Gas delay an ‘opportunity’ Keith Platt keith@mpnews.com.au AN announcement that AGL is delaying its plans to import gas through Crib Point by one year has renewed calls for the power companies and governments to work towards “a real renewable energy future”. “The delay comes amid nationwide fury that Australians are paying some of the highest gas prices in the world while Australia remains the number one gas exporter,” Save Westernport president Louise Page said. While the community group and Environment Victoria want the planned floating gas import terminal “scrapped altogether”, Ms Page said the delay was “an opportunity to do better”. “We call on the Premier Daniel Andrews, federal MP for Flinders Greg Hunt and AGL CEO Brett Redman to reject business-as-usual fixes that anchor us to the energy past.” Environment Victoria campaigns manager Dr Nicholas Aberle said AGL being “happy” to delay the project “shows that their claims about potential gas shortfalls have been exaggerated”. AGL announced last Friday (28 June) that it expected “first gas to be delivered” from its “proposed” gas import jetty at Crib Point in the second half of the 2022 financial year, one year later than previously announced. The state government is awaiting the outcome of an environmental effects statement (EES) before deciding on the plan. Success of the proposal also depends on the building of a gas pipeline from Crib Point to Packenham, which is also being opposed because of its use of farmland. AGL says the delay is being caused by its decision to use the Hoegh Esperanza as the floating storage and regasification unit (FSRU) instead of the Hoegh Giant. “AGL believes the Esperanza better fits timing and operational requirements arising from the environment effects statement (EES) process currently being undertaken by the Victorian government,” the company stated in a “community update”. “Also, in response to the local communities strongly held views about the unique environment in Western Port and that the Ramsar wet-

MEMBERS of the Save Westernport group fighting to stop a gas import terminal at Crib Point were disappointed when they were unable to

present AGL CEO Brett Redman with a 17,000-signature petition while he was in Melbourne for Australian Energy Week (10-14 June). Instead, the

land must be protected, AGL has heard the need to fully assess any seasonal variations in marine the environment around the proposed FSRU site at Crib Point, and to present the full data transparently at EES exhibition,” AGL’s project director Ricky McNally said. “We genuinely respect the work of local community groups like Save Westernport, who have vocally and vigorously worked to protect the en-

demonstrators’ petition was presented to a picture of Mr Redman attached to a stick. Although he did not receive the petition or hear directly from

vironment and we have listened to them.” Dr Aberle said AGL’s change of FSRU was a “positive” attempt to reduce the impact of its project on Western Port’s marine environment, “but they still can’t escape damaging the climate through liquefying and transporting gas – gas which may have actually been exported from Australia in the first place”. “The smarter alternative is reducing gas con-

sumption, not expanding supply, so neither Western Port nor the climate need to be damaged. This could cut millions of tonnes of CO2 from Victoria and help homes and businesses save on their energy bills,” Dr Aberle said. “AGL’s terminal would acquire gas at international prices, so importing gas will do nothing to reduce gas prices in Australia. High prices are here to stay.”

Shire to back airshow if permit sought Keith Platt keith@mpnews.com.au MORNINGTON Peninsula Shire’s requirement that Peninsula Aero Club conform to planning rules could jeopardise the staging of next year’s air show at Tyabb airfield. Club president Jack Vevers sees the shire’s insistence that the club seek a planning permit - as normally required for big events - as “blackmail”. The mayor, Cr David Gill, says the club and businesses associated with the airfield should conform to planning regulations. Mr Vevers on Sunday issued a news release claiming the shire had told the club it “will not be supporting a permit application to run the air show in 2020”. Not so, said Cr Gill: “[They] should just put in a permit application and stop misleading people. “We will work with them to make sure they get a permit for the air show. “We agree the air show is good for the peninsula, but they should stop this nonsense.” Mr Vevers said he had been told the shire “would not accept a secondary consent application as they have always done previously”. “We normally just write to the council and fill in a form which gives us a period to vary our permit so we can run the air show - say, seven days. It’s never been an issue before. “Now they have told me they want a full planning application before they will even consider it, but that would open up our permits so that they [can]

get full control of the airfield. “They have a win at any cost attitude. They are using the issue as blackmail.” Cr Gill has rejected suggestions that the council is trying to shut down Tyabb airfield or businesses operating there. He said the shire wants to “work out the permit and zoning concerns”.

5979 1382

“There has been a lot of misleading publicity about the airfield and it is now time that our community know the facts,” Cr Gill said. “The council has been trying to resolve the issues including lack of permits, the need for a masterplan and a noise abatement plan, possible rezoning requirements and simply a club willingness to work with neighbours via the ex-

isting community reference group.” Under the Planning and Environment Act, 1987 businesses can be fined $1087 for operating without permits. Cr Gill’s statement follows council’s receipt of a report by a Queen’s Counsel that reportedly showed some businesses associated with the airfield were operating without the required permits. The News has asked for a

copy of the ratepayer-funded report. Cr Gill said other businesses “must be a little perplexed that they are required to hang their permits on their walls and abide by conditions while at least some private airfield businesses aim to self-regulate within a largely residential area”. “For decades now the substitute for the rational resolution of problems has been to ramp up the rhetoric and create an ‘us against them’ scenario while clouding the real issues,” he said. “This leaves me wondering how this is going to help the workers and businesses involved. “The reality is that complex town planning matters will only be resolved by negotiation and applying standard regulations, not by any amount of abusive or disingenuous campaigning.” Cr Gill said that contrary to a report in The News (“Airfield reopens after permit talks” 25/6/19) he was “warmly welcomed” to an open day last month at the airfield. “It was surprising and untrue to read that I wasn’t welcome and didn’t know what I was talking about. There were, though, some who were only prepared to argue and make statements in order to gather support to put pressure on any council decisions,” he said. “The shire has spent hundreds of thousands of dollars assisting the airfield in the past and I hope continues to help ensure the viability of the businesses involved. “I listen to all, but that doesn’t mean just agreeing, no matter how influential one group may be. Our community would expect nothing less.” With Stephen Taylor

Shire digs in over easing quarry rules Keith Platt keith@mpnews.com.au MORNINGTON Peninsula Shire is opposing state government moves to relax planning rules for quarries. The shire’s opposition to extending the time within which an extractive industry must start operating and how long a quarry can remain idle comes at the same time that the government is considering the opening of another quarry in Boundary Road, Dromana. With the planning decision taken out of its hands, the shire has already voiced its opposition to Hillview Quarries’ plan for the 38 hectare, 190-metre deep quarry, but the government will make the final decision. The government says it is committed to changing planning laws surrounding extractive industries to provide greater flexibility for the start of extractive industry operations and periods of inactivity; to prevent the premature expiry of planning permits; and, enable quarrying sites to respond to market conditions to quickly increase or decrease production. The proposed changes to follow a August 2018 joint ministerial statement which called for “a better approach for land use planning and regulations that will assist quarries to keep operating and new sites to develop alongside growing suburbs and communities”.

The shire has already opposed Hillview Quarries’ plan for the 38 hectare, 190-metre deep quarry at Dromana Included in the changes since recommended by the Department of Environment, Land, Water and Planning (DELWP) and the Department of Jobs, Precincts and Regions (DJPR) are extending the time within which a project must be started after the issuing of a permit from two to five years and possibly allowing the permit to run forever, even if there is no quarrying being undertaken. The shire says allowing five years before a quarry starts operation would be unreasonable and create uncertainty “in community expectations around land use”. In its submission to the government, the shire says it is “well placed” to “seek to ensure that resulting planning provisions are appropriate for industry, council and communities alike”. Quarries in the shire include a sand quarry in Truemans Road, Fingal, granite quarries in Boundary Road and Manna Street, Dromana; Balnarring Road, Tuerong; and, a clay quarry in Pottery Road, Somerville.

The fight against Hillview’s latest proposal is being led at the community level by the Peninsula Preservation Group which in 2013 was at loggerheads with the same company when it wanted to convert the disused Pioneer quarry into a rubbish tip. The Environment Protection Authority eventually rejected the tip plan. The group’s SaveArthursSeat website says Hillview is now “selling” its plans for a new quarry “as a boon for our children’s future housing and roads”. “While disused quarries are being converted into popular attractions worldwide, our state Minister for Planning, Richard Wynne, has allowed Hillview to bypass council planning permit requirements for a quarry which will destroy the Arthurs Seat landscape,” the website states. Flyers being letterboxed by the Peninsula Preservation Group say the new quarry “adjoins Arthurs Seat State Park which has one of the state’s highest levels of biodiversity”. “A sizeable chunk of the escarpment will be blasted away, significantly changing the shape of the landscape and leaving a massive pit that will be a permanent scar. Damage on this scale cannot be rehabilitated.” The flyer also quotes Liberal Flinders MP Greg Hunt and the Labor MP for Dromana as also opposing the new quarry.

Boom arm broken A CAR snapped off a boom gate arm at the railway crossing on Baxter-Tooraddin Road, Baxter, Monday 1 July. The incident about 11.40am was said to have caused “significant damage” to the operation of the crossing gates near Hawkins Road. Somerville Highway Patrol members manned the crossing until a railway repair crew arrived. Metro Trains media advisor James Ireland said the boom arm was replaced and tested at 12.48pm and the crossing was “back to normal” soon after. It is unclear whether the motorist stopped or how the incident was reported.

Fallen tree POLICE closed Frankston-Flinders Road to traffic yesterday (Monday 1 July) after a large tree fell bringing down power lines, 11.43am. Sergeant David Collins, of Somerville Highway Patrol, said the first tree destabilised a second large tree’s roots making it unsafe near the intersection of Hawkins and Eramosa roads. He said United Energy crews were waiting on VicRoads tree maintenance crews making the second tree safe before reconnecting downed power lines.

Speed, wet road combine in epic fail

Fatal near Flinders A MAN died in a two-car collision near Flinders on Wednesday afternoon. He was driving one of two vehicles which collided on Boneo Road near Mornington-Flinders Road just before 4.30pm. The man was the only occupant of one of the vehicles and died at the scene. A man and woman in the other vehicle were treated for minor injuries. The cause of the collision is being investigated.

Manuel following a fatal stabbing at Chelsea Heights, Monday 17 June. Homicide Squad detectives say the 27-yearold Frankston man, pictured right, is probably being harboured by an associate. He is wanted following the death of 44-yearold Bonbeach man Ricky Thompson after the pair was involved in an argument in the car park of a hotel on Springvale Road, 3.35am. Thompson was stabbed in the incident and died in hospital next day. It’s believed the men knew each other. Manuel is known to frequent the Frankston area, although police are keen to hear from anyone who thinks he may be elsewhere. “We think Manuel has gone to ground and I would strongly reiterate that if he is being harboured by someone, then that person risks committing a serious offence as well,” Detective Inspector Andrew Stamper, of the Homicide Squad, said. “There will be people out there who know

where Alex is – that could be family, friends or other associates – and we are calling on them to do the right thing and come forward. “We are also calling on Alex to make contact with police who are actively searching for him. It is only a matter of time before we catch up with him.” Manuel is described as 180cm tall with a medium build, blue eyes, short dark hair and an olive complexion. Anyone who sees him is urged not to approach but to call triple zero immediately. Anyone with information is urged to contact Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000 or submit a confidential crime report at crimestoppersvic. com.au

Slept through robbery A BRAZEN burglar stole a credit card while a woman was asleep in a unit at Dromana Holiday Village, Nepean Highway, Dromana, overnight Wednesday 26 June. 12404323-DJ46-18

“DRIVING too fast on a wet road – what could possibly go wrong?” asked Somerville Highway Patrol’s Greg Wolfe. Well, you could run off the road, crash into a tree and roll your car, like the driver of this HSV Maloo ute did in Watt Road, Mornington, 7.30pm, Thursday 20 June. “The mid-30s Langwarrin man had just overtaken a mate before the collision,” Senior Constable Wolfe said. “He was extremely fortunate to climb out of the vehicle with just a blood nose. “Alcohol and drug tests were both negative. However, the driver is facing a range of other road policing charges and is likely to be summonsed to court at a later date.” The roads were wet and driving conditions poor at the time of the crash. “Please slow down, drive according to the conditions and within the speed limit,” Senior Constable Wolfe said.

Detective Senior Sergeant Eddie Logonder, of Somerville CIU, said the 65-year-old woman’s card had already been used by the time the theft was reported.

Car break-ins A SPATE of car break-ins at Safety Beach, Capel Sound and Mt Martha is annoying police – and keeping them busy. Detective Senior Sergeant Eddie Logonder, of Somerville CIU, said owners were playing into thieves’ hands by leaving cars unlocked and valuables in full view. While nothing major has been taken, thieves had bought several items on stolen credit cards, he said.

The free “community forum” is on Saturday 3 August. Bookings at www. trybooking.com/BDIIG

Blankets to cover sensory needs IMPROVING the well-being of some of the most vulnerable people in the community is a cause worth pursuing. So, a project to relieve the boredom and cognitive decline of people living with dementia and other disabilities deserves special attention. Advance Community College project supervisor Sam Knowles and her team are producing stimulation materials for elderly residents designed to be both soothing and help them retain their motor skills. The items include sensory blankets, pillows and other “fiddle” items, with a variety of stimulatory elements, such as different colours and textures, and tactile elements, such as beads, ribbons, zips and buttons. The features stimulate the residents’ senses and have positive and beneficial effects on their quality of life and general well-being. “Distraction therapy is a good way to reduce levels of anxiety,” experienced aged care worker Ms Knowles said. “The stimulation of sensory activity, in a safe environment, is known to induce positive emotions. “The items offer the residents a chance to practise their fine motor skills, such as tying ribbons, connect-

ing hooks and eyes, and running zips up and down. Other items are beads in a bag to move with the fingers and to hear jangle as they move, changing colours to catch the eye, feeling different textures, and popping toys or characters in and out of a pocket to amuse, surprise or delight.” Somerville residential care home SomerCare is the first to receive the completed items. Shelley Ford, from its leisure and well-being unit,

described the donated sensory fiddle blankets as “adorable” and said they were “much loved by the residents”. She said residents were “really engaged when using them and they provided good value”. A footy blanket may be their next creation. SomerCare is discussing the idea of the blanket with Ms Knowles to maintain residents’ long-held interests and arouse pleasant memories of their favourite team. Team members have benefitted from

the project, too, with Ms Knowles saying she felt a sense of achievement in being part of the project. “It has certainly helped me gain self-confidence in my abilities and tremendous satisfaction from donating to the community, with such positive feedback,” she said. The project being run through the Hastings Community Contribution Project 2019, received a federal government Work for the Dole grant. Stephen Taylor

JUSTICES of the Peace Peter Fulton and Eric Sangwell were elected secretary and treasurer of the Mornington Peninsula branch of Honorary Justices at their meeting at Rosebud police station recently. Chairman Bob Bolch had already been elected at a previous meeting. During general business they discussed legal documents, including enduring power of attorney and the appointment of a medical treatment decision maker. Both documents can be witnessed by JPs or bail justices, while an advance care directive must be signed by a registered medical practitioner. These free legal documents are included in the book Take Control available at the Office of the Public Advocate, call 1300 309 337, or can be downloaded at publicadvocate.vic. gov.au To find a JP or bail justice call that number or search JPs Victoria.

‘Airfield needs social licence to operate’ After decades of uncertainty Mornington Peninsula Shire Council has taken appropriate action to comply with its statutory obligations as the responsible authority in matters related to the non-CASA regulated privately-owned and operated Tyabb aeroplane landing ground. Older residents will remember the 2004 GHD consultants’ report from which flowed a range of shire initiatives to ensure the continued operation of the landing ground in a manner acceptable to the local community. Most of those initiatives failed. As stated in its recent press release the shire, for a decade, has tried unsuccessfully to negotiate a modernisation of the airfield operating permits that do not reflect the growth of operations from a handful of aircraft in 1965 to the now (approximately) 180 kept at the airfield. The recent planner’s report into runway widening and curfew removal was a clear and concise evaluation of the current situation and fulfilled the requirement of orderly and proper planning. Peninsula Aero Club members may have been better served had their hierarchy not removed the club from that planning process at the last minute. The report highlighted the need for the airfield master plan and noise management plan, which the airfield operators committed to in December 2017, and one can only wonder why, 18 months on, they have not fulfilled that obligation. The shire has no option other than to seek advice to allow it to undertake its legislative obligations and the councillors and officers are to be congratulated and supported for the initiative in appointing high level legal and planning experts to have this matter now under due process. The Tyabb Airfield Precinct Plan consultants (2017) made note that private airfields need a social licence to operate and one can only hope

that this current shire initiative will see that objective fulfilled. Peter Davis, Tyabb

Shire is to blame I must point out that David Lines is using the usual objector’s line that the Peninsula Aero Club is out of control by his remark that the club “has grown exponentially since 1964 to housing over 180 aircraft” (“Airfield businesses must obey the law of the land” Letters 25/6/19). This is nonsense and a total exaggeration of the facts. Of the dozen or so aircraft the PAC actually operates, it owns only around four, as I understand. The rest are cross-hired from owners, who may be aero club members or may not be. All the other aircraft there are privately owned and nothing to do with the club. Lines also states that because certified, that is licenced airports are highly regulated and because Tyabb is not licenced, he infers that Rafferty’s rules apply there and that anything goes. What biased rubbish. An airport that is inside of services-controlled airspace is required to be licenced. As the nearest controlled airspace to Tyabb is 4000ft above it and it is therefore outside of it, it is not required to be licenced. That does not mean that operations at Tyabb are not regulated. All civil flying concerns, including flying schools, charter operators and aircraft maintenance facilities operated under strict rules and regulations, issued by the federal authority, Civil Aviation Safety Authority (CASA). The club’s flying school, for example, operates under a flying school licence issued by CASA and its predecessor organisations, such as the Department of Civil Aviation, and has done so ever since it began. What laws of the land are supposed to have been broken at the airfield anyway?

As for the noise being made by aircraft. They have engines just like road vehicles, which also make noise, so why not complain about them too? The issue of houses right next to an aerodrome is not a new one, unfortunately. This has also happened at Moorabbin, Essendon and many other aerodromes long before Tyabb. The real problem is that for some reason local councils seem to be attracted to the land around airfields as ideal places for housing development. They are the ones who should be condemned for these situations because the attraction of the extra rates they reap from the unsuspecting buyers of these properties seems to overcome any common sense in their approval of such developments. Cam Care, Mornington

Dogged Coalition There’s a house up the road, seemingly unoccupied for months, with two guard dogs in the backyard. Every time I walk by (well, shuffle) they bark in a ferocious manner, bashing the side gate, seemingly to attack. As I shuffle by and pray they don’t escape, I can’t help drawing the connection with these guard dogs and our friendly Coalition government, the difference (obviously) is we opened our gate, in a sense the same gate, on 18 May, another three long years. It suddenly occurs to me; who feeds the dogs? Cliff Ellen, Rye

Missing manager Coppin Road, Sorrento property owners were advised in January by Mornington Peninsula Shire Council the manager they should contact if they had any queries regarding the construction of the footpath on their road. With construction underway, you can imagine my surprise a fortnight ago when I tried to contact the nominated manager to find he was away until mid July. Maybe it says it all about the way our council is managed as no updated advice had been provided to property owners. Bill Holmes, Sorrento

Establishing credentials I would like to issue an apology to John Cain if I misread his connection to the GetUp movement (“Community helper” Letters 15/6/19). I must have misunderstood when in the Letters pages in March, Mr Cain used the word “our” when describing the actions of GetUp in the Flinders election (“Independent GetUp! Letters 27/3/19). Obviously, my mistake so, as I said, I apologise. As to my community service ,which Mr Cain questions, well here’s a few: captain Moorooduc under-16s tennis, club champion Moorooduc under-16s cricket, committee Moorooduc Cricket Club, committee and foundation member Mt Martha Cricket Club, coach under-14s Mt Martha Cricket Club, coach, president and life member Mt Martha Junior Football Club; 23 years Mt Martha CFA, 21 years as an officer and committee of Mt Martha CFA, task forces to Kinglake, Cann River, Arthur’s Seat (twice) and Conbianbar with the CFA, Ash Wednesday fires as team leader; committee 2nd Mornington Sea Scouts; Mount Martha Hookers Angling Club committee; and seven years as secretary of the Mornington and District Pool Association. There are probably a few more, but you get the general idea. Michael G Free, Mt Martha

Don’t bet on game The Victorian Responsible Gambling Foundation’s 2018 community attitudes survey found 74 per cent of Victorians think adolescents are exposed to too much gambling advertising. That really bothers me. So I am delighted that more than 400 sporting clubs across Victoria have taken a stand by signing up to the Foundation’s Love the Game sporting club program and are saying no to sports betting sponsorship. This includes our 10 AFL teams, AFL Victoria, leagues and commissions, and hundreds of community clubs.

100 YEARS AGO THIS WEEK...

Settled out of court - Olsen V. Ritchie Compiled by Cameron McCullough WHEN this case was called on at the Frankston Court on Monday counsel immediately intimated that a settlement had been effected. Mr. Knight, P.M., and Messrs C. G. V. Williams, Jas. Grice, C. Grant and W. J. Oated, J’s.P., occupied the Bench. Mr McFarlane appeared for the plaintiff, and Mr Utber and Mr Maxwell represented defendant. Mr McFarlane addressing the Bench said the parties had talked over the position and a settlement had been arranged to withdraw complaint subject to the approval of the Court. It was alleged that defendant had made a number of accusations against Olsen and his son, imputing disloyalty in the case of Olsen senr., and reflecting on Olson jnr. because of his failure to enlist. Defendant was now prepared to express regret for what has taken place, and to admit that any such accusations were without foundation. Counsel stated that Olsen senr. had brothers who fought in the South African war and it could be proved that he had not a drop of German blood in his veins. As to Olsen junr. he was medically unfit for active service, and always had been, and, as a fact, had been rejected by the Senior Cadets owing to his physical condition, as defendant would admit, and was prepared to unreservedly withdraw anything he had said to the contrary. Defendant for the physical injury he had caused Olsen senr., by striking him, had agreed to pay £30 and £10 10s costs. Mr Maxwell, for defendant, endorsed

the terms of settlement as outlined by Mr McFarlane. The defendant regretted exceedingly the whole occurrence, and was now only desirous of doing the fair thing, Defendant would pay the assessed damages, as stated. In conclusion counsel expressed the hope that now peace was signed, all would make a new departure, and that people who had had differences arising out of the war, would make a fresh start. The Bench consented to the withdrawal. Another charge against the defendant, arising out of the same concurrence, involved the breaking of windows on the premises of the Peninsula Motor Garage Co. Mr W. S. Cook appeared for the Police, in this instance and consented to a withdrawal on defendant paying the cost of the damage £6 1s and on two other charges fines were recorded, against the defendant. *** PEACE! United Thanksgiving Service on Sunday (to-morrow.) Peace Celebrations Committee meet to-night, (Saturday) at 8. See ad. *** AN event that will probably prove an attraction to lovers of the spectacular is announced to take place in the Frankston Mechanics Hall, on Saturday (to night) under the auspices of the Returned Soldiers Association. The event is advertised as “Crowning of the ugly man,” and the man of the hour will be Mr Mark Brody, the winner of the recent competition held in connection with the Anzac Appeal. The “King” it is stated, will be magnificently robed for the occasion, and

he will be presented with a certificate which is being specially designed. A dance is to be held during the evening. *** Frankston School Committee The monthly meeting of the school committee was held at Frankston on Tuesday evening, when, there were present: Cr W. J.. Oates (chairman), Mark Brody (Correspondent), and Messrs Nicholson, H. Mc Comb, C. Johns L. Ward, and W. C. Young. The head teacher (Mr Jennings) reported that two officers from the Public Works Department had visited the school on the previous day, and it was likely that certain alterations to verandas and window screens would be effected. It was also likely that the department would undertake the erection of the bell. A vote of thanks was passed to Mr Gardiner for his offer to construct a ladder in connection with the boys gymnasium. Other suggested additions to the playground were discussed, and with the question of providing an Honor Roll, were held over pending further particulars. The head teacher stated that the Frankston School was well ahead of other schools in its class in the matter of collection for the Repatriation Fund. The committee decided to pay a visit to the school on Thursday next at 4 o’clock. *** DURING the week Cr W. J. Thwaites, J.P., Mayor of Queenscliffe, has been visiting this portion of the Flinders Electorate, in the interests of the Na-

tional Federation. As one of the organisers, he is specially concerned in the matter of enthusing new life into local branches, and as a whisper is heard that a dissolution of Parliament is looming in the near future, all friends of the organisation are expected to rally to the Standard. Mr Thwaites is well pleased with his reception at both Frankston and Somerville and where he was successful in enrolling many new members. On Friday he will open a branch of the Federation at Flinders, and on Wednesday the 9th inst he will attend a branch meeting at Frankston, in the hall, when it is hoped all members and intending members will attend. The business is election of officers for the year and other important business. *** TODAY (Saturday), at 2.15 p.m, a special train will leave Frankston for Mornington, returning at 5.30, after the football match between the Frankston and Mornington teams. Return tickets are being sold at 2s 6d, children half price. *** REV E. Tonkin will give a lantern talk on “Across America” in the local Methodist Church, on Tuesday evening next. The pictures include views of New York, Niagara Falls, and North American Indians. Mr Alison-Norris F. R. G. S. will assist. There will be musical items and refreshments. The admission will be a shilling, children half price. Proceeds to be devoted to the Trust Fund, *** A WELCOME home social will be

held in the Mechanics’ Hall’ on Friday evening July 11th, to welcome, home a number of our local boys recently returned from active service. (See advt. ) *** PROFOUND regret was expressed throughout the district on Wednesday last when it became known that Mr George Darcy had passed away. He was a member of the A.I.F. and since returning from the Front had been in very indifferent health, being specially affected by heart trouble. Deceased was a great favorite and his demise came as a great shock to his numerous friends. On returning from the war the late Mr Darcey married Miss Florrie McSweeney, of Frankston and sincere sympathy is felt for the widow and her little son. Deceased was one of five sons to enlist. He was the son of the late Mr James Darcy of Lauriston and Kyneton and his mother is still living in Frankston. The funeral took place on Thursday and was very largely attended. The cortège on reaching the railway bridge passed through two long lines of school children. The service at the grave was conducted by the Rev E. Tonkin and the impressiveness of the occasion was increased with the sounding of the Last Post. The beautiful wreaths were forwarded, including wreaths from the Frankston Branch of the Returned Soldiers’ Association, “Wattle” Club and the School children. *** FROM the pages of the Mornington Standard, 5 July 1919

Heel pain in the morning YOU’VE just started putting in the extra miles, walking or running to get fit, and suddenly putting weight on the base of the foot, near the heel makes it ache, and makes more training a painful prospect. That sharp pain in your heel can be a symptom of plantar fasciitis, a condition of the connective plantar fascia tissue in your foot, and traditionally very difficult to treat. Physiotherapist Melanie Jones says Plantar Fasciitis is an overuse injury that can feel as though you have a pebble in your shoe. At Back In Motion Balnarring, we have several solutions for this condition. Firstly, it is important to look at your whole lower limb biomechanics. As a result, we can work on your strength and flexibility in your leg and foot, prescribe orthotics, tape and teach taping, and use massage and ultrasound to reduce inflammation. We have a unique way of mobilizing your foot and teaching “foot core stability” to reduce pressure on the plantar fascia. Apart from the above solutions, there is a newer healing technology that is making a profound difference to Plantar fasciitis sufferers. Practice owner and physiotherapist, Paul Rowson says shockwave therapy is often useful, because the Plantar fascia is a connective tissue, not a muscle. “It puts a significant shockwave through the tissues

you apply it to,” Rowson says. “It is a pressure wave which brings blood flow to the area. Tendons and connective tissue do not have much blood supply and can take a long time to heal. Shockwave artificially stimulates the healing of the tendon. Shockwave therapy can also be used on Achilles tendonitis, tennis and golfer’s elbow, and rotator cuff tendon problems, and is usually most effective on long term chronic problems, rather than acute injuries. Both physios say that Shockwave is not the first line of treatment for injured patients. Physiotherapy and graded exercise are more likely in the first instance. For more stubborn conditions, shockwave has shown good results in other Back In Motion clinics. “The evidence at the moment suggests between three to five treatments are required, but most people should see an improvement within three sessions. It has a 90% success rate,” Jones says. The Shockwave therapy is administered for a three-minute period to the affected area during consecutive weekly appointments. “It is a bit of an uncomfortable sensation,” Jones says, “like most physio hands-on treatments with a little discomfort during the treatment. “ Rowson says,” After each session, most people get a significant reduction of pain and symptoms. Long term it stimulates healing, short term it reduces pain.”

Physiotherapists Melanie Jones (L) and Paul Rowson (R). Pictures: Yanni “Probably the best thing is, the effects are long lasting. It stops a lot of people having more invasive things like surgery or injections. The treatment is considered safe, but can produce skin reddening or bruising, short term pain, and cannot be used on people taking blood thinning

medications or with bleeding disorders.” “It is important to know that shock wave has a long-term effect. Most of the time you have good outcomes without having to do further treatment”

Shockwave therapy carries a $60 surcharge for every session (generally cannot be claimed from health funds) and is now available at Balnarring. Call in and speak to any of the physios, to see if it suits your condition.

The National Broadband Network (nbn) is a high speed broadband network designed to reach 100 per cent of Australian premises and provide the communications infrastructure to help us stop falling behind in an increasingly online world. nbn is committed to delivering leading edge broadband services to all Australians by leveraging the three types of technology available – ďŹ xed line, ďŹ xed wireless and satellite, depending on location. As part of the ďŹ xed radio (wireless) component of the Network, nbn is proposing to expand the existing radio network base stations at 1084 Stumpy Gully Road, Moorooduc, VIC 3933 (2/LP117341)(RFNSA Site No: 3933008). The works are to provide high quality wireless broadband services to customers in the surrounding localities. The proposed works on site will involve the upgrade of existing technology upon the facility including and not limited to the replacement and installation of new antennas, radiocommunication dishes and associated ancillary equipment to enhance transmitting technology. Furthermore the works will involve the replacement and addition of equipment shelters/ outdoor units adjacent to the facility. nbn regards the proposed installations as a Low Impact Facility under the Telecommunications (Low-Impact Facilities) Determination 2018. In these circumstances, it does not require planning approval from Council. This notiďŹ cation is undertaken in accordance with the requirements of Section 7 of the Mobile Phone Base Station Deployment Code 2018. Further information on this speciďŹ c proposal can be obtained by calling Visionstream on 1300 745 210. Written submissions can be sent to: nbn Planning Team, Locked Bag 4001, Moorabbin VIC 3189 or via email to nbnwirelessvic@visionstream.com.au. The closing date for submissions is 15th July 2019.

Bulldogs shock Stonecats DIVISION ONE

By Brodie Cowburn MORNINGTON have secured their second win for the year in a shock result against Frankston YCW. The Bulldogs got off on the right foot with an excellent first term. They went into the first break with a 17 point lead. Frankston YCW struggled badly all afternoon, and were not able to claw their way back into the contest. They scored 0.6 across the second and third quarters of the match. A three goals to zero final quarter saw the gap between the two sides close, but the Stonecats were too far behind to catch up. The final score read Frankston YCW 5.13 (43) to Mornington 9.4 (58). Matthew Caine proved the difference on the day, kicking five goals on his first game for the year. At the top end of the table, Pines claimed another win to continue their excellent year, They scored a victory over Edithvale-Aspendale at Regents Park. Both sides traded blows in a tight first half, with Pines heading into the half time break up by a point. After the main break the Pythons put their foot on the gas and established a buffer.

Pines had to work for it, but they eventually claimed the win 9.15 (69) to 12.13 (85). Shayne Allan worked hard for EdiAsp and kicked four goals. Luke Potts was named as Pines’ best.

At Emil Madsen Reserve, Mt Eliza played host to Sorrento. The Sharks have enjoyed a good year and look among the premiership favourites. They proved that with an impressive five goals to one first term

against the Redlegs. With a tough task ahead of them, Mt Eliza did well to stay in touch. They kept Sorrento goalless in the second quarter. After half time the Sharks ran away

with it. A five goals to one third term put the game beyond doubt. Sorrento ended up running away with a 22 point win 6.14 (50) to 10.12 (72). Captain-coach Luke Tapscott was best on ground, scoring four goals. Dromana got back on the winner’s board on Saturday in a low scoring scrap with the Frankston Bombers. Dromana looked to be in trouble early on, and were held to just one behind in the first term. They bounced back in the second, and went into half time five points up. In the second half the Bombers struggled, and couldn’t get the lead back. They ended up losing to Dromana 4.4 (28) to 7.7 (49). Rosebud hosted Bonbeach at Olympic Park in what would turn out to be a miserable afternoon for Bonbeach. The Sharks were woeful in front of goal, and at the three-quarter time break had failed to register a goal on the scoreboard. They had scored eight behinds without kicking a major. In the final quarter they finally scored a goal but it was little consolation. Bonbeach lost to Rosebud 7.11 (53) to 1.10 (16). Sean Downie kicked two goals, and was named as Rosebud’s best.

Blues fall short against Hillmen DIVISION TWO

By Brodie Cowburn HASTINGS have battled hard, but failed to defeat Red Hill at Thomas Barclay Oval on Saturday. The Hillmen have been near impossible to beat in 2019, but Hastings signalled their intent with a good first half. The Blues led at both quarter time and half time, but only by a goal. The Hillmen, who have been by far the best defensive side in the competition, held Hastings scoreless in the third quarter to get back into the contest. Hastings could only put one goal on the board in the final term, and eventually succumbed to defat.

The final score was Hastings 6.5 (41) to Red Hill 7.10 (52). Daniel Mcnamara was the Hillmen’s best, kicking four goals. Karingal prevailed against Somerville on Saturday, despite performing badly in front of goal. Karingal had the bulk of the scoring opportunities, but failed to capitalise throughout the afternoon. Karingal had 25 scoring shots for the afternoon, while Somerville had just 12. Despite the discrepancy, both sides scored 8 goals for the game. The Bulls got away with their poor goalkicking, and took the win 8.17 (65) to 8.4 (52). At RJ Rowley Reserve, Rye grinded

out a tough win at home against Devon Meadows. Devon Meadows started poorly and kicked just one behind in the first term, but bounced back to claim the lead by half time. Rye wrestled back control in the third term, and held a slim six point lead heading into the final quarter. They held on to get the win 7.12 (54) to 6.11 (47). Crib Point had a rough day at home against Chelsea, letting themselves down with poor kicking in front of goal. The Magpies, who have struggled throughout the year, had their share of opportunities in front of goal but failed

to make them count. They ended up with just two goals for the afternoon. Chelsea looked much the better side, and did what they needed to do to get the job done. Curtis Bywater was in good form, kicking four. The final scoreboard made for uncomfortable reading for Magpies fans. Chelsea claimed the win 2.12 (24) to 12.12 (84). Langwarrin had a better day at home, overcoming a half time deficit to defeat Tyabb. The Yabbies had a massive second quarter, kicking five goals to give them an eight point lead heading into the second half. Despite the positive signs, they were run over in the sec-

ond half. Langwarrin pushed ahead and claimed all four points with a 13.15 (93) to 11.6 (72) win. Blake Peach and Zach Andrewartha were among the best afield. Seaford travelled to Pearcedale, and had absolutely no trouble putting the home side away. The Tigers did the bulk of the damage in the third quarter, when they smashed Pearcedale with an eight goals to zero term. The final score read Pearcedale 6.3 (39) to Seaford 17.16 (118). Aaron Walton was best on ground, booting six goals for the victorious Seaford side.

From Sacramento to Southern SOCCER

By Craig MacKenzie SOUTHERN United just beat last week’s transfer deadline to register two clutch signings in US attacking midfielder Jennifer Lum and teenage holding midfielder Niamh McLure. The transfer window closed at 10am on Thursday and Southern player-coach Melissa Maizels was racing the clock for the club to register her two signings while waiting on news from another two targets. “I spoke to around eight players and was hoping to bring in four but I’m happy with the business we’ve done,” Maizels said. “This is a statement of intent from Southern and it lets people know that this club has big plans for next season.” Maizels had been contacted by an overseasbased player agent a couple of years ago trying to get her to play in the US and a recent contact with that agent led to the signing of California-based Lum, 24, who has an impressive scoring record. Southern secured private sponsorship for Lum and is hopeful that she can arrive in time to face South Melbourne on Saturday. The club expects visa approval and flights to be organised shortly. Lum played with Boca 92 juniors and Placer United and at university level with Sacramento State. She has won representative honours and multiple MVP awards. McLure is a former Southern and NTC player and the teenager returns to Monterey Reserve from Box Hill United. She was set to make her debut in Sunday’s away clash with Heidelberg United but the wild weekend weather made the Olympic Village pitch unplayable and all of Southern’s matches (senior and underage) were postponed. In NPL2 news Langwarrin had Scottish import John Baird to thank as he hit the mark twice on debut in the local club’s 2-1 home win over North Geelong last Saturday. The visitors were flying high in the West division of the elite regionalised competition and had gone into this contest just two points behind league leader Werribee City. However they were missing four players from their usual starting 11 including leading scorer Darius Madison. In difficult weather conditions Langy failed to hit the target in the first half while North Geelong couldn’t find a way past home team keeper Fraser MacLaren. It was a different matter in the second half and just two minutes in an unmarked Baird stole in at the back post for a simple sidefoot volley following a Jordan Templin corner swung over from the left. In the 64th minute Lachie McGrath slid in and levelled from close range following a Morgan Filer shot from the left of the area. But Baird wasn’t done yet and when big Anthony Banovac clattered into Langy target man Max Etheridge in the 70th minute the referee pointed to the spot and the Scot converted. The importance of the win was evident from the reaction of the Langy bench when the final whistle blew and players and coaching staff were still congratulating each other as they walked off to applause from local fans. In State 1 news Doveton’s season continued to unravel when it was comfortably beaten 4-2 by Mornington at Dallas Brooks Park on Saturday. Kyrom Kerr, 17, made his senior debut for Mornington and drew praise from head coach Adam Jamieson. “We played Kyrom in centre midfield and took him off with about 15 to go,” Jamieson said. “He had a really good game and he’s a very talented kid.” The contest was put out of Doveton’s reach in the first half. Josh Hine opened the scoring when he chested down a ball over the top and hammered it home from an angle inside the box. Two Sammy Orritt goals, the second when he ghosted in to strike a Craig Smart free-kick, sent the home side into the changerooms at the interval with a 3-0 lead. Orritt completed his hat-trick in the second period when he scored from the spot. In State 2 news Peninsula Strikers had a fine

3-1 away win over Berwick City last weekend and are back in the promotion hunt. Strikers are among a bunching field of runnerup aspirants behind tearaway league leader Boroondara-Carey Eagles. An early Paul McEvoy goal put Berwick City ahead but two Alpha Turay goals in two minutes, both from John Prescott assists, turned this contest around and Antun Vulic’s strike from just outside the area in first-half injury time settled the issue. In State 3 news Skye United pulled off the great escape coming from 2-0 down at half-time to beat Brighton 4-3 in a nerve-jangling contest at Skye Recreation Reserve on Saturday. A great long strike from David Nicholas on the half-hour and a Sean Mulcahy header in the 40th minute had the visitors in control. Nicholas hit the underside of the bar early in the second half but in the 52nd minute Skye substitute Maxim Avram applied enough pressure following a Mark O’Connor free-kick and the ball was bundled over the line to make it 2-1. Two minutes later Mitch Blake scored following up an Avram strike and although the assistant referee had his flag raised the goal eventually was given. Skye substitute Mikey Turner came on in the 75th minute and three minutes later his looping volley put Skye ahead for the first time. But a mixup at the back in the 83rd minute allowed Nicholas to break into a one-on-one with Skye custodian Jonathan Crook and the Brighton striker made no mistake to make it 3-3. However, there was one last twist to the tale as Blake was brought down in the box in the 94th minute and up stepped Daniel Walsh who is yet to miss from the spot this season and he buried the winner for Skye’s ninth win in 10 games. Frankston Pines lost 2-0 away to Bayside Argonauts on Saturday. Nothing can take away from a poor Pines’ performance but the club was bitterly disappointed with a series of refereeing decisions. In State 4 news Dandenong South defeated Baxter 3-2 at Tatterson Park last weekend while Seaford United’s away clash with Rowville Eagles was washed out. Baxter’s goals came from Lawrence Komba and substitute Abdull Darmanii but Dandenong grabbed the winner in the 87th minute. Central defensive pairing Izaak Barr and Matt McDermott could return from injury for Baxter’s home match on Saturday against Rowville Eagles. In State 5 news a Kieran Hughes hat-trick spearheaded Aspendale Stingrays’ thumping 7-0 home win over Pakenham United on Saturday. Aspendale was 5-0 up after 32 minutes and cruised throughout the second half.

Other scorers were Kenan Nuhanovic (2), Ryan Mravljak and Ben Garside Weinert. In another State 5 match what should have been a celebration of a remarkable goalscoring milestone from ace striker and player-coach David Greening turned into a nightmare last weekend

when Somerville lost 3-0 away to Knox United and Greening was sent off after receiving a second caution in the second half. The refereeing contributed to the stop-start nature of this contest as the match official regularly stopped play to talk to the Somerville bench. Bad light forced the match to be called off in the 79th minute but the result seems certain to stand. Greening’s send-off couldn’t have come at a worse time as he’ll miss Saturday’s clash with league leader Old Mentonians. Football Victoria will only promote the league champion this season as it undertakes a major league restructure so Somerville’s season could hinge on the outcome of this fixture. Rosebud’s away clash with Tullamarine on Saturday was washed out in both the seniors and reserves. This weekend’s games: FRIDAY, 8.30pm: Skye Utd v Ashburton Utd (Skye Recreation Reserve), Frankston Pines v Whitehorse Utd (Monterey Reserve). SATURDAY, 3pm: Langwarrin v Murray United (Lawton Park), Casey Comets v Mornington (Comets Stadium), Peninsula Strikers v Monbulk Rangers (Centenary Park), Baxter v Rowville Eagles (Baxter Park), Seaford Utd v Dingley Stars (North Seaford Reserve), Old Mentonians v Somerville Eagles (Mentone Grammar), Tullamarine v Aspendale Stingrays (Melrose Drive Reserve), Casey Panthers v Rosebud (Prospect Hill Reserve).
