Housing affordability crisis deepens for locals

Little fish fills big boots

Dire shortage of secure and affordable accommodation for workers Ray Moynihan

New figures show the cost of Byron rents jumping almost 100 per cent in a decade, making the town increasingly unaffordable for its own part-time and casual workforce. Average rent for a one-bedroom apartment was $125 in 2002, but is $230 today, while a three-bedroom rental has blown out from $250 to $420 a week. Those exorbitant rents now match or even exceed Sydney’s, yet incomes here are on average only one half to two-thirds of what people earn in the cities. The latest available census data show that for tenants in the Byron area, 75 per cent of households on low and moderate incomes are in ‘housing stress’, which is defined as spending at least one-third of your income on housing costs. This year’s census figures are likely to paint an even bleaker picture. While the north coast’s housing crisis is not a new problem, experts

argue that the ‘grossly excessive’ housing costs are increasingly affecting the ability of working people to find stable and affordable homes. Byron pet store worker and mother Joan Humphries is one of the many people being pushed to the edge by the double whammy of insecure and unaffordable housing. For the second time in just two months, Joan is being forced to leave what she thought was long-term rental accommodation in Ocean Shores, after one owner decided to move back in, and then a second owner announced he was selling the house that Joan’s family had only just moved into. On top of outstanding medical bills, credit card debts, and the myriad expenses of raising children, the costs of moving again and the prospect of even higher rents are causing a sense of desperation. ‘We’re just going downhill,’ Joan told The Echo this week. ‘Stress-wise, I don’t know how much more I can cope with.’ Long-time Byron resident and single dad Mychal Kordas is one of those

Affordable housing forum March 16 Over the next few months The Echo will be hosting a series of forums on issues affecting Byron Shire. The first of these forums is on affordable housing and will be on March 16 at the Byron Bay Community Centre. Keynote speaker is Professor Julian Disney, chair of the National Affordable Housing Summit, and will be chaired by The Echo’s Ray Moynihan, author and former 7.30 Report journalist. The second forum planned will examine youth issues, and will be on April 20, chaired by Mandy Nolan.

whose family has been forced out of the area by soaring rents. Speaking to The Echo from his new home in Hervey Bay in Queensland, Mychal said he’d felt an attitude from some in Byron that ‘if you can’t afford to live here, just go.’ Chair of the National Affordable Housing Summit, Professor Julian Disney, says the shortage of affordable housing is ‘deep and significant problem’ in Australia. He told The Echo that Byron has become like a small number of other towns, including Noosa and highgrowth mining centres, where workers can’t afford to live where they work. A former head of the Australian Council of Social Services and one of the nation’s most respected voices on the affordability crisis, Professor Disney says there is much that local councils can do, from making land available to creating new partnerships which can take advantage of federal subsidies to build more affordable housing. More on the affordability crisis and what can be done on page 14

Pool, she shaved 0.22 off Petria’s record finishing the 50 metres in 31.83. ‘I asked the time keeper as soon as I had finished what my time was,’ said Nicole who is just 11. ‘When they said 31.83 I knew I had beaten the record and was so excited. Petria Thomas’s mum was at the pool and she came over to congratulate me. She was really nice.’ Nicole doesn’t envisage her future to be a reflection of Petria’s career. ‘I really like swimming but just for the sport of it, for health and fitness, and for the friends that I have made.’

Australia’s history of competition swimming has left an entire wardrobe of very big shoes to fill and one little fish has slipped very comfortably into those of Petria Thomas, breaking a 25-year old record held by Mullumbimby’s Olympic star. Nicole Dorfer, who is in year six at Ocean Shores Public School, had her sights set on the record.

There’s a new development application (DA) for a bistro/tavern drive-through at Sunrise Beach, Byron Bay. The proposal is being put forward by the North Beach owners (formally the Becton site), under a different title. North Beach is associated with mining magnate Brian Flannery, as featured in The Echo on November 30 2010. Under the proposal, the total floor area of the building will be 960m2 – including decks – and would cover 12.6 per cent of the 7,749m2 site near the railway tracks and the North Beach estate. A bistro, bar, drive-through bottle shop, children’s playground, landscaped gardens and parking for 61 cars and 30 bicycles are all planned. Designed by award-winning company, Troppo Architects

of Byron Bay, the site’s great advantage is its size, says manager Dan Connolly. ‘At nearly two acres we can retain large areas of existing coastal vegetation. The key attraction is most definitely the landscaped play area – the idea was to create informal play opportunities for all ages, so the overall outlook from the bistro was that of an attractive landscape design rather than a playground.’ The company’s PR says Merran Morrison and Rebecca Townsend, directors of ARTSCAPE: The Nature of Sculpture, have been engaged to work with the project to provide the link to regional artists and to produce integrated sitespecific artworks ‘At nearly two acres we can retain large areas of existing coastal vegetation,’ Rebecca Townsend said. ‘Our clients, including The Sun Bistro, are committed to

engaging artists for high- quality design outcomes.’ The bistro and drivethrough bottle shop’s proposed hours will be 10am to 10pm, with extended hours of 10am until midnight on Friday and Saturday nights. There are no applications for gambling, however there may be TAB betting facilities, the company’s PR spokesperson told The Echo. Live music will only be acoustic and won’t be after 6pm. A previous similar DA for this site was approved by Byron Shire Council in 2008, says the PR company.

Local concerns Despite the carefully presented PR it has already caused concern for at least one resident. ‘Within vomiting distance’ is what Sunrise resident Ian Blair Hamilton says of the proposed Sunrise Tavern.

‘I received a very friendly circular in my mail this week from the Sun Bistro Team, informing me of the proposal. ‘I find it offensive that the PR spin tries to make it out as “family friendly”. It got me wondering which part of the bistro would be family friendly? The bar where men go to get away from their wives and kids and then come home late, drunk and belligerent?’ Mr Hamilton questions the need for a new pub considering the already high rates of alcohol- related violence in the town. ‘Is it even possible to conjoin the words “family friendly” with “tavern/bistro”? Isn’t that an enthymeme? ‘No wonder the “Sun Bistro Team” didn’t sign their names to the circular.’ For more on the new propsal visit its website at www. thesunbistro.com.

Music Society turns 20 Maca industry oils

up the food media Ray Moynihan

A group of fifteen influential Australian food writers were treated to weekend at Byron at Byron this week, courtesy of the macadamia industry. During the visit, a handchosen journalistic crop ate Bangalow pork and macadamia nut pesto at Satiate and indulged in exquisite degustation at another top dining spot, in between visits to nut plantations and processing plants. Being a food writer does appear to come with some perks – a head and neck massage with macadamia nut-infused oils was also on offer as part of the Australian Macadamia Society’s preparation for an upcoming marketing campaign. According to the industry’s publicity, Australia leads the world in its ‘commitment to clean, green production’ of the nuts – a claim contested by the National Toxics Network’s Jo Immig. Byron Music Society’s David Ashton, in St Martin’s Church ‘The nuts might be clean, but Mullumbimby, where the Dohnanyi String Trio concert will be the industry is not green’, she held on Sunday February 27.

Carbendazim, for example, is associated with male infertility and birth defects in laboratory animals, while Paraquat is suspected of damaging the hormone system, and is currently under a cloud because of links with Parkinson’s disease. Chief executive of the Australian Macadamia Society Jolyon Burnett says the industry’s use of chemicals is ‘minor compared to most food crops’, and the food writers were treated to try and improve their knowledge of macadamia nuts, and increase the number of recipes featuring them. Meanwhile the US-based Hancock’s, which runs corporate plantations near Dunoon, has written to locals promising to ‘ensure that all neighbours are informed of upcoming crop protection applications.’ Silas Long, organiser of a December meeting on a controversial chopper spraying, is hopeful neighbours in future will be told exactly what will be sprayed and when.

THE ILLUSION OF I AND OTHER

Exchanging schools and expanding minds Story & photo Eve Jeffery

Local schoolgirls Alanna Noone and Tulla Carson spent much of their spring and summer in winter as exchange students in the northern hemisphere, Alanna in Italy and Tulla in Spain. Both girls travelled abroad for five months as part of the World Education Program Australia (WEP) which is an independent, not-for-profit Australian student exchange organisation. Every year the WEP program sees students around the world exchange their schools, cultures, families and often languages during their various programs to over 20 countries worldwide. Alanna goes to Byron Bay High School and Tulla goes to Mullumbimby High. Both are 16 and chose a European Christmas. Alanna lived not far from Venice and Tulla lived in Madrid. The girls had four host siblings and attended the local high school in their area.

Alanna and Tulla are looking forward to getting back to school which they both say they appreciate much more since their sojourn in Europe.

One major challenge for the girls was fitting into school and making new friends with a very palpable language barrier. The girls attended the local high school in their respective countries and each said they were given the opportunity to go into classrooms and give some practical English experience to other students. Alanna says the highlight of

her trip was a four-day visit to Lake Verbania in the country’s northwest. Tulla says the entire adventure was amazing. ‘Overall it was a really rich experience,’ says Tulla. ‘I became really close with some friends I made. It was not always easy but it was a great challenge.’ Alanna says one of the major changes for her was going from

a one-child household to having four younger siblings. She didn’t know having brothers and sisters would be so noisy. Alanna, whose host family also took her on a skiing trip to the Dolomites, says she had a wonderful time but missed some of the things we take for granted in the Byron Shire, especially the food. ‘I missed the comforts of home’, says Alanna. ‘Things like muesli and soy milk.’ Both girls said they had to explain to their hosts what a curry was. ‘I had a great time but I appreciate my life here so much more, I couldn’t wait to get back to school,’ says Alanna, a sentiment echoed by Tulla who met few fluent English speakers, but both girls said the language barrier was fairly easily overcome and they learned much of the foreign lingo during their stay and the exchange was well worth it. For more information about the World Education Program visit their website at wep.org.au.

schools in the region. We have one of the greatest concentration of schools per population,’ says organiser Brian Keats. The celebration will continue in the following months with open lectures about philosophy, science, astronomy, biodynamic agriculture and education. Admission is free.

Sculptures by international master on exhibit Victoria Cosford

Christopher Dean described it as cutting butter. He was referring to the imported Italian Carrara marble that was to be his artwork, which is part of a six-day course at Byron YAC under the tutelage of visiting Syrian sculptor Usama Al Nassar. A special agreement between Byron YAC and the international sculptor made possible the series of four workshops, held over the space of a month. Christopher was one of many who travelled from Brisbane and Sydney, as well as locally, to participate in the workshops, which were conducted in both marble and wood. As Al Nassar prepares to return to Carrara in Italy, he has

organised a special exhibition, to be held on Wednesday February 23. He told The Echo that it will

principally be a showcase of his work, sculptures in bronze and wood, but there would also be examples of the pieces created

by his students. He said that most of them, a mixture of amateurs and professionals, had made beautiful pieces. ‘The process is slow,’ he said. ‘Those doing it for the first time did not know what to expect – and at the end, at the birth of their sculpture, they were very moved.’ ‘It’s absolutely wonderful,’ Christopher Dean told The Echo. ‘To me it’s a once-in-alifetime opportunity. ‘To have a Syrian master craftsman from Italy, working with the finest statuary marble in the world here in Byron Bay, it’s like a dream.’ The exhibition will be held at the Byron YAC, 1 Gilmore Crescent Byron Bay, on Wednesday February 23 and starts at 6.30pm.

Byron Community Centre is hosting its first Volunteer Expo on Thursday February 24. It’s designed to showcase organisations in the Shire that rely on volunteers, and will not only provide an opportunity for information and recruitment, but also to celebrate the work that current volunteers do for the community. Volunteer co-ordinator Cherie Bromley told The Echo that from 11am to 4pm people are free to drop in to the Centre to

find out how they can volunteer in the community. ‘Every organisation utilising volunteers in the Shire has been invited to come and show their wares,’ she said. ‘There are retirees, people with higher education, young people with an excess of lovely energy, career-path people.’ School-leavers are particularly encouraged to explore the many different organisations that could be ideal places to gain work experience.

Toastmaster off to represent Lennox Victoria Cosford

A Lennox Head woman is talking her way to the top. Alison Watson will compete in a speaking contest at Kingscliff on March 6, representing the Lennox Lightning Toastmasters Club, against contestants as far afield as the Gold Coast and Grafton. Toastmasters is a not-forprofit training organisation that focuses on communication and leadership development, with over 800 clubs throughout

www.echo.net.au

Australia, New Zealand and Papua New Guinea. It aims to help its members improve their confidence when speaking socially, at work and in public. Alison told The Echo she had been a member of her particular club since it started five years ago. ‘I just wish I’d discovered it in my 20s!’ She said that it had absolutely improved her self-confidence. ‘I think of all those things you have to go through like job interviews… I’m never fright-

ened anywhere anymore!’ Alison will be one of six contestants at Kingscliff, and if she wins this round she will head to Inverell for the District Championships, encompassing the Northern Territory, Queensland and Northern NSW. To learn more about Toastmasters, an open house for the Lennox Lightning Club is planned for Tuesday March 1, at the Anglican Church on the corner of Byron and Fern Streets, Lennox Head, starting at 7pm.

I was born in Sydney and I grew up in Berowra, attending first Berowra Public School then Asquith Boys High. I ended up at Macquarie University studying economics. Coincidentally during that period I was called up to go to Vietnam but because I was studying I didn’t have to go. Then by the time I finished Gough Whitlam was in power and he abolished conscription. I’m fundamentally a pacifist so it was a good thing I didn’t have to go to Vietnam. What happened next?

I got a job at the ANU and moved to Canberra. I was admin assistant to Sir Ernest Titterton, Australia’s pre-eminent nuclear physicist at the Research School of Physical Sciences (he supervised the atomic tests at Woomera). I got married and was transferred laterally to the public service as advisor to Professor Peter Carmel of the Carmel Report. Then I was appointmented as Chief of Staff to the Federal Minister of Education Sir John Carrick. I had extra degrees by now so was appointed to the position of advisor with the Department of Prime Minister and Cabinet. I was a speechwriter for the PM Malcolm Fraser. Then there came a change of government so I was writing speeches for Bob Hawke. I’m actually the last living person to have attended the last cabinet meeting of Fraser

and the first of Hawke. At that point I was made the Head of Cabinet Secretary within the PM’s department so I spent my life attending Cabinet meetings. It was a surreal experience because you were dealing with things before they had happened. I was only in my early 30s, one of the youngest people ever to be promoted to senior executive service in the Department. But I’d be sitting in the Cabinet room watching hundreds of millions of dollars being traded across the table and wondering what was happening in the real world – so several years later I participated in a program called Interchange, which brought me up here to work with the Byron Council. Had you been here before?

I’d been briefly to Byron, and had been captivated by the environment, the people, the way of life. It was only an 18-month stint and I came back to Canberra. And then my parents died suddenly, within six months of each other, and I had to reassess my life. I was

an only child – but while I had had a good life in Canberra I didn’t want to be there for the next 30 years. So I decided to leave government and move up here. That was in about 1985. What was your first job in Byron Bay?

I ran Cape Gallery in Lawson Street in Byron Bay for eight years – I was also involved in the Arts Factory. Then about ten years ago I sold the business, woke up one day and thought I can’t bear to live in Byron any more – sick of the crowds and the traffic – so I came to Bangalow where I had first lived when I came up here, and bought a cheap little house. I was about 50 at the time and effectively retired. I became a full-time worker in the community. What do you love most about Bangalow?

This is a very switched-on community. Some amazingly talented people have moved here over the past 20 years with heaps of experience in business and with a great willingness to

share that with the community. What I love about Bangalow is the sense of community – the fact they built that purposebuilt house for Richard Allen; the recent fire where we raised money to support the employees who had lost their jobs. And we bounce back from things. That whole community thing, it’s very inclusive and everyone is welcome. Whereas in Byron Bay, it’s no coincidence Byron doesn’t have any community events because it’s lost its sense of community. What do you feel is one of your proudest moments?

The award I treasure the most is the 2009 Volunteer of the Year. I’m very proud of that. Volunteers don’t get paid for what they do. It doesn’t mean they’re worthless, it means they’re priceless. Everyone should do something each week that makes a contribution to the community. But it’s not about awards, it’s about deeds and doing things and not why you do it. Photo Jeff Dawson

Comment

Libs make bigotry a political weapon Volume 25 #37

February 22, 2011

Sir Humphrey strikes back This Thursdayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Council meeting should be interesting. Item 11.3 on the agenda is a report from Graeme Faulkner, the general manager, headed â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Councilâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s relationship with bureaucracies and governmentâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;. In the report we learn that there has been â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;media commentaryâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; (The Echo is named) â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;prompted by a published article written by a local elected officialâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; (Cr Tom Tabart is not named). The GM thinks that this commentary â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;presents a limited view of the subjectâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; and wants to provide his own so that â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;all elected officials can participate in the subsequent open discussion.â&#x20AC;&#x2122; Mr Faulknerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s main point is that, since the victory over Club Med, Byron Shire Council has been seen as an activist council and that, contrary to the perception that bureaucracy now rules, the â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;tradition of â&#x20AC;&#x153;independent mindednessâ&#x20AC;? has in managementâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s view been continued with the elected body deciding on a number of occasions in the last few years to act contrary to the wishes of various state government departments on a range of issues.â&#x20AC;&#x2122; He lists some examples of the elected body defying the state government and several more of councillors voting contrary to staff recommendations to show that they are fully in control of the local government agenda. I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t expect the meeting to be as exciting as you might think: unlike other government chambers local government has limited privilege, and the Code of Conduct hangs balefully over all participants, ready to be invoked at the drop of a comment. I recently attended a preliminary investigation into one such Code of Conduct complaint. During the course of a Council meeting Cr Tom Tabart had made a comment critical of the Compliance Department and, after some argument, agreed to withdraw it. Notwithstanding this withdrawal, which in most political arenas would be the end of the matter, the general manager had made a complaint, and a solicitor, appointed to decide the matter, was asking Tom questions. I do not know what decision the solicitor will hand down about the delinquency or otherwise of Tom Tabart, although Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m sure it will be fairly within the guidelines given to him. What I do know is that the Code of Conduct has been misused as a political weapon in many other councils (Tweed Shire springs to mind) and that, however well-intentioned its origins, it is, in practical terms, one more obstacle to free speech. It could be argued that the GM has shown some cojones by tackling the media criticism full on, but in fact an open Council meeting is not likely to resolve anything. Real cojones would be shown by actually tackling deficiencies in the organisation. However, even if Graeme could summon the will, as soon as he lifts a finger, a bevy of lawyers, union reps and stress-certificate doctors will defensively surround anyone it points to. By the way, Club Med as an example of Byron Shire Council activism is an historical howler. A majority of councillors, led by Cr Ross Tucker, were in favour of the mammoth resort, and it took court action by the community against Council to stop the wretched thing. David Lovejoy, Publisher

S

o, shrill the triumphalists of the conservative press, multiculturalism is dead. It has proved to be a complete disaster. We know this because we have it from no lesser authorities than the prime ministers of both Great Britain and Germany. David Cameron claims that multiculturalism promotes division rather than unity; Angela Merkel asserts that it has utterly failed. What else is there to say? Well, just one thing, and Malcolm Fraser has dared to say it: they donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t know what they are talking about, because neither of their countries has ever had a policy of multiculturalism. What they have had is immigration programs â&#x20AC;&#x201C; or perhaps the lack of them â&#x20AC;&#x201C; which have collapsed in a heap of unintended consequences and social unrest, because no one ever tried to make them balanced and inclusive. In Germanyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s case, the trouble was the so-called guest worker scheme: cheap labour was imported from countries such as Turkey. No attempt was made to integrate the newcomers, who were never meant to stay for long anyway; but the economy could not do without them, and they formed ghettoes which became the breeding ground for resentment and discontent. In England the problem arose from the end of the empire; Harold MacMillanâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s winds of change drove many thousands to seek refuge in what they had been told was their home country. In particular Asians fled from the newly independent countries in Africa, and the floods arrived before the doors could be closed. Now, of course, not even Australians are welcome; but those who made it cannot be deported. Once again, it was totally unplanned and there was

no policy to deal with it. So just what is multiculturalism? The Tory pundits shake their beetled brows and say it is all too difficult, too complex to explain. But in fact itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s so simple you can set it to music: We are one, but we are many, And from all the lands of earth we come; We share a dream and sing with one voice: You are, I am, we are Australian.

tralians, of course, were even more marginalised but being less noticeable could have their problems ignored for longer. But although these issues were important, they did not impede the great march forward. America was the flag bearer, and after the second world war Australia followed suit. Until then, migration had been predominantly British with a trickle of other mainly northern Europeans. The post-war

As Immigration Minister Chris Bowen pointed out last week, there is a peculiar genius in the Australian version of multiculturalism and its ties to nation building and citizenship.

by Mungo MacCallum Or, as the Americans put it even more concisely in the motto on their great seal: E Pluribus Unum â&#x20AC;&#x201C; out of many, one. The two definitions are especially pertinent because they come from the only two countries ever to have consciously embarked on a policy of multiculturalism and the two which most vigorously defend its outcome. Both were the result of war. After the first world war the United States opened its doors to the homeless and tempesttossed of Europe and the new world became the great melting pot. The immigrants did not shed their identities â&#x20AC;&#x201C; rather they gloried in them. Generations later many still describe themselves as Polish Americans or Italian Americans, but they are all, unarguably, Americans. The noble experiment had its setbacks: a complicating factor was the presence of a large number of African Americans, involuntary immigrants who were for a long time denied their rightful place. Indigenous Aus-

reconstruction scheme broadened the intake to include large numbers of southern Europeans, and ventured into the Middle East. It took another 20 years before the White Australia Policy was effectively killed off and multiculturalism officially enshrined as a word and as a law, but in fact the concept had been developing for far longer. As Immigration Minister Chris Bowen pointed out last week, there is a peculiar genius in the Australian version of multiculturalism and its ties to nation building and citizenship. It is more than an idea whose time has come; it is an inescapable fact of life, and one of which Australia should be hugely proud. Of course from time to time there are hiccups; the boat people have constituted one, just as the far greater influx of Mexicans has produced rumblings in the United States. But there is no reason to believe that these setbacks will be any more severe than others have been in the past â&#x20AC;&#x201C; unless,

of course, they are exploited by unscrupulous and opportunist politicians for their own cynical advantage. Which brings us, inevitably, to Scott Morrison. It is uncontested that Morrison raised in shadow cabinet the matter of fear and loathing of Muslims within some Australian communities. It is also pretty certain that he did not go on to say: â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Of course such attitudes are divisive and dangerous, born of ignorance and nurtured by bigotry, and we should join with the government and present a united front to do everything possible to educate and inform those who hold such wrong-headed views.â&#x20AC;&#x2122; Given his record, it seems likely that reports that he advised his colleagues to seek out ways to use whatever prejudice and hate they could uncover as weapons to wedge the government are at least pointing in the right direction. After all, this is One Nation policy, and One Nationâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s demented Queensland mouthpiece Ian Nelson is already claiming credit for inspiring Morrisonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s outburst against bringing asylum seekers to attend the funerals of their close relatives, and for getting Abbott to drop aid to Indonesian schools which teach policies of moderation. This latter policy will give aid and comfort to Muslim extremists and so incite greater paranoia among the vulnerable in Australia, fully in line with what Morrison is reportedly advocating. And Gary Humphreys, the Liberal senator for the ACT, presented a petition calling for an end to all Muslim immigration. It was signed by just three people, none of whom live within 300 kilometres of Humphreyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s electorate. But, he said smugly, he was just doing his duty. At least the bastards are consistent.

drugs can cause problems in society. That’s not in dispute, of course they can. The debate needs to be about how best to deal with those problems. Clearly, prohibition is not the answer. After some 50 years of these laws there are more drugs, more dangerous drugs and far more problems with drugs than ever before in our history. Prohibition is not keeping our children safe. The reason is simple. Whenever we prohibit commodities that are desired in society supply goes underground and the price goes up. Greater profits means more incentive to marketing and more widespread use. That’s what’s happened with recreational drugs to the point where, according to Kofi Annan, illicit drugs is now the second largest industry on the planet, untaxed and uncontrolled. That means the second largest income on the planet. Which means, by definition, some of the wealthiest, most powerful people are profiting from this. There’s nothing new here. Many of the wealthy elite in the US, like the Kennedys, are there thanks to drug running during alcohol prohibition and they are definitely in favour of other profitable commodities

being prohibited. The mainstream media and most politicians are owned by wealthy, powerful people. Since we only hear support for prohibition from both those quarters it’s probably safe to assume they are the same wealthy, powerful people. These drug prohibition laws are putting your children

Paraquat is a knockdown herbicide used on a variety of crops including sugarcane, bananas, macadamias, avocados, mangoes, tea tree, all grown in the Northern Rivers.

The Gillard Government will rebuild after the floods

Australians have recently witnessed some of the most destructive and devastating forces of nature. As a result, the rebuilding of flood-affected regions across Australia is going to be an immense national challenge. The Gillard Government will rebuild those affected communities and regions.

Rebuilding The cost to fix essential infrastructure such as roads, bridges, ports and railway lines is going to run into the billions of dollars. Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s why a flood levy is needed â&#x20AC;&#x201C; to support the massive rebuilding effort and get flood ravaged communities back on their feet.

Analysis

Can we fix the housing affordability crisis? Ray Moynihan explores the depth of the crisis and what can be done about it. ou can see the strength in Joan Humphriesâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; green eyes, and the anguish in her face, as she tells the story of the Shireâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s affordability crisis. Settled in a rented house in Ocean Shores for two years, Joan and partner Craig and their kids heard just before Christmas that the owners wanted to move back in. Fortuitously they found a small three-bedroom house nearby for $355 a week, and moved in January, having agreed with the new landlord it would be a long-term tenancy. Just a month later, before the family had even finished unpacking boxes, they were told their new home was being put on the market. â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;I was devastatedâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; said Joan last week, â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;I just want somewhere I can call home.â&#x20AC;&#x2122; Both casual workers on low incomes like many in the area, Joan and her partner are struggling to meet their hous-

Y

ing costs, along with lifeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s other financial demands. They were lucky to find a place for $355, because most of the threebedroom houses nearby were closer to $400, which they canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t afford. With no savings, and the obscenely high costs involved, buying the Australian dream of your own home is simply out of the question. â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re not sure what to do,â&#x20AC;&#x2122; said Joan, who works parttime at the pet store in Byronâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s industrial estate. Deeply shaken by this latest setback, this mother of three is able to see it as part of a much wider social problem. â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m sure weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re not the only ones this is happening to.â&#x20AC;&#x2122; General manager of the Byron Community Centre Paul Spooner says staff there are now giving out food vouchers to people who canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t afford to eat because their housing costs are so high, and giving bus tickets out of town to others,

because thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s no affordable housing for them here. Heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s worried the very nature of the town is changing. â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Any vibrant health community needs diversityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; says Spooner, â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;otherwise it becomes sterile.â&#x20AC;&#x2122;

Struggling Few readers will not know someone being hurt by Australiaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s horrendous housing costs, whether theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re renting in insecure circumstances or struggling to pay off a mortgage. International housing comparisons across more than 300 towns and cities rank Australia as one of the least affordable countries in the Englishspeaking world According to Demographia, the outfit that does the ranking, a few decades ago the average cost of a house was roughly three times an average annual income â&#x20AC;&#x201C; a ratio seen as â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;affordableâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;. Nowadays an Australian house is closer to ten times an annual income. Sydney has become the second most unaffordable city in the survey â&#x20AC;&#x201C; just after Hong Kong. Yet housing prices in Byron are approaching Sydneyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s, and rental costs match or exceed many Sydney suburbs,

and North Coast Community Housing, which is taking management of much of the old public housing stock in the area. â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a dire shortage of affordable housing in the Byron area,â&#x20AC;&#x2122; says general manager John McKenna, whoâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s hoping to develop new low-rent units at six sites across the region. Professor Julian Disney, a leading campaigner for more affordable housing, is encouraging Byron Council and others across the country to use the opportunities offered by the federal governmentâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s National Rental Affordability Scheme. He says there are existing models where non-for-profit organisations are already building affordable housing, and he will talk more about these at an Echo forum in Byron Bay on March 16 at the Byron Community Centre.

It may well be that Byron, in terms of housing, is one of the least affordable places on the planet. â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re all vulnerableâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; says Trish Evans, who is working with the Northern Rivers Social Development Council and finding escalating rents and housing prices are displacing more and more people, pushing Byron workers inland. Just last week the group sent an open letter on the housing â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;crisisâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; to all local politicians, wanting more action to develop affordable housing. The federal government does

in fact have a major scheme offering subsidies to develop 50,000 new affordable units or houses, to be rented at 20 per cent below market rates â&#x20AC;&#x201C; which would for example see a $400 house available for $320.

Boarding house The scheme is still in its infancy, but a boarding house development on Bangalow Road in Byron hopes to take advantage of it, ultimately offering people on lower incomes around 20 studio apartments for between $100 and $185 a week. That project is a partnership between a private developer

In the meantime though, the crisis continues for many of the regionâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s households, including those seeking help from organisations like the Byron Emergency Accommodation Project. Damian Farrell, who started with the project around 15 years ago and now runs it, says in recent years heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s seeing more working families looking for emergency housing, as escalating rents become unaffordable. For Joan â&#x20AC;&#x201C; who was supported a few years back by the emergency housing project â&#x20AC;&#x201C; itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;mental exhaustion of insecurityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; which is eating at her, as she tries to work out the cost of yet another move.

The Gillard Government will rebuild after the floods Why is a levy necessary? A lot of Australians have supported individuals during the flood crisis through generous donations. These will help fellow Australians get their flood affected homes and lives back in order. But billions of dollars are still needed to fix vital infrastructure such as roads and bridges damaged by the floods and storms. The Commonwealth will meet two-thirds of these repair costs through budget cuts. The other third will be covered through the modest and temporary levy.

Anti-whaling blogger harassed Hans Lovejoy

Nami is a Japanese national and former Byron Shire local now living outside Tokyo. She says she has received threats from a Japanese cyberbully for her views on whaling and dolphins, which are expressed on her blog. More importantly she says that culturally, Japan does not encourage the freedom of speech that Australians have. As a permanent Australian resident and university graduate, she moved back to Japan with her young family due to her mother’s Parkinson’s condition. This is her story. ‘I have been blogging for about three years,’ she says, ‘mostly about my life in Byron, family and friends. I sometimes write about my political views in a very casual manner – nothing too serious. I posted a blog article which contained my views on whaling: I am against whaling because I do not see why so many whales have to be killed for scientific purposes. Also whale meat has high mercury levels, being at the top of the food chain. These neurotoxins are toxic for the liver and kidney. ‘On my blog I also posted an article and picture of Bob Brown from a Greens party gathering in Brisbane, saying I have a lot of respect for him and that I like Greens, although I do not agree with every single policy of theirs. ‘That was two years ago. ‘Recently I received a comment from a guy who thinks what I am doing is cowardly and anti-Japanese. What I have said is based on lies, he said. ‘So I wrote back to the comment saying that, “I do not appreciate being called coward by someone I have never met and people are allowed to have different opinions. If you do not like what I write on my blog, do no read my blog. Please do not leave insulting comments on my blog as this is my personal blog. I will consider any further insulting comments made by you as harassment. So

please cease and desist. Thanks for your co-operation.” ‘Then he writes back saying “Shame on you. How could you support Bob Brown? He is a supporter of Sea Shepherd, who is a group of murders and extreme terrorists. If you are Japanese, you should strongly oppose Bob Brown.” ‘As a result I have blocked his IP address so he cannot comment on my blog anymore. That was December 1 last year. ‘Then he comes back a month later, changed his IP address and his name, saying that I am “a low class citizen and he can easily see my upbringing and where I am from… shameful, shameful… covered with lies, Japan whaling Association is whaling according to IWC standards… Australia is full of shit. Japanese young students are targeted and harassed in Australia because of the news related to whaling which is based on lies. So shame on you.” ‘Then I found out that he also has been contacting my readers who made comments on my anti-whaling article and

.sending the same sort of messages to them. I then posted a blog article to him personally asking him to stop sending me harassing comments, as well as my readers. By saying that he can easily guess where I am from is threatening to me, as I put my real name and my photos and photos of my family.

No police assistance ‘I have contacted the socalled cyber-police about this harassment on the net, then was asked to contact local police. They told me to tell him that I have been talking to the police and ask for no more contact. Which I did, replying back to his comment. ‘But he continues, writes me three page long messages telling me how I broke the law by putting his name on my blog (I still don’t know his real name as he changed his handle name four times already), and he’s threatening to sue me for causing him distress and the blog article affects his reputation. He says I have to amend the articles. Also he says he had legal rights to know which police I have been

to as he has been set up by me. ‘I have been to the police station twice only to have found out that they cannot or won’t do anything about it other than ignoring him. They have also said to me that I should not have posted controversial issues on my personal blog, and to go see a lawyer if I want to stop him harassing me. So I have ignored his messages for two days then I received a message from him again with full of hatred. I ignored these again, then he writes to me again saying because I do not reply to him or change the content of my blog – which includes whaling issues, blue-fin tuna extinction, my support for Bob Brown – he will write an open letter to the company where I work. ‘I have an appointment with a lawyer and will see what he says. As for the police resposnse, it appears OK for this person to harass me, despite the fact I have made it clear that I do not wish to hear from him again. Because I posted a controversial issue on my blog, it is my fault. ‘Apparently he can sue me or go to the police and ask them to arrest me, because I am in the wrong for protesting his threats and harassments on my blog. ‘After I have been to the police and talking to people around me in Japan, I started feeling that there is noone who supports me in this country, and was made to feel wrong for expressing my views and opinions.’ Nami’s blog – in Japanese – is at http://ameblo.jp/namstar.

Unfunded Visitor Centre helps contribute an extra $41m to regional economy Katharine Myres, manager of the Byron Visitor Centre and member of the Tourism Advisory Committee, takes up the case for VICs. Like Jim Beatson, who ably wrote in this newspaper recently, I am a member of Councilâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Tourism Advisory Committee. I also wear the hat of Manager of the Byron Visitor Centre, and itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s this position that takes up most of my time and energy. I was chosen for the TAC on the basis of my role in tourism in Byron Bay, but the positions are synergistic, and Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m finding that the TAC is at the same time informing me as manager of the visitor centre. The Byron Visitor Centre is the Level 1 accredited Visitor Information Centre (VIC) for Byron Shire. It is a not-forprofit, member-based organisation unfunded by Council, and yet fullfilling most, if not all, the functions and services set out for VICs in Byron Shire Councilâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Tourism Management Plan (TMP). The TMP takes it as a given that VICs are an essential part of tourism management. VICs are statistically proven to increase visitorsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; spending and length of stay. They contribute to the local economy, provide jobs and inform visitors, but perhaps their most important function is to support and promote local business.

Small business Tourism is an industry of small business. More so than any other, tourism is made up of one-person, family and under-ten-employees businesses. Such businesses have small budgets for advertising and marketing, and the BVC, as their local VIC, promotes through brochures and the internet over 350 local small businesses. Again, a symbiosis is at work here, as the BVC could not survive without the their membership support. In my time as manager of the BVC I have heard members say that they wouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have a business without the BVC, that the BVC is the most professional booking and referral agent in Byron Bay, and that a great proportion of referrals and bookings come via the BVC. In most places the VIC is funded by the local council through a tourism association. Not so the VICs in Byron Shire, since Byron Council retracted funding back in 1997. The BVC, the busiest in the region, and one of the busier in the state, receives no funding whatsoever. In other words the community, through rates, is not paying for the VIC, as in most shires. Or, to be accurate, only part www.echo.net.au

structure of tourism, including VICs. This includes approach road signage, education campaigns, public toilets, rest stops, information kiosks, recycling bins, interpretive signs, walkways, bicycle paths, bus stops, parks and gardens, playgrounds and â&#x20AC;Ś yes, visitor centres. So, while BU is successful in garnering marketing funds, and businesses can decide to join the campaign or not, the visitor centre, along with the bikeways and toilets, is neglected. The BVC, as I have mentioned, is the busiest in the region. At the Tourism SymResistance posium last October I learned that of the 600,000+ people Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s often been said that tour- visiting a VIC in the Northern ismâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s everyoneâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s business. The Rivers in 2009-2010, over oneletters pages of this newspaper third came into the BVC. This of the community is paying for the VIC: those who join the BVC and pay annual membership. Is this fair? If youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re a user-pays believer you might think well, yes, it is. But who is a user? A visitor who walks into the centre? A business owner who joins the centre, hoping for increased business? An event promoter? Yes, all these, and indirectly all those people who depend on those people for work and income: tradespeople, health professionals, bank employees, cleaners, retail employees, events personnel, musicians, newspapers, financiers etc.

VICs bring in dollars Research shows that of visitors to a VIC: tĂżÄ&#x192;Ä&#x2C6;TUBZFEBOFYUSBOJHIUÄ&#x17E;ĂżÄ&#x20AC;Ä NJMMJPO tÄ&#x20AC;ĂżÄ&#x2C6;UPPLBOBEEJUJPOBMBDUJWJUZUPVS Ä&#x17E;Ä&#x2021;Ä&#x192;NJMMJPO tÄ&#x192;Ä&#x201E;Ä&#x2C6;WJTJUFEBEEJUJPOBMBUUSBDUJPOT Ä&#x17E;ĂżÄ&#x2021;Ä&#x192;NJMMJPO tÄ&#x20AC;Ä&#x20AC;Ä&#x2C6;TQFOUNPSFUIBOCVEHFUFE tÄ&#x17E;Ä&#x201A;ĂżÄ NJMMJPOFYUSBTQFOEJOUP/PSUIFSO 3JWFSTMPDBMCVTJOFTTFTBTBSFTVMUPGB visit to a VIC TPVSDF$MBSFODF3JWFS5PVSJTNÄ&#x20AC;ÞÿÞ

would sometimes indicate that this is far from an accepted fact. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s quite understandable that local people want peace and quiet in their own homes and to be able to live undisturbed by the downside of tourism: parking and traffic problems, overflowing rubbish bins, unacceptable noise, loss of amenity etc. But is it tourism that is causing this, or the lack of tourism management?

Management needed Tourism management is not only destination marketing. This has been shown lately by Byron Unitedâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s successful garnering of TNSW funding for a TV campaign. According to BU press releases, this is the biggest tourism campaign for Byron Bay ever, and TNSW is funding half of it. Well done to BU for their achievement, but all these funds are for marketing and none for management. Why? Because both state and federal government will always look to councils to fund the infra-

is over 600 people a day, four times the regional average

Above average Not only is the BVC the busiest VIC in the Northern Rivers, but itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s way up there in the state statistics too: Of the almost 4.5m people who visited a Level 1 VIC in NSW last financial year, some 218,519 came into ours. Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s 4.94 per cent, or almost one in 20. The average daily visitation in the state is 203, the BVCâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s is 602; thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s three times the state average But why am I telling you all this? Well, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s clear from my experience on the TAC that funding for VICs in Byron Shire, if indeed it ever happens, is a long way off. In the meantime, it costs at least $250,000 a year just to keep the centre open. And thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s with no-frills wages. We all earn a lot less that staff in other VICs, who come under the local government award scheme. Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re open 363 days a year looking after your guests and our members. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s

tiring and expensive, and yet weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve done it without outside funding for 13 years. So, before we can even talk about how best to fund VICs and keep them open and operating for everyoneâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s benefit, you may well ask how are we doing it now? The answer is with difficulty. Those of you who are members will know that at each AGM we present our financial reports with trepidation: there are never any spare reserves, no allowance for contingencies, nothing set aside for staff development or training, nothing for marketing or promotion let alone business development. Each and every hard-earned dollar over the counter is put back into wages and essential running costs. Finally, as if you hadnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t guessed, Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m asking you to give a thought to your local VIC and the businesses and industry it supports. Are you a member? Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re here every day, seven days a week, looking after your visitors and, potentially, your business.

Like now, like wow, Labor wipeout on March 26 Greens MLC Ian Cohen takes a look at the forthcoming state elections in March and its possible consequences. s I walked out of the Parliamentary precinct this week a recognisable executive walked in with a certain spring in his step. A generation ago Nick Greiner was premier. He is now back communicating with O’Farrell and his team. The spectre of education, environment and old growth forest battles under that old regime plays on my mind. The polls are indicating an electoral wipeout for the government. On current predictions the Coalition will have 19 members after the elections in the Upper House. This is two short of an outright majority. After the President is elected they will need only three extra votes which will come from the Shooters and Fishers Party and Rev Fred Nile. Barry O’Farrell has been disingenuously claiming that the Greens will have the balance of power and the Coalition cannot claim that prize in their own right. On current polling the conservatives will comfortably have a working majority. Chillingly it reminds me of my loss to Fred Nile in 1991 when we competed for the last place in what the media labelled the battle between Heaven and Earth. Fred won but we had the independents

A

in the Lower House: Clover Moore, John Hatton, Dr Peter Macdonald and Tony Windsor. They effectively ameliorated the excesses and watchdogged the Parliament in the Lower House. On current trends no such progressive balance will be present in either house of Parliament. I have been in the NSW Parliament since 1995 and with an often discordant cross-bench we have gained significant victories in conservation and social justice issues. However the ALP has ossified over the time. We now have an intensely unpopular Treasurer in Eric Roosendaal and a Premier unable to act decisively and publically sack him. This alone may have saved the Upper House and certainly staunched their losses in the Legislative Assembly. As we have witnessed in this last Parliament or with Howard at his zenith, too much power and resulting arrogance of government is not good for democracy. The tragedy is that the coming crash and result will translate to a similar arrogance with the victors. Decades of Green gains are in grave danger. Victoria under the Coalition is reintroducing duck hunting and cattle back into the High Country. In

NSW The Shooters and Fishers Party is keen to get hunting access to National Parks and dismantle sanctuary zones in marine parks. We will see more dominance of agribusiness under the Nationals to the detriment of the smaller farmers. The Greens are seeking to maximise the Green vote by distancing themselves from the ALP. There is a strong feeling that preferencing the ALP will, at this stage, damage the primary vote for the Greens and the last four years have demonstrated that the ALP is unworthy of preferences. This is a perfectly reasonable position, particularly where Greens are challenging in ALP heartland. My concern is that the potential Greens members in the Upper House will be left dis-

empowered despite our highest ever vote. The future of the environment and progressive politics is dire. How do we convince voters, intent on punishing the ALP, to maximise the opportunity for a rigorous opposition in the Upper House? This is not targeting the Coalition’s policy but seeking a balance. I recommended that Greens not preference ALP in 2007 in part due to the fear that a big win would breed arrogance and an eventually destructive crash. My predictions were correct but it gives me no satisfaction. We have long extolled the benefit of doubling the value of one’s vote with effective preference choice. If Greens are over quota do we want our votes to extinguish? Unfortunately we need ALP positions in the Up-

per House for the Greens to be effective (the hallowed my enemy’s enemy is my friend principle) – little love lost either way. Historically, elections for the Upper House had preference deals behind the scenes with registered preference flows locking in all sorts of deals for perceived self-advantage. This reached absurd heights where the possibility of gaining a seat with the low quota of 4.5 per cent could be achieved with deals only and a catchy party name. This came to a climax in 1999 with the infamous tablecloth election. The government changed the rules with Greens support. This stopped many so-called micro parties. The situation today is arguably more fair and representative. Preferences are presented more openly to the electors. The most powerful players in this new preference game are the major parties and to a lesser extent the Greens due to the simple fact that party organisation and hence blanket polling booth coverage is the most effective way to get a preference flow recommendation into the hands of the electors. Be assured the Right will preference tightly and the Shooters, Christian Democrats and Coalition will be the big

winners. Are we a religious, gun-toting society? Watch this space after March 26. The tragedy is that many well meaning conservative voters may be victims of the vagaries of the electoral system. Rev Fred Nile if given sufficient power will seek to ban the burqa, end school ethics classes, place greater restrictions on women’s rights to choose and close down the medically supervised injection centre, to mention but a few issues. We must convince those who are voting conservatively in the main game to protect the balance in the Upper House and look at the record of hardworking Greens over the last four parliaments in NSW. Many first time Liberal voters want to give O’Farrell a chance but would be horrified to think that they would be giving Fred Nile and the Shooters and Fishers a dominant role. A significant number of our pioneering conservationists were conservatives, many of them from the North Shore in Sydney. If well meaning conservative voters, both city and country, are properly alerted I believe a hand on the shoulder of a new conservative government delivered with a Greens balance of power can still be attained.

Cyclone Yasi Cassowary Appeal Right now, we need your help to save the Cassowaries of Mission Beach in Far North Queensland. Their rainforest home has been devastated by Cyclone Yasi and they face starvation unless we act now. Rainforest Rescue is helping to provide food for the Cassowaries and is restoring their rainforest habitat. Cyclone Yasi has stripped the rainforest trees bare. Once the Cassowaries have eaten the fallen rainforest fruit, they will be forced to leave the forest in search of food. This could be disastrous for the already dwindling population. In the aftermath of Cyclone Larry in 2006, a large number of Cassowaries were hit by vehicles or attacked by dogs once they left the forest. One-third of the Cassowary population died of starvation.

Please help to save this magnificent species. They are already threatened with extinction and it is estimated that only 1,000 remain in the wild. Please donate now and help fund the food for these iconic rainforest birds. The food will be placed at remote feeding stations to ensure that the Cassowaries do not wander into town and get hit by cars. We are also planting trees to provide essential Cassowary habitat and purchasing rainforest properties to ensure Cassowary habitat is protected.

Help feed the Cassowaries of Mission Beach in the aftermath of Cyclone Yasi. $25 will provide Cassowary food for one day and ensure the survival of this endangered species. Rainforest Rescue is a local not-for-profit organisation committed to protecting rainforests forever. We create opportunities for individuals and businesses to support successful projects to protect and restore our rainforests. 20 February 22, 2011 The Byron Shire Echo

Byron Bay Film Festival

www.bbff.com.au

Telegram Man brings the terrible news in a time of war The Saturday afternoon session on March 5th is one of those festival moments that BBFF just know will be a genuine crowd pleaser. Not only are there terrific films on offer, but BBFF has also made sure that a star and the director of one of these great films will be on hand! Definitely one of those times to rub shoulders with icons from the Australian film industry… First up of these dramatically engaging films is the Australian short The Telegram Man. Back we go in time to the year 1942. War is raging in Europe and the Pacific, but its destructive tentacles spread even further than this. During the long years of World War II, Australia’s small farming communities paid a terrible price. In the rural towns of New South Wales, one family each week discovered that their son or husband or brother or father would not be coming home. In the throes of such

grief, one seldom stopped to consider the impact of this on the man who had to deliver this news. The Telegram Man takes us into the world of Bill Williams, the man whose job it is to deliver the worst kind of news. This role is made all the more effective as veteran actor Jack Thompson embodies the full weight of Bill’s job. Gary Sweet adds his strong presence to the screen as John Lewis, the father of a son who is off at war. With

Sigrid Thornton as his wife, Barbara, this dynamic acting trio contribute to a theme that already has considerable impact. The Telegram Man is a story that compels us to question our values, our fears and our compassion. It focuses on a time when we grew up as a nation; a time when we took responsibility and a time when we learnt the most painful lessons of loss whilst discovering and defining who

your memory. Having Jack Thompson and Director/Producer James Khehtie (short film Breathless, and a contributor to Mao’s Last Dancer and Little Fish) on hand to provide insights to the making of this film guarantee an engaging afternoon.

Although we look Swedish couple Ernst and through the lens of WWII, the Cecilia. Beautifully realised by story of The Telegram Man film director and writer Johan remains as pertinent and Brisinger, Among Us is a film that beautiful in its compassion, illuminates the emotional chaos sorrow and love as any that evolves when an accident moment in contemporary alters Ernst and Cecilia’s human experience. predictable and orderly lives. This poignant snapshot into Suddenly facing the possibility a time that forever changed that they may lose their only the face of Australian culture child, Ernst and Cecilia each may only be a short film, but find their own means of dealing with its host of good actors with the situation. and an excellent screenplay, it’s A crack appears in their a very big film that will linger in marriage and as this grows

into a much larger rift, viewers are left wondering if there can possibly be a resolution without some divine intervention. Among Us is a sumptuous film on any number of levels. Ernst is played by Michael Nyqvist who is instantly recognisable as a consummate actor with a long list of film credits – including all The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo trilogy. Cecilia is played by the glorious Izabella Scorupco, who also has a long line of credits to her name and has recently appeared in films such as Sunstorm and Cougar Club. She was also a very captivating Bond girl playing opposite Pierce Brosnan in Golden Eye. Among Us is a touching and suspenseful drama about the power of hope and love, and a flirt with the fantastic. Put March 5 on your calendar. Or better still, call into BCCC and pre-purchase your tickets to this exceptional afternoon of entertainment.

Revealing the 3,000-year inheritance of Indian classical music A beautiful and mesmerizing journey, Call of the Maestro, was a project undertaken to reveal how 3,000 years of classical Indian music is surviving a modern world. Historically passed down from generation to generation, this tradition is now under serious threat. The younger generations in modern India are more interested in embracing the ‘new’, and not so enamoured with dedicating themselves to learning the skills of an art form that is a highly complex mix of structure, improvisation and spiritual faith. Travelling around India to find the maestros are a student of music and a promoter of Indian classical music. Together they allow us access to the last great Indian maestros playing in the intimate surroundings of their own homes. Through the film we explore an ancient art form that is rooted in spirituality and embraces all religious faiths.

The very first sounds of this expressive music evolved from ancient chanting and the beginning of every song starts with music in prayer form. The maestros’ daily practices are based on prayer, chanting and yogic meditation and exercise. Although many maestros currently work as teachers to use imaginative ways to pass on their heritage, it is the young people upon whose shoulders the future of Indian classical music lies. For anyone who has ever appreciated the beauty and inherent spirituality of traditional classical Indian music, don’t miss this enlightening documentary. Screening Friday 11.

echnology and smart thinking provide us with a range of options to capture, collect and manage rainwater for various uses around the home, rather than let it go down the drain, literally.

Recognising these efforts is Smart Approved WaterMark, a nationwide scheme that promotes products and services that help you save water around the home and garden. More than 240 products and services proven to save water now have the label across Australia. Supporting the push for water efďŹ ciency is landscape designer and environmental scientist Josh Byrne, wellknown presenter on ABC TVâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Gardening Australia and a dedicated supporter of sustainable and waterwise gardening. â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;In my home state of Western Australia, we havenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t had the rain that the eastern states have so we must continue to be vigilant about our water use. But when it is raining â&#x20AC;&#x201C; thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the time to catch that water and save it for the dry days which will inevitably follow,â&#x20AC;&#x2122; Josh said. â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Another good reason to continue to be waterwise is the rising cost of water. Bills for our basic utilities, power and water, have risen dramatically across Australia and will continue to rise, so saving electricity and water will also help the home budget.â&#x20AC;&#x2122; Smart WaterMark has created an online calculator at www.smartwatermark.org that shows the embedded energy costs in the use of tap water. Finding water-saving products and services is easier thanks to Smart WaterMark. An Independent Technical Expert Panel assess products and services which claim to save water â&#x20AC;&#x201C; and those that prove they do are approved to use the distinctive label.

AMONG THE TIPS SMART WATERMARK SUGGESTS FOR USING YOUR TANK WISELY ARE: Use rainwater diverters â&#x20AC;&#x201C; these simply divert rainwater from downpipes into storage tanks, for watering the garden, ďŹ&#x201A;ushing toilets, use in the laundry or ďŹ lling up pools. They are easy to install for a home handyperson and are priced from $30 to $40. Use a controller â&#x20AC;&#x201C; these devices control the ďŹ&#x201A;ow of tank and mains water, ensuring that when tank water is available, it will be used as a priority before mains water. These are priced from $400 to $1000 and are easily ďŹ tted by a plumber.

â&#x20AC;&#x201C; use leaf strainers and ďŹ rst-ďŹ&#x201A;ush diverters to ensure water going into the tank is clean.

Keep debris out

Maintain a healthy tank â&#x20AC;&#x201C; keep your gutters clear from leaf debris and keep an eye out for mosquitoes. Check the tank every two or three years for sludge and sediment. Talk to council about any planning regulations and local rules about collecting and using rainwater. The National Rainwater and Greywater Household Rebate offers rebates of up to $500 for new rainwater tanks or greywater systems, while many local utilities and councils offer rebates on water saving product purchase and installation.

Smart WaterMark is run by the Water Services Association of Australia, Irrigation Australia, the Nursery and Garden Industry Australia and the Australian Water Association with funding from the Australian Governmentâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Water Smart Australia programe through the Department of the Environment, Water, Heritage and the Arts.

MARTHA WAINWRIGHT CONTINUES THE MUSICAL TRADITION OF KEEPING IT ALL IN THE FAMILY BY TAKING HER ONE-YEAROLD SON ARC ON THE ROAD FOR HER AUSTRALIAN TOUR.

Your son Arc is now around 14 months old I guess â&#x20AC;Ś walking? Being on the road with an infant is a challenge in itself, but how is it now that heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s becoming a toddler? He is not quite walking yet, so that makes it a bit easier. He slept 12 hours of the 14 hour flight over here from the US; all in all itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s been a joy. How do you manage â&#x20AC;Ś things like sleep times etc? Arc is living on an adultâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s schedule so it seems to be fine so far. How has being a mum changed the way you approach your music? How do you manage having so much less time for creative endeavours? Howâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s your time management? Well actually I have always been quite a lazy artist, in that Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m not someone who spends eight hours

a day playing and writing songs. My songs have always been about daily life and personal experiences. The baby has just enhanced all of these things greatly. Is this how you grew up with musical parents? Pretty much, although … My mother and her sister didn’t tour as much as we do. But being on the road with them in the summertimes doing folk festivals and enjoying ourselves backstage has certainly been a great role model. Do people judge you when you take a baby on the road? I don’t think so. I have no idea. All I know is that it’s best to spend as much time with my child as possible, so I take him with me. I’m sure it will become more complicated once he is school age. Do you think music and performing is the one place where gender inequality is still quite present? Fathers of babies tour all the time … Well, if I were just a backup singer, I wouldn’t be able to take the baby with me, so I’m Glad I’m the Boss. How did I Know You’re Married But I’ve Got Feelings break the market for you? I’m not sure it it really broke the ’big market’ but I’m just glad it’s kept me working. Onward and upward. I always loved how confrontational the song and album title are. I think Nina Simone sang about the Other Woman, but generally they don’t get a lot of positive air time. Was yours a personal song, or more of a narrative inspiration? Mine is a personal song, not so much about being the other woman, but more about not being able to have what I want. Did you ever get much radio play with Bloody Mother Fucking Asshole (another brilliant title)? Only in places where they play something like that. Why did you decide to make a Piaf record? What is it about her as an artist and a woman that inspires you? It was not my idea to make a Piaf record. It was the producer, Hal Willner. That being said, she was my favourite singer when I was a kid. The reckless abandon of her voice has always inspired me. What are the qualities that define a performance by Martha Wainwright? I would think a certain amount of honesty and raw emotion, perhaps not everyone’s cup of tea, but something that is sometimes lacking in music today. Are there ever things you can’t say or write in a song, or is everything up for grabs? Not quite everything. What should we expect for your shows in Byron Bay? It will be a real mixed bag: combo of Piaf, my own songs, new songs and songs of my late mother Kate McGarrigle. Martha Wainwright plays the Bangalow A&I Hall on Saturday. Tickets 13 28 49.

A VERY SORRY POLLY When you’re in public office, it’s a good idea not to insult your constitutents. A few weeks ago former Tweed Mayor Warren Polglase disgraced himself by telling an 80-year-old woman to ‘Get a job’. This was in response to the Tweed Shire woman expressing her disapproval of Polglase’s support in the council vote for a new dam in the Tweed. As he passed her she uttered ‘shame’ to which old Polly inferred she needed an urgent trip to Centrelink. ‘Get a job’ is not a very original comeback. He might as well have yelled ‘show us ya tits’ or ‘I just had sex with your mum’. They’re just tired old heckles, a way of minimising and dismissing the other person as a fool. If you are going to have a retort, make it appropriate. Why yell ’get a job’ to an 80-yearold woman who’s well past working age? Doesn’t Polly realise the retirement age is 65? Is he really expecting Mrs Jack to apply for Newstart? ‘And where have you applied for work this week Mrs Jack?’ ‘Hmm, the bowls club?’ Does Mr Polglase have any idea how difficult it is for an 80-year-old woman to re-enter the workforce? I’ve scanned the employment section of the relevant Tweed papers and not one job requested an octogenerian. As hard as Mrs Jack tries I just don’t think she’s going to get a job. Chances are, that at the age of 80, Mrs Jack has fulfilled her civic duty in the workforce. She has earned her dues. She can sleep sixteen hours a day in her slippers if she wishes. She’s a community elder. But no, Mr Polglase wants Mrs Jack back on the payroll. He wants her cleaning toilets, or holding the Stop-and-Go sign; maybe she could even get a job at the McDonald’s Drive-Thru. So when Warren nips in for a midnight McFeast she’d fill his order, take his cash and then utter ‘shame!’ and he’d say ‘Go on the pension!’ ‘Get a job’ is an insult born of our protestant work ethic. It echoes an underlying belief system that people with jobs are better people than people without jobs. People with jobs should have more rights than people without jobs. People who work in jobs and pay taxes are good. People with disabilities,

on pensions, who are unemployed, sick or infirm are bad. People with a ‘get a job’ mentality are frightened of people who live outside of the 40-hour week. They despise those citizens who sleep until 11. Who spend months in the forest chained to trees or three hours day in a yoga class. To Get a Jobbers, people without jobs are irritating. They have time to do things like, well, like research environmental problems associated with dams. They have time to read environmental impact studies. They have time to attend council meetings and sit in the public gallery. They have time to protest decisions they believe are short sighted and unfair. These stupid people need to get a job. Because when you have a job you’re compliant. You’re just too tired from spending the best part of your week doing something meaningless to earn money to pay for a life that you don’t have time to participate in. I’m a taxpayer. I’m happy that part of the money I earn goes to providing modest income supports for single mothers, the unemployed, the lazy and the drug addicted. I’d rather it went there than into new cars for Wilson Tuckey, speech lessons for Julia Gillard or a compassion implant for Tony Abbott. So how did the Polster apologise to an 80-year-old? He sent an email. ‘Sorry old bat...send. There it’s done.’ When Kevin Rudd said Sorry to Indigenous Australia he didn’t send an email. Email apologies are copouts. Apologies should be public. They should be sincere. And they should attempt to restore dignity back to the offended party. I suggest that if Warren Polglase wants to make a proper apology he needs to make a personal trip to Elizabeth Jack’s home, offer her a foot rub, clean her gutters and a make her a cup of tea. As the song says, Warren Polglase: ‘Polly put the kettle on.’ Maybe Polglase should stop worrying about people getting a job, and get on with doing his job.

Do you think the general public have broadened their acceptance of music in the last decade? (Meaning it used to be embarrassing to admit you liked country music, but now it’s kind of groovy to have a Hank Williams in your collection.) Hank Williams has always been cool! I guess everything is such a mish-mash these days we all have to pay our respects to the inventors.

Blackbirds Fly Home Byron Bay’s very own Blackbirds launch their self-titled debut independent album at the Hotel Great Northern this Saturday. Singer Renee Simone explains: ‘Following our appearances on Australia’s Got Talent, the most commonly asked question has been “So did you get a record deal?”. The answer is No, we’ve taken the independent route and it’s been an incredible journey. After the television exposure people from across the globe started to see our music though Facebook and YouTube. An international Blackbirds Community evolved. This Blackbirds Community offered to put up the money to enable us to independently record our first album. These fans are listed on the album cover and it is thanks to their support and encouragement that we can now announce the release of our debut album.’ In the meantime, whilst busking outside Fresh Café last year, Blackbirds were spotted by Eric Bibb’s tour manager. Blackbirds will be touring Australia supporting Eric Bibb and Ruthie Foster in April and May this year. Support your world-class local talent. $10 at the door; 8pm till late.

Love Police and Frankie are extremely excited to announce a February tour for one of America’s unique talents, M WARD. While past critics have compared M WARD to everyone from John Fahey to Tom Waits with his brilliant guitar playing and innate sense of melody, he is one of those rare and special talents who defy comparisons and compartmentalisation. Like a true American treasure, he cuts his own groove while music fans continue to fall under his whispered spell. Since first really getting noticed with 2003’s Transfiguration Of Vincent through to 2009’s Hold Time, M WARD has found an ever-increasing and dedicated audience

In Lismore, Cooee has singer, songwriter, puppeteer and raconteur Jimmy Willing (of the Hiccups) and Davey Bob Ramsey will perform Jimmy’s original song Singing Kate Kelly to Sleep, recorded by the Whitlams.

Breaking the Mould When was the last time you threw caution to the wind and took an outrageous risk? Maybe it was your way of breaking out of a rut, or undoing the shackles of the past. It takes courage (or sometimes just plain foolishness) to dare to be different, to do something or be someone that challenges your own idea of who you are. Perhaps the risk you took was a life-changing decision or maybe it was the mistake you had to make! Come and share your stories of bold adventure and reckless abandon, and watch as the Playback actors bring your stories to life on stage in drama, movement and music. Saturday, 7.30pm at the Drill Hall in Mullumbimby.

So I decided to deal with a wider range of human diversity and put it in a natural context, when I heard about the continuing oppression of homosexuals for behaving ’unnaturally’. In my view, the path to happiness must be swept of bullshit, and human sexuality sans bullshit is as beautiful and intrinsically uncomplicated as it is diverse. And funny!

MAKING A FILM TAKES A LOT OF BLOOD, SWEAT AND TEARS, PARTICULARLY WHEN YOU’RE A LOW-BUDGET SELF-FUNDED ENTERPRISE THAT HAS EMBARKED ON A RATHER CONFRONTATIONAL PROJECT. MATT HARTLEY IS THE DIRECTOR/PRODUCER AND ALSO AN ACTOR IN SEX AT 13, A SELF-STYLED MOCKUMENTARY FOCUSING ON A VARIETY OF COMMUNITY ATTITUDES OR STEREOTYPES AROUND SEXUALITY. HARTLEY HAS A DIG AT ISLAM’S ATTITUDE TO WOMEN WITH ‘PUT YOUR WOMAN IN A BAG’; THE CATHOLICS FOR CHILD ABUSE; NARROW-MINDED VIEWS THAT HOMOSEXUALITY IS UNNATURAL; AND DISPARITY BETWEEN PARENTAL EXPECTATIONS AROUND THEIR TEENAGERS’ SEXUAL DEVELOPMENT AND THE REALITY. THE FILM IS SET IN THE OFFICE OF A SEX THERAPIST WHERE INDIVIDUALS AND COUPLES CONFESS THEIR VARIOUS SEXUAL MALADIES OR APPREHENSIONS.

What was the impetus for you to make a film about sex and attitudes around sexuality? There were a few. Actually, many. Firstly, I’d heard about the angst experienced by families in our area and elsewhere when they ‘found out what the kids were up to’ and also the situation of young people whose pubescent experiments have them labelled and registered as ’sex offenders.’ I wanted to do something, but a film focused solely on that would be very unpleasant, almost unwatchable.

Cooee Cabaret, the NFSA’s touring theatre show based on the Sounds of Australia registry, is heading to Lismore this Friday. As part of the show’s performances in each location, the NFSA invites local performers to be part of Cooee – either to perform songs from the Sounds of Australia register (such as Friday on My Mind or Land Down Under) or to perform their own original material or significant local songs. This encourages

After a sellout success on New Year’s Eve and a bumper year of world-class comedy, The Big Gig at The Ballina RSL kicks off for 2011’s free monthly comedy with comedian Garry Who. Garry is an accomplished actor with movie roles and television credits. He starred in the hit Channel Nine sitcom All Together Now, which screened around the world. He also wrote and presented his own segments for the award-winning adult literacy series The Reading Writing Road Show for ABC television; that show also screened internationally. He was also the writer and host of the light-hearted national magazine show Just For The Record on Channel Ten. And when Ray Martin was fronting the Midday Show, Mr Who was the resident comedian for five years. He is joined by support act Paul McMahon, a former bank manager who’s found an easier way to put smiles on people’s faces. Paul is now in demand in Brisbane, Gold Coast and Canberra as a new up-and-coming comic to watch. Mandy Nolan returns as the MC on a mission. The Big Gig at the Ballina RSL on Thursday at 8pm. FREE!

What market were you envisioning watching the film? I thought that might have been a problem as switched-on open-minded people would already be on the same page as you and conservative people would turn it off or walk out. Most of us like a laugh, and many of us like to learn something, and some of us like to see bullshit busting at work. I thought comedy lovers would be the basic audience, followed by people who want to see a film as a work of art, something unique if not exactly slick – a kind of street-art cinema-goer, who finds studio comedies bland and art films low on laughs. Then again, the question you pose is the one faced by the likes of Michael Moore, or to invert that, say, a fundamentalist Christian filmmaker envisaging the Rapture. There’s something to be said, I think, for the political exercise of ‘speaking to your base’, giving heart to supporters.     I am pretty liberal, but for me the stained underpants were a bit too far, not because I defend priests, or paedophiles, but because it’s a sickening image … why did you choose to include this? The stained underpants always get a reaction. Guys tend to laugh and love it, women tend to wish it hadn’t been included. I wanted a strong, simple, profoundly visceral image that would highlight the reality, actually put you in the physical consequences of child rape. I heard years ago of fiveyear-old boys in the Philippines with uncontrolled rectal bleeding, and I lived next door to a family whose two-year-old had been raped by a friend of the family. How do you get that across? Blood. I thought Put Your Woman in a Bag was a brave and funny political comment on the two different cultural approaches towards gender and women. Were you meaning to be controversial here? Are you expecting a personal jihad? Well, my plan was to throw the three main Abrahamic crew in together. People have forgotten how contemptuous of the body and insistent of complete covering – including a headscarf – the other groups have been. In fact, US sailors going to North Africa in the 18th century were shocked to see bare arms and midriffs! Covered faces, yes, but not total covering. At the time, those men would never have seen any woman but their wives other than covered to the neck and wrist, with hair bound up. The ’back-to-the-burqua’ movement is entirely political and misogynist, but the Abrahamic faiths’ contempt for women is profound. I’m hoping for a discussion, and my point is this: the body is the body, not a work of evil, and a woman in not much is not an advertisement; it’s freedom to be in the real world. Were you prepared for the fact that there would be members of the community that may find parts of your film offensive? Yes, and they need to see it. If reality offends people, they need to have a good hard look at themselves.    How are you intending to release this – on DVD, show locally? I dream, I dream, I dream, of a wave of publicity and a general cinema release. Back on Earth, I think some film festivals and some arthouse, but unless the film is shithouse, I think there’s a young and young-at-heart audience waiting for this film. I may be delusional. Sex at 13 screens at The Dendy on Thursday at 7pm.

127 Hours If it’s so, that movies are all about faces, and that we will go anywhere with those we respond to most strongly and with whom we feel some fanciful affinity, then James Franco will doubtless have a bankable audience throughout his career. Balancing Sean Penn’s tiresome self-importance, Franco provided the heart in Milk 2008) and director Danny Boyle has struck gold by casting him as Aron Ralston, a loner and extreme sports fanatic. Telling nobody his plans, Ralston ventured into

the rocky wilds of Utah only to find himself trapped at the bottom of a canyon, his right arm pinned by a boulder. It’s a true story, but Ralston’s phenomenal will to survive is not so much the dominant theme as is what he learns about himself in the crisis. Focused on one character, and with everybody knowing the outcome, Boyle’s most pressing challenge would have been how to create and maintain narrative tension. He overcomes the problem in typically vigorous style, even if occasionally it is transparent that he is employing all of the tricks of the trade (including

a restless edit) to ensure that the drama does not stagnate. Flashbacks and hallucinations are used to telling effect and the photography is never less than spectacular (though I am yet to be won over by the split screen device or extreme camera tilt – both seem too obvious and consequently distracting). From Slumdog Millionaire (2008), Boyle has again collaborated with cinematographer Anthony Dod Mantle (who also shot his enchanting Millions) and the Indian composer AR Rahman, though in the case of the latter the results are uneven. Rahman’s muscular score is sometimes jarring and tends to shatter the overwhelming isolation and quietness that Ralston would have been experiencing – this is especially noticeable in a storm sequence when the music thunders louder than the elements and comes between the viewer and Ralston’s visceral reaction to his plight. It is not until the cathartic ending, when Ralston emerges from the canyon into the light, that Rahman’s genius for hitting the right emotional note strikes its most potent chord. Halfway through, I feared that Boyle may have bitten off more than he could chew, but such is his skill as a filmmaker, so sure his instinct for the journey of personal discovery, that Aron’s cry from the heart to the hikers he sees when at last he is free – a cri de coeur that we all need to make at some time – comes as an unexpected but deeply moving climax. This is a wonderful movie. ~ John Campbell

briefcase behind, so, while she checks in, and without telling her, he jumps into another taxi to return to the airport. Uh oh, I thought, this is going to be one of those ridiculous movies in which contrivance, coincidence and nonsense are allowed to run unchecked solely for the purpose of kidding the audience into thinking how clever is the intrigue. Harris ends up in a four-day coma after that ill-fated second taxi careers off a bridge and into the river below – it is, unarguably, a beautifully filmed stunt, as are all the car chases and smash ups, of which there are plenty to keep any rev-head thrill seeker happy. Compounding his rotten luck, some wise guy has stolen his identity and Harris, without a passport or anybody in town who can identify him, cannot prove who he is. The plot thickens when his wife apparently does not recognise him. Fortunately for Harris, the cabbie, Gina (Diane Kruger), an illegal alien, is also a cute and tenacious blonde whom he effortlessly manages to track down, despite his unfamiliarity with the city and lack of German. In one unfathomable piece of editing, we see Harris, halfdrugged after being plugged in the neck with a syringe by a bad guy posing as a medico, making a frantic escape from hospital before, in the next shot, climbing out of the back of a rescue van at a fire.

Don’t fight them – use this chance to finally understand how those feelings of being ignored, overlooked or unsupported are working against you.

Muting the volume on your judgment channel – not always easy for Taurans – could allow you to hear a brilliant solution to a situation that seemed insoluble. G G EMINI: As this week dives from the empire of ideas into the sea of feelings, agendas turn inwards and personal – in your case to the deeper feelings churning beneath that eternally perky front. Stop–gap quick fixes which worked for the short term now need serious, in-depth reconsidering.

L SCORPIO: Do yourself a favour by not hanging out with angry, dissatisfied, unhappy people. This isn’t selfish: if there’s any way to help them, do it. If not, get on with handling this week’s existential dilemmas, which require pressing forward cautiously while not forcing decisions or showdowns.

Don’t gloss over problems though, and you could end up enjoying liberating breakthroughs, even a relationship rejuvenation.

Ballina bypass update

It’s not surprising that wet weather has delayed work on the $640 million Ballina bypass. Despite the weather, work on the 12-kilometre road, which starts south of the Big Prawn and finishes at the intersection of Ross Lane at Tintenbar, has been progressing well. The RTA is expecting the dual carriageway from Cumbalum to Ross Lane to be open in the near future. At the southern end of the bypass final pavement construction has started and by the end of April this year much of the bridge works will be completed. It is hoped that the southern end of the Ballina Bypass will be opened in the middle of next year. A community information session is to be held on Wednesday 2 March 2011. Please contact the project information line (1800 209 484) for more details. Community bus tours of the project are also being organised for different groups. Details about these tours are also available by contacting the project information line on 1800 209 484. It is great that the northern section will shortly be opened as it eliminates the notorious Tintenbar Hill section, which will then become part of a local service road.

The completion of the northern part of the Ballina bypass will allow work to start on the next stage of the Pacific Highway upgrade from Tintenbar to Ewingsdale. The RTA is currently preparing a list of preferred tenderers which should be finalised by the end of March 2011. It’s anticipated the successful tenderer will be named by mid 2011 and that work will start on the project by the end of this year. The entire Tintenbar to Ewingsdale upgrade is scheduled to be completed by 2014 at a cost of $780million. At the moment in the Ballina electorate I am proud to advise that $1.52billion is being spent or has been allocated on upgrading roads. That comprises Ballina Bypass ($640million joint Federal and State funding) Alstonville Bypass ($100million Federal funding), Ewingsdale to Tintenbar ($780million joint State and Federal funding). This is not only making our roads safer, it is also significantly boosting our local economy.

Local schools win Environmental Trust grants Three schools in the Ballina electorate have won prestigious Environmental Trust grants as part of the NSW Eco Schools program. Byron Bay High School, Southern Cross K-12 School at East Ballina and Main Arm Public School were among a select number of schools in NSW to receive the grants. Each grant is worth $2,500. The schools had to demonstrate why there was a need for their project, how it will make a difference to the environment and what educational experiences students will gain by undertaking the project. Byron Bay High School will use its grant for an aquaponics project. I visited the school recently to view first hand this exciting project. Students, teachers and parents will build a bush tucker and edible garden at Main Arm Public School. Southern Cross K-12 School will implement a waste wise project aimed at diverting a significant amount of recyclables and organic waste from land fill. There is strong competition for the grants which encourage students and teachers to look for innovative solutions to environmental issues. I congratulate the three schools and their teachers for their vision and commitment to the environment and I look forward to seeing the results of the projects this year.

NSW Liberals and Nationals pledge $5 million boost to regional tourism I welcome the recent policy announcement of the NSW Liberals and Nationals of a $5 million boost to regional tourism. The Northern Rivers region will get a minimum increase of $250,000 per year over existing funding. New South Wales has lost market share to other States in recent years, particularly to Queensland and Victoria, so the tourism industry will beneďŹ t substantially from this extra funding. Many of our tourists come from south-east Queensland which has been devastated by the recent ďŹ&#x201A;oods. This announcement is very timely and will help the Northern Rivers promote itself into other markets at a time when tourism is struggling.

Alstonville bypass update Weather permitting the Alstonville bypass is expected to be completed by the end of March. The project timeframe has been extended due to heavy rain and wet periods over the last several months. A problem was also recently identiďŹ ed with the noise barrier and it has had to be dismantled and replaced. The 6.2-kilometre bypass will start at Sneathâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Road at Wollongbar and rejoin the Bruxner Highway near the Tropical Fruit Research Station at Perryâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Hill. +85=9<<9?>@B?:53DCD1BD549>!E>5

Boost for Ballina Bombers Great news for the Ballina Bombers AFL club which has secured substantial funding from the State Government and the Ballina Shire Council to enable it to signiďŹ cantly improve lighting at Fripp Oval in time for the start of this yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s season. A grant of $71,000 was received from the NSW Governmentâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Community Building Partnership Scheme, and the Ballina Council has also committed $80,000 for the lighting project. #(E55>C<1>49C1<C?3?>DB92ED9>7 1>4D851<<9>1 Senior AFC is donating $5,500. This will see large lights erected on Fripp Oval which will allow the Bombers, and other AFL teams from the north coast, to play night games. It will also mean the Bombers will be able to train on the whole oval at night. Congratulations and I look forward to watching a game this season.

The Hinterland Way tourist drive Last year I publically raised the idea of a tourist drive called the Hinterland Way, which would take in parts of the old PaciďŹ c Highway around the Ballina and Byron Shire hinterlands when the new PaciďŹ c Highway upgrades are completed. The NSW Roads Minister, David Borger, recently advised me the RTA is discussing the concept with the Ballina and Byron councils and a working party has been established to investigate the proposal. Early discussions I have had with local supporters of the Hinterland Way tourist drive suggest it would take the route of what will be the old PaciďŹ c Highway when the Tintenbar to Ewingsdale upgrade of the PaciďŹ c Motorway is completed. Much of that stretch of road has spectacular views of the coast and hinterland and this lends itself to being promoted as a tourist drive.

Award for Ballina Mental Health Carers Support group Congratulations to the Ballina Mental Health Carers Support Group, which has received a NSW Local Carer Award. The Award recognises the outstanding contribution of individuals and organisations to caring for people in New South Wales. The Ballina Mental Health Carers Support group offers a safe, friendly and conďŹ dential environment where people who are carers, family or friends of a person with a mental illness, can support each other and know that they are not alone. The group meets on the fourth Monday of each month from 5pm-7pm at the Ballina Bowling and Recreation Club in Cherry Street, and operates under the auspices of the Schizophrenia Fellowship of NSW.

Neville Poynting hard at work, Gary Anderson and Don Page MP inspecting the progress of the new Ballina hockey ďŹ elds.

Ballina Hockey Club I was delighted to be invited to inspect the progress of the new Ballina hockey complex at Kingsford Smith Park. The project is nearing completion and it is hoped to be ofďŹ cially opened in April. This wonderful new facility has been built with a lot of community spirit and generosity. The club house has been entirely built through the generosity of volunteer tradespeople and labourers. Local companies have generously donated kitchen equipment and a security system. The total project cost was $1.1million. Ballina Shire Council contributed $400,000, NSW Sport and Recreation gave $100,000, and an anonymous benefactor donated $250,000. The Ballina Hockey Club also raised $60,000 and volunteers have given thousands of dollars in in-kind donations. The facility is estimated to attract 8,500 visitors to Ballina every year, many during the winter months, which is a slow period for tourism. The hockey complex meets international standards and features a synthetic turf playing ďŹ eld, a beautiful club house, spectator grandstands, canteen, change rooms and toilet facilities.

$2.1 million for Ballina District Hospital The Federal and NSW Governments have announced $2.1 million in funding for the Ballina District Hospital, which will be used to provide seven new sub-acute beds. This follows the construction of the new rehabilitation and transitory care unit.

Revitalising Regional NSW The NSW Liberals and Nationals believe regional NSW is a great place to live, work and raise a family. We want to kick start regional areas like the North Coast by building better infrastructure and creating more jobs. Accordingly, we will: N B51D5 1 >5G 9>6B1CDBE3DEB5 6E>4 ?6 29<<9?> 1>4   of this money will be spent on better infrastructure in regional areas; N B51D5  >5G:?2C9>B579?>1<1B51C2I7B1>D9>71 rebate on payroll tax of $4,000 per new employee. This effectively means that for every new employee employed in regional areas by a company that would normally pay payroll tax, no tax will apply due to the $4,000 rebate.

Community groups to get an extra $112,000 a year from local clubs The NSW Liberals and Nationals have developed a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) with Clubs NSW. The NSW Liberals and Nationalsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; plan will see a reduction in tax rates for registered clubs as well as an increase in their contributions to sports clubs, charities and community organisations. I have signed the MOU with representatives from local clubs. The MOU outlines the key measures that will be introduced to help secure the long-term ďŹ nancial viability of NSW clubs as well as the increases in donations they will make to the local community. The MOU sets out a number of key measures including a reduction in club taxes, which will save clubs in the Ballina 5<53D?B1D5=?B5D81>  1I51B

Local clubs currently donate more than $5 million annually to community groups and activities, and this will increase by an additional $112,000 per annum under this policy. The 18 clubs in the Ballina electorate employ more than 400 people and make signiďŹ cant contributions to the local economy. The Clubs and Community Rescue Package will ensure the money spent at local clubs gets put back into the communities that support them.

I congratulate all of the successful applicants.

Police Numbers & Allocation I am very concerned about our police strength in the area, especially the number of police who are not available for active operational duty. For example, at Ballina Police Station there are currently 29 police ofďŹ cers, but only 19 are available for operational duty. The other ten are on light duties or sick leave. When determining police strength, those police not available for active operational duty are still included as if they are available. The other problem is that there appears to be anomalies with the allocation of police numbers across the state with some regions having many more than others. Accordingly, the Liberal and Nationals policy is to conduct an audit of police operational strength to see what changes need to be made to current allocations.

The Ballina High School Marine Discovery Centre has received a $50,000 Schools First Impact Award from the National Australia Bank. The money will go towards ďŹ nishing displays and aquariums in the outstanding Gary Thomson, President Ballina High School P&C, Lynda Hourigan, Ballina Marine Discovery Centre Marine Discovery Resource Co-Ordinator with Don Page MP Centre. Ballina High School is one of 68 schools around Australia to receive a Schools First Impact Award. It is a national awards program that encourages schools to partner with their community and is based on the view that strong school â&#x20AC;&#x201C; community partnerships can make a signiďŹ cant difference to outcomes for young people, including increased skills and greater engagement with learning. Thanks to the NAB for supporting the Ballina High School.

Ballina and Byron Councils have received funding for cycleway projects as part of the NSW Coastline Cycleway program. Byron Council will receive $175,000 for a 440m extension of pedestrian path and cycleway along Ewingsdale Road, immediately west of Byron Bay. Ballina Council will use its $150,000 grant for a 1.2-kilometre extension of the Ballina CBD cycleway between Regatta Avenue and Kerr Street.

At last â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Magistrate ďŹ nding will override RTA demerit points At long last a motorist who has their ďŹ ne overturned by a Magistrate will also have the demerit points associated with the alleged offence erased. Back in 2004 I raised the issue of how unjust it was for a motorist who has their trafďŹ c ďŹ ne waived by a Magistrate because of some mitigating circumstances, to still have the demerit points recorded against their licence. The Nationals and Liberals had moved legislation in 2004 to ďŹ x up this anomaly. I welcome the belated adoption of our policy by the Government, but question why it has taken them since 2004 to act. In a case I raised in Parliament in 2004 a red P-plate driver at Byron Bay was pulled over by Police and given a penalty notice of $660 because two of his passengers were not wearing seatbelts. The Magistrate judged that he was in this instance not responsible for his passengers and waived the ďŹ ne, but the six demerit points were recorded which meant he also lost his licence. Because he needed his licence for his traineeship, he also lost his traineeship and his job â&#x20AC;&#x201C; a very sad outcome.

Tony McCabe and Don Page MP at the Ewingsdale site for the proposed Byron Shie Central Hospital.

Progress on new Byron Hospital site Planning for the new Byron Central Hospital continues with the Byron Shire Council now collating public submissions relating to the rezoning of the site. The proposed development provides for the construction of a 54bed hospital as well as an emergency department, acute medical beds, low risk maternity services for the Ballina and Byron shires and private and public surgical services for residents of the Byron shire. The proposal also includes a new Ambulance station. Once the rezoning is completed, which I expect to occur in the next couple of months, the Ambulance station will be built. Funding for the $1.4 million station is in the current budget and work will start as soon as the re-zoning process is ďŹ nalised. The new central hospital has been on the drawing board for many years. Until now, the Health Department has always advised that there is no point in doing all the ďŹ nal planning documentation (eg updated service plan) until the capital funding is in the budget. However, in recent times, especially with the Federal Government now contributing to capital works in health, I am strongly of the view that we have to make our central hospital project â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;shovel readyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; to attract the capital funding as it becomes available. Accordingly, the Liberals and Nationals policy is to provide the funding to make the project shovel ready.

Television Guide 1. The usually suave Pierce Brosnan plays a sociopath in the Canadian thriller Butterfly On A Wheel (Prime, Friday, 8.30pm). The title is a literary allusion to Alexander Pope’s work, so no wonder the Americans called it Shattered instead. 2. Josh Peck plays the troubled teenager who falls in love with his psychiatrist’s daughter in The Wackness (SBS1, Saturday, 10.05pm). 3. The peerless master of the nature doco, David Rabbitburrow, is back with David Attenborough’s First Life (ABC1, Sunday, 7.30pm). That’s a sponge he’s examining, not a turd.

Bangalow Rugby has a short but proud history. Entering the competition in 2003, Bangalow has gone on to win five premierships in succession from 2005 to 2009. Last year the team made it to the SemiFinals before being eliminated in a game that many spectators recall as the most entertaining match of recent history. With the 2011 season fast approaching, Bangalow Rugby’s season kicked off with some pre-season touch rugby to help dust off the old cobwebs and get back into shape. Playing in the Far North Coast Village Competition, Bangalow Rugby Club is on the lookout for new players. Bangalow competes in a pool of eight teams ranging from Murwillumbah in the north to Yamba in the south. With the standard of Village rugby having improved dramatically in recent years, the competi-

held by Ms Thomas since 1987 when she won the 50metre breaststroke. Students from Ocean Shores Public School performed extremely well at the event – together the team won the overall schools point score with 22 students qualifying for the Far

North Coast carnival on February 23. Notable successes were by Senior Boy Champion Cody Plautz who will represent the school in seven events and Junior Girl Champion Cheyenne Pyne who won four out of the five events she competed in.

=FI(FIK?<IE,@M<IJ=8D@C@<J At Tweed District Dental we know how important it is to protect your face while playing sports. The summer and winter months bring an increase in outdoor activities and a greater chance of damaging your precious mouth and pearly whites. Dr Jackson and our team also know sports-related injuries are common among children. Only 30% of children wear mouth guards when playing sports such as football, cricket, basketball, hockey and soccer. So be safe and book now for your professional preventative mouth guard at the special price of $55 or if you are in a health fund you will be bulk billed for your mouth guard. Always lots to smile about. Tweed District Dental.

MOUTH GUARDS $55 EACH OR HEALTH FUND REBATES ONLY For more information on ‘Lots to smile about’, better faces, less braces, phone (07) 5513 0900 <echowebsection=Sport>

ACOSS calls for action on rising energy prices affecting low-income households The recent report on energy prices from the Australian Industry Group highlights the urgency of a political consensus on Australia’s clean energy future, including a price on carbon and greater energy efficiency, but also adequate safeguards to prevent low-income households plunging further into poverty, according to the Australian Council of Social Service. ‘The AIG report confirms that energy prices will continue to rise sharply, placing ever more strain on people already struggling to meet their day-to-day living expenses, including their electricity and gas bills,’ ACOSS CEO Dr Cassandra Goldie said. ‘Only last week we saw figures from the Queensland Competition Authority showing the number of residential

electricity disconnections on the way up, with almost 20 per cent of these disconnections for pensioners or concession card holders. These numbers confirm a national trend. ‘Higher energy prices for industry inevitably flow through to consumers as higher prices for goods and services, and there is no doubt that low-income households are hardest hit by these increases. ‘People who live on fixed, low incomes just don’t have room to move. Something has to give. ‘ACOSS has long argued that current levels of income support are inadequate and keep families and individuals well below the poverty line. ‘For example, a person who is unemployed is currently living on $33 per day. And a single parent with two children is

trying to make ends meet on about $70 per day. ‘Neither of these groups currently receives the Utilities Allowance available to some others living on pensions, nor have their payments received a real increase in almost twenty years. ‘The AIG report confirms that Australian industry and households have benefitted from relatively low energy prices. ‘This report tells us that old fashioned energy from sources that cause carbon pollution will not stay cheap, regardless of whether we price carbon or not. ACOSS agrees with AIG that energy policy and climate policy need to be smart, coherent and aligned, which is not currently the case. ‘Most households, like most businesses, will benefit from

improvements in energy efficiency. Higher energy prices should encourage an investment in efficiency – house by house, business by business, across the grid. We need to begin that work now. ‘We call on all parliamentarians to work together to develop a sensible energy plan for our nation. This should include a price on carbon, in order to provide the certainty that industry needs and lead the transition to a cleaner future. ‘But critically it is essential that government action in the area of essential services includes measures that ensure disadvantaged groups, such as people who are unemployed, sole parents, people with disability and pensioners, are properly safeguarded,’ Dr Goldie said.

The ‘reform’ of kings and masters David D’Amato

With a troubled eye toward Egypt, and in fidgety counteraction to the political unrest there, Jordan’s King Abdullah has replaced the whole of his cabinet, directing the new prime minister to undertake ‘true political reforms.’ Ever the buzzword of political masters beleaguered by their own crisis-inducing attempts to constrain society, ‘reform’ is the favoured mantra of the Cult of the State and its many priests. The reformist approach – substituting trifling adjustments to the gears of the political machine for any radical alteration – is the castle-inthe-air delusion that mere periodic upkeep can keep said machine running smoothly. If we acquiesce in the approach of mere reform, then – at least for the drivers of the machine – everything will be all right, and we’ll remain, in Franz Oppenheimer’s phrasing, ‘servile labour motors’. King Abdullah’s got it half right with his answer to the indignant calls of Jordan’s protesters: dismissal of his govern-

ment. Of course, rather than letting a good thing stand, the king promptly got to work prodding his ministers’ understudies into their new posts, restoring the engine of exploitation before anyone could notice it was in the shop. The BBC’s coverage of the ferment in Jordan observed that its six million people have been ‘suffering from the rising food and fuel prices which have affected many of its neighbours’, and that the government hopes to allay frustrations with a new spending package. It would seem, then, that the Jordanian state is artlessly solicitous about the welfare of its people, but the state’s concessions are scanty next to its sizable cut as overarching middleman. As the obsequious instrument of ruling elites, the state fixes the flow of economic goods in order to allow those elites to take advantage of the high prices they’ve engineered. In the absence of extensive subsidisation of monopolists who are granted a completely unjustified right to stockpile capital – that is, in a real free

<echowebsection=Classifieds>

market – the levels of injustice and inefficiency we see today would be unknown. As an alternative to perfunctory and ultimately futile ‘reforms,’ the state could easily remedy the indispositions of its economic model simply by discharging not only a few of its agents, but by dissolving itself. Naturally, though, it has no interest in excising itself from economic affairs, of doing away with a program whereby, as Kropotkin said, ‘the workers are of no account’. It prefers instead to interject wherever it can, taxing a bit here, fencing off supplies there, sculpting a comfortable stronghold behind which the political class can live off of others’ industry. The only protests someone like King Abdullah might actually heed are those of the companies he apparently ‘privatised’ upon his ascension to the throne. The policies that naively earnest reformers hope to consummate through the violence of the state will never, in the end game, look very much like the wholehearted attempts at social reorganisation they start as. The political process,

because of its most basic and essential constitution, will envenom every good thing, lacing it with the overriding interests of the ruling class. Free markets, in contrast, lacking in all of the inherent failings of politics, catalyse the kinds of mutually beneficial transactions in goods and in ideas that draw society forward in true progress, not the whitewashed wastefulness of the state-corporate economy. The great, fundamental difficulty for anarchists is, and always has been, answering the question of how to literally reform society into a just, free and peaceful one without appealing to the ‘proper channels’ of statism. Whatever the answer is, we have all of history to show that it isn’t the counterfeit reform of the political process.

What’s happened to first time home buyers in Australia? Leading up to 2009, first home buyer stories dominated the media headlines – today they are rarely mentioned, according to RP Data. Prompted by recent data revealing that first home buyer activity was 17 per cent below long-term average levels during 2010, and was the lowest volume in six years, RP Data property research analyst Cameron Kusher analysed why this market is laying relatively dormant. In RP Data’s Property Pulse, Mr Kusher sums up his findings and sheds light on the first home buyer market. ‘It clearly looks as though first home buyers retreated to the sidelines during 2010,’ he said.

inside:

Property in focus pages 57, 59

A further measure of a decline in first home buyer market activity is evidenced by the number of housing finance commitments during 2010, which were at their lowest level in six years, with much of the demand brought forward during 2009. In fact, only 96,201 first home buyers committed to housing finance for the purchase of a home during this time – this is the lowest annual volume of first home buyers since 2004 and comes off the back of the largest number of first time buyers in a single calendar year in history during 2009. With the first home buyer less active during 2010, each state has recorded a lower proportion of firsttime buyer commitments compared with 2009. Currently, first home buyers are most active in Western Australia (18.9%), Victoria (16.8%) and New South Wales (15.4%). Meanwhile, they are least active in South Australia (12.4%), Tasmania (13.5%) and Northern Territory (13.6%). Mr Kusher said, ‘It’s clear that in 2009 the surge in first home buyers was due to low interest rates, improving affordability because of property value falls during 2008, and the First Home Owners’ Grant Boost which actually pulled forward the majority of first home buyer demand for 2010 into 2009.’ In 2010, the volume of first home buyers was 50 per cent lower than it was during 2009. Between 1993 and 2010, on average there were 116,284

first home buyer finance commitments annually. Interestingly, over the last 10 years first home buyers have become much more active at times when the market has been recording superior levels of value growth. Evidence of this was during 2001 when capital city home values increased by 18.7 per cent for the year. At this time ABS statistics highlighted that there were 145,000 finance commitments to first home buyers. The busiest year for first home buyers occurred in 2009 when more 190,000 housing finance commitments were recorded. At the same time, property values increased by 12.1 per cent in the same year. In most instances where there were periods of strong property value growth over the past 10 years, these have been accompanied by an above average volume of first home buyers. According to Mr Kusher, a higher level of first home buyer activity has had a positive impact on the residential property market which was no big surprise given that a greater volume of active first home buyers has a knock-on effect throughout the market encouraging more people to upgrade their homes. ‘Savvy first home buyers should probably be looking to become active

in the marketplace during the quieter years as market conditions tend to be much more in favour of buyers rather than sellers. These conditions provide first home buyers with more time to make a decision and secure the best possible price for their new home,’ Mr Kusher said. In all likelihood, you would expect first home buyers to be more active at times in when interest rates were lower; however, this hasn’t been the case, says Mr Kusher. By looking into interest rates in December of each year, the data actually show that between 2000 and 2010 there were only three years (2001, 2008 and 2009) where interest rates were below average and when there was an above average level of first home buyer activity during the year. According to Mr Kusher this indicates that first home buyers are not necessarily as sensitive to interest rates as one might expect. In saying this, 2009 recorded the greatest number of first home buyers in history and was also the time in when interest rates were at their lowest level in almost 50 years. Despite such a strong focus on first home buyers and their prevalence in the market, between December 2000 and December 2010 they have

only accounted for an average of 18.5 per cent of owner occupier finance commitments on a monthly basis. As at the end of 2010, first home buyer finance commitments accounted for 15.8 per cent of all owner-occupier commitments. Mr Kusher said that this may be a major contributor to the fact that property value growth has been significantly lower during 2010 than it was in 2009. With 2009 the most active period in history for first home buyers, an interesting point to note is that at their monthly peak, first home buyers only accounted for 28.5 per cent of housing finance commitments to owner occupiers. (Note: this does not include finance commitments to investors which the ABS does not publish at the same level of detail.) Mr Kusher said, ‘With interest rates at above average levels and recent strong property value growth, affordability constraints have once again become present in the current market. ‘Now that job security is reasonably high and unemployment sitting at five per cent, the prospect of wages growth and a higher degree of confidence around interest rate movements, it is possible we may start to see an uptick in first time buyers numbers later in the year.’

Property News Extra

Tenants win under new rental laws The most significant legislative modernisation to tenancy in over 20 years comes into effect this week with the rental landscape in New South Wales set to change for both landlords and tenants. According to Ray White, the largest property management company in New South Wales, areas previously unlegislated will now have more clarity and regulation but there are some holes for investors. Director of Property Management Ben White says that in the Residential Tenancies Act the implementation of a ‘break lease fee’ will dramatically alter the rental industry. ‘Previously, if a tenant left the prop-

erty prior to the lease period ending they would have to compensate the landlord for the expense of re-letting. Now they simply pay a break-lease fee. The fee will, in many cases, be less than the compensation for reletting: a win for tenants but a loss for landlords particularly in high vacancy markets,’ Mr White said. ‘In a low rental vacancy market like most of inner Sydney, for instance, the premise would likely be re-leased quickly but in high vacancy markets landlords could now be without rental income for months.’ Some previously unlegislated areas will now have clarity on paper, ac-

58 February 22, 2011 The Byron Shire Echo

cording to Mr White who says this will hopefully reduce the number of disputes arising from grey areas in the previous legislation, particularly in event of rent reductions, mortgagee repossessions of rented premises and the tenancy database. ‘Tenancy is going to become more and more prevalent in NSW: factors like strong population growth in metropolitan and coastal NSW coupled with the perception that Generation Y will be renters rather than buyers mean it’s crucial that the landlord-tenant relationship is legislated and regulated.” Tenants also benefit from exten-

<echowebsection=Real Estate>

sions to eviction notice periods – 30 days up from 14 for standard leases and for periodic leases a total of 90 days.

‘Shared tenancies will also be made more fluid and bonds can be paid in installments rather than provided upfront – this will certainly appeal to students who are particularly transient in their rental movements and do not always have full bond amounts on hand.’ Mr White said overall the new legislation brings NSW into greater harmony with Victoria and Queensland tenancy legislation.

Backlash Shire Council has pictures of the cane toad tadpole at www. byron.nsw.gov.au/cane-toads in the PDF â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Frog or Toad?â&#x20AC;&#x2122;. The larger buggers can be caught in a plastic bag, cooled down in the fridge and then transferred to the freezer to join Walt Disney in Cryoland, the happiest kingdom of them all. Just donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t get your toad and icecream containers mixed up. QQQQ

While the debate is raging, if thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the right word, in the letters pages about cannabis, we refer you to a new study published by The Lancet on November 1 last year. Researchers led by Professor David Nutt, a former chief drugs adviser to the British government, asked drug-harm experts to rank 20 drugs (legal and illegal) on 16 measures of harm to the user and to wider society, such as damage to health, drug dependency, economic costs and crime. Alcohol is the most harmful drug in Britain, scor-

Booboo alert: our page 3 story last week wrongly stated that a proposed amendment to the Byron LEP 1988 was related to the West Byron Landowners holdings. Apparently it refers to the land near the intersection of Ewingsdale Road and McGettigans Lane and land on William Flick Lane, adjacent to the proposed hospital site. The Echo apologises to the landowners and to Crs Tucker and Woods for misreading the item to which their motion referred. The drudge responsible has been locked in a room with a tape loop of Wilson Tuckey reading Desiderata.

ing 72 out of a possible 100, far more damaging than heroin (55) or crack cocaine (54). It is the most harmful to others by a wide margin, and is ranked fourth behind heroin, crack, and methamphetamine (crystal meth) for harm to the individual. Tobacco comes in at 26 and cannabis at 20. If cannabis were decriminalised for those over 25, mature adults could enjoy a drug considered by experts to be less harmful than alcohol while restricting use by the young. Ecstasy comes in at 10 (with virtually zero harm to others). Mind you, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s hard to find pure MDMA these days â&#x20AC;&#x201C; better stick to the cordial. QQQQ
