Joey’s school cafe teaches life skills A PUPIL-run cafe at St Joseph’s Primary School enhances the school’s philosophy of connecting learning to life. Grade 6 pupils plan, cook and serve food to parents and teachers each fortnight at the Crib Point school. Through the planning, purchasing, organising and serving of meals they learn life skills and how to apply their knowledge and abilities in a range of subjects, including science, literacy, numeracy and health, teacher Suzanne Deefholts said. The cafe is well supported by senior teachers and the school’s chef Matt Demarte.  St Joseph’s fun fair is on Friday 24 March 24 from 3pm.

Island ferry out to tender Keith Platt keith@mpnews.com.au THE state government is promising strict contract conditions to ensure a reliable ferry service from Stony Point to French and Phillip islands. Public Transport Victoria is offering a five-year contract for the service with a five-year extension option. The current contract ends in June and tenders for the contract close 5 April, with the successful applicant expected to be announced in May. “The Western Port ferry service

provides an important service for the communities of French Island, Phillip Island and Stony Point,” executive director of franchise operator management at PTV Alan Fedda said. “PTV understands the importance of public transport to remote communities and the successful bidder will need to be able to demonstrate they can provide a reliable service for the local community and for visitors.” Mr Fedda said tougher KPIs (key performance indicators) would be added to the new contracts “to ensure locals and visitors benefit from im-

provements to service standards and reliability on the public transport service”. The ferry service, which operates daily between Stony Point and French and Philip islands, has been accused of being unreliable, with students sometimes left stranded on the mainland (“No ferry: islanders isolated” The News 11/3/15). Ferry breakdowns and rough weather also led to claims of businesses losses. Mr Fedda said ferry services will operate as normal over the period of the tender process and during any transi-

tion period “should a new operator be appointed”. Two years ago The News reported on the recent “more than 70 [ferry] cancellations” (“Ferry tender may be two years away” 15/4/15). “Despite numerous letters from islanders to PTV and the amazing support by our local member [Hastings MP] Neale Burgess, the amount of cancellations is increasing,” a resident – who did not want to be named – told The News. “There have been more than 70 cancellations in the past two months causing under aged children to

At other times small boats help out to get people across to the island – sometimes under dangerous conditions.” A PTV spokesperson said the ferry could not operate in winds of 25 knots or more and that cancellations had increased “due to the operator experiencing breakdowns on both of his vessels on the same day.

Scientists predict ‘bumper’ whiting catches in 2018 SCIENTISTS predict the large number of small King George whiting entering Port Phillip and Western Port bays will be “catchable” by spring 2018. The whiting larvae drift eastward from spawning grounds off far western Victoria and eastern South Australia for about three months before entering the bays and estuaries in spring. Studies of whiting living in seagrass beds in Port Phillip have shown they stay about four years before heading back out to sea. “Westerly winds help drive the currents that bring the whiting larvae into the bay, where they take about two years to reach the legal minimum size of 27 centimetres,” Fisheries Victoria executive director, Travis Dowling, said. “At about four years of age, most whiting have left the bays to complete their life in coastal waters. “Because whiting only reside in the bays for a few years of their life, these fisheries naturally fluctuate depending on the number of tiny larvae that entered the bays several years prior. “The high numbers recorded in the most recent survey were once again

consistent with a 2016 winter-spring climate characterised by frequent and strong westerly winds.” Mr Dowling said annual surveys in Port Phillip since 1998 were seen as a reliable predictor of future catches. “The bumper whiting catches enjoyed by anglers in recent times are the result of exceptional juvenile whiting numbers detected in the 2013 survey,” he said. “People fishing outside the bays along the coast can expect increased catches of larger whiting over the next few years as these mature fish move out to spawn during winter.” Mr Dowling said there was a daily bag limit of 20 King George whiting a person and encouraged people to keep an eye out for tagged whiting, which are part of a new research project paid for by recreational fishing licence fees. The project is investigating the movement of adult whiting leaving the bays and trying to confirm their spawning locations. Anglers who catch tagged whiting are asked to report the tag number, location, and size of the fish to whitingtag@gmail. com or by calling 5258 3686. Keith Platt

A P-PLATE driver who crashed on The Esplanade, Mt Martha, Sunday 12 March, was lucky not to have plunged 50 metres onto rocks. Roadside vegetation snagged the Holden Apollo’s axles after the driver, 19, of Dandenong, lost control while reportedly racing up to six other cars on the narrow, winding road, at 9.30pm. Although it has a designated 60kph limit, police believe he may have been going much faster. Six SES and CFA trucks rushed to the scene and used ropes to prevent the car from falling over the jagged clifftop with the man still trapped inside. He was later treated for cuts and abrasions. Mornington police said the man is expected to be charged with various traffic offences. Anyone with information is urged to call Crime Stoppers 1800 333 000.

Police focus on crime reduction, says chief Stephen Taylor steve@mpnews.com.au

Other statistics showed: ď Ž Frankston: Crimes against the person 2311 – up 

SOUTHERN Metro Region divisional commander Superintendent Glenn Weir last week downplayed a rise in crime in October-December last year. Crime Statistics Agency data released on Thursday painted a bleak picture: aggravated burglaries in Frankston surged 49 per cent in the past year – from 96 to 143, while motor vehicle theft was up 38.5 per cent – from 493 to 682. “We don’t deal with old data,� he said. “These statistics are three months out of date.� Theft from motor vehicles -- described by local police as “volume crime� because of its prevalence -- was up 10.6 per cent, from 1497 to 1655. “Over the past 18 weeks, we have overseen reductions in crime, which have been tracking down since the end of November,� Supt Weir said. He said the crime agency’s statistics, covering the 12 months to the end of December, had included a “bad October and November� in local crime which had “fallen since then�. “We still have a lot of concerns regarding highend crime, such as aggravated burglaries and home invasions, but there have been consistent falls since the end of November,� he said. “It’s difficult for us. We try to focus on the real issues and on turning things around and we are confident that those reductions [in crime] will be repeated across Frankston and the peninsula.� Skye had one of the largest increases in aggravated burglaries in the state in the final quarter of last year. There were 273 violent break-ins – up from 125 in 2015. The only other postcode to record a bigger increase was Ballarat.

12.5 per cent; property and deception 8983 – up 13.8 per cent; drug offences 1225 – up 13.5 per cent; public order and security 1428 – up 4.3 per cent; justice procedures 3007 – up 24.2 per cent; other 25 – down 34 per cent. ď Ž Mornington Peninsula: Crimes against the person 1723 – up 12.5 per cent; property and deception 6453 – up 5.6 per cent; drug offences 695 – up 0.4 per cent; public order and security 1223 – up 6.3 per cent; justice procedures 1943 – up 27.5 per cent; other 31 – down 11.4 per cent. In Frankston assaults were up 17 per cent; robbery up 30 per cent; dangerous acts endangering a person up 38 per cent; arson was up 44 per cent; deception 20 per cent; cultivating and manufacturing drugs 43 per cent; drug use and possession 22 per cent; public nuisance offences up 82 per cent. On the Mornington Peninsula, sexual offences were up 60 per cent; robbery 46 per cent; arson up 34 per cent; burglaries up 29 per cent; cultivating and manufacturing drugs 39 per cent; public nuisance offences up 57 per cent. 

Police rush to party EIGHT police units rushed to an “out-ofcontrol� party in Somerville on Saturday night. Sergeant Philip Weight, of Hastings police, said up to 200 youths who were mostly alcohol-affected were fighting as they spilled out onto One Chain Rd. The youths, aged 16-18, dispersed when police from Hastings, Mornington and Frankston, arrived at 11pm and the Air Wing hovered overhead. There were no arrests.

Totem of indigenous culture FOR a small school, Tyabb Railway Station Primary walks tall in community events. It won best junior street display at the Western Port Street Festival and then came first at the Red Hill Show’s decorated totem pole competition. The totem pole celebrates indigenous culture and a love of the environment. To complete it, pupils collected hundreds of natural items – such as gum nuts, banksia pods, rocks, and even acorns from the 100-year-old oak tree in the

schoolyard. These were sorted, sprayed black and then carefully decorated with thousands of red, yellow and white dots. The pods, cones and nuts were then glued to a wooden pole with mini pom poms made to enhance the textured effect. The school’s Amanda Heggen said the pole would go on permanent display in the school’s Indigenous garden after a showing outside Tyabb IGA on Thursday 23 March.

Laser idea to deter ducks Liz Bell liz@mpnews.com.au MORNINGTON Peninsula horticulturalist Lisa Brassington knows that crops and ducks sometimes don’t mix, but the crafty inventor has come up with a simple solution to the problem that leaves both unharmed. Ms Brassington, who works at Peninsula Fresh Organics in Baxter, has spent the past three years watching ducks shift from foraging for insects to organic leafy green produce as they take advantage of what she calls “the best buffet in Baxter”. Wanting a solution that would save crops without hurting the ducks, she combined her education in rural planning and physics with her love of farming to come up with an idea using laser technology. Ms Brassington is a finalist in the RIRDC Victorian rural women’s award for her project – Duck: stirred not shredded - which uses information she gained from European and North American farmers who use

laser bird repellent systems. After studying data on weather and climate observations, citizen science counts of bird numbers, moon cycle information and farmer feedback, Ms Brassington came up with a system to model bird and bat behaviour and

combine this information with the technology. She said all other efforts to defeat the hungry ducks were unmanageable, and current reactive methods of dealing with them, such as random loud sounds and decorative scarecrows,

were ineffective. Since the announcement of her entry, Ms Brassington has had interest from three universities and been able to help farmers work together towards a trial. The next step, she said, would be

to bring universities, the Bureau of Meteorology, Bird Life Australia and market gardeners together to workshop the idea and come up with concrete plans she can take to HortConnections 2017 in Adelaide in May.

Singing Welsh

THE co-author of a book on the history of the Ranelagh Estate, Mt Eliza, says details about the early settlement of the area had captured the imaginations of some of the area’s newer residents. Veronica Grounds, a Ranelagh Estate resident, said she helped write the book to document the colourful and interesting history of the area, and its importance to the Mornington Peninsula. The book, Ranelagh: A Special Place, was written with Hal Breidahl and Ian Dick. Ms Grounds will speak about the book at 2pm Wednesday 22 March at Mornington Library.

Artist has solo show in store Stephen Taylor steve@mpnews.com.au IT’S never too late to have your first solo art exhibition. That’s what 85-year-old Mornington resident Brian Gibbs thought – and last week he was busy hanging 18 paintings on the walls of the Somers store for an eightweek show. Gibbs, who retired after 30 years as an engineer with and international oil company, began painting when he came to the Mornington Peninsula in 1986. “I retired to pursue my interest in art and water colours,� he said. “I joined the Peninsula Arts Society, taking classes with Robert Wade, Colin Johnson and Ron Muller, and did workshops with other water colourists. I also did life drawing classes and exhibited in various art shows.� Gibbs won a first prize at the Red Hill Art Show and has sold his works in England, Germany, France, the US and here in Australia, but the Somers exhibition is his first one-man show. His wife Georgie is an enthusiastic supporter: “My husband has three drawers full of beautiful paintings and has never shown any,� she said. Gibb is confident of selling his works, which include traditional and figurative works, and are priced up to $375. Peninsula scenes include Bushrangers Bay and Chilean buskers performing at the Emu Plains market. The Somers store is an ideal setting, he says. “It’s got a little gallery and they get a lot of people there.� Any first-night jitters: “No, I am not nervous; it’s all out there,� he said. Interest in his works is becoming apparent: “I have already sold two paintings.�

Landmark: The North Christian Church in Columbus was designed by Eero Saarinen.

Virtual tour for art’s sake THOSE attending a talk at the Australian Decorative and Fine Arts Society this week will be taken on a virtual tour of a town in the US and learn of the modernist architectural vision that underpins it. Monash University research fellow Dr Matthew Laing will speak at 5.30pm, Friday 24 March, at the Peninsula Community Theatre in Wilsons Rd, Mornington. His subject is the town of Columbus in south Indiana which he says has an extraordinary architectural legacy. About 60 buildings are listed as national landmarks of modernist American architecture, thanks to the vision and passion of local businessman J Irwin Miller, long-time CEO of diesel engine maker, Cummins Corporatio. Mr Miller transformed his hometown into a modernist utopia with nearly all of its public buildings and community spaces designed by world-leading architects. ADFAS’s hour-long Friday lectures are illustrated and are followed by light refreshments and an opportunity to meet the lecturer and fellow members. The cost to non-members is $20. New members are welcome. Details call 9787 2092.

Helpers flock to school after rampage Stephen Taylor steve@mpnews.com.au A “COUPLE of dills” who went on a vandalism spree at Rosebud Primary School last week are no match for the “many thousands of wonderful people” in the school community. Principal Stephen Fisher, who oversaw the clean-up and restoration of the heritage-listed before and after school care room, was speaking after a horror Labour Day weekend when vandals broke in and wrought havoc, early Sunday morning, 12 March. Mr Fisher said he had “never seen anything like” the destruction caused by the group which caused up to $10,000 damage to walls and floors, equipment, furniture and windows in their night of chaos. Police have arrested a 16-year-old boy from Kilsyth and say they will also charge two other boys aged 13 and 14 and a girl, 13, from McCrae. Mr Fisher said a fire extinguisher had been sprayed around the room before being thrown through a window. A two metre by one metre glass fish tank had been smashed causing water damage to the floor and killing fish. A TV set had been ripped off the wall and left smashed on the floor. Tubs of pens and pencils have been thrown around the room. Devastated as he was by the vandals’ assault, Mr Fisher was heartened by the strong community spirit shown by parents and pupils who arrived at the Jetty Rd school next day to clean up the mess and fix what had been broken. He was also thrilled with the generosity of local donors.

Scenes of despair: Some of the damage caused by vandals at Rosebud Primary School.

“It’s all been pretty emotional,” he said. “We’ve had an overwhelming past couple of days.” Mr Fisher said the school “did a shout-out on Facebook on Monday and pretty soon we had 70 adults and 30 children here putting back what hadn’t been broken”. All the walls had to be washed down, mess cleaned up, broken glass collected, furniture put back and the remains of the fish tank removed. Mr Fisher, who has been at the school for the past 37 years, said periodic vandalism was something “all

schools have to deal with – probably about once a month”. He said he was confident none of the alleged vandals had “anything to do with the school” as pupils. “The affinity we have between the kids, parents and the school is very strong and being involved in that sort of incident would be completely out of character,” he said. “We have an amazing welfare program where kids that are having issues can go. They become committed and protective of the school. Even kids who are a bit wayward love the place.”

He said he was distressed that teachers at before-and-after-school care had worked hard over the holidays getting the room ready for the start of the year. “The good thing is that it’s now back to being better than it was,” Mr Fisher said. A boy, 16, of Kilsyth, who has been charged over the vandalism spree has been bailed to appear at Frankston Children’s Court at a later date. A 13-year-old boy, of Rye, 13-yearold girl, of McCrae, and a 14-year-old boy, of Berwick, will be summonsed

to appear at Frankston Children’s Court at a later date. And a 13-yearold boy, of Rosebud, was interviewed but later released. Police believe the five youths may have been also been involved in burglary and theft from a number of cars in the Rosebud CBD and foreshore areas. Acting Sergeant Steve Drew, of Rosebud police, said items stolen from various vehicles have been returned to their owners.

Opinions sought Libs rail on airfield plan against ‘arrogant’ sky rail

THE long term operation and safety of Tyabb airfield is being scutinised as part of the preparation of a precinct plan by Mornington Peninsula Shire. “Council recognises that the airfield and the surrounding areas require careful consideration and the development of a policy and planning framework to provide for the long term operation of the airfield while protecting the safety and amenity of residents,” shire strategic projects manager Allan Cowley said. As well as making written submissions residents can attend three drop-in sessions being organised with consultants hire by the shire, Kneebush Planning and Arcadis. Mr Cowley said that “as a first step” the consultants wanted to hear residents’ “initial views on the issues that should be addressed in the plan”.

“The drop in sessions will provide an opportunity for informal discussion of any issues that you wish to raise.” The sessions will be held at Tyabb Community Hall, 1535 FrankstonFlinders Rd, Tyabb, 6-7 tonight (Tuesday) and 2-3.30pm and 6-7.30pm Wednesday 29 March. For more information or to make a separate appointment with the consultants call the shire on 5950 1967 or email martin.chin@mornpen.vic. gov.au. Written comments can also be emailed to Mr Chin or sent to: Manager – Strategic Projects - Tyabb Airfield Precinct Plan, Mornington Peninsula Shire Council, Private Bag 1000, Rosebud 3939. Initial submissions should be lodged by the 7 April.

Environment survey extended MORNINGTON Peninsula Shire has extended the date of a survey on residents’ views on protecting the environment to midnight on Friday 7 April. More than 150 people have completed the survey, with more than 50 people registering their interest to attend workshops. The environment project was last year flagged as a priority in the shire’s Your Peninsula 2021 survey which showed many residents saw protect-

ing and maintaining a clean environment “as the number one challenge”, according to a shire news release. The shire says it will support the community to protect the environment by reducing carbon emissions and prepare to cope with changing environmental conditions. To access the survey or register to attend a workshop on 27 or 30 March visit mornpen.vic.gov.au/cleanandgreen, visit a shire customer service centre or library; or call 5950 1000.

Neil Walker neil@mpnews.com.au BUSINESS deals to build sky rail along sections of the Frankston line won’t be “torn up” but any incoming Coalition state government in Victoria will look again at any level crossing removal not finished and put rail lines under road. Liberal opposition leader Matthew Guy visited Carrum on Tuesday (14 March) — where the Labor state government confirmed elevated rail will be built — to accuse the government of “playing politics” with rail projects. “I believe a new government can and should negotiate a new contract and put those level crossings underground as they were always meant to be,” Mr Guy said. “Some communities get sky rail, some communities get a trench. And it depends in some areas on the seat margin, who’s talked loudest and on internal Labor politics in relation to where a member sits in relation to a friendship with the Premier. “It’s just not the way to build infrastructure. Do it properly, do it consist-

ently and do it right from the start.” The Level Crossing Removal Authority confirmed last week that a 900-metre long eight-metre high “rail bridge” will be built over McLeod Rd and level crossings at Station St, Eel Race Rd and Mascot Ave will be removed. Carrum Labor MP Sonya Kilkenny welcomed the decision alongside a plan to move train stabling from Carrum along the Frankston line to Kananook. “Not only will we remove these level crossings – we will turn the ugly sta-

bling yard in to a new Carrum village that will transform our community forever,” she said in a statement last week. Mr Guy accused the government of being “pig headed” and “arrogant” in insisting elevated rail must be built in Carrum. “If it’s about the water table, then we would never have built CityLink, it goes 10-15 metres below the Yarra river.” The opposition leader said he disagreed with moving stabling to

Concerns over ‘mega’ market Stephen Taylor steve@mpnews.com.au

Kananook. The government announced last week seven properties — most with businesses on site — will be compulsorily acquired in the Wells Rd, Seaford area to accommodate the Kananook stabling. “I’m certainly not in the business of tearing up contracts but there is a broader discussion about Frankston station as to whether that terminus is the right spot for the end of the line,” Mr Guy said. “There seems to be a continual ‘band aiding’ of

the Frankston train station.” He favoured extending the electric rail line and building stabling at Baxter or Leawarra. Eleven level crossings will now be removed along the Frankston line — two more than originally planned — from Cheltenham to Frankston as part of the state government’s pledge to separate road from rail at level crossings across Victoria. Construction works will mostly begin next year and train commuters will suffer short-term disruptions to train services. Metro Trains will run buses alongside sections of the Frankston line affected by level crossing removals.

AN application for a $4 million “mega” supermarket on the site of the former Masters store on Mornington-Tyabb Rd is causing concerns among planners. Mornington Peninsula Shire Council is assessing a request from Home Investment Consortium Company to convert the existing building for use as a supermarket and other retail outlets with a variation to car parking layout. Eight tenancies are proposed for the 10,845 square metre site, including a 4250 square metre supermarket, six bulk stores ranging in size from 5002000 square metres and a 100 square metre cafe. Coles, which already has a supermarket at Mornington Central shopping centre, could be eyeing the giant site for a second store, although it was non-committal last week. “We’re committed to serving customers at Mornington Central and currently don’t have any firm plans to open another store in Mornington,” Coles national communications manager Julia Balderstone said. Rivals Woolworths and Aldi each have two supermarkets in Mornington: Woolworths at Mornington Village and Bentons Square and Aldi in Main St and the Homemaker Centre, off Nepean Highway. A new Mornington-Tyabb Rd base would be ironic for Coles as it would give parent company Wesfarmers a grip on the local headquarters of its former rival, placing it between the two Wool-

worths’ stores. The mayor, Cr Bev Colomb, said she did not know which of the supermarket giants was behind the application, which will be considered at council’s April meeting. However, she is concerned about the preservation of the town’s retail “hierarchy” if the application is successful. “Certain size supermarkets suit certain size townships,” she said. “The state government gave provision for supermarkets up to 1800 square metres to allow smaller supermarkets to get a foot in,” she said. “The as-of-right 1800 square metre rule remains, yet this application is for 4250 square metres, with five or six large bulk goods stores in there as well. “The state government rezoned areas for companies the size of Masters, such as we had in Mornington, and we have ended up with that site and we want it to prosper. “Our concern is the sheer size of a supermarket at 4250 square metres. “Establishing large bulk goods stores on the site doesn’t bother me, but we would have to put a lot of thought in before we allowed such a very large supermarket [to be established] out of town.” The mayor said the shire would “not like to see the ripple effect on other shopping centres in Mornington which would involve a loss of jobs”. “We must do our homework as to where there is a new large mega supermarket – we have never had such a large supermarket. We must do our proper due diligence while maintaining the right balance of large and small enterprises.”

Teeing for charity

Homeless, robbed

FLINDERS Lions Club raised $17,000 for various charities at its annual charity golf day on Monday 6 March. Ninety-six players, including four teams from local businesses, enjoyed the sunny weather and excellent course conditions at the Flinders Golf Club. Kay & Burton’s Paul Armstrong conducted a lively auction after lunch and Bob Tracey took photographs. The club welcomes requests from community groups for financial support or assistance with projects. They should write to the secretary at PO Box 10, Flinders. The club is in its 48th year of raising funds and supporting the community. Last year members donated $35,000 to a range of activities.

A HOMELESS man was assaulted and robbed at the Frankston boat launching ramp car park, 10.30pm, Friday 8 March. Police said a group of Pacific Islander youths approached the 34-year-old and demanded money. When he said he had none they allegedly assaulted him and took what few belongings he had, including his backpack and sleeping bag. The man suffered bumps and bruises. A 14-year-old Mornington youth was interviewed by police and is expected to be charged on summons to appear at Frankston Magistrates’ Court at a later date.

ONE of the Mornington Peninsula’s oldest music makers, the Frankston Peninsula Folk Club, is moving with the times and hoping to broaden its appeal to a younger demographic. The club offers a way for professional and amateur musicians to perform and jam and fosters musical development through workshops and training sessions. Club spokeswoman Julie Meaden said the club planned to introduce a youth award next year to draw more young and aspiring musicians to the club. She said folk clubs all over the country were widening their audiences and memberships with more modern, funky interpretations of folk and acoustic music, and were no longer strictly the domain of flannel-wearing fiddle players. While the club is still true to its mission of providing entertainment and contributing to the community “through the folk genre”, Ms Meaden said the club provided opportunities for people of all ages and interests to learn music, play music and enjoy music. “We provide a much-needed platform for not only featured professional and semi-professional musicians, but also a vast pool of amateur performers who just love to ‘do their stuff’.” The club was formed 1984 with an aim to promote original acoustic music and poetry. President Max Amos said the club offered anyone interested in music an opportunity to get involved.

A BITTER argument over lease terms that endangers a multi-million dollar upgrade to the Frankston Basketball Stadium has erupted publicly while building contractors on site wait to begin work. A meeting behind closed doors last Wednesday (15 March) between council CEO Dennis Hovenden, mayor Cr Brian Cunial, council officers, councillors and Frankston & District Basketball Association representatives failed to reach agreement on new lease terms between council and the association. The association is pitching in $1 million of its members’ money in to a $12.7 million first stage upgrade of the Seaford basketball hub and believes council is now engaged in “a cash grab” by also increasing rent payable at the council-owned land. Council has proposed increasing rent from about $30,000 annually to about $60,000 plus a 6 per cent take of future association revenue above $1 million, adding an estimated $120,000 each year to lease payments. After last week’s meeting, Cr Cunial launched an extraordinary attack on the not-for-profit association alleging the group has “a winner takes all” approach to lease negotiations. “Council is mindful of the community’s best interests and cannot be held to ransom over these matters,” the mayor said in a statement. The mayor’s statement noted: “The proposed lease arrangement allows for a much lower lease payment than at other like facilities -- $326,000 for six courts in Keilor, $191,000 for six courts in Boroondara, which are also consistent with courts in Casey and Knox”. Basketball association general manager Nathan

Jolly says council now expects association members, many of whom are also ratepayers, to repay council $4 million of ratepayers’ money originally pledged by council to the project. The federal government has promised $5.2 million and the state government $2.5 million towards the stadium upgrade. In a statement, Mr Jolly said the association had been trying to agree to revised lease terms with council since mid-2015. He said council is “comparing apples with pineapples” in its flawed comparison of rent charged by councils elsewhere to other basketball associations since the Frankston association originally paid for the original construction of facilities and is pitching in money to the upgrade which will see the addition of four new courts, bringing the total at the stadium to 10. Mr Jolly said accusations that the association is holding council to ransom are “incorrect and offensive”. He said the association is “trying to stop council double dipping from ratepayers via a blatant cash grab of members’ money”. “The only party holding the other to ransom is council who have tried to bully the FDBA with veiled threats that the project will fall over if the association does not sign its unsuitable lease,” Mr Jolly said in the letter. “Council have tried every trick in the book to box the FDBA board of management into signing unfavourable lease terms including emailing the FDBA board of management a draft letter addressed to the project’s builder outlining the project will be cancelled due to the FDBA not agreeing to a ‘commercial lease’ of building. “The stress this type of behavior has had on members of the FDBA board of management is unwarranted and unprofessional.”

Cloverleaf dinner A DINNER is being held to raise money to furnish and fit-out four apartments being built to house eight adults with disabilities as part of the Cloverleaf Project Supported Accommodation Project at Rosebud. State and federal governments gave money for the building whose future tenants are now being care for by their ageing parents.

Artists rally to save iconic site Liz Bell liz@mpnews.com.au PRESSURE is mounting to stop demolition of the iconic building that once housed Manyung Gallery in Mt Eliza. More than 400 people signed a petition in just three days to prevent the loss of the building. Mornington Peninsula Shire Council has approved plans to turn the Nepean Highway site into a childcare centre, but demolition orders were put on hold until 31 March after the owner of neighbouring Licciardo’s Bar and Grill, Rob Licciardo, took the matter to the Victorian Civil and Administrative Tribunal. Archaeologist and Mt Eliza resident, Peter Jupp, who organised the petition, said the building should be recognised for its historical and architectural significance, and he planned to approach Heritage Victoria to attempt to have the building heritage listed. Mr Jupp said many artists would join a demonstration to save the building at 2pm on Sunday (26 March). “This is an iconic building because of its architectural importance and its association to the Montsalvat era, but it has also been a very important part of the artistic development of the peninsula, with many, many artists having strong connections to the gallery,” he said. “If you want to build something you’re required to put up notices and people can make submissions, but it seems there’s no similar public consultation required when it comes to demolition.”

Gallery call: Artist Terrence Hadler wants Manyung Gallery, Mt Eliza, preserved in recognition of its role in fostering the development of artists on the Mornington Peninsula. Picture: Yanni

Mr Jupp said the support from the public had been overwhelming, with hundreds of peninsula residents and visitors reconnecting to the building and its importance as a part of the peninsula’s history. Peninsula artist Terry Hadler, artistin-residence for more than 14 years when Manyung Gallery was a tenant

in the building, says it was purposebuilt as a gallery in the 1960s and should be recognised for its importance in fostering and supporting artists. “I have taught hundreds of artists from the site and it’s been an important part of the area’s artistic history,” he said.

Mr Hadler said the building itself, with its distinctive dome turret, beautiful stained glass by peninsula artists Ted Moran, and courtyard with feature brickwork, was outstanding, and a “desired exhibiting location” for artists around Victoria for many years. Mornington Peninsula Shire did not respond to requests for comment.

Owners defend designs Liz Bell liz@mpnews.com.au

Run ready: Mornington Peninsula Shire councillor Rosie Clark, the mayor Bev Colomb, Geoff Nyssen and Cr Sam Hearn at the official launch of the run and fun festival held at Mt Eliza Deli.

Running at the reserve A RUN and fun festival in Mt Eliza next Sunday (26 March) to raise money for people affected by multiple myeloma is likely to become an annual event. Event Organiser Geoff Nyssen said more than 300 people had already signed up for the scheduled 5km and 10km running and walking events at Emil Madsen Reserve, Wooralla Drive. The day will include a kids’ dash, skate, BMX

and scooter competitions, as well as stalls and refreshments. “We’re extremely excited about this event and the awareness it will bring to this illness,” Mr Nyssen, who was diagnosed with the terminal blood cancer in 2014, said. For details call Geoff Nyssen on 0423 838 374 or go to mymounteliza.org.au.

HOMEOWNERS in Mt Eliza’s prestigious Ranelagh Estate have defended their rights to embrace modern architecture in the wake of claims that new developments are changing the character of the 1920s “garden estate”. Their claims come in the wake of protests from a group opposed to what it calls “inappropriate” development (“Bid to stunt growth of ‘garden estate’”, The Times 6/3/17). The Ranelagh Residents Association and several other property owners have appealed to the Victorian Civil and Administrative Tribunal (VCAT) against a planning application for a two-storey house in Rendlesham Av. The association, led by architect Victoria Grounds, is trying to retain what is says is the estate’s unique neighbourhood character. The estate was designed in the 1920s by renowned architect Walter Burley Griffin and is known for its low density housing and development overlays that protect the parks and gardens and nature strips. Michael Poulter, whose planned Rendlesham Av house is the subject of the VCAT appeal, said the association had no right to “deprive a hard-working, tax-paying family” of their dream. Mr Poulter said he commended the association for its work on keeping units out of the area, but believes “Victoria Grounds is completely out of touch on this one”. “The reality is that change is upon us all the time,” he said. Mr Poulter established the Bluestone Lane Vineyard in Balnarring 20 years ago and sold up to buy the Rendlesham Av double block two years ago. He and his wife hope to build their retirement house on the site and another house for their daughter and her autistic child, who requires full-time home care. He said the two-storey house he planned to build was not a “monstrosity” and would retain significant garden space in keeping with the “garden suburb”

ideals. He said the planned building’s street height was 6.400 mm less than many of the neighbouring two-storey houses. The association has lodged the appeal on the grounds that the development will results in “visual bulk”, is contrary to neighbourhood character, and contradicts the shire’s own planning scheme framework. The owner of another house under construction which was the subject of an objection to council by the association, has also defended property owners’ rights to build within the limits of their legal obligations. The man, who preferred not to be named, said he had gone through all necessary planning requirements in order to build his family home. “Ms Grounds of all people should acknowledge that design and people’s preferences change in time,” he said. He said his new dwelling reduced the site coverage from the previous “termite ridden” dwelling that was on the property, and adhered to all planning overlays. While the council’s design and development protection overlay (DDO3) requires that “proper regard” is given to established streetscapes, and development patterns and be “responsive to the environment, site conditions and character of coastal villages”, the heritage significance of the estate was limited to the road reserve and nature strips. The house owner said insinuations that planning overlays were being ignored or watered down incorrectly suggested that he had done something wrong. “We went through the planning process as required by council and were made to undertake various amendments as a result of objections by the Ranelagh Residents Association,” he said. He said development was helping to improve the area, as all new dwellings were required to plant native vegetation, preferably indigenous, as part of the landscape plans. Ms Grounds said the fault lies with the council’s approval of plans that contravened conditions of the development overlay. “What is the point of having this overlay if it is ignored?”.

A Mornington Cup for the ages A FIELD of Australia’s best stayers will have to fend off the challenge of an international raider for the first time in the 70th year of the running of the $300,000 Ladbrokes Mornington Cup. The world’s largest racing operation, Godolphin, headed up UK-based trainer Charlie Appleby, has brought a three-horse contingent to Australia this autumn, with six-year-old entire The Gold Trail (pictured) set to contest the 2400m Mornington Cup on March 25 in the hope of gaining a ballot free run in the prestigious BMW Caulfield Cup (2400m) later this year. The fact that Appleby, who cleaned up in last year’s Spring Racing Carnival with five winner, has chosen the Mornington Cup as the rising star’s international autumn target speaks volumes for the standing of the race. On his latest outing, The Gold Trail defeated fellow Godolphin galloper Prize Money over 2400m at Meydan in the UAE while Prize Money in turn has since defeated Postponed, a Group 1 champion and one of Europe’s best middle distance runners, confirming the significance of The Gold Trail’s victory. “[The] Gold Trail has got better physically year on year and we were very impressed with what he did in his previous two starts,” Appleby said

over the phone from the UK. “You can’t beat taking an older horse down to Australia with that experience under their belt.” “The ground will hopefully be quick which will suit this horse

because he likes quick ground. I think that he’ll be useful over there. Godolphin however are not the only ones chasing ballot exemption granted to the Mornington Cup victor for this year’s Group 1 BMW

Caulfield Cup, with two-time Mornington Cup runner-up Big Memory looking to go one better this year. Tony McEvoy’s iron gelding has been denied victory by less than a length in the two most recent editions

of the race, but the in-form trainer believes that could be an advantage this time around. “My horse is very effective at that track, it’s very much a horses for courses track,” McEvoy said. “I can guarantee that those international horses have never raced on a track as tight as this one. “We can only prepare our horses as best we can. I’m very happy to be back for a third crack at this race.” The field is also expected to include the Ladbrokes Mornington Cup Prelude quinella of Boom Time and Goldstream. Boom Time recently finished sixth in the $1.5 million Australia Cup (2000m), while Goldstream will likely join stablemate Cadillac Mountain as Champion trainer Darren Weir’s key Cup chances. Robert Hickmott’s Assign, who defeated Big Memory to claim the Herbert Power Stakes in October, is also a likely starter. The $120,000 Listed Ladbrokes Hareeba Stakes (1200m) will support Mornington’s richest race on the program while punters will also be treated to a host of other premium races including the Mornington Jeep & Nissan Guineas (1600m), Martin Collins Fibretrack Sires for two-yearolds (1500m) and the Final of the Mitavite Challenge (1600m).

Director resigns, trustees intervene Neil Walker neil@mpnews.com.au THE director of McClelland Gallery and Sculpture Park has resigned and the trustees of McClelland Gallery and Sculpture Park will meet artists previously told to vacate premises to review leases at Studio Park, Langwarrin. Gallery director John Cunningham met representatives of artists’ guilds in February to advise the guilds that their leases would not be renewed in June (“Artists left without studios”, The Times 6/3/17). Gallery deputy director Lyn Johnson confirmed director John Cunningham’s exit. “The trustees are currently reviewing the matter of the tenancy of the guilds and this was communication to the guilds last week,” Ms Johnson said in a statement on Friday. The deputy director did give any reason for Mr Cunningham’s resignation. Artists, lapidarists, spinners, weavers and woodturners have been leasing premises for about $2000 a year per guild at the park’s grounds since the 1970s. Community studios were introduced by the founding trustees of the gallery. Mr Cunningham last year unveiled plans to introduce “glamping” — an upmarket version of camping — to the site.

It is not known if this concept will now be pursued. Mr Cunningham, who was formerly deputy director of the Regional Cultural Centre and manager of the Letterkenny Arts Centre in Ireland and Paul Hughes Fine Art gallery in London, succeeded Robert Lindsay as McClelland Gallery and Sculpture Park in April 2015. He was unable to be contacted for comment before publication. In 2004, Mr Lindsay said the gallery and sculpture park faced “a funding crisis” following the death of major patron Dame Elisabeth Murdoch who contributed a $400,000 annual grant each year, 40 per cent of the gallery’s then operating costs of $1 million. The McClelland Gallery Trustees are chair Mary Delahunty, deputy chair Susie Hamson, treasurer Hayley Underwood, John Calvert-Jones, Ian Hicks, Frankston Council CEO Dennis Hovenden, Julie Kantor, Patrick Baker, Tom McMahon, Lisa Roet and John Simpson. McClelland Gallery was the site of the bohemian Harry McClelland’s painting studio. His sister, Annie May bequeathed the land and holdings to honour her brother’s memory by establishing the Harry McClelland Art Gallery and Cultural Hall. The gallery opened in 1971. Harry’s studio is still in the grounds. — with Fran Henke

Club challenge: Gordon Sanders (right) congratulates the winners, Peter Handley (third right) and the ‘Handley Hounds’, of the community bowls challenge at Mt Eliza.

Team effort bowls ‘em over THIS year’s six-week team challenge at Mt Eliza Bowls Club attracted 26 teams, up from 10 when the competition began last year. Coordinator Gordon Sanders said residents had embraced the idea of competing in 45-minute games, which allowed friends and families to enjoy the social and competitive side of the game, even with little former experience. He said the club had recently installed two synthetic greens with

Western Port C r a f t E x p o

lights, and started the challenge to recruit players and make the most of the warmer days and evenings while they lasted. “We got 26 teams this year, which meant more than 100 non-bowlers filling our greens every Tuesday night.” But with team members being allowed to change each week, the total number involved exceeded 150. Mr Sanders said last Tuesday was the final night of the event, with the

team on top of the leader board getting the “dubious” honour of having their name added to the trophy – a large porcelain pelican nesting on a bowl and with a bowls jack in its mouth, now on show at Mt Eliza Bendigo Bank. He said many of the competitors had developed good skills and were now asking “what are we going to do on Tuesday nights after next week?” Liz Bell

Sorrento’s heritage faces a colourful, shopping future As a life-long visitor to the Mornington Peninsula and long-time resident of Sorrento and Rye, I cannot but be amused by the current kerfuffle over the paint colour of the façade of the food business in the old mortuary beside the Koonya Hotel, Sorrento (“Red faces over shop colour” The News 14/3/17). As a teenager I was naïve enough to believe that, as the First Settlement in Victoria, heritage values and the preservation of the character of the Sorrento township were of paramount importance. However, as the years have passed, I have witnessed the degradation of the village with numerous inappropriate developments in the main street, including but not confined to the entirely distasteful units permitted to be constructed on the approaches to the shopping centre. Retail buildings have been built in the shopping precinct without any regard for aesthetics, let alone harmony with each other or adjacent heritage buildings, in pursuit of the holy dollar. And now, a tower to be constructed behind the historic Continental Hotel. With more than 30 dress and clothing shops in the town, Sorrento has been reduced to a transplanted Toorak destination for fashionistas, rather than a culturally sensitive historical destination. Given the above, I see that no matter what colour the food business is painted, it will not make Sorrento any less palatable. What next? MacDonalds? John Adamson, Rye

The carbon myth It is a worry when people like Patrina Fredriksen and others, who obviously are beholden by the human caused climate change deniers in our present federal government, are trying to perpetuate the myth that renewable energy production is too insecure to give it a go (“Majority ignored” Letters 14/3/17). This is a great furphy being spread by the vested interests of the old carbon mining lobby around the globe. The opposite is actually true. Renewable energy is becoming more affordable and with the right backup, battery power storage or gas fired standby generation would give us energy security without damaging our biosphere even further. The problem with our energy market is that ever since privatisation of most of our electricity and gas production and distribution, the average power bill has gone up. And without enough investment by these private entities to guarantee sufficient supply of these essential services to the public it is easier to blame renewable energy for the systemic failures of privatisation. This can all be traced back to the present federal and some state governments’ preoccupation with coal, which created uncertainty in the marketplace for the electricity producers. Good on South Australia for showing the way by commissioning these solutions. I just

THE shop in Sorrento’s main street which, according to its owner, was painted after receiving the go ahead - a permit - from Mornington Peninsula Shire. The shire says it is working with the owner “to look at potential options to remove the paint”.

hope the proposed infrastructure will be kept in governments hands to rein in the greed of the electricity market. So Patrina Fredriksen, as one of the many who think human caused climate change is real, I would advise you when quoting next from Dorothy Mackellar’s poems to make sure it is correct. This is from a new Australian who bothered to immerse himself in Australia, a still great place, and hoping we can keep it that way with good old Australian give it a go inventiveness. Rupert Steiner, Balnarring

Rising seas Good to see Michael Free lifting his head out of the volumes of customs regulations to defend one of his cobbers. (“Debate warms up” Letters 7/3/17). It was never suggested that his mate was a member of One Nation on his stance against climate change facts. If Mr Free would care to watch credible television programs or read a national newspaper where you don’t have to check the date at the top, he would see ice caps and glaciers melting, unseasonal weather patterns and low lying islands actually being encroached upon by rising seas. Next he will be saying that the moon landing was generated by Hollywood. We don’t need dodgy figures being espoused by scientists too willing to appease the mining companies with dubious claims. No doubt readers remember the scientists who claimed that smoking wasn’t bad for your health. They, like the climate change denying scientists, were and are in the thrall of a company pedalling misinformation. Is Mr Free one of these people who don’t give a rats about what happens after they’re dead? He is red over the Greens but I think he’s more blue than any other colour. Malcolm Roberts of One Nation demands empiric evidence, not some Greens bloke.

I wonder if Mr Free would like to subject the people of the Latrobe Valley to a continual cloud hanging over their heads? Would he like to subject them to possible fatal lung problems? John Cain, McCrae

Further research John Cain is indulging in what is called “kill the messenger” when unwelcome news arrives (“Sun, wind, not coal” Letters 28/2/17). I mentioned Professor Lance Endersby’s conclusion at a recent seminar and was told that his paper had been disregarded because the level of CO2 in the sea was actually found to increase on warming and not decrease as he suggested would happen. So I did further research of experimental facts. I found the reason for this paradox was that the CO2 in the sea is not held as a gas but in ionic form and hence there was no tendency to bubble out. However, as the water temperature increases, the amount of CO2 it can take in decreases. Since CO2 is being continually created, as Brian A Mitchelson explained (“Lot of hot air” Letters 28/2/17), the level of CO2 in the air must increase and it reaches quite startling high levels until its partial pressure forces the gas to enter the warmer water. The whole process is really a chemical reaction that goes on until the level of CO2 in the sea and in the air achieves a balance. I believe this happens quite quickly and in general there is always nearly a balance. This is quite contrary to what the IPCC (Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change) is saying. It now requires some research to confirm that what I have laid out is correct. If confirmed the idea of burning fossil fuels affecting the climate will be falsified as scientists say when they disprove a hypothesis. Past research figures show that CO2 varies hourly, daily, monthly and seasonally and can sometimes reach thousands of parts per million (ppm) compared with the average of 380400ppm at present. Henry Broadbent, Somers

Reserve warning I finally received a copy of the Melbourne Water’s first right of refusal notification to Mornington Peninsula Shire of land within this shire surplus to Melbourne Water requirements, when the shire made submissions to the government land standing advisory committee hearing on Friday 10 February. I was shocked to see that Melbourne Water has 85 parcels of land surplus to requirements within the shire. Most are currently used by the community as passive recreation areas. Unlike other councils, where the address, suburb and legal description of the surplus land in their area was given, our shire was only given the description of land as “85 various parcels of land from Baxter to Fingal”. Within that description, a Rosebud parcel of land - 181 Jetty Road to Hermann St - was the first to be put through the state government’s fast track process for rezoning to general residential. The next parcel from that lot to be considered for rezoning could just be that open passive recreation area you currently use. Think about it. I urge anyone concerned about this issue to contact Melbourne Water or Nepean MP Martin Dixon. Doris Campbell, Mornington Peninsula Ratepayers’ and Residents’ Association

Dog problems I applaud Lee Chapman (“Dogs rule” Letters 7/3/2017) raising concerns about dogs being off leash despite signs stating that dog owners should have their dogs on a leash during daylight saving between 7am and 7pm along Safety Beach. All this summer I have seen most owners deliberately ignore the signs that appear along the Balnarring and Somers beaches and let their dogs roam freely between 9am and 7pm, so it seems that there is no council representatives providing education about the rules otherwise things might be slowly changing. Late last year on the Somers beach a dog came up and bit my ankle. When I raised this issue with the owner, who was about 50 metres away, she said “my dog would never have done this”. She still denied it despite seeing my reddened ankle and choose to ignore my comment that “you couldn’t have seen it because you were too far away and you did not being effective control over your dog”. Dog owners who let their dogs off a lead during the prohibited times either know they are doing the wrong thing or will always say that they are responsible and have effective control but they clearly do not either know or understood the definition: “a dog must be close to you and in sight at all times and respond to your commands (RSPCA Australia)”. As well as the safety concerns I often see dogs faeces along the beach so clearly the dog owners have also failed to pick up after their pet. It is time the council takes resident’s concerns seriously and actually backs up its regulations with action. Blair Heading, Somers

Renewable future The tide has turned. Clearly South Australia, fed up with false information from the Prime Minister [Malcolm Turnbull] and the Minister for the Environment [Josh Frydenberg] about their renewable electricity and the lack of any action and plans for Australia’s future energy needs have decided to go it alone. They have joined forces with [Tesla CEO] Elon Musk to establish banks of batteries to even out the power supplies. Coal and gas companies will have to recognise that the future lies with renewables which, if for no other reason, once established, will be cheaper. The public is now realising that the long held belief “that growth is the all and be all” is no longer relevant. Scientists like [David] Suzuki have demonstrated that companies do not have to grow to be successful. Having slammed the South Australian plans Josh Fridenberg has taken out of the bottom drawer plans to increase Victoria’s hydro-electricity scheme by up to 50 per cent. Let us hope that citizens will realise that opening up more coal mines like Adani’s [Queensland] project are just not on. Those in government who support more coal will find they are short term politicians. Our environment, especially World Heritage sites like the Great Barrier Reef, can no longer survive with the pressure of increased water temperatures, brought about by an increase in CO2 heating the atmosphere and oceans. Coal is largely responsible. Peter Strickland, Bittern

WHAT’S NEW...

Red Hill Show - all for fun, and fun for all SATURDAY, March 11, the show grounds were transformed into a colourful, appetizing and entertaining spectacle for the whole family. The Mornington Peninsula was on show! Initial estimation suggests that around 7,500 people attended the 89th Red Hill Show, many of those making the trip from Melbourne and further afield. Clear skies and perfect weather set the scenes for the ideal day out. Our community was the focus of this year’s celebration with a record number of local groups and exhibitors participating.

The skilled artisans of the McClelland Spinners & Weavers and Woodturners Guild educated and inspired the crowd. St Georges Anglican Church and the Red Hill Scouts served delicious Devonshire teas. The Red Hill Tennis Club, Main Ridge Bowls & Petanque, the CFA and Baluk Arts ran free activities and creative workshops. We had a record number of entries from the schools and scout groups this year from Flinders Christian, Dromana Secondary, Chiro Christian and Elizabeth Murdoch Colleges to the Tyabb

Scouts just to name a few. Special congratulations to the miniature goats of Padua College on their selection as Best in The Grand Parade by our Mayor Cr Bev Colomb. The woodchop grandstands were packed to the rafters as Blake Meyer took out the Victorian 325ml Tree Event Championship. For the second year in a row, Cooper, the Border Collie cross took out the Dog High Scramble in the record jump of 3.05m. The sound stage was a hit this year with the African drumming workshop, the

grooves of The Jackson Four and Rob Papp & Blueshead setting the tones. Max Allen captivated the crowd on the MPP sponsored stage during his Cider Masterclass. The cider show finished with 53 cider entries from across Australia with Kangaroo Island Ciders taking out the Best Apple Cider in Show and Harcourt Perry & Cider Makers Best Perry in Show. Richard Cornish from Gourmet Traveler entertained the audience throughout the day with a host of judges and cooking demos.

On behalf of the Red Hill Agricultural & Horticultural Society, we would like to thank our incredible team of volunteers who coordinate this event and our wonderful sponsors. The significant donations of fresh produce and gifts we receive from local producers are passed on to our prize-winning exhibitors and celebrity chefs. This is a community event that we can all be proud of. See you all the same time next year.

SMARTER BOLDER FASTER


100 YEARS AGO THIS WEEK...

Half a million cases of apples bound for Great Britain Compiled by Cameron McCullough LICENCES are to be issued shortly by the Federal Government for the exportation to Great Britain of practically the whole of the surplus Australian apple crop. The arrangemnent made with the Imperial authorities is for the admission of 500,000 cases, It applies only to the present crop, however, and after July the British prohibition will be absolute unless conditions undergo a change. *** THE daylight saving scheme, which has aroused much opposition, particularly in country districts, will cease to operate at the end of the present week, On Sunday next, at 2am, the clocks in the Commonwetalth will be put back one hour. This means a reversion to standard time, which will operate during the winter months. If the act is not repealed in the meantime, time will again be advanced an hour on the last Sunday in September. *** SPORTSMEN have been in a quandary as to the day upon which they may commence to indulge in quail shooting this year. The quail season opens on Sunday, April 1. but Sundays are days upon which shooting of any kind is prohibited. The Fisheries and Game department has received many requests for enlightenment upon the question, and yesterday the chief inspector (Mr Lewis) stated that under the regulations of the department sportsmen were quite at liberty to shoot quail to their heart’s content on April 1 but that they would be liable to prosecution under the Police Offences Act, not only for actually shooting, but

forcarrying firearms on a Sunday. Obviously, then, sportsmen would have to possess their souls in patience until Monday. *** MR S. Beale, who has occupied the position of manager at the Frankston Gas Works for the last eleven years, owing to failing health, has been compelled to resign the position. Since his residence here he has always looked well after the interests of the company, and at the same time, as far as his health would permit, has interested himself in the welfare of the town. He was an active member of the School Board of Advice and if any treat was proposed for the children, he was always one of the foremost in carrying it out. The best wishes of the residents will follow both Mr and Mrs Beale to their future residence, and the speedy restoration to health of the former. Mr A. Brierley, the new manager, arrived here on Tuesday, and comes, with good credentials, from Daylesford, where he has occupied the position of manager of the gas works for the last twenty months. He has had long experience, having been engaged in the business for about twenty years previous to coming to this colony. Mr and Mrs Beale leave Frankston on Monday next. *** ANOTHER of the old colonists has gone to join the great majority in the person of Mr Olly, father of Mrs S. Sherlock of Frankston at the ripe old age of 87 years. The deceased was born in 1829 in

Norfolk, England, and came to the colony in 1848. He has lived with his daughter for the last 14 years, prior to that he resided at Mornington, following the occupation of an orchardist. By his kindly disposition he endeared himself to all with whom he came in contact, and for many years interested himself in temperance and Sunday School work, till old age gradually compelled him to relinguish them. He breathed his last peacefully on Friday last, and was buried on Sunday in the Mornington cemetery, alongside his wife who predeceased him some 17 years ago. Rev E, Tonkin officiated at the grave, the funeral arrangements being in the hands of Mr H. Gamble of Frankston. *** Echoes from the Front. WHERE ARE THE BOYS WE KNOW? A big mail was received in Frank ston this week from the front, all the boys writing cheerfully in spite of the frozen mud beds they take their rest in, and all the fearful hardships thay have endured through a long and bitter winter. Private Reg. Ritchie is in France working hard with the Ambulance Corps. He is standing the strain like a true Australian. Pte. Fred Murray, Somerville, is in France and is well. Mr Nicholls has received word that his son, Pte. T. Nicholls is seriously ill. Charley Brody reports “all well” from France. Jim Lambert is suffering from bad eyes, cause unknown.

R. Berry is in England suffering from Trench feet. Pte. McIlroy is in Caulfield Hospital, doing well, Cpt. H Davey, Mt Eliza, is in England, wounded, and Pte. W. Davey, who has been ill, is recovering. Sid. Marsh is doing his bit in England and is qualifying for an excursion to the South Pole. He reckons the cold in England is the limit. Mrs Darcy, who is a widow, living in Frankston, has five sons serving with the colors. H. Male of Mornington Junction, is returning to Australia. Bert Stephens, whose injured knee has made him unfit for duty, is returning shortly. Sapper G. Patterson is in Paris, under the care of two specialists. Pte. E. Burton writes that he is well. Pte. Alan Young writes:– “We are ‘out back’ again, and are billeted in a village far a while, after a fairly strenuous time. I expect we will not be here long. Am keeping well so far, though I feel the cold a good deal, and it is a great job to try to keep dry, especially about the feet. During the last few days I have met Ted Reynolds, and Roger Burton. Ted looks fairly well but old Roger was suffering with his feet. I also met Percy Thompson. While up near ‘the line’ I met “Smitho”; he was just the same, though a bit thinner. But the mud round his camp was enough to make anyone thin He told me he cried for the first time in his life a while back, when he was billeted in a town occupied by French people and which was being shelled now and again by

Fritz. About half a dozen little girls were playing in the street, just near “Smitho”, when a shell came over. It landed among the children killed four outright, and wounded the other two so severely that they died shortly afterwards. “Smitho” said he picked up one of the wounded ones, and she said “It’s all right Australia, I’m not frightened” and died almost immediately. I could not imagine “Smitho” crying, but the tears were in his eyes while he was telling me about it. I met Harry Covington about a week ago, but he has gone to England on leave. He is still in the A.S.C., and seems to have a pretty good job though still a Private. I have been made a bomber–goodness knows why–so old Fritz had better look out next time I get near him. The bombs we use now shake things up I can tell you.” Sergt. R. Gray is in the best of health, in France. Word was forwarded on Tuesday to Mrs Elliott, of Langwarrin, that her son, Private Mat Elliott, had been killed at the front in France. General regret was expressad in Frankston when the news became known, as Private Elliott was generally liked. He was a prominent member of St. Paul’s Club, and he entered heartly into the social life of Frankston. “Sandy” Bray is still going strong. He spends his spare time in ice skating. *** From the pages of the Mornington Standard, 24 March 1917

THE MEANING OF EXISTENCE... AND OTHER SHORT STORIES

An open letter to the Tyabb Junior Football Club By Stuart McCullough I SHOULD have said something sooner. The enormity of the occasion was such that to have raised my concerns at the time would have seemed like nitpicking. Disrespectful, even. But the passage of years has lent a certain perspective. Things that were once unknowable have come in to sharp focus. It’s that clarity that leads me to write to you now, as I ask you to consider righting the most egregious of wrongs. You may not recall, but I played several seasons with the Tyabb Junior Football Club. Mostly I remember training two nights a week under the spotlights and heading off on Sunday mornings to play. We were always cold. Often we lost. There were matches when the margin of our defeat was so great that it resembled a phone number. Very occasionally, we tasted victory and it was even sweeter than the quarter time oranges. That these victories were the result of a misunderstanding on the part of the other team as to the location of the venue resulting in a forfeit mattered little. A win is a win. So long as they get your name right, that is. I took it all very seriously, even if my main skills were falling over and kicking into the man on the mark. I was, I feel, something of a specialist in this respect. However unorthodox my approach, I must have been doing something right because I was bestowed with the ‘Team Manager’s’ award on no fewer than four occasions. Back then I thought these were the first tentative steps towards even greater sporting glory: a Brownlow, a gold medal, perhaps my own line of sportswear. None of it came to pass. With the benefit of

PAGE 44

time, I now know that my time playing for Tyabb is where I peaked. It has been, truth be told, downhill ever since. I know what you’re thinking. The ‘Team Manager’s’ Award is a fair way

Western Port News 21 March 2017

off ‘Best and Fairest’. It’s the trophy considered by many, not least me, as the ‘thanks for coming anyway’ award. That I won this award on four occasions shows just how deeply the club

appreciated my willingness to make up the numbers despite a complete absence of any discernable talent for the game. Perhaps it was the nature of the honour itself that largely accounts for the resulting atrocity. The Club’s Best and Fairest/ Pie Night was always a big occasion. The first time I went, I recall feeling slightly awkward not just because of the uncertainty inherent in a gala event of this kind but also as the only nine year old in attendance to have worn a tuxedo. The ‘Team Manager’s’ Award came up early in the evening. Much as the award for ‘Best Make-Up: Eyeliner in a Foreign Film starring a Camel named Dennis’ is presented at the Oscars before the famous people have had a chance to plant their backsides in their seats, my name was announced as a crowd milled around the pie-warmer. Stumbling towards the stage, it’s a miracle that I didn’t resort to the skill that had served me so well throughout the home and away season and immediately fall over. I didn’t have a speech prepared. My decision to try and improvise a short poem cast a pall of silence over the crowd. Amidst the fug of awkwardness that followed, I failed to notice something of catastrophic significance. Had I not been so desperate to get off stage and resume my seat, I would have spotted that the ‘Team Manager’s’ trophy had been award to ‘Stewart’ rather than ‘Stuart’. It’s the kind of error that makes the whole ‘Moonlight versus La La Land’ shemozzle look like little more than a minor clerical error. It’s hard to tell someone that you value their contribution to the team – no matter how flawed

or prone to being overcome by gravity that contribution may be – if you don’t even know their name. The next time I won the award, the trophy was engraved with ‘S. McCullough’. I can respect that the organization decided to play it safe, but it still suggests some uncertainty as to how my name was spelled. The only way it could have been worse is if the award simply read ‘Give it to the guy that falls over all the time’. The third time I won, it should have been clear that something truly magnificent was occurring. It’s rare that someone can receive what is ostensibly an encouragement award several years in a row. That’s like winning ‘Best New Artist’ at the Grammys three times running. It’s simply unheard of. But despite this, the award was again given to ‘Stewart’. The fourth and final trophy again played it safe with ‘S. McCullough’. As a result, it means exactly half the trophies I’ve ever won, have the wrong on the name on them. I’d like to think it’s never too late. The Club can still right this most extreme of wrongs, by re-awarding the Team Manager’s trophies for 1982 and 1984 to the right person. It will be just like that Brownlow ceremony except in Tyabb and there will be pies. For my part, I’ll be gracious; avoiding a panicinspired impromptu poetry slam and have something resembling a speech at the ready. It’s time to set the record straight. I look forward to your earliest reply. Sincerely yours, Stewart Stuart McCullough P.S. Go Yabbies. stuart@stuartmccullough.com

Big batting Baxter: Baxter’s 272 runs looks like an impossible task for Mt Eliza. Picture: Rab Siddhi

Baxter can taste flag glory PROVINCIAL By IT Gully BAXTER are just two wickets away from MPCA Provincial premiership glory against Mt Eliza. The Mounties were still 100 runs short of the Baxter total of 272 at stumps on Sunday. They will head back to Tyabb this Saturday in the hope that Tim Clark (37no) will carry them to the promise land. It is highly unlikely though. Baxter are on the verge of winning their fourth flag in less than 10 years – a sensational performance from the club.

On Saturday night at the end of the first day, Baxter had left themselves in a commanding position, batting for the entire day and finishing at 6/223. Dale Irving was set at the crease, unbeaten on 35 after hitting four boundaries and two sixes, while Ben Brittain was still yet to get off the mark. On Sunday, Irving went on to make 47 and Brittain contributed 25, helping Baxter to a strong total. Earlier on day one, openers Joe Rule and skipper Daniel Warwick set up the win for Baxter in the opening session.

Despite having 113 overs to play with, Baxter came out with intent and attacked the Mt Eliza bowlers. Warwick went after the bowling and the pair put on a 98-run opening partnership with Warwick the first wicket to fall for 57 of 91 balls in the 29th over. Chris Brittain then came to the crease and was more than content to take a back seat to Rule, who opened the shoulders and started to let fly. Baxter went to tea on the opening day at 1/150 with Rule not out 78 off 104 balls. However, Rule was caught

behind off Justin Grant off the first ball after the tea break. From that point, Mt Eliza were able to slow down the scoring and pick up some key wickets to give themselves a chance at the end of the first day. Despite not doing a lot of training through the week due to injury, Shaun Knott still bowled 22 overs and finished the first day with 1/47. He finished with 1/58 from 30 overs. Nick Baron was the pick of the bowlers, however, snatching 3/75 from 30-plus overs, while Justin Grant snared 3/48.

The Mounties needed to occupy the crease for 45 minutes before tea on the second day. They couldn’t afford to lose a wicket. However, Dale Irving snared 2/5 from his first six overs and Ben Brittain picked up 1/4 to have the Mounties 3/22 at tea. When Justin Grand and Tim Strickland went, it was 5/81 from 23 overs. Lyle House (40) and Russell Fulton (20) offered some nice resistance and Shaun Knott contributed 25, while Clarke was unbeaten on 37 at stumps.

Parkers in strong position in District DISTRICT By IT Gully DELACOMBE Park are in a winning strong position in the MPCA District premiership against Red Hill. The Hillmen, the best team in the competition all season, still need more than 230 runs with just seven wickets in hand against the Parkers in the final day of the match at Graydens Rd this

Saturday. With skipper Simon Dart still unbeaten at the crease, one wouldn’t be wise to write off the Hillmen just yet. However, there is no doubt that the parkers are in the box seat after Joel Malcolm finished with an unbeaten 104 and Jon Guthrie hit 94. The Parkers finished their allotted 113 overs on 8/307. Delacombe Park left themselves in

a very strong position at the end of the first day’s play. Nick Christides opened the batting with Guthrie and in typical fashion, he dominated the Red Hill bowling attack from the get-go. The Parkers got away to a flier with Christides hitting 42 of the first 53 runs scored, eventually being caught on the boundary line for 42 after crunching five fours and a six.

Matt Van Wijk played a good support role to Guthrie before being caught behind off of the bowling of Glenn Collett for 13. This brought Joel Malcolm to the crease and between he and Guthrie, they took the score along to 2/156 at the end of the days’ play. Malcolm, who scored an unbeaten 81 in the semi-final against Main Ridge, was again unbeaten at the close

of the first day on 31, while Guthrie was not out 59. They added a further 75 and 35 runs each respectively. Brent Martin bowled 25 overs on the first day for a return of 14 maidens and figures of 1/24. Collett bowled 19 overs for a return of 1/43. Jamie McCall picked up three wickets for the Hillmen on Sunday.

Blues put YCW to the sword in grand final SUB-DISTRICT By IT Gully HASTINGS has won the last ever MPCA Sub District Grand Final, humiliating Frankston YCW by more than 100 runs. And for the township of Hastings, it was more about adding a cricket pennant to the footy pennant it won last season. The Blues bowled out the Stonecats for just 99 on Sunday after posting a score of 214.

The game was looking to be an intriguing battle at the end of the first day’s play on Saturday night. In a see-sawing opening day which saw both sides have their purple patches, Hastings were 7/189 at the close of play. The Blues added a further 25 runs in 12 overs on Sunday at the resumption of play before being all out for 214. Nathan Hunt resumed at 34 on day two for the Blues and finished with 44. After being in some real trouble at 2/16 early on day one after winning

the toss and batting first, Hastings’ Jake Hewitt and skipper Rob Hearn were able to stem the tide for the Blues and get the game back on their terms. As it turned out, it proved to be a match winning partnership. At tea, after 44 overs the Blues were looking in control at 2/113 with Hearn on 58 and Hewitt on 42. However, after a 99-run partnership, Hearn was out for 60. Luke Hewitt became Brett Hudgson’s second wicket two runs later and when Jake Hewitt was run-out for 50,

the Blues were in a spot of bother at 5/134. Jake Hewitt was the second run out of the innings after Mitchel Floyd was run out for one with the score on 16. By the end of the first day’s play, Hudgson had taken four wickets for the Stonecats. His on the spot bowling made things happen and he was able to get his side back into the contest. YCW skipper Andrew Kitson finished with 3/45 while Hudgson finished with 4/23. While the Blues’ score wasn’t huge,

it was still 200-plus on the board that needed to be chased down. By 3pm on Sunday, the Stonecats were reeling with the dangerous Lai Leaunoa out for two and Kip Mulvogue, Joe Gotts and Jason Bedford back in the sheds. At tea the score was 4/46. Things didn’t improve a lot for the Stonecats, Hastings’ Isuru Dias claiming 5/38 as his side rolled the opposition for less than 100. What a year for Jake and Luke Hewitt – a cricket premiership to follow and footy premiership in September.

Comets v Mornington, Baxter v Rosebud Heart SOCCER

By Craig MacKenzie CHAMPIONSHIP aspirants Casey Comets and Mornington slug it out on Friday night at Comets Stadium in a blockbuster opening to the 2017 league season. Both sides have made significant changes to their squads during the offseason and the visitors have boosted their chances of a State 1 South-East title threepeat by improving both the quality and depth of their personnel. Both camps are keen to get off to a flyer in a season where the championship winner is offered a place in the second tier of the elite NPL competition for 2018. At the heart of Mornington’s defence is the much lauded duo of Simon Webster and Steve Elliott and their Casey counterparts are Nemanja Lojanica and former Langwarrin captain Alex van Heerwarden, another formidable combination. The transfer coup of the season has been Ryan Paczkowski’s return to Dallas Brooks Park after a successful stint with NPL heavyweight Bentleigh Greens and “Patch” and van Heerwarden have a history so you can expect fireworks from their match-up. Mornington import Matthew Wade has returned to England to attend a wedding but is expected to return for the club’s round two league clash. Comets are hosting a pre-game function at 7pm featuring coaches and players from both teams and a special guest speaker. Tickets are $35 each and include finger food, beer, wine, soft drink and game entry. Email caseyevents@ outlook.com to make a booking. Once the dust settles at Comets Stadium the next day features another derby dustup when Baxter hosts Rosebud Heart in a much anticipated start to the State 4 South league season. Both clubs won promotion in 2016 with Heart winning every league game of an historic season and the visitors to Baxter Park go into this clash having won three of four derby meetings against Roy Kilner’s men. Baxter’s Mark Pagliarulo is expected to overcome a calf problem but his striking partner Liam Kilner received a bodyblow last week when ruled out for the season due to a bulging disc in his lower back. Pagliarulo will be partnered in attack by teenager Travis Ernsdoerfer from Bentleigh Greens who signed last week along with former Endeavour Hills midfielder Liam Tinsley. As we went to press Baxter was trying to complete the signing of young midfielder Jack Gallagher from Kingston City. The ace up Heart’s sleeve could be Italian midfielder Marco Cannella. Heart was waiting for his international clearance as we went to press and if it comes through in time the ASD Pro

Appio star will be thrust straight into the fray on Saturday. An excellent work rate and good distribution are hallmarks of his game and the coaching staff have been impressed in the four weeks in which he’s trained with the club. “I’m really excited about him and I think he could turn into a fantastic pick-up for us,” said Heart gaffer Scott Morrison. Peninsula Strikers embark on their promotion campaign when they clash with Eltham Redbacks at Centenary Park on Saturday. Boosting the senior squad with three imports and gun predator Aziz Bayeh says much about Strikers’ intentions in 2017 but now it’s time to walk the walk. Eltham won promotion last season and is celebrating its 50th year and there is no doubt that senior coach Paul Harris will field an organised and competitive outfit. Saturday is an historic day for Somerville Eagles as they make their State 5 South debut against Old Mentonians at Somerville Secondary College. “I spent two seasons with Heart so I know a fair bit about the sides in State 5 and Old Mentonians are well drilled and resilient and will make it tough for us,” said Eagles coach Neil Herd. “I’d still like to add a midfielder and a striker to the squad and we’re continuing to look for those types of players.” Langwarrin’s league campaign starts without highly rated central defender and former Macclesfield Town youth team captain Kieron Kenny who has returned to England for family reasons. Kenny is expected to miss two league games but is tipped to return alongside another central defensive recruit that he recommended to the Lawton Park outfit. Frankston Pines have been rocked by news that recruits Christopher L’Enclume and Cedric Permal are sidelined after their Mauritian clubs

Western Port News 21 March 2017

refused to authorise their international clearances and lodged protests with FIFA. It’s believed that FFA is representing Pines in this matter and the club has asked the national body if it can authorise provisional clearances until the standoff is resolved. On the FFA Cup front no local side remains in this year’s competition after Saturday’s fourth round. Mornington was a surprise 2-1 loser at home to Morwell Pegasus, Langwarrin went down 8-0 at home to NPL heavyweight Hume City while Comets lost 4-0 at home to NPL2 outfit Nunawading City. Morwell hit the front in the 10th minute after Mornington failed to clear a free kick and Samuel Gatpan spun around and hit a low left foot shot in off the far post. In the 59th minute a long ball into the Morwell area was partially cleared and Mornington midfielder Chris Reid met it on the volley and sent it wide of Morwell keeper Liam Andersen to make it 1-1. The decisive moment came in the 64th minute when Alpha Turay executed an acrobatic overhead kick following a corner to the back post for what proved to be the winner. Hume striker Nick Hegarty scored a hat-trick at Lawton Park. Other scorers were substitute Attila Ofli (2), Liam Boland, Anthony Bran and an own goal from Mat Luak. Nunawading’s scorers were Mitch Cooper (3) and Ivan Skoric.

Peninsula clubs Premiership players kick off local league season

kick off a new tradition

By Ben Triandafillou TWO peninsula football and netball clubs will play off in the first running of the Obrien Cup on Saturday 25 March. The Rye Football/ Netball Club and the Chelsea Football/ Netball Club will face each other in the Obrien Cup which is to be held at RJ Rowley Reserve, Rye. The event will add to the clubs long standing friendly rivalry with hopes for it to be held annually. “We traditionally play Edithvale-Aspendale in the Ted Jarrard Cup each year which has been going for about 20 years now so we hope we can have something similar to that with the Obrien cup,” Rye Football and Netball Club president, Mick O’Rourke said. The event will involve three football matches with the main event to start at 2 pm with the girls’ netball matches to begin at 10am. The clubs haven’t met since 2004 when they went into separate leagues but with the support of their sponsors, Obrien Real Estate, the clubs will finally meet again. “We are delighted to host the Obrien Cup, anything to help out our sponsors and put them out there. They’ve embraced the sporting community and are sponsoring our new scoreboard and we very are thankful for their support,” O’Rourke said. The clubs have faced each other 62 times with Chelsea leading the tally with 37 victories over the demons. The day will involve a free barbeque for the kids as well as face painting and other activities.

By Ben Triandafillou TWO AFL premiership players will be coming to the peninsula in April to play a few matches for local Nepean League football teams. The Pearcedale Football Club will have the ex-AFL stars Daniel Kerr and Barry Hall joining their line-up for a couple of one-off matches at the start of their season. Kerr, 33, spent his entire career at the West Coast Eagles and helped take the side to a one-point victory in the 2006 AFL grand final. Kerr will play his first match for the Tyabb Football Club on 01 April before slipping on the boots a week later for Pearcedale in the opening round of the Nepean league. Having felt the dominance of Brendon Fevola at full forward in last year’s Good Friday match against the Frankston Bombers, Pearcedale are hoping to turn the tables with Barry Hall joining the team and towering up front in the Good Friday clash on Friday 14 April. Hall, who has played for St. Kilda, the Sydney Swans and the Western Bulldogs, has had a remarkable career including captaining the Swans to their 2005 AFL grand final victory. “We are really excited to have them join us. Hopefully they’ll inspire the juniors as well as some of our own players,” Pearcedale Football Club president, Margaret Brown said. Almost 5000 people turned up for last year’s Good Friday match at Frankston Park where Fevola booted six goals. This year the Dales will have the privilege of hosting both matches at Tractor Park, Pearcedale. “They’ll be here for the day and Daniel Kerr will be giving a talk afterwards and Barry Hall will be talking at the luncheon and signing autographs,” Brown said. Tickets to the functions are available from the club.

Bowling club honours Victorian champion of champions

12341742-DJ10-17

By Ben Triandafillou THE Mornington Bowling Club hosted their annual Jack Glasser Day tournament to honour one of the peninsula’s finest bowlers on Sunday 19 March. The club continued their long tradition to remember Jack Glasser, who competed at the highest level of bowling and led Mornington to several titles during the 70’s. “He really was a great guy and talented coach and obviously a very good bowler,” Mornington Bowling Club Tournament organizer, Doug Brough said. Jack passed away in 1993 and the event has been running since then in his honour . He won the Champion of Champions title for Victoria in 1972 and played over 100 games for the state. Beginning his career at West Coburg, Glasser became a three time club champion during the period of 1954 and 1967 before joining Mornington in 1968. Glasser went on to become an eight time club champion at the Mornington Bowling Club and a four time Peninsula Bowling Association champions of champions. “He was a real gentleman, one of the old schoolers. He would do anything for you and was a wonderful guy. The family is still involved and they come down every year and play on the day,” Brough said. This year’s tournament saw 24 teams of four players competing and was fittingly won by the Glasser family. Stan, Sandra and their daughter Sharon with family friend Graeme Davies managed to come out on top in the Jack Glasser day tournament. “The day went very well and the weather was brilliant. Everyone enjoyed themselves and the Glasser family are going to continue to support the day which is great,” Brough said.

Racquet in hand for Moorooduc students By Ben Triandafillou MORE than 40 students from Moorooduc Primary School received brand new tennis racquets on Monday 20 March as part of Tennis Australia’s ANZ Tennis Hot Shots program. Mornington Peninsula Women’s Tennis International players, Lizette Cabrera and Priscilla Hon, presented the tennis racquets to the children in the afternoon with an on-court clinic held earlier in the day to teach some of the kids the basics to tennis. ANZ Tennis Hot Shots ambassador and Australian Fed Cup captain Alicia Molik is delighted to see so many

kids picking up and enjoying tennis. “It’s fantastic to see so many tennis racquets in the hands of young children, which really encourages them to jump on the tennis court for the first time. The School Partnership Program is accessible to any primary school in Australia and gives kids the opportunity to play tennis as part of their curriculum. Tennis is a fantastic sport for kids – and their families – to play as part of an active and healthy lifestyle,” Molik said. The day concluded with a school assembly with some lucky students presented with their new racquets provided by the Hot Shots program.

Hot shots: Priscilla Hon has a hit with Moorooduc Primary School kids.
