Fun run gets the colour treatment BONEO Primary School pupils had lots of fun preparing for the upcoming Light Up Fun Run 4 Autism. They threw coloured powder into the air to promote the event – from the Bay Trail Tootgarook (opposite Carmichael St) to the Rye foreshore playground. Participants on the day will get the colour treatment as they pass four ‘colour stations’ over the leisurely three kilometre run/walk, from 10am-midday, Sunday 22 October. They will get together at the Rye foreshore playground afterwards to enjoy entertainment, rides and food.

Funds flow to study ulcer Stephen Taylor steve@mpnews.com.au TYABB girl Ella Crofts has been praised by federal Health Minister and Flinders MP Greg Hunt as a “very brave and courageous young lady”. Mr Hunt’s comments were made while promising $2.4 million following the 13 year old’s campaign for research into the Buruli (or Bairnsdale) flesh-eating ulcer from which she suffers. The disease has been described as being rampant on the Mornington Peninsula where incidences have more than doubled in the past year.

There has been a 300 per cent increase in the number of cases in Victoria in the past five years. In the past two years, the number of cases in children (0-15 years old) has doubled. In the 12 months to 11 September 239 cases have been reported in Victoria. In the past month 40 new cases have been reported. This compares to the 89 for the whole of 2014. Infectious diseases specialist Professor Daniel O’Brien was last month treating 25 people with the flesh-eating ulcer at a Sorrento clinic.

with the condition. He told The News in August that the disease was on the rise and not fully understood. “We still have a lot to learn about where the bacteria live in the environment and how they are transmitted,” he said. The bacteria, which do not enter the bloodstream, infect the skin and subcutaneous tissue, Prof O’Brien said. Cases are centred at Rye but also Tootgarook, Blairgowrie and Sorrento. Several cases have been reported at Mornington and Frankston. Australia is the only developed country with significant Bairnsdale

ulcer outbreaks. The name came from the Gippsland town where the first patients presented in 1939. Professor Tim Stinear – a microbiologist at the Peter Doherty Institute for Infection and Immunity and whose parents have a house in Mornington – believes mosquitoes are the “main way the bacteria are moving”. He played down the link with possums, although saying people should wash their hands after gardening in case cuts or sores became infected through direct contact with contaminated soil. “Mycobacterium ulcerans has moved

from Gippsland into Melbourne since the mid-1980s where it is now endemic on the peninsula,” he said. Professor O’Brien said research indicated the bacteria may be on people’s skin after they had been exposed to it outdoors. Mosquito bites could transfer the bacteria into the skin and tissue. Many people had been bitten during the warmer months but nothing occurred until the cooler months. “We think the incubation period is about four and a half months,” he said. He advised people to cover up in summer and use insect repellent. Continued Page 12

Ferry plan gets down to business Keith Platt keith@mpnews.com.au THE lengthy process of formulating a business case for a car ferry from Stony Point to Cowes, Phillip Island goes a step forward next month with a series of public and industry meetings. On Friday 6 October industry representatives and members of the public can attend “information gathering” meetings at Crib Point. Compilation of the business case for the ferry service is being co-ordinated by Brisbane-based consultants Earthcheck, described as being an international tourism advisory group. The state government has given $200,000 to help Mornington Peninsula and Bass Coast shires “understand and define the community, environ-

mental and economic contribution and impacts of a car ferry between Cowes and Stony Point, including a passenger only service to French Island”. A joint news release from the two shires - which have each put in $25,000 – says “the impacts and opportunities of expanding the current passenger ferry to a car ferry service will be identified as part of the business case to be prepared for the Victorian government”. “The Victorian government, in partnership with Bass Coast and Mornington Peninsula Shire Councils, has appointed a team of transport and business case development professionals to work through the process with our communities and stakeholders to understand the feasibility and impact of this project, and the opportunities it could create,” Bass Coast mayor, Cr

Pamela Rothfield said The peninsula’s mayor, Cr Bev Colomb said the ferry plan – a “wonderful initiative” – conformed to the shire’s 2016-2019 economic development strategy and the peninsula’s regional tourism board’s 2014 destination management plan. As previously reported in The News (“Business case bid for ferry” 2/5/17) an economic study produced six years ago put the overall cost of the project at $47 million and predicted it would lead to greater employment on Phillip Island and the peninsula during and after construction of two new ferry terminals. A pre-feasibility study by consulting engineers Arup in 2003 was followed in 2008 by Bays and Maritime Initiative – Stony Point to Cowes Vehicle Ferry, by Maunsell Australia.

In the July 2010 economic impact assessment commissioned by Bass Coast Essential Economics estimated the ferry service would carry 109,500 cars (323,000 passengers) in its first year increasing to 127,750 cars (375,000 passengers) in a decade. The Essential Economics report was based on a 50-car ferry running from Stony Point and Cowes every two hours between 8am and 5pm. The cost of building a new pier and infrastructure at Stony Point is put at $21m and $25.8m at Cowes. Both piers would be alongside the existing piers. The Essential Economics 2010 study said 285 effective full time jobs would be created during the construction phase of the terminals at Stony Point and Cowes which “will ensure continual low unemployment rates in

Bass Coast and Mornington Peninsula, noting that both shires have relatively high proportions of resident workers occupied in construction-related activities”. Once built, the ferries would require 14 full time staff and create 27 “indirect” full time jobs. An additional 98 jobs would be created in the wider tourism industry. The increased number of visitors to the peninsula and Phillip Island will see $14m injected into the local economies in the first year growing to $16.3m by the tenth year. The Friday 6 October information gathering meetings will be held at Crib Point Community Hall, starting with the industry meeting 9.30am-11am; the community meeting 11.30am-1pm; followed by drop-in sessions 4pm7pm.

‘Positive’ response to marriage proposal AN informal Peninsula Action Day on marriage equality got off to a vibrant start last week when up to 30 volunteers put their case for a ‘Yes’ vote at shopping centres from Blairgowrie to Dromana. Organiser Bryce Paterson said there was a “huge amount of enthusiasm up and down the coast” for the group’s message, Saturday 16 September, with most of those approached in favour of the same-sex marriage proposal. “We engaged with prospective voters and were very pleased with the level of support,” he said. “We reminded them about the postal ballot and inquired about whether they had received and returned their vote. “It was incredible. About 50-60 per cent had received and returned it in support of the ‘Yes’ campaign. Of those who said they hadn’t received their ballot paper about half were not supportive.” Mr Paterson admitted engaging busy shoppers and others on their way to sporting events was “not easy”. During their campaign the group had printed up t-shirts and signs – including an A-frame sign – as well as launching an online campaign and “engaging in conversations”. “We were amazed at how well versed people were; most said they had voted ‘Yes’ and most had replied within a week.” Many asked for stickers and posters to take home or to their workplace. “All the heavy lifting for the campaign was done last week and, this week, we will concentrate on phoning people to remind them about the campaign. “Complacency is a big problem,” Mr Paterson said. “We have got to make sure people put their ballots in.” The deadline is 26 October.

State ‘no’ to fence for the Pillars Keith Platt keith@mpnews.com.au THE failure of a plan to fence off the Pillars cliff jumping spot at Mt Martha is likely to see increasing numbers of visitors to the natural attraction. Although dedicated through various policies to increasing tourism, Mornington Peninsula Shire has been trying to lessen the numbers of people visiting the Pillars. Nevertheless, it is a major attraction without signposts, steps or safety barriers. Alcohol bans, parking bans, warning signs and restricting access have all failed to lessen the steady beat of feet to the cliff top. The Department of Environment, Land, Water and Planning (DELWP) has now pulled the plug on the shire’s biggest weapon – a fence. The department and the Minister for Energy, Environment and Climate Change Lily D’Ambrosio have told the council that a fence is not in line with government policy. In January, the mayor Cr Bev Colomb issued a news release stating that the shire wanted “wherever possible … to encourage visitation to the many wonderful parts of the coastline and inner hinterlands offered by the peninsula, but the Pillars has become an unwanted attraction to many local residents and the shire has sought to take action”. The shire also threatened to “commence the process of handing back the committee of management responsibility to DELWP for the Pillars section of the Mt Martha foreshore between Ellerina and Bay roads.” With both options now off the table, the shire might be forced to concede to the Pillars is an attraction that’s not going to go away and facilitate, rather than frustrate, those wanting to jump from rocks into the bay. Residents have known about and used the Pillars for decades and may also

have to accept the spot is public property. Councillors at the shire’s Tuesday 12 September meeting accepted a recommendation from coastal planner Jeska Dee that they seek clarification from the minister and also prepare to try to manage traffic and use of the Pillars in much the same way as over the 2016/17 summer. As well as installing extra wooden bollards along the Esplanade the shire is asking South East Water if parking can be restricted near its pumping station close to Deakin Drive.

Parking has already been restricted in nearby streets, with police and council local laws officers booking hundreds of vehicles for parking infringements over the past summer. A ban on alcohol which extended several blocks inland from The Pillars also technically prevented residents having a drink on their nature strips. Meanwhile, other entities are cashing in on the popularity of The Pillars, with many visitors arriving by public transport; buying goods at local shops; social media sites; and even a badge (re-

tailing for $13) to show that the wearer has visited the attraction. For its part, the shire has received a $30,000 “public access and risk” grant from the DELWP and will continue to develop a “long term management plan” for the area. This plan will include “consultation and feedback with the community and key stakeholders”. Ms Dee’s report to councillors did not mention feedback from the thousands of visitors who will be sure to be at the Pillars in coming months.

Lobbying campaign gets facelift Neil Walker neil@baysidenews.com.au AN ALLIANCE of six councils that lobbies state and federal governments for investment in the south east has been rebadged and relaunched but ratepayers are in the dark about how much the renewed lobbying push will cost. The South East Melbourne Group of Councils (SEM) includes Frankston, Mornington Peninsula Shire, Kingston, Casey, Cardinia Shire and Greater Dandenong councils. A new website at southeastmelbourne.org and launch event on Friday 15 September at Greater Dandenong council offices in Dandenong mentioned on the group’s new Facebook page flagged a new look for the group. The site domain name was registered last year by Damian Mannix at The Agenda Group, a public relations and lobbying firm. When contacted, Mr Mannix confirmed the firm registered the website address on behalf of the SEM group of councils. The Agenda Group has offices in Melbourne’s Queen St, Sydney and Canberra according to the firm’s website. Mr Mannix is chairman of the Program Advisory Committee at the RMIT School of Applied Communications. He confirmed he is a Labor Party member when asked and was named as a preselection contender for the seat of Mulgrave won by now Premier Daniel Andrews in 2002 when asked by The News. The Agenda Group’s government relations director is Richard Allsop who is also a research fellow at right-wing think tank, the Institute of Public Affairs. Questions subsequently emailed to The Agenda Group were answered by Mornington Peninsula Shire CEO Carl Cowie. “The Agenda Group is funded equally by the

six councils,” he said. “The fees are commercial in confidence.” Mr Cowie confirmed “the South East Melbourne alliance of councils has operated for many years”. “It has been reinvigorated and relaunched as SEM to ensure state and federal governments understand the needs of the south-east region and the opportunities that can generate jobs growth and improve the lives of residents,” he said. “The Agenda Group provides policy, communications and administrative support to SEM”. The SEM group’s site lists the councils’ priorities as a way of “driving growth and prosperity” in the south east. The electrification of the Frankston line to Baxter, the need for a south eastern airport and

the rollout of high-speed internet access to business precincts are listed as priorities on the site. “There are many council alliances already working across Melbourne,” Mr Cowie said. “The south-east region also needs a strong voice to ensure we have the best opportunities for our residents and businesses and compete for funding and investment.” A second major container port for the state at Hastings is also listed as a priority despite a majority of councillors at both Frankston and Kingston councils voting to drop support for the idea in recent months. Infrastructure Victoria has earmarked Bay West near Geelong as the likely location of a second port when the Port of Melbourne reaches capacity in decades to come.

SOUTHERN Metropolitan Police and members of the public will pay tribute to those who have died in the line of duty at a Blue Ribbon Day service at Rosebud RSL, Friday 29 September. The service, which is open to the public, is part of Police Remembrance Day, which recognises the 159 police officers who have lost their lives while protecting the community. Those attending are asked to wear a blue ribbon or attach one to their car’s aerial as a gesture of support. “This service gives the community the opportunity to remember the police officers who have lost their lives protecting the community and to interact with local police,” Rosebud uniform police leading senior constable Ian Huxtable said. The Rosebud RSL is in Eastbourne Rd, Rosebud. The service is the only one in the Southern Metro Area. It has a 10.30am arrival for an 11am start. It will be attended by a local chaplain, members of the public and police from the Southern Peninsula. Donations can be made to the Blue ribbon Foundation at all police stations, at remember. org.au and on the day at the service. McCrae Lions will stage a light show at the McCrae lighthouse Monday 25 September-Sunday 1 October to support the remembrance day.

Flotilla sets sail to farewell a mariner OBITUARY

it are the stuff of legend. Tony Muir wasn’t a legend in the same way that Ulysses is mythologised or the fictional Captain Ahab’s pursuit of a white whale has become legendary, but he was the real thing: a man of the sea. However, with his death Muir is likely to become the stuff of legend. It’s a status he will have earned and have bestowed on him through his deeds, devotion and determination. He was born in Richmond and grew up in South Yarra. As a boy he roamed the banks of the Yarra River and sailed at Albert Park. In the words of Judy, his wife of 54 years, Tony Muir was a handsome wild man, an adventurer, a dreamer. But he had an introspective, deeper side that steered him towards reading books and poetry: Homer’s Iliad and Odyssey, and Keats, Masefield, Tennyson and Gordon. He wrote poetry and sketched. He cherished wooden boats and Judy Muir describes how early in their relationship they embarked on a 15-month journey in a 5.3 metre yacht which had a main sail and a jib but no motor. “Well, it truly is now the ghost and Mrs Muir,” began Judy Muir’s the eulogy for her husband. “Tony was a pioneer. He dived deeper, he flew higher and he lived on the edge, always. He stood by in [battled] heaving seas when an oil rig needed to be evacuated,” Judy Muir told the packed Badcoe Hall. “The vessel’s doors had blown in with wave impact, his crew were all down and

Anthony (Tony) Muir, 1943-2017 Master mariner, diver By Keith Platt SOMETIME over the next few weeks a flotilla of small boats will sail towards Port Phillip Heads. It will be spring, a time of renewal, regeneration and hope. Those on board the boats will look toward the Polperro, because it will be from the deck of his beloved timber vessel that the ashes of Tony Muir will be consigned to the waters that he loved. Tony Muir died on 4 July, less than one month after celebrating his 74th birthday. He had been diagnosed with cancer a decade earlier. Hundreds attended a funeral service for Muir at Badcoe Hall, Point Nepean, on 23 July. Muir lived his life and earned his living in and around the sea. A diver and sailor, he’d worked and sailed overseas and throughout Australia, most recently with the Sorrento-based family business, Polperro Dolphin Swims. In its earlier days Polperro – built in 1979 by the boat-building Pompei family of Mordialloc – had been a dive boat in Bass Strait, with Muir carrying scientists and workers to the islands dotting the strait between Victoria and Tasmania. Regarded by many as a treacherous stretch of water, Bass Strait was like a second home to Muir and he revelled in its many moods. Tales of the sea and those who sail

the seas were of nightmare proportions.” He had rescued others in other desperate situations as well as saving himself after losing his breathing apparatus while underwater “but still had the presence of mind to survive by remaining calm”; he was badly burnt when a vessel capsized, later returning to Singapore with blackened skin. “In an emergency, Tony was wonderfully calm and oh-so capable. He made us safe,” Judy Muir recalled. “Tony’s love and loyalty to family was fierce, his friendships steadfast and he extended care to all those who came into our sphere.” As well as their own three sons – Troy, Ben and Angus - the Muirs “adopted”, or roped in, to make an analogy using one of Tony’s favourite things, any number of people into their extended family. As a sailor and diver Muir knew all about the value of ropes and splicing was a favourite pastime. Like his linguistic skills, Muir used rope as medium with which to build friendships and form relationships. It transcended generations and handing out rope to young passengers or using it to tie gift parcels became a trademark. It is also a tradition taken up other families close to the Muirs. Muir was proud of their Blairgowrie home, Cootehill, but also relished its self deprecating nom de plume, Casa del Whacko. “He just rolled with the changes and cooked, cleaned and did what dads do regardless of whether you were kith

or kin. People mattered. No one was judged, everyone was well-fed,” Judy Muir said. As his health declined and he was unable to speak, the community within which Tony Muir lived started to give back. Shopkeepers on both sides of Port Phillip (Sorrento and Queenscliff) knew what he wanted without the need for words and those working with him could only imagine the frustration he felt at not being able to chastise a stubborn piece of machinery. “Swear words were etched pages deep as he cursed,” Judy Muir said. Up until two weeks before his death he would still go out in his dinghy – fitted with just one comfortable seat, which gave a big hint that he cherished being alone – and Judy Muir would get calls from ferry skippers assuring her that they’d “seen Tony and he’s all right”. Even when ill, practicality would take over. Long-time friend Will Baillieu tells of Muir being “rushed” to hospital by an ambulance that became bogged in the driveway at home. While the paramedics were scratching their heads, Muir calmly let himself out of the ambulance’s back door, walked up the steep drive and returned with his own four-wheel drive. After pulling the ambulance free he returned his own vehicle and then let himself back into the ambulance for the trip to hospital. Muir’s linguistic skills (being able to listen to the SBS news in Arabic or speak to ships’ crews in their own language) were mirrored by his ability

to master the intricacies of machinery. He seemed to relish getting stuck in the mountains with a broken-down vehicle. As son Troy put it: “It wasn’t so much the adrenaline rush he chased as it was about savouring the aftermath. “He had a mind inclined to understanding moving parts and an acumen honed by necessity as he worked in remote places where there was no one to call if you had a problem.” He was an understanding father and if one or other of his sons wasn’t quite up to fixing a particular problem, he would “encourage other talents like torch-holding, tea-making and recovering dropped bits from the bilge”. “There is an old Viking belief that you live on as long as people speak your name in stories and I reckon we’ll be speaking about Tone for a long time to come,” Troy Muir said. Ben Muir remembered their family life as never having a dull moment, with his father “always tinkering away at some project whether it be boats, ropes or engines”. Their “adventures” included camping in the Olgas (Kata Tjuta), cruising the Murray River in a tinny, and island hopping around Bass Strait. His wife Judy and their sons Troy, Gus and Ben were with Tony Muir the night he died. Troy described his father as having “slipped his mooring for his last great adventure – with bravery and grace”. On a fine day in the coming weeks that mooring will be slipped by his family and friends as they take Tony Muir on one last voyage in the Polperro, towards The Heads.

Devilbend’s flow from ‘original source’ AFTER a break of 61 years, water is again flowing into Devilbend Reservoir along its original creek watercourse. Up to 17 million litres a day will enter the reservoir during peak flow times, thanks to a Parks Victoria water diversion project completed last year. The flows will raise levels in the reservoir and ensure its sustainability over summer months.

The reservoir is the largest and most significant water body on the Mornington Peninsula, and this seasonal flow will boost its general health and biodiversity and create better habitats for bird and fish, Parks Victoria said. More than 150 bird species have been seen at the reservoir, including the rare blue billed duck and the white bellied sea eagle. It is also a seasonal home to many migratory birds. The

inflow will benefit the native dwarf galaxias fish which was recently rediscovered in the catch drain. Parks’ ranger team leader Luke Ashford has been watching the results of the project. “Returning the natural flow of water to the original creek bed is already killing off introduced weeds and plants and promoting the return of native species,” he said. “It’s a healthy outcome for both the reservoir and its

natural waterway.” The diversion project was managed in partnership with Melbourne Water. It involved extensive hydrological and excavation work to reactive the creek. Over winter months it will take a portion of the flow from the catch drain and divert it into the reservoir. The system is designed to ensure sustainable flows continue along Devilbend Creek while maintaining the aquatic

health and habitat of Devilbend Natural Features Reserve. “The partnership with Melbourne Water and the local community will allow us to remotely monitor and control the flow rates and water quality running into the reservoir, ensuring a successful biodiversity outcome,” area chief ranger Georgia Kerr said.

Anglers resist shire’s line on foreshore SUPPOSED “contradictions” in the Hastings Foreshore Precinct Plan were highlighted in the Tuesday 12 September Talking Fishing show on Channel 31. Much of the show was dedicated to discussing concerns about the scope and depth of the plan, such as the lack of community input into the monthlong public survey which attracted only 27 respondents willing to discuss their likes and dislikes about the foreshore, what they did there, pressing issues, conflicts between users and possible improvements. The show, hosted by Future Fish Foundation director David Kramer, also criticised the design of the proposed boat ramp parking area, saying it will encourage pedestrians to cross near the boat ramp area. The program also pointed out that the overflow parking area would be smaller. A letter featuring on the Talking Fishing Facebook page refers to a 1991 letter from the shire to the commodore of the Hastings Yacht Club during an earlier incarnation of the Hastings Foreshore Precinct Plan. The letter shows his concerns about moving the path across the front of the yacht club – as is proposed now – and agrees it would be “dangerous”. It stated it would amend the draft plan to instead run the path behind the

yacht club and the boat ramp – which the angling club and yacht club say should now happen. “There are so many contradictions in the plan,” Westernport Angling Club spokesman Don Newman said. “In the boating demand and capacity survey it states: ‘Demand is likely to increase into the future’ – yet they are reducing parking capacity,” Mr Newman said. “The plan also states the angling club’s activities ‘contribute positively to the precinct and should continue’. Yet the plan urges removal of the club’s building and the grass area where the annual whiting challenge presentation is held. “There is no positive suggestion as to where the angling club building should be relocated. The plan states that the ‘yacht club is presently at capacity and requires expansion’ yet they suggest that the angling club and/or the Dolphin Research Institute move in with the yacht club.” The shire was asked for comment on the “contradictions” but did not respond by deadline. Mornington Peninsula Shire is asking for public comment via a drop-in session at Hastings Community Hub, 5.30-7.30pm, Thursday 21 September, as well as an on-line survey before 2 October.

Govt money for ulcer research Continued from Page 1 Ella Croft described her Buruli experience online when calling on the federal government to fund research into the debilitating condition: “I started feeling pain in my knee in early April. Slowly it got worse, with my knee becoming swollen and inflamed, until one day, the skin started breaking down. “We tested the tissue with a dryswab for bacteria multiple times. Each time it came back negative. My knee continued to worsen, despite several courses of antibiotics for simple infections. I eventually got a punch-biopsy in my knee which came back positive for mycobacterium ulcerans. “Since discovering this information, I visited several infectious diseases specialists before coming under the care of a world expert. He recommended surgery to clean out the dead tissue. I ended up getting two operations that week. “About a month later I had a third operation, again under general anaesthetic. I have had a couple of smaller surgeries under local anaesthetic since then. I’ve also had about three months of strong antibiotics – the sort that someone would use if they had tuberculosis. “I’ve had six months of quality medical care and still have not recovered.” Ella said mycobacterium ulcerans was a third-world tropical disease “running rampant on the Mornington Peninsula”. Her mother Lucy Burns, who is a GP, told Channel 9 that when her daughter first complained of a sore knee there were no visible signs of the disease.

‘I’ve had six months of quality medical care and still have not recovered.’

- ELLA Croft

“There was nothing to see, then it started to look a little swollen around the knee but nothing too much to worry about,” Dr Burns said. “A couple of days later it started to get the smallest of sores like a scab or a carpet burn and then a bit of redness around it.” Heeding Ella’s call, Mr Hunt last week said the federal government would provide “more than $2.4 million through the National Health and Medical Research Council (NHMRC) to Monash University and the Univer-

sity of Melbourne for direct research into the Buruli ulcer”. “I have asked the chief medical officer of the Australian government and the head of the NHMRC to work with Victoria on additional research priorities and support,” he said. “I understand the Doherty Institute may put forward a research proposal and I would welcome this.” Mr Hunt said he had spoken with Ella “who is a very brave and courageous young lady”. “She must be commended on a personal level and for her advocacy on this issue. Ella’s father, Tyron Crofts, has also spoken with the chief medical officer about opportunities for further research into the condition.” Ella’s post said the Bairnsdale ulcer released a toxin called mycolactone which decreases immune system function and causes tissue death. It is from the same family as leprosy and tuberculosis. How it spreads is unknown. There is currently no prevention against it. “There have been over 150 cases of mycobacterium ulcerans in Victoria so far this year, she said. “Many of them are active, healthy kids like me, and most are on the Mornington Peninsula.” Ella asked: “Why are the numbers in Victoria increasing so rapidly? Why is it moving? It used to be common on the Bellarine Peninsula, now it is mostly on the Mornington Peninsula. Why is a disease that’s found in tropical Africa also found in temperate Victoria? We don’t even know how it spreads. Answers to these questions would help prevent a worsening epidemic.”


Runway plan ‘aids safety’ THE proposed widening of the sealed section of the north-south runway at Tyabb airfield from 10 metres to 18 metres would improve safety, according to the Tyabb Airfield Precinct Plan now on public display. But Peninsula Aero Club has been quick to point out that the extra width would not be a green light for its use by larger aircraft. Club president Peter Bernardi said the widening would cost the club up to $500,000 and would be completed “hopefully” by year’s end. The precinct plan, by Kneebush Planning and Arcadis, is nearing the end of its six-week public display period (30 September) after a round of public consultation at Tyabb hall on 31 August. Its stated aim is to “achieve a balanced, fair and sustainable co-existence” between the airfield’s operations and amenity of the local community.

Beach closed for ‘safety’ DAMAGE to the cliff face and the beach boxes at the northern end of Mt Martha beach has prompted Mornington Peninsula Shire to close public access “for safety reasons”. The building surveyor officially closed the beach, Tuesday 19 September, until further notice. This will block access to 50 boatsheds, many of which are “substantially damaged”, including those from the south side of boatshed 62 to the north side of boatshed 151, as well as all access paths from the Esplanade leading to the beach in the vicinity of Augusta and Alice streets and Coolangatta Rd, Mt Martha. Signs have been installed at public access points and will be installed at car parks. The walking trail on the foreshore beside the Esplanade remains open. Erosion to the cliff face, and wave action over the years, is blamed for destabilising the cliffs and damaging the boatsheds.

Affected boat shed owners will be notified when weather and tide conditions are safe for council officers to inspect and assess the full extent of the damage. Pictures: Keith Platt

Key recommendations include a Peninsula Aero Club master plan providing its neighbours with more transparency; the aero club to prepare an aircraft noise management plan; the aero club to implement a complaints procedure, as well as ensure all circuit training and gyrocopters be limited to a designated flight path. Other key points are that there be no expansion of special use zone 3 airfield development zone, no change to the use of the east-west runway and no introduction of the airport environs overlay. The aero club has confirmed that no variation was being sought on limits to the number of movements by larger aircraft; the maximum weight of aircraft permitted to use the airport, and that there be no jet take-offs or landings. It says it has no plans to expand the airport. Stephen Taylor

Fire reduction burn-offs cleared for October BURN-OFF restrictions on smaller Mornington Peninsula properties will be eased during October to allow residents to burn off for better fire prevention. Open air burning will be allowed 9am-4pm Fridays and Saturdays on land less than 1500 square metres, provided that no more than one cubic metre of vegetation is burnt at any one time; the fire is not within 10 metres of any neighbouring dwelling, and general fire safety provisions are followed at all times. The shire’s fire prevention officer Katie McKenzie said easing restrictions on land less than 1500 square metres would enable owners of smaller properties reduce fine fuel in the lead up to the fire season. “Residents are reminded burn-off material should not be wet, or green, and general fire safety precautions should be taken at all times,”

she said. “This is a great chance to clean up around your property, but ensure you do it responsibly and safely, and keep your neighbours and local authorities informed.” General fire safety provisions include notifying adjoining landowners/occupiers 24 hours prior to the burn and calling 1800 668 511 at least two hours prior to the burn to log the fire with the Emergency Services Telecommunications Authority. Other provisions include establishing a fire break of at least three metres, ensuring an adult is supervising at all times, having fire protection equipment available, ensuring burn-off material is dry, and not burning off when winds exceed 20 kph.

Preparing for the fire season RED Hill Recreation Reserve has been endorsed as a bushfire refuge for the coming fire season. Residents can go to the top oval when other bushfire plans fail. Mornington Peninsula Shire Council has been working with the CFA, Victoria police, and CFA brigades to identify sites for designation and the top oval met the criteria. Increased traffic in Red Hill caused by the monthly market and annual show has prompted warnings to residents to carefully consider their travel plans in the area. They should only do so when all other plans fail. Planned fuel reduction works will remove such environmental weeds as sweet pittosporum and Monterey pines, in the reserve over the next year. This will allow the bottom oval to meet CFA requirements before the 2018-19 fire season. The works will have a management and rescue plan for animals living in the reserve. Once the works have been completed the remaining vegetation will be managed for its biodiversity and amenity value. The mayor Cr Bev Colomb said the oval’s neighbourhood safer place designation would strengthen the community’s bushfire survival plan in time for summer. “By the start of the upcoming fire season we will have an additional neighbourhood safer place to ensure

our community members are looked after in case of an emergency,” Cr David Gill said. Shire fire prevention officer Katie McKenzie said residents can prepare a personal bushfire survival plan by visiting cfa.vic.gov.au/plan-prepare. CFA officers and Mornington Peninsula Shire staff will undertake annual inspections to ensure the requirements of the bushfire place of last resort standards are met.

Anglers applaud Rye boat ramp works Southern Peninsula Angling Club (70 members on the books) congratulates the Mornington Peninsula Shire Council on supporting the proposal to refurbish the Rye boat ramp. The new eastern floating jetty will support fisherpersons with low mobility and will be much safer for young fisherpersons when boarding or disembarking. The fourth ramp will ease congestion in summer time and schnapper season – nothing is more frustrating than an hour long wait to launch or retrieve. The resurfacing of the existing lanes is a must as they have poor drainage and are sand traps in their current configuration. The approach chutes definitely need straightening as it is difficult and time consuming to line up the ramp with a dog-leg in the approach. The reconfiguration of the approach and departure area should make for faster departure/return. No overall increase in trailer parking is proposed, so this effectively limits the number of boats and jet skis using the ramp. Without regular dredging of the boating manoeuvre area the ramp will not function well this is a must have. Boating and fishing bring much needed income to many businesses; this increases several fold in summer with our camping and day tourists – without them a lot of businesses would collapse. Council will have to dedicate funds to this project, but significant funding is available through government grants. We wish the western jetty was being refurbished but appreciate this may be in a future project – it is only a matter of time before there is serious injury at this jetty. Mooring poles in the approach channel and a summer time marshal to monitor the ramp are needed. Is there any scientifically supported argument that there will be an increase in pollution or endangerment to wild life if the refurbishment proceeds? – we think not. Steve Fraser, treasurer Southern Peninsula Angling Club

Sign against change Mornington Peninsula Shire is asking community groups like ours to support its opposition to a number of changes gazetted in March to the Victorian planning provisions. In the past month and over the next few weeks, a petition is being letter boxed by our members in the Dromana, McCrae, Rosebud and Capel Sound areas. Peninsula Speaks is co-ordinating the petition to be presented to parliament. The main concerns for the Mornington Peninsula residential area are: The increase in height which will allow development to be three storeys - 11 metres high (this will change the unique and special character of the peninsula). If a new development is proposed next door

then you may not be notified or be able to object to Council or VCAT (Victorian Civil Administration Tribunal). In some locations it may be possible to build multiple, three storey units where now only a single residence exists. If you love where you live, please read the face page of the petition carefully, fill it in and return it to the address provided. Doris Campbell, president Mornington Peninsula Ratepayers Association

Behold! It’s art I congratulate Michael Long for expressing what many may feel regarding the “Iconclast” [art on Peninsula Link] and the ugliness of the “sculpture” of the wrecked pylon (“Tollway ‘art’” Letters 19/9/17). It surpasses the silver dwarf and the pseudo-hotel, and I really did not think that possible. Would it not be more in keeping with environmental concerns to plant trees to beautify the tollway, rather than uglify it, as these pieces of so-called “art” do? And so much cheaper too. Ann Thornton, Mt Martha

‘Iconclast’ succeeds One premise of creative art, including sculpture, is to arouse public opinion. If a sculpture such as “Iconoclast” does not draw comment then it can be said it has failed. I support Michael Long the right to express his opinion (“Tollway ‘art’” Letters 19/9/17). However, he is not forced to use Peninsula Link. Vic Langsam, Frankston

Road check Please, can anyone tell me what the Mornington Peninsula Shire councillors do to earn their stipend? I am confident in saying it is very doubtful whether they ever tour around their own constituency to see all the potholes in the roads. Here in Seawinds ward alone it is a case of swerving every 50 or 60 yards (or metres) to avoid losing one’s car or doing damage to a tyre in the large holes. In the old days of the Flinders shire there was a patrol truck covering every area and any potholes were fixed virtually immediately. Where are the patrols now or, come to that, why don’t the councillors travel around and note them? No doubt my complaint will seem like p*****g in the wind but something really needs doing instead of trips to China and elsewhere. Tony Lovelock, Rosebud

Rubbish report The reporter [Stephen Taylor] is very correct in saying how severe a problem dumping rubbish is throughout Mornington Peninsula Shire (“Dumping ’waste of money’” The News 12/9/17). Might I suggest that the shire itself may be the cause? I have recently moved to this area after a long period in NSW, and a very brief

ANGLERS are praising the changes to come with work yet to start on extending the Rye boat ramp. Picture: Yanni

period in the ACT and I have never seen tip, recycling, rubbish collection areas so expensive as those charged here. In all of the places I have lived green waste is free to dump, after all the shire turns it into mulch and either uses it on parks and gardens or resells it. The same with cardboard - it is sold on for recycling, so is metal waste. If you rent a home you do not get the three free tip passes and you will be charged huge fees to get rid of all types of your waste. Obviously it is much easier to find a quiet bit of bush at no cost. While on the subject of waste areas I cannot understand why so many staff are required to stand around and point to various areas and not lift a finger to help unload, probably a work safety thing but not a good look nonetheless. Mick Chalk, Hastings

Survival a priority Probably the most basic human instinct is to survive while we still have life, but for someone else to make a contra-decision when we may be incapable, even temporarily, is a violation of that life. We may have signalled a different viewpoint in our life, but people do change their minds. If such legislation as euthanasia, or euphemistically called medically assisted suicide, was passed by any government anywhere, people might think it is not only legal but moral as well. Not so. Governments can become quite fluid on a moral issue depending on their own particular stance, or sometimes where there might be a vote!. Once the genie is out of the bottle and there is no going back. Or are we deciding to return to barbarism? What type of staff would attend to the “needs” of the patient? A doctor who does not agree with the Hippocratic oath (never to do harm) which has not altered since ancient times and had much to do with the respect accorded to doctors. Maybe a new “specialist” (he/she is ever so sweet and thorough) or maybe a contract killer on call, will suffice. These people are not too concerned with a moral stance.

Where are the renowned scientists who strain themselves, and our money, to find new cures for anything but cannot seem to be able to control the pain or other problems for the dying person? Money spent on palliative care with the right staff would importantly relieve much of the fear for the patient and loved ones. In our present privileged civilisation, every human life is precious and accountable. We are commanded not to kill, and at birth and death we are, every one of us, vulnerable. We only live once. It is not a done deal yet. Maureen Federico, Frankston South

Yes, no emotions Over the top emotional stuff coming out of this yes/no equality postal survey [on same sex marriage], particularly on Facebook pages. Surely, aside from the political monsters, we can be allowed our opinion either way without any mud-slinging; both sides. The no voters can only talk “what about the children” and the yes voters seemingly adopt a position of superiority. There’s a dangerous shortage of innate intelligence, a big factor in everything, the speed of perception and understanding, the analysis of the facts as presented to us, including if possible the knack of prospective thinking, (looking ahead), deciding (right or wrong), conclusions. The equality yes/no vote is not about children or fertility services, adoptions, fostering, surrogates; all covered under state legislation. The postal survey result will not change that. It is not about the Safe Schools program. As it happens, I’m a yes man, but the aggression by many of the yes voters in coming down hard on the no camp can be a worry. Add in the likes of Cory Bernadi and John Howard from the no side, with false warnings of opening the mythical floodgates, quietly imposing doubt on the undecided. In the meantime we try to ignore it, albeit knowing beyond doubt it’s all about homophobia. Do I have a problem with the LGPTI? Not a skerrick. As for women - well now, that’s a different matter. Patience, people. Cliff Ellen, Rye

100 YEARS AGO THIS WEEK...

Frankston bootmaker John Reynolds dies Compiled by Cameron McCullough IT is with extreme regret we have to record the death of Mr John Reynolds, which took place at St Pancras Hospital, Frankston, on Wednesday morning 1st, after a painful illness, the cause of death being “pernicious anemia.” The deceased, who was only 50 years of age, came to Frankston some 30 years ago, and commenced his trade as boot maker, and followed it up to within a few weeks of his death. The deceased was a great lover of cricket, and as young man took numerous trophies for excellence in the game. He was also connected with the Rangers in which body he attained the rank of Sergeant. He took great interest in the advancement of the church of England and acted as secretary to St Paul’s Church for about 20 years. Of late years he has withdrawn himself from active participation in outdoor sports, and devoted his spare time and attention to the welfare of the gardens in Bay Street, and it is entirely for his care and attention that they have attained the state of perfection to which they have. It was also mainly through his efforts that the Young Men’s Club was established in Frankston, where the evenings can be spent pleasantly, apart from any pernicious influences. He was of a kind and generous disposition, every ready to lend a helping hand to those in need. He leaves a widow, and grown-up family of two, as well as a son by a former marriage, to mourn their loss. The funeral took place yesterday (Friday) afternoon, the remains being

conveyed to the Frankston cemetery, followed by a large number of sorrowing friends. Many beautiful floral tributes were sent from the citizens and local bodies. The Rev. A. P. M’Farlane officiated at the grave. Mr H. Gamble had charge of the funeral arrangements. *** THE Treasurer for the Roll of Honor Fund gratefully acknowledges receipt of ten shillings donation from Mr H. G. Wells. *** A GENERAL meeting of the Somerville Fruitgrowers’ Association will be held on Monday next, Oct 1st at 8pm when the following business will be transacted - Report of conference, Fruit pool, Minimum price, Show. *** THE Jumble Fair in the Frankston Mechanics, in aid of St Paul’s Church funds, will be opened this afternoon, and continued during the evening, when there will be an attractive display of goods to be disposed of and a good programme of amusements carried out during the evening. *** THE Langwarrin Methodist Sunday School Anniversary services will be held tomorrow in the church, when services will be conducted in the afternoon and evening by Mr Austin. On the Monday evening, 1st October a concert and coffee supper will be held, when a good programme will be provided. *** OWING to the Hall being taken on the night of the next regular Wattle Club fortnightly dance, it has been

decided to hold a euchre party and dance on next Thursday night, October 4th. The usual euchre party and dance will also be held on the following Thursday and the Dance will take place on Saturday, October 20th. *** A SALE of gifts will be held in the Agricultural Hall, Somerville, on Friday and Saturday, 5th and 6th October in aid of the Church Funds, under the auspices of the Presbyterian Ladies Guild. The fair will be opened on Friday evening at 7:30 p.m. by the Rev N. Webster. Besides the attractive display of goods to be disposed of their will be a shooting gallery, quoit competitions, nail driving, hoopla, and other amusements. *** CHRISTMAS parcels for soldiers. The London Headquarters Staff of the Y M.C A. have been asked to purchase and despatch parcels to Australians in France. They are willing to under take this service buying as the market allows and making each parcel as varied and useful as possible, but requests must reach the National Office at Elizabeth House Melbourne not later than 6th October. Parcels may be ordered at three prices 5s, 10s and 20s. *** MR G S. Slocombe of Tyabb notifies that he his been appointed agent for the Victorian Orchardist Cooperative Association and has in stock fruit cases arsenate of lead, lime, sulphur,copper, soda, nails paper

wood wool and everything likely to be required on the orchard. *** THE Somerville Red Cross Society are holding a social evening on Tuesday, October 2nd, in the Somerville Hill, to show their recognisation and appreciation to the Boys who have returned from the front, both local and surrounding districts. There will be a good musical evening interspersed with dancing, followed by a good supper. These boys have all seen active service and most of them are Gallipoli heroes. All are welcome to give the boys cheer. Red Cross members and their associated workers are to provide supper by bringing a basket and the public will be admitted at one shilling. Mrs White, vice president and the secretary will receive the guests of the evening, and councillor Chas. Murray will act as chairman. Mr Carr has charge of the musical arrangements. Permission has been given for all returned soldiers to wear uniform on this occasion. *** FROM an interview we had with Mr Brierley, manager of the Frankston Gas Works, we understand that the installation of the electric lighting plant in the Shire of Frankston and Hastings is nearing completion. The company has experienced great difficulty, owing to war conditions, in securing the necessary material to go on with the work, but happily this has now been overcome, and most of the plant is now on the ground. The new power house is finished, and the engines and dynamos put in

position. Poles are in course of erection along the Mornington Road, and other roads are being supplied as quickly as they can be delivered, and the manager expects everything to be in order for the trial runs in the course, of a few days. *** DEEP regret was expressed here when the news came through last week of the death of Alma Day, at the age of 14 years, as the result of a railway crossing accident at Noble Park. Mr and Mrs Day had just recently left this district and bought a farm at Noble Park and great sympathy is extended to them. A wreath was sent by the children attending the Somerville State School as a token of the esteem in which they held their late school mate. *** Frankston School. Work will be resumed next Monday, Miss Keane wishes all girls and boys, who have reached the age of 4½ years, and desire to attend to enrol not later than next week. Silva Parsons was the first pupil to donate a book to the school library. Four others have followed her good example. An old plough wheel is wanted as a part for a circular swing. Captain Conder wrote such a very nice letter, to his dear little friends, expressing the warm thanks of the sick soldiers for the welcome fresh eggs, that only a score of dozens can begin to square our obligation to him. *** From the pages of the Mornington Standard, 29 September 1917

THE MEANING OF EXISTENCE... AND OTHER SHORT STORIES

Reflections of a Retired Tree Climber By Stuart McCullough I GUESS you could say I’ve retired. At the top of my game, I decided to give it away, hang it all up and leave it to others to honour the legacy I’d built over a period of years. It’s important to know when your job is well and truly done and just as important to get out of the way let others have a go. I couldn’t go back if I tried. It’s not just a question of passion or commitment but of ability. Fact is, I don’t think I’d trust myself to even attempt to try and climb a tree anymore. I was a climber, devoted to climbing pretty much anything I could. It started simply, as these things do, with my siblings and I launching ourselves all over the furniture as though a three-piece lounge was an item of gym equipment. It drove our parents spare with frustration. We’d be rolling, leaping and cavorting whilst they’d lament, believing such antics were a form of abuse. Not that the furniture ever complained. So far as we were concerned, they were there to be conquered. I grew up in Tyabb. And growing up in Tyabb meant there was an inexhaustible supply of both mud (so it seemed) and trees. It’s difficult (not to mention messy) to try and climb mud, but trees are – quite frankly – begging to be climbed, and I devoted a significant part of my childhood to doing exactly that. Of all the things I scaled, trees were my favourite. What I remember most is the sense of being challenged; it felt as though my life would not be complete until such time as I managed to reach the top and look out into the distance.

Separating the paddocks were rows of huge pine trees. I’m sure they served some purpose but I never asked. Planting a row of trees was, I suspect, probably far more economical than building a fence. Or perhaps the cows liked them. Whatever the reason, these trees

loomed large against the horizon. To climb to the top would take you half way to heaven. Indeed, at such an altitude, your greatest hazard wasn’t falling so much as it was low-flying aircraft. The task of climbing a tree was not

as easy as it looked. It was far more difficult than falling off a bike (which I excelled at) and trickier than herding cats (which I never bothered to try). First, you had to find a point of entry. That is, a part of the tree that would let you get that crucial first foothold. Until both your feet were off the ground, you couldn’t truly say that you’d started. Some trees had their own defence systems that made it tough – a phalanx of spiny branches that poked and pierced and made any attempt at ascent near impossible. Others seemed to be built for the sole purpose of being climbed, their limbs like ladder rungs. Once both feet were off the ground, you had to weave your way through the branches. I always looked up. There seemed to be something that drove me forwards towards the top. Only once there was no more tree to climb would I ever look down. The view from the top was little short of magnificent. Fields of grass rolled in the wind like waves on an ocean. You’d see other people’s houses and yards; home to lives of love and drudgery and drama lived without fuss or fanfare. Depending on where you did your climbing, you might even see the main road. The cars looked like toys. It felt like another world. Getting down always seemed like a far more hazardous affair. It was no further to climb down than it was to climb up, but it felt entirely different. I’ll admit to being anxious. By the time my feet returned to earth, I was grateful to have gotten through unscathed. Perhaps that’s why I gave it up. I couldn’t tell you when I last

climbed a tree, or even what tree it was. I just know that I stopped. Whether it was the wisdom that comes with getting older or the enhanced grip that gravity has on you as you get bigger, I couldn’t really say. My nephew, Tyler, is five. He loves to climb. Given the family history, this really shouldn’t come as any kind of surprise. Last weekend, we stopped in at the National Gallery. Out in the garden on the other side of the Great Hall is a climbing frame and within about three seconds, Tyler was all over it. He was up, down, around and in between every wire strand. I’d be amazed if he hadn’t broken a record of some description in the process. We timed him as he climbed to the top and down again and promised to inform the front desk, in case they wanted to erect a plaque or something. The urge to climb has left me and the urge to be careful has taken over. When I see a tree now, my thoughts don’t go to what it might be like to climb to the top. Even if I were able to reach the top, getting back down is an entirely separate question. There’s nothing more embarrassing, I suspect, than being winched to safety from the top of a pine tree as a result of a middle-aged misadventure. (It probably doesn’t help that, in addition to being afraid of falling from trees, I am also afraid of helicopters.) It’s time to accept that my climbing days are long behind me. But to my nephew, Tyler, I say ‘keep on climbing’. Maybe he can tell what the world looks like from a great height. stuart@stuartmccullough.com

Stonecats aim for five in row PENINSULA LEAGUE

By Toe Punt WITH the 2017 MPNFL Peninsula Division season now behind us, clubs will now turn their attention to the arduous task of locking away coaches and recruiting. Here’s a sneak peek at what clubs should focus their attention on in preparation for 2018. Whilst AFL South East is yet to hand down its decision on the format of the MPNFL next season, it’s expected that Chelsea, Karingal and Langwarrin will play in MPNFL Division Two next season. Frankston YCW: The Stonecats again proved that they are the benchmark of the competition. Once again in the silly season, clubs will go after their stars. However, why would you leave? Four straight premierships says the Stonecave is the place to be. At age 38, even Ash Eames proved that you can be at your best if managed well. There are no obvious deficiencies that need rectifying. Bonbeach: The Sharks desperately need some more leg speed in the middle of the ground and another key forward to help out Trent Dennis-Lane. Owen Hulett said himself he prefers to play in defence and with him down there with Douglas, Sole, Carpenter and co, that area of the ground looks OK. The Sharks have the grunt in the middle but need speed. Another target higher up the ground in attack is required. Edithvale-Aspendale: The Eagles need another key defender to assist Mark Mullins. Brent Bowden being injured didn’t help in attack, however, with Meehan and Bussey, as well as Bowden, offensively they look sound. A few of the young forwards, including the likes of Flavelle, need to take the next step and become midfielders. The likes of Heyes and Tim Mannix need some assistance. Pines: The Pythons will obviously

Picture: Scott Memery

get back Aaron Edwards in the second half of the season and they’ll be thereabouts. They also get Saad who signed with them mid this season with a view to playing in 2018. The ruck looks solid with Dylan Smilie continuing to develop. Some genuine leg speed through the middle would be handy with Potts and Scanlon better suit-

ed to do the grunt work. Getting another key defender would allow Guy Hendry to become a very damaging swing player. Mt Eliza: All eyes will be on Mt Eliza. If you believe the rumours, the likes of Grant Goodall and Justin Van Unen are out of there and there are some other players who are a little disgruntled, given

the club has tightened its purse strings. What they will be left with though are the blokes that are committed to the club and buy into what the club stands for and where it wants to go. Perhaps a step back to take a step forward. Seaford: The Tigers will be feeling like they underachieved in 2017 and that an opportunity to play finals went beg-

ging. What they did show though is that their best is good enough against all of the best sides in the competition. A ruckman will be number one on the shopping list, while a key forward capable of booting 65-plus goals would be handy also. The Tigers aren’t far away. Mornington: The Doggies will be buoyed by the fact that Simon Goosey is back at the helm. The club has an abundance of good junior talent who former coach Chris Holcombe gave plenty of opportunities to. Goosey should be able to take that to another level given his elite program experience and ability to teach young players to play his way. You can guarantee that ‘Goose’ will bring in a few new faces also. Karingal: There will be plenty of excitement around the Bulls in 2018, given its new state-of-the-art facility will be unveiled at Ballam Park and they will be in a different, more competitive division for them. New coach Brett Dunne will engage and excite the more experienced players while teaching, guiding and inspiring the young talent. There will be some new faces too, which will see the Bulls be very competitive. Chelsea: The Gulls get to experience a new coach in 2018 under quality onfield performer James Brain. The Gulls made terrific inroads in 2017 and can only improve next season in Division Two. Its best was very competitive this season but the problem was sustainability, both in games and across the season. Langwarrin: Langwarrin needs a coach first and foremost. Someone with a profile to recruit some players and make the club relevant again. Someone who will gain the immediate respect of the senior players and inspire, teach and guide the kids. Clubs are circling the Kangas and they get just one chance of getting the decision right. A wrong decision and the club will trend further south.

Premiership up for grabs NEPEAN LEAGUE

By Toe Punt MPNFL Nepean Division is likely to be renamed Division Two in 2018 and Sorrento, Frankston Bombers and Rosebud will not be part of it. Despite the fact AFL South East is still a couple of weeks away from making a decision on the new structure, it is widely tipped that the reigning premier, runner-up and third-placed Rosebud will head to Division One and that Chelsea, Karingal and Langwarrin will head to Division Two. Let’s take a look at what clubs require heading into 2018. Sorrento: The most important decision Sorrento needs to get right is the appointment of a non-playing coach. The Sharks have the required talent on the field with no real deficiency and will be competitive immediately with the top bracket in Division One. Former Melbourne skipper Jack Trengove has been widely tipped to go to the Sharks. The Sharks can’t afford to lose anyone though – and why would you leave? Chris Dawes owes them another year too.

Frankston Bombers: The Bombers have lost Nathan Lonie from the 2017 grand final side, which hurts the experience on the field. Two grand final losses highlight that the Bombers are off the mark. They need a couple of key forwards, as Zack Longham needs the third best defender and Beau Muston’s best is well past him. They also need to change their game style to be able to defend. They’ll get smashed with the current game plan in Division One. Rosebud: The Buds need to recruit and hopefully, there’s some cash in the bank to get some players. Rumour is Bancroft and Spooner will retire, as will Ben Dwyer, given they don’t believe they’ve got what’s left in Division One. They’re big holes to fill. The Buds also need a key forward and key defender. They need to do everything to keep Matt Baker and get his brother Tom back, who are both being offered plenty at the club next door. Hastings: The Blues goes into the 2018 Division Two season as flag favorites, given the top three are all going up a level. With a new coach in Ricky Ferraro, it’s believed they

are keeping the large majority of the list, while also picking up some handy types, none more so that Matt Boland, who will be a star of the competition, while there’s another ex-Bonbeach forward is looking to go there. Red Hill: The Hillmen have replaced Tony Blackford as coach after he played a major role in rebuilding the club, making it relevant again and giving it a profile. There will be high expectations on new coach Jamie Mollo. Talk already is that the likes of Ben Hughes, who got overlooked for the job, along with close mate Mitch Wallace are looking elsewhere, while Sean Marchetti is also unsettled. Blake McCormack, a popular figure at the Hill, is the front-runner for the Langwarrin job. Dromana: The Tigers need a massive pre-season – buy-in from every player and they need to get the likes of Sam Fowler back for the season. Sam needs to dominate a senior year at local level and then go to the Dolphins with a reputation. They should get back a couple in Jack Fowler and Jackson Quigley too, while promising ruckman Majok Puok from Pines will

be a good get. Coach Rikki Johnston needs to play on and Steve Hamill needs to be his right-hand man. Somerville: The Eagles went through a rebuild of the club in 2017 and it was tough at times. The benefit will come in 2018. Andrejs Everitt is invested in the club and his experience in the AFL system will be a massive bonus for the kids. Being the runner in the U19 Grand Final was superb from him. If the Eagles can keep their list and get a couple back, together with good kids, they’ll be there again. Devon Meadows: The Meadows had a tough season after losing a lot of players this time last season. Word from coach Glenn Michie is that a number of those players who went elsewhere or didn’t play are keen to come back. The Meadows also need to focus on getting a couple of good kids from the Cranbourne system, given there may be limited opportunities in the seniors. Pearcedale: The Panthers can’t afford to lose one player! They showed that with a full list, they were more than competition for anyone. Coach Leigh Stewart needs to ensure they are

the fittest club in the comp. Pour some resource into a fitness guru and make sure the list is cherry ripe. Rye: Watch Rye improve! We don’t often see Rye at the bottom for two years running and with Nick Jewell there as chairman of selectors, he is pretty good at getting recruits. Rye will invest, we know that. . Crib Point: The Magpies need attitudinal changes. The club played in a grand final less than five seasons ago but now sits at the bottom. It needs a positive attitude across the board, especially at the top. There’s some great things going on with the kids and that’s where the focus needs to be. Less negativity of what they don’t have and more focus on what they do have will turn things around quickly. A coach would help too. Tyabb: Hearing that they did not make contact with coach Mark Paganoni for some time after the season is a disgrace. He did so much for that club both on and off the field. Perhaps the Yabbies need to stop looking at AFL South East to prop them up and save them and do something about it themselves.

Southern v Calder in Grand Final showdown SOCCER

By Craig MacKenzie SOUTHERN United’s championshipwinning under-13s have won their way into the NPLW Grand Final after defeating Bayside United 2-0 at Comets Stadium last weekend. The Grand Final takes place at 10am this Sunday at ABD Stadium in Meadow Heights and Southern will come face to face with its 2017 nemesis, Calder United, which finished runner-up in the title race. Calder won the qualifying final 1-0 two weeks ago forcing Southern into last Saturday’s sudden-death preliminary final. But the local club will go into the clash primed by a meticulous preparation arranged by senior coach Emma Bracken and assistant Aaron Myatt. “We’ll train on the same nights – Monday, Wednesday and Friday – but we’ll scale the sessions back from 75 minutes to 60 minutes and we’ll do some hard, sharp, intense stuff,” Bracken said. “It’ll be more about getting the girls into the right headspace because Calder’s been a bit of a psychological barrier for us because of their physicality. “All we need to worry about is playing our game. We’ve scored goals all year and we know that we can beat them.” The sides clashed three times in the league with Southern winning 4-0 and 4-1 but going down 2-1 away from home. “The loss was on a tiny pitch and it was a very physical game and when we lost 1-0 in the qualifying final the pitch was really wet and again it was a physical game,” Bracken added. “We can’t worry too much about what they’re doing because we know what we are capable of and we’ll play our usual way and try and take it to them because that’s how we’ve played all year. “If we get a good sized pitch and a good surface we know that we can play some good football.” Southern is hoping to enlist the help of Frankston-based sports psychologist Sue Lawrence to sit down with the squad and discuss strategies for dealing with the intensity and physical pressures of the looming showdown. “We sometimes forget how young these girls are and this is a pretty big occasion that none of them have experienced before,” Bracken said. “I believe in them and I’m confident if we can get them into the right mindset then we can play to our potential.” The first half of last weekend’s preliminary final was a tight affair with only two shots on target as both sides struggled to carve out clear-cut chances.

Southern mainstays Taylah Hennekam and Alex Jones were in their customary central defensive positions with captain Sage Kirby and Alessandra Davis in midfield. Southern’s dynamic duo, Golden Boot winner Rhys McKenna and winger Candy Kilderry, had finished the league campaign with 48 goals between them with McKenna finding the back of the net 28 times but a well organised Bayside defence kept them shackled. The best chance of the half was engineered by Davis in the 21st minute when the pocket rocket cut a swathe through the Bayside midfield and charged into the penalty box. She was fouled but maintained her balance and was only thwarted by a superb smother from Bayside custodian Ruby Dale who had read the danger and charged off her line effectively closing down Davis. A significant positional change in the second half was the switch into a central midfield role of Hennekam with right back Ezel Duyar linking with Jones in central defence. Hennekam can play, that is certain, but she also adds grunt to the engine room and is very effective.

Four minutes into the half the deadlock was broken. Davis engineered a stunning break from inside her defensive half and surged deep into the right of the attacking half before striking a slide-rule pass to McKenna in a central position. The ace predator controlled the ball then spun around and unleashed a low right-foot shot that Dale was helpless to stop from going inside the far upright. It triggered a period of Southern dominance and after Kilderry was tripped just outside the area in the 43rd minute Hennekam’s well-struck free-kick bounced off the top of the crossbar and over. Three minutes later Bayside had a mountain to climb after the ball was played in from the right and was deflected to the far post where the incoming Kilderry made it 2-0 from point blank range. Three times in three minutes McKenna came close to scoring. She shot straight at Dale after good lead-up work by Kilderry in the 49th minute, effected a fine turn and shot that whistled past the far post a minute later then received the ball after a great Hennekam run into the area in the 52nd

minute but sent her volley wide. With three minutes of normal time remaining Davis and Duyar were rested and came off the pitch to rousing applause from appreciative Southern fans. Two minutes later Kilderry was unlucky when her well-timed volley cannoned off the near post. When the whistle blew for the last time it signalled the end of an impressive second-half display from the champions who played at a tempo and with a cutting edge, they will need to maintain throughout the Grand Final. Meanwhile, Langwarrin import Connor Belger had a big weekend winning both major club awards. On Friday night Belger was named senior players’ player of the year with fellow Liverpudlian Paul Speed runnerup while Nick Simmons won the reserves equivalent and Elliot Clarke was runner-up. Belger repeated the dose at the club’s presentation night on Saturday by winning the senior best and fairest with another UK import, Alex Metcalfe, runner-up. Clarke won the reserves best and fairest and Nevin Velupillay was runner-up. Belger was top scorer in the seniors

with 12 goals while Jack Thornton’s 17 goals clinched the reserves top scorer award. Simmons was named best upcoming junior while Scott Powell and Chris Jones were joint winners of the club person of the year award. Katherine Webb and Chloe Swannell shared the senior women’s best and fairest award with Webb top scorer with 14 goals. In other news, Paulo Pinheiro has firmed as favourite to retain the senior coaching post at Seaford United, which was relegated from State 2 South-East last season. “I’ve really enjoyed my time here and there’s a strong feeling of unfinished business so I’d welcome the opportunity of getting this team back to winning ways,” said Pinheiro. Seaford president Willie Lynn will recommend to the new committee that Pinheiro be reappointed for a third straight season. This weekend: SUNDAY 10am: Calder Utd v Southern Utd, NPLW under-13 grand final at ABD Stadium (Barry Road, Meadow Heights).

Mitchell punches through the pain By Ben Triandafillou CURRENT WBC world number 13, Jayde ‘J-Mitch’ Mitchell, of Blairgowrie has undergone surgery following his last fight when defending his WBC OPBF title against Aniwaer Yilixiati on Friday 4 August. Mitchell “flared something” in his neck a couple of weeks before his fight against Yilixiati but ignored the pain as he prepared to take on his toughest opponent to date. “Yilixiati was the highest rated contender in my region so I had to ignore the pain as the fight was at the forefront of my mind,” Mitchell said. “I had a bit of pins and needles

and numbness in my left arm but I wanted to push on with the fight and got caught a couple of times on the top of the head. “Because he’s such as powerful puncher, it compressed the vertebrae’s in my neck and ruptured one of the disks which was pinching my nerve cord and digging into my spinal cord.” Mitchell was referred to the head of the Department of Surgery at the University of Melbourne, Professor Andrew Kaye, and underwent surgery on Thursday 14 September. “He squeezed me in and just made it happen. He said the “surgery went exactly as planned” which is great

news,” Mitchell said. “I’ve got a good team around me and I have all the faith in the world that they will help me return early next year.” Mitchell won’t be able to throw any punches until December but if all goes to plan he can start running and working on his fitness again in four weeks time. “I’ll be chomping at the bit by the time December comes but hopefully if I pass all the fitness tests I can be back sparring in January. We will be in the hunt for a world rated opponent and continue to pick our way through the ratings,” he said.

Surfing siblings hit the waves in Sydney IT will be an action-packed holiday for surfing siblings, Sara and Lucas Dickson, as they travel between Victoria and New South Wales to compete in several national surfing events on Saturday 23 September. The siblings will compete in two nation-wide Ripcurl GromSearch events as well as the Hurley’s BL Blast Off with their journey starting at Jan Juc, Victoria. Sara, 9 and Lucas, 11 have been surfing since the ages of three and four and these school holidays they will compete in the Ripcurl Grom-

Search under-12 events. Father and keen surfer, Michael Dickson, said that the family has always been into surfing so it was only natural that they’d enjoy it too. “They picked it up at an early age and have more recently competed in the GromSearch events,” Dickson said. “They’re really excited for the trip as they’re hoping for warmer water and warmer weather.” Following the Jan Juc Ripcurl GromSearch, the pair will travel to Palm Beach, NSW to compete

in the BL Blast Off on Tuesday 26 September. Along with 348 other groms, the local charges will hit the waves of Sydney and receive world-class coaching and performance feedback from surfing greats such as Barton Lynch, Layne Beachley and Tom Carroll. They will then head to Maroubra, NSW to face some of Australia’s most talented young surfers at the second Ripcurl GromSearch event of the season.

Aussie star: Jackson Boyd, 17, competes at the under-18 Baseball World Cup in Canada. Picture: Supplied

Boyd competes against the “world’s best” By Ben Triandafillou BASEBALL pitcher Jackson Boyd, of Langwarrin competed against the “world’s best” at the under-18s Baseball World Cup in Thunder Bay, Canada earlier this month. This was Boyd’s first time representing Australia at the World Cup and he helped the side finish just one win shy of playing for a bronze medal. Boyd, 17, said the tournament was a good challenge to see how his pitching would hold up against baseball players from around the world. “It wasn’t easy but I was able to see how my game goes compared to the best,” he said. “It was something I have never really done before so it was great to have the experience. “The way they go about their baseball is just a whole other level. They’re like robots compared to us, USA just don’t do anything wrong. “I would have thrown over 100 pitches in a match and then have four

days rest but the Japanese and the Koreans would just go out and do it again the next day.” The Australian side was defeated in the opening round by Korea but Boyd said they were still understanding what the World Cup was about and the nerves might have just gotten the best of them. After having his first taste at competing at the top level, Boyd relished his second match and the Australian side went on to win their next three games. They then faced Canada for a chance to play for a bronze medal but their streak came to an end when defeated by the host country. The Australian side then faced world number 1, Japan, in the super rounds of the tournament to have one last crack at making it into the bronze medal play-off. Being highly competitive, the side didn’t go down without a fight but was narrowly defeated by one run.

Blues sign on Harms as head coach THE Frankston Blues basketball club has signed on SEABL point guard Andrew Harms for a further three years as head coach of the Blues senior men’s program. Harms, who has had a junior and senior career at the Blues as well as a SEABL career leading the Dandenong Rangers to multiple conference championships, will continue his role he took on mid-season this year. Harms will head into the 2018 season with greater awareness having spent some of last season working with the playing group. “The interim role was a valuable one for me in many respects,” he said. “It provided a chance to assess the program holistically, from training standards and game preparation, to on-court performance and player depth charts, along with off-court and how committed the club are to building an elite program.” Frankston Blues chairman Chris Beattie said having Harms signed on again for next season is a positive step moving forward for the club. “There was a genuine buzz around the club when Andrew stepped in as interim coach for the club last season and his impact was immediate,” he said. “I have no doubt that he will define our club moving forward.” Upon joining the Blues program mid-season, the Blues increased their team and individual productivity with Harms at the helm. Blues co-captains Jake MacAulay and Bennie Lewis saw first-hand Harms’ way and spoke of how Coach Harms “redirected the groups focus” while creating a sense of “accountability”. Former NBL representative Bennie Lewis whose scoring, rebounds and assists increased under Harms last season said Harms’ “attention to detail”

was clearly evident and that preseason could not come quick enough, with Lewis adding “I can’t wait for season 2018.” MacAulay, who shouldered much of the point guard duties in 2017, feels “its exciting news for the club and most importantly the playing group. Andrew brings SEABL experience along with his knowledge playing under some great coaches during his playing career.” Having been the starting point guard on Frankston’s most recent conference championship winning team (2009), Harms’ immediate focus is to recreate a culture of high performance. “I have had a long history with the Blues program, being my junior club,” Harms said. “I was fortunate enough to be part of a successful period with the SEABL men’s program as a player, so I’m eager to get the club back to being consistently competitive again leading this time as head coach.” With the club intending on entering development teams in Big V, Harms sees the off-season as an opportunity for the senior men’s program to establish the standards which season 2018 will be built on. Harms will be looking to Frankston’s next generation of senior Blues, with “a considerable amount of youth being provided the opportunity and resources to improve their skills and physical attributes” leading into pre-season. With recruitment also being at the top of his mind, Harms believes “finding the right experienced talent and import combination is critical to helping us back towards playing finals again”.
