Junior rangers have ramblin’ on their minds

PARKS and reserves throughout the southern Mornington Peninsula are holding free winter holiday activities for children. Parks Victoria’s Junior Rangers Program is designed to provide outdoor adventures instead of online games. “Studies show that kids need nature in their lives. It’s good for their mental and physical health and wellbeing, and it’s a great stimulation for learning about the world and the environment too. Our Junior Ranger programs help kids make life-long connections with nature and their local environment,” Parks Victoria chief ranger southern peninsula Kris Rowe said. The holiday program run by Parks Victoria rangers for children aged 6–12 years includes activities at Point Nepean National Park, Cape Schanck Lighthouse Reserve, Collins First European Settlement Site, Coolart Wetlands and Historic Homestead and Mushroom Reef Marine Sanctuary, Flinders. The activities run from 3 July to 16 July. Book for the winter junior ranger program at www.juniorrangers. com.au. Children must be accompanied by an adult. Or call 13 1963 or visit www.parks.vic.gov.au Holiday outlook: Volunteer Dale Dikker, Parks Victoria’s Tash Wicks with Clementine Rowe (red jumper) and Tarme Simnett at Cape Schanck lighthouse.

Demand for ‘party house’ action Stephen Taylor steve@mpnews.com.au ONE in four complaints about noise made to Mornington Peninsula Shire Council relate to so-called “party houses”.

manager John Rankine says those affected should call the police. If the problem is regular the shire will contact property owners and check sound levels, record complaints, collect witness statements, make inspections and possibly prosecute. The Melbourne-based We Live Here group is pushing for tougher rules on the letting of holiday houses over social media (“Tougher rules bid for party houses” The News 13/6/17).

In some cases, party-goers have ruined residents’ weekends with late-night noise and alcohol-fuelled aggression. Neighbours of one Rye holiday house – rented out for a reported $800 a night several times last year – say noisy parties and inebriated partygoers often make their weekends a nightmare. The practise is expected to grow as more people flock to online short-stay rental sites, such as Airbnb, Stayz, and Booking.com.

The shire’s environment protection manager John Rankine said party noise was a difficult issue to deal with as it was sporadic and varied in frequency and duration. “Complaints of noise in Mt Eliza are currently being investigated, with a report from one neighbour indicating that the problem has reduced,” he said. Mr Rankine recommends that residents call the police to respond immediately to late night party noise.

Shire call-up against planning changes Mike Hast mike@mpnews.com.au MORNINGTON Peninsula Shire is enlisting peninsula community groups in its campaign to oppose state government planning changes. The changes include allowing developers to build three-storey houses up to 11 metres high in 10 towns – Capel Sound (formerly Rosebud West), Rosebud, Dromana, Mt Martha, Mornington, Baxter, Somerville, Tyabb, Hastings and Bittern. Developments can occur with no notifications or rights of appeal. Shire planning services manager David Bergin has emailed community groups stating: “The change to the General Residential Zone (GRZ) … presents a significant risk of inappropriate development on the peninsula. “To protect our townships from inappropriate development and the negative impact of these state planning changes, the council has sought to introduce an interim Design and Development Overlay to ensure development is not inconsistent with the role and character of … townships.” He said the DDO would limit heights to nine metres and two storeys. Mr Bergin included four addresses in his email and encouraged groups to write to “relevant decision makers” and “reiterate the special character of the Mornington Peninsula and why threestorey houses are not appropriate”. The addresses were for planning minister Richard Wynne, his chief of staff Peter Keogh, Department of Environment, Land, Water and Planning acting secretary Christine Wyatt, and upper house Labor MP Daniel Mulino. In other developments, shadow planning minister David Davis stated that if the Liberal-Nationals Coalition was elected in 2018 it would unwind the changes. “We are at serious risk at the moment. The Plan Melbourne Refresh and VC110, the planning amendment that accompanied it, strips away many of the protections that were put in place” to preserve the Neighbourhood Residential Zone (NRZ) and General Residential Zone (GRZ). Mr Davis said it was clear that the government was “seeking to ignore the peninsula-specific planning protections that were put in place in 2014, that try to treat the peninsula as a distinct and unique zone that needs its own protections”. His views were supported by Russell Joseph, Liberal candidate for Nepean (which covers the southern peninsula) and electorate office manager for current Nepean MP Martin Dixon. Mr Joseph said the previous Coalition government “strengthened controls protecting residential neighbourhoods across Victoria”. “Protecting the peninsula from suburban overdevelopment was why the Coalition government

introduced the localised planning statement when Matthew Guy was planning minister.” Last week The News reported that Professor Michael Buxton told a meeting in Hastings that the state government intended to privatise the entire planning system, and a tender had been let to rewrite all documentation. Planning minister Richard Wynne’s press secretary Patrick Lane stated in an email: “There is no suggestion whatsoever the government has an intention to privatise the planning system, nor that a tender had been let to rewrite all documentation.” After this email, Mr Lane was asked to provide details, refute other statements made by Professor Buxton, and explain the government’s planning changes but did not respond. Christine Haydon of Peninsula Speaks, which co-hosted the Hastings meeting, said people who had registered would receive a kit containing a petition and short summary of the issues. “We’re encouraging people to become ‘Peninsula Protectors’, and aiming to collect 10,000 signatures on a petition for the Parliament,” she said. Residents also would be encouraged to write to MPs. A marketing committee was being assembled, and residents with social media expertise were being sought. Details: info@peninsulaspeaks.org.au

Executive leaves MORNINGTON Peninsula Shire’s chief operating officer Alison Leighton has resigned after being appointed CEO of Baw Baw Shire. “I speak for everyone at the shire in wishing Alison all the best in her new role and thank her for the high quality of service and commitment she provided to our council, the community and to our staff over the past 12 years,” peninsula CEO Carl Cowie said. Ms Leighton joined the shire in 2004 and was corporate strategy and projects manager and infrastructure strategy manager before being named infrastructure director in September 2014. She was COO since July 2015 and was responsible for 700 staff and 250 contractors and a $1.7 billion infrastructure portfolio.

New chair for board PENINSULA Health’s board has a new chairperson – Diana Heggie, who replaces Nancy Hogan. Ms Heggie was one of nine Victorian health service board “chairs” appointed by the state government last week. Her previous roles included president of National Heart Foundation (Victoria). Ms Heggie’s LinkedIn profile lists her other roles as director of Toorak College, chair of Toorak College fundraising committee, director of Abbotsford Convent Foundation, and foundation board member of the Heidi Museum of Modern Art.

under Rye pier. Ms Hirschfield said the group had almost 800 members. Rays were now protected in Western Australia and it was hoped Victoria and other states would follow suit, she said. “Rays provide benefits to both natural and human-made underwater ecosystems where they perform vital filtration services to maintain habitat health, which will benefit all water users. “Many recreational fishers, charter companies and fishing identities have publicly expressed their support of our position after seeing disturbing photo and video evidence.” Fisheries Victoria said it would provide additional education and enforcement initiatives, including signs on piers that attract rays. Public consultation runs until 14 August. Email responses to stingray.consultation@ ecodev.vic.gov.au Project Banjo details: projectbanjoactiongroup@gmail.com

FISHERIES Victoria has called for public comment on proposed new rules to reduce the killing of stingrays, skates and guitarfish but an action group wants killing completely banned. Fisheries is proposing cutting the bag limit from five rays a day a person to one; a 400-metre exclusion zone around human-made structures including jetties, piers and break walls; and a ban on killing rays over 1.5 metres wide. The 800-member Project Banjo action group, led by Safety Beach resident and scuba diver PT Hirschfield, says the changes “would be a move in the right direction” but the group wanted a complete ban on taking rays. The group’s move to ban killing gained traction on social media when Ms Hirschfield posted photos of a mutilated ray under Rye pier earlier this year. A petition launched in April garnered more than 28,000 signatures. Ms Hirschfield was interviewed in The News of 18 April (“Cruel end for ‘puppies’ of the sea”) about the killing of a smooth ray, which “lived”

Rescue squad’s milestone A DISPLAY of early photographs, newspaper articles, equipment and stories will help mark the 50th anniversary of the formation of the Southern Peninsula Rescue Squad. During its 50-year history the squad has provided aerial and marine search and rescue services free of charge to the community. All its members are volunteers. “We are particularly looking for photographs of early SPRS rescue boats and would also be pleased hear from anyone who was a member in the early days,” president Eileen Murray said. “We are also looking for previous members’

names and contact details so that we can send them an invitation to our function later this year. “Perhaps some of them may be able to share a story or two.” The squad sold its rescue helicopter in 2010 and, after being based at Sorrento for 43 years, accepted a generous offer to relocate to a new building at the Blairgowrie Yacht Squadron in December 2012. It now operates two purpose-built rescue vessels which are berthed at Blairgowrie marina. Those with memorabilia are asked to call Ms Murray, 0458 143 041.

No butts, shoppers asked to support e-cigs Stephen Taylor steve@mpnews.com.au FOUR collectors in white and red “Legalise vaping” t-shirts were approaching shoppers at Balnarring Shopping Centre last week seeking signatures for a petition to support the use of electronic cigarettes (ecigarettes). The collectors were overheard telling shoppers that vaping was “proven to be the most popular and effective aid to quitting smoking”. Submissions close on Thursday to an inquiry by the Standing Committee on Health, Aged Care and Sport called in May by Health Minister and Flinders MP Greg Hunt into the use and marketing of e-cigarettes and personal vaporisers. Tobacco companies have bought into the market by buying some smaller producers and health professionals say they are concerned that the use of e-cigarettes will lead young users to make the switch to tobacco. Vaping – through e-cigarettes or personal vaporisers – consists of a battery device with an attached atomiser. A battery-powered coil vaporising the liquid for inhalation. Supporters say vaping can be done with or without nicotine. The device is said to provide the “nicotine that smokers crave without the deadly tar and particles that smoking generates”. Quit Victoria director Dr Sarah White said it was unlawful to sell and possess e-cigarettes containing nicotine. “Non-nicotine e-cigarettes, which

come in a range of colours and flavours, can be lawfully sold in some states and territories,” she said. “New laws due to come into effect in Victoria on 1 August will ban ecigarette sales to children, ban advertising and promotion of e-cigarettes at point-of-sale, and prevent e-cigarettes being smoked in smoke-free areas. “A comprehensive review of all published studies shows there is low-to-very-low” evidence that ecigarettes help people quit.” An online campaign to legalise the practice says: “In the US, Canada, New Zealand, UK and EU, vaporisers

are helping millions to stop smoking and improve their health. But, in Australia, these life-saving devices are banned from sale. This is unacceptable and is putting hundreds of thousands of lives at risk.” Further, the campaign claims: “According to the Royal College of Physicians, vaping is at least 95 per cent safer than smoking. Studies also suggest that, when it comes to quitting, vaporisers offer a 60 per cent higher chance of success over simply going cold turkey. Sweden has one of the world's lowest smoking rates – just five per cent thanks to a harm reduc-

One shopper told The News the collectors were “well-drilled in their lines; they can quote from officialsounding medical authorities but, when pressed, they admit they’re British bodies who recommend vaping!” Balnarring Village Shopping Centre development manager Con Alevras said the petitioners did not have the centre’s permission”.

Good old days: Margaret Stewart and David Dallas with the Wobbly Walkers book. Picture supplied

Thirty years on shanks’s pony THIRTY years ago, Margaret Stewart and three of her friends decided after a game of tennis at her Sorrento home that they would add a weekly walk to their activities to get even fitter. They were soon joined by their husbands and then a few friends. Things snowballed and soon there was a sizeable walking group that became known as the Wobbly Walkers. Nowadays there are 50 in the group and they walk at more than 80 places on the peninsula. The Wobblies also have regular weeks away throughout Victoria as well as social events. Members celebrated 30 years last Thursday at a lunch at Portsea Golf Club. A book about the group was launched, too. The 30 Year Wobble – The Story of the Wobbly Walkers has been

written by David Dallas, and was launched by fellow member Barry Nicholls, former chairman of Peninsula Health. Margaret Stewart was to have been the guest of honour but ill health kept her at home, the same place where she and her friends played tennis three decades ago. Mr Dallas visited the nonagenarian Mrs Stewart last Friday and gave her a copy. Footnote: Mrs Stewart’s son is Warwick Fairlie who with his wife Helen ran the Sorrento business Stringers Store for many years until retiring recently. It is the iconic 1888 limestone building at the bayside end of Ocean Beach Rd. The business is for sale.

Longboarders’ two decades on the waves SURFERS who have been part of the 20-year history of the Maladiction Longboarders are getting ready for a reunion in October. The club started with members riding longboards, or malibu boards, when most of their surfing colleagues’ feet were firmly planted on something shorter than the minimum nine foot and a bit. (Surfers are among the last identifiable socio group to more frequently use imperial measure - feet and inches - rather than metric). Most Maladiction contests are held on reef breaks at The Pines, Shoreham, although small swells will see them relocated to beach breaks at Gunnamatta or Rye. They have also rallied to raise money for the Disabled Surfers Association Mornington Peninsula branch. Club president Greg Lloyd said the “gala evening” at Mornington Golf Club would commemorate the 20th anniversary of the club. “Maladiction was formed in 1997 by a group of local surfers in response to the growing popularity and re-emergence of longboarding in Australia and around the world,” Lloyd said. “They started the club to cater for Longboarding on the peninsula by establishing competitions and a social scene for surfers of all ages, gender and abilities. With the re-emergence of retro boards, we've now extended membership to retro boards. “We are not a locals only club and many of our members travel from around the state for our events, with

everyone keeping in touch via the website and our Facebook group. “We are all about going surfing, making new friends, having fun, being part of a club and encouraging young surfers whenever possible.” Lloyd said there was an “open invitation” for past and current Maladiction members, their families and sponsors to attend the dinner. For details email greg@surfstoked.com.au

Market auction cleans up A POP-UP auction during last week’s Wednesday market at Mornington raised $1300 for Clean as Casper mobile showers, a charity which provides a mobile shower service for homeless people. Auctioneer Andy Reid believes it was “the world’s first” pop-up charity auction. It took Mr Reid, of freelance auctioneers SoldBy Auctions, just 20 minutes to auction framed packs of action cards featuring Richmond’s Dustin Martin, Geelong’s Patrick Dangerfield and former Collingwood champion Dane Swan. Clean as Casper was started in 2015 by Steve and Adele Winterton after Steve had been a volunteer with Orange Sky Laundry, a mobile laundry for the homeless. Mr Reid his charity auction “concept” was aimed at helping charities “raise some money without having to put huge amounts of effort in”.

Jenny Angliss-Goodall. Picture: Keith Platt

JENNY Angliss-Goodall is the new president of the Disabled Surfers Association Mornington Peninsula branch. Ms Angliss-Goodall has been involved in the DSAMP since its inception in late 2011, often putting up her hand to try out any new equipment, whether for use in the surf or a wheelchair for the beach. Earlier this year she was one of the first wheelchairs to use specialised plastic matting laid across the beach to the water’s edge near Mt Martha Lifesaving Club. Ms Angliss-Goodall, of Mornington, was born with arthrogryposis multiplex congenital (AMC), a condition that sees two or more joints become permanently fixed (bent or straight) before birth, leading to underdeveloped muscles and curved hands. She says her vision for the DSAMP remains the same as that of the national organisation’s wish to “keep putting smiles on dials”. “We want to take people surfing and have a safe and happy day out at the beach with their family and friends, just like the rest of society. Many of these people are doing something they’ve never done before in their lives. It’s all about access.” Angliss-Goodall sees a boardwalk planned at Point Leo to allow people in wheelchairs to reach the beach as “the icing on the cake”. “No matter what situation you are in or who you are, you should have complete access to what I call the good things in life.” Also elected the DSAMP’s executive committee for the next year at the annual general meeting were vice-president Matt Drysdale, treasurer Bec Lipsett, secretary Bill Hallett and committee president Angus Rendall. “The DSAMP committee, to my knowledge, is one of the biggest and most diverse committees in the country,” outgoing president Ashley Gardner said. “This is our greatest strength different views, ages, and skill sets lends itself to healthy debate but also a well balanced and functioning committee. Again, the one thing in common is it's all about the surfers experience and looking after our volunteers.” Keith Platt n See “The surfers’ new driving force” in the July edition of Peninsula Essence magazine.

Effort rewarded: Alexander Dietzel and the awards he received for his efforts in raising autism awareness while at Dromana Secondary College. Picture: Yanni

Raising autism awareness earns award for student DROMANA Secondary College student Alex Dietzel has received a senior VCAL student achievement award for his personal development skills. He is the first student from the college to receive the award. His success came from his efforts in raising awareness and understanding of people on the autism spectrum. The judges said he showed “great independence and drive” in leading three other students, also passionate about the issue, to plan, organise and run a community awareness campaign on autism. Alex – who was school captain last year – presented detailed plans to principal Alan Marr to obtain permission to run events to raise awareness. He planned and organised a student-led sports day with the Peninsula Specialist College and arranged for fruit to be donated by a local fruit shop as part of the event. He also organised a guest speaker from the I Can Network to talk to the VCAL students about autism. He and his team also organised a school free-dress day to raise awareness for autism. Alex led the team in writing a proposal to the school council to gain permission, prepared promotional posters around the school and made ribbon pins for teachers and years 11 and 12 students to show their support. On the day, Alex’s group raised $984 for the I Can Network, the highest amount raised by the school for a free-dress day. The judges agreed Alex had shown “great ambition, work ethic and drive for his project to raise understanding and awareness of autism”.

As school captain, he also helped organise and promote other projects, including the 26 kilometre Two Bays hike from the Cape Schanck Lighthouse through to Dromana, in which he also participated. Although he has now left the college, Alex still fundraises for the I Can Network and hopes to complete the Two Bays hike for a second time. “From my experience in raising awareness for autism, everyone can give it ago,” he said. The college’s acting principal Simon Jones said Alex had been an “exemplary student” during his six years at Dromana College. “He thoroughly deserves the recognition of his state VCAL achievement award,” he said. “Our college community is very proud of Alex’s achievements in raising awareness of autism and we offer him our congratulations.” Stephen Taylor

Party house complaints on rise Continued from Page 1 This evidence helps determine if further formal action can be taken, including issuing an improvement notice or a prohibition notice to stop the noise under the Environment Protection Act 1970 or the Public Health and Wellbeing Act 2008. “In many cases the investigation process and negotiations with the owner of the property has addressed the problem,” he said. Residents living near a Rosebud Airbnb “party house” – who do not want to be named – said they had met with neighbours to form a group to develop an action plan to protect their peace and quiet.

“We going to go to the council to start asking questions and approach our local member [of parliament] for support,” one resident said. “One particular party house is causing us grief – we are up to pussy’s bow with it. “I am exhausted and aggravated; we do see the [non-resident] owners there from time to time and we call them when we are disturbed. This is especially in summer.” A resident living near another “party house” said, “We have a big problem with our neighbours letting their house next door and we are on acreage. “They live in Melbourne and don’t care. We know so many others in the same boat.”

‘I am’ here to stay in a roundabout way THE once-controversial sculpture “I am” is to stay at the roundabout on the main intersection in Flinders. A survey by Mornington Peninsula Shire has shown enough support to justify the sculpture remaining at the Cook and Wood streets roundabout. There were 564 responses to the survey, 337 from Flinders residents. Just under 60 per cent said they wanted the Andrew Rogers sculpture to stay, with 39 per cent against. More than half of those against the statue remaining on the roundabout said they would not object to it being relocated within the town. The survey followed assurances by the shire in August 2014 that it would ask the public about the sculpture’s future two years after it was erected. The council last week agreed to keep the $100,000 sculpture on the roundabout, which will cost ratepayers about $1000 a year to maintain. The money for the sculpture was donated as a present to mark the town’s 150th anniversary. “We are determined to enhance, celebrate and promote Mornington Peninsula’s cultural vitality through public art,” the mayor Cr Bev Colomb said in a news release announcing the decision. “Across the peninsula we are lucky to have a range of public art on display promoting the diversity of our townships and we look forward to seeing more sculptures be considered at other prominent locations around the peninsula.” The shire’s media officer Emily Lees said on Thursday that “there are currently no locations or sculptures under consideration at present”. Jane Alexander, the shire’s arts and culture coordinator, said the sculpture would continue to oxidise “creating a rich patina characteristic of this type of sculpture, and will require only periodic cleaning approximately every six months with clean water”.

MEMBERS of Mornington’s Australian Decorative and Fine Arts Society will attend their regular monthly Friday evening talk on the work of Edvard Munch’s work The Scream on Friday 7 July and then, the next day, Saturday 8 July, they will hear a presentation at Beleura House and Garden entitled Rubens to Rembrandt: The Art of Brabant, Flanders and the Dutch Republic. ADFAS offers members and their guests an opportunity to learn more about the arts. Lectures are held at the Peninsula Community Theatre, Wilsons Rd, Mornington, 5.30pm on Friday evenings. The hour-long lectures are illustrated and are followed by light refreshments and an opportunity to meet the lecturer and fellow members. The July speaker is British art historian Gerald Deslandes who teaches art history and visual studies and is a consultant to museums and galleries. He also leads cultural tours to France, Italy, Austria, Germany, Norway and the Netherlands as well as to many areas of the UK. On the Friday evening Mr Deslandes will focus on the Norwegian artist Edvard Munch. The lecture, Munch and the Nordic Imagination, will compare Munch’s suggestion of a remote and claustrophobic world of frustration and emotional extremes to the fantastical imagery of the Viking sagas. Mr Deslandes will discuss Norwegian landscape artists, such as Hans Frederik Gude and Eilif Peterssen, as well as the work of two women artists: Harriet Backer, whose intense lamp-lit interiors resemble those of Munch, and the painter and activist Aasta Hansteen, who became a model for Lona in Ibsen’s The Pillars of Society. The talk will conclude by discussing whether such ideas have continued in the larger-than-life characters and violent narratives of Jo Nesbo. Mr Deslandes in Saturday’s talk will discuss Rubens to Rembrandt: The Art of Brabant, Flanders and the Dutch Republic. He will compare the art of Protestant Holland to the triumphant reassertion of Catholicism in the work of Rubens, Van Dyck and Jacob Jordaens, showing how the artists of the Counter Reformation used drama, movement, light and colour.

The cost of attending is $20 for non-members. For more information, memberships or to make a booking, call 9787 2092.

Cooking up a storm in cancer fight SEVEN barbecue “pit masters” from Frankston and the Mornington Peninsula went dish for dish to raise money for cancer services at Peninsula Health last week. The cook-off was not for the faint-hearted and late risers. Winner Brenton Thomas – who prepared a delicious beef brisket – fired up his barbecue at 4am for the 6pm event. Take a Break for Cancer is a Peninsula Health initiative to raise funds for oncology services at Frankston and Rosebud hospitals. People were asked to host a gathering and encourage guests to contribute what they could to help fund world-class cancer services. Every year more than 1500 new cases of cancer are diagnosed in Frankston and on the Mornington Peninsula. Last year, patients received 8000 cancer treatments in the day chemotherapy units at Frankston and Rosebud hospitals. “The BBQ Bonanza was all about having fun with friends and enjoying some delicious food for a good cause,” said Mt Eliza resident James Fraser, who organised the Take a Break for Cancer event. “We’d thought about organising an event like this for a while, so we decided to actually do it and raise some money for cancer while we were at it.” About 30 people attend the event on 17 June and raised $632 for the cause. Those who did the cooking didn’t know what meat they were to prepare until a week beforehand. They then researched their recipe and cooked the meat so it was ready to be judged by 6pm on the day. They were scored on taste, presentation, texture and creativity. Mr Fraser, an electrician, is no stranger to Peninsula Health as his partner Steph Kierce is a graduate nurse at Frankston Hospital. She encouraged him to host the Take a Break for Cancer event.

CWA expansion MARNIE Turner is the new group president for the 10 branches of the Country Women’s Association for the Mornington Peninsula. The 34-year-old believes she is the youngest person to have held the position. “It’s hard to believe we’re celebrating our 90th birthday next year,” she said. “All those years ago the Country Women’s Association created places for women to go with their children when they accompanied their husbands into town. Thus, starting the first maternal health centres. “Times have changed and people are busy, but one thing remains the same – the Country Women’s Association is about women supporting women and children.” A new branch was being organised for the Red Hill area with a meeting being held at The Long Table restaurant at midday on Saturday 5 August. “We’re also looking to breathe new life into our Somerville branch, which is currently in recess,” Ms Turner said. “Right across the peninsula we’re hoping to increase membership to preserve the legacy of all the ladies who’ve come before us.”

Antiques valuation

Fine food, good cause: BBQ Pit Masters Matt McEvoy, Luke Doherty, Jarryd Pester, Brenton Thomas, James Fraser, Carl Brennan and Daniel Hargreaves enjoyed the challenge at Mr Fraser’s house.

Ms Kierce knows first-hand the importance of being able to provide local people with the best possible health care, on their doorstep. “I recently completed my first rotation on Bass Ward at Frankston Hospital and I cared for many patients with bowel cancer after they

had surgery,” she said. “As well as a stay in hospital after their operation, these patients often have chemotherapy and attend various medical appointments and tests. It’s important they can access the cancer treatment they need locally, without having to travel all the way to the city.” Register for a Take a Break for Cancer at peninsulahealth.org.au online. It can be for an afternoon tea, trivia night, sausage sizzle or something a bit different.

RED Hill Op Shop is holding an antiques valuation day with certified valuer Warren Joel from 10am-5pm on Saturday 15 July at St George’s Church hall, 201 Arthurs Seat Rd, Red Hill. Proceeds from valuations will go to Balnarring couple Adam Matthews and Katie Wright. Felicity Jackson of the op shop said the family was in need of financial assistance after Mr Matthews sustained severe injuries after falling down a flight of concrete steps last March. He was taken to Royal Melbourne Hospital with a fractured skull and other injuries. Warren Joel was donating his services. Other activities will include a raffle with 10 prizes, a peninsula produce stall, and refreshments for sale. Cost: $20 a timeslot includes valuation of up to three items as well as morning or afternoon tea. General entry $10. To book a time, call Felicity Jackson on 0438 425 815.

THE state government has this week taken over the management of the Port of Hastings through the Victorian Channels Authority. The port was run under contract until 30 June by Patrick Ports Hastings, also known as Linx Stevedoring. As from 1 July the harbourmaster Captain Shane Vedamuttu and assistants Capt Chris Noon and Capt Martin Leavold will be responsible for shipping in and out of Western Port with the Port of Hastings Development Authority (PoHDA) managing the ports on-land requirements (jetties, land side infrastructure and port maintenance). The port authority’s eight staff - down from a peak of 30 full time and 30 part time staff, including consultants – will now be based at Stony Point alongside the harbourmasters. “The PoHDA will have responsibility for oil spill responses in the port and along the Victorian coast line between Cape Schanck and Wilsons Promontory and all emergency response within the port,” Capt Vedamuttu said. About 100 ships have visited the port in each of the past three years, either picking up gas, crude oil or steel for export or importing petroleum products. In the 1970s and 1980s there were about 600 ship movements a year. The port management moves follow a recommendation in May to the government by Infrastructure Victoria that the state’s next container port be built at Bay West, in Port Phillip north of Geelong and not at Hastings. The Advice on Securing Victoria’s Ports Capacity report also states that it is unlikely there will be a need for a new container port until 2055, with detailed planning needed to begin in 2040. While a previous state Labor government saw Hastings as its preferred site for a container port, this was changed after the subsequent Liberal state government established the Port of Hastings Development Authority. Following Labor’s 2014 election victory the authority was stripped of finance and staff.

4 July 2017

Management changes: Shipping in the Port of Hastings is now being managed by the state government from offices and yards at Stony Point through the Victorian Regional Channels Authority (harbour control and harbourmaster) and the Port of Hastings Development Authority (infrastructure, maintenance and oil spills).

Barking dogs leave them sleepless in Blairgowrie So Ron Moore thinks that if we don’t embrace every dog out there, then we non-dog owners are worthy of great scorn (“Dog walkers are also beach cleaners, come and see” Letters 20/6/17). While he writes, that “dogs are wonderful creatures who bring joy and happiness to millions of people” he forgets to mention the misery that they bring to many others. Since my new neighbour moved across the fence with her two dogs, I have not had a quiet day or night. One of the dogs is a non-stop barker and is especially barky when the owner decides to go out for a quiet day or night with friends, while depositing the pooch in the backyard, where it proceeds to howl non-stop for the entire time that she’s gone. It also has its regular daily bark at 2am. How do I know this? Well, my bedroom is only a few metres from her house and her dogs. And it’s not only me that the dog annoys, my immediate neighbours are also sleep deprived and stressed out. Our quiet days are gone, but the dog owner could not care less. Instead of doing something about the barking dog, she chose instead to put earplugs (anonymously) in my mailbox. At the next major barking episode, I’m planning to walk over to her place and install those earplugs where they belong. The council has been contacted and has advised that the owner has agreed to put a citronella collar on the barker. To date, the collar has not worked and the barking continues. So Ron, while you’re making your sweeping endorsements on the joys and happiness that dogs bring to people’s lives, spare a thought for the rest of us who have to endure this “joy and happiness” on a daily basis. Christine Fry, Blairgowrie

ers and land owners (“Shire seeks easier path” The News 20/6/17). The proposed policy will have both legal and financial implications for all ratepayers and landowners and the review is now being conducted in such a manner that many, if not the majority, will be unaware that the review is being undertaken. The profile of ratepayers and landowners within the shire is such that many have no access to the local press. Furthermore, the notification on the shire’s website is not readily visible to any casual visitor to the website. The MPSC should immediately rescind the review and directly mail all parties that will be affected by the implementation of the policy. Bill Holmes, Sorrento

Path cash for dogs Mornington Peninsula Shire officers’ dismissal of the fact they got it terribly wrong when trying to push the unsympathetic design of the Somers footpath past residents wishes, just shows how out of touch they are. We really don’t need more concrete in our coastal villages. Simple crushed rock paths in these environmentally sensitive parts of the peninsula should be sufficient. These permeable paths will also benefit the vegetation and trees in these areas. Instead of spending extra money on concrete, maybe the shire could fence in strategically scattered areas around the peninsula for off-lead dog exercise places? This would make the current demand by some dog owners to exercise their pooches on the foreshores of the peninsula an ambit claim. Off-lead dogs should not be on our foreshores because native wildlife and birds don’t go together. Rupert Steiner, Balnarring Beach

Helpless homeless

Apologetic excuse What are we to think about the contretemps between the Supreme Court of Victoria and the man we send to Canberra to represent us in the national parliament [Flinders MP Greg Hunt]? That he is a man of principles and calls out something rotten in the courts when he and his ministerial colleagues see it? That he melts under pressure from unelected judges appointed, so they say, by his political opponents? That we can, or may we can’t, believe anything or everything he says in the future, or has said in the past? Or perhaps more hopefully, when he next has a “look at me” photo opportunity in one of our schools, he explains to the children that when you are wrong and the teacher tells you to apologise, you apologise. Look at me. Don Juniper, Bittern

Mail review I submit Mornington Peninsula Shire’s draft special charge schemes policy has not been fairly submitted for comment by all the shire’s ratepay-

I am a volunteer mental health worker and advocate and want to share an experience with readers to underscore the issues with homelessness. I was asked to help with a homeless and extremely vulnerable 25 year old woman who up to that time had been resident at a DHHS (Department of Health and Human Services) house with a friend. The house was taken over by dozens of ferals dealing in drugs and criminal activity, so they were given no option but to leave. The police were unable to help and she was very fearful about returning to the place anyway. DHHS housing policies and procedures dictate that she join the other 400 on the waiting list. We went to Community Service Support in Frankston who gave her two supermarket vouchers (and a hug) and two nights in a motel; Centrelink was marvellous and gave her a cash advance (and a hug); one of the church peak bodies confronted her and she broke down and refused communication. We then went to the community house in Orwil St Frankston where a psychologist was in attendance. He said she was

Pupils learn at NAIDOC Week INDIGENOUS man Lionel Lauch visited Eastbourne Primary School as part of an early celebration for NAIDOC Week, Wednesday. Mr Lauch shared his extensive knowledge with the children and parents in the day-long event. The children were fascinated by his artefacts, especially the boomerangs and didgeridoo. Mr

Lauch spoke about hunting and bush foods in on the peninsula. The McCrae and District Lions Club provided a free sausage sizzle lunch for pupils and their families. “It was a great opportunity for the pupils to learn more about their history,” teacher Hugh Greer said.

in shock so I got an ambulance which took her to Frankston Hospital where she was eventually admitted to the psychiatric assessment unit. Services for the homeless in Frankston are overwhelmed and so are the Salvos, which would be the normal course for dealing with such a situation. I am inspired by the women who work in the area and wonder why men don’t offer their services? I think they would if there was some formal process to do so, perhaps in mentoring? The young lady concerned is now in crisis accommodation. Perhaps the outstanding Peninsula Voice forum group may be able to help here? Tony Nicholl, Mt Eliza

Cat killer ‘a bad joke’

Concern over Hanson What a pity the ill-informed Senator Pauline Hanson doesn’t use her position to lobby the federal government for more funding for schools dealing with much needed extra resources for teachers educating young people with autism and other disabilities. I am positive schools and teachers would welcome the extra funding to employ more teachers’ aids and equipment. Senator Hanson seems to enjoy dividing our country and seems to deliberately cause anxiety within the community. First it was the Asians, then First Nation people, Muslims and now children with autism and other disabilities. Who is next on her list? Senator Hansen’s nastiness needs to be condemned. Denise Hassett, Mt Martha

It sounds like a bad joke. The woman who boasted on Facebook that she had killed three kittens with a bow and arrow called herself a “cat lover”. These cats, according to the RSPCA, would have suffered severe pain over several minutes due to the high level of tissue trauma and damage to organs. Shooting animals with a bow and arrow is unethical, and also an ineffective method of limiting populations. In fact, culling has repeatedly been shown to lead to an increase in the number of animals present, as it creates a more suitable habitat for increased reproduction. Humane, long-term population-control techniques such as immunocontraception do exist. Injuring and killing animals will never restore balance to the natural environment. The only reasonable solution is either to make the land itself inhospitable to the animals or to work on controlling animal populations by reducing their fertility. Cats become feral because lazy humans fail to desex them and then dump them when they get pregnant. Compulsory desexing of companion animals is the first step to solving this problem. People getting their kicks with lethal weapons is not the answer. This “cat lover” should be charged with aggravated cruelty under the Victorian Prevention of Cruelty to Animals Act. Desmond Bellamy, special projects coordinator, PETA Australia

MO

Following the release of ‘Private’, which scored over two million streams worldwide, incandescent singer-songwriter Vera Blue has released her arresting new single, ‘Mended’ and announced dates for a major national album tour this July through September. Her three previous Australian headline tours all sold out and tickets to the upcoming ‘Mended’ tour are expected to go just as fast. The nakedly honest ballad was premiered yesterday on triple j’s Drive show with Veronica and Lewis, and details the aftermath of an intense relationship. ‘Mended’ was penned with longtime collaborators Andy and Thom Mak (Boy and Bear, Winterbourne, Bertie Blackman) and marks the beginning of a new sonic and personal journey for Vera Blue. “‘Mended’ is a very special song,” she says. “It was about a relationship that I had a few years ago. It had been a little while since we’d ended it and we hadn’t made amends, said we were sorry. It’s funny because you think the song is going to be about resolution, but we haven’t quite made it there yet.” “She doesn’t put songs out that don’t come from her heart,” adds co-writer Andy Mak, “so I wanted to make sure we captured the rawness and emotion of the lyrics in the way the song was produced. We wrote the song in a couple of hours and recorded a vocal and acoustic and then built the production around that. When Thom and Celia are in the zone the songs can flow really quickly.” Born from a Malibu writing session during Vera Blue’s first American trip in 2016, ‘Mended’ sees the 23-year- old expressing a raw emotion in her music which now comes naturally. From its sparse opening, it blossoms into a gorgeous torch ballad well overdue for such a powerful and unique voice. “I like relating to people and making them feel what I feel. It’s where I’ve grown to as an artist,” she says. “That vulnerability is very

100 YEARS AGO THIS WEEK...

Gunner Dean unable to make sending off party Compiled by Cameron McCullough A VERY pleasant evening was spent on June 30th, at the residence of Mr and Mrs Dean “The Grove,” Frankston, to bid farewell to their son, Gunner R. Dean, who is sailing for the front shortly. There was a large gathering of relations, and friends and the evening was spent in dancing and games till 11. 30, then the guests adjourned to supper. The supper room and dining room were nicely decorated with flags and gum leaves. The friends and relations presented Gunner Dean with a wristlet watch, money belt, looking glass, handkerchiefs, balaclava and medal. Much thanks are due to Mr Cavell for providing music. Mrs Hay very kindly lent the flags. Mr Dean apologised for the absence of Gunner Dean who was unable to be present. The evening was brought to a close by singing “Australia will be there” and “God save the King”. *** THE postponed general meeting of the Somerville Fruitglowers will be held on Monday evening next, when business of importance will be transacted. *** A MEETING of the Soldiers’ Memorial committee was held at the Mechanics’ Institute, Frankston, on Tuesday evening last. The financial position of the fund was considered, and it was stated that there was a sum of upwards of £90 to the credit of the fund at the State Savings Bank. Donations are coming in from time

to time, and it was decided to make an appeal in the near future. A vacancy on the committee, caused by Mr Watson leaving the district, was (subject to his consent) filled by the election of Mr Hunt. *** ON Sunday next at St Paul’s Church of England, Frankston Thanksgiving services will be held at 11am and 7pm at which the Venerable, the Archdeacon of Melbourne will be the preacher. Recently a debt of over £300 was cleared off the vicarage the most of which was the result of the Direct giving. For this fine response of the people to the needs of the parish it is felt that God ought to be publicly thanked. All therefore are invited to be present at the services next Sunday. *** AN unpleasant episode occurred at the dinner given to Mr Taskler, on Friday evening, through the vagaries of one of those present. A lady visitor from the city asked permission of the chairman to invite anyone eligible to enlist and relieve the boys at the front, and while doing so, this individual rose and said he objected to anyone, unable to go to the front asking another to do so, and any woman who did so was a murderess, and any man who did so was a murderer. This caused an uproar, and cries of “put him out,” etc., were heard all over the room. The chairman requested the man to withdraw, but he declined, and two returned soldiers at once came forward to give effect to the chairman’s wish, but the offender

did not parley further but prudently retired and the harmony of the evening was not again disturbed. *** A MEETING of the Frankston Branch of the National Federation was held in the Mechanics’ reading room on Wednesday evening, but owing to the inclement weather and insufficient notice these was only a small attendance. Dr Plowman was in the chair. After the usual routine business had been gone through, Mr Ulbrick, superintendent of branches of the Federation, who is at present engaged in visiting the different branches in the State, gave a most interesting address on the origin of the Federation, its growth, and its prospects for the future. At present there were over 250 branches in the State and a membership of from 65,000 to 70,000. He urged the members to keep their machinery well oiled, for they did not know when the Branch might be called upon to vote upon some question of momentous interest, and advocated the keeping up of the regular meetings and enlisting the sympathies of the younger electors, many of whom did not understand the questions that were put before him. He also asked the members to be vigilant in increasing the membership – It could easily be doubled. The speaker also spoke on the benefits accruing from investing in War Saving Certificates. The Federation were always ready to investigate complaints made by soldiers, and if a branch got all particulars and

forwarded them to the head office he promised that they would not be pigeonholed, but would receive the fullest investigation. The chairman in thanking the speaker, expressed his gratification at the lucid explanation given of the platform and aims of the National Federation. Several questions were asked the speaker at the close of his address which were satisfactorily answered. Mr Dower moved and Mr Wheeler seconded that Crs Plowman and Oates be appointed delegates of the branch at the conference to be held in Melbourne on the 25th inst. The next meeting of the Branch will be held at Frankston on Monday, 23rd July. *** STOLEN or Strayed. ONE CHESTNUT GELDING, 9 years, 2 front shoes off, 2 white hind feet, branded like a J on shoulder, rug on. Reward. Apply–THIS OFFICE. *** OUR old friend Harry Covington from France, writes, That he was pleased to read in “The Mornington standard” the splendid account of the heroism and bravery of “Bobbie” Bates, whilst on active service. All the boys of his battalion cannot say enough for him and only wonder that he has not been awarded the V.C. for the splendid work he performed. The Australians have had some terrible fighting during the past three weeks. We are told that the Germans have lost more men in the particular part of the line up to date, than they did at Verdun in four months. So you will have some idea what it must be

like. General Haig has complimented the Australians twice lately. I post the “Standards” on to Bob Sherlock. I received your parcel of “Robur” Tea and we did enjoy it after the Army issue. The boys whom I shared it with, desired me to particularly thank you for the treat. There is an advanced airodrome across the road from where we are camped, and to see the daring tricks our aviators perform in the air makes one’s blood turn cold. It is awful to see the villages which the Huns have retreated from. All the buildings, churches especially, have been blown to atoms and along the roads where there is a cross road they have blown it up and so you see a great mine crater, many feet deep where the road should be. Bert Roberts is well and wishes with me to be remembered to all at home. Pte Will Clemens when writing was still in Lark Hill Camp with a band, but expected to return to France any day. Says it is nothing for men to go back half a dozen times it they think they are fit. Pte. Dick Donohue writes that he has had four days in London and had a good time. After a fifty mile walk with others, was inspected by the King. Although feeling tired, it was well worth it, in his estimation. Pte. C. Brody, who was reported missing is now reported to have rejoined his unit, from hospital. *** From the pages of the Mornington Standard, 7 July 1917

THE MEANING OF EXISTENCE... AND OTHER SHORT STORIES

How Much Ken One Person Take? By Stuart McCullough THEY’VE finally gone too far. For reasons known only to themselves, they’ve made an extra-special effort just to humiliate him. Goodness knows how they broke the news. Whether the boss scheduled a special meeting with HR or, perhaps, he simply turned up to work one day to find that all his co-workers were avoiding eye contact with him. But however it was done, there is no doubt that Ken Carson has had to bid a sweet farewell to his dignity. That’s because Ken – long-term boyfriend of Mattel’s Barbie – now has a man-bun. I’m not sure how best to react. Whether I should offer him my sympathies or simply tell him how I like my coffee, it’s hard to know. Granted, it’s possible that Ken may welcome the opportunity to work in the service industry in between making short films that will never be seen by anyone other than his flat-mates for the rest of his life, but I secretly suspect he resents being pigeonholed. Stuck in a pair of pants with the legs rolled up and constantly on the lookout for almond milk, hipster Ken is a most unwelcome development. I’m concerned that this one choice will forever mark Ken’s cards. There’s no way that Man-bun Ken has a mancave. Instead, he has a blog. Naturally enough, he blogs about his two primary interests in life: fashion and food, and his every syllable is devoured with great enthusiasm by the dozen or so people that read it. But while he has his own blog, he definitely doesn’t

own a car. Objecting to them on environmental grounds, Man-bun Ken is nevertheless happy to sponge a lift from anyone. Frankly, I suspect Barbie is getting sick of it. It’s inevitable that Man-bun Ken will have lousy taste in music. Maybe he has a few vinyl records, but they’ll be the wrong records like ‘Ropin’ the Wind’ by Garth Brooks or something by the Corrs (both perfectly valid mu-

sical choices if that’s your thing, but neither belong on vinyl. They just don’t.) Man-bun Ken won’t play team sports but will be sporting plenty of ink on his arms and is seriously considering a facial piercing. He’ll also be totally into anything that’s organic while simultaneously being oblivious to the fact that kale was invented in 2014 when two scientists accidentally rinsed spinach in a tub of acid rain. For

Man-bun Ken, the line between irony and reality is severely blurred. He has a ‘Ramones’ t-shirt, but has never heard any of their songs. If all this seems like an over-reaction, you must remember one thing: Ken is fifty-six years old. The appearance of a man-bun is not an act of youthful ignorance. It’s a cry for help. There seems little doubt that Barbie’s onagain, off-again life-partner is in the midst of a full-blown mid-life crisis. The man-bun is simply the hairy thinend of a terrifying tonsorial wedge. It can’t be long before Ken hightails it up to Nimbin and descends into total hippiedom. That’s right: Ken – who’s always been something of a clotheshorse – will soon be wearing hemp trousers. Looking back, the warning signs were there. Since appearing in 1961, Ken has had more than forty different jobs. That’s the kind of record that demands case-management of the most severe kind. And, of course, there’s the fact that he and Barbie never really settled down. Maybe the timing’s never been right. Or perhaps Barbie finds it off-putting that there’s no evidence to suggest Ken possesses genitalia of any kind. Granted, she’s got her career, but the two of them have never managed to make enough time to be happy. It’s sad. It’s not the first time that Ken has gone out of his way to draw attention to himself. In 1993 there was ‘Earring Magic Ken’, where he got his ears pierced. Personally, I’d have preferred ‘Grunge Ken’ in which he’d have

been dressed in flannel with a pair of Blundstone boots, singing morosely. In 2009, there was ‘Sugar Daddy Ken’ which came with a West Highland Terrier puppy. This, it should be noted, occurred while Barbie and Ken were officially estranged. Although they rekindled their relationship in 2011, there’s no word as to what became of the puppy. I’m worried for Mid-life Crisis Ken. Worried that he’s wasting his life by refusing to admit that times have changed and he’s no longer as young as he used to be. Frankly, I suspect he’s on the verge of snapping. Out of the blue, Man-bun Ken will quit his job as a part time barista and head up to the mountains where he will live under a piece of plastic for months on end, while foraging for sustenance. From time to time, Hobo Ken will wander into town, frightening the locals as he rummages through the bins behind the supermarket. Ken should give up trying to stay young. It is, quite frankly, the only way he can truly save himself. Manbun Ken is a symptom of an even deeper malaise that can only be cured by accepting himself for who and what he is – a perpetually single middleaged man whose West Highland Terrier is missing. Ken, buddy, if you’re reading this and you want to talk, don’t be afraid to reach out. I’m here for you. Remember, I’m only a phone call away. stuart@stuartmccullough.com

Pythons pile on seven to sink Sharks PENINSULA LEAGUE

By Toe Punt PINES booted seven unanswered goals in 20 minutes of devastation to turn a seven-point deficit into a 35-point victory against Bonbeach on Saturday. In a high-quality game between the top two teams in the competition, Pines was able to find something extra when it mattered most to continue its domination over the Sharks. In his three years at the helm for Bonbeach, coach Steve Hughes has never tasted victory against the Pythons. At the six-minute mark of the last quarter, after a see-sawing battle all afternoon, the Sharks booted a goal and went seven points up after leading at quarter time. At that stage of the match, the first goal of the last quarter was an important one. However, as was often the case throughout the match, the opposition was able to hit back. In this instance, Pines was devastating, booting the next seven goals of the game, winning 16.5 (101) to 10.6 (66). There is a real resolve and maturity in this crop of Pines players. Like it did against Seaford a few weeks earlier, the Pythons were able to find something extra when the chips were down. Pines’ stars stood up again. Guy Hendry was the best player on the ground, controlling the defensive zone and taking more than 20 marks, both contested and uncontested. His ball

use was also a feature of the game. Whether he was setting things up from half back or winning his own footy through the middle, Luke Potts was masterful, while Aaron Edwards and Tim Bongetti were first class with five goals each. ‘Bongo’ is a rare breed in this game. Coaches talk about second and third efforts, Bongetti finds a fourth, and is as classy at ground level as he is in the air. Corey Ash was dropped a couple of times in contests by reigning league medallist Shane McDonald, but it didn’t deter the Pines stopper from completing the task, winning the battle. Ash is a genuine tagger in the modern game and wins his own footy. Dylan Smilie is fast becoming one of the best ruckmen in the game and he clearly outpointed Bonbeach’s Dylan Jones. In fact, young Tom Hogan was better in the ruck than Jones. With Hendry dominating in defence, it was puzzling as a spectator not to see the Shark’s throw Jones into attack to make Hendry more accountable. Jones had zero impact on the game. The Pythons have also found another one in Lee Hearnden, who provided sensational support in the ruck for Smilie. Not only was he good in the ruck, but Hearnden also covered the ground well and was like a 193cm midfielder. There’s a lot to like about the 2017 Pythons. Bonbeach just needs to find a way to beat them. Mt Eliza has set-up a match of the day showdown with Frankston YCW

this weekend after controlling its match against Edithvale-Aspendale at Regents Park. Playing for outright fifth place, the Redlegs jumped to a four-goal break in the first quarter and were never headed, winning 17.17 (119) to 10.12 (72). Dan Gormley and Jimmy Freeman booted four goals each for the winners and Tom Freeman booted three majors while Robbie Turnball was at his best. The Mounties will play Frankston YCW in the RPP Match of the Day on 98.7FM. Frankston YCW had little trouble against Mornington, winning 15.16 (106) to 6.6 (42). Josh Butland booted four and Nick King and Kyle Hutchison three each in the one-sided affair. Warwick Miller was again Mornington’s best. Langwarrin gave Seaford a sixgoal head start but went down by just nine points. The Kangas booted 10 to six from midway through the second quarter and finished with 27 scoring shots to 26, 10.17 (77) to 12.14 (86). The Tigers will be happy to escape with the four points in that one. Chelsea was able to get the job done in its match against Karingal, winning 16.8 (104) to 12.7 (79). Only six points separated the teams at half-time when Karingal hit back with eight second-quarter goals, however, Chelsea booted four unanswered goals in the third to set up the win.

Deadline drawn out for clubs in AFL SE review By Toe Punt AFL South East has extended its deadline by a week to receive feedback and submissions from MPNFL clubs, despite the fact that every one of the MPNFL Clubs responded before the original 3 July deadline. Eighteen of the 22 MPNFL clubs responded as a collective. The other four clubs, Edithvale-Aspendale, Langwarrin, Pines and Tyabb responded individually. In a memo to the clubs last Friday (30 June), AFL South East regional general manager John Anderson said the review panel accepted the letters as feedback to the ‘AFL South East – Senior Competition Review – June 2017 Draft Recommendations’ from the clubs. “While we accept the correspondence forwarded on your behalf, the panel is keen to encourage further feedback from each of the 18 clubs as part of the process,” Anderson wrote.

“We would like to see those clubs provide additional insight and detail as to their individual views and opinions. There may be other elements and ideas clubs would like to put forward and we encourage clubs to submit further thoughts on the future of the competition that will help in the process,” he said. It is believed that the 18 MPNFL Clubs are not prepared to provide any further feedback on an individual club basis. The clubs believe that AFL South East has its own agenda and given 20 of the 22 submissions by MPNFL clubs oppose that agenda, they are not prepared to provide alternatives, believing that was the responsibility of the governing body. MPNFL clubs stand united and would welcome the opportunity for collective discussion, something that AFL South East has not entertained up to this point.

Sorrento dominates despite club dramas NEPEAN LEAGUE

By Toe Punt SORRENTO was able to put a tumultuous week behind it, embarrassing Hastings in front of the Blues’ own supporters on Saturday and inflicting a massive 94-point thrashing against the reigning premier. The Sharks have now blown away both of the 2016 grand finalists by more than 15 goals, after belting Frankston Bombers last week. Yours truly broke the news at 11.20pm on Saturday night that Sorrento coach Nick Jewell had resigned his position at the club for personal reasons. Whilst social media blew up, it didn’t seem to deter the Sharks one little bit as it booted 11 goals to two in the second half to win 17.25 (127) to 5.3 (33). Had Sorrento kicked straight, the margin would have been well more than 20 goals. It found the big win even without Chris Dawes, who was rested, while Troy Schwarze is injured also. If the belting wasn’t enough for Hastings to swallow, it had to look on as star forward Luke Hewitt received a compound fracture of his leg and will be out of action for the remainder of this season and most of next. The Blues already have some substantial problems kicking a winning score and eight scoring shots on Saturday was more evidence of that. Now it’s also missing its most powerful forward in Hewitt. At Sorrento, the jury is out as to what the future holds for the coach. There are some powerbrokers at the club who believe they should push on without Jewell at the helm, while there’s also talk that others are supportive of Jewell and want him back inside the next month. One thing is for sure though at Sorrento, it’s better viewing than an episode of Home and Away – there’s always something going on. Another thing is for sure at Sorrento, its argument against promotion-relegation or divisional football is going to fall on deaf ears. They are simply making a joke of the Nepean Division competition right now. Somerville staged a miraculous comeback to

inflict the second straight defeat on Frankston Bombers. The Eagles trailed by 17 points midway through the last quarter, only to boot the final four goals of the game to win 12.18 (90) to 12.10 (82). At quarter time, the Bombers led by almost five goals. Steve Crowe was vintage for the Eagles with three goals and Rohan Hogenbirk is back to his devastating best. It was also great to see Luke Rowe back out there for the Eagles. Beau Muston booted four for the Bombers and Jarryd Amalfi continued his excellent form despite carrying an injury. Dromana made it six wins on the trot with a demolition job on Devon Meadows, smashing the opposition 14.15 (99) to 5.9 (39). It was one of the Meadows’ worst losses of the year. I have personally been waiting for the Tigers to crash but there seems to be no signs of going backwards for the exciting Tigers. After being on the Tigers’ wagon in the pre-season, it was hard to find any level of confidence given their putrid showing earlier in the year. However, after six wins in a row, anything is now possible. Inaccuracy cost Rosebud a couple of weeks ago against Frankston but it doesn’t seem to have corrected the problem, despite winning again on Saturday against Crib Point. The Buds had 36 scoring shots to 15, booting 16.20 (116) to 7.8 (50). Daniel Wilson is an underrated workhorse of the competition and he was superb again on Saturday for the Buds. Pearcedale and Tyabb went toe to toe for four quarters and it was the Panthers who tasted the sweetness of victory, winning 12.11 (83) to 11.13 (79). Red Hill had 33 scoring shots to Rye’s 12 but only won by 61 points, 13.20 (98) to 5.7 (37). Ben Hughes booted five goals for the Hillmen.

Langy nine points clear, Seaford thrashed SOCCER

By Craig MacKenzie WHILE Langwarrin was cementing its title claims Seaford United was down and all but out after last weekend’s round 14 fixtures. Langwarrin defeated South Springvale 3-1 at Lawton Park in a State 1 South-East contest that was settled in the first half. With just two minutes gone Alex Metcalfe let fly with a low strike from outside the area that beat South Springvale keeper Alex Connell for the opener. South Springvale hit back from a corner in the 14th minute as Michael Kariuki made no mistake with a free header on the edge of the six-yard box. Langy central defender Kieron Kenny went forward in the 28th minute and lobbed the ball to the back post where towering midfielder Mat Luak cleverly chested down and was about to shoot when tripped by Connell. Caleb Nicholes took the resultant penalty and sent Connell the wrong way to make it 2-1. Connor Belger broke onto a long kick downfield from Langy keeper Robbie Acs in the 41st minute but hammered his close-range shot well wide. But Belger made amends two minutes later with a smart turn inside his opponent before neatly stroking the ball past advancing Connell to complete the scoreline. Langy was without ace scorer Liam Baxter who has a quad injury but the club is hopeful that he will be fit to face Casey Comets on Friday 14 July. Mornington maintained its excellent away record with a resounding 4-0 win over Manningham United Blues on Saturday. Big Scotty Millar opened the scoring in the 43rd minute after Manningham failed to deal with a long throw and Millar struck the ball home from close range. Three minutes into the second half Sammy Orritt gave Mornington a two-goal cushion and star striker Ryan Paczkowski’s double rounded off the scoreline. Paczkowski was at the back post in the 73rd minute to finish off a fine interpassing move and in the 79th minute struck a right-foot shot under Manningham keeper Matthew Banovic following a lay-off by Keegan Ziada. Mornington went into the clash without central defenders Steve Elliott (knee) and Josh Valadon (ankle) and central midfielder Matthew Wade (hamstring). Elliott’s recovery is being monitored this week, Valadon is expected to resume full training but Wade may be

out for a few more weeks. Harry McCartney reports that Seaford United was thrashed 8-3 by Doveton at North Seaford Reserve on Saturday. As the Doves soared to top spot in State 2 South-East the home team remained anchored to the foot of the table, seven points adrift from safety with an added encumbrance of a negative goal difference of 23. Doveton’s Ronir Muriqi had a day out with four goals (18th minute, 35th, penalty 55th, penalty 83rd) and Doveton’s other scorers were Shane Tagliaferro (23rd), Gethin Jones (56th), substitute Senahid Tokalic (73rd) and Zara Yosoph (77th). Seaford striker Mitch Lander notched a double (20th and 69th minutes) and teammate Alex Roberts converted from the penalty spot in the 28th minute. Peninsula Strikers were the victims of a smash and grab raid at Centenary Park on Saturday going down 1-0 to Doncaster Rovers. Joel Richmond came off the bench in the 87th minute and scored the winner in the 89th minute.

Strikers were under the guidance of interim senior coach Billy Buchanan and assistant Graham “Winker” Watson after Craig Lewis resigned as head coach last week. Lewis cited constant harassment from referees as the trigger for his shock move and will front a tribunal hearing on 19 July following his third dismissal of the season in Strikers’ 2-1 defeat away to Berwick City in round 13. Frankston Pines had to settle for a point after Saturday’s 0-0 stalemate against Berwick City at Monterey Reserve. Doncaster’s win drags both Pines and Strikers into the State 2 South-East relegation mix and emphasises the importance of the clash between Doncaster and Pines on Friday 14 July with Strikers travelling to Waratah Reserve the following day to face title-chasing Doveton. Strikers will be without central midfielder Sam Scott who will serve an automatic suspension after accumulating five yellow cards. Skye United earned a hard-fought

point in its State 3 South-East 2-2 away draw with Brighton on Saturday having to play the second half with just 10 men after central defender Daniel Utting’s red card just before the interval. Skye took the lead in the 11th minute when Daniel Attard intercepted a headed back pass to Brighton custodian Adrian Drury. Attard chipped the ball over Drury’s head and finished it off with a diving header which snuck in off the post. However, a long ball in the 19th minute caught the Skye defence napping and Duncan Fulton’s smart finish made it 1-1. Just before half-time another long ball caught out Utting who pulled down his opponent and referee James Morgan had no hesitation in brandishing a red card. The second half was an uphill battle for the visitors but captain Mark O’Connor put Skye back into the lead with a left-footed strike that was too much for Drury despite the keeper getting a hand to the ball. Ciaran Brady drew the hosts level in the 62nd minute when he finished a cut back which beat Skye keeper Jonathon Crook to ensure a tight finish to the contest. Skye can thank Crook for its point as the last chance of the game saw him spectacularly parry a strike destined for the top corner. Baxter’s State 4 South top-of-the-table clash with Bayside Argonauts ended up a no-contest as the visitors to Baxter Park dominated much of the game and deservedly ran out 3-1 victors. The go-to man for the Argonauts was attacking midfielder Stephen Patterson and he proved a handful all day. His turn and low strike in the 22nd minute forced Baxter keeper Francis Beck to parry at his near post and in the 42nd minute, Fraser McGregor’s long throw from the left was met with a back-header from Patterson that flashed wide of the far upright. The deadlock was broken in the 51st minute with a low shot from just inside the area by Argonauts midfielder Neal Byrne. Baxter striker Mark Pagliarulo latched onto a bad clearance in the 65th minute but scuffed his shot and Baxter teenager Travis Ernsdoerfer skinned an opponent in the 69th minute inside the area but skied his shot. Baxter was punished for failing to clear in the 74th minute when a low strike by Adrian Lotca rebounded off the post to Ron Harmeston whose clever turn and cheeky finish made it 2-0. Pagliarulo gave Baxter a lifeline in the 83rd minute when he went down

inside the area and converted the resultant penalty with aplomb. The nail in Baxter’s coffin was driven home in the 91st minute with a goal that would have received rave reviews anywhere in the world. Dionysis Liosatos unleashed a sizzling strike from 25 metres that was still on the rise as it flew past Beck and nestled in the top far corner of the Baxter goal. Rosebud Heart staged a remarkable come-from-behind win with 10 men to trounce Noble Park 4-1 at Truemans Road Reserve on Saturday. When Noble Park’s Nick Talidis opened the scoring in the 5th minute after a contentious penalty decision things looked grim for Heart and when Matthew Pearce was controversially dismissed in the 40th minute Scott Morrison’s men were staring down the barrel. Pearce was booked following a 50/50 tackle and his response to the referee was “you’re having a laugh”, which earned him a second yellow and his first ever red card. Prior to the send-off gun Heart striker Dave Greening had missed two one-onones and struck the post and the home side maintained its impetus despite going a man down. Right on half-time, Greening equalised following a poor clearance and Heart hit the front in the 53rd minute following an excellent interchange between Greening and Cory Osorio with the latter chipping Noble Park keeper Younis Tufan. In the 61st minute Greening turned his opponent inside out before slotting in off the near post and in the 77th minute, the rout was complete when a great run by Beau Sharpe saw him swing in a superb cross which Noble Park defender Phillip Antonopolous could only slice into his own goal. Somerville drew 1-1 with Casey Panthers at Barber Reserve on Saturday in their State 5 South fixture. Daniel Nelson put the visitors ahead in the 28th minute with a back-post header following a free kick and Joel Wade equalised for Somerville five minutes later with a left-foot volley. This weekend is a catch-up round and the only game in the local area next Saturday is the Casey Comets v Morwell Pegasus clash at Comets Stadium at 3pm. On Wednesday this week (5 July) Skye United takes on Brighton at Skye Recreational Reserve after the original fixture was abandoned due to a storm. Wednesday’s game starts at 7.30pm and is a must-win for the home side if it is to maintain pressure on Brandon Park in the race for second spot in State 3 South-East.
