REALITY BY A HALF HEAD

Council seeks to exhibit new LEP Michael McDonald

Help keep track of turtles ‘Make Turtles Count’ is not a compulsory arithmetic project for reptiles but the latest initiative of Australian Seabird Rescue, launched at The Pass last Friday with the release of young turtles ‘Sassy’ and ‘Rasputin’. The Make Turtles Count project has been funded by WWF and the Australian government. A beach monitoring program will span the turtle nesting and hatching season from November 1 to April 30, as well as four 10-day underwater surveys conducted through the year. The project covers 225 kilometres of coastline between the Clarence

and Tweed Rivers. Partner agencies include the National Parks and Wildlife Service, Cape Byron Marine Park, Southern Cross University and the Byron Underwater Research Group. Project coordinator Keith Williams said, ‘A comprehensive nesting and population survey has never been undertaken on the far north coast and is vital for the ongoing protection of these endangered species. ‘Over the past few years local beach users have demonstrated their interest in looking out for turtles and

now we all have the opportunity to work together on this project. ‘We need at least 100 people to help monitor the beaches,’ Keith said. ‘So many people already walk, surf, swim or fish on the beaches, it’s just a matter of knowing what to look for and how to report turtle activity.’ ASR will also be promoting the project at local markets and community events and people will be able to sign up for the project at a ‘Make Turtles Count’ stall. Further information is available from admin@ seabirdrescue.org or 6686 2852 during office hours.

Northern sports fields strategy adopted Further sports fields in the north of the Shire came a step closer on October 23 when Councillors voted 8-0 in favour of a motion from Cr Ross Tucker to adopt the Northern Shire Sporting Fields Strategy with amendments. The outcome will see dressing rooms, showers and light-

ing for the Tom Kendall Field at New Brighton. The amendments also included development of additional amenities at the fields used by the Mullumbimby Rugby League Club and improvements at the Mullumbimby netball courts.

Council will also hold a workshop ‘to address the issues of Lot 423, New Brighton and Dung Oval, Billinudgel and any other related issues’. Lot 423 next to Tom Kendall Field at New Brighton has been targeted for additional sports fields but some continued on page 2

Unease pipped Confusion at the post in the Local Environmental Plan Stakes last Friday. Byron Shire councillors struggled to come to grips with the new draft LEP, staff stressed the urgency of getting the plan on public exhibition, and Belongil resident John Vaughan voiced concerns over some of the plan’s ‘arduous and stringent’ zonings. The process was no easier for the general public and the media. Annexures from an earlier meeting were missing from the agenda papers and one related report only turned up in paper form on the day. And what was meant to be a meeting about the LEP swung chiefly to an hours-long debate on holiday letting. That debate resulted in a successful motion by Cr Patrick Morrisey for Council to adopt a holiday letting model regulated through an approval system other than by development application and for that model to go on public exhibition. The model will also need state government approval, so Council in conjunction with other councils will lobby the NSW government to that effect.

Holiday letting models After beginning at 10.30am and waddling through to 3.30pm, Council also resolved 7-1, Cr Cameron opposed, to seek approval from the Department of Planning (DoP) to put the draft LEP on public exhibition and to include provisions for holiday letting based on the Morrisey model rather than the 12 options offered up by staff. Council’s planners expect the DoP will take around six months to give that approval and the final LEP is unlikely to be gazetted before the end of 2009. Along the way to the LEP resolution, Mayor Jan Barham was successful with a motion to receive a further report on the Local Environmental Study (LES) for the LEP clarifying

key strategic directions as they affect the planning document. Cr Barham found the LEP process to date confusing and sought greater clarity: ‘This is meant to be our community document to define the future.’ Mayor Barham was also critical of the way the LEP was progressed through Council without councillor input through a formal planning committee. ‘I’d like to return to that time-honoured tradition, ‘ she said. She described some of the state government planning templates as ‘not appropriate’ and said the LES ‘shouldn’t have cost $100,000’. During public access Mr Vaughan, the lone speaker, claimed that, under the new LEP zonings, property rights of landowners on the Belongil beachfront would be removed without compensation. ‘This will have an enormous economic impact and will only end up in a bunfight,’ he said. Councillors were broadly of two schools of thought: that more information was needed before proceeding, or, that further delays before Christmas would delay the exhibition of the LEP unnecessarily.

‘Get on with it’ ‘We need to get on with it,’ said Cr Ross Tucker. ‘Quite frankly I don’t like the document but if we put it on exhibition, landowners can have a look at it. If you think holiday letting will be the only issue, then you’re mistaken. The LEP we have now will not be the document we end up with in 18 to 24 months – it’ll get a terrific amount of panelbeating.’ To add to the panelbeating, NSW planning minister Kristina Keneally has just announced another round of the planning reforms which have bedevilled the process over the last few years. This reform allows for ‘special project managers’ to manage the rezoning of land across the state to be provided more quickly for housing, commercial or industrial use. Watch this space.

residents have objected on ecological grounds and, in the case of neighbours, loss of amenity. The purchase of Dung Oval at Billinudgel has been considered before but not supported by previous councils because of flooding issues and distance from Ocean Shores. The strategy went on public exhibition in June this year.

NOTICE TO PUBLIC On 9 October 2008, Council passed Resolution No. 08-596 as follows: “That (selection of the contractor to construct the new sewer treatment works to service Mullumbimby and Brunswick Heads) be deferred for consideration at a workshop prior the November Ordinary Meeting of Council and that the item be resubmitted to the November Ordinary Meeting.â€? If Council votes again in November to cancel the proposed start date of January 2009, then the now 10-year long sewer moratorium is likely to continue indeďŹ nitely. Read this notice to see if you would be adversely affected. A vote to cancel the start date would: Continue indeďŹ nitely the pollution of the Brunswick River with sewage discharged into the River from the old STP. Prevent any affordable housing from being constructed in Brunswick Heads or Mullumbimby, which is the most affordable town in the Shire, under the Draft Affordable Housing Strategy now on exhibition. Prevent all landowners in Mullumbimby and Brunswick Heads from gaining development approval of any form of development that would add to the load on the old sewer system (the moratorium continues until‌?) If you feel that for the above reasons it would be wrong to cancel or postpone the start date, or that you will be adversely affected, you are encouraged to: 1) Contact all Councillors and let them know how you will be affected. Names and contact details of our newly-elected Councillors are available at: s THE#OUNCILWEBSITEWWWBYRONNSWGOVAUUNDERh#ONTACT#OUNCILv on the upper header of the main page s A TTHEFRONTCOUNTEROF#OUNCIL s A LLLIBRARIESINTHE3HIRE 2) Contact Member for Parliament Don.Page@parliament.nsw.gov.au 2 November 4, 2008 The Byron Shire Echo

Council also consulted with sporting groups at the Ocean Shores Community Centre on June 23. Under the strategy Council will also develop netball/basketball courts at Water Lily Park, Ocean Shores, upgrade soccer fields at Pine Avenue, Mullumbimby, provide lights for all sports fields at Brunswick Heads, and improve Council-owned land opposite Mullum High for athletics and hockey. In addition, Council will investigate the use of the Brunswick Heads sewage treatment plant site for fields once the plant is decommissioned in 2010.

Becton’s development manager Matthew Rice last Friday told The Echo, ‘It is not possible to know what impact the current formal due diligence discussion will have on individual projects, therefore it is premature to predict any outcome. The fundamentals

of the Becton business are strong and its projects, including Northbeach Byron, are integral to the value of the business. ‘We are currently working on designs for the site with the intention still to launch in 2009.’

Church belltower fundraising at crucial stage Fundraising activities for the repairs to the bell tower at St Martin’s in Stuart Street Mullumbimby have reached a crucial stage according to Margaret Giles, treasurer of the restoration committee. ‘We have applied for a number of grants, including what is called Kickstart funding. To qualify for this payment we have to meet a fundraising deadline, in our case if we can show that we have raised $25,000 by November 9 we will receive an extra $5000. While we acknowledge this is

Despite turmoil on the stock market, Becton hopes to proceed as planned with its North Beach development at Byron Bay. In recent weeks the company’s stock price dropped to 15 cents, compared to a high

a big ask we are still hopeful of achieving this goal.’ Work has commenced with the first stage being the raising of a scaffold around the tower. After this the bricks will be removed and cleaned before being re-mortared and laid back in place. The fundraising committee was buoyed by the news this week that the recent concert by the Camerata of St John’s string orchestra at St Martin’s netted proceeds of $2000, which has been kindly donated to the repair fund by the Byron Music Society.

Bay FM radio honours one of its own ‘Robbie’s show was always wonderful to listen to. He and the music he played were uplifting, full of joy and happiness.’ ‘Robbie was a celebration of life – imparting joy to all those who knew him. If you were lucky enough to be his friend, then you knew he was a friend forever.’ These are just some of the tributes to Robbie you may have heard last Saturday morning on Bay FM. Robbie McGready passed away peacefully at home on Friday October 24 with his devoted and loving family beside him. Robbie was one of life’s gentlemen. Born in Ireland 85 years ago, his childhood years were spent in Belfast and County Westmeath in the South. He arrived in Australia in 1947 after serving with the Royal Navy. Robbie began a career in radio and television in Orange in 1952. Robbie’s work in radio was extensive, including the longest running breakfast show on 2CH, 2HD in Newcastle and 2GZ in Orange. His television debut in the 1950s was hosting one of the first daytime quiz shows on Australian television, Jackpot Quiz, and his involvement with television lasted 20 years. Robbie McGready was one

of Bay FM’s earliest presenters. He was there in the early broadcasting days of Bay FM. From 1991 he hosted the Musical Kaleidoscope program on Saturday mornings, and at the time of his last program in 2006, he was proud to have had the longest running show on Bay FM. During his time at Bay FM Robbie never missed a show bar one. He was passionate about his music and about Bay FM. He had a lifetime of fascination with radio.

A memorial service was held for Robbie at the Byron Community Centre last Thursday where a group of 100 friends and family gathered to pay tribute to this much loved community member. Robbie’s son Michael McGready read the eulogy, and granddaughters Bianca and Emily spoke with love and admiration of their grandfather and Emily sang a version of Moon River. Robbie was cremated in a private service after the memorial.

Robbie McGready was an inspiration to all. He was the custodian of memories through the music he played, wanting to keep them alive for everyone to enjoy. He was a lover of life and lived it to the fullest. He was a kind, generous and compassionate man who will be dearly missed by his Bay FM family and listeners. In signing off, Robbie’s own words were â€˜â€Ś and always remember the people who love you love to see you smile’.

Primary producers urged to apply for assistance Some good news for primary producers on the far north coast with Natural Disaster Relief Assistance available to those affected by a hailstorm last week. The announcement by the NSW primary industries minister Ian Macdonald has been welcomed by Member for Ballina Don Page. ‘The hailstorm caused millions of dollars worth of damage to farms in a band between

Tregeagle and Suffolk Park,’ Mr Page said. ‘It couldn’t have come at a worse time for some farmers who were harvesting stone fruit and blueberries. ‘Many macadamia trees were stripped of their young nuts as well. Some producers have suffered terrible losses but now that the area has been declared a natural disaster zone, at least they are able to get access to some assistance.

â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a particularly difficult time for some producers who were also affected by hail storms last year. Some farmers in the area have lost between 50% and 100% of their crops. â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;That equates to losing 50% to 100% of their incomes. â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Assistance is in the form of loans up to $130,000, at 2.85% interest per annum, with a two-year interest and repayment free period.

â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;I urge all growers whose crops were damaged last week to speak to someone from the NSW Rural Assistance Authority. â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Information about Natural Disaster Relief Assistance is available from the Authority on 1800 678 593.â&#x20AC;&#x2122; Mr Page said farmers who received natural disaster assistance last year can still apply this year.

Mullum skatepark gets a spruce-up

POOL SHOP

GRAND OPENING 2/24 Brigantine Street Arts & Industry Estate, Byron Bay

9.00am to 12.00pm Saturday 8th November Story & photo Eve Jeffery

A group of students are creating art in an effort to clean up their own back yard. The boys are part of the Youthlinx Program and are completing year 10 at Mullumbimby High School. The lads came up with the idea for the project after doing a mural on the Great Northern wall in Byron. They decided they would like to do some more aerosol art that would also be of benefit to one of their stomping grounds, the skate park at Mullumbimby. Deborah Pearse, who is the Youthlinx coordinator for the Byron Youth Service, got together with the boys and Byron council’s Youth Development Officer Rita YoussefPrice in an effort work cooperatively on the skate park idea. ‘The boys and I had several meetings with Rita from Council and we did some planning around what might improve the space,’ said Deborah. ‘The boys’ idea ended

up tying in with discussions about Mullum Skatepark and how we could make it a more community and youth friendly environment. As part of that process the boys were also given info around the negative consequences of tagging and illegal graffiti in the community, how that impacts on them and their community and the legal consequences.’ Rita Youssef-Price says that Council is happy to be on board to work with the students.

youth friendly and give young people a stronger sense of belonging and ownership. ‘They said they would also like to create a set of rules to remind people about keeping the place safe and usable for everyone.’ In a collaborative project the vision became a reality and Council outdoor staff were happy to support the project by providing four large boards for the murals, with the intention of mounting them along the fence, once they were completed.

Reducing vandalism Group design ‘We had a few meetings with the boys and with representatives from the Mullumbimby Youth and Recreational Facility Inc to talk about how the park could be improved and how we could reduce the vandalism and graffiti,’ said Rita last Friday at the skate park. ‘As a group, the young men came up with a few project ideas, the first being to create some murals that would help make the place feel more

We use the latest EFI & computerised diagnostic equipment and can service all late model and European cars.

Deborah employed a young artist to help the group design and create the murals which look fabulous alongside the park, the words ‘Your Local Skate Park’ now grace the eastern side of the park thanks to the installation by outdoor staff. In an effort to reduce the vandalism and broken glass, the group had other ideas like setting up some rules for skaters, using metal bins, tree

planting for extra shade, creating some extra seating and toilets, installing a new drink fountain and lighting. ‘It would be great to keep a partnership happening with this group to support them in improving the skate park and making it a safer place for everyone. It’s a real credit to the group that they want to make a positive difference in their community and to be involved,’ said Rita.

Council assistance Council has plans to assist the Youthlinx Program to continue work with the young men’s group in the new year to establish some rules to be posted at the site. Deborah said she is pleased with the outcome of the project. ‘Erecting the boards is the first stage in an improvement to amenities program for the skatepark which is regularly vandalised, tagged and littered. We are hoping to create a friendly environment so that young people take pride in this resource.’

One of the showâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s organisers and the donor of the pony, Mac Nicolson, said, â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;To compete for the pony all entrants have to do is present a written â&#x20AC;&#x153;claimâ&#x20AC;? for the pony including details of where it is to be kept, how it will be cared for and what name it would be given along with a short essay on

â&#x20AC;&#x153;Why I deserve this ponyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;â&#x20AC;?. â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Then on the day all the applicants will be judged on how they ride, how sporting they are and how hard they try. If they donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have a horse they can be judged on how helpful they are on the day to others.â&#x20AC;&#x2122; The NHAG show has become a popular event on the local horseriders calender, especially for young riders and adult riders who just want a relaxed and enjoyable time with their horse. The show is a fundraiser for the Byron Shire Community Trail.

Fireworks expected at Mullum Fair This year for the first time fireworks will be a feature of Mullumbimby Public School’s November Fair. Local businesses have come to the party to sponsor the exciting spectacle which will go off between 8.15pm and 8.30pm on Friday. This year’s Fair will also be as weatherproof as the parents organising it can possibly make it. After a torrential downpour seriously dampened the start of last year’s Fair, the decision was made to hire a large marquee for most For only half what you’d pay of the stalls. This will create a at most shows, the big kids festive food hall effect. can ride in the Bat Tower, the Super Slide and little kids can jump themselves silly at the Beach Party Jumping Castle. Once the kids have worn themselves out from all that sliding and jumping, you can visit the sculpture show, vote for your favourite, do some sand art, take a quiet stroll though the tealight labyrinth

or try your luck in the Pick- aBox Raffle or the major raffle. If you are in the mood for bargain hunting, you can visit the book stall, the plant stall, Trash n Treasure, the supermarket , the cake stall or make some bids at the auction with bargains galore. Or buy a sample bag or a few old fashioned lollies. If you don’t want to cook dinner Friday, there will be

lots of great food to choose from such as Gourmet pies, steak sandwiches at the barbeque, chicken kebabs, waffles, cakes, drinks and good coffee at the Oasis. Or you can sit down and be served at The Learning Centre Restaurant, where the Grade Six students will serve you pizza, salads and desserts. There will be entertainment on stage from 5.30pm – songs for the kids to join in with, African drumming, ballads, rock and classical. A family band will play, little Jamala will sing solo, Lucy and Anatole Serrett or Double Digit and rock band Purple Chalk will perform a few originals. The Kindys will dance to ‘Boy Lollipop’ and a talented band of parent musicians will perform again. Come along and enjoy the carnival atmosphere on Friday November 7 from 4.30pm on.

A summer ball for Mullumbimby A good summer ball has been missing from Mullum since the famous Chinny ball met its demise, and a group of hardy folk affiliated with Mullumbimby High School has decided to rectify this situation with the birth of the ‘Mullumbimby High School Dinner Dance’. The inaugu-

ral dance will take place on Friday November 28 at the revamped Civic Hall, with toe tapping entertainment from The Round Mountain Girls, dinner provided and drinks available from the bar. So dig into the back of your closets and dust off your suits and strapless frocks. Tables are

arranged to seat groups of ten – and book your seats at what promises to be a night to remember. Tickets at $50 go on sale this week and are available from the school office 9am-11am. All money raised will go towards the upgrade of digital media facilities in the school hall.

welcome Dr Walter Piccolruaz to our practice. Dr Piccolruaz was born in Italy and migrated to Australia with his family at the age of 3. Graduating from Sydney University in 1990 Dr Piccolruaz worked in the UK for several years gaining considerable experience in crown and bridge molar endodontics and minor oral surgery. In 1999 Dr Piccolruaz returned to Australia gaining further experience in cosmetic dentistry and rotary endodontics. A multiskilled practitioner who takes pride in keeping abreast of latest developments in order to provide the best treatment solutions, practising an easygoing and caring nature.

It is a measure of the gullibility of the populace that some people actually believe them. Colliers are going to cart the coal mines off to China, power generators will run their cables from the Philippines, aluminium refiners will desert their plants and supply sources and emigrate to India and the cement manufacturers will relocate their quarries and factories to Vietnam. The opposition and Murdoch press are actually offering credulity and support to this fantasy as evidence of the need to do nothing for as long as possible. It is time they got fair dinkum. Either they believe in climate change or they don’t. If they don’t, then let them say so: it will identify them as pig-ignorant knuckle-draggers whose views can be dismissed henceforth, but at least we’ll know where we stand. However, if they want to be part of the solution rather than part of the problem, then let’s get on with it. It may already be too late to avoid some serious consequences; it certainly will be unless we acknowledge the situation is urgent and becoming more so. The frog is well and truly in the pot and the water is getting steadily hotter. If we want to stop it from coming to the boil we have to act now. It’s Time. The report that lame duck President George Bush asked Kevin Rudd to explain to him what the G20 is has been called a diplomatic scandal, but it could have been much worse. To count up to G20, Dubya only needed to remove his shoes and socks. If it had been the G21 he would have had to take off his trousers as well. Now that really would have been an embarrassment.

Resources for collapsing systems A fantastic letter from Geoff Dawe last week â&#x20AC;&#x201C; surely there can be no doubt in any thinking personâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s mind that any system, be it capitalist, socialist, Buddhist, Christian, Muslim, Pagan or whatever, can be successful when peopled by those of intelligence, compassion and the desire to work for the wellbeing of community (both human and non-human) as opposed to the exclusive wellbeing of the individual. We are all family, and we all live in the same big house.

Bronwyn Sindel

Mullumbimby â&#x2013; Geoff Dawe suggests that â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;both capitalism and socialism are workable systems...â&#x20AC;&#x2122; Er... isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t it clear by now that all of the old energy systems

Wonderful Peg

are in the process of collapsing? Arenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t we all observing this happening, right now? In the US, strange though it may seem, Bush has done a magnificent job in showing everyone who cares to take notice that all of these have to go: war, greed, environmental abuse, the use of fear to keep people under control, etc. And yes, they are on the way out. We are moving very, very rapidly towards 2012, when the world as we know it will transform. While Obama will be working with the old energy systems, his regime will be built around hope. Replacing it will be the New Age, where compassion, the balance between feminine and masculine energies, and above all, love, will be at the forefront.

So, dear Byron Shire Council, why did you choose to keep over $50m of our money in old energy investments? And lose... $7m? There are many, many people in this area who could have warned against it. And the major financial hiccups of August 2007 around sub-prime debt, CDOs and all the rest made things very obvious. Please, would all the organisations around us, including our Council, take a look at and work with the new reality? Use our local resources â&#x20AC;&#x201C; the New Agers, those with psychic abilities and more, etc â&#x20AC;&#x201C; weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re blessed to have them! Things are going to change â&#x20AC;&#x201C; in a very big way. It will be an exciting ride, thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s for sure, and things could well look a

She became a member of the committee and continued as a committee member for many years, at times she was secretary. Her enthusiasm, perseverance and experience were very much appreciated and she was eventually made a life member by the grateful organisation in recognition of her very valuable service. We all loved Peg and we will miss that vibrant, warm person. But we are extremely grateful to have known her and to have had in our organisation such a glowing example of true community spirit.

overseas and while on my usual daily walk I noticed that Council during my absence had posted a sign on the north bank of the Tallow Beach Lagoon requesting that people not walk along the northern dune bank for fear of furthering erosion and that the erosion was a result of natural processes. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m afraid this last statement is completely false â&#x20AC;&#x201C; the erosion is entirely due to Council staff insensitively using earth moving equipment on the site. The last time the lagoon became overly full, a group of concerned citizens had dug a trench from the lagoon to the sea. They dug it in the logical place for a hand-dug trench, from the lowest point on the lip of the lagoon. This also

In recent weeks there have been letters acknowledging the wonderfully rich life of Peg Gloor and her broad and valued input into the community of the North Coast. Something not mentioned was her long connection with the Community Centre of Byron Bay and before that the Literary Institute as it was previously called. She had long been involved in the Drama Society and in the various other events at the Literary Institute, I first met her during the production of a play called The Farmerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Wife Jan Dawkins in the early 70s. Committeeperson In 1980 a public meeting Byron Bay Community was held to establish a ComAssociation Inc munity Centre in Byron Bay and typically Peg volunteered Council erosion for the steering committee.

Byron Bay â&#x2013; Has anyone else noticed that

part of a solution to the world economic crisis is the same as part of the solution to the world greenhouse crisis? Eliminating fossil fuel use removes an input cost from production, transport etc. Garnaut greatly overstates the costs involved in making this shift. As there are no remaining technological issues to prevent the move to a zero-emission economy, a well-made case from a financial perspective should be unstoppable.

Byron Bay happened to run parallel with the sand dunes that made up the north bank of the lagoon. Council staff then mechanically cut a trench following the line of the hand-dug trench. Unfortunately the extra volume and speed of water flow resulted in the undermining of the root systems and the loss of ten (I counted them) mature casuarinas and about 3-4 metres of sand dunes â&#x20AC;&#x201C; changing their profile from a well-rounded mature dune shape to a sand cliff. The death of these trees and the endangering of the trees at the crest of the dune is also likely to exacerbate erosion in the future, as is the continuation of water flow close to the dune face. When the sea breaks through to the lagoon by â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;natural processesâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; it almost always breaks through at the middle of the lagoon mouth (and I walk here nearly every

A case for thorium The recent headlines read ‘Sydney Weapons Summit Warns of Growing Nuclear Threat, A new non-proliferation group warns the world is on the brink of a massive increase in nuclear weapons’. Yet there is an answer to all of this that is being overlooked. It should be easy

enough to ban all uranium fuelled reactors in favour of thorium reactors. Thorium reactors have several advantages. They produce far less radioactive waste, about 3% compared to uranium. They can be used to burn plutonium and this makes them effective in getting rid of one of the most toxic substances known – plutonium used for the construction of nuclear weapons. Thorium is more abundant than uranium and requires less processing for use in reactors. Thorium does not produce plutonium as a byproduct and can even be used to burn up old plutonium and nuclear waste. The main drawback of thorium power stations is that there would no longer be any plutonium for the militaryindustrial complex to make their nuclear weapons. See Quantum report on thorium at www.abc.net.au/ quantum/scripts98/9820/thoriumscpt.htm or type thorium into Google. Lots of info there that the leaders of the new International Commission on Nuclear Non-proliferation and Disarmament obviously haven’t read yet. Peggy Balfour

© Rous Water, Widjabul custodians & Sustainable Futures Australia 2007

‘The Watering Hole’ has been created as a collaborative effort between the local Widjabul custodians of the Bundjalung Nation, Sustainable Futures Australia and Rous Water. The series of five cartoon strips is part of the ‘Reconnecting to Country’ project which aims to engage the community in caring for the Wilsons River catchment area.

Future on a Hotter Planet by Mark Lynas, author of High Tide, Climate Code Red, the case for Emergency Action by David Spratt and Philip Sutton, and Climate Wars by Gwynne Dyer. A statement from Lovelock’s The Revenge of Gaia neatly sums up the background to Six Degrees, which chapter by chapter describes scenarios on Earth as the temperature increases one by one to an unimaginable six degrees hotter than it is now. Most of this is not speculation, but is based on years of scientific investigation and modelling. ‘The human experiment on the planet’s climate – of turning up the heat with billions of tonnes of greenhouse gases, whilst at the same time wiping out most natural ecosystems that help to regulate the climate – will have the same predictable effect on the Earth as the Soviet technicians had on Chernobyl’s reactor core when they tried the same experiment. It will lead to meltdown.’ – The Revenge of Gaia. Page 253 of Six Degrees – ‘Look at a satellite composite photo of the Earth at night, see each continent lit up by a tangled spider’s web of cities,

and marvel at the visual totality of this plethora of continual human energy consumption, 80 percent of which is based on burning fossil fuels. Then it might seem less surprising that each year’s C02 concentrations are higher than the last, and that each breath you inhale has more carbon dioxide in it than any breath ever taken by any human before you over the entire evolutionary history of our species. It can hardly be a surprise either that the climate is changing rapidly: what would be a surprise were if everything continued as normal.’ The author gives short shrift to our denials of responsibility for limiting our personal carbon footprint such as ‘I am not the main cause of this problem’, ‘Nothing I do makes much difference’, ‘ It is too difficult for me to change my behaviour’ etc. ‘As the post-war Nuremberg trials established, ignorance is not defence; nor is merely following orders. To me the moral path lies not in passively accepting our destructive role, but in actively resisting such a horrendous fate.’ Although the reading of Six Degrees is enough to send readers into a tailspin of dread,

I hope it will have the opposite effect and invigorate them to fully support those who are working on solutions. The final chapter does somewhat relieve the descriptions of increasingly terrifying scenarios as temperatures rise throughout the world. It offers some hope as long as mankind acts fast to limit greenhouse emissions and is prepared to meet the enormous cost. Joan Ajala

ters. Without the enormous energy and tireless efforts by residents like Ralph Judd, strong committees, and dedicated MPs like Don Page (the only one who bothered to ask questions in Parliament), you would still be listening to machine gun bursts throughout the night. The noise for most residents has at least halved, and many can hear the ocean again, but we still have far too many B-Doubles passing through the middle of Ocean Shores (many people do not know that OS boundaries are on the western side of the highway) and we will still be lobbying for the sound walls that have been dismissed by the RTA, simply because the RTA has a duty of care to the community to reduce noise pollution, and at the very least it should consider the social impact of withholding adequate infrastructure and robbing residents of a good night’s sleep.

We’re pleased that Norm Sanders (Letters, October 28) from Byron Ratepayers Association is happy with the results of no longer having to listen to the ripple strip noise, after returning from his overseas trip; but the ‘magic’ that happened while he was away was not the work of fairies at the bottom of his garden.

Who’s the rampant developer now? Thank you, Dailan Pugh, there would be few people who are aware of what this Council is proposing to do (‘Affordable housing? Unaffordable development’, Echo, October 28). In a sinister attempt to hide their agenda from the general public, they have proposed Affordable Housing Donor Precincts – ‘carefully selected areas’ for density bonus developments from which they hope to raise money for their Affordable Housing Fund through a share of the profits once sold. An example of a ‘carefully selected area’ includes the

northern (and soon, southern side) of Shirley Street and Lawson Street up to Clarkes Beach. These are highly developed areas of luxury apartments, holiday units and backpacker hostels – not much affordable housing there but plenty of revenue potential from future development. In Brunswick, the AH Donor Precinct includes areas that are a mixture of houses, residential and holiday units and in Mullumbimby, a low density residential area. This is not about granny flats – this is medium density development by stealth.

There has been no study to assess the social impact of this form of development in this area of Mullumbimby. The consultant’s study discarded the area east of the railway line for affordable housing as it was too far from amenities, so one can only assume that it then made the area viable for another form of development, but why within a flood prone area with chronic sewerage problems during heavy rain? Council has yet to explain to the homeowners the grounds on which they based their decision and why their amenity is not worth protecting.

It is most ironic that the Councillor most vocal in his support for this concept rallied in opposition to concrete bike paths in Brunswick Heads’ parks, but is willing to fracture the Mullumbimby community by redeveloping the eastern part of the proposed Heritage Conservation Area, under concrete, for a 25% greater density than the rest of town! In four years’ time, will they still be blaming Ross Tucker for the rampant development of this Shire?

there is so much more to be done. AWAs are gone but a scrapping of WorkChoices that does not make! Many remnants are now taking root in Canberra. They have promised ‘no worker will be worse off ’ under the Award Modernisation – yet to deliver. I believe that WorkChoices Lite will not be accepted by the people who resoundingly voted against it. Am I right or does apathy win? Now is the time to get active. Drop your prejudice against unions and be part of the solution. Don’t let governments of any persuasion take away rights at work! What can you do? Join a union (www.union.australia. com.au or 1300 486 466) – for $9 per week you receive many benefits. If you are a union member, well done, now research how to build union in your workplace. Talk to other workers, lobby politicians, call your local organiser. Spend an hour making a plan. Every entitlement we take for granted was won by unions. Think about the leave

you get, overtime and penalty rates, OHS laws, superannuation, rest breaks… The quality of our working future is still on the line. What workplace inheritance do we leave our grandkids?

etnam and India have them, but not us. I get phone calls every day from people desperate for help, yet at the moment the only choice is to go overseas for this wonderful device. Twelve million dollars donated to the pink ribbon cause is wonderful but that money (on top of the millions already donated by us) could have bought Australia two Cyberknife devices and could now be saving many of the 40,000 (yes, that’s right 40,000) people who will die from cancer this year and a ‘cure’ into the future won’t help them one bit. We deserve Cyberknife for our family and loved ones suffering now or tomorrow or next week.

Bowling Club of TOOT where there were ‘a whole lot of other people I’d never met before’. I asked members of several organisations in Bangalow and nobody knows you, Ross. When the trains stopped running several thousand signatures from the community were collected and sent to the Minister who at the time was Michael Costa – enough said. Your sweeping statement ‘We’ve never had a local train service’ – wrong again. Taken from Commonwealth Bank Archives: ‘Bangalow enjoyed a good rail service with four trains running each way daily, plus seaside excursions to Byron Bay every summer Sunday.’ Also before Byron High was open the train took the students to Mullumbimby High. It’s nice to buy everyone a car or a bike but there are people who don’t drive, can only afford to have one car or are too young or old to get a licence. I would like to see a woman with a couple of small children pedalling a bike up St Helena cutting on your bike trail. Just because you are not in-

Cyberknife Well, here we go again, another pink ribbon day rolls along, more donations from we citizens to try and find a cure. Meanwhile people with cancer are still getting treated to the same old rubbish in cancer care. Why is this so when a perfectly good treatment option is available all over the world except here in Australia? Yes, I am talking about Cyberknife. Not only treats breast cancer but lung, brain, prostate, spinal, pancreas and others, but wait there’s more, it also treats children. No pain, no side effects, only one treatment needed, doesn’t damage healthy parts of the body unlike treatments we are forced to use in Australia. There are 200 cyberknife centres around the world.

tre, ANU, with a scholarship from the Defence Department. Former RSL boss and AIDEX director Sir William Keys issued an invitation in the Canberra Times to peace activists to visit the exhibition because, he said, their attitude is â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t confuse me with the factsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;. I presented my SDSC letter of introduction with a copy of the Canberra Times at the main gate and asked to be admitted. A hurried phone call by security resulted in me being turned away. History repeated itself yesterday in the Brisbane Convention Centre, when Jacob and I of OzPeace were evicted by police from the Land Warfare Conference despite having each paid $440 and registering honestly using our names and OzPeace. We had collected our name tags and snazzy conference briefcase emblazoned with â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Force Protection in the 21st Centuryâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; on Monday and had attended the lavish drinks and food welcome. Tuesday saw us busily scribbling notes in 4-hour workshops. I attended Power Options for Future Soldier Systems learning, among other things, that Iraq and Afghanistan are littered with hundreds of tonnes of contaminating dead batteries. We were heeding General Eisenhowerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s advice: â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Only an alert and knowledgeable citizenry can compel the proper meshing of the huge industrial and military machinery of defense with our peaceful methods and goals, so that security and liberty may prosper

together.â&#x20AC;&#x2122; This was anathema to the conference organisers, the Defence Science Technology Organisation, so police and security were told to get rid of us ASAP. We told apologetic police that we would go when we had a written assurance from Mr Aaron Heinrich of Loud Events that we would be reimbursed. Jacob telephoned him inviting him to come and meet us but that did not happen. Instead, the police became increasingly insistent that we leaveâ&#x20AC;Ś and we did, however, I shouted to delegates in the foyer what was happening and that was when I was manhandled and carried away. Both of us were handcuffed and taken to the Brisbane Watch House. My handcuffs were so tightly ratcheted that I was convinced my fingers were being burnt. I now have loss of feeling in half my right hand caused by damage to the radial nerve which may take many months to heal. I was charged with trespass and obstructing police and have to appear in court on November 14. Eisenhowerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s warning has gone unheeded by the Australian government which is only too happy to accommodate arms manufacturers like Raytheon, Elbit, Thales, BAE Systems, NIOA et al who see the Asia Pacific region â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;undergoing major growth in defence and aviation, with the budgets in many countries continuing to rise and

an ever increasing level of sophistication in technologies, equipment, systems and operational methodsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; (Avalon 2009, Australian International Airshow and Aerospace & Defence Exposition). South Australia markets itself as â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;the defence stateâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; while Victoria is â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;the place to do defence businessâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; and Queensland is â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Australiaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s defence destinationâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;. It is easy to feel crushed by the immensity and power of the military industrial complex but the Peace Movement has had its victories. AIDEX was never held in the ACT again because of the huge security costs and this month, the Australia Pacific Defence and Security Exhibition scheduled for Adelaide in November was cancelled because of fear of â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;low life feralsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;. We can avoid supporting militarism by boycotting cars made by arms manufacturers like SAAB, Jeep, and Land Rover. We can withdraw our savings from banks with links to the arms trade and ensure that our superannuation is with an ethical provider. We can protect our children by not buying them guns and GI Joes. Inform students in mathematics and sciences that they are going to be head-hunted by arms manufacturers and the military. We must challenge universities over defence research funding which is increasing and, last of all, how about we boycott violence as entertainment or is that too much to ask?

Does anyone else see the irony in attempting to link questionably environmentally friendly trains with airports? Another name for jet fuel is kerosene, which in turn is another name for refined coal oil. The bittersweet taste of irony gets even tangier with the thought that freight trains would be transporting bulk coal to the power stations to make the electricity to run the freight trains. No-one in their right mind would suggest that we want freight trains running through our towns. In fact, if the nowdefunct rail track never existed in the first place, the howls of outrage would be deafening were the government to insist that they intend to build one through our unique shire. The argument in favour of a light rail defeats the whole purpose of the environmentally friendly argument of having it. Electricity is not a â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;clean fuelâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s merely produced elsewhere, and the further along power lines it travels, the less efficient it becomes. The obvious â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;greenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; solution which springs to mind is to hire out electrical carts such as many senior citizens currently use â&#x20AC;&#x201C; and hereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s

the catch: fit them with solar panelled canopies to protect from the elements and keep batteries topped up during the trip and while parked at the destination. Ride them along with bikes and horses along the traffic-free zone with favourable gradients for such activities, where once the industrial iron-monsters of old travelled. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s also not impossible to believe that golf-cart â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;trainsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; could also share this same passage. Although you wouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t know it from the response in the letters pages of The Echo last week, this plan to turn the rail corridor into a bike/pedestrian/equestrian trail has majority support and has proven to be a success in scores of other places where railway lines have been decomissioned. There has never been a case where any rural rail line has been reopened once closed. To use a corny saying quite appropriate to the issue: build a bridge, get over it.

terested in getting a train back on the line donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t mean everyone is. The TOOT group is only the core working on behalf of the community to get the line extended to Queensland and a commuter service on the line. I am not a member of TOOT but with the economy going the way it is I for one would catch a train. V Gorec

Bangalow â&#x2013; Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d be only too happy to follow Cr Cameronâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s suggestion that I â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;might also take greater care to distinguish between my [his] role with TOOT and my [his] role as a Councillor in your [my] arguments.â&#x20AC;&#x2122; And I might do just that if the distinction were more apparent. I apologise, however, for appearing to suggest that the recent Bangalow meal was in any way involved with TOOT. It just seems that the recent headlines Basil has been making suggest that he himself is the one not able to distinguish between the two roles, as extraordinary meetings and passed motions strongly suggest.

Council committees mean â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;new directionâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; Michael McDonald

Byron Shireâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s new general manager Graeme Faulkner had a good run with his proposals at the council meeting of October 23. Councillors agreed to support a raft of measures which will see four new committees established. In a press release Council is now heralding this as â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;a new strategic directionâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;. According to Council, the new strategic approach to its work is â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;in line with recommendations of the Department of Local Government during its â&#x20AC;&#x153;Promoting Better Practice Reviewâ&#x20AC;? of Council in 2006â&#x20AC;&#x2122;. The committees are the Strategic Planning Committee, comprising all councillors and the general manager; the Communications Committee, comprising three councillors (Barham, Richardson and Staples), one relevantly qualified community representative and the general manager (or delegate); the Internal Audit Committee, comprising three councillors (Woods, Tucker and Tabart) and two relevantly qualified external representatives possessing either audit or accounting qualifications; and the Markets and Creative Industries Committee, comprising three councillors (Heeson, Cameron and Morrisey), one externally qualified

community representative and the general manager (or delegate). Mr Faulkner said Council would be calling for expressions of interest in the near future for relevant qualified community members to participate on these new committees and assist Council â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;to develop its strategic planning capability in these four key areasâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;. The Strategic Planning Committee will be involved in the development and finalisation of Councilâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s 25 year plan, the development and finalisation of Councilâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s 10 year financial and asset management plans, and in the preparation for the development of Councilâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s four year management plan for 2009-2013. In relation to the Internal Audit Committee, Mr Faulkner noted in his report,

â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Local government legislation in Queensland and Victoria provides for an internal audit function within each local authority and recently the NSW Department of Local Government has indicated that Internal Audit should be given more prominenceâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;. He reckoned internal auditing would help bring about an improvement in internal controls, assist in resource allocation and risk management, and improve â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;understanding of risk management beyond the traditional areas of public liability and OHS into areas such as internal governance, fraud risk and broader regulatory riskâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;. Council will also be getting an internal auditor on staff, so thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a good opportunity there for peer review of fiscal activities. The Markets and Creative Industries Committee will ac-

tively review existing Council policy to assist the development and commercial sustainability of the creative industries, home based businesses and horticulture sectors. The Communications Committee will â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;facilitate improved communications with Councilâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s constituents, leading to better social and sustainability outcomesâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;. Council is also hiring a media officer, at a cost of around $70,000 a year. This will be good news for staff who have had to write media releases â&#x20AC;&#x201C; and who have generally done a good job â&#x20AC;&#x201C; and will probably help deal with dumb inquiries from the national press intent on writing stereotypical stories about Byron Shire. What it means to the local media is yet to be seen. Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll be seeking to talk to councillors and staff as usual rather than the spinmeister. Most people would be familiar with the jokes about design-by-committee â&#x20AC;&#x201C; you ask for a mouse and you get a camel, and so on. How useful these committees prove to be will be up to the players on them. It should also be noted that the committees have an advisory function only, and the GM and councillors can either reject, accept or ignore their recommendations. Oh, and the good news for mayor Jan Barham in the vote on the GMâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s proposals, 11 in all, is that she will at last have an executive assistant. You can expect that person to have a busy work schedule.

Learning to live with reptiles Story & photo Lou Beaumont

With increasing urbanisation in our Shire it is becoming more difficult to maintain awareness about the state of the flora and fauna around us. The Byron Shire has the third highest levels of biodiversity in the state, for both flora and fauna, which gives the residents of the Shire both privilege and responsibility to learn about our local wildlife and know how to live in harmony with it. Brunswick Valley Landcare recently held a ‘Lizards and Snakes’ workshop with local ecologist Mark Fitzgerald as guest speaker. The workshop covered the habitat needs of our local reptiles and consequently the biggest threats to their existence. He was also able to dispel a few of the most popular myths and refresh snakebite first aid knowledge. Australia has a unique snake population in that it is dominated by species from the Elapid family, that is the front fanged venomous variety that have such a bad (and mostly unfounded) reputation. Eleven species of those Elapid snakes are Byron Shire residents, and we can count three sea snake species and one python species, the carpet python, as locals too. Land or sea dwelling, all snakes are competent swimmers. Of those eleven land loving local Elapids, five of them are known to be dangerous (defined as such if human fatalities have been recorded). Most of these are known to all local residents if only by name. There is the Eastern Brown Snake, the Red Belly Black Snake, the Death Adder (nice name), the Rough Scaled Snake and the Small Eyed Snake. Fitzgerald also mentioned another potentially dangerous snake that is not defined as one due to the fact that it hasn’t caused any human fatalities. The Stephen’s Banded Snake has venom that, drop for drop, is among the ten

Ecologist Mark Fitzgerald demonstrates snake bite first aid on Oran Redmond, 9, at the Brunswick Valley landcare workshop.

most potent in the world. And yes, he’s a local too. However, although we have our fair share of the scary species, Fitzgerald says much of our fear is disproportionate to the actual threat. ‘We are conditioned to fear snakes. It is my belief that that fear is not innate. ‘Snakes have a reputation for aggression but in actuality that is very rarely the case. The ones with this kind of reputation are in fact just capable of vigorous defense. In most cases, a snake will want to get as far away from you as possible. Snakes in Australia cause on average 2.5 deaths per annum, and most of those bitten were handling or trying to kill a snake. There are very few accidental bites.’ A little known fact that Fitzgerald divulged was that most snake bites, even from the known deadly species, are ‘dry’ bites, they contain little

or no venom. So, he says, a big part of first aid is reassuring the victim that death is highly unlikely and trying to be objective about the victim’s symptoms. For instance, most snake bite victims will feel sick but this can be purely a result of the adrenalin rushing through their system. If you are unlucky enough to be bitten by a snake, a crepe (compression) bandage bound as for a sprain is the best first aid technique. If, for example, the bite is on the hand, the bandage should begin at the heart end of the limb and wrapped down towards the limb extremity, leaving the bite site unbound, so it can be swabbed for venom at hospital, and then return the bandage up the limb again. Immobilisation is key, so sling the limb and keep the victim as still as possible. Drawing a circle around the wound site can be helpful for medics as

can pinning a note to your shirt, if you are the victim and on your own, with the time of the incident and any other details you are sure of, just in case. Prevention is always better than cure, and the best preventative measure is to always be aware and watch where you put your feet and hands. Limit snake shelters around your home and property by keeping your lawns well mown, compost heaps, wood piles, sheets of metal and rock walls away from the house. Keeping mice and rats controlled will keep rodent eating snakes such as the Eastern Brown in check, too. Wear long trousers, boots and gloves when in the garden or bush walking. Carry a torch at night and always have a crepe bandage on hand and one in the car, too. Dogs around the property are not a hinderance to snakes according to Fitzgerald, neither is human urine in the garden. They do have an accute sense of smell, he says, but generally it is tuned into their own species. Another misconception is that Red Bellies and Browns do not coexist, they do share habitats. With the right information to better understand our reptile friends, harmonious coexistence is a greater possibility. Some of the greatest threats to their existence are habitat degradation, global climate change (reptiles are ectotherms), feral cats and of course the cane toad. Doing something as simple as our bit for cane toad eradication is a big favour for our native predatory snakes. If you encounter a snake that is in or around your home and you wish it wasn’t, call wildlife carers or a herpetologist to relocate it. A note from Fitzgerald on carpet pythons – moving them far from their territory is as good as a death sentence for these gentle giants.

HUGE Savings on Alkaline water this month only!

New skills for young whales Researcher Kathryn Brown has been studying the migratory habitats of whales in the Cape Byron Marine Park and will soon be making up maps of their migratory routes through the park. ‘This information will be used to more accurately determine where whales are likely to be in the marine park and will help us gain a greater understanding of their habitat needs during migration,’ she said. ‘From the research we’ve conducted over the last few months we now know the mothers and calves like to travel close to the shore along the beach and in the bay. While the mothers are nursing the calves they are also teaching survival skills, such as tail-slapping. ‘Cape Byron provides one of the best sites in Australia for land-based whale watching. It’s incredibly special to watch and it’s fantastic to know members of the public may have more of a chance to see and learn about these incredible animals as we are able to pinpoint more accu-

rately the route of the whales through Cape Byron Marine Park.’ With her fieldwork due to end in early November. Kathryn and the other researchers received a treat last week when they saw the rare sight of a humpback mother feeding from a large school of fish. The whales are currently heading to the Southern Ocean where they will fill up on krill before heading north again next May to breed. They undertake the long migration using their reserves of blubber. Occasionally however a whale will feed from fish on its migration down the east coast if the opportunity presents itself. The study is being conducted with assistance from the NSW National Parks and Wildlife Service and the NSW Marine Parks Authority, and is being supervised by Associate Professor Peter Harrison, the director of the Southern Cross University Whale Research Centre, and Daniel Burns, a PhD researcher in the Centre.

Deep ecology workshop

John Seed, foreground, helping reforestation at Arunachala.

John Seed founded the Lismore-based Rainforest Information Centre in the early 80s and has been working since then for the conservation of nature and regeneration of degraded landscapes in many parts of the world. In the late 80s with another local, John Button, he initiated the reforestation of a mountain called Arunachala, one of the most sacred places in India. John also facilitates experiential deep ecology workshops around the world. Of these he says: ‘Every indigenous culture includes rituals and cer-

emonies whereby the human community is reminded of our interconnectedness with the rest of the Earth community, our relations with other species, with the living Earth. Deep ecology workshops consist of processes that allow us to shed the illusion of separation from Nature.’ John is offering a workshop at Byron Bay the weekend of November 7-9. It is a benefit with all fees going to the reforestation of Arunachala. For details see www.rainforestinfo.org.au/deep-eco/fliers/ byron1.jpg or call 6689 7519.

David Leser looks forward to interviewing David Marr

Art and censorship under review David Marr is one of the finest journalists working in Australia today. To my mind he is probably the finest, a public intellectual without peer. You may not agree with all he says but there is barely a subject on which he hasn’t touched in his more than 30 years in journalism that doesn’t bear the hallmarks of his trademark intelligence, insight, flair and wit. He has been editor of the National Times newspaper, a reporter with the Bulletin magazine, the presenter of ABC Radio National’s Arts Today program and ABC Television’s Media Watch, as well as a reporter with the ABC’s highly acclaimed Four Corners program. He has won the coveted Walkley Award on four separate occasions. David is also the author of several books, including Barwick, The Ivanov Trail, Dark Victory – an epic pageturner co-written with Marian Wilkinson about the Howard government’s treatment of asylum seekers – as well as Patrick White: A Life, for which he won several awards for non-fiction. In his current incarnation he is feature writer and columnist for the Sydney Morning Herald, regularly wading

children embroiled him this year in one of the most furious debates about art and pornography this country has seen. As a former colleague of David’s I know what an unerring eye he has for a great story, and this one was – and remains – a cracker of a story. It has everything in it – art, politics, sex, the media and, of course, the rights of children. Did Henson go too far with his photographs of naked children? Is there a new witchhunt on in Australia? Should the artist care about who he or she offends? Was the prime minister right to weigh into the debate? What is our problem with photos of naked children and should they be banned? These and many more questions will be addressed when David and I sit down together on November 9 for an hourlong chat. I look forward to seeing as many of you there as possible. ■ The Northern Rivers Writers

Back: St Finbarr’s School Captain Julian Vidal, Relieving Principal Byron Bay High Ian Davies, St Finbarr’s School Principal John Wilson, Byron Bay High School Captain Harry Warnes.

Darcy Condon, festival organiser for Splendour in the Grass, last week presented St Finbarr’s Catholic Primary School and Byron Bay High School with cheques for over $12,800. The funds are the profits from the parking at the Splendour in the Grass festival this year. Over the two day festival, over 20 school parent volunteers parked about 2,500 cars each day.

‘We’re happy to say that both schools have put their hands up to help us run the carpark at the new site next year,’ said Splendour general manager Darcy Condon. ‘We’ll also be looking for schools from the north of the shire to get involved as well so they too can get a slice of this fundraising pie.’ The Splendour parking is a major part of each school’s an-

nual fundraising efforts. ‘Parking revenue from a number of local festivals this year, along with support from Crighton Properties Pty Ltd, has provided enough funds to build adedicated play area for our early year students. This area will cater for creative play complete with new sand pit and beautiful new landscaping,’ said St Finnbar’s School Forum Chair Anne Leitch. www.echo.net.au

The flow of CSF is vital to the optimal functioning of the nervous system. It washes away toxins, acts as a shock absorber and helps the cells communicate. When dural torsion is present this restricts the flow of fluid. This results in poor concentration, fatigue and back pain. A very powerful yet gentle chiropractic technique to restore this balance is Sacro- occipital technique (SOT). To make an appointment at Byron Chiropractic with Bruce or Brent call 6685 8159.

Next gen hair reduction IPL how does it work? Intense Pulse Light treatments work by sending intense light through the tissue to damage the bulb and prevent the hair from growing back. Effective on dark hair, it often leaves behind ‘fluffy’ red and white hair.

Reel Mums Love Brideshead The film for November’s Reel Mums program is Brideshead Revisited, starring Emma Thompson, Matthew Goode, Hayley Atwell, Ben Whishaw and Michael Gambon. The film is an evocative and poignant

story of forbidden love and the loss of innocence, set in pre-World War II England. It tells the story of young, middle-class Charles Ryder’s involvement with the aristocratic Marchmain family over a period of 20 years. Based on the acclaimed novel by Evelyn Waugh, the film version transforms one of the quintessential novels of the 20th century into one of the grandest, most enriching films of 2008. Thursday at the Byron Cinemas.

You probably thought it would never happen, and knowing Steve Balbi, I would have sworn that it certainly never would. Lots of water has passed under the proverbial bridge since Noiseworks shot to mainstream fame in 1986 with their debut single No Lies, which instantly became an ARIA top 20 hit. After a decade or more of separation, the boys are back together, playing again and even contemplating putting down an album. Those edgy young boys are now chilled out blokes united by a passion for playing. â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;It did surprise us,â&#x20AC;&#x2122; Balbi remarked. â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;When you sit back and think about it, people have been working hard for the last decade, we were kids, but we are grown up â&#x20AC;&#x201C; on the whole, these are the people that we grew up

withâ&#x20AC;Ś itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s kind of weird but it seems like exactly the same crowds at the same gigs, they are all there!â&#x20AC;&#x2122; For Balbi, finding his way back to â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;the bandâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; was something of a personal homecoming. â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;We got together and I wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t quite 20 â&#x20AC;&#x201C; so getting back together, well, it was like if you havenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t seen your brother or sister for years, there was lots of water under the bridge but lifeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s too shortâ&#x20AC;Ś although under all the water under the bridge there is a lot of amazing experiences!â&#x20AC;&#x2122; Steve was reminded of what an extraordinary career his band had when he was moving house recently. â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;I wanted to cull back all the stuff I had, I went through all the Noiseworks memorabilia and itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s really precious, we did well, having said that it was what it was, and I think itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a better band now than it was

was then, if we were to make another record then it would be better, we have some really beautiful material, lifeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s been on our side, if weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d made a record now, it would have been more of a rock thing.â&#x20AC;&#x2122; Steve Balbi and fellow band member Justin Stanley left Noiseworks to set up Electric Hippies. The diversity of musical interest meant the guys in the band were always setting up side projects. â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s why Noiseworks broke up â&#x20AC;&#x201C; I was dying in that band just being a bass player and Justin and I were allowed to do an album here and there, although when youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re in a band youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re not allowed to look at another band!â&#x20AC;&#x2122; Justin is the only original Noiseworks member who wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t be joining the band for their tour. â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Justin is great, heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s living in the States, last time we got

together and we wrote a bunch of songs â&#x20AC;&#x201C; I love Justin, heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s one of my best mates. Sometimes when heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s here, we get a studio and itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s just so fluent.â&#x20AC;&#x2122; Noiseworks hit Coolangatta Hotel on Saturday and Sunday for two shows. Tickets are on sale now from the venue, www.oztix.com.au or phone 1300 762 545.

A bloke regains consciousness and finds himself manacled and spread-eagled on a table in a dimly lit dungeon. Above him is a giant blade. It swings like a pendulum and rips his stomach to shreds. Blood everywhere. And that’s just for starters. Next up is the hero detective. His head is jammed into a sealed glass cube which begins to fill with water. It’s unbreakable, of course, so you know what he does to save himself from drowning? He pulls a pen from the pocket of his trousers (I know, I never carry one there either), hollows it out and rams it into his windpipe. You’ve got to admit, that shows a lot of enterprise, but I barely had time to fully appreciate it before a pretty blonde was decapitated in another dimly lit dungeon. At that point I was distracted by something burrowing into my neck. After a few minutes of frenzied probing, I excavated what was a tick from behind my ear – it must have travelled with me all the way from Goonengerry. The darkness of the cinema didn’t help, but, having done it before, I managed to get it onto my left thumbnail then steamrolled it with my right. The crisp sound of its abdomen bursting filled me with inordinate satisfaction… there are degrees of sadism, I guess. Returning to the dimly lit dungeons, I found myself confused by the complex time shifts. There is a present, an immediate past and a more distant past, and the narrative, aimed squarely at an audience of computer game-playing, task driven young men, hops

But it is Toby Pommy gangsters are always Kebbell’s Johnny Quid, the Eastenders, awright?

from one to the other with hateful cleverness. The genre is not for everyone, but a good horror flick – and this one is expertly made – can be a lot of fun, but there is something deeply disturbing going on here and I feel some shame in admitting that I stayed until the end. I was intrigued and wanted to know who would win. The last victim meets his squelchy death in the classic walls-closing-in-from-all-sides torture, and, though morally outraged by the nastiness, I was also unsettled by being made aware of the dimly lit dungeon that is hidden in my brain. Australian Leigh Whannell and Malaysian James Wan have reportedly made $23.8 million in the last two years from their cult serial, which they claim is finalised with this instalment – but I reckon you can bet pounds to peanuts that there will be a Saw VI. ~ John Campbell Federal Film Club presents Arika Kurosawa’s

Television Guide

FRIDAY 7

THURSDAY 6

WEDNESDAY 5

1. A new series of the sitcom Scrubs is getting airings on Prime, albeit mainly late at night and in several different time slots during the week. The chopping and changing of scheduled programs at the last minute has become so rife that even this TV Guide has little confidence that what we print on Tuesday will still be accurate by the end of the week. The commercial stations reschedule without warning, trying to get a jump on each other. Fear of advertisers presumably drives this hair-trigger reaction to ratings, but the channels might try thinking of viewers rather than advertisers. Sure, the ads pay for free-to-air TV, but if the content gets so unreliable that viewers give up watching and buy DVDs or download their favourite shows from the web then the channels will be busted anyway. 2. Fred Zinnemanâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s film of Robert Boltâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s superlative play A Man For All Seasons is the standout movie of the week (ABC2, Saturday 8.30pm). Paul Schofield plays Sir Thomas More.

Samantha Gowing was 20 years old when her fatherâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s horse won the Melbourne Cup. His hand gripping hers, she watched as What A Nuisance came hurtling over the finish line â&#x20AC;&#x201C; and even, later on, meeting the Prince and Princess of Wales could not compete with that entrancing moment. This was the Before part of Samâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s life. As an even younger child she would fall asleep over chocolate souffles in her fatherâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s restaurant, 2am and the air thick with smoke from his cognacaccompanying cigarettes at shiftâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s end. A self-educated man, Dennis Gowing went from the car trade into stud farms, race horses, art collections and eventually Jacksonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s restaurant in Toorak via a stint as a television personality; he became restaurateur, according to Sam, â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;by default and by discernmentâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;. It was almost inevitable that Sam and her brothers would carry on the tradition though, in Samâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s case, not before a Fine Arts degree she never completed, a kimonowearing period as maitre dâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; in a Japanese restaurant (she had been studying Japanese since she was nine); a motorbike accident putting an end to that; her own catering business with friends. The accident led her toward yoga and Pilates (a foretelling, perhaps), though when her father became ill she was, to use her expression, â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;recruited back into the foldâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;. By now it was Gowings in East Melbourne, a fine-dining, two-and-a-half-hatted establishment doing 85 covers a night. Sam, loving it, threw herself into it with vigour until the late 80s, when Fine Dining was suddenly what people no longer wanted â&#x20AC;&#x201C; or could afford. This was the era when pubs transformed their dining spaces into fashionable bistros serving up â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;contemporary Australian cuisineâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; (Caesar

salads, salt and pepper squid, pumpkin and fetta combinations), and the Grace Darling Hotel Samâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s family acquired was one of the forerunners. At the tender age of 24 there she was a publican â&#x20AC;&#x201C; and for the ensuing seven years she and her brother ran this bluestone hotel built in 1854, steering it into a multi-faceted dining emporium complete with acoustic venue where the likes of The Waifs, Linda and Vika Bull and Stephen Cummings were launched. Some of her fatherâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s glorious art collection â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Clifton Pugh, Tim Storrier â&#x20AC;&#x201C; hung from the walls. Those were the hard-living hard-drinking days of parties and wine launches, a 3am licence and unprecedented outside dining, pizzas at midnight, coffee and cigarettes for breakfast. Seeing Sam now â&#x20AC;&#x201C; the After period â&#x20AC;&#x201C; I find it hard to imagine. Small and blonde and glowing, this is a woman whose degree in Nutritional Health Science has turned her into a culinary nutritionist; a yoga and Pilates instructor; a teacher of Japanese cooking; a campaigner for organics well before became the word became fashionable. She works at Gwinganna and takes people on wellness retreats to Sri Lanka; she is up at 5am, steaming broccoli with tamari and ginger for breakfast. Having moved to Byron Bay for her â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;physical and spiritual healthâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;, she still commutes to Melbourne where she does cooking demonstrations at the Prahran markets and consults as nutritionist at the Grand Hyatt. With half a lifetime of food, hospitality and charm in her blood, she has managed to transform the passion and the instinct for all into a way to help others eat better and feel better â&#x20AC;&#x201C; and I have the sense she has only just begun.

Level 1, 89 Jonson Street, Byron Bay 6680 8158 (must present coupon) India captured the world title this week thanks to Viswanathan Anand, but India’s less-publicised four gold medals at the World Youth Championships in Vietnam also serve to indicate that the future of Indian chess is in safe hands. India dominated the medal table in Vung Tau, with only China offering a challenge and traditional superpowers such as Russia and the US trailing badly. Croatia surprisingly captured the two U/18 golds but India took first place in the next three age divisions. India’s success in Vietnam is directly related to Anand’s success – over the past decade the so-called Anand Boom has seen hundreds of thousands of young players around India taking up the game, many leaving school and turning professional as preteens. The members of Australia’s 26-strong delegation were mostly situated mid-field. Melbourne’s Anurag Sannidhanam finished

Sport with Eve Jeffery Byron running group builds fitness and strength The Byron Bay Running Group is a collection of people who head out every Monday and Thursday under the watchful eye of fitness trainer Stephanie Stone. The running group have been meeting up for over 5 months now and they are currently 12 strong and they would like to invite everyone to join them to experience the joy of running. The running group welcomes both beginner and experienced runners. ‘There are three members of the group that came to the group who had never really run before,’ says Stephanie, who has been a personal trainer for six years. ‘They were wanting to get into running and learn the correct technique. These 3 are now running up to the lighthouse and back without stopping and completed their first 10K fun run two weekends ago.’ The group is open to anyone between the ages of 16-60 years, though if you have been running for a while and you are fit to run and are over 60 years you are welcome, though it is recommended that after 60, a health screening test should be conducted before starting any new fitness regime. The runners meet on the

peace pole grassy side of the surf club every Monday and Thursday morning at 5.55am to be off and running by 6am and depending on the level of participants’ running ability and fitness, the group usually run for 50 minutes in total followed by a comprehensive stretch-down for all major muscle groups. Usually the group has options regarding how far they can run, these include a 5km, 8km, or 10k turn around. Monday mornings are usually a longer slower distance run that develops the aerobic endurance energy system, while Thursday mornings is a mixture of interval training to develop the anaerobic energy system and consists of more speed and strength training in the form of sprints, hill repeats, short bursts of running followed by a rest period. This session also includes more strength based training including, push-ups, tricep dips, abdominal work, as well as leg and butt sculpting. Runners who are interested can turn up on a Monday or Thursday or to find out more contact Stephanie on 0414 910 794, or visit: www.steppingstone.net.au.

Rosebank kids kick their way to Sydney Dave Hughes, who worked tirelessly with them over the past few months, forging them into a beautifully cohesive unit and developing their skills. This is the third time Rosebank have been to Sydney for the competition and they have done progressively better each time. In 2005 they were fourthplace getters and in 2007 came a very close second. The opportunity to travel to Sydney and compete would not have been possible without the fundraising efforts of the parents and students, and the support of the local business community. The school would like to thank all of the people involved and in particular extend its gratitude to Greg Price of The Rosebank champs pictured with sponsor Greg Price from Elders in Bangalow, team coach Elders Real Estate of Bangalow who provided major sponsorDave Hughes and acting principal Ray Crane, back at their school after their championship ship for the team. win at Homebush. Photo Kim Shailes. Rosebank Primary School overcame the tyranny of distance recently to become joint State Premiers in the Small Schools Soccer Knockout competition held in Sydney. After defeating a number of local teams in the region including Newrybar, Empire Vale and Broadwater, the North Coast Champions then flew off to Sydney to face the

best schools in the state. In the semi-final match Rosebank had a convincing win against Central Tilba, 3 nil. The final match was much more competitively fought against a very strong Curlewis Public School, with both sides having opportunities to score. With no extra time or penalty shootouts, it ended in a nil all draw.

The result was a fantastic one for the school of 57 students and reflected the spirit of the competition. Given that the team comprised students from year 3 to year 6, the team was unanimous in citing ‘teamwork’ as the key element that took them all the way in the competition. It is also a credit to the coaches Renate Seiwert and

Newrybar PS breaks state record

Crankin’ what’s happening surfside

The Newrybar Public School’s relay team returned from the NSW State Athletics Carnival in Homebush Sydney triumphant. The team not only received the Nigel Bagley trophy for their win in the small schools 4 x 100m relay, they broke the record for the event in a time of 55.62 seconds. The previous record of 55.72 was held by Tharbogang PS, near Griffith, since 2003. This race is open to small schools across the state with an enrolment between 30-54 students. Newrybar has 39 students from kindergarten to Year 6 which qualifies them for the event. The team, Jaiden Jones, Jackson Hagley, Angus Page and Taylor Oishi ran in a series of heats throughout the day. Newrybar teacher and the team coach Mitch Grivins, couldn’t believe the time when they’d won their first heat, it was the second fastest time of the day. This was the third attempt by these boys to win this event, so breaking the record as well as the race victory was the cherry on the icing. To reach the final at Homebush the team qualified at district, zone and regional carnivals throughout the year. Getting to Sydney was a school effort as the composition of the team changed

over the course of events due to absence and injury. Other members who helped the boys to the final were Dexter Oelrichs, Bethany Hulbert and David Lumley. While Newrybar school has had representatives at state championships in cross country, running, swimming and cricket, they have been trying to qualify to compete in the relay for the past 8 years. The school is very proud of our students and this remarkable achievement. The whole community are happy for the team who have been training hard and their parents who have been most supportive in seeing their children succeed at school sports.

Lennox Nippers sport new look The Lennox Head Nippers are off to a great start for the 2008 summer season, with 68 boys and 96 girls. The huge influx of younger Nippers this year can be attributed to the super team of Age Managers who volunteer their time each week to teach the kids surf skills and surf education. The club has been running a run swim run for the kids every week, so most of the Nippers are proficient and able to compete in carnivals if they want to and the club’s first Junior Branch Carnival will be held at Cabarita on Sunday November 23.

This year’s Nippers and their families, pictured, are looking very smart wearing new club shirts donated by Lois Buckett Real Estate. Lois Buckett, who donated relay vests and boogie boards to the club last year, said that

she wanted to make a contribution that would build community spirit and support sun safety. She has donated all of the Age Managers shirts and substantially subsidized the cost of the club shirts for the junior members.

The Nippers would like to thank Lois Buckett for her ongoing support of kids and surf life saving. Lennox Nippers starts at 9am sharp, and will run a swim for all members at 8:30am.

Feed-in tariff bright idea The Nature Conservation Council of NSW urges Australian governments to commit to a national gross solar feed-in tariff. ‘A solar feed-in tariff is a practical way for Australia to reduce its greenhouse gas emissions and move towards a more sustainable, less coal-dependent energy future,’ Cate Faehrmann, executive director of the Nature Conservative Council of NSW, said. ‘Households have shown their strong support for solar energy with a bigger than ex-

pected surge in applications for the current rebate for solar panels. However, it is time governments helped take this popular support to the next level and provide financial incentives for returning solargenerated power to the grid. ‘Our political leaders can empower ordinary people to help combat climate change by producing zero emissions power. ‘A gross solar feed-in tariff could help turn community members and groups into mini clean-energy providers.’

Green building funds Justine Elliot, local MP, has called on local commercial building owners to take advantage of the Rudd Government’s new $90 million Green Building Fund which offers dollar-for-dollar support up to $500,000. The Green Building Fund will help tackle climate change by reducing the energy consumed in the operation of commercial office buildings. ‘The Green Building Fund is aimed at owners of existing commercial office buildings, and will support retro-fitting and retro-commissioning projects that reduce energy consumption,’ Ms Elliot said. ‘Under the fund, successful applicants will receive dollarfor-dollar support through grants ranging from $50,000 to $500,000. ‘Eligible projects can include upgrades to common area lighting, and heating, ventilation and air-conditioning systems. ‘Improvements to building fabric through glazing and shading, or investment in monitoring equipment or control systems to improve the energy efficiency of the build-

ing may also be covered. ‘The Government is keen to include projects involving small, lower grade buildings where there is a significant opportunity for improvement.’ Ms Elliot said grants are also available to develop the knowledge, skills or capability of those involved in operating commercial office buildings, to improve energy efficiency and reduce emissions. Grants of up to $200,000 will be available to relevant industry organisations, on a dollar-fordollar basis. ‘We all have an obligation to contribute in the fight to reduce greenhouse gas emissions and this is an opportunity for local businesses to be involved.’ The program is the third and final element of the Rudd Government’s $240 million Clean Business Australia suite. For further information on the Green Building Fund program visit AusIndustry’s website www.ausindustry.gov.au call the AusIndustry hotline 13 28 46 or email the hotline at hotline@ausindustry.gov. au

New pokie laws lack bite Greens MP and gambling spokesperson Lee Rhiannon has warned that new poker machine laws announced by Gaming Minister Kevin Greene could result in an increase in poker machine numbers in some local government areas (LGAs). ‘The government spins these new laws as a win for problem gamblers, but they barely challenge the status quo. There are even some sweeteners here for the gambling industry,’ Ms Rhiannon said. ‘Gambling venues in LGAs with low numbers of electronic gaming machines can now purchase up to 20 extra machines without a social impact assessment. ‘In LGAs with a large number of poker machines the government should be moving to cut back the number of machines. But Gaming Minister Kevin Greene is only promising no further overall expansion in numbers. ‘The new laws are an oppor-

tunity lost. They should have set long-term targets to dramatically reduce the number of poker machines in NSW. ‘The government could have banned ATMs from gambling venues and given local councils a greater role in regulating gambling. ‘Caps imposed in 2001 have only led to a slight reduction in the number of poker machines in NSW and spending per head on machines continues to climb. ‘The government could have also initiated “buy back” arrangements with existing licensees to cut the number of machines available to problem gamblers. ‘NSW should follow Victoria’s lead and give local government a far more significant role in determining EGM limits as part of the planning process, after a proper assessment of social impacts. ‘Some Victorian local councils, in consultation with residents, have restricted pokies below existing caps.’

Backlash defamation laws, but we guess Councillors will have to learn irony to convey their subtle hints of unhappiness at performance. Reading Mark Antony’s funeral speech in Shakespeare’s Julius Caesar would be a good place to start.

It’s up to the Americans how they want to run a presidential election, but we think the candidates spending over a billion dollars to win the office is just a tad profligate. See the breakdown at the Center for Responsive Politics site www. opensecrets.org. Why not just toss a coin and give the money to the millions of Americans who can’t afford health care in the land of the free? ■ ■ ■ ■

Every dog has his day, at Federal it was Saturday. An incredible array of K9 talents were on display at the 7th annual Federal Party in the Park, Best In Show, Dog Talent Quest. We saw amazing feats: relentless flea hunting, advanced bottom sniffing, owners leg humping, unassisted siestering, and first class liver treat swallowing. Miniature Foxy Panda shows how he overcame his diminutive stature using a conveniently placed human, in this case his life partner Phil Levy. More pictures in Echo news extra gallery at www.echo.net.au. Photo Jeff ‘Old Dog, No Tricks’ Dawson.

While little kids and families had fun performing the American Halloween rituals on Friday evening, we’ve had reports of older children damaging property and behaving like complete yobs later in the night. One Mullum chap arrived home to find ‘my property, garden and car damaged… I arrived to a street battle of eggs, flour and shaving cream. The gangs were large and threatening in their numbers and residents in my street, some elderly, were hiding inside their homes scared. Next year I will be taking time off work at my own expense to defend my property.’ ■ ■ ■ ■

It’s about time they pulled the literati into line, and in Britain they’re not afraid to do so. According to the latest on Ananova.com, East Cambridgeshire District Council has forced Royal Standard pub landlord Richard Whitmore to call time on the Turning Point poetry group because he has an entertainment licence for only singing and not speaking. Mr Whitmore said: ‘It’s trivial and pathetic. We’ve got a licence for 200 burly men to bounce around to whatever music they want, but not for a small number of quiet people to have a talk.’ Well yes, but there could be blank verse involved.

One piece of good news from recent council meetings is that public access will be recorded again, so that councillors and staff may have the benefit of community wisdom. The other news is that the long-awaited Byron LEP is to go on public exhibition – assuming that the state government planners allow it. We suspect there will be a feeding frenzy over some of its provisions.

Ever wonder if you’re turning into your parents? According to research from the University of New England, there’s a 41% chance you could be. A team of researchers led by psychologist John Malouff aggregated

the results of hundreds of studies on human behaviour and found that 41% of human behaviour – good or bad – could be accounted for by genetics. So perhaps it’s no weird delusion when you look in the mirror and see your mother’s smile on your face.
