travimyfriend finishing half-of-alength away in second and the Grahame Begg-trained Romancer finishing a further length behind in third. Trainer Kerry Edwards was understandably ecstatic following the gallant victory. “He is unbelievable,” she said post-race. “That was seriously tough what he did then. Craig (Williams) sat on him as long as he could, it was a little bit close at the end, but he just digs in so deep. I’m so proud of him.” With three horses in work and one being broken in, the parttime trainer has placed the lightly raced Rox The Castle perfectly to bring his record to seven wins and two placings from 12 starts. Also mixing her small training business with work as a gardener, Edwards says having a horse like Rox The Castle makes it even more enjoyable. “I’m just a small stable and I do it all myself so I really can’t handle anymore than four in work at one time so it’s a little bit of a juggling act, but I have the passion for the horses and getting a horse like him is absolutely outstanding,” she said. Champion jockey, Craig Williams, was aboard the four-yearold son of Castledale in his Stakes victory and believes he’ll be a great competitor for more races in the Spring. “There’s no doubt that he’s a Spring class horse but it’ll be interesting to see which way Kerry goes with him,” he said. “They’ve just managed him so well for a lightly raced horse.” Edwards will follow her usual planning strategy and make decisions on where to head next with her star gelding in the coming days once she has an understanding on how he has come through his win. Rox The Castle has now taken his prizemoney past the $250,000 mark.
