Bradbury’s new flim – p15
Two rescued from yacht A 32-year-old woman and a 70-yearold man were winched to safety from a dismasted yacht which was taking on water in severe weather conditions 50 nautical miles off the coast from Byron Bay early Wednesday morning. The pair were airlifted to Brisbane. The yacht, Morning Tide, was en route from the NSW Central Coast to Brisbane when it ran into trouble around Coffs Harbour. The racing yacht, which has sailed in the Sydney to Hobart, reported it had engine problems and no communications, and an emergency device was activated. The bulk carrier Amarantha stayed near the yacht overnight, but was unable to conduct a rescue because of high seas. Westpac Life Saver Rescue Helicopter then provided back-up while the Emergency Management Queensland’s Rescue 500 helicopter winched the two to safety at around 3am. The pair were treated for hypothermia and fatigue and taken to Brisbane’s Princess Alexandra Hospital in a stable condition.

‘We take our cuppycakes very seriously up here in Coorabell,’ Frankie Jackson told photographer Jeff Dawson as she offered him one from the selection that Will Perrington is holding. While in the background, Jane Wrencher, Kelly Fletcher and Ouida Wrencher unfold the plan for this Saturday’s fabulous 50s family fun day to be held at Coorabell Hall. An art auction, flower arranging, and best-dressed competitions are will help raise funds for the school.
A former Tweed Valley banana farmer and father of nine who grew one of Australia’s largest cannabis crops for what he claimed was to fund a nationwide anti-abortion protest has told a court he has no regrets. The Supreme Court in Brisbane also heard that former Doon Doon landowner Michael Bennett Gardner had sold much of the crop in Nimbin, where he disguised himself as a hippie firewood salesman by wearing a dreadlocks wig, and that he used his young stepchildren as slave labour for the enterprise, forcing them to sow and weed thousands of plants when they should have been at school. Before moving to Queensland where the multi-million-dollar crop was grown, Gardner for years lived with his large family on a remote mountain-top property on the Tweed-Byron border at Doon Doon continued on page 2
Ministers back plans to replace doctor with video-conferencing Hans Lovejoy & Luis Feliu
NSW ministers are backing health bureaucrat Chris Crawford’s controversial decision to trial new telemedicine techonology at Mullumbimby Hospital, which would eventually replace its emergency overnight doctor. Despite the uproar it has caused within the community, local member for Ballina, Don Page, told The Echo, ‘Of course I don’t want to see any reduction in services and generally this has not occurred. However, the health administrators have to make decisions from time to time in relation to service delivery, which can impact on some local communities’.
Mr Page also referred to the proposed 54-bed hospital at Ewingsdale, which is still on the drawing board. ‘It’s a good example of why we need a bigger central hospital where more services would be offered and such issues wouldn’t arise.’ No start date or final plans for the hospital have been announced. Fellow minister for health and medical research, Jillian Skinner, also hosed down public concerns of diminished services by telling The Echo, ‘It is this kind of innovative solution, developed locally and currently being trialled, which could potentially better service local communities.’ But Ms Skinner, along with Mr
Crawford, still won’t be drawn into answering specific questions raised by hospital staff, who say the new system would not be cost efficient as claimed because the cost of transfers of patients to other hospitals would negate any expected savings from the budget measure.
Byron Council supports community campaign In contrast, Byron Shire Council is backing the community campaign fighting the proposed personel downgrade of the hospital’s 24-hour medical services. They also called for the Northern NSW Local Health Dis-
trict to consult with the community on the issue and decided to waive the hire fee for use of the Mullumbimby Civic Centre for the second public protest meeting which was held there last (Monday) night. Both federal MPs Justine Elliott and Janelle Saffin have already come out in support of the community campaign, with Ms Elliott describing any moves to downgrade services at Mullumbimby as ‘heartless’ and Ms Saffin addressing a recent protest rally. Scores of Byron Shire locals including doctors and nurses recently took part in a combined protest rally and march in Lismore to protest closures and cutbacks at Mullumbimby, Bon-
albo and Coraki hospitals. At a recent meeting between Mr Crawford and nurses, Mr Crawford told The Echo it was agreed to keep the night doctor rostered on at Mullumbimby for a couple of months to allow nurses to get used to the new system, which had now been pushed back from July 1 till late October.
Declined to comment Ms Skinner also declined to comment on the numerous demonstrations over health cuts in nearby Coraki and Bonalbo hospitals, and the recent coroner’s report that said Lismore Base Hospital is ‘incapable of providing continued on page 2

The one-on-one mentoring relationships are nourished by ‘uncles’ who give their time to interact, work, learn and play with the boys.

He said one of his stepmothers had suggested it to his father. APN News reported that the crops were so remote Kristen Gardner used GPS co-ordinates to find his way to the site. But the GPS co-ordinates also helped police find him and his well-hidden crop harvest when they raided the site after first searching his home at South Gundurimba and finding the geographic co-ordinate details downloaded on his computer. Gardner said he learnt about growing cannabis while working as a photographer in Canada where growing the crop for medicinal purposes was legal.

Jeff says he likes passing along blokey stuff to the future generation of men. ‘I enjoy teaching kids new skills. I get so much out of that. I am a more of the outdoorsy, hiking, camping and fishing sort of Uncle.’ Mother of project ‘nephew’, Naomi Schuelein, says that it has been helpful to her to be involved in the project. ‘It’s good for my son Falilou to have really positive male role models in his life.

A 20-year-old man has appeared in Lismore local court charged with assault an officer, resist arrest (four counts), exceeding the speed limit by more than 30km/h and highrange PCA (more than four times the legal limit). Police say a small sedan was detected speeding on the highway near Billinudgel in the early hours of Saturday morning and gave chase. When he was apprehended, police allege he became ‘extremely violent’ and forced one of the officers into a headlock. It took a further four officers arriving at the scene to subdue the man, say police.

Shooters now have protests in their sights Luis Feliu
The Shooters and Fishers Party have further outraged opponents of their deal with the state government allowing hunting in national parks by proposing to outlaw antihunting protests as well. The move this week by the shooters to outlaw what many see as their democratic right to protest prompted the NSW Greens to refer the controversial deal to the Independent Commission Against Corruption (ICAC). The deal last month paving the way for over 770 national parks and reserves to be opened up for hunters for what they claim is feral animal control has sparked an outcry from communities across the state. This week, Lismore and Coffs Harbour city councils voted to oppose hunting, while other councils surrounded by or reliant on tourism from national parks are set to follow their lead. The two north coast councils benefit from increasing tourism to the many national parks in their area which attract thousands of international and national visitors each year and fears hunting in national parks would deter many visitors. Three popular national
parks in the region: Nightcap, Richmond Ranges and Yabbra national parks are included in the ‘hit list’ of parks to be opened up for shooters. Greens MLC Cate Faehrmann said this week that ‘the deal is in between the O’Farrell government and the radical Shooters Party after the Shooters presented their legislative amendments to parliament allowing amateur hunting in national parks and moving for the first time to outlaw antihunting protests’. ‘The bill tabled today only excludes 28 of our national parks and other types of reserves. This will leave 771 open to recreational hunters at this point in time. It’s disgraceful that Barry O’Farrell has sold off public safety, the environment, animal welfare and native wildlife to the extreme demands of the Shooters Party,’ Ms Faehrmann said.
Broken promise ‘When is the truth about this shambolic deal going to come out? This bill is contrary to the promise from last week that only 79 parks and reserves would be open. ‘National parks are iconic and hold a special place for most Australians. It is just as-
tounding that Mr O’Farrell thinks he can sell them out for a dirty political deal with the Shooters Party. What makes this deal even worse is that recreational ground shooting is recognised by feral species experts as completely ineffective at eradicating species.’ Coffs Harbour City Council this week voted unanimously to oppose private shooting in the parks and will let the premier and environment minister know, soon after Lismore council also resolved to oppose hunting in parks in its local government area.
‘Risk of being shot’ Coffs Harbour Cr Mark Graham who was behind the move said it was about representing ‘the interests of the many people who currently use our na-
tional parks safely without the risk of being shot’. ‘There is no evidence that ground-based private shooting is effective in controlling feral animals. There is lots of evidence that shooting is dangerous and numerous fatalities have occurred in recent decades,’ Cr Graham said. ‘Opposition is mounting across the state and rangers are refusing to work on this dangerous proposal. Seventy-four thousand people in the Coffs Harbour local government area have joined the chorus. ‘There are around 35-million peaceful recreational visits annually to our conservation reserves; there are approximately twenty thousand members of the Game Council. ‘The numbers simply don’t add up.’
Garda’s murderer convicted Lennox Head man Kevin Purtill was found guilty by jury with murdering Byron Bay businessman Jack Garda last week. Mr Garda was well known in the community as the owner/ operator of the town’s 24-hour convenience store and newsagency in Sunrise. The prosecution described the murder in February 2010 as a drug deal gone wrong, and
said Mr Garda bled to death in Purtill’s Lennox Head home after having his throat cut. His body was later dumped in a shallow grave near Broadwater. Mr Purtill’s brother, forty eight-year-old Warren Garda is already serving time for being an accessory after the fact. Kevin Purtill will be sentenced on August 17.

Byron Bay Writersâ€™ Festival program launches This week the upcoming 16th Byron Bay Writersâ€™ Festival program launches as an inclusion into this weekâ€™s Echo. Festival director Jonathan Parsons says, â€˜Itâ€™s a delight to shepherd one of Australiaâ€™s most-loved literary events, and I hope it will again enthral lovers of literature and ideas in the delightful setting of Byron Bay.â€™ With over 120 featured writers, readers and thinkers from around the globe, it is widely regarded as one of Australiaâ€™s premier literary events. Lovers of words and ideas can expect a lively and dynamic mix of literary talent across live radio broadcasts, readings, panel discussions, book signings, conversations, films, literary food events and book launches. The event draws together thousands of literature lovers for three days of intelligent discussion, passionate interaction and fun. International guests at this

Tweed-Byron marine reserve â€˜ignoredâ€™ Luis Feliu
The federal governmentâ€™s plan to set up the worldâ€™s largest network of marine parks has been slammed for ignoring a call to set up a Tweed-Byron Marine Reserve or to protect a nationally significant offshore canyon. Federal environment minister Tony Burke last week announced the plan to create 44 marine parks covering 3.1 million square kilometres, or a third of Australian waters, including the Coral Sea and the southwest coast of Western Australia. The reserves limit fishing and some oil and gas exploration. The plan is still in a 60-day consultation process. But leading north coast environmentalist Dailan Pugh says NSW and the north coast have missed out badly. He told The Echo that 4,500 submissions supporting the proposed Tweed-Byron Marine Reserve were ignored and the Tweed Canyon â€˜is to get no protection at allâ€™.
Mr Pugh said that unique marine environments such as the Britannia and Queensland volcanic seamounts, 170km offshore from the Tweed and Byron coasts, were only given limited protection as habitat protection zones in the Central Eastern Commonwealth Marine Reserve. Mr Pugh said that while the reserve plan had â€˜delivered a major step towards the urgently needed comprehensive, adequate and representative marine reserve systemâ€™, for NSW it had â€˜unfortunately, delivered an appalling outcomeâ€™. â€˜While 26 per cent of the 1.5 million square kilometres Temperate East Marine Region is to be included in reserves, only four per cent is to be fully protected in marine national park zones.Â â€˜Despite less than one per cent of the 7,100 submissions to the draft plan supporting the same or less protection than the Commonwealth proposed, it has ignored 99 per cent of submissions by reducing the area
of marine national park zones and rezoning the meagre 1.6 per cent of the continental shelf proposed for reserves as specialpurpose zones, which have virtually no effect on any activity. â€˜These are reserves in name only.Â This leaves a meagre 0.01 per cent of the continental shelf, around two grey nurse aggregation sites that are proposed for marine national park zones, as all that is to be protected.
Reducing protection â€˜In reducing protection for the continental shelf the Commonwealth has not only ignored the public, but also the scientific organisations CSIRO, Australian Museum, Australian Marine Sciences Association, NSW Fisheries Scientific Committee and Australian Coral Reef Society, who all identified the particular need to increase protection for the continental shelf and upper slope where high biodiversity values are threatened by high human impacts.â€™
iconic authors Gail Jones and Charlotte Wood swapping notes on the literary life; and Geoff Gallop searching for the truth in politics. Ian Lowe and George Megalogenis will ask â€˜Is the big country big enough?â€™ Michaela McGuire and Susan Johnson pull the â€˜Fâ€™ word apart as they discuss feminism in the here and now, while Sophie Cunningham, Niromi de Soyza, Denise Leith and Sally Neighbour will give us their hot tips on the art of survival.

Rape and assault survivor tells her story

In 1994, Faith was tortured and raped for five hours on Main Beach, Byron Bay. The monster who did this to her came close to killing her yet today Faith feels lucky. Not lucky that she survived and certianly not lucky that she was raped, but lucky that in the days after her attack, she was not treated as if she was somehow to blame for her ordeal, as if she had asked for it. When The Echo spoke to Faith last year she choose to tell her story anonymously for fear of exposure to the perpetrator under the very real threat of her assailant being given parole, but the impending SlutWalk in Byron Bay has moved Faith to come forward and speak out After a horrific ordeal in 1994, Faith was lucky to have survived.

Lightforce is now light-driven. Pictured is head honcho Sagaro, who said, ‘The building has nine-metre ceilings and we knew we would be consuming a fair bit of energy for cooling and heating year round. We also have perhaps two dozen computers that run all the time.’ The installation measures out at 8.8 kilowatts, the maximum they could fit on their 100
square metre roof space. Due to its size, they have a licence to generate electricity for the grid. ‘We’ve just run the numbers for our electricity usage costs for the entire year,’ says Sagaro, ‘and we’ve reduced our requirements from the grid tremendously and the feed-in tariff has paid for the power we did use plus gaining a credit of $597.18.

Metgasco may spray wastewater on crops: EPA
Despite taking action to prevent coal-seam gas miner Metgasco from disposing of potentially polluted wastewater into the Casino Sewerage Treatment Plant (STP) the Environment Protection Authority (EPA) has flagged the possibility of the water being used for agricultural irrigation in the future. The EPA made the extraordinary comment in a letter written to the Environmental Defenders Office (EDO) earlier this month, which was acting on behalf of Lock the Gate Northern Rivers (LTGNR). The letter, written by EPA’s north coast region manager more than $9,000 of electricity Brett Nudd and addressed to we generated ourselves. EDO lawyer Sue Higginson, ‘Mark and I agree with Australia’s distaste for nuclear power, but coal is not the only answer either.

admitted that 1.36 megalitres of potentially contaminated water had been unlawfully released into the Richmond Valley Council’s (RVC) STP. The letter confirmed the NSW Office of Water’s view that the disposal of water via an STP was ‘inappropriate’ and advised RVC not to process any further water through its STP. But the reason given was a technical one, saying that the liquid for disposal didn’t constitute ‘human septage/effluent’. It went on to say, ‘Metgasco has also been advised that the water contained in its storage ponds cannot be disposed of via a STP. Further, the produced water needs to be assessed against the EPA’s Solid and Liq-
uid Waste Classification Guidelines to identify lawful disposal pathways’. But the letter also said, ‘if coal-seam gas produce water is managed appropriately and not cross-contaminated with drilling fluids or other related compounds, there is potential for this water to be sustainably utilised as a resource for agricultural irrigation. The produced water would need to be analysed to ensure it consistently meets ANZECC Water Quality Guidelines.’ The suggestion has rung alarm bells with LTGNR spokesperson Boudicca Cerese, who says experiments with disposal of produced water in Queensland have been very concerning.

To expand and improve accommodation for people with disabilities $8.2 million has be allocated for capital spending next year. A further $30 million will boost the $70 million already committed to help local councils pay for much-needed upgrades and maintenance of infrastructure, as part of the Local Infrastructure Renewal Scheme. The scheme provides councils an interest subsidy for a period of up to 10 years on significant loans taken out specifically to pay for backlog infrastructure projects such as roads, community halls, libraries, paths, parks, sports fields and water facilities.
State govt reneges on highway duplication Chris Dobney
In last week’s state budget the government refused to budge on its 20 per cent offer towards funding the full duplication of the Pacific Highway, meaning that goal is not now likely until at least 2020. While roads minister Duncan Gay announced $5 billion of spending on the state’s roads, less than $1 billion was earmarked for the Pacific Highway in the next financial year. On the positive side, there is $240 million to start work on the Pacific Highway upgrade between Tintenbar and Ewingsdale and $63 million to continue www.echo.net.au
work on the dual carriageway upgrade between Woolgoolga and Ballina. The federal government has yet to be drawn on what will become of its 50 per cent offer, after previously indicating it would be contingent on the state stumping up the rest. The most likely scenario is that the feds will only match the state’s contribution dollar for dollar, pushing out completion of the highway considerably. Federal Page Labor MP Janelle Saffin took a swipe at her National Party state colleagues, saying the decision to cut funding to the road ‘puts a real dent in their political credibility. It
was a big campaign issue… and they haven’t been able to deliver,’ she told ABC radio last week. But state Ballina MP and north coast minister Don Page said the state simply couldn’t afford a 50/50 split. ‘I think we’ve done reasonably well in a tight monetary situation,’ he said, adding that revenue from GST was well down on the previous year. Head of the Pacific Highway task force Richie Williamson questions what will happen to the federal government money now the state has decided not to match it. He added that the community would like to know the timetable, the works plan and the funding agreement. <echowebsection=Local News>

entitlement that has grown up through the profligate votebuying of the Howard government through buckets of middle class welfare.

vaccination, fluoridation, and other scientifically proven public health measures is apparently on the increase. So-called ‘alternative’ (a synonym for untested, irrational, unscientific) medicine is embraced with growing fervour by otherwise sensible citizens. Religion, already based on faith rather than reason, is becoming either totally dumbed down (the happy-clappy churches) or reinvented in ever more bizarre sects and cults involving everything from the worship of trees to the channelling of archangels. And then there is the clearest indicator of all, denial of climate change. In the past this was the domain of those with a vested interest, such as coal owners, and the barking mad, such as Cardinal George Pell and shock jock Alan Jones, each of whom has his own reasons for believing in fairy tales. But doubts (for which there is no basis at all) are now spreading among the general public, to the extent that Julia Gillard (and Tony Burke, when a petty-minded opposition will let him go) will appear at the Rio summit with their own well-thoughtout measures to deal with the carbon tax and their marine parks network, for starters, both deeply unpopular within their own country. And Rio, of course, has already been marked down for failure: the West, in particular, is more concerned with saving itself from decline and fall than with the preservation of the planet. And yet it is precisely this selfishness, this short sightedness, and yes, this over-indulgence and irrationality, that has got us into the mess in the first place. Over to you, Asia.

But the NBN, while huge, is far from useless – it is actually a sign of progress rather than decline.

Almost every civilisation on the wane tries to build itself out of trouble by erecting huge and useless memorials. by Mungo MacCallum of course at the same time we continue to bay for lower taxes. It isn’t sustainable, and deep down we know it, which is one of the reasons we have grown to resent our politicians – especially the ones in government – so violently and irrationally. The alternative would be to accept the blame ourselves, a final step we are not ready to take. The evidence of our over-indulgence is not yet as dramatic as that of ancient Rome – our circuses are not yet as lethal or our orgies as public and even our flashiest restaurants have not yet installed vomitoriums. But it is there, so it is worth developing Hartcher’s thesis a little further. If over-indulgence is one of the symptoms of a society in decline, what are the others? Well, there are at least two, and the first is an obsession with monument building. Almost every civilisation on the wane tries to build itself out of trouble by erecting huge and useless memorials to its apparently eternal triumphs – what might be called the Ozy-
portent of doom. But the second is far more prevalent and worrying: an increasing tendency to believe in, and rely on, the irrational. In Rome this manifested itself in the proliferation of strange religious cults and a rejection of science which led, ultimately, to the dark ages in Europe. And the rejection of science is arguably the most important social problem in the western world. Its epicentre is, of course, the United States, in which more than half the population reportedly rejects the theory of evolution in favour of a particularly batty form of Christianity in which an obsession with sexual morality is combined with the drug-induced fantasies of the book of Revelations, with more than a touch of astrology, numerology, iridology and you name it thrown in.

Oral Probiotics Oral Probiotics are a new, yet scientiﬁcally proven approach to promote healthy bacteria inside your mouth and throat. A speciﬁc strain of healthy bacteria are introduced to the oral environment (lozenges, dissolvable tablets, or powder form) where they cling to the inside of your mouth and throat helping to block the growth of potential pathogens and helping to kill those already there, enhancing ear, nose and throat health. Studies have shown oral probiotics to be extremely effective in treating and more importantly preventing sore throats, colds, ﬂu, ear infections and bad breath. They beneﬁcially inﬂuence health by protecting, improving and boosting your immune system. Safe for children and adults, oral probiotics are an ideal way to protect you and your family against winter illness.

Funding CCTV With very few dark corners not covered by CCTV you would expect UK cities to be some of the safest places in the world. Unfortunately not, and metaanalyses of crime statistics reveal that while such surveillance is effective in car parks, the effect on violent crime in public spaces is insignificant. On the other hand CCTV is obviously a tool that could help police identify offenders. So letâ€™s put the facts on the table and be frank about the reasons for introducing this technology to Byron. If the proponents win the argument, then letâ€™s be realistic about funding the scheme. I was flabbergasted some time back when I heard that ratepayers had been hit for $30,000 in Councilâ€™s attempt to frustrate the intentions of Schoolie teenagers and generally wipe the vomit from Byronâ€™s face. Likewise I fail to see how it is ratepayersâ€™ responsibility to subsidise CCTV for Byronâ€™s purveyors of alcohol. How about the Liquor Accord gets its hands out of our pockets and digs into its own. A pro rata levy based on grog sale volume would be more equitable than sucking funds from council services and much-needed infrastructure maintenance. Alan Watterson
Public art drawcard I once visited a town in northern Tasmania that featured stunning murals on many shop walls, and a massive tapestry that had been fabricated by the community. As well as beautifying the town and making it more interesting, these public works of art were an enormous tourist drawcard, bringing millions of dollars into the town each year, shared among local
businesses. Byron Bay is a centre of creative people, but it isnâ€™t reflected in the town. The occasional painted phone and electricity box, tiled roundabout and a few scattered pieces of sculpture certainly make Byron more interesting but we could do with so much more. As retail businesses are closing down, the Shire needs an injection of public art. Murals, sculpture exhibitions, digital media shows, circus, street performers... this region can be so vibrant! Good on you, Byron Council, for beginning this process with $30,000 annually. Itâ€™s a small start, but as it builds, public art can become a major drawcard for the Shire and bring many more visitors to the town, with downstream returns far outweighing costs. As the Shireâ€™s reputation for public art grows, other funding bodies, including state and federal funding, private bequests and philanthropic grants, would all be attracted to contributing to public art. In such uncertain economic times, we need it! Michael Balson

Changing Main Arm by S96 degrees During the naughties developers pushed against local community wishes and eventually gained approval to subdivide a few rural properties around Main Arm village into â€˜Rural Residentialâ€™ lots. One major objection to the developments was and is that you canâ€™t get out of Main Arm without crossing one or more causeways. The worst of these is where Main Arm Road crosses Blindmouth Creek. Itâ€™s a low-level single-lane causeway with a blind corner on the southern approach. And you arrive at the site after legally doing up to 100 km/h most of the way from Mullumbimby (if the potholes allow). A woman drowned after being washed off that crossing in 2008.
A condition of consent on these developments says they donâ€™t happen till the crossing is upgraded, in height and width. Seems about right to me. One of the developers is keen to go but doesnâ€™t want to do the upgrade single-handed. They want the condition deleted from the consent. They applied (Section 96 application) to delete it and then waited for a year as another developer chatted with Council about going it alone on the upgrade. That scheme got shelved so the S96 finally came before Council last week. It was refused 6 to 3 â€“ many thanks, councillors, except Tucker, Heeson and Woods. In the meantime, the same developer has lodged a new

S96 to delete the same condition.

Readers, please lodge submissions against S96 Application number 10.2008.159.3 (the Davis DA). Itâ€™s on exhibition and submissions must reach Byron Shire Council by July 2. Personally, I donâ€™t want to be killed by the extra traffic coming round the blind corner.
Letâ€™s make the crossing safe before increasing the traffic. The works may cost most of $1 million. This DA must already pay about a third of that as its Section 94 DA contribution (which is tied to upgrading the crossing). The other two-thirds would be about the cost of two or three of the 22 lots approved on that property. Four are already sold. Why canâ€™t this developer build the crossing and be content with just 19 or 20 lots as profit? The condition should remain. Duncan Dey

Stayed on in Sweden in an unsuccessful attempt to be questioned over these sexual assault allegations (he has not been charged). 2. Has consistently and continually offered to be questioned by video link / via the Metropolitan Police in London (or by any other practical method) since his return to the UK – these attempts have been refused. 3. Has spent more than 500 days under house arrest, without charge, and without any assistance whatsoever from the Australian government. 4.

Planning for fireworks When Graeme Faulkner resigned recently as general manager of Byron Shire Council the conservative press hinted that the new Byron sportsground had something to do with it. I checked his press release and there was nothing in it about the sportsground, so I assume that his allies were fed something off the record. The gist of the comments was that the council had voted in favour of the project even though the staff had recommended against it. The only way I can make sense of this is that staff were at-
tempting to distance themselves from cost blowouts and other signs of poor management that might later come to light. The reason why nothing about the sportsgrounds has come up in the agenda for council meetings over the past few years is that Graeme was running kind-of-parallel council meetings via the Strategic Planning Committee. This committee has purported to be able to give itself delegated authority to make binding decisions on a range of subjects that had zero to do with strate-
gic planning, without needing to refer its decisions to the full council for ratification. Graeme himself has purported to be able to decide which items will take that course, though there is nothing in the instrument of delegation that gives him that power. Making it up as he went along, the cost figure for the sportsgrounds was given as $17 million. Personally I can’t see it coming in at one third of that. This needs to be looked into – expect fireworks.

about being illegally placed in FTWFTD at 58 and only three months after I had declared my last casual work to Centrelink, one DEEWR minion changed the WFTD hours I had already done from 428 back to zero. My latest (February, 2012) Job Capacity Assessment says I last worked in carpentry in 1997 when Centrelink’s SU19s show it was March 2007. It also says I was a professional writer some undefined distance in the past. I told that qualified social worker I was relief editor and journalist on Cr Tucker’s Mullumbimby Star in 1997 – as everyone in this Shire bloodywell knows I was! That assessor would not tell me his surname, or what his real qualifications were and where he got them. (All us real professionals are proud of ours; we tell everybody.) Nor are the qualifications of these assessors included on the
reports they write – where it clearly says ‘Professional Qualifications’ on these Commonwealth documents. I suppose qualified social worker is better than ‘Other’ though, and at least this guy wrote his name instead of just a bureaucratic code. There is also another worse sort of punishment than being rolled-over in all this deliberate false information – deliberate bureaucratic burial. Imagine writing for a job and saying you have a university degree and when the prospective employer checks your details with Centrelink he is told that you didn’t finish high school. Deliberately kept unemployed? Think of how such misinformation could impact on you in a job application or in a million other different ways. A lone parent when you are not, or vice versa?

Vision for north coast health services fails to satisfy all Q One
of your journalists recently challenged me to set out a vision for the Northern NSW Local Health District (NNSW LHD). The NNSW LHD Board, supported by management, has recently developed a five-year strategic plan, which sets out a comprehensive vision for the District. Within this more comprehensive vision, is a vision for the hospital services of the
Richmond/Tweed, to which your journalist was referring. The Richmond/Tweed Hospital vision is to build up two very sophisticated referral hospitals, being The Tweed (TTH) and Lismore Base (LBH) hospitals, with each supported by two strong district hospitals, being Murwillumbah and Byron Shire Central, and Ballina and Casino hospitals respectively, which will offer generalist and some sub-acute (eg

rehabilitation) services. The outlying districts will be serviced by a multipurpose service/small hospital model. During my time as chief executive the services available at LBH and TTH have expanded significantly. When the PET/CT and MRI services are commissioned in October, LBH will have a wider range of services available than any regional hospital in Australia. TTH also continues to have its services expanded with an upgraded pathology service recently opened and a new procedure room and an MRI service currently being developed. As well, a Clinical Services Plan, which will guide the next major stage of TTH expansion, is just about complete. The district hospitals have also had new services added during my time as chief executive with a rehabilitation unit established at Ballina Hospital and a CT scanner service at Murwillumbah Hospital. Funding of $1 million has been secured from government to complete the planning for the Byron Shire Central Hospital, which is currently underway. A major weakness identified in this network of hospitals is the infrastructure of the LBH Emergency Department (ED). After years of strong advocacy for funding to develop a new emergency department, an allocation of $80 million has been announced by the federal ($60m) and state governments ($20m) to allow this new ED to be developed. So within no more than one hour’s travel patients can re-
ceive low to medium acuity treatment in their own locality at a district hospital and within up to 90 minutes travel time they can receive higher level care, all within the Richmond/Tweed Region. This is the NNSW LHD vision, which we are progressively turning into a reality. Chris Crawford
Chief Executive Northern NSW Local Health District Q The letter to the editor from Colin Clarke (Echo, June 12) reads like disinformation from the Health Department. Who else stands to gain from shutting down little hospitals? Indeed even the health department may regret it as ambulances to bigger hospitals are expensive and in short supply. In England, cottage hospitals that were closed are being reopened as the false economy of centralising becomes evident. Both Bellingen hospital and Murwillumbah have been threatened with cuts, yet are flourishing now due to community protests. Sickness doesn’t go away by shutting peripheral hospitals; it just gets transported long ways, to wait long times and be expensively investigated by nervous-of-lawyers young doctors who don’t know the patient or the community. Relatives, including elderly spouses, then have to travel a long way to see inpatients. Yes, Mr Clarke, we need an adult conversation on health, starting with some facts. Counting just inner-town Mullumbimby as 3,100 persons ignores the much greater population in the hinterland, driving slow roads in poor cars often, and Ocean Shores and Brunswick and tourists and festival goers.

When other DEEWR employees found those changed FTWFTD hours months after they had been changed to zero, they changed the hours and the dates turning full time into part time and then left me being parasited on. How do you know you aren’t being put through some paper ‘module’ that pays handsomely for a dole parasite because your information has been changed to make you ‘eligible’? How do you know that false information is not what stopped you from getting that last job/ house/hope of a better life?

relatives from other areas come to visit. Counting the beds as 28 is perhaps true of mattresses, but actually only 14 are funded for nursing support. The same goes for Byron Hospital and the other little hospitals, which often function as nursing homes for frail elderly. Mr Clarke insulting the democratic process by mocking protests ignores the many times such activities have forestalled assault on services, and shows a smug disregard for those who were not consulted before the decisions. The little hospitals take pressure off bigger hospitals, employ many people and are part of rural industries, families and a civilised rich country that can afford care for more vulnerable members of the community. I have worked as a doctor in such casualties for 22 years and have seen the skill, kindness and good work of this special part of our community. Dr Liz Elliott
Mullumbimby I don’t get it. Something’s missing in the equation. We pay our taxes which pay the six-digit salaries of Chris Crawford and Tim Free. Our taxes pay their super for a cushy retirement, the car that no doubt comes with the job, petrol and so on. Yet repeatedly when given the opportunity, they won’t front our community to explain to us or hear our concerns why a nurse working to the instructions of a doctor on the other end of a video camera is not good enough. Where is the public accountability from these bean counters? Rather than cutting back our services, they should be re-instating what services they have taken away from our community one by one, given that the long-promised Ewingsdale
hospital is still a pipe dream. It may never happen given our state governments effectively broke in all but name following state Labor’s disastrous and corrupt legacy. We have this ridiculous situation where Chris Crawford pays a locum to fly up from Tasmania for five nights a week ($1,200 a night salary to the doctor plus hefty travel allowance, return airfare, hotel bills etc) to be on standby duty at Lismore Base Hospital. No local doctor over there will take on the after-hours job, pay rates being so low. So how does he pay for it? Cut Mullum’s services and the other small surrounding hospitals. It’s time for the new generation of doctors who have migrated north into our community to step up to the plate and accept their responsibility for shouldering the load one night a month for on-call hospital duty. This situation has arisen because the majority of doctors at Ocean Shores, Brunswick Heads and Mullum will not go out of their comfort zone at nighttime to be on standby duty. One cannot blame them at $11 an hour pay rates and $70 if called into the hospital for a patient. But if they come to a rural community, this service goes with the job and the benefits of living in this community. They should be willing to give back. We in turn as a community must oblige the bean counters to pay them a decent salary for their inconvenience in serving us. It’s not fair that a few selfsacrificing good souls bear the burden while the other doctors working 8.30am to 5pm collect their Medicare cheques, roll over in bed and don’t take on this important role after hours.

Israel and Palestine
Harsha Prahbu (Letters, June 5) please note: a great philosopher (Aesop?) once wrote: each of us wears two sacks: the one in front contains the faults of others, the one at the back our own, which we cannot see. Thus Prabhu can see the faults of Israel but not the ones in his own people. In short these are: lack of rights for women, lack of freedom of the press, severe punishment if you contradict your own government, homicidal aggression against Israelis, continued threats of obliterating Israel. As for Avigail, grandiloquising from the
Ocean Shores I am very interested to learn why the Israeli community in Byron Shire seems largely silent on the grave situation in Israel-Palestine. If there are any local demonstrations over what’s happening there, these are mostly attended by nonIsraelis. Sometimes, they are not so silent.

An affirmation of the value of life for its own sake Peter Thompson
What is the meaning of life? Wrong question, like asking why does the sun come up. More productive to ask what can we do with the gift of life, having received it without asking for it? This is addressed in David Bradbury’s powerful new film On Borrowed Time. It’s a loving tribute to David’s fellow filmmaker Paul Cox, who makes the frightening discovery in 2009 that he has incurable liver disease. David had already begun filming when Paul’s medical crisis deepens so it adds urgency to this engaging and enlightening portrait – one with a surprisingly happy twist. David has the instincts and the intelligence of a master craftsman and On Borrowed Time is typically searching and inventive. As a veteran documentarian, David knows how to tell a story and he is as passionate as he was more than 30 years ago when Front Line about Australian cameraman Neil Davis earned the first of his two Academy Award nominations. As the old saying goes, Life is an ocean and passion is the gale. On Borrowed Time is a fulsome affirmation of the value of life for its own sake, of the
ness is a nice antidote to Paul’s tendency to introspection and self-indulgence. We’re fortunate in the Northern Rivers to have so many creatively inclined residents. Perhaps we should declare David one of our own Living Treasures. We’re also lucky that Noel Jeffries perseveres with Travelling Flicks and that he’s made a space for us to come together and share On Bor-
rowed Time in the company of its remarkably accomplished creator. David Bradbury’s On Borrowed Time is creening at Travelling Flicks on Friday June 22 at the Drill Hall Theatre in Mullumbimby at 7.30pm – dinner and desserts at 6.30pm – with the filmmaker in attendance, to be interviewed afterwards by Peter Thompson.

preciousness of each moment. It has been the theme of many if not all of Paul’s 22 feature films. A Woman’s Tale (1991) has Sheila Florance raging against the dying of the light – she was herself dying of cancer, but won an AFI award as best actress for her role. The Remarkable Mr Kaye documented the life of Paul’s close friend Norman Kaye, who collaborated on 16 of his films before dying in 2007 with advanced Alzheimer’s disease. Now it is Paul’s turn to con-
front his mortality and not unexpectedly On Borrowed Time is uplifting rather than morbid. It’s injected with David’s own vitality but it’s also a celebration of Paul’s artistic life, which has been unusually prolific and diverse. And his brush with death has brought the past and the present into even sharper focus. He’s more appreciative than ever of the basic human virtues and the wonder of our place in the universe. I realise watching On Borrowed Time that Paul and Da-
vid have much in common. Both rail against stupidity and selfishness as anyone who knows them and their work can attest. But they’re passionate lovers of life as well. And yet they’re very different characters. When I talk to David after the screening at the Mullum Drill Hall on June 22, I want to ask him how he got on with Paul. I suspect there were fireworks. But Paul could not have found a better biographer. David’s rambunctious-

him: ‘If you were in Israel we would kill you!’ At the silent vigil for Palestine that we set up at the Mosh Ben Ari concert in Mullumbimby early this year, the promoter of the concert was very keen for us to pack up and leave. One reason he gave for this was he felt that some of the Israeli concert-goers might attack us. So, not just silence from some local Israelis, but censorship and intimidation. I feel for my Israeli friends, including those in Byron Shire, who have lost loved ones in this sad conflict. I also feel for them because living in Israel,
where it’s clear one is taught to hate one’s neighbour and see him as ‘the enemy’, must have been hard for them. It must be hard to be forced into the army at a young age and be ordered to shoot at civilians, at women and children. But can’t our Israeli friends not sympathise with the plight of their sisters and brothers in Palestine who are facing what amounts to genocide, as defined by best practice international standards? Why is supporting human rights for Palestine seen as supporting terrorism? Here is the testimony of Nurit Peled-Elhanan. Nurit and her husband Rami live
in Jerusalem, have close family who died in the Holocaust. One member was present at the birth of Israel and was an Israeli general and war hero. Nurit and Rami lost their daughter to a suicide bomber. Nurit has seen it all, has no fear and speaks from the heart. Please listen closely. ‘We are all controlled by the racist laws of this place, and voluntarily placed into ghettos. The Zionist ghetto has learned not to see and not to hear anything beyond the walls that surround it: the real walls made of concrete, and the imaginary walls made of obedience, hate and terrible fear. We do not
dare protest against the racist laws, we do not dare to defy racist signs, we do not dare to defend tortured children, we do not dare to break the walls of Gaza, and we do not dare go to Hebron and Deheisheh, to Jenin and Ramallah to ask after the neighbours. ‘That is the great victory of the Occupation. Under the cover of the Occupation, we choose again and again to fold under the rule of criminals of every kind, war criminals, ignoramuses and boors. Thus do we punish ourselves for our helplessness and the withering of our spirit.’ (http:// www.australiansforpalestine.
net/64618#more-64618.) John Pilger talks about this silence in an article about Rami and Nurit. Pilger comments: ‘… Jews in western countries, such as Britain and Australia, whose influence is critical, are still mostly silent, still looking away, still accepting, as Nurit said, the “brainwashing and reality distortion’.’’ Why is the local Israeli community silent on this issue, when their sisters and brothers in the peace movement, especially the ones in Israel, are crying for them to speak out for peace?

Alcohol in society The extensive commentary on Byron Bay’s response to alcohol related problems focuses on solutions well downstream of the source of the problem. Moreover, the problem is defined as ‘alcohol-fuelled violence’. One imagines that this encompass brawling and physical violence. These are a likely consequence of binge drinking – consuming a quantity of alcohol in a space of time that results in loss of composure, control and the consequences thereof. The reality for many, however, is that these binges countenance a deeper pain – in sexual violence, domestic violence and longer-term regret. The local police command, chamber of commerce and the Liquor Accord are advocating strongly for the establishment of CCTV. It may be a modest strategy in monitoring the public violence secondary to binge drinking, yet does little to bring dignity to the individual who is bingeing, or to the victim behind closed doors or in sheltered corners. Where lies the advocacy for more a meaningful social dimension in this discussion, or meaningful consideration of redressing uncurbed foolishness? One understands the position of the police in wishing to stem violence: they are at the cutting edge of its distasteful might. Yet the Accord and the chamber of commerce have a clear conflict of interest, one that appears to ameliorate meaningful discussion around trading hours, and patron and server responsibility. If we are to cast our gaze even a little ‘upstream’, we might consider the relationship between availability (density of licensed premises, trading hours, compliance with server legislated responsibility) and violence. We might consider the hypocrisy of those same institutions who call for something to be done about the alcohol– related violence, yet continue to promote its consumption, and provide the subtle excuse that we have responsibility to the tourists that we host. Our mayor stands courageous and should hold her position proudly on this matter: CCTV has a very minor role to play in this drama. The real show is about the industry, about the community fabric that is subject to that industry, and about those who aspire to weave that fabric. Michael Douglas

A poisonous new weapon in the struggle with cane toads An effective new weapon in the fight against the spread of cane toads has been developed by the University of Sydney, in collaboration with the University of Queensland. ‘This is the first powerful tool we have created to control cane toads,’ said Professor Rick Shine, from the University’s School of Biological Sciences and the lead author of the study which was published in the Proceedings of Royal Society B on June 13. The new research shows that the same powerful poisons cane toads use to devastate native species can be used as a weapon against the toads themselves – by using the poison as ‘bait’ in traps set in waterbodies to catch toad tadpoles. ‘A chemical “bait” created from the toads’ poison is a real magnet for toad tadpoles,’ Professor Shine said. The biggest obstacle to getting rid of cane toads is that a single clutch (the amount of eggs laid at a time by one female) can contain more than 30,000 eggs. ‘This means that even if you catch and kill 99 per cent of the adult toads in an area, the few that are left can produce so many offspring that before you know it you are back to where you started – just as many cane
collaborators at the University of Queensland we are developing an even stronger, safer, and easier-to-use bait,’ Professor Shine said. ‘To do this, we will isolate the active agent in the toads’ secretion, and use it in pure form without all of the associated poisons.’ Cane toads (Rhinella ma-
rina) are spreading through tropical Australia with a devastating impact on native species. Predators that try to eat toads are killed by the invader’s powerful poisons; in some local populations of crocodiles, goannas and quolls, more than 95 per cent of the animals are killed within a few months of the toads’ arrival.

toads as ever,’ Professor Shine said. The only way around the problem is to stop the toads from reproducing, Professor Shine explains. The study discovered the secretion from the shoulder (parotoid) glands of dead toads can be used as bait. It is cheap, easy to obtain and highly attractive to toad tadpoles – but repels the tadpoles of native frogs. ‘This is perfect to use in funnel-traps in ponds to catch toad tadpoles. Other native fauna such as fishes and insects aren’t attracted to this chemi-
cal but toad tadpoles are incredibly good at detecting it, and they search for its source as soon as they encounter it,’ Professor Shine said. ‘When we use this chemical as bait in a funnel-trap we catch thousands of toad tadpoles and almost nothing else. In one natural pond, we collected more than 40,000 toad tadpoles in less than a week. And I think we got them all over the next few weeks, not a single toad emerged from that pond.’ The researchers hope to train people from local ‘toad-bust-
ing’ community groups in the proper methods of collection. Until then, even a dead toad inside a funnel-trap can serve as an effective ‘bait’ for toad tadpoles, without requiring any risky squeezing of poison glands. The toad’s poison is very dangerous to humans as well as many native species (and pet dogs, etc) so collecting it must be done very carefully, and by someone who has been trained in the right methods; and is wearing suitable protective equipment. ‘In continuing work with our

NEXT WEEK’S SPECIAL FEATURE
AUSTRALIAN ETHICAL: INCREASING SUPPORT FOR THE COMMUNITY Australian Ethical donates 10 per cent of its company proﬁt each year – one of the highest levels of corporate giving in Australia based on percentage of proﬁts. It donated more than $150,000 to 22 charities through its 2011 community grants scheme, bringing the total amount gifted to communities over the last 11 years to more than $1.28 million. Grants range in size from $3600 to $35,000 and

include donations to charities that work across Australia and overseas. Two major project grants of $35,000 each were made in 2011 to Carpets for Communities and Men of the Trees. Carpets for Communities Carpets for Communities helps families in Cambodia out of poverty through the creation of a social enterprise – making carpets for sale. This scheme offers an alternative source of income to families that have children working or begging in the local ﬂea markets. Their $35,000 grant will be used to enable ten mothers to join the program, and within 48 hours of a mother entering the program their children can be off the streets and back in school. Men of the Trees Men of the Trees have been working with Western Australian farmers since 1979 to implement large-scale revegetation projects in the wheatbelt. Since that time it has planted more than 11 million seedlings to prevent the
spread of deserts, erosion and salinity. Men of the Trees will use their $35,000 grant to fund revegetation of a highly degraded landscape in the wheatbelt of Morbinning, east of Perth. Applications for the 2012 community grants scheme are now open. For details go to http://australianethical.com.au/ supporting-community.

DEEP SEA ARCADE HAVE BEEN TOURING ACROSS THE COUNTRY WITH SPECIAL GUESTS THE CAIROS AND WOE AND FLUTTER IN TOW. THEIR FIRST MELBOURNE SHOW AT THE PHOENIX PUBLIC HOUSE SOLD OUT, AND THEIR HOMAGE TO 90S BEAT, NORTHERN ROCK â€™Nâ€™ ROLL AND MADCHESTER SOUNDS CONTINUES TO PACK ROOMS EVERYWHERE. Tell me how the tour has been going. Itâ€™s great! Itâ€™s the first bunch of gigs weâ€™ve done where everyone knows the words and yells them at us. Itâ€™s a nice feeling. As your debut album, is Outlands the album that you set out to make? Definitely. It was a long time in the making and we did everything we could to make it sound exactly how we wanted it to, while driving managers, record labels, recording engineers and families completely round the bend. What would you do differently if you had another shot? Itâ€™s hard to say. We recorded a lot of the songs several times in several different ways before we felt they were finished, so I suppose I could say weâ€™d like to have found that perfect process first go every time. But that would be unrealistic. I think all the songs went through all the necessary roads to completion. If anything, it wouldâ€™ve been nice to do a couple more of the songs with Dan Grech (the Kooks, The Vaccines) in the UK. Everything he touched seemed to turn to gold quite effortlessly. But like I said, weâ€™re very happy with the outcome. What were the big surprises for you in the recording process? Granite City. This one was a bit of an underdog that turned out to be one of our faves. It was recorded in one take with the full band playing in a live room in Sydneyâ€™s Rancom Street Studios. It just worked straight away and we were all very pleasantly surprised. We mixed it with a guy from London called Time And Space
Machine, who is primarily a remix artist. He had an awesome take on the song that was equally as surprising as the recording process. It became something we hadnâ€™t imagined but totally loved.
a greater uptake of your music? Yes definitely, weâ€™ve been very lucky with all that album of the week business. Our audiences used to be made up of mostly familiar faces and thatâ€™s definitely changed. How do you bridge that gap between album and live Also I did a fantastic underwater face plant in Byron last time we were there. I saw a physio who turned out to be show; how do you adapt what you present on stage a fan of the band. Weird things like that are happening in relation to your album sound? The stage show is more. The recognition I mean, not the face planting. definitely more rock â€™nâ€™ roll. Itâ€™s louder and rawer, which just comes naturally from trying to create something Any plans for world domination? Of course! Duh. energetic. Weâ€™ve spent a lot of time as a support band If youâ€™re referring to overseas touring, yes we will be heading to the UK and hopefully the US later this year. Itâ€™ll over the past couple of years, trying to do a fast, nasty be our third UK trip and we generally have a blast over in-ya-face kind of set to win over all the people whoâ€™ve never heard of us. Itâ€™s only on this tour that weâ€™ve started there. Weâ€™ve always been keen to remain Aussies though. We like beaches and huge burgers too much. playing some of the slower songs on the album. Thatâ€™s been a lot of fun and I think we present them really well. What should we expect for your Byron show? Lots of Iâ€™ve noticed young couples romancing each other during songs, as well as a showcase of Carlosâ€™s new-found golf that part of the set, which is a good sign. skills. Youâ€™ve had Album of the Week across several mediaâ€Ś Deep Sea Arcadeâ€™s Outlands album out now. Catch has that helped lift the bandâ€™s profile?

The Byron Shire Echo June 19, 2012 21
See Mandy live at www.echonetdaily.net.au
PROUD TO BE A SLUT I remember the first time someone called me a slut. I was 16 and it had been scribbled on the back seat of the school bus, for everyone to see. Actually, I think it was put there mainly for me to see. In big black writing it said ‘Mandy Nolan is a Slut’. I was mortified. I went home and cried. I’d had one boyfriend, maybe two, alright, three. I couldn’t understand why anyone would write something as hurtful and unfair as that. I laughed it off, but why had I been singled out as ‘slut’? In a small town ‘SLUT’ is a stain that doesn’t wash away over night. In fact it doesn’t wash off at all. It seeps under your skin, a powerful psychic toxin that makes you feel ashamed of who you are. I wasn’t a slut. I was just a regular 16-year-old girl. Now almost 30 years later, I’d say that they’re finally right. Maybe they were clairvoyant. I am a slut. In keeping with the original definition of the word back in 1402, I am a dirty, untidy and slovenly woman. Anyone of the dozen or more men I’ve shacked up with over the years will attest that I am a fairly disappointing housewife. (I am marginally more impressive in the bedroom, however.) I also meet the modern definition of the word: I have been a
sexually promiscuous woman. You don’t end up with five children to three different blokes without being a bit of a player. Everyone on my Medicare card (or should I say two cards – we don’t all fit on one) has a different last name. It looks more like a census then a health card. There has been a sexual revolution, we have the right to vote, to work for equal pay. So why is it that when it comes to matters of sexuality that words like Slut still have such power? There is no equivalent word for men, and in many instances men, particularly the younger ones, are probably more sexually active than most women. But that’s okay because adventurous male sexuality is natural, but for women it’s not. It’s wrong. Yes, men can be called sluts. ‘He’s such a slut.’ But it doesn’t have negative connotations. It’s like a product endorsement. He’s a bad boy. Bad boys are sexy. Men are studs, or gigolos, or Lotharios. Men ‘can’t keep it in their pants’. Meaning I guess that men can’t control their sexuality because it is after all a natural part of masculinity. As opposed to sexually active women, whose behaviour has them cast as dirty little lowdown whores.
Elizabeth Lord and Leigh James tip their tonsils in tribute at the Mullum Bowlo on Saturday.
THE KING AND I
When you say ‘she’s a slut’, basically you’re saying, ‘I have no responsibility for my action. Slut did it. That dirty little slut made me rape her.’ Slut is a harsh word. It even sounds ugly. It hurts. It’s meant to. It’s meant to make you feel worthless. It’s a violent word used to diminish your power, like nigger or poof or faggot. It’s a word that won’t just disappear, and it’s my belief that, as in the gay community, and the African-American community, that words of bigotry and abuse need to be disempowered. Such is the power of Slutwalk, an in-your-face march against victim blaming and slut shaming. Reclaim the word, and reclaim our power.
All sluts welcome – daughters, mothers, grandmothers and great grandmothers. Slutwalk – wear red, white or black, 12 noon I am amazed that the slut culture I grew up with is stronger than Railway Park in Byron this Saturday with a ever. My post-feminist daughters are subjected to the same forum to follow at 3pm at the YAC. (Sons, insidious ideologies perpetuated by their peers, both male and fathers, grandfathers and great grandfathers female, by authority figures, by the media, that I was. The surest way also welcome.) to shame a woman is to call her a slut. Where he can’t keep it in his Read more of Mandy in her new book, pants because of course as we all know, the penis is an entity free of What I Would Do If I Were You, available consciousness, ethics or guilt, the dirty little female, well she is the at all good bookshops cause. It is always her fault.
LIVE MUSIC The Troubadour Reunion tour of Carole King and James Taylor was the second-highest grossing international musical tour of 2010, with a significant amount of the proceeds going toward environmental charities. At the Brisbane concert local musicians and husband and wife Leigh James and Elizabeth Lord were invited backstage to meet them both. This was an important moment for them both as King and Taylor have played a pivotal role in their own musical careers. This all came about after Leigh went to the States to celebrate his 50th birthday in 2009, and while there saw James Taylor and ended up with an invitation from the man himself for us to come back and meet him and Carole when they were here for their Troubadour Reunion tour in 2010. Now, three years on, Elizabeth is doing the same trip to celebrate her 50th, planning to meet James again, and, as Lord says will ‘hopefully convince him to record one of our songs! I’m couchsurfing my way around the entire month of July and taking a video camera with me to take footage for a film clip for a song I have just recorded with Bobby Singh and jazz bassist Jonathan Zwartz, called Lifting The Veil. Elizabeth and Leigh have enjoyed playing and singing their repertoire over the years, and have decided to feature some of their most-loved Carole King and James Taylor songs in an intimate concert. Expect to hear classics such as Fire and Rain, I Feel The Earth Move, How Sweet it Is, It’s Too Late, Mexico, So Far Away, Carolina In My Mind, Will You Still Love Me Tomorrow, Handyman and many more… Along with the cream of the Taylor/King repertoire will be some of Leigh and Elizabeth’s original compositions, some of which have been highly commended in both the International Songwriting Competition and the Song of the Year 2012. Martha Baartz, a fabulous sax player friend of ours, will be on the gig too, and we will be featuring some of our new material as well as the cream of the Taylor/ King covers.
She is the Eve who caused Adam’s fall from Paradise. She corrupted Free Will. She is evil. She led him on. She got drunk. She wore a short skirt. She screwed his mate but wouldn’t screw him. It’s not his fault, because after all she asked for it. Not literally of course, she didn’t say ‘Rape me’ or ‘Assault Me’ or ‘Diminish Me’. She was just there. She existed.
TALKING ABOUT STICKY FINGERS The four-piece Newtown misfits The Sticky Fingers are mis-spending their youth while we watch. And it’s as colourful as that review suggests: a melodic, mega-hectic mash of psychedelic, pop and roots. Music to throw shapes to. The Sydney-based four-piece (sometimes five-piece) are delivering a refreshing vibe to Australian music. The band E BYRON TH began their rise when AT S AM LLI WI HIE RIC ON FRIDAY drummer Beaker and BREWERY BUDDHA BAR bass player Paddy Fingers met busker Dylan Frost one night in early 2009 outside the Coopers Arms hotel in Newtown. Dylan, fresh from NZ, was on the streets with his guitar busking for coin outside the pub. ‘We met him,’ Patty says, ‘when the Coopers Arms bouncer started hassling us and telling us we should give him some money’. Frost’s melodic sense brings the Kiwi spirit and melodic lineage to the band. Frost, the youngest member of the band (the rest of the band are 20), has 19 years of life and a hundred years of heartbreak in his voice. And the band surround it in textural and psyche-y, atmospheric melodies punched out by the Sticky Fingers’ rhythm section’s blunt soundscapes. Hotel Great Northern on Saturday.
INVISIBLE LANTERNS Weaving a potent blend of nostalgia and innovation, Invisible Friend capture the imagination of audiences with their distinct original sound, and genre-mashing roots, blues and funk-influenced songs. They have recruited fans worldwide with their trademark soulful multilead harmonies, ingenious arrangements and infectious songwriting brilliance. Having been likened to so many, and citing influences such as vocal supergroups Crosby Stills Nash and Young, Cream, and Supertramp, to the psychedelics of Pink Floyd, The Moody Blues, and The Beatles… add to this the dirty blues, funk and soul of giants Parliament and War and Sly and The Family Stone – Invisible Friend has been described as ’a group you wished you both belonged to, and discovered’ (Tony Bates – Highland FM). Catch Invisible Friend when they share the lineup with VulgarGrad and a host of exciting acts at the street party for the Lismore Lantern Parade, Saturday.
BABIES ARE SONS OF BEACHES After slaying them at the Beach Hotel last Thursday, the boy/girl attack (so technically sons and daughters) of Shybaby continue their trek down the northern rivers beach towns when they return to The Lennox this Saturday from 9pm to pump out their carefully chosen collection of classics old and new in a show designed to get you to shake your groove thing and then shake it some more. Bands from far-flung places might see this as a dream tour but for Shybaby it’s a chance to show local lovers of great tunes that it’s all going on right here in our own backyards. Don’t miss your chance to party like there’s no tomorrow with your brothers/sisters from another mother/mister and don’t be shy, baby.
LOVING LOREN One of northern NSW’s most-loved folk/roots minstrels, Loren, is set to release his new single, You are the One, on 29 June. The digital release comes nine months after launching his third studio album, Listening to the Moon. The song is testament to the power of understated simplicity, where the story takes centre stage.

culture MELBOURNE INTERNATIONAL COMEDY FESTIVAL ROADSHOW It’s one hell of a mouthful, and it’s one hell of a lineup. With Dave Thornton as MC and featuring Josh Earl: a hip, sharp, loveable musical comedy star in the making. He has consistently moved through the ranks, supporting Rod Quantock and Arj Barker in his early years on stage. As a solo artist he now sports five sold-out Festival shows under his belt. Josh also writes and performs the Lime Champions sketch show on Melbourne radio Triple R and has appeared on Triple J, ABC local radio 774, Stand Up Australia comedy channel and the Laughapalooza DVD. Also featuring Tommy Dean: Arizona raised, now a resident of Sydney, American standup comedian Tommy Dean occupies the top echelons of Australia’s headline comedy artists. Tommy’s astute, clean, observational AKMAL, HEA comedic style consistently makes him DLINING AT THE CURRU a stand-out winner with the theatre MBIN RSL O N audiences, corporate clients, festival SATURDAY 7 JULY producers, TV and radio shows alike. Kate McLennan has gained a reputation as one of Australia’s funniest ladies, most notably working as a character comedian on The Mansion for the Comedy Channel and the 2009 Logies Road to Gold sketches. Most recently Kate was named The Age M-ie magazine ‘Comedy Star on the Rise’ and awarded the Kit Denton Disfellowship with co-writer Kate McCartney to develop their TV series Bleak. Kate will perform her new solo show Homeward Bound, which blends standup and her trademark characters, for the 2012 Adelaide Fringe and Melbourne Comedy Festival. And introducing Kevin Kropinyeri – one of the fastestrising stars in Australian comedy. He’s a one-man whirlwind that will have you holding your sides laughing, as he shares tales of growing up, marriage and the particular, absurd challenges of life as an Aboriginal Australian family man. A high-energy performer, Kevin is sharp, likeable, silly and measured; mixing keen observational standup with joyfully ridiculous physical comedy. Friday at the Ballina RSL. Doors open 7.30pm, show starts 8pm. $25pp.
LIGHTING THE WAY It’s almost midwinter, the time when Lismore, City Of Lanterns, is flooded by a river of light that winds like a medieval pageant through its streets to the river. As part of the celebrations, the heart of Lismore will radiate with the sound and colour of The Lantern Carnivale. At the bustling Market de Light, you will find local handmade treasures and much delicious food and drink. In addition, young and old will be entertained by a vast array of music and entertainment, including our visiting guests of honour, VulgarGrad. VulgarGrad are that mysterious band of Russian criminals who have come to steal your hearts and wallets and anything else that’s not nailed down.

THE LOCAL FACES BEHIND SPLENDOUR While Splendour in the Grass draws on an impressive international and national creative pool, its the local yokels who provide some of the most iconic symbols and unique experiences of Splendour, from chanting monks and painted faces to tipis and chai. The Global Village is just one of the uniquely themed ‘Byron’ experiences. Curator is Kate Little of Mullumbimby. A resident of Byron Shire since 1999, Kate has worked with the festival since its inception and is excited to see it return to Byron Bay. In addition to her work with Splendour In The Grass, Kate was also the BITION driving force behind the recent HI EX S IA EL H AC PE Spirit Festival. ‘The Global Village AT AY ID FR OPENING RON is all about collating the various BY Y, ER LL GA IS COSMOS RY ESTATE aspects of our community into ARTS AND INDUST a creative expression of unity – acting locally but thinking globally,’ Kate said. The legendary Tipi Forest has become a Splendour institution. It returns to Byron under the coordination of Ocean Shores resident D Bleach, who has presided over it since 2005. D’s first event in Byron, Creative Terra, was way back in 1992 and he has been in the background of countless local events throughout the ensuing 20 years. Much to the relief of parent punters, the KidzKlub will also make a return in 2012. Splendour’s KidzKlub has been operated by Trudi Fitzgerald of trusted local NCH J KELLY LY company Byron Bay KidzKlub SACRED: D E WITH SH P U since being added to the S M A E T Y N BRE WER program back in 2005. Trudi lives J AT BYRO AR ON in Bangalow and is proud to be BUDDHA B JUNE the mother of three born-and30 Y SUNDA bred Byron Shire kids! Splendour weekend awaits – but sadly it is a soldout event. 27–28–29 July.
AMNESTY FUNDRAISING FILM NIGHT Pighouse Flicks is holding a fundraising night for Amnesty International on Thursday, screening the beautiful film Trishna. Tickets can be purchased from the cinema for $20, which includes a yummy free popcorn! There will be raffles and a mysterious door prize to win. Come along, grab a few friends and support a great cause. All proceeds from the tickets goes directly to Amnesty. Doors open at 7.30 and the film will begin around 8pm.
COMEDY FOR A CAUSE Lindsay Webb, international headline comedian, as seen on Rove, Stand-Up Australia, The Footy Show and Good News Week, will bring his unique, rapid-fire comedy to Mullumbimby. A bloke that everyone can relate to, he has headlined all over the world, as well as breaking the record for the longest solo standup show where he went for 38 hours and six minutes – this guy can talk! Joining him on stage is organiser and funny mother Ellen Briggs, who will host the evening with her own blend of comedy and local tales, sure to leave a few people banning their children from playing with hers. There are great prizes up for grabs and some fabulous auction items as well. Friday at the Mullumbimby Ex-Services Club. Doors open at 6pm for dinner, show starts at 8pm. $30 dinner and show, $20 show only. Tickets available at the Mullumbimby Newsagency.
THE AKMAL FACTOR When Akmal Saleh started out in comedy he called himself Peter. At that time in Australian comedy, the likelihood of comedy rooms booking a bloke called Akmal was remote. Australia was still very much in the grip of a cultural cringe. Ironically it’s this cultural cringe, and Australia’s changing sense of identity, that has made Saleh such an important voice in the Australian Comedy scene. ‘Presence and panache make Saleh stand out among standups,’ claimed the Sydney Morning Herald after a reviewer saw his show, and it’s true. Akmal has a natural charm and confidence and he holds the stage with that special magic that Danni Minogue has told us is X factor. Although some would dispute that he’s far less gaudy, much more self-deprecatory, and has an incredible warmth. He has the Akmal Factor. Akmal headlines at the Currumbin RSL’s Side Splitting Comedy with Ellen Briggs as support and Mandy Nolan as MC on Saturday 7 July. $29 /$35. Doors and bar open 6.30pm. Show starts at 7.30pm. www. currumbinrsl.com.au. 07 5534 7999

of stage and screen, Jacek Koman, VulgarGrad are the only band in the country that play music by, for, and about Russian thieves: raucous drinking songs, melancholy waltzes, manic oompah and hot Sovietera swing. Be prepared for gun-slinging, vodka-swilling, foul-mouthed disorder, and watch out for the biggest, most triangular instrument around, the contrabass balalaika. You will dance or the trumpeter will shoot you. Music, burlesque, kids’ activities – starting at midday and running until late, it’s a free day of family fun. Lantern Parade will light the streets at dusk, and culminates with spectacular fiery finale!

s r a t S WITH LILITH Winter solstice’s shortest day and longest night is the year’s best for reassessment, with Gemini new moon positively popping with light-bulb bright ideas…
E ARIES: This week’s best option is accepting that a huge readjustment is occurring in both your own personal growth and the world around you. You’re being challenged to exchange destructive beliefs and attitudes for new behaviours to improve your relationships with everyone and everything in your life. F TAURUS: This week’s for hunting and gathering information, then simplifying it from confusing into what’s useful and useable. You could also find out more than you might want to know about people you’re involved with: the good, bad, ugly and wonderful – sometimes all in the same person. G GEMINI: Jupiter’s presently working group dynamics to your advantage, opening up formerly closed situations, bring richer opportunities and restocking your skills kitbag with a groovy set of new tools. This week’s Gemini new moon also buffs up your popularity and personal appeal for promo and PR purposes… H CANCER: Gemini new moon synthesises and integrates the variety of things you’ve been feeling lately. Midweek Cancer moon’s ideal for hibernation and reflection. Then end-of-week Sun joining Mercury for your birthday month in Cancer has you stepping out confidently, with a fresher, more optimistic outlook.
She is travelling Australia to promote her book Beyond Tribal Loyalties – Personal Stories of Jewish Peace Activists, which also contains contributions by many Australian Jewish writers. She says: ‘I was brought up on stories of the Holocaust. I was told that perhaps even more despicable than the Nazis themselves were all those who knew what was happening and allowed it to happen. Jews have always felt abandoned by a world full of bystanders. Being a bystander doesn’t mean doing nothing. It means collaborating. And I don’t want to be a collaborator.’ Avigail will speak at Byron Community Centre on Saturday, Veranda Room, 12 till 2. Entry by gold coin donation and copies of her book will be available for sale.
A DARK PROPOSITION Nick Cave is definitely a Renaissance man: singer, songwriter, poet, pianist, actor, novelist, and now screenwriter. Is there anything the man can’t do? Proposition screens at the Star Court in Lismore, and this is what Lord Cave had to say: ‘In the real the conditions under which this shoot happened were hellish with extreme heat and the things that make outback of Australia wriggle were en masse. No need for effects environmentally in that department. It is the current zeitgeist of historic reassessment and scenic rewriting of our Australian history that is the full subtext here. Perhaps a pill not taken too readily, it is a political hot potato. This is the turning of the worm a far as our flag-waving notions of adventure in the bush and early days are exposed. Here is the biblical dark side of Cain and Abel in the throes of involution and psychic drama turned nasty and sunburnt. Ironic and dark, thought provoking and grittily violent. However, the film is a master work little accepted on its release, but time will be the jury here.’ No doubt a dark romp in the Aussie psyche. Star Court Theatre in Lismore on Saturday at 8pm.
PEACH ART Artworks by Peach Elias – recent oil paintings, chalk pastel, watercolour and wax encaustic pieces of Byron Bay and of past travels to India form her new show looking at the most easterly point on our east coast to ‘giddy heights’ of the Himalayas. Opening night: Friday with music on vinyl, grassroots poetry, mulled wine and Indian snacks from 6pm. Show open daily at Gallery Cosmosis: 2/22 Brigantine St, A & I Park, Byron Bay. Open: Tues–Sun, 10 am–4 pm.
I LEO: If recent upheavals had you singing the blues, this week breathes new life into your sector of fabulous ideas, so get started on smart concepts now while they’re hot. Jupiter in your community sector has you handling problematic shenanigans with your usual creative ingenuity. J VIRGO: Getting rattled over minor matters only adds extra tension to already-stretched tempers, so choose your words carefully this week to short-circuit disputes and bickering. You’re the sign of personal rituals, so use winter solstice for its traditional purpose to put some nurturing new routines in place. K LIBRA: This week’s new moon brings changes of heart and mind, along with important insights to reboot enthusiasm to taking what you do further, in new directions. Decisions and agreements get easier as ideas and intentions align to show you encouraging results in the coming months. L SCORPIO: Rumours and hearsay are rife this week, but there’s always more than one side to a story or situation. Don’t second-guess what others are feeling – let them tell you themselves. An intermediary could help provide an objective perspective in a power struggle that’s potentially costly.
MS AGITTARIUS: Your ruling planet’s entry into Gemini heralds huge improvements in your interpersonal communications. But its challenge is staying focused during Jupiter in Gemini’s kaleidoscopic, fabulously distracting, multi-directional information explosion. So choose your path, then aim your Sagittarian arrow and follow it. N CAPRICORN: This week supports domestic changes along with improvements to work and health routines. Deleting activities that drain you, saying no to exhausters. Deciding between what makes your heart sink and who makes it zing, because the present gregarious star scenario says a big yes to stimulation… O AQUARIUS: Nonstop chatterboxes may not deliver quite the calm serenity you hoped for, but get used to it because ranting’s on this week’s agenda. When you can get a word in, remember people are less impressed by what you know than how you make them feel. P PISCES: While this week of world change won’t be entirely stress free, life’s still looking lively in the Piscesphere with early-week new moon giving mundane worries an uplift, and late-week moonshine glinting on your supple self surfing the social slipstream with a savvy swish.

Even better, Brolin, as the unforeseeable in store to make 29-year-old K, bears an uncanny the journey worthwhile. There is resemblance to Jones – right here and, even if it is a bit mushy, down to his taciturn manner and it is agreeably touching. Barry Texan accent.

America still in the grip of racial discrimination (including a wicked scene in which he argues with two redneck cops that just because he’s black doesn’t mean he stole the swank convertible – even though he did), but Sonnenfeld, understanding that his audience hasn’t come to be preached to, allows the charismatic Smith to win the white crowd with his velvet glove. ~ John Campbell
Rock Of Ages First up, we need to remember that this not meant to be taken seriously or honoured at film fests. Based on a successful Broadway show, it’s nothing more than a multiplex money-maker aimed at a demographic that might be nostalgic for their halcyon days of big hair and power-chord rock anthems. Just because it never pretends to be anything else, however, doesn’t mean that it’s worth the effort, although I freely admit that my distaste for the music of the period soured my enthusiasm. Directed by Adam Shankman, who gave us the exuberant Hairspray, the indicators were that, even if it was a spoof, it would make no attempt at the genuine, and rare, irreverence of Spinal Tap. Neither, with its big-budget gloss, would it settle for the sweetness of Almost Famous. At its core is a lame teen romance. It’s 1987 and Oklahoma hayseed Sherrie (Julianne Hough) arrives in Los Angeles to make it as a rock star. She meets Drew (Diego Boneta), singer in his own wannabe band, and they fall for each other. Because true love never runs smoothly, their relationship is twisted and tested by the activities of legendary Staycee Jaxx (Tom Cruise), his greasy manager, Paul (Paul Giametti), and a marvellously sweaty and swarthy Alec Baldwin with long grey hair as Dennis, the deeply indebted owner of the club where Jaxx began his iconic career. The performances of these three are the film’s saving grace, notwithstanding Baldwin’s unenviable task of convincing us that he might be sexually attracted to his go-for, Lonny, the rather tiresome Russell Brand. Cruise in particular is a knock-out. We saw him go right over the top as the bullying studio executive in Rolling Thunder and again he is let off the leash to do a thorough job on the tattooed, self-important, heavy-metal sex god – and he does it with eerie sincerity. (Footnote: Having been in the crowd at the previous night’s State of Origin, the movie did not come within cooee of the footy’s pure theatre.) ~ John Campbell

BALLINA FAIR CINEMAS
A Separation Politics, prejudices and patronising endorsements sometimes play more than just an insignificant part in determining the winner of an Academy Award for best foreign film; writer/director Asghar Farhadi’s superb drama proves that a riveting story with great performances need be the glittering prize’s only essential criterion (it and The Artist make up the Oscars’ best double in yonks). It opens with Nader (Peyman Moadi) and his wife Simin (Leila Hatami) speaking directly to camera – to you. Stating their case for divorce before a judge, both claim the right to keep their young daughter, Termeh (Serena Farhadi). The couple is in intractable opposition, and when Simin leaves the household Nader employs pregnant Razieh (Sareh Bayat) to help care for his Alzheimer’s-striken father. A misunderstanding and an apparently minor accident result in tragedy. The perplexing thing for the audience is that nobody is clearly right or wrong in what they do and say. How often are we led – browbeaten in many cases – to favour one side over the other? Mainstream cinema is so dominated by the adversarial paradigm of good versus bad, with heavy-handed music prodding our responses, that thinking about what we are seeing has largely become an optional process. Compared with the green-screen mega-duds that arrive week after week in the multiplexes, A Separation has been made on a shoestring, relying solely on plot, dialogue and characterisation (the performances are brilliant). External scenes have been shot with a hand-held, obviously hidden camera – it is unlikely

THURSDAY 21 ABC 1
1. Woody Allen (seen right with Diane Keaton) has had an illustrious career as a filmmaker, albeit a little raggedly in his later years. He has been able to make cinema goers laugh and think, which is more than many directors achieve. ABC2 pays tribute to the man and his work this Saturday, beginning with Woody Allen: A Documentary at 8.30pm and followed at 10.15pm by the very popular Annie Hall, which won four Oscars including Best Picture. 2. Penelope Cruz and Tom Cruise star in a perversely dreamy thriller called Vanilla Sky (Eleven, Sunday, 8.30pm) – an intriguing mix of scifi, erotica, lucid dreaming and romance. This is the American version directed by Cameron Crowe; some reckon the 1997 original Abre los ojos (Open Your Eyes) by Alejandro Amenábar and Mateo Gil was better, but you’ll find much of interest here. The earlier version might have provided inspiration to Richard Linklater’s 2001 Waking Life, a meditation on lucid dreaming. ‘Sanity is a madness put to good uses; waking life is a dream controlled.’ – George Santayana.

Were I single, I would much rather meet someone new around a very long table groaning with platters, wine flowing in the company of strangers, than via RSVP. With which I had a brief and unsatisfactory flutter in the period last year when the man I love and I temporarily cleaved off in different directions. I had just heard about the latest Sarah Swan’s 100-Mile lunch and thought how fantastic a notion: an Asian feast at Bangalow Guest House, that lovely old building I had always wanted an excuse to step inside, an eclectic mix of guests ranging from crystal experts to local rugby boys. ‘You’re bound to meet a gorgeous architect,’ a friend urged. I didn’t end up going, nor – and just as well as it turned out – did I meet the gorgeous architect – but I did eventually meet Sarah Swan. The New Zealand-born chef has been living in the Shire for less than a year, having moved up from Sydney with her husband for what has been a sea-change in spirit more than in actuality: she and Dan were living right on the beach at Manly. Now they are on a property at Myocum. For the last eight years she has been handling PA duties and social media for Neil Perry and his Rockpool empire – it is only very recently that she has begun to hand over the reins to someone else. Eight years, then, out of restaurant kitchens, so it is hardly surprising that there were certain elements of the hospitality industry to which Sarah would ultimately be drawn back. This, after all, is a girl who knew she wanted to be a chef from the age of fourteen, whose mother and grandmother were both great cooks. The family moved to Australia when she was seventeen and Sarah did her apprenticeship at the Sheraton Wentworth. She spent three years in London working for chef Peter Thornleigh in Mayfair, the only woman in a kitchen of sixteen men, putting in ninety-hour weeks. Back in Australia she started working at the Bayswater Brasserie in Sydney with Tony Pappas, an experience she tells me was ‘amazing. He really opened my eyes, and ran a fabulous kitchen’. After that she sous-cheffed at the Bathers Pavilion under Genevieve Harris for five years, where her love of Asian food began, then it was Wokpool under the incomparable Kylie

Kwong. ‘That was really learning the nuts and bolts of curry pastes from scratch,’ she tells me. ‘We were really busy!’ Then – following several months’ break in India – it was XO at Potts Point, the short-lived Neil Perry venture where she was acting head chef. And ultimately on to Rockpool itself. ‘Neil’s been the greatest influence on me in terms of teaching me about produce and how to handle it with integrity,’ she tells me. It was Neil who instilled in her the sense of provenance and locality as far as ingredients were concerned, the importance of seasonality and respecting its rhythms – and who ultimately informed her desire to continue to cook with a focus on small local events, away from a city and away from a restaurant kitchen. Sarah hosted the first of such events while she and Dan were still based in Sydney. They had always come to the area for holidays, six or seven times a year; Brunswick Heads had been the first port of call for her UK-born husband when he arrived in Australia. ‘There’s only a couple of places in the world where there’s a quality of light,’ Sarah told me, ‘and the other one is New Zealand. Up here it’s the perfect mix of urban and coast.’ Sarah still maintains the website for all seven Rockpool venues, but what she really wants to develop are these events. ‘Essentially it’s a love of food and wine and people and bringing it all together,’ she says. ‘A bunch of people, an interesting demographic mix, put them together with shared plates plus wines and create conversation…’. So far her lunches have all been at the Bangalow Guest House but she is keen to vary her venues, to be mobile. The next event will probably be in July and she is thinking slow roasts and possibly even at the Myocum property – but meanwhile is open to the concept of taking her feasts into private homes. For anyone wishing to book Sarah – enjoying thereby all the advantages of a restaurant in the comfort of your own home – she can be reached on 0413 634 858. I didn’t actually regret not meeting the gorgeous architect – but apparently the lunch I missed out on was spectacular, and I definitely regretted that!
