Bravery award FORMER Hastings jeweller Dermott O’Toole has been posthumously awarded the Star of Courage, Australia’s second highest bravery award for “acts of conspicuous courage in circumstances of great peril” in his shop during a failed robbery in which he lost his life. His wife Bridget O’Toole, and their sons Christian, Dale and Trent, and daughter-in-law Sally O’Toole accepted the award at Government House last Friday (17 November). “Award for slain jeweller” Page 6

Tighter rules in wake of flood risk Keith Platt keith@mpnews.com.au STRICTER planning rules are likely to be brought in for land around Western Port threatened by rising sea levels. The need to add a “land subject to inundation” (LSIO) overlay to the Mornington Peninsula’s planning scheme follows the release more than two years ago of a report identifying areas that will be affected by coastal

erosion, flooding, sea level rises and storm surges. The updated report identifies 710 properties that need to be covered in the overlay, including 136 houses at Hastings, 85 at Balnarring Beach and 13 at Somers. There are 40 commercial properties facing clouding at Hastings and one each at Somerville and Crib Point. At Flinders, Shoreham, Point Leo, Merricks Beach and Bittern the land

under threat is mainly rural or included in public reserves. The also warns that underground water supplies will increasingly be salt affected. “The balance of properties are community uses, infrastructure facilities, reserves, caravan parks, marinas or rural land,” Mornington Peninsula Shire’s planning services team leader Rosa Zouzoulas says in a report to this week’s Planning Services Committee

meeting.” Ms Zouzoulas recommends that the shire asks the Planning Minister Richard Wynne to support the proposed amendment to the peninsula’s planning scheme. She says adopting the overlay could reduce “events [that] can severely disrupt communities and in extreme cases, cause extensive damage to public and private property, agricultural losses, personal hardship and potential loss of life”.

Ms Zouzoulas said the Western Port Local Coastal Hazard Assessment report – released in June 2015 – “examined the potential impact of climate change on and around Western Port”. The report was undertaken by Melbourne Water, the Department of Environment, Land, Water and Planning (DELWP), South East Councils Climate Change Alliance and the four municipalities bounding Western Port.

It’s a big ‘yes’ for marriage equality Neil Walker neil@mpnews.com.au A SIZEABLE majority of voters across the federal electorates of Dunkley and Flinders backed samesex marriage in the marriage equality postal survey. The Australian Bureau of Statistics announced last Wednesday (15 November) that 61.6 per cent of eligible voters across the nation voted for the law to be changed to allow same-sex couples to marry and 38.4 per cent opposed the move. An ABS breakdown of voting showed 70 per cent of Flinders voters voted “yes” and 30 per cent voted “no”. The seat of Flinders is held by Liberal MP and Health Minister Greg Hunt. In the marginal seat of Dunkley, held by Liberal MP Chris Crewther, 72 per cent of voters backed marriage equality with 28 per cent voting no. Mr Hunt said in a statement last week: “I was one of those who voted yes and I will be one who supports the bill in Parliament in line with my own beliefs, the majority view of my electorate and the majority view of the country. “I understand and deeply respect that this view is not supported by every member of my community and that is why we will ensure that there is recognition of religious freedom within the bill.” Mr Hunt revealed two years ago he had changed his mind on samesex marriage since voting against a

private members bill in September 2012 to legalise marriage for gay and lesbian couples (“Hunt converts to same-sex marriage cause”, The News 25/8/15). Mr Crewther said he will push to ensure “equality under the law while simultaneously ensuring religious liberty and freedoms of speech, conscience and belief”. “I congratulate the yes vote getting up, both in Dunkley and nationally, in line with my own personal vote in the postal survey,” he said. “In line with the view in Dunkley and nationally, I will also be voting yes when the legislation is voted on

in Parliament.” Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull says he is confident same-sex marriage can be legalised in Australia by the end of the year. Some MPs want exemptions put in place to allow businesses and religious groups to be able to refuse to be involved in same-sex marriage wedding ceremonies. Mr Hunt said: “It is now our job as parliamentarians to respect the outcome of the vote and implement the will of the Australian people.” The ABS confirmed last week the non-binding postal survey cost taxpayers almost $100 million.

WHILE the federal government repeatedly refuses New Zealand’s offer to provide a home for 150 Manus Island refugees, activists have staged a protest over the Hastings office of Flinders Liberal MP Greg Hunt. Refugee Action Collective members climbed onto the office roof displaying banners with the words “Hey Hunt! Health = food, water, medicine and safety. Evacuate Manus!” Mr Hunt’s spokesman Mathew Langdon said: “All Australians have a right to protest, however there’s always a responsibility to do so within the law.” Watched by police, the protesters came down voluntarily after two hours. No arrests were made. “We are here today to draw attention specifically to the horrifically deteriorating health situation faced by refugees on Manus Island,” Refugee rights advocate Amanda Zivcic said. “These men have committed no crime and yet have been deprived of their freedom and their health for four long years. Ms Zivcic said Mr Hunt, who is also health minister, should “do your job

and evacuate these men, bring them here, and give them the health care they need and they’re entitled to”. “There are people with infections, a man with heart pain, a man having serious epileptic seizures, and another one with severe kidney stones. A vast proportion of these men also have mental health issues brought on by years of imprisonment at the hands of Australia. Refugees have been viciously attacked. And now, food is not being let in, the men are prevented from storing water, and all are dehydrated and starving.” Ms Zivcic said the government and the Labor opposition “need to answer for the situation they have created on Manus Island”. These prisons are constructed and funded by the Australian government, they’re staffed by Australians and it was Australia who dumped them there. And the new prison that the men are resisting being moved to in East Lorengau is no improvement on this, and it is even less secure than where they are now.” Stephen Taylor

Cr Payne takes over ‘paradise’

Award for mayor’s 3 terms RETIRING mayor Cr Bev Colomb, above, said at the Tuesday 14 November special meeting that it had been “an honour to guide the council and to serve the peninsula as mayor”. Cr Colomb – who received the Mayor Emeritus award for serving three terms – thanked the shire’s CEO Carl Cowie as well as volunteers, local government ministers and the community “for their support”. (Mr Cowie was not present as he is overseas on a $30,000 study tour.) “There have been many highlights throughout the year,” Cr Colomb said, citing the transition to LED street lighting, continuing work on Destination Rosebud, improvements to sporting venues across the shire and formulating the new council plan and health and wellbeing plan. “In my role, I’ve taken up the principle of ‘listen, learn and lead’,” she said.

“I’ve really benefited from the fresh views and ways of looking at things with such a good mix of councillors from all walks of life. “Councillors have all represented their wards well, and have also had a passion and focus on peninsula-wide issues. Through working together we have brought good practises to the table and I am looking forward to continuing to create the best mechanisms for us to do our full role as councillors.” Cr Colomb thanked councillors for their good will. “We have set the tone together by wishing to set a standard our community can be proud of,” she said. “I look forward to the next year working with my colleagues, officers and the community. After such a good year together I feel we are well placed to look after our residents and protect all that we love about our home.”

FORMER deputy mayor Cr Bryan Payne, of Nepean ward, is the new mayor of Mornington Peninsula Shire. The now retired Cr Payne, whose previous jobs included being CEO of several municipalities, was elected at the Tuesday 14 November council meeting, with Cerberus ward’s Cr Kate Roper named deputy mayor. Councillors Hugh Fraser and Antonella Celi nominated themselves for the mayoralty but were passed over for Cr Payne. Cr Simon Brooks, who is in Germany at a conference, was nominated for deputy mayor but lost out to Cr Roper. In his acceptance speech, Cr Payne thanked his colleagues for their “vote of confidence and support”. “It is a role in an orchestra of which the conductor has many talented players and their role is to make sure that they are playing in harmony and playing the same melody,” he said. “The present group of councillors has a great variety of skills, background and a wide range of ages. I can assure you this council is in good hands with this group of councillors.” Cr Payne takes over from Briars ward’s Cr Bev Colomb as mayor. “[She] is a perfect example of being a great conductor,” he said. “Her job as mayor is an inspiration for me to follow. It has been a pleasure to serve as her deputy.” Cr Payne said the Mornington Peninsula was the “greatest place on earth”. “With beaches, hills, agriculture – particularly wineries – brought

together by our green wedge you can truly say that we live in paradise: I’m the mayor of paradise”. “This council is committed to valuing, protecting and improving this unique environment. We are also willing to fight to achieve that, and we will continue to fight to achieve it similarly to what councils in the past have done. “This council is determined to ensure the services we provide are in accordance with our wonderful environment. We can only achieve that by listening to our communities, and developing policies and programs in accordance with the community’s aspirations. “Most importantly, we must deliver those services in accordance with best practices. I am confident our council, and our excellent staff, will not let the Mornington Peninsula down with our endeavours.” Stephen Taylor

Award for slain jeweller

Poet’s poems collected A FORMER bush walker turned bush poet will have her poetry preserved in print in a project that proves it is never too late to have written work published. Mary Lyons, 87, a former Mt Martha resident and keen walker in the Peninsula Bushwalking Club in the 1980s and 1990s is now mostly confined to a wheelchair at Somercare in Somerville but her love of life living amongst nature is vividly described in her poetry. She worked as a tobacco picker, hop picker and dairy hand. Husband Norm passed on after 54 years of marriage. Family friend Kev Cooper, whose mother also resides at Somercare, said he is gathering the bush poet’s work together to publish in an ebook next year. “My objective is simply to share Mary’s beautiful poetry with the world,” he said. The ebook, called Poetry of the Australian High Country, is written by Lyons from her life experiences living in the Victorian and Tasmanian bush over a 40-year period. Mr Cooper said The Henry Lawson Society poetry and literacy group, based in Kingston and headed by Tony Lambides-Turner, visited Somercare last month to hear readings of the poems. Ms Lyons was inducted as an honorary life member of the Peninsula Bushwalking Club in 1992 by then president Alan Miller. Current club president John Trevillian described Ms Lyons as “a real character with a great love

of the bush. Mary is a very unassuming character that would never chase the limelight”. “I rate Mary’s poetry works as equal to any of our Australian greats along with the likes of Banjo Paterson, Henry Lawson, CJ Dennis and Dorothea McKellar.” MEMORY ETERNAL A moment of magic as I turned to see The wonder of nature before me Pack-laden and wet, yet I stand, Enthralled by the beauty of this lovely land. Like a curtain of gossamer it drifted across the plain. The rain! Billowing like the finest silk from an open window pane. The mist! Gently it fell from a distant hole in the sky Dew kissed! Softly as a plaintive cry for an unattainable wish, I stood alone in this unforgettable time And knew a moment that was truly mine. Mary Lyons

AN “emotional and proud” Bridget O’Toole found it hard to describe her feelings after accepting the Star of Courage medal on behalf of her murdered husband, Hastings jeweller Dermot O’Toole. The honour was awarded by the Governor Linda Dessau at Government House on Friday 17 November which she attended with her sons Christian, Dale and Trent and Christian’s wife Sally. Dale had flown in from New Zealand for the presentation. The Star of Courage is awarded for acts of conspicuous courage in circumstances of great peril and is the second highest Australian bravery award. Ms O’Toole is clearly still grieving for the man who laid down his life for her in a botched armed robbery attempt at their High St jewellery store in July 2013. Mr O’Toole, 64, was stabbed by Gavin Perry, 27, after the parolee had attacked Ms O’Toole and thrown her into a glass cabinet before attempting to rob them. When her husband rushed into the store to defend her Perry turned on him and they struggled. Perry knocked him down and then aimed the killer blows with a 20cm carving knife. Her husband’s last words to her were to call an ambulance as he had been stabbed. Perry was jailed for 27 years for the murder and two armed robberies on

BRIDGET and Dermott O’Toole

businesses in Cranbourne. The Government House presentation touched her heart. “Of course, it was a really lovely day and turned out well,” she said. “We are really honoured that he’s to be remembered in this way, but I am not sure how I feel.” Ms O’Toole, who now lives at Lynbrook, described her husband as a “really brave man”. “We have been through four years and four months of hell since that day and nothing will ever make up for it.” The couple had been married 41 years. The sense of ceremony and grand occasion at the presentation touched her family’s hearts. The Star of Courage medal came in its own box with Mr O’Toole’s name engraved on the medal as well as a lapel star pin.

A large velvet folder in her seat pocket contained a certificate from the Governor-General Sir Peter Cosgrove signed under the authority of the Queen which commended Mr O’Toole’s “conspicuous courage by his actions” during the tragic event. Life will go on but the memories of the love she feels for her slain husband will go on forever. “There is no real sense of closure,” Ms O’Toole said. “I’m just very emotional as he should have been there to accept the award himself; it’s just sad that it had to be awarded posthumously. “Dermot would have been so humbled by all of this,” she said. “He was devoted to me and his family and would do anything for us. “He loved us and we loved him dearly. We miss him so much.”

Continued from Page 1 The study area includes all shorelines of Western Port and French Island, as well as the northern shorelines of Phillip Island from Newhaven to Seal Rocks. The modelling shows that properties are protected by steep foreshores between Flinders and Somers, although changes to the shoreline “could be more extensive change than previously experienced into the future”. However, “a significant number of non-rural properties” between Balnarring Beach and Hastings would be affected by the end of the century. Ms Zouzoulas said affected property owners could object to the overlay being applied to their land. “If council decides not to pursue the amendment there is significant risk [that] developers … will be required to make expensive and time consuming design changes to projects at later stages in the development process, including up to the building permit stage. “Council may also be left at risk for not taking appropriate action to limit the impact of an

identified potential hazard to property and human life.” When the report was first released in 2015, DELWP regional manager Rod Anderson said it brought together “the best historical knowledge of the Western Port coastline with detailed modelling and projected sea level rise data for the years 2040, 2070 and 2100” (“Risks rise with water levels” The News 9/6/15). “The modelling from the assessment will help land managers and owners in Western Port to make decisions about how to prepare and respond to climate risks along the coast.” Mr Anderson said the study’s results would “influence future planning decisions, emergency management frameworks, local infrastructure maintenance, and regional climate adaptation planning” by all levels of government. “It will also be used to continue conversations so that we can better understand community values and priorities in Western Port, and to identify opportunities for collaborative action on climate change.”

‘Stop waste going to By Hugh Fraser* WASTE was offensive and stuck in the ground to be forgotten until typhoid and cholera reared their ugly heads. It still is. In medieval times it dropped down from a hole in a plank in a room in the castle walls into another hole in the ground or at the bottom of the domestic garden. Fast forward 800 years to the 21st century – we still do so – into the septic euphemistically called “settling tank” to contaminate the ground water we love to pump up and use on our golf courses and gardens. As to household food (putrescible) waste, it too goes into a hole in the ground at the Rye landfill owned by Mornington Peninsula Shire. It’s time to stop all this nonsense: there are alternatives. The Nepean Peninsula has 246 kilometres of mains sewerage, which have been rolled out since 2013 to collect 7.2 million litres of sewerage from 16,000 properties. All at a cost of $357 million. This is “hubbed”, or collectivized, in economies of scale and processed off the peninsula to Class A water and returned safely to our environment. To be responsible for our own waste is to abandon our putrid septics and connect up to our cutting edge technology mains sewerage and - stop the drop into the ground. And stop the drop of our putrescible waste into our Rye landfill too. It generates 48 per cent of this shire’s greenhouse gas emissions. The shire is committed to address climate change and become carbon neutral

by 2021. The state government taxes this council $2.8m a year to use our own landfill and it costs ratepayers big money to maintain and continue to expand it. There is a better biogas way. Yarra Valley Water takes all the RACV city food waste to generate enough biogas to fire up generation of all the power it needs to run its sewerage farm and pump power into the grid – diverting 33,000 tonnes a year of food waste from landfill. But this shire sends the equivalent amount to its Rye landfill. In China, Europe and the United States household waste is burnt in waste-to-energy (W2E) plants. I have seen plants that can process 250,0001.5 million tonnes a year – half of the

three million tones a year Melbourne and its metropolitan region sends to landfill. The technology is just waiting for enough innovative councils with enough waste feedstock to “hub” or collectivise it, create economies of scale, collectivise their many individual kerbside waste collection contacts to contracts with a common duration, to persuade the state government to unlock its $400m plus “treasure chest” landfill levy fund, to go to the market and get on with the application of this proven W2E technology. To be responsible for our household waste is to responsibly abandon our landfills in favour of W2E facilities and stop the drop into the ground.

ground’ Union sees ‘disgrace’ in shire’s lease deal Stephen Taylor steve@mpnews.com.au

Waste not wanted: Mornington Peninsula Shire councillors Antonella Celi, Rosie Clark (left) with acting climate change community engagement officer Michelle McCready, Cr Hugh Fraser and the mayor Cr Bev Colomb at the October War on Waste Forum and Expo. Picture: Supplied

* Nepean ward councillor Hugh Fraser recently visited China as part of a study tour of W2E facilities with Mornington Peninsula Shire’s chief operating officer Niall McDonnagh and team leader waste Daniel Hinson, councillors and officers from the City of Greater Dandenong and the Metropolitan Waste Resource Recovery Group. Cr Fraser is the council’s delegate to the Metropolitan Waste Forum. This is an edited version of a talk he gave to a community waste forum held by the shire in October at Dromana.

THE decision to lease out the running of Mornington Peninsula Shire’s aquatic and leisure centres to Belgravia Leisure has been blasted as “disgraceful” by a union official in a letter sent to all shire councillors. The official, organiser Ty Lockwood, represents staff involved in the transition which took place on 1 November. The lease arrangement affects staff at Pelican Park Recreation Centre, Crib Point pool, Somerville Health & Fitness Studio, Civic Reserve Recreation Centre in Mornington, and Westernport Gymnastics at Hastings Community Hub. The shire’s best practice facilitator Vicki Bishop notified Mr Lockwood beforehand that all leisure centre staff, including casual staff, would transfer to Belgravia Leisure. She said they would “retain their existing employment terms and conditions as well as recognition of prior years of service with the shire. There will be no substantive changes to roles or rostered hours”. Affected staff members were notified of their redeployment in September. The shire’s chief financial officer Matthew Green said staff at the leisure centres “continue their employment with Belgravia Leisure”. “They retain their existing employment terms and conditions for the life of [their] contract,” he said. “It is the employee’s choice regarding superannuation: they can remain with their current fund, transfer to the Belgravia default fund or choose any other fund they prefer.” Mr Lockwood is acting for a shire staff member who does not want a job with Belgravia Leisure, not least

EVERYTHING

because her new contract reportedly offers a three-year term rather than the ongoing employment enjoyed by most shire staff. “This in our view again breaches the transfer of business clause of the 2014 MP Shire Enterprise Agreement as [she] had permanent ongoing employment with the shire: now her employment ceases on 28 October 2020,” Mr Lockwood said. “Why and how was this decision made? Who made this decision: MP Shire or Belgravia Leisure?” Mr Lockwood said he had “further concerns that other shire leisure employees may also have the same issue”. “This is our second attempt to try and get this redeployment process sorted,” he told Ms Bishop in an email. “MP Shire has, in our view, breached the 2014 Enterprise Agreement again. “Perhaps a proper review needs to be conducted to ensure there aren’t further breaches …” Mr Lockwood wanted to know if councillors were aware that Belgravia Leisure has an Enterprise Agreement that “has not been renewed since 2003? Do the councillors think that this is ok? “Are the councillors happy that their decision to outsource Leisure has screwed over good, honest hard working residents and everyday people? “Would the ratepayers of Mornington Peninsula Shire be happy with their rates reportedly paying CEO Carl Cowie somewhere in the order of $400,000 a year with very lucrative conditions?” The shire will pay Belgravia $5.72 million over five years in management fees. The Bayswater-based company will also run the shire’s All Access outreach programs for older adults in Mornington, Rosebud, Hastings, Somers, Blairgowrie and Somerville. In September the deal was hailed as “a win-winwin” by then-mayor Cr Bev Colomb.

Plea for respect and mateship EXAMS are over and six years of secondary college are completed, so now it’s time to unwind. Mornington Peninsula Shire is preparing to welcome scores of young people during Schoolies Week when they will relax on the beach, take in the sights and spend time with friends before moving on to the next chapter in their lives. To assist, the state-wide response Good Times, Great Breaks (GTGB) aims to ensure the young people celebrate respectfully and safely with minimal impact on the community. It will operate in the coastal shires of Mornington Peninsula, Surf Coast and Bass Coast and has the support of Red Frogs volunteers, DanceWize – Harm Minimisation Victoria drug and alcohol workers, and Victoria Police. All GTGB officials will be wearing ID with the GTGB logo clearly shown. They will be out and about 9pm-3am, Friday 24 November to Saturday 2 December. Life Saving Victoria volunteers will patrol Sorrento back beach 10am- 6pm, Monday 27 November to Friday 1 December.

THERE was more shooting the breeze than shooting the curl when thousands of surfers descended on the Mornington Peninsula’s most popular surfing beach, Point Leo. Organisers estimate there were more than 2000 visitors to the Sunday 12 November Surf Vintage Day organised by the Disabled Surfers Association Mornington Peninsula. “More than $7000 was raised for the DSAMP, which will ensure the continuation of the popular surf days for people with disabilities held at Point Leo each summer,” organiser Rod Jones said. “My personal highlight was seeing such a large gathering of the tight knit peninsula surf crew and hearing the stories being told. The waves get bigger every year.” The vintage day included more than 30 displays of surfboards, books, magazines and records from surfboard and surf memorabilia collectors. One display included a “family tree” of Mornington Peninsula surfboard shapers. Large collections of locally made surfboards from Trigger Brothers, Oke, Classic Malibu (Noosa), Mick Pierce, Shady Hollow, DMS, Bass and Chris Cornell were on show, along with handcrafted wooden boards from Joe Cervi and Tree to Sea. Rip Curl and Surfworld historian Bob Smith brought along the famous Bells competition trophy and other

surfing memorabilia. There were also more than 25 vintage kombis and classic cars in the line-up. The vintage day also served as a venue for reunions of the legendary East Coast Boardriders and Suicide Savages board clubs. Also on hand was George Rice, who made his first surfboard in his parents’ garage in Highett in 1958. The hollow timber board was soon followed by three more for his friends and, with a few years, boards shaped from balsa wood. Rice opened his first shop in High St, Preston during the summer of 1963-64. “He became the standout leader for the new wave of surfboard manufacturers in Victoria and by the time he moved into a bigger factory in Northcote during 1969 he was peaking at 80 stringerless surfboards a week in the Christmas holiday rush,” says Paul Trigger who, with brother Phil, Phil Grace, Mick Pierce, John Jolly and Darren Hack made about 40 “replica logs” in the early 2000s. “Some of those who owe their kick start to George include Fred Pyke, Pat Morgan, [Rip Curl cofounder] Doug Warbrick, Ken Bates, Paul Pascoe, Phil Grace, MIck Pierce and Colin Bell. “In 1972 George set up his final store in Bonbeach but decided to retire closing the shop in 1975 for an easier lifestyle and more time for fishing and golf.”

Call for time limit on party house laws Stephen Taylor steve@mpnews.com.au SHORT-TERM rental provider Stayz wants proposed local laws regulating “party houses” on the Mornington Peninsula to be rescinded once the state government introduces blanket controls. Under the shire’s proposed laws, which it says are the first of their kind in the state, a registration system will be introduced for owners of short stay rental accommodation. Property owners will be required to nominate an appointed agent who must respond to neighbours’ complaints within two hours. A code of conduct will govern the number of occupants and establish expectations for their behaviour, as well as setting rules on car parking and rubbish disposal. The aim of the proposed law is to address the impacts of anti-social behaviour by occupants of short stay rental accommodation properties across the peninsula. But Stayz wants the proposed local laws to be dropped when the state government’s sweeping state-wide regulations come into force, possibly early next year. The company’s government relations chief Eacham Curry said Mornington Peninsula Shire had “made some good first attempts at running a consultative process that seems to be a genuine step forward to improve the industry”. “However, Stayz continues to have concerns about some parts of the proposed local law,” he said. “There is no guarantee from council that this is a temporary measure that will be rescinded once the state government moves ahead with its regulatory solution for the entire state.”

Stayz suggested a state-wide regulatory process would be “more efficient and easier to enforce” in its original submission to the council in September. “If different levels of government were to have conflicting regulations, it would damage the sector and be hard to enforce,” Mr Curry said. The shire’s environment protection manager John Rankine said the proposed local law would be “subordinate” to state government legislation. “If the state government passes legislation on this matter then the parts of the local law that are different become inoperative,” he said. “The shire supports an effective solution for the whole of the state to ensure consistency.” Stayz is pushing for a three-strike rule for homeowners. “We are concerned about the single-strike policy and think it should be removed,” Mr Curry said. “The additional restrictions on car parking and use of outdoor spaces infringe on the property rights of homeowners and should be re-drafted to focus on directly addressing amenity concerns. “There is little information about the proposed fee or process for registering a property for use on a short-term rental platform. “Onerous costs or processes will discourage people from listing their homes and drive up the cost of holiday accommodation. “Registration should be approved for all applications meeting the criteria. We are concerned about the level of discretion available when accessing applications.” The shire’s Short Stay Rental Accommodation Local Law (Draft) is on display until 5pm, Friday 7 December, at mornpen.vic.gov.au/haveyoursay

Jewellers

WE WILL BEAT ANY PRICE

A true jewel of the Nile

However, even during those years, the idea of not making jewellery was not an option for Sam who bought some equipment and made his creations at home. “I never stopped making jewellery but after two years, I got my first job in a jewellery business in the late 70s,” said Sam, who always maintained his eye on the dream of one day having his own shop like his dad in Cairo. “I worked for different organisations and did contracting work and then one day I started up working in the main street Wednesday market in Mornington. I set myself up there and got a great response. I sat in the street and started to sell and trade the gold and people began to entrust me with their jewellery to have redesigned or made into something from scratch. One person even handed over $50,000 of gold to have made into a custom designed piece. Since then, it really took off. And one day a friend told me about this shop in Tyabb that would be perfect for me to set up. That was 20 years ago and I have been at the Craft Village ever since.” And so the final stage of Sam’s dream had come to fruition. He was still able to create his stunning jewellery designs and be part of momentous occasions in his customer’s lives. He had his own shop, Jewel of the Nile, continuing on the family tradition from the other side of the world. And he has been able to uphold a craft that is no longer taught. “I do custom made jewellery all the time and design the pieces. We do manufacturing of the pieces, design and remodelling, all repairs, antique repairs and have a wonderful selection of jewellery in my showroom, including pieces from my sisters and brothers who are jewellers still back in Cairo.” Jewel of the Nile is at 14 Mornington-Tyabb Road, Tyabb (in Craft Village). Phone 5977 3711.

WHEN you grow up in a family of jewellers, surrounded by precious gems, blocks of gold and creativity, it’s a fairly safe bet that the craft might be in the blood. This is absolutely the case for Egyptian born Samir Soleman, a jeweller in the true sense of the word and owner of the aptly named Jewel of the Nile in Tyabb. As an artisan and one of the few real handcrafting jewellers, Samir (or Sam as he prefers to be called), still creates all of his jewellery by hand just the way he learnt as an 11 year old working in his father’s jewellery business in Cairo 50 years ago. “I wanted to make jewellery with my dad rather than go to school and I spent many hours just sitting there and working, learning the trade and doing everything by hand,” said Sam as he reminisces from his showroom in Tyabb, surrounded by the wonderful pieces of handcrafted jewellery he has on display. “We were living in Cairo and it was my dad’s business called Jewel of the Nile. My grandfather was also a jeweller, along with my uncle, cousins, nieces and sisters.” How this talented artisan ended up 14,000 kilometres away from his homeland and on the Mornington Peninsula is a wonderful journey and the people of the peninsula have embraced the talents of Sam over the past 30 years with thousands of regular clients entrusting their precious jewels and gold to him. “I came to Australia as I thought it was a good opportunity for a better life. I was 21 when came out here and was looking for something new,” said Sam, who found a home in Melbourne in 1977. “I could not work as a jeweller immediately as I did not speak English. So I went to work in a factory for GMH and studied English part time for two years.”

NEWS DESK Police patrol

With Stephen Taylor

Senior Constable Lamsis or Detective Sergeant Ben Reidy, of Mornington Peninsula CIU, 5978 1401, or Crime Stoppers 1800 333 000. Detectives have also impounded a darkcoloured BMW which may have links to the man and to the attempted Bittern robbery and ramming of police cars at Carrum Downs.

Arrest after tussle

Dusted: Detectives dusted the stolen Nissan Navara for fingerprints and seized items of interest. Picture: Gary Sissons

Plea for witnesses to car chase POLICE are appealing for witnesses and dashcam footage of a pursuit involving a stolen Nissan Navara which ended in drama at Benton Square shopping centre, Monday 13 November. The police Air Wing helped track the 36-yearold driver, of Cranbourne, to the shopping centre in Dunns Rd, Mornington where he allegedly ran through the car park and attempted to hide behind a liquor store until cornered by a police dog which bit him on the upper arm, 1.30pm. The man was taken to Frankston Hospital where police expected to interview him on

Thursday in regard to multiple offences, including aggravated burglaries, theft from motor vehicle, assaults/firearm offences and ramming police vehicles. The pursuit began at 12.30pm on Graydens Rd near Stumpy Gully Rd, Tuerong. Mornington police identified the car, stolen from Hastings, as that alleged to have rammed two police cars in the car park of a fast food outlet in Carrum Downs, 12.40am, Friday 10 November. It was also possibly involved in an aggravated burglary at a property in Bittern, 3.30am, Saturday 11 November, in which a resident was threatened with a firearm. During the chase the Navara was involved in two minor collisions on its way to Benton Square Shopping Centre, one as it travelled east on Bungower Rd. After the man’s arrest the car was dusted for fingerprints and impounded. Anyone with information is urged to call

A ROSEBUD man allegedly scuffled and spat at protective services officers while being arrested for allegedly attempting to kick in the doors of a Frankston medical centre, 8.15pm, Thursday 9 November. Frankston Senior Sergeant Phil Hulley said the PSOs approached the man in Young St and, when he became aggressive and resisted arrest, he was taken to ground. The man then allegedly kicked out at police who arrived to assist the PSOs. He was sprayed with foam while being bundled into the divisional van. The 23-year-old was charged with being drunk and disorderly in a public place and assaulting PSOs.

He will face Frankston Magistrates’ Court at a later date.

Charges over arm loss

A MAN has been charged with dangerous driving/ negligent driving causing serious injury after a tow truck driver was struck and seriously injured on Peninsula Link, 3.30pm, Tuesday 14 November. The 39-year-old Frankston North man allegedly careered into the emergency lane as the towie was assisting a broken down car. The 30-year-old Hampton Park man’s arm was severed above the elbow and flung 70 metres along the freeway. The wayward Commodore became airborne and flipped onto its roof. Surgeons at The Alfred hospital fought hard to reattach the man’s arm late last week. It is not known if they were successful.

Meeting tackles public transport “INADEQUATE” public transport service levels on the Mornington Peninsula and in Frankston formed the basis of a meeting attended by the former mayor Cr Bev Colomb and Frankston MP Paul Edbrooke last week. Also attending were Frankston mayor Cr Brian Cunial, shire team leader traffic and transport Edward Pocock and sustainable transport project coordinator Rita Kontos. Cr Colomb said the MP “agreed to discuss the shire’s request to fund a complete Frankston and Mornington Peninsula public transport service review with his contacts”. She said the shire was “working closely with its community to advocate to the state govern-

ment to provide … a decent public transport network”. Cr Colomb said the shire was “determined to see a higher level of public transport on the peninsula”. “We discussed how lack of transport effects many aspects of life in the region, such as economic growth, access to healthcare, access to employment and education, access to our tourism facilities and the level of youth unemployment,” she said. “[Poor public transport] makes it difficult for those wanting a career in the hospitality or tourism industry.”

Cover up to avoid flesh-eating ulcer I attended a very informative group session at my medical centre, run by a local doctor on the Buruli ulcer, more commonly known as the Bairnsdale ulcer (“School’s in for GPs in search for ulcer cure” The News 10/10/17) . What I learnt really shocked me, especially the rapid increase of reported cases in this area since the start of this year. There were some very graphic photos to show the various forms this flesh-eating ulcer takes (thankfully I had only had a light lunch) and a folder given to each of us with relevant information on the subject. There were a few people attending who were being treated for this condition and, as one gentleman said, he wouldn’t wish it on his worst enemy. Age is no barrier and there was also a young boy who is undergoing treatment. My purpose in writing this letter is to make people aware that the Mornington Peninsula is a highly susceptible area, with Rye being a hot spot. It is not absolutely certain how you get this infection, but it could be linked to mosquitoes, sandy soil, which could release the bacteria after heavy rain, possum faeces and possibly some other causes. Obviously a lot more research is required so I hope our local MP reads this. One important thing that struck me is the incubation period, which can be one to nine months, so you may be down here on holidays and then a few months later find you have a sore that doesn’t heal. The medical profession on the peninsula is very aware and acts quickly, but this may not be the case elsewhere. Keep the insect repellent, a good one, in use and cover up outside. Keep an eye on open cuts and wounds and keep them covered. Forewarned is forearmed. Virginia Leacy, Rye

Mt Eliza under threat With our Green Wedge under attack again, it is evident that our federal members of parliament such as Dunkley MP Chris Crewther and Flinders MP Greg Hunt are removed form these important issues, so it is very much up to local community action groups and appropriate elected councillors, namely Bev Colomb, Rosie Clarke and Sam Hearn, to show some responsibility in their Briars ward. Sadly, I don’t believe local activists have seen support or positive planning from these three. Where are the now supposedly trained-up Briars councillors showing leadership and opposition to development threats to Kunyung Rd, Mt Eliza residents from three directions, namely the possible selling off of the South East Water decommissioned dam for mini McMansions; the clearly out-of-neighbourhood-character proposed retirement settlement development on the Moondah (Melbourne Business School) property; and the proposed selling of the R M Ansett estate.

There are four approachable Mt Eliza-based self-funded community action groups, and some that are spending members’ funds to oppose these three issues that will have enormous impact upon the whole length of the Kunyung Rd area. Families will have their views, road access and quiet neighbourhood interfered with by property developments, road alignments, vegetation removal and infrastructure overuse. Kunyung Primary School will be significantly impacted. The influx of visitors, employees, trades people and need for road widening are some of the anticipated side effects if all three sales go ahead. As Mornington Peninsula Shire has yet to show any strong support or action, the local groups to contact either by email or phone call are The Kunyung Road Action Group, The South Eastern Centre of Sustainability, The Mornington Peninsula Ratepayers’ & Residents’ Association and the Mt Eliza Association For Environment Care. Contact details are best found by using an internet search engine or the Mornington Peninsula Community Information Directory. Ian Morrison, convenor Mt Eliza Community Alliance and fellow of the Australian Society of Association Executives

Squatters have rights [Defence Industry Minister] Christopher Pyne has accused refugees on Manus Island of “effectively squatting”. These men, who are fleeing persecution in their own countries, have the choice of settling in their current community where they are in danger and certainly not welcome or being “repatriated” to impossible situations in their country of origin. Have we forgotten our own backgrounds? Most of our ancestors did not come to Australia for a holiday, they came to survive, and what an asset they have been in developing our country. For right or wrong, Australia seems to have stopped the boats and presumably can continue doing so. Six hundred people is a very tiny number of human beings to absorb into our huge country - and we can only dream of the contribution they are likely to make. The federal government must stop being so inflexible – it has made its point - and allow these suffering people to settle in Australia. Effectively squatting? It seems to me that many in the government are ineffectively squatting. Mel Farnbach, Balnarring

Business ‘tourism’ rate Further to the recent letters about on tourism on the Mornington Peninsula, I personally do not disagree that an increase in tourism with the resultant spin-off of increased revenue is beneficial. However, I concur with some of the disadvantages raised about the impact on local residents.

The irony is that although business proprietors are the major beneficiaries of the increased number of shoppers, the council rates they pay on their business premises are the same rate in the dollar that residential property owners pay. Perhaps the application of a rate surcharge on business premises, with a corresponding overall decrease in the rate residential owners pay, would help even the playing field. Barry Robinson, McCrae

Drone defence Drones will be the focus of a state government push to protect marine life in Port Phillip (“Drones focus of marine safety push” The News 7/11/17). While those that know me understand my passion for protecting all native animals, marine a terrestrial, I find the comments in this article quite absurd. Yes, drones can be, when close, relatively noisy (currently being addressed), but nowhere near the level of an outboard motor or a jet ski. A boat or jet ski must keep a distance of 100 metres from any seal, dolphin or whale. And rightly so, but a drone must keep 500m distance, where is the logic? Drones are used by amateur and professional photographers who are aware of all these rules and, in the main, are very environmentally conscious. Yes, drones need to be regulated, but there must be fair and equitable Laws. Andrew Raff, Fingal

Footpaths needed Why doesn’t Mornington Peninsula Shire built footpaths on at least one side of the road of so many streets in inner Mornington at no cost to residents? It is so dangerous with pedestrians, children on bikes, mobility scooters and seniors with shopping trolleys on the road walking to the shops. Councillors happily spend our money on junket trips. Is there any accountability? Virginia Green, Mornington

Protection for horses With the attention of Australia firmly fixed on the race track after Regal Monarch had to be euthanised after falling at Flemington, taking the horse death toll to almost 150 since July 2016, the actions of one jockey, symbolic of the entire industry, shocked the nation. Dylan Caboche dismounted his horse She’s Reneldasgirl and punched her in the ribs. Unluckily for him, he was caught on camera. Mr Caboche was handed a paltry two-week suspension from racing. I think he should be banned from racing for life. In Mr Caboche’s public statement, he apologised to the owners, his fellow jockeys, the racing body and the wider community in general. But what about the poor horse? This is an industry in which the welfare of animals always comes second to their profitability. Whipping, and in this case punching, are just the most visible forms of abuse to which horses are subjected. Many also suffer from stomach ulcers, blood in their lungs and bone fractures, which are masked by medication but never allowed time enough to heal. Horses in the industry are already exposed to many dangers. Jockeys who can’t control their anger shouldn’t be one of them.

Laura Weyman-Jones, People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA)

Public transport The wheels on the bus go round and round. Few and far between no doubt you’ve found. The people on the bus jump up and down. Though silence and inaction from government town. Successive state governments have ignored community campaigns for much needed public transport improvements on the Mornington Peninsula. This must change. We have the second worst average public transport service per resident in the greater Melbourne region. We also have high youth unemployment and the highest ageing population in Victoria. Both groups need public transport. Many local businesses and industries require applicants and existing staff to have their own private vehicles due to the lack of public transport. An unfortunate but currently required discriminatory practice. It’s time that all recommendations from the last community consultative Bus Services Review (2007) were implemented. Jane Clarke, Rosebud

Beware asbestos Aussies are besotted with renovating. But what happens when we ignore the risks and don’t take the warnings about asbestos seriously? We could be risking our lives and the lives of our loved ones if deadly asbestos fibres are inhaled. Asbestos-related diseases are not a thing of the past. Every 14 hours, one Australian loses their life to mesothelioma. Every 13 hours another 13 families receive the tragic news that a loved one has the disease that will take their life, usually within months. With one in every three homes containing asbestos in some form or another, homeowners and tradies could be risking their lives and the lives of families (even their kids) if they don’t take the warnings seriously. Asbestos could be lurking in any home built or renovated before 1987 including brick, weatherboard, clad and fibro homes. Asbestos was used in the manufacture of hundreds of products and if these products are disturbed during renovations, that’s when fibres can be inhaled and can kill. Today, asbestos remains one of the greatest health threats to families and tradespeople who disturb asbestos during renovations and maintenance. We must stop the ongoing tragic loss of Australian lives. Every Australian needs to know that when it comes to asbestos. Visit asbestosawareness.com.au to learn what you need to know. John Jarratt, ambassador, Asbestos Awareness Month Campaign

100 YEARS AGO THIS WEEK...

Tyabb soldier returns home wounded Compiled by Brodie Cowburn AMONGST the names in the last list of returning wounded soldiers we are pleased to see that of Private A. E. Hollier, of Tyabb. *** WE regret to have to record the death of Pte. A. J. Dent, at the front. Word was received by the mother of deceased a few days ago of the sad event, and general sympathy is expressed for the bereaved friends. Mr H. Purdy has also been notified that his son has been wounded in the face, though the extent of the injury is not stated. Both lads were well known in Frankston and generally liked. *** A MEETING of the supporters of the reinforcements referendum will be held in the Mechanics’ Institute, Frankston, on Tuesday evening next, for the purpose of forming a committee in furtherance of the successful carrying out of the referendum. As the time is very limited prior to the referendum being taken, it is necessary, if anything useful is to be done, to commence at once. *** THE Somerville branch of the Red Cross Society assisted by the residents of the district are entertaining the returned wounded soldiers on Saturday Dec 1st. The Langwarrin band will play selections during the day, and all are invited to come and give the boys a cheer. *** ON Friday last flags were flying at half mast when it became known

that Pte D. Henderson was reported killed in action. *** DEATH NOTICE ON the 16th October, in France, Private Alfred James Dent, the beloved and only son of Mrs Dent, of Frankston and loving brother of Mrs Alf C Hill, and Mrs F Scarborough, and Annie. We pictured your safe returning, Alf. We longed to clasp your hand but God has postponed our meeting. It will be in a better land. He died a hero - One of the best. *** A GENERAL meeting of the Somerville Fruitgrowers’ Association will be held on Monday next Nov 26th 8pm. in the Mechanics’ Hall. Business—Election of office bearers for Cool Stores, and other. All interested are invited. Important. *** MESSRS Brody and Mason will hold an extensive clearing sale of the whole of the furnishings of a 14 roomed residence, on account of Mrs A. S. Panter (who has sold her property), on Wednesday next, at their mart, Bay street. *** A VERY pretty wedding took place on the 7th November, at the Mornington Junction Presbyterian Church. The bridegroom was Walter Ernest John Scott, late of the 39th Battalion in the A.I.F. only living, son of the late Henry Charles Scott and Mrs J. A. Hurndell, Mornington Junction. The bride, Violet Edith Wilson, second eldest daughter of the late

Major Conder, Officer Commanding Langwarrin Camp, made a capital chairman. Several of the Langwarrin boys assisted in the programme which was thoroughly enjoyed by all present. Supper was catered for by the Ladies, after which those who danced were well catered for until 12.30. *** RESIDENTS of Frankston and district will be sorry to learn that “The Hermit”’ has been removed to the Melbourne Hospital. On Sunday last, Dr Maxwell, hearing that the old-man was ill, visited the camp and found him suffering from heart trouble. John Maddox, who was formerly a sea captain, has lived a life practically cut off from the outside world, in a secluded spot, about two miles from Frankston, for the past twelve years. His unique and picturesque abode has been admired by hundreds of visitors to Frankston from whom he refuses to accept money, preferring to work for his food. Since the above was in type we learn that “The Hermit” died at the Homoepathic Hospital on Friday morning last. The body will be brought to Frankston today and buried in Frankston cemetery on Sunday afternoon. *** A DISTURBANCE took place at Frankston on Saturday evening last, when a crowd of weekend visitors arrived by the train. They proceeded to stroll down the

Charles Wilson of Moorooduc and Mrs James Male of Mornington Junction. The ceremony was performed by the Rev G. Carson of Balaclava, late of Mornington. The bride was charmingly dressed in cream crepe de Chine, with the usual veil and orange blossom arranged in a cap effect, and she carried a bouquet of roses, carnations and maidenhair fern. She was given away by her stepfather and was attended by two little bridesmaids (step sisters of the bride) dressed in embroided voil, and carried pink bouquets with pink streamers. *** THE annual meeting of the Western Port Parochial Council was held in Holy Trinity School Room, on Saturday last, November 17th. Captain Chaplain Croker of Caulfield Hospital, gave a very interesting account of the work the church league of soldiers’ friends is doing for the men in khaki. His Grace the Archbishop also spoke of the good work being done. At 12.30 the delegates adjourned for lunch which had been provided by the ladies of Holy Trinity and was all that could be desired. *** AN evening was held in the Seaford Hall on Wednesday, 21st September to “Welcome Home” two of the local boys, Privates W. Martin and A Mathewson, who have been returned to us wounded. The hall was packed and many were unable to get a seat.

main street in a disorderly fashion, laughing and calling out boisterously, when Constable Ryan remonstrated with them. On them not taking any notice, the constable decided to arrest one of the worst behaved, and while on the way to the lockup, several of his companions attempted to effect a rescue. The policeman warned them to desist, but one of them followed to the police station, and as he would not go away when requested, Ryan went to arrest him also. In the ensuing struggle the first offender, it is alleged, viciously attacked the constable, who was kicked, struck about the face and body, and knocked violently against the fence. He retaliated, however, fought with his prisoner, and finally handcuffed the other man, and lodged them both in the cells. *** ON Saturday night a novelty night was run by the Social Club and proved very successful, a great number of costumes being worn. The prize winners were, ladies: Miss E. Unthank; gents: Mr Twyford. A number of visitors from Mornington were present and all enjoyed the evening. *** THIS week a large number of local residents are on the Island after mutton bird eggs. A good trip should result. *** From the pages of the Mornington Standard, 24 November 1917

THE MEANING OF EXISTENCE... AND OTHER SHORT STORIES

The Russians Have Invaded My Toaster By Stuart McCullough IT happens rarely. Having to buy a new toaster is something you only do because the old one has somehow come to grief. No one decides they need a flashier appliance in which to make their breakfast. Toasters are the ultimate quiet achiever. For days, weeks and then years on end, they spit out high-quality produce until one day, without warning, they don’t. Our toaster had served us well. Perhaps weakened by a lifetime of multigrain, the lever broke. Let me say right up front that I regard this as so much more than just a run of the mill mechanical failure. It’s betrayal, pure and simple. Appliances ought to live forever. In fact, I’m sure they used to. I’m certain that the video recorder once used by my great great great great grandparents back on the farm in Ireland still works an absolute treat and it’s only because you can’t buy a three hour VHS cassette to save yourself in this day and age that I no longer use it. Appliances, by rights, should be immortal. I don’t want to have to buy a toaster every few years because the one I bought can’t hack it in the real world. It’s often said that breakfast is the most important meal of the day. I, personally, think it goes much, much further than that. Breakfast is the bedrock of humanity. Do you think there’d be a United Nations if breakfast didn’t exist? Not a chance. Einstein would never had developed the Theory of Relativity without a bowl of Wheetbix. Odds are, he’d still stumbling around in his pyjamas

and scratching himself, were it not for breakfast. No breakfast means no music and no art. There just wouldn’t be a sufficient cause to get out of bed. Without it, we’re all lost. It was obvious that we needed a new toaster. And quickly. But because buying a toaster is something you only ever do as a matter of necessity, there’s always some major advance in toaster technology to wrap your head

around. Last time, it was ‘crumpet control’. It sounded almost Orwellian. I’ll admit that, despite some initial skepticism, I’ve grown to love ‘crumpet control’. It got to the point that, if offered crumpets, I would demand to know if ‘crumpet control’ had been used, and refuse to eat the results if the answer was anything other than affirmative. So it was that a pointless extravagance became indispensible.

It’s as though they were determined to take all the skill out of making toast. Frankly, it’s the kids I feel sorry for – if confronted with a regular, run of the mill toaster, some of them wouldn’t know where to start. At first it was glorious. But then, something went wrong. Lights started to flash. A beeping sound that suggested attack was imminent began emanating from the bottom. Worst still, the steel claws that held the bread in place as it tanned itself delicately to become toast, refused to release their grip. In effect, my breakfast was hostage to an appliance. It was, without doubt, an unmitigated disaster. It made no sense. In this day and age, there’s no way something so fancy could be defective on day one. There’s only one plausible explanation – Russian hackers. Clearly, the KGB has hacked its way into my toaster and set loose some kind of virus or malware or, I don’t know, the ghost of Ivan Drago from Rocky IV. It’s typical of Putin. First the Ukraine. Now my toaster. There’s nothing else to do other than to go completely off the grid and make my breakfast under the veil of secrecy by starting a small fire in the backyard and using a coat hanger to warm the bread. Then again, I might be overacting. I tend to do that when I’m hungry. I should compose myself – perhaps a short song or half an album – before boiling the kettle and having something to eat. Crumpets would be ideal. stuart@stuartmccullough.com

I arrived home from work to find the old toaster gone – presumably to the Big Breakfast in the sky – and a new, shiny toaster in its place. The first thing I noticed was that there was no lever to press to make the bread go down. It was a ‘button only’ affair. Making toast is an art that has now entered the twenty-first century. While some might think it was about time, for me it seemed like too much, too fast. I simply wasn’t ready for my breakfast to enter the digital age. For me, toast is a reminder of a simpler time. Despite my reluctance, I was curious. What could my new-age supertoaster do that the old one couldn’t? After syncing my emails to the crumb tray and hooking it up to the wi-fi so that I can get my breakfast started while still in bed simply by sending an email, I was dazzled by the bank of glowing buttons. Not only did it have a ‘crumpet control’ function, it also had a ‘fruit bread’ button. This, presumably, is to once and for all put an end to the phenomenon we’ve all suffered at some point whereby you set fire to your fruit bread because you forgot to lower the setting. It was always such an exciting moment. Another step forward, another tradition gone. It also had a button labeled ‘a little bit more’. The idea being that if your toast is not quite to your liking, you can send it back for a little more time without the risk of it becoming horribly burnt, its identity only ascertainably by way of its dental records. Wonders would never cease.

The Kangas crush Magpies PROVINCIAL

By IT Gully LANGWARRIN sits at the top of the MPCA Provincial ladder after crushing Crib Point by nine wickets on Saturday. A half century to Taylor Smith and centuries to Andy Johnson and Matt Prosser saw the Kangaroos reach 1/284, in reply to Crib Point’s total of 162. Prosser played a typically patient innings opening the batting, hitting five

boundaries in his 101, while Johnson was the aggressor, hitting nine fours and three sixes in a dominant display. Baxter’s woes continued on Saturday, humiliated by old foe Peninsula Old Boys. Chasing 212 for victory and resuming at 1/4 with Daniel Warwick already in the sheds, Baxter never recovered, rolled for just 101. It’s hard to remember the last time that Baxter has performed so badly for a prolonged period of time. Justin Bridgeman top scored for

the visitors with 27, while Joe Rule opened with 23. Chris Brittain was out for three and Dale Irving for 13. Since opening the season with a ton, Brittain just hasn’t been able to find his mojo. Irving has struggled with the bat all season, as has Warwick. No such problems for the Old Boys, who sit equal top. Tom Shayler was sharp with the ball, snaring 4/23 from 11 overs, while Eivion Bowen took 2/11 and Jon Forrest 2/10.

Baxter was rolled in just the 46th over. Pearcedale smashed Sorrento, as expected. Sorrento made just 98 in its first innings and Pearcedale kicked off day two of the clash at 1/60. Chris Dew went on to make 76 and Will Kennedy 81, while Jarryd Herbert picked up 36 and Kaine Smith 35. The Dales batted for 94 overs and finished on 6/283, a smashing victory. Mt Eliza also made light work of Mornington, eventually.

Resuming at 2/50 and chasing 144 for victory, there were some anxious moments for the Mounties before Lyle House (36) ensured his team claimed victory. At one stage Mt Eliza was 6/132 after losing 3/8, including Justin Grant (27) and Keith Biggs (67). However, House saw his side get the result before Nick Baron (71) and Rob Maskiell (44no) had some party time at the end to help their side to 289, a 150-run victory.

Sharks win a thriller PENINSULA

By IT Gully GUN Flinders batsman Tom Clements single-handedly won his team the match against Delacombe Park on Saturday after scoring a monster century. With his side in some early trouble at 2/5, chasing the Parkers 237, Clements took control of the situation, faced 224 balls, banged eight fours and six sixes and finished unbeaten in the 80th over on 151. While teammates continued to fall around him, Clements took it upon himself to win his team the match. Skipper Neil Barfuss hung around for 29 balls and made 29 and Brennan Gillies hit 22. Other than Will Tuck with 11, not one other Flinders player made it into double figures. The Sharks got over the line in the dying balls of the game, winning by just one run, 238 to 237. Pines claimed a stirring victory over Red Hill, winning by 15 runs. Red Hill resumed on day two on their home deck at 1/13, chasing Pines modest total of 166. Andrew Mock (60) and Riley Shaw (20) resumed at the crease and added

26 runs to the overnight total before the wheels began to fall off. Simon Dart was bowled by Harley Parker for one and when Brent Martin was out a short time later, the Hillmen were up against it. At 5/52, Pines’ bowlers were up to the task and eventually bowled out the opposition for 151. Alex Coad was again the pick of the bowlers for Pines with 5/47 off 20.3 overs, while Nick Wilcox bowled 28 overs and finished with 2/66. Long Island wasn’t able to reach the lofty heights of Main Ridge, falling 42 runs short of the total. Chasing 261 for victory, the Islanders were bowled out for 218. Daniel Heyne top scored for the Islanders with 40 while skipper Aaron Paxton hit 38. Luke Collins was the best of the Ridge bowlers with 4/70, while Oliver McEnroe snared 2/45. Moorooduc made light work of Somerville, winning by 82 runs. The Eagles resumed at 3/22, chasing 210. Brenton Alp top scored for the Eagles with 56 while Bailey White was next best with 44.

DISTRICT

By IT Gully HASTINGS defended its miserly total of 119 against Baden Powell on Saturday, winning by more than 50 runs. The Braves were always going to start the day in some trouble, resuming at 4/23, however, things didn’t improve any. Bryce Kellerman with 15 was the only remaining Baden Powell batsman to score double figures, as the home side slumped to 64. The Blues went to the crease again and batted another 51 overs, slumping to 5/72. It was enough to pick up a muchneeded win for the Blues. Rye was back to its old ways with the bat on Saturday, thrashed by Mt Martha. The Reds were defending 226 and Rye was resuming at 1/8. The Demons lasted just 56 overs and were bowled out for 97. Josh Gana made a third of the runs, scoring 31, while Matt Whelan was trapped in front for 11.

Rhys Whitling opened the bowling for the Reds and claimed 4/22, while Kyle Bendle bowled 17.2 overs for a return of 3/22. Rosebud wasn’t able to get the 139 runs required for victory against Seaford. The Buds resumed at 0/3 on their home deck, chasing just 138. Billy Quigley (20), Jason Mathers (24) and Pete Doughty (25) all got starts, however, none of them were able to have enough impact to carry their side over the line. Chris Cleef bowled 29 overs for a return of 3/40 and Matt Herbert claimed 3/7 from 11.5 overs. Dean Polson also took 2/22 off 12 and Dale Christie 2/35 off 23. Heatherhill was no match for Seaford Tigers, belted by more than 100 runs. Defending 8/262, the Tigers rolled the Hills for just 145 in 70.4 overs. Gun junior Liam O’Halloran was a star with the ball for the Tigers, claiming 5/28 off 10 overs, while Ash Mills snared 2/41 off 20 overs.

Saints whacked SUB-DISTRICT

By IT Gully BALNARRING won yet another match in MPCA Sub District on Saturday, however, the ladder leaders will not be able to claim the points, or, not yet. The Mornington Peninsula Cricket Association stripped Balnarring of all of their points for claiming they played an unregistered player, Mitch Klienig. Klienig was registered with the club, however, was permitted out to Ivanhoe last season for the final three games of the year. Knowing Mitch Klienig was in fact registered, Balnarring CC was not aware that it required a permit from Ivanhoe back to their club. Rather than communicate and use common sense, the MPCA simply stripped the Saint’s points and provided them with the opportunity to appeal. Balnarring has contested the pennant committee ruling and has asked that they revisit their decision. They have contested this on the grounds that “due process was not followed in accordance with senior playing rule 17 (b), under powers and responsibilities of the pennant committee which states (b) the pennant Committee shall determine appeals against refusals of clearances and applications for match permits. All permit applications

must be submitted in writing and must have been submitted to the player’s club. Such applications must be made on the appropriate form”. There was no permit application submitted in writing to the Balnarring Cricket Club at any point by the MPCA. Balnarring CC has stated that it “certainly would not have played an ineligible player had the MPCA protocol been adhered to.” Surely common sense from the MPCA will prevail here. Simply admit that the process was not followed and give back Balnarring the points they deserve. On the park, Balnarring punished Ballam Park by more than 100 runs. Defending 9/324, the Saints rolled the Knights for 207. Stu Plunkett top scored for the Knights with 65 while Ben King continued his dominant form with the ball, claiming 5/70. Dromana tried valiantly to get the 248 runs required to beat Tootgarook, however, finished 13 runs short. Jaryd Millington picked up 4/51 for Toot while Kierran Voelkl (78) and Zac Klan (73) were the run getters for the Hoppers. In other matches, Carrum was rolled for 101 chasing Tyabb’s 7/246, Boneo beat Skye by seven runs, 2017 to 200 and Frankston YCW was too strong for Carrum Downs, scoring 204 in reply to Carrum Downs’ 177.

Call to include new clubs MPNFL

By Toe Punt A WORKING party representing the majority of Mornington Peninsula Nepean Football League clubs has called on AFL South East to look at existing clubs within the area to introduce a third division in 2019. The working party, which includes John Coburn (Frankston YCW), Mick Dunne (Mt Eliza) and Chris Sharman (Frankston Bombers), met with AFLSE boss John Anderson last week. The working party believes that non MPNFL clubs operating from within the traditional Mornington Peninsula area should be the clubs used to expand the MPNFL competition into three divisions. These clubs include South Mornington, Peninsula Old Boys, Skye, Carrum and Frankston Dolphins, while other clubs could also be targeted, including Chelsea Heights and Lyndhurst. However, despite the large majority of MPNFL clubs opposing the new structure for 2019, AFLSE remains steadfast in its plan to bring in South East Football Netball League (SEFNL) clubs into the three division competition. In 2019, AFLSE has documented that Division One will be made up of the top seven teams of the 2018 MPNFL Division One, as well as the top three SEFNL clubs. Division Two will comprise the remaining three 2018 MPNFL Division One clubs, the top

five MPNFL Division Two clubs and the fourth and fifth-placed SEFNL clubs. Division Three will comprise of the remaining seven 2018 MPNFL Division two teams and the bottom three SEFNL teams. Promotion-relegation will then begin between these three competitions. This resolution remains in force despite the fact that the final report into the Senior Football Competition Review still not being tabled. It also remains in place despite the fact that the majority of the current MPNFL Clubs are opposed to any involvement with SEFNL Clubs. It remains clear that AFLSE agenda is to include SEFNL clubs in any competition, given this is the area of jurisdiction for the AFL region. It’s not about what is best for the MPNFL, it’s about what is the easiest form of governance in the region for the AFL. Surely the working party’s suggestion of creating a third division, made up of clubs already within the MPNFL region, makes more sense to ensure a competitive, sustainable solution. At the meeting, the working party was also told by Mr Anderson that clubs would be required to sign their AFL affiliation agreement before December 1, or they would not be covered by player insurance and would not be able to participate in season 2018 in the AFLSE competition. This is despite the fact that clubs have not been affiliated since the AFLSE came into power a couple of seasons ago.

Beck, McLeod flag five-year plan for Baxter SOCCER

By Craig MacKenzie A CLOSER relationship with new NPL outfit Langwarrin could be the springboard which catapults Baxter into State 2 South-East. That’s the target that new Baxter gaffer Francis Beck and director of coaching Billy McLeod have set in an ambitious five-year plan for the State 4 South club. “We’re looking at two promotions in five years,” said Beck. “If we can do it then we’d call that success. “We’re not ready to be a State 1 club yet and you have to move up then consolidate but we think that what we are aiming for is achievable.” Baxter’s generosity in allowing Langwarrin to hold NPL trials at Baxter Park recently while council work on Lawton Park took place spawned talks between Beck and Langy technical director Stephen Fisher about closer ties between the clubs. Enter Langy assistant coach Ronnie Whitton who had guided the club’s reserves to a title triumph last season and his discussions with Beck led to five Langy players training with Baxter last Thursday with the possibility that more will follow. “I told Langwarrin that if all these guys are interested in staying together then I’ve got the team for them,” said Beck. However there is a fly in the ointment in the form of Skye United coach Billy Armour, a former Langy player of the year who has met with Langy president John Heskins to facilitate the capture of Langy players now surplus to NPL requirements. The five Langy players who trained with Baxter are goalkeeper James Foster, striker Mitch Blake, defender Tim Lee and midfielders Matt Morgan and Jordan Redburn. Blake and Redburn are due to train with Skye this week before deciding where to play next season. Other newcomers to Baxter training were defender Joe Iline from Doveton, midfielder Jack Morgan from Hampton Park United and forward Isaak Barr from Peninsula Strikers.

Baxter boss: New head coach Francis Beck has an ambitious five-year plan.

Mornington duo Sam Luxford and Luke Strohhecker are due to train at Baxter Park this Thursday. Beck, who turns 35 next month, is in his first senior coaching role. He was born in Canberra and played junior soccer at Tuggeranong, Weston Creek and Belconnen Blue Devils before playing with Wollongong Wolves in the national youth league. He moved to Melbourne in 2008 to be closer to his wife’s family and it was a chance meeting with current Southern United junior coach John Meades that led him to Baxter Park. He’s been a jack-of-all-trades at Baxter having been in goal and played as sweeper, in central midfield and up front.

21 November 2017

“I pretty much played down the spine because once you’re out wide there’s too much running involved,” quipped Beck. While lamenting the loss of Frank Ntim and Matt Owens to retirement he was delighted to scotch rumours that had Owen Kilner and Mark Pagliarulo also leaving the first team squad, Kilner rumoured to be heading overseas while Pagliarulo was another on Armour’s radar. “Owen’s definitely staying and ‘Pags’ is going nowhere,” said Beck. However doubts remain over the ability of star striker Liam Kilner to overcome a debilitating back injury. Mornington’s campaign to win an NPL spot has gathered impetus with news that it has clinched the signing

of English striker Max Etheridge. The 27-year-old hitman has already had a successful stint here with Morwell Pegasus, Bentleigh Greens and Kingston City and is expected to return to Melbourne later next month. Etheridge has been on the books of Evo-Stik League South West Division outfit Swindon Supermarine. “We actually contacted Max midway through last season when we heard he was keen to come back,” said Mornington boss Adam Jamieson. “After losing Ryan (Paczkowski) he’s a fantastic signing for us.” The man who wants to be known as the pied piper of the peninsula has been at it again and has lured another two English players to Centenary Park. Former English pro and Peninsula Strikers head coach Andy O’Dell confirmed last weekend that he has clinched the signatures of Nicky McNamara and Josh Howell. McNamara, 28 next month, spent four years with Hull City and had a loan spell with Milton Keynes Dons before O’Dell brought him to Fawkner. McNamara also played with Port Melbourne before returning to England. Howell, 21, has been on Scunthorpe’s books and is a tall left-footed defender. Both players are due to arrived in Melbourne in mid-February. Langwarrin will step up its preparation for its inaugural NPL season by taking on Box Hill United’s seniors and under-20s at Lawton Park on Saturday 2 December. On Saturday 9 December Langwarrin will play Kingston City’s seniors and under-20s at Lawton Park. On Sunday 17 September Langwarrin will take on South Melbourne’s seniors and the curtain raiser will be between Langy’s under-20s and Skye United. Kick-off times will be announced later. A number of triallists were on show last Saturday morning at Lawton Park as Langy gaffer Gus Macleod goes about his task of building a senior

squad for the 2018 season. Young midfielder Darcy Powlik was impressive. He is a former Murray United player who joined Eastern Lions midway through last season. Experienced defender Luke Burgess is another triallist. He has had a stint with South Springvale and joined Whittlesea Ranges from Dandenong City last June. The decision as to which two visa players will be signed for next season will be left for as long as possible with Connor Belger and Paul Speed not due to return from England until early January. Big George Whiteoak will hold talks with Casey Comets this week and seems certain to move while Comets continue to be linked with gun striker Liam Baxter. Southern United is licking its lips at the prospect of moving into its new administrative and training base in Wedge Road, Carrum Downs in 2018. The facility is part of a $7.5 million upgrade of Carrum Downs Recreation Reserve which includes a floodlit multiuser synthetic pitch and a pavilion with dressing rooms, a first-aid room, three referees rooms, kitchen, social area, administration office, meeting room and four storage areas. The project is on track for completion next March. Skye United has retained the services of veteran coach Billy Rae who will again assist Armour with the senior squad and will also coach one of the club’s junior sides. Meanwhile Frankston Pines is in mourning following the death of Campbell Tervit last weekend. Tervit was a long-standing Pines fan and former junior secretary whose Scottish brogue gave a distinctive edge to his vocal support and left the opposition and match officials in no doubt as to which side he followed. “Campbell was a very loyal man, a great Pines man,” said former club president and life member Alan Hodkinson. Tervit was 76 and died following a long illness. He is survived by his wife Rita, their daughter Heather, step-daughter Beverley and sons Michael and Brian.

Late starter smashes through the rankings By Ben Triandafillou IN JUST over a year, junior tennis player Emmerson Priest, of Mt Eliza has risen from competing in entry level competition for the Mornington Tennis Club to sitting in the top 50 of Victoria’s under-12 girl’s category. Her commitment and rapid improvement has seen her move from section six in 2016 to now representing her club in section one and competing in Australian ranking tournament events. Emmerson has had a full schedule over the past few weeks where she has represented the Mornington region at the Judy Dalton Cup and competed in the 2017 Better Tennis Frankston Cup, an Australian ranking tournament. At the Judy Dalton Cup, which was held at the Mornington Tennis Centre on Saturday 28 October, Emmerson helped her side reach second place and take home the runners-up trophy. The following weekend at the Frankston Cup, which was held at Frankston Tennis Club, Emmerson

took out the under-12 doubles event with partner Alexis Stergiopoulos and finished in third place in her singles event. Emmerson said she wasn’t too sure with how she would go at the Frankston Cup where she played doubles with a girl she hadn’t met before. “I was a bit surprised with the overall results,” she said. “I didn’t know what we would be like together as a team, but it turned out that we worked really well together. “I feel like every match and tournament I play in, I continue to play better and improve my results.” Having only started competing in Australian ranking tournaments at the start of this year, Emmerson has now risen to rank 31 in Victoria’s under-12 girl’s category and sits just outside the top 1000 in Australia’s open women’s category. Emmerson trains seven times per week under the guidance of Elite Ten-

PLANS are in full swing for the 13th annual Independence Australia Daddo Charity Golf Day which is set to be held on Friday 24 November. Independence Australia has again teamed up with the Daddo family to host the inaugural event, with more than 130 golfers ready to tee off at Moonah Links on the Mornington Peninsula. Independence Australia chief execu-

tive, Peter Turner said the event holds great significance to the organisation, which supports people living with a disability or personal need. “The Independence Australia Daddo Charity Golf Day has earned a reputation as a go-to event, with a large number of participants and sponsors returning each year,” Turner said. “Thanks to the generosity of our supporters, we are able to continue

nis Academy coaches Kate Antosik (based at the Mornington Tennis Centre) and Greg Wikman (based in Glen Iris) and said she would just love to be one of the next top women’s tennis players in Australia. According to her coaches she has a lot of potential considering how quickly she has risen through the ranks. “She has a great work ethic and has huge potential upon the junior and senior circuit,” Kate Antosik said. “Emmerson only began playing Australian ranking tournament events in 2017, and has already proven that she can compete with these girls who have been playing a lot longer than her.” Emmerson’s result’s from the Frankston Cup has seen her jump up 206 places in the rankings. With no specific upcoming tournaments in mind, Emmerson said she just wants to play as much as she can to reach her goal of playing with the elite.

Golfers geared up for charity golf day to provide essential psychology and counselling services to Victorians living with a disability and their families.” More than 35 teams will battle it out on the Legends and Open courses, with the main attraction being the ‘Hole in One’ competition where golfers will have the chance to win a brand new Mercedes Benz SLC200 thanks to Advance Careers.

With stunning views over Port Phillip Bay & surrounds our beautiful new Function & Event Centre offers the perfect venue for your upcoming celebration. We offer cocktail menus, 2&3 course menus and more - all coupled with superb wines and outstanding service.

The event’s auction and monster raffle are two other highly anticipated parts of the day, with more than $10,000 worth of items up for grabs including a Western Bulldogs 2016 AFL Premiership Lithograph, exclusive dinner gift vouchers, electronics and accommodation packages. Prizes will also be awarded to the winning teams and players scoring the longest drive.

Co-founder Peter Daddo said it was an “absolute honour” to be part of Independence Australia’s main fundraising event, which continues to sell-out each year. “My family and I are looking forward to another memorable day and sincerely thank everyone who has played a part in ensuring this important event continues to strengthen each year,” he said.
