Shedding light on history THE haze created by a traditional smoking ceremony on Sunday seemed entirely appropriate for the day. Hundreds walked along the Hastings foreshore before heading for the Aboriginal Gathering Place in Pound Road where the burning leaves were just part of the ceremony to mark the “Don’t keep history a mystery” reconciliation walk and Mabo Day. More pictures and report on Page 14.

Probe into $3m legal tender Keith Platt MORNINGTON Peninsula Shire councillors have given themselves the right to get legal advice from lawyers other than those recommended by council officers. A $3 million legal services tender, which specifies six legal firms to be used by the shire for legal advice, was signed off on 6 March under delega-

tion by council CEO Carl Cowie. Councillors at their Tuesday 22 May meeting voted to be able to “obtain legal advice from any legal firm it chooses” outside of the Legal Services Panel Tender. They also ordered “a formal and independent investigation” into the process that led to the appointment of the legal services panel. “I asked for [the tender] to be considered by council, but officers chose to do it by delegation,” the mayor Cr

Bryan Payne told The News after the 22 May council meeting. “I was not very happy. My request was ignored.” The announcement of the investigation comes on the eve of councillors’ decision whether to reappoint Mr Cowie or to advertise the CEO position with remuneration of about $400,000. Mr Cowie’s current contract ends in November and council must let him know six months beforehand if the job will be advertised.

Cr Payne said council will make its decision on 12 June. The investigation into the legal services tender by the shire’s Audit and Risk Committee covers: n If the signing off on the $3 million tender was appropriate. n To determine whether the tender evaluation panel was representative of council administration sufficient to evaluate submissions by legal firms for representation across all areas of council business.

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

n Establish why a report was not brought to council to resolve the evaluation of the Legal Services Tender given a direction by the mayor for this to occur. n Develop a protocol for tender evaluations to be brought to council for consideration for matters that are “politically sensitive” or “called in” by council regardless of the delegated authority of the CEO.

Anglers cast reasons to stay put Stephen Taylor WESTERN Port Angling Club members met last week to hear an update on their fight against the Mornington Peninsula Shire’s plans to move their clubhouse away from the water. About 70 people attended, including Boating Industry Association representative Ben Scullin, VR Fish representative Franz Grasser, Hastings MP Neale Burgess, angling club members, Bass Strait Game Fishing Club and Hastings Yacht Club. Mr Burgess is backing the club’s push to remain on the foreshore. Members are angry that the club building, public toilets and grassed area used for the annual whiting challenge presentation since the late 1980s will make way for a roadw and boat trailer parking as shown in the 2017 draft Hastings foreshore precinct plan. The new parking plan will be released on 20 June and go before a council meeting on 26 June for decision. Club members are aware that the Victorian Coastal Strategy 2014 states that foreshore buildings must have “a demonstrated need to be located on the coast”. Committee member Don Newman said the draft Hastings foreshore plan states that fishing events and associated barbecues, although “driven” by having boating access to Western Port, “are not a direct result of where the angling club is located”.

HASTINGS MP Neale Burgess, right, is backing Westernport Angling Club’s bid to retain its near-waterside position on the foreshore. “Gatherings can occur regardless of this facility due to convenient open space access, and storage is not a key requirement in this location,” the draft plan states. Mr Newman said the shire had said it would prefer the club to relocate to another, unidentified building “somewhere in Hastings”. “Rumours exist that the Community

Hub facility near Kings Creek Hotel would be high on the shire’s list,” he said. “Hastings Bowling Club and Hastings Tennis Club are also on the foreshore reserve. Do they have “a demonstrated need to be located on the coast?” The club has drawn up its own boat trailer parking plan which retains the

existing club building, public toilets and grassed picnic area. It has up to 80 parking bays for trailers and four disabled trailer bays on bitumen, as well as overflow parking on grass for up to 130 trailers to cater for more recreational boaters on busy days. Mr Newman said angling club members “oppose any move away from the boat ramp area as we need 24/7 access

to allow members to weigh fish after returning to shore and close proximity to the cleaning table so members can clean and fillet their catch after weighing it”. The members want parking for 1015 vehicles, boats and trailers at the weigh-in for 15-20 competitions each year, and adequate parking for 50-100 vehicles with boats and trailers, plus a suitable grassed area for 300-500 spectators at major public competitions and presentations, such as the whiting challenge and game fishing tournaments. Other “wants” cover power, scales, lighting, public access system, cool room food and drink storage, water, kitchen, public toilets, shelter and storage for valuable raffle prizes, including a boat, motor and trailer. Members say a liquor licence is needed for four meetings a month for anglers and game fishers. A seniors’ competition is held each week and members have guest speaker nights. Revenue from the bar is a major source of club revenue. Also required is a defibrillator which is now in the weigh station and a longterm lease to give the club stability and the ability to extend to care for increased membership and storage of club property. Mr Newman said the state government under The Target One Million and Stronger Fishing Clubs Grants scheme had previously granted the club $2000 for improvements to its club rooms and the installation of a defibrillator and first aid training of club members.

Western Port News 5 June 2018

Stephen Taylor OPPOSITION by the Greens to a parliamentary amendment that would have given the Mornington Peninsula its own planning statement has been described as “so lacking in common sense as to defy belief”. Peninsula Speaks co-founder Christine Haydon was furious after the Greens backed the Labor state government in opposing a Coalition planning and environment amendment which they believe would have given teeth to attempts to overturn an already implemented 11-metre, threestorey height limits. The contentious issue was the subject of several township meetings organised by Mornington Peninsula Shire over the past 12 months held to alert the community to the potential heights of “inappropriate development” in residential areas. Villages and townships said to be under threat include Capel Sound, Rosebud, Dromana, Mt Martha, Mornington, Baxter, Somerville, Tyabb, Hastings and Bittern. The shire wants the government to reinstate the local planning statement which it believes had protected the “unique” character of the peninsula from inappropriate development since the 1970s. Last week’s amendment defeat may have put paid to that. “It was voted down crushing any hope we had of a Localised Planning Statement,” Ms Haydon said.“As the community are aware we all have been working together to prevent three storeys and other changes to the planning laws that were announced in April last year and, to this end, we presented a petition to parliament with about 11,000 signatures. “Last week at a second reading in the Legislative Council, Liberal MP David Davis suggested an amendment to the Planning and Environment Amendment (Distinctive Areas and Landscapes) Bill 2017 that would allow the Mornington Peninsula – along with Macedon Ranges, Yarra Ranges and the Bellarine Peninsula – to have localised

planning statements instead of being wrapped into the Victoria Planning Scheme. “Despite all the hard work and effort across the Mornington Peninsula to avoid this disastrous planning situation the Greens, a party for the environment, have chosen to allow the Macedon Ranges only to be included. “It would appear that the Greens have no concern for the Green Wedge and distinctive areas and landscapes on the peninsula.” Ms Haydon said: “They blindsided us. We only had one opportunity and now that’s lost.” Mornington Peninsula Greens candidate Paul Saunders admitted to being at first “shocked” by his party’s stand on the amendment. “It seemed strange to me [but] I spoke with the state office [afterwards] and they said they had supported the amendment.” Mr Saunders said he was told Greens MPs were “confident that the amendment would not be needed for the localised planning statement to be successful”. In a statement next day, Mr Saunders said the Greens “voted to prevent regional towns and communities from high densification and inappropriate development, such as the height increase to 11-metres in GRZ [General Residential Zone], in some areas”. He said the Greens had asked the minister to prioritise areas “specifically including the Mornington Peninsula”. “The Greens voted down the Liberal amendment to ensure current protection offered by the Local Planning Statement for the Mornington Peninsula is maintained,” he said. “The Greens were assured in Parliament by [Labor MLC for Southern Metropolitan Region and Small Business Minister] Philip Dalidakis that “the localised planning statement will sit above, so it will then inform those processes beneath it, and, obviously it filters down from there”. Mr Saunders said the Greens had “specifically requested the minister [to] recognise the Mornington Peninsula as a distinctive area under the current bill which has bipartisan support”.

The week to get active GROUPS and organisations have been invited to put on events to promote the health of men and boys during Men’s Health Week, 11- 17 June. This year’s theme is Men and families: making healthy connections. The aim is to explore the different ways families can support the health and wellbeing of men and boys, and the positive contributions men and boys make to their families. Mornington Peninsula Shire is inviting men who live, work or play on the peninsula to come together for a special Men’s Health Fest at Civic Reserve, Mornington, 10am-1pm, Friday 15 June. The guest speaker is Craig Harper, a men’s health advocate, exercise scientist, university lecturer, AFL conditioning coach, radio host, TV presenter, writer and business owner. The mayor Cr Bryan Payne said the event was an opportunity for men to take part in sports activities, meet local service providers and share lunch while “having a yarn”. “The health of our community is a high priority for council and this event is a great opportunity to get active and involved in your community,” he said. Chair of the Health and Wellbeing Committee, Seawinds Ward’s Cr Antonella Celi, said the day was about bringing men together to share in an active and inclusive program. It aimed to encourage optimal standards of health and wellbeing and strengthen community connections and support. The Civic Reserve Recreation Centre is at 350 Dunns Road, Mornington.

Supermarket’s backing in the bag Stephen Taylor BALNARRING Boomerang Bags is the first group to have its own stall in a supermarket. Ritchies’ IGA manager Matt Skiller has given the group space as the 30 June deadline for the statewide banning of single use plastic bags in supermarkets approaches. “The cloth bags are going really well with everyone right behind the group’s work,” Mr Skiller said. “Customers are dropping off cloth for them to use in making the bags which can be bought for a dollar coin

donation. Money earned goes back to the group to buy more cloth or sewing machine equipment.” The Balnarring Boomerang Bags group is aiming to educate people about a sustainable alternative to plastic bags. They meet in the Balnarring Primary School art room, 1.30pm on Mondays to collect supplies and create kits. Sewers and non-sewers wanting to join them are welcome. “Fabric is sourced from St Marks Op Shop or donated by ex-sewers, Hastings Upholstery and Warwick Fabrics,” organiser Cheryl McDonald said. “All this fabric is saved from landfill. We have made more than 1500 bags since starting in October 2017.”

Donations are also used to help cover the group’s costs of printing, buying display stands, purchasing labels and screen printing materials. Ms McDonald said the group aimed to educate people about plastic pollution, reduce fabric going to landfill, eliminate the need for plastic bags and create a community of like-minded people “who can make a real difference”. “There are now at least 10 Boomerang Bag communities across the peninsula pumping out thousands of reusable bags made from fabric diverted from landfill,” Ms McDonald said. “It’s pretty amazing stuff.” Details:

POLICE have warned residents about scammers pretending to be from a government agency, including police. They said the scammers’ aim was to scare victims into parting with their money or personal information, threatening them with fines, taking them to court – even deportation. Those contacted unexpectedly and threatened by someone who says they’re from a government agency or trusted business, should always consider the possibility that it may be a scam – then stop and check if it’s for real, the police said.

Jobs focus for Indigenous A SERVICE for Indigenous job seekers in the Melbourne south east region was launched this week. Elder Uncle Chris West hosted a welcome to country and smoking ceremony at the Narim Marr Dihambana (Frankston Gathering Place) on Monday (28 May) to launch the Deadly Yakka program. The program is a MatchWorks employment agency two-week course specifically designed for Indigenous people. MatchWorks executive general manager Renae Lowry said the program aims to build a network for job seekers to find a job they are passionate about. “It covers goal setting and personal development, life skills for work, interview skills, cultural awareness training, presentation advice, workplace expectations and job search skills while also ad-

dressing personal barriers to understand what has been holding participants back in their journey to work,” she said. The Deadly Yakka program has previously been rolled out in Bendigo, Sunshine, Bacchus Marsh, Werribee and Warrnambool. Indigenous mentors stay in touch with job seekers and participants when employed to help with stable employment. Matchworks has offices in Frankston, Pakenham, Mornington, Hastings and Rosebud in the region. See online or call 5229 8733 for more details.

Continued from Page 1 The committee must report back to council by 30 June on the findings of its investigation and “on delegations from council to the CEO”. Mr Cowie told The News it was “inappropriate to comment on any allegations” contained in the notice of motion adopted by council while the investigation was underway. Cr Hugh Fraser, a barrister, said the management review of where council obtained its legal advice “did not go far enough”. He said the review should have established a Governance and Legal Services Panel encompassing general legal services, litigated insurance claims, privacy and freedom of information and risk management consultants “along the lines recently established by the Melbourne City Council”. “It’s really important that council have ready and appropriate access to reliable legal advice and, where necessary, independent of management’s instructions,” Cr Fraser said. “It’s an essential check and balance in local government. The two recent council resolutions assert council’s authority and establish a process as to this.” Cr Payne said the panel of legal firms chosen by council officers led by the shire’s in-house solicitor, David Carrington, “didn’t have people with local government experience”. He said councillors had “felt left out of the process … We didn’t have any input”. “This shouldn’t have happened at all … [coming to us] should have been part of the exercise.” Cr Payne said the legal firms on the panel could be used by the shire’s administration, but councillors “want specialists in local government law for council’s purposes, [we’ll] choose out own [lawyers] for advice”. “I raised the matter because it was a $3 million contract and council should be reviewing it. “Under delegation rules, the CEO can OK any contract if it’s within the budget. That’s a bad policy and could be open to corruption.” Cr Payne said the shire had never before tendered for legal services. “The intention was very correct - to test the market. It’s such a large amount of money and should [achieve] some savings.”

In the ring and out, sharing life’s lessons Stephen Taylor MT ELIZA boxing trainer and fitness coach Ron Smith certainly “carries the reminders/Of ev’ry glove that laid him down …” as the song says. But the 74-year-old is much more than just a former amateur boxing champion: he was also a jockey, ultra-marathon runner, high rise construction site manager, government safety inspector and, more recently, a personal trainer with a strong local following. He is now an author with his autobiography The Boxer on sale at Petersen’s Bookstore, Hastings. Ron and his wife Sharyn run the Centre for Lifelong Health & Fitness and Mt Eliza Boxing Centre, in Kunyung Road. It’s a long way from the start of a life in boxing for the man who can look back on 108 bouts – 18 professional – and thousands of hours training in the gym. “I left school at 13 with a dream of becoming a jockey, got in trouble with the law and discovered boxing at the Police Youth Boys Club,” he said. “Boxing opened the door to a kid from a poor family and taught me about life. “I learned how to protect myself and evade an aggressor and not get hit.” Ron took his lessons seriously and went on to win three Victorian amateur championships and trialled for the 1964 Tokyo Olympics. He worked in high-rise building construction and became a site foreman and, later, a government safety inspector. Throughout this time he says he “battled alcohol, guilt and poor choices; and struggled to be a good husband, father and family man”. Things came to head when he was told in his mid-30s that, if he didn’t improve his lifestyle, he “probably wouldn’t live to see 40”. That “severe wake-up call” goaded him into action: over the next year he stopped drinking and lost almost 30 kilograms. Then he started running marathons and, not long after that, ultra-marathons.

At 57, Ron decided to devote himself to staying healthy and strong and helping others – of all ages – become fit and healthy … and stay that way. “I’d seen men in their 50s with health problems and informally encouraged them to get their lives back on track,” he said, happy to act as a role model. “Everyone can succeed if they’re prepared to learn about themselves, get out of their comfort zone and spend time in positive environments in which they can thrive. “We can all strive to be our best, regardless of



genetics, age or past lifestyle choices. What you put in is what you get out.” A case in point is former featherweight boxing champion Johnny Famechon who won the world title in 1970 but who was tragically hit by a car while out running in 1991. He later suffered a stroke. As a fellow boxing competitor in the 1960s and 1970s Ron admires and respects Famechon whom he trains regularly. “I respect him more now than I did then,” he says. Ron plans to keep on teaching children the art of self-defence and self-respect at the Mt Eliza Box-

ing Centre so his story, unlike The Boxer book, is not finished. “We’ve had thousands of children come here to learn the ‘noble art’ and I can see it doing them the world of good,” he said. He is confident that regular training and adherence to the discipline, dedication and focus that makes the sport great is good for everyone. “It’s not the boxer that makes the man, but the man that makes the boxer.” n The Boxer is available to buy at Petersen’s Bookstore, 103 High Street, Hastings.

MORNINGTON Peninsula fungi-foragers are being advised to watch out for poisonous mushrooms springing up after recent rains. Lisa Gray, of Somerville, said she found “loads” of deadly death cap mushrooms in her backyard last week – not long after her pet dog died of a heart attack. “It may be related,” she said on social media. Victoria’s Chief Health Officer Professor Charles Guest said foragers risked picking up poisonous varieties which may appear similar to edible varieties. The warning comes as winter rains encourage the growth of fungi in the still-warm earth.

Two of the most dangerous varieties are death cap fungus and the yellow staining mushroom. “The death cap is extremely toxic and responsible for 90 per cent of all mushroom poisoning deaths. Death can follow within 48 hours,” Prof Guest said. “Commercially-sold mushrooms are safe, [but] poisonings can occur when those gathering wild mushrooms pick up toxic species by mistake.” Anyone becoming ill after eating mushrooms should seek urgent medical attention and, if possible, take samples of the whole mushroom for identification.

Watch out: the whales are coming AMATEUR whale spotters are being called on to provide data on the number of whales swimming past the Mornington Peninsula. With the help of these citizen scientists the Two Bays Whale Project was last year able to estimate that 458 individual whales were seen in and around the peninsula and Port Phillip and Western Port bays. The project has been running since 2015 in collaboration between the Hastings-based Dolphin Research Institute and Wildlife Coast Cruises. Experts list the best land-based whale observation points in the Two Bays region as being Barwon Bluff; Port Phillip Heads; Cape Schanck; The Nobbies, Pyramid Rock and Cape Woolamai on Phillip Island; and the Bass Coast. “The 2017 whale season broke all previous records with a total of 218 validated sightings of four whale species between 15 May and 5 December. In total the estimated number of individual whales was 458, which is a whopping 296 more whales than the 2016 season estimate,” project co-founder and curator David Donnelly said. “Whether this is a case of more whales, more people looking or a combination of both is yet to be determined, but one thing’s for sure, whales never fail to attract the attention of the public.” Mr Donnelly said sightings of large whales in the bays and along the open coast “have become so regular in the winter months that it is now more of an expectation rather than a novelty to see a whale at this time of year”. He said whale watchers on high coastal vantage points could expect to see migrating humpback whales with less frequent sightings of southern right and killer whales. “With a good set of binoculars, whale watchers should be looking for the characteristic blow to first pinpoint whales,” Mr Donnelly said.

“Careful observations may permit behaviours and directions of movement to be noted. It can be very difficult, even for experienced observers to be sure about numbers, but an estimate is helpful. Record date, time, numbers, location as well as you can pinpoint – such as 500 meters south east of Cape Schanck direction of travel and behaviours.” He said understanding whale numbers and movements is critical to their management and protection. “But it is a huge challenge, taking decades of piecing together snippets of data, to create a reliable understanding about the lives of these remarkable visitors in our waters. “Humpbacks are most likely passing through our waters on their northerly migration from Antarctica along the eastern Australian coast. Hunted to the edge of extinction during the industrial whaling era, humpback whales have made an impressive comeback, with eastern Australian numbers expected to reach around 33,000 individuals this year. This is quite remarkable when you consider the post whaling population estimate to be only 200 – 400 individuals.” Mr Donnelly said southern right whales – classed as threatened - come to the Two Bays area to mate and give birth. “These animals are from the southeast Australian population with numbers estimated to be between just 250 and 300 individuals with no noticeable increase in population size since whaling ceased.” Penalties apply for deliberately approaching a whale closer than 200m for vessels; 300m for jet skis; 500m height for aircraft (including drones).

Protecting the bays THE Hastings-based Dolphin Research Institute has a grand plan to improve and maintain the health of Port Phillip and Western Port bays. This week the DRI launches its “i sea, i care communities” project which, according to the institute’s executive director Jeff Weir “invites the five million of us living around the bays to commit to simple actions that will help to protect our marine treasures”. “If we can get only a fraction of us always picking up after our dog, reducing what we allow to drip, drop or blow into streets which is then flushed into the bay, then we will make a difference,” Mr Weir said. “i sea, i care communities is also about sharing stories about our wonderful bays and great things that many groups in the community are doing. It’s also about supporting the institute’s work through volunteering, citizen science and donating. “We understand that no-one is perfect and the challenges for families and businesses with limited time and budgets. “We will help with ideas and encouragement. By finding small steps that we can all take, together we will build a community that cares enough about bays to change how we live around them.” To get involved go to and select the “i sea, i care communities” link. Bookings are also open for the cocktail function launch of “i sea, i care communities” and World Oceans Day 6pm Friday 8 June at the Portsea Village Resort on www. or call 5979 7100.

Understanding grief and personal loss

A FORUM held at Rosebud last week to discuss traffic noise and its effect on residents living near the Mornington Peninsula Freeway “went very well”. Organiser Wayne Ashley said there was a “full house” at the Rosebud Country Club, Wednesday 30 May. “We had a very good question time and a lot of ideas and issues to pursue,” Mr Ashley said. “Letters have been sent to the state health minister identifying the ongoing health issues emanating from increased traffic, pollution and noise causing health issues, anxiety, depression and dementia.” Mr Ashley said residents of Dromana, Rosebud, McCrae and Safety Beach “have had enough of traffic noise”.

“VicRoads needs to address the issue of traffic noise for the whole of the Mornington Peninsula Freeway and not adopt a piecemeal approach,” he said. VicRoads noise measurements were just below what are considered to now be antiquated regulatory guidelines governing traffic noise near residential dwellings, he said. “Enough is enough and it is time for action and to start protesting to the state government and VicRoads.” Those attending included Nepean MP Martin Dixon, Nepean endorsed Liberal candidate Russell Joseph, Nepean endorsed Greens’ candidate Paul Saunders, and Mornington Peninsula Shire’s Cr Antonella Celi.

Call for comment on The Pillars Stephen Taylor A PLAN to oversee public access to The Pillars and identify ways to manage its hordes of visitors while protecting cultural and environmental values is up for public comment. Mornington Peninsula Shire acknowledges that the effect of visitors on the vulnerable site – and its impact on residents – is “still a major issue for council”. The mayor Cr Bryan Payne said given the increasing popularity of the site “we need to protect it from further impact”. “This plan aims to achieve this.” Input for the plan has so far come from DELWP, Parks Victoria, Bunurong Land Council, Victoria Police, VicRoads, Ambulance Victoria, Mt Martha CFA, Mt Martha LSC, Life Saving Victoria and the community. “From feedback we’ve received to date, measures implemented by council have reduced the impacts to local residents,” Cr Payne said. “We encourage the community to continue providing feedback on issues associated with … the site as well as providing comments on the draft plan.” Strategies to control visitors over summer included installing 40kph speed signs; warning signs; parking restrictions and No Stopping signs from November-April and alcohol bans.

Boardwalk on backburner NO decision has been made by Mornington Peninsula Shire Council on building a boardwalk to link The Pillars with beach access points, and reducing the number of people walking along the Esplanade. Property and strategy manager Yasmin Woods said last week: “At its meeting on 22 May council decided: That it is noted the draft long term management plan makes it clear that council has not, at this stage, considered or made decisions in relation to the boardwalk.” She said actions that have been taken are listed at Bollards were installed along the Esplanade to prevent parking and create room for pedestrians and traffic counts and parking surveys were held at peak times in surrounding streets to gauge traffic impacts. Parking patrols were held three times a day, seven days a week in peak periods and litter patrols increased. Following the public exhibition the feedback will be reviewed and, possibly, incorporated in the plan. Community comment is open until 15 July. Residents can contribute online at mornpen.vic. Surveys are also available in hard copy at the shire’s offices in Rosebud, Mornington, Hastings and Somerville.

Reconciliation celebration looks to future

MEMBERS of the Mornington Peninsula’s Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander community celebrated National Reconciliation Week at the Rosebud Memorial Hall, Tuesday 22 May. The Warringinee Group presented on what has been achieved in the community over the past year and what its members are working towards this year. The group supports cultural diversity and promotes understanding of the issues facing Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islanders. The mayor Cr Bryan Payne said it was “fantastic” to hear from the group about its successes and plans. “We are committed to continuing our active engagement, consultation and partnerships with local Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander residents and business

groups – especially as we work on the development of the new Reconciliation Action Plan 2018-2022.” Inter Council Aboriginal Consultative Committee representative Cr Sam Hearn said it was “wonderful hearing about how the Warringinee Group is working hard on improving health literacy, cultural safety and family engagement”. Deborah Mellett, Aboriginal health coordinator – Aboriginal Early Years, said the event was an opportunity to celebrate achievements. “It has been a great experience engaging with the wider community in our Reconciliation Action Plan community consultations.” Residents can comment on the new Reconciliation Action Plan until 5pm, Sunday 10 June.

Surviving and thriving with cancer WHEN Somers local Linda Wilson was diagnosed with pancreatic cancer six years ago, she made a decision to live life to the fullest. She has been able to do just that while staying in her local community, thanks to the oncology team at Frankston Hospital. “The five-year survival rate for people with pancreatic cancer is 7%,” explains the 61-yearold mother of three. “Being a nurse and knowing what pancreatic cancer is like I decided from the day I was diagnosed that I wasn’t going to waste a minute of it being miserable.” “I was told my cancer was incurable so I asked the question that you don’t really like to ask – I was told I probably had 6-12 months, if I was lucky.” However just over five years later Linda has beaten the odds, after receiving a number of different treatments at Frankston Hospital. “I’d been on chemotherapy for a while but then the team looking after me felt that particular drug wasn’t working as effectively, so I was prescribed another treatment and now my tumour markers are right down,” explains the grandmother of six. “The treatment is a maintenance program which holds my cancer at bay – it’s still an ongoing fight to keep it that way.” The team at Frankston Hospital is up to the challenge and is doing everything it can to support Linda so she can continue nursing part time and enjoying her favourite past time – fishing in

her kayak. “The oncologist who is looking after me sent my tumour overseas to have it tested to see whether there were any other drugs that could help me or whether any of the clinical trials that are on offer at the moment are suitable for me,” explains Linda. “They have recently found a clinical trial that is suitable for me. However since the treatment I’m on is currently working I don’t need to go on it right now. It is nice to know though that there are still other options available if this drug stops being effective.” Linda agrees that she would not be able to keep working and spend as much time fishing and with her family if she couldn’t get care close to home at Frankston Hospital. Demand continues to grow for the oncology service, which is why Peninsula Health is asking the community to Take a Break for Cancer and raise funds to expand cancer services on the Peninsula so that more people like Linda can get the world class care and support they need, close to home. “A lot of people are touched by family and friends who need to access the cancer service,” explains Linda. “It’s very important people support their local hospital.” Take a Break for Cancer today by hosting your own fundraising event or making a donation online at

‘Mabo’ walk aims to de-mystify history WILLUM Warrain Aboriginal Association held its second Mornington Peninsula Reconciliation Walk on Sunday – Mabo Day 3 June – with the theme: “Don’t keep history a mystery”. A crowd of about 750, including members of the Aboriginal community, friends and supporters of Willum Warrain, and the broader peninsula community, strolled from Pelican Park along the Hastings foreshore to the Aboriginal Gathering Place at 10 Pound Road. On arrival there was an acknowledgement of country and introduction by board members Jeanette Kaindel and Debbie Clifford. This was followed by speeches from the mayor Cr Bryan Payne and Willum Warrain president Peter Aldenhoven and then a smoking ceremony accompanied by Lionel Lauch on didgeridoo. After the formalities the Balnarring kindergarten choir and the Mullum Mullum Aboriginal choir sang before enjoying a community barbecue. “William Warrain sees itself as an important destination for reconciliation for the whole peninsula,” president Peter Aldenhoven said. “We want to continue our shared journey together as we seek to build a brighter, more reconciled future for our country.” Many of those attending wore Aboriginal or Torres Strait Islander colours, waved flags or carried banners in support of the day. “It was evident that there is a real yearning to learn more about our past and use this understanding to inform our future,” Mr Aldenhoven said. Willum Warrain plans to host the walk every year on the last day of Reconciliation Week, or Mabo Day, which celebrates the trail-blazing land rights achievements of Torres Strait Islander man Eddie “Koiki” Mabo. “The hope is that the walk will grow in size and prominence and become an increasingly significant Reconciliation event for the peninsula,” Mr Aldenhoven said.

Who assesses AGL’s assessments? AGL has produced extensive environmental impact assessments to support the establishment and operation of its proposed [floating] gas import terminal at Crib Point. Significant risks of adverse social and environmental impacts resulting from the proposal, however, exist. Just who, if anyone, is going to critically review the documentation produced by AGL to independently determine whether or not their conclusions are valid? Will this be done by the state or federal environment protection authority or by other Government agencies? Of serious concern is that the Victorian and Commonwealth governments are simply going to accept the assessments provided by AGL without question. It defies comprehension that responsible government would not conduct a rigorous and independent review of such a proposal. To not do so would appear to be a major abrogation of their responsibility to the community and the environment. John Humphrey, Bittern

Hard to believe I cannot believe that when Flinders MP Greg Hunt and local government councillors are told of our serious concerns over the proposed AGL floating storage gas terminal (FSRU) to be moored at Crib Point jetty they all tell us to talk to AGL about our worries and go to its website to find out more (“Go to websites for answers” Letters 29/5/18). All governments (federal state and local) involved should be carrying out joint independent and rigorous reviews of AGL’s assessments on their FSRU proposal. AGL’s credibility has been shot to pieces after its disgraceful fracking (hydraulic fracturing) performance in the Hunter Valley in NSW. The Mayor of Gloucester said he had “lost faith and trust” in what they had been told by AGL. The EPA said it was concerned at “AGL’s lack of transparency”. Yet all these governments seem to be only taking notice of AGL over this matter. Either they don’t want to know or they don’t know about its performance in the Hunter Valley. I think it is the former rather than the latter. I call on them to please listen to the people not the multi-nationals. That is why we elect them. Rod Knowles, Crib Point

Lack of represenation Reading your paper has become most depressing. First we get the news that AGL wants to import gas through Crib Point in 2020 just as Australia becomes the world’s largest exporter of that very commodity. And if that isn’t ludicrous enough, we find out that it comes with substantial risks: sterile and cold water discharge, a massive cold water plume and 45kg of chlorine discharged on a daily basis when in operation to the marine environment. The risks on land are even more concerning: noise in the adjacent areas, restrictions on the use of the local picnic areas and a real risk of an explosion which would see devastation out to at least 2.3km. Next, we find that the Mornington Peninsula Shire mayor [Cr Bryan Payne] seems to think that this is a good idea, at least he said so on ABC radio, completely overlooking the Crib Point Community Plan. While the state MP for Hastings Neale Burgess has made his opposition to the AGL proposal clear (“MP against Crib Point gas plan” The News 24/4/18) the federal MP for Flinders Greg Hunt declined to do this, telling Sylvia Simons that she should take part in the AGL process (“MP urges feedback for gas terminal” The News 22/5/18). So much for representative government. In the same edition of the paper we find that the shire has cast us adrift again when it argues that Hastings - connected by rail to Stony Point - “is a far more appropriate destination for electric rail than Baxter”. What of those of us south of Hastings when the train stops there? No one is going to run a non-electrified service for the 12km between Hastings and Stony Point. Again, it seems that that yet another arm of government is not representing the people of Crib

Point and Bittern and their interests. Don Juniper, Bittern

Environmental impact Is Flinders MP Greg Hunt serious? I see his great suggestions for the community to air any safety concerns about the AGL proposal to ship liquid gas Into Crib point as just an attempt to get his name into the media (“MP urges feedback for gas terminal” The News 22/5/18). The greatest concern about this sad enterprise for most is the environmental impact on Western Port from this process. To report our concerns to the propaganda arm of AGL would be a waste of time, seeing at some of their public displays the environment was a very unanswered issue. Wouldn’t it be a much better thing if our exminister for the environment would represent his constituents concerns directly with the corporate behemoth AGL? Rupert Steiner, Balnarring Beach

Ramping up problems Having won at VCAT (Victorian Civil Administrative Tribunal), Mornington Peninsula Shire Council has announced that the $1.2 million project to extend the Rye boat ramp six metres seaward and add an extra boat ramp will now go ahead. However, anyone who thinks the proposal will be a permanent solution to queuing on the six spike days a year, or an end to the need for dredging and pumping of sand on to the beaches will be sadly mistaken. It is likely to make these problems worse. I remind everyone that there was no statistical justification for this expansion, and subsequent council reports did not recommend Rye as a priority. There has also been no acknowledgment of the fact that the existing ramp adversely affects coastal processes, despite the council’s 2013 Rye Coastal Processes Study clearly stating that it does. The actual need, how it will affect residents of Rye, or how it would affect the coastal environment was of little or no concern to the council, or Cr Hugh Fraser. The poor community consultation was always as much concern to me as the boat ramp, as officers misrepresented the views of Rye residents to councillors and the state government. The MP for Nepean Martin Dixon raised this issue in state parliament. David Trunfull, Rye

MPs need checking For far too long the federal government failed to act on allegations of serious misconduct and corruption in the banking, superannuation and financial sectors and we now see clearly the results of that. Now they are standing in the way of an anticorruption body using almost the exact same arguments they used to avoid the banking royal commission. Powerful forces must be at work for the Coalition to continue to delay backing such a popular measure, and we have to only use a bit of imagination to see the rotten fruit that an anticorruption commission would uncover. We only have to look at the corruption caught out by state anti-corruption commissions in local councils (Ipswich, as one example). We would have to be nuts to believe that our federal MPs are squeaky clean, based on their previous behaviour that actually saw the light of day. Just think of an anti-corruption commission with the power to prosecute these people rather than the self-policing government that accepts an “I am sorry”, with absolutely not even a slap on the wrist or forcing them to pay back the funds they have stuck in their pockets (taking their families on vacation at our expense, for example). I mean really, they get enough entitlements (Google “Federal MP entitlements” for a shocking ride). To start with, why do they have to abuse the system? Oh yeah, basically lacking of a moral compass which might be considered corruption. The government was quick to set up an antiunion commission which spent millions and

Trap the vermin and spare the birds With winter having arrived with a wet and windy vengeance unwanted mice, rats and other vermin will be taking up residence in our homes garages and out buildings. Often our first response is to lay poisoned baits to kill them. The problem with this method is not only does it kill target vermin it also kills unintended native species and many of our precious and endangered birds that eat the poisoned rodents. This causes debilitating illness and death, reducing bird numbers that are already facing dwindling populations throughout the Mornington Peninsula due to human activity, particularly habitat loss as a result

of urban sprawl. Many of our raptors, such as black shouldered kites, nankeen kestrels, peregrine falcons and wedge-tailed eagles, that eat and naturally control rats and mice are only just clinging on in sufficient numbers to maintain healthy offspring. A safe and cost effective method of rodent control is using traps. Traps humanely and quickly kill target vermin while safely protecting our precious birds and other native species. So if you are out shopping, please look out for our unique bird life and buy traps instead of poison baits. George Russell, Portsea

train back to Mornington” Letters 22/5/18). It is astounding that the state government could have removed such an important public amenity as a public train line. Maybe the focus was more on roads back in 1981, but the two transport systems are necessary and complement one another. Now, if residents want to go to the city by train they have to struggle to find a car park at Frankston or another station nearby. Alternatively, it is necessary to catch a bus to Frankston station but this involves sometimes a long walk to the bus stop, standing in the cold, wind or rain, or the heat in summer, waiting for a bus, and then the same again on the return trip, by which time it might be dark and feel less safe. Such a process is far more difficult for people who are elderly, disabled, have young children or just people who can’t walk long distance due to a health condition. How much nicer and more convenient it would be to drive to Mornington station with ample parking, take the train to the city and then return to Mornington with car waiting right there at the station. The lack of a train line to Mornington hugely disadvantages local residents. At a time when public transport should be supported to reduce the use of fossil fuels and to reduce congestion on roads, I sincerely hope that a call to restore the train line to Mornington receives strong consideration and action. Janet Turnbull, Mornington

To the beholder The question of a view is always fascinating. In earlier years we would walk along the Gold Coast beach admiring the wonderful houses and obviously the views. A friend had a magnificent view of Port Phillip from his on high Rye property, but was most annoyed with one tree blocking some 10 per cent of his view. I asked how often he sat looking at his 90 per cent view: “That’s not the point,” he said. “It’s a feeling, uplifting, cultural even.” I got a taste of this “culture” during my many visits to Manly - hiring a unit with a balcony, the Pacific Ocean, and my two stubbies every evening around 5pm. I don’t know how, but he eventually had that tree removed and, interestingly, sold a year later. Cliff Ellen, Rye

Dead by 2030? It’s heartening to hear that 80 per cent of Australians want action on the climate crisis now. This is greater than the 70 per cent in the 1990s who fell to greed and corporate fossil promises. The trouble is that humans may only have 12 years to extinction – some scientists say three to seven years – unless massive changes occur in our attitudes and behaviour While there are many projects to join to make a difference, the best is to change one’s lifestyle to draw-down mode. That is, refuse fossil fuel products – such as plastic, gas, petrol and shampoo – and stop energy and water waste. Reduce all product use (particularly water to 50 litres a person a day), reuse and recycle your heart out. For the most forceful and fastest action you’ll need to green your vote and your homes. The Coalition and Labor can’t or won’t do anything (example: continued vegetation removals, the death of the Great Barrier Reef, the Coorong and throwing their hands in the air over the Murray Darling River system, our food bowl). Another of their worst inadequacies is their continued push for fossil fuel, the lowering of renewable targets to a 28 per cent reduction – effectively only five per cent – by 2030. This is beyond panic, fighting, scoring points, lies, controversy or stupidity. If we don’t change direction for the better immediately, we are dead. Kaye Mackay, Rye

Waiting for the train I fully support the idea of bringing the train back to Mornington and the idea of the station being in the Watts and Yuilles roads area (“Bring the

Tree dangers ignored Despite previous power line severances, physical traumas, repeated property damage and [Mornington Peninsula Shire’s] senior staff’s written assurances that these dangerous trees and large, heavy, overhanging power lines and roads, branches would be removed “as soon as is possible” and the trees then “safely maintained”, not a single branch or tree has been removed from any of the well notified sites in Point Nepean Road, Hotham Road or Greenwood Avenue, Sorrento, in nine years. Many of these branches have been half or more fallen for years but are still ignored. On 14 February two large branches fell on to the footpath in Point Nepean Road narrowly missing several adults and children and again requiring the use of the State Emergency Services, while two fallen trees on this roadside remain in situ 21 months after being notified. The senior staff now refuse to answer when this pledged safety work will be carried out while the potentially fatal dangers to ratepayers and others who use the sites continues. Integrity and safety should be the shire’s main priorities Gillian Brown, on behalf of the Point Nepean Road and Greenwood Avenue, Sorrento, ratepayers and their children. Western Port News

Commemorative trees planned Compiled by Brodie Cowburn A MEETING of the Frankston residents was held on 17th September, 1917, to decide upon a site on which to plant an honor avenue of trees, to commemorate the self–sacrifice and bravery of each true Frankstonite, who heard the call of his country in distress, and who hurried across the seas to stand in the ranks with the men of our dear Motherland, side by side with the just nations of the earth to stop the enemy in their dream of world supremacy. After the most painstaking deliberation and exhaustive discussion of the suitability of the various roads leading into the town, it was decided that only the very best road was worthy of being honored by a memorial to our very best men. The citizens who arrived at this most commendable decision were conscious that the selection of the best site meant the desecration of the resting place of many dead and dying native trees, the loss of the gnarled beauty of the shady ti-tree, the twittering of the early morning birds and the disturbance of the soft carpet of moss, bespangled with dew—all so dear to us in our idle moments of self indulgence. But the same citizens were also conscious that but for the self– sacrifice of our noble boys the twittering of birds might even now give place to the shreiks of our loved ones, and the moss be bespattered with the blood of those who would vainly defend them. As our heroes stand out distinct

from the rest of us, so shall their respective trees stand out, erect in the sunlight, and dressed as on parade; and the tree selected is the best of our own dear eucalypts, whose beautiful and wonderful value, like our boys’ superb courage, is known throughout the world. *** “THE pleasure of suffering for others” was practised by the children of the Frankston school during a self-denial week which ended on the 1st June. The movement was initiated by the Education Department to raise funds for the Australian Red Cross. As the total of the little ones’ pennies for this school was £5 12 4½, a substantial sum should be contributed by the whole State to this most worthy object. *** THE matron and staff of St Pancras private hospital, Frankston, are holding a Red Cross sale at the hospital on Wednesday next, June 12th, in aid of the Red Cross funds. The sale will be opened at 2.30pm by Mrs Jas. Grice. Afternoon tea, for the modest sum of 3d, will be provided. Admission is 3d, and it is to be hoped all who can will attend, and help swell the funds. *** SEE yourself as others see you. The Pageant of Loyalty picture (Frankston Procession) will be shown in the Frankston Mechanics’ Hall at 8pm sharp this evening. Back seats are 2s. and there are a limited number of front forms at 1s.

We advise readers to secure their seats early for a record house is expected. The object is such a worthy one patrons will in a small way reciprocate the great support given to Frankston by the Langwarrin Military Band and Orchestra. *** MR H. Shepherd and family desire to thank their many friends for their expressions of sympathy, floral tributes, etc. in their recent bereavement, especially the Rev. Rymer, Dr Atkinson, and Nurse McCoy. *** UNTIL recently the Frankston “Wattle Club” has been greatly hampered in its work of entertaining our wounded soldiers owing to lack of tables. Thanks to Mr Chas A. Tait of Frankston the table problem has now been solved. Mr Tait went personally to several timber merchants in Melbourne and pointed out to them the good work the “Wattle Club” is doing, and their urgent need for assistance towards obtaining tables. In consequence of Mr Tait’s representation two firms, (Messrs Beauchamp and Anthony) rose to the occasion and supplied Mr Tait with sufficient timber to make the tables required. Mr Tait had the timber sent to Langwarrin Camp where, owing to the courtesy of Major Conder and his staff the timber was speedily converted into serviceable tables and delivered free of cost at the Frankston Mechanics’ Hall

The Barbecue Shape I’m In By Stuart McCullough I’LL admit I watch them; those cooking show where all the contestants have a ‘story’ that involves overcoming incredible odds to defy adversity only to emerge, phoenixlike, from the ashes while wearing a cooking apron and clutching a spatula as though it were the very sword of Damocles itself. These people are presented as so much more than mere contestants on a cooking show. They’re players in life’s great drama, inching ever closer to their manifest destiny one compote at a time. All them are on a journey, even if that journey is simply to dessert. My favourite bit is the heirloom recipe. This is the dish the contestant was taught to make by his grandmother who, inevitably, was a one-legged goat-herder that grew up sheltering under a piece of cardboard with thirty siblings before lifting herself up by the bootstraps she undoubtedly was too poor to own and who shuffled off this mortal coil just moments before the cameras started rolling. These recipes are so much more than food on a plate. They’re a glimpse into the soul of the person who made them. With instructions that were scribbled down on the back of a betting slip while under cannon fire during a Napoleonic war, these are dishes that survived for generations. When a contestant cooks an heirloom recipe, he’s not serving a meal; he’s presenting a legacy. It got me wondering: what’s my heirloom recipe? What’s my legacy

dish that’ll make the judges get a little bit teary and prompt them to say that a long-departed relative would surely be proud of me? The Irish side of my family are better bakers than cooks. So far as I could tell, Irish cooking mostly involved boiling things until the colour was completely vapourised and the original ingredient could only be identified by its dental records. If I’m being honest, my heirloom

recipe isn’t overly fancy. It doesn’t involve me making my own pasta dough using a thimble-full of unicorn tears as the special ingredient or a sponge cake baked during the vernal equinox for optimal fluffiness. For crying out loud, it doesn’t even require me to make my own shortcrust pastry while-- blindfolded and holding a frog in each hand. Not at all. My legacy dish is surprisingly

simple: barbecue shapes with cheese and cabana. I know what you’re thinking. Even though the words ‘that doesn’t sound like a competition dish’ are almost certainly on your lips, at the same time you feel suddenly hungry. That’s because no one can resist the lure of barbecue shapes with cheese and cabana. It was my father’s go-to dish. Every night when he’d arrive home from work, he’d whip up a plate of barbecue shapes, with cheese and cabana and wash it down with a small glass of sherry. This was no mere appetizer. It was the height of sophistication in a family that, broadly speaking, was afraid of heights. I’m surprised when I glance through a menu to not find it. If that sounds absurd, I’ve encountered a range of childhood favourites in a restaurant setting including something that claimed to be a ‘Wagon Wheel’ but ended up being some kind of deconstructed monstrosity. To be fair, it kind of tasted like a Wagon Wheel but it looked like something Picasso might have made. As a kid, I never thought the only thing that’d make a Wagon Wheel taste better was if it’d been baked by a cubist. I’ve seen a ‘Cherry Ripe’ once on a dessert menu but was afraid to order it in case it was Salvador Dali’s shift in the kitchen. Last week, my wife was putting together a plate of barbecue shapes, cheese and cabana. I don’t know if she’s practicing for MasterChef or just being thoughtful but she rang me on the way home to query the recipe.

Specifically, she wanted to know if she should place the cabana on the biscuit, followed the cheese. It’s funny how the small things can pretty much make or break a recipe. What my wife didn’t realize that by proposing to put the cheese on top rather than sandwiched between the other two items, she was casually suggesting the kind of heresy that got Joan of Arc into tonnes of trouble. Patiently, I explained that it was always a matter of placing the cheese on top of the biscuit before adding the cabana. Thinking that was the end of it, I was shocked when my wife suggested that her way would, in all probability, be much better. Doing all I could to remain composed, I politely indicated that putting the cheese on last would result in a hors d’oeuvre with a cheese hat that’d insult everyone. But she insisted. She was sure the folks from MasterChef would agree. It was a big claim coming from someone whose heirloom dish is Chicken Tonight. The weird thing is, I can’t eat barbecue shapes, cheese and cabana without thinking of my family. That may sound absurd, but the very sight of it transports me back to another time. It’s funny how little it takes to evoke such nostalgia. It’s funnier still how little it takes to make me feel quite peckish. As soon as a finish writing this, I think I-- might make myself a snack. A plate of barbecue shapes, cheese and cabana would do the trick quite nicely. I’ll be sticking to the original recipe.

OUR feet and legs are vital for mobility and balance and are the basis of most of our daily activities, so its no wonder most people suffer foot, knee or leg pain at some point in their lives. But what can you do about it? We asked the experts at Foot & Leg Pain Clinics to shed some light on common foot and leg concerns: n The most common concerns include: knee pain, injuries and arthritis; heel, shin or forefoot pain; ankle and achilles concerns. n Many conditions are misdiagnosed and incorrectly treated, so its important to find an experienced musculoskeletal or sports podiatrist to assist. n Bad foot posture can continually pull your body out of alignment, which can contribute to postural aches / pains and undue stress on joints and tissues. n Early symptoms for diabetes, arthritis, nerve and circulatory problems often show themselves initially in the feet. n Traditional treatments such as cortisone, anti-inflammatory medications and joint arthroscopies are now outdated for many conditions such as joint arthritis and injuries, and have been found to delay healing and cause further tissue damage in many cases. n Regenerative medicine is now superseding the pharmaceutical and surgical approach, providing us with natural, safe and effective

medical alternatives and treatments. Natural regenerative therapies such as Prolotherapy, PRP (platelet rich plasma) and stem cell treatments are helping many to heal injuries and assist degeneration. n Foot and leg problems left untreated usually get worse, however most foot & leg concerns can be addressed relatively easily and effectively with appropriate treatment. “By combining the latest regenerative therapies with a sound knowledge of musculoskeletal medicine, biomechanics, and load management strategies to assist stresses through joints and tissues, we can aid or eradicate pain, increase mobility, repair injury and regenerate tissues to assist arthritic concerns – naturally,” say the experts at Foot & Leg Pain Clinics.

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.

Sorrento’s narrow escape secures top spot DIVISION ONE

By Brodie Cowburn SORRENTO have maintained their spot on the top of the MPNFL Division One ladder with a thrilling two-point victory over Edithvale-Aspendale on Saturday. The highly anticipated clash between the league’s first and third placed teams took place at Sorrento’s David Macfarlane Reserve, and it was the home side that came rushing out of the gates with a strong first term. Despite looking the stronger team with a two-goal lead at the first break, it took no time at all for Edithvale-Aspendale to work their way back into the contest, thanks in part to their accuracy in front of goal. The game remained close throughout the rest of the day, but it was Sorrento who had their noses in front at the finish line. Sorrento’s Nick Corp put on a match-winning performance for his side, with his four goals helping Sorrento to a 12.14 (86) to 13.6 (84) win. In the round’s other high profile clash, it was second place taking on fourth place as Frankston YCW hosted Mt Eliza at John Coburn Oval. The normally dominant Frankston YCW were reeling from a run of two straight losses and would have been keen to set the record straight and reclaim top position on the ladder with a big win against a strong opponent. After a tight first quarter, the game looked set to be a high scoring and even contest. Each side kicked five goals apiece as Mt Eliza held a narrow lead at the first break. After quarter time, Mt Eliza overran their highly fancied opponents, establishing a 14 point lead at the half-time break. Frankston YCW didn’t let Mt Eliza run away with the game though and remained within touching distance.

Faced with overcoming a seven-point deficit in the final quarter, they were far from down and out. Despite showing signs of fight, the comeback was not meant to be, as Mt Eliza kicked away to secure a comfortable 19-point win to take them to second place on the ladder. Jordan Moncrieff continued his sterling form this season with a best on ground performance for Mt Eliza, kicking two goals and contributing well around the ground. With their next game being against top of the ladder Sorrento, Frankston YCW find themselves staring down

the barrel of four consecutive losses, an unprecedented run for the champion side. A bad loss in that game could see them slip as low as sixth by the end of next round. There will be plenty of work to be done in order to get back into the form that is expected of them, as Frankston YCW were left to lick their wounds after an 11.7 (73) to 13.14 (92) defeat. The most impressive performance of the weekend came from Bonbeach Recreation Reserve, as Pines travelled to take on Bonbeach. Both clubs had suffered from inconsistent seasons so far, and at the first

break it was the home side who held a two-point lead. After quarter time, a fire was lit under Pines, who were simply unstoppable from that point on. Former North Melbourne forward Aaron Edwards has only been back from a knee reconstruction for a little more than a month, but you wouldn’t have thought it by watching his performance on Saturday. Edwards put on one of the best individual games from any player in the history of the league, kicking an astonishing 13 goals to punish a miserable Bonbeach side. Edwards’ massive haul took him to top of the goal kicking leaderboard, and

if he continues this form he will be hard to overtake. What looked a promising contest at the beginning eventually turned into a one-sided display of domination, as Bonbeach fell to Pines 8.6 (54) to 24.13 (157). Elsewhere, another intriguing clash was taking place between Seaford and Mornington, in a game which would see the loser condemned to last place on the ladder. With both teams playing for pride, it was a tough and even contest, with the lead changing hands at numerous points throughout the day. The lead at each break in play stood at less than a goal. In the final quarter Seaford had plenty of opportunities to put the game to bed, but let themselves down by kicking just one goal and five behinds. Capitalising on Seaford’s inaccuracy, Mornington were able to kick three goals straight in the final term to run out as four-point winners, 9.14 (68) to 11.6 (72). It was Mornington’s Lachlan Gorka who kicked the major to put his side in front with a little more than a minute to play, which was enough to secure his team the victory. The win is Mornington’s second in a row, which takes them off the bottom of the ladder, a position now occupied by their Seaford opponents. In the final game of the weekend, Rosebud’s disappointing season went from bad to worse as they were easily dealt with at home by the Frankston Bombers. Despite Rosebud holding a one-point lead at quarter time, Frankston quickly established a comfortable lead which would prove to be insurmountable. Frankston’s Jarrad Grant proved influential in the win, booting six goals to help his side to an 8.10 (58) to 15.12 (102) win.

Dromana’s undefeated run threatened DIVISION TWO

By Brodie Cowburn DROMANA’S undefeated start to the year nearly came undone in a scrappy contest at home, as they were almost overrun by a plucky Langwarrin side in MPNFL Division Two action on Saturday. Dromana, who pumped their opposition by over 100 points last week, started well to take a 13-point lead into quarter-time but were put on the back foot as Langwarrin struck back to cut the deficit to just one goal at the main break. The third quarter was all Dromana, but despite their dominance, they couldn’t punish Langwarrin on the scoreboard, as they only scored two goals and six behinds for the quarter. With a 22-point lead in hand going into the final term, Dromana looked on top, but they hadn’t landed the killer blow yet. Langwarrin battled bravely to keep themselves alive, and were much the better team in the last quarter, kicking three goals to one to cut down the lead. Unfortunately for Langwarrin though, as the final siren blew all they had won was respect, with first place Dromana holding on to win 9.15 (69) to 7.11 (53) to keep their undefeated streak intact. The most entertaining contest of the round came out of RJ Rowley Reserve, as Rye hosted Somerville in a clash between two teams looking to stabilise shaky starts to their seasons. The two evenly matched teams traded the lead back and forth, but it was Rye who eventually established a comfortable advantage, leading by 28 points at the 10-minute mark of the final quarter. Needing to overcome a five-goal deficit with-

out much time to play, Somerville had their backs to the wall but didn’t give up the fight. The away team got one back through Justin Allsopp, before quickly kicking another three goals to reduce the lead to one behind with mere minutes left to play. With the contest hanging in the balance, it was Somerville’s Timothy McGenniss who proved to be the hero, as he kicked his third for the game to put his team ahead, which would be enough for them to secure a miracle comeback win 12.15 (87) to 13.15 (93). Playing at home, Pearcedale were keen to make amends for their 100-point defeat to Dromana last week as they faced Red Hill on Saturday. Red Hill though, reeling from their one-point loss to Karingal last week, wanted it more than their opponents, and were absolutely ruthless in heaping more misery on a helpless Pearcedale side. Pearcedale could only manage four goals for the entire afternoon and again were put to the sword in another devastating 100-point defeat. Red Hill’s 12 individual goalkickers tell the story of their comprehensive team performance, with Daniel Allsop named best on ground in the 4.10 (34) to 21.13 (139) win away from home. Red Hill will need to carry this momentum through to their next game, as they are set to take on undefeated Dromana at Red Hill Recreation Reserve next Sunday. Elsewhere, Crib Point were not able to follow up on their first win for the year last week, as they fell to an impressive Chelsea side at Chelsea Reserve on Saturday. Chelsea were impressive right from the start

and went into half-time already ahead by 58 points. Curtis Bywater was among the best for Chelsea, as he kicked three majors to take his tally for the year to 32, just one goal shy of the top of the league’s goalkicking ranks. Mykelti Lefau followed up his impressive five-goal haul from last week with another two goals for his side against Chelsea, but it was little help as Crib Point was comprehensively beaten 16.18 (114) to 4.7 (31). It was also business as usual for secondplaced Karingal, who easily accounted for Tyabb at Bunguyan Reserve. A third quarter which saw Karingal score four goals to Tyabb’s zero proved to be the difference, as the match finished Tyabb 7.6 (48) to Karingal 11.13 (79). Matthew Dimkos was the standout performer for Tyabb, but his five goals were not enough to help his team mount any sort of challenge. At Glover Reserve, the result also went as expected as Devon Meadows took on Hastings at home. Hastings, sitting in fourth place and looking for their third win on the trot following a fourpoint victory against Rye last week, looked set for a challenge during the first quarter. The contest was tough and even, and they went into the first break surprisingly behind by two points. After a slow start, Hastings quickly found another gear and looked much the better team throughout the rest of the day. Led by a four-goal performance from in-form Luke Hewitt, Hastings were able to secure a fairly hassle-free victory 9.10 (64) to 16.16 (112).

Sarwari to Langy, Wieck proves a point SOCCER

By Craig MacKenzie LANGWARRIN coach Gus Macleod says Langy fans have much to look forward to after clinching the signature of attacking midfielder Mehdi Sarwari late last week. The 21-year old previously played with Melbourne City, Dandenong Thunder and Oakleigh Cannons. “He’s a huge signing for us, a very exciting player and I think the fans are going to like what they see,” Macleod said. Langwarrin also received clearances for central defender Lloyd Clothier (Malvern City) and goalkeeper Jeremy Sandoval (South Springvale) and they join Queensland strikers Chris Swain and Matt Heath in a strengthened first team squad. Heath is recovering from osteitis pubis but was able to train freely last week. Clothier and Swain made their senior debuts against Melbourne Victory at Epping Stadium on Sunday as Macleod’s men lost 3-0. A deflected Nicholas Sette strike in the 23rd minute caught Langy keeper Robbie Acs stranded and gave the home side a 1-0 half-time lead. Two minutes into the second half Victory went further ahead thanks to Sette and an injury to Clothier forced him to come off as Langy reshuffled its defensive set-up. Birkan Kirdar outpaced the Langy defence to make it 3-0 in the 61st minute and although the visitors enjoyed their best spell of the game for the next 15 minutes shots from Callum Goulding, Johnny Kuol and Liam Baxter were met by superb saves from Victory keeper Majak Mawith. Langy missed an opportunity to go third in NPL2 East and the defeat adds to the importance of next weekend’s home game against Box Hill United as the local club strives to cement its newfound status in the elite competition. Southern United gained its first point of the NPLW season when it came away from Wembley Park on Saturday with a 1-1 draw against Box Hill United thanks to a second-half goal from Bayside United recruit Sarah Wieck. The result ended a run of 13 consecutive losses but with no relegation from the elite women’s competition Southern will continue with its policy of player development. The club expects to move into its new training base at the multi-million dollar Wedge Road sports develop-

ment in Carrum Downs in coming weeks and hopes to use the planned synthetic pitch for matches next year. Southern’s under-12s won 6-1 with goals from Rhiannon Kelleher (4), Emilia Ingles and Savannah Lapenta, the under-14s won 1-0 with Rhys McKenna getting the winner, the under16s lost 3-0 while the under-19s lost 4-0. In State 1 South-East news Mornington continued its winning run with a 1-0 home victory over Eltham Redbacks on Saturday. A clever Sam Scott chip in the 70th minute beat Eltham keeper Santo Dell’Aquila only to strike the underside of the bar but Keegan Ziada was on hand to head home from pointblank range. The result narrows the gap between third-placed Mornington and league pacesetters Manningham and Richmond who both lost last weekend. Frankston Pines and Peninsula Strikers continue to flirt with relegation and next weekend’s showdown between the State League 2 SouthEast rivals may prove to be a seasondefining fixture. Pines went down 4-0 away to league leader Doveton who led 2-0 at halftime with goals from Delfin Mosibe Esara and Josh Frame and second-half

goals from Slavisa Saric and Simon Mur sealed Pines’ fate. Strikers lost 1-0 away to Heatherton United on Saturday night, the winner coming from the penalty spot and converted by Michael Gross in the 25th minute. Strikers blew a host of chances and lacked composure up front. To add to their woes they had a great chance to level from the spot in the second half but former Pines keeper Alfonso Cardinale saved Ryan Thompson’s conversion attempt. Skye United made it seven wins in a row and sits on top of State 3 SouthEast after its 3-1 home win against Middle Park last weekend. However, the win was soured when influential captain Marcus Collier was stretchered off in the second half with what looked to be a serious knee injury and the club is waiting on results to determine its severity. Skye went ahead in the 42nd minute when Chris Driver’s free-kick found Daniel Attard at the near post and the striker controlled and turned on his left before finishing with a neat strike. Attard got his second five minutes into the second half when a skilful Caleb Nicholes’ flick sent Mohamad Elhassan clear and his left-foot cross found Attard who buried the chance.


Nicholes got on the scoresheet when he bundled the ball over the line from another Elhassan delivery in the 70th minute and although Tommy Fardoe pulled one back for the visitors a minute later the damage had been done. Harry McCartney reports that Seaford United lost its relegation battle with Dingley Stars 2-1 at Chadwick Reserve on Saturday. Seaford had started well but in the 11th minute the home team broke forward and a hopeful shot from Alpy Camuzcu managed to float over new Seaford keeper Jimmy Zafiriou to open the scoring. In the 24th minute, a long ball over the top was controlled perfectly by Jeremy Schwellinger who then sidestepped a defender and slotted calmly passed Dingley custodian Nick Abougelis to make it 1-1. The decisive moment in this contest came in the 88th minute after Dylan Waugh had missed an open goal and from the resulting counter attack substitute Kerem Akyayla got behind the defensive line and rounded Zafiriou to finish into an open net and seal the win for the Stars. Seaford has signed Luke Murray from Frankston Pines and hopes to have him available for this weekend’s catch-up match away to Brighton.

An injury-time strike from captain Bosco Abbasmoi kept Sandown Lions on top of the State 4 South ladder but broke the hearts of Baxter fans in a hardfought tussle at Baxter Park on Saturday. Abbasmoi wore the number 4 strip yet the Sandown teamsheet had no number 4 listed and when this was drawn to the attention of referee Aurel Ioana at halftime he went into the away team dressing room to resolve the issue. He had little choice given that Abbasmoi had given Sandown the lead at the interval with a low strike from the right of the area after Baxter failed to clear in the 22nd minute. But Baxter scored twice early in the second half to charge to a 2-1 lead. Stuart McKenzie levelled in the 49th minute with a low shot from inside the area and when Sandown keeper Liam Chitters could only parry Ben Meiklem’s strike from the right in the 53rd minute big Dan Disseldorp had a tap-in. However, Baxter’s lead only lasted two minutes. Former Skye United player Wumjock Jock played a quick ball forward to Sandown striker Roy Ruea who skilfully chested it down then tapped it past advancing Baxter keeper James Foster to make it 2-2. By now Baxter fans were in full voice and the nearby linesman who had doubled as referee of the reserves match was given a variety of options on how to better use 180 minutes of his life. Then just when it seemed that the home team would hang on for a meritorious point Abbasmoi struck again to settle the matter. Somerville Eagles regained their winning touch when downing Drouin Dragons 4-2 in West Gippsland on Saturday and player-coach Dave Greening now has his side one point off league leader Old Mentonians. Somerville already has five more points than it accrued during the entire 2017 season as it zeroes in on promotion from State 5 South. Strikes from Greening (2), Louis Griffiths and an Ash Scholes header proved decisive. Next weekend is a State League catchup round and there are two local NPL games and two State League games: SATURDAY 3pm: Langwarrin v Box Hill Utd (Lawton Park), Peninsula Strikers v Frankston Pines (Centenary Park), Brighton v Seaford Utd (Dendy Park). SUNDAY 3.15pm: Southern Utd v Heidelberg Utd (Monterey Reserve, U12s 9am, U14s 10.15am, U16s 11.40am, U19s 1.15pm).

Kaoullas triumphs in state title tilt By Ben Triandafillou MORNINGTON Peninsula boxer Adam “Golden Greek” Kaoullas has claimed the Victorian State Welterweight title in emphatic fashion defeating Dillon Bargero at the Malvern Town Hall on Saturday 19 May. Kaoullas previously faced Bargero in November last year, where Bargero didn’t give in without putting up a fight, and it was no different the second time around. Bargero pulled himself off the canvas in both the second and third rounds as Kaoullas tried to make the ring his own. After going the entire eight rounds, Kaoullas was eventually named victor by unanimous decision and carded winning rounds in seven of the eight contested. Kaoullas praised the way Bargero kept lifting himself back up and continually putting up a fight. “He was moving quite badly but he just stayed in there,” he said. “It’s a credit to him. He got off the canvas and just kept going.” In a packed arena, Kaoullas said “all I could see when I looked up was gold” as more than 80 fans donned his gear in support of the “Golden Greek”. Kaoullas said the crowd’s support was massive and helped push him to the “next level”. “No matter how hard you train, if you don’t control your nerves it can tire you out,” he said. “Through the fight, I actually got quite tired, but that roar from the crowd helped me push thought it and get the win.” On the way out of the ring, Kaoullas was congratulated by another Australian boxer being none other than the multiple world champion, Danny Green. “It was a huge compliment to be congratulated by someone who has achieved so much,” Kaoullas said. Kaoullas is now hoping to have a national title of his own in the near future but said in the meantime he would defend his new state title and eventually build-up to his next goal.

Past champs set bar high PAST Peninsula Surfriders Club champions Calum Nicholson and Mikey Barber set the performance bars high at the Peninsula Surfriders second aggregate competition on Saturday 26 May. A breaching Southern Wright whale signified the start of the competition which returned to Gunnamatta’s first carpark, as Cal Nicolson took a narrow lead over his competitors early in the senior men’s division. His competitors weren’t able to reel him in, but the back-to-back heats took their toll on Nicholson in the Open final as he settled for fourth. An energised Mikey Barber took out first place, while Sean McDevitt and Lachy McDonald filled second and third placings, respectively. Adam Morris, the 2017 club champion, also

struck it hot early-on as he claimed the days highest heat total of 17 including 10 points out of a possible 20 in the opening round. Unfortunately for Morris, he wasn’t able to repeat the performance later in the day and was eliminated in the quarter-finals. The growing Women’s, Junior Girls and Cadet Boys divisions all relished the user-friendly waves and stand-out performances from Hannah Trigger, Brooke Fischer and Will Watson saw them take the respective victories. The club now enters its winter-break with a recommencement in early October. PSC Supergroms will also restart in October. Further details can be found at online.

Gulls secure second spot, Steelers end losing streak BASKETBALL

THE Chelsea Gulls have secured their second spot on the ladder with a 17-point victory over third-placed Keysborough Cougars in round 10 of the Big V. The Gulls’ “big three” players, Corey Standerfer, Mitchell Riggs (19 points) and Matt Brasser (15 points) pushed hard to bring up the sides fourth straight victory (91-77) as they pass the half-way point of the season. The star import Standerfer made a huge difference in the clash as he dropped 35 points, 15 rebounds, six assists and three blocks throughout the game. Kieran Mcqueen also hit the board as he bought up his 150th match with a last-second jump shot on the buzzer. It was a mixed emotions match for Mcqueen as his father passed away earlier in the week. Chelsea Gulls’ head coach Peter Caspersz said it was great to see the side continue their winning streak and an even better feeling to see Mcqueen finish the match on a high. “It was nice to get the win for him and to help him through this time,” he said. “Everybody’s energy and input in the match was massive and, without being too confident, hopefully we can keep it going next week.” Western Port Steelers didn’t have the same luck in their matches on the weekend against Melbourne University and the Keysborough Cougars as they suffered a double blow and moved down to fifth on the ladder. The Steelers suffered an upset

loss to the Black Angels (66-74) at home, even though Dylan Travis put in another solid performance with 29 points. They folded again on the Sunday to the Keysborough Cougars (93-81) as they were handed a 12-point loss. In the Women’s state championship division, the Southern Peninsula Sharks came back hard after trailing by as much as 17 points at one stage against the Hume City Broncos. But, the Broncos just managed to withstand the heat and claimed a twopoint victory (74-72) at home. Jaz Shelley (27 points) and Peyton Little (20 points) did as much as they could for the away team. In a change of fortune, the women’s Western Port Steelers claimed their first win for the season after 10-straight losses in division one. The Steelers grasped their opportunity against 10th placed Warrandyte Venom and didn’t let go. The first three quarters were a tussle for the lead but in desperate need for their first win, the Steelers fought hard and finished off with a 23 to 15 final quarter. The Steelers walked away with a three-point victory over the Venom (58-61). Chelsea Gulls, who are still suffering from injuries, faced Hawthorn Magic on the Saturday night and suffered their third straight loss (4769) in the women’s division one. The Magic took the lead from the very start and although putting up a challenge in the third, the Gulls couldn’t make up any ground. The Gulls still hold onto their fifth placing but will face the league leaders Casey Cava-

liers in round 11. In the men’s division two, the Southern Peninsula Saints thrived with the return of Colin Voss to the line-up as they once again sat at the winners table. The Sharks came back with vengeance after suffering a 53-point blowout to the Craigieburn Eagles the week prior, and set up a 15-point victory over the Wallan Panthers (81-66). The Panthers put the pressure on the home side in the opening quarter and snuck away with a three-point lead out of the first break, but by the time the main break came around the Panthers were behind and never recovered. The Sharks pushed their lead out to 21 points in the third but the Panthers bought it back a touch by the end of the game. The Sharks then tried to go on with the job on the Sunday against the Camberwell Dragons but they fell just short as the Dragons snuck away with a four-point win (82-78). Voss was intently covered by the Dragons to try and stop him from repeating Saturday night’s effort which left the Sharks’ Corey Bond open to have a field day as he racked up 25 points for the side. In the women’s division two, the Mornington Breakers had an 18-point loss to the Wallan Panthers, despite outscoring their opponents 20-14 in the final quarter. A second-quarter freeze by the Breakers was enough to give the Panthers the breathing space they needed to collect a win on the road. For the Breakers, Erin Ludwick collected 15 points to lead all on the night, as Fiona Darnell amassed 13 points and 14 boards for a solid double.

Waves score back-to-back wins NETBALL

PENINSULA Waves have bought up their third victory for the VNL Championship season in round six against Boroondara Express on Wednesday 30 May. The championship and division one sides walked away with six and seven goal victories respectively, and made it back-to-back victories after taking out the bayside clash the week prior against the Southern Saints. Peninsula Waves championship coach Jess Whitfort said it was “fantastic to put together two in a row” and named vice-captain, Adrienne Harris, as a stand-out player from the championship match. “She really set an example from the start to the finish,” she said. “She always presented herself as an option and did a mountain of work throughout the game.” The Waves’ under-19s side (59-44) had a 15-goal loss to Boroondara and after a slow start; Whitfort said “it was just too late to comeback”. The Southern Saints weren’t as fortunate in their round six matches as they suffered defeats in all three of their divisions to reigning premiers, North East Blaze. The Southern Saints championship side suffered the biggest blow with a 29-goal defeat (33-62) while the division one (51-69) and under-19s sides (46-57) went down by 18 and 11 goals, respectively. The Southern Saints and Peninsula Waves sides will have a quick back-up for round seven which kicks off on Sunday 3 June. The Southern Saints faced the Geelong Cougars, while the Waves faced the City West Falcons.
