Hoops of fun at NAIDOC Byron events policy

rejected by the state

Around three hundred people marched for NAIDOC week (National Aborigines and Islanders Day Observance Committee) last Thursday in Byron Bay. It was a wonderful day of celebration, education and entertainment held next

to the Peace Pole on Main Beach. This year is also the 40th anniversary of the Aboriginal tent embassy and 20 years of upholding of the Mabo decision. A sand mandala celebrating Aboriginal and Islander Culture and the embassy was placed lovingly by

many hands on the lawn beside the beach and the boys from the National Parks cooked up a ripper free BBQ. ■ See video of this story on today’s

Chief bureaucrat to address Mullum hospital meeting A public meeting has been called to allow the region’s top health bureaucrat to explain his proposal to replace night-shift doctors at Mullumbimby hospital emergency department (ED) with video-linking technology. Chris Crawford, the chief executive of the Northern NSW Local Health District, will be available to answer questions, and the meeting will be

held at the Mullumbimby High School hall on August 2 from 7pm. Frank Lynch from the Save Mullum Hospital Steering Committee told The Echo, ‘As this is the first community meeting attended by a representative of the Local Health District administration, it is an important meeting for residents and all are urged to attend and to have their concerns heard.’

Mr Lynch says the committee is collecting and collating personal experiences about Mullum hospital’s ED compared to other EDs. ‘Please submit any such experiences to, leave a note in the submissions box at Mullumbimby Newsagency or contact me on 6684 0242. And please come along to the meeting on August 2.’

The state government has jettisoned Byron Shire Council’s events policy, effectively ending a protracted stoush between event promoters and festival supporters on the one hand and council and resident groups on the other. The policy intended to limit major music events with more than 6,000 attendees in the shire to two per year: Splendour and Bluesfest. The council attempted to amend its Local Environment Plan to include the policy, a move that required state government approval. The letter that sealed the policy’s fate came from the NSW planning and infrastructure department, dated July 1, and says that under the Environmental and assessment act 1979 (s59(2)(b) the proposed ‘major events clause’ should not proceed. ‘I have formed the opinion that the proposal is not in the public interest,’ said director general Sam Haddad. ‘I believe matters of concern to the council can adequately be assessed through the normal development application process.’ Earlier this year the NSW Planning Assessment Commission (PAC), appointed by the state government, approved a trial for three annual events at North Parklands festival site in Yelgun including Splendour In The Grass. That decision essentially gave the shire two different policies for the two major festivals to operate under. Bluesfest director Peter Noble, while celebrating the overruling of the policy, was critical of what he called council’s lack of due process. He said his solicitors ‘continuously questioned Byron Council as to why they have not obtained their own legal advice regarding the illegality of this policy over the past four years, and why the majority

of elected councillors have not voted for this to be done.’ Council’s spokesperson, however, told The Echo that legal advice was received, ‘but it’s a matter for them should they wish to waive the privilege that rightly attaches to that advice.’ Other points of contention for Mr Noble included numerous submissions opposing the policy, which he says were ignored. ‘Over four years, and the three times the policy was placed on public display asking for submissions, the vast majority objected to the policy, including more than 13,500 signed objections to the policy all up!’ He said in a media release ‘The Byron Events Policy, as it existed, which had no equal in Australia in terms of its restrictions, will now soon be history and the arts – and music-loving community of Byron is rejoicing.’

Council defends Byron Council defended what it saw as a need to ensure sustained protection of the environment, resident amenity and the continued success of the tourism industry. Council’s acting executive manager of environment and planning Sharyn French said the ‘overall importance of these issues remain despite the planning department’s decision.’ ‘Byron Shire is a small, regional community that hosts 50 visitors for every resident annually. With about 1.5 million visitors a year, Council thinks it is appropriate that there is a framework in place for helping it, on behalf of the community, to decide what is sustainable in terms of environmental protection, resident and visitor wellbeing, as well as what the quality and quantity of tourism should be. ‘Without a proper process in place

The theatre of youth binge drinking to different age groups. When asked how the group came up with idea for last year’s performance piece she said the group had brainstormed ideas. ‘We developed our performance from a lot research and personal experiences,’ she said. ‘I believe it’s important for the youth to see these situations so they can identify them and be educated about them in the future.’

Byron Youth Theatre in Education (BYTE) is giving young local actors the chance to come up with performances focusing on issues all teens may experience. The theatre company is funded solely on grants and was established to provide theatre training for young people so they could devise educational performances. The start-up of the company was funded by Byron Youth Service (BYS) and Project U-Turn to help tackle binge drinking. ‘We go around to the schools,’ director Lisa Apostolides said. ‘Our first performance the company did was called Angie’s Story and we took that to Byron High and Mullumbimby High.’ Binge drinking seems to be coming back to the forefront in Byron Shire and the work these young locals do is helping every little bit. BYTE’s ideas seem positive; they’ve even just received new

grants which will help the company to develop and hone skills. ‘We received a Northern Rivers Community Foundation grant,’ Lisa said. ‘We’ve also received a new grant, NRMA Community Grant, which will allow us to collaborate with the STEER Project.’ One of the participants from

last year’s company Tallulah Ebbs said, ‘Theatre has a powerful message and as it has the power to prevent young people from making mistakes.’ Tallulah, who was involved with BYTE for over a year, said that she found performing with the group interesting as it challenged her to perform

for managing these different interests, we risk undermining the very features of our community that make Byron Shire so special to begin with.’ When The Echo asked Mr Noble what other mechanisms could be applied to provide an equitable solution to the pressures of large-scale events, he replied ‘[it’s] not an appropriate question for me as I fully believe in presenting events for the cultural enrichment, as well as the financial benefit of our community. ‘And my track record proves over more than 20 years of presentation in Byron Shire that it does not require legislation to curb me in presenting awardwinning events here done re-

sponsibly. However, a number of councillors believe there has been a major cost to our community regarding the events policy and they do not agree our community’s purse has not been affected.’ When The Echo asked Council’s media spokesperson about the costs associated with the policy, they said that since no court action had taken place, the cost to Council was in preparing the policy. Mr Noble says he has spent around $100,000 on legal costs and a legal challenge was imminent. The Echo asked one of the proponents of the failed policy, Cr Basil Cameron, to comment but he did not respond by deadline.

Praise for Zavros’s glass works

Another building firm goes bust

Echo photographer Jeff Dawson has snapped a lot of exhibitions in his time, but he gave exceptional praise to Michael Zavros’s work currently on exhibition at the Tweed River Gallery. ‘Zavros’s hyper-realistic, often black-and-white charcoal works are unusually large, almost always poignant and are completely astounding.’ Pictured is the artist with one of his biggest fans, food critic Leo Schofield, who opened the exhibition on Friday June 29. It runs until August 12. Also exhibiting at the gallery is Byron Bay artist Rebecca Kinsey’s work UnRavelling, which was inspired through traversing between northern NSW and New York City.

Local tradesmen – many of whom are still reeling from the collapse of GJ Gardiner Ballina – have been hit again with another building company going into administration. Baseline Constructions, which has been responsible for the renovation of the Ballina Central Shopping Centre, went into receivership last week and a meeting of creditors is planned for Sydney on Wednesday. The company’s website says that it has been in business since 1993 and boasts that it ‘is committed to providing service to our clients and encompassing all their needs and objectives’. Meanwhile local tradespeople are out of pocket once again – some to the tune of hundreds of thousands of dollars. Lismore painting contractor Tony Durheim told local media his business was owed $135,000 for work stretching back to last year.

Man overboard A 36-year-old Ukraine man has been reported missing since 7pm Saturday from the bulk carrier Blue Wave off Evans Head.

A message against uranium mining Harsha Prabhu

The humble Mullum RSL hall was transformed into a psychedelic fairyland last Friday night as over 250 rainbow region punters showed up to ‘Uranium Boom Nuclear Doom’. The event was to express opposition to uranium mining in Australia, and raised funds to send international radiation and health expert Dr Helen Caldicott to Roxby Downs. Dr Caldicott will address the miners and their families on the dangers of uranium mining. Bundjalung songman Lewis Walker set the tone for the night in his welcome, saying: ‘It’s time for all us mob to come together to protect land and country.’

Greens candidates announced

Greens mayoral candidate Simon Richardson has announced his five fellow candidates who are standing for September’s council election. ‘Experience and youth,’ he says. ‘We’ve got quality in both, with decades of experience in community issues, commercial businesses, the environment, management and governance.’

Rose Wanchap ‘Rose Wanchap, over 40 years, has served on committees, boards and organisations from president to board member. She’s experienced all facets of community groups. As well as being a successful real estate agent for 36 years, Rose has given 20 per cent of her company’s profits to community causes. Rose has also honed skills as an advocate for environmental and human rights issues. Her experience in mastering the fine art of negotiation will be an important skill as councillor.

Clare Hocking ‘Clare Hocking, our youngest candidate, draws on a remarkable track record of achievement starting as a high school student working on developing

the first Indigenous exchange program in Victorian schools, then did voluntary work on an Aboriginal community called Warakurna, central WA, and campaigned in the Styx Valley in Tasmania. Now she works at Byron Community Centre as the No Interest Loan Scheme (NILS) co-ordinator, a microfinance program to assist people on low incomes.

Duncan Dey ‘Duncan Dey, a chartered civil engineer specialising in hydrology, has already served two years on Byron Shire Council, 2002–2004. Duncan has a wealth of experience in

1980 where he worked for four years as project manager at The Economist magazine. “My speciality, then and now, is problem solving,” says Jim. He then switched to journalism and on returning to Sydney became The Guardian’s Australian correspondent for a decade. Falling in love with Byron he moved here and became volunteer project officer at Byron Community Centre raising hundreds of thousands dollars in grant money to overhaul its infrastructure.

Rhonda Khong

‘Rhonda Khong, is a young and highly energetic woman who knows only one word: yes. ‘In May 2011, she took over as co-ordinator and treasurer of Byron’s Liberation Larder and has helped it grow with new projects linking in with other community organisations to widen the reach of Larder’s services. She helped establish Larder Connect, a frozen-food initiative to assist those in need with nutritious food across the Shire. At the end of 2011, she Jim Beatson was nominated and became a ‘Jim Beatson started two of finalist for the Byron Shire VolAustralia’s best-known commu- unteer of the Year award.’ nity radio stations, 4ZZZ and 2FBi, and moved to London in ■ Rose Wanchap’s Q&A page 44

how Council works and is well prepared to scrutinise planning and engineering issues in our very wet Shire. ‘Like all the team members Duncan loves Byron Shire’s natural environment. He knows that our Shire leads Australia in preventing poor-quality development because of Greens influence on Council over the past decade. “We Greens can be relied on to reflect community values,” says Duncan.

Splendour has influence Committee to be formed for Ewingsdale facility

Splendour In The Grass directors Jessica Ducrou and Paul Pittico, pictured, have been named the second most influential names in the music business in the inaugural Australian Music Industry (AMID) Power 50 list. ‘It’s lovely to be acknowledged by our peers,’ said Ms Ducrou. ‘There are some very well deserving people in the fifty named. It’s fair to say that Paul and I are as good as the people we have around us. This is a collaborative effort’. Top of the list was Mushroom founder Michael Gudinski. Promoter Michael Chugg came in at number three.

Is this your dream retirement?

A community advisory committee will be established by Byron Council to provide input on the Ewingsdale multipurpose facility. A media spokesperson for Council said of the resolution: ‘The group will include three community representatives: one from the Byron Catchment Community, Sporting and Recreation Working Group, and two from the wider Byron Shire community. ‘Council will write to the Working Group seeking a nomination, while advertising for the two other places. The committee’s role will be to provide input to centre management. But ultimately, the centre will

be run by the party appointed to do that job by council.’ And while the issue of centre management remains unresolved, the good news in that the council remains in discussions with several interested parties. Council’s spokesperson added that discussions regarding centre management won’t have a bearing on the opening date. ‘In the meantime, staff have been appointed to ensure the multipurpose facility can be opened to the community once a schedule has been negotiated that balances the needs of the more than 30 groups who have expressed a desire to use the facility.’

Jasper’s long journey to reach potential Photo & story Eve Jeffery

Most mothers hope that their children will finish high school, or reach their athletic potential or even become the prime minister of Australia. Nadine Schafer hopes that one day her son Jasper will be able to run into her arms and call her mum. Now just 17 months old, Jasper was born with brain damage caused by the death of his twin brother Julian in utero. Basically he gave everything of himself to save his dying sibling and the effort left him depleted and starved for oxygen. Jasper began his life with cerebral palsy, microcephaly and cortical visual impairment (CVI); these conditions have significantly affected his ability to see, hear, feel and move. The Australian Institute for the Achievement of Human Potential is an organisation devoted to improving the quality of life for brain-injured children. Finding the institute has been a beacon for Nadine and Jasper’s dad Anthony, as for the most part of Jasper’s life, they have been pointed in a direction that suggests making Jasper comfortable and catering to his present state and what are deemed a his permanent physical needs rather than endeavoring to improve his ability. Current government funding does not encompass the possibility of Jasper getting any better, therefore the couple are spending every cent they have on helping their son become all he can be. Any therapy or treatment that goes beyond making him comfortable is not on the agenda. Jasper is currently benefiting from physiotherapy, osteopathy, acupuncture, physical therapy, cranio-sacral, speech therapy and hydrotherapy and

they are hoping to get a Giger MD therapy machine, which basically speeds up the ‘patterning’ process. ‘How the institute explain it is that Jasper has had a car crash in his brain,’ says Nadine. ‘The cars are stuck and we need to build a new road or bridge for the cars to get through. We do this by patterning. ‘The basic movements of life and this activates the whole central nervous system.’ The Giger, along with the water therapy, are two of the treatments that the family can do at home but, as these are seen as more than what is required for his day-to-day existence, they are not covered by any government assistance. ‘The government will spend millions on disabled children their entire lives rather than give them medical equipment and things that will help make them better so that one day

they can live lives that contribute to the community.’ To help with their expenses, Jasper was recently taken under the wing of Dreamworkers, an organisation run exclusively by volunteers who help to raise funds for individuals and charities. Dreamworkers are helping the family raise $17,000 for the Giger and another $5,000 for the software to run it. Jasper’s parents have also been advised to obtain a hydro spa so that this therapy can take place on a daily basis; they are looking at another $25,000 for the spa and necessary installation earthmoving. ‘It’s scary when you think about it that the only thing stopping us giving Jasper the opportunity to do the things we think he can do is money.’ For more information about how you can help Jasper, visit the Dreamworkers website:

Story & Photo Eve Jeffery

Three years ago Louise Owen was given the ultimate gift when she was the recipient of a donor heart. After the transplant Louise’s surgeon said ‘Your heart is fabulous’. ‘It’s all about the donation and the donor having that sense of mind to want to be a donor and not knowing when your time is up, but you have decided to be a donor. That’s a big thing. You don’t know who is going to receive your heart. It’s an absolutely open gift. ‘I don’t have any prejudices for anyone. If you’re an organ donor you’re on my list no matter what. I don’t care.’ Louise had another very close call last March when she was involved in a head-on collision on her way to teach a first aid course in Casino. She was left with a broken ankle and her pelvis broken in two places and a seatbelt burn. Thankfully her new heart coped beautifully.

you’ll hardly notice it. This is the uninspiring line pushed by Gillard, Wayne Swan and most spectacularly Craig Emerson for the last few months – certainly the one they have been emphasising since the legislation went through earlier this year. And it invites the obvious riposte: well, if we’ll hardly notice it, why are you putting us through all the angst?

But it would surely be worthwhile to point out that there are actually more advantages to pricing carbon than simply the fact of compensation by way of tax cuts and cash handouts – which most people will probably simply pocket as a long-overdue entitlement anyway. The big-picture argument about cutting, or at least slowing, greenhouse gas emissions

Most punters seem to have forgotten what it’s really all about: ameliorating the worst effects of climate change. by Mungo MacCallum If it’s not even going to make a difference to our own lives, how can it be expected to save the planet? And of course it feeds and reinforces the flat-earthers and rent-seekers on the other side of the argument, whose position has always been: (a) climate change probably isn’t happening; (b) even if it is happening it’s got nothing to do with us and we can’t do anything about it anyway; (c) even if we could do something there’s no point until the rest of the world does first; (d) and even if the rest of the world does, we’re still too small to make any difference so let’s not bother. It is probably too late for Gillard and her troops to completely demolish this cynical and selfish counsel of inertia; to do so would require a lengthy and well-organised campaign presented by people with rather more political credit than her government has left.

to keep the place reasonably liveable in the years ahead may be considered to be a bit airy-fairy for the readers of the tabloids and the listeners to the shock jocks – although even Tony Abbott claims to support the idea, as long as it doesn’t actually involve doing anything. But it could at least be pointed out that with some clarity that moving to a less carbon-dependent economy is not only essential but inevitable: even the most recalcitrant nations are at least starting to think about it, and the longer we leave it, the more it is going to cost – both in the difficulty and trauma involved, and in terms of cold, hard cash. At present the government is avoiding this line, perhaps because it sounds too threatening; Gillard would rather make Y soothing OUR noises about L going to hurt n See Mungo live at how itLreally OCAisn’t at all and if it does mummy will kiss it better.

“I never want to have to cross the street to avoid you.”

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!

getting support from other, perhaps unexpected, quarters. Last week some 300 very large businesses came out in support of a carbon price. Abbott and his troops promptly dismissed them as of no account; why, only a few of them were going to have to pay it anyway, so obviously they had no right to an opinion. Of course, exactly the same argument could be applied to Abbott and his mates, but let’s not go into that now. But in any case at the weekend the Sydney Morning Herald knocked it down by going to 40 of the largest companies among the 294 who are liable for the impost, and it made interesting reading. Nine just wanted the tax repealed. Two said it was too early to judge and 16 just didn’t want to comment – fair enough. But eight, including BHP Billiton, Shell and Caltex – big players by any measure – were unequivocally in favour and the other three said okay, but they’d like it tweaked a bit. So even among the ones carrying the can less than one in four is prepared to endorse Tony Abbott’s line; the rest are, at worst, just getting on with it. Among the voters, of course, the result is far less positive. But the fact that the top end of town seems to be moving at least slightly in her direction should give Gillard a shred of hope. Perhaps it’s time to start a scare campaign of her own: if you don’t start being sensible about the carbon price, you’ll end up with Tony Abbott as prime minister! And then we’ll really have something to panic about.

10 July 10, 2012 The Byron Shire Echo







Get Echo news daily:

Problems with potholes persist n I have written on numerous prior occasions to alert Council as to the dangerous state of Grays Lane, Tyagarah, and I have specifically suggested that the condition of this road was likely to contribute to vehicular accidents. Yesterday afternoon (July 2), I was ejected from my motorcycle after it struck one of the numerous potholes that nearly completely cover sections of this road. This occurred in broad daylight (approximately 3pm). The section of road where the accident occurred is currently so littered with deep potholes that it is basically impossible to find a trajectory that avoids all of them. I have taken photographs as evidence of this, and photographs of the injuries I sustained in the accident, and damage to my motorcycle and protective clothing. I was only travelling at approximately 20km/h when my front wheel

struck the pothole – which is probably why I am still alive to write this today. I do not know what it will take before Byron Shire Council takes these things as seriously as the residents of this Shire who have to contend with them every day. I live on Grays Lane with my wife and two young children, so we have to use this road daily. I’ve spoken with many of my neighbours who are similarly appalled at the state of this road, and who also have noted the dangers it poses to all who use it. Many have cited specific damage to their vehicles, and most have described barely-avoided accidents due to the conditions frequently encountered on this road. Slapping down 10mm of dirt with a roller every four months, only to be washed away by the very next rain, is not a sustainable solution. (The last time this was done, the maintenance

carried out lasted barely two weeks!) I implore you, as a ratepayer in this Shire, to remedy this situation in a sustainable way before someone is seriously injured – or worse.

Our own patch

elections but, after going significantly backwards last time, many thought he would have got the message that his narrow, ageing constituency was not increasing and call it a day. But perhaps not – if the current council can be sufficiently denigrated he can spruik his rates, roads, rubbish (with unchecked development) concept as the new/old solution to the ratepayers’ prayers. After all most would have forgotten his history in the Eastcott years when he had essential control of the council. Not that I have a problem with Ross on Council – he provides a useful source of local government knowledge, is always well prepared for meetings and makes his case clearly. But look out for the direction of Byron Shire should he get a majority. As a very pro-development climate change denier (now I think he accepts the warming but not the cause) he has the capacity to take us back to the 1960s.

Solution are as follows – 1637 people were processed under the Pacific Solution; 705, or 43 per cent, were settled in Australia; 491, or 30 per cent, returned to their country of origin and 441, or 27 per cent, were resettled in other nations. Most refugees arrive by plane from established refugee camps around the world run by the UNHCR. They are processed quickly. Australia takes around 14,000 per year. The boat people, on the other hand, have destroyed the papers they used to legally land in Indonesia. The fact that they moved through several countries using their papers means they are no longer refugees. They’ve escaped their tormentors.

Spruiker at work

In the last turgid issue of ‘the world according to Tucker – the Saturday Star’, we were treated to a rehash of the departed GM’s jaundiced version of a code-of-conduct action against the mayor. Promoted to the front page of the current edition we are now regaled with an uncritical version of Mr Faulkner’s take on the long saga of the state government’s grab of our council–managed caravan parks and road reserves. Our latter-day Fletcher Christian (aka former GM), before sailing into the rising sun to oversee the the fate of the embattled Norfolk Island economy, spent a deal of ratepayers’ money compiling a one-sided and selective report on the history of the parks’ seizure. Ross, who has sat through endless community submissions on the deceptive and overbearing tactics of the Department of Lands in this matter – without comment – has now decided that the GM’s report is the goods – why? I suspect it may be the launch of his re-election campaign. Cr Tucker always plays his cards close to his chest in

It’s time to ask how many more cycleways do we need in Byron Shire? Those we already have are little used. Large sums of money are being spent on cycleways for the benefit of a very small sector of the community. At the same time, roads used by the vast majority of residents of the Shire are in an appalling condition. A casual survey of traffic on Ewingsdale Road between the highway and Byron township will reveal an alarming state of affairs. Drive along this road and count the cars and the bicycles that you see.

of their government towards the Palestinians. The only mantra that all fair-minded people hold in this context is Israel’s right to exist, not that everything it does is beyond criticism, which is what she seeks to imply. And there are few more robust media outlets anywhere in the world than in Israel, where the population is vigorously critical of its government. She accuses Israel of conducting ethnic cleansing against the Palestinians. In view of the fact that the Palestinian population has grown by three million since Israel was established 64 years ago, one would have to conclude that either Israel has done a very poor job of ethnic cleansing or John Sayers Ms Abarbanel is delivering yet Bonalbo another falsehood.

total number of cars on this road in daytime usually runs to between 80 and 100. Bicycles on the recently extended cycleway usually total anything from zero to about five. It’s my understanding, from a reliable source within Council, that the funds used to build cycleways are siphoned off from state and federal funding for roads. If true, this is an appalling indictment of Council and betrays an attitude of contempt for the majority of the people who pay rates in Byron Shire. In an ideal world we would have both roads and cycle paths. We don’t live in such a world. We live in a place where our cars are hammered every time we venture onto the roads. Weaving around potholes has become a way of life in this Shire. Life in Byron Shire could and should be so much better than it is.

The North Coast’s Take two doctors, call me in the morning best online news I have an affordable solution to the doctor crisis at Mullum Hospital. Let’s import Cuban doctors. In Cuba today doctors receive a salary of $25 per month (brickies earn $50). Cuba exports thousands of doctors per year to all corners of the globe (except the USA). They exchange doctors for oil with Venezuela. Why can’t the citizens of our town pull together, raise some funds, and hire them ourselves?

Finally, she trots out the predictable canard – that Israel is an apartheid state. Are readers aware that an Arab judge, sitting in an Israeli court, recently sentenced a former president of Israel to seven years for sexual misconduct? And that’s an apartheid state? She insults those who did suffer under apartheid. As a political entity, Israel should be criticised when it errs, just as all nations should

difference, we allow our public servants to be ‘directed’ by the men behind the scenes who have arrogated to themselves the power to decide our national destiny, power incidentally they have taken without accepting responsibility for any resulting disasters! The public, the electorate our parliamentary members are allegedly representing, have no say in policy decisions. As I have written previously, we have a sham democracy. Let us now act to remove the anomaly. Firstly, let us demand to know who, not just which department is responsible for this proposal. Departments per se do not make decisions. Let us end this anonymity! Next, let us know why the decision was taken, and if it was because we can no longer afford such a ‘luxury’ we can inform them that Australia has an instrument by which we can afford

any facility we desire, if we have the necessary raw materials. That instrument was the Commonwealth Bank of Australia. Currently, I believe, the Reserve Bank of Australia. If, however, it is not a matter of finances, we must ask our leaders just what policy takes precedence, or whose policy takes precedence, over those desired by the electorate. We must also recognise that our elected representatives have been totally cowed into accepting the program for international government, to be enforced by military power, if necessary, and of course, it will be considered necessary!

I bet both the Lismore Base and St Vincent’s hospitals that Lester mentions have night doctors in attendance as well as the TV communications. The doctor in Mullumbimby Hospital is there for immediate attention to emergencies and the TV would be there for backup advice in the event that the doctor required verification of diagnosis, a second opinion or whatever. If the health service is concerned about the cost of retaining the doctor, that’s easily fixed. Just sack a couple of public servant paper-shufflers, that would cover the expense.

12 July 10, 2012 The Byron Shire Echo

Byron Shire is ludicrous in the extreme and shows a disturbing level of misinformation. There are 79 National Parks (out of a total of 799) in NSW that the minister for the environment is currently considering whether to allow licensed shooters into, for the purpose of feral animal and pest eradication. Of those 79 parks, three are in the northern rivers. They are Yabbra National Park (west of Bonalbo), Nightcap National Park (between Mullumbimby and Nimbin) and Richmond Range National Park (north of Mallanganee). If the minister does approve an extension of pest eradication in any of these three parks, there will be strict conditions applying, ie only at restricted times and restricted parts of the park.  It should be noted that last year 24,000 feral pigs, wild dogs, foxes and other feral animals were destroyed in NSW National Parks. The minister is yet to decide whether it is appropriate to allow licensed shooters into the abovementioned three parks and it may well be decided that they are not suitable.  There are no plans to allow licensed shooters into any other nation-

Is it easier to buy drugs in Nimbin or online? Dylan O’Donnell

We live in a modern society where I can admit that, like the president of the United States of America, I have tried and enjoyed marijuana at some point in my life. I can admit it without it affecting my reputation to any great extent because at least 30 per cent of Australians can say the same thing, according to study published by the federal health department. Perhaps I’ll regret that later in life when I run for office, but if a female atheist can be prime minister, surely I haven’t completely ruled myself out. Recently mainstream Australian media have been reporting about the ‘dark web’. In particular a website called ‘Silk Road’ where people can buy and sell drugs online. I wondered how easy this would be, and how it compares with a real-life drug deal. Since I graduated from the lofty academic halls of tertiary education, I have to confess I lack the street cred or the connections to pull that sort of thing off any more. I have visited Nimbin, however, where the openness of drug trade is, well, cultural. over my husband’s legs. I reported this straightaway to the council; I received a reply immediately. It was put in writing and the council replied with obvious concern about the incident. Approximately 18 months later my husband’s right leg got swollen. It took another nine months for him to be diagnosed with Non-Hodgkin’s Lymphoma aggressive. Twelve months of chemo and all the other drugs during that period did not help and he died on June 18 this year at the tender age of 70. He was a fit and healthy man before he was sprayed, having just returned from a driving holiday around Australia. The haematologist said when told this story it was potentially serious; it only takes one cell to be affected, the cell then mutates then doubles and slowly increases.

And yet even there the threat of persecution exists with local police executing random searches of outbound tourists, which can put many potential buyers off. A drug conviction seriously threatens future job prospects and international travel in a way my casual admission of prior use does not. After a few quick searches and installing the anonymising TOR software used by journalists, military, political activists and criminals, I was logged into the Silk Road Marketplace. At this point, my mind is blown. The news reports are true. The anonymity afforded by the TOR network, and the legal logistics of detecting and tracing drugs sent by Australia Post, have created the perfect arrangement for buyers and sellers. The sellers never have to meet the buyers, or even know their name as the parcels are never addressed to the actual recipient. The buyers don’t have to expose themselves by physically meeting drug dealers. For both parties the risks, both legal and physical, seem diminished here. The site shows statistics and feedback about sellers so buyMy husband was sprayed with a mixture of Metsulfuron Methyl and Glyphosate, commonly called Roundup. There is evidence in the past that these herbicides have an increased risk of Non-Hodgkin’s Lymphoma. Metsulfuron should not be mixed as this increases its toxicity. Roundup causes genetic damage to the immune system. I have lost my lifelong partner whom I had known for 52 years. He was a well-respected member of our community, a just and fair solicitor to many people during his working life. So many other areas he was involved in, too numerous to mention here.

This is a story the church will not want you to read

The battle for the soul of Christianity between Augustine and Pelagius in the fourth century CE was a turning-point in history. ‘David Lovejoy brilliantly recreates the riven and turbulent age in which Christianity evolved. A serious and challenging historical novel, but also a page-turner.’ – Mungo MacCallum

ers can have confidence about what they are buying. It really is just like eBay in this regard, and although some transactions may ultimately fail, most active sellers have ratings between 95 and 100 per cent. A handful of dedicated Australian sellers who only post domestically seem to be well regarded in the Silk Road forums. I don’t know whether to be deeply impressed or shocked. Rifling through the categories in the marketplace, my eyes widened. Cocaine (from and reserves. Man-eating lions that have turned Nightcap into the new Tsavo. Ferocious tigers prowling throughout the Richmond Ranges. Cape Buffalo terrorising Yabbra. Hippo, anaconda, and grizzly bears have indeed been spotted from Broken Head to Brunswick Heads. Just last week I escaped from near certain death as a wedge-tailed eagle soared above me near Bangalow. This is beyond insane, the allowing of hunting in national parks/reserves throughout NSW, and in particular the ‘iconic’ region of the northern rivers, a region which relies heavily on tourism and the overall greater community involvement in its parks and reserves. The state of Queensland politics is enough to induce vomiting, but one truly has to applaud NSW for allowing the balance of power to be held by

Columbia), marijuana, speed, LSD, ecstasy, MDMA, Valium, Xanax, and even Viagra. The menu is certainly more diverse than Nimbin’s. This was all much easier than I expected it to be. I hadn’t left the house, and the software involved wasn’t as technical as I’d assumed. For an underground ‘dark web’, it’s very well organised. At this point I have 0.5 grams of cocaine sitting in the online shopping cart, and some bitcoins from mtGox (an online exchange on the regular web) ready to buy it. All I have none other than the Shooters and Fishers Party. National parks and reserves are under enough pressure as it is, and many are in poor condition. This ‘decision’ only makes that worse and places an immeasurable health risk on those who use national parks in the manner they were only ever intended for – preservation and appreciation. Countless cases exist in New Zealand and America where hunting has resulted in innocent human injury or worse. While feral animals do certainly exist, this is no solution. Collaborative, cooperative, and systematic management needs to be developed involving all landholders, local councils, and National Parks and Wildlife to address this issue. I of course, along with many, are waiting with bated breath

to do is finalise the order and tell the sender the name and address I’d like it posted to. I lost my nerve! Again. This is what having a family and approaching middle age will do to you. What happened to the subversive young man I was at university, railing against ‘the system’? The risk, however small, simply isn’t worth it for me. I’d still like to travel internationally and I’m sure future customs checkpoints wouldn’t take too kindly to a cocaine importation charge on my criminal record. I emptied my shopping cart and put in two generic Viagra pills instead. I don’t need any help down there, but I’m much less frightened of a love letter from the boner police than pissing off any Columbian drug cartels and associated drug units. In many ways, Silk Road

definitely seems easier than having to drive to Nimbin and shuffle nervously with shady dealers and unknown products. It appears to be safer for both the buyer and the seller and it’s easy to see why it’s so popular. I can see many middle-class couples who are long out of ‘the scene’ being able to order pills, or a bit of marijuana or even prescription meds at their own leisure. At the time of writing this article there are over 50 Australian drug traders listed on the site, all trading happily even after the intensity media attention and police scrutiny. If I didn’t know better, I would say they are getting away with it. ■ For the unabridged version of this story, visit www.

Thwarting Agenda 21

A week or so ago, scepticism about the climate change agenda led to the global community of nations at the Rio summit roundly rejecting the proposal of UN governance of the climate. The climate agenda has become progressively ‘uncool’ since the Copenhagen summit last year, just as the weather has become noticeably cooler and wetter. Alternative news sources have long speculated on the push toward one world government (OWG) through the so-called Agenda 21, which uses the alleged threat of an-

We should note that the carbon tax is set to financially benefit coal-seam gas fracking over coal production, a far more environmentally unsound practice. (ABC’s Alan Kohler has reported on this incoming new wave of investment.) The rejection of the AGW prophecy is not a rejection of true environmental concern. If we do not geo-engineer the sky or ruin the ground water table with fracking, Mother Earth will certainly be able to benefit her trees and plants to grow in abundance with plenty of needed CO2 and water.

thropogenic global warming (AGW) to the future climate as its initial justification. Under an OWG, a dream of elites seeking unfettered power, national governments would have to cede their sovereignty. We can imagine how this might work (not) by measuring the failures of the collapsing Eurozone. Agenda 21 would use various means to reduce population, return vast areas to wilderness, and reduce or abolish personal freedoms. Those at Rio affirmed ending poverty as the top global priority, and $513 billion was pledged toward this end. Population control also comes as a by-product of eradicating poverty. This can be seen as a historical moment – a huge win for global democracy and freedom. With much more said to be on the way. The Australian Greens Party, responsible for our AGW carbon tax regime, has declared UN global governance as part of its political agenda. One would have to wonder where it stands on aspects of Agenda 21. (The same could be asked of certain Echo writers.)

One mother’s surprise

A search for belonging

Review by Grace Halfpenny

Review by Grace Halfpenny

In her debut memoir, The Boy Who Loved Apples – a mother’s battle with her son’s anorexia, Amanda Webster has written a brave and honest insight through trauma, providing not just an understanding of the disease, but also what Amanda terms a ‘futuroscope’ and ‘retrospectoscope’. Amanda was a doctor and a loving mother, and yet anorexia happened in her home, and not to her daughter but to her eleven-year-old son, Riche. It wasn’t until another mother and anorexia survivor voiced her opinion of Amanda’s slim son and his behaviours that Amanda gave herself permission to address the situation. As she journeys to understand and vanquish the demons of anorexia, Amanda also has to negotiate her own mission as a parent and person, questioning her actions and values. What do you do? Which path is right – the medical or alternative approach? What can you do when medical establishments understand less than you do? Who or what is to blame? How do you function with an all-consuming disease that affects not just the victim but all those around them? How does a family survive? Can a marriage outlast the obsessive compulsive pressures of the disease? Along the way she is

‘Happy pills. At best you’re a dancing queen with a direct line to God; at worst you can fry your brain.’ Vikki Wakefield’s first novel, All I Ever Wanted, is a coming-of-age tale that had me entwined from page one. It has won acclaim as the winner of the Adelaide Festival Award for Literature (YA fiction), 2012, and been shortlisted for the Gold Inky Award, 2011, as well as the CBCA Older Readers Notable Book, 2012. Mim is approaching her seventeenth birthday and lives by a set of simplistic rules, rules she created to separate her from the suburban poverty she lives in, her couch-dependent mother and two jailed brothers. Mim is the outsider, the youngest in a drug-dealing family with a reputation. By following her own rules, Mim has decided that she won’t be like her mother. To survive, Mim needs to escape. During her first ‘package’ delivery, Mim’s world is turned upside down. The package is stolen and her heart simultaneously broken in a single moment – it’s the beginning of the end of the rules. Should she get even or just recover the package back before being discovered? Mim’s personal journey towards her seventeenth birthday is narrated with an authen-

confronted by the disease and the enquiries she herself must answer as her values and understanding adapt to this new world she is both warden and captive of. Carefully crafted scenes are flavoured with comic descriptions, balancing the grim reality of life within the strict boundaries defined by the demon and its battlefields. This is a devastating subject with a

story that is tribute to a mother’s courage to face the odds with determination and hope to win the battle. The chances are that anorexia has happened to someone you know or will know, or that it has touched lives you will encounter in some way. I have never before been so absorbed by a book, or so convinced that everyone should read it at some time in their lives.

tic teen voice that’s detailed with widening observation. Her perceptions of the world around her evolve as do her relationships and understanding of the people that fill her life – the very same people she is trying to separate herself from. Mim is a typical teen; she’s judgmental of herself and others, she is identifiably human. Sometimes her choices to fix her mistakes are worse than the mistakes themselves. Her decisions fuel the story in her search for belonging, self-realisation, relationships

In conversation

Book explores pivotal moment in Christian history Michael McDonald

While David Lovejoy’s latest book, Heresy, is fiction, it is based in a pivotal moment in Christian history when the influence of Augustine of Hippo usurped a more compassionate approach to morality by his contemporary, the British scholar Pelagius. It is Saint Augustine’s doctrine of Original Sin – not to mention the notion of a ‘just war’ – which is entrenched in the Church rather than Pelagius’s belief in free will and the power to choose either good or evil. Sadly for a more ‘free-spirited’ Christianity, the Catholic Church denounced Pelagius’s ideas and declared him a heretic at Augustine’s urging. Lovejoy tells the story of this fourth century moral struggle through the eyes of Arwel, Pelagius’s servant. He

few crimes explode into action on the way. The novel follows the young Arwel’s escape from servitude in Britain, his meeting with Pelagius, their travels to Rome and the subsequent confrontation with Augustine in Palestine. Though little is known of Pelagius’s life, David Lovejoy manages to flesh out a credible narrative from the few facts available. There’s tyranny, sex and violence – as well as metaphysical musings – as you would expect from a full life in troubled times when the Roman Empire was doomed to fall. Lovejoy also explores the dark side of fanatical belief when one of the great minds of the age, the female mathematician and philosopher Hypatia of Alexandria, runs foul of the Christian acts in a sense like Sherlock Holmes’s mob. Dr Watson, unravelling spiritual mysFor the author, ‘The defeat of Pelateries rather than crimes – though a gian ideals marks the beginning of the

This is a thought-provoking read with memorable Aussie characters and clear descriptive details from the outer burbs; one that I not only enjoyed but see as a catalyst for discussions around sex, drugs, domestic violence, poverty, peer pressure, choices, identity, loneliness, self-loathing, judgment, relationships, boundaries and the opportunity for growth. This novel is not just for teens but for their parents as well.

dark ages in Europe.’ In many ways it is a dark age which has continued to this day, with Church ‘fathers’ battling with a sense of sin rather than exploring the uplifting messages of their original leader. What Lovejoy makes clear, as a timely reminder to the present age, is that, other than Jesus’s alleged teachings, there is no immutable truth produced by the Church itself. Its doctrine has been formed out of the arguments of men, and some of them without the welfare of the faithful in mind. ■ Dr Victor Marsh, author of Mr Isher-

Michael Kirby retired from the High Court of Australia in Feb 2009 as Australia’s longest serving judge. In his spare time (!) he was chancellor of Macquarie University in Sydney (1984–93) and served on international bodies such as the World Health Organization’s Global Commission on AIDS, the UNAIDS Reference Group on HIV and Human Rights, and the UNDP Global Commission on HIV and the Law. He has been appointed honorary visiting professor by twelve universities and awarded 20 honorary doctorates. More importantly, he’s an inspiring human being who has influenced Australian life and culture. You’ll be able to see him at the writers’ fest in one of those wonderful ‘In Conversation’ sessions.

This is the story of a man the church has feared and persecuted for more than a thousand years ‘David Lovejoy brilliantly recreates the riven and turbulent age in which Christianity evolved. A serious and challenging historical novel, but also a page-turner.’ – Mungo MacCallum

No historical facts were harmed in the making of this novel.

Legend has it that a Persian king, angry with his former wife for betraying him, took savage revenge on women. He would marry a new virgin each night, only to have her executed the following day. This continued until Scheherazade, the daughter of a nobleman, offered herself to the king. That night, she started telling him a story, but left it unfinished as dawn began to break. The king, curious and mesmerised, spared her life that day to hear the ending of the story. This month, Scheherazade will be celebrated with works by Nikolai Rimsky-Korsakov, a Russian composer who portrayed a selection of her captivating stories through the sounds of orchestral music. Performed by Northern Rivers Symphony Orchestra and conducted by Barry Singh, this symphonic suite features their very own Concertmaster, Alison Fletcher, as the violin soloist and the voice of Scheherazade. To hear Alison Fletcher play the voice of Scheherazade, along with music by two other great Russian composers, Borodin and Tchaikovsky, join the NRSO for ‘A Russian Fantasy’ on Sunday 29 July, 2.30pm at the Tweed Civic and Cultural Centre.

Get Your Skates On! A L L






Roller Derby embraces women of all sizes. According to Bay Rollers’ Emma Hand, or, as she’s known on the track, Crystal Beth, ‘everything about roller derby functions with a DIY philosophy. All the leagues are run by the players and enthusiastic members who, although they may not skate, share the passion for roller derby with the skaters. ‘The Bay Rollers are made up of an eclectic bunch of women (as well as our very own ref, Certified Male). On board we have school teachers, nurses, local business owners, a youth worker, actress, fitness instructor, mums, and a mother/ daughter duo.’ So how does a nice girl suddenly morph into a skate demon? ‘I went and watched one of the Bay Rollers’ games. I was never going to do it. I thought it was ridiculous, and I watched one game and just had to do it! I went online and bought a whole heap of gear…’ We’re talking mouth guards, knee guards, elbow guards… helmets! ‘I went to the beach last summer,’ Emma laughs, ‘with a line of bruises down my body.’ Although Emma asserts that training ‘conditions’ players to experience less injury, the sport requires high levels of fitness. ‘It’s really physical; you don’t realise how hard you are working out at the time though, because it’s so much fun.’ So how does Roller Derby work? ‘The aim is that each team has a player called the jammer,’ says Emma, ‘and their job is to break through the pack and lap, and each time they pass a member of the opposite team they score a point; and the blockers who are in the pack – their job is to stop the opposite jammer and assist their own jammer in getting through.’ ‘There are five players on the track maximum – unless players are in the sin bin.’ Okay, so how do you get in the sin bin? They don’t have a sin bin in netball. ‘You get sin binned for blocking against the direction of play. You can hit above the knees to the shoulder, and you are aiming for the hips and the chest. You can hit with your body or your booty. There are no elbows, no punching people in the face, no headbutting.’

Oh my God. I can imagine skating at top speed with five women’s booties coming for me. That’s terrifying! Emma believes that Roller Derby embraces women of all shapes and sizes – it’s a celebration in fact of strength and endurance, and not for the light hearted. The Rollers are actually looking at setting up a youth league so young women can experience what Emma neatly phrases ‘a very healthy rebellion!’. But this won’t happen until the girls have a home ground. To date they practise at the skate rink in Ballina and up at Tweed. Once the Byron sports fields open, they will be training and playing at the Byron sports centre. With audiences packing games up and down the coast, when the Bay Rollers finally come home, this is sure to create even more of a phenomenon. As part of the North Coast Derby Coalition, the Bay Rollers’ next game is at Tweed’s Epic Skate on 21 July; ticket information is available on their website. Locals have a chance to meet the girls and fall in love with derby by attending their upcoming movie night hosted by

new Bay Rollers’ sponsor, the Hotel Great Northern. This is a chance for those who are keen on derby to sign up or get information about the next intake. Derby Baby is the story of love, addiction and rink rash by Emmy-award-winning filmmakers Robin Bond and Dave Wruck, who take you with them on their international quest to learn why women’s flat-track roller derby is the fastestgrowing sport in the world. Narrated by actress/musician Juliette Lewis (star of Whip It, Derby, Baby! explores the drama, the friendships, and the addictive nature of women’s flat-track roller derby, including never-before-seen bout footage of the international flattrack roller derby champions. Also screening will be Derby Wives, a short documentary on the derby wife phenomenon as shared by the Northside Rollers from Melbourne, Victoria. Derby Baby! Film Premiere followed by DJ Stevie Starr! Thursday 12 July The Northern Hotel, Johnson St Byron Bay. Doors open 7.30pm, film starts 8pm. Tickets $10 + BF/ $15 Door. For more info:

See Mandy live at

SO YOU DON’T THINK YOU CAN DANCE I’ve never really got the dancing thing. I’ve never felt comfortable dancing. Especially in public. Dancing has always felt less like a voluntary ‘fun’ activity and more like a cry for help. If you’ve seen me dance you would understand. I have witnessed people dancing for hours, lathered in sweat, with silly dance trance smiles on their faces. I wonder what substance they must have imbibed to reach such a state. As far as I’m concerned, dancing for fun is about the same league as jogging for pleasure. Only weirdos, druggies and people with eating disorders really get into it. Oh and hippies who need to self express every few hours or they spontaneously combust. When I’m dancing I time myself. One song, thats enough. I have ‘danced’. I don’t actually dislike dancing. Occasionally I’ve surrendered to the moment and pulled off a few amazing moves. But dancing makes me feel self conscious and silly. If I’m being purposefully silly that’s fine. I can dance like a maniac, providing that you are willing to laugh at me. But

Music with PePPer Peppers Coorabell are starting up a regular Sunday Live Music Day showcasing local musicians. They will have a different musician every Sunday and are keen to get the local community enjoying and supporting the amazing talent we have in this area. Their musician for 15 July is Jake Bistrow, and he is currently studying at the Brisbane Conservatory; he plays piano and keyboard with a mixture of modern and jazz music. He will be playing from 2pm to 6pm. It will be his birthday on that day and is hoping for a good turn-out to celebrate!

tex gets the cash There are not many people who could step into the shoes of Johnny Cash. For a start he’s got to look good in black. He’s got to have a history. He’s got to have a dark side. He’s got to have a distinctive voice. And he’s got to be so cool he scares the living crappers out of nerds like Andrew Denton. Only Tex Perkins could fill those shoes; he doesn’t even need socks. Perkins has been presenting The Man in Black around the country to acclaim, and now it’s finally our turn to experience two hours of Cash’s magnificent music interwoven with the story of his rise to stardom, his fight for survival and his eventual redemption. The show explores his relationships – with hardened prisoners to the beautiful June Carter and lots in between. Johnny Cash was dealt a very tough hand early in life, but through his music and dedication he became a legend throughout the world.

for me to hit the dance floor and expect to be taken seriously is quite another matter. I find dancing and blending in quite a challenge. Dancing makes me feel obvious. I start choosing the moves I might use as I approach the dance floor. I’m six foot tall and 90 kilos. There’s some moves that I just can’t pull off without looking like I’m having a seizure or I’ve got a bad case of thrush. Generally I go for the dance that everyone seems to do. The foot shuffle and the shake of the hips. And then the hands, what do I do with my hands? Wave ‘em around a bit. Put them in the air. Hang on, you’re on the dance floor with your hands in the air. I look like someone on drugs. Or waving to let traffic know there’s an accident up ahead. Now I can’t bring my hands down unless I transition into some sort of follow up move. How about the traffic cop, oh yeah that’s it, pulling the Stop Sign. Nice move. A bit enthusiastic though for someone who was just hoping to blend in. People will be looking at you and they’ll be thinking that you are thinking that you are an awesome mover. I don’t want people to think that I think I’m a good dancer. When I’m dancing I am aware that people are deciding one of two things. Either I’m a good dancer or a shit dancer. Even thinking that makes me feel even more wooden. Like a bloke doing the Nutbush sober. I don’t like free dance. Because nobody except that freak Tommee really dances freely anyway, people seem to all follow this set of moves prescribed by the thriving sweaty status quo. I remember the hip-pumping dance of the gay clubs. Everyone did it. Straight or gay. Then the swampee stomp backwards and forwards. I tried this for a Hoodoo Gurus gig and got so dizzy I passed out. Doof

nearly killed me. Dancing for three days, are you frigging kidding? To that? Techno always felt like music to grow brain tumours. I went to a few doofs, but I ended up hiding in the car hoping that someone would eventually want to go home so we could resume normal life. I love the idea of being an amazing dancer. In my mind I am incredible. Leaping, rolling, writhing – although this doesn’t go down very well in the mosh pit, and generally you end up finishing your dance with someone from security. I have heard the saying ‘dance like no-one is watching’. And that’s just stupid. If no-one was watching, then why would you even dance in the first place? Dancing is primal. It’s performance. By its very nature it’s attention-seeking. Dancing in nightclubs always feels like an audition for a root. I’ve seen people dancing like no-one is watching, and they always look like they know everyone is watching. I think I need some sort of dance therapy, but I’ve seen the Nia crew, and I don’t know whether it’s healthy being that un-self-conscious. Sometimes being self-conscious is a good thing. It makes you put your pants on. In the meantime, I’ll just sit this one out.

This project is getting underway thanks to Pozible – an online ‘crowdfunding’ platform, a fantastic way for independent artists to source grassroots funding, literally from the crowd. In return, the crowd receives generous ‘rewards’ – the way Laura sees it is a way to pre-sell copies of the album to fund its production.

THE LITTLE MAC Kid Mac delivered his first track off his new album back in April with the super-punchy She goes Off featuring US artist Mickey Avalon. The tune has already clocked over 100,000 views on YouTube and features cameos from Snoop Dogg, Steve Aoki and Sarah McLeod. It’s the kind of attention the Kid should have been getting all along with Rolling Stone declaring ‘Sydney MC impresses on long-awaited debut… The Sydneysider’s gritty, edgy, punk-esque hip-hop is not only fraught with pep, but it’s also accessible.’ Saturday at the Hotel Great Northern.

LOCAL MUSICIANS INVITED TO SPLENDOUR Three north coast musical acts have been chosen, via a competition, to play at Splendour in The Grass. The acts were selected from a list of hundreds via the Triple J Unearthed website. JJJ announced that Ballina hip-hop artist MC Splinta, Byron Bay rock funk four-piece band Lifeline, and Byron rock duo Wilde Childe will all be given the opportunity to play on the big Splendour stages in a few weeks’ time at Belongil Fields. The boys from Lifeline were thrilled at the news and are amazed that they were chosen from such a long list of talented locals, especially as they are all only 15 years old.




It was the decade when frizzy perms and shoulder pads were hip, long lunches were tax deductible, the compact disc appeared in record stores, Cabbage Patch Dolls were born, we lost John Lennon, played Pac-Man and the wall came down in Berlin. And amongst all this, the Australia music scene was at its most exciting and prolific and the music from this era shaped a generation. Born from the success of the Countdown spectacular, The Absolutely 80s Show features some of the best Aussie pop icons from the 80s. The Absolutely 80s Show – a musical extravaganza of epic 80s fun and flashbacks – stars Brian Mannix (Uncanny X-Men), Scott Carne (Kids In The Kitchen) and Dale Ryder (Boom Crash Opera) performing all their hits in one massive show (see show details for lineup). For those who are true lovers of 80s music and keen for a high-powered dose of nostalgia, this show is not to be missed! Sunday at the Beach Hotel.

CHAMPAGNE AT THE DRILL HALL This last year has seen Daniel Champagne performing hundreds of shows internationally in North America, the United Kingdom, Europe, New Zealand and here in Australia. Daniel is now on the road again, touring nationally sharing his show-stopping live performance, honed over more than four years on the road. Drill Hall in Mullumbimby on Saturday 21 July. Tix at for $18, or $23 at the door. Show at 7.30pm.

Three rotating DJs and many guests on the mic including Mista Savona, Raz Bin Sam, Dollamix, Comrade Dubs and others make Blaze Fire Sound more than just a DJ show – it’s a live, interactive, roots-skanking, booty-shaking reggae dancehall extravaganza! This is a launch party for the act label’s new website: blazefiremusic. com, and warm-up celebration for the crew’s massive Splendour In The Grass set on Saturday 28 on the Tipi Forrest stage! So if you really want to dance, don’t miss out on this one. Saturday at the Byron Brewery Buddha Bar. 6pm start, free entry!

NOT THE KINGSWOOD! Kingswood have just been released as the Unearthed act to play Friday at Splendour in the Grass! Combining forces to create a three-headed assault machine that would compel Godzilla to retreat to the depths of Tokyo Bay with his head hung in shame, Melbourne rock maestros Kingswood, Money For Rope and Damn Terran emerge from the primordial ooze to take their rock largesse to the good people. Yeah Go Die, Kingswood’s debut single of inimitable sludgy goodness, is currently riding high at national radio, andd with their recently unleashed EP Change Of Heart promising to continue the momentum, the band have an appetite whet for destruction. Friday at the Beach Hotel from 9pm.

VAN SHE VAN SHINE Van She’s current sunshine-in-a-glass single Jamaica is all over your airwaves and follows the album’s title track Idea of Happiness which re-launched Van She back into the musical spotlight. So uplifting it’s practically levitational, Van She’s new album is their most focused, joyous musical excursion to date. An album stirred by sun-baked travels and fleeting truths, and shaken with the sands of time, Idea Of Happiness was recorded, engineered and produced by the band themselves in Kings Cross, Sydney, and mixed by Tony Hoffer (Air, Beck, Phoenix, M83) in Los Angeles. Byron Brewery Buddha Bar on Wednesday.

BY THE RIVER WITH DEE Personifying soul, passion and charisma, Dee Lavell is one of the latest names on the Australian soul and blues scene, but she’s definitely not the new kid on the block. A seasoned performer with more than 25 years of experience on stage and in the studio in Australia and the US, Dee has just released her gorgeous new album Mama Told Me. Catch her at By the River Lounge Bar in Ballina on Sunday.

BUSY AS A BUSBY Rockhampton’s favourite sons, Busby Marou, have just returned from their first tour of the US and Canada with big smiles on their dials. The old saying ‘no rest for the wicked’ certainly applies here. After a rip-snorter performance at Bluesfest this year and a brand-new single recorded with Anthony Lycenko (Elvis Costello/Xavier Rudd) in Byron Bay between shows on their most recent tour, which is available now for fans to devour. They play Hotel Great Northern on Sunday.

he forages for, cooks up and devours the incredible edibles of our landscape. Do you think young people can change the world? This is a hard question to answer. There are two elements: can one change the world, and can youth do this. To change the world seems to me to be a massive task; there are constantly things to improve and the concept of changing the world seem epic and tiresome. Can people change elements of the world? Yes. And I believe when youth do take a stand and fight for what they think needs to be improved or what they believe to be important, it has a major impact. This is because the future is ours; we should build and work towards a world we want to live in. The youth of today seem to be criminalised. We drink too much, we party too much and we don’t care. However, if you look back in history the majority of all social movements originated with passionate youth! What should people expect of the day? Throughout the whole day  you’ll be wooed by some of the best music the shire has to offer.


Kindling, Kit Bray, Potato Potato and Lifeline will be delighting us with their musical genius.

Best get what you need to in order before Friday 13th heralds a five-month Uranus retrograde, followed by Mercury retrograde for three weeks. Meaning? Some tough adjustments…

 ARIES: If seesawing finances or abrupt flux at work brings the worldwide economic dislocation to your doorstep, find a peaceful place to plan the necessary recalibrations. This is your life Aries, it’s a wild ride but you’re writing the script. Explore new possibilities, new living arrangements, new moves.  TAURUS: The more you expect things a certain way or envisage a particular outcome, the less likely that is to happen this week. Which doesn’t mean you won’t have good moments – just be prepared to accept them presenting in a different package than you’d imagined.  GEMINI: Not an auspicious week for starting things; better for making appointments, completing pending matters and getting chores sorted before your ruler Mercury retrograding next week tosses a cosmic spanner in our worldly works. On the upside, interesting, unusual, outrageous out-of-towners are heading into your orbit…  CANCER: It’s important this week not to be unduly influenced by either your own misgivings or other peoples’ misguided advice. Take a constructive approach, trust your own judgment, have confidence in your abilities and keep on deepening your understanding of the present planetary dynamics.

Mungo’s Crossword

 LEO: Changing world circumstances requiring a radical resetting of priorities make this week more about duty than enjoyment. If you want creative or artistic inspiration try watching Treme, a grace-in-the-face-ofdisaster TV series set in post-Katrina New Orleans and count your blessings.  VIRGO: Forget gloom and doomsday thinking, however justified this week. Focus on transforming angst into positive action by staying alert for a news item, sound byte, opinion, even a song which convinces your inner control freak to instigate a series of changes initiated by you – not outside influences.  LIBRA: It’s cold outside but Mars, lord of the planetary dance, fires up a hot choreography between your needs and other peoples’ which requires a fine balance between surrender and control. You’re being asked to extend your range and come to grips with radical new dance steps.  SCORPIO: As universal tremors of unrest unite some and polarize others, this life-changing week would be put to best use discussing future plans with loved ones. And keep remembering everyone adapts at their own pace, in their own time, on their own learning curve. Just like you.

Choreographer and film director Busby Berkeley became hugely successful in the 1930s and 40s for his innovative work, revolutionising movie musicals when the genre took off after the advent of sound. He was renowned for his huge sets and kaleidoscopic imagery, featuring overhead shots from cameras placed so high they required holes to be drilled in studio roofs. Berkeley’s extravagant productions became legendary for their surreal designs, with chorus lines of dancing girls forming abstract designs and patterns. Catch Berkley’s most famous musical, 42nd Street, at the Dendy in Byron on Monday at 10am and 6pm. Tickets $9, Club Dendy members $6.50–$7.50.

Last week’s solution

Mungo’s Crossword first published in The Week.

22 July 10, 2012 The Byron Shire Echo

 S AGITTARIUS: If this week engenders a feeling of life’s jumbo jet being trapped in a holding pattern on life’s existential tarmac, you’ll figure out a way to get it going, because you have to. Meanwhile, there’s plenty of warm home comforts and domestic pleasures with encouraging friends…  CAPRICORN: As our whole social order realigns, trying to hold on to what’s no longer an option only causes further stress. Don’t fight the process. Let the present challenging changes propel you, however reluctantly, to create something new: which is the real work you came here to do.  AQUARIUS: Forget passionate debates on the state of nations – this week needs you laying off getting the universe in order and attending to whatever needs downsizing in your personal world, whether that’s outdated attitudes, unnecessary debt, bad habits or unsupportive connections. So many choices, so little time…  PISCES: If the chill factor in a certain situation needs addressing, do it this week before retro Mercury deepens misunderstandings. Money discussions could get heated if others don’t agree with you. If they don’t, are you being fair? Are they? Or is there a backlog of unresolved issues?

Motherhood The Musical is an hilarious musical journey about the lives of four mums. There’s Barb, an over-worked, underpaid, stressed-out mother of five; Brooke, the lawyer, who works too much and barely sees her kids, Trisha, a single mum struggling to balance work, her family and her divorce and finally Amy, the naive young woman about to have her first child. As the three friends throw Amy a baby shower, the truth about motherhood (the good, the bad and the ugly) all comes out into the open: the nappies, the dirty laundry, the lazy husbands, juggling the demands of children and a career and everything in between. Having received rave reviews during its 45-week 2011 Australian tour, this musical, written by award-winning singer/songwriter Sue Fabisch, features 20 sensational songs including her Top 10 Billboard comedy hit The Kids Are Finally Asleep. You’ll love this joyous musical journey as it takes a look at the blessings and the perils of being a mum. This is all about laughing and crying, craziness and calm, smiles and tears, all wrapped up into 90 minutes of great musical entertainment. 8pm Sunday, Byron Theatre, Community Centre.

Survivor is a major art project by Indonesian-Australian artist Dadang Christanto. Initially developed in 2008 as a live protest against an environmental disaster that occurred in East Java, which saw hot volcanic mud wipe out 11 villages and destroy many lives, Survivor has since migrated beyond cultural borders, evolving into a universal, multi-faceted reflection upon human survival and what it means to endure tragic historical events, loss and death.

cinema review The Amazing Spider-Man

As far as I’m concerned, SpiderMan has always been the most naff of the super-heroes. I mean, a bloke whose primary weapon in the fight against crime is a silken web has got to be a bit suss, hasn’t he? And whatever happened to Toby Maguire, anyway? It seems like just yesterday that he was leaping around in the red-andblue lycra. Why the story has been revamped so soon after its last outing is a mystery (oh yeah – money), but the result is a resounding success. As the new Peter Parker, Andrew Garfield’s take on the part is not unlike Maguire’s, except that present this time is the ego and cockiness of the socialnetwork generation. There is also more back-story, as we learn about Peter’s missing parents and spend a lot of time with the doting uncle and auntie that brought him up (Martin Sheen and Sally Field – who, as a former flying nun, would have empathised strongly with her nephew). It’s revealed, too, that Peter got his extraordinary powers after he was bitten by a spider in the lab of the one-armed scientist Rhys Ifans, a fellow who you know for sure is going to turn out weird. Peter gets bullied at school and, in keeping with the lauded narcissism of our celeb-obsessed culture, he takes showy pleasure in the revenge he exacts on the jock responsible, but tragedy strikes and its moral lesson makes him re-direct his energies to combating evil. Swinging between skyscrapers on webs of steel (actually, they look more like elastic ropes, but Bungie-Man doesn’t quite have the same cache), Spider-Man is seen as a vigilante by the hard-nosed detective who happens to be the father of beautiful blonde Gwen (Emma Stone – who doesn’t love her?), Peter’s sweetheart from school. For mine, the romance is the film’s strongest element, but the appearance of the Godzilla-type monster and the havoc it wreaks is fun too. The ultimate fight is over-extended, but this is a cut above similar blockbusters and well worth the effort. ~ John Campbell


movie is how, despite its naughty pose, it plays it so safe. It can’t be that difficult to write a script in the Jonson Street vernacular, with characters smoking bongs and saying fuck every other word – ‘she’s such a cunt’, Mila Kunis says of Jessica Barth, to approving giggles – so all that writer/ director Seth MacFarlane has done is pander a little too lazily and a lot too obviously to his immature audience. Aggressively vulgar and wilfully low-brow, anybody who is out of their teens and able to find this sort of calculating crudeness remotely amusing should take a crash course in growing up. If you wish to draw an extremely long, forgiving bow, you might suggest that the story can be regarded as the end-game example of the pathetic man-boy syndrome that currently dominates mainstream Hollywood comedy, a genre in which young women are there only to provide tits’n’arse and be the guys’ emotional accoutrements. John Bennet (Mark Wahlberg) is 35 and he has lived since he was a kid with Ted (MacFarlane does the voice-over à la Seth Rogan), a talking teddy bear and has-been celebrity. John’s girlfriend Lori (Kunis), fed up with her unreliable partner’s slothful hedonism, demands that he commit to either her or Ted. The bear moves out and is kidnapped by stalkers, Donny (Giovanni Ribisi is terrifically creepy) and his son Robert. After the extended preamble of gross-out humour – including a scene in which Ted is sitting with a bunch of hookers, one of whom has dumped a visible number-two on the floor – this is the crisis that will allow for the predictable resolution. Revealing the gold-plated phoniness of the bourgeois iconoclast who makes his fortune by catering to the mob’s sheepish hunger to be ‘bad’, MacFarlane leads John and Lori to a weepy reconciliation and it all ends in a Women’s Weekly white wedding. The CGI that brings the bear to life is convincing but, in Ted’s words, ‘hey dude, this is a crock’. ~

hashish to last the distance. From Canada, Sarah (Deborah Kara Unger) has vowed to give up chain-smoking, while the mad Irishman, Jack (James Nesbitt), is a writer in need of a muse. Camaraderie is forged between crusty Tom and his three unlikely partners as, over shared meals and nights in various hostelries, they all confront their deeper motivations. Gorgeous merely as travelogue (the views are specky, the churches inspiring), the inner journeys of Tom, Joost, Sarah and Jack, all of them coping with love and loss in some form, delve deeply into our shared humanity. If you are of a disposition that is more likely to be drawn to the mystery of faith than to the blind certainty of atheism, you are bound to be overwhelmed by this movie. And if you are of a certain age, you will be drenched in sweet memory – I know I was. Check it out. Cherish its message of hope and wonderment. ~ John Campbell


What is most annoying about this extravagantly puerile FULLY AIR-CONDITIONED

he takes a call from France. His 39-year-old son, Daniel (Emilio Estevez), has been killed in the Pyrenees, having just set out on the pilgrimage of the Camino de Santiago de Compostela. Tom flies to France to retrieve his son’s body – the identification in the morgue is heartbreaking – but while he is there he determines to have Daniel cremated and the ashes cast along the 800-kilometre trek. That he is an eye doctor is the essential metaphor at the heart of the story, for Tom’s enlightenment will enable him to see the world, and his place in it, in a new light. Reduced to the basics, this is a road trip, albeit on foot and with staffs, with a strong spiritual component. But Emilio Estevez (Sheen’s real-life son) has created a thing of simple but profound beauty that is greater than its parts. First to buddy-up with Tom is Joost (Yorick van Waginingen) from Amsterdam. He’s walking to lose weight and has brought with him enough

Television Guide 1. Who could go past a South Korean movie whose title, Haeundae (SBS2, Saturday, 9.35pm), looks like that country’s car brand? It is in fact the name of a popular beach resort which will be swallowed up by a mega tsunami. While this is touted as South Korea’s first disaster movie, of course Australian director Peter Weir did it all first back in 1977 with The Last Wave. 2. Mega thespian Kenneth Branagh stars in the British version of Wallander (ABC1, Sunday, 8.30pm), also a Swedish series based on the novels by Henning Mankell. The Scandanavians are keen on brooding, melancholic detectives, who can seem a bit silly to the phlegmatic Aussie. Wallander is a bit slow on picking up the obvious plot signals, too. His alleged home town Ystad is now a tourist magnet which hosts a crime fiction festival. Stick it on your iPhone or visit We hear Scandi noir The Bridge is worth a look, too –

Cooking for others is never more pleasurable for me than in winter. It is indeed during winter that I seem almost permanently to be thinking of food – well, even more than I do anyway! Plotting dinners, planning menus, leafing through food magazines as if I haven’t seen just about every recipe countless times already. My favourite dishes to cook have always been sweet things (to the periodic detriment of my smaller jeans) – and there are three lovely cakes I seem, this season, to be somewhat stuck on, so I thought they should be shared. The first is season-appropriate: a tangelo syrup cake our abundant tangelo tree keeps impelling me to bake. The second is one of those cakes or desserts which are madly easy to make yet which appear to be clever and fancy. The third is my totally indulgent way of combining two loves, cheesecake and Rocky Road, into one springform tin, to the joy of everyone.

and is best eaten slightly warmed. CHERRY HAZELNUT MERINGUE CAKE In a moderately hot oven roast 100g hazelnuts, chop roughly and set aside. Lower heat to 150°C. Drain one tin of pitted black cherries and place on paper towels, pressing gently to remove excess liquid. Divide in half. Beat together 2 eggs, 1/2 cup caster sugar, 1/2 cup brown sugar and 1 tspn vanilla essence until tripled in volume – an electric beater is best. Separately, combine 1 cup plain flour, 1 tspn baking powder, 1/2 tspn ground cinnamon and the hazelnuts. Using a large metal spoon, gently fold this through the eggs together with half the cherries, then tip into greased springform pan. Dot remaining cherries over the top of the batter without pushing them in, then bake about an hour or until the top is pale gold and crisp. Leave to cool completely in tin before turning out, dusting with icing sugar and serving with whipped cream.

Devils burn Bombers to stake title claim

Bankers two for two in Shand

John Campbell

Brian Mollet

Something’s crook in Muswellbrook when, in one totally wrong weekend, England’s cricket team wipes the floor with our boys, a Brit makes it to the men’s final at Wimbledon and another takes the lead in the Tour de France. With their 48–6 hammering of the Evans Head Bombers last Sunday, the Byron Bay Red Devils were at least able to restore some order to the Universe and consolidate their standing among the frontrunners of the NRRRL comp. The threat of rain was not enough to deter an estimated crowd of 5,171 from enjoying a second-half rout after the Devils had taken an unconvincing 10–6 lead to the sheds. It was a strange sort of game, lacking in intensity, with a dangerous air of the result being a foregone conclusion. Within the first few sets it was apparent that the Bombers were an honest side that would put it to the Bay without seriously threatening to steal the victory. Their play was tidy, vigorous and structured, but it lacked penetration against well-drilled Devils’ tackling. Byron scored on their first incursion into the opposition’s half when full-back Ryan ‘the Crab’ O’Connell’s chip hit the upright and hooker Cale Rowston scavenged the eva-

The pale-faced winter sun bathed Mullumbimby’s Lomath oval in light on Sunday where once again the lines were blurred between sport-loving and unhealthy obsession as luminaries of the local game the Left Bankers took on the lovable but far more dimly lit Geckos in game two of the Nick Shand Memorial cricket series. Pete Wynne-Moylan won the toss for the Geckos and after several conflicting levels of scrutiny and an examination of the damp pitch the Bankers were asked to bat. With the odd ball skidding, James charging in like a Pamplona bull and Greg-O swinging it around like George Michael in a public toilet, going was tough early on. Sean (32) and Clay (38no) settled in as the pitch dried up and soon were spanking it around like Peter Roebuck’s boyfriend’s bottie. Multitalented Trent is built a bit like a swiss army knife but has as many tools in his kit. His three scalps and good spells from Peter Wynne -Moylan and Adeha kept the asking score to a gettable 147.

sive pill to dive over. Only minutes later, five-eighth Clarence ‘Carter’ Kelly sent captain and prop, ‘Toothless’ Simon Kelly, careering through a gap. ‘Toothless’ off-loaded to centre Chris ‘BB’ King, who is having a whale of a season. He had support on either side, but needed neither of them in a bamboozling run to the line. The sky was the limit for the Devils, but they dropped back a gear and were content to let the Bombers believe that they were in the hunt. When Byron allowed a bomb to bounce not once, but twice, the visitors

With four rounds to be completed before the play-offs, the Bay are well placed in the top five, but they face a testing trip to Grafton next week to confront the reigning premiers. The second-half panache shown by the Devils against a side that was done-for was pretty to watch, but the Ghosts will demand an Dean Trevaskis eighty-minute effort, from all of the men in red.

Byron Magpies take a lesson north to Carrara Mick Hosking

Due to the Coopers Byron Magpies nest at Bangalow being closed the Magpies travelled to Carrara to battle the Saints in a 4.15pm game. The late start may have helped with the nocturnal social habits of the Magpies as they hit the game awake and had three goals on the board before Carrara scored. With good attacking football the Magpies had a handy 11-point lead at the first break. Tom

Brian and Greg-O faced the early heat from Clay, Cameron and Eli with skill, alacrity and a bloodyminded refusal to walk off the park. Brian scored 19 before slashing Sean to Bruce at gully but Trent (19) continued with the very combative Greg-O and the score began creeping up like the shoreline at Belongil. Scruff broke the partnership when Greg-O could only fend a rib-tickler to a diving Sean at point. Sprouting a row of stitches in his scalp from a head clash at Moonshiners’ training and looking (and some would say umpiring) as though he had been horriblly lobotomised before the match, Saint Seymour dug in with James to give the Geckos real hope of winning. Those hopes went down like the SS Wollongbar when James was run out for 11 and the Left Bankers went home happy with two wins from two to start the season. Next week the yurt-dwelling barbarians of Main Arm take on the socially liberated Suffolk Swingers in a game that promises a clash of cultures as well as sporting prowess.

Bangers survive Moonshine ambush Bangalow never threatened the Mullum line during the first half but capitalised on limited advances with three converted penalties. Bangalow gained some composure in the second half. An early try saw them extend the lead to nine points. The game opened up with both sides creating opportunities. Mullum was looking weary after the first-half effort and under less pressure Bangalow were hanging onto the ball and finding space. Bangalow tight head prop Neil Moran was unstoppable gaining big metres with every run. The Mullum defence finally cracked in the final fifteen minutes with Bangalow running in four tries the last of which was a sixty metre dazzler. The final score of 38–5 for a deserved Bangalow victory did not do justice to what was a great contest. Buckley, Leighton and Moran were best for Bangalow. Mullum’s front row gave their all playing the full game unchanged; votes went to Appel, Matchett-Oates and Siamoa. In the backs Stephens, Vogt and Hutton were always dangerous with Greenlaugh and Pruul revelling in the rough stuff. Plenty more deserved mention in a side that is growing in stature and thriving on the fearless exuberance of youth. Get along to support the Moonshiners this Saturday at 2pm against Byron in Byron for the battle for the Ashes.

Revised Fees and Charges 2012–13 Myocum Landfill Waste Services On 28 June 2012, Council resolved (12-485) that the following charges be advertised as proposed changes to 2012/2013 Fees and Charges adopted by Council: • Wet Putrescible Waste (General mixed garbage) – delete the distinction between generated inside and outside the Shire and move to universally apply the currently advertised charge of $240/tonne. • Dry Non-Putrescible Garbage (ie Construction/demolition waste) – increase the charge to $240/tonne commensurate with the wet putrescible waste charge and delete the distinction between generated inside and outside the Shire and move to universally apply the charge. • Concrete and Building Rubble – increase the charge to $70/tonne to reflect the cost of NSW Waste Levy and the cost of processing this waste into a recyclable form. • Dirty concrete, tiles, brick blocks etc (Mixed with soil and reinforcing steel) – increase the charge to $240/tonne to be the same as dry non-putrescible garbage because there is no capacity, in terms of space and machinery, at Myocum Landfill to process and potentially recycle this material. • Other Special Wastes (Food processing waste/highly putrescible & offensive waste) – delete the distinction between generated inside and outside the Shire and move to universally apply the currently advertised charge of $300/tonne. • Contaminated Soil – increase the charge to $240/tonne commensurate with the wet putrescible waste charge and delete the distinction between generated inside and outside the Shire and move to universally apply the charge.

to work with The Professionals and in 2003 opened her own practice, Red Rose Realty. As a one-woman show, she sells mostly residential properties but owns the management rights of Byron Central Apartments, a holiday complex in the CBD. Rose is perhaps one of the biggest philanthropists in local realty, with one-fifth of all net proceeds of sales going to local and global humanitarian projects. She has been active in protests against coal-seam gas mining and climate change, has campaigned for a chemical-free shire, and has purchased six wells in Ethiopia providing fresh water for more than 6,000 people. She is now working, with her daughter, toward establishing an integrated hospital in Byron Bay. Questions by Hans Lovejoy: You are seeking election at the upcoming elections. What made you decide to run on the Greens ticket? RW: I believe I can make a difference. I have always been an environmental activist, but having seen the direction of events on our planet I felt a strong need to join with others to collectively make changes at a policy level.

HL: I understand that it is now possible under new state laws to vote on a matter while having a pecuniary interest as well. Would voting on property rezoning that you have an interest in be something you would be comfortable with? RW: I am sure a large percentage of issues that come before me, should I be elected as a councillor, will fall into this category but hopefully my many years of experience in this field will stand me in good stead. I would most likely have to decline to vote should it be directly connected to my real estate interests. HL: You have been in support of affordable housing in the past. What is your vision? RW: One of my goals, having been a strong mediator, is to unite councillors and staff to form a good working team to work out the issues that come before us, amicably and with good will. I am really thrilled to see how the developers of Tallowood Ridge have moved to provide an affordable housing situation. While $300,000 may be out of the reach of many of our community, there has been a strong interest shown by investors in these homes, which in turn will mean more homes for rent at reasonable rents. High rents are a by-product of high prices. Affordable rent and a good supply will address

many issues in our shire. Statebuilt accommodation in this economy probably is not going to be feasible, an ideal we can but aspire to. HL: It could be said that this area is unlike everywhere else in that it is cautious of development rather than embracing it. How does a real estate operator in the shire balance community wishes against the pressures to operate a profit-making venture? RW: Getting the balance right is important. I know that we can have a vibrant community and a thriving economy. When it comes to development, appropriate development is crucial to providing housing and infrastructure for a growing community. Every roof built is another tradesperson working, spending his wages to care for his family, supporting more families, keeping it local. I have always believed everything in moderation and I am thrilled that past councils have seen the wisdom of keeping a close eye on ad hoc development, highrise, etc. I hope to build on this work while still keeping a mindful eye on a sustainable future in the economy as well as our environment. HL: What initially drew you to this area and does it still have those same qualities? What are the major changes in your time here?

RW: The first inkling I had that this shire was different 20 years ago was when I was able to buy soya milk at the service station. My children, who are now married with children of their own, were just teenagers then and loved to come to Byron from Brisbane. They would have fallen into the category of day trippers, taking everything and leaving nothing. Eventually they moved here and I followed. This shire is still very attractive to the young at heart – the mating grounds, I call it – and I love nothing more than to do a lap of town on a balmy Friday evening with my

grandchildren. I know the mood can grow ugly later in the night but people are always so friendly, they look you in the eye and smile at you, a stranger to them. This has never changed. Being able to purchase soya milk led me to a shire that now has one of the highest uptakes of sustainable organic agriculture in any region in Australia. Our shire sells more organic milk per capita than any other shire. We know how to tread lightly. My cup runneth over. I wouldn’t want to live anywhere else in the world. ■ Next week The Echo will profile another Byron Shire realtor.

Carbon tax and energy prices drive green home design and quality assessment Archicentre, the building design, inspection and advice service of The Australian Institute of Architects, said last week the introduction of the carbon tax and rising power prices will significantly increase the demand for sustainable housing design as part of Australia’s housing affordability strategy. Archicentre general manager David Hallett said the pressure of housing affordability today is not just in the initial building costs as housing affordability has now spread into the services such as power, water and gas to run a home.      ‘Cutting escalating costs of energy and water will become a powerful economic force in driving green sustainable homes into the mainstream and the market will increasingly look

for increased performance and savings from design,’ Mr Hallett said. ‘Home owners with well designed insulated homes and renovations, including solar panels and rain water tanks, stand to see hundreds of dollars a year cut from their energy and water bills as prices escalate dramatically.’ Archicentre has already been engaged by a number of NSW councils to provide sustainability design advice to residents at the early stage of their renovation or new home design to maximise energy and water cost savings. Mr Hallett said one of the biggest trends in new homes and renovations is likely to be around the introduction of ‘quality based building inspections’ which are aimed at ensuring homes with

<echowebsection=Real Estate>

a six or more green star design ‘One of the major issues is not are actually built to the standard. to do with the design but how ‘At present no one independently people operate their homes. verifies the presence of energy efficient features in new homes or renovations, with the six star performance quickly evaporating if there are gaps around doors or windows, or if wall or ceiling insulation is absent.

‘Sitting around in shorts and a singlet during winter with the heater running full blast and poorly sealed doors and windows can soon remove the sustainable impact of any star rating.’

Woolworths recently sought the Federal Court’s permission to deny an Extraordinary General Meeting GetUp members with Woolies shares requisitioned to discuss pokies reform. It lost. Woolworths withdrew its application when it became clear it would be unsuccessful. According to GetUp, ‘Woolworths will now be the only top company in Australian history to be forced into holding an EGM on a social justice issue.’ One hopes there will be more such meetings in the pipeline to help bring rogue corporations to heel. After this attempt to squash discussion perhaps Woolies can stop pretending to being communityfriendly and just admit it’s another booze-and-gambling The Central Intelligence Agency continues to position UFOS disguised as clouds over Mt Chincogan, creating interference in those protective silver foil caps which you see some baron. ■ ■ ■ ■

The likely ‘discovery’ of the Higgs boson particle last week excited physicists immensely and the news media willingly joined in the frenzy. If you can understand particle physics, then your brain is probably too big, but basically in this theory, the Higgs field has a non-zero field everywhere and other massive elementary particles obtain mass through the continuous interaction with this field, though of course not all elementary particles have mass. It’s the mass that’s important to keeping things hanging together. ‘Bosons’ were named after Indian physicist Satyendranath Bose and the Higgs Boson after English physicist Peter Higgs, who Stephen Hawking reckons should get a Nobel Prize for his work in positing broken symmetry in electroweak theory. We hope that clears things up. If not, take two aspirin and call a particle physicist in the morning. Or you could read the article which suggests ‘The Higgs particle is now arguably more relevant than God’ at http:// Or, better still, Mungo MacCallum explains

why matter matters this week and develop my beliefs,’ which on Echonetdaily www.echonet- we guess could include killing people for tearing pages out of books. The funny thing is that ■ ■ ■ ■ At the other end of the human behaviour spectrum, a bunch of loonies in Pakistan invaded a police station and killed a ‘blasphemer’ for tearing pages out of a book, which allegedly was the Koran. Blind devotion and mob frenzy, two of the best tools of psychopaths everywhere. Backlash has never quite got why God’s creation – let’s posit a human being as God’s creation for one second, despite the Higgs boson – should be considered less sacred than a book and worthy of murder for disrespecting a book, even if said book were God’s handiwork.
