Taxpayers may foot the bill for unpaid wages after beleaguered newspaper publishing company Evans Publishing became insolvent on November 8. But staff are still employed – Evans Publishing now trades as Independent Publishing Australia (IPA) and retains a largely familiar board, according to Echo sources. IPA publishes seven newspapers in regional and coastal areas of Qld and NSW, including the Tweed Coast Weekly. A spokesperson from the Department of Education, Employment and Workplace Relations (DEEWR) told The Echo, ‘the department has received a number of claim forms from employees of Evans Publishing and we’re also aware of the circumstances in regard to Independent Publishing Australia.’ They added that ‘no assistance has been paid as the claims are still being assessed.’ Creditors, including the Australian Tax Office (ATO), were apparently left footing the bill for $2.8 million after liquidation on November 8. It’s understood that liquidators RMG Partners sold the company’s titles to a consortium of previous owners plus businessman Scott Williams of Armidale. According to The Echo’s sources, Independent Publishing Australia is 51 per cent controlled by Mr Williams while wife of former Evans Publishing director, Alison Evans, holds 49 per cent (under Evans Family Investments). The restructure – which appears completely legal – also comes after Evans Publishing entered voluntary administration in September last year, owing substantial debts to creditors and the Australian Tax Office. Then-director Brad Evans emerged from the administration after win-

ning creditors’ support for a Deed of Company Arrangement (DOCA) that would have seen Evans pay unsecured creditors including the ATO less than 13 cents on each dollar owed. That forecast appears to have vanished altogether following the company’s liquidation. ASIC records show the company had just $649 in the bank on October 17, 2012 after the administrator’s fees and expenses of more than $200,000 were paid.

Entered voluntary admin According to the Voluntary Administrators’ report from September 6 last year, when creditors convened to consider the company’s future, a key feature of the DOCA that was to govern the company’s affairs included Williams taking over as controlling shareholder and chief financial officer. This was later amended to Williams becoming chief executive officer of Evans Publishing. However, according to Echo sources, Williams held the CEO role for just five months before relinquishing the company’s management back to Brad Evans, who simultaneously resumed his role as the company’s director. It’s not known what role IPA plays in the management of the newspapers bought by IPA.

No comment None of the officials involved in the Evans insolvencies – IPA, the ATO, ASIC or the liquidator – would speak to The Echo about their involvement in the company’s collapse or its subsequent sale back to Williams and Evans. It’s understood IPA has offered more than $290,000 for the titles to be largely paid in deferred instalments. The Echo’s source added that the ATO has now lodged another proof of debt with RMG liquidators.

Ocean Shores resident Liam Heyenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s graduation short film Rain has won the Griffith Film Schoolâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s best film and the audience choice awards. But despite the title, rain was something the young filmmaker was hoping to avoid while shooting on location in outback QLD. Liam, who has just finished a bachelor of film and screen media production, says that capturing a drought-ridden landscape during a lush July in 2012 in Thargomindah, a town that has suffered terribly from drought over the years, was a challenge.

â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;The location would have been perfect about five years agoâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;, says Liam. â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;But because of all the rain they have had â&#x20AC;&#x201C; which they are loving â&#x20AC;&#x201C; the site was all green. So a lot of produc-

their concerns about replacing the overnight doctor were unable to be addressed, including public safety, issues with nursesâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; legal responsibility, connectivity of the system and ambulance response times. Ms Boyle said nurses were not against telehealth, which was a great addition to medical services, but opposed having to operate the video-link system without a doctor. She said staff at other hospi-

tals using the system told them it was never meant to replace a doctor. â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;We just couldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t agree on ethical grounds as it would have put patients and ourselves in a dangerous position. It was just not an acceptable level of care,â&#x20AC;&#x2122; she said. But Mr Crawford is unrepentant, telling ABC North Coast last week that Telehealth technology was already used to connect doctors in several local hospitals and in time nurses

tion design and visual effects went into making the landscape look dry and desolate.â&#x20AC;&#x2122; The sci-fi-drama depicts a future where rain is a thing of the past. An old man and a

young boy struggle to survive in a world devoid of rain, where there is no water left on earth. By day they harvest what water they can from the barren landscape and by night they attempt to keep their hope kindled. Liam says, â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;The role of producer is the direction I am heading in. [Director] Henry Boffin and I had worked on about six previous projects together during the course. â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;He wrote the script and I had a read and thought it was really good, so we decided to work on it together.â&#x20AC;&#x2122; At a cost of about $18,000, the film was close to a year in the making.

definition of a â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;tourist facilityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; and the wider issue of holiday letting on December 7. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s being brought against an alleged schoolies operator by Byron Shire Council. Councilâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s governance manager Ralph James told The Echo, â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;It was considered that the best approach was to â&#x20AC;&#x153;testâ&#x20AC;? the issue

â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;This would result in a precedent one way or the other. â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;While it is unknown how long it may take to reach a conclusion on this case, once it is completed, Council will consider taking action against other known properties that do not have consent to operate as a tourist facility,â&#x20AC;&#x2122; he said.

would feel more confident with the new technology. Mr Crawford told The Echo, â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Mullum is not ready at the moment to do it on a doctorto-nurses basis. As has previously been said, it is up to the nurses, if they feel ready to do it in the future. However, that time is unlikely to come before the development of the Byron Shire Central Hospital, which will change the situation as the patient volumes at night will then be higher.,â&#x20AC;&#x2122; said. Ms Boyle said she had mixed feelings of relief and apprehension as to what the future held for the hospital, as the move to replace the overnight doctor was made because of budget blowouts and she fears further budget cuts could impact on hospital services. NSWNA organiser Nola Scilinato told The Echo, â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;branch members are happy, but were always aware that if this proposal didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t go ahead, the Local Health District would look for cutsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;. Save Mullumbimby Hospi-

tal steering committeeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Frank Lynch said the community was â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;always strongly opposed to the prospect of losing the night doctor from the emergency department so there is a sense of relief that common sense prevailedâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;. â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;The nurses are to be thanked for their resolute stand against the removal of the night doctor. This was the critical factor in defeating the proposal. The nursesâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; principal concern was patient safety especially with the likelihood of many more transfers to Tweed Base Hospital. â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;The proposal provoked widespread angst not only locally but also in many rural areas because it was seen as a test case for smaller country hospitals. â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;It has generated a number of heated exchanges in state and federal parliament because of this â&#x20AC;&#x153;test-caseâ&#x20AC;? status and because it was seen as a â&#x20AC;&#x153;cost-cuttingâ&#x20AC;? measure without proper risk assessment having been done.â&#x20AC;&#x2122; Q Editorial page 12

After thirty-three years of volunteer work for Feros Care in both Byron and Bangalow, Shirley Nelson was not only awarded the HESTA Aged & Community Services Australia’s Volunteer Award, Asbestos remediation work at she got to cut the Feros Village birthday cake.

The vision that George Feros dreamed of was celebrated last Thursday when Feros Village Bangalow residents, families and locals gathered for a cocktail luncheon. It was to mark the 15th year as part of the Bangalow community. The 64-bed residential site – a high-care village – began operating in November 1997, follow-

ing the opening of the low-care Feros Village in Byron Bay in 1990. Feros Care’s CEO Jennene Buckley said lots of hard work by staff, volunteers and the Feros Board has gone into creating a thriving and welcoming home. ‘Over the past 15 years the village has been home to more than 730 seniors who were born and bred in the local area, or have come from as far as Sydney and Melbourne to be

MP Hazzard, officials to meet north coast residents over CSG concerns CSG-Free campaigners are urging concerned public to attend a meeting with minister for planning and infrastructure, Brad Hazzard, on December 5 from 10am at the Lismore City Hall. Mr Hazzard and five other senior directors and advisers to the NSW government have been invited by Nationals member for Lismore, Thomas George, who says the forum aims to answer questions raised by the community over its strategic regional land use policy. The Liberal/National’s controversial plan to allow mining in regional NSW continues to spark public protests and meetings throughout the state. According to www.planning.

nsw.gov.au, the policy ‘identifies and protects more than two million hectares of strategic agricultural land, protects valuable water resources and provides greater certainty for companies wanting to invest in mining and coal-seam gas projects in regional NSW.’

Hazzard’s entourage Mr Hazzard’s entourage includes Brad Mullard (executive director, mineral resources), Dr Regina Fogarty (director, office of sustainable agriculture and food security), Rob O’Neill (director, water policy and planning, Office of Water), Dan Keary (director, strategic regional policy, Department of Planning and Infrastructure),

Greg Yeates (team leader, regional planning, Department of Planning and Infrastructure). Co-ordinator of Lock the Gate northern rivers, Boudicca Cerese, is calling on everyone concerned with mining in the region to attend. ‘This is our chance to tell the NSW government that we do not want our region turned into gasfields… ‘If you are on a Gasfield-Free road, bring a copy of your declaration scroll. ‘Bring banners/gasfield-free road signs/placards. ‘Phone/text everyone you know inviting them to come along.

What other newspapers say… Eve Jeffery asks northern NSW newspaper editors and journalists their take on CSG

Port Macquarie’s Camden Haven Courier (Fairfax) Managing editor Kate Dwyer says that CSG is a medium issue in the area. ‘Our area is not immediately being targeted by CSG companies’, says Kate. ‘There is, although, a general feeling in the community of remaining highly vigilant of any changes in this perceived “threat”. ‘We have a  sand-and-gravel mine in our region only and the community feels these are okay but should not be expanded.’ Kate says that in 2008, International Power Australia wanted to build a diesel-fuelled peaking-powerplant in the region. ‘The issue saw the largest community response I’ve ever seen here. Around 600 people turned up to the first community meeting about the issue. ‘The community campaign against the plan was well-organised and presented intelligent argument against the plan due to the real concern about the environmental and health impacts the plant would create. The local Port MacquarieHastings Council acted and refused to sell the parcel of land to the power company.’

Goondiwindi Argus (Fairfax) Editor Ian Jones says that in general, CSG is seen as something as an unknown. ‘While most of the CSG impact is in the Surat Basin – we’re on the edge – inroads, exploration and wells, are beginning to become part of the landscape.’ Ian says the local council is talking to those where growth has been greater to learn from their experiences and mistakes,

and to discover what impacts there have been socially, on infrastructure and on the environment. ‘CSG is an important issue and it goes hand-in-hand with most rural communities similar to us: how do we ensure we’re still here and thriving in 50 years’ time? It wants to be attractive to younger people a) to keep them in Goondiwindi, b) to attract young families. ‘For that, it has to ensure there are jobs and it has to have recreational and transport facilities which make Goondiwindi a viable option to the cities. ‘For that to happen we have to somehow keep our traditional industries, such as farming, prospering (or at least keeping their heads above the dust), attract new businesses, such as new health facilities, and most importantly of all, foster our core, traditional values: good old-fashioned values where community is your family. ‘It only happens in the bush and, possibly, that great mecca of the free-thinking, Byron.’ Ian says that if you asked certain landholders about CSG they’d be passionate about their response. But at the present, it’s just far enough away to be off the general public radar. ‘It wouldn’t take much for that to change though.’

opposed to misinformation. ‘Santos have inherited problems from previous companies, but they are very community minded and try to do the best for everyone. They aren’t being listened to. They are up against entrenched opposition that is not necessarily founded in anything.’ Ian says that environment concerns are an issue in the town, but they are not all of the problems faced locally. ‘We’ve gone through ten years of drought. We are looking at our future economy and wellbeing.’

Q Moree is approx

500km west of Byron Bay

Warwick Daily News (APN) Editor Jeremy Sollars says that is hasn’t been a huge issue on the pages of the News. ‘This was more of an issue for us 18 months ago. There has been some concern in the area but council’s view and my view is: can we leverage any economic value out of it while at the same time protecting highquality farmland? ‘I have concerns about the water table and the effect on high-quality cropping land.’

The Moree Champion (Fairfax)

There have been quite a few stories in the Moree Champion according to journalist Emily Wilson. She says the local council put a moratorium in place halting exploration earlier this year. ‘There have also been a few letter to the editor, but we have other big issues including skills Q Narrabri is approx 500km shortage, especially when we west of Coffs Harbour come into the cotton harvest season. People are struggling The Koori Mail to find workers.’

Journalist Darren Coyne says that the publication has not done a lot of stories on CSG mining. ‘We are a national publication [based in Lismore] and the area where CSG is an issue at the moment is just a small area compared to the rest of the country, but generally, the Aboriginal people we speak to are against it. Certainly the Arakwal and the Githabul are.’ Darren says that social issues are the more likely content of the Mail’s pages. ‘The overrepresentation of Aboriginal Q Goondiwindi is approx people in the criminal justice 500km west of Byron Bay system and general discrimination are the biggest issues for The Narrabri Courier us, as is constitutional recognition.

Logging proposed for local national parks Chris Dobney

Parts of Whian Whian, Wollumbin and Bungawalbin state conservation areas, together with a swag of national parks including Goonengerry, Nightcap and Wollumbin would be revoked or reopened to logging if the stateâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s peak forest industry body gets its way. The submission, which calls for removal of protection of 43 national parks, state conservation areas and nature reserves, was made in September but has only now been discovered as the negotiations have been conducted under the cloak of

Bruns public access decision waits on MP Page Luis Feliu

Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s been revealed that new licensing conditions guaranteeing public access to encroached public land by Brunswick Headsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; three state-run Crown reserve caravan parks are yet to be approved by local government minister Don Page. It comes after residents recently took direct action to re-open public access to the public boat ramp at Riverside Crescent in Ferry Reserve; barricades were removed and dumped at the front of the Council Chambers in Mullumbimby last week in protest. Byron Shire Councilâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s acting general manager, Phil Holloway, told The Echo the section of Riverside Crescent, which runs through the middle of the Ferry Reserve, was compulsorily acquired by the state government and gazetted in May this year. Mr Holloway said that as a result, the former public road now forms part of the reserve and is managed by the North Coast Accommodation Trust

(NCAT) as the reserve trust manager. NCAT administrator Jim Bolger recently told The Echo the road was closed because it was now part of the Ferry Reserve Caravan Park grounds, but Mr Holloway said Council was told it was closed â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;to stop cars driving through at 60km/hâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;.

Could end up in court: MP Page

is the point. Council resolved specifically that the licence would not include the road area. It has now been blockaded, which means that people cannot access the foreshore. That is the concern.â&#x20AC;&#x2122; Mr Page said Council and Crown Lands â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;should have further discussions and negotiations because we do not want this to end up in court, which is a real possibilityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;. Before last yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s state election, which swept Mr Page into power, he campaigned on the back of support for access to public land, saying he â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;cannot support any measure that denies public access to our public foreshores.â&#x20AC;&#x2122; He also said during the election campaign, â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Nor can I support the use of the stateâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s compulsory-acquisition powers to acquire Council-owned land to facilitate inappropriate development that is opposed by the Council and the community.â&#x20AC;&#x2122;

Local government minister and Ballina MP Don Page told parliament recently the issue could end up in court. Under questioning from former Byron mayor, MLC Jan Barham, Mr Page said he had referred Councilâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s application for conditions of approval for the licences of the three caravan parks to the Division of Local Government. Mr Page said Council was â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;seeking to impose additional conditionsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; and the division was assessing those. Q This story is shortened from Ms Barham said, â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;the Crown has now taken the area and used it without approval. That Go to echonetdaily.net.au

Mullum CSG meeting resolves to survey streets Staff reporters

More than 300 people packed the Byron Shire Council Chambers at Mullumbimby last Thursday night to hear about plans for coal-seam gas prospecting in the region. Local Aboriginal community members spoke against the NSW Aboriginal Land

Councilâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s decision to apply for a special prospecting permit covering the area, which includes most of Mullumbimby town and the area to the west. A separate Petroleum Exploration Licence has already been approved for the area east of the town to the coast. As expected, the meeting voted overwhelmingly to under-

take the process of street surveys to declare the town a CSG-free community. A meeting to undertake the same process in Federal and Goonengerry will be held at Goonengerry School Tuesday December 4 at 7pm. Q This story is shortened from

Saffin speaks out against CSG in parliament  Chris Dobney

Lock the Gate Northern Rivers (LTG-NR) congratulated federal Page MP Janelle Saffin for her comments in parliament last week about the dangers of coal-seam gas mining (CSG). Ms Saffin took the opportunity last Monday evening to address parliament about the issue, focusing largely on the problems associated with produced water and the likely damage to life-giving aquifers. www.echo.net.au

In the short five-minute speech she also reiterated her demands for a moratorium over CSG exploration and exploitation until a federal government body, the Independent Expert Scientific Committee on CSG and Large Coal Mining Developments, is able to make an assessment of the situation. The MP told parliament that as far back as 2010, the National Water Commission produced a document titled â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;The coalseam gas and water challengeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;

that raised some frightening issues about the industry. She said the report stated, â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;extracting large volumes of low-quality water will impact on connected surface and groundwater systems, some of which may already be fully or over allocated, including the Great Artesian Basin and the Murray-Darling Basin.â&#x20AC;&#x2122; Q This story is shortened from

Inspirational activism knows no age limits In Colarado its so dry because of the warmer temps and wild fires and these pine beetles that are destroying the forests, they go to higher elevations, and so right now in November we should have two feet of snow on the ground but it’s just started to rain, and we were in the 70s… it should be in the 30s.

Mandy Nolan

At just 12 years old, Xiuhtezcatl Martinez has done things most adults will never do. As leader of youth organisation Earth Guardians, he’s addressed the United Nations, organised over 35 rallies, initiated a no-plastic-bag campaign and ended a 20-year contract with Xcel Energy so his city could move towards cleaner and more sustainable energies. Based in Boulder Colarado, Xiuhtezcatl traces his activism to his heritage. ‘My dad is of the Aztec tradition and I have always grown up knowing that all life should be protected. In order to change the world we have to change the way we think about the Earth and others.’ Fiercely intelligent and passionate about his world, Xiuhtezcatl is a young man filled with the belief that he can make a difference. ‘I guess my drive to start environmental activism was when I was six and I saw the documentary The Eleventh Hour. After I saw the destruction and what we were doing as a species to this planet I felt inspired to do something about it.’ ‘We young people will be most affected,’ says Xiuhtezcatl. ‘I see that other youth are inspired and they do stuff and they continue to do stuff. ‘I went to a UN summit in Rio De Janeiro of world leaders, and it was definitely the

most inspiring thing that has happened for me. Young people came over from all over the planet, it was one of the most incredible things I have ever seen! There was so much diversity. When you walked into a room of 10,000 kids it was amazing.’ So while it’s great to have a vision for environmental change, how can communities make real sustainable change? ‘I have started, in my own life, doing simple things like wasting less water, biking to school… then we took it into community and then nationally… We [also] filed a lawsuit against the US government for not protecting the environment,’ says Xiuhtezcatl. ‘We need to focus on what is good, and how to collaborate and there are so many coun-

tries all over the planet that are wanting to… one of my plans is to participate and to set up our first official Earth Guardian chapters in Australia.’ There is something entirely remarkable about the passion and clarity of this young environmentalist who finds his research ‘fun’.

Research is fun ‘Today, me and my friends and my brother got on the computer and did some research on Australia and the issues you are facing there. It’s just so fun what you can do, it’s not boring at all!’ Climate change is the key motivator for the Earth Guardians, and forest degradation an area that Xiuhtexcat feels needs urgent attention. ‘Definitely forest devastation is the main thing.

KFC looks to open shop in Byron Multinational fast-food chain Kentucky Fried Chicken (KFC) could have a fight on its hands if it tries to open a takeway outlet in Byron Bay, mayor Simon Richardson has warned. When asked what makes KFC different from other multinationals already operating in the town, Cr Richardson told The Echo, ‘KFC and the like attacks the very soul, the spirit of the town – the reason why we are here and visitors keep coming. Our shire is different; it has an extremely rare degree of community  integ-

rity and an atmosphere that is welcome in the CBD of Byron.’ Paul Waters, president of treasured by both resident and visitor and there is a desire to Byron’s chamber of commerce, Byron United, told The Echo, for this to be maintained.’ ‘I don’t believe our members Chamber opposes would be supportive at all; KFC representatives and we want to try to preserve the Byron Shire Council staff are unique and eclectic nature of this week expected to meet Byron Bay as much as we can.’ In the 1990s, McDonald’s and discuss the plan to open a franchise in the town, long tried and failed after a fierce known for fighting off corpo- community campaign which rate giants and their brands, opposed it. The Club Med chain which locals say would spoil met the same fate that decade when it wanted to set up an upits unique ambience. The town’s business group market resort at the old Byron head told The Echo, ‘KFC isn’t Bay Beach Resort site.

‘Some people think that [climate change] is something way off but it’s very close. We are responsible, it is our fault… we need to start living as if our future matters.’ So how, in the opinion of a 12-year-old, can the world affect real change? ‘People are not very committed,’ he says. ‘One of the biggest things we need to focus on is education because they don’t know what is happening and they need to be motivated and to change their lifestyle. We have to change from a consumption-based society to a more sustainable one. We have to change how we live.’ If you have kids, Xiuhtezcatl Martinez is a must-see.

istration’s increasing reliance on “signature” strikes, which allow the CIA to fire missiles even when it doesn’t know the identities of those who could be killed.’ The CIA runs the drone program and it is shrouded in secrecy, which enables people like Brennan to characterise the program in glowing terms, which go mainly unchallenged by the media, and contribute to the public assumption that drones are accurate, safe, and taking out the bad guys. Thus Brennan is able to get away with saying, as reported in The Post: Drones’ capability to linger over targets for days enables unprecedented ‘surgical precision,’ Brennan said, ‘the ability, with laser-like focus, to eliminate the cancerous tumor called an al-Qaeda terrorist while limiting damage to the tissue around it – that makes this counter-terrorism tool so essential.’ This despite little evidence that active or powerful  elements of Al-Qaeda are operating  in the Swat area of Pakistan which has been targeted by drones.

Nevertheless, increasingly another story is emerging which raises fundamental questions about the wisdom and the morality of our policy vis-a-vis Pakistan, and Brennan’s effort to pretend that the drone program isn’t  destructive, and hugely alienating to Pakistan. According to Greenwald, speaking to his staff in a briefing upon his return from Pakistan, people with whom he spoke ‘said the Drone  attacks were a great recruiting tool for the Taliban,  because  powerless  people  want  to fight back for the losses they have suffered, as their communities and families  are attacked. Many businesses have been destroyed in the Swat area, and schools are empty because everyone is afraid of drone attacks.’ Greenwald explains: ‘Let’s assume for a moment the drones can be technically accurate, although that is questionable. What information are they using to establish their targets? Basically it is a form of bribery, where the CIA gives former Pakistani  military large sums of money to pass out to sources on the ground in Swat, where

‘I have a drone’ is currently US foreign diplomacy

the Taliban are most active. Sometimes – and it is impossible to tell how much – these bribes lead to the settling of old and local scores.’ So there is another painful and tragic side to the drone story – not the one of killing so called  ’militant  targets’ but rather the slaughter of innocent civilians, as stories of drone victims have emerged in the Fata area of Swat where the drones are targeted.  Greenwald recounted one situation, as told to him from people from area of the bombing, that  there  was a group of elders were meeting in a Jirga  – a kind town meeting of elders – to resolve a community conflict, this one a dispute about mining. But the  meeting  was  interpreted  by drone intelligence as a group of men with guns – obviously not unusual  for the region – and it became a ‘signature strike’ with a  missile  killing between 20 and 40 of the elders.  As with their intense efforts to work to end the war in Afghanistan, Greenwald and Brave New Films started their quest to change US drone policy with heavy odds (and check out his latest efforts at WarCosts. com). But just as the public attitude toward the Afghan war shifted over time, with heavy dosages of strong factual information to contradict  the administration’s line, Greenwald is confident that the attitude toward drones will shift.

Keeping the gate locked Congratulations to Deborah Lilly for a fantastic, informational meeting on Wednesday night! I am very excited that so many people are expressing a commitment to being gasfield free here in the Shire.  The declaration of a Gasfield Free Community has been proven to be a very powerful and effective thing we can do.  It informs people, through the flyer and DVD that are given to each household; links them as community through the conversations had when doing the survey; generates publicity through the declaration process and gives people strong resolve to resist coalseam gas, hopefully to the point of being prepared to take peaceful direct action.  At this point in time, Byron Shire is not under immediate drilling threat â&#x20AC;&#x201C; the front line of gasfield invasion into our region is at Casino and Grafton. It is a great time for groups

Smart meters are not smart to install On page 22 of the last edition of The Echo there was a writeup on â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Smart Metersâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;. Readers may also wish to know of the public opposition that has occurred worldwide to installation of these devices, and the reasons why. Their seemingly benign purpose is to record your power usage, moment-by-moment, and then convey this data wirelessly to the supplier. In doing so, microwaves are periodically emitted to which some people are sensitive. Smart meters may even â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;legallyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; utilise your household wiring as the transmitting antenna! While touted as â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;helpingâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; customers use less electric-

ity, the general impact is ever higher bills, enabled by the capability to more finely increment peak demand periods. In effect, the customer base is profiled en masse so as to extract maximum profit while supplying the least in return. This â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;flexibleâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; strategy also permits volatility in business costs or power outages to be passed directly on to the consumer by trading availability against demand. Smart meter billing discriminates against pensioners and the disabled who must occupy their home throughout the day. The 24hour, real-time metering even allows determination of which appliances were in use

and when. Apart from raising privacy issues, this provides a feed of commercially saleable information. Rather than waiting to evaluate the recent, and hugely unpopular, roll-out of smart meters in Victoria, the Gillard government is poised to accelerate their deployment nationwide. Soon they will be fiddling in your meter box. To find out more, do an internet search for â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;stop smart metersâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;. The latest issue of Silicon Chip, the Australian electronics enthusiast magazine, has a full-page editorial against smart meters â&#x20AC;&#x201C; and they should know.

to get together and plan public meetings and surveying action for the new year, after the school holidays. Go to CSG Free Communities under csgfreenorthernrivers.org and study the strategy carefully if you want to get involved.  I will be contacting people who put their names down at the Mullum Public Meeting and putting them in touch with others in their area, within the next week.  If you wish to get involved, please contact me at csgfreebyronshire@gmail.com. Meanwhile, have a wonderful Christmas and holiday season.

It can burn, baby

roads and fire breaks are now locked up. Roads untrafficable, fire breaks overgrown and forests that were regularly burnt for hazard reduction now carrying a waist-deep cover of fuel. Koonyum Range has a long history of bad bushfires. If Mr Blackett had seen a recent fire race up the escarpment from Mullumbimby Creek he may change his views. Two fires I will long remember are a fire that started in the Doon Doon Valley and burnt through the rainforest of the Nightcap Range along the Terania Creek escarpment for a distance of approximately ten kilometres. And trying to control a fire at Whiskey Creek, Nullum State Forest, Main Arm using a bulldozer one Melbourne Cup day where green trees that were pushed over burned instantly when they hit the ground. If you have driven down a steep narrow fire road towards an advancing fire there are lots of times you wish they were 100 metres wide, not three. James, join the local rural fire service and get into the real world of fire fighting.

Having worked in the local former state forests for over 34 years I believe I have a fair knowledge of local fire habits. The Brunswick Valley has changed dramatically in the last 60 years. Once where there was clear land used for dairy farms these have been subdivided and a lot of land neglected. Where there were once thousands of acres of managed banana plantations this land is now mostly overgrown and a fire hazard.

Most importantly the ‘trial’ would have seen other smaller communities saddled with the machine-not-the-human approach to health. The committee is also to be thanked, especially Frank Lynch,  our tireless chairman.

Unfortunately in this era of public service cuts, the assault on the hospital may not be over. We do need a national conversation on the sustainability of health services with an ageing population. However, cutting front-line services is not where the savings should be made! Any of the generous money donations left over will be returned to the fabulous Hospital Auxiliary who have supported the hospital for decades.

Mullumbimby

Losing our koalas I moved to Tyagarah in May and have had the unexpected delight of koalas in my garden. One mother and her joey have been in constant residence for six months and it had become my ritual to quietly check on the mum and small bub each morning. Sometimes they were hard to spot, but I found them every day. The stand of trees divides three properties, and the koalas seemed unconcerned by our daily goings-on. Until… three weeks ago our neighbours had a joyous celebration, with amplified music for a few hours. It didn’t go on late and wasn’t that loud, but

it was too much for the koalas, as they haven’t been seen since.  After seeing the instant impact on the koalas from just one night of revelry, I’m so worried about the big music festivals moving into this beautiful area, plonked amongst koala habitat. My concern was exponentially increased after the report from one expert stating in his opinion koalas are ‘tough’, in The Echo last week. What rubbish, they don’t have super powers! I am concerned about koalas and other species moving on the night of the disturbance for music festivals. The chances of them being hit by a car, trapped by fencing, increased contact with feral predators, or walking into campers poses a huge risk. When you combine all the site proposals, it’s such a large area of habitat. Where do these animals move too? Is it safe for vulnerable koalas carrying their infants to be moving about into another animal’s territory? George the snake man (what a legend!) pointed out the increase in snake incidents due to the disturbance of the Ewingsdale Interchange works. I’m guessing the super festivals will have a similar impact. We have greedy eyes upon our Shire, be it fracking or super festivals. The profits for so few are not worth the harm to threatened species. Jane Way

Cameron Bell, Principal Kate Brady LLB (Hons)

knew we were in trouble when the young auto-rickshaw driver pulled his vehicle off to the side of the road to take a phone call. We had just slipped past the police barricades at the entrance to Kundakalum town with the plastic flaps of the rickshaw down protecting us from the monsoon rains and the police on the lookout for any foreigners or troublemakers who dared to stray into this forbidden zone. When the driver started to turn around to head back my instincts automatically kicked in to bail out of the rickshaw: I grabbed my suitcase, tripod, camera bag and a perplexed three-year-old Omar. Partner Treena jumped out as well. A lumbering fish truck returning to our intended destination of the seaside village of Indinthakarai came into view. I stepped into the middle of the road to flag it down although by now a plainclothes cop on a motorbike had appeared. But I wasn’t to be stopped. Having flown over 10,000km to record our prime minister Julia Gillard offering to sell uranium to the Indian PM and then another 3,000km from New Delhi to the southernmost tip of India, I wanted to reach the valiant anti-nuke fisherfolk of Indintha-

karai. This where the Russians have built two nuclear power plants on a seismic fault line – right where the Boxing Day tsunami of 2004 swept nearly two thousand locals to their deaths and demolished all buildings in its wake. Two carloads of police soon turned up and we were bundled back to the Kundakalum cop shop. There our passports and mobile phone numbers were recorded – which left me paranoid for the rest of the trip, as the activist phones there are all tapped by Indian state security. We’re talking national security and big bikkies here – $140 billion in nuclear power contracts if the Centre government has its way. The Kojak look-alike policeman interviewing us repeated that the area was a prohibited zone under Section 144. I didn’t bother to draw the parallel for him that this was exactly the same rationale used by the South Australian coppers two months earlier in arbitrarily arresting people at Lizards Revenge outside Olympic Dam uranium mine. It would seem the nuclear lobby worldwide has a special dispensation for suspending people’s normal

rights of assembly, freedom of speech and freedom of nonviolent protest. Back at our hotel the booking clerk had been rung by police and his friendly attitude had changed. We decided to leave town before police googled my anti-nuke track record and came back. Four nights later, under cloak of darkness, I found myself bumping along a goat track entering the seaside village of Indinthakarai. A lit-up Virgin Mary bobbed along on the dash of the 4WD as a very happy-go-lucky 74-year-old priest clapped along to a popular Bollywood song, and three strong anti-nuke activist women from Indinthakarai sang heartily. The priest told me he was married with a special dispensation from the Pope in Rome and had two grown-up children. I felt like I was trapped inside a Graham Greene novel: all we lacked was the bottle of whisky. For 441 days the people of Indinthakarai have resisted the dictates of the Centre government 3,000km away in New Delhi to incorporate their village into their nuclear plans.

my needs power. Power. More power to ‘beat’ China. To fill still more the overflowing pockets and black Swiss bank accounts of the burghers of Bangalore, Mumbai, Delhi and Kolkata. To put kids into sweat shops and factories at 10 years of age to make cheap acid-washed jeans, footwear and toys for a dollar a day for people living in western ‘democracies’ like Australia. The latest round of opposition to stop the opening of the Kundakalum nuclear power plants has raged for more than ten years now. Seaside villages all along the coast, not just Indinthakarai at ground zero, have opposed the opening of the first two of six planned nuclear reactors every step along the way. Tens of thousands of fisherfolk who live off the ocean have taken part in hunger strikes and imaginative demonstrations and peaceful blockades. They’ve buried themselves up to the neck in sand at the approach to the plants. They’ve immersed themselves in the ocean and blockaded the harbour with their fishing boats. These rolling protests have been continuous since August 15 last year – India’s day of Independence. Since then there have been two major police raids in March and September involving thousands of police each time. In the last raid, the police baton-charged peaceful protestors and beat everyone in their path who could not flee fast enough: children, the crippled, old men and women. One fisherman was shot dead. Another fell down and died from his injuries. People threw themselves into the sea as they tried to escape the tear-gas and baton charges. The tear-gas shells used showed an expiry date of 2002, ‘Made in the USA,’ and they caused permanent horrible sores on the faces of the kids and those exposed to the outdated chemicals. The police entered the priest’s church, broke the statue of Mary and urinated in the foyer area. That is the price to people’s lives of going nuclear. I filmed for the next ten days and was given a very humbling insight into the life of this courageous little village. It will form the basis of my next film which could be called simply Business As Usual or more enigmatically, The Ant in the Ear of the Elephant – an expression used by one of the leaders in Indinthakarai to sum up their chances of winning against the huge nuclear beast. But an ant biting in the right place in the ear of an elephant can inflict a lot of pain and trip the animal up. That’s what’s happening in India right now.

This is much like growing grain for feedlot cows. By contrast, of the 35 million tonnes caught by small-scale fishers, nearly all is used for direct human consumption. Where industrial fishing discards 13 per cent of their catch, disrupting marine ecosystems, small-scale fishers discard only three per cent. The story of small-scale fishing in Fremantle is one of the Nyungar people, of Sicilian immigrants and northern European colonists. Industrialisation left their methods behind and concentrated large efforts against crayfish and tuna. In the past few years, climate change and over-harvesting is disrupting both these fisheries.

Europeans. During this time, it shifted from a system featuring marine mammals, sharks and crayfish to one of birds, smaller fish (such as snapper and kahawai) and crabs. In the past two thousand years human populations underwent wars, migrations, economic changes and most recently global industrialisation. Small-scale fishing, a livelihood for woman and men equally for thousands of years, has suffered in ways which parallel impacts on small-scale farming. Today, large industrial fishing vessels catch 56 million tonnes of fish, of which 49 per cent is used to feed other animals including farmed fish.

Like coastal communities the world over, Western Australians are looking out on changing seas, unlike what were ever known before. What is small-scale fishing like here in Byron Bay? There is hardly anything of what early Bundjalung practised. Gone are efforts like whaling, mullet netting or pipi harvesting. Recreational catch harvests less than a fish an hour. Close to shore, the marine park is still so new that all the details of the co-management with the Arakwal people are still unresolved. Similar management by zoning for adjacent areas beyond three nautical miles, recently considered by federal government, is now inexplicably absent from the new Commonwealth Marine Reserves system. So what does all this mean for our marine animals? I am only starting to research a Byron historical marine ecology. Already worrying questions arise. But the better we know our marine past, the sooner we may break with global trends. What if we listen to the sea change, however sad? Instead of arguing over who harvests the last fish, by means small or industrial, we could instead act to support their very existence.

History, despite its wrenching pain, cannot be unlived, but if faced with courage, need not be lived again. – Maya Angelou

e often say the sea is timeless but the oceans have a past. In early November, sixty of us biologists and historians from around the world met in Fremantle to piece together the part of this history that concerns marine animals. These include charismatic whales and other sea mammals, wild fishes that make up ‘fisheries’ and many others with startling bodies and surprisingly important lives such as coral. Collating evidence from the last hundred years and out into deep geologic time, a painful story emerges. Recreational anglers in Blackwood Estuary, Western Australia, now catch less than a fish an hour while in the 1970s, they caught a bit more than four each hour. During the 1950s, off Pelorus Island in the Great Barrier Reef, branching corals stopped growing for the first time in a thousand years. If the history of Spanish mackerel off the east coast of Australia is considered from 1900, the population clearly shows declines. This suggests the recent ‘sustainable fishery’ label is based on data with an incomplete time series. Over the past several hundred years, the populations of large fishes of the Spanish Mediterranean, Adriatic, Baltic, North Atlantic and China Seas have all declined by as much as 90 per cent. Squid and gelatinous creatures take over. Over the past 1500 years the Hauraki Gulf, New Zealand, experienced the arrival of first Polynesians and then

Health

& BEAUTY Good Posture = Last Longer Good posture is a natural aspect of our being that is obvious to anyone with the eyes to see. We assess each other by beauty and posture without the need to be taught. This knowledge seems to be innate and we do this, often, without being conscious of it but it helps us form an impression of whomever we meet. Chiropractors are trained to do ‘postural assessment’ as a first step in understanding and predicting where problems arise in the body. We look at how you stand and how you move. X-ray analysis indicates where you are wearing out and we can predict, from the shape of your spine, where your structure will fail. If you are experiencing pain then something has failed and we can assist your body to recover by doing an adjustment and correcting the alignment. If you want your body to perform well, spreading the load evenly throughout your structure, gaining relief from those chronic problems and optimising your health, then we can help by restoring your natural upright posture. For re-alignment, postural restoration, health optimisation in yourself, your family members and staff join us in our mission of life enhancement at:

Thank you Dunecarers This week is national coastcare week, a week to celebrate all the wonderful work done by our dunecare volunteers. For over 22 years dunecare volunteers have been helping maintain the vegetation along Byron Shireâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s beautiful beaches. Their work not only looks great but helps create habitat for native species along our fragile coast. Dunecare volunteer Miles Shorten said â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Dunecare is a wonderful opportunity for people to come together and meet and strengthen local community.â&#x20AC;&#x2122; 4HU`NYV\WZĂ&#x201E;UPZO[OLPY^VYRPUNILL^P[OTVYUPUN[LHVYH))8Âş+\ULJHYL is also an opportunity to learn about the ecology of our larger shared backyardâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; said Mr Shorten. Many of the beaches were sand mined so the original vegetation was lost HUK)P[V\)\ZO^OPJOPZUV^KLJSHYLKH^LLKVMUH[PVUHSZPNUPĂ&#x201E;JHUJL was planted along the coast. Dunecare groups, National Parks, Byron Shire Council, bush regeneration contractors and other environmental groups such as EnviTE have been gradually eliminating Bitou Bush and other environmental weeds along our coasts and restoring the native vegetation, which includes beautiful littoral rainforest. There are ongoing threats to the native wildlife and plants in our dunes. Threats include invasion by many species of environmental weeds which have spread from local gardens. Other problems are JH\ZLKI`WLVWSL^HSRPUNHSSV]LY[OLK\ULZPSSLNHSJSLHYPUNMVY]PL^ZVY[YHJRZSP[[LY\UJVU[YVSSLKWL[ZHUKĂ&#x201E;YL>OH[`V\JHUKV[VOLSWV\Y JVHZ[HSĂ&#x2026;VYHHUKMH\UH& Volunteer with a dunecare group  Donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t litter, and pick up any litter you see on the beach  Always have dogs under control even in off leash areas  Use designated walking tracks  Plant native plants or plants that are not environmental weeds in your garden.

GIVEAWAYS* TIX FOR COMEDY AT THE TAVERN! We have a double pass to see comedians Mandy Nolan and Nick Penn at the Ocean Shores Tavern on Saturday at 8pm. Email gigs@echo. net.au with subject header ‘ocean of laughs’.

‘My husband Ash (Grunwald) and Emilie’s partner Scott (bass player for the Living End) have this Corona House in Belongil, where they put people together to jam and play; they sponsor musos to hang out and get drunk. So they are there doing that and the next day I went in there wildly hung over and Emilie was there and we just got talking about how we used to play music before kids and I was saying I wanted to play again. I had got out of that creative vibe, and I was just starting to feel like getting it back again, and she said she felt the same… I said, I want to do bluegrass country stuff, and she said so do I! I said I need great harmonies, she said I can do that, and I wanted someone who played mandolin or fiddle and she played both mandolin and fiddle. I was nervous the first time we sang together that she’d hate my voice but it went well, and Scott would be around when we were rehearsing and grab his double bass and then Fingers Malone joined in and then it’s been a much larger affair!’ And so Mr Cassidy was born. Danni is currently 26 weeks pregnant with her second child. ‘I was pregnant when I started the project, we were going to do a full album but it was hard because I was really crook. It was taking a lot longer than I thought and then Scott our bass player had to take off and play (he’s with the Living End) so we never got to do a whole album, just an EP, but it’s worked out better, you can just put your favourite songs together.’ For the girls it’s about picking up and pushing on. Danni admits to being inspired by artists like Kasey Chambers who just have that knack of making her family part of the show. ‘I saw this photo of Kasey Chambers on stage playing with her husband and her brother and her father and her little baby strapped to her back on the stage and the baby is asleep!’ For Danni, stopping playing was a choice she made so she could focus on Sunny, her now-4-year-old. ‘When Ash and I met we were both playing and I was playing more than him, but his career began to take off and I got a bit resentful, but then in the last five years I hardly played, not even my friends round here knew that I could even play at all! A lot old of my old friends and family thought Ash was responsible for my not playing any more but he has always been very encouraging. The worst thing during that non-playing period was touring with him and selling merch and girls coming up and giving phone numbers! I’d be like, rip, yeah he’ll call you…’

The Cassidy Connection In collaboration with Emilie, Danni has produced an achingly gorgeous EP with one of the most penetrating and breathtaking songs: Where My Babies Lie, telling a story so hard it can barely be told. It is a song Danni penned for her friend Cindy, the mother of the three little children tragically killed by their father seven years ago. It’s a poignant murder ballad that retells an intensely painful story. It’s something Danni felt she was compelled to write as homage to her friend and her inestimable pain. ‘It’s just so, so sad. I’ve spent a lot of time with her and she talks about it heaps – it’s part of her own therapy and it really affected me. I think about it all the time and think about her suffering. I woke up at five in the morning and that chorus came to me. Where she lives is such a small town and every day she has to drive past the dam with the five little crosses – I say why don’t you leave? But she says I can’t leave! My babies are here.’ It was a challenging song to get right. ‘I wanted to be sensitive but wanted to tell the story and in respect to her I wanted to tell her story. I put off sending it to her for ages. It was getting close to the EP release time so I sent it to her with a letter. I hadn’t heard anything. I

was starting to stress, and she rang me the day we got the CDs back and she was bawling her eyes out. She loved that I had written the song.’ Catch this hot new bluegrass country folksy little outfit with Danni, Emilie, Ash, Scott and Fingers Malone when they launch their EP at the Courthouse Hotel in Mullumbimby on Sunday at 3pm. With special guests Starboard Cannons. $10 (children FOC).

Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s already been noted that this generation needs to be constantly rewarded for anything they do. Employers have remarked that they expect recognition at the end of every task. Schoolies Week is a highly See Mandy live at www.echonetdaily.net.au unnecessary artificially created youth tradition that has been carefully sold to eager young just-turned-18-year-olds as a â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;must-doâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; activity to WELCOME TO BINGE SCHOOL validate their 12 or more years nurturing and growing their new adult minds. What a coincidence for the alcohol companies that the end of I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t get schoolies week. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve heard adults bang on about how this school coincides with the legal age for buying and consuming alcohol. end-of-school week or more long piss-up is a rite of passage but I just donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t buy it. Schoolies week is a marketing scam, and kids, the most It seems ironic that this fresh new crop of future thinkers, doctors, vulnerable consumers of them all, just suck it right up. Imagine being the hairdressers, engineers, architects, cops and what not should be ushered only kid not going to schoolies week. It would be like having a bad case to the bar, encouraged to celebrate the academic tribulations theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve of social pox. Parents all around the country are pressured into sending faced growing their grey matter by drowning it in booze. Schoolies week their prize investment into a war zone. And guess what, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Mummy and is good for business. It sits just before the Christmas holidays, so that Daddy who pay for the privilege of having their beloved child vomiting operators get a two-week or more shot at charging massive fees for their their body weight in vodka, being raped on the beach or falling to their accommodation before a long period of full occupancy. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m not against death off a balcony. What an awesome way to celebrate. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve always celebrating the end of school; give them a sparkler, maybe a party, thought that gang rape really helps make an occasion memorable. a night out, a new bike, but $6000 in spending money, airfares and Schoolies week is stupid, and I just canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t believe that weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve all bought accommodation (thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s what it cost a friend of mine)! Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s just outright into it. When I was a kid it never existed. When I finished school Mum stomach-churning over-indulgence. I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t know why we think they lashed out and took me down to the RSL for a schnitzel and a dessert. need such huge rewards. Theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve never done anything but leech off us That was it. There was no fanfare. I got the night off washing up. That was celebration enough. No week-long expensive indulgence to herald anyway. My life is a series of regrets, empty lunch boxes and outstanding accounts. Old people are the ones who deserve a massive celebration. my impressive achievements. No, school finished. I got a part-time job But look at Seniorsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; Week. It sucks. No all-night parties or pole-dancing and got ready to move to Brisbane so that I could start Uni. Rewarding comps, no bingo and morning melodies. Imagine if every seniorsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; week kids with trips to the Gold Coast, or Byron or Bali, is just ludicrous. So 60,000 old fogeys came to town and went off. what if you finished school? Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the easiest, simplest time of your life. Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s like rewarding someone for wiping their bum after theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve done Youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d certainly know that theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d had a big night. a poo. Schooldays just ainâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t that hard. Mummy makes your lunches. Youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d wake up, go outside, and instead of seeing Mummy and Daddy pay your food and board, let you use their car, the mayhem of a drunken teenage rampage youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll sometimes even buy you a car, and deck you out in expensive designer notice that the seniors have painted your rocks street wear. The first 12 years are actually the easiest. So you had to spend white, washed your wheelie bin and tidied up your your high school years doing stuff you didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t want to. Boo Hoo.

JPOD AT THE BYRON BREWERY ON SATURDAY NIGHT

Kicking the Tin Can The votes are in! Handpicked by you during the final stages of recording, Brisbaneâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s indie art 5-piece, Tin Can Radio, have their brand-new EP Open Ears Open Mind (the spawn of the radical Audio Democracy Project). In support of the record, the band is hitting the road on a massive national tour starting this month! The Audio Democracy Project saw the eclectic five-piece embrace a whole new concept â&#x20AC;&#x201C; letting listeners decide what they want to hear. The response received was overwhelming, with an impressive number of votes cast. Having spent the last few months focusing solidly on the record and The Audio Democracy Project, the band is itching to get on the road for the national tour and start spreading their infectious joy throughout rural, remote and metro towns. Hotel Great Northern on Friday.

instrumental troubadour, Nathan Kaye, will be doing his best bits including his improvised beat-box routine as well as his underground brand of sunbaked blues-driven roots live.

As 2012 launches into its final month of merry mayhem, universal turbulence, end-of-Mayancalendar madness and kamikaze shopping, humour is this week’s essential accessory…

WITH LILITH

E ARIES: This week likes your sassy style, but not your impatience and inclination to take things personally. Everyone has extra pressure in December so don’t take on more than you can manage. Prioritise. And if Plan A doesn’t attract backing, remember the alphabet has twenty-five more letters. F TAURUS: Shop, prep and pre-plan now before things get hectic and frantic, as they inevitably will. Putting in the hard yards this week means you’ll be able to cruise reasonably stress free through the next three, even if events don’t altogether go as planned, as they inevitably won’t. G GEMINI: With this week’s astral emphasis in your house of partnerships, extra effort’s needed to empathise with colleagues and loved ones. It’s seriously worthwhile deleting arguing from your list of December activities and refraining from offering unsolicited opinions. Don’t worry; the minute you stop offering, they’ll ask. H CANCER: There’s no better place to be this week than with your homies, rather than out and about dealing with a whole lot of pushy people’s agendas. That said, your Cancerian storyboard has some marvellous, open-hearted aspects for making peace in the places it needs to be made. I LEO: Firming up those expansive holiday plans? Your stars respectfully suggest a less-is-more approach by deleting stressful extras that stretch your time, money, energy and patience to breaking point. Better for all of us you stay a calm and charming rather than a snappy, exasperated majesty… J VIRGO: With this week’s world on countdown, you’ll have to think quickly, make snap decisions, trust your instincts and take steps to lower tension levels during mid- to late-week Virgo moon. That said, there’s still plenty of festive enjoyment and friendly entertainment on the Mercurian menu. will have you out of your seat and rocking like it’s 1967! Stokers Siding Hall on Saturday at 8pm. $25. Tickets available at Organic Revolution, Main St, Murwillumbah, 6672 7070. Phone reservations call 6679 5074.

HTRK at the NRTHN Southern Cross University, Mushroom Marketing, The Gate and 4ZZZ FM are pleased to announce a new concert promotion in Byron Bay, as part of Live Solution – an Australian Government-funded concept that seeks to encourage and positively represent responsible drinking at live events. When tasked with the opportunity to organise an event under the Live Solution banner, principal organiser Michael Hardy saw it as an opportunity to not just represent a positive social cause, but also an opportunity to bring something fresh musically to town as well. ‘Byron Bay is a place that’s been long recognised as one with a strong cultural pulse. It’s a melting pot of innumerable cultural influences, and when it comes to live music it’s been fortunate to enjoy a

K LIBRA: Spending season sends Libran scales wavering between frugality and frivolity, the possible costly consequences of extravagance on next month’s credit payments, and whether you can make cheapskating look stylishly Zen. This week’s says get ahead of the game; shop now, save pain and strain later. L SCORPIO: A romantic transit for attached Scorps, and a sexy one for singles as Venus buffs up your bedroom stars. Plenty of temptations with your name on this week, though best explain to others why you’re doing what you’re doing or you’re in for a learning curve on the love road. M SAGITTARIUS: With this week’s Sagittarian legs heading towards Planet Party, lock into cruise control now for the season of unreason. Do what you can in advance rather than leave things till last minute in your usual spontaneous way. Then your only caution’s maxing the plastic. Don’t go there. N CAPRICORN: Sure it’s a stressy month. And with Mars giving extra charge to your initiative, vision’s important, but so is seeing things as they are; realistic appraisal, unbiased judgment and relentless self-awareness are your best friends this week. Plus that keen eye for a bargain buy… O AQUARIUS: This week everyone’s talking, nobody’s listening. How about you? Communication’s crucial to a smooth ride right now, so be as clear as an Aquarian can. If you aren’t getting through, take a deep breath and have another go – in a different way, from another angle. P P ISCES: Get whatever you can taken care of this week before the seasonal buzz intensifies even further. And with this week’s home zone offering equal measures of pleasure and stress, affection and tension, it’s worthwhile adopting the mantra of famous smiling Pisces, Meher Baba: Don’t Worry, Be Happy… healthy presence on many national touring circuits.’ He goes on: ‘Unfortunately, there’s a lot of music that Byron doesn’t experience: a lot of musical communities and subcultures across Australia – all with their own unique genres – that have been thriving and creating waves elsewhere in Australia that haven’t yet had many opportunities to be heard in a place like this. I decided I wanted to try to find some of those sounds and introduce them to Byron’s music scene.’ Working in collaboration with likeminded Sydney-based tastemakers The Gate, Michael attracted the attention of Melbourne-via-London duo HTRK (Mistletone/Ghostly International). Critically applauded for their incredible 2011 LP Work (work, work) which – among other plaudits – was awarded #1 in the Mess +Noise 2011 Critics Poll, the band fuses an array of influences to form a synth- and texturedrenched, amorphous, hypnotic sound, all underscored by the march of sparse, ominous analogue drum machine patterns. The end of 2012 sees the band playing a brief run of shows around Australia following recording sessions in Santa Fe. Get ready for something completely new. Saturday at the Hotel Great Northern.

CHESS

by Ian Rogers Play at Byron Services Club, Mon 7pm World number one Magnus Carlsen added another feather to his cap last week, with victory in at UNAM in Mexico. The UNAM Chess Festival, held at the huge National Autonomous University of Mexico featured multiple tournaments, simultaneous exhibitions, workshops and exhibitions of chess art, but Carlsen was, as usual, the star of the show. After winning a game against the ‘Rest of the World’ voting online, Carlsen then won the main event, a rapid and blindfold exhibition tournament. Carlsen’s skills as a blindfold player had been in evidence a week earlier when he took on four juniors simultaneously blindfolded in Santa Clara, California. The simultaneous blindfold exhibition was part of a California visit organised by the Silicon Valley Bank and the remarkable feature was not that Carlsen won all four games but that he did so in 15 minutes. The massive sums which

www.echo.net.au

Carlsen commands for his Mexico, US and similar promotional activities is due in part to expert managers but mostly due to Carlsen’s stunning results in serious tournaments; results which have left him clear number one in world rankings. His next tournament, which has just started, is the London Classic. Q The diagrammed position comes from the

recent World Seniors Championship won, unexpectedly, by Danish IM Jens Kristiansen. Australia’s Dick Voon, playing White, holds the advantage but saw that he could not win by playing 57.Rxd3 Rxd3 58.Bc2 because after 58...Ke5! 59.Bxd3 Kxd5, the Black king heads back to the h8 square with a classic ‘unjust’ draw. Voon therefore tried 57.Rc2?? which walked into 57... Rxc2! 58.Rxc2 Ne1+ and a chastened Voon was forced to concede the game after 59.Kg3 Nxc2 60.h5 Ne3 61.h6 Kg6 62.h7 Kxh7 63.Kf4 Nxd5+ 64.Kf5 Nc7 65.Kf6 Kh6 0–1 a

BOOK REVIEWS The Amber Amulet

Bear In Mind: tiny poems

By Craig Silvey

by Gyan

Review by Maximilien De Saxe, aged 10, Cape Byron Rudolf Steiner School Th e Amber Amulet is a creative book with a lot of comic-type illustrations. Th is is an amazing novel with an awesome storyline. The only thing I don’t like about this book is that it is too short. If there was a number 2 I would definitely buy it. The main character, Liam McKenzie (the Masked Avenger),is a 12-year-old boy-genius able to soak positive energy from precious gems. The masked avenger is a boy wanting to help out but he gets st uck when he gives away something that is not his to give. There is a saying that you shouldn’t judge a book by its cover and this book is defi nitely one of those books. The cover is covered in fake scratches and rips making it look really old, and the only clue that this book is brand new is the pages are clean white. Craig Silvey did a great job in writing this book – it is adventurous and it is great. I think everyone of every age will love it.

Review by Stuart Spence how to bleed a rose how to milk a swan how to make impossibles before the day is done So quietly puzzles singer, songwriter, poet, artiste at large, Gyan in her new offering, Bear In Mind, a book of ‘tiny poems’ with decidedly less-than-tiny clout. The eternally splendid artist has crafted a fascinating career, gliding down the creative currents of rock/pop idol-dom (when hair was bigger), to this year’s film soundtrack of P J Hogan’s Mental, and recently collaborating with the Sultan of Whimsy, Michael Leunig, to create Billy the Rabbit, a mesmerising dance through our theatres with text, drawing and music. In short, Gyan seems creatively tethered by nothing, anchored by none. Bear In Mind is a testament to this creative pinball. Kooky phrases, whispers over back fences, brain doodling, patchy memories, all are plucked from 20 years of eavesdropping, cutting and pasting, dreaming and collecting. Gyan clearly is a collector, probably even a hoarder. A gatherer of the oddball, the surreal and often the just bloody funny. twinkle twinkle little star here i sit insomnia

SHIPIBO EXHIBITION OPENING AT ZAKAY GLASS IN BYRON ON THE ARTS & INDUSTRY ESTATE ON FRIDAY

As the author hints on the book sleeve, ‘I’ve always had a fascination for the Haiku form of poetry but never for the rules,’ so the pages make small invitations imploring the reader to perhaps fi nish what she has started; to pick up where she’s left off. all the trees are bare i knit you a jumper now how can that be fair Family, Paul Kelly, leaf blowers, recalcitrant fig trees and a plethora of feathered friends all sneak quickly and silently on and off the pages. last night i heard a bird talking in its sleep These are the pickings from which writers often build, extrapolate upon, embellish, fatten up for Th anksgiving and serve with no discernible clues as to the work’s provenance; but here we are lucky enough to get a sneak peek at the origins of life. In a way, Gyan rebels against the magicians’ secret code and shows us how ‘it’s’ done, shooing away the smoke, turning the mirrors and standing aside. Like all good artists, the author volunteers the reader into voyeurism, whether they like it or not. Often Bear In Mind makes this awkwardly evident. just before dawn i heard you say her name Should we be hearing that? Bad luck. Gyan seems to say, ‘The song starts, where it fi nishes... well, you tell me.’ A collection of deep breaths, of fi rst chords, last tah-dahs, icing stuck to the bowl, sighs and burps, Bear In Mind is a reminder of what can be

LOST AT SEA by Jon Ronson Review by John Mitchell What a wonderfully refreshing compilation of stories make up Jon Ronson’s Lost Sea. Most recognisable for his superbly funny Men Who Stare At Goats, Ronson is a comedic skeptic, who, in the Lost Sea, gently guides us through the world of UFOs, indigo children, I n s a n e Clown Posse, altruistic k i d n e y donation and suicidalit y among the nouveau riche. Each story unfolds as a personal journey for Ronson as he engages the strange worlds of various fringe groups and sects. Ronson remains respectful and non-judgmental throughout which allows the tragedy and comedy of the circumstance to emerge quite naturally without the taint of contempt or thoughtless rejection. It would be all too easy to scoff at a particular group for an odd practice or strange belief, but Ronson demands that we suspend disbelief, if only temporarily, to entertain the possibility that these people are just that – real people, doing nothing more than straining to make sense of their world.

Case in point is the sect known as the ‘Jesus Christians’ who challenge the law to freely donate kidneys to those in need. Ronson carefully navigates through the rhetoric, accusation and counter accusation to unveil a small group of people who do little worse than try to help other people, albeit in a very unusual manner.

He shows us the manipulations and power dynamics within the group but never loses sight of the humanity underpinning the actions of the participants. As an ageing skeptic who is not immune to adopting a superior and rather dismissive attitude to such groups, I was humbled, entertained and educated by Ronson’s narrative.

Searching For Sugar Man  If youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re long enough in the tooth to remember Rodriguez â&#x20AC;&#x201C; and the screening I attended confirmed that in Byron such dinosaurs arenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t totally extinct â&#x20AC;&#x201C; youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll remember that he was a hippie cult figure who shot to near-fame in the early seventies with a couple of LPs in what used to be called the â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;undergroundâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; music scene. Then he vanished as quickly as he had appeared. His song Sugarman was exhumed for that awful Australian film Candy, but otherwise he was ancient history â&#x20AC;&#x201C; until now. None of us realised that Rodriguez was, and remained, a legend in of all places South Africa, where heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d been accorded iconic status as â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;the voiceâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; of the anti-Apartheid movement. The very best docos are those that have a mystery to solve, that follow a path that leads its participants to an unknown destination. This does just that, as Stephen Segerman and Craig Strydom set out to learn what became of their hero. Rumours had it that Rodriguez either self-immolated or blew his brains out on stage, but nothing was verifiable. The two devotees ultimately tracked their man down and lured him to Capetown and Joâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;burg, where the singer was greeted ecstatically at sell-out concerts (by what appeared to be exclusively white audiences). Recognition is an underrated laurel, or, as is more poetically observed here, â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;home is acceptanceâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;. The strength of this fascinating movie is in the odd slice of cultural history that it illuminates, the passion and perseverance shown by the searchers and the quiet dignity of Rodriguez when, after the

â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Doctor Livingstone?â&#x20AC;&#x2122; moment, he is thrust into a limelight that had eluded him decades earlier. The man himself comes across as a sweet and gentle recluse, stooped but cheery and still living in the tumbledown house that he has lived in in blue-collar Detroit for the past forty years. I could not shake off a peculiar feeling of guilt for not having been a fan of his albums, but nor could I begrudge the love and affection that was showered on him. ~John Campbell

her handâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;, Brendanâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s stony nonreaction is ripe with masochistic humour. Mark is not wracked by self-pity or seething anger; Cheryl, a married mother, is pragmatic and detached. But the heart takes no account of the body in which it is encased, and veteran Australian director Ben Lewinâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s softly-softly approach wades imperceptibly into deep emotional waters as the relationship between client and provider moves beyond their business agreement. Hawkes (he was Teardrop, the hillbilly meth-cooker in Winterâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Bone)

The Sessions By chance, I happened to hear Julia Gillard introduce legislation for the new Disability Pension into the House of Reps on the morning that I saw this upbeat but touching movie. As a society, we feel pity when seeing those whose physiology has been attacked by the â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;sharks of fateâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;, but in general we only take notice of them when they are striving for gold at the Paralympics. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a sad reflection of our obsession with air-brushed beauty. Based on the memoir of one such unfortunate, the eponymous sessions refer to the encounters that Mark (John Hawkes), paralysed since childhood by a severe bout of polio, had with sex therapist Cheryl (Helen Hunt). The 38-year-old poet spends most of his time in an iron lung â&#x20AC;&#x201C; he can survive for only a few hours outside of it. Mortified by his uncontrollable carnal functions and driven by a primal need for erotic gratification, he decides to undergo the therapy that he has so long spurned. But first he seeks out the blessing of Father Brendan, his local priest (William H Macy). That Mark so urgently desires what, by vocation, the able-bodied priest is forbidden is a sardonic juxtaposition â&#x20AC;&#x201C; when Mark tells him that â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;she took my penis in

<echowebsection=Cinema>

displays no overweening actorâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s ego in an insightful and multi-faceted portrayal that frequently appears to be channeling Stephen Hawking, while Hunt, coping calmly with a number of nude scenes, is great as a woman who is belatedly made aware of her own vulnerability. A lovely film â&#x20AC;&#x201C; and, for cat people, the last shot speaks volumes. ~John Campbell

To Rome With Love

pied-Ă -terre in Trastevere where Marcello and Sophia might have shagged in the days before millionaires bought the place out. Into their love nest comes Sallyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s friend Monica (Ellen Page â&#x20AC;&#x201C; an odd choice for a femme fatale) and, predictably, Jack is smitten with her while all the time he is receiving worldly advice from the renowned architect John (Alec Baldwin), whom only he can see. PenĂŠlope Cruz, in her tiny tight red dress, is an absolute knockout as Anna the call girl and Roberto Begnini is well suited to convey the befuddlement of somebody overwhelmed by the noxious cult of celebrity, but Allen himself is a constant drag as Jerry, the retired opera conductor. His whining wit is the shtick upon which Allen has built his considerable reputation as a comedian (his genius as a filmmaker has, hitherto, been far more profound), but it seems not so much tired as utterly exhausted here, from the minute we encounter him wracked with anxiety over a bumpy plane landing â&#x20AC;&#x201C; weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve seen the routine far too often. The photography is praiseworthy, with the caveat that any cinematographer who canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t find a few good images in the Eternal City might as well throw his camera in the Tiber, and the numerous scenes in which real life bystanders hang around gawking at the shoot is surprisingly hokey. ~ John Campbell

Lured by the largesse of Euro promotional bodies, Woody Allen in the autumn of his career has made a mercurial passage through the Old World. He brained it in London with the cold-blooded thriller Match Point, bombed with the horribly pretentious Vicky, Cristina, Barcelona, soared to forgotten heights with Midnight In Paris and, in keeping with the pattern, has crashed dismally in this entirely forgettable dud. The story, a fanciful concoction, is typical of an ĂŠminence grise who is content to re-work his own comfy formula. Of the many threads, one concerns Jack (Jesse Eisenberg) and his girlfriend Sally (Greta Gerwig). Theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re both students, but somehow they can afford to live in the sort of Marie Claire

Fool that I was there was no test-run before the dinner party at which I presented them; the tedium of attempting to slice into slivers the gelatinous Turkish delight before delicately inserting them into each uncooked meringue should have cautioned me that this was a recipe which might just possibly not work. The flaccid little shapes I duly served up bore none of that wonderful crispness of outer shell nor fluffy, chewy centre which mark a proper meringue. No, as dessert for my gluten-intolerant friends I chose instead a recipe which, in terms of the time spent in a very low oven, sounded much more like the triumphant meringues my mother used to make. Hours on the lowest oven setting she would leave hers in, and they were always fantastically dry and crisp with a slightly chewy interior. There are very strict rules for meringue-making, even if your ingredients â&#x20AC;&#x201C; as they did in this particular case â&#x20AC;&#x201C; might only number two. Spotlessly clean and dry mixing bowls and equipment: the tiniest trace of fat will inhibit the incorporation of air into the egg whites. High humidity and moisture are the enemies of meringues and will cause the mixture to collapse â&#x20AC;&#x201C; so they should never be made on a rainy day. Contamination of the whites with even a filament of yolk will spoil them. There are three best-known types of meringue. Firstly, the French â&#x20AC;&#x201C; and the most commonly known to home cooks, the one my mother employed â&#x20AC;&#x201C;

Here the ambrosial meals are cooked to order and the scrumptious cocktails and mocktails thrust you into a land of wonderful tales.

MINYON FALLS

La Table

fine white sugar beaten into egg whites then slowly baked. Then thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the Italian type made with boiling sugar syrup instead of caster sugar, resulting in a softer meringue. Finally there is the Swiss meringue whereby the egg whites are warmed and whisked over a bain-marie. This was the method I used to make my most spectacular ones ever: crisp on the outside, soft on the inside. And they looked divine. Sugar and egg white, air and heat, the simplicity and the magic of them! So, in my spotlessly clean and dry stainless steel bowl I stirred together three egg whites with 210 grams of caster sugar then set the bowl over a saucepan of simmering water. I kept stirring it until all the sugar was dissolved and the liquid was smooth and warm. Then, using electric beaters, I beat it for ten minutes on high speed, by which time it had cooled down and those famous stiff peaks had formed. After that it was a simple matter of dolloping blobs on to baking trays and popping them into an oven pre-heated to 130ÂşC, and immediately turning the heat down to 100ÂşC. I left them there for the suggested one and a half hours and to be on the safe side â&#x20AC;&#x201C; nervous after the Turkish delight debacle â&#x20AC;&#x201C; kept them in for half an hour a longer. For a super dry meringue I could have left them in for another five of six hours â&#x20AC;&#x201C; and might try that next time. Although I suspect that the next time I attempt meringues will be just before Christmas when I will pile the mixture on to a lined baking tray and then curve it carefully into the shell of a pavlova.

‘It is our belief that your [Contour Crafting] concept will be a quantum leap in modern construction industry,’ wrote Albrecht, in a subsequent letter. ‘Therefore, we are ready to do research in our own Degussa R&D departments to develop and provide construction materials that are serviceable and fitted for the special building conditions of the CC technology. ‘Degussa not only has at its disposal a wide range of construction chemicals which will be tested with regard to

their qualification and applicability for special CC cement formulations, but is also ready to develop special new construction chemicals in our own R&D labs fitted for the CC process,’ Albrecht continued. Khoshnevis is now perfecting a system to mix such materials continuously in industrial quantities right at the Contour Crafting nozzle, ‘the way a spider makes silk to build a web.’ ‘No company in the world is better able to bridge the gap between engineering idea and commercial practice than Degussa,’ Khoshnevis said. ‘With their help, I believe I will be able to show the world an instant house early next year.’ Source: USC, University of Southern California.

Backlash The HEMP Party applauds the decision to hold a NSW Upper House inquiry into the medical use of marijuana. A cross-party committee will look at whether marijuana can be used as an effective form of pain relief for sufferers of certain illnesses, as well as examining any legal issues surrounding its use. HEMP Party secretary, Graham Askey, says the move is long overdue. â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re ecstatic,â&#x20AC;&#x2122; he said. â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Medicinal marijuana is legal in about 14 states at least in the United States, and in many other countries in the worldâ&#x20AC;Ś People in pain are given morphine, even though that is illegal they still have access to it. Why should it be any different for cannabis?â&#x20AC;&#x2122; Why indeed, but Backlash advises not to break out the bong, er champagne, too quickly. Any recommendation would have to get through the bigot barrier, and that is wide and thick.

Ten naked women gather at dawn on Thursday at Australiaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s most easterly point, Byron Bay lighthouse. Their message is visible in the pic above: cheeky, but serious.

Shire Taxis: one of their drivers, Brett Hewitt, was filling up at BP Suffolk last week when he noticed smoke coming out of a house in Beech Drive. Driving over to investigate he saw flames at the back of the house. He grabbed the fire extinguisher from the taxi, went inside to check if anyone was home and, with the help of a neighbour with a garden hose, was able to put out the fire. Thanks for your quick thinking, Brett! QQQQ

In last weekâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s paper Glen Van der Merwe suggested that people whose neighbours had noisy pool pumps should contact him. The correct number on which to do so is 0431 683 374. QQQQ

permarket in Mullum was last week selling two litres of A2 milk 51 cents cheaper than the big one. And the littlest newspaper (Saturday Star) still has some of the best unintentional political satire in the state. QQQQ

But it gets into trouble. The Northern Star reports that the Saturday Star has been criticised for publishing a racist joke. Co-owner of the Mullumbimby paper, Harold Ross, said he downloaded the joke from the internet and â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t think it would be in breach of anything.â&#x20AC;&#x2122; However, in July last year another company was found in breach of the Racial Discrimination Act when a supervisor told the same joke in the workplace in the presence of an Indigenous employee. Arakwal Aboriginal Corporation chief executive Yvonne Stewart commented, â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;This paper is not sensitive to Aboriginal issues, so it doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t surprise me.â&#x20AC;&#x2122;

Grail Quest Introduction to Grail Quest (an 8-week course) which is the opening term of the one-year parttime foundation course.

...a journey into the Spiritual Science of Rudolf Steiner...

GRAIL QUEST offers a modern form of adult education based on the work of Rudolf Steiner. Through a deepened understanding of the inner workings of the world and ourselves, inner development and soul transformation are brought about. This in turn leads to an enhanced capacity to transform the outer world. The course consists of lectures, discussions and workshops which are expanded through artistic experiences in music, painting, sculpture, story telling, speech, drama and craft. No previous artistic experience is necessary. The emphasis of the course is away from competition and is focused on individual growth. The course aims to teach through the heart, hand and mind and to bring our efforts to fruition through love of the deed. GRAIL QUEST is also a prerequisite for Steiner Teacher Training programs.

52 December 4, 2012 The Byron Shire Echo

<echowebsection=Backlash>

Some of the themes explored in the course are: The Quest for Meaning. The Elements. The Temperaments. The Origins of the Earth & Humanity. The Evolution of Consciousness. Christology. Biodynamics. The Search for the Holy Grail. Life Phases: an Exploration of Biography. 8 week Introductory Course: $600 Tuesday 4.30 â&#x20AC;&#x201C; 7.30pm and Thursday 4.30 â&#x20AC;&#x201C; 7.30pm Plus 2 Saturdays 9.30 â&#x20AC;&#x201C; 3:30pm Commencing 5th February Venue: Cape Byron Steiner School, McGettigans Lane, Ewingsdale Enquiries: Gerry Josephson 0406 788 050
