Your weekly community newspaper covering Safety Beach to Portsea For all advertising and editorial needs, call 03 THE onset of the latest COVID-19 restrictions proved heartbreaking for two “outsider artists” who were looking forward to staging a joint exhibition at & Gallery, Sorrento. The outsider artists – or artists with disabilities – Robert Croft and Jonathan Thompson had been working hard to prepare works for the exhibition which closed just one day after being open to the public. Neither got to see their works on display. “The gallery is looking at its calendar of future exhibitions with a view to shifting dates so this exhibition can be extended and the opening event can be held when safe to do so,” & Gallery director Julie Collins said. “The opening will also feature music by the band Croake, of which Robert is a member, so we all hope we are able to hold the opening at some stage. “A catalogue is available with all works for sale and we hope these amazing works find their way into private and public collections. It would be great if the federal-government-supported Art Bank and backed more outsider artists by collecting them.” Ms Collins said she visited artist Mark Cuthbertson’s studio late last year where she came across the artists’ work. “As mentor to both artists, Mark has allowed Robert to express himself on a larger scale, and give Jonathan the opportunity

to explore more sculptural materials and possibilities,” she said. Ms Collins said that as outsider artists, their creativity is “unrestrained, a display of delight that is honest, raw, unfiltered, and joyous”. She said Croft gave a tactile quality to his work. “No matter what medium he uses, [he] delights in the colour, texture, and rhythm of application. “The layers of colour and texture [he] achieves through his processes demonstrate the instinctual nature of this Artist. “An industrious worker, Robert draws reference from still life and the printed image; but mainly and most effectively, his inspiration comes from the pure joy of creating.” Ms Collins said Thompson had 20 years’ experience working across a variety of mediums and techniques. “Drawing inspiration from the everyday, from family, friends and online, he redefines and reshapes his ideas, through his unique processes. Jonathan creates art that seeks to question and provoke a response from the viewer.” She said & Gallery was “honoured to be able to showcase their work to a wider audience, giving them the opportunity to be acknowledged for their commitment to their creativity.” Visit &galleryaustralia.net Stephen Taylor

Shire seeks metro break with benefits Keith Platt keith@mpnews.com.au MONEY and planning are behind the latest motivations to reassess the status of the Mornington Peninsula. Officially designated as part of metropolitan Melbourne, the peninsula is regarded as being regional when it comes to some services, such as fire protection from the Country Fire Authority. This split identification can also mean that Mornington Peninsula Shire is prohibited from applying for some federal and state government grants.

However, if the shire is officially regarded as regional, it would lose the protection of green wedge planning restrictions. The solution being sought by the shire is for the peninsula to go half way and be designated peri-regional and, hopefully, retain most of the benefits of being metropolitan. The shire will by October seek the opinions of peninsula residents through an online poll. Advocacy facilitator Emma Lindsay, in a report to council’s 13 July meeting, said that “the debate surrounding the current metropolitan classification … is a complex issue including signifi-

cant planning, land use and administrative implications”. “Most of our community are not aware of the complexities involved beyond COVID lockdown, which necessitate careful analysis and consideration, beyond a yes or no vote,” Ms Lindsay said. There has been widespread anger from residents faced with the same restrictions during lockdowns as those imposed on metropolitan Melbourne. Ms Lindsay - who described the peninsula as having a hybrid urban and rural character - cautioned councillors against pushing for a change in the peninsula’s status until it had “a

clear advocacy position, informed and validated by external and independent research”. A timetable would be “dictated” through negotiations “with the successful company procured, to deliver supporting external data”. “At this point, the shire will be in a better position to share the reasons for our proposed way forward with the community, so they can make an informed decision about their view.” Ms Lindsay said a peri-urban group of councils had successfully persuaded the state government to let them access the Growing Suburbs Fund. “This advocacy approach looks be-

yond our metropolitan status to address the unique mix of urban and regional challenges across the Mornington Peninsula, while potentially preserving the Green Wedge Zone and avoiding other significant financial costs to the shire,” Ms Lindsay said. “The external support will further inform our case for access to regional Victoria funding, where clear and comparable regional issues exist. “This will help enable the local tourism and agricultural sectors to reach their full economic potential, where they are currently overlooked by metropolitan focused funds.” “Metro disadvantage” Page 7

Shire declines to dive in for Yawa money Stephen Taylor steve@mpnews.com.au A MOVE by Cr David Gill to push the state government to overturn its refusal to contribute towards the cost of the Yawa aquatic centre at Rosebud was knocked back at last week’s council meeting. Cr Gill had wanted the council to write to Nepean MP Chris Brayne and government ministers asking that they provide money from its municipal pool fund “as it was the first time that this source of funding wasn’t used to help finance a municipal pool”. Cr Gill also wanted a government loan for the pool to be converted to a grant to “help offset the repayment burden on local ratepayers on a tourist facility for all Victorians where ratepayers are already contributing about $50 million”. He said Mr Brayne “would be welcome to make an announcement on this grant in his speech at the opening of Yawa”. Cr Gill told Tuesday 27 July council meeting that “now is the time for hardedged advocacy” in the lead-up to the November 2022 state election. “The public should be aware of the lack of funding [for the aquatic centre],” he said. “Let’s put pressure on the state government to save ratepayers’ money.” Cr Antonella Celi agreed the shire “needs to strongly position itself” for any money. “I don’t support Cr Gill’s notice of

MORNINGTON Peninsula Shire councillors have turned down a suggestion that they lobby Nepean MP Chris Brayne, above, to retrospectively get state government money towards the Yawa aquatic centre at Rosebud. Picture: Yanni motion but am glad he raised it,” she said. Crs Gill and Celi are the two remaining members of the previous council, while seven first-termers include the mayor Cr Despi O’Connor and deputy mayor Cr Sarah Race. In what is developing as an “usand-them” voting bloc, Cr Race said the lack of government grants was a “legacy issue” that should have been dealt with by the previous council. “I’m not sure why we didn’t get

funding, but it should have been raised by them,” she said. Cr Kerri McCafferty said Cr Gill’s motion was politically motivated. “We should be developing sound relationships with ministers.” “Cr Gill is in the [The News] described as the worst mayor in Australia and for harassing Mr Brayne in the street (“Spoiler alert as MP ‘meet and greets’” The News 12/7/21). “We need to advocate together and not just make a political point. We

need more class in our notices of motion, but this is just political and I am saddened to see it.” Cr Anthony Marsh described Cr Gill’s move as “political nonsense”. “It seeks to embarrass but does more harm than good,” he said. Cr Gill said “swinging seats” on the peninsula made it the right time to “go in hard for the community”. “I think Frankston got $20 million for their Peninsula Aquatic Centre while we got $5 million from the fed-

eral government and nothing from the state government,” he said. “We were dudded. Soft advocacy doesn’t work… we’ve got to learn the political game and hard advocacy means making it public instead of putting out the begging bowl.” Major projects manager Davey Smith said the council submitted funding applications to the state and federal governments through the Building Better Regions Fund ($10 million) and the Sport and Recreation Victoria Better Pools Fund ($3 million) in 2018. “Neither of these applications was successful, with the project not in the geographical inclusion zone that the BBRF fund caters for,” he said. “However, the application triggered a $5 million grant as a result of the advocacy from [Flinders MP Greg Hunt] through the Community Development Grants Program. “The unsuccessful SRV application was accompanied by advice from Sport and Recreation Victoria that the shire’s application to the Better Pools Category … was a very high ranking application. “Feedback provided was that a high level of project readiness was demonstrated, it was well-aligned with the criteria of the program and the quality of our application was very high. “The reason … the shire did not secure the Better Pools grant … was that a decision was made not to fund any of the projects in [that] category for just this particular round of grants.”

Shire’s choice not invited to meeting

Hospital marks a medical milestone A SPECIALIST surgeon has performed the Mornington Peninsula’s first liver resection using a surgical robot. Associate Professor Charles Pilgrim performed the surgical-first earlier this month at Peninsula Private Hospital. The patient was a 49-year-old woman whose bowel cancer had spread to her liver. Dr Pilgrim, the first surgeon in Victoria to use the da Vinci Xi robot for liver resections, said the cutting edge technology was great news for the hospital. “Using the da Vinci Xi robot means

we can perform surgery with the minimally invasive approach more often, expanding what is possible using the keyhole approach,” Dr Pilgrim said. “There are areas of the liver that you can get to with the robot that you just can’t get to with traditional laparoscopic surgery. The instruments give you more flexibility to give more precise directions in hard-to-reach areas.” Peninsula Private CEO Michelle Henderson said the patient was able to receive all of her cancer treatment close to home, without having to travel into Melbourne. “We have a fantastic team of spe-

cialists here and this year we became the first in the region to offer patients access to the da Vinci Xi robot technology,” Ms Henderson said. It was significant that the patient had been able to see Mr Stewart Skinner for her bowel surgery, oncologist Dr Simone Steel for her chemotherapy and Dr Pilgrim for her liver surgery at the Frankston hospital. “To have that continuity of care is something we’re really proud to bring to this region because we’re focused on providing locals with access to top medical care close to home,” Ms Henderson said.

THE Bass Park Trust met last Thursday (29 July) but did not invite Mornington Peninsula Shire’s nominated representative, Cr Anthony Marsh. The online Zoom meeting was, however, attended by Cr David Gill, as he has done for the past four and a half years. Cr Marsh, a Briars Ward councillor (Mount Eliza, Mornington and Mount Martha), successfully nominated himself for the position in June, saying it was “important all councillors are active all over the municipality”. Cr Gill, whose Red Hill Ward includes Flinders Golf Course which is on land managed by the Bass Park Trust, told The News that Cr Marsh wanted the position “just as a way of getting at me”. Cr Gill said he had been “an invited guest” at last week’s meeting of the trust. “Marsh didn’t go [online] - he wasn’t invited,” Cr Gill said. Cr Marsh reported to council’s 13 July meeting that he was “excited” that his application was being progressed by the Department of Environment, Land, Water and Planning (“Marsh ‘excited’ by trust ‘progress’” The News 27/7/21). After last week’s trust meeting Cr Gill said DELWP “can’t wait to get rid of me and get Marsh on”. Cr Gill said he was seen as a “thorn in the side” of DELWP, especially after publicising Parks Victoria’s inten-

tions to demolish an historic wooden section of the Flinders pier. He said the trust was established nearly a century ago to protect the golf course land from developers and was not answerable to council. “Councillors don’t realise it’s an independent body and council can’t do anything.” The decision by five councillors to back Cr Marsh’s self-nomination was their way of “getting at me … they’ll realise the trust is not out to change the world or advocate for any major changes”. The trust and Flinders Community Association have asked council to reverse its decision to appoint Cr Marsh (“Trust says ‘no’ to council’s chosen delegate” The News 15/6/21). It is unclear whether the trust has to accept council’s nomination. The trust has up to nine members and will next meet in October. Cr Marsh told The News on Friday (30 July) that he had not attended any trust meetings “as I am not yet a trustee”. He was still awaiting confirmation that his position “has been ratified” although “multiple background checks have now been completed”. “The shire has not had a formal representative on the Bass Park Trust for many years, and I look forward to the position being ratified soon,” Cr Marsh said.

Voices raised the classical way THE mostly senior-aged members of Southern Peninsula Choir have combined with Mornington Peninsula Shire to encourage younger voices to take up classical singing. The shire-backed Raising Our Voices project saw Charlotte Carr sing her way to an $800 classical music scholarship. The choir’s music director Antony Ransome said Raising Our Voices helped strengthen the peninsula’s only classical choir, formerly known as

The Raising Our Voices project would include promotional and educational activities “to build stronger links with community, make classi-

Action plan to stamp out harassment Stephen Taylor steve@mpnews.com.au SEXUAL harassment training will be mandatory for all Mornington Peninsula Shire councillors and staff. While the training will take place online, existing face-to-face training will be reviewed to make sure it is tailored to workplace risk factors. Staff will be able to make complaints anonymously and quarterly case studies of sexual harassment complaints will be made to ensure records and actions are appropriate and to identify any trends. There will be an increase in the availability and specialised training for managers. The plan adopted unanimously at council’s Tuesday 27 July meeting aims to prevent, and respond to, sexual harassment within local government. The plan - basically updating one adopted by the shire in March 2018 - followed an audit by the Victorian Auditor-General’s Office (VAGO) which examined whether municipal councils provided workplaces that are free from sexual harassment. The audit was tabled in Parliament in December 2020. The VAGO audit looked at the prevalence and nature of sexual harassment in councils, their policies, training and communication, and the effectiveness of complaint handling. Five councils were audited, and a local government-wide survey was conducted with responses from council employees and councillors from across 75 municipalities. The shire was not au-

Metro ‘disadvantage’

dited but participated in the survey. People and culture manager Kelly Gillies said the VAGO report made 11 recommendations for all Victorian councils in the areas of understanding the prevalence of sexual harassment, prevention of and response to sexual harassment and councillors. She said the shire’s action plan responded to these findings and had been endorsed by the executive team. The plan calls for the collection of information on the prevalence and nature of sexual harassment in recognition that the onus should be on the organisation to change workplace culture rather than the complainant. The action plan commits council to preventing

and eliminating sexual harassment, sex discrimination and victimisation in its policies, strategies and decisions. “It is up to us to lead and set the tone,” Cr Kerri McCafferty said. “This [plan] won’t eliminate sexual harassment, but it will help set up proactive measures. “People shouldn't have to bear the burden. In the VAGO Report we see discrepancies between the numbers of people who have experienced it and those who report it [because] of fear they won't be believed; for fear of losing their job, or because the process is worse than the event. “We should be implementing an anonymous complaints program [and] doing our best to eliminate it entirely.”

Cr Anthony Marsh said the VAGO survey showed that councillors were “grossly over-represented” in the number of complaints. “We must shine a light on ourselves and lead by example,” he said. “Councillors only make up one per cent of the workforce but received 6.6 per cent of complaints.” Cr Sarah Race said sexual harassment was a “form of gender based violence”. “Women should feel safe at work,” she said. “The cost to women's careers and mental health and to the economy is in the billions. “By passing this motion tonight we are saying ‘enough’. We are telling victims we see you, we hear you and we believe you’.”

 

IN its response to the 2021-22 state budget, the Committee for Mornington Peninsula said being classified metropolitan “frequently disadvantages our residents, businesses and communities without providing the standards that metropolitan designation should confer”. “For example, reduced levels of payroll and property taxes are available to regional areas, but are denied to the Mornington Peninsula, whereas the peninsula does not benefit from metropolitan standards state government funding for education providers, public transport links or hospital services.” The committee said that since 2019 it had been “advocating for the chronic disparity in public funding between the Mornington Peninsula and our regional neighbours to be addressed”. “This year’s Victorian budget has not only seen the usual funding shortfall between the Mornington Peninsula and our regional neighbours, but our metropolitan neighbours as well.” In his July online Nepean Community Update Nepean Labor MP Chris Brayne has urged “all locals … to get out and support local businesses who have been doing it really tough”. “If you know of a business that needs help or has any questions about the new rules or what grants and support they may be entitled to, please get in touch with me.” To contact Mr Brayne call 5986 6661 or email chris.brayne@parliament.vic. gov.au.

WHAT’S NEW...

Why not start a new job near you this September? YOU could start a new career where on the Mornington Peninsula as early as September. If you enjoy being part of a supportive team while caring for our elderly citizens, then a new traineeship program may be just right for you. Japara has partnered with Chisholm to offer fully supported aged care traineeships at its two aged care homes in Capel Sound and Rye. This is an earn while you learn opportunity that will lead to a Certificate III in Individual Support. Danny Cetincic is a graduate of the Traineeship program on the Mornington Peninsula. He has enjoyed, both, the education at Chisholm TAFE and the placement at a Japara aged care home not far from where he lives. Danny signed up for the paid traineeship to start a new career in an industry that promises permanent and reliable employment for many years to come. He said, the recruitment process was not difficult and that anyone could join who is reliable and cares for the wellbeing of our elderly citizens. Once he got started in November 2019, Danny quickly realised that he might have found a career path that is just right for him. It was only six months later when he was able to graduate with a Certificate III that is accepted across the care sector and Australia-wide. Being popular with staff, residents, and their families, Danny was offered a contract with Japara which he proudly signed, and he has been working at the home in Rye ever since. If you have any other questions, or want to attend a free information session on the Mornington Peninsula, simply email Japara’s Regional Manager via Dana.Ieraci@japara. com.au Free Information Sessions: Capel Sound 10. August at 2pm & Rye - 12. August at 5pm www.japara.com.au/traineeship

To help others join the rewarding aged care sector, Danny has put some time aside to answer a few questions that prospective care workers usually ask. 1. What did you like about the course? I enjoyed the aged care traineeship and the fact that I got paid to learn. The course was well organised and the teacher was highly experienced and imparted a lot of real-world field knowledge into our classes. It was interesting to then do placement and buddy shifts at a Japara home on the Mornington Peninsula where I could make the most of my newly gained skills, meeting residents face to face. In addition to the practical experience, I truly enjoyed the role-playing with other trainees on campus. I have learned a lot and even today, I still rely on some of the skills from then during my day-to-day work at Japara. 2. What did you learn from the course? The course taught me everything I needed to know about working in aged care. I had very little knowledge about aged care before signing up for this new career path. The course was well structured and I learnt everything, including theory and practical things that you need in your job as a care worker. The traineeship was so valuable because in-class learning and the practical elements of the course went hand in glove. 3.Why do you think others should choose this traineeship? If you want a career in aged care, this traineeship is a perfect fit. There is a demand for aged care workers, especially on the Mornington Peninsula, and completing this course will open up a large range of job and career opportunities in this growing sector. The traineeship program allows you to get paid while you learn. So you can generate an income during your seven months of training, before being qualified a taking home a Certificate III. 4. How is your career developing since graduation? I really like my work at Japara and spending some quality time with our lovely residents and my teammates. I have permanent shifts at the aged care home and I enjoy the flexibility to pick up additional shifts, if want to do so. I have a regular stream of income, which is very comforting, and I gain more experience on a daily basis, working with a number of clients who require different forms of care and support. I might look into other additional roles within the aged care sector eventually, such as working in home care.

Drugs, cash seized in Mornington MEMBERS of the Southern Metro Division 4 Response Unit charged two men and seized a large amount of cocaine and $65,000 cash in Mornington last week. The officers were on foot patrol in Railway Grove and Ross Street when they spoke to two men about 11.40am, Wednesday, 28 July. While searching their car they allegedly found a large amount of cocaine and cash. They then executed three search warrants at properties in Mornington, Seaford and Langwarrin where a large amount of cash, cocaine, cannabis and magic mushrooms, and a homemade drug press, were also allegedly seized. A 23-year-old Seaford man, and a 23-yearold Langwarrin man, have been charged with trafficking cocaine, possessing the proceeds of crime and other related offences.

businesses are struggling, and our community is struggling.” Cr David Gill questioned why Cr Race was saying the matter was urgent “when it wasn’t eight months ago”. Cr Anthony Marsh: “It is urgent. To push it out to next month [17 August council meeting] is madness. It is based on current data and events and is happening now.” Cr Race said later: “Regarding the JobSeeker supplement, this pandemic isn’t going away anytime soon, with continuous lockdowns and a lack of viable support for businesses we will see rising unemployment and more of our community on the ropes. “We need our unemployed to be supported properly when hopes of long-term and full time employment, particularly in hospitality and retail businesses, is perilous. “Many people are calling for the reinstatement of JobKeeper, including the NSW Treasurer. This is not a radical move. Until the vaccination rollout picks up pace and we are at herd immunity, lockdowns will continue to play a part in how we fight this pandemic.” Cr Race said the shire was “pulling all the levers it can to support our people through COVID-19 financial hardship policy, our $9 million COVID-19 recovery budget, as well as other stimulus. However, we do not have the ability to implement wide ranging income support”. “Local and state governments and much of the private sector do not have the ability to support our community in this way, our federal government does [and] that is why I’m seeking this urgent business be passed this evening.” Copies of the shire’s request will be sent to state MPs David Morris (Mornington), Neale Burgess (Hastings), Chris Brayne (Nepean), and federal MPs Peta Murphy (Dunkley) and Greg Hunt (Flinders). Crs Steve Holland and Susan Bissinger excused themselves before the vote was taken.

Shots fired SHOTS were fired at a property at Crib Point last week. Police were told “a number” of shots hit a garage door in Disney Street, 5.30am, Friday 23 July. No one was injured in the incident and the investigation is ongoing. Anyone with information is urged to contact Crime Stoppers 1800 333 000 or submit a confidential crime report at bit.ly/3BwvdBM

Gun amnesty GUN owners on the Mornington Peninsula can take advantage of Crime Stoppers Victoria’s first permanent national firearms amnesty to hand in any unwanted or illegal firearms, parts, or ammunition anonymously and without fear of prosecution from this week. The amnesty being run in partnership with the Department of Home Affairs gives people the opportunity to “make the right call” on illegal guns and help get them out of the community.

MORNINGTON Peninsula Shire Council wants the federal government to reinstate the JobKeeper and JobSeeker payments to “support our Victorian communities during this unprecedented pandemic”. “Our communities are suffering and they need greater income support which we, as a local government, can’t deliver them; we’ve pulled all the levers we have available,” Cr Sarah Race told council’s Tuesday 27 July meeting. “I have spent the last week and a half hearing from and reading about the anguish of business owners and community members and their very real struggle with lockdown five. “Most of us know public health measures are necessary in a pandemic, however, that doesn’t make situations any easier. “Many of our business owners have had to stand down staff. Many people are wondering how they’re going to feed their families – even with the amazing support of our hardworking community organisations. “Many people are trying to figure out how they’re going to pay their rent, mortgage and utilities.” Cr Race said the shire had “one of the highest rates of JobKeeper support”. “The JobKeeper wage subsidy was paid through the employer’s payroll system, so employers could only receive payments for as long as a worker remains employed,” she said. “This kept employees connected to their places of employment. “JobKeeper stopped 700,000 jobs from being lost in the first half of 2020. “The new COVID-19 disaster payment of $600 separates employers and employees. $600 is also $150 less per week than the minimum wage. “Services Australia are also reporting a massive backlog of claims. Our people are struggling; our

Mayor should realise council is a place for political debate I read with dismay that the Mornington Peninsula Shire Council mayor [Cr Despi O’Connor] stated on the public record that Cr Steve Holland’s stance on natural gas was “political” and “[he] is scaring people for political purposes; he is being divisive” (“Council heats up over gas debate” The News 19/7/21). In case the mayor hasn’t realised, local government is one of the three tiers of government and thus politics is always going to be involved - that is why there is an election and people vote for the councillors that they feel best represent their local views. I am highly amused at the mayor labelling someone else on council as “divisive” when she voted for and supported the removal of the prayer without any community consultation on the issue - how is that not divisive to a predominately Christian community? It is divisive and has basically allowed six councillors to decide on an important community issue without any consideration of the community they were elected to represent. I also think the mayor would do well to review the shire’s councillor code of conduct that states “In considering the diversity of interests and needs of the municipal community, treats all persons with respect and has due regard for their opinions, beliefs, rights and responsibilities”. Has Cr O’Connor shown any respect to the opinions, beliefs, rights and responsibilities of Cr Holland and many in the community based on her comments. Alina Tooley, Mornington

Excuses on track I empathise with Friends of Cape Shank (“Cape of neglect” Letters 27/7/21). I keep asking [Mornington Peninsula Shire Council] for a

walking track at Shoreham, but there is always some excuse about why it can’t be done. Other areas have been lucky enough to have paths installed. I wonder what percentage of rates collected from Shoreham are spent in the area. Wendy Gown, Shoreham

Over exposed We have received by post the latest edition of Mornington Peninsula Shore Council’s journal Peninsula Wide. A few suggestions: Offer all ratepayers the option of receiving the journal by email thereby saving postage and paper (even if it is recycled paper); is it really necessary for the journal to have 30 per cent - 40 per cent of its content feature photographs of our councillors? I have just added them up and the mayor [Cr Despi O’Connor] is shown in 16 photos in the 22 pages. Why? Noticeably, this has occurred only since last year’s council elections. Bill Holmes, Sorrento

Jab the solution It’s clear that the only way we can shed COVID-19 and get back to normal business is to vaccinate the entire population [by] sometime next year. Meantime, our second defence is masks, and that’s working. Our third defence is contact tracing and isolation. Terrible, costly, but absolutely essential. Lockdowns are critical to halt the spread. I can see that if COVID is traced to your business premises you will be shut down, your staff isolated at home, and you may lose a lot of money. Therefore, for economic reasons, you may

not want to enthusiastically co-operate with government measures to control the pandemic. The same attitude as the Facebook-organised street louts protesting for their “freedom”. Everywhere you go now, the QR code pictures are there if you want to click on, or there’s a manual log book somewhere, sometimes you have to ask for it, or discover it. Many shops are very lax, turn a blind eye, and enforce nothing, even some supermarkets. I’ve noticed that some people just walk in without the bother of even clicking on. To give credit where credit is due, Bunnings, Mornington, is exemplary. On the other side of the coin, small businesses are united in demanding, begging, hoping for socialism by means of cash grants to keep running and the profits coming. Many small retailers and hospitality or food vendors despise their misinformed, ignorant, perception of democratic socialism, but expect it from Liberal and Labor governments for themselves. Brian A Mitchelson, Mornington

Speaking of COVID It is on the best health advice, my own sanity, that I write this. It has been approved by ATAGI and the TGA, even the PBO, although I don’t know who they actually are. [Victoria’s Chief Health Officer] Brett Sutton said on TV “I don’t know, I don’t know”, but I believe if we are all vaccinated this will lead to herd immunity.I don’t know what the cows have to say about that. Mind you, Professor Sutton was a bit distracted at the time. He was worried about false positives becoming positives, social distancing, masks, and keeping our fingers crossed. The last mentioned seems to be the most scientific. [Premier] Dan [Andrews] still thinks we need a ring of steel around NSW. He has also mentioned the Grattan Institute was “having a lottery”, or something. I would like to win some money now, maybe he could get me some tickets. He didn’t ask his contact

tracers about anything today or even refer to any epidemiologists, but he did wish all those in the “iso” all the best many times. Apparently, they are real troopers, in the land of “iso”. Generally speaking, Dan was quite nice about NSW. I have been thinking he ought to get in touch with Dame Edna and ask for some “gladdies” be sent to our [NSW Premier] Glad [Berejiklian] to cheer her up. That would be an all in this together thing to do. He could send yellow ones. to match her gold standard hat. Victorians, be happy it is the end of this lockdown, kids back at school, but remember there are still restrictions. I’m just trying to stay calm in all this COVID lockdown era, and also trying to understand some of the language I now speak Mary Lane, Mornington

Private cover dies It appears that this ideologically motivated neoliberal pseudo-Christian extremist [federal] government is trying to move us to the US healthcare system and into the public health care sector, which is already underfunded and bursting at its seams. Starting with the reduction of 18 per cent to the private health insurance rebate. Medical experts have warned recent changes to Medicare will increase out of pocket costs. Patients could be left paying hundreds of dollars for some common procedures and up to $10,000 for rarer conditions. The government has since 2014 cut billions in funding for Medicare and other health programs. What’s worse, is that it froze the Medicare indexation rate, which undermines bulk-billing. Keep in mind that while doing this these politicians have enhanced their take home pay by $30,000 through tax cuts to the top income earners, and they are looking at another $10,000 when the next round cutting of the top tier comes in. Joe Lenzo, Safety Beach

Finally, relief from your hip pain DOES this describe YOU? • You get hip pain laying on your side in bed, and just can’t get to sleep. • You place a pillow between your legs to help you get to sleep but laying on the painful side is still waking you. • You find yourself standing on one leg with your other hip hanging lower, or you sitting with crossed legs causes the pain • You are a runner worried your hip pain will get worse and stop you from exercising. If so then read on. The pain on the outside of the hip can be due to inflammation of the gluteal tendon, of Gluteus Medius and Minimus, where the gluteal muscles attach. It can also be where a bursa (a fat pad called the trochanteric bursa) can become inflamed. The hip pain may be associated with a stiff back. Physiotherapist Mark Charalambous, says that it is an injury affected by hip weakness and postural habits that place the tendons under stress. It requires a full analysis of the hip and lower limb, looking from the foot to the back biomechanics. It can require massage, and specific strengthening exercises for the gluteal muscles as well as improving core stability to control pelvic movement. In addition to the above solutions, there is a recent healing technology that is making a profound difference to outside of the hip pain sufferers. Practice owner, Paul Rowson says

Physiotherapist, Mark Charalambous “Shockwave Therapy is often useful, because the gluteal tendons are a connective tissue, not a muscle. It puts a significant shockwave through the tissues you apply it to. It is a pressure wave which brings blood flow to the area. Tendons and connective tissue do not have much blood supply and can take a long time to heal. Shockwave artificially stimulates the healing of the tendon.” Shockwave therapy can also be used on Achilles tendonitis, Plantar Fasciitis, golfer’s and tennis elbow, and rotator cuff tendon problems,

and is usually most effective on long term chronic problems, rather than acute injuries. Shockwave is not the first line of treatment for injured patients. Physiotherapy and graded exercise are more likely in the first instance. But for more stubborn conditions, shockwave has shown good results. “The evidence at the moment suggests between three to five treatments are required, but most people should see an improvement within three sessions. It has a success rate up to 90%” Mark says. The Shockwave therapy is administered for a three-minute period

to the affected area during consecutive weekly appointments. “It is a bit of an uncomfortable sensation” Mark says, “like most physio hands-on treatments, with a little discomfort during the treatment.” Paul says, “After each session, most people get a significant reduction of pain and symptoms. Long term it stimulates healing, short term it reduces pain. The best thing is, the effects are long lasting. It prevents a lot of people having more invasive things like surgery or injections. The treatment is considered safe, but can produce skin reddening or bruising, short term pain, and cannot

be used on people taking blood thinning medications or with bleeding disorders. “ “It is important to know that Shockwave has a long-term effect. Most of the time you have good outcomes, without having to have further treatments.” Shockwave is now available in Balnarring.

100 YEARS AGO THIS WEEK...

Twins terrible ordeal - Lost in fierce storms Compiled by Cameron McCullough TRAGIC results followed the wandering of two little twin boys, Bertie and Jackie Guy, aged 4½ years, from Frankston on Wednesday. The sons of Mr and Mrs A. Guy, of Berry Street, Richmond, they had been on a visit to their uncle, Mr Ahrens and his wife at Frankston. The children had recently been patients at the Infectious Disease Hospital at Fairfield. During Wednesday afternoon they were missed from their uncle’s house. A search in the neighborhood proved unsuccessful, and at 5.30pm police aid was sought. The fire bell was rung, and the greater part of the male population of Frankston formed into search parties, which, led by Senr. Constable Bray and Constable Dyball, set out in all directions. All through the night which was bitterly cold and wet, the search continued, men going for miles out into the country, but without success. At day-break fresh parties took up the work, and the search continued until at 2pm Mr J. Bradbury, with a party of volunteers on a motor lorry, found one of the children lying prostrate on the side of a roadway 2½ miles out of the town. The child was in a very low state from exposure of the cold, driving winds and sleety showers of the previous night, which was said to have been the worst of the season. The second little child was found lying dead near some bushes a short distance away. No time was lost in taking the surviving child to St Pancras Hospital,

where, under the treatment of Dr. Maxwell and Nurse Campbell, he is recovering from the effects of the terrible night’s exposure. Good work was done by members of the Fire Brigade, in common with many others. Captain Petrie desires all who were supplied with torches to return same to him. A gallant band of ladies supplied refreshments to the searchers at the Fire Station during the night. The funeral will take place tomorrow (Saturday), leaving Mr Ahrens’ residence, Frankston, at 3 o’clock for Frankston cemetery. *** LETTER to the editor Sir, Arising out of the distressing tragedy which occurred in our midst this week, I have been approached by numerous citizens who are desirous of showing practical sympathy with the bereaved parents. Subscription lists are now open, and are lodged with Cr. Oates, and Cr. Wells, and will you, Sir, kindly open your columns for the receipt of amounts, which may be also left at my office. W. P. MASON, Shire President. (“The Standard” will gladly receive and acknowledge amounts. – Ed.) *** THE Shire Council take over the electric light concern from the Frankston Company next Monday. More concern than light, judging by recent experience. *** THE annual municipal elections will be held on Thursday, 25th August. Candidates must be nominated not

later than Thursday, August 11th. It is time some move was made by the ratepayers to see that the vacancies in this shire are satisfactorily provided for. It is understood that all retiring councillors, with the exception of Cr. Griffeth (Centre Riding), intend seeking reelection. Mr Joseph Unthank has been mentioned as his successor. Cr H. E. Unthank retires in the East Riding, while Cr. Howell announces his intention of again offering his services to Seaford ratepayers. If he is to have opposition the fact has not been definitely announced, but it is known that Mr H. J. McCulloch’s friends are urging him to come forward. The creation of the new Mount Eliza riding necessitates all three sitting councillors in the Frankston Riding going to the poll. For the three vacancies in the Mount Eliza Riding only two candidates can at present be definitely named, viz.. Mr George May, the well known orchardist, and Mr Chas Gray, J.P., late Commissioner for Fair Prices, of William Street, Frankston. *** THE concert and dance held at the Mt. Eliza Post Office Tea Rooms last Friday night was a great success. Captain Davies generously placed his spacious apartments at the disposal of the numerous guests, and, with Mrs Davies, entertained over 100 visitors in right royal fashion. The genial host presented the gross proceeds to the committee of the hall building fund. A bright and varied programme interspersed the dancing, which was directed by Mr C. Wood to music

supplied by the Frankston orchestra. Songs were rendered by Misses Stephens, Mitchell, Lila Baldrin, and Messrs Thomas, Barney Bradford, D. Dodd, Kennedy (Melbourne) and Brean; recitation, Miss Bell. A ‘cello solo by Mr Goodman was encored. Cr Stephens thanked Captain and Mrs Davies for providing such a splendid entertainment at their own cost for the benefit of the new hall, and his remarks were endorsed by the hall secretary, Mr Alf Davey. *** AS the outcome of the combined deputation from the Frankston Shire Council and the Seaford Progress Association, which waited on the Minister for Forests on the 18th ult., representatives of the Forests Commission, the State Rivers and Water Supply Commission and the Public Works Department visited the Seaford Pine Plantation on Thursday, July 21st, to investigate the complaint made by the deputation that considerable damage was done to farms on the low lying country, upon which the plantation drainage had been concentrated. The party was joined by Mr Sambell, the shire engineer, and was met at the plantation by Crs Latham, Howell and Armstrong, and Messrs Martin, Stewart, Macnamara and Klauer. After inspecting the country, Mr Horsfield, one of the visiting officers, said no doubt the considerable volume of drainage which came from the plantation would do considerable damage when simply allowed to find its own course, and the Government would doubtless assist in alleviating the trouble.

He said the Narre Warren Progress Association had been agitating to have a drainage system carried out in their district, and upon an investigation of the levels, it seemed quite possible that a combined drainage scheme could be carried out which would trap water from reaching the Carrum and Seaford lowlands. He also said it would be quite practicable to combine this scheme with the Kananook Creek improvement scheme, because water could be dropped into the creek from perhaps, 6ft. above tides, thus ensuring a thorough scour. The further improvement of creek would consist of dredge grading from the inflow of this water, somewhere near present pipe culvert at Martin’s to Carrum and Frankston outlets. A new outlet would be made at Carrum and Mr Horsfield explained that the flow would be under a proper system of control, and the Government would contribute liberally to the scheme. The whole of those deriving benefit would be loaded with the cost, including residents along the creek at Seaford and Frankston. Mr Horsfield was assured by those present that his scheme seemed to provide the solution of two very great difficulties and expressed the hope that the preliminary survey would be proceeded with immediately. Mr Horsfield said he would report to his Department, and more will be heard of the matter at an early date. *** From the pages of the Frankston and Somerville Standard, 29 July 1921

THE MEANING OF EXISTENCE... AND OTHER SHORT STORIES

Auto-mattock for the People By Stuart McCullough I HAD my second shot of vaccine. As for side effects, I experienced some fatigue and can now read other people’s thoughts. Which is, if I’m being honest, both a blessing and a curse. If you’re inexplicably against getting vaccinated because you think that it’s part of a Government plot to steal your dreams, there’s no need to email me because I’ve already read your thoughts and mentally weeded out the unsavoury comments. And, frankly, having looked at your dreams, I’m not sure anyone would want to steal them, even if you accidentally left the window down and the engine running. Just saying. My father also had his second jab last week and can now rightly claim his place in the ‘fully vaccinated’ column. His side effects included fatigue and being a dreadful cook, although the latter may not be a side effect as such; more a lifestyle choice. Sometimes it occurs to me that we’re alike. After my first vaccination, I refused to accept the notion of side effects and tried to go for a ten-kilometre run and wondered why I was moving in slow motion. My father doesn’t run. He does chores. Side effects or not, the day after the jab he’d be doing work in the yard regardless. Throughout my childhood, my father occupied his time on the weekends doing chores. Mostly they involved chopping things up, burning them or placing them in piles. These were not activities that came naturally to him. Despite suffering a total absence of horticultural skills that earned him the

PAGE 28

Southern Peninsula News

nickname ‘The Black Hand’, he even created a vegetable patch. Not that the results were edible. But no matter, you could always count on one thing: my father would be carrying his mattock. It is, without doubt, his favourite tool. Mattocks are the unsung heroes of work in the backyard. And yet, for 4 August 2021

reasons I can’t quite put my gardengloved finger on, mattocks don’t have the kind of notoriety other tools enjoy. A spanner is both a tool and a term of address for someone you don’t like very much. A screwdriver is also a popular cocktail. The axe has megawatt stardom; although does suffer an

unwelcome association with a particular sub-genre of homicidal maniac. But no one ever really talks about a mattock. For my father, it’s the tool for every occasion. Got a stump that needs to be pulled out? Fetch the mattock. A trench that needs digging to ensure that house doesn’t flood? The mattock will sort things out quick smart. Having trouble cutting up that steak? The mattock’s the answer. Who’d have thought one simple garden tool could root out blackberry bushes, dig holes, make whites even whiter and turn a sandwich into a banquet? Other than vaccinate you against Covid, there’s not much it can’t do. The mattock is the Swiss-Army knife of tools. Which makes it all the more mysterious as to why my father never gifted me a mattock of my very own. It’s not as though he hasn’t had plenty of chances. Decades of birthdays and Christmases have passed without so much as a dusting bellow or scythe, much less a full-blown mattock. That said, he did once give me a raised garden bed which, although very thoughtful, required assembly and, to this time, remains in as many distinct pieces as the day I received it. Mattocks don’t need to be put together – they come fully assembled. It’s part of their charm. Lately, I’ve been looking at the garden. And not just because of the fox I spotted there last week. Parts are overgrown and are demanding attention or they just might threaten to overwhelm the house proper. And so it is that once full-lockdown was replaced by ‘lockdown light’ I headed to Bunnings. Un-

supervised. I’ve never really shopped for garden tools. They’ve always just kind of been…there. Being generally unfamiliar with hardware stores and hardware stores being generally gigantic, I wandered aimlessly for some time before coming across a (pitch)fork in the road that told me I must be getting close. I appreciate that I could have asked someone for directions, but after a couple of weeks of not leaving the house, I really wasn’t really in a hurry. The first shock when it comes to mattocks is that there are options. The prices vary significantly, as do the colours. I wasn’t sure if it mattocks were like sneakers and whether I should buy a range of shades to ensure I had one for any occasion. I did, however, quickly eliminate the option of dropping one hundred bucks on a single tool. Presumably, if you’re spending a hundred bucks on a mattock, you’ll be using it to dig a hole to bury your money in. Ultimately, I chose a mid-priced blue mattock, because it matches my eyes. Already, I’ve put it to use. Just like my father did, I spent Saturday morning with mattock in hand, digging up a tree root and tearing up an overgrown garden bed. I felt strangely complete. Tomorrow, I may well take my mattock to work. I’m not sure what use it will have, but I feel reassured that it’s within reach at all times. I should have done it years ago, but now that I have my mattock I have finally, albeit belatedly, embraced adulthood. It was bound to happen eventually. stuart@stuartmccullough.com

Rosebud stop Stonecats in season restart DIVISION ONE

Picture: Craig Barrett

By Brodie Cowburn FOOTBALL is back after another COVID-19 shutdown. The senior MPNFL season restarted without crowds on Saturday afternoon. Division One leaders Frankston YCW struggled in their return to the field, falling to defeat against Rosebud. Rosebud took the game to the Stonecats right from the first bounce at Olympic Oval. They led by five goals at half time. After an even third term, Rosebud sealed the win with an impressive final quarter. They ended up defeating the ladder leaders by 39 points 17.13 (115) to 11.10 (76). The loss saw Frankston YCW drop down to second. Keegan Downie had a day out. He kicked seven goals in a best on ground showing. It was a family affair for Dromana on Saturday, as they took on Mt Eliza. William, Daniel, Samuel, and Joshua Guerts all took to the field for the Tigers. William Guerts was the best on ground for Dromana, who claimed an impressive come from behind win. The Tigers trailed the Redlegs by 28 at half time. They kicked 1.6 in a dismal first half. Dromana looked a different side after the half time break. They held Mt Eliza goalless in the second half while scoring 10 of their own. Dromana ran out winners over the Redlegs 11.11 (77) to 6.11 (47). At Greg Beck Oval, Frankston Bombers notched up an impressive victory over Sorrento. The Sharks have had a difficult year, and Saturday was no exception. A seven goals to two final quarter doomed them to a 42 point loss. The Bombers won 13.8 (86) to 6.8 (44). Khan Haretuku kicked four goals. Harrison Prior and Sam Fox also played well. Edithvale-Aspendale worked their way off the bottom of the ladder by defeating Red Hill 11.13 (79) to 14.9 (93). Pines now sit last after losing to Bonbeach by 120 points. Bonbeach’s big win sees them move to the top of the ladder.

DIVISION TWO

By Brodie Cowburn LANGWARRIN look unstoppable heading into the end of the 2021 season. The Kangaroos took on Mornington in a clash between first and second on Saturday. What could have been an even matchup between two premiership contenders turned into thrashing, as Langwarrin ran away with an 85 point win. Langwarrin led by four points at quarter time, but really put their foot down in the second quarter. A nine goals to one second term saw Langwarrin move out to an unassailable 54 point lead at the main break. Langwarrin continued to score freely in the second half. They ended up putting 24 goals on the board for the game. The final score read Mornington 11.9 (75) to Langwarrin 24.16 (160). Ruckman Matthew Naughton was named best on ground for Langwarrin for the second game running. Jesse Murphy also impressed with five majors. Jackson Calder scored seven of Mornington’s goals. There was also some action at the other end of the ladder, as 11th and 12th placed Crib Point and Tyabb faced off. The Magpies got the better of the Yabbies. They piled on 18 goals for the afternoon to get themselves a 47 point win. Seven goals from Sam Glenn couldn’t get Karingal the points against Hastings at Ballam Park Reserve. Both sides traded blows in an entertaining first half. The Bulls went into the main break with a three point lead.

goals for Rye to help them claim a narrow victory 8.11 (59) to 7.15 (57). At Glover Reserve, Devon Meadows lost to Seaford 7.3 (45) to 16.17 (113). Somerville had a good day at home, defeating Pearcedale 13.16 (94) to 5.4 (34).

Mid-season makeover for Pines SOCCER

By Craig MacKenzie FRANKSTON Pines has been involved in a major squad overhaul as it zeroes in on its first championship success in seven years. Simon Webster and twin brother Scott are believed to have accepted offers from State 3 rival Rowville Eagles while first-choice keeper Aeseli Batikasa expects to be sidelined for the remainder of the season. The knee injury the big Fijian keeper suffered against Brighton has not responded to treatment and he will have an MRI this week. But the news is not all bad for the State 3 leader as head coach Kevin “Squizzy” Taylor has brought in a number of new signings. His capture of Fijian international midfielder Nickel Chand and Marinos Panayi from Beaumaris was the start of a squad makeover that gathered momentum last week with the signings of Andy Skledar and UK duo Tom Hull and Lewis Coyle. Skledar is a former Pines, Langwarrin, Mornington and South Springvale player who will continue to coach Kingston City’s junior NPL under-17s while playing for Pines. Hull is a goalkeeper and during an 18-month stint with Brunos’s Magpies he was named Gibraltar national league young player of the year before arriving in Melbourne to play with Casey Comets in 2019. He has also played with South Springvale, Doncaster Rovers and Dandenong City. Coyle arrived here from the UK in 2018 to play with Goulburn Valley Suns in the NPL. He played for Welsh club Rhyl and can be used as a central defender or striker and at almost 196 centimetres is an imposing figure who should boost Pines’ set piece threat. Both Hull and Coyle live in Sandhurst so their proximity to Carrum Downs Recreation Reserve is ideal. Panayi, Hull and Coyle featured in the starting line-up on Saturday as Pines put a major dent in Hampton East Brighton’s promotion hopes with a comprehensive 4-0 win at Dendy Park. Fijian international Tito Vodawaqa’s hat-trick and a stunning Joe O’Connor goal took care of business. In NPL1 Langwarrin came away from Shepparton with a point last weekend after drawing 1-1 with Goulburn Valley Suns. A superb 30-metre Callum Goulding strike late in the first half gave

weekend. Substitute Charlie O’Connell and Lachie McMinimee scored for Baxter while Somerville player-coach Dave Greening had mixed fortunes putting the visitors ahead in the 39th minute but receiving a straight red in the 89th minute after a verbal exchange with an assistant referee. In State 5 Mount Martha’s 2-1 home win over Pakenham United gave Chris Sanderson’s side its first win of the season. Ethan Sanderson’s switch from midfield to central striker played a major part in the result. Mount Martha was 1-0 down at halftime but in the 66th minute Jeff Higgin’s header sent David Oswald clear on the right and his low ball across the area was finished well by Sanderson at the back post. In the 85th minute Sanderson’s run into the penalty area ended when he was brought down but the youngster converted the resultant penalty. Other State 5 locals didn’t fare so well with Aspendale Stingrays going down 3-2 away to Casey Panthers and Rosebud losing 2-0 at home to White Star Dandenong. Ben Garside Weinert and Justin Lampert scored for the Stingrays in the second half. Top trio out: Scott Webster (left) and Aeseli Batikasa. Webster and twin brother Simon have left Frankston Pines while Batikasa could miss the remainder of the season through injury. Pictures: Darryl Kennedy

Langy the lead at half-time but Suns substitute Fraser Gosstray snatched an equaliser in the 89th minute. In State 1 the top-of-the-table clash between Mornington and BoroondaraCarey Eagles ended up in a 0-0 stalemate at Dallas Brooks Park on Saturday. Josh Heaton and Steve Elliott were excellent at the back for Mornington while in midfield Luke Goulding had his best game yet for the Seagulls. In State 2 both local sides grabbed a point, Peninsula Strikers drawing 2-2 with Collingwood City at Centenary Park on Saturday while Skye United drew 3-3 with Heatherton United at Bosnia and Herzegovina Centre on Friday night. Strikers were on the back foot early and Ollie Hazel’s cultured left foot did the damage in the 17th minute with a low strike from the edge of the area to put Collingwood ahead. But five minutes later Strikers hit back when good work by Riley Anderton on the right ended with a Jai Power close range shot after Collingwood failed to clear.

Harry McCartney reports that Blake Hicks opened the scoring for Seaford in the 14th minute and in the 28th minute an excellent lob from Almand Thomas over a square Chelsea defence was struck first time by Dylan Waugh to make it 2-0. Hicks grabbed a double in the 38th minute with a volley but Max Timuska-Carr brought Chelsea back into the contest two minutes later when he beat the advancing Seaford keeper Hayden Hicks and knocked the ball into the open goal. Chelsea’s second came in the 87th minute following Seaford’s inability to defend a corner allowing Piers Brelsford to finish in a crowded penalty area.

Anderton and Power were involved with another goal in the 32nd minute this time Anderton finishing from close range. The match finished the way it had started with Collingwood bossing the ball and appropriately it was Phil Ball who equalised from the penalty spot in the 78th minute after a handball decision that confused some Strikers players. On a positive note Ben Doree is back and came off the bench in the second half. Skye found itself 2-1 down at halftime against Heatherton with Jason Nowakowski scoring for the locals just before the interval. Skye came roaring back in the second period when Mikey Turner finished well following a square ball from Mark O’Connor in the 50th minute and a long-range strike from Caleb Nicholes in the 64th minute caught Heatherton keeper Senad Ahmetovic off his line to make it 3-2 to Skye. Heatherton’s Setmir Zijai levelled in the 91st minute and three minutes later Daniel Attard was brought down in-
