Free fees catch of the day THE weather wasn’t ideal for a day out on the bay, but that didn’t stop fishing and boating minister Jaala Pulford, Nepean MP Chris Brayne and a host of other interested parties from lining up at the Rye boat ramp on Friday. The politicians were there to announce in person that parking and launching fees at Mornington Peninsula Shire boat ramps had been scrapped. Fees at Schnapper Point and Fishermans Beach, at Mornington, and at Rye, Safety Beach, Sorrento and Hastings were the first to go, with Tootgarook boat ramp to be free from 1 September and the Anthony’s Nose ramp at Dromana free by the time the ramp reopens in summer. “The costs of parking and launch fees can make a day on the bay more expensive than it should be,” Ms Pulford said. “That’s why the state government has removed launching and parking fees at all public boat ramps.” The abolition of fees at Rye boat ramp was the first step in delivering on an election commitment which they said would save Mornington Peninsula boaters up to $135 a year. The government also plans to upgrade Hastings boat ramp and dredge sand around the Tootgarook ramp before spring.

Late bid to save air show NEGOTIATIONS are underway to are being held to try and avert the cancellation of next year’s scheduled Tyabb air show. Mornington Peninsula Shire mayor Cr David Gill said Peninsula Aero Club was being asked to sign a permit that would allow the air show to go ahead. The permit was personally delivered to aero club president on Friday by shire CEO John Baker. Peninsula Aero Club president Jack Vevers, who last week announced cancellation of the air show, said the club had been “talking all weekend, work-

ing on it”. “Everything has been cancelled – motels, vendors and ambos.” He said the permit delivered last week was “what we previously found unacceptable”. “I never wanted it [the air show] not to happen and we are all anxious to get it sorted,” Mr Vevers said. “I am keeping positive but realistic. All the power sits with the council. “It is still possible that the show could happen. If we can get a permit with conditions that are practical and usable, we will go ahead.” Cr Gill said there were “no conten-

do want is a master plan for the airfield that can be enforced.” The shire last month said the aero club should conform to planning rules and apply for a permit, a move Mr Vevers branded as “blackmail” (“Shire to back air show if permit sought” The News 3/7/19). Mr Vevers wanted the shire to accept a secondary consent application as in the past: “We normally just write to the council and fill in a form which gives us a period to vary our permit so we can run the air show - say, seven days. It’s never been an issue before.” Keith Platt and Stephen Taylor

At that stage Cr Gill said the club’s cancelling of the air show was “game playing and childish”. “We offered to fast track a permit and give them a draft permit, but they’ve led us down the garden path so they can blame council,” he said. “Every other major event on the peninsula has to apply for a permit. “The [air show] is an iconic event and we don’t want to lose it.

However, Cr Gill confirmed the shire is still insisting that the airfield should operate under a master plan. He understood that some businesses operating at the airfield without a permit had approached the shire to obtain the necessary approvals.

Shire plans action to combat ‘emergency’ MORNINGTON Peninsula Shire’s youngest councillor, Sam Hearn has stood in houses flooded by storms that come now annually instead of once in 100 years. Cr Hearn last week gave a graphic account of the effects of climate change already being felt on the Mornington Peninsula when urging his colleagues to declare that the municipality is in the grip of a “climate emergency”. He says residents are removing tonnes of plastic waste from some beaches while other beaches are being lost to rising seawaters. “We are studying the effects of climate change inundation at Balnarring Beach, I’ve stood in homes with residents and shire engineers that are

being regularly inundated … we pay for and maintain the vast majority of the drains that cope with storm surges, our community services teams care for the elderly in their homes as find them in distress during the growing heat waves …” He said the latest Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) report “states that as a global community, we could have just 12 years left to implement meaningful actions to limit a climate change catastrophe”. “It’s time to stop thinking about climate change and start taking urgent, significant action,” Cr Hearn said. Council’s unanimous decision to declare a climate emergency was applauded by a packed public gallery at council’s Tuesday 13 August meeting.

While a climate emergency is a call for immediate and urgent action to reverse global warming, it will have little effect globally without the backing and actions of state and federal governments (“Peninsula declares ‘climate emergency’” The News 13/8/19). However, the move does see the shire join 840 local governments across 18 countries in recognising the damage climate change is causing to economies and environments. The shire has called on the state and federal governments to also declare a climate emergency backed by legislated programs. As a result of the climate emergency decision, the shire will develop an action plan setting targets, outcomes, estimated budgets and timeframes.

Cr Simon Brooks said the IPCC showed “we have two years to get our policies and strategies in place - we have a further 10 years to action these in full”. The mayor David Gill said council was calling on the nation to “join the fight for our planet”. “We’ll do everything we can to address and mitigate climate change at a local level but it’s going to take action from the state and federal government to make a real difference,” he said. He said political preferences should be set aside “for the sake of our environment and the future of our next generation”. Cr Hugh Fraser, who raised a notice of motion, said the peninsula is subject to higher risk of extreme storm

events, sea level rise and coastal erosion as a result of climate change. “This climate change emergency resolution will give fresh momentum to council’s resolved commitment to achieve carbon neutrality by 2021.” In 2015 the CSIRO predicted climate impacts for the greater Melbourne region of increased temperatures; more frequent and intense downpours; rising sea levels; warmer and more acidic seas; more hot days and warm spells; less rainfall in winter and spring; harsher fire weather and longer fire seasons and increased frequency.

No help for threatened beach boxes Keith Platt keith@mpnews.com.au THERE will be no further steps taken to restore sand to the beach or protect beach boxes at Mt Martha North. A report released on Friday by the Department of Environment, Land, Water and Planning (DELWP) found that the most feasible options at the beach are to “monitor” and, if necessary, reinforce a rock wall protecting the bottom of the cliff and “allow natural processes to take place without further intervention”. “This option aligns with the Victorian Coastal Strategy’s directive to allow natural coastal processes as the preferred approach to coastal erosion management,” the report states. It also recommends Mount Martha North “should be considered a summer beach only”. The report rules out building a rock groyne or offshore reef and says any action taken to restore sand at Mt Martha north would just cause problems elsewhere. “Natural processes” over the past decade have led to sand being scoured from the beach each winter and only partially replaced in summer. During winter storms some beach boxes have collapsed while others have been left sagging on broken stumps. About five have been removed. The loss of sand from the northern section of Mt Martha’s beachfront has seen a build-up in the south where beach box prices are soaring. One real estate agent describes beach boxes as

“the ultimate beach accessory”. The report by Water Technology on the 600 metres of beach north from the Balcombe Creek estuary coincided last week with further collapses of soil and rock from cliffs above the beach boxes. Cracks have also appeared in the bitumen covering the Esplanade between Coolangatta Road and Alice Street. Bores have been drilled to monitor movement in the cliffs above the beach (“Looking into climate change and the bay’s future” The News 4/3/19). The report’s findings will be a blow to dozens of beach box owners who have wanted the state government to use taxpayers’ money to replace sand at the beach and protect it from future losses. An assessment of four engineering options suggested by Water Technology in a 2017 report has shown that none of them would restore sand in either the short or long term along the whole beach or prevent further beach erosion (“Beach repairs could cost $4m” The News 30/10/17). It took three years for the sea to wash away 12,500 cubic metres of sand deposited at Mt Martha beach north in 2010. To ensure public safety over the next 12 months the DELWP will check the state of the cliffs and rock wall every three months. Engineers and staff from the DELWP will be available to discuss and explain the study results and recommendations 1-3pm Saturday 24 August, at Mt Martha Lifesaving Club.

A YELLOW cylinder shows where a probe has been placed to monitor the seaward movement of cliffs above beach boxes at Mt Martha Beach North, top. Further collapse of the rapidly eroding cliffs threatens the stability of the Esplanade, right, and a plea for a tidier beach at Mt Martha South, above. Pictures: Keith Platt

THE men behind sculptures of sporting icons John Coleman (Hastings), Lionel Rose (Warragul) and John Famechon (Frankston) are planning a similar honour for Mornington Peninsula athlete Debbie Flintoff-King. Red Hill resident Robert McCarthy announced the Debbie Flintoff-King statue project at a function at the Mornington Civic Reserve last week. Sculptor Stephen Glassborow – who designed and crafted the Coleman statue outside the library in High Street – took some final details and measurements of Ms Flintoff-King, 59, and proffered a sketch of the proposed artwork he and the multi-medal-winning athlete had previously discussed. “I have worked with Stephen and a variety of community groups, individuals, businesses, local government and supporters in the past to raise funds for the other statues as gifts to the community,” Mr McCarthy said. “This statue will celebrate Debbie’s remarkable sporting career, her contribution as an outstanding member of the community, and as a symbol of encouragement and inspiration to others, particularly girls and young women.” Mr McCarthy said few women had been honoured in this way. He is now looking to raise money from the community for the statue to be sculpted installed “somewhere on the peninsula”. Flintoff-King, who began as a junior at Frankston, achieved world prominence as a 400-metre runner and hurdler in a career spanning 1979-1991. She won gold at the 1988 Seoul Olympics and silver at the 1987 Rome world championships. She won Commonwealth Games’ gold at Brisbane in 1982 and Edinburgh (1986), and silver at Brisbane (1982), Edinburgh (1986), and Auckland (1990), as well as a string of state and national athletics titles.

Word skills become a class talking point Stephen Taylor steve@mpnews.com.au

THE ability to communicate with others is a simple process for most people. We speak, others listen and, hopefully, understand what we are trying to say. But everyday words are mysterious unknowns for some Mornington Peninsula youngsters, especially those from low socio-economic backgrounds who are unable to enunciate, or even create basic sentences. They are unable to use words as building blocks to expand their vocabularies and tend to shy away from communicating because it exposes their poor literacy skills. Later in life they tend to be forced to the back of the queue when it comes to higher learning and establishing fulfilling lives. Research has found that only 38 per cent of those with a communication disability have jobs compared to 80 per cent who can speak fluently. They are less likely to have another qualification (42 per cent), than those without a communication disability (61 per cent). Speech pathologists are highlighting the theme: Communicating with Confidence, during Speech Pathology Week: 25-31 August, at several peninsula schools. The charitable Mornington Peninsula Foundation has partnered with Peninsula Speech Plus to contribute more than $1 million over three years towards increasing the long-term

plausible sentences. “Some just babble on because words mean nothing to them. Some don’t speak or listen. They just sit staring at their screens,” Ms Exton said. “Others become frustrated at their inability to get their message across;

Mornington Park and Tyabb Railway primary schools and their feeder kindergartens identified low oral language skills as the key issue for poor engagement and success in learning. Peninsula Speech Plus’s Megan Ingram said experts tested 300 children at 10 intervention sites and three comparison sites in term 1 this year and found that 92 per cent needed some form of speech pathology assistance. As a result, Peninsula Speech Plus trained classroom aides and kinder staff overseeing more than 250 children set about improving their understanding of words and pronunciation. “We are seeing amazing outcomes already with children communicating with confidence, increasing their vocabulary, being more connected with school and increasing their social interaction skills as well,” Ms Ingram said. Improved speech, understanding of words and when and where to use them, are making for happier, more constructive lessons. “Kids are more connected, more engaged and are achieving,” Ms Ingram said. “You can feel it in the classrooms.”

Sports upgrades a winner ROSEBUD football, cricket and netball clubs will benefit from improved facilities at Olympic Park Reserve, Rosebud. A $3.1 million upgrade will allow the pavilion to cater for the future needs of the popular clubs. Six multipurpose change rooms have been added, as well as unisex toilets and showers, store rooms, first-aid room, accessible toilets and external public toilets. The social room office and toilets have been

refurbished and a scoring box added, 20 parking spaces sealed and gardens landscaped. New pedestrian paths have been laid and utility services upgraded. The building features a sustainable design and durable materials as well as low energy lighting. Windows are orientated for natural lighting and ventilation instead of using mechanical heating and cooling.

Signing for safety

Mornington to Somerville, is unsuitable for industrial traffic and, although nothing may happen for several years, Mr Bakewell said a “lack of consultation and clarity with residents” was worrying. The shire’s planning and building director David Bergin told the council the shire did “not have a formal position on the appropriateness or otherwise” of the recently released strategy. He said the Port of Hastings Development Authority was established under the Transport Integration Act 2010 and was responsible for preparing strategies to guide its operations and run the port economically. Upgrading Bungower Road was seen as a “medium-to-long-term proposal for consideration and any upgrade will need to be undertaken following a full analysis with all stakeholders”.

DROMANA residents want safety to be improved at an intersection with a five-year history of serious injury crashes, including the death of a cyclist. A petition containing 60 signatures seeking improvements to the Nepean Highway and Ponderosa Place intersection was presented to Mornington Peninsula Shire Council last week. Infrastructure strategy and climate change manager Davey Smith said the shire has been pushing the state government for upgrades, including traffic lights with pedestrian facilities, at the site. “This intersection has a history of serious injury crashes, including a cyclist fatality, in the past five years,” he said. “Any upgrades at this location must be undertaken by Department of Transport as they are responsible for this intersection.” A 49-signature petition calling for better pedestrian access on Nepean Highway between Ponderosa Place and the Aldi supermarket, Dromana, was also received. The shire’s traffic and transport team leader Tom Haines-Sutherland said he also had been pressing the state government to improve safety there. He said shire officers would contact the petitioners to help push their case. Another petition to council with 24 signatures requested improvements to the exit at the intersection of Nepean Highway and Mariner Place, Safety Beach.

Vets wary of shire’s ‘strays’ contract By Danielle Kutchel VETS are upset by a push by Mornington Peninsula Shire to sign them up to an agreement setting out what they can do with stray animals. The non-mandatory 84Y agreement – included in the Domestic Animals Act of Victoria – requires that all cats and dogs found or seized be delivered to an authorised council officer, or to a council-approved organisation, including vets. If a vet practice has an 84Y agreement with a council it can retain, dispose of, or return cats or dogs to their owners. Vets without an agreement must hand strays over to the shire. They can be fined if caught checking an animal’s microchip or contacting its owners. The Save Mornington Pound Pets group says animals taken to the pound are at risk of illness or being euthanised. The RSPCA, the Australian Veterinary Association Victoria and the Municipal Association of Victoria, say the 84Y agreements between vets and councils improve animal welfare outcomes and reduce costs for councils. But some vets opposed to the plan say the paperwork involved, and lack of payment for their time and effort, makes the process unworkable. A spokesperson for Animal Welfare Victoria said 84Y agreements varied between councils. Vets around the peninsula are concerned that the shire has ignored

A COMMUNITY group fears more lost pets and stray animals will end up in the pound because vets are not allowed to return them directly to their owners unless they have an agreement with Mornington Peninsula Shire.

their views, making them the “fall guys” and being blamed by distressed owners of lost pets. Victoria Stefani, owner and manager of Mornington Veterinary Clinic, said the council had not provided enough information about the agreement. “I am still confused as to what we are allowed or not allowed to do in terms of reuniting stray pets with their owners.” Ms Stefani said she had been unable to arrange a meeting with the head of the shire’s animal department. “There is a severe lack of communi-

cation between pet industry professionals and the shire,” she said. Dr Kelly Halls, of Bentons Road Veterinary Clinic, Mt Martha, said her clinic had decided against entering an 84Y agreement. “I declined to sign this contract on the basis that it would involve a lot of processing of paperwork for our staff in remaining compliant with council regulations,” she said. “Council would not remunerate us for this paperwork. We would be allowed to charge the owner of the dog for this professional time, but we

do not feel this would be seen in good light by the community, particularly as the owner of the lost dog would still be served with a dog-at-large fine by the council.” She felt pet owners would be disappointed in them for effectively “dobbing them in” to the council. By refusing to sign up for the 84Y agreement, the Bentons Road clinic is prohibited from scanning animals for microchips. This means the two to three strays handed in each fortnight will now have to be sent directly to the council pound rather than being returned to their owners. “I understand [the shire wants] to maintain records of animal management, but there are many instances of dogs simply escaping properties when frightened by sudden noises, or gates being accidentally left open,” Dr Halls said. “I believe that returning the pet [home] quickly would be the best outcome in many cases, but the council regulations are inflexible.” Westernport Vet Hastings co-owner Matthew Ray said his practice had been told it could no longer check pets for microchips or return pets to their owners because it did not have an 84Y agreement with the council. Mr Ray said he could be fined $792 if he returned a lost dog or cat to its owner. The shire’s environment protection manager John Rankine said although 84Y agreements had been around for some years, the council had in December 2018 decided to discuss them with vets.

The shire disputes claims it charges owners release fees if their pet is returned to them by a vet with at 84Y agreement. However, several practices confirmed that dogs returned home by vets with 84Y agreements had received $242 fines from the council. Mr Ray said even when vets had 84Y agreements with the shire about half of the strays coming to them ended up at the pound, causing “great distress to both the animals and their owners”. Rosy Fischer of Save Mornington Pound Pets said the push towards 84Y agreements was the latest in a string of harsher enforcements by the council. “I feel that in the past year things have become worse for pets in the council. The council is far tougher in issuing fines with a major focus on revenue raising at the expense of pets.” The Australian Veterinary Association said it had lobbied the government before the November state election to amend section 84D of the Domestic Animals Act to allow vets to reunite microchipped animals with their owners. “The major parties agreed to amend this legislation and, a recent meeting between AVA and Agriculture Minister Jaclyn Symes, advised that this would happen in early 2020,” the statement said. Entering an 84Y agreement is not mandatory under state legislation, and Animal Welfare Victoria does not undertake compliance activities in relation to the agreements.

With Stephen Taylor

Speeding towards booze bus

Senior Constable Greg Wolfe said other incidents included a Wantirna man, 39, whose licence had been suspended who was “so fixated on getting his hit of drugs he didn’t notice the bag of ice sitting on his lap when police spoke to him through his driver’s window”. Also, a 26-year-old Altona Meadows man who was “so high he was still smoking his bong when police walked up to request he do a drug test”. Senior Constable Wolfe said 18 drug drivers and one drink-driver were processed over seven nights. “If you are out driving in the wee small hours, please be aware these people are out there,” he said.

Mt Martha fatality

The driver is facing a $1280 vehicle impound release fee and losing his licence for a minimum of 12 months when he goes to court. His car was impounded for a month. A NISSAN Skyline travelling south on Moorooduc Highway through the Frankston-Flinders Road roundabout allegedly accelerated to 146kph in an 80kph zone, 11pm, Wednesday 14 August. Somerville Highway Patrol members intercepted the car just before a booze bus which was set up around the bend near Sages Road. The Dandenong driver, 23, gave no reason for speeding, although police thought it “may have been a case of him trying to impress his girlfriend who was with him in the car”, Senior Constable Greg Wolfe said. “We assume she wouldn’t have been impressed at having to arrange alternative transport home. But it’s much better to arrive home late than not at all due to a serious injury or a fatal collision.”

Portsea drink driver A DRINK-driver who crashed his Holden Commodore into a pole in Portsea last week returned a breath test of 0.250 per cent. Rosebud police were called to Defence Road after the incident, 4.20pm, Monday 12 August. A 48-year-old man is expected to be charged on summons with drink-driving offences.

Need concrete lead CONCRETE dumped alongside roads is jeopardising driver safety. Hastings police and Mornington Peninsula Shire officers are seeking help from the public to find those responsible for the dumping concrete at 67 South Boundary Road, Pearcedale West; the end of South bound-

ary Road. Pearcedale West; 109 Tyabb-Tooradin, Somerville; Boneo Road, Cape Schanck; and on Western Port Highway near Thompsons Road.. “The impact of this on our roads is an obvious risk to road users as well as the cost to have it cleaned and removed,” senior constable Ryan Blake, of Hastings police, said. He can be contacted on 5970 7800 or call Mornington Peninsula Shire Council 5950 1992. Alternatively, download the app Snap Send Solve on a mobile device to help identify anyone involved or to report incidents.

Busy week on road SOMERVILLE Highway Patrol night shift had a busy week setting court dates for 22 people. These included a 20-year-old Frankston man who was remanded in custody and had his car impounded after allegedly driving at up to 155kph while running red lights around Langwarrin and Frankston. The police helicopter was hovering overhead.

A MAN died after his car hit a power pole at Mt Martha, Sunday 11 August. Police said the Chelsea man, 60, was travelling north along The Esplanade when his car left the road about 3.15pm. He was treated by emergency services crews but died at the scene. An eight-year-old Frankston girl who was a passenger in the car was taken to hospital with non-life threatening injuries. Police are investigating the cause of the crash.

No arrests after shooting MAJOR Crime Squad detectives are still hunting for those responsible for shooting a man in Capel Sound, Wednesday 7 August. Police rushed to the scene in the Woodthorpe and Point Nepean roads area about 2.55am after neighbours reported hearing gunshots. They found a man in the street with wounds to the legs. Police said on Friday 16 August that “no one has been charged and the investigation is ongoing”. Rosebud Senior Sergeant Jen McKenna said police would continue foot and mobile patrols in the area. “We want to reassure everyone that police are working hard to keep them safe.”

Time For Celebration Celebrations were underway following the announcement of the new Rosebud Chamber of Commerce committee on August 7 at Peppers Report Moonah Links. A new team of fresh faces will carry on the mission of the previous committee who has represented the traders for the past 15 years. This represents a positive generational change for Rosebud with more than 50 businesses in attendance. Business owners, media representatives and guest speakers got together to make an impressive line-up of supporters at the event. The Rosebud Chamber of Commerce has always had a focus to foster and encourage business growth in Rosebud,

organising relevant promotions and events to encourage visitation to the town and also lobby local government on relevant issues to maximize benefits for the Rosebud and its businesses. The Rosebud Chamber of Commerce Committee consists of Grady Patching, President (Itsa Burger); Kate Rees, Vice President (Moreheads Lawyers); Caroline Hotton, Secretary (CG Quickprint); Julie Nolo, Treasurer (Bendigo Bank); and general members - Jodie Pearce, (Rosebud Plaza); David Virgona, (One8Two and Virgona’s Pizza); Doris Khan, (Spitfire); Joanne Avenell, (Eview Real Estate) and Chris Fabri, (The Milbri). Chamber President, Grady Patching said he was delighted

to have such a great committee and brilliant co-ordinator. “We must also thank the traders and the council for their support in this new start for Rosebud Chamber of Commerce. Our job as a committee is to generate more foot traffic to the Rosebud shopping precinct and work on modernising the streetscape, whilst maintaining the heritage of the area,” he said. “Thanks to the previous committee, Rosebud is known for some wonderful events, which we are fortunate to have been left with a legacy to build on.” Peter McNabb, President Mainstreet Australia says it was one of the best AGMs he has ever attended. “I was very impressed with

Annual General Meeting of the Rosebud Chamber of Commerce on 7 August 2019. The video presentation of the year’s activities by centre coordinator Belinda Healey was impressive and very well received by the large number of businesses that attended the event. With a vibrant new committee, the chamber is well placed to achieve great things in the coming year,” said Mr McNabb to which Councillor Antonella Celi, agreed. “It was an absolute pleasure to attend the 2019 AGM of the Rosebud Chamber of Commerce and I extend my congratulations to incoming President Grady Patching and the Committee. This is a very exciting time for the

Committee, who together with the support of the local business traders, have a strong vision and drive to activate the shopping and activity centre of Rosebud and build a healthy and thriving local economy. The Rosebud Trade is diverse in its commercial offerings and helps our community prosper with opportunities for employment, a high standard of service and not to mention, the generous support in sponsorship and enthusiastic participation towards many of our iconic local events and fundraisers,” said Councillor Celi. “I encourage all traders to come on board to support the Rosebud Chamber of Commerce and be part of this new era of inclusiveness and prosperity for Rosebud.”

Signs give insight into creek life NEW interpretative signs on Tanti Creek, Mornington, explain the natural environment of the creek, and its use by traditional owners the Boon Wurrung through to white settlement. They offer interesting illustrations and descriptions of the plants and wildlife in the creek estuary. Members of Tanti Creek Friends Judith Martin and Jan Oliver oversaw the designs of the large format signs during 10 years of research. Their work was paid for with a Mornington Peninsula Shire community grant. The signs are near the estuary at Mills Beach, and at the well-used foot bridge at Stones Crossing. Some of the early grand houses of Mornington were built along Tanti Creek, and the sign locates them on a map, with old photos and stories about the early inhabitants.

“This was very much a group researched project,” Ms Oliver explained. “One shows the plants and animals of Tanti creek; the other shows a map of the original creek, and the key features along it, such as several homes which are still lived in. “They explain how the Boon Wurrung people used the creek for food, traditional medicines and craft materials.” Ms Martin said from Sydney where she now lives: “Our research produced so much information that it was a challenge to compile and edit it all down. “There are still families along the creek who remember the large apricot orchards, and the noise of the cattle yards behind the Tanti – now Mornington hotel. “We had to decide how much of

the gossip about life along the creek should be put on the signs. “Also, we were fortunate to have artist Rachel Eareas undertake the artwork.” Visitors can see the signs at either side of the bridge at the Tanti estuary, and at Stones Crossing in Strattons Lane. A celebratory morning tea will be held 10.30am tomorrow (Wednesday 21 August), at the picnic table near the bridge at Mills Beach on the gravel carpark side. Tanti Creek Friends is a volunteer group dedicated to preserving and enhancing the environmental and aesthetic values of the creek. Working bees are held on the last Tuesday of each month.

And the beat goes on SUCCESSFUL applicants from the 2019 Live Music Professionals program held in July were at the Rye Hotel last week for a two-day engagement organised by Music Victoria. The program aims to help venue owners and managers, band bookers and independent promoters, match their services with skilled and experienced music industry professionals for one-on-one coaching, workshops, masterclasses, conferences and networking opportunities. “Over the past few years the program has yielded fabulous results, with participants reporting growth in ticket sales as well as growth in their businesses,” program co-ordinator Sarah DeBorre said. Those taking part in the event learned from A Day On The Green’s Mick Newton, Queenscliff Music Festival’s Andrew Orvis, Peking Duk booking agent Guven Yilmaz and Tasmania's Dark Mofo music curator Tom Supple. This was followed by performances by peninsula-based acts Bleach, Velvet Bloom, Taylah Carroll and Darby Schembri in the Main Sail Bar, Rye. One person benefitting from lessons learned at a previous program is Robin Griffiths, of Red Hill, who took part in the first music Victoria Live Music Professionals program several years ago. “It was a great opportunity and worthwhile experience,” he said. “I wholeheartedly recommend the program and encourage any peninsulabased music professionals starting-up to get on board.” Griffiths said his interaction with

music industry mentors and experienced professionals was invaluable. “I gained great knowledge and tips, such as working with artists’ booking agents, digital marketing skills and growing an audience. “The best aspect is the ongoing networking opportunities and I still keep in touch with several of my peers.” Using the knowledge gained Griffiths became “founder, curator, promoter and director” of music events at Music on the Hill, which brings singer-songwriters and bands to “listening, respectful audiences” on the peninsula. “I also handle a team of 12 wonderful volunteers and run the shows on the night and I am MC, too,” he said. “Other avenues have opened up since the program, including alternative venues and gigs, and I also use my skills helping the Mornington Peninsula Music Network in advocating for artists, venues and the peninsula music community in general.” Stephen Taylor

Cycling a clean, green way of exploration Stephen Taylor steve@mpnews.com.au CYCLING, cycle touring and mountain biking could grow to define the character of the Mornington Peninsula as much as its established attractions, such as the wineries, beaches, boating and fishing. The enjoyment of getting off the busy made roads, seeing the sights at a leisurely pace and spending money in shops, restaurant and cafes and on accommodation is being pushed by a group without business links or vested interests other than a love of the region and a wish that more people could enjoy its charms. “This is an activity that has huge potential as is evident from the growth of bike paths and rail trails all over Victoria,” advocate Chris Bakewell said. A member of the Blue Wheelers Cycle Club says there is a need for a brochure outlining the joys of cycling on the peninsula. “Cycling has many avenues of interest. Recreational cycling ranges from short rides with family or friends over easy distances and usually with rest breaks for tea or coffee before riding home,” Mr Bakewell said. “This is very popular with mature aged riders hoping to get fit or engage in social interaction. “Cycle touring may introduce riders to longer distances with an emphasis on self-reliance and rest days which include other recreational pursuits and interests. It may also rely on local support and discovery of attractions

that many areas of the peninsula offer. “Mountain biking involves greater challenges with much stronger bikes and fitter riders. The trails are less developed and far more challenging. “All these activities could be incorporated into this proposal as they are directly complemented by the natural surroundings and bolster local enterprises without altering the character of the peninsula.” Mr Bakewell says the Peninsula Link bike path connects to many areas outside Melbourne with trails that take cyclists off busy roads. “Connecting the Peninsula Link trail along Frankston-Flinders Road from Baxter to Somerville opens the peninsula to the metropolitan cycling system and provides a connection to the trail that is already popular from Somerville through to Balnarring. “This is almost entirely dedicated to cyclists and walkers avoiding the hazards of fast-moving traffic. The section already has refreshment shops, boardwalks, sealed surfaces and accesses a diversity of environments from country villages to rural settings, wetlands and mangroves with boardwalk variations. “It also offers access to other activities which could be included as a tourist experience, such as a ferry crossing from Stony Point to French Island, where more rugged cyclists can visit, camp overnight or explore the island before returning. “Fishing trips from Hastings could be linked to overnight stays at B&B accommodation. Ferry links could link tourists to Phillip Island as well

as Churchill Island, the koala sanctuary and Penguin Parade, the Nobbies and surf beaches before taking the ferry back. Others could continue on past Kilcunda and on to Foster on rail trails or even on to Port Welshpool. “If the trail from Balnarring was extended as a dedicated trail off the road to Shoreham and Flinders and then keeping close to the shoreline past Bushrangers Bay and Cape Schanck to connect with Gunnamatta Beach, this section could have offshoots for mountain bikes to explore inland up to Arthurs Seat and down through Greens Bush to Bushrangers Bay and then reconnect with the main trail.” Mr Bakewell is keen to see an elevated trail along the Bass Straight

coastal dunes to protect the environment while offering views of the coast as far as Port Phillip Bay. “This trail could also offer access to beautiful locations such as Rye back beach, Diamond Bay and the Bay of Islands,” he said. “Trail notes could direct cyclists to local B&Bs for overnight stays, to wineries and eateries and places of interest such as the Peninsula Hot Springs, or include horseback trail riding opportunities, as then continue on the route to Sorrento and Portsea before entering Point Nepean to explore the fortifications and Quarantine Station precinct. “Cyclists could also take the ferry from Sorrento over to Queenscliff and

enjoy a whole new range of experiences there.” Mr Bakewell said the potential was there for tourists to enjoy swimming with dolphins on Polperro or Moonraker excursions, scuba diving at the Portsea Hole, Popes Eye or wrecks, such as the Eliza Ramsden in the Rip. Visits to South Channel Fort by boat provide a fascinating history for tourists to discover, he said. Mr Blakewell says the development of heavy industry could see the peninsula lose much of its charm to the touring cyclist. “It has been Melbourne’s closest holiday resort and recreation venue for decades but, if industrial development is pursued, all this will go.”

SAFER

beaches Have your say on jet ski regulations Maritime Safety Victoria (MSV) are seeking feedback on a proposed rule change for the use of personal watercraft (PWC), such as jet skis, on Port Phillip Bay. The proposed rule would prohibit ‘irregular riding’ (such as wave jumping and freestyling) of jet skis in Shared Zones and would require jet ski operators to navigate the vessel in a direct line through existing Shared Zones. This is intended to help other waterway users predict the path of a jet ski. The proposed rule only addresses a small component of beach safety which is a major issue for Peninsula residents and visitors. Council has heard countless community safety and environmental concerns regarding jet skis. Now is the time for those voices to be heard directly by MSV. Council has been advocating on your behalf to the Victorian Government to introduce a range of measures to address personal safety, amenity and threats to marine wildlife. For more details on Council’s position visit: mornpen.vic.gov.au/pwcadvocacy

To have your say: Complete the MSV survey and share your concerns directly. The survey is open now until noon Wednesday 4 September. engage.vic.gov.au/pwc-regulatory-reform

No green thumb, but odds in author’s favour Stephen Taylor steve@mpnews.com.au

ADMITTING he “didn’t have a clue” about garden care or even being a franchisee didn’t deter Hastings resident Richard Harrison from taking up the first Jim’s Mowing franchise in the UK in 2005. For Harrison, the goal was to make enough money to pay for his and his former wife’s European holiday. “I thought, how hard can it be?” the recently published author said. Looking back all these years later he has written a light-hearted memoir, The Export Gardener, about a clumsy optimist who travels to England and decides that affluent Sevenoaks in Kent is the ideal place to launch the iconic Australian garden maintenance franchise. The book chronicles Harrison’s gardening mishaps as he services eccentric clients while recruiting franchisees and taking up village cricket after a 20-year absence from the game. The Women’s Premier Cricket umpire, who is studying Italian at U3A Mornington, said the genesis of his involvement in the business came about when the law firm where his former wife was working was asked to help debut the licenced mowing venture in the UK. “I’d been working in advertising up until then so it was a complete departure for me business-wise,” he said. “I had a big-picture view and was more interested in helping build the business across the country – it

eventually signed up 40-odd franchisees – but I decided to take up one of the franchises thinking, how hard can it be?” Very hard it seems. From chopping down the wrong tree, solving a seemingly impossible watering puzzle, to the bombshell that ended it all, his memoir is a read for those looking to

see the funny side of life. Harrison has also written a second book, First Tuesday, which is a complete departure from garden maintenance, although both depend to a greater or lesser degree on grass. It also involves a Mornington horse trainer. The plot is set five days before a

Seawinds Dementia Café COMMUNITY INFORMATION DAY WEDNESDAY 10TH SEPTEMBER 10AM – 12PM

Melbourne Cup Carnival when champion jockey Alan Da Silva is brutally murdered in a late night hit-and-run in the Crown Casino car park. Da Silva had been booked to ride Lord Melbery, the pre-race favourite owned by ruthless casino boss Albert Maressmo. Rumours abound that Da Silva was

threatening to blow the whistle on the race fix Maressmo had orchestrated the previous year - a fix that netted him millions from the bookies. Inspector Frank Dennis is assigned to the case. A former jockey himself, Dennis is all too familiar with the various distractions and temptations associated with the turf. Oblivious to all the drama surrounding Da Silva, Mornington trainer Jack Morgan is busy preparing his five-year-old mare Star Chaser for the big race. “I’ve always been a big fan of racing and started to flesh out the plot when I was at school,” Harrison said. “Racing is great theatre: It has great character such as battling trainers, jockeys struggling with their weight and all the drama of big races. “Just think of the Melbourne Cup: It draws 100,000 people to watch magnificent animals perform and, in the background, is all the drama of a whodunit.” Harrison said he spends lots of time at Mornington racecourse and walks along Balnarring beach in the mornings watching track work. He’s got to know trainers and riders and appreciates the tapestry that unites them. “Tuesday was a lot of fun to write and I’m aiming for a sequel,” he said. “The police inspector is one character who I can carry through as he’s quite complex.” The Export Gardener and First Tuesday are on sale at Petersens Bookshop, High Street, Hastings, as well as online and in e-books. An audio of First Tuesday is also available.

Supermarkets offer chance for recycling soft plastics I frequently take my soft plastics to Woolworth and Coles to place in the recycling bag where this soft plastic is used to make bollards and decking, which is brilliant and on display at the eco house at The Briars, Mt Martha. It is also used to make many types of moulded plastic furniture and play equipment. This service has been available for many years and I am surprised it is not been made known to the public with more advertising, as many people I speak to have never heard about it. The amount of space that is saved in my general waste bin is quite startling and, since doing this, my bin has never been full. Less plastic to landfall is the idea, as this simply does not decompose. Fewer plastic bags to kill our marine life, in particular. How hard can it be? Even though it is extra advertising for Coles and Woolies, perhaps Aldi and others will get on board. What really upsets me is that for all the years we were paying a huge amount of money to China to take our recyclables, we could have been using that money to build our own recycling plant. There is simply no long term planning by any government to ensure the future for my grandchildren. People are basically lazy in this regard and want the government to do all the work. It is time people washed out their recyclables themselves, so things are not re-contaminated. Why should a worker at the waste management centre be doing this job and then throwing it in the landfill anyway? We need to take responsibility for ourselves. Me, you, municipalities and governments, the whole damn community. Janet Groves, Mornington

‘Global scorching’ The Arctic is burning, with fires so big you can see them from space. The planet hasn’t seen anything like it in 10,000 years - July was the hottest month ever recorded. This isn’t global warming, it’s global scorching. And it’s going to get much, much worse. Why should Australia take drastic action when we are not the worst? Every little action helps, even those by individuals. Waiting on the rest of the world or weasel worming your way out with excuses is stupid (given to unintelligent decisions or acts: acting in an unintelligent or careless manner). Joe Lenzo, Safety Beach

Views reflect the news Following the May election I had resolved to turn over a new leaf and try to be nice to the loopy left and at least try to tolerate their opinions without disagreeing with everything. Whilst this proved easy with [letter writer] Rupert Steiner, whose ramblings on illegal

immigrants in detention are wearing thin with the majority of Victorians anyway, it was not so easy with John Cain. In his letter (“No denying change” Letters 13/8/19 ) Mr Cain offers “a few things I gleaned from the news over the last few days” and then states: “Greenland’s ice sheet is melting so fast it has caused global sea levels to rise 0.05mm in just a month.” But back in March, as reported on Fox News, a NASA survey comissioned Greenland’s government found that the world’s largest glazier had actually grown while those in North America and Europe had shrunk. That’s the problem we all face today. Mr Cain isn’t wrong as he is only repeating what has been on the news he watches, but that doesn’t make it fact. Never has the bias in our media been more apparent than in the lead-up to the last election. Channels 2,9 and10 had Labor winning a landslide on their nightly news whereas Channel 7 was more middle of the road. Try reading the same political story in the Herald Sun and The Age and you will see what I mean. Yes, global climate change is a fact, but just how much it will affect Australia is yet to be proved. Michael Free, Mt Martha

TV for deniers I wonder how many climate change deniers watched “Climate Change:The Facts” on Sunday 11 August on the ABC? Actual visual facts were on display, not fake news presented by scientists paid by mining groups and deniers spouting figures to muddy the waters. I suppose the deniers could have taped the program and ran it backwards to show melting icebergs and glaciers leaping back into where they had just fallen from. Apart from the usual sea inundation of islands and melting ice there were methane bubbles trapped in the ice. When the ice melts the methane will be released into the atmosphere creating more problems in regard to temperature rise. It was quite alarming to read that Andrew Bolt, one of the denier’s gurus, has called teenage climate activist Greta Thunberg “deeply disturbed and strange”. What a hero. Greta Thunberg was the young girl that organised hundreds of thousand of school children world wide to strike and and demand that the world leaders do something to protect their future. What did our coal hugging Prime Minister do? Ridiculed all the kids that demonstrated, telling them they should be in school and chiding the parents for allowing them to demonstrate. Over the past few years, the conservative government has provided us with inept environment ministers, One who was close to home wanted a swimming pool on the oreshore at Rosebud.

Anyway, I do hope the deniers do take the opportunity to watch the film, it might just open their eyes. Although I doubt it. John Cain, McCrae

Waste solution I believe incineration is the better option for getting rid of waste. The Olovine Burner puts no emissions into the atmosphere and the energy created is put into the electricity grid, with the money raised going to the authority that has installed the device. The cost would have to be born by all levels of government. In the long run, with our nation being very environmentally conscious, this is the answer. One of these burners is operational in Western Australia. I put this proposal to Mornington Peninsula Shire Council last year at an environmental forum at its Rosebud office. I have always been in favour of this elimination of waste products since it was brought to my attention while I was serving as a councillor with the City of Mordialloc. Ian Lyons, Safety Beach

Climate cycle The Mornington Peninsula may be declared a “Climate emergency” but, as well, I notice there are a lot of nasty unrepaired potholes on the roads (“Peninsula’s ‘climate emergency’” The News 13/8/19). I do my bit by recycling a whisky bottle every month or two, but perhaps some among us are doing much more. Politicians at all levels will commonly indoctrinate the people with a very important fact which, in fact, is a fiction. Such as the reasons reason given to invade Iraq. Conspiracy theories often turn out to be right. Here in Australia, since our great leap backward around the beginning of this century, our massive industrial power and wealth is all gone. We can’t even make cars. For some time Australia has desperately needed some new stimulus, industry, anything except a war. Not too long ago our climate started to change, as it does, cyclically. Some learned academic somewhere theorised that it was all caused by carbon dioxide in the air. Eureka. That’s it. We now have the great carbon dioxide fear. Even an emergency on the peninsula. Anything that emits carbon dioxide is despicable and must be replaced. Last year I watched on TV a visiting American expert professor vehemently advocating and demanding massive reductions in carbon emissions or we all die. He was just about frothing at the mouth. A professor of climateology, physics, science ? No, a professor of economics. That says it all. Brian A Mitchelson, Mornington

Set up by GetUp The MP for Flinders, Greg Hunt, spoke at the National Press Club last week regarding a number of health initiatives the country must take in such areas as mental health and smoking, both of which I welcome. Mr Hunt was asked during his speech about Getup’s involvement in the recent

federal election campaign. To my surprise, he claimed that Getup was “completely and utterly” engaged with the Labor Party in the Flinders electorate. As Labor’s candidate, I can categorically say that my Labor team and I did not work with Getup in any way. In fact, Getup encouraged people to vote for the independent candidate Julia Banks ahead of me, for reasons I still find baffling. They even gave me an amber light rating for my environmental record. Golly gosh, with friends like Getup who needs enemies? Getup’s involvement in the federal campaign in Flinders was extremely unhelpful and I have been critical of it publicly since the election. My personal view is that anyone handing out how-to-vote cards on election day should be from a registered political party - including Getup. Any suggestion it was involved in the Flinders Labor campaign is laughable. Joshua Sinclair, Labor candidate for Flinders

Purl, plain warmth Thanks to dedicated and generous Hastings knitters, another two loads of beanies, scarves and mittens have been delivered to Food for All for needy Mornington Peninsula families this icy-cold winter. We are also most grateful to Hastings and Dromana branches of the Bendigo Bank where items have been left for distribution over many winters of this project. Unwanted wool can still be donated for knitters who can’t afford to buy it, yet love to contribute their skills to help those people identified by St Vincent de Paul’s Mornington Peninsula Conferences. Oddments have been turned into knitted toys as well. So warm thanks again to everyone concerned and keep knitting! Fran Henke, Winter Woollies Appeal, Hastings Decisive hypocrisy The sheer hypocrisy truly leaves me speechless (“Residents win beach roads battle” The News 13/8/19). Almost 90 per of Coppin Road, Sorrento property owners voted against the special charge scheme for a footpath on their road. Now, “our” councillors support what they say is a democratic vote not to proceed with road making at St Andrews despite this project receiving a far lower vote. Breathtaking. Bill Holmes, Sorrento

Waste mismanagement During my 50 years of journalism, I covered thousands of local government council meetings. One of the key perks of travel for councillors was trips to Europe or elsewhere, investigating waste management solutions. Given the number of road miles travelled on this issue, why are we deep in waste today? Would the last councillors at Frankston and Mornington Peninsula Shire to make such journeys please explain? Fran Henke, Hastings

100 YEARS AGO THIS WEEK...

Welcome to returned soldiers at Mount Eliza Compiled by Cameron McCullough ANOTHER Welcome Home, to five returned soldiers, took place at Mt. Eliza on Monday evening last the guests being – Major Geoff. Grice, M.C. and O.B.E., Capt. Hugh Davey, Lieut Claude Grice, Serg. J. Henley and Pte. F. Mitchell. The hall, which was tastefully decorated by Miss Poultney with Cootamundra wattle blossom, and many flags, looked at its best. Cr. Flannigan, (president of the Mornington Shire) acted as chairman, and carried out his duties in his usual, capable manner. The hall was filled to overflowing, also a large marquee in front of the door kindly lent by Mr Jas. Grice. The programme opened by the playing of the National Anthem by the “Welcome Home” orchestra from Frankston. The orchestra contributed three selections during the evening, each of which was much appreciated by the large audience. The first half of the programme was given by the school children, under the direction of Miss Poultney, with recitations and singing, in a very capable and a pleasing manner. The chairman then delivered a very stirring speech, and on behalf of the residents, extended to the five soldiers a most hearty welcome home. In referring to Major Grice’s winning of the M.C., he (the chairman) considered that of far more value than a title, as it was only won by a soldier for conspicuous bravery on the battlefield. Major Grice in responding, advised

the people not to believe quite all the chairman had said with regard to his bravery; his brother had done braver deeds than he, and had got nothing. He assured his hearers that there was no part of the world he had seen could equal his own country. On behalf of his comrades and himself, he offered the residents his best thanks for the pleasant evening. Capt. Davey, Lieut. Grice, Sgt. Henley and Pte. Mitchell also briefly responded and thanked the people for their welcome. The following ladies and gentlemen contributed items of harmony, which were all much appreciated: Misses Mitchell and Cozens, and Mr W. Thomas. Miss Prosser and Miss Smith were most capable accompanist. After refreshments had been handed round the rest of the, evening was given up to dancing, to music supplied by Mr Ferguson, piano, Messrs Deane and Moseley, violins, and Mr H. Prosser cornet, a very enjoyable evening being brought to a close by the singing of Auld Lang Syne. The orchestra is deserving of special thanks for joining up from Frankston at considerable inconvenience and for helping to make the evening such a decided success. *** ON Thursday, 28th August, Alex. Scott and Co Pty. Ltd. will conduct a clearing sale at Seaford on account of Mr J. Wyatt, whose lease has expired a first class dairy herd, plant, and household furniture and effects. The sale will take place on the property adjoining Wells Road, one

mile from Seaford railway station. *** THE annual meeting of the Frankston Progress Association will be held next Friday evening, and a large attendance of new members is expected. The latter half of the past year’s work has been sadly hampered by the prevalence of influenza, and the fixing of Friday as the evening of the meeting resulted in much clashing with entertainments naturally falling on the same night. A good deal of foundation work has, however, been accomplished, and we hope that, in these more settled times of peace, the Association will start its second year with the whole-hearted support of our people and do a lot of good work. *** THE Commonwealth Treasury has approved a proposal made by the central Peace Loan Committee for the issue of a commemorative tablet to each district which subscribes its quota of the loan. This tablet will be of bronze and will be placed on the wall of the municipal building as a permanent memorial of the energy and patriotism of the district in securing its alloted quota. The tablet will be of an attractive design, bearing an appropriate inscription of the signatures of the Prime Minister and the Treasurer. It will also embody the name of the town, borough, or shire to which it is awarded, and the name of the Mayor or President who is in the office at the time.

It is intended that when an area obtains double its quota the tablet will be surmounted by the Australian coat of arms bronze. *** ON Sunday last the little son of Mr and Mrs Coxall, Frankston, aged 2 years, was badly scalded. The little fellow pulled a vessel containing hot fat over himself, with the result that his head and chest were very badly injured. The sufferer was hurried to St Pancras Private Hospital, where medical treatment was quickly forthcoming. For some days the boy’s condition was serious, but he is now making satisfactory progress. *** MR J. D. Jennings who is recovering from a severe attack of influenza hopes to resume his school duties next Monday. *** AT the conference of the subbranches of the Returned Soldiers’ Association, held in Melbourne this week, the Frankston Branch was represented by its President, Mr Arthur Wilcox, and Mr W. Hanton (vice-president). *** PTE. Reg. Ritchie, son of Mr Thos. Ritchie, of “Ramslade”, returned home on Wednesday last. He received a warm welcome from his Frankston friends, and the town was gaily be-flagged in honor of the occasion. *** IT is the intention of members of the Frankston Tent L.O.R. to tender Bro F. H. Wells a complimentary social

on Monday, 25th August, in recognition of his past valuable services, rendered as secretary of the lodge for the past 14 years. A suitable presentation will also be made to Mr Wells. The arrangements in connection with forthcoming function are in the hands of, a strong committee, with Mr L. J. Ward as secretary. *** Football The match against Balnarring, to be played this afternoon on the Frankston oval, promises to be one of more than ordinary interest, and should attract a large crowd of those interested in witnessing a well contested game. Up to the present two points only separate Frankston, Balnarring and Hastings, and on the result of this afternoon’s play will decide the position of these teams in the semi-final matches. *** MISSING Since April—Five Heifers (1 brown to black on body, white legs ands belly, springer; 1 dark grey Jersey, may have calved both 18 months old and branded BI near-shoulder, slit point near ear; 1 red, deformed fore leg. been broken above knee, age 2 years, should now have calved, branded BI off shoulder; 1 red and white, branded F off rump: 1 strawberry, branded P off rump, in calf, both good yearlings). Reward. J. H. Barclay, Hastings. *** FROM the pages of the Mornington Standard, 23 August 1919

THE MEANING OF EXISTENCE... AND OTHER SHORT STORIES

The Re-Invention of Breakfast By Stuart McCullough BREAKFAST used to be so simple; toast, cornflakes and maybe a glass of either milk or juice. Breakfast was an obstacle – something you had to deal with before you could get on with the rest of the day. It was something to be disposed of rather than lingered over. And it certainly was not something that was done anywhere other than in the privacy of your own home. It was not a social event but inherently private. As someone who was born before ‘smashed avo’ was invented, I’ve struggled to adapt as breakfast has mutated from being the most important meal of the day to the lynchpin social event that binds us together. As a kid, my abiding memory of breakfast is of emerging from the back end of the house to find my father already at the dining table. His breakfast; two pieces of honey toast, some kind of cereal and a cup of tea, would be consumed while he poured over the newspapers he’d bought over the weekend but, as yet, had not had a chance to read. My father was always first. Always. I was second in line. It’s an ‘everybody for themselves’ kind of meal. Dinner is inherently communal. Breakfast, though, is something you have to learn to do for yourself. It is, in fact, probably the first meal you ever make for yourself. From wrangling the toaster to splashing milk into a bowl and considering all-important questions like the milk to cereal ratio, taking into account hugely variable absorption rates because when all is said and done, Wheetbix are basically sponges, it’s

the meal you make for yourself. When I first met my wife, she liked to make breakfast for dinner. It’s comforting. The shift was subtle. At a certain point, I had to attend work-related breakfasts. I was resistant – it was a direct challenge to my notion that breakfast is the most private meal of the day – a time for contempla-

tion and preparation and, preferably, pyjamas. I can say from experience that it’s a mistake you only make four times – five tops – before you realize that rocking up to a work event in your Peter Alexanders and a dressing gown is generally frowned up. It certainly does little for career advancement. If it makes others feel

uncomfortable, I feel it says more about them than me. But breakfast didn’t just mean business. At a certain point, breakfast also meant the weekend. At the beginning, it was something of a test – namely, could you get up early enough and be in a fit condition to eat in public? In my twenties, this became something of a litmus test. If I was able to get myself organized and out the door to eat breakfast on the weekend, then presumably I had not over-indulged the night before. It was quite an assumption. Back then, there were Saturday mornings where eating breakfast in public felt like a major achievement. This was back in the era when I did a lot of things on my own, and wrangling yourself is a unique challenge as there’s no harsher critic or more lenient judge that your own self. I would feel self conscious as I sat by myself, hoping not to be noticed except by the waiting staff. Without exception, these meals had a medicinal quality; consisting as they did of greasy foods intended to soothe a troubled mind and equally troubled stomach. Then breakfast got seriously fancy. It was no longer a medicinal fry-up. It contained things like kale. Kale. I’m not convinced that’s even a real word. As a kid, I couldn’t have picked kale out of a line up. Now it’s ubiquitous. Surely some enterprising café will soon declare they’re ‘proudly kale free’. Even toast has become problematic. It’s no longer just toast but ‘organic sourdough made from hand-ground flour by someone with dreadlocks while watching the films

of Jean Luc-Goddard, char-grilled over an open volcano and served with bespoke marmalade made from recycled shoe leather with a cumquat infusion.’ Breakfast got way complicated. Don’t even think about ordering coffee in under six syllables. It’s impossible. The other thing I’ve noticed is that breakfast has become compartmentalized. Things that were once standard are now added extras. Even staples like bacon and eggs now treat the ‘bacon’ part of the equation as an added extra. It’s kind of like ‘Build A Bear’ where you construct your own breakfast rather than relying on the expertise of others. Once, a fancy breakfast meant choosing which miniature box you were going to choose from the Kellogg’s Variety Pack. Not any more. I’ll admit that even when we do stay in, my own approach is no longer simple. Instead, it’s an all-out extravaganza with a vast array of components that requires almost every saucepan we own to be brought to realization. I have spent Saturday mornings roasting walnuts for texture as I stir steel cut oats, sprinkled with fresh unicorn tears. Once, I made a bowl of porridge that looked like a bear. I have no idea why. I have a black belt in eggs. I can poach, scramble, fry and teach them the alphabet if push comes to shove. Kurt Vonnegut wrote a book called ‘Breakfast of Champions’. As for me, I think I’ve landed at ‘Breakfast of Dilettantes’. I’d be unhappy about this if it weren’t so….tasty. stuart@stuartmccullough.com

Sharks impress before finals DIVISION ONE

By Brodie Cowburn SORRENTO will head into finals with momentum on their side after easily defeating Pines in their last home and away match for the season. The Sharks put on a show in front of their home crowd at David Macfarlane Reserve. They took the lead early with an impressive first half, and never looked like giving it up. Sorrento went into half time comfortably six goals ahead, and didn’t let up in the second half. They were helped by three goals from Mitch Hallahan. Shannon Gladman, Nick Marston, and Chad Harris also had impressive games for the Sharks. Sorrento will head into finals full of confidence after securing the win 16.13 (109) to 6.10 (46). Pines have been suffering through a form slump in recent times, and would slip down to third on the ladder if Dromana could defeat bottom placed Mornington. The Tigers started well in the first term, but failed to punish Mornington on the scoreboard. Dromana kicked 1.6 in the first term, and Mornington made them pay in the second quarter by taking the lead. Heading into the second half down by less than a goal, Dromana were still in a good position to salvage the match. They let themselves down again in the third quarter by kicking just three behinds, allowing Mornington to stretch their lead to 24. The Tigers had another frustrating quarter in the last, only scoring three goals from their nine scoring opportunities. Dromana let a golden opportunity to take second place slip by falling to Mornington 6.18 (54) to 11.6 (72). Although the win didn’t move them

up from bottom place on the ladder, it is still a nice way for the Bulldogs to cap off what has been a tough year. Jackson Calder booted three goals for the victors, taking his total for the year for 59. At John Coburn Oval, Frankston YCW scored a big win over Bonbeach. The Sharks took an early lead by quarter time, but it was all downhill from there. Bonbeach scored just one behind in the second quarter, as the Stonecats took back the lead. Frankston YCW looked impressive in the second half and will head into the finals with hope that they can make an impact. They defeated Bonbeach 13.13 (91) to 6.3 (39). Luke Paynter was among the best for the Stonecats, scoring three goals. Although Rosebud missed out on finals, they ended their season on a positive note with a thumping win over Frankston Bombers. Rosebud were good right from the get go, and looked comfortable up by 34 at the half time break. They continued to play well as the second half rolled around, and eventually secured a 65 point win over the Bombers 21.12 (138) to 10.13 (73). Tim Lincoln and Daniel Lewis both had an impact for the Buds, scoring

fours goals each. Koby Villis was the Bombers’ best. He also kicked four goals. At Regents Park, EdithvaleAspendale capped off a tough year with a win over Mt Eliza in front of their home crowd, It was a see-sawing contest, which

saw Edithvale-Aspendale let their 20 point half point lead slip heading into the final term. The Redlegs were up by three at three-quarter time, but couldn’t hold on. Edi-Asp have had their struggles this season, but ended on a high note with a 13.13 (91) to 11.8 (74) win. Mi-

chael Bussey had a good day, kicking four goals. At Olympic Oval, Pines will play Dromana on Saturday in the qualifying final. There will be no second chances for Frankston YCW or Bonbeach, who face off on Sunday at RJ Rowley Reserve.

Kangaroos give Bulls a shock DIVISION TWO

By Brodie Cowburn LANGWARRIN have got their finals campaign off to a flying start by securing an upset win over Karingal. Both sides travelled to Somerville on Saturday for the qualifying final keen to get a win. Both sides had a good season, and did well enough to to secure a double chance for finals. The Kangaroos got the early jump over the Bulls, and took a two goal lead into the first break. They managed to hold onto that lead throughout most of the game, and were still in the box seat by three-quarter time. Langwarrin led Karingal by 14 points going into the last term. Karingal couldn’t do enough in the final quarter to make Langwarrin worry, and they eventually succumbed to defeat 6.8 (44) to 9.16 (70). The result was a shock one, with Karingal coming into the contest as favourites. They finished over two wins ahead of the Kangaroos on the ladder this season. Matthew Payenborg scored three goals for the winning Kangaroos, while Jarryd Amalfi, Luke Churcher, and Mitch Cuthbert also had an impact. Having lost the qualifying final, Ka-

ringal will now take on the winner of the Chelsea vs Somerville clash in a do or die match next week. Alexandra Park played host to Chelsea and Somerville in their semi final clash. The Seagulls got off to a nightmare start, kicking seven straight behinds in the first term to blow their chance of a big early lead. Chelsea were a little better in the second quarter and managed to sneak into a narrow lead by the time half time came around. After the main break, Somerville did some damage with a five goals to one third term. Chelsea weren’t able to claw their way back from a five goal deficit in the final quarter, and ended up succumbing to defeat 5.20 (50) to 9.12 (66). Thanks to their inaccuracy in front of goal, Chelsea have crashed out of finals and are left wondering what might have been. Red Hill take on Sorrento at Chelsea Reserve next Saturday in a semi-final clash. At Alexandra Park on Sunday, Karingal will play Somerville.

Eagles soar, seven for Stingrays SOCCER

By Craig MacKenzie THE State 5 South championship and automatic promotion are within touching distance for Somerville Eagles after Saturday’s 3-1 derby success against Rosebud. Nearest challengers Old Mentonians continued to stumble after a second successive draw and even if the grammarians win their catch-up game this week against bottom team Hampton Park United they will be four points behind Somerville with three matches remaining. Somerville has an inviting run home coming up against three of the bottom four sides and the biggest challenge facing co-coaches Scott Morrison and Dave Greening is to ward off complacency among their players. Veteran striker Mark Pagliarulo gave Somerville a dream start against Rosebud when his initial shot in the 4th minute was blocked by opposition keeper James Cinar but “Pags” won the ball back and smacked it home in off Cory Osorio. Blake Hicks should have done better five minutes later when he got free on the left of the area only to shoot wide. “Pags” shot against the near post in the 27th minute and a Callum Richardson long-range strike in the 38th minute was tipped over by Cinar but the keeper was all at sea three minutes later when he flapped at a Dave Greening freekick that made it 2-0. The legendary scorer nabbed his second just before the interval when he turned his opponent on the left of the area then hammered home a shot from 12 metres. Somerville couldn’t build on that scoreline in the second half as time and again it was caught offside and the goal of the game came from Rosebud in the 73rd minute when Mike Durrance let fly from 30 metres to make it 3-1. Rosebud forfeited the scheduled reserves game on Saturday claiming that injuries and player unavailability meant that it couldn’t field a full side. In other State 5 news 16-year-old Nathan Barnett’s hat-trick underpinned Aspendale Stingrays’ 7-3 hammering of Bunyip District at Bunyip Recreation Reserve on Saturday. A Dario Maia goal after four minutes set Aspendale back on its heels but by half-time the visitors led 5-1 and the contest was over. Bunyip had no answer to Barnett’s pace and shooting prowess and the teenager also had a hand in goals from captain Peter Dimopoulos and Ben Garside. Reserves defender Jordan Daicos came off the bench in the second half for his first senior appearance and Stingrays coach Lee Barber has much to look forward to next season with such a young side. Barnett was one of five teenagers in Saturday’s starting line-up and the oldest player was just 22. In NPL2 news Langwarrin had to rely on a 90th minute Max Etheridge strike to rule out Shaun Romein’s first-half goal for Ballarat City last weekend. The match ended 1-1 at Morshead Park Stadium and the Scott Miller-led Langwarrin has now secured its NPL2 status for next season when the

net in the 85th minute after a quick free-kick was taken by Daniel Attard however the referee pulled it back for a retake. South Yarra struck the underside of the bar in injury time. Skye’s main challenger for promotion is Whitehorse United who had to come from 2-0 down to draw at home with Bayside Argonauts. The result leaves Skye in control of its own destiny and a favourable draw. Whitehorse has just one home game remaining and faces two of the top five sides in the last three games of the season whereas Skye has two home games left and its three remaining matches are against teams in the bottom half of the league. Frankston Pines snatched a draw with a 1-1 result away to a physical Diamond Valley United side last Saturday. The home team led through a first-half Jay Lal goal but Max Caridi received a straight red and Diamond Valley was forced to play for almost 70 minutes with 10 men. Five of Caridi’s teammates were cautioned but Pines got out of jail when Lachlan McMinimee equalised in the 89th minute by finishing off a Connor McAndrews’ cutback from the right. The big news in State 4 South is the snub delivered by Seaford United to Sandown Lions last weekend. Sandown will come under Football Victoria scrutiny at a tribunal hearing on Wednesday this week to hear charges relating to its abandoned fixture against Springvale City on Friday 2 August. Seaford told FV of its fears regarding player and spectator safety for its scheduled away match against Sandown last Saturday and eventually notified the federation that it was forfeiting both the senior and reserves fixtures. Baxter is due to host Sandown Lions this Saturday and has asked FV to postpone the fixture pending the tribunal outcome. Three other clubs – Chelsea, Dandenong South and Harrisfield Hurricanes – are considering forfeiting upcoming matches against Sandown. Last weekend Baxter lost 3-1 away to Noble Park United. Noble Park led 1-0 at half-time and despite a Stuart McKenzie goal in the second-half a brace from Vlasi Zarifis sealed Baxter’s fate. Baxter defender Tim Lee was sent off in the 89th minute after receiving a second caution. This weekend’s games: FRIDAY, 8.30pm: Frankston Pines v Elwood City (Monterey Reserve), Springvale City v Seaford Utd (Ross Reserve). SATURDAY, 3pm: Langwarrin v Goulburn Valley Suns (Lawton Park), Southern Utd v Senior NTC (Monterey Reserve; under-16s 11.30am, under-19s 1pm), St Kilda v Mornington (Elwood Park), Peninsula Strikers v Mooroolbark (Centenary Park), Diamond Valley Utd v Skye Utd (Partingtons Flat), Baxter v Sandown Lions (TBC), Rosebud v Old Mentonians (Olympic Park), Aspendale Stingrays v Casey Panthers (Jack Grut Reserve), Hampton Park Utd v Somerville Eagles (KM Reedy Reserve).

elite competition will be restructured and a thirdtier league introduced. In NPLW news Southern United lost 5-0 at home to champion Calder United last weekend. The under-19s lost 1-0, the under-16s drew 0-0 and the under-14s lost 1-0. In State 1 news Josh Hine continued to impress with another hat-trick this time against hapless Beaumaris at Dallas Brooks Park on Saturday. Youngster Kyron Kerr’s through ball in the 42nd minute put Hine clear and he had no trouble slotting the ball past Beaumaris keeper Dean Menere for the opener. Great work by Liam Baxter on the right in the 58th minute and a precise square ball to the back post gave Hine a tap-in to make it 2-0. Amir Osmancevic had replaced injured Sammy Orritt in the first half and in the 70th minute his right-foot volley from just outside the area went in off the inside of the post. Mornington was cruising at this stage and Hine completed his hat-trick when he stole in at the back post and although his header was blocked he reacted quickly to prod the ball past Menere from close range. Beaumaris’ best player Rhys Craigie made it 4-1 with a well-struck shot from the right of the area in the 86th minute but the home side was out

of sight by then. In State 2 news Peninsula Strikers went down 2-1 away to promotion-chasing Brandon Park on Saturday. A Grant Lane shot following an interchange of passes between Matt Harrington and John Prescott put Strikers ahead in the 25th minute. Graham Hill equalised in the 60th minute with a low right-foot shot after being set up by former Strikers’ player Josh Calle. In the 83rd minute Scottish winger Jack Haggerty was brought down inside the box by Strikers’ keeper Colin McCormack and Josh Caruana converted the winner from the spot. Former Pines captain Hill was sent off in the 90th minute after his second yellow card. In State 3 news Skye United remains in second spot despite drawing 1-1 away against South Yarra on Saturday. South Yarra took the lead in the 16th minute when Jonathon Bithell broke through into a oneon-one and finished well past Skye keeper Jonathon Crook. A superb Mark O’Connor free kick in the 36th minute tied it up and neither side could strike a decisive blow in the second half on a deteriorating pitch. Skye striker Mitch Blake had the ball in the

Pippie powers to another decisive victory HORSE RACING

Speed machine: The John and Chris Meagher-trained Pippie makes it two wins from two starts this preparation. Picture: Supplied

By Ben Triandafillou THE John and Chris Meagher-trained mare, Pippie, is set to tackle blacktype races in the Spring after running away with the opening race at Caulfield on Saturday 17 August. The four-year-old daughter of Written Tycoon raced away for a comfortable three-length victory over the Clinton McDonald-trained Diamond Effort and the ever-consistent Amy and Ash Yargi-trained I’m Telling Ya. Having also taken care of a ‘no metro wins’ race impressively at Doomben first-up, Pippie will attempt to emulate the efforts of the Meagher-trained Savanna Amour and be targeted towards the Cockram Stakes and How Now Stakes at Caulfield next month – both Group Three races which Savanna Amour claimed in 2017. Trainer Chris Meagher said it was great to see Pippie cruise to another decisive victory. “We were hoping to see that but obviously to actually do that we weren’t quite sure,” he said. “We knew she was going well, she’s a high-class mare and we couldn’t be more pleased.” Meagher said Pippie’s racing style should also stand her in good stead for her upcoming targets. “She has a high cruising speed, she puts herself there and eliminates any bad luck. For her to do that today pretty much untouched was very impressive,” he said.
