She’s safe!

It’s a whole new ball game for Genevieve Beacom of Somerville. The 12-year-old baseball player has pitched herself into a top spot and is off to Japan this week to mix it with some of the world leading women players. The trip follows a stellar season in club and representative baseball and softball. See full story Page 6.

Legal blunder buys time in club’s rent fight Keith Platt keith@mpnews.com.au MORNINGTON Peninsula Shire is reconsidering its decision to increase the rent for The Hastings Club after being told the calculations on which it was based contravened the Gambling Regulation Act 2003 (the Act). The original plan, which saw the club’s rent rise from about $4000 to $42,000 in the first year and climbing to $54,000 in three years, was met with

dismay by the members and supporters of the Hastings Cricket and Football Social Club who immediately sought legal advice. Councillors were last month (June) told by property and strategy manager Yasmin Woods that the calculation method she used in March “inadvertently contravenes” the act. Councillors have now deferred making a decision on a “new” rent which used different methods to arrive at exactly the same amount.

In March Ms Woods had recommended the rent be $42,234 (plus GST), comprising $20,000 based on one third of the market value of the ground and one per cent of the club’s gaming room receipts. However, the Office of Liquor, Gaming and Racing, wrote to say gaming venue operators were prohibited from entering into an agreement based on gaming machine revenue. At council’s 27 June meeting Ms Woods urged council keep to her origi-

nal rent suggestions - $42,234 in the first year, climbing to $52,234 by the fourth year – but did not tie the money to gaming receipts. She said the amounts were “still considered … fair and reasonable” and quoted sections of the shire’s Responsible Gaming Strategy as justification: “To ensure that venues operating gaming machines on shire owned land make a positive contribution to the community.” The strategy notes that “the presence of gaming machines changes the

Three flags celebrate history and culture THREE flags were raised at the “hut by the sea� at Hastings to mark the start of NAIDOC Week. “Hut by the sea� is the English translation of the Boon Wurrung phrase Willum Warrain, the name of the Aboriginal community’s gathering place in Pound Rd, Hastings, that opened in 2014. NAIDOC Week celebrates the history, culture and achievements of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people, and a week of events on the peninsula was started by raising the national flag, Australian Aboriginal flag, and the Torres Strait Islander flag. This year’s theme was “Our Languages Matter� to highlight the importance of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander languages. About 250 distinct language groups existed by the late 18th century but less than half are still spoken. Willum Warrain Aboriginal Association president Peter Aldenhoven illustrated his talk about the loss of languages with a copy of Yan-nhangu Atlas and Illustrated Dictionary of the Crocodile Islands, created by the late Laurie Baymarrwangga and anthropologist Dr Bentley James. Laurie Baymarrwangga was the last fluent speaker of the Yan-nhangu language (and the 2012 Senior Australian of the Year), which was spoken in northwest Arnhem Land in the Northern Territory. “Aboriginal and Torres Strait languages are not just a means of communication, they express knowledge about everything: law, geography, history, family and human relationships, philosophy, religion, anatomy,

Plate thefts ‘frustrating’ THE theft of number plates from cars and trucks is continuing to frustrate police. “It’s a never-ending saga,� Detective Acting Sergeant Martin McLean, of Mornington Peninsula CIU, said. In Victoria, all number plates, other than customised plates, are the property of VicRoads. “Number plates on display on walls or in sheds for whatever reason should be taken down and returned to police,� Detective McLean said. “Parents should be aware that if their children have plates they should be handed in.� He said the fitting of one-way screws or rivets would make it harder for thieves to steal them. They are available from hardware stores and service clubs such as Lions and Rotary.

Red Hill truck crash A MAN was taken to The Alfred hospital by air ambulance with leg injuries Friday morning after a truck crashed into a tree at Red Hill. Paramedics were called to Main Creek Rd just before 7am. The man was trapped for an hour and treated by paramedics who said he was in a “stable condition�.

THE BAYS HOSPITAL

Having a baby in 5 star style THE newly opened $6million maternity unit at The Bays Hospital is more like a luxurious 5 star hotel than a hospital ward. Whilst The Bays has a long standing reputation for providing exceptional maternity care and the team is nationally recognised for their service, the maternity facilities were due for an update. The brand new unit comprising of all private rooms with tasteful yet practical modern furnishings provides the perfect setting to match the award winning service that is delivered by the team. Each room has its own ensuite with baby bath, bar fridge and large flat screen television. Partners are always welcome and are encouraged to stay in hospital. Partners or a nominated support person are considered to play an important part of experience through the

antentatal, birthing and postdelivery support times. The Bays actively includes partner learning and support as part of their education and service. Each of the large new birthing suites has an ensuite with its own deep bath. The amazing baths have been a talking point in antenatal and new mum circles as being an important part of their birthing plan and experience. “Water, whether it be in a shower or bath (or both) can play a role in helping mums cope with pain during labour and providing for a calm birthing experience” says Marg Joyce, Midwife. The state of the art special care nursery is impressively equipped with everything that might be required if a baby needs close monitoring, is unwell or in the case of an emergency. The specialist paediatricians

are on site weekdays and on call 24/7. They are all highly trained specialists in neonatal care and are available to follow up your babies care locally should you need them ongoing or in the future. “Having a baby is one of the most important and special times in your life. Being supported by an experienced obstetrician and a team of midwives who offer woman centred care enables patients to feel safe and supported in their pregnancy and childbirth experience. This helps achieve the best outcomes for mothers and babies.” Dr Kelly Griffin, Obstetrician & Gynaecologist The supportive nature of the maternity team and the respectful, collaborative approach between midwives,

obstetricians and paediatricians makes The Bays a unique place. Making patient care and experience the best and safest it can be is their common goal. “When choosing your obstetrician make sure you feel comfortable raising issues with them about your body, your state of mind and your preferences and expectations for the birth. Having a baby is one of the most significant and rewarding events in your life and it is important you feel supported and comfortable.” Dr Sarah Roberts, Obstetrician & Gynaecologist It is also reassuring to know that patient care does not end on the day that new parents leave the hospital. When you have your baby at The Bays, you become part of The Bays family

and the door is always open. Ongoing support is available 24/7 for new parents and The Bays lactation consultant often continues to help with breast feeding should issues arise at home.

Polio grant from ‘right’ health minister POLIO support lobbyist Fran Henke of Hastings is the first to admit she has been “gently nagging” her local federal MP Greg Hunt for many years about the unmet needs of Australia’s polio survivors. When Mr Hunt was appointed federal Minister of Health in January (replacing Sussan Ley who resigned over a travel expenses scandal), Mrs Henke requested a meeting, and no doubt Mr Hunt knew what was coming. Last week he announced that a request to support Polio Australia’s Late Effects of Polio (LEoP) clinical practice workshop program had been successful. The federal government will fund the program for three years at $150,000 a year. “I have nagged Mr Hunt for 16 years about the needs of Australia’s polio survivors,” Mrs Henke said. “He always listened and became a Parliamentary Friend of Polio Survivors but was never in the position to actually help us.” “We were delighted when his Hastings office said in March that Mr Hunt could meet representatives from Polio Australia, Post Polio Victoria, Polio Network Victoria, and Mornington Peninsula Post Polio Support Group. “He again listened to our concerns and then asked for a proposal for that amount of money to be on his desk the following Monday. I was staggered and asked why this had taken so long. ‘Wrong health minister,’ he quipped.” She said many survivors were now experiencing late effects of polio, known as post-polio syndrome. “The majority of polios, as we call ourselves, are too old to benefit from the NDIS, which cuts out at 65,” she said. Mr Hunt said the $450,000 grant to Polio Australia would enable it to “run clinical practice workshops for health professionals to improve their awareness of post-polio syndrome”. “We are fortunate today in Australia that many young people have had limited or no first-hand experience with polio and its crippling effects,

thanks to vaccination programs that have largely eradicated the virus from our shores,” he said. “But the earlier epidemics in the late 1930s, early 1940s and 1950s affected up to four million Australians to varying degrees, with up to 40,000 people infected with the severe paralytic polio virus and many more infected with the non-severe paralytic polio who are still living with the condition today. “The funding will particularly benefit polio survivors who experience late effects of the illness, which can occur up to 40 years after their initial infection.” The symptoms of fatigue, muscle weakness, joint pain, and sleeping, breathing or swallowing difficulties were often confused with other medical conditions, meaning some patients may not receive the right treatment and support. Polio Australia’s clinical practice workshops would provide up to 1200 primary and allied

health professionals with an opportunity to learn more about the effects of the illness. “The workshops will be held in various locations around Australia and will be open to GPs, nurses, occupational therapists, physiotherapists, podiatrists and orthotists,” he said. Mrs Henke, who contracted polio in 1946, said it was pleasing that the government was finally recognising the post-polio syndrome community. “The biggest battle for polio survivors is not having access to health professionals who understand polio,” she said. “It is essential that all medical professionals are educated so that people with post-polio syndrome can receive the appropriate care, treatment and support they need,” she said. “We are grateful to the federal government for this support and hope it will lead to further advances and assistance for people with post-polio syndrome.” Mike Hast

Jobs boost from Cerberus upgrades WORK valued at $481 million to replace outdated infrastructure and facilities at HMAS Cerberus is likely to start this year. The work was foreshadowed in a Defence White Paper in March. It will include “improved underground services”, technical and physical training facilities, survival-at-sea facilities, and refurbishment of dining and accommodation areas. The funding is expected to secure the future of the base as Australia’s principal naval training base and pump money into the economies of Crib Point, Hastings and surrounding areas. “When the base opened in 1920 it could not have been envisioned how much it would grow and expand,” Flinders MP Greg Hunt said. “The existing facilities no longer meet current demands. The upgrades will ensure our defence capacity continues well into the future.” Small- to medium-sized businesses on the peninsula could tender for contracts related to the redevelopment through tenders.gov.au, Mr Hunt said. “Defence is a major employer in the electorate, with more than 2000 personnel based there who are providing significant benefits to the local economy. “The primary training facility will be critical in building a potent maritime and submarine warfare capability.” Hastings state MP Neale Burgess said the redevelopment was welcome news for the community. “[The base] needs to have world-class training facilities and I’m glad the Commonwealth government is injecting the necessary funds,” he said. HMAS Cerberus Commanding Officer Captain Stephen Bowater said in March the funding would provide a significant boost to the base, allowing it to extend its capabilities and improve facilities for naval personnel. The work will be completed by 2025. Stephen Taylor

GENEVIEVE Beacom of Somerville flies to Japan this week as part of the Australia-Japan Women’s Baseball Youth Leaders Exchange. Last week she trained with the high performance squad in Sydney, focusing on skills, fitness, leadership and game development. The squad will compete against Japanese youth teams and train with professional Japanese women’s teams. Genevieve, 12, played the summer season as a left-handed pitcher for Cheltenham Baseball Club and was a member of the premiership sides in the under-12 and under-14 age groups. The year 7 Flinders Christian Community College student won the under-12 pitching award at the club and was a silver medallist at the 2017 Youth Women’s National Championships as the youngest member of the team. She pitched and played first base. As a member of the Southern Mariners Charter program Genevieve was selected for the Southern Mariners All Star Team to compete at the state championships at Knox in April. Her team won and went on to represent Victoria at the Little League Championships at Lismore (which was washed out) and in Sydney. Genevieve is the only girl to represent the Southern Mariners Charter at Little League state and national championships in 2016 and 2017. Her performance at this year’s Lit-

tle League State Championship was so impressive that she was recognised as a youth leader in Victorian baseball. She was captain of the school softball team in the national competition. “She’s had a great year and we are so proud of her,” mum Chrysanne Beacom said. “At Knox in the state competition she pitched a blinder, getting 14 out of 15 strikeouts.” Ms Beacom said Japan offered more of a pathway for Australian professional women baseball players,

which is one of the foundations of the Australia-Japan affiliation. “She is a lovely girl, a great teammate and very supportive of her friends,” she said. “That’s even more important than her performances out on the field. “At the end of the day she will have been a good athlete but she’ll be a good person all her life.” A GoFundMe Campaign called Genevieve’s Japan Baseball Tour has been arranged to help defray some of the costs of the trip.

Shire to explain planning changes

Good taste: Georgie Bass Cafe and Cooking School head chef Michael Cole, the mayor Cr Bev Colomb and apprentice Laura Skvor celebrate their win. Picture: Supplied

Recipe for contest success IT may be long running, but the waiting for the outcome of the international Bocuse d’Or World Cooking Contest is like a slow-prepared or slow-cooked meal: well worthwhile. Head chef of the Georgie Bass Cafe and Cooking School at Flinders, Michael Cole, and Rosebud Chisholm Institute apprentice Laura Skvor, have won the Australian selection of the contest and next compete in Singapore

from which the top five Asian teams qualify for the 2019 Bocuse d’Or finals in France. Cole also won the Australian Chef of the Year award. Cole and his apprentice Skvor were brought together through a campaign to connect the tourism industry and jobseekers on the peninsula. The enterprise by Mornington Peninsula Shire, Mornington Pen-

insula Regional Tourism Board and Chisholm Institute included working with tourism ambassadors who featured in videos to inspire job seekers. The campaign aims to build up an understanding among school leavers, job seekers, skilled workers and professionals to consider the peninsula tourism industry as a first-choice career.

THREE public meetings are being held to explain changes to state government planning regulations that allow 11 metre high three storey buildings in residential areas across the Mornington Peninsula. Mornington Peninsula Shire councillors are concerned about the changes which will affect those living in Rosebud, Dromana, Capel Sound, Bittern, Hastings, Tyabb, Somerville and Baxter. “My fellow councillors and I believe these information sessions are a great opportunity for those in affected townships and surroundings to hear about the planning changes and what the shire is doing to save their character,â€? the mayor Cr Bev Colomb said. At a recent planning services committee meeting, councillors backed an interim peninsula wide design and development overlay (DDO) which will be presented to planning minister Richard Wynne for his consideration. “The change to the general residential zone, in the absence of additional planning controls, presents a significant risk of inappropriate development on the peninsula,â€? planning services manager David Bergin said. “To protect our townships ‌ from the negative impact of these planning changes, this interim DDO will ensure that development is not inconsistent with the role and character of Mornington Peninsula townships.â€? The interim DDO will expire after two years – allowing the shire time to work on strategies that will likely result in the application of similar

planning controls for these areas on a permanent basis. It will affect about 24,200 properties. Information sessions will be held at Rosebud Memorial Hall, 994 Point Nepean Rd, 6-8pm, Thursday 20 July, Peninsula Community Theatre, 91 Wilsons Rd, Mornington, 6-8pm, Wednesday 26 July, and Tyabb Community Hall, 1535 Frankston-Flinders Rd, 6-8pm, Tyabb, Wednesday 2 August. Light suppers will be provided. To learn more about the planning changes visit mornpen.vic.gov.au/planningchanges. Stephen Taylor

Gang robs Aldi Somerville FOUR armed men robbed Somerville’s Aldi supermarket at about 6.40pm on Sunday 9 July. The men wearing balaclavas and carrying garden stakes entered the Frankston-Flinders Rd store, threatened staff and demanded cash. They drove off in a white Toyota Kluger, registration number ZYF-927. A witness said the garden stakes were spiked with nails. “The gang seemed cool and calm, like professionals, and did not care about young children witnessing the event. Staff remained calm,� they said. Anyone with any information is urged to call Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000 or submit a confidential crime report at crimestoppersvic.com.au Calls and reports can be made anonymously.

‘Overkill’ claim as police jump man outside his home Stephen Taylor steve@mpnews.com.au A MORNINGTON man got the fright of his life when bailed up by police, with guns drawn, outside his house, 1.30am, Tuesday 27 June. Philippe DeKraan, of Alameda Av, said the the police helicopter hovering overhead and noises in his street woke him up, so he dressed and went outside. There was plenty of action in the street, he said, with police on foot roaming from house to house. “Before I could blink they rushed towards me,” Mr DeKraan said. “Three police cars turned their headlights on me and police jumped out of their cars with hands on their pistols, shouting at me several times to put my hands on my head and to turn around. “While they were shouting at me I was saying to them, ‘I live here’, but that wasn’t important at all. “It was so much overkill. I was just seeing what was going on. “If I happened to put my hands the wrong way they might have thought I was reaching for something. “Because of the feeling of overkill and tension, I feared that one of them could have shot me.” Mornington Sergeant Chris Bird said police were searching properties in the street for a man allegedly armed with a firearm who had been involved in a domestic violence incident. They had earlier chased the man’s car but abandoned the pursuit when other road users became endangered. The man, who had allegedly threatened to ram his car through the doors of the Mornington police station, eventually gave himself up after a long phone call with police. Realising Mr De Kraan, an artist who was wearing facial bandages because of a medical condition, did not pose a threat, shouted shouted at him to “go inside and stay there”.

The command shocked him: “Is this normal procedure?” he said. “They offered no explanation for their behaviour. “I nearly said to them, because it was so ridiculous, ‘Do you know who I am’. Apparently, at that crazy moment, I was a nothing.” Southern Metro Region - Division 4 Superintendent Adrian White, who is responsible for police activity in Frankston and on the Mornington Peninsula, said police were searching for a “violent offender who had committed serious criminal offences”. “Police were also of the belief that this person had access to firearms,” the superintendent said. “That offender has now been apprehended. As the investigation is still ongoing I am unable to comment further. “I will add that I am sorry for the stress or anxiety police actions may have caused any local resident. I acknowledge that, on occasions, police may approach unsuspecting members of the community believing them to be offenders. “This is done in a dynamic and fast-moving scenario where police have to make immediate and split-second assessments and will, on occasion, have to act in a way that distresses some people.” He said that if Mr DeKraan wished to discuss the matter further he should contact the Officer in Charge of Mornington Police. Mr DeKraan, who has since called Mornington police to complain, said a police search “doesn’t mean they have to single out and intimidate the first person they see”. “What if I had had a heart condition?” he asked. “They say they were justified, or that they don’t have to justify their behaviour, but there should be different protocols. “It was a dismal response. I had a tube in my nose, bandages over my face and was no threat to anyone. “It should have been obvious that I was no criminal and was no threat to anyone but they wouldn’t listen to me.” Mr DeKraan said he was considering making an official complaint to Victoria Police over his treatment.

Golf club leads scorecard in bid for lease Keith Platt keith@mpnews.com.au THE 450 members of Devilbend Golf Club seem set to retain control of future of their golf course. Mornington Peninsula Shire Council has agreed to a new 21-lease for the Loders Rd, Moorooduc, golf course. However, the operations of the golf club are to be subject to a review by private consultants hired by council. The lease effectively rules out advertising that the golf course was available for lease or appointing a commercial manager, as recommended by the shire’s property operations team leader, Greg Collins. The report to a council meeting in April with Mr Collins’ recommendations was dropped without explanation from the agenda (“Golf ckub in the rough over lease” The News 25/4/17). Mr Collins said granting the club a third 21year lease over the Crown land “would limit council control over the property to the terms and conditions of the lease”. At the council’s 27 June meeting property and strategic manager Yasmin Woods said granting the club a 21-year lease with an annual rent of $10,233 (plus GST) with three per cent annual increases would allow it to continue improvements outlined in a master plan. Although agreeing to the lease, councillors also

agreed to the hiring of Golf Business Advisory Services (GBAS) to report on “a review of the club and its operations”. “The club has been at the site since 1974 and the proposed lease will provide for the continued operation and improvement of the well-established facility and security of tenure for the benefit of members and users of the facility,” Ms Woods stated in a report to councillors. “The club is a not-for-profit incorporated association and employs six full time and seven part time staff.” An audited financial report supplied by the club for the year ending 30 June 2016 showed a net operating profit of $71,642 from an annual turnover of $1.36 million. “This is in contrast to the previous year where the club experienced a net loss of $107,676 due largely to unforeseen legal and salary expenses,” Ms Woods said. In the 10 years to 2016 the club spent $760,000 on course improvements (not including of staff/ volunteer labour); $41,900 on maintenance; and $594,000 to buy machinery. Mr Collins said granting the Devilbend club a five-year lease would allow council to work on a transition from the club to commercial management. He said the club could use the course if a commercial manager was appointed but would “no longer carry the risk of managing the facilities”.

WHAT’S NEW...

Twenty years of service and style for Jaleigh Blinds JALEIGH Blinds has certainly withstood the test of time with the family owned business celebrating 20 years this month. “At Jaleigh Blinds and Curtains, our philosophy is to offer expertise and friendly advice to help our customers make confident, informed decisions,” said husband and wife owners, David and Annette Farren. “We do not believe in hard sell but rather let our service, quality products and low prices speak for themselves.” Initially run from home by the husband and wife team, the company now also provides employment for 20 local people. “By manufacturing most styles of blinds in our Carrum Downs factory, we eliminate the middle man and pass the savings on to our customers. Our locally made range is comple-

mented by the latest styles sourced from selected suppliers, all experts in their field,” said David and Annette. “Many of our customers come to us through recommendation and we also supply to a large number of local builders, developers, health facilities and schools on a regular basis.” The business’ knowledge of the industry started at the coalface with David doing installations for other businesses. “Then we started to sell blinds, which Annette went out measuring and quoting while I did the installations,” said David, who recalls that, at the same time, he was also setting up and running a workroom for another blind company. “We then started to manufacture blinds from our shed at home and, as the business grew, we opened a shop

and workroom at 50 Hartnett Drive, Seaford. Since then we have opened a standalone workroom and another shop in Pakenham. We have gone from just the two of us to having 25 employees across the business. We stated just selling the current trends in blinds and then added soft furnishings as we felt there was a demand for the complete package.” Meanwhile the manufacturing side of the business started with just vertical blinds, followed by roller binds as they started to become more popular. Timber blinds and roman blinds followed while the retailer also sourced other products from specialists within the industry. “We sell all internal window coverings from roller binds to venetians, romans and shutters, through to curtains, pelmets, swags and tails

and nyth9ing in between. Our core range includes roller blinds, verticals, roman blinds and panel glides, manufactured in our factory. We also manufacture pvc venetians and curtain tracks in house and have added Visionshade blinds to our range. We have expanded our range of exterior awnings, including motorisation. Plantations shutters remain a favorite especially for front facing windows,” said David and Annette. Jaleigh Blinds cater for anything from budget to higher end, whether it is basic roller blinds or the most luxurious soft furnishings. “Our typical customer is a private home owner, either in the process of building or renovating. They might be looking to fit out an entire house or just some rooms, depending on their project. We also have a large clientele

who own rental properties or holiday homes and require cost effective solutions to covering their windows,” said David and Annette. “We pride ourselves on our staff’s product knowledge, but saying that, we are not afraid to ask our specialist suppliers for assistance when required.” Going forward, business growth will be based on more of the same approach as the last 20 years says David and Annette. “Keeping up with the latest trends, using the newest technology and ensuring all staff are well trained and give exceptional customer service,” they said. “We have used the motto ‘Quality and Service at the right price’ since we first stated the business and continue to uphold that motto.”

â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Leading ladiesâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; take centre stage at gallery

Minna Gilliganâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Are You Done with That, above, is a 2017 acrylic and collage on found image. It is reproduced courtesy of the artist and Daine Singer Gallery.

UPCOMING exhibitions at the Mornington Peninsula Regional Gallery feature works by past and contemporary female artists. The Leading Ladies of Yesterday, Today and Tomorrow exhibitions run from 21 July to 17 September. Constance Stokes (1906-1991) is regarded as one of the leading artists of her generation, the gallery said. She travelled and studied in London and Paris, and in 1953 exhibited at the Royal Academy in London alongside Arthur Boyd, Russell Drysdale and Sidney Nolan. In 1929 she won the Travelling Scholarship at the National Gallery School, Melbourne, to study for two years at the Royal Academy in London. She studied under French Cubist artist AndrĂŠ Lhote in Paris and visited the major galleries in Europe, while struggling to be an artist despite the expectations of marriage and family life. Travel and a classical painting style were features of Stokesâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; mid-career. In 1953 she was one of 12 Australian artists, and one of two women, included in an exhibition at Burlington Galleries, London, alongside Arthur Boyd, William Dobell, Russell Drysdale, Lloyd Rees, Donald Friend, and Sidney Nolan. During a late-career flourish in her 70s she embedded a Matisse-inspired vibrancy and freedom of form and colour in some of her strongest work. This exhibition features 35 key paintings and drawings, covering the breadth of Stokesâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; 60-year career. Archival material includes journals, sketchbooks, letters, photographs and drawings. They provide a fascinating insight into her little-known life and exceptional artistic practice. The Archibald Prize-winning artist Wendy Sharpeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Wanderlust exhibition features work from her travels and residencies over the past 10 years in Italy, France, Egypt, India, the Middle East, Morocco, Antarctica, Mexico and Spain. Instagram sensation Minna Gilliganâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Mystery to Me presents large-scale digital prints on fabric alongside small-scale collage works and tackles notions of the female protagonist. Gosia Wlodarczakâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s ephemeral drawing project has transformed the gallery cafe, activating the surfaces with handmade marks as she responded to the forms she encountered while drawing. The gallery is in Civic Reserve, Dunns Rd, Mornington. It opens 10amâ&#x20AC;&#x201C;5pm, Tuesday to Sunday. Admission is $4 adults, $2 concession.

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 Mt Eliza, Rosebud and Moorabbin.

NEPEAN H ARING “Hear to help”


LETTERS Tourists welcome I have been surprised to hear that some of Rye citizens are anti campers and caravans. If we are all expressing our opinions on our local environment, then let me say that I welcome the campers and caravaners with open arms. They make Rye jump like a costal holiday destination should. They are not here for very long and if we have to put up with some driving and parking frustrations, so what? Ask the traders how long they would stay in business if the visitors didn’t flock down and tip great sums of money into their cash registers every summer. And that’s how I balance the whole issue. We have to tolerate the invasion for four or five months and that leaves us seven months of the year for us to enjoy the serenity of our village. As to the trees and such on the foreshore, I would be happy to see the scrub cleared out and some landscaping done between Ozone St and the hospital. At the moment there are some well cleared areas that are attractive and family friendly, but there also great lumps of tangled scrub that are not only ugly but also useless to all except snakes and foxes as well as being a fire hazard. Clear it all up and put in more camping and caravan sites to assist with council’s cash flow . And when, oh when, do we get a modern pool complex and a water park? Peter Cowan, Rye

Planning loses out The new planning laws, Vic-stupid, being forced on municipalities around Victoria by the state government will treat large areas of green wedge land around Melbourne’s fringe the same as metropolitan Melbourne. This will lead to the fast death of the lungs of Melbourne for a quick buck by developers and at the cost of local populations.

Three-storey developments and commecialisation of the green wedges without much oversight by councils will rip the guts out of the few green spaces left around Melbourne. We are very worried down here on the Mornington Peninsula, should be many other people in municipalities around the fringe of the metropolis. We need to keep our old planning schemes to protect us from the scourge of developers. Rupert Steiner, Balnarring Beach

Hope for Gillard I am very pleased that the Julia Gillard has been appointed chair of Beyond Blue. I am also very encouraged to read an article she wrote about her aspirations for people suffering from mental health illnesses. I am wondering and hoping that in her new role she might be able to help the mental health of the hundreds of refugees Australia has placed in detention centres, here on the mainland, as well as those poor souls languishing on Manus Island and on Nauru. Their only hope is that if the Ms Gillard takes a stand, using her new powerful position, and actually listens to the thousands of Australians who care about the mental health of these refugees and does whatever it takes to release them. So many of them are suffering from various mental illnesses. She should make it a priority. Most of them have suffered greatly from escaping their war torn countries, seeing and experiencing terrible atrocities only to be put in what one can only describe inhumane facilities. Act now.

Campaigners rally for war on waste JOINING the Red Hill-based Plastic Bag Free Peninsula group in May was the catalyst for Gwen Giudici’s journey towards wanting to reduce waste in general. “At the meeting I was introduced to Boomerang Bags by Shelle Hepburn,” she said. “She had been sewing the bags in Sorrento with volunteers and school kids. At the meeting I suggested I could set up a group in Rosebud. “I live in Tootgarook but I knew a centrally located deli whose owners are very active in the war on waste.” La Casa Nostra Deli owners Susan and Phil Tomasello are opposed to paper bags and paper straws and encourage customers to bring in containers for deli products, while cutting 50 cents off a cup of coffee if they bring their own cup. “There is a world full of problems needing to be addressed but reducing waste is something I personally feel is where I can make a difference,” Ms Giudici said. “What hits me the most is the harm we inflict on animals with our waste. They are powerless against our carelessness. Many of us are not even aware of the damage we are doing and that’s where I want to make the change – create awareness and the change will follow.” Boomerang Bags are the ideal vehicle to create change: they replace plastic bags, start a conversation on waste, and help bring the community together. Ms Giudici said her group “couldn’t sew Boomerang Bags fast enough” to adequately supply supermarkets. “We are approaching businesses to stop supplying plastic bags as well as sharing ideas on how to reduce waste,” she said. “I can do only do so much; my main goal is to keep up supply to Sue at La Casa Nostra. She is happy to explain the Boomerang Bags initiative.” The group aims to hold a community sew at Rye Community House, Thursdays 12.30-3pm, after the school holidays. It also hopes to start sewing bees at retirement homes, libraries and schools.

In the bag: Anti-plastic bag campaigner Gwen Giudici says the Boomerang Bags are a vital part of her arsenal. Picture: supplied

“By starting the group in Rosebud I’ve seen just how keen people are to make a change and Boomerang Bags has provided the perfect platform. Hopefully, our work will inspire more individuals to make a difference, whether they can sew or not,” Ms Giudici said. Stephen Taylor

THE MEANING OF EXISTENCE... AND OTHER SHORT STORIES

Oh Inverted World! By Stuart McCullough I COULD feel it coming. Just the way the manager led me towards my room suggested something out of the ordinary was about to occur. The gravel belched beneath my shoes as I strode across the concourse. Normally, the manager hands you the key and leaves you to your own devices. Not here, though. Instead, the manager was leading me right to the door. I began to wonder whether he might offer to carry me over the threshold. As we neared, he pointed to a metal number affixed to the door. To me it looked a lot like the number ‘six’. How wrong I was. He was pointing. ‘You’re in room number nine,’ he said, with a straight face. Before I could beg to differ, he launched into an explanation. ‘The painter put the number on upside down.’ Even the most cursory of glances told me it had been some considerable time since a painter had been anywhere near it. Meaning that the motel manager had made a conscious decision to leave things as they were and explain to anyone unfortunate enough to be assigned room six / nine the whole tragic story. Glancing down the row of motel rooms, I could see how this could be confusing. Room number six was followed by room number seven which, in turn, was followed by room number eight. So far, so normal. However, after room number eight came another room ‘six’, swiftly followed by room ten. This, I thought to myself, is how anarchy begins. Meanwhile, the manager was

PAGE 28

explaining, at length, how hard it is to get good help in this crazy mixed up world. Although why someone other than the painter couldn’t get a screwdriver and turn the offending digit up the right way was never made clear. I nodded as he spoke, as though the painter really ought to suffer some kind of corporal punishment for so grave a numeric sin. Secretly, though,

Western Port News 11 July 2017

I thought it was the inevitable result of someone being asked to stray beyond the boundaries of their position description. Then again, maybe darker forces were at work. That rather than mere incompetence, this was some kind of revenge. That is, the painter was not so much distracted as disgruntled and could think of no other way by which to show his frustration than by deliberately inverting one

of the room numbers. If so, it would elevate an error to an act of evil genius. Clearly, I was being asked to take careful note of which room was mine, lest I should try and gain entry to the other room also marked as room six. There are few things quite so alarming as the sound of someone trying to open your motel door. As a precaution, I reached into my travel bag and pulled out the can of spray paint I always carry with me in case of an emergency, and put a large red ‘x’ on door. ‘There,’ I said. ‘That should help avoid any confusion’. I could tell by the look on the manager’s face that he was surprised. Gaining entry was only the first of several surprises. The surfaces looked as though they’d been covered with decorative contact sometime in the eighties. Which, incidentally, was probably when the painter last visited. My suspicions were only further confirmed as I edged towards the entertainment system. There, just below the television, was an oldschool ghetto blaster, complete with tape deck. Instantly, I felt foolish for not bringing my cassette collection and contemplated making the five hundred kilometre round-trip just so could finally play some of my best mix tapes. Not only had I neglected to bring my cassettes with me, I’d left the other members of my hip-hop posse at home. When I thought about all the times I’d taken the trouble to throw the other members of my B-Boy crew into the boot when I was heading off somewhere only to end up not needing

them, I felt remarkably foolish. But what were the chances that I should find myself in possession of a perfectly good ghetto blaster and no one with whom I could bust a few moves? Granted, I’d also left behind the big sheet of cardboard we routinely use to avoid carpet burn when performing backspins, but I’m certain I could have improvised. All night I waited for someone to knock on the door, demanding entry to room number six. For hours, I practiced explaining that, no, this was not room number six but room number nine and that the painter had stuffed up everything before doing a runner, never to be heard from again. Had I brought some blank C-90 cassettes, I could have recorded this message rather than rehearse it, saving me valuable minutes in the event that someone attempted to break in to what they wrongly believed was their room. Only as the sun came up, did I feel as though the danger had passed. Tired and cranky, I packed up my things and got ready to hit the road. As I always do, I checked every inch of the room to ensure that I’d left nothing behind. Having put my bags in the boot of the car, I wandered over to return my key. As I checked out, I asked, ‘So, when is the painter coming back?’ The manager blinked, looked at me as if I’d just told him that a zombie had just crawled into my room through the mini-bar and said, ‘I’m the painter.’ And that, I thought, explained everything. stuart@stuartmccullough.com


100 YEARS AGO THIS WEEK...

Councillor Plowman announces his resignation Compiled by Cameron McCullough OWING to his professional duties necessitating his constant absence from the district, especially on the dates of meetings of the Shire Council; Councillor Plowman has definitely announced his intention to resign his seat on the North Riding which he has filled with satisfaction to the ratepayers and credit to himself for a long period. His loss will be greatly felt, for although he has had leave of absence for some time, he has been anything but inactive in other directions in looking after the affairs of the whole shire at the Metropolitan end and many other directions a fact which is very little known, and it is hoped that when his duties are relieved or modified he may at some future time offer his services to the ratepayers. As advertised elsewhere, Mr W. P. Mason announces that he will contest the seat rendered vacant by Councillor Plowman’s retirement. Mr Mason’s long association with the district together with his many preambulations over its highways, combined with his accredited business abilities should qualify him as a worthy successor. As Councillor Oates’ term expires by effluxion of time in August next there will be two seats to fill at the next election, but so far there is no mention of any one opposing him. *** MR S S. Gault will hold his fortnightly sale at Somerville, on Thursday, July 19th. *** PRIZES are offered for the best dressed, best sustained character, and

most original costume, at the Plain and Fancy dress ball on July 25th. *** A CHEQUE for £20 was received by the “Wattle” Club on Monday last, from Mr and Mrs A. H. Sargood, to be used for carrying on the work of entertaining soldiers. *** MRS Haymansen and Mr Ryan are presenting prizes for the euchre tournament, to be held next Thursday evening. Leading scores for the continuous euchre, will also be made known. *** AT a meeting of the Somerville Presbyterian Ladies Guild held on Saturday July 7th Mrs Chas. Grant was elected President. Mrs Grant is an energetic worker and with the support of the members, the Guild should greatly benefit. Mrs Grant is well up in her work being President of the Fruitgrowers Ladies’ Guild and was for 12 months President of the Somerville Red Cross Society. We wish her every success. *** Echoes from the Front. WHERE ARE THE BOYS WE KNOW? The following letter has been received form Pte W. G Connal, dated 29/4/17: I am writing one letter to all at home to give you my version of the torpedoing of the “Ballarat”. I will not give you what I have heard but my own experiences up to leaving here. I was below writing home when I saw men coming hurriedly down the

stairs and thought there was something wrong, those coming down said nothing for a few seconds, when one said, “there is a torpedo coming” and the following moments were dumbfoundering, waiting for her to hit, when she did it was like a dull thud, in fact we did not know whether we were hit or our own gun being fired. I picked up my letter and made for the stairs, which it was impossible to get up on account of men coming down, so you can imagine by that, that they took things pretty easily. By the time I got to the top most men were on their stations, which had been previously alloted to different parties. I was on the raft. There was no credit to be given to the submarine on her achievement as the ship could only do 10 knots per hour and on seeing the torpedo coming the old skipper maneuvered the ship round to such an extent that she was hit only on the starboard propeller which was lost and left a hole in its place through which the water flowed and along the shaft tunnel. Within a very short time the men in the engine room were in water almost to their waists. Eight volunteers were asked for to go down the stoke hole. There was a rush for the job but before they got there the water had reached the stoke hole, so they were not required. When I reached the foredeck, the ship had sunk a lot by the stern. Some of our boats were lowered and had put off but as the ship seemed to be stationary, they were recalled. Before half an hour after the hit, smoke was seen on the horizon in different directions, also a seaplane which looked

Family Day is back at Frankston Power Centre FAMILY Fun Day is bigger and better than ever these school holidays! Come join in the free festivities on Friday 14th July from 11am until 2pm. There will be a variety of free activities on offer for children to enjoy including children’s entertainment, a farm animal petting zoo, face painting, a crazy hair salon and art activities. Lunch will be available from local café retailers who will be providing family friendly specials throughout the event. Mayur Patel from Tasty Bites says “It’s always hard to entertain the kids during winter,

so this event is perfect for families these school holidays with lots of exciting activities on offer. And they are free for local families to enjoy!” “It was such a hit last time, so we’re excited for another great day of family fun here at the Frankston Power Centre.” “Large Format Retail Centres are becoming increasingly popular. Local families are flocking to these centres because of the competitive pricing, easy access to retailers at the one location and convenient parking,” said Philippa Kelly from the LFRA.

fine. As I told you before when writing that I camped on deck always and had my kit with me so I was more lucky than others. The destroyer that was with us knew nothing until we were hit. When they started flying round my word they do shift. The sub showed up where our boats were but the destroyer could not get a shot on account of the danger our own men ran, however we have since heard that the submarine was sunk at 10.30pm by a destroyer aided by a Seaplane the same night. If that is true and I have reason to believe it is, the German victory was very small. When they found the ship was in a sinking condition, the boats were all put off again and the destroyer came alongside and took about 750 men on board. I threw my kit on to her, but it burst through coming in contact with a mine sweeper which was on the stern. I never got on myself, but a trawler was alongside afterwards. There were only 83 of our unit left on board, I amongst them. We were put on the trawler then transferred to life boats, then again the destroyer. When we made straight to Devenport. The destroyers go through the water about 80 knots an hour. It was 2.50p.m. on Anzac day when we were hit and about 4 p.m we were all off and arrived in Devenport about 10pm. We were put up at the Naval Barracks then, but will not mention what I saw or heard. You at home have no idea what our Navy is. Civilians or soldiers are not allowed in the barracks so you can understand

why I will not detail anything that is inside. Be satisfied and thankful to know that we were treated with the utmost consideration and kindness by all concerned. We stayed all night in the barracks and in the morning tested the Devonshire cider which is not too bad. All the lads who took to it went as red as lobsters. We left the barracks for Keyham station at about 4 p.m. Thursday and entrained for our destination which is here. I was never one to write much about scenery, but the trip through Devenshire is most beautiful. All hills and green fields which are separated by turf fences, with hedges on top. Plenty of rabbits and partridges browsing about. We arrived at Borden about 2.30 a.m. on Friday. There is no town much, but plenty of soldiers. We are about 40 miles from London, have to pay our own fares, no leave at all except our embarkation leave which is four days but I heard we are to get survivors leave on account of losing our ship. We were almost lucky enough to dodge the torpedo, but more lucky in getting our S.O.S. out as soon after the wireless system broke down, but was fixed later. The shock astern unseated our gun and before the boat went down it fell overboard. So you see we would have been unable to defend ourselves against the submarine only for the destroyer. *** From the pages of the Mornington Standard, 14 July 1917

Redlegs fail under pressure PENINSULA LEAGUE

By Toe Punt MT Eliza cannot win the 2017 premiership. To achieve the ultimate in 2017 in MPNFL Peninsula Division, a team must be able to beat Frankston YCW – that’s something Mt Eliza can’t do. Not this season anyway. On Saturday, Mt Eliza had its best chance ever of beating the Stonecats despite missing Dave Barton, Jimmy Freeman, Matt Lillie, Brodie Shaw, Robbie Turnball and Sam Gill. Frankston YCW had 15 of its best players out of the team due to either representative football, VFL or injury. Just some of the names missing included Scott McLeod, Kyle Hutchison, Matt LaFontaine, Anthony Barry, Anthony Bruhn, Ben Buckley, Jack Masurek, Paul Minchington, Michael Debenham, Luke Paynter and Danny Hughes. The Stonecats were ripe for the picking and the Redlegs couldn’t get the job done. Justin Van Unen booted six goals in the opening half for Mt Eliza and looked unstoppable, however, when YCW tightened the defensive pressure up through the midfield and ‘JV’ was forced to go one on one with BJ Credlin in the air, the Redlegs lost all avenue to goal. Byron Barrie, Christian Ongarello, Credlin and best afield Kevin Lylak owned the game in the second half. Mt Eliza just does not have a Plan B if Van Unen doesn’t kick goals. There’s no one else who looks likely to kick one. The Redlegs booted just 1.2 in the second half, all of that coming in the final quarter. In the ruck, Ash Eames and Macklin Raine beat Grant Goodall. Goodall won the tap-outs but not many were to advantage and he had little impact

around the ground. For YCW, there’s so much to like about their program. Even with three debutants in the team and another half a dozen who have played less than a dozen senior games, they looked right at home playing the brand and structures that coach Wayne Capp is looking for.

It was a wonderful performance from the Stonecats in the 8.11 (59) to 7.5 (47) victory. Pines may be without key forward Aaron Edwards for the remainder of the season after he suffered what appeared to be a serious knee injury in his team’s 13.15 (93) to 5.6 (36) victory against Langwarrin.

Edwards left the field in the opening quarter after young Langwarrin defender Nick Tuddenham ran across his knee in a bid to prevent him from taking a mark. Edwards was seeing the North Melbourne FC doctor on Sunday to get a full understanding of the injury. Coach Pat Swayne said best case

scenario was that the injury was a medial ligament, which would put him out for between four to six weeks. It was a scrappy affair at Lloyd Park, which had zero atmosphere. Langwarrin started the game with two extra defenders and had defensive forwards (taggers) on Luke Potts and Nick Boswell across half back. Clearly Langwarrin just wanted to minimise the damage. It’s a poor ploy by the Kangas coaching team. I wonder how forwards Kieran Albanese and Gerard Brown feel about the tactic, given they hardly see the footy. The Kangas are a young team who should be encouraged to go out and play the game. Kicking five goals each week is boring dwindling crowds and disenchanting the playing group. Dale Tedge booted five goals for the Pythons after being shifted when Edwards left the field. Edithvale-Aspendale are still in the finals hunt after dishing out a convincing five goal win against Bonbeach, 12.11 (83) to 7.7 (49). The Eagles were three goals up at quarter time and never looked back with Mick Meehan booting four goals and Brendan Neville and Chris Wylie dominating. Chelsea caused the upset of the round, beating Seaford by five points, 14.12 (96) to 14.7 (91). Matt Ponton booted six goals and Dave Willett four for the Gulls while Todd Gardiner dominated. Brad Doyle and Tommy Shaw were the best of the Tigers, who have been ordinary in the past month. In the final game, Mornington belted Karingal by 80 points 21.14 (140) to 9.6 (60). The news is worse for the Bulls also with legend player Luke Van Raay doing an ACL last week after 292 games.

Final five is set in Nepean League NEPEAN LEAGUE By Toe Punt THE final five is set in MPNFL Nepean Division, six rounds before the end of the final home and away game. Dromana won its sixth game on the trot on Saturday and in doing so, went two games clear of both Red Hill (sixth) and Somerville (seventh). Given the Eagles and the Hillmen have tougher runs home, it appears now that the Tigers are in the perfect position to grab a spot in the finals. Furthermore, the Tigers are now just a game and percentage off second place and should be now aiming for a great outcome from the season. The form of the Tigers is a credit to coach Ricki Johnston and his support team. After the first five weeks, the Tigers had won just one game (against Tyabb) and were on the end of a couple of hidings. Seven games later and they have not dropped one since. Ethan Johnstone was superb again on Saturday with six goals while Jay Hutchison and a returning Sam Fowler booted four in the 23.10 (148) to 10.16 (76) win. Paul Ransom and Jordan Alves were

PAGE 32

the best of the Yabbies. Red Hill booted the first goal of the last quarter against Frankston Bombers on Saturday to give themselves every chance of winning and keeping their season alive. Thirty minutes later and the Bombers had kicked the last six goals of the game to win comfortably 17.11 (113) to 10.8 (68). Sam Fox put on a clinic in the final term and finished with four goals while coach Beau Muston also finished with four majors. Matty Hyden found himself forward for the Hillmen and kicked four while Ben Hughes was good with three also. It has been a season of disappointment for the Hillmen, who recruited well in the off season but will fail to make finals. Hastings bounced back from a horror defeat last week, belting Rye 23.12 (150) to 9.10 (64). Dale Alanis kicked six and Shaun Foster four for the winners while Brendan Dunne led from the front. It was a tough day for the Demons with Harry Witty and Adam Kirkwood among their best. Rosebud put an end to Somerville’s season also, belting the home team by

more than 13 goals. Celebrating its 125th year, the Somerville crowd was eager for a repeat performance of last week when it came from behind to beat Frankston. However, the loaded Buds, who had Keegan Downie back with three goals, spoilt the party. Jai Nanscawen was back from Stingrays too and booted six goals for the Buds while twin brother Reid also played, along with Campbell Hustwaite. Bryce Kellerman was the best of the Eagles in the 8.6 (54) to 20.15 (135) loss. In the battle of the Panthers, Devon Meadows smashed Pearcedale to the tune of almost 100 points. Allan Murray booted seven goals and Kyle Beveridge dominated with three goals in the 22.15 (147) to 7.12 (54) thumping. Harry Prior was Pearcedale’s best with two goals. In the final game, Sorrento belted Crib Point by more than 20 goals, 26.20 (176) to 5.13 (43). Leigh Poholke booted seven majors and Nick Corp and James Hallahan four each for the Sharks while Shayne Ainsworth was solid for the Pies.

Kilner to quit Baxter, Skye still in the hunt SOCCER

By Craig MacKenzie ROY Kilner will step down as head coach of State 4 South promotion candidate Baxter at season’s end and has a succession plan in place. Kilner made the decision to call it a day some weeks back and wants current first team keeper Francis Beck to become the club’s new player-coach. Kilner has told the first team squad of his intentions and Beck has been given more responsibility in overseeing training sessions. While Beck is yet to fully commit to the succession plan there’s also the matter of whether or not his candidature will be approved by the committee that leads the club into the 2018 season. “I don’t think there will be an issue with the committee because Francis has been there for a long time and he’s a club favourite,” said Kilner, whose sons Liam and Owen are senior team mainstays. When the final whistle blows in Baxter’s last league game of 2017 Kilner will have been in charge for three full seasons. “I’ve got no idea how Gus Macleod (Langwarrin coach) can last 19 or 20 seasons. He needs psychological help,” said Kilner with a laugh. “Coaching takes so much out of you – your family time, your work time – because once you put your hand up for a job like that you do so heart and soul. “You put everything into training sessions and talking to the boys before the match then you’re watching the game and you’re kicking every ball, heading every ball – it’s absolutely exhausting.” Kilner is 52 and came to Australia when he was 26 having played with Peebles Rovers and Tweeddale Rovers in his native Scotland as a right-sided midfielder. “One of my biggest regrets was not concentrating more on my football as a player because my sights were set on coming to Australia and that’s why I encourage my boys so much and hope they keep playing for as long as they can.” The chances of Baxter saying goodbye to Kilner on a winning note weren’t helped in their last match, a 3-1 home loss against promotion rival Bayside Argonauts and this Saturday they travel to Fotheringham Reserve to take on another promotion aspirant in Dandenong South. It’s a daunting task but one that Kilner is relishing. “We’re definitely still targeting promotion and we’ll turn things right around against Dandy South on Saturday,” said Kilner.

Baxter boss: Roy Kilner in action on match day. Picture: John Punshon “To me they are the strongest team in the league but I’m delighted to be playing them and I can guarantee that the boys will be up for this one.” Kilner’s confidence is in part due to the availability of new signing Grady Vickers, a young striker from Casey Comets. “Don’t be surprised to see him playing from the start. “We need the three points and while a draw keeps us in it by jings a win there would really be something and I think we can do it. “You won’t see the lacklustre performance that you saw against Bayside Argonauts.” Kilner is one of the more colourful characters in the local game and is never short of a word but he was initially reluctant to comment when questioned about his legacy at Baxter Park. “That’s really not for me to say but for others to judge. “What I am chuffed about though is that we’ve still got the nucleus of the players we had three years ago and they have got themselves into a position where they believe they can win games and go from strength to strength. “When I arrived the players weren’t that interested and didn’t care much win, lose or draw so to see them winning games now and wanting to achieve success is very satisfying.” Although Baxter is currently in fifth spot in the league it is just three points behind the top two sides so Kilner is

still a chance to say goodbye waving to the masses from the open-top bus he often has joked about hiring should his side win the championship. Meanwhile State 3 South-East promotion candidate Skye United kept the pressure on second-placed Brandon Park with a 2-1 home win in its catch-up fixture against Brighton last Wednesday night. The result leaves Skye two points behind Brandon Park with a superior goal difference. Skye led 1-0 at half-time thanks to a Marcus Collier header at the back post following Jacob Scotte-Hatherly’s 32nd minute corner. Brighton hit back a few minutes into the second half when Alex Greatorex was at the far post to head in from close range. The winner came from substitute Lawrence Komba who miraculously fashioned a finish from a near impossible angle on the right of the area 10 minutes from time after beating Brighton keeper Adrian Drury in a race to the ball. Striker Nick Theodore has quit Skye citing lack of game time and is considering joining Bayside Argonauts while midfielder Tom Natoli has rejoined Brighton after a short stint at Seaford United. The word from Lawton Park is that veteran striker Caleb Nicholes could retire at the end of the season. Nicholes turns 35 in November and is in his third stint with Langy. He joined Langwarrin reserves in

1999 under coach Terry Kirkham and the following year first team supremo Gus Macleod gave the then teenager his chance of senior football. Nicholes scored his first senior goal for Langwarrin on Saturday 15 July 2000 at Lawton Park in a 6-0 win over Nunawading City in a State 3 SouthEast clash. Nicholes took a year out of the game in 2001 then joined Fitzroy City in the Premier League in 2002. However, halfway through that season he switched to Frankston Pines and his five goals in 10 games played a part in Pines’ successful push to gain promotion to Premier League. In 2003 he played with East Richmond in State 3 South-East but returned to Pines the following season and started in 16 games and scored six goals but when the chance arose at the end of the season to rejoin Langwarrin he jumped at it. In the first half of the 2007 season he played with Springvale White Eagles in the Victorian Premier League but rejoined Langy halfway through the season. During his time at Langwarrin he has been a regular club and league leading goalscorer and has played 244 league games and scored 190 league goals. He has captained Langwarrin and has won numerous club and league awards. Nicholes and wife Zoe are senior ministers at Southern Lights church in Skye and have two daughters, Aurora

and Eva. His late grandfather Stan Nicholes was inducted into Sport Australia’s Hall of Fame in 1998. The former weightlifter was a sports science pioneer who was internationally acclaimed for his work with some of the most iconic figures in Australian sport including Olympic gold medallists Herb Elliott and Peter Antonie, grand slam tennis champions Margaret Court and Frank Sedgman and a host of AFL luminaries including Tony Lockett, Ron Barassi, Tom Hafey and Kevin Sheedy. Stan Nicholes was also involved in two Richmond premierships and was awarded the Medal of the Order of Australia (OAM) in 1986 for his service to sport as a fitness consultant. In other news local women’s NPL outfit Southern United had victory in its grasp but had to settle for a 1-1 draw with Alamein at Comets Stadium on Saturday. Southern took the lead through Candela Ferreyra Bas in the 75th minute but Alamein’s second-half substitute Lucy Richards snatched a last-gasp equaliser. It’s been a breakout season for Southern’s senior team which finished last in its inaugural season in 2016 but is currently in fifth spot seven points behind Alamein. The club fields seniors, under-18s, under-15s and under-13s in the elite competition and tasted success last year when its under-15s won the grand final. This season Southern’s under-13s led by head coach Debbie Nicholls and assistant Emma Bracken are on top of the table and consolidated their position with a 2-0 win over Alamein on Saturday. Southern’s goals came from Candice Kilderry and Rhys McKenna and diminutive midfield dynamo Alessandra Davis impressed with her range of passing and vision. The under 15s match ended 0-0 and Alamein won the under-18s clash 4-1 with Zoe Cooper scoring for Southern. This weekend’s games: FRIDAY, 8.30pm: Casey Comets v Langwarrin (Comets Stadium), Doncaster Rovers v Frankston Pines (Anderson Park). SATURDAY 3pm: Clifton Hill v Mornington (Quarries Park), Doveton v Peninsula Strikers (Waratah Reserve), Middle Park v Skye Utd (Albert Park Field 16), Dandenong South v Baxter (Fotheringham Reserve), Bayside Argonauts v Rosebud Heart (Shipston Reserve), Somerville Eagles v Chelsea (Barber Reserve).

League chief dodges questions on local footy’s future By Toe Punt AFL SE Regional General Manager John Anderson believes that one of the two options presented in the senior football competition review will provide a “very strong premier competition”. Anderson, who spoke in two separate videos last Wednesday, said he “believed a region of our size and stature ought to have a strong premier competition. He went on to say that “this is a view shared by many clubs”. Mr Anderson is consistent with this push despite 20 of the 22 MPNFL clubs responding to the recommendations last week, opposing the recommendations in the review.

All clubswere given the opportunity to put questions to Mr Anderson in an email early last week. Yours truly was also invited to provide questions. Despite more than 20 questions being asked, Mr Anderson chose to answer only those he wanted to, before signing-off on the finished product before it was released last Friday. Questions Mr Anderson failed to answer included:- The clubs have expressed interest in meeting with AFL SE collectively. Why has there been a reluctance to speak to the clubs collectively? - Given AFL SE proposed the recommendations in the document, which have been opposed, is it not up to the administration to present

additional alternatives for clubs to consider? - If a resolution can’t be found between AFL SE and the MPNFL Clubs, where will that leave the AFL SE Region. Can AFL SE continue to be viable without the support of the MPNFL Clubs? Another question that was asked was the impact of juniors and netball in AFL South East’s decision. Mr Anderson chose to ignore the junior aspect of the question. In answering about netball, Mr Anderson had this to say: “We acknowledge there’s difficulties – we’re asking for solutions – if a certain structure was in place, how would netball look?”

Isn’t that what AFL South East should be providing clubs – solutions? Despite extending the deadline by a week, Mr Anderson said in the interview that “we understand change is difficult.” What change is Mr Anderson referring to? Has a decision been made? My understanding was that AFL South East was still seeking feedback. Mr Anderson said there was an ability for the public to provide feedback. “For interested people in the league we manage we encourage their feedback – the more of that we get the better. Our understanding is that there are people within clubs who don’t see eye to eye on the stance taken by the club,” Mr Anderson said.

Again, what has this got to do with the general public? Feedback should only come from member clubs. Club executives have been voted by their members to represent the best interests of their club. The public’s opinion should have no bearing on AFL South East’s recommendation. Finally, Mr Anderson said “what is in the best interests of football in this region, in the end, is what this is all about.” Once again, MPNFL Clubs are all in agreeance that the two recommendations presented in the review are not in the best interests of their region, which includes juniors and netball.

Frankston Gift ready to be run in 2018 By Ben Triandafillou IT has been six years since the running of the ‘Gift’ on the peninsula but the Frankston Athletics Club has announced that they will reignite the event and host the 2018 Frankston Gift on Sunday 14 January. Next year’s Frankston Gift will be run at the Frankston Football Oval with $1500 available in the prize pool for each of the women’s and men’s gifts. Ready to run: Frankston Athletic Club athlete Ebony Lane sprints to the line at the 2017 Stawell Gift. Photo: supplied

The Frankston Gift will be run on the same weekend as the 2018 Rye Gift which the Frankston Athletics Club believes will only have a positive effect on the event. “We are hoping people from the Rye Gift will stay down on the peninsula and come and compete the following day in Frankston,” Frankston Athletics Club treasurer Craig McConchie said. “We have deliberately chosen to run our events over different distances to the Rye Gift so that the runners aren’t repeating what they had run the previous day.” As the races are “professional” races, prize money is offered for all events, which is generally paid to

everyone who makes a final. Each athlete is given a mark or handicap based on their ability allowing all competitors to have an equal opportunity to win their chosen event. There are 15 proposed events on the program, including a football/ netball club relay and an emergency services relay. The Frankston Athletics Club is now looking for sponsors for the Frankston Gift to help raise the prizemoney that will be on offer. If you have any queries about the event itself or sponsorship opportunities, contact the club at frankstongift@ hotmail.com.

Mornington scores wheelchair basketball clinic By Ben Triandafillou WHEELCHAIR Basketball will make its way to the Mornington Peninsula with a weekly clinic starting Sunday 23 July. Mornington District Basketball Association (MDBA) will host the weekly clinics at the Mornington Secondary College basketball stadium. It hopes to eventually lead on to a wheelchair basketball league. The MDBA has been taking registrations-of-interest from wheelchair basketballers since early-April after being contacted by a young local boy. Ella Linton-Smith, a representative of the association, says it had been looking at building a wheelchair basketball league for some time and was inspired to take action from an 11-year-old boy named Riley from the Mornington Peninsula. “We were contacted by Disability Sport and Recreation Victoria and they told us about an 11-year-old boy in our area who was keen to play wheelchair basketball,” Linton-Smith said. “The closest place for people on the peninsula to play wheelchair basketball is Kilsyth, so, obviously, it makes sense for us to establish a program here and make the game more accessible to everybody. “We have had a lot of support from Basketball Victoria helping us to source sports chairs and our local Bunnings have also kindly offered to donate a shed for storage.

Sad loss: Roger Booth died due to a suspected heart attack. Photo: supplied Eager to start: Eleven-year-old boy Riley can’t wait for Wheelchair Basketball to make its way to the peninsula. Photo: supplied

“We’re thrilled to be able to set something like this up and we look forward to seeing the program grow over time.” Within two weeks of seeking expressions-of-interest the MDBA had approaches from nine players aged 1018 – a figure which continues to grow. The clinics will run for an hour on Sunday afternoons, kicking off with a free come-and-try session 1pm, 23 July. They are open to anyone interested with no restrictions on who can join.

Mornington loses hardworking veteran jockey By Ben Triandafillou MORNINGTON Racecourse held a funeral on Monday to remember veteran jockey, Roger Booth, who had become a familiar face at the Mornington racetrack and on the Victorian country racing circuit. Booty, as known by many in the racing industry, was a genuine hardworking jockey who’d get up before the crack of dawn to ride trackwork for a variety of trainers. “He was always the first at the track and the last to leave,” retired Mornington horse trainer Barry Howe said following the death of Roger Booth, aged 55.

After the second race at Darwin on Saturday 1 July Roger Booth suffered a suspected heart attack. Booth guided the Neil Dyer-trained Senor Juez into sixth position and returned to the mounting yard before collapsing shortly after dismounting. He was reportedly conscious after being revived by ambulance staff at the track but suffered a heart attack when being transferred to the Darwin hospital and died. Booth came across from New Zealand a couple of decades ago and tried his luck as a flat and jumps jockey. He spent most of his career in Mornington riding trackwork and the odd winner for Mornington-based trainers

such as Pat Carey, Eric Musgrove and Gary Carson to name a few. “He was quite a popular bloke because he worked hard and battled away,” Gary Carson said. Over the last six months Booth tried his luck at Cranbourne and headed up to the Top End for the Darwin Cup Carnival. Booth’s career on the Victorian country racing circuit included wins in the 1997 Yarra Glen Cup, 2008 Burrumbeet Cup, 2012 Great Western Cup, the 2012 and 2013 Gunbower Gold Cup, the 2014 Hanging Rock Cup and Warracknabeal Cup and the 2015 Manangatang Cup.

Netballers fly the flag again for Crib Point CRIB POINT FNC By Jacob Collins IT was a strong successful day last week at Sorrento. C grade had a 61 goal win and with Amie jumping from defence into goals proving no challenge. From the very first whistle the girls were off to a great start and the ball flowed efficiently down the court all game. Shout out to Laura and Meg who stepped up from D grade. BOC went to Meg who had an amazing game in WA. B grade had a slow start being only up by 1 goal at quarter time but the girls stepped it up in the second quarter and had a strong 35 goal win. BOC went to

Holly Adams who showed a lot of fight and hunger for the ball and had a great game. A grade showed strength in every part of the court with their 73 goal win. Even with the mix up of Adrienne into goals and Eb into WA the girls weren’t stepping off the pedal. BOC went to Dionne who was flawless in defence and centre plucking intercepts out at every turn. This week we invite Devon to our courts for what will be 4 great matches of netball. *** It is always a challenge when heading to Sorrento to take on the home team

but this did not deter the U19’s from firing. It was a tough contest for the entirety of the match with both teams fighting for a finals position. Sorrento were in a winning position heading into the last but a strong Crib Point side were able to wrestle back the lead and finished with a one-point win in a frantic finish. Josh Fenwick was best afield, providing strength and commitment at the contest. Aaron Whitford followed on with his good form from the club function the week previously and provided run and flare off the half back line. The team were lucky to walk away with the win but will be happy with the result. Next week the side is

given a break and will be looking to refresh for a big run home in the latter stages of the season. The reserves side showed good signs early providing a contest to the sharks. A scrappy match suited the side however they were not able to sustain their intensity for the duration of the match. A 23-point margin at 3 quarter time blew out to a 64-point loss once the game opened up however this was not reflective of the effort the magpies put in. Joely Monger was good in the ruck all day providing solid contest whilst Dan “Whitey” White was exceptional throughout the midfield all day, providing great leadership. The odds were

against the magpies but the side were able to put in a very solid effort proving that won’t back down to a challenge for the second week in a row. The senior side were up against it when they travelled down to Sorrento to take on the unbeaten Sharks. The magpies improved upon their previous performance against the sharks providing a better scorecard however it was still a strong Sorrento win. Shayne Ainsworth was hard at the ball and responded well to the role he was given whilst Luke Herrington was also good in tight. The team will be looking to get back on the winners list next weekend when they face Devon Meadows at home.

Blues bounce back against Rye HASTINGS FNC ON Saturday Hastings senior football side travel to Rye in what loomed as a must win for the club after an very ordinary performance the week before. But as all good sides do, the boys responded in the manner that we all thought they would, coming away with a very convincing victory. Senior Report Very proud coach while writing this report the players responded the way l thought they would really taking the game on playing for each other. We got jump in the first few minutes in the game before we settled, we started to put score board pressure on which in turn allowed our boys to play with freedom, our use of the ball at

times was very good, our tackling count and pressure was back to where we like it to be. Our forwards look lively throughout the afternoon with Dale Allanis kicking a bag of six goals and Luke Clarke leading very well and the dangerous Colin McVeigh doing his thing. Reserves Report We came against Rye on their home ground, where traditionally the reserves have struggled in the past. We started the game pretty good with most of the play being played in our half of the ground. Unfortunately in the first quarter we were unable to score as many goals in which we hoped. The second quarter I asked the guys to lower their eyes a bit and be a little bit patient with the ball. We did that and

we started to really dominate the game. The third and last quarter we really took hold of the game, our skills started to improve and we really took pride in finishing off some really good work created from our midfield. We ran out the game 10 goal winners. Best players Dylan Parlberg, Steve Williams and Danny Edwards. Under 19s Report Rye at Rye was the challenge set for us this week and with the return of Matt Foy the boys were up and about. We got off to our usual slow start and allowed Rye too much time and space and they capitalised with early goals. We then controlled play for long periods but tried to be too slick with handball. We failed to capitalise but because of great defensive efforts went

into half time just in front. The second half showed that we just don’t commit to training as we fumbled the ball and missed targets regularly, this allowed Rye to run away with the win. Best on the day Alex Clemens, Will White, Sean Hewitt and Joel Taylor. Netball Report D grade continue to be committed to training hard and working on improving their netball skills. Rye proved too strong for them but they did improve the score line from the first time they played them. Best on the day were Fiona Kain, Kirstie Jones and Brodie Moncrieff in defence and Riana Smallacombe in goals. C grade continued their good form coming away with a great win. Keely Gay was elevated to C grade and was

fantastic in the goal keeper position and well supported by Alison Jordan and Ruby Hannaford. The girls are really gelling as a team and the results are starting to come. B grade had an outstanding win. Emma Smith and Shaye Williams once again goaled with great accuracy whilst all defenders continued to give their opposition no space and intercepted consistently throughout the match. The work through the centre court has steadily improved as the season has gone on, resulting in conversion rates increasing with each match. *** Next game Saturday 15th July, Hastings vs Frankston Bombers at Hastings all games commence 10.00 am
