‘‘All of the [original] owners were notified there was a review happening and the information was on our databases to show they were being looked at but some properties have changed hands in that period and the new owners were not notified that a review was in process,’’ he said. They then objected to their

homes being included in the overlays as they had purchased them with the intention of demolishing and rebuilding the houses. ‘‘It was felt it was unfair in that sense as some property owners had already incurred costs in drawing up plans for future development,’’ Mr Lloyd said. While none of the owners had applied for demolition approval, they had all indicated that was their eventual intention, he said. ‘‘The council’s decision doesn’t alter the fact that they are significant heritage places so if the owners decided to keep them we would be delighted.’’ The extensive heritage review of properties within the shire will result in an extra 100 properties being added to heritage overlays. The review is being conducted in four parts, with the first focusing on Mt Eliza, Mornington and Mt Martha. The next stage will focus on the area between Dromana and Rye. Mr Lloyd said heritage overlays on properties made it harder for owners to demolish or make major alterations to the exterior of properties. He said the council offered a number of incentives to owners of heritage properties including reduced rates, grants for repairs and a heritage advice line.

Shire heritage and urban design manager Simon Lloyd said each of the houses had been sold during the review and the current owners had not been informed about the prospective changes.

THREE Mornington properties could be demolished despite being found to have significant heritage value. Mornington Peninsula Shire will allow them to be removed as the new owners had not been told the buildings faced possible heritage overlays being imposed after a review. Mornington and District Historical Society president Diane White said it would be sad to see the properties go but unfortunately not everything could be saved. ‘‘It is changing the environment of Mornington,’’ she said. ‘‘The more we give in, the less we have.’’ Ms White said the society did not have the power to enforce heritage preservation. ‘‘A lot of the places are modest places that were occupied by residents who had an input in the town but they are just humble houses and aren’t deemed important enough to warrant being kept,’’ she said. ‘‘There is a lot of pressure for modern development on the peninsula. ‘‘I can’t see why, just because we are on the beach, we are different to areas like Hawthorn that have been able to retain more of their heritage properties.’’ Shire councillors voted last Monday week to have the three Mornington properties — in Alfred, Barkly and Bath streets,

Libs promise high-speed broadband BY ALECIA PINNER THE broadband war of words intensified last week when the federal opposition promised to push highspeed broadband to Mornington and Frankston if elected in September. During a tour of the new Quest development at the Peninsula by the Bay centre last Tuesday, opposition communications and broadband spokesman Malcolm Turnbull told the Weekly that Mornington would receive high-speed broadband within three years if Tony Abbott became prime minister. “Areas of greatest need would be prioritised for broadband, particularly commercial areas like Frankston,” Mr Turnbull said. Mr Turnbull said that under a Coalition government, the Mornington and Frankston central activities areas would receive broadband with an average speed of 50 megabits (per second) and a minimum speed of 25 megabits within three years. Under this plan, faster fibre optic cable would be rolled out to the node,

rather than to every household, meaning internet speeds would be slower than under the current plan. “The 25 megabit minimum will enable a household to stream four high definition videos at the same time. It is a very high speed . . . the savings will be very considerable. Broadband will be an estimated $300 a year cheaper under us,” Mr Turnbull said. Residents and businesses could “opt in” and pay for fibre optic cable “to their doors” if they felt they required higher speed internet connection, although most households would not need it. He said Labor had set a huge task by promising to run the fibre optic cable to each home. “The Labor broadband plan hasn’t ground to a halt, but it has come pretty close to it. The project is hugely behind and one of the big reasons is that it is painfully slow to take fibre down every street. Under the approach we’ve got, in built up areas you don’t have to do anything at the premises. ‘‘Our approach will ensure

Speedy promise: Dunkley federal MP Bruce Billson and Malcolm Turnbull at Peninsula by the Bay for last week’s broadband rollout promise. Mornington and Frankston get very fast broadband, much sooner at much less cost.” Earlier this month, Broadband, Communications and the Digital Economy Minister Stephen Conroy accused Mr Abbott and Mr Turnbull

of lying to regional Australians about who would receive the NBN. ‘‘Instead of running a scare campaign, the Coalition should admit that their broadband policy shortchanges the regions,’’ Mr Conroy said. ‘‘Under the coalition, people in

regional and rural Australia will have to pay more for broadband than people living in the cities. ‘‘And if families and businesses in the regions want world class broadband, they will have to pay up to $5000 to get it.”

Record crowd pays Anzac homage BY SAMANTHA ROBIN THOUSANDS turned up to Anzac Day services at Mornington to pay their respects to Australian troops. More than 1000 people attended the dawn service and about 2000 were at the main service, following the march. Mornington RSL member John Wilson said he was heartened by both turnouts, which surpassed previous years and was up by more than 50 per cent on last year. ‘‘It was great to see lots of youngsters there. They will be the bearers of the tradition in the future so it’s good to see them showing a big interest in the day,’’ Mr Wilson said. The gunfire breakfast was well attended at the RSL, with more than 300 people enjoying meals. The traditional game of two-up was played as returned servicemen and women reminisced of their time served and the younger generation paid tribute to their sacrifice. The Hastings dawn service, march and main service were well attended with more than 400 people turning up to each of the services and 300 to the gunfire breakfast. A local choir sang the Lord’s Prayer and members of the navy also attended.

WARNING

Lasting memorial: Youngsters look at the Mornington honour roll memorial before the dawn service.

Record turnout: Part of the crowd at the dawn service in Mornington.

Hastings RSL president Keiren Gallagher said there were more younger people there than in previous years. ‘‘It was great to see the school kids and Scout groups attending the services,’’ he said.

There was a march from the Hastings RSL to the cenotaph for the main service, which had a guard of honour, bugler and piper. ‘‘It all came together well and everyone enjoyed themselves.’’

‘‘Next year is going to be even bigger,’’ Mr Gallagher said. For more pictures of the Mornington dawn service, go to peninsulaweekly.com.au.

IMPORTANT COMMUNITY ALERT “NO TIP FOR THE ARTHURS SEAT ESCARPMENT, DROMANA”

WARNING

When the Ross Trust (Owners of Peninsula Waste Management and Hillview Quarries) purchased the Old pioneer Quarry at Boundary Rd Dromana, it was with the knowledge that the Mornington Peninsula Shire Council had in 1996 chosen the site as a preferred option for the next tip. Instead of protecting the environment they are prepared to create a “TOXIC TIMEBOMB” for future generations to clean up and manage. PWM would have us believe that they are doing the community a favour by having a tip at this site. Do not believe it, they are only interested in the financial gain. In 1998 the Mornington Peninsula Waste Management Group was formed and they have continued to actively promote the site ever since. They have not been progressive and proactive in seeking up to date alternative methods. The MPRWMG has only ONE member Council, namely the MPSC and 5 MPSC Councillors are directors of the Group. How impartial will they be when it is time to consider an application for the tip? The EPA have already given tentative approval (subject to a works approval) for the site to be used as a tip even though the site does not meet all its siting guidelines. Why have they ignored their own guidelines?

Please consider some of the following facts. • The use of so called “best practise technology” for the liner may be applicable in normal landfill sites, however this site has extremely steep sides and its base approximately 25 metres below the existing water table. It will be a case of trial and error with this site. What will the errors cost the community when things go wrong? • The proposed tip is at the head of “Sheepwash Creek” which flows into the Bay. Any leachate leakage not collected will end up in the Bay. The Draft Risk Assessment for the site admits that there is likely to be some leachate leakage through the liner, this is even without considering what happens if there is a liner failure. Leachate is a toxic fluid with an unknown chemical makeup. Its composition depends on the type of waste being dumped. • The tip is located on the boundary of the Arthurs Seat State Park. What will be the impact on the native fauna with an increase in vermin, seagulls and windblown rubbish? • The nearest dwelling is according to the Draft Risk Assessment only 480 metres from the tip cell, this is under the required EPA distance offset of a minimum 500 metres. • There are 21 registered bores within a 2 km radius of the site. What will the impact be on these with the continual groundwater extractions at the tip site? • Peninsula Waste Management state that ABOUT 70 trucks per day will use the site. Given that the expected tonnage deposited will triple within 3 years, how may trucks will this be? Also how many truck will be used in the delivery of lining and cover material? What will the impact be on Boundary and Collins Road then? Certain sections of Collins Road are already dangerous. • The Draft Risk Assessment highlights 2 high risk and 18 medium risk elements. These include litter in the waterway, vermin, odour and leachate leakage to groundwater. Why are these being ignored? • Peninsula Waste Management believe that the tip will not have a visual impact on neighbours, they obviously have not been to many neighboring properties. • No compensation mechanism exists for neighbours who suffer from property devaluation as a result of the tip. Why are we so concerned? The risks to the environment are just too great with a tip at this site. We are lifetime residents of the Peninsula and run a cattle fattening property just to the North of the proposed tip site. Sheepwash Creek runs through our property and serves as a source of stock water together with feeding a large wetland and bird habitat. Any form of toxic poisoning to Sheepwash Creek would jeopardise the health of our cattle. The impact of poisoning to the wetlands would be devastating to the birds and animals that use them. We do not want to see Dromana becoming known as the “TIP TOWN” of the Peninsula. We urge the community to rally against this ill advised, illogical and ill conceived proposal. Let the Ross Trust, Mornington Peninsula Shire Council, Councillors, Local Members of Parliament and the EPA know that you are concerned that the legacy this will leave future generations is not the worth the short time gains if any. Andrew & Joy Duncan. Dromana. Please help us fight this plan before it’s too late. Put in an objection to the planning application.

G5973938AA-a30Apr©FCNVIC

Why are the Mornington Peninsula Shire Council and Peninsula Waste Management treating this as a done deal? If the MPSC and MPRWMG were not extremely confident of the tip going ahead at this site, they would have been more proactive in seeking an alternative. Remember this has been their preferred site since 1996.

Logjam on code 1 BY LEE OPITZ STATE Opposition Leader Daniel Andrews says new figures showing patients are waiting for ambulances longer than ever is further proof the system is not working. Mr Andrews said documents obtained under freedom of information showed that over 2011-12, one in four ambulances failed to meet the government’s statewide target of responding to life-threatening or code 1 emergencies within 15 minutes. “The number of ambulances arriving at the scene of a life-threatening emergency within 15 minutes has dropped to 74.8 per cent, a blow-out of almost 6 per cent since 2010,’’ Mr Andrews said. Figures also show show the average number of hours ambulances are ramped at Frankston Hospital has almost doubled since the end of the 2009-10 financial year from 709 to 1323. Waiting times at Rosebud Hospital have jumped 36 per cent from 75 to 102. The comparisons, however, are not taken over the same period. The first figure is over a 12-month period, the second over the six months from

July 1 to December 31 last year. Mr Andrews blamed health funding cuts for the blow-out. “Delays in patient handover processes at hospitals are taking ambulances off the road for longer than ever before. ‘‘Our ambulances are increasingly being used as pop-up emergency departments for hospitals that are struggling to cope with the cuts. We need our ambulances available to attend emergencies, not sitting in queues created by a lack of hospital beds.’’ Peninsula Health executive director medical services and quality and clinical governance David Rankin said the volume of presentations to Frankston Hospital’s emergency department (ED) continued to increase. ‘‘Frankston Hospital has one of the highest numbers of ambulance arrivals of any hospital in Victoria,’’ Dr Rankin said. ‘‘All patients arriving in Frankston and Rosebud ED are assessed on arrival and the time to treatment is determined by clinical need whether they arrive via ambulance or own transport. ‘‘The most serious cases are given the highest priority.’’

NETBALLERS will take to new courts for matches at Somerville following an official opening last week. Sport and Recreation Minister Hugh Delahunty and Hastings MP Neale Burgess were on hand last week to help junior players cut the ribbon on the courts. The three netball and multipurpose courts have floodlighting. Mr Delahunty said it was part of the government’s aim to build healthy and active communities. “To achieve this goal, we need more quality and durable community facilities that encourage local people to play the sports they love for many years to come,’’ he said. “The surfaces of the new courts are synthetic and built to handle the toughest conditions, including extreme weather and many more players. ‘‘They are cushioned for safety and comfort, helping to minimise potential impact injuries.’’ Mr Delahunty said the Somerville Netball

INBRIEF Over the limit Seven drink-drivers were nabbed in Operation Backroads by Rosebud highway patrol last Wednesday week. Police set up in the quieter back streets of Lonsdale Street in McCrae and Dundas Street in Rye. The highest reading was .129 by a driver who was also unlicensed. Of the seven drivers apprehended, five lost their licence and the remainder face hefty fines and the loss of 10 demerit points. Rosebud highway patrol’s Sergeant Peter Martin said it was a timely reminder to drivers to not take risks on the road. ‘‘If you have any doubt whatsoever, find alternative means to get home. It isn’t worth it.’’ Police will run similar operations in the area in the coming weeks.

Potted insights from evergreen gardener BY SAMANTHA ROBIN

GARDENING is Cyril Jessup’s greatest love and it shows as he shares his knowledge of all things green to anyone who asks. For 17 years, Mr Jessup has given up countless hours to tend gardens at hospitals and aged-care homes on the peninsula. The 90-year-old enjoys getting outdoors and among the garden beds. ‘‘I don’t drink, I don’t gamble but when I get out there in the garden I forget all my worries,’’ he said. ‘‘People ask me why I do it, but I wouldn’t do it if I didn’t enjoy it.’’ Part of the enjoyment is giving something back to others. ‘‘It’s good for the residents to have something nice to look out on. I think they appreciate my hard work, especially when there are flowers out. ‘‘They often say thanks for helping in the garden and sometimes want a cutting to take with them.”

Despite being older than many of the residents at Rosebud Residential Aged Care Service, which was taken over by Southern Cross Care last month, Mr Jessup is agile enough to get up and down to tend to the flowers. ‘‘I have an old drink crate with a cushion on it that I use to kneel on. I have a garden of my own and I love it.’’ The Rosebud Residential Aged Care Service gardens have blossomed under his care. “There wasn’t much of a garden there at first but gradually it’s gotten a lot nicer,’’ Mr Jessup said. “I live on my own, so I get a lot of pleasure out of helping out. And it gets me out of the house and allows me to meet lots of nice people.” Southern Cross Care volunteer co-ordinator Alicia Barrett says volunteers are an integral part of the aged-care service. “The volunteers are able to spend quality time with residents and help with a wide range of programs and activities,” she said. Southern Cross Care is looking for volunteers to visit residents and help with its lifestyle

FEATURESTORY

On the job: Sergeant Bruce Buchan in front of an evidentiary breath-testing machine in a booze bus.

No joyride: One of the two booze buses at the scene.

Booze in the blood, V

eteran Frankston highway patrolman Bruce Buchan has a special gift for drivers excited by their first breath-test. ‘‘Some people want to be tested and go through the experience. So sometimes I give them the straw they blew into as a memento. It’s an icebreaker.’’ Speaking at Operation Haven, the first drinkdriving blitz on Peninsula Link, Sergeant Buchan watches as police chase down a driver who definitely wasn’t in the mood for a memento. After sudden shouts of ‘‘stop him, he’s doing a runner’’, a policeman runs beside the car and orders the driver, who was slowly but determinedly exiting the barricaded zone, to pull over at once. The result is a walk of shame to one of two booze-buses on the scene and a blood alcohol reading of .141. Sergeant Buchan is heading tonight’s operation in Frankston, between Cranbourne and Golflinks roads, which he promises is the first of many for the popular freeway that opened in January. As the traffic starts to back up for several kilometres, he hopes waiting motorists will understand the importance of the operation and not mind the minor delay. ‘‘We’re aware this type of operation causes some traffic congestion because of the nature of its set-up, but it’s important that motorists know they can be breath-tested on any carriageway. [ 14 ] WEEKLY – YOUR COMMUNITY VOICE

Peninsula Link resembled a crime scene when police launched their first booze blitz there last month, SANDRA BULL reports. ‘‘As Peninsula Link has been embraced by the motoring public it has taken a lot of the volume from roads like the Moorooduc and Nepean highways and Frankston Freeway. So there’s a chance where people might be using this when under the influence of alcohol.’’ Peninsula Link’s operators were contractually required to provide the wide bay at the side of the freeway for blitzes. The design appears to be working well. Despite two massive booze buses and Frankston SES vehicles providing lighting, there’s plenty of room for motorists to be waved in by an officer brandishing a fluoro light. Six trainees from the police academy are lined up to test drivers in the surprise blitz which runs from about 8pm to midnight. Others are taking a meal break so they will be ready to swap over. Members of the Frankston, Rosebud and Hastings highway patrols are also there to lend a hand and make spot roadworthy checks. There’s no pattern: cars pulling horse floats, taxis, tradies in utes, mums with kids in the back of sedans are all politely requested to ‘‘blow, blow, stop’’ into the straw of a handheld device that provides a guide to how much alcohol, if any, has been downed.

May 1, 2013

If alcohol over the legal limit of .05 is detected in this preliminary test, drivers are taken to a booze bus to breathe into a machine for an evidentiary test that provides a precise reading. The 13-metre behemoth is divided into three sections. The seven-seat drivers’ cabin — complete with sink, microwave, kettle and small fridge — is where the crew sit when travelling to a job. The middle and third sections, separated by a door, mirror each other with a breath-testing machine, a computer to check licences and prior offences, and a desk with a chair that doesn’t have rollers on its legs, for obvious reasons. It’s light years away from the basic minibus that Sergeant Buchan used to travel in and chairs that were lashed to boards. But the essential function remains the same: getting drunks off the road and sending the message to passing drivers that breath-testing can happen anywhere, any time. You get the feeling that the softly spoken sergeant, who has been a highway patrol member intermittently since 1986, has seen it all it his 36 years in the force. While he’s lost count of how many blitzes he’s been involved with, he never forgets the human

toll, saying knocking on a door to tell someone a loved one has been killed or paralysed in a road accident is probably the most traumatic aspect of the job. ‘‘But [overall] it’s very rewarding and one of the jobs where you can actually make a difference.’’ He’s aware of all the tricks some drivers will pull, and says the system is designed to beat them all. If a driver refuses to blow, he or she is legally required to give a blood sample. ‘‘Some people claim they can’t blow due to asthma. They also blow out the side of their mouth or put their tongue over the straw. If that happens I warn them I will charge them and they could lose their licence longer than if they had completed the breath-test, so it’s a gamble.’’ The typical excuse is ‘‘I didn’t think I drank that much’’. Experienced police know that if someone’s said they’ve downed two drinks, it’s often at least double that. Sometimes it’s been two very big drinks. A standard wine glass is 100 millilitres. But if someone has enjoyed two oversized glasses, they’ve had way more alcohol than they realise. Sergeant Buchan recommends drivers don’t drink alcohol at all, or at least be aware of how much they have had and alternate with water. But he’s also come across some innocent mishaps.


Pass or fail: Drivers line up to be tested.

hands on the wheel ‘‘It’s pretty rare. But we had one person who had been eating those beautiful cherry liquor chocolates and it did register high. Mouthwash can also indicate alcohol if you’ve just had a swig and driven down the road.’’ In both cases, a 15-minute wait before being re-tested means the alcohol is out of their system and they can continue on their way. Those who have been caught drink-driving, however, must leave their cars behind and arrange a lift. Sergeant Buchan is philosophical but unforgiving about the risks people are prepared to take behind the wheel. ‘‘Humans have failings. Why do they speed when they know there are speed cameras? ‘‘But there is an apathy out there. There’s big [road safety] campaigns every year and the next day you catch someone who has had a skinful . . . in this day and age of instant news gratification, people can see the results of carnage and yet people still drink and drive.’’ Hastings highway patrolman Leading Senior Constable Adrian Shelbourne, who is helping out at the operation, is equally frustrated by drivers willing to risk lives. He often gives road safety lectures at schools and the HMAS Cerberus training base and has plenty of hair-raising on-the-job examples to share with his audiences. ‘‘A lady in her 70s was driving about three weeks ago in Somerville and blew .16 at

CRUISYLINK

TESTING TIMES

IN an unexpected benefit, Peninsula Link has drastically cut the number of major accidents in the Frankston region. Frankston SES controller Brian McMannis said: ‘‘Since Peninsula Link opened, we’ve been very quiet for the major road accidents where we’re called out to use the Jaws of Life to cut out people trapped inside.’’ Mr McMannis, who was with a Frankston SES crew to assist with lighting at Operation Haven, said a range of factors may be driving down the accident rate. ‘‘Peninsula Link is a better road and there’s not the stopping and starting at intersections. Drivers may also feel that as they’re getting to their destination faster they don’t need to make time up.’’ As alcohol plays a role in many accidents the SES attends, Mr McMannis was happy to be involved with the first Peninsula Link blitz. ‘‘I think it’s a good thing. If we can get drinkdrivers off the road it’s going to help our cause.

EVIDENTIARY breath-tests in the Frankston police service area in 2012: 406. Of these, 27 were within the limit. The rest were over .05 or P-platers who should have had a zero blood alcohol content. The highest reading was .306 from a 46 year old man. The highest reading from a female was .216. Evidentiary breath-tests in the Mornington Peninsula police service area in 2012: 564. Of these, 29 were within the limit. A 40-yearold woman who blew .281 had the highest reading for females in both police service areas.

11.30am. She had already lost her licence after a medical review. ‘‘When I asked her why she was driving she said ‘I had to go to the bottle-o to get more wine as I had drunk it all’. She was that far gone she had no idea she was heading home.’’ Another breath-test in Somerville about a week ago resulted in a man blowing .233

despite ‘‘looking as sober as a judge’’. He is particularly frustrated by P-platers who flout the law by drinking alcohol. Although the offenders are mostly male, there are a few young women too. ‘‘It’s just a game to them . . . it’s a misconception of indestructibility.’’ Leading Senior Constable Shelley’s main message is that drink-driving affects all of us.

Infringement notices are issued for first offences under .15. Drivers with readings of .15 or more must appear before a magistrate and their licence can be cancelled for at least 15 to 48 months. Varying financial penalties apply in both cases.

‘‘The most risk people will be exposed to in their daily life is in the car as you have no control of what’s around you.’’ As the operation winds up, there’s one last ‘customer’ being tested. Three passengers, aged 13, 15 and 17, shiver by the side of the road as the driver — the father of two of them — waits for his result. By the time the dad emerges from the booze bus, the youngsters have been picked up by a family friend. Sergeant Buchan asks the father if he passed the breath-test. ‘‘Yeah, with flying colours, not,’’ is the response. But the consequences of doing the walk of shame to the booze bus where he blew 1.02 — about twice the legal limit — has chastened the country Victorian who came to the peninsula to visit a mate. ‘‘Long story short, it was a bad, bad, decision,’’ he tells the Weekly while waiting for a lift. ‘‘It was my fault and you’ve got to wear on the chin what you do. ‘‘It’s the worst decision I ever made.’’

No haven Drivers were given 1140 preliminary breath tests during Operation Haven. Six of those were caught drink-driving, with .141 the highest reading. Six penalty notices for unregistered vehicles and 10 defect notices were issued.

elbourne-based chefs and foodies have been treated to a tour of some of the Mornington Peninsula’s best primary producers. Travelling by bus from Baxter to Boneo, the contingent sampled a selection of farm produce including organic greens, beef, apples, strawberries, cheese, avocados, wine and potatoes. The focus was largely aimed at showing off regionally grown staples rather than the local ‘boutique’ brands. The event was principally sponsored by Mornington Peninsula Shire and chefs’ alliance Shared Tables and the visitors gained insight into the size and standards of this food bowl on Melbourne’s southern fringe. Shire rural business officer Gillian Stewart initiated the excursion. “Our food production zones are very fragile because the land is so valuable that farmers need to make every inch of it work. ‘‘This showcase tour is about helping our producers remain viable on what are [often relatively] small parcels of land. We want the chefs to

sells at the farm gate and also home delivers orders placed at peninsulafresh.com. “When you’re at the farmers’ markets people tell you what they’re looking for, which is often not what the wholesalers tell you. That’s how we got into heirloom vegetables.’’ Richard Hawkes manages his parents’ 50-hectare property in Boneo Road, close to Gunnamatta, growing mainly potatoes but also beets, spring onions and carrots. He is also developing some small ‘do it yourself’ plots for locals and tourists to potter in. “Kipflers are a fairly large proportion of our business. We sell about a third of them at the farm gate and at the wholesale market and to some restaurants direct. This isn’t the area to supply big league manufacturers like McCain’s. The small margins would make it a waste of time.’’ Shared Tables president Gerard Doherty described the event as a great day for the peninsula and for the chefs. The group had lunch at T’Gallant Estate in Main Ridge and ended the day with a degustation dinner prepared from regional produce by chef Pierre Khodja at the Terminus restaurant at Flinders Hotel.

Traditions vary but the message is the same nother Mother’s Day is approaching where mums all around Australia are spoilt with breakfast in bed and homemade gifts from their little ones. Mother’s Day is marked in more than 46 countries and with different traditions. In Belgium, children make little presents at primary school, which they give to their mothers in the morning of Mother’s Day. The father will often buy croissants and other sweet breads and pastries and bring these to the mother while she is still in bed. In Japan, people typically give their mothers flowers such as red carnations and roses. Celebrations for mothers are believed to date back hundreds of years ago to ancient Greece and Rome. A particular day is much more recent, and mainly credited in the United States to Anna Jarvis and Julia Ward Howes. The modern holiday of Mother’s Day was first celebrated in 1908, when Anna Jarvis held a memorial for her mother in America. She then campaigned to make Mother’s Day a recognised holiday.

A

Mother’s Day Julia Ward Howe tried to establish a Mother’s Day for Peace in the 1870s. In Australia, Janet Heyden is credited with starting the tradition of giving gifts to mums. In Sydney in 1924, she visited a patient at the Newington State Home for Women and was inspired to encourage schoolchildren and businesses to donate or bring gifts to lonely mums. While we salute our mothers in Australia on the second Sunday of May, other countries celebrate at different times.

Tigerland pounces for win No. 5 BY BRAD McGRATH MOOROODUC trainer Matt Laurie has hailed his ‘‘tough, honest’’ gelding Tigerland after the four year old saluted in the $80,000 Thomas Sabo Plate (1400m) at Caulfield on Saturday. Tigerland has taken his record to an impressive five wins and a second from six starts with the victory at Caulfield the first metropolitan win for the son of Original Sin and Mr Nancho. At the top of the straight, jockey Stephen Baster desperately tried to move the $2.40 favourite, but was

struggling to find a gap. Baster eventually guided Tigerland to the outside where he charged home to win by a long neck from John Sadler’s Little Bro ($14) and Anthony Freedman’s Reparations ($8). ‘‘I’ve never had a horse that has been able to win so many races,’’ Laurie said. ‘‘He was looking pretty awkward coming into the turn and he’s obviously just shown he’s a very tough honest horse and able to overcome what was a possible defeat. ‘‘He has had a heap of little things go wrong in his first three or four starts and to come through each of

these the way he has and win and improve and still be enjoying his work is a really good sign.’’ Laurie is weighing up the future of Tigerland with the possibility that he might be spelled, or have one more start at Flemington in a fortnight. He said he was wary of too much too soon for Tigerland after already having six races under his belt in his first preparation. ‘‘We are looking at one in Flemington in a fortnight but we’re not sure,’’ Laurie said. ‘‘He would need a little freshen up I would think — what sort of race [he

could win] we really have to think about.’’ Misscatelli, Laurie’s second runner at Caulfield on Saturday put in a bold showing in the $80,000 Hyland Race Colours Handicap (1400m) to finish fourth behind Stuart Webb’s Mybenz. ‘‘She has won her two runs this preparation and a bit like Tigerland she was in an awkward position and she is probably 12 months away from her best,’’ Laurie said of the three year old.

Mornington will hold a midweek meeting on Tuesday with eight races on the card.

Jets shocked by resurgent Stingrays DANDENONG Stingrays coach Graeme Yeats believes his team is beginning to gel after it defeated the highly rated Western Jets by 11 points at Burbank Oval on Sunday. The victory keeps the TAC Cup outfit in touch with the top eight and it showed it has improved significantly since it limped through the preseason with several big losses. “I thought it was one of the better wins I have been involved in as the group wanted it so much,’’ Yeats said. “Winning here, Williamstown, in these conditions is a great outcome for this group. The Jets are a very good team and if they had kicked a little straighter the day may have had a different outcome for us. “As the game went on I felt we started to gel a little more. Traditionally we have always been a slow starter, and today some of the things the group have been working hard on on the training track are starting to be shown on the field.” The Stingrays began the clash full of pluck, kicking against a three-goal breeze, but it was the Jets who put the first goal on the board. Soon after, Nathan Gardiner booted his first of seven goals for the day to make sure the Stingrays were in touch at the first break, with the Jets dominating general play towards the tail end of the opening quarter. The Stingrays cut the margin to three points minutes into the second term when Taylor Joyce slotted a major and when Jack Lonie went into the midfield the visitors began to look menacing.

Lonie added some serious pace to the Stingrays midfield and slipped forward and took several strong aerial marks which resulted in a classy goal. The Jets led by four points at halftime and looked promising as they had the breeze in the third term. Yeats requested his midfield to work harder and urged them to look for targets in attack rather than bombing the ball long. They lifted significantly and the Stingrays booted 5.0 for the third quarter and took the lead with their back line providing plenty of drive. The Stingrays were kicking with the breeze in the final term but it was the Jets who dominated the opening minutes. However, inaccurate kicking cost them dearly. Despite the Jets kicking the opening two goals of the last quarter, Gardiner imposed himself on the game with two final-quarter goals. Lonie booted his second and when Jack Soroczynski kicked a nice goal the game was out of reach for the Jets. Stingrays talent manager Mark Wheeler was pleased with the debutants. “We had six 17 year olds playing today — three for their first game — along with another first game player in 18-year-old Jake Gains,’’ he said. ‘‘I think as the game went on they got a lot better, and we as a group will be better off for blooding them.” — Brad McGrath The Stingrays clash with Murray Bushrangers at Shepley Oval from 2pm on Saturday.

First loss for the Old Boys PENINSULA suffered its first defeat of the season on Saturday, going down to Monash University by 16 points in their VAFA Premier C match at the Peninsula School. The Old Boys controlled the game for most of the first half before a thirdquarter lapse allowed the Blues to take control. The Pirates conceded seven goals in the third term and were unable to work their way back. Peninsula was without ruckman Nick Fisher and his absence was felt heavily — second strings Leith Baker and Hayden Brodie battled manfully but the Monash ruck dominance was telling. Peninsula midfielder Harry Whitty was best on ground for the second week in a row, the classy ball winner finishing with four majors. The Pirates pushed to retake the lead in the final term but fell short of the mark with Monash edging out the Pirates. In division 3, South Mornington lost its second match for the year going down to La Trobe University by 22 points. — Morgan Cole

Breakers fall

Battling hard Mornington Soccer Club suffered a 2-0 defeat at the hands of Langwarrin at Dallas Brooks Park on Saturday. Mornington’s Wayne Gordon (pictured) battled hard for the home team and Langwarrin’s Caleb Nicholes and Liam Ryan scored the goals. Mornington, which is 10th on the FFV State League 2 south-east ladder, meets Malvern City at Kooyong Park on Saturday.

MORNINGTON Breakers have come up short against Shepparton Gators, going down by 13 points in their Big V division 2 men’s clash at Mornington Basketball Stadium on Saturday night. Breakers forward Daniel Christian had a night to forget, shooting just 14 per cent from the field, knocking down one field goal for the night. Christian’s presence was sorely missed on the court, the big man restricted to just 21 minutes of play after getting into foul trouble early. The match see-sawed for much of the first half but the Gators took control in the third period and never looked back. The Breakers’ poor shooting cost them in the second half, making six from 32 attempts as they struggled to get any rhythm into their game. Import DeMarcus Berry was busy as usual, leading the way on the scoresheet with 17 points and eight rebounds. Captain David Smith had a modest night’s scoring by his standards with just 14 points. Mornington will look to bounce back on Sunday when its plays host to the Maccabi Warriors in a must-win game. The Breakers women felt the full sting of the Blackburn Vikings, going down 63-42 and the youth league men fell to Camberwell by five points.


Hot Sharks outgun Panthers BY MORGAN COLE SORRENTO continued its dominant start to the season defeating a rejuvenated Pearcedale by 45 points in their Nepean League clash at Pearcedale Recreation Reserve on Saturday. The reigning premier has won four straight and is showing no signs of slowing down, with the inclusion of former St Kilda tagger Steven Baker already paying dividends. The Sharks got out to an early quartertime lead, Pearcedale offering fierce resistance in the first term managing two goals against the stiff breeze which strongly favoured one end. The Panthers came out guns blazing in the second term, taking advantage of the wind, booting seven goals to take an eightpoint buffer into half-time. The Sharks responded after the main change piling on nine goals in the third quarter, coach Nick Claringbold pleased with his side’s effort to retake control. ‘‘We came out and just worked,’’ Claringbold said. ‘‘We really focused on our work rate and our defensive pressure.’’ Sorrento midfielders Leigh Treeby and Caydn Beetham led the charge from the centre making the most of Ryan Jeffery’s ruck dominance. Pearcedale coach Ben Cadd praised the work of his players despite the result, the third-year coach highlighting the improvement of his young side. ‘‘We responded really well after last week’s game against Dromana which was a bit of a disaster,’’ Cadd said.

The first half produced some scrappy football with the swirly conditions not favouring either end. Mt Eliza went in with a slightly different forward line with defender Sam Gill moving to the goal square and former captain Dave Willett playing deep in attack with plenty of effect to finish with four majors. Bonbeach coach Steve Capp was disappointed with the loss but paid full credit to the desperate Mt Eliza side. ‘‘It was one we really wanted to win, but they handled the conditions a lot better than we did. We just couldn’t match them in the important parts of the game.’’ The second quarter was far more free-flowing with goals starting to come for both sides. Mt Eliza forward Ben Lean made the most of his chances with four goals. Bonbeach ruckman Dylan Jones lodged another strong performance

TAC Cup: Dandenong Stingrays 15.8 (98) d Western Jets 12.15 (87).

‘‘Sorrento are a really strong team so we were really pleased with our improved effort.’’ Panthers forward Pat Heijden created plenty of headaches for the Sharks defence booting seven majors, Chris Fortnam chipping in with four. At the other end, Sorrento young gun Leigh Poholke won the Anzac Day medal for his efforts, also finishing with seven goals to his name. Sorrento takes on Red Hill this Saturday in what promises to be a fiery clash between the rivals, with tensions still high after a Steven Baker pre-season incident. In other Nepean League matches, Frankston Bombers secured their fourth straight victory, narrowly defeating Rye in a nail-biter at R J Rowley Reserve. Bomber midfielder Shawn Wilkey produced another first-class performance through the midfield. The match was an arm wrestle for most of the afternoon, the Bombers leading at every change to hold on to claim a slender four-point victory. Rosebud bounced back after the previous week’s narrow loss to defeat a spirited Somerville by 19 points. Red Hill suffered a 125-point hiding at the hands of Dromana, Tigers forwards Anthony Bruhn and Adam Lourey sharing 11 goals between them. Hastings secured its first win of the season with a 75-point hammering of Devon Meadows.

tended my knee and it locked up,’’ Eames said. ‘‘It could be a PCL, which would keep me out for about six weeks. ‘‘I won’t really know anything until after the scans. Hopefully it’s just some bone bruising, but I am preparing for the worst: the ACL, which would keep me out for the year.’’ Eames has been a regular MPNFL interleague player and enjoyed a stellar VFL career with Springvale and Frankston Dolphins. Mt Eliza ended its three-game losing streak, overcoming Bonbeach by 18 points in a Peninsula League match at Bonbeach on Saturday. Redlegs coach Jason Watts was relieved to end the rocky start and put his side’s season back on track. ‘‘The boys acquitted themselves really well,’’ he said. ‘‘We had our backs against the wall and they came out and played really good footy.’’

FINALSCORES

Injury a blow for top Stonecats ruckman FRANKSTON YCW champion Ash Eames’ career hangs in the balance over a serious knee injury he suffered in the Stonecats’ 16-point win over Karingal at Ballam Park on Saturday. The ruckman hyperextended his knee in the third quarter of the victory and took no further part in the clash. He was due to undergo scans yesterday to determine the extent of the injury. Eames, 33, said he was preparing himself for the worst-case scenario. It would mean one of the most highly regarded ruckmen in country football would be forced to have a knee reconstruction on a ruptured anterior cruciate ligament. But he is hanging on to hope that it might be a posterior cruciate ligament and he could return late in the season as the Stonecats chase a fourth straight premiership. ‘‘I landed awkwardly and hyperex-

for his new club and got the better of talented Mt Eliza ruck duo Matt Lillie and Will Suhr. Despite the Sharks’ ruck dominance Redlegs on-baller Karl Lombardozzi was a class above through the midfield, earning him the Anzac Day medal. Willett had a stellar final term, giving Mt Eliza the edge when going forward, allowing them to run out winners by 18 points. In other Peninsula League matches, Mornington steamrolled Chelsea by 78 points, Bulldogs forward Adrian Speedy dominating with five goals. Pines smashed Langwarrin by 68 points. Seaford made it three wins on the trot, defeating Edithvale-Aspendale by 28 points. — Morgan Cole For more MPNFL reports and pictures visit frankstonweekly.com.au.
