stARTing them young

BayFM subscriber goal reached

In conjunction with this year’s second annual Byron Bay Surf Festival, the ‘stART Me Up’ art competition has been announced. It’s an opportunity for young artists to be exhibited during the Byron Bay Surf Festival in October, win prizes and be mentored. Entrants as young as 4 to 18 years are invited, and submissions are sought through schools or from individuals. Recipient of first prize in the 14 to 18 year division will receive a six-month mentorship under the expert tutelage of James McMillan and the designers at REAL Creative Design Studio.

Exhibition October 27 For the remaining divisions, an ESP Surfboard, Sideways Skateboard, product packs from Volcom, Skullcandy, Circus Arts and Byron Skateboard Coaching will be on offer. And no-one will leave emptyhanded; each entrant will receive a goody bag full of treats from the fes-

tival sponsors. Three divisions are open, four to eight years, nine to 13 years and 14 to 18 years, and work is limited to 350mm x 350mm, but subject and medium are hindered only by the imagination. Photography, paint, collage or pencil; anything is welcome and an exhibition of the entries will be on display at the Byron Youth Services Centre on Saturday, October 27. The stART Me Up exhibition won’t be the only event of the day to thrill and entertain the younger generations, with the youth centre also hosting skateboard demos and safety talks from Early Skateboards and Byron Skateboard Coaching, a breakdancing contest, art workshops, live screenprinting, marine debris art creations, face painting, live music from a collection of talented young locals, even a hula-hooping workshop. Remember, schools are also encouraged to apply; visit www.byronbaysurffestival.com for more.

The Festival of Roadside Recycling The Community Independents group has announced its intention of establishing a new festival for the Byron Shire, if elected at the council election on September 8. Its aim, according to lead candidate Paul Spooner, is to replace the kerbside annual collection service that was abolished by the current council. ‘We support the development of community events and festivals that reflect the cultural desires of our vibrant region. ‘Especially, when festivals contribute to the community in a positive and environmentally

friendly way. The new festival will aim to involve the whole community in celebrating our collective abundance.

Involve community ‘A key feature will be bringing neighbourhoods together to celebrate our common need for sharing and caring.’ As for the musical content of the festival, Mr Spooner says, ‘We will be open to all forms of musical engagement on the streets of our towns from trash-can drumming to tennis-racket strumming.’

The future of the Byron Bay swimming pool has sparked debate between mayoral hopeful Diane Woods and outgoing Greens mayor Jan Barham. Cr Woods claims it’s a major financial issue, with land-swap deals between the council and the state government failing to eventuate into council’s control. ‘Motions made by Greens councillors Simon Richardson and Tom Tabart in 2010 ended the chances of this happening,’ she says. ‘The Crown wants to separate the business and the pool, so that they will exist as separate commercial entities and separate pieces of physical land.’ Mayor Barham told The

Echo, ‘Its a case of the state wanting the cash cow isolated and leaving council with the community costs.’ The matter will be tabled at this Thursday’s council meeting on August 30.

PCYC to manage sports complex The Police Citizens Youth Clubs (PCYC) will soon take up residence at Byron Shire Council’s sport and cultural complex, council has announced. Mayor Jan Barham says a benefit is that the PCYC services and programs would come at no cost to Council. The length of the lease is yet to be determined.

Mayoral candidate Sol Ibrahim is proposing to build a combined cycling and walking track on the disused rail line that runs through Byron Shire. He claims the project would be a first step in reviving the area’s tourism. ‘I believe it could form the start of a rebranding effort for our shire’s tourism, wherein we could begin to move away from the perception that Byron is simply a party town,’ Mr Ibrahim says. If the state government de-

cides not to run the train line again, Mr Ibrahim says the project could go ahead, creating jobs and providing ongoing benefits for the community. ‘The cost of the project would be relatively low when compared to creating entirely new roads and pathways, and I do believe we have a good case to request state and federal tourism funding on this project.’ He says initially the project would link the industrial estate, Belongil, Byron and Lilli Pilli, and more stages are planned.

Chad’s skating for child obesity and literacy ‘Walking the Walk and Skating the Skate’ is the motto of the Life’s Awesome, a campaign to help combat both childhood obesity and the issue of lower literacy levels in boys. Local author Chad Kolcze will next week begin a ‘BIG Skate’, skateboarding from Canberra to Thredbo to raise awareness of these two important issues. The BIG Skate hopes to gain the attention of policy-making politicians by starting the skate from parliament house next Monday. Visit www. activekidsbooks.com/category/events for more information.

Rescue services converged on a rural property in Upper Wilsons Creek on the weekend in response to an emergency call involving a fallen tree. Due to lack of landing sites, the Westpac Rescue Helicopter winched a doctor and paramedics into a rural property at approximately 5pm on Saturday to aid an elderly resident who was trapped under a tree he had knocked while mowing. The 70-year-old male was attended to at the scene and stabilised then transported by road ambulance to an oval in Mullumbimby before being transferred to Lismore Base Hospital where he was treated for multiple injuries.

Heat turned up on MP Page over hospital plan Luis Feliu

The fight to retain Mullumbimby Hospitalâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s emergency overnight doctor has intensified with Ballina MP and minister for the north coast Don Page pressed in parliament to stand by his recent comments that he didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t support the contentious plan for a telehealth trial due to serious community concern. MPs in both state and federal parliaments have turned the heat up recently on Mr Page and health minister Jillian Skinner, urging them to scrap the plan where the overnight doctor would be replaced by a teleconferencing video link operated by a nurse. The six-month trial, initially with both a nurse and a supervising doctor on shift, is expected to start in October. Mr Page earlier this month was accused by Richmond MP Justine Elliot in federal parliament of being â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;either unwilling or unable to to stand up and fight for the residents of the north coastâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;, while state opposition leader John Robertson and other MPs have asked why the trial was going ahead against the wishes of locals. On Thursday in state parliament, Mr Page sidestepped an

opposition question for him to repeat his comments made to a recent public rally against the removal of the overnight doctor. His refusal to directly answer the question was seized on this week by NSW Upper House MP Walt Secord who said Mr Page had been â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;caught outâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; saying to the community meeting that he opposed the video link â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;and the complete oppositeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; in parliament. Health minister Jillian Skinner, who was also questioned about the issue just before Mr Page, said she had spoken to Mr Page and given him â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;full informationâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; about the replacement of the doctor and he was â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;very happy with my explanationâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;. Mr Secord told The Echo that Mr Page was refusing to repeat his support for the community on the issue. â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;This is just another example of where you cannot trust the Nationals. They say one thing in regional areas and another in Sydney when they are sitting with their Liberal masters,â&#x20AC;&#x2122; Mr Secord said. Falling in, Mrs Elliot also joined the attack, saying, â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;earlier this month, Mr Page told residents he had concerns about the video link, but when asked directly, he fell in behind the

health ministerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s plan to replace a doctor with a video cameraâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;. But Mr Page has hit back, saying there was â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;no inconsistency in what I said in Mullum and in Parliamentâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;. â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;In Mullum I said I had listened to community concerns and I could not support the trial until the issues were addressed. Chris Crawford said he would talk to nurses and clinicians re the concerns and report back. I am awaiting his report. This is totally consistent with what I said in parliament.â&#x20AC;&#x2122; Both Labor MPs have called on Mr Page to again face the community â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;and explain his total change of position in Sydneyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;. Ms Skinner told parliament the hospital faced â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;ongoing difficulties in rostering a permanent doctor at Mullumbimby, so there was a considerable amount of money being spent on locumsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;. â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;That was not a sensible way to go because Mullumbimby Hospital has, on average, one patient overnight. A locum doctor charges more than $100,000, but there is an alternative: this program that has been in place through Hunter New England hospitals for a long time. For example, in Macksville, one of the places

I visited, the program is very successfully operating there, and it is also operating in southern NSW. â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;It is about connecting smaller hospitals with bigger hospitals where the expert clinicians are available so that they can give advice about whether a patient needs to be put in the back of an ambulance, whether a patient can be treated onsite or whether a patient can be referred off to a general practitioner â&#x20AC;&#x201C; provided, of course, that general practitioners are available.â&#x20AC;&#x2122; In response to a question from opposition MP Michael Daley, Mr Page told parliament the proposed telehealth trial was â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;considered necessary because the hospital is unable to fill the medical roster with a doctor between the hours of 11pm and 7amâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;. He said that during the recent public meeting, local health district chief executive Chris Crawford undertook to work through community concerns with clinicians and with nurses. â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;I understand that those discussions are ongoing and I look forward to hearing from the chief executive officer at the conclusion of those discussions,â&#x20AC;&#x2122; Mr Page concluded.

iByron portal launched An online portal for community groups launched last week: http://byronbay.nsw.au. Called iByron and built for the Community Centre by Community Engine, the website has been developed over the past 18 months say its creators. ‘iByron will enable people throughout the Byron shire to publicise and communicate their projects and activities,’ said the Community Centre’s Paul Spooner. ‘We’ve never had this before in such a clear and accessible way. It’s bringing community organisations into the twenty first century’. The website will utilise social media and YouTube, providing simple web publishing and planning for groups and indi-

viduals who may otherwise be unable to afford or access such tools. As well as being able to search for and communicate with community groups, the site will promote a calendar of events and volunteer registry. At the launch Community Engine also gave out three oversized cheques as a part of their $100,000 giveaway to northern rivers not-for-profit groups. Rainforest Rescue, the Byron Youth Service and the Byron Community Centre all received their first cheques. ‘We have close to $90,000 left to give,’ said Community Engine’s Dean Power, ‘so we strongly encourage Byron groups to actively participate in this giveaway’.

Wallabies killed in nature reserve Ballina police are investigating the site of multiple wallaby deaths on Seven Mile Beach. Police say as many as 12 of the protected animals have been found dead in the area over the past week, some with obvious bullet wounds. The discovery comes just weeks after the state government announced that some na-

tional parks in the state would be open to shooting of feral animals. Wallabies were not on the list of permissible animals to be shot and Seven Mile Beach Nature Reserve was not one of the parks opened for shooting. Anyone with information can call Ballina police on 6681 8699 or Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000.

Action on energy and its rising costs must be a top priority for local government, according to mayoral candidate Basil Cameron. Launching his local energy policy at the old Mullumbimby Power Station at Laverty’s Gap, Cr Cameron said, ‘Byron businesses and households are paying too much for electricity and even bigger energy price hikes are in the pipeline. ‘It’s time to move energy policy up Council’s agenda to ensure our community reaps the full benefits of the shift to

a more energy-efficient economy with a minimum of pain. ‘As mayor I will invite adjoining councils to support a one-day roundtable of energy experts with sound knowledge of our region. The goal of the roundtable will be very specific: to identify the most feasible and strategic next steps to accelerate our transition towards a lowcarbon regional economy.’ He says between 1926 and 1990 the power station supplied electricity to Mullumbimby, Byron Bay, and Bangalow using hydro-electricity.

Local News Telstra cuts 116 local jobs Chris Dobney

Telstra management announced last week that it will close its Goonellabah call centre in October, with the loss of 116 jobs to the region. Less than two years ago the telco promised that it was still committed to the area after it closed its Grafton call centre with a similar number of redundancies. The company blames the cuts on ‘changing technologies and customer trends’ but it has been revealed many of the jobs are being offshored to the Philippines. Staff have been told they can apply for other jobs within the Telstra network around the country or accept redundancy. Lismore MP Thomas George said he was ‘flabbergasted and incredibly disappointed’ by Telstra’s decision, but did say there was some good news on the horizon for Lismore. ‘In the face of this terrible news, it is important to remember that Lismore does have a bright future. Jobs in our region grew by 500 from June to July this year, and the unemployment rate fell 0.3 per cent.

Kaaren Schimana says, ‘My speciality, Cuban dance, my interests and lifestyle are sustainable, healthy, community oriented and culturally passionate’. ‘I have spent the last year travelling back and forth to Cuba studying dance, listening to the music and checking out the life and culture of Cubans in the current time of change under Fidel’s regime.’ Kaaren attended the professors program at the International Baila en Cuba Dance Congress in Havana in 2011 and studied the many generes of Cuban cultural dance. ‘Every province in Cuba has its own flavour of dance styles and musical and cultural expression. It is truly a feast for dance and music enthusiasts’, she says. ‘I travelled the island dancing with some of Cuba’s best teachers and to some of the best music Cuba has on offer.’ Kaaren will take a tour group back to the country she loves

Cr Woods and Barham at odds over LEP Hans Lovejoy

Mayoral hopeful Diane Woods is sticking to her calls to review the draft local environment plan (LEP) despite outgoing mayor Jan Barham disputing many of her claims. Cr Woods told The Echo she ‘was absolutely right’ with her press release sent to media last week. In it, she claims that the draft plan places in jeopardy the ability of local farmers to provide food for the shire, potentially devalues property and takes away landowners’ rights. ‘The draft LEP has E2 and E3 zonings,’ she says, ‘both of which can be applied to rural properties and both of which create significant restrictions for the landholders.

‘I will be doing a review immediately,’ she says. ‘If successful, the course of action will be dependent upon directions from the Department of Planning, who are already concerned about our zoning.’ But Mayor Barham counterclaimed last week by saying, ‘Generally no areas of cleared farmland have been identified as E2 or E3 – so in reality no farmer should be adversely affected. ‘The environmental zones have been based  on mapping of the shire for high-conservation-value vegetation, which will be protected. Council has no interest in zoning cleared farmland to these zones.’    Cr Barham went on to say, ‘The Native Vegetation Act 2003, which overides the LEP,

allows for farmers to carry out routine agricultural activities. ‘If a tree needed to be lopped and it was considered to be a routine agricultural activitiy consistent with the Native Vegetation Act, then no approval would be required.’ Cr Barham concluded by saying the formal exhibition process would address any public concerns such as the accuracy of E2 and E3 mapping. But Cr Woods isn’t backing down, claiming she is recently aware of three properties’ values that would be decreased by 50 per cent, ‘if the person wants to sell under the current scenario.’ ‘Also, I have not addressed the effect on New Brighton, South Golden Beach, Suffolk Park and of course Belongil.’

Lismore activist Al Oshlack has forced Rous Water to halt the process of tendering for the construction of 12 dosing plants after filing a challenge against the organisation’s fluoridation plans in the Supreme Court last week. Rous Water chairman Phil Silver said he hoped the state government would help out with costs for the latest challenge.‘Rous Water isn’t in the dental health business; we’re just trying to comply with a direction under the Fluoride Act,’ he said. Of the three shires supplied by Rocky Creek Dam – Byron, Ballina and Lismore, Byron has decided to go it alone and continue to supply unfluoridated water.

Mayoral hopeful Q&A part III

Cr Simon Richardson, Sol Ibrahim, Morgan, Cr Diane Woods, Jack Sugarman, Cr Basil Cameron

Hans Lovejoy

More space this week allows The Echo to publish previous answers the mayor candidates gave last week. These are also full answers – unedited for length. A response to the Ocean Shores Roundhouse can still be found at www.echo.net.au under the ‘Opinion and Analysis’ section on the home page. How will you work with a newly appointed general manager? What qualities will you be looking for? Sol Ibrahim

The relationship between the general manager and the mayor/councillors is crucial to the effective functioning of a local government. In some respects, the GM has greater legislative authority than the council, particularly when it comes to day-to-day management, staff performance, and the delivery of services. Having previously worked in a council management role, I have a real insight into some of the issues that can arise. In my current role as a CEO, I work closely with a board of management, a role very similar to that of a GM. This experience also provides me with a practical understanding of how to create and nurture an effective senior management structure. The most important thing to get right will be the position description and KPIs for the GM. Closely related to this are the delegations of authority. ‘Who decides what’ is absolutely critical to an effective and cooperative relationship between the GM and the councillors. Micro-management by councillors will surely result in tension and inefficiency. The role of council is to ensure that the community’s interests and needs are clearly articulated in policy and planning instruments. Once done, the GM must be respected and trusted to implement them. Council must then regularly review the GM’s performance in a professional and ethical manner. Where major decisions have to be made, these should be made by the councillors after polling the wider community. This assures the GM and senior staff that their council respects and listens to the community. Ultimately, the example set by the councillors will flow down to all the staff. GMs are often recruited from the ranks of directors of planning or finance. I think for our shire it would be more suitable to look for a past director of community services. Professionals from this background can have a different approach to customer service and innovation.

ship between the mayor and the GM is pivotal to the efficient running of the shire. Our interaction must be respectful and flexible. The new GM must, above all else, possess outstanding leadership qualities as well as a sound general managerial track record.

The question is currently academic, perhaps hypothetical. As the editor insists that one be brief and I do not want to bore the readers with a free tutorial on law – simply put – the Local Government Act (LGA) is state administrative law that is contrary to overriding laws, including the Australian Constitution. As too, provisions within that Act are contrary to the stated purposes of that Act. Don’t panic, this candidate will not spend a cent of ratepayer funds on this issue.

ie commercial/retail below with strictly residential (not unlawful backpacker accommodation) flats above. The aforementioned would also ensure that Byron Bay does not â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;dieâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; during winter. (g) Concentrate on health and safety aspects of affordable housing, rather than city-type designs. A â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;hippie communeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; should not be an offence against local government council regulations in Byron Shire (of all places), as long as the owner complies with health, safety, hygiene, environmental requirements. I could go on â&#x20AC;&#x201C; but the editor may complain about the lack of brevity.

best way to achieve this is by supporting applications from urban and rural home owners to create a single granny flat or studio on their property. This type of accommodation not only is ideal for the young and elderly. For home owners and farmers, they can provide a little extra income to keep them on their land, income that will ultimately be spent in our local shops and services. In turn, council can sell its expertise to residents making applications, and then gain reasonable rates thereafterâ&#x20AC;Ś another simple win-win solution. What is the main weakness of Byron Council and how can it be improved?

have been just minor problems which could have been solved if council had shown a willingness to do so. Morgan

That depends upon what The Echo means by â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;councilâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;, ie the mayor and councillors, the general manager and/or senior management or the council staff. Based upon personal observation and experience, the majority of the council staff are hard-working people; no â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;weaknessâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;. The main â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;weaknessâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; of the mayor and councillors has been their failure to prioritise spending and squander ratepayer funds on unnecessary reports and bogus â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;legal adviceâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;. By electing a mayor who has the guts to appropriately deal with a general manager who does not concede to reality; that Byron Shire is a local government area within a democratic country; I will prioritise spending and will not waste funds on unnecessary â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;legal adviceâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; in order to deal with issues that require a commonsense solution. Sol Ibrahim

For any council to be effective in the eyes of their community, there has to be an agreed vision for the shire, and a clear plan of

action. I think this has been missing for successive councils. Without this vision, we have ad-hoc applications for development and knee-jerk responses from council. All too often this leads to expensive and wasteful litigation. This waste in turn means less funds available for infrastructure and services. In response, council needs to invent more and more ways to levy fees and charges on locals and visitors. Does this all seem familiar? We can turn this around by establishing 12-year plans for each distinct community, based on direct input from residents and business operators. We should utilise councilâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s legislative capacity to conduct polls to establish what the majority of people really want. Polling also provides an opportunity for our most creative and enterprising citizens to be heard and valued.

with the new general manager will be critical and I expect my legal background, experience as deputy mayor, working for community groups and the public sector will assist. Cr Simon Richardson

Over the last 15 or so years the general efficiency of the council has been in decline, with a consequent reduction of some services and an increase in costs. Addressing the organisation and governance of the executive functions is urgently needed and will be the primary task of a new GM. Moving the elected body away from adversarial decision making to a more co-operative body would be my goal as mayor. What Byron Bay bypass options, if any, do you advocate?

I advocate a variety of immediate and mid-term actions detailed in the Byron Bay Traffic and Parking Management Project Reference Group discussion paper of May 2012. A second inbound lane on Lawson Street and direct access for inbound traffic into the Lawson Street north car park. Reinstate two-way traffic on Bay Street and Middleton Street. Provide long-term parking on Butler Street close to the rail line, with footpaths and lighting into the town centre. Proceed with the creation of a link road from Shirley Street to the council-owned land near Mitre 10. Council should immediately seek state and federal government support, as well as establishing a special contributions fund from any new residential or business developments that increase inbound traffic to Byron Bay.

Cr Diane Woods

I have witnessed many traffic studies at enormous cost to council with no real resolution on traffic management. I am willing to discuss further the option of the mini-bypass that has been proposed, and any other option that may come forward in the next term of council. I will not spend any more of ratepayers money on studies.

Cr Basil Cameron

Lack of cohesion amongst councillors and demoralisation of staff. Council will work most effectively when there is a strong alignment between councillors, staff and the community. As mayor, I will provide the leadership in the chamber, with staff and the community to get the best value for resi-

Cr Basil Cameron

Studies show that most traffic is heading for the town centre. Any bypass will reduce travel times for cross-town traffic, but will not reduce traffic congestion in the town centre. I do not support the so-called minibypass as it will impact heavily on the amenity and heritage values of the town centre. continued on page 13

SIMON RICHARDSON for MAYOR 2012

The Story So Far â&#x20AC;&#x201C; The Byron Shire we love.

The reason I decided to live in Byron Shire is the same reason I want to be mayor- the community. When I arrived in the Shire, I was moved by the way the community cared, celebrated, worked, volunteered and was involved. That, and the natural beauty, was what made it special. This exciting community and protected environment is no accident, it has been supported with commitment and protected with conviction. I want my family to enjoy the quality of life that comes with a vibrant community and a caring council. To preserve our way of life, we need to preserve our successes. When you are considering where to place your trust for the next four years, it is vital you consider the past and the future and who is best placed to preserve the community we love.

Did you ever think you could aďŹ&#x20AC;ord to purchase a new home in the Byron Shire for under $300,000?

Along with the ďŹ rst new home government grant of $15,000 as of 1st October 2012 and stamp duty exemption you can have up to a $30,000 deposit

Waiting until that deposit is saved before being considered for a loan is one of the hardest hurdles to cross for most people whose day to day living costs restrict their ability to save. It almost sounds too good to be true but come along on Saturday and I will show you how easy it can be.

Investors note: This work shop is not just for the ďŹ rst home buyers but investors as well.

Do the sums: Surely if you owned a new 2bdrm home in a new estate in walking distance to town for under $300,000 it would almost surely be worth $350,000 to $380,000 by lock up stage.No guarantees but the ďŹ gures add up.

To resolve congestion in town requires many solutions including more bicycles, park and ride, improved public transport, working with the tourism industry to develop new experiences for the visitor that are less reliant on private cars. A longer bypass could complement such a range of measures.. Morgan

Dealing with other matters that affect traffic flow, before building a bypass would be an intelligent option. For example improving the condition of Ewingsdale Road and other roads that slow traffic flow, improving parking availability at the edge of town, improving low-scale public transport (shuttle buses between villages and Byron Bay), removing the tree at the first roundabout (Jonson/Lawson streets) that blocks vision of oncoming traffic (and their indicators), improve the ‘river delta’ flow of traffic through Byron Bay by connecting uncompleted streets. If, after addressing cheaper options, a bypass is still required, it should actually bypass the entire township, not merely bypass a block or two and ridiculously exit into the middle of town. Cr Simon Richardson

Both an alternative entry to the CBD and a more extensive bypass are still under consideration; early estimates place the cost at many millions. The recent stakeholder committee I have chaired has come up with a number of recommendations that will go some way to alleviate the pre-bypass situation. Creating a gateway to town with park and ride offering different modes of transport to

eration across the Alps in Europe and elsewhere around the world, would drastically cut traffic and allow us to move towards creating a pedestrianfriendly town, such as making Jonson Street a pedestrian area. With the projected development-driven traffic increases in Ewingsdale Road there will be no cheap solution and the provision of state funding is central to any initiative. Jack Sugarman:

A main bypass through Butler Street should be started immediately. Also from the Woolies petrol station on Ewingsdale road, a road could join up to the old Bangalow road crossing, near the high school.

In December 2009 The Echo published a piece I wrote raising concerns about the scale of the project, level of debt and substantial drawing on shirewide s94 funds. Since then only Cr Morrisey and I resisted attempts to increase the budget and consistently tried to have council consider impacts on funds for other projects and the annual budget. As councillor, I helped lead the search for a site for sporting facilities in the north of the shire. Negotiations are under way to secure a site. Facilities will be developed gradually as s94 funds recover. I believe council has now approached the ongoing operation of the Sports and Cultural Centre as a problem rather than an opportunity.

As much as I hate to be the one to burst the naivety bubble of land-based ‘sporting groups’ within Byron Shire: think laterally. $17 million dollars plus spent so (how many?) Byronians (whom the state loves so much – not – that the state is conspiring to make null and void Byron Shire), can have a land-based sporting facility. It is practically useless due to inappropriate location and inadequate construction. The intended primary function of the Ewingsdale ‘sports

I think everyone would agree that the north of the shire needs their own sporting facilities for local activities, while the Ewingsdale facility can now cater for larger events. Ideally, the Ewingsdale facility, if properly managed and utilised, should create an income stream that can be directed to establishing facilities in the north.

about the mounting foreign debt, made the incautious remark that if things did not improve Australia could be in danger of becoming a banana republic. The phrase hit the money market like a bomb, and with the prime minister Bob Hawke out of the country, none of his colleagues had the clout, or the nerve, to suggest that the treasurer might be a

Monday’s papers thus carried headlines like: ‘Hawke moves against Keating’ and ‘Hawke pushes Keating aside’, which prompted an expletivefilled phone call from the outraged treasurer. Things eventually calmed

The last thing the government wanted was for any minister to pour Roundup on the fragile garden of business confidence. by Mungo MacCallum bit over the top. Next day Hawke, who was on an official visit to Japan, was asked by the travelling press if he agreed with Keating. Hawke replied tersely: ‘No, I don’t’, and having conceded that his treasurer’s remarks, if taken out of context, were ‘rather horrific’, went off to a banquet. This apparently insouciant attitude did nothing to calm the situation at home, and eventually Hawke was persuaded to ring the deputy prime minister, Lionel Bowen, and direct him to set up a cabinet meeting for next Monday morning, which he would address by telephone. But he did not make his decision public. This was on the Friday night. Hawke spent the Saturday playing golf and watching sumo wrestling before flying on to Beijing next day. He declared himself ‘too busy’ to make any further comment on the controversy until told by his staff that the

carbon tax, with a little help from the mining resources tax. Well for starters the minerals mined at Olympic Dam are uranium and copper, neither of which is subject to the mining resource tax, and in any case the company’s statement said explicitly, ‘the tax environment for this project has not changed at all since we started working on it six or seven years ago’ – back in the Howard years. So, asked Leigh Sales on the 7.30 report, had Abbott actually read the statement. He said no. Next day, he said he had, but he thought the CEO of BHPBilliton, Marius Kloppers, was just being polite to the government; he knew as well as anyone else that it was actually the carbon tax. In other words, not only was Kloppers wrong, but he was deliberately lying about it. Good one, Tony. The hard fact is, of course, that even if the boom is not yet over, it is definitely winding down, mainly because demand is falling and the competition from other newly developed suppliers is becoming stronger. This combination is forcing down prices, but costs, driven largely by the high Australian dollar, are rising. Our resources won’t go away but their exploitation will be less frenetic and less profitable in future and it will deliver a lot less revenue to a needy and dependent government. Ferguson’s hyperbole should be read as a timely warning. This may not be the end, or even the beginning of the end, but it is certainly the end of the beginning.

down, but the financial panic triggered by that single ill-considered phrase became part of Labor’s folklore. Fortunately there was little risk of a repeat performance last week. When Keating talked, people sat up and listened. When Ferguson mumbles, the reaction is more likely to be: ‘What did he say?’ And in any case, Gillard’s efforts to defuse any potential crisis had some unexpected help from Tony Abbott, still determined to blame everything – and we mean everything – on the carbon tax to the exclusion of all else. Thus when BHP-Billiton announced that it was postponing the planned expansion of its huge Olympic Dam project because of ‘current market conditions including lower commodity prices and higher capital costs’ – the very conditions that led Ferguson to his pessimistic conclusion about Q See Mungo live at the boom – Abbott said no, of course the real reason was the www.echonetdaily.net.au

Letters Koala crisis

The ABC 4 Corners documentary was, as usual, lightweight and poorly researched. In fact the situation facing koala survival is much worse than reported. What’s astonishing is the failure of the doco to inform the viewers that the federal government has known about the koala crisis since 1998, when my group successfully listed the koala under the US Endangered Species Act as threatened. Nor was the important role of koalas in the ecosystem even hinted at, including their reliance on local ecosystems and the unique way the dietary needs are transferred from mother to cub. The program completely failed to acknowledge that it was a massive effort by grassroots groups in NSW, Queensland and Victoria at senate hearings that finally resulted in the koala being listed as threatened under the Environment Protection and Biodiversity Act – which basically is not going to hold up development and more destruction of their habitat. Environment minister Tony Burke’s hypocrisy is evident on a daily basis. Locally, the work of wildlife carers and the Lismore-based

to the carbon tax. In response to Jenny Coman’s letter in last week’s Echo I would simply elaborate that the point of my letter (and, contrary to Jenny’s belief, it was printed in full) was that the Greens’ immigration policy is a dog and unworthy of a party of alleged conservationists and that Bob Brown is responsible for that as it is a policy formulated while he was in office and which he has not disowned since. It’s history now, anyway, as Julia Gillard has demonstrated considerable political skills in capitulating to the Abbott view and getting the issue off the table, at least temporarily. It’s up to you, Jenny, if you have something to say in support of the Greens policy on immigration but it is a waste of time and print space to attack me personally; it simply demonstrates the paucity of your views.

Q Three weeks since the election candidates were announced and The Echo has not yet given its readers their names, the groups they are running under or their order in those groups, let alone candidate profiles. Oh, theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re on the Echonetdaily? Well, thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s nice for those who have internet access, but not all Echo readers do. What about those who donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t? Do they not count any more? Is this the class system for the 21st century â&#x20AC;&#x201C; those who have internet access, and the others, the peasants whose opinions donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t really matter? Of course, there are always the meet-the-candidates gigs, but hang on, â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;email your questionsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; â&#x20AC;&#x201C; looks like the peasants miss out again. At least The Echo will be able to select the questions to be asked, so that everything at those gigs will be safe and predictable. Nick Shand must be turning in his grave.

Q I am proud to stand as a candidate for Byron Shire Council with team Vision in Action. We are a diverse group of residents who, like so many of us, recognise the need for change. We are guided by principles of reasonableness, balance and common sense â&#x20AC;&#x201C; attributes requiring an ability to listen, an understanding of commonly held views and an understanding of community expectations in light of the prevailing legal and regulatory framework of local government. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m a lawyer. I know how expensive and bitter legal battles can be. Adopting an adversarial approach without careful consideration and clear policy guidelines is not productive of positive outcomes. We want to see a local government that is committed to service delivery across the whole Shire. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s time for a change of focus and a change of attitude.

pumping out, issue by vexed issue into his pop-up shop on Jonson Street and asked him. The fact that he has initiated twice as many notices of motion than Basil Cameron and Di Woods over the last four years represents that he is not just following the ideas of others and voting how they instruct them to but initiating progressive ideas and making changes. I want a mayor who is a leader, not a follower. Mel Gregory Federal Q I am running for council as part of Our Sustainable Future team. I believe one of the most serious challenges facing our Shire is addressing the lack of affordable housing. Housing stress puts people at risk of homelessness, and I feel particularly for our young in this plight. I think that we clearly need to put as much effort into caring for human needs as put into caring for our environment. If we as a community cannot provide more housing to cater to all strata of society, we run the risk of sliding inexorably into monoculture. In the last 15 years I’ve seen friends and acquaintances leave Byron Shire because they can no longer afford to stay. When young people cannot afford to live here, there is less likelihood of fresh recruits for the SES, Surf Lifesaving, Rural Fire Service and other services that are the glue of our community. This issue has to be addressed and council must play a role in facilitating change. I’m supporting Basil Cameron for mayor, and Our Sustainable Future team for council. Mandy Hallinan Our Sustainable Future Q I

have lived in Bangalow for six years and been active in many community campaigns, notably the Pacific Highway upgrade, the Bangalow interchange design and position, the urban release area plans, developer levies priorities (section 94 plan) and the Bowlo Rescue Committee. I have become increasingly concerned that the shire council merely pays lip-service to Bangalow’s needs and con-

cerns. For example, over $1 million of developer levies remains unspent on Bangalow infrastructure and we lack adequate bicycle paths, planning and heritage controls and, many say, insufficient parking. I will give Bangalow both a resident voice in council and a focus to get its issues before council.  Growth and change is inevitable but it should occur in a sustainable way that ensures towns in our shire, such as Bangalow, can embrace growth without loss of amenity. Byron Bay has suffered already and Bangalow is in danger too from overdevelopment. My aim in council is to support Our Sustainable Future policies that will permit Bangalow to retain its unique form, amenity and attractiveness to visitors and residents alike. I plan also to continue vigilance over the Pacific Highway upgrade, to minimise its adverse scenic and traffic flow impacts in the southern part of the shire. As a high priority, I will advocate for a sound business plan to make the Byron sports complex financially viable rather than a drain on shire finances for years to come. Tony Hart Our Sustainable Future Q The Greens’ track record in council includes positive action to look after some of the most vulnerable members of our community: people with disabilities, our young people and our ageing population. We have seen the development and implementation of the Disability Access and Inclusion Plan, a vital Youth Strategy and Action Plan and a much needed Positive Ageing Strategy. A demonstration of the strength of a community is how well it embraces people who are vulnerable and have varied abilities. Making sure everyone is able to contribute their insights, experience and skills. We need an incoming council that is passionately committed to seeing the continued implementation and development of these strategies. Clare Hocking Greens candidate

and mayoral candidates! As there are only three candidates that have previously served on council, its going to be difficult for voters to cut through the ‘poly-speak’ and ‘spin’ to decide who should lead us over the next period. As far as voting for a new mayor, I don’t think people should be running for this position without prior experience as a councillor in the shire. That leaves just a couple of legitimate options. It’s going to be important that the new mayor is able to work well with the other elected councillors, business and community groups. Working successfully with others is also the reason I am running as a Community Independent. What sets us apart from the other candidates is that our team, headed up by Paul Spooner and Jeannette Martin, can promote better communication between elected councillors, staff and the community. If elected, Paul and Jeannette wont get carried away with themselves as they have a proven trackrecord of working with people to get things done in our community. Communication skills will be key to the success of the new council. Michael Moriarty Community Independents

Whenever there has been a Council-produced problem, whether supporting local surf operators’ licences or ensuring our market remain locally managed, I spend whatever time is needed in fixing them. Why? Well I first came here on my way to moving to Cairns. I sat on the rocks in front of the Main Beach carpark and fell in love with the place. But it was the community that worked, lived and celebrated here that made me switch from Cairns to here. And make me want to be mayor. Over the next four years, I will be focusing on tackling holiday letting of our residential areas – we can’t have a community in Sunrise or Suffolk if no-one lives there. This will allow for more houses to be bought and rented by families and workers who are increasingly having to leave the area. I will be QA lot of rhetoric in the media this focusing on further developing week from Byron Shire councillor our local economy, promoting our Q

ever-growing creative industries and supporting our local farmers to continue to sell their produce to us through farmers marketsemploying hundreds and keeping local industries in local hands. Simon Richardson Greens mayoral candidate QWent to the meet-the-candidates

meeting at Bangalow Bowlo last night. Desperate people needing somewhere to go on a Thursday night. Not. At least I got to hear most of the candidates spin their spiel about how they are going to change Byron Shire for the better. I have been listening to this bullshit for 25+years. What changes? SFA. I will, if elected, ring up Don Page and ask him to appoint an administrator if he has the balls to carve off Ocean Shores to Tweed Council and amalgamate the remainder of Byron Shire with Ballina, Lismore and Rous councils to form a north coast regional council run from Goonellabah.The new mayor and councillors should be remunerated adequately for these are fulltime jobs. Jack Sugarman Hayters Hill Q Even more than usual council candidates and their supporters are filling the media with untruths, unrealistic motherhood statements, promises based on ignorance and dodgy claims of achievements to such an extent that any meaningful rebuttal is swamped by the volume. Just a sample from the last Echo – ‘Council wastes money on legal expenses’ – no, legal costs have reduced but remain a vital requirement to maintain some control over poor development. ‘This councillor or that has delivered something’ – no, councillors can only deliver anything with a majority vote (eg the Brunswick Heads skatepark went through on the mayor’s casting vote). ‘We will bring back balance to the planning process’ – no idea what this means but it is certainly in ignorance of the proposed new state policy. I could go on... Cr Tom Tabart Bangalow

Goonengerry PUBLIC SCHOOL Forward into the Future The Byron Bay Liquor Accord (BBLA) was congratulated by Police and The Office of Liquor and Gaming (OLGR) at the latest Liquor Accord meeting. A representative from OLGR told the Accord she couldn’t be more pleased and encouraged the Accord to keep up the good work. The Police similarly addressed the Accord and also commended the Accord on their efforts. Chairperson of the Accord, Elke van Haandel, was very pleased with the results but added ‘the effectiveness of BBLA is compromised by having no council support or involvement at meetings. Liquor Accords are supposed to comprise local police, local operators and local council and although the Accord and Police are making a difference we would benefit from the other main contributor being in attendance at all meetings.’ BBLA is now focusing on harm minimisation over the Schoolies period in late November. The BBLA has donated $3,000 to support the Byron Schoolies Safety Response and will continue to work with other groups in the community to manage this high risk period.

Commanding algorithms to seek out strange species Story & photo Mary Gardner

The error message was ‘there’s no face in your profile image. Is this correct?’ In that instant the full weight of 21st century technology pressed up against me, whispering with menace. Somewhere in this dark internet alley, an algorithm was judg-

ing against my upload picture. Its pseudo-human courtesy masked the threat being made by its cold binary power. It had me in its corner, with a knifepoint under my ribcage. It could kill my message. What do I do? With a click of my mouse, it was all over. Like an ancient hero in a saga, I gave a reply.

‘Yes’ appeased the monstrous threat and opened a magic door. My photo was escorted into the virtual world. Why did the hidden wizard behind the algorithm train it to accept an override? I may never know. The chill down my spine faded instantly but I hold on to the painful memory. I belong to a species that created an electronic power called ‘face recognition’. This does not ‘see’ marine jelly creatures any more than it ‘sees’ millions of other species which also live on earth. But throughout our daily modern lives, each of us now ‘sees’ these other species as if for the very first time. Everyone I know with a mobile phone has at least one photo of another species saved on it. Some people tell me their photo is something strange: an insect, a bird, a blob of living slime which surely has a name. Again and again they say ‘I never noticed it much before’. These observations are hot binary instants: do I ignore this or do I look at this a bit more? Then the next question: whatever will I do with it?

front of a large parade holding a placard stating that climate change was a hoax.

Expect more food riots like the ones that began the Arab

Coastal Wilderness (www. alcw.org.au/). You could check your photo against others to see what is that creature. Perhaps it’s a rare species or even a ‘new’ one? Is it ‘new’ to here or perhaps ‘unknown to science’? You can even upload your image to the collection. Hey, there’s a call-out for a photo of an albino wallaby! Now that’s something to watch out for.

I’d love to see an empty shop in town become a ‘discovery centre’ for social and natural history. From this hub, we can also provide virtual support for walkabouts. Whether it’s a moment noticing something odd or a day spent walking or swimming the area, technology can help us understand more of what surprises and enchants us. The centre could broadcast live transmissions from our underwater sites or other secret places. ‘Knowledge tourism’ creates good employment. ‘Road scholars’, lifelong learning travellers are Byron’s untapped market.

OCAL YOUTH-MUSIC MENTORS, MUSICIANS AND NEW MOTHERS SCARLETT AFFECTION ARE ABOUT TO LAUNCH THEIR MUCHANTICIPATED NEW ALBUM FOREVER IS A LONG LONG TIME, PRODUCED BY DAVE SYMES (SARAH BLASKO, MISSY HIGGINS).

The Echo caught up with the girls in the lead-up to the launch, which sees one of their first shows in the area in some time. How has becoming mothers changed the way you both work? We have far less time! No long afternoons of jamming and singing our heads off!  We have become much more efficient.  How are you overcoming the challenges? We do a lot of phone conferencing, emailing, and thank god for voice memos to quickly capture song ideas while holding the baby! Do you still feel as driven to perform and create music or has that moved to the backburner? Yes, even more so, which does seem curious. We both have song ideas pouring out of us; locking down time to flesh them out and expand on them is our current challenge. Obviously, things like excessive touring wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t be happening â&#x20AC;&#x201C; can you imagine, weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d have to travel with nannies, a trailer, a whole entourage! Someone like Clare Bowditch is quite inspiring (did we mention we are supporting her at her Bangalow show in October?). She has twin boys, for godssake, and tours with family support. All this is possible of course but we are quite content to play locally for the moment.  Tell me a little about your new album. Why did you choose Dave Symes to produce? We are really proud of it. It sounds like us. We recorded the core band live so thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a really lovely honest feel to the songs. Glenn from Vitamin introduced us to Dave Symes, who is a fabulous musician, arranger and producer. He was the musical director for artists such as Missy Higgins and Sarah Blasko and he has a great ear for harmonies. He was a delight to work with and we think the product sounds beautiful! Melia, you were a finalist in the Telstra Songwriters competition. How has that recognition helped Scarlett Affection or your songwriting? I was a finalist in the Telstra Road to Discovery as one of the top-four songwriters in the country â&#x20AC;&#x201C; which meant a serious songwriting bootcamp, a trip to Sydney and a guitar! Four of our songs have reached the finals in the USA Show Me the Music Competition, which is really thrillingâ&#x20AC;Ś

live music

first prize is a trip to the States but we havenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t heard the result yetâ&#x20AC;Ś fingers crossed! There is a bit of â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;countryâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; vibe on this record, lots of dusty roads and big paddocks. Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d love to get back to America; weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d particularly love to visit Nashvilleâ&#x20AC;Ś weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll keep you posted! But all these acknowledgements and achievements serve as a great affirmation from our musical peers and the industry at large that we are making music that affects people, which is what we are setting out to do! What do you think are your songwriting strengths? I think we can write big ballads with emotive heart. I love songs that affect me and make me feel something, lyrics and stories with meaning and a melody that can break your heart or make you feel uplifted. As a songwriting team, we are really enjoying the collaborative approach Tell us what to expect for the local launch? The Forever is a long long time album launch will be a celebration of the creation and completion of Scarlett Affectionâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s new album. There will be some stunning musicians on stage, tinkling on the centreâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s grand piano, great original songs, costume changes, their very first film clip, and thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll be lots of harmonies and stories! And a brand-new album for sale in the foyerâ&#x20AC;Ś a fun and fabulous night of sisters in song! Byron Community Centre on Saturday. Tickets from the venue www. byroncentre.com.au. More info from www.scarlettaffection.com.

TAKING A TRIP DOWN LANIE LANE

PIGEON LANDS ON THE NORTHERN

NATHAN KAYE AT THE BEACH

Just off the road supporting Jack White, performed at Splendour, the unstoppable Lanie Lane is out and about doing a regional tour of Australia. Lanie has had a massive 12 months of touring and promoting her debut album To The Horses, a much-loved album by music fans and media. Her debut album is To The Horses, a collection of 11 songs that duck and weave through a heady mix of early rock â&#x20AC;&#x2122;nâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; roll, blues and rockabilly, serving up fantastic tales of love, lust, heartbreak and the importance of a good guitar â&#x20AC;&#x201C; all delivered by one of the most undeniably distinctive voices and charming characters in Australian music. Lanie is at Bangalow A&I Hall on Saturday.

Having just been announced as finalists in the upcoming QLD Music Awards (Electronic / Dance category), the support for Van Sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s upcoming QLD shows, and with some other BIG news coming very soon as well, youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d think Brisbane five-piece live electronic / dance band Pigeon might take even just a small moment to pause and reflect. But au contraire. The band have just announced a national tour to accompany the release of new single Oh Hebe, their first new material for 2012 and the first hint of what to expect from their forthcoming EP (due out October). They play the Hotel Great Northern on Friday.

After many years earning a reputation as a high-energy performer and adroit multi-instrumentalist both nationally and internationally at festivals small and large, including Glastonbury Festival and Splendour in the Grass, as well as playing onstage and jamming with many of the likes of John Butler, as well as with players from The Beautiful Girls, Blue King Brown, Machine Translations, Tijuana Cartel, Mr Percival and more, Nathan Kaye has long established himself as one of Australiaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s most engaging live acts. This show is no different, except that heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll be experimenting with new tunes with the added power of drummer, Orlando Allen (Deya Dova, Gong). Beach Hotel on Thursday.

MIDDLE CLASS MAKEOVER In just two days Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll be middle class. Our new house is finally ready for occupation. The kids are excited; not only will they get their own bedrooms, Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll actually let their friends into the house. Currently I greet parents of their buddies through a crack in the front door. â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Come back in two weeks, we are almost fabulous!â&#x20AC;&#x2122; Oh just you wait. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll be inviting you in. No, Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll be insisting so I can casually drape myself across my new CaesarStone bench while preparing one of my Donna Hay meals on my six-burner Miele. Oh yes, I am almost an absolute, mindless, consuming-obsessed wanker. As a working-class girl who started out in fibro housing commission complete with punch holes and floating asbestos fibres, Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve finally managed to claw my way up the class ladder. Well, Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve gone up about two rungs. In the end it seems like such a lot of hard work for so little leverage. If Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m to be honest, for the next 30 years Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m the bankâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s bitch. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s quite

a transition on an identity level because Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve always identified as a battler. Nothing has ever come easily. Except husbands and children. I was never one of those kids helped along by trust funds or parents with deep pockets. I have never won money. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve had to work. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve had to shoplift. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve had to perform sexual favours on strangers. (Well maybe I exaggerate â&#x20AC;&#x201C; as if Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d work!) I spent a long time sulking about my lot, but then accepted that itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s probably character building. I was originally five foot three, but I worked so hard I built myself up to massive six foot. Fifteen years ago when things were really tough I lined up at Vinnies for food vouchers, I scavenged through throwout piles for furniture and I was a regular customer at Lifeline. Like many around here I was not just sponsored by Centrelink, I was asked to be the single-mother centrefold in one of their brochures. Yes, Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve had a few character-building experiences. I figure Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve got enough character now to last me into the next millennium. In fact, in order to become middle class and to move into those upper echelons of the class brackets that have so far eluded me Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve had to have some character removal. How do you think Rupert Murdoch made it? He certainly wouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have become a world-class media mogul capable of engineering government decisions if he hadnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t had some work done. So I booked in up the Gold Coast where they run a very efficient surgery that operates on the same principles as cosmetic surgery. There was a huge waiting list, but I finally got in. Firstly Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve had a heart reduction. It was too big. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not possible to accumulate large piles of money with a big heart. It just feels completely unethical and one

feels compelled to give it away or use it for the greater good. The guilt is unbearable. What is the point of being super rich if you feel like an arsehole? Now my heartâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s been reduced I no longer have much concern for the wellbeing of others. Gina Rinehart also swears by her heart reduction, as do many of the worldâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Ăźber rich. Unfortunately Bill Gatesâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s surgery wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t entirely successful. You wouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t believe it but I met Tony Abbott in the waiting room. He told me he was so impressed with the first heart reduction heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d booked in to make his even smaller. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s now the size of a pea. In order to attain and maintain wealth Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve also had my compassion removed, and my integrity. It didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t even hurt. I can barely tell itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s gone. I no longer feel compelled to give spare change to homeless people and I can now eat my dinner while watching TV ads of starving children. I mean, who needs integrity or compassion anyway? Letâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s face it, they are the tonsils of the emotional body; you really can live without them. Politicians have never had them. Integrity removal is challenging surgery because first you have to find it, and itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not always evident exactly where it is. In fact integrity is located in a different place in every person. I found mine in my wallet. Whereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s yours?

s r a t S WITH LILITH

This week’s Sun in clean-up-your-act Virgo wants to get life in order – to take care of deets, ditch excess mess and complete unfinished biz…

E  ARIES: This week fires you up with drive, enthusiasm, and ambition. But when end-of-week full moon throws steamy emotions into the mix, it’s better to retreat and get clarity on intense feelings than engage in confusing confrontations, make decisions if you’re angry or lash out when upset. F  TAURUS: The sun in a fellow earth sign signifies a week of sensual pleasures for you practical creatives, both physically and fiscally. So remember to share the love – helping others even in small ways spreads ripples of goodwill like pebbles dropped in the cosmic pond. G GEMINI: This week won’t be inclined to take any nonsense, including yours – though even if you can’t entirely get your way, you’ll have plenty of fun trying. Tear yourself away from the tube and computer and venture into the great outdoors for mental sport – you could do with the exercise. H  CANCER: This week’s benefits aren’t via great leaps of faith or inspiration, but from taking one step after another – organising resources, assessing assets and working methodically rather than multitasking. Sound dull? Trust me, it’s a welcome relief from the emotionally intense manipulations of Cancer Venus and Scorpio Mars…

backgrounds including newly arrived immigrants from Nigeria and Sudan. Self taught, these young artists had no access to formal training in music or dance prior to working with Shaun Parker. The performance fuses hard-hitting contemporary dance with breakdance, locking and popping, tutting, krumping and jerking – forms of dance found on the streets and schoolyards of western Sydney. The work has been nominated for an 2012 Australian Dance Award and, most recently, received an invitation to tour all 33 teenagers internationally. Monday 1.30pm and 7.30pm at Lismore City Hall. Bookings 1300 066 772 or go to norpa.org.au.

CIRCUS SHOWOFFS! Enjoy live entertainment and fun at Circus Arts August Showcase this Thursday. Circus students will be performing mini-tramp, trapeze, and the rarely seen group bike act where they attempt to get six people on the one bike! There are special guests from Dance Dynamics as well as the ever-popular flying trapeze show. After the show, the flying trapeze will be open for anyone over the age of five to have a swing, plus the jumping castle will be open for all ages. Show: 7pm. Entry $2.

ARTISTS BAIL OUT! The Generator presents an interesting new exhibition featuring the works of three artists, Leah Aketell, Eagle Sword and Sherfay Art. Leah has created an engaging, beautiful body of work using oils,

I LEO: Best not ask people’s opinions this week unless you’re prepared for a forensic dissection. That said, affectionate Venus and sexy Mars promise a sweet week in the land of Lions, the only dissonant note being that sensible spending’s the go for the mo, so no retail sprees please. J VIRGO: If romantic or family matters that have been gathering momentum peak this week, keep your heart open. Don’t angst too hard trying to figure things out, because logic won’t work round end-of-week full moon. But your ruling planet Mercury’s move to Virgo on the weekend will… K LIBRA: There’s just no pleasing some people right now, so instead get stuck into those new health and fitness regimes you’ve been planning, along with a deep-cleansing feng shui of your house and surroundings. And if you’re into it, a purifying spiritual colonic of self-defeating beliefs. L SCORPIO: This week’s astral emphasis is on selfdevelopment; efforts to develop someone else probably won’t meet with noticeable cooperation. With your commander planet Mars in overdrive and Venus in the sign of homebodies, communications aren’t clear – probably a good thing, because if they were you mightn’t like them.

charcoal HONK IF YOU ARE JESUS OPENS AT THE DRILL and mixed HALL MULLUMBIMBY ON FRIDAY 7 SEPT. media to depict ‘the relationship between the natural environment and our unnatural society’. Sherfay Art is an emerging young creative who is partnering ink and watercolour to translate dreamy, faraway scenes pulled from the recesses of her imagination. Eagle Sword- Ash Ward has quietly been honing his skills both in the water and the shaping bay. A well-documented surfer who is as comfortable flying through the air on a short board, as he is, gracefully stepping to the nose of his log. Opening on Friday at The Generator in Byron from 6pm. www.generatorbyronbay.com.

JESUS COMES TO MULLUM

When Mullumbimby Drill Hall Theatre Company Artistic Director Mike Russo, along with other members of the company, saw the premiere of Honk If You Are Jesus at the 2006 Adelaide Arts Festival they were determined to stage it in Mullumbimby one day, despite the difficulties in presenting what was DINNER then a technically complex work VYNHUPJcMYLZOcMYLLYHUNL of art.

ÄZOVM[OLKH`

MS AGITTARIUS: This week really supports organisation and structure. Which needn’t dampen your spirits, because there’s plenty of valuable headway to be made nurturing professional relationships, putting out feelers and sharing ideas about developing timesaving, energy-efficient, superior and more satisfying ways of operating. N  CAPRICORN: If anything in your life needs realistic adjustments, this pragmatic week makes them. While you goaty folk definitely like things your own way, don’t push it – there’s a lesson in letting others assist. Even reaching out and asking for help, which isn’t something you do easily. O  AQUARIUS: Unwisely selected words can hurt someone this week, especially if heard via a third person. Friday’s intuitive blue moon opens a portal of possibilities into your future, and if your response is to address the mess by streamlining and downsizing, then the force is with you. P PISCES: This week’s star scenario tickles your sensual pheromones, with end-of-week Pisces blue moon about figuring out how you can improve life by making your small portion of it a simpler, more harmonious and joyful place. Then weekend Aries moon makes sure you actually get started…

Extremely likeable and down to earth though this film is, it is just a wee bit of a worry for any movie when the success or failure of its scene of high fluorescence is dependent upon the pop song that is played to inform the moment. Annie Lennox’s Why? nails the emotional weight of Kay (Meryl Streep) and Arnold’s (Tommy Lee Jones) inevitable rapprochement, but without it this viewer might have been stranded with a heavy sense of ‘so what?’ Arnold, an Omaha tax consultant, and Kay, a shop assistant, are emptynesters. He is oblivious to the doldrums in which their marriage of thirty-one years is floundering, but she is only too aware of it. Desperate for change, Kay books a week of intensive counselling

with Dr Feld (Steve Carell), an east coast relationships expert and, despite Arnold’s bahhumbugging, they fly to Maine to (Kay hopes) resuscitate their life together. Streep, incapable it seems of anything less than excellence, wins you over in Kay’s very first, excruciating scene of rejection, Jones manages to lift Arnold out of the stereotype of insensitive male that may have prevailed, while Carell plays his part with perfect restraint. In the pastel-coloured quaintness of the seaside toy-town, the story floats along a little too comfortably, wanting more laughs to be considered a rom-com – the one decent gag is set-up early and delightfully realised at the close – or an unseen, unsettling turning point to shift it into dramatic waters. Few of us, especially if watching

with a partner, will not have cause to squirm occasionally, but the intended provocativeness of the subject matter doesn’t push the envelope nearly as far as it might have. Writer Vanessa Taylor (this is her first feature after numerous TV credits) errs on the side of politeness and, in the wash-up, there is the strangest sense that the couple’s marriage was saved only when, back home alone, with Dr Feld’s prescriptions behind them, they saw clearly that it was on the verge of collapse. Warm, truthful and confiding. ~ John Campbell

Total Recall I honestly don’t know how I sat through this, so brainshatteringly awful is it. Jean-Luc Godard famously remarked that all you need to make a movie is a gun and a girl. The great film-noir director’s flippancy has since become the credo of Hollywood’s major studios as they fall over each other in throwing squillions of dollars at catering to and thus having their ridiculously inflated budgets sustained by the dominant demographic of the intellectually stunted man-boy. This particular abomination has not one but two girls, Jessica Biel and Kate Beckinsale (whose production-line beauty is so perfectly bland that I am never able to distinguish her from the last airbrushed head I saw grinning back at me from the glossy mag rack at the checkout), and guns in the countless plural. The story is set at the post-apocalyptic end of this century. Two population centres survive, Britain and its colony (Oz – plus a change!). Britain is run by a cruel tyrant, natch, while in the colony there is a resistance movement that is led by Bill Nighy, whom we last saw falling in love with Judi Dench in the enchanted pink city of Jaipur. The hero, Colin Farrell, has had his head messed with by the corporation, thus allowing for the writers to embark on the now mandatory unfathomable plotting that encourages those who would follow it to believe they are geniuses (let’s call it the Inception wank). He can’t work out whether he’s Arthur or Martha, but what he does know is that everybody – soldiers and robots (known cutely as ‘synthetics’) – is out to get him. His pursuers are all armed with

A Royal Affair Here’s one for a more mature audience to get its teeth into. Power and politics, sex and betrayal, and the ever-recurring clash between intractable conservatism and a radical new way of thinking whose time has come – this meticulously constructed and uncomplicated Danish costume drama has it all. The story is told in the form of a memoir that the banished Queen Caroline Mathilde (Alicia Vikander) is writing to her two estranged children in 1775. As an English princess, she had been shunted off to Copenhagen to mate with King Christian VII (Mikkel Følsgaard) in an arranged marriage. Her high expectations are blighted when Christian turns out to be a whoring, borderline raving loony. After providing him with a male heir, she resigns herself to a chaste life of courtly despair. Outside the palace gates, the ancien régime that has prevailed for so long in the rest of Europe is in the throes of upheaval as the Enlightenment gathers its unstoppable momentum. Caroline becomes aware of the movement when Christian employs the German free-thinker Johann Struensee (Mads Mikkelsen) as his personal physician. The young queen, her conscience stirred by the contraband volume of Rousseau that she has been given, takes Struensee as her lover – their erotically charged ballroom scene is a classic of its type. Meanwhile, the doctor is forging an influential and potentially dangerous friendship with Christian, much to the chagrin of the curmudgeonly royal councillors and fearsome dowager queen.

Lavish production values ensure that sets and wardrobe create the period, but the movie’s strongest element is the character-driven script. In the three central roles, Vikander, Mikkelsen and Følsgaard give subtly nuanced performances – the idealistic doctor falls victim to megalomania, Christian unexpectedly earns genuine compassion – and (this is so often

Television Guide 1. Big it up for the ABC which is broadcasting the Paralympics from London â&#x20AC;&#x201C; without ad breaks! There is coverage throughout the day from Wednesday onwards on ABC2 and highlights on ABC1 at 6pm. If youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve seen Britainâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Channel 4 promo â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Superhumansâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;, youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll know just how amazing these athletes are, and ABC1 has been running vignettes of some of the Oz competitors. See more at www.london2012.com/paralympics. 2. Among the better crime thrillers this week is The Client (Gem, Sunday, 8.30pm), starring Susan Sarandon and Tommy Lee Jones and based on a best-selling John Grisham novel. Sarandon was nominated for the best actress Oscar in her role as a recoveringalcoholic lawyer hired to help out a kid who has unwittingly drawn the focus of the Mob. The interaction between the boy (played by Brad Renfro) and Sarandon is excellent. Read more about the author (a former lawyer) at www.jgrisham.com.

Food styling

food-styling job for books, mainly Murdoch. These days she keeps her hand in but is more focused on an SCU course in Media. (â&#x20AC;&#x2122;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m trying to broaden my skill base, get my brain firing in different ways. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s my slap of cold water!â&#x20AC;&#x2122;)

â&#x20AC;&#x2122;When I started doing food, everything had to be fully in focus,â&#x20AC;&#x2122; she replies. â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;The style was to have lots of things in the shot â&#x20AC;&#x201C; they were busyâ&#x20AC;Ś It took ages to set up the shots. Now thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a looseness â&#x20AC;&#x201C; the focus is on the food and your eyes are no longer drawn to the background. You want to evoke the feeling of making a dish trigger a reaction in a person â&#x20AC;&#x201C; youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re trying to switch on something unconscious.â&#x20AC;&#x2122; Sarah says that her least favourite foods to work with are fish (â&#x20AC;&#x2122;Fish is tricky â&#x20AC;&#x201C; a whole fish drives me mad â&#x20AC;&#x201C; itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s hard to make people want to eat it!â&#x20AC;&#x2122;) and curries (â&#x20AC;&#x2122;I did an Indian book and they did my head in â&#x20AC;&#x201C; all that brown, unidentifiable stuff!â&#x20AC;&#x2122;) Her favourites are cakes (â&#x20AC;&#x2122;Things with structure; thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s an innate prettinessâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;) and salads (â&#x20AC;&#x2122;Theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re quite dynamicâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;). What food styling is about today, she says, is creating a mood. â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;It becomes more intimateâ&#x20AC;Ś the food draws you in. It engages you more.â&#x20AC;&#x2122;

In short, the role of the food stylist is to make the food look attractive in the finished photograph. Visual know-how and the ability to translate the perception of taste, aroma and appeal that one gets from an actual dish to a two-dimensional photograph are the requirements. â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re responsible for the visual outcome, for creating something beautiful,â&#x20AC;&#x2122; Sarah says. â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;You can do something subtle and it will suddenly sing.â&#x20AC;&#x2122;

BYRON BAY CONTINUED

Like food photography, about which I have spoken in a previous column, food styling has made tremendous leaps over the past few decades â&#x20AC;&#x201C;

behind every food photographer is, anyway, a food stylist. In a local cafe I sit opposite Bangalowbased Sarah de Nardi, who has been in the business now for about fifteen years. Despite studying drawing and jewellery at Sydneyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s College of Fine Arts, she knew her passion lay in cooking and food. She started out in magazines initially styling interiors before moving into the food arena, ultimately ending up in books. â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;I did books for quite a while,â&#x20AC;&#x2122; she tells me, â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;then Pacific Magazines acquired Family Circle and they contacted me to ask me to be food editorâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;.

Luscious Foods aim to provide the freshest, first class quality handmade food for your event. Whether your function is a cocktail party, wedding, conference, picnic or intimate, Luscious is here to help create delicious menus to suit your tastes and budget.

SUPPLIERS

In my battered old book called Food in Vogue thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a full-colour plate to accompany a page of coq au vin recipes. Taken by someone called Ray Williams in 1962, it seems surprisingly ahead of its times in its sensuality and its glowing, rustic ambers: a whole roast chicken on a platter surrounded by tiny tomatoes, potatoes, button mushrooms and lardons, placed on a hessian cloth. In the background, polished wooden drawers are half-open to reveal bunches of fresh thyme, parsley, rosemary and cinnamon quills; thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a mortar and pestle and several bottles of vintage French wines. Most of the other food photos are, however, reminiscent of Anna Zahalkaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s surreal and sterile sets of food as food, not mood â&#x20AC;&#x201C; and as for my edition of Thai Cuisine by Mogens Bay Esbensen, published in 1986, the less said about the garish, ghastly colour plates the better!

PRAYER TO ST JUDE, PATRON SAINT OF THE HOPELESS Holy Saint Jude, Apostle and Martyr, great in virtue and rich in miracles, near kinsman of Jesus Christ, faithful intercessor of all who invoke your special patronage in time of need. To you I have recourse from the depths of my heart and humbly beg to whom God has given such great power to come to my assistance. Help me in my present and urgent petition. In return I promise to make your name known and cause you to be invoked. Saint Jude pray for me and all those who invoke your aid. Amen.

Mullum joins world focus on education about Monsanto Byron Shire Chemical Free Landcare Group will join the international community for ‘World Focus on educating people on Monsanto and its poisonous legacy, from GMOs and cross-contamination to its herbicide and pesticide contamination’. According to organisers, ‘The international community will perform this event on the week beginning September 17. However in the biggest little town of Australia we will open our event on August 31, with Mullum Flicks featuring on our behalf the film The World According to Monsanto (USA), at the Drill Hall Theatre.

independent scientists, filmmakers and journalists from many different countries have a different opinion and are speaking up. ‘Our group, BSCL, is particularly concerned that ignorance of the effects of glyphosate products is having a devastating impact on the health of our children and on environmental health. ‘It is important to state that the BSCFL actions, in promoting awareness regarding cosmetic pesticides, are not a personal attack on any individual using it. Our concerns are based on scientific research saying that it is not safe for humans. ‘Other government agencies in Australia and overseas are already on the move to a more sustainable, no-chemical approach towards maintenance of public lands.

Byron U12s premiership bound Moonshiners get the job done Dean Trevaskis

Despite being out of semi contention the Mullumbimby Moonshiners are finishing season 2012 with plenty of momentum. On Saturday the Shiners chalked up win number four against an understrength Evans River Killer Whales. The fans at Moonshiner Stadium Brunswick Heads turned up for a day out and were not disappointed. Mullum flew the boxes and gained the early ascendency with field position on the back of a dominant forward pack. Pilfering ‘Pez’ Perry was on a ball stripping spree and big Lachlan Stubbings back from injury was his partner in crime counter rucking the under siege Evans forwards. Stubbs Wait. Wait. Wait. Goal! Tense seconds pass as players look to the posts to see if the ball, launched regained his lead as Mullum’s from the boot of Magpies Under 12 half forward flanker Fergus Biggin-Johnston, makes its way leading try scorer for the seabetween the tall white sentinels of score-dom. The Byron team beat the Ballina Bombers 6-8-44 son on the back of some clean to 4-2-26. The Maggies will rest next week when Ballina play Tweed Coast for the chance to meet hands and a trademark freight Byron in the premiership game on September 9. Photo Tree Faerie. train run. Evans knuckled

down to the task and kept an at times wasteful Shiners attack at bay. The young blokes were lining up to get their name on the board, but as is often the case impatience can cost you. Evans struck back with a converted try themselves to have the game square at half time. Second rower Troy Irwin got the Shiners refocused after the break with his head-down-arse -up approach. He showed the young blokes how it was done with a cracking try. Stubbs slotted the conversion. Matt Perry twice crossed the money line only to be denied by the man in the rainbow stripes. Winger Simon Hutton must have saved fifteen points at least with his relentless kamikaze attacks on the Killer Whales’ big number twelve. On the opposite wing Brendan Black had the crowd roaring with a sixty-metre run and chip that Evans managed to snuff out on the last line of defence.

But they couldn’t hold out the irrepressible Lachlan Stubbings for his second of the day to give Mullum a commanding fourteen-point lead. Dashing Dion Vogt was again excellent and is ticking all the right boxes in the pivotal full back role. A late send-off gifted Evans a pick-and-drive try with ten to go but it wasn’t enough to stop the Shiners running out deserved victors 21–2 against the gutsy and valiant Killer Whales. For Mullum Troy Irwin got the three votes with Matt Perry and Simon Hutton close behind. The Shiners got the chance to put their feet up last weekend. Next Saturday the Shiners play their grand finale to season 2012 against the Murwillumbah Bananas. If his match is anything like recent clashes between the two it promises to be fiery and spiteful.

The Nick Shand trophy resides in a dusty vault at the end of a booby-trapped corridor in the Echo office in Mullumbimby, a receptacle, some say, for Simon’s famed collection of historically significant paper clips. Which team gets to fill the fabled goblet with decent red wine and lead the traditional

toast at the end of the season is still far from clear as the closest Shand series ever gets close to the pointy end. Sunday’s action featured the Suffolk Swingers, the team that has a future as a boy band if they ever give up cricket, and the Geckos, love child of a corporate entity nurtured in the fertile fields of Saint Seymour’s address book.

Gold and silver girl Local runner Mackenzey Ormiston won a silver medal in the individual national crosscountry event in Adelaide over the weekend. Mackenzey, a student at Ocean Shores Public School, was beaten in a photo finish. She also received the gold medals as part of the NSW teams event and in the team relay.

Pete Wynne-Moylan won the toss for the Geckos and with Lomath Oval glowing like an oil painting couldn’t wait to get out there on the famous red-gold velcro-textured turf, and chose to field. Barney suffered every batsman’s nightmare when he tested James’s arm on a quick single, the platinum duck, run out without facing a ball. Hughsey biffed a couple through the legside and looked well set but fell to the mongoose-like skills of Ali (2–17), who claimed another prize scalp. The Geckos had the Swingers off their hinges when James (2–8) crashed the ball into Luke’s stumps and it was up to the feisty Chi and Carl to rebuild the innings like a footballer’s wife’s boob job. They saw the Suffolk team to drinks at 3–67. After the break the Geckos went rabid.

Early sucsess for saint Seymour of the loaf soon became a rout as canny skipper Mr Wynne-Moylan unleashed Dan (3–5), who had been held back like a floating ace in the deck. Chi made a faultless 30 but ran out of partners as only Lionel could hang around long enough to trouble the scorers, Suffolk shoved off the park for 111. The Geckos’ openers Adeha and Pete Mortimore saw off the new ball and soon had big chunks falling off the target, like the pothole gremlins in Goonengerry. Rod (2–18) removed Pete but Adeha (31 n/o) steered the Geckos to the total unerringly, leaving Dan and Cliff to bring home the spoils with five overs to spare. Next, Main Arm are faced with the task of outscoring the Byron Full-Tossers to have any chance of playing in the finals.

Byron Shire Buyers Agent Q&A by Hans Lovejoy

Jeremy Bennett Jeremy Bennett is the youngest real estate principal in Byron Bay and, along with Graham Dunn and Vicky Innes, started Byron Bay Property Sales more than four years ago.

The business has extended and built up over the years and also operates Byron Bay Luxury Homes holiday destinations and Byron Bay Commercial management and sales. The Byron Bay Property Sales team is made up of real  estate agents Stuart Aitken and Heidi Last, Donna Gibbs sales administrator, holiday managers Shelley Copeland and Kelly Powell, commercial manager Kath Vaubell, permanent rental manager Jill Wehner and assistant Kirsty Harland, creative director Chris Galkowski and office administration manager Kylie Robertson. As a local independent and non-franchise office, they have done exceptionally well in Byron, with many recent highprofile sales such as the Becton site for $18.5M and a recent $9m Wategos sale. Jeremy grew up in Byron Bay and says he was married to his gorgeous wife on the beach at Wategos and both his two children were born here.

I understand you grew up here. What are the major changes you have seen? New faces, new styles, new flavours and maybe even a few more potholes! I can remember putting my surfboard under a mate’s house on Lawson Street that is now an arcade… and I used to enjoy watching the Oleander Parade go through town. What drew you to real estate? Family and friends were all in Byron and I was keen to have a career in something that I could build for myself and my family and could keep me here. What future prospects do you see Byron having – ie do you see it changing much in the coming years, and how? It will change for sure as

different influences flow into the town. It’s a very creative place that inspires people so who knows what will be on the horizon.  Maybe with increasing technology and the internet it will keep more people here rather than forcing them to leave to find work. We can be very thankful the ocean, national parks and rolling hills are our backdrop and that will hopefully remained unchanged. I understand your office recently sold an expensive property – $9m for a Wategos

property. Is this an upward trend you are seeing or more one off in that price range? I think the person who owns the house is extremely fortunate, and I wouldn’t mind a property like that. There will always be people who recognise the value of property in Byron Bay (not just Wategos) and are prepared to offer the amount it takes to own one of these magnificent properties. I know Jan Barham disagrees but that’s her opinion.  What are the strengths and weaknesses of working for

an independent real estate office? Owning an independent real estate office in Byron Bay is a privilege. We are three local owners who live and work in Byron Bay and intend to do so for as long as we can.  It is very much a service industry and Graham, Vicky and I welcome anyone to our office and look forward to helping out where we can. We are fortune to have made friends of many of

our clients over the years and couldn’t ask for much more. Strengths are serviceorientated, local and flexible, and you enjoy coming to work. You are the face and idea of the business. Weaknesses are you have to be your own motivation and drive. Having two brilliant business partners and amazing people to work with helps. Q Next week The Echo will

profile another Byron Shirerealtor.

Backlash had to send the Wafflemeter in for repair after the last lot of rhetoric from council candidates and their supporters landed in the in-tray. This has certainly been the local election most inclined to the American style of pre-processed bullshit served up steaming hot to the unwary punter, and thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s still 11 sleeps to go! Hopefully youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll get a few straight answers out of the meet-the-candidates gigs (council-abolitionist Jack Sugarman doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t think so). We hope to bring you the group profiles in the last week before September 8 in the paper Echo, and in the meantime those with internet access can check the changing tide at www.echonetdaily.net.au. As Mungo notes in his online article, â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;The more comprehensive and effective alternative [in choosing desired councillors] is marking squares â&#x20AC;&#x153;below the lineâ&#x20AC;? in order of preference for individual candidates. You can stop after nominating the number required to fill the council but it is far better to go the whole way and fill in every square. This may be time consuming, but it allows you to cherry-pick individuals from different groups and, more importantly, to leave out the ones you really hate.â&#x20AC;&#x2122; In preparation for the climactic final week weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve had our Wafflemeter upgraded to cope with 2,ooo motherhood statements per minute.

QQQQ

â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;In our time it is broadly true that political writing is bad writingâ&#x20AC;Ś Orthodoxy, of whatever colour, seems to demand a lifeless, imitative style. The political dialects to be found in pamphlets, leading articles, manifestos, white papers and the speeches of undersecretaries do, of course, vary from party to party, but they are all alike in that one almost never finds in them a fresh, vivid, homemade turn of speech. When one watches some tired hack on the platform mechanically repeating the familiar phrasesâ&#x20AC;Ś one often has a curious feeling that one is not watching a live human being but some kind of dummy: a feeling which suddenly becomes stronger at moments when the light catches the speakerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s spectacles and turns them into blank discs which seem to have no eyes behind them. And this is not altogether fanciful. A speaker who uses that kind of phraseology has gone some distance toward turning himself into a machine. The appropriate noises are coming out of his larynx, but his brain is not involved as it would be if he were choosing his words for himself.â&#x20AC;&#x2122; â&#x20AC;&#x201C; George Orwell (1903â&#x20AC;&#x201C;1950) Q Responsibility for election
