Top citizen wants to extend and expand autism care Liz Bell liz@mpnews.com.au MORNINGTON Peninsula’s Citizen of the Year Bianca Appleford established the Light Up Autism Foundation on the southern peninsula, providing opportunities for children with autism spectrum disorder to access intensive therapy at school for no cost

to the families. The program is overseen by a psychologist and applied behaviour analysis (ABA) therapist, and run by skilled integration staff. After discovering the importance of early intervention when her own son was diagnosed as being on the autism spectrum, Ms Appleford established the foundation to provide support for other families.

She said the hoped the award would help raise awareness of the importance of tailored therapy for children with ASD, and lift the profile of the Light Up Autism Foundation, which promotes ABA therapy as the most effective approach for improving the social, emotional and cognitive outcomes of children. “I think there are lots of families on

the peninsula who don’t get the help they need when it comes to the right therapy for their children, so I’d really like to see more awareness, more money for families that need it, and more programs available in mainstream schools,” she said. Ms Appleford is hoping to run a pilot program that will see ABA therapy widely recognised as a way of

Fencing off the Pillars Stephen Taylor steve@mpnews.com.au TOURIST hotspot the Pillars at Mt Martha will be fenced off for two years in a bid to stop further deterioration of the registered Aboriginal heritage site and appease residents appalled by young thrill-seekers trashing their neighbourhood. As well as erecting a $200,000 180-metre fence, the shire will meet with Aboriginal Affairs Victoria and the Department of Environment, Land, Water and Planning to “reinforce and protect” the cultural heritage values of the site in accordance with the Aboriginal Cultural Heritage Act. It will also write to DELWP to seek its “direction and advice” on putting in place legal processes to prohibit

She would like to see business provide funding, and more training available for school staff. “My goal when I started the Light up Autism Foundation was to help children and families with ASD, but it’s great if this award raises the profile of therapy and helps it get to more families.” CITIZEN of the Year Bianca Appleford.

public access to the Pillars. It will cost a further $60,000 to place a shire officer at the site to “promote awareness and educate visitors on the need to close the Pillars to protect the cultural heritage, preserve the natural environment and reduce the number of visitors jumping of the cliff face”. The fence will also require an estimated $20,000 a year to maintain. There will be no action taken to prevent boats or jet skis delivering jumpers to the cliffs and no real of stopping people walking around or over the fence. The two-metre high fence was agreed on at a special council meeting Tuesday night and backed by all councillors except newcomer David Gill, who said later the shire should ban visitors from the site.

State, shire recognise service with awards THE Mornington Peninsula was well represented in this year’s Australia Day Honours List, which recognised almost 200 Victorians among 958 people from various industries and communities around the country. Among the recipients from the peninsula were Denis Baguley, AM; Heath Davidson, OAM; Garry Moncrieff, Emergency Services Medal; Brendan Woodsell (formerly of HMAS Cerberus, Crib Point), OAM; Andrew Niven Creek, OAM; and Carmel O’Brien, OAM. Mornington Peninsula Shire announced its 2017 Australia Day Award winners at Rosebud Memorial Hall on Thursday, with Rye mother Bianca Appleford named as Citizen of the Year for her work in the area of autism. A new award, the Lifetime Achievement Award, was presented to Rye resident Barry Irving, who was nominated for his community involvement in many areas. Young Citizen of the Year and Mt Martha resident, Stephanie Byrnes, 24, has been a full-time volunteer at Fusion Mornington Peninsula since January 2015. Dedicated to making a difference, she lives alongside young people who are experiencing homelessness in Fusion’s supported accommodation services. In addition to her on-site living, Ms Byrnes mentors young people as part of the Fusion support program. Community Event of the Year, the About Kids’ Fun Run with the K163 steam train is a partnership between Mt Eliza Rotary Club and Mornington Railway Preservation Society. The inaugural fun run last year raised $19,550 for Frankston Hospital’s paediatric unit to buy five children’s beds. The Bravery Award went to Ben Brunton and Edward Fuggle, both 14, who were volunteering at the Rye Yacht Club’s Discover Sailing Day when a jet ski rider was stranded offshore in rough weather. Both boys rushed to the rescue and helped signal the Rye Yacht Club safety boat. Mornington Peninsula Shire mayor Cr Bev Colomb said the Australia Day Awards “inspire us to make our own contribution to creating a better Mornington Peninsula”. Liz Bell

Power play over CEO’s contract Keith Platt keith@mpnews.com.au A POWER struggle has developed between one of Mornington Peninsula Shire’s newly-elected councillors and its CEO Carl Cowie. Although Mornington Peninsula Shire’s CEO is the only officer directly hired by councillors, Cr David Gill says he is being denied access by Mr Cowie to the contract under which he operates. Cr Gill says he asked Mr Cowie – who is paid more than $380,000 a year – for a copy of his work contract “because Carl has made it clear that the shire councillors employ him and he employs the rest of our shire staff”. “However, the answer to me [for his contract] was no.”

MORNINGTON Peninsula Shire CEO Carl Cowie at this week’s Australia Day ceremony. Picture: Yanni

Cr Gill also wants to know what KPIs (key performance indicators) are being used to measure Mr Cowie’s performance.

Elected to represent Red Hill ward last October, Cr Gill believes eight former councillors and three sitting councillors have copies of the CEO’s contract “and I can’t see why the new councillors don’t”. “He’s the one who’s made a song and dance about us [councillors] employing him and no one else. “We employ him and we should all have the contract.” Cr Gill told The News that a councillor/staff relations policy “confirms that councillors even talking to staff is controlled by [Mr Cowie]”. A page of the “Councillor and staff interactions policy” seen by The News limits the number of staff as “points of contact to councillors” to 12, including Mr Cowie, the chief financial officer, chief operating officer, communica-

tions and media manager and governance manager. Apart from the 12 officers listed in the policy, staff are told to “refer the matter to your manager” if contacted by a councillor. The policy states that it is aimed at “ensuring that risks associated with improper or undue influence are mitigated”. It “defines potential, perceived and actual improper or undue influence or direction by councillors of staff”. “I figure that democratically elected local government councillors should have access to the work contract of the one officer that we employ on behalf of our community,” Cr Gill said. “The next time we hear about council transparency and accountability perhaps it would be fair to reach for a

grain of salt.” Although only positions are named, the salaries of the shire’s top executives are listed close to the end of voluminous the 2015/16 annual report. A table of “responsible officers” lists one person as earning $380,000 - $389,999. Earlier in the annual report the Councillor Code of Conduct (adopted 6 June 2016) is described as providing “a framework for ethical and professional behaviour of councillors in the range of interactions between councillors, council staff and the public”. There are no rules controlling councillors speaking to the media. Councillors will review the code of conduct in coming months. The shire did not respond by deadline.

Rescuer ‘humbled’ by award

Paralympian awarded

Liz Bell liz@mpnews.com.au

ROSEBUD resident Heath Davidson was awarded an OAM for service to sport as a gold medallist at the 2016 Paralympic Games at Rio. Davidson, 29, contracted the virus transverse myelitis at five months, but it wasn’t long before he showed what a fighting spirit and a love of sport could do for someone in a wheelchair. In 2001, at the Australian Disabled Games in Queensland, won a bronze medal in wheelchair tennis and two silver medals for table tennis. In 2016, after a brief break from the sport, he returned to wheelchair tennis and teamed with Dylan Alcott to win the prestigious BNP Paribas World Team Cup held in Tokyo, Japan. That year he also shared Tennis Australia’s ‘Most Outstanding Athlete with a Disability’ with Alcott. SORRENTO’S Andrew Niven Creek was awarded an OAM for service to business, particularly to the domestic gas industry. HMAS Cerberus warrant officer Brendan Woodsell, now based in WA, received an OAM for meritorious devotion to duty in the field of Navy values reform and training for recruits at HMAS Cerberus. Warrant Officer Woodsell was nominated for showing “ outstanding devotion” to duty and supporting and mentoring young naval recruits. Warrant officer Woodsell was recognised for having the “drive and leadership” that has directly increased trainee retention and his sporting club support and charity work that has enhanced the Navy’s reputation in Victoria.

Garry Moncrieff was awarded an Emergency Service Medal for his promotion of water safety and his volunteer search and rescue efforts. Picture: Yanni

Bo GOL ok F A $3 in F 0 gs TE Es R 3 se PM nt ia l

WHEN quietly-spoken Hastings builder Garry Moncrieff found out he was one 12 Victorian emergency service workers to make the 2017 Australia Day Honours List, his immediate feelings were of being “embarrassed” and humbled. Embarrassed, because anyone who knows Mr Moncrieff, also knows that he volunteers for the Hastings and Mornington Volunteer Marine Rescue (VMR) out of a sense of commitment to the community, and humbled because he is not one to blow his own trumpet. Few would argue that 36 years of unwavering commitment to the rescue service is worthy of recognition. Mr Moncrieff was a founding member of the Westernport Safety Council (WSC)i in the early 1980s which later became Westernport Marine Rescue (WMR), which in turn was taken over by Volunteer Marine Rescue (VMR) Mornington in 2006. His time with the service has seen him work tirelessly in the areas of training, community education and emergency management, while also being heavily involved in search and rescue efforts for anyone in need of help on the bay, day or night. He has been instrumental in spreading the water safety message in the community, raising money and mentoring young people so that they can learn the skills necessary to keep the search and rescue service going. For Mr Moncrieff, the volunteer

rescuers he works beside are all part of “one big family”, and the satisfaction of helping people and being part of the VMR team are all the thanks he needs. There have been call-outs at 3am, on his wife's birthday and on many a Sunday night, when all most people want to do is have a quiet night in. “To tell you the truth, this I'm finding very embarrassing and all I really want to do is go out and be there to help,” he said. There are dozens of people who are glad he does and some who probably owe their lives - or at least their safe return to harbour - to Mr Moncrieff and his team at VMR over the years. While he also works full time running his own building company, the busy 58-year-old father of three is still available seven days a week, and can’t see any reason to slow down while he's still fit and healthy. “I can't really see myself not being involved in marine search and rescue, but one day I might cut back a bit.” In acknowledging the emergency service medal recipients, emergency services minister James Merlino said he was “proud” to see that their dedication to protecting Victorians was being rewarded through the nation's highest honours system. “On behalf of the Victorian Government and indeed all Victorians, I congratulate every one of these twelve medal recipients for this welldeserved recognition.”

Hastings will have role in hydrogen gas plans A PILOT project to produce hydrogen from brown coal will require the gas to be liquefied near Hastings before being shipped to Japan. Kawasaki Heavy Industries says it will release more details of the project “in the first quarter of 2017 for consideration and consultation”. The company says it has been “exploring the opportunity” to create a hydrogen energy supply chain from Australia to Japan for more than six. During that time discussions had been held with state and federal governments, industry and research organisations. “The initiative is well known,” general manager of Kawasaki’s hydrogen development centre, Dr Eiichi Harada, said in a statement issued by consultants, GHD Australia. Mr Harada said Kawasaki “is not and has never been involved in plans to process coal at Western Port”. Flinders MP Greg Hunt, who was environment minister during the time that Kawasaki was in high level government discussions about its brown coal to liquid hydrogen project, last week repeated that he was opposed to any “reindustrialisation” of Crib Point but would not rule out a coal gasification plant at Hastings (“Secret deal for toxic plant - MP” The News 24/1/17).

Mr Hunt said he was “utterly opposed” to Western Port being used as a coal port, adding “I have made it clear that Crib Point should not be reindustrialised for hydrogen or bitumen”. However, the proposal would involve hydrogen, not coal, being exported from Hastings. Mr Hunt said he knew of discussions between the state and Kawasaki but “as far as I am aware, at this stage no decisions have been made as to the port they will use”. Acting Resources Minister Philip Dalidakis said the state government “has been working with Kawasaki Heavy Industries and the Commonwealth on an engineering study to investigate the possible production of hydrogen from brown coal”. “This project is in the very early stages and we are keen to explore all serious investments that have the potential to create much needed jobs in the Latrobe Valley.” Hastings MP Neale Burgess last week said Kawasaki Heavy Industries has signed a “secret deal” with the state government that could lead to “long coal trains or a coal slurry pipe bringing huge amounts of coal to Hastings, building of a huge coal gasification plant at Hastings and the produced hydrogen being shipped through Western Port”. Mr Burgess’s opposition to the plant being located at Hastings or anywhere in Western Port contrasts with that of

his federal Liberal colleague, Mr Hunt. “Western Port is not the appropriate place to ship coal to, whether via long coal trains, slurry pipe or any other means, or to develop a huge gasification plant for turning that coal into hydrogen.” It is understood Kawasaki is already building a ship to transport liquid hydrogen which would initially be produced at a pilot plant in the Latrobe Valley. If proved viable, a much larger plant would be built at Hastings. Environmentalists argue that the process adds to Australia’s carbon emissions while Japan gets the benefit of a much cleaner fuel. Many of Mr Burgess’s concerns are echoed by Jenny Warfe, of the Blue Wedges environmental action group. “Although representatives from the Australian Maritime Safety Authority and Japan’s transport ministry signed an agreement in Canberra, the public has been kept well in the dark about the ‘initiative’. As far as I can ascertain, there has been no public consultation about Hastings and Western Port being the unlucky recipient of an industry - or at the very least the likely shipping hub - for a fuel responsible for some of the most horrendous incidents on the planet and loss of human life. Are we mad?” Ms Warfe described brown coal as “the dirtiest coal on the planet”. See Letters Page 14

Mansion for $30m plus THE 63 hectare Morning Star Estate in Mt Eliza is on sale for the second time in 30 years. The Sunnyside Rd property comes with a mansion (pictured) built in 1867, restaurant, cellar door, wedding, function and conference facilities and a 20-room hotel. As well as having development plans in place for a 72-room hotel, it has gardens featuring about 75,000 rose bushes, a 12ha vineyard of pinot, chardonnay and cabernet grapes, orchard, olive grove and grazing paddocks. It has been put on the market by long-time owner Judy Barrett. Sunnyside is being offered through an expression-of-interest campaign in

the $30 million-plus range. Adjacent property Moondah Estate was sold by the University of Melbourne to retirement living provider Ryman Healthcare for $37 million in September 2016. The 8.9-hectare property with 200 metres of beachfront had covenants which restricted its use to aged care, education, religious or primary production. The 42-room mansion and outbuildings was formerly known as the Australian Administrative Staff College. It has a gatehouse, servants’ quarters, conference, training, meeting and office spaces and four dining areas. On the property is a vineyard and 95-bed student accommodation wing.

Honour for work at Shrine BLAIRGOWRIE resident Denis Baguley. right, will be a familiar name to many in Greater Melbourne for his contributions to the revival of the Shrine of Remembrance. The former Melburnian, who moved to the Mornington Peninsula after retiring a couple of years ago, received an AM in the Australia Day Awards for his service to public administration in Victoria through infrastructure project management, and to veterans and their families. As chief executive officer of the Shrine 2000-2015, and project manager, 2000-2003, Mr Baguley was instrumental in many of the changes in policy, programs and public access that saw the number of visitors to the Shrine grow from 270,000 to one million a year. “Our intention when we started making changes at the Shrine back in 2000 was to bring it into the 21st Century, and I believe that we achieved that,” he said. During his time, about $70 million was spent on the building and its programs, to make it more accessible and modern. Mr Baguley’s background in project and centre management led to him being chosen for the job of reinvigorating the Shrine, and working closely with volunteers, veterans, architects, landscapers and other stakeholders to get the job completed. “I’m honoured to receive this award and I was incredibly honoured to be nominated,” he said. “Over the many years I spent at the Shrine, I have met and worked with many veterans and volunteers

It wasn’t hearing loss, it was just earwax!

and their families, and that is very humbling. “They sacrificed a lot and we should be doing the very best for these people.” Mr Baguley now spends his time as a retiree on the peninsula, but is not by any means keeping a low profile. His involvement with the Southern Peninsula Rescue Squad, where he volunteers as secretary, allows him to draw on his skills in finance and resource management. “I’m just proudly offering a secre-

tarial role at the squad, which does great work on the peninsula.” Before being head hunted for the Shrine position, Mr Baguley was the director of property and commercial development, Victorian Department of Infrastructure, and project manager, at the former Spencer St Station Authority. He had various roles with the commonwealth department of administrative services, 1970-1997, and with Price Waterhouse Coopers, 2000. Liz Bell

Volunteer to bank on ONE of the Mornington Peninsula’s busiest volunteers and community contributors has been recognised with the inaugural ‘Lifetime Achievement Award’ in the shire’s Australia Day awards. Barry Irving, right received the honour after more than 50 years of volunteer work. He has worked with the Salvation Army Boys Legion as a leader, helped with the Inaugural Nippers project at Gunnamatta Life Saving Club, been a crewman for Southern Peninsula Rescue Squad, elected president three times for the Rye Rotary Club, cooks for the police on New Year’s Eve, and has dressed as Santa to raise money for Cotton Wool Babies, as well as for Rosebud Community Chamber of Commerce. A regular contributor to The News and keen photographer, Mr Irving spends a lot of time providing free publicity and marketing for sporting and community groups to lift their profiles in the community. Mr Irving, who flies to Cambodia with other volunteers next month to help build a toilet for a Cambodian school, said he is involved in many different causes, all of which are close to his heart. But one he is particularly passionate about is the Community Bank, which now has branches in Rye, Dromana and Rosebud. Appointed to the board in 2002, and continuing as a director, Mr Irving has helped oversee donations of around $6 million to community groups over 15 years. Last year the bank, which runs on banking business model that is not shareholder driven, donated $250,000 to the Cloverleaf Foundation to help disabled people on the peninsula find suitable accommodation.

But even with so many volunteer projects on the go, the retiree was still “humbled” and honoured by the award. “I was very surprised and very humbled by this award,” Mr Irving said. “I think it is fantastic that the shire is recognising and appreciating and awarding volunteers as a whole, and it is an honour to be one of them.” Liz Bell

Battle of the bulge on way back to the top Stephen Taylor steve@mpnews.com.au A RYE boxer who had success as an amateur in the middleweight ranks and then let his weight balloon to 130kg before returning to the ring as a professional and rising to be among the top 20 fighters in the world has completed a remarkable turnaround. Jayde Mitchell, 31, will defend his professional WBC-OPBF super middleweight title in Melbourne in March and looks forward to a possible worldtitle shot next year. As confirmation of his success he has been nominated for 2016 Australian Boxer of the Year after a stellar year in which he won six fights in Australia and overseas. “It’s awesome to be acknowledged alongside so many talented and deserving fighters across Australia,” he said. Mitchell was “brought up on boxing” and grew up idolising heavyweight champ Mike Tyson and Rocky Balboa of the Rocky series. “All I ever dreamt of was being a full-time professional champion boxer and, while I enjoyed fighting as an amateur and winning the Victorian and Australian championships, I couldn’t give it 100 per cent,” he said. Running his own concreting business full time brought its own distractions and in 2011 Mitchell – despite a credible 47-8 record as an amateur – gave the sport away for three-and-ahalf years. That’s when his weight blew out and Mitchell’s life took an oblique

turn for the worse. “I watched on while other guys achieved bigger things but I wasn’t enjoying it,” he said. “In mid-2014 I decided to come back as a professional and get back into the game.” That meant “training the house down”, eating the right foods and refocusing his thoughts – as well as shedding almost half his body weight back to his fighting weight of 76kg. “A lot of blood, sweat, and tears were put into getting me back into condition to the point where I could step between the ropes once again and give the pro ranks a real crack,” he said. It worked to a degree – with Mitchell still working as a full-time concreter winning the Victorian and regional super middle-weight titles in 2015. But the rigors of running his business and family life, along with persistent injuries, made the going tough in the ring. “I had a decent business and nice home and a lovely wife but I knew something had to give,” he said. The catalyst was a shock loss to opponent Ryan Breese in a Malvern town hall super middleweight bout in December 2015. “I was carrying injuries and had to push through the pain barrier but lost a disputed points decision in a fight I should never have lost,” he said. “I thought: That’s it. I’ve got to either give it all or give it away. “I spoke to [wife] Tegan and decided to get rid of the business and sell the house to fund a full time professional career.

Success has followed, with Mitchell claiming “the biggest win” of his career in October: the WBA Oceania super middleweight title against the previously undefeated Shintaro Matsumoto in Tokyo. His 10th round TKO was at the same venue as Lionel Rose claimed his world bantam belt title against Fighting Harada in 1968. Other 2016 highlights were beating veteran Nader Hamdan in July and Chilean Arnoldo Poblete in November, with both super middle weight fights held at the Melbourne Pavilion. His fights are well attended by peninsula residents, with up to 250 local fans travelling to inner-city venues to watch him compete. Trained by father Len at The Training Ground, Rosebud, as well as AAMI Stadium, Mitchell is confident of cementing his place in the super middleweight top 10 and be in the hunt for a world title shot next year. Working out at the home base of Melbourne Storm and Melbourne Victory is a recipe for boxing success: “It’s an awesome facility and everything I ever dreamt of.” Mitchell will defend his WBCOPBF super middleweight title on Saturday 18 March at the Melbourne Park Function Centre’s Punches At The Park 3. He will be headlining alongside Hosking Promotions’ Quamil Balla although his opponent is not known at this stage. Ring of confidence: Jayde Mitchell after his win against Shintaro Matsumoto in Tokyo last October.

Prepare for grassfire If you live in a suburb near grasslands, you’re at risk of fire. If you live directly next to parks or paddocks and a grassfire starts, walk at least two streets back. If you live two or more streets away, stay where you are, grassfires are unlikely to spread into built up areas. Stay alert and monitor conditions. Don’t drive, visibility may be poor, accidents are likely, and you could block emergency services.

Bowlers celebrate national day DESPITE the cloudy weather, Australia Day activities at Sorrento Bowls Club attracted about 350 people. Australia Day ambassador and Mt Martha resident Sue Stanley performed the flag raising duties and the national anthem was sung by Southern Peninsula Singers. The club’s Judith Mordech said Ms Stanley challenged members to do some limbering up exercises and even offered to demonstrate a onearm push up for $100. This was quickly raised and donated back to the club.

Children’s games included colouring competitions, play dough, hopping and egg-and-spoon races around the greens. Members ate freshly baked scones, lamingtons from Allison Monkhouse Funerals, and sausages. There was a book stall and raffles with prizes donated by many of the peninsula’s top tourist attractions. The free event is sponsored by Mornington Peninsula Shire and Nepean Optical, Rye. “It’s a relaxing way to celebrate our national day while enjoying barefoot bowls, which is a popular activity for all ages,” Ms Mordech said.

Shire ready to fence off major tourist drawcard Continued from Page 1 “Unless we have a ban it will not stop people climbing up from the water and doing the same damage. It’s a waste of money,” Cr Gill said. The council has been in a tight corner as it seeks to balance resident outrage at the swamping of their streets with illegally parked cars, litter, vandalism, cliff erosion and, often, aggressive youngsters from other suburbs, with its pledge to promote tourism to the natural attractions of the foreshore between Ellerina and Bay roads. Tired of carrying the can, it has now determined on a fall-back position: If the shire does not receive support from DELWP for the fencing, it will hand back its coastal management responsibility for the foreshore to the state government. Cr Antonella Celi, who moved the fence plan, later said the council had always encouraged visitors to the foreshore but that “it got out of hand” at the Pillars. “We have always wanted to promote tourism and we have done that; we have encouraged them here. “There are other places on the Mornington Peninsula and now it’s a matter of dispersing people from the one place.” Cr Celi said it was beyond the council’s powers to ban people from the site – which is a coastal reserve – but that total prohibition would give compliance officers the right to fine illegal visitors. The council would work to restore the site’s heritage values, she said. “We have always been aware of the heritage concerns at the Pillars and will work to protect the natural environment there.” The mayor Cr Bev Colomb confirmed the shire wanted to encourage visits to the peninsula’s coastline and hinterland, but that the Pillars had become an “unwanted attraction to many residents and the shire has sought to take action”. “We are committed to protecting the Pillars from the high level of pedestrian activity that is causing damage and erosion to one of our Abo-

riginal cultural heritage site,” she said. “Cultural heritage sites are extremely important to the shire, the Aboriginal community and local residents and we are determined to preserve this beautiful landmark.” She said injuries to young thrill seekers had required attendance by emergency services personnel and a rescue by the air ambulance. “There are also significant resources required to manage the issues, including regular patrols by Victoria Police and shire rangers, litter collection and shire officers responding to resident concerns,” Cr Colomb said. “Many steps have been taken to limit visitation,

particularly over the summer months, including installation of cliff warning signage, parking restrictions, bollards placed in strategic locations along the Esplanade and regular patrols by shire rangers and Victoria Police,” she said. “Despite these measures, local residents have still raised concerns in relation to litter, environmental impact, illegal parking and anti-social and offensive behaviour.” Mt Martha Resident Action Group members are relieved that “finally some action will be taken, but also disappointed that it had to come to this”. A member who asked not to be named, said the

fence was not an ideal outcome for the local community “because locals will no longer be able to visit the Pillars”. “A small minority has ruined it for everyone else, and the sheer number of people visiting the site is totally unsustainable in a residential neighbourhood with no parking and no facilities for visitors.” The group says fencing off the site is the only viable short-term option until a longer-term solution is found. He said preserving Aboriginal cultural heritage was a legitimate justification for the fence and “the only means council has to put a halt to the blatant disregard many visitors have for our coastline and local amenity”. Mt Martha Resident Action Group says a path and boardwalk from Mt Martha to the Pillars and, eventually, Safety Beach, would provide safe access to the coast for pedestrians and cyclists. The group believes a feasibility study should be done so that in a few years the Pillars can be properly managed and safely enjoyed by locals and visitors, with parking in designated areas and not local streets. Mornington MP David Morris said the council had “done the right thing” in voting to fence the Pillars. He said the council had tried hard to work with the state government only to be ignored. “I raised the issue twice in Parliament in 2016, most recently in early September, in the hope of getting some action prior to the warmer weather,” he said. “Unfortunately, the only response was a letter from Environment Minister [Lily D’Ambrosio] saying the problem was one for VicRoads – in other words ‘not my problem’. “[Yet] just 10 days before – on 25 October – she had announcing funding for risk mitigation at the Pillars.” Mr Morris said the government had left the council to do the heavy lifting. “Meanwhile the local community, and our local council, is left to try and clean up the mess.”

Liberals being hypocritical over gas plant for Hastings The article “Secret deal for toxic plant – MP” (The News 24/1/17) details attacks on the Andrews state government by state and federal Liberal MPs, Neale Burgess and Greg Hunt, over a “secret plan” to bring brown coal from the Latrobe Valley, to a proposed [hydrogen] gasification plant at Hastings for shipment to Japan. Their concern for Hastings and its international Ramsar environment treaty protected surrounds would be commendable, if it was not so hypocritical. Given Mr Burgess and the Liberals continue to advocate for a massive container port at Hastings, perhaps they would care to explain how 6000 container ships a year and dredging 24 million cubic metres from the seabed is a better future for Western Port than the “secret coal plant”. Expanding the port will have a devastating impact on the $2 billion a year input into the Western Port economy from tourism, recreational fishing and agriculture. I am sure Mr Burgess is aware parts of his electorate are already under threat of inundation and erosion, without the impact of faster running tides caused by dredging for the container port. Western Port is far too fragile for any kind of expanded industrial development. It was [Flinders MP] Greg Hunt as Environment Minister, who signed an agreement handing over all his federal environment powers on Western Port to then Planning Minister, Matthew Guy. That agreement restricted objections to expanding the port of Hastings. It was the Liberal’s Port of Hastings Development Authority that would not release the “incomplete” dredging studies funded out of the $110 million of government money allocated to “prove the Port”. While I am sure a public meeting on any coal project would be welcomed, methinks these “pollies” should have by now got the “leave Western Port alone” message. All statistical and report references are available at www.preservewesternport.org.au/news/ Kevin Chambers, The Gurdies

No subsidy for hydrogen It seems yet again a multinational company is fishing for subsidies to make a buck on the back of Australian taxpayers. Kawasaki Heavy Industries is proposing and talking to our state government about a coal to hydrogen processing plant, using Latrobe Valley’s dirty brown coal. The spruikers of CCS (carbon capture and storage), are telling us that the process is safe and affordable, especially if the state and federal governments would just subsidise it. Hastings could be the lucky place where a full-scale processing plant could be located with Kawasaki’s ships picking up the liquefied hydrogen and taking it to Japan. If this energy production is so viable, without burdening Australia with an even greater carbon footprint than we have now, let Kawasaki take

the risk and the consequences of something not going to plan. And make them pay a very large environmental bond to make sure the Victorian and Australian taxpayers are not left cleaning up a mess produced by yet another mining venture gone wrong. Strict environmental monitoring and guidelines would also need to be in place so the stored CO2 is not entering the atmosphere again some years down the line. Rupert Steiner, Balnarring Beach

Act now on climate In one of his final speeches [US President] Barrack Obama made the following statement: “without bolder action our children will not have time to debate the existence of climate change”. He could have been talking about Australia. Our climate scientists have agreed with the world body that 2016 was the hottest on record for the third year running when the world atmospheric temperature rose by 1.1 degrees centigrade. If this situation should continue the world will be in serious trouble in just a few years. Sun, wind, wave generated renewable energy supplies, even with the most recent battery technology, cannot provide enough power to produce many metals, drive large trucks, run trains, trams or aircraft. It is only a matter of time before oil and gas supplies will become scarce and extremely expensive. This month news that a sawmill could close down in Gippsland because of the lack of timber is a warning. Planning for such situations should have started at least 20 to 40 years ago. Our federal and state governments have been incapable of planning for the future. Few, if any, politicians employ staff with any scientific training. Ministers come and go, each with their own ideas. Again, there is little or no long term policies. Australia can, because of its size, have little effect on world temperatures. However, we can demonstrate, by example, and put in place policies on water, renewable resources and food for our future generations by refusing to contribute to waste and greed.

Responsible cycling David Howard says he pays rates and taxes (“Move motorists” Letters 24/1/17) but doesn’t mention motor registration fees which entitle a motorist to travel on any public road he or she chooses. That registration fee does not cover push bikes even though cyclists may own a car. Why should the Esplanade, one of the scenic roads of the Mornington Peninsula, or any other road, be off limits just to satisfy cyclists who don’t seem to be bothered about creating a safety hazard. While we’re talking about inappropriate areas for cyclists to be, let’s mention the Bay Trail in Rosebud. These Lycra-clad kamikaze pilots come speeding through, regardless that the said trail is also for pedestrians, as though Gargantua is hot on their tail. Perhaps I should call these people “whispering death”, Kamikaze means “divine wind”, which is what I pass when a bike silently whizzes by unannounced. Obviously a bell is an optional extra as it probably will create wind drag that will slow them down in their time trial. John Cain, McCrae

Green agri-wedge

Peace returns, for now

I refer to comments made by Rupert Steiner (“Broken rules” Letters 17/1/17) in relation to the amendment of an existing permit by Mornington Peninsula Shire Council to the Willow Creek winery. Mr Steiner, like all of us, is passionate about preserving what we love about the peninsula and the Willow Creek development is evidence we can sensibly support agriculture and tourism together to ensure our green wedge properties are commercially viable and sustainable well into the future. That is, green wedge (aka agriculture) and tourism can and must have co-existent successful outcomes. Sustainable growth in our tourism

Am I sad? Of course I’m sad, in fact shattered. Another Australia Day over, the departure of our hordes, the Rye carnival and those screaming females, the raging motor bikes, the purring jet skis, the crackers, and never forgetting Jason Coleman’s world class cabaret with the incredible international cast. So quiet. A lull. Waiting patiently for their return. Easter can’t come quick enough. Travel safely my friends. Sadly missed. More importantly, there’s still time to give a shilling to my second home when trouble knocks: www.rosebudhospitalsummerappeal. org.au Cliff Ellen, Rye

industry has been from agri-tourism and, driven by a dramatic increase in awareness of our wonderful produce and agri experiences from Melbournians and overseas visitors who seek an on-farm experience and, where possible, enjoy international standard accommodation and food. Willow Creek is not a new development and while modification of the existing permit will not trash our green wedge as suggested by Mr Steiner, I do agree that we need council to address anomalies in the green wedge zone to ensure genuine agricultural and agri-tourism operations are easier to establish. There are many properties well under 40 hectares which could easily and appropriately sustain an agri-tourism facility to ensure that more people understand the importance of zones such as this. While less than 10 per cent of peninsula tourism accommodation is in the green wedge zone, we could do with some more agri-tourism attractions to help even out seasonal visitation, instead of seeing it dry up over winter. This will then create jobs and genuine career opportunities for our local communities, many of which are already struggling with unemployment and long term welfare dependency. I urge Mr Steiner to drop the inflammatory partisan rhetoric and be part of a community driven solution. Martin Dixon, MP Member for Nepean

NEWS DESK Climate change ‘will affect peninsula life’ MOST respondents to a Peninsula Speaks online survey believe that man-made climate change is real and that it will affect life on the Mornington Peninsula. “Although Mornington Peninsula Shire is to be congratulated on its recently announced roof top solar initiative on shire owned and operated buildings, 64 per cent of people believe that the shire should be placing more emphasis on climate change,” organiser Peter Avery said. “While support for renewable wind initiatives appears to be marginal at 58 per cent, renewable wave technology is supported by 71 per cent and an overwhelming 93 per cent would support solar initiatives.” The shire lists one of its “values” as having a “whole of government response to climate change mitigation and adaption”. It has been estimated that fitting solar panels to 34 shire-owned buildings will save $33,000 in power bills and see CO2-e gas emissions cut by 268 tonnes. The first round of survey results released by Peninsula Speaks earlier this month showed that a majority of respondents felt that beaches, “country feel”, absence of high rise development, public open spaces and nature reserves topped the list when it comes to what makes the peninsula a “special” place to live. Peninsula Speaks, a self-described community advocacy organisation, hopes the feedback from its “Looking Forward – Mornington Peninsula 2030” survey taken in the latter part of 2016 will be used by planners. Headed by Mr Avery and Christine Haydon, the organisation says results of its ongoing “independent online research … on a broad range of topics” will be made available to federal and state governments and the shire to help shape the peninsula’s future “allowing for population growth, managed development and climate change”. Data from the survey is being compiled by Frankston-based Market Metrics, a firm specialising in fieldwork, logistics and data analysis.

There’s no way eggs, or kids, can beat the heat MORNINGTON Peninsula residents have received an illustration of the danger of leaving kids, pets – and even eggs – in their cars on hot days. Rye Fire Brigade received a photo from a visiting Queenslander who left a dozen eggs on the backseat of her Holden SVZ for an hour. Temperatures soared to more than 30 degrees and, when the woman returned to her car, she found the eggs cooking away on the backseat. The brigade’s Kelly Stoner said it was amazing how quickly the eggs had cooked in the car, which had tinted windows. “The temperature inside would need to be at least 75 degrees for an egg yolk to cook that quickly,” Mr Stoner said. With the mercury set to climb into the high 30s again this week, the eggs are a reminder never to leave kids or pets inside a parked car on hot days. “The consequences if that were a child or animal in there are unimaginable,” Mr Stoner said. Rye Fire Brigade has worked closely with RACV to respond to lots of incidents where kids have been locked in cars. “We have heaps of tourists and traffic down this way over summer. “Most of the time it’s accidental with people rushing and parking at the beach, and somewhere along the way the kids and keys get locked in the car. “People just need to be very careful over summer, and keep their keys on them at all times.”

Ambulance Victoria figures show paramedics received 1623 calls last year about kids being left in cars. “The risk of heatstroke and dehydration is real,” a spokesperson said. “Within minutes the temperature inside a parked car can be 20-30 degrees warmer than outside. “It may surprise people that leaving the windows down slightly has little effect on the inside temperature. Also, large cars heat up just as fast as smaller ones.” People who leave children unattended in a car face fines of nearly $4000 or up to six months jail. But it’s not only our kids who are at risk – pets too suffer if they are left in the car. The RSPCA’s recent Dogs Die in Hot Cars Campaign highlights the fact that pets – particularly dogs – can overheat even when the windows are down or the car is in the shade. If you see a child or pet left in a parked car on a hot day, call 000. Details: visit kidsafevic.com.au. Hot spot: The Queensland visitor found her eggs cooking away on the back seat.

Police call ‘time out’ for revellers A “CONCENTRATED group” of about a dozen Australia Day revellers caused headaches for police at Mornington on Thursday 26 January. Acting Senior Sergeant Chris Stock, of Mornington police, said celebrations by about 10,000 people in Main St and surrounding streets was marred by the misbehaviour of

this small group. He said a large contingent of police soon made its presence felt and five drunks – mainly teenagers and under-age drinkers – were locked up at 1am after rowdy behaviour in Merchant Lane. They spent four hours in the cells and were released later that morning after being handed $622 infringement notices.

“They had been drinking and the sooner we arrived to take care of them the better,” he said. “There’s always the propensity for things to get out of hand if we don’t nip things in the bud.” Sergeant Stock said the fact that there were no reported assaults made it a “good day at the office” for police.

Support for ‘ice families’ Liz Bell liz@mpnews.com.au GROWING concern over ice-related domestic violence and child abuse in Frankston and the Mornington Peninsula has led to calls for more support for families struggling with the consequences of drug abuse. Police and counsellors report that ice use is devastating families and is now the leading cause of crime and domestic violence in both areas. Detective Sergeant Detective Sergeant Paul Busuttil of Frankston CIU said ice was destroying communities, with police making weekly referrals to the Department of Human Services about children in “ice families”, and directing parents or partners to services to help them deal with the destructive behaviour of ice users. “As police, we have the psychological training and are better skilled to deal with these confronting things, but we see families who are desperate for help,” he said. He said there was a growing demand for affordable support services. Detective Sergeant John Coburn at Mornington Peninsula CIU said the peninsula was experiencing the same issues as Frankston, with the problem affecting families across all socio-economic areas. The developer of the ‘BreakThrough’ ice education program for families, Angela Ireland, said a program she ran in Rosebud last year revealed many desperate families left to deal with the destructive behaviour of

a family member taking ice. “I’ve seen families torn apart, scared of how to deal with it and where to turn, and often making things worse by responding in a way that escalates things,” she said. Ms Ireland said she had seen ice use disrupt all family members, including parents who are intimidated by their drug-using children, siblings who are left to deal with the dysfunction, and grandparents who are left to take over care of the grandchildren. Ms Ireland will run more programs at community centres across the peninsula in February and March in response to the demand in the region. She said the free programs are designed to help the families and friends of ice users manage their challenging behaviours and develop strategies to support those impacted by ice use. “Sometimes, in desperate situations, people will respond or do things that may not be helpful and may even inflame situations, so the training will show how best to respond when things

do take a setback,” she said. “We show family members how to remain calm in difficult situations — to understand what is happening to the brain when someone takes ice and can by psychotic or start to hallucinate.” “This drug has such a wide-reaching consequences for families, and we see people who are unprepared and unskilled to cope with the consequences of family members who use ice.” Ms Ireland said the programs, funded by the state government and presented by the Bouverie Institute, Turning Point and Self Help Addiction Resource Centre, included follow-up contact to provide ongoing support for families. There will be five BreakThrough evenings sessions for families at Sorrento (15 February), Dromana (16 February), Rye (23 February), Crib Point (1 and 8 February) and Mornington (9 March), and a one-day session at Rye for “frontline” workers. To register see turningpoint.org.au or call 1300 660 068.

Water quality still a concern BEACHGOERS and swimmers are still being urged to check water quality updates before going for a dip off bayside beaches this summer amid risks of illness from bacteria and faecal matter swept into Port Phillip Bay during stormy weather. Water quality is being monitored daily by the Environment Protection Authority until March. Earlier this month EPA applied sciences group manager Dr Anthony Boxshall said there is a higher risk of illnesses such as gastro to swimmers from higher bacterial levels after flash flooding. “Heavy rain and storms can create a risk to the public as they can flood stormwater systems that then carry pollution that has built up in drains into waterways,” Dr Boxshall said in a statement.

“In certain conditions, they can be home to bacteria from faecal pollution that poses health risks to swimmers.” The EPA issues twice-daily water quality updates of good, fair and poor for Port Phillip’s 36 beaches. It is not advisable to swim at all waterways and beaches for up to 48 hours after heavy rain since there may be a higher risk of gastro and other illnesses. Water quality information is also displayed on signs at Life Saving Victoria clubs around the bay. The water quality forecasts can be seen online at epa.vic.gov.au and via twitter @EPA_Victoria or by calling 1300 372 842. Text message alerts can be signed up for at yarraandbay.vic.gov.au online.

WHAT’S NEW...

Drivers make all the difference WE often underestimate how important the ability to travel is to a person’s quality of life. For most people the ability to drive a car, catch a train or order a taxi isn’t given a second thought. But for those who experience transport disadvantage, the inability to get around may leave them feeling disempowered, isolated and unable to access basic services. That’s why Peninsula Transport Assist (PTA) was created five years ago, and helps clients from as young as 11 years of age to nearly 100. With the increase in clients and constant enquiries for more services every day, the team at PTA are looking for new volunteers to help combat the transport disadvantage on the Mornington Peninsula. Manager PTA, Clemens Unger, says volunteer drivers are needed for a number of reasons. “We want to recruit drivers for everything from taking people to doctor’s appointments to shopping and hairdressing, whatever they need,” said Mr Unger. “Peninsula Transport Assist is like sleeping beauty; we do a lot of good things but people often hear about us by accident, and a lot of word of mouth. We currently have a pool of around 60 volunteers which are people who use their own cars to drive clients to their appointments. However, we also have a small mini bus service which we need a driver for.” Currently the PTA has close to 300 clients from Portsea to Carrum Downs and receive daily enquires from people wanting to sign up for the service. “This puts a lot of pressure on our current driver pool so we are recruiting new volunteers at the moment,” said Mr Unger. “Skills our volunteers learn include safer driving techniques and minibus handling, techniques for assisting clients with varying degrees of mobility, risk management techniques, volunteer rights and responsibilities. In addition to driving, our volunteers also provide support to the clients once they reach their destination. This may include waiting for the client during appointments or attending social events with them. In this way our volunteers can act both as drivers and an alternative to paid carers.” To find out more about Peninsula Transport Assist or become a volunteer, contact the office via email peninsulatransportassist@gmail.com or phone 9708 8241. www.peninsulatransportassist.org

Transport Assist is an innovative vehicle and volunteer sharing network that pools community resources together. By enabling community organisations to drive further for cheaper, we help combat transport disadvantage throughout the Frankston and Mornington Peninsula region.

Peninsula Transport Assist provides: • Volunteer assisted transport for residents to access medical appointments and other essential services • Community bus hire

• Bus drivers available

LOOKING FOR VOLUNTEER DRIVERS AND VOLUNTEER BUS DRIVERS *Reimbursement available toward car expenses, with own vehicle use.

The Network helps community organisations with their transport needs through 4 key programs:

New recruits on the way to fight fires EIGHT Patterson River Fire Station recruits are among 30 graduates to become career firefighters with the Country Fire Authority. They started at the station in December and took part this month in a training program at the CFA’s Bangholme depot. Two of the recruits are Adam Lutz, 40, of Keysborough, and Samantha Grant, 46, of Langwarrin. Mr Lutz was a sheet metal worker and foreman before joining the CFA. He is a keen surfer, and loves bike riding, restoring cars and spending time with his family. “I’m looking forward to change, challenge and playing a strong role in the community,” he said. Ms Grant was formerly a secondary school teacher. She’s learning to surf, and keen to get back to being a Guide Dog puppy raiser. “I want to give back to the community in a different way to spread my wings and challenge myself with a change of career,” she said. The recruits – including a record 10 women – graduated in front of family and friends at the Victorian Emergency Management Training Centre, Craigieburn. With eight women graduating from a course on 30 November, the CFA has taken on 18 women in the past two courses – the most to graduate as CFA firefighters in the one year. They will each take up placements at one of 19 fire stations around the state, working side by side with volunteers at some of CFA’s 35 integrated brigades in outer Melbourne and regional centres. CFA recruit course coordinator Christian Thorley said the celebration “marked the end of a lot of hard work and the beginning of a challenging and diverse career for these new firefighters”. “These recruits have demonstrated impec-

Adam Lutz

cable diligence and commitment to becoming firefighters throughout their training, and it was wonderful to celebrate this special day with them all,” Mr Thorley said. “The atmosphere was electric – it shows what

Samantha Grant

a great group of people these new firefighters are and signals the wonderful contributions they will make in their new communities.” The recruits will contribute towards the state government’s commitment to add 350 new

firefighters to the CFA’s ranks. The recruits come from a range of backgrounds including defence, trades, technicians, health, emergency services, education and management.

100 YEARS AGO THIS WEEK...

Mrs George Shepherd on the mend Compiled by Cameron McCullough THE many friends of Mrs George Shepherd, of Somerville, will be pleased to learn that she is again at home and slowly recovering from the painful operation which she recently underwent. *** MESSRS Brody and Mason will sell on Thursday next 8th last at “Sunnyside” Mornington Road, contents of 10 roomed villa, on account of Mrs A. S. Panter. Owing to this property having been sold, everything will be unreserved. *** A GRAND cencert in aid of the funds of the Frankston Methodist Church will be held in the Mechanics’ Hall on Wednesday evening next. We understand that a good programme is being arranged, and as there will be good moonlight, there will doubtless be a good attendance. *** IT is to be hoped that a good number of willing hands will respond to the call for volunteers to assist in clearing the Frankston cemetery of the rubbish that is so rapidly overgrowing everthing else and rendering it peculiarly liable to be swept clean by any fire that may start in the vicinity. Those willing are asked to be at the cemetery this afternoon. *** ALFRED Johnson, a foreigner, who claimed to be a Finn, and who had been making himself objectionable to the townspeople for a couple of days by stopping pedestrians and begging

money, with which he afterwards obtained liquor, was arrested a Frankston on Wednesday. He appeared before Caps Sherlock J.P, on Thursday morning on charges of offensive behaviour and vagrancy. Const Ryan informed the magistrate that Johansen was an alien with no papers to show his nationality and no passport, as required by the War Precautions Act. He had, as well as stopping people in the street, visited numerous houses, demanding money etc. At houses where no men were present the female inmates were alarmed by the prisoner, who was generally drunk. He was drunk when arrested, and on the way to the watch house he violently resisted and used atrocious language. On the first charge the prisoner, who pleaded guilty was fined 20s or 7 days imprisonment, and on the second charge he was given 14 days imprisonment. *** A SEASIDE FATALITY. - DISAPPEARANCE OF TWO BOYS. A commission of inquiry into the circumstances surrounding the disappearance of two boys named Montgomery Robinson 18, and Andrew McNeil, 17, at Carrum, on Saturday, 1st April, 1916, was held before Mr Cohen, P.M. at the City Police Court on Wednesday. Constable P. B. McDonald, Chelsea, stated that after he received news on 2nd April of the fact that the boys were missing he went to Carrum to assist in

the search, and also instructed Const Pattison to go. He could not notify the neighboring police stations as the telephones were not available on Sunday, and he considered that the other stations would be unable to do more than he was doing. He did not see the necessity for hiring a boat to search the water. Senior Const. McCormack, who was notified at Frankston of the fatality at 9am on 2nd April, said he patrolled the beaches where it was expected the boat would be washed up. He searched on Sunday and Monday. Const Pattison also gave evidence of having searched the beaches for traces of the missing boys. William Vagg farmer said that the boys asked him for a loan of the dinghy for the purpose of fishing. He assisted them to launch the boat and saw them at various times about a mile and a half from the shore. The water was perfectly calm. After dark set in Mr and Mrs Robinson came to him and asked him about the boat. He told them that the boys were alright, as the boat could not be sunk or capsized. He remained on the beach until daylight on the Sunday morning with Mr Robinson. Witness said that, in his opinion a piece of rope which was produced in court and which had been attached to the anchor of the boat, was cut and not worn away. Mr Jones: was the boat seaworthy? Witness: I would not risk my life in it unless it was.

Thomas Alexander Robinson, 35 Burnley Street Burnley, father to one of the boys, said the failure on the part of the police to conduct a proper search appeared to be due to the absence of telephonic communication on Sunday. Rachel Elizabeth Robinson, wife of the previous witness, said that she accepted the assurance of Mr Vagg, that the boat was seaworthy. Had she seen the boat before it was found on the beach she would have had grave misgivings. After other evidence had been given, the inquiry was closed. Mr Cohen will forward his report to the Governor in Council. *** Our Letter Box. TO THE EDITOR. Sir, Having spent several months in your interesting little town, may I crave space in your widly-read journal, to comment both eulogistically and critically on a certain very popular patriotic body – The Frankston “Wattle” Club. I was told this club was composed of mostly ladies, who spared neither time nor effort to entertain and cheer such of our gallant soldiers who found their way Frankstonwards, and also, managed and catered for numerous social evenings in aid of various patriotic objects. This sounded admirable and I immediately took steps to cultivate the acquaintance of the workers in what is rather a unique institute. I found the ladies worthy of all

praise, cheerful, and painstaking, most of them having more than a superficial interest in-as-much as nearly all have their nearest and dearest in the dread danger zone; so they work not only with their head and hands, but with hearts deeply stirred as only they can who have given their loved ones to risk all in our glorious cause. So much for praise. Deeply regretting the need of any adverse criticism of such an otherwise splendid movement, I must point out one serious defect. Unless I have been misinformed, sincerely do I hope I may have been, upon the committee of the “Wattle” Club there is a young man, unmarried and apparently eligible for active service. Surely, so glaring an incongruity would not be tolerated. Could the wives, sisters and sweethearts of our gallant boys, sit in friendly confab with one who could, yet would not go to their assistance. Is it not rather an insult to those heroes to even suggest such a thing. Yes, Mr Editoir, the idea is too ridiculous, My informant must certainly have been mistaken. However, as the belief is fairly general in your district, and is distinctly detrimental to the Club’s interests, pethaps I may be forgiven for thus making the rumor public and allowing these worthy ladies the opportunity of contradicting the mis-statement, if such it be. Yours faithfully, A.I F. *** From the pages of the Mornington Standard, 3 February, 1917

Brittain dominates again PROVINCIAL

By IT Gully MORNINGTON Peninsula Cricket Association star Chris Brittain singlehandedly defeated Moorooduc in Provincial cricket on Saturday after smashing an incredible 232 for Baxter. The master all-rounder hit 18 fours and 14 sixes in Baxter’s massive total of 7/416 after chasing Moorooduc’s 168. Coming into the Round 8 match, Brittain had already hit two massive back-to-back hundreds against Mornington and Crib Point. Those knocks prompted former Victorian wicketkeeper and South Australia coach Darren ‘Chuck’ Berry to say on Melbourne radio that Brittain was the best country batsman he had seen. As well as having knocks of 155 and 181 coming into this match, Brittain had also scored half-centuries against Sorrento and Langwarrin. Chris Brittain has hit an amazing 786 runs this season in eight innings, as well as snaring 21 wickets. It’s hard to remember a single player dominating with bat and ball to this degree in MPCA cricket – names like Scott Phillips and Paul Hartle spring to mind but it’s doubtful we’ve ever witnessed anything like this. His skipper at the other end, Daniel Warwick, who has also dominated this season, hit 90 runs in Baxter’s massive win. The Ducs’ used nine bowlers in an effort to remove Brittain. The prized scalp was eventually picked-up by skipper Ken Cremen. Langwarrin continues to defy the odds and notched up yet another victory on Saturday, this time against Pearcedale to claim the Bushman’s Cup. Defending 180, Matt Prosser had his best ever game with the ball for the Kangas, snatching 7/65 in 25.1 overs to play a game-changing role in helping to dismiss the Panthers for 154. Skipper Travis Campbell got his side away to a flyer and bowled sensationally to claim 2/34 from 16 overs. Kaine Smith top-scored for the visitors with an unbeaten 47 while Brad Trotter opened with 40.

Pines clip Eagles’ wings: Pines beat Somerville by 26 runs after Somerville fell short in their run chase. Picture: Rab Siddhi

Mornington made tough work of it but it was enough to get the points against Mt Eliza in a thriller. Chasing 167 for victory, Mornington picked up the winning runs with one wicket in hand. Nick Johnson with an unbeaten 25 was the key player in the victory when things got tight at the end, while Brad McDonald top scored with 46. Justin Grant was again superb with

the ball for the Mounties, claiming 5/65 from 36.2 overs. Rob Maskiell picked up 3/23 from 13. Crib Point picked up a much-needed win against Long Island, beating them outright to claim the maximum 20 points. The Magpies made 145 in reply to Long Islands 95 before rolling them again for just 82. The Pies needed just over 30 runs to

claim the outright win. Crib Point skipper Matt Blake picked up 5/18 in the first innings and Jacob Cook snared 4/21 in the second dig. The Pies are still 20 points outside of the top four. Peninsula Old Boys successfully defended its 8/277 against Sorrento, bowling out the Sorras with three overs to go for 251.

Leigh Poholke top scored for Sorrento with 71 while Jedd Flack hit 44. James LaBrooy was the best of the Old Boys’ bowlers with 3/29. Pines got the job done against Somerville, winning by 26 runs. Chasing 187 for victory, Somerville resumed on 1/15 and lost wickets at important times thereafter. Nick Wilcox took 4/36 for Pines and Alex Coad claimed 2/31.

on and finished at 6/51 to claim victory. Unfortunately for Boneo, which is also winless for the season and fighting relegation, it was unable to take advantage of its upper hand at the close of the opening day against Delacombe Park. Boneo bowled out Delacombe Park for 132 on the opening day of the match and resumed day two at 1/12. However, 1/12 quickly became 3/29 and then 5/39. Boneo was eventually bowled out for 86. Stuey Peck top-scored for the Pandas with 24, while Delacombe skipper Ricky Ramsdale dominated with the ball, taking 5/30 from 24.3 overs. Andrew Stapleton also played a ma-

jor role for the Parkers, claiming 3/21 from 17 overs. Boneo is now alone at the bottom of the table. Rosebud somehow successfully defended its shocking score of 113 against Seaford Tigers, winning by 11 runs. The Buds batted 66 overs for 113 last week before rolling the Tigers for just 102. David James top-scored for the Tigers with 49. The master who is Jason Nagel was superb once again for the Buds, picking up 6/46 from 24 overs. Rosebud was 5/56 in its second innings before play came to an end. Baden Powell recorded a fantastic victory against Mt Martha.

The Reds were in early trouble against the Braves, resuming at 3/32, chasing Baden Powell’s first innings total of 165. Things didn’t get much better for Mt Martha, bowled out for just 66 with Brett Wilkinson top scoring with 14. Michael Ballard was on fire for the Braves with 6/20 from 15.5 overs. Main Ridge skipper Gareth Wyatt turned back the clock and scored 131 for his side to help them to victory against Flinders. On a week where it was announced that former Victorian Sheffield Shield player and Sorrento coach Nick Jewell had signed with the club for two years from next season, the Ridge

were up and about on Saturday. Chasing 128 for victory, the Ridge resumed at 3/32 with Shaun Foster on 41. He finished with 70 while Wyatt dominated at the other end. Sam Lyons provided wonderful support also with a fine 64. Main Ridge finished at 8/291. Matty Burns was the pick of the Sharks’ bowlers with 3/26 from 15 overs. Red Hill recorded an easy victory against Heatherhill. Defending 201, Red Hill had its opponent 2/17 overnight. The Hills were eventually rolled for just 106 with Brett Maxwell top scoring with 28. Simon Dart collected 4/16 for the Hills off eight overs and Glenn Collett helped himself to 4/53 from 18 overs.

Demons get their first win

DISTRICT

By IT Gully RYE avoided a reverse outright attempt by Seaford to win its first game of the season in MPCA District cricket. Resuming at 5/111 on day two of the match and chasing Seaford’s first innings total of 74, Rye was eventually bowled out for 150, giving them a 76-run first innings lead. Seaford was always going to go for a reverse outright and scored 7/214 in 38 overs before sending Rye back into bat. Faisal Payenda smashed 92 and Chris Cleef hit 63 in Seaford’s second innings. Just needing to bat out the remainder of the day, Rye was able to hang

The Yabbies are on a roll SUB-DISTRICT

By IT Gully TYABB continued its big move on Saturday with a commanding win against second placed Ballam Park in MPCA Sub District cricket. The Yabbies have charged into the top four on the back of a couple of impressive victories. On Saturday, Tyabb belted Ballam Park. After scoring 9/270 with Jarrod White (72), Michael Edwards (50) and Nick Taranto (54) all dominating, the

Yabbies set about defending the total. When Tyabb’s Jai Gleeson picked up Stuart Plunkett for a duck, the Knights were in all sorts of trouble. Gleeson finished with the impressive figures of 4/37 from 18 overs, including eight maidens. Steve Worthington was outstanding for the Knights with a team-high 55. Hastings extended its lead at the top of the ladder with a 49-run win against Carrum. The Blues only made 149 with the bat but had Carrum 2/7 overnight.

Things didn’t get much better for the Lions, eventually bowled out for 100 in 60.4 overs. Mitchell Floyd finished with 3/36 for the Blues and Ryan McNamara chipped in with 3/20 from 9.4 overs. Luke Hewitt also claimed 2/19 from 20 overs. Daniel Graves was the best of the Carrum batsmen, making 20 batting at 11. Frankston YCW recorded a massive victory against Skye. The Stonecats hit 7/258 on the open-

ing day of the match with Paul Bradley back and scoring 89, while Brett Hudgson hit 55. Skye lost 3/36 in reply before storming to 200 with Anthony Craddock scoring 68 and Chris Milne 51. Lai Leaunoa was the star with the ball for the Stonecats with 5/29 from 17 overs. Dromana was smashed by Carrum Downs, which wasn’t surprising considering they resumed at 7/35 chasing 135. The Hoppers did put up a bit of a

fight early on the second day, getting to 96. Carrum Downs batted the day out and finished at 5/136. Tootgarook also was belted by Balnarring. Resuming at 0/6 and chasing 218 for victory, Tootgarook was bowled out for just 85. Geoff Bradshaw was the best of the saints’ bowlers with 3/13 from 15 overs, while Lee Murdoch and Brenton Taylor picked up a couple of wickets each.

Armour targets striker, four for Mornington SOCCER

By Craig MacKenzie SKYE United gaffer Billy Armour has his sights set on more new signings as he prepares for the upcoming State 3 South-East campaign. Armour already has enticed Johnny Andrinopoulos and Jason Nowakowski to join last year’s State 4 South champion and has a number of triallists under the microscope. Andrinopoulos last played with Kingston City in 2015 and can play in central defence or as a defensive midfielder. “Johnny’s locked in which is good. His fitness levels are getting there and as soon as he gets his touch back he’ll be a really good signing for us,” said Armour. Nowakowski played with Endeavour United last season and is a right winger. “He’s got a really good engine and he’s got that bit of quality that we need,” said Armour. Triallists include Faheem Essa, a striker from Glen Waverley, Brazilian midfielder Anderson de Aranjo Stoze and Sandown Lions duo Khor Pal Gatluak and Wumjuck John Jang. Gatluak can play in central defence or at right back and Jang plays up front. Gatluak made a favourable impression in last week’s friendly against

Baxter at Baxter Park. “He was quite solid to be honest and considering that Baxter are very strong up front and can also be physical Khor matched it with them so he could be a good asset for us,” said Armour. “It looks like it’s going to be a very even league and I hear that quite a few teams have strengthened. “Obviously you hear about Knox who have boys from the Pines and other local clubs so by all accounts they’ll be a strong side. “Because we’ve kept most of the squad from last year I think we’ll be competitive and hopefully with a few additions we’ll have more depth. “If I can get another striker in we won’t be too far away. “We had somebody that we agreed with but he’s not answering his phone now.” Forwards Matt Wilson and Alex Roberts are likely departures from last year’s squad. Travel issues have forced Wilson’s hand while Roberts is rumoured to be keen to play at a higher level. Armour’s team manager is Eric Wilson, Liam George is reserves coach and Travis Mitchell is George’s assistant. Armour and George attended an FFA/AFC C licence coaching course on Saturday so former senior assistant

Phil McGuinness was in charge of the squad that competed in the 2017 Steve Wallace Cup. The annual tournament was again hosted by Mornington at its Dallas Brooks Park headquarters. It drew a large crowd and the day’s proceeds went to Frankston Hospital’s emergency department. The home side triumphed for the fourth year running having reached the final due to a late goal that edged out a gallant Baxter 1-0. State 4 South’s Baxter surprised many onlookers with wins over State 2 South East club Berwick City and State 3 South East outfit Skye United. Baxter’s arch rival and fellow State 4 side, Rosebud Heart, also proved tough to break down only losing 1-0 to State 1 opponents Casey Comets and Langwarrin. Comets joined Mornington in the final due to superior goal difference over Langwarrin. The final’s decisive moment came in the second half when Stefan Soler, on trial from Frankston Pines, slipped the ball down the right to Mornington livewire Wayne Gordon who had made a diagonal run and as he gained possession the offside appeals from Comets players and bench fell on deaf ears. Gordon squared the ball to Michael Freeman whose low first-time strike

settled the issue. The downside on the day was the serious left leg injury suffered by Skye United’s Lachlan Campbell who fractured his tibia and also suffered two small fractures of his fibia. Here are all the Steve Wallace Cup results: 11am: Mornington 0 Berwick City 0, Langwarrin 1 Seaford Utd 0, Casey Comets 2 Peninsula Strikers 1, Skye Utd 1 Baxter 4. 12pm: Langwarrin 0 Casey Comets 0, Mornington 1 Skye Utd 1, Berwick City 2 Sth Springvale 0, Seaford Utd 0 Rosebud Heart 1. 1pm: Mornington 4 Sth Springvale 1, Seaford Utd 1 Peninsula Strikers 1, Langwarrin 1 Rosebud Heart 0, Berwick City 1 Baxter 2. 2pm: Peninsula Strikers 0 Rosebud Heart 0, Sth Springvale 1 Baxter 0, Berwick City 1 Skye Utd 1, Casey Comets 4 Seaford Utd 0. 3pm: Langwarrin 2 Peninsula Strikers 0, Skye Utd 1 Sth Springvale 0, Mornington 1 Baxter 0, Casey Comets 1 Rosebud Heart 0.

Final: Mornington 1 Casey Comets 0. In other news Langwarrin will welcome two more imports tomorrow (Tuesday) when midfielders Connor Belger and Paul Speed from AFC Liverpool fly in to Melbourne. Gun Langy striker Rachel Stirton has signed with women’s National Premier League outfit Southern United. The 22-year-old is the younger sister of Dandenong City striker David Stirton and partner of Bentleigh Greens striker Ryan Paczkowski. Goalscoring is in her DNA as her father, Iain, was a striker with Scottish club Rangers. Peninsula Strikers’ English import, Danny Brooks, debuted for the club at the Wallace Cup and the coaching staff were delighted with his performance. The 22-year-old attacking midfielder from Liverpool lacks nothing in confidence and has already declared that he’ll score at least 20 goals this season.

Balnarring Cup Day dominated by jockey duo By Ben Triandafillou THE Balnarring Picnic Racing Club held the seventh running of the Balnarring Cup last Thursday on Australia Day, bringing in a crowd of approximately 5000 people. The Balnarring Cup is the highlight of club’s season and was met with great excitement as jockeys Reece Goodwin and Courtney Pace took out four of the six races on the card. An Australia Day Ceremony was also held between race three and four including a flag raising ceremony and the singing of the National Anthem by local talent, Luci Smith. The Australia Day address was delivered by the Australia Day Ambassador and wellknown 3AW radio personality David Mann AOM FACID, known to many as “Mann About Town”. Jockey, Reece Goodwin, rode an impressive double, guiding the six-year-old mare, Bolshoi Belle, to victory in the 1600m CrownBet Balnarring Cup to win by 1.3 lengths for trainer Cliff Murray. Goodwin also got up in the second race on the card for father, Barry Goodwin, bringing his count to 25 points in the Tall Trees /Dave Cave Racing Stables Rider of The Year award. The “Queen of the Picnics”, Courtney Pace, continued to add to her lead in the Tall Trees / Dave Cave Racing Stables Rider of The Year award, riding a double in races one and three. Pace, a clear leader in the 2016/2017 picnic premiership, now holds an impressive record of 79 rides with 27 wins (34 per cent strike rate) in country Victoria.

Winning ways: Jockey Reece Goodwin receiving the Balnarring Cup Trophy.

By Ben Triandafillou THE Western Port Steelers have some promising young talent going through their club with junior basketballers, Beau Greenbury, Tyrone Wilk and Marley Thompson. With 13 Grand Final victories and six Most Valuable Player Award’s between them, the boys have clustered together an impressive cabinet of awards. The juniors, who will be playing in the under-16 Boys division, are incredibly dedicated, training four to five times a week in hopes to eventually make it into the Big V Youth League. Tyrone and Beau moved to the Western Port Steelers not long ago, playing their first season for the Steelers last year. In 2015, Tyrone Wilk was the

first athlete to be awarded a full scholarship to the Mornington Peninsula Sports Academy allowing him to participate in testing and several programs offered by the academy, an outstanding achievement. Marley is going into his sixth season at Western Port and found his passion for the sport playing domestically in Rowville. “I played domestic growing up, but I’m not originally from the Somerville area, I’m from Rowville. I played domestic over there and just loved it. Then moved here and started playing rep,” said Marley Thompson. The boys are now going through grading for the upcoming season which will commence on February 03 and are hoping to add another trophy to their cabinet.
