Century gives Lions something to roar about MEMBERS of Lions clubs around Australia are celebrating 100 years since the service organisation was founded in the United States and 70 years in Australia. The organisation was brought to Australia by William Tresise who was a member of a service club that had an upper age limit. He was in the United States in 1946 and met a member of Lions who told him there was no age limit. A year later Lismore Lions Club was formed and within 30 years there were 1000 clubs in Australia including many in Melbourne’s southeast and on the Mornington Peninsula. Members of two peninsula clubs were out and about last week to celebrate the anniversaries. See page 3

Toasting success: Rye Lions donated a commercial toaster to Tootgarook Primary School for its breakfast program. At the presentation in front of the whole school were, from left rear, Lions Marj Beard, Helen Turner, Andrew Buchanan, Bob Beard and Lions president Graeme McKay with volunteer Kelly Driver and principal Wayne Whitworth (both holding toaster).

Revolt over shire ‘muzzle’ bid Keith Platt keith@mpnews.com.au MORNINGTON Peninsula Shire councillors have rejected a proposed media policy that limited their ability to make public statements and have “off the record” conversations with journalists. The draft stated that information about the shire could only be released to the media by the mayor Cr Bev Colomb, CEO Carl Cowie, and communications, media and events manager Mark Kestigian. The policy was drawn up by Mr Kestigian who withdrew it from the Tuesday 13 June council meeting agenda after a majority of councillors expressed concern that it restricted their roles as elected representatives of the public. Cr Colomb told The News that the draft media policy was “a very

early mock-up and [councillors] decided they wanted to create a media and communications policy from the ground up”. The deputy mayor Bryan Payne said the proposed media policy “treated councillors as employees” and failed to give them the “respect” deserved by elected representatives. When outlining the need for rewriting the media policy, Mr Kestigian said “media scrutiny and engagement present risks to the shire’s reputation and community confidence in the council and shire operations”. He said the policy was designed to “help manage constructive working relationships” with the media and “present a consistent and positive image of shire activities and services”. Once adopted, the policy would ensure communications with the media were “strategically managed with only authorised representatives communicating with media outlets”.

The policy also acknowledges that “media have a vital role in holding [the shire] to account on behalf of the community”. It warns against whistleblowing saying that there were “procedures” available to report “improper conduct or detrimental action and protect people who make these reports”. The draft policy states that Cr Colomb, Mr Cowie and Mr Kestigian “are authorised to speak to the media on matters of [shire] policy and operations”. The draft includes the statement that “media inquiries are welcomed and will be responded to promptly”. Mr Kestigian “declined to comment” three days after being emailed questions from The News about his “draft” media policy. Cr Payne said the proposed policy inhibited the ability of the mayor Cr Colomb to speak with the media without first approaching communications manager Mr Kestigian or CEO Mr

Cowie. “Cr Colomb is very capable and doesn’t need to go to them first. If there’s an issue relating to my ward [Nepean], I’ll speak on it,” he said. Cr Payne said the shire’s public relations was being handled “extremely poorly”. “And you don’t do it by handcuffing your [elected] people.” Cr Payne cited a rent increase for The Hastings Club as an example of the shire’s poor public relations The increase recently adopted by the shire was based on the club’s income from poker machines. “People got the idea there was no basis for it [the rent increase], but when you look at the income from poker machines, it’s a very reasonable rent,” Cr Payne said. “The shire never really told the public why [there was an increase], which made it difficult for the ward councillor [Julie Edge] to explain.”

Cr Payne, a former CEO of the City of Springvale, said a similar situation existed at Noble Park where a football club with pokies was charged a much higher rent than had been historically paid by The Hastings Club. Details of the draft media policy were first aired on the morningtonpeninsulabandicoot.com website. The website’s owner, David Harrison, a former contributor to The News, said his article about the policy attracted 900 hits in three days. “It went through the roof. There were plenty of comments left [on the site], but I’ve nothing from the shire,” he said. As well as nominating just three people to speak to the media on shire issues, including emergencies and emergency relief and “political matters”, the media policy describes how councillors will be asked to approve quotes attributed to them before the release of statements to the media.

Hear them roar with pride for 100-year milestone PENINSULA Lions clubs are celebrating the 100th anniversary of Lions Clubs International, and the 70th anniversary of the organisation in Australia. The first Lions club met in Chicago in the United States on 7 June 1917. Lions Clubs International now has about 46,000 clubs and 1.4 million members worldwide. American founder and businessman Melvin Jones believed people who were successful in business possessed the tenacity, drive and determination to do good work in the wider community. The first club in Australia was founded by William Tresise at Lismore in NSW in September 1947. Australia was the 18th country to join Lions Clubs International. When Tresise died in 1975, Lions Australia had almost 1000 clubs. There are now more than 1200 in Australia and Papua New Guinea. To mark the centenary, Lions clubs in Australia are taking part in the Community 100 Program, donating more than $100,000 to more than 100 projects in the categories of Youth, Vision, Hunger, and Environment. Helen Turner of Rye Lions said Lions Clubs International was a secular and politically non-aligned community service organisation that sought “to create and foster and spirit of understanding among the people of the world”.

“Volunteers raise funds to meet humanitarian needs whether local, national and international, including disaster relief, support for the environment, medical research, and support for youth and older people,” she said. Lions in Australia have supported development of the bionic ear, cervical cancer vaccine, and research into diabetes and childhood cancer. Two recent Lions’ events on the peninsula were the Rye club presenting a commercial toaster to Tootgarook Primary School for its breakfast program, and McCrae Lions erecting a sign near the town’s famous lighthouse that lists projects supported by Lions. The Rye club recently donated $2000 to southern peninsula charity Food For All, which puts food on the tables of struggling families. Ms Turner said Lions clubs were a valuable source of support for the community – “and we always need new members”. Details online at: rye. vic.lions.org.au On 7 June Australia Post issued a stamp to mark the Lions’ centenary. Mike Hast Sign of commitment: At McCrae, Lions members, from left, Jack Milledge, Nina Blythe, Tony Leonard, Danny O’Neill, Ron Cocking and Ros Ferres celebrated the erection of a sign in front of the lighthouse listing projects supported by Lions.

Pressure on state over three-storey houses Mike Hast team@mpnews.com.au PRESSURE is mounting on the state government over planning changes that will permit three-storey houses up to 11 metres high in 10 towns on the Mornington Peninsula. The 10 towns “eligible” for three-storey houses are Capel Sound (formerly Rosebud West), Rosebud, Dromana, parts of Mt Martha, Mornington, Baxter, Somerville, Tyabb, Hastings and Bittern. A meeting to explain the changes will be held at Hastings on Thursday night with leading Melbourne planning specialist Professor Michael Buxton as guest speaker. Professor Buxton of RMIT University spent 12 years in senior management with Victorian government planning and environment agencies in the 1980s and 1990s, and has been a frequent critic of planning changes made by both Labor and Coalition governments. At a rally in Melbourne on 8 June, Professor Buxton warned the changes would benefit the development industry at the expense of residents, including those on the Mornington Peninsula. Last Friday Mornington state MP David Morris was expected to meet with shire councillors and shire officers to plan how to best oppose the changes, which he said were counter to the provisions of the Mornington Peninsula Localised Planning Statement of 2014. Members of peninsula community groups have been emailing and phoning each other since the Hastings rally was announced by shire councillor David Gill. “How can we stop these changes?” has been the rallying cry. Peninsula Speaks, set up by Peter Avery and Christine Haydon in 2008 to promote protection

of the environment, is co-sponsoring the planning meeting, which will be held at 7pm on 22 June at Hastings Community Hub, 1973 Frankston-Flinders Rd. In state parliament on 7 June, David Morris said the planning changes meant “buildings of up to 11 metres and potentially three storeys can now be constructed without a permit”. Mr Morris said this was “being implemented across the Mornington Peninsula, and … will undoubtedly destroy forever the intrinsic coastal character of our towns and villages”. He said changes to the general residential zone were in conflict with the Mornington Peninsula Localised Planning Statement, which was released in 2014 to great fanfare during the term of the LiberalNationals state government. “The planning statement sought to recognise, maintain and enhance the special character of the peninsula, and maintain and enhance the character of our towns and villages. The recent changes clearly are in conflict with that state policy,” Mr Morris said. The shire’s mayor in 2014, Cr Antonella Ceil, welcomed the planning statement and described it as a “monumental moment” in the history of the Mornington Peninsula. “As Melbourne’s population rapidly accelerates towards eight million by 2051, the peninsula will continue to play a range of complementary roles in tourism, recreation, agriculture and manufacturing, but our community is clear that we are not ‘suburbia’, and don’t want to be.” Peninsula Speaks co-founder Peter Avery said his group would offer to coordinate opposition to the planning changes. “We need to firewall the peninsula from Melbourne suburban development.”

‘High-risk’ sisters urge genetic cancer check By Cheryl Anne Brodie

Cakes and Ale and Antipodes Bookshop, Sorrento, will hold the lunches on the fourth Friday of each month, with an author in conversation with a journalist (Gerard Elson will converse with Patric). Coming lunch “guests” are Melanie Cheng author of Australia Day, on 28 July; Jock Serong, On the Java Ridge, 25 August; and, Jane Rawson, From the Wreck, 22 September. The literary lunches (three-courses and wine for $85) run 12.30pm-3.30pm at Cakesand Ale Bistro, 102 Ocean Beach Rd, Sorrento, call 5984 4995. DECKING

MICHELLE May and her sister Julie Gaspero

Mulgrave, said. “It is best to discuss this with the family doctor or a breast specialist and genetic counseller.” Genetic testing was highlighted in 2013 by actor Angelina Jolie when announcing she had undergone a preventative double mastectomy. “If we were not aware of our family history we wouldn’t have been tested, and we wouldn’t know our options,” Ms Gaspero said.

TWO sisters are trying to increase awareness of the need for genetic testing among members of cancer-prone families. Tyabb nurse Julie Gaspero and her sister Michelle May of Traralgon, say that without the test they would not have known they have up to 80 per cent per cent chance of developing breast or ovarian cancer. The test looks for BRAC1 and BRAC2 genes in both males and females. The sisters were tested at the Peter MacCallum Cancer Centre in Melbourne after discussing their family’s history, specifically cancer, with their parents. The high risk for the women has been linked back to their father and aunt, who were both diagnosed with cancer. The genetic test for the sisters was free because they had a family history of breast cancer. Ms Gaspero said it was a mystery why doctors had not asked about their family’s medical history. The sisters believe it may be an area for improvement into the prevention of disease, especially one as prevalent as cancer and they want to make others aware that the onus was on them to follow up investigation into the risk shown by their family history. “Genetic testing, specifically for the BRCA1 and BRCA2 gene, is highly recommended where a family history of breast and or ovarian cancer is present in first or second degree relatives below the ages of 50,” oncoplastic surgeon Dr Nicole Yap, of The Valley Private Hospital,

WORTH UP TO $1,000 *CONDITIONS APPLY Sweet success: A Rose postcard of Portsea in the early 1930s. Note the size of the cypress trees. The windmills were used to pump water.

Story of Rose postcards HISTORY buffs know about the Rose Series of postcards produced by Victorian photographer George Rose’s business, the Rose Stereograph Company. Many scenes of the Mornington Peninsula were captured by Rose himself before his death in 1942 by which time he was considered one of the Australia’s best photographers of the late 19th and early 20th centuries. Rose was born in Clunes in 1861 and later worked in his father’s boot-making business in Prahran while studying photography. In 1880 he founded the Rose Stereograph Company and became famous for producing stereographs, or stereoviews, which gave the illusion of being in 3D when seen through a hand-held viewer, a big craze of the era.

Rose produced stereoviews of the Western Front during the First World War. In all, he took about 9000 images in about 38 countries. As stereographs lost popularity in the 1920s, Rose switched to production of postcards and decorative cards, and he and the photographers who followed took thousands of scenes around Victoria as well as interstate that became iconic images of Australian life. Many are in the Latrobe Library. The story of George Rose is the topic of a talk by Mornington Peninsula Shire’s digitisation officer Murray Adams at Nepean Historical Society’s July meeting. It is at 2pm on Friday 7 July at Sorrento Museum, 827 Melbourne Rd, Sorrento. Tea and coffee. Gold coin entry for visitors.

Drivers fined after royal weekend

Nat White Wayne Etcell and partner Dawn Tonge ropolitan Volunteer of the Year, known as the Dame Elisabeth Murdoch Award. The OAM was awarded for service to the community through a range of roles including as a bail justice since 2012, a Justice of the Peace since 2003, and Tyabb firey since 2002. Volunteer, Tyabb Fire Station, Country Fire Authority, since 2002. Ray Morgan received his medal for service to the community through health and education programs. A police officer for 35 years, he has been a member of the Younger Onset Dementia Program at Alzheimer’s Australia since 2014, and a member of the Police Community Encounters Program and the Custody Encounters Program at

Glen Waverley Police Academy since 2014. Mr Morgan contributed to a DVD called Living with Younger Onset Dementia, and appeared on the SBS program Insight in 2015 talking about his experiences of living with younger onset dementia. Nat White is a living legend on the peninsula as a pioneer of winemaking in the modern era (wine grapes had been planted as early as 1886 but these vineyards had been abandoned by the 1920s). Mr White and his wife Rosalie bought a failed lemon orchard at Red Hill in 1975 and, inspired by their travels in France the previous decade, planted seven experimental grape varietals. Main Ridge Estate winery was opened in 1978. They pressed their first vintage in their kitchen

at home in Mt Eliza in 1979 – 20 litres. The first commercial vintage came the following year, and the Whites were granted the first cellar door liquor licence on the peninsula. Last Monday, Mr White was awarded an OAM for service to the wine industry. The couple ran the winery for almost 40 years, selling the business in late 2015 to the Sexton family and retiring to Flinders, although Mr White remains a consultant. His OAM citation states that he was the peninsula’s first qualified winemaker, a foundation member of Mornington Peninsula Vignerons Association and a committee member for 36 years, and a ‘consultant, mentor and educator to winemakers for 40 years’. Mike Hast

POLICE detected more than 8300 traffic offences and more than 800 crime offences during the four days of Operation Regal over the Queen’s Birthday long weekend. More than 3150 motorists were caught speeding and 418 motorists fined for using their mobile phones, an increase of 23 and 28 per cent respectively on last year. One in every 15 drivers tested furnished a positive result for drugs while 245 drink drivers were caught after more than 147,200 drivers were tested. Road Policing Command Acting Assistant Commissioner Debra Robertson said the number of people found to be speeding as well as using their phones was a risk to the community that could be easily avoided. “I’m not sure what it will take for motorists to heed the warnings,” Ms Robertson said. “Does it have to be the loss of a loved one for the message to get through?” Two people were killed over the weekend, a 62-year-old male motorcyclist in Baxter and a 25-year-old man off-road after the mini-bike he was riding collided head-on with another bike at Holly Plains State Park. Other infringements issued across the weekend, include: 195 disqualified/suspended drivers; 354 unlicensed drivers; 808 unregistered vehicles; 418 mobile phone offences; 549 disobey signs/signals; 70 vehicle impounds; and, 218 seat belt offences.

Calls for comment on ferry plans SEAROAD Ferries CEO Matt McDonald wants “local input” into the company’s plans for a new ferry terminal and “significant local infrastructure upgrades” at Sorrento. Searoad announced the project in April and Mornington Peninsula Shire has since started a planning scheme amendment process with the state government. The amendment was sought after shire officers told councillors that under present zonings the transport terminal at Sorrento pier should be run by Parks Victoria. The shire wants the state to agree to amend the planning scheme and override the prohibition. The proposed terminal will be 9.5 metres high and include a cafe, shop, souvenir shop, “Museum at the Bay” and offices for the ferry operator.

The plan also includes a new ticketing building and a larger staff car park. The terminal will have a retractable boarding gantry for passengers to board the ferry directly from the building. “The Searoad Ferries proposal provides for a modern facility that is capable of servicing the local and tourist passenger numbers between Sorrento and Queenscliff.,” Mr McDonald said. “The terminal will have increased accessibility for older people and those with a disability. We also plan to offer more car parking spaces, sheltered waiting areas, bathrooms and a retail area that serves refreshments. “With support from the local community and government, the proposal also includes plans for upgrades for local transport infrastructure along the

Esplanade and the foreshore.” Mr McDonald said the route across the bay is “the busiest passenger and car ferry service in Australia”. He said the public, businesses and local organisations can comment on the plans “in person at our community information centre or at Mornington Peninsula Shire, online or via a letter to our office”. Searoad Ferries community information centre is in the former helipad building, 4 Hotham Rd, Sorrento. Details: www.searoad.com.au/ sorrento-terminal. Plans are also available at Mornington Peninsula shire offices and correspondence can be emailed to sorrentoterminal@searoad.com.au or mailed to PO Box 214, Queenscliff 3225.

Market bid for auction man AUCTIONEER Andy Reid, pictured, will be wielding his hammer and hoping his voice will draw a crowd of football fans when he steps up at Mornington’s Wednesday market on 28 June. For 20 minutes from midday Mr Reid, of freelance auctioneers SoldBy Auctions will be calling for bids for framed packs of action cards featuring Richmond’s Dustin Martin, Geelong’s Patrick Dangerfield and former Collingwood champion Dane Swan. Money raised from the sale will go to Clean as Casper mobile showers, a charity which provides a mobile shower service for homeless people. Clean as Casper was started in 2015 by Steve and Adele Winterton after Steve had been a volunteer with Orange Sky Laundry, a mobile laundry for the homeless. “Most people have the luxury of starting their day with a nice warm shower, and in the evening, after a long hard day, we again have the opportunity to have a warm relaxing shower and wash our day away,” Mr Winterton says. “This ritual can make us feel better immediately, and helps improve our frame of mind.” He says there are more than 2500 homeless people in and around Melbourne, including 600 in Frankston. “After a rough night’s sleep in the cold, the rain, the heat and humidity, they start their day exactly where they left off the night before and do not get to finish it by washing away their day.” Mr Reid his charity auction “concept” was aimed at helping charities “raise some money without having to put huge amounts of effort in. I’m so proud to be able to use my skills as a professional auctioneer to bring a shopping centre to a standstill for charity- not only for the funds raised but also the increased awareness towards great causes,” he said. “I’ll be excited to see the reaction of the crowd. We’ll be live-streaming the auction too, so the event will be seen around the world.” Keith Platt

Author’s gloomy view as ‘angels’ leave our skies Keith Platt keith@mpnews.com.au WATCHING as a pair of lightweight, sharp-eyed swallows built a mud nest under the eaves of a house in Seaford has, decades later, led to Geoffrey Maslen writing two books warning of the dangers facing “angels of the air” in Australia and overseas. Editor and author Maslen was inspired by the swallows. “They were the trigger for my interest in birds,” he said on Thursday. After years of writing books and articles for newspapers and magazines, three years ago the former lecturer in education decided it was time to “write the bird book – something more important than articles for The Age”. But early research for the book he envisaged as “a celebration of birds to be called something like Angels of the Air”, soon revealed 22 species had become extinct since the arrival of Europeans in Australia and the ongoing threat birds were facing as a result of climate change. “The change from writing about how wonderful they are to how threatened they are came when I discovered how many species are near to extinction, and climate change is just getting more serious,” Maslen says. “Both books are a result of my realisation about the threat to birds – a further 150 in Australia alone are endangered – and how little humans are doing to stop the extinction process.” The books, An Uncertain Future: Australian Birdlife in Danger and Too Late: How We Lost the Battle with

Birds of a feather: The beach stone curlew, top, and eastern curlew are included among photographs in an exhibition by Rohan Clarke at Coolart Homestead and Wetlands. They also illustrate a book about the demise of birds by author Geoffrey Maslen, right. Picture: Gary Sissons

Climate Change will be launched by Sean Dooley at Coolart Homestead and Wetlands, Somers, on 1 July. Former Greens leader and senator and environmentalist Dr Bob Brown states in his introduction to An Uncertain Future that the book is a “clarion call for Australia’s brilliant but disappearing birds”. Maslen is a less optimistic, telling The News that “we’ve probably reached the point where it’s too late … cataclysms will wipe out most of life on earth, including us”. “I hold fairly gloomy prospects for the future of life on earth,” he says, adding that governments around the world cannot be relied on to lead the way.

Research for the bird book took about three years and the 128-page companion book on climate change was written during the editing of An Uncertain Future: Australian Birdlife in Danger, which is illustrated with photos by Dr Rohan Clarke. Book launch guest Sean Dooley, who is also known as Birdman and is editor of Australian Birdlife magazine, holds the record for spotting the most species of Australian birds in one year. Regarded as Australia’s most famous twitcher, Dooley has also written for TV comedies like Full Frontal, Hamish and Andy and Spicks and Specks, and is author of books The Big Twitch and Cooking with Baz. Maslen’s backyard in Seaford is

designed to attract native birds, although he says some species have become too dominant, sometimes at their own peril. Noisy miners, a honeyeater that lives in colonies, drive out other birds, including the once-common yellow and red wattlebird. “We created ideal conditions for the noisy miners, which, in the long run, self-destruct by driving away the smaller birds that eat the insects that destroy trees.” Maslen’s rather ineffective solution is to throw stones at noisy miners. The equally noisy but more appreciated lorikeet has also “invaded” suburban Melbourne, but Maslen says their occupation is more of a return than colonisation.

“The lorikeets were migratory but now stay here all year because of the flowering trees we’ve planted.” Although claiming it’s all too late to save the birds, Maslen hopes he is proved wrong, and that his two books will lead to better results. Geoffrey Maslen’s books An Uncertain Future: Australian Birdlife in Danger and Too Late: How We Lost the Battle with Climate Change will be launched by Sean Dooley at Coolart’s Observatory at 2pm on 1 July followed by a book signing at the homestead. Dr Rohan Clarke’s photographs from the book are now on display at Coolart Homestead and will be auctioned at 3.30pm.

Pokies politics in play for election Neil Walker neil@mpnews.com.au A PUSH against pokies is being planned in the lead up to next year’s state election by a group trying to enlist councils to the anti-pokies cause. The Alliance for Gambling Reform wants councils to support a campaign calling on both sides of politics in the lead up to next year’s state election to act on pokies reform. Alliance media and communications advisor Stephen Mayne addressed Kingston Council at a public meeting to hear council budget submissions last week. He asked council to get behind the campaign to rein in pokies losses by joining the group as a “tier one” contributor and pitch in $25,000 to the campaign. “The fact that Kingston is in the top ten in the state for pokies losses is disappointing and I know it is a concern for your council,” he said at the meeting. Mr Mayne – founder of the Crikey news site, a former City of Melbourne councillor and shareholder activist –noted $83.4 million was lost to pokies across the Kingston municipality in 2015-16. “A very large amount of money. Australia runs the world’s most addictive and dangerous poker machines so you can lose thousands of dollars an hour on our poker machines.” He said Australians “have the lamentable prize” of being the world’s biggest gamblers per capita racking up $23 billion a year in losses including “about half of that” on pokies. Mr Mayne said the alliance effectively wants to run “an auction” and lobby the Liberal and Labor parties to publicly declare their position on gambling reform before the election.

“Who can put up the best reform package? That’s everything from maximum $1 bets … [to] increasing the tax which is discounted for some pokies operators, reducing the hours, the marketing to children,” he said. The Alliance for Gambling Reform website states the group is “a collaboration of organisations with a shared concern about the deeply harmful and unfair impacts of gambling and its normalisation in Australian culture. “We campaign for reforms of the gambling industry that reduce the harm it causes. We are 100 per cent funded by donations from individuals and foundations that do not have any ties with the gambling industry. We are not  affiliated with any political party.” Moreland, Greater Dandenong, Monash, Whittlesea and Melbourne councils are listed as “Alliance leaders” on the alliance site. Frankston Council is listed among several councils as an “Alliance supporter”. Alliance leaders contribute financially to the group’s campaigns. Organisations on the board are the Australian Inter-Church Gambling Taskforce, Gambling Impact Society NSW, Monash Council, The Salvation Army, The Victorian Local Government Association, Uniting Church, Victoria Inter-Church Gambling Taskforce and Whittlesea Interagency Taskforce on Gambling. Activist group GetUp! is listed as a supporter. The Reverend Tim Costello is a spokesman for the Alliance for Gambling Reform. Former state Labor MP Kelvin Thomson joined the alliance as a campaign manager late last year. Kingston councillors will consider joining the alliance campaign and contributing the requested $25,000 later this month.

Dog walkers are also beach cleaners, come and see Dogs are wonderful creatures. They bring so much joy and happiness to millions of people, except John Cain who obviously is not a dog lover (“Not dogs of war” Letters 6/6/17). His unsubstantiated accusations regarding dogs is absolute nonsense. There are no dogs attacking people or other dogs at McCrae beach. As responsible dog owners we always pick up our dog droppings, as well as broken glass, plastic waste and rubbish. We have to do this as the mechanical rake can’t seem to find its way to our beach. The culture of the McCrae dog walkers is one of sharing the beach with everyone, and letting other people enjoy our dogs, as we do. Why are we banned for eight hours during the day on a deserted beach? This is against the wishes of most dog people. The rules are too severe, everyone I’ve spoken to agrees it should be leash free for six months, and I’m sure an extra hour in the morning during daylight saving would not impact on anyone. We are looking into more appropriate rules so we can use an underutilised area better. John Cain should get up early one morning and join me on the beach, so he can observe for himself the wonderful people and dogs who use this resource. I’ve been walking this beach for 39 years and have never experienced any trouble. My dogs have always been well trained, friendly, socialised and obedient. Ron Moore and “Gloria” (my beautiful dog), Rosebud

Beach benefits In relation to Ron Moore’s letter (“Change offleash rule in the off season” Letters 30/5/17) I greatly support the idea of this change. I am a young mum with a newborn baby; I have walked this beach with my dog every day of my pregnancy and now walk every day with my new baby and our family dog. I cannot be expected to try get out of the house every day by 9am to get to our local beach to allow myself and my son to not only enjoy our beach but to let our dog do what she loves best, chasing her ball on the sand. I can also not be expected to do this after 5pm when it is dark. As a mum it is hard to get out of the house with a new baby and this beach and the community that walks there every day is the one thing that gets us out of the house to maintain a healthy lifestyle. How am I meant to raise my child to have good responsible pet ownership skills, a sense of community and knowledge on how to care for our environment and ecosystem if the council puts restrictions in place that will desert a popular beach in the off-season? And in regards to John Cain’s letter (“Not dogs of war” Letters 6/6/17) I only walk at this beach because in the past year of walking there every day I have not experienced one single dog attack, the beach is incredibly clean and I trust

every man and his dog on that beach around my child as I know the dogs are well trained and good members of our community. Please join my son, our dog and me on our morning walk so you too can see this. Ebony Lewis (Chet and Mish), McCrae

Restrict dog owners Paula Polson, (“Inclusive dog walkers” Letters 13/6/17) has obviously only read the parts of my letter about irresponsible dog owners that annoyed her. The various very responsible dog walking groups were never mentioned. I said some dog owners, not all. While I have not owned a dog for some years, some of my dear friends belong to dog walking groups. My beef is with people who should not be permitted to own a dog and who allow their canine to run amok while abusing and threatening those who complain to them regarding the wayward mutt. Only this week there was a news story of how a dog owner in Brighton was left bleeding from a serious throat injury from a powerful dog that was unmuzzled and, obviously, too powerful for the female owner to control. The dog had attacked the man’s dog and when he came to its aid, it then attacked him grabbing him by the throat. What happened then beggars belief, the woman vamoosed in the opposite direction with the savage dog, leaving this man bleeding from a serious neck wound to be attended too by others. That’s the sort of dog owner I was referring too. What is needed is for Mornington Peninsula Shire to engage more rangers to control these feral owners and their dogs. Perhaps the shire could channel some of the money going into unnecessary consultants fees to putting more feet on the ground to control the foreshore and enforce the local laws that should be obeyed by everyone. My words were neither unwarranted nor ill informed. John Cain, McCrae

Unreasonable cost The charge of $1108 for processing a straightforward Freedom of Information request is totally unreasonable, as the information asked for should be tracked as standard KPIs (key performance indicators) if [Mornington Peninsula Shire’s] animal shelter is being competently managed (“FoI bill stuns animal advocates” The News 13/6/17). Further, the information should be publicly available as a matter of course as part of the shire’s standard reporting, and regularly provided to the senior management. Proper governance would also mean that the shelter has clear objectives relating to these KPIs to give reference points for the information collected and reported. The self-defeating practices of the shelter suggest that the management has no sense of what it’s purpose and goals are. The CEO and his team should treat this as a wake-up call. Simon Westfold, Bittern

Unfair share After reading the headline “Two sides, but different coin for towns” (The News 13/6/17) it is high time this inequitable distribution of Mornington Peninsula Shire’s funds ceased. Obviously since the decision to move from single councillor representation in 11 wards to the present situation of multi-councillor representation giving Port Philip side eight councillors across three wards as opposed to three councillors only representing three wards on the Western Port side, the weight of numbers are stacked one way. Just taking the festival funding allocation of $141,000 to Australia Day in Mornington for a one-day outsourced event as opposed to a measly $10,000 for Hastings as one example and then also compare that with the $19,000 the Western Port Festival received to run its threeday festival conducted solely by volunteers in February 2017 is a disgrace. The Western Festival group was formed in 1987 after the Shire of Hastings decided against conducting Hastings Day in-house and allocated the committee $12,000 assessed as being the cost incurred annually since the inaugural event in 1969. To think that amount has only increased by $7000 over 30 years, notwithstanding use of office space in Hastings Hall, is far from equitable and highlights the need for a dramatic change of attitude from shire councillors and officers. The economic divide, both socially and materialistically, between the two sides is fast becoming a chasm. Brian L Stahl, Hastings

Terror at home I am deeply disturbed that some of the media are whipping up terrorism hysteria. What is terrorism? The latest tragedy in Brighton raised several on going matters. Was this man really a terrorist or was he suffering from severe mental illnesses? It was reported that he was an ice addict and had other undisclosed illnesses. Questions [remain] of how and why he was allowed to be in the community without proper supervision and follow up with obligations of his parole conditions. I suggest this is more evidence of failings of our over stretched mental health system and highlights deep flaws in monitoring people on Federal Police watch lists, given he had previously been subjected to [accusations of making] violent threats to an army base in NSW. The Lindt cafe siege is another disturbing case. Sure Man Haron Monis was Muslim, but he too in my opinion was suffering from severe mental illnesses. How he was allowed to be out on bail with all the pending charges, including assisting his partner to murder his former wife and the many sexual assaults against women in NSW? One of the most compelling disclosures of this case is that the Federal Attorney General’s department had received several violent threats to the armed service men and women serving here and in the Middle East conflicts Australia is involved in. These threats, I believe, were not acted on by the Attorney General’s department. Why? Australians should remain on a alert to a

Jazz at the Bowl SINGER Annie Smith, pictured, popular with audiences at many jazz festivals in Victoria and NSW, says performing at the City of Frankston Bowling Club is one of her favourite gigs. The vocalist, who specialises in swing and Latin rhythms and is known for her playful banter, will be back at Frankston on Sunday. Working with Smith will be Neil Taylor (piano), Ian Christensen (reeds), Geoff Woods (bass) and Allan Smith (drums). David May’s Jazz at the Bowl, 6-9pm Sunday 25 June 25. Entry $12. Details: 5945 7773. possible home terror attack, however we must keep in mind more terror is being perpetrated by family violence in Australia. Last year 71 women were killed by family violence, it is tragically looking like the numbers will be greater in 2017. Family terror is a reality, foreign terror may be a possibility. Denise Hassett, Mt Martha

Abbott block to change After the release of the Finkel report and some encouraging noises from the Labor party, it seems the biggest road block to our energy and climate troubles in Australia, is former prime minister Tony Abbott and his minions. The report’s aims are very modest but would give some real positive signals for investment in alternative energy production. This would drive our carbon emissions down and give us a chance to actually meet our Paris agreement targets. But alas, Mr Abbott and his retinue are at it again, holding Australia back for purely selfish reasons. Time to go Mr Abbott and let the grown ups deal with this. Rupert Steiner, Balnarring Beach

Reserve loss Is there anything in the world that is now believable? I cannot believe that a government which allegedly prides itself of jobs - [state] Treasurer Tim Pallas says his government is all about jobs - is sacking the employees at the Frankston Nature Conservation Reserve who make the reserve such a wonderful experience. The volunteer management team deserves kudos for creating such a welcoming environment. It is high time that we respect, support and cherish the members of our community who make a really positive difference. In my opinion this reserve and its management team really raised the reputation of Frankston. Locals volunteering all their time to give Frankston such a beautiful area to be proud of.

100 YEARS AGO THIS WEEK...

Deputation lobbies for Kananook Creek work Compiled by Cameron McCullough A DEPUTATION from the residents of Frankston waited on Mr Adamson, Minister of Public Works on Thursday morning. The deputation was introduced by Mr Downward M.L.A. and Crs Oates and Plowman, Dr Maxwell and Mr Mason spoke on the necessity of taking some steps to have Kananook. Creek cleared out, and asked if the Government would be willing to grant £2 for £1 in the event of the residents raising £100 locally towards that object. The Minister, whilst sympathising with the deputation in their efforts, said it would be no use spending money if the work had to be done over again in a year or two. Money should be spent on works that would be a permanent good. He promised that Mr Kermode would pay a visit of inspection at an early date, and if possible he would accompany him, and see if some scheme could be devised that would be of a permanent character. The deputation thanked the Minister and withdrew. *** Letter to the Editor Sir,–Can you tell me what has become of the local officer of the Law? Is he always asleep, or only drowsy? Does he not see motor cars tearing through the town at the rate of 20 or 30 miles an hour when there is a by-law restricting speed of such to 15 miles per hour? Why isn’t Rip Van Winkle up and doing? Could he not raise sufficient energy once a month, say, to prowl around at night and see all the vehicles which go by without any light at all, and are thus

a menace to the public in general and to motorists in particular. If all this is too strenuous for him, surely he could take action against the geese which daily adorn our main street. Yours etc, TANK. *** Letter to the Editor Sir,–Last week there appeared in your paper a very long letter anent the above, signed by “Local Schoolboy,” in which he starts off with a turn on the “billiard nursery for the youth of the village.” Not being a night visitor to your little town, I made inquiries, and find that the frequenters of the above nursery are usually men of mature age, and only one youth of under 21 years attends, debarred from enlisting by want of parents consent, or so I was informed. As to the duty of the men (“unable to go abroad”) uniting to develop the brains of the uprising generation, I am in full accord with. Is ‘”Local Schoolboy” under the age when men go abroad ? I quite agree that training and culture are of more account, much more, than billiards at any time, only you can’t put old heads on young shoulders, unfortunately, and make them see so. Your “Local- Schoolboy” then goes on to say that he thinks that “most of us are born with the same amount of brain power.” We may be born with the same amount by weight, but I venture to say not by quality, and your Schoolboy knows so from cold experience. We will always have drawers of water and hewers of wood, and no amount of example or precept would make them otherwise. What would be the

use of the older men trying to make a Prime Minister out of the above ? The Prime Minister will step out for himself from the beginning, and most men recognise him at the start. “Local Schoolboy” then suggests a local debating society, and asks if there is not a “public man in Frankston with enough go to call a public meeting, etc.” I think you will find many such, quite, capable men, but the men in that position are usually men who have been stepping out on their own all their lives, and when they come to read the letter from “Local Schoolboy” they ask themselves, why they should go out into the by-ways to sift the corn from the husks? Start a debating society and then practically BE the debating society. I do not know anything about the previous one, or the choral society, but think I know enough of this world’s ways to say that they both died out from the same cause - the withdrawal of the one person who was the mainspring. As to Sir John Madden (whom everyone admires) and the other gentlemen mentioned, would “ Schoolboy “ say they started in a debating society? I don’t think so, Everyone kicked out for himself, or those of them who have made any mark in the world. I just fancy I hear the Dr, after doing his long round of lectures at the University, saying to one of the bright boys of the class, “Now Johnny, will you propound to the class the difference between a boathouse on the beach having the doors on the main road and another having the doors on the sea end ?” Mr Utber could assist the propounder and no doubt a very excellent debate

would ensue, whilst some of the other gentlemen mentioned could hold the scales with equal poise to see which side won the debate. Now, Mr Editor, I take it that “Local Schoolboy” is a strong financial supporter of Frankston in its many local channels, and IS the public man who will call a public meeting and start the ball rolling. If so I’ll be as good as my word, and subscribe my HALF GUINEA. *** Frankston Court of Petty Sessions. Monday 18th June 1917. (Before Mr Cohen, P.M., and Messrs Oates, and Grant, Js.P.) DISPUTED OWNERSHIP OF GOODS, Constable Ryan made application to the Court under Section 61 of the Police Regulation Act for an order directing to whom he would deliver certain goods seized by the police, to wit, 20 lengths of spouting, 18 sheets of corrugated iron and an iron dust bin suspected of being stolen. The property was claimed by George Coates, timber merchant of Chelsea and also by George Davies, timber merchant of Frankston. Mr Backhouse, who appeared for claimant Coates stated that in April last, the property in dispute was stolen from Mr Coats’ yard at Chelsea by his son, a lad of a coat 18 years of age and that Davies had purchased the goods from the lad at about half their value. When afterwards questioned by Coates Davies had denied all knowledge of the goods and had at first made a similar denial to Const Ryan on 1st May last. On 21st May last Davies was charged by the police with being found in pos-

session of property suspected of being stolen, but the prosecuting sergeant had withdrawn the charge. George Coates gave evidence bearing out Counsel’s statement and described the steps taken by Consts Ryan and Cole to recover the stolen property. Const Ryan also gave similar evidence and detailed a conversation he had with Davies when he found the stolen property on Davies’ premises on 1st May last. George Davies gave evidence that he bought the goods from young Coates believing that he (Coates) was working for his father. He met the lad in Frankston and ordered certain timber from him. The property in question was afterwards brought down by young Coates. Witness produced a receipt showing that he had paid £9 for the goods. Mr Backhouse contended that this was not a fair price as the goods were worth more than £13 The police magistrate stated that under the Sale of Goods Act, unless goods were sold in the open market, the seller could give the buyer no better title than he himself possessed. In this case the seller having stolen the goods had no title to them. Davies the buyer had no title either. The Bench therefore ordered that the property be delivered to the owner, George Coates. The P.M. informed claimant Davies that he could sue young Coates for the money he had paid for the stolen iron. *** From the pages of the Mornington Standard, 23 June 1917

THE MEANING OF EXISTENCE... AND OTHER SHORT STORIES

Breaking Down on the Information Superhighway By Stuart McCullough I’LL admit it; I don’t really understand how the whole thing works. The Internet is, of course, an amazing tool that has revolutionised all our lives. It’s an endless source of information and entertainment. It’s also an endless source of frustration. Put simply, when it works it’s completely fantastic. But when there’s a glitch, it makes you long for the days when most things could be cured by a simple trip down to the shops. How I miss throwing something into the boot, heading down the street and dragging it out before a startled shopkeeper who would then fix whatever wasn’t working, as if by magic. I have a software program. Actually, I have several, but for the sake of simplicity, I’ll pretend there’s just the one. This particular software program allows you to record, manipulate and edit audio. It’s quite amazing. Or, at least, it used to be. I’ve used this software for years with very little trouble. But then I made a fatal and irreversible error – I clicked a button to upgrade my computer’s operating system. I may as well have set it on fire for all the good it did. Suddenly, the program that I had used and enjoyed for years stopped working. Help is hard to come by on the information superhighway. Actually, it’s not that it’s hard to come by; it’s more than it’s difficult to know whom to believe. I stumbled across a user forum; a sanctuary where likeminded individuals gather together in the search for answers. After scouring posts, I concluded that I needed to get a software upgrade. Being somewhat

old-fashioned, I did this by walking purposefully into a shop. The last time I’d done it, there were shelves of product. This time, my request resulted in a quizzical raising of a pierced eyebrow before an offer to ‘check out the back’. It was like trying to shop for chocolate eggs at midday on Easter Sunday, hours after the prices have been dropped. Eventually, I was handed a small, cardboard box and sent on my way. At this point I felt relieved. With the exception of upgrading my operating system, this was my first mistake. Just as dogs have an innate ability to sense evil, so too do computers sense relief and then set about punishing anyone foolish enough to think they know

what they’re doing. To the extent I felt even vaguely pleased with myself for finding the updated software, this sense of wellbeing quickly vanished as soon as I succeeded in opening the box. The instructions weren’t so much step-by-step guide to installation as they were a major psychedelic experience. I should assure you that the instructions were in English, but I feel an overwhelming urge to add the word ‘allegedly’. Through trial and error (although I suspect more of the latter than the former) as well as an emergency visit to my tech-savvy brother in law, we succeeded in getting the thing to work. For a time, at least. Unlike the earlier version, it seems that technol-

ogy has an expiration date as surely as the litre of fat-free milk sitting in your fridge door. After just twelve measly months, it stopped working again. This is where I really ran into trouble. There was no longer a shop to return to. I had to do everything ‘on line’. This, it seems, is a truly mysterious process. On the one hand, the internet makes the world a smaller place. But it also puts more distance between you and someone who might be able to help. Deciding that I could hardly make things worse, I emailed the service centre. This request for assistance probably wound its way half way around the world before ending up in a dark, dank basement of a student dormitory in Romania that serves a

dual purpose of IT hub and utility storage room. Having sent my email and knowing that it would be received in seconds, I stared at the screen, awaiting my reply. After seven hours, I decided to call it a night. Then, something magical happened. While I was sleeping, I received an email from the software company. It assigned me a case number and a real person named ‘Bogdan’ – which I believe is still a very popular name in some parts of Romania and translates, literally, as ‘God’s gift’ – was my assigned contact. Clearly, with Bogdan on the case, I was in good hands. Then, twenty-four hours later, they closed off my request for assistance because I hadn’t responded quickly enough. I clicked on the link that was supposed to solve all my troubles to no avail. It took me all the way through to the end before telling me there was a ‘problem’ with my transaction and recommending that I contact the support centre. I knew better than to believe them. I turned the computer off and on. I unplugged and re-plugged. I chanted, turned around three times and sprinkled holy water over my keyboard (which, as I type this, I’m now beginning to regret) before raising my fists to the heavens and unleashing the anguished cry that only those who have experienced a computer malfunction can truly understand. Now I’m back at square one, waiting for Bogdan to reply. Help me Bogdan, you’re my only hope. stuart@stuartmccullough.com

Stonecats still the team to beat PENINSULA LEAGUE

By Toe Punt JUST when everyone thought that the 2017 Peninsula Division premiership race was wide open, Frankston YCW came out on Saturday and once again highlighted that it is still the team to beat. The Stonecats haven’t been playing the greatest of football in 2017 despite winning games of footy and being equal top of the ladder. However, on Saturday, with an armoury of VFL, yet local talent, the Stonecats were able to put the new kids on the block in Seaford to the sword. Just two weeks early, the Tigers were right in the game against Pines, however, on Saturday, they were no match for the more experienced Stonecats. The general feeling amongst the YCW camp was that they would continue to make improvements throughout

the year under new coach Wayne Capp, who has brought some new styles and tactics to the game plan in 2017. On Saturday, with VFL talent including Anthony Barry, Anthony Bruhn, Matt LaFontaine, Jake Lovett, Lachy Wallace and Jake Di Pasquale, the Stonecats were at their very best. One thing that does mean a lot to Frankston YCW Football Club is their people and milestone games – they always find something extra. On Saturday, the incredibly underrated Jai Coghlan played his 200th game. It wasn’t just the ‘stars’ that shone for the Stonecats though. Josh Butland booted five majors, Matt Debenham is back to his best, Luke Paynter is a star and Macklan Raine is quickly becoming a dominant force in this competition. The Tigers just couldn’t match the visitors, despite the efforts of Aaron Walton and Dean Rayson with three majors each and the fine performances of Ben

and Dylan Howlett. The Stonecats should have won by a lot more, considering it had 38 scoring shots to 16, 17.21 (123) to 11.5 (71). MT ELIZA also put its hand up and announced that it is not a spent force in the premiership race, leading for most of the afternoon to beat PINES 11.11 (77) to 10.9 (69) at Eric Bell Reserve. The Redlegs have been whacked with the unlucky stick this season, copping bad injuries to some of its best young talent, as well as injuries to its key players. Before the match, Mt Eliza coach Troy Shannon said there were a number of reasons that his side was playing inconsistent footy. “If I could tell you what the single issue is, we’d be able to work our way out of it,” Shannon said. “The reality is that there are a combination of things not going quite right at the minute and we need to work through

and around it. “We were in a similar position last year though and came through it all right, so I’m confident we can do the same again,” Shannon said. Well, it may have started on Saturday with James Anwyl dominating, Aaron Dunne dominating with two goals and Karl Lombardozzi at his best. Aaron Edwards kicked six for the Pythons and Tim Bongetti three, however, there was very little additional contribution. In Beau Hendry’s 200th game, Pines coach Pat Swayne said after the match “the best team on the day won the game”. LANGWARRIN has lost nine straight games, belted by EDITHVALE-ASPENDALE to the tune of eight goals, 17.12 (114) to 9.11 (65). Mark Meehan booted four for the winners and Aaron Macguire and Timmy Mannix were superb.

MORNINGTON has kept its season alive, overcoming a slow start to beat CHELSEA 12.13 (85) to 11.4 (70). Emilio Bitters and Joel Miller were outstanding for the Dogs while Peter McGettigan booted three goals. Grant Trew was named Chelsea’s best while Curtis Bywater booted three goals. BONBEACH had 10 goal kickers in its massive 22.14 (146) to 5.5 (35) win over KARINGAL. Trent Dennis-Lane added five goals to his nine last week while Dylan Jones spend some more time forward and finished with three goals, along with Owen Hulett, Shane McDonald and Beau Bailey. Mark Tyrell was also back and dominated. Jake Kelly, Nathan McDonald in his first game, Grant Paxton and Michael Burke were the best of the Bulls.

Bombers need to improve for flag tilt NEPEAN LEAGUE

By Toe Punt FRANKSTON Bombers will need to improve considerably if it is to go one step better in 2017, despite getting over the line against Rosebud at Greg Beck Oval on Saturday. The Bombers were beaten all over the ground for the large majority of the afternoon, however, in a really tight contest, a couple of dubious umpiring decisions early in the last quarter swung momentum Frankston’s way and it was able to record a 10.9.69 to 7.14 (56) victory. Rosebud led at every change and by as much as nine points late in the third quarter, however, it did cost itself dearly also with inaccuracy in front of goal. For a 20-minute period in the second quarter, Rosebud completely dominated the contest, however, four behinds, two out of bounds on the full and one that trickled over the boundary line cost them a match-winning lead at the major interval. Matters weren’t helped for Rosebud when star forward Keegan Downie went down with what appeared to be a broken ankle in the first quarter.

Frankston often have a ‘targeted’ player for the opposition each week and clearly, on Saturday it was Sean Downie – he received a lot of attention, not all of it within the spirit of the game. He was wrapped in ice from head to toe after the game. Rosebud has been inaccurate in front of goal all season and it was only a matter of time before it caught up with them. On Saturday, even if they converted three of those seven second-quarter chances, it would have been enough to win them the game. It was a tight contest and a four-goal break was always going to be enough to win. Frankston just wasn’t playing good enough footy to come back from that and frustrations flared as a result. Frankston was unaccountable in defence and the forward lacked firepower. The only player that looked dangerous at any time was Sam Fox, however, he managed just one goal. In Frankston’s defence though, it did go into the game without Michael Maiorino, Scott Foster, James Degenhardt, Allan Williams and Josh Chapman. Bombers coach Beau Muston conceded on the RPP Footy Show on Satur-

day morning that his forward structure was a concern. It looked at sea again on Saturday. Their goals came from midfielders. Matt Harris booted three and was good all over the ground, and Jason Kingsbury (two), was the best player on the ground. Along with Harris and Kingsbury, Dale Sutton was the only other consistent contributor. Ben Dwyer again proved that he was the best ruckman in the competition, beating Ryan Kitchen comfortably, while Matt Baker was one of Rosebud’s best given his ruck work, help in defence and three goals when he went forward. Greg Bentley was outstanding also, however, was a catalyst in the inaccuracy in front of goal. In saying that though, he kicked one of the goals of the year with a left foot snap from 45 metres. At the end of the day, Muston would be happy to take away the four points in a game I’m sure he would concede that his team was outplayed – it’s a sign of a good side that wins games when they’re not playing well. However, if it is to match Sorrento, and we get to see it first-hand this Saturday, there’s a lot of improvement that needs to come. Alex Harnett will return,

which is important. For Rosebud, I suggest goal kicking practice, both from set shots and running at goal. It’s been threatening to hurt them and on Saturday it cost them the match. Reigning premiers HASTINGS is another team that is far from playing its best footy but still manages to win games. The Blues were lucky to escape on Saturday though, coming from behind to beat a gallant SOMERVILLE. Whilst the Blues have been a little lucky at times this season, the Eagles have been the opposite – it led all afternoon only to be pipped on the line. Paul Rogasch proved to be the difference between the teams, the MPNFL star booting five goals for the Blues. Adrian Speedy continued his dominant season for the Eagles. SORRENTO trailed DEVON MEADOWS by three goals midway through the last quarter and only led by 22 points at half-time, however, a 15 goal to four second half saw the Sharks win by almost 100 points, 23.13 (151) to 9.5 (59). Chris Dawes and Nick Corp booted five each for the Sharks and Luke Tap-

scott was best afield with four goals while a further eight players contributed on the scoreboard. Jesse Bowe was once again the Meadows’ best, dominating the ruck work. CRIB POINT overcame a sluggish start to get the job done against PEARCEDALE, winning comfortably in the end 13.12 (90) to 9.12 (66). Dean Warry booted four goals for the Pies and coach Brad Arnold was again sensational with a best on ground performance. Luke Murray and Matt Cottrell were the best of the Dales. RYE trailed TYABB early in the match but the visitors got their noses in front late in the second quarter and went on to record a 18.6 (114) to 8.8 (56) victory. The Demons are now just a game and percentage off fifth place, along with Somerville and Red Hill, while Dromana is four points clear in fifth after playing an extra game. Tim Churchin and Adam Kirkwood each booted three for the Demons while Oscar Whitty and Ben Trivett were again outstanding. Darcy Underwood was very good for the Yabbies and Jake Anderson was amongst the best in his 100th game.

By Toe Punt ONE of the most respected people in local football, MPNFL Life Member Mark Hustwaite has pleaded with AFL South East to work together with clubs and not to make decisions for the benefit of the minority. Hustwaite, who is willing to assist the league to help improve clubs, has been involved in the MPNFL for more than 30 years, is a life member at Rosebud and Pines football clubs, is a premiership player and coach, interleague coach and currently the football manager at Rosebud. There’s not much ‘Hussy’ hasn’t achieved in our game. Without question, Hustwaite is well qualified to comment on the health of the competition and the proposed AFL South East changes. In the past week, Hustwaite has received unexpected calls from AFL South East general manager John Anderson and football manager Cam Roberts to

discuss his club’s stance on the proposal. Hustwaite made it clear to both of them that his club and surrounding clubs were united in their thoughts on the proposal. Hustwaite, who agreed that it looked as though AFL South East was trying to ‘divide and conquer’, said it appeared that AFL South East has a template on how our local competition should be structured. “However, they are not taking into account the unique features of our competition and its geography,” Hustwaite said. “It is well known that divisional football and promotion/relegation work in other regions and metro competitions. This template does not suit our region. Nepean Division has been in a very healthy state since becoming more geographical in 2006,” Hustwaite said. “In this region over the past 30 years, several alterations have been made to

the competition that have not served the clubs well. Generally, clubs who have been ‘promoted’ have struggled in the higher division – it has hurt the club by breaking up local rivalries, reducing their ability to raise funds through lower gate takings/canteen and other sales. The pressure to perform also demands that the clubs spend more to remain competitive, however, they are restricted in their ability to raise as much. Hustwaite said if Rosebud was placed in ‘Division One’ and lost rivalries against Rye, Dromana and Red Hill, it could cost the club as much as $40,000 in revenue each year. “AFL South East is attempting to legislate for the small number of clubs who are struggling. The clubs in our region who are ‘struggling’ are in this position for one or a combination of reasons. “We need to address club issues in changing demographics, financial position, links between junior and senior

clubs and the retention of youth/teenage footballers. Junior boys’ football in this area (in the smaller townships) has been in a sad decline for quite some time. Right now, I would say it’s almost at its weakest in 10 years.” One questions how that would compete against Cranbourne, Narre Warren, Berwick and Beaconsfield. Hustwaite said altering the structure of football in this region may only create a ‘quick fix’. “Rather than have the options presented to us as the ‘only’ choices, we need to use the AFL resources and professionals within our region to work with the clubs who are struggling and address their individual needs,” Hustwaite said. “If we can achieve the aim of improving the ‘health’ of every club that would like assistance, this would make for a sustainable local football environment. There may be some clubs who need to investigate alterations to the competition

they are in, but wholesale change is not required. “What we need right now is to get the AFL South East right behind us and work together for the best results in local football,” Hustwaite said. Watching it all unfold with a keen eye is Southern Football Netball League (SFNL), who may also be impacted with the AFL South East recommendations, given region divisional football may also impact their member clubs including Cerberus, South Mornington, Skye, Lyndhurst, Carrum and Chelsea Heights. However, SFNL General Manager David Canizzio would not be drawn into making comment. “I respect the process that AFL SE is going through and I’m sure there will come a time when it will be appropriate to make comment,” Canizzio said.

Langy licks its wounds as Somerville soars SOCCER

By Craig MacKenzie CELLAR dweller Mooroolbark ended Langwarrin’s unbeaten run last weekend while Somerville Eagles recorded the second win of their inaugural State League season. While the Barkers were surprising the football world with a 3-2 win against the league leader in State 1 South-East, Somerville Eagles were soaring to a 3-0 win over Old Mentonians in their State 5 South encounter at Mentone Grammar. A Ciaran McConville corner in the 31st minute gave the Eagles the lead and a McConville cross in the 56th minute found Liam Morgan sliding in to volley home from close range. Pat Acha cut in from the left and completed the rout in the 73rd minute. Bailey Henderson came off the Eagles’ bench and won a penalty following a superb through ball by Alex Colville but when Henderson blew the conversion he was subbed. “We have definitely turned the corner and we are really starting to gel as a group,” said delighted Eagles president Felix Arena. It was a different scene at Lawton Park as four goals in the final eight minutes found Langy players trudging towards the dressing room with glum faces after unexpectedly losing their unbeaten record. Aaran Currie and Kieron Kenny went closest for Langy in the first half but a superb turn by Mooroolbark’s Ross Clark in the 78th minute and a firm low shot inside the far post broke the deadlock. An excellent interpassing move in the 85th minute involving Liam Baxter, sub Caleb Nicholes and Connor Belger ended with Belger drilling a low right-foot strike past Barkers keeper Rob Havercroft to make it 1-1. Within a minute Mat Luak had tucked away the rebound following a blocked Nicholes shot and Langy had an unlikely lead. A couple of minutes later and it was 2-2 after Mooroolbark striker Sam Klepac had been bodychecked and converted the resultant penalty with ease. Three minutes into injury time a draw seemed certain until a George Whiteoak howler gifted possession to Klepac and he made no mistake from close range for a dramatic decider. Langy’s State 1 rival Mornington fared no better slumping to its fifth league defeat at home this season. Its defensive woes continued when it went down 3-2 to Casey Comets on Saturday. Aaron Root partnered Steve Elliott in central defence for the home team

Somerville success: Eagles defender Kevin McCormick. Picture: Darryl Kennedy

and recent signing Sam Orritt debuted in a wide left role. But it was another new signing, Comets’ capture Delfin Mosebe from Springvale White Eagles, who caught the eye. The winger from Equatorial Guinea was making his first start for his new club and had a hand in two of Comets’ goals. Mornington started on the front foot and star striker Ryan Paczkowski forced Comets keeper Faraz Zenoozi into a save low down at his near post after just three minutes. One minute later Mornington was in front after Chris Reid sent Paczkowski clear and he pinpointed his left foot strike inside the far post. Simon Mur should have extended Mornington’s lead when he broke through in the 26th minute but shot straight at Zenoozi and Comets levelled in the 27th minute after Mosebe crossed from the left and a defensive mix-up between Mornington keeper Kris McEvoy and left back Jack Truelove allowed Comets midfielder Ray Markley to nip in and poke the ball home from close range. Allando Matheson had the chance to capitalise on more poor defending in the 33rd minute but took too long to shoot and the sides went in level pegging at the break. Mornington went back in front in the 60th minute via an Elliott Capel own

goal after the Comets defender and Mur both attacked an inviting Paczkowski cross swung in from the right. Another own goal, this time from Mornington’s Elliott in the 73rd minute, made it 2-2 after Markley’s shot was blocked and Elliott was trying to cut out a shot on the rebound from substitute Andy Stubley but only succeeded in deflecting the ball past McEvoy. A slick move and fine finish by Matheson sealed Mornington’s fate in the 78th minute. Mosebe and Jesse Martindale combined wide on the left before the latter cut the ball back to Matheson who shielded well then turned and smacked a firm low strike inside the far post. Mur went close in the 80th minute and in the 90th minute Matheson chipped the stranded McEvoy but the ball struck the bar and was cleared. Comets are playing a friendly against Doveton at Comets Stadium on Tuesday at 7.30pm and the match will feature a Chilean striker that the club has signed pending the processing of his international clearance. Peninsula Strikers drew 1-1 away to State 2 South-East leader Eltham on Saturday and earned praise from gaffer Craig Lewis. “It was a strong performance and we were unfortunate not to take all three points having hit the post and having one cleared off the line,” said Lewis.

Southern Peninsula News 20 June 2017

“Young Aiden McKenna is just 16 and he had an excellent game at left back.” Strikers were without defensive linchpin Chris McKenna, who was working in Sydney, and Tom Hawkins who was suspended after accumulating five yellow cards. And gun striker Aziz Bayeh was forced off with a hamstring injury after 22 minutes and was replaced by Trevor Johnston. An own goal in the 59th minute gave Strikers the lead but Eltham substitute Peter Koskos equalised in the 81st minute. Frankston Pines lost big Ioasa Saemo to a straight red card in the 22nd minute of its State 2 South-East home game against Mazenod on Saturday but the 10 men stood tall to record a stirring 1-0 victory. The pivotal moment came in the 57th minute when Francois Armansin broke down the left then cut inside and squared the ball to Jack Wrobel whose lay-off was slotted home by Matt Davis. “It was a huge team performance and to hold our shape, stay organised and persevere was outstanding. No wonder the boys were spent at the end of the match,” said Pines head coach Paul Williams. A huge plus for Pines was the return of CJ Hodgson from Comets and don’t be surprised if there is more good news on the playing front this week. Seaford United might be down but it’s not yet out judging by Saturday’s crucial 1-0 home win over fellow struggler Doncaster Rovers. Harry McCartney reports that Seaford welcomed the return of former captain Marcus Brownlie to shore up the defence. Brownlie and former Berwick City player James Ashby were among a number of changes made by senior coach Paulo Pinheiro in an attempt to drag his side off the bottom of the State 2 South-East ladder. Ace Seaford striker Dylan Waugh settled the issue just before half-time when he ran onto a long punt downfield from Seaford keeper Harrison Burgess and tapped the bouncing ball over the head of Rovers custodian Daniel Ciric into the unguarded goal. Burgess turned in a man-of-thematch performance making a series of top-quality saves. Doncaster came close in the 76th minute but Chris Pascal-Therios watched in dismay as his shot was cleared off the line by Seaford defender Admir Music. Skye United maintained its promotion push in State 3 South-East with a thumping 7-0 away win over strug-

gling Sandringham on Saturday. Stand in skipper Marcus Collier, deputising for suspended Mark O’Connor, kicked off proceedings in the first minute lashing home a loose ball in the box to put the visitors ahead. From there it was all one-way traffic, as Daniel Attard tapped in a Michael Putson cut back in the 29th minute and Wumjock Jock got on the end of a Jason Nowakowski cross with the last kick of the half to make it 3-0. Attard continued Skye’s dominance in the second half and his finish from a one-on-one triggered another barrage of goals. A red card for a handball on the line to Sandringham’s Ben Harris in the 55th minute worsened matters for the host but Nowakowski put the resulting spot kick wide. But Nowakowski made amends in the 68th minute when his cross found Attard whose diving header completed his hat trick. Jock notched his own hat trick in the 75th and 81st minutes and the hiding was complete. Baxter won bragging rights for 2017 when it defeated bitter rival Rosebud Heart 1-0 on Saturday in their State 4 South derby battle at Truemans Road. To rub salt into Heart’s wounds the winner came from the man Heart fans love to hate, controversial Scottish striker Mark Pagliarulo. Former Heart midfielder Alan Lipsett forced a superb save from Heart keeper Sean Skelly in the 55th minute. Lipsett gathered the rebound then cut the ball back to Pagliarulo who drilled it home with his left foot from close range. Baxter custodian Francis Beck won his personal battle with Heart hitman Dave Greening which had a major bearing on the outcome. Beck was well supported by excellent defensive displays by Owen Kilner, Frank Ntim and Heath Goss. This weekend’s games: SATURDAY 3pm: Morwell Pegasus v Langwarrin (Ronald Reserve), St Kilda v Mornington (Elwood Park), Seaford Utd v Heatherton Utd (North Seaford Reserve), Eltham Redbacks v Frankston Pines (Eltham North Reserve), Berwick City v Peninsula Strikers (Jack Thomas Reserve), Skye Utd v Dingley Stars (Skye Recreation Reserve), Rosebud Heart v Endeavour Utd (Truemans Road Recreation Reserve), Noble Park v Baxter (Norman Luth Reserve), Somerville Eagles v Drouin Dragons (Barber Reserve).


SOUTHERN PENINSULA scoreboard

Begg scores first city winner from new set-up By Ben Triandafillou MORNINGTON trainer, Grahame Begg, scored his first metropolitan winner since re-launching his training career on the peninsula last year. Begg saddled up the grey mare Phoenix Park for her seventh start with the trainer in the $40,000 The Cove Hotel Handicap (1400m) at Sandown on Wednesday 14 June. Phoenix Park ($31) was sent out as an outsider but travelled into the race from sitting three wide to score by a short neck from Diapason ($4), with the Peter Morgan-trained Whirlpool ($9) finishing a further length and a half away in third. With seven unplaced starts in New South Wales, Begg has turned Phoe-

nix Park’s form around to now having four wins from her past seven starts. “We were absolutely delighted with the win,” Begg said. “Hopefully its onwards and upwards from here.” The victory gave jockey, Jamie Mott, his 100th win for the season and bought up Begg’s 14th winner since setting up his training operations at Pinecliff, Mt Eliza. The win is likely to be Phoenix Park’s last start for the trainer as it heads to the Inglis Great Southern sale next week. “Unfortunately, she is heading to the sales but it was great to get a city win with her,” Begg said.

Unbeaten women’s teams can’t be separated By Ben Triandafillou THE Mornington Football Club’s senior women’s side have kept their unbeaten status with a draw against Endeavour Hills on Saturday. Both teams came into the match with a perfect record and were looking to take the top spot in the Division

Two South Eastern Women’s Football League. Endeavour Hills came out firing, having the first five scoring chances of the match and finished the first quarter to lead by two goals. Mornington started to fight back in the second quarter but couldn’t make much ground. However, the third quarter was dominated by Mornington with most of the ball in their forward half and ended the quarter to lead by eight points. It came down to the final minute in the fourth quarter where Mornington led by seven points. Endeavour Hills were able to kick

a behind before booting a goal in the dying seconds to tie up the game, bringing the final score to 5.8.38. Mornington football club coach, Gary Sanford says the match fittingly ended with a draw with nothing to separate the sides. “It was a bit disappointing to get a draw but it was good to see the two top teams battle it out,” Sanford said. “It was perfect conditions for footy with the teams still unable to be seperated.” Sanford says the team played well with special mentions to Imani Francis and Rebecca Waymouth who led the charge from the centre against Endeavour Hills.

Special Toyota 86 stops you in your tracks TOYOTA has expanded the pure driving pleasure of its popular 86 coupe with a limited-edition model that adds an impressive dynamic edge and an eye-catching new paint colour. Just 60 of these exclusive cars are available in Australia, enhancing the appeal of the 86 to driving enthusiasts by fitting larger Brembo® performance brakes for supreme stopping power and specially tuned Sachs® performance dampers for enhanced stability. The impressive dynamic enhancements are complemented by the high visual impact of unmissable Solar Orange paint - a blazing colour that achieves extra depth of tone. The dramatic effect is heightened by a metallic black finish applied to the rear spoiler and door-mirror housings, while the exclusive exterior look is completed with a set of 10-spoke 17-inch anthracite-coloured alloy wheels. In the cabin, the leather-accented front sports seats with perforated Alcantara® trim feature contrast orange stitching, as do the steering wheel, gear shift, park brake and door trim. The suede-like Grandlux® dashboard features an 86 logo embossed with orange stitchwork. Based on the top-grade GTS manual variant, the 86 limited-edition performance package is priced at $41,490 - an increase of $4,550 with the premium paint. Toyota Australia’s executive director sales and marketing Tony Cramb

said the performance package is ideally suited to the car’s balanced chassis, low centre of gravity and its front-engine/rear-wheel-drive configuration. “Whether driven on the open road or on the track, the combination of

beefier brakes and uprated suspension involving two renowned performance brands is designed to further distinguish Toyota’s lightweight coupe as an authentic driver’s car,” Mr Cramb said. The 86’s ventilated disk brakes are

upgraded to ensure even better stopping power and endurance. Substantially beefier rotors are 326mm x 30mm with four-piston calipers at the front (GTS: 294mm x 24mm) and are fitted with larger 75cm2 (54cm2) pads. The rear ben-

efits from 316mm x 20mm rotors with two-piston calipers (GTS: 290mm x 18mm) with 32 cm2 (30 cm2) pads. Fitment of Sachs dampers adds to the lightweight sports car’s renowned responsiveness and stability. The limited-edition 86 is powered by a 2.0-litre aluminium horizontally opposed direct-injection four-cylinder engine. Mated to a six-speed manual gearbox, its maximum out is 152kW at 7,000rpm with 212Nm of torque from 6400 to 6800rpm. Other features include keyless entry and ignition, dual-zone climate control, a 4.2-inch multi-information display, rear spoiler, privacy glass, satellite navigation1 and an upgraded multimedia system with a 6.1-inch display screen and Toyota Link2 connected mobility. The 86 captures the spirit of Toyota’s finest sports models of the past, such as the 2000GT of the mid1960s and the classic AE86 Corolla from the 1980s, while delivering the quality and precision expected by today’s customers. Since arriving in Australia in 2012, the 86 has become a cult car. A regular favourite for drifting, it has also proven itself a hard-nosed and successful circuit competitor, including in the closely fought Toyota 86 Racing Series. Almost 19,000 of the popular coupes have been sold here with two-thirds of buyers opting for the high-grade GTS variants.

Sorrento Portsea Chamber of Commerce – supporting the community THE Skating at Sorrento ice rink is the brainchild of the Sorrento Portsea Chamber of Commerce whom works to support the local business community, particularly through the winter months. Chambers of Commerce are made up of a group of volunteer business people whom dedicate time and energy towards initiatives

that support the township in which they work and live, not necessarily always for the benefit of themselves personally. When the Chambers’ Business Development Manager Natalie Garner brought the idea to the Committee of having an ice rink in Sorrento, there was a unanimous “yes” to making this happen.

The Chamber knew that beyond supporting the business community, the Mornington Peninsula community would enjoy having a world class winter attraction right on our shores rather than having to travel to Melbourne or interstate to experience such an amazing, fun, healthy winter activity. The ice rink, set on Sorrento

foreshore, also allows us to celebrate the natural beauty that we are all lucky enough to have right on our doorstep, whilst also hopefully enjoying some retail, food or relaxation therapy in Sorrento village whilst you are at it! The Sorrento Portsea Chamber of Commerce, in conjunction with local company Craft Markets

Australia has also recently launched the “Sorrento Makers Market” in recognising that “everyone loves a market!”. The next market will be held on 20 August in Sorrento’s main shopping district, again providing some great winter activities for people to “stay local and buy local”.
