Ancient ceremony makes a welcome return YOUNG Aboriginal children participated in a ceremony at Rosebud last Wednesday that has not been held on the Mornington Peninsula for hundreds of years. The Welcome Bubup [baby] to Country ceremony at the Rosebud Southern Peninsula Arts Centre was attended by more than 70 parents, grandparents, great-grandparents, children and guests. Families walked through sacred smoke and were welcomed onto country by Boon Wurrung elder N’arweet Carolyn Briggs. This was followed by a ceremonial dance and didgeridoo performance. Each child was painted with ochre and presented with a certificate and cultural gift. Deb Mellett, Mornington Peninsula Shire’s Koolin Balit Aboriginal health coordinator, said the aim of the welcome “bubup” to country ceremony “is about connecting our families to culture and community, to rebuild confidence and pride about who we are”. “There is research evidence relating to the importance of culture and our overall wellbeing. The more we learn and practice culture, the health outcomes of our people improve and yesterday was a wonderful example of this,” Ms Mellett said. “This event created a positive cultural experience for all the families who attended.” Ms Mellett said the “significant event” was the first time since European settlement that the ceremony has been performed on the peninsula, (Boon wurrung/Bunurong country).

Shire knocks back projects Stephen Taylor steve@mpnews.com.au MORNINGTON Peninsula Shire Council has taken a hard line against two property developers whose projects do “not enhance, protect or respond to the valued character of the peninsula and our historic Sorrento”. The mayor Cr Bev Colomb was speaking after a planning services committee meeting on Monday 18 September refused a planning application for a three storey building at 141147 Ocean Beach Rd, Sorrento. The mixed-use development pro-

posed building two shops, 14 apartments and basement car park, and as well as the demolition of a building with a heritage overlay. Earlier, the council had also knocked back a bid for a 73-apartment block in Dromana described as “over-development of the site”. The proposed threestorey building, at 329 Point Nepean Rd, was described as being “inconsistent” with the shire’s planning scheme because its scale, bulk and height would “present a dominant built form uncharacteristic of the area”. The shire said the Sorrento application was opposed by “surrounding

owners, occupiers and the nearby community, citing concerns such as a lack of car parking, overpowering buildings, not in keeping with the heritage precinct, and traffic congestion”. The site sold for $4.18 million in April with the selling agents describing it as “one of the last remaining significant and developable land holdings on the famous strip”. They said the “irreplaceable regular shape landholding of close to 1000 square metres [was] serviced by 200 free council car parks out front with the potential to deliver one of Sorrento's last remaining developments”. Shire planners said the proposed

11-metre high building, earmarked for the corner of Heales St, Droaman would be “clearly at odds with the established neighbourhood character” of the area. Eighteen objections cited “potential traffic and parking problems, lack of public transport, excessive building height and loss of views”. “Many residents have a strong passion and concern about major changes that could significantly impact the look and feel of the peninsula,” Cr Colomb said. “As the local council, it is our role to uphold the concerns of our community members and protect our townships.

“Council is looking after growth on the peninsula by allowing for good built form that is appropriate and not detrimental to the character of our townships. “This [Sorrento] planning application did not meet the expected standards of our planning controls, the council or our community.” Cr Colomb said the Mornington Peninsula housing and settlement strategy would “help protect us from future development like this ... over the next 15 years, and will assist with good planning for many years to come”.

Police wade in to rescue woman in distress A DROMANA policeman braved a 150-metre dash in the freezing water off Rosebud beach to rescue a woman apparently attempting to commit suicide, 2.30pm, Wednesday 20 September. Leading Senior Constable Andy Haines and colleague Leading Senior Constable Melinda Chance, of Dromana police, rushed to the beach after receiving an emergency call. They saw the 44-year-old Frankston woman, fully clothed, heading out to sea in a distressed and disoriented state. “She seemed to be wailing and not responding to our calls,” Constable Haines said. “I stripped down and waded out to her and said I was a policeman but she didn’t want to come in even though she had been out there for an hour. “She wouldn’t walk and I had to carry and drag her to shore. She was exhausted and purple from the cold.” Constable Chance stayed with their equipment on shore and monitored ambulance officers who arrived to take the woman to Frankston Hospital. Passers-by offered their towels to the pair to dry off after the incident. For support and information about suicide prevention, contact Lifeline on 13 11 14 or Suicide Call Back Service on 1300 659 467.

‘Insights’ gained from China trip - mayor VISITS to waste treatment plants in China by a councillor and two Mornington Peninsula Shire executives “brings new insights into alternative waste technology on the peninsula”, according to a shire statement. The 14 September statement follows criticism of the trip by Cr Hugh Fraser, acting chief operating officer Niall McDonagh and waste services team leader Daniel Hinson and preempts an official report to council. The three were in China earlier this month and their report on the value of the tour and “how knowledge gained may influence the future direction of alternate waste technologies in the region and the shire” is due within 30 days of their return (9 September). The trip cost ratepayers about $7500. “It is important council has a firsthand understanding of the potential

waste technologies, how they would fit and be accepted if situated in our local community,” the mayor Cr Bev Colomb said. “It is our responsibility and commitment to researching new technology to replace the need for landfill, and supporting our commitment to becoming carbon neutral by 2021.” Mr McDonagh, who has since been named as the shire’s new COO, said in last week’s statement that the China trip “enabled us to see the potential of waste on the Mornington Peninsula and how it impacted their [the Chinese] local community”. “Every year, the shire pays around $2.8 million in landfill levies to the state government. We must make the right decisions about our waste to ensure we preserve and protect our peninsula,” Mr McDonagh said.

“Some of the initiatives we are currently working on at the shire to reduce, reuse or recycle waste include educating our local community on what you can and cannot recycle, offering no charge green waste events, and advocating for a no plastic bag peninsula.” The tour group included representatives from Greater Dandenong City Council and the Metropolitan Waste and Resource Recovery Group. A Dandenong councillor has since been reported as saying all the information needed about waste and recycling was available at the Australasian Waste and Recycling Expo held in Melbourne in August. During its time in China the shire’s team toured the GCL Taicang and Jiading plants. The Jiading plant receives about 1400 tonnes of garbage

from 360 trucks a day – close to 1300 tonnes more than what the peninsula receives in any 24-hours. The shire’s statement said the plant “achieves better than European standards by using generated electricity to power the plant, feed into the grid and using excess steam” as heating. Cr Fraser said the study tour provided “great knowledge on alternatives to greenhouse gas generating landfill”. “We gained valuable, first-hand understanding of potential waste technologies and how they would fit in and suit the needs of the peninsula community,” he said. “We have all been extremely impressed by the technologies we saw which will play a vital role in addressing the global issues of pollution and waste. “The knowledge we gained from

this visit will ensure council is well positioned to understand, consider and take the lead with other local councils in the joint procurement of appropriate and cost effective waste technologies, which will benefit future generations.” The delegation also visited Nanjing South’s Everbright waste-to-energy centre which treats waste from six million people. The project has a daily processing capacity of 4000 tonnes and claims 95 per cent of waste is converted to energy. The final leg of the study tour saw the team visiting the $100 million Xuzhou GCL waste to energy plant (630,000 tonnes of waste a year and 400 trucks a day) and the Fengxian energy plant, which has a six megawatt solar plant, organics processing, bio-mass processing and a water treatment plant.

Liberal call for Labor help in ulcer fight Stephen Taylor steve@mpnews.com.au NEPEAN Liberal candidate Russell Joseph wants the state government to “drop the politics” and work with the federal government on research to eradicate the Buruli ulcer. Cases of the devastating condition, described by a sufferer as “rampant” on the Mornington Peninsula, rose from 47 in 2014 to 159 so far this year. Last week, Tyabb girl Ella Crofts, 13, recalled her excruciating experience after being diagnosed with the ulcer in her knee in April – and called on the federal government to fund research into the debilitating condition. (“Funds flow for ulcer study” The News 26/9/17). The article mistakenly reported that Flinders MP and Health Minister Greg Hunt had promised $2.4 million for research into the Buruli ulcer following Ella’s campaign for more money. It has now been revealed that the money has been spent on research since 2000 – the equivalent of $141,000 a year – and no “new” money has been promised, although Mr Hunt reportedly met with Ella and her family as a gesture of support. Mr Hunt agreed extra research was needed and the government would take a “sympathetic” look at any proposals. “I’ve asked the chief medical officer for the Australian government and the head of the national Health and Medical Research Council to work with Victoria on additional research priorities and support,” he told The News. Now, Mr Joseph is pushing the state government to pay for an education and eradication

program to rid Victoria of the devastating ulcer “once and for all”. “This matter has been raised over the past two years with the Victorian Health Minister [Jill Hennessy] as she has the primary responsibility for public health action, and to undertake ongoing and active surveillance and reporting of this disease,” he said. “The core issue on the peninsula has been misdiagnosis and the subsequent lack of early intervention for those who first present with symptoms.” He said an education program among all health care professionals and community organisations on the peninsula was “urgently needed as a first step”. “Our community has had enough of the blame shifting and petty politics, it is time for Labor to simply step up and deal with this disease once and for all,” Mr Joseph, who manages the electorate office of Nepean MP Martin Dixon, said. Ms Hennessy wrote to Mr Dixon in April to say that a “further $50,000 had been allocated to develop educational materials for medical practitioners to improve diagnosis and management” of the ulcer. She said the education would be provided through the Primary Health Network which plays a “critical role” in providing information and training for GPs. She said she hoped the new program would have a “meaningful impact in preventing unnecessary delays in diagnosis and improve early access to treatment”. Mr Joseph: “Unless the minister acts quickly and works with Mr Hunt then the incidence of this ghastly disease will continue to escalate.”

‘Go Tigers’: Richmond diehards Kathryn Finemore, Mary Seers (rear), Molly Flaherty, Sophie Finemore and baby Matilda Sorby settle in for the club’s first grand final win in a generation. Picture: Gary Sissons

‘They’re from Tigerland’ ONE extended Mornington Peninsula “pride” was awaiting the grand final siren with more than a little trepidation on Saturday. Five generations of the one family, led by great-great grandmother Molly Flaherty, had gathered at the Elm Mount Martha Valley aged care home, Safety Beach, in the lead-up to a longed-for Tiger triumph. Matriarch Mrs Flaherty, 100, can trace her clan’s Tiger allegiance back to 1933 when her older brother, Bob Gislingham, played a single VFL game for Richmond. That was enough: Mrs Flaherty drummed a sense of Tiger loyalty into

her children and they into theirs – making the weekend’s flag tilt after 35 years a real test of nerves. Mrs Flaherty “treasures the letter she received from the team to congratulate her on her 100th birthday more than the one from the Queen,” grand-daughter, 57-year-old Kathryn Finemore, said. “The Queen's letter is in the cupboard while the one from the team sits next to her bed.” As the clan gathered to watch the win, the sounds of We're from Tigerland were never far away.

Alarm over possible power loss Stephen Taylor steve@mpnews.com.au A GROUP of Western Port residents took their concerns over potential power outages in the hectic summer period to Hastings MP Neale Burgess last week. “We put to him our personal concerns about the effect of power outages which we anticipate this summer with the closure of the Hazelwood power station,” Hastings resident Fran Henke said. “While outages will affect businesses big and small, we wanted him to understand what could happen to people dependent on electricity for their survival and wellbeing.” Ms Henke said Mr Burgess had promised to raise concerns about power outages in parliament “as soon as possible”. Mary Campagnolo cares for her husband who is paralysed down one side after a stroke. He requires an electric bed to raise his head, shoulders and feet because Mary, 76, cannot lift his head on her own to prevent choking. Financial adviser Jenny McGowan has concerns about the soaring cost of power through her work at Cranbourne Information and Support Centre. When one of her clients on life support couldn’t pay an $18,000 power bill her power was switched off. Ms McGowan, who worked with the woman for two years to bring her bills into credit, says many clients depend on electricity for their survival. As a polio survivor, Ms Henke told Mr Burgess that the virus destroyed

her body’s “thermostat”, making her heat-and-cold intolerant. “Air-conditioning is essential for [polio sufferers] in summer,” she said. “Many also use electric wheelchairs and mobility scooters, as well

as breathing machines for respiratory support day and night.” The group discussed the idea of offering cash incentives to those who reduced their power use – which older people might be tempted to do – but at

the risk of harming themselves; also, of older people staying in bed for warmth rather than using power for heating. Others may be tempted to go without food so as to be able to afford power. “We discussed the need for a cam-

paign to help younger people with their gadgets appreciate the need to conserve power, such as turning off lights and putting their equipment on standby,” Ms Henke said. “Power outages for older people also bring the risk of more falls at night, which cause a high percentage of nursing home admissions.” The large number of aged care and nursing homes on the peninsula, especially around Frankston, are especially vulnerable to power outages, Ms Henke said. “Ten people died in Florida during Cyclone Irma when nursing homes had generators for lighting but not for air conditioning. Temperatures were over 100 degrees [37 degrees centigrade] there.” The MePACS personal alarm service, common on the peninsula, has planned for possible power outages. Operations manager Michel Nelson told Ms Henke that discussions with the NBN contractors aimed to ensure that, when phones were connected via modems – rather than phone lines – the 48-hour back-up batteries would maintain a connection with clients. People needed to keep their mobile phones charged for emergency calls, rather than relying on landlines, once NBN is connected, he said.

New role for Morris, Burgess unchanged A SHAKE-up of the state opposition’s shadow cabinet has seen Mornington MP David Morris take on the role of local government spokesperson. Mr Morris’s new role is in addition to being the opposition’s spokesperson for finance and cabinet secretary. Hastings MP Neale Burgess remains opposition spokesperson for small and medium sized enterprises. Nepean MP Martin Dixon – a former education minister and the third Liberal Party MP on the Mornington Peninsula – has announced his retirement at the next election and holds no shadow cabinet position. Opposition leader Matthew Guy said the Liberal Nationals coalition would over the next 14 months “give Victorians a real choice at the next election between more of the same or a better future”. “Victorians will have a clear choice at the next election. A choice between a team focused on ideas and policies that will focus on jobs and protecting the way we live, or a government more focused on themselves’ and rorting the taxpayer,” Mr Guy said. Mr Morris, a councillor and shire president of the former Shire of Mornington, said knew “better than most” the strengths and weaknesses of local government. “At its best, local government builds a sense of community and provides basic but important services and does them well. At its worst, local government is a magnet for empire builders who think they’ve been elected to the United Nations. “I believe if local government councillors want to play with federal political issues they should

run for federal parliament and leave community issues to those that are genuinely passionate about their community.” Mr Morris said the state opposition was “working on a plan to manage Victoria’s population growth of over 100,000 people every year”. “It’s a plan that will grow jobs around the state, including an ambitious construction and infrastructure program that will improve the connectivity between cities and towns to help decentralise our population.” He said local government “has an exciting and important role to play” in the decentralisation of population. Mr Morris has opposed the Labor government’s planning changes which he says could see “buildings of up to 11 metres and potentially three storeys” constructed [on the peninsula] without a permit” and would “undoubtedly destroy forever the intrinsic coastal character of our towns and villages”. He said changes to the general residential zone were in conflict with the Mornington Peninsula Localised Planning Statement, which was released in 2014 to great fanfare during the term of the Liberal-Nationals state government. “The planning statement sought to recognise, maintain and enhance the special character of the peninsula, and maintain and enhance the character of our towns and villages. The recent changes clearly are in conflict with that state policy,” Mr Morris said. Mr Morris, who played a big role in having the Mornington Planning scheme adopted, has previously told The News he would work with the shire in opposing the changes brought in by the Labor government.

held on Sunday 12 November. Ms Da Silva is returning to the challenge this year to raise money and awareness for the Cathy Freeman Foundation. While a teenager she wrote a poem after being the victim of a traumatic racial attack which led to her campaigning for Indigenous children to “have the same amount of privilege and support, in education, that all children do”. She has now raised more than

$15,000 for the Cathy Freeman Foundation, one of the charity’s largest single donations. While the Arthurs Seat Challenge supports Fit2Drive, a road safety education program for secondary students across the Mornington Peninsula and in Frankston, organisers welcome its use as a platform to support other causes.

Polo’s exploration of art’s intention SYDNEY-BASED artist Tom Polo spent some time researching the Mornington Peninsula Regional Gallery’s collection before painting his impressions on the wall in the gallery’s foyer. His 13 metre painting includes works from the gallery’s collection and will be on display until 26 November, along with an exhibition of portraits from the gallery’s collection and the 2017 National Photographic Portrait Prize from the National Portrait Gallery. Polo says his work is as much about the process as it is the “finished” result. “I think it will ask questions about how our understanding of an artwork changes when we are privy to its process. Do we read the final work differently when we see its creation in increments? “I'll be hanging works from the MPRG collection within the wall painting as a way of exploring fluid relationships of time and space that exist between artworks and ideas.” The gallery’s 1600 works range from the 18th century to the present; old master prints and drawings; works by Arthur Boyd, Russell Drysdale and Charles Blackman; and contemporary works by established and emerging artists. Tom Polo was a finalist in the 2016 National Works on Paper, this year’s Sulman Prize and winner of the 2015 Brett Whiteley Travelling Art Scholarship. A judge of the scholarship, Archibald Prize winner Fiona Lowry, said his work “illuminates anxieties and failures in a most beautiful way”. The gallery is in Civic Reserve, Dunns Rd, Mornington.

Shire eyes ‘port’ land for industry Keith Platt keith@mpnews.com.au THE state government is being asked to explain the future use of hundreds of hectares of land set aside to cater for the demands of the now abandoned container port at Hastings. The land around Western Port is now mostly used for agriculture at Hastings, Tyabb, Somerville and Crib Point. Facing a shortage of large industrial sites within 10 years, Mornington Peninsula Shire is about to ask the government to explain what type of development it wants on the swathes of “port-related” land. The coming shortage of industrial land is outlined in one of two draft strategies presented to councillors last month. Planners believe the Mornington Peninsula has enough land zoned for commercial and retail uses for the next 20 years, but there will be a shortfall for industry. Their estimate for retail and com-

mercial land includes revitalising and consolidating town centres as well adding in the increasing number of retailers operating in light industrial areas. The planners say the shire has less industrial land - not including that warehoused for port-related purposes - than neighbouring Frankston, Kingston, Casey and Greater Dandenong. Manufacturing and construction contribute 36 per cent of the shire’s economic output, although manufacturing has recently seen a decline in numbers of employed while the building industry has increased. Strategies to ensure there is enough land for commercial, retail and industrial purposes on the peninsula for the next two decades are about to be exhibited for public comment by shire. A report by strategic projects manager Allan Cowley and projects and research officer Martin Chin presented to the shire’s planning services committee on Monday 18 September highlighted the seasonal demand on businesses and stressed the importance of

not allowing commercial development outside of town centres. The planners told councillors that having “a hierarchy of commercial centres” on the peninsula would provide “the highest levels of service in the centres serving the largest populations”. The activity centres review is based on the need for an extra 105,000 square metres of commercial and retail floor space over the next two decades. The shire already has 384,000 square metres and the increase is about 27 per cent. The planners say this increase is “roughly in line” with predicted growth in population and housing. These forecasts have also been used in the drawing up of structure plans for the peninsula’s main activity centres Mornington, Rosebud and Hastings. “… It appears that this demand can be accommodated through the consolidation and revitalisation of existing town centre commercial areas. This is particularly the case given the changes to the industrial zones which have ef-

fectively already created a range of new opportunities for commercial and retail development,” the planners’ report to councillors states. The draft Mornington Peninsula Activity Centres Strategy review and Mornington Peninsula Industrial Areas Strategy 2017 will be on public exhibition and open for comment for four weeks. The planners say findings in the reports should be considered alongside “higher level plans” for housing, health and wellbeing, economic development and managing green wedge zones. The shire has allowed homemaker centres (with plenty of parking) outside of the central activity centres at Mornington and Rosebud. The planners say it is “reasonable for council to continue to advocate against out of centre retail development, particularly in the form of relatively small shop front retailing, which is a distinctive feature of the shire’s town centres”. Changes to government planning laws have also led to “the growing

presence of non-industrial uses such as homemaker retailing, small supermarkets, gyms, indoor sports facilities, art galleries, cafes, takeaway food outlets, breweries, and office suites outside of Mornington’s major activity centre and within the Capel Sound industrial area”. The planners estimate that 25 per cent of “available” retail spending “escapes” from the peninsula, either online or to major commercial centres such as Frankston and Cranbourne. This is loss is partly made up for by visitors or “temporary residents” (holiday home owners) who are estimated to account for about 14 per cent of retail sales. This spending is regarded as seasonal and only significant in towns such as Sorrento, Rosebud, Rye and Mt Martha, not Somerville or Hastings. Recommendations in the draft activity centres strategy follow the findings of consultants Essential Economics (hired by council to review the strategy in late 2015) and state government changes to planning regulations.

Man breaks leg in station scooter fall

A SEAFORD man had a narrow escape when he inadvertently drove his mobility scooter off a Frankston train station platform and into the path of an oncoming train, 11.15am, Saturday 23 September. The 69-year-old was attempting to manoeuvre the scooter on Platform 2 when he ran over the edge and crashed to the ground. He suffered a severely broken left leg, police said. The Metro Trains driver saw the man fall and managed to stop the train, reportedly causing traffic delays at the Overton Rd level crossing. Ambulance, fire brigade and police

attended the incident and the man was taken by ambulance to The Alfred hospital. Services between Frankston and Carrum resumed at 12.20pm after the mobility scooter was removed from the tracks. There were delays of up to an hour between Carrum and Frankston; two services had to be cancelled and 10 rescheduled. “This would have been a terrifying experience and our thoughts and concern are for our passenger involved,” Metro Trains spokesperson Marcus Williams said.  “We’re grateful for the profession-

alism and care provided by our staff who responded immediately and assisted the emergency services when they arrived shortly after. “Although this type of incident is rare, we are always working to provide a safe and accessible network for everyone and partner with accessibility organisations. “We are currently investigating this incident. “ Mr Williams said Metro had established an accessibility reference group to provide advice and guidance to continuously improve the accessibility on the metropolitan rail network. 

“Groups such as Vision Australia, Guide Dogs Victoria, Travellers Aid and Scope provide travel training through events such as Try Before You Ride seminars, which encourage customers to practice boarding and alighting trains safely,” he said. Stephen Taylor

Business case on line A BUSINESS case for the electrification of the Frankston line to Baxter will go ahead after the federal and state governments agreed to look at the plan. Federal Dunkley Liberal MP Chris

Crewther announced on Friday 22 September that the Labor state government and federal Coalition government had agreed to pursue the business case. “The business case will go out for tender later this year. Once costed, this opens the way for the state and federal Governments to fully fund building the rail project,” he said. “The business case itself will cost and plan extending metro rail to a new Frankston Hospital station, Leawarra station at Monash University Peninsula Campus, a new Langwarrin railway station and Baxter station, plus look at park and ride options and new stabling yards at or near Baxter.”

Grape growers slow to adopt ‘safety’ code LESS than half of the grape growers on the Mornington Peninsula have registered with Agriculture Victoria to be notified of threats to their crops. The department and the Mornington Peninsula Vignerons Association (MPVA) say registering for a property identification code (PIC) will enable growers to “get the jump on pest and disease threats in their region with faster access to biosecurity information”. Growers with 0.5 hectares or more grapes must register with the PIC program. “PICs are the best option for receiving fast and accurate biosecurity information; however, less than 45 per cent of peninsula grape growers have registered for one,” MPVA technical chairman Tyson Lewis said. He said by registering for a PIC, Agriculture Victoria “is able to quickly alert local growers about a plant pest infestation or disease outbreak that may hit hard on the hip pockets of their business”. “It is a grower’s responsibility to maintain or improve biosecurity practices on their property, to ensure their business is not left exposed to the damaging effects of a plant pest or disease outbreak,” he said. “Registering for a PIC takes no more than a few minutes, and then growers will have an effective way to respond to a potential grape phylloxera or any other infestation in the region.” To help protect your business from pests and diseases, MPVA is urging all vineyard owners to register online with Agriculture Victoria for a plant PIC. “Grapevine growers also need to remember that the application for a PIC is a legal obligation for your industry so I urge all vineyard owners who grow 0.5 hectares or more of grapes to do their bit and register with Agriculture Victoria.” To apply for a PIC go to mpva.com.au or agriculture.vic.gov.au/agriculture/horticulture/ property-identification-codes

Police patrol Alleged burglar cuts up rough AN intruder with a broken beer bottle in his hand allegedly charged Rosebud police when they answered a burglary call-out at Flinders, 11pm, Friday 22 September. The Welshpool man, 39, was described as “violent” by police who sprayed him with OC foam (capsicum spray) before arresting him. One policeman received minor injuries in the struggle in Stokes St. Members of the family living in the house said they had been watching TV in the front room when they saw a man shining a torch in their rear bungalow and called 000. He had earlier been in their kitchen allegedly stealing items. The man was remanded to appear at Frankston Magistrates’ Court on Monday 25 September charged with aggravated burglary and other offences. He was further remanded to appear at Melbourne Magistrates’ Court at a later date also charged with five thefts from cars and other burglaries in the area.

Building theft TWO range hoods valued at $2000, a set of keys and a controller for a heated towel rack were stolen from a building site in Mornington last week. Thieves entered the Venice St property and stole the items from two unlocked townhouses under construction, between 23-25 September.

Drink-driver SOMERVILLE Highway Patrol police pulled over a 39-year-old Somerville woman in Jones Rd, Somerville, Saturday 23 September. She allegedly tested positive to a preliminary breath test and was taken back to the police station where she blew 0.095 per cent. She was given a $476 infringement notice and her licence was cancelled for six months.

Husband, wife ‘assaulted’ “He then said he and his partner would inspect my boat and car. I said, ‘Fine, go for it, there’s only cheese and crackers and a few drinks in the esky’.” Mr Taylor said his boat had “no rods set up, no tackle box, no bait – no signs of any fishing whatsoever”. Tensions escalated after Mr Taylor got a “tad mouthy” and challenged the officer’s right to inspect his boating safety gear rather than his fishing gear. “He got offended by my reply and went to spray me with his capsicum spray,” he said. “I went to jump in the car and wind up the window when he hit me numerous times to the face and chest area [while] trying to grab the car keys. “I was being pounded, with blood everywhere, and lost my front teeth.” Mr Taylor’s wife Shauna Martin screamed at the other fisheries officer to stop the alleged attack. “She ran around to stop him [and] he punched her to ground and then stomped her head three times. “Eventually he stopped after his partner shouted: ‘Stop, stop, you’ll kill her’. “It’s a low act to assault anyone, let alone a defenceless woman and especially without any reason – regardless of a little lip. “He had no right to use violence.” Mr Taylor, who said he had previous criminal convictions, the “most recent 13 years ago”, confirmed he was seeking legal advice. He is urging witnesses to come forward – especially those who he thinks may have filmed the incident. “There were about 150 people in the car park that day,” he said.

Stephen Taylor steve@mpnews.com.au PATTERSON Lakes resident Steven Taylor is appealing for witnesses after alleging he and his wife were assaulted by a Fisheries Victoria officer when they returned to the Olivers Hill, Frankston boat ramp on Friday 22 September. Mr Taylor said the “entirely unexpected” alleged assault occurred after they returned from a boat ride to Mornington. The alleged assault with fists, baton and capsicum spray left him with broken front teeth and facial and bodily bruising, while his wife received severe facial bruising after being “stomped on three times”. Acting Senior Sergeant Patrick Hayes, of Frankston police, said later: “I can confirm our attendance at an incident on Friday 22 September at the Frankston jetty. “This matter is currently being investigated and the details of all parties were obtained at the scene.” The Victorian Fisheries Authority confirmed an “altercation” occurred but would not elaborate. “On Friday 22 September at around 2.25pm, two fisheries officers attempted to conduct an inspection of two people at Olivers Hill boat ramp in Frankston resulting in an altercation,” the VFA said in a statement.  “Victoria Police are investigating the incident and, therefore, it is not appropriate to make any further comment.”  Mr Taylor said there was “absolutely no reason [for the attack] considering we weren’t even fishing”. He said the two Fisheries officers in plain clothes asked, “How did you go?” when they approached him at the ramp. “I assumed they were just fishermen and

replied ‘good’,” he said. “I told them we had gone for a cruise to Mornington and back on a calm day. “[One of the men] then stated he was from Fisheries and asked for my identification. I complied with his request and showed [it] and replied that I didn’t need a fishing licence because I was not fishing.

ART can heal old mental wounds. That’s the message of an exhibition called The Art of Recovery to be held at Frankston Arts Centre’s Cube 37 during Mental Health Week. The annual event, coordinated by not-for-profit mental health and disability support organisation Wellways, showcases the talents of artists affected by mental health issues. Annabelle Carver is one of the artists whose artwork Cries of Frustration will be on display from 8-14 October. Carver recently moved to the western suburbs, having lived in Seaford for most of her life. From the age of 14 until 22 when her family sought help for her anxiety and depression, Carver struggled to live a productive life. “Throughout my teenage years and early adulthood I was quite affected by that depression and anxiety,” she said. “I was introduced to meditation and artwork by a good friend who I actually used to go to school with. “What I found with doing artwork is it took me to that level of meditation without actually having to be in the mindfulness part of the meditative state. “Artwork allowed me to come in to the present moment and let it all out.” The 32-year-old said art therapy continues to work for her and she continues to paint, sketch or draw every day. “My canvas is my therapy. It gave me calm and solace that I never knew existed.” Wellways CEO Elizabeth Crowther said the organisation is hosting art event

nationally to encourage people to talk about their mental health experiences. “This exhibition in Frankston is a great way for people with lived experience or their carers and families to share their stories visually,” she said. “Art is a great medium for sharing stories and is also a recognised therapeutic model.” Carver said she is proud to be part of the exhibition to hopefully eradicate the stigma some people may feel about mental illness. She has a positive message for those struggling with the pain of depression and anxiety. “Follow your heart and do whatever makes you happy whether it’s cooking, dancing, singing, walking in the park, playing drums or music. “Whatever makes you happy continue to do that and if it brings you joy and happiness then everything else that you’re feeling will just basically fall by the wayside.” n The Art of Recovery exhibition is free to attend and runs from Thursday 5 October-Saturday 28 October at Cube 37, Frankston Arts Centre, 25-37 Davey St, Frankston. Works can be viewed Tuesday to Friday, 9am-5pm and on Saturdays, 9am-2pm.Visitors to Cube 37 can spend an evening with the artists at the Artist’s Soiree on Monday 9 October, 6-8pm. The evening will include refreshments and entertainment. Anyone interested in producing artwork or attending the Artist’s Soiree should call Wellways Frankston on 9784 6800. For crisis support and counselling call Lifeline on 13 11 14 or the suicide call back service on 1300 659 467.

In line for business case A BUSINESS case for the long-mooted electrification of the Frankston line to Baxter will go ahead after the federal and state governments got onboard a unity ticket to look at the plan. Federal Dunkley Liberal MP Chris Crewther announced last Friday (22 September) that the Labor state government and federal Coalition government had agreed to pursue the business case Mr Crewther announced on the eve of last year’s federal election. “We’re now able to proceed as the state government have finally decided to play ball by submitting an initial and now revised project scope, after ignoring the federal funding on the table for over a year,” Mr Crewther said. “The business case will go out for tender later this year. Once costed, this opens the way for the state and federal Governments to fully fund building the rail project.”

“The business case itself will cost and plan extending metro rail to a new Frankston Hospital station, Leawarra station at Monash University Peninsula Campus, a new Langwarrin railway station and Baxter station, plus look at park and ride options and new stabling yards at or near Baxter.” Frankston mayor Cr Brian Cunial welcomed the business case announcement. “It is great to hear that both levels of government have come on board with this vital project and we thank them our local members Chris Crewther and Paul Edbrooke for their tireless efforts in achieving this positive win for the region,” the mayor said in a statement. “We hope that this will see the Victorian government reconsider moving train stabling facilities to Baxter rather than Kananook, a decision which would save over 200 local jobs.”

Home is where the art is VISITORS can marvel at a scribe’s steady hand and artistic flair at a new homegrown and homebased “museum of the heart” that has opened in Frankston. Chinese born calligrapher Mike Li, who arrived in Australia in 2013, is a master at drawing and painting Chinese characters and has been learning the skill since the age of five, six decades ago. Li’s work has been displayed at the Great Wall Museum in China. He said a recent visitor to the museum, with

more than ten years’ experience in the art of Chinese calligraphy, was impressed and learned a lot from the visit. Li also teaches the art of Chinese calligraphy to students at the University of the Third Age (U3A) in Frankston. “The museum is a charity project free for all the visitors,” Li said. “In future, if there is a large place I can share more with the visitors.” *To arrange a visit to the home-based museum email Mike Li at mikeli.tj@gmail.com

Mornington Peninsula Shire’s commitment to safety Enforceable Undertaking Mornington Peninsula Shire Council is a major service provider to peninsula residents and visitors. The Shire delivers maternal and child health services to parents and carers of children from birth to six years. The services are available from 17 centres across the Shire to help parents and carers assess children’s health, growth and development. Information and advice is also available on topics including immunisation, childhood illness, sleep and settling, home safety and infant feeding. In April 2015, a mother brought her eight week old infant to the Waterfall Gully Maternal and Child Health Centre in Rosebud. While the mother and infant were at the Centre, a heater guard fell on top of the infant who was on the floor. The infant was seriously injured, requiring urgent and ongoing medical treatment. The infant has made a full recovery but undergoes regular check-ups as a precautionary measure. The Mornington Peninsula Shire Council truly regrets that this terrible and preventable incident occurred. We recognise the effect on the infant,

The Mornington Peninsula Shire Council was charged with offences under sections 23(1), 38(1) and 38(3) of the Occupational Health and Safety Act 2004. The offences were failing to protect members of the public from risks to their health and safety, failing to immediately notify WorkSafe and failing to give WorkSafe a written report of the incident within 48 hours. Mornington Peninsula Shire Council has no prior findings of guilt or convictions under the Occupational Health and Safety Act 2004.

Game of tiles a brain exercise PLAYING mahjong only once or twice a week isn’t enough for enthusiastic seniors at Mornington’s University of the Third Age – they also meet up afterwards to indulge their passion. Mahjong is a game of skill, strategy, calculation and chance. Players use tiles depicting Chinese symbols and characters, such as flowers, winds, dragons and numbers. They aim to collect specific sets of tiles by picking up and discarding others. The first player to achieve such a hand calls out “mahjong” and receives points. This year regular player Jill Storey decided to

learn, and then teach, American mahjong, which is a different form of the game. Her small group is gradually gaining more members who enjoy the challenge of learning new rules. “Learning and playing mahjong is another of those activities likely to benefit older people by preventing or delaying the onset of Alzheimer’s or other forms of dementia,” Ms Storey said. “In this game the brain is always learning. But, apart from that, it’s exciting, fun, and a great way to socialise. Mahjong forever, housework never, is our catch-cry.”

Hurry! 12 Weeks to Christmas! If you need curtains & blinds before Christmas then don’t wait until it’s too late... Make an appointment today for one of our decorators to come and see you.

Cultural artefacts created at men’s shed THE Hastings-based Willum Warrain Aboriginal Association has been given $36,864 from the state government to build a men’s shed. The shed’s focus will be on creating such cultural artefacts as boomerangs, woomeras and didgeridoos, as well as totem sculptures for a bush trail. The grant will be jointly administered by Department of Health and Human Services, Mornington Peninsula Shire and the association. Secretary to the Treasurer Daniel Murlino, Eastern Division MLC, last week made the announcement at the Willum Warrain Gathering Place in Pound Rd, Hastings. He was accompanied by Phil Kiely from the Men’s Shed Organisation of Victoria and Crs Kate Roper and David Gill.

“For us, bringing back cultural practice is very, very important,” Willum Warrain president Peter Aldenhoven said. “Having a building to do this cultural rejuvenation work in all year round, no matter what the weather, will make a significant difference. “We want to make our culture visible to visitors to the Gathering Place because sharing our culture fills us with pride.” This is the first time in the region that dedicated funding has been provided for Aboriginal men to gather and connect with a particular focus on cultural practice. Mr Aldenhoven said Victoria has about 350 men’s sheds with benefits that include social interaction, physical activity and learning new skills.

Everyone has a story to tell By Tony Nicholl THE Mornington Peninsula has many retirees with a story or even a book, and Eric Brewer is one of those. A few months ago he moved to Rosebud from Benalla, which had been his home for a good part of his life. Brewer now thinks the retirement in Rosebud is utopia redolent of A B Facey's bestseller A Fortunate Life, especially in view of the fact that he has made his luck without expectation or entitlement. Brewer has lived in many places and always conducted a life well lived on account of having had a sound childhood and by addressing life's challenges front and centre. Born in 1930, he grew up in "working class" West Preston. The local Methodist church was the cornerstone of the Brewer family and he says Christ has always been his strength. Later, he helped in his father's struggling button factory. He went to West Preston technical school and played every sport he could. Later he went to Swinburne Institute of Technology but left early that to help his dad. He played VFA footy at Preston but eventually settled for VFA and VFL umpiring at the highest level. In 1950 he completed his police training and embarked on a career based mostly in Benalla but also in Casterton and Melbourne. For a considerable time Brewer was chief superintendent in charge of a large part of northeast Victoria. He has twin boys and a daughter who he says adore him and vice versa, but had an "unsatisfactory"

ERIC Brewer at home in Rosebud. Picture: Yanni marriage requiring him to be “a sound father and mother at times”. When interviewed for this article he had a selection of cakes and biscuits he had baked in case of "drop ins". It’s apparent Brewer has the capacity to turn adversity into advantage. I remember him as "umpire Brewer" when at school. He mostly ran in the VFA but also had a couple of seasons in what was the VFL. He ran the boundary when he gave up central

umpiring. He finished as a goal umpire at 50. Brewer's first game in the VFL was at Footscray between Geelong (captained by Bob Davis) and Footscray (led by Ted Whitten). I cannot imagine him being fazed by that, even though most would be. Other umpires on the panel when he was include Jack Irving (why did his hair stick straight up?), Bob Nunn (favoured Collingwood, I thought),

Road safety works A ROUNDABOUT will be built at the intersection of Wooralla Drive and St Kilda St, Mt Eliza. The roadworks are part of a bigger package of works for Wooralla Drive, between Tower and Maughan roads. They are part of the federal Blackspot program which aims to reduce high severity crashes on our roads. A roundabout at St Kilda St will also aim to reduce the downhill speeds of vehicles along Wooralla Drive. Further works in the area include a raised centre median, lighting, and a guard rail between the new roundabout and Brighton Crescent. “We are determined to make the best possible improvements to reduce the crash history of this intersection and improve safety for our community,” Mornington Peninsula Shire mayor mayor Cr Bev Colomb said. Cr Sam Hearn said the works would improve road safety by slowing vehicles in the area.

Schwab, Beitzel and Nash. He was paid just five guineas plus expenses for umpiring compared to $50,000 up front these days plus expenses and so much a game. Brewer's endeavours in the community are legendary and are the reason why he has an OAM (order of Australia). Everything he has done is approached with a "can do" perspective. He was a councillor and deputy mayor for five years at Benalla. He was a foundation member of the Weary Dunlop Benalla Memorial Statue Committee raising enough money funds to build a life size statue of Weary Dunlop in his hometown. For 17 years after his retirement raised cattle out of Benalla. There is so much more to Brewer’s story, and he is still full on at 87. He speaks endearingly like so many others about the Probus organisation and is always looking to do something where he can "make a difference" and enhance the lives of others. His obvious happiness comes from “honesty and an active mind and body and fairness to all people”. Brewer epitomises the expectations of the 2009 Myer Foundation’s Towards 2020 study on aged care. He’s made an art form of being active. When asked, he lists the best footballers of the early 1960s as being Les Foote (North Melbourne), Ted Whitten (Footscray), Ron Barassi (Melbourne) and Thorold Merrett (Collingwood). The best peninsula footballers were Coleman (Hastings), Matthews (Chelsea), Alves (Edithvale Aspendale) did not play in his era.

Men’s shed open THE Safety Beach–Dromana Men’s Shed has been officially opened after two years of fundraising which saw Mornington Peninsula Shire give $57,000 and the federal government $26,000. The shed is at the Dromana Recreation Reserve near the community garden. “The shire is committed to supporting the development and operation of Men’s Sheds throughout the peninsula as a critical and important community resource,” Mornington Peninsula mayor Cr Bev Colomb said.

The sign outlines the history of the property which dates from the 1860’s. A detailed history can be read in an article about the property which appeared in the March, 2017 edition of Peninsula Essence. Spurred by

this article the Historical Society completed the project of having an historical marker erected to draw public awareness to this historic building and to acknowledge its significance to the district’s past.

Single lane ‘disaster’ A proposal to reduce Old Calder Highway through Keilor to one lane each way was opposed by VicRoads on the grounds that this section of road was an essential alternate route in the case of an emergency. This brought to mind Mornington Peninsula Shire’s fire refuges and the planned reduction of traffic lanes through Rye. With good reason it points out that the fire refuges are not guaranteed to save lives. Traffic jams are not uncommon at the Dromana shops because of cars backing into parallel parking spots. There is no way that cars can pass where there is only one lane each way. It is not hard to imagine a fire starting near Portsea and being fanned by a strong westerly. Practically every road on the peninsula is one lane and, if the road through Dromana can become gridlocked because of the occasional car parking, imagine the impact if a car stalled or an accident occurred on any of the Melbournebound lanes. Desperate drivers would use the other lane to get past; that is the lane being used by emergency vehicles speeding to the site of the fire. If this did not result in further accidents, it would certainly destroy any chance of containing the fire. The reduction of lanes is intended to make main roads safer for pedestrians to cross and, in our case, to promote tourism. If people were incinerated in gridlocked cars on our many one lane roads in a situation such as I have outlined, the council would go broke because of the devaluation of properties west of Jetty Rd, Rosebud. For a shire planner to state that lane closures would not be continuous through Rye staggers belief. The need to re-merge further up the road would just add to road rage and accidents. Ray Gibb, Rosebud.

Not single minded

Point Nepean Rd leading into Rye and out to Blairgowrie is a single lane. Presently it’s a double lane both sides (at 50 kph) through the Rye main strip with plans, apparently, for it to be changed to a single lane both sides at 40 kph. Most residents choke with laughter at the thought of through traffic in Rye under their new proposals [by Mornington Peninsula Shire]. Allow a minimum 15 minutes to escape the Rye car park from January to March and wear a face mask for secondary effects similar to passive smoking. Further, no street parking replaced by a bike path. Not that I can ride a bike (at 81) but wondering as to any bike parking, perhaps resting on the new trees to be planted? Further still, Campbell Lane (running parallel to Point Nepean Road behind the shops and which my unit backs onto) is to be upgraded with another bike lane and pop up shops and cappuccinos; peace and quiet a memory? Maybe [I should] acquire a gun licence and [make] a peephole in my fence? A 10 year planning process. I’ll surely expire before this disaster. Cliff Ellen, Rye

Free to decide Obviously, readers are free to make up their own minds about Victoria’s proposed assisted dying legislation. But it is not right to try to influence the minds of others with false statements and misinformation (“Survival a priority” Letters 26/9/17.) Here are some unbiased facts: The proposed legislation is not for euthanasia that means a doctor injecting a lethal substance. Instead, it would allow a doctor to prescribe a lethal dose for a dying patient who has repeatedly asked for it to hasten inevitable and painful death. It would be up to the patient when, where, or indeed if, they would swallow that dose. The Hippocratic injunction to “do no harm” is

construed differently by different people. Many people, including doctors, believe that to stand by and watch a patient suffering more and longer than they want is doing harm. With its 68 safeguards to protect abuse, the proposed Victorian act has been reported to be “the most conservative in the world”. Foremost is the provision that only requests from “capable” terminally ill patients will be considered. The doctors involved in assessing requests will be well qualified to judge capability. There will be severe penalties for coaxing or influencing people to apply. For those of us who may fear dying from dementia, this is not good news. But it’s certainly better than the present situation where, even with excellent palliative care, some peoples’ physical and mental suffering cannot be relieved, causing them to beg for death to be hastened. If you believe that God controls the time and nature of your dying, then you can draw up a legally-binding advance care directive in which you totally reject any medical action to hasten your death. But please do not deny others the right to choose differently. Anne Riddell, Mt Martha

with [Flinders MP] Federal Health Minister Greg Hunt then the incidence of this ghastly disease will continue to escalate. In 2014 there were 47 cases of this disease reported in Victoria. Since Daniel Andrews has become premier we now have 159 cases so far this year and counting.

Call for state aid

Speak out for dogs

I call on [Premier] Daniel Andrews and state Labor to drop the politics and properly fund an education and eradication program to rid Victoria of the devastating Bairnsdale ulcer once and for all. This matter has been raised over the last two years with the Victorian Health Minister [Jill Hennessy] as she has the primary responsibility for public health action, and to undertake ongoing and active surveillance and reporting of this disease. The core issue on the Mornington Peninsula has been misdiagnosis and the subsequent lack of early intervention for those who first present with symptoms. A shire wide education program among all health care professionals and community organisations is urgently needed as a first step. Unless the minister acts quickly and works

Seniors Festival October 8 - 31

Centre’s success in detecting skin cancers IN just 25 days of operation since opening in July, Rosebud Skin Cancer Centre has seen 730 patients and diagnosed 132 skin cancers. This includes 14 melanomas. Although there is increasing awareness in the community about the dangers of melanoma and importance of checking your skin, there is still confusion about the best way to do this. There have been giant leaps forward in the diagnosis of skin cancers in recent years, and RBSCC prides itself in delivering the best possible care for its patients. Every patient at RBSCC has a dedicated half-hour appointment and sees a nurse and a doctor, each looking them over head to toe with a dermatoscope, a specially designed handheld microscope. Using a dermatoscope in the diagnosis of skin cancers is so critical because even small, innocuous-looking moles can have obvious features of melanoma when examined under magnification. Last, and perhaps most importantly, every doctor at RBSCC has done extra training in skin cancer, and the majority work exclusively in skin cancer medicine. All of this translates into picking up skin cancers earlier, and in greater numbers. Please call 5986 1600 to make your appointment now.

Leaving your mark in the world with art MANY people are inspired by the number of historical and modern artworks that can be found at cemeteries and memorial parks, showcasing superb examples of craftsmanship, architectural and artistic styles, and botanical and landscape qualities. Dr Celestina Sagazio, Historian and Manager of Cultural Heritage at Southern Metropolitan Cemeteries Trust (SMCT), takes time out to explain the significance of art in cemeteries and describe two fine examples you can explore at Melbourne General Cemetery. “Cemeteries effectively reflect our values, customs, emotions and aspirations as individuals and as a society. This is why cemeteries can be appreciated as outdoor art galleries and museums replete with marble, granite, slate, iron and wooden creations. It’s not uncommon to see students of art and architecture among the monuments, where they find a huge number of stone sculptures such as angels, religious figures, and symbols such as draped urns, columns and obelisks. Such devices on monuments have long been created to commemorate our lives and leave our mark in the world in a creative and beautiful way. Outstanding examples of art are

found in cemeteries such as the iconic Melbourne General Cemetery. One such example is the substantial sculpture ‘Guardian Angel’, depicting St Michael the Archangel with his protective sword, on the grave of notable property owner Michael Dawson. It is one of the largest St Michael the Archangel sculptures in any cemetery in the world, making it easy to spot near it’s roadside position. It is not surprising to learn that this big sculpture has a big story attached to it. A fine sculptor of the period, Charles Summers, created ‘Guardian Angel’. The English-born Charles Summers was the most accomplished sculptor in Victoria by the 1860s. After a brilliant career in the Royal Academy schools, he migrated to Melbourne in 1852 for health reasons. He worked on the sculptural decoration in the new parliamentary chambers, and his masterpiece was the Burke and Wills statue installed in the city. According to Jennie Maggs, a direct descendant of Summers, the sculpture was one of his final works. Summers died in 1878 before the sculpture was installed. It was his son Charles Francis Summers, also a sculptor, who brought the large piece to Melbourne and erected it in the cemetery for the Dawson family in 1880.

Another fine sculpture in Melbourne General Cemetery is the metal weeping woman symbol, known as ‘Grief’, on the substantial grave of Sir Samuel Gillott. Gillott was a controversial lawyer and politician of the times, and Lord Mayor of Melbourne. He died in Sheffield, England after falling down the stairs at night and his body was returned to Melbourne for burial in the cemetery. ‘Grief’ was created by the renowned sculptor Charles Web Gilbert. The weeping woman was a common symbol in early cemeteries and was created in many different forms around the world. Any visit to the cemetery by art lovers should include an inspection of these two striking artworks, amongst others,” Dr Sagazio said. Inspired by the sound of art at cemeteries? Why not visit one of the eight cemeteries and memorial parks cared for by SMCT to discover more? From the historical Melbourne and Brighton General, St Kilda, Cheltenham and Springvale Botanical cemeteries to the more modern Bunurong and Cheltenham Memorial Parks, there’s lots to inspire your creative spirit.

100 YEARS AGO THIS WEEK...

Naval engineer survives two crashes in two days Compiled by Cameron McCullough MR R. Clark, engineer on one of the dredges at Naval Base, has the unique distinction of having experienced two motor cycle accidents on two successive days and not sustaining any serious injuries therefrom. On Saturday last, when travelling towards Frankston, at a fair pace, Mr Clark’s machine skidded and he was thrown heavily to the road injuring his left hand and head. On Sunday afternoon he resumed his journey to Melbourne, but his injured hand had swollen very much and Mr Clark found too late that it was powerless and he could not work the controls. The cycle dashed out of Mr Forster’s garage at high speed and struck the rockery in front of the Pier Hotel which effectively stopped the runaway. Mr Clark was thrown heavily. Mr Ryan, who was on duty in the vicinity, extricated the injured man and removed him to the Pier Hotel where it was found that the injuries were not serious. First aid was rendered by the Constable and Mr Clark is little worse for his double adventure. *** THE Hon. Treasurer of the Frankston and District Roll of Honor Fund gratefully acknowledges the receipt of £1 from Miss V. W. Mackay. The donation acknowledged last week was from Mr F. H. Wells, not H. G. Wells, as published. *** PARENTS and others interested in keeping up Flower Day on 2nd November at the Frankston State school are invited to a meeting to be held in the School Room on Monday evening

next to make preliminary arrangements. *** A MEETING will be held in the Seaford Hall on Monday 8th October, at 8pm, to elect a committee to arrange details for a concert and dance to be held in aid of the Melbourne Hospital Funds. People of Seaford and district are most respectfully asked to attend. Mr C. H. Ellis is convening the meeting. *** ON Wednesday 10th Oct at 3.30pm Messrs Harrey and Hill will offer for sale by auction at Morton and Sons auction rooms Queens Walk, Swanston St Melbourne, a 40 acre orchard and farm being portion of Messrs Thornell’s well known Somerville Nursery with new 4 roomed house and out buildings. *** THE anniversary services in connection with the Methodist Sunday School were held on Sunday last when Mr. Austin a teacher from the Wesley College Melbourne preached both morning and evening to a large congregation. On Monday evening a concert and coffee supper took place. The Rev. Tonkin occupied the chair and there was a very large attendance. The following programme was gone through after which the distribution of prizes to the scholars took place. *** THE promotion of Captain Conder (OC Langwarrin Military Camp) to the rank of Major, was gazetted on the 4th inst. Major Conder, who was severely wounded at the historic landing at Gal-

lipoli, has made wonderful improvements at Langwarrin Camp and we are pleased to note that the military authorities have recognised his splendid administrative work by well deserved promotion. *** THE “Australian” Club, under the patronage of Sir John and Lady Madden, and by permission of the State War Council, will entertain 150 returned wounded soldiers this Saturday Oct 6th in Mechanics’ Hall Frankston at 3pm. All who are interested are cordially invited. Allieti’s String Band, will play selections during the afternoon, also in the evening when a dance will be held in aid of returned soldiers. *** THE Somerville Presbyterian Ladies’ Guild have now completed their work and have a large and beautiful assortment of drapery which will be at the sale of gifts now being held. The Fair was opened by Rev N. Webster on Friday evening at 3pm and will open this (Saturday), afternoon at 3.30pm. All other denomination and societies are invited to attend. Quoit and nail driving competitions, shooting gallery, hoopla and numerous other attractions. *** WE regret to announce that, as the result of a serious and painful accident, Mr .G. E. Rogers, ironmonger of Frankston, is now an inmate of St Pancras private hospital. On Wednesday 3rd. inst, Mr Rogers was, engaged lopping the branches from a pepper tree in his front garden and, as his step ladder was too short,

had placed it on a large box. Unfortunately the whole structure toppled over and Mr Rogers was precipitated to the ground. The force of the fall broke the ladder in half. Dr Maxwell announced that the bone of the right leg had been broken below the knee and a blood vessel had also been badly injured. Mr Rogers is making satisfactory progress, according to latest reports. *** A FEW beautiful, bright, warm days introduces the first glimpse of spring and snakes seem to be very numerous. Notwithstanding this great peril, the brightness makes one and all feel as they are glad to have lived through such a terrible winter to breathe once more the gladness of spring. The Moorooduc Progress Association held their monthly meeting Saturday night when a very happy little crowd assembled and the main business was the procuring of an Honor Board, for which ample funds are available and this matter was left in the hands of the secretary to have carried out. Another little business that was before the meeting was a request from the local school committee to try and have the evening mail from Mornington to Moorooduc reinstated, but this did not receive much support. After business was settled the gathering held a most enjoyable dance and, the crowning event of the evening was a bonza supper provided by the lady members. *** TRUE Unto Death. Y.M.C.A Man’s Admiration For Cursing Tender Hearted Australians.

Not alone the distribution of free coffee, cakes, and cigarettes is the work and influence of the Young Mens Christian Association among Our Australian boys at the front. This is indicated in a letter just received from Mr N.W.Opie, military Secretary of the Australian Y. M. C. A with our soldiers abroad. “I have referred in my report”, he says, “to the point of contact with the men that my cricket team has given me. I find the fellows always ready after their first shyness to talk of their homes and loved ones and since I have been here many scores of photos have been proudly displayed to me. “What do you think of my girl?” “Seen this picture of my kiddie, cobber?” “This is my mother” and the love of these chaps for their home folks is unashamedly shown. And what a wonderful point of contact one gets with them just there. Men receiving a home mail will bail one up in a corner of the hut and tell of such a happening to the wife or such and such a wonderful thing the Kiddie has done. “You remember I showed you her photo last week?” Of course one does not always remember but never acknowledges forgetfulness. Oh these fighting men and boys of our Sunny Australia, cursing blasphemous often but tender of heart true to a pal to death itself. How one comes to love them and pray for their wakening to the beauty and desirability of the Great White Friend. *** From the pages of the Mornington Standard, 6 October 1917

THE MEANING OF EXISTENCE... AND OTHER SHORT STORIES

How to Support the Richmond Fan In Your Life By Stuart McCullough FOR all intents and purposes, I’m agnostic when it comes to football. Having been born into a family of Essendon supporters, I was ostracized by my father when, at age ten, I switched to Carlton. To this day, he describes this as one of the greatest betrayals ever to occur outside of wartime. His reaction was such that I began to suspect that I’d greatly underestimated the impact of making a switch. Given the drama it caused, I kind of went quiet on the subject until, eventually, I didn’t really barrack for anyone. It remains an absolute conversation killer. When someone I don’t know very well asks me who I barrack for, rather than a full-throated declaration of allegiance all they get for their trouble is a gentle sigh as I stare off wistfully into the middle distance. I start to recount my tale of woe and sporting infidelity and, by the time I turn back, the person who asked me the question has wandered off, in search of someone else for whom the question ‘who do you barrack for?’ is less complicated. But despite my stunning lack of commitment, I am surrounded by zealots. The rest of my family has no trouble nailing their colours to the mast. Unsurprisingly, they’re mostly Essendon supporters. The indoctrination process started early – almost immediately upon being born, various grandchildren have been swaddled in team colours. Jumpers, beanies and duffel coats – you name it, all manner of paraphernalia has been showered upon these children long before they ever had a chance to make a decision

PAGE 50

for themselves. I wouldn’t be surprised if the ‘Go Bombers’ were the first words some of them ever uttered. But in any family, there’s always someone who swims against the tide. Someone who is not for turning. In my family that person is my nephew, Noah. You see Noah is a Richmond supporter. More than that, Noah has always been a Richmond supporter, even in the face of almost every form

Southern Peninsula News 3 October 2017

of pressure short of UN sanctions. Despite all attempts by his grandfather to lure him away from Tiger land, Noah has remained steadfast. His loyalty is unshakeable. To put that into some kind of context, Noah has two older brothers, both of whom support Essendon. And during Noah’s fourteen years on the planet, his older brothers have seen their team experience more success.

It’s hard for me to understand. Given that I was willing to change teams to make play lunch easier, I can’t imagine the kind of fortitude it takes to stick with something no matter what. Noah is quiet. Noah is reserved. Noah doesn’t ever really rock the boat. Except, of course, when it comes to Richmond. Over the years, I’ve seen him transform from mild-mannered nephew to someone who will raise his hands to the gods and scream ‘why, oh why?’ when Richmond has squandered a lead and lost a game. Watching football is, for my nephew, a whole of body experience. For many years, Noah has been going to the football with my father. I know that my father enjoys it very much. While our house has always had its fair share of football paraphernalia, it was Noah who took it to an entirely new level. Not satisfied with a scarf or jumper, Noah purchased himself a hat with Richmond dreadlocks. My father was horrified. But despite the reluctance he undoubtedly felt, the pair of them traipsed off to the MCG – my father with his travel bag with a thermos of sugary tea and packet of chocolate biscuits (the menu hasn’t changed in fifty years) and Noah with his dreadlocks. If he wasn’t wearing his heart on his sleeve, then he was undoubtedly wearing it on his head. This year, I’ve watched as Noah has dared to dream. Each week, the grin has gotten broader and bigger. For the first time in his lifetime, Noah’s beloved team has won a final. But fate can be cruel, and this year is the first year in ages that my father hasn’t secured reserved seats at the grand final.

I’m sure it’s the case with Richmond fans everywhere. Thirty-five years is a long time, albeit not quite long enough to forgive someone for changing football teams from Essendon to Carlton. I suspect it feels as though the rest of life is on hold for a little while. It was hard to know what to do to support my nephew. I’d occasionally throw a ‘Go Tigers’ into our conversations and smile and nod politely whenever he suddenly yelled ‘yellow and black!’ as the mood struck him. I knew is that it was going to be a formative experience for my nephew. One that will either give him either a sweet taste of victory or be the kind of lesson in resilience that, while unwelcome, is still probably healthy. But either way I admire his commitment and the way in which he’s willing to be entirely devoted to something. Allegiances aside, the entire family kicked into gear. A roster was drawn up in the hope of securing Noah a ticket. The queuing at the MCG started the night before with Noah’s older brother taking a position outside the ground. He came ill-prepared (as is often the case with 18-year-olds), dressed in only shorts and t-shirt, and was lucky enough to befriend others in the queue who lent him a blanket. Another shift arrived at 6am, and then at 8am, Noah secured himself a hallowed ticket. Of course, the Tigers won the day. Noah was tickled pink. My father even stayed to the end (which he hates doing as he always wants to ‘beat the queue for the train’). What else is there to say. Go Tigers. Go Noah. It was a well-deserved win. stuart@stuartmccullough.com

A COLLECTION OF PORTRAITS The Mornington Peninsula Regional Gallery has over 1600 works in the collection from the 18th century through to the present day. It contains a selection of old master prints and drawings, modern works by Arthur Boyd, Russell Drysdale, Charles Blackman and a growing body of contemporary works by established and emerging artists. A strength of the collection is its focus on the cultural heritage of the Mornington Peninsula, which has been a haven and source of inspiration for artists since the 1850s, including Fred Williams and Albert Tucker. Two new exhibitions at MPRG celebrate works in the collection. Character Traits draws together over 60 portraits from the collection by artists such as Tom Roberts, Arthur Boyd, Fred Williams and Gareth Sansom. Artist Tom Polo will be researching the MPRG collection and painting a 13-metre wall painting. The public is invited to witness him working from Monday 25 September – Thursday 28 September. Tom Polo was a finalist in this year’s Sulman Prize and the winner of the 2015 Brett Whiteley Travelling Art Scholarship. Also on display from 28 September – 26 November is the National Portrait Gallery’s 2017 National Photographic Portrait Prize.

GET READY FOR THE BOOTLEG BEATLES Direct from London, THE BOOTLEG BEATLES, the world’s first and finest homage to the Fab Four will be performing at the Frankston Arts Centre on Sunday November 5. Now in their 37th year, THE BOOTLEG BEATLES have performed over 5,000 shows worldwide. Their stunning authenticity coupled with their musical credibility has seen them perform at some of the world’s best-known venues such as Wembley Stadium, the Royal Albert Hall, Knebworth, Glastonbury Festival and the Budokan Stadium in Tokyo, where The Beatles originally played. They also performed on “The Graham Norton Show” in London. The legendary English Record Producer/Arranger/Composer Sir George Martin, sometimes referred to as “the fifth Beatle”, said: “I enjoyed their act enormously”. Formed for the West End cast of the long-running Broadway musical “Beatlemania”, THE BOOTLEG BEATLES are truly the world’s No.1 tribute band have shared the Concert with the likes of Rod Stewart, Elton John, David Bowie, Iggy Pop, Seal, Simple Minds, Bon Jovi and they performed at Queen Elizabeth II’s Golden Jubilee celebration at Buckingham Palace. Noel and Liam Gallagher of Oasis asked them to be the support act for their record-breaking 1995 Earl’s Court Concerts, culminating with both bands sharing the stage for “I Am The Walrus”. THE BOOTLEG BEATLES re-create with

precision the hits and image with costumes reflecting The Beatles’ evolution, as well as from note to note using original instruments and with uncannily accurate vocals. Against a stunning video backdrop, they will be accompanied by a 9-piece orchestra, enabling them to faithfully re-create many of the songs The Beatles never played live on stage, such as “Eleanor Rigby”, “Penny Lane” and “All You Need Is Love”. THE BOOTLEG BEATLES are truly one of Britain’s most popular bands, with fans of all ages across the globe greeting their note-perfect performance with scenese of Beatle-like hysteria. The concert will feature renditions of the greatest songs from the entire Beatles catalogue. They faithfully re-create many of the hits the Beatles never performed live. Tickets available from Frankston Arts Centre. www.thefac.com.au or phone 9784 1051

PRINCE TRIBUTE HITS MORNINGTON Andrew De Silva from 90’s R&B sensation CDB and winner of Australia’s Got Talent, along with some of Australia’s finest touring stars lead a Purple Revolution. Celebrate life with music in loving memory of our Purple Prince. Whether you know Andrew as the Winner of Australia’s Got Talent 2012, or from the Multi-Platinum ARIA Award-Winning band CDB, or simply heard him sing with his acoustic guitar, well respected Producer/

Artist Andrew is the “real deal”. Humble, yet with a wealth of experience in the industry Andrew is a seasoned performer. Opening for mega stars like Mariah Carey (Etihad Stadium 2013), Boys II men (2012) and for Shaggy during his national tour (2015). Andrew’s versatility has recently seen him play the lead role in the hit production “Let’s Get It On” (The Life & Music Of Marvin Gaye). “Here’s one of Australia’s best talents...”

“It’s a deliciously lithe soul number, whelmed by Andrew’s superb vocal that taps the falsetto in his bag of tricks and the layering of the vocals is pretty sublime.” Andrew seems to have done it all & his live shows are not to be missed. A Tribute to Prince - Purple Revolution is heading to The Grand Hotel, Mornington, on 20 October Tickets at grand.oztix.com. au or www.grand.net.au

scoreboard New-look cricket launches this weekend SOUTHERN PENINSULA

By IT Gully THE new-look Mornington Peninsula Cricket Association season will launch this Saturday with four divisions set for 2017-18. The MPCA announced its new structure in May this year, however, a Presidents’ extraordinary meeting held a couple of weeks ago saw the names of the new four divisions changed. In May, the launched divisions were Premier, Provincial, District and Sub District. However, they were changed only last week to Provincial, Peninsula, District and Sub-District, in order of division one to division four. Peninsula Old Boys president Adam Jones was behind the name changes, which make sense. Jones branded the names of the new competition “stupid’’ and made moves to protect the history on the association. Jones wrote to the MPCA requesting the special general meeting which resulted in the name changes. He called 27 clubs, 25 of which supported his stance. In the 2017-18 season, cricket will be played on every weekend in October, November, December, January

and March; with the exception of two weeks in December for the Christmas break, as well as a weekend over Easter. Promotion-relegation will remain the same with the premiers being elevated in the following season and wooden-spooners dropping down. The major change to the competition is the number of one-day matches in the fixture. The first three rounds of the season are one-day fixtures and there are four more for the season. This is complemented with seven twoday matches. The grand finals will also be reduced to 80 overs to ensure the match is completed over one weekend. Bowlers will be restricted to eight overs in one-day games. The clubs in each division and some news coming into the first match of the day this Saturday: Provincial Peninsula Old Boys Crib Point Baxter Mornington Pearcedale Sorrento Langwarrin Mt Eliza

At Crib Point, Matt Blake is coaching the club and league legend Brad Glenn has taken the reigns as director of coaching. Sam Weisse has returned to Mornington from Frankston-Peninsula, while Langwarrin has seen the return of Andy Johnson and the recruitment of former Heatherhill and Flinders middle-order bat Simon Parrott. Pearcedale is looking at some improvement from talented youngsters Declan Scully and Riley Bradshaw, while Kaine Smith and Chris Dew remain in charge. Bobby Wilson remains in charge at Sorrento and they have landed Sri Lankan fast bowler and middle order bat Chathupama Gunasinghe (45 first class wickets). Lyle House and Justin Grant are in charge again at Mt Eliza and Baxter has a mate of Chamika Sattambi joining the club who will be a handy acquisition. Peninsula Red Hill Somerville Delacombe Park Flinders Long Island Moorooduc

Pines Main Ridge The recruitment of Jayde Herrick to Somerville is the biggest get in the offseason. Riley Shaw has returned from Mt Martha to Red Hill, which is a handy get, Ricky Ramsdale will be hoping to go one better with Delacombe Park, Aaron Paxton is the club skipper at Long Island and Adrian Mack returns to where it all began at Pines, replacing Craig Entwhistle. Nick Jewell will play and coach at Main Ridge and Shamith Kannangara is the skipper at Moorooduc, which will see a number of Sri Lankans land at the club this season. District Baden Powell Mt Martha Hastings Long Island Seaford Seaford Tigers Heatherhill Rosebud Rye Grant Hanrahan is senior coach at Mt Martha while Riley Shaw returns to Red Hill. Hastings will be without an injured

Luke Hewitt (knee reconstruction), Tommy Baron continues to lead Rye. Rosebud will welcome an opening quick from Sri Lanka and Seaford Tigers’ Corey Hand has returned to Carrum. Sub District Dromana Balnarring Carrum Carrum Downs Skye Tyabb Tootgarook YCW Ballam Park Boneo Jack Fowler and Keiran Voelkl will continue to run the show at Dromana. Mal Coutts has left Langwarrin for a coaching stint at Balnarring, Corey Hand returns to Carrum, Mark Snelling remains in charge at Carrum Downs, and Scott Blaycock is coaching Skye. Tyabb welcomes the return of Brodie Bennett, Ballam Park is looking for improvement from Luke Janssen and Boneo has picked up Corey Peterson from Traralgon, while an English keeper-batsman is expected to land soon.

AFLSE moves on stage one of footy restructure By Toe Punt AFL South East has succeeded in executing stage one of its grand plan for divisional football throughout the region, restructuring the Nepean and Peninsula competitions last Friday. As was predicted months ago, all 22 clubs were informed last Friday that Mornington Peninsula Nepean Football League divisions will be restructured in 2018. Chelsea, Karingal and Langwarrin drop from Peninsula to Division Two

PAGE 58

and Frankston Bombers, Sorrento and Rosebud elevate from Nepean to Division One. In 2019, AFL South East plans to restructure again, introducing a third division, Premier, and bringing in South East Football Netball League clubs, which includes Cranbourne, Berwick, Beaconsfield and others. It is believed that all but five clubs (Edithvale-Aspendale, Langwarrin, Pines, Mornington, Tyabb) do not support a further restructure and will continue its fight against the move.

Southern Peninsula News 3 October 2017

In determining which clubs should be selected to compete in Division 1, AFL South East Regional General Manager John Anderson said the following considerations were made: n Recent playing performances n Playing depth n Junior pathway including viability of U19’s and junior club pathways n Club facilities, and n The results of a recent survey conducted by MPNFL Clubs Regardless of the considerations, both Rosebud and Sorrento believe

they will struggle given the Buds have had no Under 17s for the past two seasons and Sorrento has had no Under 16s or 17s. However, there is little question that there is overwhelming support for divisional football between MPNFL clubs. The current salary cap of $150,000 will be applied to both divisions next season with the intention of re-evaluating and working towards a reduction in 2019. The total team points will be reset at 39 points with

further communication to clubs in coming weeks. Mr Anderson said that this announcement heralds an exciting new era for football in the region. “While I look forward to seeing the top 10 clubs competing against each other, I am even more keen to see clubs which have struggled in recent years get the opportunity to be more competitive and potentially participate in finals in 2018,” Mr Anderson said.

Grand Final glory for Southern United girls SOCCER

By Craig MacKenzie SOUTHERN United’s all-conquering under-13s capped a stellar season with a 2-0 Grand Final victory over Calder United at ABD Stadium in Meadow Heights on Sunday. Southern had clinched the NPLW championship some weeks earlier but had lost the qualifying final 1-0 to Calder. “We told the girls if we didn’t match them physically especially in the first five minutes that they would own us so we told them to go shoulder to shoulder and be very physical but don’t foul,” said Southern head coach Emma Bracken. “We wanted to show them that we weren’t going to get pushed off the ball.” Southern’s intent was clear from the outset and in the opening exchanges Southern right winger Danica Vukcevic made it clear that if anyone was going to be bundled off the ball it was her opponent. “I thought Danica was outstanding and I’m not just talking about her work on the ball but her desire, throwing her body in time and time again,” said assistant coach Aaron Myatt. Bracken and Myatt had decided to start Golden Boot winner Rhys McKenna on the left wing with usual winger Candy Kilderry playing in the central striker’s role. In the qualifying final Calder had double-teamed McKenna with a holding midfielder dropping deep but now it had to change its plans. To add to Calder’s unease the Southern pair were given licence to switch their roles without instruction from their coaches so that the Calder bench couldn’t hear and react immediately. McKenna forced Calder keeper Keara Califiore into a fine save low down at her near post in the 6th minute and in the 12th minute Kilderry bobbed up on the left but shot wide. Calder’s first main threat came in the 23rd minute when striker Olivia De La Plaza-Sanchez burst clear inside the area but Southern central defender Alex Jones intercepted superbly. Bracken and Myatt swung the second part of their plan into action at half-time switching Taylah Hennekam into central midfield as they had done to good effect in the preliminary final against Bayside United the previous week. Talia Palmer came on at left back, Emily Ryan switched from left to right back and Ezel Duyar linked with

Grand feeling: Southern United under-13s, 2017 champions and premiers. Picture: Darryl Kennedy Jones in central defence. The breakthrough came five minutes into the second half when a McKenna corner was played back to her by Alessandra Davis at the near post and McKenna’s second cross was headed home by Hennekam after Califiore couldn’t stop the ball from wriggling out of her grasp and crossing the line. Calder had a mountain to climb in the 42nd minute after a Hennekam shot was blocked and fell to Kilderry who hammered a left-foot strike high into the net to make it 2-0. By now the champions were in full flight and a sweeping move in the 47th minute involving Davis, McKenna and Kilderry deserved a better ending but McKenna couldn’t control Kilderry’s cross from the left. In the final analysis Southern established its credentials as the best under-13 side in the elite competition in emphatic fashion. “I thought the defence was unbelievable and Caddy (Vakacavu) had a great game in goal,” said Bracken. “She struggled in the first half of the season with coming off her line but it just seems to have clicked with her in the last few weeks and she has the tools to go further.” In other news recently appointed Langwarrin technical director Ste-

appointment of Doug Hodgson as under-15s head coach. Hodgson played with Pines as a junior and his senior career was highlighted by his time at Heidelberg United and his professional career with Sheffield United, Plymouth Argyle, Burnley, Oldham Athletic and Northampton Town in England. His career ended prematurely when he suffered a serious neck injury at the age of 29 and he became the first Australian to coach professionally in England when he was appointed reserve team manager at Sheffield United. Hodgson holds a UEFA B coaching licence and recently coached Mornington’s under-14A side to the state title. “The NPL is a great opportunity for kids all over the peninsula to find a development pathway outside of community football and there are kids out there that will need to be challenged to see if they are capable of taking the next step forward,” said Hodgson. “That’s the part of the game I really enjoy – helping a kid to fulfil their dreams – and on a personal level I want to put something back into a game that has been very good to me.” One of two under-12 squads will be coached by Andy Duckett, who has had two seasons at Bentleigh Greens

phen Fisher has been a busy man as the club gears up for its first venture into NPL ranks. Fisher has been overseeing the interview process for a raft of coaching appointments and last week Frankston Pines assistant Kevin “Squizzy” Taylor was named coach of Langy’s under-20s, which will be the club’s reserves team squad. Taylor was one of five applicants for the position and is well known in local circles having played for Langwarrin, Mornington, Seaford United and Frankston Pines. He won two promotions as senior coach of Seaford and in 2015 he won the Under-20s championship with Bentleigh Greens in his first year as an NPL coach. Taylor holds an AFC B coaching licence and was the preferred choice of long-serving Langy senior coach Gus Macleod who will be in charge for the 20th straight season. Langy’s 2017 championship-winning reserves coach Ronnie Whitton has been appointed as an assistant to Macleod alongside Robert Mathieson (junior) while Robert Mathieson senior retains the team manager’s role. Chris Jones is goalkeeping coach and Peter Tuckett will again be the club’s fitness advisor. The club also announced the

while Langy continues to negotiate with a candidate for the second under-12 post. Gary Brisbane will be in charge of the under-13s and Don Delaney will be in charge of the under-14s. Delaney coached Springvale White Eagles’ under-13s to a third-placed finish this season. The under-16s senior coach is Michael van der Zvet who joins after three successful seasons as a junior coach at Bentleigh Greens. Meanwhile Paul Williams has been re-appointed senior coach at Frankston Pines with Lee Davies as an assistant and reserves coach. Pines’ presentation night will be held at its Monterey Reserve clubrooms on Saturday 7 October starting at 7.30pm. Irish goalkeeper Colin McCormack did the double at Peninsula Strikers winning the players’ player of the year award and the senior best and fairest. Hayden Taylor followed suit winning the reserves players’ player of the year award and the reserves best and fairest. Aiden McKenna was the senior rising star and Callum Mitchell was the reserves rising star. Strikers’ search for a senior coach has narrowed to a field of five and the club is expected to make an announcement later this week. Skye United defender John Andrinopoulos has won the players’ player of the year award with captain Mark O’Connor runner-up. The reserves players’ player of the year was Daniel Jones and Lawrence Komba was runner-up. Senior coach Billy Armour has been re-appointed for 2018 as has reserves coach Liam George. The club hopes to retain the services of Billy Rae as senior assistant. Skye will hold its senior presentation night on Saturday 28 October at Patterson Lakes Community Centre starting at 7pm. Skye also is running a summer skills program from Thursday 9 November to Tuesday 7 December and from Tuesday 16 January to Tuesday 6 February for boys and girls aged five to 16. Carlo Cardoso has won Rosebud Heart’s senior best and fairest award with Cory Osorio runner-up. Cardoso also won the players’ player of the year award with goalkeeper Sean Skelly runner-up. At the recent AGM Tracy Reilly became Heart’s first female president with Jason Symonds re-elected vicepresident.

“World class athlete” signs as lifesaving coach By Ben Triandafillou CURRENT World Iron Woman and Nutri Grain series champion, Harriet Brown, will join the Mornington Life Saving Club as their new Water Coach and Youth Mentor next month. After saying goodbye to the club’s previous coach, John Vains, the Mornington Life Saving Club has designed their next phase of their coaching structure to help their athletes continue to develop and have a mentor under which they can thrive. Mornington Life Saving Club Nipper captain Damian Brice said the club’s main focus is to encourage participation and having someone like Brown gives the Nippers someone to look up to. “We felt Harriet was the right fit for the Mornington Life Saving Club as she is not only a world class athlete and coach, but an enthusiastic motivator and the type of role model that will add enormous value to the lives of our children,” Brice said. “Harriet has a genuine interest in wanting to get to know all of our kids and make a real difference in how they train and help to deliver

on the outcomes they are aiming to achieve individually and as a group.” Following the appointment of Brown, the club has worked together to design a program that utilizes face to face sessions, a feedback and review package and a range of social initiatives that will provide their members with consistent opportunities to develop and interact. The club has also appointed Matt McConnell as Club Coach to assist Brown in executing the program. While Brown will design and oversee the program, McConnell will make sure it is executed on a weekly basis with the assistance of the club’s Age Manager team and their under16s and above instructors. Brice said that McConnell has been a long term and high respected Age Manager who has great knowledge on how to read the surf, so he’ll be perfect for the role. The first Nipper session for the season starts on Sunday 12 November, 10am at Mills Beach. For further details go to morningtonlsc.com.au. Picture: sls.com.au

Centenary Cup draws historic clubs SOME of the oldest bowling clubs on the Mornington Peninsula gathered for the Mornington Bowling Club’s ‘Centenary Cup’ on Thursday 7 September. In celebration of the Mornington Bowling Club’s 100th anniversary, the Sorrento, Rosebud, City of Frankston, Mornington Civic and Mt Martha bowls clubs entered teams into the inaugural event which was held at the Mornington Bowling Club. Each club entered four teams into the two day event, but fittingly it was Mornington that raised the ‘Centenary Cup’ trophy which was presented by club president Ray Metherell and sponsoring partner Kayn Luff. The overall winning team with the highest aggregate over the two days was the Mornington side consisting of Trevor Roberts, David Pumpa, Neil Hayes, and Martin Cheeseman. The first day was won by Mt Martha while the second day was taken out by Sorrento. The event is set to run annually to provide the oldest bowls clubs on the peninsula (Sorrento, Rosebud, City of Frankston and Mornington) with a competitive meeting each year.

Golf club has the “most potential in Australia” By Ben Triandafillou A FORMER Australian professional golfer regards the Mornington Golf Club as the “club with the most potential in Australia”. Mark Allen, who played competitively for 15 years, told the 1116 SEN listeners on Saturday 16 September that the club “has the potential to be something out of this world” with the right amount of funding. The Mornington Golf Club has seen an increase in memberships of nearly 30 per cent since 2015 and this Saturday 7 October they will take their

first step in reaching this “potential” when they open their new 150-metre par three. The land which was once covered in trees and overgrown plantation has taken 18 months to transform into an intriguing hole which now boasts views of the Port Phillip Bay and the city’s skyline. The development has cost less than $100,000 with most of the work being done in house by the club’s course superintendent, Kevin Toebelman, and his team of five full time staff as well as a group of retired members called “Dads Army” who continue to give

Strategy on grass in celebration of Seniors Week IN celebration of Seniors Week, the Mornington Croquet Club is holding an open day with games to watch and coaching sessions on Wednesday 11 October. Croquet is a fascinating game that offers the opportunity of joining in with other people, male and female, on an equal

PAGE 60

footing. It is played all year. Golf croquet has gained huge popularity in recent years. It is a form of the game which allows the beginner to understand the form and basic rules in just a few games. It involves gentle exercise over flat lawns while at the same time requiring strategic thinking.

Southern Peninsula News 3 October 2017

The club coaching team headed by Colin Martin encourages people to come to the venue at Civic Reserve Mornington. A croquet mallet will be available for each participant to be used on the day. Flat footwear is essential. To book a free session phone Lynn / Rob on 5975 1041.

up their time each week to help out the club. Mornington Golf Club general manager, Craig Murdoch, said that with the hole receiving such rave reviews we are confident that it will be remembered by members and visitors as one of the best holes on the golf course. “The club is ecstatic about the hole and can’t wait to play it,” Murdoch said. The par three will not only be a major attraction at the club but will also work as a ‘spare hole’ allowing developments to continue on course while

golfers have an undisrupted play. This is just the first phase in the Mornington Golf Club’s master plan with stage two commencing soon. It will involve the relocation of the ninth and 18th greens along with a larger practice putting green and a new 10th tee. “Very exciting things are happening at Mornington Golf Club and with the improvements that have been made and are planning on being made, it really is becoming one of the most progressive clubs on the peninsula,” Murdoch said.
