Bruns fest begins with a bang World turtle conference comes to Australia Jann Gilbert

A big crowd turned out last Saturday night to watch the fireworks display at Brunswick Heads to mark the start of the 49th Brunswick Festival of the Fish and Chips. Called so because the festival involves woodchopping and fishing, the Fish and Chips got under way on the Sunday with its fishing competition for junior and senior anglers. The main feature of the festival,

the international Woodchop Carnival, begins this Wednesday in Banner Park. Events include underhand and standing block chopping, sawing and tree. Events are in single and teams format, including relays, plus the popular State of Origin event on Saturday. The Australian and New Zealand women’s teams will compete in a re-

Turtles hold an iconic place in Australian Aboriginal and European culture. Historically, many coastal communities have depended on sea turtles as a source of protein, and they feature in the mythology of many coastal tribes. Marine habitats in Australia are a sea turtle hot zone. Six of the world’s seven species including Flatback, Leatherback, Loggerhead, Hawksbill, Green, and Olive Ridley turtles occur in Australian waters. They occupy near shore habitats as well as open ocean habitats around the continent. All species are threatened – being listed from ‘vulnerable’ to ‘critically endangered’. Marine turtles are actually reptiles that have lived in the ocean for over 100 million years and they have changed little in that time. Once abundant in numbers, by the late 1970s the widespread decline of sea turtle populalay of nine competitors each night on tions began to alarm biologists.

exchange of information on sea turtle biology and conservation. Now in its 29th year, the symposium has been held annually ever since, and continues to grow in diversity and numbers of delegates attending. This year is the first time the symposium has been held in Australia, and indeed the southern hemisphere, and Australian Seabird Rescue (ASR) turtle specialists are excited at the prospect of showcasing their activities to such a large and significant sea turtle meeting. ‘This is a unique opportunity for us to meet and exchange information with interstate research teams and rehabilitators as well as experts from the international turtle conservation community,’ says ASR North Coast coordinator Rochelle Ferris. ‘ASR is also planning to host a number of delegates to tour the WildlifeLink turtle hospital in Ballina and is looking forward to showing off the Far North Coast during their visit.’ In taking the reins for this year’s event the Australian organising committee handed out hundreds of continued on page 8

Businesses aim to tackle environmental issues A group of regional businesses intends to tackle environmental issues and enjoy cost savings and improved performance at the same time. These businesses have formed a cluster for the Northern Rivers Sustainability Advantage program, a State government initiative which provides support and assistance. Participating businesses include Brookfarm, Byron Bay Cookie Company, Cawarra Cosmetics, Feros Care, Lismore City Council, Lismore Workers Club, Norco, NSW Sugar, Rochdale

Accounting, Southern Cross University, Summerland Credit Union and North Coast Institute of TAFE. Since signing up for the program in June last year, each business has had a ‘management diagnostic’ to assess current environmental performance and opportunities for improvement. North Coast Institute of TAFE has been involved with the program since 2006, and shared some key tips and lessons. Alicia Bales, TAFE’s Sustainability Programs Manager, said, ‘We have included sustainability and the

environment into existing structures as we need the right systems to make on-the-ground progress in a large organisation like TAFE. We now have OH & S & E (occupational health and safety and the environment) committees that are being trained and supported to identify and manage environmental risks and hazards as well as workplace safety.’ Lismore City Council gave the group access to their procurement policy, which includes sustainability

The Byron Bay Herb Nursery staff were all able to enjoy the beach at their Christmas picnic day with thanks to the availability of Byron Shire Council’s Free Wheeler beach chair and assistance from staff in transporting the chair to the special Christmas picnic at Brunswick Heads. ‘Our workers had a fantastic time in the wheelchair; it was a great way to end the year,’ said Teresa White from the Byron Bay Herb Nursery. Byron Shire’s Aged and Disability Officer Karen Ingleman said, ‘The Free Wheeler beach chair has been designed to be pushed over the sand with ease, and can also be used on the water’s edge. Most of us enjoy swimming at the beach and Council is committed to providing access for all the community. ‘Providing the beach wheelchair is another step in ensuring the Byron’s natural assets

are accessible for everyone to enjoy. Clarkes Beach is a great location for the freewheeler because of the accessible facilities for people with a disability, including a shower, a picnic table, car parking and public toilets.’

In 2009 Flickerfest comes of age and celebrates its 18th birthday as Australia’s premier international short film festival. Flickerfest is Australia’s only Academy Award accredited short film festival and, as such, attracts a high calibre of entries each year from around the world. Now in its 10th year in Byron Shire, Flickerfest comes to town between January 23 and 25 and, running concurrently, is the inaugural Byron All Shorts (BAS) Short Film Competition. Shane Rennie, production and tour coordinator with Flickerfest, said the response from local filmmakers for the inaugural BAS competition had been fantastic. ‘With filmmakers having only four weeks opportunity to enter we are very happy to have received nearly 50 films in our inaugural year,’ says Shane. ‘We have some great entries, from SAE students to wellknown Northern Rivers filmmakers, and we look forward to growing this competition over coming years.’ The final selection for BAS will be announced the week before the festival. The 2009 Flickerfest National Tour program, featuring an impressive selection of multi-award winning international shorts, begins on Friday January 23 at the A&I Hall in Bangalow with opening night drinks at 7.30pm and screenings (International 1) beginning at 8.30pm.

Car rental company cools it carbonwise Byron Bay-based Earth Car Rentals has become the first car rental company in Australia to incorporate mandatory carbon offsets on all car rentals and offset the greenhouse gases from its own business operations, effectively making it carbon neutral, according local company Coolplanet. The new move comes amid a growing concern for the environment and as a means of reflecting the business’s green credentials. A new pricing scheme which reflects the carbon offsets will come into effect from January 2009, along with details of the carbon abatement projects the surcharge will be spent on. Earth Car Rentals has employed local carbon offsetting and environmental services company, Coolplanet, to abate its carbon emissions by investing in a range of ‘Verified Emissions Reduction’ (VER) projects from government accredited sources. ‘We found Earth Car Rental’s in-house carbon emissions were very low due to their already existing environmental focus, although we identified further low-cost energy saving measures for the business, recommended a range of nationally and internationally

sourced carbon credits and have now certified Earth Car Rentals as carbon neutral,’ said founder of Coolplanet, Daniel Harper. ‘Carbon credits are units of emissions reductions from carbon abatement projects that can be traded and are equal to one tonne of carbon dioxide equivalent prevented from entering the Earth’s atmosphere. Money raised through Earth Car Rentals’ new environmental measures will be spent on independently verified and

monitored carbon credits from national and international sources. ‘These carbon abatement projects will be chosen by the merit of their ability to offer permanent, additional and cost effective ways to reduce greenhouse gas emissions entering the atmosphere. Earth Car Rental owner Anna Parker said, ‘I think it’s great that we can support the environment as well as local businesses and set a precedent for the new direction that we

believe business needs to take – one which values the Earth as well as profits. The beauty of this scheme is that every customer will be collectively contributing towards improving our environment and passing on a message of environmental awareness.’ For further information about the carbon offsetting measures adopted by Earth Car Rentals, phone them on 6685 7472 or visit the Coolplanet website www.coolplanet.com.au.

Echo workspace gets a health and environment check Hans Lovejoy

How safe is your workplace? If you work inside, and particularly in an office, it may be worth a thought as to ventilation and the effect your electrical devices – particularly computers and photocopiers – have on your health and wellbeing. The Echo’s head office in Mullumbimby was recently given an environmental health and clinical ecology evaluation, and the results – apart from being informative – have prompted a few positive changes. ‘Levels of electro-magnetic radiation were measured and observations made regarding health hazard risks and strategies for minimisation,’ Adam Spinner from Natural Habitats told The Echo. According to Adam, the primary contributors to indoor air pollution within premises similar to The Echo’s is ozone emissions from photocopiers and electromagnetic radiation

www.echo.net.au

(EMR) from computers. The good news however, according to Adam, is that simple changes to improve a working environment are usually easy and cheap. ‘A number of household plants are effective as air purifiers removing VOC’s (volatile organic compounds) from the air,’ Adam said. ‘Boston ferns, for example can detoxify 1,000 micrograms of formaldehyde from the air in one hour. Other useful plants include peace lily, palms, philodendron, English ivy, drachea and chysanthemum.’ The Echo rents a number of indoor plants from Northern Rivers Plant Hire. Adam also says it’s important to allow as much ventilation and natural light in as possible. ‘Ventilation is the most effective and essential strategy for improving indoor air quality and the health of staff,’ Adam says. ‘This is most easily and effectively achieved simply by open-

ing windows whenever possible. During times of extreme heat and cold it may be best to establish a timetable plan for windows to be opened during tolerable periods. This may be from the start of the day in summer before the heat of the day increases and while any airconditioning is operating.’ Other strategies to improve your working space, according to Adam, include banning the use of any aerosols or fragrances, turning off copiers at night, and regular vacuuming and dusting. As for alternative and wholistic approaches, Adam claims there is some evidence to suggest crystals and salt lamps can help by acting as an ioniser. ‘It has been shown to promote melatonin production which inhibits cancer cell growth and helps with fatigue and headaches.’ The use of chemically based cleaning products can cause potential health problems, according to Adam. ‘White vin-

egar, bi-carb soda and eucalyptus oil can form the foundation of most cleaning requirements – chemical free branded products are also available. It is recommended to not store any food within 45cm of fluorescent lights or microwaves – it kills off any nutrients in the food product.’ From the report, The Echo made immediate changes to the positioning of the backup/ power batteries (UPS). ‘They emit radiation within a range of a few metres and should be located as far away from human work areas as possible,’ says Adam. ‘I would also consider the possibility of relocating the photocopiers in the art department or venting the emissions. These priority initiatives should ensure improved indoor air quality and reduced exposure to EMR.’ Enquiries to Natural Habitats 0405 072 616 or visit www. naturalhabitats.com.au.

Smoking and childhood cancers link New research by the Cancer Institute NSW has provided the strongest indication yet that smoking during pregnancy increases a child’s likelihood of developing cancer, according to NSW Minister Assisting the Minister for Health (Cancer) Jodi McKay. According to the minister, smoking during pregnancy is proven to cause lower birth

weight, premature birth, and admission of the baby to a neonatal intensive care unit. ‘Through this new research we have credible evidence that these known birth complications associated with smoking during pregnancy could also increase the risk of childhood cancers,’ Ms McKay said. The Cancer Institute linked the records of all births in

NSW between 1994 and 2005 with cases of cancer in NSW children over the same period. Of the 1.05 million recorded births, there were 948 cases of childhood cancer.

Spurring kids to write their best The Northern Rivers Writers’ Centre is busily putting together a program of workshops to stimulate writers at all stages of development. Where better to begin than with the younger members of our creative community? Saturday January 17 and 24 will offer two half day workshops aimed specifically at children from 8 to 12 years old. Digging for Treasure on January 17 is all about spurring kids to write their best story ever. Participants will have fun unearthing ideas deep inside themselves, then spinning them into solid gold stories. Along the way they’ll be given keys to inventing great characters, pearls of wisdom to hook readers, gems of knowledge to create a jewel of a plot and secret ways to polish the story till it shines. Award winning young adult author Melaina Faranda will lead the way, adding her magic elements of bizarre science, wicked wordplay and swashbuckling adventure. Where Do Ideas Come From? on January 24 is a rol-

licking inspirational workshop presenting fresh ways of using music, photos, movies, magazines, memory, free writing, dreams and the web to generate hot new stories.

Brave rescue saves three lives at Lennox Head Three people were rescued from the surf at Lennox Head last Sunday. Shortly after 6.30 pm on Sunday a young girl visiting the area from Katherine in the Northern Territory was playing in shallow water when she was knocked off her feet. She was unable to regain her footing and was taken out in a powerful rip. The girl’s father, 33 years, also from Katherine and her aunt, 27, from Toowoomba, Queensland, went to the girl’s aid but they were caught in the same rip and got into difficulties. Another member of the family went to their assistance and was able to rescue the woman with the aid of a surfboard. A middle-aged man walking on the beach saw the group in trouble and stripped off and

swam out to assist the group who were now some 100 metres off shore. He found the girl trying to support her father in helping him stay afloat and keep his head above the surface. The rescuer was able to bring the child and her father back to shore. Other beach-walkers ran down to a group of off-duty lifeguards who were training further down the beach and raised the alarm. Along with volunteer surf-lifesavers from the Lennox Head Surf Life Saving Club, the lifeguards responded to the scene with resuscitation and emergency equipment as well as activating emergency services. Surf rescue vehicles from Ballina and Lennox Head attended the scene as well as three ambulances from By-

ron Bay and Ballina as well as the Westpac Lifesaver Rescue Helicopter. An off duty ambulance paramedic on holidays in the area assisted the lifeguards in stabilising the three patients who were all treated for immersion. All three remained on oxygen and were placed in a lifeguard rescue vehicle and transported back to Lennox Head Surf Life Saving Club where they were met by ambulances. ‘I applaud the efforts of the members of the family and the public who rescued this group,’ said Stephen Leahy, Northern NSW Lifeguard Coordinator. ‘They have shown great courage, considering the conditions, and their efforts have certainly saved three lives. ‘I also want to recognise the quick response by the off duty

lifeguards and surf-lifesavers. Their rapid treatment will ensure that this family will make a full recovery. The surf club always makes certain that their equipment is ready to respond at any time day or night and it has certainly paid off.’ According to lifeguards, the conditions at the time were considered hazardous with large waves and powerful rips right along Seven Mile Beach. Beach conditions can be checked online at sites such as www.coastalwatch.com and it is always advisable to swim between flags and follow lifesavers’ directions.

Brisbane koala mascots to last year’s dispersing delegates. Incoming International Sea Turtle Society President, Dr Col Limpus, issued a challenge to go forth and photograph! So from Panama to Peru and Africa to Asia, delegates began snapping little ‘Brissie’ as they went about their turtle work. What began as a fun reminder has now become a part of the symposium (the ‘koala challenge’) and the amazing array of photos submitted so far can be seen on the website at www. turtlesbrisbane2009.org. President and co-founder of ASR, Marny Bonner, who attended the symposium in Miami in 2008 says, ‘It may seem a little bizarre that koalas were chosen as ambassadors for an international symposium on sea turtle biology and conservation, however koalas are uniquely Australian and, like sea turtles, iconic’. The 2009 symposium takes place from February 17 to 19 in Brisbane and will explore themes such as building communication, and networking on local, regional, and global scales. Its aim is to create links between communities and to connect policy makers at all levels with the latest information coming from sea turtle research and conservation programs. A number of associated meetings are to be held in the days preceding the main symposium and many of these are regionally focused including an Australian sea turtle mini symposium. The conditions that make Australia an epicentre of sea turtle activity also promote the existence of recreational and industrial fishing that, coupled with coastal and industrial development and turtle use by communities in some regions, has lead to concern about stocks of several species of turtle. In Australia (and the South Pacific generally) the main hu-

man-associated threats come from drowning (in fishing nets, crab pots float lines and shark nets); longlines (for carnivorous species such as Loggerheads); pollution (plastic bags resemble jelly fish and cause float syndrome or choking); boat strikes; habitat degradation; over-harvesting of turtles and eggs; and predation of eggs and hatchlings by foxes, feral pigs, dogs and goannas. However, ongoing conservation efforts between government, and community and industry groups have seen the steady building of a conservation ethic. In Northern Australia at least, sea turtles have

turtle experts in their area and from all over the world. Given that it’s also ‘turtle season’ ASR is keen to remind locals and vistors of a few turtle dos and don’ts. ‘There are a few simple things that people can do to help,’ says Rochelle. ‘Most importantly, they can program the ASR rescue hotline numbers into their mobile phone (6686 2852 and/or 0428 862 852) so they can immediately report any stranded turtle, hatchlings or turtle tracks on the beach. ‘Equally as important – never put a stranded turtle back in the water. Move it into the shade, cover it with a wet towel

‘Never interfere with hatchlings walking to the sea, simply stand by and guard them from dogs, four wheel drive vehicles, seabirds and children (who can’t seem to resist picking them up). Never dig up a turtle nest or “help” hatchlings out of a nest or stick a pole in the ground anywhere near a nest…’ become one of the most recognisable conservation icons. They have immense social, cultural and economic significance to Aboriginal people, are a draw card in the milliondollar tourist industry, and, in many places, are the ‘poster children’ for marine conservation initiatives. The mini symposium aims to get a jumpstart on learning about the local sea turtle populations and the people that are working to protect them. The symposium proper also offers training workshops, and oral and poster presentations on subjects as diverse as conservation though social, economic, cultural and legal pathways; breeding biology; bycatch and other mortality factors; genetics and stock recognition; and health, physiology and toxicology. In the leadup to the symposium ASR is encouraging anyone with an interest in turtles to register and hook up with

or shade it with your body. If you can, stay with the turtle until a rescuer arrives. This protects it from others putting it back in the water or an attack by dogs or seabirds, and makes it easier for the rescuer to find it. If you can’t stay with the turtle try tying a ribbon or something around the nearest tree to establish a location. ‘Never interfere with hatchlings walking to the sea, simply stand by and guard them from dogs, four wheel drive vehicles, seabirds and children (who can’t seem to resist picking them up). ‘Never dig up a turtle nest or “help” hatchlings out of a nest or stick a pole in the ground anywhere near a nest, and never leave a fire burning on the beach, ensure it is completely obliterated, because hatchlings are attracted by light and will walk into a fire.’ For further information on the symposium go to www. turtlesbrisbane2009.org. www.echo.net.au

BEC boosts local business Deep within Billinudgel lives an importer and wholesaler of baby’s and children’s gear. Western Bloc stocks over 500 retailers in Australia and New Zealand, this small family run company is slowly and surely taking flight. ‘We’ve been going two years now so we’ve got a strategic plan and we are more or less following it,’ said Director Peta Sollander, who runs the small family firm with her partner Damien West. ‘But we still need a lot of help along the way.

Local surfer opens fruit and veg store Byron Bay local surfer and musician Scott Wright has recently ventured into the fresh food business with his newly owned ‘Byron Bay Fruit and Veg Shop’. Sandwiched between the Black Dog Surf shop and the Bollywood Indian Restaurant the fresh fruit and veg shop provides a wide range of fresh produce and juices. Asked about his vision for the store Mr Wright said, ‘I will be working towards building up my business with the support of the local restaurants, community and international visitors. A major aim is to provide a venue for local

farmers to sell their produce. ‘I have both wholesale and retail options to suit my customers and have brought in the culinary talents of chef Anna Zuppero who is creating quite a stir with her gourmet salad range.’ Large orders of over $100 are given free delivery within Byron Shire and by promoting and selling in-season produce, Scott believes this will keep the prices down and give the big players the challenge of matching his prices. Originally from Sydney, Scott moved to Byron Shire over nine years ago. Besides healthy food, Scott’s

interests lie in surfing and songwriting. His original song ‘Take These Wings’ was featured recently in ‘Sportsworld’. Scott is passionate about the thriving music scene in Byron and supports local buskers by encouraging them to perform on his music bench on the front doorstep of his shop. ‘I have always been into music and believe any live music is better than the clichéd CDs you hear in stores,’ Mr Wright said ‘I always have a guitar handy here in the shop so if anyone wants to have a jam or busk in front of the store they are most welcome.’

New chair for NR tourism appointed Ms Suzie Coulston has been appointed Chair of the regional tourism authority Northern Rivers Tourism following the organisation’s Annual General Meeting in Byron Bay. As a returning Board member and former Deputy Chair, Suzie brings a wealth of experience to the role, particularly in the development of visitor services and tourism management in the Kyogle local government area. ‘I look forward to working with tourism stakeholders www.echo.net.au

throughout the region and beyond to highlight the profile of the Northern Rivers as a destination offering authentic experiences, practising sustainable tourism and demonstrating cross-industry partnerships,’ Ms Coulston said. ‘It is important for Northern Rivers Tourism to continue to build on existing opportunities such as the Rainforest Way and National Landscapes programs and strive to make the best use of emerging opportunities that encourage domestic and inter-

national visitors to stay longer and disperse throughout the region.’ The other appointments announced by the Board are Treasurer Colin Woodbry, Deputy Chair Brandon Saul, and Secretary Kristina Drapes. Ms Coulston praised the efforts of retiring Chair Gerd Beurich at the helm over the past three years. A regional tourism development conference for the Northern Rivers tourism industry is proposed for May of 2009.

Put garlic by the doorway, bring out the bell Volume 23 #31

Holiday letting controls Byron Shire Council must have been copping complaints about holiday letting because it has updated its notes on the subject on its website. In classic understatement Council says, ‘There is concern about the impact that unregulated holiday letting is having on residential amenity and on the cost of housing in the shire, particularly in Byron Bay.’ And why is it unregulated? Isn’t Council the regulatory authority here? Council goes on to note that it convened a holiday letting forum in Byron Bay in October 2005 ‘in an endeavour to engage the tourist accommodation industry and resident groups in examining possible solutions to various issues relating to holiday letting’. What it fails to note is that Councillors resisted coming to grips with the options and instead protected the interests of the holiday letting push. Three years later we still wait for regulation. The current Councillors resolved in October last year to adopt an ‘urban holiday letting precinct model’. Maps of the proposed precincts are on Council’s website and an information brochure is being prepared so the public has some idea of what’s proposed. You can also contact the Community Planning section on 6626 7126 to find out more. Council also resolved that ‘this form of tourism use’ be regulated by an approval system other than a development application. This proposal is part of the draft LEP currently with the Department of Planning as Council seeks permission to exhibit the document. How the state government will react to this proposed form of regulation is anybody’s guess, but surely it must have been lobbied by coastal councils seeking means of control in their residential areas. Council’s recognition of holiday letting as a ‘form of tourism use’ puts paid to the notion that it is just Mum and Dad making a few extra bucks. Maybe in the 1960s and 1970s, but now it is often absentee landlords gouging what they can out of the Bay’s residential amenity. Even some schoolies who rent a house in the hope of it being in a ‘party zone’ are disappointed to find they are disturbing a quiet neighbourhood. Obviously there are those holiday renters who will respect the local community and self-regulate their noise and hours. They are welcome visitors. The vandals should shove off elsewhere.

Wonders never cease Speaking of tourism, it is somewhat bizarre that at this time, in this climate, the tourism industry is gushing over the inclusion of the Great Barrier Reef ‘as Australia’s representative in Global New7Wonders of Nature Campaign’, along with Uluru. The Seven Wonders campaign is cute and fun – and who can resist being ranked there with the Kalahari Desert? – but the Reef has bigger problems than being famous. According to the most recent report from the Australian Institute of Marine Science (AIMS), ‘the biggest and most robust corals on the Great Barrier Reef (GBR) have slowed their growth by more than 14 per cent since the ‘tipping point’ year of 1990. ‘The data suggest that this severe and sudden decline in calcification is unprecedented in at least 400 years,’ said the report’s principal author Dr Glenn De’ath. The Reef may be one of the wonders that does cease. – Michael McDonald, editor

h no, he’s back. Just when you thought it was safe to go back to the news, that dreaded myopic dumpling face is there again, louring at you from the screen as if nothing had changed since, well, about 1978. I blame the voters; they may have thought they were getting rid of John Howard last year, but no-one remembered to load the gun with a silver bullet, let alone bury the body at the crossroads with a stake through his heart – although, of course, there may not have been one. In any case, his spectre is again stalking the media, taking advantage of the fact that it’s the silly season and the real prime minister is on holiday. Put garlic by the doorway and bring out the bell, book and candle: the undead has returned. Of course, much of it has been relatively harmless fun. Take, for instance, George W Bush in the last spasm of political death-throes awarding his little deputy sheriff yet another glittering bauble, the Presidential Medal of Freedom. As its name implies, this trinket belongs exclusively to the president in power; noone else has any say in the choice, so it should be taken as a mark of personal political payback rather than of any worthwhile achievement. It was not always thus; when Harry Truman inaugurated it, the medal was intended as a way of recognising foreign (ie non-American) war heroes. But then it was debased, at least in the eyes of the original recipients, by John Kennedy, who broadened the scope to include anyone who had contributed to the security or national interests of the United

O

States, or to world peace, or for significant public or private achievement. In other words, for just about anything. This led to such disparate types as Mother Teresa and Doris Day sporting the handsome accessory, and now our own Johnny is about to join them. He obviously thinks it very big deal, especially as he was asked to come to Blair House as a guest of the Bushes (pre-

self-appointed role of elder statesman and friend, mentor and guide to his beleaguered successors. This is not the first time, of course; not long ago he was warning Kevin Rudd of the danger of deficits and the long term consequences of going down that seductive path. There at least he was speaking from experience; as treasurer under Malcolm Fraser John Howard became

There is nothing in the reports that Turnbull has been seen late at night in his office sharpening up a wooden stake. by Mungo MacCallum sumably their last). Unfortunately the incoming Barack Obama had planned to move his family in at the same time, but what the heck. As he himself has emphasised, America only has one president at a time, and if Bush ranks Howard above himself, there’s nothing he can do about it. However Bush’s priorities did cause a bit of a stir among the commentariat; an American opined that Howard might actually be seeking political asylum from Australian voters while an Australian suggested that the Howards should abandon the 119 rooms of Blair House for a cell at Guantanamo Bay, so our Man of Steel could see firsthand the system he has been defending for all these years. At the time of writing, this idea has not been taken up. Pity. But the excitement of the forthcoming junket has obviously reinvigorated the wizened veteran, to the extent that he has now resumed his

something of a deficit specialist, not that you would have guessed from what he said as Prime Minister. But that’s all in the past; we must move on. And in doing so, Little Johnny has come up with a proposal so bizarre it is hard to believe it is not simple mischief-making. He has advised the maverick National Party senator, Barnaby Joyce, to find a way to move into the House of Representatives, and then to take a senior role on the coalition front bench. This can only be seen as code for knocking off his party’s present leader, the unimpressive Warren Truss, and setting himself up to be deputy prime minister in the still unlikely event of a change of government. Indeed, there is every reason to suppose that the move would make a change of government even more unlikely, because Joyce is not just a loose cannon within his own party; he is a super-National who believes

that the city slickers of the Liberal Party are to be treated with suspicion and kept at a distance, and that Malcolm Turnbull, as the slickest of all of them, is to be given the widest berth of all. In the last few months Joyce has publicly disagreed with Turnbull about Iraq, industrial relations, the Murray Darling, the government economic stimulus package, the infrastructure fund, the national schools curriculum and tax breaks for carbon sink plantations. Privately, he thinks Turnbull is wrong about just about everything else as well. The two of them can hardly bear to work in the same building. The idea that they could somehow convince the electorate they could work together as leaders of a united coalition is too fanciful for the rational mind to contemplate. And John Howard is the leader who, in office, placed such emphasis on the importance of maintaining unity within the coalition, who went around mouthing slogans like ‘disunity is death’. Yet here he is advocating his own party’s sworn enemy as the man to work with his Liberal heir. Admittedly Howard never liked Turnbull all that much either; could there, just possibly, be an element of malice and sabotage going on here? Surely not from Honest John. And of course there is nothing in the reports that Turnbull has been seen searching a street map of Wollstonecraft for a deserted crossroads, or that he has been seen late at night in his office sharpening up a wooden stake. After all, opposition members don’t take John Howard seriously these days. Well, do they?

Main street blues The land that forms part of the heritage building, the National Bank in Mullumbimby, has recently changed ownership. The struggle to prevent development of this portion of the heritage item, which allows for an aesthetic setting of the building, was effectively lost when planners needlessly allowed a subdivision of the land approximately seven years ago and the newly appointed heritage consultant chose to accept rather than challenge that dubious subdivision. There is a current DA for the site which expires August/September 2009. In my opinion the DA for the land allowed a building totally incongruous to Mullumbimby’s main street and if built it will degrade what has been achieved by the inspiring renovations to the hotel and Old Bakery buildings. Byron Bay has recently seen a monstrosity arise in the heart of their town which leaves many people in a state of disbelief and anger. I believe that a cement-rendered Grecian-columned two storey building jammed in as infill development on the site and ruining the aspect of a lovely old building will elicit a similar response. I am making a public appeal to the new owner of the land and DA to not build such a building on this site even though they have a legal right to do so. Previous plans exist that at least would be an improvement of the current DA or may we dream that as the open space frequented at Lu Lu’s Cafe is now overflowing with people, the new owner might consider the need for similar, profitable open-space usage of this street frontage site.

Parking pressure Yesterday while driving into town with a friend I noticed that some streets around the primary school were still zoned ‘No Parking’ at this time of year. Times of peak parking pressure are during school holidays, surely it’s not beyond the realm of possibility and imagination for Council to put a temporary plastic sleeve over the permanent signs reading ‘two hour parking’ or whatever is deemed appropriate when the school is not in use. It wouldn’t make a huge difference but would at least alleviate parking pressure on the basis of the monkey principle – being ‘Every little bit helps,’ www.echo.net.au

Bring the RTA to account The points made by Colin Cook in response to Don Page’s Environmental Accounting article are well made. Surely very few would dispute the need for greater environmental awareness and the need to assess the cost and impact in our region of RTA’s grandiose highway plans. But this concentration on environmental impacts has led to a significant down-grading of the importance of social, health and visual assessment impacts of infrastructure projects such as the T2E. The potential impact of the T2E upgrade on the social, and potentially the psychological, wellbeing of Northern Rivers residents, especially those in Newrybar, Bangalow and Ewingsdale, gets no consideration under the environmental accounting model. Indeed, RTA’s weightings given to the myriad of factors purportedly used in determining the preferred highway route focus on environmental issues to the neglect and detriment of social wellbeing, health and visual amenity of the largest residential area on the T2E’s route, namely Bangalow. Yet Bangalow was not inFay Bogg cluded in the RTA’s study area Brooklet so the impact on Bangalow

residents of increased noise, sleepless nights, the need to use air conditioning because windows cannot be opened due to road noise and verandahs become useless, 24 hour intersection lighting within 50 metres of Clover Hill and visible throughout the town are just not considered or taken into account. Not to mention diesel particulate pollution. Byron Shire Council has requested RTA to include Bangalow into the T2E Study Area, so far with no response from RTA, the State government, the opposition or Don Page. Environmental Accounting is all well and good but don’t let’s ignore the people. As our local member it is Don’s role to stand up on Bangalow’s behalf and help us fight RTA’s unjustified preferred route for the T2E passing within 200 metres of Bangalow, and help us get the route changed to a modified option D that will keep T2E out of the Emigrant Creek catchment (a legal requirement ignored by the RTA), avoid Bangalow, obviate the Arundel Hill cutting and potentially provide Byron Bay with its much needed bypass.

I refer to Colin Cook’s letter of January 6 concerning Don Page’s idea of a National Environmental Accounts system. Colin’s point that vigilance is required in the here-and-now is especially true. But how do we give effect to that vigilance? For it seems even with environmental legislation in place and a climate of political awareness, especially of water and water quality issues, critical infrastructure road projects can ride roughshod over compliance and get away with it. As Colin points out, how is it that the RTA can be allowed to put a six lane motorway through Emigrant Creek Water Catchment? This is a catchment with storage integral to the drinking water supply for 30,000 people; a catchment with protective environmental legislation under Ballina’s LEP; a catchment that will have 10% of its water harvesting facility given over to pollution from road surface run-off with the motorway in place! Why is it that the RTA has a licence to pollute our drinking water catchments? How can the RTA be brought into line?

said the monkey as he pissed into the sea. I also wondered would it be possible to allow the school to open its grounds to parking in holiday times (as the high school and St Finnbars do for events at the football ground) – it could mean a lot of extra parking and provide revenue for the school.

Return to Rapunzel Towers Nicqui Yazdi (Letters, January 6) is being a tad elitist to suggest that people need a degree in architecture to have an opinion on the design of a building. She even suggests residents don’t even have the right to judge this building... a very peculiar attitude. If Nicqui has a degree I think she should go back to school if she thinks this development is iconic. I think it could have been, but the local architect’s plans seem to have been compromised by the developer’s constraints. The foreshortened towers and few remaining curvy balconies seem tokenistic additions to the otherwise bland facade and roofline. Gaudi it aint!

■ Thanks to Nicqui Yazdi for entering the aesthetic debate re Rapunzel Towers – even if it’s to suggest that us detractors shouldn’t express our opinions. Nicqui’s optimism is enviable. She may be right in saying that Rapunzel Towers suits the people of Byron Bay – maybe it is me rather than Rapunzel Towers that doesn’t belong. Her use of the term ‘iconic’ is interesting. Would ‘iconic’ describe the Big Prawn in Ballina? Nicqui moved here because she thought people here wouldn’t express their opinions. Thankfully in this area people – including Nicqui – can and do. She expected us to be ‘artistically inclined and James Robinson-Gale non-judgemental’. In the case Possum Creek of this building it’s my artistic

like our own Krudd, owe their ongoing political survival to not pissing off those with a vested interest in unsustainable practice. Kyoto, carbon trading and, indeed, recent fiscal stimulatory packages, particularly to the auto industry, are all about business as usual with government subsidies. Putting one’s faith in political saviours is a recipe for disappointment and that includes Barack Obama. Their major skill is talking you into voting for them.

In a relatively short space of time we watched as almost our entire species became environmentally concerned. Now we are watching the growth of the response to that knowledge. As one would expect, the longer people have that knowledge the more sophisticated the response becomes. A lot of us around here have had that knowledge for some time now and the bullshit filters are quite finely tuned.

inclinations that lead to my judgement. Nicqui asks if we’ve been to Spain and checked out Antoni Gaudi’s work – I have, and I love it. Rapunzel Towers in Byron Bay has as much to do with Gaudi as the Leyland Brothers’ service station at Tea Gardens has to do with Uluru. Nicqui’s suggestion that we wait till the building is finished before judging it is also pertinent to Gaudi. Millions have been inspired by Gaudi’s most famous, controversial and beautiful building, the still unfinished Segrada Familia, which has been under construction for over 100 years. Nicqui recommends that I get a degree in architecture. I don’t have a degree, but do know the phrase ‘truth to ma-

terials’ – a concept that the ‘architect’ of the Rapunzel Towers should look into. A real stone tower won’t sit on a plate glass shopfront. A stone tower with a large plate glass shopfront in its base looks fake. It is fake. I’d like to live in a town where ‘fake’ and ‘iconic’ were mutually exclusive. I admit to doing my best to turn a blind eye to the architecture around Clarkes Beach. I hope Nicqui’s mention of it doesn’t make me notice something awful that I’ve managed to overlook for 28 years. Without scrutiny and criticism mistakes such as phoney turrets will recur. Debating aesthetics is a first step towards an awareness that’s obviously lacking.

On the atheist bus

the UK is ‘There is probably no god. Now stop worrying and enjoy your life’. The buses with the slogans rolled out on January 6. Other countries have become involved; Spain, parts of Europe, even religious America has adopted the campaign with gusto and their own slogans. Interestingly the Atheist Foundation of Australia proposed that ‘Atheism – celebrate reason’ be advertised on Aussie buses. I find it immensely sad and absolutely hilarious that

Well, well, well. The atheist bus advertising campaign launched in August in London received so much in the way of donations that the campaign has spread to the London tube as well as 800 buses throughout the UK. The first ask by the Humanist Association in Britain was for £5,500 to be matched with £5,500 from Richard Dawkins. The final total donated was nearly £139,000 Robin Harrison without Dawkins’ contribuCoorabell tion. The advertising slogan for

Wasters The NSW government is supposed to be broke, cutting back funding on education and health, also taking our train off the Northern Rivers branch line.

Bad drivers I am a P-plate driver and am fed up with full licence drivers beeping and/or flashing headlights and/or sticking fingers up and/or yelling at me to exceed the speed limit for them, sometimes every day and sometimes several times a day driving between Byron and Suffolk Park. Do they really expect me to lose my licence so they can get home three minutes quicker. In case you don’t realise, it is a 50 zone. Karl Walton

Festival precinct? Although Splendour in the Grass has only a deferred agreement to stage a one-off musical event, we continue to see implications that they have already been given permission for more than one event at their Yelgun site. Note, for example, the bio for Brandon Saul that is posted at www.sydneycityfarm.org/about_us. Not sure how old that posting is, but it states that Mr. Saul’s ‘other current projects include a 660-acre regional art and festival precinct…’ Hmmm. When did a major wildlife corridor become a ‘festival precinct’? This is additional evidence that the Splendour promoters consider their ‘trial’ event to be only a formality. Their firm plan is, and always has been, to have multiple events at Yelgun each year. It is consistent with the original DA and with what one of the Coalition members heard at the council forum, chaired by the mayor, where a Splendour representative said their intention is to have approximately 6-8 events, including several aimed at audiences of well over 10,000. We should be leading other shires in having a reasonable and sustainable balance between business and residential interests. Allowing Splendour developers, or anyone else, to establish a ‘precinct’ for music events that bring thousands of people into a quiet residential area adjacent to an important nature reserve is simply not the way to go.

Articles

Teaching standup comedy is good for a laugh Peter Shepherd

A group of elderly ladies are carefully making their way to the entrance of the Poinciana café in Mullumbimby. One of them has a walking stick, and the others are stopping to wait for her, chatting and smiling. The walking stick is in first gear; four wheel drive. It’s a sensible gear selection for a place with hot drinks, children, and about a billion chair legs. Mandy Nolan is watching them. We’ve caught up to talk about her comedy course. The one coming up this term through ACE Byron Shire will be her last for a while – some technical reason about ‘having a baby’. ‘Let’s wait to see where those ladies want to sit,’ says Mandy. ‘Stealing seats from old ladies – that’s not a very good look, is it?’ This is a mother of three I’m talking to, with a fourth on the way. She knows how to get to the point. And how to get you to think. It’s not just a hallmark of her comedy, but also of how she teaches. Caring about people, and being authentic she will tell me later: two of the foundations that inform her life. So I sit down obediently. We wait. The ladies huddle. They look toward the counter, the tables. There’s discussion. Fi-

nally, they trundle off in the direction of the toilets. ‘I think we’re safe, now.’ At our new cool spot I ask her how it feels when people try and be funny around her. ‘It shits me. I just want people to be themselves. ‘Something I talk about in class, over and over: Just be yourself. We learn to look really hard at what that means. That stuff ’s already funny. It’s just how you present it.’ This is the heart of what she’s been teaching for nearly ten years. Taking students on a journey into their own mirror, and then learning to make that funny – warts and all. ‘People sometimes don’t see the sense in that – focusing on the problems. But that’s just looking at the surface. You’re actually taking that stuff, accepting it, and laughing about it, and then getting other people to laugh along with you! ‘And, come on, who’s really interested in perfect people? Oh, I’ve just been to my beachside mansion, jetskiing with my two high-achieving children, then off to a photoshoot… That’s not where we live. ‘Here in the world there are fat arses, psychosis, the impossibility of being a perfect parent. There’s grey hairs, bad decisions. When an audience hears those things, they relate. And there’s a sense of relief that

someone’s talking about them.’ Other people having the same issues as you, and finding it funny. That’s not therapy, it’s liberation. That’s when I get the sense that I’m in the presence of a potentially new religion. The Persian poet, Rumi, agreed: The dark thought, the shame, the malice, meet them at the door laughing, and invite them in. Maybe politicians should do the course. ‘A funny thing happened to me on the way to the election…’ World leaders. The Pope – Confession and karaoke.

Don’t we all just wanna have more fun? ‘It’s another way of getting in touch with your inner voice, your creative voice, the whinging part.’ She pauses and thinks. ‘Embrace the inner whinger.’ She says, her first official pronouncement, perhaps, from the Church of Comedy. As she points out, all the religious men wear frocks, too. It’s daunting. I’ve seen Mandy’s classes where it’s a mayhem of laughing and confessions; one when a tango class has been upstairs and she cried, ‘Why can’t they wear

ugh boots!?’ And a week before the Virgin Sacrifice – the course’s grand finale public performance – with students keen to keep visiting the toilet, I’ve watched Mandy’s sympathy and guidance get them through. ‘I’m actually into complete disclosure,’ she tells me. ‘Boundaries I’m not very good at.’ I ask her what she thinks the world would be like if we were all like that. ‘We’d do a lot more to help each other. People use boundaries, I think, to be fairly disconnected from each other, as an excuse. When you need help, who do you ring? Your friends without boundaries. They generally aren’t the ones to say, well, you know, I’m really too busy…’ But comedy can also be the voice of society’s conscience. Mandy’s talked about the Affordable Housing debate and welfare, calling it ‘Economic Cleansing’ with a keen comedian’s eye on the spin and lies of government. She’s leapt to the defence of the drummers kicked out of the Mullum markets because of the noise. ‘If they were drinking beer and bashing each other up it would be much more socially acceptable. What makes a comedian, then? ‘Ego… Difference. And vulnerability. And likeability –

you’re not going to be funny if you’re a fuckwit. ‘And, I guess, some level of intelligence. To be able to communicate to different people in a way that’s not condescending. And not personal. God, with so much material in your own life and the world, why would you ever need to get personal or nasty? Who likes preachy? ‘I can’t make you a comedian, but I can teach you the techniques, and you can use them in your life – with friends, public speaking.’ With about a thousand students so far through the course, Mandy and her students are making this an officially funny Shire. And at twenty something weeks, Mandy’s baby is going to be, literally, rolling in the belly laughs. Makes for an interesting future, don’t you think? If you enrol, bring some hot towels and a notebook. As she tells me: ‘Often the hardest times in your life turn out – later! – to be the best material.’ The ladies at the café are returning from the toilet as we leave. They smile at us, and swoop on our shady spot. Standup Comedy runs from Tuesday February 17 through ACE Byron Shire. Term One enrolments are open from January 19 on 6684 3374, or www.acebyron.org.au.

Letters Sadly, in our country, private land is just that – private. Full stop. So there is no access to Mt Chincogan. There is no access to the many hilltops around Byron Bay that have wonderful views that lie away from the roads. And where there is a roadside lookout point, there is no walkway into the land. If we walk along country roads, we risk getting covered in a cloud of dust or having to jump out of the way of traffic. So – outside of the National Parks – we can’t really get into the countryside. It’s all locked up. Now I know that all this will change come the end of 2012, but surely it’s not too early for a start to be made now? After all, landowners, to give is to receive. Rodaan

Byron Bay

Rude awakening Imagine: you are just married, have a private place overnight and at 6:30am you get interrupted by a ranger, knocking on the door, demanding to come inside. What is his intention? You have done nothing wrong. You inform the ranger that he is on private property and phone me, the landowner. I went to Council to meet this ranger, same day at 10am. He said he was acting with best intentions and it was first OK for me, shaking hands. Surprise: the compliance office was checking my land for illegal dwellings. I make a $62 freedom of information request which shows that the action of the compliance officer is based on an incorrect and misleading report. Despite after I have given him the correct picture, that makes me angry, logging my complaint three months ago with BSC – no outcome so far. This is something for the Angry Residents Knocking group – as advertised in The Echo. Dieter Horstmann

Tyagarah

Identifying birds Mary Gardner is one of my favourite journalists, and I hate to pick out the slight error she made in one of her earlier articles, but after repeating it again on last week’s edition of The Echo, my conscience won’t allow me to remain silent any longer. While obviously well re-

searched, knowledgeable and as much a lover of nature as many of us, she has referred to the awful Ibis twice now as being the ‘Royal Ibis’. Many of us know them for what they are, awful scavengers tearing into any vulnerable garbage bag left unprotected in dumpsters, or worse, the horrible filthy smelly mass they flock around in at garbage tips – while at least the blackwinged variety seem more content to forage in the countryside for tasty morsels. An old friend years ago told me how he used to name birds personally according to their appearance, and his personal name for them was the SickleBill. A mate and I currently joke about them being called Long-Billed Chicken after a certain Chinese restaurant was closed down north of this shire after health inspectors found carcasses swinging in their coolroom (reminding me of a certain picture that circulates the internet showing a diner opening a fortune cookie to read ‘that wasn’t chicken’). But unless the illustrated field guide to Australian birds I constantly referenced many years ago is wrong, thanks to their ancient Egyptian mythological influences, they are correctly known as the Sacred Ibis. I remember this well because one day while working on my parent’s new home being built on the shores of the Myall River in Tea Gardens, I watched as the most beautiful white-plumaged bird foraged up the river bank in the shallows, sweeping its long spoonbill from side to side sifting through the mud for sustenance, and I was amazed to see that unlike any other bird I’d watched before, this one was totally oblivious to its surroundings and seemed to be without a care in the world other than its own precious, dainty existence. Then I saw why, as not too far behind came her male friend, as spendidly white as she, yet slightly larger and with a crest protruding from the back of his head, and he was on total high alert. I knew right away that this bird was king, while his queen walked in supreme complacency under his careful watch. That evening I consulted the guide, and sure enough, I wasn’t at all surprised to see this species is correctly known as the Royal Spoonbill. Although

all new Sultry Sista

similar in size and shape to the Ibis, and obviously distantly related, they are a unique and brilliant species quite different in many ways. Their plumage is to white as a crow’s is to black, and they are miles ahead in the royalty stakes than are the filthy, leather-headed, yet still sacred, ibis. So while I don’t mean to take away from Mary’s otherwise excellent writing, and look forward to further articles, I hope she understands my reluctant correction of a slight, but still poignant, oversight. Happy new year to all.

Council’s agenda

For many years residents of Byron and visitors alike have been complaining about the awful traffic congestion in and around town, especially at summertime and this is entirely justified, considering Council’s continual inaction over the problem that is there for everyone to see. I believe it is becoming obvious that Council by not being proactive in coming up with a solution to the traffic chaos, has an agenda to actually deter people from visiting/coming to this beautiful town of ours. Ross Thatcher Let’s face it, Council under Jan Bangalow Barham has a history of doing

this, a couple of examples being the holiday letting issue and the terrible lack of entertainment for visitors and locals on NYE such as the cancelling of the fireworks and I don’t even need to bring up the absolute disgrace that is the Lighthouse Road problem – how many years has it been now? We all know it gets crazy in Byron during summer but Council is being totally negligent by not doing anything to solve this as it is going to get worse before it gets better and the residents and businesses of Byron will lose out in the end. Enough is enough, Council, how many more years are we as

residents going to have to wait for you to do something about this problem, how many more tourists and day trippers are you going to alienate by your inaction? (But I suppose that is your goal anyway.) Do us all a favour and respond publicly in this paper about what you are going to do about this problem and when, as you surely can’t expect us all to keep going through this year after year.

This is a our group took a short walk up from the gallery where in fact it is acceptable site of the art gallery over a cluster of to â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;just lookâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;.

It may have been thousands of years since these artists can be discovered year round in this gallery.

Arts and culture feature

Mankindâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s oldest art gallery would surely be here in Australia. The timeless works of art that are etched and painted on Australiaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s cave walls provide inspiration, story telling, beauty and myth for generations. Rock art has been part of the cultural backbone to the earthâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s longest surviving people, the Australian Aborigine. In both the Pilbara in Western Australia and the Olary region of South Australia, rock engravings have been dated at over 40,000 years old. The Aboriginals have been in existence for thousands of years, we are often told, but what we are sometimes not taught in schools is that their passion and history is communicated through their art and their art galleries. Some years ago I was working in Darwin and learnt first hand about the many types of art being protected by the local Aboriginal communities.

Goose takes to water for childrenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s sake Aslan Shand

Riding around the world on a motorbike was not only a life changing experience for Duncan Goose but ultimately a life changing experience for many women and children who spend on average five hours a day collecting water for their families in Africa. Fulfilling a life long dream, Goose gave up his position as an advertising executive and director on the WPP board in 1998 and spent the next two years riding his motorbike around the world. Of the many and varied experiences he had, two in particular changed his life direction. The first was assisting in the cleanup of the village he was staying in after Hurricane Mitch in Honduras. Goose and a number of fellow travellers then set about raising money to help rebuild the village. To their surprise they raised enough money to rebuild 13 villages. The second experience was in Peru in 1999 where he jumped off a mountain with a parachute. â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Every day I would land in a village and all the kids would rush out to pack up the chute and carry it back to the main road,â&#x20AC;&#x2122; said Goose. â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;The first day I had nothing to share with them, but each day fol-

lowing I would fly in with pens, books etc in my pack.â&#x20AC;&#x2122; At the end of a week the head of the village asked Goose to stay for lunch. â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;An incredible honour given the lack of food there, particularly since many didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t eat that day. When I left I made a promise to try to help a little.â&#x20AC;&#x2122; Since then Goose has funded the installation of drop toilets in the houses as well as toilets, a shower block and the installation of a basic IT infrastructure for the school. Following his return to the UK, during a night in the pub in 2003, he and some friends came up with the idea of selling bottled water to fund the provision of water in Africa. This led to the creation of Global Ethics, the company which now sells One water. Ten cents from each bottle of water purchased is returned to Global Ethics which then donates all its profits to its charitable arm the One Foundation which funds the installation of PlayPumps in South Africa. PlayPumps are powered by a childrenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s roundabout and pump water from the underground water table. They are installed in or near schools ensuring that young girls, who are often responsible for collecting the water, are able to attend school. The other important feature

of the installation is that the holding tank has advertising displayed on four sides. Two panels are used for educational purposes such as HIV information while the other two are sold to advertisers to provide the funds to maintain the pumps. â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;I was in Ethiopia on holiday a couple of years ago and everywhere you went you saw failed water systems,â&#x20AC;&#x2122; said Goose. â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;The reason they failed is because nobody maintained them, nobody was going back into the community going â&#x20AC;&#x153;is this still working? Is this not working?â&#x20AC;? Because you are selling advertising space here youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve got people in trucks driving back to the water tanks to change the advertising panels.â&#x20AC;&#x2122; These crews are also trained to maintain and fix the PlayPumps. There is also an SMS and free phone number to call if there is a problem with the pump. One water has been successfully raising money in the UK for several years and Global

Ethics has recently launched One condom in the UK which will provide condoms in Africa under the same principle. They are also looking to launch One soap which will focus on hygiene awareness. With the launch of One water in Australia the One Foundation will also be funding the introduction of sky hydrants in Asia which are able to filter water to safe drinking standards. The proceeds from Australia will be split 80% to Africa and 20% to Asia. One water will be bottled in Kulnura NSW in strict accordance with the Australian Organic Code and will also be registered with the Biological Farmers Association. â&#x2013; For more information visit www.onedifference.org. Duncan Goose is expected to be joined by actors Bridie Carter and Rhys Muldoon, MTV VJ Ruby Rose and television presenter Jennifer Adams to launch One water in Australia on January 14.

The Animal Rights & Rescue Group Northern Rivers has had one of the most demanding Christmasmas periods to date and â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;our volunteers have worked tirelessly to cope with a huge range of animal problems during this period and we need help to keep up with the work.â&#x20AC;&#x2122; says the group. â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;The intake of unwanted and dumped pets prior to Christmas was very high, leaving our foster carers overwhelmed with a higher than usual number of

animals now in care waiting for a new home. â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;ARRGâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s volunteer phone line was constantly busy with many calls regarding lost and found animals from the public, especially following the many storms and celebrations. Currently we have a list of unwanted animals waiting to come into care and many animals in local pounds unclaimed and they will be killed if ARRG canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t find a space for them very quickly.

â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;We urgently need all kinds of volunteers at the centre: office workers, any skills welcome, drivers â&#x20AC;&#x201C; car provided, gardening and mowing work, general maintenance and handyman work and animal care. Easy training and all food and vet care provided by ARRG. Foster pets are carefully matched to your facilities and existing pets.â&#x20AC;&#x2122; Contact 6622 1881, nonkill@ animalrights.org.au or visit www.animalrights.org.au. www.echo.net.au

Dolphin Dates Every year since 1991NCEIA presents the North Coast Music Awards, known as the Dolphins. Through the forum, aspiring talent has the chance to be awarded recognition for their achievements in the local entertainment scene. The awards night to be held in April 2009 will feature the best local talent, with prizes sponsored by supportive businesses of the North Coast. Media coverage has grown each year and the awards have become a genuine opportunity for aspiring talent to develop a local and national profile. Since that first inspirational event, the Dolphin Awards have assisted hundreds of north coast artists in developing their careers, providing an accolade for Dolphin winners to use in the promotion of their act or product. It remains the only regional music award in NSW. Deadline for entry into the numerous categories has been extended to February 2. Application forms and more information can be found at www.nceia.org.au

Funky Lady

Lady Jo Jo Don’t miss Jo Jo Smith when she arrives back in the area to launch her new album Live at the Blue Birdy. Recorded last year at the Blue Birdy in Byron, this soulful album is something to behold. With flavours of jazz and funk throughout, Smith shows how she has matured as an artist, with the kind of easy vocal that has you willing to sell your children just for one night of being able to sing like her. Mullumbimby Bowls Club this Thursday. Come for dinner and show ($40) or just the show ($20), music starts 8.30pm. Tickets at the door or book by phone: 6684 2533. The venue only has a limited capacity so I suggest you book in advance.

Afloydance Technique Floyd Vincent and the Childbrides have been off the road for two months as Floyd bonds with his new son Cooper, born last November. With two children under the age of three in the house and a million nappies to change, Floyd has decided the time is right to head out on the road for a north coast tour. The band had a big year in 08 with a trip to Vietnam and various short tours around Oz. They have been demoing some new material at Bass player Bill Jacobi’s studio and this material will be played at the Beach Hotel on Friday and the Lennox Point Hotel on Saturday.

A former Dolphin Award winner, Carola Christian, (singer/ songwriter/guitarist) weaves a fresh approach into her music by succumbing to affairs with Dirty Funk, Soul, Rock, Groove, Latin, Roots & Blues to create a web of sound that is dynamic and expressive.

Nina Conti, at the Big Joke Thursday March 26 its music to new audiences, having already won considerable recognition in its hometown Melbourne since forming in 2007 (playing two lengthy residencies and scoring top billing at the 2008 Eltham Jazz & Blues Festival). The unmistakable sound of A Planet in Space blends roots, rock, reggae, folk, soul, drumand-bass, hip-hop, punk, dub, metal and improvisation into seamless, exhilarating musical narratives. Its unconventional lineup proudly sports two full drum-kits and two lead guitarist-vocalists. The four musicians have all trained classically or in jazz. They play the Beach Hotel on Wednesday.

Free Willie Byron Bay seems to attract creative talented people and Willie Hona is no exception. Willie moved to the area a couple of years ago and music lovers will have seen him play at a number of venues around the shire and beyond but this Sunday is his first time at the Beach Hotel. Willie is best known

for his work in The Herbs who, despite their only hit in this country – the collaboration with Dave Dobbin on Slice of Heaven – never quite cracked the Australian music scene even though they hold an almost iconic status in New Zealand. (Warners recently released yet another best of Herbs CD, Lights of the Pacific which debuted on the Kiwi charts at number 20). Willie parted company with the band in 1988 on the eve of an Australian tour and without their inimitable front man the band was never the same, although it has continued in one form or another to this day. Willie’s 40 year career encompasses much more than the six years he spent with The Herbs. He has played with The Wailers, Taj Mahal and Stevie Ray Vaughn. He has toured and recorded all over the world and could be considered an elder statesman of the New Zealand music scene. For Sunday’s gig Willie has assembled a great band of local musicians: Dave Sandford, keys and sax, James Cox,

I Diggles your music Well known Aussie blues guitarist Mick Diggles returns to Byron with his band The Blues Doctors for one show only at the Rails on Thursday. Veteran blues guitarist, Mick Diggles has rubbed shoulders with Australiaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s best for decades, both as a backing musician and as an artist in his own right. He backed J.O.K. in Melbourne, supported Albert King in Sydney, gigged with Daddy Coolâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Ian Winter and Bondi Cigarâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Shane Pacey and Allan Britton plus many more. This year saw Mick head to the ground zero of blues, Chicago, to meet up with an ex band member and Southside Chicago resident, harp player Dave Brown. The result was a recording session at iconic Chicago recording studio Paragon with the album to bemixed at Brisbaneâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Angel Studios and released in early February. Mick has been invited back to Chicago to perform, and perhaps at the Chicago Blues Festival in 2010. Catch him at the Rails on Thursday.

Loving Reggie Reggie Watts is a one-man band like no other. Watts shakes new meaning into what you can do with a human voice, a microphone and a loop machine. Exploiting a jaw-dropping ten-octave vocal

range he creates funky bass lines and soulful diva-esque vocals to underpin hilarious, off-the-cuff riffs on everything from ancient history and technology, science and racism, to theology and pop culture. Channeling over 300 characters, his mix of improvised music, absurd comedy and visceral social commentary makes him a one-ofâ&#x20AC;&#x201C;a-kind performer. Like a tornado traversing hip-hop, trip-hop, 80â&#x20AC;&#x2122;s pop alternative, nu-metal and classical opera, no two songs are ever the same as Reggie Watts disorientates and stuns audiences with a supernatural force. He performs at the Mullum Civic Hall on Sunday February 1. Tickets $25 at Mullumbimby Bookshop or at the door from 7pm. Showtime 8pm. Doors open 7pm, with fine food and drinks from Open Table.

One of the featured International performers at this yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Big Joke Festival is Nina Conti. Sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a pedigree act, the daughter of English Actor Tom Conti, Nina herself is both a standup comic, an actress and a ventriloquist. It all comes together magically in her onstage relationships as this gentle and quite beautiful woman battles with a monkey that appears to have a pretty severe case of Touretteâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s syndrome. Nina is no shrinking violet, with First Class honours in Philosophy under her belt itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s no wonder she has chosen to spend most of her time with her hand inserted in a monkeyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s rectum. Sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s performed in numerous shows with the Royal Shakespeare Company, is the character Kate from Black Books and is a regular at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival. She was also chosen as one of the British comedians to showcase at the Montreal Just for Laughs Festival. She was a

big talent right from the beginning. In 2002, Conti won the BBC New Comedy Award. She regularly headlines at London comedy venues, and she took her first solo full length show, Complete and Utter Conti to Edinburgh in 2007, in which she introduced some new characters as well as familiar routines. In 2008, she won the Barry Award for this show at the Melbourne International Comedy Festival where she has been invited back for a return appearance. I saw the show and can testify that it was one of the most remarkable comedy shows I have ever seen. Breathtakingly funny, but also poignant, Conti is a comedian who marries her acting skills to give a riveting and theatrical performance.

Film: Under the Sun

Cabaret: What good is sitting alone in your room?

Professionals with all that comes along with it. Byron Bay is the ‘soul surfer’ headquarters of Australia. The movie tells the story of the clash (of sorts) between these two visions of surfing. These visions are personified in the movie by Rabbit Bartholomew of ASP fame on the part of the Gold Coast, and Nat Young and his brood on behalf of Byron Bay. US Emmy award winning film maker Cyrus Sutton will give a talk about the making of the film. Also appearing are local artists Band of Frequencies and OKA who will be performing a few tunes at the Hotel Great Northern show. Band Of Frequencies are taking time out from their recording of their next album and also feature on the soundtrack of the Under The Sun Film – signed to prestigious US label Ubiquity. Wednesday.

A Brisbane boy now based in Byron, Si.Clone aka Simon Dunn has played his quirky underground rhythms up and down the east coast of Australia since 1996. Si.Clone’s party music would sound something like this: ‘A fresh mix of squelchy fat techno, breaks, glitchy minimal tech/ tech house, dubstep and a few electro robot numbers for good measure.’ With Chris Cunningham (graphic artist responsible for the music video Come to Daddy by Aphex Twin) as one of Si.Clone’s favourite celebrities listed on his Facebook along with ranking TV series such as Dexter and True Blood as his top 2, I think we can assume that his music needs more than just a DJ booth; a radio show where listeners can submerge themselves in tasty sonic anomalies and rare jewels of the electronic kind with a dryly humorous edge. ‘Submerged’ www.submerged.com.au and www.basswarp.com at Bay FM is what we’re talking about. Q: What do you focus on in your radio show ‘Submerged’? A: The show is primarily about the music, I’m not on there

to give my opinions about politics or waffle on about anything. I try to play for extended periods as much as possible to give the show a flow and a vibe. Radio is great because I can play a lot of the more down tempo and quirky stuff that I collect which I would never be able to play out at a gig.’ Q: Skills differ from club DJ to radio DJ, what would you point out as important when on radio? A: Knowing the equipment well and knowing how to use it is vital, you definitely get

Ell Circo dell Fuego. Set on the back of a Gypsy wagon, wowing audiences with everything from juggling to burlesque to the kooky to the magical to the (possibly) slightly inappropriate, A Gypsy Cabaret introduces new characters to the stage as well as digging up some old favourites. Butlers on Marvel will be open for dinner from 6pm, theatre doors open at 7.30 for an 8pm start. Tickets $10, rated PG (some coarse language and adult themes).

Theatre: By a Nose It’s the classic kiddie tale. Tell a lie and your nose will grow. Pinocchio is the pin up boy for all the beautiful big nosers out there. Firetrax Theatre regularly mount a holiday show for kids and this year it’s not different. This year they present Pinocchio at the Bangalow A&I Hall. It shows 2pm on Thursday & Friday, Monday & Tuesday, and again on Wednesday 21 with the last show on Thursday January 22. Tickets are still at the affordable price of children $6, adults $9, family (2a+2c) $6/ head. They are available at the door or for bookings ph: 6687 1998.

as is keeping things flowing smoothly and having all your levels right. Not having a live audience reacting to the music right in front of you makes it quite different to a club or festival gig and gives you a lot more freedom to play different sorts of music that you could never play to a dance floor. Q: Electro has been your passion for many years and you are Mr. Electro ‘round these parts; from old to current styles of this genre, can you describe why and what attracts you to stay with one particular genre? A: What most DJs/punters think ‘electro’ is these days has nothing to do with the real electro sound. si.clone on bay fm It’s definitely been my pasfriday 8pm sion for many years but to be honest I play less electro in my sets these days than I ever have as it’s quite an acquired taste. or yl I’m generally ta ck jet more and ni playing a mix at the winsome hote l friday of electro, techno, tech better at it and become more house, breaks, minimal and comfortable with being on now even some dubstep in air the more experience you my sets.

PLACEBO Placebo is a testament to the power of positive thinking. Often given in trials of medicine a placebo (from the Latin, ‘I will please’) is a substance or procedure given to a patient which has no evidence-based therapeutic value but which can result in ‘the placebo effect’, by which the patients feels his or her condition is improved or even cured. How can a pharmacologically inert substance have a positive effect? The power of the mind to cure itself? Or, as the more sceptical suggest, the willingness of the patient to please the doctor conducting the test? PLUTONIAN THERAPY This therapy is to be used when life on earth just gets too much for you and Mars and Venus just don’t cut it either. Just pop out to Pluto and get yourself a galactic slice of a better life or lack of it somewhere else.

Professional cleaning can not only improve the colour and remove recent staining, but plaque removal can also improve the health of the gums. Cleaning the teeth not only feels fresh and brightens the teeth, but the build up of plaque can be the cause of much imbalance in the body including bacterial infection, bad breath, impaired digestion and the beginnings of periodontal disease. Regular observation of what is going on in the mouth can prevent later problems that can prove costly to both your health and bank account, so it’s good to include a check up in your visit.

1. The new president of the United States gets profiled on Dreams of Obama (SBS, Friday, 7.30pm), four days before his inauguration. 2. Matthew McConaughey shows off the bod in yet another silly â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;lost treasureâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; action adventure called Sahara (TEN, Saturday, 8.45pm), which entirely wastes the talents of William H Macy. 3. Billy Bob Thornton, right, gives Jeffrey Davies a talking-to in Bad News Bears (TEN, Sunday, 6.30pm). Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not a patch on the 1976 original with Walter Matthau and the delightful Tatum Oâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;Neal, but is effective satire nevertheless.

Seven Pounds The summer school hols are dog days for the cine-tragic. Full houses of other people, late-comers, incessant chatter (‘Wha’d he say?’ ‘Dunno … is she his wife?’), flashing texts, dashes to the dunny (how hard is it to plan ahead?), faces being stuffed with all manner of junk (is there any noise more annoying than the potato crisp packet?) and that inescapable battery-hen feeling that comes with the understanding that you are just a passive consumer of product. Not the best circumstances to see any film, but even more trying when it is one as abysmal as this. The story opens with the always likeable, flap-eared Will Smith on the verge of topping himself (would that the deed was done immediately, putting us all out of our misery), then trawls back to reveal what led to this moment. Will has been on a mission, seeking worthy recipients of a gift that he will bestow on them. What that gift will be is concealed as part of the torturous, one-paced plot. Clues are doled out erratically in writer Grant Nieport’s blurry script, (a witless irony, given that an introductory scene has Smith emphasising to his employees that they must ‘tell the people what you are going to do’) and when you finally twig what’s going on the tryhard profundity of the cryptic

parts, with even the breath of the wind making its presence felt. Aware no doubt of the general disdain in which Disney is held by connoisseurs, the writers have also included a deliciously defiant scene in which a studio exec warns the director that feedback indicates that their focus group ‘is not happy with happy.’ Confronted with the world’s problems, we too willingly scorn, at our peril, the warmer, enduring verities – a little girl’s love for her dog and its loyalty to her among them.

REVIEWS

There is a newish restaurant in Shoreditch, London, called Saf, which celebrates raw vegan food and serves most dishes not heated above 48oC (an example being thin slices of beetroot around cashew herb â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;ricottaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; with new asparagus). That could be interesting as an occasional visit out of curiosity â&#x20AC;&#x201C; but I do wonder if it will develop more than a very small and elite following. Raw food I have devoted a previous column to; this one is concerned with temperature and the role it plays in cooking. Most foods are cooked for four reasons: to tenderise, to provide additional flavour, to kill harmful bacteria, and to destroy parasites. Cooking is both the art and the science of combining and transforming foodstuffs in order to increase the pleasure and nutrition they bring: the result of heat effecting physical and chemical transformations which are fundamental to flavour and texture, safety and nutrition. It seems to me that temperature is the spine, as it were, of cooking, to which the various other factors are attached â&#x20AC;&#x201C; such is its importance. I am often amazed, even appalled, at the level of ignorance regarding cooking temperatures displayed by students of my cooking classes â&#x20AC;&#x201C; including women who have been serving up family dinners for decades! I waft from one area of the classroom to another overseeing the recreation of dishes I have just demonstrated, to find that one group has the heat up perilously high while the next is standing around a frypan of cold oil wondering why the onions are not softening. Moderately high, is what I urge, with constant hovering, supervision and stirring â&#x20AC;&#x201C; and the reflex, should things be cooking too quickly, to lower the heat or even remove the pan from its source. I would have thought these acts instinctive, but apparently not. There are, regarding temperatures, as many rules as there are styles. Just when I felt secure in my knowledge that fish always be seared quickly in a hot frypan both sides then, if required, finished off in the oven, along comes a chef quoted as saying that

his preferred method is slow-poaching in olive oil in the lowest of low ovens. (Tetsuya made famous the technique, I believe...) The belief that pork should be overcooked is outdated: infinitely safer modern farming practices ensure that pigs are no longer exposed to the parasite causing trichinosis. In fact in recent food magazines I am noticing recipes which call for pork to be cooked just beyond rareness in order to maintain moistness and flavour. Times, technology and trends changing keep us on our culinary toes â&#x20AC;&#x201C; but certain laws remain inviolable if we are to avoid poisoning ourselves and others through incorrect temperatures. It was Louis Pasteur who in the 19th century discovered the connection between spoiled food and micro-organisms and that heat treatment could be used to kill the offending microbes. Bacteria pervade our environment and some are useful, making food interesting and palatable, while others make us sick or even kill us. They are typically wiped out at temperatures around 68oC. The spread of the Slow Food cult has turned our attentions toward dishes which cook for hours at very low temperatures. Such an antithesis to stir-fries whose immense popularity owed to the fact that a meal could be on the table minutes after the cooking began! Increasingly, chefs are discovering (or perhaps rediscovering) the benefits of long slow cooking for various cuts of meat, resulting in flavours and textures which leave diners swooning. My friend Kate, a chef and caterer, once told me that she cooks everything at 200oC, pure and simple. And recently I was reading about a cake-maker in Canberra whose piece of advice was to lower the recommended heat for all cakes by twenty degrees (celsius) so that the cakes can â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;settle inâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;. There is the great and oft-forgotten fact that the heat in something cooked will go on cooking the item even when it is removed from oven or stove-top. Perhaps the best tip is to buy an oven thermometer, to check with regularity â&#x20AC;&#x201C; and to have a pantry of back-ups if the meal goes horribly wrong!

GREAT MOMENTS IN EATING Some great eating experiences toward the end of 2008 need to be mentioned: namely Tippy Hengâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s sublime Duck Curry at Traditional Thai; the authentic hand-made naan bread at Bollywood Kitchen (pull-apart, light and luscious) to accompany the fabulous curries; the sticky octopus on the new summer menu at Byron at Byronâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s restaurant; the chicken-and-clam pizza home-delivered by Earthâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;nâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;Sea which we â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;inventedâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; and which proved a winner...

The ongoing Australian Open in Manly has enjoyed the unfortunate distinction of witnessing the first confirmed case of computer cheating in Australia – with the player involved expelled from the tournament. Juniors Cedric Koh and Edward Naoumov were battling for the leading places of the reserves event, the Manly Classic, when Koh’s father, Jason, became concerned by the frequent visits to the toilet by Naoumov. Ever since the ‘Toilet Wars’ world title match between Vladimir Kramnik and Veselin Topalov in 2006, such suspicions are more frequently heard, though usually just as unfounded as Topalov’s allegations against Kramnik. However when Jason Koh noted that Naoumov was emerging from the booth without flushing and with a strange square object in his pocket, he decided to ask the arbiters to investigate.

adjustments I could make to improve the situation? VIRGO: Your ruling planet retrograding can stir up misunderstandings caused by criticism or lack of tact – try not to let that be from your side. Resist the temptation to say I told you so and treat disruptions to your daily routine as exciting challenges rather than irritations. LIBRA: As one door shuts, a dozen windows of opportunity spring open, and if you can’t make up your mind this week’s likely to do it for you. Take things slowly so you can process the absolute cornucopia of possibilities presenting themselves. SCORPIO: Should family or other dramas erupt this week, listen for what people aren’t saying – which will tell you more about what’s really going on than their impassioned outbursts. Using your Scorpionic superpowers for the good of all concerned will earn you pretty well instant karmic rewards. SAGITTARIUS: Life after the season of unreason is insisting you slow down, take a breather and think things through.

the centre

Timing’s all important right now, so play the diplomat rather than be fearlessly forthright – avoid touchy subjects and keep personal or classified information to yourself. CAPRICORN: Best use of this week? Using the latest technologies to develop and market your skills or product. Postpone real estate deals till after February 2nd if you can, because things initiated or bought during Mercury retrograde often need revision, exchange or repair later on. AQUARIUS: Mercury, Jupiter and Neptune in Aquarius bring you a gorgeous week, so share it around. Try to communicate simply and clearly, and for top results treat others the way we love: with care, concern and compliments– chocs and champagne if you really must… PISCES: Focus on Venus in Pisces pleasures rather than subjecting yourself to the rough and tumble jumble of this week’s existential jungle. You’ll be especially responsive to energetic fluctuations, which won’t be entirely friction free – but when they’re good they’ll be very, very good..

New colours in the Bay!

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

After Nauomov’s 20th move, an organiser followed the Sydney 14-year-old and over the top of an adjacent cubicle saw the player using a Chessmaster program on his PlayStation Portable (PSP). When confronted and told that he would be expelled from the Manly Classic, Naoumov confessed to using computer assistance, apologised and accepted a forfeit in the game involved, but begged to be allowed to continue playing in the tournament. His case was heard before a three person appeals committee and unanimously rejected, so now he is likely to be banned from tournament chess in NSW for a considerable period. A ten year ban was recently imposed in India for a similar offence, but that was a case involving a much stronger adult player. Given Naoumov’s age,

his contrition, and the likelihood that this was an isolated incident – albeit a very serious one – the Sydney youngster is likely to be outed for a more modest year or two. This was the infamous seventh round encounter: Manly 2008 White: C Koh Black: E Naoumov Opening: Sicilian Defence 1.e4 c5 2.b3!? Nf6 3.e5 Nd5 White’s unusual second move clearly caught Naoumov by surprise since he now took his first visit to the toilet. 4.Bb2 Nc6 5.Nf3 e6 6.g3 d6 7.Bg2 dxe5 8.Nxe5 Nxe5 9.Bxe5 f6 10.Bb2 Be7 11.f4 0-0 12.0-0 c4!? 13.Nc3 Bc5+ 14.Kh1 Nxc3 15.Bxc3 Bd4 16.Bxd4 Qxd4 17.c3 Qc5 18.b4?! Qc7 19.Qf3? 19.d4 was better. 19... Rd8 Now, after Black’s sixth visit to the toilet so far, an increasingly agitated Jason Koh relayed his concerns to the arbiter. 20.Rad1 a5 (See diagram) After playing this move, Black disappeared from the board and was found with his PSP and forfeited. 1-0

It must be admitted that this game, ingenious twelfth move apart, is not a great advertisement for the strength of Chessmaster on PSP but the limited assistance would probably have been enough to help win the game for Naoumov, who was ranked marginally higher than Koh in any case. As arbiter and Olympiad player Laura Moylan commented, this was an easy case but dealing with more professional efforts in the future is likely to test even the most eagled-eyed referees. a

Cricket clinics for juniors Kurt paddles to World Cup Finally the cricket season is here and in full swing. It’s the perfect time to learn new techniques or just sharpen existing skills. NSW Sport and Recreation is offering all junior cricket enthusiasts a chance to participate in one of five cricket clinics across the North Coast. ‘The cricket clinics are designed for both girls and boys aged 8 to 16 to learn the correct techniques while also promoting enjoyment and sportsmanship of the game,’ said NSW Sport and Recreation Develop-

ment Officer, Heidi Duncan. ‘Participants will learn skills such as how to drive, square cut or hook the ball, explore the different forms of bowling and improve their fielding and throwing skills.’ All five cricket clinics will be headed by highly qualified, experienced coaches such as Stan Gilchrist, Keith Wyatt, John Brenton, Amanda Owens and Regional Coaching Director Chris Moran. The Tweed Heads clinic wil be held on January 19 – 21 and

will be offering separate clinics for boys and girls and the cost is $65 per clinic. As positions are limited and applications are handled on a first-come, first-served basis, parents and guardians are advised to book places for their children as soon as possible to avoid disappointment. For further information or to enrol, visit the NSW Sport and Recreation website at www. dsr.nsw.gov.au or contact the North Coast Regional Office on 6618 0400.

At a time when most winter sports people have hung up their boots for the season and headed to the beach for some fun in the sun, North Coast Academy of Sport’s NCAS Rugby Squad have been working hard on their skills and fitness through a series of offseason camps over the summer months. Just one month after the squad was selected in October, the squad’s first camp was held at St John College Woodlawn in very humid conditions. NCAS Rugby’s new head coach Rod Butterfield, with

the support of his two assistant coaches Don Darke and David Moppett set down a plan and work ethic to the new squad member that aimed to see them develop their skills and fitness to the point of being ready for the strong start to the 2009 winter season. Just prior to Christmas, the squad headed to the scenic foothills of Tyalgum for a two day session with the NCAS coaching team and members of the Gold Coast Breakers coaching and development program. In stifling heat and tropical

Byron Bay’s Kurt Tutt will travel to Perth next week for his shot at World Cup glory when he contests the richest ocean paddling race in Australian January 17. The 23 kilometre marathon downwind paddle from Rottnest Island to the Scarborough Beach Auditorium, is known as the ‘The Doctor’. The event will see paddlers from all over the world converge on the Western Australian capital to take on Tutt and the country’s best open water paddlers including Tim Jacobs, Murray Stewart, Jeremy Cotter and Caine Eckstein. Australia’s elite will shape up rains, the squad underwent against a host of internationanother tough series of skills and fitness sessions which were tailored to improve individual weaknesses and team dynamics. Coaching staff were impressed with the players’ improvements and the way they took to their tasks with enthusiasm in the trying conditions.

al stars including legendary South African and reigning World Series champion Oscar Chalupsky, fellow leading South Africans Dawid Mocke and Hank McGregor, the 2008 champion from the famous Molokai to Oahu race, Tahitian Lewis Laughlin and paddlers from New Zealand, Hawaii, Asia and Europe. ‘The Doctor’, now in its fifth year, is the world’s best pure downwind race. It is one of only four 4 star events in the surf ski world series and also features categories for outrigger canoes and the growing discipline of standup surfboard paddling. This event has developed

into the most competitive and coveted downwind race on the international ocean paddling calendar and the fact that it is a crossing, from Rottnest to the mainland with just the paddlers and the open ocean, makes it such a pure test of the paddler and the elements. The event will be followed up by a 15km two person team relay from Fremantle to City Beach the next day, Sunday January 18. Both races are not just for the elite either with the event open to paddlers of all levels. Entries and event information can be found at www.oceanpaddler.com.

Did you know that the first cervical vertebra, the atlas, is out of alignment in most people? AT L A S P R O FILAXÂŽ

MARRIAGE CELEBRANT

Unique weddings & ceremonies ALISON MACKAY 66801884 www.alisonmackay.com

One treatment can be life changing. The Atlas supports your head and governs structural alignment. A misaligned Atlas causes restriction of the brain stem, spinal cord, cranial nerves and arteries. This limits our potential for wellbeing and creates tension, restricting the free flow of energy. When the Atlas is installed correctly, the body begins an unwinding process, releasing holding patterns and enabling the body to heal and regenerate.

To take a giant step towards your health and wellbeing, contact Sidika Ashauer, Brunswick Heads clinic. 0427 805 405 www.atlasprofilax.com

This circumstance leads to a variety of physical and psychological ailments and illnesses. Atlasprofilax is a neuromuscular technique that liberates the Atlas with only one application Accurately, Safely and Permanently. This powerful relocation immediately activates a self-healing and harmonising process. It is holistic in nature, promoting wellness and rejuvenation on all levels, mind, body and spirit. This method is non-medical, non-chiropratic.
