Join the ‘stars’ for the Record A POP-UP night club opened in Hastings on Friday. Despite the months of planning and attention to detail, The Broken Record has a limited life, with just three more chances left to experience it. The Broken Record is a play by Madeleine Collins, performed by the Pelican Theatre Company and features a whole bunch of stars in bars. The show is the first of Pelican’s three productions for the year, and sees the transformation of Hastings Hall into a night club. The musical includes a singalong and karaoke, all served up with spiders and milkshakes. Members of the audience are being urged to get into the spirit by dressing in styles from the 1940s, 1950s and 1960s. Prizes will be awarded for the best costumes. The Broken Record is at Hastings Hall, 3 High St, at 7.30pm this Friday and 2pm and 7.30pm on Saturday. Tickets are $18 for adults and $15 concession. Bookings: 5979 3202.

Red tape delays heritage fix By Mike Hast MORE than a dozen large windows in the heritage-listed former BP refinery administrative building in Crib Point have not been replaced after vandals went on a rock-throwing spree late last year. Repair has been delayed because the building is on the Victorian Heritage Register and the site’s maintenance contractor, Chris Barber of CAB Contracting, has had to apply for an ex-

emption before repair work can start. There was also a process to gain approval and money from the budget of Crib Point Terminal Pty Ltd, a joint venture between Shell and ExxonMobil that bought the property bounded by Woolleys Rd, The Esplanade and Disney St from BP. The BP refinery was closed and dismantled in 1985 when the British company rationalised its refining activities in Australia.

The vandalism has led the building’s architect, Don Hendry Fulton, to call for security to be beefed up. “There should be CCTV, more powerful security lights and a fence around the building,” the 88-year-old Brighton architect told The News. Mr Fulton, who consults for a Melbourne architect part-time, said Shell had told him several years ago it would build a security fence “but nothing has happened”.

“The building owner has a corporate responsibility to maintain it for the community,” he said. Mr Fulton inspected the damage in early April and notified Mr Barber the building was heritage listed. Police have been unable to find the culprit or culprits, Mr Barber said. Replacement of the windows was expected to start in about a month. A local contractor would take two weeks to do the work.

Mr Barber said the design of the building meant it was not a standard job. The heritage register states the “building features a brick ground floor mounted on a low plinth, a cantilevered glass curtain wall on the first floor overhung by cornice-like eaves and an enclosing colonnade. It was awarded the 1966 RVIA Victorian Architecture Medal”. Continued Pages 10 and 11

Historic Tyabb flagpole lost By Mike Hast TYABB’S war memorial in Central Reserve on the corner of FrankstonFlinders and Mornington-Tyabb roads was refurbished in time for Anzac Day but not everyone was happy with the result. Tyabb and District Ratepayers is upset the old hardwood flagpole was removed and replaced with a modern version that “would look ordinary outside a fast-food outlet”. The group says the historic flagpole from the early 1900s commemorated the death of 18-year-old artilleryman Ernest Benton, a member of the pioneering Tyabb family. On 24 April 1905, Benton was attempting to calm two horses tied to the flagpole. According to the Coroner’s report, the horses pulled back and dragged the flagpole down. It struck Benton on the head and he was killed. He is buried in Tyabb cemetery. The flagpole was first raised on the site of what became the 6th Field Battery Australian Field Artillery gun shed in Hastings. The battery was formed in 1891 to protect Western Port from potential invasion by the Russians, and was armed with four breech-loading, 40-pounder Armstrong cannons, which were pulled by bullocks. After the field battery was disbanded, the flagpole was stored for many years until rediscovered by HastingsWestern Port Historical Society and re-

erected in Tyabb, Benton’s home town. An historic marker was provided by the Benton family in 1984. The flagpole and plaque are recorded in the National Library of Australia archive. The flagpole, plaque and other items were removed for the renovation but the flagpole was not reinstalled. “We have been told by the shire that it was destroyed by the contractor,” a ratepayers’ group spokesperson said. “We’re annoyed the Benton family was not notified and the historical society was not offered the flagpole.” “The plaque was salvaged by some vigilant locals, but without the flagpole it doesn’t really make much sense.” The area’s shire councillor and mayor, Cr Lynn Bowden, said the Central Reserve memorial area was “refurbished as part of the implementation program of the master plan for the reserve”. The shire worked with HastingsSomerville RSL members and Tyabb school children to plant new garden beds surrounding the memorial with red and white roses, Cr Bowden said. “The colour scheme is red, white and blue to symbolise the Australian flag. Red carpet roses, white standard roses, a jacaranda tree and rosemary have been planted.” Seats and a drinking fountain had been installed, and the memorial is lit on three sides. The ratepayers’ spokesperson said

Somerville’s historic war monuments also had been badly treated by local government, in this case the former Shire of Hastings. “The town’s commemorative Avenue of Honour was felled when Eramosa Rd East was widened many years ago, the plaques under each tree were lost, the memorial cannon was sold, the Second World War memorial infant welfare centre’s wrought iron gates with the words ‘Lest We Forget’ were removed and lost, and the land was sold to a supermarket last year.”

Fishing expedition: It’s not a statue but a real great egret heading for a feed from the fish pond. Picture: Jason Richardson

Village faces daily threat from above Western Port

HOUSES in the tiny Japanese village seem miniscule by comparison to the long, black-clawed legs making their way from roof to roof. Every now and then, a long, sharp beak prods the neat gardens on the hillside. The streets appear deserted, no one is venturing out. The village is dominated by a castle, but its gates

remain closed and there’s no sign of armed guards rushing to the villagers’ rescue. The script reads like the worst scenario taken from a B-grade Japanese monster movie. But no, it is real and is happening in a town near you: Hastings. Daily at dawn the bird, a great egret,

descends on the West Park backyard where a carefully created miniature Japanese village sits alongside a small fish pond. The owner has tried hosing the egret, clapping his hands and hollering. But nothing has so far deterred the egret from its fishing expedition. Keith Platt

Halt ordered to cliff clearing By Mike Hast MORNINGTON Peninsula Shire has issued a stop work order for a property at Flinders on the coast of Western Port. Contractors working for property owner Frank Hargrave, the multimillionaire founder of labour hire company Skilled Group, have cleared about 375 metres along the coastline of the property at 4507 FrankstonFlinders Rd, next to the cattle property Mornington Park. The cliff above Mornington Park Beach has been cleared of mature pine trees and other growth, and a primary dune area levelled. The dune area is said to contain ancient shell middens left behind by Aborigines who ranged through the area before European settlement. The work has drastically modified the cliff face. An old road that led to a horse training track on a flat area next to the beach, not used since last century, has been re-formed. The Office of Aboriginal Affairs Victoria, a state government body, has inspected the site with shire planning compliance and natural systems officers. The inspection and subsequent report led to the stop work order. The shire council knew nothing of the work until much of the clearing had been completed. An inspection by shire officers identified a large midden site with a large number of discarded shellfish. The second inspection, which involved AAV, found fewer shells. The second inspection was witnessed

by Mr Hargrave and his lawyer, who arrived at the site in a four-wheel drive. The AAV and shire joint inspection was the second carried out on sensitive Mornington Peninsula coastal land in recent times, the first being the site of the Lew family swimming pool illegally built on Crown land at Mt Eliza, which was ordered to be demolished and the land repaired late last year after a long-running saga. Mr Hargrave has owned the property of 14 hectares for about two years. Paul Lewis of the shire’s planning compliance section said the council had issued a permit for the removal of 180 radiata pine trees and 120 sweet pittosporum on the land in 2009. “The permit had specific conditions related to the sensitive removal of the trees and the retention of large stumps

to assist with the stabilisation of the land,” he said. “It is the position of council that the works undertaken … are a breach of the permit.” Mr Lewis said that after an inspection of the land “council sought an interim enforcement order at the Victorian Civil and Administrative Tribunal for all works to cease”. He said the landowner had told the VCAT he would seek geotechnical advice on stabilising the affected area. “Subsequent to the first hearing before VCAT, council’s cultural heritage officer identified an indigenous cultural heritage place on the site … a coastal shell midden.” Mr Lewis said the Office of Aboriginal Affairs was liaising with the landowner “with the aim of obtaining a Cultural

Heritage Management Plan, which may make recommendations about the future preservation of the site”. He said the shire was not satisfied with the geotechnical advice obtained by the landowner. The shire had commissioned “a professional and independent geotechnical report”. The report “raised concerns [about] the long-term stability of the … area and has made recommendations for the immediate stabilisation of the area. Those recommendations were the subject of a recent mediation at VCAT”. “The matter remains unresolved and council is seeking urgent action from the landowner for the land to be stabilised in the short-term. A final hearing before VCAT … is currently listed for 29-31 May.”

Shire backs films EIGHT Australian short films will be shown at a free film festival to celebrate this month’s World Day of Cultural Diversity. Colourfest Films and Mornington Peninsula Shire will show “films focused on cultural diversity” on Tuesday 21 May. “The Free Film Festival for World Day of Cultural Diversity is an opportunity for us to celebrate and reflect on Australian society and to recognise the diversity of our community through films focused on social inclusion and identity,” the mayor Cr Lynn Bowden said. The films will be screened 6.308.30pm Tuesday 21 May at the shire’s council chamber in Queen St, Mornington. Bookings: 5950 1685.  At 3pm on Saturday 11 May Mornington Peninsula Shire will present a film at the Human Rights Arts and Film Festival at ACMI Cinemas in Federation Square in Melbourne. Go Grandriders follows 17 Taiwanese senior citizens on a 13-day motorcycle adventure around their country. Cr Bowden said the shire’s involvement with the festival illustrates its commitment to “promoting and advancing human rights”. Jeanette Lane, an inaugural member and executive member of the Mornington Peninsula Advisory Committee for Elders, will speak before the Go Grandriders premiere. Before she retired, Ms Lane was the manager of equity and diversity for the Ministry of Planning and Environment and the AttorneyGeneral’s Department.

Servo arrests after car crash FOUR injured men found by police in an upturned car on Racecourse Rd in Mornington on Thursday night have been arrested and charged over a string of alleged armed robberies on the Mornington Peninsula and in the bayside area over the past week. The men, three from Bendigo and one from Mornington, were arrested at the scene and taken to hospital for treatment. The Bendigo men aged 18, 19 and 20 were later discharged from hospital and are in custody. The 23-year-old Mornington man remained under police guard at Frankston Hospital. Police said the men were wanted over nine alleged armed robberies on:  Thursday 2 May at a service station at the intersection of Beach and Bridge streets, Hampton, about 11.30pm.  Thursday 2 May at a service station on Nepean Highway, Mornington, at 11.20pm.  Thursday 2 May at a service station at the corner of Nepean Highway and Warrigal Rd, Mentone, at 10.08pm.  Thursday 2 May at a convenience store on Highett Rd, Hampton, at 12.20am.  Thursday 2 May at a service station on the corner of Park and Charman roads, Cheltenham, at 12.48am.  Thursday 2 May at a service station on Balcombe Rd, Mentone, at 12.53am.  Monday 29 April at a service station

on Moorooduc Highway, Mornington, just before 7.30pm.  Tuesday 30 April at a service station on Moorooduc Highway, Moorooduc, at 7.20pm.  Tuesday 30 April at a service station on Moorooduc Highway, Baxter, just before 10pm. Police were also investigating two attempted armed robberies at service stations in Chelsea and Mornington on Thursday night. The arrests came after police earlier in the week said they were seeking a lone robber who allegedly stole cash and cigarettes from three service stations on Moorooduc Highway. Detective Sergeant Alastair Hanson, of the Frankston-based Embona task force, said two of the robberies were definitely by the same man who was also the main suspect in the third. In each case the service station attendant was threatened with a knife or scissors. The Caltex service station at 854 Moorooduc Highway was robbed at about 7.30pm on Monday. On Tuesday at about the same time the Shell station at 993 Moorooduc Highway was robbed. Two and a half hours later, the Liberty outlet at 161 Moorooduc Highway was robbed. The offender was described as aged 26-30 years, having an olive complexion, wearing a dark hoodie and speaking with a New Zealand accent.

Continued from Page 1 “The remarkably intact building … stylistically represents a shift away from the strict tenets of the International Style. “Austere, rational and elegant, the building is an extraordinary example of Don Hendry Fulton’s designs, which also included buildings for remote company towns, laboratories and prefabricated buildings for the scientific bases [in] the Antarctic. “Commissioned by BP Australia Ltd as the flagship for its second refinery in Australia, the building has a strong association with BP, a major petroleum company, first established in Australia in 1920. It demonstrates the desire of the company to create a high quality corporate image against the backdrop of an industrial plant.”

The building was opened in 1966 by Premier Sir Henry Bolte. Mr Fulton said he remembered opening day clearly as the Premier had to leave early to meet United States President Lyndon Baines Johnson, who served from 1963-1969. The building is leased by the Western Port Oberon Association and is used as a museum. Its Otama submarine is moored nearby in Western Port, where it has been at anchor for more than 10 years awaiting permission to be brought ashore. The vandalism of the former BP building, others nearby including at the Crib Point fuel jetty opposite, drag racing along The Esplanade/Woolleys Rd and a fire in bush and part of an old BP workshop in mid-2012 shows this part of Crib Point is like the Wild West.

Line up: Fish are managing to survive in Port Phillip despite being lured onto lines, speared and caught in nets, but a new report calls for more government monitoring to make sure the bay remains a sustainable marine resource.

Call for more bay fishing studies By Keith Platt SCIENTISTS believe the soaring number of snapper being caught in Port Phillip may be due to a 30- to 40-year breeding cycle. History shows there were peaks in catches of snapper in the 1920s, 1970s and now the 2010s. And while figures show recreational anglers catch seven times more snapper than commercial fishers, the Victorian National Parks Association has warned that better management and more scientific research is needed to make sure Port Phillip remains a happy hunting ground for all. “Recreational fishing is incredibly popular. Every year there are more people catching more fish in more locations, and with better gear,” the Victorian National Parks Association’s marine and coastal project officer Simon Branigan said. “But there is a great deal of uncertainty and lack of accurate information about the scale and extent of recreational fishing and its impacts on the marine environment.” Recommendations to the state government in the VNPA-commissioned report The state of recreational fishing in Victoria include monitoring catches in Port Phillip; reintroducing annual trawls to assess fish populations; reduce risks affecting marine ecosystems; and the gradual switch by anglers to biodegradable hooks and fishing lines. The report shows that nearly half of the state’s recreational fish catch is taken in Port Phillip, although the most reliable data dates back to 19992000. Flathead was the most-caught species, with recreational anglers taking 597 tonnes compared to 151 tonnes by commercial fishers.

Snapper came in second, with 332 tonnes being taken by recreational fishers and 47 tonnes commercially. The biggest commercial haul was Australian salmon, 803 tonnes compared to 271 tonnes caught recreationally. An almost equal quantity of King George whiting was caught by both types of fishers (213 tonnes commercial; 215 tonnes recreational). Mr Branigan said the report, written by marine scientists John Ford and Patrick Gilmour, “shows that despite popular opinion, recreational fishing does have an impact on the marine environment and is proving difficult to manage”. “Some of Victoria’s most popular eating fish are now far more likely to be hooked by a recreational fisher than a commercial operator.” He said the report was commissioned to help overcome uncertainties about the impact of recreational fishing. Key findings showed Port Phillip accounted for an estimated 88 per cent of total recreational catch for Victoria’s bays and inlets and 47 per cent of the statewide, retained recreational catch. “The report reveals that despite perceptions, recreational fishing has a number of direct impacts on our marine environment and fish stocks,” Mr Branigan said. “Propellers and anchors can damage fish habitat, seabirds, dolphins and seals get tangled up in lost fishing line, and recreational fishing can remove important predator species from the marine food chain. “More can be done to ensure that impacts, including those from recreational and commercial fishing, are minimised and well managed.”

Laughter a land claim IT’S autumn and young kookaburras on the peninsula are out of the nest and taking on an important role in the kookaburra family. If you see one kookaburra around, it’s likely a whole family is living near you – and there are plenty of things that can be done to be a Backyard Buddy to kookaburras. Backyard Buddies is a free program run by Australia’s Foundation for National Parks and Wildlife, which provides tips to make a backyard inviting and safe for native animals. “Around this time of year, kookaburras that were only chicks a little while ago are old enough to begin helping out their parents,” said Susanna Bradshaw, CEO of the foundation. “The young birds stay with their family group for up to four years, raising siblings and helping the family to defend their home turf. “The kookaburra’s distinctive ‘koo-hoo-hoohoo-haa-haa-haa-haa’ isn’t a belly laugh – it’s a territorial display. “Kookaburras make various sounds to communicate. At any time of year they chuckle to locate family members. During the breeding season from September to January they make a ‘chuck’ to find their family, and ‘squawk’ to beg for food from other kookaburras in the group. “Their famous laugh tells other kookas that ‘This is our home, and we’ll fight for it’. If you listen to the calls, usually made in chorus by a family of kookas, you should be able to discover the boundaries of their territory. “Watch out if you hear a ‘kooaa’ and a loud cackle – the first call is a warning to the family group and the second signals aggression. Kookaburras cackle maniacally before two warring groups clash over territory. “To defend their home, laughing kookaburras in Victoria dart sharply to and fro, passing each other in mid-air like trapeze artists. Barrages of sinister laughter reverberate between the disputing groups, among the bright flashes of their brown and blue wings.” Ms Bradshaw said a family’s territory can ex-

tend up to 100 house blocks and include parkland as well. Kookaburras are quite at home in urban areas. “As young kookaburras don’t go off and start their own families for a number of years, the overall birth rate of the species is low,” she said. “Kookaburras can be in trouble if a sudden event such as habitat destruction or a misuse of pesticides wipes out a number of birds. It will take the population a long time to recover. “There are many simple things we can do to protect this national icon. Kookaburras are great to have around – not only do they provide lots of entertainment, but also they eat mice, insects and even small snakes in gardens.” Download a free kookaburra fact sheet at www. backyardbuddies.net.au

Quarry tip plan to shire By Mike Hast THE application for a rubbish tip in the former Pioneer quarry on Arthurs Seat escarpment is likely to go to Mornington Peninsula Shire this month, says David Maltby of Peninsula Waste Management. Mr Maltby, the company’s development manager, said PWM was waiting on third party reports that are part of the landfill application, including a fire management plan, and had revised parts of existing reports. The company, owned by R E Ross Trust, which also owns Hillview Quarries, wants to use the former quarry adjacent to Arthurs Seat State Park to take 3.5 million cubic metres of domestic and other waste at the rate of 150,000 tonnes a year sourced from the peninsula and other municipalities. The company needs approvals from the Environment Protection Authority and the shire. The proposal, revealed by The News in late January, initially raised the ire of landowners in Boundary Rd and Arthurs Seat Rd, and lead to the formation of a group called Save Arthurs Seat, now called Peninsula Preservation Group Inc. The group has been campaigning against the tip since Australia Day and has collected 4500 signatures on a petition, 5500 signatures for an online petition and 3500 supporters on its Facebook page “Save Arthurs Seat�. It is also distributing flyers in Dromana, Red Hill and on Arthurs Seat highlighting its concerns about potential pollution, fire risk, damage to flora and fauna, and “financial and physical impact on community and businesses�. Preservation group spokeswoman Lee Burton said it had “scores of volunteers from around the peninsula alerted to the tip proposal by Facebook, Twitter and signs and petitions in local businesses�. “We have a large and growing membership comprising concerned residents spanning the

southern peninsula. Members include scientists, legal professionals, indigenous flora and fauna experts, and a fire risk specialist.� PWM bought advertising space in three peninsula local papers two weeks ago to put forward elements of its plan. This was countered last week by a Dromana cattle grazier, Andrew Duncan, who has advertisements in three MP News Group papers (publisher of the Western Port News) and a Fairfax Media paper. Mr Duncan, who owns and leases land north of the quarry tip site where he runs 100 head of cattle, is a member of Peninsula Preservation Group but has compiled and paid for the adverts off his own bat. Sheepwash Creek, which will carry water from the old quarry, runs through the land he owns and uses. He said the site had been earmarked for a tip in 1996. “It has the potential to be a toxic time bomb left for future generations to clean up,� he said. Mr Duncan said he was putting his money where his mouth was to alert people to potential problems with the tip proposal.

Composting lessons for adults and youngsters WORKSHOPS on how to compost will be held on the weekend at the Eco Living Display Centre at The Briars Park, Nepean Highway, Mt Martha. The Saturday workshop on how to build a composting bin from recycled material will run 2.30-3.30pm. On Sunday children will be encouraged to “dig in the dirt� and learn about composting. Children must be supervised by an adult and the workshop will run 10.30-11.30am. Bookings essential on 5987 3078.

IMPORTANT COMMUNITY ALERT

WARNING

“NO TIP FOR THE ARTHURS SEAT ESCARPMENT, DROMANAâ€? When the Ross Trust (Owners of Peninsula Waste Management and Hillview Quarries) purchased the Old Pioneer Quarry at Boundary Rd Dromana, it was with the knowledge that the Mornington Peninsula Shire Council had in 1996 chosen the site as a preferred option for the next tip. Instead of protecting the environment they are prepared to create a Dz  Çł for future generations to clean up and manage. PWM would have us believe that they are doing the community a favour by having a tip at this site. Do not believe it, they are only interested in the financial gain. In 1998 the Mornington Peninsula Regional Waste Management Group was formed and they have continued to actively promote the s ite ever since. They have not been progressive and proactive in seeking up to date alternative methods. The MPRWMG has only ONE member Council, namely the MPSC, and 5 MPSC Councillors are directors of the Group. ‘™ impartial will they be when it is time to consider an application for the tip? The EPA have already given tentative approval (subject to a works approval) for the site to be used as a tip even though the site does not meet all its siting guidelines.Š›have they ignored their own guidelines?

The use of so called “best practise technologyâ€? for the liner may be applicable in normal landfill sites, however this site has extremely steep sides and its base approximately 25 metres below the existing water table. It will be a case of trial and error with this site.Šƒ– will the errors cost the community when things go wrong? The proposed tip site is at the head of “Sheepwash Creekâ€? which flows into the Bay. Any leachate leakage not collected will end up in the Bay. The Draft Risk Assessment for the site admits that there is likely to be some leachate leakage through the liner, this is even without considering what happens if there is a liner failure. Leachate is a –‘š‹…ˆŽ—‹† with an unknown chemical makeup. Its composition depends on the type of waste being dumped. The tip is located on the boundary of the Arthurs Seat State Park. Šƒ– will be the impact on the native fauna with an increase in vermin, seagulls and windblown rubbish? The nearest dwelling is according to the Draft Risk Assessment only 480 metres from the tip cell, this is under the required EPA distance offset of a minimum 500 metres. There are 21 registered bores within a 2 km radius of the site. What will the impact be on these with the continual groundwater extraction at the tip site? Peninsula Waste Management state that ABOUT 70 trucks per day will use the site. Given that the expected tonnage deposited will triple within 3 yearsÇĄŠ‘™ many trucks will this be? AlsoŠ‘™many trucks will be used in the delivery of lining and cover material? Šƒ– will the impact be on Boundary and Collins Road then? Certain sections of Collins Road are already dangerous. The Draft Risk Assessment highlights 2 high risk and 18 medium risk elements. These include litter in the waterway, vermin, odour and leachate leakage to groundwater. Š› are these being ignored? Peninsula Waste Management believe that the tip will not have an visual impact on neighbours, they obviously have not been to many neighbouring properties. No compensation mechanism exists for neighbours who suffer from property devaluation as a result of the tip.

Sheepwash Creek runs through our property and serves as a source of stock water together with feeding a large wetland and bird habitat. Any form of toxic poisoning to Sheepwash Creek would jeopardise the health of our cattle. The impact of poisoning to the wetlands would be devastating to the birds and animals that use them. We do not want to see Dromana becoming known as the Dz Çł of the Peninsula. We urge the community to rally against this ill advised, illogical and ill conceived proposal. Let the Ross Trust, Mornington Peninsula Shire Council, Councillors, Local Members of Parliament and the EPA know that you are concerned that the legacy this will leave future generations is not worth the short time gains if any. Please help us fight this plan before its too late. Put in an objection to the planning application.

FEATURE PROPERTY

<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<

Daily dose of inspiration INSPIRED by the name of a Thai elephant God, “Erawan” is a superb country retreat that could not fail to inspire with its gentle sounds of nature including the calls of bellbirds. The substantial and luxurious family home also has a bed and breakfast room. A gravel drive is flanked by tall, thin gums, and a circular driveway has been built around a grassy mound, which meets the second entrance. On the high ground is a separate two-bedroom cottage, which can be used as extra guest accommodation. Outbuildings include a massive machinery barn and a double lock-up shed. The first of three distinct living zones is a raised lounge room set above a stunning entry foyer with Italian slate tiles. There is a bar area and woodheater. A few steps down is a kitchen and dining area that runs the breadth of the home. The well-appointed kitchen has a stainless-steel dishwasher, underbench oven and rangehood. Perfect for family breakfasts and meals on the go, there is a large island bench and just off the dining area is a study. A slate tiled hallway leads past three bedrooms to what was once the first of two bed and breakfast rooms. Now a superb master bedroom suite, there is a parents’ retreat, huge walk-in robe and separate bathroom with spa bath. In the bedroom is another woodheater and air-conditioning. Very popular with honeymooners, the bed and breakfast aspect of the property still nets a tidy income. With its own entrance and private pool area, the guest room has unmistakable Asian influences, especially an archway into the opulent bathroom. For anyone with a hospitality or marketing background, this contemporary residence, close to wineries, is a haven. It will be of interest to those seeking a well-established tree change property.

Cutting-edge business

This oneâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a winner

FOR nine years, this family-owned business has specialised in the sales and repair of lawnmowers and chainsaws. The business provides an excellent income of about $100,000 a year and overheads are low. There is one full-time staff member keen to stay on and the owners are prepared to assist with training if required.

WITH unrivalled exposure along one of the main arterial roads in Rosebud, this popular and well-known milk bar is a sure-fire winner. There is ample passing trade from early morning tradies and regular business from the school crowd at the start, middle and end of the day. A long lease is in place and the affordable rent includes a three-bedroom residence.

100 YEARS AGO THIS WEEK...

Champion singer plans to dazzle Frankston again Compiled by Matt Vowell From the pages of the Mornington Standard, 10 May 1913. MISS Elva Rogers, Australia’s champion contralto singer, has stated that if not otherwise engaged on the evening of Saturday next she will sing at the Choral Society’s concert on the 17th inst., without fee. Mrs Rogers won the admiration of Frankston audiences on her last appearance, and it is safe to presume that the possibility of again listening for this splendid artist’s delightful singing will mean a record Frankston audience. *** MR G. A. Parrett, dentist, will visit Mornington on Saturday, 24th May. *** THE annual meeting of the Mornington Tennis Club will be held at the library at 8.30 p.m., on Wednesday next, 14th May. *** THE secretary of the Frankston Football Club desires to acknowledge with thanks the following additional donations: Messrs H. M. Collins and A. E. Bates £1/1s each; R. T. Picking and S. Lawrey 10s 6d each. *** READERS should not fail to hear the celebrated Scotch comedian, Mr Arthur Douglas, sing ‘A Wee Deoch an Doris’ at the Choral Society’s concert on Saturday, 17th May. *** LADIES desirous of joining the dress making class organised by Mrs G. Ward, dressmaker, of Mornington are requested to hand in their names on or before the 26th inst. For full particulars see our advertising columns.

*** ARRANGEMENTS are being made by Mr F. Harrap, manager of the newly formed ministry company at Mornington, to give an entertainment in the Mechanics’ Institute, about the end of May or the beginning of June, in aid of the funds of the Mornington Football Club. *** MR G. W. Wilson wishes to acknowledge, with thanks, Mr Jackson’s trophy of £1/1s and Mr R. Fort’s gold medal, which were presented to him by the members of the Mornington Football Club, for the best all round player for last season. *** MR J. Murphy, hon. sec. Mornington Football Club, wishes to acknowledge with thanks the following donations: Mr A. E, Bates, £1 1s ; Mr J. D. Davies, £l 1s; Mr J. Murphy, £1 1s; Dr Cole, 10s 6d; Mr F. Bieri, 10s 6d; Mr W. S. Cook, 10s 6d; Mr H. Downward, 10s 6d; Mr G. T. Jenkins, 10s 6d; Mr W. Board, 10s; Mr J. Richardson, £1 1s; Mr S Pilling, 7s 6d. *** THE Emu Plains and Bittern Racing Club are holding a winding-up meeting for the season at the Bittern hall on Thursday, May 15th. It is expected that a profit of about £40 will be made over the recent races. The committee were very pleased with the first registered meeting, and it is on the cards that an Emu Plains Cup of £20 will be run off at the next meeting, on what is the best racecourse on the Peninsula. *** THE balance sheet of the Colonial Bank of Australasia Ltd., for the half year ending 31st March last, has just

been issued. The net profit for the half year amounts to £29,002. A dividend at the rate of 7 per cent., per annum is being paid on both preference and ordinary shares. £10,00 is being placed to the reserve fund making £20,000 for the year and raising that fund £200,000. £5000 is placed in reduction of bank premises’ account, and £3894 is carried forward to next half year. The bank, which always shows great strength in coin and liquid assets, has put up a record this half year. Liquid assets amount to £2,031,315. This is equal to 118 per cent, of the noninterest bearing deposits and notes in circulation, and is 45 per cent, of the total liabilities of the bank. Shareholders are to be congratulated on the continued prosperity of the institution. *** A VERY pleasant evening was spent by the members of the Mornington Young Men’s Christian Association on Tuesday of last week at “Parkside,” the occasion being to bid farewell to their late (joint) secretary, Mr S Foster, who has received an appointment at Sargood Bros Warehouse, Melbourne. Mr F Bieri (president of the Association), on behalf of its members, presented Mr Foster with a handsome inkstand in recognition of past services, and also conveyed to Mr Foster the best wishes of the members of the Y.M.C.A in his new sphere. The catering was in the capable hands of Mr Bieri, and, as usual, gave entire satisfaction. After the musical programme was concluded the company dispersed, having had a most enjoyable time. *** MR T. W. Fowler, who for some time past has bean engaged as engineer to

the Shire of Mornington, tendered his resignation on Thursday. Mr Fowler has been appointed engineer-in-chief for the State of Tasmania, and while congratulating him upon his success in obtaining such a position Councillors said they would view his departure with feelings of the keenest regret. Mr Fowler responded, and said that the natural elation at gaining the position of engineer-in-chief of Tasmania was tempered a great deal by the thought of leaving the Mornington Council. He, however, would not forget them or the good times they had had, and he hoped to be able to visit them at different periods. *** A MEETING of the committee of the proposed Baxter’s Flat Racing Club was held in the Mechanics’ Hall, Frankston, on Tuesday evening last, when there were present: Messrs T Ritchie, Wilcox, V. Ritchie. May. Patterson, Schultz, Dalman Sherlock, Jacobs, Young, McKenzie, and Chamber in. The secretary read a letter from the Chief Secretary. stating that a license to hold a meeting could not be granted, as the course was within 40 miles of Melbourne and no meeting had been held there during the 12 months preceding 1906. It was decided that a deputation wait on the Chief Secretary and again make application for a license under section 151, clause 11, of the Act. *** THE vexed question of granting a portion of the foreshore reserve to Mr Bradbury to erect a fernery on was advanced another stage on Thursday, when Mr McKenzie, Minister of Lands, met, by appointment, a depu-

tation of the residents who feel interested in the matter. On arrival on the site Cr Murray (President of the shire) shortly explained the position and the reasons the council had for recommending the site to be leased subject to the approval of the Minister. Crs Ritchie and Plowman endorsed the remarks of the President and considered it would be greatly to the advantage of Frankston if the site were granted to Mr Bradbury, who intended, if the site was granted to him, to erect an up-to date fernery with every convenience for visitors, making it one of the beauty spots of Frankston. The President also presented a petition signed by 92 landowners and residents, who urged that the wishes of the council in granting the land be carried out. Messrs Collins, M. Clements and Gamble spoke on behalf of the objectors to the proposal, pointing out that they considered that it would be the means of bringing a most undesirable class of visitors to Frankston, who would make the foreshore undesirable for ladies and families to visit, and they strongly objected to leasing any portion of the foreshore for any purpose whatever. Mr McKenzie in his reply stated that he was averse to leasing the foreshore and always felt jealous of conserving it in all possible ways, and was in sympathy with the objectors to the movement, but he would lay the matter before the next meeting of the Cabinet and let them decide the question. Before leaving Frankston the Minister paid a visit to the fernery, and was shown round by Mr Bradbury, and he was very favourably impressed with the manner in which the place was kept.

D& ENTERTAINMENT ʔʦLȫɏ

Things that should be fun but aren’t, part one By Stuart McCullough IF golf is a good walk ruined, fishing makes the act of sitting around and not doing very much a supreme test of human endurance. My grandfather (pictured on far right) was a keen fisherman. He could plunge his bare hands into a glass of water and come out with a 12-inch trout, he was that good. My father missed out on the fishing gene and it soon became clear that it had skipped more than one generation. Suffice to say, my father is a terrible fisherman. I, on the other hand, am not quite as good as he is. Truth is, I always found it easier to catch a cold than I ever did a fish. Despite an absence of aptitude, we were required to try our hand and, if that failed, fishing rod. I would have been no more than six years old when I received a rod of my own. In fact, it wasn’t so much a rod as a giant cork with fishing line wrapped around it. Apparently, I wasn’t to be trusted with a proper rod. I spent hours staring at my oversized cork, wondering just how large the bottle must have been. My brother and I were taken to a variety of windswept, desolate locations where we expectantly lowered our hooks in the water and began the long and interminable wait to go home. When it came to fishing, I was useless at everything. To start, I found the idea of baiting a hook repulsive.

This was attributable to the fact that, in an effort to be thrifty, we used live worms dug up in the backyard. Trying to thread one of those suckers onto the hook was not only difficult but also downright nauseating. In the end, I resorted to tying my worms on with cotton to avoid harpooning them. Getting the bait on was the first of many problems. It seems I was incapable of unspooling my fishing line without it becoming an intractable Gordian knot. No sooner had it dropped off my giant cork than it was a bird’s nest, useless for fishing. Despite the fact that I showed lit-

tle in the way of aptitude or interest, I was eventually promoted from cork to rod. While you might think this kind of upgrade would better my chances, it was not to be. About the same time I received the rod, I was given my own tackle box. It was blue with lots of compartments for hooks and sinkers. There was little variety. As men of substance, we didn’t go in for frippery like lures or anything that might increase our chances of actually catching a fish. We were, in that sense, purists. Had the object of fishing been to embed the hook as deeply as possible into

a sunken tree trunk, I would have been an out and out champion. I’d go so far as to say that there’s not a fisherman alive who can capture a lump of wood as quickly as me. I wouldn’t even wait to wet my line before hooking a hapless eucalypt when attempting to cast. It’s a shame that more meals don’t feature wood as a key ingredient. We would have feasted like kings. Sadly, every lump of timber I hauled in was, in the traditional fishing manner, kissed and returned to the water from whence it came. As for the fish, the sight of me picking up a rod gave them a much-needed chance to relax. But we kept on trying all the same, perhaps in the hope that genetics would kick in and I would suddenly come good. The day never arrived. We’d stand by the side of a river, a huge supply of replacement hooks and sinkers by our sides, and wait for the sun to disappear. At some point, the bait on our lines would vanish, as if stolen by a master thief. We were staying beside the Goulburn River, outside Shepparton. I was as adept at camping as I was at fishing and, after 24 hours, was waiting for the chance to load up the car and go home. But first we had to fish. With our rods in our hands and fishing lines limply dipping into the water, we waited as swarms of mosquitoes feasted on

our faces and arms. Without warning, my line drew tight and I got the shock of my life. In all my years of fishing, I had never seen a tree branch fight like this before. But then the unthinkable occurred to me – what if, instead of a tree, this was an actual fish? I tried not to panic as I reeled it in. As the beast was hauled from the water my father pulled a face, saying, “It’s only a European carp”. It was, so he told me, barely edible. I told him I didn’t mean to carp – European or otherwise – but that we would either be eating this fish or having it stuffed and mounted in the living room. We ate it. Frankly, the whole experience left a bitter taste in my mouth, although that could easily have been the carp. I should have let it go. It’s often said that to spare the rod is to spoil the child but if that rod is a fishing rod, you’d be doing the kid a huge favour. As for me, my fishing days are long gone and the rod and reel have gone to that great shed in the sky. Tellingly, our father never went fishing without us. I think he was as relieved as we were when it was over. Fishing is so hugely popular that I feel a little guilty for disliking it. Still, I tried my best. But it was only a matter of time before fate would unhook me and send me back on my way. www.stuartmccullough.com

Crafty festival raises funds for restoration By Peter McCullough THE second annual Western Port Craft Fest was held at the Hastings Uniting Church on Saturday 27 April. There were 30 stalls (including men’s stalls) displaying a wide variety of crafts, and experts gave talks every hour on crafts such as embroidery, decoupage, beading and jewellery and scrapbooking. The Crafty Men’s Tent proved a popular attraction for men and the beautiful woodwork produced by the Western Port Men’s Shed, George Knight and Alan Poole was much admired, as was the skill of Jim Enever with his gemstones and jewellery. School-age children were not forgotten. The small cottage near the church hall was set up for children with simple

craft kits prepared for their clever fingers. This proved so popular, the supply of kits was exhausted by 2pm. It was a lovely autumn day and the attendance of about 500 people exceeded all expectations. Parking was at a premium and the number of cars spilled over from the adjoining parking area near the primary school into the parkland to the north of the church buildings. The women of Hastings Uniting Church worked hard producing freshly made sandwiches, delicious slices and scones as well as tea and brewed coffee for hungry visitors. Net funds earned on the day expect to total just on $2000 and will be used in the restoration of the old Methodist Chapel, which dates from 1923.

An application has been made to Mornington Peninsula Shire to have the building placed on a heritage overlay. In 2011 the Western Port Uniting Church parishioners received a heritage award from the shire and the National Trust for the restoration of the interior of the chapel. The organisers would like to thank Mornington Peninsula Shire and the Balnarring Community Bendigo Bank for their financial support, and many local businesses for donations of goods. Hastings real estate agencies BTRE, Satchwells and Harcourts arranged for large advertising signs for the craft fest. Thanks, too, go to Hastings Community Bendigo Bank for the supply of its marquee, allowing several late enrolments to participate.

AND NOW NEWS FROM THE LITERARY FRONT In complete contrast to previous years, the shortlist for the 2013 Miles Franklin Literary Award, announced on Tuesday, are all books written by women. The award was established with proceeds from the estate of My Brilliant Career author Stella Maria Sarah Miles Franklin, in order to support and encourage authors of Australian literature & the winning novel will be the one judged to be of the highest possible literary merit and one that presents â&#x20AC;&#x153;Australian life in any of its phases.â&#x20AC;? One of the following worthy novels will be the recipient of the $60,000 prize. Shortlisted this year are Romy Ash for Floundering , Michelle de Kretser for Questions of Travel, Anna Faulkner for The Beloved, Drusilla Modjeska for The Mountain, and last but not least Carrie Tiffany for Mateship With Birds. Carrie is the inaugural winner of the STELLA PRIZE established to recognise women writers in Australia, so the smart money may well be on her for the Miles Franklin also. Mateship with Birds is a novel about young lust and mature love. It is a hymn to the rhythm of country life â&#x20AC;&#x201C; to vicious birds, virginal cows, adored dogs and ill-used sheep. On one small farm in a vast, ancient landscape, a collection of PLVÂżWVTXHVWLRQWKHQDWXUHRIZKDWDIDPLO\FDQEH On the outskirts of an Australian country town in the 1950s, a lonely farmer trains his binoculars on a family of kookaburras that roost in a tree near his house. Harry observes the kookaburras through a year of feast, famine, birth, death, war, romance and song. As Harry watches the birds, his next door neighbour has her own set of binoculars trained on him. Ardent, hard-working Betty has escaped to the country with her two fatherless children. Betty is pleased that her son, Michael, wants to spend time with the gentle farmer next door. But when Harry decides to teach Michael about the opposite sex, perilous boundaries are crossed.

The Blues go down to the Panthers, while the Hillmen and the Yabbies cop severe thrashings NEPEAN LEAGUE By Andrew ‘Toe Punt’ Kelly HASTINGS needs to win at least eight of its remaining eleven games to play finals in Nepean League this season. This is the harsh reality after the Blues were beaten by a more desperate and hungry Pearcedale on Saturday. Not even for star player Jason Kestle’s 200th game could help the Blues stay competitive in the second half. They were soundly beaten 14.20.104 to 8.15.63. After kicking the first three goals of the game, the Blues went on to kick just five more for the match, while the opposition booted fourteen of the next nineteen goals. Hastings appeared to be disinterested at times and its midfield pressure was poor. So too was the inability of the small forwards to capitalise on the loose ball. Repeatedly, Pearcedale set up their attack from half-back and their midfield ran riot, especially in the second half. Pat Cadd and Chris Fortnam appeared to have no opponents, while Dylan Hoare ran around unchallenged. Even fill-in ruck Pat Gamble ran around and did as he pleased after Ben Mitchell went down with a hip strain. Teenager Adam Avard was given no respect and he hurt the Blues with his flawless disposal. Once again, it’s time the Blues have a good hard look at themselves. If coach Glenn Michie isn’t getting his message through, then it’s time to come clean. If he is, then the players need to determine what the club means to them, what their mates going into battle each week mean to them and show some respect to the coach. The coach needs to mix things up too. Tony Mirabella, Dylan Hand coming off injury and Michie himself meant it was a pretty slow forward line on Saturday. Will Jolley is exceptionally desperate and talented but not quick. Michie needs to go to centre half back. He reads the play as well as anyone and Mick Agnello is way out of form. Bring in the next tall defender from the kids or reserves and teach

Feeling blue: Hastings went down to Pearcedale in a hard-fought affair. Picture: Andrew Hurst

him how to be a key defender at the top level. Colin McVeigh needs to play forward and stay there. He can make something out of nothing. He’d be dangerous there with Mirabella. Move Jason Kestle to a wing and allow him to be flamboyant. Leave Josh Mulheron in the ruck but get someone else, perhaps Ben King, to be the utility The opposition are playing through their mobile rucks. Leave Andy Kiely at full back and don’t move him. Use Kain Stratton as a tagger in the middle on the opposition’s best midfielder. The reality is that whatever the Blues are doing at the minute is not working. Players need to be responsible for what is going on. The match against Frankston Bombers this weekend is crucial for the Blues. Pearcedale, on the other hand, were sensational. A pleasure to watch in fact. They are now in the top five and given the footy they have played in the past two weeks (besides a bad

third quarter against Sorrento), they are travelling extremely well. Chris Hensby, Trav Sauer and Luke Murray were superb down back for the Panthers and the forward line always looked dangerous with tall timbers in Matt Vagg and Pat Heijden. After the match, Blues coach Glenn Michie was devastated. “We are just not playing our roles defensively,” Michie said. “They played better than us and deserved their win but we didn’t do anything to stop them either. “We just need to get better as a group and want to get better as a group. If we don’t, then I’m just flogging a dead horse. Only the players can get us out of this. “I can preach and plead but at some point, the responsibility is on the blokes that go out onto the field. We can point fingers and blame others but ultimately, what are we doing ourselves to change things? “We go back to the drawing board and prepare the best we can for Frankston Bombers. While Michie sounded distressed after the match, a coach who is sleeping a little easier is Crib Point’s

Dave Lawson after his side beat Rosebud. ‘Plugger’s’ boys have won their past two matches and if they can knock over Rye this weekend, their season is well and truly back on track. On Saturday the Magpies were superb against Rosebud, winning 16.8.104 to 13.15.93. The Buds kicked the opening four goals of the match before the Pies hit back with four goals to square things up at the first change. The Pies then kicked clear in the second, largely due to the continued good form of Waide Symes and Brad Davidson, while Neil Clark gave them some drive defensively and choppedout in the ruck. Jake Ross and Jon Flack were again amongst the goals kicking three each. The Buds came back hard in the last quarter and Crib Point tightened up, however they still managed a good win. Lawson said it was amazing what a bit of confidence could do. “I think we were off the boil a bit in a number of areas in the first three rounds and Sorrento really set us back in round one. This had an effect on us. “Our skills were poor in the first three rounds and I think we were 1015 percent off the mark. “However, all those simple things that make us a good team; our tackling, pressure, skills and chasing, were all back in the past two weeks,” Lawson said. Lawson said while he expected ruck James Cook to be back in two weeks, Tim Beech and Clark were doing a great job. “Structurally we have managed pretty well. “Matt Sloper is playing across half forward and gives a real contest and Jayden Eppenschield coming back from overseas has given us some coverage at full back. “Zac Dekleuver is only a kid but he’s a big kid and he’s doing a brilliant job for us at centre half back.” Lawson said he had obviously identified that Rosebud had a wonderful midfield and needed to be mindful of them going into the game. “You can’t tag them all but we felt that Matt Payne and Greg Bentleigh were their two most important players. We put a hard tag on them both and

while Bentleigh was still very good, I thought we won that battle. “Dekleuver did a great job on Ben Shultz and, to be honest, our defence held up really well. Rye has been shunted out of the top five after being beaten by Somerville. The Eagles got their noses in front in the first quarter and were able to sustain the narrow lead for the entire match, winning 13.13.91 to 11.16.82. Todd Farrelly booted three goals for the winners and Jed Sutton and Ben Sedgewick dominated, along with Rowan Hogenbirk and Caleb Cox. Rhett Sutton, Darren Booth and Ben Holmes were the best of the Demons. Frankston Bombers kicked five goals to Devon Meadow’s one in the first quarter and it was all over at that point. The Panthers kicked ten goals to twelve after quarter-time but the game was already lost, the Bombers winning 17.11.113 to 11.7.73. Zac Longham booted a game high three goals for the Bombers while Jay Reynolds and Scott Foster were instrumental in the win. Chris Doria was the Panther’s best with two goals while Stephen Baumgartner also played well yet again. Dromana had 49 (29.20.194) scoring shots against Tyabb on Saturday and restricted the opposition to one point in the first half and to 1.3.9 for the entire match. Anthony Bruhn kicked seven, Adam Loury and Toby Banks six each and Dan Gormley and Liam Hogan dominated as the Tigers went about doing whatever they wanted. John Alexander and Tim McGrath were the best of the Yabbies. Likewise, Sorrento punished Red Hill 22.25.157 to 1.2.8. The Hillmen went into the match incredibly undermanned, the likes of Marcus Dal Lago, Ben Maguiness, Sean Holmes, Joe Krieger, Luke Adams, James McCall, Kane Hitchener and a couple of others out of the team. The reality is that Red Hill cannot afford to go into battle without their stars. Ben Schwarze booted eight goals on Saturday while Kayle Stronger-Morris was at his best, as was the highly underrated Nick Warner.

Pearcedale proves superior in free flowing game of football By Casey Franklin Pearcedale registered their third win of the season against a struggling Hastings side on Saturday. The Panthers were able to play four consistent quarters of footy and were tough and hard around the packs all day. The match started out as a scrappy affair, with neither team able to control the play. The first goal of the day came at the 11 minute mark when Blues captain-coach Glenn Michie bombed a goal from outside 50. Blues player Jason Kestle kicked a goal a minute later to give Hastings the jump. The Panthers were quick to respond with a check-side goal from Mitchell Smith. The scoring run

continued with a goal from Hastings’ William Jolley to give them a two goal lead. However Pearcedale levelled the game up at quarter time with two goals from Pat Cadd, who kicked them under no opposition pressure. At quarter time Hastings looked the better team, but Pearcedale were good enough to stay with them. The second quarter started out well for Hastings with two goals from Michie and Murray, but as was the case in the first quarter, Pearcedale were able to respond and they responded well. The Panthers were really able to open up the game and kicked the last four goals of the second half to give them an 18 point lead, Pat Heijden was able to kick

two of them. The story of the first half was pressure, whenever Hastings moved the ball through the middle they always had to kick to a one on one target. On the flip-side plenty of Panthers players were able to get loose on the wings and were able to move the ball quickly and accurately. For the third quarter in a row Hastings started well with Mirabella and Stratton kicking the first two goals. But from then on it was sheer domination from Pearcedale. They took more risks and were more direct with their disposal and overall were the more organised team. The Panthers slammed on five unanswered goals, one of those was from Dylan Hoare who was up against the point post and

dribbled the ball along the ground to kick the goal of the day. On the three quarter time siren Pat Heijden marked the ball and kicked a goal to give his team a 45 point lead which effectively sealed the win. The last quarter was a low scoring struggle from both sides. Hastings lifted their intensity early on but were unable to make a difference to the scoreline kicking one goal seven behinds. Pearcedale’s defence was pretty tight all day, but by the 15 minute mark of the last quarter both sides were fatigued and the intensity dropped quite significantly. When the final siren sounded it was Pearcedale 14.20.104 defeating Hastings 8.15.63.

Seaford pip Mornington at the post in a thriller, but next face the might of YCW PENINSULA LEAGUE By Andrew ‘Toe Punt’ Kelly Seaford has rocketed to second place on the Peninsula League ladder after a thrilling come from behind win over Mornington on Saturday. The Tigers are now four wins from five matches. Seaford trailed Mornington for the majority of the afternoon, however two goals by Aaron Walton in the last two minutes of the match saw the home side turn an eight point deficit into a four point win. With 90 seconds left on the clock, Walton swooped on a ball at half forward, carried it inside fifty and kicked a goal to reduce Mornington’s lead to two points. Forty seconds later at a stoppage on the wing, Brad Doyle went third man up in a contest, got it to Walton who kicked another from outside fifty to give the Tigers the lead. The siren sounded with the scoreboard reading 8.17.65 to 9.7.61 in Seaford’s favour. Understandably, Seaford coach Craig McIndoe was proud after the match. “I’m pretty happy, I must say,” McIndoe said. “It was a really hard fought, highly contested game and it was great for our blokes to get the win. “Mornington has improved a hell of

a lot and they structure up really well. “Although we trailed, I thought we were always in the game but just couldn’t convert our opportunities. “We were really wasteful in the second half and I thought, if we could start converting, we were in with a chance.” McIndoe said he wasn’t overly surprised to see his side four wins and one loss after five rounds. “A lot of people have written us off but we were always pretty confident in the group,” McIndoe said. “We’ve got players like Kemble, Irving, Taylor, Stokes, Walton and Shaw who have played in three senior premierships, then we have a group of under-18’s and reserves players who have stepped up, having all come from winning premierships at a lower level. “They have come into the senior side with a winning culture and this is why we are going OK at present.” Seaford’s real test comes this weekend against the benchmark of the competition in YCW. “Nothing changes for us at this point. We prepare the best we can, pick the best side we can and go out and try and win another game of footy. “Regardless of where we are on the ladder, we just want to win as many games as we can and play finals footy. “YCW is no doubt the benchmark of the competition. They’re wiping the

floor with most teams. “I think we’ll enjoy the big ground and we’ll be looking to be as competitive as we can be,” McIndoe said. Kane Taylor, Keiran Shaw and Aaron Walton were stand-out performers for the Tigers on Saturday while Darragh Chadwick and Brayden Irving each kicked two goals, as did Walton. Mornington defenders Josh Mclerie and Chris Baker were among the best for their team, while Jackson Calder once again impressed. Frankton YCW went into its match against Pines on Saturday without tall towers Brad Ulms and Ash Eames. Eames, the best big man in the competition, and arguably the best in the past 20 years in local footy, went down last week with a broken leg and ligament damage to his knee. He is expected to be right by finals time. This meant that the Stonecats had to mix things up in the middle and reserves rucks Josh Leary and 19-year-old Brenton Credlin came into the side. While Pines’ Beau Hendry dominated at the centre bounces and around the ground, especially combining with Jamie Messina, the Stonecats were well on top everywhere else. The half-back line completely dominated and when the ball went

Nepean Interleague squad picked By Andrew ‘Toe Punt’ Kelly NEPEAN League has picked a squad of more than 70 players to represent the league in the upcoming Country Championships. Despite coach Gavin Artico going on record as saying he was only selecting players who wanted to represent the league, there was still more than 70 players selected. There are already a number of players who have declared that they are not committed to representing the league, including the likes of former AFL players Nathan and Ryan Lonie, Damien Atkins, Ben and Troy Schwarze and Steven Baker. There are also some players who have been

selected who have been picked on reputation, rather than good form. And there are others who put their hand up to represent their league last season but were overlooked in 2013. Glaring omissions to the squad are Sorrento star ruckman Scott Cameron, as well as league medal winner Brenton Payne. There were 11 players selected from Sorrento, 10 from Frankston Bombers and nine from Dromana. There will be a meet and greet this Wednesday at Hastings from 6pm, before training kicks-off the following Wednesday, also at Hastings.

Nepean Interleague squad

inside the attacking fifty, Dave Bodley, Michael Chaplin and Ricky Morris did the damage. Chaplin played higher up the ground while Morris spent much of his time inside the fifty metre arc. The likes of Tony Lester, Kyle Hutchison and Ben Tellis also rotated through the fifty and were dangerous. Ryan Santon on the wing was very good for the Stonecats and was given little respect while Jai Coghlan and Craig Nankervis provided plenty of run. The Pythons had few winners, outside of Beau Hendry and Messina. Brenton Cowell worked hard and had a fair amount of the ball while Matt Rowe worked tirelessly also. Karingal is sitting in third place on the ladder after getting the job done against Chelsea, winning 20.15.135 to 10.10.70. The Seagulls let themselves down with a very poor first half, going to the break trailing by eight goals. They managed to boot six goals to eight after half-time. Harley Ambrose was a surprise packet for the Bulls with four goals while Justin Peckett and Sam McGarry slotted three goals each. Cal Dixon and Dale Alainis were also up and about. Curtis Bywater booted four goals for the Gulls and played his best game

so far for his new club while Gavin Masuric was his side’s best player. Mt Eliza had to work hard to get over Langwarrin, eventually winning 15.10.100 to 12.18.90. The Kangas led at half-time, however they squandered opportunities in the third quarter, booting 2.7 to the Redlegs 5.2. The three-quarter time margin was seven points. David White booted five for the Redlegs while Rohan Heasley and Tim Strickland were outstanding. Luke Damon kicked five for the Kangas and coach Paul Wheatley managed three, while Aaron Shaw and Daniel Wehner were at their best. Edithvale-Aspendale got blown away in the first term against Bonbeach and never recovered, losing 14.10.94 to 19.9.123. The Sharks kicked 8.2 to 1.1 in a blistering first quarter and were able to maintain a comfortable lead from that point. Shane McDonald was the best player on the ground with six goals while Dylan Jones was again a standout. Markham Johnson booted three for the Eagles and Timmy Mannix, Jordy Derbyshire and Jeremy Heys flew the flag. Edithvale is sixth on the ladder, a game outside the top three, while Bonbeach is in fourth position.

Hastings Football Club – the earliest years By Lance Hodgins Part 1 HASTINGS township entered the 1890s with much optimism: the fishing industry was thriving and properties were being developed for grazing and fruit orchards. Finally, in September of 1889, the railroad had come to town. A Hastings Football Club existed in 1889, largely due to a mix of pioneering young men and enterprising businessmen in a town of barely 400 people. Its captain was John Watson, a keen and skilful sportsman who ran fast and kicked with great accuracy. Playing beside him was his brother George. The Watson family had been early leaseholders of the original Martha King run, which covered much of the Western Port area. The boys now lived with their mother at “Bunguyan”, a smaller remnant of this property that stretched from the new railway station to the primary school. They were to play a pivotal role in many of the activities of Hastings throughout the 1890s. Several players were fishermen, drawn from the ranks of the 60 or so hardy adventurers who would sail out on a Sunday night and return with their catches every Thursday. Jack and William Jones’s father had come from Nassau in the Bahamas to dredge for oysters in Western Port. Giavanni (John) Napoli, from Sicily, was a conscript on an Italian Navy ship visiting Melbourne for the International Exhibition in 1880. The night before it was due to leave, he jumped ship with his mate “Yanna” Mirabella and ended up fishing and playing football in Hastings. Irishman Daniel Sheehey had run away from home at the age of 15 to avoid the priesthood. He became a fisherman at Hastings and his son, Daniel junior, was a Hastings footballer of the 1890s. Thanks to the guidance of

some publicly spirited townsfolk, the Hastings Football Club of 1889 was properly constituted with office-bearers elected at an annual general meeting and official accounts. The match committee organised nine games that year – for four wins, two draws and three losses. Four of the games were played against Mornington with the honours shared at two wins each. Hastings kicked a total of 17 goals that season. Scores were low in the football of that time. “Behinds” simply meant that the ball had passed behind the scoring line and, although recorded, they did not count for total points. Only goals mattered. Four of the goals were off the boot of John Watson and two from his brother George. Other players to score were Kemp, Prosser, Lee (two each) and singles to Jack and William Jones, John Napoli, Dan Sheehey and Bell. George Watson was voted the “Best Improved” player and presented with a silver trophy donated by the club president, D J Ham. D J Ham was a gentleman of some considerable influence and energy. Barely 30 years of age, this son of a wealthy Member of Parliament was a keen grazier and horse breeder first at Western Park in Somers and then at “Warrenda”, now the Kinfauns residential estate between Hastings and Bittern Ham was about to be sworn as a JP and he would serve as a shire councillor for 10 years, twice as its president. He became the commanding officer of the Hastings Battery, where his idea of using oxen to pull the gun carriage led to it being called the “Ham and Beef Battery”. He was a captain in the Boer War in South Africa, afterwards spending several years in Johannesburg as a stock and station agent. A meeting to wind up the 1889 season was held at

O’Reilly’s Western Port Hotel and the accounts were balanced after the hat was passed around. A concert was held a month later to raise money for ground improvements at the park, as the council had promised a two for one subsidy. A massive sum of 15 pounds was raised. Despite all of these good omens, a meeting in March 1890 was so poorly attended that one correspondent hoped “… football is surely not going to die in Hastings”. Another wrote: “There are certain straight-laced people who sneer and scoff at our footballers and their supporters. It is brutalizing and very dangerous, they say. It is no good to argue with them as they are afraid of soiling their fingers with a football.” On the day that others were playing their first games of the 1890 season, a belated annual general meeting was held in Hastings. D J Ham was re-elected president and playing vice-captain, John Watson the secretary and captain, and Albert Whitehead the treasurer. Two vice-presidents and a match committee of five were elected. The committee’s task was an all-important one: matches were arranged by negotiation between clubs, and “fixtures” were fairly flexible – mostly known in advance and sometimes broken without warning. The two larger towns on the peninsula had teams that played frequently. Mornington’s population of 900 was rapidly being caught by Frankston, which had seen many new expensive hotels and buildings constructed during the land boom of the 1880s. Frankston’s football team was in its fourth year and it frequently played against suburban teams to its north. Occasional games had been played by Flinders, Sorrento, Cowes, Dromana and Rosebud – even by some schools in those districts. Hastings’ final game in 1889

was against Marylebone Football Club, which had travelled from South Melbourne for the occasion. Hastings began its 1890 season at home to Mornington. Both sides were short of several good players as the match had been hastily arranged and players had been given very little notice. Hastings was without its captain, John Watson, and Kemp rose to the occasion by playing a great game. Strong efforts from George Watson, Jones, Sheehey and Napoli failed to avert a loss, however, with Mornington winners by 5 goals to 1. The shortage of players was to be a recurring theme. The following week, even Frankston arrived in Mornington with only 16 men and had to find four players from among the spectators. The two Watson boys from Hastings wore the black and red that day. The next week saw the return of Marylebone to Hastings. The visitors hit the post three times to give Hastings a win 3.3 to 2.6. Both teams played short of the 20 and Hastings was best served by Oakley, Green and Ham. A fortnight later, Hastings hosted Frankston and battled to a draw 1.5 to 1.4. Best for the Blues were J Watson, G Watson, J Jones and D Sheehey. A month later Hastings journeyed to Mornington for yet another goal-each draw, a result that pleased neither side as both had considered themselves in contention for the “premiership”. The absence of an official draw and ladder did not stop players talking of being premiers – the status being claimed by a club that felt it had the greatest number of wins against local teams during the season. This was likely to lead to argument, but not so in 1890. Frankston would be clear-cut premiers, undefeated with eight wins and two draws from

10 games. On the other hand, newcomers Flinders and Balnarring won four out of 10 and Dromana, having its second season, won only two out of eight. The Hastings v Mornington match on 4 July 1890 was a significant one for football on the Mornington Peninsula because it highlighted two controversial issues: the eligibility of players and the bias of umpires. The game did not start until 4 o’clock due to the repeated objections being raised by the Mornington players against some of the Hastings men who had been invited to make up the team. Hastings felt that its opponent was being just a little hypocritical and acting in a “very selfish spirit”, since Mornington was playing men from other districts, including a St Kilda Firsts player, Also, the Mornington spectators and even the local constable were roundly criticised for their “over-enthusiastic” behaviour during this protracted time. The ball was finally bounced for one of the fastest and fiercest games seen on the peninsula to date, leaving people to grumble about the necessity of team lists and player eligibility. A solution would have to wait. The second issue to arise out of this Hastings–Mornington encounter in mid-1890 was the competence and impartiality of the umpires. As long as it remained the responsibility of the home team to provide the central umpire, a losing team was likely to go home with feelings of being hard done by. One Hastings observer referred to the match umpire in fairly polite terms: “His umpiring was something to be remembered by the visitors … as far as football is concerned his education had been sadly neglected. I suggest a trip to the City to see how the game is played.” He signed the piece “Disgusted”. When a Mornington committeeman of considerable experience responded to this in the press, feelings ran high and the man in white was truly in the middle. In preparation for the 1891 season, Hastings re-elected John Watson as captain and secretary and J Merriman as vice-captain. D J Ham was again in the chair and Albert Whitehead was the treasurer. A new team from Mordialloc entered the competition and made its presence felt by beating Mornington first up seven goals to two. Then it was on to Hastings where Watson won the toss and kicked with the wind to the east goals. The Blues were caught napping, however, and the big Mordialloc followers did not allow the ball to reach the forwards at all in the first quarter. Hastings fought back to be two goals to one at half-time. Despite peppering the goals in the third quarter, Hastings could only manage one from a scrimmage to keep a slender lead. Hastings finished all over its opponents and Jones goaled just before the bell to ring up a

four goals to two victory. In the first meeting with Mornington for 1891, Hastings put its opponents under pressure from the start but was once again inaccurate in front of goal. One goal from 10 behinds meant that its final score of 1.9 to Mornington’s 1.2 produced a drawn game. This was a particularly friendly game between keen rivals, but Mornington was missing some of its usual faces. They were playing for that “other” Mornington team, the Rovers. This was a breakaway group of discontented members and, with cheaper subs, was meant to appeal to the more working class person. When the group was referred to in the press as being of “… the broad rimmed hat and bell bottomed trouser following”, the class division was clearly established and feelings ran high on the football field and in Mornington’s Main St. The Rovers acquitted themselves quite well throughout 1891, with the exception of one late withdrawal from a match against Flinders at Balnarring, owing to transport difficulties. When Hastings knew it would travel to Frankston with only 14 players, it had arranged some “heavy replacements” from the city: McKnight, the best follower from South Melbourne; Johnson from North Melbourne and Mackay from Port Melbourne. Frankston was aghast at the talent lined up against it, and equally surprised when the half-time score was four goals to none in its favour. The club was expecting a Hastings fight back, which never came, and the final score was a runaway win for Frankston 13.14 to 2.2. Of the regulars, Denham, Sheehey, Watson and Anderson were among the best for the Blues. Peninsula football finished the 1891 season on a sour note: Mornington and Frankston stood at a win each and a draw, and the final encounter was shaping up as a “premiership” tussle. Spectators converged on Mornington in great numbers to witness one of the most vigorous and controversial matches played to date. At half-time, Frankston led 2.3 to 1.3. No more goals were scored in the second half despite repeated free kicks and tampered goal posts. Mornington supporters claimed that the disputed two goals would have given them victory. Furthermore, they claimed that in a “shamefully violent display” the Frankston players had used “bullocking tactics” in “deliberate attempts to provoke an open fight”. After the game, the Frankston entourage was jeered and hooted on their way out of the township of Mornington amid a hail of mud and stones. Little did anyone present know that another event in Mornington would set a much more sombre tone for the new season ahead in 1892. To be continued.
