Full stop: A chain of events started by a fuel truck (above) allegedly leaking diesel onto Western Port Highway at Somerville early last Thursday saw five cars crash either into other vehicles or off the road, and a Baxter CFA truck roll on the way to the scene at the end of Eramosa Rd East. Police said it was surprising no one was badly injured, especially the driver of a Nissan sedan (top), which was first to hit the fuel slick.

Diesel spill causes chaos By Mike Hast POLICE are investigating reports that a fuel truck spilled diesel on Western Port Highway at Somerville early last Thursday that lead to five cars crashing. A Baxter CFA truck travelling to the accident rolled at the end of Eramosa Rd East, putting two of three fireys on board in hospital, one with a broken collarbone. The first car to hit the diesel about

6.15am speared across into oncoming traffic and was hit by two cars travelling south on the highway about 500 metres north of the T-intersection with Eramosa Rd East. Two more cars slid off the greasy road and were badly damaged. Sergeant Dave Collins of Hastings highway patrol said it was amazing no one was badly injured. “Two drivers with minor injuries were taken to Frankston Hospital

by road ambulances,” he said. The diesel covered parts of the highway for about 300 metres. A specialist contractor was called to place absorbent material on the road to remove the fuel. Police were told a truck had broken down near the accident scene before the cars crashed. The truck was later seen on the highway near Ballarto Rd, parked with its bonnet up.

The CFA truck rolled onto its side and crushed a section of Armco barrier near the eastern end of Eramosa Rd. Cranes were needed to lift the truck onto its roof and then its side before it was moved back onto its wheels to avoid damaging the road surface. The barrier was cut to enable the truck to be moved. United Energy workers were also at the scene as the fire truck had hit a power pole.

An eyewitness who did not want to be named told The News the poor state of Eramosa Rd East could have contributed to the truck rolling. “The ripple strips have been replaced recently and the road is badly patched, which may have caused the fire truck to loose traction as it approached the intersection,” they said. The two roads were closed for several hours as emergency services workers and volunteers cleared the carnage.

Royal help sought for ranger danger SEAN Willmore has sought royal backing for his efforts to help national park rangers whose lives are threatened by wildlife poachers. Willmore’s Thin Green Line Foundation had its beginnings in Balnarring but its work long ago spread to the world stage and now has been brought to the attention of Prince Charles and Prince William. Now also president of the International Ranger Federation, Mr Willmore met the princes while attending the Illegal Wildlife Trade Seminar and reception at St James Palace, London. “With a world leaders meeting set for later this year, the meeting with Prince Charles and Prince William will ensure the support for rangers and their families are firmly on the agenda for our world leaders to discuss,” Mr Willmore said. “It was an honour to be selected and invited to represent park rangers worldwide at this exclusive meeting on illegal wildlife trade. “For Prince Charles and Prince William to recognise the need for representation of the frontline workers in conservation, our rangers, is a milestone to say the least.” Mr Willmore said it had been “humbling” to be at the palace talking about frontline conservation, ranger training, ranger fatalities, and support for their families and “having the princes engaged in this mission”. “Both Prince Charles and William

were genuinely interested in where they might be able to help the rangers,” he said. Mr Willmore presented Prince William with a baby-sized Thin Green Line t-shirt and copies of the fundraising album Greenline Grooves. He is now leading a tour through Africa to demonstrate the work of rangers.

On the move: Somerville Lions Club is about to close down but not before raising money for the relocation of its long-time meeting place, the Fruitgrowers Hall. Picture: Yanni

Ageing Lions set to retire SOMERVILLE Lions Club is closing down after 41 years. The club is down to about half a dozen members aged mostly in their late 70 and early 80s, according to one of the charter members, Marshall Unthank. “We’ve tried for years to get new members but it hasn’t worked out,” he said. Mr Unthank said the club had raised thousands of dollars for community projects, including $15,000 to fitout rooms at the palliative care unit at Peninsula Health’s rehabilitation centre in Golf Links Rd, Frankston,

and the Peter MacCallum Cancer Centre in East Melbourne. The club raised about $10,000 a year in various ways, including sausage sizzles and at one stage fattening cattle for sale. “We were a working team, doing paper drives and chopping wood for pensioners,” Mr Unthank said. Another $25,000 has been given to the Somerville, Tyabb and District Heritage Society to help pay for the relocation of Fruitgrowers Hall, the club’s long-time meeting place.

You can’t just shut the door and walk away,” he said. The closure of the Lions comes six months after Western Port Lions also called it a day. The Western Port club had been running for 44 years and was down to seven members, well short of the 50 plus members during the club’s heyday. Keith Platt

Challenge to the top ORGANISERS expect more than 2000 entries in this year’s 6.7-kilometre Arthurs Seat Challenge. The challenge to run or walk to the top of the Mornington Peninsula’s highest point from Rosebud pier is the main fundraiser for the Fit 2 Drive program. It teams year 11 students with trained university undergraduates in a half-day workshop to help young drivers and passengers stand up for themselves when faced with dangerous situations and to consider strategies to deal with road risk. Fit 2 Drive has spread to 180 secondary schools across the state since beginnings more than a decade ago in Frankston and on the peninsula. This year’s Sunday 10 November event was launched at Arthurs Restaurant on Wednesday. Transport Accident Commission CEO Janet Dore said thousands of peninsula students had learnt from the program of the dangers of risktaking behind the wheel. Ms Dore said 18-25 year olds made up 26 per cent of the state’s road fatalities “despite making up about 13 per cent of Victorian licence holders”. TAC statistics for 2011 showed 381 claims for compensation were made by people injured in road accidents on the peninsula. The accidents included nine fatalities and 86 claims for hospital stays of more than a day.

Transfers ‘improve’, says minister HEALTH Minister David Davis says the transfer of patients from ambulances into Rosebud Hospital’s emergency department have improved. Statistics for the three months to the end of March show 90.4 per cent of patients arriving at the hospital in an ambulance had their transfer completed within the target of 40 minutes. “In the December quarter, 89.1 per cent of transfers were completed in the required 40 minutes, so the latest information shows the performances of ambulances and the hospital have improved,” Mr Davis said. The Opposition said in May that the average number of hours each month ambulances waited at Rosebud Hospital was 75 under Labor and 102 under the Coalition government.

Lessons on raising money VOLUNTEER groups are being offered free tuition on how to successfully apply for money from government and private sources. Mornington Peninsula Shire, itself a target for those seeking finance, is running a workshop on writing for grants and making fundraising presentations. The workshop is on Wednesday 12 June at the shire’s offices in Queen St, Mornington.

Groups help gear-up CFA MONEY collected by three community groups has enabled Somerville CFA to buy an automatic external defibrillator. The money was by Somerville Bowling Club's charity day, Somerville Woolworths Australia Day barbecue and a donation from the Somerville Tyabb Rotary Club. Between them, the three raised $3500 for the life-saving device to be installed on one of the brigade's trucks. "The defibrillator is used to assist a person with heart problems, and we hope we never have to use it," brigade captain Allan Monti said. "However, our members will be trained to ensure that it can be brought into action whenever required in order to save a life.” Captain Monti said it would have been difficult for the brigade to raise the money “on our own so quickly”. New equipment: With a new automatic external defibrillator for Somerville CFA are, from left, Jessica Warner, Allan Monti, Gwynelda Ivers, Alan Smith, Bob Savage, Lindsay Edwards and Doug Macdonald.

Crime statistics a ‘mixed bag’

The write stuff: This ambulance in Somerville on Thursday afternoon carried the message “This truck not used for 4 nights last week between Frankston and Rosebud… Fix it Napthine!” and “Longest delays in state … Geoff Shaw fails Frankston”.

Graffiti illustrates ambos’ anger By Tony Duboudin ANGRY Victorian ambulance paramedics are turning their vehicles into mobile billboards in their battle with the state government over pay and conditions. Ambulance Employees Australia says paramedics are venting their anger with graffiti after it had spent nine months trying to negotiate a new pay and conditions deal with the state government. Union secretary Steve McGhie said the graffiti on ambulances was “pretty widespread”. “It’s part of a paramedics campaign to bring their concerns to the attention of the Victorian public,” he said. Mr McGhie said Ambulance Victoria had threatened disciplinary and possible legal action against paramedics over the graffiti but the union believed it was a protected industrial action. He said Victorian paramedics were the lowest paid in the country. “We have had 28 meetings over pay and conditions with the state government and the 29th is

ASSAULTS, drug offences and car thefts have risen across the Mornington Peninsula in the 12 months to March, according to the latest police crime figures. While crimes against people were up by 26 per cent, burglaries, theft from cars and property damage were all down. Acting Inspector Paul Cripps said the crime statistics were “a mixed bag”. “Of particular concern to police are crimes of violence such as assaults and family violence, which increased during the past 12 months.” Inspector Cripps said a team had been set up to investigate family violence, the biggest single assault offence. He said team members would “specifically target recidivist offenders and repeat victims to ensure that those people are dealt with efficiently, and referred to relevant support agencies where appropriate to provide long-term ongoing support and assistance”. He said property crimes had decreased 19.7 per cent and theft from vehicles had dropped 7.6 per cent along with smaller reductions in residential burglaries. A 15.6 per cent drop in detected drug offences showed “how successful police have been over the previous year in taking drugs off the streets”. “I am also pleased to say that many people continue to follow our advice in regard to locking their vehicles,” Inspector Cripps said. “Vehiclerelated offences are primarily opportunistic and unfortunately they often occur because vehicle owners do not lock their cars and leave valuables

in clear view.” He said fatal and serious injury vehicle collisions had decreased and “traffic police continued to be tasked to concentrate on recidivist traffic offenders and traffic hot spots”. “Mornington Peninsula police will not tolerate people who drive under the influence of alcohol or drugs or engage in hoon behaviour. “This anti-social behaviour will continue to be a focus of police efforts so the community can travel to and through the peninsula safely.”

Councils meet feds THE Federal Government will hold the fourth Australian Council of Local Government at Parliament House on 16 June. The council will bring together more than 400 local government representatives, federal ministers and parliamentary secretaries and will be the nation’s largest gathering of mayors and shire presidents. The inclusion of local government in the nation’s Constitution will be top of the agenda. A government spokesman said the meeting would continue “ongoing dialogue with local government on ways to improve the delivery of infrastructure and services”. The meeting coincides with the start of the annual National General Assembly of Local Government convened by the Australian Local Government Association, which will be held from 17-19 June at the National Convention Centre in Canberra.

scheduled for 14 June. Our log of claims was put in 26 April last year,” he said. The union wants a 30 per cent pay rise over three years to bring Victorian paramedics into line with their interstate counterparts. In South Australia, the ACT and Western Australia, paramedics earn $23,000 a year more than their Victorian counterparts. The union claims 81 per cent of paramedics said that there were not enough paramedics to cover the state’s needs and that 1500 workers, more than half of the ambulance service workforce, were preparing to quit the service over the next five years. The pay and conditions dispute heated up when Ambulance Victoria was accused of making drivers keep their vehicles logged on at the end of their shifts creating “phantom ambulances” to give the impression that there were more ambulances available. The claim was denied by Ambulance Victoria, which said the practice was for technical reasons and did not impact on reporting.

Population up 30,000 in next 20 years By Toni Brient MORNINGTON Peninsula’s population is expected to increase by more than 30,000 people in the next two decades and almost half of them will be retired people. Immediate initiatives in the Mornington Peninsula Shire’s proposed 2013-14 budget, released in midMay, will contribute to a number of long-term plans to accommodate the growth. The shire’s corporate planning manager, Niall McDonagh, said the budget responds to key elements in the draft strategic plan, also released this month. “The strategic plan sits over everything,” he said. “While it doesn’t set out the details of the budget, it sets out the parameters.” The shire’s strategic planning manager, Allan Cowley, said each shire department contributed to budget planning. “All departments have ongoing programs and ideas. We all suggest potential projects but the council has to decide priorities. “Essentially the budget reflects this.” Mr McDonagh said the Plan Peninsula community consultation meetings in 2012 contributed significantly to the development of the draft strategic plan and budget. Growth and population forecasts were an important factor for both documents, he said. “We have to make sure we are planning for where we are going to get those increases.”

Council has considered a range of figures from census data collected by the Australian Bureau of Statistics. According to the data, the current population of the peninsula was estimated at 152,981. It is predicted this will grow to 185,702 by 2031. The over-60s age group is expected to grow by more than 15,000 by 2031. Mr Cowley said the first impact of an ageing population was a demand for aged care facilities. “We’re getting more retirement village developments in Mornington, which is consistent with current demands,” he said. Mr Cowley said demographic profiling enabled the shire to provide appropriate services for the public. “That’s something we coordinate with social planning services.

“We need to see how different towns already stack up for access to services.” The strategic plan key goals to “improve community facilities” and promote “healthy, safe and connected communities” highlight the shire’s age-specific and family initiatives. Mr Cowley said housing development was a major project for the shire in the coming year. He said the shire had received input from the state government on housing initiatives such as the Southern Regional Housing Statement, which would ensure development occurred in the right areas. “We need to accommodate projected growth over the period to 2030,” Mr Cowley said. “It’s a question of whether [housing] is matching up with the changing

population and age profile.” Current projections estimate significant growth will occur in the Mornington, Moorooduc and Tuerong areas, with 2289 new dwellings expected by 2031. The Rosebud, Rosebud West, McCrae, Boneo, Fingal and Cape Schanck areas would have an estimated 16,240 dwellings by 2031. Mr Cowley said growth areas need to be considered individually. “We often say it’s not a ‘one size fits all’. The shire has a very strong commitment to [maintaining] urban growth boundaries.” He said growth and development in peninsula townships must occur in line with individual qualities and natural landscape. “We don’t necessarily use the phrase

‘urban design’ because it implies urban and suburban development,” he said. “We’re trying to look at each town and establish what’s important to its character.” The strategic plan’s “Liveable Peninsula” goal aims to protect and promote region-specific development that recognises local heritage and landscape. “Enhancing public places and spaces” and “improving community facilities” were strategic plan goals that aimed to provide services and amenities accessible to all residents. The shire invites public submissions on the draft strategic plan and proposed budget, both of which are available on its website, mornpen.vic.gov.au

Cash for kids, jobless THE state government has promised $132,000 for two projects in the Hastings electorate. A project called “Building a Supportive Community” will receive $100,000 and $32,000 will go to “Career Kick Start”. Hastings MP Neale Burgess said the projects would be for the Hastings Neighbourhood Renewal area. “The initiatives are aimed at tackling pockets of disadvantage in the community,” he said. “Building a Supportive Community will employ a parent and family engagement worker,” he said. “In partnership with Good Shepherd Youth and Family Services, the worker will engage with families in the West Park area to enhance children’s learning and development. “Other project partners include Hastings Westpark primary, Hastings primary, St Mary’s primary, Western Port Rotary, Hastings Neighbourhood Renewal, Mornington Peninsula Shire early years services and Peninsula Health’s Community Health unit.” He said Career Kick Start would be run from Hastings Hub and “employ a project officer to de-

liver a weekly pre-employment program, where participants will receive targeted career advice and job preparation support as well as employability and life skills training”. Housing Minister Wendy Lovell said the funding for the Hastings projects was part of more than $500,000 in state government money to boost and support communities. “The money consists of $420,000 for 12 projects in neighbourhood renewal areas and $114,000 for six urban renewal initiatives,” Ms Lovell said. “The grants will see communities work closely with the public and community sectors to create programs that tackle the issues – in community building, infrastructure and employment support – that the community has identified as being important to them. “The government believes in tackling the root causes of disadvantage in partnership with the local community and the funded projects in this package are an important part of this. “I look forward to seeing these projects grow and develop.”

Pool ‘conflict’ case adjourned By Mike Hast THE investigation of a shire councillor over alleged conflict of interest remains unresolved. Cr Graham Pittock appeared in Dromana Magistrates’ Court last Thursday to answer two charges brought by the Local Government Inspectorate that he had breached the Local Government Act. The inspectorate is the local council watchdog. It is alleged Cr Pittock had a conflict of interest when he voted on the multi-million dollar Southern Peninsula Aquatic Centre (SPA), proposed to be built on the Rosebud foreshore. The charges allege the Seawinds Ward councillor voted at council meetings on 12 March last year and 12 June, a two-part meeting that was completed on 18 June. The case was adjourned and is unlikely to return to court for at least two months. The case hinges on an anonymous complaint from within the shire council about Cr Pittock voting on SPA. It has been alleged Cr Pittock had a conflict of interest as he owns a gymnasium in Dromana and SPA will include a gym. A larger gymnasium was added to the SPA complex last June when councillors voted to expand the aquatic centre from 4800 to 6800 square metres. A council insider said the complaint against Cr Pittock was revenge for the SPA public meeting he and Cr Tim Rodgers organised in May 2012 at

Rosebud Memorial Hall. It was also designed to force Cr Pittock to abstain from voting on future SPA matters. The council had earlier refused to conduct a SPA “roadshow” to explain the project to residents and ratepayers. More than 250 people packed memorial hall on Friday 4 May with pro-foreshore pool residents waving placards and jeering anti-foreshore speakers, many of whom said they wanted a pool but not on the shire’s preferred location. It was the first public meeting about SPA since the shire was given permission in early 2012 by state environment minister Ryan Smith to build on the foreshore. The aquatic centre has been a controversial issue within the council with councillors locked 6-5 in favour of the foreshore site. Multiple meetings have seen various aspects of SPA pushed through with a one-vote majority. Cr Pittock would not answer questions from The News about the conflict of interest allegations and the court case but said he had consistently voted to stop the pool going on the foreshore as he believed there were better sites. Investigations into alleged conflict of interest of councillors are known to take up to a year. Cr Pittock opened his Tonic squash and gym in Collins St, Dromana, in early 2012. It has eight courts, gym equipment and a cafe. Cr Pittock operated squash courts and a gym in Dromana 1980-85, but

closed it when the popularity of squash declined. Planning of Tonic started several years ago. Oddly, the anonymous complaint did not include allegation of conflict over Cr Pittock’s cafe. SPA also will have a cafe. There are about 20 gyms and fitness centres between Dromana and Rye

in the SPA “catchment” area. A spokesperson for the inspectorate said public comments were not made about ongoing investigations.  The Local Government Inspectorate received no funding in the May state budget with it being reported that several current and future courts cases re-

garding breaches of the Local Government Act could be in jeopardy. A Napthine government spokesman reportedly said it would “soon make further announcements regarding the future of local government compliance and inspectorate functions, as part of the broader integrity framework’’.

Thieves target school computers BURGLARIES at Osborne and Mt Martha primary schools are the latest in a string of night burglaries at Mornington Peninsula schools. At least six schools have been raided in recent weeks – two in Mornington, one in Dromana, one in Hastings and one in Mt Martha. Detective Senior Constable Rohan Brock of Mornington police said thieves appeared to be targeting IT equipment, including tablets and laptop computers, which were easy to sell on the black market. Five teenagers from Mornington and Frankston were charged over one of the recent burglaries at a Mornington school. A woman was charged over a breakin at Hastings Primary School. The latest thefts occurred at Osborne and Mt Martha schools over the weekend of 25-26 May. Detective Brock said Osborne was burgled about 8.30pm on Saturday 25 May. Thieves broke into the school and stole an overhead projector.

“They just ripped it out of the ceiling,” he said. It was the second time Osborne had been burgled in May. Over the weekend of 11 and 12 May, thieves smashed windows to gain access and stole five Apple Mac laptop computers. Later the same night, about 3.30am on Sunday 26 May, thieves forced a window and broke into the Mt

Martha Primary School. Two iPad tablets and an iMac desktop computer were stolen. Police released an image of two youths caught on security cameras at the school at the time of the thefts (pictured). Anyone with information can contact Mornington police on 5970 4900 or Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000. Jo Winterbottom

By Mike Hast MORNINGTON Peninsula Shire is confident its traffic and parking plans for the Archibald Prize finalists exhibition starting in Mornington on Friday will allow a well-managed flow of people. The shire’s communications manager Todd Trimble said its “comprehensive traffic management planâ€? included signs for drivers showing where to park at or near Mornington Peninsula Regional Gallery in Civic Reserve off Dunns Rd. “We are confident the plans ‌ will ensure parking and traffic issues are well managed but will monitor the situation during the exhibition and make any adjustments that might be required,â€? he said. The shire is building a crushed rock overflow car parking area that was due to be completed last Friday. Mr Trimble said it was constructed on land near where the new tennis courts would go and would remain after the exhibition as additional parking for the reserve. The new parking area is in the northeast corner of the reserve near Mornington-Tyabb Rd. There is limited parking near the gallery. Other parts of the reserve have gravel parking areas. The gallery has billed the exhibition as “Australia’s most extraordinary art eventâ€?. “[The gallery] will be the only venue in Victoria to present this popular exhibition in both 2013 and 2014.â€? The Archibald show at TarraWarra Museum of Art last year drew more than 50,000 people to Healesville and

Courtyard memorial: Gay Ellis with her grandchildren in the new courtyard at Frankston Hospital that honours the memory of her husband’s generosity.

Legacy set in concrete VOICES were hushed as senior theatre nurse Gay Ellis was escorted into Frankston Hospital for the unveiling of a secret project under way for the past 12 months. Her friends, family and colleagues were there on Monday to witness the unveiling of a renovated theatre courtyard built as a memorial to her late husband Gary Ellis. In 1987 Mr Ellis, a concreter, arranged for some of his friends and colleagues to build a concrete helipad. Mrs Ellis had been with the hospital for more than 25 years and had complained to him about the difficulty of getting patients in trolleys across the grass helipad. The concrete helipad was removed to make way for the new 560-space multi-storey car park but the

helipad and his generosity had not been forgotten. The courtyard’s central feature is a sculpture with a piece of the original helipad and a replica helicopter with a plaque honouring Mr Ellis. The replica helicopter was donated by Frankston Men’s Shed whose members spent six months hand-carving it from a piece of driftwood that washed up from Western Port. Theatre technician Jason Walker and his team built the courtyard in their own time, managing to keep the project a secret from Mrs Ellis up until the unveiling. “The beauty of the theatre courtyard project is that it came about exactly the same way as Gary’s original project – the community helping the community,” Frankston Hospital executive director Brendon Gardner said.

Point ‘needs heritage listing’ By Keith Platt A CALL for Point Nepean to be world heritage listed has coincided with the state government’s bid to introduce 99-year leases for national park land. The government is already inviting suggestions from within Australia and overseas on how it can develop and make money from commercial enterprises at the 560-hectare Point Nepean National Park near Portsea. The call for expressions of interest follows the release earlier this month of a master plan outlining uses for the 178-hectare quarantine station precinct in the park. Echoes of a draft master plan drawn up while the federal governmentappointed Point Nepean Community Group – headed by Macquarie Bank executive Simon McKeon – managed the point remain in the latest publication. “Obviously I have been watching with a great deal of enthusiasm; I still love the place,” Mr McKeon told The News. “But I have no formal involvement.” Mr McKeon said Point Nepean “ticks all the boxes” required for a world heritage listing. A former Australian of the Year, Mr McKeon said Victoria was the only state without a world heritage listed national park. “Everything [the community group] did was consistent with helping achieve that listing. Lord Howe Island is heritage listed as is the Great Barrier Reef,” Mr McKeon said. “I was always in favour of Point Nepean being a national park.”

Flinders MP Greg Hunt said he supported world heritage listing for Point Nepean “given its extraordinary cultural, historic and natural values”. “In terms of the vacant buildings at the quarantine station, my own view has been unwavering in support of marine and coastal education as a foundation use.” Victorian National Parks Association spokesman Simon Branigan said winning world heritage listing for Point Nepean was not his main concern. “The option of Point Nepean becoming a world heritage area is something that could be considered in the future, but our immediate concern is that the national park’s natural and cultural values are properly managed and respected, and that inappropriate development is avoided,” he said. Mr McKeon compared the state’s call for expressions of interest to a fishing expedition. He was not concerned about a lack of height limits in the master plan and said he expected the government would speak about heritage values to would-be developers or investors behind closed doors. Mr McKeon said he had been contacted by three people wanting to meet him and talk about Point Nepean. No meetings had been held and, as he was going overseas for two weeks, “I wouldn’t be surprised if they haven’t evaporated” by the time he returned in June. Mr McKeon said a couple of the phone inquiries “made no sense – they seemed quite naïve about the real challenges down there”.

New hotel A NEW hotel has opened on the southern peninsula – Hotel Mercure Portsea Golf Club and Resort. The 24-room, four-star hotel was developed by Portsea Golf Club as part of an integrated multi-million dollar project incorporating a new clubhouse, accommodation and function complex. The hotel at 46 London Bridge Rd, Portsea, is being operated by Accor Hotels, which has 3800 hotels worldwide including 30 in Victoria. It has views of Port Phillip, and includes a restaurant and a conference area for up to 300 people. Duncan Mars has been appointed hotel manager. He said a number of weddings and conferences had been booked before the opening.

Sea views: Heritage-listed buildings at Point Nepean with expansive views of Port Phillip could be exceeded in height by nearby developments.

Mr McKeon, who heads a consortium planning to build a new chairlift at Arthurs Seat, the highest point on the Mornington Peninsula, said he was not involved in any proposals for developments at Point Nepean. He said Werribee Mansion was “the best yardstick in Victoria” of the commercial use of a heritage-listed building. But there were differences between Point Nepean and Werribee, including the mansion’s closeness to Melbourne. “Point Nepean is a lot richer and has a lot more to offer.” Victoria Tourism Industry Council chief executive Dianne Smith on Wednesday said “appropriate development” would open Point Nepean “for more people to enjoy and bring many economic benefits to the region”. Allowing private sector investment in sensitive and appropriate tour-

Olympic Park plan

ism infrastructure in national parks “brings Victoria into line with most other Australian states and will allow us to add even greater depth to already impressive nature-based tourism offering”. Long a point of contention between Victoria and the federal government, the former defence land and officers’ training school was put under state control in 2009. Expressions of interest are being sought from businesses and groups for developments that will fit the aims of the latest master plan, which has been criticised for being non-specific about building heights and activities. It also appears the government would consider leasing out all or part of the historic 17-hectare quarantine station precinct, which contains about 50 buildings, some with historic or heritage significance.

RESIDENTS can have a say about the long-term master plan for Olympic Park Reserve in Rosebud. Mornington Peninsula Shire is updating its 2003 plan for the precinct, which includes a treed section on the north side of the shire offices. The reserve has three sports grounds, including the town’s main football and cricket oval, and could also include open space for “passive recreation” and walking-bicycle trails.

Positioned for peace and quiet NESTLED well away from main roads, with hardly a sound to be heard but the rustle of gum trees and the chirpping of the birds, this striking and handsome ranch-style home is on a level one-hectare block. The home is double brick and is beautifully presented. A paved driveway leads up to a double tandem-length carport under the roof line of the home which, along with the wide verandahs, measures about 354 square metres (38 square). From this end of the home you enter into a large laundry, with other wet areas including a separate powder room and a main bathroom that would cater for two bedrooms further down the hall. A third bedroom is off the main open-plan living area, that also has tiled floors and features handy hideaway storage in one corner. There is airconditioning and ducted heating throughout, with a pot-belly stove for cosy winter nights and with the double brick as an insulator, the home would be comfortable all year round. In addition to the casual living zone there is a splendid formal lounge and dining room â&#x20AC;&#x201C; with an open fireplace â&#x20AC;&#x201C; that can be closed off from the rest of the house. In between these two areas is the kitchen that has a dishwasher, walk-in pantry and an upright stove with gas hotplates connected to a gas cylinder outside. The kitchen looks out to a paved entertaining area that is surrounded by ferns. At the far end of the home is the main bedroom that has access to the verandah and also features a walk-through robe to a large ensuite that also has air-conditioning. The property has a host of external features that would please the tradesman or home business operator. There are several outbuildings, the largest of which is a two-room bungalow and a large steel shed with a concrete floor and power. There is dual access off Wellington Road and two paddocks could accommodate a few head of livestock. There are four water tanks with a total capacity of 45,000 litres. As clean as a whistle and perfectly presented, this tranquil and inviting homestead is a delight.

OPINION

Errors a bad start, but it gets worse COMMENT By David Harrison A SINKING feeling overcomes the reasonable reader of Mornington Peninsula Shire documents that make such basic mistakes as misnaming a shire advisory group, then compounding this elementary error by misdescribing the group. This is what occurred in the shire report to councillors recommending they approve a large apartment block in Wattle Place, McCrae, at a recent development committee meeting. The council refused the application. The Mornington Peninsula Shire Design Advisory Panel (DAP) is first described as the “Design Assessment Panel”, then as the “Development Assessment Panel”. Later the first error is repeated. Never was it given its correct name. What are councillors and the paying public – including at least 234 objectors – expected to make of such sloppiness? What indeed are members of the design advisory panel supposed to make of this casual, easily avoidable, insult? There will be some people, councillors among them, who would dismiss this as mere nit-picking. Would they similarly dismiss shire officers incorrectly describing this panel as “an external expert panel”? According to a shire document, the DAP “consists of a number of external members, including the chair, and the council DAP coordinator or other council officer acting in an advisory

role” (Mornington Peninsula Design Advisory Panel guidelines on roles and responsibilities, November 2008). Section 5, “Appointment and remuneration of members”, makes it clear the DAP is appointed and paid by the shire, which selects the chair. The shire can get rid of any member “should it determine, for any reason, that the panel membership should be modified”. External? Hardly. Independent? Arguable. The DAP positions are at the discretion of the shire. Before dealing further with the report to councillors – it matters not that they rejected the recommendation to approve the application – a look at the DAP report to shire planners yields some interesting facts. First, it explains that “due to time constraints, a formal meeting was not held” with only two of the three-member panel present at the meeting held at RMIT University. Fact: it met on 19 December and reported on 8 January for a council meeting held on 15 April. What was the rush? Were the stipulated monthly meetings held in January, February and March? Did they further discuss their report? Second, the DAP “reviewed the project using the documentation provided in the applicant’s planning application”. Question: Would a review of only the developer’s material have helped the DAP arrive at an objective conclusion?

Third, “The DAP was advised that the development was generally permissible under the planning controls pertaining to the site” but that council “might have concerns over the intensity of the development in this particular location”. Observation: If so, the concerns had vanished like the morning mist by the time officers wrote this report. And the assurance that “the development was generally permissible” is arguable, to say the least. Fact: A shire strategic planning officer did not support the proposal and is quoted in the officers’ report saying that “in view of the three-storey built form and the location of the development in a local activity centre, the issue of whether the proposal is excessive/ inappropriate needs to be carefully considered”. He went on to state: “The built form of the proposal also needs to be considered from a wider strategic planning perspective, that is, in the context of the hierarchy of activity centres on the peninsula.” This “hierarchy”, contained in an official councillor-approved shire document, nominates details such as maximum height of buildings in towns around the peninsula. McCrae was given a limit of 8 metres. The proposed apartment development is 13.1 metres and, it could be argued, is not three but four storeys, with a roof terrace that contains a substantial building. The council officer report talks of

“the top of the common rooftop area on the fourth level” but “this element” is set well back “so will not be overly visible from the either Wattle Place or Point Nepean Road”. So the “fourth level” is pretty much invisible: that’s all right then. The strategic planner appears to have been included as an “Aunt Sally”, to be knocked down. Back to the design advisers. With a principal role as, funnily enough, design advisers, one would expect to see details of their appraisal of the applicant’s architecture included in the officers’ report. Nope. This didn’t advance the case that was put to gain approval for the development. The report accentuated the positive – “the proposed use and density are acceptable”; the landscaping was appropriate; “... a suitable transition” from commercial activities to residences. And so on. Omitted was what the design advisers said: “We are concerned that ... laundry facilities are located within the living room areas ... possible accidental water overflow”; the east and southeast elevation “have an accidental appearance”; garage doors “have an unfortunate industrial appearance”; the need to deal with “...visual blankness”; question as to whether the developer will “provide established trees” of the size depicted. And so on. It is impossible to escape the strong feeling that the shire was advocating for this development rather than providing councillors with the dispassion-

ate, objective and neutral presentation to which councillors are entitled. It dismisses with an airy wave such tiny matters as a landscape requirement half of the standard and the huge breach of the height limit. More seriously, it effectively laughs at the councillors’ approval of hierarchy standards – contained in an application now with the state government to make them part of shire planning law. The officers argue, with risible logic, that since the approval has not yet been granted, “the proposed [planning scheme] amendment cannot be considered as ‘seriously entertained’. Therefore, no statutory weight can be given to the proposed amendment in the assessment of this application”. Well, it was seriously entertained by councillors. Thus does the shire treat the considerations of our councillors. And how does the report treat residents? The selfish devils who live around Wattle Court have on average 2.3 people to a house, with 24.5 per cent being single occupants. Worse, “83.1 per cent ... have three or more bedrooms and 94.8 per cent are separate or detached dwellings”. Monstrous – how dare they live as they choose! One visualises the officers who wrote this report, as well as their superiors, throwing open their spare bedrooms to the poor and needy. Wait until they produce a similar report on the largely unoccupied holiday mansions of Portsea.

100 YEARS AGO THIS WEEK...

Serious storm warning issued to all, meteor lights up the skies Compiled by Matt Vowell From the pages of the Mornington Standard, June 7th 1913. MR Clement Wragge has issued the following warning:- “The Antarctic disturbance Hector is over the forties, south from the Great Bight. As soon as he rounds Tasmania and Gabo, and becomes free from the influence of the land, Hector will most probably develop an extension in a tongue like form down the New South Wales coast into the lower latitudes. This will produce a renewal of the nasty south westerly to southerly weather, with more rain south from Trial Bay, and strong westerlies at Brisbane. The Victorian and Tasmanian coasts may also expect another doing. Hector will affect New Zealand within twelve hours, and Wellington and Cook Strait especially will have cause to remember him.’’ *** A magnificent meteor was seen in the South the other evening. It lighted up the sky during its rapid flight. The ball appeared of bluish tint, while the edge had a yellow tinge. *** GREAT interest is being taken in the skating organised by the Hastings hall committee. The hall is generally crowded, and the committee are reaping substantial profits from each session. *** THE balance sheet of the recent ball held in aid of the Frankston Fire Brigade show the receipts as £10 7s 6d, and expenditure £5 17s 9d, leaving a credit balance of £4 9s 9d. *** AT the Frankston Court of Petty Sessions, held on Monday last, before

Messrs Clements and Crawford, several cases of arrears of rates were brought on by the Shire of Frankston and Hastings. In each case the shire obtained a verdict with costs. *** TENNIS players are reminded of the annual meeting of the Frankston Tennis Club, to be held in the local hall on Wednesday evening next, to which members and intending members are given a cordial invitation. *** A GRAND euchre party and dance (the proceeds of which are in aid of the local Brass Band) will be held in the Frankston hall on Monday evening next, 9th June. Mrs A. Millard is the hon. sec., which should be sufficient guarantee that a pleasant evening will be spent by patrons. *** MR Arthur Douglas, who amused the audience at the Frankston Choral Society’s concert, has been appearing at the Opera House, with or great success. *** WE inadvertently omitted the names of Mr J. B Jolly, Mr Di Gillio and Mr G. W. Booth from the list of patrons of the Frankston Choral Society in our report of the Society’s annual meeting last issue. *** THE many friends of Mrs J. J Smidt, of Wattle Grove, Shoreham, will be pleased to hear that she is returning home much improved in health after an extended holiday in Western Australia. *** MR W. H. Walker, of Finley, in New South Wales, and Mr Alfred Burton, of Euroa, have each purchased a building

allotment in Playne Street, Frankston, and it is their intention to build on their respective blocks for the coming summer season. *** THE many friends and well wishers of Mrs H. L. Smidt will be pleased to hear that Mrs Smidt and family are enjoying an extended holiday at Mr Smidt’s late father’s residence, Wattle Grove Shoreham. *** MR J. Watt of Hastings, as been appointed by the State Executive as a Justice of the Peace for the Central Bailiwick. *** THE Rev Father O’Hagan, who has for the past month been enjoying a well earned rest in Sydney and other parts, has returned to Mornington, and is (we are pleased to state) greatly benefited by his holiday. *** ON the Saturday evening prior to the departure of Mr J. Nott Marsh to Tasmania on a ten weeks’ business trip, some of his Frankston friends met at his office, and Cr Ritchie, in a short speech, wished him bon voyage and presented him with a handsome silver-mounted pipe, engraved with the initials of the recipient. Mr Marsh suitably responded. *** MR Harold Dial, son of Mr and Mrs P. Dial, of Frankston arrived at his home on Thursday, after an absence of several months. Mr Dial is engaged as an engineer on the Eumeralla which has been engaged in trading between Brisbane and northern ports. It is expected that Mr Dial’s boat will be in port for some little time. ***

THERE was a splendid attendance at the Balnarring Hall on 20th May, at the “send-off” accorded to Mr and Mrs Doherty, formerly stationmaster at Bittern, now at Moorabbin. Mr Doherty was presented with a gold watch and Mrs Doherty with a purse of sovereigns. The farewell arrangements were in the capable hands of Cr Dave Buckley. *** THE Mornington Loyal League celebrations have now about £39 in hand, and will celebrate the King’s Birthday (Monday next) by holding a monster picnic and sports in the local park. All children from the schools at Mornington, Moorooduc, Osborne and Mount Eliza will assemble at the Mornington State School at 12.30, and (headed by the Frankston Brass Band) will march to the park, where a very interesting and amusing sports programme will be carried out. At 2.30 the flag will be saluted, and patriotic addresses will be delivered by the Hon A. Downward, MLA, the clergy, and other prominent citizens. When the sports programme is completed everyone on the ground will be invited to partake of afternoon tea. In the evening a bioscope entertainment (free to children) will be held in the Mechanics’ Institute, special arrangements having been made with Mr Marchant, whose picture shows have been so highly appreciated throughout the district. Everyone welcome. *** THE monthly meeting of the Fruitgrowers’ Association was held on Tuesday night of last week There was only a moderate attendance of growers. Mr Chas. Grant was nominated for the position of president, and Mr Geo. Thornell vice-president; Mr Gee.

Keast, treasurer; Mr S. S. Gault, secre tary; and Messrs J. J W. Caldwell and Geo. Reed, auditors. Accounts to the amount of £12 12s was passed for payment. A committee was appointed to arrange for the annual meeting when the members of the Ladies’ Guild are expected to be present. It was decided to hold the annual meeting first and then entertain the ladies afterwards. *** NEVER before has Somerville witnessed such a polling day as last Saturday. The threatened rain came down in real earnest most of the day. This did not damp the enthusiasm of the electors, for they turned up almost to a man and woman. It is stated that 375 recorded their votes, and only 15 did not put in an appearance. Some of these were absentees, and some too ill to attend. Despite the cold, wet weather six or seven old residents, over 80 years of age, came and did their duty to their country at the polling booth. Some ladies prostrated by sickness got out of bed to vote. Conveyances were available all day for the use of electors. Never has such a complete canvas of the district taken place. The various Liberal parties had made every arrangement to ensure a large poll, and their energies were rewarded by the results in number last Saturday. Mr Jas. Caldwell was assistant returning officer, and Mr Louis Cole polling clerk. Both Liberal and Labor had scrutineers. *** COLD, damp weather still continues, and out of door work is somewhat retarded. Residents generally will be glad of a little sunshine instead of this persistent rain.

Good time to think not do By Frances Cameron ON cold, grey days you don’t often feel like getting out into your garden. These days can be a really good excuse to sit inside, take a good look at your garden through the windows and work out what needs to be done. All the leaves from deciduous trees in your neighbourhood that end up in drifts in corners, or any other nooks and crannies, can be gathered into big gardening bags. Mix through a couple of handfuls of blood and bone, tie up the tops and store them somewhere for the next couple of months. By the time spring comes around, the blood and bone should have helped them to start breaking down into a nice crumbly mixture for you to add to your garden beds. Some deciduous plants can be propagated with hardwood cuttings, a process that can be performed now when they are coming into dormancy. Plants that can be propagated like this are weigela (usually W. florida), berberis (B. thunbergia), and kerria (K. japonica) along with most hydrangea species. This process involves getting cuttings from the current year’s growth that are about 15cm long and have at least 3 or 4 healthy buds near the top. Make the bottom cut straight and the top cut on an angle facing away from the closest bud. The cuttings can then be placed either in a trench in the ground, which has been dug over so the soil isn’t lumpy, or in a pot using a good quality potting mix. If you are planting into the ground, make a trench as long as you need and about 8 to 10 cm deep then put some washed river sand in the bottom to a depth of about 2cm; the sand will aid in the formation of roots. Place the cuttings into the trench and backfill the

soil. The cuttings can take up to two months to form roots big enough to allow transferring the cuttings to their own pots. Spring flowering bulbs, corms and tubers like daffodils, grape hyacinth, anemone, brodiaea and tulips should be in the ground or pots by now, and some of the earlier flowering bulbs should be starting to pop their heads up above the surface of the soil. If you neglected to give them some food at planting time, you can still sprinkle a bit of blood and bone around them now, but otherwise wait until they have flowered before feeding them again. Feeding them as their flowers fade gives the bulbs energy to store for their next growing season. Keep the areas around them weed-free and mulched with a light covering such as pea straw to protect them over winter. Transplanting can be done now, as long as the soil isn’t too wet. The key to doing this successfully is to prepare well before shifting the plant. Dig and prepare the new hole first, have a good supply of water ready to water it in and cutting tools ready to cut it back at the same time; reducing the leaf surface area will reduce the risk of the plant going into shock through loss of moisture. Remember to prune the top of the plant to about the same size as the root ball. There are plenty of beautiful plants in flower throughout early winter, grevillea such as G. ‘Honey gem’ and G. ‘Jessie Cadwell’ flower most of the year. Other natives such as banksia ericifolia and the pincushion hakea (Hakea laurina), one of my favourites, are flowering now as well. Get into your neighbourhood and find them. Happy hunting.

Bard and I: how Shakespeare was saved By Stuart McCullough I COULD have been anything. Doctor, fireman, semi-professional pig-wrangler – you name it. Had I half a mind, I could have hosted Celebrity Splash, even if it rendered me overqualified. Life, by its very nature, is full of unexplored opportunities; roads less travelled because fate’s GPS system has seen fit to take you elsewhere. But of all the things I could have been, there is one road less travelled that has more lanes than any other and stretches tantalisingly over the horizon. I could have been an actor. There are lots of different techniques when it comes to acting. There’s the Lee Strasberg Actors Studio Method in which you exploit every ounce of trauma you ever experienced, channelling it into your performance. Then there’s the “keep still, move your lips and try not to fall over” approach so often deployed by models seeking to become actors. Neither appealed. Instead, I invented my own brand of acting, relying on costumes that were deceptively simple yet allowed me to create complex characters of a kind all too rarely seen on our stages. There is no better example of my astounding technique than my first performance in a Shakespeare play. Let’s face it, by the mid 1980s Shakespeare was in a whole lot of

trouble. His plays struggled to resonate with an audience hungry for theatre as long as it was composed by Andrew Lloyd Webber and, if possible, performed on rollerskates. Hamlet has a lot going for it but there are precious few musical numbers, to say nothing of a near-phobic absence of skates. As a result, the works of the English language’s greatest playwright were in danger of being lost forever. Someone needed to step in. I simply hadn’t expected that someone to be me. My school decided to do a production of Macbeth. This, it must be said, is the equivalent of the local tennis

club deciding to build an unmanned spacecraft in order to launch its own satellite or the Rotary club declaring that it intends to start drilling for oil in the supermarket car park. Ambitious is an understatement. Undeterred by the complexity of the work and the potential for disaster, auditions were conducted in the school hall. Mostly, the older kids tried out for the plum roles. Being in year 8, even I knew the odds were against me being given the title job but I could never have expected the theatrical bounty that was about to come my way. Shakespeare was responsible for a great many memorable characters.

Othello, King Lear and many others I presently can’t recall will never be forgotten. Some, however, are tragically underrated. But among a plethora of under-appreciated roles, there are none so hopelessly overlooked as the role of Fleance. The problems start with the name. Who, in their right mind, would ever call a child Fleance? It sounds like something your dog gets. It certainly doesn’t strike me as very Scottish. None of the Bay City Rollers were called Fleance. Granted, it would be a wonderful thing had teenage girls in the 1970s gone crazy for Les, Derek, Woody and Fleance but it was not to be. For those not familiar with him, Fleance is the son of Banquo and only has two lines in the whole thing before escaping while his father (*spoiler alert!*) is brutally murdered. With so little to work with, I clearly had a major challenge on my hands. Nineteen eighty-five was the age of acid wash and it was clear that to bring Fleance to life, I would need a costume. For some reason, I had always associated Shakespearean characters with tights. But tights leave little to the imagination and, quite frankly, seem an unlikely choice for 11th century Scotland. You can’t, on the one hand, be a paranoid regicidal tyrant and, on the other, look like you’re on the way back from an aerobics class. No matter, having grown up in Tyabb, the

idea of donning a pair of tights, even if it was to perform Shakespeare, was simply too much for me. Instead, I devised a costume that enabled me to do so much more than inhabit the role and become Fleance himself. At the heart of my sartorially led transformation was my decision to borrow my father’s brown tracksuit pants. They had seen better days, mostly on the weekends, but were structurally sound. I thought they were ideal for the role in that they were brown. I felt as though brown would have been very popular in 11th century Scotland. To complete my transformation from 13-year-old student to Shakespearean actor, I also wore gumboots. My metamorphosis was complete. It’s fair to say that the performance was revelatory. Critics used to seeing try-hards attempt to breath life into the works of the Bard had their minds well and truly blown by the sight of Fleance in gumboots. The combination of Shakespeare’s dazzling prose and pants with an elasticised waist helped drag Macbeth into the 20th century. I could have continued, I guess. Hamlet in ugg boots, The Merchant of Venice in a poncho. But I didn’t want to get carried away. The most important thing about acting is knowing exactly when to leave the stage. www.stuartmccullough.com

PROPOSED TRIAL CLOSURE OF FOOTPATH LINK BETWEEN MIRABELLA COURT & FRANKSTONFLINDERS ROAD, HASTINGS Mornington Peninsula Shire has been in discussions with local Hastings residents from Mirabella Court and surrounding streets regarding the pedestrian link at the end of Mirabella Court. This short section of footpath between Mirabella Court and the Frankston Flinders Road footpath currently acts to provide connectivity for residents into the housing area located adjacent to this section of Frankston-Flinders Road. Concerns have been raised about inappropriate behaviour occurring in this Mirabella Court pedestrian link involving vandalism, littering, unauthorised use by motor vehicles on the walkway, noise and general unsociable behaviour. As such, Mornington Peninsula Shire is proposing a trial closure via fencing of this pedestrian link to reduce the occurrence of inappropriate behaviour for the affected residents. The Shire is interested in hearing views from the wider community about the trial closure. Written submissions regarding this proposal will be considered by Council in accordance with Section 223 of the Local Government Act and should be sent to the Mornington Peninsula Shire Council, Private Bag 1000, Rosebud 3939 or via email to Edward.Pocock@ mornpen.vic.gov.au. These submissions should be provided to the Shire before the 28th June 2013, after which date the fencing will be erected for a six month period. For more information, please call 5950 1030.

Tigers maul Panthers with 33 scoring shots to one, Blues season over NEPEAN LEAGUE By Andrew ‘Toe Punt’ Kelly Dromana restricted Devon Meadows to just one goal in two hours of football on Saturday in Nepean League. The Panthers had to wait until the final quarter to kick their first score of the entire afternoon, while the opposition had 33 shots on goal. In was old fashioned hiding. The Tigers won 21.12-138 to 1.4-10. It was as one sided as the scoreboard suggested, once again the Panthers going on the defensive from the first bounce. It was a ploy that shocked Dromana coach Gavin Artico. “The word was that Devon Meadows was playing a little more attacking football in recent weeks after their good win against Somerville. “On Saturday they pushed numbers back in their droves. At one stage it felt as though every single one of their players was in our forward half. “I was forced to go man-on-man just so we could work out who was on who. “It was fascinating on one hand but disappointing on the other. “Our guys played fantastic footy from the word go but it would have been better if the opposition tried to win, rather than defending a loss,” Artico said. The Tigers wheeled out their new recruit, Stuart Cleeve, a key position player from Noble Park who signed with the club a fortnight ago. He is the second Noble boy to join the club this season after ruckman Michael Falconer signed in the pre-season also. Paul Minchington and Dan Gormley booted four goals each for the winners, while Adam Coyle was elevated to the seniors and played a fantastic game with two goals. Vice-Captain Ryan Slocombe was also dominant, while Dan Guerts and Micky Hunter provided plenty of run. Alex Doria and Pat Harmes were the best of the Panthers, getting plenty of ball in the backline. Ash Adams was the solitary goal kicker. Rosebud dragged itself out of the horror it was in, smashing Pearcedale to the tune of 78 points. The Buds have been in shocking form in recent times and needed a big scalp to get their season back on track. Pearecdale was nestled in fourth position on the ladder and certainly proved to be the scalp the Buds needed to get. The Panthers did go into the match without their biggst drawcard in attack and the competition’s leading goal kicker, Pat Heijden, however even he wouldn’t have been able to stop the Buds on Saturday. After half-time, the home side was dominant. Only six points separated the sides at the major interval, however, the Buds booted 15 goals to four after the break. Greg Bentley was absolutely superb for the winners with six goals, while Matty Payne and Chris Dew finished with three goals each. Jack Jarman provided a heap of run and Daniel Giarusso was also at the top of his game. Pat Cadd booted four for the Panthers and was one of his team’s

best, while Chris Hensby and Luke Murray also worked hard in the back half, along with Trav Sauer. Ben Mitchell was back too after a hip injury. Rosebud was back to its best. Frankston Bombers sit at the top of the ladder after smashing Crib Point to the tune of 76 points at Greg Beck Oval. The Bombers opened the game in sensational form and locked away the result with a five goal to zip opening term. By half-time it was 10 goals to four behinds and the contest was finished. Ryan Lonie was at his magical best with four goals for the Bombers while Zac Longham continued his consistency with three. Jay Page was brilliant across half back and Jason Kingsbury and Scott Foster also dominated. It was a tough afternoon for the Pies, Brad Davidson the only multiple goal kicker with two. Matt Sloper and Zac Dekleuver were the Pies’ best. Somerville is just a game and percentage outside of the top five after knocking over Hastings. The season is officially over for the Blues, who went down to the baby Eagles 18.17-125 to 14.7-91. The loss rubbed salt into the Blues wounds after big signing Nick Raines walked out on the club on Thursday night. It made little difference. The Eagles nudged in front in the first quarter, opened up a 21 point break in the second quarter and maintained that for the remainer of the match. Hastings came at the Eagles in the third but the opposition was able to hold sway. Luke Rowe finished with five goals for the Eagles. This kid is going to be a star of the competition in a couple of seasons. Rowan Hogenbirk was also dominant for the Eagles, while Jedd Sutton and Dylan Ryan with three goals were also outstanding. Andy Kiely and Willy Jolley against his old side were the best of the Blues. Red Hill turned its season around and played four very good quarters of football to beat Tyabb. The Hillmen were led by teenager Jarryd Douglas, who finished with five goals, while Tommy Carter played his best game for the club. Ryan Jones and Benny Macguiness were also at the top of their game. The Hillmen won the game in the second quarter when they booted seven goals to four, eventually going on to win 15.18-108 to 11.6-72. Ben Gould and Rohan McGrath were the best of the Yabbies. Sorrento and Rye will play a standalone game in Nepean League this weekend.

Redlegs on a roll, Doggies hit some good form at last PENINSULA LEAGUE By Andrew ‘Toe Punt’ Kelly AFTER a disastrous start to the season, Mt Eliza is right back in contention after taking another bigger scalp in Seaford on Saturday. The Redlegs, who were beaten by a kick in last year’s Peninsula League Grand Final, have knocked over the two top teams in successive weeks after beating Frankston YCW a fortnight ago. After losing the first three games of the season, the Redlegs have now won four of their past five and now sit equal fifth on the ladder. Just percentage separates Karingal in fifth position (114 percent) from the Redlegs in eighth (101 percent). Scott Lockwood was a welcome addition back into the Mt Eliza side on Saturday after being sidelined through suspension and injury. He booted five goals on the weekend and was a key difference between the sides. Mt Eliza was never in any danger of losing the match after opening up a four goal lead at quarter time and extending that to 49 points at the halfway mark of the contest. The final margin was 55 points, 13.9-87 to 3.1432. Rob D’Orazio and David Willet

also came back into the team for the Redlegs, missing the week before against the Stonecats. Josh Norman was again the best player on the ground and is having a magnificent season, along with skipper Jimmy Clayton and Rohan Heasley. Sam Gill was also at the top of his game. Dylan Sloane and Brayden Irving were the best of the Tigers in what was a very disappointing day for them. The Tigers dropped from second place to fourth, again highlighting the evenness of the competition. Mt Eliza coach Jason Watts said his team was still on track to reach the halfway mark of the season with five wins and four losses. “After our poor start to the year, our aim was the reach the middle of the season with five wins. We have beaten Frankston YCW and Seaford and I think we are starting to play some good football,” Watts said. “We still have a long way to go but we are starting to get some continuity in our play and the players we have available. “We really did have an interrupted pre-season and I felt that we would improve once we got into the season. This has certainly been the case,” Watts said.

Pines moved from outside the top five into third place on the ladder after dishing out a hiding to EdithvaleAspendale. Pythons coach Steve Ryan said before the game that it was an “eight point game”, such was the importance. The result was that Pines went a game clear of the Eagles, who dropped to seventh place. Again, the Eagles are just 10 per cent outside the top five. Ryan said that he believed his team’s running game would be the difference between the sides. He proved to be spot-on as the Pythons opened up the Eagles with their run, booting 13 goals and restricting the opposition to just four, 13.10-88 to 4.6-30. The margin was just six points at half-time, however, the Eagles failed to kick a goal in the second half. Pines skipper Jamie Messina was sensational for his side with four goals in a best on ground performance. Shaun White was also at the top of his game in attack with four while runners in Brendan Cowell, Chris Guganovic, Adam Maling and Brendan Neville were superb. Stevey Mannix flew the Eagles flag while Tim Mavric continued his good season.

Bonbeach moved to second place on the table after beating Karingal by five goals, 11.18-84 to 7.12-54. The Sharks zipped away from the Bulls in the second quarter after a tight opening term, Jackson Casey and Ricky Ferraro catalysts in the win. At half-time the margin was 25 points in favor of the Sharks, however, the margin should have been greater considering the visitors booted 3.8 to 1.3 for the term. Jason Gumbleton continued his outstanding season for the Sharks and seasoned campiagners in Shane McDonald, Paul Rebeschini and Mark Tyrrell were dominant. The Bulls never looked like kicking enough goals, although Michael Burke and Steve Charalambous booted a couple each. Jarred Eames, Troy Hoad and Luke Van Raay were among the team’s best. Mornington got back on the winner’s list after three straight losses, knocking over Langwarrin by 20 points. The Doggies trailed for the entire match, however, booted 5.3 to two goals in the last quarter to run out comfortable winners, 10.10-70 to 7.850. The win was important for the

Doggies, especially away from home, however they are still a long way off the footbll they played in the opening four rounds of the season. Mornington is currently in sixth place with a healthy percentage of 110, just four percent behind fifth placed Karingal. Emilio Bitters was the best player on the ground, booting two goals for the winners, while Anthony Simpson booted three to be the major contributor on the ground. Jai Haddock provided plenty of run for the Dogs from the backline and though the middle and Kallum Searle continued his splendid season. Jarryd Amalfi was Langwarrin’s best in his second game back from ankle surgery, while Andrew Withers and Shane Herdman across half back were also very good. Frankston YCW were made to work hard against Chelsea, however still managed a 65-point win, 15.11-101 to 4.12-36. The Gulls were restricted to two goals in each half of footy, while the Stonecats had nine separate goal kickers. Ricky Morris and Michael Chaplin were the major contributors with four each, while David Bodley and Rhys Santon were dominant.
