Winning hand: Rosebud Retirement Village resident Ken Harris has fun playing the game “Trouble” with Macey, Isabella and Tiahna. Picture: Yanni

Class has a mix of ages SCHOOL is in for “pupils” of all ages at Rosebud Retirement Village. The residents have joined Rosebud Primary School Grade 4 pupils for a reading program which manager Debra Riedel said was “more than just reading”. “The program has brought a sense of positivity into the lives of village residents and pupils benefit with learning the stories of the older generation,” she said. “Friendships have developed between the children and residents; it has brought knowledge and enthusiasm to each group’s lives.”

Asbestos work alarms neighbours FEATHERS were flying in Red Hill last week when neighbours discovered asbestos sheeting was being removed from a disused chicken shed near their properties. Monique Soames said she and her neighbours were outraged at not being warned by Mornington Peninsula Shire Council, WorkSafe, or the EPA about the potentially hazardous works on Arthurs Seat Road and had “only come across it by pure chance”. The contractor carrying out the work

says it is legal and being done in accordance with his licences and permits. WorkSafe confirmed it had been notified by the contractor but said work had been halted after complaints by nearby property owners. An inspection of the site would be made this week. Ms Soames said she had made repeated calls to the agencies to try to put a stop to the works on the 100-metre-long shed when she saw asbestos sheets lying alongside the former battery-hen shed and bagged ready to be

Lawyers & Advisers

removed. Her neighbours had made similar calls and were dismayed no one was prepared to “take ownership”. “It is only common sense that we should all have been told,” Ms Soames said. “The EPA and WorkSafe are investigating the demolition as it backs onto many properties and no one was aware it was happening at all. “The Red Hill market is on this weekend and people are using the ten-

nis courts which are only metres from [the] asbestos. “l am sure you will understand the community’s concerns due to a lack of information, pre-warning and surprise.” Licensed asbestos removalist David Hender said he was “lawfully engaged to perform asbestos removal/demolition works at the property and [had been] engaged by the property owner”. He said he became aware of “public concern in relation to works that are

being performed on private property in relation to the removal of dilapidated chicken sheds” and provided copies of relevant licenses and EPA permits to carry out the works. “We are a licensed demolisher and licensed B class asbestos removalist,” he said. “The works on this property fall under the B class removalist category. “Demolishing chicken sheds is not illegal [and] nor is asbestos removal.” Continued Page 8

Helping close peninsula’s housing gap MORNINGTON Peninsula Shire’s representative on the Triple A Housing Committee Cr Simon Brooks said that of the 2000 requests for homelessness services on the peninsula last year 895 were classed as “high priority”. Cr Brooks sourced the statistics from the June Victorian Housing Register, the centralised social housing waiting list for the Bayside/ Peninsula region. “The council has an important role to play in facilitating social housing and will actively work to develop strategies to address gaps in the housing market,” he said. The information is relevant as the council reviews its three housing policies, with the community invited to provide feedback on “how [the shire] can do more to close the housing gap”. The shire’s Draft Triple A Housing Plan, Draft Social and Affordable Housing Policy, 2018 and Draft Rooming House Policy, 2018, are on public exhibition until Friday 14 December. The mayor Cr Bryan Payne said the aim was to develop strategies to address gaps in the housing market. “The policies will also assist council to advocate for and facilitate sustainable housing options for the community,” he said. “They would address issues of homelessness and housing stress having regard to related matters of people’s health, social isolation, poverty, food insecurity and sense of community security. “We want community feedback to update these housing policies to ensure they continue to meet the needs of our community.” About 200 people attended Mornington Peninsula Shire’s Fair Deal Housing and Wellbeing Expo held at Rosebud Memorial Hall during Anti-Poverty Week and Gambling Harm Awareness Week recently. The expo highlighted worsening housing and homelessness issues on the peninsula in the lead up to the state and federal elections. Shire staff said the expo aimed to empower people to take action on housing issues and to offer wellbeing resources and referrals to those who are homeless or struggling to afford the costs of housing. The expo was seen as a worthwhile way of establishing new pathways to available services in a non-threatening environment for those who might otherwise lack knowledge of them or be reluctant to access them. About 30 organisations offering housing or other services attended to explain the services that are available, as well as shire officers. Other organisations, including Back in Black BBQ, CWA,

Rally to push for services ANTI-HOMELESSNESS campaigner Wayne Iremonger said he was hoping to stage a rally in Mornington later this month to push for better homelessness services on the peninsula. Mr Iremonger is one of up to 100 residents affected by the impending closure of the Capel Caravan Park in Eastbourne Road, which is expected to be redeveloped for retirement units (See Park residents worry over futures The News 12/6/2018). “Visualize the current VicRoads advertisement: Zero people killed on our roads, and ask yourself: ‘What is acceptable?’” he said. “Similarly, what is an acceptable figure for homelessness on the peninsula?” Mr Iremonger said he had asked a colleague who was organising a [homelessness] rally in the city to postpone it until after the state elections and to hold it outside the shire’s Queen Street, Mornington, offices. It would be attended by the homeless as well as assistance groups, churches, not-for-profits, and emergency food services outlets. The ABC had also been invited. “The intention is to highlight to state and local government that we do have a problem which needs urgent attention and which should be addressed as soon as humanly possible,” Mr Iremonger said. “Land for affordable housing must be released for the homeless and both local and state governments and agencies have a responsibility to make this happen. “Let’s work together to find and adopt a workable solution.” Mr Iremonger said affordable one-and-two-storey units approved by the state government were feasible options on land which had yet to be allocated.

Rosebud and District Men’s Shed and musicians from Mornington Secondary College, supported the event. The first submissions to the council’s Draft Triple A Housing Plan were lodged at the expo. See the plan on the shire’s website or take part in a workshop, 10.30am-12.30pm, Monday 26 November, at The Studio @PCT, 91 Wilsons Road, Mornington. Community consultation closes 5pm, Friday 14 December, or visit mornpen.vic. Survey forms in hard copy are at the shire’s Rosebud, Mornington, Hastings and Somerville offices, or at other times by appointment at the shire office, 21 Marine Parade, Hastings.

Super store could ‘destroy’ gateway Stephen Taylor A HUGE multi-national supermarket outside the existing commercial zone in Mornington would “destroy the prominent entry gateway to [Mornington]”. The warning comes from Mornington Peninsula Shire Council as it ramps up its criticism of the proposed Kaufland super store on the corner of Nepean Highway and Oakbank Road. The council has been sidelined by Planning Minister Richard Wynne who has appointed an advisory committee to assess the planning application. The mayor Cr Bryan Payne said hav-

ing the proposed store on the edge of green wedge-zoned land would lead to “vacant shops down Main Street”. He said peninsula residents might eventually be given just 20 days to respond to the proposed 4000 square metre giant and its large car parking. The shire is being backed up by Mornington MP David Morris who said he had “no problem with any retailer coming to Mornington, but the community expects them to set up for business in one of the existing retail areas, and to comply with the same rules as our existing traders”. “Unfortunately, that’s not the case with this proposal,” he said. “Kaufland are seeking to rezone

cheaper industrial land on the edge of Mornington, away from the existing retail centres. “While the land can be used for shops, the existing rules impose a maximum size of 1800 square metres. Press reports indicate the proposed store will be at least 17,000 square metres – almost 10 times the permitted size.” Planning Minister Richard Wynne has removed the Kaufland bid from the normal local planning processes and is having it assessed by an appointed board: the Kaufland Stores in Victoria Advisory Committee, which is under his direction. Kaufland spokesperson Didem Bren-

nan said the government’s process was “legitimate, transparent and accountable and encourages public engagement”. He said the store would not be a “mega mall or a massive liquor outlet” and that the panel process was “not about mass rezoning of industrial land”. “Our history shows we can co-exist with smaller retailers,” he said. The shire has taken out full page advertisements in The News to “keep [residents] informed of the matters relating to the ... supermarket to be assessed against the existing local planning scheme”. Major concerns are the intrusion into

the “setback of 90 metres and landscaping to reflect the environmental entry” with plans to turn the area into a 430-vehicle car park with less than 20 metres of landscaping. A 20-metre-high and 60-metre-long advertising sign on top of the building would “permanently dominate the “green” gateway skyline of the entry into Mornington”. The council believes Kaufland would cause major traffic congestion on Oakbank Road and create a “rat run” through nearby streets, leading to more congestion on Bungower Road. Cr Payne said the government had not said when it would put the application on show. Continued Page 11

Labor names candidates WHILE the Liberal Party contenders for the three state electorates that make up the Mornington Peninsula are making promises on a weekly (if not daily) basis, the Labor Party has been slow to name its candidates. Faced with an uphill battle to win any one of the seats, Labor last week listed Ryan White as standing for Mornington, Simon Meyer, Hastings and Chris Brayne, Nepean. Mr Brayne announced his own candidature last month (“Labor’s late start in Nepean”, The News 1/10/18).

He is opposing Liberal Russell Joseph, who is trying to win the seat of his former boss, Martin Dixon, who has announced his retirement. Mr Joseph, Mr Dixon’s electorate officer since 2014, was one of five candidates who sought preselection for the seat held by the Liberals with a safe 16 per cent margin on a two party preferred basis. In Mornington, Labor’s Ryan White will try to defeat Liberal David Morris, who also has a seemingly safe hold on the seat with a 26 per cent two

party preferred basis. Hastings, held by Liberal Neale Burgess (16 per cent), is being contested for Labor by Simon Meyer. ALP Victoria did not respond by deadline when asked by The News for details of its three peninsula candidates. The party’s state website states: “Victorian Labor is fighting hard to end the Turnbull Morrison Liberal government and the damage it has caused in Victoria.” Keith Platt

Mental health offer

“Programs could include social events for young people or regular services in communities without a permanent headspace location.” All three candidates have also been promising, if re-elected and their party gains government, to improve sports grounds within their respective electorates. “Currently only serviced by portable buildings, the Emil Madsen soccer and netball facility in Mt Eliza is desperately in need of a fit-for-purpose sporting pavilion, access roads and paths to cater for the local sporting clubs,” Mr Morris said on Friday. “The $5.3 million project could fund an appropriate home base for clubs and provide female friendly facilities. “Only a Liberal government will provide our community sports clubs with the backing they need to get back in control and build the facilities they need to support local population growth.” Mr Morris said the centrepiece of “this record investment in suburban

and country sports” was a $89 million “grassroots sport fund”. Meanwhile, Mr Burgess teamed up with his federal counterpart, Dunkley MP Chris Crewther, in announcing a $6 million “commitment” to the “re-development” of Lloyd Park, Langwarrin. A joint news release stated “the project will see Lloyd Park re-developed for the benefit of local community groups including the Langwarrin football, netball, cricket and tennis clubs as well as the Langwarrin scouts”. “The funding boost will see the federal Liberal government provide $3 million, with an elected state Liberal government to match this contribution.” Lloyd park is within the Frankston municipality and Frankston Council has not made any commitment to the plan outlined by the politicians. Mr Crewther did not say if the federal government’s commitment was dependent on the LNP being reelected next year.

THE state Opposition says it will pay $1.4 million over four years for headspace to provide outreach services to 12 to 25 year olds in regional Victoria and Melbourne, including the Mornington Peninsula. “Young people on the peninsula will be able to access mental health support easier and closer to home under an elected Liberal Nationals government,” Hastings MP Neale Burgess said. The state election is on Saturday 24 November. Russell Joseph, Mr Burgess’s Liberal colleague who is standing for the seat of Nepean, said he had “been a strong supporter of the headspace model and the establishment of a satellite/outreach service in Rosebud from the Frankston centre”. Mr Burgess said the peninsula needed extra support “as it is critical that youth in our local community have access to more social events that keep them occupied, focused and engaged”.

A WATERLOGGED kangaroo rescued by two policemen in rough seas off Safety Beach last Saturday week was happily “hopping around” two days later at a cosy refuge, a carer said. Animalia wildlife rescue group president Michelle Thomas said she collected the distressed male roo from the Rosebud police station lock up later that evening, Saturday 27 October, and took him to a specialised kangaroo shelter for some much-needed TLC. The roo’s bayside rescue, by Rosebud police Sergeant Chris Russo and Senior Sergeant Kirby Tonkin, who stripped off and waded into the waves, made TV news bulletins on Saturday night. Ms Thomas said the roo may have been “spooked” by young dirt bike riders and, in panic, hopped all the way down Boundary Road, Dromana, to Marine Drive. It fled all the way

to Safety Beach followed by cars which Ms Thomas said “only made matters worse”. “We had callers left, right and centre saying they saw it hopping all the way to Safety Beach,” she said, with the hard bitumen wearing his big toe nails right down. “All the noise and the people freaks them out. When they are frightened or being chased they often hop into the water. It can be their only option. They can swim quite well but not when it is rough like it was on Saturday.” Brought to shore by the policemen, the roo was taken back to Rosebud police station in the divvy van and given antibiotics to combat the effects of taking water into his lungs. “He will need peace and quiet and will be released in a few days.” Stephen Taylor

Talk about art collectors HERITAGE buildings and gardens expert Richard Heathcote will talk about Carrick Hill, South Australia, at the next Australian Decorative and Fine Arts Society, Mornington Peninsula, meeting this Friday (9 November). Mr Heathcote is director of benefaction at Carrick Hill House and Garden (pictured) in Adelaide. From the late 1930s, Carrick Hill was the home of Edward and Ursula Hayward. The foothills mansion, with its glorious garden, was alive with social gatherings at which guests from all walks of life gathered and were entertained. The fine collection of art at Carrick Hill has provided rich material for Mr Heathcote to create exhibitions and publications, using his particular talent of making art accessible to everyone. In his lecture, Mr Heathcote will describe Haywards’ journey as collectors of fine art and furnishings. Previously, Mr Heathcote managed Rippon Lea Estate, the flagship property of the National Trust in Melbourne. He presented The New

Eden, a six part series for ABC Television, which traced the evolution of the Australian garden, and he has also published on heritage buildings and gardens. As a graduate of the Attingham Summer School for the Study of the English Country House, Mr Heathcote has an extensive knowledge of architecture, collections and social history. The Churchill Fellow visited Canada and Britain looking at interpretations of heritage sites. He also joined the prestigious Royal Collections Studies Group that is allowed to inspect the Queen’s collection at Windsor Castle and other palaces. ADFAS lectures are held at the Peninsula Community Theatre, Wilsons Road, Mornington, at 5.30pm on Friday evenings. The Illustrated hour-long lectures are followed by light refreshments and an opportunity to meet the lecturer and fellow members.

In the dark: Red Hill resident Monique Soames and her neighbours are upset at not knowing about the asbestos-removal works. Picture: Yanni

WorkSafe called to asbestos job Continued from Page 1 Neighbours are not required to be notified unless their homes are within 10 metres of the demolition works. Mr Hender said all correspondence relating to the work was being forwarded to his solicitor. The News is not suggesting Mr Hender is doing anything wrong and is acting in accordance with his licences and permits. WorkSafe’s Jeremy Venosta said the authority was investigating the job, which had been put on hold last week. The EPA’s Troy Kraska said that, as the report concerned removal of asbestos at a worksite, his department had referred

it to WorkSafe and Mornington Peninsula Shire Council for investigation. A shire officer was onsite last week speaking with Ms Soames. He confirmed the works were being carried out by licensed asbestos removalists. “This is therefore a WorkSafe matter and council has no legislative power to intervene in the matter,” he said. “The contractor has done his required notification to WorkSafe and we have also passed Ms Soames detailed accounts of the onsite practices to WorkSafe, urging them to investigate. This is as much as we can do in this circumstance.” It is understood a building permit

was not required for the removal of the asbestos – only for demolition of the shed structure. Mr Venosta said WorkSafe was planning to revisit the site this week. Red Hill Ward councillor David Gill said he could “understand why the neighbours were fearful”. “They didn’t know [the contractor] had permits and licences and we all know how dangerous asbestos is,” he said. “It was a windy day and it is asbestos.” Cr Gill said the council needed to play a role in informing neighbours in similar instances. “A lack of notification breeds suspicion and fear,”

MP walks and talks for a good cause Keith Platt FLINDERS MP Greg Hunt took the first steps on a planned 500 kilometre walk on Monday 29 October. The walk around his Flinders electorate will no doubt be a welcome change to the past few months in Canberra which saw him fail to attain the deputy leadership in the bid for the top job by Peter Dutton. In the turmoil that followed, Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull was eventually replaced as the leader of the Liberals, and Australia, by former treasurer Scott Morrison. Both Mr Hunt and Mr Dutton were subsequently reappointed to their respective portfolios – health for Mr Hunt and home affairs Mr Dutton – by their new leader, Mr Morrison. But the reverberations of the coup and its outcome continued with the loss of the Wentworth, Mr Turnbull’s old seat, in a by-election, to independent Kerryn Phelps. The same set of circumstances saw the now-retired-from-politics Mr Turbull dispatched to Bali last week by Mr Morrison to help explain to Indonesia the Australian government’s decision during the by-election to reassess its previous opposition to recognising Jerusalem as the capital of Israel. The US took that step in December last year. The trip ended disasterously for the government, with Mr Morrison saying the government would not again be using Mr Turbull as its official representative.

Mobile minister: Flinders MP Greg Hunt began his 500km charity walk around his electorate on Monday. He sees the walk as part of his role as both a local MP and Health Minister. And, right on cue, his mobile phone rang as soon as Mr Hunt and supporters started the trek at Rosebud. First stop was nearby Padua College, one of 50 schools he plans to visit during his 17 days on the road. Picture: Gary Sissons

Mr Hunt’s 29 October – 16 November walk to raise money for the Abacus Learning Centre and Light Up Autism Foundation is described by his media officer Mathew Langdon as a “formal work event”. “In fact, rather than taking time off or leave, it involves continuous electorate and portfolio work over weekdays and weekends”. The journey will see Mr Hunt visit 50 schools, described by Mr Langdon as “a core part of the duties of any

MP” and probably a record in such a short time by “any member of parliament in their electorate at federal or state level”. “If the minister were on leave he could not appropriately visit schools and not continue portfolio business,” Mr Langdon said. “It is in fact perhaps the most intense formal work period of his term. Indeed, he could be criticised for visiting schools other than in his official capacity. “In short, the office anticipates that

No government support for fencing at The Pillars

Supermarket bid

Stephen Taylor THE state government is still undecided about a temporary fence being built at The Pillars cliff jumping site despite a plea by Mornington Peninsula Shire Council for its help in controlling summer hordes. Port Phillip regional director Kelly Crosthwaite said on Friday the Department of Environment Land Water and Planning was “currently reviewing the information provided by council [on] construction of a temporary fence and will continue to work closely with council to resolve this matter”. Her comment followed a public meeting at the shire’s Mornington office Thursday 1 November which discussed the council’s inability to properly manage parking issues, keep watercraft away, and prevent mainly young thrill-seekers from risking death or injury by jumping at the popular site. Along with the young people comes litter, faeces, parking woes, alcohol and de-vegetation of the site which has become a summer nightmare for nearby residents. The meeting, chaired by Cr Bev Colomb and attended by about 50 people, aimed to “let residents know what’s proposed and to get their views”. Speakers included Mornington MP David Morris, resident Gill Johns, and shire officers Jessica Wingad and Niall McDonagh. Also discussed was the council’s inability to stop water craft: the proposed exclusion zone must be approved by Parks Victoria and policed by Parks Victoria or the Water Police.

THE Pillars meeting at Mornington Peninsula Shire offrices, Mornington.

Ms Crosthwaite said DELWP had been working with the council to develop a long-term plan for The Pillars. She said a plan had been finalised and adopted by council at its 11 September 2018 meeting. “The closure of the site with fencing was not supported by the community during the preparation of the long term management plan,” she said.

Previously, the mayor Cr Bryan Payne had sent a letter to energy, environment and climate change minister Lily D’Ambrosio raising “a range of issues, including the extreme risk to public safety” and request for indemnity for the council “against any liability, losses or claims which may arise from or in connection with the use of the Pillars site by members of the public”.

Continued from Page 3 “When it does, the community will have only 20 business days to respond,” he said. Mr Morris said the “sheer size” of the development in the Mornington Parkland Industrial Area would “put that pleasant, treed gateway to our town at risk”. He said Mr Wynne had “sidelined the council and effectively ruled out any serious local input, because he knows our councillors will stand up for our community”. “The same minister last week bypassed the council and approved a hydrogen liquefaction and loading terminal at Hastings,” Mr Morris said. “The last time a minister intervened directly in local planning decisions was almost a decade ago when Justin Madden approved the Masters development … and what a white elephant that turned out to be.” Mr Morris said Mr Wynne should “abandon his hand-picked panel and allow Mornington Peninsula Shire to consider this application on its merits”. “Unfortunately, he won't do that because he knows that these plans are a gross overdevelopment, on the wrong site, and that it simply doesn’t stack up.” Mr Brennan said Kaufland was making a “significant investment in Australia that will generate thousands of jobs and create opportunities for local businesses”. “An open and public process [was] now underway to consider the first six Victorian Kaufland stores, as well as our proposed Australian head office.” Mr Brennan said Kaufland was “committed to engaging with local communities and partners in an honest, transparent and fair way. This is a fundamental principle upon which all of our decisions are made.” “Regardless of the prescribed planning process, Kaufland will continue to engage with local councils in whose communities we are seeking to invest.”

Wonder women’s bayside fundraiser

Work starts on new shed

WONDER Woman Walk organiser Helen Powell said she was “amazed and overwhelmed” by the huge turn-out of supporters, Sunday 14 October. The 60 women taking part raised more than $13,000 for the Ovarian Cancer Research Foundation when they walked along the beach and foreshore from Safety Beach to Sorrento. Ms Powell was diagnosed with ovarian cancer five years ago after just two weeks of minor symptoms and is still being treated for the disease. “I could not believe that I could be diagnosed with such an advanced cancer without knowing,” Ms Powell said. “With little to no symptoms and no early detection most women are diagnosed when the cancer has already spread, making it very difficult to treat. “This is why it is the most lethal of the gynaecological cancers. To put it in perspective, only 40 per cent of women diagnosed with ovarian cancer will survive more than five years compared to 90 per cent of those diagnosed with breast cancer. “We need an early detection test to increase survival rates and this requires funding that can be maintained.” Ms Powell and colleague Jennifer Dordevic came up with the Wonder Woman Walk concept three years ago with six friends taking part. Last year the number increased to 18 and this year 60 women joined in. The Wonder Woman Walkers smashed their $9000 target and, with more than $13,000 raised so far this year, donations are still coming in. “It was a beautiful day for the walk and the members of the public showed much interest and encouragement as the superheros walked past,” Ms Powell said. She was overwhelmed with the interest from friends, colleagues from Monash University, strangers and friendsof-friends, with many travelling from country Victoria and one from Sydney to join the walk. Others included Ovarian Cancer Research Foundation CEO Lucinda Nolan and colleague Tamika Webb. “Sisters, mums, daughters, colleagues all walked together; it was very moving,” she said. Kate Sicilliano, who could not do the walk, put on a picnic lunch which raised more money for the cause. “We would love more women to get involved and any business which would like to be involved, too,” Ms Powell said. Stephen Taylor

MEMBERS of the Mount Martha Men’s Shed watched last week as the first so0d was turned on the site of their new building. The members have been raising money for the past 18 months to build their new shed at the New Peninsula Community Centre, in Craigie Road, Mt Martha. They have outgrown their old building since starting the group three years ago. Money for the new shed has come from the state government, Mornington Peninsula Shire, New Peninsula Baptist Church, Mt Martha Community Bank branch of Bendigo and Adelaide Bank and donations. The shed also expects to receive federal government money. “What started three years ago in a small shed here at the New Peninsula Community Centre has now grown to be a hub for a diverse group of men from the community to come together and share life,” Mount Martha Men’s Shed president Andrew Doncovio said. “The vision of the men’s shed movement is very much aligned with our church’s desire to provide support networks for those in need in our communities,” the church’s senior minister David Rietveld said. Flinders MP Greg Hunt MP said men’s shed’s “provide a safe, inclusive environment for Aussie males to come together to chat and put their years of skill to good use, as well as learn new ones”. The new shed is expecte4d to be completed by mid-2019.

Dollars for drought-hit farmers STAFF and customers at Coles Rosebud over the past two months have donated more than $25,000 to the Country Women’s Association to help drought-affected farmers. Coles says this makes them the top ranked fundraising store in the state and fourth nationally. With Coles matching every donation dollarfor-dollar during August and September, they

have helped to raise more than $1.06 million state-wide for farmers’ household and family expenses. On top of that, Coles has pledged $5 million in grants or interest-free loans from the Coles Nurture Fund to farmers for projects that will help them combat drought in the future.

Safe for the Libs, but not good for residents Why do we on the Mornington Peninsula in the state electorate of Nepean keep voting Liberal? Are we just stupid? When we look across Port Phillip at Geelong we see politicians on both sides falling all over themselves, promising this and that to be elected but, when we see the reality of voting for one side of politics, making Nepean a safe Liberal seat, we get nothing. Year after year nothing is done to upgrade our major roads, Peninsula Link stops at Jetty Road, Rosebud and has done since the 1980s, and I don’t think Martin Dixon, our retiring Liberal MP, has done anything to continue it onto Melbourne Road in Rye, distributing the traffic from Dromana to Sorrento. Point Nepean Road is another lost cause. It is the same dilapidated road that my father drove in the 1950s when he brought us down for the Christmas holidays, except for improvement at Rosebud and other shopping centres along this two-lane country road. Voting for a Liberal member has got Nepean residents nothing except a golden handshake for the Liberal member in retirement, and you could say the same thing with [Flinders MP] Greg Hunt, our federal member. Oh, he his good at cutting ribbons for small things, but major roads is not one of them. Think before you cast your vote this time for state and federal governments, think of what these politician have done for us in Nepean, as transport is not one of them. As we get older and our car licenses are taken from us, there are no trains, the bus service is a joke and taxis are too costly, a mobility scooter won’t get you far. We on the real Mornington Peninsula, from Dromana to Sorrento, have been left for dead in this safe Liberal electorate. Anthony Misell, Capel Sound

Refugee statistics Christine Fry needs to update her knowledge on refugee intake (“Refugees have a choice” Letters 30/10/18). When you look at refugees resettled through UNHCR, Australia lists fourth in 2015 with 9000 resettled refugees. Last year, 27,626 resettled refugees arrived in Australia, with the increase being due to the one-off commitment of 12,000 places for Syrian and Iraqi refugees and delays in the processing of refugee applications, which saw a reduction in arrivals in 2015. Here are the countries that resettled the most refugees through UNHCR in 2015: United States (66,500); Canada (20,000); Australia (9400); and Norway (2400) But while most refugees who are resettled in Australia come through the UN, this isn’t the only way it happens. Of the 2.34 million people given refugee status in 2015, only 0.1 per cent (2377 people) were given refugee status in Australia. At the end of 2015, Australia had 20,677asylum applications pending. Australia received 16,117 asylum applications in 2015, ranking it 61st relative to GDP worldwide. As comparison, a country such as Sweden in 2015 received 162,877 asylum seeker applications, plus 3400 UNHCR resettled refugees. When it comes to the total number of refugees recognised and resettled by a country, Australia ranks 25th (and 32nd on a per capita basis). These are the top five countries by that measure: Turkey, Russia, Germany, Tanzania and the United States. On a per capita basis, that list becomes: Turkey, Lebanon, Djibouti, Jordan and Rwanda. In the 10 years to December 31, 2015 the 139,398 refugees recognised or resettled by Australia accounted for 0.99 per cent of the global total of 14,129,593 — with Australia ranked 26th overall, 31st per capita and 46th relative to national GDP. Catarina Luczak, Somerville

Blame Labor/Greens I read with interest Ann Renkins’ comments calling on the Prime Minister Scott Morrison to apologise to the 52,000 plus illegal immigrants who were intercepted trying to sneak into Aus-


tralia through the back door (“Timely apology; show sympathy to refugees” Letters 30/10/18). Surely she must have her wires crossed? It was the Labor/Greens alliance that caused misery with adults and babies drowning at sea. The Labor/Greens alliance which opened 17 new detention centres, Manus Island and the detention centre on Christmas Island. What Scott Morrison did was to stop the boats. And now, after five years, having had to try and ascertain the true background and identity of people with no documents and who refuse to say where they are from, we are down to the last few. In the past nine weeks more than 50 children have been resettled. Yes, we need an apology, just not from Scott Morrison, who deserves our thanks. Michael Free, Mt Martha

Train priorities During the time of the Kennett Liberal government, the railway to Mornington was closed. The Liberals now want to electrify the railway as far as Baxter, which in 2016 had a population of 2162. This still leaves Mornington, population 23,989 in 2016, without a rail connection into Frankston and beyond. The population of the Mornington Peninsula was 155,000 in 2016 and is now 164,000 and growing. A discussion with the Mornington MP David Morris about the lack of regular and reliable public transport brought a shrug of his shoulders. The existing railway tracks and property are still in place. The local rail enthusiasts run tourist trains almost every weekend. There is no excuse for inaction by politicians. John Always, Mt Martha

Planning omission At a recent public state election forum held at RMIT, Labor and Liberal MPs were invited to present election policies and take questions from a 100 or so concerned citizens. Mornington’s MP, David Morris, to his credit, was one of the four MPs who turned up; none were from Daniel Andrews’s ALP government. Mr Morris talked about Phillip Island and Hume councils as well as being drawn into the City of Melbourne elections, but at no time did he mention Mornington or the threat to the green wedge and beyond the urban zone; property developer plans to build five-storey buildings in Kunyung Road, Mt Eliza; and potential subdivisions to the last Ansett cliff top estate. Surely Mr Morris has the responsibility to support his electorate and show more determination on such issues? His law and order policies are a red herring or, in this case, a blue herring, as where are the alternative political candidates in this safe Liberal seat? Ian Morrison, Mt Eliza Community Alliance and Kunyung Road Action Group Editor: The Labor Party last week named its three candidates for the three Mornington Peninsula electorates – Ryan White, Mornington; Chris Brayne, Nepean (“Labor’s late start in Nepean” The News 1/10/18); and Simon Meyer, Hastings.

We ‘deserve better’ One might think that [senior manager project engagement] Kelly Parkinson and his employer AGL had received the message by now (“Supply concerns drive gas import ‘urgency’” The News 24/10/18). In his diatribe Mr Parkinson and AGL continue to display their unbridled desperation to get their floating gas terminal at Crib Point. AGL’s modus operandi is classic corporate sleight of hand. Hire as many “independent experts” to produce as much one-sided information as possible and then keep rehashing the same old rehearsed arguments, most of which have proven to be false and misleading (such as the promise of jobs, cheaper gas prices and the false guarantee of supply). Twenty-six public meetings (AGL’s figure) sounds impressive. The trouble is that AGL’s version of community consultation is to steam-

Southern Peninsula News 6 November 2018

roll and brainwash with mountains of spin, dodgy “expert” reports and fear tactics. Should that fail then throw some cash bribes at local community groups and sporting clubs. If only AGL hadn’t offloaded our gas reserves in the first place. The company’s track record simply shows that it cannot be trusted environmentally, economically or ethically. Sadly, the EIS will only serve to delay what I regard as bullying tactics and environmental vandalism. Ironically, Planning Minister Richard Wynne appears to be following suite. Bypassing local government planning rules, he wrote to the mayor of the Mornington Peninsula Shire Council, Brian Payne, last week, to inform him he had used his ministerial powers to approve the construction of a hydrogen liquefaction and loading terminal in the shire. It will be built at BlueScope Steel’s terminal site at the Port of Hastings in Western Port. No community consultation at all. Western Port deserves better, but we are going to have to fight for it. Bill Mitchell, Somers

Divided community The steering committee of Save Westernport was recently informed that a person driving a white ute was systematically driving around and taking down No AGL posters from fences and roadside locations. One of our members replaced the signs on her front fence 15 times before she gave up. And I came home to find my own sign unceremoniously torn and cut off from my front gate. Why would any resident of the Western Port area feel so passionate about wanting to have a large polluting gas factory with its accompanying pipeline and visiting LNG tankers compromising the fragile ecology of a renowned fishing spot and Internationally designated Ramsar wetland installed? AGL has made it quite clear that it will create very few jobs. However, AGL has approached local businesses and sporting associations with offers of substantial amounts of money and other benefits if they support AGL to use the bay for its hugely profitable plan. For the residents who have felt left behind, or sidelined by mainstream society, the jobless and disenfranchised, finally it feels like someone is taking notice of them. The boredom and bitterness of many of those left behind by the push of large corporations to exploit and plunder for the benefit and profit of its stakeholders is, in their naive view, finally going to be mitigated. And a community divided is a community which can easily be persuaded to sit back and passively allow a huge corporate to come in and irreversibly ruin yet another one of nature’s vital refuges. Candy van Rood, Crib Point

Environmental credibility Rupert Steiner is spot on regarding AGL’s senior management project engagement, Kelly Parkinson denying any adverse impacts of the proposed Crib Point gas import project and promoting it as “a safe and environmentally responsible project” (“Questionable claims” Letters 30/10/18). The allusion to chlorine in drinking water being safe is misleading – chlorine is added to drinking water to kill life forms in the water. The statement “when the water returns to Western Port it will break down to an undetectable level within 20 seconds” presumably refers to the concentration of 0.1 mg/l of chlorine in the discharged water becoming undetectable. No reference can be found in AGL’s report “Chlorine in seawater heat exchange process at Crib Point” to chlorine being undetectable within 20 seconds of discharge. Rather, the report identifies the complex reactions between chlorine and bromine in seawater, notes that the resulting toxicity from bromine generated products may be greater than chlorine in the pH range of the seawater and identifies chlorine concentrations after initial dilution and six-hour chemical reaction at 16-18oC as 0.006 – 0.001 mg/l, depending on the number and type of discharge outlets. Recognising the susceptibility of a number of larval and juvenile marine species to chlorine-based toxicants at the concentrations stated in the report, together with the volume of 450,000 cubic meters of chlorinated water being discharged daily, the article by Parkinson would have been more assuring had it absolutely excluded the possibility that no tidal plume

of chlorine-based toxicants will spread to the adjacent Ramsar wetlands, adversely impacting on resident species. The Western Port community deserves technically credible statements on this important issue – not vague assurances that all will be well. John Humphrey, Bittern

Power play If anyone needs a reminder that both Labor and LNP are in the pay of the carbon lobby, the latest decision by Planning Minister Richard Wynne to give the go ahead for a hydrogen liquefaction and shipping facility at Hastings, just a minute before going into caretaker mode, says it all. The brown coal from AGL’S Latrobe Valley coal deposits will be burned to make hydrogen. But the whole process is still in a developmental phase and no one has any idea if the proposed carbon sequestration for this project even is achievable. But obviously our minister must have had a vision of the future and knows that this is possible. Shame on you Mr Wynne. Rupert Steiner, Balnarring Beach Editor: The Labor state government and the Liberal Natioonal federal government have eacg given $50 million towards the hydrogen project led by Kawasaki Heavy Industries (“Parties unite over power” The News 17/4/18).

Government rip off How do you think I feel when I do not have mains water and have to pay the parks and gardens levy to the tune of $238.75, which goes up each year (“All time levy” Letters 30/10/18)? Audrey Doueal is lucky with only $77.10. I have phoned and been told I have to pay, but no one has helped me with rebates for building tanks to supply the house with water or with electricity as every time you turn on a tap the pump goes on. Imaging what amount of revenue this adds up to? Why has there not been any move to advise how much is collected and how much parks and gardens actually use and what happens to the balance.? Transparency is needed and the whole system should be overhauled. John Thompson Dromana

Kaufland? Can’t wait There is a bit of indignation that the German Kaufland supermarket chain is seeking permits from the state government rather than Mornington Peninsula Shire Council to build a giant complex in Mornington (“Make supermarket giant ‘compete fairly’” The News 30/10/18). A huge development like this proposal is likely beyond the ken of a local council. The business acumen of the shire appears to be wholly directed to generating as much tourism as possible and eliminating council carbon emissions. The ethical status of our council is illustrated by a rates surcharge of nearly $200, in defiance of a government-imposed rates cap introduced to reign in excessive rates. The intellectual capacity of our council can be gauged by them expecting us to believe that the surcharge is for waste services already paid for by general rates. Bring on the development. The sooner the better. It will be of great benefit to all residents. Brian A Mitchelson, Mornington

Mental health priority Many will say too many royal commissions, but the proposed royal commission into mental health in Victoria by Premier Daniel Andrews, if he is re-elected, is welcome news to us carers who try and navigate a broken system. Mental Health for far to long has been the Cinderella of health in this country. As people like Professor McGorry and Professor Alan Fels, former chair of The National Mental Commission, have both stated on many occasions, more needs to done to fix an antiquated mental health system. I have a son with schizophrenia, diagnosed over 20 years, and believe me it has been and is a roller-coaster ride due to lack of continuity of care and resources in the public system. More money is not necessary the answer, but how and where it is spent. I will be making a submission to the proposed royal commission and encourage others to do so. We need a bipartisan approach, so come on [state Liberal leader] Mathew Guy, do the right thing and ensure that we get this much-needed royal commission. Denise Hassett, Mt Martha


New aged care home to meet growing need in Rye With a growing need for aged care accommodation on the Mornington Peninsula, Japara’s new Rye home is a welcome addition to the community. The newly constructed Rye Sands will open later this month, catering for 99 residents in private single rooms and ensuites. Located just minutes from the beach and town centre, the home features an on-site café, chapel and theatre space, wellness room, and lots of break-out lounge and dining room spaces for relaxing and catching up with friends and family. Japara’s Development Manager Frank Michienzi said that the new development was in response to a growing need for residential aged care in the area. “Reports show that the Mornington Peninsula already has a shortfall of

approximately 190 residential aged care places,” he said. The Mornington Peninsula has the oldest population of all metropolitan Melbourne regions, with State Government reports forecasting that 21% of the shire’s residents will be aged 70 or over in the next 15 years. Japara’s development is an estimated $20 million in local investment – 20% of the total investment in aged care homes in the Mornington Peninsula region since 2012.

Rye Sands will hold a community open day on Saturday 17 November from 9am to 3pm at 36-40 Weir St, Rye. You can also find out more information on the Japara website or by calling 1800 52 72 72.

— Japara is one of Australia’s largest aged care and retirement providers, with 49 accredited homes around Australia.

A render illustrating a resident’s room at Rye Sands.

Mr Michienzi said that the home’s construction had supported an estimated 185 full-time construction jobs. “When Rye Sands opens it will provide on-going employment for 105 people, generating an estimated $4.8 million in wages and supporting local businesses,” he said. “Japara also provides significant training opportunities for employees, adding to the overall skills base of the local labour force.” A render illustrating the exterior of Rye Sands.

Hello Rye.

Community Open Day –

Saturday 17 November from 9am—3pm

Kaufland store for Mornington Gateway Have your say The Victorian Minister for Planning the Hon Richard Wynne has removed the decision making power from your elected Councillors to an Advisory Committee of three people he has appointed. The state government will now consider an application for a major supermarket development on the gateway site to Mornington. This issues paper has been developed by the Council to assist members of the community to understand the potential impact of the proposed development and to have their say. Rules of making a submission applied by the government: Pro forma letters or petitions will be treated as a single submission and only the first person or sender will receive a reply.

What is a Kaufland Store? Kaufland’s “hypermarket” model is described as a cross between a supermarket and a Kmart, with supermarket staples and extras like bikes or car maintenance supplies.

The Size It is proposed to be more than 4,000 square metres which will include a number of smaller tenancies.

The Issues 1. The proposed location is on the border of the green wedge and will destroy the prominent entry gateway to Mornington which has a setback of 90 metres and landscaping to reflect the environmental entry.

Indicative image

2. The current plans envisage minimum landscaping and turning the 90 metre setback into a 430 vehicle car park with less than a twenty metre strip of landscaping. 3. A twenty-metre-high and sixty-metre-long advertising sign on top of the building will dominate the ‘green’ gateway skyline. 4. The establishment of such a major retail site on industrial land outside the Mornington Activity Centre could have a major impact on the retail economy within the Mornington Village and result in vacant shops down Main Street. 5. The proposal will cause major traffic congestion on Oakbank Road and create a “rat run” through the local streets causing more congestion on Bungower Road.

Proposed development footprint

Advisory Committee process and how to make a submission To learn more and have your say, make a submission at the following state government submissions page Or go to our website and follow the link to the state government submissions page.

The state government has given no indication when the proposed development will go on public exhibition. When it does the community will only have 20 business days to respond.

Let the state government know what you think via email Minister for Planning Member for Mornington Member for Eastern Victoria Member for Eastern Victoria Member for Eastern Victoria Member for Eastern Victoria

"We had a choice of agents when selling my house in Mount Martha. We spent time with each and critically examined market knowledge, honesty in communication, recommendations for how best to present my property and of course commission/marketing rates. Bonaccorde gave us confidence which subsequently was well placed. House sold for a good price and in 10 days, with 30 day settlement.  Marketing advice from Jane, support from Brendan and Cain were cherries on the top. The presentation of our home was influenced by their recommendations and together it was a great team effort and best outcome." Vendors | 10 A'Beckett Cl, Mt Martha

Endermologie: a natural solution ENDERMOLOGIE is most renowned as being the World’s Number 1 treatment for cellulite. This noninvasive massage technique is designed to reduce pockets of stubborn fat and stimulate a natural production of collagen, elastin and hyaluronic acid to restore youthful suppleness to the skin’s connective tissues, leaving it smooth and toned Endermologie’s anti-ageing facials are also becoming more popular with women who don’t want to risk invasive procedures such as fillers, botox and laser, but still want to maintain a youthful appearance. But, did you know that Endermologie started life as a medical tool to treat scar tissue? Louis Paul Guitay (LPG) is the Engineer who created and patented the Lipomassage technique. As a result of a car accident in the early 1980s, LPG suffered extensive burns and had to endure hours of manual massage therapy to relieve the fibrosis (thickening and hardening) of his scarred skin. As well as being painstakingly slow and excruciatingly painful, LPG recognised that manual massage was limited in efficacy and so he set out to create a pain free, consistent and effective treatment for skin manipulation. And so, Endermologie was born! Since then, over the last 30-plus years, Endermologie has been clinically proven (by more than 145 scientific studies to date) to treat not only scars, but also muscular pain and spasms, heavy legs and inflammation, improve blood (+400%) and lymphatic (+300%) circulation and relieve the symptoms of


Fibromyalgia and Scleroderma. One clinical study showed that patients treated with Endermologie reported relief of pain, fatigue, morning tiredness, work difficulty, stiffness, anxiety and depression. It has also been shown to improve sleep patterns, posture and overall quality of life. Endermologie is also an invaluable tool for athletes. The increased circulation and lymphatic drainage prevents and relieves lactic acid buildup (DOMS) and reduces inflammation to improve overall flexibility and allow faster muscle recovery. As Niamh’s husband runs CrossFit Mt Eliza at the same address, she’s used to helping athletes relieve DOMS and muscle pain. This is one Client’s experience: “I went to see Niamh for some Endermologie recently after a functional knee injury. During the treatment, which only took 20 minutes, I felt relaxed, comfortable and informed the whole time...and I left feeling taller, lighter and in less pain.” Niamh Hislop, ex-Nurse and owner of Peninsula Endermologie, is trained in the therapeutic and beauty applications of Endermologie and practices from her beautiful treatment room in Mt Eliza. So, whether you’re ready to tackle that cellulite and get rid of stubborn fat, improve your complexion or need relief from pain and discomfort, you can now join the 20 million people worldwide who use Endermologie to achieve overall wellness.

Southern Peninsula News 6 November 2018


Compiled by Brodie Cowburn THE atrocities committed by the Germans in France and Belgium should induce all eligible Australians to enlist, for they show at a glance what Germany will do to Australia if she is ever allowed to come here. It is vitally important to remember in this connection that the only guarantee that she will not come here now or later lies in an outright victory for the Allies - a victory which every eligible Australian should at this moment be helping to win. By far the most terrible document published since the War began - perhaps, indeed, the most terrible document ever given to the world is the official report of the British Commission appointed to examine into the Belgian atrocities. The report is a terrible record of cruelty and lust. Captives and non-combatants were systematically mutilated by the German Army, apparently in accordance with some secret and hideous injunction set down in the devil’s handbook of “frightfulness.” Civilians were freely shot, apparently for the sheer joy of murder. Little children were mutilated, and women were repeatedly violated and then hacked to death, so that their bodies became unrecognisable. Here are two instances of mutilation: “In the blacksmith’s shop in Hofstade I saw the blacksmith dead with his hands cut off and his wrists still tied. Our whole company saw him, I should think. In another house I saw a child of 10 to 11 years kneeling; he was dead, a bayonet had been stuck through his chest. “The other woman was about 20 years old. She had a bayonet wound in the head and her legs had been cut almost off. The whole room was covered in blood. The bodies of the two women were lying side by side, and that of the man a little apart. We entered another house further on, on the same side of the road. In the downstairs room was a hanging lamp, and a boy of about 10 years of age was hanging to it by a piece of string. The string was round his neck. He has a bayonet wound in the stomach. There was a pool of blood under the body. The blood had dried, I think. I did not touch any of these four bodies.” The atrocities on women should come home with terrible force to every Australian who values his manhood. Such loathsome acts as the following were of repeated occurrence: “When we entered Hofstade in August last, or some village near to it, a girl of about 18 or 19 years of age complained to me and my comrades (four) that she had been violated by several German soldiers for a period of about two hours before we entered the village on the threshold of a house in full daylight and in view of villagers. When I saw her she was covered only with a chemise and skirt.” In the name of humanity, every Australian of military age is today asked to enlist, so that these horrors may be avenged, and the world may be made safe for ever from the possibility of their recurrence. If Germany is not beaten, Australian homes may yet be visited by the Hun during the lifetime of you to whom this appeal is addressed. Go forth and play your part. *** MRS. W. P. Mason of “Tally Oh’’ requests us to notify that she intends to form an orchestra in Frankston for patriotic purposes and will be pleased if those willing to join will notify her at the above address. *** ON Tuesday, 19th November, at 3 o’clock, M r Bernard Michael will offer for sale it the Royal hotel, Dandeuong, a farm property at Carrum, known as Walsh’s, containing 100 acres (about), Situated two miles from Seaford and Frankston Railway Stations by a good road.

An unexpected opportunity is now afforded the public of Australia to secure copies of a second great souvenir of the part played by Australians in the war. This is the “A.I.F. Xmas Book” previously issued only to the troops overseas. It forms a companion publication of the “Anzac Book” a few copies of which are still obtainable. While the “Anzac Book” dealt with the campaign in Gallipoli, the “Xmas Book” relates wholly to the briliant exploits of the Australians in France. It contains over 150 engravings ranging from grave to gay and covers the period from the arrival of the A.I.F. in France to the date of issue. There are pictures of every battlefield over which the Australians fought. These were taken at frequent intervals in the actual fighting at Florubaix. Armentieres, Pozieres, Mouquet Farm, the Somme in winter, Flers, Martinpuich, Le Sars Bapaume, Bullecourt, the Hindenburg Line, Measines, Polygon Wood and Ypres. The “Xmas Book” has been described by a high British authority as “the finest collection of war photographs I have yet seen.” It has been published under the direction of a committee composed of Major General N. M. Symth, Major General E. G. Sinclair Maclagan and Mr C. E. W. Bean official war correspondent. For Australia the sale of the “Xmas Book” has been placed in the hands of a committee of which Mr Thomas Trumble, secretary for Defence, is chairman. Copies may be had at 4s 6d each from leading booksellers. They are not to be sold to the public in Great Britain and when present supplies are exhausted it will be impossible to secure copies as the book will not be reprinted. Already £4,500 has been paid into the troops patriotic funds from the sale of the books and it is hoped that a further substantial contribution will result from the sale affected in Australia. *** Our Letter Box. TO THE EDITOR Sir, An earnest endeavour is now being made to establish a sub branch of the returned sailors’ and soldiers’ Imperial League in Frankston. A meeting is called for Saturday, 16th inst., in the Mechanics’ Institute, at 7 p.m. In reply to Mr C. Wood’s letter of an earlier date, the bye-laws and rules of the constitution, as already established in various sub branches, will be adopted. Dealing with memberships, the rule reads: Any person who has served in, or with, the British army or navy, on active service, and who is not now eligible for enlistment will be entitled to membership.

Your Guide to Being the Office DJ By Stuart McCullough IT’S an awesome responsibility. One that sat on my shoulders like fullgrown gorilla without impulse control. Get it right, and it would bring people together. Get it wrong, and it could repel those in attendance resulting in a room that was cavernously empty and echoing with the sound of failure. Not that I wasn’t up for the challenge. After all, it was my first official attempt at being the ‘office DJ’. I say ‘official’ in that my colleagues have borne the brunt of my musical predilections. There have been car trips where the question ‘I can’t believe you’ve never heard of [insert band name here]’ which, but for the fact that I had complete control of the stereo, would have resulted in awkward silence. But this was different. This was an event with guests. Trying to keep people broadly happy was the name of the game. There was no room for error and, as a result, obscure musical choices would need to be kept to an absolute minimum. My history as a disc jockey might best be described as ‘checkered’ if you’re being polite and ‘controversial’ if you’re being honest. I can recall being let loose at someone’s twentyfirst and managing to clear the dance floor in record time. Turns out, very few people like Lyle Lovett as much as I do. Or my last day of high school when I commandeered the public address system and confused a generation of youngsters by spinning Chad Morgan’s ‘The Sheik From Scrubby Creek’, followed by Dolly Parton’s ‘9 to 5’. (I was being ironic. I think.) There are family functions too nu-

merous to mention when my musical choices have dented the momentum somewhat. My insistence that we ditch the more traditional ‘Happy Birthday’ in favour of Carl Orff’s ‘Carmina Burana’ was not as well received as I’d hoped. And it caused quite some confusion for the twelve year old whose birthday it was. Ditto the time that I decided that the Beastie Boys would be a suitable a backdrop only for stunned silence to follow as an avalanche of f-bombs fell down over Sunday lunch. Glancing through the songs on my computer, I knew that simply selecting ‘shuffle’ and hoping for the best would be tempting fate. And fate, as

we know, is an absolute sucker for temptation. Granted, I could see some Sam Cooke and James Brown; things I knew that everybody could enjoy. But I could also see less appropriate songs, such as Andrew WK’s somewhat selfexplanatory ‘Party ‘Til You Puke’ and the never-appropriate-at-work ‘Nude School’ by Painters and Dockers. I would have to make playlist specific to the occasion. But before selecting which tunes to inflict on workmates and guests alike, I needed to build a sense of anticipation. More importantly, I needed to lower expectations. So that whatever I came up with would feel like welcome relief. When word got out that I was

putting together a playlist, I’d be sure to say something encouraging like, ‘I sure hope everyone likes gangster rap as much as I do.’ Generally, this was greeted with a shuffling of feet and an avoidance of eye contact. Had expectations been any lower, you could trip over them. I knew I’d overstepped the mark when a larger than expected number of potential guests offered their apologies. But it’s not just a matter of the songs. It’s also the question of volume. The wrong choice when it comes to volume can completely ruin an office event. Too soft and you run the risk of being a total buzz kill. Too loud and you may drive people out of the

venue. The latter describes my entire career as a musician when, invariably, we cranked up the amps and the sea of people on the dance floor would part as though Moses himself was rocking to microphone. Importantly, I ran a series of tests. I tried various songs at different volumes and tried to calculate the sound-absorbing effect of a room full of people. As best I could tell, it was loud enough to be heard (and, importantly, to let everyone know awesome my taste in music is) without stifling conversation. I gravitated towards the classics. I’m talking Solomon Burke, Joe Tex, Aretha Franklin and Etta James. Everyone likes soul music. Except, of course, Vladimir Putin, who is completely immune to human emotion and is on the record as being a huge fan of the band Aqua. Luckily, Putin wasn’t coming. He always brings down the mood and there was not a cinder’s chance in hell that I was going to give ‘Barbie Girl’ a spin, no matter how much he begged. At the right moment, I connected the laptop to the Bluetooth speaker and we were away. Music started. There was even the ultimate office DJ accolade of heads nodding in an appreciative manner. Importantly, nobody left the room to get away from the noise I was making. Music is a funny thing. It can and should bring people together. But it requires care and planning, and should not be left to chance. I’m all for algorithms that read your mind, but there’s something to be said for something that requires time and effort. And avoiding Aqua. Rock on.

Light work: Pines made light work of Baden Powell to claim the first innings. Picture: Andrew Hurst

Pines’ bowling puts Baden Powell to the sword By Brodie Cowburn


PINES have put on a clinical bowling performance to easily claim the first innings over Baden Powell. Baden Powell’s first four wickets fell for just 18 runs, leaving them little hope of getting anywhere near Pines’ total. Damien Lawrence was pick of the bowlers for Pines, tearing through the tail to claim figures of 4/16 off 16 overs. Pines then enforced the follow on, and left Pines at 1/20 going into their second innings. Red Hill faced off a decent charge from Somerville to hold their first innings lead, although an impressive knock of 49 runs from opener Brenton Alp caused the Hillmen some headaches. Brent Martin was at his best for Red Hill, claiming figures of 5/47. Somerville fell just short of their target of 184, ending up all out for 152. The result is particularly disappointing given they looked a good chance at 7/147. Main Ridge have fallen agonisingly shirt of catching up to Crib Point’s first innings total in their two-dayer match. Crib Point set a healthy total of 190 to chase at Ditterich Reserve, and were given a good run for their money. William Noall’s middle order knock of 49 nearly proved the difference, as his side was bowled out just 8 runs short of taking the lead. Ridge’s last

three batsmen combined for just four runs. At Ballam Park East, Long Island’s dismal first innings total of 75 was quite easily surpassed by Moorooduc. Madushanka Perera’s innings of 61 was nearly enough to pass the total alone, as his side combined for a good total of 168 all out. Long Island showed a little more fight as they got their second innings underway, pulling up stumps at 4/137.


ROSEBUD struggled to defend their first innings total of 145 against Carrum at Roy Dore reserve. Carrum’s openers got things off on the right foot, and at 0/55 they looked to be cruising their way to a win. John Mitchell was handy with 49 before being dismissed by the impressive Billy Quigley. Carrum surpassed 145 with 7 wickets still in hand. Delacombe Park comfortably went to work about defending 235, as the Seaford Tigers struggled to make a splash in their innings. Thanks to Ricky Ramsdale’s brilliant 4/20 off 20 overs, the Tigers ended up all out for 108. Delacombe Park’s second inning got off to a shakier start, they finished the day at 2/30 off only 8 overs. Hastings easily won the first innings over Seaford, as they batted to 3/178 before declaring. This easily surpassed hastings’ dismal 81 runs from

their first innings. Seaford set about their second innings with a little more purpose, but still ended the day at 7/105. Mitch Anderson was the pick of their batsmen, putting together a total of 43. Mt Martha had to work hard to surpass a total of 145 from Heatherhill. Rhys Whitling’s late innings total of 45 proved a huge help as his side claimed the first innings and finished at 9/162. Rye got nowhere near Dromana’s tame total of 125, as they were left all out and rattled for just 56 runs off 29 overs. Zacc Clan played the game of his life, claiming a brilliant 8/16 off 14 overs. Six of those wickets came from clean bowling his opponents. Dromana followed up with a good second innings total of 3/126 before declaring. Rye were sent in to bat once again and ended up at 4/94 before the end of play for the day.


FRANKSTON YCW have had little trouble defending their first innings total of 207 at Peninsula Reserve, claiming an easy win over Skye. Skye could only answer with 83 before losing all their wickets, they were sent to follow on for their second innings, and ended the day at a far from inspiring 5/94. All ten Stonecats fieldsmen bowled during the second innings.

At Citation Reserve, Tootgarook have pulled off a miracle to claim victory over balnarring. Chasing a difficult first innings total of 212 to win, Tootgarook’s openers combined for just 13 runs. Luckily first drop batsman Robert French was in an aggressive mood, as he hit 61 runs from only 56 balls. He hit 13 fours, showing he was not much in the mood for too much running between wickets. After the quick loss of three wickets for four runs in the middle order, Tim Symons came in to steady the ship with a cool 58 not out from 131 deliveries. A decent performance from the tail saw Tootgarook successfully reach 213 with two wickets to spare. Carrum Downs will also be devastated to have let slip their first innings lead of 250 over Tyabb. Starting slowly at 2/9 then at 3/35, all looked doom and gloom for the Yabbies. Jarrod White put his hand up for his struggling side, and put together a magnificent century. He claimed 105 runs from 211 deliveries. A brilliant innings of 94 from middle order partner Michael Edwards was enough to put Tyabb ahead at 4/253 from 76 overs.


FLINDERS battled hard to meet Mt Eliza’s total of 203 in Provincial cricket on Saturday, but a tail order collapse

has left them falling short. Blake Hogan-Keogh left his side in pole position with an innings of 87, but those that followed could not build on his hard work. From 4/152, Mt Eliza ended up all out for 178. Pearcedale’s middle order were brave, but fell well short of meeting Mornington’s target of 276. Kaine Smith came within a run of a half century but it wasn’t enough, as his Pearcedale outfit were bowled out for 182. Langwarrin would have felt comfortable heading into the second day of their match against Peninsula Old Boys, defending a total of 295. At 3/120, OB looked to be gaining on their opponents, before two quick wickets fell. Wade Pelzer battled hard with 78, but once he was dismissed the innings fell apart. Peninsula OB were dismissed for 211. Sorrento have pulled off an impossible task to close out the weekend, chasing down Baxter’s mammoth first innings total of 6/318. Opener Corey Harris took matters into his own hands for the Sharks, scoring a stunning 128 to set his side up for a great escape. With time running out, Sorrento made their target with a little more than three overs to spare. They were left with seven wickets in hand and can hold their heads high after a brilliant showing.

Verdun: ‘We’ll win the league’ SOCCER

By Craig MacKenzie DANNY Verdun has thrown down the gauntlet to opposition clubs in State 2 South-East declaring that Peninsula Strikers will win the championship next season. Recently appointed as head coach of the Centenary Park club Verdun addressed an audience of mainly current and prospective players last Thursday evening at Strikers’ home ground. Over 70 people attended and listened intently as Verdun told them what he expected from his players. “It doesn’t matter how old you are or your output as a footballer this is all about the attitude you bring to this club,” Verdun said. “If the attitude and hunger is not there, if the desire is not there along with the discipline to do the job that this club deserves – these are the most important things I want to get through to you tonight and this is what the club expects from you.” Verdun touched on his own migrant experience after coming to Australia from his native Uruguay to emphasise the importance of persistence in the face of adversity and the link between hard work and success. He then outlined his aims for next season. “This club is going to win this league next year,” he said. “I’ve had people come up to me at the end of a season and pat me on the back for finishing third and I’m telling you I can’t stand that. “We’re here to win.” There is no doubt that Verdun and assistant Neil Standish who also spoke at the meeting will bring a core group of players with them from previous club Knox City and if they can retain the bulk of Strikers’ 2018 squad then Verdun’s target is realistic. Strikers’ Players’ Player of the Year Alex Van Heerwarden and forward John Prescott have been linked with Langwarrin. Prescott was at Thursday’s meeting while Van Heerwarden was on holiday. Strikers recently made major changes off the field with Trevor Johnston stepping down as president and being replaced by Marty Sutherland, a 40-year-old who hails from Inverness in Scotland. Sutherland played with famous Highland League club Forres Mechanics and has been with Strikers for seven years. Johnston led the club for two years wiping out its debt and eventually

forging a good relationship with Strikers’ junior wing and Sutherland plans to build on Johnston’s achievements. “I wanted to carry on the good work that Trevor has done and to continue his legacy,” Sutherland said. “That’s really important especially with the juniors coming in.” Evidence of the now positive relationship between Strikers’ senior and junior clubs is the presence of seven members from the juniors on Sutherland’s 15-strong committee including junior president Adrian Scalpi. “It’s really important to continue to work with the juniors and we want our reserve team to be an under-23 side,” Sutherland added. He also wants to end the coaching instability that has plagued the club in recent times. Verdun is Strikers’ eighth senior coach in just over 12 months following in the footsteps of Craig Lewis, Billy Buchanan, Willie Raines, Andy O’Dell, Jamie Paterson, Lenny Greenan and Jamie Skelly. The club also has had to cope with a large player turnover. “I think we used 47 players last season and we don’t want to go through that again,” Sutherland said. Verdun’s first session as head coach will be on Tuesday 11 December at Centenary Park. There will be a break over Christmas and New Year before pre-season

resumes on Tuesday 8 January four days before the first of a series of preseason games all at home. In NPL2 Langwarrin continues to build an imposing senior squad for 2019 with news that Springvale White Eagles’ top scorer for the past three seasons, Damir Stoilovic, has agreed to join the Lawton Park outfit. The 21-year-old has scored 35 goals in three seasons and in 2016 was named NPL2 Young Player of the Year. “Damir has been of interest for some time and I watched him on numerous occasions towards the end of the season,” Langwarrin head coach Scott Miller said. “He’ll provide the squad with further quality and depth and more importantly a real balance in our attacking midfield options.” Stoilovic and other recent signings David Stirton, Luis Covarrubias and Jordan Templin are evidence of a new-look senior squad with much improved strikepower as Langwarrin targets a top six finish in NPL2 which would maintain its second-tier status when the elite competition is restructured for the 2020 season. And you can expect more new signings to arrive at Lawton Park. Meanwhile Langwarrin under-16s head coach Doug Hodgson has recently returned from a business trip to the UK and has arranged a series of tour

matches for his squad in England next year. Hodgson is a former Sheffield United defender and was the first Australian to move into management at a professional club in England during his stint as The Blades reserves manager. He has arranged games against Wolves, Birmingham City, West Bromwich Albion and Sheffield United and is hoping to add a match against Watford to the itinerary. In NPLW news Southern United announced last week that physiotherapist Anna Trnka would again work with the players after assisting them with running retraining and sports injury management throughout the 2018 season. Trnka has been part of the Back in Motion Patterson Lakes team since February 2017 after moving to Melbourne from country Victoria. She competed as an elite crosscountry skier for nine years before retiring in 2015 having represented Australia at the World Championships in Val di Fiemme, Italy (2013) and in Falun, Sweden (2015). Trnka’s focus is on active rehabilitation and exercise therapy to help players eliminate pain, prevent injury and enhance performance and her special physiotherapy interests include running assessments, injury prevention screening and Pilates. In State 3 South-East news Frankston Pines announced the resigning of Lewis Potter and Luke Murray last week. Potter, 29, has been with Leicester City’s academy squad and has played with Langwarrin and Strikers. He can play at the back or in midfield.

“I’m delighted we have retained Lewis for 2019,” senior coach Kevin “Squizzy” Taylor said. “He will be important for us both as a player and as a role model for the younger players we have brought in. “He’s an experienced footballer with good technique who likes to keep the ball on the deck.” Murray, 23, is a former Peninsula Strikers and Seaford United player who has played at the back, in midfield and up front at Monterey Reserve. He had spells with South Melbourne and Dandenong Thunder as a junior player. “Luke is a dynamic, technically skilled player who can play in a number of positions and he’ll prove his worth during the season,” Taylor said. Murray is convinced that Pines can bounce straight back after the disappointment of being relegated from State 2 South-East last season. “There’s no way I could leave after we went down and I want to win the league with Pines next year,” Murray said. “I think having ‘Squizzy’ in charge and with the new players he’s bringing in it might be just what the club needed.” Pines also confirmed last week that former president Gary Hodgson and wife Pip, who had served as club treasurer, had been granted life membership. “Both Gary and Pip have worked tirelessly over many years to ensure the club not only survived but were instrumental in gaining approval for the new $3.8 million new clubrooms that will be built at Monterey Reserve,” president Steve Spencer said. “This is a very small way that the club can repay Gary and Pip for everything they have done and achieved over the years.” However one of the downsides of the Hodgsons stepping down from the committee is the increasing likelihood that their son, CJ, has played his last game for Pines. The 25-year-old has played in most outfield positions at Monterey Reserve and has even played in goal but he is due to meet with Doveton officials this week. In an off-season story published in these pages late last year Hodgson said he’d be at Pines as long as his parents were involved which gives newly promoted State 1 South-East outfit Doveton a second-to-none chance to get its man.


Weir aces Cup day feature By Ben Triandafillou THOUSANDS of race goers packed into the Mornington Racecourse on Sunday 4 November for the annual Peninsula Cup. The highlight of the year for the Mornington Racecourse saw a crowd of more than 9,300 people flock into the stands to witness the Warrnambool-based master trainer, Darren Weir, claim yet another country cup. Having also won the Mornington Cup in March with Kings Will Dream, Weir backed-up his success on Sunday to take out the Peninsula Cup with five-year-old stallion, Royal Ace. Despite drifting in the market before the race, Royal Ace managed to run over the heavily supported Mornington-based gelding, Call It A Day, in the final 50 metres of the straight to land the victory. The win made it back-to-back victories for the son of Casino Prince who claimed a benchmark 78 race at Moe in emphatic fashion at his start prior. Royal Ace held a half-length margin over the Wez Hunter-trained Call It A Day (second) and the Maher/ Eustace-trained gelding, Black Sail (third). Winning jockey Ben Allen said his mount, Royal Ace, can be quite a good horse when he starts to switch on. “He’s definitely got his own personality,” Allen said. “When he does have his mind on the job, he can really gallop so that was good.

“I was happy [with the pace], he was in a rhythm and it was just a nice gallop the whole way and I think that’s what made him come into the race really well. “It’s good to get another winner for Weiry and the team, so I couldn’t be happier.” Gallant runner-up, Call It A Day, is likely to back-up into a 2000m race at Flemington on Saturday 10 November, according to trainer Wez Hunter. Hunter said he thought his gelding was very tough, after having a hard run out in front. “I thought he was very brave,” he said. “Ideally we would have wanted a softer lead but he stuck on bravely and I thought he did well.” “He licked out the bin this morning (Monday), and even though he hasn’t raced over 2000m, I think he’ll run it out strongly. “He’ll be hard fit having had 11 starts this preparation and he’s racing very well.” Gun Sydney-based jockey, Tommy Berry, is likely to stay aboard Call It A Day when he heads to Flemington. Overall, the Mornington-based trainers had a relatively successful day at the feature race meeting with the Tony Noonan-trained Raven’s Blaze (Race 3) and the Chris Meagher-trained Born Bad (Race 2) both saluting earlier in the day. The Tony Noonan-trained mare, Raven’s Blaze, was one of the most dominant winners on the card, scoring a comfortable 3.25-length victory to

break her maiden first-up. Following the victory, Noonan said he’ll give the mare another run in two to three weeks’ time before looking towards the autumn for softer tracks. The Chris Meagher-trained gelding,

Born Bad, was also a strong maiden winner at his second career start. The win landed apprentice jockey, Jessica Eaton, her first victory at Mornington for her master trainer, Chris Meagher.

Mitchell bullish, Pen Boxing take three-pronged attack By Ben Triandafillou SEVERAL top boxers from the Mornington Peninsula will be out to finish the year off with a bang when they line-up at the Melbourne Pavilion on Friday 14 December. WBC top-10 ranked fighter, Jayde Mitchell, headlines the card and will face the well-travelled Danish boxer, Kim Poulsen, in the main event. Mitchell will be looking to end his 2018 campaign with a regional title defence following his clear-cut victory over power-puncher Kerry Foley on Friday 7 September. While Mitchell understands that Poulsen is a highly experienced fighter with a record of 28 wins and four losses, he is still supremely confident heading into the night. “I watched footage of him, he’s a well-skilled fighter but I have to put a really good show on if I’m serious about going to bigger and better things,” he said. “He’s well-travelled and fought across the world. I’m expecting him to be in good shape, and even though he has come to fight, he won’t be getting the win.” Poulsen, who was fighting in the welterweight division just a couple of years ago, has returned in the supermiddleweight class in which Mitchell believes he has no right to be in. “I’m not looking past him, I’m looking through him,” he said. “He’s got no business being in my weight division. It’ll be a seek-anddestroy mission to finish the year off with a bang.” Mitchell has big plans ahead for next year and is hoping to end this campaign on a high. “Hopefully we can go from this to one of the biggest domestic fights in

March next year against Zac Dunn,” he said. “It’s going to be an exciting year next year and the offers are really starting to come in now.” Also lining-up on the card is professional boxer, Kane Watts, who has been training alongside Mitchell and his father, Len Mitchell. Watts will be aiming to claim the WBA Oceania title and search for a spot in the top-15 world ratings. Peninsula Boxing will also have a few fighters on the undercard with the likes of Jason Whateley, Jai Alexander and Lochie Higgins all set to step into the ring. Whateley, who is coming off a professional debut victory, will be lining up for his second fight at the

elite level. Peninsula Boxing head coach Marcos Amado believes that Whateley will most likely need to fight an opponent “above and beyond”, with competitors being so hard to find. “No one wants to be in the ring against him,” Amado said. “We’re not looking past this fight but it’s going to be the first belt and the first step towards bigger and better things.” Jai Alexander will likely have a similar problem when finding opponents, having had just the two fights for the year. “He’s also been very difficult to get a fight for but we’ll probably know a bit better with whom they’re up against in the last two to three weeks

before the night,” Amado said. Finally, Higgins will be going up a weight division into the super-middleweight class for the first time. Amado said they’ll be playing it slightly more cautious when coming up against some bigger and heavier hitters as they go from the 72kg to the 76kg of the super-middleweight class. This will be the fighters final hitout for the year and Amado said he

couldn’t be happier with their preparation heading into it. “Everyone’s put in a really solid camp,” he said. “After that we’ll probably have four weeks off and start getting back into things again in the second week of January.” Tickets for the night can be purchased through the boxers.

Baseballer relishes ‘experience of a life-time’

Road to victory: Mornington Cycling Club members get set to compete in their season’s highlight, the MCC Road Club Championships. Picture: Supplied

Road cyclists compete for club championships By Ben Triandafillou MORNINGTON Cycling Club will host their season’s highlight, the MCC Road Club Championships, in Main Ridge on Saturday 10 November. The sixth annual Road Club Championships concludes a tremendous year for the club with the first event set to kick off at 8:00am. Mornington Cycling Club president Bruce Trew said that the championships are the biggest event of the year for the club. “We’re only a small club but it’s the end of year event where everyone comes together and we crown the best cyclist for the year,” Trew said. “It holds the most prestige of the events we hold throughout the year and honours the best and strongest riders at the club. It gives the top riders a chance to add their name to history.” The championship events are run in age group brackets which include the under-19s, Elite Men

(open age), Women (open age), Masters (under50s), Super Masters (over-50s) and the Legends categories (over-60s). The event also caters for juniors with a one to two lap support ride also held on the day. The under-19s Joel Hawkins Scholarship, named in honour of one of the brightest riders on the Peninsula who tragically died in a cycling accident three years ago, will also be awarded on the day. The scholarship offers an up-and-coming talent support for their road cycling development over a 12 month period as a racing member of MCC. It also provides a full package of coaching, physical therapy, bike servicing, MCC membership and kit. To ride in the event you need to be a member of the Mornington Cycling Club. If you’re interested in joining the MCC visit:

BASEBALL pitcher Jackson Boyd, of Langwarrin, returned to Florida after representing Australia in the under-23s Baseball World Cup in Colombia on Sunday 28 October. The now 19-year-old, having had his birthday while competing in the World Cup, joined an Australian contingent of 24 players and competed against 12 international teams at the competition. The Australian team finished in ninth place overall, but Boyd said he still had an exceptional time representing his country. “The World Cup this year was an experience of a lifetime,” he said. “To be able to travel to that part of the world and do what I love is a blessing. To play at such a high level and compete was an amazing experience.” Boyd said he enjoyed the trip over to Colombia but the key to the great experience was competing at the World Cup with people he now knows so well. “Nothing beats the feeling of being able to wear your country on your chest with guys you played with and against ever since I was 12-years-old.” The Australia team was placed in Group B and faced five international teams being Korea, Puerto Rico, Venezuela, the Dominican Republic, and the Czech Republic in the group stage. Australia were defeated two to four by Venezuela in the opening round, before hitting back with a five to three victory over the Czech Republic in the second round. Australia then scored a narrow victory over the Dominican Republic, three to four, in the third round. Korea were ruthless in the fourth round and defeated the Australian side by seven runs, 14 to seven, before Australia finished the group stage with a narrow three to two loss against Puerto Rico. In the consolation rounds, Australia faced host-nation Colombia where they were defeated by 13 runs with a final score of five to 18. Australia ended the competition on a high scoring two dominant victories over the Netherlands (16-3) and South Africa (4-9). Boyd, who is studying sports science at North West Florida College and following his passion for baseball, will now stay in Florida until Christmas before making a trip back home.

McGill’s Choice can’t be caught By Ben Triandafillou MORNINGTON-based trainer, Logan McGill, has a seriously quick horse on his hands. The four-year-old son of Written Tycoon, Written Choice, made it back-to-back victories for the trainer on Friday 26 October, when he clocked the third fastest time of 54.77 seconds around the tight 955m Moonee Valley track. It made it three wins from four times that jockey, Stephen Baster, has taken a sit on him. Trainer Logan McGill said it was a fantastic feeling to see Written Choice overcome the wide barrier (10) and win the $120,000 sprint. “The other day when he won, he won a similar sort of race. It was expected of him to win that day but leading into this one there wasn’t as much expected because of the wide draw,” McGill said. “It was relief the start before but I was absolutely rapt to see him run such as sizzling time and win the race.” Written Choice led all-the-way at his most recent victory, narrowly defeating Essence of Terror and Pravro, a further two-lengths away in third. McGill said Written Choice is a “quirky sort

Bulls sign 1000 goal star By Brodie Cowburn KARINGAL Football Club have pulled off a huge coup by bringing former Cranbourne full-forward Marc Holt to the club. The signing is a huge deal for the Bulls, who were dumped from MPNFL Division Two finals this year in straight sets. The signing of Holt could prove the difference for the Bulls as they seek Division One promotion. The Bulls scored the least amount of points of all finals clubs in 2018, and will benefit from another avenue to goal. Holt made headlines at the end of this season when he booted his 1000th goal for the


Cranbourne Eagles. Cranbourne FC President Gerry Kelly had previously indicated he was hopeful that Holt would stay. The Eagles had their application to join the MPNFL rejected, and will now join the Yarra Ranges league. Between Marc Holt at Karingal and Brendan Fevola at his new club Hastings, there are sure to be plenty of goals kicked in Division 2 this season. Karingal will also kick off their 2019 campaign with a new coach at the helm. Brendan Dunne has been appointed.

of horse” who has had the tendency to miss the start, but the booking of jockey, Stephen Baster, has made a massive difference. “He missed the kick first-up last preparation so we knew we needed to sort out his barrier tendencies,” he said. “We approached Stephen [Baster] and he got to know him a bit. He gave him a trial at Mornington and worked him, and now they’ve meshed really well and haven’t taken a backwards step since.” Despite being a highly energetic stallion come race day, McGill said he’s a completely different animal back at home. “He’s a highly strung stallion who can tend to get himself wound up on race day but you couldn’t get a better mannered horse when he’s back at the stables,” he said. Following his fourth career victory from his eight starts, McGill has pointed out that Written Choice will now be heading towards the Listed Absolut Stakes (1000m) down the straight at Flemington on Thursday 8 November. “He deserves his chance in a race like that,” he said. “It looks like the next logical step.”
