The push for affordable housing Ray Moynihan

Local councils could set levels of affordable housing in major residential developments, under legislation the Greens will bring to the next state parliament. The party unsuccessfully pushed for similar laws two years ago, but with the predicted demise of Labor on March 26, the Greens now have a chance of holding the balance of power in the state’s Upper House, boosting their influence over government actions.

The affordable housing strategy is part of a package of planning reforms, including banning corporate donations repealing the controversial Part 3A of the Planning Act which allows councils to be over-ruled, and creating an independent commission to decide on big developments.

MP Don Page’s response A likely cabinet minister after the election, the Nationals Don Page, told The Echo the coalition’s policy announcements on affordable housing had focused on Sydney, but he would

personally push for land already earmarked by council for release to be made available more quickly. Citing the West Byron plans as an example, Mr Page said he would generally like to see up to one quarter of the houses in major developments set aside as affordable, as long as infrastructure was adequate. Karin Kolbe, independent candidate for Ballina – which includes Byron – agreed councils should play a role in planning affordable housing, and pointed to the importance of continued on page 2

This year’s Splendour in the Grass festival will again be held in Woodfordia, near Woodford, in south-east Queensland. Organisers have confirmed that it will be held across three days from Friday July 29 to Sunday July 31, and added that any damage inflicted on the Woodfordia site during January’s devastating floods throughout SE QLD will be well and truly repaired by the time of the festival. ‘We wouldn’t be announcing Woodfordia as the location for the 2011 Splendour In the Grass festival if we weren’t completely confident that was the case,’ said Splendour’s co-producers Jessica Ducrou and Paul Piticco. This will be the second year that Splendour in the Grass will be held at the Woodfordia location. The approval process for the festival’s site at North Byron Parklands in Yelgun is currently under NSW Department of Planning review. ‘The NSW Department of Planning are still processing the North Byron Parklands application for a sustainable cultural arts and music event venue,’ Matt Morris, General Manager, North Byron Parklands told The Echo. ‘It is hoped that they will make a decision shortly.’

Come along to The Echo’s Affordable Housing Forum Affordable Housing Forum: Wednesday March 16, 6:30 for 7pm Byron Community Centre, free entry The Echo’s first forum for 2011 will explore the depth of the housing affordability crisis, and debate ways to address it. The night will feature a presentation by Australia’s foremost affordability advocate, Professor Julian Disney, chair of the National Affordable Housing Summit, and former head of the Australian Council of Social Services, who is being brought to Byron with

support from North Coast Community Housing and Apartments Inn. If you’re experiencing the crisis first hand, come and share your story, and join with others who are helping shape the community’s response to this longstanding problem. The forum will be chaired by author and Echo reporter Ray Moynihan, and will include the participation of key players in the local housing sector.

The push for affordable housing Ending â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;illegalâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; holiday letting could make up to 600 houses available continued from page 1

developers working with housing providers to offer lower cost housing. During a recent Byron Council discussion on affordable housing councillor Simon Richardson â&#x20AC;&#x201C; the Greens candidate for Ballina â&#x20AC;&#x201C; argued an end to â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;illegalâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; holiday letting could see up to 600 houses made available to ordinary families, who are facing skyrocketing rents and unaffordable house prices. The complexities of the issue are highlighted by controversy over plans for a 33-unit boarding house at the Brunswick Heads squash court. The local Community Care group opposes the high-density development because the â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;qual-

ity of lifeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; for residents would be â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;seriously constrainedâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;. It cites concerns that some rooms will have no outdoor area and little natural light, and some are the minimum size allowable by law, which is just 12 square metres. Community Care president Michele Grant says there needs to be a balance between incentives for developers and the standard of living for tenants.

Room the â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;size of an average carâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; Damian Farrell, coordinator of the Byron Emergency Accommodation Project, says his group was approached by the developers for a formal letter of support for the Brunswick

Heads boarding house, but declined to offer it. â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;We gave it consideration but felt the quality of accommodation was not conducive to living well, it was too densely packed,â&#x20AC;&#x2122; said Mr Farrell, adding that the size of some rooms appeared comparable with the space given to an average car. â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;If thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the model of affordable housing, the community is not going to go for it,â&#x20AC;&#x2122; he said. â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s got to be affordable but not a major compromise to quality of life.â&#x20AC;&#x2122; Byron Community Centre general manager Paul Spooner, who received a similar request for support for the boarding house, said his organisation didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have a posi-

tion either way. Citing questions over whether rooms would be rented by low-income workers, or ultimately by backpackers, Mr Spooner said the Brunswick Heads plan underscored the difficulty in determining which projects were genuinely affordable housing. The Stebbing family proposing the boarding house declined to comment to The Echo, but the development received support from John McKenna, general manager of North Coast Community Housing, though he also raised questions about room size. â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;While 12 square metres is allowable, for long-term housing it could be considered on the small side for this region.â&#x20AC;&#x2122;

Lawn grubs and without a management plan: Ewingsdale sports field raises questions Eve Jeffery

An army moved into the field but has since departed. The Byron Regional Sport and Cultural Complex (BRSCC) was recently infested with lawn grubs â&#x20AC;&#x201C; sometimes called army worms â&#x20AC;&#x201C; however the creatures have since been sprayed out of existence, say Council. It is uncertain whether the bugs were transported in the grass or infested the turf after it was laid last October. Councilâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s executive manager Phil Holloway said spraying for grubs and or insects is a routine maintenance task for all sports fields in the Shire. â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;The lawn grubs were quick to find the newly laid turf, but

as to how they got there we are unsure.â&#x20AC;&#x2122; He said the worms are now under control and do not appear to have caused any longterm damage and that the turf was being maintained during construction. â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;The sporting and cultural complex has a turf maintenance contractor who will be monitoring the sports fields closely for any insect and or grub outbreaks.â&#x20AC;&#x2122; Since before the project began, it is common knowledge that the GM was not in favour of the facility for financial reasons and the issue of the grubs has raised the question of the ongoing maintenance of the fields. In a report to Council in November 2009, the General

Manager Graeme Faulkner stated: â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;This paper alerts Council to the potential for the Byron Regional Sport and Cultural Complex (BRSCC) project to become an unmitigated financial disaster for Byron Shire ratepayers and recommends that Council takes advantage of a window of opportunity to â&#x20AC;&#x153;walk away from the projectâ&#x20AC;? at minimum cost to Council and ratepayers.â&#x20AC;&#x2122; Mr Holloway said the cost of the upkeep of the fields is yet to be determined. â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Funding for the BRSCC was for capital costs, not ongoing maintenance costs. As with any community infrastructure asset, there are ongoing operational costs to maintain the asset. â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;It could be undertaken by a

contractor or by Council staff. The â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;howâ&#x20AC;? the BRSCC field maintenance will be undertaken is yet to be decided. Council will need to budget for these costs over coming years.â&#x20AC;&#x2122; In answer to the question of why local turf wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t used, Phil Holloway said the BRSCC project sourced suppliers through an open tender process. â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;All local suppliers and service providers are eligible to submit to the BRSCCâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s tendering requirements. â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;It is up to the suppliers, whether local or not, to determine if they can deliver the product or service at a competitive price as per the tender document specification. â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;In regard to the turf tender, no local suppliers made a submission.â&#x20AC;&#x2122;

Unsupported by government Dairy farmers struggle with the deregulation of the industry in light of $1 a litre milk plement a policy to protect not is not sustainable, the cost to New Collective Victoria Cosford just dairy farmers but all ag- the Australian public and the Donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t blame the supermarkets ricultural industries,â&#x20AC;&#x2122; Suzanne Australian government will be Bargaining Group for the milk price war, blame the Australian government. This is the message from Burringbar-based dairy farmers Robert and Suzanne Harnett, who recently made a submission to the Senate inquiry into Colesâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; and Woolworthsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; price war on milk. In January, the supermarkets, which control around 80 per cent of the market, cut the price of generic brand milk to just $1 a litre. To date, the Senate inquiry has been inundated with submissions from similarly panicked farmers and small grocers.

Lack of leadership The Harnetts believe it is the lack of leadership from both state and federal governments that has allowed supermarkets to have complete control over 70 to 80 per cent of the fresh milk market in Australia. â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Government needs to im-

told The Echo.

Price war fears She says a milk price war is precisely what northern NSW dairy farmers have feared since deregulation, and saw the removal of minimum farm-gate prices for the fresh milk market. â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;These prices are now set by contract negotiations between processors and the farmers, and reflect returns received from the retailers. â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Processors and dairy farmers therefore rely on the margin from branded milk sales for their profitability.â&#x20AC;&#x2122; The Harnetts say that dairy farmers fought hard against deregulation because they feared that without a regulated farmgate price, the supermarkets would control Australiaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s fresh milk market â&#x20AC;&#x201C; and this is exactly what has happened. â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;If Australian agriculture

apparent within this decade.â&#x20AC;&#x2122; Peak consumer group Choice echoes their sentiments regarding the need for federal government intervention and responsibility, calling on a whole-of-government approach to a national food policy. In its submission to the Senate inquiry, it expressed the concern that not even consumers will ultimately benefit if short-term heavy discounting has the effect of reducing product choice, or undermining food security in the medium or long term. Consumers may well be enjoying the slashed milk prices for now â&#x20AC;&#x201C; but at what cost to our agricultural industry? Dairy is Australiaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s third largest rural industry, with a value of over $3.4 billion at the farm gate, employing over 100,000 people mostly in regional and rural areas.

In the meantime, as a result of the price slashing, a new collective bargaining group has formed, calling itself East Coast Milk Producers. Representing farmers from the Hunter Valley in the south of the state to southeast Queensland, the producer group hopes to be able to negotiate better deals for farmers through banding together, and has registered with the Australian Competition and Consumer Commission (ACCC). Cost of joining is $50 per farm and anyone interested in finding out more should contact co-founder David Binney, dairy farmer from Kyogle, on 0429 323 007. To access a copy of Choiceâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s submission to the Senate inquiry on the impacts of supermarket price decisions on the dairy industry, go to www. choice.com.au/milkprices.

He claims more freight can take up the huge increase in freight that is expected is needs to go on rail. â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;The Pacific Ocean could also naive. â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;We donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have the rail lines, be used as a freight corridor for faster, smaller ships carrying we donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have the economic containers up and down the backing to build more tracks, and we donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have the abileast coast of Australia. â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;These other modes of trans- ity to deliver goods directly to Hans Lovejoy

stores! Until such time as we have point-of-sale delivery for rail, this really isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t a topic that can be taken seriously. â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;ATANSW fully supports B-triples on appropriate highways, which is dual carriageways. The freight task is predicted to â&#x20AC;&#x201C; at least â&#x20AC;&#x201C; double over the next ten years and if we intend to move freight as safely as possible then we must embrace better technology. â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;If we do not fully embrace higher-productivity trucks like B-Triples, then the only other answer can be more trucks on our roads. â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Communities expect, and rightly so, to have their food,

medicines, fuel, etc in the most efficient and timely manner. We need to look for ways to have less trucks on the road, not more!â&#x20AC;&#x2122; The Liberal/National Coalition, if elected in March, will â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;simply not allow B-triples on the Pacific Highway,â&#x20AC;&#x2122; says Mr Page. â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;We also have an assurance from Infrastructure Australia CEO Micheal Deegan that Btriples will not be permitted on the Pacific Highway. â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Even when the highway is fully dual carriageway, there would still have to be a review to see whether the road meets the appropriate standards,â&#x20AC;&#x2122; Mr Page said.

High rents hurting Byron retailers Retail tenants and landlords should co-operate, says Byron United Victoria Cosford

President of Byron United Sevegne Newton believes that Byron retail tenants should approach their landlords directly. At a time when many businesses are struggling to stay afloat, she feels that one solution is to establish a co-operative relationship with landlords. ‘People need to work together,’ she told The Echo. ‘There’s no retailer out there at the moment who is not doing it tough – and landlords need to be aware of it, that retail has been severely hit since the GFC. And eBay has made it worse.’ After a Chamber of Commerce newsletter Sevegne sent out several weeks ago voicing the issues currently facing local businesses, she was ap-

proached by three who were concerned about the continuing increase in rents. She told The Echo that rent should be 10 to 12 per cent of a business’s annual turnover and anything over that was a ‘recipe for disaster. ‘Even an annual increase of six per cent is totally unsustainable in the present economic climate. ‘What we’ve got is a load of businesses on the market – and real estate agents saying that these businesses have got nothing to sell.’ Making it even harder to sell a failing business, she said, are the high rents. Another issue is the lack of key money changing hands. Sevegne said that over the last six months there has been no exchange of key money. ‘So what a lot of businesses

are doing is just shutting up shop. How can businesses grow in Byron? ‘It’s a very different time now. Retail is doing it so tough, and landlords need to know that they have to be cost-competitive.

‘Landlords don’t support tourism’ ‘Vacant shops give people the opportunity to negotiate with their landlords.’ Sevegne said that multinationals would indeed take over the town if tourism keeps dropping. ‘The landlords should be comarketing with you! ‘Big shopping centres market themselves but here landlords do nothing to support tourism. ‘The small, distinctive businesses would eventually disap-

pear altogether. ‘If people love the interesting little shops they need to support them,’ she said. Her advice to everyone is to go directly to the landlord, or write to them, rather than their managing agents, the real estate agents. ‘If you are genuinely doing it tough and you’ve been a good tenant, you’ve really got to go and speak to your landlord. ‘No landlord wants to lose a good tenant – it’s not in their best interests. ‘Every time you sit down and accept another six per cent increase you’re establishing the market for everyone else. ‘Go and talk to the business next door and find out what they’re paying. ‘Information is knowledge. Then find out your landlord’s name and approach them directly.’

Coastal plan swamped in confusion and court battle Byron Shire Council’s aim to get a coastal management plan in place failed at a meeting last week. While Mayor Jan Barham regarded the Coastal Zone Management Plan (CZMP) plan as a sound document and wanted to incorporate some directions from environment minister Frank Sartor, other councillors found the process confusing and the mayor’s motion was lost 7-2. In addition, landowners at Belongil have thrown a spanner into the works by taking both Council and Minister Sartor to the Land and Environment Court.

Beauty treatments aid orphanage Photo & story Victoria Cosford

A Lennox Head beauty salon has come up with a fundraising idea with a difference. Ballina Street’s Inner Beauty will donate all proceeds from treatments performed on Wednesday March 16 to Isaiah’s Home of Love Orphanage in Africa. Owner Lisa Bailey told The Echo that her brother Murray, a pastor, had visited Zimbabwe in late 2010, staying for three months at the orphanage in Bulawayo where he helped care for the babies there. ‘I just thought that instead of just donating cheques for the

shop, I would rather do it this way,’ she said. ‘I feel like it’s a little family over there and it’s good to know that the money we send

goes directly to help them.’ She said that the orphanage was Murray’s particular passion and that she hopes to do more of this on a regular basis.

Independents don’t deliver as much as major parties, says Coalition MP Hans Lovejoy

State Member for Ballina, Don Page, has refuted claims by Independent Karin Kolbe that Independents can deliver more to electorates. Her comments were published in last week’s Echo, and in response Mr Page referred to a report on the topic. ‘Recently the NSW Auditor General did a detailed analysis of grants received over a five year period,’ Mr Page told The Echo. ‘Specifically, he looked at grants to all seats in State Parliament, Labor, Coalition and Independent seats. ‘The report says, “Safe major party electorates got $1.29 for

every dollar received by marginal and independent electorates… our analysis indicated that marginals did worse than safe seats regardless of who held them.” ‘In addition, I point out that the Ballina electorate is the recipient of $1.52 billion in road funding (both state and federal); the highest of any electorate in New South Wales. Not only is the claim by the Independent candidate absurd, it is contradicted by no less a person than the NSW Auditor General. ‘As for the Independents getting funding for hospitals in Dubbo and Tamworth, these seats have been represented by Independents for the last

eight years (Dawn Fardell in Dubbo, and Peter Draper in Tamworth). ‘They have not delivered these hospitals during their two terms in office. It has been the Nationals candidates, Troy Grant (Dubbo) and Kevin Anderson (Tamworth), who have extracted the commitment from an incoming Coalition state government should they be elected on March 26. ‘The credit surely goes to the Nationals candidates, not the Independents – backed by Labor – who have not delivered.’ The full report can be found at www.audit.nsw.gov. au/publications/reports/performance/2009/grants/execsum.htm.

Wastewater plant upgrades for Ballina/Lennox Ballina Shire Council has awarded a contract to Haslin Constructions Pty Ltd to undertake a major upgrade of the wastewater treatment plants that service Ballina and Lennox Head. A recycled water plant is planned to be part of the upgrade. Council says the project, which has just commenced, is estimated to cost $45 million and take two years to complete. Mayor Silver said, ‘This project is a major step for the future of the region’s water supply and for Council to meet its goal of reusing 80 per cent of the water from its wastewater treatment plants by 2026.’ and I am delighted that this decision will allow our vision to be implemented.”

Festivals and events funding announced by Ballina Council Ballina Shire Council have announced four events have been successfully funded in the 2011/12 Festivals and Events Support Program. Council says the program provides the opportunity for Ballina Shire community events to access up to $50,000 in funding. Funding this year has been allocated to the Ballina Coastal Country Music Festival ($20,000), Marine Rescue NSW’s ‘Ballina Boat and Leisure Show’ ($16,725), Ballina Lighthouse & Lismore SLSC ‘Ballina Island Paddle Challenge’ ($500), and Apex Club of Alstonville ‘New Years Eve Family Festival’ ($14,000).

North part of Ballina bypass opens to traffic The northern section of the Ballina Bypass on the Pacific Highway was officially opened to traffic on Tuesday, March 1. Federal Infrastructure and Transport Minister Anthony Albanese said the opening occurred many months earlier than originally scheduled, thanks to the federal Labor government’s decision to bring

forward $100 million in its very first budget. ‘The opening of the 5.9 kilometre northern section between Cumbalum and Ross Lane marks a major milestone in the delivery of the bypass,’ said Mr Albanese. ‘Once fully completed in 2012, this new piece of road infrastructure will improve safety, cut travel

times by up to 12 minutes and ease congestion on the streets of Ballina. The construction of the bypass is just one of many projects being funded as part of the $3.6 billion capital works program being rolling out up and down the Pacific Highway. ‘Compared to the former Howard government, we’re investing more than twice as

much in the half the time.’ The Ballina Bypass is a jointly funded project, with the Gillard Labor government contributing $526 million and the Keneally Labor government a further $114 million. NSW Roads Minister David Borger said the project is on schedule for the southern section to be open to traffic next year.

Key money and Byron business sustainability Eve Jeffery

This issue of ‘key money’ has come to the forefront as one of the causes of financial struggle in the Byron Bay business community. Shopfronts in the central retail area of Lawson Street and Jonson Street from the clock tower to the beach have been rumoured to have changed hands with up to $300,000 in key money.

Not an issue after GFC: Byron United President of Byron’s business chamber group, Byron United, Sevegne Newton, said that she paid $40,000 in key money for each of her outlets in the town and she will absorb what she sees as a relatively low amount into her business. Sevegne says that Byron used to have a great deal of the payments exchanged in the past, but she doesn’t see is as such a huge issue these days. ‘There are quite a few emp-

ty shops in town. People just aren’t paying key money these days. All of that changed with the GFC.’ Ms Newton says that though it may appear that chain stores who can afford the key money are moving in, many of these are actually franchises owned and operated by locals and they can’t all be clumped in the multinational takeover basket. ‘There are large companies who want to establish a profile in Byron Bay. They can afford the key money and the high rent. ‘They have other shops in other towns that make a lot of money and they can absorb the loss in Byron just to have a presence on the street.’ She also says that when you have an area of high demand then key money becomes part of the reality, though she will not be expecting anyone, if she ever decided to close at some future point, to hand over $40,000 to her in an effort to recoup her outlay.

Key money still an issue: business owner Another business owner in town feels that the practice is alive and well. They told The Echo that it’s kicking the guts out of the place and that the town is in danger of losing its personality altogether, due to key money and unreasonably high rent. The retailer, who asked not to be identified, said that they had no idea about key money when they came to town but soon found that if you wanted a premises on the main street you were looking at anywhere between $200,000 and $300,000. ‘The problem is that there is still ridiculously high rent in the side streets making it impossible to earn a living. ‘The only alternative is the main area and to get into that you need a lot of money.’ The business owner said that a true test of a business’s worth

could only be gauged by a prominent position, and to get that you need to pay first and take the risk that your gamble is right. They said they took out a very large loan for key money and with upwards of $2,000 a week in rent they were putting a large proportion of their profit into paying back the bank and to the landlord. They also said that the high outlay was forcing locals out of town and chain stores were reaping the benefits and this was affecting the town overall. ‘I have had so many people come into my business and tell me that they used to love coming to Byron for the feeling of it and that this will be their last visit as they just won’t come back next year. ‘We are losing the independent flavour.’ They added that the only way they would be able to make the key money back would be to pass along the cost when they sell the lease, though they would lose the interest and would have to Rusty Miller has just dusted off a collection of slides and film negatives taken during the early 1970s while working for Tracks surfing magazine.

consider it a loss. The retailer also said that they had approached the landlord for a drop in rent to help ease the ongoing financial strain and they were met with an if-you-can’t-pay-it-someone-else-will attitude. ‘The high rents are unsustainable. We have looked at leaving the town. How much

do you want to put your head on a block for a community that won’t support you? ‘The reality is you might pay $300,000 for a lease, then interest and then rent. This is turning into a tragic circumstance for everyone involved. I don’t know if anyone can stop this. It comes down to supporting locally owned businesses.’

Rolling for Relay4Life Story & photo Victoria Cosford

Fishnets and fake eyelashes are just part of being a Byron Bay Roller. Formed less than a year ago, this group of roller-skating women between the ages of 22 and 48 have recently registered a team for the upcoming Relay4Life, the annual Cancer Council fundraiser. Given the main objectives of the group are achieving fitness and supporting the local community, they see their involvement as a logical fit. Vice President Kate Maurice told The Echo that roller-skating was ‘a fun and sexy way to get fitness, combined with theatre and entertainment’. The women have yet to undertake their first game, or ‘bout’, which is scheduled for June 12. Because the sport is quite dangerous they have been training for two hours twice a week and only now begin to feel ready. President Kelly Sullivan told The Echo that it was a sport which catered to women of all sizes, shapes and ages. ‘You need the whippy fast ones like Kate and also the big blockers,’ she said. ‘You get so much fitness and it’s so much fun. We’ve all really noticed an improvement in our fitness levels. ‘And the social aspect is really important. It’s really supportive of women in this area.’

Byron Bay Roller’s Kelly Sullivan and Kate Maurice

One issue the women face is lack of a suitable training venue. Many of the skaters have to travel long distances to get to training sessions. Kelly said that she had approached about 14 different venues around the Shire. ‘But no one is very keen on the idea of our skating there. We take a lot of care of the floors – and skating doesn’t hack up the

floor as much as, for example, tap-dancing.’ She said that for now the Bay Rollers train at both the Ballina and Tweed rinks. ‘They sell out 5,000-seat stadiums in Brisbane and 2,ooo-3,000-seat stadiums in Canberra – it’s a huge spectator sport,’ said Kate. The annual Cancer Council fundraiser will be held in Bangalow on March 12 and 13.

Councils get on board for the return of rail Cr Basil Cameron

Mayors, councillors and community groups, including TOOT, held a meeting on March 2, and resolved to establish a Regional Rail Taskforce for the return of rail. They also agreed to approach the Northern Rivers Regional Organisation of Councils (NOROC) for support to auspice the taskforce. The taskforce will consist of Councils from across the region as well as community groups.

Sitting state and federal MPs will also be encouraged to provide support. The objective of a Regional Rail Taskforce is to ensure high quality passenger and freight rail services that are affordable, frequent, accessible and connected; meet the current and future needs of locals and visitors; and are part of an integrated regional and cross border transport network Priorities for the Taskforce include establishment of commuter rail on the CasinoMurwillumbah line, linking the line to Coolangatta Air-

port, development of a Northern Rivers rail network and improvements to the North Coast line to expand capacity for moving freight onto rail. A Regional Rail Taskforce is the vehicle for local communities to speak with one voice. Regular commuter trains have enormous potential to help coastal communities better manage tourism visitors. Without a move to rail, residents faces major hardships in the face of rising petrol prices and the introduction of a price on carbon.

Singing the trains back at Byron Station A rally to restore railways in the region is planned at the Byron Station, Saturday March 12 from 4.30 to 5.30pm. A song entitled TOOT For The Future has just been released, and will be played on the platform. Organisers are inviting everyone who comes to the event to sing along while the event is recorded on video. ‘The video will show those in Sydney and beyond just how keen and committed the people of the Northern Rivers are to getting a regular light rail service up and running,’ or-

ganiser and singer/songwriter Garth Kindred said. He says he envisions a ‘Rainbow Train for the Rainbow Region that runs on biofuels, locally sourced from renewable sources such as macadamia nut and camphor oil. ‘It’s very possible,’ says Garth, ‘and we could organise to run our own regional railway, leasing from the state if the state is not about to do it. ‘Local government working in conjunction with local investors could make this a reality. We could have our own unique light rail service

and put back many of the little stations along the way to service the needs of all the people along the route as well as bring tourists to these little villages and towns. ‘Come along with a bag or backpack as if ready to catch a train. Also, if possible bring a placard expressing your support for the cause of getting trains back on the tracks.’ The song is available to listen to on www.toot.org.au. TOOT is also organising a rally at the unused Murwillumbah train station at 10.30am on Monday March 14.

Love thy neighbour by installing thy Solar Solar panels have been installed on St Martin’s Anglican Church, Mullumbimby, making the church completely powered by energy from the sun. Engineers from Lismorebased company, Nickel Energy, completed the installation of the 52 panels on the roof of the hall last month, according to Parish Priest Friar Benjamin Gilmour. ‘The photovoltaic panels will generate enough energy to power the building and its congregation’s energy needs for decades to come,’ he said. Nickel Energy’s Andy Turn-

bull added, ‘The anticipated output from this system is 14,691 kilowatt hours every year, which will not only reduce this Parish’s energy costs but their greenhouse emissions, too. ‘Caring for the environment by going solar is a fantastic way to show you care for your neighbours and your community. ‘This particular installation will lead to a carbon reduction of 15.69 tonnes into the atmosphere every year – that’s the equivalent of removing 20 cars from the road each year or planting 816 trees each year.’

Vicar Gilmour said going solar fits the central imperative of the Christian and Anglican mission. ‘As a Christian church, we have an obligation for the care of creation,’ he said, ‘and generating solar energy for our own use and to put back in the grid means we are being sustainable of our own energy needs and creating non-polluting energy for others.’ He said the installation of solar was made possible due to the generous donations of family members in the Mullumbimby community.

Ballina MP Don Page Q&A Hans Lovejoy

Don Page, from the Liberal/ National Coalition, is odds-on favourite to win the forthcoming state election in March. With a comfortable 14.5 per cent margin, he has held this seat since 1988. After eleven years of neglect of this electorate by Labor, Mr Page will certainly be in the position to offer more than he could previously. But what and how much? Mr Page says of infrastructure, ‘There is currently $1.52billion being spent on road upgrades in the Ballina electorate – the highest of any electorate in NSW. ‘The Ballina bypass federal commitment and funding was made by the then Coalition government, which was continued by Rudd.’ Independents and the Greens are calling on the Nationals/ Liberals to commit to funding rail on the North Coast, not just a study. Is this something you are prepared to do?

‘The upgrade of the rail line and the introduction of commuter and tourist trains, together with a connection to Queensland rail, will cost hundreds of millions of dollars, possibly over $1 billion. ‘The Liberals and Nationals

have consistently supported commuter and tourist services on the Casino to Murwillumbah line since rail services were axed by Labor in 2004. ‘To be credible, where such large sums of money are involved we must have the comprehensive study, otherwise governments (state and federal) will simply pass onto some other infrastructure project that does have an up-todate justification and which is “shovel ready.” ‘I live in the real world, whereas Simon and Karin [Greens and Independent] appear to be in a parallel universe, knowing they will never have to deliver. ‘We must do the study on rail so we know how to proceed, ie which sections to do first,which combination of services, what type of trains, costings, level of subsidy etc. There

has been no recent study done on these matters. ‘The rail study is not the only public transport initiative – for example we will double the amount spent on community transport.’ What is your position on Coal Gas Exploration (fracking) in the area? Do you support a moratorium on it until further studies can prove it safe for our water supply?

‘Yes.’ Part 3A legislation took development approval powers away from NSW councils. Is this something the Nationals/Liberals will abolish?

‘Yes, the Liberal/National Coalition have already committed to abolishing Part 3A so local communities have a say in what goes on around them.’

Local Profile

Where East meets West: Dr Adam Osborne Victoria Cosford

Looking like a cross between Marc Bolan from T Rex and The Doors’ Jim Morrison, Dr Adam Osborne has been offering Byron patients his own particular blend of western-based general practice and eastern philosophies for the last twenty years – making him one of the most sought-out physicians in the region. When did you become interested in Chinese herbal medicine and eastern techniques?

My mother was interested in natural medicine and I just felt that was what I was meant to do. After I graduated and did my residency on the heart transplant team with Victor Chang at St Vincent ‘s Hospital [in Sydney] I worked with a naturopath in Paddington. I always had a passion for natural medicine and going back to ancient forms of healing. I was interested in medical archaeology – I don’t know if there is such a term – but instead of digging up bones I was interested in digging up medical information. So I went to China in the 80s and studied Chinese medicine and acupuncture. I found it was good for muscular and chronic conditions – and I also found

www.echo.net.au

appearances improved. So all the different ways of treating people are as legitimate as curing the common cold. I’ve been doing it since 2003 and it was one of those things furthest from my intent. But basically we are treating people’s ageing and health from both the inside and the outside.

there was a school of Japanese blind acupuncturists. It’s a revered tradition going back to the 1600s and 51 years ago a school called Toyohari was established. It’s a huge school in Tokyo and I go back every year to their summer school. I’m standing on the shoulders of a long and ancient tradition… so, while still keeping people in a safe and grounded situation with western medicine, I am able to give them the benefits of ancient healing techniques.

Don’t you think it’s sad that people want to stay young forever?

What brought you to Byron?

I came here on holidays and immediately realised that this is a unique healing environment and I wanted to be part of it, and in my own way to contribute to it. You obviously love what you do…

Yes I do. It’s fantastic because we are creating a whole new type of medicine that’s leaning on the past, in such a beautiful place, and with the support of my beautiful wife Jodi and seven wonderful children, I feel very satisfied and fulfilled in what I do. We get a lot of phone calls and sadly we sometimes have to turn away a lot of people because I only have so many hours in the day.

You are becoming increasingly known as well for your cosmetic and ageing procedures. How did that come about?

It was happenstance actually. We frequently go to Indonesia for holidays and visit a doctor friend who had moved there and who has four successful

cosmetic clinics. He asked me to help, and because I know the meridians and how blood circulates in the face I found I was good at it. I found it was deeply satisfying seeing people improve their confidence and level of joy, become more sociable and socially effective by seeing their

<echowebsection=Local News>

All these things can be taken to extremes. I choose to discourage young people in their teens who come to me wanting these procedures – 18-yearolds wanting boob jobs and botox, for example. I think there’s peer pressure on very young people from the media, and I do feel sad and uncomfortable about the pressure on very young girls and boys to look better, and the cosmetic industry has got some culpability in that. But, on the other hand, I genuinely feel good health and good cosmetic procedures maximise people’s self-confidence and social potential. There is a lot of negative publicity about cosmetic procedures, that they’re superficial or self-indulgent etc – but it really can have a profound and positive effect on people. In fact a recent study showed that

it is a better cure for depression than anti depressants. Byron Bay has long been regarded as a place where people come to ‘be healed’ – a lot of that seems to be self-absorbed and narcissistic. What do you think?

Well, it does become selfindulgent, especially if it takes people off on the wrong track – they’re often naive, that’s the problem. There are people here who tend to be indulgent and narcissistic and focused on hedonism and they’re not really doing a lot for themselves or for the people around them in a positive way. People should really be looking inside and making themselves feel strong and healthy and glowing and take that to their families and to their environment. Sometimes I see people coming here saying I feel really selfish spending this money on myself instead of on my children – but I believe health starts with internally feeling good, feeling healthy and being healthy looking is an important part of it. The point is for me to be the best possible doctor. And everyone is unique and needs totally different things. Photo Jeff Dawson

It is true that the ACT assembly (or for that matter any other state or territory legislature) could purport to pass laws allowing same-sex marriage; but they would be instantly struck down by the High Court – the constitutional position is very clear and has been tested many times.

Farrell, Steve Hutchins and John Hogg (and yes, Virginia, they are all rightwing Catholics) get their knickers in a knot? Because The Australian’s distorted and misleading coverage, inevitably seized on by the anti-Labor shock jocks, implied that Julia Gillard and Labor had endorsed the Green agenda on same-sex marriage. It didn’t matter to them that this was demonstrably untrue; they were so eager to distance

themselves from the idea that they conspired with their Liberal opponents to have the issue shelved while they worked Gillard over. This provoked a predictable reaction from the Left, and enabled The Australian to claim that Labor was hopelessly split over its alliance with the Greens, which may well have been the point of the whole unedifying exercise. The Australian’s obsessive loathing of the Greens is now bordering on the psychotic; it has now spilled over into an indiscriminate attack on what it calls ‘inner city Labor followers’ as a whole. This, according to Shanahan, is code for progressives, the educated, the environmentally conscious; much to be preferred are traditional Labor voters – churchgoers, social conservatives, blue -collar workers. In fact the two groups have co-existed more or less harmoniously for at least 50 years: The Australian now sees it as its God-given task to blast them apart. But in attempting to use

same-sex marriage as the trigger, Murdoch’s mafia may have miscalculated. I’m sure I’m not unusual in that I can’t get very excited about gay marriage; it will have absolutely no effect on my wellbeing and, that being the case, I can see no good reason to oppose it. There are more important things to worry about. This logic is so selfevident that traditional Labor voters, most of whom would by now have at least one openly homosexual friend or workmate, will probably agree. Far from being a sacrament set in stone, marriage has been a movable feast throughout the Christian era. Originally it was taken seriously only by the aristocracy: it was about alliances, be they military or financial, and in practice had very little to do with sexual fidelity. The erosion of the feudal system broadened its appeal, but also gradually moved it out of the purview of the church; in fact the church has been losing its grip on marriage and divorce since the time of Henry VIII, and the rise of the middle class coincided with the growth of civil, rather than religious, ceremonies. When marriage celebrants can don gorilla suits or give Elvis impersonations, it is hard to see a wedding as a ritual hallowed and unbreakable, a mystery that transcends normal democratic practice. Perhaps it’s time to go back to basics; one ancient marriage ceremony consisted of the participants jumping over a broomstick as the celebrant (who could be anyone at all) chanted: ‘Jump rogue, and leap whore; married be for evermore.’ Of course these days it would need a little modification. How about a group wedding to the chant: ‘Jump, rogues and leap, whores; now it’s time to prepare for divorce.’ Now that would really give Shanahan something to rant about.

A bistro too far for Sunrise? The team behind The Sun were briefed by the development manager on day one to provide a high-quality proposal and a great venue for families with plenty of outdoor space and car parking. As a design team we are inspired by venues that take in the beautiful natural setting such as the Byron @ Byron. We also worked very closely with our acoustics consultant to ensure that we meet the standards for neighbouring residents. Our location on the edge of Byron means The Sun (as with Byron West Shopping Fair) is well positioned to cater for all the people who are turned off by the traffic and parking situation in Byron Bay, and the Sunrise residents have the advantage of being able to walk to and from this venue without needing to drive. Everybody understands that alcohol has its negatives. But in design and in management we intend to creative an environment that is welcoming for

Q

Our friend BayFM

There are pages in The Echo devoted to ‘art’ and artists. I would would like to see a few pages devoted to the artists who broadcast on BayFM. Some of them obviously spend an enormous amount of time, research and artistry in their productions. And then there are those who have gone before who are still missed. BayFM adds immeasurably to our quality of life. For many who live alone it is an intimate friend and a connective channel to the rest of us. Perhaps The Echo might find it in its heart to present awards

women and men, and mothers and fathers (with their kids) who might like to meet up for coffee, lunch, or dinner and a glass of wine or beer. Sure, these developments needs to be profitable, but the smart money is spent on developments which have a positive flow-on effect around them, that encourage the gentrification of the local area, and increase the feasibility of other new ventures. Dan Connolly

Project architect (and Byron Shire resident) Q The

new owners of the old Becton estate are now proposing to build a ‘pub’, to be called the Sun Bistro, beside the railway crossing on Bayshore Drive at Sunrise Beach. Given its proposed location and offered amenities – bistro, bar, bottle shop, children’s playground, carpark – it would have to seem one of the sillier business proposals I have come across in some time. in various categories, from the past and in the current sixmonth period by popular vote? BayFM is mostly first choice and the default setting for my soundtrack. Let’s give these dedicated artists the recognition they are worthy of. This, with the perspective of having been glued to a radio since about 1940.

There can be no disputing that the Byron industrial estate and Sunrise Beach subdivision are not the high end of town. It’s more an area where the less affluent moved to when the ‘big money’ came to Byron. By inserting a ‘pub’ beside a small and modest residential area, I can only see the developers making a very poor financial investment. The IGA shopping complex across the street already boasts a large bottle shop and several small cafés, so residents are already well serviced in terms of food and the drugs of their choice. A ‘pub’ (aka bistro), located outside the original resort at the mouth of Belongil Creek, could only expect to service locals drawn from the ‘small’ end of town. It would, I imagine, do little trade with out-of-towners and future resort guests. I cannot see the entire Sunrise ‘estate’ spending their days there drinking, so business would be very slow indeed. Meanwhile it may well encourage more lout-

ish behaviour in local streets and litter scattered far and wide, not to mention the noise factor for the many struggling young families. However, were such a ‘watering hole’ kept within the precincts of the resort itself, it might prove an asset for the entire area and maybe have some chance of turning a buck, especially with a restaurant attached – assuming it was open to the general public. There it would have a broader clientele – visitors, guests and locals – a ‘special’ place to visit and socialise. As this proposal stands I fear the Sun Bistro, backed onto the industrial estate, a modest residential area, a shopping complex and a swamp, would definitely not be an upmarket, value-enhancing addition. It it looks more like a quick way to lose money and devalue a young and family-oriented community.

I am saddened that our skilful mayor does not make better use of the media to correct the endless attacks on its performance encouraged by the likes of Fast Buck$ and John Lazarus. Many mayors across Australia write a regular column in the local papers providing information.

Dealing with the housing crisis Q I am writing in response to Ray Moynihan’s page one story in The Echo on February 22, which provided further evidence of the problems Byron Shire residents can experience trying to secure affordable rental housing. Leaving to one side the need for government policies to improve housing affordability over the long term, tenants can improve their rental position in the meantime by ensuring they know the legal basics regarding agreements with their landlords. My employer, the Northern Rivers Tenants Advice and Advocacy Service (NRTAAS), part of the Community Legal Centre in Lismore, provides free advice to renters regarding tenancy law. The NRTAAS covers tenants living in the Byron Shire; and now is a particularly appropriate time for tenants to contact the Service. Little more than a month ago, major changes to the Residential Tenancies Act – the legislation which governs the relationships between tenants and their landlords – came into effect. The changes were the most extensive to the Act since

Bridge of shame One of the few iconic structures in Mullumbimby, the Federation Bridge, at the moment is a disgrace to most residents of our town. When the ‘swimming pool’ type guard rail was installed some years back, it was obvious to most that it was going to be too weak, susceptible to damage, and wouldn’t last. It was a cheap and nasty way of trying to overcome a safety issue between cars and people using this narrow and busy bridge. It has created a maintenance problem over the years from damage by dysfunctional types as well as vehicles. Due to its poor design and installation, at times panels have been stupidly ripped out and thrown into the river. At the moment it’s more an eyesore than ever and an utter disgrace, with two panels missing and the rest, along with the historic concrete work, grimy, mouldy and damaged. Not a good look for residents or tourists alike. Nowhere would you see a road bridge, especially a high-use one like this, utilising ‘pool

it was introduced in 1987. While the Act made many significant changes to the rights of tenants, in the context of Mr Moynihan’s article, a couple are worth mentioning now: Where a tenant signs a fixedterm lease with their landlord, they cannot have it terminated before the expiry date just because the landlord sells the premises. Depending on the particular circumstances, tenants have a right to a written notice period of anywhere between 14 and 90 days where a landlord wants to end a tenancy agreement. It is crucial tenants are aware of their rights and responsibilities under the new Residential Tenancies Act. Tenants are encouraged to phone the NRTAAS on 6621 1022 or 1800 649 135. Matt Meir

type’ balustrading, separating the roadway from the footpath. I suggest this fence would never have the strength to deflect a serious blow from a vehicle away from any pedestrians alongside. What the bridge has needed all along is a galvanised pipe railing system (be it with some extra rails) to match that already existing on the other side of the footpath, plus a good cleanup to get rid of the mould and grit. The matching structure would create a neatness and proudness that is definitely missing at the moment. I understand that the RTA and not the Council is responsible for the bridge maintenance, so the RTA would have to fund the cost of repairs and rejuvenation. In that case, wish me luck in taking this issue further.

and thanks Eve Sinton for the Bonalbo recommendation. Both the Caribbean and Bonalbo seem a little inaccessible for me. Where did all the others go? Can anyone tell me? I want to reconnect with the folks who were more concerned with community caring and compassion than engaging in the great Aussie land grab. Any leads gratefully received. In the meantime, this is my goodbye to Mullum-nimbyites, ta-ta to Byron-tourist-dollarmites. Enjoy the sterilised nest you have feathered! Merran Morgan

Tyagarah Q How

can anyone expect reasonably priced real estate in a completely corrupt market? How is an honest person supposed to get ahead? And if they can’t, how can law and public good conduct expect to find supporters? There is no shortage of people listing the ills of the NSW ALP, and the willingness of politicians to bend rules for mates and donors is legendary. The developer with the

most corrupt mates will win, because environmental, social and economic regulations will be flouted, ignored, overruled and avoided. Check Barangaroo, which has reeked from day one as the thieves have fallen over themselves to cut deals on public lands, to the community’s detriment. Which brings us back to Byron. We have regulations. We have rules. We have zonings. We have official tolerance of the flouting of those rules and regulations. Tourists in residential areas? We may as well just line residents up, demand money from them, and hand it over to the absentee landlords. This is problem number one. Councillors, and Don Page, fix this or fuck off. No excuses.

I feel compelled to respond to Sue Drummond’s letter and Fast Buck$’s article in last week’s Echo. The reason I feel I have a right to make the comments I do are twofold. First I have buried three of my own offspring; I have experienced the devastating impact that is child loss. Second, for my own reasons I sat through all ten days of Jai Morcom’s inquest and I have two books of extensive notes. In fact the only other ‘non-family or involved party’ to have attended the inquiry as fully as I did was The Echo reporter Eve Jeffery, whose reporting and commentary I read and found myself constantly nodding in agreement with. First I want to respond to Sue. Sue, I am sorry, but during the inquest I tragically saw nothing of what you complained of in your letter. The problem is that justice is not a thing, it is not a state of being, it is not an action; it is an abstract concept invented by human beings in an attempt to bring satisfaction to a plaintiff in the event of a crime or wrongdoing. Consequently being an abstract concept it is defined in many different ways. The most common definition of justice is when one person or several persons are held accountable and punished for the deed in question; when this happens people often feel they have had justice, but not always. Indeed sometimes we have to accept that someone may not be held accountable or punished for a wrongdoing and that can happen for a variety of reasons, benign or not. Deputy State Coroner Hugh Dillon went to considerable lengths before the proceedings to explain what a coronial in-

quest does and what it does not do. He pointed out the inquest had been convened to establish how Jai Morcom died and, if it was the result of an injury, how the injury came about. He went on to say that, if, after the presentation of the evidence it is apparent that a serious offence has been committed, by person or persons, the investigation is continuous and ongoing and steps will be taken. Over the next ten days I saw an array of legal counsel who indeed represented certain people’s interest. The teachers, two of whom were on their first jobs and were severely traumatised by the event, have the right to be represented and their actions not vilified with-

was unequivocally accepted by all parties was the fantastic character that was Jai. Regarding the boy who admitted holding Jai against the wall, yes he did, he was honest and he was brave to admit it, but it was quite clear from the medical evidence that that was not the action that brought on the grade five basal sub-arachnoid haemorrhage that ended Jai’s life. He did not laud himself as a hero, he merely stated he was trying to break up the fight, a fact that had been corroborated across the board by the only seriously consistent piece of evidence from all previous witnesses. All the experts were unanimous in one fact: as soon as

I am not saying the legal system is perfect or that it has never been abused or its agenda hijacked, but in this situation, as a witness to the process, I found I was satisfied that it was very thorough. Everything was gathered together, studied, referenced and cross-referenced. out good reason, do they not? The same goes for the ‘persons of interest’ who are of course innocent till proven guilty, are they not? And indeed the same goes for Jai Morcom: of course he has the right to representation, and he was represented by his father Steve Drummond. Steve did a sterling job representing the tragic interests of his son. One testimonial piece of evidence that was utterly consistent and unrelenting was the one that described the kind, thoughtful, loving and spiritual nature of Jai. I heard things said of Jai that if they were said of me across ten lifetimes I would be a happy man. The one thing that

the café solicitor

the grade five basal sub-arachnoid haemorrhage happened Jai had seconds before collapse and sliding into unconsciousness. This places any fatal blow to him in a very narrow timeframe, and this could not be verified by any witness. I found that over the course of the inquest it was indeed satisfactorily shown that these boys were definitely in ‘groups’ not ‘gangs’. I think most people would accept that gangs tend to be a collection of people with an insidious agenda at the core of their gathering and activities. Groups are generally people who gather with a common interest, and one that is more often than not simply social. Over the ten days of evidence it was quite clear to everyone in the court that these boys were in ‘groups’. This altercation took place and involved around eight people at the core, with 30 onlookers. It exploded at great speed and was over 60 seconds later. This was an irrational event in a rational situation; no-one booked a seat to watch, no one arrived at the time advertised to see the fight; it was not predicted nor scheduled, it was not planned as part of the insidious

agenda of a ‘gang’. Those who have witnessed a pub fight, a car crash, an old lady falling over in the supermarket, will know what a feeble mechanism the memory recall system is. The brain suddenly grabs fragments of images and commits them to memory. However in the recall process it often places them together, with major errors of geography and sequence, at times even artificially filling in the gaps. In this inquest there are other lives and reputations at stake and we as a democracy do not sacrifice one for the perceived justice of another. I am not saying the legal system is perfect or that it has never been abused or its agenda hijacked, but in this situation, as a witness to the process, I found I was satisfied that it was very thorough. Eighteen months of investigation, several medical experts asked to investigate and present evidence. Eyewitness evidence collected no matter how seemingly minor. Everything was gathered together, studied, referenced and cross-referenced: hundreds if not thousands of hours of work by highly qualified people. Ten days of presentation in a coroners court, a large amount of taxpayers’ money and resources was rightly brought to bear on a tragic event in order to seek out what happened and how it happened. I found the integrity and humanity of Deputy State Coroner Hugh Dillon and his assistant Michael Wigney total and absolute. The finding was open, so if someone comes forward with fresh evidence throwing new light on the event, the process continues. I appreciate the current findings are painfully inadequate for the Drummond and Morcom families but it is in fact justice, because it is the entire process that is the justice. We the democratic society care enough about each other to make available time, energy, money and resources to pursue and present this process to everyone. There are many countries where this does not happen. NOTE: Thank you to everyone for their interest in this issue. This correspondence is now closed. – Ed

Going punk Beijing style

Our green energy options Mark Byrne

Next year is the twentieth anniversary of the 1992 Earth Summit. That landmark global environmental conference gave us the Rio Declaration, which laid out a series of principles to guide sustainable development. It also gave us the UN Framework Convention on Climate Change, which led to the 1997 Kyoto Protocol. Events since 1992 suggest that neither the Rio Declaration nor the Kyoto Protocol has been very effective in progressing global sustainability or reducing greenhouse emissions. The average amount of productive land available to each of us has halved from four to two hectares over the last 50 years, and Australians are currently using about four times that amount. If everyone lived like us, we’d need four planet Earths to supply our ‘needs’. And despite the Kyoto Protocol, global emissions are not only increasing, but are doing so at an increasing rate. In Australia, federal government data shows that emissions in the energy sector are up by nearly 50 per cent since 1990.

Green economy That’s not the UN’s fault. It keeps trying. Next year it’s back to Rio for another global conference. In preparation, last week the UN Environment Program released a landmark study called Towards a Green Economy. Its main finding is that ‘investing just two per cent of global GDP into ten key sectors can kick-start a transition towards a low-carbon, resource-efficient economy’. Those sectors are agriculture, buildings, energy, fisheries, forests, manufacturing, tourism, transport, water and waste management. According to the UNEP report, that two per cent investment will actually produce

more economic growth than a business-as-usual scenario within five to ten years. Best of all, that money doesn’t have to come from higher taxes. It could come from removing so-called ‘perverse subsidies’ such as tax breaks to fossil fuel industries that make it harder for renewables to compete. Right on cue, last week the Australian Conservation Foundation released a new analysis showing that ‘the Australian Government spends $11 billion more on subsidies that encourage greenhouse pollution than it does on programs to tackle climate change’. Among the chief culprits are fuel tax rebates costing $5 billion and the fringe benefits tax concession for company cars, which rewards drivers the more they drive at a cost to the public purse of over $1 billion per year.

Clean jobs Last week the Climate Institute also pitched in to the green economy push with new research which highlighted the clean energy jobs that could be created in regional Australia. It says that ‘with strong and decisive climate change and pollution policies, including a price-tag on pollution, close to 32,000 clean energy jobs could be created in Australia by 2030’. This would involve additional clean energy capacity of about 24,000 MW,

which is equivalent to around 24 baseload coal-fired power stations. The Climate Institute research is presented in interactive mapping that breaks the figures down region by region. But guess what – nothing for the NSW north coast! It’s understandable that we are not one of the NSW government’s renewable energy precincts, because these are intended to promote new wind farms, and it’s not very windy on the coast compared to up on the Great Dividing Range. But the Climate Institute research also covers rooftop and large scale solar, geothermal, hydro and bioenergy.

Left behind? Are we destined to be left behind in the transition to a green economy, becoming a brown economy backwater? The north coast might not be the best place in Australia for wind, geothermal or large scale solar power, but we have had the largest uptake of rooftop solar in NSW. There are already two large cogeneration plants at the Broadwater and Condong sugarmills, creating electricity from cane trash. And there may be much more potential for bioenergy (and biofuels) and wave and current energy to reduce our dependence on fossil fuels and grow the regional economy. These renewable energy options will be discussed at this year’s North Coast Energy Forum, which will be held in Mullumbimby on Friday June 4 – the day before World Environment Day. More on the forum later.

Punk is exploding in the most unlikely of places – the underground scene of Beijing, China. With a small but growing following, Beijing punk music is as rebellious and raw as that of its Johnny Rotten forefathers. In a country fast becoming the factory of the world, China has gone mad about capitalism. But not everyone is working 12-hour days seven days a week. Most definitely not Leijin and his band members. A skinhead punk rocker and founder of the band called Misandao (a Chinese word for sweet cream puff), Leijin is big, tough and tattooed. He is also very intelligent and media savvy. For him and the few dozen punks like him, scraping a living from this art form is all about having real freedom. Writing lyrics in both English and Chinese, the punks of Beijing seem free to innovate and make their own version of a revolt that is more than just music and mohawks; it is a statement on the culture at large. They bellow out themes like disgust with waste, police brutality, wasted lives, pointless government slogans and the bureaucratic machine. Most of all, they are animated with the raw energy and desperate vehemence that

comes with fear and daring. Though not against the law, it is anything but socially acceptable to be a punk in China. Set this against the backdrop of extraordinary state control and you have an environment that is ripe for outrageous rebellion where stakes are as high for the bands as they are for their followers. In a country where the internet and YouTube are still being blocked, flaunting freedom and outrage in public spaces is hugely seductive. It is this flagrant disrespect for the old, staid and conformist that is stoking the desires of China’s youngest generations. Which can also get them arrested. Australian filmmaker Shaun Jefford was inspired by such defiance. Drawn in by Leijin’s guts and charisma and the sizzling energy of punks

and skins like him, Jefford has captured Beijing’s brazen version of an underground revolution that runs directly counter to the mass culture and the deeply felt restraints of an aged communist regime. Jefford’s small crew managed to follow this group of punks and skinheads through what seemed like a war zone on the outskirts of Beijing during the China Olympics – when all eyes were on Beijing. Beijing Punk takes you into the hidden world of rebels and misfits just a scratch under the surface of modern China. Filmmaker Shaun Jefford will be at this 2pm screening at the Byron Bay Community Centre on Saturday March 12. See more of the Byron Bay Film Festival program at www. bbff.com.au.

Rethinking greywater

Bucolic Michael McDonald

Geoff Dawe

In about 1996 a lady signing herself Sunflower wrote a letter to the editor of this paper saying that she wanted to live simply in a teepee but Council would not allow it on the basis of greywater (kitchen, bathroom and laundry wastewater), and presumably blackwater (toilet waste). A host of letters were written in support of her wish to live more simply. Since that time the issue of alternative grey and black water has never been sufficiently resolved. The issue is important because if minimalist structures are legalised, there is an obvious solution to affordable housing – perhaps not everyone’s cup of tea, but even if there are just five people in Australia, the obstacles need to be moved aside. There is only one path to ecological sustainability and that is to live more simply. Greywater needs to be reexamined in rural areas from the point of view of allowing flexible piping for dilution, and to emit greywater straight to soil. There are considered to be three vectors of potential contamination of the environment from greywater that currently prevent greywater release straight to soil. Firstly, the possibility of chemical contamination. This has validity but only because greywater products such as detergents, toothpastes and soaps are potentially toxic. If they were organic the problem would not occur. One can see the injustice of the extensive greywater apparatus required for neutralising toxic products as a cost on the consumer who has to pay for the pollution of the producer. Secondly, there is concern that rats will build up from food particles from the kitchen sink. Rats come and go in rural areas, and they more often go when there is remnant native forest nearby as harbours for carpet snakes and owls. Rat problems, as macadamia farmers know, are linked to scarcity of native vegetation.

Total Catchment Management needs to be resurrected, but commonsense needs to prevail too on the length of a potential kitchen greywater pipe away from the house. There needs to be movement onward also from the 14th century Black Death ideas of rats. Rats are like any other mammal, and engage like flies in cleaning up putrid sites often caused by humans. Rats do not become harbingers of death unless humans insist on ignoring the stink of putrid sites by, for example, using snuff as we did in the 19th century, rather than removing or moving away from the source of the smell. The third potential for contamination of the environment is the possibility of faecal matter in underpants coming from the laundry greywater pipe. Education fixes that. You do not use the laundry pipe to water lettuces, you use it on bananas instead. In regard to blackwater, I am unable to get a written reply from the Environmental Health Officer for the Lismore office for ‘the scientific evidence of harmfulness of the burying of faecal matter in topsoil’. (Letter from myself, 23/4/09.) It could be assumed there is no problem burying faecal matter provided it is a reasonable distance from water courses or habitation and it is buried so that large animal life cannot dig it up. A built toilet need not be a requirement in rural areas. The Black Death has held humanity in an unbalanced view that household excretions are waste, rather than a

major resource; the major resource absented from the return of carbon to soil. Locking turds away in built containers has arguably done nothing to improve human health. Leading raw food exponent David Wolfe, who recently visited this shire, has said ‘... America went from the healthiest nation in the world in 1900, out of 100 surveyed, to dead last in 1990.’ One wonders whether departments of public health have concern for diet as a major cause for the increasing lack of health in Western nations, and whether they see this as the current primary vector of disease, rather than transmission by bacteria and virus. The movement to live more simply, epitomised by Sunflower’s plea, is supported by emerging knowledge that there is doubt about the validity of a human diet comprising processed grains, meat, dairy products and even cooked food. The doubt appears to be coalescing around a healthier diet for humanity of dark leafy greens, fruit, nuts and seeds. There is every possibility that those foods can be grown by small-scale gardening agriculture with mostly human energy rather than oil, and with diversity of farm produce to balance insect attack/share. The use of grey and black water are not disconnected from affordable housing, and both of these are not disconnected from sustainable agriculture.

The chickens love mowing. Imaginatively named Whitey, Goldy and Speckle, they follow the mower around, and sometimes get in its path, snapping up comestibles – grasshoppers, skinks, nameless beetles. Days later they will return to the scene of the carnage, raking through the blades of grass for leftovers. Having a lawn is the ultimate act of denial in the subtropics. It suggests the damp, fecund jungle might be held out. But look to Angkor Wat – the fig trees ravage the faces of the great and powerful. Even so, a space of lawn lets in light to the house, it provides a view to the dam, it keeps the chickens in tidbits. And the swamp hens bring out their young, black fuzzy balls on stilts, to graze. More than that, the clip-

pings can be used in making a hot compost, layered with the brown leaves raked from the neighbour’s road, again with the assistance of the chickens, the Pointer Sisters. (‘Tidbit’ – a small piece of tasty food, or, a small and particularly interesting item of gossip or information. Origin mid 17th century, ‘tid’ meaning tender. ‘Bucolic’ – relating to the pleasant aspects of country life. From the Greek boukolos ‘herdsman’, from bous, ‘ox’. This is likely to be the only mention of oxen unless at a later date we get round to historical references to bullockies crossing the Brunswick.) Once you have mowed the

lawn and disturbed the peace of your neighbours, even if the sky has been clear and hot days in a row, it rains. Watch the grass grow. Remember the lessons of Angkor Wat. Still, the rain brings relief from the stifling summer heat and the cool breeze ruffles my number-three haircut. Some revel in the heat – bring it on, they say – but I retreat to a dark corner and think about a cool verdelho or a glass of sparkling mineral water tinted with lime juice and bitters. Less bucolically, we had to drag a decomposing brushtail possum out from under the house. It had attempted sleeping in the chickens’ laying box a few times, much to the Pointer Sisters’ dismay, but eventually settled for under the house. Its last days accounted for a few of our bananas and figs and nature accounted for the possum in no time at all with its very efficient composting system. – mcduck@echo.net.au

Jasmine House Cosmetic Laser Clinic – Byron Bay

So you want to look younger? At Byron Bay’s Jasmine House Cosmetic Laser Clinic we use specialised medical infra-red techniques to repair damaged collagen beneath the skin’s surface. This is almost like ironing out wrinkles, and tightens sagging skin – without downtime. Even under a microscope, the treated areas look younger and less damaged, so the results are natural looking and last many years. Infra-red treatment is not a camouflage procedure like muscle-relaxant injections or fillers. Infra-red actually repairs damaged skin, and the results are impressive.

Tsonga is an African tribe believed to be the first to hand-stitch leather in the art of making shoes. What makes us different? Utilising the African women’s handcraft, our shoe uppers are handstitched to the sole, which eliminates harmful toxic adhesives. This process is called the ‘thread of hope’. Tsonga has also set up a trust for the ladies who make our shoes. This supports education, food and medical assistance within their community. These ladies on average earn 150 per cent more than the minimum wage in South Africa.

NANO

RHYTHMS MAG LAUDS RISING CHILEAN SUPERSTAR NANO STERN AS â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;ONE OF THE MOST IN-DEMAND INTERNATIONAL ARTISTS ON THE DOMESTIC SCENEâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;, AND ONCE YOUâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;VE SAT 10 MINUTES IN HIS SHOW, YOU KNOW WHY. BLENDING LATIN AMERICAN AND EUROPEAN FOLK MUSIC WITH MODERN ROCK AND JAZZ, THIS LONG-HAIRED LOUT IS SOMETHING OF A GENIUS. NANO CATCHES UP WITH SEVEN...

Nano, you have been on nearly every festival program Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve been to in the past few years. How important are festivals for you and broadening your audience? They are essential, as they allow musicians to connect with broader audiences which donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t necessarily know anything yet about them or their music. What do they offer that you donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t get in a straight gig? Apart from the fact that they allow you to come across to a wide and varied audience, they provide a whole atmosphere that is completely different from the city vibe. A friend and fellow musician once said that heaven is made of an endless row of Sunday afternoons at music festivals â&#x20AC;Ś And I think heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s quite right. Everyone seems to fall into a different state: hearts open, smiles abound and music flows everywhere. Do you ever get homesick? Or has the stage become your home? Not really homesick; I have definitely learned to make music my home. I do get exhausted at times, but people give such an energy back that itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s possible to keep on going for much longer than you would imagine, way past your own energetic possibilities. What is the essence of your journey as a musician? An endless quest that leads me to unexpected and unknown places. An exploration of the unlimited richness of tradition and the infinite possibilities of creation.

E N T E R T A I N M E N T How do you define those moments that you connect with an audience? Do they take you to another level in your playing? It takes me to another level not only in my playing but in my living. It feels in many ways like making love. Has the guitar become your voice? Even at your skill level do you still keep finding new places and new ways to tell a story? I am a student above all, always trying to learn new things by staying alert and open. The guitar, such an amazing invention, allows for a whole lifetime of exploration. The term ‘world music’ is often used to describe your work. Do you think that it’s too broad? How would you describe your style or genre? I definitely think ‘world music’ is a very wrong and arrogant term. It often stands for ‘anything that’s not in English’. I wouldn’t want to describe my own music. On your creative path, who has most influenced you? The thousands of teachers I have found along the ways of life. It would be very unfair to name a few. What is the decision you are most thankful for? My mother became very ill while she was pregnant with me, and the obvious thing would have been to have a therapeutic abortion, but she decided to risk her own life in order to give me mine. What decision do you most regret? So far, so good … If you could collaborate with any artist you wished, who would it be and why? Hmmm, fantasies abound. Probably Joni Mitchell, whom I admire immensely. You are working on a new album. Tell me a little of where it’s going. I’m currently enjoying a great flow of creative energy. And the album itself talks about flow above anything else. Unlike my previous studio albums, it will be recorded all at once, without any kind of dubbing or studio magic. I’m very excited and looking forward to the day we start recording it. What should we expect for your next Mullumbimby show? It will be very exciting, the first show of the tour, a kind of premiere with all the energy that such a night involves. Also, we will be releasing my new album, Nano Stern – Live in Concert, which was recorded at that very same hall some months ago. Expect nothing but a fully motivated band with a strong mission to make you feel, laugh, cry, dance and travel to places afar. Thursday 8pm at the Mullumbimby Civic Hall. $20 pre sale or $25 at the door. www.mullummusic.com.

soAP boX Mandy Nolan

WHY I AM AWSOME Yesterday I had to update my bio. I checked my website and I realised that it’s one husband and two kids behind. For those of you not in the entertainment world, a bio is our form of a Curriculum Vitae - but rather than an objective document listing dates, employers and on the job duties, a bio is a one-page narrative which embellishes both your ability and your credibility. Bios are nauseating. According to my bio I’m fricking amazing. Honestly, a girl with my kind of talent could milk the moon and have it churned for butter by morning, just in time for the lunchbox duties. I’m just that good. That’s why I’m living in a rented house in Mullumbimby with a chicken-wire fence. I detest writing these accolades about myself. Not only does it seem frightfully insincere, personally I wouldn’t be caught dead in the vicinity of such a right royal wanker like the dickhead I describe in my bio. For a start she has the habit of speaking of herself in the third person. ‘Mandy Nolan is a Renaissance woman.’ Yes actually, she is. She’s as fat as one. And then there’s the incessant, obligatory namedropping that is customary in all artist bios. It’s based on the theory that if someone more famous than you allows you within their viciniity, or if you warm the stage for them, then basically you must be pretty awesome. The rule is to choose the most impressive names out of your name-dropping bag. I always use the ‘In her early career she worked alongside internationally acclaimed celebrities such as Whoopi Goldberg and Eartha Kit.’ Now this is completely true. When I say ‘worked alongside’ I don’t mean that I joined Ertha for a rousing duet of My Heart Belongs to Daddy. What it means is that I did the warmup act. That’s the twenty-minute act that you’ve never heard of before you get to see the act you actually came to see. It’s easy for me to name-drop, because on a national level I’ve always been that act. When interviewers read my bio they What about how your perceive your own musical journey? Do accolades make it more risky to push into new musical territory, or do they in fact give you the licence to do exactly that? I think success is very empowering. It makes me even more willing to push myself and take some risks.

Bluesfest Legend! MULTI-GRAMMY-WINNING R&B ARTIST JOHN LEGEND WILL BE ARRIVING IN AUSTRALIA WITH HIS TEN-PIECE BAND IN TOW TO PLAY THE BYRON BLUES FESTIVAL THIS YEAR. SEVEN HAD A CHAT WITH MR LEGEND ABOUT HIS FORTHCOMING AUSTRALIAN SHOWS.

How important have musical collaborations been to you, and who are the collaborative artists that have most influenced your work? Collaboration is such a critical part of making great music. Of course there are the high-profile collaborations with people like Kanye, Jay-Z or the Roots, but it’s also important to have great band members, co-writers, engineers, etc. All of it matters. I think Kanye’s had the biggest influence on my career.  He signed me to his label in 2003 and helped me get my deal with Columbia Records. He’s had a part in all my albums with the exception of Wake Up! And we’re back in the studio together now, working on my next solo album.

always pick up on the Whoopi Goldberg line. And it’s true. I did support Whoopi Goldberg at her Canberra show in about 1991. The Canberra Theatre Centre was packed – probably 5,000 or more punters. At the time equity laws dictated that all overseas acts needed to be supported by Australian talent. Ms Goldberg stipulated that no act was to perform on the stage before her. Big talent has big egos. All that on-stage humility, is very much an act. The truth is, no one wants some pissy little unknown getting more laughs then them. (Although at that stage of my career Ms Goldberg was facing a risk-free situation.) But that night I had to perform in the foyer. For half an hour. People didn’t think I was funny, they thought I had a mental health issue. I just randomly went up to people while they were mingling and tried to break in on their conversation with some lame gag. I was what is known in the entertainment industry as a ‘sad loser’. That performance would be one of the low points of my career. It was completely humiliating. But I keep it in my bio. Why? Because I get to drop a Whoopi. I’m a comedian. Wouldn’t it make sense to just drop the whole hard sell on myself and tell the truth? ‘Mandy Nolan reached her peak about five years ago. But basically she’s bred herself into the corner, so she stays in the Byron Shire where she keeps torturing locals with the same ten gags. High levels of pot consumption have ensured a general short-term memory loss in most of her audiences, who seem to think she’s saying something new.’ Or what about, ‘Mandy is a bit of a stupid bitch. Opinionated, selfinterested and intolerant of fit people, Mandy is fast becoming one of those women who resent other women who haven’t let themselves go.’ In the meantime, before you judge me, I just want to remind you that I have ‘worked alongside’ Bono (I was next to him at an internet café in Sydney last year) and I once had sex with someone who had sex with Stevie Nicks. Oh, I am so putting that in my bio. It’s awesome! song is going. It’s a blueprint for finishing the song. Where do you source your lyrics? Is it your stories, other people’s? Movies? Poetry? Love? All of the above. Why are the bests songs always about heartbreak and disillusion? I think people respond to tension and confusion and pain. Songs about those feelings have a lot of emotional power.  What would you say is your best song (or is it unfair to make you pick favourites)? Tell me why. Some of my favourites are Ordinary People, Again and This Time. Is this your first time in Australia? I was there twice in 2005, but I haven’t been back since. I’m so glad we’re finally coming back. It’s been too long.  What should we be expecting for your Bluesfest show? I’ll be playing songs from all of my albums and we’ll have a fun, energetic show. I’m looking forward to it!

Sometimes there’s only a bridge between a good song and a great song. How do you close that gap? I don’t know. You just keep trying until you feel like it’s something beautiful. Sometimes, you just have to scrap it because it’s not gonna get there. But other times, making subtle tweaks can take it from good to great.

How do you start writing a song? I usually start by coming up with a basic lyrical concept or musical hook upon which to base the entire song. Then I compose the chord structure and vocal melody, John, does winning a Grammy change the way the world then the main body of the lyrics comes last. When composing the perceives you and your music? It certainly doesn’t hurt. I think vocal melody, I usually record my ideas as a ‘mumble track’ where I winning three Grammys for my debut album Get Lifted was mumble a melody with little or no intelligible lyrics just to establish especially important. When you’re a new artist and you win highthe basic tune and rhythm that will guide me in writing the actual profile Grammys like Best New Artist, it means a lot of people will say, ‘Who is this guy?’ and might want to buy the album to see what lyrics.  Do you have a feel for the whole thing, or does it evolve? Once the fuss is about. For instance, I’m sure Esperanza Spalding’s sales I come up with the chord structure and the vocal melody, I can will go up dramatically this week. Even for established artists like me and the Roots, I think the Grammys for Wake Up! will increase basically tell what the song is going to feel like when it’s done. It awareness about the album, and that’s a great thing. does evolve, but starting with those basics lets you know where the

Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a diverse range of personality, experience and ideas, and itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s reflected clearly in their music. Rokeby Venusâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s genre can be difficult to identify. The sound can be bouncy and fun, but also slower and dramatic. Mick Danbyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s vocals lead smooth guitar and bass to a very polished and attractive sound. The band simply create the music they love to perform. Catch them for yourself at the Hotel Great Northern on Friday.

The Byron Bay International Film Festival screening is to be only its second, and its most important, Australian screening. The documentary A Little Bit Mongolian features Angus Paradice, a twelve-year-old Australian boy from Scone in Northern New South Wales, who dares to be the first foreign boy ever to race in Mongolia’s longdistance children’s horse races. Each year several children die from injuries sustained in these races. A Little Bit Mongolian was awarded best film on Mountain Culture at the International Mountain Film Festival in Banff, Canada. After numerous other international awards it was chosen to open the International Mountain Film Festival in Kathmandu, Nepal last December, and is about to feature in public screenings all over Nepal. Angus Paradice, the subject of this film, was made Australian Geographic Young Adventurer of the year in recognition of his Mongolian exploit. Now 14 and studying at Scone Grammar School, he fears he may not be allowed off school in order to attend. A Little Bit Mongolian will be represented by its Cameraman/ Director/Producer Michael Dillon at The Byron Bay International Film Festival. Screens Wednesday 12.30pm.

Helen Luna designs and creates jewellery from funky everyday pieces to bespoke one-of-a-kind creations, selling through galleries around Australia and locally at Hammer & Hand and Retrospect. We took the opportunity to ask Helen a few questions. Why jewellery? I love the whole process of making jewellery and working with metals. For me it is a perfect mix of creativity and hands-on making. The scale of jewellery makes it very intimate; it is art you can carry with you. How did you learn to make jewellery? After doing a general design course at Kingscliff I moved to Melbourne

for a couple of years to complete an Advanced Diploma in Jewellery Design and Metalsmithing. What inspires your work? I love organic textures and translating those into hard metals and experimenting with new forms and textures. Inspiration can come from anywhere, but mostly it comes back to nature. What are you working on now? I am making some engagement and wedding rings. It is very special working with a couple to create this symbol of their joining they will be carrying with them every day for the rest of their lives.

<echowebsection=Entertainment>

Where do you work? I work mainly from my studio at home, but on Fridays I am at Hammer & Hand Jewellery & Metal Collective in the Byron Bay Arts and Industry Estate where people can come and see me and a range of my work. www.helenluna.com.au

Last week’s solution

Mungo’s Crossword first published in The Week.

endless forgiveness, and it’s true that if time hasn’t healed certain wounds, forgiveness will. So keep your heart open to this week’s beneficial medicine, which suggests making peace with estranged friends, family members or past traumas. F TAURUS: Your stars suggest it’s time to change your mind about something, someone or perhaps your own capacities. Be inspired by Tauran Hawaiian legend Israel Kamakawiwo’ole: Sometimes in life think No Can, but CAN! Though not alone, because sharing resources is the key to this week’s success. G G EMINI: This week’s celestial cocktail tests your flexibility levels and sensitivity ratings, because with gigabytes of exhilarating ideas downloading simultaneously you’ll be impatient with slowcoaches. But you might still want to consider modifying certain flip opinions that could alienate those influential new contacts you’re making. H CANCER: Astrologer Rob Brezny, spokesperson for Prevention Of Cruelty To Crabs, once suggested minimising suffering while undergoing change – advice which applies this week if you’re tempted to hit the couch with a ton of comfort food. Yes, life’s like a tsunami right now, but the potential’s monumental. I LEO: Right now teamwork’s a ticklish business requiring a tricky dance between honesty and tact. You’re gushing with inspiration, but put your inner editor on the job so you’re not taken the wrong way by this week’s sensitives, because then you’ll be expected to kiss it better. J  VIRGO: With present conditions unstable and subject to flux anyone’s behaviour can be unpredictable, even yours. What seems right today mightn’t be tomorrow, and we’re all trying to skate on thin ice as best we can. Avoid emotional fallout this week by easing up, especially on yourself. K LIBRA: Experiencing too much interference from other

CHESS by Ian Rogers

The mysterious Lara Stock

Holidaying players from Europe and the US have featured frequently in Australian and New Zealand tournaments, but some of these visitors will now be looked on with suspicion after the adventures of Lara Stock, Tournament Raider. In 2001 Stock was one of the most promising young nine-yearolds in Germany but, after complaints against her father Michael’s behaviour at the World Age Championships that year, a dispute broke out between the Stocks and the German Chess Federation which eventually required legal mediation.

Despite playing oddly up-anddown chess, Lara won the tournament with a perfect score; her father finished clear second. Both collected the advertised prizemoney. Not surprisingly, now that the deception has been unveiled, many in New Zealand are fuming. What may have seemed like a jolly jape has fallen flat and demands are being made that the Stocks, at the very least, donate their prize money to the Christchurch disaster fund. However, a confrontation with the New Zealand chess authorities may not be far off. The Stocks have entered a tournament in Auckland this weekend, at first under their false names but later, upon the insistence of the organiser, in the highest division as the Stocks. If they decide to show their faces, sparks may fly…

peoples’ emotional stuff? Not what an air sign likes at all. But this week’s changeable nature means arrangements are likely to fluctuate so practice the flexibility tango and set your satnav to Libra’s March focus, which is on health improvement. L SCORPIO: This week could well jump-start you out of the comfort zone into surprising revelations, unscheduled breakthroughs and unconventional directions. Should this not happen and all you’re feeling is restless frustration, then be assured that you’re definitely on the path, an artwork in progress… M  SAGITTARIUS: This week’s supercharged with interesting visitors, unusual invitations and unexpected pleasures, but also a caution concerning the extra care necessary when travelling. Present astral emphasis on family matters and your domestic sector is winding up an expired cycle so that a new one can begin. N CAPRICORN: Education, information and communication head the present Capricorn agenda, though don’t expect direct questions to get straightforward answers in this evasive week’s confusing ambiguity. Yes it’s annoying, aggravating and downright infuriating, so boost your psychic stress resistance with lots of whatever makes you feel good. O AQUARIUS: As this week tugs you out of your head and into your feelings, planetary attractor Venus in Aquarius opens your popularity portal to excellent chemistry and plenty of affectionate attention. You’ll be buzzing with all sorts of inspired insights, but discretion’s recommended in expressing them. P P ISCES: This sprightly, spunky week doesn’t pull any punches. Sure it’s a bit crass and a trifle brash, but it’s also pumped with divine madness and outrageous grace suggesting that an image upgrade would make the most auspicious start towards looking like your future successful self.

The Adjustment Bureau

In the past twelve months you’ve not been able to swing a cat without hitting either Matt Damon or Emily Blunt, so I suppose it was inevitable that they would eventually turn up on screen together. And, as it happens, fate is the theme of George Nolfi’s daft but beguiling intrigue. Two slick minutes is all we need to get the lowdown on Brooklyn’s David Norris (Damon), whose combustible nature has pulled the rug from under his Senate candidacy. He meets dancer Elise (Blunt) in the men’s lavatory of a posh hotel and, overcome by the atmospherics of the cubicles and urinal,

they fall into a passionate embrace. But their pairing is not as things are meant to be, which is the crux of the matter, for it has been written by the unseen Chairman (God) that their lives must adhere to a non-negotiable scheme and follow paths that have been assigned to them since birth. Agents of the Chairman are sent to counter the couple’s self-determination, but David objects to their interference, resulting in his being pursued all over New York. At which point we enter Hollywood’s newest genre – the gamers’ film, exemplified by the nonsense of Inception. Doors open to surreal scenes as David and Elise flee destiny’s impersonal hand. Damon hasn’t had to

run so much since leading the Springboks to World Cup glory in Invictus, while the delectable Blunt has not been involved in anything quite so sillily plotted since the dreadful Wild Target. My immediate reaction was that this is okay if you like poppycock, but retrospection has encouraged me to feel more kindly towards it. For a start, I don’t recall a gun being fired, which is praiseworthy in itself and, despite the laborious spelling out of its raison d’etre, the movie grasps a philosophical question that is rarely asked in mainstream media. In doing so it strikes an encouraging blow against the medieval mindset that would deny our free will. ~ John Campbell

Hipsters As the Byron Bay International Film Festival has grown, so the bar for the quality of its entries has lifted. J’aimee Skippon-Volke, the Festival’s director, has snared an absolute treasure for this year’s program in Hipsters – and don’t for one minute be deterred by its Russian provenance. Nothing could be further from the gulags than Valery Todorovsky’s rapturous and unique musical comedy. It opens in Moscow, 1955. Stalin is dead but the dourness of Communism still holds sway and young ‘hipsters’ (bodgies with cocky-comb coifs who dress loudly and listen to contraband American music) are seen to be morally corrupt and treated as pariahs. Conformist Mels takes part in raiding a secret hipsters’ party but is won over to their cause when he falls head over heels for beautiful blonde Polza (Oksana Akinshina). Encouraged by the group’s charismatic leader, Fred (Maksin Makveev), he gets himself decked out in some flash clobber, takes up the saxophone and devotes himself to jazz. In the tradition of a fifties musical, there are song-anddance routines throughout, but the narrative’s momentum and its characters’ relationships are never subsumed by gratuitous frivolity. The balance between FULLY AIR-CONDITIONED

fun and social comment is perfectly struck, while the romance between Polza and the naïve Mel is the film’s steady beating heart. In less assured hands, the rabbit that Todorovsky pulls out of his hat to test his couple’s love might have been a stretch, but, well and truly seduced by that stage, I was happy to go with it. Performances are engaging and the pacing is fast without becoming frenetic, but the real star is Roman Vasyanov’s cinematography. Meticulously framed and vibrantly coloured (the costume designer clearly had a ball), it is a visual extravaganza, and the final shot of Mel and Polza storming triumphantly down one of St Petersburg’s snowy boulevardes surrounded by today’s Russian punks is genuinely uplifting. Hipsters is screening this weekend at the Community Centre. If you’re keen for something different, check it out. ~ John Campbell

is the Texas Ranger LaBoeuf (Matt Damon) and it is the interplay between the two squabbling men, both wanting to impress young Mattie, that provides moments of welcome levity – Damon’s Dudley Doright effort stops short of the farcical as the Coens refrain from besmirching the genre with their signature mockery. But that is not to say that they don’t find opportunities to exercise their bent for the surreal, with a bear on horseback appearing

I would hazard a guess and say that most camp followers of Joel and Ethan Coen, flexing their moral as well as aesthetic prejudices, would ordinarily not have a bar of cowboy movies. If they ignore this one, however, they will be cutting off their nose to spite their face, for it is fantastic. I’ve never grasped what it is that inspires such devotion in the Coens’ fans; their derisory view of humanity, admittedly the height of fashion, would leave me unmoved and feeling looked down upon. An inability or disinclination to attempt anything with warmth and compassion had established them (in my eyes) as stylists rather than artists (as for their Oscar-winning No Country … I endorse Stephanie Zacharek’s ‘brooding doesn’t necessarily equal depth’). Incorrigible showoffs, they were great filmmakers who might never make a great film. Now they have. The Western is basically all about the pursuit of personal justice – rough or otherwise – and, in reworking Henry Hathaway’s 1969  ‘modern classic’ (I’ve not seen it, so cannot comment), the boys have thankfully kept faith with that venerable tradition. Teenaged Mattie (Hailee Steinfeld) has witnessed her father gunned down by the outlaw Tom Chaney. Determined that justice be done, she hires reprobate Marshal Rooster Cogburn (Jeff Bridges in the role made famous by John Wayne) and, with her good horse Blackie, they enter the Indian lands of Oklahoma to find the killer. Joining them on Chaney’s trail

out of the mist and rattlesnakes inside a rotting corpse, or picturesque, but not gratuitous, violence – the sudden shooting in a cabin is stunning in its intensity and quickness. Art direction and costumes are done to a T, performances are faultless (Steinfeld is incredibly assured) and, threaded through it like a silk ribbon through a gunny sack, are Carter Burwell’s arrangements of the hymn ‘Leaning on the everlasting arms’. The melody works as a mnemonic, casting you into the familiar world of the cinematic West, while its powerful melancholy primes you for the emotional peak reached in the climactic scene’s heartbreaking gallop through the night. Don’t miss it. ~ John Campbell

The Big Business Of Food’s Past

BYRON BAY CONTINUED

Food and food preparation is undoubtedly big business in Australia today, and according to senior lecturer in history at Southern Cross University and Associate Fellow at the National Museum of Australia, Dr Adele Wessell, that current fascination is creating a surge in interest in our culinary heritage. ‘I’m a historian, with a background in cultural history, who is interested in food in terms of how it communicates and produces change. I actually think that you can use food to provide a means of understanding key historical transitions that define modern society, such as food production, religion, the body, science, power, the nation state, colonialism, gender, consumption, migration and memory,’ Dr Wessell said. ‘Much of this history had been neglected for several reasons: it’s ordinary and everyday; we’ve focused on visual texts to the exclusion of other senses like taste and smell; and it’s often women’s business and so until the development of feminist history and accompanying social change it was largely outside the scope of the history discipline. ‘The current interest in food and cooking, reflected in popular culture and television programs, has fed an interest in food heritage. A number of classic cookbooks have been reprinted in recent times such as the CWA Cookbook (republished 2009) and the Commonsense Cookery Book (republished 2008). ‘Food literature is important because through the story of our food we can explore indigenous cultures, colonialism, migration, war and so on. Some of those stories challenge our assumptions. Many people will be surprised for example, that many food identities turned to the US for models on

eating more fresh fruit and vegetables, right up to the middle of the 20th century. ‘The importance of food in political and civic movements has never been clearer and it is well documented that these movements are directly related to our culinary heritage. It is that history that I enjoy, finding out more about. Food shapes how we use the world not just as producers but consumers as well.’ March is women’s history month and Dr Wessell will be bringing the history of Australian women and the business of food to life. Dr Wessell will discuss the history of Flora Pell, the author of Our Cookery Book, along with Alison Wishart from the National Museum of Australia, at the State Library of Victoria on Thursday March 10 at 5.30pm. She will also feature in the Melbourne Food and Wine Festival ‘symposium and conversation dinner’ which will examine ‘Food Traditions and Culinary Cultures’ on Saturday March 12.

Tommyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s transformed The region has just notched up a fabulous new dining destination â&#x20AC;&#x201C; albeit in darkest Lismore. Ex-Utopia head chef Graeme Stockdale has taken the reins of Tommyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s in Molesworth Street and is offering up some seriously good food. What was formerly a nightclub has been dramatically transformed into a light-flooded and stylish courtyard dining room, where diners are offered a menu based on regional produce and ingredients sourced from between Casino and Byron Bay. To launch the venue, Graeme turned on a 30 Mile Dinner recently, a five-course degustation matched with South Australian Maxwell wines. Guests were treated to an exciting menu studded with Wardell cucumbers, Bexhill pancetta, Ballina prawns and Eltham greens, Bangalow duck and brie, Alstonville chicken and Billinudgel herbs. Graeme hopes to make these â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;locavoreâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; dinners a regular feature of Tommyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s.

The other awards were for their Gluten-Free Original Crispbread, their Fig & Pecan Byron Bay Cookies, their Passionfruit Butterbursts and their Citrus Lemon Butterbursts.

Echo chicks mix it with ring-ins Crankin’ what’s happening in the surf The first event of the Bundy Barefoot Bowls began last Friday evening at the Mullumbimby Bowls Club and competition was fierce as 14 local teams battled it out on the field of in-their-dreams. The all girl Echo squad was up for the fight as Jewels ‘Slipped a Bit’ Jarvie, Angela ‘It’s All all in the Angles’ Cornell and Eve ‘I Really Haven’t Got a Clue’ Jeffery fought hard to even keep the bowls (not the balls) on the turf. Pitted against the two Phils and Cyclone Tracy, the Echo

chicks really didn’t have a chance and it wasn’t until standing in the rain to hand in their score card that they heard from a small group, ‘On No! Next week we have to play Phil’, that the penny dropped that they had been hustled and all that talk about how the falling rain was a key factor in their downfall was just bluff to cover the tracks of the rings-ins. Vowing to hit the little white thingy with the ball thingy, the publishing company’s team have declared they will return next week, at least for the sau-

sage sizzle and a giggle. Results for the tournament were: Un-Co Operatives 12 D Mullum Bus-tards 2, Jobless 9 D No Cents, The Argyles 15 D Vet Mongrels 2, Chinny Store 10 D Plastered, Tavern Troopers 11 D Club Crew 8, Check-Out Chicks 13 D Easy Rollers and that no-good team of ring-ins the Can’t Nail Us Down crew on 14 managed to steal a win from under the nose of The Echo who managed an accidental 2. Stay tuned folks as The Echo’s golden girls look for more excuses.

State titles on this weekend Bruns rugby sends funds to QLD union brothers

The Byron Bay Junior Surf Life Saving Club is gearing up for a huge weekend of action at the New South Wales state Surf Life Saving titles. The titles will be held this weekend March 11, 12 and 13 in Kingscliff and the Byron club has a 60 strong team competing against other surf clubs from all over NSW. Fifteen hundred athletes ranging in age from seven to 14

years old will battle it out over the three-day carnival event in individual and team activites. With an estimated 8,000 people on the beach each day the atmosphere is sure to be buzzing. Byron Bay will be represented in the All Age Board Relay Final on Sunday. Byron had to qualify by winning the lead-up race at the recent Far North Coast Branch Titles.

So much aid and assistance is needed after the recent disasters in Australia and New Zealand that it is easy to begin to feel overwhelmed. But Australians are known for their generosity and can-do attitude. The sporting community is a good example. Just about every major sporting group got on board and ran flood and disaster assistance appeals in conjunction with their televised matches. One of our local clubs decided to do their part as well and Drew Bartlett, president of the Brunswick Valley Junior Rugby Union Club, came up with the idea to donate directly to Rugby Union clubs affected by the Queensland floods. With rugby season right around the corner, he wanted to be able to help youngsters get on with life and play the game they love. To this end, the Brunswick Valley Juniors have donated $1000 to Darling Downs Rugby Union with the money going directly to Condamine and Warwick Junior Rugby Union Clubs. Brunswick Valley Juniors were joined by Far North Coast Rugby Union and the Far North Coast Referees Association who both gave donations of $500. Cameron Donaldson, chairman of Downs Rugby Limited

in Toowoomba, couldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t be happier with the generous donations and is confident that the money will be put to good use. Drew and all the players at Brunswick Valley Juniors were just happy they could help out and make it easier for the boys in Queensland to train and compete this season. As for Brunswick Valley Juniors, the Billygoats are looking forward

to another strong season. The players are all itching to get onto the paddock and the club is still accepting new players between the ages of eight and seventeen.

tralia was experiencing a new low in affordability, with the proportion of income required to meet loan repayments increasing 5.8 percentage points to 34.8 per cent over the year – we expect this figure to show further decline. ‘Although just one component of the solution to housing affordability, lower interest rates are needed to reduce the

Real Estate Institute of Australia (REIA) President David Airey said the right decision was made on rates by the Reserve Bank, given the state of housing affordability in Australia. ‘The Reserve Bank has accurately assessed the state of the market and left rates on hold,’ said Mr Airey. ‘Last quarter, we reported that Aus-

The REIA will release its Deposit Power Housing Affordability Report this week.

Brighter start for new home sales in 2011 showed that the number of new homes sold increased by 2.5 per cent in January 2011.

home building sector was buffeted in 2010 by rising interest rates and a lack of policy reform to wind back the impact of the dead hand of regulation on new housing costs,’ Dr Dale said. ‘New dwelling starts are expected to be lower in 2011. However, the prospect of official interest rates holding for some time, signalled yesterday by the Reserve Bank, could help to mitigate the decline in new dwelling starts and slow further widening in Australia’s new housing shortage. ‘Following a protracted period of depressed building activity in New South Wales, there are early

indications that the industry could be lifting itself off the canvas.’ In January 2011 the HIA-JELD-WEN New Home Sales Report found that detached new house sales increased by 10.3 per cent in New South Wales, 9.6 per cent in Victoria, and 6.3 per cent in Western Australia. Sales fell by 2.6 per cent in Queensland, a result likely to have been influenced by the floods. Sales in South Australia continued their under-performance, falling by 6.3 per cent in January. Total detached house sales increased by 3.7 per cent over the three months to January 2011, but remained down by 9.8 per cent when compared to the three month period to January 2010.

News Extra

Transition Byron Shire endorses The Zero Carbon Australia Plan Last week, two of Transition Byron Shire organisers, Gabi Bohnet and Sapoty Brook, joined Beyond Zero Emissions (BZE) to become local presenters of the revolutionary Zero Carbon Australia (ZCA) plan to address the climate crisis. BZE is an independent, notfor-profit organisation working with expert volunteers from all over Australia to create the plan, which was published by the University of Melbourne. ‘I am concerned with food and energy security, sustainable transport and housing where our state and federal governments grossly fall behind,’ says Gabi Bohnet. ‘These are all issues that Transition Byron Shire is working on to promote climate

change solutions. When I heard the Zero Carbon Australia Plan presentation at the Woodford Folk Festival this year I learned that Australian engineers have worked out a detailed solution on how Australia can transition to a 100 per cent renewable energy by 2020.’ The first ZCA plan released late last year describes how we can supply Australia’s stationary energy needs with 100 per cent renewable energy within the next ten years. This is baseload renewable energy, supplied around the clock, 24 hours a day by the sun and wind. Recently, Dr Karl has been spruiking the ZCA plan on Seven’s Sunrise with Mel and Kochie. The Zero Carbon Australia

blueprint proposes powering Australia with proven wind and solar thermal technology. All proposed technologies are available right now and are being built in the United States and Spain, among others. Detailed studies into the resources and workforce needed and into the costing of this plan show that it can be implemented immediately. It will deliver renewable energy to our doorstep for $8 per household per week, according to its proponents. ‘Australians are the biggest per capita greenhouse emissions polluters and contributors to our climate crisis,’ says Sapoty Brook. ‘Taking a risk management approach towards climate change is the best way to tack-

le the issue. The Zero Carbon Australia project shows how we can fully decarbonise our economy. This way we can lead the world by demonstrating the best safeguard against environmental and economic risks threatened by climate change.’ The project has attracted over 100 volunteer engineers and scientists to produce and now promote this plan to the Australian public. ‘It is so inspiring to see that we, many concerned citizens of all different professional backgrounds, can bring about such a plan without any government or industry funding and without any lobby groups being involved,’ says Gabi Bohnet. ‘The implementation and success of this plan will now

Following on from our dead python photo last week, a reader rang in to say a fox could be the culprit, especially as there are no ‘worry’ marks on the snake. Another explanation could be a mad human. Whatever, our wild things are under a lot of pressure and one way you can help them is by undertaking the Northern Rivers Wildlife Carers’ annual Introduction to Rescue and Rehabilitation of Native Wildlife course on Sunday March 27 at Wollongbar for people 18 years and over. Call Jo after 9am on 6624 7778 or email jo_shep@yahoo.com for more information. QQQQ

Please mark your diaries as follows: the premiere is on Saturday, May 28, 7.30pm at the Byron Community Centre, and there will be a matinee at the same venue on Sunday, May 29 at 2pm. The Mullumbimby screenings are on Saturday, June 4, 6pm and 8.30pm at the Civic Hall. QQQQ

Imagine our surprise when we read the Byron Bay Film Festival ad in the Byron News last week and discovered that the major media sponsor – us – did not appear. A nice piece of Stalinist purging.
