Silver sailors

BLAIRGOWRIE sailors Laura Harding and Ella Grimshaw didn’t rest over the holidays. They raced their boat Sista Blossom to a silver medal at the International 420 Class World Championships off Fremantle. Competing against some of the best young sailors in the world in the lead-up national championships in December, the girls came in ninth overall and were second among the Australian boats to become the first female crew home. Then, in the women’s division of the ensuing world championships earlier this month, they tied first with a Western Australian crew but lost on a countback to come second. “We were pretty stoked,” said Harding, adding that the stiff Fremantle Doctor sea breeze each afternoon made sailing conditions “interesting”. “It suited us though,” she said. “We definitely exceeded our expectations.” The girls drew on their international sailing experience from races in China earlier in December where they placed 13th overall. “It was a great lead-up,” Laura said. The girls also compete with the eight or nine 420s at the Blairgowrie Yacht Squadron. The 420 Class dinghy sailed in 43 countries is regarded as the best two-crew youth performance boat with its trapeze and spinnaker. There are around 56,000 worldwide. Many regard them as a stepping stone for the Olympics and Americas Cup. For Harding, sailing will go on the backburner when term starts: the Victorian Institute of Sport scholarship winner and former Wesley College student has been selected to study science at Melbourne University.

Plan for Pt Nepean’s future Keith Platt keith@mpnews.com.au A MASTER plan for the development and use of Point Nepean National Park released on Sunday incorporates an “optimum mixed use scenario” that includes accommodation ranging from camping (short term and glamping but no long term caravans) to a boutique hotel. Two wings of the 1960s officer cadet accommodation and a former office building are targeted for demolition

while space has been set aside for two new unidentified buildings. Much of the master plan will depend on private investors in partnership with the government. With the whole of Point Nepean and adjacent waters regarded as an area of Aboriginal cultural heritage sensitivity the master plan’s key initiatives aim to “heal the site, ecologically and culturally, through collaboration with the site’s traditional owners, with the aspiration for eventual joint management of the park”.

Minister for Energy, Environment and Climate Change Lily D’Ambrosio said an initial $3.7 million would be used to provide such “early initiatives” as hiring new staff and establishing camping areas. The money will also see the appointment of a Point Nepean advisory group (reporting to the Parks Victoria Board), repairs to Defence Rd out to Fort Nepean, upgrading the Quarantine Station disinfecting complex and new signs. Parks Victoria says it will need a minimum $1.6 million annually for

“business as usual” at the park and more to implement the master plan. “This plan is about better protecting and conserving the Point Nepean National Park – but also making sure visitors can make the most out of this incredible area,” Ms D’Ambrosio said. “We’re employing new staff and introducing new camping areas to make sure all Victorians can visit this iconic destination – while maintaining its rich history and environment.” Withis a business case yet to come, it is estimated the government will

need to spend $142 million to realise the master plan. This amount will be boosted by private investment, although the government will need to spend an estimated $22m on core parts of the master plan “necessary to enable partnerships or private investment”. However, $23m is needed to attain “core deliverable projects” such as conserving heritage buildings, providing the traditional owners with a “keeping place”, demolishing buildings and infrastructure for events at Jarman Oval.

Red Hill: Cr David Gill Our rural roadsides contain a large part of the 8% remnant indigenous bushland on the peninsula, yet we do little to protect them from introduced weeds like blackberries and Patterson’s Curse, and unnecessarily harsh clearance programs. VicRoads, power companies, Council and governments must cooperate more to safeguard these valuable wildlife corridors from extinction. Farmers shouldn’t have to accept the spread of weeds onto their properties because of poor road reserve management. Fortunately, Council has committed an additional $50k for noxious weed control to the $2.1m roadside vegetation management total in this year’s budget, and is developing a $190k Biodiversity Conservation Action Plan.

Calls to ‘open’ gifts register PRESSURE is building for Mornington Peninsula Shire to make public a register of “gifts” to councillors and council officers. Anything listed in the register under the terms of the shire’s Gifts, Benefits and Hospitality Policy is audited annually by the Victorian Auditor General’s Office. Audit results are passed on to council’s risk and audit committee, but not made public. Councillors are now openly questioning the policy and its statement that: “Gifts, benefits and hospitality received must not create a real or perceived sense of obligation that may lead to a perception of preference or conflict.” The policy also states: “Councillors and council staff are to ensure that attendance at private functions does not have potential implications for council’s reputation or image or may cause an actual or perceived conflict of interest.” The gifts register at Frankston Council is open to public scrutiny and includes gifts ranging from $5 to $700, including council staff accepting hospitality at AFL and VFL games, tickets to peninsula events such as the Lights by DreamWorks experience featuring wellknown children’s characters including Shrek, Mornington Racing Club horse racing events and tickets to Frankston Arts Centre productions. Calls for the shire’s gifts register to be made public have gained momentum since revelations that shire CEO Carl Cowie was a guests aboard the cruise ship Seabourn Odyssey hired by promi-

nent businessman and Portsea property owner, Lindsay Fox (“Shire boss on Fox ‘party’ cruise”, The News 11/12/17). The seven-day Mediterranean “procreation cruise” in July 2016, from Athens to Venice, appropriately timed to coincide with Mr Fox’s 8oth birthday in April 2017. Mr Cowie has stated that there was no need for him to add his presence on the cruise to the gifts register as it was made during approved leave at no cost to council. Calls for the register to be made public also come in the lead up to the expiry of Mr Cowie’s current employment contract with the shire. Councillors must give Mr Cowie six months’ notice if they decide to advertise – rather than automatically renew the job that comes with a salary package of about $400,000. It is understood councillors will discuss the gifts register at a closed briefing before the first public council meeting of the year on Tuesday 30 January. The mayor Cr Bryan Payne - who was not a councillor at the time of Mr Fox’s “conception cruise” - has told The News that Mr Cowie’s trip “could look like a conflict of interest if it didn’t have council approve”. Former mayor Cr Bev Colomb – who was a councillor at the time of the cruise – said she had not been “part of an approval process”. She believed the gifts register “needs to be accessible to the public”. Cr David Gill has this week offered his opinion, saying that the shire “should have a council registry of gifts that is publicly accessible” (“Shire’s gifts register should be public” Letters page 16).

“A public gifts registry is another important element in showing our community that we take our Council responsibilities seriously,” Cr Gill stated in his letter. Former state Liberal MP for Mornington, Robin Cooper, who was also a long term councillor with the former Shire of Mornington, last week called Mr Cowie’s reasons for not registering the type of “gobbledegook” that would be approved by Sir Humphrey Appleby of the “Yes Minister” TV series. ”It seems Mr Cowie and his councillors think they should be subject to a much more lenient level of public scrutiny [than state and federal MPs in declaring gifts},” Mr Cooper said (“Council should have transparent ‘gifts’ list” Letters 16/1/18). Mr Cooper was also critical of four shire councillors who did not respond when asked if they thought accepting a free cruise on a ship hired by a prominent ratepayer should be declared on the shire’s gift list. The four councillors who did not respond in any way were Simon Brooks, Sam Hearn, Kate Roper and Rosie Clark. The ship hired by Mr Fox costs about $200,000 a day to charter and can carry more than 450 passengers. His guests included actor Hugh Jackman, TV personality and Collingwood Football Club president Eddie McGuire, retail billionaire Solomon Lew and his Premier Investments CEO Mark McInnes, mining magnates Gina Rinehart and Andrew Forrest, former Crown Casino boss and horse breeder Lloyd Williams, the Pratt family and politicians Bill Kelty and Jeff Kennett.

Clad in his art ARTIST John Vanderwerf makes striking image when posing with one of his aluminim sculptures at last Thursday’s opening of the Mornington Art Show. Vanderwerf says he aims for his art to be novel and new. His works in colourful alumium panels more often seen on building exteriors are suited to wall hangings, table centrepieces and garden ornaments. There are more than 800 artworks in the Mornington Art Show at the Peninsula Community Theatre, corner of Nepean Highway and Wilson’s Rd, Mornington until Australia Day, Friday 26 January.

Park residents fear for their future Stephen Taylor steve@mpnews.com.au RESIDENTS at the Sundowner Willows caravan park are nervous about their future after it was bought by neighbour The Village Glen retirement village just before Christmas. The mainly elderly residents – some living at the Eastbourne Rd caravan park for more than 20 years – are worried even though the Glen’s founder Chas Jacobsen assured them “nothing will happen for at least two years”. Resident Marilyn Pritchard said the sale of the 107-site park went through on 22 December after a hastily convened meeting of about 30 residents was held earlier in the week. “The general mood was that people were angry and upset,” she said. “They don’t know where to turn. “I know my world has been pulled out from under me. “I thought this would be my last home.” Ms Pritchard said residents had been assured of a two year respite. “We have been told nothing will happen in that time and that the new owners ‘intend’ to run it as a caravan park and that ‘future plans are yet to be determined’. “But everyone is nervous,” she said. “Legally we have no leg to stand on but some residents are upset; one couple is in their 80s and now they will be kicked out. “Fewer than five of our residents are under 60.” Chinamans Creek separates the two properties on Eastbourne Rd, Capel Sound. The Village Glen has more than 600 villas and 800 residents on its 120 acres. Chief operating officer Peter Nilsson said “a number of options are available to us” in planning the caravan park’s future.

“We have had a view as to the site for some time,” he said. “We have a business in housing older people.” He said he empathised with the park’s residents. “I understand they are unsettled,” he said. “Anyone would be when the place they are living is sold. “But it could be worse: it could have been sold to a developer and they could have been told to get straight out.” Mr Nilsson said Mr Jacobsen had fixed park residents’ rent for the two-year term as a gesture of goodwill. “We will work with them,” he said. “We are in there every day talking to them. “We understand our obligation to them.” Village Glen also runs Ti Tree Lodge Aged Care and has a site at Baxter. It is building an aged care home on Nepean Highway, Mornington, that’s due open in April.

You’ll love what we do

WHILE last week’s heatwave caused a spike in the use of air-conditioners and put extra pressure on the state’s power supply, some Mornington Peninsula businesses helped out by supporting the new community grid project. This enables them to receive rebates for voluntarily reducing or delaying their call on power until the surge in demand eases. It frees up capacity for other less-flexible users saving them money. The Rye Hotel, Hotel Sorrento and the Peninsula Hot Springs are among the first to sign on to the project that aims to deliver a more reliable power supply during peak times while they take up other forms of energy, such as PV solar or batteries. A community grid project has also been launched at the Eco Living Display Centre, The Briars, Mt Martha. The overall project will roll out in November. Households, small businesses and community organisations on the southern Mornington Peninsula – from Safety Beach across to Point Leo, Flinders and Portsea – will receive rebates and inducements to help them reduce or shift their electricity use voluntarily or through the use of energy smart systems. Demand on the peninsula peaks on a handful of hot days in the holidays when the population doubles and everyone turns on their air-conditioners. On Thursday and Friday last week – when the thermometer topped 45 degrees – there was a risk of power failure and blackouts. The peninsula’s electricity provider, United Energy, can signal requests to customers to reduce their power use through off-peak and

smart metering. The community grid project is a partnership between United Energy, Mornington Peninsula Shire and technology company GreenSync. It is supported by the state government’s New Energy Jobs Fund. GreenSync’s Jessica Mitchell said support for the project would help United Energy avoid spending $30 million on a transmission line from Hastings to Rosebud. “These innovative technology options deliver the same level of service as the traditional poles and wires network, but offer the added benefits of environmental sustainability and improved cost efficiency over the longer term,” Ms Mitchell said. The Rye Hotel’s Peter Houghton said he was thrilled to be among the first businesses on the peninsula to sign on to the project. “Programs like this allow the whole community to benefit without the worry of ongoing or increased costs of more infrastructure,” he said. “I would certainly encourage everyone to get involved in the community grid project – it’s the way of the future.” Just before Christmas the hotel installed electric vehicle charging stations, including two spots for Teslas and one for all other vehicles. Mornington Peninsula mayor Cr Bryan Payne said the shire supported the community grid project as it “works towards assisting the community to respond to climate change”. “It aligns well with the shire’s goal of being carbon neutral by 2021,” he said. Residents can register their interest on the community grid project website and go into a draw to win one of three Flex home energy monitors and $500 towards solar or a battery installation at their homes.

Views being sought on speed limits

$$..$ ea

THE views of residents and road users are being sought on speed limit reductions proposed in Bittern, Mornington, Mt Martha, Rosebud and Tootgarook. Roads under review are South Beach Rd, Bittern (Trafalgar St to Urquart Crescent); Davies Rd, Bittern; Bruce Rd, Mt Martha (Nepean Highway to east of Martha Cove Blvd); Watt Rd, Mornington; Truemans Rd; Tootgarook (south of Karella Drive to Belar Rd) and Jetty Rd, Rosebud (Old Cape Schanck Rd to Duells Rd). Factors such as the number of crashes, road environment, traffic volumes, abutting land uses, driveways and intersecting roads and the volume of complaints or requests received are considered in determining speed limit change proposals. “As a Towards Zero municipality the shire is committed to creating a safe road system in collaboration with VicRoads, the TAC and Victoria Police,” the mayor Cr Bryan Payne said. “This

AN anomaly in the way drug driver statistics are recorded mistakenly showed there were no drivers under the influence of drugs caught during a Christmas and New Year period police operation. Operation Roadwise, conducted from 15 December-7 January, targeted motorists drink driving, speeding and driving while unlicensed. Somerville Highway Patrol acting senior sergeant David Collins said last week a total of 59 drivers found to be under the influence of illicit drugs while driving listed in the Mornington Peninsula statistics included drug drivers nabbed in the Frankston area.

means we are working towards safer road use, safer roads, safer speeds and safer vehicles. “The safe speed component of Towards Zero relates to travelling at speeds that correspond with the conditions. If speed limits are set appropriately and drivers travel within those limits, the effectiveness of the Safer Roads and Safer Vehicle initiatives are enhanced and help reduce trauma.” The proposed speed limit reductions are supported by the VicRoads speed zoning guidelines and have in-principle support from police. Those wanting to have their say can contact the shire until Friday 2 February at mornpen.vic. gov.au/haveyoursay; at shire offices; email to traffic.management@mornpen.vic.gov.au or post to the Traffic and Transport Team, Mornington Peninsula Shire, Private Bag 1000, Rosebud 3939.

People using mobile phones and devices while driving and trying to navigate are also a major problem on the roads, he said. “A lot of cars we pull over do have Bluetooth but because people do have issues with it or some other reason they choose to hold their phone.” Drivers caught using a mobile phone face four demerit points on their driving licence and an onthe-spot $476 fine. Senior Sergeant Collins said several drivers were caught using mobile phones after the Portsea Polo event last Saturday (13 January). Neil Walker

Fire recruits

Trapeze enthusiasts enjoy a leap of faith

NEW firefighting recruits joined CFA stations at Mornington and Rosebud over the holidays. They will work regular shifts as firefighters and continue their training. The two new faces at Mornington and three at Rosebud fire stations were among 121 CFA and MFB recruits to complete the new Victorian recruit firefighter course, with the final 20 recruits graduating in December. The 20-week course for both MFB and CFA firefighters brought together recruits from the two fire services. The new course which began in July ensures new firefighters across the state have the same skills and knowledge, and can respond to emergencies in both urban and rural contexts. Of the 121 graduates, 81 are CFA firefighters.

Flying through the air with the greatest of ease, Those daring young men (and women) on the flying trapeze

Balancing act: Participants get into the swing of things at the Fly Factory’s flying trapeze summer school at Mornington last week. Picture: Yanni

THE song lyrics were the perfect description for young daredevils at the Fly Factory’s flying trapeze summer school outside Silvers Circus, Nepean Highway, Mornington, last week. Instructor Steen Shoar said his sold-out beginners’ classes for those aged seven and up proved the popularity of the flying trapeze among young people. Many participants get the bug and turn up multiple times. Over the three weeks of the trapeze

course he says he taught about 140 enthusiasts in four two-hour lessons each day. “They learn the basics, such as take offs and swinging on the bar, and swinging by their knees,” he said. “The main goal of the beginner is to learn to make a catch which I call the ‘Jump into the great unknown’. “They have to hook their knees around the bar and

hang upside down and swing out and make a catch. “There are safety lines and they are able to make mistakes but we talk over it and they can have another go.” An instructor for 23 years, the southern Californian began as a rock climber and pole walker with Club Med in Mexico, later learning the skills of the flying trapeze, becoming an instructor, and moving to Australia 18 years ago. Difficult weather conditions prompted Mr Steen to cancel classes on Friday. “The heat and strong north wind made it too difficult for beginners,” he said. “It would have been even more daunting.”

CHAMBER Philharmonia Cologne will this month perform Classics from Germany at concerts in Mornington and Frankston. The diverse program will range from Antonio Vivaldi’s Four Seasons to J S Bach, Peter Tchaikovsky and Niccolo Paganini.

Pt Nepean’s master plan Continued from Page 1 A further $18.24m of government money is needed for projects aimed at increasing visitor numbers, including a new jetty. The government would be a partner for a shuttle around the park, bike sharing, guided access to Aboriginal sites, a sea kayak trail and glamping. Nearly $34m is estimated to complete projects proposed in the “master plan vision”. These projects to be done “as funding is made available” include upgrading and extending bush and coastal trails and lookouts; extra car parking; Gunners Cottage precinct; “landscape healing and regeneration; conserving forts and gun emplacements. A $62m “partnership investment” is listed for “ongoing process for lease arrangements, use and conservation of heritage buildings (internal building fitout)” and “potential new buildings”. Leases will be limited to 50 years, with approved commercial “partnership” activities including accommodation (“supported” by restaurants, spas, “wellness” and events); art (exhibitions, performances and residencies); hospitality and retail (“from worldclass restaurants, to cafés, to wine bars, to provedores, to markets”). Recreation within the Quarantine Station precinct includes walking, cycling, fishing, picnicking, beach access, croquet, youth activities and children’s play as well as such annual events as swimming competitions, charity walks and runs and polo. Major events and private functions at the park are attended by 35,000 visitors a year, with a projected 60,000 visitors in the future.

Picture: Yanni

The master plan says benefits outweighed risks in deciding that a new jetty would allow visitors to arrive by boat, including for nature-based tourism (diving, snorkelling, wildlife viewing, sightseeing and heritage tours) and to support marine education and research. Point Nepean is seen as a research “crossroads for specialists and the public” into coastal and terrestrial ecology, “traditional owner knowledge of country and environmental and cul-

tural heritage”. An expression of interest program will be undertaken to find operators and establish commercial activities within the park. Uses ruled out within the national park by the plan include: industry; cinema-based entertainment, although short-term outdoor cinema and filming will be allowed; saleyards; transport terminal; and warehouses.

Gifts register should be open to public I agree with former [Mornington] MP Robin Cooper who wrote about Mornington Peninsula Shire Council’s gifts registry (“Council should have transparent ‘gifts’ list” Letters 16/1/18). Yes, we should have a council registry of gifts that is publicly accessible. Also, I believe that more meetings such as briefings should be open to the public. I have many times brought up council transparency and accountability for discussion by councillors and found they are willing to make improvements. A public gifts registry is another important element in showing our community that we take our council responsibilities seriously. Unfortunately, state and federal politicians have not taken the lead in displaying a willingness to apply the same level of open and accountable governance to themselves as they expect and demand from local government. Cr David Gill, Balnarring Beach Editor: The rules for councillors and council officers to declare gifts are set out in the shire’s Gifts Benefits and Hospitality Policy - a document that is not readily available to the public.

No response Our employees - politicians at the federal and state levels and Mornington Peninsula Shire’s CEO - seem to have forgotten that they are just that, and have all apparently decided not to respond to letters and emails, let alone issues raised. Not even a pro-forma response. Why can’t we sack the lot of them and start again with more responsible workers? Barb Rimington, Balnarring

Tourism benefits? I write to wholeheartedly agree with Mechelle Cheers who queries the benefits of tourism on

the Southern Peninsula (“Please explain tourism benefits and income” Letters 9/1/18). Certainly it’s not the residents who benefit. We’re constantly trapped in our own streets while trying to get on to Point Nepean Rd and, as ratepayers, forced to pick up the foreshore cleaning costs for the hundreds of day trippers who drive down, bring their own provisions, then leave their rubbish behind for council trucks to remove daily. I have a suggestion for the council to recoup some of the costs of tourism: install parking machines and enforce time limits. Ratepayers and bona fide residents, including holiday home owners, could be issued with exemption stickers (similar to Kingston and Bayside residents), so as not to be double-hit (rates and parking costs). This would provide harassed ratepayers and residents with some financial relief. No doubt traders would be up in arms about such a proposal, but they are only a small proportion of ratepayers anyway. I was also interested in Ms Cheers’ comments regarding hospitality employment. Most of this employment is short term, casual or both and I’d love to know how many of these employees get paid award rates and penalties, let alone superannuation. The area is ripe for a Fair Work Australia/ATO blitz. I am not anti-tourism and realise people have every right to visit our towns. However, tourism should not be such a financial burden on our infrastructure and already stretched ratepayers. Denis Mason, Sorrento

Road closures How things have changed. We used to have elected representatives called councillors, to represent our wishes to the managers at Mornington Peninsula Shire. Their role now seems totally irrelevant because decisions that impact on our community are now made internally by the “faceless men” we employ, who refuse to consult with us. Once again a commercial promotions group has been granted a permit to shut down the Esplanade from Wilsons Rd, Mornington, through Mt Martha to Bruce Rd, Safety Beach, to run a

triathlon over the weekend of 3-4 March. The closure affects 11.7 kilometres of our road and 46 intersecting streets. Mt Martha loses its car park so this company can run its business all for a permit application fee of $160. Claims of a supposed economic boost from visitors just simply don’t stack up. Being previously involved in triathlon events to international standard in three states, I know just how unsuitable this site is. It cannot be run without total disruption to the locality. There are more suitable sites on the peninsula. As an “affected resident”, you may ask why you don’t know about this, and the answer is that council management decided that you don’t need to know, but there is usually a sign near the shops a few days before the event. Despite the state government’s “good governance” guide for councils stipulating the need for consultation, our council refuses to consult with affected residents, even after numerous written requests. So, this is possibly the only notification many hundreds of affected residents will get. David Mason, Mt Martha

Review tourism There is no doubt that the subject of tourism on Mornington Peninsula needs an urgent review. Action needs to be taken to educate residents on the value of tourism in the community and, most importantly, how it must be managed. This would then obviate the need for some locals to constantly whinge about valued visitors. I have never seen tourism so disorganised as it is on our peninsula. My background includes counselling and developing tourism in centres throughout Australia, consulting leading tourism operators, plus operating my own attractions and probably Victoria’s largest caravan park. At the outset the community requires a professional education program which would outline the value of this “clean industry” and, most importantly, how it should be operated in a district. For instance, from when I launched it publicly, Sovereign Hill now has about 500,000 visitors annually. It has contributed more than $25 million to the district and has about 350 staff and 250 volunteers. Most importantly, you do not

hear Ballart residents complaining about visitors to this and other Ballarat attractions. The same can be said about districts such as Echuca (Port of Echuca) and Swan Hill (Pioneer Settlement). The industry also introduces young people to the business world as casual staff. It appears that Mornington Peninsula Shire Council is not geared to handle tourism efficiently and effectively. Councils normally do not allow people to camp on open public land. They also have a communications program to inform visitors regarding the location of rubbish receptacles and politely warn them of potential fines. This should be overseen by an adequate number of rangers, trained on how to liaise with visitors in a friendly but positive fashion. Let’s stop the whinging and instead be objective. Howard Bull, Mornington

Pool’s time has come I read with interest the letter from Ian Bennett (“Solo swimming” 16/1/18) as he has missed the point about the need for a 50 metre indoor aquatic centre. It is not about Carol Dickman or anyone else doing laps, it is about everyone having convenient access to a 50m indoor pool, for swimming, water aerobics, water sports, a hydrotherapy pool (for when you’re injured or old), a wading pool for toddlers and overall, a social hub. Water aerobics at the existing 25m pool has to limit numbers at times as there is not enough pool area for everyone to participate and have three lanes available for lap swimming. The need is compounded by a government directive that all primary school children are to have swimming lessons and be able to swim before they graduate to senior school. The cost and time involved in transporting schoolchildren to the nearest existing venues will be outrageous. If Mr Bennett is worried about the cost to ratepayers, maybe the money spent on the sculptures at either end of Rosebud recently should be questioned. Also let’s not forget the purchase of Wannaeue Place at upwards of $5.75 million set aside for an aquatic centre. So please let’s not be personal about someone


speaking on behalf of many southern peninsula people and look at the bigger picture. We’ve waited long enough. Pamela Davis, Rye

Frankston first I totally agree with Ian Bennett (“Solo swimming” Letters 16/1/18) that we do not need, or are entitles to, a 50 metre swimming pool. Because of the 10-year delay between former councillors and the bloody mindedness of their supporters for a pool on the Rosebud foreshore, we dipped out on the right to a regional 50m pool - Frankston Council got it instead [officially opening the Peninsula Aquatic Recreation Centre in September 2014]. We the ratepayers were expected to fork out $40 million for a 25m pool on the foreshore. Now, Carol Dickman wants the ratepayers to fork out in excess of $50m plus annual running costs because she wants a 50m pool (“Pool support” Letters 19/12/17). To put it simply: Ms Dickman, you can’t have one. As Mr Bennett said “you need a catchment area of at least 100,000 people”. The petitions and the polls conducted at public meetings clearly showed little support across the ratepayer base of the southern peninsula for a pool in the first place, and they were certainly against one being put on the foreshore. The pro pool people remind me of little children, they are to finally get the pool they want, but now they want a bigger one even after they were content to accept a 25m pool on the foreshore. It’s quite amusing when they turn up at council meetings decked out in towels and bathing caps demanding a rethink about the foreshore even after being told that it is never going to happen. My advice is to accept a 25m pool with all the trimmings on the designated site or nothing. Maybe because Mornington has a bigger population the 25m pool should be placed there for the greater good of the southern peninsula community and Ms Dickman and others can continue to support the pool in the Rosebud industrial estate. John Cain, McCrae

Hell on Helm

On the evening of Wednesday 10 January I drove my mother home to Martha Cove, with my baby also in the car. I turned into Helm Av and was horrified to see the number of cars parked bumper to bumper on the left (south) side of the road. Some were on the road and some were partly on the nature strip, so that only one car could drive down the road at a time despite it being two lanes. When I was halfway up the street, a large car came speeding towards me and I barely missed hitting parked cars when I tried to get out of its way. There was not enough room to negotiate the traffic safely and I was struck by how dangerous this is. What if an emergency vehicle such as an ambulance or fire engine needed to pass through? Or someone was trying to cross the road and couldn’t get out of the way in time? Or there just wasn’t enough room for me to swerve and we had an accident with my baby in the car? The current parking arrangements at Martha Cove, and particularly Helm Av, are not safe. In other parts of Melbourne this issue is addressed with either permit parking, no standing zones, or angle parking, so that gaps are left between vehicles to give you room to pull over if someone is coming the other way. Why could this not be considered for Martha Cove, along with the construction of adequate visitor parking, which will be required in any case when the commercial precinct is completed. A little ingenuity on the part of Mornington Peninsula Shire Council would lead to greatly increased amenity for Martha Cove residents and visitors, as well as sustainability for the development overall.

100 YEARS AGO THIS WEEK...

Seaford man accidentally shot by local youth Compiled by Brodie Cowburn JOHN Stewart, of Carrum Vale Farm, Seaford, was shot on Sunday, through the foot, by a pea rifle carried by a youth named Shoall, the weapon accidently going off. The bullet entered Stewart’s foot above the ankle, coming out under the heel and lodged in his boot. Stewart is progressing favorably. *** WHEN the letter from Mr Jas Grice was read at the last meeting of the Shire Council, re the Crimean veteran J. Coleman, being well looked after at the asylum. Cr Longmuir said that he had been notified a few days ago that the old man had died shortly after his admission to the Institution. *** THE telephone is now installed at the Frankston Police Station, the number being 54. This is an innovation that has long been asked for by the residents. The force has also been strengthened by the appointment of Constable A. J. Farley as second constable at Frankston. *** UNDER the pretence of seconding the State Ministry’s policy of economy, a deputation from the Phillip Island and Woolamai shire council endeavoured on Wednesday to induce the Minister of Public Works to sanction the employment of a shire engineer at a salary of £20 a year, with 5 per cent commission on all works carried out by him. Mr M’Whae of course, declined; and as

the deputation, which was introduced by Mr Downward, Minister of Mines, also asked for a Government Grant the Minister took the opportunity of reading councillors a lecture on true economy. The rule is that a qualified engineer must he appointed in every municipality and must be paid not less than £110 a year. The deputation declared that in proposing this wage of £20 it was “practising economy.” Mr M’Whae retorted that if it practised economy it must keep within the law, as its proposal was contrary to the Local Government Act, which was amended expressly to provide that a qualified engineer must be engaged by every municipality. The proposal of the deputation to pay a nominal sum was a mere subterfuge. A municipality with a revenue of £6500 should be able to afford to pay a man the extra £20 a year. *** MISS Vera C. Jennings of Frankston has been successful in gaining four honors - 2 first and 2 second - at the Melbourne University for the first year B.A. examination and in addition won the exhibition for French. *** A MEETING of the members of the Frankston Branch of the Citizens’ League will be held in the Mechanics institute on Tuesday evening at 8 o’clock for the purpose of settling accounts in connection with the late Referendum. *** OWING to the party of returned soldiers not being able to arrange a trip

to Tyabb before March, the annual Tyabb picnic has been abandoned for this year. *** THE weather was very unfavourable for the Red Cross Social last Saturday night and the attendance was small in consequence, but an enjoyable evening was spent. Songs were rendered during the evening by Miss Mc Cool and Miss Woodhouse. *** THE British, American, Australian, Canadian & New Zealand Y.M.C.A. organisations have united to form an international Y M.C.A. hospitality league. The temporary head quarters of this body are at 45 Bedford Square. The aim is to fill up every moment of a soldier’s time with healthy amusement and recreation. Men on leave will be able to see without charge of any kind, except a few pence for bus or tube fares, the most interesting places in London. *** MISS M’Kenzie entertained about fifty boys of the seaside home, on Saturday last, the 12th inst., at the residence of Mr and Mrs P. E. Forster, “Beachleigh.’’ The children were conveyed in drags from the Home on Oliver’s Hill and arrived at their destination in the afternoon. The grounds which were spacious, were artistically decorated for the occasion. The boys engaged in games after which they sat down to tables which were laden with an abundance of

good things suitable to the juvenile taste:- sandwiches, cakes, pastry, fruit, lollies and soft drinks of all kinds. Mr W. Minton, the Hon. Superintendant of the Homes, in a few choice words stated that it was gratifying to know that there were kind friends in Frankston who were interested in the welfare of the orphans. *** A MAN who gave the name of Herchimer George Middleton Wartmann was under the influence of drink and behaving very offensively in Bay St on Friday evening 11th January Const Ryan arrived on the scene and placed Wartmann under arrest. The prisoner resented being arrested and had to be handcuffed. He pleaded guilty to a charge of offensive behaviour and was fined 10s in default 24 hours inprisonment. *** JOS Dean v L. Davidson—To show cause why he had not paid a fine of £2 which had been made in November last. The defendant pleaded that he had been ill and unable to work. Adjourned for 4 weeks to allow defendant time to pay the fine. *** H. C. Barclay for neglecting to have his child vaccinated was fined 40s, in default distress. *** ALBERT Zerna and Albert Terry were charged by Const Ryan with unlawfully damaging a boathouse at Seaford on 24th December, and also with carrying away property of the value of 25s belonging to C.

Anderson, consisting of fishing lines, tackle etc. Mr Nolan appeared for the youths who were only about 17 or 18 years of age. *** IT would be idle to pretend that the political outlook is one which any thoughtful Nationalist can regard with satisfaction. The “No” vote created a very difficult position, of that position the Governor General endeavoured to make the best, and the people of Australia must try to follow his example. In order to do that they must regard the party extremists, who are exchanging insults within the walls of parliament even more vigorously than outside them as “shocking examples” rather than guides. His Excellency sent for Mr Tudor, and if Mr Tudor could have convinced him that official Labor had a reasonable chance of carrying on, there would have been a Labor Ministry in office today. His Excellency very properly refrained from adding that an election was not likely to give Mr Tudor a victory of any sort. Ignoring the point that tens of thousands of Liberals voted “No” on purely personal grounds and would vote for their accustomed representative next April as they did last May, the idea of the Commonwealth devoting a year to an election followed by a deadlock, and then by a second election is intolerable. *** From the pages of the Mornington Standard, 19 January 1918

THE MEANING OF EXISTENCE... AND OTHER SHORT STORIES

The Big Bushwalk Time Travel Extravaganza By Stuart McCullough WE’D done it as kids. On family holidays to Wilson’s Promontory, we’d go for bushwalks. Sometimes the whole family. Mostly just my father, brother and I. To anyone else, these would be a nice day out. To us, though, they were great feats of endurance. The whole holiday was defined by these epic adventures. The anticipation built in the days leading up and was succeeded by days of recovery as we struggled against a tidal wave of lactic acid. It was something we enjoyed. As adults, though, it had never occurred to us to go bushwalking. Until this year. Things are different now. Our father is older and it’s been a long, long time, since I’ve spend time in a Jayco. We have wives, responsibilities and are always crying time poor. Inevitably, we don’t talk as much as we did when we shared a room. Most changes are for the better – for starters, I no longer own a pair of shorts with white piping and a slit up the side of the leg. And my shoes are no longer held together by Velcro. Instead, I have hiking boots – footwear I bought years ago with the best of intentions but have rarely used. For the last three years, we’ve been heading to Merimbula over the New Year. This year, I was determined that my brother and I would go for a bushwalk. Naturally, I over-prepared. If I’m being honest, I looked less like a bushwalker and more like a survivalist; the kind that screams about the end of days before digging a hole in the ground and eating handfuls of dirt. Wide-brimmed hat, backpack, enough sunscreen to turn me into an albino, water, snacks, compass, a sandwich

PAGE 36

and camera - I was ready. My brother, on the other hand, turned up with a cup. It was, he explained, so that he could stay hydrated. He planned to

Southern Peninsula News 23 January 2018

do so by either drinking from wild streams or his own urine. He didn’t say which he preferred. Nine kilometers sounded reason-

able enough. Not too ambitious, but something that was worthy of having a backpack. Unfortunately, it was one of those bushwalks that ends somewhere other than where it starts, so we needed to get both dropped off and picked up. My wife volunteered and I asked her to slow down to around forty kilometers per hour as we approached the drop zone. As it turned out, the drop off point was a lot further away than I realized. South past Eden, then along a gravel road. It was isolated; the kind of place that has no mobile reception and where the appearance of, say, flesh-eating zombies would come as no real surprise. It was here that we were deposited. The drop off point was a small campsite. There were about twenty tents, no electricity and a giant goanna lurking in the car park. I turned to see my brother, his survival cup already at his lips. We hadn’t seen any wild streams yet so I could only assume that he was drinking something else. When he’d said that he was prepared to drink his own urine, I’d assumed this was something that’d occur in an emergency and not before we left the car park. Serves me right for making assumptions. We headed off. Me in my widebrimmed hat, my entire body dipped in sunscreen, carrying a backpack and wearing the kind of hiking boots that are, in effect, the footwear version of a four wheel drive; my brother wearing a flat cap, shorts and sneakers, looking as though he’s on the way to a barbecue. Had it all gone wrong and we’d ended up falling into a mud-pit with our fossils discovered by a future

generation of geologists, they’d no doubt be puzzled as to why the guy dressed in neat-casual was hanging out with the survivalist. I’d forgotten how competitive I was. As a kid, I always wanted to beat the recommended walking time. As if I were not trying to soak in the wonders of the natural world but competing in some kind of time trial. If they said four hours, I wanted to get it done in three. With the benefit of experience, I found that absolutely nothing had changed. I was still keen to make good time. My brother was surprised when I suggested that we jog the first leg. We walked and, more importantly, talked the whole time. It made me wonder why it is that we’d waited so long to do something we both enjoyed so much. The track led us along the coast and past rock pools. We had lunch in a small, horseshoe bay. We spotted more goannas, some pink heath and came across all manner of beauty. And then we reached the pickup point. There we found a beach with the bluest water I think I’ve ever seen. Naturally, we went for a swim. As I paddled backwards in the cool, clear water, I began to wish that I’d taken the backpack off first. I don’t know where the photos of those early walks are. Probably somewhere at my father’s house. I think I took those bushwalks for granted. Not any more. I’ll make sure I make time for another trek. It’ll do me good. Instead of packing away the boots, hat and backpack for goodness knows how long, I’ll keep them within easy reach. I’ll be ready. stuart@stuartmccullough.com

scoreboard SOUTHERN PENINSULA

Kangas graduate to top spot PROVINCIAL

By IT Gully FINALLY, there was some play in MPCA Provincial cricket on Saturday. It was a great week for Langwarrin CC, who jumped to the top of the table, relegating Peninsula Old Boys to second place after recording a seven wicket win at Peninsula Grammar. Meanwhile, there is now a 20 point gap between fourth-placed Mornington and fifth placed Baxter. Since being promoted back to Provincial, Langwarrin has struggled against POB and Baxter. On Saturday, however, the monkey was lifted off the Kangas’ back after

winning comfortably against POB. The Kangas lost the toss and bowled first but got away to a great start with the ball, dismissing the usual thorn in their side, (and may other sides also!) Dylan O’Malley after he started the innings with a boundary. Fellow opener Wade Pelzer hit 48 and Glenn Prendergast made 54 in POB’s total of 6/155, while Adam Campbell was the pick of the bowlers with 3/19 from eight overs. Langwarrin’s top order did the job for them. Simon Parrott found himself at the top of the order and responded with 32, while Matt Prosser hit 44 to be the backbone of the innings.

Andy Johnson was the catalyst in the victory, blasting nine fours and one over the rope in his unbeaten 68 that saw the Kangas make 159 and claim victory. For the first time this season, it actually does appear that Baxter may miss the finals. On Saturday, it lost its fourth game of the season. This time it was to Sorrento. It was Sorrento’s second win of the season. With just four matches left in the home and away season, the reigning premier is going to start from a fair way back. It will start 20 points behind and faces Pearcedale, Mornington (4th), Langwarrin (top) and Mt Eliza (third).

It won’t be easy for Baxter but it should beat Pearcedale and Langwarrin is their bunny side. If it can beat Mornington also, then they would be right in the mix. On form, however, things would need to change a lot. The top three made some runs on Saturday but again none of them went on with it – Brittain 33, Warwick 31 and Rule 33. Justin Bridgeman was rolled for five and Dale Irving for 9. Baxter finish 9/169. Bobby Wilson was the best of the Sorrento bowlers with 4/28. Sorrento needed all of its overs (40) to score 7/170 and claim a one-run victory.

Jedd Falck scored 45 and Liam O’Connor 44 for the Sorras while Corey Harris hit 30, as did Chathupama Gunasinghe. It was enough to claim the win. Mt Eliza smashed bottom of the table Crib Point. The Mounties batted first and made 144 with Justin Grant top scoring with 36. In reply, the Pies were whipped for 75, Neil Clark top scoring with 27 after being the best of thee bowlers with 3/21. Lyle House was vintage, snaring 3/9 from eight overs. In the final game Mornington beat Pearcedale in a non-eventful and lowscoring clash.

Tight run to finals PENINSULA

By IT Gully THINGS have tightened right up in MPCA Peninsula cricket with five sides from third to seventh within one game of one another. Pines jumped into third place on Saturday with a great win over top of the table Main Ridge, while Moorooduc is just a game outside third place, despite a loss to Flinders on Saturday. Delacombe Park is the only team not in the mix and remains the front runner to be relegated at season’s end, even after beating Red Hill on Saturday. The Hillmen batted first on home turf and would have been very happy with its 5/232. On most occasions, that’s a winning score. The Red Hill top five all made great starts. Matt Merifield hit 40, Andrew Mock 38, Riley Shaw 35 from 35 deliveries, Simon Dart 51 from 40 deliveries and Tom Collett smacked 44 from

30 balls. Nick Christides was the pick of the Parkers’ bowlers with 4/53. The visitors had some work to do with the bat but did it with three overs to spare and five wickets in hand. Jon Guthrie belted 87, James Spencer 38, Rob Fisher 29 while Joel Malcom finished unbeaten on 25. The Parkers finished with 5/236. Flinders and Moorooduc were also embattled in a high-scoring game. The Ducs batted first and made 9/201, Pathum De Mel turning from dominant bowler to dominant batsman with 89, including six sixes. Justin McCleary added a well-timed 28 batting at 10 while Ben Williams opened with 29. Max Royal was the pick of the Flinders’ bowlers with 3/44. Regardless of the strong total, Moorooduc couldn’t defend it. Flinders scored the winning runs (6/206) in the final over, six wickets down.

Deft touch: Somerville easily defeated Long Island. Picture: Andrew Hurst

Shane Beggs was the main man, finishing unbeaten on 92, including seven fours and four sixes. Somerville belted Long Island, despite losing 10 wickets. The Eagles rolled the Islanders for just 70, Matt Eager the destroyer with 5/13 from seven overs, while Blake Terlaak claimed 3/24 from seven. Aaron Paxton top scored for the Islanders with 17. In reply, Somerville was 2/0, however, Leigh Lowry (45) and Andrew West (32) guided their side to victory. In the final game, Pines won comfortably against Main Ridge. The Piners batted first and helped themselves to 9/208, thank largely to 31 from Pat Jackson batting at nine, while Jack Peace-Stirling hit 54 and Ash Hupe 42. The Piners then rolled the Ridge for 173 in 36.3 overs, Hupe snaring 4/48 from eight overs. Jackson picked up 2/29.

No bail out: Baden Powell went down to Seaford after scoring 138. Picture: Andrew Hurst

Blues hit rock bottom DISTRICT

By IT Gully HASTINGS fell to its worst defeat of the season on Saturday in MPCA District cricket, humiliated by Rye. While the Demons started the season well, its form in recent times has been equally appalling as the Blues. On Saturday though, Rye again justified why it is in the top four, all be it on the back of a solid performance from Matt Whelan. Unfortunately for the Demons, there is far too much reliance on Whelan. It did win without Zac Stevenson though. The Blues tried to mix it up and sent Rye into bat after winning the toss. Whelan came in at three and made 71, while Aaron Vernon, who rarely lets the team down, contributed 25, helping Rye to 8/149. Isuru Dias was superb for the Blues, bowling seven overs and finishing with 4/16. Needing 150 to win, the show ended for the Blues when Rob Hearn was rolled by Whelan for 18. Like the Demons rely on Whelan, the Blues rely on Hearn. Luke Hewitt was back into the line up but he was Whelan’s second victim for eight. There was no hope at that point and the Blues were rolled for 83. Whelan finished with 3/27 while Vernon snared 3/15. Seaford Tigers stayed in touch with the top four, smashing Mt Martha. The one-sided performance came on he back of a dominant display from openers Ash Mills (95) and David James (68). The Tigers finished on an

unbeatable (6/249). In reply, the Reds were ordinary at best, bowled out for just 91. Skipper Rhys Whitling was the best of the Mt Martha batsmen with 29. Best of the Tigers’ bowlers was Matty Roach, who took the new pill and picked up 2/6 from five overs. Seaford too made a top two spot possible with a solid win over top of the table Baden Powell. The Braves made 7/138 after being sent into bat by Seaford skipper Ryan McQueen. Travis Kellerman top scored for the home side with 48 (off 105 balls), while Rhys Elmi made 42 (off 73 balls). The poor run rate had a massive effect on the final total. Chasing 139 for victory, Daniel Polson top scored for Seaford with 50, while Scott Manders contributed 26. It was enough to get the visitors to 6/140 in the tense final over. Craig Entwhistle was the pick of the Braves’ bowlers with 3/26. Rosebud got the job done in the final match of the District round. The Buds batted first and made an ordinary 127, Pete Doughty top scoring with 34 and Billy Quigley getting 27. In reply though, Sam Mullavey (27) was the only batsmen in the Heatherhill top eight to score double figures. Despite this, the Hills finished just 10 runs short in the 39th over. Pat Nagel was the best of the Rosebud bowlers with 4/35 while recruit Janaka Kumarage made an immediate impression with figures of 3/7 from eight overs, including four maidens.

Jobling blasts a big ton SUB-DISTRICT

By IT Gully BONEO moved back into the top four after knocking over Ballam Park in MPCA Sub District cricket on Saturday. The Pandas (68 points) moved two points clear of Tyabb and Carrum in fifth and sixth place on the ladder and a game clear of Frankston YCW in seventh place (56). The Knights and Skye (42) and Balnarring (30) now appear too far behind to play finals. The Pandas kept their finals hopes

alive with a crushing with, thanks largely to a sensational display from Chris Jobling, who smashed nine sixes and six fours on his way to a match winning and unbeaten 121 from 110 balls. Cam Williams then strode to the crease in the middle order and belted 57 from 30 balls. The Pandas finished on an unbeatable 3/246. Jobling then added three wickets to his century, helping his team to a 99run victory. The Knights were bowled out for 147. Zac Clements top scored for the Knights with 53.

Carrum is now knocking on the door of the top bracket after beating YCW. It was a critical win for both teams, with the loser falling a game behind fourth place. The Stonecats were never in it after its batting performance, rolled for just 99. Skipper Jason Bedford top scored with 34. In reply, Carrum got there four wickets down (4/101). Skipper Josh Dent top scored for the Lions with 33, while Jake D’Atri, who picked up two wickets with the ball, hit 21. Dromana moved to second place on the table with a big win over Skye.

The Hoppers made 9/178 with Blake Pappas dominating with bat and ball. Pappas opened the batting with 32 while Zac Clan hit a half century and Adam Ciavarella 39. Pappas then snared 4/37 with the ball and Jack Fowler picked up 3/27 to help roll Skye for 114. Tootgarook still holds top spot after beating Tyabb. The Yabbies batted first and gave themselves a slight chance after scoring 8/148, Nick Taranto scoring 66 and Jarrod White 38. Given they faced 187 balls between them, that

was probably the reason they lost. In reply, the Frogs scored 5/150 in 34 overs. In the final match, Balnarring’s season hit another low, beaten by Carrum Downs. The Saints batted first and made just 107. Jayden Barker snared 4/24 for the visitors. The Cougars then scored 7/111 in 22.2 overs to comfortably win the match with skipper Ryan Lynch top scoring with 56.

Strikers return to State 2 South-East SOCCER

By Craig MacKenzie FOOTBALL Federation Victoria will announce this week that Peninsula Strikers have been reinstated in State 2 South-East after being relegated last season. The federation contacted Strikers late last week with an offer of reinstatement and the club jumped at the chance. Reports that State 1 North-West club Bendigo City had pulled its senior team out of competition and that a State 1 South-East side had taken up that vacancy remain unconfirmed. However South Springvale, which was relegated from State 1 South-East last season is understood to have been reinstated thereby creating the vacancy for Strikers. The remarkable turnaround has added to the positive vibe already at Centenary Park due to the major overhaul of the first team squad conducted by head coach Andy O’Dell. The club has also been pleased with the quality of the high-intensity training sessions overseen by assistant coach Jamie Paterson. The influx of new players continues apace with news that the club has signed winger Nathan Smith from Mornington. He should feel at home alongside his former Brigg Town teammates Ryan Thompson and Oscar Marsden who arrived from England last week. Hot on their heels is another O’Dell capture, 29-year-old former Hull City and Milton Keynes Dons midfielder Nicky McNamara, who is due to arrive this week. Meanwhile English imports Connor Belger and Paul Speed were expected to return from the UK yesterday (Sunday) intending to take up Langwarrin’s two NPL visa spots. Ironically there to greet them at Melbourne Airport and drive them back to the peninsula was another visa player, Liam Baxter, who may be forced to quit the club due to Belger and Speed’s return. Although veteran Langy gaffer Gus Macleod is yet to make the call on which two players will fill the visa spots Baxter scored two goals last Thursday night in a trial game for Bulleen and if he is released by Langy two local clubs are waiting to pounce. Both Mornington and Casey Comets want to sign the livewire Scottish striker. Comets boss Jamie Skelly has been tracking Baxter for weeks while Mornington head coach Adam Jamieson has received two recruiting setbacks in re-

cent weeks and Baxter is a perfect fit for the Dallas Brooks Park outfit. Attacking midfielder Ryan Worrall from Eastbourne in England’s Vanarama National League South recently told Mornington that he won’t be coming over after agreeing terms and key local signing, striker Adam Wright from Northcote City, has told the club he intends to return to the UK in April. “If he (Baxter) was to become available we’d absolutely be interested. He’s a goalscorer,” said Jamieson. “Our priority is to get a couple of quality strikers in and he clearly fits the bill.” Welsh import Curtis Hutson arrived in Melbourne on Friday and had his first training session with Mornington on Sunday morning. “He certainly looked the part,” said Jamieson. The 22-year-old can play up front or in midfield and was only 13 when he made his debut for the Welsh under-16s during his time at Cardiff City’s academy. He is the cousin of Manchester United legend and newly appointed Wales manager Ryan Giggs and has joined from Barry Town after stints with Port Talbot Town, Newport County and Merthyr Town. Two other visa players who played an

Southern Peninsula News 23 January 2018

integral role in Langy’s 2017 championship also are on the move. Alex Metcalfe returned to the UK yesterday while teenage striker Aaran Currie has at least four suitors– Hume City, Sunshine George Cross, Preston Lions and Richmond (and maybe one local club). Langy remains firmly in squad-building mode and despite promising signs in pre-season hitouts against Box Hill United and South Melbourne it was outclassed by Heidelberg United at Lawton Park last weekend losing 5-0. The gulf between established heavyweight Heidelberg and the NPL newcomer was most evident in the first half when George Katsakis’s side strolled to a 4-0 lead at the interval. The Bergers took an early lead following a quick break that ended with Tom Cahill in a one-on-one with towering Langy goalkeeping triallist Josh Dorron and tapping the ball home from close range. Dorron is on Ballarat’s books after making the move from Alice Springs last year to further his soccer career. He faced a baptism of fire against the Bergers who went further ahead after a Jack Petrie sidefoot following a clever cutback from a free-kick on the right. Scottish winger Sean Ellis was taunting and teasing all comers down Hei-

delberg’s right and he dragged down the ball superbly and skipped past a defender before walking it into the unguarded goal to make it 3-0. When Ellis set up Petrie to slam home and make it 4-0 a deluge was on the cards. But a considerate Katsakis made a raft of changes in the second half as his side took its foot off the pedal and the only goal of the second stanza came from Nashir Hussainy. Langy’s under-20s suffered their first pre-season loss when they went down 4-1 to Heidelberg in the curtain raiser. A deflected shot from Cameron Boulton was Langy’s sole response against the best side it has played so far. Ayden Eszes (quad), Cody Eszes (overseas with Australian schoolboys) and Keegan Guy (on holiday) were unavailable so Boulton, Josh Millar and Calvin Delaney were drafted in from the under-18s. Langwarrin will play Clifton Hill on the main pitch at Lawton Park on Tuesday this week with a 6.45pm kick-off. The Under-20s will play at the same time on the top pitch. This replaces the previously scheduled away fixture against Green Gully which has been scrapped. Once upon a time Caleb Nicholes, Mitch Blake and Kurt Wagner-Golds-

worthy all played for Langwarrin but on Saturday at Monterey Reserve they made their unofficial debuts for opposing clubs with mixed results. Nicholes opened the scoring for Skye United in the 42nd minute after dispossessing Frankston Pines central defender Ioasa Saemo and slotting the ball past triallist keeper Brad Klarenbeek. New Pines recruit Wagner-Goldsworthy headed into his own net under challenge from Blake at the back post in the second half to make it 2-0 then later Blake’s intended cross sailed over Klarenbeek’s head and into goal to complete a 3-0 scoreline. Skye accommodated marquee signing Nicholes by playing him in a central striking role with Daniel Attard on the right and Blake on the left. Skye coach Billy Armour is on holiday for three weeks so assistant coach Billy Rae was at the helm. Seaford United striker Mitch Lander lined up for Pines but the club remains mystified by the ongoing absence of midfielder Matty Davis and striker Jack Wrobel. Prior to the match Pines announced that it had clinched a three-year fivefigure shirt sponsorship deal with Mitchell Torre. Currently based at Patterson Lakes the real estate company plans to open a new office in Frankston. In other news Seaford United meets with Frankston council on Monday 5 February to sign off on a major clubroom development at North Seaford Reserve. Two women’s changerooms, a referees’ room, a first-aid room and a storage area are part of a $500,000 refurb that will be completed this year. The State government tipped in $300,000 to the project with council making up the difference. State 4 South side Baxter enjoyed a 4-1 romp over visiting Hampton Park United on Saturday with a host of new signings and triallists on display. Alan Lipsett, Dan Disseldorp, Justin Brown, Ben Meiklem and Grady Vickers were with Baxter last year but the match also featured new keeper James Foster, defenders Joe Iline and Tim Lee, striker Izaak Barr and former Langy midfielder Matt Morgan with potential signings Andy Bayliss-White, Danny Hansard, Mornington striker Jason Bradbury and former North Caulfield and Sandown Lions keeper Capo Chudier. A scoreless first half was followed by a demolition job in the second half with Baxter’s goals coming from Meiklem (2), Vickers and Morgan.

Runners lap it up at the Frankston Gift By Ben Triandafillou MORE than 400 VAL athletes crowded the Frankston Football Oval on Sunday 14 January for the muchanticipated return of the Frankston Gift. The gift which hadn’t been run for more than six years went off “without a hitch” and was well supported by local runners and little athletes. Frankston Athletic Club president

Andrew Wells said about 80 runners from the Frankston Athletic Club and Little Athletics Centre competed at the gift with everyone enjoying having the gift back at the Frankston Oval. “It was a fantastic day with quite a good number there and the weather was kind to us,” Wells said. “Having the gift back at the Frankston Football Oval with the old grandstand and the podium in the

background made it sort of feel like the big gift they have at Stawell. “It was good to have it back in Frankston. All of the sponsors were happy with the day and a lot of them are now on our backs to make sure we get our next one up and running.” Harrison Kerr added his name to the Men’s 70m Gift winners list with a raw time of 7.554 seconds defeating Tim Rooke in the final.

defeated Stephanie Jinks in a raw time of 8.495 seconds. In the first running of the sporting clubs relay, the Frankston Dolphins narrowly defeated the Peninsula Strikers women while the Victorian Police Force celebrated their victory in the Emergency Services relay. When it came to highlights from the day, Wells said most of the 70m races were very close finishes but it was towards the end of the day when

the backmarker, Jesse Dunsmore, in the two mile event came from last to finish up winning by about a quarter of the track. Australian 400m sprinter, Morgan Mitchell, also made an appearance at the gift signing little athlete’s caps as well as attending a luncheon. Dunkley MP Chris Crewther also attended the event to show his support for having the Ggift back in Frankston.
