Anger over new planning rules Keith Platt keith@mpnews.com.au THE state government has adopted new planning rules that open the way for three-storey houses in towns across the Mornington Peninsula. Previously protected by restrictive planning overlays, the shire’s planning policy is now likely to be overruled by state laws. Council officers - without reference to council - will be able to issue

permits for developments worth up to $250,000 in green wedge zones, $500,000 in commercial areas and $1 million in industrial areas. The mayor Cr Bev Colomb last week issued a statement which said the council “has expressed concern” at the changes and wants to meet with Planning Minister Richard Wynne. However, the details about what residents and ratepayers can expect were outlined days earlier by Red Hill ward councillor David Gill who predicted the

new planning rules “may lead to further degrading of town and rural character on the Mornington Peninsula”. On Thursday he predicted the changes, which apply across the state, would be “a nail in the coffin of the state Labor government. This will be on a slow boil people as people gradually find out”. Specifically and affecting most people are regulations that allow threestorey houses “being built right next to you”, Cr Gill said. “The only protection we might have

are [the peninsula’s planning] overlays, but they will be tested in VCAT, which will probably go with state law. “There’s a lot of doubt [about what the outcome would be], but parts of Hastings, Mornington and Rosebud don’t have those [protective] overlays. “The government did it so there can be intensive development in Melbourne.” In her statement the mayor said the council “has expressed concern over recent changes in state planning that could allow much taller buildings to be

United front: Angry members of the Australian Volunteer Coast Guard, Volunteer Marine Rescue Victoria and Southern Peninsula Rescue off Mornington. A lack of money has left them high and dry. Picture: Yanni

No budget lifeline for bay rescue groups Stephen Taylor steve@mpnews.com.au VOLUNTEER groups which play a huge role in rescuing those in distress on Port Phillip and Western Port bays are “bewildered” at being overlooked in last month’s state budget. The 26 marine search-and-rescue units in Victoria, include the Victorian flotillas of the Australian Volunteer Coast Guard, Volunteer Marine Rescue Victoria and Southern Peninsula Rescue Squad. They say they are the only emergency service providers not to receive regular government funding and are unable to work to a budget. A Coast Guard vessel is based at Safety Beach, the VMR at Mornington and the Southern Peninsula Rescue Squad at Blairgowrie. Their rescue work takes them into both bays. The Coast Guard’s national public

relations captain Deanne Semmens said the went on strike in February 2016 to “draw attention to our plight and save marine search and rescue in the state from going down the gurgler”. “Now all marine units in Victoria are standing shoulder to shoulder to fix this problem,” Ms Semmens said. “The problem is that we are small and easily overlooked.” The volunteer units – which rely on public donations and the occasional government grant – are after a minimum $5 million in recurrent funding “just to survive”. “Considering the boating community contributes around $4.5 billion to the Victorian economy annually why can’t we get the $5 million we need to provide them with the best marine emergency service possible,” Ms Semmens said. “We need this and the boating community deserve nothing less. “We need adequate funding and we

need to be sustainable. It’s like [the government has] forgotten us.” Emergency services minister James Merlino said the government “greatly values” the work of marine search and rescue volunteers. He said they “selflessly devote their time and skills to promote the safety and wellbeing of the community”. “In the past 12 months, Emergency Management Victoria has undertaken significant work within the marine search-and-rescue sector. EMV is working with the government to identify funding sources so that [the volunteer organisations] can operate on a sustainable basis.” Ms Semmens said the volunteer groups had provided a boating safety back-up to paid rescue services, such as the water police, for up to 60 years – overnight as well as on weekends and public holidays. “This group of passionate seafaring

volunteers are critical for all waterway users, whether at ports, seas or lakes in Victoria. We are not a large group of volunteers but we are an important one,” she said. “The state government could not afford to have us off the water.” She said volunteers had done a “lot of tin rattling and barbecues” over the years to raise money to keep boats on the water, but much of the money was spent on operational costs and training. The Carrum flotilla’s insurance bill is $10,000 a year. “That’s not what most volunteers signed up for. They’d rather be out there helping rescue people.” Mr Merlino said the marine searchand-rescue sector was funded through the boating safety and facilities program, volunteer emergency services equipment program and valuing volunteers programs. The 2014 Inquiry into Marine Res-

cue Services in Victoria – whose recommendations Mr Merlino said the government was actively implementing – confirmed the boating safety and facilities program was the main source of funding for marine search-and-rescue services. The inquiry found the three programs typically offered single-purpose grants for vessels, equipment or training for vessel operation qualifications but “were not intended to finance ongoing operational costs, such as maintenance or land-based vehicle running costs”. “The marine search and rescue sector has shown it can come together to initiate change and implement positive reform which is to be commended,” Mr Merlino said. “There is a real sense of achievement in the sector, and this improves the ability of [volunteer] units to provide an effective service to the Victorian boating community.”

THE

SUPERHITS SHOW

Caught on camera: Flinders MP Greg Hunt MP visited Rye to meet with community leaders and announce funding for CCTV cameras.

Performed by multi award winning entertainer Steve Cummins

Cameras focused for a safer Rye THE death of David Cassai in Rye on New Year’s Eve 2012 was the catalyst for the installation of street CCTV cameras last week. Flinders MP Greg Hunt met with community leaders on Friday 19 May to announce that the federal government had provided $200,000 for six CCTV cameras covering the foreshore and shopping precinct. “That fatal one-punch hit took the life of an innocent young man and sent a ripple-effect through an entire community,” he said. “The installation of CCTVs will assist in reducing anti-social behaviour, deterring would-be offenders and helping people to feel safe.” Mr Cassai’s mother Caterina Politi said she hoped the cameras would help reduce violent and anti-social behaviour. “I hope the cameras only capture butterflies, rather than violence” she said. “Cameras are one way of helping to deter people from committing crimes and, paired with

other measures, they all contribute to making our streets safer. “In the unfortunate event of an incident, these cameras are incredibly important.” Mornington Peninsula Shire mayor Cr Bev Colomb said the cameras were “crucial in ensuring community safety”. “Our community has shown a desire for CCTV systems to help improve the safety of our townships,” she said. Mr Hunt said CCTV cameras played a vital role in deterring crime and assisting police in apprehending offenders. “Footage … will be monitored in Rosebud and will be used by police in the event of an incident in the area. “Everyone has the right to feel safe in their community and these cameras will send a clear message to any would-be offenders that they will be caught. “The CCTV cameras will make Rye a safer place for residents and visitors.”

Socking it to depression Neil Walker neil@mpnews.com.au DOCTORS need to start helping themselves as well as others. That’s the message a Frankston Hospital cardiologist hopes to spread by encouraging medical profession colleagues to show support for the all-toooften hidden sufferers of depression in their ranks. Dr Geoff Toogood hopes a “crazysocks4docs” day last Thursday (1 June) when medical colleagues wore bright and “crazy” socks will become an annual event to let doctors, nurses and anyone working in the at times highly stressful medical profession to seek help if they ever feel depressed. Dr Toogood had the idea for the crazy socks day partly from personal experience when he did not feel too good and faced a bout of severe depression in 2013. The doctor said he had suicidal thoughts because he wanted mental anguish and pain to end despite not wanting to die. “I think we’re bad at looking after our own health. We’re slow at recognising problems,” Dr Toogood said. He decided to launch the crazysocks4docs initiative after he accidentally wore odd socks — his dog stole one — and colleagues asked him if he “was OK”. It made him realise people, despite often being well meaning, do not know when someone is struggling with “invisible” depression. “I’m trying to break down the stigma doctors can face when they have mental health issues and it’s about asking them to get help and showing support for them,” Dr Toogood said. “We lose colleagues across the country to suicide regularly.” Career discrimination and being judged as “weak” by some colleagues often stop doctors and medical professionals seeking help with sometimes fatal consequences, according to Dr Toogood.

Physicians heal thyselves: Dr Geoff Toogood wants doctors to open up and talk to each other about stresses and strains felt in the medical profession. Picture: Gary Sissons

He says understanding of mental health problems afflicting the medical profession “is inching forward but it’s not fantastic”. The doctor also hopes to partly reclaim the word “crazy” from meaning “mentally disturbed”. “I tried to come up with a fun idea to unite doctors across the country and in the past, ‘crazy’ meant ‘fun’.” The Beaumaris resident has worked at Frankston Hospital for more than 20 years. He says he now feels “really good” but is also always aware of trying to be in “the green zone” or “amber zone” instead of slipping into “the red zone” of severe depression and suicidal thoughts. “Now I’m much more aware if I’m struggling or tired. I’ll make sure I do all the things to help me make sure I don’t go down that path again.” And seek help from others instead of “bottling it all up inside”. n Support and information about suicide prevention can be obtained at Lifeline on 13 11 14 or the Suicide Call Back Service on 1300 659 467.

Beach survivours: Three hooded plovers hatched from one nest at Gunnamatta, above, and the 20-year-old JZ, left, was not scared to tackle marauding gulls that came too near to his home. Pictures: Glenn Ehmke

Delight as plovers fly into record books Keith Platt keith@mpnews.com.au USUALLY the bad news story of the breeding season, hooded plovers on the Mornington Peninsula this year have set a new record with 13 chicks taking to the air. The successful breeding season coincides with regulations which banned dogs at all times from beaches within Mornington Peninsula National Park, the plovers’ main nesting area. Elsewhere, storms battered beaches, wiping out hundreds of nests in Victoria and South Australia leading to the lowest breeding success for many species over the past 10 years. At this time last year just two hooded plover chicks had managed to survive.

One nest at Gunnamatta this year saw three chicks survive, “something almost unheard of on the peninsula”, according to Friends of the Hooded Plover president Diane Lewis. “Other areas that have long suffered consistent failure such as Koonya, Montfords and Fowlers beaches also produced stunning successes.” Ms Lewis said the latest successes were a tribute to the “decade long effort and persistence of Parks Victoria rangers, Friends of Hooded Plover volunteers, BirdLife Australia researchers and everyone who visited the beaches during summer. They all helped by doing their little bit, by keeping clear of the signed nesting/ chick foraging areas”. This breeding season the plovers in the Mornington Peninsula National Park were monitored by 35 volunteers

and Parks Victoria staff, with 3000 observations recorded on the BirdLife online data portal. Fences and signs protected 81 nests, of which 59 failed. Volunteers reported 36 chicks hatching and 13 chicks surviving to fly. A plover banded as a fledgling in 1997 at Gunnamatta by Associate Professor Mike Weston of Deakin University and identified as “JZ” and its partner “XU” nested successfully at Kooya. Ms Lewis said it was “truly amazing” that JZ had survived for 20 years “in such a harsh environment”. “Hoodies’ are home bodies: when they find a good home they keep it. JZ has probably never left the peninsula in his 20 years and has called Koonya West beach home for longer than many of us have had our homes,” she said.

Winter Wise Beat the winter chill by learning how to make your home more comfortable and save on heating bills.

“In his time JZ has incubated at least several dozen nests and has hatched more chicks than we can count. Long-time volunteers have watched as he and his partners have tried and tried and tried to raise their chicks but, sadly, at best only a handful of his chicks have survived to flying age. “In some years he and his partner have laid five nests with none surviving. But he’s never given up in 20 years. So many failures have taught JZ to be extremely wary and very, very good at protecting his nests and chicks.” Ms Lewis said JZ and XU fended off silver gulls, moved chicks away from beachgoers and kept their chicks clear of high tides. “One if his two-week-old flightless chicks survived being chased by a dog for more than a kilometer along the

entire Koonya West beach, as well as dealing with huge tides and storms, foxes and who knows what else.” Glenn Ehmke, of BirdLife Australia, said visitors to the beaches where hooded plovers bred were “generally wonderful this season with much enthusiasm and interest in the little birds’ battle against the odds’’. ”It serves to show that these seemingly helpless threatened birds are not actually helpless at all,” Ms Ehmke said. “They are actually incredibly adept at negotiating a barrage of threats that would make the best of us shudder in terror, while keeping their family safe. All they need is a little help from us in the form of some space, and they have a fighting chance to beat the odds and raise a family.” Details: www.hoodedplover.com or hploversmornpen@ gmail.com

The point, a place for inspiration By Teresa Murphy THE wild, elemental beauty of Point Nepean, on the tip of the Mornington Peninsula is an awe-inspiring experience for any visitor. For the creatively inclined, it must be particularly intense - especially if they are lucky enough to live within the landscape for a while. Balnarring Beach artist Amanda Nelson was one so fortunate early last month (May) when she was artistin-residence at Police Point for two weeks, staying at the historic gatekeeper's cottage. But before luxuriating in and interpreting the dramatic surrounds, her immediate reaction was rather more prosaic. "After 18 years of housework, it was just bliss being on my own," said Nelson, who has three daughters with her musician husband, Marty NelsonWilliams. "I could cook whenever I wanted and listen to whatever music I wanted. But after three days I started to get a bit bored with my own company. "Then I started questioning my purpose in my own space, but in a good way because I worked through the descent to create." And create she did with inspired passion, producing a series of striking mixed media works collectively titled “In Place”, showing at Oak Hill gallery, Mornington, this month(June). Point Nepean has a rich and multilayered European history but it is the indigenous connection that drew Nelson. The traditional owners of Point Nepean are the Boon wurrung balug;

Past and present: Amanda Nelson with one of her works depicting life before European settlement at Point Nepean.

the beach at Point Nepean was for secret women's business, most likely connected to fertility as dolphins and seals bred close by. "Part of the story I'm trying to tell of place is of a traditional women's meeting place where the first people's

young women would come for their ceremonies," Nelson said. Once she fell into a creative rhythym, her days were filled with walks, photography, drawing and painting, writing, reading, and listening to stories by a local elder.

Her favourite “place” down there was London Bridge, near Portsea back beach, especially the cave which she could reach at low tide. "To feel so connected to nature, to really sit and listen to space, to have those views of sea and sky, I felt so

blessed to have had time down there. It is a very special place." Amanada nelson’s exhibition “In Place” runs until 28 June at Oak Hill Gallery, 100 Mornington-Tyabb Rd, Mornington, oakhillgallery.com.au; amandanelsonart.com

Rotarians celebrate club’s 70th NINETY members, past members and friends of Mornington Rotary Club dined out to celebrate the club’s 70th anniversary. During the lunch at Brooklands, Mornington, on Sunday 28 May club president John Parkinson presented Rotary Paul Harris Awards to past presidents Frank Fisher and John Renowden for their continued support of Rotary projects as well as Graeme Lyell, coordinator of Mornington Yacht Club’s Sailability program. Over the years the club has supported schools, bought medical equipment and boats, built gazebos in parks, and awarded scholarships for the Australian Rotary Health Rural Nursing Program and medical research. “The Ron Fallaw Memorial Scholarship awarded four years ago has seen Dr Bevan Main complete his doctorate at Melbourne University where his area incorporated work on Parkinson’s disease,” Rotarian Victor Sullivan said. “He has now been invited to work at Georgetown University, Washington studying the effects of concussion both in the sporting and armed forces areas.” Mornington Rotary is the oldest Rotary club on the Mornington Peninsula and one of the oldest clubs in Victoria.

for choristers,” member Jill Linley said. “The impromptu joining together of voices as, country by country, choirs led their favourite warm-up, was wonderful. “And then, to finish, a spontaneous round of Happy Birthday, as choir after choir sang it in their own language [created] a wonderful sense of unity among musicians.” It was goosebumps, tears and excitement for chorister Christine Manktelow: “Concert Day: the buzz of gathering in our finery at the stage door, then being ushered up, up, up, up to our Green Room,” she recalled. “The wonderful Aboa Gospel Choir from Finland was singing: “We are not alone” as their warm up. Then we were lining up and going down, down, down, down and suddenly – we were on stage at Carnegie Hall – such magic memories!” Mr Griffiths told Mornington Peninsula Chorale members after the concert: “Dear singers, words cannot adequately express how proud I am of your performance in Sunday’s concert in the Stern Auditorium/Perelman Stage at Carnegie Hall. “The review was wonderful and your high performance level came forth with energy, excitement and polish that resulted in an overwhelmingly positive response from the audience, orchestra members and the critics. Bravi!! “If you have not had a chance to see/read the review, I am including the link so you may relish in the afterglow of a performance well done.” He said he was especially pleased with the critics’ comment: “The chorus is to be congratulated on a very polished performance which suggested a high level of preparation.”

A LONG-AWAITED dream came true for members of Mornington Peninsula Chorale when they sang at New York’s Carnegie Hall earlier this year. About 50 members of the 100-member chorale made the trip to perform in the Sir Karl Jenkins Requiem as part of the Distinguished Concerts International New York (DCINY), in January. Alongside them were combined international choirs from Finland, Spain, Germany, Australia, New Zealand, UK and US. The invitation to sing came about after the chorale performed Sir Karl’s Armed Man at Frankston Arts Centre in 2015 for the Anzac Day centenary celebrations. Senior chorister Judi McKee wrote to Sir Karl who invited them to audition for a performance. They sent an audio-visual tape over – he loved it – and New York became a reality. The performance was the first in the 2017 series of concerts arranged by concerts international with Sir Karl conducting. At Carnegie Hall the combined choirs participated in two, three-hour-master classes conducted by artistic director and conductor Jonathan Griffith. “This was the first opportunity for all 300 participants from around the world to come together and sing,” Ms McKee said. “Sir Karl was present at each rehearsal where he spoke about his work and was then available afterwards for photos and to sign scores.” Hearts were aflutter when the choir took part in a full rehearsal on the morning of the performance: 2.30pm, Sunday 15 January, with the full DCINY orchestra. “The warm ups in the Green Room, prior to the performance, were particularly memorable

PUPILS at Somerville Rise Primary School have been given an insight into Aboriginal culture as part of the school’s respectful relationships program. Adam Mageness, above, of the Bunurong community was at the school last Friday week to perform a welcome to country and smoking ceremony. “Respectful relationships is at the forefront of [our] school values,” teacher and course coordinator Di Wheeler said. Mr Mageness had been asked to the school as “recognition of the Indigenous people as the first Australians and to promote an awareness of the history and culture of the Indigenous people in the area”. The pupils had been “delighted” by a yidaki performance, which involves using a digeridoo

to mimic the sounds of Australian animals. “Then the smoking ceremony began, using the leaves of three native trees,” Ms Wheeler said. “The native cherry, a natural fire retardant, creates the smoke. This represents family, as the small red berries need another plant as a host in order to grow. “The eucalyptus tree has many varieties, representing all people, and of course the leaves burn well. Finally the black wattle represents the elders of the land.” The school has renamed junior school building Djilak Djirri, a Bunurong word meaning to play, explore and learn. “This is just the beginning of our school’s new connection with the Bunurong community as part of our respectful relationships program,” Ms Wheeler said.

Artist responds to lure of the Yukon MCCRAE artist and jeweller Katrina Newman is the first Australian to be selected to participate on the Canadian Wilderness Artist Residency in the Yukon Territory this July and August. Newman was chosen from 42 applicants for the trip in which she and nine other artists will paddle 735 kilometres on the Yukon River from Whitehorse to Dawson City, in subarctic Canada, arriving in time for the Riverside Arts Festival. Newman will exhibit her work and provide a short training course for young people at the Riverside Arts Festival in Dawson City. “I’ve always understood that to create great work or to achieve greatness you will never do it by playing safe, so what better way to work outside my comfort zone than in the wilds of northern Canada,” Newman said. “It’s going to be a wonderful opportunity for me on this adventure, a once-in-a-lifetime experience. Away from the safety of my studio, I’ll be compelled to explore my new environment, the different landscapes, to draw on the new colours and light, the new materials and textures.” Geography has a huge impact on Newman’s jewellery. “My work has always been heavily influenced by the changing landscapes of my life; each ring or pendant is a glimpse into the Australian desert, the sea and its shores, and from travels that include West African countries Ghana and Mali,” she said. “The remoteness and exploration associated with this residency, the

Art on show THE 50th annual Flinders Art Show is being held over the Queen’s Birthday long weekend, 10-12 June. The opening is at 7pm, Friday 9 June and tickets are available at the door for $30 which includes wine, beer and canapes. Weekend opening hours are 10am-4pm Saturday and Sunday and 10am-2pm Monday. The art show was started in 1967 to help reinvigorate the women’s committee of St John’ s Church of England and to raise funds for parish work. Over the past eight years the committee has distributed more than $220,000 to peninsula charities and community groups.

time to connect with the people and places, will give me the opportunity to keep expanding and challenging my practice.” Newman is running a fundraising campaign with the support of the

Australian Cultural Fund to help pay for the residency. The cost is $3200, plus equipment costs, for which Ms Newman has received a 60 per cent adventure sponsorship discount from an Austral-

ian outdoor specialist supplier. All donations are tax deductible. Her studio, at 69 Cinerama Cr, McCrae, will open 10am-5pm on the Queen’s Birthday weekend, 10 and 11 June.

Shire’s ‘pathetic effort’ won’t increase adoptions What a pathetic effort from Mornington Peninsula Shire to have our ratepayer-funded community animal shelter at Mornington open to the public (without an appointment) for a whole two hours a week (“Animal benefits to flow from axed expo’s cash” The News 30/5/17). I hardly consider this an “ease of access” to a facility that is funded by us, the ratepayers. Shepparton, Mildura, Melton, RSPCA Pearcedale, GAWS, Save a Dog, and Animal Aid-Coldstream are some examples of pounds that are all open to the public at least five days a week, for at least three hours a day (no appointment needed and no paperwork required beforehand). As of today (31 May) there are only three pets up for adoption at the shire’s animal shelter, which is quite disturbing considering there are more than 1000 dogs and 700 cats impounded each year. There is normally only a handful of animals listed for adoption on Petrescue at any given time. I can’t imagine direct adoptions will increase dramatically with so few animals listed for adoption and minimal hours open to the public. Management has said that many of these animals are unsuitable for adoption. As a volunteer at this shelter for a year, I observed that most animals were highly suitable for adoption, and would make loving companions. Another barrier to direct adoptions is the long-winded adoption process the public has to endure to save the life of an animal. Prospective adopters have to email the shelter to get an adoption application form sent, fill it out, send it back and then wait to see if their application has been approved before they can even visit the shelter. This ridiculous process needs to be eliminated immediately. No kill shelter for Mornington. Rosy Fischer, Mornington

Seasonal change I take on board Ron and Gloria’s comments (“Change off leash rules in the off season” Letters 30/5/17) in extending hours for locals to use the beach to run our dogs. Although I understand there needs to be restrictions to allow non-dog people to use the beach, it seems to be way lopsided in the hours divided between the groups. As a dog owner and regular user of McCrae and nearby beaches to exercise family and dog, I do find it very difficult to conform and also to watch many others (particularly in the on season) not conforming. As Locals (including our beloved dogs) we need more consideration to our use of our beach. Mornington Peninsula Shire needs to seriously look at a better balance in the off, and maybe even the on season, to prevent the many breaches. Robyn and Wayne Berger, McCrae

Not dogs of war Good Grief. Some dog owners do have a superior sense of entitlement about themselves and their dogs? Some dog owners reserve the

right for their canine friend to crap where it likes (how many dog owners actually pick up after their dog?); harass unsuspecting humans who, incidentally, have the right to roam leash free; attack other dogs, and call it interacting, on the leash or otherwise. According to Ron Moore, (“Change off leash rules in the off season” Letters 30/5/17) his dad, my dad and me, being a Vietnam veteran, fought to give him and other dog owners the divine right to break the laws of this land so that their dogs can roam free wherever and whenever they like. What absolute rot. Freedom for dogs was, and is, way way down on the totem pole as a reason for going to war. With freedom comes responsibility. John Cain, McCrae

Schools lose out Dunkley MP Chris Crewther states that “all 51 schools in Dunkley will receive a funding increase under the federal Coalition’s plan from their current funding levels” (“All Schools Benefit” Letters 29/5/17). But the reality is that Victorian schools will be $630 million worse off under [Prime Minister Malcolm] Turnbull’s new funding model in 2018 and 2019. The Victorian government has met its obligations with full funding allocations for 2015 to 2018. Why? Because this funding is vital. Teachers across Victoria are reporting it’s making a real difference for students. By cutting this funding the federal Liberal government is cutting funding which could have paid for more than 5000 teachers or more than 6000 allied health staff (such as psychologists, speech therapists and social workers) to provide critical support that meets the needs of our students at risk of falling behind. This funding isn’t just an abstract figure on a page - it’s extra teachers in the classroom, literacy support for those kids falling behind, numeracy experts, psychologists, speech pathologists. This funding is an investment in the future of children. Families in Dunkley deserve better. Families deserve the best education possible. I call on Chris Crewther MP to stand up for families in Dunkley and call for these cuts to be reversed. Sonya Kilkenny, Labor MP for Carrum

Eye opener Anyone labouring under the delusion, as the Andrews government appears to be, that family violence is a recent phenomenon, is exclusively the domain of men, and needs almost $2,000,000,000 of Victorian taxpayers’ money spent on it, might do well to read the “Unlawful assault” article from the Mornington Standard of 26 May, 1917, reprinted in 22 May edition of The News. It’s quite an eye-opener. Michael Long, Frankston

Improve service Your article about extra services to be added to route 887 from Rosebud to Monash University, Frankston via the train station, includes a photo of the original Pen Bus which was a tourist coach from Ventura buses(“Students’ bus here to stay” 23/5/17). This service was replaced by a metropolitan bus service no 887 some two years ago after much political infighting by various organisations which has been well documented previously. Bus route 887 currently operates with a very limited number of pick-up and drop-off points along the route between Rosebud and Frankston. This requires university students and the public to travel to the nominated pick up points to use the service. An improvement would be to allow users to board the bus at any stop from Rosebud to Mt Eliza then run express to Frankston. The extra time would be minimal as the route goes from Safety Beach and Mt Martha to Mornington along the Esplanade rather than Nepean Highway. The claim by Nepean MP Martin Dixon that he along with others have “dragged the Andrews government kicking and screaming to this outcome” seems to be typical of an MP now in opposition who had previously been in government. A rather a sad state of affairs I think. Bruce Jordan, Capel Sound

Backtracking bus What is this nonsense about “kicking and screaming” regarding the Penbus and Route 887? To set the record straight – the student bus was set up in 2012 under the federal Labor Gillard government with a three-year grant of $1.3 million to the Mornington Peninsula Shire. Students were left stranded when the Liberal Abbott federal government pulled the plug and held the Victorian state government to ransom to pick up the funding in 2015. Did we hear any kicking and screaming directed at the Liberal federal government from our the state Liberal Nepean MP Martin Dixon when this happened? No. Instead, in a marked example of political spin of calling the wrong kettle black, the Labor state government (elected in 2014) became the target of a torrent of shame and blame letters and articles from Martin Dixon’s office. The state Labor government, through the efforts of Upper House Labor MP Daniel Mulino and neighbouring Labor MP for Frankston, Paul Edbrooke, broke the standoff with the federal Liberals and provided temporary funding to keep the bus going after the 2015 June deadline. The recent Labor state budget, in partnership with Mornington Peninsula Shire, Frankston Council, and Monash University, has now guaranteed ongoing funding of the bus service for the future of our young people. The article prompted me to write because, to me, some comments and quotes made it sound like the Liberals were responsible for helping our students and saving the bus, where it was actually the opposite – they tried to dismantle it. Esther Gleixner, Flinders

Keep land public There are many parcels of land, owned or administered by Melbourne Water on the Mornington Peninsula. Some of these parcels of land are deemed in excess by Melbourne Water, and are

at the moment in the process of being sold to the highest bidder, if Mornington Peninsula Shire agrees to rezone them from recreational reserves to housing. These pieces of land have been used by our community for many years as passive and active recreation spaces. They also have become sanctuaries for local flora and fauna. A case in hand is the land is bounded by Jetty Rd, Cook Av, Bayview Rd and Herman St reserve, Rosebud. These pieces of land could be used to connect many of our fractured and spread out nature reserves and parks with each other. They would make great biolinks and preserve the local amenity. We should keep as much of our open spaces as possible and not commercialise them. Any land one of our state authorities deem to be in excess, should be automatically given to the local authority for use as open space or for public use. The pressure on our native environment is great enough as it is, without building up the remnant open space. The land mentioned above, if subdivided for housing, would have major easements on it for Melbourne Water’s pipeline along one side. So any unsuspecting buyer would be hamstrung in what can be built on these blocks. Let’s keep our open spaces as just that and make the peninsula a better place. Rupert Steiner, Balnarring Beach

Scrutineer applauded Good to see Clifford W Ellen is still monitoring other peoples’ letters (“Polly speak” Letters 30/5/17) and spreading his wit: half to John Cain’s letter and half to mine with a comment that warrants no reply except to say that misinterpretation can be forgiven because it is an intellectual thing, or lack of it, or an inability to properly read and comprehend; whereas misrepresentation is a deliberate strategy used by shysters, crooks and some government advertisements on television. Sometimes it’s marbles. I have all of mine but some people have lost a few. Brian A Mitchelson, Mornington

Court of Free speech Do we still have freedom of speech in Australia or has it been lost? I bring this up because of the silliness of the past couple of weeks over the issue of same sex marriage. First, Australian tennis icon Margaret Court states she will refuse to fly Qantas because CEO Alan Joyce states the airline supports gay marriage. To me, both are entitled to state their views, but Ms Court ups the ante with a threat to boycott the airline. Then follows a list of past and present tennis players calling for the renaming of Margaret Court Arena because of her opinion. What happens next? Mr Steiner’s mailman refuses to deliver his mail because of his views on a Queensland coal mine? Mr Cain’s garbo won’t pick up his bin because of his views on the local MP? Cliff Ellen won’t be served his morning coffee because he doesn’t have an opinion on much of anything? What happened to “ I put my view, you put yours and we both agree to disagree” without threats or intimidation? One can only hope that some form of tolerance for others beliefs can again be achieved.

Lawyer brings home state top legal award Neil Walker neil@mpnews.com.au A LAWYER working in Frankston and on the Mornington Peninsula has been recognised as one of the best in the legal business in Victoria. Canda Glanville, of Maurice Blackburn lawyers, who specialises in helping road trauma victims was named Victoria’s Suburban Lawyer of the Year by the Law Institute of Victoria last month. Ms Glanville, a principal and office manager at the legal firm’s Frankston office since its 2010 opening, who sometimes also works at the firm’s Rosebud office, said the award is “very exciting and quite a surprise”. The 38-year-old lawyer, a member of the Mornington Peninsula Lawyers Association, said “we’ve got a lot of great lawyers on the peninsula” so “the award is a win for the people of Frankston and the Peninsula, not just me”. “I’m a big advocate for being an excellent lawyer in the suburbs,” she said. “People think you can only get a great lawyer in the city but that’s not right.” Ms Glanville notes she and many of her legal profession colleagues often volunteer at the Peninsula Community Legal Centre to also try to offer legal services to those who can least afford it. Transport Accident Commission and VicRoads figures reveal there were nine fatalities and 185 serious injuries on Frankston and peninsula roads in 2015. In the past 12 months, there have been 108 incidents involving vehicles that required hospitalisation and three fatalities. “People are hurt when they come to see me. It impacts on them and their whole family so there’s a lot of emotion that goes with that,” Ms Glanville said. “They are heartbreaking. They’re

just people and their lives are turned upside down by something most of the time that isn’t their fault. “Every day it reminds you it could happen to anybody.” Accidents along Beach Rd are unfortunately a regular occurrence. “We see a lot of injuries for cyclists and motorcyclists because it’s a community that rides a lot.” Ms Glanville has tried to make lawyers “part of the treatment team” for road trauma victims. “If I help them through a difficult time then I’ve done my job well.”

Bullies pick on scooter user HASTINGS police are looking into incidences around the town of elderly users of mobility scooters being stood over and bullied by youths. Mornington Peninsula Shire mobility scooter ambassador Fran Henke went to the police after hearing from a friend who intervened last week when a woman was being bullied by eight youths in the Ritchie’s arcade. “I wanted advice on the kind of personal alarm that mobility scooter users might carry,” Mrs Henke said. “But, coincidentally, another person at the police station was making a related inquiry so I joined in. “The man had three pages listing similar events and said his wife was now too scared to go out on her scooter. He identified the group of youths responsible for the bullying as living on the eastern side of Hastings. “In the arcade, however, the youths were reportedly wearing a local school uniform. This was the terrified woman’s second time of being mobbed. “On the previous occasion she said the youths demanded she get off her scooter and give them a ride. When she said no one thrust his fist in her face threateningly.”

In another instance, a witness saw an elderly man buy cigarettes at Richie’s rebuilt cigarette counter: outside waiting for him was a mob which demanded the packet. “He just had to hand it over,” the witness said. Scooters users have been advised to carry a small, loud alarm to alert passers-by if they require assistance. Mrs Henke said a Hastings police officer said alarms were available online and she bought one for $13. She said she had “been assured that a taskforce is being planned to look into this problem”. “For those of us who can’t walk far, mobility scooters are a boon, getting us out into the community, into the fresh air, rather than being isolated,” Mrs Henke said. “It is appalling that elderly people can’t move around in their town in safety”. Mrs Henke suggests having an alarm within easy reach on the scooter; carrying a mobile phone (but not visibly); dialling 000 if sensing trouble; planning scooter trips in peopled areas, and don’t leave a purse or phone in an open basket where they might easily be grabbed.

A further $14.56m is being spent “shire wide” on capital works and priority projects.

Top Liberals to steer sub project STATE Liberal Party president Michael Kroger spoke at the Victorian Maritime Centre’s inaugural Governors Dinner on Wednesday 24 May at which he and two others were inducted into its governorship program. Mr Kroger, along with Liberal Party Eastern Multicultural branch president Gladys Liu and financial advisor Ian Heraud will help guide, mentor and protect the $15 million project which involves establishing a maritime museum at Hastings based around the submarine HMAS Otama (moored off Crib Point for the past 14 years) and former pilot vessel, MV Wyuna (initially destined for a birth at Docklands). Western Port Oberon Association public relations officer Annette Sanfilippo said the governors’ role was created to protect the financial and ethical interests of the project. The project includes building an interactive, entertaining and educational centre around the vessels to preserve and teach maritime history and create awareness among young people. It aims to become a major tourist destination in Western Port. Ms Sanfilippo said Oberon association president Max Bryant is working to restore and display the vessels for the community. Project patron Princess Anne commissioned HMAS Otama in 1978. It is said to be the last of the Oberon class submarines in existence. Guests toured the Hastings marina before the dinner amid a setting that reflected the history of the project and featured a 1.5-metre wooden replica

of the MV Wyuna donated to the museum. Mr Bryant and Ms Sanfilippo spoke about the not-for-profit project which aims to preserve maritime history and generate tourism around Western Port.

Dennis Gist was made an honorary ambassador of the association for his promotional work and other guests included project planner Paul McGuiness, Cr David Gill, John Methven of the Vietnam Veterans’

Long walk on side of the wild Continued from Page 1 There is no walk on the Friday, but on Saturday walkers will start at the Henry Wilson Rd wetlands, Rosebud, and continue to Gunnamatta. Australian Wildlife Protection Council president Craig Thomson said that in 2010, when the Peninsula Link Freeway was started, many bushland reserves were bisected and habitat corridors lost. He said Melbourne Water’s proposed rezoning of the Herman St reserve, Rosebud, presented the group with an opportunity to reinstate part of the lost wildlife corridor. He says the walk will draw attention to the link which is already reserved land and available for community use. Walkers will follow existing parks and walking tracks where necessary. Following on from the walk the protection

council will lodge an application under Melbourne Water’s Your Space or Place program to use the route to create the Great Mornington Peninsula Bush Walk and Habitat Corridor. The catalyst for the walk began in Rosebud earlier this year when Melbourne Water signalled its intentions to offload a 5.6-hectare site in Herman St used by residents for dog walking and exercise. If rezoned, the land would be worth about $400 a square metre – or about $22 million. Mr Thomson, who lives near the reserve, says it was well used by the public for exercise, dog walking and camping, but that there was only one consultation meeting with Melbourne Water (in Dromana) before the land was proposed for sale. He said Melbourne Water had underestimated the public response and dismissed the land as a “huge burden”.

Continued from Page 1 “Our planning scheme, which has taken shape following close consultation with our communities, reflects the peninsula’s village appeal, while also fostering a substantial and diverse local economy and areas of national and international conservation significance.” Cr Colomb said the shire had previously “worked well” with the state government “however, on this particular matter, we will seek a meeting with the planning minister to discuss this critical neighbourhood character element to ensure the Mornington Peninsula maintains its special values”. Cr Gill said the state had imposed the new planning regulations “without meaningful consultation”. “The changes seek to avoid excessive site coverage of buildings and sealed surfaces but there is a stinging trade-off that allows three storeys in a general residential zone (GRZ). “The GRZ applies to all of our residential areas including coastal villages. “Our protective overlays may still apply, limiting houses to two storeys, but in parts of Rosebud, Hastings and Mornington local character is not protected by overlays and three storeys could become the norm.”

Cr Gill said Mr Wynne had broadened statewide planning provisions for permit applications called Vicsmart that deny rights of appeal and councillors the right to intervene on ratepayers’ behalf. He said planning decision under Vicsmart would be made by council officers “while councillors, your elected representatives, have no say on these permit applications”. “The first you will know about a Vicsmart development, even next door, will be when work starts. There will not even be the normal permit pending yellow sign on the subject property,” Cr Gill said. “Vicsmart was meant to allow for quick, 10-day processing of minor permit applications like front fences, carports and small sheds but now will apply to much larger and costly proposals, this includes a range of developments in our precious agricultural and rural areas. “Council officers make all Vicsmart planning decisions. Councillors, your elected representatives, have no say on these permit applications. “We often complain about the fairness of the Victorian Civil and Administrative Tribunal (VCAT) that hears planning appeals but now an increasing number of planning matters will be beyond any appeal at all.”

The 2017 festival brings with it a host of talent and will showcase an exciting program mixing traditional and modern Jazz and Blues music performances. Come for a night, stay for the weekend, the 2017 Mornington Winter Jazz and Blues Festival has something for everyone. It’s already been five years since the Mornington Winter Jazz Festival began and the talent just gets better and better. This year the fifth Mornington Winter Jazz Festival showcases local and international artists across the peninsula. With stars like Kate Ceberano and James Morrison headlining, the 2017 jazz festival is the happening place to be. With a reputation for sheer brilliance as a jazz musician and all-round entertainer, James Morrison will be performing ‘A Celebration of Jazz’ at the Mornington Peninsula Regional Gallery on Saturday June 10.

Since bursting onto the international stage at 16, James debuted in the USA with a breathtaking concert at the Monterey Jazz Festival. After this were appearances in Europe’s major festivals including Montreaux, Pori, North Sea, Nice and Bern, playing with many of the legends of jazz – Dizzy Gillespie, Cab Calloway, Woody Shaw, Red Rodney, George Benson, Ray Charles, B.B.

Last but very not least ‘Fully Loaded’, a punchy and to the point track showcasing Ox’s versatile and powerful vocals. In it’s history Superheist has seen a slew of famous faces, but the current line up is your ultimate rock n roll fantasy league.

Enter Ezekiel Ox of Full Scale and Mammal fame, John Sankey of The Devil You Know and Devolevd complimented by returning bassist Si Durrant In:Extremis and Acid Wolf Keir Gotcher Insolence and Snot on second guitar and of course Superheist stalwart and founding member DW Norton.

THE MEANING OF EXISTENCE... AND OTHER SHORT STORIES

Achy Breaky Heart of Darkness By Stuart McCullough CAN you believe it? An entire quarter of a century has passed since one of modern civilization’s greatest cultural catastrophes descended from the heavens like a satanic death-clown to be unleashed on an unwitting world. On that day, the course of human history was forever altered and life as we knew would never be the same again. I’m not sure how the anniversary will be marked. Stamp? Commemorative coin? Or, somewhat ironically, a minute’s silence? Whatever mode we choose, it’s inevitable that we’ll all pause in the coming days to wonder how it was that we were ever seduced by whatever meager charms it possessed. I speak, of course, of the release of ‘Achy Breaky Heart’ by Billy Ray Cyrus. No doubt, you recall exactly where you were when you first heard it. For me, I was sitting on the couch one Saturday morning watching ‘Video Hits’. It was something we regularly did in our St Kilda share house. As the morning progressed, housemates would find their way to the living room, wrapped in a dressing gown and clutching a coffee cup as though it contained all life’s answers (which, in fairness, it probably did). There, we’d sit and watch music videos. Mostly it was a chance to communally lament at the poor state of popular music. When songs we liked broke into the top twenty, it always seemed a victory against the odds. From the safety of the big black couch, which was held together by a combination of duct tape and hu-

PAGE 44

man sweat, we would hurl abuse and inanimate objects whenever a song that displeased us came on. As it happened, songs we disliked were most of what Video Hits had to offer. However, even we were lulled into a stupefied silence when confronted by the horror of ‘Achy Breaky Heart’. In many respects, 1992 was pretty much like the opening sentence of ‘A

Southern Peninsula News 6 June 2017

Tale of Two Cities’ by Charles Dickens. It was the best of times, it was the worst of times, it was the age of grunge, it was the age of boy bands, it was the epoch of Seattle, it was the epoch of Right Said Fred, it was the season of Nirvana, it was the season of New Kids on the Block, we had everything before us, we had nothing before us. Most of all, we had Billy

Ray Cyrus gurning at us whenever we so much as glanced at a television. There is no way to describe ‘Achy Breaky Heart’ other than as a total assault on the senses. There’s the song itself, which consists of just two chords. Even punk bands that refuse to learn how to play their instruments on principle frequently manage more than two chords. The lyrics tell of a love gone tragically wrong and an invitation from the singer to take whatever steps his ex deems necessary to distance herself from what is obviously some kind of romantic disaster. It’s sage advice. But, as always, there’s a limit to this magnanimity, and while Billy Ray is happy for his former paramour to disown him to all and sundry, the one exception is his ‘achy breaky heart.’ The song, however, is about so much more than the music – which of itself is so wretched that it would tempt anyone to accuse their own ears of treachery whenever the hear it. There’s also the small matter of the video clip. There’s no nice way to put this – Billy Ray had a mullet so large that it could be seen from space. Traditionally, the mullet hair cut is the epitome of compromise; representing, as it does, ‘business at the front’ and ‘party at the back’. Given Billy Ray’s tonsorial state, the party must have been one where everyone stays up without sleeping for about a week and, at some point, all your furniture gets broken up and used for firewood. The thing was huge. The mullet, however, was not even the worst thing about the video. That honour belongs

to the dancing. Until that fateful morning on the lounge room couch, none of us had ever encountered ‘boot scooting’. For a generation raised on the notion that dancing represented freedom, (an ethos so memorably encapsulated by our hero, Kevin Bacon, in the movie ‘Footloose’) here was something that violated almost everything we believed in. The dancers (if, indeed, you could call them that) looked like they were marching together towards the exit before turning on their heels and marching right back again. It was as though they were struggling to make a decision in unison. Our comments were, inevitably, of the unkind variety. The song rocketed to number one on the Australian charts and went three times platinum. In spite of that success, I’m not sure it holds up too well. Later, Billy Ray was put out to stud and ended up siring Hannah Montana. For me, there’s other music from that era that I continue to love. My housemate Kevin had a copy of ‘Badmotorfinger’ by Soundgarden. You didn’t see Soundgarden on Video Hits. Instead, you had to stay up to catch Rage. Then, as now, I seldom stayed up so late. But I loved that album and I loved the sound of Chris Cornell’s incredible voice. For me, it was an antidote to all the boot scooting shenanigans that dominated the airwaves. To mark ‘Achy Breaky Heart’s’ quarter century, I’ll do much as I did twenty-five years ago and slip on ‘Badmotorfinger’ instead. stuart@stuartmccullough.com

Pines win a cracker PENINSULA LEAGUE

By Toe Punt SEAFORD and Pines turned on the game of the season in MPNFL Peninsula Division on Saturday. In a match that was expected to deliver so much, it didn’t disappoint, the massive crowd getting everything and more that it came for. The Tigers led by 10 points at halftime but a seven-goal third quarter to the visitors gave them the gap they were looking for to go on and win the match. The Pythons led by as much as 28 points in the final term before Seaford rallied with a couple of late goals. The final margin was 14 points, 17.10 (112) to 15.8 (98). The match had everything. High marking, strong contests, incredible individual displays and even the goal umpire became the focus of attention when a Matt McCormack goal off the crowd smashed the goalie right in the face, dropping him to the ground. To the crowd’s delight, after five minutes of lying on the deck, the goal umpire got himself to his feet and delivered a rigorous goal signal. Pines always appeared to be the more dangerous side when the ball went into attack but it took an hour for the visitors to find their rhythm. The big question for Seaford was how long were the structures going to stand up. In the first half, the Tigers were almost faultless, making life very difficult for the Pythons offence. However, with time, patience, expe-

rience and maturity, Pines was able to break them down. Whilst Lachy Marshall was the best player on the ground with his solid four quarter performance and three goals, it was the likes of Paul Scanlon and Luke Potts in the second half through the middle that helped to turn the game Pines’ way. Young Dylan Smilie is quickly making a name for himself as one of the best ruckmen in the comp and his tap work to advantage on Saturday was a significant reason as to why the Pythons took control of the match. Seaford’s Brayden Irving carved up the opposition in the first half but a master stroke by Pines’ coach Pat Swayne to swing Guy Hendry onto him on the wing was another key reason they took control. There were great one-on-one battles everywhere, which Pines were able to win by game’s end. Corey Ash had the job on the dangerous Damien Rayson and had the better of him, Rourke Fischer did a wonderful job on Aaron Edwards but the master still managed to boot six goals. Ben Howlett had the job on Nick Boswell but the best running defender in the whole of the MPNFL was able to break the shackles often enough to cause problems and finish with a couple of goals. Brad Doyle did everything to unsettle Tim Bongetti but ‘Bongo’ stood up at key moments in the game to finish with three goals. Whilst Seaford coach Ben Murphy would have been disappointed with the

result, there was more than enough to take away and be positive about. Murphy’s structures stood-up for the most part – the challenge now is for his players to trust and commit to it for longer. Kyle Matthews will make a big difference to the team when he comes back in. They missed his midfield rotation. Nick Shannon looks like he needs a spell to get his knee right. Whilst Rourke Fischer was good on Edwards, they missed his drive and bullocking higher up the ground. Edwards still kicked six goals. Would they do it a second time? No-one looked like they could go with Brayden Irving deep in the forward line for Seaford. It would have been interesting to see him one out in the square. Tommy Shaw was superb for the Tigers and has regained his brilliance after a couple of years away, while Jono Haidon is a real player with a big future. Make no mistake, despite Seaford going down, they have a major role to play in the finals. Pines are genuine flag contenders this season. Pace has always been an issue but that has been sorted. Depth is no longer a problem either with its reserves going well. They are in good shape at the pit. Described by a spectator as one of the worst games of local footy he had seen in two years, Mornington picked up a valuable four points against Langwarrin.

The Doggies have struggled to get a win this season despite playing pretty good footy. On Saturday they led from start to finish to win 12.23 (95) to 4.8 (32). Frankston YCW had the majority of its VFL contingent available, including Anthony Barry, and were able to get the job done over Chelsea 15.15 (105) to 7.7 (49). The Stonecats booted nine goals to three in the second half, Michael Debenham back and booting three goals. Bonbeach continued to impress and knock over the second grand final team

of 2016, smacking Mt Eliza 12.8 (80) to 7.11 (53). Strong second and third quarters for Bonbeach made the difference, booting seven goals to three in that period with Trent Dennis-Lane booting three and Jackson Sole winning a heap of footy. Edithvale-Aspendale did what it needed to do against Karingal but inaccuracy cost them early. The Eagles trailed at halftime despite having 16 scoring (2.14) shots to seven but went on to win 12.22 (94) to 6.7 (43).

Sharks finish off Hillmen title challenge NEPEAN LEAGUE

By Toe Punt SORRENTO flexed its muscles again on Saturday and in doing so highlighted once again that Red Hill is not capable of winning the 2017 Nepean Division premiership. In another really important game for the Hillmen, they simply weren’t able to match the power of the Sharks and struggled to get the ball forward of centre to kick goals. The Hillmen have now lost to Frankston, Hastings and now Sorrento, all at home. On Saturday it lost 11.18 (84) to 6.8 (44). The Red Hill defence held up OK but when the opposition has a forward line consisting of Leigh Poholke, Chris Dawes and Nick Corp, it’s hard to contain. Red Hill coach Tony Blackford said after the game that “it’s achievable to hold a couple but it’s near impossible to hold them all”. Blackford was right. Poholke was held to one goal and Corp didn’t bother the scorers, however, Chris Dawes booted five. Luke Tapscott was the best player on the park and completely dominated through the middle in the absence of Red Hill’s Ben Poole and Chris Irving. Poole and Irving are Red Hill’s best inside midfielders and them not being there on Saturday hurt them. Poole has finally succumbed to a bad knee and has decided that he

can’t push his body through it any more. He retired before the game. Irving will be back next week. Sorrento had some good news of their own through the week with the signature of Cayden Beetham, who will return as a one-point player. Andrew Lovett was also at the ground on Saturday watching and has been sighted at training. Dromana made it three wins on the trot and their tails are up after beating Somerville 14.9 (93) to 10.17 (77). Somerville once again had the better of the opposition in the first half but could only manage 4.11 to 7.5 in the first hour. Last week they had three more scoring shots that Sorrento at halftime but trailed. Sam Fowler makes a significant difference to the Tigers and his three goals were significant. Timmy McGennis played his best game of the season for the Eagles while Jake Neuchew played his first game and shone. Rye made it back-to-back wins too against Crib Point but were made to work for it. The Magpies led at the long break but Rye booted seven goals to three after the break to win 11.12 (78) to 8.8 (56). Rye has five U19s in the side currently and all of them are getting better every week. Jai Lloyd was also a very handy addition, back from Sandringham for the remainder of the season. Hastings got back on the winner’s list against an undermanned

Pearcedale. According to coach Leigh Stewart, the Dales are minus 13 of their best players at the minute through injury. Shaun Foster booted five for the Blues with David Hirst and Luke Clark kicking three each in the 17.12 (114) to 8.10 (58) victory. Rosebud kicked atrociously again on Saturday but still managed a 15.28 (118) to 4.4 (28) win against Tyabb. Keegan Downie nailed four and Matt Baker three for the Buds. Frankston Bombers took three quarters to find something and beat Devon Meadows. The Bombers trailed all afternoon, including by 18 points at three-quarter time. However, a five goal to one point final quarter saw the Bombers win 9.11 (65) to 7.10 (52). Defenders Ryan Marks-Logan, Jarryd Amalfi and Corey Buchan were significant in the Bombers’ win.

Kilner brothers on target, Langy still unbeaten SOCCER

By Craig MacKenzie BAXTER’S commanding 3-0 home win over Monash Uni on Saturday has catapulted it into the State 4 South promotion race. Baxter gaffer Roy Kilner made three changes to the team which was unlucky against Harrisfield Hurricanes the previous week with Matthew Owens replacing the suspended Edin Ali, captain Frank Ntim replacing Daniel Sharratt and Alan Lipsett dropped to the bench for Daniel Disseldorp. It didn’t take long for Baxter to strike and in the 11th minute, a superb Travis Ernsdoerfer pass found Liam Kilner whose scintillating finish made it 1-0. Monash responded but found Baxter’s defence impenetrable. In the 61st minute, Baxter extended its lead when Ernsdoerfer’s far post corner was headed home in style by Owen Kilner. It was a first for the Kilner family with both brothers scoring for the same team in the same match. And Baxter’s jubilation continued courtesy of Mark Pagliarulo who won a penalty in the 70th minute and converted from the spot. Langwarrin remains the only unbeaten team in State 1 South-East after a 3-2 away win over Clifton Hill last weekend. Kieron Kenny made his league debut linking with fellow English import George Whiteoak at the heart of the Langy defence with John Guthrie at right back and Andy McIntyre at left back. Kenny and Whiteoak have played over 100 games together during their time at Macclesfield Town and Congleton Town. Clifton Hill scored first through Michael Catalano in the 15th minute but big Mat “Yaya” Luak levelled 12 minutes later after a fine build-up by controlling the ball on his chest just inside the box then hammering a fierce shot past Clifton Hill keeper Chris Davis. Usual suspect Liam Baxter got onto the scoresheet in the 37th minute following an Aaran Currie shot and Langy led 2-1 at the break. In the second half Alex Metcalfe beat two opponents then slipped the ball to Connor Belger whose shot from 15 metres gave Langy a twogoal cushion. Clifton Hill captain Daniel Thomas made it 3-2 in the 85th minute but Langy was able to hang on to all three points. Mornington won 2-1 away to Malvern City on Saturday and could be

on the verge of making a number of signings this week. Among the prospective newcomers are a current NPL player, a Scot currently playing in New Zealand and another UK import. Mornington head coach Adam Jamieson is adamant that not all is yet lost in the race for the State 1 SouthEast title despite being nine points behind Langwarrin. “If we had held onto our leads in previous weeks we’d be one point behind Langwarrin,” said Jamieson. “I think we are the form side of the competition and we just need that bit of luck that you need to win championships. “We are definitely in the top two and I think it is between us and Langwarrin so it will come down to whether Langwarrin can hold on or whether we can chase them down.” Mornington dominated the first half against Malvern City and should have had more to show at half-time than a Ryan Paczkowski goal after great work by Chris Reid. With 10 minutes to go Malvern levelled through former Mornington winger Brad Blumenthal but some Craig Smart magic and a fine finish by Simon Mur in the 85th minute settled the issue. Make no mistake about it, Heatherton United is an ordinary side but on Saturday at Monterey Reserve, it

was made to look like championship material against an insipid Frankston Pines who are staring down the barrel of relegation in State 2 South-East. Heatherton thumped the home team 5-1 after Pines rolled out the welcome mat for strikers Ali Sanad and Meldin Klehic with a shambolic defensive display that bordered on farce. Michael Miller made his debut for Pines after switching from Westgate but the home side adopted a zonal defensive approach that allowed Sanad and Klehic to run riot. Jack Wrobel’s low, firm strike in the 6th minute was only partially stopped by Yehya Dimassi in the Heatherton goal before crossing the line for the opener but by the time the game clock had ticked over to the 29-minute mark Pines were 3-1 down and all but out. Sanad was offside in the 19th minute when he broke down the left but the assistant referee thought otherwise allowing the Heatherton striker to draw out Pines keeper Brian Karaga before squaring to Jusuf Kusdian to tap into the gaping goal for the equaliser. In the 28th minute, Klehic took everyone by surprise with a longrange strike that sailed over Karaga and into the far corner of goal to make it 2-1 and a minute later Sanad’s mazy run into the Pines area ended with a clinical finish past the helpless Karaga to make it 3-1.

Southern Peninsula News 6 June 2017

This signalled a change in approach with Miller marking Sanad but by then the damage had been done. Pines failed to make any inroads into the Heatherton defence in the second half and lost the midfield battle hands down. Cedric Permal is a class act but goodness knows what the Mauritian international is thinking when he sees midfielders who won’t tackle or track back properly. To make matters worse Heatherton’s fourth goal in the 73rd minute was embarrassing as Karaga passed the ball to the feet of Klehic who dribbled past the last defender then rounded the red-faced keeper and stroked the ball into the empty goal. Pines’ afternoon was summed up in the 83rd minute when Wrobel robbed Dimassi who recovered and blocked Wrobel from just a few metres out. Mirza Pedic made it 5-1 in the 89th minute and a few minutes later referee Yuhong Li did Pines a favour by blowing his whistle for the final time. Pines’ first team needs strengthening and it needs it now if it is to drag itself clear of the relegation battle. The same can be said for neighbouring Seaford United which is anchored to the foot of the State 2 South-East table with Pines just three points above it. Harry McCartney reports that Seaford blew a 2-0 lead in its 4-2 away loss to Berwick City on Saturday. A Paul McGuire penalty and an opportunist goal from Tom Natoli had Seaford in cruise control after 32 minutes but in the 40th minute a mixup in defence allowed Orlando Meijas to round Seaford keeper Anthony Madaferri and make it 2-1. Three minutes later Meijas headed over Madaferri for the equaliser. Josh Tsung denied David Di Iorio with a goalline clearance in the 63rd minute but substitute Ruben Ichim scored in the 77th and 92nd minutes to confirm the home team’s secondhalf dominance. Peninsula Strikers joined the list of struggling locals when it went down 4-1 away to North Caulfield on Sunday and is now third bottom on the State 2 South-East ladder. The home side led 3-0 at the interval with goals from Aaron Vaserman (6th minute), Daniel Sacks (26th) and Darby Dexter (47th). Sacks put the nail in the coffin in the 53rd minute and Trevor Johnston (63rd) provided Strikers’ reply. Skye United turned in its worst display of the season going down 1-0 at home to Collingwood City in their State 3 South-East encounter on Saturday.

Skye’s wounds were self-inflicted as Batu Cimen rose unchallenged in the 88th minute to get on the end of a set piece and head the winner. Skye has signed left-back Sajnesh Sugrim from Strikers. Sugrim is a former Morwell Pegasus player. Rosebud Heart and Harrisfield Hurricanes had to settle for a scoreless draw in Saturday’s State 4 South clash at Truemans Road Recreation Reserve. It was the first time that Heart had failed to score under Scott Morrison but the home team dominated the first half and should have made more of its chances. An errant back pass in the 20th minute sent ace scorer Dave Greening on his way but uncharacteristically Greening shot straight at Harrisfield keeper Filip Konikowski. In the 30th minute, a poor clearance fell to Chris Sibson and he blasted the ball towards the bottom corner but Konikowski got down well to parry. Greening hammered home the rebound only to be ruled offside. There were few chances created in the second half until the final 10 minutes. Greening turned a defender on the left of the box but his shot flew across the face of goal then two great saves from Sean Skelly, one from substitute Ahmet Ogut who was clean through, kept the visitors at bay. Somerville Eagles drew 2-2 at home to high-flying Rowville Eagles on Saturday in their State 5 South fixture and the next day the home team’s fans were still venting their spleen over the display of referee Ersin Kilic. Liam Morgan pounced on a defensive error by Rowville in the 8th minute and an Alex Colville volley in the 20th minute made it 2-0.

SOUTHERN PENINSULA scoreboard

AFL South East flexes its muscles By Toe Punt AFL South East has provided only two options in its recently released senior football competition review. The paper, released at 2.30 last Friday afternoon (2 June), invited all “industry stakeholders” (including member clubs, neighboring leagues, local councils and more) to consider and make comment by early July. The options provided were: n A full divisional structure initially comprising three divisions with promotion/relegation between each. n A partial divisional structure also comprising three divisions, with a top division then two divisions below based on geography. AFL SE General Manager John Anderson said the options “not only address the concerns raised by the majority of clubs but they also strike a balance with the competing issues specific to some clubs.” Anderson also stated in the media release that he was very pleased with the way the individual club consulta-

tions were conducted. “Clubs were open, honest and respectful during the process. The discussion paper has been prepared to incorporate much of the feedback received and recorded during the consultation phase,” Anderson said. However, key figures with clubs in Nepean and Peninsula Division believe the comments made by Anderson were nothing more than “PR Spin and misguided”. Nepean and Peninsula clubs genuinely believe that AFL SE has totally disregarded their input and presented only options that suits themselves. Rosebud Secretary Anthony Matthews, who has spoken on behalf of Nepean and Peninsula Clubs, said the recommendations were “poorly considered and being driven by a desire to correct concerns raised with the South East Football Netball League (SENFL) at the expense of Nepean and Peninsula clubs. “If the AFL SE think they have any chance of railroading clubs into accepting either of these options they

have another thing coming. Clubs have demonstrated previously what they are prepared to do when their league doesn’t listen, doesn’t engage in meaningful consultation and does not act in the best interests of the clubs it is charged with administering,” Matthews said. Seaford coach Ben Murphy said on the RPP Footy Show on Saturday morning that he believed Peninsula clubs had ‘zero interest’ in having anything to do with the SENFL. “I haven’t spoken to one person at another club in Peninsula that is remotely interested in having a three-tier structure involving SENFL Clubs,” Murphy said. Chelsea coach Brett Dunne said on RPP Footy Show that he supported promotion-relegation but only between Nepean and Peninsula clubs. RPP Footy Show regulars in Red Hill coach Tony Blackford has always been a supporter of promotion-relegation between Nepean and Peninsula and Rye’s Scott Beel is also supportive of promotion-relegation.

To give the discussion some context, it should be remembered also that three years ago the Casey League broke away from the MPNFL, reformed as SENFL and opted to have nothing to do with Peninsula and Nepean Division clubs. It should also be remembered that divisional football was introduced more than 20 years ago when the then MPNFL saved the SENFL Clubs and took them under their structure. Divisional football at that time almost destroyed many clubs across the whole region. The Nepean clubs had an opportunity two years ago to support promotion-relegation with Peninsula Division clubs but dug in their heels and opted to ‘leave things alone’. Promotion-relegation between the divisions is not even an option for them right now. Perhaps now Nepean Clubs, especially Dromana, Rosebud, Rye and Sorrento, which led the charge to block it previously, will reconsider their stance – it seems they have lit-

tle choice and provides them the only alternative to the AFL SE recommendations. Not one club spoken to in Nepean and Peninsula on Friday and over the weekend supports the AFL SE recommendations. It is also believed that SENFL Clubs are not interested in Divisional football and some will consider a move to Eastern FL if AFL SE pushes it. Chelsea, Bonbeach and EdithvaleAspendale would even consider a move to Southern FL. Chelsea had discussions with Southern two years ago. Feedback must be lodged with the review panel by Monday 3 July. Stakeholders can do so by going to the AFL South East website. The review panel will consider stakeholder feedback on each of the options and then provide a final report to the commission for its approval, scheduled for late July.

Mount Eliza Tennis Club calls for extension

Bigger the better: Mount Eliza Tennis Club juniors enjoy a day at the club. Picture: Supplied

By Ben Triandafillou THE Mount Eliza Tennis Club began a petition on 12 May to push for an extension to their club with some new tennis courts to cater for their growing member base. Often overflowing, the Mount Eliza Tennis Club has to hire almost 10 tennis courts from the Frankston Tennis Club because of the lack of courts at the club. With coaching taking up the majority of the eight tennis courts at Mount Eliza, members are often struggling to get a court to play on and Saturday junior competition is regularly running out of time, says Mount Eliza Tennis Club coach Brad Grose. In response to the rising issues, the Mount Eliza Tennis Club began the petition to gain support from the community and create awareness for the need of some more courts. Now with a growing list of 326 signatures, the Mount Eliza Tennis Club is asking locals who support the development to join the petition and add to the signature list.

Motoring Next-gen Commodore has launched… well, almost THE next-generation Commodore is firmly on the horizon and early signs from Europe point to a whole new world of luxury, refinement and technology, all with that signature Holden driving feel thanks to ongoing local development. Developed hand-in-hand with the next-generation Commodore, the all-new Opel Insignia Grand Sport recently wowed European media following its debut global drive with particular praise reserved for its comfortable ride, strong acceleration and corner-carving abilities…. But the European launch is just the start for Holden customers. Holden’s engineers are taking the best from Europe and giving it that special Aussie touch with local tuning and development continuing. Developed predominantly for Australia, the V6 AWD and 2.0-litre turbo, both with nine-speed automatic transmission, continue to pound out the development kilometres under the watchful eyes of Holden’s expert engineers. If there’s one thing Holden engineers do best, it’s make cars ‘great to drive’. “At the start of every vehicle program our objective is to make the car great to drive, whether it’s a small car like Astra or a large sedan like the new Commodore” said Holden’s Executive Director of Engineering, Brett Vivian . “We’ve been involved with the new Commodore’s development from the very beginning and have been working to tune to the specific tastes

of Aussie buyers who like responsive steering and sporty suspension, yet composed ride quality when cruising. These are the hallmarks of Commodore and we are going to deliver again with the next-gen car. “The European press is just the start and our local development continues at pace. We recently put the Australian tuned V6 all-wheel-drive and 2.0-litre turbo Commodores to test on Victoria’s challenging alpine roads and both performed brilliantly. “These cars really build on the

strong ‘driver’s car’ feel Commodore is renowned for and when you add its peerless levels of refinement and impressive new technology, it’s clear we have a new Commodore buyers can look forward to driving.” Though Holden buyers can look to European drive reports for the general look and feel of the car, the new Commodore’s performance credentials remain largely under wraps. That’s because two of Holden’s three powertrain combinations – frontwheel-drive (FWD) 2.0-litre turbo

and V6 all-wheel-drive (AWD), both with nine-speed automatic transmission – are locally tuned and unique to Australia. While Holden’s flagship V6 AWD leads the performance charge, it’s the FWD 2.0-litre turbo that really underlines Commodores new efficient performance package, boasting targeted 0-100kph times in-line with direct premium brand competitors* with competitive fuel economy figures to boot. Due to launch early in 2018, Hold-

en’s engineers continue to perfect the hotly anticipated evolution of one of Australia’s favourite cars. Eating up the kilometres at the Lang Lang proving ground and surrounding public roads, this is where Holden engineers are in their element, and with over 30 years of Commodore learnings and in learnings from other programs including the recently released Colorado and upcoming Astra sedan, you can be sure the best is yet to come.
