Room for science to look to future EASTBOURNE Primary School’s new science centre was officially opened last week, as part of Education Week celebrations, which this year took up the theme: “Scientists do amazing things!”. The new science centre will be used by the school’s science club during lunchtimes and will also be the venue for the Peninsula Connections after-hours extension program for students across the Mornington Peninsula area who have an aptitude and interest in science. State Education Minister Martin Dixon said science was set to play a critical role in Victoria’s future. “By 2020-21, nearly 90,000 scientists will be employed in Victoria and nearly 255,000 people will be employed in jobs such a medicine, health care, agriculture and architecture for which science skills are essential,” he said. “Education Week is the ideal time for parents and the wider community to learn about our great schools and early years services.” “There’s a lot of great science-related initiatives taking place in Victorian schools, and our six specialist science and maths centres are marvellous facilities which I hope all school children have the opportunity to visit, or receive a visit from via the centres’ outreach programs.” Amazing science: (from left) Lashay Linaker, Ella Dunston, Mackenzie Sommer with Rosebud Secondary College science teacher Yuri Setnik (back) conduct experiments in Eastbourne Primary School’s new science room.

Walkout halts debate By David Harrison A COUNCILLOR walkout forced the abandonment of the Special Purposes Committee meeting held on 19 May when two confidential items came up for debate. Veteran council watchers could not recall any previous councillor walkout at Mornington Peninsula Shire. It was a dramatic and pivotal moment in shire events. The meeting had reached agenda item 3, “Confidential Items”. The minutes record that “Cr Fraser and Cr Rodgers left the meeting before consideration of this item and did not return”. Hugh Fraser and Tim Rodgers represent Nepean ward.

The meeting was then adjourned at 5.50pm. The minutes state that “Cr. Colomb left the meeting at 5:50pm during discussion of this item and did not return”. Bev Colomb is a Briars ward councillor. The minutes continue: “Due to no quorum, the Special Purposes Committee Meeting lapsed at 6:04pm.” It is not known what subject the confidential items covered. But it would not be surprising if one item involved the highly contentious Southern Peninsula Aquatic Centre – possibly the only matter divisive enough to spark a response as unprecedented and extraordinary as a councillor walkout. Absent from the meeting were coun-

cillors Lynn Bowden, Graham Pittock and Frank Martin, who resigned from council the following day due to ill health. The walkout meant only five councillors remained in the chamber – Antonella Celi, David Gibb, Anne Shaw, Andrew Dixon and David Garnock – one short of a quorum. Section 85 of the Local Government Act deals with lack of a quorum at council meetings. It gives the local government minister or a council’s chief executive officer power to require all councillors to attend a “call of the council” meeting. If a councillor does not appear within 30 minutes of the scheduled starting

time for such a meeting, or does not remain at the meeting, the council CEO “must immediately advise the Minister in writing”, the act states. The minister may then order that “the councillor is incapable of remaining a councillor”. These provisions are broadly aimed at preventing continued disruption of council business by recalcitrant councillors. It is beyond contemplation that councillors Fraser, Rodgers and Colomb would not attend a call of the council meeting, or would walk out of one. It is highly improbable that shire CEO Michael Kennedy would resort to calling such a meeting after just one, albeit

dramatic, such occurrence. What is certain that the trio were so offended by, and opposed to, the subject matter in the confidential item that they acted to highlight it. While they cannot reveal confidential information without breaching the law, matters such as this have a habit of becoming public.

By Stephen Taylor IMAGES of musician Paul Kelly will help make the Mornington Peninsula Regional Gallery an even more interesting place to visit until 20 July. An exhibition of portraits of the songster will take over the gallery walls and intrigue fans and art lovers alike. Paul Kelly and the Portraits National Portrait Gallery Touring exhibition showcases his performance persona and the more elusive aspects of his character. The exhibition presents a multifaceted portrait of the artist over his career. Known as ‘the people’s poet’, Kelly’s portraits are by artists and leading music photographers. Kelly’s ‘bread and butter’ is performing publicly. His songs are considered by many as ‘’hymns of the Australian psyche’’, the gallery says. However, many of the photographers and artists in the exhibition speak of his shyness and reticence. Born in Adelaide in 1955 but Melbourne-based, Kelly tours nationally and internationally. His most recent album, Spring and Fall, was released in October 2012 along with the feature-length documentary, ‘Paul Kelly: Stories of Me’ based on what he terms his ‘mongrel memoir’ How to make gravy. The exhibition features two paintings, 17 photographs, one lithograph and a new screen-based portrait commissioned by the National Portrait Gallery. It also shows four short films by Shark Island Productions which ex-

Three amigos: (from left) Dunkley MP Bruce Billson, Prime Minister Tony Abbott and Flinders MP Greg Hunt dined with Liberal Party members in Mornington at a post-budget party fundraiser. Pictures: Yanni

PRIME Minister Tony Abbott made a flying visit to the Mornington Peninsula two days after the federal budget was unveiled. Mr Abbott was not on a mission to make the case to the voting public that his government’s controversial cost-cutting budget was for the longterm economic good of the nation, preferring to address Liberal Party supporters behind closed doors. The PM attended an evening postbudget Liberal Party fundraising dinner at Mornington Racing Club on Friday 16 May. The party faithful paid $95 each to attend a ‘Post-Budget Dinner’ “hosted by” Flinders MP Greg Hunt

and Dunkley MP Bruce Billson with Mr Abbott a guest speaker. Non-Liberal Party members could pay $125 to attend the dinner, with all money raised on the night making its way into party coffers. A two-course meal was served up as Mr Abbott dished out his thoughts on “staying the course” to try to get the nation’s finances back into surplus. The function was held in the Mornington Racing Club’s Gunnamatta Room which can seat up to 550 guests for a banquet booking. The News understands the dinner was a sell-out, raking in tens of thousands of dollars for the Liberal Party.

FRANKSTON

Mr Billson said he appreciated the Prime Minister taking the time during “a very busy week” to visit the peninsula and speak to “those interested in hearing him talk about the budget”. He said the event was “keenly priced” to allow as many people as possible to attend. Post-budget dinners to raise funds for political parties are an annual tradition, with Labor Party opposition leader Bill Shorten also chowing down with party members in Canberra to raise money after he gave his budget reply speech on Thursday 15 May.

Plan Melbourne ‘good news’ for peninsula By Stephen Taylor THE thrust of Plan Melbourne – released last week by the state government - is to coordinate population and housing growth with employment and transport planning on a state-wide basis. And the strategy is ‘’very positive’’ for the Mornington Peninsula, according to mayor Antonella Celi. Its local focus is on commitment to a permanent urban growth boundary, development of the Port of Hastings, support for protection of high-quality agricultural land and ensuring the environmental qualities of Western Port and Port Phillip are protected. “Our residents love the Peninsula as it is, they support appropriate development and new opportunities, particularly for young people, but they want to ensure the special look, feel and function of the Peninsula - the things that make us different from suburban Melbourne - are well protected, ‘’ she said. Plan Melbourne’s premise is that Melbourne has grown rapidly over the past decade, and by 2051 it is estimated a population of 7.7 million will require around 1.6 million extra houses. It will be an ageing cohort, too, meaning future housing supply will need to take into account the changing needs of households for different types of accommodation over a lifetime. Even with a 30-year supply of urban-zoned land on Melbourne’s fringes, the plan says this is no longer sustainable to accommodate most of our growth by expanding outwards. ‘’We will partly accommodate future

growth with medium- and high-density development in defined areas in the existing urban area in designated urban-renewal precincts,’’ the plan says. Later, more housing will be built closer to jobs, transport and services through the zoning system and other mechanisms. The plan says housing affordability

varies significantly across Melbourne and growth in house prices has outpaced the growth in incomes. ‘’Our plan is to encourage greater diversity in housing types and access to more affordable housing options.’’ Transport is the key as it underpins the liveability, efficiency and productivity of cities.

CEO queried over ‘secret’ item By David Harrison COUNCILLOR Hugh Fraser has questioned shire CEO Michael Kennedy’s decision to designate as confidential an item included in a council meeting held on 19 May. Cr Fraser, a barrister, claims there was “no reasonable basis” under the Local Government Act to make the item confidential. He has also queried placing the item on the agenda of the 19 May meeting, claiming this placement “did not comply” with a 2012 council resolution. Cr Fraser seeks to have the confidential item discussed publicly at the council meeting to be held on 10 June. He has lodged a notice of motion that was due to be discussed at the council meeting on Monday 26 May. The matter is difficult to report because the contested item was, and re-

mains, confidential. But clearly it was controversial, sparking the first walkout from a shire council meeting that anyone can recall. The meeting minutes record that councillors Fraser, Tim Rodgers and Bev Colomb “left the meeting … and did not return”, forcing abandonment of the meeting for lack of a quorum. The contentious item was thus not discussed at that meeting. The notice of motion’s “non-compliance” argument refers to a March 2012 council resolution regarding the Southern Peninsula Aquatic Centre. This was the meeting at which the SPA was first formally located on the Rosebud foreshore. Later, land was bought at Wannaeue Place as an alternative site. Then last December councillors voted to return the SPA to the foreshore. The 2012 meeting resolved “that

Council holds all [SPA] meetings ... at the Rosebud Memorial Hall [or] the Rosebud Council Chamber ...”. Cr Fraser argues that the 19 May Special Purposes Committee Meeting was held at Mornington, thus not complying with the resolution that the SPA only be discussed at meetings held at Rosebud. Cr Fraser’s argument on the legal validity of designating the item as confidential is near-impossible to fathom because the matter was heard in camera. Clearly it involves the SPA. The “Confidential information” section of the Local Government Act, S.77, details the means by which information is designated as confidential. But, in the absence of more specific information, this section does not help specify or illuminate Cr Fraser’s argument. Discussion of Cr Fraser’s motion was almost certain to be held in camera.

‘’The key transport challenges for Melbourne are to ensure sufficient commuter capacity on public transport and road systems, and to ensure that Victoria maintains its competitive advantage in freight and logistics.’’ The plan says a growing Melbourne will need to be able to provide an extra 10.7 million daily public transport trips by 2050 on top of the 14.2 million trips today. This means adding critical links to the network, getting greater efficiency out of existing infrastructure and increasing reliance on public transport. City-shaping transport projects such as the East West Link, the Melbourne Rail Link (including the Airport Rail Link), CityLink-Tulla widening - and the development of the Port of Hastings - are expected to transform the efficiency and capacity of the network. The plan also includes major new programs of investment in road efficiency, expanded public transport services and improved cycling and walking paths. Cr Celi said that while the Peninsula faces ‘’its own unique challenges’’, the plan provides the opportunity to ‘’shape future planning for the Peninsula in a way that responds to the issues and values that came out most strongly in the council’s Plan Peninsula consultations with the community held last year”. She said the shire had “worked closely with local communities in informing the government about our future aspirations’’. “There is a firm commitment to the introduction of the Mornington Peninsula Planning Statement that recog-

nises the distinct role and importance of the Peninsula to the whole of Melbourne,’’ she said. The council has already approved the draft Planning Statement, which Cr Celi said ‘’expresses our community’s vision of the Peninsula being ‘near to, but not part of, Melbourne and its accelerating growth’, as reflected by community input during the council’s Plan Peninsula consultation program’’. “The Peninsula plays a range of complementary roles in tourism, recreation, agriculture and manufacturing, but our community is clear that we are not ‘suburbia’, and don’t want to be. The council’s input into Plan Melbourne reflects what the community told us.’’ Plan Melbourne also emphasises the primary role of local government in planning for local areas, including neighbourhood centres and major activity centres on the Peninsula. The ‘new’ Plan Melbourne points out that Melbourne’s projected population growth is 4.3 million to 7.7 million by 2051 - rather than the 6.5 million in the earlier version. This, in turn, has increased the projected demand for housing to more than 1.6 million new dwellings over the next 37 years. It aims to see more of Melbourne’s future housing growth in, or near, existing areas of high job concentrations and/or future employment potential. These National Employment Clusters include Dandenong, and metropolitan activity centres, including Frankston. “Plan Melbourne is consistent with this position, and therefore this is a policy statement we can well support,” Cr Celi said.

Councillor ‘retirement’ triggers ward by-election by year’s end RED Hill Ward councillor Frank Martin announced his retirement after six years on Mornington Peninsula Shire Council last week. A council media statement stated Cr Martin advised mayor Antonella Celi and CEO Dr Michael Kennedy on Tuesday (20 May) of his decision to retire, effective immediately, due to recent poor health. Cr Celi said Cr Martin had made a significant contribution to both his ward and the broader Mornington Peninsula community during his time on council. “Frank has been a wonderful contributor to Council and a dedicated representative of his ward,” Cr Celi said. “On behalf of my Council col-

leagues and the community, I thank him for his contribution and wish him a happy and healthy future.” Cr Martin was elected to Red Hill Ward in 2008 and re-elected in 2012. He served as mayor in 2011-12. Shire officials had previously told The News Cr Martin would return to council this month (‘Red Hill Ward councillor due back after long absence’, The News, 20/5/14) A by-election will be held to fill the vacancy in the Red Hill Ward. The by-election must be held by August this year, according to local government guidelines. See ‘Council poised for new era’ article on page 13.

Rosebud Hospital praised but cuts on way By Stephen Taylor ROSEBUD Hospital was playing its part in reducing Victoria’s elective surgery waiting list which has fallen significantly over the past year, state Health Minister David Davis said last week. He said the hospital has had a “healthy drop’’ in the number of patients waiting for surgery. A performance report shows a number of key areas where the Rosebud Hospital has improved. These include: Fewer patients on the elective surgery waiting list – from 165 at the end of the March 2013 quarter to 74 at the end of March 2014. Treated 257 patients from the elective surgery waiting list in the March quarter, up on the 154 waiting list admissions a year earlier. Provided operations within the benchmark 30 days for 100 per cent of the hospital’s 40 Category 1 urgent elective surgery patients in the March quarter. Provided operations within the benchmark 90 days for 90 per cent of the hospital’s Category 2 urgent elective surgery patients in the March quarter – up from 62 per cent last year. Provided operations within the benchmark 365 days for 97 per cent of the hospital’s Category 3 elective surgery patients in the March quarter – above the state average of 91 per cent. Completed the transfer of 94.2 per cent of patients who arrived at the hospital by ambulance in the March quarter within the target of 40 minutes, up on its 90.4 per cent transfer rate in March 2013 and better than the state-

wide benchmark of 90 per cent. Received 607 ambulance arrivals at

the busy emergency department in the three months to the end of March – up from 597 arrivals in the December quarter. Admitted 2778 patients in the three months to the end of March – up from 2514 admissions in the December quarter. The Rosebud Hospital is at the heart of the Rosebud Health Hub – a new health initiative for residents at the southern end of the peninsula. It offers a comprehensive range of healthcare services from the Rosebud Hospital site, including community health, mental health, allied health and dental health services. The hospital has 30 acute and 30 subacute beds, four surgical beds serv-

ing one operating theatre, nine renal dialysis chairs, three cardiac monitored beds and four chemotherapy chairs. The emergency department has nine cubicles and a fast track area. The hospital provides care and treatment for both admitted and out patients. Serving more than 130,000 residents on the southern peninsula, the hospital’s target population swells dramatically during holiday periods, with the peak summer period attracting more than 100,000 holiday makers to the peninsula. Elsewhere, the new emergency department at the revamped Frankston hospital will be three times the size of the old one with three new wards. It was of special interest to Mr Davis who last week inspected the four-storey hospital redevelopment due to be com-

pleted next year. The $80.9 million works are said to be ‘’on time and on budget’’. Standing on top of the building Mr Davis said: “The Frankston Hospital Emergency Department is one of the busiest in the state with close to 60,000 attendees each year, and this expansion will help meet that demand.” The department will have its own ambulance entry point – which is desperately needed as Frankston has the largest number of ambulance arrivals in the state. Ambulance transfer times have improved with 86.3 per cent of transfers completed within the 40-minute target this year - up from 58.9 per cent in March last year. They are expected to improve with the new development. The new emergency department will have dedicated paediatric, mental health, medical imaging with a CT scanner, and specialist treatment areas, including women’s health. But, while the hospital redevelopment may be good news for the minister, state government concerns that the federal Budget will rip $200 million out of health and education from 1 July must be galling. This includes the $7 co-payment to visit a GP – which may push more people into public hospital emergency rooms with the states footing the bill – and higher co-payments for medicines. “There are immediate and significant impacts on the Victorian budget on health, concessions and potentially education,” Dr Napthine told the ABC on Wednesday. “We’re putting more money into health and more money into

education. We don’t want that undermined by decisions in Canberra.” Peninsula residents will certainly be affected by the cuts. But Peninsula Health says that, at this point, it is too early to tell what direct impacts the Budget will have locally. “State and federal governments are currently in negotiations and we expect that we will receive a response from them in the coming weeks. Whatever the result Peninsula Health will continue to provide the best care possible for our patients whilst working within the means we have.’’ Federal Health Minister Peter Dutton said on the ABC’s 7.30 program that references to Budget cuts in health funding were wrong. He said there would be a 9 per cent increase, year on year, in hospital funding reducing to 6.7 per cent from 2017. He disputed claims that the government was ‘’taking $8.6 billion from the Health budget’’ and that incentive payments – to ease waiting lists for elective surgery in public hospitals and improve the flow of patients through emergency departments – were not “gone’’. He said cuts would only occur ‘’only if the states don’t achieve a certain level of activity, if they don’t have population growth in accord with the agreement brokered by (former) Prime Minister Julia Gillard. ‘’We are saying: ‘If you see more patients, if you do more hips and more knees, we will pay for that activity’. So, there is incentive for the states to see more patients and the Commonwealth, as I say, will meet its funding obligations in terms of that activity.’’

Cultural treasure: Nepean Historical Society volunteers Natasha Wicks and Joy Kitch look over donated First World War artefacts that will soon go on permanent display at Sorrento Museum. Picture: Yanni

Anzac legacy comes to life at Sorrento SORRENTO Museum is creating a new permanent display of First World War photographs, letters, documents and artefacts to honour the contribution of peninsula residents to the Anzac legacy. The museum, which is run by the Nepean Historical Society, was last week awarded a federal government grant of $2794 under the Centenary of ANZAC grants program. Nepean Historical Society secretary Joy Kitch said the financial windfall, announced by federal member for Flinders Greg Hunt on behalf of Veterans Affairs Minister Michael Ronaldson, would enable the museum to create a fitting tribute to the region’s WWI veterans and their families. “For a small society like ours it is a very significant amount of money,” Ms Kitch said. “We really wanted to make a significant memorial to local people who served in WWI. “This will enable us to create a professional

collage of photos words and artefacts collected from local people who served in WWI. “In particular, we want to highlight the local women who served.” Ms Kitch said the Nepean Historical Society, which has been working closely with the RSL in designing the collage, had received many donations from local families of precious photos, records, medals, certificate and postcards from the men and women who served. “Knowing that this important centenary of WW1 was coming in 2015, we have been setting aside these items for use on the panel. Making the final selection will be challenging.” Mr Hunt said he was looking forward to working with community groups across the electorate to deliver commemorations that would honour the nation’s centenary of service.

Got to have faith: Last year’s Interfaith Festival was a celebration of spirituality and religious beliefs.

Diversity at faith fest PEACE and spiritual harmony are set to permeate the peninsula community next weekend as hundreds of visitors descend on Mornington for the annual Interfaith Festival. The theme of this year’s event is “a celebration of diversity” as the festival expands its spiritual and religious focus to embrace the broader community’s many cultural traditions. The Mornington Peninsula Interfaith Network, which hosts the increasingly popular event, said the festival was a celebration of spiritual and cultural diversity through music, dance, art, workshops and food. Among the many free events at this year’s festival on Sunday 8 June at the Peninsula Community Theatre in Mornington are African drumming and dancing, choir singing, laughter yoga and a multicultural concert including Aboriginal whale singing, Chinese lion dancing, Ghanese dancing, Zimbabwean

singing, and a Venezuelan ensemble. Visitors can also watch artists display their oil, pastel and water colour paintings and drawings, as well as demonstrations of traditional crafts such as embroidery and crochet. A number of faith leaders will come together “in the spirit of peace” to offer blessings to the community, while a host of multicultural and multifaith stands will offer insights into spiritual opportunities. There’s will also be a smorgasboard of delicious food and numerous activities for children, including face painting, indigenous jewellery making, animal clay sculpturing and boomerang painting and throwing. The Interfaith Festival is also supported by the Victorian Multicultural Commission, Mornington Peninsula Shire, Order of Australia, University of the Third Age, and Creativity Australia.

Council poised for new era COMMENT By David Harrison CR Frank Martin has quit his Red Hill ward at a most interesting moment in Mornington Peninsula Shire history. He has been a crucial vote at a time when important matters have been, and are being, decided. Mr Martin, an affable and personable man who had skill and experience to offer his ratepayers, has resigned because of illness. It opens up possibilities, after the byelection the vacancy triggers, for substantial changes in the way the shire goes about its business.First, continuance of the long dominance of the David Gibb-Anne Shaw councillor group of six is teetering. Mr Martin was a staunch member of the Six, standing firm with them on issues such as building the Southern Peninsula Aquatic Centre on the Rosebud foreshore and supporting other major development and planning matters. The byelection could well result in an opponent of the foreshore site joining council, shifting the vote from 6-5 for the Gibb-Shaw group to 6-5 against it, thus placing the SPA project in jeopardy. Second, the Six – now reduced to the Five – are thought to favour reappointing shire CEO Michael Kennedy for another term without advertising his $350,000 a year job. He has been reappointed four times in his 15-odd years as shire chief executive and is thought to be seeking another contract. Before the byelection brings a new face to the council table, the vote stands at five-all in the chamber. Tied votes can be decided by mayor Antonella Celi using her casting vote. Issues requiring such votes could well include SPA issues and the future of Dr Kennedy. The Kennedy matter poses difficulties. Council must decide some time in August – the Red Hill ward poll must be held before the end of August at the latest – whether to reappoint the CEO again or to advertise his position. It would be proper to hold the byelection before councillors vote on the CEO’s position. Otherwise the diminished chamber, lacking the replacement for Mr Martin, could be deadlocked, requiring Cr Celi to use her casting vote, effectively to reappoint

Dr Kennedy. By tradition, casting votes are used to preserve the status quo. And the expectation is that those who chair meetings strive to be disinterested, and be seen to be so. It would be highly contentious in my view for mayor Celi – who is unwavering in her support for and admiration of Dr Kennedy – to ensure another term for the CEO via her casting vote. Far better to bring on the byelection quickly so a full complement of councillors can relieve the mayor of having to make that decision effectively alone. While the SPA will not present Cr Celi with casting-vote difficulties in the short term, the now-Five pro-foreshore councillors face an immediate dilemma over a SPA issue – will they favour the public’s right to know via transparent process over clear partisan self-interest? At time of writing a councillor is seeking on Monday 26 May to have a SPA matter brought to an ordinary council meeting. It is thought to have been a confidential item at the special purposes committee meeting held a week earlier. (See ‘Walkout ends debate’, pg 1). The SPA is a massive, divisive, hugely expensive project whose cost is heading towards $40 million. Already one councillor, Graham Pittock, cannot vote on SPA matters, having been accused of having a conflict of interest over it and in the hands of the glacier-paced Local Government Inspectorate. In this writer’s view it would be extraordinary for the Five to vote to keep this item secret rather than agreeing to have it debated publicly. It is utterly vital that, wherever possible, issues of this magnitude are discussed openly. How the Five vote will be most instructive. Ratepayers are entitled to know where their councillors stand on such unprecedented spending. Councillors have a responsibility to their constituents to minimise decisions made behind closed doors – meetings from which no information can be made public, including how councillors voted, without risk of severe penalty. In such matters accountability is everything. The shire is right to preach “openness and transparency”. But it, and its councillors, must also practise it, to the greatest degree possible. It’s what we call democracy.

LETTERS ‘Food for fines’ thanks

Long drive for free tip

MORNINGTON Peninsula Shire’s Libraries recently undertook a “Food for Fines” amnesty whereby food could be donated in lieu of fines (‘Fines food on cards’, The News, 15/4/14). The recipients of the donated food were the Community Support Centres at Mornington, Rosebud and Hastings. Mornington Community Information and Support Centre received the donations from the Mornington Library and I would like to thank them and all the users of the library for the extremely generous donations of nonperishable food that was given to us over the month of the program. We give out about $3000 per week of direct aid to the less fortunate in our community on average, including food from our pantry which forms an essential part of our program. Our assessment of the donations given over this period from the “Food for Fines” program is that we received over 2000 items weighing about 700 kgs equal to about $4,000 in value – a magnificent effort! In addition to expressing our thanks to all the contributors I would also like to thank the staff and officers within the council who thought up a such a worthwhile scheme and were so helpful in assisting us with the collections. John L Riddle, president, Mornington Community Information and Support Centre

I OFTEN wonder on ‘no-charge’ green waste weekends, why the gatekeepers at the Truemans Rd centre check the residency of the driver of each and every vehicle upon entry. To not be a shire resident one would have to drive from Frankston ignoring the Mornington Resource Recovery Centre all the way to Rye or catch the ferry across the bay paying a return fare for a car and trailer. Fred Wild, Rye

Budget ‘outrage’ unfair COMMUNITY outrage at the recent budget, is, I believe, unfair. For Australia paying billions regularly as interest alone on what the country owes is crazy. We must stop doing it. The only way is a tough budget. OK, the government may have some initiatives wrong, but the aim is good. Labor’s failure and broken promises to bring in surpluses, resulting in a huge debt is the underlying cause. Let’s all work to fix this problem.

Rosebud Hospital praised but cuts on way By Stephen Taylor ROSEBUD Hospital was playing its part in reducing Victoria’s elective surgery waiting list which has fallen significantly over the past year, state Health Minister David Davis said last week. He said the hospital has had a “healthy drop’’ in the number of patients waiting for surgery. A performance report shows a number of key areas where the Rosebud Hospital has improved. These include: Fewer patients on the elective surgery waiting list – from 165 at the end of the March 2013 quarter to 74 at the end of March 2014. Treated 257 patients from the elective surgery waiting list in the March quarter, up on the 154 waiting list admissions a year earlier. Provided operations within the benchmark 30 days for 100 per cent of the hospital’s 40 Category 1 urgent elective surgery patients in the March quarter. Provided operations within the benchmark 90 days for 90 per cent of the hospital’s Category 2 urgent elective surgery patients in the March quarter – up from 62 per cent last year. Provided operations within the benchmark 365 days for 97 per cent of the hospital’s Category 3 elective surgery patients in the March quarter – above the state average of 91 per cent. Completed the transfer of 94.2 per cent of patients who arrived at the hospital by ambulance in the March quarter within the target of 40 minutes, up on its 90.4 per cent transfer rate in March 2013 and better than the state-

wide benchmark of 90 per cent. Received 607 ambulance arrivals at

the busy emergency department in the three months to the end of March – up from 597 arrivals in the December quarter. Admitted 2778 patients in the three months to the end of March – up from 2514 admissions in the December quarter. The Rosebud Hospital is at the heart of the Rosebud Health Hub – a new health initiative for residents at the southern end of the peninsula. It offers a comprehensive range of healthcare services from the Rosebud Hospital site, including community health, mental health, allied health and dental health services. The hospital has 30 acute and 30 subacute beds, four surgical beds serv-

ing one operating theatre, nine renal dialysis chairs, three cardiac monitored beds and four chemotherapy chairs. The emergency department has nine cubicles and a fast track area. The hospital provides care and treatment for both admitted and out patients. Serving more than 130,000 residents on the southern peninsula, the hospital’s target population swells dramatically during holiday periods, with the peak summer period attracting more than 100,000 holiday makers to the peninsula. Elsewhere, the new emergency department at the revamped Frankston hospital will be three times the size of the old one with three new wards. It was of special interest to Mr Davis who last week inspected the four-storey hospital redevelopment due to be completed

next year. The $80.9 million works are said to be ‘’on time and on budget’’. Standing on top of the building Mr Davis said: “The Frankston Hospital Emergency Department is one of the busiest in the state with close to 60,000 attendees each year, and this expansion will help meet that demand.” The department will have its own ambulance entry point – which is desperately needed as Frankston has the largest number of ambulance arrivals in the state. Ambulance transfer times have improved with 86.3 per cent of transfers completed within the 40-minute target this year - up from 58.9 per cent in March last year. They are expected to improve with the new development. The new emergency department will have dedicated paediatric, mental health, medical imaging with a CT scanner, and specialist treatment areas, including women’s health. But, while the hospital redevelopment may be good news for the minister, state government concerns that the federal Budget will rip $200 million out of health and education from 1 July must be galling. This includes the $7 co-payment to visit a GP – which may push more people into public hospital emergency rooms with the states footing the bill – and higher co-payments for medicines. “There are immediate and significant impacts on the Victorian budget on health, concessions and potentially education,” Dr Napthine told the ABC on Wednesday. “We’re putting more money into health and more money into education.

We don’t want that undermined by decisions in Canberra.” Peninsula residents will certainly be affected by the cuts. But Peninsula Health says that, at this point, it is too early to tell what direct impacts the Budget will have locally. “State and federal governments are currently in negotiations and we expect that we will receive a response from them in the coming weeks. Whatever the result Peninsula Health will continue to provide the best care possible for our patients whilst working within the means we have.’’ Federal Health Minister Peter Dutton said on the ABC’s 7.30 program that references to Budget cuts in health funding were wrong. He said there would be a 9 per cent increase, year on year, in hospital funding reducing to 6.7 per cent from 2017. He disputed claims that the government was ‘’taking $8.6 billion from the Health budget’’ and that incentive payments – to ease waiting lists for elective surgery in public hospitals and improve the flow of patients through emergency departments – were not “gone’’. He said cuts would only occur ‘’only if the states don’t achieve a certain level of activity, if they don’t have population growth in accord with the agreement brokered by (former) Prime Minister Julia Gillard. ‘’We are saying: ‘If you see more patients, if you do more hips and more knees, we will pay for that activity’. So, there is incentive for the states to see more patients and the Commonwealth, as I say, will meet its funding obligations in terms of that activity.’’

Retiree loses everything to online love scam By Chris Brennan A FRANKSTON South retiree has been left homeless and heartbroken after being swindled out of her life savings in a sophisticated online love scam. Carole Ross, 64, lost more than $200,000, including all of her superannuation savings, after being duped by a “love interest” she met through an online dating website. “This has destroyed me,” Ms Ross said. “I’m emotionally distraught and financially ruined; I’ve lost my home, all my retirement savings, and my car is about to be repossessed. My life is ruined.” While well aware of the dangers of online dating and romance scams, Ms Ross never thought for a moment that her new found “soul mate” had been anything but real. After all, they’d shared an intensely passionate relationship over almost ten months, melding their futures - and finances - together in preparation of a promised “ever after”. Wedding bells were in the offing, the culmination of a whirlwind, fairtale romance that was set to fulfill the recently retired health care worker’s deepest longings. Not only was “Alex” attractive and considerably younger than Ms Ross, he was also very well off. She would never have to worry about money again. “If only I could have my time over again,” Ms Ross said. “It’s so obvious now that it was too good be true, but when you’re in the middle it, of all this passion and excitement, you don’t stop to think that it could be anything but real.” The saga began last August when a

friend suggested she try to get back into the dating game by signing up to a dating website. She’d been separated for many years and was soon to retire from her longterm job with Peninsula Health’s Mt Eliza Centre to a life of “relative comfort”. A loving relationship was the one missing element in her life. After putting up her online profile, it wasn’t long before she received a response from prospective suiter, a “well educated, sophisticated gentleman” who claimed to live in London. They had much in common and plenty to talk about, especially with her being from England originally.

They even shared a mutual friend - the same person who’d suggested Ms Ross try the website. Ms Ross never suspected her new beau might have mined details of her life from Facebook. “We’d talk every day – twice a day - on the phone,” she said. “We’d talk about everything. He was very sophisticated, well-educated and wellspoken. “We had a real connection and things quickly became more and more romantic.It was passionate and exciting. I told him things I’d never told another soul. I really thought he was the one.” “He told me he had a young son but his wife had died in a car accident about five years ago. He’d been devastated by her death and it had taken until now to be emotionally ready to try dating again.” Their relationship grew steadily deeper and Alex soon committed to moving out to Australia to be with her. She had finally found “the one” just in time to ensure her golden years truly were everything she had dreamed of. “He told me how he couldn’t believe he’d met someone like me, that he’d never met anyone like me before and that I was the person he was looking for. It was a whirlwind romance, very passionate, and I never suspected it was anything but true love.” “It was like a fairy tale and I was head over heels in love with this person, whoever he was.” With more than enough money for them to both live comfortably ever after together, Alex convinced Ms Ross to leave her job so she could concentrate her time and energy on getting

everything ready for his impending arrival in Australia. That meant she was able to release her superannuation savings, which she planned to live off until he joined her. Not long afterwards, things started to go disastrously awry. The date of his planned departure kept being delayed as one problem after another struck. Then there was a “big business deal” that needed to be completed before he could join her, a lucrative transaction involving a shipment of cars for a fleet buyer in Ukraine. He had to travel to the troubled country to seal the deal. But as a sign of his commitment to Ms Ross, and to assist in him resettle in Australia, the payment for the deal would be put into a bank account set up in her name. There was even an online banking site showing the amount of $990,000 assigned to Ms Carole Ross. Of course she couldn’t access it - yet. Then everything fell apart. “Corrupt” Ukranian police officers were demanding bribes (could she help, please, as he was able to access his own money). She’d need to wire him $6000, then $10,000 then another $10,000. Then she was informed by a “lawyer” that Alex was in jail after an altercation with another corrupt official. There were more legal payments and fines she’d have to pay to help him get out. Then further expenses appeared, this time tied up with the business deal in the form of official government taxes and fees on the bank transfer. As it was now “her” money - how

could she not but agree to pay up or risk losing it all. It wasn’t long before Ms Ross had exhausted her finances - $200,000 in all. But Alex and his Ukranian friends still had one more surprise: a late penalty fee of $49,000 was now required to release the $990,000. Of course it was her fault the fee was being applied as she hadn’t sent enough money fast enough. If she didn’t pay, they’d never see their big pay day. In desperation, Ms Ross turned to a financial adviser to try to raise the required funds. It didn’t take the business and banking expert long to smell a rat. A bit of digging revealed the image of “Alex” was a well known profile used in multiple international scams, a stolen identity now being peddled by numerous scammers. Luckily, Ms Ross didn’t raise the $49,000 to hand over to Alex. Despite confronting him, Alex still insists everything is legitimate. She is the one who screwed everything up by not handing over the rest of the money. And he’s the one who’s heart is broken. And there’s still a chance everything will work out, if only she can come up with the rest of the money. If only. “It’s horrible realising you have been deceived,” Ms Ross said. “I still find myself wondering ‘what if he is telling the truth’ but then I catch myself and realise how crazy that is.” “I never thought anyone would be able to scam me like this, but this just shows, it can happen to anyone.”

100 YEARS AGO THIS WEEK...

Somerville ladies thrown from gig; Empire Day celebrated Compiled by Cameron McCullough MR J Nott Marsh left on Tuesday for Tasmania, where he has gone on a business trip. *** MESSRS A Patterson and A Gerschwitz proceeded to Sydney on Monday, where they intend spending a few weeks’ holiday. The marriage of Mr H Lloyd and Miss Hanton is announced to take place on the 10th of next month. *** THE many friends of Mrs A Foster, of “Beachleigh” who recently underwent a serious operation will be glad to learn that she is now well on the road to a complete recovery. *** A PICTURE show was held in the Mechanics’ Institute, Mornington, on Wednesday night last, in aid of the funds of the Mornington Football Club, and was very well patronised. *** A FULL yarding of cattle of all descriptions is advertised for Messrs A. Scott and Co’s usual monthly sale at Tanti yards, which will be held on Monday next. *** MESSRS Brody and Mason will hold an unreserved clearing sale of household furniture and sundries on Wednesday next, on account of Mr W. A. Mohr, who is leaving the district. The sale will be held on the premises, Hastings Road, Frankston. *** THE Rev R Jackson, who has been laid aside by illness for some weeks past, has so far recovered, we are pleased to note, as to be able to again

take up his duties, and the congregation was pleased to see him again in the pulpit on Sunday evening last. *** WE regret to hear that Mr A E Gault, of Somerville, is still seriously ill, and his condition is causing his many friends considerable anxiety. He and Mrs Gault proceeded by train to Adelaide on Wednesday, where he will be under the care of his uncle, Dr Gault. *** THE Frankston Choral Society was well represented at their usual weekly practice on Monday night last, when there were 40 members present thus giving the conductor much encouragement in his work. Mr Frederic Earp conducted for the first time, and showed great tact and zeal in his effort to maintain the best quality of singing from the society. *** THE annual sale of gifts for the support of students in New Guinea, in connection with the Frankston Methodist Church, was held on last Saturday afternoon and evening. There was a fair attendance, which would have been considerably larger had not the weather been so threatening. However there was a fair amount of business done, the proceeds being not much short of that taken last year. *** MRS J and Miss L Thornell and Miss E Westaway, of Somerville, had an unpleasant experience several days ago whilst driving in a gig to Mornington. They had proceeded about two miles on their way when the pony trod on a loose piece of metal, causing it to fall, and throwing the occupants on top of the animal, which, fortunately was very

27 May 2014

quiet. Mrs Thornell was laid up for three days through the severe shaking and shock. Misses Thornell and Westaway suffered slightly from shock. Messrs K Webb and E Meldrum went to their assistance, and the latter drove them home sprayed with mud. ***

Mrs Tute spoke of the power of the British Empire, its vast extent and its varied peoples. She referred to her residence in India, Britain’s greatest dependency, where 300 million of the King’s subjects attest the genius of the British race for government

A PLEASING function took place at the Methodist Sunday School on Tuesday evening last, when the local branch of the Christian Endeavor Society held a social evening for the purpose of bidding good bye to Mr E and Miss Hill, who are leaving the district to take up their residence in Melbourne. The Rev R Jackson, on behalf of members, in a few complimentary remarks, made Miss Hill a presentation of a silver serviette ring and to Mr Hill of a pocket wallet, as souvenirs of their connection with the Society. A short programme of songs and recitations was gone through, in which

Miss Croskell, Miss Gale, and Mr Ellis took part. the rest of the evening being devoted to parlor games. An excellent supper terminated a most enjoyable evening. *** FINE weather favored the Empire Day celebrated at Rosebud on Friday, 22nd May. In the morning the scholars, under their teacher (Mr Perrin) assisted by the members of the school committee and a number of parents and friends assembled in front of the school to perform the ceremony of saluting the flag, followed by three hearty cheers for “King, Queen, and Empire.” The gathering then proceeded into the schoolroom, which was gaily decorated for the occasion. Here interesting addresses were delivered by Mrs Clifford Tute (late of India) and Mr Alexander, J P. Mrs Tute spoke of the power of the British Empire, its vast extent and its varied peoples. She referred to her residence in India, Britain’s greatest dependency, where 300 million of the King’s subjects attest the genius of the British race for government, and dwelt on the pleasure it gave her – an English woman – to have the opportunity of addressing the children of this happier “Britain beyond the Seas,” where real want or poverty was unknown. Mrs Tute concluded by emphasing the need for the British nation throughout all the King’s s dominions being a united people if the greatness of the Empire is to last. Mr Alexander reminded his audience that they were on historic ground, for but a few miles distant was the site of the first settlement, so soon aban-

doned by Captain Collins, whose lack of prophetic insight was proved by Victoria’s present prosperity. He impressed on the scholars that the future destiny of this great land of Australia lay largely in their hands, to make or to mar, accordingly as they grew up noble men or women, or the reverse. A programme of Empire Day songs, recitations, and essays was then given by the scholars, each of whom received an Empire Day medal and a bag of lollies, while the best essays were rewarded with book prizes. After a hearty vote of thanks to the speakers the morning’s proceedings terminated with the singing of the National Anthem. In the afternoon, a programme of races etc. was gone through, and tea and refreshments were served to the large gathering by the ladies, to whom a hearty vote of thanks was accorded. The assemblage then sang the National Anthem, which brought to a close a successful and enjoyable function. *** MORNINGTON v. FRANKSTON; The above teams met at Mornington on Saturday, when the locals again had a full 18, while Frankston were very poorly represented. The play was fairly even after the first half, but in that time the damage had been done, and Mornington ran out winners with a substantial majority. Owing to the lateness of starting, the latter part of the game was played practically in darkness. Punctuality in starting should be strictly enforced. and the defaulting team or teams should be made to pay a heavy penalty. From the pages of the Mornington Standard, 30 May 1914

FOOD & ENTERTAINMENT

The rise and fall of a fatback idiot box By Stuart McCullough SOMEWHERE along the line, things got seriously out of whack. Once upon a time, home cinemas were the exclusive preserve of those who had indoor bowling alleys and monkey butlers. Not anymore. The default setting for television sets is now ginormous. It used to be the only time you saw a screen that big, it was surrounded by world leaders and they were watching a threatening message from some mutant super-villain demanding a mega ransom. Now people routinely sit and watch old episodes of Gardening Australia on screens that swallow their living room wall without so much as a second, third or even fourth thought. Things have changed. Just as a really expensive watch is water resistant to three hundred metres, my father is change resistant to a far greater depth. Flat screens are not for him – he likes to rock it old school style. In the hands of others, his approach to technology would be considered a masterful postmodern statement steeped in irony rather than a refusal to accept that the world has moved on. That he is slow to embrace the new is no bad thing. But there comes a point when confronting change becomes inevitable. There’s an old saying: if it ain’t broke, don’t fix it. My father, however, takes a more extreme approach and refuses to admit that something is clapped out and busted, even in the face of overwhelming evidence. It’s a trait that I have inherited. A couple of years ago, I was driving through Healesville when an unholy noise that sounded like a cross between

two pieces of metal arguing with each other and the last Lady Gaga album screamed from beneath the bonnet. But despite such a symphony of disaster, I vehemently denied there was anything wrong right up until the moment that smoke and flames and a catastrophic loss of power rendered my denial somewhat redundant. In the corner of my father’s living room it sits. Once it would have been considered large. Now it would best be described as a Tyrannosaurus TV; an absolute dinosaur. It occupies a space in a wooden cabinet. Grey and shaped like a small hippopotamus, it’s kind of like a shrine. But age has wearied it, just as age does all of us at some point. If there’s a program you want

to watch, you must factor in some vital ‘warming up’ time and turn the set on early. But no amount of time will save it entirely. Even if given a decent period to gather its thoughts, when a picture emerges, it is with a distinctly greenish hue. I’d go so far as to say everyone on screen looks as if he or she is part through transforming into either the Incredible Hulk or Kermit the Frog. Not that my father would ever admit as much. We decided to take matters into our own hands. My father was away for the weekend and we decided to make a decisive move. But there were some challenges, not least of which was the fact that whatever we bought had to fit into the existing cabinet. Replacing

his television was one thing; throwing out his cabinet and drilling holes into his plaster might transcend thoughtfulness and be interpreted as a declaration of war. We headed into Frankston. It’s been ages since I’ve bought a TV. A few things became clear very quickly – firstly, it’s no surprise that people mostly have gigantic televisions these days because that’s the only size in which you can buy them. It’s like wandering into one of those clothing shops that caters solely to the plus-sized person. The world has turned to the ‘Solway’ brand of thinking in which the sizing starts at ‘really big’ and just gets bigger. Smaller TVs aren’t made for the living room. Instead, they’re made for the bedroom,

the pantry, the thunderbox and whatever other nook or cranny people think they can’t survive without a TV. But these were too small for the cabinet. The next size was, alas, too big. In Goldilocks terms, we needed the one in the middle that was ‘just right’. It was the last of its kind – the final remnant of a discontinued line, the likes of which would never be seen again. Not so small that it would be swallowed by the gaping cavity of the cabinet and not so big as to not fit in. It was, in a word, perfect. But only upon our return to Tyabb did the enormity of the task we’d taken on become apparent. To install the new flat back television, we first had to remove the old one. I tried to move it forward in the cabinet without success. With all my might, I dragged it. As it sailed over the lip of the wood and the full burden of TV took hold of my shoulders, I realised that this thing might well weigh more than my first car. In its place, we plugged in the new set and tuned it, making sure everything worked as it ought to. After hours of effort, our mission was complete. I’ve never felt so proud. He rang, of course, to thank me. In the next breath he asked whether my brother had helped. I was insulted. As an adult, I am perfectly capable of installing and tuning a television by myself. Especially if my wife does all the difficult stuff. Suddenly flatter than the screen in my father’s living room, my pride felt like a fat-backed idiot box, cast upon the nature strip of life. But that’s okay. Sometimes you need to consider the big picture. A task now that is now easier than ever. stuart@stuartmccullough.com

The link between food and behaviour HAVE you ever wondered if what you are feeding your child is affecting how they behave? Many parents are starting to notice the difference that removing food additives, colourings and preservatives can make but for some children, the problem is more extensive than that. Some children react to naturally occurring food chemicals that can be found in many healthy foods. Reactions can occur up to 48 hours after exposure, making it difficult for parents to connect the behaviour to the foods eaten. Children who react to food chemicals may display symptoms such as:  hyperactivity  poor bladder control (including bedwetting)  digestive problems  eczema or other skin conditions  headaches or migraines  aggressive behaviour  sleeping problems  nausea Salicylates, amines and glutamates are three food chemicals that may cause issues for children. Salicylates are the most common of the three to cause problems. They are found in many foods, including a large number of fruits and vegetables, herbs, spices, honey and yeast extracts. They can also be found in cosmetics, flavourings and some medica-

tions (such as aspirin). Amines are in fermented foods, cheese, chocolate, canned fish, bananas, avocados and tomatoes. Glutamates occur naturally in foods such as tomatoes, yeast extracts, soy sauces and cheeses, and are also added to foods in the form of MSG. Isolating the problem foods can be very difficult as children may react to more that one group of food chemicals, and many foods are high in multiple food chemicals.

If you suspect your child may have a food intolerance problem, it is always best to seek the advice of a qualified health professional before removing any foods, as they can advise you on how to ensure your child is still getting a healthy, balanced diet.

At the Bendigo it starts with U.

Embarrassing defeat raises serious questions PENINSULA INTERLEAGUE By Toe Punt PENINSULA league coach Stevey Ryan believes that unless the leagueâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s governing body, PCN Sports Alliance, gets behind representative football, the competition will go backwards. Ryan made the claim in the wake of the Peninsula Leagueâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s 85-point belting at the hands of Geelong Football League at Simmons Stadium on Saturday. Whilst the 21 players who represented the league did their very best, they were no match for the Geelong FL, who dominated from start to finish to win 18.18.126 to 6.5.41. Peninsula League was held scoreless in the final quarter and booted just two goals in the second half. Ryan, along with assistant coach Troy Shannon, led the team to a memorable win last season to earn the right to challenge for the title of number one country football league in the competition. However, despite the importance of the occasion, players, clubs, coaches,

officials and most importantly, the governing body, failed to provide the necessary support for the Peninsula League to be at their best. Eight players pulled out of the team in the week leading up to Saturdayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s match. Another pulled out on the eve of the game, however, he is expected to line-up against Pines this weekend. The same thing happened last year in terms of the lack of commitment and support from players and clubs, however, it was masked by a great performance from those who represented the Peninsula League team. Ryan said it was time for everyone from the top to the bottom to take representative football seriously. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The recruitment of quality players to our competition depends largely on the performance of our league on the big stage,â&#x20AC;? Ryan said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;If we canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t get players, clubs and the league to support the country championships, then the competition will go backwards because we wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t recruit the very best talent.â&#x20AC;? Ryan said Geelong Football League

epitomised what representing your league was all about. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Their (Geelong FL) clubs made a commitment to representative football at league and club level, they have been training as a group since before the season started and they even trained with the Geelong VFL team in preparation,â&#x20AC;? Ryan said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The result of all that was a super impressive performance from the very best players in their competition. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We were no-where near them, which is a shame when you consider it was one versus two in terms of leagues. â&#x20AC;&#x153;They simply blew us away and were a class above. â&#x20AC;&#x153;To our boysâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; credit, they gave their all and even with our very best team, things would have been tough. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve just got to decide whether we as a competition want to commit to interleague football or not. â&#x20AC;&#x153;If it wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t for Pines, Edithvale, Mornington and Frankston YCW Football Clubs supporting the concept this year, we wouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have fielded a side. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Blokes like Ash Eames and Byron

and Anthony Barry have nothing to gain from playing interleague football but they put up their hand and give everything. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Whereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the support from everyone else? Blokes are pulling out with one week hamstring injuries! â&#x20AC;&#x153;I hear that certain clubs and players have an issue with myself or Troy Shannon, but this is about playing with the best in the competition and representing your league. Build a bridge and get over it, really.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s got to start from the top to be successful and planning needs to start now,â&#x20AC;? Ryan said. Ryan also supported the concept of appointing coaches that can devote the time and effort to the task. â&#x20AC;&#x153;You need a team of people who know and love the league and are not involved at club level. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s tough to coach a club and to do this, especially when youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re ringing blokes to play up to the eve of the game, as well as not having the necessary support from the top â&#x20AC;&#x153;We are left to our devices and we do the best we can with the time we have.

â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve made written recommendations to PCN Sports Alliance about it and do you think I have heard back? (This scribe was also asked to write recommendations to the league last season and never received a reply). â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m not sure why we are all expected to care about it so much when those at the top donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t support it the way they should.â&#x20AC;? Morningtonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Warwick Miller was outstanding for the Peninsula League at half back, Edi-Aspendaleâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Stevey Mannix was superb, the two Barry boys led from the front and Angus Scott, who spends his time between Casey and Edithvale, was also very good. Lachy Wallace, who spends time between Collingwood in the VFL and YCW, was also prominent. Ash Eames had some hamstring soreness but Steve Ryan was quick to take him from the ground and never put him back on. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Eamesy wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t going to make a difference to the final result so it was important to ensure he was right for his club this weekend,â&#x20AC;? Ryan said.

SOUTHERN PENINSULA scoreboard

Classy Nepean too strong for Central Murray NEPEAN INTERLEAGUE By Toe Punt DESPITE an under strength Nepean League team going into battle at Rosebud’s Olympic Park on Saturday, it proved far too strong for Central Murray FL on Saturday. Nepean League dominated in the opening and last quarters to run out comfortable 16.12.108 to 9.15.69 winners. Central Murray FL got with two goals on a couple of occasions late in the second quarter and got within five points in the third, but they were no match for the locals when the game was there to be won. It was no surprise that Nepean league won the match, even without a full strength line-up. Nepean League had just 12 players at the first training session. The lack of support from players and some clubs again highlighted that the support of the interleague concept is far from great, which is a direct reflection on the governing body, PCN Alliance, along with its member clubs. Dromana and Rye were very well represented with five and four players respectively each in the team, while Red Hill and Crib Point had three each. That’s three quarters of the team from four clubs. The match as a spectacle never reached any great heights, other than the performance of Sorrento goal kicking machine Leigh Poholke, who finished the afternoon with seven goals. Justin Berry was superb throughout the contest and highlighted his appetite for interleague football, while Crib Point’s Waide Symes and Red Hill’s Josh Mold provided a lot of run and grunt around the footy and run through the middle of the ground. While skipper Rhett Sutton was

overshadowed in the ruck, his athleticism and domination around the ground was a highlight of the match. Dromana’s new 6.11’ recruit, Blake McGrath, looked as though he was going to kick a big bag of goals after he booted two and handed Poholke he’s first major in the first 10 minutes of the game. The score line was five goals to one in the opening quarter. Nepean league coach Ben Holmes wanted more voice on the field in the second quarter from his charges and asked for McGrath to be left one-out in the square with fellow key forwards Poholke and Red Hill’s Jarryd Douglas to play higher up the ground. However, Nepean League started to get cute with the footy in the second quarter, which allowed the fired-up Central Murray to boot three unanswered goals and get themselves back in the content. Former Collingwood-listed player Toby Thoolen was providing a handful for the Nepean defenders. The margin at the long interval was 15 points. The third quarter was much of the same as the second. Central Murray came out fired-up, kicked the first of the quarter and reduced the margin to seven points. It was like Nepean League was waiting for a challenge. Poholke took the game by the scruff and along with Terry Wheeler, Symes and Berry, were able to regain their stronghold and turn a five-point margin halfway through the term to four goals at the final change. Despite Central Murray kicking the first goal of the final quarter, Nepean League dominated from that point on and ran away with a 39-point victory. The under 18s had a big win, booting 24.14.158 to 8.12.60.
