The sexiness of being conscious

Push is on to keep Federal church a community asset Photo & story Hans Lovejoy

The race is on to secure $220,000 by June so the Federal church can be retained for community use. A meeting on Saturday morning at the town’s iconic church saw a crowd of around 70, including three current councillors, who all voted in favour of trying to raise the capital.

Organisers say donations will be partially tax deductible and in the event that the money is not raised by June, all individual donations will be returned. They added that it is important to keep receipts of all donations. If you would like to help the Federal community keep its church, simply donate through the NAB account that has been set up: BSB 082729, account number 119087713. Also you can email federalchurchfund@gmail.com, or post a cheque to PO Box 52 Federal 2480. Cheques should be made out to Federal Church Fund, and ensure your name is clearly associated with any deposit.

Co-organiser Rhonda Ansiewicz told The Echo, ‘The Federal community is resolute in retaining this historic church. It was built on donated land and with funds raised solely by the Federal community. ‘It is important we retain the history in our village. We hope to secure the church and keep it in perpetuity Q See editorial page 8 for future generations to come.’ A document sent to The Echo by resident Hilary Bone claims it was originally built by the Federal community in 1909 on land given by then-resident Samuel John McCutcheon. In 1911 it was transferred to the Corporate Trustees of the Diocese of Grafton and Armidale. Six months ago the Anglican Diocese of Grafton announced the decision to sell the historically significant building. At that point community members began negotiations and now the agreement is $200,000, with an Pictured is Rhonda Ansiewicz and extra $20,000 needed for expected Alan Goldstein, who are just two associated expenses. members of a committee that aims to raise $220,000 to buy back the Federal Anglican church.

Deposit needed A deposit of $20,000 is also required as soon as possible to kickstart proceedings, say organisers. A community chest of $10,000 is already established after previous fundraisers. The crowd was told by co-organiser Alan Goldstein, ‘Due to financial trouble, the Anglican Diocese of Grafton has been selling off real estate, including churches, in an attempt to recoup money lost on an educational development in Coffs Harbour. It is estimated to be a 10 million dollar shortfall.’ Ownership of the church, if achieved, would be handed over to

Such a large volume of traffic from major events on the site, he said, would compromise the safety and efficiency of the highway.

out on developer contributions from the site developers, which were levied against other developers, unless the proposal was referred to Council for assessment, saying it would cause an ‘unfair situation’ with competing commercial enterprises. He said the iconic Piggery backpacker hostel in Byron Bay had been levied $458,00 in developer contributions, but there would be ‘no contributions from this event’ unless it was referred to Council. Mr Darney drew wide applause after ending his speech by saying the development would have impacts on the

residential community that Council believed could not be mitigated and was ‘not sustainable in a shire of 29,000 people’.

Community speaks Paul Arrowsmith, president of the Yelgun Valley and Middle Pocket Community Association, said floodwaters as seen recently could cause waste water to be washed into environmentally protected wetlands and the adjoining Billinudgel Nature Reserve. South Golden Beach Community Association secretary Angela Dunlop said events proposed for up to 50,000 people, or ‘nearly twice the population of the Shire,’ would heavily impact on surrounding residents who wouldn’t be ‘able to cope’ with up to 96 days of the year of total disruption ‘from noise, illegal campers, and traffic flooding into our villages’. Billinudgel landowner Mark Watson said surrounding properties and roads would be used as ‘a sleepover spot’ by festival goers in vehicles and residents feared for their safety from ‘thousands of alcohol- anddrug-affected’ young people. Mr Watson also questioned what the ‘cultural’ events would be, saying ‘When will we find out? It’s all very vague,’ he said.

North Parklands festival numbers correction Regarding last week’s story on the North Parklands PAC hearing, The Echo would like to clarify that the planning department has recommended approval for three events per year of 20,000, 25,000 and 30,000 people trol outside the festival site, locals’ insurance premiums would rise and without any developer contributions, ‘ratepayers would be left to pick up the cost’. Mullumbimby businessman Ken Enstone told the hearing that in the mid 1970s he organised a rock-music festival in Wales where he lived at the time but it turned into a ‘catastrophe’ which upset the people of the area and he felt ‘very ashamed and never held another festival again’.

The approval also allows for an eventual 50,000 patrons at one major festival per year and up to 25,000 onsite campers, plus other minor events after the first five years. want to enjoy the area outside the event site? She said the two local public toilets in the north of the shire would be overused and people would ‘crap in the dunes’ and many would pitch their tents in wildlife habitat areas as ‘they know there won’t be enough rangers to patrol the area’. ‘Locals will have to clean up all the rubbish left by thousands of people and the proponents are not liable for any activities when they are off site. ‘We will have to endure the noise, rubbish and effluent and getting around in our vehicles would be an obstacle course.’ Of those speaking for the development, Northern Rivers tourism chair Cameron Arnold said events such as Splendour contributed to tourism in the area and wholesalers ‘are looking for new things to increase tourist numbers’ which onflowed onto small local businesses.

Mr Enstone said festival goers there disregarded the local community and property, with stealing and defecating in public areas, and he feared a similar situation with the Splendour proposal. He said those not accommodated on site would camp on local beaches and parks.

Tourism grants help operators re-invent Story & photo Eve Jeffery

Things have changed down on the farm as tourism incentives breathe new life into the simple life. Several regional tourism operators have been granted a total of $250,000 funding via a competitive application process co-ordinated by regional tourism authority Northern Rivers Tourism. Owners of Byron Bay Farmstay, Ivan Holland and Angela Grice, say that the funding will help add that something extra to what they already have to offer. With their $13,000 Northern Rivers Tourism grant, they will create a single-track mountainbike trail in a forest grove on their land, turning what is now just accommodation into a tourist attraction. Ivan says that in such a tourist centric area, there are opportunities to be found in unexpected places. â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;The bike track will complement the current business but will also be a standalone attractionâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;, says Ivan.

Ivan and Angela are ready to roll with a new mountain bike track planned to enhance their farmstay business.

â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;This is another great activity for people to do as part of the farmstay, and for us itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s getting into something totally new.

Changed the face of farming â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;On a broader level, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s us getting creative about how to make a living from the farm knowing that kicking back and just letting the cows run around, eventually, is not going to work. My

folks got creative 16 years ago and went for some farm accommodation; Ange and I are just going to continue the process.â&#x20AC;&#x2122; Minister for the north coast and member for Ballina Don Page will be announcing nine new tourism initiatives to receive $250,000 in funding at a Tourism Industry Forum to be held at the Byron Community Centre on Thursday. Other funds granted by the scheme include nearly $29,000

to upgrade conference facilities at the Byron Community Centre, nearly $36,000 for Byron Kombi Orientation Tours, more than $10,000 to develop and map Aboriginal cultural tours, more than $35,000 for a new airport shuttle to operate between Casino and Lismore, $40,000 for Coastal Indigenous Cultural Experiences on the Tweed Coast, $36,000 for new Eco Cruises and Kayaking Tours in Brunswick Heads, $25,000 for the development of up to three tourism packages in the Northern Rivers and $25,000 to develop new themed trails and itineraries. Ivan and Angela plan on having their new venture up and running by the end of the year and are looking forward to expanding their business. Ivan says that having a property like his in a tourist area has changed the face of farming. â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;I think farmers who have been ready to embrace it have really benefited from tourism. â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;You just have to think outside the boxâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;.

Another jumping casualty at Island Quarry Eve Jeffery

â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t jump, unless you want to become a paraplegicâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;, is the warning from Tweed Hospital emergency department director Dr Rob Davies after

yet another near miss at Byron Bayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Island Quarry. A Swedish tourist has had a very lucky escape after a quarry jump went horribly wrong. As Emma Weisglas approached the edge of the 20-metre drop on Mon-

day last week, her foot slipped on the edge of the fall and instead of landing feet first, her legs folded underneath her body and she landed in the water on her back. Ms Weisglas was taken to the

Tweed Hospital and after observation and further x-rays was told she would most likely make a full recovery. It is reported that Ms Weisglas had seen the no diving sign but thought it would be â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;okay to jumpâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;.

Byron Naturally campaign ‘a success’ However not all are convinced it has benefited locally owned businesses Simeon Michaels

While many tourist destinations around the country reported a downturn in visitor numbers over the holiday season, Byron’s chamber of commerce president (Byron United) Paul Waters says many Byron businesses reported their best Christmas in years. Mr Waters believes the upturn can be attributed largely to the Byron Naturally campaign which was screened on television throughout SE Qld and northern NSW. ‘Anyone who walked through town would have noticed the upswing in QLD number plates,’ he said. ‘The campaign targeted south-east Queensland as well as locals to encourage people to visit and sample as much of what the region has to offer as possible. We have to continue to support and promote our region; this is how Byron United can encourage customers to buy from Byron businesses.’ Brad Tom, partner in Byron Bay accounting firm Thomas Noble & Russell, agrees. ‘Our tourism and hospitality client base has increased turnover by 10 to 20 per cent. Business confidence around town has picked up.’

Campaign creator Adrian Nelson told The Echo, ‘The model, which aggregates a small investment from nearly 100 businesses, is not only effective but has helped Byron United attract the support of large industry players. Destination NSW was so impressed with the campaign it matched business investment dollar-for-dollar. ‘This is a huge coup for our region,’ he says. Beach Hotel general manager Elke van Haandel believes that the benefits trickle down throughout the region. ‘As a result of the busier trade we also increased our demand on our local suppliers and contractors of which we use hundreds. In

turn, the suppliers and contractors benefited financially from the extra tourism generated by Byron Naturally.’ However, the picture is not rosy for all businesses in town. ‘There seems to be an invisible line at the intersection of Marvell Street which tourists just won’t cross,’ says Bohotopia manager Tess Easton.

Attracting wealthy demographics She says that the benefits from increased tourist numbers are flowing almost exclusively towards the large, branded business at the top end of town. Adrian Nelson contends that

Ms Easton says that several nearby shops have closed, while others hang in the balance. ‘Every time a local business closes its doors it makes room for another franchise. ‘It’s no good whingeing about Byron becoming like every other town after it’s too late. We need the locals to support us now.’

struggling businesses should join Byron Naturally and benefit from traffic generated by its micro-sites, which provide each member with a profile including photos and video. He told The Echo, ‘For Byron Naturally to work for individual businesses, there’s only one thing to do – get involved and make it work!’ However, Ms Easton remains unconvinced. ‘Byron Naturally is attracting a wealthy demographic, and if the “beach end” of town is doing well, that’s awesome,’ she says. ‘We’re at “the local end” of town. Shops like Red Ginger, Seeta, the Conscious Cafe, Big Fish, Bohotopia and Animal Dreaming are at the heart of Byron’s uniqueness. ‘We cater for local needs, and we rely on consistent, local support in return.’

Bangalow rallies to save its club The Banglalow community has pitched in $110,000 to save the town’s club, but more is needed. The announcement comes after a group of more than eighty people attended an upbeat meeting in the A&I Hall on Wednesday night. Spokesman for the club rescue group, Brian Mackney, said it was heartening to see the solid level of support from the community who are determined not to see their 102-year-old club slip into liquidation. He says the community made three very strong points at the meeting. ‘They want to retain their club, they want their club to change, and they are prepared to dig deep to see that happen.’ On January 13 this year an administrator was appointed to the club at the request of the club’s directors who were concerned about the club’s diminishing liquidity. In a notice to creditors, the administrator Mr John Vouris advised that following initial investigations they would re-

port on the options available to them under the Corporations Act 2001. Mr Mackney says that earlier in the week, the club rescue group unveiled plans to the administrator demonstrating that sale of the club’s assets was unnecessary. A detailed submission to the administrator is required by February 13. ‘With strong community support, good management and professionally based busi-

ness practices, the club could quickly turn its fortunes around,’ he said. ‘Local accountant John Hudson outlined that the group aims to raise $300,000 through the sale of secured debenture stocks to clear the existing outstanding creditors, pay off the bank and the administrator’s costs and set the club on a new path for its members and the community.’

Mr Vouris told ABC radio on Friday that he was pleased about the robust community meeting and the pledges made. He explained that secured debenture stock is like a loan to the club by private benefactors and would need to be repaid with interest. The group will finalise their submission to the administrator over the coming week and encourages anyone who wasn’t able to attend the meeting or who wishes to participate in the debenture issue or by other means to contact John at Hudson Management Services in Bangalow on 6687 2960. Asked why the club fell into administration, Mr Mackney told The Echo, ‘Clubs across the country have struggled through changing demographics and so forth. ‘They need to re-invent themselves, and this is no different from any other club.’ ‘We’re on a tight time frame,’ says Mr Mackney. The administrators will be reconvening on February 21.

Government must act to protect fresh milk: NSW Farmers Assoc MICHAEL CURRIE FUNERALS ‘Gentle Dignity’ Affordable Funerals with the Shire’s only locally owned Funeral home Mullumbimby 15 Towers Drive, 6684 6232

“I never want to have to cross the street to avoid you.” David Runciman For the last 16 years, David’s company has manufactured blinds, security doors, screens, awnings and patio covers for homes and businesses throughout Byron Shire. He never wants to avoid a customer in the street, so he insists on first-class quality and backs up what he says. Call Dave for a quote... he’ll see you’re right!

NSW Farmers dairy chairman, Terry Toohey, has called for the federal government to save the dairy industry from the ‘reckless actions of the supermarkets which threaten to ruin the fresh milk industry in NSW’. ‘The government response to the recommendations made by the two senate inquiries into milk pricing shows a willingness to turn a blind eye to the devastating impacts of the price discounting, started by Coles, on the dairy farmers of NSW,’ said Mr Toohey. ‘It is quite clear in the dairy

industry that the actions of Coles, and other milk retailers who have followed, have forced milk processers to reduce the value of farm-gate milk to unsustainable levels.

Coles cost dairy industry $15 million ‘I am getting phone calls from dairy farmers from across NSW, who are currently under pressure to take reduced prices now, even though their milk supply contract does not end until December 2012.

‘It has been put to them quite plainly that if they do not do so, their contract will not be renewed,’ said Mr Toohey. This is on top of reductions in farm-gate milk prices that farmers have already incurred since the start of the milk discounting war in early 2011. ‘If this continues, then the trend of disappearing dairy farms seen in Queensland over the past twelve months will migrate to the local communities of NSW,’ said Mr Toohey.

showed that in just nine months from Australia Day 2011 to the start of November that the unilateral action of Coles to devalue drinking milk had cost the dairy farming industry in NSW a collective $15 million. This is a reduction in $18,500 of income for every dairy farming family across NSW. He says positive actions the government can take include directing the ACCC to actively monitor the dairy industry and making amendments to laws to ensure that the two supermarkets cannot abuse their market power.

Byron gets a beach film-screening The Byron Bay International Film Festival (BBFF) will be holding a free beachfront film screening on Thursday March 8. This will be BBFFâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s first outdoor event, and is part of the festivalâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s program. The festivalâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s media manager Rachel Bending said, â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;BBFF approached Council in October [last year] for a temporary licence to run an open-air free film screening as part of the Byron Bay International Film Festival 2012 program.â&#x20AC;&#x2122; She says, â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Despite a widely publicised history of local organisations finding â&#x20AC;&#x153;challeng-

esâ&#x20AC;? when working with Council to use this piece of land, BBFF found the process to be very straightforward and well supported by Council.â&#x20AC;&#x2122;

Well supported by Byron Council Jâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;aimee Skippon-Volke also added praise for council. â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Council has been really helpful, and see our open-air event as a valuable community event, helping reinforce Byron cultureâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;. The film, Minds In The Water, is planned for the

event and is the story of pro surfer Dave â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Rastaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; Rastovichâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s journey from Australia to the Galapagos, Tonga, Alaska and Japan to help protect dolphins, whales and their ocean environment. Along the way, he enlists a team of filmmakers, journalists, musicians, ecopirates, celebrity surfers, and even a professional mermaid, to help promote responsible stewardship of the oceans. â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;This is an important, controversial docoâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;, says Ms Bending. â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;We are awaiting confirmation from the censorship board that some of the dol-

phin slaughter shots from Taiji, Wakayama, Japan are appropriate for an open-air public screening. She says Taijiâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s annual dolphin hunt is a subject of controversy and the town faces continued pressure from protest groups. In case of wet weather, plans are to screen it at the Beach Hotel. In other news, the historic Regent Cinema in Murwillumbah has been added as a new venue for this yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s festival. Further programming and ticketing information will be available in the lead up to the festival at www.bbff.com.au.

The PR spin over Centrelink slowly becomes clearer Hans Lovejoy

The muddied waters over the Department of Human Servicesâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; decision to refurbish and install more computers at Byron Bay Centrelink is beginning to clear. Community workers raised concerns with the media that many of the jobs at the Byron office were relocated to Brunswick some time ago despite the departmentâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s media releases that spruiked improved services. The departmentâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s message also claimed that â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;no jobs will be lost,â&#x20AC;&#x2122; and that â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;there are no

changes to face-to-face services.â&#x20AC;&#x2122; Another claim was that, â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;â&#x20AC;Ś those in exceptional circumstances have always and will continue to be given immediate and personal access to support at the Byron Bay service centre.â&#x20AC;&#x2122; Community workers and Centrelink clients, however, presented a very different view. Cat Seddon, welfare officer for the Byron Community Centre, told The Echo that Monday last week, a distressed young woman with a two-year-old came in to seek assistance as she was just evicted from her Byron Bay home. The woman told Ms

Seddon that she needed Centrelinkâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s assistance straight away and was told by the Byron office that she could only have an appointment in Brunswick Heads. When The Echo asked the minister whether this would be considered an â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;exceptional circumstance,â&#x20AC;&#x2122; his spokesperson replied, â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Departmental staff would welcome more details about the reported incident to establish what happened and what assistance can be offered to the customer in question.â&#x20AC;&#x2122; They added the government is beginning a consultation with community partners to

clarify any concerns arising from the refurbishments and has offered to follow up the individual experiences. Di Mahoney from the Byron Youth Service says its staff are concerned that the changes will affect young people who already find the Centrelink system â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;fairly baffling to understand and navigate.â&#x20AC;&#x2122; She says having a â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;real person to speak to is important for young people to learn about their benefits most effectively.â&#x20AC;&#x2122; The portfolio belonged to MP Tanya Plibersek up until eight weeks ago, the ministerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s spokesperson added.

Buck$ wins court case against Council over MO Luis Feliu

Coorabell resident John Anderson, aka Fast Buck$, has won a longstanding fight against Byron Shire Council which had prevented him from developing a six-dwelling multiple occupancy (MO) on his Newes Road property. The Land and Environment Court ruled last week that councilâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s development consent for the MO, granted in July 1990, had not lapsed. Council chose not to fight the case in court, formally withdrawing from proceedings, while Mr Anderson represented himself. In his judgment, Justice Peter Biscoe said approval for the

MO had not lapsed as Mr Anderson and his contractor had carried out a substantial part of the work as required under the consent conditions. The consent required that an all-weather internal gravel road, turning circle or manoeuvring space and necessary drainage be provided for each house site, to council specifications, within two years of approval being given.

Tried for mediation Mr Anderson welcomed the decision this week, telling The Echo Council could have â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;spared us both a lot of time, money and hassleâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; by â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;simply giving me a piece of paper telling me yes, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s validâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;.

Late last year, he said he tried to have the case mediated, in light of a Council action against him over half a dozen â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;alleged cabinsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; on his 100-acre property which council had deemed illegal dwellings, but as yet no further action has been taken.

No further action â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;So it was logical we mediate as I wanted the six-dwelling MO and they wanted to close down my accommodation, so there was plenty of room for compromise there, but they fobbed me off instead,â&#x20AC;&#x2122; he said. Mr Anderson said he had spent over $1,000 and lots of time on the case but he would not apply for costs against Council.

â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;But Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m angry that staff kept telling councillors before this case went ahead that they had no power to change their mind that consent for the MO had lapsed, and that only a court could do it, which was not correct,â&#x20AC;&#x2122; he said. â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Why couldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t Council change its mind? The rules had changed after the 2005 NSW Court of Appeal ruling which lowered the bar as to what constituted commencement of work and, as a result, lots of cases across NSW were decided by councils writing to people to say they agreed the consent was still valid, after initially saying it was invalid.â&#x20AC;&#x2122; â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;This should have happened in my case.â&#x20AC;&#x2122;

Last week Simon Crean made a bid at exorcism: Kevin Rudd, he declared, would never lead the Labor party again. Well, he may be right; certainly there is a hard core who would rather elect Craig Thomson to the leadership than give it back to Rudd. But that does not mean that all of them â&#x20AC;&#x201C; even the ones in safe seats â&#x20AC;&#x201C; are rusted-on Gillard supporters. They are staring at

The only real solution is for one or the other of them to simply withdraw from the contest; but since this is not going to happen, the caucus finds itself in the position which, in chess, is called zugswang: whatever the next move is, it can only make things worse. At the moment the embattled members seem to be relying more on magic than politics: during Sundayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s marathon

Labor is staring at disaster, and ready to embrace anyone â&#x20AC;&#x201C; well, almost anyone â&#x20AC;&#x201C; who can offer even a glimmer of hope. by Mungo MacCallum disaster, and ready to embrace anyone â&#x20AC;&#x201C; well, almost anyone â&#x20AC;&#x201C; who can offer even a glimmer of hope. And realistically, Rudd is the only alternative. The other names thrown up by members of the Anyone-but-Rudd brigade include Stephen Smith, Greg Combet, Bill Shorten and Crean himself; but the first three are generational rivals for the job, each of whom would oppose the other two in a hopelessly split vote, and Crean, discarded in 2003, could only ever be considered as a stop-gap, and a pretty unattractive one at that. And the bottom line is that the polls, which are the force driving the whole push for change, show that all four of them are even less popular with the voters than Gillard. It remains a two-person contest, in which each of the rivals suffers from an almost terminal disadvantage: neither can unite the party, and while the split remains, the punters are most unlikely to vote for it.

The problem is that noone appears to be in a hurry to do so. Rudd is clearly not preparing for an immediate challenge; in a caucus of 103 he needs at least 40 definite votes to keep him in the game and he does not yet have them. But Gillard is neither brave nor strong enough for a preemptive strike, so the standoff continues as a war of leaks, propaganda and misinformation, assuring the ever-hungry media of plenty of raw material to keep the story running. It cannot be dismissed, as Gillard and her supporters seek to, as a beat-up, as mere chatter; the polls alone would see to that. They consistently show that Rudd leads Gillard by a wide margin among the general public (although not, interestingly, among Labor voters â&#x20AC;&#x201C; but then, those that are left would continue to vote Labor if the party was led by Attila the Hun). But they do not measure the chaos which another leadership coup would unleash. Some commentators now regard the return of Rudd as inevitable; under Gillard Labor is doomed, and eventually the desperate backbenchers will hold their noses and embrace Rudd as their only hope of survival. But this analysis overlooks the partyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s genius for avoiding hard decisions, or at least postponing them until it is too late. And of course, there is always the hope of a miracle. After all, Tony Abbott is campaigning for government on the promise that he can conjure $40 billion out of thin air, and provide pie in the sky thereafter. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not only Labor that believes in magic.

It didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t work then and it wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t work now.

Get your motor running on Bangalow connections against the interchange, with the chamber assisting in the costs of fliers. Over 1,000 local residents signed a petition against the interchange, which was presented to Parliament. Byron Shire Council unanimously condemned the interchange and requested its removal from the motorway plans. At a community meeting in July 2011, called by the RMS at the joint direction of local MP Don Page and the minister for roads, a 98.5 per cent majority of 200 was of the view that the interchange was not needed and they were happy to use the old highway to travel south to Ross Lane. Which by the way, after test driving today from Ross Lane interchange to

Bangalow along the existing highway via the old Tintenbar Hill, took only 7.5 minutes. What more is needed to demonstrate this strong community view that the interchange is not needed, or wanted? Even the RMS itself was once officially against an interchange because it would result in additional traffic passing through the main street of Bangalow and might attract too much traffic travelling to Byron Bay (ie using the narrow, winding Bangalow Road to get from the motorway to the coast road).

Q Bangalow’s

debate about the best option for emergency diversion of motorway traffic seems to have expanded into whether the town wants, or indeed needs, an interchange with the motorway. Indeed some are even promoting the ‘approved-but-rejected’ interchange design. It’s time to summarise the facts. The interchange design was strongly objected to in Bangalow’s submission to the minister for planning because it was intrusive, noisy, ugly, dangerous and lit nine metres above ground level 24/7. The Bangalow Chamber of Commerce, Bangalow Progress Association and resident groups campaigned vigorously

Tony claims that this report said that the provision of an interchange between Bangalow Road and the proposed motorway would result additional traffic passing through the main street of Bangalow. The report did not contain any specific detail about interchanges, much less any particular analysis of how any additional traffic might be created. Instead it focused on broad route options and issues such as land use, environment, geology, hydrology, heritage etc. I can find no reference in the report to Tony’s comment. Neither can I find

Firstly, I’d always assumed a glottal stop was a wild and crazy dance you hippies from Main Arm did on a Saturday night. Now I know better. (Nearly as embarrassing as when I discovered the Gaza strip is not a sexy dance.) Secondly, and more importantly, you’ve clarified the true meaning of both atheism and agnosticism.

specifically forbidden to think a little more broadly. I remain of the view that ramps to and from the south will not add to traffic in Bangalow’s main street. Denial of these ramps will merely direct traffic along the old substandard highway rather allowing use of the faster and safer motorway. Nonetheless the working group is to be commended on its efforts to ameliorate noise and light-spill problems. I join Tony in his exhortation to the community to let its views be known to the RMS.

sufficient information to support his claim that provision of an interchange is inconsistent with the RMS earlier thinking. It would seem to me that the brief given to his working group at the earlier public meeting should have been along the lines that an interchange with the motorway ought not create significant detriment to the village of Bangalow – an objective I support. I was unable to attend that meeting but it is easy to see how in the light of misinformation the meeting may have given support to denying all access to the motorway at Bangalow Road. Perhaps the working group could have sought clarification of its brief – in any case I doubt whether the group was

Revive the disputes resolution committee When I was on Council in 98–99 every court case was regularly reviewed by a panel of councillors sitting as the Disputes Resolution Committee. This process gave the councillors involved a grounding in legal principles, process and language. It also allowed them insight into how Council’s lawyers were performing, and a lawyer was always present. This all changed in 03, by which time Mayor Tom Wilson had already gone over to the enemy. Flimsy reasons were put forward for putting the DRC into mothballs and that’s what Council voted to do. Ever since then it has been the practice from the GM to wave some details of each case around before inviting the councillors to vote that he thereafter manage the running

of it. It evidently has not occurred to the councillors that ‘managing’ a case puts one in a strong position to influence the outcome. Nor has it occurred to them that in delegating their power to the GM in this way they might be doing a Pontius Pilate, ie passing the buck, avoiding the dirty work. In the middle of last year Jan Barham started showing some interest in reviving the committee. It became apparent that the councillors didn’t even know that it was still mentioned in the meetings procedures policy, that it had sat there unused for seven years, waiting for someone to call for its services. Later last year Cr Tabart put up a motion to resurrect the committee for the purpose of

involving councillors in compliance issues such as illegal housing. I was present when Cr Tabart’s motion was debated. I noticed that Cr Cameron voted against the motion but thought it wiser not to say anything. Cr Morrissey lacked such savvy; he also voted against, but at least volunteered his reasons: the present system was ‘working well’ and the committee would involve too much work. No, Cr Morrissey, the system is not working well and what you really meant was that you didn’t want to get involved. That’s fine and I accept that you already work hard. Hasn’t it occurred to you though that joining the committee wouldn’t be compulsory? It’s a bit arrogant to say in effect ‘I’m not interested so I’m going to prevent others from getting involved

too.’ Think again, mate. The committee system is an effective way of dealing with complex issues and heavy workloads. If readers believe that they elected their councillors to make the decisions (search warrants, orders, prosecutions, etc) and that it is a copout to leave such matters to the tender mercies of the staff, they should write to Council by February 10 urging the revival of the Disputes Resolution Committee rather than its consignment to oblivion. Your letter should be headed: ‘Submission Re Meetings Procedures Policy’. Get directly in touch with Arthur and Martha too (ie Crs Morrissey and Cameron) and put the hard word on them.

I was not personally involved in the audit, but watched from the sidelines while otherwise occupied, and may be the only person to have observed the slave-labour conditions under which the audit was cheerfully conducted by qualified and experienced personnel with long-term commitments to environmental restoration. Not one of them would dare to calculate the hourly rate for which they have worked; the result would be truly scary.

Given the questionable effectiveness of vaccines, ‘herd immunity’ is at best a myth. Logic would suggest immunity to infection would be influenced more by one’s own individual health, not someone else’s herd.

My rates notice arrived with a community update from Byron Council, trumpeting the receipt of a third award for the Tweed-Byron Bush Futures Project. This is indeed wonderful recognition for a project that has provided a model for managing urban bushland. Well-deserved praise for Council staff involved in the project is conveyed in the council newsletter, recognising that officers from Tweed and Byron councils have been instrumental in sourcing funds for the project from the NSW Environmental Trust and then steering assessment and planning and overseeing onground works. Dedicated staff have undoubtably put in unpaid overtime and spent many off-duty moments agonising over environmental issues. Central to the Bush Futures project has been a Bushland Audit, which involved the survey of more than 900ha of urban bushland to determine its condition, identify threats and recommend management actions. Works were prioritised and costed. Surveys, data collection, databasing and analysis, mapping and reporting

Vaccination debate

Can I send my heartfelt thanks to Katie Clarke and Peter McWilliam for their kind support of my pro-vaccination comments. I will not call it ‘argument’ as I have had far too many of those and am tired of ‘preaching to the ignorant’. Many people here think they know it all and have seen the research. Honestly they have! I’ll give them credit for that. But what they do not realise is that much of it is fabricated, or itself based on false or nonexisting data, and most of what is left is so seriously outdated as to no longer be relevant. In the past vaccinations had issues, but these days there are such extensive trials done that any reaction itself is rare, and as I said in my previous letter, it is usually a sign of some other

Mullumbimby QWhether it’s vaccination, pol-

itics, threats of war, drug laws, gambling, bird flu, swine flu, we have to investigate which financial powers are running the show on this planet in order to understand what we are ‘supposed’ to believe! Vaccination and the pharmaceutical drugging of our youth is a great example, unfortunately only one of so many! Katie Clarke in last week’s Echo accused me of mentioning a German study on 8,000 kids that doesn’t exist. She just can’t find the findings and googled all day. I would recommend the Journal of Food and Health amongst many other publications with the results. Easy to google too. The statement that my nonvaccinated healthy daughter only survived because she was surrounded by vaccinated kids is just laughable. It would mean that vaccinated kids don’t transfer the disease onto other children and vaccinated children can’t get it. Simply wrong. The polio vaccination some 60 years ago was a great example that this is just a myth. Andy Holm

Ocean Shores Q While Peter McWilliam (Letters, January 31) may consider ‘herd immunity’ a fact but it was actually only a theory put forward in 1933 – not for populations that had been vaccinated but for those that had been through an epidemic and gained natural immunity. The theory proposed that if 68 per cent had natural immunity there would be no raging epidemic. It has found to be of

Conspicuous cars

In Quantum Of Solace, James Bond wrecks a most fab-looking and sounding car to which I thought, wow! how cool would it be to have one – like many, not giving a thought to how others might judge me, or how others might feel judged themselves for not. After loads of hard work with a close friend, we possess two of the conspicuous cars written about in last week’s socialist letter about ‘posh motors’. Sorry to disappoint but we are also residents of Byron Bay. I believe this town is pseudo-classless. Pseudo, you ask? Yes, since I’m sure, like me, the writer of last week’s letter lives in a waterproof home while people sleep in their cars. Where’s this equality, the democratic welcoming bubble of Byron he speaks of? Both a winner and a loser, I’ve survived life on UK streets in minus ten degrees! You can, as he aptly put it, never be sure who you’re sat next to or in this case what lives they’ve had or class. I agree, the Shire does have many faults and for this we forgive.

Speaking freely on festival venue Q The two days of the commis-

sionerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s hearings into the Ocean Shores/Wooyung 660-acre site for music tourism events has been for some a time of dissent and acrimony in the Shire. The director-generalâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s report tells us that the North Byron Parklands project will generate 130 fulltime equivalent jobs. However, on checking the actual Part 3 application, I note that the director-generalâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s estimate may be conservative. The applicant states there will be 210 FTE jobs generated by the project. Either figure would make North Byron Parklands the biggest employer in Ocean Shores, and one of the biggest in the Shire. This, plus the flow-on effect of generating income and jobs, means more customers for small businesses, especially those involved in food services and tourism. This project will be of great benefit to the general economy of the town and the Shire. ics to the eastern seaboard of Australia, Fukushima radiation has thus been carried to our local area and will fall in the rain. The Sunshine Coast Daily, January 14, reported an eightfold increase in radiation levels over Caloundra and by January 29 the Fukushima radiation cloud had reached Dunedin in the south island of New Zealand, as reported by the Sunshine Coast computer club on January 29. Thus if you have been drinking north coast milk lately, or unfiltered rainwater, you will have probably been ingesting small amounts of Japanese radiation. One can take iodine supplements to protect against radioactive iodine, but protecting against caesium fallout is more difficult. Not to worry, Australian government scientists say the radiation levels are not harmful. On the other hand, radiation expert Doctor Helen Caldicott says no level of radiation is harmless. Russian media are reporting that a million Russians could die from radiation fallout if surgical strikes are made against the many Iranian nuclear facilities.

The issues raised by the local objectors to the project such as noise, traffic, flooding and especially the environment have been dealt with to the satisfaction of the Department of Planning and Infrastructure. The DPI has put in place strict conditions that have to be met with each event. The question now becomes, when will the very vocal minority in this Shire stop habitually and systematically destroying any application that generates economic benefit to our population? When will they stop using bullying and intimidation against ordinary people who disagree with them? When will government come up with a tool to accurately gauge the wishes of the silent majority? In the case of the event Splendour in the Grass, if we were able to freely ask our young people (the 30s and under) would they prefer to stop

Splendour in our shire the answer would be â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;no wayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;. Would they vote for this proposed permanent cultural event site in the north of the Shire for Splendour and other events? I think so. Have we missed some generational equity in this debate?

Israel and injustice

Palestinian villages were surrounded on three sides and the occupants invited to leave at gunpoint; many of those who resisted were shot. Five hundred villages were â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;cleansedâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; in this way and either bulldozed or colonised by Israelis. Village names were changed to traditional Jewish ones. By 1954 only 100,000 Palestinian/Israeli Arabs remained in or near their homes in Israel; the rest were dead or in refugee camps in Lebanon or Jordan. I am not suggesting that Israel is the only country that sanitises its history â&#x20AC;&#x201C; they all do it â&#x20AC;&#x201C; but Israel has put the most effort into it and is by far the most successful. The USA, supported by its little mate, has been totally complicit in this deception from the very beginning. If Vicâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s computer replies to this letter I shall not be responding but urge readers to research the history (not the Israeli version) for themselves. Start by viewing The Promise and reading Gaza in Crisis by Noam Chomsky and Ilan Pappe.

As expected/invited, Vic Alhadeff has produced a somewhat off-target reply (Letters, January 31) to my earlier letter on the attempted banning of the TV series The Promise. Vicâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s lobby organisation replies to so many letters like mine that I suspect they are produced by a computer. As public awareness slowly grows on the historical record of Israel and the appalling ongoing injustices, the Israel lobby groups are not inclined to argue the facts but rely on denial, political influence and accusations of anti-Semitism. In the historical context I cite just a couple of events which I am sure do not appear in Israeli schoolsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; curricula. In a 1937 letter to his son the â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Father of the Israeli stateâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; BenGurion said, â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;We must expel Arabs and take their places... and if we have to use force â&#x20AC;&#x201C; not to dispossess the Arabs of the Negev and Transjordan, but to guarantee our own right to settle those places â&#x20AC;&#x201C; then we have force at our disposal.â&#x20AC;&#x2122; He repeated this belief many times to his Mapai party up to 1948 and it has been pursued by all Israeli administrations to the Peter Olson present day. Goonengerry In 1949 when the UN resolution dividing the Palestine mandate territory came into force the 660,000 Jews got 56 per cent of the land and the 1,340,000 Arabs got the rest (now only 15 per cent).

He said the land at Yelgun was a firetrap with peat below and tea trees that burn with toxic smoke. The odds of 30,000 people at a festival with half of those camping on the site accidentally dropping a match or somehow sparking a wildfire is very high. The fire service would not be equipped to rescue them or stop it from endangering our homes. We also heard about floods and how difficult it would be to get 30,000 people to safely evacuate in case of flash flood. My grandchildren are all for Splendour and might even want one of those â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;promisedâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; 100 jobs, but to put the staff and participants at risk of floods or fires would be negligent.

Fair Work win

I am writing to congratulate union members across the country on our recent win in Fair Work Australia. On February 1 a long-awaited decision to grant equal pay to community services workers was handed down. This will see wage rises in the order of 19â&#x20AC;&#x201C;41 per cent in the sector, phased in over the coming years. The case was brought to FWA by unions from across the country with our own NSW branch of the ASU playing a key role in its complex and protracted proceedings. The full decision can be found on the FWA website and makes for interesting reading. In recognising the undervaluation of this work, FWA awarded the first Equal Remuneration Order granted on the basis of gender since equal pay for women was notionally won in 1972. Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s 40 years of sector struggle, agitation and commitment from a procession of union members across an entire generation. What a feat! And make no mistake it is union members â&#x20AC;&#x201C; who pay their dues and believe in the power of the collective in the workplace â&#x20AC;&#x201C; that this victory belongs to. For those nonmembers in the sector I have one message only. Join your union now and share in the celebration that contribution brings. To all the stalwart longterm members and new members alike, well done sisters, brothers, comrades â&#x20AC;&#x201C; this recognition has been a long time coming. Thank you for your vision and persistence. Punita Boardman

Me and my unlucky ovaries – a story of infertility Claire Lovejoy Lopes dos Santos to a vengeful god only makes

Infertility sucks. There, I said it. In my case I knew we had problems early on but we were so broke there was no way we could afford the costs of pursuing it so I put it off for a few years and didn’t get to an IVF doctor until I was nearly 35, which is old in fertility terms. Not as bad as 40 but still not good. When I realised that this was the only way we were going to get pregnant, I have to confess that I nearly succumbed to the anti-feminist attitude that God was punishing me for avoiding getting pregnant in my prime child-bearing years and putting my own selfish needs first (like a relationship and job stability I suppose). The fact that I even ascribed the punishment

it weirder coz I’m an atheist. What makes it worse of course is that it is still such a taboo subject; there is no national health program to encourage people to see a doctor if they are trying to conceive and can’t. When you realise you are having fertility issues you feel like a failure because you can’t do what every bogan manages from the age of 16: reproduce. I was determined to be open about our issues, even though my husband Nei would have preferred I didn’t. I just wanted to give honest answers to people who asked about when we were going to have kids, ‘I don’t know, we have been trying for five years but can’t afford to go to a fertility doctor yet so maybe we can’t have kids at all, I’ll get back to you

I was extremely lucky with the pregnancy as it went very smoothly and I didn’t develop any of the potential complications someone my age and pre-pregnancy weight usually would, like gestational diabetes, high blood pressure or haemorrhoids (OMG! TMI! LOL!). I have to confess I was a picture of glowing pregnancy smugness, until about the last month when I could barely move, but that wasn’t too bad either as we had a TV in our bedroom at the time. Who knew the ladies on The View were so intelligent and informative? Okay, maybe I did develop one pregnancy complication: chronic IQ deficiency.

Be honest My advice to anyone who is discovering that they may have fertility issues is to be open and honest about it. The more people do that the less isolated others will feel when it happens to them until eventually it will be like needing to get your wisdom teeth out: not everyone has to have it done but no-one feels ashamed about it if they do. I may be overreaching in my vision there but wouldn’t it be nice? The fact is that it is too taboo to discuss and financially so overwhelming that few people know what to expect until they go through it. We had our treatments in Queensland and each cycle cost us about $3,000 (after Medicare and private health rebates). Additionally, we were required to pay the entire amount of $6,700 upfront each time, so we needed to borrow that. If I’m envisioning a world where people aren’t ashamed of having fertility issues I may as well wish for one where the costs are covered entirely by Medicare. I’m such a dreamer.

ValentinesDay Life in a Love A Red, Red Rose O my luve’s like a red, red rose. That’s newly sprung in June; O my luve’s like a melodie That’s sweetly play’d in tune.

Love And in Life’s noisiest hour, There whispers still the ceaseless Love of Thee, The heart’s Self-solace and soliloquy. You mould my Hopes, you fashion me within ; And to the leading Love-throb in the Heart Thro’ all my Being, thro’ my pulse’s beat ; You lie in all my many Thoughts, like Light, Like the fair light of Dawn, or summer Eve On rippling Stream, or cloud-reflecting Lake. And looking to the Heaven, that bends above you, How oft! I bless the Lot that made me love you. – Samuel Taylor Coleridge

As fair art thou, my bonnie lass, So deep in luve am I; And I will love thee still, my Dear, Till a’the seas gang dry. Till a’ the seas gang dry, my Dear, And the rocks melt wi’ the sun: I will luve thee still, my Dear, While the sands o’life shall run.

A book of verse, underneath the bough, A jug of wine, a loaf of bread – and thou Beside me singing in the wilderness – Ah, wilderness were paradise now!

It is but to keep the nerves at strain, To dry one’s eyes and laugh at a fall, And baffled, get up to begin again,— So the chase takes up one’s life, that’s all. While, look but once from your farthest bound, At me so deep in the dust and dark, No sooner the old hope drops to ground Than a new one, straight to the selfsame mark, I shape me— Ever Removed!

– Omar Khayyam

– Robert Browning

And fare thee weel my only Luve! And fare thee weel a while! And I will come again, my Luve, Tho’ it were ten thousand mile! – Robert Burns

After fronting Butterfingers, how are you enjoying working solo? Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s great. Different but great. Thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s definitely a certain amount of readjusting to do when you start taking responsibility for everything that is going on around you, which does tend to add stress, but at the same time the freedom is awesome. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s like starting afresh but Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m glad Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve got the history of Butterfingers behind me to help people connect with what Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m doing now, of course. What are the new fringe benefits? There is a greater sense of achievement when you really nail a song or a gig or whatever, I suppose because youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re responsible for it all from the ground up. With a group you kind of spread it around. Less work, fewer rewards. The downside? Well I thought Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d miss the camaraderie of a group situation but the guys in the band that tour with me, who were friends before, have become quite close and I seem to have found a balance. The best of both worlds as it were. Starting again though is kinda hard. All that re-branding; but whatever, I knew what I was getting myself into.

Whatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s with the Evil Eddie business? Is that a moniker earned from girlfriends perhapsâ&#x20AC;Ś or their mothers? The truth of it is that I used to work at the iconic Brissy venue â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;The Zooâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; as glassy/ bartender/ratbag and there were two of us on the staff at the time called Eddie. I got â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Evilâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; Eddie just to distinguish between us. Lord knows why; I was such a saint back then. Are we still up for hip hop punk and things a little left of centre? Definitely. I guess Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m leaning more and more towards the hip hop side of things but mixing it up is my whole schtick. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d be hard to bury that completely. If other people from any of the other bands I play in, or have played in, are in the vicinity of a gig Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll usually try to incorporate some of that material into the set as well, so who knows whatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll come out. What should we be expecting for your Byron show? Cannon, fireworks, nudity, a little music, all the usual stuff. Oh yeah, Rainman and Calski are gunna be there too. Byron extravaganzee.

SEVEN SPOKE WITH IAN MOSS, STILL RIDING ON A HIGH AFTER THEIR MASSIVE NATIONAL TOUR LAST YEAR, PULLING MASSIVE CROWDS WHEREVER THEY WENT. What prompted you to launch the biggest tour in nearly 30 years last year? We got together for one show in 2009, and liked the way that went, enough to begin planning a national tour. It took two years in the planning, and we did some writing and recording in that time. How do you think Cold Chisel has managed to not just maintain their fan base but to grow it? We donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t really have â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;fansâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;. Some people want a certain thing, and know that weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re one of the places they can reliably get it. When you are preparing for that kind of show, how do you marry nostalgia with the now when it comes to set lists and song choices? Nostalgia isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t part of what we do. We pick songs weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re going to enjoy playing, keeping an eye on the fact weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re a rock and roll band and itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s good to keep things moving. What is it about the combination of Ian Moss, Jimmy Barnes, Don Walker and Phil Small that sets it apart? We spent our youth together, and forged a certain musical chemistry â&#x20AC;&#x201C; nothing special about that, lots of bands do that. Among the four of us are some who are uniquely good at what they do, so maybe thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s it. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve never thought to ask but what actually is a â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Cold Chiselâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;? I could say a tool that hangs in Bunnings for too long, but I wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t.

The Byron Shire Echo February 7, 2012 19


Young People Talk About Sex This weekend at the Sex and Consciousness Conference, young people get a chance to give voice to the issues around sexuality and intimacy. Convened by educator and author Amrita Hobbs, Youthspeak is the genesis of ideas that came out of the original event held in Woodford a few years ago. According to Amrita, the aim of Youthspeak is to ‘give young people a voice so that they can hear from each other and sometimes speak the unspeakable themselves in public in a really safe place’. The panel comprises six young people between 21 and 24 and hail from Byron, Melbourne and the Gold Coast. They have been hand-chosen by Amrita because ‘I know they are articulate, they have integrity and they are able to be authentic. They are walking their talk as best we all can and they all have a beautiful rapport with each other.’ ‘Each of the young people has their own particular theme,’ says Amrita. ‘One is how young people feel let down by adults because we don’t prepare them and educate them in ways that are always are helpful; we may not be good role models for them. Another one is how can we understand gender differences so we can get on better; another is about romance versus lust. They have a few minutes to speak and then we open it to the floor. The emphasis for Youthspeak is on the interaction rather than the panel; they open the floor for young people to have the conversations.’ Amrita believes the power in the forum is allowing young people to set their own agenda without answering to any specific adult-assigned topics on issues or values. She believes the young people are prepared to go in deep, and in a world where sexual messages are about pornography and over-sexualisation, many young people crave something more meaningful. ‘When we were in Woodford, this boy said, “I want to know how to worship a woman”. He was just 14 years old!’ As an educator Amrita believes we have a lot to learn from native cultures that include initiations for their young people to mark the passage into adulthood.

case a temporary name that wasn’t meant to last beyond one bottom-of-the-bill gig.

2011 was a tough year for Cold Chisel with Steve Prestwich dying in the January; how has that affected or informed your live shows through the rest of that year? Steve’s passing a little over a year ago stopped everything. We didn’t know for some months if we’d ever do anything again. Around mid-year we began trying to put what we do back together with Charley Drayton playing drums. That involved a lot of detailed work, especially between Phil, myself and Charley. A lot of thanks for the success of that goes to Charley. Your songs are so distinctly Australian; do you think that has made it hard over the years to break an international market? We went to America once and toured for a month and a half, June to August 1981. No-one breaks America like that no matter what they’re singing about. How important is it, do you believe, that bands forget about overseas and start telling Aussie stories about place and people? Bands should do what they like. Singing about what you know is no impediment to making it anywhere, so long as it’s done well. It never held Bob Marley back, or the Beatles. Youssou N’Dour doesn’t sing about Europe, but he sells a lot of records and tickets in Europe. McKinley Morganfield sang about Chicago, but was loved everywhere. What should fans be expecting for a 2012 Bluesfest Chisel show? Some rock and roll, in the original sense of the phrase, and a rare dose of blues. For line-up and ticketing info go to www.bluesfest.com.au.

‘My visioning is that we become more of an initiation culture, where we have a process for the men and the women. Our culture doesn’t offer anything like that; sex education is biological, not spiritual or physical and they miss out on all the juicy bits. My personal work is to move towards more of that in our community and our culture.’ This year Amrita will be offering a one-year program through Youthspeak called ‘Sex – What They Don’t Teach You at School’. She is engaging local teachers and educators who can talk about subjects that may not be addressed in more conventional programs, like masculinity, femininity, how to connect intimately through communication. It will be presented through a series of one-day workshops. Amrita recalled the story of a young man who had embarked on his sexual odyssey with flair. ‘I met one young man who was a Steiner kid in England; he kept asking his dad for money, and his dad asked what for, and he’d keep saying it was for chocolate. His dad asked what he was doing with the chocolate. He said, ‘we are painting each other’s body and licking it off!’ They weren’t having sex! It took them a long time to get around to having sex because they were enjoying the chocolate so much.’ Young people are invited to attend the free Youth Speak Forum on Saturday at the Byron Bay Community Centre at 1.30pm. The target group is 14–24-year-olds. Adults are also invited but asked to keep in mind that this is a forum for youth and they will be seated behind the young people.

GET A WHIFF OF THIS A few weeks back federal member for Brisbane and citizenship spokeswoman for the coalition, Teresa Gambaro, told The Australia that she believed migrants should be taught about the importance of wearing deodorant and waiting in queues without pushing in. In this rather extraordinary claim Ms Gambaro went on to say she was concerned that new Australians were failing to integrate because they hadn’t been brought up to speed on the cultural issues related to health, hygiene and lifestyle. It seems Ms Gambaro feels we need to Aussie-fy our newcomers to make them more acceptable to the general community. I’ve never been out sniffing new Australians like Ms Gambaro seems to have been, but I think it’s a little broad and very rude to make the assumption that they’re all on the nose. These are the kind of culturally ignorant people who believe that their cultural values

reflect some sort of norm. The world is a smelly place. Humans are born fresh and wonderful and then they start to compost. I remember the wog kid at school who got tormented for having a salami and eggplant sandwich with a side of garlic bread. He was tormented for having a weird lunch. The smell of his lunch set him apart. He needed to be destroyed by the white-bread-and-Vegemite kids, lest their world of Arnott’s biscuits and bruised bananas (tell me banana in a lunch box isn’t offensive) be turned on its head. But we evolved. Our stinky migrant brothers and sisters have educated us. Our food has evolved. We now eat Spag Bog and think it’s an Aussie dish. What was once stinky and disgusting is now considered part of our everyday cuisine. What was repulsive to our olfactory senses is now delicious. Everything smells. The wog kid’s sandwich only smelt bad because we didn’t recognise it. It was just a smell that fell outside of our cultural norms of beer, Pal Meaty Bites and Vegemite. I’ve certainly been in the presence of people who could have done with a little deodorising help. But they weren’t new stinky-Stralians. They were organic-loving chemical-free vegans emerging from a yoga class. And they kind of smelt good, in a thick pheromone-y kind of should-I-breed-with-you kind of way.

Personally I quite like the smell of my own armpit. There’s something quite erogenous about working up a good sweat, and busting out in some of your own personal stench. It’s poor etiquette to get a whiff of your own armpits and be so impressed that you’ll go back for more. But who hasn’t done it? It’s up there with wanking and nose picking as one of the private pleasures of inhabiting this beastly human form. Why do we assume that chemical inhibitors are better than none? So it’s okay to get a whiff of someone’s antiperspirant, or their perfume, but normal organic human stink is not okay. Our smell is our etheric fingerprint. It’s how we identify each other on a ‘smellular’ level. This whole concept, though, of teaching migrants Australian norms is ridiculous. Instead of housing, or education, do we just offer some Rexona? Perhaps what we need to invent is a roll-on moronic-bigoted-thinking retardant for the general population who think migrants smell, and we could start by dropping a crate at Gambaro’s place.

After two widely acclaimed EPs, there is much anticipation for the debut album from Sydney-based fourpiece Magnetic Heads. The band (which has been compared to the Go Betweens, The Talking Heads and Echo & The Bunnymen) has spent the bright Australian summer writing and will be recording their first full-length in March of 2012 – scheduled for a release this September. The Maple Trail will release their latest album Cable Mount Warning in March 2012. With Cable Mount Warning, The Maple Trail charges forth in a calamitous chorus of epic, introspective, yet summery folk songs that take you down a dark winding path before throwing you into the light. Broken Stone Records will also hold a free all-ages artist-to-artist talk on Saturday at Mullumbimby Rock’n’Roll Coffee Company. The discussion sessions will also be accompanied by a live acoustic performance and BSR artists will share their experiences in selfrecording and production with audiences, providing an insight into the use of digital technology and analog techniques to selfproduce music. This is a great opportunity for local musicians to find out more about the ‘DIY’ approach to recording and releasing music.

NEXT WEEKEND MULLUMBIMBY HOSTS THE FIRST SPIRIT FESTIVAL. PRACTITIONERS, YOGIS, DANCE TEACHERS AND SPIRITUAL MASTERS GATHER FROM AROUND THE GLOBE; BUT BEFORE WE SHINE THE LIGHT ON THEM, PERHAPS WE SHOULD FOCUS ON OUR VERY OWN INTERNATIONALLY ACCLAIMED YOGI, LOUISA SEAR.

lot of people make judgments of what yoga is, by its teachers and what they teach, and practitioners of yoga who may not yet fully understand or misinterpret the essential teaching. Also one of the main misconceptions is people think that to practise yoga you need to be ‘detached’ from worldly things, emotions and feelings. As a teacher, what is it that you offer to your students? I hope to offer only what I have experienced and know from my practice/life. This sharing of an understanding of knowledge, or truth, has been around since the beginning of time. As yoga teachers we share this in a particular form, but there are many other forms it is shared What is it about yoga that first of one’s ability; this is a moment-to in. moment-practice.

What is it about your particular What do you think are the major approach that is unique and being sought all over the world? misconceptions people have I would say that the Yoga Arts with regards to yoga? I guess people think that it is purely some approach is to really bring yoga form of exercise, and others think into our life, so it is OUR life, that is like a religion, and also a encouraging living in connected

presence with ourselves. We are more concerned with using tools that support this, instead of focusing on historical information and complex philosophical terms that many do not understand. In our training we teach the methodology of asana and pranayama and all other yogic techniques to be understood and practised for the individual. We emphasise knowing oneself; from this place greater understanding is experienced and from this place one can go out in the world and share what they have learnt. We have a comprehensive curriculum in all aspects of yoga. Tell me about Yoga Arts – what is the organisation and what role does it play? Yoga Arts now is a small team of dedicated teachers, who have many years of practice and teaching experience behind them. We all have a passion for truth and have all experienced the benefits of practising certain yogic tools. We have also learnt from practising in ways that have not been beneficial, so we can now guide our students from our firsthand experience. When I first started yoga and teaching there was not much yoga happening in Australia and the rest of the western world. So I began to practise, not fully understanding what I was doing. At Yoga Arts we hope to be able to guide students so they can grasp the understanding much quicker without having to make the same mistakes that I made. The role we play I do not know exactly, but we aim for it to be a supportive framework through the courses, to guide students. How do you marry being a businesswoman and a yogi? It can be a constant challenge at times, as earning a livelihood is necessary, so it is always finding a balance that serves me. I am fortunate that my work is my love. I make sure that I have enough time for my own practice and evaluate all the time how much I can do without losing myself. It is a constant learning experience, and now I have simplified a lot, I say No to many seeming opportunities, and teach only a few courses and retreats a year. I feel more authentic, if I can manage myself in the most optimum way – then I have much more to share and give from this place.

To the best of my ability I run my business with the ethics and integrity of yogic principles. I have always said that running this business has been one of the most profound spiritual experiences, because you have to deal with so many things in business and deal with so many people on different levels, so it has been a great opportunity for the latent old beliefs and states of mind to arise. Business is a part of life, whether you work for yourself or for someone else, it is not separate from yoga, so whatever one does in life, even be it business, that this state of yoga/union is aimed at. Is meditation always easy for you? What are the benefits of a still mind? No, meditation is not always easy for me. Sometimes easy, sometimes challenging, this fluctuates all the time, this is the nature of the mind. And a key to this is not to focus on whether it is challenging or easy but just to be with what is. A still mind is essential for peace and to be free from suffering. I am not talking about the functional mind that we need to live our daily life and to go about our business. But the finite mind that can be constantly distracted with repetitive old dialogue. There are many different practices of meditation; any that will support you in stilling the mind is good (not distracting). Eventually meditation is aimed at being in the living of life in every moment. What will you be presenting as part of the Spirit Festival? I will be teaching an Asana class, focusing on breath and stillness in motion, encouraging everyone to work to their own levels and needs. Friday 17 to Sunday 19 February in Mullumbimby.

Award-winning and innovative choreographer Jill Parker has been called the ‘founder of the modern tribal fusion belly dance movement’. She has taught many tribal fusion icons, including Rachel Brice, and will perform for one night only at Ocean Shores Community Centre this Saturday. Flaunting tattoos, a nose-ring, sometimes flowers in her hair or 1920s-inspired beaded headdress, Jill is not your typical belly dancer. Tribal is a somewhat edgy form of bellydance that melds ancient moves with modern music and stylings – it’s ‘anything goes’, which can result JILL PARKER PERFORMS ILLUMINA in quite stunning and original costuming and delightfully unexpected pairings of music and movement.

2012 Istanbul Olympiad. Aronian will, however, soon disappear to an isolated location to commence a lengthy training camp. The Armenian has agreed to take on world number three Vladimir Kramnik in a head-to-head match in April and he will need plenty of new ideas such as he showed in the following game.

Levon Aronian has shown that Magnus Carlsen’s world number one ranking may not be safe for long by convincingly winning the first super-tournament of 2012, the 74th Tata tournament in Wijk aan Zee, the Netherlands. Aronian’s third Wijk aan Zee title, winning twice as many games as all but three of his rivals, was described by the Armenian as the best result of his career and generated superlatives from both commentators and fellow Grandmasters alike. Carlsen, battling some erratic form, had to be content with a share of second prize. Apart from the 10,000 Euro first prize, Aronian pushed his world ranking to a new high, close behind Carlsen and at a level only ever achieved by two players, Carlsen and Garry Kasparov. Aronian’s girlfriend, Australian Olympic player Arianne Caoili (pictured right with Levon), also triumphed in Wijk aan Zee, winning one of the tienkampen which take place alongside the

Chronicle What eventuates when super powers are bestowed on a crazy mixed-up bullied kid from the â&#x20AC;&#x2122;burbs who is regularly the victim of a toxic relationship with his abusive father? To quote the dishonourable leader of the opposition, â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;shit happensâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; is what. Andrew (Dane DeHaan), his older cousin Matt (Alex Russell) and their

coloured high-school mate Steve (Michael B Jordan) leave a warehouse rave to scramble down a deep hole in a nearby field. They discover a giant crystal that enables them to do superhuman telekinetic stuff and, ultimately, to fly. Where the crystal came from and what itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s doing there is never explained â&#x20AC;&#x201C; nor is Mattâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s recurring nosebleed when something happens to one of the others â&#x20AC;&#x201C; but it

doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t matter. The fundamental black-and-white moral question being posed is enough to smooth over any such cracks in the script. Shot in the style of Blair Witch and Cloverfield, with Andrewâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s and, on a few occasions, Caseyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s (Ashley Hinshaw) camera providing the shuddering POV, the story is slammed into full throttle at the outset by an urgent edit that infuses it with riveting immediacy. At first the guys are content to goof around in the supermarket with their new skills, but Andrew soon relishes the ego boost they provide and, more sinister, discovers that vengeance can be an equally satisfying and justifiable outlet for his strengths. Philosophy (the amoral primacy of Darwinism) and pop psychology (the brutish dad, the dying mum, a humiliating first-time sexual encounter), if not delved too deeply into, are thoughtfully acknowledged, as is the awareness of alienation that can so disastrously take root in the fertile soil of mob youth culture. It gets silly towards the end, what with explosions and the boys smashing through walls etc, but remembering that its target audience feels jilted without such climaxes â&#x20AC;&#x201C; keep your eye on the big statue of the Indian with his bow and arrow, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a killer! â&#x20AC;&#x201C; the over-the-top shenanigans are acceptable. This is a ripper. â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Likeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;. ~ John Campbell

The Skin I Live In First you will notice that this is not a film by Pedro AlmodĂłvar, but simply by AlmodĂłvar, the brand-name. Hubris. Is no-one above it? The movie deals with the great directorâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s familiar, and by now anticipated obsessions with sexuality and the mother/ son relationship, but in a story that is more macabre than credibility might countenance.

Robert Ledgard (Antonio Banderas) pushes the envelope of convention in his creation of new identities (his carâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s numberplate is FCB â&#x20AC;&#x201C; surely no mere coincidence?). Imprisoned in his mansion is Vera (Elena Anaya), a work in progress whose beauty mirrors that of the unfaithful wife that Robert lost after a car accident. The echo of Hitchcock/du Maurierâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Rebeccaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; is strengthened by his mother Marilia (Marisa Paredes), a presence of Mrs Danvers-like malevolence. The Spanish genius for the surreal is given free reign when Robertâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s half-brother Zeca (a perfectly repulsive Roberto Ă lamo) appears in a tiger suit and rapes Vera. Because the narrative at this point threatens to plunge from the bizarre to the mystifying, a belated time jump of six years allows us to witness the meeting at a wedding of Robertâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s fragile daughter Norma (Blanca SuĂĄrez) and party-boy Vicente (Jan Cornet). Its upshot will ultimately reveal who Vera is and why Robert has kept her against her will for so long. It is a dark and fantastical tale, but one that demands a leap into an emotional landscape that I was unable to make. Robertâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s weird and reprehensible practices are not the issue â&#x20AC;&#x201C; as a kinky Dr Frankenstein, he is no odder than Hannibal Lecter and a score of cinema psychos â&#x20AC;&#x201C; what I found incomprehensible was that, given their bitter circumstances, Robert could possibly feel the sexual desire that he did for Vera. Confused rather than confusing and lacking the heart of 2002â&#x20AC;&#x2122;s luminous â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Talk To Herâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;, the intended poignancy of the closing scene is nobbled by there being no sympathetic characters involved beforehand. Nevertheless, even at his most indulgent, Pedro AlmodĂłvar is always provocative and dreamlike. ~ John Campbell

1. Mia Farrow is fabulous as the possessed mother-tobe in Roman Polanski’s classic horror film Rosemary’s Baby (ABC2, Saturday, 8.30pm). The Roman Catholic church’s obsession with God’s bad angel has certainly helped create some memorable cinema. 2. The first in The Mummy franchise (7Mate, Sunday, 6.30pm) is certainly the best, with Rachel Weisz and Brendan Fraser mugging along to the CGI splendidly. Now if we could combine the obsessions of the Christians and the ancient Egyptians... 3. It’s hard to believe but images of Muriel’s Wedding (Gem, Sunday, 8.30pm) have all but disappeared from Google. This wonderfully cheesy Australian comedy helped kickstart the careers of Rachel Griffiths and Toni Collette. The script was inspired in part by the antics of director P J Hogan’s Tweed Councillor father, and nothing much has changed up Tweed way since the movie was made in 1999. Inquiries and administrations come and go, but the moolah marches on.

chefs might be in the business of hospitality, they donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t often get to see people enjoying the food theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve prepared. They donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t get to linger over a pot of simmering stew, glass of wine in handâ&#x20AC;Ś Home cooking brings spontaneity and whimsy and the freedom to cook according to your own desiresâ&#x20AC;Ś I discovered what I loved: cooking for my friends and family and sharing the bounty of the table together.â&#x20AC;&#x2122; Cooking professionally can leach out the joy of the very act â&#x20AC;&#x201C; as well as your love and passion for it. Shows like Master Chef may continue, nauseatingly, to be referred to as â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;phenomenaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; and have apparently provided big boosts to enrolments at culinary institutes, but the reality is that there is vey little glamour in the industry â&#x20AC;&#x201C; glamour and pleasure. It is monotonous and repetitive and stressful and exhausting; at a certain point the food you prepare ceases to be something edible but the mere material for your construction. There is rarely time to enjoy the sensuality of cooking â&#x20AC;&#x201C; touch and smell and taste â&#x20AC;&#x201C; when itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s all being swallowed up in the sweat and the steam and the tension and the noise of a frenzied workplace. Of course there are, for many, enormous satisfactions to be had, not least the rush of adrenalin, the sense you are a player on a stage. But as Lauren Shockey and others have discovered, it is hard hard hard. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m not sure why, but when I finished reading her book I thought about those cooks or producers who label their products â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Made with loveâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; â&#x20AC;&#x201C; I even read an article recently about a cafĂŠ where everything is â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;made with loveâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m sorry, but this strikes me as disingenuous â&#x20AC;&#x201C; as soon as you go commercial, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s just about hard work, and a hell of a lot of monotonous repetition. Four Kitchens â&#x20AC;&#x201C; My Life Behind the Burner in New York, Hanoi, Tel Aviv, and Paris â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Lauren Shockey. Hachette.

I have just finished reading a book called Four Kitchens. In it, chef/author Lauren Shockey describes her experiences over the course of one year in New York, Hanoi, Tel Aviv and Paris, cooking in restaurants. Having completed a course at the French Culinary Institute in her home-town of New York she decides to apply for various kitchen positions around the works as a â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;stagiaireâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;, or (generally unpaid) apprentice. The first â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;stageâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; is at wdâ&#x20AC;&#x201C;50, the much-lauded molecular gastronomy restaurant of chef Wylie Dufresne where â&#x20AC;&#x201C; despite my inability throughout the book to warm to her â&#x20AC;&#x201C; she earns my approval by concluding that the type of experimental cuisine it goes in for is â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;a lot like a party trick: exciting the first time you see it, but far less mesmerising once the original novelty has worn off â&#x20AC;&#x2122;. (I recently read someone describe molecular gastronomy as soulless â&#x20AC;&#x201C; which hits the nail on the head.) Next Lauren heads to Vietnam because she had fallen in love with its food in New York and wants to learn how to make it; here she is taken on at a top French restaurant where she finds the experience much more laidback and enjoyable. Then â&#x20AC;&#x201C; given her Jewish ancestry â&#x20AC;&#x201C; she ends up in Tel Aviv â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;because I figured it might nourish me, professionally and spirituallyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;. And finally she lands a place at the two-Michelin-starred establishment Senderens, where she is, along with the other 30-odd staff, required to wear a toque, where much of her time is spent cleaning and preparing vast quantities of crabs, and where she is subjected to mild sexual harassment in the maledominated kitchen. Lauren works incredibly hard â&#x20AC;&#x201C; for no pay at all â&#x20AC;&#x201C; but learns a great deal about cooking, and food, and restaurant life. What she mostly learns is that restaurant cooking is not for her. â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Perhaps the greatest kitchen lesson I absorbedâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;, she says, â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;was thatâ&#x20AC;Ś at the end of the day I loved home cooking. If youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re working in a restaurant you never get to do itâ&#x20AC;Ś I came to realise that although restaurant

Australian Surf Rowers League (ASRL) series and to show their support of the valuable work that volunteer surf lifesavers do, one surf lifesaving club has opportunity to the makeover valued at $20,000. ‘The Australian Surf Rower League and Navy share mutual values of effective team work’, says spokesperson Commodore David Letts. ‘As the Navy protects the Australian coastline, the Australian Surf Rowers League protects the shores of every state and territory around the country. ‘By nurturing the sport and surf lifesaving clubs, Navy can provide them with the necessary resources to assist them in recruiting lifesavers. The more lifesavers are in the water, the more lives can potentially be saved’. Players of the online game nominate a club to represent

then have to rescue as many swimmers as possible by steering a surf boat around obstacles like reefs, buoys and dolphins. All clubs go into the draw to win the makeover and then every swimmer that players save for their club adds another entry to the draw for their nominated club. The more swimmers they save, the greater their club’s chance of winning. Players can play the game once a day, every day, to help their club win. Players can also post a challenge to Facebook friends to beat their scores and nominate friends to help their club rescue more swimmers. Individuals can win a $750 voucher JB HiFi for themselves. The address of the Navy ASRL Facebook page is http:// apps.facebook.com/surfboatrescue.

Buddhist Teaching Come and enjoy an informative and stimulating workshop with Siddhartha’s Intent Australia’s resident Buddhist educator Jakob Leschly. On Saturday Jakob will present a teaching on Choosing the Causes of Happiness and Freedom. We can discover happiness and freedom beyond our ordinary limitations by working constructively with, and mastering, our present attitudes and actions. This mastery is neither exclusive to some people ‘who just have it’, nor is it due to supernatural powers. Rather, according to the Buddha, it comes from becoming aware of, and working with, our existing internal and external conditions. Buddhist knowledge and meditation provides the insight and freedom to work with these conditions. This introductory workshop will offer a theoretical overview in the morning and the practical foundations of meditation in the afternoon. On Sunday Jakob will explore the Practice of the Buddha Sadhana. The Tibetan sage Mipam Rinpoche (1846–1912) wrote a beautiful sadhana that commemorates the Buddha, and Kyabje Dilgo Khyentse Rinpoche (1910–1991) wrote an explanation of it that includes teachings on the stages of shamatha – or mindfulness meditation. In addition to providing general and specific instruction on the practice of mindfulness and insight meditation, there will be instruction on this particular practice. This workshop will also allow for group practice of the Buddha Sadhana, with time for questions and discussion. 10am – 4pm at 1/22 Fawcett St, Brunswick Heads. $60 per day or $45 concession or $100 for both days and $75 concession.

HIA Trades Report highlights need for reform The latest HIA Trades Report, a survey of the Housing Industry Associationâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s builder and subcontractor members, confirms ongoing weakness in the housing industry throughout 2011. â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Last year there was a deterioration in new home building while the renovations market flattened out,â&#x20AC;&#x2122; said HIA Chief Economist, Dr Harley Dale. â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;In this environment, which was partly driven by weak demand conditions, it is not surprising that some of the pressure on the availability of skilled labour was temporarily reduced. â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Even with new home building activity falling markedly, the easing in trade availability was modest in 2011. Indeed three skilled trades, bricklaying, ceramic tiling, and electrical, continued to experience relatively tight availability throughout last year. â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;There are a multitude of supply-side constraints which if left unaddressed will hinder the prospects for a sizeable and sus-

tainable recovery in residential building activity. A structural shortage of skilled residential tradespeople is clearly one of those constraints. â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Now, during softer housing conditions, is precisely the time to be accelerating policy solutions to address this structural labour shortage.â&#x20AC;&#x2122; The HIA Trade Availability Index registered +0.04 in the December 2011 quarter, meaning that trades remained in moderate oversupply for a third

consecutive quarter (a reading below zero signals undersupply). Meanwhile the HIA Trade Prices Index displayed another benign result at the end of last year, easing by 0.7 per cent to be down by 0.4 per cent when compared to the December 2010 quarter. HIA executive director, industry workforce development, Liz Greenwood, said that, â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;While it is encouraging to look back on some short-term improvement in the overall supply

of trades last year, it is still a concern to see that the availability of some of these trades remained consistently in the negative only improving, at best, to a break-even point. â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Residential building activity in Australia has been subdued for quite some time now. What the Trades Report figures tell us is that when activity improves, existing trade shortages will again reach critical levels. This is a concern for everyone, not just for industry.â&#x20AC;&#x2122;

Local, Michael Gudgeon, joins Ray White Real Estate Michael Gudgeon made the move to Ray White in the new year. He has joined forces with Kaye Wilkie to work in partnership so that they are able to offer higher levels of service to their buyers and sellers. They have both lived in Byron Bay for many years  and know that having the local knowledge and passion for the area can often help greatly in the process of selling property. Kaye and Michael have also had many years of real estate experience and believe that experience, negotiation skills and a commitment to professional and caring service are key ingredients in being successful in real estate. Training has been important to both   and they think itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s essential to keep up with the latest ideas in the industry. â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;It keeps

The Byron Shire Echo February 7, 2012 51


Backlash Try to contain your excitement: Byron Shire councillors are back in action this Thursday in Mullum from 10.30am. You can also have public access from 9am. First notice of motion out of the blocks for 2012 is by Cr Diane Woods, calling for exercise equipment to be installed in various public locations. Sounds like a good idea, if you can contain the vandals. QQQQ

And the excitement continues the next day: to celebrate the launch of National Year of Reading, Mullumbimby library is hosting a reading flashmob outside the library on February 14, 12.30pmâ&#x20AC;&#x201C;12.45pm for 15 minutes of reading pleasure. The library is encouraging all its patrons to participate, so youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll see patrons and staff from the Byron Bay, Brunswick Heads and Mullumbimby libraries all in attendance and furiously reading. QQQQ

While downloading the council agenda from www.byron. nsw.gov.au, we noticed some of the vague language used to describe the Shire: â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;It is a thriving community where residents and visitors live, work and play in a sustainable environmentâ&#x20AC;Śâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; Any environment is sustainable; Saturnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s moon Titan sustains a methane environment, for example. So what exactly is meant by this?

Running naked, crying, breast feeding and a quirky new disease that regresses its victims â&#x20AC;&#x201C; just some of the acting challenges put to actors Craig Hearps and April Galetti in Sharon Shostakâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s latest short feature Tish Ho. Byron Bay International Film Festival has officially selected Shostakâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s latest drama for their 2012 lineup. Festival director Jâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;aimee Skippon-Volke said Sharonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s film was chosen because it â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;cut back to the core of indie filmmaking with solid performances and a nice tight scriptâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;. Its screening in March at the festival will also be a world premiere, so look out for the festival program in coming issues of The Echo. And see more now at www.bbff.com.au.
