Woolworths protest meeting targets impact of big dollars on small town Story & photo Lou Beaumont A community information meeting held at St Johns Hall, Mullumbimby, last Saturday, updated and informed over 200 community members on the development plans for Woolworths in Mullumbimby. Byron Shire Council’s planning director Ray Darney answered questions and clarified rumours as best he could. The questions and responses can be found at the Mullumbimby Community Action Network website, As for rumours that Woolworths would move into the existing Mallam’s supermarket site in the town centre if the Station Street site wasn’t viable, Woolworths spokesperson Luke Schepen told The Echo, ‘There are no plans at this time surrounding the existing Mallams site. We remain committed to bringing the Station Street site to fruition.’ There were also concerns that Woolies had purchased the two pubs in town. Woolworths told The Echo that this was not the case. The meeting was also a platform for passionate voices on the subject of multinational intrusion into a community that is self sufficient and proud of it. A panel spoke of the consequences of such a development, rousing those gathered and raising new concerns. John Dolman, manager of Santos Trading, spoke on the undeniable impact to the local economy and made no apologies for being against Woolworths coming to town. Dolman said, ‘A development like this will fragment our town and the great feeling we have in our town centre. ‘All the effort that Mullum has made, and is making, to create community can be wiped out just like that. Local businesses are here to serve community and create a common wealth. At a time when more than ever we need to build

resilience and strength in our community, we are instead under attack by a monolithic business. ‘When we look at the local multiplier effect [where money spent locally stays local, circulating among local businesses] we can compare our shopping options. At an estimate, about 0.8% of a dollar spent at Woolworths would remain in this community. Compare that to 30-40 cents of each dollar at Santos, and closer to 90 cents per dollar at a farmer’s market. To me the decision is clear and I personally want to live in a community where we are supporting each other.’ Rose Wanchap, Director of Red Rose Realty, spoke of the potential changes to the real estate market and the need to be wary of hidden agendas on the part of the developers. She said, ‘Big corporations will almost always have a bigger picture agenda behind a development of this kind. ‘Usually a supermarket such as

this will be put up where the corporation believes there to be an imminent influx in the local population, and of course, the only way to ensure such an influx is to increase residential development in the area. As a network you must stay focused on the bigger story behind all of this and pull together.’ Kali Wendorf, social ecologist and editor of Kindred magazine, spoke passionately about the impact Woolworths would have on the social fabric of our community. She said, ‘This is not a done deal yet. It is so important that we fight this. We can change the course of Mullum’s destiny if we want to. ‘Small businesses play such a vital role in the feeling of connection children experience within a town such as ours. Children thrive on connection and the opposite is true of growing up in a fragmented and depersonalised place. ‘Children are the canaries in the societal coalmine. Each one of us,

through our children, will experience the symptoms of a multinational in our otherwise diverse and personal town. Our local supermarkets and businesses invest back into our community and sustain our children’s futures. A market driven economy on the other hand, of which Woolworths is a part, will only stimulate disconnection and associated problems such as dropping out of school, binge drinking, eating disorders, ADD, depression, unemployment and allergies. Our children’s wellbeing is at risk here.’ Helena Norberg-Hodge, founder and director of ISEC (International Society for Ecology & Culture), who has been researching and speaking about the negative effects of globalisation over localisation for years, addressed community members on her niche subject. She said, ‘We exist today in an unfair playing field. Butter from a neighbouring farm costs continued on page 2

Council refutes financial loss report Byron Shire Council has refuted a report in The Sydney Morning Herald that Council has lost $6.9m because of the sub-prime market meltdown ‘It is disappointing that these comments have been made as they are misleading and do not tell the full story of each council’s individual circumstances,’ said acting general manager Phil Warner in a press release. ‘Byron Shire Council is not exposed to the sub-prime market and while many investments have a current market value less than the purchase price, these investments are long-term and are expected to mature at face value, with no impact on ratepayers. ‘In March Council reported its investment portfolio balances for the end of February, highlighting a current market value of $52.2 million as against the principal invested of $56.2 million. The $4 million difference consisted of $2.6m exposure to the equity markets and $1.4m exposure to the credit markets. ‘Council’s exposure to the equity markets is capital protected which means that if held to maturity, as proposed, the full amount of the principal invested will be returned to Council. The exposure to the credit markets does not include sub-prime and will return to full value as it approaches maturity date. ‘While these products are not capital protected, the investments held at Byron Shire Council are expected to reach full value at maturity. In the meantime Council will continue to receive interest payments on its investments. ‘The maturity dates for Council investments range from 2008 to 2014. Council is not exposed to longer maturity dates such as 2047 referred to in the article. ‘Ratepayers can be assured that there will be no rate increases or reduced ability to provide infrastructure as referred to by Mr Costa,’ Mr Warner said.

Councillor’s car rammed

Byron Shire Councillor Tom Tabart outside council offices with his rammed Subaru. Cr Tabart happened to witness the car being rammed on Monday last week outside his home in Brunswick Heads. A vehicle, which he described as an early model blue Toyota Corolla (now sporting a white smear of paint) with green P plates, crossed over double lines on the old Pacific Highway and crashed into the councillor’s car before speeding off. Cr Tabart believes the ramming is indirectly politically motivated, suspecting a couple of local hoons heard their elders disparaging the Greens councillor and took decisive action. Police are investigating, and Cr Tabart is not intimidated. Photo Jeff ‘Autorobotic’ Dawson

more to local shoppers than butter from 10,000 miles away. Local producers, local communities, and local economies are being marginalised due to government subsidies of big businesses – they subsidise transport infrastructure and technologies required by big retailers bringing the price of the end product right down.’ At the start of the meeting, when clarifying when Council last met with Woolworths, Mr Darney said that Mayor Jan Barham had suggested to Woolworths that they consider an alternative buying option that would allow local produce to be stocked in the supermarket. During question time at the information meeting,

Cr Peter Westheimer raised this idea again as an option to support if the supermarket giant did make it to town. Helena NorbergHodge responded by explaining that local producers would be marginalised nonetheless as the local produce in the supermarket would, as well as being limited, have to be priced so much higher than produce sourced from usual suppliers to Woolies. Ms Norberg-Hodge added, ‘We are in climate chaos, and human beings are not doing so well in the society of today. This is very urgent, but there is good news as people are waking up to the issues at hand. ‘We must strengthen local community by supporting opportunities for growers in our region to diversify. Peo-

ple need to know that by buying local they directly help bring down the cost of local produce while simultaneously increasing the money that returns to the producer.’ So what now? Is Woolworths in Mullumbimby a done deal or not? The town of Eurobodalla near Bateman’s Bay stopped Woolworths in their tracks and the MCAN believe it to be just as possible for Mullumbimby. Deborah Lilly of the MCAN told The Echo, ‘We now know the rezoning of the Station Street site has not gone through yet and that Woolies intend to wait for the town’s sewage upgrade so we still have time to ďŹ ght.’ The MCAN is looking for legal support and ďŹ nancial backing in order to investigate their options in making Mullumbimby a less viable option for the supermarket. All agreed at the meeting that the converted were present and that it was the indifferent

‘fence sitters’ that needed to be addressed and informed. MCAN and supporters believe that once members of the community are properly informed of the impact Woolies will have on every level of local society as well as global climate, there will be no-one left sitting on the fence watching the development take place. The MCAN is determined not to let this be a lesson we have to learn the hard way. To join them, call Deborah Lilly on 6684 3723 or go to their website and view their strategy at Incidentally, Woolworths offered to send a representative to the information meeting to give a ‘Woolwor th’s per spective’. MCAN declined their offer at this time, with Deborah Lilly telling The Echo, ‘We felt that the purpose of the meeting was to inform the community re the effects of such a development and we felt that a Woolies presence would cause confusion.’

Vandals smash Bruns shop windows Story & photo Eve Jeffery Peta and Matt Mayall got the nasty surprise when they turned up for work in Brunswick Heads on Saturday. At some time in the early hours of the morning, vandals had smashed the front window of their café, Cino Bambino in Mullumbimbi Street. Even though the café had an alarm, the first the couple knew of the damage was when they arrived to open up. ‘They only smashed the window,’ said Peta who with husband Matt opened the café two months ago. ‘If they had come any further into the shop the alarm would have gone off. We had no idea anything was amiss until we got here at eight o’clock this morning.’ Cino Bambino wasn’t the only business in town to be damaged. Windows at The Happy Dolphin and The Professionals real estate were also smashed, as well as some minor external damage to other businesses in the CBD. This is the second time in the space of a few weeks that there has been this type of destruction in Brunswick Heads and the recent history in town has done nothing to calm the nerves of residents who feel that local

youth have the run of the town. Matt Mayall said that one of his customers, a resident at the caravan park, had heard the disturbance during the night and had been too scared to go to the toilet for fear of what might be outside her door. The other problem the businesses had to deal with was trying to find someone to repair the damage. Phone calls were made and messages left at several local

glass repairers and after receiving no response, the windows were finally replaced by a glazier who after five hours travel through heavy traffic from Nambour, was able to fix the damage. Cino Bambino was unable to trade on Saturday apart from takeaway coffee but Peta said that the response from the locals was fantastic. The café has a crawling baby on staff whose safety was paramount during the clean up. ‘It

was really hard trying to sweep up glass and look after Charlie. Everyone was wonderful having turns taking him for a walk in his pram while Matt and I dealt with the mess.’ Police at this stage have no definite idea of who the vandals may be, though there were traces of blood left at the scene which can be used for DNA testing. Police are hoping that anyone who may have witnessed the rampage will come forward.

Ocean Shores waits on ripple strip report Ocean Shores residents living near the Brunswick to Yelgun section of the Pacific Highway will continue to be subjected to excessive road noise from ripple strips while the Minister for Roads undertakes another report. ‘It would seem contradictory to most to put ripple strip devices that cause maximum noise, similar to machine gun burst, when struck by the tyres to a special low noise road surface,’ said Greens MP Ian Cohen in a parliamentary question to the Minister.

‘The logic of acknowledging an area as highly noise sensitive then installing these ripple strips to create maximum noise is revealing. The Minister for Roads Eric Roozendaal isn’t convinced and requires report after report to be told the obvious. ‘The RTA was directed back in October 2007 to establish a noise monitoring program to evaluate the noise levels at the site. Six months later the Minister is still floundering with promises of reports and

more reports. ‘What is most concerning is that the Minister failed to commit to noise mitigation works even if the report demonstrates that the audible edge lines are causing noise exceeding the approved criteria for the project.’ ‘Merely considering noise mitigation works, as the

Minister stated he would do, translates to burying an adverse report evidencing excessive noise levels into the archives. ‘The Minister needs to make a firm commitment to the Ocean Shores residents that the RTA will comply with the noise levels approved for the project.’

Good cause for boys and their toys Story & photo Eve Jeffery Now that the Brunswick Valley U3A have their Menshed, they are getting down to the business of repairing and creating several projects for the benefit of the community. Currently the boys are working on different designs for a novelty book shelf that could be used in libraries and other situations that cater for young readers. The basic chassis on wheels was designed by Gerry Gibson and can be made to accommodate a train, boat, car or any number of mobile vehicles. Having made a successful choo choo the fellow’s next unit will be an MG with the books running along the bonnet. Many of the men who belong to the group are grandfathers, so there was much discussion about design ideas with the aim of creating something that would appeal to the very early reading experience of the 2 to 3 year old age group.

How Old are You REALLY? Tracey Lee Morley

Alf, Mick, Ian, Rod and Bruce with the prototype train which is stationed at the Bruns library.

The staff at the Brunswick Heads library also has some design ideas that were a great help in the finished product including a ‘skylight’ in the roof so that the reader can see while in the driver’s seat. Shed owner Bruce Mitchell is pleased with the final product and is happy to see his space put to such good

use. ‘We are in a good spot here,’ says Bruce, ‘It’s in a quiet area and the neighbours can’t hear us.’ ‘This is not a mass production line. We are just about making a few items for the community and doing a few small repairs.’ The train, which took about three sessions to build,

was constructed mainly from materials donated by the men from the shed and has been stationed at the Brunswick Heads library for the past week and has already created interest for tots. Children can ride the library train in Bruns on weekdays 10am-5pm and Saturdays 9am-noon.

Bruns Hotel sponsors visitor centre The Brunswick Visitor Centre, which has been operating since 2006, has experienced a financial setback. Despite lack of funding from Council, the centre has blossomed over the last two years into a five to six day per week operation with the assistance of a Work for the Dole Program through Ballina BETC, as well as a dedicated band of community volunteers and goodwill from various community groups and businesses. However, the BETC Work for the Dole program and funding has been recently halved due to decreases in the number of participant referrals through the system. This setback has meant that some stopgap funding or sponsorship and extra volunteer energy and com-

munity goodwill is required in the short term to maintain the services that are being offered. The Hotel Brunswick, which is a generous supporter of many local community organisations and sponsor of community events, has offered to assist with a substantial sponsorship contribution to keep the visitor centre open. This funding will be used to assist with covering the running costs of the visitor centre until other income producing initiatives take off or grants sourced. According to its press release, ‘The Visitor Centre is the engine room for community projects and capacity building, including community events, town website development, activity directories, grant sourcing, “buy

local” initiatives, Simple Pleasures merchandise and the showcasing of locally made products. ‘The centre also provides the only tourism information service for the town and its family oriented visitors, who are welcomed by our friendly staff and volunteers, and encouraged to experience our laidback village lifestyle and values and share the simple pleasures that we have on offer in Bruns.’

New volunteers and program participants are being sought to join the existing team to share their knowledge and love of Bruns with visitors and at the same time have the opportunity to sharpen up or learn new computer or admin skills. If you can spare a few hours a week please contact Carol on 66851003 or email info@ or pop into the Visitor Centre on Thursdays.

“Dear Tracey, I am writing to thank you for all your wonderful care and attention over the last 12 months. My first VLA test was a wake up call when it showed that my cells were ageing about 10 years older than my birth age! I was shocked as most people thought I looked younger than my 57 years and I thought that I had always eaten well and been proactive with my health. I knew I was carrying excess weight around the middle area of my body but had always been able to dress as to appear thinner. I was becoming increasingly frustrated trying to lose weight as I was eating less and less and still putting on more weight! This is where Tracey’s program become so revolutionary to me as I was able to feel more satisfied and yet I managed to lose 8kgs of body fat and more importantly have kept it off for over 6 months now. Not only have I lost a lot of weight but I feel more energetic and my whole quality of life has improved. I would urge anybody who is serious about creating wellbeing for themselves to try Tracey Lee Morley’s clinic and programs – they will give you a new lease on life. Thanks again. Kind regards Pamela Wright” Pam Wright: ‘I lost 8kg and feel more energetic and my whole quality of life has improved.’ Read Pam’s story online.

Writersfest keeps eye on the media The Byron Bay Writers Festival is maintaining a weather eye on the role of the media and its impact on our reading and thinking. Said director Jeni Caffin, ‘With the coverage of the 2007 federal election and the continuing focus on the US political juggernaut, we have been bombarded with all manner of media and opinion journalism has never been stronger. We have invited a handful of Australia’s significant media analysts, writers and journalists to contribute to the program and I am delighted with the response. ‘ABC Radio’s Geraldine Doogue will provide an authoritative voice from the chair when she engages in a dialogue on The Longest Decade: fifteen years of Australian politics, with Sydney Morning Herald journalist Ross Gittins, Professor

Alan McKee, author of The Porn Report.

Brendan Gleeson, The Australian’s resident nitpicker George Megalogenis and Mungo MacCallum. This will be an energetic dissection of Australian politics and analysis of the forces that shape Australia today.

‘This will be George Megalogenis’ first visit to the Festival. I eagerly read his journalism and his blog and love his command of language and historical fact. Look out for his sessions.’ Much in the public eye at present is The Porn Report, a down to earth and no holds barred look at pornography, who consumes it and why. Co-author Alan McKee has written widely about popular culture, including reality television and is a respected commentator both here and in the United Kingdom. He will be joined by Princesses and Pornstars author Emily Maguire and Southern Cross University Associate Professor of Media Studies, Karen Brooks, to examine the role models presented to kids today, the prevalence of bitch culture and of course, the ethics of

pornography. Karen Brooks has just released her own landmark book, Consuming Innocence, which is a bold exploration of the role of parents versus popular culture in determining the way in which children define and model themselves. Revisiting the Festival will be noted media commentator, blogger and writer Margaret Simons. Her latest book, The Content Makers: Understanding the Media in Australia, analyses audiences, our major media organisations, the role of government and the implications of all of these for our society and our democracy.

affordable and achievable. If you know how. Self-Publishing Made Simple is a one-day workshop that will examine the nuts and bolts of the selfpublishing option. This workshop will provide practical instruction on how to edit, design, print, distribute and market your own book for either private or commercial purposes. Hosted by the Northern Rivers Writers’ Centre, the workshop is presented by Dr Euan Mitchell, pictured, a Melbourne-based writer, editor and publisher who lectures in Professional Writ-

ing at Monash University. Euan’s best-selling text, SelfPublishing Made Simple, is now the ultimate guidebook for travellers on this challenging journey. Getting a manuscript

through the publisher’s door is now more difficult than ever and plenty of writers in the past have proved that self-publishing can be a successful stepping stone to a publishing deal – Jane Austen, Leo Tolstoy, Virginia Woolf, Margaret Atwood and Roddy Doyle are some notable examples. Self-Publishing Made Simple will be held on Saturday April 19, 10am-4pm, at the Presbyterian Hall, Byron Bay. Cost is $55 NRWC members, $70 non-members. For bookings and info call NRWC on 6685 5115 or email

Mentorship for local writers Now in its ninth year, the Northern Rivers Writers’ Centre’s annual residential mentorship has assisted some of the region’s best writers to get their first novel published, among them Sarah Armstrong (Salt Rain), Jesse Blackadder (After The Party), Leigh Redhead (Peepshop and since Rubdown and Cherry Pie) and Emma Harding (Nine Parts Water). Book contracts, publication in literary anthologies, prestigious competition wins and sought-after writer residencies have been just some of the other flow-on effects of this very successful program over the years. The chance to access this unique local opportunity is coming round again, with entries closing for this year’s NRWC residential mentorship on April 24. The mentorship offers emerging Northern Rivers writers a five-day residency at a guesthouse in the hills of

Byron Bay from May 26 to 30. During this time they work extensively on developing their manuscript with assistance from acclaimed author and mentor Marele Day, pictured. The Centre is looking for writers with exceptional ability and commitment who are working in areas of fiction and narrative non-fiction and program coordinator Susie Warrick encourages anyone with a well-devel-

oped manuscript to apply. The mentorship is funded by Arts NSW and includes accommodation, tutoring and two meals per day. Applicants must be Northern Rivers residents, aged 18 or over and a current member of the Northern Rivers Writers’ Centre. Applications close at 2pm on Thursday April 24. For an application form visit or phone 6685 5115.

Story & photo Jann Gilbert For Brad Rogers, Ross Jurisich and Jamie Cook beer is more than just an amber liquid that holds an iconic place in human culture – it’s a way of life. However, rather than the stereotypical Australian approach to beer Brad, Ross and Jamie are focussed on quality not quantity with their soon-to-be-launched ‘Stone & Wood’ locally brewed, boutique beer range. With over 50 years’ combined brewing, marketing and sales experience working for the likes of Matilda Bay and Fosters there isn’t much this trio doesn’t know about beer. So when they wanted a seachange (or is that a beerchange?) the three decided to pool their resources and start their own brewery in Byron Bay. Why Byron Bay? ‘Why not?’ the reply is unanimous. ‘Apart from the obvious,’ says Brad, ‘the area has a reputation for craft and artisan industries, and we thought that was a good fit.’ ‘There’s a strong community spirit, a celebration of diversity and creativity, which is what craft beer is all about,’ adds Jamie. Stone & Wood are in the process of setting up the

Is there a Monster in your drain? Gutters and drains around Mullumbimby take rainwater from our streets straight into the Brunswick River and from there it flows out to the ocean. That’s fine … however … not only rain flows to the river ... this stormwater can carry with it a monster called pollution from around our homes and streets. This monster could be oils and grease from cars, detergents from cleaning, paint, cigarette butts, leaves or even in some cases raw sewage. During heavy rains, when stormwater drains are blocked up through dumped rubbish, grass clippings and other litter, stormwater backs up and can enter the sewerage system. It enters through broken and damaged pipes and inlets in private household and public systems. In heavy rain this can overload the sewerage system, causing a mixture of stormwater and sewage to overflow into the river. Council has had to fight the monster with a monster effort in repairing both the sewer and stormwater systems. A dedicated team of eight guys, the “A” Team, have been working solidly cleaning cane field drains, stormwater drains, sucking stormwater pits out, conducting camera inspections of sewer pipes and repairing broken pipes. The crew is also providing an initial plumbing inspection of private plumbing on properties in the older sections of Mullumbimby. Shaun McDonald, supervisor of the A team, said “We’ve had a lot of support from residents so far... just about everyone appreciates the work we’ve been doing and we now need your help with keeping a watch on the stormwater system and repairing any private plumbing defects on your properties.” Dominic Taylor, Council’s plumber went on to say “Believe it or not … 34 tonnes of rubbish was removed from stormwater drains in one area!” Council has been systematically working their way around Mullumbimby with recent work being done on the eastern side of the railway line. Council appreciates your feedback on the work carried out. Please assist us by letting us know – so we can provide good services to our community.

boutique brewery in the Arts & Industry Estate following approval of their DA by Council. (Just as an aside, the guys commented that Council had been fantastic, very efficient in fact. Amazing what happens when you have the good sense to provide the right documentation and ensure there are no ambiguities in your application. Now that’s the sort of commercial venture we’d like to see in Byron!) The brewery equipment has been ordered, the chalk lines drawn on the factory floor and Stone & Wood expects to produce its first kegs sometime in September or October.‘Initially, what were trying to do is just get beer in a glass and go from there,’ says Brad. But it’s not just any beer that Stone & Wood are looking to produce. The aim is to develop a distinctive, small

range of flavours that focuses on the fine art of brewing. It’s a novel concept in a world that constantly seems to be supersizing but, as a former chief brewer for Matilda Bay (an award-winning one at that), Brad appears to be the right man for the job. ‘In the last five or six years I’ve been looking after Matilda Bay and all the smaller brands like Bees Knees and Redback so, as a brewer, it’s my responsibility to ensure the taste of those beers,’ says Brad. As for the marketing, their previous experience in the industry means that the trio are already fairly well-connected, and know the market and many of its players. Ross’s last position was as national sales manager for Matilda Bay, and Jamie has over 20 years’ experience marketing beer nationally

and internationally. ‘We’re really looking forward to bringing craft beer to the community and showing people what it’s all about,’ says Brad. ‘We want to offer some interesting beers and that means getting the right raw materials, the right ingredients, and producing beers that are a little bit different but, obviously, very drinkable.’ For all those health conscious beer drinkers, Stone & Wood is even going to try out an organic beer although, apparently, organic hops and wheat don’t necessarily make for a good tasting beer. In the end the proof, as they say, will be in the eating of the pudding so, even though it’s a difficult job, my illustrious editor has deemed that I do a follow-up story when the first beer flows from the keg. Stay tuned for the taste test.

Local News

Sculpture added to OS art expo Stone, marble, glass and bronze are some of the media local artists can now bring to the Ocean Shores Arts Expo. Local sculptor Judson Chatfield, pictured, is pretty excited that the popular annual art show now includes sculpture for the first time. He says that 3D art forms are as old as – or older than – painting itself. For millenia, things have been modeled from clay or rocks as a way of shaping our belief patterns, our sociology and also recording information. This year, along with 2D media artists such as oil and watercolour painters, sculptors are invited to contemplate the theme for 2008 which is ‘Belonging’.

‘This theme goes along with reconciliation and the understanding of what is needed ethnically, socially and ecologically – how we

fit together as a unit,’ said Judson. ‘I hope we see sculpture that is not just decoration but we invite sculptors to

come up with a comment, working between mass and the negative space.’ There are size and weight limitations due to space, so works will not be monumental but intimate, from handheld up to sculpture sized for interiors. Some sculptors might submit scale models for large works. Artists can check the website for details at osartexpo. com. The Show is again sponsored by the Lions Club. Judson sees that the best way to support artists and their endeavours is to buy their original work. ‘You never know,” says Judson, ‘you might be buying a future Van Gogh!’



First National helps Red Cross plan Emergencies large and small are increasing in Australia; a trend set to continue as factors such as climate change take hold. That’s why the First National Foundation – the charitable arm of First National Real Estate – has partnered with Red Cross in support of Emergency REDiPlan. This Red Cross community information program helps people in Australia to prepare for, respond

to and recover from emergencies more effectively. The First National Foundation aims to raise $3 million over three years through community fundraising and company donations to help REDiPlan build stronger communities around Australia. Byron Bay First National Real Estate is now seeking the support of the community to help raise money for the First National Founda-

tion, in support of Emergency REDiPlan. Byron Bay First National will be holding a movie night, the premiere screening of The Kite Runner, at the Byron Cinemas on April 10 from 6pm to 9pm to help raise funds for this worthy cause. The tickets are $30 and the night will include food, drinks and lucky door prizes as well as the drawing of a giant raffle. This is just one of the

events being undertaken by First National Real Estate offices throughout Australia in support of the First National Foundation. To find out more about The Kite Runner premiere or to make a donation to the First National Foundation in support of the Red Cross Emergency REDiPlan, visit Byron Bay First National Real Estate at 15 Lawson Street or 35 Fletcher Street or call 6685 8466.

Climate change the big challenge Vol 22 #43

April 8, 2008

Planning reform ‘Planning reform’ might be seen as a contradiction in terms under the present NSW government but planning minister Frank Sartor is keen to see his latest draft planning laws as a good step ‘towards invigorating the NSW planning system’. You would be forgiven for thinking that after past attempts at reinvigoration the system should be put out of its misery and that Mr Sartor is not the Dr Frankenstein to spark it into life. The Draft Exposure Bill package – including changes to environmental planning and assessment, the building professionals bill and strata management legislation – can be found online at www.planning.nsw. The community has until April 24 to comment upon it, which is a short time to absorb a 175 page document, as the Local Government Association has pointed out. If Mr Sartor is genuine about consultation, he should extend the submission time. Mind you, the earlier discussion paper on the planning system attracted only 538 submissions – about 0.007685714285714286 per cent of the state’s population – so perhaps punters prefer to worry about planning law only when someone starts whacking up a two storey dual occupancy in the backyard. The war between the NSW government and local government over planning reform will continue unabated. Mr Sartor seems to have a particular knack for inciting outrage, and we suspect he enjoys it. On the draft exposure bill Cr Bruce Miller, president of the Shires Association of NSW, says ‘some of the changes will just add more layers of red tape and cost ratepayers millions of dollars to implement. They will also take decisions away from local communities and impact on councils’ ability to provide crucial services.’ The main concern for residents will be how much control they will have not only over the dual occupancy next door but also over major developments, which Mr Sartor likes to take under his own wing. According to the minister, feedback from the Independent Commission Against Corruption has resulted in the draft legislation supporting an expansion of ‘objector review rights’ under a category called ‘public interest development’. Will public interest be defined as ‘what the government of the day says it is’, as the British judge said in the case brought against Clive Ponting for leaking Falkland War documents, or will we get a genuine say? Plans to introduce arbitrators on planning decisions are welcome if they reduce court costs and angst for both councils and applicants. The proposed Joint Regional Planning Panels, ‘comprising NSW government and local council nominees to determine regionally-significant proposals’, are fraught with danger for local interests, especially if elected representatives are left out of the mix. Whatever the result of these reforms, we can be sure that local councils, the state’s bastard children, will be kept undernourished and left in the dark, and residents will have to fight tooth and nail for every concession in favour of sustainable planning.

evin Rudd’s big trip can be described as a modest success – at least in its own terms, which, in spite of the media ballyhoo, were not all that ambitious. Contacts have been made, flesh has been pressed and Australia’s positioning on the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan made clear even to the thickest of our allies (George W Bush). Our renewed commitment to the United Nations has been underlined by our somewhat quixotic bid for a seat on the security council, our continued commitment to free trade confirmed and our approach to China and Japan rebalanced. In the process Rudd himself has been accepted and even applauded by his international peer group (if not by the hysterical fringe who objected to him waving Bush a cheery salute) and Australia’s credentials as an international player greatly strengthened. Mission, as they say, accomplished. But the big challenges remain, the first being the inflation-busting budget, which will be quite painful enough for starters. And beyond that looms the far greater, on-going pain of dealing with climate change. There is no doubt that Rudd takes it seriously; shortly after he became leader of the ALP he described it as the great moral challenge of our times, later adding that it was the great economic and political challenge as well. He made it a centrepiece of the election campaign, committed Labor to a 60 percent cut in greenhouse gas emissions by 2050 and commissioned Ross Garnaut to report on

the way to get there. Garnaut’s preliminary ideas have now emerged, pointing to what appears to be a fairly even distribution of cost between consumers and producers, with the details to come shortly. So far so good. But there still appears to be a very limited appreciation among the general public of just what the cost will entail. It is not just a matter of changing the light bulbs and turning few things off for Earth Hour.We are looking at a long term change in lifestyle – indeed, at a permanent lowering of living standards. And the real challenge is whether Rudd and his colleagues will have the courage to inflict it upon us, because there is no way

the effect of making energy in all its forms – electricity, gas, petrol, you name it – more expensive. Lobby groups are already arguing that both suppliers and consumers should be compensated for the price rises, but this is to miss the point. As both Garnaut and the Reserve Bank chairman Glenn Stevens explained last week, the whole idea of pushing the price of energy up is so people will use less of it. This is the only shortterm method by which emissions can be reduced. Subsidising people’s bills (as the Howard government effectively did by ending the indexation of petrol excise in 2001) not only sends the wrong signals but is demon-

We are looking at a long term change in lifestyle – indeed, at a permanent lowering of living standards. by Mungo MacCallum known that we are going to do it voluntarily. The softening up process has at least begun. The New South Wales government has produced an alarmist report warning that we could be facing a four percent drop in productivity by 2030, with a consequent decline in national wealth. Given the healthy growth rate of the economy overall, this would not be terribly serious. But the report does not spell out just where the pain would be felt. The first step in any comprehensive attack on emissions will be the setting of a cap, followed by the implementation of a carbon trading scheme, which will have

strably the wrong policy. No pain, no gain. In the long term, of course, when we have made the switch to non-polluting sources of energy, we can all stop worrying. But that will take a long time and a hell of a lot of money. Alternative energy does not come cheap. Given the continuing sensitivity of the voters’ hip pocket nerves, the next few years will require governments which are both very clever and very brave. To put it at its crudest level: I’m not going to give up using my car until you do too, and neither of us will unless the government makes us. And if any government does, we’ll vote the

bastards out of office. Over to you, Mr Rudd.


o another domino has fallen. Peter McGauran, once spoken of as a possible leader of the National Party, has left parliament for the racing industry. He will be neither missed nor mourned. However his erstwhile cabinet colleagues Peter Costello, Tony Abbott, Alexander Downer and Phillip Ruddock are hanging on, to the frustration of their leader (‘call me Brendan – I’m listening’), who would much prefer to cleanse the Augean stables in one mighty flushing but lacks the Herculean strength needed to do so. It is not quite clear why Downer and Ruddock continue to infest the place; presumably they have nothing better to do. Abbott, we know, still harbours dreams of leadership.The question is whether Costello does too. Certainly his small but perfectly formed cheer squad, News Limited’s poison dwarf Glenn Milne, has not given up, and there is probably a rump within the Liberal party prepared to forgive the indolence and self-indulgence which has led to Costello lurking on the backbench. But when the party decides Nelson’s time is up, will it really want to go back to the man who, as Labor would gleefully put it, let the inflation genie out of the bottle and sent interest rates skyward, and never had the guts to stand up to John Howard? Well, not if Malcolm Turnbull has anything to do with it. And like him or loathe him, at least everyone agrees that he has the ticker for the job, unlike Costello the Yellow, the man who never was.

Problems with planes ■ After reading the advertisement in last week’s paper, warning of an imminent sky full of noisy aircraft, I feel compelled to write. There are two issues people should be aware of: 1. The proposed policy change was made so that Council complies with the Fair Trade and Practices Act. An in-house Council workshop made these findings. They advised on the policy change to meet legal obligations. It has not been a kneejerk response by Council to pressure being applied from ‘outsiders’. 2. The policy change (if adopted) does not grant access to Tyagarah airport. It simply means that other people (besides those already entrenched) can apply for a licence. Each (proposed) business is then required to gain approval from the Airport Committee. (No mean feat.). And of course, let’s not forget the relevant DAs. As every DA is advertised for public comment, this is the appropriate time to raise concerns to Council. This is the only time that there could

Suffolk Park has (deservedly) received a lot of bad press lately for break-ins, vandalism and alcoholfuelled violence. This week however I saw another side of Suffolk Park, a caring community side. My son had an epileptic seizure while walking along Armstrong Street after school. So many people stopped to give assistance. By the time I arrived on the scene an ambulance had been called, a young man was trying to put a towel under my son’s injured head and another had fetched an icepack. All were speaking words of comfort and reassurance to him. Heartfelt thanks to Felix, Matt and Jordy from Nextwave Media, Paul Davies and the ambulance officers.

Bangalow ■ Brett Bishop isn’t half right about the assault on the north end of the shire. The Nazguls are indeed circling. It isn’t as though I am normally a serial whinger and I can handle a degree of assault (as in just one festival, not year round ) but we in the north and the creatures of the Billinudgel nature reserve have to deal with not only the festival overkill, the perhaps imminent Golden Arches and the associated truck movements on the local road, the lack of sporting amenities (OK, animals don’t care about this one), the downstream effects of proposed developments at Wooyong but also being buzzed by low flying aircraft from the Gold Coast flying schools.

Shelter needed CAWI (Companion Animals Welfare Incorporated) is a registered charity and a stand alone volunteer organisation. We are not affiliated with any other animal rescue groups. CAWI was founded by myself on December 12, 2004. I had a vision of raising funds and building a much needed dog shelter somewhere in Byron Shire. Another wish was to be able to save any re-housable animals from the Council Pound following the mandatory seven day limit applied. On February 14, 2005, we opened our Op-Shop at Brunswick Heads and commenced raising funds towards this goal. The shop has been very successful due to our wonderful band of volunteers and the generous support from people donating goods for us to sell. We have many supporters. After paying rent on two shops, rubbish removal, telephone, electricity, insurance etc, CAWI has now accumulated enough funds to start planning for the building of Stage One of our dog shelter. We are now looking for suitable land for our project. Hopefully, Byron Shire Council can provide suitable vacant Council land, or some wonderful, animal loving, philanthropic person may be willing to donate a suitable parcel of land that will comply with Council regulations. Land that is some distance


people have noticed but the frequency of this air traffic is escalating. CASA, the aviation authority, has designated the Billinudgel Reserve airspace as a low flying flight training area which means that aircraft can fly as low as 66 metres or 200 feet. If you were worried about the effects the festival noise would have on creatures ‘surviving’ in the nature reserve then worry a little more. A single engine aircraft flying at 200 feet emits more noise pollution than a passing B-Double and the flight schools have somewhat arrogantly informed me that the frequency will double over the next twelve months due to demand. Once again I could happily handle the odd plane doing its thing a few times a week but jeez, fair crack of the whip! To have your say you can e-mail your objections to, to justine. and lodge your complaint to CASA by phoning 1800 802 584.

Council, in association with the NSW Environmental Trust, is planting almost 7,000 trees along the banks of the Brunswick River at Vallances Rd, Mullumbimby. Planting these trees will benefit the environment in many ways: they will improve fisheries and local fauna habitat, become a sediment trap for eroded soils, improve water quality and help clean up the atmosphere. So pull on your work pants, hats and sunscreen and come along to plant some trees for the benefit of all living things. The location is at the end of Vallances Rd (off Coolamon Scenic Drive) Saturday 12th April 2008. Council staff will be on site from 8.00am – noon to assist and answ any questions relating to the new sewerage answer treatment plant. In case of rain, the planting will be postponed till further notice.

it all after reading several propagandist reports in the mainstream media, secondly from the debunkers spreading disinformation infused with enough genuine information to appear as bonafide debunkery, thirdly from a secure population too afraid to learn or know of the truth, and mostly from others like Mr Watterson who believes that if a person attempts to make a profit from their work then such an agenda precludes any right to appear credible. Surely one must believe that the opposite should be the case, but I have been debating such people on the internet for so long now that it appears this mindset is like reinforced concrete for those too unwilling to face the

possibility that at least the conspiracy theorist is openminded enough to admit that the theory might actually be the truth. Without a full and complete disclosure on what is really going on with global weather manipulation and chemical aerosol operations, we can only rely upon personal observation and the widespread internet information that mainstream media is too scared or unwilling to expose. At least The Echo has allowed some small amount of information to seep through and for that we must be grateful. Ashiya Austin’s letter was a welcome sight for sore eyes.

Is there something in the air supply? ■ Regarding the chemtrails letter in your recent Echo by Alan Watterson. I wonder if he has been living in Byron Shire for the last ten years. I am enclosing a letter from Gary Opit to the council regarding chemtrails: by.htm. As a result of Gary’s letter, Janelle Bancroft, Senior Environmental Health Officer, contacted a few government departments and she was told by the Defence Department that the sky above Byron Shire is outside our council’s jurisdiction. Eve Sinton, former environmental editor of The Echo, consulted me when she wrote this chemtrails article in The Echo: www.

(not available at The Echo website anymore). Much more information regarding chemtrails around the world is available at: and I have kept Larry Anthony ex MP and the council updated for years regarding chemtrails. Shlomo Arnon

Mullumbimby ■ I fail to see how any author promoting their work or trying to make a semblance of a living from their research and writing becomes automatic grounds for debunking them, as Alan Watterson seems to imply in his April 1 letter. We don’t, for example, boycott an art exhibition

because the artist might be trying to sell their work, or a live music show because the band might be trying to sell some CDs on the night. What makes some internet news sites better than others is their willingness to publish uncredited material from Joe Average in the interests of information sharing, as opposed to those others who only publish on a need-to-know basis (in their opinion) and can only be regarded as tabloid or junk journalism at best, censored propaganda at worst, and some sort of trivial entertainment guide somewhere in between. It should always be left to the reader to discern what is newsworthy or credible and up to the editor to allow room for even the

things they cannot personally justify so long as it appears newsworthy or informative. My letter concerning chemtrails the week before may have been more newsworthy had the editor not taken so harshly to it with his editorial wont to reduce it to nearly half its original content so that his advertorial document left more room for paying contributors, or, as was the case of the April 1 edition, room for boorish prank reports deemed suitable purely for coincidence of date purposes and prank pulling. Good one, The Echo, I think not. The problem most ‘conspiracists’ face is multifold, first from the disbelieving public who think they know

FYI, my Author ity prohibiting new business isn’t ‘a sports another rail crossing, while shoe (Nike) shop’, it’s a overseeing the dereliction sneaker and streetwear bou- of the track so that no trains

can ever run on the rails. This hiatus is actually a blessing in disguise because a bypass is destined to be a disastrous mistake and money down the drain. A learned friend once observed that Byron Bay already has a bypass – it’s called the Pacific Highway. Expressway development between Brisbane and here means that we are having to cope with a big increase in the numbers of cars turning east off the highway and heading straight to the town centre. By definition, a bypass is for those that want to pass by the town. Only a small proportion of drivers proceed through town as evidenced by the relative absence of traffic problems on the road to Suffolk Park. Proponents of a bypass cite that it is common sense to take traffic away from the town centre. Indeed it does

seem so but a bypass will actually make things worse. Even though it appears counter-intuitive, the fact is more road infrastructure would bring more traffic jams and since most cars are destined for the town centre anyway the bypass is doomed to fail. We need to follow the lead set by Enrique Peñalosa, when he was mayor of Bogota, Colombia. Peñalosa was awarded the environmental equivalent of the Nobel Prize for his creative vision on reducing traffic congestion and improving public amenity which is now being emulated around the world. He introduced such initiatives as closing down the city to cars on Sundays and having a restriction system in place during peak hours. Peñalosa points out that: ‘Building more roads because you have traffic jams continued overleaf

14 April 8, 2008 Byron Shire Echo


A councillorâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s lot is not a happy one â&#x2013; The lack of appeal of life as a Councillor, shown recently by Tom Tabartâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s exposĂŠ, hardly paints a picture of public ofďŹ ce Nirvana. I guess we all expect things get nasty or petty, and perhaps too many simply cannot resist the desperate indulgence of getting personal when participating in active democracy. Anyone who is contemplating entering this world of Council, no doubt, comes with the desire to change it or the ability to accept it, because either way, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a current prevailing reality. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d prefer to bring attention to another, potentially dissuading factor of being a Councillor, perhaps mundane, yet nonetheless inescapable, is the currently scheduled time of Council meetings. At 10.30am on

Thursdays, and 10.30am Wednesday for extraordinary meetings, (adding to the necessary committee meetings and functions,) anyone with a full time job is hard pressed to consider nominating for Council. Most of the current Councillors are decent, intelligent and hard working residents doing their best. Surely though, a broader representation of residents of the Shire, be it teachers, business and trades people, farmers, designers, youth, health and social workers and countless others, would benefit small businesspeople, retirees, the unemployed or ďŹ&#x201A;exible shift workers being on our Council. Meetings at 6.30pm would allow those willing to contribute a lot of hours for little ďŹ nancial or congratulatory reward, to at least, do so

without jeopardising their careers, security and passionate commitment to their vocation. Could the current Councillors please inform the Shire why meetings are held during the day and not after business hours? And what measures could be put in place to make the decision on whether one enters local politics or not a decision based on passion and commitment, not overcoming prohibitive hours and a potential collision with a career? A broader church brings with it a more varied and vigorous debate, and greater achievement and representation. Simon Richardson

Federal â&#x2013; Not a lot of point in replying to Rene Thalmannâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s we have done enough of these and not one has shown that a bypass is the way to go. One such event was a workshop run by David Engwicht, who is one of the worldâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s most innovative thinkers about traffic and urban design. Looking speciďŹ cally at the Byron Bay situation, the workshop resolved not to expand the existing traffic-carrying capacity. The problem is simply too many cars and more infrastructure increases the efďŹ ciency in the short term which would quickly get absorbed by more trafďŹ c. The way forward, and one is clearly needed, will only be achieved by adopting lateral and brave ideas and resisting being bullied into a tired old approach. Yes, a solution to the trafďŹ c chaos should be a goal of the new council but an ineffective solution serves nobodyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s interests. Bill Mackay

constant railing over the shortcomings of Council. Perhaps he and Terry Hudson could correspond directly and cut out the middle man. It is obvious that human society has a psychological need for scapegoats and in Oz, councils fit the bill nicely. Taking the trouble to actually learn about the function of and restrictions on local government and its subservient position in the gover nment hierarchy which leaves it, ďŹ nancially and functionally, at the mercy of the state government, would tend to spoil the fun. A quick read of the Council Plan of Management and Budget will give an instant understanding of the huge gap between what we need to do and what is

within our restricted budget. It is no use whinging incessantly about how your rates should fund every desire claimed as a â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;rightâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;. Byron Shire has only recently cleared the debt incurred by the â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;interestingâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; financial approach of the Eastcott regime (which, incidentally, is currently having its history revised by young Harold in the â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Cou Rouge Courierâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;). Only last year did our rate level get into the bracket of comparable councils. In NSW rates are pegged by the State â&#x20AC;&#x201C; it may be of interest that the 3.2% decreed for 08/09 will not even cover salary increases for staff and when other running costs are factored in we are a further 2% adrift. In essence, each year we go backwards on rates and

the Christmas period was overwhelming. Unfortunately, we have had to refuse to accept many cats and kittens due to our limited capacity. We are requesting that anyone who takes on an animal realise that it is a commitment of many years and that it would also be better to have an animal neutered than to see many kittens abandoned, surrendered or, at the worst, euthanised. If you are renting please make sure that your landlord/lady is happy to have an animal and that you plan to be at that address for many years. A great number of our cats come from people who have been renting and have had to move. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s very upsetting for the owner to have to give up an animal because they cannot ďŹ nd accommodation that will allow pets and obviously not good for the animal. We are a non-euthanase, self-funded organisation and our fees donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t cover our running costs unfortunately so we are always looking for donations of food, money and ideas for fundraising etc. We are also always looking for new members and volunteers to assist with taking the strain off our regular volunteers and we would welcome any help we can get.

Byron Shire Echo April 8, 2008 15

Comment Dailan Pugh, BEACON president, presents an overview of the local planning process

The vision for Byron Shire is fading V isions are essential to guide us in shaping our future. Over a decade ago Byron Shire Council adopted visions of sustainability and applied them to its planning processes to shape the Shire’s future development. Now the vision is being usurped by developers’ desires. In the mid 1980s the NSW government intervened to help Byron develop a strategic approach to planning. By 1988 it had an adopted Local Environmental Plan (LEP), though its planning for rural areas and new land releases was still a mess and generating increasing community outrage. In the mid 1990s dissatisfaction came to a head with the election of a new Council. This resulted in a planning renaissance for Byron Shire. Community groups underwent a visioning process known as The Big Picture Show and Council introduced a Greenprint for a Sustainable Future. Sustainability principles were incorporated into the Local Environmental Plan and became the basis for planning. To overcome conflicts in rural areas Council first developed a Rural Settlement Strategy in consultation with the community. The process utilised was considered so innovative that Council received the Royal Australian Planning Institute’s award for excellence in local government planning in 1999. With this success Council began preparing Settlement Strategies for its towns and villages. The intent was to use these to complete a new Local Environmental Plan by 2002. All seemed to be on track until 2001 when Council began to falter under pressure from developers and its planning began its descent into farce. Now Council has lost its vision and returned to the dark ages of a planning free for all, with ad hoc processes, and developers being invited to replace community aspirations with their own. Sustainability is given lip service but the substance has gone. The battle is at hazard, but is not yet lost. This review looks at how we got to where we are now and where we are headed. In the early 1980s Council operated under Interim Development Order No. 1 and undertook rezoning applications on an ad hoc basis. In rural areas this was resulting in fragmentation of prime agricultural land, conflicts with agricultural activities, costly service provision, high travel costs, social isolation and environmental damage. The community conflict generated by inappropriate and ad hoc developments led the Department of Planning to assign staff to Byron to help implement a strategic approach, resulting in Byron’s 1986 Rural Residential Development Strategy which identified a process to identify areas for future land releases. In 1988 Byron Council adopted its first Local Environmental Plan which zoned extensive areas for urban development and stopped

the ability to create concessional lots in rural areas. The NSW government also adopted the North Coast Regional Environmental Plan which provided strategic direction for new land releases. Pressure mounted for Council to do something to implement the 1986 Strategy. Finally in 1993 Council adopted its Byron Residential Development Strategy, which identified a process for dealing with rural land releases and areas (1, 2 and 3) near Byron for which the Council would be prepared to consider rezoning proposals once the necessary studies had been undertaken. Soon after the plan was agreed to by the Department of Planning in 1994, the then owner of Belongil Fields, Paul McMahon, applied for his land to be rezoned. Council refused on the grounds that he had first to prepare a Local Environmental Study (LES) and undertake a range of site-specific studies. Apparently unable to afford the required studies, the owner instead embarked on a campaign to intimidate Council staff ‘with a bombardment of material, rezoning applications, complaints and Commission questions, that they become overwhelmed and start giving us what ever we ask for’. In 1997 ICAC found that this was corrupt conduct. Council then initiated a LES and a range of studies for Area 1, 2 and 3. In 1997 the traffic study emphasised the gross inadequacy of Ewingsdale Road to cope with then current traffic volumes, and advised against allowing any significant increases in development to the west of town until the problems were rectified (widening of Shirley Street to four lanes, provision of a town bypass and 500 additional parking spaces in town). The LES was never completed and the traffic problems never rectified. The 1993 Strategy was no more successful in other rural areas as community fights over rural subdivisions were becoming so divisive that in 1995 Byron Council placed a moratorium on rezoning of rural lands for residential purposes. Community groups hosted The Big Picture Show and councillors developed a Greenprint for a Sustainable Future which became the basis for planning and was incorporated into the LEP in 1998. Essentially the Greenprint sought to implement a sustainable future through application of seven principles: sPRECAUTIONARYPRINCIPLE

sINTERGENERATIONALEQUITY s CONSERVING BIOLOGICAL DIVERSITY and ecological integrity, s IMPROVING THE VALUATION AND pricing of social and ecological resources, s ELIMINATING OR REDUCING TO harmless levels discharges that are likely to cause environmental harm, sENCOURAGINGASTRONG GROWING and diversified economy, and sPROVIDINGCREDIBLEINFORMATION in open and accountable processes.

Council then embarked on an extensive community consultation process to implement the Greenprint in developing the Byron Rural Settlement Strategy. This involved identifying lands that were not environmentally constrained or prime agricultural land, had reasonable roads and were close to existing settlements or facilities. The idea being to minimise costs by utilising existing infrastructure, services and community facilities, minimise fuel use by locating new development within walking or bicycling distance of facilities, and strengthen existing communities. The outcome was the adoption of the Strategy in 1998 with identification of lands suitable for Rural Community Title at Main Arm, Federal-Coorabell, Eureka-Clunes, Natural Lane and Broken Head. Unfortunately, despite repeated requests by BEACON, Council refused to take the process to the next stage of consultation with each affected community to refine the lands available and the level of development acceptable to the communities. Council preferred to implement a piecemeal developer driven process, which predictably led to strong community opposition at Federal and Main Arm. Opposition at Natural Lane followed Council’s failure to ensure constraints were properly applied. Council then failed to undertake the five year review and rectify the obvious problems. This inept implementation again led to Council abandoning the process and placing yet another moratorium on new rural land releases. Council is now proposing abandoning its sustainability criteria to allow all lots in rural areas to have two houses. There are over 5,000 rural lots over one hectare in size, so this could be quite a few. It is assumed that this will be in addition to those allowed by the Settlement Strategy when it is reviewed. As part of its planning for implementation of a new Local Environmental Plan in 2002, in 1998 Council implemented a Small Towns and Villages Strategy process based on the Rural Strategy process. Strategies had been prepared and exhibited for Byron Bay/ Suffolk Park, Brunswick Heads, Mullumbimby and Bangalow by 2000. The communities all identified that they wanted small low density and low key communities with limited additional growth. The Strategy for Byron Bay/Suffolk Park was belatedly recommended for adoption in February

2002, though despite lengthy discussions Council failed to do so, essentially because key Councillors wouldn’t accept limiting residential densities on Lighthouse Road and north of Cavvanbah Street. There was an attempt to implement the residential densities identified by the Byron Bay/Suffolk Park Strategy into the LEP (Amendment 107) in 2002, though Council stuffed up the process. Eventually a watered-down surrogate for the proposed densities was incorporated into the Development Control Plan (DCP). Council lost all interest in the other strategies, deciding to accept them rather than formally adopting them. It was only because of lobbying by BEACON that the strategies were finally adopted for Bangalow and Mullumbimby in December 2003 and Brunswick Heads in December 2004. The strategies for Ocean Shores, Golden Beach, New Brighton and Ewingsdale were never commenced. Thus the planning renaissance faded into obscurity. The LEP that was to be completed by 2002 has been going around in circles ever since, while Council has systematically dismantled the community’s visions. The Settlement Strategy for Byron Bay has been so compromised by developers’ dreams it is like Swiss cheese. The vision of a sustainable small low density community has already been compromised, and they have only just started. The most recent examples of Council’s decisions to override the Strategy include the proposed rezoning of Belongil Fields in the draft LEP for residential development (220-300 houses). This has previously being refused because the required studies hadn’t been done, because the traffic impacts are too great and because its development is not compatible with the community vision. Another example is their decision to override the community’s identified low density development on the 5ha Bayshore ‘village’ site with a developer’s proposal for the highest density residential development yet in Byron. This is achieved by reducing public and private open space, setbacks from roads and car parks. Council identifies this as the new ‘Byron vernacular’. Some Councillors are also advocating preparing a Masterplan with the ‘West Byron Landowners’ for their (500-700 houses), and other (ie redevelopment of Sunnybrand

Chickens), housing estates to the south of Ewingsdale Road (turning the stretch from Island Quarry to the Belongil bridge into surburbia). Despite this being dismissed in the Settlement Strategy, Council has recently commissioned a traffic study that includes these developments. While there have been numerous meetings between the West Byron Landowners, Councillors and Council staff, ‘minutes are not available’. The existing Settlement Strategies for Byron Bay, Suffolk Park, Brunswick Heads, Mullumbimby and Bangalow identify sufficient land already zoned for development for 2,600 new dwellings, the rural settlement strategy provides for another 670, and inbuilt in these strategies are additional contingencies of 280 dwellings. This is without accounting for additional capacity at Ocean Shores, New Brighton, Billinudgel, Golden Beach and Ewingsdale. The state government’s 2007 Far North Coast Regional Strategy identifies a dwelling target for Byron Shire of 2,600 dwellings until 2031, and for implementation requires that Council prepares a Local Growth Management Strategy for residential, rural residential, commercial, industrial and tourism land uses. The Regional Strategy is based on the premises that growth pressures on Byron Shire need to be reduced because of its tourism load (dwelling targets for Ballina and Tweed have been correspondingly increased), and the need to shift 40% of future growth west of the highway to reduce pressure on the coastal strip. As the existing Settlement Strategies already provide sufficient scope to satisfy the State Government’s identified needs for Byron Shire for more than the next 25 years it is outrageous that Council are repeatedly over-riding the settlement strategies to give developers whatever they ask for. Particularly as the Regional Strategy requires that growth allowances for Byron Bay should be reduced rather than increased. It appears that Council’s refusal to prepare the Growth Strategy is an attempt to hide the fact that their actions are unjustifiable. Before the vision is totally lost Council should return to the original settlement strategies (despite the holes), faithfully implement them, stop approving developments which contravene them, adopt them as the basis for preparing a Local Growth Management Strategy in an open and accountable process, and use this to prepare the long overdue LEP. Realisation of the community’s vision for a sustainable future is now probably just wishful thinking, though it is possible if the community speaks out to demand Council belatedly implements it. It is ironic that our Council has become so antagonistic to the settlement strategies that the only hope we have is to make them apply the NSW government’s Regional Strategy.

Nature thrives on wings of opportunity Story & photo Mary Gardner In the woodland front yard, my friend and I watch two crested doves, preening each other. Ocyphaps lophotes. Pigeons, if you prefer French in your English. But exactly what are they: peaceful heralds of good fortune or worrisome rats on wings? They flutter and rise as someone walks by along the road. Their primary feathers on their wings are shaped to make that whistling sound whenever they fly. They perch. We watch. Over several weeks, each midmorning they return. Then, without notice, they become absent. Now, in the sun, lies a stray grey cat. Crested doves are native seed eating birds who in the 1940s took happy advantage of the clearing of forests to expand its range into this area. They are part of that special group of native animals that make quick adaptations to changes in their habitat. Worldwide, survivors among any native animals are a surprise and a mystery. In the case of the crested doves, the birds made a lucky switch. As their usual native foods became scarce, they took to feeding on agricultural crops and other introduced plants.

In this sense, these doves are generalists. They are known to take a special fancy to plants of the borage family. There are at least three Echium species in Australia. One occurs rarely. Another is common. The third of these Mediterranean plants, with bell flowers of blue, is known as Salvation Jane by beekeepers. Some consider the nectar important to the bee industry.The same plant, becoming widespread, taking over paddocks and proving toxic to grazing animals, is also known by pastoralists as Patterson’s Curse.

But this Echium, plantagineum to be specific, is a plant doing the same thing as the doves. The seeds were brought to Camden Park in 1843 and out to Albury by 1859. The plant spread rapidly. In a field test, seeds were found to be as dense as 20,000 to the square metre and viable for seven years. No insects bothered with it. The doves simply feasted. In the 1970s, Australian scientists took on research to identify some biological control of this plant. Reprimanded by the cane toad

debacle, testing for insects or diseases that can control Echium was done with extreme care. Finally, two weevils and a flea beetle were identified as potential agents. In the 1980s, there was an action brought by some beekeepers against the introduction of these insects, but this was finally dismissed. Only in the past few years has there been any success. One of the weevils takes to the roots of Echium in zones where there is more rain and little if any grazing. The flea beetle takes to the roots in

are fed the crop milk mixed with larger proportions of regurgitated semi-digested seeds. This intertwined story of plant and bird spans over a hundred years. Now weevils and beetles are taking part. Farmers change how they manage paddocks to help accommodate the new insects. There are more twists to come and we can’t really predict the next chapter. Then again, how much does Echium really matter to the doves? In Adelaide, the crested doves now also take to eating olives, but they do poorly and lose weight. Last week, the CSIRO released a statement pointing out that climate change is already pushing wildlife to move into different areas and try new foods. Plants are moving too. What we are used to will change. We will need to be watchful. Doves have often been held as symbols of the soul. Who is to judge? We humans are always somewhere in the middle of the story of local ecology. Being impartial about the latest episodes could be sensible.

dry areas and is quite tolerant of intensive grazing. Between these two, there may finally be a damper on the spread of Echium. Meanwhile, the crested dove continues. As a group, doves are famous worldwide for their lifelong partnerships and their very active sexuality. They will breed throughout the year, nesting even up to six times. Both parents incubate each pair of eggs. Both feed their young with ‘crop milk’, a cream secreted from special cells in ■ Mary Gardner is a writer, a sac at the end of their biologist and tutor.

Ok Rukkus fans it’s on Saturday 12th April from 12 noon Mullumbimby Skate Park plays host to the fourth annual Rukkus Skate Competition. Hosted by the Byron Youth Activity Centre, the idea came from local young woman Baylee Johnson who wanted to do something positive to show the wider community what young people can achieve when given some support. This year the Skate Competition is bigger with fantastic prizes donated by local businesses Truck Stop SK8 (Ballina) and S-cape (Byron Bay) and bigger skate companies like Folklore, Urban SK8er, Kewday and Element skating, as well as a host of skate clothing and footwear companies. ‘This year we have 8 decks to give away including a special deck supplied by Aphrodite Skating for the girls division. ‘The reputation of this comp is growing and sponsorship interest is growing’ said William Taylor who has been collecting prizes this year. ‘We are so grateful and excited by the level of interest and support from skate companies, hopefully this will continue and our local young skaters will get further recognition and opportunities from these relationships’ said Belle Arnold from the Byron YAC. It is a safety requirement that skaters to wear helmets for the skate competition and participants are encouraged to bring their own but helmets will be provided on the day by Lake Ainsworth Sport and Recreation. It costs $5 to enter the competition. Bat Bus will be providing a free shuttle bus service and the timetable will be posted, the shuttles run south from Billinudgel, South Golden Beach, Ocean Shores, Brunswick Heads to Mullumbimby and north from Bangalow, Suffolk Park, Byron Bay and Ewingsdale to the Skate Park.

This group identified many issues facing young women in Byron T Shire and as the first step towards the strategies of dealing with S tthese issues wanted to hold women’s only events to build stronger networks between young women. Members of the s group are developing many new skills through activities and g projects the group participates in. These have included the p creation of a poster campaign informing young people about c sexual assault and age of sexual consent issues; the creation of a young publication ‘FACE IT’; a highly successful art exhibition held on Valentines Day themed ‘Love, Respect and Healthy Relationships’ and holding an information stall at International Women’s Day. Currently, Girls Group is working with the Lismore Women’s Health Centre in running a series of workshops around positive body image, healthy relationships and gaining skills and experience in mentoring to younger girls in the wider community. This project is working towards a regional exhibition with young women from Lismore, Kyogle and Nimbin. Coming up for young women in the Byron Shire is a Young Women’s Health Forum, bring together young women to promote health and get together to express concerns about destructive behaviours and relationships around peers, young men, parents and other adults in the community, sexuality and substance abuse. The forum will also offer a range of creative playshops for young women lots of ways to express themselves around these issues. This project is being funded by Beyond Blue and the Byron Shire Council.

Youth Week Angela Ward, coordinator of Byron Bay Youth House, looks at youth homelessness

Safe accommodation is a basic human right


hat are the options open to young people when faced with family breakdown, mental health issues, domestic violence and addictions, or often combinations of all these issues? Many families can find themselves in this situation, leaving our young people vulnerable to various forms of harm. The choices for young people are either to remain in a harmful or even abusive situation or leave. Leaving often means couch surfing friends’ and relatives’ homes or sleeping rough, bottom line the young person becomes homeless and this can often lead to other forms of abuse and neglect. Every night across NSW over 11,000 children and young people are homeless, every night across Australia over 36,000 children and young people are homeless. An alarming 43% of the total homeless population in NSW are young people and have a 1 in 2 chance of accessing supported accommodation and a bed for the night. Although the statistics are disturbing, the extent of homelessness is still understated because many who are homeless do not necessarily present to services. Currently homeless services provide accommodation to only 14% of those who are homeless each night.(1) The Byron Bay Youth House provides short term crisis accommodation for up to five young people 16 to 23 years of age who find themselves in such situations. The youth crisis house provides young people with a stable base where they can then face the stresses of modern life in a competitive region where there is the prospect of either a low income or unemployment. The Byron Bay Youth House is a not for profit organisation funded by DoCS under the Supported Accommodation Assistance Program (SAAP) and overseen by a management committee and service coordinator. The Byron Bay Youth House geographical area stretches from Grafton to Tweed and is the only youth crisis refuge available between those areas. The Youth House has a team of youth workers that support young people to identify their specific needs in relation to independent living skills which will assist them to either return to the parental home or find other stable accommodation. While living at the Youth House young people are linked into various support services, such as drug and alcohol counselling, mental

health, family mediation, recreation, study programs and suitable work where possible. Between 2006-07 the Byron Bay Youth House had 238 referrals, we assisted 7% of referrals with early intervention, though generally most had already received some form of early intervention. We were only able to accommodate 52 young people, most of whom had high and complex needs. Seventy five per cent of the young people accommodated had mental health issues, 64% presented with drug and alcohol concerns and 53% with dual diagnosis (both drug and alcohol and mental health). There are huge issues pertaining to mental health and the lack of appropriate services available and at a time when there has been a significant increase in ‘behavioural’ diagnosis. The Youth House cannot always provide accommodation to some young people who need a very high level of behavioural management as well as a 1:1 worker, resources and support from several services.(2) Young people need various support with housing, mental health, living skills, alcohol and other drug issues, family mediation, education and employment options to break the cycle of homelessness, not just a roof over their heads. It’s extremely difficult for young people to maintain education or employment while homeless but still an impressive 42% of homeless young people in NSW aged 12-18 remain in school.(3) This figure can be increased if young people have access to the right support and stable accommodation when they first become homeless. Young people need holistic support and accessibility to the various services that are needed to break the cycle of homelessness.

Generally young people can be disadvantaged when attempting to rent through a real estate agent by having a lack of previous rental references, lack of stable income and any other prevailing issues as mentioned earlier. Share accommodation can also be difficult, as the average youth allowance amount per fortnight is $348. The average rent assistance paid per fortnight is $69 for shared accommodation. That’s a total of $417 per fortnight. The average rent per fortnight for a two bedroom unit in Byron end of 2007 was $600, that’s prior to food, utility bills, transport, education/work or job search expenses (4)… we don’t have to be too academic to appreciate that’s not a realistic option. The Byron Bay Youth House alleviates this problem only slightly. In partnership with North Coast Community Housing the Youth House also provides supported medium term accommodation comprising of three two bedroom units in Byron Bay which can assist up to six young people. Ideally clients are able to transition from the crisis Youth House to the Exit Units which are set up as affordable housing for youth as well as providing ongoing case management support to tenants. This has proven to be ideal for many young people studying or working and unable to afford sustainable accommodation in the Byron area. Due to the nature of the program being medium term, the turnover of clients is not rapid. Additional medium term accommodation is necessary to house the many young people that leave crisis accommodation and still are unable to find suitable housing. The current government is examining homelessness in Australia through the development and commissioning of the green paper,

and apparently will take into consideration the ideas and views of community regarding how Australia should address homelessness over the next decade. Strategies and actions pertaining to preventing homelessness, improving crisis services and stopping the cycle of homelessness are evidently high on the agenda. The green paper is currently being compiled and will be tabled in parliament and issued for formal consultation in May 2008. Under the government’s philosophy the green paper states that ‘Governments must provide services that help resolve people’s homelessness and exclusion from mainstream society, homeless Australians must be given the encouragement to achieve economic independence’.(5) An ‘Action Plan’, the white paper is due to commence in August 2008. I am sure many other services like the Byron Bay Youth House are hoping that this is not yet another political promise but indeed an action plan that will work in tackling this immense social challenge. The NationalYouth Coalition for Housing which was

established in the 90s supports the rights of all young people to safe, secure, affordable, adequate housing appropriate to the needs of the young person. It’s now time for governments to take action in order to make it a reality. To have your say regarding Youth Homelessness Matters forward your comments to Prime Minister Kevin Rudd via or to the Federal Minister for Housing Tanya Plibersek

GiveAway JESSE YOUNAN CDS Jesse Younan has just released his amazing new creation: A good Day for A Migraine. Recorded locally by Christian Pyle this is a must for your collection. Email au with subject header ‘good day’.


Sandy Gandhi is the alter ego of Sandy Aranha. This mouthy, matriarchal voice of treason is not just a comic character; she is an intellectual IVF, a physical phenomenon that sprang from the madcap mind of her mentor, after a handful of standup performances and a role in a local play. Over the last seven years Sandy has endeared herself as the authentic Indian, the real thing, not just a whitey with an Indian name. Earlier this year, Bangalow based Sandy returned to the Indian village where she was born, Bangalore, in a tour she joking referred to as ‘From Bangalow to Bangalore’. It was an emotional experience, a kind of spiritual and comic homecoming. ‘India was fantastic’, Sandy said, ‘I hadn’t been back in 21 years. The Hindu newspapaer in India wrote a story about me. The gig was amazing, there were three people in the audience I hadn’t seen since my tenth birthday, it was really emotional – the audience loved it, particularly the women. After the gig, the women mobbed me! They wanted my autograph and they wanted me to write my lines down and sign my name after it. The men loved it too – because they had never had so much lip from a middle aged Indian woman before! Women don’t behave like that in India, so it’s quite liberating!’ Sandy Gandhi is known for her rather brash manner, prone to the occasional bout of swearing. ‘I thought about not swearing, I am pretty careful, but the moment I mentioned the F word they went berserk, they loved having a middle aged woman saying “fuck” on stage.’ For Sandy it was only a matter of contextualising her material. ‘Having an understanding of culture certainly helped, but the Indians are very global in their thinking. One person asked me when I performed in India what language I did it in, I said, the only one I know!’ Sandy did her best while in India to stir up a bit of trouble – particularly when in came to gender relations. ‘They have this thing in India they call Eve teasing, where men sexually harass women all the time, some women have even committed suicide because of the shame from the continual teasing. They have had to take drastic measures with undercover cops, so I thought I’d do some Adam teasing, so the men got

to know what it was like, I dressed up as Sandy Gandhi and went with my friend John hn Sammaha. I would stand up againstt a pole and pick a bloke and say ‘hey darling let me ring your bell...’ They were e terrified!’ Sandy Gandhi andhi is such a powerful character, r, that the petite and softly spoken Sandy Ahrana is often dwarfed by her own powerful alter ego. ‘Since I’ve been doing Sandy Gandhi, people don’t realise I have another name! I have stood in supermarket queues where people have told me to go and watch my gig: “I’ve seen this comedian, you’re Indian, you should go. Her name’s Sandy Gandhi. So funny.” That comes from all of us Indians looking alike.’ Most people would be unaware that for nearly a decade Sandy has contributed to the community by working as a carer, providing support to the elderly, disabled and the mentally ill so they can live independently in their own homes in the community. She has only recently stopped working as a carer to concentrate on her career as a comedian. This week she performs at the Melbourne Comedy Festival on the Double Bill at Three Degrees Nightclub in Lonsdale Street. She was unearthed last year at Miss you Melbourne, an all female gig featuring women comics that had some sort of connections with Melbourne. ‘I’m an ex Melbourne girl, their slogan was “Melbourne a nice place to live”. I changed it to Melbourne, a nice place to leave.’ Sandy is also a regular featured columnist for The Northern Star, where she pens a weekly satirical column called ‘Enlighten Up.’ Each week she chooses a current event and performs a comic autopsy. Just recently, Wayne Carey got a serve in a column she called ‘Carry on Snorting’. Sandy will be launching a book of her columns at the Byron Writer’s Festival July this year. In the meantime, Sandy is presenting her next comedy cabaret, an event she cheekily calls ‘Undressed’ at the Byron Beach Resort. I attended the last one and it’s a riotous evening of curry on, both on stage and off. Mick Ayo serves up a delicious meal, and on stage delights are served up by Sandy Gandhi, John Samaha, Michael Sharman and a special guest, Taj Mahala (a Bluesfest leftover).

It’s a great chance to catch Sandy after a week at the Melbourne comedy festival and to support a community minded citizen now literally living off her wits. ‘I’ve been going around giving flyers saying look I’ve been coming to your work for nine years, it’s time you came to mine!’ Seating is limited so it’s recommended that you book in advance. Tix are $45 for dinner and show at the Byron Bay Beach Resort, Saturday 26 April with dinner from 6pm and a show at 8pm. Enquiries to 6687 1005 or sandy.

The Road to Petition The Soapbox Mandy Nolan

I am a petition signer. If there’s a cause that needs a name then I’m happy to add mine to the list. It gives me that warm inner glow, like I’ve personally helped stop logging palm oil forests in Indonesia and saved the orangutan. Meanwhile, I continue munching on my Kit-Kat, oblivious to the fact that it’s the political equivalent of biting into a furry orange leg. I have petitioned to stop highway noise, to bring the speed limit down near schools, to put in speed bumps, to stop sending our troops to Iraq, to say NO to GM crops, to free battery chickens, to give Prada bags to underprivileged girls living in the Western suburbs who are forced to shop at Rockmans, but you know what... I don’t think much has changed. I’ve been to the Western suburbs, and they’re still shopping at Rockmans. Apart from basking in the warm sunshine of sanctimonious righteousness every time I add my tiny name to a petition, I don’t think I’ve done anything much but added to an extensive list of citizens prone to dissident thought. Every time I sign a petition, I give my name and address. What for? A thank you letter from the whales? ‘Dear Mandy, I’m a 20 metre, 40 something humpback, who owes not being sushi to you. I’m cruising past Julian Rocks next, week, you want to hook up for coffee? I’m single right now, and lady you should see the size of my spout.’ I’m suspicious of the address component, it certainly cuts out a lot of time going through the phone book for ASIO

staff when they enter it into the ‘citizens of interest’ database. ‘Geez Barry, this Mandy Nolan from Mullumbimby is coming up a lot. Get the undercover hippy bloke from Main Arm to do a tail on her.’ ‘He’s too busy following the Mayor.’ The petition has become electronic. Pleading friends appeal to one’s higher self to spend a few minutes to complete an online e-protest. It’s only one delete button away from being spam. I’ve been getting one that asks me to register my outrage at the way China has been treating Tibet, and calls for Tibetan liberation and the freedom to establish an independent state. I totally agree, but I don’t reckon a petition is going to hold much sway with the Chinese government. We all remember Tienamen Square, where the government proved once and for all that you just can’t negotiate with a tank. I can see the scene in the private chambers of President Hu Jintao as his personal adviser and political strategist rushes to his side with a laptop. ‘Honorable President, we must stop persecuting the Dalai Lama and Tibetans, I’m very worried... we have a petition. Hu, these people are serious. They gave their names and addresses.’ ‘Really? Kill them, but slowly, add lead to the paint on their children’s toys.’ I will continue to sign petitions, but we are reaching a personal responsibility tipping point, where change can only be affected by action. If we want to protest Chinese treatment of Tibetans, then Australia should pull out of the Olympics. Australian atheletes need to boycott. I’m so serious, I’ve created a petition.


MUSIC THE SOUND OF THE BEACH Every day is a good day to head up to the Beachie (that’s local language for The Beach Hotel), but if you wanna catch some music here are some hot tips. Thursday features Method, an acoustic duo who perform original roots/ folk rock music. Guitarist Bill Jacobi and percussionist Frank Corby started Method 12 years ago in the Blue Mountains and continue to share the love. Friday sees The Healers, a trio direct from New York with a sound that is so explosive they could be up for some rather invasive examinations at customs! All three musos are indeed disciples of American Blues music... but, there’s a twist. Thomas delivers the gospel and soul heritages of his childhood, while Kevin and Dean infuse the music with their rock ancestries. This trinity melds a sound that audiences have come to describe as a ‘Comprehensive Healin’ Session.’ It’s time for the Visine on Saturday when The Red Eyes get your musical mouth watering. Considered by fans and music critics alike as one of the few authentic Dub/ Reggae groups to come out of Australia, The Red Eyes are a 10-piece monster band that has been shaking foundations around the country with their heavyweight bass and mindaltering Dub sound. Sunday features Blaze Fire Sound System bringing dance hall and root styles of sweet music, they contain the hard-hitting, fun-loving local legends DJ Crazy Dave along with everybody’s favourite MC Raz Bin Sam.

WHEN YOU WISH UPON A BLACK STAR The Black Stars kick off their EP tour on home turf at The Lennox Point Hotel on Friday. The indie grunge rock 3-piece is setting out to tour their second EP which has been produced once again by iconic Australian producer Phillip McKellar and is the followup to their acclaimed 2006 debut release. The new EP titled Money Or Your Life is set for release in May and has already been met with a positive industry response which has seen The Black Stars recently sign with Brisbane independent label SugarRush for worldwide distribution. The Stars will be on tour throughout April and May to promote the new release from Brisbane to Adelaide and everywhere in between, including a show with legendary US hard rock outfit Helmet. Catch The Stars at Lennox Point Hotel supported by locals Stone Country Punks and Gold Coast’s Up The Anti.

BIG BIRD Over the last 12 years The Bird has established a solid reputation as one of Australia’s finest live electronic dance outfits. As musicians, The Bird have sought an organic interpretation of computergenerated forms of music, combining live Drum’n’Bass, Breakbeats and electro synth lines with sounds from the Asian Underground and some serious dub vibes. Their music is a journey through these numerous influences and stylistics, executed in a funkafied soulful electronica sound that is their trademark style. The Bird have toured Australia and overseas extensively playing at many venues and festivals including Glastonbury Festival, Falls Festival, Adelaide Fringe, Woodford Festival, Two Tribes, the Opera House Studios and Earthcore to name but a few. They will be performing at the A&I Hall as part of a short east coast tour to promote Re-inventions. A new studio album will be released later on in 2008. The Bird play at Coorabell Hall on Sunday. Food available at show by Open Table.

Elizabeth Lord and Leigh James will be there, singing and playing as heartfelt as ever, demonstrating how fine and polished and professional a musical duo can possibly get.

Also for their first appearance, Inana’s Wish will bring us Celtic dreamsongs with the pipes and guitar and of course Island Heart and the Hulahines will set you up with South Pacific vibes, sweet harmonies and hip-swaying hula dancing. The news of the night though, will be a final rousing dance set from the fabulous Romaniacs, a fitting Celtic sendoff for Mook on his heritage-seeking journey to the land of his ancestors. To help finance his trip Mook is raffling a beautiful Yamaha Classical concert guitar. It’s a cutaway nylon-string electricacoustic with sophisticated electronics and a solid foam and canvas lightweight travel case. Altogether a great $700 package to be raffled at the April 30 North Coast Uke Collective gathering at the Byron Bowlo.

SPREADING RUMOURS Dan Rumour and the Drift are set to launch their new creative project with the band and getting ready to embark on an 11 date East Coast run. Thursday sees the band hit the main stage at the Hotel Great Northern, with cool original laid back grooves, this is a dark and gritty gig that you should know about. The opening spot is from Black Train from South Lismore, singing their eclectic mix of mid 20th century Southern American folk songs. So just who are the dark faces behind Dan Rumour and The Drift? Well, they’d be Dan Rumour, and Jim from the Cruel Sea with Nick and Michael Turner playing instrumentals. You probably think it sounds a bit like the Cruel Sea. And it probably will, because these guys created the foundation of the sound... I surveyed numerous punters about Blues Fest and asked the pertinent question: what was the pick of the fest? The Best in Show? Without fail every person I asked said The Cruel Sea played an awesome show. Catch them on Thursday.

OUT OF THE BLUEHOUSE As one of Australia’s premier independent bands, Bluehouse have stamped out their own unique style by combining folk-flavoured pop melodies meshed with powerfully intricate harmonies and inspired guitar and bass playing (along with healthy doses of sardonic wit thrown in between songs)! Jacqueline Walter and Bernadette Carroll met in a pub in Melbourne in 1995 and moments later were singing together on stage. They have since forged a successful career, by honing their performance skills through beautiful singing, clever thinking and near constant touring. They

have consistently received five-star reviews from critics and created a loyal fan base all over the world. Bluehouse have shared the stage with Neil Young, Cowboy Junkies, UB40, Elvis Costello, Tommy Emmanuel, Neil Finn and many other artists. The Sydney Morning Herald recognized the band’s essential eclecticism, terming their music ‘delicious folk-pop... tinged at times with sweet gospel soul, before plunging into raucous guitar riffs’ and ‘exuberant, sad, wise, harmonically dazzling... a lively display of both instrumental and a cappella with attitude and polished pop.’ They play the Bangalow Catholic Hall on Thursday April 17 at 7pm. Tix at the door.

TOTALLY ADDICTED TO BASS A unique opportunity is offered to professional musicians, music students and music teachers in the Byron Shire when top Australian bass player Steven Elphick (active on the Australian creative music scene since the late seventies. He has performed with many of the seminal groups of the 80’s and 90’s) when he visits between April 7 – 12. Steven will be running a public workship at the Suffolk Park Community Hall on April 11 at 5pm – 8pm. Phone Grace on 6685 4453 for details.

THORNE BY YOUR SIDE One of Australia’s finest singer-songwriters and most gorgeous voices returns to the north coast for two special evening concerts. Lucie Thorne creates ‘an oasis of musical beauty which is completely entrancing and stunningly beautiful’ (Canberra Times). With two electric guitars, Thorne and long-time collaborator Heath Cullen deliver distinctive heartof-winter folk songs and rugged, spacious rock n roll, with a warmth and intimacy for which their shows are becoming renowned in every corner of the country. She is joined by Ghost Mountain at the Drill Hall in Mullumbimby on Saturday. Ghost Mountain is the new musical project

of local treasure and former ACRE frontman Christian Pyle, teaming up with the formidable talents of singer Sal Yates. Add to this a rhythm section made up of the very best players Byron’s green hills can boast, and a bunch of killer songs. Ghost Mountain has quietly been making a name for itself along the East Coast. On Sunday Lucie Thorne plays Repentance Creek Hall with Jackie Marshall.

grandeur of the male experience. The repertoire is grounded in Georgian male vocal traditions and spiced with Stephen Taberner’s gorgeously quirky original songs and arrangements of appropriate classics. The Spooky Men’s Chorale play the A&I Hall on Tuesday April 22. Tix are at the door for $20/18 or they can be booked by emailing


BANGING IT OUT AT THE WINSOME If you missed them at this year’s Blues and Roots Festival, you can get up close and intimate with the full crew from the SambaBlissta Bongo Team! This Saturday at The Winsome Hotel in Lismore from 9pm, dress in your best Carnaval colors and be ready to shake what your mum gave you!!! Their first Album In your Incus is also available. This is a hot and sweaty event. You will not only have fun, you’ll burn those calories.





SPOOKY MEN Genial buffoonery and immaculate, testosterone drenched vocals define the Spooky Men’s Chorale, a ruthless bunch of larrikins led by Stephen Taberner, double bassist/songwriter in another life. Their stated ambition is to make women weep, small children quail, and insurance salesmen vaguely aware that somewhere, there is a whole world they’ve never experienced. The Spooky Men’s Chorale was formed by its director Stephen Taberner in 2001 as a projectbased male a cappella choir. Once established in the Blue Mountains of NSW, Australia, they rapidly developed an audience and a reputation for novel repertoire, strong musical values and entertaining performances. In 2004 they emerged definitively onto the Australian music festival scene and have since gone on to play shows at the National Folk Festival, Woodford Folk Festival, Bellingen Global Carnival and tour the UK including an appearance at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival.The Spooky Men’s musical ethos can best be described as a celebration of the pointless

multilayered perspectives on Kedamaian: a harmony with the self, nature and the environment. The exhibition opens at the Waywood Gallery this Friday and artists Anna Niblic-Heggie and Muhammad Bundhowi will both be present.



CULTURE THEATRE AUDITIONS AUDITIONS AUDITIONS Firetrax have been entertaining audiences on the North Coast for the last 16 years. For them, creating theatre for kids that is challenging, exciting and fun has been one of their greatest joys. And of course, hearing children laugh. Director Pauline Ranscombe is interested in hearing from anyone who would like to audition for the next production which will be in July. The shows will be held in the Bangalow A&I Hall. Males and females from 18 to 70 years are welcome to audition, or you might like to join the production team and learn about the many aspects of theatre. Anyone interested phone Pauline on 6687 1998

LECTURE MONET MONET MONET... IT’S A RICH MAN’S WORLD ADFAS Byron Bay and District will be hosting a lecture ‘Reviled or Revered: Monet in Paris & London’ presented by Lizzie Darbyshire, who specialises in 19th century British and French art. The lecture will explore Monet’s artistic growth from reviled Impressionist to revered

French artist. The name Claude Monet is well known throughout the art world but how well do people really know his work? Few know about his first views of Paris that include some 12 views of Gare St Lazare, seven of which were exhibited at the 3rd Impressionist Exhibition in 1877. He also painted over 90 canvases of London in the 1900’s, a nostalgic view of the city bathed in light or consumed by fog, including The Thames at Westminster. The lecture will be held on Monday April 14 at the Bangalow Catholic Hall at 7.30pm. Guests are welcome to attend at a cost of $20, which includes supper. If you have always lamented that you just can’t meet brainy people into the Impressionist movement, now’s your chance baby.

PERFORMANCE CATCHING THE WAVE The Shearwater Steiner school is happy to again present a Wearable Arts Vision in Education. The theme for this year 2008 is ‘Alchemia’ with the focus on transformation. Alchemy in short means, turning base metal into gold. Everyday materials and day-to-day human interrelationships and their responses become the ingredients for the creative

crucible from which magical art pieces emerge. The show is scheduled for May 7 – 10 and tickets can be bought by calling 6684 3223.

ART WAYWOOD HARMONY The story behind this Waywood exhibition is quite lovely. Already a long time friend of Indonesian artist Muhammad Bundhowi, local artist Anna NiblicHeggie met Sandra Philips in Bali in 2002 during a cultural exchange. Her initial enthusiasm at the reception in Indonesia was soon replaced by utter dismay when the bombings occurred the night she left Bali for Java. Bundhowi, who helped the police in identifying the corpses of friends and neighbours, had a even more deeply disturbing experience. And so, in mutual sadness and frustration, the three artists began what was to become an endless exchange of emails on reconnection, global peace, cultural understandings, the role of the artist, etc... These exchanges, over time, grew into a project involving the three artists. It’s an exhibition which has been an evolving one, not unlike their works in which photography, mixed media and collage offer very original

The work of local artist Ken Johnson will be known to many visitors to the Tweed River Art Gallery. Susi Muddiman, Director says, ‘As an artist of national significance, it is fitting that Tweed River Art Gallery host an exhibition surveying forty years of Ken Johnson’s practice. Ken is an artist who is driven and energetic. Since an early age he has been a gatherer of information and an explorer. Having commenced painting at a very early age, his curiosity and thirst for knowledge has led him to investigate the cultures and landscapes of the world. Each of these journeys have contributed to his work, each expedition weaving in a new aesthetic to his practice. When Ken travels with his family, he sets up house, settles in and interacts with the community – absorbing the new culture, which in turn influences his style and technique, imbuing his work with a taste of the richness of his adopted ethnicity. His eye for detail is evidenced in his depiction of the minutiae of his environments – thus we are treated to his skilfully rendered depictions of peeling paint, fissures in concrete and tracks in the sand.’ Although Ken is primarily known as a painter, this exhibition also showcases drawings, photography and sculpture. Open Spaces / Other Places: a 40 year survey is a timely exhibition, and one that the Tweed River Art Gallery is very pleased to present. His extraordinary retrospective is on show for the next six weeks.

JUST JIMBO AT COMEDY CAFE Standup comedian Jimbo is something of an enigma. For a start he’s a standup comedian who’s also good looking. He’s a modern day swagman, a comedian who has taken his craft to the road. He’s a country boy who packed up his car and decided that instead of waiting for gigs to come to him, he would go to them.

EDUCATIONAL BEATS AND RHYMING TREATS While raised in Mount Isa, Rangimarie’s roots connect her to Aotearoa and a place called Rotorua where volcanoes are active, hot spas are natural and extreme sports are part of everyday life. Rangimarie is a Maori from the Te Arawa tribe and her mother’s teachings of Maori culture etched itself into playing an influential role in Rangimarie’s future play.



standup comedian spends a good part of his year touring the country, performing in comedy clubs in the major cities, teaching kids clowning in country towns by day and by night Jimbo hosts ‘The Big Night Out’ an unpredictable but always outrageous R rated pub show. It goes like this. Jimbo pulls into town, approaches a pub about putting on a night, and before you know it everyone from miles around has piled in. Jimbo is outrageous, and when he’s around you just don’t know what will happen. He has that adorable charm, and women audience members have remarked: Oh my god – a good looking comic! He’s a lovable rogue, a very naughty boy who loves to stir up a bit of fun with the crowd. Jimbo doesn’t write the show, he just lets it happen. What makes Jimbo’s show different from any other comedian is his use of the audience. He doesn’t pick on people, he just encourages them to hijack the stage. The results are extraordinary. For those who stay ‘til the end, the night ends up being the ultimate entertainment package: A unique tapestry of high and low art, where the crowd and performers are merged into one. Jimbo started comedy back in 1999, when he performed his first standup act at an open mic night at Sydney’s Comedy Store. Later on that year he came third in ‘Sydney’s comic of the year’ competition. Since then he’s

gone onto become a headline comedy act, right across the country. Like lots of comics, Jimbo has a dark secret. He is also a clown. In 1994, Jimbo traveled to Wisconsin, USA, to participate in Clown Camp at the University of La Crosse. In essence, Jimbo’s show is a combination of standup comedy, circus skills, and extensive crowd interaction. If the crowd is really open-minded, Jimbo closes the show with real life road stories and a montage of video footage from his craziest outback gigs. Jimbo is the feature at this month’s Cafe Comedy at Bang Thai in Bangalow. MC is our very own Ellen Briggs, the Mullum Mum who makes a living from telling it how it is. She’s the reluctant maternal figure, the dry witted, unimpressed mother of twins who looks at their drawings and mutters ‘gees that’s crap.’ She is joined by support act Paul McMahon, State Finalist for RAW comedy in Queensland this year. Paul is a fresh new talent on the circuit with an intuition for unique and cutting edge material. Join this triple bill on Friday at 6.30pm for dinner, followed by the show. Tickets are $35 and include a Bang Thai two course dinner and the show. Previous shows have sold out so book early to avoid disappointment at the Bang Thai at 37 Byron Street, Bangalow or by calling the Café Comedy line on 6687 2000.

The 80’s was all Hip Hop and Break Dance to Rangimarie’s ears. ’...the era for jumping up and down on your bed with the hair brush as a microphone... there was no stopping us.’ As MC Ms eXotic she delivers today’s issues with poignancy. When teaching, the focus is on groups of young people devising rap and rhymes, spoken word and songs based on their own experiences using their own style of expression and language. ‘Educational Beats’ is a vehicle for Rangimarie to teach lyricism and songwriting. ‘Rap, write, sing, record, perform, be seen and heard, represent, the choice is yours.’ Educational Beats has written and recorded with over 3000 youth in the region through development programs like NORPA Dance Action, HYPER Links for Learning, Love Bites early prevention program and Building Respectful Relationships. Rangimarie is tutoring in High Schools, Youth Centres, Tafe and communities. Her workshops also involve recording CDs and producing video clips to further young people being SEEN, HEARD and REPRESENTED. Q: How will you apply the principal of Educational Beats at Rukkus? A: ‘This year at Rukkus we’ll be creating involvement with young and old through Hip Hop, Rap and Rhyme. Through ‘Sound Board’ which is a ‘Word Board’ where everyone is invited to contribute a witty,

relevant, conscious, meaningful or nonsensical but great sounding word around the subject of ‘Skate Safe’ and ‘Community’. It will supply the lyrical content for the up and coming spontaneous ‘Rappers Inside Of All’ to bounce off during the one hour Hip Hop bracket. MC Ms eXotic, ‘Takin’ it straight off the topics will demonstrate, communicate and support to facilitate create the level, stage, platform for all to be heard and performed’. It will be a very practical and reachable goal for anyone who is willing to give it a G.O. not to mention the Heap Pa Stack A Fun you can have. Compile a CD of the ‘Hip Hop Rukkus’ and the ‘Educational Beats’ collection series. I will be straight up now, it’s the ART in the CRAFT, strictly NO verbal violation in the communication, U all get what I mean every rhyme has its time ...’

create and make a difference in other people’s lives as well as their own.’

Q: Why do you teach? A: ‘Educating youth about issues of domestic violence and sexual assault, cutting straight to the chase hooking them all up with the real services, real people and support. I teach because the art of being heard is a skill.’

Q: Being indigenous yourself, how does it affect you when working with Aboriginal people and how do you think it affects them? A: ‘Makes you proud and strong to share your story good and bad.’

Q: Where and when do you teach? A: ‘I will be running the eight week Hip Hop course from the YAC in Byron Bay from April 30 until June 11 every Wednesday.’ Since 1996 Rangiemarie is actively involved with the Youth and Recreational Facility Inc. who are ‘dreaming up’ a Mullumbimby Youth Centre. ‘I am the Vice President of MYRF Inc. and I invite all in the community to view and support.’ Building plans are drawn and over $30,000 have been raised towards manifesting this dream. Q: Who inspires you? A: ‘Inspired by people who can

Q: I got a bit of Swiss Hip-Hop from my nephew in Switzerland, they rap in French and Swiss-German, do you rap in different languages? A: ‘I have been rapping in native tongue. Languages are the way of the world.’ Q: Do some indigenous kids rap in their tribe’s dialect? A: ‘Yeah indigenous kidz rapp’n all the time in their lingo. Every group of kidz got their own language going on you would be surprised, even non indigenous.’ Q: Do you give workshops that are specifically for indigenous teens? A: ‘Have done with the Koori mob, we connect, it’s a cultural thing. You can teach all people culture through music.’

Q: What’s the lineup at Rukkus, who is involved with what you’re doing? A: ‘Special guests Tripple Nip and K.M.C. will be on the team and if we’re lucky Granny Rapper and the 2008 Aussie Battlers beat boxer champ will join us too and hopefully D Ms Defy. We invite all Rap artists, beat boxers and masters of word-to-music from our area code.’ Q: Do you skate? A: ‘... in my dreams.’ Get your boards to Mullum Skate Park this Saturday and register for the SKATE COMPETITION by noon ‘cos this whole ruckus will be over by 6pm!

ARIES: Think you’re Superman? Wonderwoman? Even though you’re notorious for not taking advice, it’s in your own best interests for you Who Do Too Much not to overextend yourself physically, emotionally, financially or verbally during this rip roaring, gale force week.

GEMINI: This hot and happening week of zoom and enthusiasm is just your speed: fast and furious. But not all plain sailing – expect differences of opinion and volatile responses. During this transit others are monumentally touchy and easily offended - even a casual comment can shatter goodwill. CANCER: Handle this fiery, full on week with your trademark lateral Crab strategies: the signature sidestep out of the firing line, replying to tricky questions with other questions… Not seeing people as enemies leaves the door open for them to become your allies. LEO: As this week’s confrontational citizens barge round trying to take charge, rather than letting their mad antics get your back up remember the more they take on the less you have to. Handle

all dramas matter of factly – including your own. VIRGO: Explosive emotions, tantrums, dummy spits and histrionics could all be colorful threads in this week’s tapestry – but you don’t have to engage with argumentative, antagonistic types. Keep cool and work off agitation – physical activity’s this week’s best stress release recommendation. LIBRA: This week’s calculated to tax Libran equilibrium to the max with everyone wanting everything yesterday and acting up if they don’t get it. Partners are likely to be more demanding than usual, but on the upside creative juices are bubbling and energy levels peaking. SCORPIO: Right now the force is so awesomely with you that you may have to ease up a little on the intensity or lesser beings could sustain scorch marks. Give your mind a specific project so it doesn’t waste this week’s brilliant initiative stirring the pot instead of achieving miracles. SAGITTARIUS: This passionate week has fabulous aspect for travel, creative sparks, meeting new people or striking out in a new direction.

Its fiery vibes carry a high accident rating though, so take extra care and stay aware when changing your mind – especially behind the wheel. CAPRICORN: Things that formerly seemed important could lose their imperative as new perspectives and realizations take their place. Take the best from what’s leaving your life and move on. Present changes open a new path asking you to make healthy choices for your future financial security. AQUARIUS: Just the kind of exuberant, let’s do it week Aquarians find stimulating. But it’s also a turbulent, accident-accelerating transit, so check any tendency to be hasty, impatient, speedy or too insistent with outspoken opinions, because others are touchy and combustible. PISCES: This week’s people could be inconsiderate or hurtful without realizing or meaning to – not everyone expresses their feelings as easily as Pisceans. Hint: little gifts and love treats to soothe the cosmic heat could make this a very memorable week in the romance department.

The last six months have seen an uninterrupted run of successes by Ganguly, including a tie for the Commonwealth title and the Indian Championship, his fourth national title. At the Sydney International, in a field featuring a record 10 grandmasters, Ganguly took an early lead and then coasted to victory. Although Ganguly’s final day of quiet draws disappointed the spectators and allowed three others, including Coffs Harbour’s Zhao Zong Yuan, to catch him on the line, the Indian knew that his tiebreak score would be enough to ensure that the 2008 SIO title

CINEMA THE DIVING BELL AND THE BUTTERFLY At 43, Jean-Dominique Bauby, the handsome, high flying editor of Elle magazine, had a stroke which left him paralysed from head to toe. Over the next couple of years, until his death in 1997, he collaborated with his therapist Claude in writing a memoir, communicating with her by blinking his eye to indicate every letter of every word. Their method was painstaking and slow, and hardly the stuff to appeal to an industry that gorges itself on celebrity, guns and soft porn. That it made it to the screen is almost as miraculous as the story itself, but we should be thankful that it did, for this is a magnificent movie. It opens with Jean-Do returning to consciousness after being in a coma for three weeks. We see what he sees and hear his internal

commentary, which is inaudible to those treating him. If that device fails to put you in his world then the sewing up of his right eye surely does. Psychologically, it is a moment more terrifying than you can be prepared for. If the point had not been made beforehand, you now know good and proper that fate, as he describes it, has cast him to the extreme edge of life. Similar in many ways to ‘The Sea Inside’ (2004), especially in its refusal to ignore the bloke’s sense of humour and erotic impulses, it differs by not embroiling itself in the euthanasia debate. Only once, when he tells Claude that he wants death, does it raise its head, but it is summarily dismissed by her in one of many unforgettable scenes, all of which are perfectly placed to balance light and shade. There is the black friend who reads Graham Greene to him with his feet on the bed; the pissed-off cry Jean-Do wants

to make when an orderly turns off the TV in the middle of the footy; the dreamy connection with the 19th century Empress Eugénie in the hospital’s corridors; the children on the beach and Jean-Do’s gaze being drawn to his wife’s thighs as a sea breeze lifts her summer dress; a visit to Lourdes and, a personal favourite, the recollection of shaving his father (the aged Max von Sydow is superb). Jean-Do’s experience is no joke, but its tragedy is not milked, for ultimately he rejects self-pity and is sustained by those mighty life enforcers, memory and indefatigable imagination. Immensely sad, but triumphant as well. ~ John Campbell

THE SPIDERWICK CHRONICLES What are loosely and often snootily referred to as kids’ movies are increasingly more worthy of consideration than many of those made for adults. It is not only CGI and the remarkable developments in animation that have contributed to this, for accompanying them has been a willingness to touch on subjects hitherto rarely dealt with in the early Disney days. Not that this extravagant fantasy cooks up its magic without a lot of standard ingredients. There are charms, secret passages, a protective circle beyond which the odious hobgoblins cannot pass and even a magnificent Munster-style gabled house in the autumn woods. It’s the sort of place that nobody in their right mind would go into in the first place, but the Grace family – Mum, teenage daughter Mallory and the twins, Jared and Simon – lob there from FULLY AIR-CONDITIONED EVERY WEDNESDAY ALL SEATS ALL SESSIONS $8 ONLY

New York. It was once owned by great-grandfather Arthur Spiderwick, a sort of Charles Darwin of the supernatural world, who has been transported by sylphs to his own private neverland. The leather-bound writings and illustrations which he left behind contain knowledge which Mulgarath (has a monster ever been better named?) would employ to realise his dastardly ambition. Jared comes into possession of the volume and, backed up by his siblings, he stands between Mulgarath, inarticulate but able to transform himself into anything, and his raving megalomania. But it’s a close run thing, as you’d expect. The central theme is of good versus evil, combined with the evergreen phobia inspired by the prospect of big power falling into the wrong hands. But, as revealed in the premayhem scenes, there is also a family crisis to be dealt with. Jared has reacted badly to his father’s unexplained absence, having not been told that Dad has run off with another woman. The boy is not immediately likeable, but the other mob make him look good. There is an extended siege, with Mulgaruth’s final trick being an old chestnut. It’s something that, if you are on your toes, you’ll call before it happens, but so neatly put together is the plot that it works as one of those surprises that makes you nod appreciatively with an ‘oh, yes, I should have known.’ Entirely unflagged, however, is the manner in which the past is reunited with the present in a delightful moment with doe-eyed Joan Plowright. Sweet pathos gushes and I’ll be damned if it doesn’t get a bit weepy. ~ John Campbell

2 DAYS IN PARIS 2 Days in Paris stars Julie Delpy as Marion, and boyfriend Jack (Adam Goldberg) who arrive in Paris, which is supposed to be the City of Lovers, for what ends up being two unexpected, hilarious, conflict-filled days. There’s an enchanting quirkiness about 2 Days in Paris, which is entirely due to Delpy, who wrote (script and music), directed, edited and is the film’s star. Like the two films in which Delpy starred

with Ethan Hawke (Before Sunrise and Before Sunset), the film is character-driven with dialogue that flows smoothly. This is a funny, fresh, romantic comedy that tackles love, sex and the complexities of life from a French point of view. Of course the ambience of the city is stunning in itself, and lures us into its magical spell; the film is fun while laughing at human weaknesses with no punches pulled. ~ Lounge Cinema

Television Guide 1. The Sweetest Thing (Ten, Friday 8.30pm) is a chick ďŹ&#x201A;ick, but a guilty delight nonetheless. Cameron Diaz, Christina Applegate and Selma Blair make the comedy work. 2. Best movie of the week by a wide margin is Good Night and Good Luck (SBS, Sunday 8.30pm). Director George Clooney aims at the present Washington administration with David Strathairn playing Edward R Murrow, the journalist who nailed the lies of Senator McCarthy during a previous episode of American political extremism. 3. A Canadian ďŹ lm takes a new line on Snow White, the Fairest of Them All (NBN, Tuesday noon) with the reliable Miranda Richardson as the wicked old queen.

All my research and asking around of acquaintances have failed to answer that most important question: should passionfruit seeds be crunched or simply swallowed whole? All my life Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve crunched them down with vigour, enjoying the crack of collision with back molars; my boyfriend is horriďŹ ed. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve been crunching with pleasure a lot lately, regardless of rectitude, because passionfruit are everywhere and absolutely gorgeous. Late summer is their time â&#x20AC;&#x201C; so in stores like Santos and at markets you will see boxes of them, often the size of cricket balls.

This weekâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s special

Grown on vines â&#x20AC;&#x201C; vines, moreover, which climb and spread rampantly, clinging by tendrils to almost any support and even becoming a nuisance â&#x20AC;&#x201C; passionfruit are native to the Amazon, a tropical fruit named by the Spanish missionaries in South America who saw the Passion, or suffering, of Christ represented in its beautiful ďŹ&#x201A;owers (the ten petals symbolising the ten disciples present at the cruciďŹ xion, the thin tendrils the whips scourging Christ, the nails, the wounds and the Crown of Thorns). There are two distinctly different types, the bright yellow and the dark purple. The latter, despite its smaller size and wrinkled demeanour, is generally sweeter, with a higher proportion of juice. Both have tough rinds and spongy cavities which contain the tangy, tart, musky juice and approximately 250 small hard seeds, crunchable or otherwise. The fruit turns quickly from green to deep purple or yellow when ripe, then falls to the ground. This is what is going on now in our perfect-forpassionfruit region. Friends regale me with passionfruit stories, because gluts are a common thing: Wendy reminisces fondly about a childhood when, at this time of year, their vine yielded such a harvest of the fruit that she and her siblings drank passionfruit juice every single day, full glasses of it. Chryss one year in Far North Queensland actually lived on passionfruit for about a month, out of both convenience and necessity, supplementing the diet with little else: she claims it was one of the happiest and healthiest periods of her life.

like tiny jewels â&#x20AC;&#x201C; and their place on the iconically Australian pavlova most ďŹ rmly there. And this is it â&#x20AC;&#x201C; their value for me lies more in the way they may embellish a dish or constitute an element thereof, than in being something I might pluck from a fruit bowl. (Although having said that I will hasten to mention the pleasure to be had from halving a passionfruit and either slurping or spooning out its contents into my mouth. Even then it feels more like a cocktail than food.) Here are three ways with passionfruit, uses to which you may put your surfeit. Bearing in mind that they will last for several weeks anyway, and that both the fruit and its juice freeze well: â&#x20AC;˘ Make a tropical Tiramisu by beating together 300 mls thickened cream, 250 gr. mascarpone, 1/2 cup icing sugar mixture, 1 tspn grated lime rind and 1/2 cup passionfruit pulp â&#x20AC;&#x201C; beat until soft peaks form. In a separate bowl combine 1 cup orange juice with 1/4 cup lime juice, 1/4 cup Cointreau and 1/4 cup caster sugar stir to dissolve the sugar then dip in sponge ďŹ nger biscuits. Arrange half in a serving dish, dollop over half the cream mixture, layer on the rest of the dunked biscuits and ďŹ nish off with the remaining cream. Chill overnight and decorate with passionfruit pulp. â&#x20AC;˘ Toss together 2 sliced avocados, 1 cup sliced pawpaw, 100 gr. baby spinach leaves, 4 stalks sliced celery and 1 thinly sliced red onion in a large bowl, then dress with a blend of 1 juiced lemon, 1 juiced orange, 3 tspns extra virgin olive oil, 2 tblspns chopped fresh mint and the pulp of 4 passionfruit â&#x20AC;&#x201C; season to taste. â&#x20AC;˘ Or make this icecream you donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t even need to churn, by beating together 5 egg yolks and 250 gr. caster sugar till ďŹ&#x201A;uffy, folding in 600 mls. whipped thickened cream, then 5 egg whites beaten till stiff, 250 mls. passionfruit pulp and 50 mls. Cointreau. Pour into container, cover with plastic wrap and freeze.

Apart from crunching the seeds, I always actually regard them as a sort of non-fruit. Really, thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s no ďŹ&#x201A;esh to them at all, just this seedy pulp ingestible within seconds. Of course they make beautiful embellishments to fruit salads, the seeds glittering

At the recent Australian International Beer Awards, Dukeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Premium European Style Lager, Pale Ale and Mid-Strength Lager each received Bronze medals within their class. Burleigh Brewing Company brews and bottles its range of Duke Beers at its multi-million dollar facility on a hilltop behind Burleigh Heads using traditional brewing methods. There are no shortcuts, no sugar, no pasteurisers and no chemical additives or artiďŹ cial processes to speed things up â&#x20AC;&#x201C; instead this company allows its beers to ferment and age naturally to create real, full-ďŹ&#x201A;avour beer, the freshest in the region. It also limits the distance it lets its beer travel. Duke Beer is ďŹ nding its way on to shelves and into fridges at bottleshops, bars and restaurants throughout a region stretching four hours in all directions from the brewery.

Sports Roundup with Eve Jeffery

High tech puts writing on the wall for glorious uncertainty John Campbell The Brits spent g’zillions on a new terminal for Heathrow Airport. It was state of the art, it was programmed to the nth, it was bigger than Ben Hur. Half an hour after opening it was a shambles. Mere ‘teething problems’ they may have been, but the chaos into which travellers were thrown underlined once more that technology’s promised inf allibility remains geekdom’s pie in the sky. But still the microchip makes irreversible inroads into every facet of human activity. The recent frenzy of world record breaking at the Australian swimming championships came to you courtesy of the remarkable gizmos that are able to measure time to a hundredth of a second. But at what point does such whiz-bangery begin to pollute the essence of what we love about sport? Michel Platini, one of France’s greatest ever footballers and now EUFA President, last month unequivocally put the boot into I, Robot’s participation in soccer when he emerged as the recalcitrant Frog who would not have a bar of the multiangled goal line slo-mos developed by Australian company Hawk-Eye. It was an astonishing rejection of modernity by a gargantuan sporting body. Platini’s opponents, one of

whom is Arsenal manager and fellow Frenchman, Arsene Wenger, insist that there can be no argument against getting it right and if repeated viewing of twelve different camera shots is what that takes, then so be it. Closer to home, ABC Grandstand’s David Morrow and Warren Ryan harped throughout the 2007 NRL season that the video ref must be called upon to

determine knock-ons, ballstrips and any number of contentious rulings that have been influencing games for time out of mind. This year they’ve got what they wanted and the innovation has universally given players and fans a severe dose of the Edgar Britts. There is nothing worse than having the frenetic action of the footy halted while some bloke in the grandstand with his tea and

muffins studies the screen at his leisure to determine whose hand or foot was where. The delay is unappreciated – when it happens again and again it is infuriating. Sepp Blatter, the Swiss potentate who heads FIFA, in step with Platini and frustrated league fans, has said trenchantly and often that the game should not be stopped. It is, he insists, the consid-

eration that must take precedence over all others. But it is more likely a case of horses for courses. The first photo-finish apparatus installed at a race track was at Hialeah, Florida, in 1936 (Day at the Races pipped the whimsically named Your Nag), and nobody today would dream of leaving to the naked eye a blistering flash past the winning post. Likewise for Olympic gold, over which we cravenly and jingoistically slobber. It is not the sort of glittering prize to be awarded by a mere mortal’s judgement. The photo finish has been employed at the six-ringed circus since Stockholm in 1912. Cricket, though, is another kettle of fish. Tragics who can accept that it is perfectly appropriate for a contest to run for five days and still end in a draw are hard-wired to appreciate boredom. Samuel Beckett, it has been claimed, hatched the idea for Waiting for Godot while standing at fine leg for the Dublin University XI. Hanging on the outcome of an attempted stumping while the third umpire scrutinises it for the umpteenth, s-l-o-w-e-s-t time is no stretch for the connoisseur of tedium. (And is there anybody who doesn’t know by now that ‘on the line is out’? Or does Tubby need to tell us again as part of his mind

numbing logorrhoea?) At a sweltering limited overs game in February, I had the weirdest sensation that the Earth had stopped turning when an appeal was sent upstairs for adjudication. For a few leaden moments, I felt a rare sense of communion with my fellow man. Like Randall MacMurphy after his lobotomy, thousands of us gazed at the giant screen, glass eyed and sweaty, hoping fervently that the pesky Indian would be seen to be out of his ground and sent packing. The red ‘Out’ was greeted with cheering much wilder than it could ever have been if the dismissal was immediate. The sport which might benefit most from the humblest of inventions, a stopwatch, is boxing, but it remains with its feet firmly planted in the bloody ground from which it sprang. When a fighter is knocked down he has ten seconds to get to his feet, but the speed of that duration’s passing is at the whim of the referee. Mercifully, numerous long and short counts have not forced the fight game out of its pre-Gatesian mindset. Applauding from the bleachers would be M. Platini, a Gallic symbol of man’s deepest desire to retain his perfectly flawed humanity. week. 14/4 Rnd 6 Byron Health Foods Comp: Div 1; 5pm G Davis v M Underwood, B Trivett v B Staff, L Powell Bye.

Sports Roundup with Eve Jeffery Rugby great hones local kids skills Former Australian Rugby League Great Graham Eadie attended a skills test competition at Mullumbimby last Wednesday. Students from St John’s Primary School took part in the Aussie Sport Skills Contest held at the Les Donnelly Field, Mullumbimby. The Aussie Sport Skills Contest tests the students’ skills in kicking goals and field goals, performing accurate grubber and punt kicks, passing the football and sprinting over 40 metres. A team of local footballers including Mullumbimby Giants President Mr Scott Hogan and the coach of Mullumbimby Giants Group 1 premiership winning side, Mr Damon Scott, joined former rugby league great and Aussie Sport Skills Ambassador, Graham Eadie in testing the skills of all year 5 and 6 students. The Aussie Sport Skills Contest is part of a national contest in which students are tested at a local level and over time their results are compared to those of other students across the nation. The best performances from each school/club are posted on the internet ena-

The Hotel Great Northern Rams went to Ballina to play last year’s premiers Richmond Rovers in the semi finals of the ANZAC Cup full of optimism after a succession of promising results in the earlier rounds. However it was Rovers who did a lot of the early running and the Rams seemed to be under pressure from the onset. By the 20 minute mark the Rovers were ahead after a fine header from outside the box found the net. The Rams rallied after being 1-0 down and almost scored the equaliser when a shot from Bruce sailed over the bar. To their credit Rovers continued to attack and broke through for another goal when the Rovers player found himself 1 on 1 with our keeper. Two nil to Rovers and more to come with two more goals to make the half time score 4-0. The second half saw the Rams become more competitive after the coach made some telling changes to the team. The defence became steadier and the Rams started to build up from the back. A number of chances were

Sports Medicine Australia recommends all coaches undertake a sport safety course to educate themselves on injury management. ‘Sports Medicine Australia offers a range of courses on the prevention, assessment, management and referral of sporting injuries. ‘These courses provide coaches, regardless of their sport, with the practical skills of injury prevention and immediate injury management,’ said Sports Medicine Australia’s National Training Manager, Mark Brown.

They are sponsored by their employer to help a not-for-profit organisation of their choice. National Australia Bank allows them time off on full pay and use of the business car.

Involvement with their local community enhances businesses profiles and keeps them in touch with changing social patterns. Involvement can be simple or complex, ranging from an ongoing

Transition Initiatives

The 3rd Annual Ocean Shores Country Club Art Exhibition, held from March 31 to April 2, was a great success again this year and attracted 31 artists from Brisbane to Ballina. The opening night and awarding of prizes was well attended by artists, friends and the community at large. Viewers and artists expressed how impressed they were with the high standard of art on display. The judges were Ruth Ryan, from Barebones Art Space, and Robert Ryan, an established artist. Placings for the 3 sections were: Oil/ acrylic; 1st Faith Duffy; 2nd Del Jansen; Watercolour; 1st Roger Pettyfor; 2nd Marilyn Mandigo; Pastel; 1st Del Jansen; 2nd Jacki Moon. The viewers choice was “Red Poppies” by Jacki Moon. The Ocean Shores Country Club Art Group would like to express their thanks appreciation to all sponsors, participants and the band of helpers, who put the exhibition together.

Volunteering can really make a difference. This is why Volunteering Northern Rivers, aided by local Councils and the Office of Regional Engagement at Southern Cross University, is officially launching Corporate Volunteering on the 12th of May 2008, first day of Volunteering Week. Many businesses already contribute to the community but there is a need to go beyond the adhoc participation to a more structured way that benefits everyone, including participating employees and employers, not-for-profit organisations and government departments. There are many ways businesses can facilitate their employees participation in volunteering and the object of the launch is to have business managers/owners and not-for-profit organisations attend and be briefed on the possibilities the concept offers them. Practical exam-

ples will be featured and corporate speakers already involved in the concept will relate their experiences and answer questions. Proceedings will be opened by Paul Clark, Southern Cross Vice Chancellor and confirmed speakers include Thomas George, NSW MP for Lismore and Merv King, Mayor of Lismore. Other prominent speakers have been invited. The area covered by Volunteering Northern Rivers is from Ocean Shores to Woodburn and west to Woodenbong. Business owners/managers and representatives of not-for-profit organisations should register their intention to attend by the 2nd of May 2008 at the latest. Seats are limited and allocated on a first-come-first-served basis. For more information contact Volunteer Andre Othenin-Girard on 0414 591 367.

Darbyshire, who specialises in 19th century British and French art. The lecture will explore Monet’s artistic growth from reviled Impressionist to revered French artist. The name Claude Monet is well known throughout the art world but how well do people really know his work? Few know about his first views of Paris that include some 12 views of Gare St Lazare, 7 of which were exhibited at the 3rd Impressionist Exhibition in 1877. He also painted over 90 canvases of London in the 1900’s, a nostalgic view of the city bathed in light or consumed by fog, including The Thames at Westminster. The lecture will be held on Monday April 14 at the Catholic Church Hall, Deacon St, Bangalow at 7.30 pm. Guests are welcome to attend at a cost of $20, which includes supper.
