Community garden for North Ocean Shores Story & photo Eve Jeffery

Writers’ festival shakeup Victoria Cosford

With the spring weather on the way the newly formed Shara Community Gardens in North Ocean Shores will soon be ready to start digging and planting and last Saturday hundreds gathered at the site for a blessing of the land and family picnic. Local artist Jacquelina Wills guided the construction of a central mandala, a focal point for the gathering’s good wishes and intentions. Many brought flowers and earthly decorations to add to the circle. With much singing and laughter the plot was blessed and the community enjoyed a picnic and Lions’ sausage sizzle. Many who came to visit the garden signed up as members of the group. The highlight of the celebrations for the kids was a performance by the Curly Cousins. Organisers were very happy that their first event was very successful which they see as a healthy sign that this project is welcome and supported by the community. In the coming weeks swales will be created on the steeper part of the land to improve water retention, and for planting fruit and nut trees. The site for a rotunda will be prepared so the team of generous local

Candida Baker has stepped down from her role as Byron Bay Writers’ Festival and Writers’ Centre Director after one year in the saddle. According to the Centre’s Chairman Chris Hanley, running both had become too big a job for one person and will now be split into two positions. He said that going back over the past ten years each of the Festival directors had told the committee that doing all the different jobs involved in running the Centre as well as the Festival was too much. ‘Candy put in great energy into what many are saying was the best Festival yet, but we’re being sensible and practical about all this,’ he told The Echo. ‘We’ve made the position of the whole shebang redundant and split it into two jobs. It will be best for us and best for the Writers Centre.’ Mr Hanley said that there were 200 events at the Writers’ Festival this Central to Saturday’s Shara Community Gardens blessing was an earth mandala which caught the imagination of year. ‘It was monstrous,’ he said. ‘It’s 9-year-old Oshanna from Mullumbimby. giant and we need to specialise.

Marine park inquiry now taking public submissions adding that no-fishing zones in fact act as a subsidy to those who fish, because they ultimately increase fish numbers. Mary Gardner is coordinating a science film festival this weekend in conjunction with the CSIRO, which will feature the award-winning David Suzuki film One Ocean, screening this Saturday night at the Byron Community Centre. Still relatively new compared to land-based national parks, marine parks and their sanctuary zones which prohibit fishing are the sites of much conflict. While some fishing groups are extremely keen to see the winding back of sanctuary zones,

local conservationists worry that current restrictions around important habitats like Julian Rocks may be watered down as a result of the inquiry now underway. Last week the state government announced the six-member panel which will run the inquiry, including people with expertise in fisheries, conservation, and social and economic assessments. It will be chaired by an academic ecologist, Associate Professor Bob Beeton from the University of Queensland. The inquiry is scheduled to open for public submissions this week and will close at the end of next month. More at

in marine parks might be strengthened rather than wound back. A statement released earlier this month by more than a hundred scientists revealed new parks in other parts of Australia are not being properly designed, and may be failing to conserve important habitats: ‘We have grave concerns about the lack of protection caused by these gaps in the proposed system of marine reserves,’ said the statement, coordinated by high-profile Queensland University Professor Hugh Possingham. Locally, marine biologist and writer Mary Gardner says, ‘If political compromise guts reserve design then any network of reserves is doomed to fail’,

The state government’s review of marine parks will start taking public submissions this week, as an award-winning film on the power and beauty of the oceans screens in Byron Bay. The government’s inquiry will examine the scientific evidence underpinning marine parks, which has been strongly attacked by fishing groups. Byron-based Ecofishers chief executive Ken Thurlow told The Echo earlier this year his group had pushed hard for the inquiry, which he predicted would lead to a reduction in the no-fishing zones within the Cape Byron marine park.

While environment and scientific groups have cautiously welcomed the government’s review, they’ve also expressed concerns about recent decisions to wind back protections at marine parks elsewhere in the state, and lift fishing restrictions in the habitat of the critically endangered Grey Nurse shark around South West Rocks. Globally, scientists are increasingly worried by the growing threat of extinction to many ocean species, including the grey nurse shark, and sanctuary zones within marine parks are being promoted as part of the solution. Nationally, senior scientists point to evidence suggesting protections with-

Hundreds came out on the weekend for their own piece of classical paradise as the Bangalow Music Festival celebrated a spectacular ten years. What is becoming known as an iconic fine music event, the festival hosted both international and local artists last weekend, showcasing a tenconcert program. Southern Cross Soloists, Paul Dean, Tania Frazer, Margaret Schindler, Peter Luff and Kevin Power were just a few of the many talented artists to grace the stage during the festival. Other guest artists were the Flinders Quartet, Melbourne Piano Trio, Sivan Silver and Gil Garburg and soloists Jack Liebeck, Marshall McGuire, Slava Grigoryan, Nick Earls and the Queensland Choir, to name just a few. From the likes of classic greats including Mozart,

Controversy has erupted once again at Basalt Court, Lennox Head, as workers began construction of an Optus mobile tower on top of the water reservoir. The Basalt Court site was the subject of a huge community protest in March this year, when residents were informed of Optus’s plans to build a sixantenna mobile relay station on top of the water tank. ‘We found out about the tower, and within three days we had a meeting in the park with 30 people,’ says resident Sue Hetherington, who went on to establish WHAAT – Worried Householders Action Against Tower.’ WHAAT lobbied Ballina Shire Council to oppose the

tower. A unanimous resolution championed by Greens Councillor Jeff Johnston was passed. It objected to the tower and recommended that Optus co-locate with Telstra’s existing facilities. Optus, however, informed Council of its intention to continue nonetheless. Council responded with a further unanimous resolution to take the matter to the Telecommunications Industry Ombudsman. (TIO) ‘TIO found nothing untoward about Optus’s conduct’ says Ballina Council officer John Truman. Council then took the matter to the Australian Media and Telecommunications Authority (ACMA). Residents believe that ACMA is still investigating, but according to Council and

Optus, ACMA has already decided the matter in Optus’ favour. ‘If that’s true, no-one has informed me,’ says Sue Hetherington. Apparently councillors are also being kept out of the loop. Council is still awaiting a response from ACMA regarding the classification of the facility as low impact,’ says Cr Johnston. It seems that the decision to hand over the keys to the site was also made without councillors’ involvement. ‘I’m shocked to hear that a Council staff member gave permission for Optus to enter the Council facility and commence work on the antennas given that the Council resolved unanimously that it did not approve of the site,’ says Cr Johnston. Meanwhile Optus insists that

it has gone above and beyond its legal requirements. ‘We do listen to the community,’ says Optus spokesperson Joshua Drayton. ‘Optus thoroughly investigated alternative sites, including co-location with Telstra facilities; however, the nearby Telstra tower is not suitable because it will not meet the local coverage objectives,’ he said, adding that Optus has downsized the Lennox array from six antennas to three.

Bangalow gets happy in big way

Story & photo Eve Jeffery

Well, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s official, Bangalow is the happiest town in Australia and anyone who watched Sunrise while they ate their Weeties last week will know it. The title win landed on Bangalowâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s doorstep after Eva Heath entered an online competition several weeks ago. â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Sunrise announced they were starting a Happy Town competition and in 100 words or less wanted to know why my town deserved to win the national title. So I did just that. I entered Bangalow in competition run by the Channel Seven breakfast show, then I forgot about it, not expecting anything to come from it.â&#x20AC;&#x2122; Eva says she was surprised when she got a phone call two weeks ago telling her the town had won and last week the Sunrise crew rolled into town. Bangalow showed off its best with a mini Billy Cart Derby, horses wandering down the main drag, a demonstration by the House of Dance, a cheer from the school kids, a waft

about how the planned changes might impact on their land. The new zonings are part of a Byron Shire draft Local Environment Plan, which is currently awaiting state government approval before it goes on public exhibition, scheduled for September or October. While it is unclear how long the plan will be on public exhibition, the period for feedback could be as short as one month. Bob Gray is not opposed to the idea of the environment zonings per se, but said it was â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;ironicâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; that farmers were apparently facing more red tape at a time large companies mining for coal-seam gas were â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;threatening the very life force that sustains usâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;, referring to the dangers to water supplies posed by fracking.

New Brighton dog lovers are happy with outcome of last Thursday’s Byron Shire Council meeting even though they didn’t get what they wanted. In a compromise that should see everyone satisfied, Council voted to put on public exhibition an adjustment of the New Brighton off-lead dog exercise area by way of reduction of the southward extent to 50m north of the Brunswick Heads Nature Reserve boundary and extending the northward extent approximately 700m to a line adjacent to Ocean Avenue, resulting in an off-lead exercise area of 1500m. Cr Ross Tucker said that he didn’t support a change to the current off-leash area and that BARCO needed to be a part of the consultation process. ‘I think the process broke down badly. I think Council needs to formally listen to BARCO’s point of view.’ He also said that he believes that Council had been called upon to do someone else’s work. ‘If the National Parks and Wildlife Service are having trouble with that nature reserve it’s up to them to solve

their problems. ‘I don’t think they should be coming to Council and saying, “We are having problems with the reserve so you start regulating your area next to the reserve”. If they are having trouble with compliance and they can’t enforce their regulations then it is something that their department should look after. ‘They should not be asking Council to restrict the public as to how they use the beach. People are complying on Council land and are entitled to walk their dogs on the beach. They

are breaking no regulations then they are being penalised. I just don’t see the sense in that. I don’t see the justice.’ Cr Basil Cameron said that the proposal being put forward will go on public exhibition, which will allow further discussion. ‘The bottom line is that this is about the protection of vulnerable and endangered species and that is the focus that we must have. ‘We as humans and dog owners have the option of adjusting our behaviour. We can go around. We can do it an-

other way. The birds and the critters do not have that option. We cannot say “Oh well, you move down there, go somewhere else”; it’s just not going to happen’. Cr Cameron went on to say that he felt this was the right balance. ‘We are making sure that the area that is inhabited by the birds is protected, but we are also making sure that the exercise area largely remains unchanged in terms of its distance.’ After the meeting BARCO president Geraldine Lockyer said that the group is very happy with the decision. ‘We are looking forward to working with NPWS, Byron Bird Buddies and Ballina Seabird Rescue, who approached us and are keen to work with us,’ she said. Elysia Walton who spoke as a dog walker on the beach said that this is a fair compromise. ‘BARCO is very pleased. We look forward to working with NPWS, BBB, Seabird Rescue and the Council compliance officers to ensure respect for residents and all other beach users – human or animal – is at the forefront of everybody’s minds.’


Last Thursday Council resolved to defer a decision on the proposed Sunrise pub and to have staff prepare a report based upon the additional conditions to the original plan. The new conditions were the removal of the bottle shop due to the proximity of residential areas already serviced by an alcohol outlet and the increased risk of access to alcohol by minors; and that no poker machines are to be permitted. The original plan did say that there would be no poker machines but councillors were concerned that an application

could be made at a later stage or by a subsequent owner and pokies would then become a part of the Sunrise community. Some of the councillors felt that a drive-through bottle shop would also cause problems of both noise and alcohol consumption which were contrary to the nature of the village. Director of the Byron Youth Service (BYS), Di Mahoney, was one of those who spoke against the development during public access. ‘We are not opposed to Dan Murphy’s per se, we believe that any new liquor licences, transfer of licences in and around Byron Shire or extension to existing licences,

place our young people at increased risk of alcohol abuse, related crime and health impacts, and alcohol-related violence makes young people feel unsafe in their own community.’ Sunrise resident Joanna James said after the meeting that she had mixed feelings about the outcome. ‘While I am happy that the decision has been deferred, I feel that we are far from an acceptable outcome as the application as submitted should really have been refused,’ she said. ‘The application directly contradicts Council’s own draft Liquor Licensing and Approval Policy, which clearly states that

Council will not support any premises within 100 metres of a residential area. This policy also states that the noise levels must comply with EPA standards which have been overlooked in this instance’. Resident Miranda Burne sent an open inviation to the developers. ‘I would respectfully like to invite the owner of the land and development, Brian Flannery and his wife, to come and meet with the citizens of Sunrise and the Byron Shire and explain to us why exactly they think our local community needs another pub and bottle shop.’ continued opposite

Voyeur to hit the runway in the Bay

Some of the best local fashion will be rolled down the runway at Septemberâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Voyeur exposĂŠ. Now in its third year, the event will take place on the long weekend and feature at least twelve designers. Producer Galit Massuri, who has been running it since its beginning, told The Echo that this year would feature a new segment for young designers between the ages of 16 and 22. â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Rather than just be on the runway these new designers will have their clothes displayed on mannequins and the designs will be for sale,â&#x20AC;&#x2122; she said.

We want to show that thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s more to Byron than

hippy clothes.â&#x20AC;&#x2122; The cut-off date for designers to enter has been extended to this Friday, and in the meantime sponsorship is being sought. On board already as sponsors are Southern Cross University and Galit said that Voyeur should attract families as well as those

interested in fashion. â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a long weekend too so holidaymakers interested in fashion will be there as well,â&#x20AC;&#x2122; she said. â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll be entertainment, catering, performances and no shortage of champagne!â&#x20AC;&#x2122; More information on the event is at www.byroncentre.

BayFM subscriber drive is â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;breaking recordsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; BayFMâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Annual Subscriber Drive comes to an end this Sunday, August 21. For weeks, presenters and other volunteers have been working overtime, generating financial support for the station. Being a community radio station, and not for profit, the organisation covers its expenses mainly through sponsorship

and private subscriptions. This year the station celebrates 21 years of broadcasting with a massive inducement to subscribe: the chance to win $10,000 cash. According to Subscriber Drive Co-ordinator Lyn McCarthy, the prize has certainly resonated with many in our community. â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;BayFM has had

an amazing first few days of the Subscriber Drive,â&#x20AC;&#x2122; she said. â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve reached 50 per cent of our target in just three days. We know that the majority of our listeners support the station, no matter what, but the one in a 1,000 chance of winning $10,000 has certainly added further motivation.â&#x20AC;&#x2122; All prizes will be drawn on air

When an offer comes along, we should take it. Council needs to look at land as investement.â&#x20AC;&#x2122;

Council thanked the landowners for their offer and resolved to seeking clarifying information to complete an initial desktop assessment, including clarification as to whether they propose that Council acquire the whole of the lot or only a part of it; to assess the suitability of the land for sporting fields and to report the findings to Council within three months; and to consult with Shire residents in general and sporting groups in particular requesting written submissions.

Billi sportsfields Council has received a proposal from landowners adjacent to Dung Oval, Billinudgel, for the purposes of sportsfields. Cr Patrick Morrisey says the land in question is more elevated and has better drainage than the Dung Oval site. Cr Diane Woods said she would like to see more community consulation before any plans went ahead and that it was important to speak to the users. â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;We need to ask the

<echowebsection=Mullum Music Festival>


Is Council discouraging big festivals? From the policies put forward so far by Council it would appear so. The latest, a clause to be attached to the Events Policy, closes for submissions this week. If adopted, it will affect the only two large-scale festivals in the Shire: Splendour In The Grass and the Blues Festival. The proposed amendment â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;enables music events to be held in three additional landuse zones, sets limits on the number of major outdoor music festivals per year [and] places time restrictions on when they can occur and assists in biodiversity conservation.â&#x20AC;&#x2122;

Background In October 2010, Council adopted the Events on Public and Private Land policy, which imposed a â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;restriction of no more than two major music events to be held within the Byron Shire in any calendar year.â&#x20AC;&#x2122; It also defined a major event as â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;any outdoor music event of any duration that exceeds 6,000 patrons, participants and staff per day.â&#x20AC;&#x2122; When the Draft Events Policy took public submissions in late 2008, 58 opposed it, while only 46 were in support. Additionally, a 2054-signature submission against the draft policy was received by Council. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s no secret that none of Splendourâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s and the Blues Festivalâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s views or concerns were adopted by Council as the policy was being formulated. An industry meeting was held at the Council Chambers, with Council, on February 9, 2010. From that meeting, both festivals say their views were ignored. Eventually a joint submission to Byron Council by the industry was submitted via Arts Northern Rivers, which unsurprisingly was not in fa-

vour of the policy. Council staff are also on record as saying the policy/clause could potentially lead to legal challenges further down the track. So far, the Blues Festival has worked hard to follow Councilâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s guidelines, while Splendour relocated â&#x20AC;&#x201C; now for a second year â&#x20AC;&#x201C; to Woodford in Queensland. Splendour took their development application to state level, and if approved, it will bypass Councilâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Events Policy and will create a problem as to how to allow both big events to operate under different guidelines. The Echo has not received any response from Cr Basil Cameron or Mayor Jan Barham as to how both events would be managed.

Smaller festivals The most recently announced event for the region is Reggaefest, to be held in Ballina. Punters and Byron Shire residents could well be wondering if this type of festival would have been too hard to put on in our Shire. Reggaefest spokesperson Larissa Mitchell agrees the policy will not affect them, and told The Echo, â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;We decided to bypass negotiations with Byron Council this year as we found a beautiful waterfront location in East Ballina that was perfect for the event. So at this stage we havenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t had any dealings with

These events are vital for the local economy and are also a major part of the Byron Bay culture.â&#x20AC;&#x2122; The Byron Bay Surf Festival is set to launch its first festival on October 21, and co-organisor Vanessa Thompson told The Echo they donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t expect to be affected by the events policy. â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;I did get a letter of support from Council but none of the events we have planned needed individual approval from Council. In that regard [Council] were easy to deal with; my only gripe would be I tried to apply for one of their grants and it was hard to get the information I needed. I just gave up in the end.â&#x20AC;&#x2122; The Mullum Music Festival has been operating for a few years now, and has recently announced the line-up for its November 24 â&#x20AC;&#x201C; 27 dates for this year. Director Glenn Wright is a veteran alternative music promoter, and also manages Vitamin Records. He told The Echo, â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s clearly discriminating against music events and places all music events in the same bag. Are music events really valued below car rallies and sporting events? Under the clause up for consideration, if Womad wanted to move to

the area, then Byron Council would knock them back. That is ridiculous. â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;There could also be some trade practice concerns for Council. Who decides which two festivals gain approval, and for how long would that status quo last? I presume they are suggesting first in best dressed. Seems like a questionable way to proceed. Maybe they could get all the festivals that apply together and the festival directors could draw straws. Kind of like the cricket and who bats first? â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;In regards to the Mullum Music Festival, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s well under the kind of capacity suggested. I use existing venues with existing licences to operate as they do. There is no DA required except for a few outdoor area approvals. Council have been very helpful with the Mullum Music festival, and in particular the mayor has been a vocal supporter.â&#x20AC;&#x2122; Byron Shire Councilâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s public exhibition for the policy clause closes 4pm on August 18. Submissions on the proposed amendment can be made to

Love and embrace the Mad Monk Volume 26 #10

August 16, 2011

The aged: who cares? The Australian Productivity Commissionâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s report Caring for Older Australians ( was released last week. It sparked a flurry of interest in the news media and many responses from care organisations. The ABCâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s 7.30 ran a good report on the issue on Tuesday last week and a transcript is available at, along with video footage. Before the interviews with the aged, presenter Leigh Sales gave a rundown on the figures and costs: â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Today a million Australians use aged care services. By 2050 that number will more than triple. Over the same time the ratio of workers to retirees will halve. â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;You donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have to be a maths genius to figure out thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s going to make it pretty hard for the government to raise enough tax to cover the cost of aged care, which by then, will be about $50 billion a year.â&#x20AC;&#x2122; So out of both pragmatism and concern, the federal government is putting an emphasis on at-home care for the aged. Most of those interviewed seemed in favour of the idea, though they reckoned the aged-care â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;systemâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; needed less bureaucracy and more direction. Apparently you have to be Sherlock Holmes to track down what sort of services are available. In tandem with reforming aged-care models, there needs to be a fair go for aged-care workers, who do not get paid nearly well enough for the important and demanding work they do. According to aged-care union, United Voice, studies show that â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;by 2050, over 500,000 more workers will be needed to take care of Australiaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s aging populationâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a growth â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;industryâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; which will only attract more good workers with better pay. The carers deserve it, as do their clients. â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Michael McDonald, factotum

ustralia is a bit of a political backwater at the minute, but I doubt if Julia Gillard is losing any more sleep than usual over the situation. On balance, she would be pleased with the relatively untroubled domestic scene in contrast to the economic chaos of Europe and the United States and the dysfunctional society of the United Kingdom. But there is a downside: just as her government seemed to be getting on the front foot for the first time, it has finally been pushed off the front pages. The disability insurance plan was obviously supposed to be the great circuit breaker; the breakthrough that proved that the Gillard government was capable of dishing up fresh and enticing policy in its own right and was not simply re-hashing watered-down versions of whatever Kevin Rudd had left in the back of the refrigerator. It was universally applauded, even by those who have never had a kind, or even neutral, word for the government in the past: for once the opposition did not say no. The fact that it will be both complex and expensive was seen almost as a virtue, in sharp contrast to the reception given to the National Broadband Network. Gillard and her responsible minister, Bill Shorten, even got credit for the revelation that it is unlikely to become operative for at least three years; in what was billed as the year of delivery, pie in the sky was the favourite plat du jour. But partly because of the almost total lack of detail and partly because of the overwhelming weight of distraction from overseas it was very much a one-day wonder at a time Gillard needs an ongoing story


with a happy ending. Because the rest of the local news has not been good. To try a new metaphor, too many of the supposed deliveries have turned out to be wides and no-balls. The High Court has stalled the already unpopular Malaysian solution and the attempts to find an alternative in Papua-New Guinea appear similarly fraught. The Tasmanian forestry agreement, which

is likely to drown out any semblance of rational consideration or reasoned debate. The only real hope for the government is that the public will finally tire of the mindless brutality and demand something of substance from the opposition, but given the record of the last few months this seems absurdly optimistic. Joe Hockeyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s insouciant claim that cuts of $70 billion

What a Carbon Price Means for You bids fair to become the most unread publication since The Wit and Wisdom of Alexander Downer. by Mungo MacCallum was supposed to bring peace in our time, is being assailed from all sides and may not make it through the stateâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Legislative Council. The health reforms, hopelessly compromised from Ruddâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s grand plan, have been derided as expensive and ineffective. The mining tax remains stalled. And of course the carbon tax, in spite of all the advertising, is still very much on the nose. The bland, indeed soporific document thrust upon households along with their census forms was so low key as to be almost subsonic. What a Carbon Price Means for You bids fair to become the most unread publication since The Wit and Wisdom of Alexander Downer. And now, with Tony Abbott back in Australia and parliament back in session, Gillardâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s brief period of clear air has passed. The next few weeks will at last see the actual carbon tax legislation introduced, but the ensuing sturm und drang

to government spending to fund his promises to date are a mere doddle has been met with more credulity than the entire body of the science of global warming has ever received. The only moment of unease came when Tony Abbott, the minersâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; champion, mused that farmers really should be able to lock the prospectors for coalseam gas out of their properties. His resources minister Ian Macfarlane was quick to say that his leader did not really mean what he said at all and that the law would take its course, but Gillard and her colleagues must have once again been grateful that Abbott, and not Hockey, let alone Malcolm Turnbull, is leading the Liberal Party. According to the remorseless polling, he is the only thing that is keeping them in the race. They need to nurture and cosset him, not tear him down. This was the great mis-

take Gough Whitlam made: he did such a good job destroying Bill Snedden in parliament that the Libs finally gave in and replaced him with the hated Malcolm Fraser. And that was the beginning of the end; the frogs had rejected King Log and been given King Stork. It is to be hoped that in a similarly parlous situation a generation later, Labor has learnt its lesson. Love and embrace the Mad Monk â&#x20AC;&#x201C; heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s your only hope. nd as a footnote, let me record that I have been grossly verballed by The Australianâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Sneer-and-Smear section, Cut and Paste. Okay, so Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m not Robinson Crusoe, but this was a particularly sleazy exercise by the paperâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s anonymous crapulator. By selective cutting he/she/it removed all my criticism of The Australian from last weekâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s column and re-edited it as a paean of praise. In response I sent the following missive: Given The Australianâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s constant self-obsession I always expected that this weekâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s column in The Drum would earn a mention in the Sneer and Smear column aka Cut and Paste. But even I was impressed by the lavishness of malice and dishonesty in the way it was selectively quoted. At least the treatment confirms two long-held suspicions: the paperâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s much (recently) paraded Code of Journalistic Ethics, is, like John Howardâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Code of Ministerial Conduct, purely optional; and The Australianâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s paranoid need for self-justification is now completely off the planet.

Bullying in the workplace Thanks to The Echo for your coverage of the incidence of bullying occurring at our local government workplace in our â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;best little townâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; and opening up another can of worms. Bullying at work exposes a culture of violence, denial of every employeeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s human rights and lack or respect for our fellow workers. It is also a manifestation of inadequacies and fears on the part of the perpetrators. It is not acceptable practice in any community which aspires to democracy, tolerance and contentment. I am not so naĂŻve as to expect or believe that formal antibullying processes and training will resolve these appalling practices. However they do make a formal commitment  that bullying is not an acceptable workplace practice in the 21st century Bullying will not thrive in a workplace environment where all contributions are acknowledged and errors are treated with sensitivity, in a culture where workersâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; efforts are genuinely recognised and valued. Our schools are making valiant efforts to try to stem incipient bullying by children against other children. We adults cannot condemn antisocial actions of young people if the models of behav-

iour we provide do not support improved ways of interacting, including in our local workplaces. Arguably, the behaviour of significant adults in our lives sets a pattern of acceptable and unacceptable behaviour for young people. I do not want to pay rates to an organisation that represents me and that at some level condones bullying. I intend to contact local government councillors who represent me to take up this matter at Council. I urge you, if you too are appalled or even concerned about these practices, to do so too. I do not want to live in a community which could be labelled as â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;the best little bullying townâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;.

Byron Plaza Pharmacy

QThe report of workplace bullying at Byron Shire Council is disturbing, but not surprising. Bullying â&#x20AC;&#x201C; as with other forms of unethical and illegal behaviour â&#x20AC;&#x201C; is sadly rife in Australian workplaces, with research suggesting more than one in five employees are bullied. As a reasonably resilient and resourceful individual, who has experienced bullying firsthand as a senior executive (and even as a company director) I can attest to its seriously damag-

ing consequences. Typical responses to complaints include initial attempts at rationalisation and justification (â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s just the way he isâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;), followed by an unwillingness to investigate, and ultimately the lack of courage to act. Workplace cultures generally reward and promote psychopaths; Key Performance Indicators (KPI) focus on quantitative â&#x20AC;&#x201C; mostly financial â&#x20AC;&#x201C; as opposed to qualitative outcomes. Over 80 per cent of bullying is by â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;bossesâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; and in four out of five cases it is the victim who ends up leaving. Lack of succession planning often means that boards believe they cannot â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;affordâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; to lose a bullying senior executive. â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Offendingâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; organisations typically close rank, go into denial and even hire bully-boy lawyers to further â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;stick the boot inâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; â&#x20AC;&#x201C; leaving the weakest victims often unable to work again, and the stronger ones to lick their wounds while attempting to move on and put it behind them. In many cases the psychological, financial and career damage is extreme. What for me is most shocking is that the root of this behaviour can often be found in the boardroom itself. In just the past few years â&#x20AC;&#x201C; in my in-

volvement with a number of local organisations â&#x20AC;&#x201C; I have witnessed company directors who blatantly bully, ignore 360 degree feedback highlighting bullying problems, fail to act even when bullying has been witnessed (and experienced) directly, criticise staff for not submitting formal complaints, and then label complainants as troublemakers. Letâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s face it, legislation, the courts and codes of conduct in themselves donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t work. What is needed is a profound change in the cultures of organisations from the top down. This requires a strategic approach to cleaning up the workplace, ruthlessly ridding it of unethical behaviour. Integral to that is that â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;zero toleranceâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; must mean â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;zero toleranceâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;! Ultimately therefore, when it comes to creating safe and healthy workplaces, boards and senior management must be seen to clear their ranks of the clueless, the complacent, the cowardly and the corrupt, who â&#x20AC;&#x201C; despite ornate values statements and codes of ethics â&#x20AC;&#x201C; continue to condone bullying by their failure to act, and indeed often provide a role model for such toxic and obscene behaviour.

about the capacity of the plant to operate for its projected life expectancy unless problems in the collection system are immediately addressed. During dry weather household waste is collected and pumped through gravity mains to the STP. However, during wet weather events, water infiltration to those gravity mains, other than from households, forces the pumps to operate for hours longer than in dry weather conditions. In fact the old pumps were so overloaded that untreated sewage would flow into the Brunswick River.

What we now have, with the opening of Vallances Rd, is a Rolls-Royce engine in the form of the new STP with a collection system that is like a rusted-out car body. The gravity mains have long passed their use-by date. Alan Dickensâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s letter is disturbing because he claims that a number of pump stations have been upgraded with bigger pumps installed. This doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t mean that the infiltration problem has been addressed at all. It means that the same load of water can now be pumped in a shorter period of time. How long can the new

STP cope with such an hydraulic load? With an investment of $38m in the STP it is imperative that the collection system, particularly in the business area and east of Mullum railway, is fixed. The problem is that Council undoubtedly will argue that it hasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t got the funds to replace the sewerage pipes unless ratepayers are prepared to pay. To â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;protectâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; our investment in Vallances Rd and keep untreated

Shifting lines in the sand Council resolved last Thursday to publicly exhibit the option to amend the New Brighton off-lead dog exercise area by way of reduction of the southward extent to 50 metres north of the Brunswick Heads Nature Reserve boundary and extending the northward extent approximately 700m to a line adjacent to Ocean Avenue, resulting in an off-lead exercise area of 1500m. Council also resolved to support moving the Brunswick Heads Nature Reserve boundary from the Mean High Water Mark (MHWM) to the Mean

Low Water Mark (MLWM) and to seek support from NPWS, the NSW Minister for Environment, Don Page MP to change the relevant legislation. Nature reserves are just that, reserves for nature and places where the whole community, that means everyone, can respectfully enjoy nature in a Reserve system. There are no fences, gates or locks. People can access this reserve by car, boat, foot or paddling a surfboard across the river mouth. The benefits of moving the boundary to the MLWM would enable NPWS to man-

Eyeing candidates


Deborah Lilly

Coordinator Mullumbimby Community Action Network

Jan Barham was absent from a Council meeting again last week. Given that Council has just voted to give the deputy mayor $10,000pa out of her salary (the first time this has ever happened) there is an obvious intention for her to be away quite a bit and for Patrick Morrisey to take over much of her role. So much for the claim that she could do the mayor’s job and be a state politician at the same time. In many respects I’ve regarded her as AWOL for quite a while now, but the fact is that I have agreed with the vast majority of her voting behaviour. That vote will now be unavailable for much of the time and outcomes will be more prone to Basil Cameron’s point-scoring tendencies and Simon Richardson’s toss-ofthe-coin inconsistencies. This must make Ross Tucker very happy. Personally I think Jan should have quit so that we could have had a by-election for the mayoralty, giving us an opportunity to assess the new mayor’s performance before locking him/ her in for a four-year period; we’ve made too many mistakes in the past. Of the current line-up I would prefer Tom Tabart to be the next mayor. He’s the only one to regularly challenge the

age the entire spit ecosystem as a whole from the river, estuary, land and ocean beach for the benefit of the entire community. It’ll also reduce Council’s compliance role in that area of beach. Both proposals will require broad community and government support to become realities. Cr Patrick Morrisey

Deputy Mayor Byron Shire Council Q Where can one go to sue for the lives of marine and wildlife affected by the ‘forgotten’ dog pooh bags left on the beach by

staff and the funny business and he also conducts a meeting with a light touch. Unfortunately he doesn’t seem to be interested. Next would be Patrick Morrisey, who doesn’t have a sense of humour and hates dogs but does his homework, conducts a no-nonsense meeting and votes in a green but practical way. His main defect is that he believes that all problems can be solved with goodwill – which seems to mean that if you refuse to acknowledge improper views they’ll just go away. Next would be Basil Cameron, whose high intelligence is somewhat mitigated by his equally high self-esteem and by the nakedness of his ambition. There’s something I need to say to both Crs Cameron and Morrisey here. Both of you have been sticking your necks out on conservative issues – the proposed northern sports grounds and the re-labelling of agricultural land. I suggest you talk to former Crs Ermacora and Tardif before you further delude yourselves. Ermacora was stunned to see how low his mayoral vote was after championing causes that conservatives would favour, and Tardif wasn’t even re-elected even though he actively changed sides and became a de facto conservative. What you need to understand

the ‘responsible’ dog owners? Jill Ball (Letters, August 9) chides Council for its clandestine meetings and the exclusion of their voices, yet it seems short memories when it was all their own way with companion animal meetings in 2006 behind closed doors which led to this now debarkle. And who would finance the fencing off of the national park that they suggest? I’m with Councillor Morrisey – it is about time humans take second place. Ralph Johnston

South Golden Beach is that Ross Tucker has consistently marshalled his constituency in a very disciplined and tribal way so that there is no leakage. No matter what you do for the conservatives therefore it will not earn you a single extra vote. Your main opposition, in fact, is Simon Richardson – should he put his hand up, that is. Not because of talent, but because he’s a Greens identity. Your only other chance is to receive my endorsement, either in terms of preferences (if I’m still angry enough with you and staff next August) or as the only commentator with sufficient experience of your performance to credibly comment.

Challenging ignorance

Stereotype, verb: a fixed idea or perception of a particular type of person or group that is often incorrect (Source: Oxford Dictionary). If you think about it, ‘stereotyping’ is a language unto itself. Some may argue it is an integral part of the jocular Australian culture. But where do you draw the line? When do seemingly harmless monikers become racial, cultural or even abusive slurs? The sad reality is first impressions do count; compound that with a few stereotypes and a simple introduction of ‘I’m

In a recent discussion between the Byron Shire Youth Council and a community worker about the mental health risks associated with prolonged exposure to stereotyping, an interesting point came up about the idea of living in a â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;tolerantâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; community as opposed to an accepting one. The idea that instead of being a community that is tolerant of different cultures, religions, sexual orientations, age and every other basis of judgment, that we adapt a more accepting and embracing approach. Sometimes though, positive stereotypes do arise, one such being that the â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Byron

Shire is a very accepting and inclusive communityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;. While this is predominantly true, personally Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d say that there is always room for improvement. For those of you who already form opinions based on experience with the individual, I salute you. For those who donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t, I encourage you to instead of judging a book based on its cover or series, treat each as an individual and at least read the first two chapters. But if, like many, you canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t resist a good stereotype why not reinvent the wheel a bit and create a few new positive ones? Instead of a â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Geriatricâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; what about a â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;College of Knowledgeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;? Instead of â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Hippiesâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; maybe â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Environmentally Friendlyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; or how about that generalisation known as a â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Humanâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;?

Obama, Timothy Geitner and Alan Greenspan are putting shit on Standard and Poors for downgrading the US credit rating. Last time they were in the gun for failing to predict the GFC. What does that tell us? That the analysts and commentators donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t know sweet Fanny Adams? That weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll shoot the messenger either way? If we spend we are wrong; if we save we are harming the economy? Or could it be that the flaws in the debt-driven, continual expansion model, in a closed system, are eroding the foundations of that system? In this era of secrets revealed and logical conclusions reached it seems that we still have much to learn. Emotion trumps intellect. Ask any gambler. As Robin Harrison (Echo, Cara Maku August 9) so eloquently put it, Mullumbimby â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s all stuff we made upâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;. We

Chinese enthusiasm I thought Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d share some perceptions from my recent business trip to China. While bearing in mind the insidious underlying suppression of dissent I was thrilled to experience the infrastructure and organisation in the area I visited around Shanghai. There were no unexpected holes in the pavement, there was little air pollution, and there was a reasonable sense of aesthetics in the urban landscapes. I had the feeling that anthropogenic climate change had been in swing for a few centuries. This was apparently

due to the unending rice paddies evaporatively humidifying the air. It was a 1,000 kilometre wide open-air sauna. Speaking of climate, I was thrilled to see every second bike or scooter was electric. The clean quietness of efficient movement as the myriad busy people filtered through the streets was breathtaking. It renewed my enthusiasm to bring more electric transport to Australia to move us beyond oil. Also quiet was the repeated frustration of twenty-somethings with their difficulties accessing Facebook, YouTube,

City Football Club. Dire; turgid; dross; appalling; readily come to mind when reflecting on BCFC’s recently concluded Premiership season. They won a minor cup and bought a trophy cabinet. They were relegated – much to the relief of football lovers everywhere. Their manager, rewarded for overseeing the worst display in living memory, deserted and joined their arch-rivals, the scum Aston Villa – just four miles across the City. Their Chinese takeaway-owning billionaire(?) chairman was arrested for money laundering

in Hong Kong and is now out on bail. He has appointed his 18-year-old son to the board as his replacement. All of the players, who might have loosely been called footballers, have departed. I and the other two BCFC supporters in Byron are so looking forward to the coming season. Tony Parker

Signs of the times

How gratifying that John Pilger, renowned for his support of the Palestinian cause, received a standing ovation from an audience of 1,000 at our Writers’

Festival. As he introduced his latest film The War You Don’t See in the Byron Community Centre, he congratulated my activism in promoting Palestinian freedom from oppression. This is in glaring contrast to my run-in with Byron Shire Council (BSC) who informed me that my trailer, parked on an out-of-the-way patch of grass en route to the Festival venue, had to be removed or it would be impounded and I would face a fine of $1,500. When I asked BSC’s official what the problem was he said, ‘You’re causing offence for a start.’ He informed me that complaints had been received

over the slogans on my trailer which read ‘Support an Independent Palestinian State Free of Israel’s Brutal Oppression and Boycott Apartheid Israel: Uphold the Law (No Settlement Building, No Collective Punishment, No House Demolitions)’, all of which John Pilger and probably most of his 1,000 Writers’ Festival audience would endorse. Indeed, Pilger writes on his website: ‘It’s only pressure from outside Israel – from Jews especially – that will end this nightmare. People in the West must know that while there is silence, this looking away, this profane abuse of Israel’s critics

as anti-Jew, they are no different from those who stood aside during the days of the Holocaust’ ( articles/listen-to-the-heroesof-israel). Council has a special dispensation which allows, for example, real estate agents to pepper the Byron streetscape with For Sale signs, Red Bull vehicles to carry large cans on their roofs, Coca-Cola cars to blaze their advertising in bright red and Wicked camper vans to carry obscene comments.

Advocatus diaboli

Profound respect is due to the noble tradition of debate used in circles of higher learning to validate knowledge. We should therefore become both wary and alarmed when we are told ‘the debate is over’. Many a political commentator has fallen for this ruse and joined the chorus of those denigrating the educated opponents of suspect climate science. When ‘science’ remains unchallenged it begins to resemble dogmatic faith-based religion and ceases to develop. The father of modern science Galileo Galilei found (to his detriment), a church unwilling to accept his heliocentric heresy. Thus it is so with the modern sceptic and an essential trace gas our government presently intends to monetise in order to address climate change. The Vatican cleared Galileo’s name some 300 years after his outrageously correct concepts stressed the arbiters of faith. We cannot wait that long to challenge the frail presumptions of the carbon tax lobby. For those wishing to decide the facts for themselves in support of healthy debate, ‘Axe the Tax with Facts’ is a flyer available free from ultraspace@, or visit for more information.

Taxi torments

It is more than annoying to see arrogant and ignorant drivers leaving their private cars on any main taxi rank, especially the one in Jonson Street opposite the Great Northern Hotel. One wouldn’t know, if one never tried, how hard it is handling wheelchair jobs without sufficient space. Parking inspectors and police would make a mint just by patroling cab ranks. Is anyone interested? I saw the best T-shirt just the other day on a young man. It said NOBODY GIVES A SHIT! I know. And, how coincidental, 98 per cent of those cars on the ranks have a Queensland rego plate. Safe driving! Rudolf Surina

Ever wondered how recycling works? How does one start with a truckful of plastic, cardboard, stubbies and half-full jars of pasta sauce with greenish fuzzy dots and end up with something useful, even valuable? Byron Shire Council now sends its recycling to the new, state-of-the-art MRM Recycling plant at Chinderah, opened this March. The facility averages 500T of recycling per week. 80T comes from Byron, the rest from Kyogle, Tweed and Beaudesert Shires. The Echo visited MRM Recycling to see how our recycling is being treated.

Sorting The first stage of the sorting process is manual. Mixed Recycling is dumped on a conveyor belt, and two heavily gloved workers stand either side of the belt picking out things that shouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have been there in the first place; camping chairs, pillows, sixpack wrappers, garbage bags and styrofoam are all pulled off the line before they enter the machinery and go to landfill. Stage two is a series of strainers â&#x20AC;&#x201C; huge, noisy munching machines. Rotating wheels throw paper and cardboard over the top. Glass bottles are smashed into little pieces and fall through

The new Chindera recycling plant.

to the bottom. This leaves aluminium cans, steel and plastic containers which are spat out the side and into the high-tech end of the process. In stage three, tin cans and other steel items are pulled off with magnets, then comes the best bit. Plastic containers and aluminium cans are similar in size and weight. They are hard to separate. Together they run at high speed off the end of a conveyor belt, underneath which an Eddy Current machine lies. It generates a strong electromagnetic field which repels aluminium. While the plastic drops wanly off the edge of the conveyor belt, the aluminium cans leap joyfully into midair, like select guests jumping the queue at a crowded nightclub, off to their very own VIC party. Indeed, of all the products from the facility, aluminium has the highest value. Ninety per cent of material

entering the plant is sorted and on-sold. Approximately 60 per cent is paper and five per cent is plastic. Both are baled and sent to China for further processing. Twenty-one per cent is glass which is sent to Gosford for crushing into industrial products. Six per cent is steel and aluminium which is sold to Simsmetal and re-used. The remaining eight per cent are contaminants.

Contaminants Chris Morris is the manager of the MRM Recycling. â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;The plant cost $3.2 million to build. Almost all the machinery was designed and produced in Australia, and I can say with confidence that itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the best separator around,â&#x20AC;&#x2122; says Chris â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;but the contaminants can still stuff it up.â&#x20AC;&#x2122; His pet hates are â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;car parts and other heavy pieces of metal which jam the machinery, and

things like ropes, wire, extension leads and garden hoses which wrap themselves around the rollers.â&#x20AC;&#x2122; Both cause interruptions and breakages. Nappies â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;are easy on the machinery but hard on the nose,â&#x20AC;&#x2122; he says, and he wonders why people go to the trouble of separating their recycling, then throwing it in the yellow bin inside a plastic bag. â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;We canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t open up bags, so anything inside a bag goes straight to landfill. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s just a waste.â&#x20AC;&#x2122; As for the recycling habits of Byron Shireâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s residents: â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re the worst,â&#x20AC;&#x2122; says Mr Morris. â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;We see a lot of garden waste from Byron Shire, and a lot of fencing wire.â&#x20AC;&#x2122; According to Chris, Tweed and Kyogle are on par with room for improvement, and Beaudesert residents get a pat on the back. As a result of the contaminatious behaviour of Byron Shire residents, BSC and Solo Waste Management have begun a â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;carrot and stickâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; auditing program. Soloâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s education officer Katie Pye will be auditing 100 bins per month across the Shire. The carrot is a $100 prize for bins that contain only recyclables. The stick is a sticker; either a polite warning to sort more carefully in future or, in the case of grossly contaminated bins, a â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;do not collectâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; sticker which will leave the offending household with their own Bin Laden.

The Poet Lorikeet of the North Coast came part of his reality. God, Jesus and the Holy Ghost are patients who are administered shock therapy by a mad, evil German psychiatrist. Subsequently they become The Three Stooges, who reappear as a panel of doctors reviewing Ferdieâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s case. Gibson etched the Theatre of the Absurd into the minds of those who experienced his unique take on the human condition â&#x20AC;&#x201C; vale the â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Poet Lorikeet of the North Coastâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;. Gibson is survived by his partner Penny, his sisters Mary Jane and Janet, his son Ben Sullivan and granddaughter Lilyana.

Geoff Helisma

As the â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;biggest gigâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; of his life neared, writer, poet and performer Rod Gibson sought solace in his art. He quoted Oscar Wilde to those dear to him: â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;My wallpaper and I are fighting a duel to the death â&#x20AC;&#x201C; one or the other of us has to go.â&#x20AC;&#x2122; The big gig he referred to was his funeral at the St Maryâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Catholic Church in the Northern Riversâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; town of Maclean on July 18; the wallpaper, a cancer that had spent years slowly consuming his body. Gibson lived two distinct lives; the first 23 years were relatively normal, albeit one of a draft dodging, long-haired, flare-wearing hippie in the years leading up to an LSDassisted psychosis in 1974. He once recalled to this writer the day he stepped into his schizophrenic universe. â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;I thought â&#x20AC;&#x153;Big Brotherâ&#x20AC;? was 12 Negro junkies who ruled the world psychically from New York City. They had agents in Australia who grouped together in covens and formed this sort of psychic search beam. They scanned the suburbs. I was living in Sydney at the time, and I could feel this psychic search beam coming. It was pretty bizarre stuff. It could only read your mind if you had your mouth open. I could feel it coming so I closed my mouth as it passed.â&#x20AC;&#x2122; Gibson moved to Byron Bay, the NSW north coastâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s creative epicentre, in 1986, where he met his partner Penny Chapman â&#x20AC;&#x201C; polar opposite personality-wise, they shared a love of alcohol; he was the hand and she was the glove. In Gibson, Chapman found â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;someone who hears me, he was the one human being Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve ever known who I felt absolutely allowed me to be who I amâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;. Chapman kicked the alcoholic demon out of her life two years after they met; Gibson defeated his nemesis a decade later. These years, however, were prolific for Gibson; his muse,

schizophrenia, provided inspiration and insight that enabled him to see and express life in ways others could not â&#x20AC;&#x201C; what he called â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;perennial issuesâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;. He wrote poetry, plays, short stories, novels and film scripts. Sixteen of his plays were produced in the region. He was shortlisted for the Angus and Robertson Bookworld Prize in 1993 and the Off the Page Short Play Competition in 1995. In 1994 Gibson won the Jean Stone Poetry Award; in 1999 he won the Nicholas Shand Memorial Poetry Slam (Byron Bay), and he won the Schizophrenia Fellowship of New South Wales annual poetry competition five years in a row. One of his plays, The Beatification of Mary McMullen, was made into a short film and, in May 2000, the Northern Rivers Performing Arts (NORPA) choreographed one of his longer poems as a dance piece. In June 2005, Gibson returned to Byron Bay (from Maclean where he had lived since 2002) to perform his 15-minute â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;dark tragicomedyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;, The White Feather (which had previously been an Australian Theatre Company production at the Tin Shed Theatre, Byron Bay in July 1992), at the townâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Community Centre theatre. Over four nights Gibson

performed his piece â&#x20AC;&#x201C; inhabiting the character of Myles, a Cinzano-drinking advertising executive who descends into a maudlin state of self-loathing and regret over the life choices he made in the 1960s â&#x20AC;&#x201C; in competition against 11 other theatrical productions in a contest dubbed Hot Shorts. At the contestâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s conclusion, Gibsonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s ability to extract riotous laughter from his audiences left them no other option but to vote him to a comprehensive victory. But it was The Fine Art of Kissing the Ground that Gibson regarded as his masterpiece. Mullumbimby Drill Hall Theatre president, Michael Borenstein, cites Gibson and the play among his greatest influences, alongside luminary playwrights Tom Stoppard (The Real Inspector Hound and After Magritte) and Sam Shepard (Angel City). Gibson described the play, which was toured throughout the Northern Rivers region by the Baywrite Theatre Company, as a â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;roller-coaster ride of life in a large psychiatric hospitalâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;. Set in the backwards, â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;where they used to incarcerate people for a few yearsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;, the story is told by a schizophrenic named Ferdie, who has three unpublished stories that be-

Poem (winner of the 1991 Sydney Festival Poetry Cup) Rod Gibson 1985: The wind blows the trees about as if they were in a wrestling bout I stand there in my blue pyjamas feeding meat to my pet piranhas The world is spinning slowly Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m told the Sahara is hot, the south Pole is cold I think I might be mentally ill. I decide to give the piranhas a thrill I place my left hand in the water, the room echoes with my laughter They strip my hand to the bone â&#x20AC;&#x201C; it only takes one hand to write a poem.

Donations towards this venture can be made by emailing his sister Janet Gibson at for details.

Future-proofing our nationhood


The first in a series of articles relating to globalisation and the rule of law by local solicitor, Stephen Hegedus

health care, dispute resolution, security, education and other aspects of once-public life that are all now trending toward the private sphere. One can imagine stateless global communities such as Facebook playing a part in these developments by providing the structures necessary for international citizenship participation. However, it is increasingly likely that your ability to exercise your rights under the umbrellas of these global communities will be constrained by your ability to participate financially, or, as Attali puts it, to â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;purchase riskâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;. Public spaces and institutions are more and more likely to fall into the hands of pri-

vate interests, as governments struggle to cope with debt obligations and servicing. Your ability to access these spaces and institutions will depend on the level of membership that you are able to purchase. Thus, within Australia we would be likely to have increasingly stratified social classes. On this view, the world will be like a giant airport terminal. The Q Stephen Hegedus is a solicicommoners will have access to tor for Clarissa Huegill & Asgeneric space where time and sociates in Ballina. items can be purchased on a pay-as-you-go basis.

ing all of these spaces are likely to be bands of renegades or pirates seeking financial gain outside of accepted conventions or contractual bargains. Your ability to withstand pressure from these pirates may depend on your ability to insure yourself for protection or, as Attali predicts, these pirates will seek to legitimise through the collection of tithes or tributes and then compete directly with the insurance firms for patronage. While this is just one scenario out of an infinite number of possible futures, I think where Attali is correct is in dispensing with the assumption that nation states are likely to be enduring players into the next phase of the 21st century. In future-proofing ourselves and our own communities, we may need to look for solutions that re-imagine the role of the nation state. The alternative may well be the continued erosion of our democratic rights at the expense of the unfettered and unencumbered expansion of financial markets.



nalysis of the continuing financial crisis is commonly undertaken from a nation-state perspective. What will it mean for Australia? What will it mean for China or the United States? The relationship between nation states and the free market is whatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s really at stake. This crisis is structural, in that it stems from the very nature of capitalism, and has little bearing on nationhood. In the past few decades financial markets have outstripped their host nation states, and become one global playing field. At the same time, there has been no genuine political or legal response or correlation to this global market. Currently no supra-democratic institutions monitor, let alone regulate, activities of these cross-border financial behemoths. Market forces have now in effect superseded the rule of law. Noted French economist Jacques Attali, in his book A Brief History of the Future, postulates that nation states will be forced into greater and greater irrelevance through an inability to cope, both financially and structurally, with the unregulated scope of change in the emerging technological and economic spheres. Attali hypothesises that massive insurance and re-insurance firms will step into the breach providing quasi-citizenship rights to members that can afford protection in terms of

Recycle your mobile phone to help Landcare and Coastcare groups protect our coastline. MobileMuster is calling on Australians to round SURFING CHAMPION LAYNE BEACHLEY SUPPORTS MOBILEMUSTER. up their old and unused mobiles, batteries, chargers and accessories to achieve two great environmental outcomes. Through the ‘Old phones, more trees’ campaign, which runs until September 30, MobileMuster aims to collect 250,000 handsets and provide up to 25 grants of $2,000 each to volunteer Landcare and Coastcare groups around Australia. The groups will use the funds to undertake vital work to maintain and protect the coastline, including dune restoration, revegetation, weed management and protection of coastal habitat. This is the fifth year that MobileMuster and Landcare have partnered to run the ‘Old phones, more trees’ campaign. Since 2007 the campaign has enabled Landcare groups to plant more than 255,000 trees across Australia and recycle more than 149,000 kilograms of mobile phones and accessories. This year’s aim is to collect twice as many handsets as last year. But not only will Australia’s beaches and coastlines benefit from the campaign, you’ll also be helping to keep mobiles out of landfill and to conserve valuable resources. Over 90 per cent of the materials in a mobile phone can be recycled. Recycling 250,000 old mobiles plus their batteries and chargers will recover enough materials to make 48,000 aluminium cans and more than 2,400 plastic fence posts. Recovery of these materials will also avoid the need to mine more than 728 tonnes of gold ore, 808 tonnes of silver ore and 178 tonnes of copper sulphide. • See for mobile phone drop-off points.

The Byron Shire Jackpot Lottery is starting again in September this year... with $1000 in cash prizes to give away. We check bins weekly and give $100 prize for clean recycling bins. If the bin’s contaminated, the prize jackpots. The competition simply involves randomly checking residents’ recycling bins and rewards efficient recyclers. ‘If you’re recycling properly, you’re contributing to a brighter future and we want to reward you for this.’ Education Officer for Solo Resource Recovery – Kate Pye. The ultimate aim of the competition is to get residents to focus their attention on the responsibility they have to reduce the amount of waste that goes to landfill. Your rubbish bin should only contain stuff that cannot be recycled... stuff like garbage bags, cling wrap nappies, dog poo etc. Recycling bins are where most household waste should be. All aluminium, steel, plastic, paper and cardboard products should be placed in the recycling bin – free of food scraps. Although most residents have it right there are unfortunately some people out there who think recycling doesn’t matter. They think they can put whatever they want in the recycling bin and it will go unnoticed. We

want to let people know through this competition that this is not the case. We check bins regularly anyway but now we’re rewarding people for doing it right. For more information call 6687 0455.

ETHICAL INVESTOR PROFILE – ELSA EVERS To be honest, I’m not the best with money. I like stories more than numbers, so I’m a dreadful failure when it comes to budgeting or anything that requires tracking numbers across spreadsheets. Luckily for me, there are people like those at Australian Ethical that do like numbers. Luckier still, they’ve worked out that our personal investments make a significant impact on the two things that are most important to me – people and the environment. Oh, and food. I spend most of my day thinking about food. Of course, a good portion of that includes daydreaming about what I’m going to have for lunch – cheese toastie, risotto, pumpkin and beetroot salad – it must be about that time now. I spend the rest of the day working on the Greenpeace sustainable food and farming campaign.

Right now, Australia is set to be the first nation in the world to grow chemicalintensive and untested genetically modified (GM) wheat. GM has not been proven safe to eat; yet labelling laws around GM are woefully inadequate. Last year Greenpeace tested S-26 baby formula and found it contained unlabelled GM soy and corn ingredients. In the absence of proper labelling laws, Greenpeace publishes a shopping guide to empower Australians to avoid GM and its associated health risks. After work, I like getting dirty in my kerbside garden. The little girl from next door comes to help do the watering most afternoons and the other day she ran up, so excited. ‘My teacher asked if anyone knew what a turnip was,’ she said. ‘I was the only one!’ In amongst working, eating and digging, I don’t have much time to be checking out the ASX and where my savings are being spent. I’d rather trust people like those at Australian Ethical to make sure my dollars aren’t making the world worse off than it is. I’m not good with money, but as a storyteller, it makes good sense that if we want a happy ending, we need to be paying for the ‘good’ characters to play larger roles.

SPACE to socialise, to play, to explore, to use, to share, to shelterâ&#x20AC;Ś Our small footprint has never been a problem for the kids, but for some of the parents who went to schools with big ovals and halls it was an issue. With our new undercover learning and play areas and our hall and library open to kids full time, we hope any concerns from parents will be gone forever.

More than the sum of its partsâ&#x20AC;Ś

The INVOLVEMENT of parents and community members in a childâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s learning is paramountâ&#x20AC;Ś Kids donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t learn in a bubble. And not just via the internet. Kids need to be surrounded by parents, teachers and community members who all share a common sense of responsibility and understanding of their learning needs. By providing the extra space for our parents and community members to be involved in our daily school programs we will be able to create an even stronger sense of involvement than ever before.

Individually each part of our new building is a revelation in one way or another, but together they are much more than a sum of the parts. When you see it all together with our kids, parents and staff using it for its intended educational purposes you will see great things happening. Here at BCPS the kids can be themselves because we have the space and environment that caters for them, encourages them and provides for them. Send your child to our school and they might just ďŹ nd their passions, strengths and talents too.

GOOD TASTE ... p32

This hysterical one-man comedy show will have audiences across Australia in sidesplitting fits of laughter. Erupting with the explosive mix of self-disclosure and social insights that saw his phone tapped after entertaining the coalition troops in Iraq, George will erupt afresh in Mullumbimby and Lismore this August. George had a quick chat with Seven about what to expect. George, how would you describe yourself on stage? On stage I feel at home, Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m comfortable in my own skin, confident and poised, alert and strongâ&#x20AC;Ś really something to beholdâ&#x20AC;Ś thank God! What do you think are the most essential attributes for a comedian? Insight, humanity, timing and energy. I should know; itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a giant responsibility to possess these qualities. How have you seen the industry change since you started? Just like skateboarding and boxing the industry has become corporatised. Comedians are still a bunch of insecure narcissists who just want to be loved. If Red Bull or Coca-Cola love them, all the better. What was it like for you making it big so early in your career? Making it big so early in my career? I first did standup when I was one year old. I stood up, made some funny sounds, my parents laughed and applaudedâ&#x20AC;Ś I was hooked. It was a total no-brainer for meâ&#x20AC;Ś but it didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t just happen overnight. Did becoming successful change George Smilovici? Becoming successful did change me. I love success.  It has and will always make me a better person and comic.

LUCIE THORNE TIX We have a double pass to giveaway to see Lucie Thorne at Byron Brewery on Saturday 26 August. Email with subject header â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Thorne Tixâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;.

How do you work up new material? I work up new material by stressing out, worrying, watching the world go down the toilet and then working out how I can use it to my advantage and make peopleâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s lives seem worth living. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m here to help. What is your world view? My world view is simple. I know that nothing will ever fail to surprise me. Basically Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m extremely naive. What are the things that you hold dear? The things that I hold dear are my close friends and loved ones, my privacy, innocence and huge amount of wealth. Where do you see yourself 20 years from now? In twenty years from now Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll be healthier, better looking, richer, more energetic, sexier, funnier and much more of a realist. If you hadnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t become a comedian, then what? The high of being a comedian is immense. Had I not been one I would have become an astronaut. Part time. What should we expect for your show at the Mullum Civic Centre? My Mullum show, the first one of the tour, will be amazing. I canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t wait to see what Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m going to say and do. I want to make sure that the audience leaves at the end hurting, physically hurting. People WILL lose bladder control. I could be the cause of another  great flood. Bring your floaties, folks!

QUESTION TIME This Tuesday past, citizens of Australia were expected to fill out the Census. There was a collective groan around the nation as households scrabbled for a pen, struggling to recall where they were living on 9 August 2006. Some complained about the invasion of privacy; pot smokers feared it was Big Brother trying to find out where they lived (like Centrelink, the Tax Department and Facebook don’t already have every shred of information there is to know); while others dutifully checked the appropriate boxes with a compliant slash. As an information tool the Census is very inadequate. Every five years the government has this unique opportunity to gather information about the populace and they blew it again. This is nationwide Q&A! So they know where we live, who we’re rooting, how much we earn, but in the scheme of things, when it comes to running a country, developing policy and shaping a nation, it’s insufficient. I see the Census as an important ‘getting to know you’ tool and frankly I want to be asked more interesting questions. There are much more important questions that should have appeared on the Census, questions that give a feel for a nation’s pulse, our predilections, our prejudice and our pretensions. Do you support the Carbon Tax? Do you believe in Climate Change? If not, why? Do you have a problem processing information? Do you drink Coffee? If so is it a latte, a flat white, a soy dandy chino, or other… please specify. That question alone would establish whether or not the person was a wanker or not and by establishing who was on the dandy drink statisticians would be able to declare ‘20 per cent of Australians are in fact complete nobs’. This is very useful information. What about a question that established the real level of our empathy and compassion: What criteria do you think Australia

should use to accept refugees? White? Christian? Big Tits? Crikey, not another boat load of Poms! Or where do you think Australia should hold its refugees while they are being processed? Malaysia? The Moon? Movieworld? Bangalow? (I had put Grafton but that is against the Human Rights Convention as it bans torture under all circumstances.) How about something topical like: What do you think about the Dalai Lama’s appearance on MasterChef? Is he a media slut? Was he just hungry? Or was he planning a Tibetan version where they turn the tables and only eat Chinese? What about a question about Shane Warne? What do you think of Warne’s new look? Hot? Medium? Mild? Sad? Oh no, he’s turned into Simone? Why not ask questions about how people are feeling? Let’s get right to the point. Are you happy with your life? Are you happy with your wife? Are you disappointed in your children? Are you disappointed in yourself? What size is your penis? Small. Medium. Large. X Large? What size was your penis on 9 August 2006? And for the ladies, have you ever considered labioplasty? Why, are your labias obstructive to free movement? Are you a complete moron? Or did you wake up one day and go, you know what, I know why my life is in the toilet, why I can’t keep a relationship, why no one likes me and why things are unmanageable. It’s got nothing to do with my choices, or my circumstance, it’s my labia! So, in five years from now I expect a thorough spiritual, emotional, physical and philosophical interrogation. Otherwise I’ll suggest our government get more accurate and gather their information the way superior beings such as aliens do – through a very simple and efficient anal probe.

Live Les Wilson’s Swing Force Big Band music


artists. New initiatives include a musical street parade, a mystery event where 20–30 people attend concerts by profile artists in unique settings. For example, you could find yourself nestled on a couch listening to Jordie Lang in someone’s loungeroom. Also this year the festival introduces a songwriter search in collaboration with ABC North Coast, and a local craft market in the festival grounds. There’s the very special opening-night concert at the Civic Hall or funky Friday beats, or Saturday’s reggae and roots, or Sunday’s smorgasbord of sumptuous song. This is a festival where you can ride your bike, bring your kids, and wear your togs. Headline artists for the 24–27 November 2011 event have just been announced. This year international artists such as The Dynamites with Charles Walker (USA), Stranger Cole (Jamaica), Little Bushman (NZ), Serena Ryder (Canada), Ray Bonneville (USA), Epizo Bangoura (West Africa), Cornerstone Roots (NZ) Tracy McNeil (Canada) and Anna Coddington (NZ) bring their world-class music to festival stages. They’re joined by Aussie acts such as The Bamboos, Tim Freedman & The Idle, Jordie Lane, Husky, Abbe May, Lanie Lane, Dubmarine, Oka, Darky Roots, Anthony Garcia, Declan Kelly & The Rising Sun, Electric Empire, King Tide, The Graveyard Train, Mojo Juju, Barons of Tang, Sal Kimber & the Rollin’ Wheel, The Tiger and Me, The Good Ship and Liz Martin. The line-up also includes over one-third local acts, allowing the cream of our industry to play alongside international and national profile acts. These artists include Sara Tindley, Yeshe, M Jack Bee, Garrett Kato, Greg Sheehan, Fyah Walk, Wild Marmalade, The Perch Creek Family Jug Band, Jacqueline Amidy, Ilona Harker, The Lucky Wonders, Alice Blu, Jimmy Willing & The Real Gone Hick-Ups, The Round Mountain Girls, Rebecca Ireland, The Black Billy Goat, The Windy Hills, Acre, Paul Hasselgrove & Rusty Steel, The Soul Shakers, The Rogue Gene featuring Belle Hendrik, Zoe Lamoure & Space Cowboy Stunt Show, Mae Wilde, Flycycle, Spikey & Friends, The Slow Show, The Lolly Pops, The Cupcakes and The Biggest Little Town Choir. Of course there is going to be so much more. General Release Tickets are available from Tuesday 16 August at or by credit card phone order @ 02 6684 6195.

Musical Paradise at Mullum Music Fest


Laurie Anderson sang ‘Paradise is exactly like where you are right now, only much, much better’. She could have been describing the Mullum Music Festival, four days of international and national profile artists nestled in the shadow of Mt Chincogan and Mt Wollumbin. This is the kind of gig where you can feel the grass under your feet. ‘Sometimes the most wonderful places are right under your nose and the most creative thing to do is to leave things as they are, and simply look at them from a different angle. Sometimes all that is needed is music and a vision,’ says Festival Director Glenn Wright. Four years ago a seed was planted in the hearts of music lovers and in the streets of their town, now Mullum Music Festival (24–27 November) bears fruit with a festival programmed to inspire, engage and enrich. It’s all about Big Music in a Small Town when the festival lights up the pubs, halls, cafes and clubs of Mullumbimby. Mullum Music Festival is living up to its hometown moniker and is fast becoming The Biggest Little Festival in Australia. Local resident, Festival Director Glenn Wright, believes that to create a sustainable festival, you have to make it a sustainable size. ‘It’s about using the amazingly diverse venues that already exist in Mullumbimby,’ he says. ‘There’re no extra structures, fences, tents or portaloos – just lots of music in existing venues!’ Even though Thursday, Saturday and Sunday sold out last year, the Festival is committed to creating a unique intimate event with international, national and local acts. The festival has capped its own numbers and will keep the festival at its current size. This year’s Early Bird ticket allocation sold out in two weeks. So music lovers best get their tickets early! Mullum Music Festival will continue the initiatives it kicked off last year with a youth mentorship, tree planning, a free Friday gig at the Mullumbimby Growers Market and the opportunity for audience members to participate in workshops and master classes with their favourite

Melia and Nerida from Scarlett Affection have been busy! Not only have they been working on their debut album set for release early next year, but the Contemporary Music School they have created is moving from strength to strength. The Scarlett School has now attracted two incredibly supportive patrons – President of the Bangalow Chamber of Commerce Mr Michael Malloy and also Director of the Australian National Academy of Music Mr Paul Dean. Not only will this support generate fabulous opportunities for Scarlett School students – their patronage reflects the high calibre of originality and musical creativity emerging from the School. Inspired by the talent in the School, The Scarlett Singers has been conceived – a collection of the School’s best voices. Having already performed at the Hallelujah Choral Festival and the Bangalow Music Festival, the Singers are set to open for Scarlett Affection at their intimate, sold-out concert at Harvest, Newrybar in September. The Scarlett School will be running a September Intensive Music Workshop Program on 28th and 29th September for singers, songwriters and performers. For more information please email info@ Melia and Nerida are always on the lookout for talented, dynamic teachers for the Scarlett School. If you think you have what it takes to inspire the next generation of talent please call Melia 02 6687 1925.

Thorne in your Sighs Lucie Thorne is heading our way with a gig at the Byron Brewery scheduled for Saturday 26 August. Don’t miss the girl about whom Drum magazine raved: ‘Somehow both restrained and edgy, Thorne retains her seemingly effortless ability to weave spaciousness into her songs, which makes them all the more enthralling. Bonfires In Silver City is further proof Thorne deserves to be mentioned in the same breath as Australia’s first ladies of indie singer/songwriter fare’. And even more impressive was the review by Ian Çuthbertson in The Australian: ‘Mitchell fans will sense a resonance of 1976’s Hejira, for many her masterpiece, in Bonfires In Silver City… While Hejira’s theme of geographical dislocation is missing from Bonfires, perhaps replaced with journeys of the heart, the records are strikingly similar: poetic, introspective works that have a solidity and wholeness.’


E N T E R T A I N M E N T With DJ Edson spinning some old tunes and indie between bands, there is the promise of a lot of positive energy and good vibrations as well as an opportunity to find out why an evening with The Bungalows is just what youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve been waiting for, even if you donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t know it yet.

Steve Tyson's stories What do a Japanese man fanning his penis in a train, a petrified Russian tour guide, a drunken Irish wife-basher, and an Australian trying to escape the aftermath of 9/11 all have in common? They are the inspiration for some of the extraordinary songs by Steve Tyson, from his solo album Temple Dog, released just a few months ago. The critically acclaimed record is a collection of stories from Tysonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s journeys in exotic locations throughout the world, and time spent on the European roots music festival circuit. He will be joined by his longtime touring companion Dave Parnell (cocktail drums and acoustic guitar) from 7pm on Wednesday at the Rails.


Mumbo Jumbo Mumbo Jumbo appear at the Byron Bay Buddha Bar Brewery on Saturday from 8pm. Funk and blues, pop, rock and soul will be the genre for the night. With a selection of originals and covers they guarantee to have you dancing, moving and grooving. The band have been getting airplay for the past 12 months on Triple Z with their originals Pretty Face and Mr Phony from their recently released CD Heart Matters.


A feminist wave has hit Byron Bay and the 7whatevers crew are more than happy to embrace this all-girl assault! Anna Lunoe leads the charge with her long-awaited return, backed up by Katie Karma v Kat Stapels, Penny Droops and Ali (Terraformaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s better half) all in an attempt to prove without a doubt that ladies do it better! Lighting up this bevy of fierce ladies will be the new Trip Kicks LED light showâ&#x20AC;Ś that will have blown some minds at Splendourâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Tipi Circle. Youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll also be hit with the organic visual spectacular of Tuxtla, Vman & Cruz, live art from â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Back Alley Galleryâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; and a sideshow of tricks, kicks and performers, including arguably the best dancer in the worldâ&#x20AC;Ś Tommy Franklin! Shows have a tendency to sell out so presales are an absolute must! Donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t miss Trip Kicksâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; Ladies do it Better, â&#x20AC;&#x2122;cos we just do.

Beach Cars

Leading the way with some smooth, soulful and rocky vocals is Tamara Ward, who also throws a little sax into the mix. Well known to audiences, guitarist ACIDB Horace Bevan will rock you, along LE LISMO ED AT THE L RE CIT IS with bluesman guitarist Neil Jeffs. Y BOW MORE JAZZ LING C Jim Lieschke with percussion and LUB O CLUB AT N SUN Jon de Laurence on bass will generate DAY some infectious sounds.

The Sound of Bungalows This Friday The Bungalows head up a night of surf music at Byron Bayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Great Northern Hotel. The free show will celebrate the recent release of the bandâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s new studio album Monkey Mountain Road which is out now through MAKEyourself Records. MAKEyourself is the project of one of the newer Goons of Doom band members, Ray of Sunshine, whose Sydney-based collective is home to fellow artists Mylee Grace and Fait Accompli.

They call it second-album syndrome. It happens when signs of early promise and the weight of expectation simply prove too much to live up to. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s difficult to ignore and even harder to overcome. But for Calling All Cars it was all a bit of a non-issue when they returned to the studio to begin work on Dancing With A Dead Man, the follow-up to their highly acclaimed 2010 debut album Hold Hold Fire.

The lead single Reptile â&#x20AC;&#x201C; with its angry, nihilistic vocals and tightly coiled rhythm section â&#x20AC;&#x201C; smashes any preconceptions you might have about this band. But itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the first of many twists on a record that solidifies Calling All Cars as a brutal force of nature. If Calling All Carsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; debut was all about their finding their feet, its follow-up has them kicking in the door. Beach Hotel, Thursday, 8.30pm, free entry.

Spoonbill Heads the Bill

Songs of Praise It’s the bestselling book of all time and has been translated into over 2400 languages. No, it’s not Harry Potter, it’s the Bible. I bet JK Rowling wishes she could have a crack at that! Translated into English, and first published in May, 1611, on the command of King James I, it weighed in at 13.6 kg and was chained up to prevent theft. More than 169 of these original editions are still in existence; one recently was on exhibition in Sydney. To celebrate this historic anniversary, a combined choir including St Andrew’s Anglican Church Choir, Lismore, with a variety of soloists, is presenting a program of hymns and anthems inspired by Bible passages, under the direction of musical director and organist, Warren Whitney. Come and join us, Vaughan Williams, Stanford, Stainer, Handel and others, in some of your SPOONBILL AT REGGAEF favourite hymns. ES

Reggaefest is lining up to be the premier reggae event of the year, with international and national profile artists making their way to Ballina for this two-day event. Heading the bill is Spoonbill, King of improvised electronica. Since the Spoon conception, he has played countless live shows across the globe, from California’s Symbiosis Festival (2005, 06, 07) to Nevada’s infamous Burningman Festival (2005, 07), Fusion festival 08 in Germany and the Glade Festival in the UK (2007, 08). In that time he has enjoyed supporting and playing alongside some of the best: Amon Tobin, Tipper, Kid Koala and OTT. It’s the sort of plucky success that only comes from someone truly in love with the genre they roost in. When one indulges in repeated listenings to Spoonbill’s creations, like an aural illusion, more and more becomes apparent. It’s his level of devotion to the craft that means anyone from the casual listener to the fully fledged sound boffin can find an abundance to satisfy their desire for original, intricate and highly listenable material. Spoonbill, through his own label, Omelette Records, has recently launched its inaugural VA compilation of downtempo groove electronica from across the globe and now showcases succulent works from further purveyors of fine, innovative sound waves.


Beach Daddies The WellSwung Daddies are a 10-piece band formed in August of 2010, when members acquired arrangements of the modern swing masters, The Cherry Poppin Daddies, Big Bad Voodoo Daddy, Royal Crown Revue and Brian Setzer. Using arrangements transcribed and arranged from original recordings and selected for their modern interpretation of swing, jive, rock’n’roll, Lindy hop etc.

Reggaefest at Missingham Park in Ballina 17 and 18 September.

Using Your Influence With two countries so close, it was only a matter of time before NZ and Oz developed a cross-Tasman sound. Direct Influence have had a hell of a year through 2010 travelling far and wide with their debut album War In My Kitchen criss-crossing Australia and NZ, heading to Japan for a showcase show and a stop in Vietnam to perform to their biggest radio station’s 10.4 million listener audience – and capping it all off with a performance opening for N.E.R.D. at Rhythm and Vines festival to a crowd of 20,000 people.

Sunday 2pm St Mary’s Anglican Church, Norton St, Ballina.

The band consists of two trumpets, two saxes, trombone, guitar, bass, drums, piano and lead vocalist – a big sound E H that needs to be heard to be believed!

The Gurge at the Northern So last year’s feeling was to cruise ahead recording and releasing tracks as they bobbed to the surface and disseminate as pleased via the many layers seemingly offered on the web… and in doing so possibly echo the way music is potentially engaged with more and more through the decentralised broad chaos of the net. Regurgitator are a band that have always done things their own way, whether it means recording in a plastic bubble or being shacked up in Melbourne in a creative blizzard.

Lindsay Webb is a chatter. While some comics attempt to talk to the audience to create their shows, most are amateurs compared to Lindsay who manages to weave his comedy Webb tightly around the room. His ability to engage an audience makes every show unique; his comments are insightful rather than insulting, and his gags are never predictable. While at the Melbourne Festival he also did a gig where he made a woman laugh so hard that she popped an eye out! True story – you can check Google! Lindsay is truly an

international act worthy of the title, with six Edinburgh Fringe Festival visits under his belt, an American Tour and Festival (Indy Fringe 2010) as well as plenty of tours across the Tasman (including as an international guest at the 2009 NZ International Comedy Festival in Auckland). Oh, did I mention he broke a Guinness World Record in 2009? Well he did! The Longest Ever Standup Show by an Individual – 38hrs and 6min raising money for the awesome charity ACT for Kids.

Spirit Whispers The winner of Channel Seven’s hit series The One and Australian Psychic of the Year, Charmaine Wilson will give her audiences a chance to connect with those who have passed over in order to give messages of peace and love to the living. Having just completed a sell-out tour of Australian capital cities, the remarkable medium brings her special gift back to regional Australia. Don’t miss Charmaine Wilson – The Spirit Whisperer. Charmaine was not woken up to her gift to re-unite those who have crossed over to those still in life until 1999 after her father died. It took a further three years to work out what the voices she kept hearing were and then learn how to work with them. She has lived through a lot of heartache in her life, including the death of her brother, her four-year-old daughter, both to tragic accidents, and more recently her mother. These deaths have made her a most compassionate and understanding reader, especially in relating to how her clients may be feeling. 15+ show only Ballina RSL, Thursday, 8pm (doors open 7.30pm) Tix $40.

a m e n i c s w e i v e r Red Dog What with the world going to hell in a banker’s silk handkerchief, the loathsome Tony Abbott skulking around the Wide Brown making cowards of us all and the news in general being always negative (interest rates up is bad, interest rates down is bad), I knew from afar that I would love this film – and I loved it even more than that. It’s based on the novelist Louis de Bernières’s fictionalised account of a real dog and his wanderings in the Pilbarra. I’m unfamiliar with the book but

suspect that the story’s emotional impact, and for me it was profound, would be terribly diluted by having prior knowledge of what happens – coming to the written word after its screen adaptation is surely preferable in this instance. We meet the rough’n’ready, thankfully not cute kelpie in the opening scene when a truckie (Luke Ford) stops at a pub just as Red Dog (Koko), poisoned by a bait, is about to be put down. Nobody can bring themselves to shoot the muchloved animal so, after a vet has administered an antidote,

the locals gather in a vigil, sweating on Red’s recovery. All of them have a tale to tell about how their life has been affected by the dog and the movie proceeds as a series of flashbacks. Set in the Dampier of forty years ago, the men who work at the Hammersley Iron site are a mixed bag of rough nuts and reffos (God help them), vagabonds and the broken hearted and, though each of them feels that Red is his, the kelpie chooses John

the Yank (Josh Lucas) to be his person. The balance of humour and pathos is perfect, the pace rollicking without being helter-skelter, and the blokey world of the dusty outback, so easily and frequently overdone, never intrudes on the intensely personal nature of how man and dog interact. There’s no need for me to say how much any dog owner will relate to it, but even barren misocynists might be touched. It’s an absolute joy. ~ John Campbell

you’ll just have to learn to like ’em or lump ’em. Hal Jordan (Ryan Reynolds), a top-gun test pilot, finds a crashed alien who, before he dies, bequeaths to him a ring, a weird lantern (its ugliness suggests that it was made by a Nimbin hippie) and a creed – ‘brightest day and blackest night, no evil shall escape my sight’ (and you thought the Freemasons were funny). It means that Hal is now one of the troubleshooters who, authorised by the ancients on the planet Oa, are meant to keep order in the universe. His first gig is against Parallax, a humungous villain with mandatory basso profundo voice (Julius Caesar was a countertenor in one of Handel’s operas – I’ve never heard anything so silly). Reynolds is a blockhead, with no charisma to speak of, but there is something about his tiny-eyed vacuity (does it speak to its target audience of hoodies?) that ultimately complements the emerald green body suit to a tee. Carol (Blake Lively), the trophy skirt, is delectable – the scene in which she first meets Hal in his new outfit, with green eye-mask, is a witty reference to the Lois and Superman encounter from the first Christopher Reeve film – but she doesn’t get a lot to do in a typically masculine adventure. Mark Strong turns up as Sinestro, a major-domo of the Green Lantern brigade but, even in flesh-hugging lycra and gonzo haircut, he still looks like Mark Strong. The headline act, however, turns out to be Peter Sarsgaard as Hector, the

Viswanathan Anand’s world title defence against Boris Gelfand will take place in May 2012 in Moscow after yet another controversial decision by the world chess body FIDE. Anand’s home town Chennai had been led to believe that they had the winning bid, since their offer of a $2.25m prize fund, backed by the Tamil Nadu state government, trumped the Moscow bid by a quarter of a million dollars. However, shortly before bids closed, FIDE allowed Moscow’s sponsor, the shipping billionaire Andrei Filatov, to raise his offer to $2.55m. Ten days later FIDE President Kirsan Iljumzhinov granted the match to fellow business oligarch Filatov. Iljumzhinov gave various curious reasons for his decision, including the remarkable nonsequitor, added to a hastily withdrawn first press release, that the Russian government had declared their support for Iljumzhinov’s Chess in Schools program.

Those shrill green olives you can now buy in supermarkets are nothing more than immature Sicilian olives in caustic soda. Alan Hodgson from Summerland Olives, who is imparting this information to me, certainly should know. â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re grown in Trapani and bottled in acids plus copper-based food colourings,â&#x20AC;&#x2122; he says. â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;That colour was all about market pressure â&#x20AC;&#x201C; the pressure from Europe to get olives out into the marketplace quickly. The naturally processed ones stay olive green.â&#x20AC;&#x2122; That, presumably, accounts for the complete absence of flavour I have experienced the times I have been seduced into purchasing them.

we can survive is because there are 13 growers,â&#x20AC;&#x2122; Denyse tells me, â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;all actively involved. Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve only got small groves but to make a business we all have to contribute.â&#x20AC;&#x2122;

Summerland Olives is now a co-operative, whose members have olive groves in the Summerland region as well as central NSW and south-east Queensland. Steering the operation are Alan and Denyse, whose 25-acre property at Jiggi is home to about 400 table olive trees. â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;The only way

on blending olive oils. â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;We thought wine tasters were pretentious until we experienced these slurpers,â&#x20AC;&#x2122; laughs Denyse.

Alan processes every single olive, and it is all done completely naturally. He soaks the olives in a brine for anything between 12 months and two years, depending on the olives, in order to de-bitter them and get the flavours right. Nothing is wasted: the less-perfect fruit are dried out or whizzed up to become tapenade. â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;If we cheated and used caustic soda the return would be quicker, but we donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t use chemicals,â&#x20AC;&#x2122; he says. â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s more expensive and itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s slower our way. Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s why none of us are rich!â&#x20AC;&#x2122; While Denyse is the â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;faceâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; Alanâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s authority comes from the Churchill of Summerland Olives and does all the markets, Fellowship he won in 2007, awarded in order having retired from nursing a couple of years ago, that he study the production of Sicilian-style green olives and waste management â&#x20AC;&#x201C; an award, Alan is in the factory five days a week, ordering, processing, bottling, drying, preparing the herb moreover, that took him to Italy. He and his wife Denyse became involved in olives mixture. And sorting them all by hand. â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Meticulously!â&#x20AC;&#x2122; he following the purchase of a farm at Blue Knob says. â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;With all this meticulousness weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve taken out seven years previously when, in their innocence, 56 awards in the last five years.â&#x20AC;&#x2122; Denyse adds that they thought they would like to make their itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the awards that act as a benchmark. â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;You can own olive oil. â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;It started out as a little boutique say to the locals, this is the proof, this is quality,â&#x20AC;&#x2122; weekend operation,â&#x20AC;&#x2122; says Denyse, who was then working full time as a nurse with the Department she says. of Health.

Lions’ sweet revenge on Suns Family back for another Try

Beating him to the punch, Gold Coast’s half back Nathan Bock flies over a pack of Lions during the Q-Clash in Brisbane. Photo AFL Photos Stuart Amos

Brisbane had sweet revenge over the Gold Coast Suns on Saturday night with a 10-goal win in the Q Clash II at the Gabba. The Lions’ win has now made it a draw in head-to-head clashes with the fledgling Suns on the back of their 18.15 (123) to 8.13 (61) win in front of a crowd of 23,565. It was only the Lions’ second win from their past 11 matches and their fourth win for the season – it cushions the pain of their gut-wrenching eightpoint loss to the Suns in round seven at the Gabba back in May. Brisbane controlled the game from the outset after kicking the first four majors,

but there seemed to be a lot of playground antics from the Lions with pushing and shoving of the Suns playing with Brent Staker, pushing Abblett one too many times before a verbal altercation. They quickly raced to a 23-point lead and while the Suns were able to peg the margin back to 11 points in the second term it was to be the closest margin of the match. It was a bit of the same old with inaccurate field kicking marring the contest with exactly a third of the 408 kicks for the evening being either ineffective or blunders, making it a difficult and frustrating game to watch for Suns’ fans. In the third quarter, Brisbane dominated but could only

kick 3.6 – missing a number of gettable set shots, while the Suns added 1.4. It took until the final term for the Lions to break open the game and ride the wave home for the win. Brisbane coach Michael Voss said although it took until the late in the second half to ensure victory, he felt as if they had the Suns’ measure from the outset. ‘I thought most times (when we went forward) we were going to score,’ Voss said. ‘We spoke about patience all night and you couldn’t rush the result, so it was more about keeping it simple and not overthink it. ‘We thought our way through it. They weren’t getting any ball movement flow and generally our defence was really, really good. Suns’ coach Guy McKenna berated his players for a lack of effort. He said they failed to chase, create and move the ball quickly which was a major disappointment after giving them a light week on the training track to freshen them up for the clash. ‘The most disappointing thing about the night was the lack of effort,’ McKenna said. ‘We made them look quick because we couldn’t go. It’s difficult to manufacture things when there is no effort. We’ve tried to look after them as much as we can during the season. We gave them two days off this week.’ Simon Black said the hurt of losing against Gold Coast earlier this season inspired him to a stellar showing against the Suns on Saturday night. Black won the Marcus Ashcroft Medal for best afield in the Brisbane Lions’ 62-point win, and a classy last quarter goal to edge out teammate Matthew Leuenberger for the award. The Suns meet Adelaide Crows next Saturday at Metricon Stadium. Don’t miss your chance to pick up a few tickets with the giveaway in this paper.

The Seventh Annual Brunswick SLSC Try-athlon is on again; this year the big day is September 11. Now is the time to get your teams together and start training for this family-friendly event that is held every year just before the lifesavers begin their patrol season. The very manageable 400m river swim and with the 4km ride and 10km run without a hill in sight makes this event a fantastic opportunity for everyone to have a go either as a team or on your own. The tides have given us a start time of 8.30am this year with registration at the sound shell from 7am. For complete

details and to download your entry form go to Back again this year for the seventh time will be the Rixon family from Brunswick Heads. Dave and his daughter Sally will compete in the cycle and swim legs. Sally’s sister Kelly is usually the third run leg but as she is away this year, the Rixons have roped in Dave’s son Shane for the 10km run to the finish line. A great raffle will also run to help raise funds. The prizes are: First prize Malvern Star Ladies Cruiser donated by Sunrise Cycles; second prize, a one-month bootcamp voucher

from Brunswick Bootcamp and dinner at Rice; and third a meal voucher from Conti. The raffle is being run from today and the winners’ draw will be held on the day of the Tri – you do not have to be present to win. Volunteers will be selling tickets at the Hotel Brunswick, LJ Hooker Brunswick Heads and Mimi and Flo. Tickets also available on the day. All prizes have been generously donated by local businesses who support Brunswick SLSC and the Triathlon. For complete details and to download your entry form go to

New Byron Bay festival promises to deliver

‘Surf Culture Now’ The Byron Bay Surf Festival is about ‘Surf Culture Now’. It’s gonna be rad, it’s gonna be diverse and fun, and like the blond kid with the dripping wet hair said, ‘it’s gonna be cool.’ On the weekend of October 21–23, history will be created when the town of Byron Bay hosts its first ever, dedicated Surf Festival. The wholesome focus is on the creative culture within surfing, including live music, filmmaking, original art, photography, and the shaping and riding of handmade surfboards. Opening the festival will be none other than international surfing icon, Byron Bay local Bob McTavish, presenting a live surfboard shaping demonstration while sharing an historic look at his first trip to Byron Bay. Events over the weekend include, surf markets, surf swap meet, ‘freestyle&stoke’ surf sessions, surf related clinics, Surf World Museum exhibition, live music by Dan Hannaford, Josh


Hamilton, The Grains, and film collaboration/live music event by Andrew Kidman and The Windy Hills. Original art will be on display from James McMillan, Mark Sutherland, Hanai Yusuke, Luke Taffe, Rusty Miller, Vanessa Janss, including photography from surf filmmaking legends George Greenough and Albe Falzon. Just one of the inspiring events is ‘stART me up’, a new art exhibition and mentoring program for kids, developed by local artist James McMillan, in conjunction with Retrospect Galleries and the Byron Bay Surf Festival. Another exciting event being held on the Sunday morning between 8am and 12 noon is the Surf Swap Meet, open to one and all, and the ‘freestyle&stoke’ surf sessions. The idea behind this Surf Swap Meet is quite basic, even old age, in that you can actually swap one thing for another and no money is exchanged. Although anyone is welcome

to just browse or even buy. Shapers on the day include, Tom Wegener, Sage and Paul Joske, Simon Jones, Gary Burden and Thomas Bexon, all well-known and respected craftsmen who practise the art of hand-shaping surfboards. And the ‘freestyle&stoke’ surf sessions; an expression session format surf event from 10am to 12noon with four categories of 10 registered surfers in each, for half hour per category; Log (incl old mal), Fish (incl stub, hull), Finless (incl alaia), and Vintage (pre-1980). At a glance the purpose and intention of this event is about creating a sustainable surfbent event for the local community to build on, and at large it’s for everyone that surfs. The simple motivation behind The Byron Bay Surf Festival is to have a killer weekend in Byron Bay immersed in Surf Culture as we know it right now. See website for program, locations and images: See you there.


Shiners’ season over but Byron Union heads to semis DJ Longtime & Dean Travaskis

Byron Bay rebounded from their first loss of the season with a 57–0 win at home against the Mullumbimby Moonshiners on Saturday. The Bay looked like a different team from last week. The players were focused, the talk was positive and the willingness to play hard, physical rugby had returned. The nine-try victory keeps the Ashes Trophy above the bar at the Rails for another season. Matt Dennis opened the scoring with a classy chip and regather after five minutes. The entertaining centre would go on to score two more tries. Winger Mitch Loane also recorded a scintillating hat trick for a personal tally of 27 points. The Bay’s return to form was built on a more physical approach to training during the week. The Byron forwards rolled up their sleeves and were

Josh Smith, Gus Hamilton, Dan Ryan and prolific try scorer Tom Renshaw. Champion Mick Leece also celebrated his birthday with another champagne performance. The Shiners held their own in the scrums but couldn’t match the blistering pace or skill of the best back line in the competition. Young five eighth Nathan Nicholls was outstanding holding his nerve and displaying plenty of courage under intense pressure. Prop Wally Andrews muscled up and landed some bone-crunching tackles, while winger Simon Hutton was his usual jack-in-the-box self. It was not the ideal finale to the Shiners’ twentythird season but it was not for lack of passion or spirit. The camaraderie Mine! Mine!! Mine!!! Got it!

Byron Bay has finished the season with 13 wins from 14 games, scoring 417 points and conceding only 105. The Bay must now re-focus and prepare for a semifinal showdown with Kyogle, the only team to lower Byron’s colours this season. The Major Semifinal will be played at the Byron Recreation Fields on Saturday August 27 at 2.30pm. The winner moves straight to the Grand Final while the loser has a second chance against either Yamba or Evans Head. The Moonshiners wish Byron all the best in their finals quest but look forward to regaining the Ashes in 2012!

ers looked set to sizzle. New Gecko recruit Pete Mortimore was asked to bowl his first over in three years, and the old bull looked well up to the task until he damaged a fetlock on about his fourth ball. Bowling Cadel-like through the pain barrier he sent back three Suffolk batsmen and when Ali lured Scotty down the track the Swingers had come unhinged, losing four wickets for two. Carl and Jossco hung around to be the counterweight that could swing Suffolk out of the hole. Carl looked destined to retire but was rifled out by a Dan quicker ball. Big John proved that somehow all pommies have upped their game now that their test team is winning, peppering the skate park with missiles that managed to add to the already

high risk factor of a couple of aerial manouvers. Left two overs short of their alotted 33, the Swingers still managed a handsome 163. After lunch the Geckos looked like tomorrow’s roadkill as Levi and Jake had both openers in the shed by the fifth over. It fell to ‘Whirlwind’ James and Dan to make a show of the high target. James retired faster than a priest with an investigation looming, but Dan had jarred his hand badly in a freakish footy incident at half time. It was strangely compelling to watch him wince his way to a heroic but painful 30, a bit like watching a smiling saddhu popping needles into his flesh.

It was a question of wether the Geckos’ middle order could match James and Dan’s effort, but the answer was a parable written by Wayno, Luke and John who bagged two scalps each and conceded less than Wayne Bennett at a finals press conference to wreck the lower order. By the time James and Dan returned the asking rate was above ten and rising and the

Geckos were looking overmortgaged. Jake foreclosed on the innings and the game with his second wicket, and the Swingers broke out into one of their random, obscure and arcane victory songs, the last strains of which were heard heading towards the Suffolk Park Hotel. Next week the Geckos hope to stick to the task against Left Bank.

Suns’ ticket giveaway Junior Giants A great round of football for the Mullumbimby Junior Giants this weekend. The under 7s played a great game against a bigger Bilambil team working well together and trying hard. Murwillumbah proved to be a force to be reckoned with for the under 9s, however the team pulled together to make some try-saving tackles. Nice straight runs and some nifty offloads got them close to the try line a few times. The under 10s were defeated 26–12 by Cudgen.

The under 13s had a great game against Cudgen despite some controversial calls that really changed the shape of the game. Points to Blake De Costa, Zane Savage and Trav Watkins. The under 14s put in a really strong team effort to beat Murwillimbah 36-12. James controlled the game well from full-back to see him get man of the match. Rory also had a superb game leading the team with strong runs and hard tackles. Once again after leading 20–6 at half time the under 16s went down 32–20 to South Tweed. Injuries and missing players are taking their toll but the boys continue to put in a gutsy effort.

Energy saving programs Member for Ballina, Don Page, is encouraging businesses in the Ballina Electorate to get involved in the NSW Governmentâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s energy savings programs. There are five key programs available to help businesses save power and reduce costs. They are Sustainability Advantage, Energy Saver, the National Australian Built Environment Rating Scheme, the Energy Efficiency for Small Business program and the Energy Efficiency Training Program. â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Some businesses in the Ballina Electorate have made some outstanding achievements in improving their energy efficiency,â&#x20AC;&#x2122; Mr Page said. The Sustainability Advantage program helps medium and larger organisations improve their environmental performance and reduce

costs. The Energy Efficiency for Small Business program helps small businesses (up to $20,000 energy use or up to 10 employees) to reduce electricity use and costs. There are 458 organisations in the Ballina electorate that have taken part, so far, in NSW government business support programs. â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;With the rising cost of electricity and the difficult economic times we are facing, I encourage more businesses in the Ballina Electorate to take part in the energy saving programs available through the NSW Government,â&#x20AC;&#x2122; Mr Page said. â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;These programs offer a win-win for businesses and the environment. Full details on all NSW Government business and household energy savings programs are available from the Save Power website at

Secret handshakes

Victoria Cosford

What do freemasons actually do? According to one Lennox Head member, they support lots of charities. John Fraser has compiled a small book which charts the history of Eltham village and the Eltham Masonic Lodge Temple to tie in with its centenary celebration on August 23. Freemasonry has long been shrouded in secrecy. Even today little is known about the secret secular society which evolved in the Middle Ages. The Masonic Lodge arrived in Australia around the time of the First Fleet and is characterised by a number of unusual rituals, secret handshakes and costumes. Most of Australia’s politically conservative prime ministers up to the early 1970s were members, including Edmund Barton, Robert Menzies, John Gorton and William McMahon. Mr Fraser told The Echo that he joined up because the

Council presents women’s conference

Relationships, peer group pressure and health issues can be challenging for young women. In order to address some of the issues, Byron Shire Council has brought together health workers from across the Shire to present at the Let’s go for a Walk: A Young Women’s Health Conference on Wednesday August 24 at Bangalow A&I Hall from 9.30am to 2.30pm. Byron Shire Council’s youth activities coordinator Belle Arnold said the conference will be run by women, for young people in it were ‘the salt of the women in a women-only space. earth. Some have been pillars of the church or on council, presidents of tennis associations. The whole point is charitable – we support lots of charities, deliver Meals on Wheels, support the Helicopter Appeal. It’s a fraternity – people say it’s a brotherhood but we do now involve ladies.’ In fact as late as the 1960s women were not allowed to sit in on the monthly meetings. Mr Fraser said that there used to be many more masons. ‘But the clubs defeated it, because you could take your wives along,’ he said. ‘It’s now become less of a man’s thing. You do have to be a formal person, a ritualist. It’s the rituals that drive people away.’ The wives of freemasons both past and present are definitely included in the centenary celebrations, as are their children. Mr Fraser said that about 100, both members and guests, were expected to attend.

Male dancers wanted The Byron Ballet is now casting for its October production of the famous children’s story Peter and the Wolf. The Byron Ballet is primarily a youth ballet company. Dancers include professional guests, talented students from around the Shire plus mature experienced dancer/teachers. The company has already inspired many local audiences, bringing ballet to schools and many first-time ballet goers. This will be their fifth largescale production. ‘One of the reasons we chose Peter and the Wolf was the fact that there are potentially many male roles – Peter, the wolf, grandfather and the group of hunters. ‘One of the major aims of the company is to encourage and nurture male dancers as there is just so little opportunity and support for them in

country areas,’ says company director Yvonne Hall. ‘I wanted to get as many male mentors as possible to help give the boys the permission to be themselves, to dance what they want to dance – without feeling worried what people may think.’ There are still some soloist roles available for dancers on pointe, plus corps de ballet and males. There are also a few junior roles available. ‘The Byron Ballet is a public company and it is there for both dancers and audience members to nurture the art of classical and contemporary dance,’ says Yvonne. ‘Anyone interested in taking part either as a performer, or for collaboration in any aspect of the production process, should contact byronballet@’

Strata Community Australia chief executive Mark Lever said the strata services industry feared the package would be the latest in a long list of past and present programs which failed to recognise that almost a quarter of Australian households do not live in standard detached housing. ‘We have seen governments time and again tailor programs for individuals and businesses and overlook the fact that, many basic services are provided through communal structures. Recent examples include disaster relief, renewable-energy incentives and the home insulation program,’ he said. Up to one-third of energy usage in strata buildings is in common services – lifts, air conditioning, security lighting, pumps, carparks etc. These are beyond the direct control of individuals and any change needs a concerted and collective effort as well as specialist knowledge.

‘Just in the past month we’ve seen three separate reports confirm what we have known for some time – that for many if not most people the Australian dream of a home of your own no longer involves a back yard and a picket fence.’ Strata Community Australia’s core objectives are to promote professional standards in the industry, help consumers navigate the complexities of strata and community title and to be an effective advocate for the interests of the sector as a whole. ‘We’ve been encouraged that at least in some areas governments are starting to come to grips with the extra layers of complexity around working with strata and community title,’ Mr Lever said, citing the recent report of Treasury’s Natural Disaster Insurance Review and the National Broadband Network trial rollout as examples. ‘But we have a long way to go to catch up with the realities of today’s housing demand.’

Jodie Clowes reports: ‘With the phasing out of analogue TVs, there has been a huge amount of them getting tossed on people’s piles of rubbish, awaiting the Byron Shire hard waste collection day. Someone dumped this TV in the park on Tweed Street, Brunswick Heads. I photographed this resident rooster in front of the TV, and couldnt resist some Photoshop manipulation!’

Byron Shire received its fair share of attention last week, with Channel 7’s Sunrise morning show broadcasting from Bangalow and Judith Lucy’s Spiritual Journey (ABC1) taking in ethereal adventures around Byron Bay and the hinterland. Ms Lucy’s personal explorations are rigorous in the extreme, subjecting her to fluffy New Age nonsense, shamanistic journeys and tantric intimacy. It’s almost as daunting as her self-confessed experiments in alcoholism earlier on in her life. Judging by the DUI convictions handed out at the Byron Bay courthouse, a lot of locals prefer those experiments to chakra cleansing.
