Planting for a greener future

SOMERVILLE Primary School pupils got into the spirit of National Tree Planting Day last Friday by, well, planting trees. Pupils from every classroom in the school planted a tree each with the assistance of school principal Andrew Haley. Officers from the Department of Landcare were on hand to help with the planting on behalf of the Watson Creek Restoration Project. Picture: Ebony Elise

Sports club’s ‘win’ on rent Keith Platt keith@mpnews.com.au AFTER nearly two years of sometimes acrimonious debate, Mornington Peninsula Shire has increased the rent for land leased by the Hastings Cricket and Football Social Club in Marine Parade. However, the increase from $4000 a year to $15,000 initially, could have been $61,000 if the shire had adopted a “commercial” figure. The club, which has 50 gaming machines, will be charged $15,000 (plus GST) a year in the first year of a its new 21-year lease, rising to $25,000 a year in three years and then paying

three per cent increases for the following 18 years. The decision by council at its Tuesday 24 July meeting brings the rent in well below the $61,000 a year identified in a report commissioned by the shire from valuers Charter Keck Cramer. Much of the argument for the club to pay a substantial rent increase was based on the shire’s responsible gaming strategy which, among its goals and objectives, seeks to “ensure that venues operating gaming machines on shire owned land make a positive contribution to the community”. Figures released last week show $84 million was lost to gaming ma-

chines on the Mornington Peninsula between July 2017 and June this year. In neighbouring Frankston gamblers lost $64.6m. Figures released by the Victorian Commission for Gambling and Liquor Regulation put losses at the Hastings Cricket and Football Social Club at $3.278m. Losses at the other pokies venue in Hastings, the Western Port Hotel, were shown as $4.76m. In deciding on the $15,000 - $25,000 rent, councillors effectively rejected arguments put forward by property and strategy manager Yasmin Woods for the rent to start at $42,000 (plus GST),

climbing to $52,000 by the third year and then increasing by three per cent for each of the following 18 years. Ms Woods said the recommended starting rent of $42,000 a year included a subsidy based on the club providing benefits to the community. She said two consecutive annual increases of $5000 “is considered to be a fair and reasonable rental”. The shire’s responsible gaming strategy notes that “the presence of gaming machines changes the nature of operations of a community club. Gaming machines are a commercial activity that attracts new financial resources to the venue, resources that are

 Landscaping and Gardening Equipment  Bobcat, Excavator & Kanga Loader Hire  Building and Renovating Equipment  Log splitter, Slasher, Stump Grinder  Equipment Hire

not available to clubs without gaming machines”. The policy continues: “The organisation operating gaming machines on shire owned or managed property should pay a fair rent for the property. This fair rent should be based on a commercial/market rent for the property discounted by the demonstrated social benefit by the organisation to the broad community.” The club’s previous 21-year $4000 a year lease expired on 31 December 2016. The club has a liquor licence and a gaming venue operator’s licence for its 50 gaming machines that is valid until 16 August 2022.

Councils’ meet and eat on line

Councillors can claim child care

Neil Walker neil@mpnews.com.au

MORNINGTON Peninsula Shire councillors have been reassured they can claim child care costs for more than one child and child care agency fees. Councillors last week voted to amend the Councillor Expenses Reimbursement, Resources and Facilities Policy to make it clear that these costs can be claimed for children up to 16 years. The policy was adopted by council on 12 December 2017 and will be reviewed before the next municipal election in October 2020. Shire senior policy advisor Anthea Hastie said councillors can be reimbursed for child care costs while “discharging their official duties”. “Councillors are eligible for reimbursement of child care costs for immediate family members where the councillor or their domestic partner is the primary care giver,” Ms Hastie said in a report to council’s Tuesday 24 July meeting. As well as claiming such costs as travelling, use of their own vehicle and tolls (but not fines) councillors can spend up to $16,000 during their fouryear term on training, conferences and seminars. The mayor is allowed $3500 more than other councillors. Councillors are supplied with a mobile phone, computer and printer. The maximum child care rates that can be reimbursed (plus agency booking fees if applicable) are: $32 an hour on weekdays or evenings; $44 on weekends; and $55 on public holidays. Child care cannot be paid to someone who “normally or regularly” lives with a councillor. Keith Platt

MORNINGTON Peninsula Shire councillors will meet their counterparts from Frankston Council next week at a “working dinner” to chew over their differences in policy over the electrification of the Frankston line to Baxter. The dinner, to be held on Wednesday 9 August at Frankston Football Club, comes after shire councillors in May called on the federal and state governments to recognise the shire “as a major stakeholder”, since talks have mostly been conducted between politicians and Frankston Council. Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull and state opposition leader Matthew Guy visited Baxter station on 17 July to announce the Liberals, if elected at state and federal level at upcoming elections, will begin the project to build the electric track to Baxter next year. The shire said Baxter — which lies within its municipal boundary – would be an unsuitable terminus for the electric train service and wants the line doubled up and electrified to Hastings. An “advocacy paper” prepared by the shire says moving train stabling and maintenance and car parking “down the line” to Baxter “appears to be primarily to free up land in Frankston for development” (“Brake on Hastings electric train” The News 29/5/18). Making land available at Baxter would require “pushing out the Urban Growth Boundary and encroaching

on the Mornington Peninsula Green Wedge”. State Hastings Liberal MP Neale Burgess last week said electrification and duplication from a single to double rail line to Baxter “is just the first stage of electrifying and duplicating the line through to Stony Point”. “The estimated cost of electrifying and duplicating our line through to Stony Point was in excess of $2 billion and that amount was not immediately available,” Mr Burgess said. “While the whole amount was not available up front there are many benefits of bringing the metro line as far as Baxter to start and then taking it the

“Commuters will no longer have to catch a diesel train to Frankston and then wait for a connection to the city, they will be able to leave their car in the park ’n’ ride north of Baxter and travel through to the city. “There will be no need to try and find that elusive car park at Frankston station or elsewhere.” Shire councillor David Gill confirmed shire and Frankston councillors will meet next week.

Shouting above the traffic Stephen Taylor steve@mpnews.com.au THE Sick of Freeway Noise action group aims to unite frazzled residents along the Mornington Peninsula Freeway from Safety Beach, Dromana, McCrae and Rosebud. The community group is targeting noise from the freeway which it says causes sleep deprivation, stress, high blood pressure, depression and eroded living standards. The group says noise level testing along several sections exceeds VicRoads’ 2005 policy of 68dB. It says

the noise pollution issue has been known for at least 18 years with residents pursuing VicRoads and respective state governments, with parliamentary records noting concerns as far back as May 2003. “The traffic has significantly intensified since Peninsula Link opened in 2013, and yet both bodies still refuse to commit to effective noise attenuation,” spokesman Dan Wright said. “The area qualifies for noise attenuation works to address the health impacts on residents in an estimated 1500 homes, retirement villages, nursing homes, schools and businesses.

The group says the noise has become worse since vegetation was removed to install wire rope barriers along the freeway, reducing whatever noise abatement existed naturally. Mr Wright said the noise impacts of increased traffic volumes on peninsula towns “was never considered in planning by the project authorities, notably Vic Roads”. “It starts at 4am and often goes until 11pm,” he said. Mr Wright said the noise issue “continues to be ignored despite volumes of letters to VicRoads and the Roads minister Luke Donnellan seeking action”.

“We will pursue VicRoads and the respective Roads ministers and Health ministers to commit to addressing noise attenuation which we qualify for under the policy,” he said. “We will seek a real solution; we don’t want ‘political football’ delaying this any longer. “We will continue to apply community pressure on this health issue because our families deserve it; it is a health issue – not a lifestyle request.” Mr Wright said VicRoads was on record as conceding the area had a noise problem. “What is unclear is, where does the Mornington Peninsula sit in

the queue among VicRoads’ projects. “We have waited long enough. We are sick and tired of the lack of transparency as to the funding priority. We are dismayed over the finger pointing between the departments and being dismissed in the responses we have received from all of them.” Mr Wright said noise attenuation works had been provided to other communities in the state via other projects with arguably weaker criteria or history. “It’s extremely unfair. We are not going away.” VicRoads was contacted for comment.

Crashed plane ‘engine failed’ A PRELIMINARY report into the fatal plane crash in Mordialloc last month has found the single-engine Cessna 172 was making its first flight since an engine replacement. The Australian Transport Safety Bureau (ATSB) is investigating the cause of the crash that killed pilot Anthony Liddell, 50, when the plane crashed onto Scarlet Street, Mordialloc at about 5pm on Friday 8 June. The Mount Martha resident, an employee of a maintenance company, was piloting the Cessna as the sole occupant after scheduled maintenance. In its preliminary report released on 18 July, the ATSB said Mr Liddell broadcast an “engine failure” mayday to air Moorabbin Airport traffic control just before the plane came down in Scarlet Street narrowly avoiding houses in the residential area. The engine was tested on-ground before the fatal flight. “The aircraft initially contacted a power line and fence before coming to rest on a residential street against a parked car,” the ATSB report stated.

“The pilot was fatally injured and a post-impact fuel-fed fire destroyed the aircraft. There was also damage to a residential property and the parked car.” The Cessna was built in 2006 and had 6348 hours in service and was used mostly for pilot flight training. Civil Aviation Safety Authority (CASA) investigators, overseen by the ATSB, did not find evidence of engine mechanical failure. Damage to the plane’s propeller “was consistent with the engine not producing power at the time of impact”. Investigations are ongoing ahead of the release of a final report into the plane crash. “However, if any critical safety issues are identified during the course of the investigation we will immediately notify the relevant parties so that appropriate safety action can be taken,” ATSB transport safety executive director Nat Nagy said. The Cessna did not have a flight data recorder or cockpit voice recorder and it was not mandatory for either recorder to be installed in that type of aircraft. Neil Walker

Trees take hit in storm WIND gusts of up to 100kph on Monday night last week brought down trees in gardens and blocked roads in Mt Eliza and Mornington – keeping SES crews busy until 2am Tuesday. Spokesman Brian McMannis said 20 Frankston SES members worked in harsh conditions to move fallen trees from Tower, Humphries, Overport, Walkers and Canadian Bay roads from 10am Monday until clearing was called off at 2am next day. Then it was back on the job later Tuesday morning until 8pm. “We received about 35 calls relating to trees coming down, mainly on roads,” Mr McMannis said. Crews were rotated throughout the day to keep them refreshed and able to cope with the demand for their services. Backup was provided by Chelsea SES crews who also helped clear trees in the Mt Eliza area. Mr McMannis said it took a “couple of hours” to clear two large cypress pines which had fallen

across Tower Rd. “Mt Eliza was the worst hit area, but we also had calls from Langwarrin and Carrum Downs,” he said. Hastings SES crews cleared trees brought down when wild winds hit Mornington causing minor building damage, Monday night and into the early hours of Tuesday. Coordinator Naomi Jewell said its 10 members responded to 30 jobs – with an emphasis on the rapid clearing of trees down over roads to ease the next morning’s traffic flow. Three crews worked throughout the day and into Tuesday morning, with one large tree cleared from in front of the shops in Main Street. “It was fortunate for us it was a Monday night because that’s our training night and we were all at the base anyway,” Ms Jewell said. She said wind gusts of 60-100kph rocked the coast throughout the night. Stephen Taylor

Arrests after hotel raid FIVE people were arrested by Mornington police after allegedly stealing alcohol and other property from the Mornington on Tanti Hotel, early Sunday morning last week. Detective Sergeant Jason Hocking, of Somerville CIU, said police will allege alcohol valued at $150 was stolen from the bar area and clothing, a tonneau cover and 12-volt air compressor valued at $550 were stolen from a utility in the hotel’s car park, 5am, Sunday 22 July. A Dingley Village man, 26, and a Skye man, 27, were remanded to appear at Frankston Magistrates’ Court last week charged with burglary, theft and theft from a motor vehicle. The results of the case were not known when The News went to press. A Narre Warren man, 33, was bailed to appear at Dandenong Magistrates’ Court on the same charges in September. Two women allegedly with the men – a 36-year-old, of Croydon, and a 25-year-old, of Hampton East – were interviewed by police and released pending further inquiries. Detective Hocking said Mornington police were alerted to the robbery after the alarm sounded and were able to watch it unfold on CCTV. He said all the property was recovered.

say this rule applies to Peninsula Link, Eastlink, Mornington Peninsula Freeway, Frankston Freeway and the Western Port Highway (duplicated section) and parts of Nepean Highway, such as between Mornington and Mt Eliza. Drivers on these roads are permitted to drive in the right-hand lane only when overtaking – when the speed limit still applies; are making a right turn or U-turn from the centre of the road; are avoiding an obstruction, or the traffic in the other lane is congested. The fine for failing to keep left is $161 with the loss of two demerit points.

Lights, camera … HOLLYWOOD came to Frankston, Wednesday 18 July, when members of Somerville Highway Patrol ran Operation Hollywood in the south-bound lanes of Peninsula Link. Over six hours police used an automated number plate recognition van to scan the plates of passing vehicles for anomalies, and pulled offenders over further down the road. Those nabbed included seven suspended drivers, drug driver, drivers of 29 unregistered vehicles, two unlicensed drivers, speeding driver and one driving an unroadworthy car. Somerville Highway Patrol’s Acting Senior Sergeant Pete Martin said the

operation aimed to create high visibility policing and reduce road trauma. “Unauthorised drivers and unregistered vehicles are over represented in road trauma statistics,” he said. “Four people have lost their lives on local roads this year, and 81 have suffered serious injuries.” Acting Senior Sergeant Martin said road laws requiring drivers to slow down when passing emergency vehicles with the lights flashing had been in place for more than a year. “Yesterday I was horrified at the speed that some motorists drove when passing police standing on the roadside,” he said. “The next time the operation is run police cars dedicated to enforcing these laws and educating motorists will be involved.” The penalty for failing to slow to 40kph when passing an emergency vehicle with lights flashing is $282. “More importantly, failing to slow down is putting police and other emergency workers in danger,” Acting Senior Sergeant Martin said.

Officially booked A TOYOTA van picked up outside Dromana Magistrates’ Court last week

was sporting home-made plates: CPOAU92 (above). The 53-year-old male driver, of Cheltenham, told police he was a self-appointed “Commonwealth Public Official of Australia” who didn't need to a licence or pay registration fees. Unsurprisingly, police found no basis for his claims, and had his white van impounded. The man will be summonsed to appear at court at a later date for unlicensed driving, unregistered, false plates and refusing to undergo an oral fluid test for drugs.

Drivers’ Nemesis SOMERVILLE Highway Patrol’s drug-driving Operation Nemesis on Friday and Saturday nights, 20-21 July, detected three drink-drivers, one refuse breath test, nine drugdrivers, four refuse drug tests and six unlicensed, suspended or disqualified drivers. Four people with outstanding warrants were arrested and one who was wanted on a Whereabouts list was found. Police in one unit working in the operation watched on as man drove into a Seaford Road, Seaford, service

station and met another man, 7.40pm. The driver then moved over into the passenger seat and the second man got behind the wheel. Police stopped the car further along Seaford Road. They found that the initial driver, a Somerville man, 38, did not have a licence. He allegedly tested positive for alcohol and drugs, but refused further tests. He will appear in court at a later date facing a licence disqualification of at least two years, as well as a fine and possible jail time. He also faces charges over an outstanding warrant. The Frankston North man who took over the wheel, 35, was on a zeroalcohol driving condition. He blew 0.22 per cent and tested positive for methyl-amphetamines. His licence was immediately suspended for six months. The same police unit clocked a motorcyclist riding at 170kph in a 60kph zone along Boundary Road, Carrum Downs, and pursued a car displaying false plates allegedly doing 165kph on Peninsula Link. Operation Nemesis will run regularly on Mornington Peninsula roads in an ongoing effort targeting drug driving, police said.

NEWS DESK Airfield the topic TYABB Airfield Community Reference Group focused on priority actions identified in the Tyabb Airfield Precinct Plan 2017 when it met for the first time in June. Its members include Tyabb and District Ratepayers Group’s Dr Martin Cranmer and Katrina Chalke; Peninsula Aero Club’s Jack Vevers, Peter Bernardi, Judy Pay (also representing aircraft businesses), and Stewart Bracken (Tyabb Airfield hangar owners); Captain Dick Cox (residents/community groups), Len Minty and Ben Hogan (Tyabb community), Stuart Benton (nearby businesses, particularly outside the airfield), Bruce Turner (independent chair), and Mornington Peninsula Shire’s manager – strategic projects Allan Cowley. Discussions concerned the improved information available to the community about the airfield and its operations, an airfield masterplan being compiled by Peninsula Aero Club, an aircraft noise management plan, and a potential planning permit application for widening the sealed section of the north-south runway. The meeting was told a noise assessment, including a noise exposure forecast, would be financed by Mornington Peninsula Shire in conjunction with the aero club. The meeting reviewed a one-page summary: Issues, Opportunities and Aspirations, which had been compiled by the independent chair Bruce Turner. Members confirmed that the summary reflected (but did not limit) the matters to be explored by the group. One additional aspect was noted – the need for clarity over the role of the shire.

Lifeline for community house Stephen Taylor steve@mpnews.com.au NEIGHBOURHOOD learning and support groups at Mornington Community House have been thrown a lifeline with Mornington Peninsula Shire stepping in to underwrite the 33-year-old centre. The news is a relief for parents and participants who had feared for the future of the Albert Street centre which was shut down by liquidators in March. Mornington Community Contact had run the drop-in centre, meeting place and short term child minding centre from 1977 before it moved to its present address in 1985. Services included education and adult literacy programs, volunteer support, playgroups and childcare. Shocked parents gathered outside the house after being told only the night before, or that morning, that it was insolvent. (“Parents baffled by childcare loss” The News 5/3/18). Some had already paid fees for the year and were unsure whether they would get their money back. They had no idea where they would take their children that week. The welcome commitment comes after the shire stepped in to continue the neighbourhood house program and childcare services and coordinate the delivery of all its classes and activities. Childcare programs will now be managed by Community Kinders Plus. Other services include three-yearold kinder, occasional childcare, supported playgroups, literacy support

Getting creative: Mornington Community House Writers Group members Brian Lilley, Owen Quayle, Rod Ellard, Charmaine Calaitzis and John Missen at work. Organiser Lyndon Stephens said the members share their work and make constructive comments on each other’s efforts. “Some of us have been published or are aiming at being published but others write just for pleasure,” he said. “We are open to all writers and all types of writing.” The writing groups have run on Friday mornings and evenings for 20 years.

groups, mental health support groups and adult education and training. Money will be provided through the state government’s neighbourhood house coordination program and the shire. In a statement the shire said it aimed to “work with the community to deliver locally relevant programs”. It said a community advisory committee would “work towards a sustainable community governance model to ensure that the local community continues to have input into the operation and future directions of the community house”. The mayor Cr Bryan Payne said the house “provided vital services for our community”.

“The council has made an ongoing commitment to ensuring the house continues to operate and is well run for its users,” he said. “Council has also committed funding in its 2018-19 budget towards detailed designs for a potential new facility.” Cr Bev Colomb confirmed the “community was shocked after the house closed abruptly last year”. “We are thrilled to provide a longerterm commitment to users,” she said. “I encourage the community to come in and look at our plans for the future and provide your valuable feedback.” Cr Sam Hearn said the shire’s backing would reassure users and continue

Dog rangers’ summer beach bungle Keith Platt keith@mpnews.com.au MORNINGTON Peninsula Shire rangers spent summer warning dog owners off a beach at Mt Martha even though the 80 metre strip of sand is a leash-free area. The rangers visited the beach more than 40 times, telling dog owners it was a no-go zone for their pets. The shire has now admitted that the southern end of the leash-free Hawker Beach begins at the beach access stairs at the end of a track off the Esplanade between Augusta and Helena Streets. At one stage shire rangers displayed a large “Dogs prohibited in this area” sign at the top of the track. However, the shire will not be apologising to dog owners ordered off the beach and has not explained how the mix-up occurred. A similar location problem occurred when the shire provided a diagram of where it said dog signs were located at Mt Martha North Beach. However, the diagram was based on an aerial photo of Mt Martha South Beach. Environment protection manager John Rankine last week confirmed that leash-free Hawker Beach extends north from the beach access steps. The admission follows requests from The News for the shire to clarify the leash-free area. The requests have included a photograph of “Leash-free” signs erected several times near the beach access steps and, last week, a copy of a Marine Safety Victoria chart which clearly shows Hawker Beach ending

MORNINGTON Peninsula Shire’s latest graphic, above, shows leash-free Hawker Beach, Mt Martha starts at the bottom of the beach access stairs between Augusta and Helena streets (right). Shire rangers visited the beach more than 40 times over summer telling dog owners they were not allowed on the beach. No such orders were given to those without dogs near the boat sheds, despite the “Beach closed” signs.

between Alice and Augusta streets much further south than the area policed so avidly by the shire rangers. “Throughout the summer period officers attended the area around the bathing boxes (south of Augusta Street) following complaints received of dogs not being controlled,” Mr Rankine told The News in an emailed response last week. “This area was signed showing dogs are prohibited during daylight saving time. This area adjoins the off-leash area.

25 OFF %

“However, this area is not gazetted to be prohibited during the summer period, so shire rangers educated residents by advising owners to head north towards the cliff face where the off leash area is located. “No enforcement action was taken at Hawker Beach.” Dog owners who contacted The News said they were on the beach north of the access steps when confronted by rangers, not the degraded beach in front of the beach boxes.

Although that area of beach is officially closed due to erosion and collapsing cliffs, it appears the rangers did not “educate” anyone near or in the beach boxes about this fact. Mr Rankine said the shire is reviewing designated “off-leash areas and prohibited areas”. “The shire is also re-looking at the signage in the area to clearly stipulate where dogs are required on leash,” he said. “Review of designated off-leash ar-

eas and prohibited areas is required." After further inquiries by The News, Mr Rankine on Friday said signs at the bottom of the stairs “will be rectified to state that dogs are required on leash heading towards the beach boxes and dogs are allowed to be off leash heading towards the cliff face”. “We are working to replace the signage in the area as soon as possible so that it is more clear for local residents and visitors,” he said.

Somerville Egg Farm LINDA Napolitano is the driving force behind Somerville Egg Farm. From starting out on the family farm collecting eggs before school every morning to running the office as it is today, Linda co-ordinates the supply and delivery of the farm fresh eggs to all their customers from big supermarkets to cafes to the general public via the shop. After 40 years on the farm Linda still loves the egg business. “There is just something really great about farm fresh eggs. I can’t get enough of them” she smiles. Linda is also passionate about the environment and animal welfare and ensures everything on the farm runs to the highest standard. “If the girls aren’t

happy then they won’t lay so we make sure they get everything they need to make sure they are very comfortable. The only thing they don’t get is a latte every morning” she laughs. Customers often come in and tell Linda how wonderful their cakes are because the eggs they get from the farm shop are so fresh with a lovely golden yolk. Somerville Egg Farm has had many challenges over the last 10-15 years as it evolves into a leading figure in the Free Range Egg market. “We have implemented many new systems on the farm to make sure we are the best free range farm on the peninsula”, Linda says. “I really enjoy being involved in this business.

The Salon of Hastings WE are a technique progressive salon, meaning we invest heavily in education and training to bring you fashion-forward hair knowledge. We have old fashioned values and dedicate ourselves to “the ultimate client experience”. We are across all social media platforms and we have an easy to use online booking system, through our website or Facebook page. Starting my apprenticeship with the Myer/David Jones conglomerate of salons in the late 90s, I attended trade school in Melbourne and worked most of my early career also in Melbourne. Later, I came back to the peninsula, to settle, where I

eventually took over a small salon in Hastings, bringing my Melbourne brand of work to my home town. After 4 years and outgrowing the space, I took a leap of faith and re branded, relocated and changed the salon name to what it is today. I genuinely love my clients and people often remark, ‘I am the most spoilt hairdresser they’ve ever met’, as it’s not unusual to receive constant flower/and or champagne deliveries, jewellery and gifts for my daughter. But the best present is when they stand up out of the chair, hug me and tell me they love their hair. Hastings has been kind to me and I count many fellow

IN BUSINESS Bayside Shoes I never expected to be running a business when I started at the young age of 15 working in an accountant’s office, learning how to manage trust accounts and fill in tax forms. Here I am over 50 years later, as the owner of Bayside Shoes that I have been managing for the past 30 years. Combining a young family of four children, coaching while playing A Grade basketball and Netball (later playing Masters) and at one stage running two stores, it is difficult to understand how I found the time. I have lived and worked in the Seaford/ Frankston area for most of this time and seen significant positive changes in the life style environment that has flowed through to

the local community. During the 1980’s we sold low cost, high volume footwear, while today we offer a large range of quality leather shoes and boots to suit children, ladies and men for work, school, play or that special occasion like a wedding. Bayside Shoes also works with the local podiatrists to offer a “ shoe solution” for difficult foot problems whether you are a size 5 or size 17 in shoe size. We are very involved with the local community to support fund raisers for the local hospitals, schools, bowls and tennis clubs as well a specific charities like Cystic Fibrosis.

Jobs growth as steel exports surge BLUESCOPE is exporting tens of thousands of tonnes of steel to the United States from its Western Port base in a growth surge the company says has helped it create 150 jobs over the past year. Last week 10,000 tonnes of steel was shipped from Hastings to the West Coast port of Longbeach – later to be galvanised or pre-painted for various applications, such as building, general manufacturing or car making. BlueScope is able to sell to the US through its Steelscope joint venture because Australia

has, so far, escaped tariffs imposed on other countries’ steel exports by US President Donald Trump. Western Port plant manager Mike Hussey said BlueScope was exporting about 200,000 tonnes a year – a “significant increase” on previous years. “There’s been a concerted effort by the company to find overseas markets in the wake of the shutdown of the car making industry here,” he said. “We are always on the lookout for alternative

markets through our sales and marketing departments, although the domestic market is still our main focus.” Industry and employment minister Ben Carroll said the jobs’ increase highlighted the strength of the state’s steel manufacturing industry. He visited the Western Port plant which produces coated and painted steel products, including Colorbond steel. BlueScope said the state government was using Australian-made steel in major road and rail infrastructure projects.

Shire planners kept busy at their job MORNINGTON Peninsula Shire’s Planning Services department is patting itself on the back about being the busiest in the state. Data released by the shire shows the department processes about 2100 planning applications and receives more than 37,000 phone calls a year. Last financial year the department completed 77 per cent of the 2187 planning decisions within the statutory time frame. On top of this, the unit determined a total of 581 amendments to planning permits, 536 secondary consents and 408 extensions-of-time requests. “This is a total of 3712 statutory decisions made for a wide range of planning permit matters,” planning services executive manager David Bergin said. “Also, the team maintained a strong record at VCAT with more than 64 per cent of cases being decided in favour of the council.”

Mr Bergin said figures for the latest quarter showed strategic projects and Peninsula Wide teams “delivered a significant number of critical projects to ensure the shire is preparing for the long-term future land use planning pressures facing the peninsula”. Over the financial year, he said, the team completed several major strategic projects later adopted by council, including the Housing and Settlement Strategy, Activity Centres Strategy Review, Tootgarook Wetland Management Plan and Industrial Areas Strategy. Also, an extra 14 major planning scheme amendments were prepared and progressed to varying stages. These included the adoption of the Cresswell Street rezoning (Amendment C210), exhibition of the Mornington Peninsula Stage 2 Heritage Overlay (Amendment C214) and Western Port Land Subject to Inundation (Amendment C216).

“This equates to an enormous amount of work prepared by the team for the council’s consideration,” Mr Bergin said. The planning compliance team has also been “very busy” this past financial year taking on a record 1508 investigations and completing 1194. The team issued 58 infringement notices, and was involved in 19 VCAT proceedings and nine magistrates’ courts proceedings. The mayor Cr Bryan Payne said the “entire team does an outstanding amount of work that is reflected in the statistics across all of the planning services unit”. “This demonstrates how busy the team is working to ensure we protect and enhance the unique characteristics of the Mornington Peninsula,” he said. The shire has an area of 723 square kilometres and a population as recorded in the 2016 census of about 155,000. Stephen Taylor

TYABB residents Peter McCullough and Lance Hodgins will talk on “Who killed Jim Barclay” at the next meeting of the Hastings-Western Port Historical Society, Hastings Museum, corner Marine Parade and Skinner Street, Hastings, 10.15am12noon, Thursday 9 August. Investigations continue into the 100-yearold mystery in which a Hastings man died. The identity of his killer is still unknown and the case remains unsolved. The entrance fee is $5. There will be a small door prize and lucky dip. Refreshments will be supplied. Details: email hwphs@outlook.com or call 0490 132 011 or 9781 1141.

100 YEARS AGO THIS WEEK...

Bakery’s new proprietorship Compiled by Boronica King THE bakery business of Mr W. Grant, of Frankston, has changed hands, the new proprietor being Mr J.A.S. Arthur, of St Arnaud, who solicits a continuance of the patronage accorded his predecessor. *** MR Norman Jackson, youngest son of Rev. and Mrs Jackson, who resided at Frankston for some time, enlisted for active service abroad this week, but greatly to his disappointment was rejected as physically unfit for service. *** REV E. Tonkin will conduct both services in the Frankston Methodist Church on Sunday next. The services will be of a special character on account of the Empire’s entry into the fifth year of the war against Germany. *** MR. R. W. Clanchy, a returned soldier, who recently took charge of the Langwarrin State School has accepted a more important and lucrative position in the Defence Department. As no successor to Mr Clanchy has been appointed, the school is now closed. *** A MEETING of the committee formed to secure the return of Mr R. M. Hoare at the forthcoming council election will be held at Frankston House on Wednesday August 7th, at 8 p.m. All interested are invited to attend. *** A FOOTBALL match between the Frankston juniors and the Langwarrin Guard was played at Langwarrin on Saturday. The home team proved too good for he visitors the final scores being Langwarrin 8.10, Frankston 2 3. Today the Frankston team will try conclusions with a team from Hastings, in the Frankston park *** A SPECIAL intercessory service will be held in the Frankston Mechanics on Sunday next, August 4th. The Langwarrin military band will be in attendance, and suitable addresses will be delivered. All the councillors in the shire have signified their intention of being present. Permission has been received for all returned soldiers in the shire to wear their uniforms. *** IN connection with the Frankston concert for the Red Cross Funds on Saturday, August 17th, we are informed that the organiser has secured the Costume Comedy Company known as Myers Entertainers, to give the full programme. This company consists of fourteen high class city artists, and is one of the best and most favorably know companies in Melbourne. *** THE Orchard Planters Pty. Ltd, of Melbourne, are forming a company for the manufacture of roofing tiles, bricks and fire bricks on their property at Bittern. Another seam of coal has been found, and the company intends putting down another bore, 100 feet deep. The representative of the company, Mr Surtie, expects that a start on the plant for the brick works will be made in a few weeks, and already a large order has been received for bricks as soon as they are manufactured. *** MISS Sheila Shannon is still adding to her list of successes. On Saturday, July 20th, she again appeared with the Will o’ the Wisps company, and the following flattering remarks concerning her performance appeared in the Age on Monday, 22nd July :— “Little Sheila Shannon danced and sang with such admirable art that she received a double encore and a shower of bouquets and gifts. Her voice, for a young child, is remarkable, and her toe work without blemish”. *** MR Pascoe, the Agricultural Editor of the Weekly Times visited Langwarrin this week for the object of ascertaining whether soldiers could be put on poultry farms with any likelihood of success. Mr W. Aisbett said that he was willing

to assist soldiers in making a success of poultry keeping, but would not recommend any soldier to be put on poultry farms unless he was under expert supervision, or had previous knowledge. An article will appear in next week’s issue of Weekly Times, showing Mr Aisbet’s methods of poultry keeping. On the following week a very interesting article will appear showing how three women took up an abandoned farm within two miles of Frankston, and doing all their own work, even to ploughing, are meeting with great success. *** NOMINATIONS will be received until Thursday, August 8th, for candidates to fill the vacancies caused by the retirement, through effluxion of time, of a councillor in each of the ridings. In the North riding Cr Clements retires, and will before not, we understand, seek reelection. Two candidates fill the position—Messrs R. M. Hoare and Charles Gray—have already announced their intention of contesting the seat. In the East riding Cr Watt retires, and will not again offer his services. Messrs H. E. Unthank and A. J. Alden will contest this seat. Cr J. Unthank is the retiring councillor in the Centre riding, and it is not thought likely that he will be opposed. *** DANDENONG market. Tuesday, July 30th. Adamson, Strettle & Co, Pty and Alex Scott & Co. Pty. Ltd. conjointly report:—About the usual number of cattle yarded including some extra good milkers and springers which met with very keen compe- tition, prices being much in advance to late rates. Milkers from £18 to £31, Springers from £15 15s to £20 Store Cattle—Small yarding and prices slack. Pigs and calves— Good supply and prices firmer. *** TYABB and Hastings Fruit growers’ Association. The annual meeting was held on Thursday evening last, 25th July. The president Mr J. H. Young, occupied the chair. The minutes of the last meeting were confirmed, and, in accordance with notice of motion Mr Mair moved that until further notice the positions of Secretary and Treasurer be a dual office. An amendment was moved to the effect that an Hon. Treasurer be elected. After considerable discussion the result of the poll was declared equal and the chairman recorded his vote in favor of the amendment: The balance sheet showed a credit of £4 9s 11d. The election of officials resulted as follows: President. Mr, J. H. Young ; vice presidents, Messrs A. E. Benton and F. Stockton ; Hon. Treasurer Mr H. T. Noble; Secretary, Mr T H Houfe; Auditors, Messrs Brockett and Floyd. Mr Alden and Mr. Mair moved a hearty vote of thanks to the retiring officials and complimented them on the present satisfactory state of the society. *** WEDDING Bells. A very pretty wedding was celebrated on the 17th July, at the Presbyterian Church Thornbury, by the Rev J. H. Hewitt. M.A., B.D., The contracting parties being Mr E. Thiobouse (late A.I.F. Anzac) and Miss Winifred Andrews, late of Frankston. The bride, who was given away by her grandfather, looked very pretty, dressed in white with wreath and veil, and carrying a bouquet of white stocks and violets with streamers of the bridegroom’s colors. The bridesmaids, Misses and Alice Andrews, sisters of the bride, were dressed in white voile, carrying bouquets of violets; The best man being Mr W. Andrews, youngest brother of bride. The Wedding March was played by Miss Wheeler, A.L.C.M. Thirty nine guests sat down to the breakfast at the residence of the bride’s parents. *** From the pages of the Mornington Standard, 3 August 1918

THE MEANING OF EXISTENCE... AND OTHER SHORT STORIES

The Adventures of Eduardo Cubillo Saborit Esquire By Stuart McCullough TALK about a surprise. Here we were, minding our own business when my wife received a letter. That, of itself, is no cause for celebration but this was no ordinary piece of correspondence. Indeed, the amazing and most unexpected missive was from the audit and accounting division of a firm located – in all places – Spain. Signed by the fantastically named Eduardo Cubillo Saborit Esquire, the basic gist of the letter was that our ship had just come in, carrying with it extraordinary riches that were now ours for the taking. Twelve and a half million Euros, to be exact, of which Eduardo would extract a modest commission of exactly half. Our euphoria was short lived. After a few short weeks, I began to become suspicious. I realize that you should never look a gift horse in the mouth, but this particular gift horse appeared to have especially bad breath and a somewhat jarring set of false teeth. Firstly, Eduardo described himself as both an auditor and a lawyer. That’s like calling yourself both ‘country’ and ‘western’. It’s hard to be both. On top of that, he was also the Chief Executive Officer of the renowned firm in Spain that, despite its awesome reputation, had elected to remain anonymous. My suspicion deepened to subterranean levels when I noticed that he’d supplied his private email address for the purpose of responding. His email address identified him as ‘eduardocubilo61’. I was struck by the larger than expected number of people named Eduardo Cubilo that apparently roam unchecked across the Earth. Had I not seen the email

address for myself, I’d never have suspected it. I was also struck by the fact that Eduardo had seemingly misspelled his own surname, dropping down from a two ‘l’ Cubillo to a single ‘l’. It’s fair to say that this

shook my confidence somewhat. It’s very hard to imagine that a man who can’t spell his own surname should be able to rise to exalted rank of Chief Executive Officer. I realize it’s tremendous for Ed-

uardo (and for anyone else who is incapable of spelling their own name, really) that he’s the CEO of one of Spain’s most renowned firms, but I still found it odd that the letter should not say what his firm of renown actually does. Other than send letters through the post to far off places, of course. Suddenly I was incensed. Clearly, the private email address was a blatant bid to rip off the very company he’s supposed to represent. For shame, Eduardo Cubil(l)o Saborit Esquire. For shame. Without doubt, you’ve embarrassed the other sixty people called Eduardo Cubilo. Not that they should suffer as a result of your shenanigans. It’s important that one bad Eduardo Cubilo should not be allowed to spoil the entire Eduardo Cubilo bunch. As it were. My suspicions deepened further as I continued to read. He had found, so he claimed, an inactive account. The account holder, sadly, had perished in unspecified circumstances and it was asserted that the deceased was of ‘common decent’ to my wife. I’m hoping he meant ‘descent’ and not ‘decent’. I’m not sure what the difference between ‘common decent’ and ‘uncommon decent’ might be or, worse still, whether it’s possible to be ‘common indecent’ with respect to another person, but it all sounds a little bit wrong if not overly familiar. It got worse. In the next paragraph, Eduardo described himself as a ‘seasoned’ auditor, by which I assumed he meant salt, a pinch of pepper and a touch of paprika. He went on to say that the process was ‘100% viable’ with ‘little or no risk’ involved. I don’t mean to be picky, but there’s a

world of difference between ‘little’ and ‘no’ risk, with the former being an absolute, and the latter leaving some substantial measure of ‘wriggle room’. ‘Wriggle room’ may well be an official auditing term so far as Eduardo Cubillo Saborit Esquire is concerned. Now truly suspicious, I was near certain that it was a ruse. It was only then that I noticed the letter appeared to have been typed. On a typewriter. Clearly, the Spanish auditing community had fallen on truly hard times. Even for hucksters like Eduardo. But despite large chunks of the letter looking as though it’d just been spat out of the back end of Smith Corona, random fonts appeared throughout the text. Names and email addresses appear to have fallen onto the page from somewhere else. Which they probably did. It was a scam, without doubt. And not a particularly good one, either. The mind boggles at how many letters Eduardo Cubillo Saborit Esquire sent in the hope of snaring a response from somebody. It’s odd that we live in an age where people expend such effort to cheat others and I’m not sure what it says about us that we were deemed ‘scam-worthy’. Not much, I suspect. I’ll admit I put the whole sorry affair out of my head. That was until the doorbell rang. There, standing on the doormat with a Smith Corona portable typewriter under his arm, was a small Spanish man wanting to know why I’d ignored his letter. There was nothing left to do but to shut the door and hide until he left. Adios, Eduardo. Adios. stuart@stuartmccullough.com

Applause for shire’s bid to reduce ‘planning insanity’ Older large house blocks were planned with a focus on big back yards for kids to play and family fun such as back yard cricket. As Melbourne’s population exploded, developers were given free rein resulting in these blocks being subdivided into multi units where square metres are measured in dollars and cash grabbing took precedence over life style. Majestic tall palms, oaks and Norfolk pines were torn down, totally changing the character of Mornington’s back streets. Mornington Peninsula Shire is now considering increasing minimum size of lots to 900 square metres, making them unattractive to develop (“Planning doubts hits property prices” The News 17/7/18). At present, so called double car garages in which there is no room to open car doors has led to parked cars choking streets. With child obesity a major concern, there is nowhere for kids to play and two-storey units tower over neighbouring houses. Hopefully council will follow through and halt this current planning insanity. Aussie (Austin) Sadler, Mornington

We have murdered the Chinese immigrants on the gold fields of Victoria. In fact, we have persecuted every new ethnic race that has entered this country, We have denigrated the Italians, Greeks, Germans (especially the Germans), the list goes on. Even my wife, who, came from England in 1956 as a 12-year-old experienced racism at the hands of students at Pascoe Vale State school. She also endured racism from teachers who were supposed to be educated, respected individuals. She set about losing her northern England accent to the point that when I first met her in 1958, I was not aware she was English until I was invited to meet her Family. We treat all Muslims with suspicion and now the Turnbull government has set its sights on Sudanese immigrants. We are indirectly responsible for the deaths that occur on Manus Island and Nauru because we allow our government to incarcerate innocent people. Listen to yourselves and others who say I’m not a racist, but … John Cain, McCrae

Council support

Unguarded base

Regarding the article “Planning doubts hits property prices” (The News 17/7/18) it needs to be considered that Mornington Peninsula Shire Councils’ new planning proposals will support many current property owners from a decrease in property value due to being hemmed-in by new, sometimes two-storey developments packed onto sites next door or even both sides of their current property. It will also support potential buyers who are families looking for a home that may even have a backyard. It’s council’s job to consider all parties concerned, including the possibly silent majority. Jill Stanszus, Mornington

I am astonished that the Defence Ministry would allow civilians to decide when and where defence bases would cease to operate fully and effectively by withdrawing their labour (“Guards march off job at naval base” The News 24/7/18). I served 16 years in the regular army and in that time security on bases and in barracks was the responsibility of the regiment or corps stationed on that base. This action by the staff of Wilson Security is akin to the wharfies going on strike in Sydney and Melbourne during World War II and refusing to load supplies for Australian troops serving overseas to protect this country, an action that was labeled treasonous at the time. What a sad and sorry state of affairs we have in Australia now with the unions, the loony left and the PC brigades dictating what our defence forces can and cannot do. God forbid we should ever have another military threat against Australia. You’d be killed in the rush of people running away instead of running to defend the country. James P Anderson, Mt Martha

Train supporter I want to congratulate the federal government, as well as the state opposition, for committing monies for the extension of the Frankston train line to Baxter. Electrifying the Frankston train line to Baxter will have many enormous economic, environmental and social benefits. It will also give the residents of both Karingal and Langwarrin – as well as the many residents within the Mornington Peninsula region – access to the metro train network. It is disappointing that the federal opposition and the state government have yet to make funding commitments. This proposal is a no-brainer and should be one where a bipartisan effort – regardless of political leanings – is demonstrated. If the state government is not willing to build its long promised but ultimately failed commitment of a multi-deck car park at the Frankston railway station (to alleviate the congested state of parking in the town centre), the least it could do is support the electrification extension to Baxter as this will undoubtedly free up car spaces in the Frankston town centre. If you live in Karingal or Langwarrin, why park in the Frankston town centre when you can park at either Langwarrin or Leawarra railway stations? Kris Bolam, City of Frankston councillor North-West Ward

Nationalised racism What should have been a good news item by Malcolm Turnbull announcing plans for the electrification of the Frankston line to Baxter (“New train stations and extended rail line” The News 24/718) was sullied by his politically motivated attack on the Sudanese people of Melbourne. His claim that his government has “zero tolerance for racism” has been shot down of late by [Home Affairs Minister Peter] Dutton and [state Opposition leader] Matthew Guy. These people can deny it all they like, but Australia is basically a racist country. From the time the first white settlers arrived in this country we have persecuted minority groups. We have poisoned the water holes and massacred Aboriginal tribes and treated them as inferior beings (all that has been documented).

Silencing dissent On a night like this (Monday 23 July) with its vicious threatening gusts [of wind] I learn that the federal government is proposing to pass bills that aim to silence charities such as the Climate Council, that speak out on potential election issues like climate change and energy, by enforcing complex regulations. People could be required to complete a statutory declaration and have it signed by a Justice of the Peace, for donating just over $4.80 a week. Charities could be stuck behind paperwork unable to undertake their core work. The legislation goes against our democratic principles in Australia. Former Australian of the Year Tim Flannery has been quoted in the Illawarra Mercury (5/7/18) as saying: “Whether it’s the provision of clean, affordable and reliable renewable energy and storage technologies, or protecting icons such as the world’s largest living natural wonder, the Great Barrier Reef, or protecting Australians from worsening extreme weather events, including heatwaves, bush fires, coastal flooding and drought. Without charities, many of these important issues would not see the light of day. A strong and robust democracy must provide space for these discussions to take place, and not attempt to shut down dissenting views.” Georgette Courtenay, Mt Martha

Need positive politicians I am concerned that the proposed Foreign Donation Bill in federal parliament will silence charities that speak out on potential election issues - such as climate change and energy - and enforce complex regulations. For example, if you chipped in just $4.80 a

week, you would need to complete a statutory declaration to prove you’re an Australian citizen. This would make it near impossible for charitable organisations to sustain funding from the community, and they should be exempted from these onerous administrative obligations. It’s time our politicians stopped trying to silence the climate and energy debate through these dubious tactics and focused on positive outcomes for the future of our society in Australia. Jesper Hansen, Capel Sound

Swastika perverted I have been away for two weeks, so I have been catching up on the local news and was gobsmacked to read Fran Henke’s letter (“Swastika ignorance”10/7/18). I was the person who reported the swastika [on a tree at Bittern] to authorities (“Swastika ‘repugnant’, says civil rights group” The News 3/7/18). Yes, I am very well aware that the swastika originated as a Sanskrit symbol, but the fact remains that the Nazi regime adopted it and perverted it. It is now indelibly associated with their hateful ideology. I very much doubt whether the vandals who showed such disregard for the tree had the original Sanskrit symbol in mind. Is Ms Henke really putting the wellbeing of the tree before the wellbeing of members of the community who might be upset at the appearance of a swastika in their midst? The Nazi regime perpetrated atrocities against its Jewish citizens, as well as its LGBT and disabled citizens - to name just three groups that continue to suffer from stigma and prejudice in the present day. All three of these communities are represented here on the Mornington Peninsula - even in our little corner of Western Port. I would be happy to meet with the vandals who daubed the tree in the first place and tell them the story of my family’s experience during the Holocaust, or arrange for them to attend the Holocaust Museum in Melbourne. My hope is that some genuine understanding of the Nazi regime and its long shadow will prevent both further graffiti of this kind, as well as defending such repugnant and offensive behaviour. Bianca Felix, Bittern

Shire’s concrete fix I was interested to read Cr Simon Brooks’ disingenuous letter about quarries (“Shire’s lost power” Letters 24/7/18). Cr Brooks has only recently voted with a handful of like-minded colleagues to construct a concrete footpath in Sorrento opposed by 90 per cent of the residents. The negative impact of this project on the local environment will be massive. Just where does Cr Brooks imagine that the tonnes of crushed rock needed to build this footpath will originate? It has to come from a quarry somewhere. Cr Brooks complains about ‘… little strategic planning, particularly at state level …’ when it is evident that Mornington Peninsula Shire’s

TRAFFIC counting cameras on poles at intersections around Mornington last week attracted plenty of attention. “What were they for?” “Who had ordered them?” One of the workmen, who said he was employed by Mornington Peninsula Shire to put up 24 counters at strategic intersections, couldn’t offer any more detail. “Call the shire,” he advised. The mystery deepened next day: the counters had vanished. Shire staff said they had no information and to check with VicRoads. “VicRoads are currently running projects in Mornington, so they may have placed traffic counts – they might be your best contact.” But VicRoads was in the dark, too. “I've contacted teams for the Mornington region to ascertain whether VicRoads is responsible, [but] it doesn't appear that they are [our] cameras,” a spokesperson said. “VicRoads generally uses tubing for traffic counting, and there are no current projects in the vicinity of the cameras that you saw.” Whatever … the cameras are gone now. enthusiastic demand for concrete suggests some local planning, reflection and “mature discussion” wouldn’t go astray. It would appear that Cr Brooks has displayed a chronic case of nimbyism. Layla Godfrey, Sorrento

Understanding public [Home Affairs Minister Peter] Dutton has called people who are concerned for the refugees on Manus and Nauru Islands misguided “fellow travellers” in their concerns about the cruelty of endless detention. That term came out of the notorious anti-communist purges in the 1950s in the United States and Australia into a charge of treason. How sad is it that the minister is so carried away with his role that he would stoop to such a level. It is 2018, not 1955. In the many rallies that Grandmothers Against the Detention of Children have held I have found the public are, on the whole, more enlightened than our politicians on the issue. In fact they are light years ahead of them in compassion and reason. Petitions are filled readily. It is rare to receive such a response. Patricia Rayner, Somers

My Health record [Flinders MP and Health Minister] Greg Hunt’s warrant claims contradicted by police union: The Queensland Police Union has said there is nothing in legislation “that requires any enforcement body to obtain a warrant”. This is the second police department to say so, Given this, and the lack of security on this site, it is important to opt out before it is too late. Must be done by 15 October. Joe Lenzo, Safety Beach

Clear felling in Frankston Last month I was shocked to see that in one day about 20 mature native trees had been cut down from the median strip of Frankston-Cranbourne Road near the Peninsula Aquatic Recreation Centre (PARC). I assumed that it was VicRoads or another authority with a “rational” explanation. However, I was in for another shock when a young, officious Frankston Council officer told me that the council had made this decision. When I asked why, I was dumbfounded to be told, in a slightly haughty manner: “We want to redevelop that area.” The council has now replanted this area with what looks like Norfolk pines. What it has not taken into account is that it has clear felled valuable native flora providing habitat for many different species, at great cost, and replaced this with an alternative that provides little. This is the way of the world at present, but what it should have done was to plant native grasses and shrubs in with these mature trees so as to increase indigenous biodiversity and habitat.

Sharks shocked by plucky Pines DIVISION ONE

By Brodie Cowburn PINES have pulled off a major upset in MPNFL Division One football this Saturday, defeating top of the ladder Sorrento at their own home ground in a tense contest. Pines got off to a red-hot start at David Macfarlane Reserve, kicking the opening three goals of the game inside five minutes to put the Sharks on the back foot right from the outset. Sorrento settled to get back into the contest, keeping the margin at just 11 points at the first break. Pines again flexed their muscle in the second term though and ran away to a 28 point lead by the half-time break. With tensions high, the game threatened to boil over on a number of occasions in the first half. Pines fans exchanged words with Sorrento players to try and get under their skin, with Leigh Poholke and Troy Schwarze being targeted. The momentum swung in the second half, as Sorrento pushed back and showed the class that made them the team to beat in this year’s competition. The Sharks battled hard to whittle the margin down to three points in the closing moments of the game but eventually ran out of time. The siren sounded with Pines just

ahead, as they held on to secure a thrilling win 14.12 (96) to 15.9 (99) in a game of the year contender. Pines coach Patrick Swayn said after the game that he was happy with how his side handled their aggression in the tense contest. “This was a great win. We needed these four points because it’s a really tight competition at the moment. We just needed to get the win and we got it, but we’ll learn a lot from that last half. We’ve been one of the better second half sides in the comp but they really threw it at us,” Swayn said. “It’s an emotional game, and I thought the umpires were spot on with it today. It was a really good physical contest and I think that the fans would agree that it was a great game as well.” Sorrento coach Luke Tapscott, who

was one of the Shark’s best on the field during the game, said that despite the setback he was confident that his side would bounce back. “We let them jump us in the first five minutes. We know they love to start a game strong and we were playing catch up from that point on,” Tapscott said. “I think it’s a positive that we can come back and not go into our shells. We really pulled it back late in the first quarter and we were only a couple of scoring shots down so I don’t think there are any alarm bells. We just need to make sure we’re ready to go right from the first siren.” Pines’ Tom McDermott was one of the best afield, with his five first-half goals setting his side up for victory. At John Coburn Oval, Frankston YCW earned their place back inside the

top five with a gritty win over Mornington. The Stonecats started strong in the first term to claim a 20 point lead at the first break before Mornington wrestled back to claim a six-point advantage of their own going into half-time. In a see-sawing contest, YCW snatched the lead back in the third term and held on to fight off a brave Bulldogs outfit 12.12 (84) to 11.7 (73). Joshua Patullo booted four majors for the Stonecats, while Kyle Hutchinson continued his good run of form with a best on ground performance. The Stonecats snatched fifth place from their cross-town rivals Frankston Bombers, who dropped out of the finals spots after a disappointing loss to Bonbeach. Both sides traded blows in a thrilling first half, with the margin standing at just two points in favour of Bonbeach at the half-time break. Despite looking like it would go down to the wire, the Sharks ran away with the game in the second half, establishing a 25 point buffer in the third term that would prove to be insurmountable. Frankston Bombers will now need to rely on YCW to drop points in the final three games of the year to make finals following the 10.11 (71) to 14.11 (95) loss. The win also puts Bonbeach within six points of fifth place, giving them a

glimmer of hope going into the closing stages of the year. At Regents Park, Edithvale-Aspendale took on Rosebud in a vitally important matchup for the home side. Given Sorrento’s loss to Pines, a win would see Edi-Asp go level on points with Sorrento heading into the final rounds of the home and away season. Rosebud, who have suffered through a disappointing season so far, were left shell-shocked in the first term after EdiAsp piled on six goals to none, taking a 42 point lead into the quarter time break. Rosebud were much better in the second quarter and whittled back the lead to 17 points, but ultimately could not overcome the deficit created in the first term in the second half, as they fell to Edithvale-Aspendale 10.19 (79) to 8.12 (60). Edi-Asp will play Sorrento in the final game of the season, with the result potentially determining who finishes on top of the ladder. The final game of the weekend saw Mt Eliza take on the bottom of the ladder Seaford at Emil Madsen Reserve. Despite looking much the stronger side on paper, the Redlegs were challenged in the first half, with scores level at the main break. Despite their early signs of fight Seaford quickly succumbed to Mt Eliza in the second half, as the Redlegs ran away with a 14.16 (100) to 8.12 (60) win.

Tigers secure top ladder spot DIVISION TWO

By Brodie Cowburn DROMANA have confirmed that they will finish on top the ladder with an impressive come from behind win over the in-form Red Hill at Dromana Recreation Reserve on Saturday. Red Hill entered the contest full of confidence, coming off a remarkable seven-game winning run which saw them move up to second spot on the ladder. The visiting Red Hill stunned the home crowd in the first term, racing away to a five-goal lead and holding Dromana goalless in the opening quarter. Dromana used the break to gather themselves and looked a much better side in the second quarter, trimming the margin back to 20 points, but they still had a lot of work ahead of them. After the half-time break, Dromana showed off the brand of football that put them on top of the ladder in the first place, as they overpowered Red Hill to claim back the lead and run away with a 14.9 (93) to 10.10 (70) win. The win ensures that Dromana will remain on top of the ladder going into the finals, securing their double chance and their passage straight into the second round of finals. The winning outfit benefited from an even spread of goalkickers, with Sam Fowler, Ben Holmes, and Jay Hutchinson each kicking three majors. At Chelsea Reserve, the Seagulls played host to Pearcedale in what would prove to be a surprise match of the year contender. Chelsea entered the contest as favourites and looked fairly comfortable up until the final term. By the three-quarter time break,

Chelsea had opened up a 25 point lead and looked as if they would run away with a fairly trouble free win. Pearcedale had other ideas and stormed back into contention with a five goals to one final term. Despite leading throughout the entire day, the stunned Seagulls couldn’t fight back as Pearcedale drew level with them heading into the closing stages of the match. When the final siren sounded there was nothing separating either side, as Pearcedale and Chelsea shared the points in a thrilling draw, with the final score reading 13.12 (90) to 13.12 (90). Around the grounds, Hastings hosted Karingal at Thomas Barclay Oval in a match that could have massive repercussions for Hastings’ season. In a scrappy and hard-fought contest, the Bulls held the lead throughout, but Hastings were far from dead and buried. Going into the final term, the margin stood at just nine points in Karingal’s favour. Despite looking set to go down to the wire, Hastings disappointed in the final term by failing to register a goal, as Karingal claimed the win 5.9 (39) to 7.14 (56). The win sees the Bulls claim back second spot on the ladder, while it leaves Hastings only just clinging to their spot inside the top five. With just two rounds to play before finals, Hastings finals spot is under threat by Langwarrin, who claimed an emphatic win over Tyabb to close the gap between them and fifth place to just two points. With everything to play for, Langwarrin raced out to a strong lead in the first half, with the margin stand-

ing at 37 points in the Kangaroos’ favour at half-time. Despite entering the clash in a good patch of form, having only just fallen to Dromana last week, the Yabbies were not quite up to scratch against Langwarrin, as the Kangaroos claimed a decisive win 9.5 (59) to 16.22 (118). With Hastings set to face difficult match-ups away from home against Red Hill and Chelsea in their final two games of the year, Langwarrin may yet snatch a finals spot. Somerville also claimed a good win over the weekend, securing a victory over Rye in what was essentially a dead rubber match-up. The contest proved to be an entertaining one, as the lead stood at less than a goal at each break of play. Despite Somerville entering half-time with a two-point lead, Rye fought back to claim a three-point lead of their own going into the final term. Although they were behind, Somerville enjoyed a much better final term to put the Demons away, as they took all four points with a 12.12 (84) to 10.10 (70) win. The final match of the round saw Devon Meadows take on Crib Point at Glover Reserve in what would prove to be an easy win for the home side. The Panthers raced out to a strong 33 point lead over the Magpies in the first term and held that lead throughout the entire afternoon. Michael Theodoridis was the standout performer with five goals, as his Devon Meadows side claimed the win 15.18 (108) to 10.8 (68). Hard fought: Karingal got up over Hastings at Thomas Barclay Oval.

Kilners see red, Baxter match abandoned SOCCER

By Craig MacKenzie BAXTER teeters on the edge of the State 4 South relegation abyss after the controversial abandonment of Saturday’s clutch away fixture against Hampton Park United. Baxter was losing 2-0 in the first half when the decision of referee Zhihao Lu to give Baxter striker Liam Kilner a second yellow card triggered a reaction that saw his brother and Baxter captain Owen Kilner also sent off. Their father and Baxter senior coach Roy Kilner believes that he also was sent off as Saturday’s clash descended into farce. Referee Lu abandoned the match in the 39th minute and Roy Kilner claims that Lu cited abuse and threatening behaviour from both sides as the reasons. It’s understood that the allegation that will be levelled against Owen and Roy Kilner is that they directed offensive language towards the match official, which the family patriarch will dispute at the tribunal. And he may have a powerful ally in assistant referee and former Baxter captain Frank Osei-Ntim. “I didn’t make the comment that the referee claims I made and big Frank thought that the comment didn’t come from me but from someone else on our bench,” Roy Kilner said. However, Lu is an experienced referee having officiated at FFV matches for over 10 years and has been an assistant referee at NPL level so Baxter has a mountain to climb if it’s to convince the tribunal that Lu got it wrong. In NPL2 East news Langwarrin’s 2-1 away win over Whittlesea Ranges on Saturday looks to have secured the club’s place in the elite competition for another season. With a threadbare squad mainly due to suspension veteran Langy boss Gus Macleod gave Andy McLean the task of running the front line and the big Scot didn’t let him down. McLean was at the back post to head home a Boris Ovcin cross in the 15th minute but a long-range strike from Jose Luis Ramires Soto in the 18th minute made it 1-1. In the 37th minute, a rare glancing header from Ovcin from a Viktor Medini free-kick restored Langy’s lead. The second half was an arm wrestle although Whittlesea put Langy under intense pressure for the last 15 minutes but couldn’t break through. In the 97th minute, the home side was reduced to 10 men when substitute Matthew Iuliano received a straight red.

Langwarrin’s under-20s lost 3-1 but Langy’s best was 16-year-old Brodie Jones while debuts were handed to Dylan Fisher, 15, and Noah Green, 16. As we went to print US import Michaela Dooley was due to make her debut for local NPLW outfit Southern United against Bulleen at Monterey Reserve on Sunday. Earlier in the day Southern’s under12s beat Bulleen 3-2 with Emilia Ingles scoring twice for Southern, her second a header following a Lauren Riha corner. Southern’s other scorer was Rhiannon Kelleher from a free-kick. The under-14s maintained their three-point lead at the top of the ladder with a 2-1 win thanks to goals from Rhys McKenna. Southern’s under-16s lost 2-0 but striker Haylea Porter is having a remarkable season with 15 goals in 20 games in a side near the foot of the ladder. She is second on the league’s leading scorers’ list behind local teenage prodigy Alana Murphy. In State 1 South-East news Mornington scored three goals in the first 18 minutes eventually running out a comfortable 4-1 winner over South Springvale at Warner Reserve on Saturday. Max Etheridge opened the scoring with a header amid claims that the ball had already crossed the line following a Sammy Orritt shot that came off the bar. Keegan Ziada was at the back post to head home an Orritt cross a few minutes later and a second Ziada goal ensured that the visitors were in cruise control at half-time.

Omar Guardiola made it 4-0 in the 61st minute before Jason Ricciuti scored for the home side in the 84th minute. In State 2 South-East news Frankston Pines defied the odds by toppling promotion candidate Knox City 3-1 at Monterey Reserve on Saturday. Pines gaffer Paul Williams had recently switched experienced defender Lewis Potter into an attacking midfield role and in the 7th minute a cross from the right found Potter who slotted the ball past Knox keeper Colin McCormack from 10 metres. Two minutes into the second half another Potter strike made it 2-0 after a Ben Millward cross from the right was dummied by big Ioasa Saemo. A penalty converted by Paul McEvoy in the 77th minute after Ross Robertson handled inside the area gave Knox some hope but Yosoph Zara’s 90th-minute free-kick sealed the visitors’ fate. The match ended on a sour note when Enes Sivic of Knox and Saemo were red carded in injury time. A few kilometres away Peninsula Strikers continued their late bid for survival with a 4-2 home win over Mooroolbark. Against the run of play, Mooroolbark was awarded a penalty in the 33rd minute after Alex van Heerwarden handled and former Langy striker Sam Klepac converted from the spot. Five minutes later Strikers won a penalty but van Heerwarden hit the post and the home side had to wait until first-half injury time to level thanks to Nathan Smith after great lead-up play by John Prescott.

Strikers dominated the second half and hit the front in the 55th minute thanks to a Danny Brookes free-kick. But Mooroolbark hit back in the 80th minute when Tom Hawkins was ruled to have fouled an opponent inside the area with Klepac nabbing his second from the spot. Brandon Jansz had put in a tremendous shift and was rewarded in the 83rd minute after chasing down a long ball and opening his account for Strikers. A minute later Prescott strolled past three opponents and finished well to round off the scoreline. Harry McCartney reports that Seaford United lost 3-0 at home to local rival Skye United in their State 3 SouthEast derby on Saturday. Skye opened the scoring after just six minutes when a free-kick by Mark O’Connor nestled in the right-hand side of the Seaford net. After Caleb Nicholes made it 2-0 in the 29th minute, the wheels seemed to fall off for the home side and Skye dominated for the rest of the half. Although Seaford had their chances in the second period Skye was the better side and when Tom Pollock received a red card in the 83rd minute Seaford was staring down the barrel. The final nail in the Tigers’ coffin came in the 88th minute with a clinical finish from substitute Chris Driver after a one-two with Nicholes. In State 5 South news title challengers Somerville Eagles and Old Mentonians had to settle for a point each after drawing 1-1 at Tyabb Central Recreation Reserve on Saturday.

Greening struck the bar in the 5th minute and three minutes later the visitors hit the front. A slick interpassing move down the left between Chris Gibson and James Hilton ended with the latter squaring the ball for striker Marcus Spivey to score from close range. Old Mentonians looked dangerous on the break while also keeping a close check on Greening and making life hard for the league’s equal leading scorer. Gibson’s low shot in the 19th minute was well saved by Somerville keeper Brad Klarenbeek and five minutes later a Harry Chapman corner was headed firmly by Ash Scholes but wide of the mark. In the 41st minute Old Mentonians failed to clear following a corner and although Jarryd Lymer did well to chest the ball down he sent his volley over the bar. Despite missing a host of regular starters Somerville kept pressing for an equaliser and eventually it came and there are no prizes for guessing who scored. In the 78th minute, Greening was given enough time on the left of the area to pick his spot and his pinpoint sidefoot volley sent the ball past Old Mentonians keeper Chris Gibbs. The final act in this contest was a header from Chapman who sent the ball just wide as a collective groan came from the home team fans. Fellow State 5 South side Aspendale Stingrays defeated Drouin Dragons 3-1 at home on Saturday with goals from Domenic Paul (2) and James Strong. Aspendale’s new changerooms at Jack Grut Reserve were officially opened last week with local, state and federal governments represented and an announcement of a state government grant to install floodlights at the venue is expected this week.

Footy girls enjoy wins run By Ben Triandafillou THE Rosebud Junior Football Club girl’s under15s side is hoping to keep an impressive 11-game winning streak going, with just three matches left in the season. The girl’s side, which is made up of mainly first season players, has gone from strength to strength throughout the season, with many of the players making the transition from basketball, netball or dancing. Team manager Mel Peterson, who has two daughters are in the undefeated side, said football has been a great outlet for the girls who are wanting to give it a go. “They all just absolutely love it,” she said. “The only trouble we’ve had is the girls enjoying it too much and celebrating too long.” Their successful run can be put down to a number of factors, from their coaching staff of Greg Hilton and Brett McRae to their will to win, but one factor that has made a huge difference for the side is having the mixture of experienced and inexperienced players in the team. “There are probably 10-12 girls that have played a season before with the rest starting to come through, but they’ve really been able to pick up the skills quite quickly from the older girls,” Peterson said.

“The leadership group has been great with bringing what they’ve learnt from interleague training back to the group so that all the new girls can benefit from it as well.” Peterson said that learning the rules is probably the hardest part to pick up for the new players but quite a few of them are showing “real talent”. “There’s a 12-year-old in the side who is fantastic and there are a number of other new girls who you can see will be really good footy players.” Football has also been great fitness-wise for the girls. “There are some girls that couldn’t run a lap of the oval when they first started but are now doing 10 rounds of it, from top to bottom,” Peterson said. “Football is great for them as it’s for all shapes and sizes, and with so many different positions it caters for everyone.” The Rosebud Football Club is hoping to bring some more girls into the sport by running a few free training sessions at Olympic Park, Rosebud for girls aged 10-14 years old. The sessions kicked off last Friday 27th July but will continue to run for a further two weeks, every Friday from 4-5pm. If you’re interested in joining the girls or going along for the sessions, contact Mel Peterson on 0424 946 945.

Waves, Saints both suffer defeats NETBALL

By Ben Triandafillou THE Peninsula Waves and Southern Saints suffered respective blows from the Geelong Cougars and Hawks Netball in round 14 of the Bupa Victorian Netball League. Peninsula Waves struggled to match it with the Geelong Cougars as they run away with a 17 and 18-goal victory in the championship (49-66) and division one (45-63) games. Jess Maher put in a top performance for the Waves in goalkeeper and goal defence, while her sister, Alex Maher, was also dominant in the division one match, shooting at an 87 per cent success rate in both goal shooter and goal attack. The fourth-ranked under-19s Peninsula Waves side remains finals bound despite an 8-goal loss to the 2017 premiers and current second placed team, Geelong Cougars (44-52). Sussu Liai was awarded the 3 MVP votes from the umpires after her performance in goal defence. The Southern Saints suffered a similar fate against Hawks Netball with a seven and 11-goal defeat in their championship (51-44) and division one (53-42) matches.

The Southern Saints led by three goals in the championship game at quarter time, but weren’t able to maintain the intensity that the Hawks bought. Kirsty Clark (goal defence) and Samantha Silvester (goal shooter) were both standout players on court. In the division one game, the Hawks took an early lead and maintained the margin throughout the match despite a stellar fourth quarter performance where the Saints shot 14 goals to the Hawks’ nine. Ella Quinlan had an exceptional game, shooting 23 goals from 25 attempts (92 per cent success rate). Similar to their championship match, the Saints had a promising start in their under-19s game, leading by one goal at quarter time. However, the Hawks were quick to correct their mistakes and eventually claimed the victory by 17 goals (51-34). Goalkeeper Mikaela Dakic put the Hawks shooters to the test and was voted the best Saint’s player on court. The Southern Saints will travel as visitors to Diamond Creek in round 15 to compete against DC North East Blaze, while the Peninsula Waves will host their one and only home game of the season against Boroondara Express on Saturday 28 July.

Junior athletes race to nationals MORNINGTON Little Athletics (MLAC) will have five talented juniors competing at the National Schools Cross Country Championships on the Sunshine Coast next month. Ollie Pratt, Joel Bell, Declyn Tanner, Archie Hewett and Hamish Terris will make their way up north for the national championships on Friday 24-27 August after their gutsy performances against some of the state’s best junior runners on Thursday 19 July. With numerous other MLAC athletes also competing at Bundoora Park for the state championships, it was Archie Hewett (Boys 12/13yo Primary) and Joel Bell (Boys 12/13 yo Secondary) who came away with

the top performances with runner-up finishes in their respected age groups. Declyn Tanner (Girls 11yo Primary), who made it to nationals last year, and Kunyung Primary School student, Hamish Terris (Boys 12/13yo Primary) claimed fourth in their age groups, while Ollie Pratt (Boys 12/13 yo Secondary) finished in seventh position for Mornington Secondary College. Joel and Ollie were also part of the winning school team for the Boys 12/13 yo Secondary group as the Mornington Secondary College claimed first with five boys competing in the age group. Mornington Little Athletics Club secretary, Lisa Henry, said it was an amazing achievement for the athletes

in a very tough competition. “We are pretty excited to get our own athletes up there and see them compete nationally,” she said. “They need to self-fund it all, including their uniform, flights and accommodation which is why they have started to make their own GoFundMe projects. “Mornington Holden has sponsored the trip so it’s great to have them making it easier for our athletes.” If you’d like to support the junior athletes, email Lisa Henry at lhenry@ morningtonlittleaths.org Ben Triandafillou Fast feet: Mornington Secondary College students, Joel Bell and Ollie Pratt, race their way to the National Cross Country Championships.

Peninsula sides take winning form to finals BASKETBALL

By Ben Triandafillou THE Finals Series kicks off on Saturday 4 August in the Big V, with several of the Mornington Peninsula sides still in the running for the championship trophies. The Chelsea Gulls division one men’s side is one of them, having been low flying throughout this season. The Gulls have put together 13 wins ina-row after round 17, and have claimed 20 victories from their 23 matches. Chelsea Gulls head coach Peter Caspersz is hoping that winning momentum can continue through to the finals. “We’ve been flying,” he said. “But without getting ahead of ourselves we still need to put it together in the finals.” “All the players – touch wood – are playing at their best with many of the players from the bench coming on to make a difference.” Their successful run has taken away a lot of the pressure which the Gulls faced last season as they scrambled to make the cut for the finals. The Gulls ended up making the grand final and finished runners-up last season, so they’ll be out to make amends this time around. The Gulls sit comfortably at the top of the table and will enjoy a bye in the opening round of the series while the Westernport Steelers, who have also secured their spot and a home final, will be striving to jump into second spot. Westernport Steelers Basketball operations manager, Tyler Molloy, said that it is still statistically possible for the side to snatch second and gain a bye in the opening week. “Everything would need to fit perfectly for us to get second, though,” he said. Molloy said that the side had a patch in the middle of the season which set them slightly

behind but their form recently is giving them confidence heading into the finals. “We lost our captain (Matt Pollard) a few weeks back with a torn Achilles, but everyone else seems to be in great form at the moment,” he said. “Our import, Dylan Travis, has more or less locked up the scoring title for the season which is great to see, and he’s looking pretty good for the MVP award too.” The Southern Peninsula Sharks division two men’s side have grabbed a home final following their dominant victory over Camberwell Dragons (69-52) in round 17, while their state championship women’s side, who have already secured a spot in the finals, will be looking to also grab a home final with a victory in round 18 against seventh-placed, Keilor Thunder. However, Southern Peninsula Sharks basketball operations manager, Lucas Allen, said that the women’s victory in round 18 won’t necessarily guarantee them the home game. “Hume City (fourth) would still need to lose for the women to move into fourth place and get the home final,” he said. “If they do get the home final they will play them (Hume City) again. They were narrowly beaten by them [in round 17] but I think they certainly have a good opportunity to turn it around and grab that win.” For the men, they have had just the one loss in their past six games, with Allen putting that down to injuries. “Their loss against Coburg came on the back of their fourth game in two weekends,” he said. “That does take it out of the players and the injuries probably took its toll. If everything goes right [through the finals] then we will see them (Coburg) in the second round.”
