5973 6424 or email: team@mpnews.com.au www.mpnews.com.au A SMOKING ceremony at Somerville Primary School last week was “one piece of a much larger picture at the school”, acting principal Andrew Haley said. Adam Magennis, of the Bunurong Land Council, conducted the ceremony at a special assembly with pupils’ involvement, Friday 23 March. “As a school we are focusing on acknowledging the traditional land owners, both past and present,” Mr Haley said. “It is vital as a school that we continue to raise awareness within our school community and acknowledge the Aboriginal people. “It is powerful for our students to know the customs and traditions of our traditional land owners and to know that we are on Bunurong land and that Bunurong land is for all of us to share. “We now proudly fly the Aboriginal and the Torres Strait Islander flags alongside the Australian flag at the front of the school. “The smoking ceremony officially marked the beginning this journey.” As part of the process, Somerville pupils will read an Acknowledgment of Country at the beginning of Friday assemblies. A Bunjil nest will be installed next term and pupils’ paintings and other works will go on display around the school.

Seeing red over house heights Stephen Taylor steve@mpnews.com.au RED balloons floated on 11-metre-long strings above Capel Sound last week to show how high the state government allows houses to go on the Mornington Peninsula without a permit. Mornington Peninsula Shire says the contentious rules imposed last year “without consultation” already apply to 24,000 housing sites on the peninsula. The figure represents a quarter of the

peninsula’s housing stock. The shire says the rules will lead to the proliferation of “three storey McMansions”. The mayor Cr Bryan Payne said Thursday’s balloon demonstration aimed to “alert the Victorian community to the threats to coastal villages posed by future inappropriate development”. “We want to demonstrate what the effect of the state government’s planning rules will be, and we will persist with the campaign until we get what we want,” he said.

“Residents will have no say in the planning process – they are as-ofright.” Villages and townships under threat include Capel Sound, Rosebud, Dromana, Mt Martha, Mornington, Baxter, Somerville, Tyabb, Hastings and Bittern. The shire wants the government to reintroduce the local planning statement which it believes has protected the “unique” character of the peninsula from inappropriate development since the 1970s.

“This planning policy is the thin edge of the Green Wedge and is a clear and present danger to the long-term planning of the peninsula's residential environments because of the domino impact,” Cr Payne said. “This is being experienced in other Melbourne suburbs where existing houses are being demolished and replaced by vastly oversized homes.” The mayor said Thursday’s protest was “excellent”. “Capel Sound is a typical singlestorey location which will suffer the

greatest impact from this type of overdevelopment,” he said. “We are concerned that the peninsula differs from normal suburbia. “For 30 years successive state governments have honoured that difference and kept it in a pristine way. “We feel that we are unique and don’t want to see our suburbs destroyed, like Camberwell, with over development. “We are complying with government ideals of growth but we want to be in control of that growth.”

Union moves to protect jobs at shire Keith Platt keith@mpnews.com.au THE Fair Work Commission may be asked to intervene in the “restructuring” of a department by Mornington Peninsula Shire. It is understood that the nearly 40-strong shire’s rangers and local laws team have been told they may be facing redundancies or have to reapply for their positions. Environment protection manager John Rankine told The News on Friday 9 March that the shire was yet to make a decision. “The shire is currently undertaking a consultation process with its staff and it is inappropriate to comment while the staff consultation phase is underway,” Mr Rankine said. “The shire respects the consultation process for its team members.” Mr Rankine did not respond to questions about why the changes were being made or if councillors had been told. Yesterday (Monday 26 March) Australian Services Union organiser Ty Lockwood said he would lodge a dispute application with the Fair

Work Commission if he was unable to reach agreement with the shire this week. He planned to meet later this week with Vicki Bishop, the shire’s change management facilitator. In a letter to compliance staff earlier this month Mr Lockwood said the shire’s restructure proposed making some positions redundant “and a number of newly created positions at a higher classification banding have been proposed as replacements”. He said the ASU had a “different view” to how the shire was implementing its “redeployment process”. The shire and the union has “respectfully agreed to disagree” on interpretations of the shire’s staff enterprise agreement. Mr Lockwood said any application to involve the Fair Work Commission would be aimed to resolving the dispute “as to not necessarily delay this process more than required”. “We understand this is an anxious time for all members involved and our aim is to handle this process with respect and to ensure job security is the highest priority,” he said.

Adelaide ties up in Western Port THE Royal Australian Navy’s largest warship HMAS Adelaide arrived in Port Melbourne on Friday after steaming from a temporary berth at HMAS Cerberus in Western Port. The Sydney-based frigate is 230 metres long and can transport 100 vehicles, 18 helicopters and 1000 troops.

Captain Jonathan Earley skippered the vessel in her first return to Melbourne since she was assembled at Williamstown in 2012. The visit allowed the navy to resupply the vessel and give its crew some shore leave at a time when the city was hosting the Formula One Grand Prix, AFL round one

and International Flower and Garden Show. The 400-strong crew was said to have been working hard in various exercises and in need of a well-deserved break. They waved goodbye on Sunday and headed up the east coast for training exercises. Picture: Gary Sissons

Outdoor artists move inside THE Easter weekend is starting indoors for a group of Mornington Peninsula artists who like to paint outdoors. Members of Peninsula Plein Air Painters begin their holiday weekend early with their annual exhibition opening on Thursday, March 29. Artist Miodrag Jankovic will officially open the exhibition being held at the Sorrento Activity Centre daily until Easter Monday. Members of the group can be seen on any Thursday at such scenic places as Mothers Beach, Mornington, Millionaires Walk, Portsea, Arthurs Seat or Cape Schanck. Plein air painting originated through

the French impressionists and notable Australian plein air landscape artists include McCubbin, Heysen, Roberts, Namatjira and Streeton. Today’s artists interpret the landscape in many bold and contemporary ways. Thursday’s official opening of works by the Peninsula Plein Air Painters will be celebrated with beer, wine and nibbles. Admission is $2 over the four days. The show is open from 10am until 4pm daily from Good Friday and 10pm until 2pm on Easter Monday. Sorrento Activity Centre is at the corner of Melbourne and Queens roads, Sorrento. Details: Maxine Wild 04902 86692.

GIFTS over the past three years to Mornington Peninsula Shire staff revealed in the much debated and now public gifts register range from a $1200 trip to Sydney to items valued at $2. Ten pages of the register from 4 September 2015 to 19 December 2017 show 69 gifts, three of which were declined. The register identifies the positions but not the names of staff declaring gifts or receiving offers of gifts. The $1200 “gift” was made by the US-owned Dell EMC information technology company for the shire’s chief information officer to attend an August 2017 forum in Sydney. The $2 items – a cloth glasses case and a necklace -were made to the mayor and council support officer by the Friends of Los Palos. The timeline of the register released to The Age newspaper under a Freedom of Information request covers July 2016 when shire CEO Carl Cowie and his wife spent time aboard a cruise ship in the Mediterranean hired by prominent businessman and Portsea property owner Lindsay Fox ("Shire boss on Fox ‘party’ cruise", The News 11/12/17). Mr Cowie maintains that he does not have to register the cruise as it was

made at no cost to council and during his annual leave. However, Mr Cowie has listed several items on the register, including an invitation to and his attendance at the 2015 October AFL Grand Final business lunch. The invitation to the lunch was made by the National Australia Bank and the estimated value of the gift is $300. The following year Mr Cowie accepted AFL Grand Final tickets ($100) from McArthur Management Services and “corporate football tickets” ($100) from Optus Australia. The same “gift” from Optus was made to and accepted by the shire’s chief information officer and manager aged disability. Mr Cowie “passed on” tickets ($200 each) to a Cricket Victoria function at the MCG to the infrastructure strategy manager and an undergraduate engineer. Other gifts accepted by Mr Cowie included two $200 tickets to a March 2016 function held at Southbank by the high end employment consultancy firm which only deals with executives with $150,000 plus salaries, SHK Asia Pacific. He also attended SHK’s Christmas $300 a head lunch in December. The shire’s chief financial officer also attended the lunch. The shire’s corporate counsel accepted tickets ($300) to the Australian Open in November 2017. Gifts offered to but declined by the

contracts and procurement officer included vouchers for an “exclusive photographic session” ($600) from Mornington Toyota and an invitation from Custom Fleet to Derby Day. A similar $600 photographic voucher was also declined by the contract auditing and surveillance officer. Other listed “gifts” came from Nepean Planning Consultants (food hampers - $220 - shared by planning department staff); a bottle of Chandon ($30) shared by the valuations team; and two tickets ($100) to the 70th anniversary dinner of Mornington-based planning consultants Watsons; Speedie Development Consultants gave the subdivision officer two bottles of wine ($50). Chocolates, olive oil and a text book are among other gifts listed in the register.

Club jumble sale BOAT gear and other nautical items will go on sale at a jumble sale at Hastings Yacht Club, 9.30am-1pm, Sunday 25 March. The Volunteer Coast Guard will have a stand beside one of their rescue boats and Maritime Safety Victoria will set up adjacent to the club. Volunteer Marine Rescue Hastings is also expected to participate and the training boat Dolphin will be on display. “We hope visitors will sign up for a sail,” organiser and social secretary Josie Hamilton said.

Classics on the road for cancer cause A FLEET of classic cars and motorcycles will travel across the Mornington Peninsula next month in support of children suffering from cancer. The first Ruby’s Ride ‘n’ Roll was held last year by Rachael Ford and Shane McGuinness, who started their own charity - Ruby-Rose Rainbow Fund - to raise money for children with cancer. “We lost our daughter to cancer two years ago, She had acute myeloid leukaemia, which is a very aggressive type of blood cancer. We’re fundraising for clinical trials, particularly for this type of leukaemia which one in three children will not survive,” Ms Ford said. “Our daughter was diagnosed at 18 months and she was pretty much in the Royal Children’s Hospital for another 18 months. “There was intensive chemotherapy, a bone marrow transplant and radiation therapy, but apart from her hair you really couldn’t tell she had leukaemia.She was always laughing and smiling. “What we’re looking to fund now is research into a more effective, gentler treatment, more along the lines of immunotherapy rather than that harsh chemo. Through the Ruby-Rose Rainbow Fund we’ve so far raised about $38,000 dollars. “Ruby’s Ride ‘n’ Roll is a fundraiser we are holding for kids with cancer. We’ve teamed up with the Children's Cancer Foundation, and whatever we raise they hold in trust, and will be distributed in consultation with us. If a clinical trial comes up for AML along the lines of immunotherapy, we will support that. Last year we had 70 people and between 30 to 40 cars and motorbikes come through.” The ride follows the coast from Mt Martha to Sorrento, then goes through Flinders to a barbecue lunch at Main Ridge. The it’s Red Hill to Hastings, Mornington and back for an auction at the Dava Hotel, Mt Martha. Details: rubyroserainbowfund.com.au. Registration for Ruby’s Ride ‘n’ Roll is $30 and opens from 9am on Saturday 14 April at the Dava Hotel, Mt Martha. Brodie Cowburn

Kayacker has fin alert before rescue Stephen Taylor steve@mpnews.com.au A WESTERN Port fisherman whose kayak started taking water before sinking last week told rescuers he feared not making it home to see his newborn baby and two other children. The 35-year-old, of Noble Park, had been shark fishing. He said he cut his lines when he noticed water rising inside his kayak and paddled as fast as he could towards shore until it sank – taking his wallet, keys and phone with it. He was left floundering for an hour in deep water about three kilometres off Balnarring, 2.30pm, Thursday 22 March. The man told his rescuers he was “dead set scared of sharks” and got the fright of his life when he saw a fin approach immediately after his kayak sunk. It turned out to be a dolphin. The Volunteer Marine Rescue’s TX1 was on scene less than 30 minutes after leaving the Hastings marina. To save time, skipper Neil Cooper cut across Middle Bank – a shallow and dangerous stretch of water – saving up to 15 minutes. They were aided by the Police Air Wing’s helicopter crew which had spotted the man and dropped two orange smoke canisters to pin-point his position. The TX1 crew had the man on-board within seconds. He was rushed to the Stony Point boat ramp to a waiting ambulance, where he was given the all-clear. “We saw a dolphin, too, and when it dived we thought it was the man going under,” navigator Tim Warner said. Weather conditions were fine with a 10-15 knot breeze. A strong easterly the day before would

W

have made a rescue more difficult, Mr Warner said. “If the Air Wing had not dropped the orange markers we would have found it extremely difficult to find the man, as it’s hard to see just a head in the water. “We are so lucky in Victoria to be able to call on the Police Air Wing to assist in locating people lost at sea. “It was a great outcome in what we were expecting to be a long, drawn-out search.” VMR crews recommend kayakers carry a good quality life jacket and a personal locator beacon. Mr Cooper said: “If he had been wearing a PLB we could have been with him in about 20 minutes.”

Lifesavers help cat home THE crew of a catamaran which capsized on Western Port Bay on Sunday 25 March were assisted by members of Pt Leo Surf Life Saving Club who saw the boat in trouble from the shore. The three crewmen, who had sailed the 5.8 metre craft from Phillip Island, were all wearing lifejackets and were in the water for only a short time before the club’s rubber ducky arrived at 12.30pm. A lifesaver jumped in to help get them get their craft upright and they then sailed it back to Ventnor. Sergeant John Cannon, of Hastings police, said “extremely strong winds” on the bay caused the boat to tip over and made righting it difficult. He said the lifesavers did well in the rough conditions about one kilometre from shore. “There’s a good lesson to be had here: all the men were wearing life jackets which made them safer and made their rescuers’ jobs easier,” he said.

Natural lessons for schoolchildren IT was a windy day with reptiles slithering, veggies growing, insects, bugs and spiders crawling, poo composting, water and plastic recycling and the sounds of frogs croaking. But there was nothing to fear or complain about as it was all part of the 35th Mornington Peninsula Schools Environment Week at The Briars historic property, Mt Martha. Teachers and volunteers over the week (19-22 March) were instilling in more than 2000 schoolchildren the belief that they can make a difference to the world by living a sustainable life. Indigenous leaders taught children about Victorian Aboriginal culture and the youngsters tasted bush tucker and explored Aboriginal bushcraft, language and community. Lionel Lauch shared his knowledge of local food and fibre plants and showed how they are harvested. Fishcare promoted responsible and sustainable fishing attitudes while Tony O’Connor helped students learn the need to protect animal habitat. There were lessons in growing veggies from seeds and seedlings and how to set up a worm farm; fruit and vegies were promoted as healthy snacks. Wildlife enthusiast Andrew Wegener shared his knowledge of the varied and unique animals and ecosystems in Australia while Friends of the Hooded Plover explained why the bird is threatened on Mornington Peninsula beaches. Landcare’s puppet show taught how to care for bushland animals by protecting them from predators while

SIXTEEN graduates from the African Children’s Choir will sing in Mt Martha next month. As members of Ubuntu Africa they will spend a week on the Mornington Peninsula as part of a “grass roots cultural exchange” arranged by Mornington Church of Christ, Two Bays Choir and Mornington Community Singers. “Watching participants from both sides learn about each other’s cultures is one of the highlights of the tour,” Kwaya Australia president and founder Marsha Gusti said. The singers will eat at an Aussie barbecue, eat fish and chips at the beach, visit The Briars and shop at the Wednesday Mornington market. On sports days they will be shown Aussie rules, soccer, tennis and golf.

On the road with road safety plea WHITE bike rider Chris Savage rode into Canberra on Sunday night to complete his 1700 kilometre journey highlighting the need for improved road safety. His ride honoured former student Joel Hawkins, 17, of Mt Martha, who died in hospital after being struck by a car in Dromana in June 2015. A white bike marks the accident scene near the corner of Marine Parade and Nepean Highway. On Monday (yesterday) the cycling coach rode a 17-kilometre loop of the capital before meeting up with Flinders MP Greg Hunt and delivering his road safety message at Parliament House. Mr Hunt was among 250 supporters who farewelled Savage when he left Mornington Park the previous Saturday. “I told [Mr Hunt] there were 86,400 seconds in every day and all we ask is for road users to take two of them to think about road safety,” Savage told The News. Savage, who was sent off by 250 supporters from Mornington Park on Saturday 17 March said the ride through central and northeastern Victoria and southern NSW had gone “really well”. “I didn’t even have a puncture,” he said. He was accompanied by Joel’s father Leslie who had earlier urged road users to “double check they are making the safest decision for everybody – life is such a vulnerable thing and the impact of a road casualty is absolutely devastating to everyone involved”. Savage added: “All road users should be patient and respect the rights of others on our roads.” Stephen Taylor

Libs Lighting up LET there be lights was the declaration from state Liberal opposition leader Matthew Guy last week when he visited the Frankston Dolphins’ ground. Mr Guy and Liberal candidate for Frankston Michael Lamb pledged to spend $650,000 towards about $2 million needed for new lighting for night games and training at the newly monikered SkyBus Stadium if the Coalition wins government at November’s state election. “This lighting will vastly increase the versatility of the Frankston Dolphins VFL ground to cater for more games, training and events,” Mr Lamb said. Mr Guy said the Andrews Labor government would “rather spend this money on a ballroom in Etihad Stadium”. The state government has announced a $300 million rebuild of the Melbourne stadium that mostly hosts AFL games. Mr Guy says he will instead divert that money to suburban sports grounds if he is premier.

Motorbike crash

Noise annoys A Crib Point man who complained about noise from a nearby bar on Stony Point Road was punched repeatedly by five unwelcome male visitors shortly after his complaint. The man, in his 40s, was treated for injuries at the scene by ambulance paramedics. No description of the offenders was given.

Bomb scare at court A BOMB scare on Tuesday 20 March saw part of Fletcher Road near Frankston Magistrates’ Court cordoned off between about 8am and 10am. Police gave the “all clear” and reopened the road after the bomb squad was called in to investigate using a robot to get close to “a suspicious device” outside the courthouse building. The suspicious device was found by a passing patrolling protective services officer (PSO). Eyewitnesses said it appeared a fuel container had been wired and taped up to look like an incendiary device in what seemed to be “a hoax”. Police have released an image, below, and CCTV footage of a man they believe can help with their enquiries.

A MOTORBIKE rider came a cropper while fleeing coppers after clipping the wheel of a 4 wheel drive on Frankston-Flinders Road near Balnarring on Tuesday 20 March. The 33-year-old Bittern rider decided to avoid a police roadside testing operation at Hodgins Road and “booted it” on a Harley Davidson bike. His bike crossed the road line and clipped the 4WD travelling in the opposite direction along Frankston-Flinders Road. The rider, believed to be unlicensed, was airlifted to The Alfred hospital with a broken arm and leg and facial injuries. The driver of the 4WD was unharmed.

The man approached the front of the court and left an item at the front door at about 6.55am before running away. Frankston Crime Investigation Unit investigators believe a male, dressed in black clothing, standing near the shopping centre on Fletcher Road would have seen the man they are seeking to identify as he fled and are urging him to contact Crime Stoppers.

New force to catch drug dealers A NEW police unit will tackle the scourge of drug dealing and trafficking across the Frankston and Mornington Peninsula region. The newly merged unit of Frankston and peninsula-based officers will be based at Mornington Police Station and will share information about dealers to crack down on drug-related crime. Detective Senior Sergeant Michael Lamb will lead the unit and has a simple message for drug traffickers. “If you’re a drug dealer rest assured we’re coming for you,” he said. Detective Lamb, also the Liberal Party preferred candidate for Frankston at November’s state election, said merging resources between Frankston and the peninsula will give police “more scope and ability to run more proactive operations”. “Drugs don’t stop at Humphries Road, dealers don’t respect area boundaries,” he said. Two detective sergeants and 12 investigators are on board to chase down drug dealers. Detective Lamb said crystal meth, also known as ice, is increasingly responsible for violent behaviour by offenders. He said he first noticed the spread of ice when he was a sergeant based at Hastings about ten years ago. “People we regularly had dealings with were not the same — they changed and started behaving violently.” Ice users can go on “four or five-day benders” and some also indulge in crime sprees in stolen cars. “We’ll have surge capacity to act quickly,” Detective Lamb said. He said ice use cuts across demographics and police have noticed some tradies using it since it initially “makes them feel great and they get lots done”. However, ice use soon takes a dark turn and people quickly become addicted amid a personality change for the worse. Police note cannabis growing in homes — vacant and otherwise — still remains on their radar.

Peak hour delays AN ELDERLY man has died in hospital as a result of a collision in McCrae. The 91-year-old McCrae man was struck by a turning vehicle in the car park of a Point Nepean Road shopping centre, 9am, Friday 16 March. He was taken to hospital but died on Wednesday night. Police will prepare a report for the coroner. The driver of the turning vehicle, a 61-yearold Rosebud man, was said to be assisting police with their inquiries.

Fake notes

Cars, houses robbed

SHOPS and department stores in Mornington have been warned to watch out for counterfeit notes. Acting Sergeant Hugo Baard, of Mornington police, said the mainly $50 notes, but also $100 and $10, had been found at Woolworths in Main Street. He urged traders to be aware of the fake notes and to contact police if any are found. Long arm of law: Detective Senior Sergeant Michael Lamb heads up new police unit targeting drug dealers across Frankston and peninsula region. Picture: Yanni

Highly-organised drugs operations are “funding organised crime”, Detective Lamb said, alongside “backyard operators” who believe they can produce crystal meth to sell from instructions sourced on the internet. He said police will actively oppose bail when anyone caught in the anti-drugs dragnet appears at court. Neil Walker

travelling at 130kph in a 60kph zone. He has been charged him with reckless conduct endangering his two passengers, driving at a dangerous speed and other traffic-related offences, including P-licence conditions offences. He will appear at Dromana Magistrates’ Court, 12 April.

FOUR cars were damaged in a nose-to-tail collision on Bungower Road, Mornington, last week causing “traffic mayhem”. The accidents occurred between Moorooduc Highway and Derril Road, 4pm, Tuesday 20 March – near where six cars were damaged in a similar nose-to-tail, Wednesday 7 February. In that incident, five cars were described as being extensively damaged and one received minor damage. Two drivers were taken to Frankston Hospital. The driver of one of the vehicles was later charged with failing to stay a sufficient distance behind the vehicle in front and fined $238. Acting Sergeant Hugo Baard, of Mornington police, is investigating whether charges will be laid over the latest incident. One of the vehicles involved was a maxi-cab which had to be cleared of passengers – some in wheelchairs.

Holiday road dangers EASTER and the school holidays are fast approaching, making this a timely reminder to take care on the roads. “Obey the road rules and don’t endanger yourself, your passengers or other road users,” Acting Sergeant Julia Starkey, of Rosebud police, said. On 20 December last year, an 18-year-old Caulfield East man who had held a red-Ps probationary licence for only four months was involved in a single vehicle collision on Browns Road, Rye. His damaged car ended up in trees on the centre median strip. Police estimate the man was

Pedestrian killed

THIEVES ransacked 14 cars outside houses in Mt Martha, overnight Sunday 18 March. Detective Sergeant Alan Paxton, of Somerville CIU, said items including tools, coins and phones were stolen from “mainly unlocked cars” parked in Stanley and Paramount crescents, and on Bruce, Ponyara, and Bradford roads. Thieves hit cars in Sorrento the next night, taking similar items from cars parked in Labuan Street, as well as Coppin, Bowan and Melbourne roads. Many of the cars were said to be unlocked. A car in Point Nepean Road had its number plates stolen. “People are still leaving valuables, such as phones, wallets, iPads and tools, in unlocked cars,” Detective Paxton said. “We are at a loss. People should lock their cars and take their valuables inside.” In another incident on Bruce Road, overnight Sunday 18 March, thieves used keys found inside a car to access a house where a 78-year-old man was sleeping and stole a laptop.

Hit and a miss for retail expansions Stephen Taylor steve@mpnews.com.au A BID to revamp the Woolworth’s supermarket at Rye, as well as put up new shade sails, cut trees and reshuffle car parking areas, has been given the go ahead, while a proposal to “swap” land at its sister store at Mornington has been refused. Other works approved at Mornington Peninsula Shire Council’s Monday 19 March planning committee meeting for the Rye supermarket, on the corner of Point Nepean Road and Hygeia Street, include an eight-metre-high street sign; reducing car parking spaces; adding more rubbish and recycling bins; and installing charging outlets for electric vehicles. The shire’s statutory planning team leader Clyde Brewer said the proposal “demonstrates a high quality urban design while improving the car park in terms of pedestrian safety and vehicle movements [and] sufficiently mitigating impacts to the character of the Rye area”. Objectors had complained about excessive tree removal, proposed colours of the building’s facade and pedestrian safety in the wake of the revamped parking layout which will include resurfacing, changing traffic direction, and adding and removing shade sails in the car park. The shade sails will

cover 57 of the 198 spaces (cut from the current 205). Mr Brewer admitted removing much of the vegetation, including along the Point Nepean Road and Hygeia Street boundaries, was of “greater concern” but believed it would be mitigated by improved traffic flow in the car park. Cr Hugh Fraser said the Rye supermarket works provided “an acceptable outcome balancing a very necessary upgrade to the car park with some shade sails and replanting, much safer pedestrian access – particularly disabled access – while retaining mature shady vegetation which attractively connects the car park with the Rye foreshore”. The council wants a “suitably qualified wildlife handler” to protect and rehouse displaced wildlife when the boundary trees are felled. In Mornington, councillors turned down a proposed “swap” of public and private land, coupled with the redevelopment and extension of the Mornington Village Shopping Centre – which houses a Woolworth’s supermarket. As well as swapping land, the complex’s owner Graham Dixon had proposed to subdivide parts of it, use council land for retail purposes, vary easements, reduce car spaces and put up signs. He said the land swap and related works would improve the safety and function of the Woolworth’s load-

ing dock; retain the competitiveness of the Mornington Village; rationalise land ownership; improve the longterm functionality of the ring road; enhance design and landscaping of the carpark and loading areas; improve the pedestrian network, and make way for sealing areas of the car park. The shopping centre has a leasable floor area of 7936 square metres with 1243 square metres proposed in the swap. The shire’s principal planner Ross Fullerton told the council the planning permit application “cannot be seriously entertained” without the applicant offering more – particularly more car parking spaces. Mr Fullerton said the proposal, for the land at the corner of Main Street, Waterloo Place and Cromwell Street, would not achieve a community benefit in line with the Mornington Activity Centre Structure Plan and could burden the council with future infrastructure costs, particularly for car parking. He said the works were inconsistent with the centre’s present use; would reduce car parking and not provide safe and functional pedestrian connectivity to Main Street and surrounding streets. He said council officers had “significant concerns that the development is seeking to significantly borrow public parking areas to justify the shopping centre expansion”.

Catching up: Fisherman Neville Hutchins is taking calls as usual. Picture: Yanni

Fishing brothers back on line A QUARREL with their telephone provider reached crisis-point for longestablished Mornington fishermen Neville and Dalton Hutchins late last year when their phone was cut off. The brothers – who can trace their commercial fishing roots off Mornington and Mt Martha beaches back to 1855 – admittedly “let things get away a bit” when approached by NBN technicians and their service provider to buy modems and adaptors to reconnect to the new service in September. “The whole thing sort of scared me,” Neville admitted. “I’m not a tech-head, I’m a fisherman, and I suppose I let things drift a bit. To be honest, [reconnecting] was a bit beyond us and we couldn’t work out what to do and they didn’t seem to want to come down and connect us. “Things went from bad to worse and they sent us a bill and I’m sure I paid it, but they said I hadn’t and the phone

was cut off well before Christmas until mid-January.” The cut-off was devastating for the pair who lost contact with their regular customers who call daily to ask if they have been out on the bay and what’s been caught. Business improved marginally when a customer helped them redirect incoming calls to their infrequently used mobiles … but things only really picked up when their phone service was fully restored after six weeks of dwindling trade. “It was shocking for people to think we were out of business,” Neville said. “But we are not – we are here as usual.” Although they are still locked into their contract at least the brothers are back on the line – and taking calls from valued customers.

100 YEARS AGO THIS WEEK...

Brave Frankston soldier hospitalised Compiled by Brodie Cowburn ONE day last week Mr T. Reeves, Frankston, received word from the Defence Departemunt to the effect that his son, Gunner C. Reeves, had been admitted to Sutton Veny Military Hospital, England, on 23/1/18, suffering from gastritis. We trust that Mr and Mrs Reeves will hear better news of their young soldier son, who although only a lad of seventeen, has been fighting nobly; has been badly wounded, and gone back to fight again. *** A MEETING of residents of Frankston was held at the Mechanics on Tuesday to take steps to erect a memorial at Frankston to the memory of the late Sir John Madden. It was unanimously decided that a memorial be erected at Frankston and a strong working committee was formed with power to add to their number. A committee meeting will be held at the Mechanics next Tuesday at 8 o’clock to decide what form the memorial shall take. *** THE death occurred at Frankston on Friday evening last of Mrs Cousins, wife of Mr Benjamin Cousins who for the past seven years has been employed as caretaker at Colonel Grimwade’s, “Marathon”, Mornington road. Death which was of a sudden nature, was due to a heart affection, from which the deceased lady had been suffering for some time.

The late Mrs Cousins, who was 46 years of age, was a daughter of Mr Henry Brown, of Brunswick, and for very many years had been a resident of this district. Great sympathy is felt for Mr Cousins and family in their very sad bereavement. The internment took place at the Frankston cemetery on Sunday, a large crowd following the body to its last resting place. The funeral arrangements were in the hands of Mr H. Gamble Frankston. *** UNDER the auspices of the Frankston Red Cross Society, a grand concert in aid of the repatriation fund will be given in the Mechanics’ Institute on Easter Saturday, commencing at 7 45 p.m. sharp. The programme will be given by Melbourne artists, and has been arranged by the Presbyterian Young Men’s Union. *** A BAZAAR to reduce the debt on the Hastings hall will be held on Easter Saturday and Monday, afternoon and evenings, when there will be nail driving and hat trimming competitions, hoopla, etc, and on Saturday afternoon a baby show will be held, when valuable prizes will be given. The bazaar will be officially opened by Hon. A. Downward at 8p.m. on Easter Saturday. *** A VISIT of inspection of the works in connection with the Peninsula Water Supply was made by mem-

bers of the Frankston and Hastings, Mornington, and Moorabbin Shire councils on Wednesday last. The party made the trip by motor car, and visited the source of supply, and traversed most of the pipe line. A visit to the works where the cement pipes are being made proved most interesting, and general satisfaction was expressed at the progress being made. A full report will appear next issue. *** ADVICE was received in Melbourne by cablegram from Calcutta on Wednesday that the Commonwealth Government’s agents had secured 200,000 bales of grain bags representing 60,000,000 in all. It is anticipated that these will be ample for the 1918-19 Australian harvest if the amount of tonnage available be sufficient to transport them in time. Despatch for Australia may be expected to commence in August and be continued in September and October *** LOVERS of the “light fantastic” had a most enjoyable time on Saturday evening last when a dance was held under the auspices of the Wattle Club in the Mechanics. There was a splendid attendance and the music supplied by Mr Meekin left nothing to be desired. *** THE RECONSTRUCTED MINISTRY. Patriotic citizens are agreed that

at a time of stress like the present, there should be an end of party and that a National Ministry, should hold office. Mr Hughes, Mr Cook and their colleagues made an honest attempt to establish a government fully representative of all sections in the Commonwealth. They failed, because Official Labor stood aloof. In the reconstruction of the cabinet necessitated by the resignation of Lord Forrest, by the departure of Messrs Cook and Hughes for London and, possibly, by the increasing demands made on those who have held office during the trying war years, Mr Hughes and his colleagues have been true to the National ideal. The new members of the cabinet (Messrs Greene, Poynton, Wise and Orchard) represent distinct wings of the National Party. The selection of the new Ministers is satisfactory from another standpoint. It often happens that a weak Ministry buys off a too candid critic, by offering him a portfolio when one has to be placed. Happily the Hughes government has not stooped to that. The temptation was there, for quite recently a little knot of malcontent’s threatened the Ministry. These critics should not be silenced. *** MESSRS Alex Scott o Co. will hold their usual monthly market at Tanti on Monday, April 8th, commencing at 12.30 p.m. when they will offer cattle, sheep, pigs, poultry etc. ***

THE general list of electors for the electoral division of Mornington is now printed, and may be inspected at any post office, railway station, police station and state school within the division, or at the office of the registrar at Mornington. *** SPECIAL Easter Services will be conducted at the Frankston Methodist Church on Sunday next, morning and evening, by the Rev. E. Tonkin. The musical portion will be assisted by Mr G. Ernest Tonkin, of Kyneton. There will be Communion at the conclusion of the morning service. *** THE commandant of the A.I.F. at headquarters in London has cabled to the Prime Minister, stating that confusion has been caused in connection with the mails for the Australian Imperial Force and the American Expeditionary Force owing to the use of the letters A.I.F. and A.E.F., and it has consequently been found necessary to issue instructions to all despatch officers in Australia to enclose all mail matter addressed to Australian oversea forces in army postal bags, including those bearing hospital and civilian addresses. It is now merely necessary in addressing the mail to a soldier to state the number, name, initial and permanent unit with the words “Australian Imperial Force” in full. *** From the pages of the Mornington Standard, 30 March 1918

Champs Langwarrin get up over Mt Eliza PROVINCIAL

By Mr & Mrs IT Gully LANGWARRIN has been crowned Mornington Peninsula Association Provincial Champions after beating Mt Eliza. The Kangas, defending 180, had Mt Eliza reeling at 5/47 at tea on day two after 22 overs, with Lyle House and Justin Grant back in the sheds. Langwarrin skipper Travis Campbell, who’s no stranger to premierships at Edithvale, was on fire for the Kangas snaring 4/25 off 12 overs at the tea break. At the other end, arguably the best all rounder on the Peninsula, Matt Prosser was tweaking some magic of his own, bowling seven overs for a return of 1/4 at the break. Mt Eliza had teenager John Goudge playing a wonderful, patient innings while Ben Tracey was being forced to turn back the clock and play patiently. It still had some work to do. Fast forward two hours and the Mounties had lost their second grand final in as many years, bowled out for 94. Travis Campbell finished with 4/35, Matt Prosser 2/25, Adam Campell 1/11 and Jake Prosser 3/2.

Young Goudge was the final man out controversially trapped in front for 43. Earlier, on day one, Langwarrin won the toss and elected to bat first. Taylor Smith and Matt Prosser opened the innings and despite the fact they won the game off their own bat last week, could manage just a 29-run opening partnership in the big dance. Travis Campbell was out to Justin Grant for 30 before Matt Prosser was brilliantly run out by Nick Baron for 50. This left Andy Johnson and Jake Prosser to resume on Sunday with 3/116 off 63 overs. Facing the final 17 overs of their innings it was an arm wrestle. The Kangas batted at 3 ½ runs an over with Andy Johnson hitting 32 and Simon Parrot hitting 18. Mt Eliza’s Chris Mc Donough bowled 20 overs for 3/67 and skipper Justin Grant bowled 24 overs for a return of 3/43. The final Langwarrin score, given the rain softened the ground, looked defendable, they proved it was. Kangas downed: Langwarrin are Provincial champions after beating Mt Eliza in the grand final, right and below. Pictures: Andrew Hurst

It’s flag for Flinders PENINSULA

By Mr & Mrs IT Gully THERE have been many teams over the journey who have had nightmares in local cricket. Unfortunately for Main Ridge skipper Nick Jewell, that nightmare has become a habit. Looking for a change of luck, Jewell crossed to Main Ridge after losing a couple of grand finals at Sorrento. Despite the unquestionable talent the bad luck continued to follow him. Jewell’s Main Ridge finished day one after 57.3 overs on 8/74. Shaun Foster top scored with 36 (Foster’s old team Carrum was defending 7/200 against Dromana who were 3/57 at tea on day 2). Nick Jewell was the second highest

Day three on cards after rain halts grand final play DISTRICT

By Mr & Mrs IT Gully TORRENTIAL rain may not have affected first XI matches in all other divisional grand finals, but all roads will lead to Skye this Saturday afternoon when Baden Powell and Heatherhill finish their grand final battle. The run-ups were unplayable and despite best efforts to at least start the match, both captains agreed to start the grand final fresh on Sunday. At tea on the second day (Sunday) Baden Powell who won the toss and elected to bat, were 2/68 with Rhys Elmi ticking the scoreboard over nicely.

PAGE 36

Baden Powell legend John Harrison made the call that 170, given the ground conditions, would be a very good score to defend. At that point, Baden Powell was on track. One thing Harrison may have forgotten at that stage was that Heatherhill boasted the in-form player of the competition, Steven O’Donnell. At the time of going to press Baden Powell with 10 overs remaining was 6/175.

Match still on: Baden Powell and Heatherhill will face each other again for a third day of play to decide the District championship. Picture: Andrew Hurst

Western Port News 27 March 2018

run scorer on 12. With 23.3 overs still to bat on day two, Main Ridge could add just two more runs to its total, bowled out for 76. Matty Burns was superb once again with the ball, snaring 4/34 off 19 overs, while Dwayne Field snared 3/15 and Max Royal helped himself to 3/10. At tea on day two, Flinders was in a commanding position at 2/69. We didn’t have to wait for much longer for both captains to agree to pull up stumps after Flinders passed the total, 3 wickets down and with Tommy Clements in total control. Finders winning the flag was their first since 2011-12 and will be their first time in Provincial since the mid1980s..

Lions wield the willow SUB-DISTRICT

By Mr & Mrs IT Gully TEN overs could mean the difference between a win and a loss, even in local cricket. At stumps on day one of the sub-district grand final between Dromana and Carrum, Dromana was in total command with the score at 5/140 after pushing through 70 overs on the rain-affected first day. For the Lions, several players got starts with the bat, but none of them pushed on to make a significant dent on the scoreboard. The bonus for the Lions was that they

resumed day two with Jake D’Atri and Dylan Stead not out on 36 and 13 respectively. From the outset of day two the Lions had intent and as such blasted 60 runs in the final 10 overs to put them in a commanding position in the grand final. Stead was especially damaging before the Lions finished at 7/200 off their 80 overs. At tea on day two, Dromana had lost three quick wickets before steadying to be 3/57, Jedd Savage and Jack Fowler unbeaten at the crease. At the time of going to press Dromana was 9/131 with Jack Fowler back in the sheds, out for 69.

Frankston Pines, Somerville lead the way SOCCER

By Craig MacKenzie FRANKSTON Pines and Somerville Eagles were the only local teams to start the 2018 State League season on a winning note. Pines head coach Paul Williams gave starts to Mitch Landers, Naseer Mohammed, Aaryn Rix and CJ Hodgson and used their pace and ability to transition quickly to hurt home team Heatherton United on Saturday eventually running out a 2-0 winner in their State 2 SouthEast contest. Heatherton was caught on the break half a dozen times with former Pines’ keeper Alfonso Cardinale making a fine save to deny Landers from converting Pines’ best first-half chance. It took a low strike from Rix in the 57th minute to break the deadlock but Heatherton looked set to equalise 10 minutes later when young Pines keeper Jarrod Nardino gave the ball away and brought down Heatherton striker Ali Senad inside the area. But the youngster held his nerve and saved the resultant penalty attempt and it was game over in the 85th minute after Cardinale brought down Landers and the referee pointed to the spot. Hodgson converted to secure the points for Pines. Somerville Eagles beat Casey Panthers 4-3 away from home in Saturday’s opener to the State 5 South season. Two clinical finishes from Louis Griffiths, a fierce strike by Sam Beadle from just outside the area and a stunning free-kick by Matthew Curd secured all three points for the visitors. “Casey Panthers pushed us all the way and despite finishing with two centre-forwards playing in the defensive line and having Hayden Taylor sent off, we hung on to get a massive result,” said Somerville player-coach David Greening. “We were without nine of our senior squad for various reasons so I was hugely proud of the lads that played today with a couple of them having to play out of position.” Two second-half penalty saves by Robbie Acs couldn’t stop Langwarrin losing 2-0 to Moreland City in their NPL2 clash at Lawton Park on Saturday. The first of three Moreland penalties was successfully converted by Jesse Makarounas in the 15th minute after a poorly timed lunge by Luke Burgess had felled Moreland striker Lisandro Paz inside the area. Andy McIntyre’s sliding goal-line clearance in the 28th minute stopped

Moreland going further ahead. The best chance of the half fell to Langwarrin striker John Kuol in the 38th minute when he broke clear into a one-on-one only to be denied by the foot of advancing Moreland keeper Liam McDowell. In the 60th minute Christopher Cristaldo got clear on the right of the Langy area but shot straight at Acs and a soaring header from Kuol following a Paul Speed corner in the 70th minute thumped against the crossbar and was cleared. But Langy failed to clear from a corner in the 81st minute and Paz volleyed home from close range to complete the scoreline. Langy striker Liam Baxter received a second caution in the 91st minute and was sent off. Mornington’s bid for another State 1 South-East title started poorly when it went down 1-0 to Manningham United Blues at Dallas Brooks

Park on Saturday. A straight red for veteran Mornington striker Wayne Gordon in the 18th minute had the home side facing an uphill battle. The decisive moment in this contest came in the 23rd minute when a cross from the left came off the shoulder of James Newman as he attempted a header and beat Mornington keeper Liam Little. The 10 men pressed for an equaliser in the second half but Sammy Orritt’s volley from the left of the area sailed over. Mornington came closest to scoring when a superb Curtis Hutson cross in the 77th minute from the left picked out big Max Etheridge whose goal-bound touch was instinctively tipped onto the bar by Manningham keeper Stefan Taleski before being scrambled clear for a corner. Peninsula Strikers went down 3-1 away to Brandon Park in their re-

arranged State 2 South-East fixture on Saturday. Maxim Avram (2) and Sam Nikolovski scored for Brandon Park with Ryan Wilson scoring for Strikers. State 3 South-East promotion candidates Monbulk Rangers and Skye United clashed at Monbulk Recreation Reserve on Friday night with the home team winning 2-1. Scores were level at the break but five minutes into the second half Monbulk captain Geordie Scott broke into a one-on-one and put the hosts ahead. Skye began to panic for the remainder of the half as chances went begging and a clinical finish from Arash Sadeghi in the 75th minute gave Monbulk a two-goal buffer. Skye’s Mitch Blake pulled one back five minutes from time to ensure a tense finish but despite Skye’s pressure, it couldn’t grab the equaliser. Teenage midfielder Jack Gallagher signed with Skye last week and scored in the reserves before coming off the bench in the second half to replace Chris Driver. A pre-game injury to Mark O’Connor had sidelined the Irish midfielder whose place in the starting line-up was taken by Driver. Two other Skye midfielders are injured. Cameron Leopold had to come off against Monbulk with a broken toe while youngster Jordan Redburn was unavailable as he battles to overcome a hip injury. Defender Johnny Andrinopoulos remains sidelined by an Achilles strain. Off the field, Skye fared far better last week when local state government MP Sonya Kilkenny announced a $945,000 upgrade to the clubrooms at Skye Recreation Reserve. Seaford United looks set for another testing season after being thumped 6-0 by Brighton in their State 3 South-East contest at North Seaford Reserve on Saturday. Dylan Waugh had flirted with joining Strikers during the pre-season but returned to the fold and rejoined Seaford last week but was unable to have an impact in what was a dismal opening-round display by Paulo Pinheiro’s men. Three goals in six minutes allowed Brighton the luxury of a 3-0 halftime lead and effectively ended the contest. Jared Ekkel had spent the opening half-hour strolling about in midfield and distributing the ball at his leisure and in the 34th minute his first strike was parried by young Seaford keeper Austin Kearney who was helpless to

stop Ekkel’s close-range follow-up attempt. Two minutes later Michael Knott turned Daniel Mota inside out then struck a low shot past the diving Kearney to make it 2-0. As if to rub salt into Seaford’s wounds the move down Brighton’s right in the 40th minute was clearly offside but play continued and a low cross to the far post set up Nick Bale for a tap-in. Bale repeated the dose from close range in the 53rd minute to make it 4-0 then a simple inter-passing move involving Louis Hughes, Bale and David Nicholas ended with Nicholas in a one-on-one with Kearney and making no mistake from 10 metres for number five. Ekkel’s low shot from just outside the area in the 72nd minute made it 6-0 and a combination of inept finishing and a couple of good reflex saves from Kearney saved Seaford from an absolute shellacking. “I think it’s going to be a long, hard season,” said a Seaford insider at the final whistle and no-one disagreed. Baxter’s State 4 South campaign got off to a disastrous start with a 7-2 home loss to Monash Uni on Saturday. The mood at Baxter was upbeat leading into the clash after young gun Travis Ernsdoerfer returned last week from an NPL2 foray with Langy’s under-20s. But by half-time Monash led 3-1 and went on to record a resounding victory. Izaak Barr and Dan Disseldorp scored for Baxter. Southern United welcomed back Elisabeth Robers last week but lost Sunday’s NPLW clash with Box Hill United 10-1 at Monterey Reserve with Casey Aarons scoring for Southern. The under-12s won 2-0 with goals from Jasmine Smith and Stella Rogers; the under-14s won 9-0 with goals from Rhys McKenna (3), Candy Kilderry (3), Alex Jones, Danica Vukcevic and Alessandra Davis; the under-16s drew 2-2 with goals from Lily Aitken and Monique Lapenta while goals from Mackenzie Hicks and Jess Beddows couldn’t stop the under-19s from going down 4-2 in a much-improved performance. There are no State League or NPLW games over the Easter weekend but Langwarrin, Mornington and Strikers are in action in the fourth round of the FFA Cup. SATURDAY, 3pm: Langwarrin v North Geelong (Lawton Park), Mornington v Peninsula Strikers (Dallas Brooks Park).16s 11.40am, U19s 1.15pm).

Peninsula surfers ride wave to nationals

Green and gold: Jayde Mitchell returns in winning form on St Patrick’s Day at the Melbourne Pavillion. Picture: Supplied

THE WOMEN’S Peninsula Surfriders are set for the national championships next month after taking out the Victorian and South Australian Sailor Jerry Surftag Qualifier at Rye Back Beach on Saturday 17 March. The Women’s Peninsula team (29.69) consisting of Hannah Trigger, Vee Bieber, Claudia Daymond, Nina Sinclair and Charlee West charged the chunky conditions to finish nearly 20-points clear of Torquay (10.33). Peninsula surfrider Charlee West was stoked with the victory and now has her sights set on the national championships at the Gold Coast on Friday 27 April. “It’s so special to be a part of this team representing the club and to win the first ever Women’s Surftag in Victoria is really cool,” West said. Former Winter Olympic snowboarder Hannah

Mitchell ‘rapt to be back’ By Ben Triandafillou BLAIRGOWRIE Boxer Jayde Mitchell returned in winning form on Saturday 17 March defeating South American boxer Ariel Alejandro Zampedri at the Melbourne Pavilion. Mitchell proved that his neck injury was no longer an issue, moving freely around the ring, and claiming victory in the third round of the fight. “The neck held up fine. I got clipped a couple of times and it held up brilliantly so there’s no issue at all and I couldn’t be happier with the way the night went,” Mitchell said. “It was all about recovering from the surgery and being comfortable and confident in the fight. “I’m absolutely rapt to be back and now its full steam ahead towards that world title.” Mitchell has now climbed to number 11 in the world rankings and will be moving back down

Trigger posted the highest score in the final with a run of 10.50 and will head up north with the Women’s group alongside the Peninsula Surfriders men’s division who grabbed second at the Qualifiers. The men’s division pushed Torquay all the way to the last wave with club president and fifth surfer Lachy McDonald scoring 18.17 in the final stages of the decider to finish 6 points behind to claim second spot. McDonald said it’s great to have a large squad heading up towards the Gold Coast. “Winning the Women’s division and coming second in the Men’s is a great effort from our club,” McDonald said. “We were one good wave short of the win today in the Men’s and look forward to testing ourselves against the country’s best.” Ben Triandafillou

to the super-middleweight division to defend his titles and aim towards a shot at the world title. “We expressed our interest in fighting Tyron Zeuge who’s defending his title this weekend,” he said. “We’ve touched base with the world champion and it’s looking like a good chance that we may land that later in the year.” Mitchell’s return against Zampedri was all about making sure his neck could hold up and now with the confidence that he is back to his best, is also looking at a fight for the Commonwealth title. “It’s just speculation at the moment but it would be a dream come true to fight for the Commonwealth title,” Mitchell said. “I’d love to fight for the Commonwealth title before going towards a world title honours and join the likes of many great champions who have come before me.”
