Lou Beaumont How to build a billycart is up there with mum’s favourite recipes as vital information passed down through the generations. The Bangalow Billycart Derby is before us once again and will be gracing the main street of Bangalow on Sunday May 18, and this year dedicated billycarter Howard Furner has been again assisting local kids in getting involved. Furner will have three carts running this year and several kids of different ages driving them. He has been building carts since he was a five year old kid growing up in a country town, and now loves passing on the skills. ‘I started building carts again with my stepson eleven years ago. I have a four and a half year old son now and I am modifying the cart I

built over a decade ago so that my son can hopefully race with me this year. For this reason alone it is the most significant year for me with regards to this event. ‘The Bangalow Derby is such an incredible event. It brings so many people together. There is such a diversity of carts too. ‘When I was a kid carts ran on pram wheels which were so rough and antiquated compared to the wheels we use today. I love experimenting with different materials and I get so much out of watching the enthusiasm build in the kids. It’s like Christmas for them in my workshop. It has wheels hanging off the walls and materials everywhere, I’m a real hoarder of things. ‘We are known as “Team Goonengerry” and we will have that

painted on all the carts. We have a few mothers in our team too who are taking part in this year’s Mother’s Race. ‘We will all be working for a common cause on the day, being part of a team like this is inspiring, winning is just a bonus. We all help each other out on the day and the bigger kids help the little kids get the carts back up the hill. I can’t

wait for my son to experience it this year, he is so into it.’ The annual Bangalow Billycart Derby will be held on Sunday May 18. If you are interested in sponsoring, volunteering or participating please contact Tony Heeson on 6687 2580, 6688 4236 or 0419 715 098. Visit for the full schedule of events.

Woolies meeting this Wednesday Byron Shire Council will hold a public meeting to discuss the proposed Woolworths supermarket for Station Street, Mullumbimby, at the Council chambers this Wednesday at 6pm. Woolworths representatives ar expected to attend. Woolworths has lodged modifications to its DA, on public exhini-

tion until May 30 – submissions should go to the Department of Planning au. Among other issues, Council will look at the effects of the graded car park on flooding, and the traffic impact on neighbours for the altered loading dock arrangements.

Council aims for 9.4% rate increase If the NSW local government minister approves, Byron Shire ratepayers can expect a 9.4% hike in rates for the coming financial year. The increase is currently on exhibition until May 29 as part of Council’s Draft 2008-2011 Management Plan and Budget. Council adopted the document for public exhibition at its meeting on April 23. Council voted to support a 6.22% special rate increase in addition to the approved rate increase of 3.2% to ‘provide much needed additional funds to upgrade and maintain infrastructure’, according to a press release. The proposed additional rate funding includes increased funding to go toward the Byron Bay Library, Mullumbimby and Byron Bay Pool upgrades, Suffolk Park Child Care Centre, Public Toilets, Tourism Management Plan, Byron Bay Town Centre upgrade, Donaghy’s Bridge replacement (Goonengerry), and a range of environmental protection works associated with implementing existing strategies and plans. Many of these items were identified as priorities by residents as part of the recent community survey. A comparison of Byron Shire’s rates with other councils is available online at au under ‘Media Releases’. A rates calculator will also be available on Council’s website under ‘Current Matters’. Ratepayers will need to enter their rating category (eg residential) and valuation of their land as shown on their 2007/08 annual rate notice. Information about the rate increase and its impact on ratepayers will be available at three public meetings to be held at the Council Chambers in Mullumbimby on Monday May 12 at 6pm, at Council’s Depot Training Room, Bayshore Drive, Byron Bay on Monday May 19 at 6pm, and at the Ocean Shores Community Centre on Wednesday May 21 at 6pm.

The development application for the controversial ReGenesis plans for the north side of Main Arm hamlet is currently on exhibition until 28 May. According to the Main Arm Residents Association (MARA), the DA lodged by ReGenesis is dramatically different to what was proposed at the rezoning stage, ‘with most of the green promises used to establish their eco-friendly credentials noticeably absent’. Together with another DA for the south side, Main Arm could end up with 50 new houses that MARA says, along with the commercial centre and shopping plaza, would dwarf the tiny hamlet and more than quadruple the area population. MARA president Judy MacDonald said, ‘The ReGenesis DA reveals just how inappropriate the two properties really are for the proposed suburban style subdivision. Very little land on these properties is flat or free of constraints. Nineteen of the 26 proposed house sites are located on steep slopes or are on or near the ridgeline. ‘The promised integrated wastewater system which so

impressed Councillors and planners in the rezoning stage has been replaced with the cheaper and less environmentally friendly option of individual onsite wastewater systems. None can meet Council’s guidelines meant to prevent possible contamination of the waterways and groundwater. ‘The original idea was that this new development would allow for existing village dwellings to hook up to the new integrated system.If Council approves this DA it will set a dangerous precedent to allow similar development anywhere else in the Shire. ‘The developer’s engineer, hired at the rezoning stage, recommended major road upgrades including replacing the dangerous one lane Main Arm causeway. The new engineer, hired for the DA stage, concluded the roads and causeway are fine as is, presenting instead the unworkable solution of a locked gate on the causeway, with the keys kept by the SES. ‘The DA is proposing only four metre wide gravel roads to the rural lots, compared to sealed roads promised at the rezoning stage. ‘ReGenesis fur ther impressed Council in their rezoning application with lofty promises to duplicate their Myocum organic farm and composting centre on their Main Arm property.Yet none of these promised green sounding proposals have made it into the DA.

‘ReGenesis in fact closed down their Myocum farm very shortly after securing the Council vote approving the rezoning for Main Arm. Everything they are doing now at the DA stage is to minimise their development costs and cut back on the costly green add-ons.’ Ms MacDonald also said, ‘MARA and our community cannot understand how Council could justify approving this problematic DA, since it differs so much from what was proposed at the rezoning stage, and since its proposals fail so many guidelines, intended to safeguard residents.’ MARA urges residents and members of the wider Shire community to send a submission to Council by May 28 objecting to ReGenesis DA No. 10.2008.192.1. Copies of the DA are at Council, the Main Arm shop, and on the Council website. MARA will have a meeting at the Main Arm store on Saturday May 17 at 3pm to review the DA.

Council launches solar hot water heating campaign Byron Shire Council has launched a Solar Hot Water Heating Campaign to help reduce the generation of greenhouse gas emissions within the local community. The campaign aims to assist residents to convert from conventional electric systems to greenhouse-friendly, hot water technologies. Currently, both the state and federal governments are offering rebates, but on top of these the campaign features a special ‘Byron Shire resident discount’ offered by a range of solar hot water heating companies. The special discounts average between $200 and $800 and have been negotiated by Council to make it more affordable for local residents to switch from electric to solar hot water heating systems. Byron Shire Mayor Jan Barham said the solar hot water campaign is an initiative of Council and supports actions contained in the Byron Shire Greenhouse Action Strategy. ‘I urge residents to consider “going solar” and look at some of the great discounts Council has arranged. Visit solar or attend the free community information presentation on May 28. ‘Switching to solar hot water heating can cut an average family’s hot water bills by 90% and generate savings of around $300 a

year on energy bills, making reducing our environmental impact more affordable than ever.’ Council’s Sustainability Officer Graeme Williams said the solar hot water heating campaign is only expected to run for a few months and residents who take up the offers available under the campaign could reduce their greenhouse gas emissions by as much as 4 tonnes of CO2 per year – the equivalent of taking a car off the road – and could have paid off their investment in solar in as few as four years. The community information presentation is on Wednesday May 28, 5.30pm–6.30pm, at the Council Chambers in Mullumbimby. To register please call Graeme Williams on 6626 7305.

Musos protest for right to play halls Story & photo Eve Jeffery Local muso Deidi Vine and a group of 80 protesters made a stand last Wednesday at Coorabell Hall in the hope of overturning the current ban on the use of the hall for bands and there will be ongoing action to this end. Byron Shire Mayor Jan Barham has by necessity stepped into the fray.Though many of the halls are not managed by Council, it is still responsible for compliance issues. When a complaint is made to Council, it is obliged to follow it up. ‘Even though we are not responsible for the management of many of these venues, we try to ďŹ ll the role as mediator between the users, the controllers and the complainants,’ Cr Barham told The Echo. ‘We look for options for settlement if we can. We must actively make sure that hall users meet the requirements, that noise not be offensive, too loud or continuing too late.’ Cr Barham said the issue of a cultural policy will be on the agenda at the June 13 council meeting at which time they hope to organise a public meeting with a view to making a start on policy provisions. The Coorabell Hall Com-

mittee is getting legal advice on different issues and will not be making any statements at this time but the wheels are turning. In related news Paul Barrett of the Samba Blisstas percussion group said his group was given four weeks to move out of the Moller Pavilion in Bangalow. ‘The person who made the complaint doesn’t realise who they are affecting. I put ďŹ ve years into building up this group and people come from as far away as Lismore to play each week.

I have members in their early twenties right up to 60 year olds. We keep our practice to reasonable hours and one complaint has torn down all our hard work. This is a cultural problem. ‘I am disappointed with the communication in this area. I am very approachable and if someone had asked me in a reasonable manner then we could have opened a discussion.’ As a requirement of their licence, hotels and clubs have to restrain noise levels and be trained in the respon-

Boys have their spray in positive way Story & photo Lou Beaumont Year 10 Mullumbimby High boys who are all part of the Byron Youth Service Young Men’s Group were recently covering a stairwell at their school in graffiti. They didn’t get punished for it though – in fact, it was a combined Mullumbimby High School, BYS Youthlinx and BYS Enterprise project where the boys were encouraged to graffiti, responsibly. Older boys supervised the younger ones in the project that aimed to teach them about graffiti as an artistic expression, where they are able to express issues relevant to young people. The boys were taught why not to tag or graffiti irresponsibly, as well as how to clean up and dispose of their rubbish afterwards. The same boys painted

Living Economies mentor comes to Mullum Creating dynamic local economies that can support vibrant communities and a healthy environment has been Judy Wicks’s passion for 25 years. In 1983 she launched Philadelphia’s legendary White Dog Café. From this small beginning she inspired the creation of the Sustainable Business Network of Greater Philadelphia and then co-founded a national ethical business movement in the United States under the banner of the Business Alliance for Local Living Economies (BALLE). BALLE’s mission is to promote locally owned and environmentally sustainable business as the best way to counter the socially and environmentally destructive impact of corporate globalisation. BALLE helps its members to find answers to questions like: How can my business use less energy and produce less waste? How can I help my customers understand that locally

owned businesses are important to the strength of our community? What new business opportunities exist for our region in the emerging post-carbon economy? In 2004 INC magazine named Judy one of America’s 25 most fascinating entrepreneurs ‘because she’s put in place more progressive business practices per square foot than any other entrepreneur.’ Judy is featured in David Suzuki’s book Good News for a Change: How Everyday People Are Helping

the Planet, and has been appearing on lecture platforms and radio and television around the world. With a four-part mission of serving customers, community, employees, and the environment, the White Dog Café and the associated nonprofit foundation,White Dog Community Enterprises, have created numerous educational and community building programs. Best known for buying organic produce and pastured meat and poultry from local family farmers (and investing in the expansion of their operations), the café acts as a centre for dialogue on progressive issues, storytelling, films and international tours. One hundred per cent of its electricity is generated by wind power and 20% of profits are contributed to White Dog Community Enterprises for programs to help grow a local living economy in the Philadelphia region.

FEHVA panel looks at ‘year of apology’ This year’s FEHVA program of panel discussions will reflect on The Year of the Apology and what it means to indigenous artists. On Saturday May 31 Frances Bell Parker, Indigenous Arts Development Officer for Arts Northern Rivers, will lead a panel discussion with artists Karla Dickens, Alison Williams and renowned indigenous arts curator Djon Mundine, pictured, to discuss what the Year of the Apology means to them as artists and as members of their indigenous communi-

ties. As a curator and as a member of the Bundjalung people, Djon shares his views on what the year of the apology means to indigenous art in general. Mr Mundine has

had an impressive career as a curator, activist, writer, and occasional artist and is renowned as the concept curator for the Aboriginal Memorial installation permanently exhibited at the National Gallery of Australia. Awarded an OAM in 1993 Mr Mundine is currently Indigenous Curator-Contemporary Art at the Campbelltown Art Centre. As part of the FEHVA program on Sunday June 1, 7.30 Repor t’s Tracee Hutchison will talk to indig-

enous artist Sally Harrison about how Sally’s experiences as one of the stolen generation have informed her art practice and even more importantly how becoming an artist and developing her imagery helped her reconcile the past and find peace today.

Byron Bay Herb Nursery website launched Jann Gilbert Byron Bay Herb Nursery propagation staff were thrilled to launch their new website (www.byronherbs. at the ABC’s recent Gardening Expo in Brisbane. The nursery booked a stand at the Expo to launch the site and show off their impressive range of produce alongside other growers and suppliers from around the country. Nursery manager Nick Thom says it was a great opportunity for nursery staff to be involved in a hands-on marketing campaign in the horticulture industry. With hundreds of companies onsite, the Expo is considered a showcase for all garden and outdoor needs. Staff were able to get an idea of the market in which they operate and where their product fits into the overall market. ‘They got a lot of positive feedback from the industry,’ says Nick. ‘It’s obvious that we have a really high-quality product, and it was great to see the staff receive personal recognition from gardening experts and the general public.’ The launch of the website enables the nursery to expand into herb related products such as lavender bags and propagation kits, which will also expand the skills of the nursery hands. Nick believes the website

will serve as a valuable community resource with information about herbs, planting, propagation, recipes, herb of the month, herbal products and employment at the nursery. The website was developed and launched with funding from a Business Service Assistance Package through the Department of Family & Community Services. The funding will also enable the nursery to undertake a major upgrade to its site. ‘That includes the propagation areas and a new shade house, which are under way at the moment,’ says Nick. ‘We’ve got a retail shop opening as well, which will stock herbs and the new

herb-related products. We’re predominantly a wholesaler but we’re also open to the public. People just love to come out to the nursery because it’s such a peaceful environment.’ The remainder of the funding will go towards a training and conference centre, which will also be utilised by the general community as a much-needed meeting space. ‘It’s a really exciting time for the nursery,’ says Nick. ‘I’m fortunate, coming in as a new manager. Lesley [the previous manager for 20 years] left the legacy of all her hard work. ‘There’s money in the bank and we’ve got such a great team. We’ve got a very

proactive committee as well who have lots of contacts in the community. ‘The support for this upgrade has been phenomenal. There’s already been over $10,000 worth of goods and services donated from the community and that makes you feel really good to be involved.’ A spring opening is planned for the upgraded site with a family open day and other activities. Stay tuned for further developments or, for a sneak preview, drop into the nursery during opening hours. Byron Herb Nursery is located off Bayshore Drive. Remember to check out the new website for loads of information on herbs and herb products.

Shand statue beyond repair after vandalism For some time a statue of Nicholas Shand, the late founding editor of The Byron Shire Echo, occupied a place of honour in Stan Robinson Park on a bench outside the Council Chambers in Mullumbimby. Council resolved in 2003 to support the dedication of the memorial in honour of Nicholas. The statue has unfortunately been subjected to regular attacks by vandals and has been repaired by the sculptor on several occa-

sions. It has now reached the point where the statue cannot be repaired. Mayor Jan Barham said, ‘It was fortunate that the sculptor was prepared to undertake the repair work after previous vandalism. Unfortunately, the vandalism continued to the stage where the statue is now considered to be damaged beyond repair. ‘The only solution available is to remove the statue to prevent further damage and

ongoing costs for repairs. ‘Once again, the thoughtless acts of a few individuals have deprived the community of a valuable resource. Council encourages all members of the community to continue to report any acts of vandalism against community property to the police and Council so that appropriate action can be taken. The Echo has offered the park bench as a donation to the community. Echo publisher David Lovejoy said,

‘This is sad, but I don’t think the vandals had anything against Nicholas Shand, who was loved and respected by everyone. It’s a case of bored people with nothing to do with their lives being destructive. We knew when we commissioned the sculptor Dorothy Macfarlane that vandalism was a risk, but casting her work in bronze was far beyond our means. Clearly civic art in Byron Shire has to be ponderous and invulnerable.’

basic need, touch has the ability to affect a person in truly deep and transformative ways. ‘Also, in and around Byron there are a lot of people who are dedicated to a yoga practice but their partners or friends may not fully understand that side of them. A weekend like this offers a unique opportunity to share the experience and gain a

deeper understanding of one another.’ Gisler adds, ‘Often in relationships it is easy to become unbalanced. This kind of partner work can really change the angle of perception, bring you back to centre to find a greater harmony together.’ A retreat booking for two is $720, with vegetarian meals and accommodation

Volunteers sought for transport and youth National Volunteer Week runs from May 12 to 18 and a couple of local services are seeking more support from volunteers. Tweed Byron & Ballina Community Transport (TBBCT) provides a range of transport for people who are frail, aged, disabled or unable to use public transport and have no alternative form of transport. Its main office is in Byron Bay, and it provides services in Byron, Ballina and Tweed shires. ‘Thanks to our volunteers we provide over 20,000 trips to medical appointments each year, shopping access bus trips and social bus trips,’ says TBBCT. ‘Over 100 volunteers range in age from 20 to 80 years, and help with a vari-

ety of transport roles: Volunteer drivers use their own vehicles or a project car to transport people to appointments. ‘Volunteer bus coordinators coordinate shopping and social trips. Volunteer bus attendants assist with social and shopping trips. Volunteer bus drivers assist with group transports. ‘If you are unable to drive or access public transport, it’s very difficult to get from some of our more isolated villages into a regional centre to see a specialist, or even into Byron to see the local GP. ‘Due to the increase in the number of clients moving to our area, we are seeking new volunteer drivers in all our shires.

Council seeks feedback on speed limit Do you want a maximum of 80kph speed limit to be introduced for all local roads in Byron Shire? Byron Shire Council is currently surveying the community asking, ‘Do you approve of a maximum 80km/h speed limit being introduced for roads in the Shire with the exception of the PaciďŹ c Highway?’ In conducting this community survey, Council is seeking to gauge the support within the community for a general reduction of the current speed limits outside of the urban areas, to a maximum speed limit of 80km/h. The survey excludes the PaciďŹ c Highway and urban areas where lesser speed zones already apply. Cr Richard Staples, who originally proposed the poll through a notice of motion, said, ‘There appears to be good support for the reduc-

tion in road speed limits in the community. ‘A strong yes vote would lend weight to any future representations or submissions to the Roads and Traf-

fic Authority regarding changes to speed limits.’ Those who want to be a part of the survey can ďŹ nd it online at www.byron.nsw.

When the levy breaks… May 13, 2008

Cannabis and the law The cannabis cult which has its ‘head’ quarters in Nimbin put on another colourful show at its annual Mardi Grass ( the other weekend, the emphasis on fun and information as usual. It was a window into an eccentric culture – the world needs all the eccentrics it can get as we head down the plughole of conformity – and a reminder of some of the values of the Aquarian movement (www., though not all ‘new settlers’ of the 1970s saw dope as an essential part of their lifestyle. The police presence was over the top – the officers seemed to act on the assumption they were going to the Booze Plus Ice Festival rather than an event which has little motivation towards violence. There is a new push in the local police command to make the festival unviable and a consequent renewed resistance from the organisers. While not likely to sway mainstream opinion overly, Mardi Grass is always a reminder of the issue of drug law reform. Why persecute a bunch of people for taking a drug rather than try to educate them off it if you regard it as harmful? Drug law has its basis in culture rather than logic – in terms of dangerous side-effects it would make more sense to ban alcohol and petrol rather than cannabis, but that wouldn’t work either. With a new federal government in power, perhaps now the emphasis of drug law can swing from the failed ‘Just Say No’ approach to one of harm minimisation. Part of the harm of cannabis use is in the fact it is illegal, which creates a climate of fear and paranoia and a distrust of the police, whose time could be better spent in other pursuits. Allowing individuals to grow a plant in the backyard – one well-cultivated plant can supply a lot of product – would circumvent the painful rigmarole of law enforcement and the social divisiveness it creates. As for education on drug dangers, there are plenty of resources available. The poorly-named National Cannabis Prevention and Information Centre (NCPIC has some even-handed fact sheets in its Resources section which point out that cannabis is not the perfect high. Teenagers have realised this for themselves – it’s no longer particularly cool to be a stoner at high school. The drug’s absorption via smoking holds dangers in regards to respiratory diseases and cancer. Of course compare and contrast with the latest study on alcohol (www.cancerinstitute. – see under publications), which reports for instance that four standard drinks a day increases a man’s risk of bowel cancer by 64%. Let’s not be overly romantic – all drugs have a level of harm, especially if used habitually, even chocolate. But surely the greater level of harm lies in marginalising certain groups of drug users (according to the NCPIC, a third of the Australian population has tried cannabis at some stage), many of whom will decide to give up the habit or use their drug in a manner which offers little threat to the general public.

version of Medicare was very different from the original. Medicare, like its predecessor Medibank, was designed by its founders as a universal health scheme. It was to cover the health needs of all Australians under a public system. The existing private funds would be allowed to continue to operate but they should be seen as an optional extra, offering additions to the basic service provided by Medicare. And they were to be self-supporting; government funds, through the special Medicare levy and top-ups from consolidate revenue, would go to the public system. Naturally enough a great many people, especially the young and fit, opted out of the private funds, which then screamed that it was all unfair, they couldn’t survive if their members actually claimed

been a key factor in costing him the unlosable electorate. But he could, and did, turn the system upside down. Medicare, not the private funds, was to assume the secondary role. It would remain, but only as a safety net for the deserving poor. Everyone else had an obligation to join a private fund, or else. The or else involved both carrots and sticks. The biggest carrot was the 30 percent rebate on premiums, correctly described at the time by Jenny Macklin as the worst piece of public health policy in history – the point being that it actually diverted resources from public health to private health. And the biggest stick was the extra levy, which, as was intended, caught more people every year and ensured a steady trickle out of the public system and into the

This soft-soaping is presumably designed to take the moral high ground over the private funds, which immediately threatened savage increases… by Mungo MacCallum the benefits to which they were entitled. Premiums would have to rise, which would reduce membership still further. If they were to fulfil their role of providing the rich with luxury and choice, they needed help. And the coalition, which had always opposed Medibank and Medicare as socialising the medical profession and thus as an attack on private enterprise, the economic model created by God to bring profit to their supporters, was only too willing to oblige. Howard could not attack Medicare too vigorously; his predecessor John Hewson had done that in 1993 and it had

private. At the same time Howard and Abbott reduced the share of commonwealth funding to the state-run public hospitals, thus making them less efficient and the private alternative more attractive. The private funds had never had it so good. But now Rudd is pouring money back into the hospitals and the levy has been lifted to free most of those whom it forced into the private funds. The rebate still stands as one of Rudd’s unbreakable election promises for his first term, but the trend is clear: Medicare is to be restored to its former preeminence and the private funds can go whistle.

ast week marked a sad anniversary; just 20 years ago a change took place that marked the start of a serious decline in political governance and political journalism in Australia. The Queen opened the new parliament house in Canberra. It wasn’t her fault, but the building has proved, as its critics feared, to be a severe impediment to the democratic process. Politicians, already isolated in Canberra, became still more isolated in their selfcontained apartments. Everything was locked in its place: ministers were separated from backbenchers, the senate from the house of representatives, the government from the opposition and the media from absolutely everyone. The healthy intermingling which was so stimulating in the old building came to an abrupt halt. So final was the break that the non-members bar, which had been the nerve centre and clearing house for members, staffers and journalists for 60 years, closed for lack of custom. The edifice on the hill is a fine architectural monument and a museum of Australian art and craft. But a wellinformed political democracy does not flourish best in monuments and museums. We can’t go back, but at least some attempt should be made to break down the walls and force the inhabitants to communicate with each other in person rather than by email. After serving 20 years, it’s time politics and journalism received parole.

Roxon has already signalled that she will not be too sympathetic with the funds if they start crying poor and demanding a new premium rise. Yes, a change of government does change the country, especially if you are running a private health fund.

Vol 22 #48

rime Minister Kevin Rudd thought the changes to the Medicare levy were important enough to warrant a separate, pre-budget announcement. But his health minister, Nicola Roxon, has spent the time since playing them down. When the levy was imposed by the Howard government, she says, it was supposed only to apply to the rich. But because the thresholds have not changed since then, inflation has meant that it now amounts to a tax which many working families have to pay if they do not join a private health fund. All the Rudd government is doing is restoring it to its original function; it’s essentially just a piece of budgetary housekeeping, an administrative correction. This soft-soaping is presumably designed to take the moral high ground over the private funds, which immediately threatened savage increases in their already extortionate premiums as a result of the proposed changes. While their reaction was predictable, it sounded rather more bellicose than the circumstances warranted. The funds have long feared that a change of government would mean an erosion of the extraordinary privileges they were granted by Howard and his health minister Tony Abbott, and perhaps they suspect that Roxon’s administrative correction is the thin edge of the wedge. And perhaps, just perhaps, they are right. Howard and Abbott always claimed to be all in favour of Medicare; indeed, Abbot said they were better friends than Labor had ever been. Certainly they were keen enough to preserve the name, especially around election time; polling showed that the scheme remained overwhelmingly popular with the voters. But the Howard-Abbott

Heritage joke With one large box building Woolworths will make a joke of the proposed ‘Byron Shire Community-Based Heritage Study’ for Mullumbimby. On the east side of the proposed building the concrete wall will be 84.6m long and 8.2m high, typical dimensions for a building in the proposed conservation area in Mullumbimby. The second point that doesn’t make sense is that the proposed building will be moved 50m to the north, further away from the town centre.This only makes sense if Woolworths is thinking of expanding to the north at some time in the future. I’m pleased they have allowed for a taxi rank in the proposed plans just to get to the shop from the town centre! Luis Cristia

Back at the bypass The Byron bypass as currently proposed is not going to make the slightest difference to the gridlock on Ewingsdale Road and Shirley Street at peak periods. The problem with traffic flow lies in the almost right angle turn of the road and its narrowing when it turns from Shirley Street into town. No widening of Shirley Street, which would involve the destruction of the Norfolk pines either by removal or a slow death due to the disturbance of the root systems, or any other measure Now is the time to

Getting the runaround


Late last year I emailed the NSW Minister for Transport Mr Watkins asking what progress if any had been made regarding the reinstating of our Casino-Murwillumbah railway service. After a month or so with no answer I emailed our Federal MP Justine Elliot thinking she would have some info on the subject as she had made the reopening of the service an election promise. I received an answer from her office advising that she could not help because it was a state government matter and that I should contact my local state member, Don Page. I contacted Don Page and received a reply that my

request had been forwarded to the Minister for Transport Mr Watkins. Mr Watkins’s offsider replied acknowledging receipt of my letter and advised that ‘Your concerns have been referred to the Director General of the Minister of Transport for a response’. I then emailed Anthony Albanese, Federal Minister for Infrastructure, Transport, Regional Development and Local Government, asking for any information on the re-opening of the service. The answer was that it was a state matter, I answered ‘If transport, regional development and local government matters (which seemed to me that our community and

area would come within that category) are not included in his portfolio, what does he do’? No answer yet. A few days ago I received another reply from Don Page that ‘Herewith is a copy of a letter received from the office of the Minister for Transport acknowledging my representation on your behalf.’ The copy says ‘The Hon. John Watkins MP has acknowledged receipt of your correspondence on behalf of Ms Peggy Balfour’. I have a suspicion that someone with a Sir Humphrey Appleby persona has been contracted to handle all government correspondence.

is going to alter this intractable problem. It is said that there needs to be a bypass for those wishing to travel between Suffolk Park and the Industrial Estate.The current proposal will not provide even this if there is still gridlock on Shirley Street as there inevitably will be – especially for anyone wanting to travel north to south. Recently Ed Ahern was quoted as saying that 70%–80% of traffic simply wish to pass through Byron on their way somewhere else. This is in total contradiction of any survey I’ve heard about, all of which indicate the situation is rather the reverse, with that proportion of cars actually wanting to come to Byron. As for opening the other railway crossing and running traffic up beside the Plaza that would only move congestion to an area where it is less easily controlled apart from closing off an important pedestrian access. A bypass by all means but the current proposal is an on-the-cheap Mickey Mouse one. Only a bypass from besides the garage in Shirley Street to Cemetery Road has any hope of succeeding, but admittedly, hugely expensive in terms of cost and environmental damage.

get to work at our then River Thai Restaurant at the old Brunswick River bridge. Back then we battled with two major traffic bottlenecks (Byron and Ewingsdale turnoff). The St Helena ‘freeway’ (dirt road) was therefore more often then not our only escape, literally for years. Luckily we survived that ordeal as we had a good number of near misses on that rather dangerous road. Not in our wildest dreams would we have anticipated that 11 years later we still debate an issue that needed resolution over 20 years ago. Needless to say that a proper Byron Traffic Management Plan with appropriate infrastructure (including a real bypass) is long overdue. It is time to realise that illfated political experiments have created a lot of mayhem causing massive damage and that if we are sincere about moving forward sensibly and pragmatically, we need to move in a different direction. Byron’s experience is not unique. It is rather common that movements and parties that originate on single issues may be quite impressive in opposition but fail miserably in a governing role. And by doing so, they not only stuff up everything, they also harm their own causes. It may be wise to put our best thinking caps on to soon elect a team that realistically can deliver, especially if you have a family, friends, an asset, a business, a job and/

or a real feel in and for Byron and beyond.

Ocean Shores ■ Bangalow was bypassed many years ago, yet traffic levels have continued to increase reaching critical levels at times. There are now moves afoot for a car park to be built (ironically) on railway land as well as a second by-pass. Traffic levels in Brunswick and Mullumbimby CBDs have increased in recent years following the opening of Pacific Highway upgrades and the Brunswick bypass. Murwillumbah was bypassed four years ago and the traffic in the CBD is at near gridlock most of the time. There are two separate proposals for multi-storey car parks to be built to cater for the extra vehicles. Yes, transport infrastructure is critical to our social, economic and environmental wellbeing, so why is the continued overleaf

Letters continued from page 9

Byron bypass reduced to merely a ‘traffic’ problem where congestion equals need for a new bypass? Consider the following. In 2006, shortly after the opening of the highway upgrade, the National Visitor Survey recorded an increase of 205,000 additional domestic day trips to Byron Bay. That’s a staggering 37% increase in a single year. Surely these visitors are not coming to take a scenic drive down a concrete bypass. These visitors want to see and experience Byron life and will continue to drive directly into the middle of town. Locals who believe that a bypass will allow them to avoid town congestion need to consider that they will still get caught up in this massive increase in traffic on the northern and southern approaches to town. How long before our clean and green image is lost in a haze of traffic fumes, tourist visitors stop coming and we put at risk the economic underpinnings of the whole shire? It’s time to open our minds and think critically about our future. It’s time to protect our communities and make our economies more resilient rather than increase our dependence on outside influences beyond our control. The only long term solutions are those that decrease the amount of traffic crawling through our towns and villages.We already have a won-

derful piece of infrastructure that is capable of providing an alternative. It’s called the rail line and in Byron it connects many of the points that people travel short distances to and from such as the high school, South Byron, Sunrise Beach, Plaza shops, Arts and Industry Estate. Trams would provide an opportunity for locals to get out of cars when moving around town. With the right marketing and placement of park and ride facilities, many tourist visitors would be attracted to tram services to enter and get about town as part of the ‘clean and green Byron experience’. In the longer term light rail services could connect towns and villages such as Bangalow and Mullumbimby, reducing the numbers of cars going in and out of Byron as well as making our hinterland roads safer. Such services are likely to stimulate the development of small scale tourist ventures in hinterland towns and villages to take people to popular hinterland destinations such as Minyon Falls and Crystal Castle. It’s time to develop section 94 plans that allocate money towards public transport and other sustainable facilities that protect our current and future livelihoods. Basil Cameron


Tibet sources Your correspondent Craig Hearps (Letters, May 6)

This is one from the vault. Jason is being detained for questioning by the police and is not available for modelling.

needs a reality check.He asked Jenny Coman not to ‘rehash others’ unresearched opinions on Tibet’. The Michael Parenti article (Friendly Feudalism: The Tibet Myth) Ms Coman recommended is, by any measure, a proper scholarly article. I am, of course, assuming Mr Hearps has read it, including the comprehensive list of references, and checked them out? There you will find several professors of Tibetan and Buddhist studies in religion,

anthropology, history and language. Other sources include Tendzin Choegyal, the Dalai Lama’s younger brother, a host of distinguished journalists, including the amazing Anna Louise Strong, and Heinrich Harrer, a boyhood tutor to the Dalai Lama. Most of these and Mr Parenti’s other sources have spent at least large parts of, some their entire, professional lives researching Tibet. All this and Mr Parenti’s own substantial reputation

as a progressive public intellectual. Reputable people from reputable institutions. In other words, Mr Hearps should check what he is calling ‘unresearched’ and realise that his 20 months in Tibet is as much qualification as believing spending 20 months with one’s nose pressed against a tree trunk qualifies one in forestry. Like the Nazis and Stalin’s murderous Red Army and the Taliban and the CIA, Tibetan theocrats and the vile Chinese leadership thor-

oughly deserve each other. The nastiness of any one doesn’t sanctify the other. While I have every sympathy with the economic plight of Tibet’s people and their resistance to the Chinese, I don’t harbour any illusions about something called ‘Tibetan culture’. Most of whatever that is the Tibetans could usefully do without. Which particular bunch of human behaviours (ie cultural artefacts) is Mr Hearps sticking apostrophes around and branding ‘Tibetan cul-

Coorabell Hall and the tensions of change ■ Just as not all Aboriginal kids sniff petrol, not all priests are paedophiles, not all footballers are rapists, not all Muslims are terrorists and not all Austrian dads imprison their families in the basement for decades – not all bands make an intolerable racket at unreasonable times of the night. As a member of a quiet band whose fans aren’t hooligans I feel discriminated against by the ‘no bands’ wording of the new Coorabell Hall hire policy. Wouldn’t it be more sensible and civilised to examine and solve the actual problem than to have a prejudicial kneejerk response to what is probably a small number of fairly well founded complaints? Alistair Bell

Byron Bay ■ I refer to Mandy Nolan’s Soapbox article in The Echo of April 29. I am interested in the cancellation of gigs at Coorabell Hall as it opens up several issues. I know a few of the farmers in the Coorabell area, my in-laws are dairy farmers there, and if they have the same treat-

ment as Coorabell Hall whereby a new neighbour complains about the noises or smells associated with farming then there is going to be great hardship for my wife’s family. I agree with Mandy Nolan about it being part of our cultural identity, but there is more than just the ‘vibrant creative culture’, there is also the concept of what was here before the Moondances, and that is the rural farming communities that Mandy Nolan in her wisdom has denigrated to pissed-up, family beating, opinionated telly watchers, with suicidal tendencies. It is so easy for people to forget the rural communities that previously existed and continue to exist to this day, with falling support. Mandy, please be reserved in highlighting the plight of farmers with the drought and issues of suicide. Two years ago we attended a funeral for a friend who had taken his own life. He came from a family of farmers who had been in the area since the late 1800s. It was with great anger that I read your characterisation and mocking of rural types.

Another issue for the Coorabell Hall was always the parking, my father-inlaw related a story to me about the dairy tanker for NORCO not being able to pass along Coorabell Road because of cars being so badly parked that he didn’t have room to drive through. We ourselves have had scares driving past the hall when there is an event on as patrons of the hall walk across the road to their haphazardly parked vehicles, and fail to look if there is any oncoming traffic. If the parking could be sorted out then I fully support the hall use. Noise complaints should only be considered if the noise continues past designated booking times (11pm or 12pm, I can’t stand all-nighters). Mandy Nolan should get to know some of the local farmers. In fact if willing I’m sure she could meet my inlaws to perhaps highlight another ongoing issue, Keyes Gardens. Julian Cole

Ocean Shores ■ Coorabell Hall is an interesting example of some of

the tensions in our multicultural shire and the pressure brought to bear by the changes in these times. I am privileged to have heard the points of view of some of the protagonists. On the one hand we have a predominantly elderly committee which is fearful of being personally liable at law for any future litigation. From my observations it also seems to be somewhat territorial with a very narrow view of who constitutes the community that shares this community hall and who may join the committee. They are responding to vandalism, disrespect, shit left everywhere, council by-laws, noise complaints and the pressures of the Zeitgeist in the only way they can. We have the police, who don’t make the laws but are sworn to uphold them, whose concerns are the inability of the hirers of the hall to control the behaviour of the patrons outside as well as the potential for violence and traffic accidents. We have the musicians and entrepreneurs who have lost another venue, a jewel in the crown, in an area where

there is need for more. Check the gig guide. We have people from all over the shire and beyond who have, over the past decades or so, seen and heard some of the best musicians in the world there and had the best dance experiences in their lives and who hold Coorabell Hall, along with several local country halls, deep in their hearts and feel an extraordinary loss – much like the loss felt when Joh had the Cloudlands Ballroom in Brisbane destroyed overnight. The committee seems unaware of them and their feelings. And let us not forget all those who danced there since 1909 and their fond memories. Then there are those who have built houses near extant halls and feel that, because they have spent a lot of money, they have the right to use whatever legal argument they can muster to constrain other people’s historic usage of a public amenity. Some blame the latter. Some blame the council. Imagine being a councillor in this shire trying to harmonise the many disparate forces. Solomon, where art

thou? The council, like the police force, have their hands tied. They are guided by political contingencies, bureaucrats and the bureaucratic mindset. As we follow the citizens of the USA down the path of increasing litigation, in an effort to allay our fears we write ever more and more laws which seems to have the perverse effect of increasing the rebelliousness and disaffection in our youth. Testosterone rules. We are left with pubs and bouncers which are inimical to the enjoyment of fine music and good dancing. Pubs are the last place I would wish to go for either. Antisocial behaviour is a reflection of the short-comings of a society and the political, economic and mythical models that guide and inspire it. Coorabell Hall is a symptom of our inability to come together on a local scale. What hope for our survival on a planetary scale? We continue to shit in our own nest. In the meantime, dance wherever and whenever you can. Jim Nutter

Letters ture’? Oh, only the ‘nice’ bits of course. How does he know they wouldn’t have stayed the same without the Chinese? Their fellow Buddhists in Myanmar have sustained feudal fascism into the twenty-first century very nicely. How many Tibetans did Mr Hearps ask if they wanted to go back and start at the pre-1950 situation? Understanding a complex historical moment takes more than sheer outrage. Chris Bracken


Whither Council? I have been secretary of CAN, Community Action Network, since 1998. We were very successful in helping councillors of our choice to get elected. We based our choice on those who enthusiastically proclaimed that they had the social, the cultural and natural environment of our shire at heart. However, after one year those councillors turned around and could not wait to roll out the red carpet for the developers and get rid of those people who wanted to retain our culture. The only one who did not was promptly subjected to an intensive smear campaign. Also, on the rare occasion that the council rejects a development (Woolworths Mullum) or has ‘concerns’

or wants to reduce it from 45 to 44 houses the state government overrules it. I often wonder now why we have councillors, or for that matter local government at all, and what their function is except as cheerleaders for the developers and city ‘investors’. When the community expresses a real objection to the closing of Coorabell Hall, the drumming at Mullumbimby once a month for a few hours, the Samba Blisstas in Bangalow or any other local cultural event, the council simply informs us that it is out of their hands. In other words shut up, go away, it is not our pigeon. It is so sad because they are good, compassionate people, with some of whom I have stood shoulder to shoulder protesting before they became councillors.You wonder if they are victims of ‘inappropriate influence’.

Trouble rides a tall black mare ■ So we are getting closer to the crux of the matter (Letters, May 6). W B Crompton rides horses and believes that because a goverment suveyor drew lines on a map around the time the Big Scrub was being cleared, then automatically in 2008 horses and mountain bikes should have open access to these lines, regardless of their ecological merit and hey, don’t bother with any land use assessment. Consider this. NHAG’s wish list becomes a reality. Rare and threatened habitats are opened up for everyone’s pet pleasure. Bird watchers and wildlife photographers arrive and wait patiently for hours for that elusive sighting when along comes a mob of horses to ruin their day... yee hah.

Or the family of bushwalkers, mum, dad and the kids, head down packs on backs, inching their way up a very steep hill and along comes a pack of professional mountain bike riders. ‘Race you to the bottom.’ Yee hah. Bang! Who’s liable for the injuries here? NHAG? No way. Council? Ratepayers? Sounds alarmist? No. This is what NHAG is proposing. I’ve bushwalked in every State and Territory of Australia and around the world and I have never experienced such a potential conflict in land use as what is being proposed in Byron Shire by NHAG. Thank goodness for The Echo for allowing such folly to be exposed and discussed. Let’s get real. Horse riders, mountain bike riders

and nature lovers all need separate space to enjoy their thing. But trying to accommodate them all on the one ‘path’ is a recipe for real conflict. Is anybody listening? Patrick Morrisey

Goonengerry ■ In response to the Campbells and Patrick Morrisey I would like to assure them that the community trail will not cause houses and sheds to be demolished and will not cause environmental degradation.

The wrath of the Myanmar gods

Megafests on their minds

David Miller Cyclonic winds with a 3.5 metre tidal wave have just ripped through Burma. As a natural human disaster it is on a par with the 2004 tsunami, possibly worse. Back then, the world got together and political differences were put aside to help suffering humanity. Today, by contrast, the ruling generals in the country they have renamed Myanmar are actively blocking outside help. We know that they are paranoid and xenophobic, so maybe they don’t know how to react. But are they just inefficient or is there something more sinister? Burma used to be a prosperous Asian country, a ricebowl, but since 1962, it has the dubious record as the world’s longest military dictatorship with a poor downtrodden people. In the ten years since I visited with my young son as tourists, vivid memories remian of people I met who were brutally suppressed on a daily basis. The threat of arrest and torture was never far away. There is no love lost between the government and the people. Even before this natural calamity most of the population has lived on the brink of disaster for many years. My mate Tommi was such a one. He received secret aid from Australian sources in a project to bring piped water to some villages. On a trek to a forbidden village with no access road, walking behind this cheerful soul up the slope, I could see the lurid scars on his legs from a routine questioning. His crime? Helping the people. But like many Burmese he was irrepressible and brave. The rulers are very superstitious. That’s the rub. A

■ I acknowledge the Editor’s note in response to my letter in relation to the carbon footprint of Blues and Splendour. But festival assurances they intend to offset carbon emissions must be taken with a grain of salt. For starters, climate change demands that society wind back our lifestyle by living more simply and giving up the kinds of things that create carbon emissions. Otherwise, we will have neverending pollution in our Shire which is somehow ‘offset’ by giving donations to wind farms etc in far away countries. In calculating carbon emissions the Greenhouse specialists in Canberra insist that emissions must include disposal of waste generated, waste transported offsite and disposed of; use of products manufactured and sold; employee travel; employees commuting to and from work; extraction, production and transport of fuels consumed; extraction, production and transport of other purchased materials and goods; out-sourced activities; transportation of products, materials. Given that both the Blues and Splendour feature artists who come from all over the world, travel emissions must be properly calculated. To sell ‘green tickets’ and refuse to provided any evidence of how carbon emissions generated by mega festivals are calculated is disingenuous. To boast of green credentials when the most basic equation of carbon emissions generated by mega festivals must, by their very nature, involve the creation of astronomical carbon emissions is not acceptable. It’s time to scale back activities which create major

soothsayer told the chief general one day to move the traffic to the right ‘to make the country right’. It was done on a whim with no planning. Once upon a time the Buddhist monks, and there are many, might have been able to intercede and help. But following the recent uprising a few months ago, even these holy men lost favour with the government, who had always supported the monasteries as a form of spiritual insurance. Now they too are enemies of the state. It is a very strange place. The week is eight days, Wednesday morning and afternoon being two days, to allow for the right number of animal totems. The script is totally indecipherable and even the numbers are squiggles, making even simple navigation a nightmare. English is rarely heard. According to credible sources concerning the cyclone, the junta is taking the line that ‘it serves them right for opposing us’ as their way of viewing the current disaster. ‘The more rebels that die the better, an obvious punishment from the gods for lack of cooperation with their rulers.’ If this is so, then refusal to allow foreign help access to the suffering millions is more than just inefficiency or paranoia. It is sheer murder on a scale comparable to the Nazi crimes. Remember, it is a government that was voted out and responded by shooting street demonstrators in large numbers way back then and incarcerating the elected leader Aung San Su Chi, who is still under house

arrest 45 years later. Drug lords live openly like kings and the extensive forests were turned into logs for profit. The people of Burma have no defences at all. What can the world do to help? Direct entry by the UN is allowable by charter in such circumstances, but there is no precedent for ignoring national sovereignty in this way. Myanmar is a client state of China, which supplies arms to their military. So who in the world would be game to offend the mighty Dragon? Forget letting in foreign relief teams. Even getting food, water, goods and money into the country is hard, because asking the government to help with distribution would be naïve in the extreme, as Dracula is fully in charge of the blood bank. The current scene in southern Burma must be indescribable. Even in normal times access was difficult due to degraded infrastructure. The last rulers to do serious work on the railway were the British in the 1940s. Try to imagine the scene, because we are unlikely to see much on TV. Dead bodies in hundreds of thousands, survivors in shock clinging to wrecked shanties in flooded estuaries, no drinking water, rice not to be had. The most likely outcome for millions is death by neglect. From the Generals’ perspective, the gods must be angry and are punishing a recalcitrant population in a decisive manner, proof of their righteousness, really. So why would they want to allow in western devils to interfere with divine wrath? Blasphemy!

■ Splendour organisers withdrew their DA days before Council’s deliberation. They must have heard that it didn’t stand a chance. Now, they have cooked up a bunch of more unpalatable ideas hoping to push their deeply unpopular proposal through. The amendments make the original even worse! The tunnel underpass has been replaced with massive earthworks to build up a road each side of Jones Road to go right across the wildlife corridor, with all the cut and fill, earthworks, rock walls, culverts, etc, creating a traffic crossroads right on the corridor! The north-south walls under the approaching roads will effectively block animal movement, not to mention the lengthy earthworks and surrounding damage to habitat. The relocated emergency helipad is close to koala habitat. About 40 light towers have been introduced with no supporting documentation or impact statements. Assembly evacuation areas are reduced from four to one. There are still 64 threatened species and 28 migratory species on site! All other objections in previous submissions still hold: traffic problems, isolation from infrastructure, fire risks, excessive noise, loss of amenity, environmental and ecological damage and adjoining Nature Reserve, social impacts, flooding, etc, etc. Calling all residents, community groups, political and environmental groups to get submissions on Amended

■ The Amendment to the Splendour ‘trial’ DA shows they now wish to construct a road up-and-over the Jones Road ridge, still cutting through the State Registered Wildlife Corridor. A huge undertaking, this is so they can have shuttle buses carrying thousands of party goers between the flood plain carpark and the event site. There will also be a walking path through the corridor. Music will stop at 3am. This does not reduce the problems for the endangered wildlife, nor the other problems of noise, flood and fire danger (the last fire in 2004 burnt the peat for months), party houses in the North, lack of amenities, etc, etc. Environment groups, most community associations, and the Green political party have all registered their opposition to this big-money venture. Submissions close tomorrow (14th) so email the acting GM at Council today on phil.warner@, quote DA 10.2007.462.1. Also, despite Splendour’s words to the contrary, the DA states 20 festival days per year; it’s in Appendix B, ‘Aboriginal Heritage Assessment’ 1.3 (2), of all places. Consider that the ‘trial’ alone calls for 28 days bump in and bump out, and we’d have one mighty busy wildlife corridor, if Splendour were to get their way. Council staff may well approve it, so contact the Councillors to help them gauge public opinion. Mega festivals are an election issue. David Hall

Representatives from the Byron Shire Local Emergency Management Committee and Byron Shire Council have over the past 12 months conducted an Emergency Risk Management Study for the Byron Shire Local Government Area. ‘Emergency Risk Management, once a national responsibility, has changed focus over the last decade to place a greater emphasis on local government,’ according to a Council press release. ‘This emphasis recognises the strong ties that Council has with its community and encourages proactive measures for response, containment and restoration of disasters or emergencies at a

local government level. ‘Emergency Risk Management involves identifying the level of risk posed to communities, property/assets, environment and infrastructure and assessing the strategies in place which endeavour to protect these elements from the adverse effects of natural, technological or biological hazards. ‘The Emergency Risk Management Study is not a response plan, but rather a process that identifies all existing plans and arrangements currently in place with both combat agencies and local government, and makes recommendations if required to enhance them.’ The representatives from the Local Emergency Man-

agement Committee and Byron Shire Council have produced a draft version for public exhibition and comment. Feedback and comments from the Byron Shire community is encouraged. The draft Emergency Risk Management Study will be placed on exhibition on the Council website www.byron. and community access points. Residents can contact Byron Shire Council to discuss any issues or information they feel are relevant to the finalisation of the Study. Comments should be forwarded to the Local Emergency Management Officer at Byron Shire Council, PO Box 219, Mullumbimby NSW 2482.

Forum to discuss an alternative future for community Story & photo Jann Gilbert It’s 7am on a Wednesday morning and Gwen Gould and her band of volunteers already have the grills sizzling and the billy boiling. The smell of a BBQ breakfast wafts from the rear of the community centre and hungry faces smile in anticipation. A couple of kids make a beeline for Tashi the wonderdog, and two young, adolescent girls sit talking together. But this is no happy family or tourist scene; this is the other side of Byron, the underbelly of an economic rationalist juggernaut. In our bright, market-driven future(?) we now appear to dispose of people as effortlessly as we do products that have outlived their usefulness. For many who come to the Homeless and Community Breakfast every Wednesday morning, it’s one of the only decent meals they will have all week. It’s a chance to sit and chat, and to catch up with a variety of community services that monitor the health and wellbeing of what has become an increasingly marginalised group of people in our community. As Director of Byron Youth Services (BYS) and member of a number of committees that deal with social issues, Paul Spooner is concerned at what is happening to the community and to those most vulnerable within it. And there’s a chorus of voices to support him in that concern. ‘I was interested in what sort of a community people wanted,’ says Paul. ‘Do we want one that welcomes some people and not others? There seem to be spaces for

The Homeless and Community Breakfast provides much needed relief for many marginalised people in our community.

tourism, for business and multimillion dollar houses but where are all the community spaces?’ It’s these and other questions that are important in shaping the future of our community that will be discussed at the upcoming Social Forum, which runs from Friday June 13 to Sunday June 15. The aim of the forum is to create a space in which to hear and discuss, democratically, the Shire’s ‘most pressing challenges and opportunities’, and ‘to share and act on ideas for sustainable economic, social and ecological justice in Byron Shire’. ABC 7.30 Report presenter Kerry O’Brien will compere the opening session on Friday 13 7pm–9.30pm at the Community Centre. A panel of six speakers (including Yvonne Stewart, Dailan

Pugh and John Gudgeon) representing environmental, Aboriginal, youth, business, social and cultural interests in the community will get five minutes to pitch their ideas with questions from Mr O’Brien, followed by questions and comments from the floor. The program for Saturday 14 (at the YAC) includes workshops and discussion groups on participants’ topics of choice, and all participants will have the opportunity to attend a variety of workshops throughout the day. Sunday 15 will kick off with a BBQ lunch where participants will consolidate their thinking and team up with others to formulate actions to address the identified issues. Paul hopes that the entire community will get involved in order to help determine

an alternative future for Byron Shire. However he also makes it clear that the forum is not about interest groups but about individuals in the community. ‘The forum is an opportunity for anybody in the community to come together as individuals,’ says Paul. ‘So it’s not about the Council or the government or business. We want to get away from groups, [from] this idea that

Vital role for our native bees The survival of native bees could be vital to the conservation of biodiversity. That is the message from local expert Frank Adcock who has spent years studying the differing habits of native bees and honeybees and their role in plant pollination. Frank bought his first native beehive seven years ago. Today, he has 60 dotted throughout his Nashua macadamia orchard, and has become a passionate advocate for the small black insects. ‘I was not happy with the pollination in my macadamia trees,’ he says. ‘The honeybees take the nectar from the flowers but seldom pollinate effectively.’ Frank’s passion will be put to good use at the Brunswick Valley Nature Festival on June 1 where he will

talk on the key role of native bees in agriculture, and what things would be like without them. The theme of the Festival is ‘conserving biodiversity’. He says native bees have an important role in pollinating rainforests along with birds, bats and many other insects. The honeybee on the other hand is not a native of Australia and its foraging behaviour has reduced seed production or pollination rates of some plants, though it has increased the production of others. ‘Native bees may also play a crucial role in pollinating our non-native food crops in the future because pests and diseases and new agricultural techniques increasingly threaten honeybees,’ Frank says. ‘For instance, growers with netting are finding that

it upsets the honeybees’ foraging behaviour, and reduces pollination and yield dramatically. We are working with native bees to see if they do a better job of “under-net” pollination. Frank estimates there are around 100 native beehives on the north coast, and this number is growing as he splits existing hives every two years and doubles his hive numbers. ‘It’s really important to build native bee numbers and our knowledge about them,’ he says. ‘In the future they may be our main pollinators if honey bee numbers tumble.’ The Third Brunswick Valley Nature Festival, a World Environment Day event, will be at the Shearwater Steiner School in Left Bank Road Mullumbimby on Sunday June 1.

we belong to a group. Rather, we’re inviting people to participate in their own right.’ While the organisers realise that people may come with their respective interest groups in mind, the general idea is that whoever is speaking is speaking as a community member and not as a representative of a particular group. The reason for this is simple. ‘Often what happens is that by putting labels on people we have an initial perception of where they’re coming from and that hinders real communication and dialogue,’ says Paul. ‘The idea of the forum is that if you are interested in social issues in this community then you can come together with others to discuss that openly.’ Paul is hoping that the forum can generate not just ideas and concepts but ‘planned action’ to address the issues that are raised, which could then be progressed by individuals or in concert with others. ‘It’s a process that doesn’t have a determined outcome as such but rather just provides that equality of discussion, which will have its tensions,’ says Paul. ‘The community is going through lots of changes and I think

people are seeing and feeling that.’ As is evidenced every week in the letters pages of The Echo, and at numerous public meetings, there is a growing list of social issues that create concern and tension within the community. Apart from festivals, development and holiday letting, there’s homelessness, affordable housing, community spaces and services, the environment and many others. ‘The emphasis is on inclusion,’ says Paul. ‘Using a style that’s not determined, it doesn’t have an agenda that’s fixed by a group of people, it is really being determined by who turns up and engages in the discussions.’ The forum presents the first real opportunity for the individuals who make up this community to hear and be heard. If you want to be a part of creating an alternative, equitable and socially just future for Byron Shire then the forum is a great place to start. The opening session at the Community Centre is by donation and all other sessions are free.

More trash than treasure coming our way John Campbell ‘But you’re supposed to be a hermit!’ You could have knocked Cat Carer over with a feather when I told her that even I’d been to Coorabell Hall. It was in the not so dim and distant. A sparkling evening of reefer madness, with the splendidly named LostYouth going right off – when was the last time you heard a band do Over Under Sideways Down? We were on our way to Goonengerr y. Por tnoy needed minding for a few days while I attended to business in The Smoke. This time Faerie Queene’s black poodle, Marc Bolan, was also making the trip into the hills. She flew out on Friday morning with Lady Cadaver for a long weekend of fasting and esoterica at some secret retreat in the Blue Mountains. A failed actress, Lady Cadaver’s inner craving for wholeness and healing was at a critical high after her part as an extra in East of Everything was reduced to a glimpse of her right foot in one of the yoga scenes (and, as far as I’m concerned, the angle was inconclusive at best). She’s an old stager at such indulgences, the shroud of self denial and martyrdom sitting comfortably on her scrawny shoulders. But Faerie Queene, who is beginning to look like the Vicar of Dibley only without the cute bob, was dragged kicking and screaming when belatedly told of the lodge’s ‘strictly no Dubonnet’ rule. ‘How come they’re going all the way to the Blue Mountains anyway? There are tons of places like that in the Shire.’ ‘It’s a there goes the neighbourhood thing,’ Cat Carer explained. We’d passed Ewingsdale and were climbing the highway, where the speed camera insists that you slow down to 60ks. The Commie gagged,

Winter Senna – a colourful bushland invader If you have been out and about in Byron Shire this past month you have probably noticed the showy yellow flowers of Winter Senna. This shrub is a common invader of our roadsides, parks, and nature reserves. Winter Senna, or Senna pendula var. glabrata has compound leaves 4 to 8 cm long with mostly 4 to 5 pairs of rounded, eggshaped leaflets. Its conspicuous bright yellow flowers appear around Easter soon followed by hundreds of round, straw coloured bean-like pods. Each pod contains 5-10 seeds that remain viable for nine years or more. A native of South America, Winter Senna was introduced into Australia as a garden ornamental. Planted for its cheerful autumn colour, it has since become a serious environmental weed. Spread from gardens by water, ants, birds, and mammals to road verges and bushland, Winter Senna out-competes native plants to form dense, impenetrable thickets.

happier being the chariot to my Ben Hur. The dawdle up the hill was made even more nerve racking by the presence of a marauding police car. Everybody dropped the anchors with the gut-wrenching paranoia of a herd of spindly legged Thomsons gazelles when the lions are prowling at their edge. ‘Please chase somebody else’ was the prevailing mood. Then the release of turning on to Coolamon Scenic Drive. Marc Bolan had happily taken up a standing position in the back, his panting head sticking out the window, revelling in the wind blasting his face. It was the first time I’d ever seen his eyes – they are disturbingly vacuous, as though there is not a skerrick of activity going on behind

them. Which might be the case. Why else would he be so happy all the time? We approached the hall. Another icon biting the dust. Cat Carer said that’s how come the old molls are going to the Blue Mountains. They can no longer concentrate at their meditation groups because of the rattling of infiltrators’ 24 carat baubles – the usurpers being the trophy wives of carpetbaggers who have come to the area with the intention of recreating it to better reflect their own gated

community imagination. Then I saw the huge red demolition machine. It was parked by the abandoned blonde brick Blair Witch house that is next to the hall. A landmark in its own right. After all the bends, the poodle was looking queasy as I stopped the car. Cat Carer and I got out, jumped the fence and snuck around inside the creepy place. It’ll be gone soon, too. Despondent, we trudged back to the Commie. Marc Bolan had vomited on the seat.

Byron Shire Council’s bush regeneration team has been busy controlling Winter Senna in high conservation value vegetation on council land including rainforest at McLeod’s Shoot, subtropical coastal floodplain forest on the Brunswick River, heath at Patterson Street Hilltop Reserve, and littoral rainforest remnants at Broken Head and Suffolk Park.

Byron Shire Council bush regenerator Shane Ivey cuts, scrapes, and paints Winter Senna on the banks of the Brunswick River.

You can help us stop the spread of this weed by removing it from your garden or property. Seedlings or small plants can easily be hand pulled; larger plants can be cut, scraped, and painted with glyphosate herbicide. Seed pods should be bagged and composted or disposed of in household waste. For details on control techniques, see our website Biodiversity/BushRegenerationTeam. You should be aware that there are two native plants that can easily be confused with Winter Senna, one of which is an endangered species. Coffee Bush (Breynia oblongifolia) has a similar habit and is often found with Winter Senna. However, its leaves are simple (not compound) and alternate in a zig-zag arrangement on the stem. It lacks conspicuous flowers and produces pink to orange berries rather than pods. Rainforest Cassia (Senna acclinis) is a similar closely related native plant. It is an endangered species and is known to occur in Booyong flora reserve, Emery’s Scrub (Nashua) and Broken Head Nature Reserve. Like Winter Senna, it has compound leaves with 5 to 7 pairs of rounded leaflets and showy yellow flowers. Unlike Winter Senna, however, it has a flattened pod and smaller leaflets. These pods mature in February and March. Coffee Bush makes a good native alternative to plant in your garden to attract birds and butterflies. Or for a denser, longer lived sh shrub, try a local Brush Cherry (Syzygium australe), Plu Plum Myrtle (Pilidiostigma glabrum), Rose Myrtle (Archirhodomyrtus beckleri), or Silky Myrtle (Decaspermum humile). These species may be readily available from specialist nurseries. Your biodiversity levy at work.

What men think is finally revealed Before You Met Me by Alan Close (William Heineman RRP $34.95) Mandy Nolan In his new memoir BeforeYou Met Me, Mullumbimby based author Alan Close answers the question that long has lingered on women’s trembling lips: ‘What are you thinking?’ The answer surprised me. As a female reader I am guilty of being a sexist reductionist, because I would have said ‘beer’. Turns out I’m very wrong. Not only do men have feelings, they have the capacity to articulate them. In this text Alan marries his history as a columnist on men’s issues for Good Weekend Magazine and his work as a novelist. The narrative falls somewhere between personal journalling and storytelling and I was left wondering if Alan should have changed his name to protect his anonymity, as the book is a far reaching relationship autopsy examining the

Local author Lollie Barr’s novel The Mag Hags has been shortlisted for the prestigious Nsw Premier’s Literary Awards in the Ethel Turner Prize for young people’s literature category, with the judges saying, ‘With wit, irrepressible humour and biting prose, this story is as up-todate as today’s headlines and Barr adroitly creates five vivid and unforgettable characters who embark on an inspirational adventure.’ Since being launched jointly in Mullumbimby and Sydney in October 2007, The Mag Hags has received glowing reviews nationwide. The Sydney Morning Herald called it, ‘An upbeat, intelligent bit of young adult fic-

have been repressed or are thinking why hasn’t this stuff happened to me? The book is an open struggle for identity and a reminder that we never really outgrow our childhood wounds. There is a definite surprise moment in Before I Met You, where the author makes a personal revelation that makes you rethink the context of the story. Although this is true to the author’s experience, I wonder whether this gives the reader an out where they can think, ‘I was identifying with his experience, but he obviously had a lot more going on than I thought.’ Alan Close’s book is remarkably brave, and a testament to the courage of writers who offer up their own life experience for the greater good. I get the feeling that this is like a man’s version of Women Who Run WithWolves, a book that finds you and tells you things you’ve always been scared to hear exactly when you need it.

Award nomination is sweet news for Lollie

author’s inability to stay in love. I couldn’t believe how honest he was in chronicling his relationships, his affairs, abortions and his enduring belief in romantic love. As a female reader it was fascinating to read such an intimate confession, confirming what as a young woman I had once suspected, that men were in fact bastards. It was something of a revelation to discover that a man’s longing for emotional fulfilment through love and family was just as strong as

a woman’s but so much harder to navigate. I asked a male friend to read the book for me, because I wondered how a man would respond. Was this a more general male voice that speaks through the author, or is it the result of some far reaching mental and emotional colon cleansing? And is there a sense of betrayal amongst the brotherhood, that Alan dares to break the silence by reaching out with his relentless disclosure? According to my friend, men have always been very secretive about personal things that are not politically correct, like having behaved badly, or having affairs they were not proud of and usually choose to share it with only their closest mates. It’s an uncomfortable read, because it’s a man letting it all hang out, but if a man can battle through the pathos then there is something there for them. If they haven’t shared Alan’s shoes then they were probably born to a different era or

tion that bubbles cheerfully along through its wellthought-out plot.’ Now Lollie is up against five other authors competing for the $15,000 prize. She is naturally over the moon about her success. ‘I’m really delighted to have made the short list, it’s a real honour,’ she says. ‘I’m glad the book has been so well received. ‘I wanted to write something incredibly contemporary so teenagers could see their own reflection and be inspired by it. But beyond that, I wanted it to be a good read with lots of laughs.’ Lollie has hit the pulse with The Mag Hags – a host of new fans say how much they loved her book on her barr page. ‘It’s been awesome getting that kind of feedback,’ she says. The book, already in its second print run, has been

well received not only by the young adult market but also by adults. ‘That’s been the really cool thing,’ says Barr. ‘There has been a real crossover of people reading it. I’ve had all sorts of people from teenage girls and boys, random blokes to women of all ages saying how much they enjoyed it!’ Barr has recently returned from the All Saints Literary Festival in Perth and is looking forward to appearing at the Byron Bay Writer’s Festival, where she will be on the ‘First Writes: the path to publication’ panel and the ‘Kids: Meet Lollie Barr’ session. ‘The writers festival circuit is a whole new world,’ says Lollie. ‘It’s more like having to be an entertainer than a writer.’ However, the multi-talented Ms Barr is no stranger to performing as those who attended the Bangalow Big

Joke festival’s Burlesque Show will attest. Lollie appeared as Fifi La Muff, a French temptress dressed in a red cat suit and played guitar and sang upside down. Lollie says she has signed up for the Festival Writer’s Cabaret performance but says there is no way she will be dressed in her red cat suit this time. ‘Hardly serious author, is it!’ Lollie is currently working on her new adult novel and is looking forward to putting on her best frock to attend the awards night on May 19 at the Art Gallery of New South Wales, where she’ll rub shoulders with the Premier and a whole host of literary glitterati.

Melbourne based singer songwriter Jo Kelly Stephenson is no stranger to the Northern Rivers.

of having a band and then taking the songs back to their original form when you play it more stripped down.’

‘I did my music degree at Southern Cross, with my major in vocal studies with Leigh Carriage.’ It’s her local connection that has her coming back for a small coastal tour.

When asked to describe her style, Jo Kelly’s answer is more of a trip through the genres.

‘I’m actually playing at a friend’s wedding up there. It prompted the trip and I thought it would be a good opportunity to promote the album as I am getting a lot of airplay on radio in the area.’ Jo Kelly’s album I see Flowers, You see Cars has made it to the play list for local community stations as well as ABC North Coast. During daylight hours Jo Kelly is a school teacher, by evening she makes music. It’s a full dance card, but something she acknowledges needs to be done to make her way into the industry. ‘There’s always the financial pressures as you are aware, lately it’s been making a bit more progress – because I finally have my album now and I have a product.’ Jo Kelly Stephenson hails from a musical family, where most of her early years were spent wedged between a Fender Rhodes and a Simpson washing machine riding around in a red and white Kombi van. Her fondest memories she admits were dancing at her father’s late night gigs. So when she came to record, she needed look no further than her own gene pool. ‘Dad has a recording studio and he co-produced the album with me. It took a while to get the songs to the point where I knew to go – it actually started off realiy easily, flowing, but then we reached the point where you come to a crossroad when a song can go in any direction – and that’s when you have to make a decision.’ So how do you know when you are finished? ‘You’re never finished,’ Jo Kelly Laughs. This tour is a different format for Jo Kelly who is enjoying the change from playing with her full band in Melbourne to joining keyboardist, James Ferguson as a duo. ‘It’s great,’ she says, ‘I like the variety




‘It goes through stages, obviously when you are at University you explore the jazz, I have always been heavily into the blues, and the American folk rock that came out in the 70’s – but I also loved the Beatles growing up, I loved lots of different styles, my album has lots of different styles, bluesy rootsy folky country, with hints of jazz and RnB. I think with songwriters it’s more about the songs, so it shouldn’t restrict the style.’ Jo Kelly is currently working on her next album and is finding herself right in the midst of the song creation process. ‘I have been sitting down and writing songs in half an hour and not being too precious about them, you just have to let it come out – it can be quite a good release at times! ‘I generally start with the music. I get a melody to begin with and base the chords around it – generally I will hear the chords that will come next before I find the chord. Listening subconsciously will pop out in your own songwriting – I have had a couple of songs come just when I am sleeping, in a dream, I have my little dictaphone to record it. It’s great when you are dreaming and you watch a band play a song and you wake up and go that’s mine.’



Jo Kelly’s future plans include heading over to the States where she was one of 4 four nominees for Alt Country Artists this year. Its an international independent music awards that took her totally by surprise. ‘There were so many New Yorkers that had finalised, and then me from Victoria.’ She’s a girl on a mission. Hear her tunes on www.myspace. com/jokellystephenson or catch her gig at The Bang Thai in Bangalow on Friday. Show is $35 and includes a 2 course dinner. It all kicks off at 6.30pm.

Bugs like it from behind The Soapbox Mandy Nolan I don’t know why, but for some unknown reason today I started googling insect sex. (I must be ovulating. I feel the need to lay eggs on the underside of my desk). The search engine became mildly aroused and then displayed a series of erotic pictures of various insects caught in coitus. As I scrolled through the 6 legged micro porn of rhino beetles, damsel flies, fleas, grasshoppers and lady beetles all engaged in their invertebrate ecstasy I came to one resounding conclusion. Insects like it from behind. They are a tail to tail species whose biology seems not to favour the soft comfort of a reclining missionary. It’s more of an ‘I’ll eat this leaf while you roger me’ approach that is rather refreshing. Oh, you’re fucking me. Jolly good. I’ll just get on with the housework. Why don’t you hold on while I vacuum? It amazes me how in the midst of a good shag most lady insects decide to go for a walk. I have always felt an affinity with the insect world, probably because I am a large female who has often felt the desire to devour the head of my lover after sex. There are issues. It certainly solves any intimacy and commitment problems, because dead bugs don’t complain about how many shoes you have. It’s how these critters actually get sex that astounds me the most. There is a species of male spider native to Europe that plays dead to score. In a study they found that the spiders who play dead get more lady arachnid action than those that bring food. My point exactly. Women, whether two or eight legged have always been suckers for a poor little fella in distress who needs rescuing. ‘Ooh look he’s dead. Poor little guy. Perhaps if I make love to him I’ll give him new life.’ The female of that particular species of

spider must think her good loving has the ability to raise spiders from the dead. It imbues one with a godlike sense of self satisfaction. ‘Hey girls, check this out, I just shagged him back to life!’ It’s a good technique if you are patient. But in the human world I think it’s true to say that dead men generally don’t pull. Speaking of the dead, I have always been amazed by the praying mantis – you’d think after hundreds of thousands of years of evolution the blokes would have formed a men’s group and developed an alternative mating strategy. ‘Talk to her, tell her how her eating your head makes you feel man.’ The idea of being decapitated every time you make love is a little offputting. I am surprised that homosexuality hasn’t taken off in the mantis world. The Gaying Mantis would then be able to live a long and sexually satisfying life complete with his head. Sex is fantastic but it’s certainly not worth losing your noggin. A life as a corpse with an empty neck is a life half lived. What blows me out the most is that male mantises can have sex for up to 8 hours even after their heads have been chewed off by the chicks. That’s extraordinary. Blokes pumped full of Viagra can’t match that. These little fellas are tiny green porn stars, the John Holmes of insect jiggy jiggy. Like the male human species, male praying mantises apparently think with another head, a primitive second brain found in their abdomen, which in their case, costs them their life. But I suppose, it’s worth it, at least they don’t die virgins. If you are into bugs, Jane Davenport has a beautiful exhibition of what she calls artomogy, opening at Waywood on Friday at 6pm – called Life on the Verge.

NEeMA and Saritah join forces in a spectacular vocal showdown at the Bangalow Catholic Hall on Friday. It’s like duelling angels when these fiercely talented, passionate divas share their voice with the crowd. NEeMA was born in Montreal of Egyptian and Lebanese descent. She developed a passion for the world and travelling at an early age. During her summers studying management in university, NEeMA backpacked around Europe and beyond, eventually completing her studies in Sydney, Australia. That’s where her music

started to take shape, and she bought her first guitar while living in Byron Bay. She is joined by Saritah, a woman motivated by her belief that music is a tool through which positive change can be inspired. Saritah’s These Days/You’re The One EP and debut album ‘gratitude’ reveals an incredible songwriting talent and provide a fresh burst of strong spirit and groove that is bound to uplift and inspire. Both releases are distributed nationally through MGM. Show is at 8pm, $15.


DOG TRUMPET BLOWS FOR FEHVA The Dog Trumpet story began at the dawn of the 1990s as a side project for brothers Reg Mombassa and Peter O’Doherty from their main band Mental As Anything. Although Reg and Pete continued on with Mental As Anything until they left that band in 1999, the Dog Trumpet seed had well and truly taken root. Reg Mombassa and Peter O’Doherty are both highly acclaimed artists as well as musicians. For many years Reg has been one of the artists behind the image for clothing line Mambo. They are here on the North Coast for appearances at the FEVHA Visual Arts Festival to raise money for a new rehabilitation centre at the Buttery in Binna Burra near Bangalow. Dog Trumpet has recently released their fourth album Antisocial Tendencies. There are 12 new songs, six each from Reg and Pete plus a cover of the World War Two hit Lili Marlene made famous by Marlene Deitrich. The brothers sing and play all guitars, bass, harp and keyboards with embellishments from stellar guest musicians on cello, drums and percussion, flute, trumpet, trombone, saxophone, tuba, double bass and harmonica. The live lineup has Reg and Pete on guitars and vocals, Bernie Hayes on bass and backing vocals, and Jess Ciampa on drums.

Within a few seconds the sounds blended, and the band’s crazy journey had begun. Josh was still attending school in Sydney, so an older local drummer was sought. Tim Reeves arrived in town a few days later and, despite several attempts, the lineup hasn’t changed since. The first public appearance was at the Spice Café, where kitchen staff and audience members named them the Old Spice Boys.

<<< <<<<CULTURE ULTURE>>> >>> ART ART THAT BUGS YOU Jane Davenport calls herself an ‘artomoogist’. And she is. She goes around taking amazing macro pics of bugs. Her work is whimsical and poetic and has the most intense sense of colour that it’s almost unbelievable that nature would take such risks. Jane’s exhibition: On the Verge opens at Waywood on Friday at 6pm. If you would like to find out just how she works, Jane will be running a 2 day workshop of visual exploration at FEHVA. It asks participants to get down and dirty in the search for interesting subjects. In a move away from grabbing snapshots, participants learn how to approach ‘bugjects’ and capture images that express the real beauty of the moment. Workshop is $150 and limited to 15 people.

ABORIGINAL ART AT ALPITYE In late 1984 Walala Tjapaltjarri, then around 15 years old, and several other members of his Pintupi family walked out of the Gibson Desert in Western Australia and made contact for the first

time with European society. They were described as ‘The Lost Tribe’ and created international headlines. Until that day in 1984 Walala and his family lived the traditional and nomadic life. Now Walala, who has been painting for over ten years, is an internationally acclaimed artist whose work is represented in private and public collections worldwide. The weekend exhibition runs from Friday to Monday at Alpitye Art Studio in Byron Bay and features works from established and emerging artists, ranging from 26 year old Natalie Holmes to the highly acclaimed Gloria Petyarre, an elder stateswoman of the aboriginal art world. She is also featured extensively in major collections around the world. In 2004 her work ‘Leaves’ fetched the (at that time) highest auction price for aboriginal art to date, at a Sotheby’s Auction in Melbourne. These works and many more feature in this extraordinary

>>>b eats n b ops ... DAVE COLEMAN AKA DJ DAVE

GET YOUR ROCKS OFF! Get your dungarees on and head off to Gemfest at the Lismore Showground on Saturday and Sunday. It’s a great opportunity to see amazing gems in the nude as it were, uncluttered by settings, it offers you the chance to select a stone and really make it yours. This is a great family day, and the showgrounds will be full of activities that include gem sieving and fossicking areas (with the fossickers keeping their finds), sandsieve, lucky dip and voting for the most popular display of cclub members’ work. There will be a variety of top line w commercial dealers (housed in the main pavilion) and close to 100 tailgaters (hobbyists and stallholders who trade on the grounds in the open). All of these participants aim their displays at the jewellery, mineral and lapidary field. It’s $4 for adults and $1 for kiddies.

SPLENDOURS OF NORTH AFRICA While you’re on a learning curve after Gemfest, why not join ADFAS Byron Bay and District when they host the lecture ‘The Splendours of North Africa – Roman and Islamic Art of Libya, Tunisia and Morocco’ presented by Christopher Bradley on Monday at the A& I Hall in Bangalow at 7.30pm. Christopher Bradley is an expert in the history and culture of the Middle East and North Africa. Guests are welcome to attend at a cost of $20, which includes supper.

PUT THE C BACK INTO CLUBBING! When I moved to Byron Bay in 1995 Dave Coleman aka DJ Dave C was managing the Carpark. The club was one of the hot spots to be and was packed for three nights every week. Dave also ran bigger capacity events at the dearly missed Epi-Centre and then went on to co-produce the Byron Bay Electronic Music Festival with Beyond the Brain instigators Paul and Kathryn in 2000. Turning the Buddha Bar into a hive of activity and producing ‘The Global Village’ at Splendour in the Grass were his latest ventures. Now Dave seems to have come full circle and is back to take on the Liquid, the club formerly known as Play, giving it a complete make-over. Q: What gigs stood out to you? A: ‘The most outstanding gigs that have been in our region are ‘Beyond The Brain’ at the ‘Old Epicentre’ and ‘The Dawning’ at Drake. The level of production, installation and performance

Q: What will be setting Liquid apart from other clubs in Byron? A: ‘The main thing for me is to do my own thing. I’m not interested in what the other clubs or venues are doing. To focus on my own objectives and not worry about others will make Liquid different.’ Q: Ideally how long should clubs be open for and why? A: ‘I would prefer to see nightclubs open until 5am. Responsible Service of Alcohol’ is very strict these days and good venue operators practise stringent operating systems to ensure community and patron safety. Normally nightclubs have a natural attrition rate after 2am. If clubs could stay open longer, there would be less people leaving at once.

Nightclubs are designed to cater for people who want to be entertained during the night. Q: When is Liquid opening? A: ‘It’s my birthday at the end of May so I have made that the deadline.’ Q: Who would you say has got what it takes to become the next big DJ superstar in the Byron Shire? A: ‘Byron Shire has many star DJ’s throughout a plethora of styles. I am looking forward to exploring undiscovered talent. What I would like to do is find some new up and coming DJs. Part of running a nightclub is using it as a tool to give people a chance to showcase their talent. It’s very satisfying to have the opportunity to be able to discover new talent so I am waiting to see who the next star will be.’ Q: Where can we hear you play next? A: ‘Probably at the newest and most exciting club in Byron.’

>>>cinema... ...>>> GONE BABY GONE The introduction has Casey Affleck’s voice-over observing that it is what we don’t choose in life – most significantly our family – that makes us who we are. Four year-old Amanda McCready was born into a fatherless household to a foul mouthed, drug addled mum. The girl’s abduction comes after a botched cocaine deal, with the secretive circumstances surrounding it and subsequent twists of the investigation into her disappearance opening up unexpectedly like a Russian doll. Taking a child from its mother has a particular resonance in this country and it is a brave if not foolhardy man who would present the argument that it might often benefit the kid, but that is exactly what director Ben Affleck does in this provocative, superior

crime drama. It is set among Boston’s demi monde with, given the subject matter, pointed reminders made of the city’s Catholicism (as they also were in Mystic River). The police make little headway so, in desperation, Bea McCready, Amanda’s aunt, approaches Patrick Kenzie (Casey Affleck) and Angie Gennaro (Michelle Monaghan), two struggling gumshoes, to use their first hand knowledge of the neighbourhood’s low life and become involved in the case. Though equals, it is Kenzie who becomes the focal point of activity as, like a dog with a bone, he gnaws away at getting to the truth. Seeming at first to be an ineffectual type, he reveals in an intense bar room scene a convincing yet near unhinged toughness that gives him a smouldering magnetism. The younger Affleck is fantastic in the part,

Last Day

while Michelle Monaghan, relegated to playing second fiddle, is nonetheless more arresting than she was in her insipid role in Made Of Honour. The moral question that she and Kenzie (and the audience) ultimately debate goes to the heart of the overarching theme of childcare. The plot is complex and not without a hole that might waylay the pernickety, and its writing leaves till late some revelations that are potentially confusing if you have not been paying attention. I baulked at Morgan Freeman in a police commissioner’s uniform, but the performances are universally praiseworthy, including those from the lesser lights, who give so much grittiness and a sense of truth to events (Amy Ryan deservedly got an Oscar nomination as Amanda’s mother). This is a movie of the highest quality, from its design, photography and seedy atmospherics to its perfect score – and a gunshot that startled me more than any has for ages. ~ John Campbell

WHAT HAPPENS IN VEGAS Cameron Diaz, a Wall Street power chick (off to a bad start already, aren’t we?) is humiliatingly dumped by her nerdy fiancé at a surprise party she has organised for him. Ashton Kutcher is sacked by his father for his lackadaisical approach to his job at a furniture factory. Independently, the pair fly to Las Vegas to lift their spirits (could you think of any place worse to go?).

they wake up hitched. In sobriety’s cold light they realise that they have done a stupid thing, which is not a one-off moment, for this is a movie full of stupid people doing stupid stuff. They have a bit of a barney before deciding to go their separate ways. As Cameron is stomping off, Ashton is feeding a pokie with her last quarter. Bing! He hits the jackpot. Three million bucks. Their squabbling over who gets what share of the windfall (remember, they are still married) is what sets the story in train. Next minute they are before a judge who sets them one of those ridiculous tests so common to this type of pap. The couple must stay together for six months and demonstrate some effort at finding conjugal bliss before any determination is made about the money. In reality, each conspires to have the other walk away from the marriage and thus forfeit any claim to the booty – c’est la guerre. At this point, if you hadn’t already begun to do so, you’ll start wondering how long it will be before the two quarrelsome hearts are beating as one. Dauntingly, that joyful moment is about another eighty minutes away, which is an arduously long time, by any humane standards, for the viewer to put up with Ashton and his jackhammer Adam’s apple. In all honesty though, it must be said that he is an awfully pretty fellow – in fact he is prettier even than his leading lady. Cameron still has the legs, and we get a couple of ganders at them, but up against the boy she looks old enough to be his mother. The temptation is to dismiss this as tripe, but as I am constantly reminded, there is no accounting for taste – in the second row a group of youngsters hooted and laughed like drains as frequently as I nearly dislocated my jaw with yawning. ~ John Campbell

LARS AND THE REAL GIRL Lars And The Real Girl stars Ryan Gosling as a shy 27-year-old who doesn’t like contact with anyone. He’s never recovered from his father’s death (his mother died in childbirth), and his older brother Gus

has never understood him. Then Lars turns up with a new girlfriend, Bianca, who’s a full-size doll. The family doctor (Patricia Clarkson) advises them to go along with the delusion to allow Lars to sort it out. And with everyone in their small Midwestern town cooperating, Bianca becomes much more than part of the furniture. By filling the story with hilarious dark comedy, the filmmakers draw us gently into Lars’ experience, his own warped reality and its impact on the community. As the doctor observes,

‘Bianca is in town for a reason.’ And she’s in this film to allow us an intriguing glimpse of real humanity, along with a light-handed look at such weighty themes as religious tolerance, mental illness, male-female issues and what it means to be a grown-up. By the end, we realise that we probably have a quirk even more ridiculous than Lars does. This film is a delightful and heartwarming cinematic treat. This drama, laced with comedy, is one of the most original films in years. ~ Lounge Cinema

Television Guide 1. The Indiana Jones franchise bounced back with The Last Crusade (Prime, Wednesday 8.30pm) after the badly paced Temple of Doom, largely due to the presence of Sean Connery. 2. Will Smith and Eva Mendes manage to make Hitch (NBN, Wednesday 8.30pm) a pleasant romantic comedy, although it slips from the mind very quickly. 3. Prime has finally done the right thing by the excellent Boston Legal (Monday 9.30pm) by moving it to an accessible time slot and screening episodes from the latest series. How long this will last is anyone’s guess.

There is a pot of something bubbling on the stove top as I stand waiting for my skinny latte; as I watch, Shaun the cafĂŠ chef whirls around with a grin. â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;I picked,â&#x20AC;&#x2122; he tells me, â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;an entire garbage bag full of rosellas, and this is what they have boiled down to.â&#x20AC;&#x2122; Into the open kitchen I venture, feeling privileged, and gaze into the pot where perhaps a litre of seething, foamy crimson is turning into jam. Shaun dips a spoon into it and I let it cool before tasting: there is star anise and lemon rind and cinnamon in there among a rich tangy sweetness, and I am imagining it with a soft ripe brie smeared on to good bread. Rosellas â&#x20AC;&#x201C; the fruit â&#x20AC;&#x201C; are a member of the hibiscus family and have long been prized by housewives for their jamand-cordial-making properties. The pectin which sets the jam is found in the seedpod surrounded by the red ďŹ&#x201A;eshy calyx which provides the glorious hue. It goes to show that you can make jam out of almost anything, including vegetables. Pectin, the setting agent, is found naturally in both fruits and vegetables, providing them with structure and ďŹ rmness in the same way that collagen keeps skin ďŹ rm. It enables the fruit to thicken into a gel, but will only work properly when combined with exactly the right amount of sugar and fruit. It seems to me that few people, however, bother making their own jam. Presumably this is an issue of time, but perhaps too it is due to the dubious nutritional merits of this particular foodstuff. Yet, as with much in this world, a little every now and again can be a lovely thing â&#x20AC;&#x201C; and certainly jam is versatile. One of the most inexpensive desserts in the world guaranteed to evince admiration and pleasure is a lattice jam tart, for which all you need are pantry basics â&#x20AC;&#x201C; ďŹ&#x201A;our and sugar and butter and eggs and a jar of any sort of jam â&#x20AC;&#x201C; and a couple of hours. If you have one of those cute little pastry wheels which result in rippled edges, all the fancier. Otherwise itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s just a matter of making your own buttery shortcrust pastry, rolling it out to line a pie dish, ďŹ lling it with jam then artistically, patiently and sweetly arranging a lattice of pastry strips on top.

and pop into a hot oven until golden and fragrant. Raise it to another level by serving it with a bitter chocolate sauce nubbly with chopped toasted nuts. Apricot jam, thinned with a little water and warmed till it melts, is the fastest way to endowing a glamorous, professional sheen to fruit-topped ďŹ&#x201A;ans, cheesecakes or tarts. Then there are swiss rolls, old-fashioned admittedly, but also fun and easy to make: basic sponge batter poured into a lamington tin and baked, turned out on to a clean tea towel when cool, spread thickly with jam and whipped, sweetened cream, then, still in the tea towel, rolled gently and carefully up. Dredge with sifted icing sugar, slice and serve! Similarly, for pretty pinwheel shortbreads,you can make a buttery pastry lightened with egg, then rolled out into a rectangle on a length of greaseproof paper. Spread jam evenly on to the dough, sprinkle on some cinnamon then roll up the dough length-wise, peeling away the paper as you go. Roll it in plastic wrap and chill for half an hour before slicing at half inch intervals and baking until lightly browned. Or make that fabulous sixties slice, topping a baked shortbready base (125 grams butter and 1/4 cup sugar creamed together, mixed with one large egg and 1 1/2 cups SR ďŹ&#x201A;our) with about a cup of any sort of jam then cover it with a blend of 1 1/2 cups dessicated coconut, another large egg and 1/2 cup sugar. Return it to the oven until it is golden brown and a little caramelised around the edges and the jam is beginning to bubble through: I doubt there is a person in the world capable of resisting this!

nobody does it better® The first FIDE Grand Prix tournament ended in the Azeri capital Baku this week with the younger generation dominant. Magnus Carlsen, Wang Yue and local hero Vugar Gashimov (pictured below) tied for first place in Baku and shared $A120,000 ahead of an elite field which included only three players over the age of 25. Carlsen was the top seed but the Norwegian teenager took a long time to get going before winning his final two games to catch the two leaders on the line.

CHESS by Ian Rogers Play at Byron Services, Mon 7-10pm; Mullum Poinciana Café, Sat 2-5pm

For Wang and Gashimov, victory in Baku was the high point of their careers to date. Wang, 20, is not even sure of a place in the 2008 Chinese Olympic team but he completed the 13 round tournament undefeated. Wang came into the tournament regarding it as ‘a chance to play with superstars’ and even after the event insisted that he was not on the same level as big names such as Svidler and Adams, both of whom could manage only a 50% score in Baku. However, the biggest surprise of the tournament was the success of Gashimov, ranked only the third best player in Azerbaijan. Gashimov, at 21 the veteran of the winning trio, has completed a chess course at the Baku Sport Academy and, like his co-winners, studies chess around eight hours a day. Gashimov attributes some

of his success to recent government support, which has enabled him to hire a full-time coach and avoid the need to play tournaments for money reasons only. Gashimov’s best victory came in the penultimate round, against the thenleader Alexander Grischuk. Gashimov had seen Grischuk play a dubious opening line in an earlier game and had found what he believed to be a refutation of Grischuk’s idea; it worked like a dream. Baku 2008 White: V Gashimov Black: A Grischuk Opening: Ruy Lopez 1.e4 e5 2.Nf3 Nc6 3.Bb5 a6 4.Ba4 d6 5.0-0 Bg4 6.h3 h5!? 7.d4 Grischuk had played this pseudo-piece offer in an earlier round – 7.hxg4 hxg4 is very dangerous for White. 7...b5 8.Bb3 Nxd4 9.hxg4 Nxb3 10.axb3 hxg4 11.Ng5 Qd7 12.Qd3!

Gashimov’s new idea. Black’s counterplay relies on the knight on g5 lacking a retreat square.

Sports Roundup with Eve Jeffery

It pays to have a Sunny outlook when losing your marbles Eve Jeffery When I was a kid I spent many of my school days watching boys bums. Once the day of classes was under way we would all listen to our rumbling tummies until 10.15 when the bell rang and with out fail Tim McGrath would flash his milk mustache and the boys would scramble in their desks for little cloth bags before heading to the dusty end of the yard to play marbles. Forget crop circles. The OLA school yard in Cheltenham would be covered in bum circles as groups of boys large and small went head down tail up in the quest for marble dominance. It was serious business. Circles were carefully drawn with pencils or paddle pop sticks in the dusty earth and the combatants would eye each other off with sidelong glances before the games began. After much shouting and ‘lagging’ the shooting order would be decided and bums in the air, click-clack, click, click, ‘Who pinched my “sunny”.Give it back or I’ll kill ya’, ‘I am having a Prac until I hit’, ‘my cats-eye got your fireball, it’s mine now’ and lordy help anyone accused of fudging – then we again wade in the waters of bad sports. It appears that the game of marbles originated in ancient Rome. During the festival of Saturnalia at winter solstice, which in modern times is celebrated as Christmas, our toga wearing

ancestors gifted each other with among other trinkets, bags of nuts. Originally the game was called nuts and was played in a similar way as we play marbles today. Obviously some enterprising fellow, probably the ancestor of Harold ‘Matt’ Matson or Elliot Handler (hence the name “Matt-el”), started producing the ‘nuts’ on a grand scale in the form of little round balls made or clay, agate or glass. There are historical references to the Roman game of nuts. The Roman poet Ovid wrote of the game and the Emperor Romulus Augustus is known to have played nuts as a child. They took it seriously in ancient times and they took

it seriously in recent times when a few moons ago, Mary Ashton was a serious contender – and they are taking it seriously again as Brunswick Heads prepares for its inaugural Marbles Championships. Held on the Saturday of the Old and Gold Festival, the championships hopes to encourage marble players young and old and especially the baby boomers to ‘get down and get dirty’ in the quest for (modest) cash prizes. Mary would like to see Brunswick Heads become a vortex of people who have lost their marbles in what she hopes will become an annual event , a pilgrimage to the dusty places of Brunswick Heads.

Mullum’s mettle sees off Raiders John Campbell The Mullumbimby Giants recorded a hard fought but fitting 26-16 victory against a spirited Tweed Coast Raiders outfit on Saturday night. The visitors pressed early, but it was Mullum who opened the scoring when Travis Drought swooped on a dropped ball and found centre Joel Christie at flat chat in support. Christie veered towards the corner as the Tweed fullback gained on him – he would have felt him breathing down his neck – but, to everybody’s relief, the number three made it to the line. Drought’s conversion gave the locals a lead that they maintained throughout. But like that try, there was always a nagging worry that they might be pipped at the post. With play going from end to end, hooker Jake Woods capitalised on his pack’s inroads to make a probing run into the Raiders’ twenty.

Five-eighth Drought astutely read the numbers and put winger Chad Grant into space with a beautifully weighted pass. The winger beat the cover and the hosts were ahead 10-0. The Raiders came close a couple of times, but they were let down by their hands as much as they were defied by Mullum’s committed tackling. A potentially devastating blow to the Giants’ chances came when halfback Jake Francisco was carted off with a serious leg injury. An ambulance attended, but they make ’em tough out west – Cobar Jake managed a cheery wave to the mob from his stretcher. With the break looming, the Raiders’ passes finally stuck and they got the try they had threatened, but that was countered immediately when Drought shimmied, dummied and sold the Brooklyn Bridge to Tweed’s goal line defence for a terrific solo try and an encouraging

looking comfortable at 26-10. Tweed still weren’t done, though. A kick and chase culminated in a freakish Hail Mary pass by their winger finding an unmarked Raider. The try, plus the extras, brought them back to 16-26 and, with ten to go and the ref showing a benign disposition towards the visitors, the competition points were still up for grabs.

Sports Roundup with Eve Jeffery Thompson makes Byron Tri look too easy

Local soccer has a great weekend

Crossing the line looking like he could turn around and do it all again was Saturday’s Byron Bay Triathlon winner Simon Thompson. The Lennox athlete who finished the 1.5km swim, 40km cycle and 10km Olympic distance race in under two hours, 3.5 minutes ahead of his closest rival, appeared fresh and relaxed as he took line honours and immediatly began a series of interviews with waiting media without drawing so much as an extra breath. In the past other commitments have kept Simon from competing in this event, but being a first timer didn’t hamper his race.

In his effortless win he clocked the fastest time in the swim leg, due more to his dash across the sand than his freestyle, but once out of the water he was in the lead all the way, in a display of peak condition athleticism. Looking forward rather than back, Thompson who moved to Lennox Head late last year, will now put the finishing touches to his World Championships preparations before heading off to Canada for the competiton to be held next month in Vancouver, leaving behind the disappointment of missing out on a place in the 2008 Australian Olympic team bound for Beijing team.

Second and third place in the pro male event were Josh Maeder in 1:51:39 and Adam Carlton in 1:52:01, both putting in great performances during the event. Other winners on the day were Liz Blatchford who blitzed the competition in the open female division, the only woman to come in under 2 hours in a time of 1:58:18, two minutes ahead of the next female Bek Keat (2:00:17) and Melissa Vandewater (2:06:47). Organisers were pleased with the event and say it was a successful tri where 750 competitors werre treated to perfect conditions on a fantastic far north coast day.

An exciting weekend of soccer played around the shire was yet another reminder that the season is well and truly under way. The Rams played at home against last year’s grand finalists, the Italo Stars, and it was game on. The premier reserves game saw the young Rams trounce the Stars in a 4-0 win with goals scored by Shin (2), Yantra 1 and Dane. Best for the Rams in an outstanding team performance were Stuart, Luis and Gabriel. The Premier Rams performed well. The first half saw them hacking away at the Stars defence, Jonathon and Sam Owens plowing through the opposition. The Stars were awarded a questionable penalty which prompted Bruce Morhaus into action and he racked up 4 unaswered goals leading the Rams to a 4-1 win, the Rams an obvious contender in 2008. In other grades the men’s seconds made it two in a row with another great win, this time Kyogle were on the wrong end of a 2-0 loss. The womens 3rd division performed well with a 3-0 win over Pottsville, goal scores Meredith (2) and Ella (1) sealed victory. The 3rd division mens had a draw and the 4th division lost to Casino 5-0 after with only 9 players. This next round see the premiers again at home to Lennox Head.

A perfect Saturday afternoon saw all Brunswick Valley grades at home for the first time this season. The sixths got off to a blistering start by romping home 6-0 over an understrength Lismore Workers. Ben Mohler opened the scoring, to make it 1-0 at the break. In the second half, the Workers rearguard began to tire and suddenly the floodgates opened. An own goal was followed by four more in a magical five-minute spell when Valley could do no wrong. Jamie Paterson was on target, twice, with one apiece for Bootsy and Krill. Man of the match Jono Hughes made sure that Workers remained scoreless

with some no-nonsense defending. The 4ths had less luck, going down 1-0 to Workers. Mick Hardie and Jeff Begovic defended with grim determination, but despite going 1-0 down, the Mullum boys stuck to their task and had the better of the second half. The 2nds had an almost identical game, going down 1-0 to the Dunoon outfit. Valley dominated the middle of the park for long periods through Leon McLean, Matt Taylor and Adam Goodhand. A goal bound Dean Treveton volley was superbly saved by the Dunoon keeper to preserve the lead and take the three points back to Nut Land.

Older swimmers going for grey Australia’s baby boomers intend to live for decades longer than their parents and yet one-third of all drownings in Australia involve people aged over 55. In disturbing new research, older people were over-represented in water accidents and drownings and in response the Australian Government has funded a new, national Grey Medallion swimming program. At the launch of the program recently, Olympic swimming legend, John Konrads and Royal Life Saving medical adviser Pro-

fessor John Pearn joined Richmond MP Justine Elliot to offer full support to this new program that will promote a healthy, active and safe aquatic lifestyle for Australia’s growing older population. The development of the Royal Life Saving Grey Medallion program has been supported by the Australian Government Department of Health and Ageing which recognises that the Grey Medallion program encourages people to remain independent and active as they age, while also reducing drowning rates.
