Knows the Greens and controversy And he’s no stranger to controversy or a Greens council either; he oversaw administration with a Greens-dominated council in the inner-Sydney council that made headlines for its support for the global Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions campaign against Israel. The Sydney Morning Herald (Fairfax) reported in September Council dumped the movement against Israeli products and services in April after widespread criticism from the federal and state governments, business leaders and the Jewish community. Then Greens mayor Fiona Byrne did not contest her seat last September.

Mr Gainger told The Echo that while he understood the sentiment behind the campaign against Israel, he wasn’t surprised by the backlash against the council. ‘Along with councillors, I visited [the Palestinian city] Bethlehem – it’s Marrickville’s sister city – and I was struck by the awful conditions they live under.’ As for the move north, Mr Gainger told The Echo that after seven years in Sydney, it was always going to be temporary. ‘I’ve been a [north coast] resident for 18 years,’ he said, ‘and I’m looking forward to moving back to my house in Bangalow.’ He also said one of the reasons for applying for the job was new mayor Simon Richardson. ‘He seems like a straight-up sort of guy… here in Marrickville, a new mayor is elected every year so I’m looking forward to a bit more stability.’ From 2002 to 2005, Council says he provided consultancy services to local government as principal of Gainger Management Services, and his early background is in environmental health and surveying. It is anticipated that Mr Gainger will commence his new role at the end of January 2013.

Liquor accords campaign against violent behaviour Liquor accords on the north coast have banded together to fund a television campaign to discourage violent behaviour in licensed premises. Byron Bay’s Accord president, Elke van Haandel, who is also general manager of the Beach Hotel, says the campaign will run over the Christmas New Year period on all three commercial TV networks. The accords taking part are Byron Bay, Grafton, Hastings, Lismore and Lower Clarence. ‘The people who operate licensed premises want to see patrons enjoy themselves, but not at the expense of others,’ she says. ‘Particularly during this festive season, many people are out

and about. It’s important that all patrons understand the type of behaviour that is expected of them in licensed premises and also the type of behaviour that won’t be tolerated. People who are drunk, disorderly or violent will be asked to leave premises. ‘If they refuse they are liable to significant fines that can be imposed on the spot by police.’ Elke added, ‘It’s important for visitors to remember that just because they are away from home, this doesn’t mean they are able to behave at a standard lower than they would in licensed premises situated in their home towns.’ The television campaign will conclude after the new year.

A packed audience attended the Frack finding tour documentary at the Mullumbimby Civic Hall last Friday. The film, by Greens MP and mining spokesperson Jeremy Buckingham, follows his journey to the US where he inspected the coal-seam gas industry in operation. It showed the impact of the unconventional-gas industry in places like Texas, Wyoming and Pennsylvania. ‘My recent tour of the United States highlighted the dangers of coal-seam gas and provides

a graphic warning to Australia not to risk this toxic industry dominating our landscapes,’ said Mr Buckingham. He added, ‘The Greens’ Responsible Mining Bill will prohibit coal-seam gas and mining in certain productive agricultural areas and other sensitive areas. ‘Additionally it will provide local councils with the power to prohibit coal-seam gas and other mining in certain areas under their local planning provisions.’

The state governmentâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s failure to endorse traditional Aboriginal fishing and hunting rights was highlighted over the weekend as Aboriginal people of coastal regions protested against NSW Fisheries regulations. â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;We are here this weekend to make a statement to Marine Parks and NSW Fisheries in regards to our natural resource collectionâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;, said Yvonne Stewart speaking on behalf of the Arakwal people of Byron Bay. â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;We believe that the state government really needs to start looking at the needs of Aboriginal people and their access and their rights to their cultural resources.â&#x20AC;&#x2122; Mrs Stewart says that she believes that the local Aboriginals have tried very hard over ten years to find some resolution so that they can manage country and have access to the their resources. She says that the local mob fished and gathered food in the

area over the weekend in protest against Fisheries restrictions. Yvonne says that the midden that the boat ramp at the Pass is built on top of was established about 1500 hundred years ago and is of cultural significance to the Arakwal and other Indigenous people in the area. â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;This place holds our cultureâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;, she said. â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;It tells a story. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s part of who we are. We have been coming to this place for so long. â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;We want to continue to come here and we want to bring all of our jarjums here and exercise our right to go fishing.â&#x20AC;&#x2122;

Current zonings Currently the zoning puts the area, up to the shoreline, from halfway between Clarkes and The Pass, all the way around the cape to the lighthouse in a Sanctuary Zone, a â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;no-takeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; area. This covers the area of shoreline adjacent to the Arakwalâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s midden site under the boat ramp at the Pass. The area from the lighthouse to Kings Beach

in the south and Clarkes to the Belongil at the west is a habitat zone, which means recreational and some forms of commercial fishing and fishing competitions are allowable, though several species are protected within this area. The only areas for general fishing are some distance from the shore and would require access by sea craft.

BEC supportive The Byron Environment Centre (BEC) members and management committee also went on record as supporting the Arakwal Bundjalung people of Byronâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s civil disobedience protest. â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;The BEC supports the Arakwal campaign to allow all Aboriginal people the right to fish and collect seafood for their personal, and their familyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s, consumption, irrespective of any restrictions placed on the wider society, and irrespective of Marine Park or any other zoning restrictionsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;, said convenor of the centre John Lazarus. The Aboriginal people of the

Tweed will hold a protest next weekend and Yvonne hopes that communities up and down the New South Wales seaboard will join in. â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;We ask all communities in NSW to organise their families and community and go out to your favourite fishing grounds and gather, dive, fish and take what ever you need to feed your familyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;, says Yvonne. â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Let your local Fisheries and Marine Parks authority and your local media know in advance what your community and families are planningâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;.

No decision: MP A spokesperson for Ballina MP Don Pageâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s office told The Echo, â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;We have followed up with Minister Hodgkinsonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s office who says that no decision has been made in relation to Arakwal peopleâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s right to access fishing in the Cape Byron Marine Park. Ms Hodgkinsonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s office says the latest representations and protests will be part of that decision-making process.â&#x20AC;&#x2122;

Liberation Larder holds Christmas Day lunch

Farewell your loved one at the

White Dove Chapel

Liberation Larder, the volunteer crew who provide meals for community members from the Byron Bay Community Centre, will be holding a special Christmas Day Lunch at the Fletcher Street Kitchen. Anyone in need of a meal and company on Christmas Day is welcome at 12.30pm. ‘It’s a difficult time of year for many,’ says coordinator Cath Garvan. ‘Many of our community members are without

shelter, food, or company. ‘A few Byron businesses have already committed to giving us Christmas donations, but we still are in need of volunteers to help us prepare and serve the meals.’ Liberation Larder provides meals, bags of food, and outreach meals on Mondays and Thursdays from the Fletcher Street Kitchen of the Byron Community Centre. See more at www.liberationlarder.org.

Christmas makeover for Shire’s public toilets The Suffolk Park sports field public toilets have received a Christmas makeover, along with other public ammenities in the Shire. With new paint, toilet fittings and a wall removed to improve sight lines to discourage graffiti, work on the toilet block has been completed and the doors are open for ‘business’. Mayor Simon Richardson said, ‘Completed in time for the Christmas holidays, the $30,000 vandal repair was greatly needed at this public toilet block.’ As part of a new maintenance program, Council says public amenities will be

checked and repainted where necessary on a regular basis. ‘However, the best vandal prevention is the eyes and ears of the community,’ mayor Richardson said.

Youth artworks ‘If you see any suspicious behaviour or anyone vandalising the toilet block, please call the police or Council rangers immediately. Catching offenders in the act is the best deterrent there is.’ As an anti-graffiti measure, Council over the past two months has installed 30 youth artworks on public buildings and amenities.

The owner of a recently stolen iPhone 3 is appealing for its return as the phone contains pictures of his mother who recently passed away. Ocean Shores resident John O’Connor says that between 6.30 and 7pm on Friday December 14 it went missing from his vehicle at the Brunswick

Heads Fish Co-op. He says he wants at least the sim card back which contains a series of photos of his mother, ‘who passed away in Byron Bay Hospital on Thursday Novemeber 22.’ He says the phone has his name and address on it and his home number is 6680 5035.

Vale Rain Ireland Ilona Harker

On Friday Mullumbimby stood still as the town said farewell to Rain Ireland, who died on Tuesday December 4 in a tragic accident on the highway between Byron and Mullumbimby. The Civic Hall was filled to capacity as hundreds honoured the life of Rain who was just 19. In a profound show of solidarity, many of Rain’s friends wore white and this simple act showed the love and care that the room was experiencing. Rain had been affected by a myriad of health issues since he was 15, yet before that he was raised happily in the Shire by a devoted, loving mother

and a wonderful brother and sisters and stepfathers. Our memories of a vibrant, exceptionally intelligent and curious young man will never be forgotten as he touched the hearts and minds of so many. www.echo.net.au

Bangalow four-storey proposal riles residents Hans Lovejoy

A four-storey development proposed adjacent to the Bangalow A&I Hall has been labelled inappropriate by some residents but the town planner behind it, who is also a resident, has talked up the project saying it is in keeping with the townâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s heritage. The development proposal for 9 Station Street, by Sydneybased developers Gordon Highlands Pty Ltd, will see a fourstorey residential/commercial building with eight dwellings, three shops and basement car parking for eighteen vehicles. It will replace the existing house and garage, and according to the DA information on

Councilâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s website, the work is estimated to cost $3,488,000. Bangalow town planner Paul De Fina, who submitted the DA to Council, told The Echo he welcomes community debate and suggestions on the development. â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;I love Bangalow,â&#x20AC;&#x2122; said Mr De Fina, who is also a member of the Bangalow chamber of commerce, â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;and I have an interest in keeping with the heritage feel for the place.â&#x20AC;&#x2122; â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;The last thing we want is large-scale buildings here.â&#x20AC;&#x2122; He said the designer of the building, Ron Johnson, also designed the new Urban Cafe in Bangalow. â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;The front [of the Station St buiding] will only be two stories, and access will be

from the rear lane, which frees the street up. â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;The apartments are small too; only 55 square metres and itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s zoned commercial. Three storeys with basement parking, below ground level. As for the current dwelling, Mr De Fina says it will be given free to the Bangalow Showground Trust to replace the existing caretakers cottage, which is in need of major repairs.

P&C opposed But resident and former councillor Jenny Coman says she is â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;horrified at the proposed size of the development,â&#x20AC;&#x2122; and wants to see the country village nature of Bangalow preserved, â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;as recommended in

[Councilâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s] Settlement Strategy â&#x20AC;&#x201C;Â which I and other residents took part in developing.â&#x20AC;&#x2122; Additionally, Sue Franklin from Bangalow School P&C says they are opposed because of the additional traffic proposed for the lane next to the school, and are worried about the safety of children. â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;The laneway is already congested at school pickup time and our principal feels the need to walk the children to the end of the laneway for their safety. â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Additionally we have parking problems already. I worry that the Shire is facing off against a strong push from developers. Submissions have been extended past December 24 and is now January 7, 2013.

Reviving for the long holiday drive Story & photo Eve Jeffery

Each holiday season about 220 Driver Reviver Sites open right across Australia.

But Mr Fletcher vigorously disputes that interpretation of events. ‘An interview with the contractor who drove the truck to which Deb Whitley locked on may well give a different picture. Ask him… if he intends to continue doing contract work for Metgasco after his experience on that day, which included meeting in a friendly atmosphere with some of the… ladies who brought him a cup of tea while he sat for three and more hours in his truck. ‘I believe that they were some of the Knitting Nannas from Grafton. Hardly lawless vigilantes!’ He said that ‘Mr Henderson’s ill-chosen words do him no credit and are offensive to the people present on that day, including Deb Whitley, and by implication represents a serious criticism of the police for failing

to deal with “lawless vigilantes”.’ Lock the Gate president Drew Hutton has dismissed the bomb hoax claims as ‘unsubstantiated allegations’. ‘Let [Metgasco] provide the evidence, if there is such behaviour on our part. ‘Until they can do that these sorts of allegations should be treated with contempt,’ he told ABC radio this morning. Last week MP Thomas George claimed that protesters at a meeting with planning minister Brad Hazzard had spat on MPs and bureaucrats as they departed the meeting. But an Echo reporter at the meeting, who followed the ministers from the stage to their car, and an independent filmmaker have both confirmed that they did not observe such an incident.

Campground operator fined

Wilsons Creekâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s new kitchen

Byron Bay resident Allan Arthur Yarrington has copped a substantial fine after pleading guilty to operating an unapproved camping ground in Ewingsdale Road together with a secondary charge of polluting land during the Splendour weekend. Mr Yarrington, who is not associated with Splendour in the Grass, was fined $30,000 and ordered to pay council costs of $26,000 and court costs of $166 in the Byron Bay Local Court last week. Byron Shire Council (BSC) conducted aerial surveillance of the property over concerns that the property might be used as an unapproved camping ground during Splendour.

Whaling wars set to begin From the AAP newsdesk

The federal opposition and the Australian Greens are again calling on the government to send a customs ship to monitor expected clashes between Japanese whalers and conservationists in the Southern Ocean. The Japanese fleet reportedly has left for a reduced whaling

season near Antarctica which is expected to begin at the end of December. Opposition environment spokesman Greg Hunt says an Australian customs vessel could help keep the peace and stop the whaling. Greens whaling spokeswoman Rachel Siewert says Labor should use monitoring vessels and aerial surveillance.

Relations between Tweed Councilâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s senior staff and a Tweed councillor charged under the shireâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s notorious code of conduct for trespassing on a council quarry appear to have completely broken down after the shire manager refused the mayorâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s request for mediation.

The standoff between Cr Gary Bagnall and general manager David Keenan has spread to executive managers who have stopped communicating with Cr Bagnall in the past few days. Attempts by mayor Barry Longland for a mediation on the issue before a code of conduct panel hearing was rejected by GM Keenan.

The joy of reading to the pooch

Waiting to hear the latest story, Lenna and Bill, Brody and Aidan with Sooti and Ebonie, Jemmeka and Karla Albert with Lucy during the Story Dig session at Ocean Shores Public School. Story & photo Eve Jeffery

When children read to dogs the outcomes are amazing. For the children, the experience is non-judgmental and the child’s focus improves while at the same time literacy skills increase and confidence soars – but apart front that it’s just plain fun. Ocean Shores Public School has been running a successful Story Dog program and the kids can’t wait to get to ‘class’ to hang out with the pooches. The school’s Story Dog teams are two of almost 50 in the northern rivers region. Story Dog listener Lenna Kelson, who is the person of Sooti,

says that this is a really exciting program. ‘I get a lot of interaction with the younger children’, she says. ‘We have a very simple mission: to make reading fun for children and to help make children lifelong readers. Karla Albert, who belongs to Lucy, says that the dogs are not bred for the program but are simply family pets. ‘These are our pets and they go through a process of screening and accreditation to make sure they obey basic commands and that they are good with other dogs and of course children. They can get grabbed and climbed on and they remain very calm and relaxed.’ Karla says that the program makes reading fun for

kids. ‘They break their neck to come out and read with us and I have never had that in all the years of home reading.’

Dogs like reading Lenna says that the dogs like to be read to. She says they especially like animals stories. ‘Sometimes the dogs become quite alert and depending on the child’s voice, sometimes they get so relaxed they fall asleep!’ The children are unanimous in there love of their K9 listeners. They love to talk to them, they love to play with them and above all they love to read to them. For more information on Story Dogs, visit the website: www.storydogs.org.au.

TOOT pings MP Page on rail study Lobby group Trains On Our Tracks (TOOT) has called on Ballina MP and minister for the north coast Don Page to tell the community when the feasibility study on the CasinoMurwillumbah train line will be released. ‘According to the government the report is due “by the end of the year”,’ said TOOT president Karin Kolbe. ‘We want to ensure that this report doesn’t get buried over the holiday season.

‘People are asking if the local members are really committed to rail transport. [In the past] local members have committed to rail services. ‘For example on September 15, 2009, Don Page said in a media release “the line should be upgraded, and used for a commuter and light-rail service linking towns and villages in the northern rivers.” ‘The government allocated $2 million for this study in its 2011 budget and we want to en-

sure that this report doesn’t get buried. If the report has been delayed we want to know why.’ A spokesperson for Mr Page told The Echo, ‘We understand it’s in the hands of the consultants. The report then goes to ministers Page and [transport minister] Berejiklian, so there is still time before the break. ‘It will either be in the next few days or early in the new year. When any announcement is made it will come from Ms Berejiklian’s office.’

Discovering the stardust in a ’shroom Microbiologist Paul Stamets claims fungi can outperform conventional medicines and help decompose toxic waste Mandy Nolan

There is little doubt that the Earth and her ecologies are at risk, and now is time for action. While many scientists are scratching their heads unable to provide a workable and fastacting pathway, mycologist Paul Stamets has a radical and simple solution: mushrooms. ‘Mushrooms’, says Stamets, ‘remain a vast resource of new medicines and environmental opportunities.’ According to Stamets, it’s about adopting synergistic mycotechnologies that he believes will jumpstart the healing for people and the planet. ‘Fungi are the foundation of the food web. Habitat and humans share immune systems and fungi are cellular bridges

connecting the two. ‘Fungi erect the humus platform for re-greening our imperiled planet. Humus is the organic material in the soils coming from decomposed flora and fauna that makes the Earth fertile. We need to invest in fungi to create soils and support ecosystems.’ Fungi were the first organisms on land, dating 1.3 billion years. So why have we not been open to the vast resources they offer? Human beings, Stamet believes, suffer from mycophobia: an unrational fear of fungi. ‘If someone dies from eating a mushroom the whole world knows! Mushrooms are ephemeral – the window of exposure is much shorter. Here is something that can feed you, heal you, or kill you or even

get you high. But because they are only in the environment for such a short period of time, it’s natural for people to be fearful, it’s logical to fear the unknown.’ This fear of the unknown has presented itself as a huge opportunity for Stamets, who was recently awarded an honorary Doctor of Science by the National College of Natural Medicine for his academic work (in research and publishing) and the significant contribution he’s made to the field of science for public good. Stamet’s most recent studies and publications focus on a clinical study with breast cancer patients who were given turkey tail mushrooms to augment conventional therapy.

Ashbygate: the law scorns dodgy politics

Volume 27 #28

December 18, 2012

War and peace at Christmas We enter the holiday season having escaped the end of the world that was prophesied for 2012. However, there are still 13 days to go so perhaps we shouldn’t breathe easy yet. Of course breathing easy is the core of any sensible medical or spiritual regime, but even peaceful people cannot help being sickened by the amount of conflict that is going on around the globe. Ideology, politics, statehood and religion underpin most of the bloodletting, and simple territorial or resource envy is also a motive. Some wars are not even civil or foreign; Mexico tears itself apart with drug violence, while the latest atrocity in the USA shows a society that prefers to allow the slaughter of little children rather than face its firearm demons. Australia, although a continent free of war, has not escaped the general hypocrisy that surrounds it, particularly with our treatment of its Indigenous peoples and those seeking refuge from overseas wars we are complicit in. Like Afghanistan and Iraq. There have no doubt been just wars, but there’s a difference between dying for one’s country when it is under attack and dying for confused and unclear aims, or insufficiently examined foreign policies, or simply because we feel obliged to do what another, more powerful, country tells us to do. Then there’s the war that is going on against the world itself, conducted by fossil fuel companies, greedy corporations and carpetbaggers of all kinds. Governments have put on hold funds for renewable power sources while they collude with mining companies to extract the last profitable joule of energy from fossil fuels, with devastating consequences to the environment. As this planet’s inhabitants and dependants we face the new year with the knowledge that peace seems more elusive than ever. Wise men have always said that peace is indivisible, that war begins in the heart, that hatred is never ended by hatred, but only by love. Our problems are complex, and difficult beyond belief; nevertheless, the best counsel is still breathe easy and enjoy the moment. David Lovejoy

Dear Man, You are the active pole on earth and needed like the sun – shining with honest care, in love, on to a woman. She is like the earth – she receives, she gives, she knows. We are this beautiful life. In this self-made world man learned to show off, it is easy for you but are you brave enough to stand up for love? Be true – be simple and give your honest love and care and make sweetly and rightly love to her. It is a woman’s delight and need to grow with you and glow in love. It is your most fulfilling task. For this to be, you will have to give up selfish, restless sex. Be still, drop your demand, enjoy moment to moment life. Love life. Do you excite yourself with sex-thought? It overstimulates you. It makes you dishonest in love, so you just take, but you should ask and learn to give right love. We are influenced as a child... take a drug, get used to sex, be sexy, show off, be greedy, give your attention to the newest invention, get excited... nothing will be good enough for long and such greediness supports the sex business. Worldwide he manipulates young women to play sexy for him, to be his sex object and if she makes sex with such a selfish demanding ungiving man it makes her like him. Infected and made discontent, both feel dependent on stimulation, for in truth they have not made love and so they say ‘let’s have some fun with a drug...’ Hey man, give up, you can’t just take what you want, you can’t just take love! You have to give to a woman. Life’s love is her gift to you, if you have earned it. A woman today can be honest to man. If he is not honest, do not give to him, wait until he demonstrates true love. If you are honest, moment to moment and give to what is good and right, you simply feel well from the inside. With such a woman of love, you will listen to her carefully. Love is easily broken, it has to be made fresh, new, no other body belongs to you. Each of us has to stand up for love. Life felt inside is reflected in beautiful earth, universe – I belong to you. From a Woman.

A

ustralia’s Watergate? Well, probably not. Anthony Albanese and Mike Kelly are getting ahead of themselves in comparing the Ashby-Brough fiasco with the criminal conspiracy that ultimately brought down the most powerful man on earth. Although the tragic farce surrounding Peter Slipper has been deceitful, treacherous, vicious, totally unethical and immeasurably sleazy, it is unlikely to have the earth-shaking consequences of its American predecessor. But having said that, it should be noted that both affairs went beyond what would normally be condoned by society, or even the law. Watergate began with an actual crime, the break-in and robbery at the headquarters of the Democrat Party, and James Ashby deliberately abstracted the contents of Slipper’s private diary and sent them to his political opponent. This has not yet resulted in charges being laid, but the case has a way to run yet. Even so, ask the cynics among the political insiders, the media and large sections of the public, so what? So a bunch of politicians and their mates indulged in a conspiracy – well, isn’t that what politicians do? Run plots against their enemies and rivals (the difference purely one of terminology)? Labor Party politics is based on unedifying factional power plays and even Malcolm Turnbull, that model of Liberal rectitude, masterminded the mother of all branch stacks to gain preselection in his seat of Wentworth over the incumbent Peter King. Tony Abbott’s career has been littered with conspiracies: he was the one who hawked stories of Cheryl Kernot’s sex life around the press gallery and memorably intrigued with Peter Coleman and Piers Akerman to destroy Pauline Hanson. Surely the only sin is in getting caught. But while that is unfortunately

true of Australian politics up to a point, there was one big difference in the current case, and that is that it involved the courts. Politicians are expected to play their games on their own turf, and not attempt to encroach on the judicial system. In this context it is noteworthy that nearly all those mentioned in the case – Peter Slipper, James Ashby, Slipper aide Karen Doane, Mal Brough, LNP president Bruce McIver, state minister Mark McArdle,

tulated, had been overwhelmed by the real motives, which were purely political. Coming from a seasoned and respected judge, there could hardly have been a more comprehensive put-down. And Rares reserved some of his harshest criticism for Slipper’s legal guru, the very high profile Michael Harmer, for what he termed ‘scandalous’ conduct of the case. Harmer, predictably, rejected the rebuke and is apparently encourag-

by Mungo MacCallum David Russell QC, Clive Palmer – are Queenslanders. As Joh Bjelke-Petersen repeatedly showed, he and his fellow banana benders have always had a problem with the doctrine of the separation of powers, the inviolable constitutional premise which guarantees that the three arms of government, the executive, the legislature and the judiciary all have their distinct and independent role and none of them may interfere with the other two. As soon as Ashby and his co-conspirators crossed that line by lodging a statement of claim in the Federal Court, they were taking on forces over which they had no control and ones which were instinctively sceptical about political gameplaying, and who would deeply resent any attempt to use them as part of it. Judge Steven Rares, who is not a Queenslander, made no secret of his unhappiness at being dragged into what he saw as an abuse of process by both the plaintiff and his legal-public relations team. Any merit the case may have had, he expos-

friends with money: two of the most prominent are the Liberal Party of Australia and News Ltd. But for either of those to produce a cheque book would be an admission that Rares was quite right – the whole thing is indeed a political conspiracy, a stitch-up to hurt Slipper, advantage Brough and boost Tony Abbott’s quest for an election. And any third party who suddenly bobbed up would be subject to minute scrutiny to see if there was even the faintest suggestion of a hidden connection or an ulterior motive. And that’s the other problem with ignoring the separation of powers: while political plotting can often be done on the cheap, those involving lawyers can’t. Whatever advice Ashby is getting from Harmer, he may find it a lot less costly to listen to his fellow Liberals, the smartest of whom will be telling him to cop it sweet, take a long holiday and hope, as they do, that the whole thing will fade away during the silly season. It’s already been a huge unearned bonus for Julia Gillard and her embattled government. Tony Abbott will fervently want it dead, buried and cremated before the election year proper gets under way. The whole sorry business has already produced quite enough unintended consequences. And interestingly, the politician who showed the most perspicacity throughout the whole sorry saga was another Queenslander, Barnaby Joyce, who opined early in the piece that Ashby looked almost as shonky as Slipper. If only his commonsense was applied more widely, we could have avoided not only Ashbygate but perhaps even Watergate as well.

ing Ashby to lodge and appeal against the judgment. This prospect is providing a useful shield for opposition, and in particular Tony Abbott, Joe Hockey and Christopher Pyne, all of whom were, according to a gleeful government, heavily involved in the conspiracy from the beginning. But the idea of an appeal has also amplified the cries of that old political poser: ‘Where’s the money coming from?’ which, one suspects, is the last question Ashby will want to answer, because it is hardly likely to be from his own pockets. Harmer and his pricey PR side kick Anthony McClellan apparently appeared on a no-win, no-fee basis so that’s okay – for the moment. But the barristers didn’t and Rares has ordered Ashby to pay Slipper’s costs as well. Ashby has the $50,000 he got from the Commonwealth prematurely settling the case to fall back on, but even if that is enough to pay his current expenses, it certainly won’t cover Q See Mungo live at an appeal; which is where his personal Catch 22 comes in. Ashby undoubtedly has www.echonetdaily.net.au

Minor tweaking To those people who objected to DA10.2012.149.1, ie 27 Station Street, the revised plans are on exhibition at the Council Chambers. My reading of these plans is that there has been some minor tweaking concerning screens and louvres to alleviate privacy issues from the second-floor balconies. This development is still totally inappropriate for this site. The bulk and scale of this development is still there. Please contact your councillors as this issue has shirewide ramifications.

Cheap shot It was disappointing to see The Australian newspaper (11/12/12) publish what was, in my eyes, a pretty cheap shot by an â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;unnamed Belongil activistâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; bemoaning the fact that the Cornells will benefit from their upcoming sale of their Belongil property when they hadnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t contributed to the fighting fund against Councilâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s planned retreat policy. I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t know the Cornells, but I do know that without their support (and other communityminded people) it is unlikely we would have a near new functioning community centre. It is probably also fair to say that without the support of the Cornells a number of other community groups would also struggle (even more than they do) to provide valuable community services. A more balanced (and accurate) view might have recognised the massive contribution the Cornells have made to the Byron community.

Refuse to serve any person connected with these firms. Refuse to purchase from any business that supplies or deals with them in any way. It is time to choose a side. The good cop/bad cop merry-goround political parties have sold their souls to the miners; we must decide what to do with ours. We can decide where we shop, who we trade with. The community can identify those who trade with Metgasco, its employees, its supporters. Refuse to refuel their vehicles. Refuse to buy petrol from a supplier who serves them. A blacklist is required. In strategic terms, this is cutting their supplies and communications. Who sells them power? Who serves them lunch? Who cleans their houses? Shut their gates. This is a fight for existence. We must win. Matt Hartley

Uplifting? Uplift... We Are The One... Really? Now I may be a cynical cow when it comes to this sort of sugar coated, self-important spiritual drivel, but seriously? â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;An invitation for all of us to create a space where the collective Heart Wisdom and Consciousness can reveal a new paradigm.â&#x20AC;&#x2122; Ah, how lovely, except by â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;allâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; they mean the spiritually elite who have a spare few hundred dollars (no concessions, so sorry all ye povos!) Yes, we have the family day which contains some sensible, worthwhile speakers, but $380/$480? In an impressive lineup of 13 keynote presenters, flown in from all over the world (think of the air miles!), just two are Aboriginal.

I am sure theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re all very lovely and fabulously knowledgeable but three and a half hours out of over 90 (not including musicians) presented from the original custodians of our land? Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s embarrassing. Were they not consulted or not impressed? Thankfully, we have the sunrise ceremony which is open to all, as seemingly, our Indigenous friends donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t wish to profit from the betterment of our planet or â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;the birth of a new paradigm of consciousnessâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;. What a shame. Dawn Blackwell

Not finger-lickinâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; good Nick Gazzard makes the point (Letters, December 11) that Byron Bay already has many global chains, so we canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t really object to KFC. I think we can. KFC, McDonaldâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s, and Pizza Hut are widely known as the â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;big threeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; of superchains. They are often criticised because of the effect of their foods on public health. To allow any of these in Byron Bay would be a huge step downwards for our townâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s image and appeal. Besides, it all seems so mean and unfair. Thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a story in the Bible of a poor man who had one ewe lamb. The rich man had hundreds of sheep of all kinds, but nonetheless, he came and took away the poor manâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s beloved ewe. Australia has one town, Byron Bay, with no KFC, and hundreds of towns with KFCs. Why does this superchain have to be so superdominating that it has to come here as well as everywhere else? What is the logic that makes them want to push their product here when they already have dominated every other town of any size in Australia? I hope the people of Byron Bay will rise up and flood the council chambers and the pages of our newspapers with hundreds of letters in opposition to this mean and unfair imposition on our town.

Israelâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s iniquities Mr Alhadeff says that Israel has no quarrel with the people of Gaza (Letters, December 11) and yet, as Israeli historian Ilan Pappe points out, Israelis often refer to Gaza as meâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;arat nachashim, a snake pit. He quotes former Israeli finance minister Pinchas Sapir who, in June 1967 said, â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Gaza is the problem, I was there in 1956 and saw venomous snakes walking in the street...â&#x20AC;&#x2122; (Out of the Frame: The Struggle for Academic Freedom in Israel, pp167â&#x20AC;&#x201C;168). Mr Alhadeff continues: â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Israel makes no apology for doing whatever it can to protect its civiliansâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;. Note the omission of any reference to international law which is accurate, because the Israeli Occupation Force, dubbed by Israel as the most moral army in the world, used its precision bombs (with a circle error probably of only a couple of metres) to destroy the United Nations Works and Relief Agency warehouse during Operation Cast Lead and then, on July 25, 2006, in South Lebanon, it finished off four unarmed UN peacekeepers in an airstrike after their post had been shelled 14 times over six hours. Repeated transmissions of their GPS coordinates to the Israeli military, who promised their safety, were spurned. With an attitude and a record like this, Mr Alhadeff â&#x20AC;&#x2122;s attempts to lay the blame for Gazaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s civilian casualties on Hamas are fatuous. Gareth W R Smith

Letters/Articles continued from page 17 and would like to hear whether or not he intends to hold himself to the same rigorous standards he so stridently propounds for everyone else. My real issue is the notion of selective compliance and the belief that if you have lived in Byron for many years you are entitled to special treatment or to ignore regulations that simply don’t suit you and be free from council oversight. How can local government be expected to function if the same people who agitate the loudest for strict council enforcement of one regulation are also the loudest protesters when another regulation doesn’t fit their own self-interest? Over to you, Mr Buck$. Are you being unfairly misjudged? Are your own activities 100 per cent compliant or are you still ‘special’? Ian Gow

They came bearing a gift as good as gold John Campbell

As a little kid, the idea of Santa seemed totally bogus – we didn’t have a chimney for him to come down at Tempe for starters. Nor was I convinced by the Baby Jesus and Holy Mother story. Virginity needed to be delicately explained to me when I heard about the immaculate conception and, to be honest, I didn’t have a clue what a manger was either while singing that our tiny Saviour was away in one. Nonetheless, the nativities painted by Raphael, Fra Angelico and Piero della Francesca inspire me to this day, for I grew up without the breast-beating fervour of the crusader atheist. But for this unreconstructed materialist, Christmas is and always has been about giving and receiving presents. The excitement of getting brand new stuff remains undiminished since my broiling child’s brain registered Chrissy as a time of dripping humidity, shark attacks and lousy TV. That’s why I’m not fazed by Christmas shopping. I figure it’s a classic case of ‘as ye give, so shall ye receive’ (I hoard Biblical quotes, too). My insatiable narcissism also sees the ritual as incontrovertible evidence that, for at least one fleeting moment while they were wandering around K-Mart or the local ABC

shop, somebody was thinking of me. When it all began, on those distant boisterous eves of December 24, after the elders had got dutifully legless, my brother and I would lie awake in bed like meth-crazed rodents, impatient for daybreak and the prezzies it promised. Weaponry always topped our wish list. Tinny six-shooters with formica ivory handles and a narrow coil of paper imprinted with black dots that exploded when

struck by the revolver’s hammer were a must-have in the local arms race. Bows and arrows tipped with rubber suction-cap heads were essential when reenacting the Little Big Horn. We spent the whole of one Boxing Day kitted out as Sioux warriors – which is to say, we tied a rag around our head and stuck chook feathers in it – chasing cousin Zin around the neighbourhood. Her survival without losing an eye was, in hindsight, nothing short of miraculous. Moving from the Great Plains

to GI Joe mode, the following year we woke up to pumpaction tommy guns. They had transparent plastic barrels and shot ping-pong balls at blinding speed over a distance of at least ten yards – we’d managed to lose all of them before the week was out. The pimply teenage era was highlighted by vinyl LPs. As gifts that no amount of inventive wrapping could disguise, the eager opening of them all too regularly resulted in dashed expectations. Whatever possessed Auntie Pearl to buy Herb Alpert and the Tijuana Brass for me, I’ll never know, but, strangely enough, I wish I still had it. There followed the terminal period of everybody’s last-ditch, fail-safe option; books. Sadly, the odds are lengthening with each passing Yule that my sister will find something that I might actually want to read before either of us carks it. One door-stop volume of Bryce Courtenay was daunting enough, two is punishing testament to the disingenuous gratitude I showed upon accepting the first. Only lately has it dawned on me that the titles she chooses are payback for all of those crappy bars of perfumed soap that I keep giving her. So you can imagine how narked I am by the current trend of high-minded wowsers

deciding that they will save the planet by not indulging in such exploitative consumerism. Especially after the unique – I’d go so far as to call it priceless – gift I received from an unlikely source last December. My nephew and niece come up from Sydney in the summer school hols. They trash the house, bug the cat, take halfhour showers, eat everything in the fridge etc, etc. You know the score. How taken aback I was, how blessed I felt by their humble offering. I reckon that they must have picked it out themselves, free of the guidance from sensible Mum. Cheap, unbreakable and gloriously grotesque, it had all the hallmarks of them adhering to the frowned-upon but most sincere approach to present giving – they found me something that they wanted themselves. It was an aqua bottle-opener in the form of a great white pointer, with jaws agape. Howard Carter could not have been more delighted than I when he discovered the gold mask of Tutankhamun. We beamed at each other spontaneously. Love embraced us. Never mind that I haven’t bought a bottle of beer that wasn’t a screw-top in yonks – the thing doesn’t work anyway. It’s the thought that counts.

Performing random acts of good has its own rewards Mandy Nolan

In America last week a woman was given 20 hoursâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; community service for cleaning someoneâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s house. Without being asked. Or let in. Turns out she was bored so she broke into a house down the street and did a load of washing, scrubbed the floors, washed the dishes,

rang the cops. What a bunch of losers, reporting a breakand-tidy! Now this is the stuff of fairy tales. I do recall a certain flaxen-skinned Snow White entering a dirty little out-of-the-way hovel and finding its contents so appalling she was forced to perform a spot of spring cleaning with nothing more than a damp cloth, a squirrel and a few bluebirds. At least our cleaning products have improved. (Although I havenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t been able to find a cleaning squirrel anywhere. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve been forced to use the cat and it just doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t get into the corners.) Fortunately Show White had stumbled on a house full of men capable of expressing gratitude rather than fear. Those seven dwarfs knew they were onto a good thing, and who knows where her acts of goodly charity would end! When a beautiful woman breaks in and cleans your pad, you go with it. You just hope that at some point sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll offer to wash you as well. â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Hey love, put that squirrel down and come over here. Thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s something very dirty down my trousers!â&#x20AC;&#x2122; I once had a friend who loved mowing. It was like a meditation for him. Looking back I think he might have been a bit Aspergers. Once heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d done his own lawn heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d have this long wait before the thick waft of two-stroke once again filled his nostrils. This idea of lawn ownership seemed arbitrary to him â&#x20AC;&#x201C; if a lawn needed mowing, then why not mow it? To Mow or Not to Mow? He mowed.

So when people were at work heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d pop over the fence and mow their lawn. More often than not, it made people angry and suspicious. Okay, so he liked to do it in the nude. But apart from that it was benign. A nude man in work boots couldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t really be doing something for nothing? There had to be motivation. He must be coming back at night looking through the windows masturbating. Surely he was just cutting himself a clear path to the back step? A long-haired lawn screams out that the occupants either donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have a mower, or time, or both. But itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s just so hard to believe a random act of good on its face value in a world plagued with sinister

a bit rich coming from me, but Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m prepared to give it a shot. The funny thing about performing random unexpected acts of good is that it actually makes you feel good too. Who would have thought that giving had fringe benefits? I tried to explain this to my adolescent daughters who seemed unconvinced that doing something for anyone else could benefit them in anyway. So I decided to help them by donating their iPhones to the homeless bloke I found going through their room yesterday. As they wept over their terrible loss, I tried to help them reframe. I said â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t worry darlings, being good will help us move to a higher vibration. We are all one.â&#x20AC;&#x2122; Then I went into my room and checked no-one had touched my stuff. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m not quite ready to evolve just yet. But Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m happy to assist those who are.

The world would be a better place if people performed random acts of good instead of the usual nastiness of violence, assault, theft, murder etc. Instead of a carjacking, you could have your car stolen, but have it returned after a detailing and a cut and polish. Graffiti artists could turn themselves to public parks and do a spot of gardening. Serial killers could stop focusing on the easy prey of harmless ordinary people and get rid of a few bent politicians or corporate moguls. Most of us operate in selfinterest.

The game rules are changing on ownership of the world Mary Gardner

How many rainy holidays have you spent playing Monopoly? Remember making deals, bickering and double checking the rules? Did you ever get uneasy, somehow, with this game glorifying economic domination? So that’s you, me and Elizabeth Magie, an American Quaker. She invented the game in 1902 as a teaching tool about capitalism. She called her version The Landlord’s Game. Players saw the inequities of private ownership of land and were introduced to the economic al-

ternatives proposed by Henry George. This American writer suggested that, rather than wages, land value should be taxed and this income shared throughout society. So how did the original game change so much? What ever happened to the old rules? In the 19th century, land grabs were standard practice in large parts of the United States, Australia and New Zealand, to name only a few places. Governments supported monopolies. At the same time, social justice was stirring and heaving. From

labourers to slaves, including women, children and domestic animals – all were gaining new rights which transformed their lives. Anti-trust laws arose. Active in these social and legal reforms were the Quakers. They, among others, even questioned the ethics of owning land as individuals rather than as a community. For even then, careful observers saw structural patterns behind the social misery and environmental destruction occurring around the world. This was intensified when in 1819, the US courts granted corporations legal personhood. For two hundred years, this legal privilege has been used by corporate executives to develop business regardless of impact, heedless of any check or balance. Countermovements (environmental, political and educational) struggle but only manage to slow down the widespread harm. Today, facing runaway climate change, observers and citizens alike are frustrated and despairing. But around the world, the game rules are changing. In 2008, Ecuador’s new constitution gave legal rights to Mother Nature. This year, Bolivia’s Assembly is writing legal rights for Pachamama, the Andean expression of Mother Earth. In

August, as part of the Treaty settlement for Maori in Aotearoa /New Zealand, the Whangaui River was acknowledged as a new legal person, Te Awa Tupua (an integrated, living whole). In the USA, this uprising of indigenous values is matched by a new grass-roots democratic initiative. Since 2009, 78 local councils in Pennsylvania passed ordinances that ban environmentally destructive corporations such as hog farming, sludge disposal on farmland and fracking. The councils, including the City of Pittsburgh, cite their right to protect their

<echowebsection=Articles>

citizens against harm and their right to self-governance. In the words of their lawyer Thomas Linzey, cofounder of the Community Environmental Legal Defence Fund, ‘townships and boroughs [are] writing their own local ordinances [to] read like constitutions.’ For example, laws in Spokane, Washington state, assert ‘ecosystems, including but not limited to, all groundwater systems, surfacewater systems, and aquifers have the right to exist and flourish.’ Barnstead (NH) writes ‘natural communities and ecosystems possess inalienable and fundamental

rights to exist and flourish within the Town of Barnstead’. Linzey describes a growing movement of local communities reclaiming their power and challenging the legal structure that favours alliances of corporations and state government. Experience and techniques are shared through communityorganised National Democracy Schools (www.celdf.org, www. celdf.org. Also hear Linzey at www.filmsforaction.org.) All this is from a new legal arena called Wild Law. In 1996, Christopher Stone first asked ‘What would a radically different law-driven consciousness look like?... one in which Nature had rights?’ In 2001, geologian Thomas Berry proposed Earth Jurisprudence and now at the close of 2012 the international Earth Law Centre is celebrating its first year of action. The game rules are changing everywhere. Ralph Anspach, economics professor, now publishes Anti-Monopoly, raising the play to a new level. The Parker Brothers corporation claimed their man Charlie Darrow invented Monopoly and sued. But they lost as Anspach exposed the true Quaker and educational origins of the game. The new rules are online at UniversityGames.com. Next time it rains, teach your kids.

Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m continually amazed by the fact that Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve lived in Byron Shire for decades and can still go to parties where I hardly know anyone. Maybe I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t go to that many parties but there are circles within circles, ones that overlap and still others that only sight each other in passing, if at all. For a relatively small region it manages to convey a feeling of bigness, true to the sign on the way in to Mullumbimby. Working as Echonetdailyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s video journalist for over a year now, Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m like a mini Australian Story crew in one. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m required to monitor focus and sound levels, framing and exposure, while engaging my subject. Probably the biggest challenge is holding the camera still while Mandy Nolan performs her hilarious weekly Soapbox. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve documented a multitude of events held by community groups all over the Byron area, as well in the Tweed, Ballina

and Lismore shires. Despite any reservations I may have to start with (and pushing past my natural shyness), I am often surprised by how engrossed I become inside each circle. Be it a naked bike ride or a vintage car meet, these worlds range from the eclectic to the conventional and are invariably fascinating. Sometimes the camera does get in the way and people close down when I turn up, but more often than not they allow me to focus my lens on them. Without exception I find passionate, devoted, inspired, talented and opinionated people, and everyoneâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s got a story to tell. It harks back to my days attending Mullumbimby High School. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d acquired my first 35mm stills camera at the age of 14 and used to stalk the sporting events, honed to catch interesting or usual moments. The disused darkroom at the end of the woodwork block

was kindly given to me to use by one of the maths teachers, and thanks to the tutelage of local photographer Nick Poutsma I was able to develop and print my negatives during lunch break or free periods. (Or when I skipped class â&#x20AC;&#x201C; shh!) Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d then post the best shots on a board, numbered so that students could order from me. I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t recall it blossoming into much of a business venture, but wandering around my community with a camera was certainly a role I took to early on in life. Perhaps itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a cover for latent introversion, or simply chronic voyeurism, but all these years later Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m elated to be employed in it. Even if itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s questionable to be comfortable having a camera between me and the world, Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m enthralled by the same thing that seized my imagination back in high school, and which is even more explicit

with the moving image â&#x20AC;&#x201C; how evocative the captured moments are. Framing life, then evoking emotional responses through the use of strategic editing and music, has got to be the ultimate storytelling buzz. The YouTube channel echonetvideo exists as a sort of community time capsule that is being added to on a weekly basis, now burgeoning with those events that Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve been witness to. With so many circles in this big little area, a quandary often presents itself: how to choose, for example, between the consecration of a rare Buddhist stupa, a living-soil festival at the community gardens, a surf festival or a rally to assert the right of women to be safe? Given that itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s impossible to cover the plethora of events on an average weekend, I content myself with what my grandmother used to say: â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;You can only sit on your tuchus at one wedding.â&#x20AC;&#x2122;

Miss Elizabeth Bennet and the flesh-eating zombies It is a truth universally acknowledged that an author in search of a plot idea invariably turns to a parody of the works of Jane Austen. â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Septimus Brooch Whether the final blow comes from flesh-eating zombies, demonic hell beasts or from the total triumph of K-pop, if you know one thing about me it is this: I will always fight for you to the very end. â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Julia Gillard (http://bit.ly/UGj0S2) Michael McDonald

The news that Netherfield Park had been let, apparently to a single man in possession of a good fortune and a collection of white shirts which became diaphanous when immersed in water, travelled throughout the village at the speed of wildfire or a lively dose of the cholera.

Mr Bennet, a man of astonishing patience, was the recipient of the news through the vehicle of his wife, who, for the umpteenth time, suggested that this may be another means to shuck off one of the many daughters which hovered around them uselessly like vinegar flies. While entertaining the pleasant thought that his wife might be sold to Chinese slavers and the rest of his life devoted to his bumblebee collection, Mr Bennet politely suggested that the new inhabitant of Netherfield Park might not be considered the rightful property of Bennet-spawn or, in fact, might be gay. Following a fit of nervous conniptions accompanied by the inhalation of smelling salts laced with ketamine, Mrs Bennet pressed on with her relent-

less attack on her husband, until he gave in to the inevitable. â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;You have my permission, my dear, to send young Elizabeth to visit the gentleman, who must already be beleaguered by a bushel of eligible ladies. She, at least, has a brain, which may be of interest to him.â&#x20AC;&#x2122; Young Lizzy gracefully gave in to her parentsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; demands, although her heart was set on completing her invention of a new science which she thought she might call â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Quantum Mechanicalsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;. She had been working on a theory which involved a dead â&#x20AC;&#x201C; or not-dead â&#x20AC;&#x201C; cat in a box, but that now must wait until she completed her familial duty. She took off at a brisk pace towards Netherfield Park, the hem of her long dress neither soiled by mud nor torn by burrs, a remarkable feature of the 19th century novel. Having trained undercover with the Meryton 15 second-grade, and indeed scored the winning try in the semi-final, Miss Bennet arrived without a perturbation to her lungs at the Netherfield manor front door, which opened of its own accord before she had time to knock upon it. Indeed, the man who stood at the threshold wore a white shirt, beneath which the pectoral muscles bulged and writhed

like puppies in a sack. Miss Bennet, who eschewed all notions of a romantic nature in favour of empirical enquiry, found her heart jumping involuntarily in her not-insubstantial chest, made more insufferable by the restrictions of her Empire-line bodice. It reminded her of the ligaments of a frog she had dissected being stimulated by a phlogistic current.

Having introduced himself as a Mr Darcy, the brooding gentleman at the door, who seemed to have some sort of plasma attached to his unkempt hair, failed to invite Miss Bennet indoors or indeed inquire about the nature of her visit. She found this to be a peculiar lack of manners and was then singularly surprised when he lunged towards her

face, hissing hoarsely â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Brains!â&#x20AC;&#x2122; Accustomed to the brawling scrums of the Meryton 15, Miss Bennet deftly skipped aside, at the same time employing a trick of the venerable art of JiuJitsu, taught by Miss Han at the Lambton Spinsters Academy of Martial Arts, to turn Mr Darcy upon his head. This is a den of zombies, she thought. Her conjecture was supported by a glimpse into the dark interior of the manor, where even now a host of the undead shuffled towards her, sadly lusting after the contents of her cranium. She turned swiftly upon her heel, confident that she would easily outrun the seething tide of decomposing humanity. Her first thought was to raise the alarum so that her family and the inhabitants of Meryton might escape the danger. However wicked it may be regarded by the arbiters of the moral heights, her second thought was to alert only her father, with whom she might escape to a quiet, reason-based life in the heathers of Scotland, and leave her sisters, mad mother, and the unbearable population of simpering young women to their fate, if, indeed, the zombies were capable of digesting them. This she resolved to do and proceeded rapidly to carry out her intentions.

HOLDSWORTH HOUSE MEDICAL PRACTICE

Victoria Cosford

It first forcibly struck me up at GOMA. There we were, our favourite Brisbane art gallery, having patiently queued to see the Ron Mueck exhibition, released at last into the various rooms housing his spectacular, hyper-real sculptures. Except that, constantly blocking our vision, there were walls of iPhones held aloft like trophies by practically every other visitor. For the work entitled In Bed, a vast woman lying under a sheet, looking pensive, this was less offensive â&#x20AC;&#x201C; but for the poignant half-human-size old lady draped in blankets, asleep, the situation became ludicrous as I ducked and dipped in and out and under all these bloody phones. This is so sad: people are increasingly incapable of experiencing something, be it an art gallery or a concert or a restaurant meal or travel or nature, unless through the filter of a camera. As if the experience itself is meaningless until it is recorded or documented via a photograph or an instant message to a social network. I am aware that I am hypocritical in my indignation, that I too have often sat in restaurants taking photos of a particularly artistic or drool-able dish â&#x20AC;&#x201C; that, indeed, I have been documenting all my life, as evidenced by the entire bookcase devoted to photo albums dating back to my early teens. But this trend is different,

The Echoâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s daily news service is easy to read on your mobile! and a little sinister. Is it a form of mental laziness, whereby we simply do not need to merely gaze at an object of beauty and absorb it and thereby imprint it â&#x20AC;&#x201C; no apparatus required â&#x20AC;&#x201C; on our memories? Allow it to feed our imaginations, or fire our imaginations? Perhaps we simply do not require imagination or memory any longer. And then thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the additional, modern need to share â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Facebook being the obvious vessel here â&#x20AC;&#x201C; which might suggest that, unless our experience is communicated to someone

else, it doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t count; we didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t even really have it. A friend told me about a trip to Tasmania he took with his wife. At the beginning of a track which would bear them upward to majestic scenery they encountered a couple of middle-aged women; one of them was pleading tiredness. â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;But you go aheadâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;, she urged her companion, â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;and I can always look at the photos later.â&#x20AC;&#x2122; The first time I saw Michelangeloâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s David in Florence â&#x20AC;&#x201C; the real one, not the many imitations â&#x20AC;&#x201C; I burst into tears.

Standing before this sublime work of art, so famous it is almost a cliche, I was utterly undone by it. That visceral moment, thirty years ago, is so perfectly etched in my memory that there was no need to take a photograph â&#x20AC;&#x201C; to even jot down my thoughts. It is this human capacity to observe, solitarily or in company, and connect, and appreciate, and consider, which, it seems to me, is being lost. Possibly out of the fear that, unless documented, our lives are as inconsequential as they probably are.

of more use to you if the world does end. Mayanists, the world is supposed to end at the end of a thousand years – pick one, any one, though the year 2000 would have done. This is generally known as ‘millennialism’, belief in the Christian doctrine of the millennium in which Christ reigns on Earth for a thousand years before the end of the world, sometimes known as chiliasm – which, unfortunately, is not the orgasm to be had at the end of a particularly good enchilada.

thousand-year reign after only 11 years as boss (John Howard managed 12), and Theosophist Alice A Bailey reckoned Christ, aka Maitreya, would usher in the Aquarian bimillennium ‘sometime after AD 2025’, so stand by for that. Bailey, who brought us the love-filled notion of the Age of Aquarius, also wrote, ‘People complain (and it is frequently true) the Jews lower the atmosphere of any district in which they reside. They hang their bedding and their clothing out of the windows. They live on the

As with most New Age theories, the 2012 Mayanism is a little slow off the mark for anyone who has a passing knowledge of disasterology. In the Book of Revelation, John of Patmos, either sleepdeprived, schizophrenic, or on heavy medication, points out that ‘when the thousand years have expired, Satan will be released from his prison and will go out to deceive the nations which are in the four corners of the earth, Gog and Magog, to gather them together to battle, whose number is as the sand of the sea’. Zoroastrianism had the ‘millennialism’ thing on track at least a thousand years before Christianity. According to Wikipedia, ‘Zoroastrian tradition envisions three future saviours, one for the end of each 1,000-year period that comprise the last 3,000 years of the world. All three will be born of maidens, conceived while their mothers bathed in a lake that miraculously preserved the seed of the prophet Zoroaster himself. The first will be named Hushedar, the second Hushedarmah, and the third will be Saoshyant, who will lead humanity in the final battle against falsehood.’ There you go. Closer to our time, Adolf Hitler bombed out on his plans to be the messiah of a

streets, sitting in groups on the sidewalks.’ What else could you expect from a lass trying to rebel against her aristocratic British upbringing? Throughout all of the thousand years there have been all kinds of fruitloops who have prophesied the end of the world and even convinced their followers to kill themselves in order to enter heaven or as a better option to lakes of fire. Don’t believe a word of it. We don’t need prophets or gods to end the world. We have the nuclear bomb and global warming and general environmental disasters like a large volcano exploding. In truth, these may only end a world with humans on it. The bacteria will do just fine and some of them will figure out again how to use chlorophyll to recycle solar energy, at least until the sun burns out five billion years from now. Perhaps we amuse ourselves with fanciful visions of apocalypse because we know the world – as we know it – will end for each of us, regardless of what the next thousand years bring. Pass me another enchilada and a martini. www.echo.net.au

C O A S T A L

They Call Him Mellow Cello

E N T E R T A I N M E N T

SO YOU THOUGHT THE CELLO WAS A SEDATE INSTRUMENT, MEANT ONLY FOR THE ORCHESTRA? WELL THINK AGAIN. KENTUCKY CELLIST AND VOCALIST BEN SOLLEE HAS BEEN CHANGING MINDS ALL AROUND THE WORLD WITH HIS FOOT-TAPPING INDIE-TINGED SOULFUL FOLK. MAN AND INSTRUMENT ARE FRONT OF STAGE AND IT IS DOWNRIGHT THRILLING! Why the cello? What is it about your instrument that is unique? The cello has stuck with me through the years because of its versatility. It’s like the Swiss Army Knife of the orchestra: it can cover harmony, textures and rhythm while having a massive melodic range. In so many ways, it’s the perfect McGyver-like tool for a songwriter such as myself. With this instrument I can have it all. The cello is an instrument that to date hasn’t really strayed too far from the orchestra (unlike big brother the double bass or little sister violin). Why do you think that is?  I’m not entirely sure. Its strength in versatility may keep it from being singled out. In other words, the need for tonal foundation demands the bass. The desire for clear, definitive melody falls to the violin. The cello can do all those things but is not absolutely necessary. But, flexibility and multi-function is a requisite in contemporary music and, for my money, there is no better instrument for the job.  What about you – did you come from a more traditional/orchestral background? I studied classical throughout high school and college, eventually earning my BA in cello performance from the University of Louisville. However, I started touring with blues bands and bluegrass ensembles when I was in high school so I’ve nearly always found myself bending between skill sets. The sound of orchestras is something I miss and they can have the social atmosphere. What to you are the key elements of a good song/compostiion? Oh gosh, there’s so many ways to approach a song. I would say, for me, the song must move in a way that fits the character. The momentum of the music must match the narrative. Can you tell me a little about your songwriting process? The song must be compelling to me first. Maybe it centres on a certain person or something they said that had a profound impact on me. Then I try to achieve the same sensation I had but with music. I’m constantly asking myself, “what part of this experience relates to the human condition.” Assuming I can realise those things then I can whittle away with song form and melody shape, instrumentation, and so on… It’s got to feel like the listener is experiencing the story. As a committed environmentalist, do you ever get a sense of doom or fatalism about the world particularly in light of new predictions of temperature rises)? The world will be fine, it’s us humans that will struggle. However, I do not get sense of doom at all. There’s a so many forces at work in this world that keeping all my attention on one would distract from all the others. We have a tremendous amount of work to do as a globe to transition gracefully in to this new climate. We have a choice as what degree that change in weather will be. I dedicate a significant portion of my time trying to build and invigorate community because strong, healthy communities is what we will need most to deal with basic needs like water, food and shelter. 

What are the themes that you pick up on, particularly in your music? People. Time and again I find myself attracted to peoples stories. Moreover, how people treat other people. Most often the narrative of is derived from an acutely personal perspective. But as a sculpt the themes I try to centre on what specifically I relate to as a human. Can you tell me a little about Half Made Man – why did you choose to selfproduce? A mentor and friend of mine encouraged to capture more of the spirit of the live show in the studio. So I invited some musicians that I know and trust to make music in a more social way. The way I see it, all these musicians are uniquely seasoned after recording scores of records. Once we all got in the room together with our extraordinary engineer, Kevin Rattermann, there was no need for an engineer or really even a leader. We just made the music that made sense to us as a collective based on the songs I had written. Did you end up achieving what you set out to? Were there bumps or unexpected twists on the way? Well, my intention was to honestly capture the sound of the ensemble in a less curated way. We certainly succeeded in that effort. And, to that end, I thoroughly enjoy listening back to Half-Made Man and hearing each player’s distinct voice. I don’t hear tricky overdubs and detailed scoring, but rather good group craftsmanship. What track on Half Made Man are you fondest of ? Why? I’m quite fond of The Healer. The theme of trying to fix things or search for truth is a big part of my life. And I like how the songs moves in a cinematic way: beginning with a close shot of idling trucks and drivers in a dense city and slowly panning out to the suburbs and rural areas… it feels like home. What should we expect for your Byron show? Sheer joy. My percussion, Jordon Ellis, and I won’t be flying all the way across the world for anything less.

The Staples Art of Singing from the Heart SOMETIMES YOU JUST KNOW YOU ARE IN THE PRESENCE OF GREATNESS. SURE IT WAS JUST ON THE PHONE, BUT 20 MINUTES CHATTING WITH MAVIS STAPLES AND THIS WARM FEELING OF GOODNESS JUST FLOODS THE ROOM. HERE IS A WOMAN WHO OOZES GENEROSITY, AN EASYGOING HAPPY WOMAN WITH A VOICE THAT CANNOT ONLY SOAR TO THE HEAVENS, IT CAN REACH RIGHT IN AND TOUCH YOUR SOUL. Mavis is 73 years of age. She has been singing in public since she was eight years old, beginning with her family group, led by patriarch Roebuck â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Popsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; Staples on guitar. The five siblings and their pops were called â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Godâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Greatest Hits Makersâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;. The Staple singers were not just gospel singers, they were part of something much bigger. They were the singers who opened for Martin Luther King when he toured addressing the people of America. â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;The movement hadnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t started when we first got singing, but when we met Martin Luther and we heard those speeches, we said the Lord has really blessed us and we would sing before he would speak and we would travel with him. He said, Pops, I want you and your daughters to come with me. Every time he went to a meeting heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d say you can come to the meeting, he had one song called Why Am I treated so Bad â&#x20AC;&#x201C; weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d sing that and he would get up and speak.â&#x20AC;&#x2122; Mavis Staplesâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s entire life has been about singing. She has shared the stage with the world greats, but it wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t until 2011 that she won her first Grammy for Best American Album in 2011 for You Are Not Alone. She took to the stage declaring, â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;This has been a long time coming!â&#x20AC;&#x2122;

Singing for Mavis is about giving a piece of herself. â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;I live the life I sing about and I live my songs,â&#x20AC;&#x2122; she says. â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;I have a little movie in my head and I can actually see it when I sing. â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Especially the freedom songs like You are not Alone â&#x20AC;&#x201C; that song takes me on a journey of where I want to reach the people and let them know that they are not alone; there are many people in the same predicaments and the trying times in the world today and it comforts you and it helps me thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re many songs that take me to places. I love to sing the songs my father wrote â&#x20AC;&#x201C; I am on a different journey each time I sing. It is my purpose to want to reach people. My father taught me; he said, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Mavis when you sing from your heart, that is enoughâ&#x20AC;?. I had seen kids singing and jumping across the stage and Pops snatched me off stage and he said what are you doing? He said let me tell you something, you are singing Godâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s music! You are singing sacred music! You donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t need gimmicks or to clown, you sing from your heart, what comes from the heart reaches the heart; if you sing from your heart you will reach the people who listen to you. I have never forgotten that. I still take that on stage.â&#x20AC;&#x2122;

Staplesâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s life has been a fortunate one. â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;I am so grateful,â&#x20AC;&#x2122; she says. â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;I have been so blessed. Life is love, and God is Love. You know I am just a really happy-go-lucky person, and Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m a people person. I love doing what I can for anyone who will ask me. If I canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t I just say Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m sorry. I havenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t had a stressful life. I love what I do. I love to sing. I love to travel and I love to meet new people. I am sad to leave my sister Cleotha sometimes â&#x20AC;&#x201C; sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not well â&#x20AC;&#x201C; so I have to apologise to her when I get home. I always say I am sorry. We are a close family. There was never a problem with our Mavis Staples is one of the featured performers at Bluesfest family; our mother and our father brought us up in a family of love. this year.

They’re not merely gift tags that go with presents, to denote who gave you the steak knives and who gave you the coffee cup. They’re the little piece of cardboard that attempts to say ‘Hey I’m alive, and you’re still alive and See Mandy live at www.echonetdaily.net.au isn’t this thing we’re all doing on the planet the most terrifyingly fun thing ever? Hope you don’t fall off or lose heart? See you at the end.’ Of course we’d never say anything that blunt. Usually it’s ‘Happy HAPP-E XMAS Birthday’ or ‘Merry Christmas’. I think a card should say something Nothing says I don’t care about you more than an E-card. In fact I meaningful or at least relevant.

I have to waste time or money on anyone in my life so I’ve just sent you always done it, not because I am a crazy Christian spreading the this patronising animated Santa card that you have to download in word about the birth of the good Lord but because I think there’s your own time’. And don’t bleat on about how it saves paper. It’s not something sweet in the tradition of acknowledgment of the Green-E. E-Cards are Laz-E and lack any generosit-E of spirit. importance of friends or family we may rarely see, or a thankyou to those people in our tightest circles that we see every day.

The fact is you’ve gone to the effort fuzzies of having something real and tangible in your letterbox. And to make an effort to choose a card, to write their name and to find it doesn’t. I just think, ‘thanks tightwad’ and then I press Delete. Then their address. Finding the address is one of the major Xmas-card I send them a real Xmas card to remind them of what sentiment challenges. Last year I sent out around 60 cards.

Early on I used to make every one by hand with the according to that equation things aren’t looking too good for me in kids. We’d make red hearts covered in glitter and buttons and fluff.

About three hours of work went into each card. It took so long that even when you started in Easter you’d still only have 10 cards by Xmas. So I came up with the idea of the family photograph. But not a pretentious white shirts and jeans one, with us all photoshopped to look like we’d stepped out of a Home Living magazine. No, I wanted something stupid.

Living in Mullum the costume hunt was simple. Last year was a Very Bogan Xmas, and featured the kids in mullet wigs and tattoos smoking and drinking Bundy. One of those daughters is now covered in real tattoos, so I guess you should be careful what you ask for! This year we celebrated our blended family by imitating the Brady Bunch headshots. There’s something romantic about taking a bundle of letters to the post office, knowing that in a few days someone you love is going to receive that card, that little passport to a smile, knowing that the effort that has gone into creating that card and getting it to them says more than the corny Christmas greetings. It says far more. It says. See, At least I made an Effort. Happy Xmas, Cockhead. Read more of Mandy in her book, What I Would Do If I Were You, available at all good bookshops

All their contact details will remain the same, with NORPA administration back on board from 7 Jan. NORPA will launch their 2013 season in an alternative venue on May 22.

For dance lovers who would like to experience the greatest of all romantic ballets, Swan Lake, recognised as a perfect synthesis of choreography and music. Though Tchaikovsky did not live to see the work become a success, his first ballet score is now synonymous with ballet itself, inspiring generations of dancers and crossing over into popular culture. Presented by Palace Opera & Ballet in conjunction with The Royal Opera, and starring Zenaida Yanowsky and Nehemiah Kish, Swan Lake screens once only on Sunday December 23 at 1pm. Films opening on December 26 include the eagerly awaited Les Misérables, with an all-star cast featuring Australian actors Hugh Jackman, Russell Crowe and Geoffrey Rush, with Anne Hathaway and Helena Bonham Carter. Set against the backdrop of 19th-century France, Les Misérables tells an enthralling Norpa on the move story of broken dreams and unrequited love, passion, sacrifice and NORPA, the performing arts company that has called Lismore City redemption – a timeless testament to the survival of the human Hall home for the last 19 years, is on the move while Lismore City spirit.

If there were beings making it to a higher vibration… would you be on Noah’s new-age ark? M: I hope not. I prefer lessevolved humans. They generally make nicer people. A lot of people bang on about ‘oneness’ and our ‘interconnectedness’ but I don’t see them lending their car to strangers, or their multimillion-dollar beach houses. You also don’t see them with a card table outside the newsagents selling pink ribbons for breast cancer. I think we have a lot to learn about being ordinary. Maybe that is the secret to our ‘oneness’. LF: No thanks, I’ll take my chances on the reality of here and now. How would you describe your fellow performer? M: Lil’ Fi is a gift from the angels… the ones that once visited Doris Day bearing picnic baskets and little gingham tablecloths. She’s a force of nature. Fierce, fragile and fabulously funny. What a voice! But it’s not just that she can sing; it’s that she has something to say. She’s my kind of woman. I like women who hold themselves at their full majesty, who cast big shadows, and hers is so large it could help cool the

planet with this nasty global warming thingy… LF: Mandy is a marvel of Mother Nature herself. She is real and speaks up for those that cannot speak for themselves. A warrior of women, the mother of common sense, and she has the ability to put our thoughts into acerbic and hilarious observations and throw them around like a seal with a ball. She makes me check that I’ve done my pelvic-floor exercises every Monday when I watch her weekly column and nearly wet myself laughing all the time. I love this feisty chick; she is wild and wonderful in every way. She’s the cat’s pyjamas in my book, larger than life and realer than rock. What should patrons expect for yours and Lil’ Fi’s End-ofthe-World Cabaret? M: Nothing. The world’s ending.

Didn’t anyone tell you that? Clearly they’ll piss themselves laughing at me and then Lil’ Fi will make them full to the brim with joy, generosity and a desire to go out and live a better life. Then they’ll wake up with a hangover of course and go back to being the same prick they were before. But everything starts with a good intention! LF: Yes, it’s a bit scary isn’t it? I think you should probably pack the Tenas just in case. It’s bound to be a whole lot of silliness. The antithesis of the humming and chanting that’s being offered up elsewhere. I figure if the world is going to end we might as well go out laughing and having some fun. Catch these women with attitude at the Mullum ExServices Club on Friday at 8pm.

OVER TEN YEARS AGO, after much encouragement from his audiences, multi-award-winning singer Roo Mackerras created the ‘Neilly Diamond’ show. He already had a good reputation for his cover versions of various famous artists but his fans let him know that he really sounded like Neil Diamond and so began one of the best Neil Diamond tribute shows in the country. Since the age of 10, when his big brother played Holly Holy and Song Sung Blue to him, Roo had been a big fan and, even with having experienced many great concerts, Roo THE NEILLY DIAMOND SHOW describes seeing Neil Diamond live as AT THE MULLUM GOLF CLUB a profound musical experience. ON NYE ‘The combined power of Neil’s songs and his voice has always been much more than the sum of the individual parts to me,’ explains Roo, ‘and it is this that I aim to recreate’.

or anticlockwise? Is ‘time’ just an illusion created by man, as Einstein so famously said? Are we all running out of time? Was Mick Jagger wrong when he languidly sang ‘time is on my side’? What time is it anyway? Universal time, daylight-saving time, summertime? Why can we only move forwards in time, yet not backwards? These are just some of the questions that we are all pondering in the calendar year 2012, the supposed ‘end of time’. Since time began (when was that?) man has been trying to capture it in some way, hold on to it and make it linear and his slave. Yet, it seems we have failed to make time our friend. All the sundials, clocks, watches, hourglasses, smartphones, calendars and various other timepieces created by us and we still have less time than ever! With all this newfangled digital technology and electronic automation should we not have more time? Alas, we don’t. What if we had stayed in a steam-driven world where handcrafted items were the norm. Would things be different? Why not try to find out, like adventurers from the Victorian era would have. So, come 6pm on 31 December 2012, embark on a great voyage to try and capture time, make it your travelling companion on life’s mysterious journey, not your master. You will need adventure wear to suit such a fantastical voyage, along with handmade contraptions to aid and assist our fanciful needs and you will also need a little currency for fine food and alcohol by the Belongil Bistro and a penchant for music and dance. Oh, and a timepiece is absolutely essential! You will be entertained along the way by some of best performers and musicians in Byron Bay.

Bring in the New Year with Chris Franklin, Dave Eastgate and Jackie Loeb. In the past two years Jackie Loeb has taken America by storm. ‘The woman has so much talent it’s sick,’ says the Los Angeles Female Playwrights Initiative. Loeb was nominated for the Best Comedy Award at the 2011 and 2012 Hollywood Fringe festivals and has received rave reviews where she has performed. If you get the chance to see Loeb perform, the Los Angeles Weekly has just one word of advice: ‘Go!’ The female comedy website Comediva.com describes Loeb as ‘comedy genius’. And they’re not wrong. It’s something that we’ve all known for years. While she’s nominated for a Mo Award for Best Comedy Act this year, in 2011 she scored a Mo Award for ‘Achievement of Excellence in Live Comedy’. Since 1992 Jackie has delighted audiences with her highly original brand of comedy – using her skills as an actor, vocalist, musician, voiceover artist and writer to enhance her on-stage delivery. The Sydney Morning Herald declared her as ‘One of the top five comics’. Former sailor for the Royal Australian Navy, standup comedian Chris Franklin made a name for himself when he released the hit comedy single Bloke back in 2000, sending up Meredith Brooks’s song Bitch.

DJ SLYNK AT THE BYRON BREWERY ON NYE

IT T’S A VERY PIIRATE EY NEW YEARS EVE E! NEW YEARS EVE CELEBRATIONS take on a whole new edge at the Hotel Brunswick when patrons are encouraged to come dressed like a pirate. Seeing as there is a pirate boat moored across the road it seems entirely appropriate to be donning the wooden legs, the cutlass and the boots. Other nights just won’t have a patch on this. With the Feramones and The Russ Walker Band playing from 7pm till 1.30am and a free courtesy bus servicing Mullum, Billinudgel, Ocean Shores and New Brighton, it’s well worth the $40. Who knows, you may even get best-dressed couple!

HITCHCOCK NYE ALRIGHT, SO YOU DON’T FEEL LIKE laughing or dancing for NYE? Well what about a movie? Palace Byron Bay Cinema invites you to welcome in the new year with style at an exclusive advance screening of Hitchcock, the bookto-screen adaptation of Alfred Hitchcock and the Making of Psycho by Stephen Rebello. Anthony Hopkins stars as the legendary Hitch, one of the most celebrated and influential filmmakers of the last century, with Helen Mirren playing his wife and partner Alma Reville. Scarlett Johansson plays Janet Leigh, known for the rest of her life as ‘the woman in the shower scene in Psycho, with James D’Arcy as Anthony Perkins and Toni Collette as Hitchcock’s secretary Peggy. Tickets are $25 for Palace Movie Club members, $30 for non-

DAVE EASTGATE , JACKIE LOEB & CHRIS FRANKLIN AT THE BALLINA RSL’S BIG GIG COMEDY FESTIVAL FOR NYE to fame in 1997 when he won the prestigious Melbourne Comedy Festival’s RAW comedy search for new talent. With regular appearances on The Footy Show, Stand Up Australia and Good News Week, Franklin is an Arianominated comedian who is up there with the best of them. In February 2010, in a small comedy club in Sydney’s Kings Cross, Dave Eastgate was joined on stage for an impromptu performance by Academy Award winner Robin Williams, who described Dave’s act as “f*#%ing beautiful”. Indisputably Australian comedy’s most dazzling new talent,

spearheaded by Robert Cray, Joe Louis Walker, Stevie Ray Vaughan and similar crusaders. While many of the Sydney bands from that era have since vanished, become historical footnotes or undergone major changes, the Cigars – true survivors that they indisputably are – have continued on, without ever compromising their distinctive no-nonsense style, to become a leading force in Australian R&B. That original Cigars lineup brought together four like-minded experienced players, all veterans of Sydney inner-west blues venues, and from the word go, as the 1990 tracks

demonstrate, the Cigars have been the very model of the ‘no passengers’ band, a well-oiled machine plus soul: no room for slackers here. Always one of the country’s hardestworking outfits (on the road more than off), the Cigars have kept their music tight, hard driving and down to earth: the Australian bar band par excellence. Apart from the timeless, unpretentious nature of the music, an obvious reason for the longevity of the Cigars must be the ongoing musical team work of two foundation members, Shane Pacey and Al Britton, who continue to co-lead the band. This also explains the consistency of the band’s sound, instantly recognisable for 20 years now, despite personnel changes and occasional stylistic variations. Frontman Shane Pacey has long been a forceful, convincing singer, and a hardattacking, razor-sharp guitarist in the modern blowtorch style of Albert Collins, Joe Louis Walker, Larry McCray and other crazy stringbenders; he’s also an outstanding prolific songwriter, and there’s ample evidence in these tracks of his sardonic, savvy and slightly warped way with lyrics. Bass player Al Hollywood Britton is another blues trooper, having survived the Dynamic Hepnotics and the Foreday Riders, and puts real backbone into the rhythm section – rock solid, responsive and funky; what’s more, he’s a dab hand in the organisational department, playing great lead telephone, according to the credits.

s r a t S WITH LILITH End of week midsummer solstice traditionally celebrated Earth’s fruitful bounty – today it marks the start of our seasonal gathering of relations, social syncopation and alcoholic animation. Wishing Capricorns happy birthday and everyone an uplifting transition into 2013…

E ARIES: We all get by this week with a lotta help from our friends. Being thankful for the valuable resources other people are and expressing appreciation and gratitude for this encourages your own wild, wonderful self to blossom – especially beautifully around late week Aries moon. F TAURUS: Effervescent Venus exploding in your house of adventure and exploration puts travel on many Tauran holiday agendas. As you make plans, don’t let minor aggravations drain your vitality or small annoyances alienate you from others. It simply isn’t worth it. Keep things sweet and easy. G GEMINI: As this week’s wheels speed up, it gets increasingly difficult to make simple decisions. So either wait till the right move occurs to you, or do the opposite: ditch the rule book and experiment. Blessed are the flexible these holidays, for they shall endeavour to simplify complications… H CANCER: It’s looking like major amounts of contagious goodwill and celebration on this week’s perky party circuit for the Crab clan. Though when emotional late-week Cancer full moon mixes affectionate closeness with familial stresses, don’t morph into the grinch. Find ways of staying userfriendly.

M SAGITTARIUS: Venus swishing into Planet Sag for a rendezvous with flirty Mercury ushers in an energetic, entertaining holiday break requiring you to glam up the usual casual Sag style. Because right now the universe looks like presenting you with some very juicy opportunities – some disguised as challenges… N CAPRICORN: Others may think holidays are all about them but the real deal is sun in Capricorn kicking off your month of self-renewal. Minimise festive stress by deleting non-essentials and blowing yourself a kiss in the mirror every time you start taking things too seriously… O AQUARIUS: Feeling more like stressed Aquarius than merry and gregarious? You can’t control other people’s behaviour, but you can choose how you react to it. As Mars charges into your sign to dramatically rearrange the Aquaverse, seek out small niches of goodwill and peace on Earth… P P ISCES: ‘Tis the season to be realistic about what you can do and what you’re not able to, because this strenuous week needs dedicated sanity breaks to stop your nerves getting in a whirl. Smile – then your brain thinks you’re happy and releases chemicals that actually make you happy.

I LEO: Don’t by fooled by appearances or hearsay this week. Rumour isn’t fact, so check before acting on it. Your humanitarian assignment is to help others enjoy their present state of divine disorder – along with making sure you take private hibernation time to recharge the royal batteries. J VIRGO: You like being organised, knowing who’s doing what, who’ll be there and what time it starts. If the seasonal mystery ride tosses your detailed arrangements in the air like confetti, then you know it’s time for the impromptu, the spontaneous, being totally in the moment… K LIBRA: You already know this week won’t be any kind of restful. The abfab news is Venus in your house of communication supports your role as the zodiac’s peace police. Unexpected visitors, unnanounced house guests? Just take things as they come and do what has to be done... L SCORPIO: With Venus and Mercury in the sign of yadda yadda yadda it’s hard to get a word in – but the next fortnight’s definitely amenable to gallivanting so sign off on problems but take care of practical realities, because who wants to spend the new year in damage control?

This is not just a collection of gags thrown together with a couple of catchy punchlines. Austen’s humour is about who we are and how we think and what happened in the cultural melting pot to make us that way. He plays provocateur to our values and measures them against our rather shaky identity as ‘Australian’.

UST IN TIME FOR CHRISTMAS, BLUESFEST 2013 – hailed as ‘... the greatest lineup ever seen at one festival in Australia’ (Paul Cashmere, Noise 11) – dazzles its audience once again. Headlining this announcement is no other than Grammywinning singer/songwriter Jason Mraz, whose song I’m Yours has captured the hearts of millions of people across the globe. His new album Love Is A Four Letter Word – which features the heartfelt single I Won’t Give Up, has quickly proven to be a smash hit this year. Jason Mraz has been added to the opening day of Bluesfest, Thursday 28 March. The Thursday of Bluesfest is the official opening day of the festival and already features Ben Harper, Counting Crows, Trombone Shorty, Grace Potter, Chris Isaak, Robert Cray, Rodriguez, Frank Turner and loads more – it is just an incredible evening of music – amongst Bluesfest’s greatest-ever bills. Manu Chao and his band La Ventura put the icing on the cake with his performance on Good Friday.

The lineup is already star studded on Easter Friday with heavyweights like Santana, Steve Miller Band, Rodriguez, and Jimmy Cliff on the bill, but who would not happily make room for such a talented musician as Manu Chao? Manu Chao with his band La Ventura has been described as one of the most charismatic and energetic musicians around today. His anti-globalisation and anti-free-trade stance has won him legions of fans around the world. His music is a blend of punk, rock, reggae, ska, salsa, French chanson and Algerian rai. His musical message resonates with the dispossessed of the world. It is about immigration, homelessness and drugs – and has strong leftist leanings. His background is Spanish Basque and his parents emigrated to Paris to escape the Spanish dictator Franco. He is simply a superstar in many parts of Europe – and he sings in Spanish, French, English, Portuguese, Arabic and Wolof. Already headlining the dream Bluesfest lineup are Paul Simon, Robert Plant Presents Sensational Space Shifters, Santana, Ben Harper, Steve Miller Band, Iggy & The Stooges, Wilco, Rodriquez, Chris Isaak, Roger Hodgson from Supertramp and so many more.

The Curious Dictionary

by Hanabeth Luke

by Gary Elkerton

by Nick Earls This time they dropped straight down. Al shut his eyes and told himself not to scream like a baby. Then he screamed like a baby. This is not home; the peg read 1835 – they’d travelled back in time! Word Hunters is a story about an old dictionary that takes two children – Lexi and Al – back in time. Their mission is to save words that could be lost in the future. Each time they enter the dictionary they are blasted into a new adventure. On the way they must fight battles, see kings being killed and run for their lives. Word Hunters is a great read and I thoroughly enjoyed it. I would recommend it for young teenagers. Review by Summer Chaseling – age 12

You’re young, in love, and in paradise… surfing, travelling, partying. Then in one terrifying wave of heat and noise your reality shatters into a million pieces that can never be put back together. Hanabeth was hamming it up on the dance floor when a loud bang momentarily silenced the music and dimmed the lights. This is a story of young love and lives cut short, yet it is the story of what Hanabeth has done since that brings a spark of hope and light to this terrible chapter in our history. Confronting

world leaders, campaigning for peace and against the war on terror, resolving to squeeze the most from every day, Hanabeth’s inspirational tale provides a stirring case study in survival and healing.

In the world of pro surfing, personalities don’t come any bigger than Gary ‘Kong’ Elkerton. Gary took to surfing when school, discipline and other conventions failed him. Living the life, getting the girls, taking the drugs – it all added up to a very good time until he woke up one day and found his nickname and reputation had become the 100-pound gorilla on his back, one that was going to be very tough to rid himself of. What do you do when everything around you, including the industry you’re in, encourages your bad behaviour and then punishes you for it? An eye-opening wild ride and a great Australian story.

Subtitled ‘Surf Portraits and Stories’, Turning Point transports the reader to yesteryear – a time less complicated. Presented as a series of individual photographs and minimalist stories, the book is a gentle window into surfing Bells to Byron in 1970– 71. This is not a racy book of unbelievable action shots or aweinspiring moves. It is a contemplative work that demands you settle in and reminisce… Rusty provides a glimpse into his personal ‘turning point’ and ‘falling for’ Byron Bay. ‘These are one-off shots taken in a simpler time… They are of a period remembered as pure and uncomplicated.’

High Season A Memoir Of Heroin & Hospitality’ by Jim Hearn High Season is a rollicking story of food, heroin, prostitution and celebrity. Jim Hearn cleverly weaves his life story around cooking an unscheduled 5-star lunch for Paris Hilton and friends on New Years Day at the peak of the high season in Byron Bay. The large appetite of the Paris Hilton party, the unexpected shortage of heroin at Kings Cross on NYE… Jim draws attention to the balance of pleasure and pain in the hedonism of those that stay at Rae’s Boutique Guesthouse… Hearn is thrown into the chaotic world of excess when his father decides to give away everything the family owns! The family is left with nothing. When Jim is 15 the

family dissolves and his mother organises him into a cooking apprenticeship. Despite continuing to develop his culinary craft, Jim’s life seems to go nowhere. With admirable honesty and a generous portion of good humour, Hearn owns up to a seemingly endless series of disastrous life choices that will make you cry, laugh out loud, wince with pain, and sometimes all three at once. Back at Rae’s, Hearn’s depiction of the tension, heat and adrenalin in the 5-star kitchen during the New Years Day service is captivating. However, his portrayal of the associated personal relationships and dynamics is what sets this book apart – endearing, challenging and heart-wrenching. Hearn offers us a front-seat view into the world of excessive appetite. We are given a taste of what this world is like from the inside.

THURSDAY 20 ABC 1

1. Popular American standup comedian Louis CK (www. louisck.com) is the creator, star, producer, writer, director, and editor of the comedy series, named mysteriously, Louie (ABC2, Saturday Dec 22, 9.30pm), sandwiched between Louis Theroux (http://louistheroux.com), who ventures inquisitively into weird subcultures and survives, and Comedy Roadshow, which makes for a pretty entertaining evening altogether. 2. Director Tim Burton is in fine form with Mars Attacks! (GO!, Sunday Dec 23, 9.30pm), a parody of science fiction B movies based on a cult trading-card series of the same name. It is loaded with big-name actors but was made famous by the quirky alien laugh, created by reversing the sound ducks make when they quack.

THURSDAY 27 ABC 1

1. Before Shades of Grey there was the far more accurate title Diary of a Nymphomaniac (SBS2, Saturday Dec 29, 12.30am) starring Belén Fabraand as the sexual athlete in question. Erotic drama about sums it up. Men, women, a piece of wood shaped like a chicken, it’s all grist to the mill of the young lass in question. I might have lied about the wood. 2. Along with Santa and Jesus this time of year brings a welcome outbreak of world-class tennis, beginning in Australia with the Brisbane International www. brisbaneinternational.com.au (7TWO, Monday Dec 31, 8pm), in which our Sam Stosur will attempt to out-muscle the screeching Maria Sharapova and the formidable Serena Williams.

 stricken father. A mountainous dispute is made from the molehill of a disagreement and Asghar Farhadiâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Oscarwinning drama, clandestinely shot under the nose of a proscriptive regime, offers no easy resolution for participants or viewers.

n BEASTS OF THE SOUTHERN WILD

Late Nite Video

Six year-old Hushpuppy, a fringe dweller in the Bayou country, understands intuitively that â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;the whole universe depends on everything fitting together just rightâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;. Her home is ravaged by storm, ancient aurochs trouble her imaginings, her father and sole protector, Wink, is dying with an incurable illness â&#x20AC;&#x201C; but the little girl is indomitable. All of us will be gone in a million years, but like Hushpuppyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s, our strivings have their place in the grand scheme of things. We all belong. Mesmerising, surreal and life-affirming.

p A magnificent reminder that cinema is first and foremost a visual medium, and that it should be experienced on the big screen. Set in 1927, when the silent movie is about to be overwhelmed by the talkies, the famous actor and heartthrob George Valentin is a man who will be lost in time. Only the intervention of Peppy Miller, the actress whose career he set in train, will save him. Black-and-white never looked so good and, for his sterling contribution, Uggie the Jack Russell was deservedly awarded Cannesâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s prestigious â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Palm Dogâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;.

o THE WAY Unashamed and entirely ingenuous in spurning the triumphant cynicism of so many mainstream filmmakers, Emilio Estevez mines spiritual gold from his Catholic background in a faith-based story of renewal, forgiveness and brotherly love. With reallife father Martin Sheen as a pilgrim seeking to come to terms with the sudden death of his only son, Estevez leads those willing along Spainâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s rugged but beautiful El Camino di Santiago to a destination of luminous tranquility.

q A SEPARATION Well what do you know â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Iranians are real people, too, challenged by the same intractable problems that we all need to deal with. A normal, middle-class couple is torn apart by the motherâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s desire to provide opportunity for their child in the West, while the husband is committed to staying in Tehran with his Alzheimerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s-

INTOUCHABLES

r THE BEST EXOTIC MARIGOLD HOTEL A rare treat for Indophiles and what Martin Amis has called the â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;silver tsunamiâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; of old fogeys whose dollar is foolishly overlooked by an industry obsessed with catering to air-headed youth and its cult of celebrity. The paneer is laid on thick as a bunch of English retirees descend on Jaipur to take up residence in a hotel that has been transformed into a retirement home. They find redemption, rejuvenation and romance. â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Everything will be alright in the end, and if itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not alright â&#x20AC;Ś it is not the end.â&#x20AC;&#x2122;

Omar Sy delivers an endearing and memorable performance as Driss, the Senegalese neâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;er-do-well who is employed to be the arms and legs of a fabulously wealthy French quadriplegic. The odd-couple theme is hardly new, but here it is done with irresistible warmth and convincing spontaneity as both men are enriched by their journey together. Eschewing any temptation to wallow in pity, grief or resentment, Olivier Nakache and Eric Toledanoâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s movie is a funny, poignant celebration of our shared humanity.

t HEADHUNTERS Scandi-noir was suddenly the happening thing and prolific Norwegian crime writer Jo Nesbø the go-to man for your rattling good yarn of murder, mystery and, in this case, a bit of hoary mayhem. The oddly named Roger Brown is about as conflicted as you can get â&#x20AC;&#x201C; he cheats on his girlfriend, he steals paintings from his

v MARTHA MARCY MAY MARLENE business clients and, as a little bloke, he has a wopping selfimage crisis. But we’re with him all the way, whether he’s hiding for his life in a giant dunny pan or crawling out of a wrecked car. A modern classic of the genre.

u SALMON FISHING IN THE YEMEN Invariably, the success of any rom-com is dependent on the chemistry sparked between the two leads. Boyish, always likeable Ewan McGregor and the cool, home-counties beauty of Emily Blunt are a natural fit in Lasse Hallström’s feelgreat indulgence. Distantly echoing [ITALIC]Billy Liar,[/ ITALIC] only with a positive

A creepy offering, it includes a murder so callous that it shocks in a way that Tarantino could never manage in a month of lurid Sundays. Cults are a fertile source of material for stories that delve into the compulsive behavioural patterns of those who manipulate and those who allow themselves to be manipulated. John Hawkes as the charismatic Manson-like figure and Elizabeth Olsen as the ‘family’ member who flees the group without freeing herself from its psychological grip are both fantastic in a dark and demonic tale.

By far this year’s best animation. It trod where few producers for ostensibly more mature audiences are game to go by focusing on a motherand-daughter conflict, with no hero arriving to save the day. It’s also about a determined and at times fiery feminism – remember that? – as opposed to women believing that they have attained some sort of numbskull liberation because they can behave like ratbag blokes. Beautiful artwork and a fabulous evocation of a mystic, misty Scotland.

I have come to visit Steve at his Kingscliff restaurant called Fins, same name as the more recent one at Byron Bayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Beach Hotel and before that the legendary Brunswick Heads one, the one people still talk about wistfully, nostalgically. Despite the proximity of carpark and the absence of sea views, it is a lovely space for dining: chic and intimate, deck fringed by luxuriant greenery, swank bar where you can perch for freshly shucked oysters or proper tapas. And the ocean is a stroll away, as it would have to be for a man whose foremost motive for travelling the world was surfing. Steve is so infectiously happy, so boyishly enthusiastic, that you become swept up in the excitement of it all. He cannot stop smiling, and it is plain that a restaurant relocation many regarded dubiously has been nothing less than a triumph. â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re radically busy â&#x20AC;&#x201C; itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s always busy,â&#x20AC;&#x2122; he tells me. â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;We find weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re running all the time.â&#x20AC;&#x2122; He believes itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s due to a combination of the extraordinary produce he has access to and his wifeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s input. â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s full of ideas â&#x20AC;&#x201C; sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s kept the restaurant interesting and freshâ&#x20AC;Ś Morgan is an amazing driving force.â&#x20AC;&#x2122; Growing up, he was exposed to many different culinary influences. His Australian father had married a girl from Lahore, Pakistan whom he had met at teachers college â&#x20AC;&#x201C; so while Steveâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s schoolmates were hoeing into devon sandwiches he would be having â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;a radical curryâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;. â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;To this day,â&#x20AC;&#x2122; he says, â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t know anything that doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t taste better with chili.â&#x20AC;&#x2122;

And yet his becoming a chef was almost accidental. He started a law degree then dropped out, to take up one in business. This led to a job with NestlĂŠ, through which he was contacted one day by chef Michael de Lawrence (ex-Utopia, ex-Dish) who loved his ideas and wanted him to offer business assistance toward his new Surry Hills restaurant. Steve started doing entrees and desserts and ended up job-sharing the venue with Michael, lasting two years before his urge to surf and travel took him to Portugal. It was there that he met his first wife and commenced a love-affair with Portugal which, spanning thirty years, has dramatically influenced and informed his cooking. He spent time working on fishing boats in France; he ran a restaurant in South Africa. â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Everywhere I went,â&#x20AC;&#x2122; he says, â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;it was for surfing.â&#x20AC;&#x2122; Back in Australia he ended up cooking at The Rails in Byron Bay, before opening up his first Fins in Brunswick Heads. â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;It was like a hippy restaurant,â&#x20AC;&#x2122; he recalls. â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;All I wanted to do was have thirty bums on seats on a Saturday night.â&#x20AC;&#x2122; So down-to-earth, so intrinsically joyous, here is a man who still cooks most nights a week â&#x20AC;&#x201C; who, incidentally, cooks like an angel, one of the best around â&#x20AC;&#x201C; who balances the lifestyle out with yoga and meditation, whoâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s in love, whoâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s so happy he didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t become a lawyer â&#x20AC;&#x201C; who is just so happy, godammit, I leave him wreathed in smiles, shimmering with some of the happiness thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s rubbed off on me.

Another Fistful of Letters/Pin This Up

Sad end to a young life

say. Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve had eight or nine access officers; everyone comes with a different story every couple of months.â&#x20AC;&#x2122; These statements reflect the despair felt by many farmers in the Darling Downs and Western Downs regions that I have been visiting in the last week. I went to see for myself what living with the gas rush might be like. An incessant line of trucks rumble along taxpayersâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; roads at high speeds. Sometimes the machinery they carry is so wide it takes up two lanes. Backroads are busy with shiny white utes and fancy four bes and tanker trucks; all this activity is unnerving. And then there are the pipelines, 42 inches of steel from China sitting in a deep trench in a swathe 40 metres across, all the way to Gladstone. Delays of months or years occur because the pipes are faulty and I saw and smelt the rotting carcass of a calf that had fallen into the trench. CSG companies target the old, the needy and naive first of all because they can get a foot in the door. One old lady signed up even before negotiating compensation. So please go to csgfreenorthernrivers.org, take the pledge and watch their new five-minute clip. Talk to your neighbours and watch

Well done, Echo, for being pretty much the only media that reported on the substance of the Lismore CSG December 5 meeting. Other media have focused on the alleged spitting by one or two individuals and has ignored the 898 or so other attendees (of which I was one) whose questions were not answered. For example, whereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the answer to the woman who gave a firsthand account of the 1954 floods that devastated the region? What happens to holding/evaporation ponds when they are flooded? Minister Hazzard: where is this answered in your â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;processâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;? Please donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t tell me that most of the chemicals are â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;in common useâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; (eerily the same words that the CSG companies use) unless youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re prepared to have Ratsak in your tea or paint-stripper on your Wheaties. We donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t want chemicals anywhere near our water supply. Full-stop. Karin Kolbe

will guide him when he is lost? What safety nets and guardrails do we have in place to stop our children from falling in this way? Not enough, and what services we have are horrendously underfunded and when I heard that one service said that this young man had to wait till February, as everyone was busy over Christmas, I was overwhelmed with sorrow and anger. How could they turn their backs and how can we now? The issues young people face are often forgotten as we as parents and adults are swept up in our own struggles of life and we forget that these are turbulent and awkward years filled with extreme physical and hormonal changes. Most make it through yet some can get lost in drug-induced psychoses of no return. Some can be like Peter Pan, unable to grow up and care for their own children and some take their own lives. We need more acute care and assessment mental health services that work with wellfunctioning drug and alcohol rehabilitation and well-funded mental health clinics. I hope, with your support, there will be an immediate and thorough inquiry into the death of this young man because he deserves his story to be told and we deserve to know the truth about the turmoil he and his

Last week one of our mothers lost her son, and we lost a beautiful child of the shire. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m in deep heartache, sadness and anger that this gifted and misunderstood young man didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t get the help he deserved and that his mother, who tried everything to help her son, is now bereft and has to carry this loss for the rest of her life. How many more young people need to be lost forever, before health services for the young especially are improved in the area? The burden of responsibility belongs to us all to make enough noise and say one life is enough, and yet we have had so, so many beautiful souls perish in this area. For a counterculture that prides and markets itself on alternative living and experimentation, we have along the way brought our kids into this way of life and we need to buffer and provide adequate care for them, as they have had no choice in it. Too many of them have fallen off the edges of the fringe we have created. It is our responsibility to nurture them in an environment that is as safe as possible. Â To turn our backs on them, in a culture we created, is something we shouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t ever do. Part of me is petrified, as a mother, that if my own son loses the way, as most teenagers are wont to do, then who

Design to fail

Marg returns from a weekly foray down the hill to the Bimby Market, cardboard boxes full of the Shireâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s tastiest produce. She kisses Bob on return but is clearly bothered. Bob: What happened down there, Marg? Marg: Another flat tyre, Bob. A car was coming the other way so couldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t avoid it, and this one was half a metre deep. Bob: Same one just after that bend? Marg: Yep, same one they patched up a few weeks back. Do you think the council road workers are nervous about their work drying up? Bob: Could well be, Marg, â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;design to failâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; is the term in the manufacturing world. You make a product that will fail in six months and in six months the consumer has to come

enough state funds? But letâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not rely completely on state government. Byron Shire needs a way to urgently capture funds from the mass of tourist humanity that enjoy the Shire. I suggest a Tourist Tax (call it investment) for all those cashed up coal and CSG mining Queenslanders (and others) who frequent the area. How do we do that? Well I have never had a parking ticket in my life and I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have the â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;localsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; sticker. We donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t need to create a city environment with meters. It could be a few ticket machines in Byron where tourists pay $10 to obtain a day pass to park anywhere locally. And the locals grab their sticker from Council and are of course exempt. It could be that that a Locals Card induces a ten per cent discount on everything. And then two is works. The current inefficiencies and urgently needed cultural shift required within Byron Shire works â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Marg: Bob, come and help me with these boxes! Ben Nowland

Futile camphor policy

When Council did its annual accounts last year the auditor explained that from now on Councilâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s listed assets would include the value of the land under and alongside its roads. Donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t ask me what cute bookkeeping purpose this innovation serves, but my immediate reaction was to ask the auditor whether this asset would be balanced against a growing council liability: the cost of removing camphor laurels from those roadsides. He said no, but acknowledged the validity of my point. Millions of dollars will in fact be required to address the problem, and that figure grows exponentially as the trees grow. Since my MO was revalidat-

Mayan moon

The Mayan long-count calendar ticks over on 21 December 2012, so Thursday 20 December may well be your last chance to join Marie and Philip in their monthly moon viewings.

They will be at Brunswick Heads near the music shell on The Terrace, this Thursday 20th December, from about 7 to 8.30pm. All welcome. Free. (Cancelled if raining, too cloudy or apocalyptic).

Christmas day lunch

An invitation to anyone who may be having Christmas lunch on their own to come and join with other folk at the Uniting Church hall in Fingal Street, Brunswick Heads, from

ed by the court last February Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve been busily clearing dwelling sites and bushfire zones. Even on the cheap, doing a lot of the work myself, Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve forked out thousands. Had I engaged â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;arboristsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; (as tree-lopping outfits call themselves) I would have paid at least four times as much; these guys are the new plumbers. I know of one person who was quoted over $4000 to remove one averagesize camphor in a fairly easy access position. The young guy who climbs and saws gets $30$40 per hour for risking his life and itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the pen-pushers who pocket the real profits. My recent experience in clearing proves what I already knew: camphors eventually choke out everything else â&#x20AC;&#x201C; because they hog the light by spreading their branches wide. Underneath them nothing else grows, nothing, leaving a kind of green desert that is incapable of supporting wildlife and with nothing to hold the surface soil together. The previous Greens-dominated council (and I include under this term non-card-carrying Crs Morrissey and Cameron) was an abject failure in regard to this major environmental problem. All your council has done to limit the invasion of the camphor triffid is to develop a policy ie retreat into a parallel paper universe. Nothing at all has happened on the ground. The policy itself (No 11/007 if you care to look it up) is an exercise in intellectual dysfunction, if not actual autism. This policy is clearly the result of some poor bureaucrat having to sort through scores of contradictory public submissions and coming up with something that makes all of those people feel heard without offending any of them. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s pitiful. Fast Buck$

2012: another brilliant year as a bum on a seat Story & photos John Campbell

‘Played strong, done good.’ If ever the late Jack Gibson’s ungrammatical praise could be applied to a member of the Great Unwashed on the punters’ side of the fence, then I reckon I’d be a lay-down misere for 2012’s Fan of the Year. Thanks to satellite TV and the opiate of cyberspace, there’s no reason why any jock (or jockette, to give the girls their place in the Great Scam) should miss any sporting event that is happening at any time, anywhere on the globe – except maybe for the fact that most of those events are dead boring. Rising up against the lounge room’s second-hand, replayed – and replayed again thrills, I made a pact with myself at the beginning of the year to get off my arse and go to as many events that held some interest for me as I could. To be among it, to feel the vibe, to hear the roar of the crowd and smell the liniment (and sure, to smell the crowd too). It didn’t come cheap, but what a stellar season I had. In January I was at the Sydney Cricket Ground to witness its hundredth test match. There are plenty more profitable ways that a man might spend five days of his life, but to have seen every run of MJ Clarke’s 329 not out was pure gold for this cricket tragic.

After the return to India of MS Dhoni’s sooky tourists, the footy season was soon upon us. For the Mullumbimby Giants’ A-grade, a bruising, barren winter ensued at Les Donnelly Field while, across the highway, Byron’s Red Devils got to the regional comp’s semis only to collapse in an unseemly heap. But the NRL brought joy approaching ecstasy. I went berko at the Sydney Football Stadium when Greg ‘GI’ Inglis kicked the field-goal that gave the Bunnies a 17–16

win over the Tigers, and I was in the stands at Homebush when NSW beat the Canetoads 16–12 in Origin 2. Grand Final day was also a hoot, and it wasn’t just because the Dogs got done (though it was an essential factor). Being there to see former Mullum boys Jacob Miller and Matt Mulcahy star for the Tigers in the Toyota Cup decider warmed the cockles, especially after Matt’s old man, Kev, with ancient bones rattling and chrome dome glistening in the late winter sun,

had a month earlier figured in the Giants’ reserve grade triumph at Murwillumbah. 2012’s unexpected highlight, however, was at the Sumo in Japan. I’d caught the train from Kyoto to Osaka and was worried that I might have trouble finding my way to the auditorium. Until I saw a manmountain dressed in a kimono with a Shintaro haircut towering above the station’s throng. I followed in his wake. There was only a scattering

of fans when I arrived – the matches go all day and it’s not until the higher-ranked wrestlers appear that the bleachers get packed. The early hours are for the true believers, the ones who typically become most vocal (this is the case all around the wide world of sports). ‘Carn big fella! Bore it up him!’ (or words to that effect) from a rube nearby echoed around the half empty stadium as the lesser lights did their pushing and shoving. An ancient and rigid, but

highly decorative formality prevails (the refs’ silk gowns are to die for) and I suppose the most obvious thing to say about the activity itself is that is that it is very Zen – nobody does their nana. I was surprised, too, by how passionate the crowd got during the bouts featuring the Alist wrestlers. Although, after sitting through hours of contests that rarely lasted more than half a minute, even I was wound up and happy to go apeshit when the big boppers came to grips. The healthiest looking bloke on the bill was an American. Tall and taut, like a Rugby lineout jumper, and with a hairy chest – hirsuteness is not a Jap thing – he fronted up with a square-jawed mongrel attitude. He scattered salt across the deck like an old pro, squatted and gave his opponent the inscrutable eye, then stood and walked away a couple of times, just to make sure that the other fellow was unsettled. It’s a game of cat and mouse. You could have cut the tension with a knife. At last they lunged at each other. The Yank was hurled over the rope within seconds, prompting an outburst of delirious joy from the locals. It was awesome, one of the great moments of a great sporting year. Only a South Sydney premiership in 2013 will top it.

Do the right thing: swim between the flags The tide is high but we’re holding on… Eve Jeffery

The term ‘king tide’ has no scientific definition though it is increasingly used to describe the very highest of high tides. The low tides that accompany these high tides are also the very lowest of tides. The extremes in tides are a seasonal and predictable event and we get them generally around Christmas time in the summer and in the middle of winter, though these are gen-

erally not as noticeable due to the time of day they occur and the human traffic on the beach. The tide coming in on the Bruns on the weekend was so strong and fast it was clearly visible to the eye as it rushed below the footbridge. No matter what we call them, it’s important that we know about the tides and keep vigilant in our swimming habits and those of our children. It’s just safe to swim between the flags, people. You know you want to.

Members and patrollers from the Brunswick Surf Life Saving Club got together with some of the club’s Nippers and the Bruns pres Craig Reid for a bit of fun before gearing up for a full Christmas and New Year season with their annual doorknock in Brunswick heads on Boxing Day.

If I thought getting down on my knees and personally begging everyone in the country to swim between the flags. would solve the problem of beach drowning this summer, I would do it in a snap. Losing lives on our beaches is too ridiculously unnecessary for words, yet it still happens www.echo.net.au

– why? Who knows. We have education and media programs telling us what to do, we have patrollers both paid and volunteers watching over us FREE, yet people still take silly risks and end up as a statistic on a slab. In the Byron Shire we have two great surf clubs. These folk willingly provide personnel to keep you safe on the beach.

They have safety equipment, they’ve had training and they know that prevention is better than a rescue. All you have to do is swim between the flags and before you get up-in-arms, yes it IS cool to swim between the flags. It is cool and safe making the lifesaver’s job a lot easier so they don’t have to spend time leaving their watch to save idiots.

Now that I have that off my chest, say hello to the patrollers over summer. Tell them how appreciative you are of what they do, give them an extra wave if you are at the beach on December 25 instead being with their rels, and if someone from the Bruns club knocks on your door on Boxing Day, your spare change makes a real difference to how they save lives.

Expect the unexpected: Darby and dad Mick had travelled from the Gold Coast especially to enjoy the renowned flat waters at Torakina Beach in Brunswick Heads, only to find that the surf was up. The pleasant surprise in the tradtionally sheltered spot meant that Mick had to be extra vigilant as Darby had a ball in the waves enhanced by the high tide. Photo Tree Faerie.

A few minutes with the ‘Chief ’ and Gil Crespy

Eve Jeffery

Recently the Toohey’s New Crew descended on the Fingal Rovers SLSC to help them finish off the work needed to ensure that the building was up and running for the summer season. The Echonetdaily editor sent me up to see how the work was going and I decided that it would be a great opportunity to pick at the

brains of crew leader Paul ‘The Chief ’ Harragon – but, as we all know, I am a Victorian and unless we are talking Collingwood, I haven’t much of a clue about football. Tag in all-code expert and all-round nice guy Gil Crespy to help me frame a few questions for the Newcastle Knights legend. Is banning the shoulder charge a good idea? Banning the shoulder charge

has some merit in its intent but it’s fraught with danger. They could even end up reversing the decision if it is not implemented correctly, and what I mean by that is that shoulder charging is part of the game and you can’t stop something so instinctive on a button. If they try and put a suspension on it, they are going to have people left, right and centre out of the game. It’s too hard to stop. It has to be ushered in over three years with just on-field reminders at the start and as time goes on penalties can get more and more severe. You cannot just stop shoulder charging. Is Mark ‘Spud’ Carroll still your mate? *Laughs* Yes he is. He’s a mate, he’s in my phone contacts and we are actually quite close friends now. We usually try catch up once a year before

Christmas. It’s funny how the arch-rivals and enemies become friends. I mean we used to hate each other. Manly and Newcastle, we used to hate each other for all those years but in our old age we’ve become the best of friends. Will NSW ever win State of Origin again? This year, that hurt me. I have been suffering for the last seven years, but this one, I felt dejected because we were close. Now with a change of coach, we’ve got to start again a little bit. It won’t take long, Laurie (Daley) will do a good job. So I have no definite answer for that one except to say that, if you don’t reinvent yourself and get ahead of the game, you are forced to reinvent yourself by failure and we have failed abysmally. You can make the excuse that the Queensland team is probably the best of all

time, when you have four or five players who are some of the all-time greats. That’s just one of the things that goes in cycles, but, it’s time for us to really step up. Will rugby league remain the premier football code in the Newcastle/Hunter region, despite the emergence of soccer and AFL? Absolutely! When rugby league first started in Australia in 1908, Newcastle was actually in the Sydney competition. They went down by train for two years but it was too far, so we started our own competition. Northern England is where the game started. All the northern English coal miners who came out to Australia came to the coal mines in Newcastle. Mate it’s in their blood, in their DNA, and it will never, ever, ever change.

Memory of Andy Irons. Only Parkinson and reigning 11-time ASP World Champion Kelly Slater (USA), 40, were in contention for the world title heading into the final day. Parkinson needed to finish one position higher to claim the title that has eluded him for the past 12 years. With Slater’s loss to Josh Kerr (AUS) in the semifinal, Parkinson’s dream became reality. Parkinson went on to beat Kerr in the final. ‘Consistency paid off,’ Parkinson said. ‘This is where I wanted to stand at the end of the year. This is what I’ve worked for my whole life. I can’t describe what this feels like. I’ve had runner-ups and ups-and-downs. I’ve been to hell and back and it makes this so much sweeter.’ Parkinson says that right now the Pipe Master World Title is surreal. ‘I figured it was going to be a pressure-cooker like a few years ago. I knew there was nothing I could do about it. It was about what I had to do, not about what he had to do. I thought, surely he (Slater) has got to peak because he had that heat with Shane (Dorian) and I knew Kerr is a danger man for him. When Kerr got that one, I felt like I was going to physically throw

up. I couldn’t control my emotions at that point. ‘One day you wake up feeling good; the next day you wake up feeling like a loser. This morning I felt like a champion when I woke up. Like Andy always said, ‘I got this, huh?’ I dedicate this to my family, Dad who used to take me to contests when I was 10, my wife and my mum and kids; this is all for us.’ Now that the 2012 ASP World Championship Tour

season has come to a close, and the world’s best surfers prepare for a well-deserved break before the start of the next season, the ASP has determined which surfers will contest the 2013 ASP World Title. Australians make up half of the very top guns – the 2013 ASP World Championship Tour will commence with the Quiksilver Pro Gold Coast at Snapper Rocks from March 2 to 13, 2013.

Laptops and WiFi – the smart new mini home office The rapid take-up of mobile computing using laptops, tablets and smart phones has made the space required for a home office virtually negligible with many people opting for just a bench placed in a quiet space with a pleasant outlook, according to Archicentre, the building design, inspection and advice service of The Australian Institute of Architects. David Hallett from Archicentre said the introduction of wi-fi into the home has meant there is no longer the need to establish a home office around a desk-top computer, towers, printers and scanners or to ensure a collection of dedicated power points. ‘Technology has also reduced

the need for storage space as most small businesses now store their information electronically,’ Mr Hallett said. ‘The introduction of the technology has opened up a creative window for people designing new homes or renovations where a home office is required.’ Archicentre sees the trend growing with changes in employment patterns, companies extending the opportunity for more people to work at home and people wanting to avoid the growing commuting difficulty on congested roads and public transport. ‘Today the home office can be built into a kitchen/meals area, a smartly designed storage area or even a stairwell in one of the most pleasant areas of the home with views into the garden or an internal courtyard,’ Mr Hallett said. ‘In many cases a built-in desk, with storage and drawers

underneath, can allow the home office to blend into major open space areas of the home to create a spacious area to work without sacrificing valuable floor space elsewhere in the home. ‘Making the use of small spaces for a successful mini office saves money as it utilises the space economically and frees up space for other family uses. ‘The success of creating a home office in a small space requires planning to ensure the home office provides a productive working environment and suits the type of work being carried out. ‘A home office is one of the most commonly requested features requested by people contacting Archicentre for renovation or new home design concepts. ‘The increasing trend of people moving into apartments in capital cities has also increased the need for mini home offices as young professionals often

do work from home.’ Mr Hallett said for people considering the development of a mini home office some of the key points which need to be considered in the design includes: tOBUVSBMMJHIUGPSCPUIIFBMUIBOE cutting energy costs tQMFOUZPGOBUVSBMWFOUJMBUJPO tQMFBTBOUWJTVBMPVUMPPL tFOTVSFUIFSFJTBEFRVBUFSPPN for sitting tVTFPGDVQCPBSETCPUICFMPX and above working area. tDPPSEJOBUFUIFDPMPVSTBOE materials to provide pleasant atmosphere.

Backlash At great expense to the management, the chains on our drudges’ ankle shackles have been lengthened to allow them to see their friends and families for a week. Thus, this is the last issue until January 1, when the NYE-hangover special edition will be published. The Echo offices will be shut from Friday 21 to Boxing Day, then open every day including Monday December 31. QQQQ

When one looks back over the year or the last decade or two, one sees many of the old issues recycling. The only difference this year is that Fast Buck$’s letter on holiday letting came a week earlier, but the abuse of residential zones by carpetbaggers has yet to be resolved. QQQQ

The local health service memo which told staff not to call each other or clients by familiar terms such as ‘mate’ or ‘darl’ caused a momentary kerfuffle. As others have pointed out, it’s all in the tone and the occasion as to whether or not it’s offensive. At the Echo offices we avoid this contretemps by resolutely using the works of Miss Jane Austen as our guide, and address each other by the proper honorific. Over morning coffee one would frequently hear such phrases as ‘A lady’s imagination is very rapid; it jumps from admiration to love, from love to matrimony in a moment.’ To which the only suitable reply, as set out in office memo #37B, is ‘Indubitably’. QQQQ

Health service chief Chris Crawford managed to send out his Christmas card electronically this year but failed to grasp the concept of blind carbon copy (bcc), thus exposing the recipients’ email addresses to scrutiny. Don’t worry, Chris, al-Qaeda operatives have the same problem. QQQQ

Electric-scooter riders and others beware: an elderly gentleman riding his mobility scooter was greeted by some-

body from behind on a Mullum street. He noticed nothing further but the low-life in question proceeded to nick $60 worth of purchases from the basket at the back of the scooter. So watch out, and also don’t leave valuables in your car at the beach. QQQQ

While on the subject of lowlifes, Coca-Cola is attacking the NT government over its plans to introduce container deposit legisation – read more at www. boomerangalliance.org.au/inthe-media.html. Be aware also that the makers of the most useless product on the planet peddle Mt Franklin water. Buy something else instead or, better still, filter your tap water. QQQQ

Yoko Ono and Sean Lennon placed a full-page ad in the December 10 edition of The New York Times, calling on Governor Andrew Cuomo to ‘Imagine There’s No Fracking… and give clean energy a chance.’ The ad illustrates and describes how cement in wells at such great depths leaks, poisoning drinking water with gases and toxic chemicals. See more at http://artistsagainstfracking. com/have-you-seen-our-ad. QQQQ

Set your bacon free! Australia’s inaugural Meat Free Week, March 18–24, 2013, was unveiled at the 2012 Voiceless Awards in Sydney and launches with a new website – www. meatfreeweek.com. The national week is dedicated to raising awareness of the amount of meat Australians eat and, more importantly, the factory farming practices behind producing it. People can get involved by signing up for the challenge of giving up meat for a week and also raise funds to help end factory farming. If you’re already a vegetarian, perhaps you can give up carrots or something. If you’re a breatharian, the course of action is obvious. Vegans may continue with falling asleep mid-conversation.

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

Merry Christmas from Manik 6685 6432 Shop 3 Byron St Byron Bay manikthehairstudio.com 104 December 18, 2012 The Byron Shire Echo

...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.

<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 – 7.30pm and Thursday 4.30 – 7.30pm Plus 2 Saturdays 9.30 – 3:30pm Commencing 5th February Venue: Cape Byron Steiner School, McGettigans Lane, Ewingsdale Enquiries: Gerry Josephson 0406 788 050
