Walkers set their sights on a vision

WOMEN taking part in the Coastrek walks on the Mornington Peninsula on Friday 24 May had a clear “vision” – to raise money to tackle blindness. Demonstrating fitness and endurance, hundreds trekked 30 or 60 kilometres to raise money for the Fred Hollows Foundation. The route from Cape Schanck to Point Nepean, or around Point Nepean, took in scenic coastlines, rugged clifftops, rough bush trails and thigh burning soft sand. Participants knew that their efforts were making a difference to those less fortunate. The Fred Hollows Foundation estimates women make up 55 per cent of the world’s blind – and “four out of five of them don’t need to be”. Blindness in women can be especially devastating – impacting their psychological wellbeing, ability to control their own choices, exposure to social discrimination and vulnerability to violence. “If she can’t see, then she can’t work or feed her children,” the foundation says. “Blindness in women has far-reaching consequences, affecting her family and the wider community.” Coastrek initiatives support Fred Hollows Foundation gender initiatives in 25 countries.

Traps for straying cats Keith Platt keith@mpnews.com.au A QUICK fix solution is being offered to property owners annoyed by straying cats. Mornington Peninsula Shire has a new four-step system to reduce the number of cats prowling outside their owners’ properties. The cat traps supplied by the shire can also be used to get rid of unwanted stray cats.

The “start-to-end service cat trapping program” is designed to remove cats “safely and humanely”. The four steps start with asking the shire for a cat trap. If approved, a cage will be delivered “at a time suitable for the resident” (stage 2). If successfully deployed, the cage containing a cat will be collected within 24 hours (stage 3) and taken to the Community Animal Shelter in Mornington “for observation” (stage 4). Trap can only be set from Sunday

to Thursday evenings and collections must take place 8.30am-3.30pm Monday to Friday. The shire identifies a cat as trespassing or wandering any time it is not within its owner’s property. A news release issued by the shire last week said that captured cats would be scanned for microchips to trace their owner. The animal shelter’s lost pets list would also be checked for cats matching the trapped animal’s description. If both lines of inquiry draw a blank,

a picture and description of the cat will be placed on the shire’s website at mornpen.vic.gov.au/lostpets. The future of unclaimed cats will be decided after eight days and a temperament test and vet check. Cats that pass the tests will enter the shire’s adoption program or be placed with a rescue group for rehoming. The shire says nearly 200 unclaimed or surrendered animals have been given new homes through its animal management programs. Rehomed animals are vaccinated,

desexed, microchipped and treated for fleas and worms. Shire residents are given free registration for their new pet. Last year, more than 70 animals found new homes through rescue groups and 130 found new homes through the shire’s adoption program. To organise a cat trap or report a lost animal, call the shire’s environment protection unit on 5950 1050.

Volunteers make ‘world of difference’ at Sorrento THE role and contribution of volunteers was celebrated at a morning tea held at Sorrento Community Centre, Thursday 23 May. Aimed to coincide with National Volunteering Week, the event was part of Australia’s Biggest Morning Tea campaign. Last week, $305 has been raised for the Cancer Council. Sorrento Community Centre says it could not function without its volunteers. “We salute these generous people and acknowledge their contribution,” chairman Shane McMahon said. “Each week they come to share their time and talents so that we can … develop a healthy, connected and vibrant local community of all ages. “Thank you all so much ... you are really ‘making a world of difference’.” Next week Nepean MP Chris Brayne will participate in a Q&A session at Sorrento Community Centre, 11.30am, Friday 31 May. Those interested are invited to come along, ask questions, and hear what the state government has in mind for the southern peninsula. Details: centre manager Heather Barton, 0418 974 994.

same vendor might sell for $740,000 ($60,000 less than desired), but the $1.2 million property was now worth $1.08 million (meaning they would pay only $340,000 more for it – not $400,000). “This is a huge shift in psychology – from feeling negative through the process versus being positive,” he said. Mr Merchan recommended vendors sell before they buy again “especially now in this market”. With most needing a mortgage against their home, he said it would be “wise to revisit your borrowing capacity”. “The last thing you want is to sell your home and then realise that you can’t obtain a loan because of the tightening of credit,” he said. “One of our buyers who attended multiple opens throughout 2018 had their borrowing capacity reduced from $1 million down to $650,000 without any changes to their situation. “This is the impact of the changing landscape within the banking industry. They had to revisit their situation and reassess where they wanted to move.” Nevertheless, Mr Merchan is confident prices will bounce back. “Some fantastic opportunities will present themselves over the coming year,” he said. “Remember, this doom and gloom was evident in 2004-06 and 2010-12: if only you had purchased then.” present this voucher

median had dropped to $1.058 million in this year’s March quarter – down 10.9 per cent. Frankston South’s median had dropped from a high in early 2018 of $841,000 to $720,200 (down 16.8 per cent) while Frankston’s median peaked in the same period at $621,300 but has since dropped to $543,200 (down 14.4 per cent). Mornington’s property median rose to $763,700 in the first half of last year but then fell 10.6 per cent to $682,800 by year’s end. Mt Martha’s median reached a June high of $983,000 and ended the year at $933,300 – a fall of 5.3 per cent.

mean less income. James Merchan, of Impact Realty Group, said Mt Eliza’s total house sales dropped from 83 in the March quarter last year to 57 this year; Frankston South from 93 to 39 and Frankston 187 to 80 in the same period. Mornington’s house sales dropped from 133 in the March quarter last year to 94 and Mt Martha’s from 117 to 70. His figures, taken from property researchers RPData and PropertyData, show price drops in all of the peninsula’s towns and suburbs. Mr Merchan said the Mt Eliza market rose to a new median high in February 2018 of $1.173 million but the

DROPS in property prices and the number being sold on the Mornington Peninsula are being blamed on changes to lending rules in the wake of the banking royal commission. Real estate agents see the price falls as the result of tightening of housing loan credit as banks impose greater scrutiny on loan applicants’ financial situations and spending patterns, as well as gauging their ability to repay loans based on a 7.25 per cent interest rate – not the average advertised rate of 3.8-4.5 per cent. Last week it was suggested this rate could drop to 5.56.5 per cent if two further cuts were made to the cash rate. However, the introduction of more comprehensive credit reporting in July will allow lenders to see a borrower’s full credit history, possibly making loans even harder to get. Adding to the downturn in the residential market are the hits to investors – who make up a significant percentage of potential property buyers. They, too, have suffered from the banks’ crackdown on lending and are also being charged more for loans. Falling prices mean investors are not able to ride a wave of rising capital gains, while weakening rental yields

Langwarrin’s median rose 4.1 per cent last year to reach $621,000 before sliding back to $612,000 at year’s end – the smallest fall of the suburbs covered. Mr Merchan said other periods of house price falls such as 2004-06 (down 5-7 per cent) and 2010-12 (8-10 per cent) were less severe than 2018 onwards (10-18 per cent), but that the bottom may have been reached with prices expected to improve thanks to the predicted two interest rates cuts later this year. “We have now seen the worst and consolidation is taking place,” he said. “Sellers in a declining market may not achieve their dream price and snap up what their property was worth 12 months ago, but when they buy again – either upsizing or downsizing – it is certain they will pay well and truly below what the other vendor would want it to be, too,” he said. He calls this the “change-over effect”. Mr Merchan said vendors did better upsizing their home in a softening market. Price drops in percentage terms affected higher price properties more than lower price properties, he said. For example, in a strong market, if a vendor sold for $800,000 and bought for $1.2 million they paid $400,000 more. In a softening market the “change-over effect” meant the

Public asked about hospital’s future PENINSULA Health wants to hear from the public about the proposed rebuilding of Rosebud Hospital. This comes as chief executive Felicity Topp investigates the suitability of the current site “in meeting the health needs of the Mornington Peninsula community over the next 15 years”. The hospital’s new masterplan was presented to about 150 residents, business owners, GPs and community representatives at two public forums on the Rosebud foreshore last month. As part of the masterplan a feasibility study is investigating rebuilding the hospital on the existing site. “It is vital we continue to offer health services for the local community while any potential future construction occurs,” Ms Topp said.

It is anticipated a multi-level building will be needed to accommodate the required growth in beds, theatre capacity and community health if the hospital remains on the existing site. Bed capacity would jump from 70-160 beds. Current services would remain, with new areas for cancer services, community health services and specialist clinics. Two new operating theatres would replace the old one. “This is an exciting step in our plans to, hopefully, rebuild Rosebud Hospital for the southern peninsula community,” Ms Topp said. “We are keen to hear from residents on what they think of the plans and the overarching design of what a new hospital could look like.” Email: rosebudhospitalproject@phcn. vic.gov.au.

THE temporary concrete and wire fence erected at The Pillars cliff jumping site at Mt Martha in December has gone. Mornington Peninsula Shire Council contracted out its removal early last week. Infrastructure services manager Jessica Wingad said the council will “seek feedback on the commu-

nity’s experiences over the summer period”. “Council will be considering [its] options over coming months to determine long-term management of the site,” she said. The fence, on the Esplanade, cost $140,000 which covered its hire, construction, traffic management and daily maintenance of damage and graffiti.

The fence is credited with cutting down the number of people jumping off the cliffs, although it was criticised for its ugliness and police refused to climb or go around it to check if alcohol laws were being broken. Sightseers and cliff jumpers were back on the cliffs as soon as word of the fence’s passing was spread.

Team sets its sights on Lospalos FORMER Mornington Peninsula Shire councillors Tim Rodgers and Graham Pittock have been taking lessons in how to repair and fit spectacles. Rather than looking for a new career, the pair are part of a team heading off for 10 days in July to improve the sight of people in Lospalos, Timor Leste. The team will be led by optometrist Colleen Hammond, of Rosebud Specsavers, who will carry out eye examinations and measure and fit spectacles. Mr Rodgers and Mr Pittock will act as Ms Hammond’s assistants. The project team will pay its own way, although an appeal has been started to raise $6000 to buy a trial lens set and trial frames, 100 pairs of sunglasses and 1000 pairs of optical prescription glasses. The work will be done in conjunction with the Lospalos hospital, medical professionals, nuns and translators. Eye screening locations have been chosen with the help of Madre Guilhermina Marcal of the Canossian Sisters, which has a clinic in Los Palos. The nuns will contact community members and arrange screenings for those most in need, particularly children. Cr Hugh Fraser said that members of the Friends of Lospalos had previously taken a range of “off the rack” spectacles to Lospalos. “While these spectacles did not meet the range of sight disabilities suffered by the general population, DECKING T/Pine 70x22 KD ACQ ........................... $2.70mt T/Pine 90x22 KD ACQ ........................... $3.50mt T/Pine 140x22 KD ACQ ......................... $6.25mt Merbau 70x19 Random ........................ $4.75mt Merbau 90x19 Random ........................ $6.50mt Merbau 140x22 Random .................... $13.95mt

Measles man visited Mornington A MAN infected by measles twice attended family events at Mornington earlier this month. He visited the Mornington Hotel with family and friends, on the corner of Tanti Avenue, up until 2pm, Saturday 4 May, and again the next day around 10am, and many other places during his stay. The man, in his 30s, had previously arrived from Vietnam and was in Melbourne for almost two weeks on a sightseeing tour. It is believed he may have infected six people, including a baby. After flying out of Tullamarine he was put in isolation in a hospital in Vietnam. Symptoms of measles include fever, coughing, conjunctivitis and a rash that starts on the face. Chief health officer Angie Bone said almost all measles cases in Victoria this year involved people not being fully immunised against the disease, had travelled overseas, or had been in contact with travellers from overseas. The measles-mumps-rubella (MMR) vaccine is available free from GPs and some pharmacies for all eligible adults born since 1966.

With Stephen Taylor

Bashed brothers may be charged TWO brothers injured in an early-morning fracas in a Mornington car park earlier this month were arrested and interviewed by detectives last week. A 20-year-old Mt Martha man is expected to be charged on summons with a weapons offence while a 17-year-old from Mornington is expected to be charged on summons with criminal damage, assault and using a false document. A Lyndhurst man, 28, allegedly involved in the incident in the Centro car park on Saturday 4 May handed himself in to police next day and was interviewed and released. The two Mornington men were walking through the car park on Railway Grove after leaving a nearby hotel. They became involved in an altercation with a group of men about 3am. Both were allegedly punched and knocked to the ground before bystanders intervened. The group then drove off. The brothers were taken to The Alfred hospital with head injuries. Anyone with information is urged to call Detective Alex Montgomery 5978 1300 or Crime Stoppers 1800 333 000.

Detectives said the offenders may have kicked in the garage door from the backyard as access to the front of the garage is from a shared driveway.

Three break-ins

A MORNINGTON Peninsula man, 48, had his licence suspended and was fined $604, as well as having his car impounded for 30 days at a cost of $1006, after allegedly driving his Subaru WRX at 101kph in a 60kph zone at Inverleigh, near Geelong, 9pm, Saturday 18 May.

A spate of government warnings about the company stemming from 2007 up to the present relate to what are described as “illegal” business practices. Staff members are reportedly intimidating and often demand payment upfront and then fail to carry out the work. Police said they target vulnerable members of the community – mainly the elderly. The M&M Greenworks Tree Services vehicle picture was taken on Thursday 16 May. Anyone seeing it, or company representatives, is asked to call police at Mornington, 5970 4900.

Scam tree workers

Jet ski stolen

ELDERLY residents in particular are being urged to avoid dealing with a company or staff representing M&M Greenworks Tree Services.

A SEAWOO jet ski and trailer valued at $18,000 were stolen from a unit in Green Island Avenue, Mt Martha, on the morning of Tuesday 7 May.

Speeding driver fined

THREE aggravated burglaries in Mt Eliza on Saturday 18 May have detectives on the hunt for multiple offenders – or possibly the same one. Three sets of keys were stolen from a house in Attunga Way while family members were asleep, between midnight and 7am. Police were told the house’s front door had been left open. The offenders appeared to have searched through several cars for valuables before running off. A resident confronted a man who broke into his Jacksons Road home at 4.40am. The burglar entered the property through the backyard. Once inside, he stole two remote controls, a Gucci purse and wallet with a total value of $1000. The resident, 47, thought a noise was caused by one of his children returning home. The offender fled in the dark and no description was given. Valuables including cash, credit cards, passport, a set of Mazda 3 keys, an Apple iPad and a Celine handbag all valued at $6000 were stolen from a house in Coles Court the same night. A couple in their mid-50s and their son, 30, were asleep upstairs. The offenders may have entered through an unlocked front door and then walked undetected around the downstairs dining and kitchen area. Anyone with information on these incidents is urged to call Crime Stoppers 1800 333 000.

Bottle shop hit – again MORNINGTON Peninsula detectives are investigating another theft from a bottle shop in Hastings. This follows a similar incident in which a man also stole alcohol from a liquor store (“Bottle shop theft” The News 22/5/19). In the latest incident a man entered the shop twice – Saturday 4 and Thursday 9 May. After distracting the attendant on both occasions, he selected several bottles of alcohol, hid them in his clothing, and left the store without paying. He was wearing a black hoodie with white writing on the sleeves, front and back. Anyone with information is asked to contact Senior Constable David Kennedy 5970 7800 or Crime Stoppers 1800 333 000 or make a report online at crimestoppersvic.com.au

New tack for the marina man

water frontage and up to 20 buildings on the south side of Yaringa, which the Mornington boat manufacturer had been searching for “for years”. Borzecki is coy about the price, citing confidentiality concerns, but the deal will allow the 600 berths to grow to 1000, with dry-stacking arrangements and associated businesses making sails, canopies, masts and marine windows among a dozen or so different trades. The sale will free up Borzecki to develop his prized apartments on rezoned residential land on the northern side of the 24-hectare site. “The apartments started as a financial exercise, or joint venture, but at the moment the market is not on the right side of the curve to be viable,” he said. “And we were held up in Canberra for two years over Ramsar environmental concerns.” But he is confident the apartments, each of 100 square metres with lifts and their own private marina berths, will be built. While significant, the development would be a 10th of the size of Martha Cove on the Port Phillip side of the peninsula. Borzecki says his plan for a $5-$6 million, four-lane public boat ramp at the marina still needs Mornington Peninsula Shire Council approval. The 300-400 boats using it in summer would need somewhere to park afterwards tying them to the marina precinct. “The ramps would take the pressure off the Stony Point and Hastings public boat ramps, and get cars towing boats off the freeway before they even get to the Mornington Peninsula,” he said.

New tack: After 33 years at the helm Stefan Borsecki changes gears. Picture: Keith Platt

STEFAN Borzecki has marinas in his blood. “All my life I have been designing them,” he said, citing his role in the “niche industry” of marina development, including those at Hervey Bay and Sanctuary Cove while working for former business high-flyer Christopher Skase in the 1980s. After being the original designer and developer for the Western Port Marina, Hastings he bought Yaringa marina at Somerville in 1985. He then poured all his energies into expanding and running it, driven by the idea of creating a complete boating community with associated businesses, restaurant, tourism and a conference centre “My plan was to have something like the Gold Coast City Marina, which is a complete boating precinct,” he said. “I did everything I could; my objective was to have the area rezoned like the Marina Mirage at Port Douglas, which I had done with [Christopher Skase’s] Qintex.” But when he planned a major expansion in 2009, he found he was butting heads with all levels of government, finally gaining federal government approval in mid-2013 and state government approval in 2016 for a $95 million, 180-apartment development around an inland waterway. The engineer says he is feeling “relaxed” after entering into a financial agreement with Hart Marine owner Mal Hart to sell industrial land with a

Call for comment on planning strategies RESIDENTS are being invited to have their say on planning for the Mornington Peninsula’s future. The Neighbourhood Character Study, which will affect the whole shire, and the Western Port Coastal Villages Strategy, which will only affect Western Port towns, are both in their draft stages. The shire says the Neighbourhood Character Study is designed to retain the “unique values” of residential areas, capturing the key characteristics of each area. The Western Port Coastal Villages Strategy will provide policy and guidelines to manage development on public and private land to retain and enhance township character and address climate change impacts relating to sea level rise. A draft framework has been prepared for each Western Port town that sets out a vision, the preferred character and design guidelines for the commercial, industrial, and foreshore areas. “These studies are underpinned by the adopted Housing and Settlement Strategy and aim to improve and protect the unique characteristics of the Mornington Peninsula as set out in the Council Plan 2017-21,” the mayor Cr David Gill said. “This is a great opportunity for [us all] to discuss solutions about coastal climate change, as well as understand the existing and preferred character attributes of our townships. The last step will be to include the guidelines in our planning scheme.” Community consultation began yesterday Monday 27 May and closes 5pm, Sunday 7 July. To view the draft reports and provide input visit: mornpen.vic.gov.au/haveyoursay Documents are also available in hard copy at the shire’s offices at Rosebud, Mornington and Hastings.

School’s special day of fun STUDENTS at Mornington Special Developmental School made the most of their open day last week by taking part in CFA hose drills, sitting in a police car, playing ukuleles and jumping in a bouncing castle. The school, in Robertson Drive, encouraged present, prospective and interested friends to join in the activities while seeing what the school has to offer, Wednesday 22 May. Students talked about their classes and school

programs, and took part in hands-on demonstrations in the school’s gardening program. “It was a great day,” principal David Newport said. “We had more people than we expected turn up – including a couple of former students. “We’re a small, family-oriented school providing an education for special needs students in the Mornington-Hastings area and the day showed us how much the community supports and appreciates our school.”

Pier works a plus for boating and fishing

BOATERS, fishers and other recreational water users can look forward to safer and easier access at Rye Pier. Nepean MP Chris Brayne said the state government would spend $500,000 to restore the low-landing, build a ramp to improve access, install more casual public berths and upgrade berthing facilities for larger commercial fishing charter operators. “The new low landing will make it easier for all recreational water users to enjoy the rich marine life and calm waters off Rye pier,” he said.

“The recently upgraded boat ramp, kids’ playground and numerous shops and eateries make Rye a popular destination for visitors. He said the state government was working to establish the Better Boating Fund, which will collect boat registration and marine licence fees for boating facilities and safety initiatives. Fishing and boating minister Jaala Pulford said the upgrade was a “win for residents and visitors who can look forward to better access at a favourite boating and fishing destination.”

Shire ‘demands’ deposits for containers

Stephen Taylor steve@mpnews.com.au TAILS were wagging and tongues lolling at a special fundraiser in Mornington last week. Social dog walking group Colliewobbles Rescue and Rehoming Australia held a sausage sizzle outside sponsor Best Friends at Peninsula Homemaker Centre, Saturday 18 May. And, for a bit of fun on polling day, they put their preferred candidate forward for election. The social walking group, which began in 2014, aims to socialise and rehabilitate neglected and abused dogs rescued from non-compliant breeding kennels. The breed-specific group focuses on rough collies, smooth collies and Shetland sheepdogs. Founder Philip Cassap said the club’s 400 members – from the Mornington Peninsula, Surf Coast, Geelong, Echuca, Shepparton, Sale and the greater Melbourne area – walked their dogs in controlled environments on the first Saturday of every month. Each walk attracts 30-40 collies and 5-20 shelties. “It never fails to amaze me how far people will travel to walk their dogs together, and share stories and love for the breed among friends,” he said. “If Colliewobbles was a social experiment it would be classed as a success story.” The walking group is not affiliated with dog clubs or associations. It charges no joining fees but owners are asked to follow a few simple dog

A “LOUD and clear” message from the recent waste forum has prompted Mornington Peninsula Shire Council to demand that the state government “introduce a container deposit scheme as soon as practical”. Speaking after the Tuesday 15 May council meeting, the mayor Cr David Gill said: “We heard loud and clear from passionate community groups that we need to take action in ensuring plastics and glass are recycled. “We fully support a container deposit scheme as part of the Municipal Association of Victoria’s rescue our recycling action plan. It is an important measure and will help bolster community education.” The shire will send a submission to the state government inquiry into recycling and waste management, particularly referring to container deposit schemes.

Electoral coverage had ‘a very Liberal bias’ I would like to voice my disgust at The News as I feel you were biased and dishonest in your coverage of policies in the 18 May federal election. It was clear that you have a very Liberal bias with absolute rubbish being printed across full pages regarding the Labor government [sic]. Many of us in Red Hill were amazed and shocked at your lack of journalistic integrity, something I have attempted to teach students to be [sic]. Be ashamed, be very ashamed. My husband and I will never pick up one of your pathetic attempts of journalism and “news” again. The Liberal government has broken its first election policy re no tax cuts till ???? - good on ya guys, just the beginning of lies from the Liberal government that you neglected to discuss. Rosemary Henderson, Red Hill

‘Vindictive’ decision Of all the strange and unfathomable things done by politicians in recent years – and there have been plenty of them – surely the decision by Julia Banks to walk away from the federal seat of Chisholm, in favour of standing for Flinders, must rank way up near the top. The Liberal Party has won Chisholm with a virtually unknown candidate, so it would appear that Ms Banks would have romped in there, either as a Liberal or independent candidate, had she chosen to run again. Instead, she decided to tackle Flinders where, realistically, she had no chance of winning. One can only assume that Ms Banks also considered Chisholm unwinnable and so decided to go out in a blaze of glory by directing her preferences away from Greg Hunt, in the hope of unseating him for opposing Malcolm Turnbull, of whom she is a dedicated supporter. As a consequence Ms Banks is now unemployed, in terms of politics at least. Whether you support Greg Hunt or not, at least he’s a local, which Ms Banks is clearly not, despite what I see as her somewhat spurious claims. To me, her decision to stand in Flinders now appears vindictive and it will be interesting to see if the southern Mornington Peninsula hears from her again. Denis Mason, Sorrento

tions, taking to the streets to protect their future will not. This is the great divide, particularly here on the peninsula with an older demographic. Saturday’s result was a setback, but very soon those informed kids who are standing up and want to be heard will be able to vote. Kelvin Stingel, Mornington Peninsula Greens, Blairgowrie

What can’t be cured must be endured? Warning signs, the heart pouring out the blood, a likely panic attack, a Scott Morrison victory on a platform of the rich getting richer, the evils of voting for Bill Shorten. Voters led by the nose, indubitably. Come 11pm the valium did the job. One Nation, Palmer, The Greens all contributed, the bottom line being Shorten’s unpopularity. When Bill was elected leader, a gamble, his restricted ability to communicate. Personalities prevail and Morrison, in the two-horse race, won, notwithstanding Shorten’s great back-up team. His policies, negative gearing, capital gains tax, weekend loadings, wage increases, health and climate change, good stuff; not so the additional “bits and pieces” - the electric cars, dividend imputations (justified, but too much too soon?) agreeing to the five per cent home ownership deposit, the dental care, the roads in Victoria and nothing positive on Adani, despite his common sense reply. We await the future (fate?) of “our” ABC, the refugees on Manus and Nauru, additional tax benefits to the big earners. Can I last another three years? God only knows, and I’m not so sure about him either. Breathe deeply, from the diaphragm. Cliff Ellen, Rye

group members to grapple with while our paid representatives work, get on and govern. Are they worth the effort? Do you get your money’s worth? Disillusionment with our democratic way of life, not to mention our spiritual welfare, is still an issue. A society based on what football team you support or how well you did to protect your economic well being at the last election, is a poor substitute for a healthy inclusive and caring community. Without our volunteers we would be a lesser people with thousands of motivated citizens contributing to make the peninsula a happier and more comfortable place to live. From the charity shops, patient transport, animal welfare, migrant programs, flora and fauna protection and others, we owe undying gratitude. May goodness and good health be with them all as they do the dirty work that many of our highly paid representatives don’t nominally get involved in. They owe it in turn to open their doors, invite their constituents in, listen to and address their concerns. Too often such petitioners are dismissed, belittled, and treated as second-class citizens. Now’s the time for MPs to show they care, are capable of inspirational leadership, understand peoples’ fears and needs and try their best to heal division. Ian Morrison, Mt Eliza

Work choices for MPs

At the Blairgowrie polling booth on Saturday [18 May] a lovely group of four quite elderly ladies handing out for [Liberal candidate] Greg Hunt MP were quite openly and loudly laughing about climate change, so I politely asked them what do they think about the 97 per cent of scientists who agree it’s a manmade issue which needs to be dealt with now. “Well, all that science stuff is rubbish,” they said, and off they laughed again, possibly thinking about their franking credits. With respect, they will probably be gone within 10 years or so, but the younger genera-

Now that we can get back to normal with our elected representatives off to Canberra out of our hair and, hopefully, with their mug shots removed from fields, trees and, never to be forgiven, Mornington shopping centre which chose to accept political advertising to help meet operating expenses. Real issues such as transport facilities, land banking by overseas investors, beach erosion, green wedge protection, shopping centre overdevelopment, social housing and hospitals here on the Mornington Peninsula remain for us ordinary people, retirees, associations and action

BIRD droppings on Main Street, Mornington

The plan to produce hydrogen from brown coal and ship it to Japan is a bit of a con at Australia’s expense. Shunsuke Sakuma [of Hydrogen Engineering Australia] is rather economical with the truth in making it seem so easy (“Australia could be leading producer of hydrogen fuel” Letters 22/5/19). First, the process requires significant energy to power the conversion process. Second, there is a huge amount of CO2 produced, which would need to be stored. Carbon capture and storage is nice in theory, but has not been successfully used at any large scale. Third, there is a significant residue of sulphur and other solid impurities which is not being acknowledged or addressed. Fourth, there is a substantial energy cost in compressing and transporting the hydrogen all the way to Japan. The cleaner way to make hydrogen is from water (H2O) by electrolysis using renewable energy. Or Japan could use some of its nuclear reactors, and pollute its own backyard. Simon Westfold, Bittern

Water solution I do not think that Mornington Peninsula Shire’s efforts at cleaning the bird droppings along Main Street, Mornington could be said to be “regular” (“Roosting birds leave their mark” The News 21/5/19)). As a frequent public transport user to the CBD, I walk along Main Street early in the morning to catch the bus to Frankston railway station and I rarely see the footpath clean. Perhaps the shire could adopt what appears to be the daily early morning practice I have observed at Frankston station, where the footpaths are cleaned with high-pressure water. Come on council step up to the plate. Alex Eadie, Mornington

Vote for free I have read quotes attributed to a Dr Mark Fancett, president of the Peninsula Preservation Group, and it got me to thinking: just who actually are these people and who actually elected them? Of the 110,729 electors on the Flinders electoral roll, how many voted for Dr Fancett? Same goes for the officious-sounding Mornington Peninsula Residents and Ratepayers Association. How many of 110,000 residents actually voted for John Cain? It seems that all we have to do in this day and age is come up with a catchy name, vote yourself president and then comment away to your heart’s content. If any readers are interested in joining my new group, Peninsula Over 100 Year Residency Group, they are more than welcome. Michael G Free, Mt Martha

Caught short Who was responsible for two teams wearing almost identical colours, including shorts, playing against each other in the recent interleague football game, Mornington Peninsula v Ovens and Murray? It reminds me of the days when Essendon coach, Kevin Sheedy, sent his away team out to play at the MCG in black shorts against the home team Demons correctly wearing black shorts. At least it could be assumed he couldn’t care less about the spectators I suppose, as no one at my end of the ground could tell who had the ball at the other end. Ian Dale, Rosebud

100 YEARS AGO THIS WEEK...

Empire day celebrated by local children Compiled by Cameron McCullough EMPIRE Day was celebrated locally on Friday when the children were given a right royal time. For weeks they had been looking forward to this day as their elders each year make it an occasion for merry making and also a time to instill patriotic sentiments into the young minds. The Baxter school children joined with Somerville and together they marched to the Mechanics’ Hall where Empire Day speeches were delivered by Messrs C. Murray W. Carroll, G. Shepherd and S. Uren and patriotic songs were sung by the children. At the conclusion of the program the Union Jack was saluted and then an adjournment was made’ to the Horticultural Hall where the ladies had loaded the tables with various kinds of delicacies. What a sight those long tables presented! The children and adults soon showed their appreciation of the good things provided by keeping a small army of waitresses busy replenishing the plates. Luncheon over, Messrs Carroll and Uren moved a vote of thanks to all who had helped to make the gathering a success, and especially to the ladies for the great amount of trouble they had taken over the matter. This was carried by acclamation, the children singing. “For they are jolly good ladies.” The children afterwards marched to the park where the sports program was carried out. Great excitement was created in events where one school competed against the other as in Chase Ball, Flag

Races etc. At 4.30pm a return was made to the hall where tea was served after which the children dispersed feeling that they had had a most enjoyable day and the grown ups vended their several ways, homeward and happy in the thought that they had assisted in making the lives of the little ones the brighter for that day at least. *** Seaford Progress Association VANDALISM Mr. Wilshire complained that four ti-trees growing near his residence had been willfully cut down during the night. He had given considerable attention to the trees, and they were an ornament to the road. He immediately informed the police of the act of vandalism, but it was difficult to trace the offenders in such cases. The president said he was glad Mr Wilshire had mentioned the matter. The association might not be able to do anything in the case under notice, but it could perhaps prevent similar acts. Mr. Wilshire said he would be willing to offer a reward for the conviction of the offenders. Mr. Brown moved, and Major Cowper seconded, that the association offer a reward of £5 for the conviction of the offender. – Carried. It was also decided, on the motion of Messrs. Brown and Cotton, that the notice of reward be advertised in the “Standard.” Mr. McCulloch: Who keeps the wood yard around here? Perhaps the

owner would contribute £1 towards the reward. (Laughter.) HERMIT’S CAMP Mr. Armstrong said an inspection had been made of the camp, as arranged. It was in a very dilapidated condition, and he did not think the association could do any thing. Mr. Hunter said if action had been taken when the association first approached the Council, the camp could have been preserved. The stringent condition imposed by the Council prevented, the association from attending to the place. Mr. Moffatt moved that the Council be asked to grant permission to remove the hut. At present it only offered an inducement for tramps to shelter there. Mr. Hunter seconded. Mr. McCulloch thought the motion was a lazy man’s way of getting over a difficulty. The Hermit’s Camp was a landmark which, in its time, had attracted thousands of visitors. He would like to see something done to preserve it. Mr. Matarana: Did the camp ever have any sterling value? Mr. McCulloch: No. Mr. Matarana: Who was the hermit, anyhow? Did he ever do anything that we should trouble about preserving his late domicile? (Laughter.) Mr. McCulloch: His name was Captain Maddox, I believe. I know nothing about him, but I do know that the camp was an attraction to visitors, and was spoken of all over the State. Mr. Brown said if put into repair a caretaker would be wanted. Mr. Neil: Put up a “To Let” notice

(Laughter.) Mr. Martin was in favour of allowing the camp to remain as at present, and he moved an amendment to that effect. Mr. Klauer seconded the motion, and it was carried. *** ALL persons in possession of raffle books, in connection with the Anzac Appeal are request to return same to the treasurer, Mr A. Wilcox, not later than 3rd June. *** THE Secretaries of the Frankston Peace Celebrations Committee acknowledge the receipt of the following additional donations. Dr Plowman, £1 1s; Mr G. B Booth £1 1s; Mr W. William “Rupertstan” £1 1s. *** MRS Pownell, represented the Frankston branch of the A.W.N. League at Dandenong on Tuesday 20th inst. when delegates from the Australian Women’s National League and the National Federal branches in the South-Eastern Province met to select a candidate to stand in the National interests. Nominations had been received from Mr F. Hagelthorn, M.L.C. and Cr Francis, and both were present. Councillor Francis, however, declined to retire from the contest if he were not selected, and consequently the convention declared in favor of Mr Hagelthorn. *** Heard in the Train. That Lord Jellicoe will be passing through Frankston on the 4th June, on

his way to inspect the Naval Base. That if Frankston possessed a bowling green many additional visitors would spend their holidays at the premier seaside resort. That the pastime is highly popular with both old and young and it should not be a difficult matter to form a bowling club and arrange for a green to be laid down straight away. That a good bowling green is one of the best advertisements any town catering for visitors can possess. That the Seaford Progress Association is well satisfied with its work in securing a sub division of the North Riding. That the S.P.A. is one of the few live associations of its kind on the Peninsula. That Cr Oates was favorably impressed by his visit to the S.P.A. meeting on Saturday night last. That he was so interested in the proceedings that he missed his train and had to work from home. That it is not characteristic of Cr Oates to “miss the bus”. For a public man with many engagements he is a model of punctuality and reliability. *** G. DARCY, (Late A.I.F) BEGS to notify the public of Frankston and district that he has commenced business as a Fruiterer and Greengrocer in PLAYNE STREET, FRANKSTON, and is prepared to supply FRESH VEGETABLES AND FRUIT DAILY. Van Calls on Customers Twiceweekly. *** FROM the pages of the Mornington Standard, 31 May 1919

THE MEANING OF EXISTENCE... AND OTHER SHORT STORIES

How to Avoid Game of Thrones Spoilers and Not Lose Your Mind By Stuart McCullough THANK goodness that’s over. I am officially delighted to put the last six weeks behind me. Relieved, even. After spending a month and a half doing all I can to avoid learning anything about the new season of Game of Thrones, it finally feels safe to leave the house. I might even read a newspaper. Now that the fear of finding out can be laid to rest, life as normal can now resume. It’s not been easy. Deliberate deprivation is tough in an age when over-sharing is the new normal and spoilers hang in the atmosphere like smoke. Frankly, I kind of resent it. I’ve found the whole experience very confronting. Over the past six weeks it felt as if there are two kinds of people in this world – those who have Foxtel and those who know someone who has Foxtel and are likely to drop around in the near future to watch Game of Thrones. Event television should be a unifying experience but, instead, it neatly divides the population into the haves and have nots. I know – I could subscribe to pay TV but, frankly, that would be giving in. It feels like a point of principle to resist. I’m not sure which principle exactly, but one of them. I’ve had to take precautions. People who approach me to make idle conversation are greeted with a raised index finger and a gentle shake of the head; clearly indicating that if they’re thinking of talking about last night’s episode and what Jon, Dany, Arya, Sansa and the crew are up to, they’d best reconsider. I just don’t want to know. I

have slammed doors, hung up on telephone conversations and repeatedly plunged my fingers into my ears whilst chanting ‘la, la, la, la’, all in an effort to avoid learning second hand the various plot twists that await me in the final season. How did it come to this? Television is a human right. Or, 29 May 2019

if it isn’t, it probably should be. When I was a kid, one of the things that unified people was the ability to discuss whatever happened on television the night before without fear that you were ruining someone’s day. Entire lunchtimes were devoted to dissecting the previous evening’s episode of ‘The Fall Guy’ and

reciting large portions of ‘The Young Ones’. These days, interactions with fellow students and colleagues are plagued by fear. Specifically, the fear of finding out before you’re ready. Television was a communal experience. Sometimes it still is, but it’s become much more individualised. And programs are controlled in a way that’s intended to bend you to the will of a corporation. It’s confronting. The idea that content can be withheld from the general public to provoke surrender is not so much a savvy commercial decision as it is the act of an evil super villain whose likely next move is to block out the sun. Even Cersei Lannister would draw the line at such behaviour. It creates a bizarre situation whereby Game of Thrones can only be viewed on pay television. This, in turn, provides an incentive to people to either subscribe to said pay television provider or, alternatively, break the law by watching pirated content. Without fail, these outbursts of illegality result in lots of news items describing horrific rates of illegal downloading, as if it wasn’t inevitable. Personally, I find the whole thing pretty objectionable. Maybe that’s because I grew up in an era when top shelf TV shows were available to anyone who had a television. Programs like ‘Cop Shop’, ‘Young Talent Time’ and ‘It’s a Knock Out’ weren’t locked away but were gifted to a grateful public, all for the slight inconvenience of having to sit through fifteen minutes of ‘Copperart’ adverts per hour. It was a small price to pay. Not that pay TV people

care. It’s easy to imagine those responsible sitting about stroking a denuded cat while staring off into the middle distance and laughing maniacally. They won’t win. So far so good. By digging a hole in my back yard and living underground for the last six weeks, I have managed to avoid any major plot leaks. Soon I will be able to purchase Game of Thrones and binge watch the whole thing in glorious, lawful surround sound. I realise that some might argue that I should just sign up for pay television for a short period of time rather than deny myself the undoubted pleasure of watching when everyone else is watching, but that misses the point. Were I to sign up to pay television, there’s a very real risk that I’ll start squandering all my free time by watching back to back episodes of some useless reality television program involving vending machine repairers based in some distant, hostile location and never get anything useful done ever again. My point is this: We should all be able to live in a world where the words ‘Spoiler alert’ are meaningless. But, for now, my self-imposed exile can come to an end and I will integrate myself back into society just as soon as I’ve caught up on the latest on the quest for the Iron Throne. Don’t try calling me. Stuart McCullough will be absent next week as he watches ‘Game of Thrones’. ‘Outback Vending Machine Repair Bloke’ currently screens on Foxtel on a continuous 24 hour loop from now until eternity. stuart@stuartmccullough.com

Tigers snap unbeaten streak DIVISION ONE

By Brodie Cowburn THE undefeated streak of Pines has come to a shock conclusion this weekend, as last year’s second division premiers Dromana secured an upset win. Playing in front of their home crowd, the Tigers got things started by kicking five goals straight in the first term. The Pythons chipped the lead back in the second term, with the lead standing at 11 points at half time. Dromana were able to kick a couple of quick goals at the start of the second half to keep Pines out of reach, and held onto that lead for the remainder of the game. Dromana secured the hard fought win 14.4 (88) to 7.8 (50), proving they belong in the top division. Sam Fowler and Ethan Johnstone scored four and three goals respectively for the Tigers in their big win, while Billy Quigley also had an impressive game. The win put Dromana up to third place and firmly in finals contention. At the other end of the ladder, Mornington have secured their first win of the season over the Frankston Bombers at Alexandra Park. Mornington had the upper hand throughout the first half, going into the main break with a seven point lead. The Bombers kept in touch and cut the lead back to two points going into the last term, but the Bulldogs held on to get off the mark in 2019. Warwick Miller booted four goals for Mornington to help his side to a badly needed win. Alex Harnett put in a good effort for

the Bombers, kicking four goals of his own. Frankston YCW had more success as they took on Edithvale-Aspendale, claiming a thrilling win at home. The Stonecats threw away a first half lead and were up against it going into the final term. Up by four, Edithvale-Aspendale found themselves in the box seat for a win. Edit-Asp were held to just one goal in the last term, allowing YCW to snatch back the lead and claim a thrilling two point win. The final scoreboard read Frankston YCW 9.10 (64) to Edithvale-Aspendale 9.8 (62). Luke Paynter’s four goal haul proved the difference. Sorrento had far less trouble on Saturday as they took on Bonbeach away from home. It was the Leigh Poholke show at Bonbeach Recreation Reserve, as he kicked eight goals in his sides dominating win. Sorrento put themselves on top in the battle of the Sharks early, and were sitting comfortably at half time with a 49 point lead. Sorrento secured an easy win 8.1 (49) to 20.14 (134). With Pines losing their first match of the year, Sorrento’s victory puts them top of the ladder. The Redlegs also secured a win on the weekend, defeating Rosebud 10.13 (73) to 5.5 (35). Both sides went scoreless in the first term, and the contest was fairly close throughout. A five goals to zero last term helped Mt Eliza secure victory.

Blues shine in the wet: Hastings’ five goal first term set them up for a win over Somerville. Picture: Andrew Hurst

By Brodie Cowburn A NINE goal haul from star recruit Marc Holt has helped Karingal continue their hot streak in the MPNFL. Taking on Pearcedale away from home, the Bulls worked hard from the get go and led by nearly 50 points at half time. Pearcedale never got close after the Bulls got going, and a seven goals to one final term sealed their fate. Pearcedale were put out of their misery when the final siren sounded. The final score was Pearcedale 5.8 (38) to Karingal 18.15 (123). Holt has now kicked 42 goals from seven games this season, making him by far and away the standout forward in the league. Teammate Matthew Stanley also helped with four goals. Red Hill also continued their dominating start to the year, easily defeating Tyabb at home. The Yabbies were held scoreless in the first quarter, and never managed to fight their way back into it against the best defensive team in the competition. Another excellent team performance helped Red Hill secure victory 15.16 (106) to 5.3 (33). Jake Mold and Zach Vines kicked three goals each for the winning side. Brendan Fevola took the field again for Hastings as his side took on Somerville. A five goals to zero first term set Hastings up for an easy win. Fevola kicked two majors, in his side’s victory.

The final scoreboard read Hastings 12.20 (92) to Somerville 6.11 (47). Chelsea backed up their brilliant victory over Pearcedale last week with another impressive performance, this time against Devon Meadows. Jed Brain continued his good form for the Seagulls, scoring four goals. He now has 10 goals in his last three games. Devon Meadows struggled to hit the scoreboard and were made to pay. Chelsea took the four points with a 7.7 (49) to 14.14 (98) win. Rye had a tough day against Seaford at RJ Rowley Reserve, succumbing to defeat in front of their home crowd. The contest was tight all throughout the day, with both sides wrestling control of the game all afternoon. Rye led by five points at the first break, but trailed by eight by threequarter time. The Demons’ chances of a win were destroyed by a seven goals to two last quarter. Seaford were unstoppable in the last term, and eventually ran out winners 9.8 (62) to 15.11 (101). Aaron Walton played another good match for the Tigers, with his second five goal haul in three weeks. Nick Braund and Ben Howlett were also among the best for the winners. Crib Point endured another tough loss as they took on Langwarrin at home. Langwarrin were able to get the win without too much trouble, eventually claiming the four points 6.2 (38) to 13.23 (101).

Get set for super soccer weekend SOCCER

By Craig MacKenzie LOCAL derbies take centre stage this week as Frankston Pines, Skye United, Baxter and Seaford United prepare for battle. The first of two huge derby showdowns takes place on Friday night under the Monterey Reserve lights when Frankston Pines hosts neighbouring Skye United. These State 3 opponents still harbour hopes of mounting a promotion push especially fourthplaced Skye which goes into this clash on the back of a five-match winning streak. Skye prides itself on its fitness and organisation and once it wins possession it can go forward quickly with pace on both flanks. The set piece skills of Irish midfielder Mark O’Connor also pose a threat to Pines but the youngsters in the home side are quickly coming to terms with the demands of senior competition. Cedric Benza, Christian Malgioglio, Kevin Brown, Connor McAndrews, Nick Simmons, Travis Ernsdoerfer and Alex Bevacqua all have come from the NPL under-20 environment and have been fast-tracked into senior competition. On Friday they face their biggest test so far against an in-form opponent who has recently claimed the scalps of title favourite Collingwood City and promotion hopeful South Yarra. Baxter hosts State 4 rival Seaford United on Saturday and Seaford player-coach Matty Morris-Thomas is available after serving a one-match suspension. Seaford has the worst disciplinary record on the peninsula with five send-offs in eight matches but Morris-Thomas is adamant that the club doesn’t have a problem in this area. “We have been unlucky with a few decisions going against us, but we will get better as the team gets used to the new culture Andy (Lancaster) and I are trying to implement,” he said. No doubt that view will be tested in the whitehot cauldron of a derby battle. Baxter’s Dan Disseldorp and Charlie Jones are unlikely to recover from hamstring injuries but the club is hopeful that striker Nathan Yole (back), midfielder Stuart McKenzie (knee) and defender Matt McDermott (knee) will play. In NPL2 news Langwarrin is now third after Saturday’s 2-1 away win over Geelong. The sides were locked at 0-0 at the interval but Johnny Kuol put Langy in front in the 67th minute only for Geelong captain Matt Townley to level three minutes later. A clinical Jordan Templin finish restored the visitors’ lead in the 74th minute and when Geelong was reduced to 10 men after Paul Nicolescu was red carded in the 78th minute Langy was able to hold on for an important away victory. Langy’s FFA Cup run ended at Lakeside Stadium last Wednesday night when it went down 2-1 to NPL heavyweight South Melbourne. Langy’s second-string keeper Sermin Sadikovski walked out last week and signed with North Sunshine Eagles taking Langy head coach Scott Miller and assistant Jamie Skelly by surprise. It’s understood that the Lawton Park outfit is

looking at a number of signing options locally and overseas including a replacement keeper and the club may make some announcements shortly. In other Langy news two 16-year-olds from the club’s underage NPL sides are trialling with Melbourne Victory this week. Striker Keegan Myatt and defender Brodie Jones have been invited to trial for places in the A-League giant’s youth program. In NPLW news Southern United lost 5-0 away to Bayside United on Saturday with under-19s coach Liam Drury doubling up due to the absence of senior coach Melissa Maizels who was attending the International Football Coaching Conference Australia on the Gold Coast. The under-19s lost 2-1 with Kayla Aydin scoring for Southern, a Rhys McKenna goal gave the under-16s a 1-0 win while the under-14s lost 2-0. In State 1 news Mornington surrendered a twogoal lead to go down 3-2 at home to St Kilda Celts on Saturday. A superb free-kick from Sam Scott in the 11th minute made it 1-0 and Sammy Orritt capitalised on a poor goalkick from St Kilda keeper Arron Schille eight minutes later to make it 2-0. A stunning long-range strike from St Kilda midfielder Darragh Ryan in the 41st minute reduced the deficit and the sides were back on even terms in the 76th minute when a static Mornington defence allowed tall central defender Calum Fleming to ghost in at the back post and sidefoot home a Trent Whitely cross from the right. The killer blow was struck in the second minute of injury time when Mornington keeper Taylor Davidson was beaten in the race to contact a Whitely cross to the near post and Jack Butts headed in.

FRANKSTON FOOTBALL CLUB

In State 2 news Peninsula Strikers won 4-1 away to Moorooolbark last weekend. Strikers’ gaffer Danny Verdun is overseas on business and assistant Neil Standish was in charge. Strikers went behind in the 17th minute when Sean Perrin scored against the run of play but Josh Calle equalised with the last kick of the first half when his shot was parried by Moorooolbark keeper Mark Namowicz and the rebound struck Calle and went in. In the 68th minute Strikers’ midfielder Danny Brooks put second-half substitute Matt Harrington through and he finished well to make it 2-1. Abraham Lokiru gave Strikers a two-goal cushion when he followed up a shot in the 80th minute and Harrington was on the end of a superb ball from another substitute, Lachie Mitchell, for a tap-in in the 84th minute. In State 3 news Paulo Pinheiro stepped in as head coach of Frankston Pines in the absence of Kevin “Squizzy” Taylor who was at the Championship play-off at Wembley on Monday (yesterday) but will be back in Melbourne in time for Friday’s derby battle with Skye United. Two second-half goals from CJ Hodgson gave Pines its first away win of the season when it defeated Elwood City 2-0 last Saturday. The first came in the 60th minute when he looked offside as he broke clear onto a through ball, lobbed it over advancing Elwood keeper Ben Paris before slotting the ball into an unguarded goal. Hodgson’s second came in the 80th minute when he lobbed Paris to secure all three points for Pines.

Skye defeated Diamond Valley United 3-0 at home last weekend. A lacklustre first half saw Skye take the lead with a long range effort from striker Mitch Blake. The home side had to wait until the 83rd minute to put this one to bed after Jason Nowakowski’s square ball found substitute Daniel Attard who finished from close range. The points were sealed in the 88th minute when substitute Johnny Andrinopolous sent over a cross that picked out Mikey Turner who finished well. In State 4 news Harry McCartney reports that Seaford and Springvale City drew 1-1 last weekend in a fixture rearranged last week for North Seaford Reserve. Springvale went in front after 10 minutes when an Arnel Zahirovic cross from the right was struck home by Robbie Mortaruolo from close range. In the 65th minute a cross from Adam Martin was deflected off Mitch Lander and despite a reflex save from Springvale keeper Yehya Dimassi, Kevin Derry got the final touch to make it 1-1. Dimassi was outstanding and his man-of-thematch display earned the visitors a point. In State 5 news Somerville Eagles had to settle for a share of the points at home after they were surprisingly held to a 1-1 draw by lowly Hampton Park United last weekend. Mark Pagliarulo scored for Somerville. An undermanned Aspendale Stingrays side went down 3-1 away to Casey Panthers last Saturday. Aspendale midfielders Kieran Hughes and Sam Timuska-Carr and winger Kenan Nuhanovic were unavailable due to injury while striker Guil Ribeiro has returned to Berwick City. Aspendale captain Peter Dimopoulos and Casey’s Dominic Navarra were both sent off in the 30th minute and right on half-time Leigh Gangemi gave the home side the lead. Substitute Jordy Athanassiou equalised in the 75th minute but goals in the 76th and 79th minutes from Casey striker Makiadi Joao settled the issue. Rosebud was on the end of an 8-0 thumping from runaway league leader Old Mentonians last weekend. This week’s games: FRIDAY, 8.30pm: Frankston Pines v Skye Utd (Monterey Reserve). SATURDAY, 3pm: Langwarrin v Whittlesea Ranges (Lawton Park), Southern Utd v Alamein (Monterey Reserve; under-12s 9am, under-14s 10.10am, under-16s 11.30am, under-19s 1pm), Mornington v Nunawading City (Dallas Brooks Park), Baxter v Seaford Utd (Baxter Park), Somerville Eagles v Bunyip District (Tyabb Central Reserve), Aspendale Stingrays v Endeavour Hills Fire (Jack Grut Reserve), Hampton Park Utd v Rosebud (KM Reedy Reserve).

Prince pinches Melbourne Cup entry By Ben Triandafillou MORNINGTON-trained racehorse Steel Prince has gained guaranteed entry into this year’s $7.3 million Melbourne Cup. The Anthony Freedman-trained gelding made the most of the newly reinvigorated Andrew Ramsden Stakes (2800m) on Saturday 25 May at Flemington with an incredibly narrow victory over Surprise Baby. The tough and tenacious win provides the five-year-old stayer with an automatic start in the race that stops the nation. Trainer Anthony Freedman said the former Irish galloper just has a great will to win. “He’s just incredibly tough and he’s incredibly genuine,” Freedman said. “I don’t think I’ve had a tougher or more genuine horse than him.” “He’ll never win a race by much no matter where you ran him, but he doesn’t like getting beaten. He’s got a great record and he’s earned his chance.” Freedman said Steel Prince has shown great improvement, particularly in the mounting yard, and once again credited their training base at Pinecliff, Mt Eliza. Steel Prince will likely have just a few runs in the build up to November’s Melbourne Cup. “We’ve learned a lot about him this prep,” Freedman said. “He’ll run well in a Melbourne Cup and I think he can get a cheque. “He’s enjoying the farm at Pinecliff as he can get a little hot and the boys at home said that is the best he’s presented for the prep so maybe he’s maturing.” Freedman last had runners in the Melbourne Cup in 2016 with Exospheric (eighth) and Our Ivanhowe (17th).
