It’s the turn of the three centuries at Balnarring THERE must be something in the water at Balnarring, with three former neighbours all celebrating their 100plus birthdays this year at a Shoreham aged care centre. On Saturday, Beryl Sheedy blew out the candles for her 104th birthday, just months after her former Balnarring neighbour Elsie Wishart also turned 104. The pair share the same aged care centre with another of their former Balnarring neighbours, Merle Chaman, who turns 100 this year. Mrs Sheedy said her secret to longevity was to have a glass of white wine with dinner every night. “I used to say having a chocolate every night, but I had to give that away,” she joked. Mrs Sheedy enjoyed celebrating on Saturday with 50 family and friends, including three of her children aged 70-plus and most of her 31 grandchildren. Celebrating life: Beryl Sheedy, centre, celebrates her 104th birthday with her neighbours, Merle Chapman, left, and Elsie Wishart and sons Bernard and Barry. Picture: Gary Sissons

‘Secret deal’ for toxic plan - MP Keith Platt keith@mpnews.com.au A WARNING has been issued that plans to create liquid hydrogen from brown coal in the Latrobe Valley could ultimately lead to a polluting industry being established in Western Port. Hastings MP Neale Burgess says Kawasaki Heavy Industries has signed a “secret deal” with the state government that could lead to “long coal trains or a

coal slurry pipe bringing huge amounts of coal to Hastings, building of a huge coal gasification plant at Hastings and the produced hydrogen being shipped through Western Port”. Mr Burgess was last Thursday turned away from a meeting between the Port of Hastings Development Authority and Kawasaki executives. Afterwards, in an email, the authority’s chief financial officer Mark O’Donnell said he had been advised “that if a member for parliament is

seeking any information in relation to the Port of Hastings Development Authority they should direct their inquiry to the Minister for Ports [Luke Donnellan]”. Flinders MP Greg Hunt said he was “utterly opposed” to Western Port being used as a coal port “and I have made it clear that Crib Point should not be reindustrialised for hydrogen or bitumen”. Mr Hunt said he knew of discussions between the state and Kawasaki

y a D y r Eve R O F E U L VA Every

but “as far as I am aware, at this stage no decisions have been made as to the port they will use”. It is understood Kawasaki is building a ship to transport liquid hydrogen which would initially be produced at a pilot plant in the Latrobe Valley. If proved viable, a much larger plant would be built at Hastings. Environmentalists argue that the process adds to Australia’s carbon emissions while Japan gets the benefit of a much cleaner fuel.

The state government is known to be looking for ways of providing jobs in the Latrobe Valley which is about to be hit by the closer of the Hazelwood power plant. Mr Burgess said documents obtained under freedom of information “confirmed that the Andrews government is actively pushing the use of Western Port for toxic and unwanted substances, including coal and urea”.

Distribution cost cuts may lead to cheaper gas bills Stephen Taylor steve@mpnews.com.au GAS prices for Mornington Peninsula households are likely to drop between $40 and $185 a year from next year as network charges fall 11 per cent. This surprising revelation comes as most gas consumers fear increases as a result of soaring exports from the North-West Shelf and Galilee Basin projects in Western Australia and Queensland. But, for about 650,000 households and small businesses in Victoria and around Albury, NSW – including 150,000-180,000 on the peninsula and in Gippsland – the reverse is expected to be the case. This follows Australian Gas Networks (AGN) submitting to the Australian Energy Regulator its final plan for a Victoria and Albury access arrangement for the five years from 1 January 2018. The company is one of Australia’s leading natural gas distribution businesses, owning the infrastructure and pipes through which gas is supplied to households by retailers such as AGL and Energy Australia. Its distribution charges make up about one third of the average domestic retail gas bill.

AGN chief operating officer Andrew Staniford said the AGN plan proposed an 11 per cent cut in gas distribution charges from the beginning of next year. He said the charges made up about a third of the average residential bill in Victoria. The company estimates the flow-on effect of its cuts will slash household gas bills by $40$185 annually “assuming other components of the bill do not change”. Mr Staniford said the cost cuts were based on lower interest rate charges which the company had managed to fix over a five-year period. These come into effect when the regulator approves the company’s final plan next month, he said. “Our proposed reduction in the network charges will take some of the pressure off household and small business gas bills,” he said. “The price drop will improve the affordability of natural gas for our new and existing customers. “We are very conscious that the cost of living – including utility bills – is a major concern for many people.” The energy regulator will hold a public forum on AGN’s final plan on 1 February before handing down its draft decision in June. AGN will then have an opportunity to submit a revised final plan before the regulator releases its final decision on 30 November.

Lantern animation: Her father might be an acting minister, but for Asha Dalidakis the most entertaining chracter at Rosebud on Friday was Shrek, in town to publicise April’s Lights exhibition. Picture: Yanni

Light attraction to dream about ROSEBUD will host an international lighting extravaganza featuring some of the most loveable characters from Dreamwork’s animation in an Australian-first exhibition. Around 100, huge illuminated figures from the movies Shrek, Kung Fu Panda, How to Train Your Dragon and Madagascar will come to life and light up the Rosebud foreshore in April. Lights by DreamWorks is an interactive, walkthrough experience that will run for 30 days and is expected to attract more than 300,000 visitors. Modelled on the traditional Chinese Lantern Festival, Lights by DreamWorks also features a variety of scenographic pieces, LED furnishings, themed technology and learning zones, an immer-

sive cinema experience and animatronic dragons. The exhibition, previously only seen in Chile and London, was previewed in Rosebud on Friday by acting Tourism and Major Events Minister Philip Dalidakis. Mr Dalidakis said the launch at Rosebud was “a great opportunity for visitors to explore one of Victoria’s seaside regional towns”. DreamWorks consumer products country director Jo Pascoe said it was exciting to bring the lantern experience to Australia for the first time. “We’re looking forward to seeing eyes young and old light up when they experience our large scale illuminated characters for the very first time in such a beautiful part of Victoria.”

Car with history: Apart from having a trailblazing design of its own, this Cord sedan, pictured here with actor John Wood, was once owned by aviator Amelia Earhart, who disappeared in 1937 while attempting to fly around the world.

Earhart’s car lands at Mornington A CAR given to pioneering women aviator Amelia Earhart will be in Mornington next month as part of the RACV Great Australian Rally. The front wheel drive supercharged Cord was a present from Earhart’s husband, George Putnam, who had it painted in her favourite colour, “Eleanor blue”, named after her friend Eleanor Roosevelt, the wife of the long serving United States’ president, Franklin D Roosevelt. The Cord’s owner, Terry Dowel of Beaconsfield, will exhibit his car at the rally which raises money for research by the Peter MacCallum

Cancer Centre. Earhart was the first woman to fly across the Atlantic Ocean - from Canada to Wales - as a crew member in 1928 and in 1932 she was the first woman pilot to fly solo across the same ocean, in a record of 15 hours 18 minutes. A successful author, Earhart’s ambition was to be the first woman to fly solo around the world, and on 1 June 1937 she set out to fly the longest route, around the equator – 45,000 kilometres. One month later on 2 July, after covering 39,000 kilometres, the

40-year-old pilot’s Lockheed 10 Electra disappeared over the Pacific after leaving Lae, in Papua-New Guinea, en route to Hawaii via Howland Island, the second last leg of the journey. No trace of her aircraft has ever been found. Mornington Racecourse will open to the public from 10am to 4pm on Sunday 5 February. Food and wine will be available, along with other attractions. Adults $10; children under 14 are free. Entry fees are donated to Peter MacCallum Cancer Centre for cancer research. Details greataustralianrally. com.au online.

Shark alert ends surf day

Remains found HUMAN remains were found in bushland off Diamond Bay Road, Sorrento, on Friday. Homicide Squad detectives said they formed part of an “ongoing investigation” and would not comment further. Police media officer Belinda Batty said the police Mounted Branch, Operations Response Unit and SES were also involved in the investigation. She said the remains would be forensically examined. The age of the remains or if theyr are those of a male or female are not known at this stage. Television news film showed police were searching in a lightly timbered area.

Stephen Taylor steve@mpnews.com.au A DAY of fun in the water at Point Leo for up to 150 people with disabilities was called off on Saturday because of sharks. It was feared sharks would be attracted to the beach by a rotting whale carcass washed up on the beach at nearby Shoreham on Wednesday. The committee of the Disabled Surfers Association Mornington Peninsula changed the year’s first event from surfing to a barbecue – although the shark threat did not deter surfers enjoying the first swell in Western Port since the New Year. DSA Mornington Peninsula president Ashley Gardner said the event’s cancellation followed consultation with members of the committee, local shark expert Kent Stannard (Tag for Life), as well as a marine biologist and Point Leo Foreshore reserve regarding removal of whale carcass. Earlier in the week the DSA had feared large waves would endanger the swimmers. Instead, on Saturday 18 would-be surfers and 35 volunteers enjoyed a barbecue and games on the grass near Point Leo Lifesaving Club. The poor condition of the juvenile humpback meant it was not possible to determine its cause of death, but the presence of three orcas – killer whales – off Seal Rocks the previous may have been a factor. Department of Environment, Land, Water and Planning officers were on site Thursday assessing their options

of removing the carcass, such as carrying it off the beach or burying it. They decided on Friday to use a front-end loader to bury the nine-metre carcass above the high-tide mark. DELWP incident controller Shane Van Den Born said the whale had been in the water “several weeks” and its missing tail was evidence of shark bites. “We were hoping the hot spell would break down the body or that a high tide would wash it out to sea, but it looks like we will have to bury it.”

He said rocks and difficult access made it impractical to carry the carcass up off the beach. DELWP communications manager Sally Bateman said whales and their remains were protected and must not be disturbed or removed without authorisation. The department is the responsible agency for responding to whale and dolphin strandings. “We have the trained and experienced staff, equipment and plans to respond to these types of events, which occur occasionally along our coastline, in a safe

and coordinated way,” she said. Anyone seeing a shark or a swimmer in danger should call 000 or notify lifesavers if at a patrolled beach. Swimmers are advised not to swim in places where human or animal waste enters the water, and not to remain in the water with bleeding wounds. They should keep away from large schools of fish, seals or other wildlife. The latest sighting information is on the VicEmergency website and app. For information on staying safe around sharks visit lsv.com.au/shark-safety.

UP to four thieves forced the door of the Flinders general store to steal a quantity of cash, 3.25am, Thursday 12 January. The men, wearing dark clothing, were seen driving off in a darkcoloured car, perhaps a Toyota, from the Cook St store.

Alcohol stolen BEER and champagne valued at $300 was stolen from a Mornington house last week. Detective Senior Sergeant Alan Paxton, of Mornington Peninsula CIU, said the alcohol was stolen from the garage of the Herbert St house overnight, Wednesday 11 January.

Quiet for now: The Port of Hastings seems quiet, with few ships arriving each week. But the skyline and number of ships may change dramatically if plans to make hydrogen from brown coal proceed.

Plans for ‘toxic’ plant at Hastings Continued from Page 1 The government - while awaiting recommendations from Infrastructure Victoria on where Victoria’s next container port should be located – has previously stated the Port of Hastings should be used as a “bulk port�. Previous Labor government’s had promoted Western Port as the preferred site for a container port, but the Andrews government has indicated its best option as being Bay West, in Port Phillip north of Geelong. Mr Burgess said the state government “has again not even seen fit to consult with this community; instead deciding to keep its dirty deal a secret�. “Locals will remember the long and ugly fight to stop the Bracks and Brumby Labor governments from al-

lowing a bitumen depot to be built on the foreshore at Crib Point, with then Planning Minister Justin Madden personally intervening to give it the goahead.� After the Coalition came to power in 2010 Mr Burgess (Liberal) said he had had “the honour and satisfaction of making the phone call to tell the proponents of the bitumen plant that they no longer had permission to build in Crib Point�. “The Coalition supports the exploration of uses for our valuable brown coal deposits and although there is a lot of work to be done to make it viable, its conversion to hydrogen is one of those potential uses,� he said. “However, the Coalition was clear while in government and has con-

firmed in opposition, that Western Port is the location of Victoria’s second container port and that it would not be used for any of the toxic purposes the Labor Party had previously earmarked it for, including coal, urea and bitumen. “Western Port is not the appropriate place to ship coal to, whether via long coal trains, slurry pipe or any other means, or to develop a huge gasification plant for turning that coal into hydrogen. Mr Burgess said the government should explain its plans at a public meeting “so that this community can have a say in what we want for our future and the future of our children�. “We will not just sit back in silence and watch Labor turn Western Port into a toxic dump.�

TWO men arrested over the weekend face charges over multiple robberies – including at the IGA liquor store in Lochiel Av, Mt Martha, overnight on 28 November, where a quantity of cigarettes was stolen. The 32-year-old Preston man and a 32-year-old Epping man also face charges relating to five other burglaries as part of an operation investigating a series of commercial burglaries across Melbourne. They were arrested by the Eastern Region Crime Squad on Mendip Rd, Reservoir, on Sunday. Charges include aggravated burglary, burglary, theft, theft of motor vehicle, criminal damage by fire and handle stolen goods. Other burglaries occurred at Wills St, Kew, on 9 January, Botanic Drive, Kew, on 13 January, Barton St, Surrey Hills, on 13 January, Mitcham Rd, Mitcham, on 14 January and Raleigh Rd, Maribyrnong, on 14 January. The men have also been charged over two alleged car thefts in Roxburgh Park and Kew. The men were remanded to appear at Melbourne Magistrate’s Court at a date to be fixed. Their arrests follow a series of commercial burglaries at service stations, supermarkets and liquor stores where cigarettes were stolen, dating back to November, as well as recent residential burglaries. Inquiries are also pending in relation to a number of other burglary and

theft of motor vehicle offences dating back to 21 October. Detective Senior Sergeant Matt Baynes said the arrests were a great result and showed police are strongly focused on addressing these crimes. “Police will continue to identify, target, arrest and charge those people who engage in this type of offending, especially those who are recidivist offenders,� he said. “The same goes for those people who are willing to receive and sell stolen property, increasing the impact of these crimes on the community. “The offending we’re seeing is not limited to just one part of Melbourne and investigators are also keen to speak to anyone who has knowledge of these types of offences taking place in their local area.� Anyone with information is urged to call Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000.

Cliff attraction turns messy Stephen Taylor steve@mpnews.com.au THE overwhelming stench of urine and cigarettes greeted Mt Martha resident Peta Donaldson and her eightyear-old daughter when they visited the Pillars after a heatwave weekend’s crush of young visitors had departed. “The weather was calm, with not a breath of wind, yet the Pillars literally smelt like a hideous concoction of a public toilet and an oversized filthy ashtray,� she said last week. “Thousands of cigarettes were left on the cliff. Wafts of urine hit us in the face as we climbed the coastline. So strong was the stench my daughter dry wretched – not ideal for a supposedly idyllic natural wonder for all to enjoy. “It is blatant. There is no respect, no regard, no care, no love.� Ms Donaldson, her husband Scott and neighbour Ben Davey collected 19 bags of rubbish over two hours on Monday left behind by crowds of visitors to the site. “It was strewn along nearby streets within walking distance of the Pillars and on the Pillars themselves,� she said. “We were shocked, disgusted, angered, bewildered and dismayed by the amount of rubbish left behind. The litter included glass and plastic bottles, thousands of cigarette butts, aluminium cans, towels, underwear, clothes, thongs, sanitary pads, food wrappers/take away containers, Coke bottle full of urine, bags of litter collected but left behind, and pizza boxes. “Not only were we overwhelmed by

Clean-up time: While the Pillars provides a great place for socialising and rock jumping or diving, its rock crevices have also become a dumping ground for cigarette butts and other rubbish. Picture: Yanni (main) and supplied

the amount of rubbish, but we discovered that the Pillars has now been graffitied by vandals,� Ms Donaldson said. “Again, this simply reiterates several issues that are clearly not being addressed by council.� Ben Davey, of Deakin Drive, said he had been threatened by a group of young men parked in his street after they saw him speaking with police. “I felt intimidated,� he said. “They said they know where I live and they’d be back.� He said cars were blocking driveways – including 27 cars parked in his street on Thursday – and actions being

taken by the shire were “pushing the problem into local streets�. “On the one hand the council says it is making the area safer for visits by installing bollards and reducing speed limits, but there are no bins, no toilets, signs or pathways saying where the Pillars are,� he said. “Nothing has improved; it’s only got worse for residents with the visitors doing burn-outs, causing dust and damage – and, of course – the council is nowhere to be seen.� Some of the young people were aggressive and drunk and urinated in the streets, he said. “There’s a demo-

graphic difference – they are not from Mt Martha and they have no respect.� Mr Davey said a $70 parking fine wasn’t too daunting when divided among four people in the one car – it’s similar to city parking fees. Ms Donaldson said signs banning alcohol were “not working�. “Did the rangers visiting the area yesterday report anyone for littering, drinking, illegal parking, or urinating in public? What is happening to reinforce the new laws?� Mornington Peninsula’s acting chief operating officer Niall McDonagh said shire officers “proactively patrolled the

area twice or three times every day�. “With the warmer weather, patrols are ramped up and can be conducted up to eight times in a day,� he said. “The southern officers also patrol this area on their way back to Mornington.� Mr McDonagh said officers enforced ‘No Stopping’ infringements in surrounding streets, with police enforcing alcohol breaches. “Police have been made aware of this issue and enforcement of the Esplanade is conducted by them. “Police also patrol the surrounding residential streets where ‘No Standing’ rules apply. They also enforce [rules against] parking on nature strips and both the police and parking officers issue penalty infringement notices. “The shire’s service providers do regular litter patrols along the road edge and surrounding streets. When required we also collect rubbish on the cliff top.� Mr McDonagh would not say if any infringement notices had been issued. Mornington Police Acting Sergeant Sarah Blackmore said police “obviously maintained a presence� at the Pillars on busy beach days. “Patrols of the area are always raised in briefings at the start of our shifts,� she said. “It helps if residents report bad behaviour so that we know what’s happening. Residents should call 000 to alert police because we can’t be everywhere at once. “If we have the resources, we will be there.�

Groups lining up to stop land sales Liz Bell liz@mpnews.com.au PLANS to fast track the rezoning and sale of Melbourne Water-owned land in Rosebud has infuriated residents and raised fears that the land grab will impact the future of Mt Eliza land that is now a haven for wildlife. The water authority has moved to rezone for development four of its “surplus” Melbourne sites, including the 5.6 hectare site in Jetty Rd, Rosebud, under the state government's Fast Track Government Land Service. The land service was established in 2015 to correct planning scheme “anomalies” and provide for the fasttracked rezoning of “surplus” government land. Residents are angry that Mornington Peninsula Shire Council missed out on an opportunity around 12 months ago to buy the site at a 30 per cent discounted rate, because council officer Alison Leighton said it did not fit in with council’s long-term plans. When rezoned, the land - which is divided into four separate parcels and is currently used as recreational space by residents - is expected to be worth about $22 million. Melbourne Water has been reported as saying it merely operated under the

terms of references set by Planning Minister Richard Wynne, and had a “duty” to regularly review land holdings not crucial to its operation. Doris Campbell, who lives near the Rosebud land, said the council had made a “huge error of judgement” by not buying the land, with Rosebud facing a shortfall in open space. Ms Campbell said residents saw the fast-tracking of the rezoning as “a joke”. There was only one consultation meeting held in Dromana before the land was proposed for sale. Rosebud resident of 16 years, Stuart Grant, said people felt “violated” when they found out about the rezoning, as the land was essential community space. “We will do whatever we can to stop this land being lost to the community,” he said. An independent advisory committee will hear public submissions in Somerville at a date to be announced in February, but Ms Campbell said she believed the rezoning was “a done deal”. Anti-development protesters fear Melbourne Water’s land sell-off could impact the fate of a more than impact hectares of pristine land in Kunyung Rd, Mt Eliza, which South East Water wants to rezone for development. Planning Backlash president Mary Drost said the land sell offs were “dis-

graceful” and wants Mr Wynne to intervene. “We are appealing to the planning minister to say no to yet more open space being covered with concrete and glass and thousands more people,” she said. “Does the government want to pack us all into high rise everywhere, all the trees gone and no open space anywhere?” Ms Drost said the Mt Eliza land was an important area for wildlife. “If this keeps going we will have no wildlife left, which would be a tragedy. Stop selling off land.” Steve Karakitsos, the president of environment group South Eastern Centre for Sustainability, said the behaviour of the state-owned water authorities showed a lack of integrity. “It boils down to governmental bodies seeking to sell off surplus land that has become integral to the communities in which they are situated,” he said. Mr Karakitsos said the decommissioned reservoir in Mt Eliza posed a challenge of a different nature to the Rosebud land because of its importance for wildlife, as supported by ecological reports by ecologist Malcolm Legg and backed by zoologist Hans Bruner and botanist Dr Jeff Yugovic.

Run for hospital SHARPY’S Beer Run organisers are hoping to double the number of entrants than ran in last year’s inaugural event which attracted 350 runners. Starting and finishing at Main Ridge, the event over 21 and 10 kilometres on Saturday 18 March supports The Bays Hospital through entrance fees and donations. The runners pass through Arthurs Seat state park. A 200-metre Pints for Prostates Dash raises money for the hospital’s prostate nurse services.

SMOKING rates in Frankston and on the Mornington Peninsula are significantly higher than the state average – statistics Peninsula Health and local schools are out to improve. “Most people in our community would agree that no one wants their kids to smoke,” Kristen Young, health promotion practitioner at Peninsula Health, said. “But, for an issue with so much support, the score card on tobacco use within our local community is quite dismal.” The service is collaborating with Mornington Peninsula Shire youth services and Frankton Mornington Peninsula Primary Care Partnership to create the Smokescreen Project. It was launched last year at Mornington Park Primary School, Balcombe Grammar and Advance Community College. Over five interactive sessions, students learned stop motion video production techniques and explored the implications of smoking. “We were lucky to engage talented artist Brett Cardwell, from Cardytoons, who worked with the students to storyboard their ideas, develop characters for the clips and learn stop motion animation techniques for their Smokescreen clips,” Ms Young said. “It was a great project and the kids loved it,” Mornington Park Primary School teacher Anna Vevers said. “It was a fantastic learning experience and, if there is an opportunity for the grade sixers next year to be involved, I know that we would be really keen.” Four of the short video clips developed through the Smokescreen Project will be screened at the Peninsula Short Film Festival, 3-5 February. Peninsula Health is seeking funding to continue the Smokescreen Project in 2017. Those interested in being involved should call Ms Young on 9788 1506.

Butt out, Fred: Advance Community College, Rosebud, student Elisha Dessmann was on the team creating the stop-motion anti-smoking animated clip.

They are at 8pm, Friday 20 January, and then every first Friday of each month at the purpose built observatory next to the Briars Outdoor Ed Camp, 450 Nepean Hwy, Mt Martha. Group bookings are available on- or off-site, said Dr Sky Murphy of the not-for-profit society. See mpas.asn.au or call 0419 253 252 for details.

Fight to save land Continued from Page 5 “We believe that in all instances every site should be formally assessed on their own merits, inclusive of their given social and natural attributes, alongside the public’s input to have the respective sites’ preservation appropriately considered.� South East Water spokesman Rupert Posner said the future of the Kunyung Rd land - deemed surplus to operational requirements - was still being decided. “I’ve no idea what Melbourne Water is doing in relation to its sites - you’ll have to ask them,� he replied when asked if Melbourne Water’s land selloff had repercussions for the Mt Eliza site. Mornington MP David Morris last year called on SEW to withdraw its plans and transfer the land to Mornington Peninsula Shire for a nominal amount. The council has indicated it will discuss the site’s future in the “early New Year�, but has not yet set a date.

Sealed with a selfie: Arcto the seal seems unperturbed by the attention he’s receiving while holidaying at Dromana. The seal has become a favourite with photographers. Picture: Gary Sissons

Arcto returns for his summer break SPLENDID scenery, soft sand, lapping water and – mostly – friendly locals have made Dromana an ideal regular holiday destination for Arcto. The Australian fur seal, aged about seven, is back for perhaps his fourth annual visit to the foreshore. He uses it as a base to search for fish and crustaceans, often at night, and returns in the early morning to rest. Curious onlookers are being urged to stay

away as the 250kg adult bull, like all seals, is protected under the Wildlife Act. Authorised officer Abbey Smith, of the Department of Environment, Land, Water and Planning, said sightseers should stay at least 30 metres clear, with dogs kept 50 metres away and preferably on a leash. She said it was also an offence to feed, offer food or touch a seal without authorisation.

DELWP and the AGL maritime response unit will monitor Arcto’s situation and allow him all the time he needs to get back into the swim of things. Details: visit delwp.vic.gov.au or call 136 186. To report sick, injured or distressed marine wildlife call the AGL Marine Response Unit on 0447 158 676. Steve Taylor

NEWS DESK Policeman honoured A MEMORIAL service next month will dedicate Frankston Hospital’s new operating theatre to former police constable Phillip Gordon Fleming. Constable Fleming was an observer in a police divisional van travelling along the Boulevard, Kew, in February 1971, when it ran off the road, crashed through a fence and plunged down an embankment. He received massive head injuries and died instantly. The ceremony at 10am, Friday 17 February, will be held with full police honours in the presence of Chief Commissioner Graham Ashton. Victoria Police Blue Ribbon Foundation Peninsula Branch president Darryl Nation said the dedication will be held at the City of Frankston Bowling Club, corner of William and Yuille streets, Frankston.

Vinnies and staff celebrate Mary’s staying power VOLUNTEERS at Vinnies Mornington gathered for a special event last month: a celebration of Mary Cowan’s 50 years’ service to the charity organisation and her impending 90th birthday. Store manager Megan Box said Ms Cowan – who sorts and prices the store’s bric-a-brac section – had helped out at the 184 Main St store for 12 years. She moved to Mornington from South Australia where she manned the counter at

Vinnies’ Cambelltown store for 38 years. Ms Cowan said she “thoroughly enjoyed working at the store with such a good group of people”. Ms Box described her as a “valuable worker”. “She had a stroke last year but was back in the store after two months.” The store opens 9am-5pm every day.

Planning for planning decisions is a good idea The Mornington Peninsula is under voracious attack from developers and investors buying up housing and land for sub divisions and re zoning. They are overloading Mornington Peninsula Shire Council with planning applications, knowing full well that they will not be thoroughly investigated by shire officers within the allotted time. Unless the shire makes a deliberation on any planning application within 60 days developers are entitled to take action at VCAT (Victorian Civil Administrative Tribunal. This has happened many times in 2016 at great cost to the shire, residents and ratepayers. Judging by current record real estate sales on the peninsula, there are many more of these developments to come in 2017. We are fast becoming another Melbourne suburb. At the recent council elections, the community elected councillors on their promises of preserving neighbourhood character and the conservation of the natural systems and biodiversity in residential and green wedge zones. Cr David Gill’s motion to have council officers look at forming a planning committee in order that councillors be briefed on planning applications and future planning scheme amendments before they are debated at public meetings, is common sense and to be commended (“Plan for planning committee”, The News 20/12/16). The shire urgently needs to update and define its green wedge and planning schemes involving residential subdivision. It is a given that you and your community be properly protected. Doris Campbell, president Mornington Peninsula Ratepayers and Residents Association

Support for committee I fully support Cr David Gill’s call for reintroduction of the Developments Assessment Committee to give Mornington Peninsula Shire Council and the community an opportunity to “ have their say” on planning Applications (“Plan for planning committee”, The News 20/12/16). This vital committee should not have been disbanded by council as trying to deal with planning applications along with other business, at ordinary meetings of council is a serious mistake. An example I witnessed at a community council meeting held at Hastings last year highlighted this when the matter of the redevelopment of the Sorrento Hotel was dealt with. Objectors were required to travel from Sorrento to Hastings, did not have the opportunity to personally raise their concerns with council, and saw the matter rushed through out of pure expediency. We all enjoy the benefits of many years of good planning control on the peninsula reaching back into the 1970s with establishment of the Western Port Regional Planning Authority. Those outcomes have been achieved by rigorous control and, above all, consultation. Those of us who have lived on the peninsula

over that time well remember the strong community representation which came to the fore the moment a major development was proposed or in many cases even just suggested. It is grossly unfair on all parties, applicants, objectors, councillors and shire officers, to not be able to meet on a separate occasion, discuss openly and fully consider all relevant aspects of a planning application, free from the time restricted pressures of an ordinary council meeting. I sincerely trust the newly elected council will support Cr Gill in his efforts to have the committee reinstated. Brian L Stahl, Hastings

Bikes a problem The [Mornington Peninsula] shire’s infrastructure manager states bollards and flashing signs were placed along the Esplanade [at Mt Martha] to prevent illegal parking and assist in pedestrian movement (“New limits and lanes for safety”, The News 10/1/17). The biggest problem is bike traffic along the Esplanade. With double lines along most of the Esplanade it is impossible to pass a bike rider without having to cross double lines. It causes a bank up of traffic and, often through frustration, motorists having to take unnecessary risks to pass cyclists. In times of heavy usage over the summer months, cyclists should be re-directed along alternative routes, thus easing the congestion along this section of road. John Tingiri, Mornington

Pause to think Please, please, please people, stop walking your dogs on hot pavements. I can’t believe the number of otherwise responsible pet owners (at least one hopes they’re normally responsible) who force their poor little pooches to walk on blazing hot footpaths in summer. The owners are fine; they’ve got shoes on. May I suggest if you’re thinking of taking Fido out for a lunchtime stroll you remove your shoes first and try walking on that hot cement? Unless you’re both cruel and sadistic I suspect you’ll speedily change your mind about that midday walk that burns the paws of your pet and take them out at a more reasonable time. Heather Kennedy, Seaford

Danger for dogs As temperatures soar and reach new records all over the country, please remember that dogs should never be left in parked vehicles — which can become death traps in a matter of minutes. Even on a mild, 25-degree day, the temperature inside a car parked in the shade can soar to between 37 and 50 degrees in minutes; on a 30-degree day, the temperature can reach 70 degrees in less than 10 minutes. Leaving the windows cracked (or even half-

way down) and/or leaving water in the vehicle will not keep animals comfortable or safe. With only hot air to breathe dogs can succumb to heatstroke in as little as 15 minutes, resulting in brain damage or death. Symptoms include restlessness, excessive thirst, heavy panting, lethargy, lack of appetite and coordination, dark tongue, and vomiting. Please, when it’s warm outside, leave animals at home. If you see a dog left in a car, have the car’s owner paged at nearby stores or call 000 immediately — the dog’s life depends on it. Ashley Fruno, People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA) Australia

Broken rules Of course [Liberal Nepean MP] Martin Dixon MP is supporting thrashing the green wedge on the Mornington Peninsula, that’s what his side of politics stands for (“Expansion applauded” Letters 10/1/17). The fact still remains that Willow Creek [winery] has been allowed to almost double the patron numbers on its undersized lot of land; this is in complete disregard of the green wedge rules. If as Mr Dixon seems to imply, this is good and it becomes the norm to disregard these rules for development on green wedge land, his dream of a tourist-led revitalisation of our peninsulas economy will be very short lived. The very thing we are selling, open space and a green and healthy environment, will soon be a thing of the past if we listen to his advice. The rape of our environment for the quick buck is not what I want for the peninsula. Rupert Steiner, Balnarring Beach

Economic slaves Your article by David Chalke “Peasants are revolting and that’s how they see their leaders” (The News 10/1/17) is so pertinent to life in Australia today. It is refreshing to read a candid, truthful account of the economic and social situation in Australia instead of the usual drivel about jobs and growth, the “new economy” and deficits and surpluses. In 1381 the English peasants revolted against the same problems faced by the Australian peasants of today and beheaded their Lord High Treasurer, which sounds like a good idea to me. I have been of the belief that we are in World War III, not the blood and guts nuclear type of war, but economic warfare to achieve the same results. Australia has already been vanquished, almost all of our industrial might gone; even Victoria’s Hazelwood power station being closed down by foreign owners. Our wealth now largely dependent on supplying iron ore, coal and gas to other countries, all of our manufactured goods coming from other countries. Few jobs here for the peasants, mostly “banana republic” jobs in tourism, agriculture and servicing ourselves. The peasants are being forced into slavery, not ball and chain slaves, but economic slaves, man and wife being put into huge debt for life, with real wages spiralling downwards. Money and economics is everything, the people are nothing - just units of economic resource. Perhaps we need another Great Depression to level things out and start to rebuild this country back to where it was in 1967.

I’m still attracted to the beheading option. Brian A Mitchelson, Mornington

Soccer’s high score I just want to thank Craig MacKenzie for his informative fortnightly Soccer column in The News, it’s great to get all the background stuff on local clubs. As one who doesn’t use Facebook or Twitter I believe that, but for MacKenzie’s column I would have little or no up to date information about soccer (its taken me the best part of half a century to get used to using that word, but I’m getting there) ] here on the Mornington Peninsula. Long may it continue. Best wishes for the coming season and why can’t you guys give us a weekly Soccer column? Chris Mooney, Hastings Editor: Craig MaccKenzie is about to start writing about soccer for The News on a weekly basis.

Visitors depart Only a week or so now until Australia Day, where we say a very fond farewell to the vast majority of our visiting multicultural hordes. As the supply of this excellent newspaper disappears so quickly during January, no doubt our visitors checking (a possible whim?) on properties for sale. Our op shops, as good as any in Australia, are for second hand goods in reasonable condition, including cleaned and/or washed clothing. Do not use them as a dumping ground. We have a tip for the rubbish. Adieux passionnés. Cliff Ellen, Rye

Pension scare Once again we have lies and scare campaigns about pensions getting cut. A mere 10 per cent of pensioners, those wealthy people that [Labor leader] Bill Shorten is so concerned about, are affected by the cuts. Those people have assets (the family home not being included in the calculations) that give them an additional income apart from the pension. I don’t think any fair minded individual would not think it was appropriate that wealthy people get a smaller pension than those who have not been favoured by life’s circumstances. But here we have Bill Shorten crying crocodile tears for his wealthy mates and taking the liberty to call our prime minister [Malcolm Turnbull] a sook over this issue. It’s a shame Bill Shorten hasn’t got the guts to advocate cutting multiple Centrelink payments to Muslim “families”. As far as those unsolicited phone calls that are being received on one’s answering machine, I intend to lodge a formal complaint with my local member. I really think it is time that we set higher standards for politicians to voice their opinion.

MORNINGTON ART SHOW

Seven days of art THE Mornington Art show will run for seven days, including Australia Day, after its opening at 7pm on Thursday 19 January. After the opening the show opens daily from 10 am to 5 pm. The opening night is a social event with food, refreshments and music from the Bakery Jazz Trio. Opening night tickets are available at Farrell’s bookstore or on line at www.morningtonartshow.com.au. During the weekend, BMW Mornington will have the latest vehicle on display with a prize for an art show visitor. More than 800 paintings have been selected in this year’s show in a range of styles and media, including 60 works by Sydney-based artists. Prices range from $150 to $4000. “The quality is excellent and will provide a visual array of original art as if three or four galleries had combined. Artists are local, Victorian and from several Australian states,” organisers and member of Mornington Rotary, John Renowden, said. “Whether people come to the opening night or during the days, the Rotary Club of Mornington organisers are confident they will find it well worth a visit.” Opening night tickets can be bought online from morningtonartshow.com.au, from Farrell’s bookstore, Mornington, or at the door on the night.

Winners of the silent auction will be chosen at the end of the opening night, which starts at 7pm Thursday 19 January at Peninsula Community Theatre, Wilsons Rd, Mornington. Opening night tickets can be bought online from morningtonartshow.com.au, from Farrell’s bookstore, Mornington, or at the door on the night. There is also a lucky door prize. First prize in the raffle being run in conjunction with the art show is a $1500 “garden package” includes electrical or battery pack equipment, a wheelbarrow, a composter, fertilisers and planter pots. Second prize is $1000 worth of men’s or women’s clothing and a $500 “resort gift package” for third. Other prizes include a blue tooth speaker and two fishing rods . The raffle will be drawn at 4pm on Australia Day, 26 January, the final day of the art show.

Variety of works

Auction offers time out THE big ticket items in the silent auction at the opening of this year’s Mornington Art Show are all about taking a break. A $750 package includes dinner during a weekend at the Yarra Valley and the loan of a BMW car for transport. Another item is a $700 voucher for use at an RACV resort for a weekend’s accommodation and breakfasts. Other items include accommodation and breakfast at Brooklands, Mornington, a dinner voucher for Manhattan Restaurant, lunch for two at Licciardos, Mt Eliza, Mornington Peninsula wines, spas, beauty treatments.

THE Bakery Jazz Trio is making a return appearance for the opening night of the 45th Mornington Art Show.

ENTRIES in this year’s Mornington Art Show includes glass works by Roberta Easton, Craig Davy’s “impressionistic” seascapes and Ron Brown’s multi-media works on canvas. Easton has been glassblowing for more than 20 years and says many of her pieces have been inspired by her own paintings. Her glass work includes platters,

vases, plates, paperweights and “animal inspired” shapes. Craig Davy and Ron Brown are the seven-day show’s feature artists. Both are based on the Mornington Peninsula. Award winning Davy is described as having an impressionistic approach to his seascapes while Brown paints in a contemporary style with strong use of colour.

Show judge with ‘creative freedom’ MORNINGTON Art Show judge Julie Goldspink describes herself as a “realist-impressionist water colourist, using wet into wet technique”. She also works in mixed media in which she finds “a creative freedom to experiment with expressive mind”. “The love and magic of creating a new artwork lives in the soul and, in my case, consumes every part of me and every minute I can spare. I hope to be able to enjoy painting and exhibiting for the rest of my life,” Goldspink says. An artist and teacher, Goldspink holds demonstration classes and workshops throughout Australia and is a member of the Australian Watercolour Institute.

Molly’s overseas mission to stop germs BLAIRGOWRIE nursing student Molly Moore is still a year away from qualifying, but the 22-year-old hopes her proactive approach to healthcare will reduce death and disease in third world environments. After going on a study tour to Thailand last year with Deakin University, the former Rosebud Secondary College student decided that one of the simplest ways to prevent illness in poor communities was to teach better hygiene practices. She has now developed a hygiene education program and will go to the Tanzanian township of Arusha with two friends in February to volunteer at the Tengeru district hospital, and deliver the program to local children. “My first trip overseas was to Thailand and I was pretty surprised at the poor levels of hygiene practices and the gap in knowledge about the links to disease,” she said. “Simple hygiene measures such as washing hands regularly can reduce some of the spread of disease, but in some communities they are unaware of the links between hygiene and illness.” By working two jobs while studying, Molly has self-funded her trip to Tanzania, but is now raising $3000 for a Tanzanian orphanage to help out with medical equipment and school supplies. And to help, her boyfriend’s grandmother, Pat Tilley, has donated some handmade quilts which will be sold via a Facebook auction. Molly has a gofundme page at gofundme.com/mjmtanzaniaproject online.

A matter of physique FRANKSTON bodybuilder Kim Parrott has been rewarded for her punishing training regime, frugal diet and persistent pursuit of her training goals. She has just returned from winning the world bodybuilding championships in Canada in November. In 2015, Parrott became the Female Figure Overall Champion for Australasian Natural Bodybuilding Fitness Mania. This qualified her to compete in the Ultimate Fitness Events World Championships Elite division in Toronto that year. Unable to go due to prior commitments, she set herself to compete again late last year, win again, and go to Toronto late last year. “In April I achieved my goal,” she said. “I was going to Canada, my home country, to compete at world level [in November].” After working with personal trainer Ty Hanley, of Hanley’s Fitness Mornington, Parrott placed first in Elite Masters Physique and qualified to compete in the Professional show – three shows over two days – and placed second in Elite Masters Figure. She also came second in Open Elite Figure and qualified to compete in the Professional show. “The added bonus was that all of the other Australians had qualified at a professional level as well. We were showing them how it was done!” Parrott came fourth in the Professional Figure category and won the Professional Physique contest. “My name was called, my medal

was put around my neck and my tiara was placed on my head. There were no words to say how I was feeling,” she said. Her training for the championships ramped up after the April win. “I had one rest day and was straight back into the gym. Ty had a 26-week plan that mapped out everything down to the day. He knew when we were doing strength or hypertrophy training, when I would do high-intensity training and when I would begin my walking regime, including how many kilometres a day and week. “There were a few weeks at the end where I walked 90km a week. We never had any question of what was needed to be done and the only changes made were around my work.” The full-time paramedic based at Langwarrin works a four-day-on, four-day-off roster which includes two 10-hour days, 11-hour afternoon and 14 hour night shift. She also works as a trainer at Hanley’s Fitness a couple of days a week.

Trio of aces defies the odds IN an amazing start to the year, three Rosebud Country Club players in the women’s competition scored holes-in-one on the same hole on the same day. Members Jan Brown, Narelle Colahan and guest Suzanne Lynch all “aced” the 14th hole on the club’s south course, Tuesday 10 January. “Holes-in-one on the golf course are rare, with the club seeing maybe a handful each year,”

marketing and membership manager Nicole Grace said. “The probability of a hole-in-one for the average player is about 12,500:1. The chances of two people scoring an ace on the same hole on the same day are in the 17 million:1 range. “Add in a third person hitting from the same tees, and the statistics are beyond belief.”


100 YEARS AGO THIS WEEK...

H. Gamble misplaces his cow Compiled by Cameron McCullough LOST Stolen or Strayed.–Spotted cow, branded HG, on rump, near calving. –H. GAMBLE, Frankston. *** AMONGST the last of casualties published is the name of Pte E. J. Vagg, of Carrum, who is reported as seriously ill. *** OUR readers are reminded of Brody and Mason’s high class Poultry Sale, on Wednesday next.–See advertisement. *** THE dance, held on Scturday night last, in aid of the “Wattles” Club Returned Soldier’s Fund, passed off successfully, and was most enjoyable. *** THE monthly meeting of the Seaford branch of the Red Cross Society was held in the hall on Wednesday after noon. The usual box was packed and despatched to Headquarters con taining the following articles. 24 large towels, 8 small towels 1 suit pyjamas, 1 scarf, 3 shirts, 6 pr sox, 2 pks cigarettee, cocoa, and 1 tin of condensed milk, £2 4s Gd, was collected for the funds. *** THE Essendon Band Entertainers appear in the Mechanics’ Hall this evening with a first class program of vocal and instrumental music, and on Sunday afternoon they will give an open air concert in the reserve ad joining the tennis court in aid of the local Red Cross Society. *** PARLIAMEMT has recently passed an Act, which enables the mother of an illegitmate child to take action to have it le-

gitimized where the father is absent from Victoria on war service, is physically or mentally in capable of taking action as the result of such service, or is dead. It is essential that no legal impediment to the marriage should have existed at the time of the birth. Information in regard to the procdure to be adopted to have a child legitimized may be obtained from the Government Statist, Queen St, Melbourne. *** GENERAL regret was expressed in Frankston on Saturday when it became known that word had been received by the parents of Private Ernie McComb that he had succumbed to an attack of appendicitis followed by pneumonia, in England. “Ernie” was a general favorite and being a native of Frankston was known by all. He was not a very strong lad and was refused three times before being finally accepted, but he had made up his mind to go and “do his bit” for his country and nothing would stop him. We sympathise sincerely with his parents in their sad loss. *** WE call particular and special attention to an advertisement in another column announcing that public meetings will shortly be held in Frankston, Somerville and Hastings, to promote the success of the new recruiting campaign this year. We understand that distinguished speakers will be sent down to each meeting from the headquarters of the central organizing body and that large representative local committees will be

appointed, with a small executive for each, who will keep in touch with the central organization. Full particulars will be given next week, but we may express a hope that when the dates are fixed every adult in the shire, whether man or woman, who desires to see the victorious termination of the war, will attend one or other of the meetings. *** PLOWING. Wanted about one acre of land plowed–L. FEAR, Kars street, Frankston. *** MR. JAS. TABB, the Champion Glubber and Cutter, wants work.– Address, FRANKSTON P O. *** RIDING ON FOOTPATHS IN FRANKSTON. Notice is given that anyone found riding on the footpaths in Frankston township will be prosecuted. By order, JOHN E. JONES, Shire Secretary. *** COMMONWEALTH OF AUSTRALIA. To the Employers of Australia: your Sons and your Employees have gallanly responded to their Country’s call. Many of them have already distiguished themselves on the battlefield. The Employers of Australia can also do part. THEY CAN LEND THEIR MONEY TO THEIR COUNTRY in order to earry the War to a successful issue. He Fights Who Pays. *** From the pages of the Mornington Standard, 20 January, 1917

Top cricket: Carrum smashed Carrum Downs in their weekend Sub-District clash. Picture: Rab Siddhi

Heavyweights flex muscles PROVINCIAL By IT Gully MORNINGTON Peninsula Cricket Association Provincial heavyweights Baxter and Peninsula Old Boys flexed their muscles in the first game of the new year on Saturday. Baxter star Dale Irving snared 3/0 as his side took 4/0 against Long Island to easily win by eight wickets, while Peninsula Old Boys rolled Langwarrin for less than 100 to easily steamroll their fellow top four opponent. Long Island is just a shadow of its past glory days and they were no match for Baxter. Batting first after winning the toss, the Islanders scrambled to 8/116 with skipper Aaron Paxton top scoring with 35.

The Islanders were travelling OK at 3/92 before Irving took three of the next four wickets, while Chris Brittain removed Paxton to take the score from 3/92 to 7/92 in a blink of an eye. Irving ended with 3/23 from 10 overs and Brittain 3/18 from 10 overs. In reply, Baxter cruised to the total with eight overs remaining, losing just two wickets as Brittain smacked 64 opening the batting, Joe Rule opened with 34 and Daniel Warwick was unbeaten on 21. In the battle for third place, Peninsula Old Boys had very little trouble against Langwarrin. Dylan O’Malley went to town on the Kangas bowlers early and made a 54 while his teammate Wade Pelzer at the other end made two of the first 50 runs.

The Old Boys fell in a bit of a hole and lost 5/41, however, Will Crowder with 48 and Jon Forrest with 22 ensured they got to a reasonable total (7/167). Mal Coutts with 3/25 from 10 overs was the pick of the Kangas bowlers, while Matt Prosser and Matt Campbell picked up two wickets each. Langwarrin was bowled out with 11 overs remaining in reply. Skipper Travis Campbell with 36 was the only shining light. James LaBrooy with 3/27 was the best of the Old Boys’ bowlers, while Adam Jones and Eivion Bowen snared a couple of wickets each. Sorrento is well and truly back in the mix after Bobby Wilson starred against Pines. Wilson picked up 3/29 with the ball

and then hit a game-high unbeaten 81 to steer the Sharks to a very easy victory. Damien Lawrence top scored for Pines with 58 after it won the toss and batted first. CJ King was also good for Sorrento with 3/28. In reply, Sorrento hit the winning runs with six overs to spare. Nick Wilcox was the best of the Pines bowlers with 2/33 from eight overs. Mornington dismantled Crib Point but neither teams’ batting performance was convincing. Crib Point sent the Doggies into bat and their bowlers did the job, dismissing the visitors for 127. In reply, the Pies’ batsmen again failed them, all out for just 57. Somerville took just 24 overs to reel in Moorooduc’s 62 runs.

Aaron Kaddatz took 3/15 from 10 overs and Matty Roach snared 3/17 from 10 as the Ducs were rolled for 62 in 39.3 overs. Somerville lost three wickets on their way to the winning total. Pearcedale caused an upset when it beat Mt Eliza. The Mounties batted first and made an awkward 8/125 with Damien Kent top scoring with 30. Will Kennedy was the best of the Pearcedale bowlers with 3/27. In reply, Pearcedale was 3/37 and then 6/77 before Max Blackburn took control of the innings and scored an unbeaten 63 to get his side over the line with more than six overs remaining. Lyle House took 3/51 from 9.5 overs for Mt Eliza.

Division tightens up at the top of ladder DISTRICT By IT Gully THE Mornington Peninsula Cricket Association District competition launched the new year in exciting fashion on Saturday. With some very important one-day games taking place, where top sides were pitted against those outside of the top bracket, the results could really shape the season. What the result did do was further tighten up the gap between third place and eighth place. Wins to Red Hill and Mt Martha further entrenched them into the top bracket, however, losses to Delacombe Park and Flinders really threw

PAGE 46

the season wide open again. Rosebud set Delacombe Park just 140 runs for victory after skipper Billy Quigley hit 50 and Jason Mathers scored 28 in their 40 overs. Andrew Stapleton was the pick of the Parkers’ bowlers with 3/38 from 10 overs. In reply, Jon Guthrie played a lone hand with 67 as the Parkers’ were bowled out for 124 in the 39th over. Ricky Ramsdale was the only other bat to score double figures with 20. Geoff Glaum picked up 3/22 from eight overs while Jason Nagel and Quigley took two wickets each. Flinders had a big test against Mt Martha and failed, losing by four wickets. The Sharks were sent into bat after

Western Port News 17 January 2017

losing the toss and limped to 105 in 39.1 overs. At one stage the visitors were 6/38. Blake Hogan Keogh regained his early-season form for Flinders with 67, including three sizes. In reply, Riley Shaw hit 39 for Mt Martha and Kane Hawkins hit 28 as the Reds reached the total in 36.5 overs. Matt Burns was the best of the Flinders’ bowlers with 3/32. Simon Dart was up to his old tricks for Red Hill again on Saturday, steering his side to victory against Baden Powell with an unbeaten 73. The Braves batted first and made 154 in 40 overs with Travis Kellerman scoring 36 and Coen Chernishoff 33. Lincoln Toy bagged 4/23 from seven overs for Red Hill while Glenn Collett

chipped in with 2/30 from 10 overs. Matthew Merrifield then opened with 43 for the Hillmen, Dart was still there at the end on 73 and Brent Martin contributed 23 to hand the visitors victory with six overs to spare. Heatherhill was made to work hard against Rye for victory. Rye made an impressive 161 in 38 overs after winning the toss and batting first with Steven Gale opening with 39 in his first game, Andrew Hitchener scoring 51 and Tom Baron adding 20. Matty Meagher was the stand-out bowler for the Hills with 5/15. The Hills had no issues getting the 162 needed for victory though, getting them with seven overs to spare. Ste-

ven O’Donnell hit an unbeaten 60 and Christian Heath was not out as they chased the total to finish at 3/163. Main Ridge got a very important win against Seaford Tigers, chasing down the Tigers’ 6/156 after David James hit 81. Shaun Foster hit 76 and Travis Barker 41 to get the Ridge away to a flier with a 124-run opening stand. The Ridge finished at 3/160 after 37 overs. Seaford picked up an important win against Boneo, keeping them from relegation issues. Boneo batted first and made 119, before Seaford got the runs with just one wicket down in 22.3 overs.

Competition is on the boil SUB-DISTRICT By IT Gully THE MPCA Sub-District competition hotted up even further on Saturday after the round seven one-day matches were played. It was already a tight competition, however, after the completion of the round, just one game separates third placed Tyabb from second-bottom Carrum Downs. Hastings and Ballam Park are now as safe as houses in the top four after the top two teams recorded wins against Skye and Balnarring respectively. Tyabb was the big mover with a win against Dromana. The Yabbies won the toss and batted first and

made 175 in their 40 overs, losing just five wickets along the way. Dromana was never in the hunt in the chase, despite 59 runs from skipper Jack Fowler. Dromana was bowled out for just 114. A bottom order wag helped Skye hit 106 after they were sent in by Hastings. At one stage Skye was 4/8 before skipper Anthony Craddock (22), Paul Fillipone (29) and Adrian Gallagher (22) put some respectability into the score. Luke Hewitt finished with 2/22, Mitchell Floyd 3/16 from 10 overs, including seven maidens and Isuru Dias 2/22 for the Blues. In reply, Hastings was unimpressive, getting the runs needed with just one wicket to spare, thanks largely to Jake Hewitt, who scored an

unbeaten 18 batting at nine. Robbie Hearn top scored with 26. Gallagher was superb for Skye with the ball, taking 4/23. Brenton Taylor and Nathan Kleinig scored 35 and 37 respectively to help Balnarring to 7/131 against Ballam Park. However, it was not enough as the Knights replied with 5/135 in 39 overs with skipper Stuart Plunkett once again top scoring with 41. Dave Roach also hit 20 in the victory. Carrum was it its best, smashing Carrum Downs. The Lions won the toss and batted first on Saturday with Brett Moulton top scoring with 33, Dylan Steed hitting 31, Campbell Ak 28 and Hayden Moulton 27. They finished on 9/179. Chris Moloney bowled well for the Cougars, tak-

ing 4/51 from 10 overs. In reply, the visitors were bowled out for 110 with Jordan Watters top scoring with 33 and David Dervan hitting 30. Troy Hollingsworth picked up 4/25 from 10 overs for the Lions while Lachy Dobson snared 3/19 from eight overs. In the shock of the round, Frankston YCW belted Tootgarook. The Stonecats batted first and made a healthy 6/174 with Jason Bedford top scoring with 72 and Levi McLoughin-Dore hitting 35. Todd Harnett picked-up 3/14 for the Frogs. In reply, Tootgarook was bowled out for just 55 in 28 overs. Tony Abschinski top scored for Tootgarook with 10.

Can European trio boost Strikers’ title tilt? SOCCER

By Craig MacKenzie PLAYERS from Italy, Switzerland and England could play crucial roles in Peninsula Strikers’ assault on the State 2 South-East championship. Italian defensive midfielder Leandro Parrella, 29, and Swiss central defender Raphael Stulz, 23, arrived in Melbourne last week. The Italian ace has an impressive CV having spent 11 years at Vicenza Calcio in Serie B. He started in the club’s academy squad and eventually served a twoyear apprenticeship before advancing to the senior squad. Parrella spent two seasons playing with the under 21s and reserves before joining fourth-tier outfit Mezzocorona and helping it win promotion to Serie C. He was signed by Sambonifacese in Serie D and helped it win promotion in his first season. He had two more seasons with Sambonifacese before joining Domegliara in Serie D. Stulz is a 194cm defender who has spent two and a half years in the US college system where he played with AFC Ann Arbor and Saginaw Valley State University. He also has been on the books of Swiss club FC Chur and Liechtenstein-based outfits USV Eschen/ Mauren and FC Schaan. The English signing is 22-year-old attacking midfielder Danny Brooks who has been involved in Tranmere Rovers’ Youth Development Programme for the past two years and is expected to arrive this week. Brooks has had spells with Prescott

Italian capture: Defensive midfielder Leandro Parrella.

Swiss signing: Central defender Raphael Stulz.

Cables in the Evostik League First Division North and Welsh club Mold Alexandra FC in the Huws Gray Alliance League. All three players were signed to football agency Soccer Smart Ltd, which holds trials in the UK, Europe and the US for players wanting to play overseas. Last year’s State 2 South-East champion St Kilda Celtic used Soccer Smart to bring players to Melbourne and recommended the agency to Strikers. The club told Soccer Smart of its requirements and viewed a dozen videos before settling on the three players it believes were best placed to strengthen the spine of the team. While the imports are important to the club’s ambitions Strikers senior

coach Craig Lewis won’t stop there in his quest to revamp his squad for 2017. “We are going for promotion. There is no question about that,” said Lewis. “And we are putting the infrastructure in place to support our ambitions. “We’ve got a good committee and we have people working in the background on some good sponsorships so all being well with the new clubrooms being officially opened next month we will be in a position to be successful.” Right now Lewis is focusing on signing a quality striker. He has been in talks with his top target but won’t name him out of respect to the player who has yet to commit to the club.

Sudoku and crossword solutions

“I can tell you that if we get him we will be very, very happy,” said Lewis. “We’re also talking to four other players who have played at a higher level and who will bring experience to us and a winning mentality.” First team keeper Richard Ojo has been released while Irish shot stopper Colin McCormack has been training with Strikers. He is a former Langwarrin and Skye United keeper who has also attracted the interest of South Springvale gaffer Ari Drakos and Frankston Pines. Teenage Springvale White Eagles keeper Daniel Shaw also is training at Centenary Park. Billy Buchanan and Mark Duff will assist Lewis this season and Graham “Winker” Watson again is in charge of the reserves. Matt Bennett is player liaison manager acting as a go-between for players, coaches and committee. The club hopes to appoint a manager to oversee fitness programs, injury management, dietary requirements and recovery programs. In other news Shane Tagliaferro has left Mornington and is being chased by Knox City and Doveton. Others to have left Dallas Brooks Park are Paul McEvoy, who has trained with Knox and Eastern Lions, and former Oakleigh Cannons star Scott Webster, who may join Doveton while Frankston Pines could lose Matthew Hames and Jordan Avraham to Knox. Here is Frankston Pines’ pre-season schedule: Friday 3 February v East Brighton at Monterey Reserve, 7pm (seniors);

Tuesday 7 February v Skye United at Monterey Reserve, 7pm (seniors and reserves); Sunday 12 February v Nth Caulfield at Knox Regional Centre, 3pm and 4.30pm; Tuesday 14 February v Chelsea at Monterey Reserve, 7pm (seniors); Saturday 18 February v Harrisfield Hurricanes at Monterey Reserve, 1pm and 3pm; Saturday 25 February v Keilor Wolves at Monterey Reserve, 1pm and 3pm; Saturday 4 March v Pakenham Utd at IYU Recreation Reserve, 1pm and 3pm; Tuesday 14 March v Ashburton at Monterey Reserve, 7pm (seniors). Scottish right back Stephen Dick was among a host of newcomers used by Langwarrin in Saturday’s 1-1 draw in a friendly against NPL 2 outfit Eastern Lions at Egan Lee Reserve. Midfielder Sam Scott is battling osteitis pubis, Caleb Nicholes, Nick Thorogood and John Guthrie were unavailable while Grant Lane was an absentee. English recruits Connor Belger and Paul Speed arrive in the next fortnight. There have been changes to Langwarrin’s pre-season schedule. Here is the update: Saturday 21 January v Baxter at Baxter Park, 1pm and 3pm; Tuesday 24 January v Knox City at Egan Lee Reserve, 6pm and 7.30pm; Saturday 4 February v Mazenod at Lawton Park, 1pm and 3pm; Sunday 12 February v Sunbury (Collins Cup) at Lawton Park, 1pm and 3pm; Saturday 18 February v Skye Utd at Lawton Park, 1pm and 3pm; Sunday 26 February v Whittlesea Utd at Lawton Park, 1pm and 3pm.

Scappare aiming for a treble By Ben Triandafillou UP and coming filly Scappare is looking to go three consecutive wins at Sandown next week after being scratched last Friday night at Cranbourne. Trainer Matt Laurie scratched the three-year-old after the Cranbourne racetrack was downgraded from a Good 4 to a Heavy 8 due to continued rain. “If it was a Dead 4, Dead 5 I would be happy to run Scappare but it got into the heavy range” said trainer Matt Laurie. “These faster horses with a low sprinting action don’t tend to handle those conditions. She’s better suited to a firmer surface.” Scappare has burst through to win her last couple of starts at Mornington for a combined margin of 4.8 lengths. Seated comfortably behind the leaders until using her quick turn of foot to dash to the front, Scappare has impressively put a gap between her and the rest of the field in her previous starts. Scappare is trained at Matt Laurie’s

35 acre Carringbush Park in Moorooduc on the Mornington Pennsula and often uses the Balnarring Beach to assist with recovery. After having early setbacks in her career due to the ‘thumps’, Scappare has recovered nicely and has started to hit the line strongly. “When she started she wasn’t going so well and pulled up sore after her first start, but has now gotten over the thumps and has become a true thoroughbred,” said part-owner John Ferguson. Now holding an impressive record of two wins and a minor placing from five starts, Scappare has taken her earnings to $26,475. Bred by Anacheva out of Prominent, Scappare has become Anacheva’s top progeny after winning her last start at Mornington over 1000m. Scappare is set to go through her classes and is hoping for another excellent run next Wednesday at Sandown.

McDonald brothers serve up success By Ben Triandafillou THE young duo, Alex and John McDonald, have cleaned up in the Frankston Summer Classic taking home both the under- 14s singles and doubles knockout tournaments. The Frankston Summer Classic on January 2nd run by the Better Tennis coaches was a three day tournament with about 150 entries, 36 of which were in the under-14 division. Alex was able to triumph in the singles winning five straight matches including a difficult 6-4 3-6 10-5 win in the singles, while John came out on top in the doubles defeating twin brother Alex, 6-3 6-3, with partner Neel Mohan. “We’ve played a lot of times against each other which is unfortunate but there’s no real rivalry between us, we are pretty good together” says Alex McDonald. The brothers also won the under-14’s Doubles at the Tennis Australia Gold Series Warrnambool Grasscourt JT & AMT Tournament on 31st December. In the final the pair got up to win against a tough, secondseeded opposition 7-5 6-1. “It’s good playing doubles. We are going well lately and made a few finals which is good” says Alex. Then on January 10, the McDonald brothers finished runners-up in the under-14’s doubles at the 2017 Margaret Court Cup in Albury against a strong fifthseeded opposition. With the support of the Mount Eliza Tennis Club coaches, the pair is determined to develop their skills and improve their game. “They’re there to learn, they want to get better and pretty much anything you throw their way they’ll give it a try” said Mount Eliza Tennis coach David Laird. Alex and John are coached twice a week at Mount Eliza by head coach Steve Foot and are assisted by their running coach Nathan Bonney to improve their agility and foot work. The McDonald brothers are avid to enhance their game often practising in their spare time. John even took it upon himself to only drink water during 2016, when asked how it was; John sarcastically replied, “It was great”. Alex and John McDonald are now preparing for their next few tournaments, including the North East Junior All Stars Classic in Wangaratta, hoping to keep their impressive start to the year going.

Interstate partnership for Mornington Peninsula Junior Football League By Ben Triandafillou THE Mornington Peninsula Junior Football League under-16 Boys and Youth Girls interleague teams will be playing the Northern Tasmanian Junior Football Association’s interleague teams in the first annual representative match over the Labour Day weekend in March. The MPJFL will be visiting Launceston for the beginning of what they hope to be a fantastic partnership with the NTJFA and a significant opportunity for the representative teams. The signing of an “In Principal” agreement between the two associations allows the MPJFL in conjunction with the NTJFA to conduct an annual representative match beginning in 2017. This interstate partnership will provide another great experience for the two teams on top of the traditional Regional Interleague matches in June. “This is a very exciting opportunity for our players to have the chance to play teams from Tasmania. Traditionally, we play the other Regional Interleague teams during the June long weekend, so it will be amazing to give our players another opportunity for representative football” says MPJFL President, Andrew Souter. “I am sure that with the support of all our MPJFL Clubs we can get this off the ground” The MPJFL and the NTJFA are hoping to utilise University of Tasmania’s stadium for the matches and are just waiting for feedback from management as to whether this is possible. The MPJFL as well as the NTJFA are seeking sponsors for the event from travel to food to accommodation for 60+ players and chaperones. This would be an exciting partnership opportunity for businesses to come on board.
