Bridge links family’s past

Their bridge: Littlejohn family members shared the celebration with councillors Antonella Celi and Simon Brooks and representatives from VicRoads and Dromana and District Historical Society at Littlejohn Bridge. Picture: Supplied

A DROMANA family which moved into the area more than 100 years ago has been remembered by having a bridge over Dunns Creek named after it. Littlejohn Bridge on Point Nepean Road is named after William Littlejohn who arrived in 1917 with his family of nine children and settled on land along Dunns Creek. In 1927 Mr Littlejohn successfully tendered to build a reinforced concrete bridge to replace an old timber bridge at the entrance to his property. “The Littlejohn family has, over many years, made a significant contribution to the Dromana district and wider peninsula community,” the mayor Cr Bryan Payne said. “This bridge will serve as a fitting tribute and local reminder of the dedication and community spirit of a well-loved peninsula family.” The Littlejohn family was on school committees, involved in building the tennis club house at Red Hill, establishing the Red Hill Show and improving the Red Hill reserve. The family moved the stage and extended the western end of the Red Hill hall and built the Red Hill Scout hall. Family members were also on the Red Hill committee of the Dromana Bush Nursing Hospital. The naming request came through Dromana Historical Society which recommended the Littlejohns an early pioneering family in the Dromana region. The council supported the proposal and advised VicRoads.

‘Market test’ for CEO’s job Keith Platt keith@mpnews.com.au ADVERTISEMENTS will soon be running for Mornington Peninsula Shire’s top job – chief executive officer. Held by Carl Cowie for the past four years, the CEO’s job comes with a package of nearly $400,000. The shire – with the help of consult-

ant Topsy Petchey, a former Kingston councillor and mayor – will now select a recruitment firm to identify suitable candidates. Mr Cowie was appointed in 2014 and councillors last week decided to advertise the job, giving him the required six months’ notice of their intentions to not automatically reappoint him. The mayor Cr Bryan Payne issued a statement saying the decision “is

not a reflection on the performance of the chief executive officer, but rather council exercising due diligence to ensure that the most appropriate person is in place to lead the organisation into the future”. Cr Payne – a former CEO at several municipalities – later told The News that he “hopes Carl reapplies – he’s indicated to me that he will”. “It will take a very good person to

Mail made it, but not the postie’s bike A POSTIE was lucky to escape serious injury when his bike was sandwiched by two cars in Rosebud, Wednesday afternoon. The postie was returning to the depot about 3.30pm when he found himself sandwiched in Bayview Road. Both cars and the bike were extensively damaged. First Constable Chris Spero, of Somerville Highway Patrol, said it was likely “multiple” charges would be laid against the driver of the green car, a 26-year-old Rye man, depending on the result of blood tests. These could include drug driving, careless driving and driving while disqualified. Spokesman John Pyrros said Australia Post had offered the postie support after his ordeal. “He was lucky to avoid serious injury and we are thankful he’s OK,” he said. Anyone who saw the incident is urged to call Crime Stoppers 1800 333 000. Picture: Yanni

Shire budget ‘delivers’, says mayor Stephen Taylor steve@mpnews.com.au BIG ticket items listed in this year’s Mornington Peninsula Shire budget include $4.9 million to rebuild the Somerville Recreation and Community Centre and $5.1 million for the “preliminary phases” of the Rosebud Aquatic Centre. They are among items in the 201819 capital works budget of $49 million adopted by councillors at their Tuesday 12 June meeting. Also included in the budget is another $9.1 million for recreational, leisure and community facilities; $9.7 million for capital works on buildings;

$5.1 million for parks, open spaces and streetscapes; $2.7 million for drainage and works; $1 million for climate change mitigation and adaption; and $1.2 million for domestic animal management. Ratepayers will be hit with a 2.25 per cent increase – the maximum allowed under the state government’s Fair Go rates cap. Despite this, the mayor Cr Bryan Payne, said the budget “delivered” on the council plan’s four key themes: Place, Connectivity, Prosperity and Wellbeing. “[It] reflects the priorities identified by community members and provides ongoing service improvements and in-

frastructure enhancements within the current financial environment,” he said. The total to be raised by general rates is $171.5 million, which includes a waste service charge of $24.3 million – a figure increased following China’s refusal to accept recycled materials. Mornington Peninsula Ratepayers’ Association secretary Allan Nelsen said this was a 22 per cent increase. “The waste services levy hike was the thing that jumped out at me,” he said. “All the council is doing is passing on the costs incurred by the contractor.” Also listed in the budget are $11 million for roads, paths, traffic and transport, and $1.4 million for school crossings in “high risk locations”.

Economic and tourism programs to “promote the region, industry development and visitor servicing” receive $1.3 million. A further $2.4 million will go towards town planning, footpath repairs, coastal vegetation, bay trails and paths, the Green Wedge, coastal management plans for Mt Eliza and Portsea and southern peninsula traffic management. Financial controller Bulent Oz said the council “had to accommodate a number of external challenges while maintaining its commitment to [achieving] the status of a low-rating council” and complying with the rate cap.

“Notwithstanding this and other challenges, council projects a surplus of $20.2 million.” He said other challenges included the CPI forecast increase of two per cent for 2018-19, ongoing cost shifting from other branches of government, and the Fire Services Property Levy collected by the council on behalf of the state government. Mr Nelsen added: “It seems that [CEO] Carl Cowie is doing his job of managing the shire within the state government’s rate cap and continuing to reduce borrowings. The shire seems to be in a sound financial position.” The budget can be downloaded at mornpen.vic.gov.au/budget

Shining a light on sustainability

We’ve made a global commitment to climate change. In striving towards carbon neutral Council operations by 2021, we’re demonstrating leadership through a series of innovative renewable energy initiatives, waste recovery and recycling activities, and by assisting local businesses to make environmental upgrades that will reduce the carbon footprint of the entire region. Our long-standing history supporting the uptake of renewable generation continues with our current Rooftop Solar PV Rollout on Shire owned or operated buildings, which will see some 2,440 panels installed and reduce the Shire’s carbon footprint by 1,062 t CO2e per annum. We’re celebrating a new Environmental Upgrade Agreement between the Shire, the Sustainable Melbourne Fund and local salad growers Hussey and Co., to finance a 505kW solar system at their Somerville facility, expected to save 754 t CO2e—equivalent to taking 161 cars off the road each year! Nine EUAs are now in place and comprise 839.5 kW, or some 2,881 solar panels, installed across the Shire.

Foreshore landscape works undertaken as the first stage of Rye Township Plan will include paved plazas with lookout and seating areas, a wheelchair accessible boardwalk with beach access to protect the dunes and connect the Bay Trail, decorative lighting, and Water Sensitive Urban Design elements, including raingardens, to reduce storm water runoff and remove outfall to the east of the pier. The project is jointly funded by Melbourne Water’s Living Rivers Program and is expected to be completed in October before the summer period. mornpen.vic.gov.au/ryetownshipplan

Placing community front and centre

Seawinds: Crs Simon Brooks, Antonella Celi, Frank Martin

Briars: Crs Bev Colomb, Rosie Clark, Sam Hearn

The many clubs and groups in our vibrant community make our ward a special place. The diverse and inspiring program at Seawinds Hub offers community programs, services and activities for the whole family and the Seahorse Cafe offers a meeting space to enjoy a cuppa and a nutritious meal. With plans for the Rosebud Aquatic Centre underway, the Woodworkers and Radio Clubs are soon to be relocated to Vern Wright Reserve and will continue their amazing work in their new home by January 2019.

We’re striving to ensure that our community centres and facilities are the best they can be. Our community houses are integral to the lives of many in our ward and we are working with stakeholders to find sustainable governance solutions that support and enhance the social and community benefits of places such as Mornington Community Centre. With the soccer pitches now up and running at Emil Madsen Reserve and construction of the new Citation Reserve pavilion underway, excellent sporting facilities will be available for all members of our growing community.

Red Hill: Cr David Gill

Aged care is, I believe, a priority in Red Hill ward. Our ward is exactly 50% of the Shire but has only one high-level care facility, commonly called a nursing home. We need to have these facilities in each of our villages so that people are not forced to move away from their communities when other options are no longer appropriate.

Sold! Ansett land changes hands Stephen Taylor steve@mpnews.com.au RETIREMENT village proprietor Chas Jacobsen has bought the last parcel of the former Ansett estate in Mt Eliza for an “undisclosed sum”, believed to be around $33 million. The 22.3-hectare block is an addition to the neighbouring 11.7-hectare Gunyong Valley estate which he bought from the estate of the late Lady Joan Ansett for $14.5 million in 2006. Equity Trustees announced the sale after a “comprehensive six month expressions-of-interest campaign” for the property owned by the R M Ansett Trust in Mt Eliza. The land, on four titles of varying sizes and with 100 metres of beachfront, is at the corner of Kunyung Road and Albatross Avenue. It was sold as a single parcel on an unconditional basis with contracts signed Friday 8 June. The sale price, purchaser and details of the agreement were not disclosed. The chief operating officer of Village Glen retirement village at Capel Sound, Peter Neilson, said Mr Jacobsen was “happy with the purchase and the price he paid”. “What he does with it is up to him. He knows all about its zonings and what can be done there. It’s a significant land holding,” Mr Neilson said. He said Mr Jacobsen lived on the

adjoining block with his family. “He farms cattle there and so we can presume that will continue.” Equity Trustees managing director Mick O’Brien described the sale as a “great outcome for the Ansett Trust which will now be able to invest more funds to meet its charitable purpose – to assist children to take their place in life.” Since its establishment in 2010 the trust has distributed more than $5 million to programs that assist young people, including those in out-of-home care, charities that run children’s programs and scholarships to schools on the Mornington Peninsula, he said. Mornington MP David Morris said it was “encouraging that the R M Ansett Trust has said that the purchaser is someone with a great understanding of the significance of this parcel of land”. He said the “initial approach taken by the Trust’s consultants (Ernst and Young) was very different, suggesting that this was a land bank that had potential for redevelopment for commercial, hospitality, healthcare or education, of course, with the usual disclaimer subject to approval”. “I welcome the change of heart.” Mr Morris said the green break between Mt Eliza and Mornington was defined and protected by long-standing urban boundaries “and this land is a very important part of it”.

“Any development of the land must protect the existing landscape and be fully consistent with the existing green wedge zoning.” Mr Morris said any approval for changes to the urban boundary would have to pass through state parliament. “While it is possible, the chances of a successful application are probably less than 1 in 100 if not 1 in 1000,” he said. “I call on the Minister for Planning [Richard Wynne], and the Premier [Daniel Andrews], to join me in a commitment to oppose any move to weaken current controls or to allow quasiurban residential development.” During the sales campaign, Mt Eliza Association for Environmental Care president Des Berry said the land could not be subdivided for residential development. “It is in the green wedge and any prospective buyers should carefully check the legal ramifications of any possible subdivision,” he said. “We are an environment group and our aim is to protect the area’s significant native vegetation, especially along the foreshore.” Mr Berry said his group doubted the land’s existing boundaries could be “realigned” as stated in the Ernst and Young brochure. “We would fight any redevelopment,” he said.

Spreading the word on elder abuse ELDER abuse was the theme of a stall at Rosebud Plaza last week by members of Peninsula Advisory Committee for Elders (PACE). The group spoke to shoppers and handed out ribbons and literature on elder abuse, which included advice of who to contact for assistance if they become a victim, or know anyone who is a victim. The visit coincided with World Elder Abuse Awareness Day, Friday 15 June. Organiser Jeanette Lane said elder abuse “can take many forms”. “Often more than one type of abuse can be used,” she said. Emotional (or psychological) abuse can include neglect, such as failing to provide the basic necessities of life, either intentionally or unintentionally. Financial abuse includes using

another’s money, property or assets illegally or improperly, or forcing someone to change their will or sign documents. “This is the most common form of abuse reported to Seniors Rights Victoria,” Ms Lane said. Physical abuse includes inflicting pain or injury by hitting, slapping, pushing or using restraints. Social abuse includes isolating a person by restricting their access to family, friends or services, which, in turn, prevents others from learning of the abuse. Sexual abuse is any sexual activity without consent. “Elder abuse is now recognised as family violence,” Ms Lane said.

Contracts ‘advance’ AGL’s gas plan Keith Platt keith@mpnews.com.au POWER company AGL sees two agreements signed on Tuesday 12 June as “advancing” its plans to moor a floating gas terminal at Crib Point. The company said one of the agreements “enables berth upgrades at the Port of Hastings as well as a leasing agreement that would be required, should the AGL project go ahead”. The other agreement involves building a gas pipeline from Crib Point to Pakenham. The project for the 300 metre long floating storage and regasification unit (FSRU) has yet to receive government approvals and the go ahead from the AGL board. Announcement on Tuesday of the agreements came with assurances that completion of the gas terminal will guarantee power discounts for small businesses. “Small businesses in Hastings, Crib Point, Bittern and towns along the pipeline route can look forward to a community energy offer delivering guaranteed discounts on AGL’s electricity and gas prices, should the project proceed,” AGL spokesman Kelly Parkinson said. The announcement also comes three days before the 15 June deadline for submissions to AGL about the plan. The Save Westernport – No Gas terminal for Crib Point group says the FSRU will pose a safety risk to the town and endanger Western Port’s marine environment. The group is holding a public rally on Sunday 1 July.

State Liberal MP for Hastings Neale Burgess says he’s consistently backed the Crib Point community’s fight against industrial development and is opposed any industry south of Hastings. “It’s time the wished of Crib Point residents came first,” Mr Burgess said. His Liberal federal colleague, Flinders MP Greg Hunt has been less forthcoming but last week issued a statement saying: “I have long argued that South Port is not the place for industrial development and my view hasn't changed in a decade. This applies to all such proposals. “Crib Point has become a residential community over the last few decades

and it has long been my view that it should not be reindustrialised. It is up to the Andrews Government to explain why it wants to reindustrialise Crib Point.” Mr Hunt has been criticised for telling residents asking him about the project to visit AGL’s website. The News has asked him if he regards the floating gas terminal as industrialisation. A letter distributed to residents in April by the Port of Hastings Development Authority said repairs and additions to the Crib Point jetty were being done “should the project proceed” (“Jetty gets ready for gas” The News 15/5/18). A statement issued by AGL last week

quotes the port authority’s CEO Malcolm Geier as saying he is “working with AGL as the project assessments and feasibility studies continue”. “The port team looks forward to working with AGL and the community on the next phase of what is an exciting project for the port and Crib Point,” Mr Geier is quoted as saying. A separate news release from the port authority said Mr Geier “noted that the port was fortunate to be in a position to be able to assist AGL in securing Victoria’s gas supply needs”. “The port is well placed with natural deep water channels and existing infrastructure available to facilitate projects

such as AGL’s. The prospect of the port playing a part in AGL’s plans to secure the state’s gas supply needs and provide additional competition in the domestic market is exciting.” The second agreement signed by AGL last week is with the APA Group for a gas pipeline from Crib Point to Pakenham. “Although we have been consulting with community members and governments since 2017, some community members are still understandably concerned about the project and the impact it might have,” Mr Parkinson said. “We will continue to engage and involve any stakeholders in the assessment process. “We’re carrying out feasibility into using the Crib Point Jetty because this has been identified as the best site to minimise local impact. “We are very aware that Western Port is an environmentally sensitive area and many areas within it are covered by the RAMSAR international convention on the protection of wetlands. “There is already an existing jetty that currently functions for petrol importation. “It has an existing deep water berth that does not require deep dredging and importantly it’s a relatively short distance from the Victorian gas network.” Mr Parkinson said another location “would require the construction of a new jetty and significant excavation of the bay floor”.

Sean Anthony Whelan Emergency Services Medal AN emergency services volunteer involved in more than 600 marine rescues, mostly in extreme conditions, Sean Anthony Whelan was

awarded the Emergency Services Medal in the Queen’s Birthday Honours. Volunteer Marine Rescue’s Sean Whelan, who is also a past recipient of the National Medal, received only the third ESM medal awarded this year. Mr Whelan, of Mt Martha, has been a VMR member at Mornington for more than 20 years. As training officer he is said to have introduced innovative and interesting ways of presenting training sessions to members, and served on the VMR executive committee. VMR’s Tim Warner said the safety of his crew and the people in distress have always been paramount to Mr Whelan. “There are many people who owe their lives to Sean’s contribution to Volunteer Marine Rescue in Victoria.” Mr Whelan said: “I am so very humbled by all of this, thank you and to all for the kind words. I feel I have grown up at VMR, joining at 22, to now at 43. “I have been blessed to have worked alongside some truly great people, people who have been mentors to me not only in the skills of marine rescue but also in life. “I know none of us at VMR do it for medals and I must say I feel a little awkward receiving this, so I attribute this recognition to the whole team that is VMR Mornington/Hastings: well done to you all.” Mr Whelan is the seventh VMR member to receive the ESM.

and community groups Peter Anthony Sallmann General Division AM PETER Anthony Sallmann, of Red Hill, was awarded an AM for “significant service to the legal profession as a leader and advisor to professional judicial organisations, and as an educator”. He was born in 1949.

Brendan Robert Kincade General Division OAM A VIETNAM veteran has been awarded a Medal in the General Division OAM in the Queen’s Birthday Honours for service to veterans and their families. Brendan Kincade, 71, now lives in a lifestyle village in Hastings but the former Frankston and Somerville resident keeps in touch with comrades across the Frankston region thanks to his role as vicepresident of the Vietnam Veterans

Association of Australia and volunteering with the Rotary Club of Frankston Sunrise. Mr Kincade said he was surprised when he found out he was nominated for an OAM. “I do things for other people because I can — not for recognition or reward. I do it because I can do it.” “I’m a bit embarrassed because I didn’t expect it, that’s for sure.” The former funeral director said the Vietnam Veterans Association “looks after” those who served and he said 45 per cent of all Vietnam veterans live in Victoria. “We keep trying to better the conditions for Vietnam veterans, making sure they’re being looked after by carers, by the government, and if they’re struggling with anything we’ll go into bat for them.” Mr Kincade was conscripted in 1967 and served as an infantry rifleman in Vietnam in 1968 before returning in 1969. “I did my time there and still retain the friendships that I made in the army. We enjoy our brotherhood together.” He still also enjoys visiting schools across the state to talk to pupils about Australia’s wartime history, describing it as “therapeutic”.

who have served and can take a joke and have a good sense of humour. I just love it.” Mrs Myers’ drive to help others was also fostered when she and Les owned a driving school for several years. She said most of the learners she took out on the roads were “middle-aged ladies”. “Mature people are the best to teach because they want to learn to drive, not just to pass the test.” Mrs Myers was named 2018 Frankston City Citizen of the Year by Frankston Council in January. She described both awards as “a great honour”. has been awarded a Medal in the General Division OAM in the Queen’s Birthday Honours. Cheryl Myers, 56, was awarded the OAM for service to veterans and their families. She is president of the Frankston and District Partners of Veterans Association of Australia and office holder at the Vietnam Veterans Association of Australia and the Frankston sub-branch of the RSL. Husband Les is a Vietnam veteran wounded in war. Mrs Myers said she got involved in the peacetime activity of helping veterans’ families after Les retired due to his war wounds. “I got involved in volunteering and drive the RSL bus three or four times a week,” she said. “I enjoy so much taking them out, especially the ex-servicewomen

Robert William Kilby General Division OAM FRANKSTON resident Robert Kilby, 86, was awarded a Medal in the General Division OAM in the Queen’s Birthday Honours for service to youth with a disability through education initiatives. Mr Kilby, a Justice of the Peace, was recognised for his help in establishing and operating the Burwood East Special Developmental School. He said he got involved in 1984 while living in the area as the school “was getting built”. Such is Mr Kilby’s enthusiasm for helping children with disabilities in education, he returned to the school committee in 2007 after a break and is still involved.

He praised the passion of the teachers at the school. “They do it very cheerfully and with great enthusiasm,” Mr Kilby said. “I admire the parents and the staff and that’s why I’m still involved.”

Pauline Nellie McLaughlin General Division OAM FRANKSTON South resident Pauline McLaughlin was awarded a Medal in the General Division OAM in the Queen’s Birthday Honours for service to community health, particularly palliative care. Mrs McLaughlin is a volunteer in the “Sunrise” bereavement program and has been a client care volunteer at Peninsula Home Hospice since 1986.

An independent voice for the community We are the only locally owned and operated community newspaper on the Mornington Peninsula. We are dedicated to the belief that a strong community newspaper is essential to a strong community. We exist to serve residents, community groups and businesses and ask for their support in return.

Let us be: The banner at the Westernport Angling Club building and members collecting signatures in High Street, Hastings.

Angling to stay near bay WESTERNPORT Angling Club members are calling on public support to save their club building and public toilets from the bulldozer. Signatures are being collected on a petition to be presented to Mornington Peninsula Shire Council says there is no reason for the club to be on the foreshore. The shire’s latest plan for the Hastings boat ramp and parking area shows road and landscaping works in the site now occupied by the club’s building. Club members say no other building in Hastings would meet the criteria for weighing and cleaning fish, boat trailer parking, fishing competition presentations, use of the club liquor licence and for keeping a defibrillator.

They are concerned the boat ramp parking design is on display for just six days before it goes for final approval at the 6pm, Tuesday 26 June council meeting at Hastings Community Hub. Members say their alternative plan (sent to the shire in April) has more parking spaces and fewer traffic “conflict” areas than the shire’s plan while retaining the club building and public toilets. Organiser Don Newman said the petition had more than 250 signatures. Members will continue to collect signatures at Hastings shopping centre and the Amazing Bait & Tackle shop over the coming weeks.

Traders taken in by conman’s sob story A MAN alleged to have fleeced more than a dozen small business owners from Mt Eliza to Rosebud over the past six months was arrested by Rosebud police last week. The 49-year-old, from the Latrobe Valley, appeared at Frankston Magistrates’ Court last week and was further remanded to Latrobe Valley Magistrates’ Court next month. He faces multiple charges of deception, theft, breach of an intervention order, reckless conduct endangering injury and unlawful assault, with some of the charges arising from incidents unrelated to the alleged cons. Leading Senior Constable Ian Huxtable, of Rosebud Police, said up to 13 traders had reported being fleeced of hundreds of dollars each. They said a man had simply walked into their businesses with a sob story, saying he had a business nearby but that his wife had driven off with his wallet, and asking if he could borrow some money until she returned. The amounts stolen ranged from $100-$200.

‘Getaway’ car stalled ALERT customers helped foil a potential robbery at the BP service station, Dromana, midnight, Saturday 9 June: they pulled the spark plug leads out of the “getaway” car preventing it being driven. A witness said that, minutes earlier, he and others had watched the store attendant remonstrating with a late-night customer who they thought was acting suspiciously. He said the attendant challenged the man and then shut the front door by remote-control, locking the man inside. The witness said the man attempted to force the door and smash a window to get out but, by

Police patrol the time he made it into his car, it was disabled and police were on the scene. A 30-year-old Forest Hill man faced Frankston Magistrates’ Court last week on theft charges. He was further remanded to a later date.

Cyclist killed THE cause of a collision causing the death of a cyclist in Moorooduc, Monday 11 June, was still to be determined late last week. The 61-year-old father of adult children from Frankston South, was hit by a garbage truck on Moorooduc Highway, near Bungower Road, about 10.40am. Police attended and later interviewed the truck driver, 53, of Noble Park, at Frankston Police Station. Acting senior sergeant Pat Hayes, of Frankston police, said, Thursday 14 June, that “no cause of death has been ascertained at this point and no charges laid”. He said a pair of headphones found at the scene would form part of the investigation. The stretch of the Moorooduc Highway where the cyclist died was considered semi-rural, although it was a “busy stretch of road”, he said. Northbound lanes on Moorooduc Highway remained closed between Tyabb and Bungower roads that evening. Anyone who saw the collision is urged to contact Crime Stoppers 1800 333 000 or submit a confidential crime report at crimestoppersvic. com.au

Shelter (and food) from the storm


STORMY weather late last week again made Mornington Harbour a main attraction. As wind-whipped waves spent their energy against the outside of the pier walkers dodged the spray and boats were safely secured on the lee side. The small jetty opposite the yacht club was snug enough for a fisherman who shared his catch with an opportunistic cormorant. Picture: Gary Sissons

Continued from Page 1 Mr Cowie’s predecessor, Michael Kennedy, held the position for almost 16 years, but did not make the short list of 12 applicants when the job was advertised in 2014. He was reappointed three times – in 2003, 2008 and 2011 - without council looking elsewhere. Cr Payne said Mr Cowie’s achievements included negotiating an enterprise agreement that saw a dramatic cut in the amount of sick leave available to staff. Staff had access to “unlimited sick leave, something that’s unheard of and something previous people hadn’t the fortitude” to challenge. “That probably didn’t make him popular with staff,” Cr Payne said. He said Mr Cowie had achieved “specifics” set by council on his appointment in 2014, which had led to savings of more than $7 million, much of which would be ongoing. Cr Payne said councillors were “reasserting control” over the shire that had been “run” by the officers “when the council was divided”. “That’s what I really locked horns about.” Cr Payne was annoyed last month when Mr Cowie approved a $3 million tender for legal firms that could be hired by the shire despite being asked to bring to matter to council before being approved under delegation (“Probe into $3m legal tender” The News 5/6/18). One major issue over which councillors and Mr Cowie have disagreed was his reluctance to list on the shire’s Gifts Register a Mediterranean holiday taken by him and his wife as guests aboard a cruise ship hired by prominent businessman and shire ratepayer Lindsay Fox (“CEO’s trip top draw on gifts list” The News 1/5/18). Mr Cowie also failed to persuade councillors to accept a media policy that would have strictly curtailed their ability to make public statements and hold “off the record” conversations. At the time, Cr Payne said the shire’s public relations were being handled “very poorly”. The then

CARL Cowie

communications, media and events manager Mark Kestigian, who is no longer employed by the shire, said the policy was designed to ensure the presentation of “a consistent and positive image of shire activities and service” (“Revolt over shire ‘muzzle’ bid” The News 21/6/17). Cr Payne also opposed Mr Cowie’s plan to open a shire office in Melbourne CBD. Council adopted the proposal although the office is yet to open. Dr Nelsen said the Mornington Peninsula Ratepayers’ Association was “very disappointed” the CEO’s job was being advertised. “Council appears to have a very short memo-

ry,” he said. “Since [Mr Cowie’s] appointment there have been very significant cost savings to ratepayers through more efficient shire management.” Dr Nelsen listed some of the saving as: $750,000 a year on the shire’s insurance; $500,000 - $1 million annually managing and running recreation centre, including the Pelican Park aquatic leisure centre at Hastings; introducing GeoMedia Smart Client which has the potential to save up to $500,000 a year by avoiding double handling of the shire’s computer data; $750,000 through continuous improvement actions and revised service delivery models; $2-3 million on eight footpath schemes which the residents did not want; $2.42 million by restructuring waste processing and awarding new waste contracts. “During his term Carl has been very accessible to our association, has been willing to meet with us whenever requested and there has been a significant improvement in the shire’s transparency and openness in response to our requests for information,” Dr Nelsen said. “Carl has strongly supported the council and community on a number of matters including opposing three-storey residential developments on the peninsula; helping to save Tootgarook Swamp by introducing a management plan and purchasing a sensitive area of land within the wetlands; finalising the Rosebud aquatic centre in a sensible location, and finalising the green wedge plan. “There is still much more to be done and most importantly we assert that with his private industry background and cost driven approach Carl is the most appropriate person to guarantee that the council’s directive that the budget cap of $41.57 million the Rosebud aquatic centre does not blow out to $50 million.” Dr Nelsen said Ratepayers Victoria was promoting the hiring of CEOs from the private sector “like Carl” to other Victorian councils.

Dog of a day as owners break rules Stephen Taylor steve@mpnews.com.au A MORNINGTON dog owner says she can’t exercise her assistance dog in on-leash parks because other dogs which are allowed to roam free rush up and harass it. And she’s blaming the lack of enforcement of the rules by Mornington Peninsula Shire rangers for letting this happen – particularly at Mornington Park. Autumn Tanfield is quick to dismiss the “whinger” tag: “I really feel for my 14-month-old Labrador-cross assistance dog because, while she’s allowed to have down-time from her training – without her coat on – she is always supposed to be on-leash and never to run wild. “It’s a real dilemma for me. She’s like a teenage girl and is difficult to hold onto when she gets excited. All dogs like to play, but she can pull me over.” Ms Tanfield said she risked being abused when she reminded other dog owners of the park’s on-leash rules. “People don’t take any notice of the signs,” she said. “They let their dogs run straight over even when Coco is wearing her identifying coat, yet when she is on dog-time she is not supposed to

wear it as she’s having a break from training. I don’t know if their dogs are going to be aggressive or not. It freaks me out. Their owners should have them under control.” The nurse for 40 years who suffers post traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) Ms Tanfield said Coco was supposed to have an hour’s exercise each day which was factored into her training. She said a trained assistance dog was valued at $35,000 and only obtained after a rigorous vetting of applicants by the relevant organisation. Requests for dogs go through an expressions-of-interest process. “We have to sign a 12-page document and the CEO of the organisation flies down from Sydney to oversee the hand-over. They are very picky about who their dogs go to.” Ms Tanfield said she frequently called shire rangers who typically replied there was “nothing we can do about it”. “I’m not complaining about the odd person who lets their dog run free – it’s the sheer number of people. Some have no concept of the rules.” The shire’s environment protection manager John Rankine said responsible pet ownership was an important issue in the community. “The council’s ranger team will always respond to reports of dogs at large or dogs that are not on leash,” he said. “We encourage all dog owners to have their dog under effective control at all times.” He said rangers would further investigate “if the community member provides specific locations and times”.

Pedestrians at risk MORNINGTON Peninsula Shire Council has hired a consultant to undertake a traffic study of Balnarring, including pedestrian safety on Frankston-Flinders Road. This follows receipt of a 197-signature petition at last week’s council meeting (12 June) calling for a pedestrian crossing on FrankstonFlinders Road, near the shopping centre. Acting team leader – traffic and transport Daniel Collins told the council an online petition had gathered a further 396 signatures. “The petitioner highlighted the strong community support for the pedestrian crossing and a strong fear that a child will be injured by a vehicle,” Mr Collins said. “As Frankston-Flinders Road is managed by VicRoads, the petition will be forwarded there for consideration. Any recommendations from the traffic study regarding Frankston-Flinders Road pedestrian facilities will inform future advocacy to VicRoads for improvements.”

Ways to end the Barkly gridlock In regard to Graeme Willaton’s letter “Seagulls take their turns at the crossing” (The News 12/6/18), there are smart people who look before they step onto crossings; fools who don’t; and, a very rare type of pedestrian who endeavours to keep the traffic flowing even if it means waiting a whole second to let a car proceed, instead of racing it to get right of way. Every time a considerate pedestrian does this, the world’s and that pedestrian’s carbon footprint is reduced. The smart pedestrian might look and then decide to hurry onto the crossing just as another pedestrian is about to step off it, and such a shuttle relay can continue for over a minute, causing major traffic jams, especially on Wednesdays (Mornington market days). These smart pedestrians may know their kerb drill but they are inconsiderate. Pedestrians do not have a God-given right to hold up traffic and I’d like to know which dill is responsible for the raised pedestrian crossings near the Barkly street and Main Street roundabout which so effectively foster such a false belief that a few weeks ago a fire truck rushing to an emergency had to mount the roundabout to squeeze through the gridlocked intersection. A few years ago, consultants conducted a survey in Main Street for Mornington Peninsula Shire, seeking ideas for improvements at Mornington. I suggested signs promoting considerate use of crossings. If that suggestion had been adopted I might not be writing this letter. To prevent a death or the destruction of a building by fire because of this often gridlocked roundabout, council should install signs instructing pedestrians to give right of way to cars about to exit the roundabout over the crossings until the raised crossings are replaced by normal crossings with refuge islands halfway across. Ray Gibb, Rosebud

Gulls that care Until “Seagulls take their turn at the crossing” (Letters 12/6/18) my impression of them, what with the Shire Hall beach gull gang which swoops and screams at me if I try to swim on a winter’s day; the Mothers Beach sunbather’s group who I’ve seen practicing specific yoga poses (Warrior Three with one leg parallel to the sand and their birdy spine lengthening out behind them); and the SHGG’s cousins on Main Street who I thought were trying to kill me for hierarchy purposes, has consisted of two things: fear and shame. Fear for my life and shame that I am not the animal lover I thought I was. Did you know of the void in space, unexplained by physics, that exists albeit haphazardly but directly 15 metres above my face? Seagulls can bomb dive out of it at any given moment. And until Graeme Willaton’s letter, their choosing to do so struck me as a little odd. Ahh, the gull of the sea, haunting me as I mind my business crossing the street. Oh Sir Willaton you’re right though; I’ve been a fool. They are warning me “Don’t cross here, you’re going to get yourself knocked out”. “Cross at the crossing” they must mean when they squawk strips off me. But, why are they so infuriated when I try to ice my muscles on a cold day? Their bright orange sticks-for-legs might be telling. Obviously without insulating muscle and fat they would assume exposure at such temperatures and have been chasing me off the beach as a kind gesture towards health. As good as a hug I say. This is what it sounds like when gull’s cry. Thank you good Samaritans. Bonnie Anderson, Mornington

Unanswered questions Attending an information session by Kawasaki [in relation to its planned hydrogen gas to liquid plant at Hastings], organised by our local MP, I learned something very interesting. After the presentation a spokesperson informed us that the [brown] coal to hydrogen test program was to hopefully prove the viability of the venture from start to end. But sadly, after many questions about the car-

bon capture part of the venture, it was revealed that this part of the process would not be tested. After further questions it was revealed that the whole carbon sequestration process was investigated by the state government with help from the federal government at taxpayers expense. It looks as if this whole venture’s commercial success hinges on taxpayers picking up the tab for the most controversial part, the unproven process of carbon sequestration underground offshore from [Gippsland’s] Golden Beach area. Questions about the disposal of the waste from the coal to hydrogen conversion and the composition of this waste could not be answered. I ask, is this really a venture we want to encourage as taxpayers? I for one have grave concerns about this when the vagueness of some of the answers to some pertinent questions is taken into account. Rupert Steiner, Balnarring Beach

Fence not needed I write to express my dismay about the sight that greeted me on my return to Mornington recently. A fence is being constructed, much higher than the previous inconspicuous railing, and of thick chain mesh wire, along the Fishermans Beach to Royal Beach area. This is visually ugly as well as unnecessary. If there are reasons for this “development”, no one seems to have been consulted: residents who, like me, have enjoyed walking the path in bushland away from the road, have not; the volunteer foreshore environmental friends group and its Mornington Peninsula Shire coordinator who spends time ensuring that this area is returned to its natural beauty, have not; and it seems that our elected representatives on council have not. In addition, half of the path running between Fishermans Beach and the bowling club has been blocked off completely. Why? Apparently there is to be three kilometres of this ugliness built. This is in contrast to the less intrusive way in which other bayside councils have managed to protect both the environment and its residents. There are a very few points, such as at the Wilsons Road intersection, where the cliff is close to the footpath, and may justify protection. However, this should not be a green light to three kilometres of prison-like fencing. It should be removed now. Dale Halstead, Mornington

Peninsula needs train The Mornington Peninsula’s population is growing steadily year on year, and is conservatively forecast to grow by 14.3 per cent in the next few years. There will be increased demand on all resources, not least on public transport. In Frankston, parking is inadequate and will become worse with increased passenger bottle necks at the station. If the railway could be extended past Frankston and further into the Mornington Peninsula, commuters could park their cars closer to home, or catch buses. We are all aware of the damage inflicted on the environment by car emissions and cars being driven to the city, usually with only the driver as occupant. There are situations where this cannot be avoided, tradesmen and their tools, individuals who for some reason or another cannot use public transport, or people who require their car for the job. The great mass of commuters do not need to use their cars and wouldn’t if public transport was readily available and more convenient. What do we need to do to mobilise our leaders and get this movement happening? Dolly Beaty, Mornington

Helpers thanked My husband and I would to thank the group of people that came to our aid Sunday 10 June on Marine Parade, Hastings after our fall. Your help and concern was amazing and sorry I didn’t take your names to again thank you in person.

Charles is recovering very well after a two-day stay in Frankston Hospital, where care and attention was very good. Linda and Charles Mallia, Balnarring

Doom not nigh What a dismal future awaits Kaye Mackay, Rye (“Dead by 2030” Letters 5/6/18). Why would you take any notice of scientists who predict our existence will end in three to seven years unless massive changes occur in our attitudes and behaviour? Everyone know’s that massive changes will not take place in that time frame. Even if we did, do you seriously think India, China and the real polluters will slow down? No way. We might do our little bit, but it won’t make an iota of difference. As for those scientists who predict doom and gloom, I bet they haven’t stopped their superannuation or any other planning for the future. It’s about time they and others who peddle their doom and gloom be made accountable. Peter Clothier, Blairgowrie

New station a start Frankston’s new station is impressive, but it remains a hub with only one spoke - Young Street. It still lacks proper access across the rail line. The pedestrian subway has not changed. However, the new high roofline hints at what the future could look like: an extension of Skyrail into the heart of Frankston. An elevated station would offer much better access for buses, cars and pedestrians from all directions. Wells Street would continue straight across to the Chisholm side. There would be room for a bigger car park and Frankston would have an undivided city centre with a proper transport hub. Ian Ward, Frankston

Power failures Why is no one questioning the federal government’s pumped hydro plans for the Snowy scheme and now Tasmanian hydro? The very fact that The Flat Earth Party are proposing this scheme would suggest that it will benefit coal miners. By all accounts we are facing a peak demand generation capacity shortfall (blackouts) thanks to John Howard steering the Coalition down the climate change denial road in the 1990s, which has led to under investment in new, clean generation projects. Pumped hydro will not increase peak demand generating capacity by a single kilowatt. Spending billions to pump water up mountains must to be the most inefficient and inappropriate proposal to address our immediate electricity supply issues. If the money were spent on geothermal

generation for instance, our peak generation capacity would be increased with clean electricity. If the money were used to build solar farms that super heat salt, which is stored and used as needed (day and night) to generate steam to drive turbines our peak generation would be increased also. With [Prime Minister Malcolm] Turnbull’s plan, when there is low electricity demand, instead of coal-fired generators being wound back, their excess output will be used to pump water back up to the dams where it came from. And there you have it. Increased demand for coalfired electricity which will drive up the price for the consumer. It takes more electricity to pump a given amount of water up a mountain than it can generate on the way down. The other beneficiaries might be the hardy soles who water-ski on the frigid waters of the mountain lakes over the summer. I’m sure they will appreciate any increase in temperature that the now warmer water being returned to the lake might bring. Peter Holt, Somerville

Planning priorities I like [Liberal candidate for Nepean] Russel Joseph (how can you not like some with Joseph in their name?) and think he is an all right guy. However, his suggestion that a Liberal government will “fix” planning problems is a bit misleading when you look at the planning decisions made by Matthew Guy, the current leader of the liberal party in Victoria (“Liberal protection” Letters 12/6/18). The fact is that both parties have lost the plot on planning and do not give two hoots or a holler about our concerns. Too much money from the developers. I will take this opportunity to weigh in on the [municipal] rate capping Issue. The Liberals (and the Greens) have been on a witch hunt on rate capping and have done their best to discredit it through their biased reports and findings in the Legislative Council’s inquiry into rate capping, which is headed by David Davis who would be the Liberal planning minister (scary thought?). The fear is that seeing the minister sets the cap rate and the Liberals are against rate capping, we have to really wonder if they might not, under the leadership of Local Government Minister David Morris, set high rates above the current controls so that councils can “catch up” on the dollars lost under the rate capping of the Labor government? I can speak from a position of authority on the rate capping issue as I was involved heavily during the formation phase and have remained active since.

Train station ransacked by teenager Compiled by Brodie Cowburn DURING the night of Tuesday, the 18th, the Frankston railway station goods shed was broken into. On Wednesday morning the railway officials found that the thief had broken open a window, and so gained entrance to the goods shed. The cash drawer had been removed from a table and taken away. Fortunately the shed porter had removed all the cash from the drawer before closing up the shed on the previous night, so that all the thief gained for his trouble was a few official papers of no value and a bottle of ink. The police were notified of the offence, and at about midday on the same day Senior Constable Bray and Constable Ryan arrested a young man named George Vivian, 18 years of age, and charged him with the offence. The cash drawer was recovered by the police where it had been hidden by Vivian. The prisoner was brought before Mr Oates, J.P. on Wednesday, and remanded to appear at the Frankston Court on Monday next 24th. *** IN the 410th casualty list, published on Wednesday evening, appear the names of Privates F. L. Schleebs, Mornington, dangerously wounded; and J. Skidmore, Carrum, wounded. Mr D. P. Cain has received notification of the death from wounds received in France of his nephew, Private Earnest Walter Hargreave, after 3 years service. A sister of the deceased soldier, Nurse Effie Hargreave has been serving in France for some time. ***

GREAT regret was expressed on all sides when the news was received of the death in action of Private Romeo who was well known and highly esteemed in Hastings. “Monty” tried unsuccessfully to enlist on four occasions before he was accepted. He was previously wounded in France, was invalided to England but returned again to the firing line. For three years previous to the war he was employed by Mr Cunningham, of Frankston and in that town also his quiet and unassuming manner and gentlemanly qualities made him a general favorite. Heartfelt sympathy is felt for his parents and relatives, who reside here. *** THE death occurred in Tuesday at Highett, of Miss Ollie Bowells daughter of Mrs Bowells, of this town. The deceased young lady had been in indifferent health for some time so that the end was not unexpected. The body was conveyed to Hastings on Wednesday, and was interred in the local cemetery. Heartfelt sympathy is felt for Mrs Bowells in her bereavement. *** AN orchard property of 21 acres consisting of 6½ acres full bearing orchard and 14½ acres virgin land, the property of Mr F. Williams, of Tyabb will be offered by public auction by Messrs Brody and Mason on Saturday next, June 29th. The land has a frontage of 17 chains to the main Hastings-Somerville road, by about 14 chains to O’Neills road, and is about midway between the Tyabb and Somerville railway stations.

Full particulars are advertised. *** THE exposure by the Federal Public Accounts Committee of the maladministration which has characterised the works now being carried out at the Flinders and Henderson naval bases has apparently awakened the authorities to a sense of their responsibility. The committee showed that huge sums of money had been practically thrown away as a result of the blunders which had taken place; useless tugs and dredges having been purchased, and in other directions estimates of cost vastly exceeded. One glaring instance of departmental blundering was the purchase of a tug at a cost of £7500 which was found to be absolutely useless for the work for which it was required. The Minister of Works and Railways is now inviting offers for the purchase of another tug, and it is to be hoped that precautions will be taken to secure value for the money spent on this occasion. The mistake has already involved a loss of nearly £10,000, as £100 a month has had to be paid for the hire of another tug to do the work. In order that the department will know the extent of its liability and not find that its estimate has again been greatly exceeded, tenders are also invited for the supply of steam navvies or shovels. *** A FOOTBALL match will be played this afternoon on the Frankston oval between the locals and a team from Hastings. A good game is expected, and both teams anticipate a victory. ***

UNDER the auspices of the W.C.T.U. and I.O.R., Mrs Vaughan, of South Australia, who has been engaged in war work in England for some time, will address a meeting to be held in the Frankston Mechanics’, on Tuesday, June 25th. Rev, Tonkin will preside, and musical items, etc. will be given. t *** AT a committee meeting of the Frankston Wattle Club, held on Monday evening, it was decided that the euchre tournament now in progress should end on September 26th, instead of the end of October, as was previously advertised. It was also decided to hold the annual ball on July 26th. The annual meeting will be held on Monday, July 8th, at 8pm sharp. *** THE Frankston Y.P.S.C.E. will hold their annual sale of gifts for the support of the missionary teacher in New Guinea, on Saturday, June 29th, in the Methodist schoolroom. The function will be opened by Rev. E Tonkin at 2.30.p.m., and will be continued during the evening. In the afternoon admission is free, but in the evening a charge of a silver coin will be made. Gifts or donations may be left with Mrs Sherlock, Frankston. *** WE are informed that tickets are selling freely for the concert to be held in the Frankston Mechanics’ Hall on Saturday evening, 6th July. in aid of the funds of the Langwarrin Camp. A splendid programme by Melbourne artists, will be submitted, and should prove highly enjoyable.

Miss R. Langley, well known in most concert halls in Melbourne, will appear in several songs at the piano. *** THE annual meeting of the Red Cross Society, held on Wednesday, 12th, was only poorly attended; the same little band of energetic workers who attend every meeting. assembled in the hall, and again undertook the work for the current year. A few gentlemen were present and elected the ladies to their respective positions and recorded hearty thanks and applause when the reports of the work put through by the ladies were read out. *** Our Letter Box. TO THE EDITOR. Sir,—The suggestion of ‘Carry-on” in last week’s issue, that a branch of the Returned Soldiers Association should be formed at Frankston, is to my mind a good one, and one that should appeal to all returned soldiers. But could not those who have not been able to take an active part in the great struggle that is now raging, but who have seen service in other wars, be admitted to the membership of the Association, should it be formed? There are several in this district, situated similarly to myself, who would be only too pleased to be members of such an association, and I feel sure the younger soldiers would not wish to debar us from membership. Wishing the proposal every success. Yours etc., C. W. WOOD. *** From the pages of the Mornington Standard, 22 June 1918

A Hard Act to Swallow By Stuart McCullough I’M hopeless at it. As it happens, my entire family is hopeless at it too. Nevertheless, we soldier on, doing our best in an uncaring world. For years, my secret weakness remained beyond the gaze of others and, as such, there was little to worry about. Now it’s a source of ridicule. Whether it’s medicine or a common-as-muck, garden-variety multi-vitamin, it makes no difference. I simply struggle to get them down. I hate to admit it, but I’m slowly coming to terms with the fact that I cannot do as others can in this important area. I am now willing to declare: I’m a dud when it comes to swallowing pills. My wife doesn’t even need a glass of water. This, to me, is the medicinal equivalent to riding bareback on a butter-smeared thoroughbred while wearing a blindfold and knitting a scarf. She can seemingly swallow pills at will with nary a first, let alone a second thought. For ages, I thought this was a special ability, much like being double-jointed or being read other people’s minds, but no. Turns out, she’s far closer to normal than I am in this respect as – by some margin – most people can swallow a pill when the occasion calls for it. I blame childhood. This time, it’s not just a general position, as it’s directly relevant to my current status as an incapable adult. As kids, we were routinely required to chow down on Vitamin C tablets each day in a bid

to keep scurvy at bay. In this respect, it was a tremendous success as I have remained notably scurvy-free my entire life. A fact I have made clear on my Linked-In profile. But vitamin C tablets were gigantic. Swallowing one would be much like trying to swallow a hubcap. Indeed, these tablets were expressly designed to be chewed rather than swallowed;

Nominations are open!

a fact borne out by the fact that they mostly tasted alright, unless you made the fatal mistake of brushing your teeth first, in which case they tasted like twelve types of poison. There was nothing worse than being forced to eat a Vitamin C tablet after you brushed your teeth. It was almost enough to make you want to eat an orange instead. Almost.

The decision to give us chewable vitamin tablets has meant that my ability to swallow various medications and tablets is severely underdeveloped. It’s the same for my siblings, none of whom can consume so much as a Panadol without a sizeable run up. For me, this involves drinking several litres of water in the hope that I can slip a tablet in over my lips and it can simply join the stampede down my throat. Very often, this results in a fairly spectacular choking fit and some very pointed observations about my technique. Apparently, I think about it too much. This, I somewhat ironically think, is true of a great many things, of which swallowing tablets is probably the least consequential. Rather than let things happen naturally, I subject them to a level of scrutiny they don’t otherwise deserve. It has all kinds of consequences. Have you ever really thought about your PIN number? Chances are, if you have, that’s the very moment you’ve forgotten it. Sometimes, pure animal instinct is the way to go. My gag reflex is too well developed. As a result there are just too many things I can’t swallow – like a trade war between the US and Canada or the results of this year’s Eurovision contest (if you’re looking for an excuse to slap bizarre trade tariffs on Europe, then Eurovision is probably as good a place to start as any). There’s not a glass of water big enough that’s going to allow me to

believe that Canada is the root of all evil or that doing a tell-all interview on national television is an effective way to stop drawing attention to yourself or that Main Street Mornington is a road that occasionally looks like a car park, rather than the other way round. It’s just too much to believe. We’ve started to take corrective measures. Just last week, we planted citrus trees in the back yard to develop an alternative source of Vitamin C. They look fantastic and I’ll admit I got caught up in the excitement before reality came crashing in. My wife is confident that it’ll work a treat but I have serious doubts. If I can’t swallow a tablet, the chances of swallowing an orange are pretty remote – those things are huge. Everyone has a weak spot. Superman had his Kryptonite. George Michael his Andrew Ridgeley. I can’t swallow anything that’s apparently good for me. I may as well resign myself to that fact and move on. It could be worse. I take comfort in that I have family members who also suffer the same affliction. They too spent their childhoods chewing on Vitamin C tablets. On the plus side, none of them have scurvy either. I should stop now. All this talk of my deficiencies has given me quite a headache. I should lie down. Maybe have a cup of tea – that always helps. But what I won’t do is try and take a tablet. That, of itself, would be another kind of headache altogether. stuart@stuartmccullough.com

scoreboard Bulldogs bully struggling Rosebud SOUTHERN PENINSULA


By Brodie Cowburn MORNINGTON put on their most complete display of football for the year, claiming a convincing victory over Rosebud at Alexandra Park on Saturday. The two sides, placed 8th and 9th on the ladder coming into the game, looked evenly matched in the first quarter, with the margin only standing at one point Mornington’s way at the first break. Mornington went on to kick ahead in the second quarter but only went into half-time with a 14-point lead on what was a cold and blustery day. Although the game looked alive up until the main break, things got off to a very bad start for Rosebud in the second half, as their star player Greg Bentley was forced off with a muscle strain. Playing a man down on the interchange bench, Rosebud provided little fight in the second half as Mornington put together their most impressive performance for the year. Holding Rosebud goalless in the second half, Mornington eventually ran out with an encouraging 11.22 (88) to 5.7 (37) win. Head coach Simon Goosey said after the game that he was delighted with how his team had performed. “I was happy with how things panned out today. We’ve been pretty good all year and I’ve been reasonably happy with how we’re going. The big positive today was that we didn’t get any injuries. We had to bring in a couple blokes that were a little bit un-

derdone today, so for us to finish off the game as strong as we did today was really pleasing,” he said. Mornington will travel to take on Frankston Bombers at Baxter Park next Saturday. There were only two other matches for the round in MPNFL Division One, with Sorrento, Frankston YCW,

Frankston Bombers, and Mt Eliza enjoying a bye. One of those matches saw Seaford host Pines at Belvedere Reserve in what would prove to be another difficult day for the bottom-placed Seaford side. All eyes were on Pines’ Aaron Edwards who booted an astonishing 12

goals last time he pulled on the boots for his side. While he only managed to score one goal of his own for the game, his team performed admirably to secure a comfortable victory. Pines stamped their authority on the game with a dominant first quarter and never looked like losing, eventually running out winners over Seaford 8.5

(53) to 12.15 (87). Tim Bongetti scored three goals for Pines and was best on ground in his team’s big win. Seaford will travel to take on Frankston YCW next Saturday, who are also struggling for form having lost four consecutive games. Frankston YCW have now shockingly slipped to 5th on the ladder after Saturday’s results. The final game of the split round pitted 4th place Edithvale-Aspendale against Bonbeach at Regent Park. Bonbeach were the underdog side in this clash but started strong to take a three-goal lead into the first break. Edithvale-Aspendale had been poor in front of goal and quickly recovered to regain control of the contest in the second term. Momentum swung back and forth throughout the day, and with the margin standing at less than two goals Edithvale-Aspendale’s way going into the last quarter, the game looked set to go down to the wire. Despite their continued inaccuracy in front of goal, Edithvale-Aspendale were able to just hold on to claim the win, with the final scoreboard reading Edithvale-Aspendale 10.21 (81) to 11.7 (73) Michael Bussey was among the best for Edithvale-Aspendale’s, booting three goals in a win that sees them jump up to 3rd place on the ladder going into Round 11.

Dromana bounce back after shocking maiden loss DIVISION TWO

By Brodie Cowburn DROMANA bounced back to claim a win this Saturday to avenge their first loss for the year in MPNFL Division Two football last weekend. After going down in a nailbiting six-point loss to Red Hill last Sunday, Dromana were faced with a more comfortable task in Crib Point at Dromana Recreation Reserve on Saturday. On paper, this looked like a complete mismatch, as it pitted top of the ladder Dromana against a Crib Point side that had remained rooted to the bottom of the ladder since Round One. Despite everything pointing to a comfortable Dromana win, Crib Point came flying out of the gates to start the match and even went into the half-time break with a shock six-point lead. After the half-time break, Dromana recovered well from being rattled, and quickly regained the lead and kicked away. Ben Holmes was the man who made his mark on the contest, kicking four goals in the second half and five in total to put the game beyond the reach of a brave Crib Point side. Dromana tightened up their defence and held their lowly opponents to just three behinds in the second half, as they eventually ran out comfortable winners 13.19 (97) to 5.9 (39). Elsewhere at Chelsea Reserve, it was a high profile battle of 2nd vs. 3rd place as Chelsea hosted Karingal at home. With the winner set to claim second spot on the ladder, the stakes were high for this much-anticipated contest.


Southern Peninsula News

Shots fired: Karingal failed to make the most of its chances against Chelsea. Picture: Andrew Hurst

Karingal, who defeated Somerville by a comfortable margin last Sunday, started the game well by registering seven scoring shots to Chelsea’s three, but were so wasteful in front of goal that they actually went into quarter time down by a point, only registering two goals and five behinds for the first term. The Bulls worked hard to wrestle their way back in front at the half-time break, but were still being wasteful in front of goal. After the restart of play, Chelsea came out swinging and worked hard to hold Karingal goalless in the third term, taking a narrow seven-point lead into the last quarter. In the final term, Karingal again had more shots on goal, but again they let their chances go to waste, and were made to pay for their poor form in front of goal. 19 June 2018

Chelsea were just able to hold on to the narrow lead as the final siren sounded, running out victors and claiming the win 9.4 (58) to Karingal’s 7.13 (55). Curtis Bywater was again among Chelsea’s best, registering four goals to take his tally to the year to an impressive 37 from 10 games. He is now placed second in the goalkicking race, two goals ahead of Hastings’ Luke Hewitt. Hastings travelled to take on Pearcedale at Pearcedale Recreation Reserve to take on Pearcedale in what would prove to be an uncompetitive contest. Hastings, who sit 4th on the ladder just two games adrift of top place, were highly fancied coming into the clash are certainly lived up to the expectations.

A five-goal first quarter from Hastings set the tone for the rest of the contest, as they ran away with an easy victory over Pearcedale 10.4 (64) to 19.14 (128). Luke Hewitt again contributed with another four-goal performance while his teammates Paul Rogasch and Grant Masterson also had big days in front of goal, kicking six and five goals respectively. Red Hill continued their excellent run of form when they travelled to take on Somerville away from home. Fresh off a thrilling one-goal win over the undefeated Dromana, Red Hill came into this clash full of confidence but were put on the back foot by a fast-starting Somerville who took a one-point lead into the first break. From that point on, Red Hill were much the better side and dominated

the second term with seven more scoring shots than their opponents. Despite creating more chances, they were wasteful in front of goal, kicking two goals and seven behinds and failing to really punish Somerville. Play got back underway for the second half with Red Hill eight points ahead, and although Somerville fought hard to work their way back into the game, Red Hill’s quality proved too strong. The win certainly didn’t come easy for Red Hill, but when they siren sounded they came away with an important four points, taking the win 11.7 (73) to 12.14 (86). At Lloyd Park, Langwarrin hosted Tyabb in what would prove to be a comfortable game for the home side. Their regular target Jesse Murphy was again in blistering form, as he booted six majors to take his tally for the year to 40, which puts him on top of the league’s goalkicking leaderboard. Tyabb were outclassed all day, as Langwarrin ran our victors 20.8 (128) to 6.5 (41). In the final clash of the weekend, Devon Meadows took on Rye at Glover Reserve in a tense contest. The see-sawing affair saw Rye hold a two-point lead at half-time, but their Devon Meadows opponents proved too strong for them in the second half. Devon Meadows’ Michael Theodoridis was among the best in his side’s winning effort, booting six goals in a 13.5 (83) to 10.10 (70) win.


First for Seaford under Morris-Thomas SOCCER

By Craig MacKenzie SEAFORD United recorded its second win of the season and its first under senior coach Matt Morris-Thomas when it defeated Noble Park United 3-2 at North Seaford Reserve on Saturday. Harry McCartney reports that Seaford stunned the visitors in the 27th minute when defender Callum Richardson’s acrobatic overhead kick opened the scoring. Three minutes into the second half Dylan Waugh broke past two defenders before slotting the ball past Noble Park United keeper Andrea Stoilovic to make it 2-0. Seaford fans were in raptures in the 72nd minute after Cam Bryden’s clinical side-foot finish made it 3-0. But a Mladen Djuric free kick in the 80th minute caught Seaford keeper Jimmy Zafiriov off guard and dipped just below the crossbar to make it 3-1 and give the visitors some hope. Five minutes later Nemanja Salamandic made it 3-2 which made for a nervous finish but Seaford held on as it strives to get off the foot of the State 3 South-East ladder. Langwarrin edged out visitor Ballarat City in a seven-goal thriller at Lawton Park on Saturday. The 4-3 result was crucial to Langy’s NPL2 status as it sent Gus Macleod’s men 12 points clear of last-placed Nunawading City with the bottom team expected to be relegated to State League ranks. Langy was active on the last day of the NPL transfer window last week clinching the signatures of striker Michael Kariuki and midfielder Brendan Richardson. Kariuki was signed from South Springvale and was the equal top scorer in State 1 South-East while Richardson was signed from Bulleen and is a former Richmond player. Teenage striker Sam Klepac was released but it’s believed that Langy is keen for him to return next season. Ballarat took just two minutes to open the scoring when a slick interpassing move cut a swathe through the heart of the home side’s defence and a low strike from inside the area by Liam Harding gave Langy keeper Robbie Acs no chance. Shaun Romein’s handball inside the area in the 12th minute was converted from the penalty spot by Liam Baxter who sent Ballarat keeper Aaron Romein the wrong way. A world-class goal from Michael Trigger in the 18th minute made it 2-1 as the Ballarat ace struck the ball from

just inside his attacking half after spotting Acs off his line. Macleod wanted more from Mehdi Sarwari who had been isolated in a wide left role so he took over from Baxter in a central role with the Scot switching to the left. In the 30th minute, Baxter floated a free kick to the back post where Langy defender Andy Mclean charged in and headed home to make it 2-2. Kariuki’s simple and effective pass sent John Kuol clear two minutes from the break and he had no problem slotting the ball past the advancing Ballarat keeper to put Langy ahead. There were a couple more twists and turns in this see-sawing contest as Trigger beat the offside trap in the 60th minute and although Luke Burgess did well to get back and tackle the ball looped over Acs’ head and into goal to make it 3-3. The technical area of both sides were busy now but the most effective change was made by Macleod when he brought on teenager Max Boulton whose drive and energy were clearly evident. As was his touch in the 74th minute when Kariuki sent him clear on the left and Boulton’s square ball was tucked away first time by Kuol for what proved to be the winner in a gripping contest. In NPLW news Southern United lost 4-0 away to Geelong Galaxy United on Saturday. These sides last met two months ago and Galaxy won 11-0. Southern’s under-12s continued their outstanding season by hammering Galaxy 7-1 with goals from Emilia Ingles (3), Taylen Wulf (2), Lauren Rhia and

an own goal while the under-14s came back from two goals down to draw 2-2 with Southern’s goals coming from Holly Wakker and Alex Jones. Southern’s under-16s lost 4-0 while the under-19s lost 2-0. Mornington continued to zero in on second spot in State 1 South-East when it won 2-1 away to Malvern City last weekend. A Keegan Ziada header in the 14th minute put Mornington ahead but Daniel Bowman equalised for the home side in the 30th minute. Mornington had signed 23-year-old Colombian striker Omar Guardiola from New Zealand club Southern United last month and he replaced Ziada in the 68th minute. Guardiola left an indelible impression on spectators and Malvern City keeper Jamie Greygoose with a spectacular bicycle kick in the 78th minute to give the visitors all three points. Mornington senior coach Dale White has had to return to the UK for family reasons and is expected to miss two games. Andy Mason was in charge last weekend and will continue in the role for Saturday’s important away clash with league leader Manningham United. In State 2 South-East news Frankston Pines and Doncaster Rovers drew 1-1 at Monterey Reserve on Saturday. Rovers struck first when James Kalifatidis converted from the penalty spot in the 23rd minute. CJ Hodgson started and finished the move that led to the equaliser in the 59th minute when he drove towards goal on the right then released Iosa Saemo who

squared the ball and Hodgson calmly slotted it home. While Pines earned a point in the fight to avoid relegation State 2 neighbour Peninsula Strikers lost 4-1 at home to title candidate Mazenod last weekend and slumped to last spot on the ladder. Adrian D’Ortenzio (18th, 72nd minutes), Lennon Whewell (3rd) and Jack Haggerty (77th) scored for Mazenod while captain Tommy Hawkins (10th) replied for Strikers. Goalkeeper Chris England (exDandenong Thunder), Wahid Hashimi (from Morwell Pegasus) and former Nunawading defender Basel Bargi made their debuts for Strikers. They are among a host of new signings as club president Trevor Johnston is determined to keep the club in State 2. “We will be super aggressive this week in signing some more players and there is big news to come,” said Johnston. The Centenary Park outfit has also signed South Melbourne striker Naseem Rasekh, central defender David Selan (from Slovenian club NK Velesova), goalkeeper Dilan Mery (Kingston City) and central defender Mohammad Rasuli (Mirboo North). Skye United’s promotion push in State 3 South-East stalled when it lost 2-1 to Brighton at Dendy Park on Saturday. Alex Greatorex capitalised on a defensive error in the first half but Skye United responded 10 minutes later after a nice interpassing move between Billy Painting and Mohamad Elhassan ended with the latter picking out Cam Leopold whose volley made it 1-1. A Brighton counter-attack in the sec-

ond half gave the home side all three points when Digby Mooney found the back of the net. In State 4 South the anticipated influx of new players at Baxter never materialised and senior coach Francis Beck sprang a huge surprise when he started up front in Saturday’s 5-1 thrashing at the hands of Springvale City. Beck was the club’s previous first choice keeper and his last senior match was in 2017. He was substituted in the 61st minute but by then the damage had been done with Springvale leading 3-1 and further goals to Armin Kerla and substitute Zurijet Karic completed the rout. Sandringham’s 2-1 win over Noble Park pushed Baxter into 10th spot in the league and firmly embroiled the club in the relegation dogfight. Somerville Eagles lost 3-1 at home last weekend and now lies fifth in State 5 South. “We came up against a good team but shot ourselves in the foot with our poor start,” Somerville player-coach Dave Greening said. “The second half today showed us when we play well we can compete but gifting teams a two-goal head start is a killer.” Aspendale recorded its biggest win of the State 5 South season when it overran Bunyip District 6-1 at Jack Grut Reserve on Saturday. The Stingrays put this contest to bed by half-time thanks to goals from Ryan Mravljak, Domenic Paul, Alex Taylor-Hirst and a season-first from Sam Timuska-Carr while Bunyip’s sole response came from Vincent Makota in the 26th minute. Matt Corra made it 5-1 three minutes into the second half and Paul notched his brace in the 67th minute. It was Taylor-Hirst’s final match before heading overseas for work reasons. Next weekend’s games: FRIDAY, 8pm: Rowville Eagles v Somerville Eagles (Park Ridge Reserve).

Chelsea knock off first Mornington set the goose loose FOOTBALL placed Shepparton BASKETBALL

BIG V Division One competition was headlined by a top of the table clash between Shepparton Gators and Chelsea Gulls this Saturday. The two sides lined up against each other at Shepparton Sports Stadium in a matchup between two sides considered among the favourites to take out the championship at the end of the season. It was a slow start for the Chelsea Gulls though, who found themselves in an uncomfortable position down by 14 points at the conclusion of the first quarter of play. With their backs to the walls, Chelsea showed their quality to fight their way back and whittle back the lead and only found themselves behind by a couple of points going into the final quarter. A final quarter blitz in which Chelsea outscored their opponents by 11 points, the Gulls were able to grind out a hard-fought victory, with the scores finishing Shepparton (83) to Chelsea (91). Corey Standerfer and Matthew Brasser again led from the front for the Gulls, scoring an astonishing 61 points between the two of them to help drag their side over the line. Elsewhere in Division One, Western Port Steelers secured 4th place on the table after a thumping win over the Sunbury Jets. The 11th placed Sunbury Jets went

into their clash at home as underdogs but were helped by their decent record at Boardman Stadium. Western Port Steelers were relentless in their dominating victory with Dylan Travis being the standout performer with 28 points, shooting at 80 per cent. Helped by a handy 36 points by players off the bench, Western Port ran away with an easy victory by a whopping 46 points, Western Port (107) to Sunbury Jets (61). In the Big V Division Two Women’s competition, the Mornington Breakers were faced with the mammoth task off knocking top placed Cragieburn Eagles from their perch and handing them just their second defeat of the season. Despite the odds being stacked against them, Mornington showed they were not to be taken lightly in the first quarter, going into the first break with a five-point lead having put their highly fancied opponents on the back foot. Cragieburn fought back to take the lead from Mornington, but the 8th place Breakers kept within reaching distance of the victory. Mornington Captain Fiona Darnell led from the front with an admirable 13 point performance, but ultimately the Eagles proved just too strong for their brave Mornington opponents. The Mornington Breakers fought valiantly but just fell to Cragieburn with the final scores Mornington (49) to Cragieburn (55).

By Brodie Cowburn MORNINGTON seniors head coach and former champion footballer Simon Goosey turned heads on Saturday afternoon after he was spotted making a surprise return to the field for Mornington’s reserves side. Goosey, now 50 years old, had a legendary playing career in the MPNFL with Mornington, kicking close to 2000 goals over 300 games before turning his attention to coaching. Much to the surprise and delight of the crowd at Alexandra Park, the legendary forward again ran out for his old club in what would prove to be a triumphant return to football. Goosey’s appearance was the result of an injury crisis that has struck Mornington, resulting in a number of coaches having to dust off their old playing boots to lend a hand when needed. “We’ve got seventeen injuries at the moment. I played about half a game just to help out the kids. We’ve got so many injuries and a couple of blokes were crook today so me and another coach had to play,” Goosey said. Despite a successful return to playing football, Goosey was quick to shut down any speculation that he might be a regular fixture on the field going forward. “No that wouldn’t be nice, I’m a bit old,” he said when asked if he would consider a permanent comeback. Goosey, donning number 41, remained firmly in the goal square during his time on the field but managed to boot a couple of goals before leaving the ground at three-quarter time to prepare for coaching the seniors later that day. His two-goal contribution helped the Mornington reserves to a comfortable 75 point win over Rosebud 15.12 (102) to 4.3 (27). Goosey went on to coach his seniors side to a convincing win over Rosebud later in the afternoon.
