CFA crews’ round the clock efforts CFA Peninsula Fire Brigades Group strike team members were busy with back-burning and blacking-out activities in East Gippsland, just outside of Bemm River, last week. They included Tim Griffiths (Rye), David Burgess (Sorrento), Michael Versteegen (Sorrento Brigade captain), and Mitch MacKenzie (Rye). Their strike team ST803-D8 spent a long, hot day battling blazes in the charred bush leaving crews “tired but safe”. Their trucks were then handed over to the night crew who were scheduled to return them in the morning for another day’s work. Red Hill CFA’s David Breadmore said peninsula fire crews were always eager to help their East Gippsland colleagues. “Whenever we have a fire here they are the first in their trucks to come and help us,” he said.

On duty: David Breadmore and Natalie Houston, inset, were among the many CFA firefighters from the Mornington Peninsula to the South Gippsland fires.

All clear after island fire fright Stephen Taylor steve@mpnews.com.au FRENCH Island fire crews were in “clean-up-and-review mode” yesterday (Monday 20 January) after the weekend’s out-of-control blaze that destroyed 87 hectares of bushland and threatened parts of the island’s koala population. French Island CFA brigade first lieutenant Linda Bowden said cooler weather and rain on Sunday afternoon had brought the situation back to normal after Saturday’s drama in which

residents were told to leave their homes and campers evacuated from walking trails on the 170 hectare island. Dry lightning is being blamed for the blaze which was thought to have started on the previous Wednesday and smouldered for three days before an east-wind change brought it surging to life. It tore through most of the central area of the island and was heading west when contained, 4pm Sunday. Ms Bowden said the aerial water bombing was “fantastic” in controlling the blaze but that this service was

well supported by ground crews from among the island’s 40 CFA members and appliances brought across from Stony Point by ferry. “We had a little bit of everything,” she said. “It was a combined effort.” Linda Guest at the French Island general store said locals were laying low on Monday. “Everyone’s doing fine today after we got rain on Sunday,” she said. Aerial water bombing had made a big impact on the fire. “They were fantastic; we have to give them a lot of credit.”

The CFA’s deputy public information officer Bec McDonald said only one outbuilding – and no houses – had been destroyed in the blaze. Ms McDonald said “about 50-60 CFA and Forest Fire Management Victoria firefighters had worked on the fire, and roughly half that number on the overnight shift”. “Three CFA tankers and three utilities with water tanks and pump units fought the fire, as well as one FFMVic tanker, four utilities and a dozer,” she said. “A bulk water carrier was in attendance and the firefight was support-

ed by aircraft, of course.” Six aircraft were busy dumping fire retardant and Western Port Coast Guard crews were also patrolling the shoreline. Mt Martha Fire Brigade provided a specialist lighting unit, with CFA support crews coming from Kernot-Grantville, San Remo, Wonthaggi, Dalyston and Narre Warren. Most of the island’s koala population lives on the densely forested north-east, and only one was found injured in the weekend’s fires. Zoos Victoria took it to Healesville Sanctuary for treatment.

CFA plea for volunteers to be patient CFA brigades on the Mornington Peninsula have been inundated by volunteers wanting to join up to fight the state’s unprecedented bushfires. However, while their interest is welcomed, the sheer volume of applicants is causing problems. Peninsula Fire Brigades Group officer Timothy Desmond said all brigades welcomed interest from volunteer their time, but 18 applicants in just the past week was too many to handle. “The Country Fire Authority is one of the most respected fire services in the world [and] we sincerely appreciate people wanting to step up and help their community,” he said. High fire activity across the state meant that all eight all peninsula brigades had supplied volunteers and staff to “support crews in NSW earlier in the season and to East Gippsland while still maintaining a local response capacity”. “Since 1 January we have deployed 56 members some on multiple occasions - and another nine leave this Sunday (19 January). Dromana, Flinders, Mt Martha and Rosebud tankers are working in the Swifts Creek/Orbost areas.” Widespread publicity of the fires triggered a strong public response. Mr Desmond said “numerous people” had asked about being a volunteer with the Boneo, Dromana, Flinders, Main Ridge, Mt Martha, Rosebud, Rye, Safety Beach and Sorrento brigades. While the response was “fantastic” volunteers should realise they “won’t be fighting fires this fire season”. “Basic firefighting training is required to make sure our members are equipped with the right skills and knowledge to stay safe and provide the right advice and assistance to the community under challenging and often dangerous circumstances,” Mr Desmond said. “As you can imagine, our brigades – along with many other emergency services – are extremely busy and it is expected to be a very long fire season, so please be patient with us. You might not hear from us for a while, until things settle down, [but] we will contact you.” Stephen Taylor

Shire wants final say MORNINGTON Peninsula Shire wants to protect the peninsula’s “unique landscape” by having the power to decide how much land is set aside for and commercial and industrial purposes. The shire says projections for industrial and commercial land that will be needed on the peninsula are wrong in a plan prepared for the Department of Environment, Land, Water and Planning (DELWP). In a submission to DELWP, the council says the amount of commercial floor space that needed on the peninsula by 2031 is overestimated in the draft Melbourne Industrial and Commercial Land Use Plan. The shire’s submission criticises parts of the DELWP report as being confusing and wrong, especially when it comes to identifying land set aside for port related industries and what is needed in commercial areas. It blames the state government for changing planning laws and allowing shops and supermarkets to operate within industrial zones. The shire says the plan seriously underestimates the amount of land already set aside for port related purposes around Hastings and Crib Point. It says the draft plan and makes only “passing reference” to the government’s choice of Bay West, in Port Phillip, as the site for the state’s next container port, with Hastings an “option in reserve”. The shire says some of the land set aside for port related purposes should be used for agriculture or conservation. While the DELWP report says the peninsula will need to “target” an extra 171,000 square metres of commercial floor space, the shire’s own estimates says it will need 78,000sqm by 2036. The shire says predictions in the draft plan should be used as planning tools rather than targets and would be better “directed” at metropolitan activity centres like Frankston rather than Mornington, Rosebud or Hastings which have limited access to public transport and face “significant environmental restraints”. It says providing electric train services to Hastings would provide “significant benefits” to Victoria. Keith Platt

Deadly start to year on peninsula roads

Improved service A MENTAL health support service in Hastings has received a $500,000 grant from the federal government. Kindred Clubhouse says it will now be able to further address the needs of residents suffering from mental illness as well as expand its services, which include prevocational skilling, transitioning back to work, living skills and structured social activities. The clubhouse, in Marine Parade, will also provide a free service to those with a mental illness who are not on the NDIS. While formal medical treatment treats the debilitating symptoms, the not-for-profit organisation aims to address the ‘gap’ many people experience in finding their place in the community, and feeling a part of society, the Kindred Clubhouse website says. Those who might benefit from its range of services should call 0413 483 310 or visit kindredclubhouse.org.au

Stephen Taylor steve@mpnews.com.au THE Mornington Peninsula’s horror run with road deaths has continued into the New Year with three deaths from collisions in the first fortnight. This toll follows 12 road deaths on the peninsula in 2019 – which included double fatalities at Mt Eliza and Bittern – and the deaths of two motorcyclists. The driver of a Hyundai Santa Fe SUV travelling along Baxter-Tooradin Road, Pearcedale, died when he attempted to overtake two cars and collided head-on with a semi-trailer, 12.20pm, Tuesday 14 January. Emergency services crews were unable to revive the man driving the SUV. The driver of the truck was taken by road ambulance to hospital with non-life-threatening injuries. The helicopter ambulance was unable to land because of poor visibility caused by smoke haze from bushfires. Two men aged 28 and 33 died in a two-car collision at the intersection of Hygeia and Bimble streets, Rye, 10pm, Monday 13 January. Five occupants were in the first vehicle, with the driver and passenger thought to be from Chile. Despite ambulance crews working furiously the driver died at the scene and his passenger died in hospital. A woman, 33, in the same car, was taken to The Alfred hospital in a critical condition and two men were being treated for non-life threatening injuries. The woman’s condition was listed as “stable”, Friday 17 January. The man driving the second vehicle, a Holden Rodeo ute, was taken to hospital with non-life threatening injuries. He is aged 47. While the circumstances surrounding the collision were being investigated by the Major Collision Investigation Unit, Somerville Highway Patrol’s Greg Wolfe said it appeared the car carrying the larger group went through a give-way sign.

Recycled for greens FLINDERS MP Greg Hunt years ago added his voice to those fighting to stop Melbourne Water discharging partially treated sewage into the sea near Gunnamatta. The protesters, led by the Clean Ocean Foundation, successfully forced Melbourne Water to lift its wastewater treatment to Class A, although hundreds of thousands of litres of water are still pumped daily through the ocean outfall. However, more uses are being found for the recycled water and Mr Hunt visited Mornington Golf Club this month where $300,000 from the federal government is being used to bring water to storage dams. Recycled water will be pumped through a pipeline to the dam from where the outfall passes Emil Madsen Reserve on Wooralla Drive, Mt Eliza. The golf club is adding another $300,000 to the project.

Resident James Drummond, who took the picture of the crash scene, said: “It was a shocking night. Everyone should be aware of the dangers of that intersection.” Anyone who saw either of these collisions or who has further information or dash cam footage is urged to contact Crime Stoppers 1800 333 000 or submit a confidential report at crimestoppersvic.com.au A Department of Transport spokesperson described 2019 as a “horrific year on Victorian roads and our thoughts are with every person impacted by a life lost.”

She said the department was making roads safer by the rolling out of flexible roadside safety barriers on key routes in the area. “This is a proven way of reducing road trauma on high-speed roads and is expected to be completed in 2020.” The barriers line the Mornington Peninsula, Frankston and Mooroduc freeways. Other Mornington Peninsula roads have also had rumble strip line-marking installed to reduce the likelihood of run-off road and head-on injury crashes. A two year trial of 80kph speed limits on 38 shire-managed high-speed roads is also under way.

MORNINGTON Peninsula Shire councillors are being told that it is “prudent, diligent and in the public interest” to make sure the shire has not made corrupt planning decisions similar to ones alleged at the City of Casey. The advice is contained in a report seeking council’s support for a review announced by shire CEO John Baker last December of decisions made on planning requests from developer John Woodman and his Mornington-based company Watsons Pty Ltd as well as associated companies Wolfdene Built Pty Ltd and Schutz Consulting Pty Ltd. Several employees of two of these companies have previously worked for the shire and the state government. Councillors will be asked to support Mr Baker’s “transparent and open process to be undertaken by management”. Mr Baker says the review – to be overseen by an “independent probity adviser” - will involve “decisions made for these companies over the past two terms of council (effectively seven years)”. The report prepared by the shire’s governance and legal head Amanda Sapolu – and approved by Mr Baker – concedes “council could resolve to consider earlier time periods”. The mayor Cr Sam Hearn and former

mayor Cr David Gill have said there must be no limit on how far back the inquiry goes (“Decades of decisions being checked” The News 15/1/20). Mr Baker says his inquiry will go beyond that outlined by IBAC in its Casey-based Operation Sandon, which included looking for corruption at state and local government elections and “public officers involved in planning and property development decisionmaking”. In addition to IBAC’s stated aims, Mr Baker says the shire’s investigation will look at decisions made by officers without councillor involvement under delegated authority. It will review declared conflicts of interest by councillors and officers as well as “ascertain any gifts or benefits provided by the relevant companies to councillors or officers”, including electoral donations. In the November 2016 council election, Watsons donated $2489 to Briars Ward candidate, now Cr Rosemary Clark, and $1244 to David Cassells, who stood unsuccessfully in Cerberus Ward. Watsons’ director John Woodman unsuccessfully stood for Briars Ward in 2012 and 2016 (“Shire probe into permits” The News 24/12/19). The recommendation councillors are being asked to adopt next week specifies that Mr Baker and Ms Sapolu “consider all relevant historical and current applications made by the com-

panies to the council, with particular emphasis on the Martha Cove development”. Although IBAC has not stated it will investigate planning on the Mornington Peninsula, it has announced the scope of its inquiry will be widened when hearings resume on 2 March. The shire’s decision to review permits involving the Watsons, Wolfdene and Schutz companies followed similar moves by Frankston and Kingston councils. Since Mr Baker announced the intended inquiry, The News has been told about several permit applications and decisions that ratepayers and councillors anticipate coming under scrutiny. While The News has only been told about issues at Martha Cove being referred to IBAC, it is understood several other submissions will be made. In two instances, shire planners are accused of accepting the “untested legal opinion” of a private surveyor and a legal firm to the detriment of objectors. A shire planner is also alleged to have given approval under delegation to an overseas-based contractor, although the contract was later withdrawn. Another instance includes state government approval of land at Crib Point being rezoned from industrial to residential. The proposed rezoning was backed by the shire.

Up for a song or two: Jim Rogers, Jack Kirby, and Bruce Mitchell. Picture: Supplied

Old Boys in tune to help NOT ones for sitting around doing nothing in an emergency, the musical group Good Old Boys entertained shoppers at the IGA supermarket, Dromana, and raised $500 for the bushfire appeal, Saturday 4 January. Musicians Jack Kirby, of Balnarring, Bruce Mitchell and Jim Rogers – all in their 80s – performed Bluegrass and “other old songs” at their morning gig. “We’ve been playing a long time,” Mr Kirby said. “We are very pleased shoppers responded to the call. The money was handed over to the Bendigo Bank for distribution to the fire fight.” Mr Kirby said the group was motivated to perform after hearing many stories about fire victims “losing everything”.

They also play at Mornington Market when they can, he said.

German classics GERMAN music ensemble Chamber Philharmonia Cologne will perform Classics from Germany at two venues on the Mornington Peninsula this month. They will play at St John’s Anglican Church, Sorrento, 8pm, Friday 24 January, and then again the next day at St Peter’s Anglican Church, Mornington, at 3pm and 8pm, Saturday 25 January. The program ranges from Antonio Vivaldi and his famous Four Seasons to Mozart, Tchaikovsky and Niccolo Paganini.

Wetland values recognised UNTOLD EVENTS CO. PRESENTS

SWAMPS and low-lying areas were once seen as a blot on the landscape, fit only to be drained. But the ecological importance of wetlands is well documented and has been recognised for decades, so much so that there is an annual World Wetlands Day. The day has been held since 1977 and marks the date of the adoption of the Ramsar Convention on Wetlands on 2 February 1971. Activities based around the importance of wetlands are being held on Sunday 2 February at Boneo Park.

The activities at Boneo (312 Boneo Road) have been organised by Western Port Biosphere, Bunurong Land Council, Birdlife Mornington Peninsula, Melbourne Water, Mornington Peninsula Shire, Trust for Nature and Mornington Peninsula Landcare Network. Each of the organisations will have marquees with information and activities happening from 7am to 2pm, including walks, talks and other activities.

TWO groups operating on the Mornington Peninsula are part of a global movement seeking government action to counter climate change. XR Westernport and XR Mornington are part of the British-based Extinction Rebellion movement that has a “core strategy” of “mass disruption of city centres through nonviolent civil disobedience”. Along with XR Frankston, the two peninsulabased branches are among 66 similar groups throughout Australia. Murray Lindsell Turner said people who joined XR Westernport at a meeting in Balnarring Hall on Tuesday 14 January were “willing to be arrested” at future demonstrations. He said the inaugural meeting included school teachers, former politicians, Mornington Peninsula Shire councillors and small business leaders “all seeking clarity and wanting change on climate policy”. Jack Clarke, of XR Mornington spoke about the science and effects of climate change. “Those attending the meeting represent a broad range of community members all keen to get a better understanding on the science and how Extinction Rebellion operates,” Mr Turner said. “The level of discontent about both political parties’ efforts towards climate change was ap-

parent, and the mood of people power with a considered, measured response to world climate change policy at a local level.” Mr Turner said the meeting discussed the need for an “immediate response to climate change and the extinction of flora and fauna” and “the real possibilities of world population and resources management in a stressed environmental-depleted system”. Extinction Rebellion (XR) describes itself as “a peaceful movement of civil disobedience that seeks urgent action to prevent the worst of climate change”. “We are about political change not personal change – though we welcome the latter. We act in full public view and we take responsibility for our actions,” the movement’s website states. “Government must tell the truth by declaring a climate and ecological emergency, working with other institutions to communicate the urgency for change. “Government must act now to halt biodiversity loss and reduce greenhouse gas emissions to net zero by 2025.” With its “Guide to Citizens' Assemblies”, Extinction Rebellion says it wants to mobilise 3.5 per cent of the population to create “a world that is fit for generations to come”. This includes “breaking down hierarchies of power” while seeing the use of “non-violent strategy and tactics as the most effective way to bring about change”.

NEWS DESK Police patrol

With Stephen Taylor

Swimmer drowns at Mornington

Police said he was wearing the same pants with a black jacket, no hat, and had a black mohawk haircut and shaved sides of his head.

SNORKELERS found body of a man who drowned at Mills beach, Mornington, Saturday 11 January. The 36-year-old Cheltenham man was unable to be revived when pulled from the water about 11.30am. Police will prepare a report for the coroner but are not treating the death as suspicious. Drownings occur regularly in Mornington and Mt Eliza. In February last year a man drowned while snorkelling off Mt Eliza. Police were alerted to the missing man off Daveys Bay Road, 5pm, Sunday 10 February. On Sunday 8 April a snorkeler drowned off

Blasts in the night

Ranelagh Beach, Mt Eliza. A witness said he heard the man shouting out but thought he was calling a friend on the beach. A rescue boat was launched from the Ranelagh Club and the man was brought to shore. He was unable to be revived.

Staff threatened A MAN who stole a bottle of spirits from a Mornington liquor store threatened staff who tried to intervene. He returned the next day but left empty handed when again confronted by staff.

The man, above, is described as being in his late teens to early 20s, Caucasian, stocky build, about 177cm wearing a baseball cap, camo pants and blue jacket, stole a bottle of Wild Turkey valued at $46 from a bottle shop in McLaren Place, 10.30pm, January 6. He returned at about midday the next day.

SHOTGUN blasts and Molotov cocktails shattered the overnight calm in Dromana, early Saturday 11 January. Detective Senior Sergeant Miro Majstorovic, of Somerville CIU, said the occupants of a “white vehicle” fired two shotgun rounds at a house in Palmerston Crescent about 2.20am. They also threw Molotov cocktails onto the road out front. Pellets from the shotgun reportedly damaged two cars in the driveway. Three people were at home at the time: a 59-year-old female and two men, aged 51 and 32. No one was injured. Police “can’t rule out” that the parties knew each other, Detective Majstorovic said.

Brazen car theft australiaday.org.au

The story of Australia Is the story of me It’s the story of you It’s the story of we In parts it is painful In parts it is raw In others it’s beautiful Inspiring great awe It tells of many people From far and wide And those who’ve been here Since the beginning of time It brings us together And tears us apart We all have our views So where do we start By listening to each other And sharing our part

We’re all part of the story.

A 2018 Mercedes Benz coupe was stolen in a brazen robbery from a property at Safety Beach, 9.30am, Thursday 9 January. Detective Senior Sergeant Miro Majstorovic, of Somerville CIU, said offenders entered the Lakeside Court house through an open garage door and stole the keys while the 48-year-old female owner was inside. The car had not been recovered last week.

Shoes stolen A TEENAGER who produced a knife and ordered another teen to hand over his shoes is being sought by police. The 15-year-old victim and three friends were in Elizabeth Avenue, Rosebud, when the incident occurred, 5.45pm, Saturday 11 January. Despite the victim managing to get his shoes back police want to talk to the offender. All parties are known to each other.

Safe after flip A WOMAN was able to walk away from her car after it flipped onto its side at the intersection of Nepean Highway and Forest Drive, Mt Martha, 5.20pm, Wednesday 15 January. Mornington police said the Essendon woman, aged 20-25, was turning her four-wheel-drive right into Nepean Highway in heavy rain when the incident occurred.

Catch of the week MORNINGTON Senior Constable Dave Burton and Constable Dylan Beaumont spotted a Mitsubishi Triton ute and trailer parked on the side of the road at Somerville, Wednesday 15 January. Doing a spot check they found the number plates on the car, and the trailer, had both been reported stolen days earlier. Selecting a vantage point they sat and waited until a man walked up and opened the car’s door. When approached the man claimed he had “nothing to do” with the vehicle and had opened the door because he was curious about why it was parked there. The police searched a small bag he was holding and found methamphetamine and the key to the ute, which they found had been stolen from Frankston South on Christmas Day. The 46-year-old, of Narre Warren, was wanted for a range of offences on the Mornington Peninsula and in the eastern suburbs and remanded in custody until a further hearing.

Post Office ram raid

MORNINGTON Post Office was ram-raided last week but nothing was stolen. The offenders – probably after any money inside the ATM – damaged the Main Street shop front but fled empty handed, 5.30am, Friday 17 January. Western Port News

Dunkirk-type effort needed to evacuate a burning peninsula My condolences to those trapped by the inflow of traffic through Rosebud (“Traffic obstacle” Letters 15/1/20). Yes, a life will be lost, however there is a much, much, bigger picture here. Consider the numbers flowing onto the Mornington Peninsula past Rosebud. Have a look at the shape of the peninsula from Rosebud to Point Nepean. Check out the roads you would take if a fire broke out. From Portsea to Rye your choices are Nepean Highway or Melbourne Road. From Rye to Rosebud there is just Point Nepean and Boneo roads or Dundas Street. Should a fire break out anywhere on that thin strip it would sweep across the tea tree forest and tinderbox houses, isolating people to the west, and panic the people to the east. The worry about traffic inflow would seem insignificant as hundreds of thousands of tourists on the east tried to leave at the same time. The fire would overtake the gridlocked traffic, and thousands would die. For those isolated to the west the only safety would be the water (don’t take Melbourne Road). You would need to be 200 metres away from the fire to not get burned, but that puts you in over your head when the tide comes in. Perhaps the navy might drop by and pick you up? After all, they got a thousand out of Merimbula, but it took them four days. You might be the lucky ones out of the tens of thousands paddling beside you. Perhaps a passing jet ski could pick up one, but unlikely. We desperately need a Dunkirk-type plan to immediately be activated by boat clubs around Port Phillip. Plan now, not after it happens. John Dusting, Mornington

Leave leaders alone Is Marg D’Arcy arguing that politicians should not have kept holidays that they have booked (“State, federal reactions” Letters 15/1/20)? The prime minister [Scott Morrison] returned from holidays when things started to turn in to a looming national disaster (as did Victorian Premier Daniel Andrews, who was also on holidays at the time). If it was only prime ministers or state premiers making all decisions I would worry about one person being in control (I think they call them dictators). They all need effective organisations that all states have called “emergency management centres “ run by trained personnel who know what they are doing. Sometimes it can be a hindrance when one is trying to get something done and politicians keep turning up for a “photo opportunity” to get their face on the TV or in the newspapers. The prime minister and our premier are not active firefighters or emergency services volunteers, so keep them away in their offices and meeting rooms organising the relief issues that will be required once the initial publicity has died down and those who are living (or trying to) in those areas affected get the follow-up services that will be needed. Generally it is in the post emergency phase when everyone has gone home that the true

enormity of the situation strikes at those affected and the mental health dangers start to surface. It is the workers and volunteers who work tirelessly in the background that matter, not the politicians. Barry Kirkpatrick, Mt Martha

Maligned Morrison I must confess to being fed-up by the absurd finger pointing at [Prime Minister] Scott Morrison by some letter writers. The man has only been prime minister for less than a year and a half. On the other hand, Labor has been in government in Victoria for 26 of the last 37 years. During much of that time it has scandalously neglected, in connivance with the Greens, to conduct proper bushfire hazard reduction burns during the cooler months. This summer, the enormous build up of forest floor fuel over a very long period of time, in conjunction with the present drought, has resulted in the explosive situation we are now experiencing across the state. Please, let’s have no more virtue-signalling nonsense about climate change causing these fires and, if you’re going to point the finger of blame at anyone, try Labor’s [Premier] Daniel Andrews and Samantha Ratnam of the Greens. Michael Long, Frankston

Lightning, not arsonists I recently had an email exchange with Flinders MP and Health Minister Greg Hunt. He pointed to arson as one of the causes of the current bushfires. He noted that there had been 180 arrests for arson. The reality is the figure of 180 relates to arrests to September last year, before the beginning of this bushfire season; 109 of them relate to what Queensland police describe as police enforcement actions for things like using banned devices on a total fire ban day. Victoria Police has clearly stated that there is no evidence that any of the bushfires we are currently experiencing were started under suspicious circumstances. Instead, the experts suggest lightning started them. Mr Hunt is the man responsible for developing the mental health response for those effected by bushfires, yet he appears happy to spread misinformation about people causing the bushfires that have led to such devastation and trauma. Marg D’Arcy, Rye

What people have wanted for many years now is action on climate change and the calling out of some of our allies and trading partners on that issue. Australia could set a good example to the rest of the world by becoming a zero carbon emitting nation and showing the way for others to follow. But no, that’s not the LNP government’s way, they would rather keep on selling coal and gas to the world and so make the next bushfire season or drought and flood ever more destructive. As it turns out, destructive for Australians first. They don’t care if they have to shut down government because of unbreathable air in Canberra, as long as the carbon lobby keeps on donating to their next election budget. The governments are throwing huge amounts of dollars at the aftermath of these conflagrations, but it will never be enough to make up for 10 years of missed chances to do something meaningful about climate change. Rupert Steiner, Balnarring

Corruption to IBAC A group of Sorrento property owners has submitted a petition to Mornington Peninsula Sire Council calling for a review of past project approvals given the revelations arising from the probe [by the Independent Broad-based Anti-corruption Commission - IBAC] into Casey Council (“Decades of decisions being checked” The News 15/1/20). The signatories to the petition believe it is necessary to establish that councillors and council officers (or any associates) were not the recipients of any financial or non-financial benefits that could be interpreted as influencing their decision-making. The outcome of the review should be made public and any hint of corruption should be referred to IBAC. Geoff Allen, Mt Eliza

Flawed system Before coming onto Mornington Peninsula Shire Council at the last election, l had been for years concerned with the process of government planning decisions including from planning ministers and [the Victorian Civil Administrative Tribunal] VCAT. I continue to be concerned, but thanks to the Independent Broad-based Anti-corruption Commission investigation, The Age newspaper and The News there is now an opportunity to expose the flaws and improve the planning system that has gone on unquestioned and unchecked and too often benefited the few instead of the public interest. David Gill, councillor Red Hill Ward, Mornington Peninsula Shire

First climate refugees

Labor’s neglect

I never would have anticipated that the Mornington Peninsula would be the first place in Australia to receive a load of climate change refugees (“Peninsula welcome for fire evacuees” The News 15/1/20). These climate change refugees were not from a Pacific island, they were all dinky die Australians coming from Mallacoota in eastern Victoria. How good is ScoMo [Prime Minister Scott Morrison] running around the devastated areas and forcing people to shake his hands? He and his government are not getting it.

Having received the latest colourful six-page brochure from my local Nepean MP Chris Brayne, I must say it made for some entertaining and quite amusing reading. He’s “excited to announce funding for long awaited redevelopments” at three local schools. One of the projects had “stalled despite local representatives being made aware of the project back in 2015. This project had been fought for by the school community … for many years.” He further states that “local funding allowed all schools to update facilities that for too long

have been neglected”. And that “finally, our schools are getting the investment they deserve”. I’m not sure if Mr Brayne sees the irony in his own words. Considering Labor has been in power in Victoria for 17 out of the past 21 years, he is in effect pointing the finger for the ongoing neglect squarely where it belongs, with his own party. One hopes that a state government, which should be looking after the needs of all Victorians, allocates funding on criteria that involves more than just which side of politics has managed to win a particular seat. Christine Fry, Blairgowrie

Downhill racing I write in support of Mornington MP David Morris and his warning of the danger to Balcombe Grammar students using the pedestrian crossing in Nepean Highway, Mount Martha (“Cars ‘jump’ red lights at school” The News 16/12/19). I drive and collect my grandchildren each Thursday and park opposite the school. In that short time while sitting in my car waiting for the children, I observe traffic coming down hill at speed. I cannot understand why two 80kph speed signs are installed on this down hill section and not restricted speed signs. Worse is the driver who I see run the red light endangering everyone at this crossing. The lives of many children are in the hands of the crossing attendant. I have written to the Road Traffic Authority with no response. Mornington Peninsula Shire informed it has forwarded my inquiry on. To where? Surely duty of care is required by all at this crossing? The responsible authority must act now and install appropriate speed zones at the approaches to the Balcombe Grammar School crossing. Allan Lowe, Sorrento

Controlling jet skis I too live not too far from the bay in Mt Martha, but not subject to the noise of jet skis (“Ban bay jet skis” Letters 15/1/20). The dangers of these craft, however, are all too apparent. Even so, it’s not the jet skis themselves, but the way in which they are manoeuvred by the riders, many of who seem to delight in taking risks too near to others in the water, be it swimmers or other boats, in spite of regulations. In addition to these regulations, I suggest two legal requirements: 1) that all jet skis have a registration number of a very large size, bold, and easily seen from a distance, painted on both sides of the ski, positioned to be unimpeded by any part of the rider’s body; 2) that all those who intend to ride a jet ski on the bay sign in online with the local municipality or with coast guards, or whatever is the best way of keeping a track on jet ski users, and then they have to sign out at the end of their time on the water. Consideration for others’ safety and taking the long view to envisage the consequences of dangerous actions, are characteristics which are not always completely internalised by some young people, therefore restraints need to be imposed externally. Ruth Hilton, Mt Martha


100 YEARS AGO THIS WEEK...

The Frankston Show - A great success Compiled by Cameron McCullough YESTERDAY witnessed the revival of the Frankston Show, and the public showed its appreciation by turning out in its hundreds. The “gate” proved a record, the takings at the turnstiles amounting to £60/10/-. This exceeds the results attained in previous years. In addition, a very large number of members’ tickets were sold, so that it is difficult to arrive at a correct estimate of the attendance. Competent judges incline to the belief that the number of people on the ground yesterday was far its excess of that of former shows. The weather, contrary to the promise of early forenoon, was not oppressively hot, and the beautifully shaded park proved an ideal spot for the numerous parties picnicking under the pine trees. On all sides comments were heard expressive of delight at the charming features of Frankston’s noted playground, and visitors from lessfavoured localities congratulated the town on possessing such a magnificent asset. Yesterday’s show was the eighteenth exhibition held under the auspices of the Frankston Horticultural and Agricultural Association. The last show was held in the year 1913. Activities were suspended during the war period, and it is gratifying to find that the decision of the association to again renew its operations has met with such splendid success. The Hon. A. Downward, M.L.A., in formally opening the show, referred to’ the high reputation held by theassociation in years past, and while

admitting that the suspension of the show had proved a big setback, expressed the belief that the association would easily overcome every disability, and work up to be one of the most important fixtures of its kind in the State. This view found endorsement during the day from many of the visitors from centres like Dandenong, Cranbourre, Moorabbin, and other towns, where exhibitions of a similar .nature are held and, of course, the actual result attained establishes the fact beyond doubt that the Frankston association, under wise and progressive management, has the hall of success at its feet. There are many improvements that could be suggested, and the committee, no doubt, have noted deficiencies and will take steps to effect improvements before next year. *** THE formal opening of the new brick church building, erected by the Methodist people at Langwarrin, will take place on Thursday, 23rd inst., at 3pm. An address will be given by the Rev. A. E. Albiston, M.A., president of the Conference. At 5.30pm there will be a tea meeting in the State school adjoining the new building – admission 1s 6d. This will be followed by a grand concert in the Church at 8pm, for which at attractive programme is in the course of preparation. Then on Sunday January 25th, the Rev. J. Thomas, B.A., of Canterbury, will conduct the first services, the time being 3 and 7.30pm. *** ON Friday 23rd January, Messrs

Brody and Mason will hold a clearing sale at Seaford, on account of Mr. M. Roache, who is leaving the district. *** THERE was good competition at the property sale conducted by Messrs Brody and Mason at their Frankston mart on Saturday. All the lots in the Denby Estate were disposed of and after competition a seven-roomed house, situated on “The Heights”, was knocked down to Mr. John E. Jones, the shire secretary. The property offered by the trustees in the estate of the late Mr. W. Taylor, near the Mile Bridge Melbourne Road, was passed in, but it is understood, was later disposed of privately at the reserve figure. It is a good sign to find Frankston’s own sons coming back to the old place to enter into commerical activities. Mr. L. Rogers, the eldest son of Mr G. Rogers, after a large business experience in Melbourne and other centres (interrupted only when he enlisted and served with the A.I.F. during the late war), has arranged to enter into partnership with his father in the old established ironmongery business in Playne Street. Bringing with him, as he does, the enthusiasm of youth, and a thoroughly practical knowledge of hardware, crockery and kindred branches of the trade, he should speedily succeed in making the new firm a household word, not only in Frankston but throughout the peninsula. *** MR. J. Gliddon, stationmaster at Seaford, has retired, from the Victorian Railways, after thirty-five years’

WHAT’S NEW...

service. Mr. Gliddon was Seaford’s first permanent stationmaster, and by his retirement this district loses a courteous gentleman and a very able officer. During his five and a half years, at Seaford Mr. Gliddon carried out his duties with great tact and ability, which earned for him the esteem of all. Both Mr. and Mrs. Gliddon took a very keen interest in the welfare of the school children, who will miss their thoughtful kindness very much. *** MAJOR Conder, who has again taken charge at the Langwarrin Military Camp, was present at the Franktston Show yesterday and took an active part in several of the competitions. *** MR. R. T Picking, who, while resident in Frankston, took a leading part in the advancement of the town, spent the past month in his seaside residence at Frankston. In the course of conversation with a local townsman, Mr. Picking, who travels throughout the State of Victoria, said Frankston is undoubtedly the best place for residence in the State. *** MR. Victor Fitzpatrick, late postmaster, at Frankston, was present at the Frankston New Year’s Day sports, and received a warm welcome from his many Frankston friends. *** MR. E. H. Richmond, who was associated with his father, Mr. H. J. Richmond, in the management of the Frankston “Standard” some fifteen years ago, has been spending the holi-

days in Frankston, as the guest of Mr. and Mrs. J. Jolly, “Warren Hill”. Mr. Richmond is greatly impressed with the progress that Frankston has made in recent years, and considers that there is every probability of land values reaching a much higher level, and population greatly increasing, with the completion of the railway electrification scheme. He expresses astonishment that the citizens have not insisted upon an improvement being effected in the condition of Kananook Creek, which is an eyesore to the town, and must be a menace to health. Another drawback is the absence of a bowling-green, and when the water service is installed at Frankston a move should be made in the direction of establishing a bowling club, which will undoubtedly prove a great source of attraction for visitors, as well as providing healthy relaxation, for local residents during the summer months. Mr. Richmond has forsaken tennis for bowls, and he was one of the founders of the Devonport (Tasmania) Bowling Club, of which he gained the championship on four occasions, and filled the position of runner-up for two years. He has also interested himself in Masonic affairs during his residence in Tasmania, and is a Past Master of the Mersey Lodge. His father still evinces a keen interest in bowls. *** FROM the pages of the Mornington Standard, 16 January 1920

Attention Schools, sporting clubs & community groups

Start the school year on the right foot CHILDREN’S feet differ from those of adults as they are not yet fully formed until their teens; so well fitted shoes are essential to avoid future foot problems. Bayside Shoes has been professionally fitting shoes since 1987 from infants in first walkers, children from prep to senior school and for adults to mature age. A child’s foot will double in size by the age of one. Foot growth is approximately 9mm per year between the ages of 5 and 12 with most children reaching their adult foot size before they are 14 years old. Quality school shoes are a form of health insurance for your child’s feet. Good quality full grain leather ensures a natural material that is breathable and durable for every day use. A moulded, high grade heel counter offers lasting ankle support and foot stability. A leather tongue with internal shoe quarter linings creates a soft, breathable cushion that reduces foot humidity and gives foot comfort. A flex controlled polyurethane outsole gives a lightweight and durable, slip resistant tread for all weather conditions. ROC range of school shoes have not only the above qualities but many more including a bounce back toe stiffener to retain lasting shape to withstand the severe wear and tear of a child’s activities. ROC is available in half shoe sizes from sizes UK 3 to UK 13. ROC Strobe and

Elite come with a set of 3 innersoles that offers an E/F/G Multi fit where you can add or remove innersoles to fit the child’s foot as they grow. This allows you to create your own perfect width fit to match your child’s feet as they grow and maximize the shoe’s durability. These can also be removed if the child has a customized orthotic innersole. The SureFit range also offers a removable innersole across its infant and senior school range of quality leather shoes. Their shoes offer arch support for the prevention of flat feet: a firm heel counter providing stability and rear foot motion control with specific toe, wear and tear features for their infant girls and boys shoes. Their senior school Dion range offers a school shoe that is built like a runner. Designed with1.8mm thick water resistant durable leather, lightweight phylon outsole, removable arch support innersole with a hardwearing and flexible non-slip rubber outsole. Bayside offers a wide range of school shoe choice including Clarks, Harrison and Wilde with a professional shoe fitting service.

WHAT’S NEW...

Rock royalty do the Traveling Wilburys IF you had tried to plan it, it never would of happened. Rated by Rolling Stone Magazine as the best group of all time, The Traveling Wilburys unexpectedly carved their way to success in the late 1980s. Superstars Bob Dylan, George Harrison, Jeff Lynne, Roy Orbison and Tom Petty made their mark on music history as part of The Traveling Wilburys, with timeless hits including End Of The Line, Last Night, Handle With Care, She’s My Baby and many more. Their debut album “Volume 1” won the 1990 Grammy Award for Best Rock Performance although the band never performed live. Now from The Producer/Director of “The Man In Black” and “At Last The Etta James Story” comes a new style of Show.

“End Of The Line” takes you through a narrative and musical journey of The Traveling Wilburys and gives an insight into the peaks and valleys of the band’s stellar yet short lived story. Performed by a who’s who of Oz Rock: Nick Barker, Brian Mannix, JR Reyne, Bernard Curry, and Scott Darlow, “End Of The Line” casts a spot light on one of the biggest super bands that was not planned and never played live. “They shared an unexpected special moment of writing and recording music for pure joy,” said Producer Simon Myers. “A special moment that led to a string of hits and two unforgettable albums”. The End Of The Line - The Music Of The Traveling Wilburys will be at Frankston Arts Centre on 9 February. Tickets via thefac.com.au

Hat trick doesn’t help Pines, Dromana get within a whisker, Baden Powell beat Flinders By Brodie Cowburn

PENINSULA

A HAT trick from Pines bowler Jackson Mockett was not enough to get his side over the line against Somerville on Saturday. Pines had a lot of work to do at Eric Bell Reserve, having only made 94 runs the week prior on day one of their clash. Mockett’s haul of 6/41 was impressive, but Somerville still managed to grab the win. They finished all out for 169 runs. Pines’ second innings finished at 7/90. At Ballam Park East, Red Hill did enough to grab a win over Long Island. Chasing 112 to win, Red Hill started things off well. They ended up surpassing their target with seven wickets in hand. Simon Dart was Red Hill’s best with the bat, reaching his half century. His side finished the day at 8/134. Moorooduc’s impressive day one total of 252 was enough for them to secure victory against Main Ridge. Tom Shayler was a big contributor for Moorooduc on day two, taking 5/54. His bowling efforts helped restrict Main Ridge to 170 off 50 overs. Heatherhill also managed to defend their day one total in their clash against Pearcedale. Chasing 251 to win, Pearcedale didn’t get close. They ended up all out for a paltry total of 90. They were made to follow on but avoided an outright loss, ending the day at 7/68.

DISTRICT

DROMANA fell just 12 runs short of victory in a thrilling run chase against Hastings on Saturday. Needing 141 to win on day two, Dromana were helped by a massive effort from number five batsman Dewayne Bowden, who put 77 runs on the board. Bowden was still out in the middle when Dromana were at 8/130. Once his wicket fell, his side’s last wicket fell shortly afterwards. They ended up all out for 130. Shavidu Amarasinghe was the best of the bowlers on day two, taking 4/37 for

Hastings. Mt Martha performed well against Delacombe Park on Saturday, chasing down their target of 170 runs needed to win. Openers Simon Street and Kade Bendle got their side off to a good start, putting together a 74 run opening stand. Their efforts helped Mt Martha chase down their target with six wickets in hand. Seaford Tigers had a tough day ahead of them at Roy Dore Reserve, having to chase down 229 to defeat Carrum. Tigers’ openers Jake Harrington and Brayden Roscoe were brilliant, putting together a 141 run opening stand. Roscoe top scored for his side with 78, including 7 fours and 2 sixes. The Tigers eventually got over the line for a hard fought victory.

SUB DISTRICT

CARRUM Downs fought valiant-

ly, but weren’t able to chase down Seaford’s mammoth total of 302 at Kananook Reserve. James Quarmby was Carrum Downs’ best batsman on the day. He scored 87 to give his side a shot of grabbing the win, but unfortunately for him it wasn’t quite enough. Carrum Downs got to a respectable total of 231 before being bowled out. Skye had a tough afternoon at home against Tyabb, falling to an outright loss. After having already fallen to a first innings defeat on day one, Skye needed to perform a lot better on day two to prevent another defeat on the second day of play. They managed to score 124 off 40 overs. During their second innings Tyabb proved up to the task, reaching 0/84 off just over 15 overs without loss of a wicket, guaranteeing them an outright win. At Truemans Road Reserve, Rye’s first innings total of 54 doomed them to

an outright loss in their two day clash against Tootgarook. Tootgarook declared at 7/129 in their first innings. Rye’s second innings was also disappointing, and they were dismissed for just 61. Boneo took on Frankston YCW at home on Saturday. They defended their total of 166 by bowling the Stonecats out for 102.

PROVINCIAL

BADEN Powell managed to get the better of Flinders in a high scoring clash at BA Cairns Reserve. Defending a day one total of 249, Baden Powell were in with a good shot at victory. Flinders got off to a good start though, going 54 runs without losing their first wicket. Flinders’ middle order struggled, and at 5/102 their run chase looked doomed. An excellent half century from Shane Beggs late in the game helped get their run chase back on track, but it wasn’t

quite enough to get his side over the line. Flinders ended up all out for 236, 14 runs short of a win. At Lloyd Park, Peninsula Old Boys fell just short of victory against Langwarrin. Chasing 187 for victory on day two, Peninsula OB’s run chase started poorly. They looked in bad shape at 4/38. Old Boys’ middle order performed well and put them back into contention, but they didn’t quite do enough to grab the win. Peninsula OB ended up all out 25 runs short of victory, Langwarrin bowler Malcolm Coutts played a big part, taking 4/13 off 15 overs. At Emil Madsen Reserve, Mt Eliza chased down Baxter’s total of 98 with two wickets in hand. A century from Robert Wilson has the highlight of the day in Mornington and Sorrento’s clash. The Sorrento batsman scored 129 to help his side chase down their target of 160.

Clubs lining up for ‘Pags’, Acs SOCCER

By Craig MacKenzie VETERAN Somerville Eagles striker Mark Pagliarulo and goalkeeper Robbie Acs have clubs clamouring for their services. “Pags” met with Somerville president Luke Mulder, vice president Craig Bozelle and director of football Zach Peddersen on Sunday having previously spoken with new senior coach Billy Rae. It’s understood that the club is keen for him to take on a role as a playing assistant coach. His strike partner David Greening is on an overseas holiday but it’s believed that he too has attracted the attention of other clubs. “Pags” will be a busy man as he was due to meet with State 5 outfit Rosebud yesterday (Monday) and has had contact with Skye United head coach Phil McGuinness, Peninsula Strikers assistant Scott Morrison, Frankston Pines coach Kevin “Squizzy” Taylor, Endeavour United coach Billy Armour and White Star Dandenong coach Alex Halikias. “I’ll speak with them all properly and decide after the Wallace Cup,” he said. Meanwhile experienced No 1 Acs had his second hitout with Peninsula Strikers in Saturday’s 4-0 win over Endeavour United at Centenary Park following the previous week’s intraclub match. The former Langwarrin custodian still hasn’t made up his mind as to his immediate playing future and Seaford United continues to pursue his signature. Acs was rarely tested against Endeavour but was called into action midway through the first half when forced to react quickly to get a hand to the ball and deny the visitors from a one-on-one situation. Strikers goals came from Jai Power (2), Julian Malander and Naseer Mohammed. The opening goal came via a superb ball over the top which Malander slotted past the keeper.

Power scored the next two goals his second following an excellent combination with Tuach Ter and Ter had another assist for the fourth goal when he set up Mohammed for a first-time strike from close range. Strikers may have to add John Prescott, Oscar Marsden and Danny Brooks to the list of player exits with State 2 rival Berwick City extremely confident of signing the trio. And in NPL2 news Langwarrin has confirmed that English striker Prescott won’t be joining the club. “It’s a pity because I was looking forward to working with him,” head coach Scott Miller said. “We still have three or four places in our playing budget to fill and although I’d ideally like a squad of 20 it’s difficult to get in the type of player that you’d want. “But we have a number of names on our list and

The Victorian Equal Opportunity Act 1995 makes it unlawful for an advertiser to show any intention to discriminate on the basis of sex, pregnancy, race, age, marital status, political or religious belief or physical features, disability, lawful sexual activity/sexual orientation, HIV/AIDS status or on the basis of being associated with a person with one of the above characteristics, unless covered by an exception under the Act. As Network Classifieds could be legally liable if an unlawful advertisement is printed, Network Classifieds will not accept advertisements that appear to break the law.

I’ll be meeting with some of them in the next couple of weeks.” Skye United continued to prepare for the State 2 season with a 1-1 draw with East Brighton on pitch 2 at Monterey Reserve on Saturday. Mark O’Connor came off the bench and his perfectly struck chip levelled the scores in the first half. East Brighton was unbeaten in State 4 East last season and strolled to the title with a 10-point margin. “They were very impressive and I know it’s early days but I would back them for another promotion,” Skye boss Phil McGuinness said. “I was very pleased for our first pre-season game. “I know we made a few silly errors at times in losing the ball so easily and a couple of bad decisions going forward but overall it was a hard workout and everybody put in a tough shift. “It was also our first opportunity to try out a few new players who didn’t disappoint.” Newcomers included Endeavour United full back Michael Rovinson, former Peninsula Strikers midfielder Joe Buccello, 16-year-old Logan Magri from Casey Comets and Naveed Hashimi who played in the Melbourne Chinese Soccer Association competition last year. McGuinness was particularly delighted to have John Andrinopoulos back in action after the big defender suffered a partial ACL tear and also had a hernia operation last season. “That was the highlight of the day for me,” McGuinness said. “Johnny has been out of action since last May but still attended most training sessions and all the games. “I know it killed him not being able to play last season but he stuck to his recovery 100 per cent and it showed on Saturday with a man-of-thematch performance.” Skye was without Jack Gallagher, Mo Elhassan and Gerard Lawler while Pines striker Travis Ernsdoerfer was unavailable and is yet to sign. Striker Mikey Turner is uncertain about his playing future.

Baxter is keen to talk to the ex-Langy player who also is considering a return to Lawton Park to play in the over-35s in the Bayside League. There’s also doubt about Maxim Avram’s future and McGuinness planned to talk to him as we went to press. McGuinness initially planned to add three players to the senior squad but it increasingly looks like he may add more. Skye’s next outing is the Steve Wallace Cup on 1 February at Centenary Park. “I love this competition and I really look forward to it every year,” McGuinness added. “I know it’s a lot of work but I would love to see this cup get even bigger over the next few years and maybe even become a two-day competition.” In State 3 news Frankston Pines senior coach Kevin “Squizzy” Taylor and vice-president Victor Kumar flew to Fiji last weekend to finalise arrangements for bringing players to the local outfit for the upcoming season. Taylor is confident that all the paperwork will be processed shortly and he expects the players to fly to Melbourne next month. Contracts will have to be signed to satisfy the Fijian FA prior to their international release to curtail Pines from financial gain should the players switch to higher-ranked clubs here. Pines seniors and reserves took on Bunyip last Saturday on the main pitch at Monterey Reserve with the reserves drawing 2-2 and the seniors winning 4-1. Lachlan McMinimee (2), Hamraz Zanoozi and a triallist from Doveton scored in the senior match. Zanoozi played with Langwarrin’s under-20s last season. Other new faces in the Pines side were Callum Richardson, 27, from Somerville Eagles and a former Seaford United player and Stephan Ngoneh from Dingley Stars. Richardson played quite a few games at full back for Somerville but Taylor plans to use him further afield. “He will bring dynamism and versatility in the attacking third,” Taylor said. “He can play anywhere across the front four, has a fantastic workrate and is a real handful for defences with his dribbling ability, movement and unpredictability.” Here are some pre-season schedules (kick-off times are subject to change so check club facebook pages for any updates): Langwarrin’s pre-season schedule: v Eastern Lions, Gardiners Creek Reserve, Saturday 8 February 12pm, 2pm, 4pm; Preston Lions, B. T. Connor Reserve, Saturday 15 February, 12.30pm, 3pm; Doveton, Waratah Reserve, Saturday 22 February 11am, 1pm, 3pm; Box Hill, Wembley Park, Saturday 29 February kick-off times TBC; v Nunawading, Lawton Park, Saturday 7 March kick-off times TBC. Seaford United’s pre-season schedule: v Boronia at North Seaford Reserve, Saturday 8 February 1pm and 3pm; Aspendale Stingrays at North Seaford Reserve, Saturday 15 February 1pm and 3pm; Middle Park at North Seaford Reserve, Saturday 8 February 1pm and 3pm; and FFA Cup on Saturday 29 February.
