5974 9000 or email: team@mpnews.com.au www.mpnews.com.au DESPITE its lack of surf, Rye pier in Port Phillip was the beach of choice on Saturday for a board-based protest against plans by Norwegian oil-giant Equinor's to drill for oil in the Great Australian Bight. One of the Mornington Peninsula’s organisers, Asha Bainbridge, estimated about 350 people were at Rye for the Fight for the Bight protest, one of 40 being held around Australia. Markus Tschech, of the Surfrider Foundation, said protesters were concerned about the irreversible consequences of an oil spill “not just on Australia’s southern coastline, but on the peninsula”. “Equinor’s own worst-case spill modelling shows a spill could have devastating impacts along the entire south coast of Australia, from Margaret River in Western Australia right around to Port Macquarie in New South Wwales, including Tasmania,” he said. “An oil spill could be catastrophic for local fisheries and towns on the peninsula that rely on our pristine beaches for tourism.” The Fight for the Bight campaign by the Surfrider Foundation Australia and Great Australian Bight Alliance is supported by Maladiction Longboarders, the Wilderness Society, Patagonia and Sea Shepherd.

VicRoads baulks at speed trials Stephen Taylor steve@mpnews.com.au VICROADS may be a major barrier to Mornington Peninsula Shire Council’s calls to trial 80kph speed limits on roads throughout the peninsula. The roads authority says it prefers to tackle speed issues on a case-by-case basis. VicRoads last week said it “regularly explores safety upgrades, including speed limit changes, in consultation with the community and our road safety partners including Victoria Police and the TAC”. “Speed limits on all Victorian roads are reviewed on a case-by-case basis,

but we always welcome feedback from the community on how we can continue to make our roads safer,” a VicRoads spokesperson told The News. Cr David Gill last week called for an 80kph limit in dangerous areas in a bid to reduce road deaths which have spiked on the peninsula over the past 12 months. (“Call to limit road speeds” The News 18/11/2019). Cr Gill wants 80kph speed limits on of the peninsula’s narrow and unmade roads. VicRoads said: “When considering a speed limit change, a range of factors, such as pedestrian and vehicle numbers, the design and type of road, local environment and crash history are taken into account.

“Unsealed roads are mostly the responsibility of local councils.” Although not all signs have yet been changed, VicRoads says speed limits have been reduced from 70kph to 60kph in Watt Road, Mornington; 100 to 80 in Bruce Road, Mt Martha; 70 to 60 in South Beach Road, Somers; and 90 to 80 in Davies Road, Bittern. “We are also intending to implement a new speed limit on Jetty Road [Rosebud], reducing it from 100kph to 80kph,” the VicRoads spokesperson stated Meanwhile, the new mayor Cr Sam Hearn wants residents and ratepayers to “help shape council’s road safety strategy [to] set the vision, targets and strategy of our journey as a towards

zero municipality”. “We want to hear from our community to find out their thoughts, expectations and needs on how we can create a safer road system and network through safer roads, safer vehicles, safer speeds, safer people and bike safety,” he said. “Sadly, it’s been a tragic year on Mornington Peninsula roads. This year, we have had 14 deaths [when] last year there were two. “Any death is far too many. We need to work together to minimise road trauma.” Community consultation is open until 5pm, Friday 20 December. Visit: mornpen.vic.gov.au/haveyoursay. Hard copy forms are at the shire’s

offices in Rosebud, Mornington, Hastings and Somerville. Drop-in sessions are at Hastings Community Hub, 1973 FrankstonFlinders Road, Hastings, 4-7pm, Wednesday 4 December; Rosebud Memorial Hall, 994 Point Nepean Road, Rosebud, 4-7pm, Wednesday 11 December, and Mornington Council Chambers, 2 Queen Street, Mornington, 4-7pm, Friday 13 December.

Shire tops in election promises - Gill Keith Platt keith@mpnews.com.au DAVID Gill sees the influence Mornington Peninsula Shire had on the May 2018 federal election as one of council’s main achievements during his time as mayor. He says “advocacy” by the shire during the election campaign led to the “winning party” making “project promises” of $175 million. Cr Gill, pictured, credits the shire with achieving “the largest number of project promises ever secured in a local government campaign”. The seat of Flinders was won for the Liberal Party by Greg Hunt, who has held the seat since being first elected in 2001. Cr Gill made his comments at the shire’s 12 November annual meeting, which saw Cr Sam Hearn elected to take over the mayor’s role. Speaking later to The News, Cr Gill criticised the state government for not being tougher on jet skis. The shire wanted to set aside areas for jet skis on some beaches and banning them from mixing with swimmers elsewhere. Instead, the government has opted to allow jet skis near swimmers throughout the shire, but ordering them to drive to deeper water in a straight line from the beach. “The government says they have to go straight out, but that’s a joke. There’s no one to enforce it,” Cr Gill said. “The government’s trumpeting this like it’s a great new deal, but it’s already in the law and being ignored. “They’re treating jet skis the same as paddle boards.” Cr Gill was also disappointed that the state government was not taking any action to prevent the “too dangerous” activity of jumping off the cliffs at The Pillars, Mt Martha. He remains optimistic (“although we’re not home and hosed”) that Planning Minister Richard Wynne will agree to amending planning rules to

“protect” the peninsula’s 42 towns and the green wedge. If the shire succeeds in having a “bulk declaration” of an 80kph speed limit on most roads throughout the peninsula it would be a highlight of his term as mayor and “undoubtedly save lives”. “It’s something that has never happened before,” he said. “It can’t cover all unmade roads [where the default speed limit is 100kph], as that would require a change of legislation.” In his “outgoing speech” to the annual meeting Cr Gill said another highlight of his mayoral term had been seeing the Port of Hastings Authority release 400 hectares of “long idle port-related industrial land for proposed job creating uses in the Hastings and Somerville areas “. Work began on the Rosebud aquatic centre and new rules for “party houses” meant property owners could be prosecuted for irresponsible behaviour. Council’s signing of a small business charter was “a great deal for local businesses”. Cr Gill was pleased with $300,000 from the federal government to “kick off the feasibility of using recycled water from the South East outfall to assist farmers, firefighting, sports grounds and the environment”. The Better Buses campaign and declaration of a climate emergency had been well received, as was the shire’s decision to progressively implement a ban on plastics and smoking on council lands and its commitment to use 100 per cent renewable energy by 2021 and have no carbon emissions by 2040. Cr Gill said his year as mayoyhad also seen the introduction of “strategies to empower our Indigenous residents”, including displaying Aboriginal and Torres Strait islander flags in the council chamber. Other plans and strategies to have long term effects, included those for gender equality, arts and culture, and a shire-wide heritage review.

NEPEAN MP Chris Brayne has lost his licence for three months after being caught by police driving at 108kph in an 80kph zone. Mr Brayne had just turned 25 when he became the state’s youngest serving MP when elected last November. His win was hailed as a major victory for Labor which gained a valuable foothold on the Liberal-dominated Mornington Peninsula. Nepean had been held for 14 years by former minister Martin Dixon, whose former office manager Russell Joseph was expected to easily win the seat. Sportsbet offered $16 for a Labor win and $1.01 for the Liberals. The loss of Mr Brayne’s licence could be embarrassing for the Labor government which is being pressured by Mornington Peninsula Shire to lower speed limits across the peninsula which has witnessed a record 14 roads deaths so far this year. Mr Brayne took to Facebook the morning after being booked, saying he was not drunk or had been taking drugs. “I am deeply sorry. Road safety is a collective responsibility and I have let my community and colleagues down,” Mr Brayne posted on Facebook. “I have the utmost respect for Victoria Police and I thank those members who enforce road safety every day. “There are no excuses for dangerous lapses in concentration on our roads, and I take full responsibility for my actions. “As a Member of Parliament, I believe in setting a positive example for my community – especially for young people. I will continue to work hard for my community every single day.” Mr Brayne did not return a call from The News. Keith Platt

Signs to deter summer jumpers at The Pillars Keith Platt keith@mpnews.com.au NEW signs, blocking tracks and revegetation are the latest moves being made to stop cliff jumpers at The Pillars, Mt Martha. Police and local laws officers will also be keeping a close eye on illegal parking, booking misbehaving motorists where possible. But there will be no return of the fence that last year cost Mornington Peninsula Shire ratepayers about $200,000 and saw police refusing to climb over it to enforce alcohol bans. Last Wednesday (20 November) saw no shortage of thrill seekers jumping off the cliffs, with boats and jet skis anchored close by.” The shire’s coastal planner Laura Crilly in an emailed “update” (19 November) said the “efficacy” of the latest measures to stop cliff jumping would be “monitored”, with “management options reviewed on an ongoing basis”. The shire would also be collecting litter from nearby streets emptying waste bins daily. Mt Martha resident Sue Davey is “disappointed” with the shire’s plan to “monitor the situation” over summer, including counting the number of visitors and “associated activity”. “I think that council have made a real effort, but they seem to hit a brick wall when trying to get some support from DEWLP (the Department of Environment, Water, Land and Planning),” Ms Davey told The News. She said the land was owned by the department and “is responsible for action now”. “A group of residents - including myself - gathered 1000 signatures on a petition to DEWLP in February 2017 asking that a feasibility study be commenced to construct a boardwalk to the The Pillars. This was approved in principal by

council, but council has never managed to gain any commitment from DEWLP to investigate the boardwalk option. “It was only a couple of months ago that helicopters were again flown in to rescue tourists who had fallen down the cliff and become stranded. “If DEWLP won't ban access to the site, then surely council and DEWLP need to agree to provide safe access and amenities at the site.” Cr David Gill said the “huge safety risk” remained at The Pillars but the failure of the fence had left the shire with “little room to manoeuvre”. He said the state government had made it clear it was the shire’s responsibility to warn that jumping off the cliffs “is a dangerous thing to do” but was reluctant to take any action itself. Cr Gill said the shire would try to enforce the alcohol ban at The Pillars and in nearby streets “but we need the state to step in”.

Cracks appear in ‘developer’s wall’ VICROADS is fixing hundreds of cracks in the retaining wall at the northern end of the Marine Drive underpass at Safety Beach. The wall and underpass were built and paid for by the developer of the Martha Cove marina and housing development before being handed over to VicRoads and the Martha Cove owners’ corporation. VicRoads says sealing the cracks will “minimise the risk of corrosion of steel in the walls”. The owners’ corporation says a “cathodic protection system designed to check condition and ensure corrosion of concrete reinforcing steel is minimised” will be installed in the underpass. Mornington-based Watsons, described as a one-stop planning shop, says it acted in the “superintendent’s role” in the design and construction of the underpass.

The company’s director, John Woodman, featured prominently in the first week of hearings by the Independent Broad-based Anti-corruption Commission (IBAC) into alleged crooked land deals within the City of Casey. Mr Woodman told the hearing he had negotiated at Martha Cove with an Aboriginal group whose members were “more keen to bolster their bank balance than they were in finding artefacts”. Mr Woodman unsuccessfully stood for Mornington Peninsula Shire Council in 2012 and 2016. The IBAC hearings - which have so far centred around developments involving Mr Woodman within Casey and donations and payments to councillors and state MPs - are set to continue for a further two weeks.

Signs of the beach-cleaning times RYE’S Beach Clean Boards aim to help rid Mornington Peninsula beaches of marine litter and plastic pollution “two minutes at a time”. Based on the #2minute beach clean boards in the UK, organisers place Aframes along the foreshore near bins encouraging beachgoers to collect litter and then record what they’ve picked up with a #hashtag connected to a social media campaign. “This project aims to increase awareness of the dangers of litter,

especially plastics, to the marine environment, as well as reducing litter on the beach and greater care of our local beaches,” Rye Community House’s Sarah Race said. “We’re going to collect litter and conduct a litter audit for comparison reporting for our project. The scheme is super popular in the UK and Ireland, and we’re the first to launch something similar in Australia.” The project is funded through the state government’s Port Phillip Bay

Fund. Those involved include the Pt Nepean’s Men’s Shed, Rye Community Group Alliance, Josie Jones and Mornington Peninsula Shire. Organisers say: “We believe that every piece of litter removed from the beach matters. So, it doesn’t matter if you do two minutes or 30, each and every piece of marine plastic removed from the beach is a piece that will no longer go on to kill.” Use the hashtag beachclean.net/ for beach cleaning activities.

Attack dogs held

Licensed Plumber & Gasfitter

TWO dogs blamed for the mauling and killing of chooks and a lamb at Bittern last week remain Mornington Peninsula Shire’s pound “pending the outcome of investigations”. “The investigation is still underway. Once concluded, all evidence and information will be sent on to the prosecutor,” environment protection manager John Rankine said. The two kelpies believed to be from Crib Point were seized by rangers after attacking the livestock at three properties, Wednesday 13 November. (“Dogs seized after deadly attacks” The News 20/11/19). Grieving pet owners were devastated by the ferocity of the attacks with one, Chris Phobe, saying his lamb had “suffered for an hour” after “having its guts ripped out”. “If I see those dogs on my property again I will shoot them,” he said.

“It’s happened before and it’s easy to fix with a bit of planning,” he said. The screening of Last Christmas and The Terminator were not affected. “We had to angle the projector slightly to the left but everything turned out OK,” Mr Whitaker said.

HOWLING winds blew down a section of the screen at Dromana drive-in last week. Owner Paul Whitaker, pictured, said a wind shift to the south mid-afternoon Thursday 21 November ripped off a plywood panel three metres high and 1.5 metres wide from the 30 metre-wide screen.

With Stephen Taylor

Motorcycle fatal at Hastings A MOTORCYCLIST died after slamming into the rear of a Subaru Outback station wagon in Hastings, Monday night 18 November. Police and emergency services were called to Hodgins Road following reports of the collision about 10.25pm. The Honda CBR 1000RR was a mass of twisted metal at the side of the road and the back of the Subaru was extensively damaged. Police said the dead man was a 33-year-old from Frankston North but it was too early to determine the cause of the crash which occurred between Boes and Coolart roads. The driver of the Subaru was taken to hospital with non-life threatening injuries. Anyone who witnessed, or who has dashcam footage, of the incident is urged to contact Crime Stoppers 1800 333 000 or submit a confidential report at crimestoppersvic.com.au

P-plater off the road MORNINGTON police conducting Operation Proper on The Esplanade near King Street, Friday night 15 November, pulled over a green P-plater for a test. She proved positive. The 32-year-old, of Rosebud, was taken back to the police station where she blew 0.158. Her licence was suspended and she will receive a summons to appear in court. Her car was impounded for 30 days with a release fee of $1315. “If you are alcohol or drug affected, don’t drive. It’s that simple,” Senior Constable Greg Wolfe, of Somerville CIU, said.

Cars stolen in raid BURGLARS entered a Mt Eliza house through an unlocked garage door and stole keys to two BMWs in the garage, overnight 16-17 November. They drove off in a white 125i model, registration number 1DK5PY, and a blue 320i (ZOA069) from the Manna Hill Court property while the owners were asleep. The total value of the cars is $55,000. The haul was among a series of thefts in Mt Eliza over the weekend. A set of speakers was stolen from the garage of a house in Buloke Close after thieves found a remote control in an unlocked car. The owners heard a loud bang at one stage and turned on the lights and the offenders ran away. The speakers are valued at $250. Mornington Peninsula CIU is also looking into reports of cars being broken into in Sea

Haze Court, Volitans Avenue and Angus Court over the weekend. CCTV footage from one property shows two offenders walking along a street trying door handles and stealing whatever they find inside. “If you leave a garage remote control in a car it’s like leaving them they key,” Detective Peter Drake said.

Wanted for questioning POLICE are seeking public help in identifying a man, above, following a series of thefts from second-hand dealers in the Frankston area early in November. Anyone with information is urged to call Detective Hough at Frankston CIU 9784 5555 and refer to incident number 190415258. Otherwise call Crime Stoppers 1800 333 000.

Drink-driver crashes A SOMERVILLE drink-driver ploughed through an NBN junction box in his ute in Inglenook Crescent, Karingal, and severed the cable 7pm, Friday night 15 November. Police said the ute, above, was seen “driving erratically” in McClelland Drive around that time. After the collision the ute was stuck and the driver reportedly ran from the scene. Somerville Highway Patrol tracked him down about two hours later and took him to Frankston police station where he blew 0.082. He was issued with infringement notices for drink-andcareless driving totalling $893. His licence was cancelled and he was disqualified from driving for six months. Senior Constable Greg Wolfe said he doubted the driver’s car insurance would cover the damage due to the drink-driving charge. “If the NBN makes a demand for payment to their equipment it could be a very expensive exercise,” he said. “If a pedestrian had been hit instead of an NBN cabinet, this would be a whole different scenario involving criminal charges and possible imprisonment.”

Complete care for your loved one UNTIL recently there have been three admirable funeral providers on the Mornington Peninsula. A new, smaller company is poised to join them; providing excellent service at affordable rates. Run by long-time local families with backgrounds in both the funeral and medical professions Mornington Peninsula Funerals has its home in Dromana, where loved ones will be cared for right through until final farewells. The company directors all personally work in the business; offering friends and relatives flexibility to visit at any time to pay their respects. Whether it’s after-hours, on a weekend or a public holiday, no extra service fees will be charged.

“Your loved one should always be near. You should always be welcome to visit.” said CoDirector of Mornington Peninsula Funerals, Andrew Ternes. To reduce stress on families at a difficult time, MP Funerals Directors offer to visit families at home to arrange funerals – with or without a service. If preferred, meetings can take place in their Dromana office. It’s their mission to help families honour the lives of loved ones in a manner and setting most relevant to them. Whether it be at a church, by the beach, in a sporting facility or at one of the other many beautiful venues across the Peninsula, there is something for everyone.


Maths awards for top teachers BONEO Primary School teachers Liz Dewar and Ryan Jellie are joint winners of the $10,000 Outstanding Primary Teacher Choose Maths Awards announced at the 2019 Australian Mathematical Sciences Institute Awards. They and the school received an extra $1000 each for finishing in the top 10 meaning they will share $6000 and the school $6000. After discovering that student outcomes in mathematics were on a downward trend, the passionate educators set about transforming the way students and teachers viewed the learning and teaching of maths in their school. They developed a plan to transform maths instruction and improve student engagement through a full mathematics audit and, with the support of the principal Mandy Whitworth, secured extra funds to buy resources for the classrooms. Among a series of “big ideas to explore the basics of maths” they staged a meteor crash in the school’s grounds which prompted a range of learning experiences from research projects about space to calculating the size of the meteor. In other learning adventures they staged three dig sites for dinosaur bones with classes taking turns to visit the sites to draw and measure the items found. Students also baked huge cupcakes after calculating what ingredients to buy and how much to pay for them. Ms Dewar and Mr Jellie were among 11 teachers honoured for their innovation, creativity, leadership and mathematical education excellence at the awards which are supported by the BHP Foundation. Principal Mandy Whitworth said the whole school was celebrating their achievements, which had been an 18-month journey. “We have just received feedback that we have improved and grown the learnings of students in years 3-5 after the whole staff embraced the need to change the way we taught maths,” she said. “Liz and Ryan have made a huge difference and we are very proud of them.”

AMSI director Professor Tim Brown said the teachers exemplified the very best of mathematics education. “This year’s winning teachers are helping equip a generation with the necessary mathematics to thrive in the future where mathematical sciences increasingly underpin any thriving community,” he said. “Importantly, the impacts of their innovation, excellence and passion are felt not only in their own classrooms, but across their schools and communities.”

A GROUP of nine women who have grown up together over the past 75 years enjoy nothing better than getting together fortnightly on the Mornington Peninsula. Elaine and Anne Madill, Elaine Haynes, Lorraine Scott, Judith Tindale, Rose Martin, Thelma Morgan, June Hill and Dorothy Evans wouldn’t miss their “girls’ day” lunches for the world. Last week they celebrated 60 years of meeting for lunch at the home of one of their friends’ daughters, Sue Fontana, at Mt Eliza. Two of the women started prep together, and five met up at primary school before joining the Highett Ladies Basketball Club and the Moorabbin National Fitness Club as teenagers. Elaine Haynes and Rose Martin, the first to have babies, started meeting for lunch fortnightly at each other’s homes. The group grew to include their old friends, with the women and their growing number of children catching up for lunch each fortnight. The women live at Rosebud, Baxter, Frankston, Cheltenham, and Rowville. Two live interstate, but still make an effort to catch up on special occasions, such as the 60th anniversary. Ms Haynes said members of the group were “all very proud” of their long-lasting friendships. “Of course, we’ve all had our ups

and downs and periods of grieving, but we have always been there for one another,” she said. “Perhaps the most important thing between us all is that there has never been a cross word spoken.” Making their friendships and companionship easier has been the fact that their husbands all get on well, too, with several working together at a large removals company. Ms Haynes said members of the group often holidayed together. “When the kids were little we’d do picnics, or go to the zoo. Then, when they got a little bit older, we would all meet fortnightly at each other’s homes. “We’d get the children their lunch and afterwards put them to bed for their afternoon sleep and then we’d sit down and have a scrumptious lunch together. “When they got older and were doing their own thing we started going to the Baxter Hotel, because it was halfway from everyone and we love it.” Another of Ms Hayne’s daughters, Cheryle, said: “It’s been a fantastic milestone for them all, and we’ve been brought up on their friendships as a sort of extended family. We call all the women ‘aunty’.” The actual number of “girls’ days” the women have enjoyed takes some calculating. They usually have a break in January but then go back into their usual routine in the first week of the school term, making the total about 1300.

ON THE COVER

HISTORIC EDWARDIAN SPLENDOUR WITH MODERN CONVENIENCES OCCUPYING a special place in the history of Rosebud – the property was the first home to be listed in the local telephone directory - Woyna House was constructed in 1912 and is set on a superb 1087 square metre just moments to the Capel Sound foreshore. At first sight you are treated to a charming weatherboard façade and well-landscaped grounds, alive with colour from rose bushes, maples and magnolias, that surround the authentic period home, and upon entering you feel first-hand the glorious space that only genuine 3.65 metre (12 feet) ceilings can produce. Complete with stained leadlight windows, solid Baltic timber floors and wrap around verandah, buyers are quickly transported back to a time when homes were built to last. Woyna House has had an extensive makeover; there have been major improvements to the kitchen, dining area and lounge and structural work including stumping, electrical wiring and plumbing has all been completed, so buyers can certainly purchase with some assurances here. The modern kitchen is tucked into a sunny corner of the home with a wonderful view of the gardens available through a servery window. Gleaming stone countertops and crisp white cabinets give the space a clean, inviting ambience and appliances include a dishwasher and a stainless-steel oven with gas cook top. There is adjoining dining area and family room with gas log fire that opens to the verandah through a set of French doors. A handsome formal lounge could possibly serve as a large guest bedroom in addition to the stunning master bedroom which showcases beautiful leadlight doors and a bay window. Two more bedrooms each have their own distinct style, and all share the bathroom with original claw-foot bath. Blending Edwardian elegance with contemporary 21st century trends, this charming home is a fantastic opportunity to own a property of distinction in a sought-after beachside location.n

LOVE THIS HOME

FIELD OF DREAMS WITH much of the hard work done in establishing this fantastic rural property, new owners can come aboard and enjoy what is already a fine lifestyle, however with an approved planning permit to build a contemporary four-bedroom home on the site, this sprawling one hectare block can be your very own field of dreams. An eye for quality shines through all of the infrastructure already in place including feature post and rail fencing and landscaping around the perimeter, although a key advantage here is the existing three bedroom cedar home that offers very comfortable accommodation whilst your new build takes place (STCA). A real highlight of the property is the fantastic timber pavilion which showcases the best in outdoor living and entertaining facilities including commercial grade barbecue and kitchen, multimedia & internet access, gas heating and a bathroom. Other features to the property include a large 96 square metre workshop with fully fitted office, a 90,000-litre water tank has an automated irrigation system – main water and gas are connected – and a new grey water treatment plant is in place. With a selection of great schools nearby, this is the time for the family to escape the urban crush and live the rural dream.n

Selfish, destructive vandals are out and about in Hastings

By all means continue to collect our garbage and clean the car parks and the general area near our pier. Otherwise, stay out. Who was the donkey who suggested cutting the double lanes in and out of Rye down to one lane and other daft ideas? Cliff Ellen, Rye

I notice with much sadness that the feral vandals of Hastings have been on the rampage again. A few weeks ago Mornington Peninsula Shire Council took the trouble to plant several trees along Queens Road, Hastings. Within a week they had been smashed and ripped apart. These trees were planted by council to replace trees that had suffered the same fate from these idiots several months ago. What kicks do they get out of vandalising other people’s property and scrawling eyesore idiotic rubbish everywhere? Why? Our shire council has spent a few million dollars of taxpayer money to beautify this area, but these morons want none of it. Again, why? Please do not tell me they are bored. Hastings has a beautiful park to play in; bike paths; a bike and skateboard ramp; a swimming pool and lots more. We have beautiful local beaches. Most of these kids/youths would have the use of the latest technology and computer games. Hastings has a wonderful well-stocked library. They can purchase drawing pads, pencils and paints from the many cheap shops if they enjoy scribbling. There is absolutely no reason to be bored. And please, not the “underprivileged” label. These vandals would have no idea what the word means. They are not venting anger, but the selfish attitude of destructive pleasure. My sympathies are with Jet Nye of Kings Creek Hotel who offered a $1000 reward to find vandals who defaced a portable sign advertising meals at his hotel. Jackie Herron, Hastings

Preserve green wedge

Reliable government Catastrophic. Unprecedented. Worst conditions ever seen. Sometimes I think that those in the loony left live in a time bubble and only pop out when it suits. How’s this from the left’s resident expert on all things climatic, Greta Thornburg:

“If anyone tells you this is a normal cycle or that we have had fires like this before, smile politely and walk away because they don’t know what they are talking about.” Perhaps if she had stayed in class like most 15 year olds she may have learnt about the Black Saturday fires where 173 people lost their lives; Ash Wednesday fires where 75 died; the 1968 Blue Mountains fires that burned from September to November and killed 14; 1939 Black Friday fires that killed 71; or our largest recorded fire in 1851, that burnt a quarter of Victoria. But she didn’t stop there. She also pointed to “unprecedented” flooding in Venice. Once again a lack of schooling let’s her down as this is the sixth time in 1600 years that St Marks Basilica has been flooded, the last time 50 years ago at 1.93 metres with the highest level reached over 200 years ago at 1.96m. This latest flood reached 1.87m. Yes, we need to take action on climate change, but we also need to be told the truth not leftist garbage. I’d rather believe the Morrison government and it’s advisors that are factoring in economics and supply above hysteria than “look at me mum, I’m on telly” kids to guide us into the future. Michael. G Free, Mt Martha

Leave Rye alone Mornington Peninsula Shire is reviewing the existing conditions of the Rye commercial centre and has developed draft urban design guidelines to provide clear design guidance for future development of private land within the Rye commercial core. Doesn’t that all sound wonderful, peachy in fact? We have until 15 December to comment online. I can sum it up to save us all the mental stress. Leave us alone. You have your jet skis and anything else you lump on to Rye to please your councillors.

I applaud Frankston councillors for protecting our valued green wedges and voting against further investigations to rezone this land to industry (“Land needed for jobs” Letters 19/11/19). Ginevra Hosking wrote that it is possible to have quality green wedges and local high-tech industrial jobs. Indeed, it is. The savings generated through this vote could be invested into regenerating Frankston’s other industrial precincts, so they too have a chance to thrive like the Carrum Downs industrial precinct, without the need to chip away at the green wedges. Yes, we want to leave the next generation with a stronger Frankston economy, but not at the expense of environmental or social outcomes. Kylie Culshaw, Seaford

Freedoms at risk The democratic dictator [prime minister Scott] Morrison and his dystopian government is rapidly moving us toward a totalitarian political regime. Tyranny and oppression abound: using federal police to raid the homes of reporters who report government misdeeds; jailing whistleblowers for the same; and perverting journalistic freedom with their freedom of information policies. And now trying to implement new laws to stop citizens from protesting for a better world. Morrison claims that citizens with a point of view are out to “deny the liberties of Australians”. Never a word or action to criticise the corporate mafia, their lobby groups and peak bodies from spewing disinformation, fake news, and outright lies (tobacco, asbestos, Exxon-USA, Ford’s Pinto memo and, oh yes, the banks). Seems it is OK for the government to speak out about those they want boycotted (Morrison Westpac; David Littleproud - “boycott Aldi and

Coles”). We should keep in mind two quotes by anthropologist Margret Mead: “Never ever depend upon institutions or government to solve any problem. All social movements are founded by, guided by, motivated by and seen through by the passion of individuals”, and “Never believe that a few caring people can’t change the world. For, indeed, that’s all who ever have”. This Dystopian democratic dictatorship continues to erode the most basic tenants of freedom and spits in the face of democracy. This totalitarian democratic dictatorship is interested in only big bucks, with no room for social conscience or social justice at all. The constitution of the US, in its First Amendment, guarantees that Congress will “make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the government for a redress of grievances.” Joe Lenzo, Safety Beach

No ‘emergency’ I note that the new mayor of Frankston, Cr Sandra Mayer, proposes that her council declare a “climate emergency”. One presumes that Cr Mayer is responding (in a heartfelt manner, surely) to the recently published climate emergency report supposedly signed by 11000 scientists, including (I kid you not) those wellknown climatologists Mickey Mouse and Annie Aardvark. For all we know, Donald Duck, Elmer Fudd and Yosemite Sam may also have signed. Unfortunately, this report is just another on top of 41 doomsday predictions made by alarmists over the last 50 years, not one of which has come true. Are we expected to allow C r Mayer to initiate costly, ineffective, meaningless expenditure in Frankston, pursuing the pipe dream of climate control? No thanks. I will be furious if the Mayor persuades Council to spend one cent of ratepayers’ money on this virtue-signalling nonsense. Michael Long, Frankston

100 YEARS AGO THIS WEEK...

Captain Bruce’s speech plunged into darkness Compiled by Cameron McCullough PERHAPS no community in the State has suffered greater inconvenience, and annoyance through inadequate lighting than the town of Frankston. The grievance is one of long standing and although repeated assurances have been given that cause for complaint would be remedied the users of electric light are still minus a satisfactory service. The experience at Capt Bruce’s meeting in the Frankston Hall last Tuesday night was not one calculated to reflect credit on the town. When the candidate was about half way through his speech the electric light suddenly failed and the hall was plunged into absolute darkness. Capt Bruce, showing no sign of being disconcerted, continued to address his large audience and his hearers showed approval by encouraging cries of ‘Carry on’. The chairman made the best use of a box of matches, and when these became exhausted someone handed up an electric bull’s eye which served to make the darkness visible. Then Capt. Sherlock endeavored to light the gas jets, but the mantles appeared to be missing and the light did not penetrate further than the stage. It is contended that no blame attaches to the Electric Light Co for the failure on Tuesday night. The theory is advanced that a wire “fused” – a mishap likely to happen to the best regulated supplies. Perhaps this explanation is the correct one. But it is not the first time that audiences in the local hall have had similar experiences and the repetitions is becoming tedious, not to say intolerable.

The Progress Association intend to bring the matter under the notice of the Shire Council. *** MR. M. J. Canny, who has been appointed Outdoor Traffic Superintendent at the Railway Department, is well known in Frankston, and spends much of his time here in the summer months. His many friends offer congratulations on his appointment to such an important post. *** IT is not generally known that Mr. George Shepherd, of Somerville, has submitted his resignation as a justice of the peace to the Attorney-General. His action will be regretted by all who know him and are acquainted with his long and honourable career in the public life of the district. *** THE flags were flying in Frankston on Tuesday to welcome Pte. Bert Wilson who has just returned from abroad, bringing his bride with him. He is a brother of Mrs. D. Pietrie and Mrs. J. Williams. *** MR. James Grice. J.P. (president of the Frankston Agricultural and Pastoral Society ), is anxious that the Lieut.Governor (Sir William Irvine) who at one time represented this district in the House of Representatives, should open the show on the 15th January next. The unanimous wish of the committee was that the ceremony should be carried out by Mr Grice, but in deference to his expressed desire, it is likely that the Lieut.-Governor will be asked to attend the function. *** TONIGHT (Friday) a welcome home to

a number of the boys recently returned from active service will take place at Frankston and tomorrow night a similar function will be held at the Recreation Hall, Langwarrin. *** ON Saturday 6th December a sale of gifts will be opened in the Recreation Hall, Langwarrin in aid of the Church of England Building Fund, commencing at 3 o’clock. In the evening an attractive programme will be submitted to conclude with a dance. See advertisement. *** HIGHLY satisfactory progress is being made by the Frankston Brass Band under the leadership of Bandmaster Blaskett. Practices are well attended and the players are all showing great interest and enthusiasm. New instruments costing something like £30 have been secured and with this addition the equipment is considered to be quite up-to-date. The band’s first appearance in public will be awaited with interest. *** THE monthly meeting of the Seaford progress association will be held tomorrow (Saturday) night when an interesting list of subjects will be submitted for debate. *** LAST Saturday evening a rare musical treat was afforded Frankston residents when the Richmond Presbyterian Church Choir rendered Maunder’s Cantata “Penitence Pardon and Peace” in the Frankston Mechanics’ Hall. The choir consisted of about 20 voices under the direction of Mr H. Da-

vis and the principal parts were taken by Miss D. Earle and Mr R. Grant. *** MR J. Wyatt announces that he is commencing business as a butcher at Seaford and solicits a share of public patronage. Mr Wyatt who has erected new concrete premises on the main road near Howell’s Stores, intends running the business on up-to-date lines, and will stock small goods of every description as well as dairy produce. *** MR. James Grice presided at the fiftieth annual meeting of the Old Colonists’ Association of Victoria, which was held in the Town Hall on Monday last. At a special meeting prior to the general meeting Mr James Wright was elected as a trustee in place of the late Mr Herbert Power. Rule 40 of the association was amended so as to give donors of cottages prior to November 23, 1893 the right of nomination similar to that enjoyed by donors after that date. Messrs James Grice, Bland Holt, T. H. Payne, C. Salter and W. G. Sprigg, the five councillors, were re-elected. The balance sheet showed that the permanent and endowment funds amounted to £45,000 and from other sources the association would benefit to the extent of £20,000. It was stated that the association had invested in the Commonwealth War Loans. *** NOW that water is being supplied to the naval base Flinders, the Water Commission has been able to concentrate on the supplies to towns that will be served by the Mornington Peninsula scheme.

It is probable that the main parts of the reticulation along the foreshore from Frankston to Mordialloc, and also, at Mornington will be ready for use before the close of the summer. The commission is now considering the advisability of meeting the requests for an extension of the scheme to a number of towns beyond Mornington. Preference, however, will be given to those centres where the local authorities have already agreed to take supplies. The chairman of the commission (Mr Cattanach) stated on Saturday that the scheme when completed will be one of the most extensive urban systems of supply. It will embrace twenty townships divided by long distances, but drawing supplies from the one source. The Bunyip River and its neighboring creeks are showing splendid flows, and there is no doubt that in the head waters there is a supply that will serve the present population of the Peninsula many times over. *** ON Monday last Frankston was visited by a large party of railway officials, including Mr Gilchrist, Chief Engineer, and Mr Moloney, Metropolitan Superintendent, who inspected the Frankston station and yards in connection with the electrification of the Frankston line. It took four motor cars to accommodate the draftsmen, and other members of the staff attending the officers above named. A stop was also made at Seaford where it is proposed to construct a sub-station. *** FROM the pages of the Mornington Standard, 28 November 1919

Down to the wire: Mornington and Peninsula OB both ended up on 247 runs when stumps were called. Picture: Alan Dillon

Moorooduc thump Pearcedale, Mornington and Peninsula OB end in a tie By Brodie Cowburn

PENINSULA

A BRILLIANT performance from Moorooduc has seen them claim an outright win over Pearcedale at home. Pearcedale were bowled out for just 110 in their first innings, which Moorooduc chased down with pace. Moorooduc ended up being bowled out for 222 off just 41 overs, allowing them another opportunity to take on Pearcedale’s batsmen. Pathum De Mel was Moorooduc’s best, smashing 7 sixes on his way to an entertaining total of 70. Pearcedale’s innings got off to a horror start when they lost their opening batsman for a duck off a run out. Things didn’t get much better for them as they were bowled out for 102, handing their opponents an outright victory. Heatherhill struggled badly in their clash against Red Hill on Saturday, being bowled out for just 69 runs. Chasing down 235 runs to win, Heatherhill got nowhere near it. Simon Dart was Red Hill’s best bowler, posting figures of 4/22. Heatherhill were made to follow on, but prevented further embarrassment by batting out the day without loss of wicket. A big 142 run partnership helped Somerville claim victory over Main

Ridge last weekend. Chasing 133 to win, Somerville made quick work of it. Brenton Alp was in fine form and made 86 runs. Number three batsman Brad McDonald also impressed, scoring 80. Somerville passed their target with 9 wickets in hand.

DISTRICT

CARRUM have defeated Mt Martha in a low scoring affair at Roy Dore Reserve. Carrum set a total of 133 in the first innings, which may have proved a difficult total to defend in other circumstances. Luckily for them, their bowlers were in fine form. Mt Martha struggled badly with the bat, and ended up all out for only 95 runs. Shaun Foster was brilliant for Carrum, posting figures of 6/24 off 15 overs. At Belvedere Reserve, Seaford Tigers defended their first innings total of 239 against Hastings. Tom Burgdorf was the pick of the bowlers for the Tigers on day two, taking 5/27 off 12 overs to wipe out the tail end. Hastings were bowled out for 158, well and truly short of what they needed to win. Dromana had a good day at home on Saturday, playing host to Crib Point. Dromana scored 230 runs the

weekend prior to set their opponents a difficult target to chase down. Crib Point started poorly and ended up at 3/27, which they could not recover from. Scott Clark came in late and scored a half century, but it wasn’t enough. His side was bowled out for 154. Delacombe Park had a bad day against Rosebud, being bowled out for just 65. They were chasing 145 to win, but couldn’t get close.

SUB DISTRICT

FRANKSTON YCW have claimed a thumping win over Rye away from home at RJ Rowley Reserve. YCW set 226 runs to win on day one, and Rye struggled badly to reach it. Outside of Cameron Dunn’s half century, there was little to celebrate for Rye. They were bowled out for 111. Rye came in for a second innings and struggled again, being bowled out just 75 this time. A score of 72 from Jayden Barker almost got Carrum Downs over the line against Boneo, but his side just fell short. Chasing 221 to win, Carrum Downs’ run chase got off to a horror start when they lost both openers for ducks, Having to work from 2/0, they needed someone to stand up and be a hero. Number eight batsman Barker ended

up being the star performer for Carrum Downs, but his efforts were too little too late. Carrum Downs ended up all out for 184, 37 runs short of a win. Skye weren’t able to chase down their target of 280 in their battle against Ballam Park last weekend. Skye were bowled out for 160 runs and made to follow on. They fared better in their second innings and scored 0/107, but were still handed a first innings loss. At Bunguyan Reserve, Tyabb easily defended their total of 253 against Balnarring. They bowled them out for 116.

PROVINCIAL

NOTHING separated Peninsula OB and Mornington at the end of their two day clash, as they played out a thrilling tie. Old Boys were bowled out for 247 on day one, and looked to be in a good position to defend it. None of Mornington’s top order batsmen managed to have any effect on the game, leaving it all for the middle order and tail end to do. Number seven batsman Thomas Panich saved the day for Mornington, scoring 91 not out to help put their run chase back on track. He was helped by number nine batsman Kurt Nestor, who scored a half century. The game was poised to go down

to the wire, with Mornington needing just a few runs to win with one wicket in hand. Unfortunately for them the clock worked against them, and when stumps was called they finished with a score of 9/247. The match was declared a tie. James La Brooy managed to claim a five wicket haul for Peninsula OB on day two. At Overport Park, Mt Eliza were able to defend their first innings total of 253 against Baden Powell. A partnership of 139 runs between Craig Entwistle and Rhys Elmi, with scores of 70 and 73 respectively, put Baden Powell in with a good shot. Unfortunately for Baden Powell, none of their other batsmen were up to the task. They ended up 35 runs short of a result when they lost their final wicket for 218. At Lloyd Park, Langwarrin managed to chase down Flinders’ day one total of 134. Travis Campbell’s half century was the highlight of the day. Flinders’ best performer was Kane Hawkins, who cleaned up the tail end and posted career best bowling figures of 6/16 off just 10 overs. Sorrento had a good result on the weekend, defending their total of 222 against Baxter, who ended up all out for 151.

SOUTHERN PENINSULA NEWS scoreboard

Morrison, Packer, Mitchell go SOCCER

By Craig MacKenzie NEWLY promoted Somerville Eagles has been rocked by the resignations of senior coach Scott Morrison, assistant Stan Packer and goalkeeping coach Stuart Mitchell. All three resigned last week due to a difference of opinion with director of football Zach Peddersen over Somerville’s refusal to participate in the 2020 Steve Wallace Memorial Cup. The tournament commemorates the late Langwarrin president who was an icon of the sport in the local area. Peddersen claimed that his club had previously been snubbed by Wallace Cup organisers. “We have never been invited in years and the committee has never received any information or invite about the Wallace Cup,” Peddersen said. “We built Somerville to be different to the other clubs so we don’t want to do what other clubs do, and we don’t think it’s a good idea to put our players on display against local rivals, especially those in the same league. “I make recommendations to the committee and it was agreed we wouldn’t participate if we were invited.” Wallace Cup invites are usually made to the various senior coaches and Morrison had accepted on behalf of Somerville. Morrison believes that the club’s stance left him and his assistants with no room to manoeuvre. “Myself, Stan and ‘Smitchy’ all stood our ground for what we believe in,” Morrison said. “We wanted to participate and we believed we should’ve been in it to support a man who did so much for local football. “When I took up coaching I always stated that it would be my way in regards to the team and football matters [and] if I want to stay true to myself and what I believe in then I couldn’t continue anymore. “I made it clear to them when this started that there would be no winners here if they went down this path. “They’ve now lost coaches and I imagine players plus they have pulled out of the [Wallace Cup] day. “The club will now be tarnished which is a shame [but] hopefully they learn from this, adjust things at a committee level that need adjusting and move forward.” Morrison, Packer and Mitchell played pivotal roles in Somerville’s State 5 South title triumph this year and were re-appointed last month.

Morrison and Dave Greening were co-coaches throughout the 2019 season and Morrison took over as senior coach for 2020 with Greening appointed reserves coach. It’s unclear whether or not Greening will stay at Somerville. “To be honest I’m still taking this all in,” he said. “I can’t believe how quickly this has escalated and I need to have a good think about where I stand after all this. “I won’t be making an impulsive decision and will take my time before deciding my next move.” Meanwhile soccer grounds throughout Frankston could run up a bill well in excess of $1 million to upgrade floodlighting. That’s the result of a lighting audit conducted by Frankston council and recently released to local clubs Langwarrin, Peninsula Strikers, Frankston Pines, Seaford United and Baxter. No report was available for the two floodlit pitches at Skye United’s home ground at Skye Recreation Reserve. Prior to the council audit Skye United paid for a lighting assessment and sent the results to council but as we went to press had yet to receive a report of the outcome.

The benchmark for the council audit was the Australian Standard (series 2560.2.3) which contains lighting recommendations for training and match competition specific to soccer. This standard has been adopted by Football Victoria, which conducts its own lighting audits before allowing official matches to be played under lights. The council audit looked at a uniform 50-lux benchmark for training standard compliance and 100 lux for match standard compliance even though Langwarrin plays at National Premier League level which demands a 100-lux training standard and a 200lux match standard. The main pitch at Langy’s home ground at Lawton Park lacks floodlights however that project is firmly on the club’s radar. The council audit at Lawton Park was conducted on three surrounding pitches and pitch 4 lighting was inadequate “due to the many failed lamps”. The audit recommended that pitch 4 lighting is returned to full working condition and the lighting measured again and as the results of the assessment were incomplete no estimate of cost could be made.

Pitch 3 (on the far side of the main pitch) failed to comply with training standards and “additional poles are required to adequately illuminate the field”. The preliminary cost of bringing pitch 3 to training level compliance is $80,000 and to match compliance $140,000. The estimates assume that the power supply at Lawton Park is adequate and the supply upgrade at the venue is expected to be completed within six months and is already covered by a federal government grant. Pitch 2 (to the right of the ground entrance) received the most damning report: “The lighting is clearly inadequate. The poles may be unsafe and are not high enough for this field. The luminaires are in poor condition and at end of life.” The estimated cost of bringing pitch 2 up to training standard is $150,000 and to match standard $200,000. Frankston Pines often plays home matches under lights at Monterey Reserve but the lighting of the main pitch has been deemed non-compliant due to inadequate uniformity. The estimated cost of re-aiming the lighting system is $3000. However Pines’ second pitch was deemed “unsuitable for training” and a “replacement of the lighting system is required”. To bring that second pitch up to training standard is estimated to cost $180,000 and to match standard $250,000. The lighting audit at North Seaford Reserve, home of Seaford United, covered four pitches and none of them reached match standard. To properly floodlight the main pitch involves the installation of additional lighting from both existing and additional poles and to bring that pitch up to training standard would cost $100,000 and $150,000 for match standard compliance. Pitch 2 lights didn’t even reach training standard and to do so would cost $120,000 with an additional $30,000 to bring that pitch up to match standard. Pitches 3 and 4 both attained training standard but would require $5000 each to replace lamps and bring them up to match standard.

The main pitch at Baxter Park is not floodlit and although the two other pitches are neither is compliant with training and match standards. The estimated cost of upgrading these pitches to training standard is $120,000 per pitch rising to $150,000 per pitch to bring them up to match standard. The local club that achieved the best audit results was Peninsula Strikers. Its junior wing trains and plays at Ballam Park and Delacombe Reserve and both venues were given a thumbs up regarding training standard. Two new pitches under development at Ballam Park will be floodlit to match standard and should be completed by March. Thanks to a government grant Delacombe Reserve will be upgraded to LED lighting by March. Lights at the senior club’s home ground at Centenary Park have been assessed as adequate for training and the club aims to floodlight its main pitch to match standard. “Our understanding is that it will cost upwards of $180,000 to do so,” club president Adrian Scialpi said. “The main pitch is up for full renovation at the end of next season and we are hoping that the lights will be incorporated into that project as we aim to host night games.” A number of questions regarding possible funding were put to Frankston council last week. Council responded with a statement that said, in part: “The audits and subsequent recommendations regarding local soccer clubs are currently being considered by Council and will be referenced when devising projects for the LongTerm Infrastructure Plan. “Council is also working closely with Football Victoria and the State Government to secure contributions to assist with soccer club lighting works through The World Game Facilities Fund.” The lighting issue was drawn to the attention of local state parliamentarian Paul Edbrooke who was asked to comment but failed to do so. In player news Langwarrin announced last Friday that it had agreed terms with striker John Maclean from Moreland Zebras. Maclean is an ex-Melbourne Victory youth captain and won the NPL2 title with Northcote in 2017. He’s also been with Bentleigh Greens.

Another successful run for Arthurs Seat Challenge THE Arthurs Seat Challenge 6.7km fun run + walk was held on Sunday 10 November. The Challenge is held annually to promote the profile of the Fit to Drive road safety program and to raise funds to enable the continuation of this invaluable program at no cost to the secondary schools on the Mornington Peninsula and Frankston region. The overall male winner was Liam Ryan-Nicholls with a time of 25:53.217, which came extremely close to being a course record, and the overall Female winner was Sarah Klein in 28:09.383. The largest

school entry was won by Bayside Christian College and the fastest school was once again won by Padua College. Team Lyndon took out the award for largest community team for the third year in a row, with a huge team of 55 members! More than half the entrants were part of a team, which reflects the sense of community that the event strives to achieve. It is a family friendly event, encouraging entrants of all ages to participate. The Challenge’s Ambassadors Charlie Robbins, Zak Stolz, and Troy Cullen of Australian Ninja Warrior

fame started the entrants off and then joined them for the trek up Arthurs Seat. This year saw the introduction of finisher medals being issued to all participants, acknowledging the incredible achievement made by entrants of all ages in reaching the summit, including some entrants over the age of 80. The Challenge is only possible due to the invaluable support provided by sponsors, local businesses, schools, community groups, and volunteers. Local community groups Sorrento Rotary, CWA Peninsula Belles, SES Sorrento, Red Hill & Districts Lions

Club, and Mornington Rotary all contributed by kindly providing teams to manage water stations and car parking, as well as course marshals. Major Partners BlueScope WesternPort, Mornington Peninsula News Group, and Spicy Web continued their significant sponsorship of the Challenge this year and all were also heavily involved in the event. Angela Pollard, Chair, Frankston and Mornington Peninsula Fit to Drive said ‘On behalf of the Frankston and Mornington Peninsula Fit to Drive Association and the students in all of our local secondary

schools, I would like to thank everyone who contributed to the success of this important community event. I would like to recognise the generosity of our local ‘Ninja Warriors’ in volunteering as ambassadors, as well as the many people from all sectors of our community who provided their time and support.’ More information about the Fit to Drive program can be found at www. f2d.com.au.

Tahitian Dancer scores barnstorming win HORSE RACING

By Ben Triandafillou MORNINGTON-based racehorse trainer Shane Nichols took out the opening race on Ballarat Cup day with his speedy mare, Tahitian Dancer, on Saturday 23 November. The talented four-year-old daughter of Dawn Approach was looking to make amends after being held up at her previous start at Flemington. Ridden by two kilogram claiming apprentice jockey, Teo Nugent, the speedster drifted to the rear of the field and rounded the corner in last position before letting down strongly in the straight. Storming down the centre of the track, Tahitian Dancer quickly ran past

her rivals before being eased down near the post to score a decisive twolength victory over the Robbie Laingtrained Tatiara and the former New Zealander, She’s A Thief. Trainer Shane Nichols rated her win as potentially the best yet. “I thought from where she was in the run it was unbelievable,” Nichols said. “I reckon it would have to be her peak performance so far in her career and that’s included a Stakes placing as well.” The dominant victory bought up the mares fourth win from her 15 career starts, and her second win this preparation. Her total prize money now sits at $230,000. Since her run, Nichols said she has a looked a treat and has come through

her run in terrific order. Tahitian Dancer will head towards a Stakes race in Brisbane in December before being aimed at the 1300m Fillies and Mares Magic Millions race on the Gold Coast in January.
