Callout for art to help ‘save’ green wedge

No brush off: David Gill takes off his councillor’s hat in favour of an artist’s beret when he paints for “my own enjoyment”. His series of “geometric abstraction acrylics in flat plane style” is titled “Seasonal perspectives of the Mornington Peninsula Green Wedge”. Picture: Yanni

THE Mornington Peninsula can mean many things to many people. The 2016 census puts the peninsula’s population at 150,000, but the number on the ground is often much greater. Thousands visit on a daily basis all year and, over summer, the number of people staying overnight or for days at a time is in the tens of thousands. But what attracts these people - residents and visitors - is under threat. Planning regulations decreed by state legislators seem to regard the peninsula’s towns and villages in much the same way as that of Melbourne’s inner suburbs, allowing for higher buildings and more dense development. Outside of the towns and villages, in the peninsula’s so-called hinterland, the march of development over prime agricultural land is supposedly protected by green wedge zoning. But that too is under threat. Mornington Peninsula Shire last week held a “summit” to draw attention to the weakening of planning regulations and how this threatens green wedge-zoned areas, which are credited with being among the peninsula’s biggest attractions. As well as spending a day talking about the problem, the shire is looking for support from artists who draw inspiration from areas within the green wedge. Cr David Gill, who heads the art and culture community advisory panel, is urging “local artists, including students through to professionals”, to enter the 2018 Green Wedge Paint Out Exhibition. “We wish the world to know what a unique and important place the peninsula is and ask artists to showcase the many wonderful aspects of our green wedge rural and environmental areas of significance, which need to be protected from insensitive development,” Cr Gill said. Artists can register by Saturday 14 July and then take until early August to complete their work. Details are on the shire’s website under “art and culture” and Green Wedge Paint Out Exhibition or call 5950 1655. Keith Platt

Parties urged to reveal policies Stephen Taylor steve@mpnews.com.au POLITICAL parties have been called on to release their green wedge and planning policies to re-affirm the protection of green wedge zones well before the November state election. RMIT University’s Professor Michael Buxton told last week’s Mornington Peninsula Green Wedge Summit that planning and population management was a “hot issue impact-

ing on the community”. He said some of Victoria’s most important environmental assets, such as the green wedge zones, would face increasing pressures. “Greater Melbourne’s population explosion highlights the strategic value of the decisions taken in the 1960s to create the green wedges and, also, the importance of bipartisan support for strengthening long term planning controls,” Prof Buxton, who is regarded as one of Australia’s most respected planning commentators, said.

“Although green wedges are set aside as non-urban land through the planning scheme, they are subject to intense pressures for urban development and change.” Prof Buxton said these competing pressures included urban development, hobby farms, tourism, intensive agriculture and infrastructure, all exacerbated by the green wedge areas’ closeness to metropolitan Melbourne. “Green wedge zones are increasingly being recognised for their major contribution to community health and

Shire – a quarter of those available – an automatic right to build new, or renovate existing, homes into three storey “McMansions” in low-scale townships and coastal villages. “The high use of general residential zoning in urban areas, at 76 per cent, will increasingly lead to multi-unit development with even greater impact on vegetation, road congestion and lowering of existing residential amenity and environment – the very reason people had made the location their home,” he said.

wellbeing as development pressures dramatically increase living densities in residential areas with the abolition of local planning laws,” he said. “In the case of greater Melbourne and Victoria, the Mornington Peninsula Green Wedge is a major health, agriculture, tourism and employment asset.” Prof Buxton criticised the state government for last year - “without any notice” - changing planning regulations to allow the owners of 24,000 housing sites in Mornington Peninsula

Islanders oppose prison farm ‘vision’ FRENCH Island residents concerned about ambitious plans by Chinese investors to turn the rural hamlet into a “second Phillip Island” will discuss their fears with Hastings MP Neale Burgess this Sunday (1 July). Since the sale of the former McLeod Prison Farm to the Chinese Wufu Group last year for a reported $4 million, the islanders have heard rumours about the new owners wanting to remodel their investment into something like their much-busier neighbour. Members of the French Island Community Association want to make plain their opposition to the reported plans, with one saying: “This is not government policy and not what French Islanders want. “The reason most of us live here is that it is the quiet island – not like Phillip Island. In fact, several French Island residents are refugees from over-development and over-crowding.” Chinese business woman Xu Ziyun, CEO of Wufu Investments, Shanghai, met with state tourism minister John Eren last July to discuss future plans for the prison farm and the island generally, which she glowing referred to on her company’s website: “The [Victorian government] representatives suggested that we could make great efforts to develop tourism on the island of France (sic) and make her the second Phillip Island (the most popu-

STATE Tourism John Erin with Xu Ziyun, CEO of the company that has bought the historic McLeod prison farm on French Island.

lar tourist attraction in the area).” She said the state government “will fully cooperate with” Wufu and “hopes to take the French island into a key strategy” with Phillip Island. Also at the meeting were representatives of the Department of Economic Development, Jobs, Transport and Resources and Regional Development Victoria (RDV). A recent post on the Wufu website in Chinese said: “Our esteemed customers can soon look forward to a holiday on Wufu Island” – seemingly referring to French Island. “Not only do they want to impose a major tourist development upon this

island of 115 residents, they have already decided to re-name it,” the community group member said. The Wufu group is a primary service provider in China of elderly care, tourism, and the “cultural travelling industry”. Its stated plans for the island include: Turning the jail into a tourist centre and museum, and building a string of one-storey flats as a hostel, a business centre where “tourists can work at the same time as holidaying”, a Chinese herb farm, and, contentiously, establishing health facilities, such as hot springs, to “cure our body and mind”.

Swastikas ‘repugnant’, says civil rights group THE daubing of a red swastika on a gum tree outside Bittern train station has drawn condemnation from members of a leading civil rights organisation. Hastings police are also trying to track down the offenders. Anti-Defamation Commission chairman Dr Dvir Abramovich, who was sent photographs of the graffiti by an offended Bittern resident, Wednesday 20 June, described it as “repugnant”. “This repugnant Nazi graffiti is an assault on all residents of the Mornington Peninsula and violates our nation’s values of acceptance and respect for all people,” Dr Abramovich said. “The Nazi swastika is a universal symbol of hate that represents pure evil and, whenever such cowardly and despicable incidents happen, chilling emotional damage is done to all community members. “This is a sad and distressing reminder of the lengths people will go to express their unbridled bigotry and serves as a disturbing wake-up call that white supremacism and racism are on the rise in Victoria.” Dr Ambramovich said intolerance has no place in Australia. “It is critical that the message sent back to those who seek to spread division and intimidation is that they will not succeed. “The Anti-Defamation Commission encourages anyone with information to come forward. It is our hope that the perpetrators of this vandalism will be swiftly brought to justice.”

Sign of hate: Swastika graffiti scars this tree near Bittern station last week. Picture: Supplied

Hastings police sergeant Jason Wombwell said police were committed to investigating prejudice-motivated crime. “I encourage anyone subjected to this theme to report any instances to their local police,” he said. Anyone with information relating to the graffiti is urged to call Hastings police 5970 7800.

GREEN WEDGE SUMMIT

A vital ingredient to city’s food bowl THE Mornington Peninsula was set to play a greater role in feeding Greater Melbourne’s growing population, a speaker at the Green Wedge Summit at Main Ridge Community Hall, Friday 22 June, said. Melbourne University’s Dr Rachel Carey, who heads the Foodprint Melbourne project, said the increasing urbanisation of large areas of formerly productive farmland around Melbourne highlighted the importance of maintaining agricultural production on the peninsula. “The resilience of city food systems

is facing growing challenges from population growth, urban sprawl, climate change and from declining supplies of natural resources, such as land, water and fossil fuels,” Dr Carey said. “Agricultural production across the Mornington Peninsula remains rich in diversity, scale, production capacity and, importantly, is close to local markets. It has a combined value of primary agricultural production and significant processing businesses valued at $1 billion annually.” Dr Carey said favourable climatic

conditions, underpinned by fertile soils, contributed to a unique natural landscape that supported a variety of high quality food and fibre production systems. Significant agricultural industries included poultry farms, horticultural (fruit, vegetable, salad mix) systems, vineyards, livestock and fibre enterprises, and an expanding diversity of artisan and value-added businesses. “One of the most important issues for the long-term resilience of the peninsula’s agricultural activities is to ensure their financial viability,” Dr

Carey said. The area of agricultural land qualifying for the shire’s farmland (2013/14) rate is about 40 per cent – or 290 square kilometres – of the Mornington Peninsula’s 720 square kilometres. Dr Carey said the region’s seasonal production diversity was part of an important risk management strategy that provided full-time employment and ensured secondary and tertiary industries benefited from consistent business, including transport, distribution, processing and sales.

Professor Michael Buxton

Parties urged to reveal all on planning Continued from Page 1 “This is a repeat of the same current planning ministry height strategy in suburban Melbourne that has led to a major surge in oversized housing taking up all of a site and dwarfing the neighbours. “This ultimately sees the disappearance of trees in urban areas and loss of neighbourhood environment and amenity. “In Mornington Peninsula Shire, the imposition of three-storey homes in traditionally small scale residential areas could lead to major urbanisation on the boundaries of the green wedge throughout the peninsula’s historic coastal villages and townships.” Prof Buxton said all councils with green wedge areas should be prepared for extra development pressure in the future. He said strong local community support was vital in maintaining environmental integrity for future generations.

GREEN WEDGE SUMMIT

Green wedge plan comments sought MORNINGTON Peninsula Shire’s draft 2018 Green Wedge Management Plan is open for public comment. The draft plan aims to identify the long-term vision, objectives and actions for the sustainable use and development of green wedge-zoned areas. It also outlines key issues, opportunities and likely future pressures. The mayor Cr Bryan Payne said community responses already received showed a “high level of support for protecting our green wedge”. “We must protect and manage the green wedge to ensure it remains an area where the natural environment and biodiversity is preserved,” he said. “The green wedge is renowned for its rural charm and character. It’s an area that supports agriculture and farming, provides for tourism and outdoor recreation, and is a place where many people choose to live. The green wedge is a key aspect of the peninsula’s character and is crucial to the amenity, lifestyle and wellbeing of our residents and visitors.” Cr Payne said the plan was essential to help

council manage green wedge areas. Planning services committee chair Cr Simon Brooks sees the green wedge as “one of the shire’s most valued and distinctive assets”. “The plan seeks to identify the values and features of our green wedge, the preferred future land use, environmental and natural resources that should be protected, and the needs of the local community,” Cr Brooks said. Community submissions close 5pm, Friday 3 August. Submissions can be filled in online at mornpen.vic.gov.au/greenwedge The draft plan is also available at Rosebud, Mornington, Hastings and Somerville shire offices. Drop in information sessions are being held 2-4pm and 6-7.30pm Tuesday 10 July at Mornington library, Vancouver Street; Hastings Community Hub, 1973 Frankston-Flinders Road, Thursday 12 July, and Main Ridge Community Hall, Main Creek Road, Wednesday 18 July.

Green wedge ‘vital’ for the future - Hunt

Ladies, Mens & Childrens

GREEN wedge zones around Melbourne linked a healthy lifestyle with nature at a time of record population growth and high-density living, according to Flinders MP Greg Hunt who opened the Green Wedge Summit on Friday 22 June at Main Ridge Community Hall. Mr Hunt said it was vital to protect and retain the Mornington Peninsula Green Wedge as a major health, conservation, agricultural, economic and recreational environment. “Given [population] forecasts ... a pro-active

approach is needed to manage these pressures appropriately and to ensure the scenic and natural qualities of these areas are not eroded over time. “The successful protection and management of the green wedge will depend on many partnerships and commitments from political parties, which have had bipartisan support for the retention of the peninsula’s and other green wedges for four decades, as well as local councils and government agencies both state and federal.”

Planning to restrict urban growth Stephen Taylor steve@mpnews.com.au RESTRICTIONS on urban expansion and strong rural subdivision controls are at the heart of the draft Mornington Peninsula Green Wedge Management Plan. The plan was released for public comment at last Friday’s (22 June) green wedge summit at the Main Ridge Community Hall. Speakers included Flinders MP Greg Hunt, RMIT environment and planning professor Michael Buxton, Mornington Peninsula Regional Tourism Board chair Tracey Cooper, fifth generation Red Hill orchardist Sheryn Mock, shire planning services manager David Bergin, Peninsula Speaks community environmental group cofounder Christine Haydon, and University of Melbourne food policy lecturer Dr Rachel Carey. More than 100 residents and representatives of community groups attended the summit to discuss and determine the peninsula’s planning direction and controls. The mayor Cr Bryan Payne said the green wedge management plan set “key directions” to ensure about 50,000 hectares, or 70 per cent of the peninsula’s land mass, remained rural “in recognition of its value for current and future generations”. “Through this management plan we are confirming the urban growth boundary allowing no urban expansion into the green wedge and with strong rural subdivision controls to protect the landscape and opportunities for agriculture, rural living and DECKING T/Pine 70x22 KD ACQ ........................... $2.40mt T/Pine 90x22 KD ACQ ........................... $3.05mt T/Pine 140x22 KD ACQ ......................... $6.25mt Merbau 70x19 Random ........................ $4.40mt Merbau 90x19 Random ........................ $5.50mt Merbau 140x22 Random .................... $12.50mt

and Devilbend natural features reserve. About 27 per cent of the peninsula’s remnant vegetation is reportedly on public land. “Conservation policies for the peninsula were first introduced more than 40 years ago and the special role and character of the Mornington Peninsula Green Wedge continues to be highly valued by both the local community and the wider population of Melbourne,” Cr Payne said. “The green wedge management plan will support sustainable agricultural uses that are consistent with protecting landscape and habitat values, as well as access to regional programs for peninsula farmers. “It will support agritourism, including farm gate sales, host farms, farmers markets and recycled water projects. “Tourism and leisure-based development which supports and is established in conjunction with a core purpose of the green wedge, such as agriculture, conservation or outdoor recreation, will be considered for the green wedge. “This is provided they are not over developed.” Under the plan, minimum lot sizes will be required for intensive uses, such as restaurants and function centres, with no cluster or strip development outside established townships. The green wedge includes Arthurs Seat, Red Hill, Flinders, Balnarring, Shoreham and Somers, as well as smaller settlements at Moorooduc, Merricks, Point Leo and Main Ridge.

the green wedge is privately owned. It consists of 4939 lots, some of which remain in multi-title landholdings. About 83 per cent of the lots have a dwelling of some kind, but only a few have multi-dwelling sites. These are mainly in resorts. The 4116 separate dwellings in the green wedge have a 71.5 per cent occupancy rate and housed 8519 people last year. Cr Payne said through the green wedge management plan the council supported the recreational role of the peninsula with proper infrastructure planning and investment. He said the shire was seeking a partnership with the state government to develop a green wedge recreation plan. The summit was told the purpose of the green wedge zone was to implement the state planning policy framework and the local planning policy framework, including the municipal strategic statement and local planning policies. It aimed to provide for the use of land for agriculture; to recognise, protect and conserve green wedge land for its agricultural, environmental, historic, landscape, recreational and tourism opportunities, and mineral and stone resources; to encourage use and development consistent with sustainable land management practices; to encourage sustainable farming activities and provide opportunity for a variety of productive agricultural uses; to protect, conserve and enhance the cultural heritage significance and the character of open rural and scenic non-urban landscapes, and to protect and enhance the biodiversity of the area.

Leading the way: Camp Manyung volunteers lead the way in the YMCA’s Winter Solstice Swim at Mothers Beach, Mornington. Picture: Supplied.

Taking the plunge for a cause WHAT better time to take a dip than on the shortest day of the year? That’s what participants in the YMCA’s annual Winter Solstice Swim thought as they dived into the chilly waters at Mothers Beach, Mornington. The free event aimed to encourage residents to stay active in winter and raise money for the YMCA’s open doors program. “This year we had a record number

of brave swimmers,” organiser Renee Tickner-Lane said. “They donned their costumes and, with much anticipation, dived into the 13-degree waters to take on the 50-metre swim challenge.” Afterwards they enjoyed a hot chocolate and sausage sizzle in exchange for a gold coin donation to the YMCA Open Doors fund. “Each year hundreds of children

miss out on attending camp with their classmates due to disadvantage,” Ms Tickner-Lane said. “The fund helps pay for these children and other deserving community groups to attend.” The swim was the first of many community and family outdoor adventure events scheduled for this year at Camp Manyung.

The Coastal Management Plan establishes an agreement between the Victorian Government, Mornington Peninsula Shire and the community as to how the foreshore reserve will be managed. This is the first round of public community consultation. The community will have additional opportunities to provide thoughts and suggestions on this plan in the coming months.

Appliances can cause house fires THE CFA wants to make residents do not “power a house fire” through appliances overheating or being damaged. CFA manager community safety Jude Kennedy said using damaged electrical equipment and appliances could result in fires urged that they be checked before being plugged in. “People need to remember that when electrical appliances are left on for an extended period of time they could overheat and have disastrous effects,” Mr Kennedy said. “We are urging residents to check their electrical appliances, including laptops and televisions, which are highly used in homes. “Make sure you turn off and unplug your electrical appliances before going to bed and when leaving your home unattended.” Electrical appliances safety tips: Follow manufacturers’ instructions when using any electrical appliance. Use low wattage globes in lamps. Ensure monitors, laptops, televisions and other equipment have good air flow around them and are not in confined spaces or covered. Turn off all electrical appliances at the power point when not in use. Only use certified electrical tradespeople to repair damaged or faulty electrical appliances, wiring or equipment. Avoid using double adaptors. Use power boards according to manufacturers’ instructions, never overload and check regularly for damage. Meanwhile, on another fire front, expressions of interest are being from anyone interested in joining the Bushfire Strategy Advisory Group. Agencies that manage bushfire risk in Victoria

are developing the next strategic bushfire management plan for the greater Melbourne region and calling upon those affected by bushfire or interested in bushfire management to nominate to be a part of the advisory group that will help shape the plan. “Bushfires are a part of life in Victoria. Our changing climate means our bushfire threat is constantly increasing,” Forest Fire Management Victoria regional manager, forest and fire planning, Shannon Devenish said. “Our community is filled with many diverse voices and we want to ensure we are listening to all stakeholders as we develop the next generation of planning for bushfire risk in our region. “Many people are invested in our bushfire prevention works, whether by smoke from planned burning affecting their business activities, or by living in a high bushfire risk area. It’s important to us these groups are represented in the plan. “We are particularly hoping to receive expressions of interest from people with an interest or investment in agriculture, animal welfare, bees and beekeeping, community safety, stakeholder behaviour in emergencies, cultural heritage, the environment, bushfire behaviour, forestry, tourism and recreation, and wineries.” The advisory group will help identify several combinations of bushfire management strategy while the final decision and endorsements will be made by agencies with legislative accountability. For more information email forestfire.planningpp@delwp.vic.gov.au. Submissions close on Friday, 29 June.

Man airlifted after house fire

Picture: Gary Sissons

A MAN was airlifted to The Alfred Hospital after a house fire in Wallaces Road, Dromana, Friday 15 June. It is believed a lamp set fire to a mattress. Two rooms were damaged in the blaze. Witnesses said it took paramedics several

minutes to stabilise the man before the helicopter could take off from the oval at Dromana Secondary College. A relative late last week said the man had recovered and returned home.

Libs to lower house heights THE Liberal Party has pledged to throw out three-storey house height limits in areas across the Mornington Peninsula if it wins the November state election. Mr Davis said three storey height limits were “completely inappropriate for any areas in the peninsula”. “I think [Mornington Peninsula Shire] council has been quite right in saying this should be stopped in this area,” he said. “They [the shire] have had no support from the current government on that. We would certainly ensure that there were sensible protections put back in place for many of those areas.” Mr Davis said “sensible protections” meant reducing height limits to two storeys while scrapping “as-of-right” three-storey limits. He said a Liberal Nationals government would reintroduce the two dwelling limit on lots in the Neighbourhood Residential Zone, reduce building height limits in parts of that zone, and bring

back the nine-metre discretionary height limit in the General Residential Zone. He said the party would review the Garden Area rule – which stipulates areas of green, open space – to make it “more sensible and workable”. Mr Davis was in leafy Glen Iris last week standing alongside opposition leader Matthew Guy, who said he would change zoning rules to mirror those he imposed when he was planning minister 2010-14. These would make it harder to build mediumdensity housing on established streets under twostorey height limits. The height limits were the subject of a failed Coalition planning and environment amendment in state parliament last month which supporters believe would have strengthened attempts to overturn the already implemented 11-metre, threestorey height limits on the peninsula.

NEWS DESK Rallying against industry plans

Cap cool for hospital patients

A RALLY to oppose the AGL gas import and Kawasaki hydrogen export projects in Western Port will be held at the Fred Smith Reserve, Hastings foreshore, 1pm, Sunday 1 July. The Crib Point AGL gas import project and the Kawasaki Hydrogen Energy Supply Chain pilot project have raised community concerns over the environmental, social and economic risks they pose to the values of Western Port, rally organisers say. Save Westernport and Westernport and Peninsula Protection Council are hosting the rally supported by Environment Victoria, Victorian National Parks Association and Blue Wedges Coalition. The Crib Point AGL floating regasification project aims to ship LNG from around the world to a floating storage and regasification unit, while the Kawasaki coal-to-hydrogen pilot project will ship hydrogen from Hastings to Japan. “The project is a short-term measure that has long-term consequences for the environment and the local economy and potentially threatens the safety of the local community,” Save Westernport spokesperson Louise Page said. “There are community concerns over the risk to the high natural values of Western Port Bay as being an internationally significant Ramsar site, providing critical habitat for migratory birds, and being home to one of the most southerly extents of mangrove species globally. “The project has also been criticised by Victorian and federal government ministers as being illogical, short sighted and a symptom of a broken gas market and should not go ahead. “Continuing to invest in the dying fossil fuel industry is an equally bad decision at a time when we need to be investing more in rapidly transitioning to the growing market of renewable energy. “The risk from the increased development and shipping will threaten the high conservation and economic values that Western Port provides.”

A NEW treatment for capping hair loss during chemotherapy for cancer is being rolled out at Frankston Hospital. Scalp cooling chills the head and reduces the level of chemotherapy drugs reaching hair follicles to cut down on hair loss. Crib Point mother-of-three Angela Fox this month became the first patient to have scalp cooling. “It’s a marvellous opportunity to have all of this technology in a public hospital, which basically helps you keep your dignity while you’re having all of this treatment done,” she said. “Hair is fairly important – if you’ve still got your hair a lot of people don’t realise what you’re going through and that’s a good thing.” Chemotherapy day unit nurse manager Joan Thomas said scalp cooling will help peninsula cancer patients. “Losing your hair can be quite traumatic. Stopping this from happening can help the mental health and well-being of patients as it helps them continue to look and feel like their usual self.” Ms Fox was diagnosed with breast cancer after a routine mammogram in March. “The tumour was very, very small – they were lucky to find it actually,” she said. “Within four weeks I was having surgery at Frankston Hospital to remove the tumour and some lymph nodes from my arm.” The Crib Point resident, also a grandmother-of-two, will have four more chemotherapy sessions while wearing the cooling cap.

“It feels very strange and definitely cold – it feels like when you jump in the water and there are all these bubbles,” Ms Fox said. “It saves me losing my hair though, so I don’t mind what it feels like.” Up to four patients at any time will be able to have cap cooling during treatments thanks to a grant from

Not going to waste: Mornington Peninsula Shire Bryan Payne and Cr Rosie Clark recycling x-rays at the Mornington Resource Recovery Centre. Picture supplied

Useful x-ray recycling UNWANTED x-rays can be recycled for free at the Mornington Resource Recovery Centre. The offer is past of Mornington Peninsula Shire’s efforts to divert waste from landfill. X-ray films are recycled to extract the silver which is converted into a purer form of silver and reused for such things as jewellery, silver solder, electrical components and film manufacture. The mayor Cr Bryan Payne said chemicals in

X-rays made them a hazardous waste. The decision to accept x-rays for free was made after a suggestion by retired nurse Denise Kempster, of Somers. Mornington Resource Recovery Centre is at 134 Watt Road, Mornington and opens 8am– 4pm Monday to Friday and 8am–5pm on weekends and public holidays.

Truck driver clue

Going nowhere: Police are seeking the driver of this damaged silver Holden Astra. Picture: Supplied

Plea for footage

POLICE are seeking dash-cam footage of a silver coloured Holden Astra being driven erratically south bound on the Mornington Peninsula Freeway, 4.25am Saturday 16 June. The car, which was later involved in a single vehicle collision, was found with extensive frontend damage in the middle of the freeway blocking both lanes. The driver had fled the scene and mid-last week police were making inquiries about the registered owner. Police would like to speak to anyone who may have seen the car travelling on Peninsula Link or the Mornington Peninsula Freeway, or who may have come to the driver’s or passenger’s aid after the collision. Leading Senior Constable Ron Trainer, of Mornington police, said footage of the car being driven before it crashed, or the actual crash, would be helpful.

A GREY or silver Hyundai SUV with stolen plates allegedly drove onto the wrong side of Thompsons Road into the path of a semi-trailer to avoid police, 4.40am Monday 18 June. The alleged incident occurred after a short pursuit near Eastlink. Senior Constable Chris Hurwood, of Somerville Highway Patrol, wants to speak to the driver of the truck who slowed down and flashed his lights at the Hyundai as he travelled east along Thompsons Road between the Frankston Freeway and Eastlink. The driver, or anyone who knows him, can email Somerville Highway Patrol on VP37732@ police.vic.gov.au

Police were told the man appeared to lose control before his car left the road and crashed into a tree. He died at the scene. Anyone who saw the crash is asked to contact Crime Stoppers 1800 333 000 or submit a confidential crime report at crimestoppersvic.com.au

Shoplifter sought A WOMAN, pictured below, who may have been involved in two thefts from a Rye delicatessen is being sought by police. The first theft occurred on Wednesday 30 May and the second on Sunday 17 June. On each occasion the value of the theft was about $150. Anyone knowing the woman is asked to call Senior Constable Deidre Musgrave at the Rosebud police station, 5986 0444, or Crime Stoppers 1300 333 000.

Woman dies A WOMAN in her late 70s died when she became trapped under a car in the driveway of her Mornington home last Friday morning. Sergeant Kylie Vaughan, of Mornington police, said the woman’s husband, also in his 70s, was parking the car at their Strachans Road property on Friday 22 June when she became pinned underneath. Mornington and Dromana CFA, ambulance crews and police rushed to the scene and used lifting equipment to raise the car but the woman had died as a result of her injuries. Sergeant Vaughan said it was unlikely any charges would be laid over the “tragic accident”. The police will prepare a report for the coroner.

Peninsula Quarries Community Engagement Group grants program Peninsula Quarries Victoria services the development and civil infrastructure industry in the southeast region with a wide range of quarry material and products. It is an important supplier for infrastructure projects such as road building and liners for sewerage ponds. The company employ experts in their field to ensure the highest level of quality control and consistency in the products supplied. Peninsula Quarries established the Peninsula Quarries Community Engagement Group (PQCEG) to engage with the local community. As part of the committee’s work, the PQCEG announces its grants program and calls for applications. The PQCEG determined that grants are available for environmental projects to be undertaken within the Somerville, Tyabb or Mornington region. Local not-for-profit groups are invited to submit an application for a grant from the PQCEG. Organisations are required to be incorporated entities. The total pool available is $5,000 per annum so applications should not exceed that amount and recurrent funding will not be provided.

Chaplain’s support for sport By Barry Irving

PASTORAL care and support for members of football and netball clubs is the focus of a partnership between Rye Football Netball Club and Sports Chaplaincy Australia. The partnership aims to help players, coaches, volunteers and parents when faced by such things as suicide, domestic violence, drug and alcohol abuse, mental health and other social and behavioural issues, when the first sign of a problem often comes after it is too late to help those involved. Rye’s first sports chaplain Pierre Uri will be a regular at home games and training nights. His will be a friendly face with who team members have chat. He will be a resource for young people feeling

challenged and in need of support. Mr Uri can also provide referrals through established links with relevant help agencies and support organisations. “This is such an exciting time for the MPNFL competition as it places one of the first volunteer chaplains on the peninsula,” AFL South Eastern Sports Chaplaincy Australia co-ordinator Bibe Brown said. “The demand for our chaplains reflects how excited and proud Rye FNC are to have us here. I look forward to placing more chaplains in the future.” The AFL South East SCA Club Care Access program began at the start of last year’s football season. It provides critical incident response support to clubs, and aims to place a volunteer sports chaplain in every club.

Keith Platt keith@mpnews.com.au STATE Planning Minister Richard Wynne has agreed to studies being undertaken into the environmental and social impacts likely to be caused by reopening the old Pioneer quarry in Boundary Road, Dromana. Owner Hillview Quarries asked Mr Wynne for permission to undertake an environmental effects statement (EES) into its reopening proposal as well as “doorknocking” neighbouring property owners. Mr Wynne is expected to soon release details of the draft scope, or extent, of the investigation required, known as "scoping requirements”. In letter to surrounding property owners Hillview CEO Paul Nitas said the minister’s decision meant his company would need to “conduct rigorous environmental investigations into potential impacts on flora and fauna, waterways, cultural heritage as well as social and economic impacts”. M Nitas described an EES as “a thorough assessment of environmental effects designed to give government decision makers the information they need to decide whether a project with potential environmental effects should proceed”. He said the minister’s “scoping requirements” would be released for public comment for at least 15 business days before the final scoping requirements are determined and published. “Hillview will be required to carry out the investigations necessary to satisfy all of the scoping requirements,” Mr Nitas stated in his letter to property owners. “Once the investigations are carried out, reports are prepared and the EES documentation is complete the documentation will be available for public review and a submission process, ultimately

including a public hearing.” Mr Nitas said Hillview was “very happy to answer any questions” and said information about the process was available on the government EES website (planning.vic.gov.au/environmentassessment/environment-assessment-home). Mr Nitas last month said Hillview’s existing quarry, in Hillview Quarry Drive, was likely to run out of rock within seven or eight years with current annual extraction levels of 750,000 tonnes (“Moves to reopen quarry” The News 1/5/18). He estimated the former Pioneer quarry, which Hillview wants to reopen, could supply one million tonnes of rock for 70 years. Mornington Peninsula Shire is one of the company’s biggest customers. Hillview Quarries is part of the RE Ross Trust which since 1970 has donated $110 million – including $10m on the Mornington Peninsula – to charities, education and environmental projects across Victoria, focusing on children at risk, education, arts and culture and nature. The latest bid to reopen the former Pioneer quarry follows a determination by the Victorian Civil Administrative Tribunal (VCAT) in April 2017 that the quarry’s planning permit had expired (“VCAT ‘no’ to quarry permit” The News 9/5/17). At that time community groups hailed the decision as a victory, although one leading campaigner cautioned, “we’ve won a battle, but not the war”. “We’re over the moon and I’d love to think that was the end, but I think it will go on,” Dr Mark Fancett, of the Sheepwash Creek Catchment Landcare group said. Five years ago the protesters successfully campaigned against the quarry being used as a rubbish tip.


Cyclist mourned in wake of five fatalities ABOUT 100 cyclists rode in the name of road safety on Saturday 16 June when The White Bike Foundation and Mornington Cycling Club staged their third memorial ride for Joel Hawkins. Their destination was the ghost bike honouring the memory of the Mt Martha 17-year-old who was struck and killed on the Nepean Highway at Ponderosa Place, Dromana, 17 June 2015. The annual memorial ride took place just days after five road users died on Victorian roads, including a 61-year-old cyclist who was struck by a truck at Moorooduc, about 16 kilometres from the site of Hawkins’ death and almost three years to the day later. “Our energy and thoughts go out to all those affected by the recent crashes – and all road fatalities – especially the family and loved ones of those directly involved,” The White Bike Foundation director Chris Savage said. “We launched the foundation in March to educate and protect all road sharers and prevent tragic incidents – like these – occurring on Australian roads.” Mr Savage said the media had focused on the “so-called war between motorists and cyclists”. “There is no war. We are all people, we all bleed and we all just want to get home safely,” he said. The foundation launched its road safety awareness campaign on 17 March and then delivered a message to Flinders MP Greg Hunt MP at Par-

Family and friends gather around the White Bike at Dromana after their memorial ride for fellow cyclist Joel Hawkins who died three years ago after colliding with a van. Pictures: Supplied

liament House, Canberra: “There are 86,400 seconds in one day. Pause and take two to make the safest decision for all road users. #think2.” Mr Savage said the foundation aimed to educate and protect all road users by encouraging respect, mindfulness and patience, and to work with schools and like-minded organisations to drive cultural and legislative change. Its first ambassador, Robbie Peime, returned from his maiden Ironman tri-

athlon in Cairns to join the Saturday ride on a handcycle. Still-grieving parents Graeme and Trudi Lowndes came from Bendigo and participate in the Hawkins memorial ride. Their son Jason was killed on a training ride near Bendigo in December. “Accepting the loss of Joel doesn’t get any easier with time, but The White Bike Foundation is working extremely hard to make a major change. Hopefully, that will mean

less families have to go through the pain we face every day,” Joel’s father Leslie Hawkins said. Joel’s mother, Liza Hawkins: “We are so grateful to everybody who continues to keep the memory of our beautiful son alive. “The work that the foundation does helps to bring us strength in the darkest of times. Hopefully, it does the same for Graeme and Trudi Lowndes, and for all those families suffering the anguish of losing a loved one too

early due to the irresponsible actions of another person on the road.” Mornington Cycling Club president Bruce Trew: “Joel was a fantastic lad and a well-respected and extremely talented member of the MCC. Safety was always a priority and Joel was pedantic with lights, fluorescent clothing and keeping to cycle lanes where possible. He took all the precautions he could three years ago, but it wasn’t enough.” Stephen Taylor

Winter Special Celebration: Mabel Blum celebrates her 100th birthday with with grandson Colin, top, at a family party on Sunday. Above, Allan and Grace Dicker with their children Laura, Mabel, Howard and Doris in 1924, at Highfield Poultry Farm, Warrandyte Road, Baxter. Pictures:Supplied

Centenarian’s lifelong link with Baxter FAMILY and friends celebrated the centenary of long-time Baxter and Somerville resident Mabel Grace Blum at Somerville Bowling Club on Sunday 24 June. The mother of five, grandmother of 10, and great-grandmother of 10, was born on her parents’ poultry farm on Hendersons Road, Baxter, on 27 June 1918 – the same year the area known as Mornington Junction was renamed Baxter. Her parents, Allan and Grace Dicker, attended the progress association meeting of that year which voted to adopt the name of Baxter. Following on from this, Ms Blum was a guest of honour at the Baxter centenary celebrations in her own centenary year. Ms Blum’s paternal grandparents Thomas and Louisa Dicker established an orchard in Somerville in 1896. Her maternal grandparents Stephen and Sarah Vinecombe moved to Mornington Junction from Nhill by bullock and dray in 1907. Of her eight great-grandparents, five migrated to Australia between 1840 and 1853. The re-

maining three were here before the 1830s. In the late 1930s Ms Blum met her husband Bill Blum, of Langwarrin, and they bought a 20-hectare bush block from her father. For three years, while Mr Blum served in World War II, she lived in a two-room house with three children under five without electricity, running water, telephone or transport. On Mr Blum’s return they cleared the block by hand and eventually established the dairy farm Blueberry Hill Jersey Stud. They also achieved success over the decades exhibiting champion dairy cattle at the Royal Melbourne Show and country shows around Victoria. After her husband’s death in 1982, Ms Blum and son Ken continued the dairy farm until, being one of the last in the area, the local supplier would no longer collect their milk. So, after 70 years of living in Baxter, she moved to Somerville to begin a new phase of her life, becoming involved in community activities, including Somerville Bowling Club and Frankston Hospital Ladies Auxiliary.

Airshow donates another $50,000 By Ian Johnson - Peninsula Aero Club ON Saturday Peninsula Aero Club held an open day for the community to celebrate the success of the 2018 Tyabb Air Show “War & Peace” and despite the cold weather a good crowd attended. The Air Show was enjoyed by a record crowd and as a result the club was able to donate a record amount to community groups. Over $100,000 has now been raised in past 24 months from Tyabb air shows, of which $50,000 has gone to support those with disabilities or mental health issues. Peninsula Aero Club continues a tradition, started almost 50 years ago when their first air show was held to raise funds for the world’s first fully equipped helicopter air ambulance, ‘The Angel of Mercy’ that initially operated from Tyabb. All air shows since have benefited the local community groups. The Hon. Greg Hunt. MP, presented a $25,000 cheque to John Suttie from Riding for the Disabled who said that money was of immense benefit as RDA had over 30 horses to maintain and feed. John said RDA was delighted with the exposure RDA received at the Air Show. He also stated it had greatly increased the profile of this valuable organization that provides so much joy and happiness to a group of Mornington Peninsula residents who face severe difficulties. Interestingly John Suttie was one of Greg Hunt’s school teachers, and it is obvious from this photo it was a happy re-union. All recipients spoke of their appreciation for PAC running the Air Shows and the funding they received as it helps them undertake their beneficial community work.

Recipients of Air Show proceeds: (l to r), Jayden Boyde and Mykhala Boyde from Australian Air League, John Suttie from Riding for the Disabled, Ian Davey from Mt Eliza Lions Club, Doug Taylor from Tyabb Football & Netball Club, Steve Birkenshaw from Tyabb CFA, and Julie Morris from Mornington Peninsula Shire Council.

100 YEARS AGO THIS WEEK...

Freak accident at Crib Point Base

Compiled by Brodie Cowburn A SEVERE and painful accident occurred at Crib Point Naval Base last week, by which Mr R. Brown, of Bittern, sustained severe injuries. He was attending to some machinery, when, by some means, his clothes became entangled, and they were practically stripped off him before assistance arrived. The services of Mr Prince, of the First Aid, were obtained, and he advised medical treatment. On the arrival of Dr Atkinson, the sufferer was found to have several ribs broken, and the body severely bruised. He was ordered to the Melbourne hospital, where he is now progressing as well as can be expected. *** LIEUTENANT Claude Grice, son of Mr James Grice, “Moondah”, Frankston who was wounded in France recently, is, we are pleased to state, improving, and has been removed front France to a London hospital. *** A FOOTBALL match between Frankston and Hastings juniors was played at Frankston on Saturday. last. Frankston again proved too good for the visitors, who were defeated by 24 points, the final scores being Frankston 6.11. Hastings 3.5. *** AT the Frankston Court of Petty Sessions, held on Monday last, before Messrs Oates (chairman) Williams and Grant, J’s.P., a youth named George Vivian, 18 years was charged with stealing a cash drawer from the goods shed at the Frankston railway station, on the night of 18th June.

The accused pleaded guilty, and was sentenced to three month’s imprisonment the bench recommending that he be given into the charge of a reformatory. *** RECOGNISING the splendid work done by the Frankston Wattle Club in entertaining wounded soldiers, and the consequently heavy expenses incurred by the club, the Moonee Valley racing club recently decided to donate £50 to the club funds, and a cheque for that amount has now been received by the secretary, Mrs. A. G. Wilcox — Further donations of a similar nature would be welcomed. *** A HIGH tribute was paid by the Minister of Defence, on Tuesday, to the excellence of the curative work which is being carried out by the Victorian military authorities at the Langwarrin detention camp. Senator Pearce visited the camp in the morning, accompanied by the Acting State Commandant (BrigadierGeneral Williams). He subsequently stated that it had afforded him great pleasure to discover how well the camp was being conducted. Since he last visited the place vast improvements had been effected, and the demeanor and discipline of the patients was all that could be desired. He thought that the manner in which the camp is now being conducted was an object lesson in humane and sympathetic administration of a very difficult problem. *** A PUBLIC meeting under the auspices of the W.C.T.U. with the

cooperation of the I.O.R was held in the Mechanics’ hall, Frankston, on Tuesday evening, June 25th Rev E. Tonkin presided. The meeting opened with the hymn “Onward Christian Soldiers”, followed by a prayer by the President. The chairman, after a few well chosen remarks, introduced Mrs Vaughan, of South Australia, who spoke of her war work in England among the soldiers. *** THE Frankston Y.P.S.C.E. will hold their annual sale of gifts today (Saturday) in the Methodist school room. It will be opened at 2pm by the Rev E. Tonkin, and will also be open in the evening, when a silver coin admission will be charged. The proceeds are in aid of the support of the missionary teacher at New Guinea. *** ON Friday, 3rd July, Messrs T. R. B. Morton and Son, under instructions from the Equity Trustees Company will sell two farm properties at Hastings, the property of the late Mr Thomas Hogan. Furniture, vehicles, etc., will also be offered. Full particulars appear in our advertising columns *** A CLEARING sale will be conducted by Messrs Alex Scott and Co at Balnarring on Saturday next, July 6th, when they will sell on account of Mr E. R. Ridgers, horses, implements, furniture, etc. The sale will commence at one o’clock sharp, on the farm. Terms are cash, and every thing will be sold

without reserve.

*** AN old colonist in the person of Augusta Sophia Petrie, relict of the late James Petrie, died suddenly at Nurse Keogh’s private hospital on 11th June at the ripe old age at 88 years. The deceased lady, who was the mother of Mr D. H. Petrie, of Frankston, came to Victoria over 80 years ago, and her grandfather came to New South Wales over 100 years ago, and held the position of Deputy Commissary General of New South Wales for over 20 years. *** IT is quite a long time since an entertainment has been held in the Tyabb hall in aid of other than patriotic funds, but on Friday evening last the Church of England Ladies Guild held a very successful concert in aid of the Church building fund. A splendid programme was submitted mostly of local talent assisted by some first class artists from the Langwarrin Camp. The hall was comfortably filled, and the chair was occupied by Rev. M Coates. The Old Scholars Club again staged a side-splitting farce which greatly amused the whole audience as also did Smith and Lamb, the Comedy Twins from Langwarrin. *** ACCORDING to Dr J. S. Duvel, of the United States Department of Agriculture, America has already made great sacrifices for feeding the men at the front, and has sent to Great Britain 200,000,000,000 bushels of wheat out of her savings. ***

DEPOSITORS in the State Savings Bank are reminded by advertisement that the examiner (Mr G. B. Williams) will be in attendance at the bank on Tuesday, 2nd July, for the annual inspection of passbooks. It is particularly desired that depositors should produce their passbooks at this time. *** BY advertisement in another column Messrs Brody and Mason announce that, having secured the services of Mr Esmond Russell, accountant, they are prepared to undertake the preparing of income and land tax returns, balance and adjust trade books, etc. *** FOR SALE—A Violin. good old instrument, Stradivarius Model, Bow, Case and Music Stand—BRODY & MASON. *** WANTED TO BUY—Green 5ft Wood Messmate or Peppermint, stacked Station Yard. Moorooduc, 6s per ton—D. KELLY, Saw Mill Moorooduc. *** To the Ratepayers of the East Riding. LADIES and GENTLEMEN,—In response to requests of many ratepayers of above Riding. I have decided to become a CANDIDATE at forthcoming Election to be held in August next.—Yours, &c., H. E. UNTHANK. Hastings. 25th June, 1918. *** From the pages of the Mornington Standard, 29 June 1918

MPs ‘addicted’ to corporate subsidies It is becoming increasingly evident that we no longer have a democracy. I am a resident of Crib Point and along with many others am opposed to AGL’s plan to install a LNG import terminal at Woolley͛ s Beach. Not only will it threaten the fragile ecological systems of Western Port, a UNESCO designated RAMSAR wetland, but I believe it will jeopardise local residents’ safety, quality of life and property values. Among other ministers, I wrote to [Energy, Environment and Climate Change minister] Lily D’Ambrosio several months ago and received a response from her office claiming that this is a “market driven” proposal. When we inquired with the Mornington Peninsula Shire Council and Flinders MP Greg Hunt, they referred us to the AGL website for information. Recently on ABC radio’s Jon Faine morning show the Premier Daniel Andrews admitted that there is no gas shortage in Victoria (AGL’s main selling point) and gleefully added “there’s no taxpayers’ money in this”. But he didn’t take into account the long term and irreversible costs of environmental degradation to the lives of local residents and beyond. The two major parties - our elected representatives - are rendered impotent by their addiction to corporate subsidies. Large corporations exploit the environment for the interests of a handful of ultra-wealthy individuals and anxious shareholders for a vast and cumulative expense to the lives of local people and the environment, a priceless asset. Candy Spender van Rood, Crib Point

Reappoint CEO Why do our current crop of Mornington Peninsula Shire councillors make big decisions and ignore facts which cost ratepayers a lot of money? Recently council agreed to a 50 metre pool when the facts presented in the business case clearly showed the $41.5 million cost was not justified. Now it is going to advertise the position of CEO Carl Cowie, which again smacks of totally disregarding the facts of his impressive performance since he was appointed (“Market test for CEO’s job” The News 19/6/18). Since Mr Cowie’s appointment he has accomplished: n A new EBA disposing of onerous sick leave. n Debt will be paid down to $12m by June 2018 from $43m. n Rosebud pool site selected at Besgrove Street. Savings by outsourcing management of Pelican Park Recreation Centre, Hastings and three

other sporting centres. n Insurance re-tendered resulting in savings so far of $3.4m. n Interim approval of the Sorrento Heritage Precinct Plan and approval of Hastings, Rye, Dromana and other township plans. n LED street lighting and solar panels on council buildings and a shire finance scheme enabling businesses to borrow to invest in rooftop solar panels. The culture of the shire has changed significantly and it is now refreshing when our organisation is involved with projects that there is a will to get things done on budget and on time. This change has been driven by Mr Cowie, who comes from a business background and has instilled commercial management practices into the shire. It is of great concern that a panel involving three councillors will make the selection and recommendation to council from the applicants, including Mr Cowie, who has indicated he will re-apply. If he is not appointed it will open the question of whether these councillors may have had a personal bias against the CEO. Colin Watson, president Nepean Ratepayers Association

Calculable losses I think [Mornington Peninsula Shire mayor] Cr Bryan Payne needs his head read to encourage CEO Carl Cowie to reapply for his job (“Market test for CEO’s job” The News 19/6/18). And in doing so he can hold hands with [Mornington Peninsula] ratepayers’ association secretary Dr Alan Nelson. If both gentlemen would take out a calculator and add up the costs that the Cowie executives spend on consultants, payouts and fruitless investigations into new asset management systems that never eventuate and a new phone system that never worked. There is a group of streamlined, ill-fitting suit wearing conformists who say yes to everything out of fear that they will be walking the plank. Why wouldn’t you reapply for a $400,000 a year job? Clem Unger, Mornington

Answer to refugees Most Australians well know that separating children from their parents and family networks causes long term damage. Even the president of the United States has decided to allow children to stay with their parents while the Mexican border assessments occur. A political response to the overwhelming opposition to a cruel policy - a change to his past rhetoric - he announced that the change does not

undermine strong borders. Donald Trump has previously said that our government is harsher than his. Australia has held many people in offshore detention for more than five years, with little recourse to any hope for their futures or those of their families. Mental and physical health have caused death. But not even another death this week of a refugee man on Nauru, nor reports of illness and mismanagement of those requiring medical attention, seem sufficient reasons to be compassionate. There are still 137 children on Nauru. Family members are still not permitted to be united. And our politicians from both main parties show no heed to change these bad policies. Many Australians ask: What does it take for our politicians to change their cruel and unnecessarily harsh policies towards refugees? It is possible to close the offshore centres and bring the people here, or at least find other appropriate third countries (like New Zealand and Canada) which are willing to participate, and ensure the US fulfils the commitment it has made. It is also possible to negotiate a regional international response. And it is possible to allow refugees to settle safely in our communities. We know that the sky will not fall in. Ann Renkin, Shoreham

Altruism rewards I have recently relocated from the Mornington Peninsula to the Fleurieu Peninsula south of Adelaide. The same attributes exist: great beaches, cafes, golf courses. I am inspired by the ambiance of the Fleurieu, even the battlers are happy it seems. Volunteers are critical to this great ambiance. As a parting gesture I want to write about altruism that is seeking the welfare of others. Volunteers should be lauded at every opportunity. For eight seasons in the 1960s I umpired footy on the Mornington Peninsula. If I arrived to do an early game at 11am at Rye, Chelsea, Langwarrin or Seaford there they were, the mums supporting their boys and making food they can sell to give money to support the club. This is a grand example of altruism, and volunteers who altruistically seek to support others not expecting any reward other than the joy of doing so. In Frankston, I was for more than four years one of the facilitators of Dads in Distress, which gave me great insight into the work of those volunteers who supported the disadvantaged, the homeless and the “broken” people and sought no plaudits for it just love for their fellow man. How good was the Bishop Michael Curry’s message at the Royal wedding: ”The power of love to heal when nothing else can.” There must be many people who would love to give vent to their nobler motives but, on account of their day to day lives, they cannot. The joy of altruism can be undertaken by “random acts of kindness and senseless acts of beauty” (Anne Herbert 1982). Similarly Ralph Waldo

Emerson wrote: “You cannot do kindness too soon as it may be too late.” In this “it’s about me” world I am trying to remember to always be kinder than I may feel. Tony Nicholl, Normanville, South Australia

Suffer the lambs Sheep have featured in the news recently, unfortunately for all the wrong reasons. The spotlight has fallen on the appalling cruel live export trade and rightly so. Information about wedge-tailed eagles feeding on baby lambs is not surprising as they are birds of prey and opportunistic feeders (“Eagles kill livestock” Letters 29/5/18). What may be lesser known and surprising to most of us is the mortality of 10-15 million lambs born in winter so we can eat spring lambs. These are industry figures. The industry accepts this massive death rate as the cost of doing business so that the lambs feed on the spring grass rather than having to buy feed in summer. You won’t hear these statistics mentioned in the Australia Day lamb promotions. Baby lambs pay an enormous price to satiate our taste buds. John J Blair, Dromana

Wool over our eyes Drought: the word causes shivers of fear in many Australians, particularly those in the bush. A 2015 poll found that people were more worried about drought than any other consequence of climate change. Now farmers are complaining that the big dry means that they are having to “de-stock” or, in plain English, kill thousands of animals even earlier than they would usually be killed. Meat and Livestock Australia have revised the number of lambs that will be slaughtered this year to 22.85 million, while sheep slaughter is expected to reach 7.8 million, totalling an astonishing 30,665,000 animals, most of them little more than babies. Many of these animals will have suffered barbaric treatments such as mulesing, ear-tagging and castration, and will have been repeatedly mutilated during shearing. The Climate Council has concluded that droughts are likely to worsen in severity and duration in southern Australia if greenhouse gas emissions are not cut deeply and rapidly. The quickest way to achieve this is to eliminate the wool and sheep meat industries. These businesses add significantly to greenhouse emissions through “enteric fermentation,” or animals belching and passing gas, as well as causing vegetation change and soil erosion and water pollution through faecal contamination and sheep dips. For the farmers, it’s an easy equation: if you can’t feed them, don’t breed them. The rest of us can take a stand for animals, and help to preserve natural ecosystems by not buying woollen garments, and not eating baby lambs.

CALIFORNIA’S RADIO MOSCOW HITS VICTORIA US Blues Rock Royalty Head Down Under With ‘New Beginnings’ California power-trio Radio Moscow have just announced their return to Australia with a two week tour planned for down under in just a few weeks.

THE MEANING OF EXISTENCE... AND OTHER SHORT STORIES

For Those About to Collect Rocks – We Salute You By Stuart McCullough IT was a result of panic, more than anything. My father had very strong views on pretty much everything, including the importance of having a hobby. I, however, felt that lying on a beanbag and staring out the window was as legitimate a hobby as any my father might care to suggest. He was having none of it. So far as he was concerned, I needed to nail my colours to the mast and, preferably, put the hammer back exactly where I found it. That’s how I decided to collect rocks. I know what you’re thinking – how can anyone do something so boring? For alleged fun? Before you scoff too loudly, I should reveal that collecting rocks was my way out of having to collect stamps. Compared to collecting stamps, rock collecting is a veritable avalanche of pleasure. My father was a stamp collector. He probably still is, but I never ask him about his collection and he never talks about it in public. It had been a childhood passion he was keen to pass on. It became something I was eager to resist. As a child of the seventies, television was my abiding passion. This was confusing to my father, who had gone through childhood before TV existed and couldn’t understand my fascination for it. We were told that watching too much TV would make our eyes go square and turn our brains to little more than overcooked cabbage. ‘Chewing gum for the eyes’, he called it. It felt incredibly unjust. Spending time on my stamp collection meant valuable hours of television viewing were forever lost.

It was always arbitrary. One moment we’d be watching ‘Happy Days’. The next, my father would appear and announce that tonight was the night we’d collect stamps. Before I could say, ‘Sit on it, bucko’, the set would be switched off and my brother and I

were ushered into the study to begin an interminable evening talking about stamps. For months, my father would dutifully intercept all incoming mail, rip off the right-hand corner of the envelope and then soak the stamp free in a small glass on the kitchen window

will. The results of all this effort were then dumped on the desk and we were expected to go through them. It felt pointless. Nevertheless, for a time I had a stamp collection. I probably still do. I doubt, very much, that there’s anything of great value there. It was after an evening of stamp collecting during which I was particularly forlorn that I was told I could pick another hobby if I was willing to break my father’s heart. Which, as it turns out, I was. I don’t know why I chose rock collecting except that it wasn’t stamp collecting and, on that basis, could only be an improvement. There is, I feel, a certain genius in rock collecting. For starters, they’re in abundant supply. You can barely step outside the door without tripping over one. They very low maintenance. You don’t need to feed them, water them or put them in an album. They’re also a multi-purpose collectible. You can keep them on a shelf and admire them whenever the mood strikes you, you can use them as paperweights or even use them to fend off a potential zombie invasion. Say what you will about stamps – they’re no good for repelling an attack by zombies. Having made my decision to collect rocks, I needed to do something to show this wasn’t all talk. Unfortunately, I knew very little about the subject. However, I was helped enormously after it was revealed that a friend of my mother’s was a geologist and had access to all kinds of high quality specimens. Quite frankly, they were awesome. Before long I was kneedeep in quartz, granite, basalt, shale and – my favourite – conglomerate.

The rocks sat on my bookshelf not doing very much for years. If there was a downside, it was that I was expected to hunt for rocks whenever the family went on holidays and to buy rock related souvenirs from the gift shop. It was a small price to pay. Once I discovered music, I forgot all about my rocks. Which is ironic, I guess, in that I gave up one kind of rock for another. Looking back on it, collecting rocks filled the all-important hobby-gap between childhood and adolescence. As for stamps, I don’t see them that often anymore. Before long, they’ll probably be extinct and that old stamp album will be worth something. Whereas the rocks will still just be rocks. They’re very reliable in that respect. My nephew Tyler had a birthday. He likes to collect rocks. I have no idea how he feels about stamps, but to celebrate we gave him a special rock-collecting satchel. It’s incredibly cool. It comes with a magnifying glass and a rock hammer that he can either use to break rocks or to escape from Shawshank prison. It is, I believe, his primary hobby. It’s great to have hobbies – passions that serve no purpose other than to satisfy our curiousity. There ought to be more of it. I should see if I still have anything from my old collection. I’m not sure where it is, but if I find it, I’ll be sure to mail it to him. I might even use every stamp in my collection to get it there. stuart@stuartmccullough.com

scoreboard Ladder leading Sharks outrun Redlegs WESTERN PORT

DIVISION ONE

By Brodie Cowburn SORRENTO Sharks have survived an almighty scare courtesy of Mt Eliza, but held on to claim all four points in their top of the ladder clash at Emil Madsen Reserve. Mt Eliza were fighting for the top position on the ladder, and had their chances boosted by the absence of Sorrento forward Chris Dawes. In wet conditions, Mt Eliza raced out of the gates to establish an early lead over Sorrento, going into the quarter time break with a 14 point lead. The Redlegs were well on top throughout the day, applying more tackles and playing more direct football, which proved to be a smart tactic in the wet weather. Going into threequarter time, Mt Eliza were comfortably 16 points ahead, and Sorrento looked dead and buried. After the final break, Sorrento’s Hallahan brothers came alive in stunning fashion, combining to quickly put a few goals on the board and inject some life into the contest. Mt Eliza were stunned by the way Sorrento played in the final term, with the Sharks dominating centre clearances and showing the class of a premiership team. The Sharks quickly established a lead, and Mt Eliza could do nothing to stop the onslaught of goals. The final quarter ended up being a six goal to one blitz, and Sorrento eventually ran over the top of Mt Eliza in a 10.10 (70) to 13.7 (85) win. Leigh Poholke continued his good run of form with five goals for Sor-

rento, all scored at important moments when the game was hanging in the balance. The win puts Sorrento two games clear of Mt Eliza at the top of

the ladder. One of Sorrento’s best was playing coach Luke Tapscott, who made his return from injury on Saturday. Tapscott

said that while it was good to get the win, there was still plenty of work to do. “We were happy with the four points, but we got away with playing one quarter of footy,” he said. “That’s not how you want to play when you’re on the road. We did start well but we just fell asleep until the last quarter. We’re happy to get away with the win, but I’m not all that happy about the way we went about it.” Sorrento will travel to play Rosebud next Saturday. At John Coburn Oval, Frankston YCW were looking to break their four game losing run against last place Seaford. Both sides struggled to adapt to the conditions in the first term, with neither side putting a goal on the scoreboard by the first break of play. In the second term Sorrento made a breakthrough and kicked the first goal of the game, but unfortunately the game came to a sudden stop before either side could kick another. An injury to Frankston YCW’s Luke Paynter required an ambulance to be called, and the game was abandoned before half time. The league has ruled that because there had been less than a half of football played, both teams would share the points. At Greg Beck Oval, the Frankston Bombers hosted a Mornington side that has been in impressive form.

The contest looked one sided right from the first bounce, as the Bombers put the injury depleted Bulldogs to the sword with a dominant five goals to zero first quarter. Frankston Bombers continued to pile on the misery in the second quarter, and went into half time with a 41 point lead. Although Mornington were able to restore some respectability with a valiant second half showing, they went down to an impressive Bombers outfit 16.10 (106) to 9.6 (62). Samuel Fox booted five goals for Frankston, while Jason Kingsbury kicked three and was among the best players on the field. In Saturday’s final clash, Bonbeach took on Rosebud at Rosebud Recreation Reserve. Both sides looked evenly matched throughout the contest, with the lead only standing at one point in Rosebud’s favour at the three-quarter time break. Rosebud ran over the top of Bonbeach in the final quarter, registering nine scoring shots to three in a completely one sided showing. With a dominant final term, Rosebud secured their third win for the season running out 8.11 (59) to 10.11 (71) winners. Thomas Stoffels was again among the best for Rosebud, scoring a game high three goals to help his side to victory.

Red Hill continue their rampant run DIVISION TWO

By Brodie Cowburn RED Hill have secured their fifth consecutive win in MPNFL Division Two football, continuing their rampaging run with a big win over Hastings. Hasting started well and kept in touch with Red Hill in the first quarter, but the game would not stay competitive for much longer. By the three-quarter time break, Red Hill had established a comfortable 32 point lead and put the game to rest. A six goal to one final term only made the pain worse for Hastings as they went down in an uncompetitive clash 7.5 (47) to 17.7 (109). Chris Irving and Jonathon Ross both starred with six goals each for Red Hill, with their side sitting comfortably at fourth spot on the ladder. At Ballam Park Reserve, Karingal flexed their muscle with a dominating victory over Crib Point. A six goal to two first quarter set the tone for a completely one sided game, with Karingal dominating their lowly Crib Point opponents. It was a complete team performance for the Bulls, who had eleven individual goalkickers throughout their side. The win sees Karingal secure second spot on the ladder, as they claimed an astonishing 98 point victory 20.13 (133) to 5.5 (35). At Bunguyan Reserve, 11th placed Tyabb hosted ladder leaders Dromana in a match that looked uncompetitive on paper. Despite coming in as massive underdogs, the Yabbies raised eyebrows by

Slippery when wet: After bursting out of the blocks, Tyabb eventually went down to Dromana. Picture: Andrew Hurst

battling hard in the first term, and they even went into the quarter time break with a narrow one point lead. A shell shocked Dromana came out in the second quarter determined to make amends for their sloppy first term, as they tightened up in defence and held Tyabb scoreless for the quarter. Dromana continued to make life miserable for the Yabbies, who could only manage one more solitary goal for the remainder of the game. Despite the early scare Dromana battled back well to show their quality and secure a comfortable victory away

from home. The final score was 2.11 (23) to 11.11 (77) in Dromana’s favour. Elsewhere at Glover Reserve, Chelsea put on a clinical performance as they continued their good season against Devon Meadows. Devon Meadows looked as if they might send their fans home with smiles on their faces after an impressive first term, going into the first break with a two point lead. After the first break, the Seagulls kicked things up another gear by holding Devon Meadows goalless in the second term. With a comfortable 16 point buffer established, Devon Mead-

ows had been put on the back foot, and they struggled to work their way back into the game. Regular goalkickers Jack Francis and Curtis Bywater contributed for Chelsea with five goals between them, as their side claimed the four points with a 9.8 (62) to 13.11 (89) win. At RJ Rowley Reserve, Rye heaped more misery on a disappointing Pearcedale season by claiming a comfortable 51 point win. Pearcedale looked up to the contest up until half time, as they only trailed by a mere three points at the main break. After half time, Rye quickly put

the game to bed with an impressive five goals to zero third quarter. Rye were a little more competitive in the final term, but could not bounce back from their disappointing third quarter, as they went down to Rye 14.16 (100) to 7.7 (49). Ben Trivett and Leigh Morse were among Rye’s best, as they kicked two goals each in impressive performances. Struggling Pearcedale are set to receive a welcomed boost, with former North Melbourne and West Coast Eagles tall forward Drew Petrie scheduled to play for them in a one off appearance against Devon Meadows at home next Saturday. Pearcedale also recruited Barry Hall for a similar cameo appearance last season. In the final game for the weekend Somerville hosted Langwarrin at Somerville Recreation Reserve. Langwarrin came into the clash full of confidence, coming off a big victory over Tyabb last weekend. Led by star goalkicker Jesse Murphy, they established an early lead and kept Somerville out of reach for most of the day. Murphy booted six goals to take his tally for the year to 46, as his Langwarrin side secured the win 7.12 (54) to 9.12 (66). Langwarrin now sit in sixth place on the ladder after an inconsistent season so far. They sit six points behind fifth placed Hastings, and will need some results to go their way before climbing up the ladder.

Five-star Pines, Johnston steps down SOCCER

By Craig MacKenzie A SUPERB first half-display from Frankston Pines and the shock resignation of Peninsula Strikers president Trevor Johnston were the big talking points to emerge from last weekend’s round of matches. Pines blitzed Heatherton United early and led 4-0 at the interval eventually running out an easy 5-0 winner. Ben Millward opened the scoring in the 13th minute and two minutes later CJ Hodgson struck. When Lewis Potter headed home from a set piece in the 31st minute Heatherton was staring down the barrel and Hodgson was at the back post right on half-time to drive another nail into the visitors’ coffin. Mitch Lander and Hodgson were constant threats as Pines exploited Heatherton on the break and Lander rounded off the scoreline in the 68th minute to provide gaffer Paul Williams with his biggest win of the season. “What pleased me most was the confidence this win will give the lads as we’ve had some good performances this season but here we turned a good performance into a great result,” Williams said. State 2 South-East neighbour Peninsula Strikers is in crisis following Johnston’s departure coupled with Saturday’s 4-1 home loss to Brandon Park which anchors the club to the foot of the league ladder. Two goals from Hamlet Armenian and one from Josh Caruana had Brandon Park in control before referee Brandon Smith reduced Strikers to 10 men when he ruled that Washid Rashimi had deliberately stopped a goalscoring opportunity and issued a straight red card in the 36th minute. Two minutes later Oscar Marsden made it 3-1 but Armenian completed his hat-trick in the 42nd minute. Strikers had planned to sign three players from Kingston City this week as well as Nat Daher from Langwarrin’s under-20s but there is uncertainty about those moves given Johnston’s departure. The club recently lost captain Ryan Wilson to Casey Comets after he turned his back on a substantial offer from Mornington. Johnston’s decision caught most observers by surprise. “There were a lot of things going on behind the scenes and there are a lot of cultural changes that need to be made,” Johnston said. “I’m proud of the fact that I got the club out of a massive financial hole but I can’t take them any further.

Pines pounce: Ben Millward (left), Ioasa Saemo (centre) and CJ Hodgson celebrate the opening goal at Monterey Reserve on Saturday. Picture: John Punshon

“I was doing so many things and the lack of support was disappointing. “I tried and tried but when it starts to affect your family, your kids, then it’s time to make some changes. “We’ve had five coaches in 12 months and quite frankly I can’t wait till next year with the potential to get someone of the calibre of Adam Jamieson to the club.” In NPL2 news Langwarrin travelled to Shepparton and came away with a point following Saturday night’s 1-1 draw with Goulburn Valley Suns. Alou Kuol gave the home side the lead after just six minutes but Suns keeper Fraser Greenwood handled outside his area and was sent off in the 22nd minute. Mehdi Sarwari’s low drive in the 35th minute made it 1-1 and shortly after Liam Baxter found the back of the net with a superb volley only to be controversially ruled offside. A bone-jarring tackle from substitute Frankie Lagana in the 60th minute saw the Suns reduced to nine men and despite Langy dominating possession three superb saves from Suns’ substitute keeper Lucas Enders kept the visitors at bay. Langy’s under-20s lost 4-3 but a scything challenge on 16-year-old Langy forward Keegan Guy forced his departure and incensed coach Kevin “Squizzy” Taylor. The referee didn’t deem the incident worthy of punishment however a few hours later Guy was in hospital being treated for an injury described as being more consistent with a car accident

In NPLW news Southern United lost 8-0 to championship challenger South Melbourne at Middle Park on Saturday. The last time these sides met South Melbourne won 13-1. Southern’s under-12s drew 2-2 with both Southern goals scored by Rhiannon Kelleher. Southern’s under-14s continued their march towards a second successive title by downing South Melbourne 3-0. Danica Vukcevic gave Southern a half-time lead and a highlight of the second half was a rare headed goal from last season’s Golden Boot winner Rhys McKenna. Taylah Hennekam scored Southern’s third goal. Southern’s under-16s lost 3-0 while the under-19s lost 11-0. Meanwhile the NPL door is ajar for Manningham United after it increased its lead in State 1 South-East with a 1-0 home win over Mornington last weekend. Dean Lorenzi got the winner in the 48th minute. Mornington’s UK import Max Etheridge came off the bench in the second half after returning to Australia last week and is pushing for a spot in the starting line-up against Beaumaris this weekend.

stop Chris Wynne’s run on the right of the area and his cutback was slammed home low by Patrick O’Loughlin from 10 metres. Skye’s best chance of the first half came in the 23rd minute when Daniel Attard skinned a defender on the right and cut inside but his square ball to Mitch Blake was met with a sidefoot strike that sailed harmlessly over the bar. Attard, Blake and Jason Nowakowski all blew good chances to level and the goal that ended Skye’s chances came in the 72nd minute and completely bedazzled a ragged Skye defence. Scott surged forward and passed to substitute Shaun O’Rourke on the right and he cut inside before squaring the ball to McRae who first dummied to shoot then calmly slotted the ball past Crook for the clincher. Skye head coach Billy Armour didn’t mince his words after the loss. “The promotion push is over. It’s as simple as that. Right now our focus is on trying to finish in the top half of the table,” Armour said. Skye midfielder Marcus Collier is out for the season and may require surgery to repair his ACL. In State 4 South news Baxter lost 2-1 away to Monash Uni last weekend. There were few clear-cut chances in the first half and the deadlock was broken by a long drive into the top corner from Miles Rodriguez in the 63rd minute. Baxter equalised four minutes later with a clever finish from just outside the area by substitute Ben Meiklem.

The visitors were caught napping in the 80th minute when a quick free-kick sent Monash substitute Stephen Harvey clear and he slipped the ball under advancing Baxter keeper James Foster. Monash striker Sampath Mishra received two yellow cards in quick succession and was sent off late in the match. The big news at Baxter Park this week is the return of former senior coach Roy Kilner who becomes Francis Beck’s second assistant alongside Mitchell Ball. In State 5 South Somerville Eagles triumphed in a seven-goal thriller away to Rowville Eagles last Friday night. Somerville player-coach and league leading scorer David Greening had the visitors 2-0 up after 30 minutes with his second goal coming from the penalty spot. But two goals in a minute from Louis Palmire’s header and a Ruben Ichim chip drew the home side level. Rowville hit the front three minutes into the second half thanks to a stunning Ichim free-kick but an unstoppable leftfoot strike from outside the area from Greening secured his hat-trick. The master scorer wasn’t done with yet and in the 91st minute substitute Jarryd Lymer won a 50/50 challenge and Greening burst past two defenders and slotted home the winner to send Somerville supporters and players into wild celebration. “That was a fantastic advert for State 5 football tonight,” Greening sad. “The spirit we displayed to come back from going behind shows the character we have at this club and I couldn’t be more proud of them.” Aspendale lost its State 5 away clash with Casey Panthers 3-1. Domenic Paul scored from the penalty spot for Aspendale in the first half. Noah Berends, Pal Calvino and Paul were Aspendale’s best.

WESTERN PORT scoreboard

Miller’s soccer academy up and running By Craig MacKenzie FORMER Socceroos assistant coach Scott Miller is keen to provide elite soccer coaching for junior boys and girls throughout the Mornington Peninsula. Miller is the principal of Identity Pro Academy based at Toorak College in Mount Eliza. The former Fulham assistant and Newcastle Jets head coach returned from Denmark last year where he worked as an assistant coach at Aalborg BK. Miller is one of the highest credentialled coaches in Australian soccer and is contracted to Fox Sports as a football analyst. He holds an AFC Pro Diploma and a UEFA A-Licence as well as tertiary degrees in sports science and sport psychology and wants to impart his expertise to young local players. “Our community academy was created to provide opportunity to local Mornington Peninsula footballers by offering a holistic approach which will encapsulate coaching, skill, movement and high performance programs,” Miller said. “While it’s great to be home much more importantly it’s great to be able to create a platform for young footballers here in Australia and on the peninsula in particular.” Identity Pro’s 10-week program has a high performance component which includes injury prevention, football fitness and exclusive access to over 200 performance recipes available through the nutrition section of the academy’s website. Dandenong Thunder strength and conditioning coach Alistair Wallace has joined the academy’s coaching staff.

Identity Pro also offers a performance psychology component via winning mentality workshops and last week announced that it had partnered with Sports Performance Tracking to offer players real time feedback on the physical demands of the training sessions. There are only 40 places available for 20 boys and 20 girls aged 12 to 16. The boys’ program starts on Monday 23 July and the girls’ program starts on Thursday 26 July.

Identity Pro will also run a school holiday program at Baxter Soccer Club for ages eight to 14 on Monday 2 July. “It’s important to note that this is not an elite academy but instead it is open for all levels who want to improve and it is designed to provide an education of what is involved at an elite level without the pressure and expectation of having to perform,” Miller added. Identity Pro also offers an online subscription for players and clubs who can sign up for access to an exclusive video-based program. For more information about Identity Pro go to www.identitypro.com. au or email info@identitypro.com.au for registration enquiries.

THE Western Port Steelers were forced to work for it, but they have extended their winning streak to three games with a win over the Geelong Supercats in Men’s Division One Basketball this Saturday. Making the big trip to Geelong Arena, the Western Port Steelers were in good form heading into their clash with the Supercats, and would have been hopeful of a big victory. Sitting in 4th place on the table, two games clear of their nearest opponent, would have had them considered strong favourites in their match against 9th placed Geelong. However, the Supercats took the game to their opponents in the first quarter and showed they were no easy beats. A big third term was the highlight for the Supercats, as they went into the final quarter with the lead against their highly fancied Western Port opponents. The Steelers had their backs to the wall, but eventually recovered to overcome the deficit and run out narrow five point winners, Geelong Supercats (89) to Western Port Steelers (95). Dylan Travis was the standout for Western Port, dropping 39 points in a match winning performance for his side. The Steelers now only sit one win behind 3rd place Keysborough Cougars, but the Cougars have the advantage of having two games in hand. In women’s competition this weekend, the Mornington Breakers scored an upset in Division Two to knock off the Melbourne University Black Angels. The Breakers currently sit in 8th place after a

Rosebud Country Club takes up MND fight THE Inaugural MND (Motor Neurone Disease) Charity Golf Day which was held at Rosebud Country Club on Saturday 9 June. “We are thrilled to announce that $15,500 was raised which will be sent to FightMND and will go towards research, treatments and finding a cure for MND,” said RCC President John Sladdin. The event was aligned with FightMND “Big Freeze at the G” created by Neale Daniher, which falls on the Queen’s Birthday weekend each year.

widely inconsistent season, and were up against a Melbourne University side that was sitting pretty in 3rd place on the table. Playing away from home, the Breakers impressed by overpowering the Black Angels in the first half, establishing a six point lead at the half time break. Although Melbourne University fought back well in the third quarter, the Breakers proved too strong and secured a huge victory (36) to (48). Ashleigh Wright was the star player for the successful Mornington Breakers side, scoring 21 points and shooting at 54 percent from the three point line. Men’s Division Two featured an intriguing matchup between two sides placed alongside one another on the ladder, as 6th placed Melton Thoroughbreds played host to 5th placed Southern Peninsula Sharks. The Sharks looked more than up for the challenge in the first half, and went into the half time break with a six point lead over Melton. After the break, the Thoroughbreds kicked thing into another gear and started to assert control over the match. With the Sharks holding a narrow lead going into the final quarter, Melton had to dig deep to get a result, but dig deep they did. Melton outscored Southern Peninsula by ten points in the final quarter, and secured a nail biting come from behind victory (80) to (77). Dexter Graham scored 27 points shooting at 55 percent for the winners, while Corey Bond was the most impressive performer for Southern Peninsula with 23 points.

of RCC, and on behalf of the Board of Directors we sincerely thank Gordon for his kind donation,” said Mr Sladdin. The Mermet MND Cup – Suominen and Hodges Trophy, acknowledges RCC golfing members Rauno Suominen and Rob Hodges (pictured) who are fighting the terrible disease. The trophy was won by Paul Mills 42 pts and Gill Smallwood 39 pts. Rauno Suominen and Rob Hodges were in attendance at the presentation and President John Sladdin and wife Jenny Hodges delivered moving speeches on their behalf.
