It’s Dorothy’s way with the foreshore THE $1.5 million 270 metre long Dorothy Houghton Walk was officially opened earlier this month. The path, left, was paid for by Mornington Peninsula Shire and provides access between Camerons Bight Beach and Sullivan Bay. In 1980, as Flinders shire president, Dorothy Houghton was instrumental in the state government buying land along the Sorrento foreshore, including Sullivan Bay, the Eastern and Western Sisters and part of Camerons Bight. “Mrs Houghton worked hard to protect public land along the Sorrento foreshore,” Mornington Peninsula Shire mayor Cr Bryan Payne said. “This [path] is a welcoming tribute to her legacy and will be recognised by the community for generations to come.” Cr Hugh Fraser said the Houghton family had been associated with the Nepean Peninsula since the early 1940s. “Mrs Houghton was actively involved in many committees and clubs throughout her lifetime, particularly as a Flinders Shire councillor and its first woman president and the Red Cross and, in recent years, as patron of the 1803 Collins (First European Settlement in Victoria) Action Group.” Cr Fraser said the Dorothy Houghton Walk was a “marvellous tribute to her ceaseless work for the community”.

Brake on Hastings electric train Keith Platt keith@mpnews.com.au MORNINGTON Peninsula Shire has watered down its demands to electrify the railway line between Frankston and Hastings. An “advocacy paper” released by the shire earlier this month stated that electrifying the railway to Baxter offered “minimal benefits” to peninsula residents and meant extending the town’s urban area into the green wedge. But councillors last week changed

course, accepting Baxter as “phase one” of the railway line’s electrification and Hastings as “phase two”. In a late addition to the 22 May council meeting agenda, "team leader - peninsula wide" Rosa Zouzoulas submitted a report that identified two pieces of shire-owned vacant land that could be used for car parking if Baxter is made the end of the electrified line. The “advocacy paper” adopted a week earlier by the shire’s planning service committee had made it clear Baxter was unsuitable to be a train ter-

minus (“Shire off line in train talks” The News 22/5/18). The change has also led to an extraordinary accusation from Cr David Gill that the mayor, Cr Bryan Payne, ignored changes to a council decision, issuing a news release saying the shire “welcomes” rather than “acknowledges” a federal government commitment to at least part finance the line’s electrification. He said the mayor should make a public apology to the council. “I regard the way the last minute of-

the infrastructure can be accommodated". The latest news release from the shire makes no mention of political pressure or that its revised stance aligns itself more closely with the wishes of state and federal Liberal MPs. On Friday afternoon Cr Payne said the news release had been prepared before the council meeting and the changes that had been made to the wording of the officer’s recommendation. Continued Page 12

ficer report [was] brought before the council to be unusual, political in nature and the media release to be misleading,” Cr Gill told other councillors in an email on Friday morning. Cr Hugh Fraser said the shire’s negotiating position to make Hastings the end of the electrified line “has just been thrown away … to avoid any inconsistency between the federal Liberal government pumping money into a marginal seat supporting Baxter electrification … and our council rationally and clearly supporting Hastings where

VCAT nod for fourth Rye boat ramp Stephen Taylor steve@mpnews.com.au THE Victorian Civil and Administrative Tribunal has endorsed Mornington Peninsula Shire’s plans for a $1.2 million fourth boat ramp and jetty and renew three existing boat ramps at Rye. The VCAT approval gives the go-ahead to the contentious Rye Recreational Boating Precinct Plan, adopted in principle by the shire Council in November 2013, which recommended an upgrade to the Rye boat ramp precinct as a “short-term priority”. Finance is coming from a Department of Environment, Land, Water & Planning grant of $588,000 with the shire adding $648,000 from its 2016-17 budget. It is believed a condition of the DEWLP grant was that the fourth boat ramp be built – a condition opposed by the Rye Community Group Alliance. The group’s leader, Mechelle Cheers, said its members were angry the shire had backed the fourth ramp when it would be “rarely” needed (“Safety first ‘crucial’ at Rye boat ramp” The News 14/8/17). Last week she said the VCAT decision was based on the fact that the area already had boat launching ramps “and so a per-

mit to construct an additional ramp should be granted. No account was taken of its possible impact on social amenities or the Rye community as a whole”. “No account was taken of the environment or the type of water craft being used there, and no account was taken of its impact on beach users.” Cr Hugh Fraser said the approval was “great news for the boating and fishing industry on the peninsula”. “At peak periods the Rye boat ramp is fully occupied and serves much more than the local community – increased investment to this facility is much needed,” he said. “An extra ramp and renewal of the existing ramps will reduce queue times in summer and, ultimately, make the area safer for users. It will be easier, quicker and safer to get all watercraft in and out of the water.” The $900,000 Rye foreshore landscape works will include a wheelchair-accessible boardwalk with beach access which will protect sand dunes and connect to the Bay Trail. The works will include paved plazas, rain gardens to reduce stormwater runoff, removal of a storm water outfall to the east of the pier and decorative lighting, the shire said.

Artist captures battle’s drama MT MARTHA artist Eric Shepherd has been commissioned to do a painting of a WWI battlefield for an “exhibition of premium art by the best Victorian artists”. His oil on canvas work Battle of the Somme will feature in the Holt Armistice 100 year art exhibition at Narre Warren Mechanics Institute Hall in October. The exhibition will be attended by ambassadors or representatives of the embassies of the countries involved in the conflict. Afterwards the artists’ works will travel around the major cities in Australia. Mr Shepherd, 83, said he put a lot of effort into researching details behind his picture to ensure it was accurate. He is aware of another artist’s work which

featured a rifle that, in reality, was not used in a particular battle and, in fact, had not been developed until years after. “About 30 artists will be represented at the exhibition which will display newspapers of the day telling the story of the battle, photographs showing the signing of the Armistice and letters from families to their loved ones,” he said. Afterwards, a book of the exhibition will feature prints of the paintings and a biography of each artist. “It’s all very exciting,” Mr Shepherd said. “It’s going to be a wiz-bang event.” Stephen Taylor

Puppy’s eye on U3A members A TALK to Mornington U3A members by Vision Australia seeing eye dog volunteer of 20 years, Kate Harry, opened their eyes to the marvels of the role played by dogs. Ms Harry discussed how the well-trained dogs had transformed the lives of countless people with vision-impairment by enhancing their independence and mobility. She outlined the history of the guide dogs and chatted about her personal experience in caring for 21 puppies over the same number of years. The illustrated talk came about through Mornington U3A ‘That was Then’ history coordinator Gus van der Heyde with the help of U3A member Ann Thornton, a volunteer in the Seeing Eye Dog training program. One of the outcomes was enhancing the puppies’ social training in a room with many people present. “In the early days of being trained they are not always as obedient as one might wish,” Mr van der Heyde quipped. U3A members asked how the training of the dogs was progressing and how potential volunteer care-givers were vetted and how the dogs were chosen. Ms Harry outlined the origins of the International Guide Dog Movement and discussed the early establishment of “schools” to train guide dogs so urgently needed by soldiers returning from WWI. The movement was again needed by soldiers returning from WWII, as well as later wars in Korea, Vietnam, Iraq and Pakistan. The concept of training dogs to help the blind spread quickly across Europe to the United States and, in the 1950s, to Western Australia and then rapidly east. Two associations train dogs for the vision impaired: Guide Dogs Victoria and the Seeing Eye Dogs. Stephen Taylor

COUNCILLORS and mayors who seriously misbehave could be suspended for up to a year under new provisions in an amended Local Government Act introduced by the state government. Victorian Local Government Minister Marlene Kairouz introduced a bill into Parliament last Wednesday (23 May) to replace the Local Government Act 1989 in a move the Labor state government says “will modernise” councils across the state. “Clearly defining” sexual harassment has been included in a revised councillors’ code of conduct included in the new Local Government Act. The inclusion of the clause follows a high-profile investigation of former Melbourne lord mayor Robert Doyle amid complaints from female councillors about his conduct.

“We are bringing this Act into the 21st century – helping make councils more accountable and focused on the needs of their communities,” Ms Kairouz said. “Mayors and councillors who behave badly will be gone for a year – the days of them acting with impunity are over.” The Local Government Minister will also have “the power to suspend individual councillors who pose a significant threat to the governance of a council for up to a year”. Councils will be required under the new Act to develop four-year budgets and the mayor of the day will provide an annual update on the budget plan to ratepayers each year. “We want councils focused on the long-term and these changes will help them do exactly that,” Ms Kairouz said. The updated Local Government Act for Victorian councils comes after three years of community consultation.

MP urges ‘feedback’ for gas terminal FLINDERS MP Greg Hunt is urging “the community” to participate in the “feedback process” established by power supplier AGL which wants to moor a floating gas terminal at Crib Point. Work has started on preparing the existing jetty at Crib Point for the more than 300 metre long floating storage regasification unit (FSRU) although no government approvals have yet been given. The Port of Hastings Development Authority says it is undertaking “remediation works” on the jetty which are expected to be completed in January 2019. “[Sylvia] Simons was informed that Greg understands AGL are still completing their feasibility study to identify the risks associated with the project and that Greg encourages the community to engage in AGL’s feedback process via Jay Gleeson of AGL,” his local media advisor Mathew Langdon told The News after it reported that Ms Simons was still awaiting a reply (“Jetty gets ready for gas” 15/5/18). The response from Mr Hunt’s office was made after the deadline for that edition of The News. Ms Simons, of Crib Point, said she regarded Mr Hunt’s reply as containing “the standard responses and advised AGL still has some requirements to provide and no approvals have been granted at this stage either by government or council”. In her original email to Mr Hunt Ms Simons said she was “extremely concerned” and “appalled at the possibility of the destruction of our area”. “We are a [internationally recognised] Ramsar area and supposedly environmentally protected. Looking at the information that has been gathered [about AGL’s plans] it would seem this is not so,” Ms Simons stated.

“Apart from our wildlife, flora and fauna there would appear to be an extreme risk to the community from possible malfunction or a freak of nature that could cause an explosion, decimating the area, in the worst case scenario. “Notwithstanding this we are also a bushfire prone area. Our clean air could also be affected along with our quiet neighbourhood.” Ms Simons is still awaiting replies from several state Labor MPs about the gas terminal. Keith Platt

Retirement homes burgled

A 22-YEAR-OLD Frankston man who allegedly stole jewellery, credit cards and personal property from retirement villages was arrested by police last Friday (18 May). The man was charged with five aggravated burglaries, one burglary and handling stolen goods. He was arrested at a Frankston address in possession of a stolen car with stolen registration plates and was also charged with the theft of a motor vehicle. The alleged burglar ransacked rooms at retirement villages including The Village Baxter and Long Island Retirement Village between 7 April and 9 May.

‘Old money’ repairs park road A SECTION of Defence Road in Point Nepean National Park will be closed for the next nine weeks. Parks Victoria says the roadworks are part of the state government’s $3.7 million “commitment towards activating the Point Nepean master plan”. However, the announcement by Parks Victoria has not gone unnoticed by Mornington Peninsula Shire councillor Hugh Fraser who says the money being used to pay for the road is not “new money”. “The $3.7 million announced by the minister at the quarantine station Point Nepean on 21 January this year with a great fanfare as if it were new state government money, is in fact what is left over unspent from the federal government grant provided to the state when the Commonwealth handed over Point Nepean as a national park to the state,” Cr Fraser said. Parks Victoria says the roadworks will improve the safety and amenity of Defence Road. The 3.6 kilometres of road will be rebuilt

A news release from Parks Victoria says drainage works “to reduce erosion of the fragile landscape” will also be undertaken. While the works are underway there will be no shuttle bus; no vehicle access to the Gunners Cottage Car Park; no cyclists or pedestrians allowed on Defence Road beyond Danson Drive; and no access to Fort Nepean, Fort Pearce, the Harold Holt Memorial, Cheviot Hill, or the range area. Access to the Point Nepean Cemetery, Walter Pisterman Walking Track and the western section of Coles Track from Observatory Point to Cheviot Hill will also be closed.

Opponents ready for roadside visit Stephen Taylor steve@mpnews.com.au MEMBERS of the Australian Wildlife Protection Council are today (Tuesday 29 May) planning to visit the site of proposed vegetation clearing by VicRoads on the Mornington Peninsula Freeway. The inspection follows a meeting between the groups over treatment of animals displaced by the contentious median-strip clearing which had conservationists and animal carers up in arms (“Plea to end ‘cruel’ freeway clearing” The News 14/5/18). VicRoads and the wildlife protection council are at odds over the methods used to remove the vegetation and the capabilities of the tree removalists and animal habitat managers contracted for the work, which is expected to start this week. Even the need for the wholesale clearing of the vegetation is in dispute, with the wildlife protection council arguing that the installation of wirerope barriers, which prompted the clearing, had been discontinued in several European countries. Australian Wildlife Protection Council secretary Eve Kelly refuted a comment by VicRoads that “the AWPC have confidence in the fauna detection and handling process outlined by [the contractors]”. Ms Kelly said: “It has been our experience that it has taken much effort to ensure actions are completed and followed through for this project. It would, therefore, be presumptuous for anyone at VicRoads to say the AWPC have confidence in the vegetation removal along the freeway. “We have had some concerning feedback about the way in which these contractors conduct their work on other projects.” After meeting the contractors earlier this month

Ms Kelly said she feared for the safety of displaced animals: “This habitat is abundant with ringtails and, while the forestry machine is not being used, heavy machinery still is, such as a large excavator with claw and bucket, Bobcat, chain saws, elevated work platform for large trees, wood chipper and temporary fencing. This machinery will create [lots of noise] and disturb wildlife.” VicRoads admitted in its action plan that stage one of the project “resulted in the disturbance of animals at a rate higher than expected and the project was suspended”. Learning from errors made in the first stage, VicRoads said “fauna salvage and release protocols had been developed to provide assistance and guidance to VicRoads staff and contractors during the removal of vegetation along the freeway”. “The measures outlined in the action plan have been developed to, where possible, avoid harm to fauna residing within the vegetation to be removed during clearing works and include recommendations identified during stage one of vegetation removal. “This action plan also aims to reduce risk to motorists during vegetation removal. [It] has been prepared with consultation and input from local stakeholders who will be impacted by the removal of vegetation such as local wildlife carers, vets and wildlife protection groups.” Ms Kelly said VicRoads “still have a long way to go in proving themselves in wildlife protection”. The group said the VicRoads Biodiversity Strategy and Tree strategy which it said “should be enough to stop [it] making the criminal mistake of mulching wildlife alive and expecting dedicated volunteers to clean up the mess they have created”.

Expo helps students look to the future MORE than 1300 secondary students at a careers expo last week were able to find out about what jobs they may want to pursue after their formal education ends. The students from Frankston and the Mornington Peninsula were at the annual careers expo on Tuesday 22 May at Hastings Community Hub organised by the Frankston Mornington Peninsula Local Learning and Employment. More than 40 industry, government and education providers were on hand to explain possible career and education “pathways”. Students were able to talk with universities, apprenticeship, vocational training and education providers as well as trying bricklaying, building, and cake decorating. “The FMP Career Expo is a fantastic event which gives our young people an opportunity to explore career and pathway options all in the one place,” executive officer of the Frankston Mornington Peninsula LLEN Carol Smith said.

A FREE range egg farm being developed in Somerville is more than a commercial proposition: it’s a healing space for a family and friends to come together and grieve the death of a loved one. Lil’s Yolky Dokey Farm came about after Lily Grace Lanarus, 20, died in a four-wheel-drive accident in northern Victoria earlier this year. On May 13 – Mother’s Day – she would have been celebrating her 21st birthday with mother Jacqui Lanarus and her partner Gab Banay and friends. In the long, grief-stricken days after her death, the Frankston family developed a vision that would keep their daughter’s memory alive and constant. They knew that Lily had a dream to own her own bush block, raise pasture-fed hens, and sell their free-range eggs while operating a beauty salon on her farm. Within a few weeks of Lily’s death, the family found a 20-hectare property for lease and set about establishing the farm: Lil’s dream was well on the way to fruition. “Our Lily Grace was a sensitive, passionate and funny human being who was just starting to blossom and find herself,” friend Dani Pritchard, of Mt Martha, said. “She loved spray tanning, makeup, eyelash extensions and all things beauty, but equally she enjoyed her PJs, fluffy dressing gown, going bush and living in the outdoors.” Lil’s Yolky Dokey Farm has evolved into much more than just a

business idea, Ms Pritchard said. “It’s a cathartic process that keeps everyone moving forwards as they grieve. It’s an outlet for Lily’s family and wide circle of friends to create something where they can feel close to her. It has become a healing space for us all to pour our love for Lily into something meaningful.” The six paddocks will eventually house 1450 hens in six chicken caravans. Automated doors will allow

them to roam free during the day while, at night, they will sleep on roosting perches. Their droppings will fall to the ground to become fertiliser. Numbers will stay at about 100 hens a hectare. The family believes low stocking density is the key to sustainable farming and providing a happy and healthy home for the brood. “The girls will be able to enjoy a dust bath, flap their wings in flight, lay in the sun and scratch and forage

STOP FREEWAY NOISE Martin Dixon MP State Member for Nepean Invites you to a public

Freeway Noise Forum The Labor Party have been in government 15 of the last 19 years and have steadfastly refused to acknowledge the stress freeway noise has caused residents. With the election coming at the end of the year, it is time for the community to rally together and make our voices heard.

Happier times: Jacqui and Lily Lanarus before the accident, above, and a typical FRiday night at the egg farm started in memory of Lilly. Pictures: Supplied

for bugs and grubs to their hearts’ content, living in the best conditions in open pasture,” Ms Lanarus said. A Pozible crowd funding campaign (which ends in 16 days) to raise $10,000 will ease the financial pressures of establishing Lil’s dream. It will go towards building amenities, outdoor kitchen, composting toilet and running water for those who come to help and heal. “Once we hit our first target of $10,000 we would like to continue to raise another $15,000 for farm equipment, including a tractor, ride-

on lawn mower and four-wheel-drive for the farm,” Ms Lanarus said. “With our third target of $25,000 we can help Lil’s Yolky Dokey Egg Farm grow.” One of Lil’s friends summed it up: “I feel close to Lily when I am at the farm. All the hard work and effort that Lil’s tight friendship group has contributed is a reflection of how much she means to us all.” To follow and find out more about the familyrun business visit facebook.com/Lils-YolkyDokey-Eggs.

Boundary changes ‘best for basketball’ Neil Walker neil@mpnews.com.au A SPORTING group criticised by federal Dunkley Liberal MP Chris Crewther in Parliament earlier this year wants electorate boundaries changed in a move that would put the seat within reach of a Labor Party win at the next federal election. The Frankston & District Basketball Association (FDBA) wrote to the Australian Electoral Commission (AEC) on 14 May to support a proposed Dunkley electorate boundaries redistribution that would see Dunk-

ley lose Mornington and the north of Baxter in the south to the Flinders electorate but gain Sandhurst in the north from the Isaacs electorate. The FDBA’s stadium is located at council-owned land at Bardia Avenue in Seaford. Association president Gary Emery’s letter to the AEC said: “Frankston basketball’s catchment zone is linked to the municipal boundaries of Frankston City as well as capturing aspects of Mount Eliza. “Frankston basketball encourages that the redistribution is endorsed for the betterment of the sport of basketball in our region.”

Whatever you want to do in later life, start thinking about it now.

The submission to the AEC comes after Mr Crewther made several allegations under parliamentary privilege in Canberra about possible misconduct at the Frankston & District Basketball Association. The FDBA denies the allegations. Basketball Victoria is investigating the allegations. Mr Crewther’s comments were made in Parliament the week after hosting last-ditch talks between the FDBA and Frankston Council in a failed bid to try to resurrect a $12.7 million upgrade of the stadium. Council and the association could not agree on lease terms for an up-

Australians are living longer. And that means there’s a lot more life to enjoy. Whatever you’re looking forward to, whether it’s to keep working, change jobs, start a new business, or just keep healthy, active and connected – the government has programs to assist you. There are also 20,000 extra high level home care packages to help you stay at home and independent for longer. There are lots of ways to live the life you want.

personal views.” Neighbouring Mornington Peninsula Shire mayor Cr Bryan Payne made a 4 May submission opposing the AEC proposed changes (“Electorate change objections mount”, The News 21/5/18). “In particular, we are concerned about the separation of Mount Eliza from the neighbouring township of Mornington,” Cr Payne stated in a letter to the AEC. “Mount Eliza benefits from being part of the same federal electorate as the township of Mornington, which is a major activity centre for Mount Eliza residents”.

graded stadium. Frankston mayor Cr Colin Hampton has also made a recent submission to the AEC supporting Dunkley boundary changes. “As councillor representing the North East Ward of Frankston — encompassing Carrum Downs, Sandhurst, Skye and Langwarrin — I look forward to the communities I represent finally being brought within the same federal electorate.” Cr Hampton, a Labor Party member, stated in his correspondence that “I make this submission in my capacity as a long-term councillor and resident, not as mayor. It reflects my

Continued from Page 1 “I don’t do these media things – it was done before the council changed the officer’s recommendation,” Cr Payne said. “It was not intentional and, as usual, [Cr Gill] has shot off in the wrong direction. The only person introducing politics into this is him. There’s nothing political about it.” Cr Payne said he was a member of the Liberal Party and repeated that Cr Gill “is the only one making a political issue out of it”. “I take offence for him to say it’s a political issue. The media release was done by our communications department.” The report to council on 22 May by Ms Zouzoulas came in the wake of a meeting in Frankston called by Dunkley Liberal MP Chris Crewther attended by the federal Minister for Urban Infrastructure and Cities, Paul Fletcher, Committee for Greater Frankston (C4GF) chief executive Ginevra Hosking, Frankston’s mayor Cr Colin Hampton and CEO Dennis Hovenden, Cr Payne, Peninsula Health CEO Felicity Topp, Liberal MP for Hastings Neale Burgess and Liberal candidate for Carrum Donna Bauer. Neither the state Labor MP for Carrum, Sonya Kilkenny or Labor MP for Frankston, Paul Edbrooke, were at the meeting. The electrification of the railway line has become a sensitive political issue as the whole town of Baxter will come within the federal seat of Flinders – held by Liberal Greg Hunt if boundary changes proposed by the Australian Electoral Commission are adopted. Half of Baxter, including the railway station, is now within the seat of Dunkley, held for the Liberals by Mr Crewther. Pollsters say the boundary changes are likely to see Labor win the seat. The C4GF’s $450 million push is to electrify the Baxter line to Langwarrin, where it wants a new station and car parking for 1000 vehicles as well as building a station to service Frankston Hospital and Monash University. The shire’s initial “advocacy paper” made it clear that the shire was upset at being left out of discussions to electrify the railway line to a town within its municipal boundary. Mr Crewther’s meeting appears to recognise the shire – which includes Baxter within its municipal boundary - as a “stakeholder”. The easing of the shire’s demand for an electrified railway to Hastings makes it easier for the state Labor and federal Coalition governments to justify spending $3 million on a business case to electrify the line just to Baxter. However, the shire remains opposed to Baxter being used for the stabling and maintenance of trains. Moving these services out to Baxter will free up land at Frankston as demand on parking there would be reduced if peninsula commuters caught the train at Baxter.


Samaritans rally to pensioner’s plight Stephen Taylor steve@mpnews.com.au

Toast to a 103-year milestone A GIRL has to look her best for her birthday – even more so when she is turning 103. So, on Thursday 17 May, Grace Mitchell, of Safety Beach, did what she always does and visited her favourite hairdresser and to catch up with other regulars. Three days later she was celebrating the big day with family and friends

and a cake, of course, at the Peninsula Club, Dromana. Born in South Melbourne in 1915, Ms Mitchell moved to Safety Beach to live with daughter Beverly Cameron 11 years ago. Son Norman lives next door. “She loves going out, meeting people, reading and listening to music,” Ms Cameron said.

Tina Romeril, from Scallywags Hair Design, McCrae, regularly hosts get-togethers for her favourite customers, including a special lunch for Ms Mitchell when she turned 100. Last week she hosted pre-birthday champers to wish the birthday girl all the best for the big day. “She enjoyed it and that’s what it’s all about.”

GOOD Samaritans have rallied to help a pensioner who feared becoming homeless because of rising rents and limited housing stock. First, a reader offered him a suitable place to live rent-free and now the wheel has turned even further for Larry (surname withheld), who has been given a job by a former colleague doing what he does best: fixing sewing machines. Larry, who told his story to The News in February (“Pensioner feels the brunt in house hunt” 5/2/18), says his life has now turned around. “I am so grateful to all,” he said last week from the cottage on the 12-hectare property he helps look after in lieu of rent. “l was a victim of the 1989-90 depression during which I lost my investments, house and marriage. “At the age of 70 and after being retired for four years I looked for a long term permanent rental. With the previous four properties being sold from underneath me and fearing the same thing would happen again, I sought something more long term. “With the help of The News I was put in contact with some very kind people who offered me a small selfcontained two bedroom apartment at the rear of the property in exchange for some minor farm work.” In the late 1980s, one of Larry’s

duties as Victorian/Tasmanian state manager of Singer Sewing Machine Company was to hire staff. This led to a young Mark Foster being put on as an apprentice sewing machine mechanic. “When Singer and I parted ways, Mark stayed on to complete his apprenticeship and he would call on my company until its demise. We had not seen each other since 1989-90,” Larry said. “Recently, and by sheer coincidence, we met up again. Mark has grown into a very humble and mature man with his own business [Sewfix Sewing Machine Repairs] in Seaford.” The two men rekindled their friendship and struck up an arrangement: Larry – the former boss – now works part-time for Mark the former apprentice. “He allows me to not only come and go when I want but also tinker with old sewing machines,” Larry said. “This not only keeps my mind and body active but it also makes me feel useful once again. “Sometimes I go with him for a pick-up or delivery of machines. It is like swings and roundabouts: he now tells me to sweep floors and clean the toilets.” Hearing of Larry’s plight in February, the Council to Homeless Persons said the state government should finance social housing projects through stamp duty revenues.

ON THE COVER

//////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////

CAPTIVATING CONTEMPORARY STYLE AND LUXURIOUS SPACE ARCHITECT designed with a distinct difference, this remarkably spacious family home has a surprise to reveal at almost every turn. From the moment you enter the wide and welcoming central hallway you are captivated by the overwhelming sense of space. To the left is one of four bedrooms, and across the hall is a superb formal lounge; virtually encased in a sea of green with large picture windows looking out to a unique courtyard that dissects this front portion of the home. Continuing past a third bedroom, a second hall takes you to the main bathroom with separate shower and bath and another bedroom. The glorious reveal of the vast open-plan family zone is a sight to cherish with polished floors gleaming in the natural light from the wall of picture windows, and all beautifully-presented underneath a high ceiling dotted with down lights. Here at the heart of the home is a sensational gourmet kitchen complete with granite-topped island bench incorporating a dishwasher and plenty of storage space, there is a stainless-steel under bench oven and a large pantry. The kitchen is central to a comfortable lounge and a roomy dining zone that will easily seat eight, and there is a magnificent feature fireplace. The eye is drawn however to the outside where a full-length, 80 square metre timber deck is perfect for enjoying warm summer evenings and the beautiful views across the Moorooduc Plains to Red Hill. Completing the internals is the elegant master bedroom with a walk-through robe opening to an ensuite with twin vanity unit and shower. In this highly prized location, just minutes from Benton’s Square, schools and shops, this spectacular home is set behind a mature hedge on a generous, neatly landscaped 1114 square metre allotment.n

‘Go to websites for answers’ – MP, CEO Greg Hunt’s advice to Sylvia Simons to and the community to “engage in AGL’s feedback process via Jay Gleeson of AGL” left me openmouthed (“MP urges ‘feedback’ for gas terminal” see page 7). The icing on the cake was receiving the same brush off from Mornington Peninsula Shire Council. Last Tuesday night, 22 May, four questions regarding the proposed floating gas terminal at Crib Point were asked at the public meeting held in Rosebud. The response? CEO Carl Cowie took the questions and announced that AGL’s community engagement website was the best avenue. One of the questions touched on the Kawasaki coal to hydrogen project, which will ship out of Hastings. Same gob-smacking advice: refer to the hydrogen energy supply chain website. Funny. I didn’t realise that AGL and Kawasaki were looking after constituents’ concerns. Nor did I comprehend that they were now representing residents. Perhaps they would like to receive my next rates payment. We should be very deeply concerned that our paid representatives feel it is acceptable to tell us to engage with corporations whose sole strategic goal is profit. Louise Page, Tyabb

Time for toughness It’s time the Mornington Peninsula Shire got some good old intestinal fortitude and started baring its teeth at these fools who illegally chop down trees in our, yes, our foreshore (“Hunt on for foreshore tree loppers” The News 22/5/18). In Frankston, they find the perpetrator, place a big

sign in front of their house blocking the view that states that they are tree vandals and hit them with a very heavy fine. What do we have down here? We have signs about the size of an A4 sheet of paper obscured in the foreshore telling us that, if caught, the tree vandal may, only may, be fined up to $130,000 and may be charged with criminal damage. We get told by the shire it’s hard to prove such vandalism to bring charges to bear. It’s not rocket science, line up where the tree was and the house that has the fantastic new bay view. The large sign stays there, in front of the usually two-storey house until the new tree that is planted to replace the one lopped down has grown enough to obscure the view. The vandals should also get the maximum fine and be publicly named. It certainly begs the question how the neighbours did not hear the chain saw and report it to the police. Oh, by the way, could some of the home owners that have absolute foreshore frontages tell me where they purchased these normally tall trees and shrubs that only grow about two metres high? John Cain, McCrae

Environmental threats It’s obviously in the blood of Liberal/National Party environment ministers to give the green light to wholesale environmental destruction. [Flinders MP] Greg Hunt, under his rule gave the green light to the biggest coal mine in Australia against available advice from environmental protectors and climate scientists.

Now, Josh Frydenberg is entertaining to strip great swathes of Queensland of their forests, despite warnings from his own department of possible terrible consequences to the Great Barrier Reef from silt runoff. Here in Victoria our Labor government is destroying our native forests wholesale. If mountain ash timber is needed so badly for furniture it could be harvested selectively, without destroying the whole ecosystems of our highlands. It seems our governments of any colour are working extra hard to reduce our planet to an ecological disaster area, unfit for human survival. Rupert Steiner, Balnarring

Eagles kill livestock I have little doubt that the farmers were right and the eagles joined forces to kill that newborn calf (“Farmer says eagles killed calf” The News 22/5/18). Probably one eagle distracted the mother and another couple knocked the calf down and held it down while they proceeded to tear at the its soft parts. Eagles do cooperate at times. My father experienced the tactics of eagles who combined in groups to knock down and eventually kill the whole of a small flock of sheep weakened by starvation. Dad had bought a group of sheep starving on a bare wheat farm. He chivvied them at their own pace about 80 kilometres through Mallee scrub to his property on the saltbush plains of the north Eyre Peninsula in South Australia. It was either 1953 or 54 when eagles came down in their hundreds from the drought stricken north of South Australia. The sheep would have recovered, without doubt, if it were not for the hungry birds. He too was met by disbelief. Henry Broadbent, Somers

Vote for Joe Nepean MP Martin Dixon is quick to blame Labor for the freeway noise, but when he was a minister he could get nothing done about it

either. So what is he going on about? Oh yea, an election on the horizon. You might wonder why nothing has been done. The issue is that this is a safe Liberal seat and if they ran Dewie the dog he would win and, therefore, it behoves neither party to listen and act. So the only way to get some recognition of the peninsula from the state government is for the seat to become contested. And, I might add, the hundreds of millions of dollars the state is wasting on the Mornington Peninsula Freeway (putting up motorcycle death barriers) and whatever it is doing between Jetty and Boneo roads on the freeway extension could have been better used to fix the many blind spots and real safety issues we have (before freeway noise barriers). So make this seat a marginal seat and write in Joe Lenzo for MP on the ballot (a little bit of hyperbole here). Joe Lenzo, Safety Beach Editor: Russell Joseph, Mr Dixon’s electorate office manager, is the endorsed Liberal Party candidate for the seat of Nepean.

Timetable for pier I’d like to call on the state MP for Carrum, Sonya Kilkenny, to advise the people of Seaford when the long suffering Seaford pier will be re-constructed; how much has been earmarked for the revamp; and, whether the works will be for the entire pier or just the damaged area in question. There has been a lot of back patting going on but little detail insofar as actually getting the work done. I speak for many Seaford residents when I say I’d love to see the pier fully revamped and reopened as soon as possible. I am also concerned, like many residents are, about the gaps in the wooden sleepers along the length of the pier. Will these also be addressed? Kris Bolam, Frankston City councillor

100 YEARS AGO THIS WEEK...

Hastings men enlist on Empire Day Compiled by Brodie Cowburn MESSRS F. H. Goodwin and L. Watt both of Hastings have enlisted and will enter camp shortly. The best wishes of all residents go with these two young men who are going to “do their bit” for the Empire. Empire Day celebrations passed very successfully here. A report of the proceedings will appear next issue. *** IN the 405th Casualty List, published on Thursday the following names appear under the heading of wounded: Pte. C. W. Beard, Balnarring; Pte. H. S. Sawyer, Moorooduc (gas); Sgt. S. Vialls, Carrum; and Driver T. Tulloch, Carrum. *** A PICTURE night will be given in the Frankston Mechanics’ hall on Saturday evening, June 8th, in aid of the Langwarrin Camp. A feature of the programme will be the screening of the fim taken on the occasion of the Pageant of Loyalty at Frankston. Besides pictures, there will be instrumental items, the Langwarrin orchestra will be present, and Sergeant Widburn will render several comic items. *** A FOOTBALL match between Frankston and Somerville juniors was played at Frankston on Saturday last. Frankston proved altogether too good for the visitors, whom they defeated by 7.16 to 1 point. The goal kickers for Frankston were Burton 4, Comb and Matson. Vansuylen, Biggs, and Westaway worked

hard to avert defeat, while the best for Frankston were Coxall, Burton, Gabriel, Wilkinson and Tivendale. M Kemp umpired satisfactorily. *** TODAY (Sat) a number of returned soldiers will be entertained at Frankston by members of the “Wattte Club”. A cinematograph operator will be in attendance to take a series of pictures when the soldiers arrive and during their procession through the town. We understand these pictures will be shown in connection with Captain Conants new picture play “His Only Chance” recently screened in Melbourne in connection with the Red Cross effort. It is requested that townspeople make a liberal display of bunting and that they turn out in force to welcome the soldiers so as to ensure not only a right royal welcome to our warriors but also that the picture when screened will be one worthy of Frankston. *** THE efforts of the Tyabb school committee resulted in a great success on Friday evening last at the concert and dance which had been organised in aid of the Education Department’s special Red Cross appeal. At the concert the hall was crowded, and a fair number were unable to find a seat. An excellent programme, comprised of all local talent, was submitted, and the first part, which was mostly made up by the school children, reflected great credit on Mr Hughes, Miss Young, and others who had trained them. The opportunity was taken of bid-

ding farewell and making a presentation to Mr Hughes, who is about to leave the district. *** EMPIRE Day was celebrated last Friday and although the weather was not all that could be desired for such an event, the attendance was splendid. In the morning the Somerville school children marched up to the Mechanics Institute where children from the Moorooduc and Baxter schools were already assembled. The proceedings opened with the singing of the National Anthem. Cr. Murray chairman of the school committee, in his opening address, said today the Empire was sorely pressed but all beleived that she would come out triumphantly. In speaking of the loyalty of the children, Cr Murray said that they had been saving their pocket money for Prisoners of War Fund, and in five weeks had raised £10 10s. On behalf of the school committee he wished to to thank the Baxter and Moorooduc schools for their co-operation on this occasion. *** AS was anticipated, the concert given on Empire Day in aid of the Australian Red Cross Fund, was a great musical treat. The attendance was very poor owing to laudable efforts, for the same good cause, at Seaford, Carrum and Somerville, on the same evening, attracting many local patrons. In addition, a not to-be-missedon-any-account picture film of the Frankston Pageant of Loyalty, on the 8th of June, for another most worthy cause compelled many to reserve

their shillings for such a unique and interesting treat *** MISS Gillard, who has been in charge of the Langwarrin State School for the past three years, is leaving to take charge of a school at Burnley, and is to be succeeded by Mr Clancy, a returned soldier, who though a married man with a family, enlisted and did his bit for King and country. During Miss Gillard’s stay increased interest has been taken by the parents and others in school events and it is mainly owing to her perseverance and energy *** A VERY pretty wedding was quietly celebrated at Frankston on Saturday last, the contracting parties being Mr. T. K. S. Summers, (late A.I.F) third son of Mr and Mrs. J. H. Summers, of Underbool, and Margaret, third daughter of Mr. and Mrs. W. W. Young, of Frankston. The Rev. Webster, of Mornington officiated. The bride, who was given away by her father looked charming in a dainty white frock of crepe de chene and georgette, with the customary veil and wreath of orange blossom. Miss Jean Young acted as bridesmaid. and Mr. A. G. Young (late A.I.F) supported the bride groom. *** IN aid of the above deserving cause to help the Australian fighting men in the trenches to keep fit for their great work of helping to defend Australia, the Camberwell Patriotic Players gave an enjoyable entertainment on Saturday May 25th. The Somerville Hall was filled to

the doors with a very appreciative audience. The first part consisted of a well selected variety of songs, dances etc. showing talent far above the ordinary. Mr Leslie Brunning was a host in himself and supplied the comedy element in the first part as well as in the name part of the screaming farce which followed. *** CR. J. Dobson-Hesp, J.P., Hon. Secretary of the Hobart branch of the Overseas club, and well known in newspaper circles in Southern Tasmania, together with Mrs Dobson- Hesp, paid a flying visit to the district, and spent the weekend at Frankston. *** INCLEMENT weather did not debar a crowd of patriotic performers from journeying to Pearcedale from Somerville on Wednesday evening, 22nd May in order to amuse the folks of that Village with a grand entertainment; nor did the elements prevent the inhabitants of that village from rolling up in great numbers to be entertained. Both the programme and audience were excellent, and each was thoroughly satisfied with the night. The entertainment was given in the local school room, and owing to the great crowd present there was scarcely room to pack another individual in. The proceeds amounted to nearly £5, and this will be given to the Education Department for the Red Cross appeal. *** From the pages of the Mornington Standard, 1 June 1918

THE MEANING OF EXISTENCE... AND OTHER SHORT STORIES

When A Ford Focus Looks Into Your Soul By Stuart McCullough I SWEAR it’s trying to tell me something. Without my so much as asking, it takes the initiative. It probably means well, but the cold, hard truth of the matter is that these efforts are both unnecessary and unwelcome. Put simply, it’s reading my mood all wrong and – if I’m being honest about it – I’m beginning to find it quite tedious. It’s not helpful and every time it happens it seems like a misreading of the circumstances. Honestly, it’s as though my wife’s Ford Focus doesn’t know me at all. When I’m in my wife’s car, it’s usually because it’s my turn to take the dog, Fozzie, to one of her many social activities. In many respects, I feel that I’m starting to live vicariously through our pet. If our dog had fingers instead of paws and was computer literate, she’d definitely have more facebook friends than I do. Whenever Fozzie and I travel together, we tune the radio to Classic FM. There’s something about driving around Albert Park Lake with a large dog gazing out the window to the sound of Strauss’s ‘Thus Spoke Zarathustra’ that feels right. The dog is also a big fan of Chopin, as it happens. I drop off the dog and watch as she disappears to hang out with her many friends before I return to the car. I start the engine and it’s here that the vehicle intervenes and ruins everything. Instead of Classic FM, I am often treated to a blast of GOLD FM instead. Because it occurs randomly, I’m always taken by surprise. Anyone would be. It’s no good if you’re

expecting Rachmaninov and, instead, get an earful of Barry Ryan’s ‘Eloise’ or Haysi Fantaysi. It’s hard to do a decent u-turn when your senses are being assaulted by ‘The Pina Colada Song’ by Rupert Holmes. It’s part of a startling trend. One where the devices that are so much a part of our lives have started to assume what we will and will not like. My Netflix account has a list of shows that are suggested viewing based on my previous habits. Helpfully, it states why they’re suggesting a particular show. As though to say that if you didn’t want us to suggest this God-awful movie, then you shouldn’t have had the audacity to select this completely different movie at an earlier time.

Sometimes I can see where they’re coming from. There’s some kind of logic at play. I understand that they’re suggesting ‘That’s My Boy’ starring Adam Sandler because I watched ‘The Meyerowitz Stories’ which also stars Adam Sandler even though the latter is a thoughtful family drama and the former is the cinematic equivalent of the start of daylight savings in that a period of time disappears for no good reason. On other occasions, the folks at Netflix are way, way off. Recently, my nephew and niece had a show about shark attacks and a documentary of Auschwitz appear on their ‘suggested viewing’ list. They are six and eight years old respectively and only watch kids films. How you get from ‘Toy Story’ to Nazi atrocities is

beyond me. ITunes is the same. It makes all kinds of bizarre-o suggestions as to what it thinks I should be listening to. No – I won’t be listening to Britney Spears performing her hits with the London Philharmonic Orchestra while accompanying herself on a Zimbabwean Thumb-Piano. Nor will I be investing the time or emotional energy required to listen to the nine-volume box set version of Limp Bizkit’s ‘Chocolate Starfish and the Hot Dog Flavored Water’, even if the computer says I should. I couldn’t stand it the first time round. It’s unlikely I’ll change my mind and declare Fred Durst an underappreciated genius any time soon. The only thing worse than our

devices getting it wrong is when they get it right. When they suggest things that we might like that we’d never admit to others. It’s at those moments that I feel violated. I want the computer to do as I say. I don’t want it looking into my soul. That, deep down, I really want to re-watch the entire series of Anne of Green Gables starring Megan Follows, Colleen Dewhurst and Richard Farnsworth because viewing it over my sisters’ shoulders when I was a kid was a formative experience, is something that only I should know. I don’t want it thrown in my face. Perhaps I doth protest too much. Rather than being offended by the decision of my wife’s Ford Focus to change radio stations, maybe it knows me better than myself. It knows that, deep-down, I don’t really want to be listening to high-falutin’ orchestral works and symphonic tone poems. It can tell that what I really crave is a three minute pop-song with an ear-worm chorus that I’m going to be humming under my breath for the rest of the day whether I want to or not. I’ve got to wrap this up. Soon, I’ve got to go and pick up the dog. She doesn’t like to wait. I’ll admit I feel a little nervous, as I’m not sure what the Ford Focus has in store for me. It’s going to be quite revealing, I think. Only once I hear the radio will I truly know what it is I’m thinking. It’s a reckoning of a kind. I’ll just need to make sure that I’ve got it set back on Classic FM before the dog gets in. I wouldn’t want her to judge me. She has strong views on music. stuart@stuartmccullough.com

Powerhouses collapse in round of upsets DIVISION ONE

By Brodie Cowburn AFTER interleague action saw MPNFL football take a break last weekend, Division One football returned with a bang on Saturday in a day of shocking results. The biggest turn up of the round came from Olympic Oval, where Rosebud took on a normally dependable Frankston YCW at home. Frankston YCW were coming off their first loss of the season last round against Pines, and would have been keen to stamp their authority with a dominant performance against lowly ninth placed Rosebud. Despite that, Rosebud did well to hang in the game with their stronger opponents, only trailing by three points at quarter time and two points at half time. Going into the final break, the scores were tied at 54 apiece, setting up for a thrilling last quarter. Swayed by the momentum of the home crowd, it was Rosebud who stormed home to take all four points in a nail biting game, claiming the win 10.12 (72) to 10.7 (67) Michael Debenham kicked three goals and put in a best on ground performance for his Frankston YCW side, but it was not enough to drag them over the line as the traditional powerhouse lost their second game in a row. There was another stunning result on Saturday as ladder leaders Sorrento travelled to the home of the Frankston Bombers to take on the sixth placed outfit. Frankston have suffered from a very inconsistent start to their season, and were widely expected to struggle against Sorrento, who have been outstanding so far this year. Sorrento were also helped by the fact they had very few representatives in the MPNFL side for interleague football last weekend, meaning they came into this game fit and rested. It was the Bombers who shocked their home crowd by racing out of the

blocks with a five goal first quarter, taking a 13 point lead into the first break. From then on Sorrento wrestled their way back into the contest to go into half time with a narrow lead, but as the match continued they failed to put the feisty Frankston side away. The contest remained close throughout the day, but in the end it was Frankston who kicked away to take out a hard fought victory. Samuel Fox was the pick of the goalscorers for the winning side with three majors, while Jake Greeley and former Western Bulldog Jarrad Grant contributed with two goals each of

their own in the 12.11 (83) to 11.7 (73) win. Over at Pines’ Eric Bell Reserve, the home team played host to a Mornington side riding the momentum of a momentous win last round against Bonbeach. Looking to make it two on the trot after claiming their first win of the season in their previous game, Mornington looked a good chance to cause another upset and keep their good form going. As the game got underway, Mornington looked much the better side, taking an 11 point lead into quarter time and playing with confidence.

The contest was neck and neck from that point on, with the margin at threequarter time standing at just three points Mornington’s way. Despite showing a lot of fight, the brave Mornington side were overrun in the last quarter, as Pines piled on six goals to one in the final quarter to take out a comfortable win. Aaron Edwards returned to form with a dominating performance for Pines, with his seven goal haul proving the difference between the two sides in a 15.9 (99) to 11.11 (77) win. Elsewhere, Bonbeach put on a dominant performance at home, bouncing

back from their disappointing loss to Mornington with a comprehensive victory against Seaford. The sides entered the game placed seventh and eighth on the ladder, and both sides were looking to make amends for bad losses in the previous round. On paper the match looked as if it should be a close contest, but Bonbeach were quick to make sure that was not the case, holding Seaford to just one behind in their first quarter and taking a 21 point lead into the first break. Seaford were unable to fight their way back into the game, and Bonbeach stayed in control thanks to great performances from in-form Jackson Casey, Jack Williams, and Beau Bailey who was the pick of the goalkickers with three majors. Any chance of a Seaford comeback was ultimately crushed by their own poor goalkicking, as they fell to Bonbeach 14.8 (92) to 6.12 (48) At Regents Park on Saturday, Edithvale-Aspendale and Mt Eliza were set for an important match which would see the winner cement their position in the top three. Given the other results of the day, the winner of this clash would also go level on points with the two top sides, raising the stakes for the game to another level. In the early stages, it was Mt Eliza who looked as if they would come out on top, establishing a strong 21 point lead at the quarter time break. Despite their strong start, complacency got the better them, and Edithvale-Aspendale stormed into the lead with a stunning second quarter that saw them score eight goals to zero. Mt Eliza were much better after the main break, but ultimately could not fight back from Edithvale-Aspendale’s brilliant second quarter effort, as the score eventually finished 12.12 (84) to 9.16 (70) Edithvale-Aspendale’s way. Michael Bussey was the best on ground on the day, with his four goals helping to gain his side an important victory.

Thrillers and thrashings in Division Two action DIVISION TWO

By Brodie Cowburn IT was a weekend of vastly contrasting games in MPNFL Division Two action, as two matches were decided by a solitary point while two matches were decided by margins of over 80. At Ballam Park, Karingal suffered an almighty scare as Red Hill battled hard to nearly upset their second placed opponents. The lead swung back and forth throughout the match, and going into three-quarter time it looked as if an upset was on the cards as Red Hill held a seven point lead away from home. In a nail biting finish, Karingal were able to just gain the upper hand and held the narrowest of leads as the final siren sounded, taking out nervy win 9.12 (66) to 9.11 (65). Karingal put together a great team performance to get the win, with eight individual goalkickers making a contribution. Elsewhere, Langwarrin also had to fight tooth and nail to secure a one point victory, with their win coming against third placed Chelsea in a stunning upset performance. While both sides traded blows and looked equally matched heading into half time, Chelsea were able to stamp their authority in the third quarter, heading into the main break with a comfortable 19 point lead. Despite holding what looked like a strong

PAGE 48

lead, Chelsea were unable to weather the final quarter Langwarrin storm, as they raced home with a five goals to two blitz. Curtis Bywater was Chelsea’s best on ground, as he booted six goals for the second consecutive week, but his effort was topped by another dominant Jesse Murphy display for Langwarrin, as he kicked seven goals. Murphy has now scored a remarkable 18 goals in his past three games, with his seven on Saturday helping his side to a thrilling 15.8 (98) to 14.13 (97) victory. Another struggler for the season in Somerville also celebrated a win on the weekend, although they did so in a much more comfortable fashion than their Langwarrin or Karingal rivals. Hosting Tyabb at home, Somerville impressed with a dominant and assertive display of football. Seven goals from Somerville player/coach Andrejs Everitt in a best on ground performance was the highlight of the day, as his side ran home with a more than comfortable 82 point victory, with the score being 20.12 (132) to 7.8 (50) at the final siren. If things were easy for Somerville, they were even more so for Dromana, who pummelled a helpless Pearcedale to extend their unbeaten start to the season. The tenth placed Pearcedale were always outsiders for this clash, and the game went

Southern Peninsula News 29 May 2018

as expected. Pearcedale could only manage one goal in the entire first half of football, and went into the half time break down by an insurmountable 78 points. During the second half, Pearcedale looked more threatening, but ultimately they could do little to stop the rampant Dromana train that is currently running right through the middle of the league. Dromana finished with 12 individual goalkickers, with Ethan Johnstone and Jack Gipp the best among them with four apiece. Dromana will face off against Langwarrin next weekend unbeaten, top of the ladder, and full of confidence following a 111 point win, 6.12 (48) to 25.9 (159). Crib Point also had a great weekend, as they hosted Devon Meadows at home on Saturday. Sitting rooted to the bottom of the ladder after a winless start to the year, the home side came racing out of the blocks to take a 12 point lead into the quarter time break. The home side held their lead throughout the day but couldn’t gain enough momentum to land the killer blow, as they went into three-quarter time only ten points ahead their Devon Meadows opponents. Despite the pressure, Crib Point held strong to pick up their first win of the year, running out 9.8 (62) to 6.11 (47) winners.

Morris-Thomas new Seaford coach SOCCER

By Craig MacKenzie SEAFORD United has appointed star midfielder Matt Morris-Thomas as senior coach after Paulo Pinheiro’s resignation last week. Pinheiro fell on his sword with his side staring at a second successive relegation following a nightmare start to the 2018 State 3 South-East season. Morris-Thomas, 28, will be assisted by former Seaford player and reserves coach Stuart Mitchell and faces a monumental task to avoid the drop. He has decided to step down as a player which caught most observers by surprise given the lack of quality in the senior squad. “This is my first senior coaching job and I didn’t want to put too much pressure on myself but it’s a decision we can review down the track,” MorrisThomas said. “I’ve always wanted to get into coaching so after Paulo resigned I decided to put my hand up and give it a go.” Former Seaford defender Cam Bryden, Frankston Pines defender Dion Brown and ex-Rosebud Heart winger Callum Richardson signed with Seaford late last week and it’s believed that Morris-Thomas is tracking at least two other players. Brown is serving a three-match suspension but will be available for Seaford’s catch-up round away match against Brighton on 9 June. Despite losing 3-1 at home to league leader South Yarra on Saturday Harry McCartney reports that Seaford fans were heartened by a much more competitive display from a side which has struggled for some time. South Yarra took the lead in the 20th minute when Seaford keeper Pat Bretherton did well to save a shot from Elvis Imarhiagbe only for Samuel Mepham to tuck away the rebound. The home team hit back in the 33rd minute when a Dylan Waugh cross was met by Matty Schwellinger who slid in at the back post to level. In the 40th minute a South Yarra free-kick played over the top of the defensive line was volleyed home by Thomas Meredith to restore South Yarra’s lead. A handling error by Bretherton in the 80th minute gave Meredith a second goal and put the contest out of Seaford’s reach. In sharp contrast to Seaford’s season State 3 promotion candidate Skye United recorded its sixth straight win when it travelled to Whitehorse United last weekend and won 2-1.

After a dour first half a left-foot strike from captain Marcus Collier in the first minute of the second half broke the deadlock. The home team hit back less than 10 minutes later when Peter Seehusen converted from the penalty spot. Skye weathered the storm for the next 15 minutes then Chris Driver’s corner found Caleb Nicholes unmarked on the penalty spot and he volleyed home to clinch all three points. In State 2 South-East news Peninsula Strikers had to settle for a share of the spoils after drawing 2-2 at home to Doncaster Rovers last weekend. Strikers took the lead in the 32nd minute with a slick break that saw Ryan Thompson send Femi Orenuga clear and the former Everton academy striker rounded Doncaster keeper Jayden Allan and tapped the ball into the unguarded goal. The visitors levelled in the 63rd minute when substitute Silver Issoufson was unmarked at the back post to chest in a cross from the right. Strikers went back in front in the 79th minute after Nathan Smith sent Orenuga down the left and he rolled the ball inside into the path of Ryan Wilson whose superb first-time strike from the edge of the box gave Allan no chance.

But Issoufson proved to be the thorn in Strikers’ side and in the 86th minute he skated clear on the left then chipped the ball to the far post where Peter Addo headed home. Fellow State 2 outfit Frankston Pines was dealt a cruel blow when a deflected strike by Maxime Lucas in the 92nd minute gave North Caulfield a 2-1 victory at Monterey Reserve on Sunday. Pines coach Paul Williams surprised by playing captain Graham Hill up front and it looked like a masterstroke when Hill was played in by CJ Hodgson in the 12th minute to put Pines ahead. In the 21st minute Pines midfielder Will O’Brien received a second yellow card and was sent off. North Caulfield took until the 74th minute to level after a superb turn and pinpoint strike by striker Daniel Sacks. Pines gave as good as it got but Hill and substitute Mitch Landers both blew great chances to score late in the contest. In State 1 South-East a Brandon Jansz strike in injury time continued Mornington’s recent resurgence when it travelled to Victory Park and defeated Caulfied United Cobras 2-1 on Saturday.

Keegan Ziada had opened the scoring for Mornington in the 58th minute before Danny Topping equalised in the 77th minute. Dale White’s side has now won four on the trot and sits third but still some way off the pace set by Manningham and Richmond. In State 4 South Baxter lost 2-1 away to Keysborough on Saturday. Baxter hit the front after seven minutes when Jake Kidder won the ball in midfield and set up Matt Morgan for a close range finish into the roof of the net. Alan Lipsett should have put the visitors further ahead in the 15th minute but he somehow failed to convert a tap-in from a Kidder cross from the left. Against the run of play a cross from Kui Mu in the 21st minute picked out Nathan Calle who chested down then volleyed home to make it 1-1. Striker Lawrence Komba from Skye United made his Baxter debut in the second half but was scythed down in the 60th minute after a superb run into the Keysborough area. Baxter fans were mystified when no penalty was awarded and Komba was carried off. In the 70th minute Keysborough’s Sebastian Gueho did well to win the

ball in midfield then send man-of-thematch Masur Kuei clear on the left and his finish settled the issue. Baxter’s best was goalkeeper James Foster who denied Keysborough on several occasions. In State 5 South Somerville Eagles suffered a setback to their promotion push by going down 1-0 at home to Pakenham United in a tough physical contest on Saturday. A slip from the otherwise impressive Matt Swanson in the 70th minute allowed Pakenham substitute Daniel Castillo to tuck the ball away from close range. First half chances to Somerville player-coach Dave Greening and Andrew Yeo should have sent the home team in with a lead at the break. Greening wasted a further two chances in the second half while Eagles keeper Brad Klarenbeek saved a penalty. “Overall I can’t fault the effort of my players today, we gave everything but it was just one of those days where we missed some chances and got caught with a sucker punch,” Greening said. “We kept going right until the final whistle but fair play to Pakenham, they are a tough, hard working side.” In NPL2 news Langwarrin lost 4-1 at home to Brunswick City last weekend. Paul Speed put Langy ahead in the 14th minute but goals from Juan Portillo, Jakub Mlcak, Ali Turgut and Baggio Yusuf gave the visitors an emphatic victory. In NPLW news, Southern United clashed with Bulleen on Sunday with a late kick-off to the senior match. Southern’s under-12s lost 2-0, the under-14s suffered a rare defeat going down 3-1 with Candy Kilderry scoring for Southern from the penalty spot, the under-16s lost 5-2 with Haylea Porter scoring twice for Southern while the under-19s lost 5-0.

Santa presents in Group One Goodwood

Group One gift: Santa Ana Lane provides trainer Anthony Freedman with his second Group One in May. Picture: Supplied

By Ben Triandafillou PINECLIFF, Mount Eliza-based trainer Anthony Freedman has notched his second $1 million Group One sprint feature at Morphettville for the month of May. Freedman’s five-year-old gelding Santa Ana Lane flew late to capture South Australia’s premier race, the $1 million Group One Goodwood on Saturday 19 May, just two weeks after his star filly Shoals claimed the $1 million Group One Sangster Stakes. Freedman’s racing manager Brad Taylor said Santa Ana Lane had given every indication that he was ready to deliver in the Group One race. “We were super-confident coming here,” he said. “His work during the week was very good. He just needed luck. “It was a super ride from Ben (Melham). He found all the gaps and produced that burst we knew he had.” The Group One worthy ride by Melham saw Santa Ana Lane settle at the rear of the field before darting towards the inside rail and letting down in the final 150 meters to run away from 2017 Goodwood runnerup, Missrock, who again settled for second place. Freedman’s Adelaide sprint racing

double bought up the stables fifth Group One victory for the season. He’ll be looking to add another one to the tally when Santa Ana Lane linesup in the 1350m Stradbroke Handicap in Brisbane on Saturday 9 June, alongside stablemate Mr Sneaky. Freedman said the well-travelled Santa Ana Lane, who has competed across five states in his 26-start career, would return to his Pinecliff stables before heading interstate for the Stradbroke. “He’ll spend a few days in a paddock and then we’ll take him to Flemington and then hopefully get a flight to Brisbane,” he said. Freedman also said on his website that Shoals, who was looking at travelling to Royal Ascot this year, will be spelled after winning her third Group One race from her past four starts, and will be targeted towards the $13 million The Everest. “She has nothing left to prove this season,” he said. “She has won from 1200 (metres) to a mile, won in three states and beaten the older mares twice. “She has had a terrific season, to win three Group Ones with her just shows the talent she has.”

New Zealand snaps first victory By Ben Triandafillou AFL New Zealand has recorded their first win on Australian soil after defeating a Mornington Peninsula interleague team on Friday 11 May. In a close encounter, New Zealand’s under-18 boy’s side (6.9.45) saluted by five points over the Mornington Peninsula Junior Football League boys (5.10.40) at Bluescope Oval, Hastings.

PAGE 50

After a spine-tingling Haka, New Zealand were first on the scoreboard as Quinn Pocock snapped the opening goal for the visitors. New Zealand looked to narrowly contain the lead throughout the match, but the home side didn’t cave in and continued to chip away at a 15-point margin heading into the final quarter. The MPJFL boy’s side fought to the final whistle but it was New Zealand who claimed the victory.

Southern Peninsula News 29 May 2018

New Zealand’s victory in the under-18 boys match flipped the results from the MPJFL’s New Zealand Tour over the Anzac Day weekend which saw both the MPJFL’s under-14s and under-15/16s boy’s sides return home as victors. The Bluescope Steelers Youth Girls weren’t as successful on the score board over the New Zealand Tour, but had the honour of being the first girls’ team to play on Westpac Stadium

against New Zealand in a curtain raiser to the AFLNZ V AFL Academy level one game. MPJFL president Andrew Souter said competing against an international side is an incredible experience to offer the players. “It is always an honour and a privilege to play representative sport at any level, however to play an international representative match is an opportunity that most will never

experience,” he said. “Overall these young people did Australia, our league and themselves very proud by displaying fantastic sportsmanship and comradery over the tour. “We are all extremely keen to ensure that this exciting venture continues.”

Gulls salute in onepoint nail biters BASKETBALL

DIVISION One was full of nail-biters in week nine of the Big V, with every game from the Bayside clubs resulting in one-point victories. Chelsea Gulls notched up two of those wins as they clutched one-point victories over Geelong Supercats (8887) and Whittlesea Pacers (96-97). The Gulls survived an overtime scare at home to pip the Supercats, with Corey Standerfer’s (15pts, 11rbs, 11ast) free throw proving pivotal in the side’s success. Matt Brasser (22pts) and Mitch Riggs (22pts) also delivered for the Gulls, while the visitors managed 16 points out of Lewis Varley. The Gulls backed it up on the Sunday with another one-point victory after travelling behind the Pacers by as much as 15 points during the game. Stewart-Paul Tyrell delivered a tip‐in in the dying seconds to snatch the win, while Corey Standerfer finished with 32 points, and Mitch Riggs and Matt Brasser ended with 21 points each. Chelsea Gulls head coach Peter Caspersz said there were mixed feelings after the narrow victories.

“It’s certainly nice to win the tight matches as it shows composure,” he said. “We are certainly scoring high, but it’s a matter of locking down our defence now in training and making sure the others can’t match it with us.” Western Port Steelers also clung on to a one-point margin as they held off a strong, late surge by Collingwood All Stars (83-84) to slot their eighth win for the season. For the victors, Dylan Travis (28pts) led the way in a tough battle and the All Stars’ Manny Hendrix (28pts, 9ast) starred in a late charge home. In the women’s division one, Chelsea Gulls and Western Port Steelers both suffered losses at home to the Geelong Supercats and Camberwell Dragons respectively. The Supercats had all the momentum in the middle stages of the game against Chelsea and while the Gulls had the edge in the fourth quarter, it only bought the margin to within single digits. Geelong walked away with a nine-point victory (60-69). It continues to be a long season for the Steelers adding a 10th loss to their tally as the Dragons (39-51) secured

their seventh win and moved into fourth position. In division two, the Southern Peninsula men had a 53-point loss to Craigieburn Eagles (102-49) as they take their winning streak to eight wins and move to the top of the table. This was the last game the Sharks had without star recruit Colin Voss who had been sidelined and they’re hoping with him back in the side the results can start to turn around. The Mornington Breakers had a 17-point loss to the North East Bushrangers but played with a short bench so in a sense it was a brave effort. Fiona Darnell scored a game high of 20 points for the Breakers while Ricki Lee McCombe also had a solid game scoring 18 points.
