Footballer airlifted from Tyabb

Injured footballer Tristan Giuliano receives attention at Tyabb Airport before being airlifted to the Alfred Hospital. Picture: Supplied

A 17-year-old footballer suffering concussion was airlifted to the Alfred Hospital from Tyabb Airport on Saturday afternoon. Chelsea Seagulls under-19s player Tristan Giuliano was injured during a game against Tyabb at Bunguyan Reserve. Chelsea Seagulls president Michael Davis said Giuliano has been cleared of serious injury. ”He was airlifted to the Alfred Hospital and has been cleared of any spinal or head injury. He was taken based on a concussion and suspected injuries relevant to that, and was released from hospital on Sunday night,” Mr Davis said. Mr Davis thanked Tyabb Football Netball Club “and our extremely professional trainers Charlotte and Eilish for their care of Tristan in tough circumstances”. The helipad was opened by the Peninsula Aero Club late last year at a cost of about $400,000, with Mornington Peninsula Shire contributing $100,000. “This is one of the reasons we opened the helipad in the first place. We don’t have helicopters of our own so we needed to provide a community service, and it’s being used,” aero club committee member Ian Johnson said. “Having the fuel available down here helps extend the range of police helicopters, and it’s assisted in quite a few lifesaving situations.” Brodie Cowburn

Gas pipeline ‘reports’ at drop-in talks Keith Platt keith@mpnews.com.au TECHNICAL reports supporting applications to build a gas pipeline from Crib Point to Pakenham will be available at “community sessions” at Balnarring, Hastings and Crib Point. The proposed $160-$200 million 60 kilometre pipeline is required to carry gas from a floating storage regasification unit (FSRU) planned to be moored

at Crib Point by power supplier AGL. AGL announced last month that it has signed an agreement for the pipeline with APA as well as another agreement to prepare the berth at Crib Point for the 300 metre long FRSU (“Contracts ‘advance’ AGL’s gas plan” The News 12/6/18). Since that announcement – which included “guaranteed [gas and electricity] discounts” for the community and small businesses in Hastings, Crib Point, Bittern and the towns along

the pipeline route “should the project proceed” – Hastings MP Neale Burgess and Flinders MP Greg Hunt have said they oppose AGL’s project (“Libs ‘united’ against gas plan” The News 10/7/18). A protest on the foreshore at Hastings was attended by hundreds of people who marched with placards and listened to speakers warn about risks to public safety and the environment posed by the gas terminal (“Hundreds at power protest” The News 3/7/18).

In June APA said it had been working with AGL since October 2017 and, if given the go ahead by governments and the AGL, it expected the first domestic market gas delivery along the pipeline in the 2021 financial year. APA describes itself as “Australia’s leading energy infrastructure business”. “We’ve been connecting Australia’s energy since 2000. From small beginnings we’ve become a top 50 ASX-listed company, employing 1700 people

 Landscaping and Gardening Equipment  Bobcat, Excavator & Kanga Loader Hire  Building and Renovating Equipment  Log splitter, Slasher, Stump Grinder  Equipment Hire

and owning and operating the largest interconnected gas transmission network across Australia,” the company’s website states. “We deliver smart, reliable and safe solutions through our deep industry knowledge and interconnected infrastructure.” In announcing dates for the community information sessions APA said the meetings “will deliver an update on the project and provide an opportunity to ask questions and share your views”.

Planning doubts hit property prices Stephen Taylor steve@mpnews.com.au BUILDERS, real estate agents and vendors are bracing themselves for the effects of Mornington Peninsula Shire’s proposed Housing Settlement Strategy even before it is implemented. The broad aim of the strategy now awaiting planning minister Richard Wynne’s decision, is to increase the minimum size of lots for subdivision up to 900 square metres. This has meant that builders and developers, who previously would have been potential buyers of average sized 720-750 square metre blocks in Mornington, and particularly in the Dava Drive area, are now not interested because the blocks can’t be subdivided. Real estate agents say this has removed a segment of potential buyers and further cooled prices in an already weak market leading to drops of 15 to 20 per cent in sale prices. One seller in the Prince Street, Mornington area is reported to have watched as the house previously tipped to sell for up to $1.1 million fetched about $140,000 less. The mayor Cr Bryan Payne said the effects of the proposed strategy, across all peninsula towns and villages, would be to reduce the number of houses being built, resulting in less “suburbia”. The shire is campaigning against the

introduction of mandatory three-storey height limits (“Seeing red over house heights”, The News 26/3/18). The shire’s manager strategic projects Rosa Zouzoulas said the proposed neighbourhood residential zone introduced four new schedules affecting neighbourhood character and minimum subdivision size. One established builder in Mornington, who asked not to be named to safeguard his business, said the shire’s push to retain the larger lot sizes was “killing the goose that’s laid the golden egg”. “So many people are being caught up in this,” he said. “They’ve been waiting to sell their homes after many years and banking on strong demand and high prices and now that’s gone. “The [shire] has pulled the rug out from beneath the local housing market.” Tradies, building suppliers and apprentices on the peninsula could all be caught up in the downturn. Malcolm Parkinson, of Harcourts Real Estate, said property prices in pockets of Mornington affected by the subdivision proposals had fallen by up to $100,000. He said it was possible to challenge a development refusal by the shire at VCAT, but this would mean a 10-month wait with no guarantee of success. “Everyone is standing back to wait and see what the planning minister decides,” he said. Another long-standing builder, who

also asked not to be named fearing a “backlash”, said he was “not buying any [properties] because we don’t know what is happening”. “There’s a 50 per cent chance the [applications] won’t be approved and that’s creating uncertainty,” he said. Rob Bowman, of Bowman Real Estate, Mornington, said property prices “certainly have come off at least 15 per cent” while the shire’s proposed minimum subdivision size remains undecided. “We would normally send out emails to builders regarding properties coming up for sale and the phones would go into meltdown – that isn’t happening anymore,” he said. “Everyone’s scared. The place is in limbo. The [proposed] planning policy is shabby and archaic and there’s been a lack of consultation.” Ms Zouzoulas said “community stakeholders and interested parties had the opportunity to provide feedback on the proposed changes … of which subdivision was one possible change”. She said planning update meetings were held for consultants and applicants, and that letters were sent out to alert them to changes. Mr Bowman and the builders derided the value of the “stakeholder” meetings. “We got no word of them and it appears only certain people were invited and they were given very little information,” Mr Bowman said.

Doctor’s notes a winter remedy By Barry Morris

A DOCTOR could be forgiven for prescribing patients a dose of jazz music to help them get back in the swing and beat the winter blues. During a consultation, she could break into scat singing to show them how to breathe properly or check their vocal cords, not to be confused with chords. Or she could sing a gentle bossa nova to transport them from chilly Victoria to a sun-drenched beach in Latin America. “It will never happen,” laughs Dr Lizzy Gascoigne, a popular doctor at Mt Martha Village Medical Centre, who’s also an accomplished jazz singer. In the surgery, sharps have a completely different meaning from when she is on stage. As well as fronting sassy retro jazz band Kissing Harriet, Gascoigne, who lives at Mt Eliza, has worked with

pianist Bob Sedergreen at Paris Cat Jazz Club in the city. Her most recent gig was backing Mt Martha-based magician Cath Jamison in a cabaret show in the Melba Spiegeltent in Collingwood for the Melbourne Magic Festival. As a youngster, Gascoigne loved listening to jazz and became hooked on the rhythms, beat, improvisation and the complexities of the AfricanAmerican music Has she ever had a gig when the cry went up, “Is there a doctor in the house?”: “No, but occasionally when I do corporate gigs and look at overweight businessmen drinking lots of beer, I wonder if there could be the need for a little CPR at some stage, especially if they start tearing up the dance floor.” Lizzy Gascoigne and her band Kissing Harriet will be at the City of Frankston Bowling Club at 6pm on Sunday 22 July.

Pressure builds against quarry expansion Keith Platt keith@mpnews.com.au IT took less than one week for more than 1000 signatures to be added to a petition protesting at the reopening of a quarry in Boundary Road, Dromana. Hillview Quarries wants to reopen and expand the old Pioneer quarry to produce about 70 million tonnes of granite products over 70 years. The proposal has reignited the public opposition which forced Hillview in 2013 to abandon its plans to use the old quarry pit as a waste tip. This time around, Hillview has applied to expand the existing 8.25 hectare pit to 38 hectares with a depth of 190 metres. Mornington Peninsula Shire has voiced it concerns that Planning Minister Richard Wynne has authorised Hillview to investigate the environmental effects of reopening the quarry - closed in 1998 - before seeking a planning permit. The mayor Cr Bryan Payne says the decision is premature and avoids the necessity of consideration of “matters pertinent … at the local government level” (“Anger over quarry bypass” The News 10/7/18). The Department of Environment Land Water and Planning (DELWP) is yet to release the scoping requirements of the environmental effects statement (EES), which will be paid for by Hillview. As well as quarrying stone, activities at the site would include crushing, screening, stockpiling, sales and product collection largely using existing

THE placid waters that fill the disused Pioneer quarry off Boundary Road, Dromana, left, fail to reflect the turmoil being caused by the latest bid to reopen gates to the site, above, for business.

cleared areas and an existing access road. The shire is one of Hillview’s biggest customers. Mark Fancett, one of the leaders of the successful protest against the quarry being used as a tip, last week said the expansion of the quarry involved clearing 38 hectares of “pristine native vegetation” which “provides a biolink between two parts of the Arthurs Seat State Park”. “Last week’s council media release

[criticising Mr Wynne’s go ahead for the EES] shows the objections of council to this process,” Mr Fancett said. “The process whereby they are now to conduct an EES is even flawed. The EES is to be conducted by Hillview itself. How can we expect an impartial scientific finding when it is funded by the proponent? “The local community is outraged by this proposal. Indeed we have collected almost 1000 signatures from locals in less than a week.”

The reasons given by DELWP for requiring an EES include the expanded quarry’s “potential for a range of significant environmental effects” on such things as native vegetation (including threatened species and communities); existing landscape values, amenity and land uses of the project area and those associated with the Arthurs Seat State Park; groundwater and surface water; and Aboriginal cultural heritage values. The department says “an integrated

assessment is necessary to ensure the range of likely adverse effects and related uncertainties are sufficiently investigated, in terms of both their extent and significance, and how significant effects can be avoided and minimised during the construction and operation of the project”. It says an EES will “enable a transparent and rigorous process for consideration of potentially significant adverse effects of the project, prior to any relevant statutory decision making”.

Picture: Supplied

Shire moving to solar savings SOLAR panels have been installed at 19 buildings operated by Mornington Peninsula Shire, with a further 27 to go. By 2020, there will be 2440 solar panels on shire buildings. Dubbed “the rooftop solar PV rollout”, the next two months will see solar panels installed at the shire’s Rosebud offices (99.73 kW), Hastings library (50.4 kW) and Civic Reserve Recreation Centre, Mornington (99.73 kW). When completed, the program’s panels will generate 707 kW, estimated to annually shave $132,000 of the shire’s power bills and reducing its carbon footprint by three per cent.


The mayor Cr Bryan Payne said the use of solar panels “aligns to the Our Place strategic theme of the 20172021 council plan” and the shire’s commitment to “demonstrate leadership in climate change mitigation and adaptation”. “We’ve made a commitment to strive for carbon neutral council operations by 2021, we’re demonstrating leadership through a series of innovative renewable energy, waste recovery and recycling activities, and by assisting local businesses to make environmental upgrades that will reduce the carbon footprint of the entire

region,” Cr Payne said. Council has also helped community groups to install more than 50 kW of solar, including Mt Eliza Cricket Club and Sorrento Community Centre. The latest Environmental Upgrade Agreement between the shire, the Sustainable Melbourne Fund and local salad growers Hussey and Co, financed a 505 kW solar system at the company’s Somerville farm, with savings expected to expected to be the equivalent of taking 161 cars off the road each year. There are nine such agreements in place across the shire.

Pipeline information sessions Continued from Page 1 “The project is subject to a comprehensive program of regulatory approvals which are supported by environmental technical studies and surveys undertaken by specialists for APA,” the announcement of the community drop-in sessions states. “The technical reports that will support the project’s environmental effect referral and Environment Protection and Biodiversity Conservation referral will be presented. “Representatives from AGL will be also present at these sessions to answer your questions and queries about the FSRU Project.” APA managing director Mick McCormack said in a 12 June news release that “shipping-in the much needed resource [gas] is a smart solution”. “I’ve said for some time now that the east coast gas issues are about a lack of affordable gas supply, and this innovative solution championed and progressed by AGL certainly goes towards injecting a flexible source of new gas supply into

the tight domestic market in eastern Australia,” Mr McCormack said. “This should help alleviate potential gas supply shortfalls in Victoria in 2021 - 2022 as forecast by the Australian Energy Market Operator. “We’ll continue to work with AGL and all the relevant stakeholders to help bring this project to where a final investment decision can be made. As with all our new build projects, engaging with communities and landholders will be our key focus in the near term.” The community sessions organised by APA and AGL will he held at: Balnarring Hall, 3041 Frankston-Flinders Road, 6pm Friday 27 July.

A ROSEBUD resident says the shire’s supposedly tougher “party house” rules are not solving the problem because “no one answers my complaint calls after hours”. Ken Sapwell says he is being “driven to distraction” by a neighbour’s rowdy guests late into the night, with cars often parked across his driveway and guests even parking on his lawn. He says another elderly person living across the road is too frightened to step out of her house when party guests arrive. “Last weekend there were 11 cars and only eight could fit on the block, so we had three on my lawn – one across my front gate,” Mr Sapwell said. “People come and go all night. You’ve no idea. “I rang compliance twice early on the Sunday morning and got the usual recorded message and then nothing. So, to say there have been no complaints, is just wrong. I’ve been complaining but no one’s listening.” Mr Sapwell was taking issue with the mayor Cr Bryan Payne’s comments (“New rules winning party house wars”, The News, 10/7/18) that once-noisy party houses had been brought into line by the shire’s tough new regulations – the first of their kind in Victoria. The main feature of the new rules is a registration system that supposedly identifies owners

of properties, or their agents, who must respond to complaints by neighbours within two hours. Shire officers are also supposed to be available to act on irate neighbours’ complaints. Mr Sapwell says this may work in theory – but is cold comfort when no one at the shire picks up the phone late at night or early morning. Cr Payne last week said he had not heard of any complaints about party houses during the recent term break – the first school holidays since the Short Stay Rental Accommodation regulations were introduced in April. This confirmed his view that the tougher bylaws were justified. However, the shire’s community safety coordinator Craig Murray last week said the new laws were in an “implementation phase which is due to be completed by 27 July”. “Owners are not required to register their property with the shire until the implementation is complete,” he said. “Once owners are required to register their property, they will also be required to provide details to immediate neighbours for a contact who will be required to respond to complaints within two hours.” Mr Murray said any issues that would normally be reported to the police, such as amplified noise late at night, should still be reported to the police. He said residents experiencing issues with a short term rentals could call the shire “during business hours”.

Off-duty paramedic stabbed at Rosebud

Dandenong Hospital over the weekend. He was expected to be charged and further remanded over the incident later on Monday. Anyone with information is urged to contact Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000.

AN off-duty paramedic who stopped to pick up takeaway after finishing her shift was allegedly slashed across the chest with a box cutter in a random attack at Rosebud, Friday night 13 July. Detective Senior Sergeant Alan Paxton, of Mornington Peninsula CIU, said the woman, 46, was “putting the kids in the car” outside a shop in Point Nepean Road, Rosebud, when a man allegedly rode up on a bicycle, grabbed her from behind and assaulted her, 6.30pm. He then rode away. “It all happened very quickly,” Detective Paxton said. The woman was taken to Frankston Hospital where she received a “large number of stitches” to treat a 15 centimetre gash in her chest. The paramedic said on 3AW she was “slowly getting over the trauma of the attack” and would take time off to recover. She said she had received solid support from co-workers as well as police and other emergency services workers. While not drawing a link to her job and the recent spate of attacks on emergency services workers, she said she would not wear her uniform when driving home again in case it had “triggered” the attack. Ambulance Victoria chief executive Tony Walker said the woman’s two children, aged four and six, witnessed the “absolutely abhorrent” attack from the back seat of the car. “[It was] a horrendous assault on someone who has finished the day shift, had picked up the kids, was picking up some dinner... and she’s been assaulted by someone who we think we may have treated as a patient in the past,” he told 3AW. A man, 47, of no fixed address – but who the paramedic said she may have assisted in her role previously – was being treated for injuries at

Drugged out AMBULANCE officers reportedly set up a triage centre in the bistro of a Mornington hotel last week to treat patrons affected by the drug GHB. Senior Sergeant Neil Aubert, of Mornington police, said four patrons at the Grand Hotel were treated for the effects of the recreational drug, 12.30am, Saturday 7 July. Paramedics later confirmed that incident. They said a 21-year-old Mornington man found unconscious at the hotel was treated on the spot before being taken to Frankston Hospital for treatment. Charges may follow.

The man is described as being Caucasian, average build, pot belly, with light-coloured curly hair. He was wearing a black, grey and white striped hoody. Sergeant Cameron Scott, of police media, urges anyone who recognised the man or who has information to contact Crime Stoppers 1800 333 000 or submit a confidential report online at crimestoppersvic.com.au

Shots fired in Frankston

SHOTS were fired when police officers tried to apprehend the occupants of a stolen car in Frankston on Friday afternoon (13 July). Police saw a stolen Mercedes Benz SUV near Frankston-Dandenong Road, Frankston North at about 1.10pm and followed the vehicle before trying to arrest two men and a woman at the intersection of Frankston-Dandenong Road and Overton Road. Police confirmed a police officer “discharged his firearm” during the arrest attempt. The officer suffered a foot injury and no-one else was injured.

Scotch goes missing POLICE are looking for a man who allegedly took a bottle of scotch off the shelf at a Hastings liquor store and hid it under his jumper. Police said the man walked into the drivethrough bottle shop in Frankston-Flinders Road, 7.50pm, Tuesday 19 June, and spoke with security staff. After talking further with staff he left the store without paying for the bottle.

Free call 000 POLICE are advising mainly elderly residents that they should be wary of mobile phone apps claiming to be “duress alarms” which charge them money to call 000 on their behalf. They say some “duress alarm” apps claim to link clients to a 24/7 call centre with a “live” connection to police and emergency services. However, no app has a direct – or “live” – connection to Victoria Police or emergency services, police say. The monitoring of duress alarms requires a security licence, the use of a certified monitoring centre and the approval of Victoria Police. “In an emergency always call 000,” police say.

Recognition for pushing Uncle Bobs barrow FOR more than 60 years the peninsula group of the Uncle Bobs Club has raised money for the Royal Children’s Hospital. The group’s main event has been the 29 kilometre Good Friday wheelbarrow push from Sorrento to Safety Beach. This year a highlight was the presentation of a plaque to club stalwart Clem Kleinig who, at 84, participated in his 50th consecutive year on the barrow. This achievement was featured in a recent edition of the Uncle Bobs Club magazine. In 1956 Clem Kleinig moved from South Australia to Crib Point after marrying local girl, Val Lake whose mother was one of the well-known Woolley family. Clem formed a friendship with local identity Arthur Peterson, who owned the local service station, and this led to an association with the Uncle Bobs Club, formed in 1942 with the motto “Supporting Children’s Health.” After attending the Annual General Meeting at the Melbourne Town Hall in 1968, Clem joined the Peninsula Group and so began a long and distinguished association with the Club. Clem Kleinig was appointed Secretary/Treasurer of the Peninsula Group in 1973 and still holds that position. Highlights have been many and include receiving a shield from the then CEO of the Royal Children’s Hospital when the Group’s fund raising reached $ 1 million; it is now approaching $2 million. Another highlight was organising the 60th anniversary of the Uncle Bob’s Club, held at Mornington Racecourse, and in the process meeting and working with Dame Elisabeth Murdoch. However his greatest thrill has been watching the growth of the Royal Children’s Hospital into the magnificent hospital it is today and knowing that the club’s peninsula group has made such a significant contribution. For his tireless work for the Uncle Bobs Club and his other community activities, Clem

Kleinig was awarded the OAM in 1988. Clem’s wife, Val, and his three children (Susy, Bernie and Gordon) have been constant supporters and Susy is currently the peninsula group’s president. In fact, all members of the family including partners, children and grandchildren, are involved in some way with the Uncle Bobs Club. A fifty year contribution: Clem Kleinig behind his trademark barrow Award for service: The presentation of the award from Ray Richards, executive officer of the Uncle Bobs Club

Camp finds new base

‘Albo’ by the bay THE federal Opposition’s spokesman for infrastructure, transport, cities and regional development Anthony “Albo” Albanese, will get the lowdown on Frankston when he attends a “roundtable lunch” at the McClelland Gallery on Thursday 27 July. Mr Albanese will address members and guests of the Committee for Greater Frankston, including Frankston and Mornington Peninsula local government representatives, and is likely to outline more about his recently announced City Partnerships program, which he said would foster “genuine collaboration between the three levels of government” to tackle “urban sprawl, traffic congestion and a shift towards greater population density”.

TRAINING for triathlons has already notched up a big win for the Frankston and Mornington Peninsula area with triathletes from three states visiting to take part in a training camp last week. Good sporting grounds and venues alongside the convenience of surrounding landscapes for triathlon training has seen Triathlon Victoria move its annual boot camp for triathletes from Geelong to Mount Eliza and Frankston. Long and middle distance runner Craig Mottram and Australia national netball team coach Lisa Alexander shared tips with triathlon training camp participants at Mount Eliza’s Toorak College on becoming elite athletes. The Southern Stars training camp was attended by more than 60 athletes, 20 coaches and several presenters. “Toorak College has been a valued partner for this camp with first-rate facilities. Their flexibility with the group was most appreciated,” Triathlon Victoria athlete pathway coordinator Kyle Burns said. “The riding in the surrounds is a chance to do all types of riding on flat, hills and at the college. As well as running at Frankston reservoir, Frankston foreshore and others.” Swimming sessions took place at the Peninsula Aquatic Recreation Centre (PARC) in Frankston. “The feedback on the facilities available from the athletes have been extremely positive,” Mr Burns said. “Everyone is looking forward to next year.” Mr Burns said 10 Mornington Peninsula Triathlon Club participants “enjoyed showing all of the other athletes around their backyard”.

Internet scam SCAMMERS falsely claiming to be NBN Co representatives have been asking for personal information and financial details under the pretence of switching internet services to the national broadband network. NBN Co says scammers have been taking advantage of customers, including retirement village residents. “It is important to be aware that NBN Co will never make unsolicited calls or door knock to sell broadband services,” NBN Co chief security officer Darren Kane said. Anyone who believes they have been the victim of such a scam should report the matter to their bank and the police. Call IDCARE on 1300 432 273 for more help. See scamwatch.gov.au/report-a-scam online for updated lists of common scams.

Dancing for self defence A BUSH dance in Mornington on Saturday 25 August will raise money for the I Matter Foundation’s self defence programs. It will feature a live band, food van and family friendly activities. The programs are especially relevant to the survivors of family violence, and those with disabilities and mental health issues. They focus on developing courage, confidence and a sense of community. Instructor Sifu Glenn Shand, of Peninsula Kung Fu, who runs the classes, says participants report having improved self confidence, courI Matter: Belinda Cowie practises self defence at Mornington beach.

age, assertiveness, physical strength and fitness, as well as a sense of social connectedness. “A little over a year ago we ran one course for one group. I hoped that we could share some of the benefits of martial arts and self defence training with a small group of women overcoming violent and traumatic experiences. Their responses were overwhelmingly positive,” founder and director Belinda Cowie said. I Matter Foundation is a registered charity and deductible gift recipient run by volunteers. The foundation is developing local partnerships and is seeking further engagement from communities to help support its program. The bush dance will be held at the Peninsula Community Theatre, 91 Wilsons Road, Mornington.

SOME competitive types will go to any lengths to improve their athletic performance. Dedicated to their sport, they aspire to lofty goals while noting every second saved, every centimetre gained, and every kilo lost. That desire is making a new high altitude training centre in Mornington the go-to place for endurance athletes as well as those just wanting to lose weight. The centre’s technique works by drawing in air from outside the building and pumping it into a holding tank. There, the oxygen and nitrogen are split into their components with the oxygen taken out of the mix and pumped into the altitude centre at a controlled rate. Air at sea level is 20.9 per cent oxygen but inside this is reduced to 13.9 per cent – the equivalent of breathing air at 3500 metres. By comparison, Mt Buller is 1800 metres high. High altitude training was once only available to professional athletes. AFL footballers from Essendon, Geelong, Collingwood and St Kilda spent time in Arizona to reap the rewards of a tough pre-season’s training. Now athletes on the peninsula can use high altitude training to acclimatise to the rigors of a low-oxygen environment to train for arduous hiking or trekking adventures. “Athletes use high altitude training to enhance their endurance performance,” New Heights Altitude Training Centre’s Scott Pimlott said. “At altitude the body produces more red blood cells as it adapts to the low-oxygen environment. It is 30 per cent harder to perform in that environment. Our clients find their bodies become so much more efficient because they have so much extra fuel. “The body starts adapting after an hour in the high altitude environment; you can see the blood saturation levels changing. The body is adapting.” Mr Pimlott said high altitude training was also a weight-loss tool because it increases the body’s metabolic rate over an extended period. The body consumes fat for five or six hours after a session enabling clients to achieve leaner muscle mass. They don’t have to do as much training to achieve their goals to make big gains, he said, adding that one hour’s exercise inside the centre equates to two hours’ exercise outside. “It helps people to increase their lung capacity, which benefits those who suffer from asthma. Also, it’s a time efficient way of training.” A keen mountain biker, Mr Pimlott, of Red Hill, said recent clients had trained for an ultra-marathon in the Sahara over six days and 251 kilometres. “Others come to train for the ironman, running marathons and cycling marathons,” he said. “Rye boxer Jayde Mitchell trains at our facility as this type of training is popular in the boxing world.”

Team 11 avoids cut Brodie Cowburn team@mpnews.com.au THE south east Melbourne suburbs Team 11 bid has been shortlisted for entry into the soccer ALeague at the end of last month and is one of three active Victorian bids competing for the coveted spot in the competition. The Geoff Lord led Belgravia Leisure bid was one of five removed from contention by the FFA when the latest shortlist was announced. It was also recently announced that Jayco Australia founder Gerry Ryan would be getting on board as a financial backer of the Team 11 bid to be based in Dandenong. Aspendale, Chelsea, Langwarrin, Mornington, Peninsula Strikers and Westernport are among 43 Victorian soccer clubs who have signed letters of support for the bid to create an A-League side to represent south-east Victoria. The bid, operating under the title ‘Team 11’, sent the letters of support to the Football Federation Australia and Lead Advisor for the expansion process Deloitte as part of their expression of interest for an A-League spot. Team 11 project officer Matt Windley said the signing of letters of support is the start of forming “working relationships” between Team 11 and lower level Victoria clubs. “The support received thus far has been incredible and we can’t thank enough the tireless

efforts of the volunteers who run these clubs to help Team 11’s bid. We would love to have working relationships with all clubs in the southeast of Victoria,” Mr Windley said. “This is a club that has to be of benefit to its local football community. It goes beyond simply playing A-League and W-League matches locally, it has to be a genuine positive presence in the community and provide a genuine professional pathway for our young boys and girls. These letters of support are an indication from our community that we are building this bid in the right way thus far.” Frankston mayor Cr Colin Hampton said the potential success of the bid would mean “significant opportunities for growth and development to local players.” “We have the numbers, now we need to raise our voice to make Team 11 become a reality. We encourage everyone in the south east to get behind this bid and show their support,” Cr Hampton said. Mornington Soccer Club president Matt Cameron said that “location is the huge thing. Having a stadium in Dandenong 25 minutes up the road, it’s far easier to get to. But it’d also be great for our kids to be able to watch and aspire to play before for that club that is representing their local area.” The successful two teams on the ten team shortlist will be announced this October, and will enter the league at the commencement of the 2019-2020 A-League season.

Flinders drainage ABOUT $1 million will be spent on the second stage of flood mitigation works near The Avenue, Flinders. The works are designed to reduce the risk of flooding in the area as part of Mornington

Peninsula Shire’s drainage strategy. Swale drains, large diameter pipes, junction pits, surcharge pits, rain gardens and other works will be done along The Avenue as well as Hurst, Barker and Gordon streets. Jaydo Constructions, of Carrum Downs, is handling the work which will be expected to cater for a 1-in-20-year-rainfall event. Almost $1.3 million was allocated for stages one and two of the works in the shire’s 2017-18 capital works budget, with an extra $700,000 to come in next year’s budget to complete the project. Work will start next month and is expected to take four months. More than $1.5 million will be spent over the next five months on making Main Street, Mornington, safer. The state government’s safer cyclists and pedestrians fund is paying for the program which follows 29 accidents in the area between 2012 and 2016 – with 11 involving pedestrians and four involving cyclists. Ten of the crashes were regarded as serious.

MPs flocking like moths to an attractive issue Our local politicians are like moths attracted to the light when an issue is to their liking. And I’m the first one to congratulate the Liberal National Party kind of politicians down here who are supporting the fight against the stupid idea of AGL importing liquid gas through Crib point (“Libs ‘united’ against gas plan” Page 7). But when it comes to the climate threatening issue of Kawasaki turning brown coal into hydrogen, they and their Labor equivalents turn into toads hiding under rocks. Please tell us why it is such a good idea for the Kawasaki venture to create a very clean fuel for the Japanese while lumbering Australia, and in particular Victoria, with all the dirty detritus and CO2 pollution resulting from this process? The $100 million state and federal governments are giving away to Kawasaki would go a long way to alleviate our dire housing shortage and homelessness around our wide brown land. It seems when it comes to largess towards corporations, our rulers seem to find any amount of money, but where the ordinary people are concerned the solution seem to be penalty rate cuts and cutbacks to essential services. Rupert Steiner, Balnarring beach

Toxic omission The “Final Draft” of the AGL Contaminated Land Assessment dated 23 November 2017 unambiguously states: “Marine sediment sampling … identified concentrations of metals, PAH (polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons), PFOS (perfluroctanesulfonic acid) and tributyltin (TBT) in samples collected around the [Crib Point] jetty in exceedance of adopted assessment criteria for marine sediments.” This statement is omitted from the “Final Draft” of the same document dated 20 February

2018. To what purpose has it been removed by AGL? Are these toxins no longer of concern or would questions regarding their potential mobilisation and dispersal into the wider marine environment through dredging operations (euphemistically referred to as “sweeping” by AGL) or by propeller wash from LNG tankers prove a little uncomfortable? Tributyltin is one of the most toxic compounds known for marine life. Concentrations of less than 10 micrograms (less than one hundred thousandths of one gram) per litre are recognised as being toxic to fish and invertebrates. The mobilisation of tributyltin and other toxicants identified in the sediments and their spread into the adjacent Ramsar wetlands in tidal plumes has the potential to severely impact on aquatic life. Further, the daily uptake and discharge of 450,000 cubic metres of water by AGL’s proposed floating storage regasification unit (FSRU) may result in even greater dissemination of toxicants within Western Port. Who will monitor toxin levels in the water if AGL operations commence? Who will monitor fish and shellfish to ensure toxins do not accumulate in the food chain in Westernport Bay? Who will take responsibility if toxicities are detected? Surely the potential to mobilise marine toxicants as part of AGL operations warrants an investigation by EPA Victoria. Given Western Port’s biodiversity and the proximity of the Ramsar wetlands to the proposed FSRU, it would appear an environmental assessment through the Commonwealth Department of Environment and Energy is also warranted.

Western Port News

17 July 2018

All of the angst and protest against gas and brown coal processing at Crib Point [and Hastings] is beside the point (“Hundreds protest over power plans” The News 10/7/18). The Mornington Peninsula is “safe” for one political party. Neither major party cares one whit. The silly sheep on the peninsula will continue to blindly graze as usual and be fleeced as usual. And vote as usual. If the peninsula was marginal by one per cent or less we would have none of this filth, destruction and disruption. We would have instead, an electrified rail connection from Mornington to the city; preservation of Western Port; no Chinese resort on French Island (proposed); a giant modern waste incinerator (located somewhere else); perhaps thousands of proper jobs by relocating public service to the peninsula; perhaps attracting modern industry here instead of tourism; coffee shops and many other benefits to please us. Because of a marginal seat in Tasmania, the government is kicking in $25 million for an AFL football club there. Although sheep can’t think much, I think you should think carefully when you next vote. Be a black sheep. Brian A Mitchelson, Mornington

Time to change I trust Peter Clothier (“Doom not nigh” Letters 19/6/18) is rueing his comments given the Japanese floods. And perhaps he recalls the cooking to death of one third (more than 800 kilometres) of the Great Barrier Reef in just one week last year? Perhaps the multitude of climate change disasters which have been reoccurring week in week out in the last two decades? Great for the GDP which is based on destruction and population growth. We cannot break nature’s (scientific) laws without cost, no matter what we wish. They are immutable and impacting now at compound interest rates. We have to change. Looking into a 2x2 virtual construct rather than out of the window, listening to cant rather than knowledge, voting for magicians rather than realists, or taking out the informants won’t do it. Stop avoiding your responsibilities. One has to gain knowledge, change direction, behaviour and votes. We may only have one more cycle of elections at state, council and federal levels to do it. And for a turnaround it needs to be done sensibly and seriously, not foolishly. After all we are beneficiaries – even only alive – because of that science. And that science has solutions and opportunities that promise mitigation at the local, regional and national levels. Stop being selective or waiting for someone else to do it for you. Get constructive and give the next generation a chance. Kaye Mackay, Rye

Blame greedy shire That destruction of an unstable cliff environment is wrong on so many fronts. I believe an inclinator being installed at Mornington will seldom be used by the owners as their mansion has a horizon edge pool at the door. The existing path a mere two metres to the west of this devastation has been there for more than 100 years. It once extended into a magical garden created by Mick Tallis, son of Sir George Tallis (J C Williamsons). Mick was an amateur stonemason and his garden was an intriguing labyrinth of hand-cut terraces and stone walls, making the stunning walk between beach and house an easy stroll. This historic garden was bulldozed, along with the vegetation, to create what I see as yet another ugly monstrosity at the top of the block and the unnecessary “inclinator”. When will Mornington Peninsula Shire’s greed be held to account for the mass destruction of remnant vegetation, fragile cliff environments and Aboriginal heritage? Kate Philip, Mornington

Making a difference As a parent of a son with special needs, the future is a scary reality. He needs to stand alone, needs a job and, as his parents get older, we need outside support. Well, the owners of the Main Sail Cafe in Mornington have shown compassion by giving our son that opportunity, one that builds his esteem and confidence. Our Son Alex, has now become a capable member of the cafe’s team. It needed an employer with patience and courage to take him on,

and he is now a consistent, reliable, hardworking member of staff. And yes, there have been some awkward moments, but the support given by not only the friendly staff but the Mornington customers has made us so proud as parents. Alex is contributing to society and the Mornington culture, Our thanks go to the Main Sail Cafe and Mornington for making a difference. Don Gridley, Somerville

Saturday protest It’s my birthday tomorrow and I’m thinking about the happy relaxed time I will have celebrating with my family. Tucked away in the corner of my mind, though, is another thought about a milestone, but this one does not have happy connotations. It is rapidly approaching the fifth year since successive Australian governments have confined refugees and asylum seekers, including children, on Nauru and Manus islands. Many have no hope of a different future and languish in very poor conditions. Recently, many Australians were sickened by the US government policy of separating children from their asylum-seeking parents (now reversed, thank goodness) but let us not forget our own harshness that condemns, in some cases, whole families to an existence that resembles being “caged”. Another recent suicide of a young man on Nauru attests to the hopelessness of their situation. A grieving mother has lost her son and wonders if the same fate awaits her younger child. Along with other Grandmothers Against the Detention of Refugee Children, I will be joining a rally in Melbourne on Saturday 21 July to protest against our cruel policy. The question is, will I be doing the same in another year’s time? I sincerely hope not. Let’s tell our politicians that we cannot continue this cruelty in our name. Jean Pengilly, Hastings

Time to leave According to the new legislation you can now get 15 years in jail for damaging the government’s international reputation. So I am wondering when [Minister for Home Affairs and the Minister for Immigration and Border Protection Peter] Dutton and [former prime minister Tony] Abbott are going to be bundled up and shipped off? I don’t think anyone has damaged our international reputation more - including with the United Nations - than these two. Joe Lenzo, Safety Beach (via Sri Lanka)

Report animal abuse People throughout Australia are rightly outraged at the light sentence handed out in the case of a man who was convicted in the Burnie Magistrates Court of beating at least six fairy penguins to death with a stick on Sulphur Creek beach on New Year’s Day. The magistrate described this as a “callous act” on an “easy target” and said that the attack must have continued for several minutes. Although the magistrate pointed out that the man had shown no remorse, she imposed a penalty of just 49 days community service, and costs of $82. Under Tasmania’s Animal Welfare Act, animal cruelty can result in fines of $26,000 or imprisonment for up to one and a half years. A spokesperson for Birds Tasmania expressed extreme disappointment at the sentence and said it would set an “unwelcome precedent for future attacks”. Animal abusers are cowards. Because animals cannot report abuse and can do little to fight back, they’re often used as “practice” victims by violent people. A study by Dr John Clarke, a lecturer in psychology at the University of Sydney, demonstrated, using police data, that 61.5 per cent of convicted animal abuse offenders had also committed an assault and 17 per cent were guilty of sexual abuse. Most disturbingly, animal abuse was a better predictor of sexual assault than previous convictions for homicide, arson, or firearms offences. It’s time that this country started to treat cases of cruelty to animals as the serious crimes they are. Desmond Bellamy, special projects coordinator PETA Australia


Shire election candidates announced Compiled by Brodie Cowburn MR A. J Alden, who for some time was a representative of the East riding in the shire of Frankston and Hastings, announces in this issue that he will again contest the seat rendered vacant by the retirement of Cr Watt, at the forthcoming elections in August. Mr Alden will have as an opponent Mr H. E Unthank, and there are rumours of other aspirants to municipal honors in the riding. *** A FAREWELL social to Constable and Mrs E. C. Ryan will be held in the Frankston Mechanics’ on Monday, July 29th. During their stay in Frankston, Mr and Mrs Ryan made many friends, and their departure will be deeply regretted. Always most courteous and obliging, Constable Ryan proved himself to be not only an efficient officer, but a citizen who took a deep interest in affairs affecting the welfare of the town, and while regretting his departure, all will feel glad that the move means promotion. *** WE regret to announce the death of Mrs E. W. Hoyes at Nurse Noralla’s home, Glen Huntly Road, Elwood, on the 13th inst. The deceased was the wife of Sergeant L. W. Hoyes, A.I.F., abroad, and sister of Mrs F. A. Hunt, of the Bay View Hotel, Frankston. She resided for some time in Frankston, where she was very popular. Unfortunately she was a great sufferer from consumption. She passed peacefully away, and was buried at the Brighton cemetery on the 15th inst. *** THE idea of planting an Honor Avenue in Frankston to commemorate the names of all those who enlisted from Frankston and district to take part in the greatest struggle that has ever taken place in the world originated some months ago, and since then the committee appointed to carry it into effect have been working hard to gain their object. Saturday last, 18th July, was the day selected for the official opening, and notwithstanding that the weather for over a week previous had been extremely wet and unsuitable for outdoor work, the work of clearing the ground of trees and undergrowth, grading and preparing the ground for the trees was successfully carried out under the supervision of Mr John E. Jones, the shire secretary, by a gang of men who deserve every credit for the manner in which they stuck to the job under such adverse circumstances. *** ON Friday next, July 26th, the annual plain and fancy dress ball, in aid of the funds of the Wattle Club will be held. In the past these functions have proved to be a huge success anid it is thought that this year alI previous records will be eclipsed. Two prizes are being given for ladies and two for gentlemen, for the best fancy dress, and most original costume. Music will be provided by a string band. Double tickets are 4s and single 2s. *** THERE was again a splendid attendance at the Wattle Club euchre party and dance, held in the Frankston Mechanics’ on Thursday evening. Altogether 20 tables were engaged for the euchre tournament and out of the twelve games played, eight gentlemen secured nine games each. In the play off the prize was secured by Mr G Darcy. The ladies prize fell to Mrs Thompson, who played off with Mrs Burton, After supper the usual dance was held and was greatly enjoyed. *** MESSRS Korner and Garlick held a most successful sale at Cranbourne on Monday last, of cattle, horses, pigs poultry, etc, in aid of the Comforts Fund, and realised nearly £200, the whole of the proceeds going towards this patriotic object, the auctioneers generously defraying

the expenses connected with the sale. *** THE usual monthly meeting of the Somerville Fruitgrowers’ Association will be held on Monday, July 22nd, at 8 p.m., when the following business will be dealt with: Cool Stores, Agenda Paper Conference Delegates, Fruit Act. *** IN aid of the Langwarrin Church of England building fund a social will be held in the recreation hall on Wednesday next, July 24th. A good programme will be submitted, and supper will be provided. The price of admission is 1s. *** A GRAND concert, in aid of the Frankston Mechanics chair fund, will be held in the Frankston Mechanics’ on Wednesday, July 31st. The program will be a varied one, and will include vocal, and instrumental items, and pictures. *** A MEETING of members of the Victorian Protestant Federation from Mordialloc, Somerville, Mornington and Frankston, was held in the Frankston on Mechanics’ Hall on Friday afternoon, 12th inst. The meeting was called for the purpose of forming a district Council composed of delegates from the different branches on the Peninsula. Rev J. C. Farquhar (chief president of the Federation) occupied the chair. *** AN appeal for funds for the French Red Cross Society is being made throughout Victoria during the remainder of this month. The Fund is being organised by the French Red Cross Society in Melbourne, an official, and fully authorised branch of the parent body. The nature of the appeal is to be a simple reliance on the members of the public. No carnivals, the raffles, or any of her indirect periods of cajolery will be organised by the public and the outstanding aid of the cause. Since the inaugaration of the appeal a large number of particulars setting out the appeal in the attractive manner, have been contributed broadcast throughout Victoria, and already substantial funds have been obtained. In this district, patriotic bodies, public institutions, trade organisations and individuals have been approached, and a splendid response is being made. *** ON account of Mr Jolly being indisposed for a week, with influenza, he has been unable to collect money or unsold tickets for the concert held on 6th July. Tickets unreturned to date represent £24 5s, and Mr. J D. Jennings has kindly consented to receive unsold tickets, or the money for those that are sold. *** Lady Mayoress’ Patriotic on League SOMERVILLE BRANCH. No 71 QUARTERLY REPORT. Since our last quarterly meeting held in the Mechanics’ Institute on Wednesday, April 10th 1918, we have sent to Headquarters the following articles: 170 prs sox. 10 cotton shirts, 1 flannel shirt, 9 scarves, 2 caps, also handkerchiefs, washers, bootlaces. cigarettes, safety pins and notes of cheer. Letters of grateful thanks and appreciation have come to hand during the qr. to Medames Overton, Thornell, Griffeth and Misses Overton, Firth, Meldrum, Fulton and Bennett for sox received by soldiers on Active Service, through our Branch. *** From the pages of the Mornington Standard, 20 July 1918

From Rubber Ball to Pulling a Total Turtle By Stuart McCullough ONCE, I was awesome. Gravity was little more than a momentary inconvenience for me. Sure, I fell (and fell often) but, like the world’s most talented bowling pin, I would right myself in a matter of seconds. Falling over is no big deal when you’re a kid. Then, suddenly and without warning, everything changes. Whereas once you bounced back to your feet, falling over turns into something that, when it happens, you wonder whether, in fact, you’re ever going to stop falling. I can’t say when the wormed turned. I only know that it did. It makes me wonder: who put the worm in charge of anything? I’m not sure why some volatile invertebrate should even have a say, but the worm has most certainly done a full one-eighty and is unlikely to ever turn again. Stupid worm. My only hope for revenge lies in an early bird getting the worm that turned. That’ll teach it. But I digress. We were having a working bee at my father’s house. It’s something we do from time to time to make sure that he has enough firewood for the winter. Mostly it means heading out to the back paddock to collect wood. Notwithstanding my exalted position as the eldest child, my siblings won’t allow me to use the chainsaw - they’ve known me long enough to realize that it’s best for everyone that way. But a working bee at my father’s also means something else: dressing up. I leave nothing to chance. I’ve got my special work pants, hats, gloves, DECKING T/Pine 70x22 KD ACQ ........................... $2.40mt T/Pine 90x22 KD ACQ ........................... $3.05mt T/Pine 140x22 KD ACQ ......................... $6.25mt Merbau 70x19 Random ........................ $4.40mt Merbau 90x19 Random ........................ $5.50mt Merbau 140x22 Random .................... $12.50mt

safety goggles, gumboots, rainponcho and hat. It looks like the worst disguise ever, but I’m reasonably comfortable, despite being exposed to the elements. So outlandish is this get-up that I refuse to drive wearing these clothes for fear that the car might breakdown and I have to stand by the side of the freeway, risking ridicule. I should not be teased by strangers – that’s what family’s for.

Having driven down to Tyabb, I got changed into my wood collecting clothes and made my way down to the back paddock. Given the various safety restrictions, my job was to pick up the wood, load the trailer attached to the four-wheel motorbike and take it back up to the house. Originally, we’d scheduled the working bee a fortnight earlier but had cancelled it due to inclement weather. Despite

this, we then selected a day that struggled to get to double figures while it hailed sideways. We’d been at it for a matter of minutes before things started to seriously wrong. First, someone broke the wood-splitter. This is very easy to do if you over-reach and, normally, I’m the one who breaks it. Then the chainsaw got stuck in a tree branch. Suspended six feet above the earth, it was caught half way through a particularly large piece of timber. It would take all our ingenuity – not to mention brute strength - to get it free. Given these preconditions, it’s a miracle that we didn’t injure ourselves. My brother gave very specific and detailed instructions. Specifically, I was to push and pull the branch back and forth whilst he would work up a sweat trying to pull the chainsaw out. Granted, it was a simple plan. But its genius lay not so much in its simplicity but whether or not it worked. Pleased by the fact that this problem was not of my making, I seized a branch with great enthusiasm and started shaking. My brother yelled words of encouragement as he moved the chainsaw around. It was surprisingly taxing. I started to sweat. I began to puff. My muscles started to strain and burn. That all this could happen after only three seconds of physical effort was as disappointing as it was surprising. Then it happened. I started to lose my grip. Then I lost it completely. It happened just as I executed an especially vigorous ‘pull’ motion. My fingers slipped and I trav-

elled backwards with extreme force. Next thing I knew, I was falling. Down through the undergrowth until I was flat on my back on the ground. I knew I wasn’t injured and that the right thing to do was to get back up and keep on shaking the branch but it wasn’t that easy. Dressed in my gumboots, rain poncho, work pants and gloves; with more layers than an onion to keep out the hail and driving rain, I couldn’t get back up again. I had totally turtled. Spread-eagled, parts of my life flashed before my eyes. Specifically, those parts in which I practically bounced back up whenever I’d fallen over. It was clear that I would never be so elastic ever again. I stared at the sky beyond the canopy of leaves. ‘This is what it has come to’. My brother ascertained that my injuries were emotional rather than physical before laughing. I, on the other hand, was still lying flat on my back. Ultimately, I had to roll over onto my front on the way to getting myself upright. It was as elegant as it sounds. When perpendicular once more, I vowed to avoid falling over in future, even if it meant abandoning the chainsaw. After a while, we were called inside for soup. Returning to the house and grabbing a hot shower, I was reminded that the best thing about working outside is returning inside. Later, I fell onto my bed and turtled once more. This time, I was in no rush to get up again. stuart@stuartmccullough.com

Rosebud rescued by one-point win DIVISION ONE

By Brodie Cowburn ROSEBUD claimed a tight one-point victory over Seaford at Belvedere Reserve in a result that effectively ensures Rosebud will not finish in the last place of MPNFL Division One. The win, Rosebud’s fourth for the year, puts them 10 points clear of bottom place Seaford with just four games left to play. Seaford have won just one game all year but will need to win at least three of their remaining four games to close that gap. Their game on Saturday started strongly for Rosebud, as two Keegan Downie goals within the opening 10 minutes saw the travelling side go into the quarter time break looking comfortable with a two-goal lead. In the second quarter, Seaford fought hard to drag themselves back in the game. Although they had closed the margin to less than a kick by the main break, they again failed to deal with Keegan Downie, who scored another two majors and was looking dangerous. After the restart of play, Rosebud came racing out of the gates with three goals inside the first eight minutes of play. Seaford quickly wrestled back control though, kicking their way back into the contest and ensuring the margin only stood at seven points at the three-quarter time break. Rosebud’s accuracy was keeping them in the game, as they had kicked 11 goals and just one behind by the final break. Although Seaford fought valiantly, they just couldn’t do enough in the final term to drag themselves over the line, as they eventually went down to Rosebud by the narrowest of margins 11.9 (75) to 12.4 (76). Keegan Downie proved the difference for the winning side, booting six goals in a best on ground performance.

The result is the second one-point victory in as many weeks after Mornington upset Mt Eliza last Sunday in a thriller 7.8 (50) to 7.9 (51). The Bulldogs were underdogs going into the clash but fought hard to hold a narrow lead throughout the day. Mt Eliza took the lead

in the final term, but Mornington did well to snatch a goal back and secure a close win. Jackson Calder was the Bulldogs’ best with three goals. The remainder of games for the round will be played next weekend.

Yabbies upset Seagulls in a thriller DIVISION TWO

By Brodie Cowburn TYABB secured just their fourth win for the year and moved up to 10th on the ladder with a stunning victory over the highly fancied Chelsea at Bunguyan Reserve. The Yabbies got off to a red-hot start and held a fairly comfortable 21 point lead at the half-time break. Star forward Jake Anderson had set the game alight, kicking four majors in the first half to put his side in pole position. In the third term, Chelsea stormed back into contention with five goals putting them within one point of Tyabb at the final break. Tyabb have struggled all year but battled bravely to hold back a fast-finishing Chelsea, as the Yabbies held on to secure a brilliant upset win 12.16 (88) to 12.13 (85). The loss sees Chelsea surrender third spot to Red Hill, which could cost them the crucial second chance come finals time. At Lloyd Park, Langwarrin were faced with a “do or die” situation against ladder leaders Dromana. Coming off a disappointing loss last week, the Kangaroos needed to win to keep touch with fifth place Hastings and give themselves a shot at making finals. Already faced with the difficult task of knocking off the top of the ladder side, the job was made harder for the Kangaroos by their slow start. Langwarrin didn’t register a single point in the first term as Dromana raced to a 22-point lead at the first break. Despite having everything to play for, Langwarrin couldn’t bounce back in the second term, as Dromana piled on the goals to take a 60-point lead into half-time. After the restart of play, Langwarrin could do little to stem the flow of Dromana goals. While the Kangaroos were a bit better the second half, they

still couldn’t stop Dromana from running away with a dominant victory 3.4 (22) to 15.20 (110). Ben Holmes was a dominant target up forward all day for Dromana, kicking five goals for the day. Ruckman Rory Gregg, Jack Gipp, Ryan Smyth and Terry Wheeler were also among the best performers for the winning side. Dromana dominated the tackle count all day and were relentless in their pressure. The win all but secures them first place on the ladder coming into the final month of the home and away season. Langwarrin now face Hastings in an absolutely crucial game next week, with a loss mathematically ruling the Kangaroos out of finals contention. Kangaroos co-coach Blake McCormack said his side had a lot to do next week after the tough loss. “It felt like Dromana wanted it more today. They led the tackle count and had more of the ball which was quite frustrating. Our intensity wasn’t up to it, they were too good,” he said. “We get a few players back next week, probably about five spine players and leaders that we can really structure our game around. We have hope for next week, we’re a long way out of fifth spot but we roll on to Hastings next week and we really feel we can get some wins on the run home.” Langwarrin are set to be boosted by the returns of Nick Hammill, Shane Paterson, Blake Peach, and Sean Herdman. Co-coach McCormack could also be set to return to the field depending on the results of an upcoming brain scan. McCormack has sat out the last two games following a big head knock against Karingal. At Thomas Barclay Oval it was a different story for Hastings, who solidified their spot in the top five with a comfortable victory over Pearcedale. Hastings got things started on the right foot, as they established a 19 point buffer by the quarter time break. Their fast start set the tone for the remainder of the day, as Pearcedale never looked like fighting their way back into contention. Helped by four goals each to Luke Hewitt and

Flying high: Dromana got up over Langwarrin. Picture: Andrew Hurst

Paul Rogasch, Hasting eventually ran away to secure an easy victory over Pearcedale 17.11 (113) to 7.8 (50). Not only does the win keep Hastings sitting comfortably in fifth place, it also keeps them within eight points of second spot going into the final rounds of what has been a tight and competitive season. At Glover Reserve, Devon Meadows hosted Somerville in what would prove to be a very even matchup. Despite the margin standing at 19 points at threequarter time, Somerville fought back to claim the

lead with 10 minutes to play in the final term. Shell-shocked, Devon Meadows needed to find a quick response and did so to kick themselves ahead and hold onto a narrow lead. When the final siren sounded, Devon Meadows were just ahead as they claimed a hard-fought win 11.13 (79) to 9.14 (68). Michael Theodoridis was again a standout for Devon Meadows, booting five majors to take his tally to the year to 45. At Ballam Park Reserve it was business as usual for Karingal, as the Bulls pushed aside Rye without much trouble at all. Rye actually got off to a strong start and went into the quarter time break with a three-point lead. After the break though, Karingal were bullish in wrestling back the lead and asserting their dominance on the game. The Bulls battled to establish a 20 point lead at half-time, and their lead only grew after the restart of play. The Demons provided little fight after their strong first quarter, as Karingal claimed a strong win 15.14 (104) to 7.6 (48). In the final game for the weekend, Red Hill ran over the top of Crib Point to secure an easy 80-point victory. Just one solitary goal in the first half for Crib Point ensured they were never a chance against an impressive Red Hill side who have now won their last seven games and sit third on the ladder. The Magpies showed a little more fight in the second half but could do little to stop the rampaging Red Hill, as the final score finished 4.5 (29) to 16.13 (109) in Red Hill’s favour. Ben Hughes played his best game for the year for Red Hill, kicking seven goals. Dylan Hoare, Jake Mold, and Daniel Allsop were also among the best for the winning outfit. Red Hill will go on to play Karingal next week in a huge match, with the winner claiming second spot on the ladder as their own. Western Port News

Dooley coup for Southern SOCCER

By Craig MacKenzie LOCAL NPLW club Southern United has signed American striker Michaela Dooley to a two-year deal with a oneyear option. Dooley arrived in Melbourne last week and has trained with her new teammates and Southern hopes to finalise her international clearance in time to face Alamein next weekend. Dooley’s signing is a major coup as she has been in sparkling form for Swedish club Skövde KIK and had been approached by a Queensland-based club who offered her $2500 a month, a job and free accommodation. The 23-year-old was born in San Diego, California but grew up in Scottsdale, Arizona and the former University of Kentucky star admits that the Queensland offer was attractive. “I was very tempted to take it but it was an offer to finish off the rest of the season then re-evaluate after that and I was looking for something with more stability, something more of a long-term commitment,” Dooley said. Southern head coach Aaron Myatt played a crucial role in Dooley’s decision to join. “He wasn’t pushy. He was great on the phone and was a pleasant person to work with and if he couldn’t answer my questions he would go away and find the answer then get back to me. “He let me take my time, ask as many questions as I wanted and helped me work through the whole process.” Another factor in Southern’s favour was that Dooley’s junior club back in the US was SC Del Sol which was a development club with an emphasis on nurturing its own talent. Dooley was able to draw parallels with Southern and it didn’t take long for her to buy into the Myatt mantra that the senior team would be a powerful outfit down the track. Her three-month stint in Sweden netted seven goals in 13 games and a host of assists, an impressive return given that she started in a central defensive role before assuming the responsibilities of an attacking midfielder. Dooley is relishing the prospect of being in the shop window as she has W-League ambitions and a CV that suggests she has the ability to match. She played for Team USA at last year’s world university games in Taiwan and Myatt sees her as a pivotal part of his plans for the senior squad. “For the last two months her games (in Sweden) have been available online so that gave me a good opportunity to assess her and she is the type of player you

can build a side around,” Myatt said. “Michaela is still developing as a player and as she grows the team will grow too.” As Southern’s on-field plans begin to take shape the club has also been active off the field as shown by the recent appointment of Harry Chalkitis as technical director. Chalkitis has an impressive résumé in Victorian men’s soccer and is a former head coach of the state’s National Training Centre women’s program. The current jewel in Southern’s crown is its under-14 squad and despite losing 1-0 to Calder on Sunday it still heads the table and is eyeing a second successive championship. The under-12s won 2-1 with Rhiannon Kelleher scoring for Southern, the first from a free-kick and the second a sweetly timed left-foot shot. The under-16s lost 4-1 with Jasmine Ristevski scoring for Southern. In NPL2 news Langwarrin drew 1-1 with Springvale White Eagles at Lawton Park on Saturday. Langy dominated the first half despite losing Lewis Foster and Michael Kariuki after 20 minutes to knee and rib injuries respectively. John Kuol calmly slotted the ball home to give Langy the lead in the 26th minute after Liam Baxter’s slide-rule pass. Baxter thought he’d increased the lead just before the interval but his bullet-like header was ruled offside by the assistant referee in a decision that mystified players and spectators alike. But White Eagles took control early in the second half and Langy was made to pay for leaving Delamo Pharoe un-

marked in the box in the 51st minute. In the final analysis it was a valuable point for both sides. Defender Andy McIntyre told Langwarrin after the match that he was leaving. McIntyre had spent five years at Lawton Park and wants to wind down before holidaying in the US in a few weeks’ time. In State 1 South-East news Mornington ran out a convincing 4-0 winner over a depleted St Kilda Celts side at Dallas Brooks Park last weekend. Sammy Orritt and Max Etheridge had good chances early in the contest before both were involved in the opening goal in the 24th minute. Etheridge’s shot from the right of the area was blocked by the foot of St Kilda keeper Remy Rey-Lescure and Orritt smacked the rebound which Keegan Ziada got a foot to deflecting it into goal. Two minutes into the second half St Kilda failed to clear an Orritt cross and Ziada was allowed to take four touches inside the area before slamming home a low strike from 10 metres. Substitute Curtis Hutson combined with Andre Bennett in the 83rd minute with Hutson’s far post cross headed back into the goalmouth by Orritt and Etheridge buried his close-range shot to make it 3-0. It was a stroll for the home side now and Etheridge struck again in the 89th minute after being sent clear by Hutson. In State 2 South-East news Peninsula Strikers lost 5-0 at home to title-chasing Knox City last weekend while Frankston Pines lost 3-1 away to Old Scotch. Strikers’ central defender Alex van Heerwarden was sent off in the 19th


minute and Knox City’s scorers were Mathew Hames (2), Grant Lane, Koray Suat and Josh Calle. Jeran Cerik opened the scoring for Old Scotch in the 8th minute and a back post header from Kurt Wagner-Goldsworthy in the 50th minute made it 1-1. But four minutes later Sam Shearer made it 2-1 and substitute Ryan Hughes was only on the pitch for two minutes before rounding off the scoreline in the 67th minute. Pines’ substitute Will O’Brien was given a straight red card in injury time for abusive language. In State 3 South-East news Skye climbed into second place after a comfortable 3-0 away win at Dingley. The club went into the clash without top scorer Caleb Nicholes who was suspended. The first half was a battle on a poor pitch and Skye’s best chance came five minutes from half-time when Cam Leopold’s free-kick found Daniel Attard whose effort struck the crossbar. The second half was dominated by Skye and a 10-minute goal spree kicked off in the 53rd minute when stand-in skipper Jason Nowakowski got on the end of a John Andrinopoulos cross and finished well to give Skye the lead. In the 60th minute, Skye doubled its lead when Attard’s header came back off the post and Nowakowski tapped in from close range for his second. Attard got on the scoresheet a couple of minutes later when he hammered home a loose ball in the box following a Mitch Blake cross. Skye faces relegation-threatened Noble Park United at home next weekend in the Chris Attard memorial round.

Harry McCartney reports that Seaford United lost 2-1 at home to Whitehorse United last weekend. Jet Fisher pounced on a goalkeeping error from Seaford’s Jimmy Zafiriou in the 29th minute to open the scoring. Referee Mike Zha awarded a controversial penalty to Whitehorse United in the 42nd minute after what looked like a good tackle by Tristan Stass and Nham Than gave the visitors a 2-0 half-time lead. Seaford huffed and puffed in the second period but the best it could come up with was a Dylan Waugh consolation goal in the 93rd minute. In State 4 South news Baxter had to settle for a point away from home after its 1-1 draw with Noble Park last Saturday. Baxter coach Francis Beck was in goal as regular custodian James Foster was on holiday but Beck was given no chance when Alessandro Stazio volleyed home in the 32nd minute. Former Chelsea and Peninsula Strikers wide midfielder Adrian Pace made his Baxter debut and equalised in the 41st minute when an attempted clearance cannoned off him and into goal. Both sides created chances in the second half but couldn’t take them. In State 5 South news Aspendale tuned up for this weekend’s clash with Somerville Eagles with a 3-0 home win over more fancied Pakenham United last Saturday. Domenic Paul opened the scoring in the 6th minute, Alex Apostolopoulus gave Aspendale a two-goal cushion in the 25th minute and a second from Paul in the 38th minute had the home team in control at the break. The second half was marred by two send-offs with Aspendale’s Dylan Lansford-Povey sent off in the 79th minute and being joined on the sideline by Pakenham substitute Garry Mousaco in the 85th minute. Aspendale’s best were Paul, Sam Timuska-Carr and Pal Calvino. Next weekend’s games: SATURDAY 3pm: Moreland City v Langwarrin (Campbell Reserve), Mornington v Casey Comets (Dallas Brooks Park), Brandon Park v Frankston Pines (Freeway Reserve), Berwick City v Peninsula Strikers (Jack Thomas Reserve), Skye Utd v Noble Park Utd (Skye Recreation Reserve), Middle Park v Seaford Utd (Albert Park Field 16), Baxter v Endeavour Utd (Baxter Park), Aspendale v Somerville Eagles (Jack Grut Reserve).

Breakers host New Zealand visitors BASKETBALL

THE Mornington Breakers played host last Friday to visiting side Franklin Basketball, based in Auckland, New Zealand. The Breakers Under 16s Girls and their Under 14, 16, and 18 Boys sides played off in a series of one-off matches against Franklin Basketball at Mornington Basketball Stadium. One of the highlights of the visit to Mornington was the pre-match Haka performed by Franklin Basketball. In Big V action, the Mornington Breakers Division Two Women’s side had mixed fortunes, bouncing back from a tough loss (45-62) against Blackburn Vikings with a big win over the Coburg Giants this Saturday. The Breakers were completely dominant in their victory over Coburg, with a stunning second quarter in which they outscored the Giants 22-9 setting the tone for a strong win. Fiona Darnell put on a stunning performance for the winning Breakers, dropping 28 points and claiming an astonishing 17 rebounds in a standout performance. Ashleigh Wright also contributed with a handy 17 points of her own, shooting at 57 percent efficiency as her side claimed the win (85-47). Their recent mixed results sees the Breakers stranded in seventh place, but they face the prospect of dropping lower given the fact they have three games in hand over eighth-placed Melton. In Division One Men’s competition, the Chelsea Gulls extended their win-

ning run to a whopping 11 matches with a pair of stunning victories over Latrobe City Energy and Geelong Supercats. The top of the table Gulls were always expected to win against lastplaced Latrobe City, but it was the manner in which they beat them that was most impressive. The Gulls were ruthless in claiming a win in a completely one-sided match (105-59). The standout performers for the Gulls were Matthew Brasser and Mitchell Riggs, who scored 25 and 30

points respectively. Kieran McQueen also contributed with 10 rebounds. The Gulls backed up that win with another strong performance against the Geelong Supercats, as they travelled to Geelong Arena and ground out a hard-fought win (91-109). Matthew Brasser again impressed with 26 points, while Corey Standerfer also played a big part, dropping 24 points of his own. The wins see the Gulls solidify their place on top of the table, two wins ahead of Shepparton Gators. The Gulls’ Division One rival

Western Port Steelers slipped up last weekend, falling at home to Warrnambool Seahawks. The Steelers were put on the back foot early and went into the half-time break 19 points behind. Although they fought back harder in the second half, they eventually fell short and succumbed to the Seahawks (71-82). Dylan Travis did his best to help his side to a win with 26 points, but it was the Seahawks’ Xavier Blount who proved the difference with a massive 33 point game. The Steelers remain in fourth place,

but the Seahawks are hot on their heels in fifth place. In Division Two Men’s, the Southern Peninsula Sharks have got their season back on track by claiming three more wins to stretch their winning streak to four. Last weekend the Sharks put on one of their best performances of the season, as they dispatched fifth-placed Mildura Heat with ease. Despite the two sides appearing even on paper, the Sharks dominated from the outset, and eventually breezed to a (92-48) win. The Sharks followed that result up with two narrow wins, the first being over the Altona Gators last Sunday. The Sharks travelled to Altona and got things off to a positive start by taking a seven-point lead into the first break. Although Altona battled hard, they couldn’t close the gap with the score finishing (65-73). The Sharks this Saturday secured another big result with a huge win over the second place Craigieburn Eagles. The game was an even contest all throughout the night, with the margin standing at just two points in the Eagles’ favour at the three-quarter time break. Despite having to come from behind, the Sharks eventually wrestled back the lead and held on to claim an impressive (94-89) win. The best performer for the Sharks was Corey Bond, who sunk 29 points in a game-winning performance.
