Oarsome news for paddlers at Devilbend KAYAKERS and canoeists can now legally use Devilbend Natural Features Reserve, Tuerong, near Moorooduc. Parks Victoria has introduced rules allowing paddlers on a 47-hectare section of the former reservoir. Powered craft are prohibited. An exclusion zone has been set aside to provide habitat for wildlife. Earlier this year, Parks sought public comment on allowing non-powered boats on the water following research on their impacts on blue-billed ducks and other waterbirds by the Arthur Rylah Institute for Environmental Research. Most of the 96 submissions supported the boating plan. “Experiencing the park from a canoe or kayak offers a different perspective and greater connection with the beauty of the park, enhance fishing opportunities and another way to exercise or get active in the park,” Parks Victoria area chief ranger Georgia Kerr said. The reserve’s 44 species of birds includes eight which are listed as threatened. Since being opened to the public the reserve has become a popular fishing spot for estuary perch and trout which are regularly re-stocked by the Victorian Fisheries Authority. All-abilities visitors will be able to take their vehicles to the water’s edge with a permit from Parks Victoria. Details: call 13 19 63 or visit parks.vic.gov.au

Club’s new lease of life Stephen Taylor steve@mpnews.com.au AFTER a long battle Devilbend Golf Club has signed a 21-year lease with the Mornington Peninsula Shire, starting with a yearly rent of $10,233. The rent will increase three per cent annually. The new lease ends a bid by the shire to advertise the course is available for lease, as well as appointing a commercial manager (“Golf club leads scorecard in bid for lease”, The

News, 11/7/2017). In April, the shire’s property operations team leader Greg Collins said granting the club a third 21-year lease over the Crown land “would limit council control over the property to the terms and conditions of the lease”. However, his report was dropped without explanation from the agenda (“Golf club in the rough over lease”, The News, 25/4/17). The volunteer-run club’s president Brad Johnston said that it had been a “tough fight to overturn [the] recommendation to put the course out to

tender to find a commercial operator earlier in the year”. He said the club’s 450 members “were to be congratulated on their coordinated lobbying campaign which provided the councillors with enough information to enable them to make an informed decision on who was best placed to manage the lease”. The club, in Loders Rd, Moorooduc, was established in 1974. Mr Johnson said the work of volunteers in the 42 years since in improving the course and its facilities “with little or no coun-

cil assistance” was a compelling argument in its push to run the course. He thanked councillors who voted unanimously to give the club the lease. In particular he praised the efforts of Cr Kate Roper for her “unwavering support for the club and its volunteers throughout their campaign”. Mr Johnson said the club could now “plan for an exciting future with several proposals for improving the course in the pipeline”. “This course is in magnificent condition and is teeming with wildlife,” he

said. “It is an absolute pleasure to play in this great environment.” The not-for-profit club employs six full time and seven part time staff. An audited financial report supplied by the club for the year ending 30 June 2016 shows a net operating profit of $71,642 from an annual turnover of $1.36 million. In the 10 years to 2016 the club spent $760,000 on course improvements (not including of staff/volunteer labour); $41,900 on maintenance; and $594,000 to buy machinery.

Shops issue passport challenge OP SHOPS at Red Hill, Balnarring and Flinders have united for a fun event in the lead-up to Christmas – with a hamper of delicious local produce to go to a lucky winner. On Friday 15 and Saturday 16 December, the three op shops will open 10am-4pm for their Passport Challenge. Customers will receive a stamped “Passport” from the shopwhere they first buy an item. They can then have their passport stamped at the two other shops (without buying anything) to be put into the draw for the hamper. The winner will be notified on Monday 18 December. “This is the first time the three op shops have collaborated with each other and it is hoped that it won’t be the last,” Red Hill Op Shop president Felicity Jackson said. “The aim is to raise community awareness

about each shop and to create an interesting activity for avid op shoppers.” Flinders Op Shop supports St John’s Church; Balnarring supports St Mark’s; and Red Hill supports Peninsula Home Hospice and other local organisations. Opening hours: Balnarring Op Shop, 1 Balnarring Rd, 10am-2pm Tuesday, Wednesday and Friday and 10am-1pm Saturday. Flinders Op Shop, Cook St, 10am-2pm Monday, Tuesday (during holidays), Thursday and Saturday. Red Hill Op Shop, 33 Mechanics Rd, 10am4pm Wednesday, Friday, 10am-1pm (2pm market days) Saturday. Joining forces: Op shop staffers Lee Thorn, Gail lynch, Felicity Jackson and Kerri Egan with the wellstocked Christmas hamper. Picture: Gary Sissons

State Libs ‘save’ Holt memorial Keith Platt keith@mpnews.com.au THE state Liberal Party has stepped in to save plans for a memorial service to commemorate the 50th anniversary of the disappearance of Prime Minister Harold Holt. Mr Holt was last seen by friends on 17 December 1967 wading into the water off Cheviot Beach at Point Nepean near Portsea. Plans by the Harold Holt Memorial Committee, auspiced by the Nepean Ratepayers’ Association, for a memorial service on 17 December this year looked like being scrapped after little interest was shown by either federal,

state or local governments. However, the state Liberal Party president Michael Kroger this week has sent out invitations for a “special event” to “commemorate the life and service of the late Harold Holt”. At that time of Mr Holt’s disappearance access to the beach was restricted as it was within the Officer Cadet School, Portsea. The prime minister’s disappearance made headlines around the world, although today a cleared area above the beach contains just a small stone cairn with a plaque while another plaque has been bolted to the reef just offshore. The beach is now within the state government-controlled Point Nepean

National Park. Russell Joseph, electorate officer manager for Liberal Nepean MP Martin Dixon and also the party’s candidate for the seat at the next election, said there was a “strong local desire to create an upgraded memorial overlooking Cheviot beach, near to the current site”. “The Robin Boyd Foundation, with Parks Victoria and other stakeholders, will commence work on a design and approval process for this upgrade in the new year," he said. Mr Joseph said in October that “I’ll go myself with a mobile phone and make a speech” if no official memorial service was held (“No backers for

Holt anniversary service” The News 17/10/17). Shortly after Mr Holt’s death the late Robin Boyd sketched what he saw as a fitting memorial to his friend. The sketch proposed building two straight four metre high walls – concrete breakwaters – tapering towards each other across the beach into the sea with a 25 centimetre gap at their apex. The equilateral triangle formed by the walls and the beach was designed to create an enclosure of “safe, calm water”. “The calm water is symbolic of peace; the narrow head which the walls form is symbolic of Australia’s turning outwards, under Mr Holt’s leadership,

towards her neighbours,” a paper promoting an updated version of the memorial produced by the Robin Boyd Foundation states. The proposed memorial was presented to Governor-General Lord Casey and former Prime Minister Sir Robert Menzies who were both said to be enthusiastic, but was not supported by the Prime Minister John Gorton and did not proceed.” The Sunday 17 December now planned by the Liberal Party includes a memorial service at the former Fort Nepean Barracks site and a visit to Cheviot Beach followed by lunch at the former commanding officer's residence.

Drinking takes a dive at The Pillars PERMANENT bans on alcohol are among a range of tough rules designed to crack down on anti-social behaviour at youth hot-spot The Pillars. Mornington Peninsula Shire mayor Cr Bryan Payne said the bans at the popular rock jumping spot and surrounding streets have been introduced in time for the warmer months and the holiday season. “These bans will help prevent the types of illegal behaviour that have become widespread at The Pillars through reducing alcohol-related incidents, improve public safety and amenity and protect the environment and overall community interest,” he said. “Council continues to work hard to protect the safety of people and the amenity of our local residents.” The permanent alcohol ban follows a six-month

trial from November 2016 to April 2017 after which the council increased powers for police to seize alcohol and fine drinkers. It comes alongside traffic counts in Deakin Drive, Marguerita Av, the Esplanade service road (off Marguerita), Two Bays Crescent and Lempriere Av, as well as an investigation into the installation of pedestrian counters at three main entry points at The Pillars. Other new measures include counts of parked vehicles in surrounding streets; patrols and enforcement of parking infringements; weekly hand litter collections in Marguerita and Deakin avenues; rubbish collection in response to complaints logged with the shire and rapid response to collect litter from residents that collect litter onsite at The Pillars. Solar powered 40km signs will also be reinstalled.

Speak out on party houses MORNINGTON Peninsula residents can have their say on the proposed party house draft local law by Friday. The Short Stay Rental Accommodation Local Law (Draft) will be on public display until 5pm, Friday 7 December. Mornington Peninsula Shire Council has framed the local law to curb potential impacts of anti-social behaviour by the occupants of ‘party houses’ across the peninsula. The shire says the proposed local law is the first of its kind in the state. It aims to create a registration system that identifies the owner of a property and requires he or she to nominate an

appointed agent who must respond immediately to neighbour complaints. It also establishes a code of conduct controlling the numbers of occupants, expectations for their behaviour, and rules over car parking and rubbish disposal. If the draft law is adopted penalties will apply for breaches. The Local Law will be used in conjunction with the Environment Protection Act 1970, Public Health and Wellbeing Act 2008 and the Planning and Environment Act 1987. View the draft law online and have your say at: mornpen.vic.gov.au/haveyoursay.

Man dies in crash at Main Ridge MORNINGTON-FLINDERS Rd near Baldrys Rd, Main Ridge, was closed off Monday morning 4 December after a car was found crashed into a large gum tree. The 22-year-old driver, of Frankston, was dead at the scene. Leading senior constable Greg

Wolfe, of Mornington Peninsula highway patrol, said a passing motorist discovered the badly damaged Hyundai Getz at 6am. The car had been travelling north in a 100kph zone. Police later cordoned off the area. A report will be prepared for the coroner.

Schoolies light up the night Stephen Taylor steve@mpnews.com.au WAYWARD schoolies may have let the heat go to their heads during rowdy gatherings on the foreshore near Rye pier on several nights last week. Sergeant Dean Matthews, of Rosebud police, said “three or four” young men had been arrested for lighting flares, minor assaults, assaulting police, resisting arrest and bringing alcohol to the foreshore. He said they may be summonsed to appear at Dromana Magistrates’ Court at a later date. Sergeant Matthews said the rowdy behaviour of between 600 and 1000 youngsters prompted police to call for back-up from Frankston and Mornington. In one instance youths were capsicum sprayed when they “crowded in” on police in a show of defiance. Those who refused to drop their flares were arrested and those who would not back away were sprayed, resulting in “half a dozen” youngsters being asked to produce their IDs and copping $634 on-the-spot disorderly conduct tickets. A 22-year-old burned his hand when lighting a flare at Rye, 12.30am, Wednesday 29 November. He was among up to 1000 revellers – many of them drunk – gathered on the foreshore to party. Three flares were set off and the Clayton man received superficial burns. He was treated by ambulance officers at the scene. Sergeant Matthews said he was “a

little bit disappointed, especially with the older kids flouting local laws, such as lighting flares, drinking alcohol on the foreshore and causing street damage”. “I am happy to have the schoolies here, but some of them get extra rowdy when alcohol is involved and they are making it dangerous for the younger kids who are trying to enjoy them-

selves,” he said. Police were hoping forecast heavy rains over the weekend would calm down the revelry and, ironically, to “put a dampener on things”, Sergeant Matthews said.

Cost blowout on pool repair THE BILL for fixing underground pipes to reopen the main swimming pools at the Peninsula Aquatic and Recreation Centre in time for the busy summer months could creep close to the $1 million mark. The PARC’s main 50-metre pool, aquatic playground and a learn-to-swim pool have been closed to swimmers since a plumbing fault on 12 October. Rust has infested pipe brackets and pipes three years after the $49.7 million leisure centre first opened its doors. Leisure centre management initially hoped to have the PARC pools open again by the end of October but “mid-December” is now a possibility according to Peninsula Leisure, the Frankston Council-owned company that manages the centre. “Currently we are still on track to reopen the PARC 50 metres and learn to swim pools by midDecember, with contractors working seven days a week to resolve the infrastructure malfunction, Peninsula Leisure CEO Tim Gledhill said last week. “Our members and the broader community will be advised immediately, once a reopen date is confirmed.” Pools were drained so plumbing contractors can access the defective pipes. Frankston councillors discussed the PARC pools closure and any rectification works behind closed doors since it related to legal advice after

council’s public council meeting on Monday 20 November. It is understood that about $17,000 a day is leaking from council’s balance sheet in lost income each day the PARC swimming pools remain closed to the public. Centre members have not been charged membership fees while the pools remain closed. Other PARC activities such as the gym and wellness centre are still open to visitors and members. The wash up over who pays for the near $1 million rectification works to fix the underground pool pipes may involve talks between council, the centre builders and insurers.

Hospital plans AN AMBITIOUS vision of the future of health and education in the Frankston region has been unveiled under a plan to base a health and education hub at a rebuilt Frankston Hospital in partnership with Monash University. Peninsula Health announced at its annual general meeting last Wednesday (29 November) plans for a $250 million rebuild of Frankston Hospital to include 115 more beds by mid-2021 and a $15 million clinical research and education centre at the new hospital. Monash University will commit up to $50 million to the hospital rebuild in a partnership estimated to bring 1000 jobs to Frankston during construction of the new buildings and 500 fulltime health, research and education jobs after completion. Any research centre will focus on ageing and chronic diseases and action to stop family violence and addiction.

Shire climate ‘team’ back from overseas A “TEAM” from Mornington Peninsula Shire has returned from overseas with “invaluable information” to help the shire “address and respond to climate change”. Cr Simon Brooks, CEO Carl Cowie and project delivery manager Derek Rotter attended a conference in Germany, while Mr Cowie also went to Sweden and Malta. The latest overseas by council representatives comes as the shire moves towards meeting its target of being carbon neutral by 2021. Cr Brooks and Mr Rotter went first to a conference in Essen, Germany and then were joined by Mr Cowie for a United Nations conference in Bonn. “Our team learned invaluable information, having collaborative discussions and connecting with experts to enhance the shire’s ability to address and respond to climate change,” Cr Brooks stated in a news release last week. He said the trip was “invaluable - giving first hand, international insight and examples into a global issue that impacts us at a local level”. The mayor, Cr Bryan Payne said feedback had shown that “the most loved thing about living on the peninsula is the environment”. “The central role that local and regional governments play in climate change mitigation, resilience and adaption is being recognised internationally,” he said. “It is important the shire gains full understanding about climate change to ensure we are providing the best outcomes locally for our community.” However, Cr Brooks’ trip was not made without obstacles. In October, a majority of his colleagues voted against the shire paying for his trip. Cr Brooks said his attendance at the conferences was important and he would pay his own way. The shire covered the costs of Mr Rotter (about $800) and Mr Cowie, whose contract includes a $30,000 study allowance. While in Germany Cr Brooks and Mr Rotter

attended the Twins Conference in Essen discussing Cities in Climate Change, also attended by experts in environment, climate protection and urban and landscape planning. The shire’s news release said the pair “heard from Saskia Beer from the Netherlands who is working on a global, digitally-enabled platform to bring government, community and businesses together as equal participants in the development and use of run-down industrial and commercial districts”. “A stand-out visit was to the Fraunhofer Institute, an applied science research organisation developing a new type of “flow battery” and technology to convert straw and grass stubble into oil. It is also an incubator for start-ups, helping them to commercialise their work,” Cr Brooks stated. Cr Brooks, Mr Cowie and Mr Rotter then went to Bonn for UN Framework Convention on Climate Change conference. “This event looked at key initiatives and partnerships that support the implementation of the Paris Agreement, demonstrating that when cities, regions, businesses, communities and all levels of government join forces, it makes climate action stronger and more effective,” the shire’s news release stated. “Cr Brooks also participated in the Climate Summit of Local and Regional Leaders, hearing from many local government organisations, mayor’s and councillors.” A “stand-out” had been hearing from Scottish MP Roseanna Cunningham about her country’s target of reducing greenhouse emissions by 41 per cent by 2020 “largely due to a program of wind farms that has achieved their target five years early”. “This shift has directly created 6000 new jobs in the low carbon/renewables sector.” For details about the UN Climate Change Conference visit cop23.unfccc.int and the shire’s efforts mornpen.vic.gov.au/climatechange Keith Platt

Talking about human rights WILLUM Warrain Aboriginal Association president Peter Aldenhoven will present this year’s Mornington Peninsula Human Rights Oration in Mornington. He will outline contemporary connections to the history of the Boon Wurrung/Bunurong peoples of the peninsula region, the politics of identity and the importance of recognising Australia’s First Peoples through a treaty.

Ketterer, Jaq Grantford, Debbie Sayers, Fiona Philip, Kate Olsen, Lori Windle and Jennifer Croom. The Breast Intentions Support Group was formed in 2004 and meets on the first Wednesday of each month, 7-9pm, at The Bays Hospital. Details: Call 0429 929 071 or email bimpwcsg@gmail.com.

Tracking pets RSPCA Victoria wants owners of puppies and kittens to know where their pet was bred. The association’s CEO Dr Liz Walker was “delighted” to see the state government put traceability “front and centre” in the Domestic Animals Act requiring source numbers to be stored on a publicly searchable Pet Exchange Register. “Right now, we can’t account for where up to 70 per cent of the puppies born in Victoria every year have been bred - that’s around 60,000 puppies a year,” Dr Walker said. “If we don’t know where a kitten or pup was bred, we can’t possibly know what conditions they or their mum have been living in – it might be perfect, or it could be horrifically cruel.” Dr Walker said that the source numbers would be required on all advertisements offering kittens and puppies for sale in Victoria, including those being traded or given away. From 2019 potential pet owners will be able to use a Pet Exchange Register website to check whether the source number is valid, and that the breeder’s contact details and location line up with those on the advertisement. “From 2019, it’ll be no source number, no sale. It’s that simple,” Dr Walker said.

Dead whale remains Stephen Taylor steve@mpnews.com.au A DEAD whale found washed up at the base of the Jubilee Point cliffs at Sorrento back beach Monday 27 November will be left to rot. The Department of Environment, Land, Water and Planning and Parks Victoria decided last week “after assessing all the options” to leave the Bryde’s whale where it was. “Moving a whale is a complex task and many options were discussed, including moving the whale offsite to either bury on a beach or in landfill, cutting up the carcass and even exploding [it],” DELWP spokesperson, Dan White said. “None of these were safe options as they pose unacceptable risks to the community, environ-

ment and staff.” Diamond Bay beach has been closed to swimmers and a 300 metre exclusion zone has been set up around Jubilee Point. Mr White said whale remains were protected by law and must not be interfered with. Pathogens from the whale carcass could be harmful to people and there is an increased risk of sharks feeding near the beach. “We have decided the only viable option, at this stage, is to leave the whale where it is and allow it to naturally decay,” Mr White said. “The sheltered nature of where the whale is means the decay process will take some time – potentially many weeks. We will continue to explore options to assist in the decomposition process. Entangled whales can be reported to the whale and dolphin emergency hotline 1300 136 017.

With Stephen Taylor

Charges may follow car’s cliff plunge A WOMAN in her 20s was lucky to escape death and serious injury when her car ran off the Esplanade near Burdoo Way, Mt Martha, 1.55am, Monday 27 November, may face charges. The p-plater was driving home – and possibly talking to her boyfriend on the phone – when her car left the road and careered 20 metres into thick scrub and overturned (right). The woman’s boyfriend heard her calls for help during their alleged conversation and called emergency services. The woman, a chef at a Mornington restaurant, suffered neck and back pain and was taken to The Alfred hospital by road ambulance. Her car was extensively damage and, because of wet conditions, was not towed out until mid-morning. Senior Sergeant Neil Orbit, of Mornington police, said police would assess whether “it is in the public interest to put a person before the court” who was allegedly talking on the phone while driving. She will also possibly face a charge of driving with a blood alcohol content of over 0.05 per cent. About 10am on Sunday (26 November) a car ran off the Esplanade, ploughing through three timber bollards before coming to rest against a no-standing sign near Deakin Drive. Police were called to direct traffic while the car was retrieved by a tow truck. A witness said the bollards probably prevented the car from rolling over the cliff.

Early morning supermarket and bakery workers heard the noise and ran out to see the offenders running into the car park. The Dog Squad was called in but the men had gone.

Con artists

Assault charges A WOMAN was allegedly punched to the back of her head by another woman in Robinsons Drive, Mornington, about midday, Monday 27 November. She received facial injuries when she fell to ground in the alleged attack on the corner of Jacana St. The woman was taken to The Alfred hospital for treatment and was said to be in a stable condition with severe bruising, Thursday. Her alleged attacker walked away after the incident.

TRAVELLING tradesmen offering discounted prices for work on the Mornington Peninsula over summer should be avoided, local police warn. Detective Acting Senior Sergeant Stephen McKenzie, of Mornington Peninsula CIU, said con artists offering cheap painting, roof repairs, driveway repairs and other similar work should be avoided. “These are people doing substandard work and charging considerably more than the value of the work being quoted,” he said. “Unfortunately, they are known to prey on the elderly and vulnerable, and can be very assertive, offering one-off sale prices or heavily discounted prices due to job cancellations or other reasons. “Historically, these people target our areas and there have been some reports of this already occurring. Unless you are absolutely certain that you are dealing with qualified and reputable tradespeople/companies, our advice is to be careful.” Detective McKenzie said anyone approached in these circumstances should “kindly refuse the work”. “If these people are persistent, do not engage with them but instead call 000, Crime Stoppers 1800 333 000 or Consumer Affairs Victoria 1300 558 181,” he said.

A 49-year-old Mornington woman has been charged with assault and will appear at Frankston Magistrates’ Court, 20 February.

Raid on ATM A FOUR-WHEEL-DRIVE was driven into a shopping plaza in Mt Eliza Way in an attempt to steal an ATM, 4.40am, Monday 27 November. The stolen Nissan was backed at speed into the facade of the Bank of Melbourne, knocking out the ATM and coming to rest on top of it.

Therapeutic power of music gives relief to patients PATIENTS with Parkinson’s disease and other chronic illnesses are benefiting greatly from the St John of God Frankston Rehabilitation Hospital’s Music for Wellness program. The program began in 2016 following a pilot project conducted in collaboration with the University of Western Australia and Musica Viva, which presented overwhelming results showing happiness in patients post engagement in music. Singing and song writing workshops with Musician in Residence, Colleen Rees, are now conducted weekly as a way to holistically improve patient care. “The program provides a social environment for participants to interact with other people who are going through similar experiences, and to share a positive, stimulating activity together,” Colleen said. “Some of the people are really struggling in their personal life and with accepting where they are, but music has a way of letting people relax, it unites people and triggers memories that instil a feeling of happiness.” “It’s been an absolute joy to watch the confidence build in participants and witness friendships develop within the group.” Speech Pathologist Senior Clinician and Music for Wellness Coordinator Jenny Shurdington said the program could improve physical, communication, and emotional skills

of individuals living with Parkinson’s disease, as well as those with respiratory issues, chronic pain and other debilitating illnesses. “Consistent interaction within the close-knit community of the program helps to combat social isolation and depression while empowering participants with a sense of possibility and achievement,” Jenny said. “Participating in the program helps boost confidence levels, transforms attitudes about living with a chronic illness, and helps manage some of the symptoms associated with their condition.” “Patients often come in feeling down or a little flat, but after participating in music and singing with their friends they leave feeling uplifted, happy and engaged.” Parkinson’s patient Nola Delaney was recommended to try the program by her neurologist and has loved attending the weekly sessions. “What I like about Music for Wellness is the happiness of it all. Everybody’s happy and enjoying it, it makes you feel good,” Nola said. “I have met some great people who share the same complaints as me, so I don’t feel so isolated, and made some good friends who I now catch up with outside of the program.” “It has given me a lot more confidence to mix with people, whereas I was hesitant before and worried about what people would think.”

“I love this program because of the confidence it has given me and the enjoyment I’m still getting out of life. Even though things might be bad, there’s always good on the other side, the music helps with it all.” Referrals: Outpatient referrals can be sent to: St John of God Frankston Rehabilitation Hospital 255-265 Cranbourne Road, Frankston 3199.

Rate your hearing at Nepean Hearing 4 Million Australians have a hearing loss NEPEAN Hearing is offering free hearing tests and rating your Hearing for Your Age (for the over 40’s). The number of Australians who are hearing impaired is increasing because of • the Ageing Population –we are living longer • excessive Noise - in the workplace and high level music Hearing loss is often described as the ‘invisible disability’. People often wait for 5-10 years before they seek help. Hearing loss may also be a contributing factor in the speed of onset of dementia. The degree of loss is also correlated to the risk of Alzheimer’s disease. It is important to know about your hearing. Many people ignore the signs of hearing loss, which include turning the TV or stereo up so loud that others complain, frequently needing to ask others to repeat themselves and not being able to hear properly on the telephone. Constant ringing is also another warning sign of hearing loss. As technology advances, many people with hearing loss benefit from hearing aids. These innovations have made a positive difference in the way they can communicate and enjoy their lives. Nepean Hearing is an independently owned clinic and the audiologists are University of Melbourne trained.

Reward for skink sleuths SEVERAL elusive swamp skinks have been rediscovered in parks on the Mornington Peninsula. A small team of scientists and field naturalists from La Trobe University rediscovered the skinks (Lissolepis coventryi) which have not been caught in the area for 30 years. The last anecdotal sighting was in 2012. So far, 13 of these “mini Godzillas” have been measured and weighed after being caught in Elliott traps – which allow for live capture – and under tiles. “Self-confessed reptile fanatics find swamp skinks appealing due to their fussy and secretive habits. They live in swampy areas and shelter in burrows. They display highly territorial behaviour and can be aggressive to unwanted visitors,” team leader David De Angelis, said. The skinks are black and gold and have a blue mouth lining. The scientists were creative in their efforts to observe the skinks: they installed low fences to create travel lines leading to surveillance cameras and baited their traps with honey, rolled oats, peanut butter and sardines. Scientists also checked beneath hundreds of concrete roofing tiles left in the swampy areas the skinks prefer. Continuing habitat loss is the biggest threat to this rare skink which is listed as threatened under the Flora and Fauna Guarantee Act. Its survival is also affected by weed invasion, inappropriate fire regimes and introduced predators, such as foxes and cats. “This collaborative project between Parks Victoria and the Field Naturalists Club of Victoria is a rare opportunity for members of the public to assist with monitoring this state-significant species,” Mr De Angelis said. “It is contributing to our knowledge of the swamp skink’s distribution on the peninsula and research into the most effective ways of surveying for it.”

Shire pushes for bag ban

MORNINGTON Peninsula Shire is urging the state government to “continue to lead the way in banning single-use plastic bags and containers in Victoria”. It has written to the Premier Daniel Andrews and energy, environment and climate change minister Lily D’Ambrosio to say it “continues to strongly support the proposed amendments to the Environment Protection Act to ban the sale of single use plastic bags”. The shire says protecting the environment and marine life is an “important initiative for Mornington Peninsula Shire”. “The ecological and environmental impact caused by the increased use of plastic bags creates a significant threat to Port Phillip Bay and the Mornington Peninsula,” the letter said. “Plastic bags can take 20-100 years to break down and are often mistaken for food by marine animals.” The shire joined with the Association of Bayside Municipality and member councils to endorse the push to ban plastic bags. New mayor Cr Bryan Payne said communities have “voiced their concern regarding single use plastic bags and advocated for the shire to act”. “While the shire supports initiatives through education programs and policies, we believe it is essential that efforts … are also supported by state government legislation and policy. “We encourage the state to continue to work towards a ban on single-use plastic bags.”

FAMILY VIOLENCE HAS NO GOOD DAYS. Family Violence stems from men who think they are better than women. Men who exercise control, and misuse power. And they might think it’s only their wife or partner they’re harming, and that their children are fine. But they’re not. In fact the violence their children are witnessing or hearing is just as damaging to them, their futures and their future relationships.

Market gets ready for its 40th celebration BONEO community market is gearing for its 40th birthday on Saturday 16 December with a visit from Santa, live music and an after-market gathering of past committee, volunteers and stall holders. The first market was held on 17 December 1977 and then every third Saturday of the month, 8am-12.30pm. It had 63 stalls when it began and around 200 stalls today but the ethos of “make it, bake it, grow it” has stayed the same. It is run by volunteers from Boneo Primary School, cricket club and tennis club, with about 20 people per market making it happen. Starting as the second community market in Victoria, Boneo market, on the corner of Boneo and Limestone roads, is now the oldest. How times have changed: “The market was originally set up around the oval with parking on the oval, but with the growth of the market, the stalls were moved onto the oval and parking around the oval in 1990,” treasurer Ross Arnott said. “When the Boneo hall burned down a third of the funds for the new hall were raised by the market. “Other funds have assisted in the building of new rooms for the cricket club built without any shire funds and a lot of volunteer labour. Other funds went to building tennis courts and lights and cricket practice nets.”

Mr Arnott said the market bought a bus for Boneo Primary School as well as a new playground. “Our most recent contribution has been to the building of a playground on the reserve,” he said. “We have a large number of local fruit and vegetable growers at the market with Delgrosso apples being our longest continuous stall holder.” Boneo CFA members raise funds through tin shaking and making tea and scones at every second market. “Rain, hail or shine customers and stall holders turn up, with 2000-5000 people attending depending on time of year and weather,” Mr Arnott said.

Going orange THE McCrae lighthouse will glow orange again this year to mark the third anniversary of the state government’s Victoria Against Violence campaign. It is part of the 16 Days of Activism which began on the International Day for the Elimination of Violence against Women, Saturday 25 November and ends on International Human Rights Day, Sunday 10 December. The idea is to focus community attention onto the devastating impact caused by family violence. Organiser Jeanette Lane is seeking public support for the campaign by backing the themes: #putyourhandup #goorange and #freefromviolence

Rescues in their blood: Southern Peninsula Rescue Squad members Bernard Goss, Gavin Keegan, Kate Maren, John Sonneveld, Andrew Keegan, Sandra Hyde, Greg Goss, Yvonne Morrison, Geoffrey May and Rob Newland. Picture: Supplied

Fifty years answering calls for help ABOUT 80 guests enjoyed a photographic display and a chance to reminisce about the early days of the Southern Peninsula Rescue Squad at a 50th anniversary function at the Blairgowrie Yacht Squadron last week. President Eileen Murray said the squad bought its first helicopter in 1976 – the first of four over the next 34 years. “The helicopter service was unique in Australia as being the only one owned and operated by a volunteer organisation without regular government funding,” she said. “The helicopter was sold in 2010 but the squad continues with its rescue

boat operation.” Several boats were bought over the years. In December 2011 the first of the squad’s current rescue boats came into service as well as a second, smaller version, in July 2014. “After 43 years at Sorrento, the squad moved to its current premises at the Blairgowrie Yacht Squadron in December 2012,” Ms Murray said. “Five years on, both rescue boats occupy permanent berths at the marina allowing a quick response in emergencies. “From humble beginnings, using borrowed boats, vehicles and equip-

ment, the Southern Peninsula Rescue Squad continues to provide a professional, well respected search and rescue service to the local community.” This year also marks the 20th anniversary of the Search and Rescue Op Shop at Blairgowrie. Over this period the shop has raised $785,821 to support the rescue squad. It has now moved to new premises at Nelson St, Rye. In recognition of the work carried out by volunteers over that time op shop coordinator Margo Ashton was presented with a photo of the rescue boats to be displayed at the new shop.

Call for ‘model’ study to make a point Keith Platt keith@mpnews.com.au BEACH box owners and users of Mt Martha Beach North want the state government to pay about $30,000 for a “modelling” of a plan to save the eroded beach. A public meeting at Mt Martha Lifesaving Club (Saturday 25 November) called on the government to more fully investigate building a 25 metre long groyne designed to bring sand back to the beach and protect the crumbling cliffs. Land and built environment program manager for the Department of Environment, Land, Water and Planning, Cass Philippou, said on Friday the proposal “is currently being considered”. “Construction of a rock revetment to stabilise the cliff at Mt Martha North beach is a high priority for DELWP,” Ms Philippou said. A study by consultants Water Technology estimates the groyne – either made from rocks or “geotextile” bags will cost $330,000, including initially importing sand to renew the beach. The beach users are facing a summer where the beach remains closed for safety reasons. Meanwhile, the owners of beach boxes ordered demolished by Mornington Peninsula Shire cannot comply because of the closure. Alan Farquhar, chairman of the Mt Martha North Beach Group, said 12,500 cubic metres of sand trucked onto the beach (mainly from the beach at Mt Martha south) in 2010 had lasted three years “when they told us it would be there for eight or 10 years”. Without any other physical changes “the sand has no chance of being re-

Point problem: Beach users at Mt Martha North beach say a 25 metre long groyne built out from a rocky point could help retain sand, left. Consultants agree, but say the groyne could also cause sand loss at Hawker beach. Meanwhile, the Department of Environment, Land, Water and Planning wants to extend the existing rock wall, above. Pictures: Keith Platt

tained”. Mr Farquhar says a rocky point at the northern end of the beach once formed a “natural groyne” but had “gradually worn away”. He said building a 25 metre long groyne would replace the point, hopefully causing a build-up of sand which, in turn, would protect the base of the cliffs. What changes could be expected from rocks being installed at the base

of the seawall at Hawker beach “is not generally known, but is likely to be beneficial”, Mr Farquhar said. “But the problem is not to be solved without further human intervention.” Mr Farquhar said there was “no market” for the beach boxes, which could not be accessed by their owners. The Water Technology study into erosion at Mt Martha Beach North was commissioned on the back of two severe storms in winter 2016.

A major finding is that that the crumbling cliffs threaten the stability of the Esplanade. Options for stopping the erosion and renewing the beach outlined in the report cost up to $4 million, with the 25 metre groyne being among the cheapest. However, the consultants’ say “a key issue” of the groyne is that it will cause sand to be lost from Hawker beach. The consultants say a “soft option”

would be to construct the groyne from geotextile bags which could be easily removed it more erosion was caused. The report recommends removing all the beach boxes unless action is taken to stop further erosion of the cliff and beach. The options include building rock walls and groynes across the beach or an offshore breakwater to slow the loss of thousands of cubic metres of sand needed to “renourish” the beach.

Greenhouse gases lead to ‘catastrophe’ Jenny Warfe (“Talk about tourism,” Letters 31/10/17) is quite correct quoting Newton’s Third Law “for every action there is an equal and opposite reaction”. I am of the educated opinion that planet Earth is already “unloading the overload”. Look at the unprecedented regularity and ferocity of this year’s hurricanes in the Caribbean. They are formed over a large expanse of water that has reached a consistent temperature of 24 degrees Celsius or greater. The Caribbean’s coral reefs are bleaching, as are the reefs of the Great Barrier Reef north of Mackay. Coral bleaching happens when water temperature (in Australia) reaches a consistent 37 degrees Celsius, at which time the normally symbiotic relationship between the polyps and the algae contained within the polyps becomes toxic, so the polyps eject the algae (which supplies 90 per cent of the polyps’ nutritional needs, so without the algae, the polyps eventually starve to death). The world’s coral reefs contain at least 705 of all species of marine life and are vital to the health and productivity of tropical seas. I saw coral bleaching off Cape Tribulation 16 years ago. On Heron Island marine biologists are performing experiments on living coral, subjecting them to various temperatures, and acidity (using CO2) Why would they be doing this if it was of no concern? The burning of fossil fuels reduces air quality, produces carcinogens and causes climate change, but also causes ocean acidification. As sea temperatures rise, the water expands, causing sea level rise. Sceptics don’t seem to understand there will be catastrophic consequences if humans continue to pump greenhouse gases into the atmosphere.

The Earth’s warming has not flat lined, it has accelerated faster than scientists predicted and there is more CO2 in the atmosphere than before the industrial revolution. Ian Bollard, Hastings

Groyne to save beach The community engagement session at Mt Martha Lifesaving Club Saturday 25 November was well attended and finished on a positive note with the following motion carried unanimously: “That the [Department of Environment, Land, Water and Planning] seek funding to model and cost the groyne solution to maintain minimum sand on Mt Martha North Beach, as soon as possible.” Over the years our beach has been on the receiving end of much survey and analysis and the latest coastal processes study (by Water Technology on behalf of the department), adds yet more to the store of knowledge, shedding some more light on the reasons for its current state and options to address them. However, despite all this past and current attention there has been no action taken to date to address the beach’s continuing decline to provide it with any degree of permanency. This study provides yet again the justification for action and means of addressing the beach’s shortcomings. In football parlance, we have had a lot of the ball but it doesn’t show on the scoreboard. We desperately need funding not only to stabilise the cliff but to retain sand on the beach without action being taken to curb our sand loss we won’t have a beach. We firmly believe that the most effective management option for our beach is a short groyne in combination with sand renourishment. Alan Farquhar, chairman, Mt Martha North Beach Group

Tourism’s ‘hordes’ It looks like I’m right again (“Tourism needs a balance- study” The News 28/11/17). For very many years I’ve been saying that tourists take over in summer, denying us residents our own amenities and bringing congestion, chaos, crime and costs, with “benefits” that are worthless to us. Perhaps some councillors from Paris or China could do a study tour here to observe how a council could be so inept and irresponsible as to allow a huge and expanding residential area with lots of young families, and oldies, who need amenities, to be overrun by hordes of tourists (eight million a year) ruining their towns. Think of the carbon emissions. Meantime, I for one will continue to shop elsewhere - summer and winter. Brian A Mitchelson, Mornington

Detention attention This past week Australians were aghast at the treatment of the refugee men on Manus Island. On Saturday 25 November the Southern Peninsula Grandmothers against the Detention of Refugee Children held a one-hour demonstration in Hastings. Sixteen people signed a petition which we have sent to [Immigration Minister Peter] Dutton. Various attitudes were expressed, but numerous people we spoke with expressed their concern about the treatment of refugees in offshore detention, particularly Manus. Members of the Australian public are now very concerned about the situation of refugees in offshore detention. Talking to others, writing or phoning federal politicians and [Flinders MP] Greg Hunt are all positive actions to show our concern. Silence is acquiescence to the horrific situations our government has created and is responsible for. Our protests also include those refugees on Nauru –men, women children - who continue to live without freedom, safety or hope. Information is hard to get due to tight controls, but there are some reports which reflect a similar abusive environment we have seen on Manus. The physical and mental cost to those in detention long term is immeasurable, and has been well docu-

mented. The Australian government continues to financially support offshore detention centres at great cost, using our taxes, and refuses to take responsibility. Offers from New Zealand to resettle some refugees have been refused by the government and the US has been very slow to take the total number of refugees it promised over a year ago to resettle. Australians have a right to know when and how this government is planning to end offshore detention and respond to the immediate needs of those in detention on Manus Island. Ann Renkin, Shoreham

Comment and confession Don Burke, front page of a daily newspaper, “I’m not a nice man”? I rated gardening shows alongside cooking shows so not a fan. Still, having watched the ABC’s witch hunt of Donald (and The Age) I’m yet to be convinced as to exactly what he did physically wrong some 20 or more years back before political correctness, other than obviously lewd sexual comments and a tendency (seemingly) to be oversexed and (perhaps) a serial harasser? Not that I ever trusted him, which is immaterial, as I often distrust television personalities (and some actors) by instinct. Degrees of nonsense? As a public servant at the auditor-general’s office, I recall one young lady accusing me of a lewd comment. I probably said something like “I love your short skirt”. She reported me and six months later I discovered she was having an affair with one of the married bosses. Which one? Correct: the one she reported me to. Another time (Department of Navy) a sissy looking boss reported me for “answering the counter in a suggestive manner”? (I had no power, so suitably remorseful). With journalist Tracey Spicer on the job and the Media Entertainments and Arts Alliance I’m thinking it will not only be Don Burke shaking in his underpants. Five hundred women involving 65 men? Still, it took Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull off the front page, a minor blessing. Cliff Ellen, Rye

100 YEARS AGO THIS WEEK...

PM supports ‘yes’ vote in plebiscite Compiled by Brodie Cowburn SERGEANT Tracy and A. W. Glencross, Esq will address a public meeting at Somerville on Monday evening next to explain the truth in the matter of the Reinforcements Referendum. *** YOUR RESPONSIBILITY PRIME MINISTER’S MESSAGE. To the Electors of FLINDERS. Are you for Australia or against her? Will you stand with those who are resolved that, come what may, we will not desert our boys at the Front? Or will you stand with the real leaders of the campaign against the Government’s proposals to send reinforcements to the boys at the Front? The Government has put before you a proposal, moderate and equitable, seeking a clearly defined power which it pledges itself not to exceed. That proposal will ensure the Australians at the front the reinforcements and the rest which they so badly need. Nothing else will. If you turn down the Government’s proposal, you not only prove yourself unworthy of freedom, but literally condemn to death the men who are fighting for YOU. That is the responsibility which rests upon you. You cannot shirk it. On December 20th you must vote “YES”. W. M. HUGHES, Prime Minister. *** AN ANTI-CONSCRIPTION openair meeting held at Frankston on Thursday night was well attended. Mr C.Gray, secretary of the Trades

Hall Council, was chairman. It had been announced that Lieut Colonel Crouch and Mr J. F McGowan would speak, but, amid a storm of hoots and catcalls Mr Gray said that Lieut-Colonel Crouch had been delayed on the road. Mr McGowan then took the platform, but it was evident that the audience, disappointed about the absence of the “star” speaker, were in no mood to listen to him. Amid a chorus of interjectors, he argued that the volunteer movement had failed because, amongst other things the soldiers were not getting sufficient pay. A returned soldier—We are not fighting for 6s a day, or for 4s 3d a day; we are fighting for honor. (Cheers) We’re satisfied with what we’re getting, and we don’t want any assistance from you to get more. Mrs Martin then took the platform. She said that her husband was at the front A Soldier, - Why don’t you send men to help him? Mrs Martin. - She did not want her husband to come back to an Australia which would be filled with Chinamen and black men. (Voices - “Rot”) Another Soldier—You ought to be ashamed of yourself talking about black men. Why there are black men fighting beside your husband now. (Cheers.) *** ON Sunday afternoon, the 16th, the Catholic School and Hall at Hastings, will be opened by Archbishop Mannix, at 3 o’clock.

Old Boys the big winners PROVINCIAL

By IT Gully PENINSULA Old Boys were the big winners in Mornington Peninsula Provincial cricket on Saturday, the only team to get a result. On a day that was dominated by soggy grounds and rain, all Provincial, Peninsula, District and Sub-District First XI matches ended in draws, except for the Old Boys, who got the job

done against Pearcedale. Defending 8/260, the Old Boys rolled Pearcedale for just 121 in 47 overs. Jon Forrest was the key to the victory for the Old Boys, bowling 15 overs and four maidens for a return of 7/22. Tom Shayler was impressive again also with 3/20 from 12 overs. Brad Trotter started like a house on fire with the bat for the Dales, scoring 17 of the team’s first 18 runs, before

becoming Shayler’s first victim. Chris Dew opened and top scored with 45, while Jarryd Herbert was the only other Dale to get to double figures with 26. All other Provincial matches ended in a draw. Langwarrin would have been extremely thankful, given they were just two wickets away from defeat against Mt Eliza. Chasing 207, the Kangas were on

their knees at 8/107 when rain took hold. Nick Baron was the key for the Mounties with 4/47 from 28 overs and Rob Maskiel claimed 2/22. There were two run-outs. Baxter was in the best position it has been all season but luck just isn’t on their side. Defending 6/341 after Chris Brittain (104), Justin Bridgeman (84), Daniel Warwick (49), Dale Irving (42) and Joe

Rule (40) all got amongst the runs on day one, Baxter had Crib Point 4/102 when the game was called off. Henry Dolphin was the thorn in Baxter’s side, unbeaten on 49. Mornington had Sorrento reeling at 3/30 before the rain came at David McFarlan Reserve. The Doggies were defending 206. At one stage the Sorras were 3/11. Michael Heib grabbed all three wickets, finishing with 3/12. Sorrento faced just 21 overs.

Jump to it: Langwarrin snatched a draw from the jaws of defeat against Mt Eliza in their Provincial match when rain stopped play. Picture: Andrew Hurst

Rain kills Main game PENINSULA

By IT Gully IT was easy to feel sorry for Main Ridge, who required just six runs for victory against Somerville on day two of Peninsula cricket. All that was needed was one or two overs to try and grab the required runs but they never took to the field. The Ridge bowled out Somerville last week for 172, then proceeded to hammer the Eagles’ attack and finish the opening day at 0/167, five runs short. It was guaranteed a win if the rain held off. It didn’t and the Ridge fell short, Somerville ending up the big winners of the round, escaping with a draw.

Pines had every reason to feel robbed too. Defending 6/259, the Piners had Flinders reeling at 5/42 before the rain washed out the rest of the day’s play. Pines coach Adrian Mack used five bowlers in just 36 overs to try and get the breakthroughs. Pat Jackson claimed 3/9 from 12 overs while Mack and Alex Coad grabbed a wicket each. Neil Barfus saved the Sharks with an unbeaten 19. Moorooduc was travelling OK against Delacombe Park when play ended. Chasing 325 for victory, the Ducs were 4/136 when stumps were called. Ben Williams scored 67 and Madushanka Perera 58 for the Ducs, while Ricky Ramsdale claimed three of the four wickets for the Parkers.

Seaford falls just short DISTRICT

By IT Gully THERE was some cricket played in District and it was Seaford that were the big losers against Heatherhill. Seaford resumed at 0/12 chasing Heatherhill’s first innings total of 190. After getting through 64 overs in challenging conditions, Seaford finished agonisingly close at 7/186, just five runs short of victory. Mt Martha was in all sorts of

trouble against Baden Powell. Defending 264, the Braves had Mt Martha in strife at 5/97. Once again, rain saved the day for the Reds. There was no cricket played at Thomas Barclay Oval. Hastings was to resume at 1/20 against Rosebud, who were defending 154. There wasn’t a ball bowled on day two. Rye was 4/68, chasing 8/200 against Seaford Tigers when play was ended. In Sub-District, there was no cricket played across all grounds.

Futile chase: Pines left feeling robbed after dominating Flinders before rain saved their opponents in the Peninsula match. Picture: Andrew Hurst Western Port News 5 December 2017

Tommy Mitchell has a message for Knox SOCCER

By Craig MacKenzie HE is preparing for his 49th straight season at Monterey Reserve and he’s one of the most recognisable characters in the local game. Tommy Mitchell is a living legend. The 66-year-old is a life member of Frankston Pines and wears his heart on his sleeve. In more ways than one. If you haven’t seen the Edinburghborn Mitchell at a senior match wearing one of his Heart of Midlothian scarves and bonnet festooned with club badges then you’re a newcomer to the local scene. Mitchell has three brothers – Colin, Bruce and Grant and the family migrated from Scotland in 1968 and was involved with Chadstone soccer club before joining Pines in the long-defunct District Leagues in 1970. Back then North Altona, Ardeer, Hawksburn and Fitzroy were opponents along with Pascoe Vale and Langwarrin who now enjoy NPL status. It’s been a roller coaster ride for Mitchell. “The highlights were playing in the (2003 Premier League) Grand Final and Ally Dick and Ricky Diaco winning their Gold Medals, Stuart (Webster) winning Goalkeeper of the Year and Stan (Webster) winning Coach of the Year,” The Pines committeeman and ground manager said. “The four straight relegations were the low points and they still hurt.” He’s seen many players come and go never more so than in recent times when the senior squad has been forced

coach at Monterey Reserve. “My favourite saying is that the players that came in are better than what we had before and the ones that left don’t like me telling them that but if the shoe fits wear it,” Mitchell said. “I’m not worried about Knox. We’ll kick their arse. “If they think they’re just going to come down to the Pines and that we’re going to roll over then I’ve got news for them.” He also has news for some local teams. “I’m hoping that Langy goes well in the NPL. It’s a big step status-wise but I think it’s important to have an NPL club in our area because it keeps the decent kids in the area instead of going to Bentleigh or Oakleigh. “I’m expecting Mornington to be up there challenging for the title again but I think Seaford will find it hard to bounce back after being relegated. “There’s a lot of good people there that work hard for the club and it seems to me like the players may be let themselves down last season. “I think Andy (O’Dell) will go well at Strikers if com.au he gets the right players in and the THE PRO PE R TY INSI G HTS SITE players actually give the club the

to rebuild. “I don’t switch clubs like the players do but I blame the clubs because if a player is renowned for changing clubs just chasing what he can then it’s time the clubs stood up to him and said no. “We’ve had to regroup these past few years and it’s not easy having people putting in a lot of hard work then having to start from scratch again.” Newly promoted Knox City is now in State 2 South-East and will be one of Pines’ rivals next season. Contests between these teams will have the added spice of Knox fielding many former Pines’ players and being coached by Danny Verdun, who lifted Pines off the canvas a few seasons back and had a successful four years as senior

draft in replacements from the under18s. Langy won the senior match 1-0 with the decider coming from the penalty spot in the first half and converted stylishly by Mooroolbark striker Sam Klepac. Richmond triallist Lachie Hogben was prominent at right back. His father David was a teammate of Langy senior coach Gus Macleod during their playing days at Green Gully. Boris Ovcin and Dylan Kilner were the only current Langwarrin players in the starting line-up as Macleod used the game to assess the many triallists at his disposal. Warragul United keeper Jake Richardson was in goal in the first half and Altona Magic’s Nick Bergmans took over in the second half. Many coaches play down the importance of results in pre-season games. Not so Macleod, who was enthused by elements of his side’s display. “Results are very important to me. I want to win every game no matter who it is or what it is,” he said. “I thought we were harder to the ball but they were quick up front and you’ve got to be careful. “Overall I was very, very pleased that we kept our organisation, especially because these players had never played together. “We’ve got Kingston next weekend and I’ve said to the triallists that they’ve got three weeks to prove themselves. “We’ve got 20 spots in the squad so we’ll have a very strong 16 and the other four will be younger players.” Langwarrin will play established NPL club Kingston City on Saturday with the under-20s kicking off at 1pm followed by the seniors at 3pm. The venue is yet to be decided as council work continues at Lawton Park. The club will make an announcement later this week. Off the field, Langwarrin has lost a significant source of NPL expertise with the news that Liam Bentley has been appointed Senior Officer of Premier Competitions by Northern NSW Football. Bentley is a former FFV NPL manager and competitions manager and a current Langy committeeman and senior women’s coach. He had been interviewed at Northern NSW Football’s Speers Point headquarters in mid-November and will begin his tenure on 9 January. Jess Kruiskamp is the new head coach of Langy’s senior women’s team and Tanya Wallace is her assistant. Wallace is a former club president and holds a senior coaching licence.

right commitment. “Strikers have to make sure though that they don’t spend money they don’t have if you know what I mean. “I think Skye will be up there challenging again especially with the two Billies (Armour and Rae) running the show. “I think Rosebud Heart’s season will be decided by how many players they keep because there’s a lot of talk about players moving on and I don’t really know enough about Baxter to comment. “As a junior club Somerville Eagles are terrific but as a senior club I think they’re punching above their weight.” But what about Mitchell’s beloved Frankston Pines? What does the club’s immediate future hold? “The Mauritians coming into the club have been good for us and Chris (L’Enclume) and Cedric (Permal) are quality players. “There’s talk about getting more kids down so that we can promote ourselves more as a community-based club and that’s a good thing. “I’d like to think that we’re not just there to make up the numbers next year and that we can do something. I think we can.” And Mitchell couldn’t resist a parting shot at the game’s administrators. “The referees have a thankless job and it’s made even harder with all these changes that are brought in by the people running the game. “It’s got to the stage where even the coaches and players wonder what’s going on. “Most of the rules governing the game have been set in concrete and should be left alone.” Langwarrin’s NPL preparations are in full swing with the club taking on established NPL outfit Box Hill United at Baxter Park last weekend. The under-20s were staring down the barrel after 15 minutes when they were 3-0 down and giving up possession far too easily but they staged a remarkable comeback in a free-flowing contest to run out 7-5 winners. Bentleigh Greens’ recruit Keegan Guy and Nat Daher from Mornington both notched hat-tricks with Langy’s other goal coming from Ayden Eszes. “Of the three early goals two were preventable and down to individual errors,” said under-20s gaffer Kevin “Squizzy” Taylor. “Psychologically to come back from three down is hugely important and it shows them that they can compete at this level because it’s new to most of them.” Taylor has a 16-man squad but five players were unavailable forcing him to

Students bat, bowl way to cricket title MORNINGTON Secondary College cricketers are walking on air after winning the state championship for year 9/10 boys. Health and PE teacher Ben Shorthouse said the competition started in February when the college won the division event on the southern peninsula. In the next game against Cheltenham in the Southern Metropolitan Quarter Final at Carrum, Mornington scored 4-171 and Cheltenham 90 in reply. The next stage was the Southern Metropolitan semi-final and final on the same day at Cheltenham. Mornington played McKinnon in the semifinal and scored 6-133 while bowling McKinnon out for 90 in reply. In the regional final, Kooweerup Secondary College batted first and scored 107. Mornington passed this score six wickets down to qualify for the state quarter-final. The outstanding player was Hayden young with 49. In the state quarter-final at Yarragon against Catholic College Sale, Mornington batted first and posted an excellent 4-151 off 20 overs. Charlie Dixon scored 73 not out off 45 balls and Ben Tennant 39. The Catholic College scored 9/84 in reply. For the fourth time in four years, Mornington qualified for the state semi-finals, after having been runner-up and third in previous attempts. Against Maribyrnong College, a sports academy, Mornington won the toss and batted first. It compiled 4-166 with Will George scoring 80 and captain Nick Mason 49. In reply, Maribyrnong scored 103.

In the final against Notre Dame Catholic College, Shepparton, Mornington batted first and, once again, Will George (37) and Nick Mason (37) controlled the innings and put up 4-152 off 20 overs. Notre Dame lost a wicket first ball of the innings but then shot to 1-70 off eight overs

before failing to score a boundary in six consecutive overs. Clayton Gay took a sensational catch on the boundary to remove their dangerous number 3 batsman. He took two more great catches and another two important wickets. Jordy Kelly also struck twice in an over, with both catches taken by Harry Capes on the deep square boundary. This reduced Notre Dame to 7-90. They were finally dismissed for 118 in the final over of the innings giving Mornington the state championship.

Record breaking streak GOLFERS at the Dunes Medal event took full advantage of the perfect weather on the week before last breaking the course record four times. Having opened the record-breaking streak with a score of 66 on Wednesday 22 November, metropolitan golfer Blake Collyer (72-66-74-64276) topped off the final day of the tournament with a course record 64 to win the Dunes Medal by one stroke over David Micheluzzi. In the third round, Leigh Pritchard

shot 65 to break Collyer’s initial course record before Joseph Bland and Collyer scored a 64 on the final day to take it back. Queenslander, Dee Russell was the victor in the women’s event (74-70-67-77-288) defeating Alizza Hetherington by three shots. AFL Brownlow medallist and former Brisbane Lions Premiership player Jason Akermanis also teed off in the amateur ranking event for his third time but again missed the cut after shooting 85 and 82.

his junior club. With such a long history of success when it comes to preparing junior footballers to reach the top level and having six players drafted in the past five years, the question must be asked, how do they do it? Mt Martha Junior Football Club president James Barrett said that while it probably has a lot to do with the coaching staff that is put in place, the players that are coming through are also fairly naturally talented. “The club itself has a good culture and we make sure our coaches understand our club’s values and how we want our juniors to be developed before they are appointed,” he said. “We have a good working relationship with the Stingrays and while they work outside of us they are certainly a great pathway to get into the AFL and AFLW. “It’s fantastic that we are having our juniors drafted but it’s also about making sure that they are enjoying the sport on their way through to

hopefully a senior career. “Now with the girls coming through the club, hopefully, we can have an AFLW player in the draft in the future.” Beyond Mt Martha, there were also a number of other draftees who hailed from the Mornington Peninsula League in their junior days and combined with the Dandenong Stingrays in this year’s TAC Cup competition. The Stingrays had five players drafted in the first two rounds of this year’s draft, with three in the top 11. Dandenong Stingrays talent manager Mark Wheeler said the club thought they had some good talent heading into the draft with a number of other players also looking a chance to get drafted. “We are pretty ecstatic to see some of them drafted this year,” he said. “We are very proud of those who got drafted and obviously a bit disappointed for those who weren’t able to be.

By Ben Triandafillou and Brodie Cowburn THE Mount Martha Junior Football Club is enjoying more success of late, with another three former players taken in the 2017 AFL draft. At picks seven, 30, and 77 respectively, Hunter Clark, Tom De Koning, and Billy Hartung were drafted to the highest footy level on Friday 24 November. All of the players were drafted to Victorian clubs, allowing them to stay close to home with their family and friends. Hunter Clark was drafted to the St Kilda Football Club inside the top 10 and is touted as a smooth midfielder that is expected to win plenty of the ball. He averaged close to seven tackles a game in the TAC Cup season, showing his tenacity and ferociousness as a footballer. De Koning (200cm) is a tall goal kicker and has been handed his opportunity with Carlton. He will be joining another former Mt Martha junior footballer and number one draft pick in 2015, Jacob Weitering. Selected as the second-last player picked in this year’s draft, Billy Hartung will inject some pace and run into the North Melbourne midfield; with this being his second shot at AFL success after his stint with Hawthorn was cut short. As a junior going through the Mt Martha system, Hartung kicked 20 goals in a single game and also ran a 16.6 on the beep test at the draft combine. He will be hoping he can use these talents to slot straight into the North Melbourne best 22. The three players taken this year add to a storied history of draftees from the junior club, with not one but two previous number one draft picks coming from the club. As juniors, Greater Western Sydney (GWS) midfielder Lachie Whitfield and Carlton utility Jacob Weitering plied their trade for Mt Martha, with Whitfield racking up over 100 games for

“We talk to them all about the idea of a ‘fish pond’ and heading into either the AFL, VFL or wherever they go as they will be a small fish in a big pond. “We teach them that no matter where they go they will need to keep working hard and prove themselves to continue to advance.” Having been in contention for the number one draft pick throughout the year, Luke DaviesUniacke was snatched up by North Melbourne at fourth pick and will enjoy staying in Victoria. Davies-Uniacke will take the number nine guernsey which was previously worn by ex-captain Andrew Swallow. Aiden Bonar will make his move interstate to the GWS Giants having been selected at pick 11 after coming back from two knee reconstructions. “He’s obviously one of the big stories for the club this year,” Wheeler said. “He shows that if you dig in and do the work you can still achieve your dream no matter what stands in front of you.” Oscar Clavarino, along with Hunter Clark, will join St Kilda next year as he was selected at pick 35 and was surprisingly presented his Saints jumper by key midfielder David Armitage. Clavarino will also be joining his close friend and former classmate at Haileybury College, Josh Battle, who was drafted to the team last year. “We’ve made a good relationship with St Kilda and it’s great that we will now have 11 local players listed with them,” Wheeler said. Thomas Murphy will join teammate DaviesUniacke at North Melbourne having been drafted at pick four in last Monday night’s Rookie draft. “He came through the Stingrays at 17-yearsold and had suffered from back fractures, glandular fever a couple of times and recently blood poisoning so it’s great to see him get picked up,” Wheeler said.
