Holiday letting stirs Spook spotted at MardiGrass after case won A win by neighbours next to a holiday rental in the NSW coastal town Terrigal has put the spotlight on perhaps the Shire’s most contentious issue: holiday letting. Gosford Council failed its constituents by not resolving the issue of an illegal holiday house rental in Terrigal, the Land and Environment Court ruled last Thursday. According to AAP news service, Justice Rachael Ann Pepper said the short-term holiday letting of a sixbedroom house was unlawful because the property is located in a 2A residential zone. Justice Pepper also said that the fault did not entirely lie with the holiday let owner, as she had never been told by Gosford Council that it was illegal to rent out her property. Doug Luke from the newly formed ‘Victims of Holiday Letting’ group told The Echo it’s up to councils to regulate and explain the laws. ‘They are letting us down,’ he says. ‘We need to tread a bit carefully here, but we are really pleased for those people [who won], and we are working on getting the same result. People want it stopped here, not regulated. We need to get back to being a community. ‘Regulation by HLO (Holiday Letting Organisation) is insulting and makes no difference, even with security guards. It only addresses a problem after it occurs – they may address one lot of punters, but next week there’s another.’

use that hasn’t contributed financially to Council to offset the pressures of tourism. In an area already under housing stress such as Byron Bay, it has diminished the available rental stock for locals and has meant that essential workers such as teachers, nurses and tradespeople have not been able to find affordable housing.’

Mayor: too early to tell But Byron Shire mayor Simon Richardson was careful to keep the issue from heating up. He told The Echo that it was too early to tell what the ramifications could be for Byron as a result of the recent Land and Environment Court case. ‘Council has for many years challenged unapproved development in the courts with significant recent successes. ‘However the issue of holiday letting in our shire has focused on whether a tourist facility, as per the Byron LEP 1988, can be operated in a residential zone, and this is yet to be tested.’ He added that Council will hold a meeting with key stakeholders on the issue of holiday letting in June. Meanwhile, John Gudgeon from the Holiday Letting Organisation (HLO) told The Echo it’s a state government responsibility which has lacked leadership. He also says Council has been ‘very ineffective to date’ in addressing behavioural issues that involve both short and long term occupants. ‘HLO’s position is that owners have a right to let their properties whenever they want to, short term or long term. On the other hand, they should ensure that their properties are managed responsibly.’ He says the underlying problem is that short term letting is not captured by the Residential Tenancy Act.

Greens MP and former mayor Jan Barham has also weighed in, saying, ‘The last two Census reports have shown that Byron Bay, where many homes have been given over to holiday lets, has lost permanent residents, and this has seen an erosion of community Q For the full text of Mr Gudgeon’s spirit.

The call to legalise medical cannabis, and to release from jail a man considered a hero by cancer sufferers around Australia who use his free medication, was loud and clear at the 21st annual Nimbin MardiGrass drug law reform rally held at the weekend. Thousands of people again lined up to show their support for drug law reform in a march and festival that included talks by doctors, academics, politicians and activists, as well as the usual workshops on the benefits and wide uses of cannabis which have been suppressed for so long by governments the world over. The mood for change was palpable, especially with the NSW Upper House inquiry findings next week expected to recommend legalising medicinal use of cannabis, but exactly how it will be regulated is yet to be determined. ‘Free Tony Bower’ was the cry that

<echowebsection=Local News>

most reverberated throughout yesterday’s rally along the main street of the counterculture capital of Australia. Mr Bower, 56, is still in custody despite lodging an appeal against the one-year jail sentence handed down by a Kempsey magistrate last month for growing cannabis for medicinal use and producing a free tincture. An appeal date has been set down for June 3.

Tincture stops epilepsy

Help End Marijuana Prohibition (HEMP) president Michael Balderstone said, ‘those who stand in the way of an epileptic child’s seizures being stopped, almost instantly, with no side effects, are very heartless and sick souls’. Greens MP Cate Faehrmann and Labor Richmond MP Justine Elliot also both attended the MardiGrass. Ms Faehrmann was a guest panelist at one of the many forums on drug law reform, while Ms Elliot gathered signatures for a petition against coal seam gas (CSG) mining. Police reported the festival was relatively trouble free and the 3,500 strong crowd mostly well behaved, except for a few alcohol-related incidents. They said there were seven arrests arising from 70 drug detections. For more pics see

Longtime campaigner for legalising medical cannabis, Dr Andrew Katelaris, told a large crowd at MardiGrass the Bower case was an outrage and an example of ‘pharma-fascism’ at work. Dr Katelaris, an expert in postoperative care, said it was shameful that Mr Bower was jailed for helping young children suffering from epilepsy and that his tincture, which Q See the video of this story at stopped them having epileptic fits and kept them alive, was being ignored by Go to medical and legal authorities.

Council targets illegal campers Recent illegal camping which has caused damage to dunes has sparked a number of complaints by Brunswick Heads locals. The problem, according to residents, seems to be getting worse, with many repeat offenders, some in expensive campervans complete with satellite dishes seen at the same spot over several weeks. The hot spots for illegal campers include the area behind the tennis courts near the Brunswick Heads surf lifesaving club, the sportsfields carpark, and on occasions a carpark behind the local school. Residents complained that the illegal campers seemed to act with impunity due to lack of regular patrols, but Byron Shire Council says staff have been trying for weeks to combat the activity.

Extra rangers will also start soon, Council says, to help reduce the problem. Council’s governance manager Ralph James said staff have been trying to solve the street camping issue at Brunswick Heads for over six weeks. ‘Complaints have been received from local residents about campers asserting special rights to public land, and damage to dunes and bush regeneration works,’ Mr James said. ‘Rangers have visited the area on numerous occasions. Information on alternative approved camping grounds and low cost camping sites in the region has been issued along with warnings and fines.’ He said information was provided on the three caravan parks in Brunswick Heads, including one across the river from where people are staying.

The Byron Bay Liquor Accord met for their AGM last Tuesday, with the Office of Liquor, Gaming and Racing (OLGR) chairing. About 40 people were in attendance at the meeting, which represented a cross-section of licensees as well as police, council and local stakeholders. But it wasn’t open to the public or media; an OLGR

When asked about signing up the remaining venues to the accord, Mrs Spalding said that the OGLR sent out letters encouraging them to join, and it’s an ongoing effort. She did say she was happy with the new board. ‘I couldn’t ask for a better cross-section for the new board, with  representatives from a bottle shop and a restaurant, as well as venues’.

An OLGR spokesperson said they did not table a report at the meeting but instead encouraged a discussion on the voluntary measures adopted by the Accord. Other media have previously reported that since the implementation of a 1.30am voluntary lockout, the numbers of assualts have declined.

Byron rates to rise 4.19 per cent for 2013/14 Staff reporters

Byron Shire Council has announced an average rate rise of 4.19 per cent for the coming financial year, an overall increase of $129 for the average residential property. This comprises the 3.4 per cent increase in rates allowed under rate pegging and a higher increase in charges such as water and sewerage not covered by the scheme. Rates in Byron Shire rose by 3.6 per cent this year. Last month Tweed Shire Council announced a rise of 3.4 per cent. While Lismore and Ballina have yet to announce their increases for the coming year, one local media outlet speculated Ballina’s increase could be as high as 5.9

per cent on top of a 5.7 per cent increase this year. Byron Shire mayor Simon Richardson said in a media release the 2013/2014 financial year ‘begins a process of consolidation with a responsible budget that aims to deliver key services based on prioritised community needs’. He added this year’s budget would see a back-to-basics focus on repairing roads and developing a new tip. But he also hit out at the rate-pegging system, which he said was the real cause of Byron’s infrastructure backlog. ‘The past four years have seen significant new assets delivered including the $39 million Brunswick Valley Sewage Treatment Plant, $17 million Byron Regional Sport and Cul-

tural Complex and the $3.75 million Byron Bay Library,’ Cr Richardson said. ‘It’s now time to focus on our ageing roads and drainage network and look for new ways to help fund the increasing replacement costs. ‘This year Council will also aim to finalise the Local Environmental Plan (LEP), develop the proposed Myocum Quarry Landfill, complete the design for the Byron Bay bypass and commence the Roundhouse site subdivision,’ he said. Mayor Richardson said, ‘Council recognises that the shire has a substantial infrastructure backlog and an ageing asset base with roads, drains and bridges. The past 30plus years of rate pegging has not allowed us to keep up to date with these escalating costs.

‘The capital works programs and operational plan have been based on identified priority projects and assets that need to be upgraded,’ he said. For 2013/2014, the General Fund (pegged rates) estimated budget is showing a surplus of $105,800 and an accumulated working fund estimated surplus of $419,100. The General Fund accumulated working fund surplus allows for unanticipated funding provisions for works to occur without going into overdraft. This financial year will see Council have a total operating income of $62.5 million, expenditure at $54.5 million and depreciation at $16.5 million. The budget is expected to fall short of the council’s $1 million accumulated surplus target.

Bangalow Billycart Happy 21st birthday Derby to get airshow Lightforce! ‘We’re pumping it up this year’, says new parade organiser Libby Lund-McDonald of this year’s Bangalow Billycart Derby, to be held on Sunday May 19. Libby says that attractions – other than the derby and parade – will include exhibitions from the Byron Bay Equestrian Centre and Spaghetti Circus, while the Bangalow Fire Bigrade will be bringing Bernie Cynders for the kids. A big drawcard will no doubt be a flyover by a genuine RAAF warbird plane, which is operated by Ballina’s Classic Aero Adventure Flights. ‘We’re waiting on air clearance for aerobatics but it will certainly be doing a flyover,’ she says. UNCLE group are also getting involved, and will be helping kids without a prominent parent build a billycart. Additionally Baulderstone,

the company contracted to build the T2E highway upgrade, has come on board as the major sponsor. ‘By all accounts, the Billycart Derby is a significant and longstanding community event and a major fundraiser for the Bangalow Lions Club,’ says the company’s project director, Vince Newton. ‘In addition to the sponsorship, we will also allocate resources to assist in a practical way on the day with set-up and traffic management.’ Vince continued, ‘Many of our project staff are keen to be involved and have volunteered to organise and set up safety barriers along the route. They will also ensure spectators remain safe during the derby and the grand parade.’ For more visit www.bangalowbillycart.

Bruns has its say on future Story & photo Eve Jeffery

Last Thursday, locals were given the chance to help change to way we live in the future at the Brunswick Heads Community Forum. Participants were invited to contribute ideas to a social plan for the future that takes into account what the community really wants. Ideas generated will be used by Northern Rivers Social Development Council (NRSDC) and Regional Development Australia (RDA) – Northern Rivers to develop a social plan for our region. Forum organiser, Northern Rivers Social Development Council (NRSDC) manager Meaghan Vosz, says the Regional Social Plan will let change makers such as community groups and organisations know what’s important to the people of the northern rivers. ‘Many concerned citizens and organisations are working toward providing services and making our communities better places to live in’, she said. ‘If we can gather more evidence about what is important to the community, we can use this data to advocate and lobby government to bring about the changes we need.’ Data gathered would give community groups extra am-

munition to use in future funding applications for projects intended to improve regional services working and create positive social change.

Lack of transport Ms Vosz said that some of the suggestions for creating a more liveable region included tackling the lack of transport in and around the Tweed area with more cross-border services and the creation of more long-term trials of new transport options. She also said there were ideas for Mullum. ‘Creating a residential village in Mullumbimby with shared gardens and walkways that could generate employment for its residents

was one of the suggestions that tackled the issue of housing supply, social inclusion health, education and employment at the same time’, she said. ‘It could be an operational model for similar developments in other local areas.’ Ms Vosz said the next stage for the Regional Social Plan will be put together a first draft based on the the feedback from community forums held across the seven local government areas in the northern rivers region. Those who would still like to put forward ideas can access the online submission form at until Friday May 17. The Social Plan will be publicly available from August 2013.

Parents rally against benefit cuts Fire Station open day

Story& photo Eve Jeffery

A new action group to advocate on behalf of single parents was formed as a result of a gathering at the Mullumbimby Community Garden on Sunday. Single parents from across Byron Shire came together to discuss the impact of recent cuts to the single parent payment. The morning provided an opportunity for single parents and concerned locals to talk about the challenges of working, raising kids and studying, while suffering recent cuts to the single parent payment by federal Labor. Families shared stories with Greens NSW Senate candidate, Cate Faehrmann MLC, and Greens candidate for Richmond, Dawn Walker. Both women say that forcing sole parents onto Newstart will not tackle the problem of welfare dependency; in fact it will only push vulnerable families towards poverty. â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Today I call on the Labor

According to psychologist and soon-to-be author of Talk Less Listen More, Michael Hawton, dealing with childrenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s behaviour problems is still a major stressor for parents. Hawton says, â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve been taught the best way to deal with behaviour problems is to talk them through with our children. While Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m not against this approach, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s one way of doing it, but the problem is that just talking doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t always work.â&#x20AC;&#x2122; Too much focus has been on what we canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t do, he says. â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;We canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t smack our children. We musnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t yell at them because it makes them cringe. â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re not supposed to criticise them â&#x20AC;&#x201C; the experts tell us itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s bad for them and some leaders in the field say weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re not even meant to praise them.â&#x20AC;&#x2122; So what is a parent to do?

on how to manage Childrenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Difficult Behaviour (2â&#x20AC;&#x201C;12 year old group) where he presents some of his ideas about how to manage challenging behaviours. Hawton is not an advocate of the Positive Parenting approach and believes that parents are confused about what approach they are supposed to take. â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;We are so caught up in this idea that if we are not positively parenting our children we are not doing the right thing,â&#x20AC;&#x2122; he says.

Close bond â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t believe you always have to be positive with children to get a good outcome. â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;And, importantly you can still maintain a close bond with your children even if you have to help them contain their behaviour from time to time. â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;When your kids are misbehaving, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not appropriate to be positive. I suggest, temporarily, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not business as usual, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s time for you to be aloof

and to deal with the problem at hand, which means staying calm, non-emotional and, of course, talking less.â&#x20AC;&#x2122; Hawton believes the first step is for parents to work out what their job is. â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;I think you have to have a long view of where you are going. Your job as a parent is to help our kids mature and teach them to deal with things in proportion.â&#x20AC;&#x2122;

Frustration In fact most of the behaviour problems are a result of what Hawton refers to as â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;frustation toleranceâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;. Smaller children have less ability to tolerate frustration and need to develop the skills and strategies about how to handle things when they donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t go their way. Frustration tolerance should develop with age, and a fiveyear-old cannot be expected to have the same level of tolerance as a ten-year-old. Fear of repeating the patterns of our own parenting can be one

Pundits stack the cards against Gillard Volume 27 #47

May 7, 2013

The right to die It’s not really a right; it’s not even a choice. All of us leave in the end. Death is an intrinsic part of life and the level of fear with which we approach it might reflect how we approached life in general in the preceding years. However, some people are captured by the sister of death: pain. Their lives are not theirs to enjoy and surely it would be humane and just to assist them in escaping their misery when they are calling for aid. Euthanasia, sometimes called assisted death, persists as a national issue, especially with an ageing population. A report, The Right to Choose an Assisted Death: Time for Legislation?, released on April 26 by Australia21 (, restated the arguments in favour and the group’s recommendations to politicians. One of the documents cited by Australia21 is a survey late last year of 2,500 Australians conducted by Newspoll for The survey ‘confirmed ongoing very high public support for legal access to physician-assisted dying in the face of intolerable end-of-life suffering that cannot be relieved. Respondents were strongly in favour of this development across age groups, religious affiliation and political affiliation. But the study went further. It uncovered that more than a quarter (29 per cent) of Australians said they would change their vote if their otherwise most likely candidate or party stance on assisted dying law reform is opposed to their own stance.’ Once again, many politicians lag behind the mood of the electorate in social reform. One who does not is Greens MP Cate Faehrmann who last Thursday introduced into the NSW Upper House a bill giving terminally ill people the right to die. Lobby group GetUp has highlighted Ms Faehrmann’s bill and is conducting its own survey at, where it also provides further background on the debate. There is no choice not to die but there is a choice to be compassionate to those not dying well. Michael McDonald

10 May 7, 2013 The Byron Shire Echo


n normal times, for impartial judges, last week would have counted as a big win for Julia Gillard. Not only did she set up the circumstances to pass one of her big reforms into law; she did so in such a way as to insure it against repeal by any future government, and in the process she brought a previously intransigent opposition around to her own funding model. In politics, it doesn’t get much better. But she has received almost no credit for the achievement, because these are not normal times and those making the judgments are anything but impartial. To them, this was not a win in the true sense of the word: indeed it wasn’t about reform at all, it was a devious piece of politics designed to wedge Tony Abbott, but Abbott was too smart and beat Gillard at her own game. So DisabilityCare will not be an election issue and Abbott, not Gillard, is the real winner. When everything is seen in the context of the campaign battle in which Gillard is the desperate underdog, nothing she does will be taken at face value – well, not until the election is out of the way and something like normal service resumes. For the bulk of the commentariat, the rules of the present game include one unchangeable stricture: Gillard cannot win. And if there are still some deluded members of the public who believe otherwise, it is the duty of the pundits to bring them back to the one true faith. And sure, as always it is partly Gillard’s own fault. Having made the Gonski school reforms the big issue, and the need to get the states onside her overwhelming political imperative, switching the focus to the re-named National

Disability Insurance Scheme was always going to look like confusion, if not a deliberate distraction. But really she had no choice: when Treasury’s latest guesstimate knocked yet another $12 billion off expected revenue it was obvious that her hopes of funding the plan without some new measures would have to be abandoned. Getting it up would involve

or, as the tweeters would no doubt put it, LOL, WTF. However if Abbott avoided the risk of being cast as a kicker of cripples, some of his fellow conservatives were less wary. A couple of weeks earlier a Liberal Party strategist named Toby Ralph had published a piece in which he averred that the real cure for the economy could be found, not, as Craig Emerson had suggested, by a

When everything is seen in the context of the campaign battle in which Gillard is the desperate underdog, nothing she does will be taken at face value. by Mungo MacCallum a levy or something even less palatable, and there was no point in trying to pretend otherwise. But the opposition was less realistic. Its two economic spokesmen, Joe Hockey and Andrew Robb, both continued to insist that sufficient savings from consolidated revenue could be found and Abbott appeared to agree. So Gillard said she would not bring in the legislation; even if the Greens and independents agreed to pass it, there would be little point if an incoming Abbott government (which even she had to admit was at least a possibility) repealed it. Instead, she would make it an election issue and hope for the best. Abbott, sensibly, did not want to be put in a position where he could be portrayed as opposing funds for the disabled and gave way. And this capitulation was parlayed by his cheer squad into a brilliant tactical victory, leaving Gillard, as usual, the loser. Go figure –

slight increase on the superannuation of the fabulously rich, but by a judicious cull of the enormously poor. ‘In contrast to the fabulously rich, the enormously poor make little useful contribution to society,’ Mr Ralph wrote. ‘They consume more than they contribute, putting tremendous strain on the national budget. A modest cull would strike at the root of our fiscal dilemma. ‘This bold initiative would rid us of indolent students, hapless single mums, lowerorder drug dealers, social workers, performance artists, Greenpeace supporters and the remaining processing personnel in our collapsing yet heavily subsidised manufacturing industries.’ He was, of course joking; this was a satire in the vein of Jonathan Swift’s 1792 Modest Proposal that the poor of Ireland avert the famine by selling Q See Mungo live at their children as food for the rich.

Ralph was simply taking a callous free kick, but at least he wasn’t serious. However the CEO of Myer, Bernie Brookes, was totally sincere when he deplored the levy as a bad idea because it meant that people would be handing over their dollar a day to the government instead of spending it productively in his stores. Yes, really. And in response to the inevitable backlash Brookes was only prepared to say that he was sorry if he had offended anybody; he did not resile from a single brutal word. Truly, this is capitalism red in tooth and claw. But perhaps we should not have been surprised. The other big news of the week was that Westpac, the last of the big four banks, had announced its final profit, and, as always, it was another all time record. The banks’ economic model dictates that this has to be the case every year: not just a massive profit but an all time record profit. And if that means raising fees, cutting services and sacking staff, well, so be it. That’s what they call economic rationalism. Westpac’s announcement meant that the total annual profits of the big four came to just over $25 billion. To put that in context, Gillard’s great big new half a per cent levy was expected to raise just $3.3 billion a year. But, looked at another way, the profits of the big four, if added to Gillard’s levy, would cover the whole of both Gonski and DisabilityCare. The lot, from one year’s plunder. Such are the priorities of our glorious free enterprise system.

Now what to do with disused rail? Q Barry O’Farrell says the Mur-

willumbah–Casino line will remain closed. However all is not lost. Researching on the internet as to what other countries have done to utilise their disused railway lines I find that they have turned them into very successful ‘rail parks’ for tourists using pedal-powered vehicles and also for private commuters. France, UK, USA, Canada, South Korea have tourist rail parks. Disused railway stations have been spruced up and are now rest stops with cafés and shops along the lines. Pedal-powered vehicles are in many designs, seating passengers side by side, in tandem, some take even four or six pedallers. Some rail-runner vehicles are home-made,

Residents have say Claims that residents will lose the right to have their voice heard under reforms announced by the NSW government are incorrect. The new planning system gives councils the opportunity to develop their own faster code-based approvals. There could also be different codes within the same council area. The codes will cover issues of concern to neighbours including height, privacy, overshadowing and streetscape, including set-backs and landscaping. They would only support new villas, townhouses or mixeduse developments, for example, when areas have been set aside for this (after comprehensive community engagement). Most states have already adopted policies to increase code-based assessment outcomes to improve the certainty and quality of new urban outcomes. Importantly, architects have supported our reforms because they believe they will result in good design. The faster code-based development approvals will only

Showground future Mullumbimby Showground is over 100 years old and is about to get revamped. An early draft plan of management is up for discussion at a session at the showground on Saturday May 11 from 3pm. The plan will describe how the ten hectare Crown reserve is to be used for the benefit of the community. It is dedicated as a showground but also used by groups like Spaghetti Circus and the Friday Farmers Market. There are opportunities for new uses, too, like camping.

The new plan is likely to include increasing patronage to help pay the way, getting into some long-overdue maintenance and replacement of infrastructure, and keeping the grass mown.

A rail trail will be fantastic for the northern rivers, bringing jobs and business to the area as well as a healthy tourism. Towns like Eltham, Mooball and Stokers Siding will come to life again. Byron Bay will benefit by having a usable bikeway for locals, thereby reducing cars in the CBD. So many people say they would cycle if safe to do so. Obviously we need to get funding and work is being done towards this right now. We also need support from the local people and council. If you support the idea please email me at

Byron Bay object is transparently about reducing spending. In his first term of office John Howard, by disbanding the CES and privatising the employment services, absolved his government of responsibility for the unemployed. These organisations and Centrelink then became the dole police. I was pretty certain that in his second term he would do something to further disempower the unemployed and what we got was ‘breaching’. Breaching was the suspension of payments for minor, not to say trivial, infractions of regulations. I was a volunteer at the community centre at the time so I know how devastating this was to people’s lives. Requests for emergency relief rose exponentially. Some people were even evicted from their homes because they were unable to pay the rent. But it was all just a cynical exercise in social engineering designed to make welfare re-

Illegal letting On a recent Council-conducted site inspection in Banga-

low when I claimed that the residential components of the over-sized building would be more likely marketed for holiday letting than ‘affordable housing’ as the developer wanted us to believe, Ray Darney, Council’s planning director, announced to us all that holiday letting is ‘illegal’. I share his belief, soundly based on the LEP, but until Council takes action, in court if necessary, this means nothing to the many residents regularly driven mad by the holiday letting that is now happening throughout the Shire, in particular beachside Suffolk Park, much of Byron and even com-

ing inland, eg to Bangalow. At the top of Hayters Hill a large billboard proudly announces ‘Holiday Letting’ in front of what I belive to be a B&B and I understand there is much more of this sort of advertising, including on the net. Matthew Hartley calls the practice an ‘illegal tourist business operation’, which it is, and I support him, Doug Luke and others in working on strategies to stop it. Perhaps they could invite people to ring them with the facts and we could present a detailed list to Council and demand they take action, not pull back as they recently did; I’d happily be part of this.

And what of the talk fests to save Byron from a repeat of last New Years Eve? Have any positive policies or strategies emerged ? Jenny Coman


Declaration day This year’s Bangalow billycart derby sees the celebration of a CSG free Bangalow. It’s Declaration Day and Derby Day combined. On Sunday May 19, we will declare Bangalow and surrounds gasfield free by an overwhelming majority. This is a successful community movement of independent residents affording time and effort to an-

swer to an invasive and risky industry. Even if we falsely should believe we are not directly threatened by gas mining, it is paramount for every town and region in Australia to reach this point of a public declaration. It is a symbol of true democracy and demonstrates that a grassroots process of door-to-door knocking can yield honest results. This will prepare us for future resistance. It gives people a great instrument for realising sustainable goals. To say ‘I am against it’ and to know you are being heard and your voice is being counted is empowering. Once


we have established that we do not want the destruction and pollution of our living environment we can move on to ‘open the gate’ to sustainable solutions. That’ll be fun. It will hopefully motivate us to set the wheels in motion for solar and wind power. Have you seen a koala lately? We have a resident koala in the few scattered gum trees along Friday Hut Road. This little fellow is one of the many reasons for me to get involved with the anti-CSG movement. By the way, the CSG free Bangalow group will need a billycart for the derby.

Where’s the recycling? Three years ago, the council sponsored by the federal government introduced ‘low-energy’ light bulbs and enthusiastically replaced all incandescent bulbs with compact fluorescent bulbs in people’s homes to anyone who signed up. Did anyone know at the time that these bulbs contain mercury? I raised my concern with Council who assured me they were working on a CFL recycling program. Where is this recycling program? These bulbs are being chucked out and land in our landfill where the bulbs are bound to be broken, and the mercury released into the environment. Does this concern you?

The excuse given by councillors to sell the community capital asset that is the Roundhouse site is their budget shortfall. Perhaps if all Ocean Shores and North Ocean Shores stopped paying their rates Council could try rectify their budget shortfall with other sources of income. I’m sure there would be plenty of council land across the shire up for grabs. In the meantime to add to Cr Di Woods’s list, Ocean Shores residents could pay contractors directly to fix the numerous potholes, put in footpaths along the busy roads, fix up the absolutely appalling developing world conditions of South Golden Beach roads, fix drainage in New Brighton/ South Golden, install lighting, the big one – make sportsfields, establish parks for kids to play across all Ocean Shores, clean up dangerous beach access after the storms, rather than the council sign: ‘beach access closed’ two months on, fix the road at New Brighton falling into the river, and the rest… There are thousands of residents in the Ocean Shores/ Billinudgel/Pocket area paying rates.

CSG: the divided community of Tara

Iris Ray Nunn

The other Monday, a crew of us from the northern rivers were taken on a tour of the Kenya coal seam gas (CSG) fields. This mine is situated roughly between Tara and Chinchilla in Queensland. Our guide was Dayne Pratzky, a man passionately sharing his concerns about the far-reaching problems associated with â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;frackingâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; our countryâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s coal seams. In one day we saw firsthand the multitude of issues caused from the presence of the CSG industry â&#x20AC;&#x201C; from mining vehicles monopolising the roads to seriously stressed residents who fear for their lives. We made jokes around the fire that night about Tara, being like the â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;wild westâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;, but really, living in a gas field is no laughing matter. One couple who helped a neighbour blockade his property for three months can no longer go to the local supermarket because of constant harassment from pro-miners. This same couple had been protesting in Miles two nights before and had shots fired off in their direction. Witnessing the Condamine River bubbling like a spa bath was very disturbing. Government officials report it is a naturally occurring phenomenon, but it

Like the anti-hero Peer Gynt, Terry has been on a long journey through life with many adventures and has now returned to the house that he grew up in. He is working on still another version of that most complicated fairy-tale. He says it is nearly finished but hasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t quite found the last words of the song which brings the curtain down.

across the river. Hurfordâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s sawmill was burning down. â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the hippies. They started that fire,â&#x20AC;&#x2122; accused some of the aldermen. The Hurfords couldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have held with this because years later I was producing yet another of my Peer Gynts and a bouncy, 16-year-old Kate Hurford was auditioning for it. She pressed me to see her mother about promoting ticket sales, so I went to see Mrs Hurford and she was delightful and more than willing to help. Even so she couldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have missed that Kate was wagging school to be in the show. I did develop another MO and again it was that troublemaker Basil. He just happened to know of a wonderful property at Larnook. At the right price of course. This time I thought Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d try a different setup. Still a â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;cooperativeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; but with â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;freeholdâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; on each little house block. The rest of property could then be shared as â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;commonsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;. Otherwise people tended to â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;selectâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; more land than they needed â&#x20AC;&#x201C; just to keep potential neighbours away.

The future looks bright for Kieren Story Eve Jeffery Local surfer Kieren Perrow became the man of the minute, a local legend and king of the world in 2011 when he won the Pipe Masters on the island of Oahu, Hawaii. Byron Bay born and bred, Kieren has moved, changed and grown with the sport of surfing and he is excited about the future. I caught up with KP as he prepared to head to the Billabong Rio Pro which starts in Brazil on Wednesday. Though Byron and beyond sees KP as one of the axis of awesome, there was life before the Pipe â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Kieren was actually an excellent student in his school years and rumours of straight A marks and echoes of math and physics are part of his make-up. Kieren completed his HSC by the time he was 17 and he then moved toward his surfing career, but says things have changed in the attitude of junior surfers and they have their eye much more on the the prize in the 21st century. â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s different now. When I was going through school, the juniors were just getting strong and there wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t the focus of 10, 11 and 12-year-olds to start competing to get a career, so I didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t really start travelling internationally until after I left school.â&#x20AC;&#x2122; Kieren was accepted into university but deferred. â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;I gave myself a year to do the juniors to see where it led me. In that year I won the world junior champs.â&#x20AC;&#x2122; The rest, as they say, it history. Kieren is looking forward. The big news is that next year the ASP structure will be reborn. What started and grew as an organic

ocean mix has matured into a pearl and itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s about to be polished. â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;The structure of the ASP is changingâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;, says KP. â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;The sport up until now has been run by a collaboration of surfers and the brands, and that has been at the top level, at the board level, and both the surfers and the events, that is the brands, had co-ownership of surfing.â&#x20AC;&#x2122; Kieren feels that the ASP and surfing as a sport has been held back to a degree, by a lack

of resources and that an injection of different eyes will take it into the future. â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;The new structure, in essence, is a new partnership with a group of people who have come in and made a proposal to take over the sport of surfing and to take it to the next level.â&#x20AC;&#x2122; Kieren says he is very comfortable with the new regime which was presented to the people of the ASP from the start. â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s great! All the surfers, everyone got to see their plan and structure and how it will be implemented and we had a decision to make on whether it was good or not. I mean, there is always an element of trust and rolling the dice but the surf industry is hurting so itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s given them some relief and they are bringing some amazing people into the divisions.â&#x20AC;&#x2122; Keep up with what KP is up to on the ASP website â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Q More of this interview will be published in Echo Beach in Echonetdaily next week â&#x20AC;&#x201C;

Groms keeping surfing strong Where would we be without the groms? Seriously? In an industry that is moving forward apace, it is todayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s grommets and their ability to gain a good foundation in the water, that will be the strength of tomorrowâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s champions. This will keep Australia, as ever, as the force to be reckoned with in the international arena. Since 2010, Surfing Australia has received funding to develop a robust national junior program for primary aged children. The Vegemite SurfGroms is the flagship participation program to come out of this new funding and presents an amazing opportunity to engage thousands of primary-aged children, introducing them to the fun and healthy lifestyle that surfing can offer. This is the first time in surfingâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s history that a nationally available program, encouraging kids to engage in the sport of surfing, has been available anywhere in the world. Surfing Australia has worked hard to reach this point, and with the support of the federal government through the Australian Sports Commission (ASC), has developed a robust, innovative and cutting edge junior

development program for kids Australia-wide. SurfGroms is exclusively available through Surfing Australiaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s network of licensed surf schools to anyone aged between five and 12 years, regardless of experience or ability. SurfGroms develops a proficiency in surfing that kids can enjoy and embrace for a lifetime, and offer youngsters an opportunity to have fun at the beach while developing strong ocean awareness and beach safety skills at a very influential period in their lives. The program forms the base of Surfing Australiaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s sport development pathway, ensuring that more participants continue surfing throughout their lifetime, ingraining into them a healthy lifestyle that is proudly Australian. The program consists of a series

Surf Report There looks to be some great waves on offer this week for surfers along the north coast. A strong south swell will peak Tuesday and Wednesday morning at around 4â&#x20AC;&#x201C;5 feet and slowly drop during the week to around two feet. Winds will be light all week with south west to south east winds early in the week tending more northerly later in the week. There will be plenty of options so search around for some uncrowded waves.

Mullum wellwishers help out in Ethiopia Andrea Herraman

Three Mullumbimby locals have recently returned to our long, wet summer from the dry, rugged heights of northern Ethiopia where water can be as precious as diamonds. Diana Ewing, Michael Leach and Nick Paris visited the Tigray region to inspect wells funded by WellWishers, a Mullumbimby-based organisation funding wells that are dug, maintained and used by local villagers. They arrived home hoping that our community can help provide funds to dig more. WellWishers is the creation of locals Ross and Marianne Allan and has helped build 510 wells over the past ten years. One well costs $6,000 and assists on average 430 people. ‘We’ve been associated with the wells program since 2002, having seen firsthand the villagers’ need for wells and the BRING potential for clean water to THIS COUPON IN dramatically improve their FOR BEST lives. Encouraged by those who joined us on our journey… we RATE!

Thanks for the bags of bread, the punnets of tomatoes, the endless plethora of potatoes, onions, spinach, coriander, broccoli, cucumber and every vegetable known to Man, God and Woolworths!… which have been discarded due to the slightest cosmetic inadequacies yet still nourish and satisfy me.

Frankly, thanks for being great, I love you; I only hope that through your mindfulness and inge-

continue to raise funds for this rewarding initiative,’ say Ross and Marianne. A village well, like the two visited by Diana, Nick and Michael in May-sheho, near Axum (like many areas of Ethiopia at an altitude of over 2,000m and arid), provides staggering health and social benefits. Once a well is built the village women and children can access clean water quickly and easily. This has markedly reduced the incidence of dysentery and

gastroenteritis, resulting in significantly fewer children dying from these preventable diseases. According to Diana, ‘The wells visit was the highlight of our trip – very heart-warming. They were beautifully constructed from local stone by the local people, obviously their pride and joy. The communities have peace of mind that their water is clean and pure with regular water monitoring.’ The wells are built under the guidance of REST (Relief Soci-

charity was set up 12 months ago called The Grace Space. We have provided hot meals, transport, tents, bedding, mattresses, friendship and a listening ear regularly since then. Currently we are unable to find a base to work from, so we tend to rove around town meeting the needs of any person in front of us from the fringes of our community. We have no agenda to fix or change but offer love and friendship and meet practical needs when possible. We currently provide hot soup, rolls, music and fun around a fire every second Monday evening. We are not affiliated with any particular group, religious or otherwise, and are self funded.

Lack of support

Odette, in reply to your letter of last week – yes, there is a distinct lack of support and facilities in Mullum for those in our mental health community and those who sleep rough on the streets. Added to this, the council has now cordoned off the only covered area that was previously used by rough sleepers and they face a $550 fine for trespassing. However things are progressing, albeit slowly. A

ety of Tigray), a non-religious group that is the Ethiopian partner organisation of WellWishers. The Ethiopian government advises which areas have the most need and REST organises hydrological surveys to determine location and depth of the aquifers. Says Michael: ‘We were able to see firsthand how efficiently the pumps worked and how much the wells were being used. When we arrived at the wells, the villagers were effusive in their gratitude and appreciation for the huge difference this has made to their lives. This was quite an emotional experience for us.’ To help build another well donations can be made out to WellWishers with The Echo as your reference to go into a special fund. Please provide postal and email addresses to get tax receipts. Donations can be made by new donors to WellWishers, PO Box 670, Mullumbimby 2482, or online at I like your wording ‘sensitive folk’ – and yes, that can be any of us at some stage in our lives, so easy for people on the fringe to fall through the cracks. We would certainly welcome any kind of support from the Mullum community and surrounds. We would love to have a base to work from and we could certainly do with a generous philanthropist! This is a community opportunity and we would love to hear from anyone interested in helping to make something amazing happen. We can be contacted on or on freecall 1300 846 649. This number is also our 24-hour helpline. Sunflower

Here and Now: Nimbin, Sunday, 1.47pm, the IGPE

It’s cooler today which makes conditions a little more comfortable for the competitors. Not that being a competitor in the Iron Grower Person Event (IGPE) is ever really comfortable. The IGPE is a test of endurance that pushes athletes to the very limits of their abilities. José from Chile has the IGPE stash in his hand and is running with it up the Hill of Torment (HOT) towards the

finish line. His time so far is good – one minute 15 seconds – but over the years I have seen many an Iron Grower Person Event Athlete (IGPEA) beaten by the HOT. José looks almost done in. He went hard in the Bag of Chook Shit (BOCS) stage, carrying the 20kg bag across his shoulders as he sprinted down to the Turning Tree (TT). Carrying the bag across both shoulders is a style favoured by IGPEAs from the Americas and Japan, whereas

European athletes tend to hug the bag to their stomachs. European coaches believe keeping the athlete’s centre of gravity low increases traction around the TT. Those that follow this sport closely will tell you that it’s not a good idea to go too hard early on. The BOCS stage can sap a lot of energy; energy that will be needed for the Water Carry (WC) and Lantana Tunnel of Death (LTOD) stages. And, of course, the HOT.

But this is the 2013 Hemp Olympix IGPE final, and in the true spirit of this sport (athletes are not paid more than teachers and drug test results are always positive), José is giving it everything. He pushes up towards the finish line, those big legs pumping, his naked chest shining with sweat. After two days of intense competition in the heats, it has come down to just seconds. The best time so far is one minute 24 seconds set by local athlete Forrest from Byrill Creek. In what scribes are already calling ‘one of the gutsiest displays since the advent of the modern Hemp Olympix in 1894’, it was Forrest’s second run in the session. In his first attempt he seemed dazed and confused. This is not an uncommon phenomenon even at the highest levels of

Hemp Olympix. What is uncommon is that anyone should choose to run the IGPE twice in the same year, let alone less than 50 minutes after the first attempt. I have officiated at many Hemp Olympix, but Forrest’s run up the HOT with spectators chanting ‘Run, Forrest, run!’ and seeing the plucky response of this young athlete – a mere boy with a pipe dream – certainly ranks as one of sport’s most memorable moments. José is nearly there. The crowd falls quiet. There’s something in the air. Even the Police Team, still here despite losing to the hippies in the Tug of Peace, can smell it. José, gasping now, is just a few strides from the line; a few seconds from sporting history; a few seconds from a possible podium placing.

Forrest ran one minute 24. José’s time is announced to the crowd. One minute 21. José’s magnificent legs are buckling. One minute 22. Though still metres away, José lunges for the line, extending his long arm and just managing to push the IGPE stash across the line. One minute 23 seconds! The crowd erupts. Many of the spectators would love to jump to their feet but, hey, most can’t. José lies panting on the grass. Forrest shakes his hand and checks his pulse. The Police Team looks for trouble. A Ganja Faerie kneels beside José and gives him water. Their eyes meet. And hold. Denmark’s champion, Andreas, the final finalist, strides to the IGPE start line.

The Expo is by no means the only player in this process. Recognition has to go to the many exhibitors and sponsors that have supported this event over the years. Without this ďŹ nancial support there would be no event. The Northern Rivers Careers Expo is proudly supported by long term â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;big playerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; in the training sector, North Coast TAFE, and welcomes them as one of the Expo Partners for 2013. In addition to being an Expo Partner North Coast TAFE is also a major contributor to the interactive nature of the event, bringing a huge variety of exhibits and hands-on activities for visitors to explore through the Try a Trade exhibit, which is also sponsored and organisd by CONNECT Workplace Learning and the Richmond, Tweed and Clarence councils. Exhibition organiser Ashley Burke-Smith comments, â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s so much more valuable for someone to touch, feel and try out a trade or skill rather than take home a ďŹ&#x201A;yer. Young people today are used to visual and interactive information â&#x20AC;&#x201C; expecting them to join a profession by giving them a brochure is not going to work. You need to let them literally have a go and see if they like it. TAFE really brings this element to the Expo and it makes a real difference to the likelihood that someone will choose a skill or trade in demand.â&#x20AC;&#x2122; The other Expo Partner for 2013 is TOCA who, for the second year running, are offering career paths into the exciting world of Drift Racing, Automotive Management, Mechanical Technology and Motorsports programs. Not only do students get to tinker under the hood of a high-performance vehicle, they get to learn techniques from professional drifters and

Byron Bay Triathlon 2013 Saturday May 11 12 noon to 3.45pm The Byron Bay Triathlon is steeped in history and is now in its 18th year. It is an Olympic Distance event and attracts around 1,300 competitors from many different countries. Traditionally it is held on the second weekend in May every year and signals the last race in the QLD/NSW triathlon calendar. As a result it is often seen as an end of season party for many competitors with a big party on the Saturday night. Due to its fantastic location, many competitors also bring their family, stay for a week and relax in the beautiful Byron Shire. The Byron Bay Tri is

regarded by many as one of the friendliest triathlons on the coast. Competitors enjoy a 1.5km ocean swim in the crystal clear, tranquil waters of Byron Bay; a 40km cycle past cane ďŹ elds, rainforest, coastal bush and the gently rolling farmland of Northern NSW; then they top it all off Byron Bay CBD zoom in with a run through the streets, under the FINISH picturesque Byron START TC Bay Lighthouse.

Are you the type of mother that you imagined you would be? Tell me what you thought you would be and what you really are? F: I always imagined Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d have a whole tribe of kids around me, especially girls, so I could have the whole family band thing. However I got lucky and had a very portable, clean and delightful golden boy with a dimple. Motherhood is the ultimate surprise: you get what you get and you donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t get upset. What kind of mum am I? AWESOME! J: I imagined myself as an earth goddess, but it turns out Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m more of an airy-fairy godawful housekeeper. M: I never imagined myself as a mother. As a young woman I thought mothers were daggy, unglamorous failures at real life. Ghosts in cars outside soccer. Now I have five kids. Karma or coincidence? Now I am the ghost who sits in the car. What do you think you give to your kid/s that no other mumma could? F: I give my boy the big strong mama clause; I am his ferocious defender, feeder and nurturer. EAT! My other name is Aunty Food. J: Lunchboxes full of metaphors. Case in point: my flimsy sandwiches. I tell my kids theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re just like our family: they may look like theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re barely holding it together, but at the end of the day, theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re still (a) yummy and (b) technically a sandwich. M: A deep understanding that everything and everyone is full of bullshit. Once you accept that, everything is possible. What is the one lesson that you want to give to your brood? F: Oh to love his mother no matter what. Be courageous and stand your ground, to question everything and charm your way through life. J: To just get out there, find their passion in life and follow it. M: Dishes donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t wash themselves. How do you make them listen? F: By my tone of voice and repeating myself a number of times, at least five. J: I love that this question presumes I have worked that out! M: I cut the cords on their iPod headphones What is the cutest or quirkiest little wisdom that you kid/s have shared with you? F: At two years of age in the bathtub trying to put some large Lego together he looked up to me and said â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;OH THIS IS FUTILE!â&#x20AC;&#x2122; J: My then 6-year-old son, after declaring for months he wanted to be adopted by a Sith Lord: â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Darth Vader might be

the most awesome, but I bet he canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t cuddle as good as you!â&#x20AC;&#x2122; M: Ivy my 4-year-old lying on the trampoline looking wistfully at the sky, says, â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t think the handsome prince will ever come.â&#x20AC;&#x2122; I am hearing you, sister. What do you think is the essence of a good motherâ&#x20AC;&#x201C; child relationship? F: Listening and cuddles. J: Treating it as just that: a relationship, rather than a job. M: Not adding each other on Facebook. Understanding the difference between being mother and friend and being grownup enough to know that a kid needs a mother. How do mothers maintain their mojo? Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s hard to have a swagger and wink when youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re bent over at the sinkâ&#x20AC;Ś F: Do something kind for me everyday no matter what. It only has to take five or 10 minutes, but a happy mother is a happy family in my book. J: In small but meaningful expressions of pizzazz, eg I continue to wear thongs as my preferred mode of footwear, but now they have sequins. M: Have a designated Mum in the Nude Day. The kids will get themselves to school. What advice would you give a new mother? F: Do what you wanna do, be what you wanna be, yeahâ&#x20AC;Ś ooooo. Remember yourself, be kind to yourself daily, noone else will. J: There is no such thing as a perfect parent (or a perfect child!) Just take the pressure down and try to enjoy the ride while each stage lasts. M: Give up your crown, Princess, the glory years of Me First are over. What is the biggest lie you were told as a new mumma? F: Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m so belligerent Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d cut them off before they told me any lies. J: That disciplining kids was just a matter of counting to three. M: That they sleep. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d love you to tell me a little bit about your mother â&#x20AC;&#x201C; what is it about her (or was it about her) that made your heart sing? F: My mother was a super model in the 60s and I loved her style: an English rose but with fire of a dragon. In the 1970s she set up a sex forum in Bundaberg, rural Queensland! To educate women about rape and what is okay and what is not. She was fearless and eccentric and loved to say Fuck in high society just to shock everyone. I

carry her flame and she is the wind in my voice. J: My real mum was a singer, a beautiful woman. Before she died when I was five, I used to go see her at gigs and be so proud that the woman everybody was watching was â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;my mummyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;! She was very hands-on and affectionate. Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d bake biscuits, ride our bikes, go to the beach, then at night sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d go perform. She absolutely inspires me to pursue my passion while still being the mum I want to be. M: My mum was a feminist and a singer too. Maybe thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s something in loudmouthed wannabe showgirls spawning more loudmouth wannabe showgirls. Oh dear. And there I was hoping my girls would get real jobs! What was the most annoying thing your mother did? F: My mother died too young. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the selfishness I canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t stand. J: When I was five, my mother died. I then went to live with my grandma. Soon after, Grandma took me for my first ever haircut. Grandma sat me in the chair, handed me my first ever cream bun, which distracted me in a whirlwind of sugar until I looked up and realised to my horror that all my hair was gone and I was now, for all intents and purposes, a boy. M: The wraparound skirt she used to wear as a dress, which the wind lifted and showed her boobs to my Year 5 class. What is the most annoying thing you do? F: My jaw clicks when I chew. Too much talking and singing! J: Rocking up at their extremely conservative school with different coloured hair every few weeks. M: I never admit Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m wrong even when Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m wrong, which is wrong but Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll never admit it. Is that wrong? Alright Mumma, how would you make the world a better place? F: Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d insist on monthly massage for everyone. More barbecues and chatting and an even distribution of wealth for the whole planet; just simple things really. What the world needs nowâ&#x20AC;Ś is loveâ&#x20AC;Ś J: By running workshops on how to infuse your crappy lunch boxes with metaphor. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d call it â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Morning Tea is Slices Of My Heartâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;. M: I would remove money and replace it with cake. That way we could have our cake and eat it too. Monday at the Byron Services Club. Tickets are $15 at the club or can be booked on 6619 0529.

Ever since my kids have had independent movement Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve battled the marketing ploys of flagrant consumerism. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m not alone. This is a merchandising battlefield designed to capture all our wallets, one angry desirous kid at a time. Someone somewhere came up with the brilliant idea of putting sugary consumables at toddler grasp. Better still, when Mum (or Dad) has finally made it to the checkout, why not hit them with one last push, ensuring that your angry sugar-fuelled midget doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t leave the shop without some sort of diabetes starter pack. This being said, with five children in tow I have dropped an untold amount of cash into the system. Hundreds of thousands of dollars have slipped into the big ugly river of cash that we call our economy. There is an unspoken social contract that ensures the customer is treated with some sort of positive regard that implies that they matter and that even the potential of their business is important. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not like you walk into a store and the retailer looks up and says, â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Get out. I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t like your shoes.â&#x20AC;&#x2122; Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s in the interest of any business for their staff to be friendly, courteous and non-judgmental. Who can really tell who has the power to spend? In business, I would assume that every dollar is a dollar worth capturing. Let me tell you a little story, a kind of fable about three little girls, who for the sake of this story will be piggies, who were bullied and maligned by a big bad wolf. So this is what happened. Once upon a time there were three little piggies. Well they werenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t that little, and they werenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t that big. They were in-betweeny piggies â&#x20AC;&#x201C; frolicking in the twilight that exists between piglet and sow. The three teen pigs decided to go to Byron Bay. The first little piggy came from Mullumbimby, the second little piggy came from Goonellabah and the third little piggy lived in town. The piggies went to the beach. There they swam, sunbaked until they smelt like cooking bacon, and took photos of themselves that they could

upload onto Pigbook so their other little piggy friends could make piggy comments about their posts like â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;you lucky pigsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;. The piggies were being picked up by their piggy mums so, with just an hour to fill, the three teeny piggies decided to have a trot around the shops. Byron â&#x20AC;&#x201C; bay of pigs! There were pigs everywhere. Backpacking pigs, hippy pigs, rich pigs, old pigs, young pigs. The three piggies just loved the excitement of running with the pig pack. They went to their favourite store. Pigpen. It was full of the latest fashions for teenie pigs. Behind the counter was a wolf, but the piggies didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t know she was a wolf because she was wearing red lipstick and smiling so broadly that they thought she was just another unusual looking pig. Red-lipped Wolf came over and snarled, â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve been watching you piggies. We have been looking for piggies just like you.â&#x20AC;&#x2122; The first little piggy got very excited. She thought they were being offered modelling jobs for Pigpen. The piggies eagerly gave their names and their schools, thrilled that they were going to be super pigs. Then the wolf told them to get out because they were dirty little thieves and she had footage of them stealing from a month ago although she didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t actually see them herself, but they matched the description given by someone else who worked there. â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;But weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re pigs!â&#x20AC;&#x2122; cried one of the teeny pigs. â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;We all look the same.â&#x20AC;&#x2122; So in came the Mummy Pig, who was very cranky and who told the not so big but very patronising wolf that the teeny pigs were at school in another town at the time and that she was wrong. But the stupid Wolf would not back down and apologise; she keeps huffing and puffing and so the little pigs were humiliated and embarrassed and left feeling strangely victimised and unfairly accused for something they hadnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t done. They were guilty for just being in-betweeny pigs. One week later Mummy Pig gets a text from the red-lipped Wolf admitting that she had eaten the wrong pigs. The moral of the story is, if you accuse someone of shoplifting then you better make sure you have the right pig. Teenagers should be treated with the same respect as adults. Otherwise itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s just an outright case of bullying. And next time, Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll call the pigs.

Kaki King and I AFTER AN EXTENDED BREAK BETWEEN AUSTRALIAN TOURS KAKI KING RETURNS WITH A NEW ALBUM BACK IN FRONT OF AN AUDIENCE THAT HAS EMBRACED HER GENIUS SINCE HER FIRST VISIT BACK IN 2007. KAKI KING HAS A CHAT WITH THE ECHO WHILE IN TRANSIT TO PORTUGAL. What are the challenges that you face as a solo artist? It can get lonely sometimes. I’m also under a microscope during a show and any mistakes that happen are my own. I don’t share the risk or the reward with anyone, and that can feel isolating at times. Being solo and instrumentalist could have been risky; there’re not many women out there doing it? Why do you choose to tell your stories this way? I don’t think I have a choice really. This is the music that grabs me, has always held my attention more than anything else. I write the music that I want to hear or that just comes out whether I hear it first or not. In an industry that often markets women neatly packaged as sexual products, how have you forged your own path? I just did what I wanted to at all times. This had different results at times musically, but thankfully no-one has ever tried to change me or what I feel natural doing. Do you have other women role models – musicians or artists who have inspired you, by their mentoring, or at least by their vision? You know I grew up in the 90s so PJ Harvey and Bjork were these two massively important women to me, but mainly because their music was just so intense and sounded so unique to them. They presented themselves as musicians first and as female musicians second, or third, or not at all; at least that’s how I saw them and for that I will always be grateful. Do you love doing soundtracks? Your music seems so expansive and visual; it’s weird – lyrics tend to contrive very particular pictures. Are you aware of the visual or visceral nature of

MUSIC FOR MOTHER EARTH The Art of Mother Earth and Ku Promotions are proud to present an uplifting show of music for inner peace by national and international touring spiritual musicians Prem and Jethro Williams of Sacred Earth. Based in the Yarra Valley, Victoria, Sacred Earth is the creation of Jethro and Prem Williams. The duo have been travelling the world for nine years performing live the music of Sacred Earth. Prem shares with us her heartfelt devotion for spirit and our precious Mother Earth through mantra and songs from the heart. Prem is supported

your work when you are composing or playing? I could go on for days about the emotional/musical connection. It’s the thing I think about most. I am aware of the feelings that my music gives me, but I never expect anyone else to have the same feelings. I just hope that it is always moving or revealing to someone. So it was your hand on August Rush! All that time I thought it was the kid. Do you relate to deeper themes of the story? Would you consider yourself a prodigy or is it something only we can say about you? I know how hard I practised and how far I’ve come. Definitely not a prodigy. Your tunings and your techniques are very imaginative. How do you get to these places? What is your process? Do something repetitively for 30 years, and first you get good, then you get bored, then you change everything you can so the boredom will stop and you can keep doing it and don’t have to get a real job instead. How do you want your music to affect your audience? I like it when people tell me they get relief from a difficult time, or a high from a certain upbeat song, or that they didn’t know how sad they were about something until they were thinking about it and listening to one of my songs. I am honoured when people are moved by what I do. How does it affect you? I don’t know how I’m affected anymore. It’s just what I do. I breathe and I eat and I play guitar. If you took it away I’d probably be dead. What should we expect for your show in Mullumbimby? Lots of very cool guitars. New material from Glow and a selection of the best of the old stuff. Snarky comments about modern life. Kaki King is at the Mullumbimby Civic Hall on Sunday with Reilly Fitzalan (Byron Bay MMF Youth Mentorship Winner) 8pm. Tickets and info: / T: 6684 6195.

So tell me how was the Capetown International Jazz Festival? Did audiences dig your rather off-beat and irreverent approach? Capetown Jazz Festival was fantastic; there was such a vast array of styles there where it seemed everything was fair game. Acts such as the Robert Glasper Experiment with MF Doom blew everyone away with the jazz/hip-hop fusions and the amazing Jill Scott oozed class on her main stage show. For the Dubmarine set, we performed on the bassline stage, which featured the â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;heavierâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; styles of music. We had a great show with a big crowd that seemed to be right into it â&#x20AC;&#x201C; which was a good thing as we were the first Australian act to perform at the festival ever. How have the crowds and the shows been building in Brisbane? The crowds on the Beat in Control single launch tour have been really fantastic. We had over 700 people to our hometown Brisbane show and full rooms in Sydney and Melbourne as well as the rest. The tour really could not have gone better. Furthermore the crowds who have been coming to the shows have been so awesome. We have loved every minute of it! What do you think is the essence of a power punch Dubmarine show? I think the strength behind the Dub show is the intention of entertaining our audience and really delivering the best experience we can. These are the sorts of acts I really enjoy to watch as a punter, the full immersion into the world of the artist, so this is what we try to deliver. It is really a great thing to watch; I never get sick of it. If you had to look back to your beginnings, what would your assessment be? Are you where you thought youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d be or

community-building evenings are a great night out if youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re handy on the ukulele or not.

Getting Down with Dubmarine




do things evolve with their own momentum? To be honest, we long ago passed what I thought was possible for a little old band from West End in Brisbane. I remember a younger me would have considered getting to play a packed stage at Woodford Folk Festival â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;making itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;. The truth is, however, we just love doing it and every experience we have along the way is a bonus. That said we work very hard at creating opportunities for ourselves but it all comes from the love of making this weird music. What is the secret to maintaining artistic harmony in an outfit like yours? I really think it is the whole freedom within boundaries thing, which helps with the artistic harmony. Even though it may not seem like it there are some pretty big boundaries in Dubmarine where we donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t ever go, for instance nothing too funk/soul comes out of us. So as long as we try things within the few boundaries we have set it all is fair game. But setting these few rules over the last five years avoids some possible disagreements Also everyone gets a say and is welcome to bring ideas or indeed veto ideas. Sometimes we write whole tunes in the rehearsal room (eg Point the Bone was written this way); other times someone will bring a completed track for Kazman to write lyrics on (one of our newer tunes, None the Wiser, was written this way by our drummer Joel Alexander). I also think after a track has been written you can judge if we like it of if it fits the Dubmarine vibe. Some tracks donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t ever get played more than twice as we decide we arenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t into them anymore. But we had to

finish the rack to realise that. You always look like you are having a lot of fun; are looks deceiving, or is it really like that? We are usually having lots of fun. Our vocalist Kazman and Billie really get up onstage and are just on total performance mode and loving it. Truth be told Kazman is actually like that in rehearsal too. The music is really fun to play and we get a kick out of it. Of course you give those shows that are difficult and stuff can go wrong with your equipment or whatever, but even then you just dig in and do your best. What do you look forward to once you hit the stage? I just really love performing and if it all goes smoothly enough and we are able to connect with the audience everything is great! I am particularly into performing some of our new tunes we have rolled out for this tour, and also if it is one of the nights that Kazman does front flips. What do you look forward to once you get home? Seeing family is really the big drawcard for the band when we get home. A few of the guys have some new additions to their families so are always eager to get home and be Dad. The other big thing is sleep. We all miss sleep terribly. What should we expect for the Byron show? The Byron show is set to be huge. We have been on the road now for two and a bit months so the show is as tight as ever. We have a few new tunes in the set. Similarly Kingfisha have been touring with us so that band is sounding amazing and the show will feature the triumphant return of Brisbane party starters, The Chocolate Strings. Will be a fantastic night! Hotel Great Northern on Saturday. Tix $15 at the door.

In conjunction with The Royal Opera, Palace Opera and Ballet presents Eugene Onegin on Sunday at 1pm. First performed in Moscow in 1879, with a libretto that closely follows the verse novel by Alexander Pushkin, it also features exquisite music by Tchaikovsky. It is director Kasper Holten’s first production for The Royal Opera, and he works with the Danish set designer Mia Stensgaard; it fields a brilliant cast including Simon Keenlyside in the title role. The cast also features Krassimira Stoyanova, Elena Maximova, Peter Rose, Pavol Breslik and Diana Montague.

PIGS SET TO FLY John Doyle’s comic play Pig Iron People is multi-faceted, bold, tough and affectionate. The play begins on election day in 1996. The Pig Iron People are part of the constituency that put and kept the Howard government in power. Nick, a writer, moves into a federation inner-city house that was once the home of a famous music-hall star. The inhabitants of Liberal Street are both amusing and appalling. They are as rough as guts but they bleed and suffer like the rest of us. Doyle has fun with popular television culture when an ex-soapie star becomes the love interest of Nick. And the man who created the character Roy Slaven is not averse to putting some popular songs of bygone eras into the show. The humour is broad, the language can be coarse and sometimes moving as the characters reveal their inner lives. The Drill Hall Theatre’s production is supported by pianist Coral Grogan and directed by Michael Borenstein. The play opens this Friday for nine performances, 8pm Fridays and Saturdays and 5pm Sundays until 26 May. Bookings at the Mullum Bookshop or at the door.

SO DO YOU WANT TO BE AN ACTOR? Drill Hall TC artistic director Mike Russo is calling for interested actors to be in their July production. Males and females of all ages should contact Mike if they would like to tread the Drill Hall boards. Mike has a number of plays in mind and will select one according to the cast available. You can call Mike on 6684 4886 or turn up at the Drill Hall on any Thursday night after 8pm. The Drill Hall TC would also like to speak to anyone interested in directing one of their productions.

by Ian Rogers Play at Byron Services Club, Mon 7pm Mullumbimby’s choice for 2013 Sports Star of the Year appears to have been decided after David Lovejoy’s win of the Oceania Seniors Chess Championship in Christchurch last week. He has thus qualified to represent Oceania in the World Seniors Championship in Croatia in November. Lovejoy went undefeated, but his 6/7 score was matched by New Zealand’s Arie Nijman. At 83 Nijman was the oldest player in the field, having first represented New Zealand at the 1956 Bledisloe Cup. Nijman’s fine performance in Christchurch meant that Lovejoy, 15 years his junior, needed a fifth tiebreaker before the two competitors could be separated. Lovejoy’s success followed another undefeated performance at the Doeberl Cup tournament in Canberra but he will struggle to maintain his run at the World Seniors Championship which is usually dominated by Grandmasters from Eastern Europe.

Sleepwalk With Me

a m e n w i e C evi R TUESDAY

7 MAY to


15 MAY


As writer, director and star of this off-beat, friendly comedy, it must be assumed that Mike Birbiglia has exposed a history of his own foibles, fears and neuroses. Stylistically, this is an MO that has gone through the roof as our culture has become almost paranormally egocentric, so its success depends on how truthful it comes across on delivery. I bought it, without necessarily feeling any great sympathy for the character. While driving, Matt Pandamiglio, a standup comic, tells us through flashbacks of his romance

with Abby (Lauren Ambrose), his relationship with his lush Mom and overbearing Dad (Carol Kane and James Rebhorn, performers who nail such parts with reliable economy and clarity), and his at first floundering but of late successful attempts at making a career on the club circuit telling gags, most of which are at his own expense – fun is had with Pandamiglio, as it must surely have been with Birbiglia. It’s said that all clowns, deep down, want to play Hamlet, so it’s not entirely unexpected that Matt’s

story is riven with anxiety and doubt. Mike’s negative undercurrents manifest themselves in sleepwalking, a disorder that has become so chronic that it regularly presents a threat to his safety, even leading him to jump through a closed second-storey motel window. A professional corner is turned when Mike is advised to put more of himself into his act, setting in train resolutions to the problems that have been bugging him. More consideration might have been shown to Abby – there is a terrific scene in

group of fellow oldies, while Arthur turns a cold shoulder to the world, including his son James (Christopher Eccleston). When Marion’s cancer returns, they both need to prepare themselves for the end of their long life together. Marion carries on defiantly, Arthur dourly goes further into his shell. After Marion dies, as we all knew she would, Arthur allows himself, begrudgingly, to be drawn to the company of her friends. It is against his better judgment, against his nature and he struggles with the commitment – but this is the point being made, that a leopard can change its spots. Films about choirs tend to wallow in a dolorous and icky sweetness, too selfconsciously worthy for their

own good. This is different, for it steers clear of sanctimony. Unarguably, grouchy Arthur is the protagonist. It’s his journey that the story tracks, from being shattered to mended, from being a frowning, faultfinding bastard to a man who has learnt to embrace others. Fine as Stamp is, though, it is Gemma Arterton who, with very little effort, provides the movie with its heart. As Elizabeth, the choirmistress, she is at last cast in a role in which she can be a real person, dressed down and unpainted, instead of a clichéd sex kitten. The songs – including True Colours, Let’s Talk About Sex, Love Shack – enrich and comfort through their familiarity. ~ John Campbell

which, returning home from a wedding reception, Ambrose colours the moment with heartbreaking intensity – but there is little room to spare in any first-person account of a bloke seeking what is right for him. The dream sequences could have been better executed – they feel clunky and not in-sync with the flow of the narrative – but the message, that ‘I’m okay, you’re okay’, if not exactly earth shattering, is a comfy fit for its natural audience. ~ John Campbell

Screenplays generally adhere to the golden rule that says ‘the darkest hour is just before dawn’. Triumphant endings always come after a near-insurmountable late setback. In the case of this deeply moving, inspirational and totally wonderful movie, however, the practice was superfluous. What happens when the choir of old-age pensioners (the OAPz) finally arrive at the grand concert hall, having won a spot in the final of a nationwide competition, is a needless contrivance so implausible that it very nearly mars what has gone before it. Marion (Vanessa Redgrave) and Arthur (Terrence Stamp) live in one of those dreary, nondescript areas of English suburbia. Marion sings with a

1. Jim Carrey is in fine form in The Mask (GO!, Saturday, 8.30pm) as the mild-mannered man who finds the Mask of Loki â&#x20AC;&#x201C; originally a Norse trickster god but in this case based on a comic book character â&#x20AC;&#x201C; and becomes a superconfident, super-powered extrovert. This is one film in which the excellent special effects do not overwhelm the plot. Cameron Diaz debuts as Carreyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s love interest. 2. Will Ferrell and Mark Wahlberg star as odd-couple cops in The Other Guys (GO!, Sunday, 9.30pm), an action comedy spoofing police buddy movies. Dwayne Johnson and Michael Keaton are also part of the action.

Scene Number Two. Newly arrived in the Byron shire I am doing unusual, touristy things such as deciding to have my obligatory coffeeand-muffin breakfast in a pub. But this is no ordinary pub, this cavernous hall offering up the theatre of ocean, rocky outcrop, lighthouse and sky. I carry my perfectly expressed coffee to a table where my view is a postcard.

The bistro in a back corner dispenses mostly superb coffee; under a glass dome there are jewelled pastries made locally. And wedges of cake and slices and vast sandwiches in the refrigerated cabinet along with the reassuring roar of the coffee machine. The food is defiantly pub-food: chicken Parmigiana, sausages and mash, beer-battered fish and The Beach Hotel is no ordinary pub â&#x20AC;&#x201C; â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;pubâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; chips, Caesar salad, a couple of burgers and a is too coarse and too common a word for a Steak Sanga.

No matter: all beachfront location, whose arms indeed seem day long fresh oysters are available, and Come spread out in a gesture that says all this beauty Sail Your Ship by Nick Cave might be floating is for everyone. wistfully through the speakers as you watch a But of course it is a pub and â&#x20AC;&#x201C; rarely these days police van cruise to a standstill then wait while â&#x20AC;&#x201C; I have witnessed it heaving with humanity at an officer emerges, strides purposefully across the park, swoops down and scoops up into his its least pretty. I choose, these days, and even arms a little boy. Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s just another scene from this is rare, to drop in late morning, one of the stage-set that is Byron Bayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s incomparable those sun-spangled blue-and-gold mornings when the ocean glitters, when the only other Beach Hotel.

Muoiâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Feast has created a strong following since opening in 2003. Winning numerous awards for its international cuisine, the Asian section of the menu is the predominant favourite. Enjoy for dinner.


Muoiâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Feast

people occupying the space might be two businessmen over laptops, backs turned away from the sea, or solitary youths sitting over early schooners, or two middle-aged women leaning toward each other, flashing sunglasses and cappuccinos and friand crumbs on a plate. Good-looking boys with ponytails and pumped-up arms and CREW inscribed on black T-shirts waft between the tables balancing towers of glasses in one hand. The place almost to yourself feels like a gift.

Scene Number One. I have walked all the way from Old Bangalow Road through the softest evening then climbed the flight of stairs. Entered that lofty space, still too early for crowds, still light enough to see the dark masses of trees sculpted against a darker sea. Looked around for my date, the man I have already started to love, and seen the unmistakable beanie-clad back of his head and hold that moment for as long as I am able, that moment taut with possibility and expectation and anticipation. Then I move toward him, and circle his neck with my arms.

Downhill slide continues for lacklustre Devils Story & photo John Campbell

The only good thing that can be said about Byron Bay’s drubbing at the hands of Northern United on Sunday is that we were at least able to endure it without being constantly badgered by that oily-suited son of rodent privilege pimping the odds to its outcome. That the estimated crowd of 6,227 was hugely underwhelmed by the Red Devils’ showing would be putting it mildly, for the 38–22 scoreline generously flattered the home side. Byron knocked-on in their first set of six from the kickoff, Northern crossed soon after from a charge down and, most ominously, the plaintive cry of ‘fire up, Byron!’ was already getting an airing on the western hill. The visitors’ approach was neither bruising nor complex. Rather than bashing their way through the guts, they simply shifted the pill from one side of the field to the other, at pace. As is deservedly the case, fortune favoured the brave and United’s quick, expansive passing was rarely undone by poor hands. Aiding and abetting their raids was a trainspotting, slow-moving Byron defence that, when it came to reading and stifling the attack, proved to be illiterate. After United had skipped away to 16–0 it was beginning to look like the Road Runner v Elmer Fudd. ‘They’re runnin’ ’em ragged,’ said the Old Bloke between bouts of bagging the government (when did Australia beThird quarter May 2 New moon May 10 First quarter May 18 Full moon May 25 Day of Sun Sun Moon month rise set rise 1 W 0613 1713 2233 2 T 0613 1712 2336 3 F 0614 1711 4 S 0614 1710 0036 5 S 0615 1710 0135 6 M 0616 1709 0232 7 T 0616 1708 0328 8 W 0617 1707 0424 9 T 0617 1707 0519 10 F 0618 1706 0613 11 S 0619 1705 0706 12 S 0619 1705 0757 13 M 0620 1704 0845 14 T 0620 1704 0931 15 W 0621 1703 1013 16 T 0621 1702 1053 17 F 0622 1702 1130 18 S 0623 1701 1206 19 S 0623 1701 1241 20 M 0624 1700 1317 21 T 0624 1700 1355 22 W 0625 1700 1435 23 T 0626 1659 1520 24 F 0626 1659 1610 25 S 0627 1658 1706 26 S 0627 1658 1808 27 M 0628 1658 1914 28 T 0628 1657 2020 29 W 0629 1657 2125 30 T 0629 1657 2228 31 F 0630 1657 2329

come a nation of working-class Tories?). Byron at last got on the board through a converted try to second-rower Joseph Gordon, and you could feel an immediate complacency in the crowd that said ‘the boys have finally pulled their finger out. It’s only a matter of time until they assert themselves.’ Those of us who wanted to believe that were living in a fool’s paradise. The passage of play that followed summed up the Devils’ slack afternoon. On a clearing kick, they booted the ball out on the full.

Danny DeVito), they were marched for back-chat, after which they stood and watched as United’s Willie Hammond sauntered around, counting the numbers before deciding whom he’d throw his pass to for another overlap and try in the corner. It was 32–6 at half-time, and the horse had bolted. All that was left for the Bay to strive for in the second forty was to save face. If they think that they did then self-delusion must be added to their list of woes. Noel King crossed for a couple of tries and hooker Matthew Ferns got one, but United had put the cue in the rack. Since opening the season with a stirring victory over reigning premiers Murwillumbah, the Devils have now gathered one paltry point from a possible six – and that against a twelve-man Mullumbimby outfit. Coach Nathan Cross, who guided the Bay to their 2008 grand-final victory, has some serious issues to deal with if he is to get anywhere near repeating that feat.

Most urgently, he will have to find a way to infuse some spirit into his side – it has gone missing in recent weeks.

Bangalow under par against Casino It was a below par performance from the Rebels on sponsors and supporters day eventually scrapping out a 20–13 win over an enthusiastic Casino side at Bangalow last Saturday. Tries to fullback Will Latham and winger Chris Bleakley in the first half were enough to secure the win. Hemi Mullen converted both and Will Latham kicked two penalties. Casino scored a converted try and kicked two penalties

which was a fair reward for their effort across the park. It was evident the Rebels are yet to fully gel and in weeks to come against the top teams they will need to sort out their game or risk the chance of some heavy defeats. Numerous opportunities were created but due to poor decision making any pressure built was lost. Team discipline and skills were atrocious at times keeping Casino in with a sniff.

In second grade Bangalow came up against a well drilled Kyogle side who were in control for the majority of the game winning convincingly 30–0. Another top effort from the boys playing full games and backing up for firsts. This weekend 1st and 2nds are away to Grafton which will be a big test for the club. A special thanks to all our sponsors we hope you enjoyed the day.

Cruise control for Dockers against Suns Matthew Lodge

Even without four top-flight players, Fremantle managed to simply get the job done as they ran out 45-point winners over the Gold Coast Suns at Metricon Stadium on Saturday night. It was a cruise control match for the Dockers, who kicked the first four goals of the match, strangling the life out of the young Suns who were riddled with the storybook skill errors and missed opportunities plaguing them from being more competitive in season 2013. The Suns could not figure out the jigsaw despite winning the disposal count (348–333), clearances (43–31), contested possessions (139–138) and going inside 50 an equal 45 times, with Suns’ coach Guy McKenna describing his side’s poise as ‘non-existent’. Gold Coast defenders Jarrod Harbrow (32 disposals) and David Swallow (20 disposals) were prolific off half-back, while youngster Jaegar O’Meara continued his strong development with a game-high nine tackles. For Fremantle, it wasn’t so much individual performance


but an even contribution across the Dockers’ 22 that saw them constantly keep the Suns at bay. Outside a four-goal performance from small forward Michael Walters and three goals to ruckman Jonathon Griffen, only three Dockers, in Garrick Ibbotson, David Mundy and Michael Barlow, passed 20 disposals. The battle between Gary Ablett and Ryan Crowley was perhaps the most interesting contest of the night. In a relationship of historical frostiness – Ablett called Crowley a joke over Twitter in response to the Docker’s defensive tactics – the Suns’ captain gave away three first-quarter free kicks all resulting in Fremantle goals. The Suns’ captain responded in magnificent fashion, arguably winning the contest and finishing with 28 disposals (21 of them won in contested situations) and a goal. Yet in a side missing Aaron Sandilands with a hamstring, Matthew Pavlich with an achilles, Nat Fyfe, who is suspended, and Stephen Hill, who has done

his quad, the Dockers did what they do best – harassed, tackled, competed and eventually won. Speaking post match, McKenna praised the Dockers for giving his young side a lesson in pressure. ‘Fremantle are the boa-constrictors of the AFL,’ said McKenna. ‘We spoke about pressure and we spoke about poise prior to the game and, ultimately out of that, if you do that well, you might get some respect because you might knock over a top eight side.’ McKenna said while his team could train to absorb the suffocating pressure enforced by Fremantle, the only way to truly learn was during matches. ‘It’s a different game against Fremantle and that’s what they want to try to do. That’s the ultimate challenge I think: it’s being able to play your brand of football longer than the opposition. With only a few matches they could realistically win, the Suns travel to the G next Sunday afternoon to face the Demons for an intriguing contest. Final Score: Fremantle 14. 15. (99), Gold Coast Suns 8. 6. (54).

In a mammoth double header, the Bay Rollers took on the 2012 champions Northern Rivers Roller Derby from Lismore, while the Tweed Valley Rollers did battle with their southern sisters from Coffs Coast Roller Derby. Last year’s top of the table team, the Northern Rivers Roller Derby, got a bit more than they bargained for at Ewingsdale on Saturday night, when the Byron Bay derby team gave them a roll for their money. Exploiting their ever increasing cohesiveness, The Bay Rollers dogged the Lismore team and kept nipping at the heels

of their skate the entire match. Fortune moved in the girls from the south’s favour and a couple of power jams late in the match saw the NRRD skate away with a clear victory, but it was still the most exciting Bay Rollers match to grace the boards of the Byron Bay Regional Sports and Cultural Complex thus far. I’d say the Lismore girls will have to have a serious rethink of their strategy for the next clash because if the Bay continue to improve at this exponential rate, they will be looking down at all comers in the not too distant future. The final score was NRRD 173 to TBR 121. In a double header that saw the Tweed Valley Rollers with just eight skaters take on the

In the first home game of 2013 The Moonshiners donned a new strip replicating the original 1989 Shiners jersey, and charged out in front of a crowd nudging 300 to take on the Evans Heads Killer Whales. There was a double edged minute’s silence before kick-off in tribute to a dearly missed team-mate Luke ‘Blacky’ Whipps and also for former zone president Maurie Ryan. Captain Teale Pyne set the expectation in the change room: ‘There’s too much at stake for us to not win this game’. The lads responded with an aggressive start. The brothers Pyne were early christening the new jerseys with their own claret. Every time Evans crossed the halfway line, Nathan ‘Super Boot’ Nicholls kicked them back.

The Killer Whales defended stoutly with just three points conceded until Darcy Stephens took the running option, made thirty metres, offloaded to Todd Arthur onto Wally Andrews for a 10-point lead the Shiners carried into half time. During the past seven years Moonshine wins have been as rare as rockinghorse shit, but the players stuck fat, took no backward steps and forged a powerful spirit that extends beyond the rugby field. For the most those rare wins have been slogging affairs. In the second half the lads stood up to a man and smashed the Killer Whales. Fierce tackling had the Evans injury count increasing at an alarming rate. Their backs combined cohesion and powerful running and the floodgates opened. Todd Arthur scored the first of his two tries

Coffs Coast Derby Dolls, punters were treated to a tight fight whose score seemed to get narrower and narrower the further along the game went. Both sides displayed excellent skating and in what was truly an edge of the seat finale, TVR on 223 just tipped CCDD on 205. The twin bouts were a winner on all levels. ‘Double headers are great for people to come and watch because there are four different styles of roller derby skills and strategy on display’, says Freeky Peeky, president of The Bay Rollers. ‘It doesn’t matter if you’ve never watched roller derby before because it’s such an entertaining sport and it doesn’t take long to work out.’ Roller derby is the fastest growing women’s sport in Full back Keelan Jenkins in scintillating form on return swings it wide.

Teale Pyne nailed the last of the day and players’ player Lucas ‘Smokin’ Joe’ Frazier in his farewell game slotted the kick. A chorus of You are my Moonshine rang out from the crowd as the ref said ‘yibbida yibbida, that’s all folks’. Brad Walsh was excellent and Duncan Kendall added inspiration with his return to the side.

Fast-tracking development ‘a big threat’ Pin This Up The state government’s plan to reduce local resident input into development approval decisions poses significant threats to the state’s natural and cultural heritage, the Nature Conservation Council of NSW (NCC) has warned. NCC chief executive officer Pepe Clarke said that under the O’Farrell government’s proposed new planning system, assessment authorities would only be aware that a heritage item was threatened by a devel-


opment if the site was listed in a state or national heritage register or local environment plan. ‘The problem with this approach is that historically important buildings and culturally significant sites are often not listed,’ Mr Clarke said. ‘The true value of sites sometimes becomes clear only after the local community has been consulted. ‘If the O’Farrell government succeeds in limiting community input to just 20 per cent


of developments it would be disastrous for the state’s rich natural and cultural heritage. ‘These plans to fast-track development will reduce opportunities for expert heritage assessment and input from the community, including Aboriginal knowledge holders.’ Mr Clarke said it was a positive step to involve local communities at the strategic planning phase but that was no substitute for site-specific identification and protection.

Comprehensively covering the NSW Far North Coast

REINSW urges NSW govt to reinstate first home buyer incentives occupied housing finance commitments fell to 14.4 per cent in February 2013 from 15.0 per cent in January 2013.

The Real Estate Institute of New South Wales is calling on the NSW treasurer to reinstate first home buyers incentives for purchasers of existing properties in the 2013 Budget, due to be released on June 18. ‘We are calling on the treasurer to not only reinstate first home buyer incentives that were removed in 2012, but to also explore additional opportunities to assist first home buyers to take their first step onto the property ladder,’ REINSW president Christian Payne said. ‘It is not too late for the NSW government to reverse its decision to abolish from 1 January 2012 the stamp duty exemption/concession and from 1 October 2012 the $7000 grant for those buying existing properties. ‘The new grant of $15,000 (which will drop to $10,000 from 1 January 2014) for first home buyers who purchase or build a new home for not more than $650,000 that was introduced on 1 October 2012, has clearly failed. First home buyers are sitting on their hands. ‘This can be seen in data released from the Australian Bureau of Statistics (16 April 2013), which shows the number of first home buyer commitments as a percentage of total owner

‘We also run the real risk of losing the brightest minds who, if not treated with the respect they deserve, will take their skills and savings to other more affordable states. We cannot let this happen. ‘The NSW treasurer must act now to restore balance to the property market and we will continue to lobby the government until the situation is rectified,’ Mr Payne said.

Building approvals fall in March The number of residential building approvals fell by 5.5 per cent during March, according to the Housing Industry Association. This is the largest monthly decline in building approvals

since July of last year and represents a disappointing reversal of the growth which occurred in February,’ said HIA senior economist Shane Garrett.

was particularly pronounced in March with a fall of 7.7 per cent. This is in comparison to the 4.1 per cent decline in detached house approvals during March. ‘The decline in approvals for units ‘When we take a longer view on today’s data, the picture is a little more Monthly Building Approvals - Australia encouraging.

‘In removing the incentives on existing properties, the NSW government has forgotten the important place first home buyers hold in the property ladder and the huge benefits of their activities across the state.


Property In Focus p59

‘The government has failed NSW first home buyers, as well as those who are ready to move to the next step on the property ladder.



‘In fact, they have fallen from 19.4 per cent in September 2012 and the all-time high of 29.5 per cent in May 2009. At this rate, we are heading towards lows of 12.5 per cent seen in March 2004.

‘The housing industry is in a sensitive state and the need for supportive action from government at this time is great. There remains huge scope for policy intervention, especially with regard to inefficient taxes on housing. We urge the government not to ignore these opportunities.’ In March 2013, total seasonally adjusted building approvals increased in Queensland (+13.3 per cent) and in Western Australia (+0.6 per cent) during March. Decreases in building approvals took place in South Australia (-23.5 per cent), New South Wales (-10.9 per cent), Victoria (-9.1 per cent) and Tasmania (-0.3 per cent). In trend terms building approvals in the Northern Territory rose by 11.9 per cent but fell by 1.2 per cent in the ACT during March 2013 compared with the previous month.

Backlash â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;And thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s how The Echo started â&#x20AC;&#x201C; just two crazy guys.â&#x20AC;&#x2122; If anyone hasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t yet seen the excellent feature documentary on how this rag came into existence, they can catch it on the big screen in Lismore this weekend.

An Echo drudge was on a Jetstar flight from Auckland to Christchurch last week and observed a young man across the aisle try to use his phone in a similar way. When the plane arrived at the gate everyone was instructed to stay seated while two of Christchurchâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s finest boarded and arrested the phone user. Our drudge would like to know if the difference in retribution is down to the airline, the country or the rank of the offender? QQQQ
