Family night out: Sophie, 8, and Charlotte, 4, with mum Kate Wills, a teacher at Sorrento Primary School, were among the many people who raised money for the homeless by sleeping in their cars on Saturday night at Mornington Park. Picture: Supplied

Cold snap unites park sleepers SATURDAY night’s Sleep in Your Car event at Mornington Park raised $22,100 and “still counting”, organisers said yesterday (Monday). “Event’s like that truly take a community effort and, just as Dorothy didn’t journey alone in the Wizard of Oz, we couldn’t have done it without the community,” Fusion’s Emma Woodcock said. “The synergy of the event was great, and the community spirit was high despite the wet weather. But the bad weather drove us to truly appreciate the point of what we were raising money for - the vulnerable young people experiencing homelessness. “They don’t get to hide out from the bad weather or return home if it gets too cold. The weather actually served to unite us in passion and purpose in building community and offering hope in our neighbourhoods.”

Public may decide ulcer study’s future Keith Platt keith@mpnews.com.au THE future course of a Mornington Peninsula-based study into the causes of the flesh-eating Buruli ulcer could depend on the outcome of a public meeting next Saturday. Organisers are hoping for “a reasonably civilised event” to fully explain the Buruli study so “concerned groups and individuals can decide where to

M. & A. EGAN Licensed Plumber & Gasfitter

take it from there”. In a letter to the mayor Cr David Gill last week, Flinders MP and Health Minister Greg Hunt said Mornington Peninsula Shire had “total control” over “mosquito control activities” and “a broader public health responsibility to its residents to ensure that all necessary actions are being taken to address the occurrence of Buruli ulcer”. Cr Gill on Sunday expressed surprise that the shire had control over the study – which he has criticised as

in Rye have already been sprayed with chemicals to kill mosquitoes (“Ulcer study ‘now a trial’ – mayor” The News 31/7/19). News that the spraying had taken place in March surprised shire councillors and angered members of the public who were already voicing their concerns over the environmental effects of the proposed spraying. More than 15,000 signatures have been added to an online petition opposed to the use of chemicals. Continued Page 9

Saturday’s forum at Rye civic hall has been organised by Paul Saunders, Kelvin Stingle and Roslyn Browning, all members of the peninsula branch of The Greens. Mr Saunders said the forum was not a “Greens event” but was being held because many residents were concerned about the spread of the ulcer and the methods proposed to research and control it. The forum comes in the wake of revelations that properties in three streets

being a trial because of the chemical sprayings – noting that just one shire officer was involved, mainly attending meetings with the research scientists. In his letter (which The News has seen) Mr Hunt also describes the shire as a “cornerstone partner” in the study being conducted by the Victorian Department of Health and Human Services, the Doherty Institute, Barwon Health, Austin Health, the CSIRO, Agriculture Victoria and the University of Melbourne.

NEWS DESK History feedback RESIDENTS have been invited to comment on Mornington Peninsula Shire’s draft local history development plan, which is on display until Monday 19 August. History includes stories and memories, many preserved and retained by historical societies, museums, landmarks and buildings. The draft plan aims to preserve the peninsula’s history and develop such opportunities as heritage tourism. This encourages people to visit places, see artefacts and partake in activities that authentically represent the stories and people of the past. A key element of the plan is to create better online access to the peninsula’s history by digitising and cataloguing information to be published on a new dedicated local history website. Provide feedback online at mornpen.vic.gov.au/haveyoursay or pick up a hard copy at a customer service office.

Surf Mermaid

Garden and rural setting for top design A “UNDERSTATED and simplistic” house in rural Dromana has been awarded the building design of the Year. Moat’s Corner was praised by the judges for its understated and simplistic design as well as its emphasis on ensuring views of the manicured gardens and natural vegetation can be seen from every angle. Results of the annual Building Design Awards - formerly known as the Building Designers Association of Victoria (BDAV) Building Design Awards - were announced on Saturday

27 July at the National Gallery of Victoria. Designed by the Vibe Design Group, Moat's Corner is described as acting as a centrepiece within two hectares of manicured gardens on the 21.4ha property at the corner of White Hill and Dunns Creek roads. The house has “clean lines, a soft colour palette, and natural materials”. Award judges said they were impressed by the “understated simplicity of the design and its innovative use of space and superior finishes”. "Moat's Corner is an outstanding

example of how thoughtful design can create a visually bold result, while crafting a functional home for a growing family,” panel member Ingrid Hornung said. "Its elevated structure and floorto-ceiling windows offer exceptional views of the natural surrounds; it is a sleek and contemporary home, built to last." Vibe’s lead designer Michael O'Sullivan said the home's slim line roof, raised floor and entry on the west side offered a “transparent and pic-

turesque outlook of the pool and surrounding gardens from every angle”. "The site's gardens are close to 100 years old, so it was important our design embraced the views and brought these into the home,” he said. "The design for Moat's Corner is all about bringing a sense of ease and effortlessness - that modernist ethos - which we believe can change how people live, and that's what we are all about." All of the 2019 Building Design Award winners are at designmatters. org.au Keith Platt

A CHARITY screening of the film Surf Mermaid will be shown at Sorrento Cinemas, Friday 16 August.

It tells the inspirational story of how she overcame adversity to create a legacy. Directed by Charlotte Rowson the fully licensed and catered event opens at 6pm for a 7pm screening with question-andanswer session afterwards. It is being presented by Steve Bastoni. Tickets at Eventbrite.

Councillors clear to share their opinions Keith Platt keith@mpnews.com.au ALTHOUGH the mayor is Mornington Peninsula Shire’s “lead spokesperson”, councillors have been cleared to “express their own independent views” in the media. The new media policy adopted by councillors earlier this year came nearly two years after they rejected moves by senior management to limit the release of information about the shire to three people, the mayor, CEO and the media and events manager (“Revolt over shire ‘muzzle’

bid” The News 19/6/19). The CEO at that time, Carl Cowie and the media and events manager, Mark Kestigian, are no longer with the shire. The media policy now followed by the shire allows councillors to air their views, but cautions that they “make it clear that any unofficial comment … may not represent the position of council as a whole”. Councillors are also asked to tell the mayor and shire communications department of any comments made to the media “to ensure the team are across specific and/or developing issues”. The policy acknowledges that the media is

entitled to “receive all information that is public information”. The communications team will seek approval for comments attributed to individual councillors before news releases are distributed to the media. The media policy says the turn around time for requests by the media for comment or information should be 24 hours “or sooner if possible”. When the previous media suggested policy was dropped in June 2017, the then mayor Cr Bev Colomb described it as “a very early mockup and [councillors] decided they wanted to create a media and communications policy from

the ground up”. The then deputy mayor Cr Bryan Payne said the proposed media policy “treated councillors as employees” and failed to give them the “respect” deserved by elected representatives. He said the proposed policy inhibited the ability of the mayor Cr Colomb to speak with the media without first approaching communications manager Mr Kestigian or CEO Carl Cowie. Cr Payne said the shire’s public relations at that time was being handled “extremely poorly”. “And you don’t do it by handcuffing your [elected] people.”

WHAT’S NEW...

Village Glen completes their continuum of care AT Village Glen, we pride ourselves on providing the highest standard of care in every facet of our business; retirement living, aged care and home care. We aim to give older people the full suite of care services to suit them at whatever stage of the journey they are at. Village Glen recognised there was one piece of their care puzzle missing. Village Glen is completing their continuum of care model in 2019. They are doing this by becoming a provider of ‘Short Term Restorative Care’ packages (STRC). In simplistic terms these are rehabilitation services for our elderly. These packages assigned by the Government, allow Village Glen to provide another level of care to residents of the Mornington Peninsula. The rehabilitation program is an 8-week journey of intensive care, love and support to an elderly person. The objective is to target people who are experiencing functional decline and assist them in getting back on their feet and staying in their own home. Basically, if you aren’t feeling your normal self or lacking energy and strength, been unwell and daily tasks are harder than they should be, a STRC package could be for you. The list of services you can have on a STRC package is almost endless, but to name a few include physiotherapy, occupational therapy, nursing care, assistance with shopping, help with showering, meal preparation and dietary advice. The list goes on. The best part about these services is that the Village Glen team already have the staff trained and ready to go as all these services are already

offered under the aged care and home care arm of the business. This is just another way for Village Glen to provide tailored, specialised care to clients. Someone you know may have had an illness or is struggling more than normal and would benefit from the Village Glen team providing a lengthy list of allied health services either in their own home or during a rehabilitation stay in one of our Aged Care Residences, the choice is yours! The STRC programme focuses on rehabilitation through wellness, reablement and restorative approaches to care. The aim of these new packages is to reverse any decline an older person may be experiencing and get them back on track, assisting people in staying in their own homes for longer, living the life they love. Peter Nilsson as the Chief Operations Officer for Village Glen explains “Village Glen recognised a gap in its care model and has worked very hard to develop the STRC programme to provide a new level of care to clients, which we will be doing from July 1 2019” Village Glen is proud to be one of the few providers offering these Government funded rehabilitation services on the Mornington Peninsula. To find out the steps to receiving a STRC package, please call Village Glen today who will walk you through the process and assist along the way.

Leading the way in aged care on the Peninsula Village Glen Aged Care Residences provide residents and their family the peace of mind that there is support along this journey. Our team can answer all your questions about the aged care process as we know it can be complicated. You simply need to tell us what we can do to assist you. The Village Glen difference extends into our offerings to our residents. While we have a beautiful facility with stunning bay views, we also offer residents in-house physiotherapy, a lifestyle program run by diversional therapists and of course a team of executive chefs creating tempting delights. Plus, there’s security of having the highest level of nursing care including our memory support unit with a very special sensory garden.

Farm ‘motel’ for foreign workers Keith Platt keith@mpnews.com.au A farm at Boneo has been given permission to build motel type accommodation for foreign farm workers. The workers will come to Australia under the federal government’s seasonal worker program. Mornington Peninsula Shire councillors have been told that it is hard to find workers locally and that allowing workers from overseas will “further underpin” the viability of the land for agriculture. The development approved by shire in May includes eight units with a total of 32 bedrooms, a common study, laundry and amenities block with a kitchen and entertainment area. A condition of the permit is that the buildings cannot be used as permanent accommodation, private letting or holiday accommodation. The beige coloured buildings will be set back 40 metres from Limestone Road and 55 metres from Boneo Road. Although flood prone, the shire’s building department had approved the site. Despite 11 objections to the plan, shire officers saw it as being “an appropriate response” for use of the green wedge zoned land. The 65.4-hectare farm near Boneo Primary School is used to grow celery, cos lettuce, Asian vegetables, broccoli and iceberg lettuce. In a report to councillors, planning services team leader Lucas Gardiner said allowing the building on the farm “also offers the potential to facilitate cross-border and inter-regional relationships to harness emerging economic opportuni-

ties by providing overseas workers with temporary accommodation and employment”. He said the farm “represents a key component of both the wider green wedge purpose and more local characteristic of Boneo sought to be maintained”. “Furthermore, the purpose of the approval sought within the application is to provide accommodation for seasonal workers that will only further underpin the long-term viability and productivity of the existing agricultural operation and preserve the important rural character,” Mr Gardiner said. “The proposal therefore represents an innovative response to staff shortages relevant to agricultural and land management practices which … strengthen the productivity of the existing crop raising operation while harnessing emerging economic opportunities.” Mr Gardiner said the site for the buildings (“temporary, moveable structures”) was “ideal” and “well set back” from neighbouring properties and screened by existing hedges.

January scavenge THE 2020 Rye Seaside Scavenge will be on Sunday 12 January. Committee members are Iris O’Hara, Josie Jones, this year’s leader Sacha Guggenheimer and Rye Community Group Alliance’s Mechelle Cheers. “Last year we were able to run a fabulous educational and fun clean-up, in addition to collecting valuable litter data that was presented to the Mornington Peninsula Shire,” Ms O’Hara said.

Students look at life’s big picture They also collected coats to donate to peninsula charities, footy cards to send to students at schools in remote communities in the Northern Territory and bottle caps to donate to Envision’s Helping Hands program. After recess the students hosted a movie and popcorn afternoon and collected gold coin donations. “It has been wonderful to see such high levels of student engagement, collaboration and community support,” Ms Wills said. Antipodes Book Shop, Scicluna’s Sorrento and St Ernest Blairgowrie donated vouchers and produce.”

SORRENTO Primary School grades 1and 2 students are taking note of the wider world. Teacher Kate Wills said as part of their Design Thinking unit the students identified homelessness as a problem that they would like to help solve, and set about coming up with ideas. This followed a visit by Miranda Gillespie of the Southern Peninsula Community Support and Information Centre who spoke about homelessness and the services it provides. After much “brainstorming” the students held a Helping Festival last Friday which included a market morning where they sold books, food and held a raffle, Ms Wills said.

New rules and costs for pools NEW regulations being introduced in December mean backyard pool and spa owners must pay $37 registration fees to Mornington Peninsula Shire Council. The shire says it knows of about 17,000 combined pools and spas on the peninsula – the most of any municipality in Victoria. Under the state-wide rules, owners must shell out $20 for compliance certificates from qualified surveyors and arrange three-yearly inspections of pool fences and safety barriers. Fines of up to $330 will be levied if pools are found to not comply. Owners will have 20 days to fix safety issues. The deadline for registrations is 14 April next year. The tougher rules come after a recent survey by the Victorian Municipal Building Surveyors’ Group found that

up to 90 per cent of pools breached safety rules. The state coroner also recommended a harder line on pool safety regulations after investigating several drowning cases. Drowning is the biggest cause of death among young people, with 27 children drowning in private pools and spas over the past 20 years. Many more carry lifelong learning and behavioural impairments. Planning and building director David Bergin said the shire would be making a submission to the state government about the pool and spa regulations. “Once regulations are finalised, we will be contacting all peninsula residents to advise of the new pool and spa barrier regulations,” he said.

Talk about housing over soup A SOUP kitchen to aid those “doing it tough” will be held tonight (Wednesday 7 August) at Capel Sound. It is being put on by Mornington Peninsula Housing Network and the Salvation Army Corp Rosebud. The event aims to “raise awareness and share stories of the challenges that people experiencing homelessness face”. Those attending are invited to share

their stories about housing loss and then share in a selection of hearty homemade soups, desserts, tea and coffee. An auction and panel of speakers will follow. The soup kitchen opens at 5.45pm at SalvoCare Eastern, corner Melaleuca Avenue and Eastbourne Road, Capel Sound. Gold coin donation. Details: 5986 0000.

Crowd against plastic straws A MORNINGTON Peninsula based social enterprise is on a mission to replace single-use plastic straws with reusable, ethically-sourced bamboo straws. Co-founders of theotherstraw Jamie-Lee Kay and Lennart Meijer, pictured, say most of the 10 million plastic straws used every day end up in landfill, Port Phillip and waterways, polluting the environment and jeopardising marine health. “We founded theotherstraw because we were shocked by the amount of plastic waste on the peninsula’s beaches, parks and just about everywhere else – we knew we had to do something about it,” Mr Meijer said.

You’ll love what we do

So far 10 retailers on the peninsula are selling their reusable bamboo straws as well as 80 retailers and venues across Australia and in Japan. “The past few months have been huge for us,” Ms Kay said. “We’ve collaborated with the Urban List, Pip Magazine, CAPI, Christmas Island Tourism Association, the Great Barrier Reef Aquarium, SPARK Deakin and many more other businesses who are making sustainable commitments.” The business has been selected by ING Bank as one of eight social enterprises in its Dreamstarter program. As part of the program the pair ran a crowdfunding campaign which from 18 June to 17 July.

“Our tipping point was $10,000, which we exceeded in the third week of our campaign” Ms Kay said. “ING gave us $5000 and we crowdfunded more than $7000 via the public.” The pair see a better future in their new range called ‘theotheressentials’ which will replace single-use plastic items such as cutlery and bowls with reusable, sustainable alternatives. All contributions from their crowdfunding campaign will go towards producing this new range.

Call to reclassify peninsula Keith Platt keith@mpnews.com.au LEADERS of the newly formed business-backed Committee for Mornington Peninsula have told the state Opposition that the peninsula should be recognised by governments as “regional” rather than “metropolitan”. Opposition leader Michael O’Brien and members of the shadow cabinet meeting at Rosebud last week were told that classing the peninsula as metropolitan was hurting business, causing job shortages and lost government grants. The committee was launched in March and now has 50 members (“Business behind new lobby group” The News 10/4/19). Its president, former Liberal federal government MP for Dunkley, Bruce Billson, said the committee would pay for research to examine the “fors and againsts” of the peninsula being re-classified regional, “compared to pursuing the levels of services and support expected by a metropolitan community and what can realistically be achieved”. He hoped Mornington Peninsula Shire would contribute towards the cost of the “regional designation research project”. “We keep hearing time and time again that local employment, access to education and services and the opportunity for local businesses to compete, is being hindered by the peninsula being lumped in with Melbourne”, Mr Billson said. “Local businesses pay twice the rate DECKING T/Pine 70x22 KD ACQ ........................... $2.70mt T/Pine 90x22 KD ACQ ........................... $3.50mt T/Pine 140x22 KD ACQ ......................... $6.25mt Merbau 70x19 Random ........................ $4.75mt Merbau 90x19 Random ........................ $6.50mt Merbau 140x22 Random .................... $13.95mt

ART historian Leslie Primo will explore how did artists who were not British have an impact on the art scene in London and their motivations at the August meeting of the Mornington Peninsula Australian Decorative and Fine Arts Society, Friday 9 August. Primo, pictured, who has a Masters of Arts in Renaissance Studies from Birkbeck, University College, London, has also worked at the National Gallery, London since 2000 and The Arts society since 2009. He has also taught courses at the Courtauld Institute. In his talk Primo will examine the contributions of artists such as Hans Holbein the younger, Isaac Oliver, Paulus van Somer, Anthony van Dyck, and many others, tracing foreign artists from the Tudor period through to the Renaissance and Baroque and assessing their legacy on British art. ADFAS lectures are held at the Peninsula Community Theatre, Wilsons Road, Mornington, at 5.30pm on Friday evenings. Booking secretary Glad Hungerford 97872092 will reserve a seat for first-time visitors at no cost.

NEWS DESK Police patrol

With Stephen Taylor

Under guard after alleged ramming A MAN who allegedly twice rammed police patrol cars spent the night under guard in Frankston Hospital before fronting Frankston Magistrates’ Court last week. Police cornered the 21-year-old around 1.30am, Thursday 1 August, in a Moorooduc Highway service road near Humphries Road, Frankston South. They said he deliberately reversed the stolen car he was driving into them and attempted to run off but was caught after a brief chase. Police searched the vehicle and allegedly found a quantity of knives and stolen number plates. They said the man had earlier rammed a police car in Frankston South and attempted to ram two others in Mornington and Hastings earlier in the night. No police were injured in the incidents. The man, of no fixed address, was interviewed by Frankston CIU detectives on Thursday morning and on Friday was sent to Melbourne Magistrates’ Court for a filing hearing. He is facing 25 charges – most relating to the alleged ramming incidents – as well as theft of a car, three of theft from cars, unlicensed driving, reckless conduct endangering life, dangerous driving, possessing methyl-amphetamine, resisting arrest, breaching bail, intentionally ramming police, and dangerous driving.

Fatal at Tyabb A MAN who died when his car left the road and crashed into a tree at Tyabb, Thursday 24 July, was in the process of moving into a new house at Hastings. The man, in his 70s, was travelling along Frankston-Flinders Road about 2.30pm when he lost control of the car he had bought only an hour before.

The man’s wife, who was following a few cars behind, reportedly did not see the incident, 200-metres south of the entrance to Padua College. Acting Sergeant Anthony Deason, of Somerville Highway Patrol, said police at the scene comforted the woman while relatives made their way from Brighton. Emergency services were unable to save the man. Frankston-Flinders Road was closed between the Padua College entrance and the Western Port Highway for several hours, with parents on school pick-up having to come from the Tyabb township side.

Mother terrified A TERRIFIED mother and two young children were confronted by a man and a woman brandishing an axe and a cricket bat inside their Berry Court, Mornington, home, Thursday 25 July. Jewellery and other items were stolen in the 7.20pm incident. Detectives later arrested a man, 18, at another location. He was charged with aggravated burglary and remanded to appear vat court at later date. The woman has not been found.

Not talking A ROSEBUD man is “not cooperating” with police after presenting at Rosebud Hospital with stab wounds, 2.50am, Saturday 27 July. Detective Senior Sergeant Al Paxton, of Somerville CIU, said the man, 28, was taken by ambulance to The Alfred hospital with serious injuries. He is said to be in a stable condition. It is not known where or how the incident occurred.

Alarm alert A MT ELIZA man alerted by a silent alarm was able to watch on his phone from another location as two men wearing balaclavas tried to force the front door of his house, 5.33am, Saturday 27 July. Detective Senior Sergeant Al Paxton, of Somerville CIU, said the man called police who rushed to the Fulton Road house as the men sped off towards Nepean Highway in a grey 2000 Ford sedan. They were not able to apprehend them. Police canvassed houses in the street and found a neighbour had been robbed of cash and jewellery, another neighbour’s garage had been broken into and alcohol stolen and two cars opened and searched in the driveway next door. Anyone with information about these crimes is urged to call Crime Stoppers 1800 333 000.

Reset safety values POLICE Operation Reset held over the weekend was aimed at encouraging drivers on the Mornington Peninsula to reset their attitudes towards road safety. Southern Metro Region Acting Commander Tony Silva said Operation Reset provided a “highly visible presence of police with a particular focus on known road trauma locations”. “We are incredibly saddened by how many lives have already been lost in Victoria’s south east this year, with 24 people not returning home to their families.” This is double the number of lives lost at this time last year. Acting Commander Silva said: “We are seeing reckless speed, failure to give way and impaired driving as they key contributing factors to fatal

collisions in the south east. “Not arriving at your destination isn’t worth the five minutes you gain from speeding or not driving to the conditions.” Police made sure they had a visible presence on the highways, backstreets and off-road locations to ensure motorists thought twice about their behaviour. “Every time a motorist sees police on the road it is a reminder to follow the road rules.”

Not wasting time THE female partner of a man who blew more than three times the legal limit blasted police for “wasting our time”. Somerville Highway Patrol members pulled over the 51-year-old Skye man in McClelland Drive, 9.15pm, Wednesday 31 July. After blowing positive he was asked to return to Carrum Downs police station for an evidential breath test. There the woman “became abusive towards the testing officer, setting a poor example for the young teenage girl in the back seat”, Senior Constable Greg Wolfe said. The man blew 0.159 per cent – or more than three times the limit – and had his licence immediately suspended. When they were leaving the station the woman “again started swearing and abusing the processing officer in the company of the teenage girl”. Senior Constable Wolfe said her philosophy “appeared to be that police were wasting their time doing this to them, and should be out catching criminals instead”. “The officer rightly pointed out that the highway patrol was specifically tasked to reduce road trauma, and that removing her drunk driver from the road was helping do just that.” The man’s new company car with only 300 kilometres on the speedo was impounded. He will be summonsed to appear at Frankston Magistrates’ Court at a later date.

Rail line to go under road THE state government has announced the removal of three level crossings on the Frankston line has been brought forward, with works now touted to be completed by 2022. Works to remove level crossings at Edithvale Road, Thames Promenade, and Argyle Avenue would finish by 2022. The works will send the rail under road. The Frankston line will be lowered into a trench at those three locations, rather than raised above ground with elevated rail like in neighbouring suburbs. “Creating a more direct road network will enable level crossings at Swanpool Avenue and Chelsea Road in Chelsea to be closed. Lochiel

WINTER IS HERE

Avenue in Edithvale will also close once works are complete. These changes will remove the current congestion hot spots caused by boom gates and the dangerous dogleg at Chelsea Road,” the Premier Daniel Andrews said. “The boom gate free intersections along the Nepean will be upgraded with turning lanes, so there is more green time for motorists, improving traffic flow, getting traffic off roads to provide more reliable journey times.” Plans for a new look Carrum Station were also revealed. The station has now been bulldozed, and is not set to reopen until 2020. A temporary rail track has been installed at Carrum station.

Questions over mosquito study Continued from Page 1 Another round of chemical spraying is due in October. The August e-news from the Southern Peninsula Indigenous Flora & Fauna Association criticises the use of chemicals to control mosquitoes in the face of “ample evidence” that Buruli ulcers stem from lesions and scratches “in fact, anything but mosquito bites in the original Bairnsdale studies”. “There are political considerations and health ministers and others appear to want to be seen as doing something, even if it's scientifically and environmentally unsound,” the SPIFFA article states. Saturday’s forum may also provide a platform for a showdown between Cr Gill and Mr Hunt. Cr Gill has questioned Mr Hunt’s oversight of $1.5 million of taxpayers’ money provided to the Buruli study, while Mr Hunt has hit back, saying the shire knew all about the study and should consult “with the community in the near future to outline [its] plans within this research project and any impacts on the local community”. Mr Hunt provided “numerous statements” to

Improve the look, comfort and energy efficiency of your home

Cr Gill to show “this has been the shire’s project from the outset”. Cr Gill said while the Buruli ulcer was a major health issue “the solving of one problem should not lead to other possible health problems for residents and the environment”. “The widespread spraying of insects and the possible effect on birds and fish is a major environmental concern to residents,” Cr Gill said. “Council has not made a decision on a spraying and eradication project on public or private land. “If council were to undertake such an action it would seek public consultation after an evidencebased assessment, including the effect on people’s health and the environmental impact.” The public forum to discuss ways of controlling the spread of the Buruli ulcer will be held 2-4pm this Saturday (10 August) at Rye civic hall. Expected to speak at the forum are Flinders MP Greg Hunt, Mornington Peninsula Shire mayor Cr David Gill, Nepean MP Chris Brayne, beekeeper Simon Mulvaney, scientists involved in the Buruli ulcer study, the Southern Peninsula Indigenous Flora & Fauna Association and ulcer sufferers.

New deal to save recycling from tip SOLO Resource Recovery has been hired to collect Mornington Peninsula Shire’s household recycled waste. The new contract means recyclable waste collected for the shire will not go to landfill. The change comes after discredited former contractor SKM put a sudden stop on all incoming material late last week. The company was wound up by the Supreme Court last Friday (2 August). The signing with Solo means there will be no disruption to kerbside collections. The shire and 30 other municipalities was told on Thursday night 25 July that SKM would “cease accepting recyclable material effective immediately”. The mayor Cr David Gill described the shutdown as “devastating”. He said the council had “worked quickly to enact plans to engage a new provider”. Collected recyclable material started going to Solo the following Monday. “Council has been proactive in working with

the industry to source an alternate provider and minimise the impact to our community and the peninsula’s precious environment,” Cr Gill said. “We were prepared and have been able to contain the damage to just one day’s worth of collections [whereas] many other councils will be forced to landfill tonnes of recyclables.” In a slap at the state government, he said: “Advanced warning from the state government that further compliance matters at SKM were being addressed would have allowed us and other councils to minimise the environmental impact by bringing forward contingency plans for a potential shut down. “The state government has again failed to support our community by ensuring that the landfill levy [estimated at $500,000] collected from all tip users is used to fix this environmental crisis. “Now it’s more important than ever to recycle right and reduce the amount of waste we produce.” Stephen Taylor

ON THE COVER

ARCHITECT DESIGNED FOR THE BEST OF A PENINSULA LIFESTYLE A JEWEL in the Safety Beach landscape, this luxurious home combines premium privacy with a broad, all encompassing view across the Esplanade and foreshore to Port Phillip Bay. Custom designed to maximise waterside living whilst at the same time drawing on the delights on the peninsula hinterland with outlooks to both via feature windows, this idyllic home, or amazing holiday escape, is well set on a 783 square metre block behind a secure electronic gate. The ground floor begins with an excellent selection of doublesized bedrooms for family and guests. Three bedrooms all have built-in robes and share the downstairs bathroom and one of two powder rooms, whilst to the larger guest bedroom is a walk-through robe and ensuite with double vanity. A great games room opens out to the eye-catching outdoor entertaining area which has plumbed gas for the barbecue, a wood heater and an outdoor sink. The eight-metre, dual-zone pool and spa is solar and gas heated, and one more undercover merbau deck upstairs with downlights and glass balustrades completes the entertaining allure. The sensational first floor is awash with natural light courtesy of spectacular floor to ceiling windows and a clean crisp neutral colour scheme. The richly polished Jarrah timber floors provide a nice contrast and there are bold splashes of red with feature pendant lighting to the excellent kitchen; resplendent with striking stone bench tops and stainless steel appliances including a 900-millimetre stove with gas cooktop and rangehood. A huge lounge ensures space and comfort for all and the dining area is perfectly placed to enjoy the vista out on the bay. The staggering fifth bedroom also features an ensuite and walk-in robe. A host of modern appointments include ducted gas heating and evaporative cooling, there is a full alarm system and video intercom and a shared driveway leads up to a brilliant four-car garage with remote doors and internal entry.n

Spraying mosquitoes ‘just in case’ is ‘bonkers’ I’m sure the federal health department has gone completely mad, how else could one perceive the proposed blanked spraying of pesticides on parts of the Mornington Peninsula (“Ulcer study ‘now a trial’ - mayor” The News 31/7/19)? Has the chemical industry now taken over our public service? The proposal to spray large parts of the peninsula just in case it could help to prevent the spread of the Buruli ulcer is bonkers. Scientists are not even sure what the vector for this very serious condition is, but the health department decides to kill as many of our insect population as possible. The ecological impact on the whole flora and fauna of the southern peninsula is at stake here. As far as I’m concerned a proper education campaign of the population and the health professions would be of much greater benefit for the avoidance of this terrible condition. Every person presenting with a possible Buruli infection needs to be taken serious by doctors and other health workers and tested for the possibility of infection by this terrible (virus, bacteria), or whatever the cause is. Are we ignoring what happened when DDT was used for any and all prevention of diseases? We still find this compound in almost every living organism around the world. Rupert Steiner, Balnarring Beach

Bees or people I am amazed by Mornington Peninsula Shire mayor Cr David Gill wanting to stop, instead of welcoming and supporting, the long overdue study by renowned scientists and institutions to understand and combat the flesh-eating disease (“Mayor wants brakes put on mossie battlers” The News 24/7/19). What is his expertise on this subject? What is more important to him, some bees which are potentially affected but will recover, or the health of the people in his constituency and of visitors to the peninsula? Reiner Scheibe, Mornington

Parking a camel Mornington Peninsula Shire’s shire response did not even address the issue of having tourrorists pay their own way (“End of year result for parking study” The News 23/7/19). The mayor [Cr David Gill] says “there is no simple solution”, but no solution could be more simple and cost effective than my proposal that takes advantage of state of the art technology already available. And a fee for foreshore parking? What about all those who park on side streets or in shopping centre parking lots? The only “range of [parking] issues” we have is a tourrorist problem for 1.5 months and now want to spend mega dollars to find more parking for them. Where? Five-storey parking garages on the foreshore? Get rid of all green space and turn it into parking? Really, there is no space to implement a “parking strategy” just to solve a 1.5 month problem. It has been said that a camel is a horse de-

signed by committee. i think we can say with confidence that when the shire is finished with its “parking strategies” it will have designed a horse with four humps, six legs, the ears of an elephant, and the beak of a platypus, requiring 265.76 litres of water a day to survive. Joe Lenzo, Safety Beach

Power cut view As a resident of the Mt Martha Village community I find it abhorrent that one property owner can cause many of the Mt Martha shops and their employees to lose a day’s income/pay for the self-satisfaction of the aforesaid property owner. Also, several essential services such as doctors, dentists, physiotherapists and a veterinary surgeon had to turn away patients after being given very sort notice (“Power outage outrage” The News 30/7/19). I thought that it was the energy provider’s task to provide electricity, not take it away. We have contracts with these providers to supply electricity and, if they can’t, then they should provide either a back-up solution or compensation. To the best of my knowledge these businesses were told to get their own generators at their own cost. I, as a regular user of my local shopping precinct, had to make other arrangements due to the fact that as well as the shops being closed the Esplanade was also closed. Why was this all done? So the new resident could have views of the bay that were not compromised by the power lines. I am led to believe this is only to be used as a “holiday house”. Surely the shops and their employees affected are due for compensation from the landowner or the electricity supplier? My other concerns are the removal of the footpath in Dominion Road and the state of what is left of the footpath on the Esplanade. These issues have been with us for more than a year and the Mornington Peninsula Shire has done absolutely nothing. I also wonder what will happen should the native vegetation where the power lines were removed should grow to a height that causes this person’s view to be compromised. Terry Langley, Mt Martha

A matter of taste It is a pity that this developer did not join other millionaires and build his family dream home on the cliff tops of Portsea where he would have enjoyed uninterrupted views of the bay without the need to move a lamppost impeding his view from Mt Martha (“Power outage outrage” The News 30/7/19). We would not then have had our shopping village, local businesses and nearby residents inconvenienced for the day. We would also not have a building so out of character in its location, dwarfing and detracting from the heritage listed “Green Gables”. There is money and there is good taste, unfortunately the two do not necessarily go hand in hand. Beverley Treloar Mt Martha

Recognising democracy Mornington Peninsula Shire Council at its meeting on 23 July discontinued special charge schemes which in surveys received no votes of 65 per cent and 75 per cent. In 2015, 89 per cent of Coppin Road, Sorrento property owners petitioned against a special charge scheme to have a footpath installed on their street. It appears that it has taken our council more than four years to recognise that democracy matters. Bill Holmes, Sorrento

Salute warbird How many times do I have to repeat myself in regard to the Chalke’s tiresome claims about the Peninsula Aero Club/Tyabb airfield issues (“Family ties to Tyabb” Letters 23/7/19)? Most of the aircraft based there are not controlled by PAC. Apart from an initial agreement between the PAC and each of their owners that allows them to be based and flown there and charges levied by it, they are free to be used as their owners wish. As for I am living in Mornington to avoid aircraft noise is not only absurdly wrong but insulting. There are many reasons one chooses to live in a particular place and in my case none of them have anything to do with aircraft noise. As for Mornington being free of it, nothing could be further from the truth. The township is within the Tyabb flying training area boundaries and is frequently overflown by all kinds of aircraft. The Chalkes also gripe about the Tyabb warbirds, obviously aimed at the Mustang. When it was restored, it was painted in the colours of a Mustang flown by one of the great heroes of the RAAF during WWII, Squadron Leader Murray Nash, some of whose family reside locally. Its engine, the famous Rolls Royce Merlin, also powered some of the other great warplanes that helped secure victory in 1945, including the Spitfire and the Lancaster bomber. The next time they see it flying, instead of disparaging it, the Chalkes should salute and thank

God it was there when it mattered, because it helped secure the peace we have all enjoyed for the last 74 years, and the obviously nice lifestyle they now have. As for my contention about the Lysaght runway, I saw drawings of it during my employment there during the 1970s. Cam Care, Mornington

Power politics What a great letter from Ann Renkin, six years of incarceration sounds like a sentence from hell (“Detention deterioration” Letters 23/7/19). Why, when boats are being intercepted all the time by our border patrols, is it seen as necessary to punish these refugees indefinitely? More like a display of power than of deterrence. Now the prime ministers of both New Zealand and Papua New Guinea are trying to have them released, it appears that acting like a bully is the prime reason for [Home Affairs Minister] Peter Dutton to exert his power. Six years is too many - release them now. As for the family from Bileola, send them home to Queensland now. Patricia Rayner, Capel Sound

Forgotten promises All (relatively) quiet here on our once fabulous Mornington Peninsula. Our Prime Minister [Scott Morrison] (bless him) has apparently instructed his followers to button their lips, obviously not including [Home Affairs Minister] Peter Dutton. Small shovels of earth to mark the start of the new Rosebud Aquatic Centre, destined to bloom after my demise. We excitedly await news from our own [Flinders MP] Greg Hunt, including a study of the ageing process at Monash University’s existing campus at Frankston. Those pre-election promises. Stupidly, I sent his colour brochures to the waste paper basket, assuming a Labor victory. Now I cannot recall his glorious set of promises. Old age. Cliff Ellen, Rye

Tennis elbow shock relief

YOU have had a big week on the tools or have increased the amount of tennis you are playing or may have a new racquet. Then it seems like everything you pick up, not just racquets and tools, hurts. Even simple things like a cup of tea can be painful if your elbow is bad. This can really make work a misery, or the prospect of playing tennis, foreboding. The pain on the outside of the elbow is due to inflammation of the tendon, the common extensor origin, where the forearm extensor muscles attach. It is commonly known as “tennis elbow” but is called lateral epicondylalgia or epicondylitis amongst physios and doctors. Physiotherapist David Ternes says that it is an is an overuse injury, and requires initial rest, particularly if aching at night, icing, strengthening and stretching exercises, and massage. Apart from the above solutions, there is a newer healing technology that is making a profound difference to Tennis Elbow sufferers. Practice owner, Paul Rowson says “Shockwave Therapy is often useful, because the common extensor origin is a connective tissue, not a muscle. It puts a significant shockwave through the tissues you apply it to. It is a pressure wave which brings blood flow to the area. Tendons and connective tissue do not have much blood supply and can take a long time to heal. Shockwave artificially stimulates the healing of the tendon.” Shockwave therapy can also be used on Achilles tendonitis, Plantar Fasciitis, golfer’s elbow, and rotator cuff tendon problems, and is usually most effective on long term chronic problems, rather than acute injuries. Both physios say, Shockwave is not the first line of treatment for injured patients.

Physiotherapy and graded exercise are more likely in the first instance, but for more stubborn conditions, shockwave has shown good results. “The evidence at the moment suggests between three to five treatments are required, but most people should see an improvement within three sessions. It has a success rate up to 90%,’’ Ternes says. The Shockwave therapy is administered for a three-minute period to the affected area during consecutive weekly appointments. “It is a bit of an uncomfortable sensation” Ternes says, “like most physio hands-on treatments with a little discomfort during the treatment. Rowson says “After each session, most people get a significant reduction of pain and symptoms.

Long term it stimulates healing, short term it reduces pain.” “Probably the best thing is, the effects are long lasting. It stops a lot of people having more invasive things like surgery or injections. The treatment is considered safe, but can produce skin reddening or bruising, short term pain, and cannot be used on people taking blood thinning medications or with bleeding disorders.” “It is important to know that Shockwave has a long-term effect. Most of the time you have good outcomes without having to have further treatments.” Shockwave is now available in Balnarring. Call in and speak to the physios to see if it suits your condition.

THE MEANING OF EXISTENCE... AND OTHER SHORT STORIES

Blindsided by a Christmas Cake Catastrophe By Stuart McCullough IT’S over. Despite my best efforts, there’s little left to do but concede defeat. As someone who is freshly vanquished, it’s never much fun to have to pull the white flag out of the second draw of the dresser, give it a quick iron before hoisting it high for all to see. As indignities pile up like sedans on the Monash in peak hour, I must feign graciousness as my brother steps forward to claim the glory that is now indisputably his for the taking. If only I‘d saved my Christmas cake a little longer. Each year, my brothers and sisters and I receive a Christmas cake. The challenge then is as to which of us can keep said cake the longest. I’ll admit the playing field if far from even – one of my sisters has four teenage children and her cake is unlikely to survive the trip home in the car. My brother Cam and I are especially competitive. He’s always had a gift for hoarding. At Easter, we’d inhale our eggs within the first three minutes, before spending the rest of the day in a near-catatonic state from the sugar. Six months later, he would produce an uneaten Easter egg from his room. The supply seemed endless. As a younger man, my Christmas cake never survived January. In fact, I can recall moments in my life when Christmas cake was all I ate in summer. This would then be a source for shame when my brother would casually enquire whether I had any left. When I conceded I didn’t, he’d respond provocatively by saying that he was yet to start his. As I was flooded with shame, I’d vow that next

year would be different. Last year, I made it to March. Using super-human willpower, I ensured that I still had a piece when my brother made his customary enquiry. When I declared that I did, he sorrowfully informed me that his was gone. To celebrate, I immediately devoured 7 August 2019

the last piece before receiving a text message from my brother with a picture. It was, so he claimed, his last remaining piece of Christmas cake. It was a trap and I had been duped. This year I was determined. March came and went, and I still had cake to spare. April, May and June were

no different. For the first time ever, I reached July which, in cake-eating terms, is pretty much the equivalent of a gastronomic Mount Everest. Suddenly, making it through to the end of the year seemed possible. What I didn’t count on was the unexpected. Fate or, possibly, my mother in law, intervened. My mother in law sprained her ankle. Badly. After a trip to the emergency department, she returned to our house to convalesce for a week or so. I returned home from work one evening to find my wife, waiting, ashen-faced and asking, ‘Were you saving that last piece of Christmas cake?’ Somehow, the question made my decision to preserve a piece of cake as long as possible sound very important. Bigger. Suddenly, a polite contest with my brother was being recast as a decades-old rivalry between siblings so fierce that Romulus and Remus would consider it extreme. Yes, I answered. I was saving it. I’d left it in a plastic container on top of the fridge for months. By keeping it out of my line of sight and somewhat hidden, I had assumed it was safe. I was dead wrong. My mother in law had eaten it. How someone on crutches managed to find their way to the top of the fridge will forever remain a mystery. Not a crumb remained. It had been devoured, vaporized out of existence. All that was left was a small scorch mark where a piece of moist, fruity icing-laden Christmas cake had once stood. I immediately texted my brother to concede defeat. He immediately replied to claim victory.

I was beaten. But despite being totally vanquished, I had no plans whatsoever to mention any of this to my mother in law. There was no point. Besides, how was she to know? It’s not like I’d labeled it as ‘Private’. The fact that I give her a cake of her own each year so she doesn’t eat mine is irrelevant. Next year, I’d do things differently by increasing security. Within moments I was punching in my credit card details to purchase the state of the art CMI Security Cabinet 1500 with 6 millimetre steel plate door that appeared custom-made to keep mothers in law away from your Christmas cake. If nine hundred bucks seems a lot to outlay to protect a piece of cake, I can only say that it’s very nice cake. As a rule, I let sleeping dogs lie; unless, of course, I trip over them in the dark on the way to the bathroom. My wife and her sister, however, openly wondered whether the my mother in law’s consumption of the Christmas cake was not so much an honest mistake as it was some kind of ‘power play’. I’d rather not know. This week, my brother sent through a photo of his last remaining piece. I assume he was about to eat it. Next year, I’ll do better. I’ll lock my cake in my new safe that I’ll bury in the backyard before concreting over the top and moving house, to throw hungry relatives off the scent. You can’t be too careful. If that sounds over the top, I can only say that nothing tastes as sweet as success. Other than cake, of course. stuart@stuartmccullough.com

Both soldiers had several years active service. *** Cr C. M Griffeths was not present at Thursday’s Council meeting. He is still ill suffering from gastric influenza. *** Mr W. J. F. Boake, L.D.S., B.D.Sc., dental surgeon, notifies in another column that he will visit Frankston every Wednesday, and may be consulted at Messrs Brody and Mason’s rooms. *** The Frankston Branch of the Protestant Federation will hold a public meeting and social on Friday, August 22nd in the Mechanics Hall.

It was decided to accept the amended tender of Mr Stephens for repairs to hall, £35, subject to the approval of the architect, Mr Ward. An application was received from the “Welcome Home” Committee asking for a reduction on rent of hall on the occasion of the last social as the lights were turned off at 10.30, causing great inconvenience and disappointment. It was resolved that an allowance of 10s be made and that a demand be made on the Gas Company to refund the amount. The “Wattle” Club asked for a refund of portion of the amounts paid for hire of hall for social functions. The secretary was instructed to reply stating that the Committee could not make refunds. *** Today at 2.30pm Messrs Brody and Mason will conduct a sale on account of Mr G. W. Booth at the old iron garage, near the Frankston Railway station. The inventory includes a useful lot of sundries particulars of which are advertised in another column. ***

On Sunday last a large party of invalid soldiers from Caulfield Hospital were entertained at Frankston by the “Wattle” Club. The visitors arrived in motor cars kindly provided by the Melbourne Automobile Club, and were welcomed by Mrs C. Dalman, vice-president, in the absence of the president of the “Wattle” club, Miss Gregory. Afternoon tea was provided in the Mechanics’ Hall and an interesting musical program was rendered at intervals. The hall decorations were much admired, and altogether the soldiers were provided with a very pleasant outing. The Committee of the Wattle Club desire to thank all who so kindly contributed to the success of the gathering and particularly to those who made donations in cash and kind. *** The annual council elections take place on Thursday, 28th August. Nominations must be lodged on or before Thursday next, 14th August. Contests are practically certain in the two new Ridings – Frankston and Seaford. Cr Turner retires in the East Riding and Cr Longmuir in the Centre Riding. They both offer themselves for re-election and there is no present indication of opposition. In the Frankston Riding there are three seats to be filled, and in addition to Cr Oates and Mason, who are standing for re-election, Messrs F. H. Wells and J. Nott Marsh have announced their candidature. At present the definite contestants

for the Seaford Riding are Messrs Howell, Armstrong and Latham, while Cr Hoare and Mr McCulloch are also mentioned as certain to nominate. In the Cranbourne Shire, Mr Berry is to oppose Mr Griffith for the seat in the Tooradin Riding vacated by Cr Lloyd. *** Repatriation Returned Soldiers are invited to apply to this Committee for advice before entertaining business proposals of any kind. Employers are requested to notify the Committee of any vacancy suitable for returned men. Persons having businesses or property, &c., to sell suitable to Returned Soldiers are earnestly invited to communicate particulars to the Committee. W. P. MASON, Hon. Sec., Repatriation, Frankston. *** Hastings Public meeting to be held on Saturday, 16th. See advt. School opened on Wednesday, after being closed for six weeks on account of diphtheria.

Allen (father of Hastings footballers of that name). Miss Romeo acted as accompanist in an accomplished manner. Great praise is due to all the above named, and also to Misses Unthank (3), Murray (2), and Grant (2). These ladies and gentlemen are continuously giving their services for patriotic movements. The Hastings football team, at the most critical time, are likely to lose the services of two of their best members, in Mollison and Foster. Efforts are being made to retain them. F. Jack, who has just returned from the front, played his first game since returning, and was a power in the team. Rumors of a big event in aid of The Local Soldiers’ Memorial on Boxing Day next. The final balance sheet and reports of Committee re Peace Day Celebrations show expenditure £9 14s. The day was devoted mainly to the entertainment of children, with a social at night for adults. A large number of helpers provided lunch, tea, and supper. Hastings young ladies are waking up. Something big in the way of concerts is coming along shortly. Miss Nellie Nichol has taken over the agency of “The Standard” in Hastings. Copies can be obtained at her dressmaking establishment on Friday evenings after arrival of train. *** FROM the pages of the Mornington Standard, 9 August 1919

Tigers show bite in fiery contest DIVISION ONE

By Brodie Cowburn PINES have slumped to their second consecutive loss after being defeated by Dromana on Saturday. The out of form reigning premiers played host to the Tigers in what would prove to be a tense afternoon. Dromana got the jump early in an even first quarter, and had established a handy three goal lead halfway through the second term. Tensions bubbled over just before half time when Pines defender Guy Hendry wiped out his opponent with a massive bump in a marking contest. The hit fired both teams up, and after a short scuffle Dromana continued to play with fire in their bellies. The Tigers continued to flex their muscles in the second half, and eventually ran away to a hard fought 28 point win 8.8 (56) to 12.12 (84). Ben Holmes booted six goals in his second match back for Dromana. Aaron Edwards booted four for Pines. The loss saw Pines slip further away from top of the ladder Sorrento, who defeated Bonbeach with ease. Star forward Leigh Poholke was at his best for the Sharks, piling on ten goals for the afternoon. Bonbeach didn’t have an answer for him all day. After a close first quarter, Sorrento stretched their lead in the second term

and didn’t look in danger of losing. Sorrento proved to the competition that they are the team to beat with a comfortable 56 point win. They defeated Bonbeach 19.7 (121) to 9.11 (65). At Regents Park, Frankston YCW cemented themselves in fifth place on the ladder with a win over EdithvaleAspendale. With just two weeks remaining in the home and away season, the victory puts the Stonecats in pole position for a finals berth. Both sides traded blows in a high scoring first term. Eleven goals were scored between both sides in the first quarter, but it was EdithvaleAspendale who went into the break with the narrow advantage. The Stonecats swiped back in the second quarter, establishing a 21 point lead heading into the second half of the match. Edi-Asp kept in touch with a big effort in the third quarter, but YCW proved just too good in the end. They ran away with the win after a five goals to two final quarter. The Stonecats had to work for it, but eventually claimed all four points with an entertaining 13.9 (87) to 18.14 (122) win. Luke Paynter scored four goals for the winning outfit, while Lachlan Wallace was also named among the best. Rosebud’s finals hopes were dealt a

major blow this weekend, as they were defeated by Mt Eliza. The Redlegs got the jump early in a scrappy first term, and heading into half time had a five goal lead. Rosebud had a frustrating time in the first half, only putting one goal on the board. Rosebud had further trouble in the third term, adding just two more behinds to their score. They improved in the final quarter but it was far too little, far too late. Mt Eliza looked the better side all day, and claimed the four points with a 4.7 (31) to 11.11 (77) win. Shane Tennant scored four majors for the Redlegs. At Greg Beck Oval, Frankston Bombers proved to be too good for bottom placed Mornington. The Bulldogs worked hard all day long, but were overrun in the final term. The final score read 12.10 (82) to 8.10 (58). With their percentage so far behind Edithvale-Aspendale, the Bulldogs will likely need to win their remaining two games for the year to avoid relegation.

Hastings save finals hopes DIVISION TWO

By Brodie Cowburn HASTINGS have kept their finals hopes alive with a thrilling come from behind win over Seaford. A win for the Tigers away from home at Thomas Barclay Oval would have put them two games ahead of Hastings and in a good position heading into the last games of the year. A loss for Hastings would have effectively ruled them out of finals contention. Seaford started strong with a three goals to zero first term, but Hastings fought back in the second. Seaford overturned the two point deficit in the third quarter, and were up by nine heading into the final term. Hastings had to claw their way back, but eventually secured the narrowest of wins over Seaford. The final siren sounded with Hastings up by just a point. The final score was 8.12 (60) to 8.11 (59). Brendan Fevola kicked two goals for the Blues. Another side battling hard for a finals position is Somerville, who secured an easy win this weekend over Crib Point. Somerville were impressive from the get go and booted 16 first half goals. The Magpies looked outclassed all day, and never got close. They eventually succumbed to a whopping 160 point loss to Somerville 3.7 (25) to 29.11 (185). Paul Fermanis booted six goals for Somerville, while Ryan Gillis scored five. Gillis now has 52 for the year. After this weekend’s games, just percentage separates Somerville, Seaford and Hastings in what will be a

thrilling battle for fifth place. All sides are equal with ten wins for the year. At the top end of the ladder, Red Hill put together another good defensive display and defeated Devon Meadows. The Panthers struggled and scored just two goals all afternoon. A five goals to zero final term sealed their fate, as the Hillmen got the win 2.5 (17) to 9.15 (69). Daniel Allsop was named best on ground, keeping up his stunning run of form. Karingal had a little more trouble as they took on Tyabb, but still secured a win to keep in touch with the top of the ladder position. Lowly Tyabb worked hard all day on the road against the Bulls, but just couldn’t do enough to get the job done. The final siren sounded with Karingal 28 points ahead 8.10 (58) to 4.6 (30). Marc Holt had another quiet day for the Bulls, kicking just the one goal. It was an easy day for premiership smokies Langwarrin, as they thrashed Pearcedale by over 100 points. Pearcedale could only manage two goals for the day, as the Kangaroos dominated them. Matthew Peyenborg booted six goals for Langwarrin while Zach Andrewartha scored five. Their side got the win 2.6 (18) to 23.15 (153). At RJ Rowley Reserve, Rye played host to Chelsea. The home side worked hard and the contest looked as if it might go down to the wire with both sides level at three-quarter-time. Chelsea got the job done in the final quarter, and claimed the win 6.9 (45) to 9.8 (62). 7 August 2019

Late Baird strike stuns Werribee SOCCER

By Craig MacKenzie A SIZZLING injury-time winner from import John Baird gave Langwarrin its best win of the season against visitor Werribee City at Lawton Park on Saturday. The former Scottish professional let fly with a first-time left-foot volley from the left of the area that Werribee keeper Nikola Kostadinoski couldn’t stop from rocketing into the far corner of goal. Werribee came to the peninsula in third spot in NPL2 West just two points behind leader St Albans Saints but its promotion chances were dealt a bodyblow by Baird’s late winner. Langwarrin had lined up in a pink strip as part of the club’s promotion of the DonateLife movement to raise community awareness of the importance of registering as an organ and tissue donor. It created the best chance of the first half in the 37th minute with a slick interpassing movement involving Damir Stoilovic and Callum Goulding that ended with Wayne Wallace’s shot being deflected just wide of the near post. But the visitors broke the deadlock in the 54th minute with a stinging long-range strike from Tyler James after a Jake Butler lay-off on the left. Langy gaffer Scott Miller made a double substitution in the 62nd minute and struck gold. Six minutes later one of the subs, Luke Burgess, sent a firm low cross in behind the Werribee defence and Shaun Hodor sliding in to clear could only divert the ball past Kostadinoski for an own goal. The other Langy sub, David Stirton, set Lawton Park alight with a belter of a free kick four minutes later sending the ball crashing off the inside of the far post and giving Kostadinoski no chance. But Werribee levelled in the 79th minute when Alec Goodwin beat advancing Fraser Maclaren to a Lisandro Paz free kick from the left heading past the Langy keeper to make it 2-2. The stage was set for a dramatic winner and four minutes into injury time Baird stole the show and the Langy bench erupted. “It was an awesome win and I couldn’t be happier for the team,” Miller said. “That’s the best game of football we’ve been involved in all season.” In NPLW news Southern United lost 6-0 to finals-bound Alamein on Sunday. The match was played at Dorothy

Laver West Reserve in Glen Iris on a substandard pitch sanctioned by Football Victoria in contravention of its own facility and playing standards. Southern’s under-19s lost 3-0 while the under-16s and under-14s both lost 1-0. Meanwhile the burgeoning career of striker Alana Murphy continues apace with news that the teenager has been included in the 23-player national under-17 squad that started a three-match Pacific tour this week. The former Langwarrin junior and current National Training Centre star turns 14 next month and is keen to forge a professional career in the women’s game. At least one leading English club is keeping tabs on the young prodigy. In State 1 news Mornington again fell foul of a late Richmond goal when it lost 3-2 at Kevin Bartlett Reserve last weekend. In the corresponding fixture at Dallas Brooks Park in the first half of the season 10-man Richmond stole a point with a 97th minute equaliser. Last Saturday a Julio Beltran goal in the 95th minute proved Mornington’s undoing after Liam Baxter and Sammy Orritt had given the visitors a 2-1 half-time lead.

weekend, a result that makes promotion for the local outfit highly unlikely. This contest sprang into life in the last half-hour and one of the sparks was teenage Strikers’ substitute Matt Harrington who along with Jordan “Kaka” Avraham came off the bench in the 60th minute in an attempt to break the impasse. “Kaka” sent Harrington through in the 70th minute but the youngster’s shot was blocked by Knox keeper Enes Unai and Alpha Turay’s attempt from the rebound was blocked by a defender before the ball was scrambled clear. Two minutes later Grant Lane and Harrington combined down the right but Harrington’s cutback was completely mistimed by Turay when dead in front. Then in the 75th minute Ray Markley ghosted in at the far post to sidefoot home a delicately flighted chip from Knox substitute Aaron Porcaro to give the visitors a shock lead. In the 85th minute “Kaka” sent Harrington down the right again and this time his cutback was calmly slotted first time past Unai by John Prescott to make it 1-1. Strikers’ players and supporters barely had time to celebrate for straight from the restart Matt Kurceja unleashed a 25-metre piledriver that

left Strikers’ keeper Colin McCormack clutching at thin air. Strikers’ had chances to put Unai under intense pressure but poor delivery from free-kicks and corners proved costly. In State 3 news Skye United’s promotion tilt took a massive hit with a 2-1 away loss to champion elect Collingwood City last Friday night. Privately Skye is seething with the standard of officiating that left it with nine men for the last hour of the contest but would not to comment for fear of Football Victoria reprisal. Skye scored first through a Daniel Walsh header following a Mark O’Connor free-kick in the 25th minute. Then Harrison Michaelis earned two yellow cards in two minutes for his only fouls of the match and Mikey Turner earned a second yellow for nudging a defender who was trying to shield the ball and run it out of play. Five minutes into the second half Collingwood’s Stephen Mahon bundled the ball over the goal line for the equaliser then the referee awarded a controversial penalty in the 67th minute ruling that Mitch Blake had handled. Matt Richardson converted what was to be the winner. To add insult to injury minutes after the restart Skye earned a rare second half corner and the delivery struck the hand of a Collingwood defender only for the referee to wave away Skye’s penalty appeals. The only upside to the weekend’s round of matches was the shock loss of second-placed Whitehorse United giving Skye the chance to leapfrog its promotion opponent when it plays a catch-up match at home against Elwood City on Thursday night. Frankston Pines also played last Friday night and was able to hold on in the final 10 minutes to record a 2-1 home win over Ashburton United. Pines coach Kevin “Squizzy” Taylor rejigged his defensive structure with Kevin Brown joining Cedric Benza in central defence, Connor McAndrews and Noah Green as full backs and the experienced Daniel Mota playing in centre midfield. Lachie McMinimee put Pines ahead 10 minutes into the second half when a long throw by McAndrews was flicked on by CJ Hodgson and McMinimee rolled his marker then shot truly from close range. Joe O’Connor pounced on a poor back pass in the 82nd minute to make it 2-0 but Ashburton’s Filip Dubljevic reacted quickly and made it 2-1 after

Pines keeper Jarrod Nardino had parried a shot in the 88th minute. In State 4 news Baxter recorded a 2-1 home win over Keysborough last weekend thanks to a late own goal. A Nico Juric free-kick in the 12th minute was headed in by Stuart MacKenzie but Helder Garcia grabbed the equaliser in the 30th minute when Baxter was caught on the break. Juric rattled the bar with a free-kick in the second half and a stray back pass under pressure from McKenzie in the 81st minute settled the issue. Seaford and Noble Park United couldn’t resolve their arm wrestle at North Seaford Reserve on Saturday and the match ended in a scoreless draw. In State 5 news Somerville’s title tilt stayed on course thanks to a gritty 3-1 home win over White Star Dandenong last weekend. While Somie keeper Francis Beck was forced to make two quality saves at pivotal moments the home side took a 2-0 lead into the interval. The opener came from the spot thanks to a converted penalty from player-coach Dave Greening following a foul on strike partner Mark Pagliarulo and the second came from a Greening volley in the 42nd minute following a superb Pagliarulo cross. White Star’s Louis Palmire made it 2-1 in the 55th minute but Pagliarulo restored Somie’s two-goal cushion with a header eight minutes later. Aspendale Stingrays enjoyed a comfortable 4-1 home win over Hampton Park United last weekend. The home team led 2-0 at the interval thanks to Anthony Segavac and an own goal from Mohammad Changizi and second-half goals to Kieran Hughes and 16-year-old substitute Nathan Barnett completed the win. Hampton Park’s goal came from the penalty spot a minute into injury time. Rosebud lost 2-0 at home to Knox United on Saturday. Only five local clubs are in action this week as it’s a catch-up round: THURSDAY, 8.30pm: Skye Utd v Elwood City (Skye Recreation Reserve). SATURDAY, 3pm: Mazenod Victory v Mornington (Brandon Park Reserve), Rowville Eagles v Seaford United (Park Ridge Reserve), Rosebud v Endeavour Hills Fire (Olympic Park), Aspendale Stingrays v Old Mentonians (Jack Grut Reserve).

Freedman’s stars get put through their paces HORSE RACING

Put through her paces: Group One Blue Diamond winner Lyre stepped out at Mornington in preparation for her return to the races on Wednesday 31 July. Picture: Supplied

By Ben Triandafillou SOME of Anthony Freedman’s talented crop of thoroughbreds stepped out at the Mornington jumpouts on Wednesday 31 July as they begin their preparation for the upcoming Spring Racing Carnival. At the top of the list for the Pinecliff, Mount Eliza-based trainer was Group One Blue Diamond Stakes winner and Golden Slipper placegetter, Lyre, who was put through her paces in the opening heat of the morning. Similar to most of Freedman’s triallers, Lyre wasn’t asked to do much and was given a quiet time in her trial despite finishing a close third. Freedman said he was rapt with her after receiving some good feedback from jockey Luke Currie. “She wasn’t here to do a lot,” Freedman said. “She went around pretty much untouched. “She certainly looks bigger and more complete than she did as a twoyear-old and hopefully that transforms into an improvement on the track - which it generally does - so we’re happy in that respect.” With the Group One Thousand Guineas (1600m) one of a couple of possibilities for the now three-yearold daughter of Lonhro, Freedman said she’ll have another jumpout in a week to 10 days and then possibly head to Caulfield on Saturday 17 August for the Quezette Stakes. “She’ll head in that direction but if there is any concern at the mile, she’ll drop back in distance,” he said. “The first-up run will give us an in-

dication and certainly her second and third runs will tell us exactly where she’s at.” Talented three-year-olds Super Seth and Meuse also stepped out for a quiet trial in the second heat of the morning, where they camped at the rear before making late progress to finish fourth and fifth, respectively. Freedman said it was always the plan to not do too much with them. “Again, we got good feedback from the riders, so it sets us up for the next few weeks as to what we do with them

and where we head with them,” he said. “He (Super Seth) may not kick off until the end of August and the filly (Meuse) possibly at The Valley in the middle of August.” Another one of Freedman’s quality three-year-olds, I Am Immortal, entered the fourth trial of the morning where he rolled to the front and crossed the line in front alongside the Chris Meagher-trained My Bluewings. The dual Stakes winner will likely

tackle the older sprinters in races like the Group One Moir Stakes in the spring but is still a few weeks off resuming according to Freedman. “He had a very soft trial this morning and he got a bit tired, so we’ve got a bit of work to do with him over the next couple of weeks,” he said. “He’ll have another jumpout in the next 10 days or so and be put under a bit of pressure and he may run at Caulfield on the 17th.” Along with another couple of threeyear-old triallers such as Rockthe-

nightaway (fifth heat) and Warning (sixth heat), Freedman also stepped out one of their new arrivals to the stable, Aloisia. The 2017 Group One Thousand Guineas winner, who was sold and bought by a client of Freedman’s and moved into Pinecliff over six weeks ago, settled at the rear before making gradual improvement late in the third trial. Freedman said the brief with her is to get her up and going early. “If she’s in good form and racing well, she’ll race on. If not, she’ll head to stud,” he said. “She didn’t do a lot (this morning) and wasn’t asked to do a lot. We’re still learning about her but, at the moment, she’s fairly straightforward.”
