Jamaica up, eating after muddy fall A ROPE harness was used to rescue much-loved pet horse Jamaica after she lost her footing and slid down an embankment at about 7.30am on Thursday 20 July. Owner Brenda Robinson, of Frankston-Flinders Rd, Frankston South, said the 39-year-old mare could not regain her footing in the wet and muddy conditions, and lay stranded in the cold for half an hour. Frankston SES crews slung ropes around the horse’s middle and lifted her into a standing position while a vet checked her condition. Ms Robinson, Jamaica’s second owner over the past 10 years, said she was “very happy” with the work of the rescue crews. “They did a wonderful job,” she said. “Jamaica is up, eating and moving around and the vet says she is okay.” Picture: Gary Sissons

Western Port ‘suitable’ for gas ships Keith Platt keith@mpnews.com.au THERE would be no problem in Western Port being used by the 290 metre long gas tankers that energy supplier AGL would use to import liquefied natural gas (LNG) from a floating terminal at Crib Point, according to a former Port of Hastings harbourmaster. Captain Dick Cox said ship to ship transfers had previously been con-

ducted safely at Crib Point and there may be no need for having fire tugs “on immediate availability … providing there is adequate fire control systems available on the jetty to international standard”. AGL has named Western Port as one of three sites being investigated as an import terminal for LNG from Australia and overseas. The proposal to import LNG has led to criticism of government tax policies

which make it profitable for gas to be imported, even though Australia is one of the world’s two largest exporters. The federal government on Monday said it would impose “last resort” restrictions on gas exports in 2018 if it looked like there would be domestic shortages. “It would surely be better for Victorian consumers to have more competition in our local market through cheaper imports than AGL importing

through NSW or SA,” former Port of Hastings harbourmaster Captain Dick Cox told The News. The state government, although accepting an Infrastructure Victoria recommendation against building a container port at Hastings, has said it wants to increase its use for “bulk” goods, including pretroleum products. Capt Cox said Western Port would have no problem handling the 290 metre long LNG tankers used by AGL.

Their fuel is the boil off from the cargo – [which means] no risk of damage to mangroves or seagrass from oil spills - which is kept liquid at minus 160 degrees Celsius - it has to be warmed before it can be put into the local grid which is the job of the permanently moored vessel, which, hopefully will be tied up at Crib Point No.2 Jetty.” Continued Page 4

Protest calls for end to offshore detention centres

Hard hats and hi vis: Kay Samuel, Sam Samuel and Greg Hunt kept their feet dry while “turning the first sod”at the site of Samkay Health’s aged care centre at Tyabb. Picture: Gary Sissons.

Site works for aged care centre THE first sod was turned last Thursday on a $30 million 94-bed aged care centre at Tyabb. Samkay Health’s CEO Tom Joseph said the centre, scheduled for completion by early 2018, “will provide employment opportunities during construction as well as 100 ongoing positions for local residents once the facility is opened”. “We are looking forward to becoming a valued part of the Tyabb community and assisting local residents to age in place in a supportive environment in their home township,”

Mr Samuel said. “Tyabb is a lovely community and this centre will allow older residents to remain living the town while receiving the care and assistance they need as they age.” Health Minister and MP for Flinders Greg picked up a shovel to turn the first sod at the construction site in The Crescent, saying he was “looking to seeing it completed”. “Older Australians are increasingly playing an important role in their communities and value their independence, wellbeing and quality of life,” Mr Hunt was quoted as saying

in a statement released by Samkay Health. “People become connected to their communities, where they have built strong friendships and support networks over a lifetime. “Aged care centres like the one Samkay is constructing here at Tyabb allow residents to remain living in their home communities for longer.” Mr Hunt said Australians’ average life expectancy was set to increase to 95 years for men and 97 years for women by 2054.

THIRTY people attended an evening vigil in Hastings on Wednesday in protest against the federal government’s treatment of detainees on Manus Island and Nauru. Another vigil attended by a similar number was held earlier that day in Mornington. Both events were arranged by Mornington Peninsula Human Rights Group and Southern Peninsula Grandmothers Against the Detention of Refugee Children, with support from church groups and individuals. As part of a national day of action by the Australian Refugee Action Network the protesters called for the immediate closure of off-shore detention centres, with the 2000 refugees and asylum seekers being held there brought to Australia. Candles were lit to show that the refugees were not forgotten – and nor were the six who had died in detention over the past four years. “The vigil aimed to demonstrate that the refugees are Australia’s responsibility,” organiser Ann Renkin, of Shoreham, said. “It is unconscionable that, after four years, people continue to languish in these places. Most have been recognised as refugees and we owe them protection and safety “Although the US resettlement deal was announced eight months ago, not one person has been resettled, and it is

unlikely the deal will provide safety for all. The obvious and humane solution is to evacuate the centres and bring these people to Australia.” Papua New Guinea is expected to shut down the Manus Island detention centre in October, while the service and security provider – Wilsons – is expected to withdraw from Nauru. “No plans which include all people have been announced by the government. It is urgent that the centres be evacuated immediately,” Ms Renkin said. “The fact that 60 people from the Mornington Peninsula came to these vigils on a very cold day is indicative of the real concerns our communities have about the reported brutality occurring and affecting the lives of men, women and especially children. The situation is intolerable.” Stephen Taylor

Port for gas ships

Departure point: A tanker awaits its cargo at the EssoMobil wharf at Long Island Point, Hastings. Picture: Supplied

Continued from Page 1 Capt Cox said largest tanker to enter Western Port was the 300m Amazon Maru on 10 November 1987. “The LNG ships are 290 metres long, in other words the channel is more than adequate and of internationally accepted standard. Western Port is already being used as a major site in the gas economy through ExxonMobil’s gas processing and oil storage plant at Long Island Point, Hastings, which supplies the by-products of natural gas production to customers in eastern Australia and throughout the Asia-Pacific region. The natural gas extracted from the Gippsland basin by the company’s joint venture with BHP is piped for sale in the domestic market at Longford, near Sale, with ethane, propane and butane being processed and exported from Hastings. The Long Island plant does not produce or export liquefied natural gas (LNG), which energy supplier AGL is proposing to import through a floating terminal at Crib Point (“Western Port link in gas plans” The News 18/7/17). “Contrary to your article we’re not part of the east coast gas problem, we’re part of the solution,” EssoMobil’s public and government affairs

manager Andrew Murphy said in response to the article which stated that LNG was being exported from Long Island Point. “While Long Island Point is a crucial part of our operations, it does not process or distribute natural gas - which is used to make the liquefied natural gas that AGL is looking to import,” he said. “Rather, Long Island Point carries out the final stages in the processing of liquefied petroleum gas – ethane, which is used to make plastics, propane for barbecue gas and butane for cigarette lighter gas - and stores crude oil prior to distribution to refineries in Australia and overseas. “We produce more propane and butane than Victoria can use and so the remainder is shipped to customers across eastern Australia and the Asia-Pacific region.” Mr Murphy said the company had been supplying gas from the Gippsland Basin to the domestic market for more than 45 years. “Indeed, 2016 was the highest gas production year ever in the history of our operations, supplying approximately 20 percent of east coast demand, and we expect similar production levels this year.”

Gift a ‘sustainable contribution’ to maternity care A $5 MILLION gift from Brian and Margaret Goding has paid for most of the redevelopment of the maternity unit at The Bays Hospital, Mornington, which will be named in honour of Mrs Goding. The grant from the Goding Foundation – the Mornington family’s philanthropic arm – is the largest in the hospital’s history. Mr Goding said The Bays had an “essential role in providing healthcare services for future generationsâ€? hoped his family’s support will inspire others to do the same. The Goding family, which has run Moorooduc Timber & Hardware for 60odd years and where Mr Goding is CEO, has been associated with the hospital for three generations. His first contact was in 1939 when his sister was born there and he paid a visit. That association has continued with the couple’s five children being born there and, more recently, many of their grandchildren. In all, 37 members of the extended family. “Our hope is that the gift will make a lasting and sustainable contribution to maternity care to our community for generations to come,â€? Mr Goding said. It comes as The Bays marks 80 years since the Mornington Bush Nursing Hospital, the now-100-bed-acute hospital, opened to patients. “The building of The Bush was only made possible through donations and fundraising efforts by the local community ‌ now 80 years on, this incredible philanthropic spirit is still alive,â€? The Bays Healthcare Group chairman Adrian Wischer said. “It is a truly visionary and extremely generous act of support.â€? Stephen Taylor

Slater is featured on the Margaret Goding Maternity Wall, along with the Godings’ children and other babies born at The Bays. Jai was born at The Bush, as it was then known, in 1987.

The vehicle was impounded for 30 days at a cost of $1038. The driver will be charged on summons with a range of traffic offences.

Sex attacker sought POLICE are appealing for help to identify a man who sexually assaulted a teenage girl in Mt Eliza last year. The attack so traumatised the girl that she was unable to report it to police for more than a year. Just before midnight, Saturday 7 May, the 16-year-old left a party at Toorak College to walk home with a few friends along Old Mornington Rd. Her friends were collected and she continued walking alone. Soon after, she heard two men calling out from behind. She turned but could not see them in the dark. The girl, now 17, told police she was grabbed from behind and pulled into bushes between Williams Rd and TiTree Lane. She was then sexually assaulted by one man while the other kept a lookout. The men fled after the attack. “This was a senseless and vicious attack on an innocent young woman who, prior to the offence, had been enjoying a nice evening with friends,” Detective Senior Constable Laura Colley, of the Sexual Crimes Squad, said. “[She] was so emotionally traumatised as a result of the attack that she felt unable to report it to police until a year later.” Senior Constable Colley wants members of the public to contact police if they saw anything suspicious around midnight on 7 May 2016 in the

He was wearing khaki shorts, grey t-shirt and a dark coloured jumper or jacket with a hood, black socks and black running shoes. He had a deep voice with an Australian accent. The second man was Caucasian with possibly a darker skin tone than the other. He was wearing a dark coloured hoodie or jacket with a hood over his head and black running shoes.

Three-storey zones causing confusion By Mike Hast CONFUSION over which parts of the peninsula are subject to new rules allowing three-storey houses followed the first of three community meetings about state government planning changes. The shire has organised the meetings to explain the changes to residents. The first was held in Rosebud last Thursday night and was attended by an estimated 150-180 people. A second meeting, at Peninsula Community Theatre in Mornington, will be held tomorrow (6-8pm, Wednesday 26 July) with the third at Tyabb Community Hall at 6-8pm on Wednesday 2 August. The government’s changes will permit three-storey house of up to 11 metres high in at least 10 towns – Capel Sound (formerly Rosebud West), Rosebud, Dromana, Mt Martha, Mornington, Baxter, Somerville, Tyabb, Hastings and Bittern. Developments can occur with no notifications or rights of appeal. The shire stated earlier this month that the change to the General Residential Zone (GRZ) “presents a significant risk of inappropriate development on the peninsula”. It is encouraging residents to write to state planning minister Richard Wynn and planning bureaucrats to protest. Lobby group Peninsula Speaks is circulating a petition and hopes to collect

at least 10,000 signatures to put pressure on the government to exclude the peninsula from the metropolitan Melbourne planning scheme and strengthen the peninsula’s planning scheme. The shire is rushing to introduce interim Design and Development Overlay to reduce areas subject to three storeys but these will need to be approved by Mr Wynn, an unlikely event. Planning lobbyist Dr Alan Nelsen of McCrae said the shire had maps at the Rosebud meeting that showed areas that it said would not be affected by the height increase. “The shire thinks areas with existing overlays will not be affected but the planning minister has stated that the shire has three years to comply with the changes, which means the overlays effectively will be removed,” he said. “This means all General Residential Zones on the peninsula could end up with three-storey, 11-metre high houses.” After the meeting, shire mayor Cr Bev Colomb said the event demonstrated the passion and concern many residents feel about how these changes could significantly impact on the peninsula’s look and feel. “There was an overall agreement that people power is necessary to get the message across to the [planning] minister that the peninsula is not like metropolitan Melbourne and a one size fits all approach will not work for the peninsula,” she said. In other developments, councillors

last week agreed to add the state government’s VicSmart planning system to the council’s list of concerns (and topics at the three public meetings). Under the system, municipal planners can approve certain developments without reference to their councils, including building and works costing up to $1 million in industrial areas; $500,000 in commercial areas; and $500,000 in agricultural areas. The move was initiated by Cr David Gill who said he was concerned the government would further increase the number of planning applications that could be approved without input from councillors and residents. “This started out as a system for approving things like fences and carports but some planning specialists fear the government is aiming for up to 30 per cent of all planning to be decided by bureaucrats,” he said. Federal Flinders MP Greg Hunt has weighed in to the debate even though it is a state matter. Some would say he has a right to comment as his father Alan Hunt, as state planning minister, was largely responsible for introducing the peninsula’s unique planning scheme as well as Melbourne’s 12 green wedge zones in the 1970s. Greg Hunt said town planning was “a long-term process that needs careful consideration and foresight beyond the next 50-100 years”. “Short-term reactions to immediate planning issues can cause major problems for towns in the future.”

Seduction in gardens ROYAL Botanic Gardens Botanical Illustrators Group is holding an exhibition of botanical art depicting the relationship between plants and their pollinators next month. Native Seduction will be on display daily in the visitor centre of the Royal Botanic Gardens Cranbourne during August. Works by several of their tutors is included. A variety of mediums and techniques are used, including watercolour, coloured pencils, pen and ink and oil. All paintings are for sale, with commission from sales going to support the gardens. “Botanical art requires careful observation of the subject which is then depicted as a true representation of the plant and, in this case, the insect, bird or mammal that pollinates the plant,” coordinator Margaret Holloway said. An artist will be in residence each Sunday, 10am-2pm. Visitors are invited to get up close and ask questions while watching how the artist develops the painting. Also on Wednesdays 2 and 16 August artists

will hold informal talks, 11am and noon. The Botanical Illustration Group meets to paint at the Cranbourne Gardens on the first and third Wednesdays of the month, 10am-3pm.

Taking time out for trees NATIONAL Tree Day this weekend offers Mornington Peninsula residents the chance to “be inspired by nature and make a positive difference” to the environment. Mornington Peninsula Landcare Network, Mornington Toyota and Planet Ark are hosting an event at 368 Baldrys Rd, Main Ridge, Sunday 30 July. Tree planting will be held 10am-1pm. “National Tree Day is a fulfilling

opportunity to connect with our local community, to do something good for our environment and experience the many benefits that come from spending time in nature,” Landcare facilitator Jacqui Salter said. Planet Ark’s Debbie Agnew said: “Our fast-paced, screen-driven lifestyle means children are losing touch with nature, and missing out on developing a life-long connection to nature.”

NEWS DESK Tiny champs: Ruddy turnstones weigh just 115 grams but are champion distance flyers, travelling between the Mornington Peninsula and Arctic Circle each year. Pictures: Supplied

Climate change threat to repeat summer visitors Keith Platt keith@mpnews.com.au THEY may be small and lightweight, but ruddy turnstones are able to repeatedly survive their annual return trip from Flinders on the Mornington Peninsula to their nesting grounds close to the Arctic Circle.

One bird recently recorded by scientists had been tagged 15 years ago at Flinders. It had flown countless kilometres between the two destinations. Known only by the identification number (05224506) and an orange “flag”, the male ruddy turnstone was banded as a three-year-old at West

Head, Flinders, in September 2002. He was photographed and identified in Japan on 29 April this year while heading north to breeding grounds in Siberia. “He’s one of our ruddy turnstones and has been travelling back and forth from Flinders to the Siberian breeding grounds for 18 years,” Penny Johns

of the Victorian Wader Study Group said. The picture taken by Morioka Masayoshi at Kamehama-cho, Shimonoseki-shi, Japan, is more than 8100 kilometres from Flinders. The information has been added to shorebird research studies of the East Asian-Australasian Flyway, a migratory route that stretches eastwards from the Taimyr Peninsula in Russia to Alaska in the northern hemisphere and includes Australia and New Zealand in the southern hemisphere. Ruddy turnstones weigh about 115 grams and are listed by Birdlife Australia as being “vulnerable” in Victoria but “secure” in all other states and territories. It is one of the world’s most northerly breeding shorebirds and flies across the Pacific between Australia and Siberia. Birdlife Australia says the Arctic and Australia “are two key places where climate change is a major cause for concern”. Since banding of ruddy turnstones began at Flinders in the summer of 1997, their numbers have decreased from 150 to about 30. Ms Johns said the wader study group gathered “comprehensive data on waders and terns throughout Victoria”. “This forms a factual base for

conservation considerations, to be a source of information for a wider audience and to be a major contribution to the East-Asian Australasian Flyway and worldwide knowledge of waders and terns,” she said. The group also worked in Tasmania, on King Island, and in South Australia. “We first banded ruddy turnstones at Flinders in 1997. In 2007 we attached a geo-locator to a turnstone at Flinders. The species was chosen because they are very site faithful and we need to re-catch them to remove and download the information from the geo-locator.” When browsing along beaches at Flinders, ruddy turnstones epitomise the saying of leaving no stone unturned as well as picking among seaweed in search of insects, crustaceans, molluscs and spiders. They feed day and night and will also add eggs and carrion (dead things) to their diet. Their nests on small rocky islands and shorelines consist of leaves places in a shallow depression, often next to a rock or bush.

It’s no fluke, Bass Strait is whale trail Keith Platt keith@mpnews.com.au THE sighting and identification of the 50th different humpback whale in Bass Strait has given strength to the theory that the waterway is a “whale corridor”. “The milestone could not have come at a better time,” said Dolphin Research Institute project coordinator David Donnelly. “We have been documenting large whale movements in the Port Phillip and Western Port region since 2001, but have only recently started cataloguing humpback whale flukes as part of the national humpback whale fluke collective.” The humpback known as VIC_0050 was photographed by Mr Donnelly’s niece, Alana Loschenkohl, as it lifted its fluke (tail) above the water off Kilcunda on 8 July. The whales are identified by the unique black and white patterning found on the underside of their fluke. Peta Beeman, of Southern Cross University Lismore, confirmed a match for VIC_0050 with a sighting off Byron Bay, New South Wales in 2014. “This is extremely exciting and very rewarding for the Two Bays Whale Project team [the DRI and Phillip Island-based Wildlife Coast Cruises] as it’s our first interstate re-sight,” Ms Beeman said. Mr Donnelly said confirmation of a winter migration whale corridor in Bass Strait would make “greater protection” for humpbacks possible.

“This understanding is critical to conservation.” He said up to 26,000 humpback whales will make the northerly migration this year along Australia’s east coast to the calving grounds, “a far cry from the post whaling population estimate of around 200”. “Little is known about the migration of humpback whales along Victoria’s south coast but with interest growing and the ongoing work of the Two Bays Whale Project, it is hoped that we may soon be able to unlock some of the secrets of these magnificent winter visitors,” Mr Donnelly said. The best places near Port Phillip or Western Port to see migrating whales from land are Barwon Bluff, Port Phillip Heads, Cape Schanck, The Nobbies, Pyramid Rock and Cape Woolamai on Phillip Island and along the Bass Coast. Winter Whale Cruises leave from Cowes, Phillip Island. Regulations ban boats from approaching within 200 metres of a whale (jet skis 300m) and aircraft 500m height (including drones). For details about the Two Bays Project or to report whale sightings go to www.dolphinresearch.org.au Telling tails: Alana Loschenkohl managed to snap an image of VIC_0050 as it lifted its unique fluke (tail) above the water off Kilcunda on 8 July while on a whale spotting cruise with Wildlife Coast Cruises. “It was quite amazing seeing the whales so close to the boat, playing with dolphins and seals,” she said. “I didn’t really know that my photo would be so important, but I’m happy it is.” Pictures: David Donnelly

Spare a thought for police who daily face danger Philippe de Kraan, of Mornington, is upset with the way the police treated him while trying to chase down a man allegedly armed with a firearm who had been involved in a domestic violence incident, who drove dangerously, and who threatened to ram his car through the doors of the Mornington police station. (“‘Overkill’ claim as police jump man outside his home” The News 11/7/17). I’m not sure how Mr de Kraan (who came out of his house at 1.30am wearing facial bandages during this intense police operation taking place in his street) expected the police to act? Yes, he told the police that he lived there, but anyone could have said that, including the violent offender that the police were pursuing in the middle of the night. Please Mr de Kraan, spare a thought for the men and women of our police force who put their lives on the line each and every day in order to protect you and your community. Rather than bad mouthing the actions of the police, or filing official complaints against the police officers, please take a moment and put yourself in the their situation. Policing is and has become an ever more dangerous job with criminals running amuck in our community, and when firearms are involved, it could quickly turn deadly. So instead of complaining about your treatment, take a moment and thank the brave men and women who showed up in the middle of the night to try and apprehend an out of control offender who could have done great damage to you, your neighbours, and to these police officers. We are too quick to condemn and complain, when we should be grateful and thankful that our police men and women are there when needed and are willing to risk their lives to protect ours. I, for one, truly appreciate their courageous efforts on our behalf. Christine Fry, Blairgowrie

Use pier breakwater Further to your article (“Push for dredging not seawall at Portsea” The News 11/7/2017) regarding sand loss at the Portsea front beach, the obvious response is that this is what happens when humans alter natural systems. Just like additional CO2 in the atmosphere is causing anthropogenic climate change, increasing the channel depth at Port Phillip Heads has increased transient water mass causing sand erosion and distribution in the bay. While there has been large sand loss and devastating erosion all along the north western end of Point Nepean and the Portsea front beach, sand has been deposited further up the bay creating astonishing new stretches of beach at low tide from Rye to Dromana. The outlet at Chinamans Creek is often blocked and the Tootgarook boat ramp needs annual dredging. Increased wave energy and sand has to be absorbed and deposited somewhere and we are now seeing the negative effects of our desire to increase shipping so we can import more “stuff”. Colin Watson, Nepean Ratepayers Association president, has been trying to get the problem fixed but it appears the Department of Environment, Land, Water and Planning is tackling the issue by building a rock wall along the stretch of coastline where the sandy Portsea front beach once was. A breakwater was deemed too expensive at nearly $30 million, so the solution is to sacrifice the once loved beach for more imported stuff. Surely if a breakwater would help fix the beach you would turn the adjacent Portsea pier into a breakwater. This would not change the structural footprint of the area, would help protect the large eastern front beach, create marine habitat and be far more cost effective than other options. The continued altering of our natural systems for economic advancement has to be viewed far more sensitively. George Russell, Blairgowrie

Golfers need range I really enjoyed reading in [Mornington Peninsula Shire’s] Peninsula Wide newsletter about Mt Martha Golf Course ( I often play there ) and how the peninsula is Australia’s number one golf

destination. How about the council putting money aside to build a modern multilayer golfing range to replace the driving range that we had [at Civic Reserve, Mornington] and where now is built a magnificent sports complex? Local golfers have no driving range available near Mornington, with the Rosebud range too far to travel to. Golfing tourists I have played with cannot understand that with the popularity of the game on the peninsula, that we have no modern driving range available. All other sports are well supported by council with money and facilities, it’s about time golfers were giving the same consideration. Peter Young, Mt Martha

Saving animals I was pleased to read that Mornington [Peninsula Shire] Council is upgrading the pound and its animal management processes (“Shire, protesters at odds over pound” The News 18/7/17). That was until I heard that they had killed 66 pets in the first quarter of this year. Killing that number of pets in three months does not show a commitment towards the animals of our shire. There are two ways at looking at the kill rate of any pound – you can work the statistics so you have something to celebrate – maybe 66 dead pets less than the same period last year, or as a percentage is better than last quarter. But while councillors are playing games with numbers the animals themselves will never be their main priority. The only way to improve the outcome for every pet in our shire is if councillors believe that the only acceptable euthanasia rate for our pound is zero. Of course, there will be one or two mortally injured animals that can’t be saved, but even the loss of these should be considered a failure. There should be a standing agenda item at every council meeting to review the animals killed each month and the question asked for each should be “could it have been prevented”. The term “unsuitable for adoption” is never good enough. It’s easy not to kill pets in pounds – many do it. Small things like comprehensive marketing campaigns in different media, such as foster care programs, open days, reduced prices when inundated with pets. One experienced member of staff could handle it easily. It may even be more cost effective than paying a vet to put them to sleep and disposing of their bodies. Unless we tell our councillors we won’t accept excuses – that is all we will ever get. Mel Ellis, Mornington

Refugee solution Unlike Denise Hassett of Mt Martha (“Hope for Gillard” Letters 11/7/17)), I am not very pleased that Julia Gillard has been appointed chair of beyondblue. Opening up Manus Island and Nauru as detention centres for people who were legitimately trying to get here for Australia’s protection because they were refugees, was creating a completely predictable mental health catastrophe that is still with us, or with them, four years later. And she still defends her actions. The sadists who have locked up refugees for the past 30 years tell us that they are trying to discourage people from taking the “dangerous trip” in the proverbial “leaky boats”. I have never heard a journalist ask why we do not simply fly people who have refugee status straight from Indonesia (or Malaysia) to here. They have to pay for boat travel because there is no alternative. No more crocodile tears, please, about leaky boats and dangerous journeys. Give them safe travel to Australia. How is it possible that Gillard is appointed chair of beyondblue? In no other country could this abomination take place. And in no other country could someone like Amanda Vanstone (remember the innocent people who were locked up, remember Vivian Alvarez-Solon, remember Cornelia Rau), have her own show on national radio. And I do not doubt that [former prime

Main St attraction FORMER Mornington chamber of commerce president Scott Crowe thinks the proliferation of bird droppings around trees in Main St, Mornington may be the town’s next major attraction. “Despite requests, [Mornington Peninsula minister] John Howard, will one day receive a state funeral. We need a Human Rights Act and to close the camps now. Stephen Langford, Paddington, NSW

Fair treatment For the past four years our successive governments have chosen to send people seeking safety and travelling to Australia by boat, to offshore detention centres. These women, men, children, families, single men and unaccompanied minors have lived in limbo for four years without knowing what their future will be. They have not even been given the respect of being assessed properly. Their environment has been a prison and harsh. Published reports have all advised governments about the detrimental effects of long term detention, particularly on children, and the abuse that occurs in the centres. There are, as far as we know, still more than 160 children on Nauru. No appropriate and safe options have been offered to these refugees. Manus is to be closed in October. Nauru’s service provider is to finish up at the end of the year. The US deal is not expected to include all on Manus. So what safe and reasonable option is our government going to offer these people? Well attended vigils held on 19 July in Mornington and Hastings and all around Australia reflect the large numbers of concerned Australians who want our government to bring these refugees to Australia, to assess their refugee claims fairly and, if found eligible, allow them to settle here and become participate in our society. Ann Renkin, Shoreham, Grandmothers Against the Detention of Refugee Children

Centre’s ups ‘n’ downs I am sure I write for many elderly people and small businesses in the Mornington Village shopping centre in Main St, Mornington. The up escalator was broken for a week and also other times over the past few months - never the down though. Consequently, a ramp has to be used to access both floors causing difficulty for many people and a loss of trade. To add insult to injury the Commonwealth Bank has removed its ATM which has been there for many years. The financial loss to some is considerable and we do not need to have any more shops closing in Mornington. It is time for the owners of the complex to fix the problem. Molly Wexler, Mornington

Balance required This sad lament is unfortunately to support the fact that the Royal Commission into Family Violence has let us down despite the endless millions of dollars thrown at it. The real victims of the whole issue of domestic violence are children and it has not been broached from that perspective.

Shire] council leaves broken tree surrounds and bird poo along Main St. Could this become a new tourist attraction.” The trees are particularly popular overnight as the flocking birds appear to prefer well lit surroundings.

The recommendations and findings are deeply divisive in that men are not factored into the equation. They were not mentioned in the terms of reference to the governor, nor in subsequent discussions and the chair Marcia Neave stated categorically that it is irrelevant that men be considered as victims of domestic violence. From the findings and recommendations of the commission there are eight pages only addressing the plight of men and I cannot see where they have been acted upon. The professor of statistics at Melbourne University’s school of business Professor Chris Lloyd shows where the statistics driving the matter are completely flawed. Surely we must take an enlightened appropriate approach to the whole issue, first that the victims of internecine disputes are children? That entitlement and domestic violence are not gender specific. But still the condemnation of all men goes on and on and I find the people most concerned are women themselves, especially those who do wonderful social work while men, the collateral damage, become reclusive and become statistics. Male refuges would be a marvellous innovation as so many men are thrown out of their homes and all those things near and dear have been taken from them so often by frivolous or fallacious intervention orders. You will find these men on any night sleeping in their cars at our beaches. The full weight of the law and other help should be delivered to those who are recidivists or pathologically violent including both genders. Tony Nicholl, Seaford

Speaking of which So as not to disappoint Peter Damyon (“Letters reader” Letters 18/7/17), here’s a letter from at least one leftie from Rosebud. Peter, mate, we have in this fine country what is called freedom of expression. That’s to say that if someone has some sort of issue about something they are able to express an opinion without your imprimatur or anybody else’s for that matter. That is much the same regarding your tirade. It’s a bit sexist of you Peter to suggest that a housewife has to be frustrated to write something to the letters page. The Greens are a political body and therefore entitled to an opinion regarding the environment. Mornington is not the only area that contains intelligent voices and, what have you got against dog haters? Some have legitimate reasons for disliking dogs. I can assure you Peter, I don’t lay awake at night thinking about my next letter, I simply open the pages of this grand local newspaper and if I see some irrelevant, inane statement I will comment. If you don’t like the statements that you read Peter, as they say in the classics, stiff. Perhaps you would be more at home if you were the one to move. Preferably to a country where freedom of expression is not permitted. John Cain, McCrae

Library’s open day for Islam’s main text THE book central Islam, the Quran (or Koran), was the main feature of a display and discussion at Frankston Library earlier this month. The aim of the exhibition by the Langwarrin chapter of the Ahmadiyya Muslim Community Victoria was to introduce Islam “and to help dispel any misconception and misunderstanding about the Islamic faith and the Quran”, said Soofi Aziz, secretary external affairs Langwarrin Jamaat (a conservative political organisation). The Saturday 8 July display included copies of the Quran in several languages, Islamic literature and banners on topics in the Quran. “Some of the information on display included women’s rights, interfaith dialogue, real concept of jihad, social justice and world peace,” Mr Aziz said. “Visitors to the library could attend an information session on the basic teachings of Islam led by Langwarrinbased imam and minister of religion of the Ahmadiyya Muslim community, Imam Syed Wadood Janud. Imam Janud answered many questions that residents had about Islam.” Mr Aziz said the visitors “left the exhibition after gaining firsthand knowledge and understanding about the true teachings of Islam as taught by the Quran and practiced by local Muslims”.

Safety first as Eagle passengers ‘rescued’ PASSENGERS will be brought to the ground on ropes and harnesses when the gondolas of the Arthurs Seat Eagle are brought to a halt on Saturday. But rather than facing a real emergency, the “passengers” will be volunteers helping with a rescue training exercise. “The static evacuation means volunteers will be evacuated from the gondolas at height and brought safely down to the ground with the use of harnesses and specialist rope rescue equipment,” marketing coordinator Jasmine Shaw said. “Although the chances of a real life evacuation ever being needed are extremely slim, being prepared for all situations is paramount to the team at the Eagle.” Ms Shaw said members of the

public should not panic “if they see people being rescued from the gondolas on [Saturday 29 July]”. “It is happening in a controlled environment and being guided by highly trained personnel. The exercise

includes Arthurs Seat Eagle staff, Victoria Police and both ground and aerial units of the CFA and MFB. “The rescue crews will be practising advanced aerial rescue techniques using the latest equipment developed

in Switzerland.” Ms Shaw said the exercise would involve about 40 people “displaying just some of the strategies and techniques that are being implemented to ensure that the Eagle experience is

enjoyable and safe for all that come to fly”. The training will coincide with annual maintenance during which the Eagle is closed The Eagle replaced the former open-seat chairlift, which was built in 1960 but closed for good on 16 May 2006 after a cable malfunction stranded people. It was the fourth incident since January 2003 when a pylon supporting cables collapsed, putting 18 people in hospital and stranding dozens more for up to six hours. The ride was again closed in January 2004 with minor problems. In March 2004, an elderly woman had her legs crushed when the chair she was in slid down the cable and crashed into the chair in front. Keith Platt

It’s the Muriel Cooper show circa 2017 By Mike Hast FOR long-time radio listeners, it will be deja vu on the Mornington Peninsula’s community radio station RPP-FM next month when they hear the dulcet tones of Muriel Cooper. Muriel Cooper? I know that name, many will think. Ms Cooper was top of talk radio 26 years ago when her program on 3AW went to number one in the ratings for prime time shows. Soon after, she walked away from radio and changed careers; went to university and studied behavioural science and health psychology. Ms Cooper opened a psychology practice in Hawthorn East in 1998. “I’d always been interested in psychology and mental health,” she told The News late last week. “I’d often interview people from these fields on my show including experts from universities and psychiatrists.” Muriel Cooper hails from WA wheat town Katanning, 277km southeast of Perth. Her first job was as a cadet journalist on the Great Southern Herald where she also read news on the local radio station. She moved east to further her career and for more than 20 years worked at Radio Australia, 3LO (now 774 ABC Melbourne) and 3AW including hosting her own talk show for a decade from 1981. The Muriel Cooper Show was a big deal in Melbourne. It was what was then called a “magazine” radio show – a little bit of everything from hard

news to showbiz interviews. By 1991 Ms Cooper had had enough and resigned to pursue a long-held dream – a career as a psychologist. “It was good to leave on my terms and at the top,” she said. A couple of years ago, Ms Cooper was sitting in the office of her consultancy The Talking Room in Hawthorn East waiting for a client and lamenting the noise and smell of incessant traffic. Multi-storey apartment blocks were springing up like mushrooms; she craved clean air, a “nicer” life and “space”. “The city is too crowded; too much traffic,” she said. Husband Russell said he’d been thinking the same thing. They started looking for a new home – perhaps Tasmania, perhaps the Mornington Peninsula. The couple bought a house in Mornington and recently celebrated their first year in the town. “We walk the dog, ride our bikes and love going to cafes, wineries and restaurants. We joined Mornington Bowling Club.” Ms Cooper didn’t listen to talk radio for many years after 3AW but started tuning in to RPP-FM after moving to Mornington. She was pleased by the quality of many RPP programs. “Community radio is the way to go: you’re part of the community; it’s the future of radio. Nowadays you get your music from streaming services Spotify and Pandora.” Through an old radio friend, Gary Turner of Mt Eliza, who presents a

morning show on RPP two days a week, Ms Cooper met station manager Brendon Telfer and the pair talked about her presenting a show. She started sketching out a few ideas. It would be the Muriel Cooper Show circa 2017. “The show will be a nice, breezy talk show but we’ll cover some newsy topics. I’ll again be voicing some strong opinions. We’ll have ‘What’s the issue?’. Should a seawall be built at Portsea? Does the peninsula want three-storey houses?” Ms Cooper is obviously staying abreast of the peninsula’s hot topics. “Other segment ideas include ‘Coastal home improvement’ for decorators and renovators; ‘Peninsula creatives’ – interviews with artists; ‘The dirt on gardening’; ‘Animalia’ – pets, farm animals and racehorses; and ‘The Practical Cook’ – ordinary cooking.” The presenter as psychologist will get a run in a segment provisionally entitled ‘Getting On’. “It will be about relationships – parenting, job interviews, marriages and partnerships including legal aspects.” The 17-year-old Katanning journo who was dobbed in to read radio news because she was too young to join the others at the pub, is about to come full circle – radio presenter, psychologist, and now radio presenter and psychologist.  Muriel Cooper makes her radio debut on Wednesday 9 August, 9-11am, on RPP-FM, 98.7, and streaming online at: rppfm.com.au

100 YEARS AGO THIS WEEK...

Australians “not uncivilized” says YMCA’s military secretary Compiled by Cameron McCullough “IN some undefined way a good many people here seem to think an Australian is an uncivilised sort of being, and get a pleasant surprise when they find out what a wrong impression they have had of our boys.” Thus writes from France Jas. R. Falconer, military secretary of the Y.M.C.A. “I have been able” he continues, “to get in touch with a large number of the boys, and I never lose an opportunity of doing all I possibly can to help them. “What has struck visitors to this hut has been the fervent attitude of the men while we are having family prayers in the evening. “We who work continually among them know the stirling worth of the boys from Down Under, and I deem it an honor to be able to do anything for them. “During the month we have had rather warm weather, and that has helped us all to be cheerful. I expect to be moving forward to the firing line at any moment now, and I look forward with great pleasure to getting among the boys in the trenches. I keep splendid and fit for anything.” *** DONATIONS have been received by the secretary of the “Wattle” Club of £1 1s from Mr Pearson, and 10s from Mr Mann. *** THE members of the Moorooduc Progress Association intend holding a plain and fancy dress ball in aid of the ball funds on Thursday evening, 30th August. *** FOR Chronic Chest Complaints,

Woods’ Great Peppermint Cure. 1s 6d. *** A JUMBLE Fair will be held at Somerville on Saturday afternoon and evening, in aid of the funds of the local Red Cross Society, when a varied program of amusement will be given. *** MESSRS Brody and Mason will hold their usual fortnightly sale of produce, &c., at their mart, Bay street, on Wednesday next, at which some very

fine W. L. pullets will be offered. *** MESSRS Alex Scott and Co. Pty. Ltd. will hold a clearing sale on Monday afternoon at Somerville, on account of Mr S. Day, who is leaving the district, consisting of sheep, pigs, farm implements, and household furniture, and on account of other owners, horses, cattle, farm implements and sundries. *** BEV F. Delbride; B A. (Sandring-

ham), will preach at the Frankston Methodist Church on Sunday morning next, and Mr R. T. Barnes (Balaclava) in the evening. Mr Delbridge will also speak on “Australasian Foreign Missions” in the church on Tuesday evening next. Meeting begins at 8 o’clock. *** WE would like to draw attention to Mr A. W. Taylor’s advertisement in another column. He is holding an auction sale on Saturday, August 4th, of Plant, Cars, Good will, and Tools, at his garage, corner of Melbourne Road and Wells Street. We understand that this sale is being held in order to free Mr Taylor for service with the A I.F. Anyone interested in oils, grease, benzine, motor and cycle accessories, or wanting to buy a car, should make a point of attending. *** FAREWELL TO CPL C. WILSON The Church was filled on Saturday evening last when a farewell social was tendered to Cp Wilson. Mr Marshall occupied the chair. An apology was received from Mr W. M. Green, President of the Progress Association owing to the inclement weather and a bad cold. Mr Marshall in his usual style spoke of the great sacrifice the guest of the evening was making in leaving a wife and family to answer to call of his country and uphold the honor of the British Race. Mr Dicker spoke on behalf of the Progress Association eulogising Cpl Wilson for the stand he had taken and wished him God speed and a safe

return. A number of items were given by the following–Misses Vines and Marshall, and Messrs Cowan, Harley and Scott, which were greatly appreciated. Mr Marshall then presented Cpl Wilson with a fountain pen and trusted it would be of some service to him while away. Cpl Wilson briefly responded, after which tea and cakes were served by the ladies in their usual efficient style. *** TO Our Subscribers. OWING to the abnormal rise in the price of paper since the War we are compelled to raise the price of the STANDARD, and on and after 4th August, 1917, the price for single copy will be 3d; per quarter 3s. *** WASHED out of Boathouse, 3 pieces of wood, parts of boat. 2 painted green, 1 stone color.

THE MEANING OF EXISTENCE... AND OTHER SHORT STORIES

The Dorito Chip of Destiny By Stuart McCullough I LIKE that it’s ambiguous. That it can mean anything and everything; that it’s significance can be shaped to suit the circumstances. Sometimes I claim it’s a dog bite, on other occasions that it’s a souvenir from a shark attack. My brother simply refers to it as ‘the Dorito’ on account of its shape. But whatever story you attach to it, there’s no getting around the fact that there’s a big, ugly scar on my forearm. It changes colour. Kind of like a mood ring. Sometimes the scar tissue is a deep, voluminous purple. On cold days, especially, it’s a royal puce. Other times it has a distinctly pinkish hue. I’d like to think that it reads my thoughts and alters its shade accordingly, but I’ll concede that it probably says more about the state of the air conditioning than it does my state of mind. I’m told that, over time, it’ll become less pronounced but, for the time being, there are days when it all but glows. There wasn’t always a scar. Before the scar there was a dot. Or, to be more precise, a mole. The term ‘mole’ is appropriate – and not just in a dermatological sense. It was, so I was to learn, secretly undermining me even as it enjoyed the hospitality of my forearm. Ingrate. I’d ignored it because the big brown dot had been around for ages and wasn’t really any different to the assorted freckles and spots I’d collected. That said, if I’m being completely honest, there was a point when it started to change. In particular, I could swear it was getting bigger. As I do with so many things, I ignored

PAGE 32

it in the belief that it would take care of itself. I went to a Saturday morning exercise class. Ostensibly, this was to build some upper body strength but it was the type of activity in which you spend an hour doing all kinds of stretches and lunges and discover how little balance you have. It was common for

Western Port News 25 July 2017

me to fall over, something I routinely blamed on the appalling music. After class, one of the other participants came running over. At first I thought she was going to compliment me on my technique when toppling over. Instead, she pointed to the big brown dot and urged me to have someone look at it.

When a stranger gives you unsolicited advice, you can respond in one of two ways. One of which is to be offended. There’s something about an intervention that can put you off. In defending yourself, you often reject the advice out of hand. The other is to accept things in the spirit in which they’re offered. I was somewhat encouraged when the person revealed that she was, in fact, a doctor. The following expressions are th things you’d prefer not to hear come ou out of the mouth of a general practiti tioner: ‘wow’, ‘oh’ and ‘sweet mercy’. My doctor used all of these while inspecting my skin and was mightily concerned about the big brown dot. Sitting on the edge of the examination table, I could only think of how lucky I was that I’d turned up to exercise class. When it comes to testing for melanoma, there’s something of an irony. To test it, they need to cut the sucker out. In many respects, this seems a lot like knocking down your house to check for termites, but I didn’t feel I was in a position to quibble. There’s no haggling when it comes to these things. None at all. If there’s something I’ve learned, it’s that every circumstance demands it’s own pamphlet. When the results come through, I was told that one of moles was harmless, albeit ugly, although I can’t help but note that there’s no offer to put it back. The big brown dot, however, was a melanoma. This means that removing it was a very good thing. It also means that I get a booklet with lots of information

on melanoma. It even has space for me to make notes, but instead I drew a picture of a small bird. I’m not sure why. And even though they’ve already cut the thing out, the treatment for a melanoma of this particular size, is to remove more skin by performing a ‘wide excision’. Despite the fact that we’re removing skin from my forearm, I still have to wear the buttock-exposing surgical gown. In a word it feels… breezy. I’m also beginning to regret catching the train to the hospital. Once there, I have my first general anesthetic in about twenty years but it all goes well and, before long, I’m in recovery with a bandage so impressive that Boris Karloff would weep with envy. They test the skin and it gets the ‘all clear’, but no one offers to return it. Presumably they’ll sell it on E-bay. For now, I have three-monthly checkups. These involve lying on a table in the almost altogether while someone looks over my skin with a magnifying glass. At the last appointment, the doctor described my skin as a ‘full time job’, which I’ve decided to take as a compliment. At some point along the way, all of us will hear the word ‘cancer’. I think of it whenever I see the Dorito-shaped scar on my forearm. Mostly, though, I feel lucky. Lucky because a stranger took a chance to give me unsolicited advice. Lucky that it was just in time. Lucky that there was something I could do about it. Lucky, most of all, in spite of myself. stuart@stuartmccullough.com


21 JULY – 17 SEPTEMBER 2017

LEADING LADIES OF YESTERDAY, TODAY AND TOMORROW Constance Stokes (1906-1991) is one of the leading artists of her generation. She travelled and studied in London and Paris, and in 1953 exhibited at the Royal Academy in London alongside Arthur Boyd, Russell Drysdale and Sidney Nolan. This exhibition is the most expansive survey undertaken of this important artist, featuring over 35 key paintings and drawings, covering the breadth of Stokes’s 60 year artistic practice. Never before seen archival material from the artist’s estate, including journals, sketchbooks, letters, photographs and drawings will be showcased, providing a fascinating insight into her little known life and exceptional artistic practice. In 1929 Constance won the Travelling Scholarship at the National Gallery School, Melbourne, to study for two years at the Royal Academy in London. During her time abroad, Constance spent a period studying under the French Cubist artist André Lhote in Paris and visited the major galleries in Europe. Her early career is shaped through her struggle to be an artist alongside expectations of marriage and family life. Further opportunities abroad and the consolidation of her classical painting style were a feature of Stokes’s mid-career. In 1953 she was one of 12 Australian artists, and only one of two women artists, included in an exhibition at Burlington Galleries, London, alongside Arthur Boyd, William Dobell, Russell Drysdale, Lloyd Rees, Donald Friend, and Sidney Nolan.

Stokes had a late career flourish in her 70s, embedding a Matisse-inspired vibrancy and freedom of form and colour in some of the strongest work she produced. MORNINGTON PENINSULA REGIONAL GALLERY. Exhibition dates: 21 July – 17 September. Location: Civic Reserve, Dunns Road, Mornington. Gallery Hours: Tuesday– Sunday 10am–5pm. Exhibition admission fees: $4 adults / $2 concession. 5950 1580. www.mprg.mornpen.vic.gov.au

The Mornington Peninsula Shire is aware of concerns regarding the section of Patricia Avenue between Foam Avenue and Spray Point in Blairgowrie (â&#x20AC;&#x153;the Roadâ&#x20AC;?).

Pythons feel the squeeze after two losses PENINSULA LEAGUE

By Toe Punt PINES has lost its second game in succession after going down to Mt Eliza in a scrappy affair on Saturday at Emil Madsen Reserve. Bad kicking at goal was the story of the day, the Pythons booting 3.9 in the second quarter while Mt Eliza responded with 1.8 in the third quarter. The total ratio for the day was 14.31. The visitors, who have a historical bad record against Mt Eliza, led by 15 points going into the final quarter. However, Mt Eliza, through the likes of youngsters Lachy Young in his third game and Finlay Bayne and Tom Small in their second games were able to boot four goals to one in the final term to win 7.17 (59) to 7.14 (56). Matt Lillie was also back in the seniors after a lengthy spell. Sam Gill was back also, as was Robbie Turnball, Jimmy Freeman and James Anwyl – all missing against Frankston YCW. However, the likes of Jay Neratzoglou, Dave Barton, Grant Goodall and Shaun Knott didn’t play, so the Redlegs just can’t get their best on the park at once. The glaring omission for Pines was Aaron Edwards. He has missed the past two games and the Pythons have lost both matches. Is it a case of no Edwards, no Pines? Time is going to tell. Langwarrin put a month of heart-

ache behind them and led all afternoon to win its first game of the season on Saturday against Chelsea. It was good reward for the playing group, who have stuck fat, while coach Brad Dredge is widely respected by his fellow coaches and has been thrown the toughest job in the business. There has been enormous rumour and innuendo surrounding the club in

the past couple of weeks especially, including the club being in financial crisis, however the players were able to put all that behind them and win against the odds. Chelsea challenged in the final term, however Langwarrin was able to holdon and win 8.12 (60) to 6.12 (48). Mitch Cuthbert was outstanding for the Kangas with a couple of goals, Gerard Brown led from the front as

he has all season and Kye Whitford played his best game. Seaford regained a bit of its mojo on Saturday and went within a kick of upsetting Frankston YCW is a low scoring match. Both sides jumped out of the blocks and it was four goals to three at quarter time, however, scoring dried up with the Stonecats kicking only three more goals for the game and Seaford boot-

ing four. The final score was 7.8 (50) to 7.4 (46). Byron Barry and Matty LaFontaine were significant in the win for the Stonecats while Brad Doyle and Tommy Shaw were excellent for the Tigers. A big game this weekend between Seaford and Mt Eliza. RPP FM will be there to bring the match live on 98.7FM. Edithvale-Aspendale made it three wins on the trot with an emphatic victory against Karingal. The Eagles restricted Karingal to just three goals for the game, winning 9.9 (63) to 3.7 (25). Bonbeach coach Steve Hughes said on the RPP Footy Show on Saturday morning that he believed the Eagles were the ‘smokies’ this season. “I believe they have one of the best forward groups in the competition and they have great pace. They’ll be very dangerous if they make the finals,” Hughes said. Meanwhile, Hughes’ team, Bonbeach, had a great 10.12 (72) to 5.11 (41) victory against Mornington. The stronger bodies of the Sharks was the key difference after quarter time, which saw the visitors boot seven goals to two. Bonbeach’s best players Dylan Jones and Shane McDonald were excellent, while Mark Tyrell and Greg Vassallo were also outstanding.

Stage is set for a Red Hill ripper NEPEAN LEAGUE By Toe Punt THE stage has been set for one of the games of the season this Saturday at the Red Hill Showgrounds when the home side hosts Dromana for a place in the 2017 Nepean Division finals. There are just four home and away matches remaining for the season but there is no bigger one for the Hillmen and Tigers. Going in, there are four points and one and a half percent between the teams. Dromana has the additional game up its sleeve and the Hillmen have the slightly better percentage (116 to 114.8). In the matches to follow, Dromana plays Somerville, Pearcedale and Rye. Red Hill plays Devon Meadows, Crib Point and Tyabb. Now, the draw looks a little easier for the Hillmen, however, they simply must win this week to be any chance of playing finals. Two games out with three games remaining just doesn’t work for them. This week, both sides are coming off solid performances. Dromana has pushed both Frankston Bombers and Sorrento in successive weeks, both after giving up large quarter time leads. Red Hill’s form hasn’t been as consistent. However, its performance against Somerville on Saturday was terrific. The Hillmen led by four points at halftime but took total control in the second half, booting eight goals to three to win 13.12 (90) to 7.11 (53). Chris Irving was swung forward in the second half and again proved a handful, booting four goals, while Jake

PAGE 36

Mold was the best player on the ground with a couple of goals also. Matt Mitchell had a tagging role and carried it out sensationally. Tom Roberts in his second senior game was superb for the Eagles. He was one of five Under 19s who took to the field for Somerville on Saturday and one of 10 Under 19s to make their debut in 2017. Despite missing the 2017 finals, it’s hard not to think that the Eagles did not take a step forward this season. Of course it lost of course Jedd Sutton with a shattered knee cap and Bryce Kellerman with a broken leg last week, however, word is that coach Bevan Malloy has his side in great shape both on and off the field for the future. Not surprising at all. Dromana gave Sorrento a 40 point head start and only lost by eight points, 11.9 (75) to 10.7 (67). The margin was 35 points at three quarter time but the Tigers booted five goals to one in the last to get within a sniff. The more impressive thing for Dromana was the fact that they restricted the Sharks to 11 goals, something no club has been able to do this season. They did it without Sam Fowler and Ryan Smyth, two important players. They’ll need them both this week against Red Hill. Hastings conceded the first four goals against Frankston Bombers, trailed by 24 points at quarter time and lost by four points. If not for a dip in concentration for five minutes in the last quarter, Hastings would have won. The Bombers were pretty much at full strength while the Blues went in without Brendan Dunne, Brouwer, Green, Luke Smith and Luke Hewitt. Smith

Western Port News 25 July 2017

and Hewitt won’t play again this season. Dunne is unlikely for the remainder of the home and away series. Corey Buchan and Ryan MarksLogan were the difference between the sides for the Bombers, along with Alex Harnett through the middle. Shaun Foster and Matt Clifford were outstanding for the Blues and Steven Robb played one of his best games for the season. Tyabb was celebrating hard on Saturday night after winning its first game for the season. In a ding-dong battle with Devon Meadows, the Yabbies came home strong and booted three goals to four behinds in the last quarter to win 10.6 (66) to 8.11 (59). The Yabbies form in recent weeks has proven to be extremely competitive. It had its chances against Pearcedale and was superb against Rosebud. It was a well deserved win for the club, which has stuck fat with one another and continued to improve throughout the season. There’s no reason to think the Yabbies can’t continue to improve. Rosebud was able to shake off Rye in the final quarter, booting eight goals to one to win 17.15 (117) to 9.5 (59). The Buds had 11 goal kickers while Jack Jarman and Greg Bentley were outstanding. Pearcedale got the jump on Crib Point in the opening quarter of their match and were able to sustain a match winning victory throughout, winning 13.12 (90) to 8.9 (57). The margin was 27 points at quarter time and although the goals were eight to seven in the next three quarters, the Dales were never in trouble.

WESTERN PORT scoreboard

AFL South East get serious By Toe Punt AFL South East has continued to flex its muscle, informing clubs through the week that an integrity officer is about to be appointed and sent in to clubs to begin salary cap investigations. As part of the implementation and enforcement of the Player Payment Rules, AFL South East will conduct several club reviews during the remainder of this season. If not reviewed in 2017, clubs can expect to be reviewed over the next four or five years. AFL South East General Manager John Anderson said some clubs could

possibly be reviewed on more than one occasion. According to Mr Anderson, in 2017 (and beyond), the clubs selected for review will be based on any one of several criteria, including the following:  Those clubs with historical high levels of player expenditure  Clubs experiencing ongoing on field success  Clubs which are near to the maximum allocated points  Those clubs who have recruited players with high points  Recommendations from the Regional General Manager  Random selections

Clubs selected for 2017 will be notified shortly so that some of the reviews can be completed prior to the finals, and others may or may not include a review after finals. “In accordance with the Player Payment Rules, most clubs in the region have now entered the necessary information on to the online portal,” Mr Andersons said. “AFL Victoria is finalising the accreditation of a number of Integrity Officers who will be conducting these reviews. “It is suggested club officials become familiar with the rules including sections 6 and 7 which details the process for providing information to

the Integrity Officer as part of this review process,” Mr Anderson said. Meanwhile, in relation to the senior football review, there has been no word from league headquarters, however, MPNFL Clubs have been busy in the past fortnight ensuring they are positioned to manage any decision that has been handed down by the commission. It is also believed that AFL South East commission chairman Roger Hampson was on the campaign trail on Saturday at Pearcedale. It is also believed that regardless of the feedback of MPNFL clubs, a three-division structure, including SENFL clubs, will be recommended

by the working party and subsequently handed down by the commission. It is believed that the Division One structure will not include any Nepean club, not even Sorrento or Rosebud, and will only have 10 teams, made up of Peninsula and SENFL clubs (Cranbourne, Beaconsfield, Narre Warren and Berwick). Division Two (12 clubs) will be mostly made up of Nepean clubs, with the exception of Devon Meadows, Pearcedale, Crib Point and Tyabb. Division three would include those Nepean clubs, along with the likes of Hampton Park, Tooradin, ROC, Pakenham, Langwarrin, Chelsea and Karingal.

Acs error costly, Skye back in second spot SOCCER

By Craig MacKenzie A RARE mistake from goalkeeper Robbie Acs led to State 1 South-East leader Langwarrin losing its second match of the season at Lawton Park last weekend. A corner from Warragul United’s Stephen Maselli in the 43rd minute was misjudged by the veteran keeper who tried to punch clear but the ball ended up in the back of the Langy net for the visitors’ third goal in four minutes during a frenetic finish to the first half. Langy had taken a 13th minute lead after gun striker Liam Baxter was felled inside the area and converted from the spot. Former Langy star and Warragul captain Thomas Ahmadzai levelled with a volley in the 39th minute and Rory Wagner’s looping header a minute later following a long free-kick from Robbie Stephen put the visitors 2-1 up. Acs’ howler gave Warragul a two-goal cushion at the break but minutes after the restart Langy central defender Kieron Kenny’s header from Connor Belger’s corner made it 3-2. However that was the only breakthrough the home side could fashion in the second stanza which reached flashpoint in the 61st minute resulting in a melee which saw Wagner and Langy defender George Whiteoak sent off for violent conduct. The result cuts Langy’s lead to four points and although Gus Macleod’s men face a challenging away clash against St Kilda next weekend fourth-placed Warragul host Caulfield United Cobras, Langy’s closest challenger. Mornington easily accounted for bottom team Mooroolbark 4-0 at Dallas Brooks Park on Saturday to record its fourth straight win. Scott Millar gave the home side a 1-0 half-time lead with a header from a Sammy Orritt cross and a minute into the second half Orritt’s shot came off the post and struck Marinos Panayi and went in. With Ryan Paczkowski suspended former Bentleigh Greens and Eastern Lions striker Panayi was making his first start for Mornington and added a second in the 62nd minute via a back post header. Orritt has been in scintillating form since joining the club from New Zealand last month and completed the scoreline in the 64th minute by dinking the ball over a defender then lobbing it neatly over Mooroolbark keeper Matt King. Peninsula Strikers and Seaford United had to settle for a share of the spoils as they battled to a 2-2 draw in their State 2 South-East derby at

Centenary Park on Saturday. Strikers could have opened the scoring in the 16th minute had young Grant Davies showed more composure as he ran onto Trevor Johnston’s attempted chip only to shoot across the face of the Seaford goal. Three minutes later Seaford hit the front from a Matty Morris-Thomas free kick which presented Daniel Mota with a free header and he made no mistake. What was to become an injury ravaged affair started in the 30th minute when Strikers’ veteran left back Troy Williams hobbled off to be replaced by beanpole forward Callum Mitchell who had played in the reserves. Two minutes later Seaford star Dylan Waugh was forced off with a hamstring injury and replaced by quicksilver striker Mitch Lander. Teenager Mitchell had only been on the pitch for three minutes before making his mark. He made Seaford pay dearly for not clearing a free kick to the far post with a close range left-footed volley that gave Seaford keeper Harrison Burgess no chance. Seaford could have regained the lead in the 40th minute had Lander been able to get a touch to a long through ball with Strikers keeper Colin McCormack well off his line. Strikers ace Aziz Bayeh had to be replaced in the 47th minute and two minutes later Seaford was back in front. Strikers’ defender Conor Keely did well to slide and block a Lander shot but Strikers failed to clear from the resultant corner and Lander spun around and finished from point blank range to make it 2-1.

But Strikers hit back a second time when a superb cross from Tom Hawkins on the right set up Mitchell at the back post in the 57th minute and his firm header gave Burgess no chance. Veteran defender Chris McKenna was forced off with a groin strain and Lander burst through in the 58th minute but McCormack made an excellent save with his feet. Hawkins combined well with workhorse Raphael Stulz in the 73rd minute but his cross from the right flashed across the face of the Seaford goal. The final act came in the 94th minute when Morris-Thomas struck a well-timed half-volley only to see McCormack parry wide. Strikers will welcome back central midfield duo Sam Scott and Danny Brooks from suspension for Saturday’s crunch fixture against Frankston Pines. A Ronir Muriqi hat-trick at Monterey Reserve on Saturday maintained Doveton’s State 2 South-East title tilt and kept Pines in the midst of the relegation battle. Muriqi’s opening goal came via a 43rd minute free-kick, his second from the penalty spot a minute into the second half and his third in the 64th minute was a tap in at the back post. Skye United played host to cellar dweller Riversdale in Saturday’s State 3 South-East encounter and moved to second on the ladder following a 2-0 victory. Striker Daniel Attard kicked off proceedings less than 10 minutes in when he got on the end of a Jason Nowakowski through ball. Riversdale keeper Nicholas May

was caught in no man’s land as Attard looped his header over him and into the unguarded goal. It took until the 60th minute for Skye to find the scoresheet again when Marcus Collier’s cut back found Lawrence Komba and the striker finished well. Baxter emerged victorious after a nine-goal thriller at Baxter Park on Saturday in a State 4 South clash with Keysborough. The visitors led 2-0 at half-time thanks to Jose Roa’s solid side-foot finish from close range in the 13th minute and Ali Husen’s 44th minute strike. Alan Lipsett replaced Edin Aljija at the break and Grady Vickers replaced Dan Disseldorp in the 56th minutes and both proved to be inspired moves from Baxter gaffer Roy Kilner. Lipsett struck a shot that went in off the post in the 57th minute and two minutes later scores were level after a superb move involving Vickers and Lipsett which led to Mark Pagliarulo’s shot rebounding off a post and being converted by teenager Travis Ernsdoerfer. A stunning strike from teenager Jack Gallagher in the 68th minute made it 3-2 and Lipsett made it 4-2 in the 72nd minute. Deni Tintor converted from the penalty spot in the 83rd minute to make it 4-3 but Baxter’s two-goal cushion was restored two minutes later thanks to a superb solo effort by Pagliarulo. Keysborough’s Husen got his second in the 90th minute but Baxter’s comeback was complete. Rosebud Heart was beaten 3-0 at home by title contender Dandenong South last Saturday.

Heart had a severely depleted matchday squad with Liam Christodoulou and Dino Vosjan, both 17-year-olds, and Aaron Young and Ash Scoles all promoted from the reserves. Three goals in seven minutes from Tommy Bekiri settled the issue in the first half. Bekiri stole the ball from Scholes in the 24th minute and slotted it past Heart keeper Sean Skelly. Five minutes later Bekiri was sent through and made it 2-0 after a poor pass by Will O’Brien turned over possession in midfield and Bekiri’s free header from a free-kick in the 31st minute completed the damage. Heart hopes to sign former Langy and Baxter midfielder Tony Orr this week. Saturday’s State 5 South fixture featuring home team Somerville Eagles and Pakenham United was called off as the pitch at Barber Reserve was ruled unplayable. It could pose an ongoing problem for the fledgling club which shares the venue with the local footy club. “We have only trained there once in the last fortnight and we knew it was getting soft so we only trained off the pitch that night,” said Eagles president Felix Arena. “But the footy club train all over the pitch two nights a week and that’s what’s killed it off.” Southern United’s trip to Wembley Park to take on Box Hill United last Saturday was successful as the local women’s NPL side came away with two wins and two draws. The senior side won 1-0 thanks to a 48th minute goal from captain Candela Ferreyra Bas and remains in fifth spot in the elite league. The under-13s maintained their four-point lead at the top of the table with a 4-1 win with goals from Rhys McKenna (17th minute), Alessandra Davis (42nd) and Sage Kirby (34th, 44th). The under-15s drew 0-0 and the under-18s drew 1-1 with Kallista Tzelios scoring for Southern. This weekend’s games: SATURDAY 3pm: Southern Utd v Calder Utd (Monterey Reserve, U13s 10am, U15s 11.30am, U18s 1pm), St Kilda v Langwarrin (Elwood Park), South Springvale v Mornington (Warner Reserve), Peninsula Strikers v Frankston Pines (Centenary Park), Mazenod Utd v Seaford Utd (Mazenod College), South Yarra v Skye Utd (Fawkner Park), Endeavour Hills Fire v Baxter (Power Reserve), Keysborough v Rosebud Heart (Coomoora Reserve), Somerville Eagles v Dandenong Warriors (Barber Reserve).

Hockey women secure spots in state teams By Ben Triandafillou FOUR women from the Mornington Peninsula Hockey Club have been selected to join Victorian state sides playing in Newcastle, NSW, in late September. Emma Brown and Kim Trezise are in the over-35 Victorian Masters team. Trezise, 39, of Dromana will return to the over-35s after playing last year with the representative side while Brown, 35, of Mornington will be making her debut for the over-35 state team. “I started my family young and with university and then work, hockey took a back seat so I’m very happy to be in a representative side again,” Trezise said. “My family is very proud and I love representing the club and the peninsula.” Brown, who captains the Mornington Peninsula Hockey Club’s Victorian League One side, is hoping to make an impact in her first match

with a Victorian team. “I feel extremely proud and excited to have the opportunity to represent my state and can’t wait to get there,” Brown said. Margaret Nettleship, 72, of Moorooduc will play in goal for the over65 state team. “I’ve been playing since I was about 13 and it’s nice to keep going and still be able to play,” she said. “They will probably have about four or five teams in the tournament and some of these women are just amazing. “These ladies have played for a long time and are still very fit. It’ll be quite a good competition.” Also playing in goal, Julia Ashmore, of the southeastern suburbs, will join the over-45 state team. Ashmore has represented Victoria three times and said that “it’s still a great feeling to be selected to represent your state”.

Junior tennis player overcomes rare childhood condition By Ben Triandafillou A MORNINGTON tennis player has made the most of a devastating situation. Riley Dumsday, 12, was diagnosed with a rare childhood condition called Perthes’ disease in 2011, which has made him unable to put pressure on his right leg and forced him to use a wheelchair. But Dumsday hasn’t let the condition hold him back and returned home with two trophies from the Queensland Wheelchair Tennis Open on 28 June. He took out the under-18 doubles with partner Marcus Lentini and finished runner-up in boys under-18s singles. Riley’s father, Steve Dumsday, said Riley had come a long way since starting wheelchair tennis about a year and a half ago. “He was just starting to get into tennis and was being coached in Mornington,” Dumsday said. Then the disease struck. “The disease affected his hip and ball socket, cutting off blood flow. “We then contacted Tennis Australia and had a wheelchair come and try session.

“He has now joined the wheelchair development camp and plays around Australia at International Tennis Federation tournaments.” Since the start of the year, Riley has risen from 65 in junior world singles rankings to 35. Riley is regularly coached by Alex Barnikov at Mornington Tennis Centre as part of the Elite Tennis Academy. Elite Tennis Academy director Kate Antosik said it is amazing to see what Riley had accomplished in such a short time. “He has gone from being quite upset about being put into this situation to now being proud of what he has achieved,” she said. “He had never played a tournament before playing wheelchair tennis so it’s amazing to see him playing against some of the top juniors in Australia. “He has one of the hardest work ethics.” Riley is heading to Canberra for his third ITF tournament in September. He is also looking forward to playing one of his original sports, basketball, with the upcoming start of wheelchair basketball in Mornington.

By Ben Triandafillou THE first event of the AFL South East’s annual ‘Women in Sport’ Lunch was held at Mornington Racecourse on Friday 21 July. The event was to celebrate women in sport on the Mornington Peninsula with a focus on football. “While it was football biased with the major growth in Women’s AFL, it was also about looking at other achievements from women in sport and the opportunities that are now available,” AFLSE commercial manager Peter Maynard said. “It was a fantastic event, a great day and a good crowd.” The event had a turnout of about 120 people and was MC’d by sports broadcaster Tiffany Cherry. Cherry was joined by special guests Susan Alberti, AFL journalist Caroline Wilson and Collingwood’s AFLW Coach Wayne Siekman. “It was interesting to listen to the keynote speaker, Susan Alberti, who was somewhat the pioneer of AFLW and hearing from Caroline Wilson about women in sport behind-thescenes,” Maynard said. AFLSE will be hosting a second ‘Women in Sport’ lunch on Friday 11 August at Holm Park, Beaconsfield with slightly different guest speakers. Cherry will again MC the event with Melbourne Football Club CEO Peter Jackson, ex-Australian netball player Bianca Chatfield, Western Bulldogs marque player Ellie Blackburn and AFLW player Debbie Lee.

Crib seniors fall short after spirited comeback CRIB POINT FNC By Jacob Collins THE under 19’s faced a depleted Pearcedale side with the Panthers only managing to get 14 players onto the field. As a result the Magpies agreed to lend two players each quarter to the opposition in order to allow the game to continue. In windy conditions Crib Point were wasteful with the ball heading into the forward line early but nonetheless they were able to get the score on the board. It was a steady performance from the pointers, finishing eventual winners by 116 points. Joel Wisken pulled a Brad Dick circa 2009 performance out of the bag, kicking six goals, while Corbin Pett was also a prominent figure in the forward line kicking two goals

and providing a good contest. Next week the unders face Hastings in what promises to be a fiery contest given the rivalry. It was a strong start for the reserves side with the team only two points down to round out the half. The side remained close to the panthers throughout the third term but a strong last quarter blew the Magpies chances away. The panthers piled on seven goals and ran away with a 52 point win. Tim Cook was best afield playing down back while Jarrod “Fiskolicious” Fisk played well having come up from the under 19’s game. Gordon “ghost mode” Frankel also featuring among the best players for the day. Special mentions go out to Warren Herrington, Jared Newton and Glenn Barclay for pulling on the boots coming out of retirement.

Next week the reserves side will look to produce a more sustainable performance when they face Hastings. After having beaten the Panthers to secure their second win earlier in the season, the seniors were unable to replicate their performance to repeat that result. After a slow start from the Magpies they worked there way back into the game and threatened a comeback in the last quarter but it wasn’t to be. The Panthers held strong and finished with a 33 point win. Matthew Sloper was strong down back, providing good positioning, while Dean Warry proved a strong presence in the forward line. Liam O’conner played well between the two arcs. The side will need to bring their best next week when they face fourth placed Hastings. Regardless it will

be a hard fought contest between two long term rivals. *** It was amazing to see last week just how far our club has come this year. D grade took it to the wire losing by just six goals to a team that a few weeks ago beat them by more than 20 goals. Our girls kept pushing all game getting amazing turnovers. Unfortunately Pearcedale were the ones to finish with the four points. BOC went to Bridget for one of her best games yet in GD reading the play so well and Chloe for getting so many tips and hands to the ball. C grade proved why they are grand final contenders last week getting back on the winners list with a three goal win over a team they lost to by a small margin in previous weeks. Our girls went out determined, lost their momentum a bit in the last quarter but remained in control. BOC went

to Ange for her amazing directing of play in centre. B grade had a very comfortable win over Pearcedale using it as a chance to focus on aspects of their game to work on. With the wind taking control of the ball in the air, the girls kept it short and sharp providing a great flow down the court. BOC went to Fi for her amazing passes into the goal ring and pressure around the court. A grade also had a comfortable win and used it as a chance to try out different positions around the court. The girls were our and firing from the first whistle playing in finals form. BOC went to Eb who had a very strong game and shot amazingly. This week we have Hastings, a great rivalry and what should be a good three games! Let’s go for three wins! Go Crib!

Hastings come up short against Bombers HASTINGS FNC ON Saturday Hastings came up against traditional rival Frankston Bombers in what turned out to be great game of local football with the bombers coming away with a four point victory. The Bombers started the game better than Hastings kicking five goals in the opening quarter to be four goals up. They only kicked another three goals for the rest of the match. Out boys were tremendous all day in blustery cold conditions. This Saturday the club is back at home playing our neighbours Crib Point in what will be another fantastic day of local football. Our past players will be in attendance celebrating our 1907, 1947, and 1977 premiership successes. Cost for the day is $20. If you are a past player please get along and support the club while catching up with some of your old team mates. Also on Saturday the wonderful ladies of our club are holding their Ladies Day function. The cost is $40 a single. For bookings please call the club on 5979 1740.

Seniors Report On Saturday we played Frankston in what was a big game for the club. With conditions not being ideal, we had a number of injuries going into the game, we unfortunately gave them a huge start which in the end resulted in us going down by a fairly small margin. I thought that our younger boys really stood up on the day. This week we play Crib Point in what will be huge game for the club. Reserves Report Today we were up against Frankston in a massive game to shape our season. In pretty horrible conditions with the wind doing all sorts of weird stuff Frankston jumped out of the blocks kicking three goals to nothing. Our pressure was down across the ground and we were really reactive and hoping Frankston would make mistakes. The second quarter was much the same; no intensity to the footy. We were really lucky to get a few late goals and stay in touch at half time.

The third quarter we started to take the game on a bit more. We were getting to the footy first and really applying lots of pressure. Unfortunately we could convert this on the scoreboard with Frankston kicking teo late goals to really make it hard in the last for us. The last quarter we tried hard but couldn’t match it with Frankston. They ran away four goal winners. Losing this game really puts us back in the pack again sitting third at the moment. How we go about the rest of the season is honestly up to the players as individuals. We play rival Crib Point this week in a massive day for the club. Past players and Ladies Day. I am really confident the guys will bounce back and put in a great performance and get another win. Best players Dylan Paarlberg, Jake Dade bell and Ash Harrison. Netball Report D grade started the day very slowly. Matilda Strange filled in for D grade this week and earned herself and best on court in the goal defence position. Brodie Moncrieff also had a great

game in the wing defence position. D grade will need to regroup for their next contest against Crib Point. C grade were also out-classed by the Bombshells. They fought hard throughout the match but couldn’t shake the experienced Bombers girls. Ruby Hannaford is growing in confidence every week and played a great match. B grade got off to a flyer in the first quarter, but the Bombers girls came out hard in the second and took the lead at half time. Tash Green continued her dominant form in the wing defence position. Too many mistakes throughout the match basically cost us the win, in the end going down by four goals. Ladies Day and Crib Point this week will be a great day. Women’s Football Report This week we played Cerberus in a game that we needed to win. They out played us in first quarter using the strong winds well to lead by over four goals. The rest of the game all of our girls played really good hard football. The end of the game we fell one point short Cerberus 4.5 to

Hastings 3.10. It was a great effort by the girls. They were the better side for three quarters but couldn’t kick that goal to win the game. I’m so proud of all the girls that have represented the women’s Hastings Football Club this year they have not let themselves or the club down. *** Upcoming Functions: The club is hosting Past players celebrating the 1907/1947/1977 Premiership sides. For further information regarding this great day please contact the club on 5979 1740 to book your attendance, $20 single. Ladies Day is also on. C cost is $40 single. For bookings please call the club on 59791740. *** Next game Saturday 29th July Hastings FNC vs Crib Point FNC at Hastings. All games commence 10am.
