All aboard for pirate fun day at school MORNINGTON Special Developmental School’s pirate-themed day on Friday 9 June raised money for The Kids for Cancer Project, with a shipload of pirate adventurers joining forces to support the cause. Piratey fun and games, such as walk-the-plank, pirate coits, pin the patch on the pirate, treasure hunts, baking pirate cookies, listening to salty stories and, of course, pirate bingo were fun activities for pupils and staff who dressed as pirates for the event. “It was a fantastic day and many thanks to all our buccaneers and their families for their support,” teacher Angela Holland said. “It was a terrific way to raise money for a worthwhile cause.”

Two sides, but different coin for towns Keith Platt keith@mpnews.com.au THE imbalance in spending of ratepayers’ money across the Mornington Peninsula is starkly shown in amounts allocated for Australia Day, a national celebration aimed at bringing communities closer together. Figures presented to councillors show the disparity between money allocated to communities facing Port Phillip to those on the Western Port

side of the peninsula. While representing just a small part of the shire’s $212 million overall budget, the Australia Day proposal further illustrates the widening gap in spending between the communities. Although not yet adopted, councillors were last week asked to give tacit approval – with a view to later voting during a public council meeting – to spend $302,000 on Australia Day 2018. However, it is understood some councillors baulked at approving the Australia day budget after seeing the

disparity between towns. The proposed amount for 2018 is $26,000 more than this year, with Mornington receiving almost all of the increase and Rosebud losing $1000. Mornington, which has the largest Australia Day celebrations on the peninsula – including a street parade and fireworks - was allocated $141,000 while Hastings was being offered $10,000. No two towns were the same, with Rye coming out second highest with $50,000, followed by Rosebud with

$43,000.Next in line was Dromana with $30,000, followed by Mt Eliza, $13,000 and Sorrento $5000 (divided between ceremonies at the RSL and bowls clubs). The shire’s marketing department gets a modest boost, going from $9650 this year to $10,000 next year. The Australia Day budgets for the other towns stays the same, except for Sorrento which gets $1000 more, split between the RSL and bowls clubs. The figures follow on from the shire’s proposed 2017/18 capital

Information cost a shock for animal advocates Stephen Taylor steve@mpnews.com.au A MORNINGTON-based animal advocacy group is resorting to a Go Fund Me campaign to raise money for a costly freedom-of-information request. The group has been quoted $1108 for Mornington Peninsula Shire Council’s FoI officer to answer six detailed questions about the community animal shelter, in Watt Rd, Mornington. The shire wants half of the cost ($554) before starting a search for the information. The shire’s FoI officer estimated it would take 40-53 hours to research answers for the group which has campaigned for greater transparency in the shire’s handling of impounded dogs and cats. NSW resident Judith Anne Carter made the FoI request for Rosy Fischer, of Mornington, who is campaigning for a no-kill policy at the animal shelter. “We have requested information regarding the community animal shelter at Mornington and they want to charge us over $1100 for information they say is not in the public interest,” Ms Fischer said. “I think it is an absolute disgrace that

we have to do it to find out something that should be freely available to the public. “As a ratepayer, I want to know what has happened to animals at this pound and I am very dubious re the statistics. “I also tried to find out things like the budget for the pound, but it was listed with another division within the environment protection department, so therefore I couldn’t tell what the budget was for the shelter alone.” The FoI request seeks details about animals held at the shelter over the 12 months to January; vets bills for euthanising animals; where pets have been rehoused; how many cats and dogs are registered with the shire; the fate of 54 cats unaccounted for; and the shelter’s budget. The group was told by FoI officer Kate McNab in a letter that “the documents being sought are not in the public interest …” and that access charges were applicable. Also, that much of the information was “already publicly available” through community and annual reports. “Specific details of the requested documents … with respect to requesting impound numbers is not seen to be in line with general public interest as this information would be irrelevant … to the general public.”

Dolphin group online promoting ‘wonder’ bays THE Hastings-based Dolphin Research Institute has launched a new online publication Reflections to “celebrate” Port Phillip and Western Ports bays. “Reflections is a magazine that will take you into the lives of some amazing people and marine life that live in and around our bays. The goal is to create a friendly voice to help Melburnians to appreciate and care for our bays,” DSI executive director Jeff Weir said. Launched on World Oceans Day the first edition includes articles on Victoria's commissioner for environmental sustainability who steered the production of our first State of the Bays Report; the institute’s David Donnelly and his "whale of a life"; winter in the bays; and a champion sailor who

produces outdoor wear. “Reflections fills a gap in our ability to engage the wider community about the wonders of our bays,” Mr Weir said. “This provides an exciting new tool to share stories about our living marine treasures to a much wider audience who are not the usual converted ones.” Mr Weir said social research conducted by the institute that showed most Victorians “value Queensland’s marine live above our own”. “This is in spite of the life in our bays being globally significant on many, many fronts.” M Weir said about 90 per cent or more of most species were found “only in our region”. He said the bays are healthier than they were 50 years ago and in the past

few weeks dolphins had been seen in the Yarra, Maribyrnong and Patterson rivers, and humpback and killer whales recorded off the entrance to both bays, “Port Phillip has been colonised by normally ocean-living common dolphins when many places are losing their resident dolphins,” Mr Weir said. “Western Port has more than one per cent of the global population of six species of birds, which means that if they were humans that would mean six time 70 million people.” Mr Weir said Reflections, produced by the wildlife tourism company Wildiaries and the institute, would reach an “initial audience” of more than 100,000 and is available through www.dolphinresearch.org

Tougher rules bid for ‘party houses’ Stephen Taylor steve@mpnews.com.au

Safe ashore: Volunteer marine rescue crews relax after their successful training exercise.

Kayaker ‘rescued’ from Mud Island FIVE kayakers who left St Leonards at 7.30am for Rye via Mud Island in Port Phillip on Sunday 4 June set the scene for a joint training exercise by volunteer marine rescue services. In the contrived scenario, one of the group became ill and was taken by three others to Mud Island, while another disappeared from sight. Southern Peninsula Rescue Squad members hosted the exercise with crews from Volunteer Marine Rescue, Mornington, and Coast Guard from Queenscliff and Safety Beach and the Water Police. Southern Peninsula Rescue and the Safety Beach Coast Guard were dispatched to Mud

Island to recover the kayaker who was ill, while Volunteer Marine Rescue Mornington, the Queenscliff Coast Guard and the Water Police began a search for the “missing” kayaker. “Working in and around the shallow waters near Mud Island can be quite a challenge,” Southern Peninsula Rescue Squad president Eileen Murray said. “Fortunately everything went to plan and both ‘patients’ were rescued.” The Water Police, who came down from Williamstown, oversaw the session and debriefed the crews afterwards.

THE lucrative rental of short-stay “party houses” on the Mornington Peninsula will be tightly regulated if a new residents’ group gets its way. The We Live Here group is pushing for tougher rules on the letting of holiday houses over social media to hordes of party-goers who ruin neighbours’ weekends with late-night noise and alcohol-fuelled aggression. Neighbours of one Rye holiday house – rented out for a reported $800 a night several times last year – said noisy parties and inebriated partygoers were making their weekends a nightmare. The practise is expected to grow as more people flock to online short-stay rental sites, such as Airbnb, Stayz, and Booking.com. Acting Sergeant Warren Morgan, of Rosebud police, said young people’s parties at short-stay rentals – especially over holiday weekends – generated the “bulk of noise complaints” from neighbours. The We Live Here group’s Marshall Delves said members were hoping a Legislative Council inquiry into the Owners Corporations Amendment (Short-Stay Accommodation) Bill 2016 would “level the playing field”. The council’s environment and planning committee reportedly considers the bill “inadequate and unfair to many parties – including residents” – and has recommended changes to the legislation. The committee also recommends the government consider giving owners’ corporations the power to regulate short-stays in their own buildings, and work with the police to examine safety issues.

“It’s an amenity thing that affects your neighbours,” Mr Delves said. “If you own a house or an apartment and you want to rent out a room on Airbnb that’s fine, but if you want to rent out a whole house over a weekend you should be registered and regulated. “Every house on Airbnb should be regulated.” While the group is made up mainly of bodies corporate in apartment blocks and unit developments, Mr Delves said it was not city focused and had freestanding property owners as members. He said 25 per cent of Melbourne residents lived in strata communities – including a growing number on the Mornington Peninsula – which were often made available as short-stay rentals. “We have almost 200 buildings across the state sharing our concerns and that figure will grow,” he said. Another problem is that short-stay operators making money from the “party houses” are taking money from registered hotels, guest houses and B&Bs which paid rates and taxes and were governed by strict guidelines. “Residents right across Victoria are growing increasingly frustrated and it’s time we found a solution that puts everyone on a level playing field,” Mr Delves said.

Rallying against state’s new planning rules PLANNING expert Michael Buxton will be at Hastings next week to outline changes to the state’s planning laws that allow three-storey houses to be built across the Mornington Peninsula and fast track developments previously subject to public comment and objection. “We are wanting a large attendance at this meeting because, in memory, there hasn’t been a greater threat to the peninsula’s unique identity,” organiser Peter Avery, of the Peninsula Speaks community group, said. Dr Buxton, professor environment and planning with the School of Global Urban and Social Studies at RMIT University, has held senior positions in four Victorian planning and environmental agencies and has contributed extensively to national and state environmental and planning policy. He has held many government positions and formerly headed the Premier’s Green Wedge Working Party which developed the proposal for a legislated urban growth boundary and new green wedge zones. He has published extensively on urban form, peri-urban development and outer urban development. Although the government’s has already gazetted new planning rules to apply across the state, Mornington Peninsula Shire has only in the past few weeks voiced its displeasure. The mayor Cr Bev Colomb issued a news release stating the council had “expressed concern” at the changes and wanted to meet with Planning Minister Richard Wynne. Her statement came days after Red Hill ward councillor David Gill told The News the new planning rules “may lead to further degrading” of towns across the peninsula. Previously protected by restrictive planning overlays, the shire’s own planning policy is now likely to be overruled by state laws.

MICHAEL Buxton Council officers - without reference to council - will be able to issue permits for developments worth up to $250,000 in green wedge zones, $500,000 in commercial areas and $1 million in industrial areas. “Council first heard about the government’s proposed changes the day it was released by the Minister for Planning to the public for the first time – 27 March 2017,” the shire’s planning services executive manager David Bergin last week told The News. “The state government has gazetted planning changes that threaten the Mornington Peninsula with shire wide three storey houses as of right, green wedge controls being watered down, our rural zones under pressure from housing and broadened ‘Vicsmart’ planning permits granted with no community notice and no right of appeal,” Cr Gill said last week. “All concerned residents should come along to the rally with Michael Buxton to voice our opposition to these planning changes that have been made without consultation.” The rally organised by Peninsula Speaks starts 7pm on Thursday 22 June at Hastings Community Hub, 1973 Frankston-Flinders Rd.

International day to end elder abuse THE often-hidden scourge of elder abuse will be highlighted on Thursday (15 June) with World Elder Abuse Awareness Day on the Mornington Peninsula. Members of PACE – the Peninsula Advisory Committee for Elders – will man stalls at Rosebud Plaza, near Coles, and at Bentons Square Shopping Centre, Mornington from 10.30am. Their theme is “We can stop Elder Abuse”. The day aims to remind residents to honour older people and uphold their right to live in safety, with dignity and respect. Many older people are sometimes mistreated by someone close to them. The abuse is any act which causes them harm. It may be physical, social, financial, psychological or sexual and can include mistreatment and neglect. The World Health Organisation estimates that up to 10 per cent of older people experience

elder abuse worldwide. PACE members will be handing out purple ribbons and also giving information on where people can go for information and assistance. To highlight the message, the Lions Club of McCrae has arranged for the lighthouse to be lit up in purple – the international prevention of elder abuse colour. On Thursday 22 June, the commissioner for Senior Victorians and Victorian ambassador for Prevention of Elder Abuse, Gerard Mansour, will join with Gary Ferguson, of Seniors Rights Victoria, at a forum on elder abuse 2-3.30pm at the Mornington Peninsula Shire Offices, 2 Queen St, Mornington. No bookings are required. Details from the shire’s positive ageing officer Helen Ridgeway, 5950 1733; Seniors Rights Victoria 1300 368 821 or by visiting seniorsrights.org.au

Sammy J brings Phantom show ‘home’ Neil Walker neil@mpnews.com.au A GARDENER at Mt Eliza’s Peninsula School unwittingly set comedian Sammy J off a planned legal career garden path and into a world of adventure and justice dispensed by The Phantom comic book character. A path leading to an escape from a legal career after ditching law degree studies at university for full-time comedy capers. A path that would ultimately see Sammy J “commit a crime in Canberra” and break the law he previously swore to study. A path that would lead the comedian to become obsessed with “one of the least popular superheroes in the world”. The ghost who walks. The man who cannot die. The Phantom. It’s a tale Sammy J is bringing back “home” to the Frankston Arts Centre this month in a second performance, following a quick sellout of the first slated show, of his nationally toured Hero Complex show. A T-shirt depicting superhero The Phantom worn by the school gardener when Sammy J was a ten-year-old student at Mt Eliza’s Peninsula School triggered a series of life-changing incidents for the comedian, satirist and writer including meeting his wife, having a daughter and Canberra strife and crime. It was, he says, “my ‘Batman Begins’ moment even though it’s the wrong superhero”, and his life would never be the same again. “If he hadn’t been wearing that T-shirt

The Phantom menace: Comedian Sammy J has wrestled with his obsession with the oldest costumed superhero in the world since childhood.

and I hadn’t liked The Phantom then all of those things wouldn’t have happened as a result,” Sammy J told The News. The T-shirt sparked an interest in the purple-clad hero that saw the young Peninsula School schoolboy seeking out comics to read about the exploits of his new hero, the first costumed hero in 1936 who endures to this day against the odds. “He’s objectively one of the least popular superheroes in the world but for some reason, The Phantom spoke to me,” he said. “I couldn’t play sports so had to find another way of fitting in and that became telling jokes and then in my high school years writing songs about my teachers.” Unfortunately, The Phantom wasn’t much help on the winning friends and influencing people front upon first discovery. “Looking back now, maybe The Phantom appealed to me because it was ‘my own’. But on the downside I had no-one to share The Phantom with. I just double-downed and retreated into this world of buying comics and merchandise and really becoming quite obsessed.” The colour purple would burst into Sammy J’s life again after he left a life of law. This time in the form of puppet character and comedy double act partner Randy Feltface. “Maybe it made me think there was something in that,” he said. In 2014, Sammy J shared a stage with another colourful character at The Wheeler Centre -- former Frankston MP Geoff Shaw. Shaw was booked months in advance for Sammy J’s Democratic Party, “a way to have some fun with politicians” that

has now developed into an ABC TV series, and turned up for the show the very week he became the first MP in a century to be suspended from Victoria’s parliament. “Suddenly he was all over the news and was threatening to bring down the government,” Sammy J said last week. “To his great credit, he kept his commitment ... and appeared in a room packed full of journalists.” The comedian likened Mr Shaw to another controversial politician -- US President Donald Trump. “You could almost argue he was a bit of pre-Trump flavour.” Unlike President Trump, Sammy J says Geoff Shaw “took criticism to his face” during the interview at The Wheeler Centre. “It was a lovely exercise in free speech.” Sammy J is looking forward to bringing Hero Complex to Frankston. “It’s a fun story. You don’t have to like The Phantom at all. It’s for anyone who has ever been obsessed by something. “I’ve been telling the story all over Australia and it features a lot of local references and photos. “It’s going to be quite strange standing at ‘the scene of the crime’ and telling it.” Phantom fans have emerged from the shadows along the way though. “Being a Phantom fan is a lonely experience so it’s been great to see a few people in Phantom T-shirts and skull rings on their hands in the audience.”  Tickets for Sammy J’s Hero Complex show on Friday 23 June, 9.30pm, at Frankston Arts Centre are available at artscentre.frankston.vic.gov.au or by calling 9784 1060.

‘High-risk’ sisters urge genetic cancer check By Cheryl Anne Brodie TWO sisters are trying to increase awareness of the need for genetic testing among members of cancer-prone families. Tyabb nurse Julie Gaspero and her sister Michelle May of Traralgon, say that without the test they would not have known they have up to 80 per cent per cent chance of developing breast or ovarian cancer. The test looks for BRAC1 and BRAC2 genes in both males and females. The sisters were tested at the Peter MacCallum Cancer Centre in Melbourne after discussing their family’s history, specifically cancer, with their parents. The high risk for the women has been linked back to their father and aunt, who were both diagnosed with cancer. The genetic test for the sisters was free because they had a family history of breast cancer. Ms Gaspero said it was a mystery why doctors had not asked about their family’s medical history. The sisters believe it may be an area for improvement into the prevention of disease, especially one as prevalent as cancer and they want to make oth-

Councillors go up the creek GOING up the creek was all part of an inspection tour for Briars ward councillors Rosie Clark and Sam Hearn. The two Mornington Peninsula Shire councillors elected last October were told about the fragile beauty of Balcombe Creek, its estuary and its adjoining bushland during a tour of the reserves with BERG Mt Martha president Graham Hubbard and field officer Liz Barraclough. The third Briars ward representative is the mayor Cr Bev Colomb, who has a long acquaintance with the Balcombe Estuary Reserves Group, Mt Martha. For more than an hour Mr Hubbard and Ms Barraclough briefed Crs Clark and Hearn on the work of the environ-

ment group as they strolled along the estuary boardwalk. Mr Hubbard said the environment group worked closely with the shire and Melbourne Water in maintaining the estuary and reserves which would suffer in the event of a chemical or sewage spill or overdevelopment. To help safeguard against this BERG regularly monitored the health of Balcombe Creek under its waterwatch program. Members also had regular working bees to remove weeds growing in the bushland and to plant new native trees in the reserves, he said. This was all part of a plan to restore the reserves to their original state. “We told councillors Clark and Hearn that each year our members

work more than 4000 hours in volunteer time in on-ground and community awareness to preserve and restore the estuary and reserves,” he said. “We showed them several major projects such as the bird hide, the burn site, the school murals in the campground, the quarry rehabilitation and the jetty seat. “We also discussed the problems of sedimentation and stormwater damage.” Mr Hubbard said the councillors were impressed with the reserves and with the work BERG Mt Martha had put in over the past 20 years. It was the first time Cr Clark had visited the estuary, but Cr Hearn said he had spent time there with his family. Barry Morris

ers aware that the onus was on them to follow up investigation into the risk shown by their family history. “Genetic testing, specifically for the BRCA1 and BRCA2 gene, is highly recommended where a family history of breast and or ovarian cancer is present in first or second degree relatives below the ages of 50,” oncoplastic surgeon Dr Nicole Yap, of The Valley Private Hospital, Mulgrave, said. “It is best to discuss this with the family doctor or a breast specialist and genetic counseller.” Genetic testing was highlighted in 2013 by actor Angelina Jolie when announcing she had undergone a preventative double mastectomy. “If we were not aware of our family history we wouldn’t have been tested, and we wouldn’t know our options,” Ms Gaspero said. After receiving the results of their genetic tests the sisters said they would rather know they have the BRCA1 gene than not. They see that knowledge as power and are now encouraging their brother to be tested.

Plane drama for dance teacher Neil Walker neil@mpnews.com.au AN ACCLAIMED ballet dance teacher from Frankston South caught up in a bomb scare on a plane last month says she will not let the incident stop her travelling. Sandra McKay, who founded the Rosebud Ballet School, got right back on another flight on the day she was a passenger on a Malaysia Airlines plane where a man tried to break into the cockpit and allegedly threatened to blow up the plane. Ms McKay, 74, who was honoured with an OAM in the Queen’s Birthday Honours list this year for services to dance, was among passengers on Malaysia Airlines flight MH128 from Melbourne to Kuala Lumpur forced to turn back on 31 May due to the bomb scare. She was on the way to Kuala Lumpur to be part of a judging panel for a Malaysian dance contest. At first she and many passengers believed the incident was a medical emergency. “I thought someone had suffered a heart attack and they were trying to break the toilet door down but that was them bringing him down,� Ms McKay said last week. “The ‘bomb thing’ that was carried past me – I wondered what kind of medical equipment that might be.� The plane was diverted back to Melbourne Airport where police and fire

services waited to deal with the terror threat. “It was just like a movie. It was unbelievable,� Ms McKay said. “We were way back in the back lots. We could see the police cars coming but they stopped about a quarter of a mile away around us. “They wouldn’t let anyone near the plane because at that stage they didn’t know if it was going to blow up.� She said most of the passengers appeared calm during an hour-and-a-half wait for armed police to board the plane. “What could you do?� Ms McKay said passengers “were held for 11 hours� in the airport terminal and interviewed by authorities. “I realised later that we were all suspects as well. Apart from the fact we had landed and we knew security had been called there wasn’t another announcement about it.� The traumatic situation brought passengers together. “We sort of knew each other [after 11 hours]. I actually made two good friendships out of it. Some Malaysian people.� The 74-year-old, who regularly travels abroad, said she would not let the experience stop her getting on with enjoying overseas trips. Sri Lankan man Manodh Monaragala Marks, 25, has been charged with threatening to destroy, kill or injure people on an aircraft and recklessly threatening to detonate an explosive device. The device was a music player.

‘Dirty’ diner fined Neil Walker neil@mpnews.com.au A BURGER joint in Frankston has been slapped with a $30,000 fine for multiple food handling offences including failing “to maintain the food premises to a standard of cleanliness�. The America-themed diner’s proprietor was fined in Frankston Magistrates’ Court in February for 44 breaches of the Food Act after Frankston Council health inspectors visited Big Dog Diner on five occasions between August and November last year. Council inspectors were “obstructed� from carrying out food safety inspections in August according to the state government’s Food Convictions Register listing the hygiene offences at Big Dog Diner. Offences included a failure “to store food in such a way that it was protected from the likelihood of contamination�, failure “to maintain the food premises to a standard of cleanliness where there was no accumulation of garbage, food waste, dirt, grease or other visible matter�

and a failure “to maintain easily accessible hand washing facilities�. Frankston Council acting CEO Tim Frederico confirmed one of the charges “was in relation to obstruction of council officers when undertaking their duties�. “Where incidents such as this occur, council will subsequently deploy additional officers for any future on-site inspections at the known premises to ensure the safety of our staff,� Mr Frederico said in a statement. “Council officers have inspected the property twice since the court hearing to ensure the business has adhered to all food safety standards and regulations and will continue to do so as per council’s normal procedures. “Currently, the premises meet all relevant food safety rules and regulations.� Mr Frederico said council works with more than 850 food outlets across Frankston to ensure compliance with food safety rules and regulations. There is also a Big Dog Diner restaurant in Bendigo.


Ugly trend shown by family violence data Stephen Taylor steve@mpnews.com.au FAMILY violence figures have been collated and publicly released for the first time as part of a push to bring domestic assaults out from behind closed doors. The Victorian Family Violence Database released by the Crime Statistics Agency shows a rise in the number of cases every year from July 2011 until June 2016. Described by the state government as “lifting the lid on the hidden scourge of family violence”, the database includes figures from Victoria Police, magistrates’ and children’s courts, the departments of Health, Human Services and Justice and Regulation, and Victoria Legal Aid. The figures show family incidents recorded by police in Frankston rose from 1938 in 2011-12 to 2707 incidents in 2015-16. They show the family incident rate per 100,000 people in Frankston rose from 1470 in 2011-12 to 1969 cases in 201516. Victorian Police Minister Lisa Neville said family violence was regarded as the state’s number one law and order issue. She said the database aimed to provide a comprehensive view of the demand for family violence services. Ms Neville said there had been a “significant increase in reported family violence incidents, as well as an increase

in access to support services for victims”. The release abides by a Royal Commission into Family Violence recommendation, calling on the Crime Statistics Agency to “maintain and develop the Victorian Family Violence Database and consider ways to provide additional data and links between information”. “The state budget 2017-18 provided $1.91 billion to implement all of the Royal Commission’s recommendations and reform Victoria’s family violence system to support victim-survivors and hold perpetrators to account,” Ms Neville said. “This will help reform our justice system, establish support and safety hubs for victims and their families, provide after-hours support for women and their children, recruit hundreds more child protection workers, and work to prevent family violence.” Ms Neville said historically, family violence had been “swept under the rug and hidden from view”. “This database is an important step forward to make statistics on family violence publicly available. Only through transparency and public discussion will we create change. “This database means that all the information on family violence – from Victoria Police and the courts – will be in one place.”

Police patrol Motorcyclist dies A MOTORCYCLIST died after colliding with an SUV in Baxter on the weekend. The accident occurred on Fultons Rd, between Golf Links and Baxter-Tooradin roads, 11.10am, Sunday 11 June. A man and woman in the car stopped and assisted at the scene. They were later taken to hospital for observation. Fultons Rd was closed afterwards with diversions put in place. The circumstances surrounding the collision are yet to be determined and the investigation is ongoing. Anyone with information is urged to contact Crime Stoppers 1800 333 000 or visit crimestoppersvic.com.au The man’s death brings the number of lives lost on Victorian roads to 109. This time last year it was 128.

Cafe robbed FRANKSTON detectives are searching for a thief who stole a “large sum of money” from a cafe in Beach St in April. Leading Senior Constable Adam West, of police media, said the man walked into the cafe in a shopping complex about 7am and emptied the safe. He then walked off along Beach St. He is described as Caucasian, 170cm, with a thin build. He was wearing a blue baseball cap, black hoodie, light coloured pants and black runners.

Fight over stolen booze A MAN who grabbed a six-pack of bourbon from the Thirsty Camel outlet in Beach St, Frankston, was tackled by the shop assistant as he ran from the store, 8pm, Monday 6 June. Detective Leading Senior Constable Helen Vanzetta, of Frankston CIU, said the shop assistant grappled with the knife-wielding thief and was “smacked on the left side of his face receiving a fractured cheekbone”. Despite his injuries, the assistant managed to wrest three cans from the thief who then ran off. The offender was described as Caucasian, 20-25, 175-180cm, medium build, brown hair and goatee

beard. He was wearing a blue and black check long-sleeve jacket, hi-vis vest, runners and carrying a backpack. The shop assistant was taken to Frankston Hospital for treatment.

Kayaker overboard A KAYAKER flipped his craft 500 metres off Fishermans Beach, Mornington, and had to swim for it at about 5.30pm on Saturday 3 June. The man, 41, of Healesville, managed to make a 000 call while in the water and then swam ashore where he was met by police. The $1000 kayak spent the night on the bottom but was recovered next day by a fisherman and towed to the beach. The fisherman, of Mornington, called friends who then carried the kayak to Mornington police station. Sergeant Daniel Patten, of Mornington police, was told the fisherman was a “bit worried” when he saw the sunken kayak and wondered if anyone had been reported missing. Police called the kayaker who picked it up next day. He managed to salvage plenty of fishing gear, but not his car keys.

Sports gear theft THIEVES smashed the front glass door at A-Mart Sports, Homemaker Centre, Mornington, and made off with $1000 in sports gear about 12.40am, Wednesday 7 June. Sergeant Daniel Patten, of Mornington police, said CCTV footage showed the man and woman wearing masks and gloves.

Social media on lookout SOCIAL media chatter about a woman walking around Armstrongs Rd, Seaford, knocking on doors led to police investigating a break-in at a cafe, early Sunday 4 June. Police allege the 37-year-old, of Fitzroy, smashed the front window of the Bear and Cub Cafe, 1am, and stole clothing. She was apprehended and charged with burglary, theft and criminal damage and bailed to appear at Frankston Magistrates’ Court at a later date.

Rees works at Red Hill

Rock sitters: Casting their eyes over the Eastern Sister Rock Seawall and Pathway at Sorrento are Cr Hugh Fraser, Charles Cayless, Rae Riley, Cr Bryan Payne, Peter Houghton, Richard Holland and the shire’s building and open space team leader David Hampton.

Seawall, pathway share historic links THE $1.56 million Eastern Sister rock seawall and pathway project at Sorrento will connect Sullivan Bay with Camerons Bight. Almost one third of the cost – $500,000 – is being provided by the developer of a five-lot subdivision at 3080 Point Nepean Rd. The Eastern Sister Headland is at the northern end of Camerons Bight and the southern end of Sullivan Bay. At the top of the cliff is the Collins settlement historic site, which was Victoria’s first official settlement in

1803. It includes graves, asphalt pathways, monuments and lookouts. “The toe of the Eastern Sister limestone cliffs has continued to gradually erode over many decades from the forces of wave action and human disturbance,� the shire’s chief operating officer Alison Leighton said. “Some erosion mitigation works, including rock armouring, have already been built, and these measures need to be extended.� The mayor Cr Bev Colomb said the

shire had 192 kilometres of coastline along Port Phillip and Western Port bays which “continues to hold a strong importance for local residents and visitors alike�. “The project will support our strategy to guide and protect our foreshore’s future management, use and development. This is a great outcome achieved through working with the community. It will be an iconic walk and experience for those visiting Sorrento.�

Cr Bryan Payne said the project would enable public pedestrian access around the historic Eastern Sister Headland and provide protection for the coast. Cr Hugh Fraser said the shire was committed to being a leader in coastal planning. “Projects such as this will contribute to our goal of caring for our foreshore and will be of benefit to our future generations.� Works are expected to be completed by the end of September.

Club with an appetite for helping others RYE Lions Club has donated $2000 to Food for All – the charity which aims to put food on the tables of struggling Mornington Peninsula families. The volunteer non-profit group was formed in 1991 to provide emergency food relief identified by poverty forums run by the former Shire of Flinders. Up to the end of last year, Food for All had packed and distrib-

uted 54,979 food parcels. Over the past 15 years it has packed and distributed 8415 Christmas hampers and also given toys each year to about 600 children from the families receiving hampers. The donation followed the world centenary of Lions Clubs International on Thursday 7 June. The club also bought a large

commercial toaster for Tootgarook Primary School’s breakfast program. It will be presented to the school on Thursday 15 June. Principal Wayne Whitworth said Rye Lions had been “very supportive� of the school and that the toaster would be an improvement on the portable toasters being used now.

Council reveals board’s pay Neil Walker neil@mpnews.com.au FIVE board members of a company set up by Frankston Council to manage the Peninsula Aquatic Recreation Centre are collectively paid $116,149 each year. Frankston mayor Cr Brian Cunial confirmed last week in response to questions from The News that Peninsula Leisure Pty Ltd chair Roseanne Healy receives $33,185 and four directors sitting on the board are paid $20,741 annually. Frankston councillors voted 5-3 at last month’s public council meeting to instruct Peninsula Leisure directors “not to enter into or tender for projects outside their core obligation, that being the management of PARC and the Pines pool”. Peninsula Leisure was established in 2012 to manage PARC and council subsequently handed the company responsibility for managing the Pines Forest Aquatic Centre in Frankston North. “The board of Peninsula Leisure has strategically guided PARC to ensure it has achieved its financial sustainability target two years ahead of schedule,” Cr Cunial said in a statement. “As the primary shareholder of Peninsula Leisure, Frankston Council appointed an expert board of directors with extensive experience and astute strategic intent to establish the best management of our sporting, recreational and leisure municipal facilities for the long-term benefit of our community and to enhance the local experience.” The mayor said councillors had voted to limit Peninsula Leisure’s “in response to assertions made recently that Peninsula Leisure has been in negotiations with a neighbouring municipality over management of leisure centres”. The News reported last month that Peninsula Leisure had been talking to Mornington Peninsula

Shire council last year about possibly taking over management of some shire sports and recreation centres (“City bids to be ‘in the swim’”, The News 15/5/17). Peninsula Leisure CEO Tim Gledhill said the board of directors is scheduled to meet 11 times this year. “Other board meetings will be considered based on the strategic strategic needs of the business,” Mr Gledhill said. The CEO said board meetings minutes are not publicly available “for commercial in confidence reasons”. Cr Cunial said council had pegged Peninsula Leisure board members’ remuneration at “70 pre cent of the councillor allowance, with the chair paid a supplement of 60 per cent of this amount”. The directors’ pay is “indexed against councillor allowances which have been set until November 2020”, the mayor said. Frankston’s mayor of the day sits on the company’s board as a non-voting “observer” during each 12-month mayoral term. The directors of Peninsula Leisure are – chair Roseanne Healy who is also a director on many South Australia company boards; remuneration and reward committee chair Barbara Crook; strategy and marketing committee chair David Shilbury; audit and risk committee chair Simon Allatson and Phillip Johnson who is also chief financial officer of South East Water. The financials for Peninsula Leisure Pty Ltd, with 300,000 shares wholly owned by council according to ASIC records, are included within council’s annual budget. PARC won the statewide Aquatic Recreation Victoria Facility Management Award last year and there are about 850,000 visitors to the sports, swimming and recreation centre each year according to council figures.

Drivers face fines after royal weekend POLICE detected more than 8300 traffic offences and more than 800 crime offences during the four days of Operation Regal over the Queen’s Birthday long weekend. More than 3150 motorists were caught speeding and 418 motorists fined for using their mobile phones, an increase of 23 and 28 per cent respectively on last year. One in every 15 drivers tested furnished a positive result for drugs while 245 drink drivers were caught after more than 147,200 drivers were tested. Road Policing Command Acting Assistant Commissioner Debra Robertson said the number of people found to be speeding as well as using their phones was a risk to the community that

could be easily avoided. “I’m not sure what it will take for motorists to heed the warnings,” Ms Robertson said. “Does it have to be the loss of a loved one for the message to get through?” Two people were killed over the weekend, a 62-year-old male motorcyclist in Baxter and a 25-year-old man off-road after the mini-bike he was riding collided head-on with another bike at Holly Plains State Park. Other infringements issued across the weekend, include: 195 disqualified/suspended drivers; 354 unlicensed drivers; 808 unregistered vehicles; 418 mobile phone offences; 549 disobey signs/signals; 70 vehicle impounds; and, 218 seat belt offences.

Engine failure ends pursuit A 31-year-old woman was caught after her car’s engine blew out during a pursuit in Langwarrin, just after midnight, Friday 2 June. Somerville Highway Patrol members spotted the silver Mitsubishi without number plates allegedly driving at 125kph in an 80kph zone along Frankston-Cranbourne Rd, Langwarrin. The car sped up when police attempted to pull it over on Peninsula Link, reaching speeds of up to 180kph. But the hard running was too much for the hatchback’s engine, which conked out on the side of Frankston-Flinders Rd, Baxter, allowing police to catch up and pull the driver and her three passengers over.

Police searched the car and allegedly found an axe underneath the driver’s seat and a knife in her handbag. The Hampton Park woman was also found to be driving an unregistered car without a licence. She was charged with 17 offences, including speeding, dangerous driving while being pursued by police, conduct endangering life/ serious injury, disqualified driving, using an unregistered motor vehicle, possessing a controlled weapon and refusing to undergo a preliminary oral fluid test. Her blown-out Mitsubishi was impounded for 30 days at a cost of $960.

Morning Star Estate sold to Chinese buyer THE 63-hectare Morning Star Estate in Mt Eliza has been bought by a Chinese investor for $36.2 million. The Zhongou Capital Corporation outbid five other shortlisted groups to buy the Sunnyside Rd property. The 1867 Tudor-Gothic mansion comes with a restaurant, vineyard, cellar door sales, wedding, function and conference facilities and boutique 20-room hotel. Selling agents CBRE Melbourne offered the estate through an expressions-of-interest campaign in the $30 million-plus range. The property was on the market for just the second time in 30 years with price expectations only two years ago in the low $14 million range.

Bianca Butterworth, of CBRE, said Peninsula Link was having a positive impact on property sales by “efficiently connecting the peninsula with the city”. Sunnyside was built by Francis Albert Gillett, a Londoner who arrived in the colony in the 1860s and played a prominent role in the early life of the district. Most recent owner Judy Barrett renovated the dilapidated buildings and cultivated 75,000 rose bushes – one of the largest collections in Victoria. She also planted a 12-hectare vineyard of pinot, chardonnay and cabernet grapes; orchard; olive grove and grazing pastures. The sale includes a redevelopment permit for a 72-room hotel.

Charity golf hits 30 KAYE Hafey, president of the Sorrento/Portsea/ Rye Red Cross Unit cuts the calk to mark the unit’s 30th annual charity golf day at Portsea Golf Club. An auction and the sale of cookies, slices, cakes and jams made by members of the unit’s committee raised $5000. The cake was cooked in the golf club’s kitchen. The Red Cross unit next meets at 1.30pm on 13 July at the Sorrento Community Centre, Sorrento. Details: 0419 101 397.

Singing for charity THE Flinders Singers Charity Concert being held by Frankston Peninsula Carers will be held at 2pm in Balnarring Hall on Sunday 25 June. The concert will include choral singing by the Semiquavers and Woodleigh students. The $15 entry (children and carers free) includes afternoon tea. Proceeds will go to Frankston Peninsula Carers for Housing for Adults with Intellectual Disability. Details: 0438 213 108 or 5983 2620.

Wellness lunch THE annual Women of Rye Charity Lunch at the Rye RSL last month raised $8000 for the Rosebud Secondary College’s wellness pavilion. The centre will focus on services that support and empower young people and their families in a holistic way. A grant application is being reviewed by the Education Department. Once approved, building is hoped to start next year. The college’s assistant principal Geoff Seletto spoke about the project at the lunch. Psychiatrist and media commentator Steve Ellen spoke of the key issues faced by young people and the need for well-targeted support. Afterwards, the 220 attendees were entertained by a band formed for the event called Mish and the Ahhh Soul Brothers. Their 11-year-old singer bashed out Highway to Hell like Bon Scott, said scribe Julia Kaylock. To contribute to the pavilion contact Rosebud Secondary College, 5986 8595, or rosebud.sc@ edumail.vic.gov.au

Painting shows purpose on display AN artwork painted by Aboriginal students has taken pride of place at Central Bayside Community Health Service’s Parkdale premises. The artwork, reflecting Aboriginal culture across Melbourne and its surrounds, was commissioned by CBCHS and painted by Patterson River Secondary College and Parkdale Secondary students. The art was officially unveiled on 1 June during National Reconciliation Week. “We wanted a piece of art to display at our

Parkdale site that has meaning to the local Aboriginal community and provides a more culturally welcoming environment to our services,” CBCHS acting CEO George Robinson said. “This initiative is part of a Reconciliation Action Plan CBCHS is developing. Through the plan, we will continue to implement projects that build respectful relationships and create opportunities for Aboriginal people and help ‘close the gap’ to achieve health equality.

“Launching the artwork during National Reconciliation Week gives us the chance to reflect on our shared histories and the contributions and achievements of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people.” CBCHS offers a range of health, wellbeing and social support services including GPs and specialist medical services, dental and allied health, nursing and counselling services as well as aged care and disability programs.

New planning rules ignore peninsula’s rights Our association is in complete agreement with the mayor Cr Bev Colomb and fully supports Mornington Peninsula Shire Council in bringing these urgent concerns to the attention of Planning Minister Richard Wynne (“Anger over new planning rules” The News 6/6/17). Unfortunately the state government in its latest amendments to Victoria’s planning provisions has included the peninsula in its interpretation of metropolitan Melbourne. This strips the peninsula of its special character and uniqueness and, more importantly, any recourse of appeal if an unsuitable proposal fits into these new rules. These amendments have been gazetted without consideration to the environmental and social impacts, or the lack of infrastructure and public transport on the peninsula. They erode council’s rights to debate and object to contentious planning developments, and therefore our rights as residents and ratepayers. These new planning rules will destroy this beautiful place that we call home. Doris Campbell, president, Mornington Peninsula Ratepayers and Residents Association, Rosebud

Height control John Cain’s suggestion that we make the Mornington Peninsula’s parliamentary seats marginal is a good idea, but the present state government doesn’t seem to agree (“Marginal pays off” Letters 23/5/17). Why else would its planning minister want to change the peninsula into yet more suburbia? The report on the C 206 amendment consultation in the 23 May Mornington Peninsula Shire Council agenda was baffling. Despite every submission, apart from those from greedy developers, opposing the idea of buildings being higher than two storeys, the report stated that the amendment was generally supported. The approval of the amendment which will allow these higher buildings in the Rosebud and Hastings activity centres was bad enough but now, because of the state government planning changes, these multi-level buildings could pop up next to any house in a developed area on the peninsula, without any notice or chance for neighbours to lodge objections. Thank goodness Cr David Gill is doing something about it. Ray Gibb, Rosebud

Change beach rules I felt very sad and somewhat angry when I read Ron Moore’s letter indicating the change to beach off-leash rules at McCrae (“Change offleash rules in the off season” Letters 30/5/17). Who is it makes these rules? Whoever is behind it has no understanding of the tremendous benefits that pet ownership contributes to the welfare of the people in our community. The decision is heartless. McCrae beach was a place where I felt I could very safely allow my little dog to exercise offlead. It was his favourite place, and mine. It made him very happy. Owners are friendly and responsible, pets well behaved and I never heard any other beachgoer complain. In fact, it is quite a social hub where owners and dogs meet and probably the most pleasant place on the Mornington Peninsula for lovers of beautiful animals like [Ron’s dog] Gloria. Dog owners pay their rates - why shouldn’t they have just a small portion of the beach where they and their dogs can enjoy recreation? It is dark by 5pm and as an older woman alone, would you expect me to go walking on the beach at that time? Please just leave things as they were. Connie Gilchrist, Rosebud

Inclusive dog walkers John Cain, thank you for your most surprising missive (“Not dogs of war” Letters 6/6/17) about Ron Moore’s words (“Change off-leash rule in the off season” Letters 30/5/17). In these divisive times I don’t believe we need more “us and them” attacks, especially unwarranted and ill-informed ones.

PAGE 16

Western Port News 13 June 2017

The dog-walking community of McCrae beach are a friendly, inclusive lot, who tend to pick up not only their dogs’ poo but other folks’ rubbish, in order to maintain the cleanliness of the beach we all treasure. We would love you to join us for a pleasant beach walk, and to enjoy with us the wagging tails of our various canine companions, or at least the fresh air. Our pooches, despite your unfounded accusations, are generally more harmonious in their interactions than much of humankind. Hope to see you there. Paula Polson, Dromana

No responsibility Why does the Mornington Peninsula Shire use a seashell as its logo? It would appear our beaches are not part of its responsibility. A few weeks ago I contacted the council to ask why all the rubbish bins on the Camerons Bight foreshore disappeared once the summer campers left and why were there only two small doggiepoo collection points along 600 metres of beach — each chock a block with poo bags (and other waste), with others hanging from the pole and scattered on the beach surrounding it. Council’s answer was simple — it’s not its responsibility but that of a local foreshore committee. So I contacted the foreshore committee, a band of community minded beach loving volunteers who are unable to do much because they don’t get any funding. I emailed my concerns to all the shire councillors (except the mayor whose mailbox was full) and my concerns were passed on to the relevant officer. He thanked me for my concerns but informed me it’s not council’s responsibility but that of a local foreshore committee. Fred Wild, Rye

Course of discontent I believe the ward councillors of Mornington and the local state MP are wrongly allowing Melbourne Racing Club to kill off the Mornington Racing Club. This racecourse is on crown land and should be used for the purpose of a racecourse, or perhaps for low income housing, if the present lessees fail to make better use of the area. The past year has seen race meetings reduced from around 25 a year to 16; Mornington Cup put to a Saturday for the city folk; and the members car park being regularly used as an entertainment centre. If this is what it is going to be used for, I suggest put [the racecourse] out to public tender. Racing at Pakenham, Ballarat, Geelong seems very regular. If the Melbourne Racing Club will not support Mornington give us back our club. Scott Crowe, Mornington

Timely prosecution The previous owners of land recently sold at Merricks North had, over the past 26 years, regenerated three acres of farm land into wetland and bush habitat for which the property was registered as Land for Wildlife. From 1997 a second dam was constructed where there is a natural water soakage and also three ephemeral ponds which in turn fed into the main large dam, which was already constructed but modified into a more natural looking large pond. Experts in native revegetation were consulted and the quite extensive replanting carried out, resulting in a gradual increase of native animals and birds such as Japanese snipe coming each year to rest while on their long migratory journey. Sugar gliders were spotted in a couple of the existing old trees, which were now surrounded by other native vegetation giving them more security. However, in May last year people in the area were shocked to see bulldozers and chainsaws at work removing all this habitat, and had not seen a council permit application board. Mornington Peninsula Shire was notified of these activities and action was taken. The new owner pleaded guilty and was fined plus court costs.

Setting sail for morning tea PASSENGERS aboard the Sorrento-Queenscliff ferry helped raise more than $7000 by joining Cancer Council Victoria’s Biggest Morning Tea. While the 85 passengers ate and drank wine they were entertained by the host, comedian Andrew Isles and musician Alister Turrill. “We are really excited about the ferry as an

amazing venue and to match these views with a quality food and wine offering is just fantastic,” Searoad Ferries food and beverage manager Allan Benfield said. He said the money was mostly raised through half of the ticket price for the morning tea as well as an onboard auction.

Council hopes this will act as a deterrent to other people coming from the city to the peninsula, thinking they can go ahead and destroy bushland and wildlife habitat. Georgie Gibbs, Balnarring

More care needed

Walking lessons On Tuesday I walked with Craig Thomson on the great Mornington Peninsula bush walk and wildlife corridor. We walked from Baxter to The Briars, Mt Martha. The walk was a real eye opener for me because we who live on the peninsula don’t really realise how much potential exists for the possibility of creating a fantastic north-south tourist and wildlife corridor across the peninsula. That is why it is so sad when our leaders are prepared to sell off some of these extremely valuable stretches of public land to developers. The peninsula tourist organisations should be lobbying our state and federal governments to make this iconic walk a reality. Not only for the preservation of our local flora and fauna, but also for economic reasons , because increased tourism would also bring increased employment and profits to the peninsula. I would like to thank Mr Thomson for raising this possibility with me and letting me take part in walking one of the sections of this great walk. I hope state and local governments are taking notice of his suggestions and support the development of this possibly great initiative. A little money spent on the environmental improvement of this trail would be a great start to get this off the ground. Mr Thomson planned to walk all the way to Gunnamatta over the rest of the week to raise awareness of these valuable environmental areas on our peninsula. Rupert Steiner, Balnarring Beach

Leader contender Sincere apologies to Michael G Free, who says I have no opinions (“Court of Free Speech” Letters 6/6/17). Perhaps I’m still in recovery mode after those five long months of national service training preparing to defend my country in 1955. Indeed, I have opinions Michael, particularly on word usage. “That” is almost always an unnecessary word, in fact ugly. Check your letter, also John Cain’s and Brian A Mitchelson’s, all using “this” useless word. My brain is a tad battered right now. The federal government gave $200,000 for a safer Rye via CCTV cameras including a picture featuring the great [Flinders MP] Greg Hunt, middle obviously, Hugh Fraser as always close at hand, darling mayor Bev [Colomb] and nine others, who were apparently “community leaders” (“Cameras focused for a safer Rye” The News 6/6/17). Why not me? Cliff Ellen, Rye

Unfortunately, the latest incident involving a person with mental illness in my opinion won’t be the last. The sad case of a man threatening to blow up the Malaysian Airlines flight last week is the result of a failed system with the mental health system. The Mental Health Minister needs to broaden the inquiry to all psychiatric hospitals regarding their discharge policy for patients. The organisation I have an involvement with has for more than 10 years been trying to get a copy of the local hospital’s discharge policy for mental health patients. At a recent meeting were told it was a work in progress. Surely it is a duty of care that after treatment and on discharge the carers and relatives need to been informed of the plan for follow-up, and medications, ensuring the person has appropriate care and support. Too often mental health patients have been discharged late at night sometimes out on the street with no accommodation or support with tragic consequences! This must stop now. I recently had surgery and on discharge a plan for my recovery was made available. So why not with mental health patients? This surely is a duty of care? The response to date is nobody is available to do the plan, doctors too busy, the excuses go on. Family and carers need to be involved with the ongoing care of their loved ones. Why is mental health the poor relation in the health system? Australia can and must do better for our people suffering from mental health illnesses, otherwise we will see more cases like this recent incident, which may not have a good conclusion. Denise Hassett, Mt Martha

National licence I think it is about time for Australia to have a national driver’s licence instead of the current system of state by state licences which I think are absurd. Australia needs to come to the 21st century and nationalise the drivers licence for all Australians for cars, trucks and motorcycles. To be expected to change the licence because you have moved interstate or living there temporarily or moving back home is ridiculous. When it is national the states will pick up the revenue when people buy or renew their licence in whichever state they are currently living in so the states will not lose tax revenue. We could have a nation without borders to compliment the transient population, but without the political nonsense. Release the shackles of bureaucracy and normalise the licencing system for Australia Patrick Geeves, Somerville

100 YEARS AGO THIS WEEK...

Miss Scarborough recovering after operation Compiled by Cameron McCullough THE friends of Miss W Scarborough will be pleased to know that she is improving after her second operation which she underwent on Wednesday at St Vincent’s Hospital. *** RUMOR has it that the Peninsula Motor Company Proprietary Limited is about to establish a branch at Sorrento. *** MR. A. DOWNWARD, M.L.A., in a communication to Mr. Dalman, secretary of the Frankston Free Library informs him that £20 has been allotted by the Chief Secretary to the institute for the purchase of books, papers, etc. *** IN the last casualty list issued, the following names appear :– C. C. Barber, Somerville, P. O. Nilsson, Moorooduc, wounded, J. M’Lear, Dromana, seriously ill, A. R. Bartram, Frankston, died of wounds, J. R. Brent, Dromana, missing. *** MORNINGTON has started a bowling club, which promises to claim the interest of many local residents, as well as please and amuse visitors. Should not a fast growing town like Frankston take a leaf out of its neighbor’s book. *** THE euchre party and dance conducted by the “Wattle” Club will be made more interesting than usual, on the next occasion, Thursday, June, 21st, as there are two special prizes donated by Mr Jacobs and Mr Dalman, for the winners of that evening’s

tournament. This will not in any way interfere with the continuous tournament counts, as the number of points scored by every player will be recorded and carried on to the final scores. *** ZEPHERON, still the holder of the time record for the Grand National Steeplechase, after many months of spelling, was a starter in the Hopetown Steeplechase (says the Herald) at the last Flemington meeting. Zepheron broke down about six furlongs from home, and was pulled up, and painfully limped back to the enclosure. It is considered that the gelding will not be persevered with further, but probably will be used in Frankstonby-the-Sea as a buggy horse. *** A CORRESPONDENT writes:– It appears certain that there will be a contest for the Council seats locally at the next election. Possibly three candidates will solicit the votes of the Frankston ratepayers. A well known township man is cited as a starter. A number of the Mornington Road ratepayers. who possess the maximum number of votes, are urging a well known business man to contest the seat. The Island ratepayers, which now are legion, speak of running a well known Frankston resident as a competitor. At the forthcoming election a heavy vote is predicted for many Frankston property owners who are not residents

and live a distance from Frankston are already being organised to record their votes at the anticipated Shire Council election. *** REV E. TONKIN will conduct both services at the Frankston Methodist Church on Sunday next. In the morning there will be a special “Responsive Service” prepared by the Conference Sunday School Department. The children of the Sunday School and their parents are specially invited to attend and participate. *** THE numerous friends of the Chief Justice (Sir John Madden) will be pleased to hear that on Tuesday his medical attendant, Dr Stawell, reported a decided improvement in his condition. He is still confined to his bed, and will not be able to do business for some time. Sir Thomas a’Beckett, who has completely recovered from his late serious illness, sat on the Full Court bench on Wednesday. *** MR Henry F. Swords, a member of the firm of Swords Brothers, proprietors, of Dandenong “Advertiser” and uncle of Mrs J. Reynolds, of Frankston, died at Dandenong on Wednesday evening. Mr Swords was born in Melbourne on 27th September, 1846 In 1874 he founded the Dandenong “Advertiser’’ with his brother, Mr F. W. Swords. He was also chairman of directors of the Victorian Country Press Association. ***

A PUBLIC meeting is called for Wednesday evening next at the Frankston Mechanics’ Hall for the purpose of arranging for deputation to proceed to Melbourne on the day following to interview the Minister of Public Works re cleaning out Kananook Creek. As the matter is one of vital importance to the residents it is hoped there will be a good attendance. *** AN old and respected resident, in the person of Mr Twining, passed peacefully away at his home “Hillcrest” Frankston, on Thursday evening at about 10.30 o’clock. Some months ago Mr Twining was stricken with a sudden illness, and although recovering sufficiently to leave his room, he was never really well, and for the past fortnight has been confined to his bed, where he has been attended by his devoted wife and daughters, for whom the deepest sympathy is felt. The only son, Sig. C. Twining, is in France, fighting for King and Country. Mr Twining was sixty nine years old at the time of his death. *** Echoes from the Front. Where are the boys we know? The following interesting letter, received from Private Wilcox, who could not stand the strain of the winter in the trenches and spent some time in the laundry, where a soldier’s clothes are washed and are made ready for further use:– There are vast laundries here, so that the soldiers, when they come out of the trenches, get a change and a bath, two shirts, pair of underpants, 1

pair socks, and 1 towel. The clothes they leave off are put into enclosed boilers with disinfectants and about ten pounds of steam for 30 minutes, and are then sent to various laundries in large motor vans. They are then placed into revolving washing machines in a strong solution of washing soda for 30 minutes, then into large stone vats in clean water where they are rinsed and put into wringers or copper pans which revolve very rapidly It would surprise you the amount of water that comes out of the clothes. They are then taken into the drying room temperature, about 80 degrees where they take about 12 hours to dry (where I am now.) It seemed like going to heaven going in there the first time as had not been warm for, well, say half an hour. This place turns out 60,000 articles every week, counting a pair of socks one article, and will probably turn out about 100,000 in the course of a couple of weeks. The hours are 7 till 12 noon, 9 till 12 night time; day off once a week – very easy hours for the work. There are twelve boilers and a great lot of machinery, which is driven by an engine the size of which I do not know, electricity etc, so have plenty of clean clothing and a hot bath when wanted. The river which supplies the water runs past the building and is mentioned daily in your papers. I am extremely fortunate in being here. *** From the pages of the Mornington Standard, 16 June 1917

Confessions of a Wannabe Pinball Wizard By Stuart McCullough IT was always embarrassing. We’d be out in public and, as usual, my brothers, sisters and I would be on our best behaviour. In many respects, the inevitable consequence of dressing in matching clothes is that you exude discipline. But when a stranger remarked at how well behaved we were, our parents never allowed the compliment to stand unchallenged. No sooner had the stranger finished saying how great we were, our parents were always ready with a retort to the effect of, ‘you should see them at home!’ Thus, the fragile illusion of civility was shattered. I’m not sure why our parents felt so strongly. You would have thought they’d grab hold of any opportunity to bask in the reflected glory. Frankly, why they weren’t falling over themselves to agree with these kind-hearted strangers is beyond me. When I think about it now, it means that all our good work was for naught. If the end result of good conduct is public shaming, then there’s little point. In retrospect, I wish that I’d misbehaved more outlandishly than I did. It’s odd when you think about it – that your own parents should be so quick to set the record straight is disturbing. I strongly suspect it undermined my confidence. Not that they drew the line with us - they also had very strong views about other people’s children. Often, their disapproval was silent and yet spoke volumes. This mute judgment would then evolve; first into a parental benchmarking exercise in which we were compared

PAGE 34

with less well-behaved children before then descending into fully-fledged future casting in which they predicted what would become of other, more undisciplined kids. In extreme circumstances, they’d even invoke the name of poorly behaved classmates as a kind of warning. ‘You don’t want to end up like [insert name here] do you?’ It was a tough question to answer. On the one hand, there would inevitably be something about the other kid that I kind of envied – maybe they were allowed to play pinball machines (we were strictly forbidden) or had a pair of ‘Romes’ (our sneakers tended towards being functional but unfashionable). However, even I could tell that to answer ‘yes’ would likely trigger a range of unfavourable consequences, leaving me no closer to my childhood dream of being a professional pinball player. The world is full of shops but has very few parlours. Local ‘Pinnie Par-

Western Port News 13 June 2017

lours’ were like beacons for listless local youths, whose dragsters and BMX bikes were piled up on the footpath as the owners churned through twentycent pieces. Our parents saw it as their solemn duty to protect us from their nefarious influence. I’m not sure what they were afraid of. Even driving past, we were required to avert our eyes, lest we should be corrupted by what we saw which, at forty kilometers an hour, was unlikely to be much. Secretly, I envied those whose parents allowed them to enter these palaces of pleasure. The advent of the video game changed everything and nothing. Pinball Parlours evolved into Video Arcades but remained off-limits. Even when home computers brought these games into the family home, our parents remained wary. Doubtless, they viewed the Atari as a ‘gateway’ to arcades that would gobble our pocket money as surely as Pac Man would

pac-dots. It goes without saying that I never became a professional pinball player. Nor did I ever own my own pair of ‘Romes’. Instead, the bulk of my teenage years involved casual footwear that favoured Velcro and kick-to-kick in the backyard. I do, however, have a lifetime’s supply of twenty-cent pieces. But now that I’m an adult, there’s no reason why I can’t rectify the shortcomings of my past and be exactly who I always wanted to be. But before I do, I should check and see whether my parents were right. In this world of social media, it’d be easy to follow up on those children nominated by my parents as being ‘no hopers’. I’ll bet that, without exception, they all turned out just fine. It seems that ‘skin to metal’ contact with a pinball machine does not ruin your life after all. Ironically, having forbidden us to ‘waste’ twenty cents on playing pinball when we were growing up, my

father now owns his very own pinball machine. It occupies the former bedroom of one of my sisters, and it’s common for a metamorphosis to occur during family events in which they become pinball tournaments between various cousins. That’s it: I’m getting a wheelbarrow and filling it with every twentycent piece I’ve managed to hang on to. Then, I’m going to wheel that thing down to the local Pinball Parlour / Video Arcade / Den of Iniquity and start shoveling those suckers into a machine, playing game after game, until I become a dead-set champion. Kids will gather round, their mouths open in awe. One child, so impressed with my pinball skills, will go so far as to describe me as ‘awesome’. At which point, one of my parents will appear from behind a vending machine and add, ‘but you should see him at home!’ stuart@stuartmccullough.com

Bonbeach on the rise

PENINSULA LEAGUE

By Toe Punt BONBEACH is a better football team than it was in 2016, are more disciplined and have added maturity, according to Chelsea coach Brett Dunne. In the stand-alone Peninsula Division game on Saturday, traditional rivals Chelsea and Bonbeach went toe to toe at Chelsea Reserve. Just six points separated the sides at quarter time and the margin was just 19 points at the long interval, however, the Sharks booted 10 goals to five after the break to win 19.9 (123) to 11.6 (72). Trent Dennis-Lane booted nine goals in the match, including four in the first quarter. Dunne said the Sharks were “really good”. “Jackson Casey and Macca (Shane McDonald) got off the leash in the middle in the second half and really set the scene,” Dunne said. “Dennis Lane kicked four out of their

first five. He was certainly a handful. Four players had a go at him but he was a class above. He’s a really good leadup player and they hit him. You can’t give him too many chances because he kicks straight. I was certainly happier when they pushed him higher up the ground,” he said. Dunne said he was happy with his team’s performance in the first half. “Our guys played a really good first half again. We can take on the opposition’s game style early but we can’t impress our own style enough,” Dunne said. “Bonbeach’s run and receive handball is one of the best and highest in the competition. We took it away from them in the first half but they got it going in the second half. “They were really disciplined. They’ve got some maturity in the group now and are right up there with the best in the competition,” Dunne said. Bonbeach coach Steve Hughes said

he was happy to play the game on Saturday and have a bye ‘in the bank’ later in the year. “We were pretty keen to make that happen. I think a rest later is more valuable,” Hughes said. “We were happy to come away with the four points. “We lost Justin Bennett a couple of weeks ago, we went in without Mark Tyrrell and Gary Carpenter got concussed before half time. Our rotations were down. “However, we were able to throw Lachy Gill and Beau Bailey in the middle and with Greg Vassallo, we were able to maintain our advantage in there.” Hughes said Chelsea had improved greatly from the team it played six weeks ago. “You can’t compare them from where they were then. They controlled the game against Frankston YCW early and did again on Saturday,” Hughes said.

Sorrento Sharks are the team to beat NEPEAN LEAGUE By Toe Punt SORRENTO is one of the best teams that has taken to the footy field in a number of years, according to Rye coach Josh Moore. Moore and his Demon charges were handed their second 100-plus point hiding at the hands of the Sharks on Saturday, prompting Moore to make the call. He said while he rated Frankston Bombers “highly”, he thought that his old team was the side to beat. “We’ve played all of the sides in the top five and Sorrento is the one to beat with Frankston the only team we’ve played that I think can challenge them right now,” Moore said. “We’ve made some steady improvement over the past month since we last played Sorrento but they were again able to beat us convincingly. “If they did have one weakness, it would be in the ruck, however, they excel everywhere else. “With most teams when they are go-

ing as well as Sorrento, you can challenge the defensive side of their game, however, they are so well structured all over the ground,” Moore said. Sorrento booted 26.18 (174) to 9.7 (61), which included eight goals in the third quarter and nine majors in the last. Chris Dawes booted 10 goals in a masterclass performance. Moore said Dawes was “exceptional”. “Dawes is just a wonderful athlete. It didn’t matter who we played on him, he just monstered them. He’s a specimen – he’s quick, strong, athletic – he’s got it all. There’s no one in the competition who will be able to stop him,” Moore said. Rye went into the game with 13 players under the age of 21, including six Under 19s and an Under 17. “There’s no doubt we went in a little too inexperienced for Sorrento but that’s where we are at as a footy club right now,” Moore said. “It’s these kids who have helped us win games of footy in the past month. “Playing sides like Sorrento is a

wonderful experience for them. Take 17-year-old Joel Wills for instance, he’s played on the likes of Colin McVeigh and Keegan Downie. On Saturday he played on Nick Corp. Corp said to me after the game, ‘you’ve got a beauty there’ and I replied, he’s 17, which astounded him. “It’s an exciting time for our club.” Sorrento play Frankston and Hastings in successive weeks after playing Devon Meadows this week. It’s only then will we get a real read on the Sharks. On Sunday, Dromana made it four wins on the trot with an emphatic 61 point win over Red Hill. The Tigers’ win moved them into the top five for the first time, pushing out its opponent Red Hill. The Hillmen have now lost four of its past six games and are as low as they have been in years. Red Hill’s only wins in the past six weeks have been against Tyabb and Pearcedale. It has now lost to Somerville and Dromana, teams it is competing against for a spot in the top five.

AFL South East derail footy season By Toe Punt PENINSULA, Nepean and South East Football Netball Clubs (SENFL) seasons are on the brink of being derailed as a result of the senior football competition review handed down by AFL South East last week. The review has taken over discussion at football games, at football clubs and via social media and no one is clear what the future holds. And AFL SE isn’t helping. AFL SE General Manager John Anderson has declared that there would be “no comment” coming from the top office until after the recommendations are pushed down. However, the lack of transparency and communication from AFL SE is confusing clubs and more importantly, the communities who support local football. The two options of the review were:

• A full divisional structure initially comprising three divisions with promotion/relegation between each. • A partial divisional structure also comprising three divisions, with a top division then two divisions below based on geography. Since the review was released, club presidents and heavyweights have been meeting behind closed doors in a bid to determine what their options are “when” the league hands down its verdict. While the SENFL are not fully supportive of divisional football, they are looking for a more competitive option than they currently have, where the likes of Cranbourne, Berwick, Beaconsfield and Narre Warren dominate the competition, while Hampton Park and Tooradin are hardly competitive. A former SENFL president told MP News last week that he believed Cranbourne and Berwick had been in

talks with Eastern Football League, while Hampton Park and Tooradin had spoken to Southern Football League. It was also suggested that Pakenham had been in talks with West Gippsland Football League. In Peninsula and Nepean, all 22 clubs are categoric that they do not support divisional football, despite AFL SE claiming otherwise. Sorrento FC had talked about joining AFL Barwon, although that region squashed that idea last week. However, the president did say that AFL SE needs to be ready for a fight should they push divisional football. The majority of Peninsula and Nepean clubs do support promotion-relegation within the two divisions. SENFL Clubs moved away from the MPNFL two years ago because they wanted power and to have a voice, however, once again they believe they have been stripped of their independ-

ence. AFL SE’s plan seems to be to divide and conquer. They haven’t brought together all 31 clubs, which seems to be the obvious thing to do, they have met only with clubs individually or as a division and in a very recent case, met with SENFL Clubs without the SENFL Board being invited or present. AFL SE seems committed to making clubs accept a proposal it does not support. Here’s a thought. Rather than AFL SE trying to bring together three competitions that clearly don’t support it, how about they look at their own structure? The AFL SE Region is around 60% larger than any other AFL commission in Victoria. Why wouldn’t they look at splitting the region geographically and create an AFL Peninsula Region, bringing in promotion-relegation and looking at options to include other

clubs ‘within’ the region to join. SENFL clubs, or the top ranked clubs, join the Southern Football League, which is having some issues of its own, form the basis of Division One and create AFL Southern region. It’s understood that this very proposal was recommended to the AFL SE commission on a number of occasions in the past, only to be shot down. The reality is that there is no support for division football or the recommendations released in the report. It is not the only option to maintain competitiveness across the divisions. If AFL SE listened, they would have heard them. Clubs are exercising their options to look outside AFL SE and it’s this activity that has consumed Peninsula, Nepean and SENFL football. It’s time AFL SE was transparent, listened, communicated and worked with clubs, not alienated them.

Langy nine points clear, Strikers do it for Clayton SOCCER

By Craig MacKenzie IT’S full steam ahead for league leader Langwarrin which is now nine points clear of its nearest rival and has completed the first half of the State 1 South-East season undefeated. Langy beat Malvern City 3-1 on Saturday at Lawton Park and is expected to maintain its title momentum this weekend against bottom side Mooroolbark. Liam Baxter put Langy ahead in the 2nd minute breaking onto a long throw and neatly finishing past advancing Malvern City keeper Harry Raworth. A Daniel Hilder shot squared the ledger in the 41st minute but three minutes into the second half Alex Metcalfe sent Baxter clear and from the right of the area he hammered the ball past Raworth and inside the far post to make it 2-1. Chris Geils blew a great chance to level in the 60th minute when he shot wide from close range and Langy’s nerves were eased when Baxter’s 78th minute free-kick from the right was headed home by towering midfielder Mat “Yaya” Luak. Mornington was active in the transfer market last week but there was no immediate gain as its shock 2-0 loss to relegation candidate Morwell Pegasus on Saturday was its fourth home defeat this season. The Seagulls signed forward Marinos Panayi from Eastern Lions, attacking midfielder Keegan Ziada from Dandenong City and attacking midfielder Sam Orritt from NZ outfit Coastal Spirit. Orritt, 24, was a junior at English club Rotherham United, had a short spell at Lincoln United then played college football in the US for Limestone College in South Carolina before signing for Scottish club Cowdenbeath in 2015. Orritt flew back to NZ after being officially unveiled as a Mornington player last Thursday and will return to Melbourne this week. He’ll join a side licking its wounds after failing to come back against 10man Pegasus who had Samuel Gatpan red carded in the 54th minute. John Kuol had played a pivotal role in Morwell’s FFA Cup win over Mornington and he returned to the scene of the crime to take advantage of Scott Millar playing in an unfamiliar right-back role. Kuol’s firm low strike in the 34th minute beat Mornington keeper Kris McEvoy for the opener and three minutes later Jack Truelove missed with an attempt to clear Kuol’s cross from the left and the incoming

Hamied Zamani hammered home a low shot past McEvoy and inside the far post to make it 2-0. Mornington never recovered in what was its most disappointing display of the season. Peninsula Strikers finished all over Mazenod United to record a 3-1 home win in their State 2 South-East fixture last weekend. A Chris McKenna slip of Gerrardlike proportion set up Mazenod’s Adam Neou in the 35th minute and he neatly lobbed the ball over the head of stranded Strikers keeper Colin McCormack. Two minutes from half-time Robert D’Angelo, one of three brothers in Mazenod’s starting line-up, shrugged off the attentions of Conor Keeley only for McCormack to spread himself well and smother D’Angelo at close range. McCormack again had to come to Strikers’ aid when Vicente Vasquez broke through in the 53rd minute but the Irish stopper was off his line in a flash to block superbly. Four minutes later Aziz Bayeh broke onto a long clearance and held off a defender before slotting the ball past helpless Mazenod keeper Nicholas Van Hattum to make it 1-1. A momentum shift was evident in the second half and Bayeh gave Strikers the lead in the 75th minute. Tom Hawkins intercepted the ball

on the right and played it into the path of Bayeh who turned his man inside out before thumping a close-range shot past Van Hattum and inside the near post. In the 86th minute central midfielder Sam Scott chipped the ball down the right for Bayeh whose cutback found Scott charging into the area and his low first-time strike settled the issue. Strikers head coach Craig Lewis was unavailable due to illness so assistant Billy Buchanan and reserves coach Graham Watson stepped into the breach. The win was celebrated with gusto and the players dedicated their success to club legend Clayton Lee whose 70th birthday party was held on Saturday night. Frankston Pines defeated North Caulfield 3-1 at Monterey Reserve on Sunday thanks to a Jack Wrobel hattrick aided by some woeful goalkeeping and comical defending. Wrobel opened his account in the 8th minute with a low shot that squirmed underneath North Caulfield keeper Sam Quinn at his near post and three minutes into the second half Wrobel’s toe poke eluded Quinn again at his near post. North Caulfield’s Daniel Sacks had a tap-in in the 60th minute but a dreadful blunder by a North Caulfield defender with Quinn stranded enabled Wrobel to restore the home team’s

two-goal cushion in the 65th minute. Wrobel and substitute Ioasa Saemo missed chances to further embarrass North Caulfield’s defence but the win was welcomed by the home side in its bid to move away from the developing relegation dogfight in State 2 South-East. Kevin “Squizzy” Taylor has been appointed assistant coach at Pines and Sunday was his first matchday in that role. Harry McCartney reports that Seaford United remains anchored to the foot of the State 2 South-East ladder after going down 2-0 at home to Beaumaris last weekend. Declan Byrne opened the scoring in the 7th minute when he charged into the penalty area from the left and calmly slotted the ball past Seaford keeper Anthony Madaferri. In the 25th minute Deni Kulas was given time and space to shoot from just outside the area and Madaferri was beaten for the second time. Beaumaris always looked the better side and although it drew a blank in the second half it maintained control of the contest. Seaford lost key midfielder Paul McGuire to a 50/50 tackle in the second period and he could be sidelined for a few weeks with a knee injury. That will hurt the club’s already depleted midfield stocks with Matty Morris-Thomas struggling to overcome a hamstring injury sustained at training last Thursday night. Skye United ended a poor run of results with an important 2-1 away win against Brandon Park in their State 3 South-East clash on Saturday. Brandon Park went close in the 15th minute when Adrian Chilla’s strike hit the underside of the bar but failed to cross the line. It took until the 26th minute for the first clear-cut chance for Skye as Jacob Scotte-Hatherly sent in an inviting cross from the left and Wumjock Jock slid in at the back post to convert and put the visitors ahead. Skye had barely finished celebrating when Maxim Avram’s back post header drew the hosts level. In the 34th minute a long throw by Johnny Andrinopolous was only partially cleared and Skye captain Mark O’Connor’s left foot volley found the top corner to make it 2-1. The second half was a scrappy affair on a deteriorating pitch and Skye had to grind out the final 10 minutes after O’Connor received a second caution and was sent off. Prior to kick-off Skye announced that Billy Rae had been appointed as assistant coach to Billy Armour. Baxter and Rosebud Heart both lost

as they head towards next weekend’s State 4 South derby shootout at Truemans Road. Baxter went down by the odd goal in nine away to Endeavour United and Heart was humbled 4-0 away to Monash Uni. Baxter was reeling after 30 minutes as goals by Michael Rovinson, Sebastian Goyenechea and Nathan Credlin had the home team well in command. Jake Kidder made it 3-1 in the 37th minute and Mark Pagliarulo scored three minutes into the second half to give Baxter a sniff but a double to Ifelowoa Ogidan in the 62nd and 73rd minutes restored Endeavour’s threegoal cushion. Baxter substitute Matt Owens made it 5-3 in the 77th minute and a Liam Kilner goal in the 83rd minute ensured a frenetic finish but the 5-4 scoreline remained as Baxter suffered its third loss of the league campaign. Heart found itself 1-0 down after six minutes when Seb Barriere broke through and slotted the ball past Heart keeper Sean Skelly. In the 19th minute Miles Rodriguez cut in from the right and hit a welltimed shot that was going wide until Matthew Pearce deflected it into the corner of goal to make it 2-0. Mikey Turner missed a one-on-one with Uni keeper Max Heep in the 30th minute and a Skelly blunder in the 54th minute allowed Alex Certoma to stroll into an open net. A nice sidefoot finish by Luke Cardamone in the 67th minute completed the rout. In State 5 South Somerville Eagles went down 5-2 away to Lyndale United on Saturday. Jarryd Lymer opened the scoring for the Eagles in the 23rd minute but Anthony Rosa levelled in the 35th minute and two penalties in the final four minutes of the half converted by Anthony Fekatz and Greg Nicolopoulos gave the home team a 3-1 lead at the break. Fekatz completed his hat-trick in the second period and Damien Finnegan scored in the 83rd minute for the Eagles.

Womenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s football side continues string of wins By Ben Triandafillou THE MORNINGTON Football Clubâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s womenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s senior side continued their unbeaten start to the season with a 17-point victory over the Eastern Devils on Sunday 4 June. Mornington (7.8.50) added their fifth win to their 2017 tally defeating the Eastern Devils (5.3.33) away at Mulgrave Reserve, Wheelers Hill. Heading into the final quarter the Eastern Devils were trailing by seven points until Mornington gained momentum and pulled away, kicking two goals and four points to finish off the match. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re a great bunch of girls and were able to beat the Eastern Devils in quite a close

game,â&#x20AC;? Mornington Football Club secretary, Allison Dillon said. It has been a perfect start for Morningtonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s second season in the South Eastern Womenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Football league since taking out last yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s premiership in the development league. Currently sitting at the top of the table, the womenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s senior side, coached by Gary Sanford, will meet the also unbeaten Endeavour Hills on Saturday 17 June. Playing home at Alexandra Park, Mornington, the womenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s development side will kick off at 10.00am against Frankston Dolphins before the seniors clash against Endeavour Hills at 12.00noon to determine who sits at the top of the ladder and remain undefeated.

Cyclists join the honours list By Ben Triandafillou CYCLISTS from Aspendale and Mordialloc have received the Order of Australia for their â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;services to cyclingâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; as part of this weekâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Queenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Birthday honours list. Olympic gold medallist Anthony Marchant (below), 79, was rewarded for his achievements in his short but successful career. Becoming interested in cycling around the age of 16, Marchant started out at Chelsea Cycling Club and moved his way through the junior and senior ranks. Then aged 18-years-old Marchant was called up to join the Australian Olympic Cycling team in 1956. Marchant went on to win gold in Melbourne and still recalls the joy of the occasion. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I will never forget the experience,â&#x20AC;? Marchant said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s hard to express, it was quite a thrill.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;We were the underdogs at the time and even though we had some very good times in training, we didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t perform very well in the opening rounds but luckily we started to get going.â&#x20AC;?

Marchant then spent a year away from the sport and took up football at Hastings. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I needed some rest for a bit and nothing major was coming up in cycling,â&#x20AC;? Marchant said. Marchant returned the following year to continue his ventures as a cyclist until he retired in 1961. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I should have probably stayed a bit longer but I decided to continue with my business studies,â&#x20AC;? Marchant said. David Sanders, of Mordialloc, also received an Order of Australia in this weekâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s awards. Sanders has become one of Australiaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s most successful cycling coaches and also had an impressive career riding in Australia, Great Britain and Europe. Sanders worked at the Victorian Institute of Sport for 26 years as the head cycling coach and has worked with some of Australiaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s greatest cyclists such as Cadel Evans, Baden Cooke and Simon Gerrans. Last year, Sanders moved to the Australian World Tour cycling team Orica-Scott and has now taken up a coach/mentor role.

Running group continues to grow legs

Young umpire to oversee AFL championships By Ben Triandafillou MORNINGTON Secondary College student, Mitchell Bell, will join a team of 10 umpires from Victoria to officiate at the under-15 National AFL championships in Perth. Bell was selected by School Sport Victoria and will umpire at the championships from the 22-29 July. Bell, 14, is in his second year of umpiring with the Mornington Peninsula Junior Football League (MPJFL) and Southern Umpires Association and has worked his way up to now umpiring Reserves footy on the weekend. “The Southern Umpires recommended Mitch as they thought he’d be a good candidate and saw what he had been doing,” Mitch’s father, Cameron Bell said. “He enjoys the responsibility of managing games and the challenge of meeting new people

and umpiring with different people.” “He’s very much looking forward to the trip and getting the chance in his second year is massive.” Mitchell is also a keen footballer and plays in the under-14’s South Mornington Tigers side and was also chosen as vice-captain for the MPJFL interleague side that has played over the past week. Mitchell is now looking for sponsors to help cover the costs of travelling to Perth to umpire. “There’s no funding through School Sport Victoria which is why they encourage getting support to fundraise the trip,” Cameron Bell said. If you are interested in supporting or donating to help Mitchell with the trip, contact Ailie Coulter from School Sport Victoria at coulter. ailie.a@edu.vic.gov.au.

By Ben Triandafillou IT HAS come a long way since starting out two years ago but Julian Arnold’s Langwarrin running group has continued to gain support and help ordinary people create extraordinary achievements. Created on the 6 June 2015, the running group had a slow start, adding their first member in the third week of training, but this week will be celebrating their two year anniversary. “It wasn’t a great start, but giving up has never been in my nature so I decided to continue to turn up and go for runs myself until someone showed,” running coach and founder, Julian Arnold, said. “I created the running group as I have always enjoyed racing and the way people get around each other and support them throughout their event.” A sportsman his whole life, Arnold has completed four full ironman’s and has also completed studies to become a qualified personal trainer and running coach. Over the years Arnold’s Langwarrin running group has grown bit by bit and now has more than 230 members on their Facebook page and a regular turnout of about 20 people at their training sessions. “We always have new people floating in as

well as the usual core group but everyone feels pretty welcomed at each session,” Arnold said. “We have a good mix of age groups and abilities, from teenagers through to a 70-yearold man who actually completed his first full marathon at the Melbourne Marathon in October last year.” “We’ve had so many runners from the group achieve personal bests with more than 18 people completing a full marathon for the first time.” “While we do help a lot of people with long distance running, we try to help runners improve over all distances, whether it’s short or long.” The Melbourne Marathon in October has started to become an annual race for the group, competing in the event for the past two years with about 15 runners each time. “The main aim for our group is to help individual runners improve their personal bests, whether that’s beating their quickest time or being able to run over longer distances,” Arnold said. The Langwarrin running group trains every Saturday morning, in and around the Langwarrin area, sometimes training in nearby suburbs such as Frankston and Seaford. The running group is also trialing Thursday morning trainings at the moment and welcomes anyone, with any running ability, to come and join.
