Candidates at ‘town hall’
ABOUT 400 interested voters attended last Wednesday’s “town hall” meeting at the New Peninsula Church, Mount Martha. Hundreds more listened and watched live broadcasts of the Peninsula Voice-hosted forum on RPP FM. This week’s final pre-Saturday 21 May federal election coverage is on Pages 8 to 11. Picture: Yanni
Car-sleepers rise amid housing crisis Liz Bell firstname.lastname@example.org FAMILIES are sleeping in their cars in petrol stations and other public car parks around the Mornington Peninsula, as housing affordability and the rental crisis worsens. At the all-night BP stations on Peninsula Link in Baxter, every night at least two cars – sometimes more – pull up in the anonymity of nightfall and park for the night. The wife of a truckie who sees the despair and dilemma of the car sleep-
ers and contacted The News to say it was heartbreaking and more should be done. At Rosebud and Rye foreshores rough sleepers and people in cars have access to some all-night toilets and wash rooms. The drivers find a parking space far enough away to give the illusion of privacy, but close enough to access amenities and provide some semblance of cleanliness and order. Some curl up on their own with a sleeping bag or clothes for blankets, while others fuss around their children
to settle them in for the night. It is a routine many are now used to, since rents have soared, and housing investors target the peninsula. As revealed this year by market researched CoreLogic, seven of the state’s top eight postcodes for rental increases between January 2020 and 2022 are on peninsula. In June 2021, the peninsula’s median house price was $1.12 million, and the median rent was $520 a week - higher than greater Melbourne. In some areas prices continue to soar. Rye, Sorrento, Dromana and Mc-
Crae have all recorded an annual growth of least 20 per cent, Council to Homeless Persons CEO Jenny Smith says homelessness across the peninsula is getting worse. “We know at least half of peninsula renters are in financial stress, amid surging rents and an undersupply of social housing,” she said. There are nearly 400 households in the region supported by the From Homeless to a Home program, but the recent state budget saw its allocation slashed 78 per cent. The state government has an-
nounced an affordable housing rental scheme to address the gap in housing affordability and supply for low to moderate income households experiencing rental stress. As part of the $5.3 billion Big Housing Build, Homes Victoria’s rental scheme will provide an extra 2400 affordable rental homes in regional Victoria. Under the program, fixedterm rental agreements will be offered for a minimum three years. But the announcements are cold comfort for rough sleepers, or those on waiting lists. Continued Page 12

Tipping point: Balnarring Primary School teacher Kate Large with student Anna Page celebrate the school’s success at preventing 798 pairs of shoes being taken to the tip. Picture: Supplied
Prize for saving soles from landfill BALNARRING Primary School has collected a staggering 798 pairs of shoes for recycling to become the national prize winner in the TreadLightly sustainability awards. Students at the school collected the shoes and raised awareness by giving a short presentation on TreadLightly to each class to encourage students, parents, teachers and the wider community to get behind the cause. Their efforts have won $8600 in prizes and school resources. Teacher Kate Prestney said the
school was dedicated to sustainability and “we know kids' feet grow so quickly”. “This was a perfect opportunity for our school to get onboard with an initiative to divert waste from landfill,” Prestney said. “Sustainability is an integral part of our curriculum and is embedded in everything that we do. The students are so passionate and are always looking for ways to care for our environment.” Across Australia, school students collected more than five tonnes of
shoes to divert them from landfill. Balnarring Primary is among the top eight schools in the 2022 National School Recycling Drive, which saw almost 10,000 pairs of shoes recycled. Over 100 schools participated in the initiative run by TreadLightly over one week (21-27 March). Open to all child care centres, primary and secondary schools across Australia – the winning schools will receive prizes comprising of shoe vouchers, sporting equipment and recycled gym mats.

Happy finish to greyhound’s run
Prom catch threat to bays’ whiting FISHING trawlers licensed by the federal government are threatening the numbers of King George whiting in Port Phillip and Western Port bays, according to the Futurefish Foundation. The foundation’s chairman Michael Buxton says the trawlers’ catch breeding-sized whiting off Wilsons Promontory could lead to fewer fish available to recreational fishers in the bays and 18 commercial fishers at Corner Inlet. Buxton says he twice wrote to Flinders MP Greg Hunt who passed on his concerns to federal Fisheries Minister Jonathon Duniam “who replied he was not prepared to change anything”. Buxton says he has also expressed his concerns to the Liberal Party’s candidate for Hunt’s seat, Zoe McKenzie. “Our concerns are falling on deaf ears at Commonwealth level,” Buxton said. “Even the Victorian fisheries minister has raised concerns with her counterpart in Canberra and is receiving the same inaction we are.” He said the Victorian catch was permitted despite King George whiting being off the menu for Commonwealth trawlers in South Australia and Tasmania. The Futurefish Foundation describes itself as a “fearless watchdog” for recreational fishers and counts bans of commercial netting in Port Phillip and Western Port among its victories. It backs the installation of artificial reefs, including to be placed within weeks on the seabed near Point

Nepean(“Artificial reef stirs environmental anger” The News 7/3/22). Buxton said little was known about where King George whiting breed in Victoria “other than that small larvae drift into our bays from the ocean and then settle in seagrass”. The juvenile whiting lived in Port Phillip until they were about four years old before heading into the ocean. “Victorian fisheries scientists rarely find a breeding whiting in the bay, but they don’t know exactly where they go to breed,” he said. “That is why we are concerned that the Commonwealth trawlers are targeting the breeders off Wilsons Promontory. “They take tonnes of large breeding fish in a very short period once a year when they are easily targeted as they aggregate and get ready to spawn.” Buxton said he wanted Hunt and McKenzie to commit to stopping the targeting of the breeders “but, so far, they are not doing anything”. “The Liberal federal government must act now or they will have King George whiting blood on their hands if the small fish stop coming into our bays and the fishing for whiting becomes depleted,” he said. “Hunt and McKenzie should be concerned as it will affect many thousands of their constituents as well as the whole of Victoria’s recreational anglers and seafood consumers”. McKenzie did not respond when asked to comment. Keith Platt
MOUNT Eliza illustrator Karen Erasmus’s new children’s picture book brings to life the heart-warming and true story of runaway greyhound, Albert. In her second illustration project with Gippsland author Kylie Miller, Erasmus has created colourful and engaging images of Albert’s chaotic adventures as the anxious, adopted greyhound overcomes his fear of cats to find a safe home, a warm bed, and a family of his own. The book, Albert, The Greyhound Who Loves to Run is about a twoyear-old greyhound who jumped the fence at his Gippsland lakes home after being spooked by the family cat a day after his adoption. The story of his escape and nine weeks on the run featured in the national media in 2018 and captured the interest of animal lovers around the world as the author and her family worked to bring him home. Miller says the account is fictionalised but includes real-life characters, including greyhound Teddy, Cleo the cat, and Albert’s great love and saviour, Rhonda. It includes themes of love, family, patience, persistence, friendship, and belonging. She says as well as giving children an entertaining and educational picture book, she hopes the book encourages people to consider the value of adopting greyhounds, and pets more broadly. Miller and her husband have since
ILLUSTRATOR Karen Erasmus, pictured with her dog Doug, did not have to look far for inspiration for drawing “runaway” greyhound Albert. Picture: Supplied adopted two more greyhounds, as have about 3000 other Victorians in the past year. Erasmus has been illustrating professionally since 2012, creating around 20 children’s picture books and material for the education sector, and designing patterns for products.
The illustrator says working and living on the Mornington Peninsula means she is never lost for inspiration. Albert, The Greyhound Who Loved to Run is available at all good bookshops or online at major book retailers.
ZOE MCKENZIE – SOMEONE WHO GETS RESULTS I have a record of getting things done nationally, at the State level and here on the Peninsula. I have been involved locally with many community organisations working to address the disadvantage we suffer by being part of ‘metro Melbourne’ as opposed to ‘regional’. Running my own small business, I know the unique challenges facing small and family enterprises which are the lifeblood of our local economy. We need less tax, less red tape, and more help for those trying to build opportunities for others.
I have a plan for a world-class tourism and hospitality training hub on the Peninsula and I will work with the local community towards a new Technical College to encourage young people into trades. I will protect our natural environment so that our kids, and your kids, can live and love it like we do. My partner Rod and I are scuba divers, and I want to protect our beaches, the Green Wedge and Arthurs Seat. I want to make sure that the Mornington Peninsula remains one of the best places to live, raise a family, or run a small business.

Experts fancy strait flight for parrots
THE first of 36 orange-bellied parrots bred in captivity have been released into the wild at Western Port and Lake Connewarre on the Bellarine Peninsula. The endangered birds are expected to join a 100-strong flock of previously released parrots. Experts predict this autumn will see a flock of about 140 orange-bellied parrots migrate to Victoria from Tasmania, the largest number in 15 years. The parrots are reported to have had a successful breeding season in the wild and other captive-bred birds were released in spring and late summer. The birds have gone from being at imminent risk of extinction, with only 50 birds left in the wild in 2017, to a 15-year high following a state government-supported trial involving Zoos Victoria, the federal government's National Landcare Program and Moonlit Sanctuary, Pearcedale.
Reconciliation walk THE Hastings-based Willum Warrain annual Mornington Peninsula Reconciliation Walk will start at 11am Sunday 29 May. Participants are being urged to gather near Pelican Park, 2 Marine Parade, Hastings from 10.30am. There is also parking available at Willum Warrain in Pound Road, Hastings from where a shuttle bus will operate from 10am. The 25-minute Be Brave, Make a Change walk from the foreshore to Willum Warrain will be followed by a Welcome to Country from the Bunurong Land Council and performances by Ganga Girl and the Mullum Mullum Aboriginal choir. A barbecue lunch will be served at the free event. Willum Warrain community development officer Nadia Douglas said the 2019 walk drew about 1000 people but was cancelled for the past two years because of COVID-19.

Budget payout for MP’s decade of lobbying Keith Platt firstname.lastname@example.org IT may have taken 10 years of lobbying, but Mornington MP David Morris is pleased the state budget included a commitment to rebuild Mornington Special Development School. “In a welcome departure from its usual habit of ignoring the Mornington electorate in the state budget, the Victorian government has finally funded two desperately needed local projects,” Morris said. He said the government had committed to spending “at least $6.769 million” but warned the project was no expected to be completed until December 2025. “Students, parents and teachers shouldn’t be expecting immediate action as only a fraction of the money allocated to the program will be spent in the next financial year,” he said. “Despite the likely delay I am delighted the government has finally seen sense. For too long this school has had to make do with sub-standard temporary accommodation, and no guarantee that the school would even remain on the current site.” The May budget will be the last one for Morris to comment on as Mornington MP as he has been forced to retire from parliament after the Liberal party chose Chris Crewther as its candidate in the November election. First elected in 2006, Morris was re-elected at the following three elections. Crewther served one term for the Liberals in the federal seat of Dunkley but was defeated in 2019 by Labor’s Peta Murphy. Morris said this year’s budget also included an undisclosed amount for “critical works” to the
Fisherman’s Jetty near Mornington pier which had been “temporarily closed” since 2020. “… Whether there will be enough money to actually re-open the jetty, or even when the works will be undertaken, remains uncertain. In spite of these misgivings, I am pleased the government has finally responded to my repeated calls for action,” he said. Morris said the “small wins” were overdue, but outstanding issues included: Action to fix congestion on Bungower and Mornington-Tyabb roads at Mornington. Safety works at the intersections of Forest Drive and Uralla Road with Nepean Highway, Mount Martha. “Investment” in Mornington Park Primary School and Mount Eliza Secondary College. Money to back Mornington Peninsula Shire’s commitment to the Peninsula Trail between Moorooduc and Mornington. “This year’s state budget was pretty much what we’ve come to expect in the Mornington electorate – not a whole lot,” Morris said. At the other end of the peninsula Labor Nepean MP Chris Brayne was “pleased that this budget makes a substantial investment into so many corners of my electorate”. “This budget follows previous work done over my time in this role that has seen our schools getting rebuilt and the most significant upgrade to our public transport network in decades.” As well as a $1.5m for Flinders pier, he said money was also allocated to upgrading Dromana Specialist College; repairing and restoring two gun emplacements at Fort Nepean; finishing the upgrade of Rye pier; repairing outbuildings at Cape Schanck lighthouse; and Sorrento Surf Life Saving Club. AN undisclosed amount of money has been set aside for the Fisherman’s Jetty at Mornington, but Mornington MP David Morris hopes it will be enough to fix the jetty which was closed in 2020 and reopen it to the public.

Shire accused of being off track with pledges Keith Platt email@example.com MORNINGTON Peninsula Shire Council’s online federal election candidates’ “pledge tracker” was made by a “councillor consultative group” consisting of five councillors and several council officers. Two weeks ago, the tracker showed seven promises made by Liberal Party candidate for Flinders Zoe McKenzie and none for Labor, which had made an election promise (“Shire following the money” I 10/5/22). The tracker is supposed to be listing campaign promises and pledges by candidates in Flinders and Dunkley electorates, but only mentions Liberal and Labor candidates. Flinders has 10 candidates and Dunkley nine. Under the heading “Flinders electorate election pledge tracker” and in much smaller type, is the line: “In the lead up to the federal election, we are keeping track of all candidates’ election pledges for the Mornington Peninsula.” The internal council group which decided to track candidates’ election promises comprises the mayor Anthony Marsh, deputy mayor Lisa Dixon, and Crs Antonella Celi, David Gill and Steve Holland. Marg D’Arcy, campaign manager for Labor candidate Surbhi Snowball, said it seemed “blatantly unfair” that the shire was only listing pledges made by the Liberal and Labor candidates. “This exercise is misleading and unfair to other candidates by only focusing on pledges and not talking about policies and the impact they may have on the people on the peninsula,” D’Arcy said.
“It ignores policies of the candidates, many of which will be of considerable benefit to the electorate.” D’Arcy said an email from the shire on 27 April asked for Labor’s pledges “but it didn’t say they would be put on the council website”. The date of the email from the shire coincided with an announcement by McKenzie and fellow Liberal Sharn Coombes, who is standing for Dunkley, of $5 million for a section of the Peninsula Trail. The mayor Cr Anthony Marsh and deputy mayor Lisa Dixon posed for photos with the two candidates next to a trail sign (“Candidates go vote-shopping with Cash” The News 3/5/22). D’Arcy said listing only monetary pledges ignored policies for climate change, housing shortages, aged care and child care. She said retiring Flinders MP Greg Hunt had previously pledged $75 million for an overpass at Jetty Road, Rosebud without first consulting the state government. “I am reminded of the over $1 million which Greg Hunt provided to spend on sand replenishment in Mount Martha without any discussion or thinking about the impact of climate change and how we work to mitigate the effects of climate change,” she said. “I am very disappointed that the shire would indulge in such a deliberately misleading and shallow approach to the policies and programs that are being put before the Australian people at this election.” Christine de Kock, campaign manager for Liberal Democrat candidate Chrysten Abraham, said she had not received any notification from the shire about the pledge tracker. “The democratic process gets a bit
skewed if you’re not one of the major parties with friends or money. I wonder how council’s good governance procedures allows the tracker on their website during an election? If you go to a federal government site they have a disclaimer,” she said. “I’m sure Chrysten would be available for a photo with the mayor.” Cr Marsh told The News that he had attended an announcement by Labor’s Dunkley candidate, sitting MP Peta Murphy, of money to upgrade the Emil Madsen Reserve, Mount Eliza. He said the tracker was created “to track pledges made by candidates funding local community projects and initiatives”. “Additionally, we stated that we would not publish or endorse national party policies as these are covered hourly in the mainstream media,” Marsh said. He said the tracker “clearly shows” Murphy had pledged more than 30 times the amount of money for Mount Eliza than that pledged by Snowball for the rest of the peninsula. “Perhaps Ms D’Arcy’s concern is that we’ve highlighted the difference in party funding priorities across the divisions?” Marsh said the “reality is that only the two major parties are likely to form government. We will publish pledges received by any candidate, but have only received pledges from the Liberal and Labor candidates across the two divisions”. It was “entirely appropriate to attend an announcement of funding for a council-led project [such as the Peninsula Trail]”. “It is highly unlikely that a candidate would be able to deliver funding if their party did not form government, so we appreciate that these pledges have removed the double dependency of party and candidate,” he said.

Independents climb as Liberals slide THE past three federal elections have seen the Liberal Party vote in the Flinders electorate drop from a high of 59.14% in 2013 to 55.64% in 2019. Each election was won for the Liberals by Greg Hunt, who had held the seat since 2001, but is now retiring. The same three elections have seen the proportion of the vote for independent candidates jump from less than 1% to nearly 16%, a figure that could be eclipsed this year with the greater emphasis being placed on independents across Australia. The 2013 election saw 10 candidates contest the seat, with Hunt increasing his winning margin by 2.67% (after distribution of preferences). His Labor opponent Josh Sinclair achieved 40.86% of the vote and the one independent candidate receive just 0.75%. In 2016, there were six candidates, including one independent with 3.06% of the vote. Hunt’s winning margin was chipped back 4.04% to 57.77% by Labor’s Carolyn Gleixner, 42.23%. Three years ago, there were nine candidates, including disaffected former Liberal MP, Julia Banks. Banks and

FLINDERS CANDIDATES HAVE THEIR SAY Alex van der End United Australia Party
During this campaign I have been inundated with hundreds of emails from people seeking my help. There are stories of people who have lost their livelihoods because they refused to take an experimental vaccine that doesn’t work. Health professionals who are not allowed to go back to work in Victoria unjabbed, while in other states they are able to work with no problems. There is no health crisis in Victoria, just an evil oppressive state government ignoring basic human rights and a federal government that allows them to get away with it. I’ve had people tell me about the mortgage stress that they face if either of the major parties win this election. With one increase already and more to come, many will be forced out of their homes. There are 900 people sleeping rough on the Mornington Peninsula, and this will only get worse. The reckless government overspending will simply continue to push up the cost of living and put additional pressure on interest rates. The United Australia Party has a plan that will keep home loan interest rates at 3 per cent for the next five years and repay the national debt through the 15 per cent export tax on iron ore. This ensures our debt paid off the debt in 20 years without the need to tax Australians. When elected, I will ensure my support for the Victorian Maritime Centre at Crib point; the extension of the Mornington Peninsula Freeway; protecting wildlife and beaches; protecting women’s sport; providing support for more mental health and aged care funding; and helping Lyme’s disease suffers. I come to this role not as someone who knows how to help people and get things done. The major parties have failed and taken us for granted.
Chrysten Abraham Liberal Democratic Party
I WAS born in the Eastern suburbs of Melbourne, and I have lived on the Peninsula for the better part of six years. Talking to my community, I know there is a need for affordable housing and the rising cost of living is keeping young people out of the market. Small businesses need cuts to red tape to be able to flourish. We need to invest in public transport on the Peninsula. My vision is for a peninsula where small businesses thrive, the community works together on the issues faced and better telecommunications for Western Port! The Liberal Democratic Party was formed because its members didn’t believe the Liberals held true libertarian values - small government, less taxes and a free market. LibDems represents small business owners, the worker, stay at home parents and people that may need government assistance. Too much of our money goes to the government, we pay taxes on our wages, goods and services. The government continues to skim a little off the top every day, yet we are still on track for nearly $1 trillion dollars of debt. We are a sensible and logical party that is the genuine alternative to the major parties, we respect the liberties of people. We propose to cut frivolous spending, not to areas like aged care or government payments or anything that matters to the people, but instead we cut fat government departments. Anyone that has worked for government knows there is excessive spending. The tax free threshold has been $18,000 for a long time and we have a policy to increase the tax free threshold to $40,000 to compensate for the increase in cost of living with a flat 20 per cent tax after the tax free threshold modelled after the Laffer Curve.
Zoe McKenzie Liberal Party
OVER the years, I have been engaged across our community – working with the Committee for the Mornington Peninsula, the Mornington Peninsula Foundation, and many local sporting and social clubs. I have worked in business – as an employment lawyer, a company director building our nation’s key infrastructure, and in small business – encouraging investment in Australia and building our exports, such as wine into India and establishing Moderna in Victoria. I gave up that career to fight for the opportunity to represent Flinders in our federal parliament. And since January I have met thousands of our fellow residents. The key issues have been simple: Access to workers to sustain our health and aged care services, and our tourism, hospitality, and agriculture industries. I have made commitments to our community to address critical skill shortages and keep young people on the peninsula for life. Quality infrastructure, so lacking as a result of the failure of the Andrews Labor Government to invest, when $300 million from federal government to fund roads and rail improvements, and higher education sits unused. The absurd insistence that we are “metro Melbourne” – when our way of living, from our reliance on gas tanks, septic systems, and diesel generators would suggest otherwise – we need access to a greater range of support, so readily offered across Port Phillip. And finally, protecting our natural environment and what makes it such a special place to be: our coasts, our walking tracks, our beautiful hills, Flinders pier, Arthurs Seat, and the beauty of our waters as a place for fishing, snorkelling, swimming and diving. I have a set of commitments to maintain our high quality of living and address the cost of living and running a small business, amounting to over $25 million in investments over the next three years.
Jefferson Earl Australian Federation Party
FLINDERS is one of the most beautiful electorates in the country. The peninsula inspires me from its wild back beaches and sandy dunes, calm serenity of the front beach to the grape covered hills of the wine region. This gem must be protected. My decision to run as a candidate was not easy, politics for me has always seemed so dirty and unattractive. But, after watching the pain here in Victoria under Scomo, Greg Hunt and Dan Andrews, I put my ambitions on hold to help Flinders and Australia rise from this dire situation. With more than 20 years’ experience as a successful entrepreneur, I am able to think beyond the average box thinking politician. Voting for me is not a vote for a politician it is a vote for real change. I will invest into businesses and start-ups directly, providing grants assessed by a panel of experts. Grants of $20,000 for businesses in Flinders for each full time job they create; 20 per cent of the grant paid day one and the rest if benchmarks are met. Young people can start their own business. I will also fix the shocking mobile phone reception down here before the end of 2023. Only entrepreneurs like me can ignite Australia’s engines of manufacturing again. Our nation’s defence must be secured by manufacturing most of our defence assets here. In time of war, we should not rely on ally supplies getting through. This will create hundreds of thousands of jobs. With 30 per cent of our nation’s energy being clean, I have a manufacturing clean energy plan to create thousands of jobs and export energy products while attaining a clean energy economy before 2030. This is not a pipe dream we can do this, and we can thrive while we do.

FLINDERS CANDIDATES HAVE THEIR SAY Colin Lane The Greens
I’M a long time local, having lived either on the Mornington Peninsula or its northern fringe just about all my life. I love it. Deeply. There’s no place like it. My family are here, my friends are here. It’s home. I work as a civil celebrant, so I get to help families celebrate the best of times and guide them through the saddest of times. I also work part-time for a small not-forprofit. Married with four kids, aged 17 to 24, who are racking up HECS debts and desperately trying to save money for a deposit on a house that they’re rapidly losing hope that they’ll ever be able to afford. They can’t understand why governments won’t take more urgent action on climate change and are experiencing all the ups and downs of the casual labour market while trying to get a further education. In Flinders, because we are facing pressure like never before on our natural environment and our green wedge and all of our beautiful ecological assets here on the peninsula. We are suffering from the great escape from Melbourne, without anywhere near the infrastructure to cope with the influx of people wanting to live here with us. Government has continually let us down. No integrity left, accepting big corporation donations and returning the favour, creating economic inequality and injustice, neglecting things liked aged care. With a strong Green voice, we can exert even more pressure to make change. Lower House and, importantly, Upper House. The more numbers the Greens have in Canberra, the more pressure we can exert, bring about some real change and get better outcomes for all of us and our precious planet. With my heart for the peninsula, I will represent the people, with passion, and determination, and honesty.
Sarah Russell Independent
I GREW up in a Liberalvoting household, the only girl with four older brothers. It was a household full of strong opinions. By the age of 13, I found myself disagreeing with my father’s politics. But, instead of causing conflict, these disagreements prepared me well for politics. I learnt how to disagree respectfully. I don’t dismiss people with different views. I talk with them to understand where they are coming from. I also learnt how to negotiate. I despair about the state of politics where Liberal and Labor politicians spend so much time fighting each other. We need a vision for our country’s future. The loss of trust in government also really concerns me. People feel vested interests are running the country because there’s no transparency or accountability - the key to restoring trust in government and giving hope to citizens. I began my career as a nurse and then did a doctorate in public health. More than 20 years ago, I set up a small business, specialising in public health research. My work involves listening to and talking with people about health – women’s health, mental health, substance abuse and aged care. All my work comes through word of mouth. My research, advocacy and persistence over the past 30 years have significantly improved people’s lives. I have also spent nearly 10 years advocating for the dignity and rights of older people. I am an independent expert on both residential and home care. Thanks to my voluntary work, aged care is finally an election issue. So much more needs to be done. Aged care needs an effective advocate in parliament. Growing up, I spent most weekends and school holidays at Mount Martha. For the past three years, I have lived permanently on the block my grandfather purchased in 1935.

Surbhi Snowball Australian Labor Party
I AM a proud and passionate local who is looking forward to representing the people of the electorate of Flinders. I came from Mauritius more than 20 years ago to study and graduated from Monash University in banking and finance. With my husband and our two children I moved to Hastings five years ago. We are lucky to call it home. My eldest is nearly an adult, my baby has just started school. They have played local sport and learnt to swim at Pelican Park. During COVID we walked Hastings. My community is a big part of my life – knowing local shopkeepers by name, the food swap and permaculture groups, the church play group. I taught yoga and cooking classes and I cooked for the church. I’m fiercely proud of being Australian. Here I have rights and privileges: guaranteed minimum wages, paid maternity leave, free education and health care, the right to be treated with equity and fairness, strong laws to protect our natural environment. All of those things and more are a direct result of Labor government policies. After years of self-serving, incompetent and arrogant Coalition governments, it is time to bring real leadership back to Canberra. You have to care about the people who elected you by putting families first - understanding the importance of Medicare, child care and aged care; by working with state, territory and local governments to develop more public, community, and affordable housing; by acting to protect the precious environment we have in this country and on the Mornington Peninsula; by taking urgent action on the most important crisis facing us all – climate change. The greatest prosperity our nation can have is for its people to be healthy, safe and happy. That is what I want for my community.
Despi O’Connor Independent
I AM a firm believer in building a democracy that involves everyone, not just political insiders and partyline members. I also believe that democracy is at its best when it involves people of all backgrounds, fighting for the communities that they live and work in. If elected, I would not only bring communitydriven solutions for Integrity, climate action and equality to Flinders – I would take Flinders to Canberra with me. These issues, along with community consultation, housing, mental health, aged care and transport are all critical to our people – and ones that I would work hard to solve. I will be a Flinders representative in Canberra – not a party representative in Flinders. This election has become a choice of what kind of representation we want for our community. On one hand, the people of Flinders can choose to be represented by an everyday community member who knows the people’s issues, lives their concerns and is held accountable by the people that vote for her. On the other, Flinders can again choose to elect a party candidate who votes in the interests of their party, not in the interests of their community. We have had representation for many decades that have chosen party over community, corruption over transparency, and stagnation over the economic opportunities of a renewable economy. Everyday people – including nurses, teachers and emergency service workers – know what issues are important to the people in our communities. They are the very people who are best equipped to represent our people in Canberra. That’s the kind of representation that I’m fighting for.

‘Town hall’ meets the candidates
ZOE McKenzie, top left, listens while Senator James Paterson speaks at Portsea Sorrento RSL. Picture: Facebook
Security takes precedence LIBERAL Party candidate for Flinders Zoe McKenzie says she had an “exceptional evening” discussing “Australia’s national security and intelligence landscape” at the same time that 400 people gathered in Mount Martha expecting to hear from all 10 candidates. McKenzie told organisers during the morning before that evening’s town hall meeting that she would not be attending as Senator James Paterson was available to attend a meeting at Portsea Sorrento RSL. Animal Justice Party candidate Pamela Engelander was also absent from the meeting on Wednesday 11 May organised by the non-political community group Peninsula Voice and radio station RPP FM. The News sought comment from McKenzie but as has become normal during this election campaign, was in-
stead offered quotes from an unnamed spokesperson or “Zoe McKenzie campaign”. The closest to a direct comment from McKenzie was posted on her Facebook: “Exceptional evening to discuss Australia’s national security and intelligence landscape, AUKUS, and recent events in Europe and the Asia-Pacific, together with chair of the Parliamentary Joint Committee on Intelligence and Security, Senator James Paterson. “Thank you to the local RSLs, men’s shed and many members of southern Mornington Peninsula community for joining us, as well as Sam Groth and Susan Bissinger.” Groth is the Liberal Party candidate for the state seat of Nepean and Bissinger a Mornington Peninsula Shire councillor. Keith Platt
AN audience of about 400 last Wednesday heard the policies of eight of the 10 candidates standing for the seat of Flinders in Saturday’s federal election. Not represented at the “town hall” meeting organised by the non-political Peninsula Voice and radio station RPP FM were Pamela Engelander of the Animal Justice Party and the Liberal Party’s Zoe McKenzie. McKenzie bowed out on the morning of the evening meeting at Mount Martha to attend a meeting she had arranged at Portsea Sorrento RSL with Senator James Paterson (“Security takes precedence” this page). Labor candidate Surbhi Snowball was ill, but her campaign manager Marg D’Arcy attended and spoke on her behalf. Each candidate was given two minutes “to make their pitch” and then answer five questions framed on
the results of a survey of 800 Flinders electorate residents. The question covered the cost of living; integrity in politics; aged care and health; climate; refugees; and distribution of preferences. “Our job tonight is a very simple one, we just need to listen. We don’t need to agree with all the things we will hear, but we do need to respectful and considerate, to listen to opinions which may be different to our own,” Peninsula Voice chairperson Peter Orton said by way of introduction. The meeting was live streamed by RRP FM and can be accessed through the station’s website. The program has been viewed more than 1000 times both during the live stream and since. All candidates were invited to submit 300-word statements to The News and these (except for Cindy Marr and Pamela Engelander) are on Pages 11 and 12.
Minors join forces ILLUMINATED signs in shopping centres, corflutes and posters are the most obvious physical indicator of the resources available to candidates. Flinders has 10 candidates and in a bid to make up for any shortfall in three of the minor parties have agreed to hand out each other’s how-to-vote cards during Saturday’s federal election. Supporters of candidates for the United Australia Party (Alex van der End), Pauline Hanson’s One Nation (Cyndi Marr) and the Liberal Democratic Party (Chrysten Abraham) will be handing out cards at more than 30 polling booths across the Mornington Peninsula. It is understood the three minor parties are urging that “the majors” be placed last on ballots. Keith Platt

Continued from Page 1 “When the government promised rough sleepers a home for life and long-term support to get and stay well, it was one of the too few good things to come from the pandemic,” Smith said. She said the sector had been blindsided by the closure of the successful COVID-instigated emergency housing program, where people were accommodated in hotels and then given short-term housing. Now the government has announced a new measure to tackle the housing crisis, but there was not much on offer for rough sleepers. The announcement of $75 million to tackle homelessness over three years will provide capital investment and over time some additional services, but the peak body for Victorian homelessness services warns there no soft landing for rough sleepers. "Homelessness is more than missing out on a safe bed at night - it creates insecurity which conspires to deprive people of work, education and social opportunities,” Smith said. Mornington Peninsula Shire declared a housing crisis in 2021 and, in 2022, announced the release of public land for “affordable housing” (“Neighbours fear ‘ghetto-like’ housing” The News 4/4/22). Salvation Army head of homelessness, Peter McGrath, says the crisis needs a whole of government approach. He said rough sleeping was taking hold on the peninsula again following the 31 January end of the government’s COVID emergency accommodation plan that saw 1800 homeless people temporarily accommodated in hotels and motels across the state. “That was a short-term fix, but we need a longer-term solution that see all levels of government working together, with housing-focussed programs that provide accommodation and support,” McGrath said. He said the state government’s Big Housing Build was “fantastic”, but not a quick fix. He said the government’s soon-to-be-released 10-year housing strategy would give providers drive and direction. “That’s the framework, that’s the great driver for us,” he said. “There are great resources already out there, there are great people doing great work, but we need a long-term driver and a strategy.”
Western Port News 18 May 2022
Role for bays in reaching net zero carbon RESEARCH is under way to prove that protecting and restoring marine ecosystems can ensure Western Port and Port Phillip contribute to Australia reaching net zero carbon emissions. A partnership led by the Western Port Biosphere Reserve Foundation will examine how this can be achieved through investment in local scale “blue carbon” projects to maintain and restore mangrove, seagrass and saltmarsh ecosystems. These marine ecosystems are capable of capturing carbon up to 30 and 50 times faster than terrestrial forests, locking it into the underwater sediments for thousands of years. The foundation has partnered with the seven municipalities of the South East Councils Climate Change Alliance (SECCCA) - including Mornington Peninsula and Frankston - and Deakin University’s blue carbon laboratory, to build on research already undertaken along Victoria’s coastline to identify how future ecosystem management can optimise carbon sequestration and storage. The latest study will focus on Western Port and the eastern edge of Port Phillip, both areas with existing blue carbon assets, and with potential for even greater capacity for carbon capture through the restoration of areas already damaged or lost. Biosphere foundation CEO Mel Barker said money from the municipalities would help “ensure that future and more significant investments into blue carbon would yield positive returns for local communities, the climate and sustained biodiversity”. “Land clearance and degradation of the world’s forests regularly hit the international news as a threat to the Earth’s capacity to absorb carbon dioxide,” he said. “Yet the loss of marine ecosystems on our doorstep and around the world and the equally substantial role they play in maintaining a liveable
Backing research: At Deakin University’s blue carbon lab are, from left, Professor Peter Macreadie, Glenn Brooks-MacMillan (program manager, Western Port Biosphere Foundation) and Daniel Pleiter (acting CEO, SECCCA). planet slips by virtually unnoticed. Globally, wetlands have already declined by 64-71 per cent since 1900.” Barker said the research would “help build awareness that the conservation and restoration of our coastal ecosystems is indispensable to help us adapt and mitigate to climate change”. “Not only could future investment make a substantial contribution to Australia achieving net zero carbon, but it would also help enhance marine biodiversity in the bays and support sectors like recreation, tourism and fishing.” SECCCA chair Michael Whelan said participating councils would have access to the evidence-based guidance for environmental planning and programs for blue carbon ecosystems. “Deakin University’s blue carbon lab is one of the world’s leading centres for blue carbon research, focussed in quantifying the capacity of our coastal and marine envi-
ronments to help offset carbon emissions, especially in the region most relevant to our bayside councils.” Lab head Professor Peter Macreadie said the project would deliver “a valuable roadmap for future investment in blue carbon ecosystem restoration, supported by comprehensive maps of existing habitat, suitable areas for coastal wetland restoration and other co-benefits deriving from these ecosystems, such as coastal protection, fisheries, improvement of water quality”. He said the project was crucial to understanding the blue carbon opportunities at local and regional scale within the Western Port Biosphere Reserve and South East Councils Climate Change Alliance region. “We expect that our project will identify the areas within this region that are suitable to deliver productive blue carbon projects and biodiversity outcomes with the right level of investment and evidence-based project planning and management,” he said.

ON THE COVER
FIVE-BEDROOM FAMILY SPECTACULAR IN graceful synergy with its seaside location, close to the village and the soft sands of South Beach, this contemporary home offers generous living with glistening views of the bay in the distance. A quality finish coupled with a modern design prevails throughout a flexible floor plan that provides three spacious living areas that span both levels of the home and a central kitchen which opens to a sensational entertaining deck. From the front, an undercover porch opens to a wide foyer that quickly takes you through to the main open plan family zone incorporating a comfortable lounge with reverse cycle air-conditioning and a spacious dining area that will
comfortably seat eight. Set between the lounge and dining spaces is the lovely kitchen featuring a sleek island bench that houses the dishwasher, a large stainless-steel oven has a gas cook top, there are plenty of storage drawers and the vivid green tiled splashback adds a great injection of colour. Opposite the kitchen is the entertaining deck complete with fenced jacuzzi, and through the dining area is a separate rumpus room. The upstairs zone has a balcony opening from the third living area, which when coupled with the large master bedroom does make for an excellent parents retreat with the ideal setting for views of the sunset across the bay.
There is also an air-conditioned study with built-in cabinets and the lounge does have a gas log heater.

You’re kidding if you think this excessive American confection, starring Peter Krause and Jennifer Love Hewitt, following the nine-to-ﬁve of emergency ﬁrst responders isn’t really a show about superheroes; they are dressed in ordinary paramedic and ﬁre services gear, but don’t let that fool you. These folks can take on anything, from a newborn stuck inside a plumbing pipe, a boa constrictor choking a woman, an airbus plane crashing in water, and a roller-coaster packed with people stuck upside down. This double episode kicks oﬀ with the team rescuing a diver who panicked in a shark cage.

100 YEARS AGO THIS WEEK...
An update on activities in Balnarring Compiled by Cameron McCullough THE Coolart Estate is looking well under the care of the new owner, Mr Robertson. A large area is under crop, such as oats, rapeseed, and barley, all of which have made rapid headway since the rain came. Oats have been sown more extensively in this district this year, and, should the season be favorable, a good quantity of hay should be available for chaff at the end of the season. The Western Park Estate has changed hands. Mr Hope Campbell, of Melbourne having purchased it from Mr J. Buick, of Mentone. Mr Buick had reserved 200 acres of the farm and erected a very fine house right on the beach but he has now sold that to Melbourne buyer, who intends to start dairying. We are glad to report that Mr. Robert Williams, a returned soldier, who underwent a serious operation in Caulfield Hospital is doing well, and we trust he will be back amongst us again very shortly. Some very fine fish were caught off the shore of the Balnarring Beach by Mr Robertson, of “Coolart”, during the favorable weather. The best schnapper weighed 10lbs., while a flat head, weighing 71bs dressed, was landed one afternoon. This fish put up a great fight, but got on the wrong hook to get away. Things are moving on the Balnarring Beach; already three buildings have been erected while three more are in the course of construction. This is only a start – next season will see many changes. The house of Mr A. C. R Stone has
been under going alterations, which are nearly finished. The new improvements have made a wonderful difference. The interior of Mr Ron W. Stone’s store has also been improved. A new counter and shelving having been constructed to make room for the ever increasing business. This storekeeper has now opened a crockery department and has a very fine display on view. *** A PARTY of invalid soldiers visited Frankston on Sunday and were entertained at “Malunnah” the residence of Mr A. H. Gregory. *** LAST Friday night the Frankston Football Club held a social and dance the success of which was somewhat marred by the failure of the electric light. Mr. E. J. Parker kindly loaned his player piano for the evening and the music supplied by this wonderful instrument was greatly enjoyed. The president of the club (H. J. McCulloch) presented life membership medals to the following supporters of the club in recognition of the valuable services rendered throughout many years: Mesdames C. Dalman, J. A. Cameron, A. Aitkin and W. Gregory, Miss D. Gregory and Mr R. E. Fairnie. *** ON Monday next nominations close for the various offices connected with the Frankston Agricultural and Horticultural Association and should be lodged with the secretary. Mr W. M. Hanton. ***
ARRANGEMENTS in connection with the celebration of Empire Day (24th May) at Frankston, were discussed by the school committee on Wednesday night. Dr. Maxwell (president), was in the chair, and other members present were Capt. Cookson, Messrs Thornton, H. McComb, Legge (correspondent), W. M. Hanton, Young, and the Head Teacher (Mr Jennings). It was decided to invite speakers to address the children at 11am, and to hold a basket picnic in afternoon. The hearty support of parents is relied on to make the day a memorable one. Other matters in connection with the school were discussed, and it was unanimously resolved to join with the Progress Association in carrying out Arbor Day on a date to be fixed. *** FOR Chronic Chest Complaints, Woods’ Great Peppermint Cure. *** MRS Macmaster, with her daughters, left for Belgrave yesterday, where they will remain in retirement till the end of the month. Mrs Macmaster hopes to have recovered her health sufficiently to take up the business of the Bay Estate Agency by 1st June. As a mark of respect to the memory of the late Mr Milner Macmaster, who founded the Scottish Society in Frankston, the Mordialloc Pipers’ Band played a Lament in Bay Street, Frankston, on Saturday afternoon last. Mr H. J. McCulloch (vice president) was present to represent the Frankston Society.
*** AT the conference convened by the shire council, to be held at Frankston tomorrow to further the High School movement, the Frankston School will be represented by Dr Maxwell (president) and Mr H. B. Legge (correspondent). Mr L. J. Ward (sec. Peninsula schools association) and Mr A Bailey, who made a tour of the district last week, were easily successful in securing the necessary number of names of children who will attend the Frankston High School. The list has been lodged with the Education Department. *** CRS. Oates, Mason and Wells, with the secretary of the Progress Association, were received at the Railway Commissioners Offices on Monday last. To their request that the road to the goods shed be made to connect with Beach Street, and that the drain on the east side of the station be filled in, Mr Miscamble promised to inspect the locality. He did not hold out much hope of being able to provide a crane for Frankston. *** THIS week Cr. Wells redeemed his promise to remove the old cannon from the road reserve at the top of Bay Street. It now occupies a position on the heights above the Pier Tea House. *** A LANGWARRIN correspondent writes: By the death of Mr John Cameron there passed away one who in his
vigor was a first–class landscape gardener. In his prime, a very diligent worker, his services were eagerly sought by prominent pastoralists, judges, politicians, and sportsmen, who resided at Toorak and St. Kilda. In this district he laid out and planted the greater part of Rupertstan Orchard, and the fine drive and hedge which adorn the home farm were his work. We offer the widow and family our deepest sympathy in their sad bereavement. *** COUNTRY Roads Board Tenders are invited for the construction of 1991 Lin. feet of the Frankston–Dandenong Road at the Shire boundary. Tenders addressed to the President, duly endorsed must be in my hands on or before 10am of Thursday, June 1st. 1922. Plans, specifications, etc, may be seen at the Municipal Chambers, Frankston. JOHN E. JONES, Shire Secretary. *** PROPOSED Co-Operative Cool Store at Moorooduc. A MEETING will be held in the Brick Hall, Moorooduc, on Wednesday, May 31st, at 8pm, to discuss the above proposition. All those interested are urgently invited to attend. James Wilson, C. M Griffeth – Convenors. *** From the pages of the Frankston and Somerville Standard, 19 May 1922

Ignore pork, as ‘promises’ change after election Oink oink pork policies work good during election campaigns, but when it comes to action a lot is lacking, especially in a safe seat, such as [Flinders MP] Greg Hunt never releasing the $30 million for upgrades to M11 and Jetty Road. The Liberal Victorian government did nothing for us while in power but as soon as Nepean became a contested seat money started rolling in. The federal government has a lock on the Flinders electorate and has delayed spending promised money for years. I would like to know what our candidates are going to do on a federal level, not the oink oink pork they promise to get elected. I want to know how they are going to address climate change, aged care, NDIS, ICAC, China, Pacific region, cost of living, social inequalities, homelessness, rising all above the poverty line, making sure corporate mafia pays fair tax, eliminating 10 billion corporate welfare programs to fossil fuels, how to transition from coal to renewables like the rest of the world, I am not interested in local pork projects. I thought I was electing a federal MP, not a local councilor. From what I can see [Liberal candidate] Zoe McKenzie addresses none of these issues. For the rest of the candidates, I am not sure as they do not have enough money to put flyers in my post box. The number one issue in all surveys is climate change, we know the COALition’s position on that. I am voting against the ones who offer the most pork without any federal policy on federal issues that concern me and should concern the rest of Flinders electorate. Joe Lenzo, Safety Beach
Kangaroo court When is corrupt not corrupt? Better ask the LNP. They seem to call ICAC and IBAC “kangaroo courts” if one of their boys or girls is caught with their fingers in the till or doing something shady (and there have been several). A mere suggestion of IBAC or ICAC brings howls of indignation and “kangaroo court” and “witch hunt”. However, there’s been no cries of kangaroo court over the ICAC findings on [Victorian Premier] Dan Andrews, why is that? I don’t expect answers anytime soon from the Libs. John Cain, McCrae
Waste of trees As a Greens supporting member of the Mornington peninsula, I really do find the bombardment by Liberal Party election material from [Flinders candidate] Zoe McKenzie rather a great waste of trees. It goes against her much spouted concerns for the environment. The falsehoods about LNP concern for the environment and the complete absence of any mention about the much needed and sadly forgotten corruption commission that was promised by our possibly soon to be ex PM, will hopefully see an independent or Greens candidate as the next MP for Flinders. Rupert Steiner, Balnarring Beach
‘Hung’ way to go Isn’t a “hung parliament” the same as a robust widely representative democracy? No wonder the Liberals are panicking - they might have to consider other people’s views and not be able to steamroller and bully Bills through any more which basically got us into this mess. Sounds to me like a “hung parliament” is a good thing actually. Esther Gleixner, Flinders
State issues No wonder the Liberal Party candidate [Zoe McKenzie] is running a mile from debating her policies with me. So many of them are state issues and the responsibility of the state government. There’s her plan to push for lower payroll tax, a state tax. Then there’s the environmental issues that are also the responsibility of the state government - protecting the green wedges; protecting Flinders pier; saving Arthur’s Seat; and
Western Port News

tackling foreshore degradation. As for protecting the region’s iconic spider crab? Again, the responsibility of the Victorian Fisheries Authority. What will really make a difference to environmental degradation is strong climate action, but there’s no mention of that on any Liberals flyer. Dr Sarah Russell, independent candidate for Flinders
Growth a beast In 1856 the French missionary Auguste Chapdelaine was said to be executed by the tortuous practice of lingchi, more commonly known as “death by a thousand cuts”. So too is the fate of the Mornington Peninsula if considered and serious action to restrict the voracious beast of growth is not taken. The proposed expansion of the Balnarring Village shopping centre is yet another quiet but ceaseless nibbling away at our precious green spaces. Ah yes, but the objecting hand of greed is raised and hurriedly points out the green walkways to be paved and the trees to be planted. But the beast of growth’s crude cosmetics sweat away and its thirsty stare blazes bright with the promise of dollars. Let’s protect our treasured spots of shrubs and trees. Let’s stop the greed. Otherwise, like Auguste, we too will die by a thousand cuts. Finn Pedersen, Somers
‘Brazen’ stance Despi O’Connor continues as a candidate for the seat of Flinders despite the fact that she is ineligible under section 44 of the Constitution (“O’Connor proceeds despite ‘roadblock’” The News 10/5/22. This raises questions as to how the preferences will flow as well as a likely High Court challenge and a by-election, should she be electorally successful in the first instance. Some just brazen it out. Geoff Gowers, Merricks North
Liberal ‘no show’ I was unaware of the Padua College Candidates’ Forum (“Candidate missing” Letters 10/5/22). I was however certainly aware of the Sorrento Men’s Shed forum and made arrangements to attend, only to discover from a chum that attendance by [Liberal candidate Zoe] MCKenzie’s attendance had seamlessly morphed from confirmed, through probable (at the time of the independent candidate’s inclusion) to no-show on the day of the forum. Leaving aside the acute embarrassment suffered by the organisers that this behaviour undoubtedly caused, it is Ms McKenzie’s refusal to actually engage in debate with other candidates – let alone the voters – that I view with the greatest suspicion. My suspicion was confirmed on 11 May when she – again – was a no-show at the extremely well-attended Mount Martha “town hall” meeting. I trust that I am not branded a cynic in concluding from the foregoing that if she is the successful candidate, her determination to avoid contact with her constituents before the election will be matched by her disinclination to do anything meaningful for them after the election. Just another careerist hoping to live the good life off our taxes, it appears. Gregory Johnston, Fingal
Island deleted Zoe McKenzie, the Liberal candidate for Flinders states on her website that “the Flinders electorate is 871 sq km, and surrounds and encompasses Western Port, including French Island and Phillip Island, and covers much of the Mornington Peninsula”. Phillip Island has not been included in Flinders since before the 2019 elections when it was incorporated into Bass. One would have thought it important for a candidate to know where the electorate she wants to represent finishes. Maybe that explains why she has only turned up to one out of four candidates’ forums and did not respond to the invitation to the climate action rallies in Mornington and Hastings last weekend.
She is busy campaigning in Phillip Island. Some people are asking where is Zoe? We see so many signs but no in-person. Marg D’Arcy, campaign manager for Labor candidate Surbhi Snowball
Facts and figures In regard to those arguing that a [government] leader should have all facts and figures to hand, let’s not forget that the government and opposition allocate portfolios to various politicians. When it comes to remembering specifics, they are the representatives best to handle the information. Although it is best to target those who supposedly know their own portfolios let’s never forget the debacle of Aged Care Minister Richard Colbeck and his strangulation of facts and figures during the inquiry into aged nursing homes. Anne Kruger, Rye
Morrison is missing Another day and yet another blessed Liberal pamphlet. One has to be impressed by the sheer amount of money [Liberal candidate] Zoe McKenzie is throwing desperately at this Flinders election campaign if nothing else. The glossy messaging hides some rather shabby distortions of the truth, however. For example, AGL’s planned Crib Point gas line was never Labor’s project. The Andrews state government ensured due process and ruled the pipeline unacceptable after unprecedented levels of community protest. Perhaps if Zoe had been living on the Mornington Peninsula at the time she would have known that. She is also claiming credit for stopping the proposed new quarry at Arthur’s Seat. Another fiction. And the $5 million “secured” for the redevelopment of the Rosebud Hospital – that money was for the business plan. When it comes to working with state government to achieve real outcomes for the peninsula, the Morrison government has failed dismally. The Liberals have not fought for urgent action on climate change. They have not acted to protect Australia’s environment. Locally, they want to change existing green wedge legislation. Economically the Liberals have given Australians wage stagnation and higher costs of living. In terms of health, the Liberals mismanaged the response to the COVID-19 pandemic, failing to provide effective quarantine facilities and delaying access to vaccines which forced the imposition of lockdowns. So, while Zoe’s smiling face beams remorselessly from your letterbox and every blue billboard, voters should ask if they really want three more years of Scott Morrison’s federal government? So often Scott Morrison has been missing in action during crises – bushfires, floods, pandemics. And just where is Scott Morrison’s face in any of Zoe’s advertising material? Kerry Macdonald, Mount Martha
Flyer disgust Just when I thought I had surely seen it all, another two coloured flyers appear in my letterbox from Zoe McKenzie. That makes five - or was it six? With each one my disgust at the Liberal Party grows. And I am not alone. Apart from the gross waste of funds, this advertising largesse is indicative of the regard in which our Liberal politicians hold us, their wage payers. The Flinders candidate is either unwilling or unable to discuss policy, unlike several of her rival candidates. She simply doesn’t show up. Are we the voters expected instead to make do with her face all over our streets and in our letterboxes? Are we seen as too forgetful to remember her face from the leaflet we received the week before? Are we seen as too uninformed to vote for anyone other than the one we see most often? Perhaps the Liberal advisors are going for quantity in the absence of quality - speaking of course about policy rather than person. Hopefully, the intelligent voter will see through it. Paula Polson, Dromana
Non-appearance I find it very disappointing that the Liberal candidate for Flinders has failed to attend a number of community forums during this election period. In 2019, Greg Hunt - a very busy minister at the time - attended every forum that was arranged during that election campaign. Those
forums were respectful, insightful, and invaluable for our community. If the Liberals do retain their prized seat of Flinders this Saturday, they need to know this electorate can no longer be taken for granted. Running away from questions, scrutiny and accountability in an election period makes us voters feel like mugs. They must do better. Josh Sinclair, 2019 Labor candidate for Flinders
Reignite confusion Both bemused and unsettled to read of Liberal Democrats contender Chrysten Abrahams’ political alignment with the anti-vax Reignite Democracy (I want to type “party” but it’s a party a thinking person would decline an invitation to attend, even with the lure of fairy bread and chocolate cake) (“Lib Democrats call to rein in government” The News 10/5/22). I think she would be hoping for lots of votes votes from those who have survived an ongoing pandemic and are alive to vote because of hard decisions made, and the benefit of science and medicine. I encourage her to actually think and not align herself with rank opportunism. David Martin, Mount Martha
Nearly there … Election day. “Are we there yet,” recalling the call of a child in the back seat while stopping at the first set of lights on a long car trip interstate. Not quite, time for last minute fear mongering: Death taxes, GST increases, boat arrivals, cost of living, anything likely to increase the fear of a change of government. The many Letters contributors to this newspaper setting out shaky reasoning to vote (like most of us?) for their biased choice. All part of our Mornington Peninsula merry go round. We look forward to the pleasure of weeks without stupid phone calls and an empty mail box. Perhaps even politicians who tell the truth? Loquacity, with apology to Shakespeare: “He speaks an infinite deal of nothing, more than any man in all Australia; his reasons are as two grains of wheat hid in two bushels of chaff; you shall seek all day till you find them; and when you have them, they are not worth the search.” Cliff Ellen, Rye
Under represented Despi O’Connor has left my community of Briars Ward without full representation because she took five months leave from her job as a Mornington Peninsula Shire councillor to campaign as an independent candidate for federal parliament. If she is elected on Saturday, the community will again be without democratic representation for some time. This is because there will be a High Court challenge to determine her eligibility, which could lead to an expensive by-election. To misquote Oscar Wilde: “To leave your electorate without an elected representative once may be regarded as a misfortune; to do it twice looks like carelessness.” Margaret Powell, Mornington
Liberal attacker It seems that all “eligible independent” Sarah Russell is focused on is attacking the Liberals. She doesn’t seem to have many policy ideas at all. However, those she has I’m sure are informed by the Greens and Labor party as she was a member of both parties. And as for the other independent Despi O’Connor, she is ineligible, so I don’t why she is continuing to run. Is Despi going to take the taxpayer money that each candidate gets from the government for every vote received? I’d like an answer to that. Samantha Robinson, Safety Beach
Refugee promises The Grandmothers for Refugees, Flinders Electorate group has advocated for more humane refugee policies for many years. Anything that has been done to better the lives of some refugees is seemingly tokenistic and done with an eye to the election. We request that mandatory detention and offshore detention end, that there is a timely release from detention, that refugees have the right to permanent protection with the end of all temporary visas, and policies which can assist refugees to re-unite with their families. The recognised contribution of refugees to Australia over many years has benefitted us all.
Sign of quality I believe the misinformation which Zoe McKenzie (Liberal candidate) wishes to openly advertise and promote through this sign (right) around voting for independents, helps define the quality of MP she could be for Flinders, alongside her practice of not attending public forums. Meike Suggars, director Voices of Mornington Peninsula, Rosebud Candidates standing as independents, Greens and ALP in the Flinders electorate have all supported changes to current policies and practices. After the election, we as older members of our community request that whoever is elected work to achieve their pre-election promises for refugees. Ann Renkin, Shoreham
Liberal ‘best choice’ Elections are a choice. Your decision is a very important one. Having known [Liberal candidate] Zoe McKenzie for more than 15 years, I know she is a woman of integrity who will stand up and deliver for the people of Flinders. COVID-19 presented the most serious health and economic challenge in living memory. The Liberal [federal] government has seen Australia emerge more strongly than almost any country. Australia avoided the nightmare scenario of many countries. With record investment in hospitals, Medicare, the PBS and mental health services, we have one of the world’s best health systems. The recent budget showed the biggest turnaround in Australia’s finances in 70 years. And defying predictions, unemployment is due to fall to its lowest level in almost 50 years. We can’t take our strong position for granted. The Liberal team has a plan to secure our recovery. Labor and the independents have not presented a credible plan. Zoe is someone with enormous ability who can make an enormous contribution to our peninsula community and country. I respect that there will be different views on many issues. However, with real challenges on the horizon, the Liberal team is the best choice to ensure a strong economy and a stronger future. I know that Zoe’s incredible energy and love for the peninsula would make her an excellent representative for our community. Martin Dixon, Rye
Liberal’s ‘real pledges’ The only candidate with real local policy is [Liberal] Zoe [McKenzie]. If you are to judge the candidate who you will vote for, do so on local policy. Labor and the independents are both relying on catchword wishy-washy “policy”, unlike Zoe who has made real world pledges and commitments for the Mornington Peninsula. This election she has committed $26.37 million, a figure which is publicly accessible on Mornington Peninsula Shire’s website on its election pledge tracker page. This is compared to the dismal amount Labor has committed, which is about $0.5 million. The independents and other parties - zero. Real money and real commitments mean real improvement here on the peninsula. Let’s back those who are backing us, and there’s no better way to see who will than by looking at the cold hard numbers. Marshall Grande, Boneo
Liberal exception Last Wednesday an election forum was organised by Peninsula Voice enabling interested residents of Flinders to hear from the candidates standing in this week’s federal election. Some 400 people registered their attendance. One notable exception was Zoe McKenzie the Liberal candidate.
Book fair record
I’m really glad that local sporting facilities will be upgraded. I see that [Liberal candidate] Zoe McKenzie has pledged $5 million for the Mornington District Basketball Association and money for new cricket and netball facilities in Dromana. Our local sports are such an essential part of our community and so important to the mental health of our kids. So many of these facilities are ageing or tired so it’s very encouraging to see this investment. I hope there is a lot more to come. Who knows, our next gold medal sporting star may just come from the peninsula. Catherine Manson, Dromana
Mornington Lions Club held its biggest and best annual charity book fair over the 23, 24 April weekend and achieved a record breaking result. Our entry “gold coin donation” raised almost $2000. The Bays Hospital was nominated by club members as the recipient of these gold coin donations which will go towards their Comprehensive Cancer Centre project. This vital centre will provide radiation oncology treatment, a nine-chair and one bed day infusion unit, space for a clinical trials and research unit, a wellness hub, tranquil garden and consulting suites for doctors providing essential services to patients. Mornington Lions Club was grateful to receive outstanding support this year from both within our local community and from those further afield. This assistance has contributed to raising much-needed money to help our community. We thank those who helped in promoting our event; with board signs, together with Main Street traders displaying our posters, the distribution of flyers, articles in newspapers and magazines and posting on social networking websites. A big thank you goes also to those who donated books and those who generously gave their time in working together with our club members in a hands on capacity: setting up “the Studio” with sorting, stacking, re-stocking, arranging and packing the books on display. We have already been approached with a range of pre-loved books for 2023. This has indeed been a passionate and united effort by so many. The contribution from each and every one who took part will enable Mornington Lions Club to continue to assist where help is needed. Patricia Forsyth, Mornington Lions Club
Her non-attendance has one of two explanations: either, because the Liberal Party has held the seat since 1984, that is 36 years, Ms McKenzie believes that all she needs to do to get elected is erect large billboards and distribute multiple mail outs. This reasoning shows complacency or worse arrogance. Alternatively, knowing that if she attended the forum she would be required to defend the current government’s egregious record, on such issues as climate change, COVID vaccine mismanagement, aged care, robodebt, sports and car park rorts, she reasoned that defending the indefensible was too embarrassing and the safest option was to be a no show. Whatever Ms McKenzie’s reasoning, the question must be asked: what sort of representation will the electors of Flinders receive if a candidate who, when seeking election, chooses not to engage with the community she wishes to represent? Surely Flinders can do better. Surely Flinders deserves better. Geoff Hilton, Mount Martha
Courting history? In this election, [independent] Despi O’Connor continues to campaign for the seat of Flinders and seek donations despite the AEC informing her that someone who “profits from the Crown” is not eligible to nominate. Although many MPs have fallen foul of section 44 after an election, has any candidate ever had serious section 44 concerns raised before an election? If Ms O’Connor wins the election, she goes straight to the High Court and then most likely an expensive taxpayer-funded by-election will be held. This is most certainly not in the best interests of people she refers to as “my community”. The irony is that Ms O’Connor stands on a platform of Integrity. Geoff Gowers, Merricks North
Outstanding questions As far as I know [Labor leader] Anthony Albanese and [Prime Minister] Scott Morrison have not been asked the questions that really matter to most Australian voters. I find this incredible considering that there is scientific evidence which reveals, beyond a doubt, that your income is a measure of your quality of life, your security and health. No politician should be elected to any parliament unless they know the answers to such important questions: What is the poverty line in Australia? The OECD states it is now at $460.33 a week for a single person, higher for couples. The JobSeeker rate has, however, been deliberately kept way below this measure. What is the minimum adult rate of pay in Australia? It’s currently only $772.60 a week while our MPs can be paid more than 20 times this amount plus electoral and secretarial allowances. What is the impact of poverty on the community? Poverty prevents people from meeting their most basic needs in life, contributes to increasing homelessness, and makes individuals vulnerable to both serious physical and psychological health problems. What about inequality? Inequality undermines public trust and confidence in our MPs and leaders. It also contributes to crime and creates externalities that compromise life in the wider community. John Glazebrook, Rye
Where is she? I am disappointed that arguably the most extensively and expensively publicised candidate in the Flinders electorate, Liberal Zoe McKenzie, avoided a vital opportunity to personally present herself at the meet the candidates Forum in Mount Martha last Wednesday evening. This was the last opportunity before the election for all the candidates to demonstrate to a large audience of voters, not only their policies, but also their advocacy skills if and when they are elected to represent us in federal parliament. I was really looking forward to seeing and hearing all the candidates until it was announced that Ms McKenzie had withdrawn from the forum a few hours earlier, with no reason provided. She has also avoided other public meetings alongside other candidates. Am I to conclude that Zoe McKenzie is afraid to stand up to speak in a public meeting? If that is the case, what will be her use as the Flinders representative in our national parliament (which by definition is all about speaking)? Or is it perhaps that, if elected, Zoe will represent only the views of her party and Liberal Party supporters? John Stamp, Rosebud
Enough is enough Last week of the election campaign and it looks as though, like us, the polies have had enough. Recently on television the Liberal Party has been warning Labor that there is a hole in the economic bucket they will hand over if Labor wins. What an amazing fact to admit. Maybe the Liberals do not really want to win. It’s surely time for regulated political advertising similar to product advertising. We need our politicians to treat us intelligently and to stop “dumbing down” the people they serve. James Carr, McCrae
Branches remain I also complained about the lack of response to fallen branches (“Row continues over storm clean-up” The News 3/5/22). I’ve called [Mornington Peninsula Shire] four times and received a message over Easter that my branches will be attended to. Good news, but nothing yet. I was prepared to wait for our bi-annual free green waste in April, and I was told over a phone conversation to the council that they ran an extra free green waste during December to compensate. As a consequence, they weren’t offering a free green waste in April and ratepayers will need to wait until November when they offer this service. Our neighbourhood still has many streets with last year’s branches lying about, some almost unsighted due to grass engulfing these branches. We pay rates, pay to drop off green waste (after using our vouchers) and then pay to pick up our mulch. Maybe council should work out a fairer system. We aren’t even offered free roadside collections like some councils. Leigh Osborne, Mount Martha
Fine dog owners What is needed to stop the disgusting state of the [Frankston] boardwalk? It is covered constantly with dog poo and council officers need to start issuing fines for dog owners who are negligent in picking up their dog’s poo. At ratepayers’ expense they are provided with bags and bins for the disposal of poo. As ratepayers, my husband and I have watched dog owners brazenly keep walking after their dog defecated on the board walk. Mary Georgiou, Frankston south
Rate loss It appears that Frankston Council is playing with rate distribution as a way of increasing rates to the residents. It will decrease rates to business properties and expect residents to subsidise those, so they remain under the cap. So much for pensioners and low income families whose properties have already been overvalued. It is well past time for this council to reevaluate just what it is spending our hard earned cash on. Garry Mahoney, Frankston South
Non-musical Living here in Mornington is God’s backyard and, to me, it’s paradise. I love being near the water having grown up in Yarrawonga on the mighty Murray River, lived in beautiful San Diego, California and Olivers Hill, Frankston. Our close proximity neighbors recently dobbed my son in to the council for excessive loud music in our garden shed in our backyard where he chills after work and has his smokes. I cannot hear his music from inside our home so how the heck can they hear it unless they are up against our fence? After the past two years with COVID locking the world down and now the horrid situation in Ukraine where men, women and children are fleeing their homes in fear of a war monster we have this type of people living here among us trying to cause trouble over music. They should get a life and leave others alone. Neville Smith, Mornington
Life-saving help I am writing to thank everyone involved when I tripped over in Seaford on 31 March. I had been to the flower show and was walking to my car when I fell. Many people came to my aid and assisted me as I split my head open. I was very fortunate as two off duty paramedics were walking by. They saved my life by stopping the bleeding. After waiting on the footpath for two hours for an ambulance to come I was then taken to Frankston Hospital emergency where I waited in line with 16 ambulances ahead of mine, to be admitted. I was eventually taken to Peninsula Private hospital where I was operated on. I have since made a full recovery and I am so grateful to all the people who helped me on that day. Thank you all.

THE MEANING OF EXISTENCE... AND OTHER SHORT STORIES
I Sing The Body Electric Guitar By Stuart McCullough SECRETS – we all have them. For some, a secret is an idea; a piece of information we carry in our souls. Others hide their secrets in a deep, dark and inaccessible emotional cavern that, with any luck, will never be found. That’s all right for some. For others, however, a secret is less existential as it is physical. And whether you hide that thing in a roof cavity or bury it in a backyard, someone’s going to find it eventually. For me, my deepest, darkest secret is on DVD. I know how that sounds - as though I’ve been part of something truly salacious or, worse still, was once a contestant on ‘Married At First Sight’, but no. My secret is much more disturbing than that. It involves things that, all this time later, I find it difficult if not impossible to face up to. But as dark as a secret might be, there comes a time when a secret must be shared with someone else, either in the interests of transparency or to give them one last chance to get out whilst they still can. That time had arrived. Have you ever seen that footage of the Loch Ness monster? It’s grainy and weird and it’s hard to be sure you’re seeing what you think you’re seeing. This footage is almost identical except that it includes guitars and a mullet. Or, to be precise, my mullet; in all its bouncy, resplendent glory. And a saxophone. (It was, after all, the eighties, when the law required that every emotional apex and valley had to be accompanied by the honking rich sounds of a saxophone.) Put
Western Port News
another way; imagine if the Loch Ness monster had, rather than simply tentatively sticking his head out of the water, been a teenager fronting a band. Then you’ll get the idea. I suppose I should just come right out and say it – I was in a rock band as a teenager. If that doesn’t horrify you, then there are some additional
18 May 2022
pieces of information I feel I ought to disclose. The first is that we were no regular teenage rock band. Covers of ‘Wild Thing’ and ‘Louie Louie’ weren’t for us. Nor did we bang out sketchy versions of Australian Crawl or Cold Chisel songs. In fact, we didn’t do covers songs at all. We only performed originals. If that’s not enough to inspire you
to spontaneously stuff marshmallows into your ears, I’m not sure what would. As teenagers, we looked around at the other bands and the abysmal but crowd-pleasing covers they were doing and decided that we’d write our own songs. It was a breathtakingly arrogant thing to do. On a practical note (F# most likely), it wasn’t just that we were ambitious; some of us were limited in terms of our musical abilities and were incapable of playing the songs of others. If you can’t imitate, you must create. So we did. The second key fact is this: we were a band that met at church and all our song lyrics were religious. No, really. To the extent that it was technically possible to accumulate cool points for being in a rock band, they vanished the moment we opened our mouths. We wanted to be cool. We thought we were cool. But by any objective measure, we were not cool and this DVD is proof of that. Originally, it would have been shot on video. As a result, the images are somewhat unstable and, once in a while, a line of interference runs down the screen like a picture with a bad aerial. We are playing in a church hall in Cheltenham. Presumably, we were there to keep ‘the kids’ off the mean streets of Southland or similar. That said, it is also possible that our music inspired some to a life of crime. I couldn’t blame them. We were introduced by some incredibly uncool looking fellow who, most likely, was the leader of the local Youth Group. Then we hit the stage.
I was wearing a suit vest and had a mop of hair that might as well have been on loan from Princess Diana. All our songs had long, serious neoclassical synthesizer introductions, to create a suitably joyless atmosphere. We were a serious band with a serious message. That message should probably have been ‘block your ears’, but it wasn’t. As the neo-classical synth intro came to an end, the guitars and drums kicked in. As the lead singer, it was my job to be a focal point. I achieved this by reacting as though a large amount of electricity had just been directed through my body. It was not pretty. It’s inevitable – there’s a point in any relationship where you’ve got to drag out the skeletons lest they should be discovered at some future point and you’re accused of concealing something. As I played the DVD, I’ll admit I found it difficult to watch. That, primarily, was because I was incapable of removing my hands from my face. Beside me, the footage was greeted with sensitivity. In particular, the kind of sensitivity that involves falling off the couch with uncontrollable fits of laughter. Which is fair enough. We leave our past behind for a reason. But it’s still very much a part of us, no matter what we do. And to share that with someone else and have them accept it is a mighty thing indeed. It’s thirty-five years since that performance. It may well be another thirty-five years before I can watch that DVD again. Here’s hoping.. email@example.com

Pythons win a close one, Kangaroos clear on top MPNFL
By Brodie Cowburn
TWO points separated Rosebud and Pines at the end of a thrilling clash on Saturday. Rosebud have had a miserable year, and went into their clash with Pines looking for their first win of the season. The Pythons have also struggled at times. Rosebud raced out of the gates, taking a 22 point lead into the first break. Pines put just one behind on the scoreboard in the first quarter. Pines chipped away at the lead in the second term. They trailed by just five at half time. Momentum continued to swing Pines’ way in the third term. By three-quarter-time the Pythons had taken the lead by 13 points. Pines kicked just one goal in the final term, but that was enough to secure the win. Pines ended up scraping over the line 7.13 (55) to 8.9 (57). Guy and Beau Hendry were among Pines’ best. Liam McKenna impressed for Rosebud. Sorrento and Dromana have both been evenly matched this year, but it was the Sharks who emerged from their clash on Saturday with the four points. Both sides traded blows throughout the first three quarters, with Sorrento ahead by just two points at the final break of play. They put their foot on the gas in the final term, running away to a three goal win 13.18 (96) to 11.12 (78). Leigh Poholke, Mitch Parker, and Curtis Bywater each kicked three goals for the Sharks. Poholke has kicked 22 for the season. Mt Eliza finished the round on top of the ladder. They clinched the spot by defeating EdithvaleAspendale. Flying high: Somerville kicked 19 goals to run out 63-point winners against Mornington. Picture: Alan Dillon
It’s been a difficult season so far for Edi-Asp, and Saturday was no different. The Redlegs won by 88 points - 20.18 (138) to 7.8 (50). The final match of the round saw Frankston Bombers beat Red Hill 6.10 (46) to 9.11 (65).
LANGWARRIN’S excellent 2022 season continued with a big win over Devon Meadows on Saturday. Devon Meadows struggled badly in front of their home crowd. They kicked just four goals for the day. Langwarrin weren’t at their best throughout most of the game either. They kicked five goals in the first three quarters of the game, but dominated the final term. An eight goals to one final quarter helped Langy secure a comfortable 4.8 (32) to 13.14 (92) win. Nicholas Tuddenham, Billy Rolfe, Matthew Peynenborg, and Mitchell Cuthbert were among Langwarrin’s best. Sean Herdman kicked three goals. Somerville sits in second place, a game behind Langwarrin. They cemented their spot with a big win over Mornington at Alexandra Park on Saturday. Somerville’s firepower in front of goal proved the difference. They booted 19 goals throughout the day. Ryan Gillis and Lachlan Williams both kicked six goals each. A six goals to zero first quarter put the game to bed early. Somerville ended up winning 9.12 (66) to 19.15 (129). Devon Meadows are third after their defeat at the hands of Langwarrin. They are equal on points with Karingal, Pearcedale, and Chelsea. Karingal enjoyed a 70 point win over Hastings on Saturday. Pearcedale beat Crib Point by 27, and Chelsea defeated Tyabb by 38. The final game of the round was between Rye and Seaford. Seaford kicked 24 goals, helping them get a 74 point win.
Brown has another talented stayer on his hands HORSE RACING
By Ben Triandafillou CLIFF Brown certainly hasn’t lost his knack for getting South Australian Derby runners ready. The Mornington-based trainer saddled up his first runner in the race in over 20 years with the improving talent Yaphet taking his place in the three-year-old staying contest on Saturday 14 May at Morphettville. Brown has had remarkable success in the Derby having saddled up three winners within five years with Cheviot (1996), Markham (1997) and Blue Murder (2000) saluting during the late 90’s, and once again Brown was right around the mark with his newest talent. After winning third-up at Sale over 1600m and edging out another handy galloper in So You See, Brown’s
Yaphet continued to thrive as he stepped out in trip. Yaphet settled out the back in a 2000m contest at Caulfield two starts back and rattled home to finish in fourth giving hope that the extra trip of the Derby (2500m) will be to his liking. Once again, the gelded son of Blackfriars settled at the rear in the Group One contest alongside the unbeaten Detonator Jack. Ridden by Ben Allen, Yaphet rounded up the field turning into the home straight and finished off strongly but just wasn’t able to reel in the Mick Price and Mick Kent-trained Jungle Magnate who showed a good turn of foot to win by one-and-a-half lengths. Yaphet beat off Detonator Jack to hold his place in second. Brown said he was thrilled with the performance of the improving gelding.
“We were really happy with him, he was tremendous,” Brown said. “We’ve always liked him, he’s a nice horse and is progressive so hopefully there’s exciting times ahead.” “He’ll go for a break now. He’s had a bit of racing so we’ll see how he spells and bring him back in for the Spring.” Brown also has The Inferno lining up in another Group One in South Australia on Saturday. The five-yearold son of Holy Roman Emperor will take his place in the $500,000 Goodwood Handicap (1200m). Brown believes he can improve again after placing a narrow third in the Group 3 D C McKay Stakes (1100m) last start. “He seems to be going well,” he said. “I thought he was very good last start and think there’s more improvement to come.”
On the up: Cliff Brown’s Yaphet continues to improve, running second in the Group One South Australian Derby on Saturday. Picture: Supplied.

Win drought ends for Langy SOCCER
By Craig MacKenzie LANGWARRIN broke its winless run in style with a 6-1 mauling of Goulburn Valley Suns in Shepparton on Saturday. It took Scott Miller’s side three minutes to open its account with a superb solo effort from Jeremy Min Fa who dribbled past two opponents then curled the ball into the far corner from just outside the area. In the 24th minute Cal Goulding won possession and sent Kieran Dover clear on the right. Dover’s cutback was met first time by Tom Youngs and it was 2-0. Three minutes into the second half any chance of a Suns comeback ended when an embarrassing mixup involving defender Sean Pye and keeper Sam Varley presented Dover with a tap-in. The rout continued in the 56th minute when Dover won the ball and slipped it to substitute Ryan Paczcowski who hit a low left-foot shot from outside the area that beat Varley at his near post. Two minutes later Dover struck again this time with a fierce shot from the right that again had Varley grasping at thin air at his near post. The Suns’ sole reply came in some style when Brendan Giaccherini’s cutback from the left was deftly curled first time by Alex Caldow into the top corner in the 74th minute. But Langy sub Shayan Alinejad completed the scoreline in the 86th minute when he was played in on the left of the area and effected a simple finish. In State 1 Mornington missed a chance to end Boroondara-Carey Eagles’ unbeaten streak when it drew 0-0 with the league leader at Dallas Brooks Park last weekend. Despite having five players out through injury Mornington was the better side and although there were few chances created the best fell to the home team. In State 2 Peninsula Strikers maintained their four-point gap at the top with a 2-2 draw against secondplaced Collingwood City at Ballam Park on Saturday night. Strikers led after eight minutes when Collingwood keeper Michael van Eijk made a mess of trying to clear a long-range effort from Calvin Delaney but the visitors levelled in the 23rd minute when captain Peter Seehusen broke clear and beat Strikers custodian Ben Caballero from the ensuing one-on-one.
Double trouble: Jeremy Min Fa (left) started the goal avalanche and Kieran Dover played his part with a double in Langwarrin’s 6-1 drubbing of Goulburn Valley Suns last weekend. Pictures: Darryl Kennedy
Strikers regained the lead in the 64th minute when Jai Power ran onto Riley Anderton’s header and slotted the ball past van Eijk. The points were shared after Collingwood hit back in the 84th minute when Cabellero could only parry allowing Jimin Dooley to finish from close range. Skye United defeated Berwick City 3-0 at home on Saturday in the annual John Ramsden Memorial Day. Skye started off the better of the two sides and in the 5th minute Berwick’s Phil Hawkins was sent off after denying a clear scoring opportunity to Skye striker Mitch Blake. But Blake couldn’t be denied in the 21st minute after being put through by Mark O’Connor and the hosts doubled their lead seven minutes later when Jason Nowakowski pounced on an error from Berwick keeper Kris McEvoy then rolled the ball into the unguarded net. The afternoon got worse for the Berwick custodian when five minutes into the second half he earned a sec-

gave Waugh a simple point-blank header. Currie was sent clear in the 66th minute and finished in style to put Pines in cruise control at 3-0. Liam Baxter came off the subs bench in the 69th minute and within 11 minutes had scored twice, his first after beating the offside trap and lobbing the Middle Park keeper and his second from the penalty spot after Thomas Wood had been brought down. In State 4 Baxter and Chelsea drew 2-2 in an entertaining contest at Baxter Park last weekend. It was all Chelsea from the get-go but it couldn’t convert its dominance and paid dearly when Robbie O’Toole ran onto Dave Greening’s lay-off in the 26th minute and finished well. Max Timuska-Carr equalised in the 41st minute when he ran onto Piers Brelsford’s clever backheel and slipped the ball past Baxter keeper James Foster. Baxter had its backs to the wall when O’Toole was shown a second
ond caution and an automatic sendoff after reacting to a Blake challenge. And the contest was put out of the visitors’ reach in the 59th minute when Jack Gallagher headed home a James George cross. The John Ramsden award winners were O’Connor (seniors) and Dale Atkins (reserves). In State 3 Frankston Pines are now outright league leaders for the first time this season after a 5-0 thrashing of Middle Park at Carrum Downs Recreation Reserve on Friday night. Pines were ordinary in the first half so much so that head coach Kevin “Squizzy” Taylor by his own admission lost his temper during the interval. Goodness knows what he said but in the 47th minute the goal deluge started when Jordan Avraham sent Dylan Waugh clear and he cleverly dinked the ball over advancing Middle Park keeper Oscar Taylor. Avraham sent Aaran Currie down the left six minutes later and he cut inside before his deflected cutback
yellow card and sent off in the 75th minute but the 10 men conjured up a superb interpassing move in the 82nd minute to make it 2-1. It started with Izaak Barr in the right-back position playing the ball to Nathan Yole who had dropped back into midfield after starting up front. Yole released Greening on the left and he cut inside before laying the ball into the path of Charlie O’Connell who struck it with power and placement past Chelsea keeper Rhys Davies. Just when the home side thought it could hang on for the win Chelsea substitute Liam Pavlov hit a stunning free-kick in the 88th minute that gave Foster no chance. Somerville Eagles lost 3-0 away to Springvale City on Saturday night with all the goals coming after a scoreless first half. Tom Pollock and Ash Scholes gave away penalties which were converted and late in the second half Pollock was sent off after a bad challenge. In State 5 Mount Martha won 5-3 away to Endeavour Hills last weekend. Chris Sanderson’s side was cruising at half-time with a 4-1 lead thanks to Neal Byrne, a Howie Anderson double and a long-range effort from Mitch Hawkins. Ethan Sanderson missed from the spot in the first half but when given the chance to take another penalty in the 85th minute he made no mistake. Rosebud lost 2-0 at home to Bunyip District on Saturday night. On a positive note the club has given game time this season to four 17-year-olds in central defender Louis Bisogni, pacy forward Jakob Markulin, central midfielder Riley Gill and midfielder Josh Lyall. Here are this weekend’s round 10 games: FRIDAY: Chelsea v Springvale City, Edithvale Recreation Reserve, 8.30pm; Noble Park v Baxter, Norman Luth Reserve, 8.30pm.
