Byron Councillors reassured on CDO exposure in investment portfolio Byron Shire Council held a workshop last week to provide advice to Councillors on the current investment portfolio, Council’s investment strategy and the impact on future budgets. Councillors were addressed by representatives of the Investor Services Group for Markets of the ANZ Bank, who informed councillors on the technical aspects of investments held and provided answers to any investment and market related questions. According to a Council press release, the banking representatives confirmed that Byron Shire Council was not one of the councils that had handed over the management of funds to Lehman Brothers and now found themselves facing probable capital losses and taking legal action against the com-

pany. The workshop identified that while Council held a number of Collateralised Debt Obligations (CDOs) which were currently not liquid, adequate funds were held in other investments to finance the delivery of budgeted outcomes in future years. Kevin Franey of Thomas Noble and Russell, Council’s auditors, also addressed the Councillors to assure them that the decisions made by staff relating to the investment of Council funds were compliant with the Department of Local Government Ministerial Guidelines. However, Mr Franey advised that due to technical accounting issues relating to the current non-existent market for CDO products, Council’s financial report for the year to June 30 would be quali-

fied. Mr Franey stressed that the qualification was not a reflection on the investments themselves, but related to the situation whereby the valuations for CDO investments provided to Council at June 30 were unable to be calibrated to the market at that time, as required by Australian Accounting Standards. Council’s Manager Financial Services, Jim Bolger, advised that of the $13m face value of CDOs held by Council at the commencement of the market downturn in December 2007, $5m had subsequently matured at full face value with all interest being paid. This included a CDO with a face value of $2m which matured during October 2008. ‘While no guarantees can be given on any investments,

Noeline Brown, Ambassador for the Ageing, joined the Byron Lighthouse Fun Run and Walk on Sunday to help raise awareness and funds for the Cancer Council and to promote active ageing. Noeline was appointed as Australia’s first Ambassador for Ageing in April this year by Federal Minister for Ageing and local MP Justine Elliott. A major aim of this important role is to promote positive ageing and at this event, to encourage the whole community from fitness enthusiasts to the not-so-fit to join in a 10 km fun run or walk from Main Beach to the Lighthouse and back via Tallow Beach. ‘It’s clearly better to have an ageing population which is healthy, active and involved,’ said Noeline at the opening of the event. ‘One of the really important parts of my role is encouraging older Australians to remain active, both physically and as contributors to society. ‘Staying active and involved enhances your quality of life and the health benefits you receive from exercise will serve you well for many years to come. ‘This event is a way to take

part in active ageing and it’s fantastic to be contributing to such a great cause.’ Noeline became a household name in the 1960s when she starred in The Mavis Bramston Show. More recent-

ly Noeline appeared in the hit Australian film Razzle Dazzle and in the TV series Dancing with the Stars and in 2005 she wrote her autobiography, Noeline Brown – Long Term Memoir.

Council’s investments From front page

staff are confident that the remainder of those investments will also mature at full value,’ Mr Bolger stated. Discussions were also held on equity linked products that Council held and which had reduced in value due to the current market conditions. These products were purchased with funds not identified for use in the short term to gain exposure for Council to markets that have proven to provide the greatest return over the long term. Councillors were advised that while some interest may be foregone on these products, insurance for the capital protection of the full value invested at maturity was a condition of the investments.

Shearwater’s rainbow threads

Hacker takes over local’s email Local woman Tjintana Matahari got a surprise recently when she discovered that she had taken a trip to Europe that even she didn’t know about. Tjintana found out about her unscheduled getaway from an email doing the rounds beseeching all the people on her email list to send money to her in the UK as she had lost her wallet and was stranded. As it turns out Tjintana’s hotmail account has been hacked and the email requesting money has been circulating ever since. Local police have been unable to assist Tjintana and when The Echo contacted the Australian Federal Police, we were directed to another government agency call SCAM-

watch who merely suggested that internet users get better firewalls and anti virus protection – not much help when the horse has bolted. Tjintana would like those on her email list to know she is not in the UK and to please

not deposit any funds into an account for her her benefit. For more information on SCAMwatch you will get more from visiting the website than a phone call. You will find them at www.scamwatch. gov.au

After gruelling hours walking on a sprained ankle, Darren Oakes finally made it into Byron Bay. The roof plumber from Yamba is on a quest – to raise awareness and money for children’s cancer by undertaking a surf-walk from Tweed Heads to Manly in Sydney. ‘At the beginning of the year, my three year old daughter Hollie contacted cancer in her lymph node glands,’ Darren told The Echo. Thankfully Hollie has since recovered, but the scare prompted Darren into action – his quest is to raise awareness and money for The Starlight Foundation. ‘I started last Monday at 12pm from Duranbah and made it to Hastings Point before spraining my ankle. From there I had to walk around 25kms to Byron.’ The doctor told Darren to rest the foot for at least a week. ‘I want to make sure that my foot is absolutely back to normal, with no pain, before I embark again.’ How long will walking to Sydney along the beach take? ‘I planned around two months at twenty kilometres a day, but it looks like I may do a little better than that.’ The biggest river stretches to overcome will be Yamba

Working together to protect country A catchment management plan for the Wilsons River catchment has received funding from the NSW Environmental Trust for the next three years. The project, which is called Reconnecting to Country, features ‘a different culture of community engagement that includes on-the-ground environmental actions and cultural exchange with Widjabul custodians’, according to its creators. Spokesperson for the project, Anthony Acret from Rous Water, says that the project aims to improve catchment health, build a culture of sustainability, develop creative partnerships, build capacity to employ aboriginal people in sustainability education and action, and cultivate a sense of place and reconciliation through action and culture. The Widjabul custodians have a simple message for everyone, ‘Jahna ngali garimaleh jogun’, which means ‘Let’s stand together, looking after country’. Reconnecting to Country will provide an opportunity

Learn more about local reptiles Brunswick Valley Landcare is holding a reptile workshop to help people recognise the local reptiles and to realise the vital role reptiles play in our region. ‘Improved knowledge of the local reptiles will help us to co-exist peacefully and safely with them,’ says the group. Local ecologist Mark Fitzgerald, pictured, will show slides of local snakes, lizards and turtles and explain how they evolved into the creatures we see today. ‘All reptiles started off with four legs,’ Mark said. ‘Snakes are derived from lizards that

have lost their legs. Most modern snakes have only one lung due to the narrowing of their body shape. ‘They don’t have external ears so don’t hear airborne sounds, but they are extremely sensitive to vibration and have an acute sense of smell.’ Mark will outline the life cycles, behaviour patterns and habitat preferences of our local reptile species, and teach people how to identify the most commonly encountered species. He has lived in the northern rivers since 1975, has completed a PhD on the ecology of the threatened Stephens’ banded snake, and undertaken a research project into the ecology of pale-headed snakes in western NSW. He has also researched carpet pythons in agricultural landscapes, and the unique Shedao Island pit-viper population in eastern China. Current research includes distribution of the endangered broad–headed snake in the Sydney basin. BVL’s reptile workshop will be held from 1pm to 4pm on Sunday October 26 in Mullumbimby. It is free for financial Landcare members and $5 for non-members. Afternoon tea is provided. To book, ring Judy MacDonald on 6684 5390.

The Empire strikes back: flicks return Susanna Freymark

Twelve years ago, after the credits rolled on the final film, the Empire Cinema in Mullumbimby closed its doors. The old Empire seats, still in rows, now sit in an abandoned shed in Rosebank. Alan Goldstein saw the seats and, along with film buff Noel Jeffries, was inspired to bring the movies back to Mullumbimby. Both Alan and Noel know how film brings everyone together. ‘It’s about community cinema, everyone draws their breath, everyone laughs and everyone cries – together,’ Alan said. Alan is president of the Federal Film Society and Noel is the club’s projectionist. Their aim is to not only bring a memorable film event to town in the form of Mullum Flicks but they’d like to see a regular film night happening in Mullumbimby. This is the blueprint Alan and Noel are replicating. A

Go black tie at CT scanner fundraising ball A Byron Bay businessman has joined doctors, health professionals, politicians and community members in the campaign to get a PET/CT scanner in the Northern Rivers. Warren Meanwell knows how valuable a PET/CT scanner is for detecting cancer and the spread of the disease. At 47, Warren is currently facing his challenges with cancer. He was diagnosed with melanoma two years ago after discovering a mole on his

ankle. Despite treatment the cancer has spread. ‘I have had numerous PET/ CT scans in recent times, the last one was three weeks ago,’ Warren said. ‘The closest machine available to me is in Brisbane. ‘To have a PET/CT scanner in this area would benefit so many people, not just people like me who are living with cancer.’ PET/CT scanners are not just used to diagnose and

identify cancers, but they can be used in the detection and treatment of heart disease and brain disorders. The campaign to get a PET/ CT scanner in the Northern Rivers is also being supported by nuclear radiologists Dr John Mulholland and Dr Warren Lun. ‘The PET/CT scanner is regarded as the best cancer detection machine in the world,’ Dr Mulholland said. ‘One machine costs approx-

Check out Council’s affordable housing strategy While affordable housing has become a critical issue for many communities, few NSW councils have taken on the challenge of finding solutions. Over the last decade, Byron Shire has seen the demand for housing push rental and purchase prices out of reach for many long-term residents and low to moderate income workers. ‘Byron Shire Council decided to take on the challenge of affordable housing in the background of a housing and homelessness crisis in Bryon that is steadily getting worse every week,’ said deputy mayor Tom Tabart in a press release last week. Council, through its Af-

fordable Housing Committee, staff, community organisations and residents, has been examining, debating, and working on the issue for nearly eight years. In that time, the suitability of many Council-owned sites and other proposals for the development of new affordable housing has been assessed. However, the main stumbling block for many projects has usually been a lack of funding. Council’s Draft Affordable Housing Strategy proposes new ways of approaching the problem through planning policies, voluntary agreements with developers and partnerships with private and community organisations.

The idea is to establish an Affordable Housing Fund that will be used to create new affordable rental housing in carefully selected sites through partnerships with public, private and community sector organisations who have land, cash and/or tenancy management services to contribute to the final project. Cr Tabart said, ‘The proposed affordable housing strategies are a bright prospect for the new term of Council. I’m looking forward to encouraging other councils in the region to take on the issue of affordable housing.’ The draft Affordable Housing Strategy will be on public

exhibition until November 18. Community information stalls and evening workshops will be held across Byron Shire: Wednesday October 22, Bangalow Heritage Park (next to Post Office), 10.30 am–12.30 pm, and Council Chambers, 5 pm–7 pm. Thursday 23: Byron Farmers Market, Butler Street Reserve, 8 am–11 am, outside Woolworths, Jonson Street, 2 pm–4 pm,workshop Byron Community & Cultural Centre, Jonson Street, 5 pm–7 pm. A copy of the strategy can be downloaded from Council’s website www.byron.nsw. gov.au.

Mr Rees, leave spin to the spiders

Death rights

Their tour of duty was brief and when Iemma resigned on September 5, the incoming Premier showed them the door and gave them redundancy pay-outs – not hush money! – of between $20,000 and $30,000 each. The art of spinning in NSW politics dates back to the Wran era. The former QC, 2GB broadcaster and Sydney University thespian was the first premier to recognise the media as an instrument of political rule and how to exploit it in the age of television.

fice in August 2005, he initially eschewed the spin doctor approach but then succumbed to it. As much as he tried, Iemma could never emulate the media performances of Wran or Carr and he began to look shifty, evasive and uncomfortable. Because he lacked authority and credibility, he became painfully embarrassing to watch. As a means of political rule, spin doctoring is out of fashion not only in NSW but in other parts of the world. It helped bring Tony Blair to power in

State of Affairs The Iemma government spent $63.8m on media and policy staff in 2006-07. with Alex Mitchell As his media adviser Brian Dale wrote: ‘With television, Wran had one great thing going for him – he was a natural. He never needed coaching or any manipulative actions.’ (The Wran Era edited by Troy Bramston, The Federation Press 2006). Bob Carr, a former journalist and frustrated actor, learned from Wran’s media mastery and perfected it. Carr’s natural theatricality and his commanding voice allowed him to use the electronic media to sell his policies and dig his government out of the tightest corner. By dominating the daily news agenda, he also managed to bury the Opposition and its three Carr era leaders, Peter Collins, Kerry Chikarovski and John Brogden. He developed a five-point strategy to massage the media and dominate it: 1. Keep your cool. 2. Distract reporters. 3. Appeal to reporters’ vanity. 4. Make ’em laugh. 5. Make good your escape. When Iemma came to of-

Britain but ultimately destroyed him when his standing was shot to pieces by the lies he told about weapons of mass destruction and the reasons for the invasion and occupation of Iraq. Economic and environmental issues are now so starkly posed that people are demanding frankness and honesty; they don’t want sugar-coated promises, double talk, duplicity or hypocrisy. When I first joined the Press Gallery in Canberra 45 years ago, Prime Minister Robert Menzies had a personal staff of three – private secretary Frank Jennings, secretary Hazel Craig and press secretary Ray Maley followed by Tony Eggleton. One year ago when I left the NSW Parliamentary Press Gallery, a Government minister had a total of 14 press secretaries plus policy advisers, electorate staff and personal executive staff. In all, his ministerial office staff numbered 20. Admittedly, he had three portfolios to manage but it was still a phenomenal number of

spin doctors for one politician to have on call. Currently there are 23 journalists from newspapers, TV and radio in the Press Gallery at State Parliament while there are more than 150 press secretaries attached to ministers, government departments and government agencies. It means that in the daily war for truth and information, the journos are outnumbered about seven to one. While it is a natural function of governments – and a perfectly legitimate one – to ‘sell its message’ to the voters, the process becomes antidemocratic and an offence against the public interest when two things happen: 1. The corporate media is seduced by government advertising to become a party to the government’s political agenda; 2. Reporters transmit unalloyed ‘spin’ to the public pretending that they are writing ‘exclusives’ or genuinely researched information. They cease being watchdogs and become lapdogs. Former Prime Minister John Howard, aka the lying rodent, was a consummate practitioner of selling ‘spin’ to the media conglomerates and the Canberra Press Gallery. During his 11 years in office the bill for government advertising was a colossal $1 billion (that’s all in taxpayers’ dollars) and he had a collection of hand-fed journalists at his constant disposal. Nathan Rees has started his premiership saying that it won’t be media-driven or poll-driven and he has elevated action and practical results as the benchmarks of his administration. Well and good. But the 20plus percentage anti-Labor swing in last weekend’s by-elections at Ryde, Cabramatta and Lakemba shows that the damage has already been done. Still, he has nothing to lose by giving it ‘a red hot go’ and leaving the spin to the spiders. â–

Who is responsible for this terrible destruction? Citizens can be fined for removing native plants, so how has this total devastation been permitted? In my view this is an outrageous act of vandalism and I can only hope that your local council was not one of the perpetrators.

Defence Organisation: Senator Ludlam: Are you familiar with the US Space Command’s document, Vision for 2020? It was published some time ago. Ms Skinner: I have not read that. Is there somebody else here who has? Group Capt Davison: Yes, I have read it. Senator Ludlam: My understanding is that that is still live policy, even though it was developed some time ago – in 1997. It does declare the intention of the US to deploy space based strike weapons. Do you see the weaponisation of space as potentially putting at risk all these other capabilities that you have described as quite essential to Australia’s security – through documents such as this? Ms Skinner: From a Defence perspective, I think we remain interested for the reason that Mr Coleman outlined, in terms of the potential for aggressive activity in space to interrupt our ability to conduct our business and to undermine our economic stabil-

(Senate Inquiry into The Current State of Australia’s Space Science & Industry Sector, E10, July 29, 2008). It is scandalous that the head of the ADO’s Strategic Policy is ignorant of the US master plan for the weaponisation of space and that our universities are collaborating in research

Byron Bay

Political will Hello, fellow Byron Shire residents. I am a political youth. I have lived in Byron and Mullum for my whole life. I love experiencing new landscapes, so I have travelled across

Australia and also to various places overseas. But whenever I come back to the Byron Shire I am pleased to see it as slightly different than when I left, in that when I come back I see fully the paramount natural energy of the land here that beforehand I had grown to take for granted. This is a beautiful place where we live. One has to remember to not take it for granted, and to enjoy it. And a person such as myself, as well as the general people of our shire who have

environmental and world knowledge, should try to do all they can for the good of the natural landscape of this wonderful area. Doing work for not-forprofit environmental/wildlife organisations is a great way to selflessly contribute to the betterment of other life in our superlatively rich landscape of the Northern Rivers. I do all that I can on that front, and I also urge friends and family to look deep down into themselves and see that doing this kind of work is purely a benefit for one’s good karma of self, as well as for the good of others. Another way that one can act and make a preeminent difference is through the arena of politics. This arena can be a risky and corrupt forefront of conservative greed and propaganda. But this arena can also be used for paramount good, if it is approached with a focused and environmental frame of mind. Political people who have these two excellent qualities need to be supported by a large backing of people from all walks of life, if they are to succeed. They need the support of concurring minds that hold impulses of wit and knowledge if they are to attain authority that is non-egotistical and purely representing the majority of Australian citizens voiced through the process of democracy. Recently, as of course you would know, we have successfully elected a majority of excellent new local council members. The proportion of

‘Greens’, and other like-minded councillors, compared to the more conservative councillors is a great one. It is a great one in that we have well-intentioned representatives for us, the people of the Byron Shire. A new councillor, and for the Greens, is Simon Richardson. He is my favourite teacher at school (I am in year 12), and he is a perfect example of the focused and environmental political-person. At the first council meeting, he gave an impressive ‘maiden speech’. He is for the environment, and he is for youth. I am a youth of the Byron Shire, and I say this: I am happy to have him as my representative in council, and he is a man that is a personal inspiration for me to continue my political activism. Simon, and also Jan in particular, are great, focused, and intelligent people. The others are as well of course, but these two especially. They need to be supported, and they need to be shown respect from us, people of the local area. Thank you. Andy Mcewen Bertock

No real solutions in tourism management plan Michele Grant

Byron Shire Draft Tourism Management Plan was developed to provide ‘a strategic and integrated framework to guide the management, development and marketing of tourism in the Shire over the next decade’. Prepared by Dr Meredith Lawrence and Professor Jeremy Buultjens from the Australian Regional Tourism Research Centre, the plan focuses on coordinating efforts to enhance and develop the volatile tourism industry. Big issues of global warming and peak oil barely rate a mention, and now we’re in economic meltdown the visitation projections may need to be reviewed. The tourism plan includes a lofty feelgood vision statement and a list of shared values and principles to underpin key objectives and guide the process. The plan identifies 13 fairly generic objectives and a wish-list of ‘strategies’ in the three key focus areas of management, development and marketing. The first objective is to ‘establish an effective and collaborative tourism management structure’ which means set up a ‘skill-based’ Tourism Advisory Committee (TAC). Membership will include the token community and environmental representatives sharing the vision and decision-making with an influential array of skilled business, tourism and government leaders. The second objective is to employ a full time tourism officer to do the work and ‘implement strategies’. The third is find funding. The action plan recommends TAC and the tourism officer initially operate under BSC auspice at public expense ‘until the business and tourism sector matures’. Then TAC may become an industry-based, self-funded organisation. TAC and the new tourism officer will have a lot to do. The action plan includes developing a comprehensive research program with exhaustive data collection and visitor monitoring to improve understanding of the economic, social and environmental benefits and impacts of tourism. TAC will help develop education and communication programs, a crisis and risk management strategy, an investment and infrastructure strategy and an integrated transport strategy. Perhaps these new strategies will answer the tough questions like how do you ‘sustainably’ cram a million or more visitors into Byron’s small towns and villages each year? The action plan also relies on Council’s DA process to provide effective environmental management. BSC Devel-

opment Control Plans will need to provide clear guidelines for tourist developments, resolve holiday letting issues and ensure equitable funding for section 94 contributions. No details are provided. The action plan offers no tangible solutions to nagging problems, just a long list of vague aspirations. The action plan recommends establishing a marketing subcommittee to coordinate the development of an ‘agreed Brand’. The sub-committee will

also develop a ‘brand policy’ to protect the Byron brand from predatory practices and inappropriate exploitation. The marketing strategy will target high yield/low impact visitors who share the vision and the values as they tour the Shire. The party image and schoolies are out – which may upset the backpackers. In 2007, 74% of international visitors to Byron were young backpackers aged between 15-35 years. Fortunately for party animals, tourist products like iconic

festivals and events are in. It’s an ambitious plan but offers no silver bullets or quick fixes. Consultation is the panacea used to reconcile the competing needs of local residents, tourists and business operators. Tourist induced problems of overloaded infrastructure, transport gridlock, housing affordability, health and safety issues, environmental protection and development standards are no closer to being resolved. Establishing a committee

and employing a tourism officer to implement the marketing strategy will no doubt appeal to the tourism industry. Inevitably the community, environmental organisations and government agencies will have to find the funds to develop more plans and strategies, to build the infrastructure and protect the environment and our communities from the impact of tourism. Byron Shire Draft Tourism Plan is on public exhibition until October 24. RTA13260-BSE

met at Bangalow Bowls Club and did little to rectify their so-called situation of ‘getting out in the community and listening to the people’. Rather, they met privately in the furthest reaches of the auditorium and shared a private meal, listened to each other’s mass debations, and clapped appropriately. Do we hear the thundering roar of the approaching trains any louder now? Please! If you have been elected onto the local council to represent your fellow residents, could you at the very least find out what the people who are paying for it actually want and need? We’ve never had a local train service, light, medium or heavy. Would a few subsidised (by whom?) rail fares ever give back the multi-millions to us, the taxpayers and already over-burdened public, what we would have to provide so a very small minority might benefit? And I say ‘might’ very ardently. Can any potential rail users please speak up so we know who you are? Do you really believe the rest of us taxpayers should pay tens, possibly hundreds, of millions of dollars, to assist the very few, when we could buy you a car for just a few thousand? Perhaps a nice bike for a few hundred? Or do you really think that you’d prefer running to someone else’s timetables? (I hate to say what might be perceived as ‘the racist obvious’, but at least the original locals from Lismore would find an easier means of moving between Lismore and Byron without having to hitch). TOOT: Get off our tracks. Pave them over and I’d be the first to inhale the bitumen fumes as they are setting – still got to be better than sharing the bleeding roads with the BUMs (Besotted Unthinking Motorists) that Mr Cameron labels everyone else (like me) who uses the roads.

Articles Lou Beaumont catches up with renowned Australian artist Peter Powditch

Secretive painter finds a vision in the bush

R

enowned artist Peter Powditch AM is having his first solo exhibition in the area since moving to Byron Shire in 2000. The recent body of work reflects this move to the North Coast in a selection of landscapes and other smaller â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;flowerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; pieces made from collected objects. Those familiar with Powditch may notice that the exhibited body of work has become more subtle and secretive, perhaps a bit like the artist himself. Immersed in the Sydney art scene since the 1960s as both respected artist and teacher, Powditch consciously kept a low profile in the art community here since his move to the Shire â&#x20AC;&#x201C; admittedly a little wary of the small community at first. Having called Murwillumbah, Sawtell, Tamworth, Cootamundra and Taree home as a child, Powditch was more than aware of the claustrophobic effect the close communities had on him and was a â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;bit frightenedâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; that Byron might be the same. To his relief, it wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t. â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;My son, [artist James Powditch], is the only one of us still living in Sydney. But my three daughters, Petra, Beth

ditch says he received a lot of Passmore through the filter of Olsen. Passmore, who according to Powditch was different to different people, was another teacher who was â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;very helpful to meâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;. â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Passmore was a brutal teacher. His teaching technique was abrupt to the point where he was known to use one single big black line through someoneâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s work by way of critique. He often wandered around the studio and would peer over my shoulder and say, â&#x20AC;&#x153;What are you doing?â&#x20AC;?, then wander off leaving me to wonder exactly that! To this day I find myself walking around my studio asking myself that same question. He always wanted you to think for yourself and you did learn to become your own critic.â&#x20AC;&#x2122;

gor and Harry Williamson in becoming a Shire resident. McGregor, Williamson and Powditch all met in the late 1960s at the Windsor Castle pub in Sydney and became firm friends and also fellow teachers at the Sydney College of Arts. Powditch says that during his teaching years at the college, where he lectured in visual communications as well as painting, he had the full and unconditional support of McGregor and Williamson. With this support the college gave Powditch full freedom to teach his way to vast classes of students.

T

eaching at SCA followed employ as lecturer at NSW University (graphic communication), the National Art School before that (drawing, painting and sculpture) and various Sydney high schools teaching positions prior to that. Earlier still, Powditch was a student at the NAS, but Powditch hadnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t so much as thought about art until he was eighteen as he did not study art at high school (â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;back then only dumb people did art, the smart kids did mathsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;). Despite his study at the NAS, Powditch didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t come away with a diploma. Just months away from receiving his certificate in 1963, Powditch broke away and as a member of a student collective known as â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;The Rocksâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;, he focused on producing work out of their studio in The Rocks, Sydney. Despite having artists like John Olsen, John Passmore, William Rose, Robert Klippel and Robert Hughes as tutors and mentors, the group

eventually dissolved. â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;We felt even more like students than we ever did at the NAS. There were too many teachers, it was too intense and we stopped expanding. But I couldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have not done it.â&#x20AC;&#x2122; During his time at the NAS, Powditch was tutored by Lyndon Dadswell, and studied privately under John Olsen, as well as John Passmore and Godfrey Miller. It was his study under Olsen that was to primarily influence Powditchâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s future employers, overruling the need for a diploma for his subsequent teaching positions. â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Olsen,â&#x20AC;&#x2122; says Powditch, â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;was a real showman. A great teacher. Two hours with Olsen would feel like five minutes. There was so much electricity in the room, it was all nearly too exciting. â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Olsen taught out of a studio in Circular Quay. When Van Gogh painted lights he would paint this halo of luminescence around themâ&#x20AC;Ś this is what Olsenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s place was like to me. Electric.â&#x20AC;&#x2122;

I

t is no wonder then that John Olsen became one of Powditchâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s greatest influences. In a dedication in a 1969 catalogue, Powditch said, â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;To Lyndon Dadswell, who taught me to see. To John Olsen, who showed me what to see.â&#x20AC;&#x2122; John Olsen taught Powditch to draw what he was drawn to, to pick up on the very essence or energy of the subject. He always pushed the passion and the spirit in art. Olsen was also a student of John Passmore, and Pow-

eter and Janthia (â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the brainsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;) will be moving soon to Bangalow. Their house in Federal has sold and with it goes his offset studio. The studio has not got a lot of room to move. It is full to the brim. There is not one inch of space unused â&#x20AC;&#x201C; an eyeful of organised chaos. With all of those works and materials around it is a wonder the artist can find anything. But he says, â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;I always know when someone has been in there other than myself. I am not observant as such but I will notice an anomaly in a pattern, or something out of place in an instant. â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;I have always been able to do that, observe odd things like that. I seem to link unusual things together to make them meaningful. I believe thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s what creativity is, thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s what poets do too. They make the link between things seemingly unconnected to make something beautiful.â&#x20AC;&#x2122; Peter Powditch was appointed Member of the Order of Australia (AM) for services to Australian art and won the Sulman prize in 1972, among other prestigious awards. Powditch is represented in international collections, the National Gallery and all state galleries and many other regional and private collections throughout Australia. He is still represented by Ray Hughes Gallery in Sydney but as his daughter Beth points out, Powditch sees himself as part of the Byron community too. He finally feels at home. â&#x2013; Peter Powditch at the Cape Gallery, 2 Lawson Street, Byron Bay. Thursday October 23-November 3. The exhibition will be opened by Craig McGregor.

The flying cane toad – living near you Margo Sutton

Indian Mynas (Acridotheres tristis)were introduced into Melbourne’s market gardens in 1862 to control insect pests in market gardens. (They failed.) They soon spread around Australia, and there are now feral colonies all around the country. The Indian Myna is intelligent and aggressive, and it successfully competes with our native species for food and nesting sites. These Mynas nest in hollows, ousting and killing native birds, even frightening off large species like kookaburras, and mammals such as sugar gliders. As 42% of Australian mammals use tree hollows, this is

a big problem. Tree hollows are scarce anyway – they are harvested for firewood and landclearing, and are ‘limblopped’ in established urban areas.When Indian Mynas colonise an area they take over the nesting and roosting sites available to hollow-dependent birds such as rosellas, lorikeets, parrots and threatened species like the Glossy Black Cockatoo and the Brown Treecreeper. The Mynas prefer to live in human habitats – suburbs, parks and disturbed rural landscapes – and are now often the predominant bird in urban areas all along the east coast from Cairns to Melbourne. Globally, Indian Mynas are

Myna was voted the Pest of Australia in the ABC WildWatch Australia survey. The native Australian Noisy Miner (Manorina melanocephala) is sometimes mistaken for the Indian Myna, but is a honeyeater, and has a light grey to grey-brown body and black crown and cheeks. It feeds mainly on nectar, fruits and occasionally insects and makes cup-shaped nests in trees. The Indian Myna has a cocoa-brown body, black head and throat, yellow around its eyes, a yellow bill and yellow legs, and eats anything it can find, mainly foraging on the ground, and nests in house eaves and tree hollows. The two have similarities – they are both noisy, bossy birds who live in social groups, they are both around the same size (22-28cm) and they both have yellow skin around their eyes. The Miner can be territorial round the garden, but it does not pose the same threat to other birds as the Indian Myna and is a protected species. The Indian Myna does major damage to soft fruit crops such as bananas and papaya and when they nest in roof spaces and other cavities can let bird mites into houses, causing asthma and hayfever and nasty bites. Tweed and Byron Shire councils have launched a joint Indian Myna control program and are calling for community cooperation. ‘We need your help to find where the Indian Mynas roost at night,’ says Council’s Indian Myna Project officer Pamela Gray. ‘They sleep in groups at night. Roosts can be identified by looking for groups of Mynas just before dusk. These groups can vary in size from

just a few, to many hundreds of birds. Typical roost sites include dense trees, palms and sometimes buildings. If you regularly see Indian Mynas at near dusk then you are probably near a night-time roost site. ‘We need to undertake monthly counts at known roosting sites, as this will allow us to measure the success or otherwise of applied control methods, and we really need the help of the community to do this,’ explained Pamela. ‘This is the first step in Council’s new Indian Myna control program. Once we have identified roosts and have done a population count, we will call for people who want to undertake trapping the birds. We will provide volunteers with any training necessary.’ In the past, Council has asked for help in reporting sightings of this pest bird and these reports have been invaluable in the development of the Indian Myna control program, and Byron and Tweed councils thanks all those who have taken part. ‘Right now we are specifically looking for reports of night-time roosting sights,’ Pamela said. Please discuss control options and techniques with the control officer before trying to get rid of the the birds. Mynas learn very quickly – one failed attempt to trap or shoot them will teach the whole flock to avoid traps or shooters. If you know of any nighttime roosting sites (or if you think you live near one), or if you are interested in helping with Indian Myna monitoring, please contact the Tweed and Byron Shire Council’s Indian Myna Project Officer 6670 2778 or email indianmyna@tweed.nsw.gov.au.

Southern Cross University has received $380,000 funding for a prestigious research fellowship in the latest round of Australian Research Council grants. The Queen Elizabeth II Fellowship has been awarded to the university to support a research project by Dr Andrew Rose to develop a new approach to explain the behaviour of chemical reactions in soils, sediments and waters. The work will be done through Southern Cross GeoScience, a new research centre of the University. Professor Leigh Sullivan, director of the Southern Cross University GeoScience research centre, said the funding would lead to a much-improved understanding of the chemistry of the environment and our understanding of critical issues such as ocean acidification, nanotechnology and environmental con-

tamination. ‘This project is about developing a new paradigm for understanding the chemistry of what happens in soils, sediments and waters. It’s aimed at deriving a better understanding of the fundamental behaviour of natural environments. ‘This covers all sorts of problems ranging from soil degradation and environmental contamination through to climate change.’ Professor Richard Bush, codirector of GeoScience, said, ‘Southern Cross GeoScience is a leading international centre in environmental research and Dr Rose was attracted to Southern Cross University to join this team. Dr Rose’s research… promises to provide a new understanding of the chemistry that will be needed to answer some our most pressing environmental problems.’ www.echo.net.au


Articles Mick O’Regan outlines the importance of Chris Masters’ work

Dark times in the Sunshine State

T

he chance to speak to Chris Masters about investigative journalism is not one to let slip by. As a TV reporter with the ABC TV Four Corners program, Masters has truly lived up to fellow journo Finley Peter Dunne’s maxim about ‘comforting the afflicted and afflicting the comfortable’. Admittedly, Mr Dunne was referring to the job of a newspaper, but you know what I mean. Through a relentless curiosity and a keen sense of justice Masters has taken on some of the hardest tasks in contemporary journalism, and run up against some of the toughest opponents and their pitbull lawyers. He’s won some and lost some along the way. But he’s never backed away from a fight and has always proceeded on the basis of hard evidence and even harder questions. Perhaps his defining moment came in 1987, when a report on police corruption in Queensland lit a fuse on a social and political time bomb. It’s fair to say that in the 1970s and 80s many Australians considered Queensland with a mixture of bewilderment and apprehension. An uneducated political hillbilly ran a State where corrupt police, dubious electoral boundaries and inherent suspicion of ‘southerners’ seemed hardwired into the general mindset. A memorable Patrick Cook cartoon of the period showed a tourist sign emblazoned with a large policeman greeting visitors with the cheery slogan, ‘Welcome to Queensland, keep your hands above your head!’ Viewed from anywhere south of Tweed Heads, the Sunshine State was in the hands of a mob of political maniacs holding some fabulous weather to ransom. It was Bjelke-Petersen Land, a theme park for right wing ideas and a frontier where everything seemed to play out differently. For years it was the butt of many a snide remark in Sydney, Melbourne and beyond. But change, big change, was coming. In May 1987, Masters’ Four Corners report, The Moonlight State, effectively blew the lid on the hidden world of police corruption in Queensland. The program detailed how the thin blue line had become entangled in complex connections between police, prostitutes and drug dealers. It shone a forensic torch into parts of Queensland where the fabled sunshine didn’t reach, and set in train events which would culminate in the Fitzgerald Inquiry.

Investigative journalist Chris Masters.

The rest, as they say, is history. Except, not quite…. The Moonlight State provoked a furious response from some of the people it exposed, who then sued the program, effectively tethering Masters to the law courts for the next thirteen years. It’s a long time by any mea-

bulent events of the late 1980s and the role of his groundbreaking Four Corners report. (Titled Moonlight Reflections, it appears in the Griffith REVIEW’s Hidden Queensland edition.) In the article Masters ponders why his program made such a profound impression,

An uneducated political hillbilly ran a State where corrupt police, dubious electoral boundaries and inherent suspicion of ‘southerners’ seemed hardwired into the general mindset. A memorable Patrick Cook cartoon of the period showed a tourist sign emblazoned with a large policeman greeting visitors with the cheery slogan, ‘Welcome to Queensland, keep your hands above your head!’ Viewed from anywhere south of Tweed Heads, the Sunshine State was in the hands of a mob of political maniacs holding some fabulous weather to ransom. It was BjelkePetersen Land, a theme park for right wing ideas and a frontier where everything seemed to play out differently. For years it was the butt of many a snide remark in Sydney, Melbourne and beyond. sure, but especially so, I imagine, when you’re embroiled in a series of defamation suits and legal threats. Masters sums it up by referring to this period as ‘death by a thousand courts’. For years afterwards he would wonder, ‘whether an angry posse of police and lawyers was still on my tail’. Twenty years on and in view of such a marked turnaround in Queensland’s fortune, Chris Masters was asked by Griffith REVIEW to write an essay, reflecting on the tur-

when other attempts at media investigation languished. He tracks the careers of the major players, Bjelke-Petersen, Russell Hinze and Terry Lewis, and tries to fathom how the political culture of Queensland developed. Importantly, Masters also acknowledges the powerful processes established by Fitzgerald and how the Queensland experience became a template for subsequent investigations into police corruption in other states. As he told me

in a recent phone conversation, ‘We need to remember the upheaval in Queensland prompted by the Fitzgerald Inquiry into police corruption had significant ongoing effects in other jurisdictions. ‘In the years following Tony Fitzgerald’s ground-breaking report, police practices in NSW and WA especially came under intense scrutiny. It’s all too easy to forget that only twenty years ago, corrupt behaviour was almost endemic to certain areas of police work. ‘To a large degree the changes in the general public’s understanding of the problem emerged from the investigation in Queensland in the 1980s.’ I lived in Brisbane from 1970 until 1984. As a university student during the late 70s I was among the smallest of fringe players in the extraordinary events that shook the city and the state to its political foundations. It was an amazing time to be a student: unlawful protest marches, mass arrests, busloads of country coppers clogging the streets, inspiring oratory from Dan O’Neill and the late Senator George Georges. It all made for a spectacular entree to university life. But someone had to tie all the threads together, to make the case against the corrupt officials who were strangling any democratic impulse they could get their legislative hands around. Radical radio stations like 4ZZZ (of blessed memory) and occasional renegade publications kept the converted up to speed, but what needed to happen was what Chris Masters did – to put the details of corruption in front of the mainstream and show a national audience what was going on in the Sunshine State. So for me the chance to have a chat with a man who played a part in changing not only the reality, but also the perception, of Queensland is something to savour. I hope that lots of people in Byron Shire will share my enthusiasm by coming along to the Byron Bay Community Centre on Sunday November 2 to see one of the legends of Australian journalism answering questions, rather than asking them. The Northern Rivers Writers Centre in conjunction with Griffith REVIEW, present Chris Masters in conversation with Radio National’s Mick O’Regan at the Byron Bay Community Centre on Sunday November 2 at 6.00pm. Tickets are $25 from Byron Community & Cultural Centre, 6685 6807.

Rous Water also offers a rebate for changing single flush toilets over to dual flush, given that toilet flushing is a significant water use in every home. Home retrofits of shower heads and tap aerators are also available through the Enviro Saver program.

All year-round, Rous Water also provides a range of education programs for children and adults of all ages and is able to come and talk to your club or group about water management and/or conservation’. Rous Water will be showcasing the full range of incentives and education programs that

are on offer this week at the North Coast National Show’s Sustainable Living Expo. Members of the public will be asked for their ideas about future water saving initiatives – things that you think Rous Water and local councils could consider to conserve water.

he last debate is done. The collective sigh of relief can be heard around the nation, maybe the world. Obama won. He didn’t have to try hard because his arrogant, over-bearing, condescending and downright un-American opponent grates like a fingernail going down a blackboard. John McCain’s eyes said it all. Like a cornered animal – eyes constantly darting back and forth, he looked like a man on speed waiting to pounce on his adversary. Or else he smirked. Senator McCain’s attempts to divert the national debate to the personal with insults, accusations and lies was not the act of a statesman. He sounded more like a man who believes he is born to rule. The black man in front of him has no right to the Presidency and Americans should know this. In the last debate, McCain referred to Senator Obama as ‘that one’ which kind of summed up the contempt which is so obvious when he speaks. Obama ducked a question about whether he thought Sarah Palin would make a good vice president. Shame. He had major ammunition

in the editorial published this week in the Anchorage Daily News which wasted no words in condemning the Governor and her failure to acknowledge the report of the investigation as to whether she had interfered in due process to get her ex brother-in-law – an Alaskan trooper – sacked. Here is a direct quote from the editorial. ‘Sarah Palin’s reaction to the Legislature’s Troopergate report is an embarrassment to Alaskans and the nation. ‘She claims the report “vindicates” her. She said that the investigation found “no unlawful or unethical activity on my part.” ‘Her response is either astoundingly ignorant or downright Orwellian. ‘Page 8, Finding Number One of the report says: “I find that Governor Sarah Palin abused her power by violating Alaska Statute 39.52.110(a) of the Alaska Executive Branch Ethics Act.” ‘In plain English, she did something “unlawful.” She broke the state ethics law. ‘Perhaps Gov. Palin has been too busy to actually read the Troopergate report. Perhaps she is relying on briefings from McCain campaign

spinmeisters.’ Indeed. The latest poll in the LA Times shows that support for McCain has dropped considerably because of the Sarah Palin factor. Sarah Palin is America’s

Pauline Hanson. The most worrying aspect of her presence and campaign is the constituency she attracts – the ugly, ignorant mob. John McCain is a desperate man. He has no solutions to the economic crisis and his vice president is such an insult to the thinking American that even Republicans are deserting to the Obama camp. As the Dow continues its dive to disaster, the US public is denied any real discussion as to the causes of the massive depression facing America. While the Dow is a minute

by minute indicator of the collapse of the stock market, the real figures are not being discussed. Like the exponentially growing number of jobless people. And the fact that unemployment benefits only last 39 weeks. So the predictions of six million more mortgage foreclosures are probably on the conservative side as noone has taken into account how much unemployment will accompany the collapsing economy. Although two economic experts who were recently awarded the Nobel Prize in economics have pointed the finger at globalisation as being one of the major factors in the massive economic downturn, neither McCain nor Obama will raise the issue. Those who experienced the Great Depression never had to deal with free trade issues. No-one can predict the ramifications of globalisation in this climate but the extent of the money crisis gives a clue. Obama keeps saying the solution to the US economic crisis lies with the American people. But the out-sourcing of jobs to third world countries, allowing the agricultural and manufacturing industries to be taken over by oligopolies, has had a disastrous impact which will not be easily remedied. Every country which ratified the World Trade Organisation ceded sovereignity to the WTO, including Australia. In each of the ratifying countries, the steady destruction of national agricultural and

manufacturing industries has accompanied globalisation. Nations are now no longer independent. In the midst of the US crisis, the IUCN (International Union for the Conservation of Nature) held a conference in Barcelona. Scientists agreed that the environmental crisis facing the planet is more serious than the current financial crisis. In a recent interview, George Soros, the financial wizard who ‘owns’ the Democrat Party, spoke at length about global warming and the urgent need to address the environmental crisis. If the Democrats win the House and Senate – and it looks like they will – there is hope that, finally, the US government will get real about climate change. The mainstream media is predicting a win for Obama. But longtime watchers of US politics maintain anything could happen. Only one thing is certain. The Dow will continue its downward dive and recession/ depression in the US is just around the corner. Sooner or later, the governments of the world will have to change course. Just how much damage will be inflicted on the public remains to be seen. But Americans are not happy with their banks being nationalised and the heartland of capitalism becoming more like communist Russia each day. Whether the world’s only superpower will lead us out of the mess or into the morass remains to be seen.

The Byron Bay Aloha Project Mookx

If I mention Tamworth you will immediately think ‘Country Music’. In a dying cattle farming district some decades back, they decided to adopt the ‘Nashville of Australia’ title and took Country Music on as an ongoing association with their town. The rest is history. In a similar vein, the Byron Bay Aloha Project is an idea which sprang from a group of people returning recently from Hawaii, totally impressed with the spirit of welcome, love and friendship (Aloha) that pervades throughout the Hawaiian societal landscape. To some extent, that same vibe already exists here in the Shire and beyond at a community level. Basically the challenge here is to highlight, underline and publicise this vibe so that by association it is seen as a feature of this area alongside the sun, surf, whale-watching and festivalising that we’re already famous for, thereby

attracting new tourists who have the word ‘spirit’ as part of their holiday agenda. So the immediate result of this will be to multiply the type of tourists who comes here, and simultaneously provide an increasing portion of the tourist dollar to the ‘Alternative Industry’, the size and variety of which can be gauged by a quick perusal of the Echo classifieds. To some extent it could be seen as the formation of an alternative Chamber of Commerce, which rather than competing with existing commercial interests will add to the tourism magnetic field and draw more high-quality visitors to our backyard. As part of the strategy, a plan is already under way to feature Byron Shire in an amazing photographic/text/music exhibition, firstly in Hawaii then mainland USA. The exhibition will pay homage to the original native caretakers of the area, move through the industrial, timber-cutting, whaling, sand-

mining exploitive era to the present day of healing holidays and green sustainability. Many of the elements of this show are already in place, however more photos of alternative activities will be very welcome at this formative stage as well as contributions that feature “green” issues, home-birth, alternative technologies and therapies, workshops etc, marches and demonstrations, settlement and home-building, permaculture, and any other appropriate happenings or activities that would add to the pictorial display. So if you’re a media person, artist, writer, IT expert, managerial or publicity aficionado, green giant or other ‘alternative’ operator who would like to contribute to this idea, or if you have a relevant photo or other media gem, please contact Mookx c/o PO Box 562 Byron Bay 2481 with any hard copy, or mookx@mookx.com with digital input or other relevant material or enquiry. www.echo.net.au

I know how hard he was working for it all his life so he deserves it.’ Three months later, Leko began working with Vladimir Kramnik to defeat Anand.

When I get on the phone to Tex I’m gushing about how much I love his new album: Tex Perkins and his Ladyboyz: Number 1’s and Number 2’s. He snorts back in acknowledgement: ‘you’re our target audience, ladies over 35.’ This sinister reincarnation of some of the worst hits of AM radio is a work of magic. For Tex, dodgy covers are the only way to go. ‘It’s always been something I have done through my career – dodgy ironic versions of questionable songs. I see it as my duty to shine a brighter light on these lyrics.’ And the lyrics are extraordinary. I mean I know them, I could sing along, but I don’t think I’ve ever really stopped and listened. Dr Hook is restraining order material. Tex was similarly astounded. ‘They’re singing, when you’re body’s had too much of me and she’s on the floor… he knows she’s on the floor unconscious and he says, look I am going to have another line and give you another go!’ ‘Dr Hook had a few suss concepts for songs, like when you are in love with a beautiful woman you watch your friend, why? Because they try and shag your friends, this guy is wracked with jealousy he can’t enjoy his beautiful woman!’ One of the stunning moments is a falsetto by Jimmy Barnes. It’s beautiful and screech free. Tex does

the dark male baritone on You Make me Feel Brand New. ‘It’s an absolute coup to have Barnesy – it’s the first time his falsetto has ever been recorded, it’s worth hearing – he’s known as a screamer and a belter but he has complete control over his vocal, he’s a true craftsman, he has been really supportive of the whole project, he even appeared in the infomercial.’ The whole Ladyboyz project was white shoe from the get go. Tex went all the way. I’m talking white suit. Smoke machine and an infomercial that kicks arse. ‘We didn’t leave any stone unturned – there are a few things that didn’t happen – we

were going to have our own perfume ‘Scent of a Lady Boy’. So instead we have ladyboy chapsticks.’ Making a tongue in cheek album isn’t as easy as it looks. It still has to stand up as an album. ‘The album isn’t just about going for laughs it had to have a balance – it has to stand up as music as well, taking away the laughs I am proud of what I have done with songs, I think we have polished turds, they say you can’t but I think we have, we have polished 18 turds – you know what, now I think these songs are grateful – I think we have rescued them, we are like DOCS, coming in and rescuing mistreated, neglected and

abused songs. We have given them a new home and a new life. It must feel good to be out of the clutches of Dr Hook and Toto.’ So with all the shitty songs out there, how do you choose just 18? ‘The most difficult thing was stopping. We had an avalanche of ideas, our strike rate was ridiculous, we did eight songs a day. I’d have a list, we’d dial it up on the internet, we’d do a version – print out the lyrics, we actually recorded 31 songs and some of these songs will appear in the live show like The Lord’s Prayer and we are thinking of releasing the double A side for the Christian market, with My Sweet Lord on the other side.’

‘When Universal suggested a covers album I was offended because I was working on a solo album at the time. I thought I’ll give you a covers album you pricks and I sent through I’m Not In Love, and they said yeah do it.’ Tex Perkins and his Ladyboyz are joined by special guest vocalists at all of the shows and will perform at casinos around the country! It really is a boy band! They perform at Twin Towns at Tweed Heads on Saturday November 1. It’s gonna be a great show. I wouldn’t miss it. Tickets via phone 1800 014 014 or www. twintowns.com.au

Are we there yet?

Mandy Nolan

Going on holidays with my kids is like starring in my very own National Lampoon movie. It’s always an adventure. (In retrospect.) I worked all through the kids’ school holidays so I know the sting of mother’s guilt as surely as I know the pinch of an uncomfortable shoe. After years of wear I am sure that I have developed a guilt bunion. It’s irritated and causes pain every time I can’t attend an assembly or a school sports day or forget to make them lunch. I know the horror of the working mother – it is a legacy of endless toil. To make up for leaving the kids in the car during the school holidays I decided to take them on a trip to Sydney – yay! There’s nothing that cements family harmony more than ten hours in a confined space. I remember doing it as a kid. Pre-airconditioning, kids would stick like unpricked sausages to the vinyl seats as hot wind blew in the windows of the Kingswood and together we’d sing every parent’s favourite mantra ‘Are We There Yet?’ First we fight for a radio station. The kids win. I am forced to listen to pop FM. The next fight is about the front seat. We haven’t left the driveway yet. Everybody wants to sit in the front seat. I am tempted to let them and then get in the back and have a nice sleep. After tears and a biting episode we decide on a roster system which the kids monitor to the minute. In a Holden Commodore stationwagon the size of a small truck, the front seat isn’t even as comfortable as the back. It is about status. I only make it to Coffs. The farting, fighting and fussing do my head in. We book into Opal Cove – it’s big and kid friendly and the kids love it except one of them decides to develop a phobia about lifts and won’t get in. Never mind. It’s a big

foyer. While I have a mini-recovery nap the kids attack the mini-bar. Mistaking it for the family fridge they manage to work their way through everything except the beer. (They always prefer vodka, must be because that’s what I drank when I was pregnant). In 20 minutes they’ve clocked up enough damage on the mini-bar to sink the economy of a third world country. I hate mini-bars. Why do they fill it with sugar? Why don’t they put health food in there, and then no-one would touch the bloody thing. The kids insist on swimming in the resort pool. It’s 7.30pm. It’s raining and it’s cold. But they’re on holidays. Why not. I stand in the drizzle and watch them frolic. We are definitely almost having fun now. Day two back on the road. After a $350 one night cash haemorrhage at reception I repack the car. It smells like an alcoholic. I wonder which one of my kids has been drinking. I search for the suspect: a KFC refresher towel, but find half a fresh carrot and orange juice spilled onto the floor, hidden by the car mat and a couple of pillows. It has already started fermenting. By evening we should have our own source of alco-pops. It’s a mission to clean it up. I ask my son why he didn’t tell me.… didn’t you think I’d notice? He told me he was planning on throwing out the mat and the pillows and to continue his secret mission. Don’t you think I’d notice the sudden disappearance of half the luggage? With eight hours of driving ahead of us I decided to pick my battles, and it’s not a good start to commence a day’s drive with a lecture on being responsible. Although, it’s tempting, and frankly I could do with hearing it myself. It’s a relief to be back on the road. The kids garner some amusement from imagining living in

the shitty roadside shacks along the highway. We stop at a servo and my daughter refuses to use their toilet. ‘Let’s get out, Mum, it’s like Wolf Creek’. ‘You haven’t seen Wolf Creek.’ ‘No, but I’ve seen the cover.’ She’s right. When we drove out I’m sure I saw John Jarratt at the pump. We look for a lunch spot. We are tempted by the Restaurant at Kew, called, you guessed it: Far Kew. Instead we drive through to Taree and find a pub for lunch on the river. It’s very pleasant although it’s hard to digest your food. No-one in the beer garden had a neck. The fights about pillow space start. Ipods run out of charge. There is no radio range except country stations that play music from the 50s. We are forced to chat. Finally we are in NOVA range, an hour or two outside of Sydney. I check my watch. I have timed it perfectly. At this rate we should be hitting Sydney at peak hour! Yes, an extra two hours in traffic! Being a country kid myself I still remember the excitement of driving into a city, the thrill that high density living gives: the feeling that this is a place where something is happening all of the time. The kids experience the same thrill but in the bumper to bumper traffic it wears off. Someone has a headache. No, two of them have a headache. Someone needs the toilet. I won’t stop. I can’t stop. I make it across the bridge, gliding across six lanes of traffic to the welcome of city beeps. We hit Newtown, negotiating streets that are so tightly packed with parked cars I don’t know how anyone keeps their duco. A kindly old woman driving in the other direction tries to push past me but I can’t move, she’s forced to back up. She winds down her window and shouts ‘moron!’ Ah, welcome to Sydney. Let the games begin.

The Blue Birdy Blip Last Wednesday night saw The Blue Birdy at Liquid host one of the best funk bands in the world – The Headhunters. Due to a mishap by this department (sorry Blue Birdians!) the editorial didn’t make it, but thankfully the night was packed and those who were there witnessed amazing music. The band set the standard in modern funk with a seminal recording with Herbie Hancock, and stand alongside such huge names as ‘The Meters’ and ‘Booker T and the MG’s’. Well done to Liquid and The Blue Birdy for providing such a high standard of groove. This week is again worth a peak. Misinterprotato are from Brisbane and skillfully blend dense, exciting improvisations and delicate atmospherics, conjuring up sounds of modern jazz, ambient music, avant garde rock, free improvisation and contemporary classical music. Come check it out at the Blue Birdy at Liquid. Also this week at Liquid… Thursday is Members night, Friday Electro Funk with DJ Goodie, DJ Ego, DJ Bulli and Saturday is House of Now: Dave Basek featuring Vanessa Baker, Kaptain Kaine and DJ Dr Brian.

Some may have seen her as the violinist in Lothlorien on several tours. Sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s definitely worth catching. Ms Swanâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s music is intoxicating. Mei Lai plays The Mullum Music Festival on Sunday November 23. Check the website for a comprehensive program: www.mullummusicfestival. com and for ticketing information. Tickets can also be purchased â&#x20AC;&#x201C; 02 8250 1102.

Big Gig Raise Money for Breast Cancer This month’s BIG GIG at the Ballina RSL is a very special occasion. The girls are hosting a Girl’s Night In to raise money for Breast Cancer research and recovery. It’s a special treat when songwriter, actor, comedian, guitarist and wit slinger Geraldine Quinn flaunts her startling dark talent for black humour and rock styling. A self taught singer songwriter and guitarist before she was 20, Quinn had performed at The Last Laugh and The World Congress Centre. In the UK and Melbourne her collaborators/guest appearances include Tim Minchin, Eddie Perfect and the Scared LIttle Weird Guys. She was invited to perform at the Adelaide Cabaret Festival in 2006 and her pop tribute guest show The Butterfly Affair sold out on her return from Edinburgh Fringe where she was chosen for both the David Letterman Showcase and Mervyn Stutter’s Pick of the Fringe. Since then she has had full houses and sell-out shows in Adelaide, Melbourne and Edinburgh, where last year she won the prestigious Green Room Award for Best Emerging Cabaret Artiste. She was even inducted into the Who’s Who of Australian Women. She has international superstar written all over (although she swears it’s just texta). She possesses an astonishing voice, a wicked sense of humour and a keen intelligence. She is the Queen of Hardcore cabaret – a force to be reckoned with. She is joined by local comedian Ellen

Briggs, the Mullum Mum who made it big a few years back by bagging the QLD Raw Final trophy and then went on to become a national finalist. Mandy Nolan or moi is MC, and no doubt she’s got more than a few surprises up her sleeve, or should one say, under her skirt! So come on girls, rally together for the sisters – get a table together and have a Girl’s Night In at the Ballina RSL this Thursday October 23 at 8pm. Tix are just $5. (Please note, for the first time in two years this is NOT the last Thursday of the month - but the third!)

Super Kitty It would be true to say that Kitty Flanagan is one of the most talented standup comics in the country. Versatile, individual and alway original Kitty first found her feet on Full Frontal. It’s her acting ability that makes her such a knockout on stage, this pretty, likeable girl has the peculiar ability to morph into any being she chooses. A successful standup up comedian and TV writer/ performer in Australia, Kitty Flanagan ditched it all on an artistic whim and moved to the UK in 2001 to further her comedy career. She’s well known for sketch comedy as well as standup, Kitty has appeared in several successful TV shows both in Australia and the UK, The Micallef Show and The Sketch Show. There have also been numerous TV standup appearances, including The World Stands Up on Comedy Central in the US and after years of having her writing directed by others, Kitty recently decided she needed to be the boss of everyone and set out to direct her own work. The result is the short film Dating Ray Fenwick. Kitty has now relocated back to her home soil where she appears as a regular on ABC

Soulcollage comes to the Byron Shire! Soulcollage is an exciting and soul-satisfying process of making a set of collaged cards (like a tarot deck) using images which ‘speak’ to you personally, to help you learn more about your inner life and to access your own wisdom and guidance. It was developed by psychotherapist

Seena Frost and it has since spread around the world. Byron Shire now has a trained soulcollage facilitator, Alison Mackay, who will be running an Introduction to Soulcollage workshop on Saturday October 25 in Ocean Shores, as well as a series of Tuesday afternoons through ACE. For more details contact Alison on 6680 1884 or email alison. mackay@gmail.com.

Bulli at Liquid Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s 1986 in the Canary Islands, Spain and Darren Jackson aka BULLI is working the summer in nightclubs starting his career as a DJ. After travelling to northern Europe in the winter to work the snow season and playing clubs and parties in England he made the move to Melbourne in 1992. Bulli instigated Club Filter with business partner and DJ Rudeboy. Club Filter holds the record as Australiaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s longest-running electronic dance music night opening to crowds every Wednesday night from 1992 to 2003. International DJs and live acts played a key role in the clubâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s development. Among them were Jamminâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; Unit, Dave Angel, Colin Dale, Biochip C, Bizz OD, Ree.K, Stacey Pullen, Dave the Drummer and Joey Beltram. But just as importantly, Filter set about supporting and nurturing local live talent and DJs including Steve Law (Zen Paradox), Voiteck, Honeysmack, Andrez Bergen (Little Nobody), Liz Millar, Ollie Olsen, Scott Alert, Dee Dee (Teryaki), Slieker, Richie Rich, Andrew Till and Juju Space Jazz. When asked about the formula for such a successful underground club Darren explains, â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;At Filter our goal was to unearth Melbourneâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s undiscovered talent. At the time the party/club scene was being controlled by a small group of elitist DJs whose stranglehold we managed to break, therefore allowing diversity and creativity.â&#x20AC;&#x2122; DJ Bulli was part of electro

Nimbin Film Festival The Nimbin Film Festival â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;08 will screen over a three-day weekend, October 24, 25, and 26, at Nimbinâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s very own Bush Theatre and CafĂŠ, perched on the beautiful Mulgum creek. Highlights include The Burning Season, Black Chicks Talking, Another Shamanic Adventure in Peru and Swimming with Whales, supported by a host of local

and not so local offerings guaranteeing a splendid time for all. â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;The program includes short comedy, music clips, drama and animation, something for everyone,â&#x20AC;&#x2122; says Roy Radle, festival organiser from the Nimbin Community Technology Centre. Season tickets are available through the Nimbin CTC at $25 or at the door. Cost per session: waged $8, unwaged $5. School students and children enter by donation. Further program details are available at, www.nimbinfilms.co.cc. For further information, contact Roy Radle at Nimbin CTC on 6689 1183.

What do you do on a Monday morning? Some brave ones among us take out their brushes and paints, find their way to local artist Bernadette Curtinâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s studio and get on with it! For the last few years Bernadette, in her peaceful, poetic and

dub act â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Mandangaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; while in Melbourne and before his move to Byron Bay in 1994 where he became a household name quickly, some used to call him the ladies DJ playing underground parties as well as the unforgettable, cutting edge Beyond the Brain events in the Epi Centre. Darrenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s instigative powers produced the Milehigh Club remembered by many in the Arts Factoryâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s now demolished Cotton Club. In 2002 he went on to manage Verve (nowadays Liquid) for one year and set up the only record store catering for Byron Bayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s DJs called Spin with business partner and DJ Aeon. As far as his own productions go Bulli put his name to â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Sozo Fongâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; with D.B. Porter and â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Sugardaddyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; with Scott Harris aka DJ Captain Kaine. Q: I think it is fair to say that you were the first to play Breaks up here and I remember hearing Fat Boy Slim for the first time in one of your sets in the Carpark club. How has break beat developed from your point of view? A: â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Break beat has now spiralled off into many sub genres and continues to be influenced by many different sources which keeps it fresh and original.â&#x20AC;&#x2122; Q: Whatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s hot in your collection? A: â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;At the moment my favourite producers include Fort Knox Five, All Good Funk Alliance and Chris Joss.â&#x20AC;&#x2122; Q: What was your worst choice track in a DJ set? A: â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Dropping Fleetwood Macâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Tusk in its entirety the way Stevie Nicks intended it to be heard.â&#x20AC;&#x2122;

Q: When did you first start buying vinyl? A: â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;My first piece of vinyl was Video Killed the Radio Star by the Buggles, I was nine I think.â&#x20AC;&#x2122; Q: What parties/events excite you nowadays? A: â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;My favorite gigs are usually underground house parties because I get to push boundaries and play different tunes that I wouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t get to play in a club or an outdoor party.â&#x20AC;&#x2122; Q: What was your biggest lesson being a DJ? A: â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Not to make myself sound lame by giving interviews.â&#x20AC;&#x2122; Q: Where to next? A: â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Onwards. Bulli is also billed for the Free Creation Summer Solstice Festival in December. Bulli is turning up the funk this Friday at Liquid joining the resident DJs of â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Electro Funkâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; Goodie and DJ Ego. Fusing classic funk elements with breaks and 2008 electronica; get ready to ride the mothership.

WINSOME, Lismore Friday Underground this week has guest DJ Dan Jupiter Cassidy. Dan has been DJ-ing since 1997, held a residency at the Arts Factory, appeared as Fox & Cat at Splendour this year and has recently joined the smorgasbord of DJs at Satori.

Will Ferrell is funny in pretty much anything, but American stock car racing (Talladega Nights â&#x20AC;&#x201C; the Ballad of Ricky Bobby, NBN, Friday 8.30pm) is an incomprehensible joke outside the USA. 4.Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re Here to Help (Prime, Friday 9pm) is a popular New Zealand flick based on a famous case of tax bureaucracy running wild.

Burn After Reading Now that the dust has settled, it’s clear that the most lasting impression of Joel and Ethan Coen’s over-hyped No Country For Old Men was made by Javier Bardem’s haircut. Lifting

the conservative fold of the Academy. Though undoubtedly gifted and original, filmmakers as pleased with themselves as the brothers so blatantly are can get a wee bit tiresome, especially when they repeatedly fall short of delivering on their tantalising promises. In this we have John Malkovich quitting the CIA in a grand huff after being demoted. He harbours self-deluding plans to write a memoir while his soon to be estranged wife, Tilda Swinton, bearing a spooky resemblance to Julia Gillard, cheats on him with George Clooney, a married Lothario who plays the internet dating game. Loopy, gum chewing Pitt and Frances McDormand, needing to raise the money to pay for some cosmetic surgery, are co-workers at Hardbodies gym who attempt to blackmail FRIDAY OCT 31 6.30pm Hot Shorts Malkovich, mistakenly inc Soar + New Boots believing that the CD of his 8.15pm The Tracker jottings that has come into their possession contains top SATURDAY NOV 1 4pm Surf Classic The Innersecret government informmost Limits of Pure Fun ation.

This The Station Agent act and a murder of maniacal + short film – Derailed brutality wipe the smile off Tickets prices $10/adult $5 /child your face and hammer home the quintessentially bleak Enquiries 6684 9313 world view that underpins all of the Coens’ work. Their long time composer Carter Burwell’s music – recalling his monumental score for Fargo – sometimes feels too weighty when overlaying the irreverence, but a penchant for selling the bogus as profound is a stock in trade for many contemporary artists. Meanwhile, Malkovich exasperatedly sprays ‘what the fuck!?’ so many times that you wonder if an attempt is being made at breaking the world record for the phrase’s appearance in a script. On reflection, however, those three words may well summarise the theme of the movie, if not the Coens’ entire œuvre. Could that be part of the joke? Whatever – I thoroughly enjoyed it. ~ John Campbell a line from W B Yeats might have been clever enough to win them an Oscar but it did not automatically mean that the poet’s vision would illuminate their movie and now, with their latest curio, Brad Pitt’s fabulous Kookie coif threatens to once again steal the show. We love the Coens because they let us think we’re smart and, even better than that at street level, ‘alternative’ – notwithstanding this year’s admission into

Brideshead Revisited It would be interesting to know exactly how many people will come to this movie having seen the TV series as opposed to having read the book. Asserting that an adaptation has remained faithful to the television version does not quite cut the mustard when compared to being able to relate it to the original written word – of which, I admit, I am entirely ignorant. Wringing one’s hands for the trials and tribulations of England’s landed gentry is a bit like losing sleep over the fate of Wall Street financiers, but it remains ever fashionable and it is given deluxe treatment in this beautifully shot, exquisitely designed, maudlin potboiler. Prejudices aside though, for all of its sumptuousness, attention to detail and apparent integrity, this over-long film is critically nobbled by the fact that not one character emerges with whom you would want to spend more time than was absolutely necessary (and the feeling is mutual, for these types would brush you as soon as look at you). Charles Ryder, a chinless wonder for the ages, goes up to Oxford to study history, but he really wants to be a painter. The aspiring artist meets and is beguiled by Sebastian Flyte, a stitched-up homosexual whose overbearing, devoutly Catholic mother, Lady Marchmain, has been driving him to alcoholism. Charles becomes a regular at Brideshead, the family house, where he falls in love with Julia, Sebastian’s sister, but his atheism and her inculcated sense of gulit put the kibosh on any desire the pair might have to get up close and personal. Charles, as an intimate outsider, doesn’t do much else other than observe the Flytes as they struggle with and are consoled by the tenets of their faith. Matthew Goode is perfect as Ryder, which is a backhanded compliment at best, Ben Whishaw’s Sebastian is darker and more self-pitying than was TV’s Anthony Andrews’s interpretation, while Hayley Atwell successfully juggles the demands of being both resilient and vulnerable as Julia. Michael Gambon does an agreeably reprobate Old Man Flyte and, as his Italian mistress, how sobering it is to see that years have also caught up with the adorable Greta Scaachi. But it is Emma Thompson who towers over them all as the stony, daunting matriarch. Waugh came to Catholicism late in life and, if this is anything to go by, his religious awakening only served to underline the old truism that converts are the pits. Pretty but dismal. ~ John Campbell

And there I was feeling faintly ashamed that asparagus should make me think of sex â&#x20AC;&#x201C; when it turns out that my association is by no means original. Not so much the vegetable itself but the eating of the vegetable â&#x20AC;&#x201C; its faintly phallic tip attached to smooth shaft â&#x20AC;&#x201C; has been commented on by the likes of English food writer and chef Nigel Slater and Clarissa Dickson Wright, one half of the Two Fat Ladies; the fact that asparagus is believed to possess aphrodisiac properties is presumably due to similar observations made by countless others since about the sixteenth century. It is, otherwise, a spring vegetable so one we should be enjoying now. According to Jane Grigson, asparagus needs to be eaten the day it is picked â&#x20AC;&#x201C; although Clarissa Dickson Wright concedes that as long as it is within eight hours of being picked it is worthy of consumption. I wonder how many people have had the luxury of asparagus that spectacularly fresh? As, like most vegetables nowadays, it is available all year round, I suspect not a lot â&#x20AC;&#x201C; and freely confess that, occasionally, my urge for asparagus is so great that I will purchase an out-of-season imported bunch from a supermarket, in order to appease it. That I even enjoy this inferior product makes a slight mockery of the disdain I feel toward that abomination which is tinned asparagus. Tinned asparagus must surely, however, be blamed for the antipathy many people felt toward this glorious vegetable when, certainly in Australia, it was the closest one could get to the real thing for a long time. One source cites it as a member of the Lily family; it is a perennial garden plant and out of 300 varieties noted, only 20 are edible. The green, of course, is the one with which we are most familiar, but there is also the white (grown under soil to block chlorophyll production) and the purple â&#x20AC;&#x201C; which apparently has a fruitier flavour but the several times I have (out of season) bought then cooked it I have not noticed a discernible difference â&#x20AC;&#x201C; and to be sure felt faintly cheated by the fact that, upon cooking, the purple reverted to the customary green. White asparagus

is more expensive because its production is labour-intensive. There is also wild asparagus, to which in â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;An Omelette and a Glass of Wineâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; Elizabeth David alludes as being part of a risotto she once tasted in Venice. Or so she thought. The â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;handsome and elegantâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; couple at the next table told her that the green vegetable in question was wild asparagus and yet after exhaustive research she learned that it had been wild hop-shoots, whose flavour is similar. Sprue, apparently, resembles wild asparagus â&#x20AC;&#x201C; sprue being that exceptionally skinny asparagus that looks like grass. It is exceedingly good for you, being low in calories and sodium and devoid of fat and cholesterol. Its diuretic properties explain its use throughout history as a medicine as well. And while it is complemented beautifully by rich ingredients like butter and cheese and cream and eggs and olive oil, it is also utterly luscious simply steamed and finished with a squeeze of citrus and a little salt and pepper. In fact, the simpler ways with asparagus are usually the best. â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;There are few nicer lunchesâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;, writes Jane Grigson, â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;than asparagus, the new potatoes that shared their pan, and eggs mollet (soft boiled), with melted butter and home-made bread. Add a glass of white Loire wine...â&#x20AC;&#x2122; Nigel Slater in Real Food says that â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;My cat and I often share a plate of asparagus... just the two of us with no one to tut at such apparent decadence. There is something serene about a dozen fat green and mauve spears on a large white plate...â&#x20AC;&#x2122; One step up from such simplicity is this heavenly recipe from Parma, in Italy: ASPARAGI ALLA PARMIGIANA 900 gr. asparagus 50 gr. freshly grated Parmesan cheese 75 gr. unsalted butter Salt Trim the washed asparagus spears and steam or boil until thoroughly cooked (not crunchy). Transfer to an ovenproof dish and sprinkle with some of the cheese while you heat the grill. Melt butter and pour over asparagus. Sprinkle with remaining cheese and a little salt, then place under the grill for several minutes or until a light golden crust forms.

Mullumbimy hockey alive and well

Lightouse run a winner Sunday dawned a perfect day for any outdoor activity and what more perfect way to start the day than a brisk run or walk up to the lighthouse. The 7am start at the Byron Surf Club saw over 250 competitors strap on computerised time tags and cross the line in the second annual Byron Lighthouse Run and Walk to

raise fund to support the New South Wales Cancer Council. Runners and walkers both serious and leisurely, headed east in the event which organiser Lisa Parkes hopes will evenetually play host to thousands of competitors. Winners on the day were Jackson Elliott in a time of 35.01, Will Smith in 36.37 and

Blayne Arnold in 37.15. The women were very well represented with times of 40.52 for first home Maree Stephenson, Lisa Skinner 42.09 and Delta Kay with 43.12 and of course the other winner was the Cancer Council with over $15,000 raised for research into a cure for the disease.

Off and away, runners head out to the lighthouse, eventual winner Jackson Elliott pictured here in the centre with blue shorts. Photo Tree Faerie

The Mullumbimby Pythons recently won the 2nd Division Grand Final in the Tweed Border Hockey Association, held at the Murwillumbah Hockey Grounds. The win is the cherry on the icing of not one, but two years as the undefeated season premiers. Not a small feat at the season has 24 matches – this means that including semis and finals, the team has had over 50 wins in a row. The team once again played the Waratahs, but the game was not the cake walk that it was in 2007 as the team had to work hard against a well drilled Waratah team. In very hot conditions and after three lots of extra time the score line remained at nail biting 0-0, at last sending the game to penalty strokes which ended up resulting in a 3-1 score for the Pythons. Even though the Pythons, whose age span is 18-57, may have been the only Mullum Grand Finalists, there is great Club pride in the achievement of both the Taipans Division 1 women and men teams reaching the final and semi final respectively as well as the Divi-

sion 3 men who were pipped at the post for a semi final spot and the Cobras women who built every week through the competition but left their semi final run a bit late. As an added challenge to the end of the hockey season, a large contingent of the Pythons group will join forces in November with other members of the Tweed Border teams to compete as the ‘Hot Shots’ in the Pan Pacific Masters Games to be held on

the Gold Coast, an event that they have had success at in the past. The club is looking forward to its 2009 season and welcomes old and new players as well as novices to come along. For more information about the the Pythons phone Julie on 0414 841 816 and for info about the Pan Pac Masters which runs from November 1-9, visit their website at: www.mastersgames.com.au.

NCAS needs junior netballers Beach swim for Pony Club North Coast Academy of Sport (NCAS) is seeking talented junior netballers to trial for its Kempsey Macleay RSL Club 2008-09 NCAS Netball squad. To attend the trials and to be eligible to be chosen in the 2008-09 NCAS Netball squad, athletes must be turning 15, 16, 17 or 18 years in 2009, be a resident on the North Coast and be a current member of a netball association underpinning NCAS. Applicants must have played competitive club netball and hopefully have representative experience in school or association netball and must also be physically fit to play and undertake an intensive development netball program. Underpinning the Academy program is the support by regional associations of Ballina, Brunswick-Byron, Bellingen, Casino, Coffs Harbour, Grafton, Hastings, Kyogle, Lismore district, Lower Clarence, Macleay, Murwillumbah, Nambucca Valley and Woolgoolga. Trialists must be a member of one of these associations. Around 20-24 athletes aged 15-18 years will be selected based on trials held at Southern Cross University in Lismore on Saturday 25th and Sunday 26th October 2008. Once the final squad is selected, athletes will receive high-level skills coaching, and education sessions in sport psychology, sports medicine,

sports nutrition, time management and public speaking. Kempsey Macleay RSL Club became naming rights sponsors of the NCAS Netball program in July 2006. Their support forms part of Clubs NSW’s state wide commitment to Community Development Support Expenditure legislation.

NCAS provides regionally based talent identification and development programs in 14 sports including basketball, BMX, canoe sprint, cycling, hockey, lawn bowls, rowing, rugby, sailing, softball, surf life saving, tennis and triathlon.

Pony Club is a voluntary youth organisation which exists to promote the physical, mental and spiritual development of young people, encouraging in them an awareness of sportsmanship and citizenship, assisting them to gain knowledge and become proficient in their chosen sport. Pony Club differs from other youth movements because the horse is used as the main centre of interest around which to cultivate strenght of character, self discipline while

enjoying and taking part in equestrian sports. Ages of participants range from 8 to25. Because of this age range, older Pony Clubbers are able to provide assistance to younger members. The Mullumbimby Pony Club enjoyed an amazing club season this year, enjoying an exciting calendar of events with the Gymkhanas Championships and the Zone 15 Jamboree and rally days with special events like their beach ride and Mounted Games day.

Money donated from the Woolworths Community Grants program will be used to improve the club’s showjumping equipment with breakaway cups, which have a much greater level of safety, which is so very important when working with children. For more information about the Mullumbimby Pony Club phone 6680 5185 and for info about Pony Club in general visit: www.ponyclubaustralia. com.au www.echo.net.au

Tom Foolery shows his best side at the Rugby 7s Eve Jeffery

In what legend says was a desperate attempt to appear popular, Stu Mackall started the Rugby Sevens nineteen years ago, and the event has grown into an internationally renowned end of year pilgrimage for Rugby players of all skill levels and backgrounds. Hosted by the Byron Bay Rugby Club, the Sevens sees several international sides, the most notable being those from Fiji and New Zealand, take on some of Australia’s best developing talent and sides representing the best of club rugby from Sydney and Brisbane. This year’s sevens were held in perfect conditions on the weekend at the recreation grounds in Marvel Street, where 32 men’s team and 12 women’s teams battled it out in seven a side, seven minute half matches, with almost 100 games played over the two days. The emphasis of play in Sevens is speed, skill, and fitness. A team is usually comprised entirely of backs, because of their fitness and agility compared to their forward counterparts. Byron Rugby Club president Warren Fisher called the Tournament ‘Rugby Heaven’. ‘This is the 19th year of the Byron Bay Rugby Sevens,’ said Warren. ‘This is an event that perfectly mixes the social with the skilful and gives

our best players and referees a chance to perform on a big stage.’ And perform they did. As clubs have finished their ordinary season, many travel to the Sevens as an end of year excursion and a chance to have a bit of fun and though the contest is taken seriously, there is an element of tomfoolery in many of the matches. A team from Newcastle called The Flying Montgomerys, was made up entirely of members called ‘Dave’ and the 7th member was a blow-up doll which was carried the entire match by members in turn, and like the dummy, the team played in luminous yellow shirts and their underpants, the uniform proving contagious when the ref stripped down to his jocks and wore his shorts as a hat. One of the players from the following match thought undies too stuffy and made a play in the nick, scoring a try and cheers from the crowd. Nudie runs were a feature of the day and during the final match one player from the Eltham Bats treated the crowd to ‘The Worm’ in his birthday suit. The commentator made mention that is was fortunate the council had sprayed for bindii. At the business end of the day the play was of an excellent standard and a real treat for the fans. In the finals of D group, the local team from Lennox Head beat the Alleygators though

the score is uncertain as the commentator remarked after the last try, ‘that try makes the Lennox score, um, more than it was before.’ In the C grade final, the Eltham Bats played and won against the Wollongbar Young Bloods 55-12 and in the B final Wainui O Mate from New Zealand beat Brisbane’s Busted Eagles, 36-14. The women’s tournament was of a high standard and the girls gave as good as they got and were certainly out to prove their mettle among the big boys. The twelve teams which included the Byron girls team, were eventually whittled down to two, in the end the Eastside from Brisbane got the better of Gold Coast Storm the final result 14-12. It was the A grade final that everyone was waiting for and the entire field was surrounded by onlookers as the Fijian and New Zealand teams went head to head as the unknown quantity from Fiji’s Pacific Harbour, Uprising Beach Resort faced last year’s runner up, the Bulldawgz. Spectators had a tough time keeping track of the game as the play was hard and fast and covered every corner of the field. Uprising Beach displayed all the skills that they are famous for and last year’s bridesmaids, the Bulldawgz, were determined to have what they couldn’t get in 2007. With the winners prize of $4000 up for grabs, these

After almost 100 matches the final came down to these two when winger from the winning team Uprising Beach Resort from Fiji, above, heads for the try line with New Zealand’s Bulldawgz in hot persuit, while the sixteen Daves in The Flying Montgomerys team from Newcastle, below, conviced even the ref that undies were the only yhting that a sensible Dave wears in the ultimate rugby competitioon.

The NS14 is a 14 foot dinghy designed in about 1965 and introduced at the Northbridge sailing club in Sydney, Australia. NS originally stood for ‘Northbridge Senior’. Today the class is the most competitive two handed development class in Australia. During the event at Hollywell, the wind was steady

from the north at about 15 knots for most of the weekend which meant good sailing and minimal interference from the wake and windage of the many power boats that frequent those waters. Duncan and Darcy racing in Duncan’s Aero11A ‘in a frenzy’, hadn’t sailed together before, Darcey filling in at the

blokes were serious about the game and after one of the event’s most exciting contests, it was in the end the newcomers from Uprising Beach

last minute for Duncan’s crew mate who was ill. Even so the team placed with three 2nds and two 3rds in a competition where the best four of five results count toward the total and managed an overall second in the comp. The pair had a great time and soon got used to each other to the point where they led most of the last race only to give it away on the final leg to the finish to the eventual overall winner

Hugh Tate in his Tiger, ‘Tigger’. Coming second to Hugh is nothing to feel bad about as he is the Queensland, New South Wales, ACT and Australian champ, so he knows what he’s doing. Duncan, who has been sailing and competing since he was 12 years old loves the sport and is off to the National NS14 Titles at the Brighton Seacliffe Yacht Club in Adelaide at the end of the year.

ALL ABOARD! Planning a day at the races with friends? Or perhaps a staff function, like a Christmas bash?

Captain Harry would love to take you there!

The Northern Rivers Social Development Council urges people with a concern about the lack of housing in our region to register for the Shelter NSW workshop to be held in Lismore on October 22. The purpose of the workshop is to gather local housing information as part of Shelterâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s campaign to deliver better housing for low to moderate income people in New South Wales. According to Tony Davies, CEO of NRSDC, government and media have tended to focus on housing shortages and affordability issues in Sydney but our region is experiencing the same housing crisis. â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Our rents in parts of the region are as high as Sydneyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s but our incomes are so much lower,â&#x20AC;&#x2122; he explained. The Shelter NSW campaign will focus on increased sup-

If given the go-ahead, the College of Marine Studies at Brunswick Heads will not only breathe life back into the under utilised resources such as the slipway, marina and Old Fins building but create opportunities for people of all ages in the marine sector. A website has just come online with the aim of providing information to the community and government bodies about the location, history and vision of the college. Michelle Kelly from Byron Web Solutions says the brief for the website was to give people a taste of what could be in store for the future of the shire by restoring the maritime industry in Brunswick Heads. â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;They wanted a vibrant looking site which could incorporate the diverse support and enthusiasm shown by so

many community, industry and government bodies. â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Phil Walters from the College of Marine Studies wanted to acknowledge the immense support he and the steering committee have had in the four years since the concept took flight. â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;What became so apparent to me while researching and trawling through the mountains of documents was that the Brunswick River is so richly steeped in boat building history and that these magnificent resources are just sitting there ready for the college to make the most of them. â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s been a fantastic project to be involved in.â&#x20AC;&#x2122; Visitors to the site can register support for the College, or find out about courses planned for the college.

The good news is that regular movie showing is to return to Mullum via the renovated civic hall. The program will be released in The Echo next week. Congrats to the organisers for having a go. No doubt you’ll be able to lobby them to have your favourite obscure Fellini flick included in the lineup. Backlash thinks The Fifth Element would set the right tone in these times of global crisis.

In National Organics Week the Secretary-General of UNCTAD (UN Conference on Trade & Development), Supachai Panitchpakdi, said that organic agriculture was one of the most promising options to solve the world’s current farming problems: ‘In our view, organic agriculture is one of the most promising options to meet global challenges.’
