Pensioner left stranded Stephen Taylor steve@mpnews.com.au TWO men who robbed a pensioner while he was riding his mobility scooter and walking his dog along Rosebud foreshore last week have been described as “despicable� and “callous�.

When he told them he was not carrying one, they pulled him from the scooter and removed his jacket, watch and wedding ring. Inside the jacket were his phone and credit and pension cards.

Party house bedroom quotas ‘not the way to go’

Stephen Taylor steve@mpnews.com.au

LIMITING short-stay rentals on the Morning Peninsula to a maximum of two people a bedroom would be “overkillâ€? and unlikely to reduce problems, the owner of an established holiday rental said last week. Christine Delamore, who said she had never had problems with tenants at her Dromana holiday house, said a “few bad applesâ€? at other rentals were tarnishing the industry. Many holiday rentals have three beds a bedroom – such as a queen size for the parents and bunk beds for young people, she said. “It’s good to have regulations and high standards ‌ but to limit bedrooms to two people is not going to work.â€? Ms Delamore was responding to moves by Mornington Peninsula Shire to lesson the “public nuisanceâ€? problems being caused by party houses. Complaints about poor behaviour by short-term renters are on the rise, with the shire receiving 87 since November. Online letting agency Stayz said that while it would “work closely with the shire to ensure fit-for-purpose regulation for short-term rental accommodation on the peninsulaâ€? it was not in favour of “draconian restrictionsâ€?. Corporate and government affairs director Jordan Condo said Stayz “supports a registration process that would require all owners to register to a central system before they can list a property on a platformâ€?. “Owners would be required to adhere to a strict code of conduct which would differ, depending on the type of accommodation and its location,â€? he said. “If the code of conduct were to be breached by an owner they would be prevented listing their property on any platform. Applying consequences to property owners that are supported and en-

forced by platforms is the best way to manage amenity issues while supporting local jobs in regional areas – not draconian restrictions.� Mr Condo said that, last year, short-term rentals generated $113.5 million in what he termed “economic uplift� and supported up to 843 jobs to the Mornington Peninsula. He said 90,570 room nights were booked in short-term rental accommodation on the peninsula last year, “generating $22.7 million in revenue for hosts�. Environment protection manager John Rankine told the shire’s 25 July council meeting that reducing the number of occupants to two a bedroom was “pivotal, as fewer occupants [per house] produce less noise, less rubbish and less parking congestion�. “Residents in our communities are entitled to the quiet enjoyment of their property and the operation of these businesses in residential areas, when they are a nuisance, needs to be dealt with.� An example of a “bad apple� cited by council officers was a landlord advertising a five-bedroom house to accommodate 30 people or more. “These will be targeted initially [by the shire] to reduce the advertised accommodation capacity back to two persons per bedroom,� the officer’s report stated. Shire officers have been given authority to “enforce the provisions of relevant legislation to address complaints of anti-social behaviour from short-term accommodation�. There is also talk of a forum where those affected by “party houses� could get together to “develop a co-operative approach aimed at preventing anti-social behaviour from short term accommodation occupants�. Shire officers will now liaise with police, tourism representatives, and short term accommodation providers, such as Stayz, Airbnb and local real estate agents, to better control the industry. This comes after months of complaints by residents about loud music, bad language, yelling and anti-social behaviour late into the night, as

well as parking congestion and domestic rubbish dumped by out-of-towners in their normally quiet streets. Owners will be told they need a planning permit to run an accommodation business in a residential area, and that it must operate with “no unreasonable noise or nuisance�. “While these complaints represent a very small minority of the overall short stay accommodation on the peninsula, the impact on neighbours has been significant and has become a priority for

council,� the mayor Cr Bev Colomb said. “To help prevent these problems from reoccurring, an important next step is for us to start strongly engaging with key stakeholders on this issue. “Together we will work to develop a cooperative approach to managing the problem and promote responsible behaviour at short-stay accommodation.� Owners needed to “take greater responsibility for the behaviour of their occupants�.

Aerators installed to improve bird health Aerators have been installed in the two lakes at Civic Reserve, Mornington. The aerators will help combat poor water quality which led to a botulism outbreak in birds last summer and a high level of blue-green algae in previous years. Shire officers are continuing with weed control in the area and hope to undertake some replanting for bird habitat soon. A big thank you to all the volunteers who monitored the lakes this year, removed the dead birds and rescued sick birds. We will monitor oxygen levels and water quality over the next few months and we expect to see healthy birds this summer. A longer-term concept design study on improving the lake environment is also being considered.

Lions lunch to celebrate 50 years MEMBERS of Dromana Lions Club will celebrate their 50 years of service with a lunch at the Safety Beach Sailing Club on Sunday 20 August. Club secretary Graeme Wilson said former members and members of the Dromana Lioness Club were welcome to attend. Mr Wilson said the Dromana Lions Club was chartered with 26 members on 21 August 1967 and became the 476th Lions Club in Australia. “The first donation of the many that the club has made, was in 1968 for $350 to the Shire of Flinders for equipment in the children’s playground in Dromana,” he said. “In March 1968, the ladies auxiliary was formed and in 1984 this became the Lioness Club of Dromana.” The Lionesses disbanded In June “due to the age and health of the existing membership”. Mr Wilson said the Lions club raised money for community projects through raffles, sausage sizzles, Melbourne Cup Day at Delamere, gown

of the year and a strawberry festival. Most money came from opportunity shops at Dromana and Rosebud. The 20 August lunch at the sailing club starts at midday. Cost for the two-course meal is $25. For details and bookings call Mr Wilson on 5981 8970 or email graeme_seaside@yahoo. com.au by Friday 11 August.

fear for their lives or face persecution. “Many of the asylum seekers are granted visas that don’t allow them to work. They would love to work.” Ms Stubbs said food donors also “let me know of some furniture they are getting rid of that would be suitable for asylum seekers setting up a home in Dandenong”. “We have a man who generously lends us his truck to pick up furniture. We’ve been able to provide asylum seekers who have virtually nothing with furniture and the necessities of life.” Ms Stubbs says she also tries to dispel myths about Muslims. “The media have demonised Muslims who are a gentle and hospitable people. When we drop off furniture or white goods they invite us into their houses and make us most welcome,” she says. Couples from the church take turns in looking after the cage for a month at a time. It is emptied every two days and the food is taken to Dandenong weekly. “They also take blankets, toys, books, clothing and household items,” Ms Stubbs says. Supermarket staff put the cage out every morning and take it in just before close of business. “I’m astounded by the generosity of the people of Mt Martha. It’s terrific,” manager Peter Green says. “When you hear about so many bad things happening in the world, it’s heartening to hear of people looking out for those less fortunate.” Ms Stubbs is looking for more volunteers to help take the food to Dandenong, Anyone wishing to help take the food to Dandenong can call Georgie Stubbs on 0438 597 421.

By Barry Morris A WIRE cage outside the Mt Martha supermarket has for the past 15 years been a focal point of community concern for asylum seekers. Every day, shoppers buy and place food staples in the cage which is then taken to the Asylum Seeker Centre at Dandenong. The centre describes itself as a voluntary interdenominational Christian response to the needs of asylum seekers and refugees. It gives food packs to the asylum seekers who are onshore applicants for refugee status The cage outside the supermarket has undergone many transformations. Originally it was a silver colour and later became rusted. It’s had numerous coats of paint of different hues over the years. Before the photo for this story was taken, Georgie Stubbs, the driving force behind the collection, insisted it be repainted in the IGA supermarket’s red. Seventy-year-old Georgie says she has been an activist for 40 years. Now, she wants to thank all those who have donated food as well as the supermarket which has always supported the project and volunteers from Mt Martha Uniting Church who collect and take the food to Dandenong. “The people of Mt Martha have been marvellous,” Ms Stubbs says. “The cage is a focal point for conversation. Often when people are leaving food they will get into a discussion about asylum seekers. “It becomes a forum. They want to discuss issues. “Sometimes they are unaware that asylum seekers who come to Australia are genuinely in

Art inspiration from flesh-eating ulcer By Mike Hast ARTIST Vicki Sullivan’s entry in this year’s prestigious Doug Moran National Portrait Prize is Professor Daniel O’Brien. It’s not a familiar name to most people but his work on the Bairnsdale ulcer is widely known, especially on the southern Mornington Peninsula, a hotspot for the skin disease. Professor O’Brien is an internationally known infectious diseases specialist focusing on HIV/AIDS, tuberculosis and Mycobacterium ulcerans, the Bairnsdale ulcer. He works at Geelong and Royal Melbourne hospitals, holds a teaching and research position at the University of Melbourne, and advises Medecins Sans Frontieres (Doctors Without Borders). Professor O’Brien, who lives in Geelong, conducts a monthly clinic at Sorrento where he is currently treating 25 people with the flesh-eating ulcer. He also liaises with Frankston Hospital and GPs in the region who are treating other people with the disease. The bacteria, which contrary to common belief does not enter the bloodstream, infects the skin and subcutaneous tissue. It has to be treated with heavy-duty antibiotics and often surgery. It is a reportable disease and cases are on the rise, including on the peninsula, mainly centred at Rye but also Tootgarook, Blairgowrie and Sorrento. Several cases have been reported at Mornington and Frankston. In Victoria, 104 cases were reported

to 1 August. Last year at the same time there had been 51 cases reported, 40 in 2015 and 35 in 2014. Australia is the only developed country with significant Bairnsdale ulcer outbreaks, named after the Gippsland town where the first patients presented in 1939. Ms Sullivan, of Rye, heard about Professor O’Brien and his work when an ulcer appeared on the nose of her

neighbour’s young grandson. “It was heading towards his eye. As an artist, the thought of eye damage is terrifying and everyone was very concerned for this little fellow,” she told The News. “Luckily with the right sort of treatment from Professor O’Brien the ulcer was contained and the eye was not affected.” Soon after, Ms Sullivan’s friend

Judy Muir (of Polperro dolphin tours fame) found an ulcer on her leg and attended the doctor’s clinic for treatment. Ms Sullivan received regular updates about the healing process when the pair walked along their beach at Sorrento. It was Ms Muir who suggested Ms Sullivan paint a portrait of the professor. Ms Muir said he was a nice man and

jokingly said it was “almost worth getting the ulcer just to meet him”. “I said I didn’t want to go that far for the sake of my art but would love for her to ask him if he would consider it,” Ms Sullivan said with a laugh. The artist said doing a portrait of Professor O’Brien was one way to focus public attention on the ulcer. “Not enough is known about it and much more needs to be done,” Ms Sullivan said. “I am hoping more people will be on the lookout for the ulcer and get suspicious signs checked earlier.” Professor O’Brien told The News research funding was needed as the disease was on the rise and was not fully understood. “We still have a lot to learn about where the bacteria lives in the environment and how it is transmitted,” he said. He said recent research indicated the bacteria may be on people’s skin after they had been exposed to it outdoors. Insect bites including from mosquitoes could be transferring the bacteria into the skin and tissue. Many people had been bitten during the warmer months but nothing occurred until the cooler months. “We think the incubation period is about four and a half months,” he said. He advised people to cover up in summer and use insect repellent. On a lighter note, he said having his portrait painted was a “humbling experience”. “I’m not used to this sort of attention.” The winner of the Doug Moran National Portrait Prize will be announced in October.

Steady as she goes on alcohol policy By Mike Hast MORNINGTON Peninsula Shire has a new Alcohol Management Policy, but it reads the same as the one adopted this time last year. Just three submissions from members of the public were received before the shire made its annual review of the alcohol policy. One submitter was unhappy about not being able to take a bottle of red wine to the beach for a barbecue without breaking a shire local law, one complained about cigarettes at licensed outlets, and one wanted footpaths improved. The wine drinker stated: “I would like us to act as a mature community – I do not want to see a ‘nanny state’ developed. I want to be able to go down to our great foreshore facilities and have a barbecue and a glass of red wine.” The footpath submitter said his mother had had two hip replacement operations and was “unable to walk along the current footpaths confidently”. “This has also limited her access to the beach front. It would be wonderful if the paths could be improved enough so that elderly people could walk without fear of tripping over,” they wrote. The footpath submission was redirected to the shire’s infrastructure strategy department. The small number of submissions would appear to indicate that residents and ratepayers think the shire’s alcohol policy is about right. No major changes were made to the draft policy that went public in May. One of the pillars of the policy is to “provide a clear and transparent approach to alcohol management and guide decision-making surrounding alcohol provision and consumption”. Restricting the number of new liquor outlets is an area where the shire has had limited success.

In recent times it successfully refused a liquor licence for a retail outlet in Moorooduc but approved one in Mt Eliza in the under-construction Eliza Square shopping centre. The village already has three liquor shops, a hotel and five licensed restaurants and cafes, all within about 300 metres of the new liquor shop being built. In April 2011, the state government introduced “cumulative impact” regulations to guide planning approval of liquor outlets. Cumulative impact refers to the positives or negatives of putting licensed premises such as hotels, bars, clubs and liquor shops in the one area. The shire council stuck its neck out in 2011 when it knocked back a First Choice (Wesfarmers/Coles) liquor “superstore” in Rosebud, the 10th liquor outlet along a three-kilometre strip of Point Nepean Rd. Coles challenged the decision in the state planning tribunal VCAT. It was a test case as the shire was the first council to refuse a liquor shop using “cumulative impact” regulations. Coles won. When the draft policy was released in May for public comment, councillors were told that peninsula residents were more at risk of alcoholrelated harm than elsewhere in the state. The shire had more alcohol-related road accidents, more ambulance call-outs to alcohol-related incidents, more hospital emergency department admissions, and more hospital admissions as a result of alcohol than other areas. Examples of the shire’s role in controlling, managing and limiting the consumption of alcohol include bans on drinking in public places on New Year’s Eve, as well as in streets near The Pillars rock jumping area at Mt Martha, and before and after council meetings.

Book offers hope to the ‘disengaged’ By Bob Simpson PENINSULA Voice* this week hosts the launch of The Mouth that Roared, a book by social worker Les Twentyman. Twentyman describes issues concerning disengaged people and families around Melbourne. His stories are disturbing. If skimmed, one could lose all hope for disengaged people. Read more deeply and there are profound truths for redefining complex community issues. Previously, Peninsula Voice opened up conversations on complex issues, including youth depression. While individual stories are heart-breaking, disengagement, about which Twentyman writes, could leave readers generally at the point of despair. However, despite his earthiness, Twentyman has great faith and hope in the people he serves. In reading his book, these qualities were learned from people with whom he engaged over the years. Like his mum. And Father Bob [Maguire] whose “great hero is Jesus”. I imagine Twentyman would be one of Jesus’ knockabout friends, because he loves and cares for people on the margins. I think he believes there are rewarding ways of bringing disengaged young people into the engaged mainstream. Maybe, that’s wishful thinking. Or does he know how to change social policy so we can all flourish?

Les Twentyman First, Twentyman, who came from economically poor Braybrook, says, “Your belly doesn’t have the final say, all the time. I (always) wanted what we now call fulfilment.” This highlights the universal struggle for survival. But human beings also have choice and free will. Used well, there is always hope. Second, no city or shire will ever flourish unless we care and love those on the margins. Arguably, in Twentyman’s view, the quality of family relationships comes first. Third, we will never flourish if we depend on illusory economic development; hunger games mentality

of survival of the fittest; unthinking compliance with rules-based legislation and regulations; or unthinking religious attitudes. There are many questions I’d like to ask. Why and how some people are fully engaged? What’s the place and nature of responsibility within disengagement? What genuine use is political government in these complex issues? Where does all the government money go? The launch of Twentyman’s The Mouth that Roared, is an important event. If you want to see the Mornington Peninsula flourish, arrange to be there, and ask important questions. The 6.30pm-9pm 9 August book launch is at the Peninsula Community Theatre, Wilsons Rd, Mornington. Details: 0438 306 594. * Peninsula Voice is a not-for-profit group of volunteers, which organises and presents public forums to promote “healthy community development”.

Morning tea talks CHAPLAIN David and Bev Parker will speak and sing about their faith 10am 21 August at St Mark’s Anglican Church, Dromana (opposite the IGA).

Family conflict major cause of youth depression THE number of young people committing suicide in Frankston and on the peninsula is causing alarm. The state government has announced funding for the South Eastern Melbourne Primary Health Network to deliver the Lived Experience project designed to “help reduce stigma and promote help-seeking in the Frankston, Mornington Peninsula and Dandenong regions”. Roses in the Ocean, an organisation supporting those with lived experiences of suicide, will provide training and mentoring to help people talk about suicide. A 2012 study by Communities that Care commissioned by Mornington Peninsula Shire revealed an estimated 25.5 per cent of students in years seven, nine and 11 with “depressive symptoms”. “The prevalence of students with depressive symptoms, at each year level, appears to have remained stable over the 10-year period since 2002,” family services and community planning manager Louise Wilkins said. “In 2014 Deakin University examined which factors were related to depression symptoms, and what factors would produce the biggest change on depressive symptoms in the shire. Multivariate modelling demonstrated that family conflict was a risk factor that was associated with the greatest odds of depressive symptoms.” Ms Wilkins said modelling blamed family conflict for increasing the chances of depressive symptoms by 70 per cent. Other reasons for depression are seen as being life events; loneliness; loss and grief; bullying; alcohol and drug use; low self esteem and body image; discrimination; and physical health problems. In Hastings and Mornington families have recently attended movie nights (Shed 11 Youth Centre in Hastings and The Corner Youth Centre in Mornington) and discussed the shire’s Take the Pledge campaign. The “pledge” encourages families to focus on positive and clear communication, spending quality time with loved ones and making their homes more harmonious to reduce family conflict. Taking the pledge can include such activities as eating one meal together as a family each week or attending a child’s sporting event each week. Pledge cards are online at mornpen.vic.gov.au/ctc. For details about youth support on the peninsula call 5950 1666 or mpys@mornpen.vic.gov.au. Advice and help is also available from Headspace Frankston, Mentis Assist and Peninsula Health.

Smoking banned

A BAN on smoking in all commercial outdoor dining areas in Victoria came into effect last Tuesday, 1 August. The ban covers all restaurants, cafes, takeaway shops and licensed premises, including beer gardens, courtyards and footpath dining where food other than snacks is served. The ban applies to food fairs and organised outdoor events such as street and community festivals, school fetes, sporting events and craft markets with food stalls. People caught smoking in an outdoor dining area face a $159 fine, with a maximum court-ordered penalty of $793. Businesses face fines of $793, with a maximum court-ordered penalty of $7924. Businesses also risk the same fine for failing to display “No smoking” signs. Mornington Peninsula Shire mayor Cr Bev Colomb welcomed the new law. “Smoke-free dining will protect people from secondhand smoke, and make the peninsula’s diverse and unique dining culture better for all to enjoy,” she said. The shire’s manager of environment protection, John Rankine, said two of his officers had attended training. “Shire environmental health officers will conduct educational visits at weekend markets and events,” he said. Many sports clubs in the region signed up to be smoke-free this year with Mornington Peninsula Junior Football League leading the way after signing up more than a year ago.

Rude arrival: A brick was used to smash the cafe door at McCrae. Picture: Supplied

Cafes robbed BURGLARS used a brick to smash the front door of the McCrae cafe Merchant and Maker last week. Cash was stolen in the robbery, early morning Monday 31 July. It was the second break-in at the cafe in several months. “Cash was stolen from the register and our crucial morning trade was completely disrupted,� head roaster Ryan Toleman said. “Police are here now dusting for fingerprints.� Another nearby Pt Nepean Rd cafe was also broken into at around the same time.

Burglary charges A HEATHCOTE man, 38, has been charged with 23 burglaries on businesses in Carrum Downs, Frankston South, Hastings, and Somerville since 10 July. Mornington Peninsula Detective Sergeant Steve Read said the man was arrested at a friend’s house in Somerville last week. He was also charged over five bail breaches. The man allegedly targeted electrical supplies, hairdressers, radiologist and plumbing supplies – and five dental surgeries. CCTV and “police methodology� was used to establish his identity. He was remanded to appear at Frankston Mag-

A HASTINGS man was stabbed in the shoulder and repeatedly punched in the face by an unknown man who came into his Thomas Place house, 8.35pm, Monday 31 July. Police said the 44-year-old victim was sitting in his lounge room when the man entered and punched him causing him to lose several teeth. A neighbour came in to investigate the noise and the attacker fled. The victim was taken to Frankston Hospital with serious facial injuries.

Appeal for help MORNINGTON Peninsula detectives are appealing for help following a series of burglaries at Western Port properties since 15 July. Four of the burglaries were at Merricks Beach and one at Point Leo. Doors and windows were forced and large items stolen at properties at Lesley Av, Point Leo, between 15-25 July; Spray St, Merricks Beach (18-23 July); Cliff Rd, Merricks Beach (28-29 July); Bluff Rd, Merricks Beach (29-30 July) and Surf St, Merricks Beach (25 July-1 August). The offenders may have used a trailer, ute or truck due to the size of the items stolen, detectives said.

Girl dies after crash DETECTIVES from the Major Collision Investigation Unit are investigating a collision in Frankston, Thursday 13 July. A Kia Rio sedan travelling east on Cranbourne Rd, 9.40pm, was crossing Moorooduc Highway when it ran head-on into a pole. Its passenger, a 16-year-old girl, of Mt Eliza, was taken to hospital with life threatening injuries. She died on 29 July without gaining consciousness. The 18-year-old woman driver, of Safety Beach, was also taken to hospital with serious injuries. No one else was injured.

On a fast track to better health care By Jessica Mills* FROM running ironman triathlons to running the radiology department at Rosebud Hospital – Damien Barbour is a man on a mission to help improve health outcomes for people on the southern Mornington Peninsula. “Radiology has undergone some major changes since 2014 when we had one x-ray machine,� said Mr Barbour, who started his career at Peninsula Health 13 years ago. “At Rosebud radiology we now have an ultrasound machine and CT scanner. We have an outpatient service as well as providing services to in-patients from the wards and emergency department patients.� Last year the radiology team, including Mr Barbour who is a medical imaging technologist and sonographer, did more than 17,000 examinations. The former John Paul College student has lived on the peninsula for most of his life – currently in Mornington – and says he understands the value of people being able to access the best of care, close to home. “I’m really happy that we’re growing the radiology service at Rosebud – the local community care about this hospital, as do I,� he said. “Diagnostic imaging is an extremely valuable tool in modern medicine. For us to be able to provide a more comprehensive level of imaging makes me feel really good because I think then the patient is getting a better outcome. It also means patients don’t need to be transferred to Frankston Hospital.� The father of two says it is important to have work/life balance and fit

in time to exercise around his work and his family. He has competed in five Ironman Triathlons around the world: in Japan, Hawaii, and three in Melbourne over the full course: 3.8 kilometre swim, 180 kilometre cycle ride and 42.2 kilometre run. In 2015 he was number four on the All World rankings in the 30-34 age group and first in Australia. He is in training November’s Ironman Malaysia.

Mr Barbour trains at the Peninsula Aquatic Centre, Rosebud, PARC Frankston, and Mornington Secondary College, as well as Port Phillip swims. He says there are plenty of great runs on the peninsula, such as along the Two Bays trail, around Devil Bend reservoir, and to Mt Martha and back. “Being fit and active is really important for public health workers – yeah we preach good health and try to help people, but I think it’s important to

First ‘tech fest’ THE Mornington Peninsula and Frankston’s first entrepreneurship and technology festival starts on Friday with a business breakfast and a threeday “hackathon�. The event is a joint venture between the technology business hub Frankston Foundry, Mornington Peninsula Shire, Frankston City Council and sponsors including the state government’s start-up investment body LaunchVic. Kate Gittings of LaunchVic said the region’s first hackathon, PeninsulaHACK, aimed to “build solutions for regional problems such as high youth unemployment and job availability�. The three-day hackathon, 6pm Friday to 6pm Sunday, will see about 150 entrepreneurs, businesses and community leaders from Frankston and the peninsula “discuss and explore opportunities around the gig economy and the future of work�. (The gig economy is the term for a labour market of short-term contracts or freelance work rather than permanent jobs.) About 15 teams will pitch their ideas to a panel of judges, with winning teams taking a share of $6000 prize money. Other events include free and low-cost public workshops and talks covering topics such as the internet of things, artificial intelligence, augmented reality, and virtual reality. Speakers at the breakfast will include the state Minister for Small Business, Innovation and Trade, Philip Dalidakis; LaunchVic CEO Dr Kate Cornick; and technology entrepreneurs.

Assisted dying Eighty per cent of Victoria’s population want the right to have the choice of how they depart this world. We want dignity without suffering and less stress on our loved ones. Ten per cent want us to suffer and die in pain and in our own dirty nappy; 10 per cent don’t care. To all the Victorian parliamentarians and to all the religious groups, if you are against assisted dying, you can choose to suffer, it’s your decision. Eighty per cent of Australians are happy to let you suffer. Some say you deserve to suffer and some would like to make you suffer. Eighty per cent just want to be able to make our own choice on how we die. If your local member of parliament votes against this bill then they are expressing there opinion, not what the 80 per cent of their constituency wants. Let your member of the Victorian parliament know how you feel on this issue. Geoff Budge, Village Glen, Capel Sound

Liberal side effect I recently received a glossy brochure from Flinders MP Greg Hunt. In it there were several stories regarding federal grants given to local community groups such as bowls clubs, pony clubs and $200,000 towards CCTV in Rye. I thought this odd, given that this sort of support looks more like a state responsibility. With nothing better to do one cold and wet day, I went through the state Labor government’s 2017/2018 budget. Now I know why there is direct funding from Canberra. For 2018 I struggled to find any significant capital expenditure or service improvements for the electorate of Nepean [held by Liberal MP Martin Dixon]. I did notice that South East Water was making improvements to water treatment plants at Boneo and Somers and motorists will be pleased by more spending for speed camera upgrades on Peninsula Link. Maybe because Nepean is a Liberal held seat it gets neglected, although even when the seat was

marginal it was still deprived. With Labor holding power in Victoria for 15 out of the last 19 years, I fear for Nepean that this trend of neglect will continue. Chris Spillane, Blairgowrie

Feral calls On a recent Wednesday at about 7.15pm, [Flinders MP] Greg Hunt instigated a phone call to, it appears, all in his electorate, for an interview with himself and Josh Frydenberg. This call was not asked for by anyone in his electorate. I asked Telstra about the legality of doing this and was told that it was a federal initiative. Of course they would say this as they were getting paid for these thousands of unwarranted calls, all at taxpayers’ expense. Should such blatant political propaganda be allowed, and at the expense of the taxpayer? On another issue, we know there are a lot of foxes in this area and we know that Parks Victoria has a baiting program for areas under its control, such as the national parks. However, what about private properties? If one was to catch a fox on one’s property, legally and humanely, what to do? Parks Victoria, Mornington Peninsula Shire and the state government all refer one to the other. So it is left up to the property owner to dispose of, or release, this animal. And just how is this disposal done legally and humanely? I was told the shire could not do this as it is too expensive, which is odd as I believe many cats and dogs are regularly put down. I could not imagine they would get a influx of “foxes caught” to blow their budget. It’s just another “pass the buck” by authorities. Andrew Raff, Fingal

Gum problems To live in a nice green leafy area would be lovely. Back in the 1980s the Shire of Mornington planted gum trees on nature strips in estates such as Padua in the north east end of Mornington, presumably with this aim in mind. Unfortunately, gum trees do not really provide

a feeling of living in a green leafy area. I would describe it as having a drab and dry appearance. These trees are now quite large. They drop bark and branches, creating risk and unsightly mess. They provide only dappled shade. They send roots under footpaths into gardens causing the soil to be bone dry and preventing plants from thriving despite ample watering. This inhibits householders from putting effort into establishing their front gardens. The roots penetrate the soil surface on nature strips. They are unsightly and are forever posing a tripping risk to pedestrians. Many of these trees are quite large and can cause significant fear to householders during severe storms. I have seen these gum trees drop very large branches. Luckily, no one or property were underneath at the time. The roots also damage footpaths, curbing and front fences. The [former] shire was probably not to know about these ramifications from gum trees at the time of planting, but it would be really nice if [Mornington Peninsula Shire] council could heed the concern of residents now and allow their removal, where this is desired. I wonder if others are concerned about the gum tree on their nature strip? Janet Turnbull. Padua Estate, Mornington

Water waste Unpublicised and unread or unknown to most people, our state government just took delivery of 50 gigalitres of desalinated water from the Wonthaggi plant, in the middle of winter with the spring rains still to come and the dams already two thirds full. The cost was a $27 million thrown away. I think it was something to do with keeping the overseas investors financially afloat. It could have been 54 new houses gifted to families drowning in debt and despair. Brian A Mitchelson, Mornington

Unsafe barrier It is unbelievable that VicRoads is going to ex-

tend the so-called flexible safety barriers for the full length of the freeway to Rosebud. One does not need to be Einstein to understand that these so-called flexible wire barriers do not allow a vehicle, in particular a motorcycle, to disperse the thrust by skidding along the barrier. This so-called safety barrier could become a death trap by hitting the steel stanchions to which the wire is fixed. The only positive safety barrier is the original heavy corrugated steel barrier as fitted already on some sections of the freeway. This original barrier is the only one that allows for the vehicle or motorcycle to skid along. Surely that way is so much safer than hitting steel stanchions and not dispersing the crash? How can VicRoads see the flexible wire barriers with steel stanchions protruding beyond the wire being a safety barrier is beyond one’s comprehension. Gerry Shepherd, Dromana

Renovation rolled Toilet block No 177 is an uninspiring brick affair overlooking Fishermans Beach, Mornington. Open to the elements, apart from the cubicles, No 177 is equipped with a shower, basin, and attached to the cubicle walls, shiny, steel toilet roll holders. Some weeks ago the toilet roll holders disappeared, only to re-appear two days later affixed to the back of the toilet doors, thus making them nigh on impossible to reach when a person is sitting and the door is closed. Apparently not entirely happy with this new arrangement, someone has slammed one door back against the wall, causing the shiny steel toilet roll holder to smash and fall to the floor. I wonder if other such facilities across the Mornington Peninsula have also undergone similar radical renovation. No doubt lengthy studies, discussions and meetings with “team leaders” were held before the toilet block refurbishments. Oh! And they ugly scar left by the removal of the shiny steel contraptions has been painted over. Margaret Mackie, Mornington More Letters Page 35

OUR feet and legs are vital for mobility and balance and are the basis of most of our daily activities, so its no wonder most people suffer foot, knee or leg pain at some point in their lives. But what can you do about it? We asked the experts at Foot & Leg Pain Clinics to shed some light on common foot and leg concerns:  The most common concerns include: knee pain, injuries and arthritis; heel, shin and forefoot pain; ankle and achilles concerns.  Many conditions are misdiagnosed and incorrectly treated, so its important to find an experienced musculoskeletal or sports podiatrist to assist.  Bad foot posture can continually pull your body out of alignment, which can contribute to postural aches / pains and undue stress on joints and tissues.  Early symptoms for diabetes, arthritis, nerve and circulatory problems often show themselves initially in the feet.  Traditional treatments such as cortisone, anti-inflammatory medications and joint arthroscopies are now outdated for conditions such as foot and leg pain and arthritis, and have been found to delay healing and cause further tissue damage in many cases.  We now have effective, natural medical alternatives and treatments for such conditions. Regenerative therapies such as Prolotherapy and PRP (platelet rich plasma) are helping many to

heal injuries and assist degeneration.  Foot and leg problems left untreated usually get worse, however most foot & leg concerns can be addressed relatively easily and effectively with appropriate treatment. “By combining the latest regenerative therapies with a sound knowledge of musculoskeletal medicine, biomechanics, and load management strategies to assist stresses through joints and tissues, we can aid or eradicate pain, increase mobility, repair injury and regenerate tissues to assist arthritic concerns – naturally,” say the experts at Foot & Leg Pain Clinics. If you need assistance with foot or leg pain, Foot & Leg Pain Clinics have convenient clinic locations across Victoria including Rosebud and Mt. Eliza.

Ultimate Boutique Dentistry FOR over 30 years, Dr John Albery has been putting smiles on the faces of clients across the Mornington Peninsula, and continues with his boutique clinic, Dental Studio 2-Twenty. “With a combination of professional experience and the latest technology, we pride ourselves on providing each and every one of our customers with excellence in restorative and cosmetic dentistry,” says Dr Albery. “With very few exceptions, we can handle all of your dental needs in-house. That means you won’t have to waste time waiting and travelling for a referral. Instead, we provide everything you need in our modern practice and at an affordable price.” With Dental Health Week from August 7 – 12, Dr Albery says it is a great opportunity for education on good oral hygiene, and the effect diet has on our dental health. “Excess sugar in the diet has been blamed for increasing rates of dental decay in children as young as one,” said Dr Albery. “There have been new analyses saying that seven out of 10 packaged goods sold on supermarket shelves contain added sugar and there are a huge number of children that are admitted to hospital due to dental conditions that could be preventable.” Dr Albery says that good sugars are an important part of every person’s

diet like those found naturally in dairy, fruits and vegetables. “There is a big difference between natural sugars and the ones added during manufacturing,” he said. Currently there are calls for greater transparency on added sugar in packaged foods which dentists like Dr Albery support wholeheartedly. “It is things like soft drinks, cakes, pies, ice cream, pastries and process meats that contain the highest amount of added sugars,” he said. This year a Choice report found that if consumers could identify added sugars on food packs they could avoid 26 teaspoons of sugar each day. “If this was the case, the dental health of Australians would show a dramatic improvement,” said Dr Albery. Dental Studio 2-Twenty offers a boutique dental experience, with the latest technology, a brand new surgery, state of the art equipment, and the bonus of three decades of experience treating people. Dr Albery has undertaken advanced training in crown, bridge and implants dentistry, and completed his Advanced Diploma of Myotherapy in Myofascial Acupuncture. He is a founding member of the Australian Society of Dental Aesthetics and a founding member of the Peninsula Headache Clinic.

“As a professional team, we pride ourselves on our excellent customer service, as well as our expertise and state of the art dental technology. When you come to Dental Studio

2-Twenty, you don’t just get the very best in restorative and cosmetic dentistry – you get friendly service, personalised to suit your needs and budget,” says Dr Albery.

Oncology rehabilitation program ONCOLOGY Rehabilitation â&#x20AC;&#x201C; do you have a cancer diagnosis or have had treatment for cancer and feeling tired, lack energy and generally feel run down? We would love to see if we can help you. At St John of God Frankston Rehabilitation Hospital, our Oncology Rehabilitation Outpatient program is a 6 week, twice a week program that incorporates information sessions, meditation, tai chi, exercise and hydrotherapy, and itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s individually tailored to you, your needs and your goals. How it might help: The information sessions are interactive and discuss topics that can assist you in your day-to-day life, such as healthy food choices when you arenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t feeling the best, tips on managing stress, how to pace yourself to get through the day, and WKHEHQHÂżWVRIH[HUFLVH The meditation session, guided by Rivka, our Occupational Therapist, is a weekly 30-minute session to help you wind down and refocus, which complements the tai chi session that provides whole body movement while concentrating on the correct moves. It is a body and brain workout, so for 30 minutes you cannot think about anything else so it is a great way to reduce tension. Tai chi is also great for balance, posture and breathing. Exercise is an integral part of rehabilitation. Our bodies are meant to move so this session is 60 minutes

of light to moderate exercise with our Exercise Physiologist (EP), Sam. Our EP will assess you prior to starting to gauge your physical ability and ÂżQGRXW\RXUJRDOVVRKHFDQWDLORU your exercise regime. Exercise plays an important part in reducing cancer related fatigue and improving our quality of life. Hydrotherapy is new to oncology rehabilitation, but early research shows it is an effective method of exercise. The water is 34 degrees and while the water resistance provide DJUHDWZRUNRXWZHOHW\RXĂ&#x20AC;RDW around as part of your â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;cool downâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;, so it is a very relaxing session.

Just ask your specialist or GP for a referral to one of rehabilitation physicians who will complete a medical assessment for you to enter the program; you will then meet Rebecca, our Oncology Rehabilitation Nurse, Sam and Rivka who will guide you through the next 6 weeks.

LETTERS Continued from Page 12

Family violence I applaud the truthfulness and insights of Tony Nicholl (“Balance required” Letters 25/7/17) in his critique of the recent royal commission into family violence. Put succinctly, in the arena of family violence all of the men involved are evil brutes and deserve the gutter or jail; all of the women are angelic, innocent victims and “survivors”, and deserve every assistance. No consideration should be given to the instigation of events, the truth, or even if the woman herself uses violence. I know that when some women want to get rid of their husband or partner, the first weapon of choice is “domestic violence”. Use the police. This is definitely not to say that there are no brutes of men nor to defend them in any way. Long time married, I have always known most women to be lovely, charming, compassionate creatures; however, there are some bad ones, equally as bad as any violent male, gender being the only difference. Then there is the peril of the well known saying: “Hell hath no fury like a woman spurned”. It is always the children who suffer, having to call some new man “daddy” (where’s my real daddy?), or else being abandoned. The worst, cruellest fate, is a government institution. I have known many, many grandparents, even a great-grandmother, bringing up abandoned children. We don’t seek accolades or money, we just do it. None of us gets recognition, we don’t want it, not even an Australian of the year award. Brian A Mitchelson, Mornington

Welcome decision Hooray! The Rye Township has finally had common sense prevail - and now has some much needed money being spent on our boating and foreshore area. For too long we have had groups speak for the minority, in opposition to much needed improvements to the facilities of our foreshore. These improvements will now benefit locals for most of the year. It’s about time. Let’s hope the much-needed Rye foreshore plan can also be fulfilled in good time, as most locals want the area beautified for our benefit. It is such a unique area, in what it offers, and deserves to be a place where we can be proud to bring family and friends. Let’s be positive to achieve something - rather than nothing. Sam Crowder, Rye

Changing attitudes I won’t pretend to understand all the ins and outs of the proposed boat ramp extension at Rye. I don’t need to. Among our community are some of the most knowledgeable, passionate and experienced conservationists, businessmen and women and marine enthusiasts, we only need to listen and value their wisdom. These local experts divulged their knowledge in the [Mornington Peninsula Shire] council chambers in February this year. The priceless education I received in regards to local habitat, breeding of a rare dolphin species and daily visitation reminds me of just how magic and unique our bay is. It was clear, even among councillors, that the proposal was simply extraneous. I want council to know that if it overthrows the decision to sensibly develop the Rye boat ramp, against the will of the people, despite the overwhelming evidence of fragility in the immediate vicinity, it would be doing a huge injustice to the people it is expected to serve. I want councillors to know that politics is changing, that conducting their business with no regard for the people is a dying agenda. When I have a question about law, I ask a lawyer, do they assume knowledge on an area that local people have studied for decades? That’s incredibly reckless and indicates their inability to make informed decisions on our behalf. I am just about to have my first child. I hope that one day I can focus on growing my family, knowing that our best interests are being considered by our appointed council. Ryan Luckhurst, Balnarring

Boat ramp blues Rye is to become the home of the big boat ramp, the biggest on the Mornington Peninsula. With four ramps, an extra jetty and reconfigured reversing lanes it will be a gold plated facility, unrivalled on the bay.

Letters - 300 words maximum and including full name, address and contact number - can be sent to The News, PO Box 588, Hastings 3915 or emailed to: team@mpnews.com.au However, with 175 objections submitted to the [Mornington Peninsula Shire] council and with a petition that received almost 1400 signatures to stop the expansion, this is not a facility that has much support in the local community. The negative environmental impacts, the over investing in a facility that adequately copes with traffic apart from a few days a year, the increase in road traffic during peak periods and the lack of facilities that will cater for the inevitable extra traffic, coupled with the lack of collaboration with the resident community has made this process, and outcome, like an episode of Fawlty Towers crossed with Yes Minister or Utopia. Unfortunately for the residents of Rye it is a reality. We can’t get our roundabouts weeded, but we can have $700,000 spent on a boat ramp. From the Somers footpath, inaction on the southern peninsula aquatic centre, encroaching on the green wedge and now the big boat ramp, many residents are wondering who our councillors are working for? Not us it seems. Sarah Race, Tootgarook

Cash came first I was at the Rosebud meeting of Mornington Peninsula Shire last week and I’ll have to say I thought the councillors’ performance was shocking. It seemed to me that all they were interested in was keeping the [state government] money they received for the fourth boat ramp at Rye. The majority had no interest in the residents’ disagreements or protests, the marine environment or the many other well researched reasons why Rye would be better off without the fourth boat ramp. Faye Poll, Rye

No council concern I attended the [Mornington Peninsula Shire’s] Planning Services Committee meeting on Monday 17 July, and obviously councillors had already made up their minds. Councillors voting against the Rye community completely ignored submissions. How can they spend the Rye ratepayers’ money on something they don’t want? The Rye community did not support the building of the fourth boat ramp, we supported the upgrade of the three existing boat ramps. Councillors seemed to be concerned for the safety of the boating community whose members bring nothing to our town except for their rubbish. [There was] no concern for the safety of our children who use the beach and surrounding area. The Rye pier has such a wonderful marine habitat, which will now be destroyed with the expansion. Obviously the councillors who voted for this have no idea of the pleasure that our children and grandchildren receive when fossicking around the jetty not to mention the divers and snorkelers. Obviously you need a boat or jet ski for the councillors to have concern for your safety, shame on them. Thank you, [to councillors] Brian Payne and Frank Martin for taking their community representative roles seriously. Kerrie Brady, Rye

Safety ignored It is incredibly disappointing that money has won out over community in Rye. Councillors voted in favour of the fourth boat ramp predominantly because they did not want to knock back grant money of $588,000, despite the fact they could reapply for the grant with a new, properly consulted, plan in the next [funding] round. The community consultation process for this project has been extremely poor and has very little evidence to support expansion of the ramp. The shire constantly claims the extra ramp won’t increase usage but at the same time repeatedly states there will be an increase in demand in future due to increased population. And where will all those future boat and jet ski users go? Rye, the largest boat ramp on the Mornington Peninsula. The initial proposal was to upgrade all the boat ramps on the peninsula but now the idea seems to be to concentrate usage at Rye. This is definitely not what the community wants. We have so many concerns regarding noise, pollution, seahorse migration, dolphin safety, not to mention the safety of swimmers, snorkelers, divers and those on kayaks and SUPs, all consistently ignored by the shire. Our main beach area should be safe and enjoyable for everyone, not turned into a boating and jet ski hub for a vocal few.

Upgrading the current ramps, maintaining facilities, dredging regularly, a floating pontoon and improvements to traffic circulation will all reduce queuing times on the few days a year that they are a problem. Miranda Gillespie, Rye

Rise up against ramp A meeting of the Planning Services Committee on 17 July saw the Mornington Peninsula Shire present for a second time the planning application for works to the Rye boat ramp, including an additional ramp, new jetty and dredging. Unfortunately, after a good fight by eight concerned groups and citizens against the works and about 2000 signatures on a petition against the expansion of the existing footprint, all but three of the councillors present voted for its approval. The proposed $1.2 million of [state government] grant and shire money to be spent on a project to cater for the overflow of launching and retrieval traffic on the ramp only being necessary for approx four per cent of the year could be better spent on fixing up the foreshore. Such expansion will undoubtedly increase water traffic, and while our concerns are not associated with boat owners, we are fearful of an increase in jet skis bringing an increase in noise and safety issues, along with the general behaviour of their owners. It is now up to the ratepayer and resident to rise up and show their disdain. Get angry and show the shire we strongly disagree. Ring, write, or do something. Bob Martin, Rye

Undemocratic The council’s decision to approve the reconstruction and expansion of Rye boat ramp was bad for Rye and for democracy on the Mornington Peninsula. The decision was made despite 175 formal objections and more than 1000 people signing a petition against it, than those who signed an online petition for it. Rye was in effect told by councillors that “you are getting this whether you like it or not, and we don’t care whether its construction leads to more boats and jet skis coming to Rye, so long as more are not coming to our towns”. The argument by [former chief operating officer] Alison Leighton that because there is no extra parking in the proposal the usage can’t increase, ignores the existing problems and that extra overflow parking was a recommendation of the 2013 Rye Boating Precinct Plan. Her statement is also contradicted by the planning services meeting’s agenda which states that the proposal may lead to extra jet skis launching at Rye. What is to stop an officer in the future referring to the 2013 report and saying that there is in principle council support for taking more of the foreshore for boat trailer parking, when the vocal boating/jet ski community asks for it again? It now appears that many now accept that the planning process was flawed, but this made absolutely no difference to whether the project was approved. One councillor said “we need the government to pay their share for needed peninsula infrastructure, so we should not refuse their money”. Another said that it was a safety issue, but there was no evidence provided that this was a problem. With this standard of debate there is little wonder that many ratepayers are completely disillusioned with the council. Charles Anderson, Rye.

Deceptive approach Initially I was not against an expansion of boating facilities in Rye. The 2013 Rye Boating Precinct Plan changed my mind. It had many unpopular recommendations, such as questioning the popularity of the communitybuilt playground, the construction of two jet ski only ramps, a fourth boat ramp and an overflow trailer park. It then dishonestly said that the Rye community supported its recommendations. The council, knowing of the community’s opposition, then submitted the plan for an award, and used it to support the obtaining of a government grant. As the report had no statistics justifying its recommendations, I collected my own. Over five summers, I took hundreds of photographs of the boating precinct at different times of the day, and kept a diary of my observations. These were shared with the council but, as they did not support what [officers and councillors] wanted to hear, they were ignored. The major observations I made were that

although the ramp needed reconstruction, statistically there was no justification to build a fourth ramp. The council has used various arguments to justify its construction. When these arguments were countered, sometimes with facts from council’s own reports, it just moved on to another argument. This has never been just about jet skis, it has also been about the effect that any increased ramp usage will have on Rye, and about the poor council process. The latter now appears to be acknowledged, but councillors have decided they can’t refuse an offer of government money, despite the deceptive way it was obtained, and the substantial community opposition to it. It is also no surprise that the Sorrento-focussed Nepean Ratepayers Association supported expansion of the Rye boat ramp, as it was party to the 2007 Sorrento Boating Precinct Plan in which it was first suggested. David Trunfull, Rye

‘Infuriating’ comments Colin Watson’s comments on the fourth boat ramp at Rye are infuriating to a group working hard for a positive outcome on the boat ramp (“Shire ‘yes’ to Rye boat ramp plan” The News 25/7/17). As stated over and over, the objectors to the fourth ramp are not against repairing the ramps, we are in fact in favour of upgrading the existing ramps. The ramps have been left to languish in an unsafe condition - covered in algae, and with the two-yearly dredging now not done for five years. And this state of disrepair, caused by Mornington Peninsula Shire, is now being used to support expanding the ramp – a completely different issue. The only thing objectors are against is expanding the facilities; that is all. We have serious concerns about increasing boating and jet ski traffic in this fragile and highly used stretch of beach, one of the most popular stretches of beach on the peninsula. Colin Watson’s comment that it is “all about jet skis” is partially true as jet ski users cause most of the problems but, unfortunately, we can’t separate them from boats as under law they have the same rights. Nepean Ratepayers Association is a small group and not representative of the Nepean ward or the Rye community. Darren Danielson, Rye

Told what to do I have lived in Rye for 59 years, and for 36 of those was in business with my late husband. Rye has a history of local councillors “knowing best”, as we were very rarely consulted - just told what would be done, or found out as it was happening. This is how the boat ramp eventuated. Thrust upon us, ruining that part of the beach with trailer parking taking up much of the foreshore. I stress I am not opposed to repairing the ramp and the reconfiguring its three lanes - just the expansion to four lanes and extra jetty. If the two ward councillors of 2013 had voted against the plan as they said they would, we would not have had to go through all this. For the chairman of the Nepean Ratepayers Association - a small but predominantly Sorrento/Portsea group - to say it was a good result when so many Rye people opposed it, is nonsense. What right do they have to decide what is best for Rye? If the position was reversed, we would support them in their decisions as we have done in the past. I was very disappointed in the councillors only three out of the four local and nearby councillors present (one of the two Nepean councillors was absent), voted against the motion. The rest, from their questions, showed they had done no solid reading to understand the matter. Pauline E Powell, Rye

Go ahead ‘frustrating’ So frustrating for so many of us in the community that the council’s Planning and Services Committee decided to proceed with the expansion of boat launching facilities at Rye. The views of so many people seem to have been ignored. The concerns raised are serious, most specifically relating to the social and environmental impact on both the local community and the environment. All credit to all those people who felt strongly enough to raise their concerns. Harry Schwarz, Rye Southern Peninsula News 8 August 2017

100 YEARS AGO THIS WEEK...

“Tin kettlers” welcome newlywed Hantons Compiled by Cameron McCullough LAST Wednesday a band of “tin kettlers” went down to give the new bride and bridegroom, Mr and Mrs Hanton, a rousing welcome. The band was very hospitably entertained and a very pleasant evening was spent. *** ALL soldiers will be entertained at afternoon tea in the Hall this afternoon at the conclusion of the speeches in the Park. *** IT is the intention of Councillor Oates to call the ratepayers of the North Riding together at an early date to give a general resume of council matters during his last two terms of office extending over six years. The date will be fixed and notified by advertisement in our next issue. *** MORNINGTON Junction Progress Association (modern day Baxter) The monthly meeting of the above was held on Aug 1st. President - Mr Green (in the chair) Messrs Grant, Harley (V. Roberts, V. Stott, Hawken, McColl, Bowley, Dicker, H Male, Fulton, McCubbin, Marshall, Walsh, Butler, C. Young, Barclay, and Persson. Mr Jackson, secretary of the Co-operative Society at Somerville was also present. After the minutes and correspondence had been disposed of, Mr Marshall, in a very forcible speech, drew attention to the fact that we as a community were being very unfairly treated in respect to Council matters. After every heavy shower people wishing to get to the station from the east side, have to walk through water up to their boot tip. This, it was felt could not be tolerated any longer and a deputation consisting of Messrs Marshall, Green and Grant, were deputed to wait on the councillors at the Council Chambers and place the matter before them for their urgent consideration. Further council matters were dealt with, viz, redistribution of boundries of shire so that Mornington Junction, would get a better deal. Also the advisability of getting some one to represent us at the Council table. As it was too late to bring a man forward this time, and so as to help that one if necessary at next election, it was moved that a fighting fund be established and a levy of 6d per member per quarter was agreed on. Nominations for candidates to be called for in May of each year. It was moved that a local committee be formed to assist the repatriation committee and bring before them the suitableness of our district for returned soldiers. Tree planting in the streets was then reported on and Arbor Day fixed for August 18th. 35 trees are to be planted this year and named after the soldiers who have enlisted. Mr Roberts gave notice of motion that at next meeting he would move that member’s subscription be 2s 6d. The meeting then closed. A meeting of those present was then held to decide on a new name for the station and post office. The name Mornington Junction being considered unsuitable. 21 names were submitted to the exhaustive ballot of the members with the result that the name Irvine was chosen. Mr Dicker moved that the name Irvine suggested by the meeting be sent on to the progress association who will take the necessary steps to forward same to the proper quarters. Seconded by Mr Persson and carried. The meeting then closed. *** INSPECTION of Kananook Creek. VISIT BY MINISTER AND ENGINEER. At 10.30 last Thursday morning, Mr Adamson, Minister for Public Works, accompanied by Mr Kermode, the departmental Engineer visited Frankston for the purpose of inspecting Kananook Creek. They were met and conducted round by Crs Oates and Clements, Messrs Mason, Sambell

(Shire Engineer) Bradbury and Dr Maxwell. The party worked down from the Mile bridge, inspecting the creek at each street crossing and from Wells street to the mouth. Mr Bradbury & afterwards provided luncheon at the Fernery amidst most charming surroundings. In reply to the vote of thanks, tendered by Crs Oates and Clements, the Minister expressed his sympathy with the residents in their endeavour to improve Frankston and stated that Mr. Kermode would supply a full report for the consideration of the Minister. The latter then returned to the City at 1 p.m. *** SOMERVILLE Red Cross Society. The Jumble Fair held in the Hall on Saturday Aug 4th was most successful. The weather was good after the severe storm on Friday and everything went well without a hitch. The refreshment stall, under the capable management of Miss Barber was one of the most chick ever arranged in the district and its artistic and inviting appearance accounted for the roaring trade, being the largest takings for one day on record. Great praise is due to her band of workers. The product stall under Mrs Jas Murray realized £14. Hoopla by the syndicate with Mr Ted Gomm as “Tote” did a splendid trade, between £5 and £6 being taken without a penny expense. Ice cream and lollies managed by Mesdames White and Coop did a roaring trade. Fancy stall under Mesdames C. Grant and Iles sold all out at something over £5 with only 15s 3d expense. The cake stall managed by Mrs Gault and Misses Goodson and Laura Thornell also was cleared. The total takings being about £40 expenses £9. The President, Mrs Gault and secretary, Mrs G. Shepherd desire to thank all those who donated and assisted at the Fair. 11s 6d was donated to the Fair by a football match held in the park. *** ON Saturday night, 28th July, the Hastings Church of England Girls’ Guild gave a cantana, entitled “Snow White”, in the local Hall.

THE MEANING OF EXISTENCE... AND OTHER SHORT STORIES

Crushed by the Digital Hamster Wheel of the Gods By Stuart McCullough HOW quickly we become dependent. Like a lobster who doesn’t notice as the water heads towards boiling, I had no idea how much danger I was in. For years, I lived without you. It was, I think, a reasonably complete kind of life. I certainly managed to fill my time, more or less. Then we were introduced and everything about my life changed forever. New worlds opened up, galaxies appeared before my eyes and I was enriched beyond measure. How I ached to spend time with you, never suspecting that our connection might be so ….fragile. Netflix, you broke my heart. I didn’t see it coming. For some reason, I assumed that paying for a service meant that it would be forever ready to spring to my attention, serving all my televisual needs. One evening, I deposited myself on the part of the couch the dog was prepared to let me occupy and pointed the super-special remote towards the little magical box that sits on a shelf in the TV cabinet. I pressed ‘enter’ and watched as the thing I personally like to refer to as ‘the thinking wheel’ span and span and span. As I watched, I could almost feel myself travel through time. I knew it was struggling. I suspect it’s no coincidence that the spinning symbol used to indicate struggle so closely resembles a hamster wheel. Indeed, it’s hard not to picture the all-powerful cyber-hamster that must power the entire Netflix operation, its bionic limbs pumping like supercharged pistons as it generates enough power to fire up the new series of Gilmore Girls. But as the wheel kept spinning, it occurred to me that this was a wheel of misfortune. Then it appeared. As plain as the nose on a digital mega-hamster’s face, the screen simply informed me: ‘There is a problem connecting to Netflix – try again later’. What on earth are they talking about? Having grown up in an ‘off’ and ‘on’ kind of world, this new paradigm of ephemeral, unpredictable pleasure is more uncertainty than I can handle. When

they say there’s a ‘problem connecting to Netflix’, what kind of problem are we talking about? Emotional? Existential? Not returning phone calls? Waiting for the wind to die down? Surely, they could be more informative. Then came the invitation that’s more a slap to the head than it was a cause for hope – ‘try again later’. It’s rare that I feel the need to summon up the spirit of Veruca Salt but I think I agree with her in that I want it now, not later. Had I wanted it later, I probably wouldn’t have gone to the trouble to make the dog move over, sitting down and pointing the magic stick at the box before waving it about like Harry Potter’s last wand.

And what, pray tell, do they mean by ‘later’? The time it takes to make a fresh cup of tea? A couple of hours? Next year sometime? No one can say. The whole thing is stricken with uncertainty. And that’s exactly it; there’s no information and no one to ask. It’s all entirely abstract. Perhaps this is what they really mean by ‘virtual reality’. And it’s not as though there’s anyone I can complain to. The world wide web is full people, with nary a soul to speak to. The answer is simple: I must take matters into my own hands and build my own Netflix. If the real one can’t be relied upon, then I must rely on my own raw, naked ingenuity to provide the an-

swer. Granted, my history of ‘DIY’ technological fixes is, at best, pretty patchy. There’s the time I tried to build my own digital alarm clock using an empty cereal packet. That thing saw me turn up late for school for six years running. Or my effort to create my own flux capacitor using a broken food processor. The only thing that travelled through time was my dignity as I regressed a good decade or more. And the less said about my attempt to build my own national broadband network using a bar of soap, some string and half a tube of hundreds and thousands, the better. Suffice to say, the blessed thing is yet to be of any real use. And even if this makes it largely indistinguishable from the actual national broadband network is beside the point – I know I can do better. With Netflix collapsing into the virtual foetal position without any outward sign that it might regain its sense within the foreseeable, I was at a loss. My remote hand - so conditioned to pointing and waving - sat idle. My preferred buttonpushing thumb – which is so muscle-bound that, from a distance, it looks like a bald Arnold Schwarzenegger during his Mr. Universe era but without the lolly bags – wilted on the couch cushion. Instead, I turned to the dog and the dog (whose favourite program is currently Antiques Roadshow) turned to me, at which point we decided to chase each other around the yard until one of us got tired and felt like throwing up. Nausea aside, it’s been ages since I’ve felt so alive. So, Netflix, I’m beginning to re-evaluate our relationship. If you can’t be relied up to work when I need you most, then I’m not sure I can give you my loyalty, much less my undying affection. I realise that I’m probably adding to your already considerable problems. The irony being, of course, that while the magic box was having trouble connecting to Netflix, my connection with Netflix entered a terminal decline. So be it. The dog and I will be outside. stuart@stuartmccullough.com

Without Edwards, Pythons lose their power PENINSULA LEAGUE

By Toe Punt PINES has lost four games on the trot in MPNFL Peninsula Division and is now in danger of missing the top five all together. After sitting a game clear at the top of the table at the midway mark of the season, the Pythons have fallen in a slump, generating the obvious question, â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;is it a case of no Aaron Edwards, no Pinesâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;? While the brainstrust at Pines will have you believe that this isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t the case, the fact is that Pines has not been able to win a match since the best forward in the game went down with a season-ending knee injury four weeks ago against Langwarrin. On that day against the Kangas, Dale Tedge went to full forward, booted a handful and the Pythons had a strong win. On the back of that, coach Pat Swayne said team structures would stand up and while Aaron was a great player, there were other avenues to explore that could fill the void. We all love Swayneâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s optimism, however, we all know that that is just smoke and mirrors. The fact is that the most dominant forward line in the competition is minus arguably the best player in the competition. This leaves the 2016 league MVP Tim Bongetti one out down there. Mornington coach Chris Holcombe said on the RPP Footy Show on Saturday morning that Pines were â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;kidding themselvesâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; if they believed Edwards not playing wouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have an effect. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a star and they are a much better team with him there. They stretch defences. Of course heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a massive loss and thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s little point denying it,â&#x20AC;? Holcombe said. Chelsea coach Brett Dunne agreed. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll need to look at the way they

YCW trouble: Bonbeach were held to just five goals for the match against Frankston YCW. Picture: Andrew Hurst

are using Guy (Hendry) and see if they can push him forward,â&#x20AC;? Dunne said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s nice to have him playing as a defender but they need him playing forward to help Bongetti,â&#x20AC;? Dunne said. On Saturday Pines was beaten by Seaford by a goal, which kept Seafordâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s finalsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; hopes alive. Frankston YCW flexed its muscles and restricted Bonbeach to just five goals on their own turf. The Sharks were held to just one goal in the first half but had a strong

third quarter and found themselves just eight points down at the last change. The Stonecats, with the aid of the breeze, stepped it up a notch in the last and won 10.10 (70) to 5.9 (39). Mt Eliza is also still in the running for a spot in the finals after turning around an ordinary first half to beat Karingal 12.10 (82) to 9.8 (62). The Bulls led by three points at half time before the Redlegs booted 10 goals to six after the change. Karl Lombardozzi was superb for

the winners while Dan Gormley was at his best with three goals. Langwarrin came back to earth with a thud, smashed by EdithvaleAspendale, who are now a game clear in third place. The Kangas were held goalless in the opening half before completely dominating play in the third quarter and booting 5.10 to 3.1. It should have been 10.5. The Eagles slammed on seven last quarter goals through to win 16.13

(109) to 5.18 (48). The Eagles had 12 goal kickers. Mornington booted four goals to one in the last quarter to beat Chelsea by a goal, 11.16 (82) to 10.16 (76). Warwick Miller was a star for the Dogs again with four goals while Dave Willett booted four also for the Gulls. Mornington is on the look out for a new coach after Chris Holcombe told the club he couldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t commit the time next season.

Eagles crash land in race to finals Slim win: Red Hill got above Devon Meadows by just a point on Saturday. Picture: Scott Memery

NEPEAN LEAGUE By Toe Punt SOMERVILLE is no longer in the race for MPNFL Nepean Division finals after being overrun by a fast finishing Dromana on Saturday. With both teams being locked together on 32 points on the ladder, along with Red Hill, it was always going to be near impossible for the loser of Saturdayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s game to make it. The Eagles have now fallen a game behind Dromana and Red Hill with just two games remaining. While Somerville is out of the equation, the race is hotting up between Red Hill (fifth place) and Dromana (sixth). There is less than one percent separating the sides on the ladder. Dromana faces Pearcedale and Rye in the final home and away games of the season. Red Hill finishes with Crib Point and Tyabb. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s all going to come down to percentage. Red Hill was lucky to escape from Devon Meadows with a win, falling over the line by the smallest of margins, 8.15 (63) to 8.14 (62). At half time the Hillmen led by 22 points and Devon Meadows was goal-

less at that point in the match. However, with injuries to Dan McNamara (concussion), Tom McEnroe (hamstring) and ruckman Harry Wynne-Pope, the Hillmen were lacking rotations and barely hung on. The Meadows drew level late in the last quarter and had the ball deep inside their attacking 50 metre line when the siren went, however, they never got their noses in front. Jono Ross was superb for the Hillmen again with four goals while Jonah Siverson and Chris Irving were at their best. Scores were level at half time between Dromana and Somerville. However, some subtle changes that saw Dromanaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Beau Cosson and Ethan Johnstone moved to half back and Rikki Johnstone forward saw the match turn. Sam Guerts was sensational across four quarters also for the Tigers as they booted nine goals to four in the second half to win 15.11 (101) to 10.9 (69). Andrejs Everitt made the most of his limited opportunities for Somerville with five goals. Hastings breathed some life into the 2017 season with a hard-fought game against Sorrento. The Blues got within two points of

the Sharks in the last quarter before going down by 28 points, 13.13 (91) to 9.9 (63). Leigh Poholke was superb for the Sharks with four goals while Max Gardner and Danny Stephenson were also outstanding. Ricky Ferraro, on the back of being named the new Hastings coach for seasons 2018 and 2019, was Hastingsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; best, along with Shaun Foster. Pearcedale recorded a comfortable 57 point victory against Tyabb, 16.15 (111) to 8.6 (54). Pat Heijden booted five goals for the Dales while Harry Prior dominated through the middle. Rosebud continued its domination of the opposition with a 19.17 (131) to 3.3 (21) win against Crib Point. Keegan Downie booted six goals and Dale Stephens and Fraser Hustwaite dominated for the Buds. In the final game, Frankston Bombers restricted Rye to just one goal in each of the first and second halves to win 19.16 (130) to 2.10 (22). James Degenhardt booted three majors for the Bombers and proved how important he is to this team while Sam Fox and Mitch Bosward dominated at the stoppages. Joel Wills and Harry Wilson were Ryeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s best.

SOUTHERN PENINSULA scoreboard

Dolphins are back from the deep By Toe Punt FRANKSTON Dolphins will return to the VFL competition next season after having their licence application approved by AFL Victoria. The Dolphins were stripped of their licence in 2016 after the club fell into voluntary administration under a massive debt of more than $1 million. The club has been fighting hard since that day to bring together key people and businesses to put together a strong case to re-enter the competition. Their application was submitted last month and granted on Friday

afternoon. The application was spearheaded by former Hawthorn champion and recruiter Gary Buckenara. The pitch to re-enter included 1200 memberships, all sold for $50. The application was also based on the fact that the club would form ‘closer relationships with football clubs across the peninsula’. The truth of the matter is that the Dolphins will only avoid going back to where it came if they fully embrace the MPNFL competition. The MPNFL desperately needs and

deserves to have its own VFL side. There are at least 15 players currently playing in the MPNFL who are playing VFL footy right now. The likes of Anthony Bruhn, Tom Baker, Anthony Barry, Sam Fowler, Lachy Wallace, Danny Allsop, BJ Credlin, Mitch LaFontaine and James Freeman are all VFL-listed players at the likes of Bulldogs, Casey, Collingwood, Richmond and Northern Blues. It makes sense for them to be representing their own VFL team locally. The Stingrays who are not drafted also need a pathway to keep their

AFL dream alive. Let’s just hope the club has spent as much time understanding why it got itself into a $1M hole in the first place as it did working on a submission to re-enter – no local club support, no membership, no spectators, no success. The Dolphins need to be a representative of the MPNFL, not an elitest group that works against and alienates local clubs – that’s the previous history of the Frankston Dolphins. It’s time to wipe the slate clean. It should change its name to Penin-

sula Dolphins, a true reflection of the area it represents. The lack of a VFL Development League next season will support the case to bring the Dolphins and local clubs together. A squad of 35-40 should be selected at the beginning of the year, 22 are then selected each week to represent the Dolphins and the remaining 13-18 go back to their home club every weekend. All of the clubs would support that and more importantly, the people they want to come through the gate to support the Dolphins.

Langy seven points clear with four to play SOCCER

By Craig MacKenzie THE depth of Langwarrin’s squad proved crucial in Saturday’s comefrom-behind 3-1 win over Caulfield United at Lawton Park. Star striker Liam Baxter had to be stretchered off in the 53rd minute with a hamstring injury and classy central defender Kieron Kenny had to be helped off 11 minutes later with a knee injury. Baxter is expected to miss up to three weeks while the extent of Kenny’s injury will be assessed this week. Baxter and Kenny are among a group of visa players who have powered Langy to a seven-point lead on top of State 1 South-East and with four games remaining Gus Macleod’s men are red-hot favourites to clinch the title. That would trigger the club being offered promotion to Victoria’s elite National Premier League set-up which currently allows just two visa players per club. While no announcement has been made the word is that Langy may give those spots to Connor Belger and Paul Speed. They were signed late last year from English club AFC Liverpool on the recommendation of ex-Langy marquee player and former England youth international Kevin Townson. Belger’s display on Saturday was the driving force behind Langy’s eventual success. He played up front in the first half then dropped into a central midfield role in the second period and his ability to wrong-foot and glide past opponents at will, initiate attacks with penetrating passes into Langy’s attacking third while also being a serious goal threat via his lethal left foot stamped him as the match’s most valuable player. Gangly Caulfield striker Cort Kibler-Melby’s looping header sailed over the head of Langy keeper Robbie Acs and into the net to open the scoring in the 16th minute but Kenny’s powerful header from Baxter’s freekick in the 26th minute made it 1-1. Four minutes into the second half a Kibler-Melby header was headed off the line by John Guthrie then Macleod was forced to bring on Nabil Mozaffaruddin and Navin Velupillay for Baxter and Kenny while also replacing towering central midfielder Mat Luak with Sergio Yanez. The deadlock was broken in the 81st minute when a superb Yanez cross from the right was headed home by Mozaffaruddin and the large Langy crowd erupted. In the 91st minute a stunning Yanez volley was acrobatically tipped over by Caulfield keeper Dennys Martin but in the 99th minute Belger sent

Mighty “Moza”: Young Langwarrin striker Nabil Mozaffaruddin put his side ahead on Saturday. Picture: John Punshon Aaran Currie through and although Martin got a hand to Currie’s clever chip he was helpless to stop the ball from nestling in the back of the Caulfield net. During the pre-season doubts were raised over Currie’s workrate but the teenager has been able to turn his game around and now is a potent attacking force brimful of confidence. Mornington too is a confident outfit as shown by its commanding 4-0 win over fourth-placed Warragul United at Dallas Brooks Park on Saturday. Adam Jamieson’s outfit hit the mark in the 20th minute with a header from livewire forward Wayne Gordon and regular scorer Sammy Orritt made it 2-0 in the 26th minute with a firsttime strike from Ryan Paczkowski’s cutback from the right. When Paczkowski headed home at 8 August 2017

the near post from a Gordon corner in the 36th minute the contest was over. Paczkowski added a second late in the second half to complete the rout. Mornington travels to Lawton Park to take on the league leader on Saturday 19 August in the most anticipated clash on the peninsula in recent times. Harry McCartney reports that Frankston Pines all but assured itself of safety in State 2 South-East with Saturday’s 1-0 away win over bottom side Seaford United. An 87th minute winner from Graham Hill was all that separated the local rivals. The result leaves Seaford staring into the abyss as Pines skip six points clear of relegation. Peninsula Strikers gained what may prove to be an important point when it drew 0-0 away to Old Scotch

in their State 2 South-East clash on Saturday. Referee Yoav Fisher sent off Tom Hawkins for serious foul play in the 32nd minute forcing Strikers to battle with 10 men for the remainder of the contest. The result maintains Strikers’ twopoint lead over second-bottom Doncaster Rovers which drew 2-2 with Heatherton United last weekend. State 3 South-East promotion candidate Skye United hosted a strong Monbulk Rangers outfit on Saturday and eventually went down 1-0. Steve McCrae’s header midway through the first half was enough to settle the issue in a dour affair. However Skye remained in second spot after Brandon Park slipped up against ninth-placed Middle Park with a shock 2-1 loss. Baxter’s State 4 South promotion hopes are slim after Saturday’s 1-0 loss to title contender Springvale City. But departing coach Roy Kilner was proud of his side’s determined display. “We were awesome and I couldn’t have asked for more,” said Kilner. The decisive moment came in the 72nd minute when Adem Alicevic broke into a one-on-one with Baxter keeper Francis Beck and slotted home the winner. The first half had been a tight affair with Springvale rattling the bar, Beck making two good saves and striker Mark Pagliarulo blasting a left-foot effort over from a good position. Alan Lipsett and Jake Kidder were forced into goal-line clearances in the second half and Baxter’s claims for a penalty in the 86th minute were waved away by referee Pat Couty. The result leaves Springvale on top of the table on goal difference from Bayside Argonauts with Monash Uni and Dandenong South two points behind them. Rosebud Heart hammered visitor Endeavour Hills Fire 6-0 in their State 4 South fixture on Saturday. Heart midfielder Will O’Brien opened the scoring in the fourth minute when he skinned two defenders and hit a well-placed low drive past Endeavour keeper Stuart Tolmie. Blake Hicks made it 2-0 in the 18th minute with a curling left-foot shot into the top far corner and two minutes later a Mikey Turner corner was headed against the bar by Daniel Hodge and Dave Greening headed home the rebound. Greening broke through and made it 4-0 in the 31st minute and in the 61st minute Hodge buried his header from Turner’s corner to make it 5-0. A superb ball by Hicks in the 68th minute picked out Greening who flicked the ball over a defender’s head then unleashed a left-foot volley that nearly took the net off to seal his hat-trick.

Greening has now officially scored 26 league goals this season and five goals in cup matches. Endeavour’s dismal day was complete in the 80th minute when Gilbert Palmire’s penalty attempt was saved at full stretch by Heart custodian Sean Skelly. State 5 South outfit Somerville Eagles went down 5-0 to title contender Sandown Lions on Saturday. A hat-trick to Dak Kong and goals from Math Thowat and substitute Duol Kuei kept Sandown on top of the league ladder. If WNPL side Southern United needed confirmation of onfield improvement this season it came on Saturday at Centenary Park when it went down 2-1 to league leader South Melbourne. Two contentious penalties, a controversially disallowed Courtney Heuston goal in the first half and a second half largely controlled by Southern were hallmarks of its gritty display. South Melbourne was 2-0 up after 11 minutes thanks to a double from Melina Ayres, her first coming from the penalty spot. The persistence of Southern youngster Savanna Anastopoulos paid off in the 52nd minute when she reduced the arrears and although South Melbourne was awarded a second penalty Southern keeper Christine Fonau made a superb save. Southern’s under-18s lost 5-0 while the under-15s lost 4-2 with Giulia Mazzeo scoring four goals while Anastassia Pusca and former Traralgon City star Monique Lapenta replied for Southern. The under-13s continued their march towards the title with a dominant 7-0 victory over fourth-placed South Melbourne. Southern’s goals came from Candy Kilderry (2), Danica Vukcevic, Rhys McKenna, Taylah Hennekam, Charli Phillips and an own goal from South’s Erica Arenius.

Mordialloc “bounce back” with dominant victory By Ben Triandafillou THE Mordialloc women’s development side have hit back after suffering their first loss for the season against Murrumbeena in Round 10. The Bloods (13.11.89) returned with an 89-point victory over Edithvale-Aspendale (0.0.0) at Ben Kavanagh Reserve, Mordialloc on Sunday 30 July. While Mordialloc suffered their first loss for the season to Murrumbeena in the previous round of the Southern Football Netball Women’s Development League, coach Natty Cardamone said they weren’t too fazed by it and actually learned a lot from it. “We always knew Murrumbeena were going to be a big ask but we weren’t too fazed to have a loss, it’s actually something we probably needed,” she said. “We had a few players out so it was good to

see everyone step up and give everything they had against Murrumbeena. “It didn’t affect our morale so we were ready to bounce back against Edi-Asp.” Mordialloc dominated throughout the match with T. Rosenquist having an all-time best performance kicking a total of four goals with J. Miller kicking three goals. Mordialloc is set to face Murrumbeena again in round 13 where they’ll travel to Murrumbeena Park, Murrumbeena on Saturday 12 August kicking off at 10:15am.

Winning return: Mordialloc Women’s football side return with a victory after a narrow defeat at the hands of Murrumbeena. Picture: supplied

Lifesavers recognised for dedicating their lives By Ben Triandafillou MEMBERS of the lifesaving and aquatic community from the Mornington Peninsula were awarded for their dedication to saving lives at the 14th annual Life Saving Victoria Award of Excellence on Saturday 29 July. More than 280 guests, including Victorian lifesavers, aquatic industry members and dignitaries, attended the gala event. Bonbeach Life Saving Club collected three of the four major awards with Lloyd Thomas from Bonbeach LSC being awarded the John Wishart Memorial Medal as Lifesaver of the Year for his ‘outstanding contribution to lifesaving’. Bonbeach LSC was also presented with Outstanding Achievement of the Year for their 2017 CALD Surf Rescue Certificate Program, the Volunteer Assessor of the Year which was awarded to Stephanie Thomas Reindel and the Volunteer of the Year award which went to Dawn Walterfang. President’s Certificates were presented to Joshua Ritchie-Crichton from Gunnamatta SLSC and Kieran Hanley from Rosebud and McCrae LSC for helping save the life of a man who suffered a heart attack at a cricket match earlier this year.

Samantha Howe from Point Leo SLSC was named Athlete of the Year with Tamara Brawn, also from Point Leo SLSC, collecting the award for Competition Official of the Year. Greg Schmidt of Mentone SLSC was the recipient for the Nipper Program Volunteer of the Year, and Mount Martha LSC was awarded the Patrol Efficiency Club of the Year. Portsea SLSC also collected awards with Rebecca Gould earning the Membership and Leadership Development Service Award and Dr Natalie Hood earning a Life Membership. Life Saving Victoria’s President, Tom Mollenkopf, paid tribute to the nominees and winners for their ongoing commitment to the lifesaving movement. “This special event recognises and celebrates the exceptional achievements our dedicated volunteers, staff, and members of the broader aquatic community make throughout the year,” he said. “Everyone in the organisation takes great pride in the work they carry out, and this is a wonderful way to acknowledge those who go above and beyond to contribute to all aspects of lifesaving in Victoria.”

By Ben Triandafillou PENINSULA Boxing has made another dent in the Australian boxing scene with all three of their boxers making it to the finals of the Australian Elite Golden Gloves in Western Australia on Friday 28 July. Representatives Jack Gipp, April Franks and 2016 Rio Olympian Jason Whateley left nothing in the ring to return home with two gold championship belts. Jack Gipp, who hadn’t fought since the Youth World Championships in Russia last year, made a dominant return, beating one of the local Western Australian favorites, Keira Ruston, on the Friday night. Gipp went on to defeat another tough Western Australian boxer, Zi Foo, in the final of the Men’s Middle weight-division (75kg), taking the belt in the first round. “Jack beat two of the favorites in the tournament quite convincingly and in the process won fighter of the tournament,” Peninsula Boxing head-coach Marcos Amada said. “He’s been away since November last year so he could recoup and get his head together, so it’s great to see him back and firing.” Whateley, who recently earned a silver medal at the Elite Men’s Oceania Championships in Queensland, went straight through to the finals of the Men’s heavy-weight division (91kg) on the Saturday night due to a lack of opponents. “Whateley fought in the straight final against Western Australian local, Brandon Rees, and like Jack was very dominant in winning his belt,” Amada said.

April Franks also took to the ring on the Friday night defeating Western Australian boxer, Ricki Beatson, in her ninth fight of her career. Franks then went on to face an experienced Queensland boxer, Skye Nicolson, in the final of the Women’s Bantam weight-division (52-56kg) and was defeated in a hard-fought battle. “Nicolson has had just over 100 fights, earned a bronze medal at the world titles and is an ambassador for the 2018 Commonwealth Games, so it was a big ask for someone who was going into her 10th fight,” Amada said. “She did an exceptional job. She lost the fight but she probably got more out of that fight than she had in her past matches.” Franks and Gipp are now preparing for their first lot of Victorian titles on 12 August in the lead-up to the Commonwealth Games. “April won’t be going to the Commonwealth Games because of the weight divisions at the moment for the women which don’t suit her,” Amada said. “We have been prepared for this and have made sure this year was a development year for her so she can experience boxing at the top level.” Whateley will head to Hamburg, Germany for the World Boxing Championships on the 25 August.

Top performance: Peninsula Boxers, Jason Whateley, April Franks, Jack Gipp and head-coach Marcos Amada, returned home with two championship belts. Picture: supplied
