Australia’s ‘Sundance’ flickers into action Jann Gilbert The third annual Byron Bay Film Festival got under way at the Community Centre on Friday night, and played host to a cast and crew of hundreds at the opening night party and screenings. Directors of the world premiere, opening-night offerings were onhand to chat to festival goers as was AFI Best Actor, Stephen Curry, who stars in You better watch out. Mark Forstmann and producer Tamara Popper from Monkey Puzzle say they are ‘very excited and thrilled that Byron has taken us in’. Their feature film is made entirely independently of government assistance yet, to their credit, they still managed a development phase. Adopting a Mike Leigh method of filmmaking, they spent eight weeks workshopping the script with actors, and then developed it over the following 12 months. ‘It’s a Byron-type film, it’s a young person’s film, it’s a bit rootsy,’ says Mark. ‘We tossed up, you know, should we premiere it in Sydney or somewhere and we thought, no, let’s go for the Cape. So here we are.’ Ironically enough, one of the film’s investors lives in Suffolk Park, and the independent nature of the festival was a real drawcard. ‘It’s independent, it’s very grass roots. We see this as like America’s

Sundance,’ says Tamara. ‘It’s the sort of place where filmmakers will want to come. The directors of the festival have a beautiful optimism and they can build on that to make this Australia’s Sundance.’ The festival runs until March 8 with session prices from $5 to $12 and lots of other special ticket offers. Phone 6685 6807 for information and bookings and see the

program online at www.bbff.com. au. The closing night event on March 8 features the Australian premiere of Laya Project. The project’s musicians are the people of coastal and surrounding communities in the 2004 tsunamiaffected regions of Sri Lanka, Thailand, Indonesia, Maldives, Myanmar and India.

Against a rich visual tapestry regional folk music traditions were recorded, mixed and enhanced, creating a musical journey crossing borders, while preserving the music of the people. The stories of survival and loss create a personal and collective tribute to the resilience of the human spirit. Filmmaker Yotam Agam will be in attendance.

Miracle tales of survival marred by tragedy Jann Gilbert The search for 39-year-old skipper Charlie Picton, missing since his trawler sank off the coast of Byron Bay, was called off by police last Thursday night. In making the decision police said they believed it was unlikely that Mr Picton was still alive. Two other men aboard the boat when it sank, Michael Williams, 39, who swam for over ten hours to reach the shore to raise the alarm and John Jarret, 41, who was rescued after surviving 30 hours in the water,

have been recovering in hospital. Neither have plans to return to sea. Superintendent Mark Hutchings from Marine Area Command, NSW Police, who coordinated the search, said he believed police, emergency and volunteer services had done everything possible to find Mr Picton. ‘Once locating the second fisherman and rescuing him we concentrated our efforts around where debris was found, using five aircraft and four rescue craft in the search,’ said Supt Hutchings.

Supt Hutchings praised the ‘incredible efforts’ of all the agencies involved in the search including local volunteer rescue vessels from the North Coast (who rated a special mention), Australian Search and Rescue, the Westpac Lifesaver helicopter, and local area command and marine police resources. ‘They have my sincere thanks for all their efforts,’ said Supt Hutchings. ‘It’s great to be part of what can only be considered a fantastic team whose sole motivation was to locate these people.

health and beauty International Women’s Day celebrates 100 years of action Jann Gilbert International Women’s Day (IWD) originates from the protest action of women garment makers in New York in 1908, who demonstrated to demand better working conditions. They worked in appalling conditions, earned half of men’s wages, died prematurely from poor health and didn’t have the right to vote. To mark a centenary of action, the theme for this year’s IWD on Saturday 8 March is ‘100 years of active women in paid and unpaid work’. The theme acknowledges the enormous contribution of countless women in improving workplaces and working conditions as well as the millions of hours of volunteer or unpaid work done by women each year. As part of the celebrations the Women’s Resource Centre (WRC) and Northern Rivers Community Legal Centre (NRCLC) are offering a program of events at the Moller Pavilion, Bangalow Showgrounds. The program includes workshops, activities for children, guest speakers, lunch, and evening entertainment featuring a debate, a dinner and a women’s dance.The debate topic, ‘Nothing much has changed for women in 100 years’, promises to promote some lively discussion between panel members, who range from a union organiser to a women’s refuge worker. The WRC and the NRCLC also hope to raise awareness of the need for adequate emergency accommodation and affordable housing so that women leaving abusive relationships are not forced to return simply because they have nowhere else to go. For all enquiries about IWD activities contact Kassa Bird at the WRC on 6684 4299 or Angel Pollard from the NRCLC on 6621 1000.

‘And the courage of the gentleman that swam ashore, the miraculous bravery of that man, the stamina, the determination, is beyond belief. Without him, we may not have located the second gentleman or even the area. Being unable to locate Mr Picton is an absolute tragedy. Our hearts go out to his family and we offer our condolences.’ Mr Picton’s family thanked emergency service crews for their efforts and praised the bravery of his deckhands. Q Comment, page 10

This year audiences in the Northern Rivers should prepare themselves for a very different Seniors Week. If you are expecting some sweet little Bingo ladies humming along to morning melodies then you are in for a big surprise. Mandy Nolan, director of The Big Joke Comedy Festival, has taught 12 seniors from Ocean Shores to Lismore the gentle art of standup comedy. The men and women, who range in age from 63 to 80, have drawn on their life experiences, their wisdom, their mistakes, their struggles and their triumphs to create dynamic and engaging routines. Subject matter ranges from the positive aspects of a prosthetic leg, taming wild walking frames, the tyranny of ďŹ tness instructors, baking bread to being single and seeking a good warm cuddle. The Shooting From My Hip Replacement crew had their first performance at The Big Joke Comedy Festival a few weeks ago to an appreciative audience which was amazed at what this courageous bunch of novice performers had achieved in just a few days. The project strongly echoes the Seniors Week theme of Live Life.

According to Mandy Nolan, the most important part of The Shooting From The Hip Replacement is its emphasis on story. ‘Standup comedy teaches people to value their own experiences and draw on their personal story for inspiration. Older people in our community just have so much wisdom and humour to share with us, it’s important to take the time to listen. ‘It’s amazing to hear an older person talk about things like the need for human contact and being

lonely, or their disenchantment with ďŹ tness regimes, because it reminds us that regardless of age, our human experience is shared. Comedy is great for connecting with other people!’ Shooting From The Hip Replacement is MCd by Mandy Nolan and will be performed at the Byron Bay Services Club on Monday April 7 at 7pm for $5. Tickets are available at the club or bookings can be made on 6685 6878. The Lismore performance is scheduled for 11am on Wednesday April 9 at City

Hall. Entry is $2 and bookings can be made to 6622 0300. A morning tea will be provided from 10am. For any enquiries please phone Mandy Nolan on 6684 3443. The Shooting From the Hip Replacement Senior’s Week Project has been funded through DADHC and jointly funded by Lismore and Byron Council. NORPA has provided assistance as the auspice body for the funding and The Big Joke Comedy Festival has facilitated the training and the promotion.

Council bans kite surfing at Main Beach Byron Shire Council last week voted 7-0 on a notice of motion from Mayor Jan Barham to prohibit kite surďŹ ng at Byron Bay from The Pass to the swimming pool until it has a report on the suitability of the activity on public beaches and sought further submissions.

The interim ban follows on community concerns after a number of accidents and close calls involving kite surfers and swimmers. Cr Barham said concerns about the dangers of kite surďŹ ng had been raised over a number of years. ‘It’s important we gives this some consideration as there

have been accidents.’ During public access Wendy Boyd of the Stingray Ocean Swimmers – a local club which has up to 80 members on swims from The Pass to Main Beach – advised Councillors of ‘frequent incidents’ of swimmers being hit by a kite surďŹ ng board or wire.

Ms Boyd called for an ‘immediate no-go zone’ at populated beaches. The report to Council will consider public safety protocols on kite surfing from government agencies and other councils. Ms Boyd told Councillors that in Hawaii kite surfing areas were marked out with buoys.

Further delays on YAC repair ByronYouth Service director Paul Spooner has lamented further delay in the refurbishment of the Youth Activities Centre at Byron Bay so it can achieve a Place of Public Enter tainment (POPE) licence. He told Councillors last Thursday that a staff report which set the opening of the YAC as an entertainment venue on November 30 this year meant ‘the facility will not have been opened for entertainment for nearly two years and it will have been nearly two and a half years since Council first allocated funding for it to be repaired. ‘I believe this is an unacceptable situation for the young people of our community. As the only dedicated youth entertainment facility in the Shire it has not received the priority it deserves.’ Mr Spooner also called on Council to ‘make a commitment to have the Byron Youth Activity Centre reopened prior to the end of the current term of Council (September 2008)’. He also asked for the Byron Youth Activities Centre Group established by Council in 2006 to’provide advice on

Tahlia Ward, the young woman who organised the recent Byron Bay pool party for youth and who has been

involved in YAC activities, told Councillors it was important for Byron Bay youth to have a drug and alcohol free venue. ‘Venues cost a lot of money to hire – this is really needed.’ Councillors subsequently voted to ‘receive a report at the 27 March 2008 Ordinary Meeting to provide opportunities to stage and fast track the YAC facility renovations and to clarify the status of the current

leased/licensed area’. The Byron Youth Activities Centre Group includes Crs Barham, Lazarus, and Mangleson, building tenants Byron Youth Service, The Uncle Project, Council YAC Coordinator, Byron Community Campus User representative, young people community representatives, business group Byron United, and the Byron Liquor Accord.

Council searches for dog home Byron Shire Council is assisting the local group Companion Animals Welfare Incorporated (CAWI) in its search for land for an animal shelter. Council resolved last week to ‘note that the proposed site for the dog shelter at the front of Tyagarah Airfield is considered to be unsuitable’ and is now receiving a report on the suitability of a parcel of land owned by the RTA. CAWI founder Margaret Brown addressed Councillors during public access at last Thursday’s meeting. She said the operation of a dog shelter would enable the group, which has been saving animals since 2004, to apply for tax-deductible gift status. Ms Brown said Council would benefit from the construction of a dog shelter ‘by the saving in time and costs of Rangers, who at present relocate dogs after the mandatory seven days to neighbouring shire shelters that are already overburdened with unwanted dogs. We will also be assisting with the education of the public on responsible animal ownership.’ According to Ms Brown, the land for the dog shelter needs to be at least three hectares in size, and would house at least 20 kennels, ten

nominal rent or by donating the land,’ Ms Brown said. In February 2005 CAWI opened an op shop at Brunswick Heads which has proved a successful fundraiser for

Story & photo Eve Jeffery Pancake Day to pancake make-up, Mardi Gras (from the French ‘fat Tuesday’), has morphed from a religious festival into the expression of gay pride worldwide. Traditionally Mardi Gras was the final day of Carnival, the three day period preceding the beginning of Lent and immediately before Ash Wednesday, but today most people would associate Mardi Gras with a spectrum of colours, the rainbow flag the symbol of diversity and pride for gays and lesbians everywhere. As Sydney warmed up for the 30th birthday of the Mardi Gras on Saturday night, Brunswick Heads girls K T Hole and A Little Miss Jeevyas donned their lippy and stilettos and headed into town for a mini Mardi Gras of their own making. The two ladies along with a small band of playmates, set up a sound system outside Starfish in Mullumbimbi Street and over 100 spectators looked on in amazement as Miss Jeevyas mounted the back of a Holden ute and under the light from the zebra crossing, performed three dance numbers with impressive grace and style.

traffic stopper as a group of teenage boys parked their car in the middle of the street and sat on the bonnet for a better view, the crowd roaring appreciation after Miss Jeevyas completed her finale. The girls are hoping to turn the performance into an annual event, possibly incorporating a small parade into the festivities, but the idea is based on more than just fun and fashion. The two are wanting to highlight the plight of gay and lesbian youth in country areas. ‘Well firstly we don’t think that Sydney should have all the fun,’ said Miss K T, ‘but we’d like to bring some awareness to country areas. It is believed that one of the top causes for youth suicide in regional areas is the fear of family and community reaction to coming out. Every time I hear of a single person, single car accident I

wonder if the driver was gay.’ The two believe that it is a lot harder to be gay in the country as the general population is a little more conservative about the issues of sexuality. ‘There has always been gender diversity.Throughout history from Socrates and Einstein to Anthony Callea,’ said Miss Jeevyas, ‘The sad thing is that there are still 58 laws that discriminate against gays and lesbians. We are not going to stop being who we are. It’s time we all grew up and accepted everyone.’ The pair hope to use the annual mini Mardi Gras as a platform to help promote groups like ACON, which is a community organisation promoting the health and wellbeing of a diverse gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender community, and a leading agency in HIV/AIDS policy development, and

PFLAG (Parents and Friends of Lesbians and Gays), a worldwide voluntary organisation whose members have a common goal of keeping families together and to support and give information to families and friends of all gay people. ‘Heterosexuality is not necessarily the norm, it’s just more common,’ said Miss Jeevyas. ‘Parents have to love their kids enough to love them for who they are.’ ‘We would love to see an annual Bruns Mini Mardi Gras, it is a positive project for all members of the community and we need something like this to show support for the gay and lesbian youth in the area,’ said Miss K T. For more information about gay and lesbian support networks visit www. acon.org.au or www.pflagaustralia.org.au.

Cate shows character in workshop Strong, believable characters make us care about the story that’s being told. And convincing dialogue is the link that connects us, the reader, to those characters. Writer and poet Cate Kennedy will explore these elements of story in Character and Dialogue, a writing workshop to be held on Saturday March 8. This work-

shop will look at ways of inventing convincing characters, developing and getting to know these ‘invisible friends’ and bringing them to life on the page through dialogue, narrative voice and point of view. The following day, Sunday March 9, Cate will present a short story masterclass, Sting in the Tail. This masterclass

will offer a small group of experienced short story writers the chance to probe this challenging genre and discover what makes a short story fly. For bookings call Northern Rivers Writers’ Centre on 6685 5115 or email susie@nrwc.org.au. Workshop $55/$70, masterclass $70/$90.

Goonengerry rocks: art for soil’s sake Story & photo Lou Beaumont At the corner of Mafeking Road and Federal Road in Goonengerry stands evidence of community and council collaboration. A large scale rock installation was borne of the need to excavate the site to control erosion at what is the headwaters of Byrangery Creek. Goonengerry residents Patrick Morrisey, artist Suvira McDonald and neighbour of the site Basil Cameron, together with Byron Shire Council, recognised the need for an aesthetic treatment of the erosion problem. Patrick went to Suvira with an idea to approach the site artistically who came up with the concept of the boulder installation. Together they approached Byron Shire Council, which promptly came on board. No money has exchanged hands between involved parties. Indeed a fellow Goonengerry resident, Steve Marshall, donated the boulders from his own property and loaded them onto Council trucks with his excavator. Of the site Suvira McDonald said, ‘Being the headwater of Byrangery Creek, a tributary of the Richmond River, this is a significant and sensitive site. We are paying

Surrounding the rocks, the gully will be landscaped with plants appropriate to the region. Currently the area is covered with a large weed mat provided by Council and a ‘Sorry’ message laid down in rocks by the Goonengerry trio on Sorry Day.

Patrick Morrisey told The Echo, ‘We really want to thank Byron Shire Council’s engineering staff for all their help and cooperation, the equipment, the weed matting, and just their support all the way through.’ The success of the Goonengerry gully collaboration has inspired the residents to look into further aesthetic development of the intersection. Specifically, sights are set on a crest of land alongside the gully that was cre-

ated when existing property was dissected by the new road. The newly formed area has attracted attention among locals as a potential site for a park or other community area. Basil Cameron said, ‘Of course it would be subject to the landowner’s wishes, council support and other factors but it would be wonderful to see that patch of land become something special for everyone to use.’

The Northern Rivers Hang Gliding & Paragliding Club intends to celebrate International Womens Day in combination with the up and coming Relay For Life Cancer Council fund raising project by offering 12 local women a free day introduction to paragliding and hanggliding on Saturday March 8. The paragliding training will be provided by local school Poliglide and the hanggliding training by Byron Airwaves and Flight Zone. The instructors will be assisted by the female members of the Northern Rivers

Hang Gliding & Paragliding Club. ‘Our Club already boasts the best female to male ratio in Australia, including the youngest ever female pilot, 14 year old Angeline Polidano, the first and only female paramotor pilot Jan Smith and highly ranked pilot Sonja Hans,’ says the club’s press release. ‘Members of the Club have just returned from the Manilla (Tamworth) Xc Open, a three stage international competition where 26 countries were represented, with approximately 100 competitors. Our locals

brought home a record four prizes, including Jan Smith who took third place in the women’s category. ‘This training day offers women in the area the opportunity to meet other female pilots, to become familiar with the aircraft we fly, as well as hands on training that will enable you to get the feel of this amazing sport. To register for one of the 12 places call Jan Smith on 0410 314 673 or 6686 5271. ‘The Club has a team participating in the upcoming Relay for Life, Cancer Council fund raising event on the March 29. Cancer

has affected the lives of some of our members and their families and we would like to accept donations from all the participants in the training day to go towards our contribution. We wish to encourage other sporting organisations to register and attend the Relay for Life. We have designed some simple relay events for the evening that demonstrate our aircraft and offer basic skills for participants.’ For further information on the Relay for Life which is to be held at Mullumbimby Leagues Club contact Gill Lomath on 6684 6328.

Mayor responds to blast from BU Byron Shire Mayor Jan Barham has responded to an attck on Council by local business group Byron United. Last week the group issued a press release saying, ’Byron United is tired of excuses and wants to know when the Byron Shire Council is going to step up and get something in done in Byron Bay. ’It is now nearly three years since the [Lighthouse Road] walkway was washed away and we appear no closer to having it repaired than we did back then. Three bridges can get built across the Brunswick River but we can’t get a walkway fixed for the community to safely exercise on and to alleviate the traffic problems getting to and from Watego’s. ’Mayor Jan Barham leads a Council of inaction and negativity according to Byron United and they lack

the will to create the necessary infrastructure to meet the community’s needs.’ Byron United president Ed Ahern said ‘We are desperate for a bypass to improve traffic conditions, our public library is a disgrace, public toilets are sub-standard, we are screaming out for adequate and safe bike tracks, our parks and public spaces are unkempt and unsafe at night and the community’s calls for something to be done are being ignored.’ In response Cr Barham said in a press release, ‘It’s very easy to criticise any local government – there will always be a number of projects or works outstanding for longer than anyone would like and attempts to explain the realities are always labelled excuses. ‘It’s disappointing but not unexpected to see a pre-

election position by some business interests and that Byron United has chosen to be so negative toward Council. There has been ample explanation by Council regarding some of the issues raised, eg Lighthouse Road and the bypass being beyond Council control and requiring state government input, expenditure and approval. ‘It seems it’s easy to overlook significant achievements. Council has undertaken major works and expense in Byron Bay, eg roadworks, Lawson Street carpark, roundabouts, Railway Park upgrade, West Byron Sewerage Treatment

Plant, Recreation Grounds upgrade and Byron Street landscaping and developed a Community Safety Plan, refocussed NYE, employed additional youth workers and an Economic Development Officer etc yet there hasn’t been any positive recognition by Byron United. ‘All local government faces ongoing difficulties with the state government assuming control over planning and crown lands and cost shifting many responsibilities. ‘I can only hope that the community appreciates the difficulties that Council faces in meeting the needs of the whole community.’

Equality a right, not a ďŹ ght Vol 22 #38

March 4, 2008

Letting down our youth There are many things which Byron Shire Council has left undone but the most disappointing, and one of the most urgent, is the repairs to the Youth Activities Centre (YAC) so it can be used as a place of public entertainment (POPE). The delay is not the will of the majority of Councillors. Mayor Jan Barham has been a staunch supporter of youth activities and in August 2006 (2006!) Councillors resolved to allocate $111,000 to upgrade the YAC. It seems an easy enough job. As Byron Youth Service director Paul Spooner said at last Thursdayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Council meeting, â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;This is not a Lighthouse Road project. This is not a Helen Street footbridge. Basically, this is a big shed that needs some repairs!â&#x20AC;&#x2122; However a staff report tabled at the same meeting reckoned the building could not be repaired and opened until November 2008, two months after the Council election. Councilâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s own development application and POPE licence application werenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t lodged with the planning department until December 2007. It must be a long walk from one desk to another. That a report on the ďŹ nance/ resource implications on a public building the public is funding was kept conďŹ dential from the agenda papers is ludicrous. Getting a POPE licence is more complicated than whacking up a shed in your backyard but the process should not take two years from the initial resolution. It is bureaucracy gone mad. The refurbishment of the Mullumbimby civic hall, a much bigger job, is expected to be ďŹ nished on time at the end of April after only six monthsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; work. In the meantime the youth of the Shire are left without an alcohol-free venue for entertainment. During the last two years the two Council directors responsible for the YAC project have resigned. Now two new directors â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Mark Arnold of governance and community services and Phillip Holloway of asset management services â&#x20AC;&#x201C; have an ideal opportunity to prove their mettle. In addition, Council has appointed two new youth development ofďŹ cers who should be keen to urge their colleagues on. Parents nagged by teenagers with nothing to do would also feel justiďŹ ed in giving Mark and Phillip a call. Councillors also want to encourage some action, voting last week to â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;receive a report at the 27 March 2008 Ordinary Meeting to provide opportunities to stage and fast track the YAC facility renovations and to clarify the status of the current leased/licensed area.â&#x20AC;&#x2122; Letâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not keep the youth of the Shire waiting any longer.

nternational Womenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Day (IWD) on Saturday March 8 celebrates 100 years of action in the ďŹ ght for equality. And given the starting point, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s easy to look at the advances of the womenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s movement in the past 100 years and believe that women have made a monumentous leap forward. However, statistics quoted by UN Secretary General Ban Ki-moon last week at the 52nd Commission on the Status of Women confirm that the underbelly of misogyny and discrimination is still alive and well in cultures throughout the world. Womenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Resource Centre Caseworker, Kassa Bird, who is organising a debate for IWD on the topic â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Nothing much has changed for women in 100 yearsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;, agrees. â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Even in my own lifetime, a lot has changed,â&#x20AC;&#x2122; says Kassa. â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;But if we look at global realities for all women then we have to question which womenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s realities have changed. Even within societies like Australia we could say that middle class and upper class women have a lot more opportunities like education and career but perhaps not a great deal has changed for immigrant or working class women or Aboriginal women, who only got the vote 40 years ago.â&#x20AC;&#x2122; While middle class and upper class women may have beneďŹ ted from more opportunities, even in 2008, one in three of them will be the victims of sexual or physical violence (itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s still the leading cause of death or disability for women aged between 15 and 44); they will still earn on average at least 10% less than their male counterparts (the same gender pay gap as 30 years ago); they will still be under-represented in executive positions and on

boards in the business sector (fewer than 10% of board positions or senior executive jobs are occupied by women); and they are more likely to be dependent on welfare or live at the economic margin or in actual poverty, simply because they are female. â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Yes, weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve got jobs and yes, weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve got education and yes, weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re able to do all sorts of things,â&#x20AC;&#x2122; says Kassa, â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;but we still have to look good, we still have to keep the house clean, we still have to raise the childrenâ&#x20AC;Ś the pressure to be perfect is greater [and] the punishment of women for all sorts of ills in society is still really dominant.â&#x20AC;&#x2122; A prime example of this is domestic violence where women are often blamed for somehow â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;provokingâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; an

Rape trials are another example, where the defence is able to parade a womanâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s sexual history as an indication of the likelihood of her â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;consentâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; while the prosecution can make no mention of the defendantâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s priors. National estimates put the cost of domestic violence at more than $8 billion, WHO statistics report that 80% of the 50 million people affected by violent conďŹ&#x201A;icts, civil wars, disasters and displacement are women and children, and other worldwide statistics â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;paint a horrifying picture of the social and health consequences of

possible discussion of equality the Human Rights and Equal Opportunity Commission was on the receiving end of a walloping 40% budget cut, and the human rights branch in the Attorney-Generalâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s department had its staff cut from 21 to ďŹ ve. As a consolation prize however, women got the baby bonus. The Rudd government hasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t exactly got off to a ďŹ&#x201A;ying start either with the appointment of one woman to a 10-person steering committee for the Federal Governmentâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s 2020 summit. Nothing against Cate Blanchett but sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s hardly representative of your average working woman. While some progress might have been made, many of the services or conditions needed by women to participate equally in society, such as education, childcare and childfriendly workplaces, ďŹ&#x201A;exible employment, and equal pay, conditions and employment opportunities, remain nothing more than ideals. And, in or out of the home, women still do not have personal security. Perhaps the only way to ensure that the next 100 years is not peppered with the same forward-back, forward-back motion of womenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s rights, and similar or worse statistics, is to reignite the feminist ďŹ&#x201A;ame. Women have done themselves no favours by dropping the ball or their standards. Whatever the neo-conservatives might say, there is a dire need for women and men to put equality back on the agenda. Rather than the social chaos detractors predict, it is the only way to ensure that future generations of women will know true equality as a right not a ďŹ ght.

Howard succeeded in stymying any voice for women in the federal bureaucracy. The OfďŹ ce of the Status of Women had its staff and budget cut, and the government appointed a woman to its top position who had little or no credibility. The Sex Discrimination Commissioner resigned following Howardâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s accusations that she was â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;a Labor stoogeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; and the position remained vacant for 14 months.TheWomenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Bureau in the Department of Employment, Education, Training and Youth Affairs, and the Womenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Statistics Unit in the Australian Bureau of Statistics were abolished, and the government made a serious attempt to wind up the AfďŹ rmative Action Agency.

As Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist Susan Faludi so keenly observed in Backlash, for every forward step women make in the quest for real equality there is a backlash that seeks to undermine the advances or limit any further progress.This is done primarily with myths of infertility epidemics, man shortages or a loss of â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;femininityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; â&#x20AC;&#x201C; just the sort of thing that should bother a stereotypical woman in patriarchal culture â&#x20AC;&#x201C; and by blaming feminism for womenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s stillunhappy lot.

Eye on the ball Splendour may have withdrawn its DA, though Council is still in the process of deciding whetherYelgun and Tyagarah can become festival sites. Now is deďŹ nitely not the time for those concerned to take their eyes off the ball. As part of the preparation of its Local Environmental Plan (LEP), Council is now making decisions to allow Belongil Fields (and possibly adjoining properties) to be developed for housing, thereby excluding it as a caravan park and a music festival venue. At the same time they are deciding what parts of our wildlife corridors will be protected and what activities will be allowed in them, including at Yelgun. Also they are determining whether activities, such as major festivals, will be allowable activities at Yelgun, Tyagarah and other sites in the Shire. Councillors will be making their decisions on such issues over the next few weeks. Theoretically the community will get a chance to comment when the draft LEP is exhibited for public comment, though it is unlikely that Council will accept any substantive changes as this will require the LEP process to be restarted. The only way the community will get a real say is if Council prepares the Growth Management Strategy required by the Far North Coast Regional Strategy. The Strategy is meant to address urban and rural settlement as well as commercial, retail, industrial and tourism development (presumably including festival sites), with explicit ten year staging programs and identification of infrastructure requirements. Unless people speak out now and demand Council prepares and exhibits a Growth Management Strategy they may soon find something they donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t like in their back yards. Dailan Pugh

The religion of economics If I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t know much about economics, I seem to be in good company when it comes to inflation and interest rates. A few months ago Alan Kohler, the likeable expert who delivers the ABC ďŹ nancial news, expressed wonder that although petrol prices had spiked there had been no increase in other prices as a result. But if we spend more on petrol we are obviously going to have less left to spend on other items, right? According to conventional theory there should therefore in fact have been a downward pressure on other prices due to the reduced demand. What Mr Kohler was getting at, without saying it (and perhaps even without realising it) was that increased petrol prices increase costs to business and therefore increase the price these businesses need to charge in order to survive. This observation brings us to the fundamental ďŹ&#x201A;aw in conventional thinking about inďŹ&#x201A;ation: it is not excess demand alone which drives prices up, meaning that putting interest rates up so that there is less money around may not always be appropriate. It seems to me that in the current climate it isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t only petrol which is driving up costs, but also the huge increase in other prices resulting from the drought and the resources boom. Increased retail prices affect

not only local manufacture, but drive up the price which China must charge for the shoddy junk it makes out of those resources and sends back to us (a process I call â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Mao Tse Tungâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s revengeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;). If Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m right about those premises then itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not only the aspirational mortgage belt that suffers from interest rate hikes but also local manufacturers and importers; their margins will shrink because of the reduced amount of money available for their products. Now in a market economy whatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;goodâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; and whatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;badâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; is supposed to be determined by the forces of supply and demand. If the result of these forces is inďŹ&#x201A;ation, then inďŹ&#x201A;ation should be â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;goodâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;, shouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t it? And once the â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;excessâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; money around has been absorbed by inflated prices, then things should quickly return to normal. I can understand the situation that existed in Germany in the 1920s where you would willingly pay a wheelbarrow full of bank notes for a loaf of bread because you feared that tomorrow it would cost two wheelbarrows; who needs it. But what is the basis for deciding that once an arbitrary ďŹ gure of around 4%pa has been reached itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s time to press the panic button? More importantly, who decides what prices are included and excluded in the calculation of the inďŹ&#x201A;ation

rate? There is no media alarm when land prices and share prices go up; indeed they praise it, disguising this gross inconsistency by referring to â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;valueâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; instead of â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;pricesâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;. The day you see a market crash reported in your favourite newspaper with the headline â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Shares and land now more affordableâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;, youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll know that youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve died and entered a parallel universe. Economics resembles more a religion than a discipline, let alone a science, and Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m reminded of the ancient Confucian saying I invented a few years ago: â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Things which look, smell and sound like bullshit unlikely to be lotus blossom.â&#x20AC;&#x2122; My reason for commenting locally is that we have in this shire one Mungo McCallum, devoted Labor Party fancier who may be in a position to pass on my puny thoughts to the beloved Kev. It would be nice if the latter decided that being an â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;economic conservativeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; does not bind him to the usual economic correctness and the unchallenged assumptions that go with it. Besides Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m sure Mungo would love to put me forward as one of the 1000 visionaries to attend Kevâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s upcoming Canberra Crapon. What would be the point in sending 1000 people who agree with each other?

to strengthen the capacity for change in all areas of society, by linking up, supporting and providing empowering learning opportunities for local leaders. The Ethos Climate Change Leaders Network is coordinated from Byron Shire. It has networking hubs here in the Northern Rivers and the Coffs Harbour/Bellingen region in NSW, and in Queensland on the Sunshine Coast and the Gold Coast hinterland. Ethos maintains close connections with a number of Brisbane organisations with a similar mission. The development of youth leadership for sustainability is an important objective of the Ethos Foundation. We have a policy of seeking sponsors for youth scholarships to many of our learning programs. Ethos is now researching the possibility of offering internships to young people who are interested in developing the leadership, organising, facilitation, and communication skills needed to help bring about a transition to a more sustainable future. In order to assess the need for such an internship program and identify the kinds of hands-on learning experi-

ences that might be useful to young people, we would like to hear from any people under the age of 25 years who would value an opportunity like this. If there is sufďŹ cient interest we will arrange some small group discussions over coming weeks to explore the possibilities. We are also interested in hearing from any businesses, organisations or individuals who might be interested in sponsoring an internship. For more information about the Climate Change Leaders Network and other Ethos programs, visit the website www.climateleadership.net.au. To express interest in the proposed youth sustainability internship program, please contact me at ken@ethosfoundation.org.

action from the same local member some years ago on the issue of a new hospital for our Shire. Given the less than forthcoming position of the rabble down in Sydney one would have thought a local member of the same political persuasion might have had a go at getting a few back door snippets of useful information. After some very muddled communication the ball was thrown back in my lap with – yes you’ve guessed it – ‘It’s a state government matter.’ To say I was speechless is the most polite spin I can put on it. Regular performance assessment for local members anyone? Hugh Ermacora

Koonyum Range QThere’s no denying that in heavily populated areas, trains make perfectly good sense as a means of transporting people and goods about. In small country towns, however, private transport appears to be the only realistic option both in terms of convenience and cost. One hundred and fifty million dollars could lay an awful lot of new bike track down (or build a decent

homeless shelter in nearly every town in NSW) and with the ready availability of light electric bikes and carts, they certainly seem much more environmentally friendly than large diesel trains. The rail corridor is not going to see trains back on it so why is everyone wasting so much time and energy, hassling pollies for reneging on election promises they were never going to keep in the first place (like that’s something new)? Plus it’s not as though a train track can’t be relaid in the future if the population ever warrants it. But I’m not so sure we’d want to accommodate so many people that the Shire becomes the thriving metropolis that would justify a train service. There are many downsides to reinstating a train service in the Northern Rivers. Bangalow for instance would be divided once again by a fence they fought so hard to stop. A large unsightly walkway would have to be built which would spoil the ambience of the pleasant historic village. The chances of ever getting the desperately needed bypass between the north and south of Byron would be reduced to virtually nil. Without an overpass or

underpass built at the current crossing, mass chaos will ensue during peak holiday times. If a freight train line was to be built between Brisbane and Sydney somewhere, it should go out west away from the more populated coast. Just imagine what one of those ten-minute freight-

ers would do to an already gridlocked town. We don’t have the population figures of most northern hemisphere countries, and we have much greater distances to cover. I’m no fan of those big b-double trucks, but in general, those professional drivers are far more courteous and safer to be

around than many other road users. Plus, anyone who ever tried biking between Bangalow and Byron knows how much you are putting your life at risk, whichever route you take. I can only imagine a similar scenario for Mullum and Ewingsdale cyclists as well.

Council failed to win our hearts and minds Q Your cover story re the purchase of the Telstra site in Mullumbimby by Council for $461,000 may have filled the hearts and minds of the Mullum locals with delight but it filled us with consternation about Council’s use of ratepayers’ money (to buy popularity and approval perhaps?). Our situation in the north of the Shire is dire, more so after the rains of the last eight weeks. Where is Council’s duty of care to us? The streets of South Golden Beach are a disgrace and a danger, especially Robin and Peter Streets. They’re way beyond rescuing by the tar ‘ploppers’ now – they need

a proper resurfacing. The open channels – loosely called drains – are overgrown with weeds and filled with rank water that is a breeding ground for mosquitoes. Whatever happened to the promised pump that was supposed to take this water away? And it takes very little rain for Redgate Road, the main access into South Golden Beach, to reduce to one lane in a couple of places because of the appalling drainage. It’s feeling increasingly as though we’re living in the backblocks of Goa or Kerala, with no-one in authority prepared to act. Despite the best efforts of

our active and energetic Progress Association and Floodplain Management Committee, Byron Council has already given in to Tweed Council and the cane farmers about widening the bund so they can add their flood water to ours; and Council is apparently still flirting with the notion of inflicting the Splendour in the Grass festival site on residents up this end of the Shire with all the problems your readers are only too aware of. It fills us with despair. As Julie Boyd of Sustainable Villages Alliance said in her excellent comprehensive letter in your last edition: ‘There is a strong ground-

swell of dissatisfaction in five it is still congested at communities... Listen to the 9am, when all of us other drudges are trying to get to people.’ Jill Lennon and work. Please, Jan, if you are Gwen Bloomfield so ‘green’, could you respond South Golden Beach and advise as to what is being done about this issue, as QLook, don’t get me wrong, these gridlock emissions are it’s fantastic that Byron Shire certainly not good for the Council has just spent half a environment nor my inner million bucks on some land peace! Now that Becton has for the community in Mul- the go-ahead and Byron is lum, but what is happening becoming ever more popuabout the bypass in Byron? lar, this situation will only get I’ve put up with the traffic worse. Maybe one of those jams for ten years and would green arrow, red cross thingys love to know if anything is for when there is no traffic happening at all to alleviate heading the other way could the traffic going in to town be a start!

Hitchhiker blues To the two hitchhikers I picked up at the Middle Pocket turnoff on 23/2/08 around 3.30pm. It was a very hot afternoon and out of compassion (not to mention the fact that you, the female, stood almost in the middle of the road and you, the male, was behind a tree and only appeared after I had stopped) I decided to give you both a lift, and as it was my local road I trusted in your integrity. I was feeling uncomfortable with the way you put your arm behind your girlfriend’s back (not around her shoulders as a loving boyfriend would do) as I knew my purse was in the back. You took advantage of the fact that I had to keep my eye on the road while your girlfriend (accomplice?) made chitchat. You obviously managed to reach it and take it from my bag.

Loving waters I believe that the waters of the world are pouring upon us, here, in this blessed pocket of the world. So that we can love the rain and therefore imbue the rain with love, and as that water flows into the oceans and spreads around the world the love goes with it.

Are we being tested, here in the Shire, to prove our spiritual natures and love the water, no matter how frustrating, at times, it may seem?! Water gives us LIFE – and LOVE can change the world. If only we can spread it around” !!

ron is the writer’s conscious intention. It’s a contradiction for effect, usually poetic, dramatic, rhetorical and so on. As Melissa Flowers clearly wasn’t aware that ‘objective opinion’ is a CIT she could not have been creating an oxymoron. Simple. And no need for your parting criticism.

Oxymorons

Reviewing

In the interests of balance, for which The Echo is renowned, you ran both sides of the argument in the great oxymoron debate (Letters, February 26). Unfortunately, this only creates further confusion. At the risk of labouring the point: all oxymorons are contradictions in terms but not all CITs are oxymorons. All tigers are cats, not all cats are tigers. What defines an oxymo-

Re the very important topic of John Campbell’s movie reviews. Sometimes, when reading the letter pages, a letter comes along which stumps me: I don’t know whether the writer is being serious, or not. This was the case with Melissa Flowers’ letter the other week: for a while there, I couldn’t tell whether Melissa was writing in jest, or genuinely having a go at John Campbell.

tory. What more could we ask of a film reviewer? I do not want beige and ‘correct’ movie reviewing, I want to continue reading John’s informed and informative (and frequently humorous) opinions on the offerings of modern cinema.

To my horror I realised that Melissa was serious. That her opinion really is that John Campbell is a dreadful movie reviewer. Well, I’m writing to disagree. I don’t think that John rants, and I don’t think his reviews reveal a love affair with his own cleverness. If by that statement Melissa means that John’s enjoyment of writing and playing with words is at the expense of his heart and what he feels about a film, then again I must protest. I find his opinions are, to use a phrase that Byronites might well understand, full of ‘emotional intelligence’. Further, I argue that John’s qualifications as a reviewer are not ‘non-existent’ but, on the contrary, impressive, because it’s obvious he has a strong interest in and care for the art of filmmaking, combined with a good knowledge of cinematic his-

Juggernauts, cheap goods and local shopping Q ‘You can’t stopWoolworths, be realistic’ is an attitude I have encountered in our community, and everyone’s perception is equally valid. However, I wonder what it is in our psyche that accepts this as a fait accompli? The Woolworths juggernaut is indeed big and powerful and earns a profit of some $5m per day (net profit after tax up by 28.6%: ABC Lateline 26.2.08). Furthermore, our State Minister for Planning, Frank Sartor approved the DA – one of the reasons being that it is in line with Mullumbimby becoming a ‘major town’ as per the Draft Far North Coast Regional Strategy which he wrote. As far as power structures go, the Sartor/Woolworths combination is intimidating – yet is this what we really want in our community? Do we want

to become a similar link in the Tweed Coast/Ballina/Lismore homogeneity? Is passive acquiescence the way to go, or can we retain Mullumbimby as a model of unique, sustainable and innovative creativity? What do we have here that’s so special? Well, The Echo is one of the most independent and different newspapers in the world, we have unique and ecofriendly businesses like Santos, compost toilets, innovations such as the We-Moon washable women’s pads and many more. In fact, I am collating a register of sustainable businesses; please call me on 6684 3723 with details. We welcome useful information for our campaign to stop Woolworths and create a model of sustainability here in Mullumbimby. Please visit our street stall outside Santos

most afternoons and volunteers are needed to help run it. If there is anywhere in the world that creates a viable vibrant alternative to the one-size-fits-all Woolworths, we can do it.

Mullumbimby Q I write to support the argument put forward by Richard Kidby in support of Woolworths (Letters, February 26). It astounds me to have been inundated with such a spate of uninformed opinion. Much of it emanating from the very people who would have most to benefit from such a happening. It is a sign that Mullumbimby has become of age. We should take pride in the fact such a successful highly respected Australian organisation should elect to establish here. They should be welcomed with open arms – and not looked upon as a pariah dedicated to destruction of our life style. Many people across our

nation are prepared to drive miles just to shop at ‘Woolies’ and there are a great many of us Mullumbimbians prepared to take a weekly horror trek to Byron Bay for the privilege. Certainly it will bring some change to our village, but the only thing one can be sure of in life is ‘change’ and those opposed to it should wake up and gear themselves to live with the times. C’est la vie.

Byron Bay QHas the community ever talked about and tried to collectively create a Mullumbimby farmer’s market? If not, how about it? The site could be within spitting distance of the proposed Woolworths site, or in the train station park where we held last year’s ‘New City Rd and Surrounds Street Party’. We adore Mullum but it’s quite challenging to find affordable, good quality produce. Mullum Farmer’s Market would solve this pickle and provide another opportunity to bring the community together.

Jann Gilbert There are many non-profit organisations in the community that have survived years of operation due primarily to the sheer will and determination of the people involved – often despite a lack of funds and pretty much everything else. We’ve all seen the evidence and heard the stories: yet another successful group/fundraiser/action brought together on not much more than a wing, a prayer and the support of the community. Many of these community organisations rely on some sort of meagre government funding, and all of them on fundraising or philanthropic support. Likewise, the majority of work in most of these organisations is done by volunteers. There are a number of philanthropic groups around the country that help to support community work, however the benefit of having one in your own backyard would appear to be obvious. Now in its fifth year the Northern Rivers Community Foundation has helped over 21 community organisations and distributed more than $160,000 in grants and ‘flow-through’ funds. Byron Youth Service

Local group Spaghetti Circus (www.spaghetticircus.com) is one of the beneficiaries of NRCF funding.

(BYS) is just one of a number of community organisations that have been on the receiving end of the grants program. NRCF grants have provided the seed funding for a high-level computer/graphics access point for young people at the YAC (Studio 1), and a new PA for the ‘Riff’ alternative education music program. In both projects, NRCF funding was critical to purchasing equipment. While the funding is a godsend, Director of BYS Paul Spooner feels that it’s the community aspect of the Foundation that adds an extra dimension. ‘It’s not just about the money, it’s actually about the relationships with the board members,’ says Paul. ‘Christopher Dean, the Chair of the Foundation, was at the launch of Studio 1 and met some of the young people so he got to know some of the issues that they’re confronted with. Marg Robertson, another board member, was here when we used the PA for the first time and she was able to talk to young people. The difference with a large funding body, say, the government, is that you don’t have that sort of connection. The Foundation fills a need, where small projects can get off the ground, because of their local involvement.’ Spaghetti Circus, another grant recipient, has also benefited from its relationship with the Foundation. The grant has helped with Circus plans to turn its ‘back shed’ into a performance area so that, in future, gala shows can be held there. This allows management to spend funds on infrastructure rather than the incredibly expensive hire of a big top and its related costs or continual DAs. Tanya Burkhardt, Communications & Funding Coordinator with the Circus says, ‘The Foundation has provided funding for the initial bank of seating, which seats about 40 to 50 people.

Our vision is to have four or five banks of seating. The idea is that they’re movable, we can bolt them in and out. Our major show this year is Super Heroes and we’re going to do it in this space.’ At present the back shed is used as an advanced class training area, which is also beneficial when it comes to transforming it into a performance space because, for the performers, it’s familiar territory. Where they train is where they will perform. Tanya also highlighted the relationship factor with NRCF board members as an added bonus. ‘I’ve really enjoyed what they’ve provided,’ says Tanya. ‘It’s not just about “Here’s your money, what’s the outcome?”. They actually met with us and wanted to know more about the organisation. John Callanan has been fantastic in terms of mentoring. It’s been great just to know that there are people you can call on for advice. It’s not just about the dollars, as an organisation grows you need that sort of support to guide you.’ Another of the many community organisations to benefit from the NRCF grants program is the Byron Homeless and Community Breakfast, which was saved the agony of dipping into its meagre funds in order to continue the breakfast. Subsequent to losing the community markets funding source, organiser Gwen Gould watched the little the Community Breakfast had in reserve dwindling even further. When she saw the NRCF’s call for small grant applications Gwen took what she thought was a long shot and applied for a grant. ‘Even though we have funding to cover the food we still need to buy equipment, urns and other stuff,’ says Gwen. ‘And then when Auntie Jude died we put on a special spread in the park. So we’ve always tried to keep a bit of money aside to do things for them when something special comes up. We

also wanted to be able to cover the costs of a Mental Health First Aid training course for our volunteers because we’re dealing with some very unstable people at the breakfast. We didn’t really expect to get it, and lo and behold, we got the grant.’ Gwen started the homeless breakfast over three years ago as part of the Community Centre’s emergency relief program. The breakfast is important not only because of its ability to feed a large number of homeless and marginalised people at a very modest cost but also because it has become an access point for a range of community health and welfare workers to maintain contact with these people. ‘We have a lot of different services come in,’ says Gwen. ‘It’s become a bridge for the whole community.’ Building bridges is exactly what NRCF is hoping to do: between donors, recipients, the Foundation and the whole community, and they appear to be succeeding. It’s clear when talking to people from the many organisations that have benefited from NRCF funding that it’s the relationship rather than the dollars that ultimately counts. ‘The real strength of the Foundation is in connecting with its local community,’ says Paul Spooner. ‘Being able to provide some seed funding so we can then go to other people and say, “Well, these people think it’s worthwhile, how about you come on board?”.’ So how about it? For all of you folk out there who might feel the need to help, or have itchy fingers and a cheque book, surely, there can’t be any better place to invest your money than in your own community. Q For grant information, to make a donation or for general enquiries contact NRCF on 6621 9996 or visit the website www.nrcf.org.au.

Out to create resilient communities Kali Wendorf When Mullumbimby residents discovered their town was soon to boast a new Woolworths supermarket, they found themselves suddenly thrust into the challenge of our time: how to sustain a healthy community in the face of looming crises like peak oil, climate change, food security, water scarcity and the often predatory practices of huge global corporations. The times we live in call us to ask this question of all such development proposals: will it contribute to the strength and resilience of our community? The aggressive pricing strategies of large corporate supermarkets such as Coles and Woolworths force other local businesses to the wall. They also undermine the economic viability of small farmers by driving their margins down. When a community loses its locallyowned businesses and local family farmers its vulnerability to external crises is greatly increased. In an age of steadily rising energy costs and the threat of climate change related disruption, no community can afford to leave itself open to such risk. What capacity for self-reliance and reduced reliance on oil will remain

for communities whose local economy has been gutted by corporations driven only by the goal of maximising profits? With steadily rising energy prices and the even greater threat of global warming, how smart is it to be dependent for our basic food supplies on supermarkets that transport food thousands of kilometres from the farm to the consumer? How much more sensible it would be to rebuild our capacity to feed ourselves from the bountiful resources of our own region. Along with peak oil and climate change, a new threat is emerging. According to experts, a global food catastrophe that will reach further

and be more crippling than anything the world has ever seen is soon approaching. Record oil prices, increased demand for biofuel crops, and the growing middle class in China and India demanding a Western-style diet with more meat and more processed food means food prices are rising steadily. ‘If you combine the increase of the oil prices and the increase of food prices then you have the elements of a very serious [social] crisis in the future,’ said Jacques Diouf, head of the UN Food and Agricultural Organisation, recently. Reviving and protecting local food economies reduces our reliance on transported food (and therefore oil), but also protects jobs and increases the community’s capacity to be self-supportive. Self-reliance means that a community can boost its immunity against global changes, and better respond to the local demand. The Ethos Foundation and Kindred magazine are hosting an evening of conversation about our local food system and how we can create a more resilient community through community gardens, community suppor ted agriculture (CSAs), farmers markets

and of course growing more of our own food. Our special guest is Roberto Perez, Cuban per maculture designer and local food activist. Roberto is best known for his role in the inspiring film, The Power of Community: How Cuba Survived Peak Oil. In dialogue with Roberto we bring, from the front lines of local production for local consumption, Robert Pekin, director of Food Connect – one of the world’s largest CSAs, Russ Grayson from Australian City Farms and Community Gardens Network, and Sue Haynes, local farmer and organiser of the Byron Farmers Market. ‘Think Global: Eat Local – in conversation with Roberto Perez’ will be at the Byron Bay Community Centre on Wednesday, March 12. The main part of the evening will open with a screening of the new Australian short film Think Global: Eat Local – Diet for a Sustainable Society. An optional screening of The Power of Community is also scheduled prior to the event at 5.30pm. Tickets are on sale at Santos, or online at www.kindredmagazine.com.au.

Simple Way To Lose Fat

Last year I lost 25 kilos. Everyone keeps asking me: how did you do it? There is no magic answer. No treatment, device or potion can get rid of excess weight. I did it the old fashioned way. Diet and exercise. I gave up booze, sugar and high GI carbs. Initially I was worried that with the fat I may also lose my personality and become one of those pious health nuts. I am pleased to say I am still afflicted with a healthy sense of cynicism, and am still a pain but in a slightly smaller ass.

A few months ago I was approached by The Body Oasis to trial a cellulite treatment called Endermologie. At first I was a bit deflated. I had lost all that weight but my thighs and butt still looked like porridge in a body stocking, and someone had noticed! I am an advocate of ageing naturally and believe there have to be a few of us pioneers who say no to botox, tit jobs, butt lifts and liposuction. It’s called going with grace. Otherwise future generations may never get to know what an old woman actually looks like. I had never heard of Endermologie but was immediately suspicious. I imagined some invasive fat vacuum. I was assured that it was originally developed to treat scar tissue in burns victims. Turned out that their skin texture improved and cellulite disappeared. It’s this funny little roller

device that sucks and kneads connective tissue and triggers fat cells to release fat, while simultaneously stimulating the body’s blood and lymph flow. It also boosts collagen and elastin production to give your skin a healthier rejuvenated tone.

I’m like ‘yeah, sure it does’. I have to admit, I thought that Nancy from the Body Oasis must be confident, because I told her that if I didn’t think the treatment worked I wouldn’t endorse it. In ten 35 minute treatments I was amazed. In fact I’d eat my words if they weren’t so high in carbohydrates. We did the initial weigh in and measure up, and in just 3 weeks with absolutely no kilo reduction I had lost 5cm off my waist (fluid retention) and 2cm off my thighs. My upper arms had lost 1cm each in circumference and the flappy bit that hangs over the bra under the arm (I call that the lady scrotum) had reduced from a bulge to an inoffensive curve. It was very relaxing (like a deep tissue massage) and left me feeling invigorated. I have a noticeable cellulite reduction and have just knocked back a request to be the centrefold for the next Senior’s Monthly. Only women get cellulite, and only men get man boobs. Endermologie will also reduce those man titties and love handles. Like me, its totally natural and it works.

One of the most powerful effects of chiropractic care is to reduce dural tension. The dura is the connective tissue that surrounds the brain and spinal chord. In between these layers of tissue lies the CSF fluid commonly known as spinal fluid. The flow of CSF is vital to the optimal functioning of the nervous system. It washes away toxins, acts as a shock absorber and helps the cells communicate. When dural torsion is present this restricts the flow of fluid. This results in poor concentration, fatigue and

Comment

Wal-Mart in Woolies clothing: the tactics of expansion David Maslow An article last month (The Echo, February 19) mentioned how Woolworths appears to be patterning its operating procedures on America’s infamous WalMart retail giant. I have just returned from spending many years in the US as a property analyst. My work included shopping centres that contained a Wal-Mart, particularly in the southeast of the country. There, antiunion labour laws and few development controls have allowed Wal-Mart to run rampant. Guy Rundle, quoted in last month’s article, accurately described the bleak landscape in South Carolina. In conventional economic terms, Woolworths Limited,

an independent company, is one of Australia’s, and shareholders’, great success stories. Woolworths is still primarily a supermarket, with 86% of its 2007 revenue coming from the supermarket division. But its growing reach into electronics, liquor, petrol, variety stores (Big W), plus the opening of new buying offices in India and China, suggest they may be viewing the market dominating tactics of Wal-Mart as a model. That trend makes sense, because Wal-Mart is the world’s largest and arguably most successful corporation. Four of the ten richest Americans are heirs of Sam Walton. Wal-Mar t combines supermarket and general merchandise sales, including A Wal-Mart Supercenter in Madison Heights, Michigan, USA.

pharmacy, appliances, clothing, tyres and electronics under one roof. The typical store, without a food market, is just over two acres in size, but the latest model superstores that include food, cover over four acres. WalMart’s success as the world’s number one retailer is based on high-tech inventory control, driving out competition, and scandalous labour practices, keeping costs to a minimum. In many small towns across America, they are often the only store left standing. In such instances they may become the only commercial employer in the town. Along this path to corporate Nirvana, Wal-Mart is known for its union-busting, small town local retailing destruction and the poverty and despair that lie in its wake. This is the situation I saw in the mid-1990s in Eastern Tennessee, a rural area between Chattanooga and Knoxville. The once charming commercial centre of Madisonville was completely boarded up. Except for a couple of law offices, not one retail store was open. A cou-

ple of kilometres away was a Wal-Mart, in a small centre that also contained a couple of fast food joints. A local realtor said that the housing market had dried up and people were leaving because there were no jobs that paid a living wage, other than a few government and service jobs. Sadder still was that the Wal-Mart was scheduled to close. A large superstore was nearing completion about 20km away and all of the smaller model Wal-Marts in the region were closing. That meant that the people served by the original Wal-Marts had to drive 15km to 50km or so to buy basic necessities as pretty much every other store had been wiped out by the original Wal-Mart. Wal-Mart employees are offered barely subsistence wages. Healthcare benefits, if any, are so expensive that most employees can’t afford them, so they are forced to go on to Medicaid, the inadequate public health system of last resort for the poor. Any employee found talking to a union representative is summarily fired. Illegal immigrants, typically from

Mexico, are prime targets for cleaning staff. They are offered extraordinarily low wages and forced to work long hours. Stories abound of mistreatment such as locking exit doors so they can’t leave during the night shift. Deaths have occurred from blocked fire escapes. Yes, Woolworths has a softer touch. It prides itself on employee relations… it loves the lower-wage 16 to 20 year-old group. It has even started a green store program and has an excellent food waste recycling program – maybe there is money in it. But its treatment of suppliers, demanding rock bottom prices, and its predatory pricing prac-

tices that drive out competition, all smack of Wal-Mart. Last month’s ar ticle described the example of the destructive effects of a Woolworths enclave on Kempsey. The concentration of a Big W with the supermarket and liquor store in Kempsey suggest that a Woolworths megastore concept may be waiting to happen. Who needs small shops anyway? Woolworths’ net income in 2007 was up over 20% from 2006, even though its food sales revenue was up only 9%. This is due to its diversification into the more profitable categories, as well as its improvements in IT and transportation operations, which saved the company $7.2 billion in 2007… Wal-Mart again. The Woolworths 2007 AGM report discusses how future expansion will include 15 to 25 new stores per year. So there is tremendous corporate pressure to meet that target. Small town Australia, like Mullumbimby, will be under siege. In NSW, all this is facilitated by the huge ally this kind of development has in the notorious Planning Minister, Frank Sartor, the anti-planner. As we experienced in Mullumbimby, local Council disapproval of the supermarket DA now owned by Woolworths was simply swept aside. This has got to stop now. It appears to be only the beginning of the Wal-Marting of Australia.

This Thursday the innovative and amazing Idan Raichel Project perform at the Bangalow A&I Hall. Here’s what the man behind the Idan Raichel Project had to say about the inspiration for the musical collaboration... It started as a studio project. I was working on demos in a studio I set up in my parent’s basement and was inviting many different singers and musicians to work with me. I was hoping to create demos that would lead to more work as a producer or songwriter, but it developed into the recordings that are the basis of the album. After the songs started getting airplay and there was a demand for a live show, I decided to invite seven musicians of various backgrounds, each exceptional artists on their own, to participate in creating a stage show. We sit in a semi-circle on stage, I am off to the side, and each artist gets a chance to shine. I thought this embodied the collaborative spirit of the project. We have been touring with the live show for a few years now. Why do you think you have been so successful? I had no expectations that the first album would be as successful as it ended up being. It was a surprise how well people responded. World music is not the mainstream music of Israel and I had not expectation that it would be played on the mainstream radio of Israel. It is very exciting that people reacted to the album like this, and I think people like it because they can see something of themselves in it. My audience is themselves of different backgrounds and ages and I think they can all find something in it that they can relate to. Well, the success of the album has demonstrated that the Israeli public is more open to different sounds than most people in the music business realized. There’s a growing world music and reggae scene in Israel and a lot of different groups experimenting with folk and traditional music from different cultures. I wasn’t the first, but for some reason the way the public reacted was very personal. How do you balance ancient and modern instruments? Does it change the kind of music that you create? My music is very diverse and has a lot of different influences, which probably comes from all of the different sounds I grew up listening to. You can hear the influences of Middle Eastern and East African melodies in the songs I compose, as well as African and Caribbean rhythms. In my music you can hear elements of Israeli folk songs, some jazz flavours, and echoes of the Gypsy music and Latin American music I used to play on my accordion as a child. I am a keyboard player, so I use a fair amount of programming in my music, but more then

anything I focus on the acoustic, organic elements. Some of our songs are purely acoustic, others have a lot of treatment. I just try to do what what works best to support the melody. On stage we play a lot of songs acoustic, and I have even been doing a series of concerts with just me on grand piano, a hand percussionist and guest singers, or instrumentalists, instrumentalists a very intimate show. show

The Sound of Israel

You have so many traditions within your project – how do you weave it all together so cohesively? Honestly, I didn’t consciously seek out musicians of particular backgrounds, I just invited my friends to record with me, and my friends just turned out to be from different cultures. That’s the reality of modern Israel, so I decided to celebrate it and focus on the things that each musician brings that makes them special and unique. For me it was something very natural. In Israel I live along my friends, I’m not just doing music with Ethiopian singers, I’m doing music with my friends. In Israel in every neighborhood you can find people from all over, you just have to have an open mind. You can explore and respect the history of each neighbour of yours. It came very naturally that the Project was so diverse because my friends all come from diverse areas and have diverse backgrounds. How important is spirituality to your music production? My songs are more about love then religion, but I draw a lot of inspiration from the poetry and messages of religious texts. I read the bible a lot. Agatha Christie said, all of the important things have already been told and we just have to repeat it. All of the important sentences have been written and we have to express it in our contemporary language. I found the most beautiful love songs in the Song of Songs, and ideas of commitment in Job. The philosophy of King Solomon, the sun goes up the sun goes down and nothing changes. Ecclesiastes, King Solomon write it and also Psalms. The song Out of the Depths was inspired by this. Sometimes, I take sentences from the bible and edit it for a contemporary feeling. Why do you think music is so important? Music speaks to people in a way that words alone cannot. It is a powerful vehicle of expression that goes straight to the heart. With triple platinum album sales and fresh from a world tour, The Idan Raichel Project is an unparalleled concert experience not to be missed. The Bangalow A&I Hall on Thursday. Tickets are available at Santos in Mullumbimby, Fairy Floss and Orgasmic Foods in Byron Bay and Yami’s in Brunswick.

HATCHING YOUR GRAND PLAN Human beings can no longer make decisions. We have become so inept we have taken to outsourcing all of our major life choices. Case in point: Life Coaches. They assist us to time manage, find direction and make choices that people in previous generations just got on with. Our sense of individualism has reached such epic proportions we are terrified that we may not live fully actualised lives, own big enough houses or drive big enough cars. If you want a good life, you are told to plan for it. It’s all about the plan. There’s the financial plan, the life plan, the wedding plan, the holiday plan, and of course the funeral plan. Heaven forbid your cheapskate family book a shitty covers band for the wake and bury you in a cardboard box. Plans are all about taking control and ensuring you get the life you believe you deserve. But life isn’t like that. Life is a furry beast with a mind of its own. Having a plan offers the same security as a saddle. You may stay on your horse for longer but there’s no guarantee that she ain’t gonna take you out at the first branch she comes to. Life is random. Life is chaotic. Life does not go to plan. That’s what I love about it. Planning is for dickheads with no sense of adventure. I’ll admit it, I have succumbed to the plan. When I had my first child I joined a pregnancy support group and under the advice of the attendant midwife I wrote a birth plan. The birth plan included a best top 10 cervical dilation hits play list (including Push It and Like a Virgin), assorted oils for rubbing into my sacrum, requests for a drug free birth (which was ironic because to date I had lived a drug filled life), candles, heat bags, and magical affirmations. As it

amil paiss

turned out I went crazy on the stink of jasmine, told my partner to get the fuck out of my face and demanded Pethidine. Babies make such distinct and different entries into the world, foot first, arm first, head jammed in the pelvis, half an hour in the car, blue with the cord around the neck, 39 hours in second stage... the fact that I had a fucking plan reflected my complete ignorance. There is only one birth plan: Get the baby out. This leads me to why my angst has turned against the plan. Just when you thought people couldn’t get any frigging stupider, in walks the Baby Planner. These are people who help indulgent middle class couples plan for their sprog. The mere existence of the Baby Planner van in the driveway should be an indicator that these people should not breed, lest they produce a killer strain of accountants or financial planners. You aren’t supposed to be able to afford a baby. Having a baby is the most expensive, time consuming, exhausting, unpredictable and energy draining thing you will ever do in your life. The baby bonus isn’t a government gift. It’s a compensation payout for the years of hardship to come. What does a baby planner actually do? ‘Mate, you sit there and relax while I knock up your wife.’ If all pregnancies were planned then most of us wouldn’t exist. I was unplanned. Most of my children were unplanned. I live an unplanned life. It’s wonderful. Nothing in my life never goes to plan because I don’t have one. It’s chaos, but I think you’ll find it’s more aligned with the nature of life. Life is an accident. All you have to do is respond. Eat the plan.

RING OF FYAH Roots Reggae group Fyah Walk hit the Beach Hotel Sunday sessions at 4pm. Introducing a fat new horn section, this band will be sure to groove and dub your troubles away with their rollin reggae lushness. King Charlie from the Red Eyes has almost finished producing their new CD due to hit the North Coast in two huge launches in April.

BLUE STEVE Pianist Steve Russell has played with the greats of jazz, from Gerry Mulligan, Eartha Kitt, Nancy Wilson, to bassist Miroslav Vitous and drummer Billy Hart, and a host of international and Australian musicians. He has opened for Wynton Marsalis, and in November last year The Steve Russell Trio was chosen to support Dionne Warwick’s concert at the Lyric Theatre (QPAC). Steve was said to ‘represent Australian jazz at its best’ (James O’Brien BCM) in one review of his CD When The Light Comes containing seven original titles, and featuring some of the best musicians in the country. If you have never seen this inspiring musician perform as a leader, here is your chance to discover his enormous talent as a pianist and composer, in the performance of some of his original titles and reworked

standards. It’s also your chance to hear some new material which will feature on his next album. Steve’s band will showcase the enormous talents of the Crossfire rhythm section, bassist Greg Lyon and drummer Scott Hills (The Flood) and will introduce emerging giant, guitarist Matt Smith, who at the age of 21, is drawing national acclaim. The Steve Russell Trio with guest Matt Smith will be performing at The Blue Birdy on Wednesday.

Come along for a truly unique evening in Byron’s most original and authentic venue... while the season is still with us!

BIG BOWLO OF THE BYRON VISTA Byron Vista’s recent move to the Byron Bowlo has proved so popular that it is not possible for the organisers to hold tables for people who want to arrive late. The best idea seems to be to get there early from 6.30pm onwards and enjoy Harry Freeman’s wondrous hour of piano bar while you have a drink and a great meal and wait for the main show to begin at around 7.45pm. Wednesday March 12 features one of the Shire’s true treasures in the form of Carl Cleves, best known as the guitarplaying half of the extremely popular Hottentots duo. Carl is appearing on his own this time, having just released a solo CD (with a little help from his friends), the first one since his Brazilian recordings, titled All Alone (MGM Aust) and one of its songs The Rose of Kordofan captured the Best Lyrics Award 2007 from the Australian

A KU FOR BOBBY Ku Promotions present Bobby Flynn and the Omega 3 in concert at the A&I Hall on Friday 4 April in Bangalow. Bobby is a pop explorer, a sonic adventurer, mining emotion, confounding critics, and delivering a thrilling collection of genrebusting songs. He’s not a pop commodity – and that’s a very rare and precious thing nowadays. ‘It’s his voice, which brings to mind the otherworldly tenderness of Nick Drake and baritone flashes of early 70’s David Bowie. The idealism of another time we may have felt we lost.’ Mark Mordue (SMH). Tickets are on sale now : www.oztix.com.au or 1300 762 545 for $22 or $25 at the door.

GET SMART Smart Artists are back at the Lennox Point Hotel this Saturday 9pm promoting the release of their new album aptly titled Never Too Late. Smart Artists continue to deliver one ‘helluva’ great night out delivering a brand of rock that reflects what they feel is missing in music today. Rolling verse flowing into catchy chorus, which melts into tasty guitar work… traditional rock/pop that captures energy and emotion with intelligence that doesn’t shift for trends or friends.

NOT LOST IN TRANSLATION The Translators is a collaboration between brothers James and Ben Hauptmann, Steve Hunter and Damien Wright. The band has been writing and rehearsing together since May last year and have created a unique blend of music with influences from Flamenco and Jazz traditions. Steve Hunter is one of Australia’s most accomplished electric bass players as well as an award winning composer with over 90 of his compositions/songs released on various albums. James and Ben Hauptmann have made a huge impact on the Sydney Jazz scene,

Peter C and the Soul Shakers are back at the Rails on Saturday at 7pm to play an eclectic mix of originals, standards and funky style blues sprinkled with a little bit of soul.

LISA HUNT AT THE JAM SHED ON THE BANKS OF THE TWEED RIVER IN CHINDERAH ON SUNDAY 16 MARCH

Mullumbimby band Broadfoot can’t believe their good fortune – two meals in one week. Following their recent good news that Bo’s in Byron are happy to have them over for dinner on Thursday evenings, the Ballina Hotel have invited them down for dinner on Friday. Broadfoot are often been described as ‘hungry’ but most people have mistaken this as being a band with drive and ambition. From now on the band wishes to be described as ‘thirsty’ and is actively seeking venues to quench their dusty throats – nothing fancy, domestic beer is fine.

OUT THERE Eleanor McEvoy has been busy since releasing her album Out There. Hailing from Ireland, her new album takes her into new territory featuring songs from various artists and songwriters. It is as diverse as it is about love, loss and romance and she misxes it all up with songs from jazz, country and folk genres. She plays the Rails on Monday.

<<< <<<<CULTURE CULTURE>>> >>> FILM BYRON BAY FILM FESTIVAL Anja Daeleman’s film is a quirky comedy about an office clerk trying to connect with his colleagues despite the faceless and cold atmosphere where he works. When he meets a tango dancer online, he reaches out to a workmate by trying to convince him to teach him to dance. Tanghi Argentini screens at BBFF on Friday from 7.30pm as part of session 26, which is also screening the Australian premiere of the feature film Ripple Effect, starring Forest Whittaker and Minnie Driver, and filmmaker and star Philippe Caland will be at the screening.

School, SAE Institute, Screenworks, Northern Rivers Conservatorium, Byron Model Management and other representatives from various facets of the film and television industries.

REEL MUMS MAKE FAT BOY RUN For busy mums who want to catch a flick and bring the bubs, Reel Mums has a screening of Run Fat Boy Run at 10am on Thursday. Dennis (played by Hot Fuzz star Simon Pegg) is an ordinary guy. He works as a security guard, he’s a little overweight and he smokes, but he’s basically a nice guy. However years ago Dennis did a terrible thing. On his wedding day to pregnant fiancee Libby (Thandie Newton), Dennis did a runner. Now Dennis realises he made a big mistake – he’s still in love with Libby, whom

www.echo.net.au

he sees frequently because of their now five year old son. Libby however has a new man in her life – handsome, charming, successful executive Whit (Hank Azaria). To prove to Libby that he’s no longer a quitter, he impulsively announces that he will compete against Whit in the London Marathon. Can Dennis really trade in his cold feet for running shoes, and win back the love of his life? A romantic comedy that affirms true love isn’t a sprint, it’s a marathon.

COMEDY MANDY IN THE RAW... AGAIN!!! Every year the Melbourne International Comedy Festival runs a competition to flush out the best and brightest emerging talent in the country. Stand Up comedy is a hard mistress, she’s enticing and cruel and to those of us who are afflicted by the bug, it can be years and years on a brutal circuit before so much as a snicker. Raw Comedy offers talented new comics the chance to fast track their career when they get the ‘Go Directly to Edinburgh’ card. Comics all around the country have built their careers on it, as the festival continues it’s mandate to nurture new and unique comic voices. Even our local voices have made it through. In fact, Melbourne Comedy Festival Associate Director, Toby Sullivan has commented that we have some particularly strong

talent here, and we have a style that stands alone. Ellen Briggs made it to the National Finals at Melbourne Town Hall last year, found herself in front of 2000 people and on telly in front of one million more. It’s an amazing experience for a polite, Mum of twins from Mullumbimby. Who will make it through this year? Do we have any more contenders for the Melbourne Comedy Festival finals? At the first Heat Paul McMahon made it through to the Brisbane semi-final – find out which talented new comic gets the second spot. Come and cheer them on at the Byron Service’s Club Pandanus Room with Mandy Nolan as MC on Monday. Bookings to 6684 3443. Show starts at 8pm. Tix are $15. Don’t forget as well that if you want to see me do my thing at the Service’s Club on Monday 17th before I head to the Melbourne Comedy Festival to perform my one woman show ‘She’ll Be Right’ with Divishti and Ellen Briggs as support and MC, then book on 6684 3443 or get your tix ($15) at the club. I’ll be giving the full Mandy hour experience, and I promise to keep my clothes on, so you don’t have to lock up your aortas!

WOMEN’S FESTIVAL The weekend of 8-9 March women from all around the region come together to celebrate The Whole Woman Festival and International Women’s Day

with a scintillating array of female authors, professionals and performers at the 6th Whole Woman Festival being held at Mantra @ Salt Beach. This year’s theme of the Women Planting Seeds of Change Forum is Back to Basics. Festival Director, Tania Usher says ‘Getting back to basics encapsulates ways to live simpler yet richer lives, often very challenging in this fast paced society in which we can find our lives being hijacked by an ever increasing burden of responsibilities. The 2008 Festival will encourage women to consider what’s important in their lives and suggest ways of simplifying the chaos when constantly bombarded by distractions. However the overarching theme of Whole Woman is to introduce fresh perspectives on everyday concepts so women walk away feeling empowered to make little changes that will enhance their lives, the lives of their family and in turn their community.’ Topics include relationships, sexuality,

business, motherhood and the environment and will explore ways to slow down and live in a life that supports more harmonious relationships and connections. Tickets cost $25. Kingscliff Performing Arts will open the day with a fantastic dance performance. With the huge success of shows such as So You Think You Can Dance, School Principal Kristy Godfrey is keen to show that dancing is for everyone and her performance dancers will get the day off to a vibrant start. Nationally acclaimed performer Andrea Szabo will lead a lineup of women who will entertain guests with a number of singing and musical performances throughout the day. Visit www.wholewoman.com.au for full Festival and workshop details. Childcare is being provided by the accredited Kids Club from 10am to 4pm Saturday and Sunday. Cost is $5 per child which includes mini-jumping castle, face painting, art and craft. Booking essential.

interview EMPIRE OF THE SONS The Cat Empire make their welcome return to Bluesfest, the event they credit with breaking their sound onto the mainstream market. Harry the falsetto singing trumpet player gave me a few minutes of his time to talk about stuff like the new album: ‘It’s just more songs – I guess it’s better, bigger, more exciting then everything I have done before.’ Alright, that line of questioning isn’t going to work. So how does Harry keep up with the momentum of The Cat Empire, let alone have time to set up another outfit like Jackson Jackson? ‘I am a lazy person – I know how to latch on to the right people... I think it’s really important to play the music you want to play. I think there is right and wrong reasons for playing music, music and music business are quite different entities.’ The boys from TCE come from a jazz background, but their foray into pop culture has seen them move away from a more purist sound. ‘It’s funny me and Ollie had a free jazz jam the other day and I realised I could barely remember how to do it.’ ‘Although I think it’s always a matter of repetition – you are better at doing the thing that you do the most. In between the well known songs and the well-known bits there are sections of improvised music, maybe for whatever reason the audience may have never heard a 10 minute organ solo before, but we give em a chance to.’ Although no one is going to play a 10 minute organ solo on the radio. Harry agrees with some disdain. ‘Let’s just say it would be nice to have some people with more vision, or more risk taking in the pop scene.’ The band have been playing huge stages both here and overseas. In fact they draw such huge crowds there’s not really enough venues

to house them here. They have no choice but to expand into an overseas market. At this year’s Woodford Festival The Cat Empire bounced about 20 000 kids in the mud. My 12 year old daughter was amongst them – and that night she learnt some important lessons about the mosh pit, like don’t take your brand new $400 digital camera out and give it to someone else because they will drop it. All she has from her Christmas Camera is a 3 minute recording of The Cat Empire. ‘I think the whole band has a real soft spot for oodford, its a fairly unique festival – and we feel the same about the Blues and Roots – it was our first Bluesfest gig that people say launched our career outside of Melbourne. We were fairly unknown and no-one had heard of us and all of a sudden there was this buzz where we played to people all around the East Coast. There is a lot of energy in those big concerts, the crowd is a lot further away – you probably feel a lot more energy - there is nothing quite like the feeling of finishing the song on a big stage and hearing the cheer come up’ As for TCE at this year’s Bluesfest: ‘We will do what we do every year, cane the fuck out of it.’ For more information about Bluesfest: www.bluesfest.com.au

#&"54/#014 SPIRIT CATCHER The duo’s music sounds something like this: Minimal Tech Trance Electro stirred with Funk and Disco. The production is so sophisticated it reveals two Belgium nerds. Jean Vanesse and Thomas Sohet are about to re-‘futurize’ Disco. ‘Modern disco music is probably the best way to describe our music. We are both very influenced by the Disco and Electro-Funk from end of the seventies, beginning of the eighties. We like to mix old analogue gear from this period with new modern technologies, it ‘futurizes’ the past very well.’ Q: True or false Jean, were you born in a studio or not, and what was your mother doing in a studio at the time of your birth?! A: ‘Not at all! In fact this bio is written and completely imagined by a crazy friend of us. We wanted to avoid the classical boring biography with a ‘non-exhaustive’ list of label names, track’s titles,

all famous venues where we played and blah blah blah…’ Q: Jean’s father owned a recording studio though right? A: ‘Yes, he recorded a lot of jazz bands from Belgium. It was nice to meet all the musicians during the recording sessions. I remember there was always a good vibe at the house.’ Q: What’s the story of Jean and Thomas? A: ‘We met each other in a Sound Engineer high school in Brussels/Belgium. We just became friends, talking about keyboards and stuff like that. So we just got together and started making music for some ‘studio practice works’ for school.’ Q: Who does what when you’re composing in the studio? A: ‘We want to share the studio work together as much as possible but we have both our own strengths: I’m the producer, I try to maximize each idea to get

the most efficient result possible. Thomas is the musician. He’s playing keyboards and bringing the human and wild touch into our tracks. Most of the time, we have the same vision about how to produce Spirit Catcher’s tracks. I can tell you much more about that but we cannot write a book... we keep this option for our old years.’ Q: Is this your first time in Australia? A: ‘In fact, that will be our second time in Oz. We played at ‘We Love Sound Festival’ in Sydney, Brisbane and Melbourne during last winter and a couple of sideshows around the country.’ Q: What other artists rock your box of late? A ‘We’re really into Joris Voorn’s stuff for the moment. Deadmau5’s productions are always killing too!!! This guy has gold in his hands!!!’ Q: Voo Doo Knight Live, one of my favourite tracks of yours features Michael Jackson’s Thriller lyrics, have you done remixes or have you got remixes in the pipeline? A: ‘Thanks, it’s one of my favourite too. In fact we play a completely re-worked

version of Voo Doo Knight during our live show. Our Spanish friends from Wagon Cookin did a great remix too!!! The release date is for mid March I think...‘ Q: Are you both DJ-ing as well as doing live-sets? A: ‘We have two different versions of our show. A version where we play both live, we’re on stage with lots of analogue gear and we play only Spirit Catcher tracks. The other version is called ‘Decks, FX and Keyboards’ where I’m deejaying and Thomas adds keyboards and FX to my set. With this version we can be more flexible and play in smaller clubs/venues. It’s an interesting experience also as it is more improvised. Each set is 100% different from the previous one.

For girls and boys who want to flirt with boys in wigs there’s SOLID GOLD this Saturday at the Great Northern. ‘Yep, we’ll be playing those 70s and 80s classics you love, and the dancers will be a blur of Lycra and leg-warmers, but for the very first time we’ll be joined by a soul diva live on stage’. Chanteuse Miss Foxy P. (aka Dusky Melons), that is. And it doesn’t end there, the night is wig wam packed with performances from the Solid Gold dancers and DJ Mr. Trent Hardache, apparently a dashing beau delivering an hour of power in an all star line-up along with Gopher Gold and Rock Solid. www. solidgolddisco.com Getting there early is usually too late, get your tickets now from the Great Northern or www.byronbayentertainment.com

Television Guide The commercial channels are offering three very different movie genres on Friday in the 8.30pm slot. 1. Prime has The Day After Tomorrow where, as in many recent SF flicks, the weather has taken over as villain from extraterrestrial aliens. 2. Hugh Grant makes a most unlikely prime minister in the romantic comedy Love Actually, a Richard Curtis confection on Channel Ten. 3. Fans of shoot’em up action get Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie in Mr & Mrs Smith on Nine, a movie marred by a plot even more farfetched than the other two.

>>>CINEM A... INDESTRUCTIBLE Technology has made movies easier to make these days. It’s a good thing too, for there are many stories worthy of being told that do not interest studios’ bean counters. Ben Byer was a bear-like, ordinary bloke, living an ordinary life in Wisconsin when diagnosed in his thirties with what is sometimes referred to as Lou Gehrig’s Disease, after the American baseballer. An irreversible motor neurone affliction, its cause is unknown (though just last week Australian scientists announced findings that might bring this understanding a step closer), and it is incurable. What it does is slowly, usually over a period of two to five years, shut down all muscular workings of the body. This challenging, exhausting but ultimately enriching documentary looks at how Ben confronted his illness, how he tried to make sense of it and how he

fought it with a rare spirit to the last. It is a phenomenal testament to his courage. The disease has already taken its toll when we meet Ben. His speech is a little slurred and his movements laboured. He laughs and plays with his young son, but in his eyes there is fear and incomprehension. ‘Why did this happen to me?’ they ask. It is the infuriating question that can never be answered for Ben, or any of us. With staunch support from his family, notably father Steve, who accompanies him on his quests with the unseen cameraman, Roko Belic, he travels the world in search of new treatments and, as significantly, in the hope of calming his troubled soul. From Greece to China, from Jamaica, where through cannabis he at least is provided with some relief of his symptoms, to Israel and the Jewish faith that he abandoned twenty years earlier. Above all else, this

film looks at our species’ stubborn unwillingness to accept death. Tolstoy’s ‘the embarrassment of dying’ is alluded to and Oliver Sachs, in conversation with Ben, observes that people’s tendency to recoil from his type of condition is a taught one, that it is not present in children. Philosophising will only get him so far though, as Ben’s inner journey is beyond words. He sheds tears at his dumb fate, but he maintains a capacity to keep smiling ‘til the end, which is poetically dealt with. Inspiring too is the long, long list of donors who kicked in to support the project. Screening on Saturday as part of the Byron Bay Film Festival. ~ John Campbell

THE KITE RUNNER No matter where we go, no matter what we become, the past always catches up with us. There are three chapters in Marc Foster’s adaptation of Khaled Hosseini’s best selling book. First up, in Afghanistan before the Soviet invasion, there is the childhood friendship of wealthy Amir and Hassan, the Hazzari house boy. They take part in the beautifully filmed kite festival, speak from memory the lines of Charles Bronson in ‘The Magnificent Seven’ and carve their names in the bark of a pommegranite tree. Their idyll is shattered when Amir witnesses Hassan’s rape by bullies but is too scared to intervene. Amir’s shame is carried with him into adulthood, and the movie evolves into a story about exile, as he and Baba, his father, make their way in America. The final metamorphosis comes when Foster shunts proceedings into action mode and Amir returns to his homeland, now FULLY AIR-CONDITIONED EVERY WEDNESDAY ALL SEATS ALL SESSIONS $8 ONLY

benighted by the Taliban, to rescue Hassan’s son. At this point your suspension of disbelief might come under strain, depending upon your taste for melodrama. Sentiment is the bête noire of today’s professional aesthetes (how they would have crucified Dickens) and you know that when any work of art is described as sentimental, as ‘The Kite Runner’ unarguably is, that it is not being praised for that quality. But for mine, the trick is in not overdoing it. Foster gets close to the precipice and is not exactly subtle when pulling on the heartstrings, but the film’s integrity remains unsullied. The strongest character is Baba, played impeccably by Homayoun Ershadi. An educated liberal, he is also a man of traditional moral certitude who is disappointed by his son’s lack of steel. It’s a trait that you feel Amir never really overcomes - even when he eventually does put his life on the line, his fate is determined by others - and is an unusual weakness in a protagonist. Maybe it’s because of rather than despite this that the movie works for, as the boy says when reciting a poem, ‘who are we in this complicated world?’ Visually there are a number of memorable scenes, from the horrendous stoning of a woman to the joyous wedding of Amir and Soroya. It is inclined to ramble and sometimes creak under the load that it has taken onboard, but sagas are like that. Most rewarding for its sweet sadness. ~ John Campbell

And Depp is simply stupendous. He’s not Pavarotti and doesn’t try to be, but his light baritone has clarity, timbre and emotive power. Depp erases the line between singing and acting, fusing them into something that keeps the movie blazing.’ ~ Peter Travers

WWWLUSCIOUSFOODSCOM



Victoria Cosford I am in my element. Here I am talking to a man who makes cheese for his living, a man whose life revolves around one of my absolutely favourite foods. Justin Telfer and I are sitting in cafe one one one â&#x20AC;&#x201C; a ďŹ tting venue given chef Jade Campbell-Scottâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s fondness for showcasing and utilising specialty cheeses in his dishes (I occasionally dream about his kipďŹ&#x201A;er potatoes oozey with Heidi gruyere). We actually met last year at the Kyogle Degustation Dinner where we were seated opposite each other and where he told me his plans to set up his own cheesemaking company. And here he is now having done it. The Bangalow Cheese Companyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s cheeses are currently being sold at the Byron Farmersâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; Market though will soon be available at the Bangalow one as well. Justin describes the response to them on his ďŹ rst market day as â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;overwhelmingâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;: he brought along 80 and sold every single one within the ďŹ rst hour, and the following week he sold out again. It was a circuitous route for a Townsville-born boy who at the age of 21 was studying musical theatre at the Perth Academy of Performing Arts. A horse accident put an abrupt end to that; during the resultant six months of short- term memory loss he â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;rethought his lifeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;, abandoned the notion of performing arts and got a job at a casino. Next move was to Melbourne where for ten more years he continued working in the casino, eventually being promoted to manager in the VIP Room. A combination, however, of job demands, house, mortgage and stiďŹ&#x201A;ing city existence left him with a yearning for a regional life, and so once more he submitted himself to self-scrutiny and came up with a possible means of employment, which was cheesemaking. He has always loved cheese. He recalls that in his extremely food-conscious family he would demand camembert of his mother, a precocious eight year old dismissive of the standard supermarket excuses for cheese. And so he began to do courses. At Melbourne University he met one of the chief authorities on cheese education, dairy consultant Neil Willman, who eventually offered him a job as his assistant. There were intensive short courses, intensive theory courses, courses on farmhouse cheeses, on setting up businesses, there were Research and Development projects. After three years there was no turning back: Justin was committed.

Following a brief stint in a small Melbourne cheese factory and a joyless couple of years in Sydney, he moved up to the Far North Coast where he miraculously landed a little cheese factory in Corndale to lease. He considers the cheesemaking conditions up here to be perfect: I express surprise that there are not more small cheesemakers around in such lush, fertile dairy country and he agrees â&#x20AC;&#x201C; though reminds me about Paul Wilson the goatsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; cheese maker (who is apparently only a few weeks away from being ready to start selling his cheese). His is a one-man show â&#x20AC;&#x201C; with occasional input from his partner. Several days a week he will put in 12-14 hours creating cheese from the mixture of Jersey and Friesian milk he procures from the Woodlawn Dairy cows. I ask him if the process of cheesemaking is more science than art and he believes it is a combination of both; that his own personal creativity is expressed through the particular signature he will stamp on to his cheeses, a playing around with the various ďŹ&#x201A;ora in the mixes, assorted experimentations which will often result in exciting batches. Because he is only interested in a natural product he does not stabilise the milk; seasonal variations will produce ďŹ&#x201A;avour ďŹ&#x201A;uctuations from batch to batch. He hopes eventually to have a factory with a cellar door and a small cafĂŠ, so that people can come for tastings and he will be even more free to continue experimenting and creating, as well as educating and expanding public awareness of all the varieties. Justin can be found at the Byron Farmersâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; Market on Thursday mornings, or contacted on 6629 1888.

COOKING CLASSES Thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s an exciting range of cooking classes coming up, for those who feel they have inadequate skills or who simply enjoy the social aspect of meeting new people and wish to widen their culinary repertoires. During the month of March there is Northern Italian and Camembert Cheese Making on offer at the Bangalow Cooking School in the A & I Hall, with places still available (call 6687 2799) â&#x20AC;&#x201C; while in Byron Bay chef and food consultant Igor Persan will be teaching French techniques in a series of classes which include sauces, ďŹ sh and seafood, and the traditional dish Bouillabaisse. He can be contacted on 0409 041 884 for further details.

home, family and base of operations by improving living arrangements, getting rid of excess and taking care of overdue paperwork. While sudden changes may be unsettling, sensitivity in expressing those strong opinions is recommended. CAPRICORN: While Capricorns operate well on the material plane, this month’s about up close and personal self expression. Which makes a certain amount of conflict inevitable this week, but don’t waste it – use the opportunity to move your private life to a more satisfying level. AQUARIUS: March is a month of moods and easily upset feelings, but Mercury and Venus in Aquarius are on your side for another week. Then it’s all about personal economy and finances, which will benefit from a disciplined, orderly, systematic approach on your part. PISCES: A go ahead time of constructive progress for Pisceans, this month assists confident decisions and new projects. Mars livens up the home zone, but take care feelings don’t get out of hand during Friday’s difficult conditions, which need handling with extreme care.

nobody does it better® By the end of this month – the busiest in the history of Australian chess – the makeup of the 2008 Australian Olympic team should be much clearer. Next weekend sees the 42nd edition of the Begonia Open in Ballarat. Few will tip against Stephen Solomon consolidating his place in the Olympic team since he has won five of the last six Begonia Opens. Over Easter Canberra will host the biggest event of the year, the O2C Doeberl Cup. The Premier group, including 10 grandmasters has been full for weeks, but with four supplementary tournaments for players of all strengths plus live commentary on the grandmasters’ games, the Doeberl Cup (www.doeberl cup.com.au) should appeal to chess fans as much as the professionals.

remaking into something functional. If that sounds too dull, the good news is love is in the air and of course you’re in for the lion’s share. VIRGO: With this month’s emphasis on partnerships and teamwork, cooperation’s the Virgo catchword. Your practical talents are so much in demand this week that business is vigorous, your social life’s going off and don’t forget a balance of purely personal, private delights. LIBRA: Health and practical organization are the Libran biggies right now – not as pedestrian as it sounds with your boss goddess Venus in the sign of doing things differently. This week’s unpredictable, so make the most of what comes and the least of what goes. SCORPIO: Mars aspects should make March a happy month for the Scorpio born, and this a creatively stimulating week showcasing both your executive abilities and your affectionate side in a gratifying leader of the pack scenario.

Open immediately follows the Doeberl Cup and will bring world class chess to Parramatta for a second year – a record 12 grandmasters are expected. Both the Doeberl Cup and the SIO will give Australian players chances to scores International Master and Grandmaster results; one such outstanding result could be enough to give any one of half a dozen players – from George Xie to Moulthun Ly – an Olympic place. The battle for places in the Australian women’s team should also be fascinating, with a younger generation challenging the established Olympians, some of whom have barely moved a pawn in anger since the 2006 Turin Olympiad.

TAURUS: March is your month for getting out and about. Social contacts, community projects and meeting new people are all likely to be sources of information, creative stimulation and financial opportunity so schmooze, cruise and don’t be shy about approaching someone who could help you. GEMINI: This month’s stars activate your occupational area, with a financial boost, lucky break or assistance from a mentor likely. Your ability to adapt to changing circumstances blitzes it in the business world, but willingness to listen patiently is necessary in the private sector. CANCER: With this month pressing Cancerian education and travel buttons it’s time for formulating long range plans, or rethinking them. Assertive Mars moving into Crab castle stirs up personal issues and emotional exchanges – try not to get too defensive during Friday’s sensitive and unsettling atmospherics.

Nine year old Abbey Lang is very pleased with herself after unexpectadly winning the Age Championship prize for junior girls at the recent Tweed Zone Catholic Primary Schools Swimming Championships. Abbey, who is in year 5 at St John’s in Mullumbimby, performed well at her school carnival last year, winning all her events including freestyle, breaststroke, backstroke and butterfly and the individual medley. For her stellar effort she was awarded the Junior Girls Champion prize. A bundle of jumping beans, Abbey is also a competition dancer and cross country runner, who found that she was placed in slower heats at the Tweed zone event due to her previous times. Even so, she still produced great results with a win in the butterfly final, a second place in the breaststroker final and 4th place in the freestyle, backstroke and individual medley finals. Abbey and mum Michelle were surprised when they were preparing to leave the event, to hear Abbey’s name being called over the PA system announcing she had won the Age Champion medal for the event.

‘I was so excited and happy,’ said Abbey. ‘I wasn’t expecting them to call my name. I couldn’t believe it!’ Michelle attributes Abbey’s win to the great support from her school and Abbey’s coach Adrian Filipic from Ocean Shores Aquatics. ‘Abbey just loves her training sessions. Adrian gives the kids a lot of feedback and constructive criticism. He came to the event to watch his kids swim. He is very supportive and has been great travelling to the Byron pool to train the kids as he is no longer able to coach at the Mullum pool,’ said Michelle Abbey has been swimming

competitively for two years and her mother says that her original swimming teacher was surprised when Abbey swam freestyle before she could dog paddle. Abbey and three of her classmates, Brittany McDonald, Ela Heiniger and Isaac King were the only students from St John’s to advance to the next level. Either her class was born in the year of the fish or there is something in the water in the year five room. The quartet will compete again this afternoon at the Lismore Diocesan Championships at Banora Point, The Echo will publish the results next week.

what is most important is what is going on in your head, not actual reality. ‘Believe’, a film about dreams, started as a dream, and the people in it are living theirs. They are doing what comes naturally without too much thought or contrived ideas. They do what they do every day, with knowledge gained from past experience or from some older teacher. It doesn’t matter where the knowledge has come from, as long as the past is acknowledged. The struggle to make ends meet, to juggle the demands of family life, limited finances and steep learning curves, is all part of the process. I guess they do what they’ve learnt and feels right and are accountable to themself, the past, and that becomes their future. Believe, a film by Mick Waters, has been nominated for ‘Best Surf Film’ at the Byron Bay Film Festival.

Abbey Lang wins age champ twice

will be well represented next weekend when the under 19s boat crew heads to Blacksmiths Beach just south of Newcastle, to compete in the 2008 New South Wales Surf Life Saving Championships to be held at the Swansea Belmont SLSC. The team, headed by sweep Stewart White, has performed well considering the age of the rowers and the recent change to the lineup. Even though members Sam Martin and Trent Richardson are still only sixteen years old, the team won their event at the recent Branch Championships held at Main Beach Byron Bay. Making up the team Sam Condie and newest member Dean Richardson will compete in a round robin series on Saturday and if they are in the top group will compete again on Sunday in the finals.

Backlash Congratulations and best wishes to Russell Eldridge, who retired as editor of the Northern Star last week after being with the paper since 1984, and a journalist since 1971. Something of a radical cog in the conservative APN management wheel, Russell stuck to his guns on political and social issues, and has contributed much to the community through theatre and his work with the Northern Rivers Writers Centre. Now he takes on a far more perilous task – writing a novel! QQQQ Wouldn’t you know it? The very day we went to press and announced council elections as on September 27, local government minister Paul Lynch changed it to September 13, so it wouldn’t clash with the school holidays. See more at www.elections.nsw.gov.au. Think about it carefully if you plan to run for Council – it’s no bed of roses. QQQQ And it’s goodbye to Council general manager Pamela Westing, who’s probably happy to go out on a high with the Telstra site auction. An acting general manager from staff ranks will be on duty from March 10 until a new GM is appointed. QQQQ Oops! Further to a story last week, Byron Bay High School is still (most gratefully) receiving proceeds from car parking from Blues Fest organisers, however, given the change of venue this year the income from car parking is undetermined. The school has, however, been delighted to receive a donation of $3000 from the recently completed Beach Suites in Bay Street, Byron Bay. The money will go towards further funding of the Gaining the Edge pro-

gram, which tutors Year 12 students in English skills. QQQQ It’s amazing how things go missing – Byron Ratepayers Association (BRA) chair John Bailey swears he gave copies of a petition on the Splendour DA to Council staff the week before last to pass on to Councillors but under questioning from Cr Lazarus at last week’s meeting Mayor Jan Barham said she had never seen it. As well as no contact on the Splendour issue, Mr Bailey says he hasn’t been able to interest the mayor in the drug and alcohol forum BRA is organising – see more at www.byronbaydrugandalcoholforum.com. QQQQ Graham McCallum from the Citizens Electoral Council was doing okay during public access with a request to Council for in principle support for a petition to the House of Reps until some of the councillors read the Lyndon LaRouche propaganda presented to them. ‘Environmentalists are insane,’ the pamphlet noted, ‘and acting
