The Transport Accident Commission has again thrown its support behind the Arthurs Seat Challenge, which promotes road safety education for young people and raises money to support the Fit2Drive program. All funds from this event, are channelled back into local secondary schools across the Peninsula and Frankston area, UHPRYLQJWKHĂ€QDQFLDOEXUGHQIRU schools and ensuring all Year 11 students have access to this best practice road safety program. The popular event, held on Sunday November 12, is expected to draw some 2000 participants and is yet another important step in support of the 0RUQLQJWRQ3HQLQVXOD6KLUH¡V push to become a Towards Zero municipality. 7$&FKLHIH[HFXWLYHRIĂ€FHU-RH &DODĂ€RUHSUDLVHGWKH0RUQLQJWRQ Peninsula community for continuing to show leadership in 9LFWRULD¡VSXVKWRZDUGVDIXWXUH where every journey on our roads is a safe one. “The Mornington Peninsula Shire has embraced a positive and proactive approach to road safety for several years now and the community must be congratulated for initiatives such as the Arthurs 6HDW&KDOOHQJHÂľ0U&DODĂ€RUHVDLG ´7RZDUGV=HURGHĂ€QHVRXU

Promoting Road Safety: The Annual Arthurs Seat Challenge Fun Run Picture: Yanni approach to saving lives and reducing injuries on our roads and it requires buy-in and commitment from everyone – we all have a role to play and Mornington sets a great example.� Last year, 10 people died on Mornington Peninsula roads, half of them were young drivers aged 18 to 25. The Fit2Drive program delivers peer facilitated workshops with Year 11 students in secondary

schools across the state. The program aims to change attitudes and thus reduce risky behaviours for all young road users, including drivers and passengers. With too many young people dying and suffering serious injuries on RXUURDGV0U&DODĂ€RUHVDLGURDG safety education was crucial in shaping the choices young drivers make. “From 2012 to 2016, on average 21 per cent of all drivers killed

Victorian roads were aged 18 to 25, despite that age group representing around 14 per cent of all licence holders.� “Our research shows that young drivers are more likely to take risks on the roads and this combined with inexperience and the fact that they are often driving cars without the latest safety features – is a major reason for the over-representation in young driver deaths.�

“Good driver behaviour is learnt from a young age which is why we have road safety programs like Fit2Drive running in schools across WKHVWDWHÂľ0U&DODĂ€RUHVDLG You can learn more about Towards Zero by visiting www. towardszero.vic.gov.au or register for the Arthurs Seat Challenge at www.arthursseatchallenge.com. au Schools can book a Fit2Drive Workshop by visiting www.f2d.com.au.

GAS tankers nearly three times the length of this 100 metre Westfal-Larsen ship pictured with the pilot boat off West Head, Flinders, will be using Western Port if energy company AGL chooses Crib Point for its floating gas import terminal. Picture: Keith Platt

Western Port link in gas plans Keith Platt keith@mpnews.com.au WESTERN Port may play a role in easing Australia’s energy problems if energy supplier AGL goes ahead with a floating gas terminal at Crib Point. The terminal moored at the end of the jetty would warm chilled LNG into gas to be fed straight into a pipeline for the domestic market. Although Victoria produces more gas than it uses from fields in Bass Strait, the LNG would be imported from elsewhere in Australia and overseas. LNG is exported from the Esso plant at Long Island Point, Hastings, a few

miles north of the proposed import site at Crib Point. “This project will enable access to the world market for gas, injecting some much-needed competition into the Australian market and ease the pressures on gas supply,” AGL executive general manager wholesale gas Richard Wrightson said in a statement headed “AGL Considering Liquefied Natural Gas (LNG) Transport Project To Secure Supply, Stabilise Prices”. “As a major player in the energy industry, AGL is working hard to deliver reliable and affordable energy to increase competition in the gas market for domestic and industrial custom-

ers.” Mr Wrightson said tankers up to 290 metres long would bring the LNG to the jetty. As well as Western Port, AGL is also doing feasibility studies for a gas terminal at Port Adelaide in South Australia and Port Kembla in New South Wales. Its preferred location will be announced “in coming months”. “Before a site is selected, our investigations will include discussions with local communities about their questions and concerns, including managing risks from transporting hazardous materials, safety, security, and envi-

ronmental protection,” Mr Wrightson said. He said AGL has started “consulting with the project’s potential neighbours and local community groups” and has already told state and federal governments about “the broad scope of the project”. “Community consultation so far has highlighted the importance of various environmental aspects including the protection of seagrasses and other flora and fauna and assessing the need for a manned fire tug and other fire safety services as a precautionary measure near the ship,” Mr Wrightson said. “The community has also mentioned

that the channel is quite narrow at points, which could be challenging given the length of the ships. “AGL has given this some thought and will conduct a technical assessment of ship manoeuvrability at the three potential sites. “AGL emphasises that while no decision has been made yet to proceed with the project, initial studies have shown that the project may be commercially viable.” Mr Wrightson said AGL was “working hard to deliver reliable and affordable energy to increase competition in the gas market for domestic and industrial customers”.

Shire, protesters at odds over pound By Keith Platt and Stephen Taylor MORNINGTON Peninsula mayor Cr Bev Colomb says looking after and finding new homes for unclaimed cats and dogs is “high priority” for the shire. However, a group of animal lovers plans to demonstrate outside the shire’s Mornington offices on Sunday over their claims of secrecy surrounding how many unwanted animals are being put down. The Save Mornington Pound Animals group wants to stop cats and dogs being killed and for the shire to increase its efforts to find new homes for strays. The protest comes just weeks before the shire prepares to unveil $900,000 in changes to its new community animal shelter in Watt Rd, Mornington. Cr Colomb, in a prepared statement, said the shire “encourages and promotes responsible pet ownership fostering a greater harmony and co-existence between pet owners and non-pet owners”. She said the Watt Rd pound had been caring for cats, dogs and the occasional stray livestock for more than 30 years. “We are always keen to first re-unite pets in the field through shire rangers. For instance, last year more than 300 pets found wandering the streets were returned home without being impounded, because they were registered and microchipped. “The shelter last year returned more than 800 pets to their owners, usually within 24-36 hours. A further 573 were rescued or adopted by volunteer animal rescue groups.”

Protest organiser Rosy Fischer said the pound should open for at least three hours each day, allowing pet owners and potential adopters to visit without an appointment. She said most animals should be listed for adoption on Petrescue and other media, such as newspapers, libraries and social media. The adoption process should also be made easier. Cr Colomb said the shelter cared for 685 cats and 994 dogs last year, with all animals receiving “immediate

Animals are photographed for identification and listed on the mornpen.vic. gov.au/lostpets web page. “Pets also receive a second microchip scan, and have their eating, toilet and behaviour monitored and recorded, in conjunction with an individual health management plan,” Cr Colomb said. Cr Colomb said the council had spent about $900,000 on the pound, including a bigger “reunite” area; heated

Eyes on revised Pt Nepean master plan Keith Platt keith@mpnews.com.au PARKS Victoria expects to release a master plan in September for the use and development of Point Nepean National Park. The plan will be largely based on one adopted by the Labor state government in 2010 but jettisoned by the Liberal-led Coalition in the lead-up to the 2014 election. The current Labor government reportedly paid at least $1 million in 2015 to buy out a 50-year lease the Coalition had entered into with the privately owned Point Leisure Group for a health and wellness retreat with hot springs, a spa, restaurant, hotel and conference centre. In a 10 February letter to Parks Victoria, Point Leisure Group said it disagreed with a reference to its lapsed lease contained in the draft master plan. “The lease lapsed because we allowed it to lapse as the relevant planning controls were not implemented to facilitate the development. “We agree with many of the recommendations outlined in the [draft] master plan, in particular the suggestion the area should be leased to numerous operators, not one sole tenant. Our original proposal sought a similar outcome for the site with smaller lease footprints, however it was the previous government’s intention to lease the entire space to the one operator which came with responsibilities that should not have been forced upon a single tenant. “We sincerely appreciated the then minister’s repayment of our costs in a very timely manner, however note our financial commitment to the project far exceeded this and demonstrates our intense commitment to see a positive outcome for the future of Point Nepean.� The letter stated Point Leisure Group “remain open and positive to working with the government to see a successful outcome for the area�. Colin Watson, of the Nepean Ratepayers Group, in a submission to Parks Victoria, said “a much simpler way forward [to adopting a new master plan] would be to re-engage with Point Leisure Group and work with them to see if there were any opportunities that they could develop to fine tune their original proposal�. In reviving the 2010 master plan Parks Victoria embarked on a public relations exercise that involved a series of public meetings, inviting comments from the public, “stakeholders� and community groups. Parks has since published a consultation summary report – “an overview

of key themes heard� – based on feedback from the various meetings and submissions. Submissions ranged from individuals to environment, heritage and historical groups as well as Film Victoria (which promotes the use of Point Nepean to filmmakers), the University of Melbourne, and Victorian National Parks Association. One letter pointed out the inadequacy of the “verbal sludge� in the draft and said it had been sent to “Don Watson, of Weasel Words fame, and [we would] not be surprised if it featured prominently in the next version of his book�. Nepean Conservation Group sought the meaning of “sustainable� when applied throughout the draft master plan. Anna Tuechler, a heritage project officer working out of the Department of Premier and Cabinet, warned that “future activities within the Point Nepean National Park may require statutory authorisation under the Aboriginal Heritage Act 2006 (AHA 2006). All of Point Nepean National Park is an area of cultural heritage sensitivity�. “The draft master plan proposes several high impact activities, for example roads and tracks longer than 100 metres, caravan/camping park, jetties and a visitor centre. These activities are likely to trigger a mandatory CHMP [Cultural Heritage Management Plan],� Ms Tuechler stated. “Under the AHA 2006, it is an offence to harm Aboriginal cultural heritage without valid statutory authorisation, whether it is a registered place or not.� In its submission, Mornington Peninsula Shire expressed “overall support� for the revised plan, adding that it should retain its role as the “responsible planning authority� for the national park. The shire’s strategic planning manager, Allan Cowley, said key issues for the shire included the “potential for use by the shire� of the now-unused visitor centre at the entry to Point Nepean; design and management of a jetty “having regard to the difficulty of controlling access by personal water craft�; the need for cooperation between the national park and the shirecontrolled Police Point Park; and the “form and terms� of expressions of interest for commercial uses within the national park. The shire said it wanted to be a member of an “inter-agency reference group� to oversee implementation of the adopted master plan. Friends of Point Nepean National Park said the Mornington Peninsula Planning Scheme was inadequate and

Master plan coming: Point Nepean National Park continues to be a political football, but stability may be in sight. Pictures: Yanni “will not protect the Quarantine Station from inappropriate overdevelopment�. Parks Victoria said about 350 people attended three community information days, with 12 “stakeholder meetings� being held and 82 questionnaires and 33 submissions or letters received. “There was broad support for the draft master plan, with some key areas requiring further attention. The planning team is currently working through the important issues raised during the consultation,� a statement issued by Parks Victoria said. “We anticipate the final master plan will be available from September

2017, at which time further details and notifications will be sent.� Royal Historical Society of Victoria said it backed Nepean Historical Society’s proposal for an advisory committee to provide independent advice to Parks Victoria management on Point Nepean’s cultural and historic heritage. “However, we have some concerns that the proposals for visitor experience of the Quarantine Station precinct do not sufficiently emphasise the functional connections between the buildings and hence the overall unity of the site historically,� Judith Smart, of the society’s heritage committee, stated. Nepean Historical Society’s submis-

sion dealt mainly with the national park’s Quarantine Station precinct and urged the creation of a “comprehensible walking tour that traces the immigrant story from the arrival jetty through disinfection to accommodation and messes to isolation hospital, morgue and cemetery, irrespective of what adaptive re-use is assigned to each of the single Quarantine buildings on the route�. Mornington Peninsula branch of The Greens said the draft plan made no allowance for the effects of climate change. Details: www.parks.vic.gov.au/ pointnepeanplan

Andrew Palmer said his footballing community was “excited” about the recent upgrades. “What the shire has provided far exceeded our wishes,” he said. “With the upgraded rooms and shower facilities we can now pursue with confidence the implementation of women’s football at a senior level.” The pavilion policy has also seen improvements at Dromana, Mt Martha’s Ferrero Recreation Reserve and Rye’s RJ Rowley Reserve. The mayor Cr Bev Colomb said

female participation in sports was “on the rise”. “Through our sports strategies we are working hard to update facilities for all to enjoy,” she said. Cr Julie Edge said the shire was determined to make a change for women’s sport across the peninsula. “This change room investment in Somerville, as well as others across our townships, will ensure we continue to give female sporting enthusiasts much-needed and required facilities.”

Group still waiting on shire’s FOI answers Stephen Taylor steve@mpnews.com.au NO response has been received to a freedom-of-information (FOI) request for information on the running of the Mornington Peninsula Community Animal Shelter in Watt Rd, Mornington. The FOI – launched by the Save

Mornington Pound Animals on 19 June (FOI bill stuns animal advocates, The News, 13/6/17) – requests details about animals held at the shelter over the 12 months to January; vets’ bills for euthanising animals; where pets have been rehoused; how many cats and dogs are registered with the shire; the fate of 54 cats unaccounted for, and the shelter’s budget. The group was told in a letter by the

shire’s FOI officer Kate McNab that “the documents being sought are not in the public interest …” and that access charges were applicable. Also, that much of the information was “already publicly available” through community and annual reports. “Specific details of the requested documents … with respect to requesting impound numbers is not seen to be

in line with general public interest as this information would be irrelevant … to the general public.” Because of this the shire told the group it wanted $1108 for what Ms McNab estimated was 40-53 hours of research. The group launched a Go-Fund Me campaign to raise the money for the FOI through public subscriptions. Half the amount – $554.10 – was

handed over before the shire agreed to begin the FOI search. Ms Fischer said: “I think it is an absolute disgrace that we have to do it to find out something that should be freely available to the public. “As a ratepayer, I want to know what has happened to animals at this pound and I am very dubious re the statistics.”

Timor–Leste friends and election observers MEMBERS of Mornington Peninsula Friends of Lospalos have joined an Australian delegation of observers of Timor-Leste’s parliamentary elections this month. It will be the fourth election since the nation’s independence in May 2002. Delegates have been invited by the Timor-Leste government. The 65 members of the national parliament are elected from a single nationwide constituency. Political parties are required to have a woman in at least every third position on their lists. The Friends group was founded in 2000 and formed a “sister city” relationship with Lospalos, a city of about 17,000 that is 250km east of the capital Dili. Peninsula delegates, who are paying their own way, attended a briefing by Australian contingent leader Professor Damien Kingsbury at St Kilda Town Hall. Mornington Peninsula Shire Council’s representative on the Friends

group, Cr Hugh Fraser, said TimorLeste (previously East Timor) lost a sixth of its population during the Indonesian occupation. “This will be the first election not conducted under United Nations supervision,” he said. Australian volunteer election observers would be the largest international group, as had happened at previous elections. Former shire councillor Tim Rodgers, chairman of the Friends group, said it had “enjoyed a long and happy relationship of exchange visits and working with Lospalos local government Administrators and the Friendship Commission to deliver projects in Lospalos that the community has identified as beneficial, sustainable and achievable”. He said the group had raised more than $100,000 over the past three years for projects.

THE future of the Western Port Biosphere Foundation has been strengthened with a decision by Frankston Council to again become a financial member. Earlier this year the foundation was facing closure as money ran out. However, the state government stepped in with $20,000 from the Department of Environment, Land, Water and Planning “to assist us in working through our cash flow issuesâ€?, executive officer of the biosphere Cecelia Witton said in an editorial in the July edition of foundation’s The Connector newsletter. “We welcome [the decision by Frankston Council] and look forward to working to strengthen our relationship with Frankston City Council and our other biosphere councils,â€? Ms Witton stated. The biosphere’s Growing Connections Project ended on 30 June and Ms Witton said a final report would be complete by mid-August. She said recent foundation activities had included a planting day with Downs Estate Community Group on a reserve north of Seaford Wetlands. The hundreds of trees and shrubs would help protect the wetlands and create a biolink across the north of the site. Ms Witton said 120 passengers had joined three bus tours with the Bunurong Land Council “which focused on the landscapes of Casey and Cardinia, and Bass Coast ‌ learning a little about our local Indigenous culture and some of the important sites for the Indigenous community and how these were usedâ€?. The third annual Western Port Biosphere Biodiversity Forum on 30 June was attended by about 100 people from government agencies, community groups, and the public. Keynote speaker Vanessa Craigie, policy officer from DELWP, outlined the new statewide biodiversity plan “and how we can all get

involved in delivering the desired outcomes�, Ms Witton said. With Frankston’s continued absence from the biosphere, the remaining four members – Mornington Peninsula, Bass Coast, Cardinia, and Casey councils – were earlier this year forced bailed out the ailing organisation, which would have run out of money by April. At that stage Ms Witton said the biosphere foundation had survived a “hectic� few months. In a bid to secure future funding, a memorandum of understanding was drawn up between the biosphere and the four remaining member councils. Frankston had withdrawn its $20,000 annual commitment four years previously, adding to the biosphere’s financial woes. Ms Witton told an extraordinary general meeting in January that the organisation was running out of money before a vote was taken to give the board of directors the power to wind up the “company�. That option was not needed. The 2142-square kilometre Mornington Peninsula and Western Port Biosphere Reserve – one of 14 in Australia – includes five local government areas and French Island. Listed under the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organisation (UNESCO) “Man and the Biosphere� program, it includes national and marine parks, rural agriculture and urban growth areas. Western Port is also listed under the Ramsar Convention on Wetlands of International significance. Biospheres are described as being “sites of excellence that seek to reconcile conservation of biological and cultural diversity and economic and social development through partnerships between people and nature�. Although they have no statutory powers, biospheres are seen as being “ideal learning sites to test and demonstrate innovative approaches to sustainable development and conservation on a regional scale�.

Dream team: Frankston Hospital associate professor David Langton and chief scientist Kim Gooey at the hospital’s sleep laboratory. Picture: Gary Sissons

Hospital in deep on sleep A MEDICAL specialist who helps people with potentially life-threatening sleep conditions has been named as an OAM in the Queen’s Birthday Honours List last month. Associate professor David Langton received the honour for service to thoracic and sleep medicine. He said he regarded the Medal of the Order to be recognition of a team effort at Frankston Hospital to improve treatment for patients. The 59-year-old said he had seen many changes that have improved medical services since he first arrived at the hospital 30 years ago. “I have been very lucky to see an enormous transition�, he said. “For me, it’s a little bit like seeing a child growing up.� As the hospital’s first full-time physician. He was appointed to set up and run the intensive care unit. “At that stage, it was a fairly small community hospital but it needed a good intensive care unit to service the emergency department and to create the ability for the hospital to take on more advanced

surgery.� After about 12 years of running the ICU he “was able to take on more things in the hospital� including the establishment of a sleep laboratory in 1995. “Sleep medicine is quite a new discipline, probably only 30 or 40 years old, and it’s only in that period of time that people have recognised the presence of stopping breathing during sleep and sleep apnoea,� he said. The way to diagnose it is to monitor a patient overnight while they’re asleep and monitor their breathing.� General practitioners in Frankston and the Mornington Peninsula refer patients to be diagnosed in the sleep lab that is open seven nights a week. Of those referred, the associate professor says “about a third have relatively severe sleep apnea, one-third have a milder disease that can be managed and about one-third don’t have anything at all�. Severe sleep apnea can ultimately cause cardiovascular heart disease, heart attacks and strokes if not diagnosed and treated. Neil Walker


Quilts bring comfort to those who served Stephen Taylor steve@mpnews.com.au THE gift of a quilt crafted by Bev Young, of Mornington Peninsula Patchworkers, has made a returned serviceman pleased and proud. The garment, known as a Quilt of Valour, was presented to ex-serviceman Tom Jones, 95, by Chelsea RSL president Michael Weissefeld and Wyn Roper, president of Quilters of Valour Australia. The organisation started in 2010 to “honour those affected by their service to Australia”. So far, more than 1000 quilts have been presented to ex-service personnel, each unique item taking many hours to craft by quilters. The message is that the quilts “wrap the wounded in love, care and healing”. Ms Young, who makes the quilts at her home at Capel Sound, is one of up to 100 quilters using their skills to craft the colourful garments out of cotton and wool/polyester. They meet monthly at the hall in Wilsons Rd, Mornington, to pick up donated fabric and receive orders for quilts. The former dressmaker uses an industrial machine and takes three or four days to craft her quilts, using “colours that men like” such as greens, browns and yellows. She draws inspiration for the work from her late husband, Harry, who served in the CMF but died two and half years ago. “I’m sure he would love me making them,” she said. “As long as I can keep making them I will.” Ms Roper said many returned sol-

SES wants members HASTINGS SES is looking for new members and will hold a recruitment evening at 7pm, 27 Thursday. The unit, part of the state’s response agency for floods, storms, earthquakes, landslides and tsunamis, trains volunteers in such things as rescues, using a chainsaw, first aid, land searches and securing a roof in a storm. The Hastings unit is at 2144 Frankston-Flinders Rd, Hastings. Training sessions are 7pm Mondays. Those attending the recruitment night can email hastings@ses.vic.gov. au as an expression of interest or just turn up. The unit’s response area covers Somerville, Tyabb, Hastings, Mornington, Mt Martha, Moorooduc, Bittern, Cribb Point, Tuerong, Merricks, Balnarring and Somers.

diers – especially those who served in Vietnam and the Middle East – suffered trauma and despair as a result of their treatment or tortuous memories. These people especially value the comfort and solace of the quilts. Mr Jones – a Carrum and Chelsea resident for 47 years – is one. The former British Army soldier was captured by the Japanese in Java in 1940 and spent four years as a prisoner-of-war in Japan.

Like so many veterans he made a new life for himself: he settled in Australia, married and raised a family, and “got on with it” despite varying degrees of unease and disquiet over his past service. A chance meeting with Quilters of Valour member Dorothy Meadows at the Chelsea shops helped him turn a corner when she realised he needed support while caring for daughter Linda

and granddaughter Tracey Lee. Just knowing that people appreciate and respect his former life is comforting. “I’ve had a few kicks in the bum – nothing like this,” he said. “It really means a lot to me.” Tracey Lee told the gathering at the quilt presentation: “I can’t thank you all enough. Tom is my grandad and he is very honoured and thrilled: you all made his day.”

A TOILET at Arthur’s Seat has won the World’s Most Accessible Toilet award. Opened in January, the toilet is designed to meet many needs - tourists with disabilities, those with mobility limitations, visitors with young children, older people and tourists from culturally diverse backgrounds. It also includes an Asian squat toilet. The award judge described the toilet as being “beautifully designed, thoroughly functional, modern and inclusive; a highly impressive addition to the destination experience. I have never seen anything quite like this accessible toilet”. The awards are based on research by co-founders of MyTravelResearch. com Carolyn Childs and Bronwyn White.

We’re paying more and more for less and less PLANNING and population issues are back in the spotlight after the state government changed planning laws to allow three-storey houses to be built in the region, sparking concern about overdevelopment. Frankston-based sociologist and author Sheila Newman sounds a warning about unrestricted population growth, land prices and development of food production land. By Sheila Newman AS a fig leaf response to growing unrest about exponential population growth, governments and developers are now suggesting “decentralisation” is the cure for all that ails us from overpopulation. The current plan to “create” (mostly via massive immigration) eight new cities between Melbourne, Canberra and Sydney is a foretaste of the growth lobby’s desire to aim for a population of 100 million in Australia and perhaps 50 major cities within 80 to 100 years. This super growth would be financed entirely by speculating on land costs, with massive profits falling mostly to a few already obscenely rich developers. However, as usual the growth lobby conveniently disregards water, agriculture, and natural and resource environmental costs. Losing land in the countryside to more houses, schools, hospitals, shopping centres and more is no less significant than it is in our current peri-urban areas. As for ongoing adjustments to the urban growth boundary, rezoning rural land to urban residential is threatening Melbourne’s peri-urban food bowl – Werribee, Yarra Valley, Mornington Peninsula, Casey-Cardinia. Up to 50 per cent of Australia’s vegetables are grown on the urban fringe of Melbourne and 17 per cent of Victorian fruit. Greater than 80 per cent of some

types of fruit and vegetables are produced. Production is at $1.3-1.6 billion a year, and supports 6000 jobs. But once converted to housing, the land and jobs are lost forever, entrenching a reliance on imported foods. Since the Menzies government era, the privatisation of land production has evolved into a system of packing more and more people into smaller and smaller areas. It multiplies the dollar value of the land, while massively diminishing the land per person. So most of us pay more and more for less and less. Meanwhile a minority profit obscenely from the growing misery of their fellow citizens and residents. This is essentially what drives the policies for mass immigration in Australia. The costs to business are horrendous (unless they are corporations that invest in land and mortgages). For instance, manufacturers have to pay for their own accommodation, for their business premises, and for salaries that will permit their employees to afford rent or mortgages. These costs ruin many businesses and make us globally uncompetitive since our land, housing and rent costs are among the highest in the world. Abolition of state industrial award systems, redefinition of most state CBDs as “regions in need of immigration”, and Prime Minister John Howard’s use of the Corporations clause in the Constitution means it is

now possible, for the first time since Federation, to import cheap labour to undermine Australian wages. Employers can exploit cheap imported labour, but labour must pay very high rent and mortgages, pitting employers against workers and citizens against citizens. It’s beginning to feel like a return to Dickensian living conditions or feudalism will be the ultimate outcome. Meanwhile, these unreasonable, anti-social land costs (and the population growth-associated inflation of water and power costs) make the pension and welfare system unaffordable, but the problem is then blamed on “dependency ratios” – too many unemployed people, too many old

people, etc. However, if we greatly reduced invited economic immigration (which all the states advertise for – see Victoria’s www.liveinvictoria.vic.gov.au), pensions would be adequate to live on and could possibly even be reduced, and working people would not have to enslave themselves to life-long mortgages. It would also be relatively affordable to start manufacturing businesses and employ people. Twenty-five years ago, when I became worried about population growth in Australia, the plight of wildlife and the loss of green and wild spaces were accepted. Empathy for the environment is disappearing under the walls of masonry and concrete paving of our

once rural areas. As much as it pains me, it is understandable to lose empathy for the environment when there isn’t much left to empathise with. It’s as if wildlife is completely off the radar, and caring about wildlife habitat is just an indulgent wistful pastime. The extremes to which we are now pushed socio-economically and the urbanisation of our values have reinforced our human-centric behaviours – and it is very depressing. Presently, those who hope to protect where we live are relying on a “community engagement” model that is past its use-by date. Previously, when a development was announced, we could have our say about it. Sometimes we even managed to stop outrageous proposals – or at least win major concessions. However, the latest proposed changes to the Victorian Planning Scheme, and many that have already occurred while we have been asleep at the wheel, will completely strip away any rights or tools we thought we had to protect our homes and amenity. The ground has shifted under us so we need, somehow, to be more proactive. A good place to start could be a residents’ bill of rights.  Sheila Newman is an evolutionary sociologist and editor of articles on energy, population, land use planning, and resources as well as a news site called candobetter.net. Her books include The Final Energy Crisis (Pluto, UK) and the Demography, Territory and Law series (Countershock Press) on ecological population systems and political outcomes.

Support needed to stop state’s planning changes The support of residents and property owners is required to stop 11-metre high, multiple three-storey developments from being built and becoming the norm in many areas on the Mornington Peninsula. Mornington Peninsula Shire Council is asking for support to oppose the state government’s residential planning changes (“Shire call-up against planning changes”, The News, 4/7/17). Under the changes, suddenly without warning, property owners and residents may find that they will loose their views or have an ugly development overlooking their back yards. They may not have to be notified or be able to object, and this is deplorable when they have already had to comply with the previous height limits. It will also be a major setback for many of the peninsula’s areas and townships, which are different to Melbourne’s urban development because of the views to the bays, ocean and countryside, which provide a much-needed change to the densely populated, boring and concreted inner suburbs. It is why we live here and why thousands of tourists, day visitors and holidaymakers come to the area. The economy of the peninsula is heavily reliant on this difference. Support the council and oppose the changes by completing the petition at “Become a Peninsula Protector” on the Peninsula Speaks website: www.peninsulaspeaks.org or email: info@ peninsulaspeaks.org.au Alan Nelsen, McCrae Action Group

Freeway noise, safety I refer to VicRoads’ plans to install wire safety barriers along Mornington Peninsula Freeway from Mt Martha to Rosebud. While I welcome this safety initiative, VicRoads’ justification for the project is the high number of crashes, which is the result of the huge increase in traffic along this section of the freeway. This is the very reason we need noise barriers instead along the freeway and an overpass at Jetty Rd, Rosebud. VicRoads’ testing has confirmed over many years that noise levels are above the acceptable level. I urge the state government to accept its own agency’s advice and install the noise barriers as part of the wire safety barrier upgrade to the freeway as well as addressing the urgent need for an overpass at Jetty Rd. Martin Dixon, MP for Nepean

Unionised government Have you ever wondered why the Andrews state government will not distance itself from the CFMEU, no matter how rude, crude and unattractive the union is? Figures from the Australian Electoral Commission give the answer: this union has donated $3.027 million to the Victorian Labor Party

since 1988, $627,154 in the past two years alone. This state (called the People’s Republic of Victoria by some) has a government in thrall to its union masters. Think about it. Peter Grey, Rye

Waiting for the bus In 2009 politician Johan Scheffer claimed the Brumby Labor government’s transport plan was good for the Mornington Peninsula. Sure, we have a rail line to Hastings and Stony Point (which we had anyway) and the freeway to bypass Frankston, but nothing has changed for the vast majority of peninsula residents. It still takes 75 minutes by bus from Rye to Frankston; still no express bus service; still not enough buses and long, long waits; and still the fact one must own a car to get anywhere at a reasonable time. Over the years there have been many plans by both [major party] governments that have all amounted to sycophantic ramblings. I go back to the early 1940s, when it took 80 minutes from Frankston train station to Rye. If politicians really cared about us they could have a second, faster bus service with stops at Blairgowrie, Rye, Tootgarook, Rosebud and Dromana, and then express to Frankston, leaving Portsea every hour, ditto ex-Frankston. “Waiting for the spark from heaven to fall” (Matthew Arnold).

Car runs off road and into tree A SPEEDING car ran off the Mornington Peninsula Freeway at Dromana, 7am, Wednesday 12 July, and hit a tree. Sergeant Mark Sims, of Somerville Highway Patrol, said the Holden Commodore was estimated by a witness to be travelling at 115kph when the driver lost control after passing another car and skidded off the road. He and a male passenger are in their early 20s. The driver was trapped in the car until released by emergency services crews. He was taken to the Royal Melbourne Hospital by Air Ambulance. His passenger, suffering head, shoulder and knee injuries, was taken to The Alfred Hospital by road. Their conditions were not known Friday af-

ternoon. The freeway was blocked for Rosebudbound traffic at the Arthurs Seat exit.

OBITUARY

Vale Grevis Howe - physicist, community contributor, family man and lawn bowler By Peter McCullough GREVIS Howe and his wife Marj retired to Balnarring in 1988. Over the years he made a significant contribution to the Balnarring community and became a highly-respected citizen. Grevis passed away on 27 June at the age of 91. The chapel at Baxter Village was packed as over 250 family and friends attended the funeral which was held on 4 July with the Reverend Bernard Thomas officiating. The eulogy was given by Grevis’ son, Peter, supported by his sisters Liz Porter and Jenny Fisher. This obituary is based on Peter’s eulogy. *** Grevis John Howe was born on 28 January, 1926, to Rene and William Howe, and grew up in Camberwell with his younger brother Alwyn. He attended Canterbury State School and Trinity Grammar School, then studied science at the University of Melbourne , majoring in mathematics and physics. He was employed as a tutor at the Mildura campus of the university and was studying for higher degrees in physics when, in 1949, his father died and he had to return to Melbourne and help support the family. In 1950 Grevis became the first physicist to be employed by Australian Paper Manufacturers (APM), and was responsible for overseeing the instruments and gauges involved with paper making. He made a strong impression at APM and they supported him in his attempt to gain the prestigious Fulbright Scholarship at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology. Although he narrowly missed the scholarship, there was a consolation prize waiting for Grevis on his return from Boston: he met Marjorie Neville on the company bus in 1951. They were married on 24 April, 1954 at St. Andrews, Gardiner; they re-enacted the ceremony on their 60th wedding anniversary in 2014. Grevis and Marj moved with APM to Sydney, where Liz and Jenny were born, and then to Tasmania where Peter was born, before returning to the Fairfield Mill where Grevis was appointed head of the Instrumentation Department. He and Marj built a house at Syndal, a new suburb surrounded by orchards, before moving to Hawthorn in 1968 to allow the family better access to secondary schools. Grevis’ next move was to the Head Office of APM where, because

of his meticulous attention to detail, he was generally referred to as Grievous Bodily Harm, or “Mr. Harm� for short. After 37 continuous years at APM, Grevis retired in 1986. Two years later the Hawthorn home was sold and the Howes retired to Balnarring where they resided until approximately four years ago when they moved to Baxter Village. Grevis had many interests outside work. He was a Kings Scout and a scout leader for more than 30 years, generating enthusiasm and increased membership wherever he was involved. He joined the Trinity Grammarians Lodge in 1950 and remained committed to freemasonry for the ensuing 66 years. He had a lifetime of involvement in the church, serving as an elder of Syndal Presbyterian, Toorak Uniting and Balnarring Uniting where, on occasions when the minister was unavailable, he would conduct the Sunday service. Grevis’ so-called retirement was filled with consultancy work for APM, as well as enthusiastic involvement in the

Uniting Church, Balnarring Bowling Club. Balnarring Lodge and Balnarring Probus Club, including writing histories of both the church and the lodge. Sport played a significant role in Grevis’ life. At school and university he played hockey, then at the age of 40 he took up lawn bowls. He played for Glenferrie Hill for almost 20 years. At Balnarring he was in the top pennant team for 20 consecutive years, won back-to-back Haywood shields for the best club pennant player in 2009-2010, and was club champion in singles, pairs and mixed pairs a total of seven times. He served as club president on two occasions, was secretary three times, wrote the club history, was a nationally accredited bowls coach and umpire, and in 2008 received the RVBA order of merit. He continued playing bowls at Baxter until early this year, cranky that with knee and vision problems his form was starting to slip. Grevis’ other sporting passion was Hawthorn. He became a member of the Hawks in 1936 and supported

them faithfully when they were belted weekly in the ‘40’s and ‘50’s, but rejoicing in their recent successes. In the early years the Glenferrie Oval was walking distance from home and Grevis would make the journey, complete with a 10 year old travel bag always containing the same contents: a giant Tupperware container including sandwiches, fruit cake and apples; the thermos; a cushion; and the rug. Even as recently as last year Jen and Mark made the annual pilgrimage with Grevis and Marj to see the Hawks in Launceston. Throughout it all, Grevis remained a crotchety supporter in the Tommy Hafey mould: “Why are they mucking around with handball and going backwards? Why don’t they just kick it?� Those who knew Grevis will recall his prodigious memory. He could recall the number plates of every car the family ever had as well as those of family friends. The latter were occasionally baffled when he addressed them not by name but by their registration number: “ Ah, greetings BIX 169.� Physics remained his great love and many would have received what they thought was a letter from Grevis, only to find that the envelope contained a page carefully chosen but less carefully torn from the Physics Bulletin. While Grevis’ intellect may have been apparent on most occasions, this seemed to abandon him when, on the rare occasion when Marj was absent, he would venture into the kitchen. His attempt to heat a McCain frozen pizza but neglecting to remove

the plastic wrap has become part of family folk lore. Even with all his activities Grevis was fond of his garden, and he and Marj were extensive travellers. Perhaps most important of all was the time they both spent with the family; they were incredibly proud of their children (Liz, Jenny and Peter), their partners (Ian, Mark and Fran), grandchildren (Jodie, James, Richard, Tom, Ed, Andrew, Daniel, Elsie and Gemma) and great grandson ( Jake ). Family get-togethers were frequent and special occasions. The most recent of these was on Anzac Day of this year when both Grevis and Marj were in good health and good form. As Peter pointed out in his eulogy, life can be very fragile; in the two months that have passed since Anzac Day Grevis was first diagnosed with inoperable cancer and has now passed away while Marj has suffered a severe stroke which meant that her attendance at the funeral required both an enormous physical and emotional effort. Grevis Howe’s life was one of service to the community. He was motivated by a deeply held conviction that all people should be treated fairly. His daughter-in-law Fran expressed this beautifully in a card she wrote to him in the evening of his life: “People of all ages, religions and cultures need to feel connected, to feel valued and to be treated with respect. You, Grevis, can leave this earth knowing that you have done your bit.�

100 YEARS AGO THIS WEEK...

Mr Leadbetter opens fish shop in Frankston Compiled by Cameron McCullough MR C. J. Leadbetter notifies in another column that he intends opening a fish shop in Frankston on Saturday next and will keep a constant supply of fish, &c. Customers waited on twice a week. *** THE fortnightly Red Cross Social held at Tyabb July 14th was as usual a great success and favoured with fine weather. The evening opened with a short program, followed by competition which caused great amusement then dancing and supper. The musical items were:– Pianoforte duet, Mr and Miss Steer; song, Mr A Denham; song, Mrs Woodhouse; song, Mr Russell Denham; song, Mrs Roe; song, Miss Freda Denham. Miss Lily Slocombe and Mr Russell Denham acted as accompanists and Mr G. Gibson provided music for the dance. The takings were about £2 2s. *** WORD was received from the Red Cross Central Depot during the week urging that there should be no slackening in making the particular garment that Tyabb make a specialty of. At the Central Depot they find great difficulty in keeping up the supply of these garments, so all workers are asked to continue as before without slackening. *** THE 19th Annual Public Meeting of the Tyabb Hall was held June 4th ‘17. The chairman R. Maclaurin occupied the chair. The minutes of the previous public meeting were read and adopted. The annual report was read and the balance sheet submitted showing a

credit balance of £7 10s. The following officers were elected:–K - W. Slocombe was reelected secretary at a salary of £2 2s. R. Mair re-elected treasurer at a salary of 10/6 and G. T. Slocombe caretaker £10. Members of committee to fill vacancy caused by effluxion of time:–R. Maclaurin, F. A. Oates. W. J. Clark, J. Bake and Cr. W. Longmuir to fill vacancies caused by non attendance of members. *** THE following letter of thanks to those who so kindly helped to make the concert held at Langwarrin in aid of the funds of the War Relief Fund of the Education Department has been received by the Head Teacher and has been handed to us for publication.– Dear Miss Gillard.– would you be good enough to convey to all the workers in connection with your recent effort on behalf of the British Red Cross Appeal, the best appreciation of the Central Executive. Those who remain at home can do much for the men behind the firing line, and you can feel assured that your co-operation does much to help strengthen the supplies in this most noble cause. With best wishes, on behalf of the Central Executive, I am, yours faithfully, May Cox, Organizing Secretary. *** A CHEQUE for £3 15s was handed to the “Wattle” Club this week, from the local Red Cross society. This sum had been obtained for entertaining soldiers and as the “Wattle” Club were entertaining soldiers so often, it was decided by the Red Cross

to hand their money over to the Club. A cheque for £2 2s was also received from Mr C. Tait. These donations are highly appreciated. *** THE ‘Wattle’ Club will hold their second anniversary plain and fancy dress ball on Wednesday next, when every thing points to its being even more successful than last year’s function. Good prizes are offered and Di Gigg’s band has been engaged. *** WORK sent in from Mt Eliza Red Cross Branch to the Frankston Red Cross year ending July 17th 1917 – 20 shirts, 12 pillow cases. 6 suits pyjamas, 13 scarves, 4 prs mittens, 24 prs socks, 6 prs bed socks, 1 washer, 2 undershirts. *** Frankston Court of. Petty Sessions. Monday, July 9th, 1917. Before Messrs Williams, Oates Grant and Crawford J’s.P. TRAVELLING WITHOUT A TICKET. Charles W. Risely of Crib Point was charged by Joseph Dean, a railway officer, with travelling by rail, between Melbourne and Frankston, on 12th May last, without having ticket entitling him to do so. Defendant pleaded not guilty. Porter Ward, of Frankston, deposed that Risely, when asked for his ticket, denied that he had travelled by train, and afterwards, gave a wrong name. He had given considerable trouble. Defendant said he paid his fare to Carrum, but came to Frankston as it was raining; he had lost his ticket at Carrum; he admitted giving a wrong name.

The Bench held the charge proved and fined defendant 20s with 12s 6d costs. DISPUTED DEBT CLAIM. Albert Shannon sued John Bedcock for £7 17s 6d on account of groceries etc sold and delivered. Mr Cook appeared for complainant in the absence of Mr Utber. Defendant, who conducted his own case claimed that he had already paid part of the amount claimed but was unable to produce receipts bearing out his assertion. As defendant is very deaf, great difficulty was experienced by the Bench and Court officials in dealing with the case. Albert Shannon and William Hyland gave evidence in support of the claim. Defendant and his daughter and son contended that certain amounts had been paid off but they had not received receipts. The PM said that in the absence of receipts no notice could be taken of the defence. Order for the full amount with 16s 6d costs, in default distress. CRUELTY TO ANIMALS. Const. E. C. Ryan charged Guy Gellibrand Jennings, of Seaford, with “that at Seaford, between the month of December 1916 and the 6th day of June 1917, he did act towards a certain animal, to wit, a cow, in a manner involving cruelty, contrary to the Police Offences Act 1615”. Mr Cook, Mornington, conducted the prosecution for the Animals Protection Society. Defendant pleaded not guilty and conducted his own case. Mr Cook informed the Court that

about last Xmas one of defendant’s cows fell off a bridge and broke her hind leg, at the hock. Defendant kept the animal, which was hopelessly injured, for six months in an open paddock, in an endeavour to fatten her and sell her to a butcher. On June 3rd, Sgt. Bennett, of Moonee Ponds, who was on leave at Seaford, noticed the injured cow which was hopping about endeavouring to graze. The animal was in a very emaciated condition and fell down several times. The Sergeant told defendant to destroy her. On 6th of June Const. Ryan and Inspector Wilmott, of the Animals Protection Society, inspected the cow. The Constable shot the cow with his revolver. Counsel contended that it was gross cruelty to keep the beast alive in her crippled state. Sergt. Bennett, Inspector Wilmott and Const. Ryan gave evidence. The constable stated that defendant was most courteous to him and gave him every assistance. Defendant stated that he made every effort to cure the cow and had fed and watered her constantly. This was admitted by the prosecution. The P.M. said that a case of a cruelty had been proved. It was not a bad case. Defendant had done his best according to his ideas but it was cruel to keep the cow alive at all, however the penalty would be a light one. Fined 10s with £2 10s costs. *** From the pages of the Mornington Standard, 21 July 1917

THE MEANING OF EXISTENCE... AND OTHER SHORT STORIES

Smile! Camera catastrophes and other conundrums By Stuart McCullough TALK about unlucky. You’d think that I’d broken a mirror while walking underneath a ladder, cutting a cake during which I touched the plate with the knife just as a black cat stumbled across my path. I’m talking seriously unfortunate. Indeed, fortune has not smiled upon me so much as it has bared its bloody fangs in my direction. The evidence is plain – I am never going to be accused of being conventionally handsome. Or unconventionally handsome, for that matter. Fact is, the wind changed and this is the face I’m stuck with. I’ve never been one to gaze into mirrors. It’s not that I’m shy; it’s more that I just don’t trust the guy I see in there. He’s kinda funny looking. For that reason, I’ve always avoided Facebook because it focusses on a part of my anatomy that I’d much sooner ignore. That said, my knuckles are (I believe) exquisite, and it’s a tragedy that there’s no ‘Knucklebook’ to which I can flock and display my wares to virtual friends. Then there’s the index finger on my left hand which, according to consensus, is truly a thing of beauty to which songs should be sung and sonnets devoted. But index fingers don’t really get the recognition they deserve. That’s because in this somewhat shallow world, it’s all about the face. Some people are photogenic. I, on the other hand, am photo allergic. I had, for a time, hoped that the appalling photos were not the inevitable result of my own physical features but the product of extremely poor photography. It is generally believed within my family that my father is an appalling photographer. Lighting, composition and atmosphere – all these things were con-

PAGE 32

sidered dispensable when my father was in charge of the camera. By far and away it was the fact of the photo that mattered; whether it was any good to look at was largely irrelevant.

Western Port News 18 July 2017

While undoubtedly a ‘point and shoot’ kind of photographer, my father could also be quite particular. For years, he insisted on taking pictures at family functions, by standing at the

head of the table and squeezing the button. Year after year, he chose the exact same vantage point, yielding the same unsatisfactory results. Some years, we were sitting in the same seats, yielding a spooky ‘time lapse’ sense to his photos. He also mastered the elusive art of the ‘red eye’. Somehow his pictures always succeeded in giving someone demonically crimson eyes, making them look not so much like a member of the family sitting down to dinner as much as Satan’s spawn taking a quick breather while on the hunt for souls to collect. My father doesn’t do casual. Not for him the candid snap or picture in which the subject is blissfully unaware that they’re being captured for posterity. Rather, he preferred to have us standing together in a group, our bowl haircuts glistening in the sun as he somewhat forlornly asked us to smile. My father has strong views about lighting. In particular, he believes that the best photos are taken when the sun’s rays are lighting the face of his subjects. That, in turn, meant that we had to stand; gazing into an unforgiving, hostile glowing orb while being told not to squint. To this day, I can barely stand direct sunlight. I have a lot of nephews and nieces. I may be biased but, without exception, I think they’re all very good looking. And, unlike me, they’re all extremely comfortable in front of a camera. I think that kids today get a lot more practice when it comes to getting their photo taken. They’re used to it. Once, getting your photo taken was a special event. I look at pictures of my great grandparents and you can tell it was a big deal – they dressed up in suits and gowns and posed as if sitting for an oil

painting. Two generations later and I was getting my picture taken at school while wearing my very best baby blue skivvy. Things move quickly. Phones, in particular, have changed everything. That you can now take a photo whenever you like is both a huge step forward and a leap backwards at the same time. You can, I think, overdo these things somewhat. But my nephews and nieces have started to fight back. Whenever we have a family function, we always make sure to try and take the most alarming picture of ourselves that we can without actually breaking the camera lens. It takes a lot of effort. It’s a group shot. Rather than have someone stand at the head of the table, we try and squeeze in to frame and pull the most amazing faces that we can. The results speak for themselves. It’s often said that a picture says a thousand words and, mostly, these pictures serve as fair warning to the general public not to cross us. We look so frightening that, frankly, even I would cross the road to avoid one of our number. Somewhat unwisely, I divulged the security code for my phone to my five year old nephew. It’s fair to say that he has absolutely gone to town. It’s common place for me to find a whole bunch of new pictures of him pulling all kinds of silly faces. One day, I’m hoping one of them turns up on his passport. Whenever I see photos of me with my nephews and nieces, I forget for a moment that I’m cursed with an un-photogenic face. Instead, I just feel lucky. Now just say ‘cheese’…. stuart@stuartmccullough.com

Things need to change – Murphy PENINSULA LEAGUE

By Toe Punt SEAFORD coach Ben Murphy will look to continue to “change things up” at training following another disappointing loss on Saturday in MPNFL Peninsula Division. The Tigers have dropped off the face of the earth in the past six weeks after getting away to a terrific start this season. On Saturday at home it suffered perhaps its worse loss of the season, an eight goal thrashing at the hands of lowly-placed Mornington. Seaford went through a heavy training load for a period but that ceased three weeks ago, leaving Murphy to say that it had nothing to do with his team’s recent form. “We’ve just fallen right away,” Murphy said. “Our confidence is down and I just can’t put my finger on it. Like Paul Roos said, you can’t buy confidence from a shop. “Some of our more senior players are making some uncharacteristic mistakes, such as dropping uncontested marks. When your confidence is down, these things happen and collectively we need to get ourselves out of it. “We’ve got a few injuries sure but it doesn’t justify simple mistakes and our overall form. “Our game plan and structures haven’t changed drastically – maybe that’s what we need to do? “This competition is unforgiving and every team goes in every week thinking they are a chance to win. Mornington would have looked at our performance last week and on the back of a big win themselves, would have come here on Saturday giving themselves every

chance. “Take nothing away from Mornington. We all know they are hard to stop when their tails are up and they certainly got away from us in the third quarter

and we couldn’t stop them. “We’ll just front up again on Tuesday night (training) and plan for this weekend’s game (against Frankston YCW),” Murphy said.

Broden Bird booted seven goals for the Dogs while Warwick Miller and Emilio Bitters shone. Despite the loss, Seaford remains in the top five, a game clear of Mt Eliza. The Redlegs failed its second big test in as many weeks when it was thrashed by Bonbeach at Shark Park. Coming off a horrible loss against Frankston YCW the week before, the Redlegs would have been looking for some redemption on Saturday, however, they were never in the contest. The Sharks too were coming off two horrible losses and needed to make a statement. They did, jumping out of the blocks with 10 scoring shots to five in the opening quarter and claiming a 28-point lead at the halfway point of the match. The final margin was 25 points after Mt Eliza kicked six goals to four in the last quarter. Owen Hulett bagged five for the winners and Jackson Casey and Dylan Jones were both at their best through the middle of the ground. In better news for the Redlegs, Matt Lillie was back in the reserves after quite a lay-off. The big question for Pines on Saturday against Frankston YCW was how were they going to go without star forward and the competition’s leading goal kicker Aaron Edwards? The answer; 11 scoring shots and just six goals against the best defence in the competition. With Tim Bongetti well beaten by BJ Credlin, the Pythons looked vulnerable in attack and struggled to impact the scoreboard. At the other end, Josh Butland booted five goals and teenager Luke Paynter three majors as the Stonecats flexed their muscles and won 14.11 (95) to 6.5 (41).

Brad Kiely was the best of the Pythons with a couple of goals and Paul Scanlon worked hard through the middle of the ground. Karingal stormed away from Langwarrin in the final quarter to win its second game of the season, 10.11 (71) to 7.11 (53). The Kangas led at half time by three points but were outscored six goals to two in the second half to remain on the bottom of the ladder without a single win for the season. The Langwarrin FC is the envy of many given its junior base, however, it is just a shadow of what it should be. With ‘review’ being the buzz word around footy clubs at the top level right now, perhaps it’s time this takes place at Langwarrin FC both on and off the field. The Bulls worked hard. Cal Dixon was superb for the winners and Andrew McInnes played arguably his best game since crossing from Carlton. Kieran Albanese again played a lone hand up forward with four goals and Luke Churcher battled hard. Three weeks ago, after losing to Mt Eliza, the season of Edithvale-Aspendale appeared to be over. Fast forward and the Eagles have won their past two matches are now a game clear in the top bracket. On Saturday it held off a persistent Chelsea, winning 17.15 (117) to 12.13 (85). Tim Mannix was the best player on the ground while Mick Meehan, Michael Bussey and Tom Burley booted three goals each. Bussey has only played two games this season, both against Chelsea, and has dominated each time. Simon Mitchelhill and Todd Gardiner were the best of the Gulls.

Bombers show experience NEPEAN LEAGUE By Toe Punt DROMANA maintained its position in the top five despite losing to Frankston Bombers by 22 points in MPNFL Nepean Division on Saturday. Billed as the match of the round, the game appeared to be anything but that in the opening quarter when the Bombers jumped out of the blocks and booted the first six goals of the game. The Bombers completely dominated centre clearances and their inside 50 count was 19 to two at one stage late in the term. Sam Fox booted three goals in the last quarter against Red Hill last week and booted three in the opening quarter on Saturday. Dromana’s Craig Christie did go to Fox after his early domination and had an impact before Jackson Quigley was given the job and shut him down completely. At quarter time, the Bombers had booted 6.8 (44) from 21 inside 50 entries. It missed some sitters and should have been 10 goals up at the first change. A goal just before quarter time game Dromana a tiny sniff at the break. That sniff appeared to be enough. The Dromana of the first five weeks would have thrown in the towel and be beaten by 15 goals. There’s a resolve about this young

Blues cruise: Hastings handed out an 111 point drubbing to Pearcedale. Picture: Andrew Hurst

group. It worked its way into the contest and for the second and third quarters, it outscored Frankston eight goals to four. However, whenever Dromana got close, Frankston was able to respond. The smallest margin for the match was eight points. Sam Fowler (four goals) and Jay Hutchison (three goals) were keys in attack for the Tigers while Dean Waugh’s drive off half back was superb. Skipper Terry Wheeler was superb when his team needed him. The Tigers kicked the first goal of the last quarter and when Hutchison had a

shot from 45 metres it would have reduced the margin the just four points. The shot missed and Frankston took it up the other end of the ground and booted a goal to make the margin 15 points. Jarryd Amalfi, Nathan Lonie and Corey Micari provided enormous drive out of defence for the Bombers while Longham, Muston and Harnett all looked dangerous in attack. Through the middle, Mitch Bosward, Dale Sutton and Matt Harris were excellent. Composure and experience were the difference between the sides in the end.

Dromana should be congratulated for coming back the way it did when it was blown away in the first 25 minutes. Frankston needs to be applauded for its scintillating start, weathering the storm and outscoring the opposition in the last when the game was up for grabs. Somerville is just one game outside the five after coming from behind to beat Rye. Billy Rolfe and Travis Finn in his fourth game for the Eagles were superb with three goals each while Justin Allsop continued his strong season. Sixteen-year-old Dylan Allen was sensational for the Demons in his first senior game, Matt Whelan snagged three majors and Harry Witty worked tirelessly. The Demons led by four points at half time but the Eagles booted 10 goals to five in the second hour to win 15.12 (102) to 11.14 (80). Tyabb played arguably its best game of footy for the season on Saturday, trailing Rosebud by just eight points at half time and going down by just 44 points. Jack Doman booted five goals in a superb display for the Yabbies while Brad Williams and Geordie Scott also played four great quarters of footy. Jack Jarman and Daniel Wilson were the best of the Buds who again were inaccurate in front of goal, winning 12.19 (91) to 7.5 (47).

Sorrento blew Red Hill away in one quarter of football on Saturday, which resulted in a 21.15 (141) to 12.7 (79) victory. The Sharks booted six goals to two in the third quarter to end the contest by three quarter time. Nick Corp was dominant with seven goals and Leigh Poholke booted four while Danny Stephenson was also a dominant force. Angus Callaghan played his first game for the season. Devon Meadows coach Glenn Michie dusted-off his footy boots and made a forced return to the field for his side against Crib Point on Saturday. Given his side’s lack of depth, Michie was forced to come out of retirement and take to the field. He booted two goals in his team’s 14.14 (98) to 10.12 (72) victory. The Meadows led by a whopping 49 points at half time before Crib booted seven of the next 10 goals to add some respectability to the scoreboard. In the final game, David Hirst and Shaun Foster booted four goals each and Luke Clark, Dale Alanis and Paul Rogasch three each to help Hastings to a monster 26.17 (173) to 9.8 (62) victory over Pearcedale. The Blues booted 21 goals to five after quarter time and had 12 goal kickers. Zach Campbell and Damian Scully were the best of the Panthers.

Aziz Bayeh gives Strikers precious point SOCCER

By Craig MacKenzie Despite being undermanned and facing off-field disruption leading into the match Peninsula Strikers battled to a gallant 2-2 draw against title contender Doveton at Waratah Reserve on Saturday. Former Strikers player and ex-English pro Willie Raynes was appointed senior coach last Tuesday, a move that shocked interim senior coach Billy Buchanan and assistant Graham Watson who thought that they had been appointed to the end of the season. No doubt Raynes turned up to Waratah Reserve expecting a baptism of fire against the State 2 South-East leader given that he’d lost Swiss import Raphael Stulz and young defender Conor Keely to injuries sustained on the training track last week. He had no inkling of what was unfolding off the pitch for not long before the 3pm kick-off there was no sign of the Strikers’ teamsheet in the referees’ room. Referee Senko Rastocic gave the visitors until 3.15pm to produce the teamsheet before calling off the contest and fortunately the issue was resolved within the time limit allowing the game to start at 3.10pm. Four minutes in and Deniz Sabanovski gave Doveton the lead after his first shot was blocked and his second deflected high into the top corner past the despairing grasp of Strikers’ keeper Colin McCormack. When Scott Webster scored a rare headed goal from a corner in the 18th minute most observers expected the floodgates to open but former Doveton ace Aziz Bayeh and his teammates had other ideas. Three minutes before the interval Doveton paid dearly for a defensive mixup as both Gethin Jones and Jozef Ferencz thought the other was going to attack a high ball into the Doves’ defensive third. Bayeh wasn’t similarly befuddled as he ran onto the bouncing ball and slammed an unstoppable volley past Doveton keeper Stuart Webster. In the 59th minute Michael Freeman blew a great chance to put the game out of Strikers’ reach when he mistimed his shot following a superb interchange with Shane Tagliaferro down the left. In the 69th minute Bayeh, whose dribbling ability troubled opponents throughout the contest, sent Grant Davies through on the left of the area but Jones slid in and blocked superbly. The goal of the game came in the 72nd minute when Bayeh spun just outside the area and unleashed a ferocious dipping volley that rocketed into

the top far corner for the equaliser. Jones had one last shot at redemption when given a free header at the back post in the 91st minute following a Ronir Muriqi free kick but he blew it by heading wide. It was a precious point for Strikers who are in a relegation battle with Doncaster Rovers and local rivals Frankston Pines and Seaford United. Strikers’ coaching staff will meet this week and the club is hopeful that any outstanding issues can be resolved. Pines drew 0-0 with Doncaster at Anderson Park on Friday night despite key defender Ben Caffrey being forced off after 10 minutes with a calf injury. Seaford may be at the foot of the ladder but it’s not finished yet as shown by Sunday’s 3-1 away win over North Caulfield. A stunning half volley from Matt Morris-Thomas in the 10th minute opened Seaford’s account, an Oran Harel header in the 44th minute levelled the scores but Seaford took a 2-1 lead into the interval after North Caulfield keeper Famara Djiba saved Alex Roberts’ penalty attempt and Josh Tsung hammered home the rebound. Djiba was sent off after receiving a

second yellow in the second half and Seaford substitute Mitch Lander sealed the issue with his side’s third goal. Strikers, Pines and Seaford all play each other over the next three seasondefining rounds and with so much at stake these local derbies have a harder, sharper edge to them and are certain to be fiercely contested. Langwarrin remains seven points clear on top of the State 1 South-East table after drawing 1-1 with Casey Comets at Comets Stadium last Friday night. Comets struck the first blow in the 19th minute when Canadian import Allando Matheson sent livewire winger Andy Stubley clear down the left and Stubley expertly slotted the ball past advancing Langy keeper Robbie Acs. Langy squared things up in the 40th minute when Paul Speed’s free kick was met with a glancing header by Mat Luak which gave Comets keeper Faraz Zenoozi no chance down low and inside the far post. Big George Whiteoak headed home from a Belger corner in the 69th minute but referee Yuhong Li ruled that Luak had infringed inside the area

and gave a free-kick to Comets which drew a chorus of complaint from the Langy dugout. Comets substitute Liam Ryan sent Stubley clear on the right with 10 minutes left and his low drive into the goalmouth saw Matheson lunging to make contact only to be blocked by a defender and the ball scrambled clear. Many Langy supporters were disappointed at the end of the match pointing to a controversial offside decision against Belger in the first half and Whiteoak’s disallowed goal in the second period while Comets fans were pleased with their side’s hard-earned point. Star striker Ryan Paczkowski scored a cracking goal but was later sent off in Mornington’s 2-0 away win over Clifton Hill on Saturday. Paczkowski brought Mornington fans to their feet just before half-time with a right-foot (yes, right foot) volley from just inside the area that flew past Clifton Hill keeper Chris Davis. An excellent finish on the angle by Sammy Orritt after a fine build-up in the 57th minute gave Mornington a two-goal buffer that it never relinquished. Paczkowski had been booked in the first half for kicking the ball away and when referee Danielle Anderson judged that a Paczkowski tackle in the 80th minute was worthy of a second caution the striker headed for the dressing room. “It was a massive three points for us given what happened before the game,” said Mornington assistant Dale White. That was a reference to the clash of heads at training that ruled out both Keegan Ziada and Nathan Yole. Big Scotty Millar was sick before the match and did well to get through the contest while Josh Valadon could only last an hour so Mornington’s depth was severely tested. Skye remains in the State 3 SouthEast promotion hunt after Saturday’s 2-1 away win over Middle Park. Skye hit the front in the 53rd minute after Jason Nowakowski was felled inside the area and captain Mark O’Connor stepped up to the plate and made no mistake. In the 78th minute substitute Lawrence Komba broke free and was unceremoniously brought down on his way to goal. O’Connor’s free kick found the top corner to make it 2-0 and from there few chances were fashioned. Middle Park’s consolation goal came in the 93rd minute after Skye defender Daniel Utting was adjudged to have handled the ball inside the area. David McCoy made no mistake

from the spot but the final whistle blew seconds later. Rosebud Heart was sucker-punched on Saturday losing its State 4 South away fixture 4-0 to title contender Bayside Argonauts. Despite going into this clash without Matt Pearce who was suspended and Carlo Cardoso and Chris Sibson who were both interstate Heart created enough chances in the first half to take what should have been a comfortable lead into the break. It paid for its profligacy when Bayside scored three goals in six minutes the opener coming from substitute Lewis Broderick in the 62nd minute after Beau Sharpe failed to clear and Broderick went past stranded Heart keeper Sean Skelly and slotted the ball home from the right of the area. Former Skye striker Nick Theodore was making his debut for Bayside and his header made it 2-0 in the 65th minute. Three minutes later Rob Harmeston curled the ball past Skelly to make it 3-0 and Theodore’s second in the 79th minute completed the scoreline when he was gifted possession from a long throw-in and finished from close range. Baxter’s promotion hopes received a setback when it went down 2-1 away to Dandenong South on Saturday. Goals in the 44th and 69th minutes by Lindurim Tairi kept the home side in the title race. Mark Pagliarulo opened the scoring for Baxter from the penalty spot in the third minute but Dandy South dominated the contest and Baxter’s best was Daniel D’Alfonso, back in goal in place of Francis Beck who was attending a family funeral. Somerville Eagles went down 3-0 at home to Chelsea on Saturday. Chelsea’s goals came from Dale Schmidt (26th minute), Chris Neumann (52nd) and Dhruv Rodrigues Chico (85th). Somerville’s Damien Finnegan received a second caution in the 75th minute and was sent off. The match raised over $2000 for Beyond Blue and the family of the late Jace Gillies.

Rainbow rollers: Skaters across Victoria came together at the Rainbow Lightning tournament to support Minus18. Picture: Richard Annable

Skaters roll in money for charity By Ben Triandafillou SOUTH Sea Roller Derby threw “all the rules out the window” with their Rainbow Lightning Tournament on Sunday 2 July in support of Minus18. The Rainbow Lightning Tournament lured skaters from across Victoria with players from Ballarat, Bendigo and Upwey making their way down to the Sk8house in Carrum Downs. The three round swiss style tournament had an extended ‘mega’ jam

of 10 minutes rather than the usual two minutes while having only seven skaters in each team. “It was a great atmosphere with players from all around Victoria coming to skate,” South Sea Roller Derby president Harmin’ Miranda said. “We don’t normally get to skate against people from other leagues so it was great to compete and skate with new people. “Victoria has the number one roller derby team in the world and often share their knowledge, so every team

in the tournament was quite strong. “There wasn’t any money for the winner as the event was about supporting the charity but the winners get bragging rights... and rainbow lollipops.” The tournament raised over $500 in donations with all proceeds going to the Minus18 charity, Australia’s largest organization for LGBTI youth. “Everybody loved it and we certainly hope we can make it an annual event – we want it bigger, better and more colorful,” Miranda said.

Red Hill rider eclipses ‘brutal’ course to take title By Ben Triandafillou RED Hill Mountain Bike Riders have a world beater in their ranks. Member Kevin Skidmore rode to victory in the World Endurance Mountain Bike Organization (WEMBO) 24hour solo world championships. Skidmore, 41, took out the 40-44-year-old male category and finished 10th overall in the grueling endurance event at Finale Ligure, Italy, on Saturday 3 June. He rode 24 hours straight, clocking up 320km over 34 laps of the track which included almost 8000 metres of climbing. “It’s nothing short of insane,” Red Hill Mountain Bike Riders president Mark Gardner said. “There’s never a moment where he can relax and not be on his game. “[Mountain bike riding] is one of the most demanding sports on the planet. “You’re sleep deprived, constantly hydrating and reviewing your food intake, while riding at 70-75% of maximum heart rate, where some sections require a maximum effort to get through a climb” It was far from smooth sailing for Skidmore who faced several set-backs throughout the race. He destroyed one of his bikes when he miscalculated a jump early in the race and recalls the “sickening sound of carbon fibre being destroyed”. Later, he tumbled into thorn bushes after stopping on a hill and overbalanced when trying to take off and pass another rider who had stalled on the climb. Then, in the closing stages of the race, Skidmore tangled himself in vines in the forest and broke a brake lever on a second bike. Recounting the wearisome race, Skidmore said that the course was “brutal” and that he was “struggling with his own demons and fighting off sleep [when having to ride through the night].” It was a massive win for Skidmore who has recently been competing in the six-hour Victorian Enduro series.

Ashmore keeps goal of Australian side alive By Ben Triandafillou MORNINGTON hockey club goalkeeper Julia Ashmore represented Australia for the first time in her career with the Australian over-45’s side which faced New Zealand in May. Ashmore spent two weeks in New Zealand where she played in the World Master Games in Auckland with the over-40’s Boardermasters side before heading to Whangarei to join the starting line-up for the over45’s Australian side. Ashmore guided the Australian side to a 1-0 victory in their first match before drawing to the New Zealand side 1-1 in the second match until eventually being worn down in the final game, going down 2-0. Ashmore has come close to making the Australian team once before, getting chosen for the Australian shadow squad in 2011, but was surprised to be selected for both the over-40’s shadow side and the over-45’s Australian team. “I had my best chance of making the Australian team in 2013 but I didn’t try-out,” Ashmore said.

True grit: Kevin Skidmore rides through the mud and dirt to win the 40-44 age group world championships. Picture: supplied

Skidmore has been riding bikes for as long as he can remember but took up racing mountain bikes nine years ago and has been a member of the Red Hill Mountain Bike Riders for the past five years. “I never started this with any real ambitions, I just wanted to prove that I could do it,” he said. “Nine years later I still find that I have something to prove, but still love the idea of riding somewhere new.” Skidmore is gearing up for the Otway Odyssey in February – an event in which he missed out on a top-10 finish by only one second this year.

“This time I thought I had nothing to lose so I really gave it a go.” “The team was awesome to play with and we had some really great games.” Ashmore was chosen for the Australian side after her performance at the National Championships in Hobart last October and is hoping to replicate the same performance this year. “The state trials over the last couple of weeks will determine who represents Victoria in Newcastle later in September,” Ashmore said. “Hockey Australia then picks the Australian team from what they see at Newcastle and decide on who goes to Spain to represent the country.” Ashmore has been playing hockey on and off throughout her life, initially taking it up at 13 years old. Ashmore now plays for Mornington Hockey Club in the Peninsula Women’s league on a Monday and also plays in Victorian League One on the weekend. Ashmore also plays for Mentone Hockey Club on a Wednesday night in the Women’s A Grade Masters.

Boots for remote kids By Ben Triandafillou A FOOTBALL “boots drive” is being held by the MPJFL in conjunction with AFL Northern Territory to provide kids living in the remote areas of the Northern Territory with some new boots. MPJFL is holding the ‘boots drive’ as many kids in the remote areas of the Northern Territory are playing barefoot on hard dirt football ovals. With junior football nearing the end of the season, the MPJFL is hoping

that players from the Mornington Peninsula will donate their old boots and join the drive. Freight company’s K & S Freighters and NTFS are supporting the initiative and will be freighting the boots up to the NT in October freeof-charge. Drop off points for boots can be located at either your local junior football club within the MPJFL or at the MPJFL office at 10 Wallis Drive, Hastings - opening hours are 9am5pm Monday to Friday.

Legends and Champions don the boots TYABB FNC By Doug Dyall Following the match against Dromana on 8 July a number of past players of the Tyabb Football Club pulled on the jumper again to represent the “Legends” in a game against the “Champions”. A big crowd was on hand to watch these old players strut their stuff to raise some money for the club as well as getting together to reminisce about pat glories. Surprisingly, there were many nervous players; some who had played over 100 games were nervous to again be playing in front of a crowd. As soonas the game started it was

evident that both sides were keen to win.However all players on both teams ensured that their former team mates were looked after throughout the night and no injuries recorded. Monday morning, however, may have told a different story! In a close battle the “Legends” got up to beat the “Champions”. Participants ranged from having played anywhere from a dozen games to 350 games for the club, and all were made most welcome. Scott Pickersgill, Matt Hose, John Alexander, Eddie Fischer and many other greats played. To have 10 former Presidents and 16 Life Members attend, either as

players or officials, was outstanding and Warren Davies, the organiser, did a fantastic job. Mark Mounsey, a former player, was an excellent central umpire and made the game an open affair. A special mention should be made of Robin Atkin who donned the boots at 71 years of age; Robin was a member of the original Tyabb team of 1977 when the club re-formed. It was a great night which may become an annual event. The real highlight of the evening was when all fifty players, officials and family members joined in the singing of the Tyabb theme song after the game.

A day to savor at Hastings HASTINGS FNC SATURDAY saw Hastings Football/ Netball club welcome Pearcedale in what was a fantastic day for the club with all teams playing at the one venue for the first time in the club’s history. These types of days are just a wonderful reflection on how well the club is going, when you look around and see so many happy faces spending time with their family and friends, it certainly makes you realize that the Hastings FNC are doing something right. This Saturday we are hosting Frankston Bombers at home hopefully the club encourages all our members and supporters to get along and support all teams in what should be a great day. Now to the football. The boys played a brilliant four quarter effort coming away with 100 + point victory after only being a goal up at quarter time. They put the foot down to kick a further 21 goals in the next three quarters to come away with a very convincing victory. And on top of that of the club had a wonderful night with our Vegas Night which was well attended. Seniors We certainly needed to play well to consolidate our position in the top five. The club had a lot to play for. The boys played a very unselfish brand of football on Saturday in overcast chilly conditions. We had so many players on the weekend who just played their role. Our run, defensive pressure was outstanding throughout the day. Our forward line, for the second week in row, was terrific and of course our defensive zone was once again superb. Anytime you have a 100 point victory you certainly couldn’t be any happier. We just need to keep working hard on the track and prepare well. This week we have got Frankston at home. Hopefully we can get a big home crowd to support us, in what will be another cracking game of local football. Reserves We were up against Pearcedale. With the season really starting to heat up with every game being important as the last. We started unbelievably well kicking seven goals five in the first

quarter; probably the best 20 minutes of footy we have put together for the year. We continued this into the second but were unable to put the dominance on the scoreboard. I spoke to the boys at halftime about not letting up and keep being hungry. The last half we played some real good team footy. We kept the pressure on and gave our forwards plenty of chances with racking up plenty of inside 50s and really delivering perfectly to them. We have Frankston next week in a really important game for the season.

Best players, Dylan Parlberg, Kane Lewis and Dave Hull. Under 19s Pearcedale at home was our chance to get one back after Pearcedale beat us by less than a kick last time we met. The boys switched on early and kicked early goals, which is a change from our usual slow starts. Peter Megee and Lachie Barton dominated centre clearances helped out by Campbell Pike, Joel Taylor and Michael Tanner rotating in the ruck. Our vision, handball and ball use was outstanding as we constantly picked the right option and hit up

targets. Our small forward setup led by Will White, Jake Knott and Benny Paarlberg ensured that we have targets to hit. Alex Clemens and Christopher Gavin repelled Pearcedale’s forward entries with great defensive work. Great to run out winners with a fantastic team effort. Well done boys. Peter Megee, Joel Taylor, Sean Hewitt and Michael Tanner best on the day. Netball Report A beautiful winters day saw the Hastings D grade girls fired up for a great contest against a strong Pearcedale side.

Fiona Kain was relentless in the GD position giving the Pearcedale goalers plenty to think about. Sheryn Mock returned to the team this week and continued her great form in the goal shooter position. Unfortunately Pearcedale proved too strong and experienced and came away with the win. C grade were left at the starting blocks from the beginning and never really recovered. Pearcedale played an awesome match and showed the C grade girls what they should strive to become. On the positive side, our scores did improve from the first time we played them. B grade continued their fantastic form with the defenders Taylah Strange and Nicole Ram giving the attack end plenty of opportunity to score once again. Emma Smith along with Shaye Williams finished off the defenders hard work with the centre court making great position moving the ball down the court. Amy Goodacre’s defensive work through the centre court was a highlight. Another great win by the girls. The club is very proud of all the girls who put in effort and commitment to their team and our club. *** Women’s Football Report What a great day for our football club with all sides playing at home for the first time ever. We came up against Pearcedale, we started the game off pretty well attacking our goals for most of the quarter to lead at the first change. At half time we had a pretty good lead with all the girls playing well. I thought we controlled the game for the next two quarterss to have a good win. Hastings 6 -10 to Pearcedale 2-3. It was a great team effort with the girls showing true grit and determination. A special thanks to the Hastings juniors for their help and support and letting us use their facilities. *** Upcoming Functions: Past players day 29th July vs Crib Point FNC celebrating the 1907/1947/1977 Premiership sides for further information regarding this great day please contact the club on 5979 1740 to book your attendance. *** Next game Saturday 22nd July, Hastings vs Frankston Bombers at Hastings all games commence 10am.

Reserves fly the flag while seniors show promise CRIB POINT FNC By Jacob Collins THE U19’s had the week off last week with Devon Meadows being unable to field a side. This week they will be hoping to gain the four points when they come up against Pearcedale. It was a new look reserves side for the Magpies last week with eight under 19’s players coming up to play given their week off. As a result, the side were injected with more pace and run allowing them to run Devon Meadows off their feet. The advantage of youth was evident from the initial stages with the magpies getting out of the blocks with a three goal lead early on. Not only did the unders provide extra run and drive from the contest but they proved that they were more than willing to be strong at the contest against bigger bodies.

Aaron Whitford provided plenty of run from the back line and used the ball well going into the forward half, also adding two goals towards the side’s victory. The efforts of the unders players were complemented by the workhorse efforts of Riley Clifford, Beau Monty and Jake Bromley who all played well throughout the midfield and lead by example. The Magpies were on top all match and finished with a 60-point win. The senior side put in a good performance against Devon Meadows with plenty of promising signs coming out of the match but the Magpies unfortunately couldn’t secure the win. The Magpies were slow out of the blocks and Devon were able to extend a lead out to 49 points at the half. A really strong third term saw the

Magpies shorten the lead to just 18 points at three quarter time and it looked as though they might run over the top of Devon. It wasn’t to be with Devon hitting back in the last and securing a 26-point win. Nonetheless it was an impressive effort from the Crib Point players having been able to get back into a winning position, especially with playing coach Brad Arnold going down after a big collision early in the third. Dean Warry and Brendan Phillips were prominent in the magpies performance at either side of the ground whilst Captain Mitch Stansborough was also good through the middle of the ground. Hopefully the team will be able to take the positives into this week when they face Pearcedale in what will be a winnable game for the

Magpies. *** It wasn’t the day we were hoping for down at Crib last week but as we head into the final weeks of the home and away season, the teams are bouncing back! D grade had an amazing first quarter showing off all of their improvements since their last meeting with Devon and were a draw at quarter time. Unfortunately the girls let Devon get their confidence back with a few broken centre passes and they continued on for the rest of the game. BOC went to Jane but her best game yet in centre. C grade had an amazing start and were up at quarter time. With only seven players left in their team it was asking a lot of the girls to keep up their intensity and unfortunately Devon got the run over them in the

end losing by 15. BOC went to our old reliable Scarlo for directing so much amazing play. B grade had an absolute nail biter with the game coming down to the last minute to determine a draw. Defenders killed it all day creating turnovers that we just weren’t able to convert and that let us down but our fight for the ball kept us in the game. BOC went to Brooke who was so strong in defence with her rebounds. Shout out to Amie for her first game up in B grade, handled the pressure very well! Without Adrienne and Dionne there was a bit of pressure on the game but our girls played their game and came away with a 26 goal win. BOC by far went to Belinda for one of her best games ever! Reading the play so well and taking intercepts all over the court!
