They stand on the Trevor-Jones beef cattle property on Upper Hayter’s Hill near Bangalow. Dave is the fifth generation (his mother was a Hayter) to live here, the property was selected by Dave’s great grandfather and his uncle in 1881. Story & photo Lou Beaumont

Byron Farmers Market has initiated a new certification program so consumers can see the authenticity and transparency that applies to the produce at Byron and Bangalow Farmers Markets. Initially farmer’s markets were just that – they were driven by farmers for farmers. Due to the growing popularity of markets of this kind, more commercial and entrepreneurial minds have recognised the opportunity to take advantage of farmers market reputations. However, shoppers are becoming increasingly discerning and want to know that what they are buying is fresh from the farm, not merely produce bought from a large market and sold on by someone in a farmer’s hat. Byron Farmers Market has decided to raise the bar of proof of produce authenticity.

A taskforce was set up of manager Donald Recsei, the president Hugh Armstrong and the committee and Rescei drew up a unique certification program to audit and endorse the genuine nature of the produce. All stallholders at the Byron and the Bangalow Farmers Market will display their compliance certificates. The certification process involved an initial farm visit requiring a disciplined and documented inspection of such aspects as core produce, seasonality, machinery and infrastructure and water supply. During the farm visit the inspector looked at what it is the farmer intends to sell at the market and, finally, an actual market stall inspection is carried out to confirm compliance. The process will be ongoing with regular and sometimes random inspections carried out to ensure continuity. Donald Rescei told The Echo,

‘We are not trying to police the farms, just monitor them. It is still up to the farmers to sell what they want to sell and it’s still up to the buyers to choose to buy it – we are just joining the gap between the farm and the market so the buyer knows it is the genuine article.’ One of the farmers, Dave Trevor-Jones, moves his cattle around paddocks regularly to avoid tick and worm problems and uses a homemade tincture of canola and aromatic oils for buffalo fly control. No chemicals are used in pasture or on cattle, and he does not use pre-mixes when preparing sausages or chorizo, hand adding fresh herbs. This extra time and homemade care is what sets the Trevor-Jones beef apart and why at least eight local cafés use his produce. Dave’s brother and neighbour, Hugh Trevor-Jones, is also known for his produce, raising happy mobile chickens.

noon, and pick up your bag and gloves. The Cape Byron Trust will continue its involvement with the ‘Clean Up’ campaign with a cleanup of the Cape Byron Headland Reserve. ‘Volunteers are urged to come out and help clean up cigarette butts, bottles, cans and plastic bags that accumulate on the Reserve,’ said Cape Byron Trust Chairperson Yvonne Stewart. ‘If you want to join in, just turn up on the day with gloves, a hat, sturdy shoes, sunglasses and sunscreen and register as a volunteer. The Cape provides inspiration and beauty to both locals and visitors, and each

year it’s great to see that the community really cares about this place.’ Volunteers can meet the site coordinator at Captain Cook Carpark on Lighthouse Road on Sunday March 1 at 9.30am to register. Participants will help in cleaning up various areas of the Reserve including Clarkes Beach, Lighthouse walking track, Cosy Corner and the Pass. The morning will run from 9.30am to 12pm, and will finish with a late morning tea at Palm Valley. For further information call Cape Byron Trust site coordinator Andy Robinson on 6620 9300.

Public goodbye to flamboyant woman Story & photo Eve Jeffery

If you didn’t know Anudhi Wentworth, her memorial service held at the Community Centre in Byron Bay last Thursday would have given you a clue to the nature of this intriguing woman. From the Samba-Blisstas welcoming committee at the entrance to the Community Centre, to the songs of Frank Sinatra floating from the verandah and from the tinkling of champagne glasses to the strew memorabilia and photos reminiscent of a Hollywood star of the 50s, evidence of Anudhi’s adventurous life’s milestones, touched on who she was. Friends and family gathered for the public goodbye of a very public woman and with more people standing than seated, the afternoon was much more about celebration than sadness. Friend and neighbour Jan Dawkins told those gathered that Germaine Greer called Anudhi mother and Mayor Jan Barham said she was a visionary voice in the Byron Shire, recounting a meeting that she had with Bob Carr in 1997 when the Premier asked Jan if it was possible to stop Anudhi ringing his office – there will be hundreds across the shire who will have at one time or another picked up the phone to

Denise Greenaway and Anudhi’s daughter Lisa Wentworth with Anudhi’s special monkey mask.

hear, ’Hello darling. I wonder if you could help me.’ Anudhi’s second husband William Wentworth recounted how Anudhi loved an audience. ‘She didn’t like to see a good audience go to waste,’ he said. ‘She also had a tonne of guts. She was fearless and never intimidated,’ an observation echoed by all of the speakers. Denise Greenaway recalled

Anudhi’s political career in the Byron Shire and wore a monkey mask that was once Anudhi’s method of making a political statement, then she proposed a toast to the woman who was ‘the queen of conservation and the queen of my heart.’ A common thread throughout the speeches was that even though knowing Anudhi was sometimes an enormous chal-

lenge, it was worth the effort to know this never to be forgotten woman. Anudhi’s daughter Lisa spoke few words but thanked all those present for their love and support and in closing, the gathering collectively sang: ‘May the long time sun shine upon you, all love surround you and the pure light within you, guide your way home.’

Whaling nations boycott planned Dean Jefferys from the Byron whale action group is organising a boycott-the-whalingcountries protest at a major Japanese retailer on March 9 in Brisbane. To promote the day and enlist passionate whale lovers to join the action, Mr Jefferys is presenting various short whale films including updated information on the perils facing the whales and dolphins and what people can do to help them. The film/info night will be at Byron community centre on Sunday March 1 at 7pm. Entry by donation. Ben Potts from Bangalow is

currently on his way back from the Antarctic after spending the last three months at sea with the Sea Shepherds harassing the Japanese whalers. Ben is expected to be back in time to give a presentation of his journey which will include some dramatic footage of his encounters with the Japanese whalers. Jefferys said, ‘Japan is disgracing itself internationally to satisfy the desires of a few of the old guard within the Japanese fishing industry. If the Australian government were serious about stopping the Japanese killing more whales then they would take Japan to the international

court as environment minister Peter Garrett said he would before the last election. ‘We can’t wait any longer for diplomacy to work, so we are now calling for consumers around the world to boycott Japanese products and services to pressure Japan to stop this barbaric practice. There will also be a focus to boycott products from Iceland and Norway.’ Anyone wanting to book a seat on the ‘Whale Song’ sponsored bus to Brisbane can contact Dean at deanjefferys@ gmail.com and for more info see www.flightofthehumpback. org.

Shire keeps giving for bushfire appeal On Friday February 20 students from Wilsons Creek School, pictured above, dressed as their favourite sports person or as colourfully as possible for a fundraising day for the students of Kinglake West School in Victoria. Students and their families donated $292 and the P&C contributed a further $100. Cruz Bainbridge, President of the Schools’ Student Representative Council, said that it had been decided to support Kinglake West School as although the school had been saved from the bushfires many of the Kinglake West students experienced loss of their homes and in some cases the death of family members. President of the Brunswick Mullumbimby Lions Club Trevor Watts estimates that the Lions Club will be sending over $15,000 to the bushfire appeal from funds raised locally. Lions have been holding buckets in Mullumbimby, at the Ocean Shores Shopping Centre and at the Mullumbimby Market. Trevor thanked the Mullumbimby Uniting Church for a donation of $2,000 and advised that the Lions Club itself had ‘emptied the moneybox and donated $5,000’. Lions are receiving donations at Imelda’s Shoes and Ray Towers Carpets in Mullumbimby.

CRASH THIS THURSDAY, FRIDAY AND SATURDAY reka Fire Benefit is $20. There will be a raffle on the night with prizes donated by local businesses. A gold coin donation for the sausage sizzle goes to the same cause. Byron Shire Council will donate $5,000 each to the Australian Red Cross Victorian Bushfire Appeal and Queensland Flood Appeal. Byron Shire Mayor Jan Barham said the resolution at last week’s Council meeting was unanimously supported and Council staff has been requested to provide a report on the possibility of providing further ongoing funds. ‘Australia is currently a country of extremes and our hearts go out to the communities who are tasked with the enormous job of rebuilding their lives, homes and community infrastructure,’ said Mayor Barham. ‘Over the past week, a cup of tea and tempting treats saw staff at Byron Shire Council raise over $1,400 for the Victorian Bushfire Appeal through donations and a well supported morning tea donated by Mullumbimby Bakery.’ The community is also encouraged to support two local upcoming events being organised by the newly formed fundraising group ‘Byron to the Bush’.

The group was formed to organise ongoing fundraisers and includes Byron Shire Mayor Jan Barham, Beach Hotel manager Elke van Haandel, Margaret Robertson of the Northern Rivers Community Foundation, Ed Ahern of Byron United, Ian Cohen MLC, and Bluesfest director Peter Noble.

Beach Hotel gig Upcoming events include a fundraising afternoon at The Beach Hotel on Sunday March 8, from 2pm to 6pm, featuring entertainment, raffles and auction. A fundraising dinner is also being held at the Pacific Dining Room on Friday March 8. Further information on the events, or how to donate goods, can be obtained from Elke van Haandel 6685 6402 or Peter Noble 6685 8310. Bangalow Fire Brigade raised funds at the Bangalow Markets courtesy of the Bangalow Parks Trust. During the course of the day the crew raised $5,350. Fishheads at Bangalow is holding a fundraiser on Thursday February 26, 5.30pm—8.30pm. Tickets $20, for more information call 6687 2883. All monies will be collected by the local chamber of commerce and given to Red Cross. Annie Duncan is knitting

pouches for the RSPCA and WildLife Centres to help fill the demand for hand-knitted pouches for baby animals which have lost their mothers in the fires. The Byron Bay Anglican Church has offered to be a dropoff point for knitting needles and wool. The dimensions of pouches and where to send them to is with them. The Silver Thread Craft shop in Mullumbimby has offered to be a dropoff point for leftover wool and needles. Pip has offered 20% off special wool stock for the bushfire appeal. Pouch dimensions and addresses for where to send them are available at the Byron Bay Anglican Church and at Silver Thread. The Anglican op shop in Mullum also has the patterns and some needles are in stock. St Vincents op shop in Mullum also has secondhand needles for sale. St John’s School Mullumbimby Student Representative Council led by school captains, Jarrah Gibney and Brittany McDonald, along with staff and students arranged for a coin line on Friday February 13. Proceeds were donated to ‘Vinnies Fire Appeal’. The line was 34 metres long with notes and coins generously donated by students. In all a total of $771.20 was raised.

Steiner school celebrates 21st

Teacher Lyn McCormick with students Jake Taylor, Madeline Tresselt and Indra de Saxe.

Have you ever been a part of Cape Byron Rudolf Steiner School? Over Friday night and Saturday, March 6 and 7, the school will be celebrating, reuniting, reminiscing, revisiting. All who have been enriched by the school are invited to share in this ‘coming of age’ journey. Friday night will be a chance to share, laugh, catch up, break bread and share wine, and dance at the Buddha Bar. Meal, wine, music, performances, images all provided. BYO stories, laughs and memories.

Saturday will be a time to revisit and recognise. Performances and food will surround official commemoration, tours, and stories of the school by the founders. Past students, teachers, parents and friends of the school – organise a table or group, or come as you are. Tickets and further information available on 6684 7400. When a group of other visionaries, including Lyn McCormick (pictured), came together to establish a school, Lyn had no idea how life chang-

ing the journey would be. Lyn taught and guided the children as they left kindergarten and entered Class 1. ‘I imagined a school where students could enjoy the beauty and the soul nourishment that Steiner education. I imagined that this coupled with the fruits of the unique Byron Shire culture would allow them to enjoy their education and in time be inspired to take their place among leaders of the adult world. My dream has become a wonderful reality.’

Bluesfest launches InDIG stage

The Troy Cassar Daley band last week helped launch the new InDIG stage for this year’s Blues Festival. At the launch Arakwal representative Yvonne Stewart gave an earnest speech remarking on the frailty of the current elders and acknowledging ‘the land that we are standing on is our camping ground. The high

cultural value of the land we indigenous heritage with major are standing on is recognised artists from Australia and the by the Byron at Byron and the Pacific Rim. ancestors that are buried here.’ Ms Stewart also mentioned that the other blues festivals don’t acknowledge the land they are on but said ‘we can all work towards that.’ With support from Events NSW, the new stage showcases

Mardi Gras on film in the Bay Can’t make it to Mardi Gras in Sydney this year? Dendy Byron Bay Cinemas and Queerscreen will be presenting the cream of the 2009 Mardi Gras Film Festival on March 12 to 14. This year’s program highlights the lighthearted side of queer cinema, beginning with the opening night film Were the World Mine. If Shakespeare had written a gay musical this would be its modern day remake, with a boys’ school production of A Midsummer Night’s Dream turning the whole town gay in this musical romantic comedy. Boystown is a funny, sexy thriller from Spain that will have you rushing to check on granny’s welfare. Gay men have a reputation worldwide for moving into run-down areas and transforming them into real estate paradises, and Madrid’s Chueca district is their latest target. The only problem is, Chueca is populated by little old ladies who refuse to sell up and move on. I Can’t Think Straight is a romance that sees star-crossed lovers facing cross-cultural confusion. When Londonbased Jordanian, Tala, meets British Indian Leyla, it’s love at first sight, but with neither of the women having had a samesex relationship before, traditional Indian parents and an elaborate Palestinian wedding for the couple to contend with, the course of true love becomes decidedly rocky. From Sweden with love comes Patrick, Age 1.5, a spirited romantic comedy about the ups and downs of adoption. Swedish gay couple Sven and Goran are, due to an advertising typo, sent a homophobic 15 year old street kid instead of a baby boy aged 1.5. Tickets are $20 for opening night which includes pre-film drinks, $13/$10 for the rest of the program, and are on sale now at Dendy Byron Bay Cinemas, or phone 6680 855.

Brunswick Heads Public School was the first school to register for the Record Kite Attempt at the Kites and Bikes Festival day in Brunswick Heads in March. Spirit Bootcamp at Brunswick was the first business team to register for the record attempt and the team will be out in their red T-shirts flying for the record and supporting the charity beneficiaries, Our Kids. Organiser of this part of the

festival, Lisa Parkes, is thrilled that 35 scouts are participating, since it was the scouts who organised to set the current Australian record of 1127 in Glenelg SA in 2007. She is, however, a bit concerned that many participating groups might leave their registration until the last minute. â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;All the groups who have already expressed interest need to make the commitment

online as soon as possible at www.kitesandbikes.com.au or at the Brunswick Visitor Centre, where the kite kits are being dispatched. â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Kite kits need to be purchased from Sydney and put together by the Visitor Centre volunteers and this canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t just all happen in the last week or on the final registration day.â&#x20AC;&#x2122; The Brunswick Valley Rescue Squad, the SES, the Brunswick

Heads Fire Brigade and the Cancer Council are providing marshals for the zones of 100 participants, who will be lined up along the beach in their club, school or business colours.

Kids with attitude rule comedy In a few weeks, kids from all around the shire will be finding their funny and learning how to use it: for good and for evil. For the third year running, Mandy Nolan is conducting ‘Funny Kids’, a standup comedy workshop especially designed for kids. Like all her workshops it climaxes in a big onstage show, with the kids performing their first three minute routine at The Big Joke Comedy Festival on Saturday March 28. But Mandy doesn’t just throw them in the deep end. She gets in and teaches them to swim. ‘I guide the kids every step of the way,’ she says, ‘They catch on pretty quick. Standup is a genre that they are familiar with and kids love comedy. It’s perfect for them because they are still making sense of themselves and the world and everything just seems so confusing sometimes. Comedy is the ultimate way to work through the confusion.’ The class is open to kids aged 10 to 14, with many of the kids who have already done the comedy course deciding to do it again. One girl is attempting it for the third time. At just 10 years old she’s hooked. So why is she doing it? ‘Because it’s fun. You get to learn things about being up on stage and doing comedy and you get to play fun games and you get to learn how to not be scared in front of a big audience and speak up for yourself.’ So what are the kind of things a ten year old might want to talk about? ‘I am going to talk about being a middle child and how all the other people in your family gang up on you. Once you are the middle child you always stay the middle child.’ So what about onstage nerves? It’s a big challenge for

a little person. ‘Well, you get scared and nervous and you forget what you are going to say even though it’s at the tip of your tongue. I want to do it again to see if I am better this time and I like being on stage.’ Kids do have the ability to say things as they are. Tact doesn’t come into it. When asked why learning comedy was a good thing, the young comedy devotee says, ‘It gives you a sense of humour to know what is funny and what isn’t funny. You know when people say a not funny joke and no-one laughs at it

because it’s not funny – well, I don’t want to be like that.’ The Big Joke Comedy Festival’s Funny Kids workshop still has some spaces available although this year’s intake is being limited to 20 kids. Funny Kids kicks off with the first full day workshop on Saturday March 7 with Mandy Nolan. Places are $120 each and include the workshop program, a 1:1 writing session, rehearsals and their final performance. To register, or to get more information phone Mandy on 6684 3443 or email mandy@ mandynolan.com.au.

Two workshops on weed and native plant identification and bush regeneration are coming up. The first is weed and native plant identification at Goonellabah nursery on February 26, and the second, practical introduction to bush regeneration, at Boatharbour Nature Reserve, on March 20. Places are limited. If you want further details or to register for the workshops, contact Emma Wagner at EnviTE on 6621 9588 or email emmaw@envite.org.au. The workshops are part of a three year project called â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Restoration of lowland rainforest on floodplainâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; at Boatharbour, which was initiated by Wilsons River Landcare and funded by the NSW Environmental Trust. EnviTE has assisted with the planning and development of this project and is administrator of the grant. The project employs professional bush regenerators to rehabilitate significant riparian vegetation over a one kilometre area along the bank of the Wilsons River, and includes part of Boatharbour Nature Reserve and two private properties. The area is being threatened by three major weed species: asparagus fern, madeira

The state government will consult on a new statewide policy to prepare for predicted sea level rises caused by climate change. Deputy Premier and Minister for the Environment and Climate Change, Carmel Tebbutt, and Minister for Planning, Kristina Keneally, released a draft policy for consultation with coastal councils, key stakeholders and the public. â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;The government is taking a coordinated, proactive approach to the long term issue of climate change,â&#x20AC;&#x2122; Ms Tebbutt

said in a press release. â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;The science is in â&#x20AC;&#x201C; we know sea levels will rise along our coastline this century. â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;There is strong national and international evidence, including from the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change and the CSIRO, indicating sea level increases of up to 40cm to 2050 and 90cm to 2100.â&#x20AC;&#x2122; On this basis, the government is proposing to adopt these sea level rise benchmarks. â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;These benchmarks will mean the Government, local

councils, the community and the private sector can make informed decisions about adapting to sea level rise,â&#x20AC;&#x2122; Ms Tebbutt said. Ms Keneally said predicted future sea level rises represented a real challenge for land use planning which NSW had to begin to address now.

the Afghani people are strong enough to achieve a victory over the occupying US, NATO and Australian forces I believe they will be strong enough to create a better life for themselves after the occupiers have been expelled.

Barack Obama, who has achieved unprecedented global approval since winning the US presidency, has just increased Americaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s troop commitment to Afghanistan by 17,000. This was 13,000 less than what US commander, General David McKiernan, had requested. When George W Bush was in the White House, and the top brass demanded more troops, more hardware, more money and more waterboarding, it was rubberstamped by Vice President Dick Cheney and ticked off by Defence Secretary Donald Rumsfeld, both representatives of the US military-industrialintelligence complex. Obama is less compliant. Kevin Rudd should be too. The US governmentâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s military spending in 2008 was $710 billion. Manufacturing weapons, warplanes, warships and missiles is one of the biggest single sectors of the US economy, employing millions of workers directly and indirectly. Obama cannot switch off

unsought, by the military industrial complex. The potential for the disastrous rise of misplaced power exists and will persist. â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;We must never let the weight of this combination endanger our liberties or democratic processes. We should take nothing for granted. Only an alert and knowledgeable citizenry can compel the proper meshing of the huge industrial and military machinery of defense with our peaceful methods and goals, so that security and liberty may prosper together.â&#x20AC;&#x2122; Ikeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s warning was delivered 48 years ago; imagine the antidemocratic powers that these blood-drenched corporations wield today. And Eisenhower was a five-star general, the Supreme Commander of Land Forces in Europe at the end of World War Two and a two-term Republican US President who knew a thing or two about the Pentagon, the arms manufacturers and their influence in Washington. The crazed militarists who support the invasion and occupation of Afganistan maintain

that the Afghan people â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;must payâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; for 9/11 even though no Afghan national was involved in the terrorist air attacks on New Yorkâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Twin Towers and the Pentagon. Those responsible were from a terrorist cell from Al Qaeda, mainly Saudi Arabians, who were living under the protection of the Taliban regime. According to Washington and NATO the entire Afghan population has to be collectively punished for something they werenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t involved in and knew nothing about. That sounds to me like a war crime. The plain truth is that America and its war allies cannot win militarily in Afghanistan. It is impossible. As Oleg Kubanov, a former Russian officer in Afghanistan told Reuters on the 20th anniversary of the Russian retreat from Kabul: â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s like fighting sand. No force in the world can get the better of the Afghans. â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s their holy land; it doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t matter to them if youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re Russian or American. Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re all soldiers to them.â&#x20AC;&#x2122; Historian Victor Kremenyuk told ABC correspondent Scott Bevan: â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;If they [countries with forces in Afghanistan] donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t learn, if they still think that availability of the air force, missiles, tanks and so on can help them in dealing with that world, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a crucial mistake; itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a failure!â&#x20AC;&#x2122; While a Red Army veteran and now Moscow region Governor Boris Gromov said: â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s better to negotiate with the Afghans to solve everything by peaceful means.â&#x20AC;&#x2122; Bushâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s military attack on Afghanistan on October 7, 2001, called â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Operation Enduring Freedomâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;, has led to enduring agony for the Afghani people, the spread of Islamic fundamentalism and thousands of civilian and military casualties. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s time for a peace offensive, not a military surge.

Why can’t I holiday let in my street? I am now a permanent resident of South Beach Road at Brunswick Heads and was dismayed to learn that this area has been targeted for exclusion in the proposed model for holiday letting in the Byron Shire. I bought my property more than 12 years ago and was able to afford this purchase only because of holiday letting. Most of my tenants in that time were regulars; some had been coming here for over 30 years. They cherished not only my home but its unique position and the overall sense of community that embodies this peaceful seaside village. Why has this street been discriminated against when the entire rest of the town is designated as suitable for holiday

letting? It meets all the criteria as set out in the ‘frequently asked questions’ document explaining the rationale behind the new proposal: ‘These areas were chosen based on proximity to the beach and areas that are within walking distance to the town centre, tourist facilities and services and cultural experiences.’ If the major reason for banning holiday lets here is because of holidaymakers disrupting local residents, I’d like to point out that I have been disturbed just once in six months by a late-night party – perhaps they were the owners! But all of us in this part of town were affected on Australia Day when groups of local youths gathered to drink ille-

gally and party at South Beach Park. It seems draping an Australian flag over your shoulders gives you licence to do as you please on our national day. The rowdy gathering spoilt the park for everyone. Who would enjoy having a family picnic anywhere near such a group, or even the next morning, when refuse and discarded and broken beer bottles littered the area? The unique South Beach Road area has been popular with holidaying tenants for many decades. These people make a large financial contribution to the town’s businesses. And what about the property owners here, who depend on holiday letting to meet their

Joanne Bradley (Letters, February 3) believes the aircraft noise comes from the pilot training school in Coolangatta. Alan Ramsay (Letters, February 10) says it stems from the Byron glider pilots, and Len Hend (Letters, February 17) reckons the noise comes mostly from the Byron Bay skydivers.

(Echo, February 17/2). It appears $20,000 in public grant money has been received. How much has been squandered on this over-thetop marketing campaign? Brunswick Heads features in newspaper ads and articles from Sydney to Brisbane, including SMH travel section last weekend.

How many people do festival organisers hope to cram into Bruns for this family friendly, fun filled weekend? The kite and bike event is primarily a

Toilets as art

Public toilets: for a tourist mecca that is Byron these facilities are despicable! Especially when they could be beautified as art projects by the many talented youth yearning for walls for canvas. Not to mention the local ratepayers who deserve their hard-earned cash invested in their town and frequently visited public facilities. For all those who agree, a petition for these upgrades will soon be circulating.

Woolworths, planning and political agendas dents to prevent Woolworths building a supermarket in Mullumbimby has exposed many undesirable and undemocratic aspects of the legal system as it relates to planning in NSW. Furthermore, it once again illustrates the relative powerlessness of the ACCC to prevent monopolies occurring. The first issue relates to an organisation obtaining a development consent which can then be sold to another organisation. For most projects this would not matter but in the case of a supermarket, the new company might operate in a different manner to the original proponent which could be to the detriment of the community. This has happened in the case at Mullumbimby where the local community would have strenuously resisted the development consent had they known that it was Woolworths. The PlanCarlos A Gutierrez ning Act requires changing so Myocum as to allow the community to be heard before the development The struggle by many resi- consent could be transferred to

â&#x2013;  I cannot help re-entering the debate on the issue of the Woolworths supermarket after reading Deborah Lillyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s letter loaded with a political agenda. There was a strong vocal group of community members that fought hard against the rezoning of the Station Street site into a supermarket in 2005. We wanted no supermarket development on that site, full stop. At that time we lost the battle, not surprising given that there were over 1,700 letters of support for the Mallamâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s supermarket proposal sent to Mr Sartor. Many of these people now object to Woolworths coming to town so, where is the integrity of the debate? Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s all right to drive a political agenda against large corporations but please donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t do it under the disguise of wanting to protect the interests of the Mullumbimby community.

to you a very good template that clearly outlines the consequences of breaches on any of the three major areas. To sum up, they state zero tolerance for noise and behaviour issues. Holding a party for instance would result in immediate

eviction and full loss of bond. A noise breach â&#x20AC;&#x201C; just the renters laughing and talking loudly â&#x20AC;&#x201C; would result in an attendance by the Noise Security personnel and then a fine of $150. 3. After booking and the return of the booking terms and conditions, the owner should

another company. Planning NSW should not be allowed to takeover a development consent application from Council even if the developer is having difficulty in obtaining the development consent. Council should remain as an equal partner with Planning NSW and negotiation should take place between these two parties and the developer to try to find a solution. Planning NSW is remote from the local community and therefore does not appreciate local concerns. Furthermore, it seems to be in favour of developers and does not act on community concerns. This is an unfortunate trend and the local community feels powerless to influence the final decision. The ACCC is concerned about monopolies but it is unable to stop another one occurring in Mullumbimby if the other small supermarket is forced to close down when it cannot compete with Woolworths pricing policy. This may

â&#x2013;  Woolworths may well like us to believe that nothing now stands in the way of their dream. As recently stated by Byron Shire Councilâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s (BSC) Director of Planning, Ray Darney: â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;A

then speak or email the renter and reiterate the rules. 4. If there is a noise breach, ensure that the HLO is called in â&#x20AC;&#x201C; that way there is a direct and immediate consequence to their actions, ie a stern talking to and fine. 5. Ensure there is very visible

signage saying no noise after 10pm, reasonable noise during the day. 6. Take big bonds â&#x20AC;&#x201C; $500 for up to four people, $1,000 for six people and $1,500 for eight people. Money keeps them honest. All I can say is that this works

well apply to other shops such as the two butchers, fish mongers, greengrocers, bakers and others. ACCC needs to have its responsibilities increased so that it can look into matters such as the likely closing of existing shops that provide employment, support the local community by donating funds and buy fresh local produce when they can. The loss of competition would allow Woolworths to increase prices as it has done elsewhere. It is imperative that changes in the legislation are made. I wonder whether the NSW government and the federal government in the case of the ACCC will bother to take any action. Chris Abraham

condition of consent remains requiring that a Section 68 Application must be obtained for the onsite sewer management system prior to the issue of a Construction Certificate. The Section 68 Certificate can only be issued by Council and this will allow Council officers to again revisit the effluent disposal issues in relation to the site.â&#x20AC;&#x2122; Although down in Sydney the Department of Planning may have had too many Christmas drinks and folded under the weight of Woolworths lobbyists, as consolation they would have known BSC would ultimately have the final say on Woolworths bumbling mishmash of onsite sewage proposals. Clearly before any earth works or concrete, a construction certificate, and as a condition of consent a Section 68 approval are required for the onsite sewage system and only BSC can issue that approval. BSC has stated very clearly that what has been proposed is

flawed and inadequate. There is no way BSC will grant a Section 68 approval that sets a precedent for dodgy, inadequate onsite sewage systems on an urban site that is waterlogged for long periods and floodprone. Woolworths may well be forced to wait for the upgrading of the Mullumbimby town sewage system before a construction certificate can be issued. Before Woolworths can connect to Mullumâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s sewage system, all upgrade work will be required to demonstrate that it can perform to its EPA licence plus BSC will have to fix the longtime problem of raw sewage overflows into the Brunswick River due to Mullumâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s grossly inadequate sewage collection pipework. We may well continue to enjoy the town of Mullumbimby without the â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;big box storeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; for some time to come.

like magic. I would urge all Byron holiday letters to get more proactive, and if you need assistance or coaching ask the HLO for help. It is a very supportive and informative organisation. If you follow these guidelines you will find it is just soooo much easier â&#x20AC;&#x201C; the property is cleaner, tenants more helpful. We all just need rules to follow. I leave you with these thoughts. More than 60% of noise complaints come from noise made by permanent tenants and permanent residents. Further, by outlawing holiday letting, you will simply push future Byron tourism construction towards Gold Coast highrise style development â&#x20AC;&#x201C; demand will create supply and the department of planning in Sydney will be bypassing

Byron Shire Council as it did with Becton â&#x20AC;&#x201C; oops sorry, there goes our town infrastructure contributions, again! A good example are the Rapunzel Towers, Gold Coast circa 1950s. Lastly, the anonymous writer of â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Time to regulate holiday lettingâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; (Echo, February 17) hit the nail on the head with â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;aggressive drunken yobsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;. So could it be that we have an alcohol problem not a holiday letting problem? So you might want to ask who is lobbying (and funding the lobbying) for the outlawing of holiday letting in the State â&#x20AC;&#x201C; the Australian Hotels Association. Just remember, holiday lets donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t sell alcohol â&#x20AC;&#x201C; hotels do! We are being manipulated by big business yet again. So why donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t we act smater not

I was interested to read in Peggy Balfour’s letter in last week’s Echo that some effort is being made to create fire proof housing for the Australian bush. For many years, I had wondered about the mentality of the people of the American mid-west who continue to build timber framed, weatherboard houses only to have them destroyed by hurricanes every four years, often with injury and loss of life. So in my mind, I designed a house suitable for the area’s climate. I imagined a concrete dome with no projections that provided purchase to the wind. Windows and verandahs would be recessed behind arches set into the dome with all openRobin Harrison ings, including those for venticontinued overleaf Coorabell

There seems to have been some disaster that occurred in Victoria due to people relying on electrical and mechanical devices. This type of design could be adapted to the Australian bush. It should have good solar passive, eco-friendly aspects if properly ventilated. I thought of the design in America as providing protection for people. In Australia I would think of it only to protect property, thus not putting

people in the position of making decisions about staying or leaving. What I imagine is at the first sign of danger, people could quickly throw the outdoor furniture and pack the bikes into the hall, lock up the shutters, pack the kids, the pets, the bank card, ID and insurance policy and leave.

number of days with very high or extreme fire danger rating would increase significantly’, especially in northern NSW. Ground litter can be seen two ways – as fuel, or as mulch that holds in moisture and causes the bush to be well supplied with nutrients and water for its growth. Removing litter because it is seen as fuel degrades the bush and inhibits its ability to provide sinks for carbon emissions. Further, the drying out of soil through litter depletion increases the possibility of plants displaying drier characteristics rather than lush, thus making them easier to burn. We appear to be entering a period where people are increasingly being called upon to make decisions which have to do either with personal or global survivability. The use of air conditioners is an obvious one, where electricity use solves the problem of being too hot at a personal level, but adds to global warming. Similarly, the leaving of litter increases personal fire risk but ameliorates global warming. Early settlers on the north coast found the Big Scrub difficult to burn because it was too wet and lush. Fire authorities and the CSIRO could combine with studies on the relative combustibility of shrubs, domesticated vines and small trees commonly used in this area by householders as a guide to their use as lush mini-canopies with the ability to keep the under-storey comparatively moist. As an added benefit, this vegetation could act as the precursors of polycultural orchards, and mini-duplicators

Hospice service changes its name The local, grassroots and longstanding community volunteer service, known as Amitayus Hospice Service, has decided to change its name to Byron Hospice Service. Says the service: ‘Since 1992, Amitayus has been offering the community a service in which people who are living with a life-ending illness, and their primary carers, can get practical and meaningful assistance in a wide range of ways when it is decided that the ill person will live their final days at home. The emphasis has always been on supporting the best possible life quality in the final days. ‘Most often the Amitayus service is as simple as being a caring and helpful person, often as part of a team, who supplies voluntary, calm, compassionate and loving strength as the dying person becomes weaker and their primary carers be-

come more and more tired and careworn, thus more needing of support. Under the new name, we will continue to train, supply and coordinate volunteers who are motivated to render service to the dying and their carers. ‘Why the name change? ‘Over the years there have been many changes in the Byron area. From a time when there were only basic and “barebones” public palliative care services and there were many people in the area who were not connected with immediate family, Amitayus was quite busy supporting quite large numbers of people with widely different illnesses who were not satisfied with dying in a hospital. Amitayus was started as and felt comfortable in presenting as a “Buddhistbased” organisation, thus its name, extending compassionate and loving service for the

Council Roundup

SPC: strategic move or waste of time? Michael McDonald

Right at the start of Byron Shire Council’s first strategic planning committee (SPC) meeting for 2009 last Thursday, Cr Basil Cameron questioned whether or not it was fulfilling the purpose of its constitution. He pointed out, rightly, that not all items on the agenda were strategic issues and there was no mention of a 25 year plan meant to delineate the boundaries of strategy. In fact, most of the items could have been handled by an ordinary meeting, forgoing the SPC process which only has advisory authority. The raison d’etre of the SPC is dubious if nothing happens which could not be done in the course of ‘normal’ business. Before the meeting proper, chaired by deputy mayor Tom Tabart in the mayor’s absence, Country Energy representatives gave a lightweight presentation of the Lismore-Mullumbimby powerline upgrade, which pretty much involves installing 132KV lines on bigger poles in the place of 66KV lines from Mullum to Ewingsdale and thence on a circuit back to Lismore. Hardly a mention was made of the Skinners Shoot substation, though we did learn a location for the Brunswick Heads substation is still

being explored. The 66KV line is being overloaded by energyhungry consumers, according to CE. Cr Diane Woods expressed a yearning for fewer blackouts at Brunswick Heads. After much to-ing and froing, Council tied 4-4 on a vote to note the expenditure of Council funds cleaning up after Schoolies Week and to establish ‘an inter-agency and community representative project focus group [try saying that after a few drinks] to develop policies and explore costsharing opportunities to effectively manage the event and its impact on Council operations and public safety and amenity’. As the SPC chairman does not have a casting vote, the matter remains undetermined – ‘much ado about nothing’, said Cr Tabart. Another reason for not bothering with the SPC. The cost of the schoolies cleanup, mostly at the Byron Bay beachfront, was $13,674 above normal council costs. ‘The wide-spread use of glass containers at these sites also provides specific issues relating to public safety and during the 2008 Schoolies event there were numerous complaints about this issue,’ according to the staff report. ‘There were also recorded cases of people sustaining injuries as a result of broken glass on public beach-

es.’ Perhaps the pubs and bottleshops could be persuaded to issue schoolies with polyactide containers, which are easily compostable. Cr Woods felt the differential business rate handled Council’s extra costs in the Bay and no further imposts should be put on local merchants. She has a point. If Council’s costs continue to climb, then business has an interest in educating schoolies so the rate does

not increase. But as Cr Ross Tucker pointed out, schoolies are not exactly in the mood for education after just escaping 12 years of it. (Wishing to demonstrate no animosity to schoolies Cr Simon Richardson pointed out that he was a schoolie at Byron Bay in 1989. Cr Patrick Morrissey volunteered that he celebrated leaving school in the Bay in 1979. When I left school in 1969, there was no schoolies week, it was four years till the first use of the handheld mobile phone, and the electric light bulb had just been invented. As a diversion that summer, I rode a bicycle from Sydney to Melbourne with a friend as a fundraiser for UNICEF. It was pretty wild, but the only broken glass came from hoons throwing bottles from passing cars.) By the time I left the meeting – as much as it is my fervent desire to stay in the chambers all day, other matters intervene – Council had also voted 8-0 to note the submissions received on Council’s intention to prohibit recreational kite surfing within specified areas of Main Beach, Byron Bay, and to recommend to Council it establish another of those ‘community and inter-agency project focus groups’ to assist in the development of a Council policy on

kite surfing. Cr Tabart was also successful 8-0 with a motion to establish in the interim a kite surfing area away from Main Beach, based on public submissions. The problem is that once kite surfers have launched into the ocean, they are no longer within Council’s jurisdiction. Before a member of the public gets sliced by a kite wire on its watch, the Marine Parks Authority also needs to look at the problem. A summary of the submissions for and against is available in Council’s agenda of February 19 at www.byron. nsw.gov.au.

Do we want to set the world on fire? Dailan Pugh

The recent extreme weather events and disastrous fires in south-east Australia have put paid to the claims of global warming deniers that the world is cooling. These events have provided a glimpse into the future being created by the inaction the deniers demand. Unfortunately this future may be more extreme and closer than we thought. In 2005 I followed the tourist route to the best Murray River redgums South Australia had to offer. They were all dead, along with the nearby wetlands. An assessment of the lower Murray the previous year found that 75% of the River Red Gums and Black Box were dead or dying. Since then droughts have persisted, inflows to the Murray River have reached record lows, and temperatures have soared. The extreme weather conditions which have plagued the Murray for the past seven years reached a crescendo a few weeks ago. For 12 days the lower Murray baked in over 40 degree heat, breaking all previous records. Ancient redgums dropped their branches as their trunks split open. This was part of a heat wave that encompassed South Australia, Victoria, southern NSW and Tasmania, breaking nu-

merous temperature and heatwave records. Temperatures peaked at over 48 degrees at some places. Record high temperatures were set for half of Tasmania and records for February were set over 87% of Victoria. Grey-headed Flying Foxes and Ringtail Possums fell out of their trees. Fruit baked on trees, grapes withered on the vine and lettuces cooked in gardens. Power usage surged to record levels as supplies faltered and failed. Train lines and ferris wheels buckled. Over 700 people were admitted to hospitals with heat-related problems and dozens of people died. On Saturday February 7 temperatures reached 46.4 degrees in Melbourne, surpassing the previous record set on Black Friday in 1939 by 0.8 degrees (coincidentally the temperature rise attributed to global warming since then).

Extreme fire danger The Forest Fire Danger Index accounts for a combination of temperature, relative humidity, wind speed and soil moisture to identify relative fire danger. Indices greater than 50 represent Extreme Fire Danger where fire suppression becomes virtually impossible. Indices greater than 100 represent Catastrophic Fire Danger

and are very rare. On Saturday the fire danger was catastrophic, with indices peaking at over 400. Another record. It was a disaster waiting to happen. When strong winds travelling at 100km an hour arrived in the afternoon, with the help of arsonists, Victoria exploded into flames, ultimately burning over 500,000ha, incinerating 1,831 homes, injuring over 500 people, killing over 200 people and killing and maiming millions of native animals. And it is not over yet.

Long-term impact So far the fires have burnt around 20 per cent of Melbourne’s water catchment areas. In Victoria’s Mountain Ash forests water use for regeneration in the decades following bushfires can reduce water runoff by up to 50%, taking some 150 years to recover in line with forest maturity. A reduction in stream flows and a drying of the landscape will be one of the long-term consequences of the fire regrowth. Fires also help perpetuate themselves by encouraging growth of fire tolerant species which, along with the eucalypt regrowth, have characteristics which encourage fire. The bushfires have released tens of millions of tonnes of carbon into the atmosphere.

One estimate putting it as almost equal to Australia’s industrial emissions for an entire year (lucky that we don’t count carbon from bushfires). While making a mockery of Australia’s feeble attempts to reduce carbon emissions, the fires’ contribution to global warming is also self perpetuating. Recent estimates are that for Melbourne unchecked global warming could result in a doubling of days over 350C and up to a 140% increase in extreme fire weather days by the middle of this century. The frequency of catastrophic fires could increase from one every 33 years to one every two to three years. What is most worrying is that the current weather patterns are more akin to what is expected for 2050 rather than now. The good news is that Brisbane only has half the number of extreme fire danger days as Melbourne’s current average of 23.4 per decade and that Brisbane is only expected to experience a 90% increase in extreme fire danger days, and still no catastrophic fire danger days, by 2050. Hopefully long term cyclic weather influences will ensure that Byron will experience predominately wet weather for the next decade. This is still no reason for complacency as, thanks to the deniers, on one sunny Spring day our turn will come.

One night of Compassion

A hauntingly beautiful collection of paintings from artist Spero Jones will be on display in Bangalow for one night only, February 28. ‘Compassion is a series of studies of couples exuding tenderness and affection,’ according to the exhibition’s organisers. ‘The larger than life, simple yet powerful forms serve as a refreshing and uplifting reminder that compassion can and does exist. Spero’s works are created from oils, acrylics, spray, watercolour and gold leaf. Being in their presence is said to open the heart.’ After leaving Avalon in Sydney with his family at the age of five, Spero Jones has lived most of his life near Alstonville. While he has been creating artworks for nearly a decade, he has only been painting his soulful images of love over the last few years. With these

works he has enjoyed successful exhibitions in both Brisbane and Northern Rivers galleries. ‘The inspiration for my works of Compassion came more from an elimination process,’ said Spero. ‘I didn’t want to paint The Pass or the lighthouse or birds or landscapes or single people or depressing images or fruit bowls or houses or abstracts or dogs playing poker... The form of two people gives a very wide configuration of positions and tone. Also they are something I hope people would feel happy about having in their homes.’ Spero invites the local community to join him to celebrate Compassion, his stunning collection of recent works at the RSL Hall in Station Street, Bangalow, on Saturday February 28 from 6pm to 9pm.

Veselin Topalov took an early lead against Gata Kamsky in the Candidates Final currently underway in Sofia, Bulgaria. The eight game match will decide who will challenge World Champion Viswanath Anand. As predicted by many, Topalov’s precise opening preparation gave him a large time advantage in the early games. In the second game Kamsky fell 50 minutes behind on the clock after just seven moves. Eight moves later Kamsky, with only 13 minutes left on the clock for his next 27 moves, made

CHESS by Ian Rogers Play at Byron Services, Mon 7-10pm; Mullum Poinciana Café, Sat 2-5pm the foolhardy decision not to avoid a time forfeit. The effort of exchange pieces and force a draw. trying to survive a bad position ‘I wanted to play [for a win],’ while moving instantly proved said Kamsky sheepishly after the too much and Kamsky soon congame. ‘His position looked very ceded the game, given below. However, the American fought promising,’ admitted Topalov. Kamsky, who seemed to be back and evened the score in spending as much time watching the fourth game, in which, sigthe giant screen behind the play- nificantly, he was careful not to ers as the board in front of him, fall behind on the clock. After soon lost control of the game and Kamsky’s debacle in the open secby move 25 he needed to make ond game, commentators were a move every four seconds to surprised that Topalov should choose to defend a closed Ruy Lopez, which is perfectly adapted to his opponent’s style. The Sofia match has so far proceeded without off-board incidents, although only after security checks described by one organiser as ‘unbelievable and surrealistic’. Kamsky’s last-minute requests – moving the audience away from the front rows of the theatre and covering any avenues of natural light into the arena – were all accommodated while Topalov appears happy just to playing on home territory.

Activist Theatre and the serious comedy of Alan Clements Jo Garnett

Alan Clements, existential hipster, former Buddhist monk, war correspondent, author, activist, and ‘the most spiritually astute humorist in America today,’ according to the Maui News, kicks off his tenth Australian national tour on Saturday night February 28 at 8pm at the Byron Bay Community and Cultural Centre, premiering his new one-man show, ‘Spiritually Incorrect II – In Defense of Being Human.’ Billed as a night of liberating satire that critics call ‘transformational theatre’, ‘existential entertainment’ and ‘serious comedy that ignites conscience and activism’, Clements’ shows are benefits to raise awareness of Aung San Suu Kyi – Burma’s imprisoned Nobel Peace laureate. Clements was the first American to ordain as a Burmese Buddhist monk and lived in a monastery in Burma through the late 1970s and 80s. During this time he was frequently thrown out of the county by the xenophobic regime and in 1996 was branded ‘an enemy of the state’ and ‘permanently blacklisted’ from reentering the country. Clements has written, and spoken, extensively on Burma’s nonviolent struggle for freedom. His first book Burma: The Next Killing Fields served as the template for the feature film Beyond Rangoon, and his Byron Bay show coincides with the Australian release of his newly updated and revised, internationally acclaimed book The Voice of Hope – Conversations with Aung San Suu Kyi (Random House) and its companion volume Instinct for Freedom: A Maverick’s Guide to Spiritual Revolution (Hodder House.) Clements’ transformation from Buddhist monk and meditation teacher to maverick-activist and the stage, with his satirical brand of revolutionary theatre, was inspired,

in part, by his participation in an ‘Independence Day celebration of freedom’ at Aung San Suu Kyi’s Rangoon compound with hundreds of her fellow activists. He was awed by the moral courage of a particular performer, U Par Lay and his troupe, who gave a performance humorously satirising Burma’s Big Brother despite having just been released from six years imprisonment and knowing they would be rearrested. ‘It was my “holy shit moment”,’ Clements says. ‘I heard my conscience calling, encouraging me to “rise up and speak out”, say what I really feel, regardless if anyone was listening, set aside the cost of truth for U Par Lay, pounding rocks for six years, twenty hours a day. Thus, the birth of “spiritually incorrect”, a metaphor for breaking lockstep with conformity and fear and living your dream, fearlessly, openly, fully. ‘Ultimately, my show, besides having fun, is about igniting our most liberated space of inner being and, to-

gether, celebrating the beauty of freedom through laughter, spontaneity, and tears.’ Clements believes ‘the stage is a place to be real, and not pretend to be real. ‘To me, that means being authentic and authenticity is just that – the unrehearsed heart, spontaneous, uncensored, real; anything but scripted.’ The soul of the show ‘encourages hope and creative actions – any action that nonviolently challenges repression with courage, dignity and compassion, and elevates the sacred, environmental sanity, and a deep caring for our shared existence. ‘Each of us is capable of greatness. Aung San Suu Kyi’s nonviolent revolution of the heart invites us all to put our hope into action and in so doing, change the world.’ ■ To buy tickets for Saturday night’s show go to www.ChrisHooper.com.au, in person at the Community Centre box office or by phone on 6685 6807. The show will be repeated on Saturday March 28 at 8 pm.

The creation of Cape Byron Marine Park D eclared on 1 November 2002, the Cape Byron Marine Park covers approximately 22,000 hectares from Brunswick Heads in the north to Lennox Head in the south. The Marine Park extends from the mean high water mark on the mainland and islands, out to three nautical miles offshore and includes the tidal waters of the Brunswick River, Belongil and Tallow Creeks. The Cape Byron area has high conservation values and is important to the cultural heritage of both Aboriginal and non-Aboriginal people. It contains many natural wonders to explore. Local marine habitats include a range of sandy beaches, rocky shores, reefs, submerged pinnacles, small rocky islands, coral communities, riverine estuaries, coastal creeks and lakes. Its waters

support a high diversity of tropical and temperate marine life, including many species of dolphins, fish, seabirds, marine plants and invertebrates such as sponges, corals and anemones. Rare and threatened species such as sea turtles, grey nurse shark and black cod call these waters home. Whales and

shorebirds migrate through the Marine Park and can be easily seen from beaches and the Cape. The waters surrounding Julian Rocks, the focal point of the Bay, support a rich diversity including over 500 species of fish, 114 species of molluscs, 100 species of marine algae, and 30 species of corals.

Marine parks help conserve our Stateâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s marine life for present and future generations, while providing a great opportunity to improve public appreciation, understanding and enjoyment of our unique marine environment. There are six marine parks in NSW, located at Lord Howe

Island, Solitary Islands, Port Stephens â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Great Lakes, Jervis Bay, Batemans Bay and Cape Byron. Marine parks in NSW are zoned for multiple use to ensure ongoing conservation of the marine environment by protecting representative examples of the different habitats and the animals

and plants they support, and to allow for the sustainable use of areas of the Marine Park. Activities such as swimming, diving, surfing and boating are permitted in all zones, however restrictions apply to activities such as commercial and recreational fishing, spearfishing, collecting and

anchoring. The four types of zones within the Cape Byron Marine Park are: sanctuary, habitat protection, general use and special purpose zones. Activities permitted within these zones are restricted according to their impact on the marine environment. Sanctuary or ‘notake’ zones comprise approximately 27.5% (6,105 Ha) of the park and provide the highest level of protection by prohibiting all forms of fishing, collecting and anchoring on reefs. Sanctuary zones are established to promote the conservation of marine species and habitats by providing habitat protection and habitat recovery, maintenance of ecological processes, refuges for vulnerable species, development of natural biological communities, and spill over of adults and juveniles into adjacent areas including fishing grounds. Habitat protection zones (18.7%, 4,160 Ha) allow for

recreational fishing and some forms of commercial fishing but not trawling. A species list and additional restrictions apply to fishers in these zones. General use zones (53.5%, 11,860 Ha) provide for a wide range of activities including both recreational and commercial fishing. Special purpose zones (0.2%, 49.4 Ha) provide for the management of special activities in the Marine Park including protection, traditional use and rehabilitation. Make sure you pick up a zoning plan users guide to Cape Byron Marine Park before going fishing or collecting in the Marine Park. Users guides are readily available at marine park offices and many outlets, including information centres, accommodation outlets, general stores and fishing supply outlets.

Fishing A

ahhh... The glorious uncertainty of fishing. Sometimes a good catch, other times nothing at all except solitude and not even a bite to interrupt your contemplation of nature. Here on the most eastern point of the mainland we have a great variety of species, due mainly to our proximity to tropical waters. Therefore we have the blue water speedsters like mackerel and wahoo, deeper water fish like cod and pearl perch, inshore snapper, tailor and the like, and the whole range available to the shore based fishers like bream, tailor, jewfish, flathead, whiting, dart, drummer and luderick. For the recreational fisherman the summer species like whiting and dart (swallow tail) are in lesser numbers as we approach the cooler weather, while bream and tailor will now improve through autumn and be at their best in winter. Many visitors believe that one cannot fish in Byron Bay – this is not the case, and despite some rather puzzling restrictions on particular areas of rock and beach, one can still find a spot not too distant where fishing is allowed. For more information, see the Marine Park Authority in Middleton St Byron Bay, ensure you have a fishing license and get out there to enjoy some healthy, happy sport.

THE STRAP

The other day I went to visit my Nanna, a woman who at 93 looks well on the way to pulling the tonne (I wonder whether the Queen has updated her centenarian birthday message and now sends an SMS?) She is the most impressive, affectionate and fiercest matriarch in my family. You donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t mess with Nanny Nolan. As a young girl I distinctly remember her telling an unfriendly grocer he could stick his pumpkin up his arse. It wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t the language she used, it was the fact that he obliged. And no it wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t a shapely butternut, it was a Queensland Blue. You can google it on any good pumpkin porn site. I was complaining to my Nanna about how hard it was to get the kids to do what theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re told. My Nanna lifted a heavy arm, the

Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m not saying that there still isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t a small percentage of kids who are badly abused, but on the whole, kids have it better than they ever have. They are loved and cherished and indulged. They donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t get the strap, they get â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;time to thinkâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; or get sent to the counsellor to work on their issues, or their parents weaken and cave and before you know it 12 year olds with spray cans are hanging out in the streets until after midnight. This is the generation that knows no boundaries. These children have not experienced the parental violence of the generations that came before them. But ironically, they are the most violent generation to date. They cut themselves, hang in gangs and beat each other up, lurk in the streets and destroy property, they call each other bitch and ho and hurl public abuse like wedding confetti. For a weekend thrill, instead of dropping a trip or pulling a cone and contemplating the wonder of the universe, they smoke Ice and head into the hills to beat up hippies having sweet tofu times in country halls. I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t endorse violence as a means of behaviour modification. But why is it when we stopped smacking our kids their behaviour suddenly spiralled out of control? Anyway, I took the strap. It hangs on a nail in the kitchen, watching over us. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s like a nuclear weapon. I have no intention of using it. Just the sight of it and its legend of fear is deterrent enough. I havenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t misbehaved once.

skin flapping as she pointed into the darkest cavern of the back porch. â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;You need the strap.â&#x20AC;&#x2122; Hanging on a nail in my dead grandfatherâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s grotto was the strap. The family strap. My eyes watered just looking at it. My family heritage of struggle and compliance, hung limply in the shadows. At the mention of its name, I am sure I saw it quiver. The strap, once an object that inspired fear and obedience, now an impotent length of leather whose sole purpose was to hold back the blind, was the symbol of a dead empire. The strap had once been powerful, it had wrapped its length around the backs of knees, it had cut the naked flesh of small bums and it had been held above my Nannaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s head buckle high with a banshee scream and a blood curdling threat. It was once a violent peacekeeper, but now it was just an old belt. My Nanna smiled: â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;I hit all my kids with that strap Mandy. I hit your father and I hit you.â&#x20AC;&#x2122; My butt tingled with the memory. I remember the strap. I only got it once. It was enough. I said, â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;We donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t hit the kids any more Nanny. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s sort of against the law.â&#x20AC;&#x2122; My Nanna humphed. â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Fat lot of good that does. Look at kids today.â&#x20AC;&#x2122; I had to admit she was right. At no time in history have children been so considered. It wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t that long ago they were the seen and not heard half humans who resided in the shadowy halls of orphanages and boarding schools. These days kids have opinions. They have passions. They have rights.

Ben Harper and John Butler â&#x20AC;&#x201C; both defining Bluesfest performers â&#x20AC;&#x201C; have worked with Festival Director Peter Noble to help program a highly personalised and musically dynamic range of artists on both Saturday and Sunday. Ben Harper proudly introduces two new artists, Grace Woodroofe and Tom Freund â&#x20AC;&#x201C; and to round out the bill, welcomes two artists in the tradition of Bluesfest, Tinariwen and AYO. The connection between talented 20 year old indie-blues chanteuse Grace Woodroofe and the distinctive

and engaging Tom Freund, is that Ben Harper is currently producing Graceâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s album, and has recently finished producing Tomâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s new album, due for release here soon. Significantly, fellow Perth native (now LA based) Grace Woodroofe was Heath Ledgerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s first signing to his Masses Music Co, a label Ledger had started with his close friend Ben Harper. Tom Freund is Harperâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s latest discovery. John Butler is a Bluesfest fan. â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;The East Coast Blues is one of those festivals an artist dreams about playing,â&#x20AC;&#x2122; he said. â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;When we first played in 2000 it was one of those pivotal life-changing moments

and it literally launched my band nationwide. I am thrilled and humbled to have Paul, Jeff, Blue King Brown, Ngaiire, Nicky and State Radio all sharing the bill with us. Thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s nothing like doing one of the best festivals in the world with peers that have inspired you, let alone all them being mates.â&#x20AC;&#x2122; For more info www.bluesfest.com.au.

FRIDAY 27

THURSDAY 26

WEDNESDAY 25

1. Despite the presence of Will Smith, there are no explosions in Hitch (NBN, Friday 9.30pm), a so-so romantic comedy. Eva Mendes co-stars. 2. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a repulsive premise (heroine with brain damage), and a repulsive lead (Adam Sandler), but 50 First Dates (NBN, Saturday 7.30pm) manages to deliver a few smiles. 3. The British do good post-apocalypse societies, maybe because they have the practice, but Children of Men (Ten, Sunday 10.10pm) suffers from the always wooden acting of Clive Owen, seen here reacting to a terrorist bomb, a stimulus strong enough to evoke some response.

‘I once read some graffiti on a wall outside a venue in sydney which read: “Nothing is inevitable, all that matters is that we focus on the task at hand” which I try to remind myself every now and then.’ For Mick Harris, being part of the very unique Existence is an integral part of his life. ‘I love playing music: it’s what I have always done and being able to do it with a bunch of good friends makes playing music even better for me. This band is a great way for me to express my music and I enjoy every minute of it.’ What is the song that you are proudest of, new or old? ‘I would have to say every song that is going on the new album. We have spent countless hours in a small rehearsal room creating these songs and arranging them to be the best that they can be and it wasn’t easy, but the final result is amazing.’ Lead vocalist Rich Latimer echoes a similar sentiment, for him being in The Vue is like being in ‘another family with its own language, inside jokes, support and total freedom of expression’. For Rich, the next five years are important and the Very Unique Experience has a clear vision. ‘The album should be out by the end of the year, we are really excited about it, it is definitely going to live up to our band name that’s for sure! I hope we will be riding on that album for the next two years, touring globally spreading the positive consciousness.’ As the band member who has lobbied the hardest to get airplay Rich has had an inside view of the music industry. He explains it in a very tidy metaphor. ‘From the industry side, being indie, at first it’s kinda like walking into a fancy dress party held by all the coolest of the cool, and not knowing anyone then slowly finding one maybe two people who take you seriously and starting to mingle from there? Video and Radio play has changed the trajectory for the band, and its impact is already coming home. ‘It’s weird – we did a tour on the weekend first town no radio 35 people came, second town radio high rotation 2000 people came. Yeah it helps. Sure, knowing 5.5 million people see your band name on the TV each weekend is cool.’ The Very Unique Existence play the Buddha Bar on Friday night and then join Kate Miller Heidke as her support at the Hotel Great Northern on Saturday.

practice. I still go to dance classes with Deva Nandan.’ Prisca’s background takes us to the Academy of Dramatics and Social Arts in Sydney followed by contemporary dance with a troop in the Northern Territory nassid and contact dance with with Jackie O Suzanne Frazer in Brisbane where Prisca also joined the DANCE ON Vulcano women’s circus for a We’ve had dance parties, while. doofs, house parties and After a bit of research it seems dance classes… but here’s to me that the teachers are something else; DANCE ON is tapping into the powers of offering ‘a space free of form movement and the energy so any dancing is welcome that gets released through as long as it is offered in the spirit of healing through dance, dancing. ‘Dance On’ et al growing and sharing in respect are about letting the dance emerge naturally rather than and in love of each other’s putting dance steps into a expressions’. Prisca, inspired choreography. It’s about letting by Deva Nandan’s 5 Rhythm it flow rather than consciously classes which were inspired dance; letting the movement by Movement Medicine (the Wave) introduced by Gabrielle evolve and learn tools for Roth, offers a weekly 2.5 hr free listening to what’s inside form movement session.

A: ‘I was inspired by Deva Nandan, my teacher, and what While Dance On’s Prisca provides the space she exclaims, ‘I she had given to the dancing community here in Byron, don’t want to ‘hold the space’ nor guide in any way. I’m there where she used to teach 5 to let go and deepen my dance Rhythms (she is now based in

Mullumbimby every Tuesday).’ Q: Who is Deva Nandan, what is her philosophy? A; ‘She is one of very few accredited teachers of 5 Rhythms, a contemporary movement practice developed by Gabrielle Roth. It’s such a no-mind experience; what could be her philosophy? To help move the bodies so we can shake off the masks and meet our true selves? When I say no mind, I don’t mean the void I mean the feeling of harmony within through rhythms, no words attached, just waves of feeling movements where the ego is dissolved to discover spirit moving us. I want to emphasize here that Dance On is not a 5 Rhythms class; it does not aim at replacing a dance class in any form or shape. Dance On is more a space provided for whatever dancing.’ Q: Who should go along? A: ‘Dancers. Anyone who wants to dance, who’s got dancing feet… because that’s the only thing on offer there. No talking. BYO water, lots of it, and those dancing feet. No guidance

but open heart, clear mind, fullness; remember to breathe and to connect with self.’ Q: Please explain a little more about the 2.5 hr dance experience? A: ‘First half hour is about arriving. People often just stretch during that time. Then, technically, we shut the doors at 8pm. At 10pm we tend to sit down and have a chat. Between 8 and 10 is a chance to really dance. It is important to stay until the end to reach a feeling of completion; the music is chosen to offer a journey in dance, the end is almost more important than the beginning, it ensures a smooth transition with post dance reality.’ Q: What can people expect musically? A: ‘DJ Rooster. It’s his special touch and broad spectrum, so we get to explore different emotional states via the music. Check special nights in the gig guide, we will have DJ guests and possibly live music. Henrih has been chosen for his generosity of spirit and his soul awareness.’ Q: How does healing through dancing work/manifest? A: ‘I believe, thanks to this state of mindfulness that dancing can create, where mind is so satiated with feeling stimulations, it can allow the body to reconnect with source, where healing seems to be, or wellness should we say.’ Q: What would you like to see happen through Dance On? A: ‘Just that, dance on, let it happen. There is no one watching, it’s all about us and what we wish to give ourselves, exploring our expression at soul level including taking responsibility for our feelings; and the music is the support. The music can be guidance too. So can other people. The intent is the focus of whatever healing one wants to experience.’

Ghost Town Rule number one in this caper: never describe something as hilarious. If you do you can bet that somebody will approach you a week later and say, in a tone of grievous resentment, ‘you said it was funny.’ One man’s ceiling is another man’s floor (Austin Powers leaves me cold) – suffice to say that I laughed more in this than I have for some time and in one scene, involving a Great Dane in the living room, I nearly pissed myself. Bertram Pincus (Ricky Gervais), an ex-pat Londoner with a dental practice in Manhattan, has been dudded in love and turned into a misanthropic recluse. ‘It’s not the crowds per se that I hate,’ he clarifies, ‘it’s

the people in them.’ He dies for seven minutes during a minor medical procedure, resulting in him being able to see the ghosts of those departed who are still roaming the streets, unable to go to their rest until they have found a living agent who might bring closure to their unfinished business. Frank (Greg Kinnear), formerly a philandering husband, is one such ghost and Gwen (Téa Leoni), his archaeologist widow, is curator of an exhibition at the Met of recent discoveries from the tomb of an Egyptian king. The romantic comedy is the most breezy of genres, but this one is unusually sluggish in taking off – perhaps because director David Koepp, having written the screenplays of the recent Indiana Jones (2008) and War Of The Worlds (2005), is lost without lairy SFX – ironically, the ghosts are not very convincing, the antiquated imagery of one person walking through another being the only device employed to let

us know what they are. There is also too much dithering with set pieces meant to establish Frank’s personality, but when the story settles it hums along nicely, with the central characters striking an agreeable chord. It is, however, Gervais’s movie and, as a comic actor with perfect timing and a throwaway delivery, his humour depends on him retaining his Englishness – the showbiz American is wont to equate self-deprecation with being a ‘loser’, a condition from which there is no remit. His differentness as the lead in this type of flick is further accentuated by his striking lack of perfect Hollywood teeth and less than Adonis-like physique – which is why it all works so beautifully. Extolling the elevating principle that it is never too late to do good for somebody else without thought of personal gain, this is a little treasure, with unexpected twists and weepy rewards. It made my day. ~ John Campbell

OCEAN SHORES

Jude Southwell and I share a Canberra background and a remembrance of late summer plums. Ever since then Jude â&#x20AC;&#x201C; now working in a Byron Bay boutique â&#x20AC;&#x201C; has been making Plum Clafoutis, year in year out. Her recipe, she tells me, is a departure from the classic in that it incorporates ground almonds. I am so inspired that I stock up on plums and go home to make my own particular version. A clafoutis is a French fruit dessert deriving from the town of Limousin and it is traditionally made out of cherries, over which is poured a pancake-like batter then baked. Purists leave the cherries unpitted, believing that the pits impart a glorious flavour when cooked, a little like burnt almonds. So perhaps Judeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s interpretation is not too loose after all. Apparently, however, what she is making, and what I subsequently made, is not strictly speaking a clafoutis anyway but a â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;flognardeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; â&#x20AC;&#x201C; sometimes spelled â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;flaugnardeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;: precisely the same recipe but utilising apples or berries or prunes or plums instead of cherries. Flognarde or clafoutis, this is precisely the sort of lovely light and easy dessert which suits the time of year and which enables you to use up the surplus of stone fruits still around. And plums are suddenly to be seen everywhere, tumbling piles in all their assorted colours and types. I used Black Diamonds (plums have gorgeous names, names like Mirabelle and Angelina, Quetsch and Greengage, Ruby Royal and Amber Jewel) â&#x20AC;&#x201C; splitting them in half to expose their pale amber flesh, such a contrast to their jet-black exteriors. They may be red or green or maroon or gold, yellow or pink or purple. They belong to the rose family and have been cultivated since prehistoric times â&#x20AC;&#x201C; longer, perhaps, than any other fruit except the apple. Alexander the Great is said to have introduced them into Greece from Syria or Persia, where the damson plum (another name!) had long been grown. Hybrids between plums and apricots have been produced recently â&#x20AC;&#x201C; superior, it is claimed, to either of the parent fruit - with names like Plumcot (50% plum and 50% apricot), Aprium (75% apricot and 25% plum) and Pluot, the most popular, which is 75% plum and 25% apricot. Pluot, forsooth!

As children in Canberra we would often pick them, still unripe, off the trees and eat them, invariably resulting in stomach aches. In fact plums are, on the contrary, known for their laxative effects, especially in their dried form of prunes. (Prunes, incidentally, used to be dried in the sun like raisins but are now mostly dried in forced air tunnels for a more uniform product.) The exceedingly potent slivovitz is brandy made from fermented then distilled plum juice and is the national drink of Serbia. Hungarians make a jammy plum paste out of their plums, as well as the delectablesounding plum dumplings. In Japan they pickle plums into a sort of preserve known as umeboshi, which is used in rice balls. Jude tells me that she likes to use different types of plums for her clafoutis (clafoutes?), preferring the tart ones but occasionally going for a sweeter variety. My own clafoutis ended up itself being a hybrid of various recipes and my own imagination â&#x20AC;&#x201C; and none the worse for it! I warmed my Diamond Black halves in a heavy-based pan with butter and brown sugar, sloshing in some marsala toward the end and letting it bubble away to evaporation. The sticky halves I arranged in a buttered baking dish on top of which I poured the batter : three eggs beaten to thick paleness with half a cup of caster sugar then 50 grams of butter I had melted in the same pan I used for the plums (still redolent of marsala), one cup of sifted plain flour and one cup of milk. Forty minutes later in a moderately hot oven it emerged fragrantly golden, strewn with the handful of flaked almonds I couldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t resist adding as a final flourish. Monsieur Flognarde would have turned in his grave â&#x20AC;&#x201C; but it was almost celestial.

SINGLES A LA MODE The Byron Shire is famous for many things, and not least its surfeit of singles. One restaurant hoping to make a difference to this situation is The Petit Snail in Byron Bay. This very popular French restaurant is introducing Singlesâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; Nights on the first Thursday of every month, kicking off on March 5. For $45 you receive a 2-course dinner with vegetarian options plus a welcoming glass of wine or beer upon arrival, and sharing a table with other like souls. What with the allFrench staff, traditional French food and tres French atmosphere, the romantic possibilities are endless! For more information check out their website www. thepetitsnail.com.au or ring 6685 8526.

Byron’s fishing men at it again

The Byron Bay Services Angling Club held its monthly comptition last weekend. The competition started at 3pm on Saturday afternoon and finished at 10am with the weigh-in at the Sevices Club on Sunday morning. It was a great competition with some excellent fish bagged. The light south easterly wind and rain squalls during the night didn’t dampen the spirits of the club’s avid anglers and it seems that the old proverb about the wind from the east wasn’t quite true as club members had a reasonable catch by Sunday morning.

The winners in this month’s competition were: A Grade: Trevor Mead, B Grade: Brad Rankin. In the Veterans the winner was, not surprisingly, Hoss McGrath who is pretty unbeatable in the fishing stakes and the Super Veteran’s winner was Bob Davey. In the Ladies Division the first place went to Ann Bryant and the month’s biggest fish was a 3.54 Turrum caught by Brad Rankin. The next outing for the club will be Saturday and Sunday March 21 and 22. Members are reminded that there is a roster for the raffle at

Mullum High Futsal boys take on the world Four talented Mullumbimby High School students were chosen to play for Northern NSW Vikings in the Schools Australian Futsal Championships at Dandenong in Melbourne recently. Simon Knight was in the U13 division while Corey Montgomery, Dan Musgrave and Simon’s brother Tim Knight all competed in the U15 division. The championships ran over 3 days with teams from New Zealand and all over Australia competing. Each of the boys pushed themselves to their personal limit and performed brilliantly and state organisers commented that they did their school and state proud. While the boys were competing in Melbourne, the Australian Schools selectors chose Tim Knight to play in the Australian U16 school team to tour Brazil in April. A few weeks after returning from Melbourne Dan, Corey

and Tim won the Queensland Country Titles at Caloundra on the Sunshine Coast playing as members of the Far North Coast U16 Vipers. At the end of last year the U15 boys entered the Brisbane Cup Championships and played against the best club teams from all over Southern Queensland. They were undefeated in 7 games during the day in the leadup to the final. The inal was a real thriller and after 10 gruelling hours of Futsal, the Southern QLD Rep team traded goal for goal with our boys. With only 20 seconds left on the clock our local boys scored an unstoppable goal from the left flank and they claimed the Brisbane Cup. The latest news is that over the summer school holidays Tim was spotted by the Open Men’s NSW team National League coach, Brazilian ‘Wizz’ Philepe Amorim and was asked to train with the open men’s National League team.

Futsal champions, Dan Musgrave, Tim Knight, Corey Montgomery, coach Ray Musgrave and Simon Knight in Melbourne. Contact Rebecca 0438 851 140 for further info.

Crankin’ what’s happening surfside Last weekend saw Australia’s top Boardriding Clubs converge on the Gold Coast for the 25th anniversary year of Australia’s most prestigious, largest and longest running Boardriding Club national event, The Rip Curl Kirra Teams Challenge. With over 36 teams competing, the event was set to be a crowd pleaser and an all round winner for the sport in general. The North End Gold Coast Boardriders club were the team to beat, particularly with the prevailing swell conditions, but as has been the case every year, the depth and talent of competitors from the visiting clubs who come from all over Australia was a force of its own. The past three years have seen different clubs taking out the championship with Le-Ba (Lennox/Ballina) successful in

M Marcus Aboody surfing his way to a heat win for Le- Ba Boardriders. who finished in 2nd place in the Teams Challenge. The final day was the closest ever finish with North End Gold Coast Boardriders taking the win on 29 points with Le–Ba 2nd on 28 and Kirra 3rd, also on 28 points but relegated to 3rd on a count back.

The LJ Hooker team would like to thank everyone that attended our Auction. The response was overwhelming and showed there is a strong interest in real estate in our town. With 120 people attending we had standing room only, the properties attracted good interest with a dozen Â&#x2021;""" registered bidders on the night. Proof that potential buyers are keen to see whats on the market and are willing to make offers to own real estate in Byron Bay. At present we are continuing with negotiations on five properties and would expect to finalise deals this week. With such a great response from both our auction and current marketing program, we are already putting the final touches on our next Auction On The Bay to be held on April 8th, 2009. If you would like to know more or be apart of our Auction On The Bay call Andrew Rosee today on 0421 914 054.

â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Where are the clowns on stilts?â&#x20AC;&#x2122; A very good question asked at a recent council meeting by perennial petitioner Peter Wegner, who was lamenting the loss of street vibrancy in the Bay. He was pleased by Cr Simon Richardsonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s successful motion (81) to have the busking licence fee removed for those under 18 years of age. The move will go on public exhibition, so that older street musos can object to the discrimination. There are still no proposals before Council to hang mimes upside down in the dungeon before a sign reading â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Learn the wordsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;, which is a form of governance in Discworld. â&#x2013;  â&#x2013;  â&#x2013;  â&#x2013;
