Robots give students Earthly insights

Nitty, gritty: Western Port Secondary College students Tainui, Jake and Crystal with their earthquake machine. Pictures: Gary Sissons

WESTERN Port Secondary College students brought out their earthquake simulators at last week’s STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths) graduation ceremony. The students used Lego EV3 Mindstorm robots to answwer the question: “How can a robot help us understand the Earth’s surface”. The school received philanthropic funding to buy the robotics kits for the program. “The students designed and built their own earthquake simulators and miniature houses to test the stability and structure of their houses,” course coordinator Chris Quinn said. Also on Tuesday, Tyabb Railway Station Primary School’s STEM program ended with the graduation of 33 grades five and six pupils. Mr Quinn said the primary STEM program helped strengthen the network of schools to improve educational outcomes for pupils. Western Port Secondary College was selected by the Education Department as a STEM catalyst school with two staff gaining their diploma in STEM education at Deakin University. The STEM centre is running the school’s years seven and eight STEM programs. “This Primary STEM initiative is future-proofing the employment opportunities for young people in our community,” Mr Quinn said. “Seventy-five per cent of the fastest growing occupations now require STEM skills and knowledge and, over the next 20 years, 44 per cent of Australian jobs are at risk of automation and computation.”

Hastings costliest port option Keith Platt keith@mpnews.com.au THE latest “discussion paper” released by Infrastructure Victoria estimates building a container port at Hastings will cost more than double that of developing a new port at Bay West, inside Port Phillip. Using scenarios based on ships capable of carrying either 14,000 TEU (based on 20 foot long containers) or

18,500 TEU, the paper puts the cost of developing Hastings to handle nine million TEU a year brought in by the smaller vessels at $12.8 billion; building Bay West for the same number of containers is $6.14 billion. When the larger ships are taken into account, costs at Hastings go to $12.9 billion as opposed to $6.4 billion at Bay West. Taken to their ultimate third stage of development, a container port at Bay

West would require close to 30 million cubic metres of dredging and 47 million cubic metres for Hastings. The Bay West proposal near Werribee involves using dredged material to build an “island”. Material dredged from Western Port would have to be dumped 50 kilometres offshore in Bass Strait, with 18 million cubic metres of suitable sand then being brought back from the same area for reclamation works.

The 30 kilometres of shipping channels into Western Port will need 2.6 million cubic metres of dredging to accommodate the larger ships (18,500 TEU), but the actual port area will require a further 21.6 million cubic metres of dredging. The Bay West/Hastings comparison is designed to help the state government choose one of the two sites for the state’s next container port. Infrastructure Victoria states that

while it might be “technically possible” to increase capacity at the Port of Melbourne “by four or five times” it is also working towards finding a “tipping point” as to “when it may be more practical to create additional port capacity at a second container port”. As it edges closer to recommending either Hastings or Bay West as the site for a second container port, Infrastructure Victoria has ruled out Geelong or Portland. Continued Page 4

Failed bid to end booze ban Neil Walker neil@mpnews.com.au

BOOZE on the ratepayers’ tab was nearly back on the menu at Mornington Peninsula Shire when councillors considered revising their councillor expenses policy. A bid by Cr Hugh Fraser to reintroduce alcoholic drinks for councillors after meetings was not supported by fellow councillors. “In so far as the consumption of alcohol is concerned, that [should be] permitted after council meetings — not before council meetings and not during council meetings,” Cr Fraser

said at the 27 February meeting. Councillors in August voted to stop filling up council liquor cabinets at ratepayers’ expense. Other councillors voiced discomfort at reintroducing ratepayer-funded booze which cost about $27,000 over four years during the previous council term. “I do like my glass of champagne every now and again but I’m happy to wait until after council meetings or in a social context to actually go out there and purchase my own,” Cr Antonelli Celi said. “This money that we save on alcohol we can actually divert to other

meaningful community projects.” Cr Sam Hearn also came out against ratepayers picking up the tab for councillors’ drinks. “I really enjoy a beer with friends … but I know many people have negative alcohol-related experiences,” he said. Cr Hearn said “it is the responsible thing to do” to not have the community pay for alcohol. There is no alcohol ban on council premises so councillors will be able to bring their own beverages on site for post-meeting tipples. Councillors, elected in November, also agreed to their expenses being published on the shire’s website each

month during the current four-year council term. The move to increase transparency around councillor spending comes after it was revealed 11 shire councillors during the 2012-16 council term collectively spent about $480,000 over three years (“Shire’s councillors costly”, The News 14/11/16). Neighbouring Frankston and Kingston councils – with nine councillors each – spent $205,329 and $101,807 respectively over the same period. Councillors can claim out of pocket expenses for travel, child care, “information and communication” and training and conference attendance fees.

The new policy tightens up oversight of councillors’ expenses. Chief financial officer Matthew Green and governance manager Joe Spiteri will sign off on any expense claim that exceeds $2000. At last month’s public council meeting councillors decided to cap training, conferences and seminars expenses at $16,000 a councillor over four years. All councillors, with the exception of Cr David Gill, voted to adopt the new expenses policy. Cr Gill believed overseas trips should not be included as a claimable expense for councillors.

Artists unite over loss of studio space MEMBERS of the McClelland Guild of Artists attended a demonstration by Melbourne artist Peter Smales on Saturday 4 March. They will decide at a general meeting later this month how to handle the loss of their studio from July this year. Some members have been painting at the studio for more than 20 years and nine tutors will lose their jobs.

The paper released earlier this month by Infrastructure Victoria, states that modelling has shown that up until 2066 there will be no problems handling the number of ships expected to pass through The Heads into Port Phillip. “If growth in ship numbers were to continue as forecast then the ultimate capacity constraint would not be reached until sometime in the mid2100s,” the discussion paper states.

Great Ship Channel will need to be widened from its present 245 metres to 425 metres; the entrance to Western Port would need “some realignment”. Infrastructure Victoria CEO Michel Masson said the body of evidence is the result of many months of technical investigations and engagement with stakeholders and local communities. “We have used existing studies, undertaken new technical investigations and consulted with key stakeholders and local communities over the past six months to develop this evidence base on when we might need a new port, and where it should be located,” he said. “This is not our advice to the government, it is the information, data and analysis we have collected to date.”

Westernport Peninsula Protection Council secretary Karri Giles said the amount of dredging needed for a container port at Hastings was “more than double Port Phillip Bay’s infamous channel deepening”. Western Port would be “permanently muddy”. “Infrastructure Victoria thinks the main reason to build a second container port is in case retailers want to bring in goods in the world’s second biggest ships. Most right thinking people here would rather the ships fit the port than build a whole new port to take bigger ships,” Ms Giles said.

Merger talks follow footpath fight Liz Bell liz@mpnews.com.au

POLICE searched a car in Mornington-Tyabb Rd last week and allegedly found methamphetamine and stolen number plates. Senior Sergeant Steve Duffee, of Mornington police, said the car was stopped near Yuilles Rd, 4.39am, Monday 6 March. A 37-year-old Hastings man was charged with possessing methamphetamine, handling stolen goods, possessing the proceeds of crime and committing an indictable offence while on bail. He was bailed to appear at Frankston Magistrates’ Court on 19 April.

Path protest: The town of Somers was deeply divided last year over the idea of concrete paths being built throughout their quaint coastal town.

charge schemes around the shire, after surveys showed that residents opposed the plans. VCAT had rejected the council's plans in Somers largely due to insufficient community consultation, resulting in a new policy on special charge schemes that requires all residents to be surveyed before forcing residents to contribute to infrastructure projects. Mr Lewis said the council still wanted to build a footpath around the coastal town, but had indicated it might consider a mix of concrete and gravel paths that were more sympathetic to the environment, “The issue is safety and we need paths because at the moment people

have to walk on the roads and you can't even push a pram around town,” SVCA president Pam Bannister said it was important to “have real conversations” and not just listen to the opinions of a few older community members. “I think there has been a change in culture since this issue began, and I'm in favour of the groups joining so we have stronger representation. “We need to move forward.” Ms Bannister said there were other issues that needed addressing, such as speeding cars and lack of parking, which could help address concerns about dangerous walkways and the need for paths.

Car boot sale

But former SVCA member Michelle Gregory was more sceptical about a successful merger. “The possibility of one group being absorbed by another is as likely as one native tribe gladly joining another and leaving behind its identity and set of beliefs and values,” she said. “All we want is to protect Somers, but everybody has to be on the same page.” Cr David Gill, who has been banned from voting in council on the footpath scheme because he represented the SVCA before he became a councillor, said “there is compromise in the air”. “It's not a closed matter yet, but it's good that the residents have a voice.”

NEW Peninsula Men’s Shed will hold a car boot sale on Saturday 18 March. Multiple stalls at the shed, 370 Craigie Rd, Mt Martha, will offer a wide range of goods, and there will be a jazz band, sausage sizzle/barbecue, coffee cart, and Devonshire teas. Details: Robin Ross 0438112319.

LAST year's protests which forced Mornington Peninsula Shire to scrap its plans for a concrete footpath in Somers has prompted talk of a new community supergroup to represent residents in the seaside township. While the Somers Village Community Association (SVCA) had a minor win at the Victorian Civil and Administrative Tribunal last year when the council's case was rejected, the battle is not over, as council prepares to pursue another footpath scheme. Somers Residents Association (SRA) president Gerry Lewis, whose group supported the council's proposal to build the concrete paths, said residents needed to “work together”. Plans to build a 5.2 kilometre concrete path in the village caused considerable tension in Somers for almost 18 months, with the SVCA eventually launching the legal challenge in VCAT late last year and accusing the council of siding with the SRA. Despite being on the losing team in the footpath debate, Mr Lewis said the David-and-Goliath battle showed what residents could do if they had a voice. “The positive step out of this is that we see the need to act together,” he said. “It won't work if two groups are pulling different strings.” Community opposition and the costly VCAT case launched by the SVCA was a significant factor in council abandoning several other special

Speed fine inquiry ‘never got through’

Red faces over shop colour A BLUE over the colour of a heritage-listed fish and chip shop in Sorrento has led to Mornington Peninsula Shire looking at ways of having the original colour scheme restored. It says it is “working with the tenant and the building owner to look at potential options to remove the paint” – despite having issued a permit for work. The contentious bright blue of the old The Esplanade building has shocked many locals, with Cr Bryan Payne describing it as “another blot on the heritage buildings in Sorrento”. But shop proprietor Julian Gerner, who is behind with the $50 million Continental Hotel redevelopment, defended the colour and confirmed the paint had not come into contact with prized raw limestone – only bagged render on the shop’s facade. “Taste is very subjective,” he said. The shire’s executive manager planning services David Bergin confirmed the building was within a heritage overlay under the peninsula’s planning scheme. “A planning permit was issued for minor works at the front of the building, including a deck and painting of the façade,” he said. “Council has received concerns from a number of community members about the painting of the façade, and is working with the tenant and the building owner to look at potential options to remove the paint.” Stephen Taylor

Community thanks: Kathy Robinson receives her award from Dominic Tallon, Alf Tallon’s son.

Award reward for volunteer KATHY Robinson, of Hastings, is the recipient of this year’s Alf Tallon community memorial award. The goes to someone who contributes their time and effort to their community. It is supported by the Bank of Bendigo. Ms Robinson started volunteering 40 years ago as a driver for the Association for the Blind, while also advocating for people with disabilities and working for the Office of Public Advocacy. After retiring, she continued to support her community as treasurer of the Probus club and Hastings U3A. She also volunteers at the Bays Aged Care, the Reading for Life program,

Western Port Secondary College breakfast program, as well as assisting in various roles with her church and the Vinnies Hastings conference. “Despite her busy life she always has time for family and friends,” Hastings U3A president Dianne Ashton said. Ms Robinson received a community award plaque from Dominic Tallon at a ceremony at the Hastings Hub recently. It entitled her to nominate a local organisation to receive $1000 – and she chose Hastings U3A. The money will go towards subsidising Hastings U3A’s 10th birthday and annual meeting on Tuesday 28 March.

A PORTSEA resident who lodged a submission to Road Safety Camera Commissioner John Voyage relating to his speeding fine says it “probably never reached him due to administrative errors”. David Gilder, who uses Peninsula Link regularly, said perhaps many others were in the same situation. “When I became aware of the commissioner’s investigation I wrote to Civic Compliance Victoria asking that I be added to the list of names that he required. I informed them that I had already paid my fine,” he said. “My request was forwarded to the Department of Justice and Regulation. I next received two letters from different sections of Victoria Police telling me a review had judged me guilty and that my fine was still valid. “There was no mention of Commissioner Voyage.” Mr Gilder said he did not request a review of his fine which was already paid. “All I asked for was to have my name added to the list before the commissioner to add credibility to his review,” he said. “After the bureaucratic run around I gave up. “One wonders how many others had similar experiences trying to contact the commissioner.”

Mr Gilder’s comments follows ‘Speedsters’ slow to complain’ (The News, 21/2/2017) in which Mr Voyage said he was puzzled at the lack of “objective evidence” received from motorists blaming their speeding fines on faulty Peninsula Link cameras. Mr Voyage was getting ready to wrap up the evidence-collecting part of his investigation which he said he wanted to finalise in six-to-eight weeks. His report was to then go to Police Minister Lisa Neville. Another fined driver, Mark Mercuri, told the ‎Peninsula Link 108 group he recently received an email from Mr Voyage saying he was still “taking into consideration all the information” he receives, despite his being delivered a few days past the deadline. “I can only assume he will still be open to receiving any decent arguments, information or proof if you have it, which I’m glad he has so that’s a positive at least,” Mr Mercuri said. “It’s worth a shot so don’t hold back to help build a stronger case.” Peninsula Link 108 member Jarrod Salmon said the drivers’ deadline would have applied if Mr Voyage was receiving lots of correspondence and needed time to slow down and look through it all. “I can't see there being a problem with the odd [submission] hitting his desk,” he said.

Support centre’s manager bows out with sadness

LISA Elliot is taking time to rethink her future after years of advocating for the Mornington Peninsula’s vulnerable people. Picture: Gary Sissons

THE former manager of the Mornington Community Information and Support Centre Lisa Elliot has thanked the Mornington Peninsula community for its support and encouragement throughout her tenure. Ms Elliot, who did not return to her position after the Christmas break, last week penned a heartfelt open letter to the community in the wake of her sudden departure. In the letter sent to The News, Ms Elliot told the Mt Martha, Mt Eliza and Moorooduc communities that it was “with great sadness that I didn’t get to say goodbye to so many of you”. During her seven years as the centre’s manager Ms Elliot was an outspoken advocate for the peninsula's vulnerable residents. “To the volunteers of the many programs of the centre, I want to leave you

with my gratitude for the work you all do to help our most vulnerable community members,” her letter stated. “There are days when I know you have saved a life with your care and kindness ... we will never know how many.” Ms Elliot was well known in the welfare and service sectors for her passion for upholding human rights, and she thanked the community members who shared that vision. “I have sat with you on committees and watched you advocate on behalf of the people you represent. I know the passion and the fight you have to stand up for human rights. You all know who you are, we have talked often. “ President Robin Cooper said the centre was about to advertise for a new manager and the position was being temporarily filled by acting manager Yvonne Ander-

son. “It's business as usual at the centre,” he said. The centre is in the middle of renovations after flooding in Main St earlier this year caused a sewage overflow that left the building water logged and a little on the smelly side. Ms Elliot finished her letter with a sentimental tribute, urging anyone who wanted to contact her to find her on Facebook. “When I think of you all now, while writing this, I have a tear. Mostly because I didn’t get to say goodbye but also because I will miss you. I had a family among you all for a period of time and I want you to know I appreciate the support and kindness you gave me and it was my absolute pleasure to work with you all on the front lines.” Liz Bell

Nautical theme as returns sail into art show history ANCHORS, sails, navy bunting and a Sailability yacht from Mornington Yacht Club set the on-stage nautical theme for the 800 paintings in this year’s Mornington Art Show. The week-long annual show was the 45th held by Mornington Rotary Club, attracting more than 1800 visitors to Mornington’s community theatre in Wilsons Rd. Chair of the organising committee John Renowden said sales and attendances “exceeded those of recent years”. “Funds raised from the show will enable Mornington Rotary to continue to provide its local and international community and humanitarian projects,” he said. Mr Renowden said the money would go towards projects aimed at eradicating polio and malaria. “Locally, the club will support the purchase of CPR mannequins for The Bays hospital and the construction of a long table in Mornington Park.” He said three sailors from HMAS Cerberus, Crib Point, “dropped anchor” to open the show on Thursday 19 January. Music from the Bakery Jazz Trio played as more than 300 at the opening moved among the range of artwork from local and interstate artists. Also at the opening were Rotary district governor Lynne Westland, Mornington Peninsula Shire mayor Cr Bev Colomb, Cr Antonella Celi, Mornington MP David Morris, Dunkley MP Chris Crewther and MP for Goldstein Tim Wilson.

tenant Commander Cassandra Mohap and club president John Parkinson. “During the week, demonstrating artists were popular with those in attendance and provided an insight to the creative process,” Mr Renowden said. “The sponsorship from local supporters of the project again provided the Mornington Rotary Club with its funding lifeblood to present what has become the one of the largest art shows in Victoria. The Mornington Art Show is now second only to Camberwell in its size and sales of art work.

Food stays on the table at community sit downs Neil Walker neil@mpnews.com.au

All fired up for kids’ fun run IT gobbles fuel and emits smoke and steam like a legendary dragon, but the historic 75-year-old steam train K163 is a drawcard for children where it is stabled at Moorooduc railway station. The engine will be all fired up on Sunday (19 March) when the train again takes to the tracks to see if it can beat a bunch of fleet-footed children. Mt Eliza Rotary Club’s annual kids’ fun run is open to children aged three to 12 and has graded distances (150-1200 metres) according to competitors’ ages. The children race on a separate purpose built and secure track alongside the locomotive. As well as running, children at the event can enjoy such free activities as face painting, balloon sculptors, an animal farm, adventure vegetable garden, show bags, and the CFA along

with food and drinks stands. Mornington Railway Preservation Society will also be running train rides to Mornington. Money raised by Rotary at the fun run will help buy a specialist infant transport incubator for newborn babies in Peninsula Health’s paediatric unit at Frankston Hospital. The paediatric unit provides care to children from the Mornington Peninsula and Frankston. The fun run activities will be held 10am1pm Sunday 19 March at Moorooduc station, Moorooduc Highway, Moorooduc (Melway 105/ K9). Details: www.mycause.com.au/events/kidsfunrunk163. Registrations for the run can be made online and on the day at the station at least one hour before a run.

DINNERS will still be dished out to ratepayers who sit down to break bread with councillors at regular community council meetings despite some misgivings about the cost of the meals. The meetings, held six times a year, see elected representatives mix with the people they represent, but some councillors at the latest public council meeting, on 27 February, questioned spending ratepayers’ money on feeding ratepayers. Council officers had prepared a report - at the request of unnamed council-lors - that suggested the meetings either be axed, continue as they are or offer finger food instead of a full meal. Governance manager Joe Spiteri advised councillors “high 30s [dollars] per head just on catering” was spent on dinners for attendees. The yearly cost was estimated at about $25,000. Cr Antonella Celi wanted council to continue hosting the community meetings but believed costs could be lower. “I think that council really needs to seriously consider and revise the amount of expenditure that we’re actually doing at the community meetings,” Cr Celi said. “It’s great to see them [residents] at a meeting, but most of them go after dinner and a lot of them don’t remain for the rest of the meeting unless there’s an item of interest for them.” Community council meetings are held before public council meetings where councillors debate and vote on municipality concerns such as planning matters. Cr Hugh Fraser was troubled that community council meetings could be on the chopping block.

“It’s rather unfortunate and distressing to see that this council seems to be retreating from its engagement and consultation with the community,” he said. “The community loves to see its councillors at work and see its representative and structures happening and operation and, what’s more, being carried to the four corners of the shire. “It’s in Mt Eliza, it’s at Mornington, it’s in Rosebud when we meet, it’s in Hastings, it’s in Somerville. We go to the community. We are representatives of the community.” Crs Sam Hearn, Frank Martin and Bryan Payne were also concerned at the cost of meals and thought a less lavish food spread more appropriate. “I believe we’re putting too much emphasis on food for the community. The prime thing we want to do is get the community here,” Cr Martin said. “Do we have to bribe the community to get here? I don’t think we do.” Cr David Gill backed the continuation of community meetings but said they “are a little bit boring” and should be more structured and give ratepayers the chance to ask formal questions of councillors “in a Q and A session”. “We need to lift our game a little,” he said. Cr Hearn noted that Cr Gill - often a lone voice against council resolutions early in the new council term - had been trying to spark interest in council meetings. “I’d like to thank Cr Gill for his personal contribution to making our council meetings entertaining and unpredictable this year.” Councillors voted to maintain the status quo and keep hosting community meetings, meals but not entertainment included.

Rockin’ own: Normie Rowe, left, and Ross D Wylie will be appearing with Johnny Young at Mornington.

Pop stars back to thrill THREE of the biggest pop icons of the 1960s Normie Rowe, Ross D Wylie and Johnnie Young - are coming to the Mornington Peninsula for a spectacular step back in time. Between 1965 and 1967 Rowe was the biggest male pop star in Australia, and for two years he reigned supreme as Australia's first King of Pop. He had a string of solo hits, with Shakin' All Over the top-selling Australian single of the 1960s and still one of the biggest-selling Australia recordings. Johnny Young started his career in the 1960s with number one hits Step Back and Cara Lyn. But he is probably best known for his signature hit All My Lovin, released in 1967. Of course,

his is also well known for producing and hosting Young Talent Time, a launching pad for several young performers such as Tina Arena. As a recording artists, Young has penned many songs for other artists, including The Real Thing for Russell Morris, Smiley for Ronnie Burns and The Star for Ross D Wylie. Ross D Wylie arrived in Melbourne in 1967 as a 24-year-old to run the four-hour live music show UpTight. He had several hits, including his cover of the Ray Stevens hit Funny Man. Rowe, Young and Wylie will perform at the Peninsula Community Theatre, Mornington, on Saturday 1 April. Book at Trybooking. com/255607.

Drug forum CLUBS in the Mornington Peninsula Junior Football League and Mornington Peninsula Cricket Association have been invited to participate in Thursday’s Tackling Illegal Drugs forum at the Hastings Community Hub, 1973 FrankstonFlinders Rd, Hastings. The forum is part of a program aimed at helping sporting clubs to address illegal drug-related issues. It is funded by the federal government and coordinated by Good Sports. The forum is designed to help sports clubs have “the conversation about the widespread use of illegal drugs” and give clubs the opportunity to come together and tackle the issue as a team. Ideally, at least two club members should attend the forum. All clubs need to register at goodsports@adf.org.au before the event and will be required to scan their ticket on entry.

Generous offer makes James’s day A MORNINGTON boy who was stung by a stingray at a Rosebud foreshore camp and then had his bike stolen the same night has had his faith in human nature restored. James Gardner, 12, stood on the stingray while standing knee-deep in the bay and received an excruciating sting, Friday 24 February. Mum Fifi, who rushed to help him, said the normally tough young man was “beside himself with pain”. But then, to make matters worse, his valuable Pilgrim BMX bike and several other bikes owned by campers were stolen by young thieves – who had the cheek to try to sell them at a nearby skatepark the following day. Rosebud police confirmed last week that the bikes had been recovered, including James’s pride and joy, but not before a generous offer

by Mercedes Benz Mornington dealer-principal Chris Thoday to replace the stolen bike. With the bike now safely back home and sharing James’s bedroom instead of the garage, Mr Thoday’s generous offer was gratefully declined by Mrs Gardner who said: “The fact that people are willing to be so generous is wonderful. “It was a lovely gesture and James was really humbled by the offer.” So, instead of replacing the $200 bike, Mr Thoday did the next best thing: on behalf of the dealership he presented James with a Mercedes Benz slot car set. Anyone with information on the thefts should call Crime Stoppers 1800 333 000. Stephen Taylor

Get ready: While they are adept at running for office, politicians were also happy to line up with Toorak College’s principal Kristy Kendall and chairman Peter Wickenden on the college’s new sports track. With Ms Kendall and Mr Wickenden are Flinders MP and health and sport minister Greg Hunt, Dunkley MP Chris Crewther and Mornington MP David Morris.

College’s new field and track TOORAK College recently celebrated the official opening of a new international-standard sports track and hockey field, and is hoping the ground will fill a gap in quality hockey and track facilities on the Mornington Peninsula. Hockey Victoria has expressed interest in having a permanent presence at the field, and the school hopes it can be a venue for international competition. Hockeyroos goalkeeper, dual Commonwealth Games medalist and Olympian Rachael Lynch joined students during a training session for

the opening and expressed her approval of the facility. Principal Kristy Kendall said the land used to known as “the wilderness” and was converted to an oval before being transformed to a track and hockey field. “It didn't get a lot of use as an oval, but now we hope it will be the most used athletics track around,” she said. The oval is named after former Toorak student Jean Gilbert (nee Robinson) who cut the ribbon with chairman of the board, Peter Wickenden.

Disabled set surfing numbers record Keith Platt keith@mpnews.com.au THE Disabled Surfers’ Association Mornington Peninsula branch set a new record in the number of participants at one of its surfing event. With 163 taking to the surf at Point Leo on Saturday 4 March the branch broke the national record of 160. Australia’s 16 DSA branches are in Victoria, NSW, South Australia, Western Australia and Queensland. There is also a branch in New Zealand. The day at Point Leo was “a relief” for DSAMP secretary Bill Hallett as it followed an event scheduled in January which had to be cancelled be-

cause of sharks being attracted to the decomposing body of whale at nearby Shoreham. “Well, that was a relief. Not a whale carcass for miles around. No hungry orcas or sharks - just a cracker of a day with blue skies, sunshine and a wide open beach with great waves,” Mr Hallett said. There were 200 volunteers on hand to help the surfers and ensure the event ran smoothly. Mr Hallett hoped the “frustrating bottle-neck” of surfers waiting for the beach wheelchairs would be fixed “with our planned boardwalk which we're committed to build before next year”. “People will be able to get down to

the beach edge in their own wheelchairs and get a great view of what's going on from a viewing platform while waiting for a beach wheelchair to take them across the sand to the water,” he said. DSAMP founding member John Bowers said the branch had enough money to build the boardwalk near the Point Leo lifesaving but needed more for the ramp. “We plan to raise more money by selling planks to generate the required funds.” Mr Bowers said the lifesaving club and Point Leo Foreshore Committee have allocated money to the project as well as Mornington Peninsula Shire and Flinders MP Greg Hunt through

the federal government’s stronger communities program. “We have had to alter our plans to limit damage to native vegetation and [Liberal Nepean electorate candidate] Russell Joseph is helping by having conversations with the Department of Environment, Land, Water and Planning. “We will start construction after any vegetation issues are resolved and our plan has been ratified by council, so the boardwalk can be operating for next summer.”

Surf contest THE Maladiction Longboarders are organising a surfing contest to raise

money for the Disabled Surfers Association Mornington Peninsula branch. The teams’ event is on 1 April – April Fools’ Day - at The Pines beach (Atlas) Shoreham. Entry is $200 for each four-person team and surfers will ride the “soft” surfboards used at the annual events run by the DSAMP. As well as surfing ability, points will be awarded for surfers’ costumes. Prizes for the DSA Champs Surf Competition include $2000 in Jetstar travel vouchers; a Trigger Brothers surf pack; and dinner for four at Stillwater, Crittenden Estate from Peninsula Speech Pathology Services.

A new look for Frankstonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s specialist rehabilitation hospital.

No shortage of bidders for charity central Stephen Taylor steve@mpnews.com.au IT was an auction to warm an estate agent’s heart: historic property, 200-plus crowd, and multiple bidders for each block. And so the famed Earimil Gardens, in Koornalla Court, Mt Eliza, went under the hammer last week for the first time in 39 years. The one hectare cliff-top property, with views over Port Phillip and Ranelagh beach, was sold by long-time charity fundraisers Reg and Elaine Smith in four lots – the largest being 4295 square metres – along with two properties across the road. Agent James Crowder, of Community Real Estate, who was assisted by an auctioneer from Marshall White Real Estate, described the auction as part of a “fantastic Sunday”. “Interest seemed to grow in the lead-up and, by auction day, I had sent out 60 contracts,” he said. “There was great competition and we had at least three bidders for each block.” Six blocks went under the hammer: the main home sold for $2.62 million, tennis court for $1.21 million, one larger garden block for $1.14 million, with the sale of the other still being negotiated. The original brick veneer over the road sold for $920,000 and a vacant block that served as a car park for $810,000. “We encouraged Reg and Elaine to sell the lots individually and they are delighted with the results,” Mr Crowder said. “It is unique to find vacant lots in Mt Eliza and they were very popular. All the buyers said they would retain as much of the gardens as possible.” The generous couple, aged in their early 80s,

Nurses united: Mum and daughter nurses Melanie and Emily are keeping nursing in the family.

Nursing careers a family focus

are expected to remain in Mt Eliza. Opening the gardens for charity each spring raised more than $1 million for children with life threatening illnesses over the past 23 years.

LITTLE girls often want to grow up to be just like “mum”, and Langwarrin nurse Emily McCulloch has done just that – completing her graduate year at Peninsula Health almost 30 years after her mother. Mrs McCulloch, who graduated in 1988 and is now an associate nurse unit manager and lactation consultant in the women’s health unit at Frankston Hospital, said she had never pushed her daughter to pursue a career in nursing, but did advise her of the rewards. “I advised Emily that pursuing nursing had to be her choice, but also that it’s a very rewarding profession where you can make such a difference in people’s lives when they are at their most vulnerable.” Emily said it was a desire to help others which led her into nursing, and she is now looking after orthopaedic and plastic surgery patients on the Port Philip Ward at Frankston Hospital.

“Being able to advocate for those who need it most and being the person the patient trusts to carry them through their time of need is so rewarding and satisfying,” she said. Emily’s love of the job is something also shared by her mother, now a midwife. “I love being part of a fantastic team of midwives who are truly passionate about providing the most amazing care to women during one of the most memorable moments in their lives,” said Melanie. “I also really enjoy teaching and supporting junior midwives and helping women to breastfeed with confidence.” Emily was one of 56 nurses who completed the graduate nurse program at Peninsula Health in 2016. Fifty-seven graduates started in this year’s Graduate Nurse Program in February.

Bayside Christian College THE year 2017 is a special and exciting one in the life of the Bayside Christian College community, marking the 35th anniversary of the commencement of the college in 1982/ “We will be celebrating the opening of the first buildings at our new site across the road from our current Kinder-Year 12 campus,” said College Principal, Mr Chris Prior. “The first of these buildings will be our purpose-built trades skills centre, which includes a fully-equipped commercial kitchen, classrooms and outdoor learning spaces to support Christian vocational education and training in Agriculture (Horticulture) and Hospitality (Kitchen Operations). Our trades skills centre will be distinct from other vocational education settings, providing a nurturing environment through pastoral care and mentoring. We will support our students to

understand that they have been uniquely gifted for service, worship and stewardship in order to cooperate in God’s creative and restorative work on earth.” The programs are designed to equip students with invaluable life skills, and allow them to explore issues such as the production, consumption and distribution of food from a Biblical perspective. “Our Trades Skills Centre programs will be suitable for both VCE and VCAL students,” said Mr Prior. “We look forward to showing you our brand new facilities when they open later in 2017.” For a tour of our current campus with College Principal, Mr Chris Prior, please call our Registrar, Mrs Julie Rebbeck, on 5971 6709.

Money needed to reverse the ‘permanent solution’ I would like to commend Peter Orton and Peninsula Voice for being able to address the very serious issues of youth depression and suicide with Professor Patrick McGorry and other excellent support speakers at last Wednesday’s “Young people and mental health: helping young people stay (mentally) healthy” public forum at Mornington, attended by more than 500 people. McGorry and others have described suicide as the greatest national calamity and yet the most manageable. Loss of a young person in that context must be devastating. Eight people a day they said, imagine if eight whales a day were washed up on the beach? Funding is the great problem. If the Andrews government could contribute an extraordinary $500 million to domestic violence issues then there must surely be funds available for Dr McGorry and his team and Dr Kylie King and the Man Up team to continue their great work in finding the cause and not just treating the effect. Suicide is a permanent solution to a temporary problem. Tony Nicholl, Mt Eliza

Call for peace The Mornington Peninsula is often described as booming, but there is one boom that is not at all welcome. That boom comes from the frequency of dance parties around Main Ridge. I, along with my neighbours, are just recovering from this boom and the lack of sleep, heightened tension and irritability it creates. The so-called house warming party started at 11am on Saturday and finished at 6.30 Sunday morning. There were more than 70 cars, entry signs saying camp here, park here, a sound shed, major amplifiers and a portable loo. Fearing another sleepless night and concerned about the size and safety of the event with no security and a fire risk we told the police. The police attended in the afternoon to tell them of the requirements and penalties for breaches. That prompted a visit from the organisers to the neighbours, reassuring us and vowing that they would be finished by midnight. What followed for the next 18 hours was the inability to get away from the constant boom boom of the music and the anxiety and concern that this event could get out of hand and our own safety threatened. Mornington Peninsula Shire Council seems unable or is reluctant to do anything, customer service said they were restricted in what they could do and I have rung several councillors. The EPA only handles “industrial” noise pollution. It seems there is a huge black hole where this problem sinks without trace. The fact that such events can take place in a rural environment without any permits being issued, no notification, no security and nobody prepared to take responsibility for the serious risks involved is hard to believe. Unless this black hole is addressed, the integrity of the peninsula as a rural, peaceful and safe environment will be severely compromised. Patricia Parkinson, Main Ridge

Protect all species The human race since the beginning of time has been slaughtering one another in wars either due to colour, race, religion, greed or power. Not only that, it is responsible for the extinction of many species of living things on this planet. We still have small-minded individuals who cry out wanting a cull of Indian mynah birds, which I personally find inoffensive. The Australian miner bird is far more noisy and aggressive to humans. They will swoop on anyone approaching during nesting time, which I find amazing. So may I suggest to all these individuals advocating culling other creatures to have a look at their own species first. D Turnbull, Mt Eliza

Committed scout I don’t normally write to members of the press, but I was disappointed in Stuart McCullough’s article, “The Baden Powell Merit Badge fiasco” (The News 7/3/17). You will probably retort that it was written

PAGE 16

Western Port News 14 March 2017

tongue-in-cheek and that I lack a sense of humour. Nothing could be further from the truth. My time in the scouts, starting in the cubs, moving up to the scouts and then the senior scouts, represented some of the happiest years of my life where I learnt self-discipline, personal initiative, integrity and how to work in a team environment. I also acquired many skills which I still apply to this day, including cooking, how to survive in the outdoors and a host of other abilities which McCullough would belittle. Not everyone is suited to the scout movement and he is no doubt one of those. Poor blighter he struggles to tie up his own shoe laces. Please tell me he’s not a nerdy type that can’t even sit on the beach for fear of someone kicking sand in his face. The article demeans the scout movement, an organisation which functions successfully in many countries throughout the world and which I will defend to the day I die. It also belittles the magnificent picture of Lord Baden Powell framed by his waffle. If this is the best he can come up with, he is bereft of ideas as a journalist. Please restore my faith in his profession and your newspaper by writing something worthwhile and interesting. Rod Brown, Dromana

Tennis before skatepark Members of the Mt Martha Tennis Club and committee are seriously concerned about the conflict of location that Mornington Peninsula Shire’s skatepark design will cause (“Minister yet to roll on skatepark plan” The News 7/3/17). We are in need of more courts for our juniors. The largest sector of the club originates from young families where the juniors formulate 25 teams on Saturday. Less than one third of the teams can play at their home club. Another 15 teams play throughout the week, where about 80 per cent of the players are from young families. The club could service far more teams if it had a greater capacity. We wrote last year that the club is in support of a skatepark, as long as it is set up in accordance with guidelines as released by Sport and Recreation Victoria. This 120-page document is produced by many skating, design, construction and council groups who have significant understanding of what is effective. These guidelines have been produced by the Department of Sport to avoid public conflict. Many skateparks have been removed due to deficient placement. These five points outline where the shire’s design doesn’t meet the standards:  Parks designed to suit a large age group of skaters.  Skate prevention at night via night court lighting, adjacent.  Additional land required to allow for future growth of the park.  Adequate distance between other sporting facilities required to minimise conflict.  Site supervision recommended to prevent use at night when accidents are most likely to occur. We cannot understand why the club’s potential and its needs should be jeopardised in order to build a skatepark in Mt Martha. This location [off the Esplanade near the tennis club and Mt Martha House] will increase ambient noise and seriously degrade the game. Also, this skate park plan can never be expanded due to Heritage Victoria’s constraints on this heritage site. Ken Davis, president Mt Martha Tennis Club

Majority ignored Would John Cain, that prolific letter writer and expert on everything, please install a wind turbine in his yard and leave the rest of us to enjoy reliable electricity from, gasp, coal fired power plants (“Sun, wind, not coal” Letters 28/2/17). What if the wind doesn’t blow and the sun don’t shine? Man’s contribution to a changing climate is miniscule and you can’t fight Mother Nature. In 1969 a best selling book stated that by the 1980s it would be too cold to grow food. Recently canoeists got trapped in ice trying to prove the Arctic ice cap was melting; warming alarmist Tim Flannery predicted Perth would be

a ghost metropolis due to little rain. We have always had natural disasters, as in the words of Dorothea McKeller, we are a land of fire and flooding rains. Most bushfires are caused by lightning strikes and firebugs; some floods are made worse by the ban on building dams. Al Gore and his silly film “An inconvenient truth”, which got all the warming alarmists so excited, is actually quite laughable and hypocritical. His huge mansion in Alabama uses more power in a week than a small town uses in a year. He flies in a polluting private jet. Mr Cain has previously boasted he and a handful of people stopped a pool including a muchneeded hydrotherapy pool being built on [Rosebud] foreshore where a pool had been before. This was against the wishes of more than 10,000 people who signed a petition to get it built. It’s pretty sad when a few people can have their way and prevent a desperately needed facility being built where it would be accessible to everyone. So, you people who are against everything, just give it a rest and bow to the majority. Patrina Frederiksen, Rosebud

Cutting Sunday pays The Fair Work Commission’s decision to cut Sunday penalty rates is just cruel and unfair for so many families in our community. These are ordinary people who rely on penalty rates to pay for basic living costs: rent, food, petrol and bills. These are not luxury items. What’s worse is that the Dunkley MP Chris Crewther was a strong advocate for these changes. I wonder whether he has ever had to survive on penalty rates. I suspect not. John Lithgow, Carrum Downs

No escaping CO2 The whole crux of the [global] warming matter was missed in the letter from Henry Broadbent who would have seen from his graphs that the percentage of CO2 in the atmosphere is rising (“Power up” Letters 28/2/17). It is this CO2 which traps the heat in at night, just like clouds do. No one can dispute that fact. The heat has no time to escape before another dose of the same next day, and more build up of CO2. Was it not for the fact that more CO2 is produced than can be absorbed by the trees and the oceans we would be in the process of global cooling. The graphs which might have been correct, have had the wrong conclusion drawn. Only when we stop breeding like rabbits and let the world’s population decline will we reverse the global warming. Natural climate variations, the coming and going of ice ages, and warmer periods, are caused by the radius of the earth’s orbit about the sun varying cyclically with time. The sea is now 1C warmer than not too many decades ago It is warmer because CO2 has trapped the heat in, no other reason. William Day, Burwood

Scientific belief I read so many articles and letters written by people who have little or no understanding, or expertise, about the issue they write about. But therein lies the rub - everyone is allowed their opinion. Clearly, in many articles, there is a political bias (always unstated). Recently there have been several articles and, hopefully there will be many more on this most vital issue, global warming and climate change. I am apolitical (always have been), I believe I have a reasonable knowledge of this important issue and have a common sense approach for and a strong belief in science. Thus I firmly believe in the 98 per cent of the world’s eminent climate scientists, ecologists, meteorologists, atmospheric scientists, geologists and yes, the vast majority of economists who empirically believe that the human usage input of CO2 into the atmosphere is causing the overall average temperature of our planet to get hotter. Unfortunately, the science of climate change cannot be explained in a few simple terms as all the sciences are very complicated, that is the very nature of science. If we pollute our lands we can be fined and the pollution is very obvious; if we pollute our waterways it is a little more difficult as water moves in many directions and changes into several other forms, such as a gas and a solid, but we can observe pollution in waterways.

Our atmosphere is vastly different. How do we obverse a polluted atmosphere if the pollutant is clear and odourless? We can see particulate atmospheric pollution in many places, such as Beijing, but to say we are not causing detrimental effects on our planet is extremely naive. To say that burning fossil fuels does not cause or is not causing atmospheric pollution is, at the very least, uneducated and, at worst, very dangerous. Andrew Raff, Fingal

Population problem It has been interesting, although rather perplexing, to read in your letters over recent weeks about anthropogenic climate change (ACC) and the differing responses to this mighty global challenge. However, I can only conclude that all we are doing as a species is tinkering at the margins and not dealing with the cause. Between 1900 and 2000 the world’s population increased three times more than at any time in history. Three times more, think about that. So it matters very little how much clean, green solar and wind power we generate, how many gas guzzlers are replaced by electric cars, how many coal mines we close, and how many off-grid batteries can be harnessed to offset fossil fuel base load energy. If the human population keeps growing at an exponential rate the problem can only get worse. Billions is being spent trying to combat anthropogenic climate change with all sorts of wondrous technologies and (high carbon) international meet and greets, but there is no such thing as sustainable overpopulation. It would be a very brave politician to campaign on a low child policy and, ironically, it would unite both the left and right - albeit for different reasons - but it is the most effective strategy in reducing atmospheric CO2 and dealing with ACC. Everyone should try and reduce there carbon footprint, but if we continue bearing offspring exponentially it’s all just hot air. George Russell, Blairgowrie

Letters make The News The letter from Kate Philip (“Keep politics out” The News 7/3/17) is a concern. I look forward to the letters page every week, politics or otherwise, covering a cross section of the various opinions on a plethora of subjects. Politics in particular can be the life blood of general conversations and often provide me with comedy, a life force for an otherwise uninteresting lifestyle. “Politicians are only interested in their own re-election”? Surely not Martin Dixon, MP for Nepean? As for the “irrelevant rubbish we get in the mainstream media” that depends on one’s point of view on what is or is not irrelevant. Take Mel Farnbach’s letter (“Information should be shared with the community”) “the vast majority of the community is disgusted with the antics of the council and councillors”. Mel talks of his vital concern, pleading for inclusion on anything and everything discussed by our elected representatives. One is amused by his assumptions on our behalf, also the use of the word vast before majority to plead his case, obviously without any evidence. Then there are the regulars, Rupert Steiner, John Cain, Brian A Mitchelson, Michael Free and Hugh Fraser. All grist for the mill. It’s only one page Kate, sometimes less. If you chop out politics what’s left, the weather? We have two local weekly newspapers Kate. Take your pick. Cliff Ellen, Rye

Aunty’s carer Once upon a time, recently – Little Red Riding Hood heard that Aunty was not well. She packed some books and tapes from the ABC Shop in her basket and set off. She was horrified to see Aunty’s garden plants trampled upon, tracks everywhere and holes all over the place. She knocked on the door, which was opened by a man she immediately disliked. Where is my Aunty, she asked? I have been sent by the PM to help her, said the man. Well, said Red Riding Hood, you have destroyed her garden, left mess everywhere, and your rough appearance breathing smoke would frighten everyone. I don’t like you and I certainly don’t like the PM person if he thinks you are a help. And from that day forward, Red Riding Hood became a climate change believer because she did not like the tactics of the prime minister appointing a black coal lobbyist to the ABC board to push his agenda supporting, among other things, more black coal mining. Peter Strickland, Balnarring


100 YEARS AGO THIS WEEK...

Shire to ban powerful car ‘searchlights’ Compiled by Cameron McCullough Our Letter Box. Sir,–It is amusing to note in your journal that the shire councillors of the Frankston and Hastings shire have agreed to support the venture of the Lilydale Shire Council in an effort to secure the non use of powerful (or search) lights on motor cars. Frankston has the most dangerous and worst conditioned roads of which I know, and yet these wise? Crs. in committee, have decided to try to prevent motorists, driving cars of big value, from using a protection for the safety of their lives and their expensive motor cars; for only in these searchlights does protection lie to the driver and occupants of cars at night on the famous (for their grossly damaged and extremely dangerous parts) Frankston roads. This doing is, of course, in line with many previous doings of your should be valued councillors, who seem to have no thought for the convenience of visitors or the property of ratepayers. Without powerful lights it would be perilous to drive on certain and various Frankston roads, and if accidents occur through fault of neglect to remedy thoroughfares, which neglect seems abundant locally, when one looks at numerous Frankston roads, the council is liable for damages, but, on the other hand, damages will not bring back life should a fatal accident occur on our neglected and unsafe roads. Would it not be a wiser plan for our representatives at the Council Table to give their time and their energies to remedying the present damage and

freeing travellers in consequence, from peril, in lieu of increasing the peril of our roads by the use of dim lights. If our Crs. had in mind the thought that poor lights would not show up their neglect on our roads, as far as vision goes they may succeed, but bruises to body and limb through lesser power of headlights will engrave indelibly on the minds of our ratepayers and visitors that there is need for improvement and progress in our representatives. Yours etc, SEARCHLIGHT. Editor’s note: “Searchlight” seems to be some what hysterical in his denunciation of Councillors for supporting the action of the Lilydale Council in their endeavours to get the headlights of motor cars reduced in strength. For our part, and we think the opinion is very general with the travelling public, we consider that the brilliancy of the lights now used by some of the cars instead of being of use for the purpose of avoiding accidents, just confuses those approaching it, and renders them blind, and thus increases the danger of collision instead of minimising it. As far as our main roads being particularly disgraceful and dangerous, we think our councillors have reason to be proud of their condition, and about the only risk of accident on them is the risk that the drivers take on themselves when they indulge in reckless speed and careless driving. *** OUR Moorooduc correspondence and other interesting items are unavoidable held over till next issue. ***

TENDERS are called by the Defence department up to 22nd March for the supply of meat and vegetables to a number of camps, including Langwarrin, for the month of April next. *** THE metropolitan dairyman held their annual picnic in the Frankston Park on Wednesday last, but owing to the threatening nature of the weather in the morning the attendance was not so numerous as usual. *** CAPTAIN Guy Madden sailed for the front last week. Previous to his leaving he was tendered a dinner by his many friends at Menzie’s Hotel, Melbourne. With his many friends we join in wishing Captain Madden God’s speed and a safe return. *** A PATRIOTIC Social will be held at the Mt. Eliza School on Wednesday, 4th April, commencing at 8.30 sharp, the admission being by collection taken at the door. There will be good moonlight on the evening in question and a crowded house is expected by the promoters. *** ON Monday next Adamson, Strettle and Co. will have a good yarding of cattle, sheep, pigs, and sundries at their usual sale at Tanti, and on Friday, March 23rd at the same place they will offer 80 horses and ponies for sale including draughts, light horses, and ponies. *** ATTENTION is directed to an advertisement of the Manufacturers Bottle Company of Victoria Pty Ltd., which

appears in our advertising columns, giving notice to Bottle Dealers and others, that all bottles with the Trade Mark and Brand “M.B. over C.V.” in a Spade, moulded thereon, are their sole property and when the contents are once used, the bottles must forthwith, on demand, be returned to the company or its duly authorised Agents. *** THE return cricket match between Langwarrin Camp Cricket Club and the Frankston Club will be played today (Saturday), at Langwarrin. The Frankston Club will be entertained by the officers of the camp to afternoon tea. Frankston members are requested to be punctual. *** THE following goods have been sent by the Frankston Red Cross Society from the local depot to headquarters during the month of February :–170 flannel shirts, 30 pairs sox, 5 helmets (Balaclava), 7 scarfs, 15 pillow cases, 15 eye bandages, also 2 cases of old linen. The following donations were thankfully received :–Mrs H. Masterton, 4 doz. petrol cases; Miss Bunny, 4 cases. *** THE writs for the forthcoming election will be issued on Monday, March the 26th, at 6 o’clock, and no claims for enrolment can be placed on the rolls after that date and hour. Persons failing to enrol will be liable to a penalty of £2. It therefore behoves all persons who have not previously enrolled to do so without delay. April the 5th is the last day on which nominations of candidates will be received and the election, will be held

on May the 5th. *** We call attention to advertisement appearing in another column of large subdivisional sale in the Cricklewood Estate to be held on Easter Monday, April 9th, at 3 o’clock on the ground. The terms of purchase have been fixed exceptionally easy, viz. : £2 cash deposit and the balance at 10s per month free of interest. If for investment only, these fine allotments should be good buying seeing the very rapid improvements taking place in real estate throughout this district. With the inaguration of a water supply, electrification of the town, and the early electrification of the railway, there is no doubt that values will immediately increase, and that at no distant date this town will assume proportions as a watering place as well as of a residential centre otherwise unexpected a few years ago. We understand that within the last few weeks several villa properties have changed ownership, to say nothing of quite a lot of residential allotments which will soon be built upon showing conclusively that in the near future, Frankston will become on account of its exceptional train facilities, and splendid main roads for motorists, as well as being up to-date in the matter of lighting and water, more sought after than ever. Messrs Brody and Mason will wield the hammer on the 9th April, from whom plans etc are now available. *** From the pages of the Mornington Standard, 17 March 1917

THE MEANING OF EXISTENCE... AND OTHER SHORT STORIES

The name game - blurbs for new suburbs By Stuart McCullough TALK about squandering an opportunity. Given the chance to jazz up the joint, we have instead opted for banality. Seventeen new suburbs will be added to Melbourne’s metropolitan firmament and there’s barely a decent name among them. Sunbury South? Please. Taking an existing suburb and adding ‘south’, ‘west’, ‘north’, ‘upper’, ‘lower’ or any other form of locational qualifier is simply cheating and lacks imagination. We deserve something bold. Something inspiring. Something – dare I say it – that might make someone want to live there. So what are the new suburbs we’ll all be hearing about in the morning traffic reports in years to come? There’s Quandong, which doesn’t sound so much like a strip of shops and a housing estate as it does a large aquatic mammal. No one’s going to want to live somewhere that sounds like a giant sea cow. I’m pretty sure that if Captain Ahab survived his run-in with Moby Dick, he would have ridden to shore on the back of a Quandong. But spare a thought for the residents who will live somewhere bereft of the infrastructure most people take for granted. The answer is simple: corporate sponsorship. I can recall an era where sports stadiums had names for life. But traditional nomenclature was thrown overboard long ago and Kardinia Park became ‘Skilled Stadium’, completely wrecking the club’s theme song in the process. Ikon Park sounds like something that should arrive in a flat pack. The artist currently known as ‘Etihad Stadium’ has had so many

PAGE 18

names that it may be the only sporting arena to ever participate in a witness protection program. But sponsorship means money and, in the case of our new suburbs, infrastructure. That’s why I think ‘Kellogg’s Quandong’ has a lot of merit. But for every Kellogg’s Quandong, there’s a Plumpton. I’m not sure I’d want to live somewhere called ‘Plumpton’. It sounds like the epicentre of an obesity crisis. That said, it rhymes with ‘Compton’ and I look forward to the first generation of rappers emerging from this fledgling suburb to proclaim, with their hats on backwards and – doubtless – their elasticized waists, that they are ‘Straight Outta

Western Port News 14 March 2017

Plumpton’. Ideally, Compton would become Plumpton’s sister city, to fully realize the potential for cultural crosspollination. One of the new suburbs will be called ‘Beveridge Central’. Although it doesn’t even exist yet, I feel I’ve already been there. When I was at Uni, I lived in a large share house in St Kilda. The upstairs living room had its own bar and fridge that was forever stocked with beer. That, to me, was Beveridge Central. In fact, I recall some of our friends describing it as exactly that. Spare a thought, though, for residents of ‘Beveridge North West’, who have squandered the chance to call themselves ‘Beveridge North by North

West’ in homage to Alfred Hitchcock and lay claim to being Melbourne’s premier outer suburban destination for film buffs who are easily misled. Trust me, it’s a growing market. Then there’s Tarneit Plains. Where do I begin? One the one hand, it sounds unfeasibly modest. No suburb should have the term ‘plain’ as part of its name. Those who live there might end up having a complex. If suburbs have to have a double-barreled title, they should have words like ‘Awesome’, ‘Wonderful’ or ‘Splendiforous’ as the all-important second limb. I would be prepared to move somewhere call ‘Tarneit Amazeballs’, but not ‘Tarneit Plains’.

The other problem with ‘Tarneit Plains’ is that they’re describing what used to be there. Yes, once upon a time there were large plains of grasslands and rolling meadows. Then we decided to build about a thousand houses on top of them. It’s like those places that have words like ‘Meadows’ or ‘Springs’ as part of their name – they’re describing something they just poured a concrete slab on top of. There are, of course, exceptions. Frankly, the fact that we’ll soon have a suburb called ‘Northern Quarries’ fills my heart with absolute joy. Doubtless, local sporting teams will call themselves things like ‘The Quarrymen’, ‘The Diggers’ and ‘The Earth Movers’. The promotional campaign in support of new estates will be entitled to say, ‘Northern Quarries Rocks!’ without a hint of shame. By linking the name of a suburb to the local industry you end up with a kind vertically integrated form of cross promotion. Everyone wins. Quandong should take careful note. We need to be innovative. Agile. Creative. New suburb names should have pizzazz and not be the product of a fifteen-minute meeting before lunch (yes, I’m talking to you, ‘Pakenham East’). They should (if possible) go viral. In fact, they should go so viral that they need to be separated from others for fear of infection. Suburbs with names like ‘Funky Town’, ‘Noddyland’ and ‘New York South’ would get tongues wagging and build the kind of on-line buzz I know that we all secretly crave. It’s the least we deserve. Home sweet home. stuart@stuartmccullough.com

Bouncing the Kangas: Baxter easily accounted for Langwarrin in their semi-final. Picture: Rab Siddhi

Baxter and Mt Eliza into grand final PROVINCIAL By IT Gully BAXTER will host Mt Eliza in the MPCA Provincial grand final this weekend after both teams recorded commanding semi-final victories on Saturday. While the MPCA played its cards close to its chest in relation to announcing grand final venues, it was widely tipped on Sunday night that no other ground than Mornington’s Alexandra Park should be the venue for a Provincial grand final. While Baxter went into its semi-final against Langwarrin as unbackable favourites, the same couldn’t be said for Mt Eliza over Peninsula Old Boys. Mt Eliza did beat POB before Christmas, however, the Old Boys have been the wrecking balls of the competition

this season, at times making the opposition look second rate and in a different class. However, over the weekend, it was Mt Eliza that were in total control. The rot started for the Old Boys when the devastating Dylan O’Malley became the first of six victims for Shaun Knott with the first ball of the semi final. Glenn Prendergast was soon to follow and when Wade Pelzer was gone for 23, the Old Boys were reeling at 3/40. Skipper Matty Hyden (23) and the gifted Will Crowder (53) got things back on track with a 65 run partnership before both losing their wickets. The tail that usually does so well for the Old Boys was non-existent, losing 6/19 to be all out for 151. Knott finished the afternoon with

6/56 from 22 overs, while skipper Justin Grant claimed 3/36 from 25.3 overs. The Mounties faced the final eight overs of the day and were cruising at 0/31 at stumps with Damien Kent on 13 and Jordan Fuhrmann on 16. POB, as expected, hit back early on Sunday but Justin Grant and Keith Biggs took the game away from them again before the skipper lost his wicket after hitting a half century. Biggs remained the backbone while Lyle House smacked the winning runs, finishing at 4/155. Down the road at Greg Beck Oval, Baxter defeated Langwarrin in a breeze. Baxter chased down the 158 required for victory with eight wickets in hand. Chris Brittain belted 77 and Daniel Warwick an unbeaten 66 to get the flag favorites over the line.

On the opening day, Langwarrin capitulated after a strong start to be all out for 157. After winning the toss and electing to bat, Langwarrin got away to a strong start with Simon McEvoy (31) and Matt Prosser (34) opening with 65. At tea Langwarrin were going along nicely at 1/76. However, leading up to tea, Justin Bridgeman had bowled seven overs for a return of 0/1 with six maidens. The Kangas just couldn’t score. Prosser went straight after tea and then Bridgeman got Aaron Edwards (28) and Travis Campbell to have the Kangas in some trouble. Chamika Sattambi then came back into the attack and ripped through the underdogs. Langwarrin lost 4/3 and were eventually all out for 157.

Langwarrin legend and mentor Tim Harper said on the RPPFM commentary with Neil Williams at the start of the day that his side “didn’t have the luxury of having Chris Brittain or Daniel Warwick. We don’t have any superstars and we really need to work collectively, which we have been able to do for most of the season”. “Coming into this game and batting first, it was important not to let Dale Irving get his tail up early,” Harper said. While Langwarrin were able to withstand an early onslaught from Irving, they couldn’t slow down Sattambi, who snared four wickets. Baxter resumed at 0/2 on Sunday and dominated the second day to attack its fourth premiership in eight seasons.

Hillmen dominate in District semi DISTRICT

By IT Gully RED Hill were comfortably the best team in MPCA District cricket this season and again proved why against Flinders in the semi-final. The Hillmen cruised into the grand final after smashing the Sharks at RM Hooper Reserve. An early Red Hill Show shifted the Hillmen from their home ground advantage, however, it made little difference to the end result. Flinders won the toss and batted first, however, things turned pearshaped early for the Sharks losing 3/0

PAGE 42

to be 3/3 early in the match. Glenn Collett was at his vintage best and removed Andrew Power for a duck, before Simon Dart sent Tom Clements and Charlie Burgess packing. Flinders were never allowed to get any rhythm and form any longstanding partnerships, despite some cameo batting performances. Keeper Mason Mail made 31 in the middle order and Shane Beggs scrapped for 30, while Waide Symes contributed 30 batting at eight. Brent Martin and Carl Robinson came into the attack for Red Hill though and were able to keep momen-

Western Port News 14 March 2017

tum swinging their way with consistent wickets. Martin finished the day with 3/41 from 19 overs, Robinson claimed 2/26 from 13 and Collett was super with 2/15 from 20 overs, including 12 maidens. Dart finished with 2/20 from eight overs. The Hillmen faced the final 11 overs of the day and at sumps they were 0/22 with Matt Merifield not out 20 and Andrew Mock on one. The Hillmen’s cruising continued on Sunday, getting the win with nine wickets in hand. A wonderful performance from Joel Malcolm placed Delacombe Park in a

very strong position overnight against Main Ridge at the end of the first day’s play. It was Dean Blight with the ball on Sunday that did all the damage, taking six wickets as the Parkers rolled the Ridge and advanced to the big dance against Red Hill. Winning the toss and electing to bat on their home deck, Delacombe had a disastrous start losing arguably their best two batsmen in Jon Guthrie (11) and Nick Christides (6) to be 2/21. However, Malcolm came to the crease and was very patient to get the score to 77 before losing another wicket. Andrew Christides then came in

and contributed 33 and Ricky Ramsdale helped out too with 27 to give the Parkers the upper hand. Rowan Charles then belted 28 late in the inning to help Delacombe park to 9/235 in its 80 overs. Malcolm finished unbeaten on 87. Luke Collins claimed 3/46 for the Ridge off 17 overs while James Abbott and Nick McNamara picked up two wickets each. The Ridge lost wickets in quick succession and despite Michael Holmes and Ed Aarons getting things back on track, a direct hit from Nick Christides saw Holmes head to the sheds run out and it was all over at that point.

Blues, Stonecats in big dance SUB-DISTRICT By IT Gully HASTINGS will play Frankston YCW in the Sub District Grand Final this weekend after both claiming strong semi-final victories on Saturday. However, despite their strong wins, things could quite easily have of gone the other way for the Blues and Stonecats. Despite Hastings finishing with 235, they were in some early trouble against Tootgarook before Luke

and Jake Hewitt came together at the crease. At 4/50, the Hewitt brothers were able to steady the ship and get to tea in a reasonable position at 4/99. At that stage Luke was on 25 and Jake was on 15. AJ King, Stephen Brain and Matt Whelan all got among the wickets and Paul and Zac Stephenson all chimedin also. King finished the innings with 3/33 from 18 to be the stand-out bowler for the Frogs, while Whelan claimed 3/57

from 16 overs. The Frogs were faced with the unenviable task of facing the final over of the day, getting through unscathed to resume at 0/0 on Sunday. Tootgarook were in the game early on the second day but when Matt Whelan was dismissed for 45, the Tooters slipped to be 6/112. In the end, Tootgarook fell short, all out for 150. Frankston YCW too were in early trouble against Ballam Park. The Knights won the toss and sent

the Stonecats in to bat. Early it looked like it was to be a masterstroke. The Knights claimed the first three wickets for just 19 runs and when Levi McLoughlin-Dore was gone for 10, the Stonecats were in real trouble at 4/36. The evergreen Paul Bradley (39), Brett Hugdson (10) and Matt Black (26) were able to stem the tide and then skipper Andrew Kitson (14) and Sam Fulton (18) saw the score go from 8/107 to all out for 168. Kitson and Fulton’s contributions were match-winning.

Ballam Park faced the last four overs of the day on Saturday and Lai Leaunoa, who opened the batting with 33, got the breakthough. Ballam Park resumed on Sunday at 1/5. Things never got any better for the Knights, losing wickets consistently, handing the Stonecats an easy victory. David Cross hurt his knee on the Saturday afternoon, which meant his influence with the bat was no existent, while Stuart Plunkett was removed relatively cheaply after being dropped twice early in his innings.

Freeman sends Mornington into fourth round SOCCER

By Craig MacKenzie SUPERSUB Michael Freeman’s extra time winner at Dallas Brooks Park on Saturday sent Mornington through to the fourth round of the 2017 FFA Cup. Mornington and fellow State 1 South-East title contender Malvern City went head to head in what loomed as the most intriguing cup clash of the round. The pair locked horns in a battle that didn’t reach the heights expected but nevertheless was a closely fought affair that saw Mornington run out a 2-1 victor. Mornington assistant coach Dale White stepped into the head coach’s role in the absence of Adam Jamieson, holidaying in Fiji along with club president Matty Cameron and their families. High profile Mornington recruit Ryan Paczkowski was put through by Wayne Gordon after five minutes but impressive Malvern keeper Alex Connell got a hand to Paczkowski’s shot and the ball was eventually cleared. English import Nathan Smith was adamant that the ball had crossed the goal line following his low near post strike that Connell got down to onehanded before gathering in the 11th minute. The physical battle between Mornington hard man Simon Webster and Malvern striker Anthony Giannopoulos made for interesting viewing both on and off the ball. Mornington’s regular No 1 Kris McEvoy was another bitten by the holiday bug so his place in goal was taken by former Frankston Pines youngster James Laminski. In the 38th minute Laminski failed to cleanly handle a curling left foot strike by Giannopoulos and Daniel Hilder pounced on the loose ball to open the scoring from close range. Early in the second half a lower back injury forced Webster to be replaced by Danny Black and Smith’s left foot strike from 15 metres levelled the scores in the 61st minute. Extra time was need to separate these sides and the decisive blow was struck by quicksilver striker Freeman who had replaced the injured Gordon at the end of normal time. In the 10th minute of extra time Malvern’s Michael Knott mistimed his pass back and Freeman won the race against the advancing Connell and rolled the ball into the unguarded goal to make it 2-1. Steve Elliott’s man-of-the-match display was a highlight while veteran Craig Smart ran his heart out against a talented Malvern midfield. The downside for Mornington was the injury to Gordon’s right forearm and the club was waiting for x-rays to determine whether or not there was a

break. Casey Comets had to rely on keeper Fariz Zenoozi’s two saves in a penalty shootout to see off visitor Whittlesea United in their cup clash on Saturday. Goals by Ray Markley and Andy Stubley had Comets 2-0 up after 22 minutes but Whittlesea hit back to make it 2-1 at half-time. The visitors drew level in the second half but an excellent strike from the edge of the area by Dejan Radojicic in the 89th minute looked to have given Comets the match. Three minutes into injury time Whittlesea again levelled forcing the contest into 15 minutes each way of extra time. Comets’ Guiseppe Guarnaccia and a Whittlesea opponent were sent off in the first half of extra time and when the deadlock couldn’t be broken Zenoozi played a crucial role in Comets winning the penalty shootout 6-5. New Comets signing Allando Matheson played 90 minutes up front before being rested after arriving last week. The 25-year-old holds dual Canadian and Jamaican citizenship and has been on the books of Toronto FC. Skye United travelled to Kim Reserve on Saturday but went down

2-0 to State 2 North-West outfit Altona City in their cup tie. From the get go it was a physical contest but it only took Altona’s Marcus Sherif three minutes to open the scoring. Skye custodian Jonathan Crook did well to save Sherif’s initial shot but the Altona forward pounced on the rebound to make it 1-0. It was a wake-up call for Skye who responded with increasing pressure, making it a more even contest. Jason Nowakowski thought he had equalised in the 30th minute when he nodded home a Mark O’Connor cross only to be denied by the assistant referee’s flag. Altona was reduced to 10 men in the 39th minute when Sefgi Murat was red carded following an off-the-ball incident. But Sherif added a second after he ran onto a long through ball and slotted it past the advancing Crook. Skye’s misery was compounded when Khor Gatluak was given his marching orders in the 69th minute for a second bookable offence. A highly contentious decision by referee Dimitrios Charaktis changed the course of Saturday’s Centenary Park cup tie between Peninsula Strikers and

State 1 opponent South Springvale. Strikers had gone into the contest without suspended duo Raphael Stultz and Aziz Bayeh and injured right back Scott Buchanan but two goals in the opening half-hour from Langwarrin recruit Michael Turner had the home team in control. Turner’s second goal in the 26th minute was a gem, a stunning first time volley into the top corner from just inside the area and Turner was still describing the strike the following day. It took South Springvale until the 85th minute to hit back with a goal from Sajad Mohammadi but substitute Nathan Fenech’s 89th minute equaliser was met with disbelief from Strikers’ fans. “Danny Brooks was felled inside our area and everyone stopped waiting for the free kick but one of their guys just kicked the ball across goal in frustration and another one of their players put it in and the referee awarded a goal,” said Strikers’ gaffer Craig Lewis. “Players from their dugout ran onto the pitch when they scored and none of them were booked but when I asked the referee to explain why he didn’t give us the blatant free kick he sent me off the bench. “Even South Springvale’s coaching staff and some of their committee came up to me after the game and told me we were robbed. “Our players were outstanding and they didn’t deserve what they got.” Substitute Marcelo Arapis scored four minutes into extra time and a second controversial goal by Fenech in the 119th minute rounded off the 4-2 scoreline. Seaford United was thrashed 8-1 by visitor Essendon United in their FFA Cup clash at North Seaford Reserve on Saturday. The goalfest got under way in the 7th minute and ended in the 90th minute leaving the home side to trudge despondently off the pitch at game’s end. Dylan Waugh’s header in the 62nd minute was Seaford’s sole response as Peter Modaferri (two goals), Mateusz Kowalski (two), Julien Cannizzaro, Christian Bellomo, Andrew Imvriotis and Sofiane Soufi all got on the scoresheet. Rosebud Heart travelled to Paisley Park on Saturday for its cup clash with State 1 North-West side Altona East Phoenix and although it lost 2-1 there were many positive aspects to its performance. “When you see a State 1 side wasting time against a State 4 side you know you’ve done well,” said Heart boss Scott Morrison. Heart was without injured trio Simon O’Donnell, Dave Greening and Carlo Cardoso and captain Daniel

Hodge limped off after 20 minutes with a corked thigh. Two goals in the second half to former Yarraville and St Albans striker Goran Jozeljic gave Phoenix a comfortable buffer but Blake Hicks chipped the Phoenix keeper from 25 metres in the 82nd minute to reduce the arrears. A stunning fingertip save by the Phoenix custodian in the 92nd minute denied Cory Osorio and stopped the contest from going into extra time. At Lawton Park on Sunday home team Langwarrin eased to a 5-1 cup win over State 4 West outfit North Melbourne Athletic. Langwarrin’s scorers were Connor Belger (2), Aaran Currie, Nabil Mozaffaruddin and Alex Metcalfe. Substitute Chris Begg got a late consolation for the visitors. It took until the 41st minute for Langy keeper Robbie Acs to be forced into a save and seconds after guiding a looping header onto the bar and over he was diving and gathering down low at his near post following a firmly hit shot from 15 metres. Acs was more active in the second half but Langy continued to dominate possession and maintain its interpassing style. A major blow for Langy was the loss of central defender Kieron Kenny who was helped off after just 12 minutes with a quadriceps strain that could force him to miss the first two games of the league season. His usual partner at the back, Andy McIntyre, was recovering from a bacterial infection so veteran Boris Ovcin played in a central defensive role. Disgruntled Langy midfielder Sam Scott is expected to sign for State 1 South-East rival Clifton Hill which should spice up an already tasty rivalry when the two sides clash this season. Meanwhile Frankston Pines and Southern United are in talks which could result in Southern using Monterey Reserve as a training base. Pines could have some major infrastructure news shortly and the following friendly matches at Monterey Reserve have been confirmed: Tuesday 14 March, Pines v Ashburton at 7pm; Saturday 18 March, Pines v Riversdale at 3pm. Baxter defeated Healesville 3-2 in a friendly at Baxter Park on Saturday. Baxter featured Liam Tinsley, a 30-year-old former Clifton Hill midfielder and 17-year-old striker Travis Ernsdoerfer from Bentleigh Greens. Tinsley was impressive in the first half while Ernsdoerfer scored Baxter’s third goal. The club is keen to sign both players. Preseason friendly results: Frankston Pines 2 Heidelberg Stars 2, Baxter 3 Healesville 2.

Country club swings behind blind golf championships

12341742-DJ10-17

By Ben Triandafillou THE Rosebud Country Club will proudly host the Victorian Blind Golf Championships for the 27th consecutive year. The 36-hole stableford event will be played over two days beginning on Thursday 16 March and carrying over to Friday 17 March. The Rosebud Country Club has supported the event since 1990 and with the partnership of Blind Golf Victoria, the championship has grown significantly with 20 golfers from across Australia taking part in this year’s event. Blind Golf Victoria president, Doug Sloan, said the event wouldn’t be what it is today without the help of the Rosebud Country Club. “They’re just phenomenal. They

assist us with finding caddies and help us throughout the day. The course is very user friendly and they really make us feel welcome. It’s not just the matter of golf; it’s the matter of socialising and sitting down, talking about your game. We’ve achieved a lot since we have been down at Rosebud Country Club,” Sloan said. Blind golf is divided into three categories, B1, B2 and B3 depending on the player’s vision capabilities, with B1 players being totally blind. The golfers get assistance from their coaches and caddies to line up the ball and are given a guide on where they should be hitting. Rosebud Country Club general manager, Danny McGrath, said that the Rosebud Country Club was honored to play host to the

championships each year and be a part of such an inspiring event. “With the assistance of their coaches, totally blind and visually impaired golfers are able to enjoy the key benefits of golf – friendship, exercise and the thrill of hitting a great shot. Most people will think it is essential to have good eyesight to play golf but this event clearly shows that this is not true. Golf is a sport which can be played by anyone regardless of age, gender, ability or disability. Many of us would be in awe of how well the golfers can hit the ball with limited to no vision,” McGrath said. The championship is a truly unique event and is free for the public to spectate. The Rosebud Country Club can’t wait to get the Victorian Blind Golf Championships underway.

Big start to year for Rye boxer Stephen Taylor steve@mpnews.com.au RYE boxer Jayde Mitchell has been awarded one of the biggest wins of his career. The super middleweight was named 2016 Australian Boxer of the Year at the annual Australian Boxing Hall Of Fame induction gala, Saturday 4 March. A cavalcade of Australia’s boxing royalty attended the function at the Pullman on the Park, Melbourne. “I'm such a huge fan of the sport of boxing,” Mitchell, 31, said later. “It feels like only yesterday my father (Len) was taking me to these special nights and I'd be in awe of all of the past champions and legends in the room. “So, you can imagine the thrill it gave me to stand up in front of a room filled with my heroes and to be presented Fighter of the Year by Jeff Fenech. “To be nominated alongside such great fighters as world champ power house Zac Dunn, arguably the best fighter in Oz at the moment Jeff Horn, undoubtedly the best

Female fighter and one Australia’s most entertaining fighters Shannon O'Connell, and future super stars and good friends Team Moloney was praise enough.” Mitchell said Australia had too many talented fighters right now to mention. “I believe this [win] is relative to where I’m at in my career and the fights we took last year and how busy we were,” he said. “It’s made me reflect on the year that was: six fights for six wins, picking up three regional titles, and defending a regional title against a legend. “[My] biggest achievement was going to Japan to lift the WBC OPBF title from then champion Shintaro Matsumoto and bringing it back home to Australia. “I’m truly living my dream and will continue to work hard and ride this dream as far as I possibly can. Having said that, none of this is possible without my sponsors who play a huge part and I’m forever grateful.” Mitchell will fight Les Sherrington at Punches On The Park 3, Melbourne Park Function Centre, Saturday 18 March.
