Celebration for unity Day one: Jai’s inquest Eve Jeffery

On day one of the inquest into the death of Jai Morcom, Deputy State Coroner Hugh Dillon acknowledged the presence of Jai’s mother, father and siblings in the courtroom. ‘Today some of Jai’s family and friends are present,’ he said. ‘To Jai’s family, I would like to offer my sincerest, respectful condolences for the loss of a boy very dear to you.’ Counsel assisting the coroner, Michael Wigney spoke at length summarising both the proceedings and the evidence to be given during the hearing. He said that more than 100 witness statements had been given in both audio and video recordings. Mr Wigney said that the evidence to be given would show that an autopsy has established that Jai died of a sub-arachnoid hemorrhage in the brain but the cause of the bleed was not able to be defined in the process. There are two possibilities for the occurrence of the condition; it may happen spontaneously, usually from a ruptured cerebral aneurysm, or it may Three youngsters enjoying Australia Day on Wednesday.

The parents of one of the older students named in relation to the incident sat at the back of the public gallery, the boy’s father stony faced and his mother visibly distressed at the mention of their son’s involvement in the melee. The couple have arranged legal representation for the boy will most likely appear as a witness later in the week. The Echo spoke to Sue Drummond, Steve Drummond’s sister, during the morning break. Sue said that that Steve, who has also lost both of his parents in the last 12 months, was holding up considerably well. ‘He’s made of strong stuff,’ she said. ‘He’s doing this for Jai. I am really proud of him.’ The media had set up at the courthouse from early in the day, the trees outside providing shade for about six camera crews and journalists packed the small media area inside the courtroom. Kim Morcom was shown a side door by a security guard during the morning teabreak and was able to exit away from waiting crowd. After morning tea the first witness, Detective Sergeant Terry Frost, who is the officer in charge of the investigation took the stand. Detective Frost said that he was responsible for compiling the brief of the investigation and for overseeing the interviews with students, staff, nurses and medical and ambulance staff. It was he who called in the homicide team on the afternoon of August 28, 2009. ‘We ascertained the main participants and witnesses in the afternoon. The students were taken to Byron Bay police station and some were read their rights.’ The inquest expects to hear from students and other witnesses this week and medical experts next week. Mr Dillon said he would accept oral submissions on Thursday January 10 and hoped to deliver his finding the next day.

The Shireâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s two current hospitals in Mullumbimby and Byron Bay will eventually close when the Byron Shire Central Hospital is built, according to a planning proposal now on display at Council. The site is near the highway roundabout on Ewingsdale road, and is adjacent to the cement factory. North Coast Area Health Service (NCAHS)â&#x20AC;&#x2122;s plans for the 54-bed facility also includes an ambulance station. Byron Bay is renowned for its alcohol-related accidents and violence, and the loss of such a facility within walking distance will no doubt be a disadvantage for community and tourist accessibility. A new â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Superâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; hospital for the Shire would have huge benefits to highway accident victims however â&#x20AC;&#x201C; every second counts and the Byron traffic bottleneck is a major hindrance. NCAHS described the facility as providing a good vegeta-

tion buffer between the new hospital buildings and the residences to the north. â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;[It] is also large enough to allow for future expansion, which the current Byron Hospital does not have.â&#x20AC;&#x2122; In addition to core services such as Emergency Department and acute medical beds, the NCAHS spokesperson said the hospital will provide lowrisk maternity service and xray or Medical Imaging (MI). â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;In addition, the new Byron Shire Central Hospital would more easily attract workforce and so better equipping the Shire to compete for clinicians, thereby providing a greater variety of services, improving sustainability of current services and addressing the need for new technology.â&#x20AC;&#x2122; Construction plans and a land rezoning proposal for the six hectare site is open for public submissions at Council until Feburary 16.

Trevor Watts spent the morning doing what he normally does on Australia Day â&#x20AC;&#x201C; sorting snags for the Bruns brekky. Trev was nominated Volunteer of the Year because of his 27 years of volunteer service in the Shire. â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;With so many volunteers in our community, I was very humbled and proud to have been chosen this yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s volun-

teer in the Byron Shire,â&#x20AC;&#x2122; he said. â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;I can recommend volunteering to anyone. â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;If you have time on your hands, volunteering gives you great satisfaction in life. It broadens your horizons when you meet and help others. In my experience I have met so many lovely people; some have become my friends far and wide.â&#x20AC;&#x2122;

Fundraising presentations

Corrections from last week Last weekâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s story â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Boat flips on Bruns Barâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; had assistance from the Volunteer Marine Rescue Brunswick, not Brunswick Valley Marine Rescue, as reported. The vessel that assisted does not belong to the VRA Marine Rescue but belongs to Volunteer Marine Rescue Brunswick, Penny Fuller from BVVRA said. â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;The Brunswick Valley Volunteer Rescue Association (BVVRA) does all road accidents, while Volunteer Marine Rescue Brunswick is responsible for the area of ocean from Wooyung to Lennox Head and seven nautical miles out to sea,â&#x20AC;&#x2122; she told The Echo. The phone and email to

join Volunteer Marine Rescue Brunswick was also published incorrectly. The phone is 66 850 148 and the email is marinerescuensw@brunswick.com.au. The Liquor Accord article by Eve Jeffery (The Echo, January 18) stated that Cheeky Monkeys is across the road from the Byron Bay Preschool, which is incorrect as the Pre-school closed at that location last year. Flickerfest has been going for 16 years, not six, as published last week. Mungo McCallumâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s column last week also incorrectly named John Maynard Keynes as John Milton Keynes.

Rotaryâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Noel Oâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;Brian, Bruns SLSCâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Craig Reid, Russell Siwicki and the VRAâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Chris Foster all gathered at the Brunswick Heads Hotel on Australia Day where Russell, on behalf of the Bruns Pub, presented three cheques to the other three. Hotel fundraising made it possible for the Brunswick

SLSC to be $10,000 richer and the VRAâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s coffers $5,000 heavier. The hotel also kicked off their Flood Appeal by presenting $10,000 to Noel Oâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;Brian who is president of Rotary. The Woodchop Association has also donated $3,000 to the Flood Appeal. Photo supplied

Waving the flag for Snag Day Story & photo Eve Jeffery

Australia Day celebrations were more patriotic this year. The widening of Australia as an extended community during the floods may have caused people to embrace â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Snag and Flag Dayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;, or perhaps the growing US-led international trend of getting loud and proud is taking hold of the Land Down Under. This yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s celebrations started early in Brunswick Heads with a much loved family event, the traditional brekky in the Housie Tent in Banner Park. As ever, the Lions, Quota and Rotary kept the snags, onions and sauce rolling onto sangas, and the Bruns SLSC were on hand to brand punters with the Ozzie moniker. This event continues to look like a backyard party with Brunsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s closest 500 or so friends and guests sprawling over the lawns.

Whale campaigners back on dry land Whale conservation yacht, Migaloo 2, sailed into Brunswick Heads on Thursday, completing a 3500 km journey through the South Pacific. Skipper and whale conservationist Dean Jefferys says it took crew and himself five months to complete the journey, which started in American Samoa then sailed through Tonga, Fiji, Vanuatu and New Caledonia. ‘The aim of Migaloo 2 is to use it as a platform to raise awarness on important issues facing whales, dolphins and ocean health,’ he said. ‘The idea is to travel along the east coast of Australia during the humpback whale migration visiting ports along the way showing films and giving talks about these critical issues. ‘I also plan to do lots of live internet streaming from Migaloo 2 so the whole world, including the Japanese, can see what amazing beings the

whales and dolphins are. ‘In Tonga we experienced first hand these amazing creatures up close and on a number of times we swam with a mother and baby humpback whale which was an experience of a lifetime.’ Mr Jefferys plans to have an

open day on Migaloo 2 on Saturday February 5 in the Brunswick Harbour from midday. From 8pm, a documentary of the recent journey and footage of the Sea Shepherd anti-whaling campaigns will be screened in the open air, weather permitting.

Police attended an early morning party at Grays Lane in Tyagarah on Thursday morning following calls that assaults were taking place. The party followed on from Australia Day celebrations the previous Wednesday. ‘It was an unauthorised gathering on crown land,’ Darren Steele from Tweed Heads Local Area Command (LAC) told The Echo. ‘There were two assaults reported, and when police attended in the early hours they found a considerable amount of debris and a picnic table dislodged. Council workers had to come in after and clean up the mess.’ No arrests were made, but Twelve students from Mullumbimby’s Spaghetti Circus are heading to Tasmania for the 16th annual National Circus Festival.

IF YOU YEARN FOR SILKY SMOOTH HAIR, READ ON – we've tracked down the best treatments and products to transform your mane. From the ultra luxurious to the budget friendly, the Hair-Taming System, from $250, by Global Keratin at the Edge Hairdressing. What is it? An in-salon application of the protein Juvexin keratin aims to leave hair more manageable, softer and smoother. The hair is washed with a clarifying shampoo to open cuticles, then the keratin solution applied and the locks blow-dried and ironed straight. Hair can’t be washed for 48 hours – to allow the keratin to penetrate. Hair elastics and tucking behind the ears during this period are also not allowed as this may create kinks. The treatment contains no formaldehyde and each treatment lasts for up to four months, though repeated exposure to salt water can lessen its efficacy.

At the salon she loves all aspects of hairdressing but is passionate about junior training and education, creative competition work and photoshoots.

Story & photo Eve Jeffery

Vardit Kagan, pictured, got the shock of her life when she stepped on a snake on the way to her favourite swimming hole in Wilsons Creek two weeks ago. ‘I visit my friend every Saturday at Wilsons Creek. I have been doing it every weekend for a year.’ Vardit says she was walking with a group of friends and children when she stepped on the snake that she didn’t see until they both jumped into the air. She says that the snake bit her and disappeared into the bush before she had a chance to look at it. She says that her knowledge of snake-bite firstaid went out the window and instead of keeping still she ran up the hill to where her car was. The property owner soon bandaged the bite in the approved manner then rang ahead to the Mullumbimby hospital to alert them of her arrival. ‘We were driving down from Wilsons Creek and I became so nauseous,’ says Vardit who was driven to the hospital by her partner Moti. ‘By the time I got to the hospital I was in excruciating pain, my leg was throbbing and I started vomiting.’ After being assessed at Mullum it was decided to transport Vardit to Tweed Hospital where she says the medical staff were fearful for her life. A swab of the area showed that she had been envenom-

ated by neurotoxic bite; the standard test describes this as the bite of a Tiger Snake. After being treated with antivenin, she was transferred to the intensive care unit at Robina and the next 48 hours were a nightmare of pain and vomiting. The pain was so intense she begged medical staff to amputate her limb. ‘Just take it off!’ I screamed at them. ‘But they just gave me more morphine.’ Vardit stayed in the unit for a total of five days and on

the sixth, when she was transferred to the ward, she had had enough of hospital and returned to her home in Nana Street Brunswick Heads, where she is continuing her recovery. Vardit says the experience has been life changing for her in many ways. She has been on a physical and emotional roller coaster for two weeks, which the doctors said is to be expected when you have a bloodstream full of neurotoxic poison. She will also soon return to her native Israel as she

will be too unwell to work at her job at O’Sushi and therefore unable to keep up her financial commitment to study, which in turn will void her study visa. She and Moti will hold a garage sale on the weekend to raise funds to fly home in three weeks. We will never know for sure the species of snake, it is most likely that Vardit was bitten by a rough-scaled snake, of which there are plenty in Wilsons creek. Though the hospital said she was bitten by a tiger snake; studies have shown no records of tiger snakes in the Byron Shire. The closest known colony is the Border Ranges, but the standard Australian Venom Research Unit’s Snake Venom Detection Kit does not have an indicator for the rough-scaled snake, an animal whose venom is remedied by tiger snake antivenin. Vardit says even though she knows it is not so, she feels as if her leg is paralysed and she knows her recovery will be a slow process that could take up to a year but she bears the reptile no ill will. She says that she should have been more aware of what she was doing when she walked to the creek. ‘It was the first warm day after weeks of rain. I should have known snakes might be out. ‘I stepped on it. Of course it bit me. This has made me realise that I should have been more conscious and that consciousness is not about where you go but how you go.’

Beatrice with Pastor Joe, Flavia and Geoffery from Uganda

Members of the travelling choir troupe Watoto were in town last week. The choir and is made up of children who have lost one or both parents to AIDS or were forced into the Lord’s Resistance Army (LRA) as children. The Choir has toured most of the world, and the show is a blend of native African rhythms, contemporary gospel

music and ethnic dance. Beatrice, 17, Flavia, 16 and Geoffery, 19 are just three of the 1,300 children helped since the program began in 1994. Though 44 gigs in 59 days throughout Australia and New Zealand might seem gruelling to your average muso, the children see it as an adventure and the show only goes for one hour a day.

Local Profile

Honu Dawson – Byron’s Buddhist nun Venerable Honu Dawson is a thoroughly modern nun, fingernail running lightly over her red-sheathed iPhone as she makes a note to herself prior to our chat. She is probably best known in the Shire for her tireless work with Liberation Larder, an initiative she set up eighteen months ago in order to feed the poor and the homeless. What is it like being a Buddhist nun?

What do you feel is your main purpose?

The Dalai Lama has so many wonderful anecdotes and it’s easy for me to keep quoting him! He’d like to see Buddhism go out into the community and be useful – and that the Christians do it very well. But they don’t! Over Christmas l was the only one open – Vinnies, the Salvos, they were all closed. Every day over five days we had to open because they had nowhere else to go. And we had all that rain, those ter-

somewhere in there it definitely fell apart. I fell apart – I got under a table for two days and I couldn’t get out. I always do things in a big way! I was 46 or 47 and at that age I couldn’t hold my business together – it felt bizarre that people were working for me, and I was bringing in thousands of dollars and it didn’t feel right. That was when I knew that the only thing that made sense was me pulling it all together through Buddhism – none of the therapies I’d tried. So that was when I embraced it totally. I got rid of all my stock and gave everything away, ending up with a van I converted into a caravan. I studied Buddhism and did lay teaching.

Victoria Cosford

Buddhism in the West is very Catholic – they haven’t tweaked it to common sense; it’s not balanced with compassion. For example, they don’t look at you as a Buddhist nun of 66, they just look at you as a Buddhist nun! It’s very hard being a nun – you don’t get any money at all and you renounce everything. You rely on the generosity of the Buddhists – and everyone really. It’s less hairy for me because I have an oldage pension. The wonderful thing about any part of Buddhism is there’s no dogma. We have all the conditions in the system to challenge everything – there’s no obedience, no blind faith. You have permission to challenge and question.

How did Liberation Larder come about?

Liberation Larder came about because of the month’s silent retreat in Wales I attended where the question came to me – what are you going to do? Feed the homeless in Byron was the answer. I’m planning lots of other things but essentially I’m here now. I am here, but this isn’t the end of it. Liberation Larder is just a cover – I knew there was an underbelly here that wasn’t good – so Liberation Larder is my way of finding out what’s really going on and what I can do about it.

As usual, Stewart has the final say: â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;People who owned horses wished that cars didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t show up, but they did. And then they had to get out of the way.â&#x20AC;&#x2122; Our insatiable hunger for energy usage isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t going away, and to replace the combustion engine will take much more than fracking.

by Mungo MacCallum that many of those who have contributed to the various relief appeals resent the idea that they are being asked to pay twice. It is no good explaining, as Gillard has attempted to, that the new levy is for an entirely different purpose; the charities are for direct assistance to flood victims while the Commonwealth has to cover the less glamorous task of rebuilding the public infrastructure. It still feels like double dipping, and we all know thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s unAustralian. And all this, of course, assumes that the levy is going to get through the parliament; incredibly it now appears that Gillard failed to negotiate with the Greens and independents before announcing it, and they are now engaged in a barrage of public nit-picking, using the issue to push their power agendas. The Greens are angry that the savings have concentrated on knocking off climate change projects and the independents want a permanent natural disaster fund. They will probably

servative commentators and The Australian, thus proving conclusively that it is not in Laborâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s best interests. Once again, the government has submitted to fighting on its opponentsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; ground. But at least she does not suffer from the full-blown death wish which afflicts her state counterpart, Kristina Kenneally. The New South Wales Premier greeted the announcement of a levy with a plea for the poor, put-upon residents of her home state. They were suffering, she explained, from the high cost of living, especially in Sydney; surely they could be spared the levy on compassionate grounds? Decades of Labor government in what was once the premier state have stuffed up land policy, transport policy, tax policy and everything else so badly that conditions are now truly desperate; the residents are no longer able to forgo that extra weekly cup of coffee to help repair the worst natural disaster in the countryâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s history.

nteresting as all this is, it seems somewhat parochial compared to what is happening overseas, especially in Egypt. The immediate reaction is one of pleasure and hope; at last the oppressed are rising against the loathsome and corrupt Hosni Mubharak and his murderers and torturers. Long live people power. But unhappily it is not quite as simple as that. We have been here before. The overthrow of the Shah of Iran seemed, at the time, like a pretty good idea â&#x20AC;&#x201C; until his replacement, the Ayatollah Khomeini, set up a religious dictatorship that has proved even more oppressive than its predecessor and considerably more dangerous to the rest of the world. Nobody liked Saddam Hussein in Iraq much, either; but his removal has resulted not in democracy, but in an ongoing struggle between religious sects seeking absolute power. The same could easily happen in Egypt, where the Moslem Brotherhood, a gang (there is no other word) of fundamentalists, looks the only group sufficiently organised to fill the power vacuum which would result from the downfall of Mubharak. And this is the catch. However horrible the current tyrant of Egypt may be, he is (like his equally unlovable counterparts in Syria, Jordan, Saudi Arabia and even Pakistan), essentially a secular ruler; he has to be, to retain power. He is, of course, a Moslem, but he is not an extremist; indeed, he is a bulwark against extremism, which is one reason (though not the only one) why he retains the support of the United States. The lesser of two evils; better the devil we know â&#x20AC;Ś it may be questionable morality, but it is Realpolitik.

Biodiversity and the Blues Festival of the NSWâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s foremost ecologists, David Milledge, described Councilâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s apparent failures in respect to their approval of the extra day for the Blues Festival (Letters, Janury 18). Council appears to ignore the perilous plight of the koala on the north coast and the evidence of adverse effects in the Tyagarah area and has failed to invoke their Precautionary Principle and follow their Biodiversity Conservation Strategy. A Blues Festivalâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s response to these serious questions is necessary but unlikely. David observes the eroding of the Councilâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s green image. My observation from longterm experience is that the green movement is represented by aspiring professional â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;greenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; politicians (with exceptions) that present little more than a green veneer. The place for green politicians is to serve and promote a green movement of the people rather than further alienate grass roots environmentalists with a continual

barrage of decisions such as the wrong. You canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t stop â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;progressâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;. Blues Festival extra day. Our Council has let us down Richard Whitling once again.

Of these koalas a dozen were radio-collared and tracked. The consultantsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; observations included attributes indicative of isolation and genetic stress. That three of the tracked koalas died prior to the 2010 festival and three more afterwards causes intense sadness in our members. Councilâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s approval of the original DA and subsequent s96 modifications and amendments renders the remaining koalasâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; safety contingent on the take-up of the management recommendations.

Retravision and Icon Books are just two of the most recent examples. 3. Holiday letting has made it very difficult for townspeople to find a place to live. 4. The high profits from

holiday letting have driven the price of real estate upward, so that recent buyers have trouble meeting their mortgage payments even with the high income from holiday letting. 5. Tourism admittedly has benefited our town with lots of nice restaurants. But high rents have caused many restaurants to crowd too many tables into small spaces, making the restaurants noisy. The meals are expensive as well. The quest for tourism has

driven our town into a vicious circle. Byron United wants more tourism to support local businesses, but tourism is driving those very businesses into financial trouble because tourism causes high rents.

Q Mandyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s got it right. The The con-

trast between last weekâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s front page news and Mandy Nolanâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s article was an eye-opener. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m with Mandy. Byron United, the public relations arm of business parading as a support group for community and environment, does not appear to be fazed by a Byron Bay bursting at the seems. The silly seasonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s so called â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;devastatingâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; tourist numbers were not evident when trying to enter the town and find a parking spot at The Pass or a table at the Beach Hotel. Local and state governments are embarrassingly inept at providing Byron Bay the most basic infrastructure required to cater for the sort of tourism they dream about. Maybe we could ask the Swiss to fix Lighthouse Road.

Great news! Something new is happening at Mullumbimbyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Ex-Services Clubâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Bowlo Restaurant, on Jubilee Avenue!

An American in Byron I am an American tourist who has spent the past four Januarys in your fair Shire (without any encouragement from Oprah!) and find it to be one of the finest spots in all the world. I especially appreciate the intense desire of your community to maintain the enviromental integrity of beaches, mountains, air and water in the face of so much pressure from hordes of visitors such as myself. Living in a farming community, at home I have become sensitive to the pollution of night skies by ambient light given off by commercial and

municipal sources, and would suggest that Byron Shire and the town of Byron Bay could address this issue inexpensively and quickly for the benefit of all. Many communities in the United States now require that ambient night lighting be controlled by means of a simple bonnet-like cover, which directs light downward but not laterally or into the sky. As I walk on the beach here at night admiring the southern stars, I must look away from the town and certain shore areas to enjoy this beauty. Light pollution also has an effect on many

types of wild creatures which move and feed nocturnally. On a more controversial note, I hope the Shire can reach a mutually agreeable way to allow beachfront landowners to protect their cherished investments with their own funds and in an environmentally sound manner. Many such examples exist along Belongil Beach and others should be encouraged to do the same without the need to absorb scarce public funds on legal bills or remediation expense.

him off â&#x20AC;&#x2122;. The reason large multinational businesses are selling for less is quite simply because they pay less for stock (and often for wages too). This is partly due to the fact that they buy in larger quanities, and partly because this buying power allows them to dictate what price they are prepared to pay. The producer can either accept that rate (no matter what the cost to them) or lose the business. Business is business, hey?! The crucial thing to understand is that once weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve all rejected small business into extinction, the big guys will no longer have a reason to keep their prices down. No competition. Why would they keep selling for less (even though they will no doubt still buy for less). Now, donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t get me wrong, Alan. I love a bargain. I live on a budget. After all, Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m a small business owner myself. So even though I understand the consequences of my choices, I

shop where it is cheapest. Councils and governments need to recognise the benefits of competition, and the appeal of having a range of small, interesting, creative businesses available to their ratepayers, and visitors. Perhaps they could come to the party with reduced rates and taxes to landlords who rent commercial premises to small locally owned business, provided that those savings are passed on in reduced rents. This would go a long way to helping the small business remain competitive.

Comment

For tourism to work, we need to engage the community Jim Beatson gives his account of the workings of Byron Shire’s Tourism Advisory Committee at the end of its first year. n January 2010 Byron Shire Council created the Tourism Advisor y C ommittee to advise Council on ‘the sustainable development, marketing and management of tourism, including events and other cultural initiatives, representing the interests of both the tourism industry and resident communities across the Shire, with regard for the social, environmental and economic benefit of the Byron Shire community’. Great, but was it going to be a time waster for those appointed? Before our first meeting we received 100 pages of what appeared to be agenda-setting reading material from Council. But from the TAC’s very early meetings Byron Shire Council’s General Manager, Graeme Faulkner, and Committee Chair, Basil Cameron, instructed us in no uncertain terms that the TAC was our committee. And ‘free to ignore any presumed agenda from Council or its staff ’. Of the nine TAC reps, plus two councillors, Basil Cameron and Simon Richardson, I was appointed as one of three community members, presumably a result of being an activist in the Byron Core Values Group. The other six represented tourism interests. We all regarded the importance of tourism to our local economy as a given.

ewind. I am sitting in Byron Theatre at September’s public launch of Byron United’s My Byron Day (MBD), a campaign understandably driven by the downturn in local business. I’m surprised that much of MBD’s imagery – expensively dressed models in empty, expensive shops fingering expensive goods, with a few predictable phrases in the narration about beaches, healing, markets and the environment – didn’t really get to grips with the attraction of Byron being radically different from ‘Noosa without the high rise’. Three months on I am excited by what the TAC has achieved, love being a member of the TAC and look forward to the year of implementation, 2011. BU’s incoming president, Sevegne Newton, assures that it is early days for MBD and there is time enough to modify imagery and messages. I am pleased to report Byron United has successfully nominated one of its members, Samaya Zakay, to fill a casual TAC vacancy. Perhaps BU may invite TAC participation in MBD? Now that would be Byron united. It’s time all Byron’s stakeholders spoke honestly to each other without abuse or threat of litigation. From its outset TAC agreed that a successful local tourism

strategy is dependent on receiving popular support. The strategy needs to reflect Byron’s ‘community values’. Hence our first significant decision, aside from deciding to postpone discussion on a proposed tourism rate levy, was to take time thoroughly documenting local community values. We established the Core Values Project Reference Group Sub-Committee, which took several meetings, many hours and a whale-sized electronic white board to determine its 19 points (see www.byron.nsw. gov.au/committees/tourismadvisory-committee then click on PDF 9 December 2010 page 6). Note the TAC’s workings are transparent and all documentation can be found here. s the meetings progressed the personalities of TAC members quickly became apparent. We were all in awe of Ian Oelrichs’ detailed knowledge of eco-tourism promotion under taken around the world and his frequent involvement in them as a consultant. Another TAC member, Kim Rosen, provided practical inspiration in developing the Brunswick Heads ‘Simple Pleasures’ campaign which matched community values with a saleable brand for the town and local tourism. Both

Katharine Myres and Kim (representing Byron and Bruns Visitor Information Centres respectively) showed how much can be done on a very small budget. Byron Council’s Tourism Officer, Sarah Workman, is a constant source of industry knowledge and statistics, who, together with Crs Basil Cameron and Simon Richardson, inform the TAC on how to best address Council procedures. Space precludes each member’s contribution. But time and again when determining Byron Shire’s character, TAC members were drawn to real examples, not images.

arrival, we felt it did represent the desire of our Shire. Next, members of a second Project Reference Group subcommittee moved on to develop a Tourism Branding Brief. The creative figure behind the highly successful 100% Pure New Zealand campaign (www.tourismnewzealand. com/campaigns), Alan Morden, was invited to contribute his ideas and experience to this Brand Development group. Alan, a local living in Byron for the past decade, exudes enthusiasm for our Shire, reflected in his work on the Mullum Farmers Market and New Brighton Farmers Market (www.newbrightonfarmersmarket.org. au, www.newbrightonfarmersmarket.org.au) campaigns. Expressions of interest will be sent to agencies and consultants to undertake the design and implementation stage of the Branding Brief early this year. Council has the opportunity to seek a dollar-for-dollar matching grant for a $30,000 Visitor Destination Survey from Tourism NSW to gauge the Brief ’s effectiveness.

across through notices in public and tourism spaces: rental accommodation, places of entertainment, undersides of admission tickets and on local websites all hot-linked to a purposed website, designed to speak directly to visitors and to influence their,

and our, peer groups. For such a Tourism Plan to work it needs to actively engage ordinary Byron citizens, not just the loudest voices, so that the whole community knows it owns this plan. If they don’t, we may be just pissing in an idiot wind.

A remarkable bird is the binocular tawny frogmouth Story & photo Mary Gardner

The look in those eyes makes me step back. With that, the bird’s face changes. Satisfied, it half closes its eyes. I am dismissed. Later, as I examine the series of photographs I took of our encounter, I see what I only sensed at the time in the gathering twilight. From one picture to the next, a red tinge to the outer edges of the iris intensifies and then fades. This is the stern silent warning of the tawny frogmouth (Podargus strigoides). Few birds have facial expressions that humans can read. Some, such as seagulls, experience a change in eye colour with age. But only frogmouths change eye colour and glower. There is an artery circling each iris that expands and reddens each eye in moments before the bird raises its hackles. I read this in Gisela Kaplan’s five-year-old book Tawny Frogmouth. Kaplan is an international expert in animal behaviour with her own bird rescue centre at her home in Armidale. Her book, published by the CSIRO, is a treasure trove. I love to read a comprehensive book about a species. There’s nothing quite like ‘animal facts’. Did you know that a tawny frogmouth can move its eyes in opposite directions as well as bringing them together in three different ways to see depth? This makes their binocular vision, in day or night, wider than that of most birds. Now I can read my photos better. The one with that quizzical ‘over the beak’ face is the bird getting a better fix of me. All the ‘animal facts’ will make me a better animal tracker. With their eyes half shut, their brain half awake, they literally have ‘half an eye out’ for any movement. Camouflage

grey, they will sit motionless most of the day. Their feet have special pads along their whole length to make them comfortable. Two toes go forward, one goes back and one does both and also reach to the side. This toe is for balance when perching, taking a great deal of the total weight. These same feet help classify the frogmouth as a nightjar not an owl. There are no sharp grasping talons. Both types of birds are active at night. But unlike owls, the frogmouth searches for food on the ground, pounces on it from above or catches it mid-flight with its mouth. Deeper in the book, I am thrilled to learn that frogmouths are territorial and will hold to a place over many years. Their bond with a mate is also long term. The pairs particularly favour open wooded areas, edges of forests and clearings. They manage tropical and temperate climates. They like towns or cities. They adapt to people. All they want is a stable perch and a good supply of insects and small rodents like mice and rats. Moths, cockroaches, ants, termites, snails, slugs – they love all these.

Surely, now that I know where to look, I could see more of them around. Undoubtedly, they are welcome by every householder as the preferred insect and rodent controllers. But even as they make a living of our pests, they are being killed by our pesticides. This is a subtle process. Many of the poisons work on insects and rodents slowly. The frogmouths pick off sick and dying animals as well as healthy ones. In an ecosystem, this is exactly their role. The birds, like every verte-

brate, digest their food and store compounds such as certain pesticides in their own body fat. At the end of winter, before the spring flush of insects, numbers of prey are reduced. The birds lose weight. As they live off their body fat, the neurotoxins are released. They fall to the ground in convulsions, doomed to an agonising, slow death. There is no treatment. Kaplan carefully notes that 70 to 80 per cent of each year’s chicks die. New adults and old rarely travel further than ten kilometres. Is their population growing or declining? Does any householder report the appearance of too many birds? Kaplan describes the affectionate birds as an ‘icon’. Her work, over ten years, is the largest ever completed. Her study group is of only 46 birds. There is no recent population study. Although overseas, citizens are involved in counts of nocturnal birds, I have not located any such project here. Can we be so complacent? We also need to see each specific step that connects us to these birds. Pests, like weeds, are simply animals where we don’t want them. So our first

efforts must involve preventing their entry. A free online book by Stephen Tvedten (www. thebestcontrol.com) explains the many actions we can take before resorting to pesticides. This approach, taking housekeeping to a new level, is an example of Integrated Pest Management (IPM). The final step may be to weave a new conservation lifeline, modeled on New Zealand’s

rescue of their black robins. We snitch an extra egg from each clutch and a chick from each nest. We raise these and set them up in the collective areas of largely chemical-free households. Birds and us – we’re all healthier. We get to know each other better. Leaving behind more of our old frightened ignorant ways, we can finally be – and we can finally have – a real friend in Nature.

for the dog, the cyclist and motorists. I also however feel sorry for those dogs that are exercised by bike on the footpaths. If their owners could see their dogs’ expression they would realise not many of them appear to be enjoying themselves. I realise the owners are acting out of the best intentions, to keep their dogs fit and healthy but I doubt if this sort of repetitive structural exercise is what dogs themselves would choose. If dogs are subject to vanity I doubt its basis lies in their physical appearance; they are

possibly proud of their smell or maybe male dogs are proud of how far they can piss up a telegraph pole. They don’t really care if they are fat or not. One dog’s idea of a good time is what I call a mock hunt – chasing balls or sticks and exploring smells. With my last dog I used to say that her legs were just a propulsion device to propel the nose. Male dogs like to post their free mail and dogs of both sexes like to collect it. You often see dogs running beside a bike jerking their heads and even attempting to stop to sample interesting smells but are not

allowed to and dragged on their way regardless. I realise a lot of dog owners feel it is a quick and easy way to give their dogs exercise but I’m quite sure some of the dogs would prefer more freeform play on your local dog beach. David Gilet

Coupled with this, vehicles that are idling in a traffic jam, like that on the approach into Byron, are producing more emissions. At the same time we have Byron United, whinging and trying to attract more day trippers and no doubt more cars! Just what we need – not.

Plant a tree Recently several correspondents have complained about the drab appearance of Byron Bay. Perhaps a relatively inexpensive solution for the Council would be a big shady tree planted in the median strip at the corner of Jonson and Byron Streets. It would provide shade, shelter, and a verdant streetscape in an especially barren area of the Byron Bay CBD.

On 1 January 2011, Australia’s first national Paid Parental Leave scheme was introduced. It’s a new entitlement for working parents, funded by the Australian Government.

Jeff Harrison

Taking time away from work for a new baby is a common part of working life. Paid Parental Leave will help parents spend time with a new baby, and help employers retain skilled staff. What is Paid Parental Leave? Eligible working parents may get 18 weeks Government-funded pay at the National Minimum Wage, currently $570 a week before tax, to help them care for a new baby. Parents who adopt may also be eligible. Am I eligible? Full-time, part-time, casual, seasonal, contract and self-employed workers may be eligible. You must have worked at least 330 hours (just over one day a week) for 10 of the 13 months before your new baby arrives. You can have

up to an 8 week unpaid break between two working days and still be eligible. You can earn up to $150,000 a year (individual salary) and still be eligible. Is it for both parents? Yes, usually the mother must apply for Paid Parental Leave. If you are eligible, you can transfer some or all of the pay to your partner (they need to be eligible too). The scheme gives families more options to balance work and family. When can I take it? You can claim up to three months in advance, and your pay can start at any time you choose from when your child is born or adopted. It will be paid in one continuous period from the start date and must all be taken within the first year after the birth or adoption. You are encouraged to apply early.

Byron Bay

What about employer-provided entitlements? Eligible parents can receive Parental Leave pay at the same time, before or after other employer-provided paid leave or entitlements. The existing minimum entitlement to 12 months unpaid parental leave for long-term employees is unchanged.

Cancelled market

What does it mean for employers? From 1 July 2011, employers must provide Government-funded Parental Leave pay through their usual pay cycle to eligible employees who have been with their business for at least 12 months. Other eligible parents will be paid through the Family Assistance Office.

I was left rather deflated the other Saturday after walking down to the Mullum market in very fine weather to find out it had been cancelled. Oh my, what a disappointment. Having grown up in Darwin where there are three weekly markets run successfully during the wet season, I am wondering why we have to cancel markets here in this area. Outdoor markets rock but surely there could be an alternative venue for the days it is just too impossible to be outside. On my way home after finding out Mullum market had been cancelled I walked past Mullum High School – could that not be a venue for the Mullum market when the weather is too bad? I could picture stalls on the verandas and surely the high school would appreciate the extra income. My heart goes out to all the stall holders who yet again didn’t make a buck due to bad weather or in last Saturday’s case, actually not such bad weather. Veet Karen

North Coast Medical Centre Welcomes DR KELLY BRENNAN to the practice

Byron Living Tao has reopened its doors for 2011 with a full program of Taiji (also known as Tai Chi), Qigong (Chi Kung) and Hapkiyusul (pronounced Hap Kee Yoo Sool). These traditional health and martial arts provide comprehensive physical and mental training and are practised for superior health and quality of life. The smooth circular forms of Taiji cultivate inner strength, deep relaxation and a peaceful mind. Taiji is particularly beneficial for postural alignment, balance, coordination and strengthening of the joints and bones. The soft spiralling moves of Qigong gently exercise the entire body and develop deep breathing. They enhance the health of the organs and improve the functioning of the respiratory, digestive, nervous and immune systems. The dynamic martial art techniques of Hapkiyusul promote harmonious energy. They improve health, fitness, flexibility, focus and Sensory nerves conduct information from the cells of the body to the self-confidence. spinal cord and brain. One nerve cell (neuron) tells you one kind of sensation. Some neurons are fast fibres and some are slow fibres. Pain fibres are slow fibres and that is why an injury hurts more after you stop moving. Nerves that tell us about joint position and stretch in muscles, ligaments and tendons are fast (myelinated) fibres. That is how we can respond quickly to movement. Your central nervous system takes in all the sensory information and responds by sending messages back to the cells, tissues and organs Specialising in all facials including to keep you in a state of health and balance (homeostasis).

Healthy weight helps with healthy mind A new Australian study has found middle-aged Australians carrying excess weight are more likely to be anxious and depressed than their healthy-weight counterparts. Queensland-based researchers collected data on the physical and mental health of more than 1,200 volunteers, grouping them according to their weight and mental health. Obese participants, who were aged 45 to 54 years, were more likely to report that emotional problems had affected their work or social activities, and were less likely to have felt calm and peaceful in the month prior to the study, compared with normal-weight and overweight participants. Dietitians Association of Australia spokesperson Lisa Renn said carrying too much weight affects physical health and poorer health is linked with anxiety, depression and lower levels of wellbeing. â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;If youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re carrying too much weight, odds on youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re more anxious or depressed than you need to be. Losing this weight is associated with a better quality of life, improved mood, better self-esteem, and a more positive attitude to life. So eating better food and being active will help you feel healthy and happy.â&#x20AC;&#x2122; 6KHVDLGDĂ°YHWRWHQSHUFHQWUHGXFWLRQLQZHLJKW from a baseline starting weight can make all the difference.

Fiona Meiklejohn â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Nutritional Therapist The importance of adequate nutrition to the human body is undeniable. Most imbalances in the body, such as fatigue, PMT, weight issues, anxiety/depression, heart disease and low immunity can be connected to how we feed our bodies. In our busy lives, making an informed choice about what we eat can be confusing. Fiona can help you make the right dietary and supplementation choices, and teach you how they can help us grow, thrive and both prevent and cure imbalances and disease. Call 0409 546 250 (business hours only).

Christina Turner, Accredited Practising Dietitian at Sol North Coast Nutrition, says â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Health messages are everywhere. Unfortunately it is getting harder and harder to tell fact from ďŹ ction. Our service aims to help community members decipher the health messages, make dietary changes, still enjoy their food and put the sol back into their eating.â&#x20AC;&#x2122; Sol is running weekly clinics at Byron Community Centre and Ballina Community Services Centre.

The Dietitians Association of Australiaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s tips for â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;feeling topsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;: Start with the right fuel.

One treatment can be life changing. The Atlas supports your head and governs structural alignment. A misaligned Atlas causes restriction of the brain stem, spinal cord, cranial nerves and arteries. This limits our potential for wellbeing and creates tension, restricting the free flow of energy. When the Atlas is installed correctly, the body begins an unwinding process, releasing holding patterns and enabling the body to heal and regenerate.

AtlasPROfilax – how is it different from other modalities?

Massage Therapy Career

This unique method safely and gently relaxes the deepest tissue attaching the atlas to the base of the skull, thereby erasing holding patterns without any manipulation of the spine. The release is permanent as the head rests securely on the atlas and the dural torque of the whole spine releases. This immediately corrects imbalanced pelvis and leg lengths. The following issues may be the result of a misaligned atlas: neck, back, joint pain; headaches; allergies; asthma; attention deficit; fibromyalgia; herniated discs; insomnia; scoliosis; numbness and tingling; sinusitus; TMJ; tendonitis; anxiety; depression.

A Very Naughty Girl PROVOCATIVE, IRREVERENT, CONTROVERSIAL, ENTERTAINING AND ARTISTIC â&#x20AC;&#x201C; AMANDA PALMER CONTINUES TO PUSH THE BOUNDARIES AS THE QUEEN OF PUNK CABARET. â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;AMANDA PALMER GOES DOWN UNDERâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; IS THE LATEST OFFERING FROM THIS SOLO ARTIST. ONLY RECENTLY MARRIED TO WRITER NEIL GAIMAN, MS PALMER IS ALREADY ON THE ROAD. AMANDA SPOKE WITH SEVEN ON THE EVE OF HER BYRON SHOW. Amanda, in regards to your relationship, how do you make it work with such different demands on you both? It'â&#x20AC;&#x2122;s sometimes very easy, since we have such an intimate understanding of each otherâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s pressures and schedules. But when we collide it isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t easy â&#x20AC;Ś so we try to balance our work and life with extreme care. Neil just did a guest spot for me at the Sydney Opera House for my record release party and I banished him from my dressing room so I could focus, but the nearest free dressing room was miles away in the building (â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;banished to New Zealand,â&#x20AC;&#x2122; he said). These may sound like petty problems but when youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re two homeless travelling people living out of a suitcase, things can get hairy. We solve everything by talking a lot about whatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s going on and trying to address stuff as itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s happening. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the only way.  What is the perfect relationship for you? Do you think that women still carry a secret dream that some day a Prince will turn up to save them from decision making and cellulite? Of course. Everybody wants a quick fix. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve been in and out of love many times, and Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve ended many relationships. I think one of the keys to having a successful one is to realise that itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s an ever-shifting collaboration â&#x20AC;&#x201C; the rules that apply one day donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t necessarily remain the next day, so your ears and your heart have to be constantly open to the changing weather of the relationship climate. Neil is good at doing this; weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re both very committed to learning from each other. This makes him pretty perfect. How do you approach writing about love or heartbreak in your songs? Do you personalise it, or do you use it only as a starting point? Well, if you listen to my songs, theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re intensely personal, but I often try to universalise things deliberately. It makes for better art, I think, and makes thing relatable But sometimes the minutely personal detail in a sea of vague lyrics can really hammer in the nail. You have such a distinctive style as a performer â&#x20AC;&#x201C; how did you find your â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;voiceâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; â&#x20AC;Ś how do you use your performance as a whole to communicate your music? Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m a big fan of not knowing the answer to this question. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve been following my bizarre impulses since day one and it seems to be working out all right â&#x20AC;&#x201C; so thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s always what I encourage others to do. It takes a lot of balls to simply do things the

way you imagine them in your head, but after a shocked silence you usually earn peopleâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s respect. Most people are afraid to follow their inner impulses and simply imitate or copy what they see. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s harder, and possibly lonelier (for a while) to translate your own uniqueness from your head onto a stage or onto a page, but itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s what people actually crave. Nobody is ever truly moved by Xerox music. How does the character of the piano that you play influence the songs that you write? A musician I interviewed once said that he thought pianos held the songs, and all he did was find them â&#x20AC;Ś do you agree? If I were a better piano player, I might agree. But I use the piano as a chord-banging tool. I think we find our inspiration in everything, in anything. Strum a ukulele. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll probably turn into something if you start singing. Why did you decide to embark on a solo career? I was tired of being in a band all the time.

E N T E R T A I N M E N T How have your years as a street performer influenced what you do on stage? I once did a stint, and I think itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s some of the hardest work you can do! Street performing is, I think, the best school any performing artist can attend. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the absolutely hardest place to cut your teeth, since youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve got so many obstacles. I think my years on the street really shaped me a hell of a lot; you can't perform out there for that many years and not become brave. After the street, the stage feels like a soft, safe little playground. You busked as a living statue as an eight-foot white bride. How do people respond to statues â&#x20AC;Ś do they hurt you? Or expect you to suddenly do something? Do they want you to crack? Oh, all of the above. I encountered some real extremes of love and hate up on that pedestal. But I cherished all of it. You were in Australia only recently. Why have you returned so soon? Because I love it here and want to make more of a home here. My time in Byron Bay last summer was one of the most peaceful few days of my entire year â&#x20AC;Ś Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m planning to spend a whole chunk of time swimming naked at night in Byron Bay and looking at the stars. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve been craving that since I left. What should we expect for the show that youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll be performing in Byron Bay? Lots of things, this is a very schizophrenic tour â&#x20AC;Ś so there are very silly songs and very sad songs and lots of my crazy friends on stage, as usual. My last show in Byron was a blast; I expect this one will be even better. Things always tend to improve once an audience and I have met before â&#x20AC;&#x201C; itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s like a second date where you donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t feel as weird about making out. Amanda Palmer performs her Map of Tassie and other new hits at the Hotel Great Northern on Thursday 10th February. Tickets available from Oztix 1300 762 545 or www.thenorthern.oztix.com. au.

THE DEATH OF DOOF I remember the first doof I went to. I was about 25. It was a three day dance marathon held up at Maccaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s campground somewhere in Main Arm. It wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t easy to find. In fact, I think that finding it was the first part of the challenge. We traipsed along a winding bush track in the pitch dark for what felt like an hour but was probably only 15 minutes. We couldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t see it, but we could certainly hear it. A distant throbbing echoed in the forest like the heartbeat of some giant creature. Finally we emerged. A couple of feral fairies wearing fluffy flares crouched around a chai pot in a makeshift teepee at the entrance, gesturing that we make some sort of donation. I left $4 and an angel card affirmation. They smiled their beatific gratitude and handed me a cup. I felt like Alice when she fell down the rabbit hole. My eyes were still adjusting to the darkness, making out writhing silhouettes everywhere. It was like walking into a giant shared acid trip. Even though I was straight I could feel the giant human pulse bending my consciousness. It was so overpowering I had to sit down and just watch for the first few hours. Hardcore ferals who hadnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t left the forest for a decade flung their rope-like dreadlocks around with abandon and shimmied in their laplaps. There were middle aged women gyrating, old hippy blokes with their shirts off, beautiful young men laughing, dancing, rolling joints around fires. There were pretty women breastfeeding tiny babies. There were young kids curled up sleeping on sheepskins, teenagers dancing with exuberant abandon and goddesses writhing like they were part of some primitive Mayan ceremony. I kept waiting to see the forest open with a huge stone slab for human sacrifice. I felt like I was witnessing something tribal, something ancient, yet, ironically, something electric, modern

and completely subversive. I couldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t recognise anyone. Yet I knew at least half of them. It was like the whole place had morphed into this enormous pulsing being, and all the little bodies were just segments of a greater entity. I drank more chai. I think I nearly had a ginger overdose. Some people had mushrooms. Or acid. Or they smoked a little weed. But mainly people just got off on the vibe. No one was drunk. There wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t a drop of alcohol in the place. If there had then the magic would have gone. The magic was there because there wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t any booze, just a bunch of whacky people dancing with open hearts. I am not a fan of doof music. In fact it gives me a headache, but of the many doofs I attended, I loved the way it felt, and the way people looked. Doofs were about creating an experience for people to come together outside of conventional club or pub scenes. Doofs were about what could happen without alcohol. I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t ever remember fights or glassings. The only injuries were from hugs that lasted hours and someone pressing the wrong pressure point during an impromptu reflexology massage. The Doof at Tyagarah the other day made me feel sad. No longer an intergenerational meeting place, theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve become the exclusive haunt of the very young. Kids as young as 13 or 14 getting shitfaced on booze, carloads of Nimbin ice dealers performing the odd glassing; there are fights, broken glass, discarded Bacardi Breezer bottles, and rubbish everywhere. As much as I loved the doofs I went to, Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve always felt that the idea of staging a mass public event in nature questionable. Surely itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s an environmental assault on all the little critters who were just going about their own tiny little lives. But couldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t you just clean up? The violence of smashed bottles and crushed beer cans in nature in the light of our environmental awareness is unbelievable.

This is the utopian hippy belt; we fed our kids organic vegetables, they wore handfelted vests and were chemical free â&#x20AC;Ś until they grew up and started smoking ice and trashing the forest and each other. I am so tired of the violence. I am so tired of the lack of responsibility. I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t want to sound like some nasty old Nanna putting shit on the younger generation. You know, I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t actually blame the kids. I blame us. Where are the adults? Where are the parents of these 13-, 14-, 15- and 16-year-olds who are getting out of their minds on booze? Who teaches their kids to become accountable for their behaviour? Teaches boys not to rape pretty girls when theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re out of it, or not to drive when theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re pissed? Or to respect their bodies and their planet? Parenting doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t stop once your child is 11 or 12. You actually are supposed to love and protect your child to adulthood. The legal age to drink is 18. The legal age to have sex is 16. That means thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s still a shitload of parenting to do. And itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not pretty. These are still children. And these parties arenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t doofs. Theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re alcohol-fuelled anarchy. Letting your kids go there is akin to leaving an infant sleeping in the middle of the road: youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re not protecting them from danger. So, next Australia Day maybe you should put that beer down and keep your kids at home, or maybe make yourself Designated Driver and go out dancing with them. Who knows, maybe if all we crusty oldies get off our wrinkled butts and start shaking a bit of Nanna titty the kids will want to stay home after all. (In the next couple of weeks The Byron Youth Service and Buddi will be launching the Mobile Youth Outreach Service â&#x20AC;&#x201C; funded from money from the Proceeds of Crime Act to be attending events like these so that at least someone will be looking out for our kids.)

Live

Out of the Shower, Into the Light   ‘Singing in a gospel choir is one of the ultimate musical highs,’ testifies Byron’s new gospel choir director Jessie Vintila. With a lifetime of experience in performing, music teaching, composing, choir directing and fronting the nationally renowned good vibes merchants The Lucky Wonders, Jessie would know about musical highs. Research has shown that the number of choirs in a region is an indicator of overall wellbeing. Jessie discovered her love of gospel music when she attended a workshop run by Tony Backhouse in Perth nine years ago. Tony Backhouse is a leading figure in bringing gospel music to Australia from the thriving scene in the USA. An introductory night is being held at 7pm on Tuesday 8th Feb at Doublebassment, 144 Jonson St, beneath the Hapkido Centre, and opposite Mitre 10 and Wicked Weasel. Cost $12. This is a chance to try it out before signing up for the first term which will be every Tuesday for five weeks, from 5th March. Cost $60. Please bring water to drink. Bookings appreciated: 0408 332 361 or contact@theluckywonders.com.

Premal and Miten CORRECTION

It’s all in the Timing

Last week I made a big boo-boo and said that the Deva Premal and Miten concert was at the community centre. It’s not. It’s actually at the Bangalow A&I Hall. Organisers are planning a sumptuous night of transformational chanting in a venue that will be magnificently decorated. There’s even an Indian Vegetarian Feast available before the concert. The concert with these two chanting heavyweights will be happening on Friday 18th February. Check out some of the Dalai Lama’s fave tunes. Tix are on www.oztix.com.au.

Positive Timing is a multicultural eight-piece reggae fusion band, with the musicians hailing from as far and wide as France, Mexico, Argentina, Malta, Japan and Australia. This world collective is a melting pot of passion, talent and inspiration. The rootsy rhythms, powerful horns, dynamic vocals and conscious lyrics of humanity are what make Positive Timing … at the Byron Brewery on Saturday.

Speaker in the Tree Friday sees funk outfit, Mr Speaker, returning to the Treehouse for an evening of soul, blues and whatever else happens on the night. Like moths to a flame, the band are quite enamoured with the on-stage decor, deriving no end of comfort from its crimson velvet drapery and gentle, reassuring warmth, with one member likening it to ‘playing in a lovely big velvet womb’.  Great music and great food. What could be better? From 7pm.

Mullum Fest Tree Plant At the Mullumbimby Music Festival last year more than $1200 was raised by festival-goers and the festival for their planned tree planting. The Mullumbimby Community Gardens and The Mullum Music Festival invite all of Mullumbimby and beyond to their first annual Tree Plant, happening on Saturday 12 February. The music festival also donated 100 plants. Come along and help out with the planting. There will be food and drink available and entertainment provided by Sara Tindley, M Jack Bee and Rebecca Ireland. 10am–2pm rain, hail or shine at the Mullum Community Gardens, south end of Stuart Street.

not knowing, between innocence and experience. As a prolific artist and committed teacher, Taylor has played a crucial role in the visual arts in the Northern Rivers area. This exhibition entitled Songs of Love and Hope provides a survey of more than 40 years of work by Taylor, one of the region’s most respected artists and longest-practising artists. His exhibition opens on Friday at the Lismore Regional Gallery at 11am.

Theatre about a Good Fela The incredible life and times of legendary Nigerian musician Fela Kuti is the subject of the next production from Britain’s National Theatre to screen at Dendy Byron Bay Cinemas.  FELA! is a unique hybrid of dance, theatre and music, exploring the extravagant, decadent and rebellious world of Fela Anikulapo-Kuti, a civil rights campaigner. FELA! screens at the Dendy at 1pm on Saturday and Sunday. Tickets $$23–$25 on sale now.

Floods on Stage In the Middle Ages or thereabouts there appeared these kooky little dramas called Miracle Plays – basically streettheatre scripts for musical theatre. Ian Knowles, director of Amatori choir, has got hold of Noyes Fludde, which is set around Noah and the Ark … I mean flooding is pretty topical and he’s looking for a bunch of kids aged six–13. Contact Ian Knowles on 6684 4164.

Seeing Through Just after the floods, it seems cosmically perfect to launch an exhibition of watercolours! Rose McKinley’s works celebrate both the wild and the domestic roles of Nature. Cate Cormack’s daring investigations of nature on Yupo paper offers perspectives that appear to be both from a distance or aerial view and extremely close up, even microscopic. Judson Chatfield’s precious soapstone and glass sculpture offers up  another dimension, as you are able to see the surface and also into and through the work. Opening night of ‘Transparencies’ on Friday from 6pm at Still @ the Centre Gallery, 3 Centennial Circuit, Byron Bay.

reviews

Black Swan Darren Oronofsky came to town a couple of years back with Mickey Rourke as ‘The Wrestler’. This time around he takes us into the more refined world of classical ballet, but a single-minded focus on his central character and on the confined nature of that character's environment are notable similarities. Stylistically, he again favours the extended use of a hand-held camera, with a predilection for following his subject, Nina (Natalie

Portman), from behind as she moves about the increasingly claustrophobic locations of the theatre where she is rehearsing the biggest role of her career, and the apartment she shares with her obsessive mother (Barbara Hershey). As a technique aimed at getting you inside a person’s head-space it is immediately successful. Nina, ambitious but reserved, has been chosen by the company’s director, Thomas (Vincent Cassel), to be the lead in a new production of Swan Lake. For those of us unfamiliar with the story, an

abridged, unforced synopsis is spoken by Thomas as he selects who will be his principal dancers and the film then broadly follows its theme. The fragile, naïve virgin Nina has no trouble in mastering the part of white swan, but her sinister black twin seems to be beyond her grasp. Thomas, who will do whatever it takes to have his vision presented on stage, pushes Nina into unfamiliar psychic realms that threaten her participation on opening night. Surrounded by mirrors that distort reality, paranoid about the scheming of her tarty understudy (Mila Kunis) and subtly manipulated by Thomas, Nina becomes more unhinged as the darkness needed to realise her character’s opposite takes hold of her – the artist consumed by her art is an old trope, but it’s rarely been bettered than here. As a young woman trapped in a nightmare from which she cannot extricate herself, Portman, who is in every scene, delivers her finest performance (as did Rourke). Willingly or otherwise, you are sucked into the abyss with her. And be warned, there are a couple of genuinely shocking moments in a movie that deviates startlingly from what you might be expecting – I had to look away when Nina visits Beth (Winona Ryder), the discarded prima ballerina, to return to her the personal effects, including a nail file, that she had furtively pinched from the ageing star’s dressing room. Without stooping to tabloid vulgarity or wafting into the ethereal, Aronofsky’s suspenseful melodrama, fired by Tchaikovsky’s music, is a perfect blend of art-house and mainstream, with juicy dobs of horror thrown into the mix. Altogether fab. ~ John Campbell

28 February 1, 2011 The Byron Shire Echo

Another Year At last, the kids are back at school and it’s safe to venture out to the pictures again. And what a gilt-edged reward awaits in Mike Leigh’s latest. It’s wonderful, and measures up to everything you would anticipate from such a fine filmmaker. Leigh is known for the long and intense preparation he does with his cast before shooting begins and such painstaking work is evident in the naturalistic performances he gleans. Jim Broadbent (who starred as William Gilbert of G&S fame in 1999’s ebullient Topsy Turvy) and Ruth Sheen are Tom and Gerri, a long and happily married baby-boomer couple. Their life has pretty much been a bed of roses – they escaped grungy Hull, studied for degrees that assured their future and did the hippy trail before settling into a semidetached suburban idyll in London, where they also lease an allotment and grow their own veggies. Others in their orbit have been less fortunate. Overweight old mate Ken (Peter Wright) is drinking and smoking himself into an early grave, unskilled brother Ronnie (David Bradley), still living in Hull, loses his wife, thirty-year-old son Joe (Oliver Maltman) has only belatedly found a partner and Mary (Lesley Manville), a work associate of Gerri’s, lonely, emotionally damaged and too fond of the grog, is on the brink of spiritual disintegration. Beginning one spring, centred on Tom and Gerri’s home, the movie follows the quotidian events of a typical, unexceptional year through the four seasons. Why then, given its mundane course, is it so engrossing? On the surface of it, the premiss is undeniably grim, but Leigh’s affection for his always earthy characters whom he knows so intimately (an unglamorous Mancunian background must surely account for it), his non-judgmental commitment to embracing their humanity and his determination to not include any of them merely as minor players make for a much warmer whole than the more depressing aspects of its parts might suggest. Not a false note is struck by

<echowebsection=Entertainment>

anybody, but Manville in particular is outstanding – having harboured unrealistic designs on young Joe for a long time, the scene in which

Mary arrives for lunch to find him there with his new girlfriend is one of pitiable, crushing defeat for her. Stripping her character bare of cliché and sham intensity, Manville’s is a performance of the highest order. As a study of the human condition, compare this movie with the glib vanity piece that was Sofia Coppela’s recent ‘Somewhere’, and you’ll discover the difference between honest and bogus. ~ John Campbell

Mungo’s Crossword first published in The Week.

energy is expansive, but respect communication protocols: ask people what they think before telling them what you know.  Watch your enthusiasm doesn’t override those new luminaries entering your orbit, because right now teamwork’s your pathway to the stars. F TAURUS: This genial, gregarious week could be a soul nourisher for Taurans – when it’s not being impatient and argumentive. Ethical questions arise which insist on the larger rather than the personal, what’s in it for me picture, but late week new moon kicks in with the requisite perspective. G G EMINI: The middle path of moderation may not appeal this week when the urge to swap hot goss is tempting, but remember that backbiting only aggravates already inflamed situations. Late week new moon in your truth zone brings radically different information from what you were operating on. H CANCER: According to Cancerian novelist Tom Robbins, there’s no such thing as a weird human being – just some people requiring more understanding than others. Adopting this compassionate attitude could win over rivals and adversaries, so be adventurous and make conflict-tocollaboration this week’s passion statement. I LEO: Mars in your partnership sector needs all your big cat charisma, because a take it or leave it stance could have others reaching for their running shoes. And with Saturn testing the validity of big visions, plans expanded too rapidly can collapse just as suddenly. J V IRGO: Mars in your health sector wants new diet and exercise regimes, but don’t be too hard on yourself – casual pleasures can be uplifting. And yes, others might be a bit slapdash and not quite up to your exacting standards, but they’re doing their best.

Junior champ Bobby Cheng

In Mooroolbark, Victoria, last week, Bobby Cheng equalled a 46-year-old record by winning a second consecutive Australian Junior (U/18) Championship. In winning his second title Cheng matched the record set by Bill Kerr in 1964/5, but at only 13 years of age Cheng has plenty of opportunities to take a third. Melbourne’s Cheng, who was the World U/12 Champion in 2009, was chased all the way by Canberra’s Yi Yuan but with powerful controlled play always looked like a winner in one of the

percolates with delightful adventures, perky ideas, promising possibilities and interesting new information bytes. By end of week new moon you’ll be primed for a breakthrough – an inspirational solution to the knotty problem that’s been bothering you. L SCORPIO: The forces of disorder are giving us all a makeover. This week you’re quite the dynamo, but others could take a strong and forceful stand too. As major rearrangements take place, aim for outcomes where everyone gets at least some of what they want. M  SAGITTARIUS: This week’s divinely designed for fun, frolics and the frisky exchange of ideas. Just as well you’re in active, energised mode because existence looks set to rip the blinkers off a blind spot and drop a bombshell of brutal truth concerning what needs adjusting in your world. N CAPRICORN: Your mentor planet Saturn continues offering awareness of relationship imbalances that need correcting. Watch where your thinking might be getting a tad rigid because this week’s also about money, honey, and that’s where you need to be at your best, smartest and most flexible. O AQUARIUS: Tactical planning, a clever operating strategy and teamwork are the things that will make this week’s dream work. Plus some hefty structural support from late week’s annual Aquarius new moon, your astrological window of opportunity for getting this year’s wish list out to destiny’s engineers. P P ISCES: Lessonmeister Saturn is advising that increased efficiency and personal accountability in day-to-day dealings will bring more of the results you’re looking for. Staying locked in old stories is likely to elicit raised eyebrows, scant sympathy and the advice to move on. I couldn’t agree more.

SNIPPETS MULTICULTURAL DAY Macadamia Castle in Knockrow hosted an Australian Day party with a difference. Owner Tony Gilding decided he was sick of white people proclaiming the Day for themselves and that the symbols of the flag should be claimed by all of us. To that end he invited Indigenous children from the Aboriginal Child and Family Network, as well as about 20 recent Congolese arrivals from Africa who are now resident in the area, to represent the most recent Australians. According to Tony it was a wonderful multicultural celebration, with over 400 people turning up throughout the day. A BBQ lunch was held alongside traditional games like spoon races, a didgeridoo demonstration, panning for gold and treasure hunts.

LANDSHARING There is now a â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;match-makingâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; service for gardeners on the Northern Rivers. One of the Northern Rivers Food Links Sustainable Agricultural Projects, Landshare Australia provides a technology-based platform for matching landholders and growers by offering a social networking service that introduces people with spare land to others wanting to grow vegetables but have nowhere to do so. Public concern for food miles, mounting food prices and a desire to get back to old-fashioned flavour have all generated a dramatic rise in people wanting to grow their own fruit and vegetables. Co-founder of the new service is gardening guru and ABC commentator Phil Dudman. The concept is based on the hugely successful Landshare UK website launched last year by celebrity chef and ethical food warrior Hugh Fearnley-Whittingsall of River Cottage. It is looking for supporters to help spread the word and sponsors to help make it all happen. To find out more visit www.landshareaustralia.com.au.

In 2010 alone she represented at the CHS Open Girls State Football Championships, the National Junior Championships, CSH State Athletics, the Queensland State Youth League, the National Football League, the Down Under Games, High School State Football, zone swimming and the list goes on. Deeanna was very pleased to be chosen for this award and she and her family attended the ceremony in Byron Bay on Australia Day. ‘This year has

been one of the greatest so far,’ she said after she was presented with her medal. ‘Receiving this award has really topped it off for me.’ Deeanna says the road to this honour was paved with many people whose help she is grateful for. ‘There are so many people I have to thank, but really it’s mum and dad because let’s face it, if they had not put up everything, I would never have gotten as far as I have.’ Deeanna says her coaching mentors Poly Fung in athletics, Graham Riches from the Mullum Soccer Club and Joel who is the Bangalow Prems coach have all been a fantastic help to her. ‘Even my Uncle Steve helps out by taking me to the early morning gym sessions. In the end I just really have to be thankful that I am surrounded by such a loving family and a great community.’

Once armed with the facts Mr Ryan recommends home owners should challenge their existing loan provider to ask them what they are prepared to do to keep their business. ‘Let them know you are prepared to refinance and see if they are prepared to match it. ‘You may actually get an immediate 0.20 per cent or more reduction on the spot without even having to make the move.’ However if your lender is not prepared to compromise then consumers should be open minded enough to consider shopping around as the next option. There are many well regulated non-banks, credit unions and building societies that offer lower interest rates then the banks and are receptive to tailoring financial packages that meet consumers needs. On the role of financial institutions Mr Ryan said that in a fast-evolving marketplace it is imperative that lenders step

up to the plate and acknowledge their duty in better educating and preparing their customers. Mr Ryan advises that consumers wanting to make the move need also need to reassure their prospective home loan managers by taking at least their last six months of loan statements proving that they are a quality borrower. Physically providing the home loan provider with competitive quotes and interest rates will let them know that you are a bona fide and savvy prospect wanting the best deal possible. ‘While the banks are probably banking on most people not walking, if you can be bothered to do some research then you will find a better deal, resulting in peace of mind and potentially thousands of dollars saved,’ said Mr Ryan.
