Pink tied

GILLIAN Tong and Sharon Driessen were among the 480 people who took part in the Mother’s Day Classic run and walk at Coolart Historical Homestead and Wetlands on Sunday. They joined a tide of almost 2500 pink-clad participants at events across the peninsula who came together for the annual national event, which honours those impacted by breast cancer and raises funds for vital research into treatment, detection and prevention of the disease through the National Breast Cancer Foundation.

All quiet on car park front By Stephen Taylor CUSTOMERS at the Coles supermarket in Hastings will be pleased to see the restoration of car parking facilities after a dispute lasting several years was recently resolved. Temporary wire barricades will be removed and access to parking bays provided in front of the retailer’s Liquorland outlet. The issue began back in January

1983 when the original developer of the supermarket site – believed to be former Carlton Football Club president George Harris – and the then Shire of Hastings entered into an agreement which gave the developer of the Coles site access to, and use of, the council-owned area off King Street as a car park. The only catch was that he had to develop a sealed car park over the en-

tire Western Port Plaza area. But there was a catch: not all the land in this area was owned by the shire. There was already a small car park – about 410 square metres - at the rear of the Victoria Street Medical Clinic which was being used by its owners. As a result, under the agreement, Mr Harris was required to lease this car park from the owners of the building

ers having use of the whole car park. Fast-forward 25 years to 2008 and the owners of the body corporate controlling the Victoria Street building, with its five small businesses, offered the land to Oaksey at what they deemed a reasonable price. He refused to buy it, probably thinking the land could only ever be used as a car park. Continued on Page 7

for the next 25 years with all the rent payable in advance. It wasn’t much money: only about $2000 all up – and 25 years was a long time not to have to worry about it. The developer shelved any plans he may have had to buy the land outright and signed the lease.

Dog walker cautions others after beloved pets loss

Two injured in head-on smash TWO people were taken to hospital, one in a critical condition, following a head-on collision in Somerville last Wednesday. A 38-year-old Moorooduc man was airlifted by an ambulance helicopter to the The Alfred hospital suffering multiple injuries after the car he was driving on Bungower Rd clipped an oncoming vehicle before veering off the road into trees about 10.30am, pictured above. The other driver, a 69-year-old woman from Merricks North, was taken to Frankston Hospital with minor injuries. Police said the man’s Holden sedan veered onto the wrong side of the road into the path of the woman’s oncoming Hyundai station wagon. A firearm was discovered inside the man’s vehicle following the crash however police said it was a non-functioning ornamental antique flint lock pistol, left.

By Cameron McCullough IT happened in an instant, and has left a Hastings family devastated and searching for answers. One minute Jeanette Bourke was walker her two year old Maltese-minature poodle cross, Charlie, on the Hastings Foreshore, and the next minute she was holding the dying dog in her arms. “I was walking Charlie along the path down near the water in the leashed area when a Staffordshire Terrier cross ran past and down into the mud”, said Mrs Bourke. “I remember feeling a little nervous as Charlie was such a small dog. Just 3.4 kilograms.” “I had quickened my pace when I felt something brush against me. The next thing I knew, Charlie was thrown into the air and was being shaken violently.” “It all happened so fast” People, including the owners of the Stafforshire Terrier cross came to Mrs. Bourke’s aid as she cradled the dying dog in her arms. The owners, apologising profusely, explained the Staffy was only 18 months old, and had never done anything like this before. “I am most grateful to a par-

ticular man, Lee, who came to assist me,” said Mr Bourke. “He stayed with me the whole ordeal, and carried Charlie, who was struggling for life, back to my car. Unfortunately, by the time we got to the car he turned to me and said ‘Charlie’s gone’”. The police attended and the matter has been passed to the ranger to investigate, but the whole experience has left Mrs Bourke traumatised. “I love Hastings. We moved

here four years ago and we love it. I just can’t understand how people let their dogs run around the leashed area off their leashes”. What I want to do is warn others of the danger, and try and stop what has happened to Charlie happening to another dog.” “Everybody used to tell me how cute and adorable Charlie was. He didn’t deserve to die this way.”

Bands booked for fundraiser

Be Neighbourly

Hair’s looking at you, kid By Stephen Taylor A LITTLE girl’s empathy with the plight of those suffering from cancer has prompted her to take a stand - and inspire others. Moorooduc Primary preppie Jessica Bakaniozos, 5, was so touched with a recent Camp Quality fundraiser for cancer treatment that she decided with the support of her parents and her school - to donate her long hair to be made into a wig for children suffering the effects of cancer treatment. The background to the story is that, tragically, one of the school’s pupils is undergoing cancer treatment, which prompted the fundraiser by the stu-

dents’ representative council who ran a Crazy Hair day afterwards. About $300 was raised on the day. Part of the event involved a puppet show, ‘How to support a friend with cancer’, showing how treatment often resulted in patients losing their hair. Wearing a wig could make them feel better. Now, as part of a family day to raise money for the Cancer Council, and hosted by Jessica’s mum, Bianca Bakaniozos, the staff at Dirty Little Secrets hairdressing salon in Hastings will cut off Jessica’s long locks on Friday 30 May. “When she first said she’d like to cut off her hair I thought ‘Maybe she’s not

serious’,’’ Mrs Bakaniozos said. “But when I saw she was I looked around for ladies to make the wig.’’ A city wig maker has been selected. They’ll do the job for free. Once the wig is finished, Jessica can nominate a recipient, or one will be chosen by the Cancer Council. “So far Jessica has raised more than $400 – and it’s going up,” Mrs Bakaniozos said. Moorooduc Primary vice principal Susan Cahill is impressed. “You don’t see that type of empathy or integrity in many children these days, especially as young as Jessica. She’s a wonderful little girl.

BEACHES of Mornington will host a fundraiser on behalf of The Luke Batty Foundation this weekend. Booking agency Peninsula Band Host has booked four music acts to perform at the venue on Sunday 18 May. James & Sarah, Sean Harvey, Pete & Joel and Bonsai will play live and there will be prizes, raffles a silent auction and more. Face painting will also make it a family fundraising day. Entry is free. Funds raised will be donated to help children effected by family violence. The fundraiser will be held at Beaches, 55 Barkly St, Mornington on Sunday 18 May at 1.30-6pm. Call 5975 0966.

“I am intrigued that this cause resonated with the littlest people who were still settling in at school – after all, they had only been here three or four weeks. It’s nice to see that level of empathy.’’ Donations to support Jessica’s worthwhile cause can be made directly through the cancer council website http://vic.cancercouncilfundraising. org.au/jessbakahairdonation or via Jessica, who has registered herself as a charity with the number 763223. Mrs Bakaniozos hoped Jessica’s generous gesture will inspire others to dig deeper and show they care for sufferers of the insidious disease.

Cerberus Dogs tackle pink round THE Cerberus Dogs football team added a new colour to their usual blue and white strip during a game against fellow Southern Football League team Endeavour Hills last Saturday in support of the Breast Cancer Network of Australia. With pink boundary lines, a pink football, pink bootlaces and armbands, the players took the field with enthusiasm. A number of fundraising events held on the day in conjunction with the AFL-endorsed Pink Round helped raised more than $1,000. The Dogs date back to 1921 when HMAS Cerberus was commissioned and are the last Navy team made up solely of uniformed members left in Australia. Many of the Dogs players progress to playing with the RAN Australian Football Association. The Dogs have a long history of participating in service competitions, local community leagues and currently compete in the SFL. Cerberus is the Navy’s largest training establishment, with many tri-service courses offered. With a large trainee population, the club’s sees a constant flow of new faces, with teamwork and camaraderie at the forefront of their successes. Cerberus Dogs vice president Chris Harrison said the annual fundraising event was a favourite among players and officials.

“It was a great game and our team was very excited about supporting the Pink Round,” he said. “They threw themselves into the spirit of it, buying their own pink boot laces and are rapt to be a part of it. Many of our players and officials have been personally touchedby cancer so it

has a personal meaning to most of us.” The opposing players offered fierce competition during the game with both clubs looking to consolidate their positions near the top of SFL Thirds. The Dogs ran out convincing winners, scoring 15.7 (143) to Endeavour Hills’ 4.4 (28).

Record crowds enjoy classic day ALMOST 2500 people donned bright pink to take part in the Mother’s Day Classic across the peninsula on Sunday, including 480 participants at the Somers/Balnarring event who walked and ran around Coolart Historical Homestead and Wetlands, pictured above, and a further 326 who turned out for a parallel event at Flinders. They joined more more than 125,000 Australians who came together at a record 97 locations, including all capital cities and a host of regional centres, for the annual national event to raise money for breast cancer research. The peninsula’s biggest event took place at Dromana, with more than 1800 people participating in a 4 kilometre walk or run. The event aims to raise awareness and honouring those impacted by breast cancer, as well as funding vital research into treatment, detection and prevention through the National Breast Cancer Foundation. Somers/Balnarring organising committee member Michelle Glesson said this year’s event

had been a “fantastist success”, with even the weather playing its part as the drizzle and haze of last week clearing to reveal dazzling blues skies over Western Port on Sunday morning. “It was a perfect day, a fantastic event, truly inspiring for everyone who took part,” she said. “We had everyone from babies to the elderly, people in wheel chairs, and woman at different stages of cancer treatment, including those who have come through the other side. “It was wonderful to see the level of support from the community in helping raise money to battle this terrible disease that affects not just the sufferers themselves but also their families and friends.” Flinders organising committee member Denise Kibby said their turnout was far bigger than expected. “We’re so happy with the response; it was our first ever event this year,” she said. “We’d only expected about 100 people so to get more than 300 is fantastic, especially for such a little village.”

Coles land stand-off resolved Continued from Page 1 Rebuffed, the business-savvy group took possession of what was their land. Their message was: ‘Either buy the land or we are going to build on it’. They then obtained a planning permit from the Mornington Peninsula Shire to build a new shop right up against the front wall of Coles, blocking the Liquorland frontage. They erected wire barricades and forced Coles to take down a front awning and vacate parking bays. Faced with this ‘ultimatum’, the Coles landlord

entered into a contract to buy the land for what is believed to be around $500,000 – a substantial premium on the price he was originally asked to pay a few years ago. Commercial agent Chris Watt, of Century 21 Hastings, handled what he said were ‘’delicate negotiations’’ in the lead up to the purchase of the site. He would neither confirm nor deny the price. “What the body corporate had to do was prove to the Coles landlord that the land had value,’’ he told The News. ‘’The acquisition of the planning permit certainly did that.’’

Budget delivers on buses but rail backlash looms By Chris Brennan THE Mornington Peninsula and Frankston fared well in last week’s state budget, however the knock-on effects of the Napthine government’s public transport overhaul looms as a potential vote loser for the Coalition. There were few surprises for the peninsula in Tuesday’s budget announcement, with details of most big-ticket initiatives having already been revealed. These included $6 million for bus infrastructure improvements works throughout the Mornington Peninsula and $759,000 to upgrade Moorooduc Primary School. Other budget items set to benefit the Western Port include $81 million for the ongoing major expansion of Frankston Hospital, $12 million to improve the state’s boating infrastructure, $10.3 million for local ports maintenance and $3.4 million to upgrade and replace marine pollution equipment. However the biggest talking point to emerge for the region from the budget was the potential impact the Coalition government’s $11 billion Melbourne Rail Link project would have on Frankston line commuters (see story on Page 10). Details of the government’s budget showpiece reveal that, under the plan, Frankston line trains would no longer travel to Richmond or Flinders Street station, with passengers instead forced to change at South Yarra. The Labor Party candidate for Frankston, Helen Constas labelled the plan a “disaster”, claiming it would add an extra 20 minutes travel time each way for Frankston line passengers going to or from the city. But state member for Hastings Neale Burgess said the 2014-15 state budget was “great news for the for Victoria and for our community”. “The state budget delivers a once in-a-gener-

ation investment in infrastructure to create jobs, drive economic growth and boost productivity,” he said. “For families and businesses in the Hasting’s electorate, there are a number of measures to strengthen our local community, including $759,000 to upgrade Moorooduc Primary School. “The budget also builds upon initiatives already announced including construction of the new $16.3 million Somerville police station, Zone 1 + 2 travel for the price of a Zone 1 fare, which will save people commuting to the city daily around $1200 a year, the $81 million expansion of Frankston Hospital’s emergency department, and construction of the new $4 million Somerville Technical College.” Mr Burgess said the latest budget announcements followed the Coalition’s “enormous commitment” to the development of the Port of Hastings in last year’s budget, with the goverrnment providing $110 million for planning and research into the $8 billion port project. “Our community will benefit enormously from development of Hastings as Victoria’s second container port,” Mr Burgess said. “It will bring thousands of jobs, upgraded infrastructure, improved services and most importantly opportunities and prosperity for local families and businesses.” Mornington MP David Morris said the $6 million works package to upgrade bus infrastructure was also a “huge boost” for the peninsula. “Works will include the upgrading of 120 bus stops to be disability compliant, including the installation of tactile and concrete pants, and wherever necessary accessibility features, including foot paths and ramps,” Mr Morris said. The package also includes improvement works including bus lanes, and traffic priority works at major intersections at a number of congestion spots. Construction works are scheduled to be completed by 2016.

Traders will display birds, cages, aviaries, foods, and all kinds of products and bird accessories to view and buy.

Spotlight shines on volunteers

Esso Pipeline Replacement Project Community Information Sessions

Birds of a feather: Mornington Peninsula Avicultural Society’s annual bird sale is in Skye later this month.

THE vital role played by volunteers in the Mornington Peninsula community is in the spotlight light this week as part of National Volunteer Week celebrations. Volunteer groups across the peninsula are highlighting the individual and collective contribution volunteers make to a wide variety of organisations and to the community as a whole during National Volunteer Week, which runs until Sunday 18 May. Participation figures show that around one in every five people on the Mornington Peninsula is actively involved in a variety of formal and informal volunteer roles with organisations such as hospitals, sports clubs, environmental groups, the CFA, coast guard, SES and a host of charities. Mornington Peninsula mayor Cr Antonella Celi said volunteering not only greatly enhanced individual and community connections, but also promoted better health and wellbeing. She said thousands of peninsula residents generously gave their time to support numerous essential community, environmental, sporting and cultural activities on the peninsula. “Volunteers come from all walks of life, and are of all ages,” Cr Celi said. “They all contribute in a powerful way to help local communities become safe, healthy, resilient and socially inclusive. “For example, young volunteers are out there taking care of our natural environment as well as organising youth-focussed recreation and music events, parents are heavily involved in supporting the academic, sporting and recreational interests of their children, and older volunteers are bringing years of experience and specialised skills to a variety of community service, health, welfare and life-long learning programs. “All volunteers should feel very proud of the good work they do and, on behalf of council and the community, I thank them for their invaluable contribution.” The shire promotes a range of volunteering activities for all ages and provides support to the local volunteering sector and to volunteers through Volunteering Mornington Peninsula. Volunteering Mornington Peninsula also promotes local volunteering by providing an online

Bright path: Mornington resident Amelia Travers is one of the thousands of peninsula volunteers whose efforts are being celebrated this week. Amelia recently volunteered as a Campground Host in the Grampians National Park for 20 days. Volunteers play a vital role in helping Parks Victoria protect, maintain and enhance some of the state’s most precious environmental assets. Last year alone, volunteers contributed a record 218,970 hours across 180 Victorian parks and reserves.

Amnesty demands rights answers By Neil Walker AMNESTY International has delivered a petition to Flinders MP Greg Hunt highlighting concern at the federal government’s treatment of asylum seekers. The human rights group has demanded the government respond to its report on “cruel and humiliating” conditions at the Manus Island detention centre detailed by Amnesty International investigators who visited the Papua New Guinea facility late last year. Federal environment minister Mr Hunt agreed to meet Amnesty International peninsula branch members Kevin Bain, Barbara McKenzie and Anne Blight last Friday to discuss their views about offshore processing of refugees. The trio and other volunteers gathered more than 500 signatures at Mornington market for petitions to be handed to Mr Hunt and fellow Liberal MP and member for Dunkley Bruce Billson (‘Petition brings asylum seekers home to MPs’, The News, 15/4/14). Mr Bain said a lot of people are angry and disappointed at successive governments’ policy of “demonising” asylum seekers. “We wanted to tell Mr Hunt that many people in Australia are crying

out for leaders with long-term vision rather than those who use asylum seekers as a target for short-term political gain.” He told The News Mr Hunt had questioned whether Amnesty Interna-

tional had pursued the previous Labor administration as vigorously on the contentious issue as the current Liberal and National Party coalition government. “Amnesty International is a non-

political organisation and has tried to hold successive governments to account for their disgraceful treatment of those fleeing prosecution in other countries,” Mr Bain said. Mr Hunt told Mr Bain he had read the Amnesty report about conditions at Manus Island and “had promised to pass the petition on to immigration minister Scott Morrison”. Mr Bain said Mr Hunt had committed to seek an official government response to the petition. Mr Hunt released a statement to The News after the meeting stating “constructive feedback on how offshore processing could be improved was welcomed by the government”. He said the previous Labor government’s “failure on our borders” had led to more than 50,000 people arriving on more than 800 boats, with more than 1100 people known to have drowned at sea. “Offshore processing in Nauru and Papua New Guinea is one part of a range of measures being used to stop the people smuggling trade and prevent further illegal maritime arrivals to Australia,” he said. Mr Hunt said the government had made a number of improvements at the Manus Island and Nauru facilities since winning government in September last year.

“All people transferred and accommodated at an offshore processing centre are treated with dignity and respect and in accordance with human rights standards,” Mr Hunt said. In February this year several asylum seekers detained at Manus Island were injured during unrest inside the confines of the detention centre. A 23-year-old Iranian man, Reza Berati, was murdered during riots at the centre and a PNG police investigation has failed to identify the culprits amid allegations PNG guards hired by contractor Transfield on behalf of the Australian government were involved. Mr Hunt said: “The government has contracted appropriately trained and experienced service providers to ensure transferees’ needs are adequately met.” Transfield is paid more than $61 million per month by the Australian government to manage the Manus Island detention centre, and replaced previous contractor G4S in February after the riots. Refugees at Manus Island have accused G4S security guards of attacking them with rocks and iron bars during the February night of violence at the detention centre.

Frankston out of loop in new rail plan By Neil Walker FRANKSTON line commuters face frustrating delays reaching Flinders St and Richmond stations if the state government’s Melbourne Rail Link plan unveiled last week is implemented. The Coalition spruiked the $11 billion Melbourne Rail Link as a heavy rail infrastructure project that would cement “Melbourne’s position as one of the world’s most liveable cities”. But details of the plan reveal Frankston line commuters would face delays travelling to some destinations. The project will re-route the Frankston line via a new train station called Fishermans Bend, named after a new suburb to be established in an industrial area near Port Melbourne. However, somewhat confusingly, the new station will be located near Crown Casino in Melbourne’s CBD. Frankston line commuters will be

forced to switch trains at South Yarra or Caulfield if they wish to exit at Richmond or Flinders Street. State Labor candidate for Frankston Helen Constas condemned the disruption Frankston line travellers

would face when the Melbourne Rail Link is complete. “It’s a disaster for Frankston and people are very concerned,” Ms Constas said. “Commuters tell me they are very

upset about the extra 20 minutes it’s going to take to get to the city – it’s time they’d rather spend at home with their families.” Frankston line trains will continue to stop at other stations in the city loop including Southern Cross, Flagstaff, Melbourne Central and Parliament stations. However, many city workers will be inconvenienced at being unable to board a direct train to Flinders Street. A-League football fans also often alight at Richmond to walk the short distance to the AAMI Park stadium. Public Transport Users Association president Tony Morton criticised the Napthine government for abandoning its long-mooted Melbourne Metro network project, which would have seen extra rail infrastructure built to the west and north of Melbourne. “Quite simply, this is policy on the run,” Dr Morton said. “If you’re on the Frankston line there will be no more Flinders Street trains for you and

unless you’re heading for the west side of the CBD you’ll now need to change at Caulfield or South Yarra.” The Melbourne Rail Link is expected to be complete by 2023. The state government said train and rail upgrades before its completion would see travel times decrease. The PTUA’s Dr Morton said there should have been public debate before the Melbourne Rail Link was finalised. Successive state governments had failed to invest in rail infrastructure and had preferred to focus on roads, according to Dr Morton. “There is nothing for people who live and work in the suburbs, unless you drive a car.” Dissatisfaction with Frankston line train services was regarded as a major factor in Liberal MPs winning several ‘sandbelt’ bayside seats from the ALP at the 2010 state election. The coalition has a one-seat majority and faces a battle to retain marginal bayside seats at November’s state poll.

Plan to cap rates labelled a ‘farce’ By Chris Brennan A LABOR Party plan to force councils to cap annual rate rises at or below the level of inflation has been labelled a “farce” that if implemented would hit vital services and infrastructure. Mornington Peninsula mayor Cr Antonella Celi joined a chorus of criticism against the ALP proposal, warning any move to cap local government rates would result in a “significant reduction in the delivery of quality infrastructure and services provided to our local community”. Opposition leader Daniel Andrews said last week that, under a Labor state government, Victorian councils would be forced to cap annual rate rises in line with the Consumer Price Index. Under the current system, councils are free to raise rates as they see fit, with strict budget transparency protocols and the potential wrath of ratepayers at the voting box keeping rises in check. But council rate hikes usually far exceed inflation. Shire rates last year increased by an average of 5.9 per cent, more than double the inflation rate of 2.9 per cent. The council has budgeted a further 5.9 per cent rise for 2014-15. The current CPI figure is 2.7 per cent. Mr Andrews said that if the ALP won the election, any council wanting to increase annual levies charged to property owners and businesses at levels exceeding the official rate of inflation would have to justify the rise to an independent Essential Services Commission. The ALP policy sent a “clear mes-

sage that we expect councils to keep their rates in line with CPI, any increases above this must provide a clear benefit to ratepayers”, he said. “Under Labor, councils will be forced to limit rate rises and detail where every dollar will be spent, because ratepayers deserve a fair go,” he said. However, Cr Celi said a similar cap on rates in place in the 1990s had proven disastrous and had been dumped as a result. “Many councils simply didn’t have enough money to adequately invest in the maintenance and upgrading of community infrastructure and to meet the continually rising expectations of their communities,” Cr Celi said. “More than a decade later, many still haven’t closed the infrastructure renewal gap. Fortunately, Mornington Peninsula Shire has.” Member for Mornington and Parliamentary Secretary for Local Government David Morris agreed restrictions on councils’ ability to set rates was the wrong approach to reigning in spending. “It’s a very blunt instrument and it doesn’t work,” Mr Morris told The News. “What tends to happen if councils are forced to cut back cost is they go for the low hanging fruit – capital works get wound back, peripheral services get cut and lower profile programs that are often there to help more vulnerable members of the community are the ones to suffer budget cuts.” The answer to reigning in local government spending lay with better monitoring and oversight, he said, adding

that the state government had spent two-and-a-half years working with councils to develop a comprehensive performance reporting regime, which will be implemented from 1 July. The new Performance Reporting Framework would identify where councils were performing well, where they needed to improve and whether the community was getting value for money for the provision and maintenance of services, infrastructure and facilities. Hasting MP Neale Burgess agreed, saying he couldn’t understand why the state Labor Party would consider revisiting a failed policy. “Labor must have been asleep in the Parliament as from 1 July, councils will already be required to report on and justify expenditure as a result of the Coalition government’s performance and reporting reforms,” he said. “Labor scrapped the existing rates cap when they were last in office after their ministers got sick of routinely signing off on over-cap rate hikes. “It is laughable for Labor to lecture councils on expenditure control when Labor itself cannot manage money; just look at their waste and mismanagement around the desalination plant, myki and the north-south pipeline. Mr Burgess said the government had been working to put downward pressure on rates by increasing state grants to local government by 54 per cent since the election. Nepean MP Martin Dixon said the while councils needed to be mindful of not adding to the cost living burden of its ratepayers, capping annual rate

rises would not help. The Municipal Association of Victoria also condemned Labor’s plan, accusing the Opposition of bringing back a “failed” reform first introduced by former premier Jeff Kennett in the 1990s. “Rate rise restrictions leave councils with two main choices – reduce services relied on by communities or reduce capital spending to maintain assets,” MAV president Bill McArthur said. Frankston City Council joined the shire in voicing strong reservations about any moves to cap rates in line with inflation. Frankston mayor Cr Darrel Taylor said the majority of council expenditure went on items not factored into CPI, with cost increases often far exceeding inflation, such as in the case of building materials, which in recent times had been rising by about 4.5 per cent a year. “Any linking of rates to CPI would therefore create a funding gap that would escalate over time and result in a deterioration of services and facilities,” Cr Taylor said. “It is also important to note councils currently invest a significant amount of ratepayers’ money building, managing, operating and upgrading infrastructure and services on the state government’s behalf. Frankston City Council would welcome any proposal that locks in sufficient levels of state government funding to reduce this burden on ratepayers and allow rate increases to be kept to a minimum.” He also rejected accusations of

council waste, claiming that local government was “the most efficient tier of government in Australia, costing taxpayers only 3.5 cents in the tax dollar, with state and federal governments accounting for 96.5 cents between them”. Cr Celi said the shire council placed a “relentless focus” on innovation to meet rising community expectations and to respond to growth in demand for services due to population growth and changing demographics, without increasing the cost burden on ratepayers. In a statement on shire’s website responding to the ALP proposals, the mayor said the peninsula also faced a greater exposure to the impacts of climate change than many other municipalities, so significant council investment in flood and fire prevention works must continue, she said. “Mornington Peninsula Shire has had rate levels amongst the lowest in the state for more than a decade, and we are committed to keeping our rates as affordable as possible,” Cr Celi said. “Growth in demand for ratepayer services and infrastructure is becoming greater and the Shire remains responsive by innovation in service delivery, increased use of digital technology including social media, and review and refinement of systems and processes across every activity undertaken by council. “Through this response, the shire is able to deliver a high standard of services and infrastructure at rate levels among the lowest in the state.”

AT its meeting on 22 April 2014 The Mornington Peninsula Shire Council recommended a 5.9 per cent average increase in rates next year. The council rejected a motion by Cr David Gibb, seconded by Anne Shaw that in addition to the 5.9 per cent rise that the Municipal Charge be increased from $180 to $190 which meant that ratepayers would also have to pay a further $10. Council now proposes to borrow a further approximately $1 million to offset the loss of revenue because the Municipal Charge will not be increased. The 5.9 per cent increase is 18 per cent more than the shire told the government less than 12 months ago in its Strategic Plan that rates would only increase by 5.0 per cent for each of the next four years (ie years 2014 to 2017). How will the rate increase affect you? The rate increase is an average increase across the whole of the shire, however every second year the shire is required by government to revalue your property and this year is a reevaluation year. This will affect you because your rates are based on the value of your property and will vary from the 5.9 per cent average increase. If the value of your property increases less than the average rise across the Shire then you will be lucky because your rate increase will be less than 5.9 per cent. Conversely, if your property value increases more than the shire average then you will pay more than 5.9 per cent. In effect you subsidise those who have been lucky and pay less.

The reason the government (not the council) requires rates to be based on the value of your property is because those who have the higher valued properties are considered to be better off financially and are able to pay more. This is often called social justice. Although government directs that rates should be assessed on the value of your property it is the council which sets the amount you pay and the extent of the increase. Research by the Mornington Ratepayers’ and Residents’ Association has found that rate increases over the last decade have been approximately three-times higher than the increase in CPI and double the Municipal Association of Victoria’s estimate of the real increase in councils’ costs. Both major political parties have expressed concern that the rate rise over the last decade has been excessive. A recent survey by the Herald Sun’s found that 92 per cent of readers believed councils should be banned from increasing rates above inflation. The Leader of the Opposition recently announced that “Labor will force councils to cap their rates at CPI and justify any further increases. Councils wishing to raise their rates above CPI must appeal to the independent Essential Services Commission and justify any rate increases”. No doubt this will bring a loud and angry response from the strong council lobby group but like the rest of us in the community and business they need to tighten their budget and become more efficient. The shire’s rate increases of the last decade simply cannot be sustained in future.


LETTERS Rates need redevelopment

ALP plan could stymie shire By David Harrison MORNINGTON Peninsula Shire’s decade of strong rate rises – up nearly 120 per cent since 2004-05 – could face a tricky hurdle next financial year if Victoria’s Opposition is elected in November. Labor’s announcement that it would cap rate rises at CPI and require councils to justify higher rises means the shire would have to get such rate proposals approved by the independent Essential Services Commission. It would likely face a further hurdle at the ESC were it to follow its normal practice of omitting the municipal charge from its rates calculation. This practice has been hotly disputed for years as giving a false picture of rates rises. Councillors voted recently not to raise the charge by $10 to $190. It was $80 in 2004-05. They approved a rate-in-the-dollar rise of 5.9 per cent after debate that it should be pegged at 5 per cent and money borrowed to make up the shortfall. Last year recently departed finance chief Marilyn Kearney admitted the real 2013-14 rates figure was higher than announced and amended

it to incorporate the municipal charge. She left several weeks ago in the midst of preparing the recently approved 2014-15 budget. Labor leader Daniel Andrews said the ESC would determine whether rate increases are fair, and will take into account: n Any extraordinary circumstances (e.g. natural disasters, new functions); n Other sources of income available to the council and their overall financial position; n The continued maintenance of essential council services. At present the ESC ensures that Victorians “pay a fair price for gas, water and electricity. It is the sensible authority to determine council rates.” Mornington Peninsula Shire’s stated policy is to lift rates by inflation plus 2 per cent. It has rarely followed this policy, with rates sometimes double or more the CPI. Labor would require councils submit draft budgets to the ESC before they can be adopted. This would ensure “that councils are properly managing their budgetary responsibilities, and not hitting ratepayers with unsubstantiated or excessive rate increases, Mr Andrews said.

OVER the last four years, Rosebud house sales have reached record prices due to investors buying properties to rent or redevelop. I live in Rosebud. Two years ago, at the last property revaluation, I was hit with a $100 increase in my rates. This year will probably be the same. Our mayor, Cr Celi, states: “For some this means the welcome news that their property value and personal wealth has increased. However, for some, that also means that they will pay proportionally more in rates” (‘Volatile property prices set to impact rates’, The News, 29/4/14). Well Cr Celi, the personal wealth may have increased due to revaluations, but ratepayers who actually live here like myself would have to sell our home to access this increased wealth. The cost of living has increased dramatically! Mornington Peninsula Shire rates will increase 5.9 per cent next financial year, more than double the rate of inflation. The municipal charge will remain at $180 for all rateable properties. This means that for my modest forty-year-old twobedroom home in Rosebud, I pay the same charge as the multi-million-dollar mansion in Portsea! Why isn’t this in proportion? Cr Celi also states the reason for such an increase is “that growth in demand for ratepayer

services and infrastructure is increasing”. Isn’t that what we pay our rates for? The Shire proposes to borrow another $2 million during the next financial year. As the cost of servicing the Shire borrowings of almost $38m will be approx.$2.5m, isn’t that robbing Peter to pay Paul? The Shire has decided that it will more than double our existing borrowings in the next few years, not to increase ratepayers’ services but to spend on one large infrastructure project (the SPA) on the Rosebud foreshore. This means that our future rates will be unaffordable to the majority of ratepayers. Malcolm Campbell, Rosebud

Stop monkeying around on CCTV IT is disappointing to find the CCTV cameras in Hastings debacle and recreational vehicle laws (which are apparently on the Shire’s agenda) still stuck on a growing to do list. The CCTV debacle started long before the events at the Jewel Shed last year. The CCTV cameras have been on the community’s agenda since before the state election campaign in 2010. Our local MP Neale Burgess, and Shire councillor for Cerberus David Garnock have been pushing for these cameras since they were elected. However, they and the community have been let down by United Energy, The

state government and the Mornington Peninsula Shire. No one genuinely cares what issues exist between these organisations. No one is interested in the soap opera this issue has become. Get on with the job of installing the much needed cameras! Unfortunately, this soap opera has also engulfed the issue of recreational vehicle laws here in Mornington Peninsula Shire’s jurisdiction. Given recent events, these laws are needed. The Hastings Community Alliance was told in November these laws were meant to be implemented by the end of 2013. In case no one at MPS HQ in Rosebud owns a calendar, it is now May 2014. Whatever the delay is, can it be sorted as soon as possible, as no one wants to see a reoccurrence of recent events involving recreational vehicles (or monkey bikes). Monkey bikes being ridden on public property is not just a community or parental issue, it is also a governmental issue. Chris Fisher, Hastings

Sport support a sound footing for business owner

WOMEN IN BUSINESS

STRONG community involvement is an important tennent of success for Karen Gay from Westernport Flooring Xtra. It is fair to say that Karen and her family lives and breathes community involvement. Karen has strong ties to the community; especially the sporting community. She is heavily involved in the Balnarring Netball Club as director of coaching, and also with the Mornington Peninsula Netball Association. Her family is also involved with the local sporting community, playing netball, football and cricket. Karen’s husband Stuart is assistant coach for

the seniors at Hastings Football Club and father John, who works in the business, is head of the football department at Hastings.

Community called to unite behind local business By Gail Loveridge, Heritage Tavern All business owners know how much work, passion and dedication it takes to make a business succeed. Quite often a decision to be in business become a lifestyle choice. Taking some time to relate to other business owners enables us to work on our businesses and not just work in the business. Balnarring Business Group meets every first Friday at the Heritage Tavern where business owners have the opportunity to network. Last meeting’s theme was “Shop Local”. The loss of 2 local hardware shops has sent a strong message to our community. If local business is not supported it will just disappear. Members of the local community are encouraged

to consider this when using their purchasing power. Saving 50 cents on a purchase with a big business may in fact cost the loss of the local bloke. Supporting local business makes our community stronger and keeps the money local. The Heritage Tavern is used by many local business owners to meet with clients over a quiet coffee or lunch and our mid week roast is often a great time to take staff out to dinner as a thankyou. Our $10 “Tradie Lunch” continues to offer great value during the week and if you are time poor ,please phone and place your order in to be ready on arrival. n Heritage Tavern, 3059 Frankston-Flinders Rd, Balnarring. (03) 5983 2597. www.heritage3059.com.au

100 YEARS AGO THIS WEEK...

Mrs Swords turns 94, Ned Towers dies after “internal trouble” Compiled by Cameron McCullough From the pages of the Mornington Standard, 16 May 1914 Mr S. S. Price, surgeon dentist, will be at Nurse Jackson’s Private Hospital, Frankston on Sunday next (tomorrow.) *** The Book Committee of the Dromana Library have arranged with “Mullens” for a supply of new books monthly. *** Members and intending members of the Frankston Choral Society are invited to the annual meeting on Monday next at the Mechanics’ Hall. A good programme, ping pong tournament, and supper. *** Major and Mrs C. W. Campbell returned to Amesfisld Park last Saturday after an interesting motor tour throughout Australia. We expect in a future issue to chronicle some in interesting particulars of the tour. *** An important unreserved clearing sale will be conducted by Messrs Brody and Mason at Ann Villa, Wells Street, Frankston on Wednesday next, 20th May, when they will offer the superior furniture etc of Mrs A. Harris, who is leaving the district. Full particulars are advertised. *** Woods’ Great Peppermint Cure, For Coughs and Colds, never fails, 1s 6d. *** The well known business of Messrs A. Nunn and Sons, general merchants, of Mornington, has been purchased by Mr Higgs, of Melbourne, who intends carrying on the business under the same lines and with the

same staff as his predecessors, and the general public can depend upon receiving the same attention and courtesy as hither to. *** At the recent musical examinations for the degree of D.M.S.V., Miss Dorie Overton, pupil of Miss Olive Sherlock D.M.S.V., was successful in obtaining the highest honours out of over 200 competitors. Miss Sherlock is to be congratulated upon her student obtaining such a high degree of proficiency. *** At a meeting of the Board of Management of the Melbourne Ragged Boys’ Home Mission held last week in Melbourne, Mr J. B. Jolly, of Frankston, headed the poll, and was elected to the Council of the institution. We learn that Mr Jolly intends to move that a local committee be appointed to assist in the management of the Seaside Home at Frankston. *** The Dromana Presbyterian Church, which has been closed for a fortnight, has in the meantime been painted inside and out. The old residents will be pleased to hear that the Rev J. Barnaby, (who is a local product, and one of the foremost preachers in Melbourne), will conduct the reopening services at Dromana on Sunday next, morning and evening. A good congregation is expected. *** Mr Fred Taylor, the manager of the Frankston Motor Garage Proprietary Ltd has taken up his duties at the garage at Frankston. Extra cars are being installed by the company at Frankston, whilst a car will also be

stationed at Mornington and Chelsea respectively, and later on, other towns of the Peninsula will be given cars. To the order of the company, two “Grant” cars are at present in transit to Australia. *** An American saloon worker was trying to persuade an Irishman to vote for the saloon by using the threadbare argument that if you close up the saloon and cut off the revenue, it will be necessary to close the public schools. “And then what will your boy do for an education ?” “I’d rather have my born learn his A B C in heaven than to be able to read Latin in Hell.”

“Ned” Towers, who was a land holder in the Langwarrin district, and highly respected for his sterling worth and unassuming ways, died suddenly in Melbourne lately, having been unsuccessfully operated on for some internal trouble.

*** The second of the series of winter socials in connection with Frankston St. Paul’s Club was held on Wednesday evening in the Mechanics’ Hall. The weather was rather boisterous which, no doubt, accounted for the rather small attendance.

*** “Ned” Towers, who was a land holder in the Langwarrin district, and highly respected for his sterling worth and unassuming ways, died suddenly in Melbourne lately, having been unsuccessfully operated on for some internal trouble. *** Mrs J. W. Swords, of “Victoria Villa” Dandenong, celebrated her 94th birthday lately. Born at Nenagh, Ireland, in 1820, Mrs Swords was married there to her late husband by the Lord Bishop of Killaloe 1840. Soon afterwards the couple sailed for Australia, leaving Liverpool in the sailing ship Theresa, and arrived in Port Phillip after a trying voyage of six months. For several years she resided at Port and pulled the first impression of “The Port and Guardian”, the first newspaper published in Victoria, outside of Melbourne. Her late husband conducted “The Guardian” for some years. Messrs F. W. and H. Swords, of “The Dandenong Advertiser,” are sons. Mrs Swords is naturally becoming feeble, and the annual festival, which in the past was attended by a large gathering of relatives, was this year restricted to a small family reunion. Mrs Swords is a well known resident of the Frankston district, having resided here for a number of years, during which time she took a great deal of interest in school matters. *** A conference of representatives of the Progress Associations of the Peninsula was held at Bittern on Monday evening last. Delegates from the following associations were present:

Westernport, Mornington, Crib Point Bittern, Balnarring and Moorooduc. It was resolved that a federated association be formed, the objects being to support the development of railways, postal and telephone services, roads, water supply, foreshores, ports and harbours, etc. The following resolution was carried unanimously “That the federated progress associations emphatically protests against any departure from Admiral Henderson’s programme as affecting the Flinders naval base, such as the proposed deferring provision for floating dock, and the carrying out of repairs to destroyers at Williamstown, instead of at the base.” *** The football season opened in earnest in the Peninsula on Saturday last, when the weather was all that could be desired. At Somerville last year’s premiers were defeated by the home team after a strenuous match, while Dromana accounted for Frankston at Dromana. Tyabb were at home to Mornington, who defeated them by a substantial majority. Spectators should witness some interesting football before the season closes. *** Shire of Frankston and Hastings - Notice to ratepayers to pay rates. Ratepayers are hereby notified that, in order to be placed on this year’s Voters Roll, all Rates must be paid on or before 10th June. Interest at the rate of 6 percent will be charged on all accounts not paid on that date, and legal proceedings will be taken for their recovery without further notice. Dog fees and Pan fees must also be paid on or before 10th June.

FOOD & ENTERTAINMENT

From boysenberry to men By Stuart McCullough FROM a young age, I wanted to be older. I expressed this deep-held desire in a range of ways, including a brief period during primary school in which I dressed like a Cockney shoeshine, complete with flat-cap. I was, of course, a complete fraud. I may have looked like I could give your shoes a spit and polish at a moment’s notice but, in truth, I rarely cleaned my own shoes much less someone else’s. Besides, it’s hard to polish gumboots to a satisfactory standard. But I didn’t only dress as though I was much older; I frequently tried to eat beyond my years also. I have been making up for it ever since. I am a hopeless sweet tooth. In fact, despite not being entirely straight and suffering a variety of flaws too numerous to mention, my teeth are possibly the sweetest thing about me. Not that it’s my fault. I come from a family of committed sweet teeth. Even my father, whose original teeth were replaced sometime back in the 1950s, still has a sweet tooth. It’s something that stays with you for life. People commonly toss around the term ‘chocoholic’ lightly, as though it was some kind of joke but, frankly, those people have no idea what it is to be hopelessly enslaved to the brown stuff. Were I ever to win a Golden Ticket, I would have to be restrained. Like Anthony Hopkins in Silence of the Lambs, I would be bound in a straitjacket with a metal grill over my mouth and wheeled across the thresh-

old by Willy Wonka himself. Sadly, only that kind of brutal security would be enough to prevent me from going absolutely berserk from the first moment I set foot in the Chocolate Room. Left to my own devices, I would surely make Augustus Gloop look like the very height of restraint as I guzzled, gulped and pretty much stuffed my face from a variety of angles until

being tasered by an Oompa Loompa. But despite my fondness for the sweet stuff, when in public I was conscious of displaying restraint. I didn’t want the world at large to know that I had a sweet tooth that had managed to work its way through the rest of my body. When at a restaurant, my natural instinct would be to order chocolate spaghetti and hang the consequences.

As for choosing an ice cream, I would be drawn to the double chocolate fudge-tastic as surely as a mosquito to a blue light zapper. But despite these deep urges, I would resist. Instead, I would consciously select the most grown-up thing on the menu I could think of. For decades, I chose things I wasn’t particularly interested in eating, all for the sake of creating the illusion of being more grown up. Generations of waiters and waitresses must have puzzled at the fact that I always looked slightly disappointed whenever I was served a meal. This was especially true of whenever our family went out and ate pancakes. The restaurant had a kids’ menu full of wonderful pancake options, most of which lavished generous serves of chocolate in one form or another. I, of course, was duty bound to resist. Instead, I trawled through the adult menu looking for something that suggested that I was deeply sophisticated and mature far beyond my tender years. For reasons that are now unclear, I thought that boysenberry sent just the right message. Truth be told, I did not know then what a boysenberry was. It simply sounded exotic. I knew of no one who grew them and imagined that they were from some far-off land. It reminded me of the snozzberries on the lickable wallpaper in Willy Wonka’s foyer. I believed then that the boysenberry and snozzberry could well be related. In truth, a boysenberry is some-

thing of a mutant – a cross between a raspberry and a blackberry. I’d even go so far as to say that the boysenberry is the ‘Liger’ of the berry world (ask Napoleon Dynamite). Ironically, at that time blackberries were my sworn enemy. That’s because they grew in plague proportions down in the back paddock and I spent nearly ninety percent of my time – including when I ought to have been at school – pulling out thorny blackberry bushes with my bare hands. This accounts, I feel, for my present-day aversion to anything resembling manual labour. But I was blissfully unaware that whilst I did battle with blackberries on a daily basis and regarded them as nothing more than a weed, I was ordering its illegitimate offspring on my pancakes in place of my one true love – chocolate. I have long since given up pretending to be sophisticated. Once, I always wore a dinner suit complete with a bow tie to ‘casual clothes’ days. Now I’m unlikely to wear anything without an elasticised waist. Gone, too, is the desire to be older than I am. Time has taken care of that. These days I am just as likely to order boysenberries as I am to dress like a Cockney shoeshine. My abiding affair with chocolate, however, continues unabated. It’s strange to see which things persist into adulthood and which things fall away. Boysenberries may come and go. Chocolate is forever. www.stuartmccullough.com

Doggies are the real deal PENINSULA LEAGUE

By Toe Punt Mornington proved it has taken the next step and is a real challenger for the 2014 Peninsula League premiership after smashing reigning premiers Edithvale-Aspendale by more than six goals. Despite trailing by a point at the halfway mark of the clash, the Dogs booted nine goals to three in the second half to record a comfortable 18.13 (121) to 12.13 (85) victory. It was a highly entertaining game. It was free flowing with plenty of skills on display. The Doggies have been suspect when they have been challenged in the past but on Saturday, when the heat needed to be turned up, it was the home side that came to the fore. The introduction of Dale and Danny Nolan into the team, along with man mountain Michael Gay, cannot be underestimated. Dale Nolan has booted 13 goals in his past three matches, including five on the weekend. He has 17 for the season. His brother Danny is controlling the engine room and is damaging when he runs forward also.

Danny Nolan has been in the best players three times in his five matches and has booted goals in all but one match. Anthony Simpson was at his best for the Dogs on the weekend. Chris Paxino wound back the clock with a best on field performance and Chris Baker once again proved how valuable he is to this team. Despite the experience and recruits, the Dogs also had the likes of teenagers Jake Smart and James Fletcher running around. Will Goosey wouldn’t be far away either. There’s a nice blend. With wins against both grand finalists from last year, the Doggies now need to set new goals of finishing in the top three. Simply playing finals is no longer good enough for this team. Bonbeach swung the ledger back into their own favour on Saturday when they held off a fast finishing Langwarrin to win a thriller 12.9 (81) to 11.11 (77). The Sharks have won their past two matches against previously undefeated teams in YCW and now the Kangaroos. They are starting to get all of their stars on the park together and they are beginning to have an impact on the contest.

On Saturday when the game needed to be won, Travis Johnstone stood up, along with Paul Rebeschini and Shane McDonald. Matt Clifford was clearly the best player on the ground while Jackson Casey and Mark Tyrell were also dominant. The Sharks lost Josh Bull early in the game, which meant all of the ruck duties were left up to Dylan Jones. Langwarrin also lost their number one ruckman Matt Naughton for most of the second half as a ruck option. Langwarrin didn’t hit the front at any stage in the match, although they did draw level on several occasions. Bonbeach kicked the first two goals of every quarter, except for the last, which always gave them a buffer. The Kangas would fight their way back but the Sharks had the answers. The home side peppered the goals in the last quarter (1.4 to 0.2) but just couldn’t get over the line. Sean Herdman was very good for the Kangas with three goals while Liam Hogan did lots of work around the ball. Skipper Scott Sienkiewicz was also dominant. The experience of the Sharks, the confidence in their own ability and that

of their teammates and their composure under pressure couldn’t be underestimated. They won the contested footy and their work rate and intensity was high. Langwarrin wanted to play fast flowing footy and Bonbeach wanted it in close. The difference in the end was that Bonbeach controlled the tempo of the game for longer periods. Langwarrin also lacks a big, strong forward. Matty Dimkos is the answer there. Frankston YCW bounced back on Saturday, getting the job done against a winless Seaford, 16.12 (108) to 9.8 (62). The Tigers had lost three games by less than two goals leading up to this clash however, on Saturday, they just couldn’t get close enough to the Stonecats to strike, despite leading at the first change. Jai Coghlan was arguably the best player on the ground while Lachy Wallace was a welcome return. Ben Crowe was outstanding for the Tigers, while Dylan Crump was again in great form. Karingal booted more than one goal for the first time in three matches on Saturday, kicking three against Pines. The Bulls booted three goals in the

opening half and four in the second hour, however, still went down 7.6 (48) to 18.16 (124). Shaun White booted five for Pines in a best on field performance while Luke Houldcroft, Dale Tedge and Jamie Messina with three goals were outstanding. Jack Wheeler also played his best game for the club. George Angelopoulos, Brad Groenendyk and Michael Burke were the best of the Bulls. It took until the last quarter for Mt Eliza to shake-off a persistent Chelsea on Saturday, eventually winning 11.20 (86) to 10.14 (74). Despite having seven more scoring shots, the Mounties needed to boot five goals to three in the final term to get the four points. Tim Strickland booted four goals in a match winning performance for the Redlegs, while Ben Lean and Sam Gill were also dominant. Kristian Harper was named Chelsea’s best in only his second game while Zach Graham was outstanding his first senior game. There’s a lot to like about the way Cheslea are progressing. The Redlegs on the other hand have a lot of work to do.

Magpies keep flying high, remain undefeated NEPEAN LEAGUE

By Toe Punt CRIB Point maintained its position as the only undefeated side in the competition with a 23 point victory over Rye in Nepean League football on Saturday. The Pies were jumped in the opening term, trailing by 20 points at the first change, however as they have done so often in the opening five games of the season, they stormed back into the contest to lead at half time. Glenn Boyd is really starting to find his mojo and he finished with four on the weekend for the Pies, while another recruit, Brad Arnold, played his best game for the black and white. Luke Herrington and Jon Flack continue to relish the fact that they are not the only players for the opposition to worry about these days. They were both outstanding, as was Jack Johnson, who booted three goals. A four goal to three third quarter set up the win for the Pies, kicking 16 points clear before recording a 17.12 (114) to 14.7 (91) win. Accuracy in front of goal really did keep Rye in the contest. Aaron Findlay made it eight goals in two matches for the Demons with another four on Saturday, while Matty Siberas, Ben Cain and Jai Lloyd were outstanding. Rosebud is in a spot of bother after losing its fourth match for the season against Red Hill on Saturday. The Buds led at quarter time by 22 points and by 15 points at half time. However, Red Hill’s leg speed was the difference in the second half, booting eight goals to three to win 12.12 (90) to 11.3 (69). Twenty-five scoring shots to 14 for the match and 15 to four in the second half really did highlight the Hillmen’s domination after half time.

Letting it slip: Hastings were defeated by Sorrento after leading at every change. Picture: Andrew Hurst

Jarryd Douglas booted four for the Hillmen while the leg speed of Dylan Neal was a highlight of the match. Peter Dal Lago and Jarred Eames also provided that high level experience when the game needed to be won. Greg Bentley worked tirelessly for the Buds, as did Sam Kremeich in a run with role, while Tom Baker was good up front with three goals. The Hillmen maintained their second position on the ladder with four wins

Western Port News 13 May 2014

and one loss. Rosebud has slumped to ninth and is now two games and 30 per cent outside of the top five. The Buds must win all of their next four matches against Tyabb, Devon Meadows, Somerville and Frankston Bombers to have any chance of playing finals football this season. Somerville won its third straight game after a shaky start to the season, leading all afternoon to beat Devon Meadows.

The Eagles should have put the Panthers to the sword in the second quarter, however, kicked 3.7 to 3.2 to let the opposition off the hook. However, the visitors dominated in the third term, booting 4.6 to 2.2 to set-up a match winning 22 point buffer at the final change. The Panthers did come back in the final quarter however Somerville hung-on to win a low scoring contest, 10.18 (78) to 10.9 (69). Josh Collie continued his brilliant form for the Eagles with three goals while Daniel Dickinson, Justin Allsop and Timmy Hirst were integral in the win. James Bow was up to his old tricks with six goals for the Panthers, while Pat Harmes and Daniel Watson were also fine contributors. In better news for the Panthers, Alex Doria, Stef Baumgartner and Brian Wapshot all played well in the reserves, while Beau Miller should be back this week or after the bye. The Panthers have also lured the mercurial Andre Young from Cranbourne, who will be important in the back half of the season. Devon Meadows remains in the top five despite the loss. A last quarter fade-out saw Hastings go down to Sorrento by 17 points at David McFarlane Reserve. The Blues led by eight points at quarter time, two points at the main break and by three points at the final change. However, with the home crowd on their side, the Sharks dominated the final term, booting 4.8 to three goals to win 13.19 (97) to 11.8 (74). Leigh Poholke made it 16 goals in two matches with seven goals on Saturday, while Trevor Mattison and James Hallahan once again set up the win with their run through the middle. Dan Noble plonked himself as a

permanent forward and was rewarded with five goals while Steven Robb finally got his opportunity after dominating in the reserves and was arguably Hastings’ best. Colin McVeigh and Daniel Wishart continued their brilliant starts to the season. The Blues are only a game and three per cent outside of the top five. Dromana continues to sneak under the radar, notching up its fourth win for the season, this time against Frankston Bombers. The Tigers are in third place on the table however, with all the talk surrounding the new kids on the block in Crib Point and Red Hill, as well as the slump of Rosebud, people are not talking about Dromana. On Saturday, the Tigers extended their lead at every change, winning 16.16 (112) to 7.17 (59). Anthony Bruhn finished with seven goals for the Tigers while Daniel Guerts and Jack Fowler played integral roles in the domination. Shaun Brand and Jeremy Waixel were the best of the Bombers, while Sam Drake was back and playing good footy. In the final game, Pearcedale displayed some of its best football for the season, beating Tyabb 26.15 (171) to 14.12 (96). In a free-flowing contest, the Panthers set-up the win with an 11 goal to one second quarter. They booted 12 goals to seven in the second half. Basil Sibosado and Pat Cadd each finished with five goals for the Panthers while Troy Jacobson and Dylan Hoare were dominant. Jake Anderson booted three goals and was Tyabb’s best player, while Shane Waterstone and Justin Volk were among their team’s best yet again.

Blues let Sharks slip through the net HASTINGS FNC

Football Report - By Phil Stone SORRENTO away is always a tough day and we went into the game with the belief that we could bring home the four points. We fought hard and we were determined and committed to the contest. I felt that our pressure was very good and this showed with our tackling stats being the highest they have been all year. The game was a hard and physical game and I was proud of the way our boys went about it. We were down three players and in the end we just ran out of legs. We didn’t work hard enough defensively in the last quarter. We should walk away with our heads high and know that we have the ability to play good footy. I felt that Noble was fantastic kicking five and doing some good ruck work. McVeigh was fantastic playing a well rounded game. Steve Robb and Terry Green showed great pressure and I felt Jolly fought hard all game. We have put ourselves in a situation that only we can fix. There are good signs there and we will be looking for four quarter efforts from here on. The reserves took the long trip down to shark park. With a few injuries in the seniors and a few boys gone up it was going to be a huge test for the young blue boys. At the start the sharks jumped out to a two goal lead until our boys settled

and starting matching it with them in every area. Lance was given a huge job on their coach at centre half back and wasn’t giving him a sniff. Jake Hewitt was moved all over the ground because of his ball winning ability. Half time it was anybodys game and the boys came out willing to give whatever it took to get the edge on the sharks. At three quarter time there was nothing in it and both sides were looking very tired. It was going to come down to who wanted it the most and the young blues were willing to give what it took to get their first win down at Sorrento. They came out firing. In such a tight contest the boys broke it open in the last ten minutes to have a fantastic win. The best players on the day were the whole 22 that were on the field with the best team football for the year. Under 18s Tyabb/Hastings combined side went to Pearcedale but were unable to withstand a last quarter surge from the home team. Cnditions were trying, and with two late withdrawals and an early injury to the away team, they were on the back foot early with no rotation options. After a tight first quarter the game began to open up in the second quarter. Tyabb-Hastings lead at the main break by seven points kicking four goals in that term. In wet conditions,

it wasn’t a pretty game but both sides adapted well. An arm wrestle for most of the day, the ascendency didn’t swing Pearcedale’s way until the last quarter where they were able use the ball through the middle of the ground with their fresh legs and were able to put the score on the board. Stephen Williams was best on field racking up contested possessions and clearances. The Regan brothers continued their good form with Jayden booting three goals leading competition goal kicking and Brock rebounding off half back with great effect. Gallant in defeat the boys once again were undermanned and a 29 point loss not a true reflection of the game. Still improving as a group, the boys will look to bounce back against the league leaders next week. Netball Report - By Tanie Stickland DESPITE not posting a win on the board for the season so far, C and B have continued to show great determination and improvement on both an individual and team levels. If the girls keep their heads up and keep working hard at training our first wins won’t be too far away. A Grade posted their second win for the season comfortably over Sorrento. The girls came out firing from the start and were all class, well lead by Sheridan, Amy and Danielle. Final score Hastings 72 Sorrento 19 Next Home game this Saturday Hastings FNC vs Devon Meadows FNC We look forward to seeing you all there.

Crib prevail in another come from behind win CRIB POINT FNC

“Not Crib Point” seems to be the catch cry each week as opposition sides shake their head in disbelief that they’ve been beaten by a tight, disciplined, talented unit. Again Crib Point found themselves six goals behind and again they found a way to will themselves into the contest, keep chipping away to take the lead, and ultimately win their fifth on the trot to go 5-0 and remain on top of the ladder. It was a slow start for Crib Point who were unable to get their matchups right early as Rye started well and built a strong lead heading into quarter time. After quarter time Crib Point seemed to get it right and chipped away at Rye’s lead to take a narrow lead at the main break. The second half was all Crib Point as they had the majority of the play but we’re not quite able to put Rye away. Rye gave a yelp early in the last quarter to get within 16 points but steadying goals from Flack and Jacob Cook iced the game. Brad Arnold was best on

ground as Boyd snagged four and Flack added three. Zak Condick, in his first season of senior football, played another great game down back to provide plenty of drive on the last line of defence. After the game Annable was upbeat but keen to keep the clubs performance in perspective. At 5-0 Crib Point have come a long way and are doing it the right way with a team filled with local talent, but it’s a long season and the depth of the competition is it’s best in years. The reserves returned to the winners list with their first win against Rye on their home ground. For the first time this season they were switched on from the start to take an early lead which they never lost, running out winners by 23 points. The only downside were the three 50 metre penalties which all resulted in goals. Aside from the 50s, it was a good even team performance with contributors across the park. Beau Monty was best on ground and racked up plenty of the football early with late inclusion Timmy Malcolm regaining some of his older

form. Luke Collins was a great target up forward and kicked two but it was also his work creating a target and bringing the ball to ground for the crumbing players to get that made him dangerous. The under 18s also broke through for their first win for 2014 with a solid 42 point win over Rye in the early game. It was an arm-wrestle early but once the boys managed to break through to kick consecutive goals to kick away, they never looked back and had control of the game after half time. Tyler Wilton kicked four and was a great target up forward. Zac Vines was best on field with Ethan ‘Warlock Junior’ Smith providing great drive out of the back line. Juppa Rutherford has them playing improved footy each week and the talent is there to sneak a few more wins. It was a great day for Crib with all footy and netball teams claiming wins. This Saturday we face Red Hill at the nest for a 1st vs 2nd battle in the seniors. It should be another great day. It’s sure to be huge.
