No McMansions wanted: Carolyn Payne, the mayor Bryan Payne, Christine Hayden (Peninsula Speaks), Cr Rosie Clark (Briars Ward) and Cr Simon Brooks (Seawinds Ward) fly balloons 11 metres high outside a row of single-storey houses to show the height limits afforded developers under the state government’s already-passed building regulations. Picture: Yanni

Seeing red over house heights Stephen Taylor steve@mpnews.com.au RED balloons floated on 11-metre-long strings above Capel Sound last week to show how high the state government allows houses to go on the Mornington Peninsula without a permit. Mornington Peninsula Shire says the contentious rules imposed last year “without consultation” already apply to 24,000 housing sites on the peninsula. The figure represents a quarter of the

peninsula’s housing stock. The shire says the rules will lead to the proliferation of “three storey McMansions”. The mayor Cr Bryan Payne said Thursday’s balloon demonstration aimed to “alert the Victorian community to the threats to coastal villages posed by future inappropriate development”. “We want to demonstrate what the effect of the state government’s planning rules will be, and we will persist with the campaign until we get what we want,” he said.

“Residents will have no say in the planning process – they are as-ofright.” Villages and townships under threat include Capel Sound, Rosebud, Dromana, Mt Martha, Mornington, Baxter, Somerville, Tyabb, Hastings and Bittern. The shire wants the government to reintroduce the local planning statement which it believes has protected the “unique” character of the peninsula from inappropriate development since the 1970s.

“This planning policy is the thin edge of the Green Wedge and is a clear and present danger to the long-term planning of the peninsula's residential environments because of the domino impact,” Cr Payne said. “This is being experienced in other Melbourne suburbs where existing houses are being demolished and replaced by vastly oversized homes.” The mayor said Thursday’s protest was “excellent”. “Capel Sound is a typical singlestorey location which will suffer the

Airfares, AFL, wine, olive oil and chocolates on shire’s gifts list Keith Platt keith@mpnews.com.au GIFTS over the past three years to Mornington Peninsula Shire staff revealed in the much debated and now public gifts register range from a $1200 trip to Sydney to items valued at $2. Ten pages of the register from 4 September 2015 to 19 December 2017 show 69 gifts, three of which were declined. The register identifies the positions but not the names of staff declaring gifts or receiving offers of gifts. The $1200 “gift” was made by the US-owned Dell EMC information technology company for the shire’s

chief information officer to attend an August 2017 forum in Sydney. The $2 items – a cloth glasses case and a necklace -were made to the mayor and council support officer by the Friends of Los Palos. The timeline of the register released to The Age newspaper under a Freedom of Information request covers July 2016 when shire CEO Carl Cowie and his wife spent time aboard a cruise ship in the Mediterranean hired by prominent businessman and Portsea property owner Lindsay Fox ("Shire boss on Fox ‘party’ cruise", The News 11/12/17). Mr Cowie maintains that he does not have to register the cruise as it was made at no cost to council and during

his annual leave. However, Mr Cowie has listed several items on the register, including an invitation to and his attendance at the 2015 October AFL Grand Final business lunch. The invitation to the lunch was made by the National Australia Bank and the estimated value of the gift is $300. The following year Mr Cowie accepted AFL Grand Final tickets ($100) from McArthur Management Services and “corporate football tickets” ($100) from Optus Australia. The same “gift” from Optus was made to and accepted by the shire’s chief information officer and manager aged disability. Mr Cowie “passed on” tickets ($200 each) to a Cricket Victoria function at the MCG to the infrastructure strategy

manager and an undergraduate engineer. Other gifts accepted by Mr Cowie included two $200 tickets to a March 2016 function held at Southbank by the high end employment consultancy firm which only deals with executives with $150,000 plus salaries, SHK Asia Pacific. He also attended SHK’s Christmas $300 a head lunch in December. The shire’s chief financial officer also attended the lunch. The shire’s corporate counsel accepted tickets ($300) to the Australian Open in November 2017. Gifts offered to but declined by the contracts and procurement officer included vouchers for an “exclusive photographic session” ($600) from Morn-

ington Toyota and an invitation from Custom Fleet to Derby Day. A similar $600 photographic voucher was also declined by the contract auditing and surveillance officer. Other listed “gifts” came from Nepean Planning Consultants (food hampers - $220 - shared by planning department staff); a bottle of Chandon ($30) shared by the valuations team; and two tickets ($100) to the 70th anniversary dinner of Mornington-based planning consultants Watsons; Speedie Development Consultants gave the subdivision officer two bottles of wine ($50). Chocolates, olive oil and a text book are among other gifts listed in the register.

Classics on the road for cancer cause A FLEET of classic cars and motorcycles will travel across the Mornington Peninsula next month in support of children suffering from cancer. The first Ruby’s Ride ‘n’ Roll was held last year by Rachael Ford and Shane McGuinness, who started their own charity Ruby-Rose Rainbow Fund - to raise money for children with cancer. “We lost our daughter to cancer two years ago, She had acute myeloid leukaemia, which is a very aggressive type of blood cancer. We’re fundraising for clinical trials, particularly for this type of leukaemia which one in three children will not survive,” Ms Ford said. “Our daughter was diagnosed at 18 months and she was pretty much in the Royal Children’s Hospital for another 18 months. “There was intensive chemotherapy, a bone marrow transplant and radiation therapy, but apart from her hair you really couldn’t tell she had leukaemia.She was always laughing and smiling. “What we’re looking to fund now is research into a more effective, gentler treatment, more along the lines of immunotherapy rather than that harsh chemo. Through the Ruby-Rose Rainbow Fund we’ve so far raised about $38,000 dollars. “Ruby’s Ride ‘n’ Roll is a fundraiser we are holding for kids with cancer. We’ve teamed up with the Children's Cancer Foundation, and whatever we raise they hold in trust, and will be distributed in consultation with us. If a clinical trial comes up for AML along the lines of immunotherapy, we will support that. Last year we had 70 people and between 30 to 40 cars and motorbikes come through.” The ride follows the coast from Mt Martha to Sorrento, then goes through Flinders to a barbecue lunch at Main Ridge. The it’s Red Hill to Hastings, Mornington and back for an auction at the Dava Hotel, Mt Martha. Details: rubyroserainbowfund.com.au. Registration for Ruby’s Ride ‘n’ Roll is $30 and opens from 9am on Saturday 14 April at the Dava Hotel, Mt Martha. Brodie Cowburn

Kayacker’s fin alert before being rescued Stephen Taylor steve@mpnews.com.au A WESTERN Port fisherman whose kayak started taking water before sinking last week told rescuers he feared not making it home to see his newborn baby and two other children. The 35-year-old, of Noble Park, had been shark fishing. He said he cut his lines when he noticed water rising inside his kayak and paddled as fast as he could towards shore until it sank – taking his wallet, keys and phone with it. He was left floundering for an hour in deep water about three kilometres off Balnarring, 2.30pm, Thursday 22 March. The man told his rescuers he was “dead set scared of sharks” and got the fright of his life when he saw a fin approach immediately after his kayak sunk. It turned out to be a dolphin. The Volunteer Marine Rescue’s TX1 was on scene less than 30 minutes after leaving the Hastings marina. To save time, skipper Neil Cooper cut across Middle Bank – a shallow and dangerous stretch of water – saving up to 15 minutes. They were aided by the Police Air Wing’s helicopter crew which

had spotted the man and dropped two orange smoke canisters to pin-point his position. The TX1 crew had the man on-board within seconds. He was rushed to the Stony Point boat ramp to a waiting ambulance, where he was given the all-clear. “We saw a dolphin, too, and when it dived we thought it was the man going under,” navigator Tim Warner said. Weather conditions were fine with a 10-15 knot breeze. A strong easterly the day before would have made a rescue more difficult, Mr Warner said. “If the Air Wing had not dropped the orange markers we would have found it extremely difficult to find the man, as it’s hard to see just a head in the water. “We are so lucky in Victoria to be able to call on the Police Air Wing to assist in locating people lost at sea. “It was a great outcome in what we were expecting to be a long, drawn-out search.” VMR crews recommend kayakers carry a good quality life jacket and a personal locator beacon. Mr Cooper said: “If he had been wearing a PLB we could have been with him in about 20 minutes.”

Outdoor artists’ works indoors THE Easter weekend is starting indoors for a group of Mornington Peninsula artists who like to paint outdoors. Members of Peninsula Plein Air Painters begin their holiday weekend early with their annual exhibition opening on Thursday, March 29. Artist Miodrag Jankovic will officially open the exhibition being held at the Sorrento Activity Centre daily until Easter Monday.

Members of the group can be seen on any Thursday at such scenic places as Mothers Beach, Mornington, Millionaires Walk, Portsea, Arthurs Seat or Cape Schanck. Plein air painting originated through the French impressionists and notable Australian plein air landscape artists include McCubbin, Heysen, Roberts, Namatjira and Streeton. Today’s artists interpret the landscape in many bold and contemporary ways.

Thursday’s official opening of works by the Peninsula Plein Air Painters will be celebrated with beer, wine and nibbles. Admission is $2 over the four days. The show is open from 10am until 4pm daily from Good Friday and 10pm until 2pm on Easter Monday. Sorrento Activity Centre is at the corner of Melbourne and Queens roads, Sorrento.

Parks under pressure to ‘save’ pier Stephen Taylor steve@mpnews.com.au A GROUP of Dromana men are working to save Dromana pier from rotting away into the sea while ensuring the community retains “a valuable asset”. The group – part of Association for Building Community in Dromana – believes the 185 metre concrete structure, built in 1959 to replace a timber jetty built in the 1860s, is estimated to have about 10 years’ useful life left. Following an “extensive community survey” of residents’ views the group says a new pier needs to be longer so as to reach deep water to allow ferries to berth, and wider to allow space for pedestrians and vehicles to service aquaculture. Their efforts come after $360,000 was spent on restoring and upgrading parts of the pier through the state government’s Boating Safety and Facilities Program, aimed at making it more resilient to storms and providing all-ability access. Significant upgrades included building a lower landing from steel and fibreglass and making the pier sturdier, safer and more resilient to stosms. East Port Phillip and Western Port Area chief ranger Reece Taranto, of Parks Victoria, said the jetty works would make it easier for boats to visit Dromana. “The new landing will be built to better withstand the elements, ensuring continued access to the pier for years to come,” he said. The members of the “Save the Pier”

group say a new, longer pier should be stronger, with space at the end for ferry docking and pop-up kiosks and fresh fish sales, as well as providing a safe swimming and diving enclosure. Initial concept designs for a replacement pier would cost an estimated $20,000. These would be exhibited for public comment and feedback before architectural and engineering plans are drawn up. Mr Taranto said Parks Victoria “did not have any preconceived ideas on what a future Dromana pier would look like”. He said Parks was “interested in hearing ideas from the Dromana ABCD and the broader community” but that the pier was “serviceable for its current purpose” and would be “continually monitored … to ensure safe access can be provided for pedestrians”. Mr Taranto said: “My understanding is that Ray and others from the Dromana ABCD were working with council on a Dromana township precinct master plan. Parks Victoria [has] previously indicated we would be happy for the community to feed into this plan [their views] on the importance of the pier to the town.” The pier, opposite the main shopping area and the aptly-named Pier Street, was much longer in the early 1900s, allowing it to accommodate the bay steamers which did much to promote the town as a tourist destination, such as the Ozone, Hygeia, Edina and Weeroona.

NEWS DESK Bird ‘ranching’ THE federal government is partnering with Moon lit Sanctuary, Pearcedale to build an aviary for young orange-bellied parrots to survive their first winter. Research has shown that a high proportion of the endangered parrots born in the wild fail to survive their first migration across Bass Strait to Tasmania. “With only 50 adults left in the wild, and around 350 adult birds in captivity, we need to increase the breeding population – every bird matters here,” Flinders MP Greg Hunt said. “Using this technique, known as ranching, the birds will be released back into the wild population in Tasmania next summer, increasing the breeding population in 2018-19.” Environment and Energy Minister Environment and Energy Josh Frydenberg said the government had “mobilised more than $6 million for projects to support the parrot since 2014”. “This includes multi-year emergency biosecurity measures, vaccination protocols for controlling pisttacine beak and feather disease - a key threat to the birds - and supporting recovery actions guided by the Orange-bellied Parrot Strategic Action Planning Group.” For details about the orangebellied parrot and another 19 threatened birds go to www.environment.gov.au/biodiversity/ threatened/commissioner

Natural lessons for schoolchildren IT was a windy day with reptiles slithering, veggies growing, insects, bugs and spiders crawling, poo composting, water and plastic recycling and the sounds of frogs croaking. But there was nothing to fear or complain about as it was all part of the 35th Mornington Peninsula Schools Environment Week at The Briars historic property, Mt Martha. Teachers and volunteers over the week (19-22 March) were instilling in more than 2000 schoolchildren the belief that they can make a difference to the world by living a sustainable life. Indigenous leaders taught children about Victorian Aboriginal culture and the youngsters tasted bush tucker and explored Aboriginal bushcraft, language and community. Lionel Lauch shared his knowledge of local food and fibre plants and showed how they are harvested. Fishcare promoted responsible and sustainable fishing attitudes while Tony O’Connor helped students learn the need to protect animal habitat. There were lessons in growing veggies from seeds and seedlings and how to set up a worm farm; fruit and vegies were promoted as healthy snacks. Wildlife enthusiast Andrew Wegener shared his knowledge of the varied and unique animals and ecosystems in Australia while Friends of the Hooded Plover explained why the bird is threatened on Mornington Peninsula beaches.

Rye foreshore”. The council wants a “suitably qualified wildlife handler” to protect and rehouse displaced wildlife when the boundary trees are felled. In Mornington, councillors turned down a proposed “swap” of public and private land, coupled with the redevelopment and extension of the Mornington Village Shopping Centre – which houses a Woolworth’s supermarket. As well as swapping land, the complex’s owner Graham Dixon had proposed to subdivide parts of it, use council land for retail purposes, vary easements, reduce car spaces and put up signs. He said the land swap and related works would improve the safety and function of the Woolworth’s loading dock; retain the competitiveness of the Mornington Village; rationalise land ownership; improve the long-term functionality of the ring road; enhance design and landscaping of the carpark and loading areas; improve the pedestrian network, and make way for sealing areas of the car park. The shopping centre has a leasable floor area

%

of 7936 square metres with 1243 square metres proposed in the swap. The shire’s principal planner Ross Fullerton told the council the planning permit application “cannot be seriously entertained” without the applicant offering more – particularly more car parking spaces. Mr Fullerton said the proposal, for the land at the corner of Main Street, Waterloo Place and Cromwell Street, would not achieve a community benefit in line with the Mornington Activity Centre Structure Plan and could burden the council with future infrastructure costs, particularly for car parking. He said the works were inconsistent with the centre’s present use; would reduce car parking and not provide safe and functional pedestrian connectivity to Main Street and surrounding streets. He said council officers had “significant concerns that the development is seeking to significantly borrow public parking areas to justify the shopping centre expansion”.

A BID to revamp the Woolworth’s supermarket at Rye, as well as put up new shade sails, cut trees and reshuffle car parking areas, has been given the go ahead, while a proposal to “swap” land at its sister store at Mornington has been refused. Other works approved at Mornington Peninsula Shire Council’s Monday 19 March planning committee meeting for the Rye supermarket, on the corner of Point Nepean Road and Hygeia Street, include an eight-metre-high street sign; reducing car parking spaces; adding more rubbish and recycling bins; and installing charging outlets for electric vehicles. The shire’s statutory planning team leader Clyde Brewer said the proposal “demonstrates a high quality urban design while improving the car park in terms of pedestrian safety and vehicle movements [and] sufficiently mitigating impacts to the character of the Rye area”. Objectors had complained about excessive tree removal, proposed colours of the building’s facade and pedestrian safety in the wake of the revamped parking layout which will include resurfacing, changing traffic direction, and adding and removing shade sails in the car park. The shade sails will cover 57 of the 198 spaces (cut from the current 205). Mr Brewer admitted removing much of the vegetation, including along the Point Nepean Road and Hygeia Street boundaries, was of “greater concern” but believed it would be mitigated by improved traffic flow in the car park. Cr Hugh Fraser said the Rye supermarket works provided “an acceptable outcome balancing a very necessary upgrade to the car park with some shade sails and replanting, much safer pedestrian access – particularly disabled access – while retaining mature shady vegetation which attractively connects the car park with the

Colourful map outlines drab problem THE 1ST TOOTGAROOK scouts group used Clean Up Australia Day to spread the message on reducing beach litter – and in the process won a photo competition beating scouts from all over Australia. The 24 children in the group cleaned one kilometre of foreshore over three hours, collecting 32kg of rubbish. They chose 555 pieces to create a colourful map of Australia which won them a digital camera. Joey scout leader Noel Bangs received an email from Clean Up

Australia praised the photograph for its “presentation of the wide range of items collected, and the creativity and effort involved”. The competition highlighted the impact of plastic waste on wildlife and how young people can make a difference by cleaning it up. Youth Clean Up Day 2018 aimed to draw attention to the problem and discover how many small pieces of mainly plastic rubbish can be prevented from degrading the environment. Scouts’ environmental coordinator

Josie Jones said Tootgarook scouts and cubs had been a big help in cleaning up the Woolworths car park and the surrounding block. “We have progressed greatly with Woolworths introducing two internal recycle bins and the shire approving a trial recycle bin and education campaign,” Ms Jones said. “I met with them today as I wanted to ensure we really made a statement with our map of Australia.” Ms Jones saved all the items from the map so that it could be rebuilt later

Southern Peninsula News 27 March 2018


New force to catch drug dealers A NEW police unit will tackle the scourge of drug dealing and trafficking across the Frankston and Mornington Peninsula region. The newly merged unit of Frankston and peninsula-based officers will be based at Mornington Police Station and will share information about dealers to crack down on drug-related crime. Detective Senior Sergeant Michael Lamb will lead the unit and has a simple message for drug traffickers. “If you’re a drug dealer rest assured we’re coming for you,” he said. Detective Lamb, also the Liberal Party preferred candidate for Frankston at November’s state election, said merging resources between Frankston and the peninsula will give police “more scope and ability to run more proactive operations”. “Drugs don’t stop at Humphries Road, dealers don’t respect area boundaries,” he said. Two detective sergeants and 12 investigators are on board to chase down drug dealers. Detective Lamb said crystal meth, also known as ice, is increasingly responsible for violent behaviour by offenders. He said he first noticed the spread of ice when he was a sergeant based at Hastings about ten years ago. “People we regularly had dealings with were not the same — they changed and started behaving violently.” Ice users can go on “four or five-day benders” and some also indulge in crime sprees in stolen cars. “We’ll have surge capacity to act quickly,” Detective Lamb said. He said ice use cuts across demographics and police have noticed some tradies using it since it initially “makes them feel great and they get lots done”. However, ice use soon takes a dark turn and people quickly become addicted amid a personality change for the worse. Police note cannabis growing in homes — vacant and otherwise — still remains on their radar.

Peak hour delays FOUR cars were damaged in a nose-to-tail collision on Bungower Road, Mornington, last week causing “traffic mayhem”. The accidents occurred between Moorooduc Highway and Derril Road, 4pm, Tuesday 20 March – near where six cars were damaged in a similar nose-to-tail, Wednesday 7 February. In that incident, five cars were described as being extensively damaged and one received minor damage. Two drivers were taken to Frankston Hospital. The driver of one of the vehicles was later charged with failing to stay a sufficient distance behind the vehicle in front and fined $238. Acting Sergeant Hugo Baard, of Mornington police, is investigating whether charges will be laid over the latest incident. One of the vehicles involved was a maxi-cab which had to be cleared of passengers – some in wheelchairs.

travelling at 130kph in a 60kph zone. He has been charged him with reckless conduct endangering his two passengers, driving at a dangerous speed and other traffic-related offences, including P-licence conditions offences. He will appear at Dromana Magistrates’ Court, 12 April.

Fake notes

Cars, houses robbed

SHOPS and department stores in Mornington have been warned to watch out for counterfeit notes. Acting Sergeant Hugo Baard, of Mornington police, said the mainly $50 notes, but also $100 and $10, had been found at Woolworths in Main Street. He urged traders to be aware of the fake notes and to contact police if any are found. Long arm of law: Detective Senior Sergeant Michael Lamb heads up new police unit targeting drug dealers across Frankston and peninsula region. Picture: Yanni

Highly-organised drugs operations are “funding organised crime”, Detective Lamb said, alongside “backyard operators” who believe they can produce crystal meth to sell from instructions sourced on the internet. He said police will actively oppose bail when anyone caught in the anti-drugs dragnet appears at court. Neil Walker

Holiday road dangers EASTER and the school holidays are fast approaching, making this a timely reminder to take care on the roads. “Obey the road rules and don’t endanger yourself, your passengers or other road users,” Acting Sergeant Julia Starkey, of Rosebud police, said. On 20 December last year, an 18-year-old Caulfield East man who had held a red-Ps probationary licence for only four months was involved in a single vehicle collision on Browns Road, Rye. His damaged car ended up in trees on the centre median strip. Police estimate the man was

Pedestrian killed AN ELDERLY man has died in hospital as a result of a collision in McCrae. The 91-year-old McCrae man was struck by a turning vehicle in the car park of a Point Nepean Road shopping centre, 9am, Friday 16 March. He was taken to hospital but died on Wednesday night. Police will prepare a report for the coroner. The driver of the turning vehicle, a 61-yearold Rosebud man, was said to be assisting police with their inquiries.

THIEVES ransacked 14 cars outside houses in Mt Martha, overnight Sunday 18 March. Detective Sergeant Alan Paxton, of Somerville CIU, said items including tools, coins and phones were stolen from “mainly unlocked cars” parked in Stanley and Paramount crescents, and on Bruce, Ponyara, and Bradford roads. Thieves hit cars in Sorrento the next night, taking similar items from cars parked in Labuan Street, as well as Coppin, Bowan and Melbourne roads. Many of the cars were said to be unlocked. A car in Point Nepean Road had its number plates stolen. “People are still leaving valuables, such as phones, wallets, iPads and tools, in unlocked cars,” Detective Paxton said. “We are at a loss. People should lock their cars and take their valuables inside.” In another incident on Bruce Road, overnight Sunday 18 March, thieves used keys found inside a car to access a house where a 78-year-old man was sleeping and stole a laptop.

Police join forces in naval operation

Land for giants: Steve Taranto enjoys his giant pumpkins with his children, Pat and Chris. Picture: Yanni

Atlantic giant a hit down under TYABB market gardener Steve Taranto joined the heavyweight prize-winners at this year’s Red Hill Show with pumpkins weight 204 and 175 kilograms. The journey of the giant pumpkins is one that has taken around six months, with Mr Taranto having plated the pumpkins late last year. “We planted the pumpkins in October, this whole process takes a while,” he said. “The type of pumpkin is called an Atlantic giant, so it’s not your regular everyday pumpkin.” “I’ve been growing these giant pumpkins for the past eight years. The kids love it and they love the Red Hill Show. It started out for fun, but I’ve actually gone ahead and entered the

pumpkin in the competition for the past couple of years.” Now that the show is done, Mr Taranto has made the decision of what to do with his two pumpkins, which together weigh over one third of a tonne. “They’ll get fed to the cows,” he said. “We’ve still them got it now, but eventually we’ll break them up and the herd will clean them up. When these pumpkins are fully grown they’re really quite soft and not actually very good for human consumption.” Brodie Cowburn Full Story and more pictures in the April edition of Peninsula Essence magazine.

NAVAL police combined forces with a Victoria Police highway patrol to carry out a road safety operation at HMAS Cerberus, Crib Point. Operation Adiona — named for the Roman goddess of travel and safe return — saw military police and civilian police conduct roadside breath testing and mobile drug testing of both defence members and civilians entering the base as well as registration and roadworthiness checks. Warrant Officer Darren Lonergan said the operation strengthened the relationship between the military and civilian police “in many practical ways and will be followed by more joint operations”. “Working alongside our colleagues from the local civilian police gives our naval police coxswain’s valuable exposure to state policing duties and allows both sides to share knowledge and skills,” he said. “Operation Adiona allowed us to exercise our respective responsibilities for alcohol and drug testing of military and non-military motorists, and helped us assess how we might be able to use the same mobile vehicle registration units as Victoria Police to enhance capabilities within Cerberus. “Just as civilian police maintain an active and familiar presence in a community; our military police will continue a program of community focussed proactive policing geared towards boosting road safety on the Mornington Peninsula which so many defence [force] members call home.” Warrant Officer Lonergan said the only of-

to cowes daystonytrip point - phillip island

fences detected were “several expired vehicle registrations along with one non-environmental noise compliant motorcycle”. Similar joint operations are planned at Hastings, Mornington and Frankston. Commanding Officer of HMAS Cerberus Captain Tim Standen, said it was “crucial that our naval police coxswain’s, military police and Victoria Police can work together, know each other’s remits and pool their resources to keep military members, defence civilians and the wider community safe as we live and work together across the Mornington Peninsula”.

Respect can end domestic violence My heartfelt thanks to the Southern Women’s Action Network (SWAN) recognising International Women’s Day with their guest speaker, [former Australian of the Year] Rosie Batty. Family violence is a national disgrace. One in three women are victims. One in four children are victims. Ms Batty acknowledged the unprecedented Royal Commission into Family Violence established by the Victorian Labor government. Furthermore, its commitment to adopting all recommendations. Rosie spoke of positive engagements within schools, police, health services and corporate businesses on this issue. Changes are beginning. However, our court system, child protective services and media regularly “blame the victim”. Without respectful relationships and equality, family violence will unfortunately continue. Jane Clarke, Rosebud

The owner of the dogs asked if she was all right. My friend nodded and was then left flat on her back on the ground. A young man out walking his children came to her rescue and made sure she was fit enough to return home. I was most upset to hear about this as I am 87 and sometimes dependent. Name and address supplied, Mornington

Centenary celebrations

Last Sunday evening (18 March) at 8.15 I was driving down a very dark Craigie Road, just past Mornington Cemetery, when I became aware of a shadowy “something” just ahead, in the middle of the road. Putting my lights on upper beam, I illuminated a teenage boy, no helmet, clad in dark clothing, skateboarding down the middle of the road. I slowed down and tooted, and was greeted with a barrage of foul language … as he continued beachwards … no attempt made to get off the road. Please parents, I know it is hard, but try and instil some road sense into your kids. I was travelling at 60kph - others go a lot faster and I just hope that this time the boy got home alive. Next time, who knows? Who wants a death on their hands? J Dunn, Mornington

Good happy 100 cheers for the Baxter Primary School centenary 18 March when the pupils, parents and friends celebrated the wonderful achievements of this often forgotten and tucked away farming community. All are to be heartily congratulated on a marvellous effort despite the chilly start to that blustery Saturday and the eventual turnout of hundreds to enjoy the school choir, the Down South Big Band, Rault family duets, animal farm, CFA demonstrations, vintage cars, carnival attractions, historical presentations, a giant birthday cake accompanied by centenarian guests and lots of local art and craft, food and drink services. Not a politician or councillor in sight. Although Watson ward councillor Julie Morris had work commitments, it has been generally accepted Mornington Peninsula Shire policy to offer a mayor or a deputy mayor for such important shire occasions. BRATPAC (Baxter residents and traders progress action committee) did a great job and, as our elected and paid representatives weren’t around, on behalf of us all who enjoyed the community joy and goodwill under difficult weather circumstances, thank you very much for your warm hospitality and community care. Ian Morrison, Mt Eliza, ex town crier for Mornington Peninsula Shire.

Dog park rescue

Say ‘no’ to water

A 91-year-old friend of mine took her wee dog to the leash-free park where she was approached and knocked over by three large dogs.

I have become aware of the proposal by Bayport Quarries wanting to extend the life of quarrying at its Somerville site. After having a win over the

Skateboard madness

PAGE 44

Southern Peninsula News

27 March 2018

local residents and environmentalists opposition to the resumption of quarrying activities at the Somerville site after many years of discontinued work, Bayport is now asking for permission from the EPA to release groundwater ingress into its quarry, into the catchment of Balcombe creek. I hope the EPA is going to discourage Bayport from such a plan. The Balcombe Creek and its tributaries are under enough pressure from urban runoff and siltation and does not need more silt-laden water entering the environment. Rupert Steiner, Balnarring

Inefficient wind So, Joe Lenzo got a letter from his electricity supplier saying that his rates are reduced by five per cent, thus proving that solar and wind is cheaper (“Renewable savings” Letters 20/3/18). No it doesn’t. Joe neglects to state exactly what his tariff is. My power price went up last January and is now 22.83 cents a kilowatt hour, plus GST. My “service fee” - a real killer - is 73.1 cents, plus GST a day. Joe says we need to invest in industries in the future; well, in the past we were a very powerful and wealthy heavily industrialised clever country. For the future, you cannot run a steel mill on solar panels and one -hour capacity lithium batteries. As for wind, to equal a single 625 megawatt generator (like in the La Trobe Valley) you need about 1500 windmills of two megawatt maximum output producing (like Wonthaggi) an average of 0.4 megawatts because of wind variations and calm periods. Each windmill has to sit on about 1000 tonnes of concrete foundations. What is the cost, fiscal and carbon, of all of this? It’s madness. Don’t ever forget that while everybody agrees that the planet seems to be warming (except Europe which was frozen over recently--the worst ever) the theory that carbon dioxide is the cause is just that: a theory. There are other factors contributing to our

climate. Anyway, I think that a warmer planet would be beneficial; and we have to eventually do something with the trillions of dollars worth of coal in the ground. Our country is broke, running on debt and credit. Brian A Mitchelson, Mornington

Pensioners pay already I think the people most disadvantaged by Labor’s dividend imputation policy will be part pensioners; those people who have saved up a little for investments to supplement their pensions and receive a part pension in accordance with the asset value of their savings/investments. A couple who own their own home and have assets/savings of around $400,000 would receive about $580 a week between them in age pension and would look for a safe investment for the $400,000 which would return a reasonable amount to supplement their pension. If they were to put their money into a savings account at about two per cent interest rate they would get about $154 a week to add to their pension; a total weekly income of $734. Not a lot of money. The situation is worse for those with a little more in savings and therefore have already had their pensions reduced by the LNP government’s new cut off point for assets in the means test, and the resultant steeper slope of pension reduction as assets increase. Therefore the pensioners look around for a better return from their $400,000. They cannot afford to buy a unit to let out so they invest half of it in shares of the type that return an average four per cent while accepting the risk of falls in their capital. That gives them a return of $154 a week plus about $51 a week as a tax return because of dividend imputation. This means the couple’s income is: pension $580, plus shares $205, plus bank interest $77; a total of $862 a week. If Labor wins government this couple’s income will be reduced to $811 a week. Age pensioners have already been hit with changes, so why should they be the ones called on to reduce the deficit? James McLoughlin, Balnarring

100 YEARS AGO THIS WEEK...

Brave Frankston soldier hospitalised Compiled by Brodie Cowburn ONE day last week Mr T. Reeves, Frankston, received word from the Defence Departemunt to the effect that his son, Gunner C. Reeves, had been admitted to Sutton Veny Military Hospital, England, on 23/1/18, suffering from gastritis. We trust that Mr and Mrs Reeves will hear better news of their young soldier son, who although only a lad of seventeen, has been fighting nobly; has been badly wounded, and gone back to fight again. *** A MEETING of residents of Frankston was held at the Mechanics on Tuesday to take steps to erect a memorial at Frankston to the memory of the late Sir John Madden. It was unanimously decided that a memorial be erected at Frankston and a strong working committee was formed with power to add to their number. A committee meeting will be held at the Mechanics next Tuesday at 8 o’clock to decide what form the memorial shall take. *** THE death occurred at Frankston on Friday evening last of Mrs Cousins, wife of Mr Benjamin Cousins who for the past seven years has been employed as caretaker at Colonel Grimwade’s, “Marathon”, Mornington road. Death which was of a sudden nature, was due to a heart affection, from which the deceased lady had been suffering for some time.

The late Mrs Cousins, who was 46 years of age, was a daughter of Mr Henry Brown, of Brunswick, and for very many years had been a resident of this district. Great sympathy is felt for Mr Cousins and family in their very sad bereavement. The internment took place at the Frankston cemetery on Sunday, a large crowd following the body to its last resting place. The funeral arrangements were in the hands of Mr H. Gamble Frankston. *** UNDER the auspices of the Frankston Red Cross Society, a grand concert in aid of the repatriation fund will be given in the Mechanics’ Institute on Easter Saturday, commencing at 7 45 p.m. sharp. The programme will be given by Melbourne artists, and has been arranged by the Presbyterian Young Men’s Union. *** A BAZAAR to reduce the debt on the Hastings hall will be held on Easter Saturday and Monday, afternoon and evenings, when there will be nail driving and hat trimming competitions, hoopla, etc, and on Saturday afternoon a baby show will be held, when valuable prizes will be given. The bazaar will be officially opened by Hon. A. Downward at 8p.m. on Easter Saturday. *** A VISIT of inspection of the works in connection with the Peninsula Water Supply was made by mem-

bers of the Frankston and Hastings, Mornington, and Moorabbin Shire councils on Wednesday last. The party made the trip by motor car, and visited the source of supply, and traversed most of the pipe line. A visit to the works where the cement pipes are being made proved most interesting, and general satisfaction was expressed at the progress being made. A full report will appear next issue. *** ADVICE was received in Melbourne by cablegram from Calcutta on Wednesday that the Commonwealth Government’s agents had secured 200,000 bales of grain bags representing 60,000,000 in all. It is anticipated that these will be ample for the 1918-19 Australian harvest if the amount of tonnage available be sufficient to transport them in time. Despatch for Australia may be expected to commence in August and be continued in September and October *** LOVERS of the “light fantastic” had a most enjoyable time on Saturday evening last when a dance was held under the auspices of the Wattle Club in the Mechanics. There was a splendid attendance and the music supplied by Mr Meekin left nothing to be desired. *** THE RECONSTRUCTED MINISTRY. Patriotic citizens are agreed that

at a time of stress like the present, there should be an end of party and that a National Ministry, should hold office. Mr Hughes, Mr Cook and their colleagues made an honest attempt to establish a government fully representative of all sections in the Commonwealth. They failed, because Official Labor stood aloof. In the reconstruction of the cabinet necessitated by the resignation of Lord Forrest, by the departure of Messrs Cook and Hughes for London and, possibly, by the increasing demands made on those who have held office during the trying war years, Mr Hughes and his colleagues have been true to the National ideal. The new members of the cabinet (Messrs Greene, Poynton, Wise and Orchard) represent distinct wings of the National Party. The selection of the new Ministers is satisfactory from another standpoint. It often happens that a weak Ministry buys off a too candid critic, by offering him a portfolio when one has to be placed. Happily the Hughes government has not stooped to that. The temptation was there, for quite recently a little knot of malcontent’s threatened the Ministry. These critics should not be silenced. *** MESSRS Alex Scott o Co. will hold their usual monthly market at Tanti on Monday, April 8th, commencing at 12.30 p.m. when they will offer cattle, sheep, pigs, poultry etc. ***

THE general list of electors for the electoral division of Mornington is now printed, and may be inspected at any post office, railway station, police station and state school within the division, or at the office of the registrar at Mornington. *** SPECIAL Easter Services will be conducted at the Frankston Methodist Church on Sunday next, morning and evening, by the Rev. E. Tonkin. The musical portion will be assisted by Mr G. Ernest Tonkin, of Kyneton. There will be Communion at the conclusion of the morning service. *** THE commandant of the A.I.F. at headquarters in London has cabled to the Prime Minister, stating that confusion has been caused in connection with the mails for the Australian Imperial Force and the American Expeditionary Force owing to the use of the letters A.I.F. and A.E.F., and it has consequently been found necessary to issue instructions to all despatch officers in Australia to enclose all mail matter addressed to Australian oversea forces in army postal bags, including those bearing hospital and civilian addresses. It is now merely necessary in addressing the mail to a soldier to state the number, name, initial and permanent unit with the words “Australian Imperial Force” in full. *** From the pages of the Mornington Standard, 30 March 1918

THE MEANING OF EXISTENCE... AND OTHER SHORT STORIES

A User’s Guide to ‘The Pub Test’ By Stuart McCullough I WAS always good at exams. I would study diligently, prepare meticulously and pretty much do all I could to ensure that when the big day came I could do my very best. However, not everything in this life can be studied for and there are some tests for which you simply can’t prepare. Instead, they are trials that seemingly drop from the sky and you either pass them or you don’t. The Pub Test is one such test. Doubtless, you’ve heard of it. If you’ve never been subjected to it, there’s a very good chance you’ve administered it, even if you’ve never set foot inside a pub. It’s kind of tricky like that. Much like the Force, the Pub Test is something that resides within all of us. It’s an energy that surrounds us and not only helps distinguish between fakery and the genuine article, but can also lift a wounded X-Wing out of a Degobah swamp if needed. (Although, in those circumstances, I’d rather call the RACV.) The Pub Test is all knowing and all-powerful. It is the first and final arbiter of what is good and what is not. Other countries have a ‘reasonable person’ test. It says a lot about us that our equivalent has just ordered a bourbon and coke and a packet of salt and vinegar chips. Then again, perhaps these are the ideal circumstances under which to be reasonable. Imbued with a sense of well-being and bonhomie, it’s just the right moment to see the good in people. Or, at least, it ought to be. But timing is

everything. A Pub Test administered at six o’clock in the evening would invariably yield different results to one conducted at two in the morning. Indeed, the Pub Test at that hour would be more interested in where to get a souvlaki and taxi than a true and fair determination of anything.

Like any kind of assessment, it prompts the question – what happens next? If you pass the Pub Test, do you get a certificate? Where, exactly, within the AQF (Australian Qualifications Framework for those who don’t have Google handy) would such a qualification sit? Presumably,

passing the Pub Test entitles you to continue your study at a higher level. I can only guess that this means being assessed at a tertiary-level drinking house such a nightclub or wine bar. That said, I don’t think I’ve ever heard a proposition being described as passing the ‘wine bar’ test. But despite the somewhat limited options for continuing study, the Pub Test is now more popular than ever. This is largely due to its incredible versatility. The Pub Test can be used to evaluate pretty much anything; from major infrastructure projects through to key moral dilemmas. Granted, the Pub Test has been under threat in recent years from a relative newcomer to the scene – social media. But while social media might be measured in trends, it’s also an environment in which people feel comfortable being the very opposite of reasonable. In fact, it’s encouraged. The more banana-squashingly bonkers you are on social media, the better. It’s for that reason that I feel that while social media may threaten the Pub Test, it will never truly replace it. Granted, there’s also the ‘Sniff’ test but, quite seriously, who wants to abandon their better judgment in favour of an olfactory-led determination of merit? Not me. There’s something quite unsavoury about the very idea of the Sniff Test. There’s the question of proximity for starters, as I think it’s the kind of adjudication that requires some fairly severe leaning in. If this violation of personal space doesn’t bother you, there’s also the fairly unpleasant prospect of catch-

ing a honker full of something truly odious. No sir, the Sniff Test fails the Pub Test so far as I’m concerned. So where do we take the Pub Test from here? Frankly, the sky’s the limit. I can foresee a time when the Pub Test replaces all forms of scholastic measurement. Instead of NAPLAN, children would be required to sit the Pub Test instead. Imagine being assessed at eight years of age only to be informed that you had failed to pass the Pub Test. Somewhat ironically, this could quite a sobering message. But it just might be the thing to get young miscreants onto the straight and narrow. For myself, had it been possible to pull my socks up any further (I used elastic garters – they’re quite helpful), I would surely have done so. I appreciate that I’m being controversial. But I think that it’s time we turned our gaze inwards and thought a little more about how we judge things. Sometimes you need something more robust than instinct alone. Before we determine something to be unsalvageable, perhaps a measure of expertise might help the decision making process. Meanwhile, I’ve decided to do my thesis on the history of the Pub Test and how it has brought us to where we are today. I am, of course, somewhat nervous about how I’ll go. If I’m being honest, my thesis is long and not very pleasant to read. And for those reasons alone, it does not deserve to pass the Pub Test. So be it. stuart@stuartmccullough.com

Champs Langwarrin get up over Mt Eliza PROVINCIAL

By Mr & Mrs IT Gully LANGWARRIN has been crowned Mornington Peninsula Association Provincial Champions after beating Mt Eliza. The Kangas, defending 180, had Mt Eliza reeling at 5/47 at tea on day two after 22 overs, with Lyle House and Justin Grant back in the sheds. Langwarrin skipper Travis Campbell, who’s no stranger to premierships at Edithvale, was on fire for the Kangas snaring 4/25 off 12 overs at the tea break. At the other end, arguably the best all rounder on the Peninsula, Matt Prosser was tweaking some magic of his own, bowling seven overs for a return of 1/4 at the break. Mt Eliza had teenager John Goudge playing a wonderful, patient innings while Ben Tracey was being forced to turn back the clock and play patiently. It still had some work to do. Fast forward two hours and the Mounties had lost their second grand final in as many years, bowled out for 94. Travis Campbell finished with 4/35, Matt Prosser 2/25, Adam Campell 1/11 and Jake Prosser 3/2.

Young Goudge was the final man out controversially trapped in front for 43. Earlier, on day one, Langwarrin won the toss and elected to bat first. Taylor Smith and Matt Prosser opened the innings and despite the fact they won the game off their own bat last week, could manage just a 29-run opening partnership in the big dance. Travis Campbell was out to Justin Grant for 30 before Matt Prosser was brilliantly run out by Nick Baron for 50. This left Andy Johnson and Jake Prosser to resume on Sunday with 3/116 off 63 overs. Facing the final 17 overs of their innings it was an arm wrestle. The Kangas batted at 3 ½ runs an over with Andy Johnson hitting 32 and Simon Parrot hitting 18. Mt Eliza’s Chris Mc Donough bowled 20 overs for 3/67 and skipper Justin Grant bowled 24 overs for a return of 3/43. The final Langwarrin score, given the rain softened the ground, looked defendable, they proved it was. Kangas downed: Langwarrin are Provincial champions after beating Mt Eliza in the grand final, right and below. Pictures: Andrew Hurst

It’s flag for Flinders PENINSULA

By Mr & Mrs IT Gully THERE have been many teams over the journey who have had nightmares in local cricket. Unfortunately for Main Ridge skipper Nick Jewell, that nightmare has become a habit. Looking for a change of luck, Jewell crossed to Main Ridge after losing a couple of grand finals at Sorrento. Despite the unquestionable talent the bad luck continued to follow him. Jewell’s Main Ridge finished day one after 57.3 overs on 8/74. Shaun Foster top scored with 36 (Foster’s old team Carrum was defending 7/200 against Dromana who were 3/57 at tea on day 2). Nick Jewell was the second highest

run scorer on 12. With 23.3 overs still to bat on day two, Main Ridge could add just two more runs to its total, bowled out for 76. Matty Burns was superb once again with the ball, snaring 4/34 off 19 overs, while Dwayne Field snared 3/15 and Max Royal helped himself to 3/10. At tea on day two, Flinders was in a commanding position at 2/69. We didn’t have to wait for much longer for both captains to agree to pull up stumps after Flinders passed the total, 3 wickets down and with Tommy Clements in total control. Finders winning the flag was their first since 2011-12 and will be their first time in Provincial since the mid1980s..

Day three on cards after rain halts grand final play DISTRICT

By Mr & Mrs IT Gully TORRENTIAL rain may not have affected first XI matches in all other divisional grand finals, but all roads will lead to Skye this Saturday afternoon when Baden Powell and Heatherhill finish their grand final battle. The run-ups were unplayable and despite best efforts to at least start the match, both captains agreed to start the grand final fresh on Sunday. At tea on the second day (Sunday) Baden Powell who won the toss and elected to bat, were 2/68 with Rhys Elmi ticking the scoreboard over nicely.

Baden Powell legend John Harrison made the call that 170, given the ground conditions, would be a very good score to defend. At that point, Baden Powell was on track. One thing Harrison may have forgotten at that stage was that Heatherhill boasted the in-form player of the competition, Steven O’Donnell. At the time of going to press Baden Powell with 10 overs remaining was 6/175.

Match still on: Baden Powell and Heatherhill will face each other again for a third day of play to decide the District championship. Picture: Andrew Hurst Southern Peninsula News 27 March 2018

Lions wield the willow SUB-DISTRICT

By Mr & Mrs IT Gully TEN overs could mean the difference between a win and a loss, even in local cricket. At stumps on day one of the sub-district grand final between Dromana and Carrum, Dromana was in total command with the score at 5/140 after pushing through 70 overs on the rain-affected first day. For the Lions, several players got starts with the bat, but none of them pushed on to make a significant dent on the scoreboard. The bonus for the Lions was that they

resumed day two with Jake D’Atri and Dylan Stead not out on 36 and 13 respectively. From the outset of day two the Lions had intent and as such blasted 60 runs in the final 10 overs to put them in a commanding position in the grand final. Stead was especially damaging before the Lions finished at 7/200 off their 80 overs. At tea on day two, Dromana had lost three quick wickets before steadying to be 3/57, Jedd Savage and Jack Fowler unbeaten at the crease. At the time of going to press Dromana was 9/131 with Jack Fowler back in the sheds, out for 69.

Batting on: The District grand final between Baden Powell and Heatherhill is still to be decided after a rain delay. Picture: Andrew Hurst

Frankston Pines, Somerville lead the way SOCCER

By Craig MacKenzie FRANKSTON Pines and Somerville Eagles were the only local teams to start the 2018 State League season on a winning note. Pines head coach Paul Williams gave starts to Mitch Landers, Naseer Mohammed, Aaryn Rix and CJ Hodgson and used their pace and ability to transition quickly to hurt home team Heatherton United on Saturday eventually running out a 2-0 winner in their State 2 SouthEast contest. Heatherton was caught on the break half a dozen times with former Pines’ keeper Alfonso Cardinale making a fine save to deny Landers from converting Pines’ best first-half chance. It took a low strike from Rix in the 57th minute to break the deadlock but Heatherton looked set to equalise 10 minutes later when young Pines keeper Jarrod Nardino gave the ball away and brought down Heatherton striker Ali Senad inside the area. But the youngster held his nerve and saved the resultant penalty attempt and it was game over in the 85th minute after Cardinale brought down Landers and the referee pointed to the spot. Hodgson converted to secure the points for Pines. Somerville Eagles beat Casey Panthers 4-3 away from home in Saturday’s opener to the State 5 South season. Two clinical finishes from Louis Griffiths, a fierce strike by Sam Beadle from just outside the area and a stunning free-kick by Matthew Curd secured all three points for the visitors. “Casey Panthers pushed us all the way and despite finishing with two centre-forwards playing in the defensive line and having Hayden Taylor sent off, we hung on to get a massive result,” said Somerville player-coach David Greening. “We were without nine of our senior squad for various reasons so I was hugely proud of the lads that played today with a couple of them having to play out of position.” Two second-half penalty saves by Robbie Acs couldn’t stop Langwarrin losing 2-0 to Moreland City in their NPL2 clash at Lawton Park on Saturday. The first of three Moreland penalties was successfully converted by Jesse Makarounas in the 15th minute after a poorly timed lunge by Luke Burgess had felled Moreland striker Lisandro Paz inside the area. Andy McIntyre’s sliding goal-line clearance in the 28th minute stopped

Moreland going further ahead. The best chance of the half fell to Langwarrin striker John Kuol in the 38th minute when he broke clear into a one-on-one only to be denied by the foot of advancing Moreland keeper Liam McDowell. In the 60th minute Christopher Cristaldo got clear on the right of the Langy area but shot straight at Acs and a soaring header from Kuol following a Paul Speed corner in the 70th minute thumped against the crossbar and was cleared. But Langy failed to clear from a corner in the 81st minute and Paz volleyed home from close range to complete the scoreline. Langy striker Liam Baxter received a second caution in the 91st minute and was sent off. Mornington’s bid for another State 1 South-East title started poorly when it went down 1-0 to Manningham United Blues at Dallas Brooks 27 March 2018

Park on Saturday. A straight red for veteran Mornington striker Wayne Gordon in the 18th minute had the home side facing an uphill battle. The decisive moment in this contest came in the 23rd minute when a cross from the left came off the shoulder of James Newman as he attempted a header and beat Mornington keeper Liam Little. The 10 men pressed for an equaliser in the second half but Sammy Orritt’s volley from the left of the area sailed over. Mornington came closest to scoring when a superb Curtis Hutson cross in the 77th minute from the left picked out big Max Etheridge whose goal-bound touch was instinctively tipped onto the bar by Manningham keeper Stefan Taleski before being scrambled clear for a corner. Peninsula Strikers went down 3-1 away to Brandon Park in their re-

arranged State 2 South-East fixture on Saturday. Maxim Avram (2) and Sam Nikolovski scored for Brandon Park with Ryan Wilson scoring for Strikers. State 3 South-East promotion candidates Monbulk Rangers and Skye United clashed at Monbulk Recreation Reserve on Friday night with the home team winning 2-1. Scores were level at the break but five minutes into the second half Monbulk captain Geordie Scott broke into a one-on-one and put the hosts ahead. Skye began to panic for the remainder of the half as chances went begging and a clinical finish from Arash Sadeghi in the 75th minute gave Monbulk a two-goal buffer. Skye’s Mitch Blake pulled one back five minutes from time to ensure a tense finish but despite Skye’s pressure, it couldn’t grab the equaliser. Teenage midfielder Jack Gallagher signed with Skye last week and scored in the reserves before coming off the bench in the second half to replace Chris Driver. A pre-game injury to Mark O’Connor had sidelined the Irish midfielder whose place in the starting line-up was taken by Driver. Two other Skye midfielders are injured. Cameron Leopold had to come off against Monbulk with a broken toe while youngster Jordan Redburn was unavailable as he battles to overcome a hip injury. Defender Johnny Andrinopoulos remains sidelined by an Achilles strain. Off the field, Skye fared far better last week when local state government MP Sonya Kilkenny announced a $945,000 upgrade to the clubrooms at Skye Recreation Reserve. Seaford United looks set for another testing season after being thumped 6-0 by Brighton in their State 3 South-East contest at North Seaford Reserve on Saturday. Dylan Waugh had flirted with joining Strikers during the pre-season but returned to the fold and rejoined Seaford last week but was unable to have an impact in what was a dismal opening-round display by Paulo Pinheiro’s men. Three goals in six minutes allowed Brighton the luxury of a 3-0 halftime lead and effectively ended the contest. Jared Ekkel had spent the opening half-hour strolling about in midfield and distributing the ball at his leisure and in the 34th minute his first strike was parried by young Seaford keeper Austin Kearney who was helpless to

stop Ekkel’s close-range follow-up attempt. Two minutes later Michael Knott turned Daniel Mota inside out then struck a low shot past the diving Kearney to make it 2-0. As if to rub salt into Seaford’s wounds the move down Brighton’s right in the 40th minute was clearly offside but play continued and a low cross to the far post set up Nick Bale for a tap-in. Bale repeated the dose from close range in the 53rd minute to make it 4-0 then a simple inter-passing move involving Louis Hughes, Bale and David Nicholas ended with Nicholas in a one-on-one with Kearney and making no mistake from 10 metres for number five. Ekkel’s low shot from just outside the area in the 72nd minute made it 6-0 and a combination of inept finishing and a couple of good reflex saves from Kearney saved Seaford from an absolute shellacking. “I think it’s going to be a long, hard season,” said a Seaford insider at the final whistle and no-one disagreed. Baxter’s State 4 South campaign got off to a disastrous start with a 7-2 home loss to Monash Uni on Saturday. The mood at Baxter was upbeat leading into the clash after young gun Travis Ernsdoerfer returned last week from an NPL2 foray with Langy’s under-20s. But by half-time Monash led 3-1 and went on to record a resounding victory. Izaak Barr and Dan Disseldorp scored for Baxter. Southern United welcomed back Elisabeth Robers last week but lost Sunday’s NPLW clash with Box Hill United 10-1 at Monterey Reserve with Casey Aarons scoring for Southern. The under-12s won 2-0 with goals from Jasmine Smith and Stella Rogers; the under-14s won 9-0 with goals from Rhys McKenna (3), Candy Kilderry (3), Alex Jones, Danica Vukcevic and Alessandra Davis; the under-16s drew 2-2 with goals from Lily Aitken and Monique Lapenta while goals from Mackenzie Hicks and Jess Beddows couldn’t stop the under-19s from going down 4-2 in a much-improved performance. There are no State League or NPLW games over the Easter weekend but Langwarrin, Mornington and Strikers are in action in the fourth round of the FFA Cup. SATURDAY, 3pm: Langwarrin v North Geelong (Lawton Park), Mornington v Peninsula Strikers (Dallas Brooks Park).16s 11.40am, U19s 1.15pm).

Dromana v Rye rivalry set for Good Friday

Mitchell ‘rapt to be back’ By Ben Triandafillou BLAIRGOWRIE Boxer Jayde Mitchell returned in winning form on Saturday 17 March defeating South American boxer Ariel Alejandro Zampedri at the Melbourne Pavilion. Mitchell proved that his neck injury was no longer an issue, moving freely around the ring, and claiming victory in the third round of the fight. “The neck held up fine. I got clipped a couple of times and it held up brilliantly so there’s no issue at all and I couldn’t be happier with the way the night went,” Mitchell said. “It was all about recovering from the surgery and being comfortable and confident in the fight. “I’m absolutely rapt to be back and now its full steam ahead towards that world title.” Mitchell has now climbed to number 11 in the world rankings and will be moving back down

DROMANA Football Club will host the annual Good Friday clash against Rye Football Club on Friday 30 March. The “local derby” between the two division two sides will be played at Dromana Recreation Reserve with the O’Rourke-Matthews Shield up for grabs. Dromana Football Club president Chris Strange said it will be a great local rivalry and promises to be a great day. “We just missed out on finals last year and got put into Division Two this year so we are probably at the top of the hill when it comes to this division,” Strange said. “Rye has recruited well this year so it’s going to be a great match.” Dromana will have two former New Zealand AFL players joining their line-up this year with the signings of Andrew Howison and William Gregson along with ex-Rye player, Ben Holmes. “It’s his first season back, he’s a fantastic player and it’s great that he’s joined us,” Strange said. “It will be an interesting outing for him.”

Rye will need to turn the tables on Dromana, having been defeated by them in the last game of the season, but Rye Football Club president Mick O’Rourke is optimistic the club can make amends. “We failed miserably in the last game of the season. We went down by about 15 to 16 goals so we will be out looking for revenge,” he said. “I think we will have a better side than last year. We have a few new recruits and a lot of young players from last year who have another 12 months of experience. “We’ve had good numbers on the track at training so things are looking pretty good. “We can get a good crowd being Good Friday and Dromana always seem to put on a good showing so it should be a good day.” Being Good Friday, a fare with a seafood marquee will be there on the day with the local CFA also collecting money for the Royal Children’s Hospital Appeal. Ben Triandafillou

to the super-middleweight division to defend his titles and aim towards a shot at the world title. “We expressed our interest in fighting Tyron Zeuge who’s defending his title this weekend,” he said. “We’ve touched base with the world champion and it’s looking like a good chance that we may land that later in the year.” Mitchell’s return against Zampedri was all about making sure his neck could hold up and now with the confidence that he is back to his best, is also looking at a fight for the Commonwealth title. “It’s just speculation at the moment but it would be a dream come true to fight for the Commonwealth title,” Mitchell said. “I’d love to fight for the Commonwealth title before going towards a world title honours and join the likes of many great champions who have come before me.”

Father-son combination secure national title

Peninsula surfers ride wave to nationals THE WOMEN’S Peninsula Surfriders are set for the national championships next month after taking out the Victorian and South Australian Sailor Jerry Surftag Qualifier at Rye Back Beach on Saturday 17 March. The Women’s Peninsula team (29.69) consisting of Hannah Trigger, Vee Bieber, Claudia Daymond, Nina Sinclair and Charlee West charged the chunky conditions to finish nearly 20-points clear of Torquay (10.33). Peninsula surfrider Charlee West was stoked with the victory and now has her sights set on the national championships at the Gold Coast on Friday 27 April. “It’s so special to be a part of this team representing the club and to win the first ever Women’s Surftag in Victoria is really cool,” West said. Former Winter Olympic snowboarder Hannah

Trigger posted the highest score in the final with a run of 10.50 and will head up north with the Women’s group alongside the Peninsula Surfriders men’s division who grabbed second at the Qualifiers. The men’s division pushed Torquay all the way to the last wave with club president and fifth surfer Lachy McDonald scoring 18.17 in the final stages of the decider to finish 6 points behind to claim second spot. McDonald said it’s great to have a large squad heading up towards the Gold Coast. “Winning the Women’s division and coming second in the Men’s is a great effort from our club,” McDonald said. “We were one good wave short of the win today in the Men’s and look forward to testing ourselves against the country’s best.” Ben Triandafillou

THE father-son combination of Jamie and Sam Hodic, from Crib Point, has created history on Sunday 18 March as they guided the Melbourne Glacier’s Ice Hockey team to their first national title. Jamie, who took up coaching for the first time this season, and his son Sam, who captained the under-21’s side, created a memorable comeback, from last to first, to claim gold in the grand-final at the O’Brien Group Arena in Melbourne. Having finished at the bottom of ladder for the 2017/18 season, the Glaciers scored a wildcard entry into the finals series having been the hosts for the national finals and received automatic entry. The Glaciers had won four matches, including two shootouts, from their 16 games throughout the season and headed into the finals as an “outsider”. While the side had to turn around their form from their season, Sam was still pretty confident the side could be competitive against the states. “We were lucky to have been in the finals to be honest,” Sam said. “We had a bad season because we never really had a full squad and some people were complaining about us even being in the finals.” “Some of our team were out for suspensions, other people were injured and some other players had full-time work commitments during the season so we never really had it all together. “The semis were the first time we had our full squad. I had a feeling that any team can win on any given day but it was whether we could put it all together.” The Glaciers started strong and won their first three matches in the finals series before securing two more victories in the Semi-Finals on the Saturday, defeating Brisbane Blitz and the Perth Sharks in shootouts. Sam said the semi-finals could have gone any way as the shoot-outs are seen as basically a “lottery pick”. “No one ever has a clear idea on who the winner will be in a shootout,” he said. “Before the shootout, you go through five minutes of overtime and most games finish there but

we had to go through and play shootouts in both of our semis. “It was obviously pretty lucky to win them both but I was pretty confident as we have the best goalie and at least six good shooters so we had a pretty strong chance.” The Glaciers went through to defeat the favourites, Adelaide Adrenaline, in the grand final on the Sunday and claim Melbourne Glaciers first ever trophy. Glaciers coach Jamie Hodic said it was pretty amazing for Melbourne after finishing last in the season to walk away with the national title. “I’ve competed more as a player than a coach so I just wanted to get them together and told them ‘in the end it’s our home and we shouldn’t let them push us around’,” he said. “If we had lost just one match we would have been kicked out but when it came to the crunch we didn’t lose a game. “We couldn’t afford to have any penalties against us and they really stood up and were just really disciplined. “They played well beyond their years.” Ben Triandafillou
