Students’ creativity on display A PENINSULA Teenage Art and Fashion Exhibition at Dromana Secondary College this week attracted a record number of garments designed and produced by students. Parents and Friends Association president Natalie Derri, who organised the Monday 21 October event, said: “We had entries from Toorak College, Padua, Rosebud Secondary College, Elisabeth Murdoch and, of course, Dromana College students. “Four esteemed fashion designers critiqued the students’ creations last Sunday and prizes were awarded at the exhibition. “It was an amazing event with the VCAL students also supplying the catering on the night.”

Owner’s DIY plan for ‘Conti’ project Stephen Taylor steve@mpnews.com.au AFTER the failure of two financial deals the owner of Sorrento’s Continental Hotel Julian Gerner says he will redevelop the 1875 limestone icon on his own. Mr Gerner late last week said he had “secured the future” of the Sorrento landmark by retaining ownership “after a period of commercial complexity and a series of unforeseen circumstances”. His decision follows the collapse in may of then-partners the Stellar Property Group and the failing of a sale to

LBA Capital. “I have negotiated an agreement to deliver on the vision to restore, renovate, protect and preserve the 1875 ‘Marvellous Melbourne’ hotel for the Sorrento community, all Victorians, interstate and overseas tourists for generations to come,” Mr Gerner said in a statement issued by Royce Communications on Thursday headed “Julian Gerner secures Hotel Continental future”. Mr Gerner says his new ownership entity, The Ocean Amphitheatre Company, honours the “father of Sorrento” George Coppin, who built the Continental. To secure funding for what is now a

$100 million project, Mr Gerner said he was finalising a “comprehensive and compelling investment information memorandum” and was “confident that [the] required funding will be secured imminently”. Despite putting the pub back on the market in 2017, after “coming to the conclusion that [its redevelopment] is too big to handle alone”, Mr Gerner is confident this time around the project is now “more advanced; more resolved and a much more valuable proposition”. He said Heritage Victoria and the Mornington Peninsula Shire are “supportive” of his plans. “Required maintenance work is on-

going and an ‘army’ of consultants are working tirelessly, targeting a recommencement of construction post-Australia Day, 2020,” Mr Gerner said. He said the development now included a “world class hotel resort as well as car parking, commercial office and a staff accommodation facility at a projected cost of $100 million”. Previously tagged at $80 million, he said the extra cost had come about through the acquisition of an adjacent property in 12 Riley Lane with a “series of pending and new planning applications to be consolidated on the site of more than 1.5 acres on Constitution Hill”. The launching of “new planning

applications” may sound alarm bells with council and the Nepean Conservation Group, which opposed the height of a proposed seven-storey apartment complex at the rear and deplored the council’s handling of the sale of public land for a car park for $1.8 million. (“Hotel’s VCAT victory” The News 27/2/17). Mr Gerner said last week the excavation of 18.5 metres at the rear of the site would be extended to allow for more car parking and a wellness centre. He said the project would create 200 permanent jobs and generate a “major economic impact on the town and the greater Mornington Peninsula”.

Green wedge rate row still boiling along THE recently introduced Rural Living Rate was a hot topic at last week’s Red Hill Community Association annual meeting. The new category has added an extra 20 per cent (up to $1000) to the rate bills of about 700 properties of between 0.4-2 hectares in the green wedge. About 40 residents turned up at Red Hill Mechanics Hall to voice their concerns to Mornington Peninsula Shire mayor Cr David Gill and CEO John Baker, Saturday 12 October. The residents claim the new rate is “unfair and discriminatory”. They say the council should devise policies to survey, audit, interview and assess all properties in the green wedge, then implement a balanced approach with the rating system taking account of their individual levels of contribution to the green wedge. Resident Sandra Miller said the green wedge benefited all ratepayers and visitors so “we should be treated equally”. The new rate was adopted unanimously by

the council. Justifying its imposition the shire’s chief financial officer Bulent Oz said earlier: “The [smaller property owners] gain greater value than the general ratepayer from programs and policies which protect the green wedge and their rural residential amenity” and therefore should pay more for the privilege of living there. Cr Gill said the new differential rate meant that if one rate increases, others must reduce. He said the extra money raised from the landowners within the green wedge had helped reduce all other rates, keeping the budget inside the state government’s Fair Go on Rates cap of 2.5 per cent. Those affected by the Rural Living Rate can make a pre-budget submission at mornpen. vic.gov.au/budget until 14 November. Riled by the rate: Residents Robert Clark, Shelley Eastwood, Peter Shaw, Sandra Miller and Paul Whitaker at Red Hill Mechanics Hall. Picture: Supplied

Taxpayer group opposes ban on plastic bags Keith Platt keith@mpnews.com.au

Artist’s exploration of different mediums CAPE Schanck-based artist Di Crawford has explored many mediums in her career. Works from her “early days” with colourful silk threads to acrylics on paper and canvas to her latest painted mannequins are being shown to the public in her studio until Sunday 27 October. The works are part of her 12th solo exhibition and visitors (including children) are invited to explore the property which adjoins Mornington Peninsula National Park. Some of the proceeds from sales will towards drought relief for farmers. Di Crawford’s exhibition is open 10am5pm daily until Sunday 27 October (opening at midday Saturday) at 360 Rogers Road, Cape Schanck, call 0412 026 123.

A PLAN to ban plastic bags on the Mornington Peninsula is likely to run foul of the Australian Taxpayers’ Alliance. The ATA, which claims to represent all taxpayers, said banning plastic bags “would hurt both small businesses and the environment”. Mornington Peninsula Shire councillors have given the go ahead for $165,000 to be spent on the first stage of a program designed to wipe out single use plastic items, including plastic bags (“Shire plans to ban plastics” The News 16/10/19). The mayor Cr David Gill told The News that councillors wanted the ban “done quicker” than the two years suggested by shire officers. He said councillors were “very intent on doing it right” and believed tighter deadlines should apply to ending the use of single use plastic items by the shire “to show people we’re serious”. Waste services team leader Daniel Hinson told councillors in a report that there was no precedent of a successful shire wide ban in Australia “given the requirement for changes to the local by-laws and potential concern from traders who may not support the ban and may request com-

pensation for lost business”. The ATA would back the traders’ claims. The advocacy group’s communications manager Emilie Dye said producing reinforced bags or “totes” would be an added cost to small grocers who “already have it hard enough competing with Coles and Woolworths”. “While corporate supermarkets virtue signal that they care about the environment, they care about profits more,” she said. “To make things worse, plastic bag bans fail in their core mission. Unless you use your tote 7100 times before buying a new one you are causing more harm to the environment than if you chose to use traditional plastic bags. “It is ridiculous to assume households do not reuse traditional plastic bags. Because of the plastic bag shortage, people now must purchase bags for the sole purpose of picking up dog poop, lining small trash bins, and any number of other everyday chores.” The list of single use plastics facing a ban in the shire includes balloons, water or beverage containers, coffee cups and lids, straws, bags, plates and cutlery, takeaway food containers and promotional items. “Whether it is a plastic bag ban or an attack on plastic straws, environmental regulation tends to backfire,” Ms Dye said.

NEWS DESK Peer support VOLUNTEER drivers and exercise buddies are being sought by the Bolton Clarke Research Institute to assist older women living alone. They would become part of a peer support program for women aged 55-plus. Bolton Clarke and Uniting VicTas are trialling the support service in the Rosebud area. Organiser Rajna Ogrin said research showed older women faced greater social and financial disadvantage than men, leading to poorer physical, mental and social wellbeing. The service, funded by the Alfred Felton Bequest, builds on previous work by the Bolton Clarke Research Institute looking at the barriers facing older women in accessing services to maintain their independence and optimising their wellbeing. “The drivers and exercise buddies were identified among 10 ‘priority supports’ the women thought would fill gaps in their lives, and we’ve worked together to develop these services,” Ms Ogrin said. Women aged over 55 in the Rosebud area, who live alone or are interested in volunteering, can call Maja Green 0447 375 580 or email mgreen2@boltonclarke.com.au or Rajna Ogrin 0400 253 459 or email rogrin@boltonclarke.com.au

Romp around the circular bed SOUTHERN Peninsula Players’ latest production is set in an elegant top floor London flat in the 1970s. Move Over Mrs Markham at Rosebud Memorial Hall is described as a hilarious play about misunderstandings, mix ups and mistaken identities. It revolves around respected, straight-laced – and happily married – Philip and Joana Markham. Farce descends when Mr Markham’s business partner, Henry, also married, convinces him to let him use the flat one night to enjoy a tryst with his latest conquest. Meanwhile, Henry’s wife, Linda – who knows all about his affairs – decides to have a fling herself. At the same time Alistair Spenlow, an interior decorator for the Markhams, also wants a fling with Sylvie, their au pair. “They all want to test out the round bed – in short, it

Radio plays tune into history THE first 164 years of European settlement on the Mornington Peninsula had no shortage of dramas and historical events. History was recorded in books and diaries, then newspapers, photographs and eventually by radio and television. These days, events that make their way onto the internet will also become part of a history. Over the past four weeks Mornington-based radio station RPP FM (98.7) has been broadcasting a 10-part dramatised Time Capsules series on radio and as a podcast. The radio plays are being be aired at midday

every Wednesday for 10 weeks. “While listening to Time Capsules, an in-house created series, starring local actors, you will find yourself being swept away on a time traveller’s journey while enjoying re-created local history,” producer Heather ForbesMcKeon said. “The plays feature haunting reenactments of local adventure, misadventure, loss and action involving the human spirit overcoming adversity.” The episodes include the mystery surrounding the 1967 disappearance near Portsea of then prime minister Harold Holt's, the drowning off Mt

Eliza of Mornington footballers sailing home after a game at Mordialloc, a 1939 heatwave and bushfire, and the first allied shots in both World War I and World War II being fired from Point Nepean. The stories are written and directed by Steve Wheat and sound engineered by Steve Meyers. John Annable created the original theme sound track, and designed the sound effects. Credits are read by Pixie Jones. To tune in go to 98.7 FM every Wednesday at midday or to tune into the free podcasts go to rppv.com.au/ podcasts-home.html.

COMPLAINTS about a so-called “party house” at Sorrento have led to the property owner being fined $1500. In December 2018 neighbours called police about noise and loud music being played at the house until 3am. The owners of the house were prosecuted and fined under Mornington Peninsula Shire’s Short Stay Rental Accommodation Local Law. The shire says it has a “zero-tolerance approach to party houses”. The shire’s local law is the first of its kind in the state and includes a requirement that property owners nominate an agent who must respond within two hours to complaints from neighbours. The mayor Cr David Gill described the prosecution as “an important win for council and for the local residents”. “The purpose of the local law is to address the impacts of anti-social behaviour on the local community from occupants of short stay rental accommodation across the peninsula,” he said. “There has been a substantial increase in the use of this type of accommodation for large parties. “The local law holds the accommodation owner responsible for the behaviour of their guests. These businesses operate in our residential neighbourhoods and anti-social and rowdy behaviour is not acceptable. “Council takes this kind of act very seriously and will deal with property owners failing to comply with the

Short Stay Rental Accommodation Local Law.” Problems reported due to short stay accommodation in residential areas have included anti-social behaviour of occupants, use of outdoor areas late into the night, car parking congestion and poor rubbish disposal. The local law is used in conjunction with the Environment Protection Act 1970, Public Health and Wellbeing Act 2008 and the Planning and Environment Act 1987.

Car vandals VANDALS scratched large ‘X’ marks on various panels of eight cars and a coffee trailer at Mornington, overnight Saturday 12 October. Senior Constable Meg Morgan, of Mornington police, said residents in the Nepean Place, Fulton Avenue and Strachans Road area reported the criminal damage the following day. In other incidents, six cars had their tyres slashed at Mt Martha, 28 September-3 October. The cars were parked near Dominion Road, Glenisla Drive, Ferne Place and Marguerita Avenue. Between 15-18 October, police received three reports of tyre slashing to two cars and one trailer in Hyperno Way and Ramsay Court, Mt Martha.

Peninsula brewers’ toast to a foamy future BREWERIES across the Mornington Peninsula have joined forces to cheer on the independent beer industry – and its contribution to the community and local economy. With national beer sales in decline, they see independent craft beer as the category’s shining light as it now accounts for 10 per cent of the beer market by dollar value. On average, small brewers employ 30 people for every one million litres of beer brewed. Large industrialised brewers employ two full-time equivalent workers for the same volume, they say. The eight breweries on the peninsula are taking on the beer giants with most staff living within a 20-kilometre radius of their headquarters. “Red Hill Brewery and Mornington Peninsula Brewery carved the way for independent beer producers in a region known for its wine and cider, and now the peninsula is becoming a hot bed for distillers too,” says Richard Jeffares, who opened TWØBAYS Brewing Co in December. “The venues and bottle shops that support us by selling our beer are also essential to the independent liquor industry and the local economy.” The peninsula’s Dainton Beer, Hickinbotham of Dromana (HIX Beer), Jetty Road Brewery, Mornington Peninsula Brewery, Red Hill Brewery, Smart Brothers Brewing, St Andrews Beach Brewery and TWØBAYS Brewing Co are supporting the inaugural Indie Beer Day organised by the Independent Brewers Association. They are asking beer drinkers to say “cheers” at 2pm, Saturday 26 October, while joining a synchronised toast to local beer and the whole craft beer industry across Australia. “Indie Beer Day is about stopping to pause and celebrate our growing role in the community and to share it with all Australian beer drinkers,” IBA chair Jamie Cook said. “On Indie Beer Day we want to rally all independent breweries and beer retailers behind the shared objective of building a community around Australian independent beer.” TWØBAYS Brewing marketer Tom Pountney said independent breweries generated more than $950 million in economic output last year, with brewers paying more than $130 million in excise tax and $215 million in wages.

Concrete dumper set on avoiding tip fees BUILDERS and plumbers across the Mornington Peninsula are being asked to help track down a serial concrete dumper. The dumper has left at least eight solid clues on peninsula roadsides. Authorities believe the concrete is most likely leftovers from a building foundation pour and is being dumped to avoid tipping costs. It is believed a skip bin truck, possibly an Isuzu or Mitsubishi with green writing on the door, may be involved. The Environment Protection Authority Victoria (EPA), Victorian Building Authority (VBA) and Mornington Peninsula Shire Council have joined forces to “bring a serial concrete dumper to justice”. At least eight incidents of roadside dumping at sites from Pearcedale to Cape Schanck have been reported to the shire. As the concrete is suspected of having come from a construction site, the VBA is contacting all registered builders and plumbers on the peninsula to help track the culprit. The mayor Cr David Gill said dumped waste poses a serious threat to wildlife and can lead to contamination of land, waterways and groundwater. “Council spends more than $700,000 a year cleaning up the mess left behind by illegally dumped waste, collecting 4518 individual cases of illegal dumping in the past 12 months,” he said. “Hardworking ratepayer’s money could be put to much better use in our community.” EPA south metro regional manager Marlene Mathias said tracking down the concrete dumper was an example

of how regulators and councils work together to combat “difficult waste crime activity”. “Dumping construction waste in this way is done for profit. It’s cheaper to leave the problem for others to manage than deal with it the right way,” she said. “It will be the Mornington Peninsula community that carries the

When art means life A VISUAL artist based on the Mornington Peninsula who has experienced several chronic illnesses, including being diagnosed as being bipolar last year, says she expresses herself, her body and her mind through her art. Specialising in oil painting, Emma Holt, right, said that at just 20 her life experiences had a major impact on who she was as an artist. “At the age of nine l began my first art class,” she said. “I was home schooled from the age of 14 due to health issues. “Then, at 16, I studied visual arts for two years, despite the world telling me I should go back to school. I found the more I learned about art, the more my style changed and the more comfortable I felt with exploring different aspects of art. “I tell people who ask that art has saved me.” Holt said that having “been through many health issues and continuing to live with them, having a way to escape feels essential”. “I use art as an expression of everything I’m going through as a way to let it all out to the world,” she said. “I do my art for myself, but it is a privilege to have the opportunity to share it with others. “I hope that by showing a part of myself, you will see beyond the mask I feel we all wear some time during our lives. “I hope you learn through my art that it’s ok to speak up and say what you have or are going through and I hope by sharing my story through the canvas, you will not be scared to share your own. “Any health issue, physical or mental (and I have been through both) is worth speaking up about.” The opening to Holt’s first solo exhibition Welcome To My Brain is at 6pm, Friday 1 November and will open 11am-3pm daily until Thursday 7 November at The Nook Gallery & Studios, 18 Progress Street, Mornington. Entry is free. Visit the-nook. com.au/events/2019/7/5/exhibition-emma-holt

Tips online for ‘healthy headspace’ Keith Platt keith@mpnews.com.au

Hillview Quarries AD.pdf

FLINDERS MP Greg Hunt says young people can “help build and maintain a healthy headspace” by talking and sharing ideas with family and friends. “About 560,000 Australian children and adolescents are estimated to have a mental illness and one in four young Australians aged 16 to 24 experiences mental illness in any given year,” Mr Hunt, who is also the health minister, said. “Young people need to look after their mental health and wellbeing on an ongoing basis, and headspace National Youth Mental Health Foundation has released wellbeing kits, with seven tips for a healthy headspace.” He said the federal government was committed to giving young people access to services to help reduce the duration and impact of mental illness. This included $1.5 million towards Mornington Peninsula Shire’s Southern Youth Hub and $1.5 million for headspace “satellite services” at Hastings and Rosebud. Kids Helpline says mental health issues and thoughts of suicide accounted for 59 per cent of all contacts made last year by children and young people. Kids Helpline is 80 per cent financed by the yourtown Art Union, donations and corporate support. Federal and state governments contribute 20 per cent. “Each year we see an increase in 18/10/19 2:30 pm mental health, emotional well-being

HEALTH Minister and Flinders MP Greg Hunt with the headspace youth reference committee at Frankston. Picture: Supplied and suicide-related concerns, they now account for 59.2 per cent or 39,812 of all counselling contacts,” yourtown CEO Tracy Adams said “Our concern is that this may be just the tip of the iceberg as only a small percentage of kids actually seek help. We really need to encourage more help-seeking among children and young people, particularly among boys.” Australian Bureau of Statistics data show that 458 people under 25 committed suicide in Australia last year; 22 of them were 14 or younger. “What is particularly concerning is the rapid increase in the suicide rate for young people,” Ms Adams said.

“Over the past 10 years the overall suicide rate has increased by approximately 13 per cent, but the suicide rate for young people aged 15 to 19 has increased by more than 70 per cent. “Ten years ago, children and teenagers had the lowest suicide rate of any age group.” National Mental Health Commission ABS data shows 600,000 Australian children aged four to 17 are affected by a mental health problem each year. “One in four people aged 16 to 24 experiences some form of mental illness each year and three-quarters of all mental illness manifests in people

under the age of 25,” Ms Adams sais. “But there’s still a lot of stigma and confusion around the topic, young people are feeling isolated, alienated and extremely sad, that’s where early intervention and accessing crucial help 24/7 with trained counsellors at no cost can help.” Ms Adams said it was a positive sign that many young people were seeking help to manage mental health issues. If young people want to talk to someone they can call Kids Helpline any time on 1800 551 800 or go to www.kidshelpline.com.au or for seven tips for a healthy headspace go to www.headspace.org.au

Public input to ‘climate emergency’ plan Keith Platt keith@mpnews.com.au MORNINGTON Peninsula residents are being asked to contribute ideas towards a climate emergency plan. “Key areas” already identified include energy transition; zero emissions from transport; having a circular, no-waste economy; and, sustainable farming. The call for input into an emergency plan follows the decision in August by Mornington Peninsula Shire Council to declare a climate emergency. In doing so, the shire joined 840 other local governments across 18 countries in recognising threat of climate change and the changes it was already causing to economies and environments (“Peninsula declares ‘climate emergency’” The News 13/8/19). The Australian parliament last week received a 370,000-signature petition calling on the government to declare a climate emergency. The petition calls for the House of Representatives to "immediately act and declare a climate emergency in Australia" and to "introduce legislation that will with immediacy and haste reduce the causes of anthropogenic climate change". The petition stated that "the overwhelming majority of climate scientists around the world have concluded that the climate is changing at unprecedented rates due to anthropogenic causes”. However, the government has

already rejected a call from Greens MP Adam Brandt to declare a climate emergency, which Energy and Emissions Reduction Minister Angus Taylor described at the time as an "absolutely empty gesture". Peninsula councillors, who unanimously voted to declare a climate emergency, expect to see a draft emergency plan by February 2020 to go on public exhibition in May 2020. Other “key areas” for a climate

emergency plan listed, but not explained, by the shire are “natural environment and sequestration; resilient Mornington Peninsula; and, climate emergency mobilisation and leadership”. Community input, feedback and ideas for the plan can be made through an online survey, by email or post. The shire says the climate emergency “is a resolution for immediate and

urgent action to reverse global warming. It is an unequivocal statement that it is the responsibility of every level of government, every community and business, and every person to reduce emissions and mitigate the effects of climate change and plan to adapt to the changes that cannot be avoided”. The mayor David Gill said the climate emergency declaration will be backed by action and “real outcomes” peninsula residents.

“This declaration is not just lip service, council will develop a meaningful climate emergency plan to guide the climate emergency response,” Cr Gill said. “Communities around the globe are taking action on this serious issue and we aren’t shying away from the responsibility we have as community leaders. “We need all levels of government to act and, as the conduit between local community and government, we’re making sure the peninsula’s message is heard all the way to the top. “We’re calling on the community to provide input, feedback and ideas that will help develop the plan, which will include a range of climate change actions to guide all shire operations as well as advocating to state and federal government and supporting community action.” Details: mornpen.vic.gov.au/climateemergency The climate emergency survey is at mornpen.vic.gov.au/haveyoursay; email submissions to: haveyoursay@ mornpen.vic.gov.au; or post to: Climate Change, Energy and Water, Climate Emergency Plan, Mornington Peninsula Shire, Private Bag 1000, Rosebud 3939 Community consultation closes 5pm 3 November.

Most Tyabb residents want ‘restricted’ airfield to continue The people who are displaying blue and white signs which say “Tyabb Airfield – No Expansion – Limit Noise” support the continued operation of the airfield (“Signs show a town divided” The News 25/9/19). As a matter of fact, 99 per cent of Tyabb residents support the continued operation of the airfield. I know because I conducted a survey of 827 (32 per cent) adult Tyabb residents between April and October 2018, on issues about Tyabb Airfield. That survey showed 90 per cent of Tyabb adults want further restrictions on the airfield (such as a curfew at night); 10 per cent want no further restrictions. The issue in Tyabb is not about support or non-support for the airfield, the issue is about the conditions under which the airfield should operate and the effect on the amenity and safety of residents. The other signs say “Community of Tyabb in Support of the Peninsula Aero Club”, and one might assume that the residents with these signs have read these words and some of them are happy to trust the future decisions of the PAC to look after the amenity and the safety concerns of the residents. They are entitled to have this opinion. I, and evidently the vast majority of Tyabb residents, do not. One thing that is good about the PAC supporter signs is the label “Tyabb Airfield” rather than the “Mornington Peninsula Airport” title the PAC has consistently used for a long time now, and is still on the property. I hope this is a change PAC will adopt and future airfield operations align with this title. Brewis Atkinson, Tyabb

Misplaced trees As a member of a Landcare group on the Mornington Peninsula I was dismayed to read

concerns about the removal of pine and Cypress trees from a bushland remnant currently undergoing restoration thanks to the excellent work of the South West Peninsula Landcare Group (“Landcare’s loss” Letters 9/10/19). I understand, applaud and respect the love of trees that many people have and the passion with which Patricia Parkinson wants to defend these trees. But the problem is that these trees in this environment are destructive, invasive weeds that kill Mornington Peninsula-specific indigenous flora and create weedy monocultures which are inhospitable to our increasingly rare indigenous fauna. A plant in the wrong place is a weed. These particular trees are in the wrong place. Adrienne Smith, Arthurs Seat

Successful polluters No matter which political party is in power they basically think that most people are as dumb as doorknobs so they can spin whatever they want however they want. And, unfortunately, they are right, as most would not waste a quark of brain power to investigate their spin. Take the [Australia produces] “only 1.5 per cent of world’s CO2 emissions argument” that the government goes on about as being insignificant (but with only 0.3 per cent of the population). Overall, Australia is the 16th largest emitter of CO2 in the world, ranking 10th, higher than any other major western nation, in terms of per capita emissions (15.4 - about 10 times the global average) and also exports 7 per cent of the world’s fossil fuel CO2 potential, which makes our contribution to CO2 emmissions 8.5 per cent. China on the other hand produces only 7.5 per cent per capita and is ranked at 47th. India

LETTER writer Brewis Atkinson says the Mornington Peninsula Airport sign should be replaced with one saying Tyabb airfield. Mornington Peninsula Shire refers to the airfield as the Tyabb authorised landing ground. Picture: Gary Sissons

That’s entertainment Anything is better than repeats of Midsomer Murders. Thankfully our interests – entertainment - is front and centre compliments of the Letters page in The News. Last week’s was up there as a classic, in comedy and drama. Not only a letter from the man himself ([Flinders MP] Greg Hunt) but also two people I regard as our very own comedy duo, Michael G Free and Brian A Michelson. It’s more a fascination with how these two gentlemen present their opinions from such a (seemingly) superior point of view. Fair enough, we’re all entitled. As a bonus (from Betty Preston) the vision of John Cain in his togs. I believe Michael and Brian gave Greta Thornburg an undeserved serve. Why? Brian adding “hundreds of scientists” in reference to believing in no climate emergency? Greg is on a winner with all his offerings, particularly in partnership with the state government. Either way he wins, but a hopeful hint of an increase in Newstart was probably too much to hope for. To top it The News spelt Collingwood as Colinwood? My thanks to all contributors. Clifford W Ellen, Rye

Climate of nonsense All I can hear is bla bla bla infinitum when I read the letters of Michael G Free (“Problems being solved”) and Brian A Michelson (“Follow the money”). Go kids, and show these dinosaurs how relevant these climate change deniers are. Then we can get on with meaningful action to save our planet. Rupert Steiner, Balnarring beach

A watery past I agree with comments on Professor Tim Flannery’s failed, to my mind, “alarmist” predictions (“Failed predictions” Letters 8/10/19). As far as I know, his expertise is in paleontology, not weather. He wrote an interesting book on kangaroo species. While currently humans and carbon emissions are the villains (aeroplanes seem to get a pass because we need to use them), who caused the 100 metre rise in sea level some 7000 or more years ago that flooded the Yarra River and its flood plain, creating Port Phillip and isolating Tasmania? The only active humans then were Aborigines in what became the Melbourne area. So, with tongue in cheek, what could they have done to cause the rise? I also note the old villain of the past, El Nino, doesn’t seem to get a mention these days. Keith Murley, Blairgowrie

100 YEARS AGO THIS WEEK...

Councillor Oates injured in riding accident Compiled by Cameron McCullough ON Friday night 17th inst Councillor, W. J. Oates J.P. met with a serious riding accident, in which he sustained a fractured thigh. His condition for several days was serious, but under the care of Dr Maxwell he is said to be progressing favorably, although it will be many weeks before he will be able to get about again. Cr Oates had been attending the usual meeting of the Repatriation Committee at Frankston and was returning home at about 10 o’clock, when the horse he was riding stumbled over a heap of road metal on the pathway, and falling heavily, rolled its rider. For upwards of an hour Cr Oates was lying helpless in the road endeavoring to make cries for help heard. The accident occurred in the vicinity of Mr Ridout’s residence on the Cranbourne Road, and it was her that assistance ultimately came when the sufferer was removed to his home and medical aid summoned. Very great regret has been expressed throughout the whole Shire at Cr Oates’ misfortune and numerous messages of sympathy have reached him. *** CR W. P. Mason last week snatched a brief holiday from the exacting and strenuous duties of his office and spent a few days on a caravan trip to Gippsland. He had a delightful experience, which had one fault, that it did not last long enough. *** MISS Millie McCormack, that young singer of whose vocal ability that audiences have formed such a high

estimate, met with continuous success this week at the South St. Ballarat competitions. For girls aged under 16 (own choice) Miss McCormack received honorable mention; and the champion solo earned second place, being only five points behind the winner out of a large number of entrants. Her success will be met with pleasure by local music ladies who offer congratulations to this promising young artist and her teacher Mrs. McCormack. *** MR L. J. Ward, was sufficiently recovered to leave the “Lancewood” Private Hospital a few days ago to return to his home in Frankston. Mr Ward expects to resume duties at the local Railway Station early next week. *** AFTER a long period of active service during which time he experienced many vicissitudes, being once presumed as missing, Pte. Chas. Brody, son of Mr Mark Brody returned to Frankston on Monday. The flags were flown gaily in his honor and he received a hearty welcome from his many friends. Lieut. Williams who also returned in the same boat will not arrive until later as he was in charge of Tasmanian troops and proceeded with them to the Island State. Lieut. Williams is the son-in-law of Mr Mark Brody. Congenial Mark, always smiling, is now positively beaming. *** MR H. Purdy, who recently purchased the Langwairrin Military Band “Mas-

cot” pony was successful in gaining 3rd honors at the last Melbourne show for ponies 12 to 13 hands. There were nine competitors. *** MR E. Barrett, (secretary of the local Repatriation Committee) wishes to draw the attention of employers that several Returned Soldiers are awaiting employment. Particulars of employment required will be seen in another column. *** ON Friday 31st a social and public meeting under the auspices of the Frankston Protestant Federation, will be held in the Mechanics’ Hall. The usual high class programme of musical items has been arranged and during the evening Mr Briggs, the State organiser, will deliver an address. Attention is directed to the advertised notice appearing in another column. *** THE “final” of the Wattle Club’s euchre tournament took place on Thursday evening. The function proved most enjoyable. The winners were announced as follows – Gents 1st Mr C. Dalman, and Mr. McAfee. Ladies – 1st Mrs Murphy, 2nd Mrs Wood. *** TENDERS are invited for a new State School building at Bittern. Particulars as advertised state that tenders close on 31st November. *** THE Peninsula Motor Garage Coy. advertise particulars of high class motor cars now available for purchase. These are the “Austin” and “Buick” for which they, are the sole, district

agents.

*** ATTENTION is directed to the advertisement in another column announcing that Messrs Croft Bros of Somerville have disposed of their well known business to Messrs Gibbon and Tyree (late A.I.F.). The retiring firm in thanking the public for the support accorded them solicit a continuance of liberal patronage on behalf of their successors. *** MESSRS D. Matthew advertises that the standing crops on “Tuerong Park”, Moorooduc are for Sale by tender. *** ON Friday 31st, the property, stock and household furniture of Mr Humphries on Main Road, Cranbourne to Frankston will be offered at auction by Messrs Adamson Strettle and Co.. Pty. Ltd. Full details are advertised. *** MESSRS Brody and Mason advertise a long list of household furnishings to be offered at auction, at their rooms Frankston, on Friday 31st. The full equipment of the Influenza Hospital will be included in the articles offered. *** THE Frankston branch of the Red Cross Society met on Friday afternoon. Mrs M. R. Deane (president) presiding. The question of continuing the activities of the branch were being discussed as we went to press. A full report will appear next week. *** THE Cornucopia in connection with the Frankston State School was opened

yesterday afternoon (Friday) and was continued at night. The proceedings which passed off very successfully will be fully recorded in next issue. *** THE deplorable accident to Cr Oates brings to mind the recent complaint made by Cr F. H. Wells at the Council table as to the dangerous practice of allowing roads under construction to be left at night without proper protection. Langwarrin residents complain bitterly of the condition of the Cranbourne road, even in daylight and it is to be hoped that action will be taken to effect improvements and assure the safety of travellers. *** Heard in the Train That the Frankston Memorial Hall Fund committee has acquired the building known as the Frankston Club together with the billiard table and other contents. That there is a threatened shortage of oranges and lemons, and fears are expressed that there will be a famine in regard to these fruits before the end of next month. That protests still continue to be made in certain quarters regarding the action of the Federal Government in prohibiting the entry into Australia of sheep dip from abroad, as a protection for the Australian sheep dip industry. That at the quarterly meeting of the Methodist Church circuit, Wangaratta, the question of the proposed union of the churches was discussed. A large majority voted against union. *** FROM the pages of the Mornington Standard, 25 October 1919

THE MEANING OF EXISTENCE... AND OTHER SHORT STORIES

Operation Tiger Town – 2.0 By Stuart McCullough THIS year I was ready. There was no way that I was ever going to allow the ignominy of 2017 to be repeated. Back then, we all banded together to ensure that my nephew Noah – a mad Richmond supporter – got to see his beloved team play in a Grand Final. It was something of a military operation, which is why I dressed in camouflage. The shame of 2017 – such as it was – came when I casually enquired whether my father wanted breakfast. His response of ‘I’ll have bacon and eggs!’ became the litmus test against which my preparedness or otherwise would be judged. It resulted in something of a mad scramble – a turn of phrase that applied equally both to me and to the eggs. Not this time. Striding into my local butcher’s, I demanded one tonne of the finest bacon known to humankind. I stocked up the way people do when they anticipate either a hurricane or a zombie apocalypse. My father promised to supply the eggs, revealing that one of his hens – that, for reasons unknown, he has named ‘Bill Shorten’ – is currently laying up a storm. I was ready. My father is a member of the Melbourne Cricket Club. It means he has about a 50/50 chance of scoring a ticket for the Grand Final. For decades, this wasn’t a problem. However, he has missed out for the last three years in a row. I’m beginning to suspect he may have offended someone. It’s happened before. Usually, it’s the result of a piece of correspondence he’s sent that contains some

Southern Peninsula News

pointed observations. When it comes to dropping truth bombs, my father is a B-52 and has been doing it long since became fashionable. Just ask the Emperor of Japan, who bore the brunt of my father’s concerns about his Nissen E-20. 23 October 2019

It came as no surprise when my father missed out on tickets again. When this happened in 2017, we hatched a plan that involved getting up in the dead of night to go and stand in a queue. This meant Noah, his brother Brodie and his sister,

Matilda, all stayed at our house. It also meant waking Noah up at 2.30 in the morning. We tried to do so in the gentlest way possible, but upon turning on the light, Noah still responded with the kind of alarm and panic associated with being unexpectedly water-boarded. Rather than stand in a line in the middle of the night, this time they were arriving at about six o’clock in the morning. Six o’clock in the morning is what my father used to describe as ‘practically the middle of the day’. Apparently, with GWS being GWS, the fear of missing out was greatly reduced. Tickets were successfully acquired in record time. I, too, had been up for hours, preparing breakfast. I’m not used to cooking for large numbers of people. Given the quantities involved, I cooked a lot of stuff and left it in the oven to keep warm. When the hoards descended, my father produced a carton of fresh-laid eggs. Several of the eggs were cracked, their contents oozing through the seams of the fractures. He suggested it would be best to eat them first. This, I thought, would be inviting trouble if not lysteria, so I quietly put them to one side. There were some issues that required negotiations. Only Noah supports Richmond. My father, on the other hand, is a great one for leaving early. Ostensibly, this is to get ahead of traffic, even when he’s catching the train. Indeed, it’s not uncommon to be mid-sentence with my father, only to turn around and spot him out the window starting his car. Beating

the traffic is a core value. Noah wants to stay to the very end. My father wants to leave as soon as ‘Tones and I’ have sound-checked. It’s a difficult to see how two such different approaches can be reconciled. Luckily, my brother volunteered to stay with Noah as long as he liked, to avoid a sixteen year old being abandoned at the football. Those who had tickets headed back, whilst the rest of us settled in. The game wasn’t much of a game unless, of course, you’re a Richmond supporter in which case it was a joy from start to finish. Just as the game was coming to an end, there was a knock at the front door. I opened it to find my brother and father standing there, without my nephew Noah. ‘Traffic’ they said in unison. Noah, I’m happy to say, stayed as long as he wanted. When he returned to our house, he walked a little taller – which is saying something given that a teenage growth spurt means he’s currently hurtling towards the six-foot mark – and there was a definite spring in his step. It made him happy. Which, in turn, made me happy. It was nice to be a very small part in his very exciting day. It’s good to be passionate about something. Whether it’s football or beating the traffic – everyone needs something to believe in. My nephew will, of course, be deeply satisfied at this momentous achievement. Until next year, of course. But next year can wait. stuart@stuartmccullough.com

Rosebud set a mammoth total and Carrum Downs poised for victory By Brodie Cowburn

PENINSULA

MAIN Ridge had a good day in their first two day outing of the season, bowling out Pearcedale without much trouble. Pearcedale were sent in to bat first at Ditterich Reserve, and struggled badly. After not finding much luck with the bat early, a complete tail order collapse saw Pearcedale bowled out for 87. Each of Pearcedale’s bottom three batsmen were dismissed for a duck. Main Ridge were able to bat 18 overs before stumps for the day, and ended up at 1/59. Michael Holmes impressed for Main Ridge, and ended up at 40 not out. Red Hill played well through a rain interrupted day against Somerville, managing to put 168 runs on the board before the close of play. Luke Jackson was the best performer for the Hillmen, scoring 61 before being caught and bowled by James Tierney. Pearcedale bowler Tierney posted impressive figures of 3/39 off his 20 overs. A half century from Aaron Paxton helped Long Island to a decent score against Heatherhill. Rain cut the day down to 40 overs, but Long Island didn’t waste time with bat in hand. They ended up at

3/136 at stumps. Moorooduc performed well at home against Pines, batting for the whole day and setting their opponents a first innings target of 179 to chase down.

DISTRICT

A STUNNING century from Billy Quigley has helped Rosebud set a mammoth total against Mt Martha at Olympic Park. Quigley scored 118 runs, and formed a massive partnership with Ryan Godwin. The pair scored 135 runs between them. On day two, Mt Martha will have to score 254 runs to get a result. Dromana also had a great day at home against Carrum, setting 219 runs for victory. Opener Adam Ciavarella and Ben Brittian each notched up half centuries for Dromana. Carrum bowler Shaun Foster took seven wickets but was expensive. A half century from opening batsman Jonathan Guthrie has helped Delacombe Park to a defendable total of 190 in the first day of their clash against the Seaford Tigers. Bowler Max Watters caused headaches for Delacombe Park batsman, as he took four wickets. Ashley Mills had a busy day in the field, and took three catches. 23 October 2019

Crib Point had trouble against Hastings on Saturday, and ended up all out for 138. Bowler Luke Hewitt was impressive for Hastings, posting eight maidens from his 14 overs. His economical bowling performance helped restrict Crib Point’s final total. Hastings came in to bat for 14 overs before the close of play, and ended up at 0/44, in the box seat for a win on day two.

SUB DISTRICT

CARRUM Downs are inches away from wrapping up an impressive win over Rye in their first two day clash of the season. Rye elected to bat first, but the decision didn’t pay off. They put just 99 runs on the board before being bowled out. Shane Smith was a busy man for Carrum Downs, bowling just under 27 overs. He ended up with stunning figures of 7/38, including 11 maidens. Carrum Downs stumbled out of the gates in their run chase and ended up at 2/18. They quickly corrected course though, and ended up in a strong position to finish the day. They need just nine more runs to grab the win on day two with seven wickets in hand. It was the Dil Pageni show at Peninsula Reserve on Saturday, as the Sea-

ford batsman posted a rapid century on a rain interrupted day of play. Pageni scored 102 runs to help his side to a total of 0/124 at stumps. At Bunguyan Reserve, Ballam Park had a good day against Tyabb. Ballam Park were sent into bat first and did well. They were bowled out for 195 runs. A half century from opener Jay Yates proved important. Tyabb managed to bat 11 overs before stumps, and made a decent dent in Ballam Park’s total. They finished they day at 0/34, in a good position to mount a competitive run chase this weekend. Balnarring were dominant at home against Skye, all but securing a win after the first day of play. Balnarring declared at 4/320. Batsman Tom Hilet scored 163 runs, the best knock of his career. Skye batted 13 overs before stumps and closed the day at 2/10, a long way from victory. Boneo chose to bat first at home in their clash against Tootgarook, and ended up at 9/142 at stumps. Bowler Jacob long took a five wicket haul for Tootgarook.

PROVINCIAL

DESPITE a tail order collapse, Mornington set a tough target for Flinders to chase down in the first day of their

two day contest. Mornington were setting a good pace, and looked in a brilliant position at 5/172. They ended up all out for 206, failing to go on to set a massive total but still in a good position to win. Zac Garnet top scored for the Bulldogs, scoring 47 runs. Flinders batted for 10 overs before stumps, and will start on day two from 2/38. An impressive innings of 78 from opener Tom Hussey has put Langwarrin in a decent position against Sorrento at David Macfarlane Reserve. Langwarrin ended the day at 8/170. Sorrento bowler Jake Wood played an important part for the Sharks, posting figures of 4/31. Wood bowled nine maidens for the day to help restrict Langwarrin’s total from becoming anything too difficult to chase down on day two. Bad weather restricted play against Peninsula OB and Mt Eliza to just 35 overs for the day. Old Boys chose to bat first, and put 3/102 on the board in tough conditions. Tom Baron took all three wickets for Mt Eliza. Baden Powell took on Baxter at home and chose to bat first. At stumps the scoreboard read 6/115.

Mornington wants Radojicic SOCCER

By Craig MacKenzie MORNINGTON has joined the chase to sign gun forward Dejan Radojicic from Casey Comets. He has been targeted by Mornington head coach Adam Jamieson who sees Radojicic as the man who could become part of the most lethal strike force in State 1 next season. Radojicic was Comets’ leading scorer last season and rumours of turmoil at Comets Stadium are circulating freely along with suggestions of a high player turnover. English striker Josh Hine recently agreed terms for a second season at Dallas Brooks Park while Scottish striker Liam Baxter agreed terms last week despite being linked with newly promoted NPL1 outfit Eastern Lions. Baxter was one of Mornington’s visa players last season but he is expected to be granted residency early next year freeing up another visa spot. Jamieson has also bolstered his defence with the signing of former Melbourne Victory teenager Reece Caldecourt who hasn’t played for the past few seasons. Caldecourt, 22, is a former Box Hill United, Casey Comets and Nunawading City junior. “I’d been playing since I was three and I got a little bit burnt out plus my job (at NAB) was taking up a lot of my time so I decided to concentrate on my professional career,” Caldecourt said. “I think I’ve had enough time off now and from what Adam (Jamieson) told me I think we’ll have a good shot at going for promotion next season. “I just got back from a holiday in England and Ireland and we agreed terms last week so I’m really looking forward to getting back into it.” Caldecourt’s preferred position is in central defence but he also presents Jamieson with a full back option. Attacking midfielder Sammy Orritt is expected to trial with Langwarrin. Orritt is a predominantly left-footed player who may fill the gap left by David Stirton’s departure. He has spoken to Langy head coach Scott Miller and his assistant Jamie Skelly and he’s keen to start training at Lawton Park in early November. Last week Langwarrin announced that it had become the first NPL club in Victoria to be given a five-star ranking by Football Federation Australia under its National Club Development Program. Langy is the first club on the peninsula, the second club in Victoria and the third club nationwide to be awarded the national body’s top ranking.

The national program is an online development platform that allows clubs to answer a series of questions relating to various aspects of their football involvement including governance and capacity, female participation, inclusive participation, facilities, meeting demand, community citizenship and football experience. In player news Thomas Ahmadzai has ended his second spell with Langwarrin. Ahmadzai and Langwarrin never entered into negotiations for next season as the Brunswick-based midfielder is deciding whether or not to join a club closer to home or stop playing. Langy has agreed terms with Callum and Luke Goulding and former Melbourne City teenage defender Lucas Portelli. Mornington spoke to both Ahmadzai and Luke Goulding but they rejected overtures from the Dallas Brooks Park outfit. Attacking midfielder Jordan Templin has been rumoured to be heading overseas but Dandenong Thunder is keen on the former Malvern City and Bulleen player. There’s now doubt about the status of veteran Boris Ovcin who assumed that he was no longer required and had re-

tired. There’s no official word from Langy to that effect so Ovcin could still pull on the boots next season. Langwarrin last week appointed Mark Negritas as its NPL under-18s coach. Negritas had been coaching the Metro under-20s at Casey Comets winning the title in 2018 and coming runner-up this year. Just a few weeks after being named 2019 Ben Caffrey Award winner as Langy’s best NPL junior Taylan Unal has left the club and joined Eastern Lions under-18s. Unal easily won the league top scorer award with 44 goals this year as his team won the NPL under-15s championship. In NPLW news Football Victoria announced last week that it had created a second division in the elite women’s competition. The federation polled member clubs about the timing of the introduction of this new league which kicks off next year and will comprise Boroondara Eagles, Casey Comets FC, Eltham Redbacks, Galaxy United, Melbourne Knights, Melbourne Uni, Preston Lions, South Yarra, Southern United and Whitehorse United. FV also released the 2020 competi-

tions calendar and next year’s league season for NPL2, NPLW and State League competitions kicks off on the weekend of 22 March. The Dockerty Cup gets underway in February. In State 2 news Peninsula Strikers teenager Jai Power will trial with Dandenong Thunder’s under-20s next month. Strikers president Adrian Scialpi and new senior coach Paul Williams were both supportive of Power having an NPL try-out. “I’ve known Jai since he was a kid and he’s a wonderful young man and a wonderful player,” Scialpi said. “I’ve told him to put his best foot forward because he deserves a chance at that level and he knows that the door at this club will always be open for him.” Strikers arranged a barbeque yesterday (Monday) at Centenary Park for players and coaching staff to discuss plans for next season in an informal setting. Some player departures are assured and it seems certain that midfielder Grant Lane has worn Strikers colours for the last time while fellow midfielders Danny Brooks and Jordan (Kaka) Avraham have been rumoured to also be

on the move. Brooks and “Kaka” look set to trial with Langwarrin next month. Towering defender Michael Hoogendyk could switch to State 2 rival Berwick City to link up with former teammates Kris and Paul McEvoy. Strikers have been forced into a coaching change at NPL under-14 level. Former Springvale White Eagles junior coach Sasa Djurovic had been appointed in September but has been forced to resign after Melbourne Victory offered a spot in its junior program to his son Nikola. That entails travelling back and forth to training and matchdays four times a week which made it impossible for the coach to honour his commitment to Strikers. The club hopes to interview candidates for the vacant position this week. In State 3 news Frankston Pines is considering striking up a partnership agreement with the Victorian Multicultural Sports Association, a Fijian community group keen to get involved in local soccer. There have been three meetings and a number of phone conversations so far to discuss what each party has to offer and Pines head coach Kevin “Squizzy” Taylor is upbeat about the prospects of forming a partnership. “They are looking to get involved with us and throw their support behind us and there also is the prospect of bringing players here from Fiji while we supply coaches to go to Fiji and conduct clinics,” Taylor said. “They run lots of programs here primarily in schools and we’ll be able to host a lot of their competitions at Monterey Reserve. “I can see a benefit for both parties as there are quite large numbers of Fijians in Casey, Dandenong and Frankston.” In State 4 news newly promoted Somerville Eagles announced on Friday that Scott Morrison had been appointed senior coach for next season. Morrison and star striker Dave Greening were joint senior coaches this year but Greening has decided to step away from that role although it’s understood that he intends to keep playing next season. Morrison will be assisted by Stan Packer and Stuart Mitchell will again be in charge of goalkeeping coaching. Morrison and Mitchell worked together at Rosebud Heart and Mitchell assisted Matty Morris-Thomas at Seaford last year. Morrison has identified the players he wants to sign from other clubs but has refused to name them at this stage.

Nichols’ stable star scores Moonga victory HORSE RACING

By Ben Triandafillou THE Shane Nichols-trained, Streets of Avalon, has once again been successful when racing on the quick sevenday back-up by winning the $200,000 Group Three Moonga Stakes on Saturday 19 October. The stable star clearly overcame his tough run in the Group One Sir Rupert Clarke Stakes two weeks ago as he kicked clear in the Caulfield straight on Saturday to score a one-length victory over the Western Australian visitor, Variation, and Godolphin-owned, Royal Meeting. Ridden by Ben Melham, the underrated galloper bought up his third victory from the five-times he has raced on the quick back-up. His overall record now stands at seven wins and 15 placings from his 38 career starts. Trainer Shane Nichols said he thought the five-year-old gelding would have to raise the bar with the weight he carried in the Moonga Stakes. “With the 58.5kg today, I thought he would have to go up to another level again to win a Group Three race like this so I don’t know how high he can go but around this level he’s very competitive,” Nichols said. Nichols said the barrier and potentially the distance of the Toorak Handicap (1600m) were the main reasons for his prior performance at Caulfield where he finished in 11th. “It is just too far, if he had of drawn barrier two and had a soft run, he might have snuck somewhere but having to do work from the outside gate

made it tough,” he said. “But today, they all sort of looked at each other. We got a lovely run - he was exposed early but hit the line like a demon.” Streets of Avalon’s rating rose to 106 following the Moonga Stakes victory with his earnings surpassing $780,000.

Nichols has plenty of options moving forward into the Spring with the son of Magnus. Potential options include the Group One Cantala Stakes and a Group Three 1400m race on the final day of the Flemington racing carnival. A trip to Dubai could also be on the

agenda in the New Year. “There’s a spread of races in Dubai early next year but his rating might have gone up a couple of points and made it a bit tricky, but we do have that in the back of our mind as well,” Nichols said.
