Residents feel ‘abandoned’ by Council

Groups fear bund change will increase ooding Community groups in the north of the Shire fear that Byron Shire Council’s proposed changes to the Kallaroo Circuit Bund at North Ocean Shores will increase ooding in the area. A staff report coming to a Council meeting this Thursday recommends adopting a draft LEP which will allow a development application ‘to increase the hydraulic capacity of the Capricornia Canal culvert located within the Kallaroo Circuit road reserve at Ocean Shores’.

The move follows on threats of legal action from Tweed Shire and a longstanding legal agreement with Tweed cane farmers. The then local government minister Tony Kelly called on Byron and Tweed to resolve the matter and the LEP proposal is a result of subsequent talks. According to a press release from the South Golden Beach Progress Association, New Brighton Village Association, Conservation of North Ocean

Hans Lovejoy After 30 days averaging ďŹ ve kms an hour, two young Sydney lads finally landed in Byron on Tuesday last week, just in time for the Blues Festival. Dale Butler and Nick Young, both 23, kayaked from Palm Beach, Sydney, to

Byron Bay to raise money for the Make-A-Wish Foundation, and throughout their journey they encountered large sharks, dolphins, turtles and huge swells. ‘We’ve been thrown by freak waves,’ says Dale Butler. ‘A couple of hammer-

head sharks nearly hit us, and we saw sharks ranging up to three metres.’ With no land-based backup, the kayakers were weighed down with over 70kg which included tents, ďŹ shing gear and surfboards. continued on page 2

Byron Shire Council has won the NRAC Local Government Landcare Community Partnership Award at the inaugural Northern Rivers Catchment Management Authority Regional Landcare Awards held in Grafton on Thursday March 29. Landcare established this award to recognise outstanding achievement by a local government organisation in collaborating with its community to preserve and manage its local environment and natural resources, encouraging a Landcare ethic and action in the local community, and cooperating on Landcare issues and projects

with neighbouring organizations, businesses, other councils and landowners. Byron Shire Council took out the award ahead of seven other local government organisations. ‘This award is recognition of Byron Shire Council’s leadership role in the region as a local authority which incorporates Landcare principles into planning, works and programs and promotes and supports a Landcare ethic in the community,’ said Mayor Jan Barham. Byron Shire Council was nominated for the award by local Landcarers who have worked with Council as part-

ners in restoration projects. The nominations cited a number of initiatives by Council as worthy of recognition including the Biodiversity Conservation Strategy, the Sustainable Agriculture Strategy and the West Byron Integrated Water Management Reserve. Also highly commended at the presentation dinner was Byron Shire resident and member of Wilsons Creek Huonbrook Landcare, Sue Riley. Ms Riley was recognised for her outstanding work in the Landcare movement by achieving runner up for the NRCMA Individual Landcarer Award.

Writersfest supports portrait prize The Byron Bay Writers Festival celebrates its support of FEHVA with a novel (pardon the pun) twist this year. ‘Rather than sponsor a guest speaker as we have in the past we have conjured up an interactive link between the literary and visual arts community,’ said Jeni CafďŹ n, Director of the Byron Bay Writers Festival. ‘A portrait of one of our local “men or women of lettersâ€? sprang to mind to inaugurate a literary wall of fame. ‘Dee [Tipping, FEHVA corodinator] and I put our heads together and came up with the FEHVA portrait prize where the Byron Bay Writers Festival would acquire a portrait of one of our loved local literary ďŹ gures through an acquisitive prize. Mungo MacCallum is one of the shire’s great personalities and literary ďŹ gures and he enthusiastically accepted the offer to sit and be immortalised.

‘The Byron Bay Writers Festival will apply $1,000 sponsorship to an acquisition prize. In a similar scenario to Rolf Harris’s ABC series of portrait paintings

of celebrities, Mungo will choose the winning portrait of himself and award the prize at The FEHVA art auction on Thursday June 28’.

paddler would scoop up a bluebottle and it would slide down and sting that paddler while also potentially stinging the paddler behind.’ The pair also encountered generous hospitality. ‘We broke a pin on a rudder ten kilometres south of Coffs Harbour and had to paddle in a three metre swell,’ Dale said. ‘When we arrived into the Coffs Yacht Club, the club’s commodore gave us hot showers and donated the meat raffle’s cash to our charity.’ He also let them sleep on his yacht, and ďŹ xed the rudder the next day, according to Dale. ‘We had a lot of support all the way up, from

Swansea, Belmount, Red Head (near Newcastle) Black Head, Crowdy Head, Coffs Harbour, Woolgoolga and Woody Head.’ So what made both young men want to paddle for charity? ‘None of us was associated with charities before,’ says Dale. ‘We researched a few charities, and thought of the kids. What we did was an adventure, and we thought it suited the Make A Wish Foundation as many kids wish for adventure.’ Donations can still be made by ringing 1800 032 260 and quote ‘Head to Head East Coast Tour’ to make a credit card donation.

Local comic makes it to Raw ďŹ nals Story & photo Lou Beaumont Mullum mum Ellen Briggs was the winner of the Queensland Raw Comedy ďŹ nal the other weekend. After a ďŹ ve minute bash at comedy during an ACE course with Mandy Nolan, Ellen got the bug. From there she was given further opportunities to express herself comedically and the rest is history. She is now one of several ďŹ nalists in the Raw Comedy National Championships to be held in Melbourne in two weeks’ time. According to Ellen, the comedy path ‘sort of took on a life of its own’. It is not a career she is actively seeking to promote, and insists that if it wasn’t such good fun she wouldn’t bother, but, unbeknown to Ellen, her six years as a stay at home mum to her twin 6 year old boys, became a well of material for her to dip into every time she hits the stage. Ellen elaborates, ‘Being a mum to my kids is deďŹ nitely my main source of inspiration and material. I’ve had people say that I openly express what all mothers think but don’t say out loud. ‘People seem to laugh [and wince] in a way that illustrates that they think they probably shouldn’t laugh at that kind of material, as it may not be politically correct, but they can’t seem to help it! ‘Sometimes I think we take ourselves too seriously, especially when it comes to parenting, and it wouldn’t hurt to lighten up and have a bit more fun. In any case, in the comedy arena, things can be said relatively inoffensively. That’s what comedy is to me – having an idea and pushing the

boundaries with it.’ Indeed, Ellen does push the comfort boundaries with some of her material but her delivery is key. A fresh faced, fairly conservatively dressed woman who confesses she looks as though she should be at home playing with her kids Play-doh, Ellen delivers the darker side of parenting with buckets of irony and humour. It is this contrast, she believes, that makes it work. ‘That’s the stuff that works... the stuff that’s really real. All parents know about the tough stuff but don’t seem to talk about it openly.’ Ironically, her stage persona of tough loving mother disappears as soon as she steps back behind the curtain. ‘I automatically click back into being a mum to Eden and Jared. As soon as I found out I had to go to Melbourne for a weekend of course my immediate thoughts were who was going to look after

the kids.’ Her kids appear to thrive under their jocular mum and dad. Constantly quipping between each other, the children already have a well established sense of humour. Ellen thinks her kids are a ‘gift from the Comedy Gods’. Indeed, the boys are attending scripture class at the moment and when one of them has trouble with the order of things... ‘Jesus died on Friday and on Sunday he went to prison’, the other twin can quickly correct him, ‘no, no, he died on Friday

Local News Green and Clean celebrates 10 years

Hens-on approach to poultry auction On Sunday April 29 at the Bangalow Showground Poultry Pavilion, the Bangalow A&I Society (Inc) Poultry Club, will be holding The Northern Rivers Pure Breed Poultry Auction. Vendors must have birds penned between 6.30am and 8.30am on Sunday 29, and viewing of birds and inspection for bidders from 8.30am until the auction starts at 10.00am sharp.

It is expected about 400-500 fowl, pheasant, waterfowl and partridge birds will be penned, so everyone must come early to allow yourself time for inspection of birds, and every bidder must have a registered number prior to the commencement of the auction. A catalogue and auction

on the Marshalls Creek Floodplain Committee, Matthew Lambourne, said, ‘It appears that Council does not want to acknowledge that this committee is totally opposed to increasing flood levels and the duration of flooding. After many years of trying to get Council to follow the proper procedure in solving this issue we have now lost confidence in the Council. ‘At our next committee meeting this week we will be formally stating that we have no confidence in Council’s ability to manage our floodplain. We have long held the view that Council should be following the guidelines in the state government’s Floodplain Manual. That involves preparing a new Floodplain Plan instead of imposing an ad hoc development like this on the floodplain. Council acknowledges that their proposal is contrary to the existing Floodplain Plan, but they do not see this as a problem.’ CONOS said it was ‘extremely upset with the staff report that chose to ignore the recommendation from the National Parks & Wildlife Service that Council should change the wording of their Draft LEP to allow

changes to the Bund if there were found to be detrimental impacts on the adjacent Billinudgel Nature Reserve. ‘The National Parks people want to ensure that if something goes wrong and the values of the Nature Reserve are threatened by the project then the amount of water flowing through the Bund can be reduced to protect the Park’s hydrology,’ saidVal Scanlon for CONOS. ‘Not only would this be a precautionary measure for Council to adopt because of global warning, but it would also be prudent for Council to adopt this measure in order to protect affected residents in the floodplain should the estimated increase in floodwaters prove to be incorrect. ‘Council staff have rejected the NPWS recommendations because apparently they are not prepared to change the document that went on public exhibition. We trust that Councillors will consider the NPWS recommendation carefully and will see merit in protecting the valuable wetland resources within the Reserve system. After all it is imperative, and in Council’s interest, to get this right.’

Solveig takes art to the café Story & photo Lou Beaumont Café Mazah in Mullumbimby has been transformed, for the indefinite future, into a gallery showcasing artist Solveig McDonald. Solveig, (pron. sil-way), naturally thrilled to have her community’s support by way of wall space, will be updating the works on display every month. A former psychologist by trade, and a mother of three, Solveig returned to painting fulltime five years ago. She trained at the National Art School in Sydney and she loves the fact she is now doing what she loves without major distractions and life dynamics to stop her. She is also happy to do away with the ‘snobby, egotistical gallery world art is so often caught up in’. A self-titled graphic impressionist, Solveig employs opposing colours adjacent to each other to create vibrant scenes and abstract depictions that appear to vibrate and jump off the canvas. Solveig explains, ‘I can see auras of energy around things, so I use the contrasting edge effect to energise the image. I want your eye to be forced to jump all over the painting, rather than rest in one spot. If I paint a current

water at once.’ Shape and colour are Solveig’s tools of the trade, using no form, line or tone. She believes this creative formula will keep her interested in painting for the rest of her life. Her material of choice is acrylic on board, however the works on display are giclee canvas prints. Solveig’s works can be seen at Café Mazah (opposite the old Popular) in Burringbar Street any time between 8am to 5pm Monday-Friday and 8am to 3pm Saturday, or you can log onto www.solveig. com.au.

especially since the same scene can change countless times with the light. ‘I’m going through a bit of a water phase at the moment. I don’t just paint the surface of the water, but also try to represent the “inside” of the water, all the depths of the

Street art goes off the street A new experimental artspace, Starvinâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;marvin, in Mullumbimby is providing a platform for urban street art and is local artist Kel Thompsonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;homeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; for two weeks. Kel has shut herself in the gallery to explore a new process of working â&#x20AC;&#x201C; bringing street art, usually anonymously appearing as grafďŹ ti style or stencil art â&#x20AC;&#x201C; to a conďŹ ned space. This Friday evening, April 13, Kel will be released from confinement at the public opening of the space, and with it her work will be immediately exhibited. Kel said, â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;This is a great opportunity to think with my hands in the moment. There is no contemplation and no control and the entire process will be documented in the space... I am a living experiment.â&#x20AC;&#x2122; Kel said urban art, which usually appears in public spaces and where the artist is mostly invisible to the process, stimulates varying Kel Thompson at work in Starvinâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;marvin.

DNA sought in rape case Magistrate Jeff Linden has allowed DNA tests to be taken of two of the youths charged with rape of a teenage girl in Byron Bay in March. In Byron Bay last week Mr Linden granted the request of the Lismore Director of Public Prosecutions. Police have alleged that ďŹ ve youths aged 18 or under sexually assaulted the 13year-old girl on March 11. The names of the youths have been suppressed because of their age. All five boys involved must not have contact or association with any their co-accused or with the alleged victim. There will be a further hearing at Lismore Local Court on May 22.

Khandro Thrinlay Chodon ment to deďŹ ne how this alters street art and its purpose. â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Does this scenario change the value or meaning of the art and does it create a platform for a greater understanding of this expression of sub-culture?â&#x20AC;&#x2122; Kel Thompson, who lives in Suffolk Park and recently spent ďŹ ve months in Berlin on an arts sabbatical, said that she would be losing herself to ďŹ nd herself during this process, investigating the concept of freedom and living and embodying art in a ďŹ xed environment. Starvinâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;marvin, at the back of The Old Bakery in Burringbar Street, explores the art that appears on the street from a galleryâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s perspective and is running a series of experimental exhibitions this year to provide people with a greater understanding of street art. Kel can be seen working on this project through the gallery window until 6.30pm on Friday April 13 when her work will be open to the public.

Howardâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s water boy works his magic Vol 21 #43

April 10, 2007

Coastal migration pressure Coastal councils around Australia are struggling to keep pace with a population migration of historic proportions, according to the National Seachange Taskforce. The taskforce was established in 2004 as a national body to represent the interests of coastal councils and communities experiencing the effects of rapid population and tourism growth. It currently has more than 60 member councils in all Australian states. Cr Joe Natoli, chair of the taskforce, said the latest data released by the Australian Bureau of Statistics showed that in the ten years since 1996 the population of non-metropolitan coastal areas had increased by a million people â&#x20AC;&#x201C; from 4.9m to 5.9m. â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;This is a massive movement of population on a national scale but it has not been matched by the necessary allocation of resources,â&#x20AC;&#x2122; Cr Natoli said. â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Over the past ten years the percentage of taxation revenue provided to councils has declined signiďŹ cantly. The range of essential services local government is called on to deliver has increased enormously. â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Growth areas have been denied the resources they need to match the huge increase in demand for infrastructure and services. The last ten years have been lean ones for local government and for coastal councils in particular.â&#x20AC;&#x2122; Cr Natoli said the local government sector desperately needs a new funding formula. â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Commonwealth and state governments have growth taxes such as PAYG and the GST, but the local government sector has no similar revenue source, is seriously under-funded and is falling further behind,â&#x20AC;&#x2122; he said. â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;While growth is driving a big increase in state and commonwealth tax revenues it is having the opposite effect on local councils and is placing them under enormous strain.â&#x20AC;&#x2122; Cr Natoli said coastal Australia continues to grow at a faster rate than the rest of the nation. â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Since 2001 the cumulative rate of growth for coastal LGAs outside the metropolitan areas has been 9.8%,â&#x20AC;&#x2122; he said. â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;This compares with a national growth rate of 6.1% for Australia during the same period, illustrating only too clearly the extraordinary pressures that coastal councils and their communities are attempting to deal with. â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;It is estimated another million people plan to start moving to the coast at the end of this decade as the baby-boomer generation reaches retirement age.â&#x20AC;&#x2122; Cr Natoli said the National Seachange Taskforce is developing a policy framework for coastal Australia to address the many challenges faced by coastal communities. â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;The major political parties will ignore this issue at their peril. This will be a priority election issue for people living in coastal Australia, which includes some of the most volatile electorates in the nation.â&#x20AC;&#x2122;

Y

ouâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve got to hand it to Malcolm Turnbull, the governmentâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s ambitious young water boy. He can really keep his cool. Last week the latest United Nations Intergovernmental Committee on climate change spelled out its apocalyptic forecast for Australia in the coming century: drought and ďŹ&#x201A;ood, bushďŹ res and cyclones, the Murray-Darling to dry up, the Great Barrier Reef to die, the coastline to disappear. But Turnbull isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t fazed. Thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s nothing new in all this, he says soothingly. Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve known all about it for years. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s just what weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve been planning for. The insouciance was too much even for the morning TV presenters, not known for their sensitivity. â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;So whatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s his plan,â&#x20AC;&#x2122; one of them asked cynically. â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Magic?â&#x20AC;&#x2122; It will need to be, given the pitiful nature what has been announced so far. An unplanned $10 billion to ďŹ ddle with Murray-Darling water that should never have been allocated in the first place; $200 million to slow deforestation somewhere else; a chat with the Chinese about cleaning up coal by some unspeciďŹ ed means at some unspecified time; an invitation to business to work out how much, if anything, it thinks it should pay as carbon tax; and some vague nuclear aspirations for the distant future. Oh, and maybe some ethanol in the petrol for the National Party, along with a couple of other pittances aimed at sustainable energy sources. But thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s about it. This mish-mash of tokenism and handouts is what Turnbull claims unblushingly as proof that â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;there is no government in the world which has done more about the

consequences or the anticipated consequences of climate change than the Australian governmentâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;. And note that even now he is hedging his bets: he cannot quite bring himself to admit that the consequences are real, rather than just â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;anticipatedâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;. Kevin Rudd is justiďŹ ed in exposing Turnbull and Howard, in particular, as unreconstructed climate change sceptics who insist on treating the crisis as a purely political one which will go away if sufficient spin is applied. In the circumstances it is

There will be much more emphasis on market forces, about dealing with energy production as it is rather than as others might wish it to be. by Mungo MacCallum hardly surprising that Ken Henry, the formidable head of Treasury, has signalled his determination to take control of the issue. His speech leaked to the Financial Review last week was more than just a sigh of complaint about being ignored while important economic decisions are made on the run: it was a clear warning to the government that the adhockery had to stop, and that Treasury demanded its place at the table when major policy was being drafted. And if it did not get itâ&#x20AC;Ś? Well, John Howard is old enough to remember 1974, when the Whitlam government left Treasury out of the loop while planning to borrow $4 billion in petro-dollars to build a national pipeline grid. When the then Treasury head Sir Frederick Wheeler failed to persuade

lamâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s subsequent dismissal. The circumstances are slightly different â&#x20AC;&#x201C; for instance, Howardâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s $10 billion is less than half of Whitlamâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s $4 billion in todayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s money â&#x20AC;&#x201C; but the parallels are still clear enough to worry Howard, if not his coolerthan-cool water boy, who sneered dismissively that Treasury would not even know the cost of replacing a Detheridge wheel with a computerised ďŹ&#x201A;ume gate. It may not, but, like Turnbull, it can learn; and it does know a thing or two about making life very uncomfortable for bumptious young ministers. Expect water policy to become a lot more rigorous in future. This will not be all good news for the Green lobby; there will be much more emphasis on market forces, about dealing with energy production as it is

rather than as others might wish it to be. Coal and oil will be taxed, but will remain central to the debate. Other sources â&#x20AC;&#x201C; wind, water and solar, and also bio-fuels and nuclear â&#x20AC;&#x201C; will be left to fend for themselves. As, perhaps, will the water boy.

ur Dear Leaderâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s demand that the business community run an advertising campaign in praise of WorkChoices shows either hubris or stupidity or both, not a good sign for his followers in election year. Our business leaders have repeatedly told him that the business of business is business, not social welfare, charity, or politics. It will render unto Caesar what it is compelled to but no more, and itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s certainly not going to leave itself open to a terrible revenge from an incoming government. If John Howard wants to counter the ACTUâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s anticipated $20 million campaign he will have to stump up the cash itself, either from Liberal party funds (to which business contributes lavishly, but largely anonymously, in any case) or by once more stealing from Treasury to run a spurious â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;public informationâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; campaign. This, of course, has already been done: the original ďŹ&#x201A;ogging of WorkChoices cost us hapless taxpayers around $40 million â&#x20AC;&#x201C; double the ACTU budget â&#x20AC;&#x201C; and on top of that there was a secret $2 million survey to see if it worked; judging from the current polls and Howardâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s pleas for help, it obviously didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t. Howard now says it would be â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;inappropriateâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; to do it again; but if things get any more desperate, Ken Henry will want to keep a very close eye on the keys to the vault.

Good news for maca growers Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not all bad news for macadamia growers. Growers of organic macadamias are doing OK. Organic macadamia and coffee grower Cath Ford showed us around her farm at Rosebank recently. She showed how she saved $1,000 a hectare on pesticides through organic management techniques. Her return on investment is as high if not higher than most other farmers using pesticides. Also it is safer for her, her staff, her neighbours and her customers. We heard from an organic

adviser that glyphosate used for clearing weeds under the trees can penetrate as far as the nuts, further adding to health risks. Cathâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s answer to herbicide use is simple. The mower has been adapted to keep the weeds under the trees down. She has also found that the owls are more effective in keeping rats down than dangerous poisons which put wildlife at risk. I wonder how many owls are killed by rat poison? Now that even Walmart in the USA is going organic, as

are other European supermarkets and the organic market is growing very fast worldwide, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s time for our local macadamia farmers to gain a marketing edge by following the lead of Cath Ford and others. There will always be a better market for organic nuts. Your neighbours will thank you, too, as they avoid having Endosulfan and other cancer-causing poisons drifting into their rainwater tanks. Please give it serious consideration for all our sakes.

Scott Taylor (Letters, April 3) asserts that a gruesome video â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;supposedly documenting the slaughter of dolphins paid for by the dolphin swim industryâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; is a shock tactic â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;designed to inspire protest over the dolphin drivesâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;. I was in Futo some years ago to investigate the dolphin drives and I can assure Scott Taylor and anyone else who might be confused that the primary reason for the drives is demand from the aquarium industry. Hardy Jones, a former CBS journalist and documentary ďŹ lm maker, has led the ďŹ ght to stop these obscene

and wicked drives for more than 20 years. He has irrefutable evidence, given by the Japanese fishermen themselves, that the aquarium industryâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s insatiable demand for dolphins is the major reason for the atrocities. In the Solomons several years ago, I secretly taped an interview with a veterinarian who regularly spent time in Japan at Taiji, identifying which dolphins would be â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;savedâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; after the drives for the dolphin industry.

Hands up Enclosing a copy of an article from Sunday April 1 Sunday Telegraph (hope itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not an April foolâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s joke!), quoting homeowners wanting to unload their properties, bypassing real estate agents, has jumped from 1% to 3% in the past year. This is allowing for the fact that Sydney agents are charging around 2% to 2.5% commission on sales. I do wonder how many of our local agents would be prepared to lower their reported rates from around 4% to 4.5% and match them? Interesting question. Ladies and gentlemen, please put your hands up.

phin packaging infrastructure has developed at Taiji which contributes to the continuation of the slaughter. An explosion in demand for dolphins for swim-with programs and for dolphinaria around the world is creating massive cruelty for dolphins in Japan and in the Solomons. Asian nations are lining up to exploit dolphins. More than 400,000 dolphins and porpoises have been slaughtered by the Japanese in the last 20 years. The bays in Japan where the killing takes place run red with blood. Dolphins are subjected to the most horriďŹ c cruelty, sometimes dragged

out of the water alive and taken on the backs of trucks to slaughter houses where they are hacked to death. Dolphin mothers try desperately to save their young. Dolphins cry in terror. Dolphins who are not caught in the huge nets often drown or die from the trauma of what is happening to their pod. Dolphins belong in the oceans. These beautiful creatures were not created for human amusement; to be exploited for human greed or to act as some kind of therapist for human sickness. The activists who have fought this horror for years and years are brave people. It continued overleaf

Logging woes I watched Parliament on Sunday night and the nauseating hypocrisy has prompted me to write this truth and ask how many people have been robbed of their chance in life because they were arrested in Australia trying to stop the logging of old growth forests. Please explain, Mr Malcolm Turnbull. How did a country one quarter covered by forest and temperate woodlands become the driest continent in the world? With reduced cover of 5% and the Howard government is protecting only 68% of the remaining 5%. What kind of policy allows clearing over 600,000 hectares of native bushland annually? Which federal government allowed Australiaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s old growth forests to be logged

and churned into woodchips, at a rate of ten average house blocks every minute, of every hour, every day, of every week, for the last ten years? How many CO2 emissions is that the equivalent of? The only figure not smoothly quoted and conspicuous by

its absence. Tell us how many trees, how many CO2 emissions, how much environmental degradation has the Howard government inďŹ&#x201A;icted upon us all. Even though it was clear by 1985 employment in Australian forestry had fallen by

around 40% and that a heavily mechanised industry dr iven woodchipping increased logging by 40%, and 90% of old growth forest logged woodchipped in Tasmania is for export markets and processed to make single use products like hamburger

Bring hearts and minds for the beneďŹ t of youth My heart and spirit go out to Gina Lakosta (Letters, April 3) in her dreaming for youth. She articulated beautifully what this community needs to hear. Young people need the full support of their friends, family, teachers and community leaders. More than ever before young people need our support to make it safely through their critical teenage years to the relative safety of a balanced adult life. We do live in troubled times but then again we always have. As a quote attributed to Socrates so clearly illustrates : â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;The children now love luxury; they have bad manners, contempt for authority; they show dis-

respect for elders.... They contradict their parents, chatter before company, gobble up dainties at the table, cross their legs, and tyrannise their teachers.â&#x20AC;&#x2122; So, what has changed? you may well ask. The world for one. We now live in a global village that knows no boundaries. This applies to economics and communications as much as it does to sexuality and relationships. The ground has shifted.The times have changed. And many of todayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s young people have found themselves with no direction home. Sound familiar? It should. The sixties revolution had the Cold War as its incubator. The noughties have had the War on Ter-

ror as its greenhouse. If we think global dynamics are not impacting on young people we have our head ďŹ rmly buried in the sand. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s time we did something about whatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s going on. A recent survey of the pages of this newspaper reďŹ&#x201A;ect the concerns of the community: fights, arrests, car crashes, alcohol abuse, sexual abuse, police abuse, the YAC closed down for entertainment. What more are we waiting for? There is no knight in shining armour riding down Shirley Street to rescue the young people (for a start he couldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t get through the trafďŹ c jam!). There is no glorious queen who will wave her magic wand and the peo-

ple will live happily ever after. We have to do it ourselves. As we always have. Gina Lakosta in her letter dreamt of a community of people coming together to address youth issues in this area. I would like to invite Gina, young people and any others who are interested and motivated to do just that. â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Visualise,Vocalise the Future of theYACâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; will take place on Thursday April 19 from 3pm to 6pm at the Byron Youth Activities Centre (1 Gilmore Crescent). All young people and those wanting to actively support them are invited to this community forum. The intention of this forum will be to focus the creative minds and spirits of this region

towards the support and actions needed (and wanted) by our young people at this time. The afternoon will not be a talk fest. It will include: ďŹ lm, food, music, displays and the opportunity to interact, identify and organise. All welcome. This gathering is being held intentionally during NationalYouth Week to highlight the needs of young people in this community. It is being sponsored by Byron Youth Service and planned in conjunction with Belle Arnold, YAC Coordinator. All inquires to 6685 7777 or info@bys.org.au

wrappers, or from the mainland for toilet paper, what more contempt for nature is there? Even the dullest of brains can see that the length of time it takes a forest to grow, it wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t intended for the use of one generation. Why pay $200 million to compensate corrupt governments for illegal logging? Talk about a Johnny-come-lately climate change policy. Enough is Enough, we want to hear how much the federal government is going to pay the Australian loggers for jobs that preserve our remaining old growth forests. Charity starts at home.

Good Friday

Why was it called Good Friday? For starters, Friday is the only day of the week named for a Goddess, a Norse Goddess, Freya. Before the Pagans were converted to Christianity their culture was matrilineal, the women carried the bloodlines, owned their tribal terPaul Spooner ritories and generally ruled BYS Director the roost.

Letters try or region with a name ending in the feminine ‘a’ or ‘ia’ will have been named after a Pagan Goddess or progenetrix. Christianity, being a blokey religion, had to get rid of that idea and anything connected with the feminine had to have all bad vibes, eg the superstition long held by sailors about the dangers of putting to sea on a Friday. But then the crucifixion was on a Friday. What to do? No problem, the Christian spin doctors made it a ‘good’ Friday. Then there was the number 13. This number had very powerful female connotations. The Pagan calendar went by moon cycles: 13 noon cycles plus one day = 365 days, one year. Not only that but women were connected strongly to the moon, having 13 menstrual cycles in a year. So the number 13, held

somewhat sacred by the Celtic Pagans, had to be feared by the converted. So when a Friday falls on the 13th day of the month, horror of horrors, this is a double whammy. Pagans held it to be a cause for happy celebration, but it was to be observed with fear and trepidation by the Christians. (You’ll never get to heaven if you mingle with those nasty Pagans y’know.)

Nerve struck Was it James RobinsonGale’s questionable community representation in the Cape Byron Marine Park Consultation process, or his love for the poor management of Byron Shire, that struck a nerve (Letters, April 3) or was it the lack of ‘educational programs’ and ‘proper beach signage’ for our travellers, backpackers

and visitors, in regard to surviving in our oceans? However it was good to see James vented his spleen and actually dug up some surf safety pamphlets, handouts and other various advertising material that he has at his backpackers accommodation, but they are not what I mean about ‘education programs’. You don’t read pamphlets to get your bronze, do you? What I was talking about were real hands-on courses for these travellers. So when James wants to learn about the real ‘education programs’ of sea survival I can explain to him what they are; not that spending most of my life working and surfing in the ocean would probably qualify me in his glazed-over perception of sea survival education!

More hypocrisy Have you seen the latest antismoking ad on TV (not that I take too much notice of ads) put out by the federal government, where a young woman is sucking on (what appears to be) a glass tube with smoke and tar bubbling away, yeah, very impressive? Then it shows a mouth that’s gone cancerous from, yep, smoking tobacco, even more impressive? I suppose the latest hike in price for this addiction will help the do-gooders in the government’s health department to feel good about continued overleaf

It ainâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t democracy Now that the curtain has fallen on the state election, it is ever more obvious that whatever it is, it ainâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t democracy. The political process in this country is more like a farce in two acts. The mediagenerated title for this endlessly repeated dramatic production is â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;The Government or The Opposition: which side will win?â&#x20AC;&#x2122; Which of the two Titans will win? The idea that independents, Greens or Democrats might hold a balance of power is sometimes aired, but in the mainstream media this is still subject to the same nauseating axiom: â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a two party systemâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;.

are happy to take this for granted, just as they take the legitimacy of political parties for granted. Surely, as we meander together down an increasingly slippery pathway to many possible disasters, â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s timeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;, as that old aristocrat of the labouring classes, Gough Whitlam, once put it. Actually itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s time to realise that the political system in Australia has been shanghaied by two gangs of political thugs â&#x20AC;&#x201C; and has been for a long time. This system is a duopoly where difference and choice are increasingly difďŹ cult to realise. Government is increasingly a process of pandering to corporate interests and the business of making sure that the two gangs keep control. The mechanisms of control are highly effective, but clearly undemocratic. For example: â&#x20AC;˘ Candidates are elected by the people to represent the people in their electorates, but our representatives generally take orders from nonelected caucuses and management groups, without reporting back to their electorates, or to parliament. â&#x20AC;˘ Parliament is a place of endorsement of the already decided and not a place of genuine debate. Elected representatives rarely cross the ďŹ&#x201A;oor, lest they be expelled from the Party, not endorsed

for preselection the next time, or pilloried in some other way. â&#x20AC;˘ Parties are able to accept large amounts of money from interested entities to help in their reelection, and individual politicians are easily able to engage in favouritism and self enrichment as a condition of their advocacy â&#x20AC;&#x201C; for individuals, businesses and other organisations seeking special treatment. This is all a perversion of the idea of democracy and certainly not consistent with the spirit of the Westminster system of democracy, which is what they say we have. And none of this, particularly an entrenched two party system enshrining rule by political parties, is consistent with the spirit of the Australian Constitution. Perhaps rule by political parties should be declared illegal by the courts, as this process usurps the power of the electorate. One would think that the application of coercion or inducements to an elected representative, even in the form of opportunities for promotion within a party, or threats of discipline by a party, corrupts the democratic process. The quickest and best antidote to this set-up is to vote for independent candidates and â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;non party partiesâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;, such as the Greens and Democrats, who are actually

serious about democracy within their organisations, and in the broader political process. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s time, indeed. Time we got more of an appetite for genuine debate, power sharing, real accountability, candidates who will represent their electorates rather than take orders from head ofďŹ ceâ&#x20AC;Ś andâ&#x20AC;Ś democracy. There is something rotten in the state of Australia. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the two party system. Tom Jagtenberg

End of an era Global warming is one sign of the ending of the current era of this aeon and the beginning of the next, and ďŹ nal, one. Those conservative thinkers, including the governmental greenies, who think that the related problems can be solved by means of science, technology and parliamentary-governed capitalism, including that of parliamentary democracy, as distinct from a radical change in their own state of self-consciousness, are off with the fairies at the bottom of my dear old grannyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s ganja garden.

Comment

Easing Byronâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s growing pains Dailan Pugh, BEACON The issue of how fast and big should Byron grow has now been resolved by the state government, at least for the time being. What remains is for Byron Shire Council to ďŹ ll in the details of how to best achieve the dwelling (population) targets that have been set while ensuring equity for landholders. They need to hurry up. The Far North Coast Regional Strategy establishes a target for Byron Shire of 2,600 dwellings over 25 years from 2006 (ie until 2031). These dwellings are required to be spread around the Shire (ie with 40% west of the highway) and need to be provided in stages over time. The trouble is that the big developers are rapidly using up our dwelling allocation and denying others their rights. In addition to Bectonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s recently approved 174

dwellings, there are existing proposals for another 205 dwellings at Bayside Brunswick, 130 dwellings adjacent to Sunrise, 220 dwellings on Belongil Fields, and now Crighton Properties are pushing for 600-700 dwellings adjacent to Belongil Fields. There are also many smaller multi-unit developments that have either been recently approved or are seeking approval. When you consider that the Regional Strategy target is effectively for 624 new dwellings being built east of the highway over the next ten years, it is apparent that the big boys are going to have a ďŹ ght over the division of the spoils. One thing is certain, if Byron Council continues to dither there will be nothing left for small landholders. All those proposals for garden flats (which represent the

most affordable form of accommodation outside caravan parks in Byron) will have to be scrapped, along with dual occupancies, ďŹ&#x201A;ats and other inďŹ ll development. The Regional Strategy requires that Council prepares a Local Growth Management Strategy to identify how best to meet its dwelling targets. This gives Council the opportunity to ensure that allowances for new dwellings are equitably distributed between towns, rural areas, and landholders. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s also likely to be the last chance to provide for affordable housing. The public exhibition of a Growth Strategy will give us all the chance to have a say on how best to meet Byronâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s dwelling targets. Council needs to act urgently to complete this relatively simple, though probably controversial, task. In the

interim it is essential that Council places a moratorium on approving any more large developments so as not to foreclose other landholderâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s options and rights. Byron should consider itself lucky to be on a slow growth trajectory relative to our neighbours of Ballina and Tweed. It gives us the opportunity to evolve as a community (rather than being overwhelmed), to better live in line with environmental and infrastructure constraints, and to better cope with our tourist burden. Letâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not blow the Regional Strategy before we even start to implement it. Q Byron Environment and Conservation (BEACON) is a conservation lobby group. Dailan Pugh was awarded the Order of Australia in 2003 for services to forest conservation.

Too much food for taut young bodies John Campbell David Hicks and Greenhouse have nudged the epidemic of fat kids off the front pages, but that doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t mean theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re not still there. You canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t help noticing, what with the tsunami of Easter visitors. I reflected on this as I drove Cat Carer and Faerie Queene to Coolangatta Airport on Sunday. After decades of sifting ďŹ&#x201A;our and getting the right balance of sugar and eggs, the old boilerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s impossible dream had ďŹ nally come true. One of her sponges was in the baking finals at the Royal Easter Show. She hasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t been there since Jimmy Sharman was challenging young toughs in the crowd to slug it out with his troupe of broken-nosed bush pugs (tempus fugit, I sigh). In fact, it was in the boxing tent that she met Cat Carerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s father, The Ferret. He fell into her lap unconscious after having his front teeth knocked out by some brute from Brewarrina. She took pity on the poor sod and invited him home for a cuppa. The only thing he could eat for a week were her sponges. It was love at ďŹ rst bite. Cat Carer joined her mother for the trip because she canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t abide the throng of the Blues Festâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s canvas Kaaba (I like her because she reminds me of myself). The spiders in Faerie Queeneâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s purse preclude her from paying to keep her Datsun in the airportâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s car park. I think sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s also embarrassed to have it surrounded by gleaming auto-porn 4x4s, but I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t mention that,

cheerful to be of service and cruising on the picturebook freeway. I especially like the tunnels and their unnatural lighting. Freed from the shireâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s potholed roads, the Commie chewed up the ks. Its wire coathanger aerial quivered joyously in the fury of our progress, providing reception without static or fading. How good the footy call sounded (Panthers v Titans) â&#x20AC;&#x201C; at least for the ďŹ ve minutes before my passengersâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; mutiny forced me to change the station. I twisted the dial to my next choice, ABC Classic FM. An elegant Boccherini string quartet. Just the shot, I thought. But they spat the dummy at that, too. â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;I think you passed through â&#x20AC;Ś â&#x20AC;Ś.â&#x20AC;&#x2122; Cat Carer lobbied hard for a return to the station that was playing an insipid singer/songwriter whose name I canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t remember. Faerie Queene stared into space, fantasising about winning the blue ribbon for her sponge. Daughter and I

Differing views of festival sites: Yelgun and Tyagarah Q At a meeting on March 26, 300 residents objected strongly to Council proceeding with a DA for the Splendour in the Grass Festival at North Ocean Shores. Cr Jan Mangleson sees this as an opportunity to do a deal with the developers. If Council purchases land at the proposed festival site for

use as sportsfields, then Spendour will pay 50% for an indoor sports facility. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d like to point out that the land being considered is a ďŹ&#x201A;oodplain.

the same time as a festival? Children, families as well as festival-goers will all want to access the site at the same time. This is neither safe nor convenient. Furthermore, the festival will have a negative impact on the Billinudgel Nature Reserve. The peaceful lives and the amenities of the residents in the north of the shire will be lost to big business â&#x20AC;&#x201C; permanently. We need sportsďŹ elds, but this is not a good idea. Sue Knight

Ocean Shores Q The proposed Splendour In The Grass site is well chosen. It is positioned on cleared ex cattle farm land on the north side of Jones Road, a road which runs along a high ridgeline. This land falls away sharply to the north, forming a perfect, beautiful setting for musical/cinema events in the north of our Shire. Ri Fraser writes, â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;The noise will affect a large residential area of approximately 7,000 population.â&#x20AC;&#x2122; An incorrect statement arousing fears in many of the population already suffering from trafďŹ c noise due to incorrect routing of the PaciďŹ c Highway. Mother Earth is the best insulator and absorber of unwanted noise. Because of the high ridgeline of Jones Road, no noise will drift towards populated areas. This can be proved by setting up a test trial using modern directional sound equipment

with music raised to the decibel level of the proposed event. Most events are held in large tents/buildings and with modern directional sound equipment and new generation sound engineering very little sound is heard outside. Do not confuse well organized events with the tortuous noise coming from our local pubs and doofs using outdated sound equipment. Ri Fraser also writes â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Event goers (drugs and alcohol usually imbibed by a large percentage will ďŹ&#x201A;ood intoâ&#x20AC;Ś)â&#x20AC;&#x2122; This is another alarmist, highly exaggerated statement. Event organisers have a strictly regulated duty of care and would lose their licence if drugs/ alcohol consumption is not policed and prevented on their property. I have attended many events and as a non smoker, non drinker and one who wants harsher penalties for drug pushers, appreciate the strict enforcement of the law by event organisers. At the Ocean Shores meeting another issue raised was a possible bank-up of trafďŹ c. It takes an average 4.5 seconds to admit vehicles into the parking site, but nine seconds to process vehicles at a booth once inside. More than one booth is used for processing inside, therefore no large build-up occurs. At the next community consultation meeting I hope that no person is confronted with the personal abuse and insults experienced by me when I attempted to speak in support of Splendour proposals. Thanks to the many who phoned or spoke to me since about the shameful, undemocratic treatment A separate spin-off issue is the possibility of Splendour offering to sell the

front block to Byron Council for a much needed sportsďŹ eld in Ocean Shores. Since we have lost the Lot 107 Shara Boulevarde site, it is the last remaining land of size suitable for a multiple sportsďŹ elds. Ray Ellis

Ocean Shores QContrary to Peter Nobleâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s claims in last weekâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Echo that he has â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;no plans right here this moment to do anything other than what I am doing right nowâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; we have heard from many sources that Peter Noble has bought the tea tree farm in Tyagarah. Now we have a proposed site at Yelgun and I would assume that Peter will want the Blues Fest in Tyagarah. Do we need two sites for Byron? Do we need any sites for Byron? The site in Tyagarah ďŹ&#x201A;oods rapidly including the lower part of the highway. Even longtime residents are surprised sometimes by how quickly ďŹ&#x201A;ooding can occur. If the Tyagarah site is used, it is a recipe for disaster, as there is no way to be able to get that many festival goers evacuated in the amount of time before severe ďŹ&#x201A;ooding. Also, I live next door to the nature reserve and see many highly poisonous snakes on our property. Having campers who are not familiar with snakes is an interesting situation to contemplate. Isaac Shapiro

Tyagarah QTyagarah is not the place for a festival site of any kind. 1. The sound pollution will travel for miles because there are no hills or buildings of any signiďŹ cance to hold it back. It will affect all residences between the sea and

Coolaman Scenic Drive. It is not going to be one festival but many, which will increase over time because the owners and organisers will get greedier. They have no thought or sympathy for the local inhabitants who bought their land and property in the country precisely to get away from noise. We will not hear the music, we will only hear the doof, doof of the bass notes which are the notes that travel the furthest through air. 2. The trafďŹ c movements in and out of Byron will be horrendous as the majority of festival goers will without any shadow of doubt go in and out of Byron several times a day during each festival. At the moment the majority walk into town. This must add to the risk of more and more drink drivers getting back to the sight after visiting the pubs and clubs. The queues going off and on the highway will be long and must be a potential threat to road safety. The Tyagarah turnoff, going north, is on the blind side of a railway bridge with limited long distance visability and must be a danger point for fast travelling B doubles suddenly confronted with a stationary queue of trafďŹ c. 3. This land is a ďŹ&#x201A;oodplain. It rains every Easter. 4. The Byron Bay community have had this festival for 18 years now, they know what to expect and how to organise themselves for each occasion, the infrustructure is in place and improving each year. Why canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t it stay where it is or go somewhere else, like the Gold Coast, but not Tyagarah. This development must be stopped. It is unfair, unjust, wholly unnessasary and not suitable.

BMW takes up carbon package BMW was in town at The Byron at Byron Resort, launching their new X5 to the national market. As a part of their launch they took up the Byron at Byronâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Carbon Neutral Conferencing package. The resort teamed with Rainforest Rescue to offer the package, which calculates the amount of carbon dioxide created by each conference. This carbon footprint includes the CO² emissions from travel, accommodation and general conferencing activities. Rainforest Rescue then plants rainforest trees in the Byron hinterland rainforest areas to offset this CO² output. â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;It may sound like an unu-

sual dichotomy,â&#x20AC;&#x2122; said the Resortâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s manager Lyn Parche, â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;luxury cars and tree planting. But itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s about working toward making whatever we do as carbon neutral as we can, whether thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s assisting a company launch a new car or looking at ways to cut down our electricity consumption.â&#x20AC;&#x2122; Every rainforest tree absorbs approximately one tone of CO² over its lifetime and for those who attended the launch a tree has been purchased and planted on their behalf. Tom Noble, BMWâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Australiaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s general manager of marketing, said, â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;The resort embodies a lot of the ideals that BMW has.

â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s very environmentally friendly and ďŹ ve star in its approach. And Byronâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s weather, location and roads all make it a great place to drive around in. â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re about efficient dynamics â&#x20AC;&#x201C; how we can make our cars perform but be as efďŹ cient as possible. In the new X5 the engines are 17%19% more powerful yet at the same time are 8%-9% more fuel efďŹ cient. â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re also creating a liquid hydrogen car. Hydrogen as a fuel is viable and drives very similarly to a petrol engine, yet the only emissions coming out of them are water. â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Carbon neutral makes a lot of sense for us.â&#x20AC;&#x2122;

Palm oil use drives forest destruction PM John Howard’s announcement of $200 million over five years to help developing countries preserve their forests is a positive step in the right direction. However its success will be limited if the federal government does nothing to address the drivers of deforestation. According to Tony Gilding, Byron Shire resident and Australian Orangutan Project (AOP) spokesman, massive tracts of rainforest are being cleared daily in Indonesia much of it to make way for palm oil. Australians are unwittingly adding to the problem through consumption of palm oil products. Palm oil is in many shampoos, fish and chips and thousands of processed foods. It is also touted as an environmentally friendly biodiesel, a claim which AOP firmly rejects. Australians currently

import 10kg per person of palm oil per annum ( 224,000 tonnes). There is no point Australia offering to help on the one hand but buying the offending products on the other, says Tony Gilding. ‘The key question is how will these taxpayer funds be spent and will they really stop the destruction. ‘This announcement comes at a critical time for the world’s dwindling rainforests. The Indonesian rainforests are the most speciesrich in the world containing iconic animals like orangutans, elephants, rhinos, tigers, leopards, sun bears, gibbons and monkeys. ‘Much of the deforestation of Indonesia’s rainforests is on the islands of Borneo and Sumatra, the only home of one of man’s closest cousins, the orangutan who shares 96.4% of our DNA. A star-

tling new report published by the United Nations in January predicts that 98% of the natural rainforest in Indonesia will be degraded or gone by 2022 if nothing is done to combat current trends (www. guardian.co.uk/commentisfree/story/0,,2043724,00. html). This would spell extinction for the wild orangutan species. ‘In addition, the drainage of Indonesian peat lands produces 632 million tonnes of carbon dioxide a year,

The report found that the average lifetime financial cost of cancer on a household in NSW equates to 1.7 years of annual household income. ‘To ease the load for families who are really struggling, we now give grants to patients via social workers and are also awarding money to community groups to roll out cancer control initiatives on a local level.’ According to the report, in 2005 at least $2.5 million was spent on providing accommodation to people with cancer by non-profit organisations in NSW. ‘The costs of travel and accommodation can be prohibitive for patients, particularly when you consider many have to endure long courses of chemotherapy and radiotherapy far from their home. We’re now directing more money into transport for patients to get to treatment, funding services in Gloucester, Port Stephens and the Southern Highlands. ‘It does help that, after years of lobbying, the government expanded the assistance available through IPTAAS so now 11,000 additional patients get assistance to travel to treatment. However, this report shows that more needs to be done. ‘As the incidence of cancer increases with the ageing of the population, we will need a greater focus on addressing the hidden costs of cancer that patients have to bear.’

be partly attributed to the global “green” push for biofuel which can be made from palm oil. In a recent article, George Monbiot, an environmental and political activist/journalist in the UK, has asserted that “biodiesel from palm oil causes 10 times as much climate change as ordinary diesel”. ‘Consequently, it is imperative that the governments of developed nations around the world take a strong stance in defence of tropical rainfor-

ests. Indonesia needs financial, strategic and logistical assistance to control the illegal logging operations that are ravaging its forests. ‘These developing countries also require a financial incentive from rich western countries to preserve their forests. The action taken by the federal government is a positive step towards safeguarding the lungs of the planet and the future of its biodiversity, including ourselves.’

Electoral enrolment now requires proof of identity

Patients face $9,000 cancer bill The cost of cancer in NSW has been calculated for the first time, with a new report commissioned by The Cancer Council NSW showing patients pay an average of $8,900 in out-of-pocket expenses. ‘This report paints a grim picture of the financial burden of cancer,’ said Gillian Batt, Director of Cancer Information and Support Services at The Cancer Council NSW. ‘We know that people have to face enormous challenges physically and psychologically when they’re diagnosed with cancer, but we’ve now got a clear sense of how much financial support they need.’ The report, conducted by Access Economics, found that prostate cancer and breast cancer are more expensive to patients mainly due to ongoing medication and treatment, while bowel cancer and lung cancer are more expensive to the economy as a whole. ‘The costs are really variable, depending on the type of cancer and the individual’s circumstance. ‘For example, a young woman with breast cancer could be faced with $40,300 in lost productivity and outof-pocket expenses, as she may need ongoing drugs on prescription and things like lymphedema sleeves and breast prostheses. A pensioner with bowel cancer would be facing costs of approximately $10,000 on average, even though a lot of his treatment will occur at hospital.’

according to Marcel Silvius from Wetlands International. But what is even more disturbing is the releasing of another 1,400 million tonnes of carbon dioxide annually from agricultural fires lit to clear land particularly for palm oil plantations. In comparison, a country like the Netherlands emits only 80 million tonnes a year (http://news. b b c. c o. u k / 2 / h i / a s i a pacific/6354079.stm). ‘Recent deforestation can

Free your voice in local choir Local singer Parissa Bouasâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s latest project is a community choir which starts a new ten week term at the Byron Yoga Centre on Tuesday April 24, 7pmâ&#x20AC;&#x201C; 8.30pm. Cost for ten weeks is $170. The choir had its debut performance at the Peace Convergence on March 31 at the Byron Community Centre. â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;This is a community choir so everyone is welcome,â&#x20AC;&#x2122; said Parissa. â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;You donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have to be a brilliant singer or have past experience. â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll be starting with easier pieces and seeing where the group is at. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll also be using warmups that improve the voice and train the ear to hear harmony and rhythm better. â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;It takes a while for a choir to build its sound. Mostly I want people to have fun and feel that special bonding that happens when we sing together. â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d love to have 20â&#x20AC;&#x201C;30 people coming along. Lots of men â&#x20AC;&#x201C; I love their voices, but it is often hard to get them to

join choirs... maybe they think itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s too wussy? â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;I have very eclectic musical taste and am attracted to musical gems from around the world. While travelling in Greece in 2005 visiting my family I discovered the folk singing of the Ionian Islands. â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Their music is very influenced by Italian and Sardinian traditions and is quite different to other parts of Greece. So weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll be doing a few of those mixed in with Latin American, Gaelic, Bulgarian and African songs. â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;This is my ďŹ rst local choir for many years, because Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve been touring too much with The Hottentots, so Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m very excited about it.â&#x20AC;&#x2122; In 2000 Parissa cowrote the anthemic â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;PutYour Hand in Mineâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; for the Woodford Millennium Fire Event Choir (see picture below) of 700 voices, which she also conducted.

billion people in 61 countries. â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;This one performance was the highlight of my life...700 voices singing my song, with me conducting like crazy to keep it all together with the band and Neil Cameronâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s fireworks going off behind me, the ABC cameras recording. â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;When I walked around the festival afterwards people would break into the song and I would burst into tears.â&#x20AC;&#x2122; Parissa also stages â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Sunday Singupsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;. â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;I know that a lot of people like to go to church to sing on Sundays. So this is just the singing without the rest... singing itself is innately spiritual.â&#x20AC;&#x2122; The next â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Sunday Singupâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; will be held on June 24 at Ewingsdale Hall, 10amâ&#x20AC;&#x201C;2 pm, $30.

Musical chairs at Arts NR Arts Northern Rivers CEO Lois Randall will take six months leave to work as the production manager for East of Everything â&#x20AC;&#x201C; a new television series by Sea Change producer Deb Cox, and cowriter Roger Monk, being shot entirely in the Northern Rivers region. As CEO for Arts Northern Rivers Lois played a signiďŹ cant part in securing the production for the region, which has already proven to be a boon for the hundreds of screen industry workers who live in the Northern Rivers. The Arts Northern Rivers board agreed to the leave proposal, recognising it as an important professional development opportunity that will become an asset for the organisation when Lois returns in September this year. In the meantime former Northern Rivers Writersâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; Centre and Byron Bay Writers Festival Director Jill Eddington will replace Lois. Jill said, â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m thrilled with the opportunity to work with the many individuals and organisations that make up the creative industries in this region. There are a number of exciting projects that Arts Northern Rivers has on the boil and Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m looking forward to seeing them through to completion.â&#x20AC;&#x2122; For more about Arts Northern Rivers visit www. artsnorthernrivers.com.au.

Mardi Grass aims for safe festival According to Michael Balderstone, Hemp Embassy president, â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;We want a â&#x20AC;&#x153;safe friendly festival for all participants, visitors and local residentsâ&#x20AC;? also, as Superintendent Bruce Lyons from Richmond Local Area Command said. â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s hard to believe the police will come in such high numbers as last year. Many of them were overheard saying â&#x20AC;&#x153;What are we doing here?â&#x20AC;? They looked bored at times and have never answered questions asked in NSW Parliament by Greens member Ian Cohen about the cost of policing Mardi Grass. They came last year because of supposed threats of gang violence.Whatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s their excuse this year? â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;For years weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve rolled out the same line, â&#x20AC;&#x153;The harder they police cannabis the more people turn to more

dangerous, harder drugs which are largely undetectableâ&#x20AC;?. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s all come true and now ice is a real problem. â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;We invite the police, or those among them who understand whatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s going on, to march with us on Sunday in the Cannabis Law Reform Rally. The English cannabis laws were recently changed because the police asked for it, and since the change a new respect has emerged for law enforcers. When are we going to review how our war on drugs is going in Australia? â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;We need real community policing instead of political point-scoring orders coming from Sydney, out of touch completely with whatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s really going on. There has never been a problem with violence at MardiGrass, in fact the opposite, thanks largely to the very herb in question.

The few arrests over the years are usually alcohol related. â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Last year the police turned back MardiGrass visitors on the Nimbin entry roads, telling them that â&#x20AC;&#x153;Nimbin is fullâ&#x20AC;? or â&#x20AC;&#x153;MardiGrass is cancelled!â&#x20AC;? This year we will have our own fleet of MUNCH (Monitoring Unfair Nimbin Cannabis Hype) vehicles on the road giving out MardiGrass information and bearing witness to police behaviour. â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Many people believe the police tried to provoke a riot at MardiGrass last year, so they could cancel the event. If this is true it is appalling, but whatever, we will do our utmost to make it a peaceful protest. Last year all they got was a riot of colour!â&#x20AC;&#x2122; Nimbinâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s 15th Mardigrass is on May 5 and 6 â&#x20AC;&#x201C; see www. nimbinmardigrass.com.

world following the recent defeat of the old enemy from the coast, kick off their campaign on Sunday with a visit to Casino while The Devils, with the bye this weekend, will have to wait until Round 2 to get stuck in when they travel to Murwillum-

bah for what will be a keenly anticipated showdown with the highly fancied Mustangs. Unfortunately, the draw doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t see The Giants and The Devils come to grips until Round 7, by which time both teams should be in top gear.

and

tialed in the game, being familiar with success at the highest professional levels, the two newcomers at the helm are club men through and through. Nicklin was a member of Byronâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s last premiership winning team in 1996 and Scott, a product of the mighty St Gregoryâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s College nursery, where he played under the mentorship of the renowned Peter Mulholland, is a loyal servant of the blueand-golds who only hung his boots up last year. Heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll have the vast experience and class of Paul Latta and the quality of the returning Adam McKenzie, Scott Hogan and Glen Goodbee to rely on as well as the pool of rapidly improving youngsters who made it to the 2006 reserve grade Ă&#x20AC;nal. Down at the Bay itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a case of hello stranger for a restructured team. Like the Bunnies in the NRL, the Devils didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t like the taste of last yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s wooden spoon and, thanks to the

tremendous enterprise of its ofĂ&#x20AC;cials working behind the scenes, have pulled off a major recruiting drive in the off-season. Local juniors Nathan Cross, the new captain, and Michael Lambert have come back to the club and the ranks have been bolstered by a number of hardened players from the Queensland Cup, David Strachan, Jay McDermott, Ryan Oâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;Connell and Ben Hill. There is a new found conĂ&#x20AC;dence and â&#x20AC;&#x201C; no beating around the bush â&#x20AC;&#x201C; they expect to make the semis. With any luck, that will be in all three grades, a dramatic turnaround from

2 0 0 6 , when the Devils frequently struggled to field two teams. With last yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Under 16s champions coming on, the optimism for the future is well founded. It wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t be easy for either side, however. This is a tough comp and, with the Gold Coast Titans just up the road and looking to our area as a source of potential NRL talent, the ante has been upped considerably for everybody involved. The standard of football, which has always been good, can only get better. As a result there wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t be any soft games and all competition points will be hard earned. Already the Bay have had a morale boosting, handsome victory over the always strong Marist Brothers but stumbled against a committed Mullum outĂ&#x20AC;t in a tight and uncompromising encounter last month. The Giants, feeling a whole lot happier with the

he long limbo for footy fans is almost over. The cricketers have had their day in the sun and itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s getting a bit nippy for the beach, which means that, at last, we can look forward to the thrills and spills, the grunt and Ă air, the rolling thunder of rugby league, the greatest game of all. Last yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s NRRRL has, with new sponsorship for 2007, morphed into the Retravision Northern League. There will be fourteen A-grade teams â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Ballina, Byron Bay, Casino, Cudgen, Grafton, Kyogle, Lower Clarence, Marist Brothers, Mullumbimby, Murwillumbah, South Grafton, South Tweed Heads and Tweed Coast Raiders â&#x20AC;&#x201C; battling it over eighteen rounds of footy to make it into the top Ă&#x20AC;ve play-offs and from there to the ultimate, Septemberâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s grand Ă&#x20AC;nal. The reigning premiers, Cudgen, are not exactly in disarray, but the split that has seen their coach Jamie Matthieu take a number of last yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s championship side with him into the QRL means that they have been brought back to the field â&#x20AC;&#x201C; a field that includes from our neck of the woods the radically made-over Byron Bay Red Devils and the Mullumbimby Giants, the 2004 premiers who, buoyed by the return of some favourite sons, will be hell bent on making up for their unlucky 2006, when they just missed out on making the semis. Both of the local outĂ&#x20AC;ts will be under the watchful eyes of energetic new coaches. Vince Nicklin has taken over at The Devils while, at Mullum, the reins are now in the hands of Damon Scott. Well travelled and highly creden-

Mullumbimby Public School finished Term One in fine style, with an Easter Hat Parade and a giant Easter Egg Raffle. As part of the school’s Class Buddy program, senior students at the school were matched with junior students to help create some fabulous hats for the parade, and also to foster strong bonds of friendship and community. Older students gain a sense

of responsibility as they assist the younger pupils, while younger students learn to feel trust and a sense of belonging to the school. The Buddy system is wellingrained within the school, where nearly all of the 320 students seem to know each other. Friendships cross both class and age boundaries, and pupils are encouraged to assist each other when-

ever needed. The Easter Hat Parade is the most obvious display of this program in action. As well as the parade, the giant Easter Egg Raffle is a feature on the school’s annual fund-raising calendar. This year was the biggest ever, with 70 baskets of donated eggs to be raffled, and over $1,000 was raised for the school.

Mums want birthing options The recent formation of The Northern Rivers Maternity Action Group, highlights community demand for better birthing options. The Northern Rivers Maternity Action Group believe the community needs to become better informed about current maternity care choices available to local women, and to be aware of alternative models of care operating in other areas of NSW. The group held its first meeting on March 29 and is part of the wider North Coast Maternity Action Group, with members as far south as Bellingen. Spokesperson Sandy Jeudwine said ‘A number of women identified the Northern Rivers as the homebirth capital of Australia, with many locals seeking alternatives to mainstream lifestyles, yet the local area health service appears to be the most conservative in the state, hardly responsive to community needs. ‘This is borne out by figures available from the Registry of Births, Deaths and Marriages, which show home birth rates of between 50-60 women a year delivering their babies outside of hospital in this area, many

of these unable to afford engaging a private midwife are birthing unattended. We are really concerned about the safety of these women and their babies, who are opting out of health care which does not meet their needs, especially when you consider that other area health services in NSW offer publicly funded and supported home births. The Northern Rivers Maternity Action Group would like to see midwidery led care (supported as cost effective by the National Health and Medical Research Council) and continuity of caregiver, as a publicly funded service, available to women in the Northern Rivers, regardless of whether she chooses to birth at home, a birth centre

We have been dispensing herbs to the community for over a decade. During this time we have evolved away from using commercial products where herbs are sourced from exceedingly diverse places such as Eastern Block and South American countries. Quality standards in raw herbs tend to vary greatly. At Mullum Herbals we grow many of our herbs locally, organically, or source our materials from premium quality Australian organic growers. With best available organic herbs we manufacture our own tinctures using minimal heat. This results in medicines that maximise the healing power of plants. Phone 6684 3002

n one of the most remote islands within the Solomon Islands, subsistence farmers and ďŹ shermen live one of the worldâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s truly carbon neutral lives. Narasirato Pan Pipers are currently on tour within Australia, raising money for a Cultural House in their village, and in the wake of the Tsunami that devastated coastal regions within the Solomons, they are contributing part of their CD sales towards relief efforts. Peter Keelan is their road manager and promoter, in a phone chat from just outside Denmark WA, he described the rather unique communication

â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;These guys live in untouched rainforest. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a stunningly beautiful place, 10 kilometres up the lagoon, you can see what happens when people sell out their land to logging companies. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s devastating. They are very very strong people, very strong leaders, all of their supreme spiritual belief systems are still intact. They donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have the money to educate themselves, thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s part of what we are working on â&#x20AC;&#x201C; their music is extraordinary and they get standing ovations wherever they go.â&#x20AC;&#x2122;

E N T E R TA I N M E N T

â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;The guys I am with have a very old tradition â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Areâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;are tradition â&#x20AC;&#x201C; and that tradition goes back to the beginning of time in their historical Waratoâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;o and that is their supreme belief system. They say the pan pipe was birthed at the beginning of time.â&#x20AC;&#x2122; â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;They do a lot of unaccompanied dances with 4 part harmony in voice. Yesterday they pulled out this dance Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d never seen before. I have lived in their village for long periods of time, been on tour, and yesterday they pulled out two things I have never seen before! They are very funny guys. They have a John Cleese-like sense of humour! We were driving down here and their lead singer pulled out a uke and he gave a

When queried about the civil unrest within the Solomon Islands, Peter negates that as negative media representation.

was going to sleep and heard this beautuiďŹ&#x201A; pan pipe music and I peeked through the cracks in the pandanus and it was all these 8 and 10 year old kids impersonating Narasirato. The leader of the group Donaton Manuasi is leading a cultural revival, and he has been passionate about this since he formed the group in 91, especially about teaching the children. He told me once, when he was in Year 12 all he could think about was taking his culture all over the world.â&#x20AC;&#x2122; So what is it like, travelling with people who are used to leaving such faint footprints in a ďŹ rst world culture, that as David Suzuki once put it, â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;leaves deserts for footprintsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;?

FOREST MUSIC AND PIPE DREAMS

â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Being on this tour is like being part of the Gods must be Crazy. They are coming out of village life and getting things like swipe cards for hotel rooms â&#x20AC;&#x201C; something they have never seen before. Some have never toured before. Your supermarket is how much you dig with your hands. If I asked the 50 members of the group for every dollar they had I would be lucky to get $100. Not one person in the group owns a pair of shoes.â&#x20AC;&#x2122;

â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a very complex system to get a message through. I email a man in the city, he gets on a short wave radio and then radios someone two hours up the lagoon, someone gets in a dug-out canoe and paddles 2 hours down the lagoon and tells someone in the village.â&#x20AC;&#x2122; With the phone out of the equation, this form of communication is purely â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;mobileâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;!

I reďŹ&#x201A;ected to a Helena NorbergHodge documentary I saw once, which depicted a village of subsistence farmers impacted by globalisation and ďŹ rst world culture. While villagers may have no money, or shoes, poverty is something that only arrives with a free market economy. Peter agreed:

Peter Keelanâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s passion is the Pan Pipe. Being a player now himself, he recalled the ďŹ rst time they met. â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;I was about 19 and I was very sporty, I was given the opportunity to represent Australia at the Worldâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s YMCA conference in South America. We stopped in Chile, and there I heard the Pan Pipe. It sent tingles up my spine. I fell in love and it became a lifelong passion. But now, I am as much interested in the music as I am in eveyrthing else that goes with the culture, the games children play, what people eat. For instance with Narasirato I am as interested in the people wanting to log out their rainforest as I am in their music.â&#x20AC;&#x2122; Narasirato hail from Malaita Island, and are one of the few tribes who havenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t succumbed to selling their logging rights to the Malaysian government.

â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Up until 2000 they were one of the most peaceful nations on earth. But people became tired of corruption at the high levels â&#x20AC;&#x201C; what you see here is the tv/press images of the Solomons. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s safer being anywhere in the Solomon Islands â&#x20AC;&#x201C; at any time than most places in the West â&#x20AC;&#x201C; theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re very peaceful people.â&#x20AC;&#x2122;

Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the strong ties with tradition, and the life untouched by capitalist economy that Peter credits in imbuing Narasarito with such power.

Narasiratoâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s music is the spiritual spine of the village. Their music keeps the new generations connected to their culture, their stories and their language. Their music, as their album title proclaims is â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;The Cry of the Ancestors.â&#x20AC;&#x2122;

â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;The reason I am working with these guys is that itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s very intact (their culture), for instance in their village, I get put into the menâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s only house, and women canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t come near. (My husband dreams of such a place). I

[ the soapbox ] [ mandy nolan ] Richard Chamberlain as the bell ringer of a watery apocalypse. It ends with a prostrate and powerless Chamberlain facing the oncoming wave. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a great ďŹ lm. It is true horror. The images have remained with me for over twenty years, and deep in my subconscious there is an unshakeable paralysing terror at the thought of our streets, our towns and our landscape being suddenly consumed by water â&#x20AC;&#x201C; like being held in the gums of a giant toothless god.

he Big Wave. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s been prophesied for years. It inspired hundreds of paranoid hippies to take cover in their rainforest treehouses some twenty years back, and there are still those who keep their larder well stocked with canned goods and fresh heads, just in case. Nothing like a blast on a 1975 Rosebank reefer to enhance the culinary potential of baked beans as Upper Main Arm becomes beachfront.

The Boxing Day tsunami was one of the most chilling events in history. In moments, a natural event claimed the lives of over 300 000 people. Curiously that event is still overshadowed by 9/11, the much celebrated death of 2000 white accountants. (In the game of human chess white king beats black pawns every time.) So one day post April

SurfinG the TSUNAMI Fools, Australia gets to test out its tsunami early warning system. Mainly that consisted of an East Coast game of Chinese Whispers with freaked out Aussies going â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Did you hear about the fuckinâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; sarnami?â&#x20AC;&#x2122; Beaches were closed. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s spooky, but a bloody excellent time to get a wave at The Pass. And a park. That slow Weir inspired terror started rising in my legs. Here it comes. I thought, do I get the kids from school? Maybe I should hedge my bets and just pick up the one, abandonment and rejection can be great fodder for personality development. I was pleased to learn that a few other overprotective breeders like myself had already been in. The schools were contacted by emergency services to

have an evacuation strategy. Like what are you going to do? â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Alright kids, grab your desks and kick.â&#x20AC;&#x2122; I removed all three children from school. I would say their expression was less of fear, and more of sheer delight. It was hard though, to look into the wide eyes of the uncollected children without feeling guilt. I drove to Coolamon Scenic Vista where around 40 people were gathered to watch the rest of you poor fuckers die. I realised, then and there, that I am neurotic and that I was in fact gathered with my people, my fellow cowards, the obsessive compulsives at Coolamon. We were watching the sea for a wave, which at best would have been 10cm high. If 10cm goes unnoticed under the

As your basic 5 year old will attest, death is preferable to boredom. I asked the mob if the threat was over. One of the blokes was adamant: â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Nah, not yet, I wouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t be going back in yet. They still havenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t called off the warning.â&#x20AC;&#x2122; So I waited another half hour. Then it dawned on me. Most of the people on the hill were wagging work. There was even a bloke up there from the SES on a blanket having a cup of tea. They werenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t concerned about facing the wave, they just didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t want to face work. My 8 year old daughter started reading the grafďŹ ti. While my fellow neurotics quietly perused the coast for signs of natural

disaster, she chimes in â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;I shave my pubes.â&#x20AC;&#x2122; No reaction. Then she said it again. And then again. â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Mum, what does it mean: I shave my pubes?â&#x20AC;&#x2122; What possesses someone to write that at a scenic lookout? I wipe my bum, but I have never felt a desire to inscribe that at a bus stop. While Australians ďŹ&#x201A;ed to the high country, villages in the Solomon Islands were wiped out. In the face of our fear, our compassion didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t really kick in until nightly news time when we were declared safe. I have to admit, there was a tiny part of me that wanted to see Wategoâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s and its 16 million dollar properties sink into the sea, or at least snap off and become the lost island of the rich. So, nothing happened. It was the boy that cried tsunami. And we all know what happened to him. He shaved his pubes.

Toddâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s musical inďŹ&#x201A;uences include Willie Nelson, Bob Dylan, Elliott Smith, Dire Straits and Stevie Wonder but says that â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;because of his experimentation with tunings and melody â&#x20AC;&#x2DC; he has been most inďŹ&#x201A;uenced by Nick Drake. Even though he is a well respected surfer, Todd

SurďŹ ng nonetheless has played a large part in Toddâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s career so far. Travel has also inďŹ&#x201A;uenced Toddâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s music. Todd shared music and songs with musicians he met during his travels around the world and draws inspiration from their lives and culture. One country that Todd has not yet visited is Ireland, although his song â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Irelandâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; from his â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Volume Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; album, is about his Irish ancestry. â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;I have never been to Ireland and my father is 100% Irish so I wrote a song about an imaginary journey there sailing through storms and arriving to a full Celtic band playing on the hills.â&#x20AC;&#x2122; Todd has played live with and recorded many musicians, ranging from Jack Johnson and the Malloy brothers who are childhood friends of his, to Tristan Prettyman, Crosby Loggins, Minnie Driver, Joshua Grange, Ted Lennon, Aerto Morea (Miles Davis percussionist), Fernie Apodaca and Xocoyotzin Moraza among others.

It seems the Yanks and the Johnny Rebs relate to our music, {It would be great if they could relate to our politics as well and get the hell out of Iraq}.

At around the same time banjo maestro Uncle Burninâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; Love hopped off the Re-Mains bus so he could spend more time with his kids, The Re-Mains loss has been our gain as he is now playing in The Real Gone Hick-Ups with great effect.

CULTURE DANCE PETER AND THE WOLF LOOKING FOR FRESH MEAT

After the success of The Nutcracker last year, The Byron Ballet Company are busy casting and preparing for the well known childrens ballet ‘Peter and the Wolf’ to be performed in late June. The company is looking for advanced classical and contemporary dancers including a strong male dancer for the role of the wolf, some roles involve pointe work. There is also corps de ballet roles for six to eight committed dancers from around 10 yrs plus several boys groups

The lecture, accompanied by slides, is to be given by Silvia Sagona

low? Followers of fashion like myself were shocked when the supremely low pant fashion made a hasty retreat up to the bustline. Where will the waist be this season? How about, a waist line at the waist line, but we go for a low bust line? Tribal tits are finally back in. OK, thats just my surgery free fantasy, but it was worth a shot. If you ar a lover of art, and fashion and music, then do I have the gig for you: Hotel Great Northern on Wednesday 18 April: tix are just$12 and entry is from 9pm.

POETRY DANGEROUS WORDS April is the month, Dangerously Poetic will celebrate Aussie poetry, both iconic and contemporary. All poetry lovers are invited to join us on Sunday from 1pm at the Bangalow RSL Hall.

dance | fashion | poetry | art | comedy | theatre | lecture Featuring bush poet, Col Hadwell who began writing bush poetry 12 years ago after being inspired by listening to the bush poets at the Country Music Festival at Gympie. He published his own book, self illustrated ‘First Bunch of Ballads from Byron Bay’ in 1997 and won the prestigious Tamworth ‘The Blackened Billy Competition’ in 1999, placing 2nd the following year. Also featured is Melissa Lucashenko, an Australian writer of mixed European and Murri heritage, local author of award winning novels: Steam Pigs, Killing Darcy, Hard Yards and Too Flash.

He offers didge lessons and teaches about Aboriginal culture on Johnson Street. Bring along an original poem or a favourite by an Australian, either classical or contemporary to share in the Open Reading. Entry $5/$ 4 for DP members.

ART LEVEE MAN WHERE CAN YOU BE?? Jimmy Willing has just finished his painting, When The Levee Breaks on exhibition at the Lismore Art Gallery in association with Ted Harvey’s Led Zepplin exhibition. Jimmy has done some very interesting research on the Zeppelin song: ‘When the Levee Breaks’ to inspire his latest creation. ‘If it keeps on rainin’, levee’s goin’ to break.’These are the opening words to one of Rock & Rolls greatest songs, ‘When The Levee Breaks’. ‘When The Levee Breaks’ was recorded by Led Zeppelin on their ‘Symbols Album’. The writing credits were given to the four members of the band and to an old blues singer by the name of Memphis Minnie. Hunting down the original 1929 recording one finds a song

far removed from Zepp’s hard rock song. It was originally a jug band tune; country blues at its best and features Memphis Minnie on one guitar with her lyrics sung by her husband, Kansas Joe McCoy. What ties the souped-up Led Zeppelin version to the original is not the music of Kansas Joe but the words of Memphis Minnie. The 1927 flood was the greatest natural disaster that the United States had ever had to face. In the spring of that year the levee banks on the Mississippi River broke causing major catastrophy. The flood displaced 700,000 people and covered an area equal to four whole states. Looking deeper into the words one finds ‘I works on the levee, mama both night and day’. The levee of the song was a man-made wall of earth that protected the towns and valuable farmland of the Mississippi Delta from the river. Men, women and children of AfricanAmerican families were conscripted and forced to work on the levee and not allowed to evacuate. The white plantation owners refused to allow black population to leave the Delta fearing that they may never return. These people lived in squalor on a thin sliver of ground above the water. They were unpaid and threatened that if they did not work on the levee they would not be allowed the food that had been supplied by Red Cross flood relief. The whites on the other hand were allowed to evacuate, a gross inequality that fused huge racial tensions. Thus, this is, amongst other things, a song of protest. The flood of 1927 was the nation’s greatest natural disaster. In hard facts its devastation was phenomenal. Over 1,000 people died in the Yazoo-Mississippi Delta alone, 41,673 homes were flooded, 21,836 buildings were destroyed, 62,089 buildings were damaged and 2,836 work animals, 6,873 cattle, 31,740 hogs, and 266,786 poultry were drowned. A full farming year was lost and the economy was totally disrupted. The exodus that the white elite feared did in fact happen and many black families left the delta forever seeking a better life in the north. Many resettled in Chicago taking their delta Blues music with them to a new urban environment. Here in the big city the music became electrified and changed, ultimately leading to the birth of Rock & Roll. Music, art and culture are not born in a vacuum, there are always social, political and environmental forces at play. The Mississippi flood of 1927 was to dramatically effect the lives of hundreds of thousands of folks along it’s banks. It was the catalyst for

massive change. Popular culture would be very different today if the levee didn’t break. ‘ Now that’s the making of an excellent thesis. Courtesy of Jimmy Willing.

STAND UP COMEDY Remember the Big Gig? It introduced the country to stand up comedy and literally brought comics like The Doug Anthony All Stars and Wendy Harmer to national awareness. It created a comedy love affair that has continued ever since. Ballina is about to have it’s comedy hymen broken with it’s very own Big Gig, when the last Thursday of every month is comedy night at the Ballina RSL. The very first Big Gig is Thursday 26 April and features the sensational, Steve Allison. The Gold Coast Bulletin has called him ‘The Gold Coast’s favourite comic.’ Audience members, big and small attest the genius that is Steve Allison, who’s simple philosophy: ‘funny is funny’ resonates through every perfectly timed gag, every succinct set up. Jimeoin cacked himself, Bob Hawke was more than impressed and Mike Whitney said: ‘Great line, I’m going to use that!’

corporate gigs, International tours and television appearances, on ‘The Footy Show’ and The Comedy Channel’s ‘HeadLiners’. S teve Allison isn’t a yobbo. He’s a genuine larrikin, with an individual show of fun and laughter. He is joined by support act David Eastgate, who performed a showstopping set at the Big Joke Festival’s Comedy Breakfast this year. Insanely talented, Eastgate weaves story and experience into song and produces a sublimely funny and musically excellent show. I will be there as the monthly MC. The first three Big Gig’s are Free – to allow even the reticient and timid to become stand up audience initiates. Doors open at 7.45pm with an 8.30pm show. To secure a table come early and enjoy some dinner from the Bistro. Thursday 26 April at Ballina RSL.

dancin WICKED BEAT SOUND SYSTEM

sea change, or as they call it here a tree change, is great.

With the release of their ďŹ fth album Hydromajestik, Wicked Beat Sound System have maintained their position at the forefront of the Aussie electronic music scene. Hitting mainstream exposure with their debut album â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Music from the coreâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; in â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;96, WBSS have continued evolving their sound with this album conjuring a brighter down tempo, neo soul feel. Supporting the likes of Ben Harper and The Fugees and gaining heavy rotation on Triple J brought them a wider audience, while the excellent production, beautiful vocals and rocking live show has helped put WBSS at an international standard. The nucleus of the group, Damian Robinson, produced Hydromajestik at Bungendore near Canberra and as the album has a much more expansive feel than their previous releases I asked him how much his environment shaped the sound of the album?

Hyrdromajestik is more down tempo than its predecessors, due in part to the departure of MC Kye. With this more chilled out version will there be an impact on the dance ďŹ&#x201A;oor?

I think being in a peaceful environment either in the country or in the city is a useful thing for writing music. Generally a studio in the city is sound proofed and it can be quite peaceful but where you write and record is one element, what you do outside the studio is very important as well. Your lifestyle and mental attitude affects the recording process, so as your surroundings inďŹ&#x201A;uence that, your environment is becomes very important. So your environment affects where your head is at, and where your head is at makes a huge difference on the ďŹ nished result, it makes sense. The front cover of Hydromajestik shows a beautiful picture of snow covered trees near where the album was produced and seems indicative of the serene feel of the album. When we moved down here a few years ago, I remember thinking how magniďŹ cent it was but after a couple of years you get used to it, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s like anything. I grew up and lived most of my life in inner city Sydney, so to have had a

Yeah, our new album is a little bit more down tempo, Kye leaving has that impact, but thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the way things go. I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t think the show will really suffer from that it will just have more of a soul feel than a hip hop feel. You still have Lindaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s amazing voice so the foundation is still there, but has it changed much having Kye gone? Yeah, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a bit more relaxed, heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s an intense character Kye, heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s quite demanding in a lot of ways so our studio time is a bit more chilled out. Kyeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s involvement in the writing process wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t huge so itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not too much of a change. As the epicentre of WBSS how much inďŹ&#x201A;uence does Linda and other members of the band have on the song writing process? Quite a lot really, as much as they want. Generally the songs get written, half the time the songs will be instrumentals and Linda will have a listen and write some lyrics and melodies and weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll throw it back and forth and maybe change the music if we want to. The other half of the time, Linda will come with an idea and weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll whip something up quickly and Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll take that away and come back with something more wholesome. There are a variety of different ways we write. Some of the stuff we start we just chuck out, I try to edit myself as thoroughly as possible. If any things not quite happening Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll get rid of â&#x20AC;&#x201C; it thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not much point in keeping stuff I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t like. When producing do you sample live instruments or do you have a plethora of electronic samples you refer too? A bit of both really, I have a huge sound library that

4!45 ,5

with dan Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve collected over the years from sample CDâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s, recording stuff, all kinds of different sources. When it comes to speciďŹ c things I want, Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll get someone to play it and then I might chop it up or move it to a different song, thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s no rules with this sort of stuff. We donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t sample records as much anymore, we used to but it was more of a hip hop thing, I guess we just got better at playing it ourselves. You worked at the Sydney Opera house for many years, do you think this has inďŹ&#x201A;uenced the way you approach music? It has, not so much the orchestral side but deďŹ nitely the operatic side of things, the large themes and the dynamics of music. I am inďŹ&#x201A;uenced by that stuff and challenged by how to morph the ideas I get into my own style of music. I did mix a lot of opera and you could get carried away with a Puccini piece and the next day when in front of the computer you try and get that idea out with a sample or maybe some strings or something similar. So it did inďŹ&#x201A;uence

me, especially by honing my technical skills. When Inna Styles (their second album) came out I thought, wow these guys are ahead of their time, comparable perhaps only to some UK stuff that was around. Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve always compared ourselves internationally. Australia now more than ever is heading down the rock and roll path, Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve never been that into it, Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m not knocking it but Aussies do have an afďŹ nity with guitar based bands. I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t listen to a lot of mainstream music in Australia, thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a lot of good electronic stuff coming out but it doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t get the exposure it deserves. Thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a ďŹ nite amount of ears to listen to electronica. When Inna Styles came out

SEVEN GIVE AWAY

radio stations were more interested in looking at that kind of music. Now itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s bands like Wolfmother and jet that dominate the musical landscape. There arenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t many outlets in Australia for electronic music, it seems that Triple J can make or break an emerging artist. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s true, thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s none really, FBI in Sydney is starting to take off but compared to the national exposure triple j can give, there is nothing like it. Some of your songs give a political angle, I enjoy songs that have a bit of depth too them, some intelligence and awareness of the political landscape. Do you think music is a good medium to put across new ideas and political views? Yes I do, it works very well. Political motifs in music are as old as music itself. A lot of those things are largely due to the songwriter, Linda writes a lot of the stuff and she is politically minded. One of our ďŹ rst radio hits was called local MP and that is a song about politicians being heartless motherfuckers. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s always been a popular motif within the band and also with our reggae orientation, Marley and Tosh have been inďŹ&#x201A;uences. We release stuff on our own label so we donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have a major record label breathing down our necks afraid weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll offend someone. You see what happened to the Dixie Chicks, they stood up and dissed Bush and the backlash was huge, now theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re regarded by some as heroes. I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t know why anyone would think Bush was anything more than an idiot. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m not a fan of John Howard but he won some unwinnable elections, I wouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t put anything past him. I wouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t be surprised if the Liberal party were in Indonesia organising some boat people to come over before the next election. We can only wait and see. Wicked Beat Sound System play at the Great Northern on Saturday.

ARIES: With so much happening on planet Aries it would be easy to take relationships for granted â&#x20AC;&#x201C; but much smarter to be attentive to peopleâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s moods, needs and feelings. Third decanate Aries favours team play and consulting others for balanced decision-making. TAURUS: If you ďŹ nd yourself being stubborn and singleminded, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s time to rewrite the rules â&#x20AC;&#x201C; particularly your own. And if the thrill of competition or acquisition stimulates a gambling mood â&#x20AC;&#x201C; well, youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re sensible and grounded enough to take a calculated risk. GEMINI: If youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re feeling hot to embark on a stimulating new enterprise, the stars are on your side. A new project could be started this week with every conďŹ dence of success, even though you may have to overcome a bit of initial resistanceâ&#x20AC;Ś CANCER: Donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t cross them, donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t boss them, donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t diss â&#x20AC;&#x2122;em, just kiss â&#x20AC;&#x2122;emâ&#x20AC;Ś It need only be an air smooch, but this weekâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s tempestuous types are suckers for love and appreciation, so all you need do is the Cancerian love thang â&#x20AC;&#x201C; you do remember what that is, doncha? LEO: Though extremely Leofriendly, this is deďŹ nitely a week to stay a cool Majesty and away from anything that makes you tense or distracted. Being the attraction magnet you are, youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll have to switch off the electronix to achieve any kind of serene brain space. VIRGO: This weekâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s citizens will try to run your life â&#x20AC;&#x201C; howâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s that for a turnaround? But they mean well and so what if they lack a bit of ďŹ nesse? Perhaps their style crimes are only failings in your eyes, and nobody else gives a toss. Appreciate their good hearts.

LIBRA: Energyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s shooting everywhere like ďŹ reworks right now, giving even ordinary things an exciting dazzle. This weekâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s vivid, vibrant and outrageous â&#x20AC;&#x201C; also self-centred, petulant and possessive. The trick of course is to enjoy the best and ignore the rest. SCORPIO: Use opinions that donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t gel with yours as opportunities to look through a different view ďŹ nder this week and youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re likely to pick up some extremely useful insights. Youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll ďŹ nd people unexpectedly candid, surprisingly informative and extremely revealingâ&#x20AC;Ś SAGITTARIUS: Donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t talk about it â&#x20AC;&#x201C; do it. Organise your time and energy constructively and this could be one of the most successful weeks in the Sagittarian year. And be advised that a non-inďŹ&#x201A;ammatory attitude will generate immediate and tangible beneďŹ ts. CAPRICORN: According to Einstein: To raise new questions, new possibilities â&#x20AC;&#x201C; to regard old problems from a new angle requires creative imagination. Reconsider ideas this week you initially dismissed as ditzy â&#x20AC;&#x201C; could there be something there you could useâ&#x20AC;Ś? AQUARIUS: No matter what the world thinks, whether others accept it or not, youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll do your own strong willed, unconventional, individual thing this week. Just be very sure to do it sweetly rather than in any way abrasively where others are concerned. PISCES: Youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll have to really suss out peopleâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s motives this week because they wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t be obvious â&#x20AC;&#x201C; even to those operating them. Use your common sense, follow your natural instincts and donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t take anyoneâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s opinions personally â&#x20AC;&#x201C; listen to the friends who respect and love you.

300 This is not as far from the truth as you might expect. It follows reasonably closely the incident that Herodotus records when, in 480 BC, King Xerxesâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Persians descended upon the Peloponnese. Under King Leonidas, a band of Spartans stood in their way at a narrow gorge. Herodotus was given to ďŹ&#x201A;ights of fancy himself, but he couldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t hold a candle to director Zack Snyder, whose graphic version of events is as spectacularly lurid as any airhead adolescent could hope for. The boring scenes, when people are talking, are minimised and basically itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s all about the battle. The Greeks are a tough lot, but when they see the size of the Persian mob they realize they are up against it â&#x20AC;&#x201C; there are about ďŹ ve million of them! Fortunately, the overdressed barbarians arenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t worth a pinch of poop as ďŹ ghters and Leonidas and his boys scythe through them at twenty to the dozen. My favourite bit was when the great Spartan decapitated the giant â&#x20AC;&#x201C; the meanest, ugliest mother you have ever seen â&#x20AC;&#x201C; with one fabulous swish of his sword. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s juicy slaughtera-go-go as, in ultra slo mo, guts are speared, throats cut and eyes gouged out.

LETTERS FROM IWO JIMA

I wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t counting, but the world record for severed limbs would have been smashed well before the halfway point. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s also very loud, the blokes rarely able to communicate without yelling and in Leonidasâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s case I am surprised he wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t heard above the bands at the big pop concert down the road. What was more disconcerting, though, was his Scottish accent â&#x20AC;&#x201C; he sounded like heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d just got off the train from Dumfries. And when it comes to that, Australiaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s David Wenhamâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s skinny voice, instead of sounding like that of the wise survivor, gives the narration a not exactly appropriate Enid Blyton feel. Poor Wenham also looks ridiculous running around in leather undies â&#x20AC;&#x201C; I kept seeing Diver Dan in drag. In fact, the Greeks in general, in what is not so much a gore as a pecs and abs fest, resemble a bunch of escapees from an Oxford Street bondage bar. It all adds to the homo erotic, high camp heroics that teenage lads and Bra Boy types love so much. At the close of play, the crowd in the cinema all checked their text messages as the credits rolled and I felt lucky to get out of there alive â&#x20AC;&#x201C; luckier still to be getting home in time for the much more stimulating â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;My Name Is Earl.â&#x20AC;&#x2122; John Campbell

Clint Eastwood is a gravelly voiced, grey haired old bloke who has been making movies forever. Unfortunately, most punters associate his name with retribution, rough justice and cowboy ďŹ&#x201A;icks. Plenty of them were good, too, but his later work as a director is of a quality that few ďŹ lmmakers achieve. He is not much interested in tricks and he does not necessarily say anything radically different in his movies, he just seems to be able to make his point more emphatically, focused as the stories (regular writer Paul Haggis is again involved) always are on the simple and abiding truths that trouble and enlighten, that make devils and angels of us all. This is the partner to last

which the tempest rages. Ken Watanabe is great as the stoic commander who understands the folly of it all and with Kazunari Ninomiya as the hapless private, Saigo, the pair give the ďŹ lm its emotional core. The ďŹ&#x201A;ashback vignettes put the lives of the soldiers into context, making the ending doubly effective and poignant. John Campbell

BRA BOYS Bra Boys represents further evidence of a newly emerging style of Australian movie making. Something akin to what punk and grunge were to pop music of the 1990â&#x20AC;&#x2122;s. This documentary focuses on surfers in Sydneyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Maroubra beach suburb, rather than on any reference to intimate female apparel. The structure of

Capt. â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Docâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; Daneeka, M.D.: Thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a catch. Capt. Yossarian: A catch? Capt. â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Docâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; Daneeka, M.D.: Sure, catch-22. Anyone who wants to get out of combat isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t really crazy, so I canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t ground them. Capt. Yossarian: Okay, let me see if I got this straight. In order to be grounded Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve got to be crazy, and I must be crazy to keep ďŹ&#x201A;ying missions. But, if I ask to be grounded that means Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m not crazy anymore, and I have to keep ďŹ&#x201A;ying. Catch 22 (1970)

yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s moving â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Flags of Our Fathers,â&#x20AC;&#x2122; and this time we see the World War II battle for the island of Iwo Jima from the Japanese side. Like the 300 Spartans, they know that they are ďŹ ghting for a lost cause, but they are defending the homeland from invasion, Iwo Jima being the Americansâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; ďŹ rst landing on Japanese soil. Their duty is unquestioned â&#x20AC;&#x201C; except by some who do not want to die. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the human factor. With bleached colour, almost to the point that it is monochromatic, and a spare soundtrack (son Kyleâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s theme is hauntingly beautiful), Eastwood looks closely at that sense of honour, â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;bushido,â&#x20AC;&#x2122; that determines the behaviour of so many men. He praises it for its dignity and courage at the very same time that he is stripping it bare and exposing its futility.

Bra Boys is unpredictable and marvellous to behold. It has obvious forerunners in that genre of surďŹ ng ďŹ lms that started with Endless Summer back in the 1960â&#x20AC;&#x2122;s. The Bra Boys were natural candidates for roles in the evolution of that genre into grand spectacles of surfers being towed into lethally dangerous waves the size of waterfalls. But Bra Boys is also a documentary on a prevention of a miscarriage of justice by the police and legal system. Its style is terse and economical with words, but it touches on the background to big news events that the media did not provide. The Bra Boys sudden appearance as peace makers after the internationally documented 2005 Cronulla race riots is given some passing explanation. The ďŹ lm is engaging, honest, low brow and yet wise and disarming in a laid back, rough diamond sort of way.. Lounge Cinema &5,,9!)2 #/.$)4)/.%$ %6%297%$.%3$!9!,,3%!43 !,,3%33)/.3/.,9

Bangalow

Feltmallard, the chauffeur and a keen amateur mechanic, had been loitering in one of the clubhouse garages of an evening. From it came an odd assortment of noises varying from the whine of a power drill to the sound of ballpeen hammer on metal. We had had to have the valets insulate the walls of the building with Armani mattresses acquired from a Double Bay deceased estate so we could hallucinate in our ďŹ&#x201A;oat tanks in perfect silence.

We took a ballot and Abbotsleigh was selected as the test pilot, bribed into acquiescence by the promise of a night with Miss Trixie Shovelbliss of Gold Coast nightclub fame. The naked pilot inserted, Feltmallard had the honour of shoving Eros into motion. By the time Abbotsleigh hit the 60 zone, the LCD counter by the roadside was reading 83. To the outside observer his trip was relatively uneventful, apart from bouncing off the wire restrainers once or twice and swerving to avoid a duck. Once the journey had ended, to the cheering of hitchhikers stranded on the overpass, we carefully extricated Abbotsleigh from the vehicle. Digbyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s hypothesis had proven correct: our pilot was the consistency and colour of oiled blanched asparagus, and his eyes were ďŹ lled with transcendental visions of delight. We wrapped him in lavender-scented cheesecloth and left him in the inďŹ rmary, where he took a week to recover with the assistance of Nurseâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s tender ministrations. We resolved to use Eros only on important ritual occasions and rewarded Feltmallard with a small island in the Caribbean.

â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;But is it safe?â&#x20AC;&#x2122; asked Postmarker. â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Nothing is safe,â&#x20AC;&#x2122; replied Digby. â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Your toaster could kill you.â&#x20AC;&#x2122;

Digby was as good as his word. He had bribed the RTA to close off the St Helena hill and divert the highway trafďŹ c through Byron Bay, which seemed to make little difference to the townâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s ambience. We assembled at the top of the hill, looking down on the magniďŹ cent view which immediately engenders a sense of homecoming in the ardent Shire resident. A grease-streaked Feltmallard beamed proudly at his creation, which resembled a bronze lipstick container on wire-spoked rubber wheels, and which Digby had christened Eros. A ďŹ ligreed silver dolphin ďŹ n protruded for effect from behind the driverâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s seat. â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;There is no motor,â&#x20AC;&#x2122; explained Digby, â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;which is why we need this hill. Gravity drives not only the wheels but the various devices which make Eros special and exhilarating. A system of ďŹ&#x201A;ywheels and levers ensures the correct insertion of the cranial and oriďŹ cial probes, along with the application of the body-length rubber massage mallets. A further arrangement of hydraulic gears ensures both the vehicle and the driver are regularly lubricated with canola oil. A parachute will open when it hits the tripwire near the Myocum overpass.â&#x20AC;&#x2122;

â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;What the deuce is that fellow doing in there?â&#x20AC;&#x2122; asked Bosworth of Sanders the butler one evening as we settled with our snifters of brandy in the Hunter S Thompson Memorial Quoits Room. â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Sounds like heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s building one of Heath Robinsonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s infernal contraptions.â&#x20AC;&#x2122; â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;I can explain all,â&#x20AC;&#x2122; said Tosser Digby. He had spent most of the day devising cunning rope traps in the trufďŹ&#x201A;e paddock for a particularly persistent Dalmatian which so far had escaped the bullet. â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;One afternoon, under the inďŹ&#x201A;uence of a hashish cheroot, I was pondering the phrase â&#x20AC;&#x153;transports of delightâ&#x20AC;?. Of course it refers to transports of a sensual or metaphysical nature but I wondered if one could construct a vehicle which would have the same effect. More so than a Bugatti, that is. And thanks to Feltmallardâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s good ofďŹ ces, working most devotedly from my highly detailed plans, said transport will be ready to try out tomorrow.â&#x20AC;&#x2122;

NOT SHY OF COCONUT Victoria Cosford It is always exciting to discover something whose existence you had never previously suspected â&#x20AC;&#x201C; and so it was when a friend showed me the packet of coconut ďŹ&#x201A;our she had found at Red Ginger in Byron Bay. Coconut ďŹ&#x201A;our! Alarmingly expensive, it still had to be purchased and tried out. Leslie, as she was serving me, was telling me that she had used it to lightly ďŹ&#x201A;our squid before quickly pan-frying them and that there had been a delicately nutty ďŹ&#x201A;avour to the ďŹ nished dish. I, of course, was only thinking of cakes â&#x20AC;&#x201C; and speciďŹ cally of pancakes. And so the following Sunday I whipped up a batch in which I substituted the coconut ďŹ&#x201A;our for the plain. The result? My partner pronounced them â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;mealyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; and to be sure their texture was grittier than the standard pancake one; the rest of us thought they were lovely, especially with fresh lime juice squeezed over the top. Coconut ďŹ&#x201A;our is yet another manifestation of the uses to which one tree may be put. The actual nut is the fruit of a member of the palm family, a species which grows up to 30 metres tall â&#x20AC;&#x201C; and it consists of a hairy outer husk called a coir, an inner â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;stoneâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; called the endocarp to which the ďŹ&#x201A;eshy white meat adheres, and a hollow inner space composed of air and water. Almost every single part of the coconut palm has some human use: the fruit provides milk, meat, sugar and oil; the coir is used in ropes and mats; the fronds are used for thatching houses and weaving baskets; the sticks for satays. Its oil is turned into cosmetics, candles and soap; the cavity itself may be used as a vessel; the grated fruit when mixed with water or milk may be turned into coconut milk, while the water itself is considered a refreshing beverage. Among the many other uses I found, my favourite was the monkey trap, made by piercing a hole in the coconut, inserting a banana and then securing the lot to a tree. What every home needs! Every home does deďŹ nitely beneďŹ t from a supply of some form of coconut. In both sweet and savoury dishes it provides a subtle dimension compatible with a wide range of other ingredients. Its relatively high levels of energy and fat render it preferable to employ with restraint â&#x20AC;&#x201C; by which I mean perhaps do not consume the entire tray of coconut ice when two wedges will do. Much of Asian, Indian and African food is enriched and enhanced by coconut milk â&#x20AC;&#x201C; think of curries, basmati rice simmered in coconut milk, sticky rice with coconut, rotis, many Thai desserts, soups and sauces. You can easily make your own coconut milk by processing grated coconut with hot water or milk, thereby extracting the oil and aromatic compounds. Leave it to set in the refrigerator and what rises to the top is your very own coconut cream. The simplest soup may be made by simmering a blend of coconut milk and water to which you have added a handful of bruised lemongrass stalks for perfume : bring that to the boil then toss in cubed chicken ďŹ llets, fresh red chillies, a little grated fresh ginger, some shredded kafďŹ r lime leaves and a good squeeze of lime juice. Simmer till the chicken is tender and serve strewn with fresh coriander leaves. Make a spicy pumpkin soup â&#x20AC;&#x201C; pureed pumpkin, coconut milk, shrimp paste and a little chilli thinned out with water and simmered to completion â&#x20AC;&#x201C; then pour over citrus-marinated sea scallops. The Malay classic Beef Rendang owes its luscious creamy richness to the nearly-two hours the spiced garlicky bite-sized chunks of beef simmer in their broth of lemon-fragrant coconut milk. As for sweets â&#x20AC;&#x201C; where to begin! And macaroons leap to mind: that cross between a cake and a biscuit, those little golden peaks of outside crunch and inside chewiness. Set your oven at a low 160oC while you whisk together six eggwhites with 2 1/2 cups of caster sugar, a dash of vanilla essence and a drizzle of honey in a large bowl set over a pan of simmering water. Whisk until the contents become creamy and thick and a little warm, then topple in 500 grams of shredded coconut and 115 grams of sifted plain ďŹ&#x201A;our. Place dollops of the sticky mixture on to a greased baking tray and bake till golden.

Sports Roundup with John Campbell

Tumble turn for an idol and his devotees John Campbell Lordy! Who would have thunk it? Well might Alice, dazed and confused, have asked that question in the trippy world of Wonderland. But in the chlorinated water of an Australian Olympic pool? Our people on the juice? I mean, we just donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t do that sort of thing, do we? Not on your Nellie. Especially the elegantly unshaven Ian Thorpe. I, for one, do not believe for a minute that the Thorpedo has knowingly taken any performance enhancing substance. He, more than any other sportsman of our time, comes across as the real deal, a bloke blessed by nature with the gifts of being able to swim like a dolphin and a work ethic that enabled him to make the most of it. But now there is the doubt. I canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t share the general hysteria that surrounds doping in sport. If fewer than half of all athletes competing at the highest levels were not improving their times by recourse to motherâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s little helper in the pillbox, especially now that masking agents are one step ahead of the game, I would be astounded. The more interesting aspect of the charge laid against Thorpe by the prestigious sports magazine Lâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;Equipe (merde alors, was Dubya right about those underhanded Froggies?) is the reaction here in Oz. So much has he endeared him-

self to us that we simply will not have a bar of any scuttlebutt that might sully his reputation. Unfortunately, you also get the impression that the great unwashed would be more concerned with the prospect of forfeiting the gold medals than with the character assassination of their champion. It was a different scenario with S K Warne. Loved for his larrikinism rather than his cleanskin behaviour, he could be relied upon to do the wrong thing. When he shunted the blame onto his Mum for giving him the gear that ruled him out of the 2003 World Cup we all

laughed. â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s our Warnie,â&#x20AC;&#x2122; was the general attitude. Towards others we are less forgiving. The Chinese in particular have got us terribly distraught about the progress that theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re making in their training techniques. How did they get so big? we demand to know, sure in our hearts that they must be cheating. And just this week, German cycling star Jan Ulrich has been identiďŹ ed as a client of Spanish doctor Eufemiano Fuentes, the master doper in European sport, whilst rumours persist that Lance Armstrongâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s seven Tour de France victories were not kosher. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s almost as though

we need foreigners to be seen to be crooked in order to burnish our little Aussie battler self regard. So letâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not throw stones or, in a nation obsessed with sporting glory, stow thrones. If Thorpe is guilty it will shatter the image of boy next door perfection created of him by a doting media. The souring of all that we have greedily been spoon fed would be unprecedented almost. In the mundane world of drug running, it appears that the same thing may have happened with Chappelle Corby. Arrested in Indonesia with a bagful of dope, her

word was all we needed to come to the conclusion that the Indonesian judicial system was completely corrupt and inept. Chappelle appealed to us with a plaintiff cry; â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;I didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t put the marijuana there and I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t know who did.â&#x20AC;&#x2122; No court in Australia would acquit somebody with such a threadbare, insupportable defence. But everyone agreed, the other mob were wrong for doing what we would have done - ďŹ nding her guilty. â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Bring Chappelle homeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; somebody painted on a wall in Byron. Campaigns to free her were organized across the country. It became a political issue. Suddenly none of us are so sure anymore. Her brother was busted and a close friend of sister Mercedes claims that she had once been asked to be a courier too. Nobody likes to be duped, least of all a public so willing to see the halos that the press and TV place over chosen individualsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; heads. Thorpeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s surprise retirement from swimming was, surely, because heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d had enough. But it doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t look good, and nor does his â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;somebodyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s out to get meâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; public statements. ConďŹ dentiality may have been breached with the release of the ďŹ ndings that have cracked the shiny façade of our favourite, but that is irrelevant. The truth or otherwise of the allegation is all that matters.

Sports Roundup with John Campbell

Gorty aims his racquet for Texas sive training, inluding participation in six tournaments. This is an opportunity that is far too good to miss, and Stephen is hoping that he may be able to raise the money required to cover the remaining cost of the trip â&#x20AC;&#x201C; about $10,000. Stephen is being supported in his endeavours by Mullumbimby Tennis Club, with which he has played since childhood; the club will be holding a fundraiser later this year. In addition, a special account has been set up for the trip and anyone who is interested in supporting this talented youngster can call Margaret on 6684 1526.

Alex McAuley Stephen Gort is a ďŹ ne example of home grown talent, proving to be an exceptional tennis player from a very early age. Gorty will turn 18 later this year and is working hard to fulďŹ l his dreams and aspirations of his lifetime. His resume is impressive: he started competing at just eight years old; has represented the North Coast since he was 10 when he gained number one ranking in the region, a position he has held ever since; has won Byron

The list goes on; itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s exhausting just reading it. Gortyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s latest goal is perhaps the most exciting to date: after meeting with Clint Newcombe â&#x20AC;&#x201C; yes, that would be Johnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s son â&#x20AC;&#x201C; and having â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;a hitâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; with him, Clint was so impressed with Stephenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s talent that he has offered him a half scholarship to attend the Newcombe Tennis Ranch in Texas for three months inten-

The school vice-captain, was second in his heat, and narrowly missed State selection when he placed ďŹ fth in the 50m freestyle ďŹ nal, with a time of 35.64.

Keiren Perrow wins a third Easter Classic Byron Bay local Keiren Perrow claimed his third Easter Classic crown at Broken Head on the weekend. In an event dominated by Byron and Ballina entrants, Perrow won after Jarrad Sullivanâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s last minute ride fell just short of overhauling his lead. One to two metre testing conditions made it a battle of strength and astute wave selection, and with a flurry of late scoring, the result was in doubt until the final siren. Lennox Heads surfer James Wood placed 3rd, with another of Byronâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s best, Luke Stickley ďŹ nishing 4th after leading for most of the twenty-ďŹ ve minute ďŹ nal. After the Bayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Carly Smith took out the Womenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s event on Friday, three days of competition climaxed with the menâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s ďŹ nal on Sunday along with those of the seven other divisions. (See Sports Results). From the ďŹ&#x201A;eas through to the legends, the quality of surďŹ ng was of an exceptional standard, despite the inclement weather conditions. The thirty-second Easter Classic, held in memory of Byron Bay Boardridersâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; President Ben King, is one of the most sought after titles in Australian surďŹ ng, and all competitors and spectators once again Luke Hitchings on his way to taking out the Menâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Seniors.

Congratulations to the Green & Clean Team which is celebrating its tenth anniversary this Sunday April 15 â&#x20AC;&#x201C; a remarkable history of cleaning up and dune care. You can join them from 9am at Clarkes Beach for dune care and celebration. QQQQ Hereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s an unusual one, which appealed to our columnist Horatio Bitemark: The Byron Bay & Districts Branch of the Australian Decorative & Fine Arts Society (ADFAS) will be addressed by Silvia Sagona on the topic of â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Absinthe â&#x20AC;&#x201C; From Green Fairy to Green Hydra, The Cocaine of the 19th Centuryâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;. Silvia is writing a book investigating how the literary and visual images of the 19th century Parisienne were moulded by popular pseudo-medical

theories. Absinthe began its rise to infamy when it ďŹ rst entered France in the 1830s from Algeria. It was completely banned in 1915. The talk is at at the Bangalow A&I Hall on Monday April 16 at 7.30pm. Guests are welcome to attend for a $15 entrance fee. Supper with wine will be available after the lecture. Why not with absinthe? we thought. QQQQ To help celebrate the centenary of Scouting, Scouts Australia has launched a website aimed at reuniting past friendships among the estimated two million current and former Australian Scouts. If you were one of those who donned the toggle and rubbed two sticks together, see if you can ďŹ nd old friends at www.scoutsreunited.com.au â&#x20AC;&#x201C; the serv-

paign workers as Brian Geraghty and Joshua Jackson. They are in fact Geraghty and Shia LaBeouf. QQQQ With dollar signs in their eyes 76% of Australians would like to do additional paid work on top of their primary job, according to a survey conducted by career building and networking site www. Linkme.com.au. While almost one in four (23%) Australians are already moonlighting, it seems an overwhelming majority would like to have the extra padding in their pocket. In a survey of over 670 people, 57% said the greatest motivation to ďŹ nd additional work is because their primary employment does not pay enough. Other reasons for considering a second job include getting extra experience to open up more career choices (19%) and because they enjoy it (13%).
