Steady as she goes for the Bluesfest

Byron Shire Council is reminding businesses to ensure they have sufficient bins and rubbish collection due to the influx of people over Easter. Council’s acting manager of regulatory services David Murray said it is the responsibility of businesses to ensure waste is properly contained and not allow bins to become overflowing. ‘Poor waste management is not only unsightly but has the potential to attract vermin and may pose serious risks to public health and safety. We urge all businesses to consider their rubbish output and contact their waste collection contractor to arrange for additional pickups or bins if required over the busy period. ‘Leading up to and during the Easter weekend Council has also previously experienced problems with unauthorised signage, particularly in relation to the promotion of alcohol. Businesses who do not contain their waste and put up unauthorised signage can expect to be fined. ‘Council rangers will also be issuing on the spot fines for illegal camping,’ Mr Murray said.

The Echo over Easter

Greens warn Labor over Casino-Mur’bah rail link fallout promises from politicians,’ the group said in a press release. ‘The Greens also are sick of duck shoving between state and federal governments. ‘Queensland is doing the right thing by setting aside a rail corridor to link Robina to the Coolangatta airport. This brings within reach the dream of a rail line direct from Casino to Brisbane, by merely throwing a bridge across the Tweed River and filling in the gap.’ The Greens also want a commit-

ment from the state government that in any upgrade of the highway past Murwillumbah, a corridor for rail will be made part of the plans. In related news, Greens MP and transport spokesperson Lee Rhiannon has obtained a commitment from the government in NSW parliament that the final report of the Cross Border Transport Task Force will be publicly released by the end of the month. Minister John Della Bosca gave this promise during Question Time.

The Echo will be closed on Good Friday (so the ‘display advertising’ copy deadline is Thursday this week rather than Friday) but we will be open as usual on Easter Monday (so the ‘line classified’ deadline is the usual one – 1pm Monday). The next edition will come out on Tuesday April 14 as ‘normal’. Have a good weekend, drive safely, watch out for drink spiking, don’t play with matches and, above all, don’t stick peas up your nose.

Ms Rhiannon said the government must ensure the final report of the Task Force will see the delivery of desperately needed public transport services to Northern NSW. ‘The Greens call on the government to commit to developing an integrated transport plan for the region and the revitalisation of rail services. ‘The document analysing submissions to the task force, leaked to the Greens last week, clearly favoured bus continued on page 5

The Byron Ballina Greens has warned both State and Federal Labor and Opposition parties that they should not rely on Greens preferences if they don’t commit to restoring the rail link between Casino, through Byron Shire to Murwillumbah. The Northern Rivers Greens has already announced that it will not allocate its preferences to any political party that does not commit to the restoration of the rail link. ‘The Greens are tired of vague promises and broken

Lighthouse Rd repairs now down for 2010 Food, glorious food Almost four years after parts of the Lighhouse Road collapsed Byron Shire Council is saying that repairs won’t be complete until the end of 2010. Byron Shire Council’s engineering consultant GHD recently completed additional drilling on Lighthouse Road. Council resolved to undertake the additional investigation and design after the failed tendering process in 2008. Byron Shire Council’s director of asset management services, Phil Holloway, said he anticipated the GHD design review will be completed by May 2009.

‘The restoration works at Lighthouse Road are a high priority project however the planning, investigation, design and construction are complex due to the location of the work,’ he said in a press release. ‘The work calls for significant geotechnical investigation, design, environmental planning and funding. ‘The complex nature of the project requires specialist contractors for the design and construction as the work is outside the normal scope of Council activities. Similarly there is a great deal of consultation with National Parks, the Roads and

NEEDING HELP WITH A MEDICAL MATTER?

Traffic Authority (RTA) and engineering consultants to repair the road.’ Despite funding for the project being approved by the RTA, only one tender was received in January 2008. The RTA declined to provide the additional funding for the works. Council resolved not to accept the submitted tender and to undertake further geotechnical investigation and design. ‘At each stage of the project, renewed approvals are required from the RTA and Cape Byron Trust,’ Mr Holloway said. ‘We are anticipating that following the GHD design review, tenders will be called for repair of the road and boardwalk.

The revised design to Council will also include the consideration of Lighthouse Road as a single lane road. ‘If a tender is accepted by Council and funding approved by the RTA, it is estimated that a contractor will be employed by September 2009 and the work completed end 2010. In the meantime, we apologise for the ongoing inconvenience and assure the community that we are working quickly and responsibly to deliver the project.’ Works already undertaken at the site include the construction of a retaining wall at Clarkes Beach Cottage and a new stormwater outlet.

Two year old Jade Hutchings waters a freshly planted Barbados Cherry tree at the Food Production on Public Land launch outside Council’s Mullumbimby chambers on Saturday. The rain cleared long enough to allow an enthusiastic crowd, including many children, to plant a few dozen food plants and mulch and water the area. Special guest speaker Jerry ColebyWilliams, from ABC TV’s Gardening Australia, officially launched the project with Mayor Jan Barham before speaking about his own long life history as a gardener. To anyone walking, cycling or driving past Council chambers the change for the better will be obvious. Coleby-Williams said, ‘What is happening here today will only get more and more important as the years go by. You are the first to legitimise guerilla gardening. This is about reinforcing the beauty and utility in our public streets, empowering new generations of gardeners and increasing democracy in food production.’ Photo Lou Beaumont. upstairs 4 Bay Lane Byron Bay BEHINDTHEBEACHYs /0%.

Finnish history lives on in Mullum Story & photo Lou Beaumont

Professor Olavi Koivukangas, Director of the Institute of Migration in Finland, visited the Brunswick Valley Historical Museum on Wednesday April 1 to meet with descendants of the many Finnish settlers in Byron Shire. Prof Koivukangas has written two books about Finnish migration to Australia which feature the Finns of the district. Settlement of the Finns in the Shire commenced with the Back brothers in the early 1900s and by the 1940s there was a large commune (the largest enclave of Finns in NSW at that time) at the upper end of Main Arm, colloquially known as ‘Finn Village’. Patron of the BVHS, Frank Mills said, ‘The Finnish nationals have contributed greatly to the development of the Brunswick Valley and the town of Mullumbimby. ‘Billy Back built some beautiful homes in Mullumbimby, and many of the Finn settlers were banana growers at Main Arm and a number of homes

where they lived became the Finns’ Village.’ Professor Koivukangas said, ‘The first permanent settlers from Finland were seamen who settled on NSW and Victorian goldfields after 1851, but

the first Finn to visit Australia was H D Spöring who came to Australia with Captain James Cook on the Endeavour in 1770. ‘Sugarcane in North Queensland, especially in the 1920s,

was another drawcard for Finnish settlers, but the Finnish presence was most conspicuous in coastal seafaring, mining – especially Mt Lyell and Mt Isa – and in clearing land for farming.’

Geoffrey Robertson a ‘catch’ for writersfest Victoria Cosford

The dampness of the evening did not succeed in snuffing out the air of jollity at the Byron Bay Writers Festival Sponsors’ Launch. Held in the Verandah Room of the Byron Community and Cultural Centre, the event was first and foremost an opportunity to thank the sponsors – but also an unveiling of the list of visiting authors. Chairperson of the Northern Rivers Writers Centre Chris Hanley commenced proceedings, commenting wryly that ‘I don’t know what it is about festivals and rain’

www.echo.net.au

before going on to discuss the importance of long-term commitment to events such as the Writers Festival, specifically by sponsors. ‘Any sponsor in these times is a good sponsor’, he remarked, then launched into heartfelt appreciation toward major sponsor Southern Cross University, with the Festival since its inception and to be sure perceived more as a partner. The Macquarie Bank, another sponsor, was applauded for its ongoing support in spite of being buffeted by recent global events. Jeni Caffin, director of the

Festival, then took the floor. Referring to the list of writers, she mentioned that out of the neat hundred, 14 were local – not a bad percentage! – and that ‘politics, sex, humour and a lot of damned good writing’ lay in store for attendees. The major coup, however, was the acquisition of Geoffrey Robertson, for whom a ‘two year stalking campaign’ and ‘a great deal of spadework’ were required. He will in fact be the opening night speaker and, especially given his human rights work, she considers him ‘such a good fit’ for not only the event

but also the community. Other writers on the list include Nick Earls, Robert Dessaix, Delia Falconer, Bettina Arndt, Colin Friels, Wendy Harmer, Tom Kenneally, Mary Moody, Louis Nowra, Rachel Perkins and David and Kristin Williamson. ‘It’s going to be’, Vice Chairperson Lynda Dean was heard to remark, ‘the best writers festival we’ve had.’ The Byron Bay Writers Festival runs August 7-9 at Belongil Fields. Early Bird tickets are on sale at Jetset or at www.byronbaywritersfestival.com.

not rail services for the region. The government must do a uturn or risk further alienating voters. ‘One submission to the task force was from long-time public transport campaigner in the Northern Rivers, Associate Professor Robert Weatherby. Mr Weatherby conducted research in 2007 into possible patronage of a commuter rail service for the region, but his submission received very little attention in the task force’s analysis of submissions. ‘The Greens wonder if this is because Professor Weatherby’s findings were too difficult to refute.’

‘Fools Day joke’ It is coming up to that time of the year when many of the shire’s homeless begin to feel the cold and without our help, will spend a miserable winter with no barrier against the elements. The Mullumbimby Soup Kitchen does more than provide warm meals for many homeless folk and is asking for help in the form of donations of clean blankets, towels, pillows, bedding and clothes, especially children’s clothing, in their effort to help those not always able to help themselves.

Brunswick Heads Health Foods owner David Shaw was first to jump on the soup wagon last week when he gave Mullum Soup Kitchen founder Kris Campbell several blankets and towels to kick off the donations. The soup kitchen operates on Wednesdays from 5pm at the Neighbourhood Centre in Dalley Street. For more information phone the centre on 6684 1816. Photo Eve Jeffery

An opportunity in microfinance Victoria Cosford

Opportunity International is a global organisation which provides developing countries with microfinance and enterprise development services. Part of the network is Opportunity International Australia, whose efforts are focused on India, The Philippines and Indonesia – it is this which has become the concern of Gerry Rihs. A recent arrival to the far north coast, Swiss-born Gerry had been president of the Sydney Rotary Club before re-

locating, and in that capacity involved in projects designed to raise funds for the organisation. Having joined the Byron Bay Rotary Club, he is keen to carry on the work. Based on a system of microfinance, Opportunity International works through local institutions in the developing world by providing funding, an operating platform and technical assistance which enable these institutions to offer products and services to significantly improve the lives of poor people. Small amounts of money are loaned to individu-

als selected from the community who are then encouraged to start and build their own businesses. Gerry would like to see Byron Bay as the town whose rotary club can set an example to others. He is organising an event to be held on Thursday June 11 at the Byron Services Club, at which he will introduce Brian Barclay from Opportunity International and present a short DVD to explain the system of microfinance and its application in The Philippines. Gerry can be contacted at gerry@rihs.com.au.

Lobby group TOOT president Karin Kolbe described the leaked report as ‘a complete disaster. No wonder the NSW government does not want to publicly release it. We can only hope that NOROC’s Integrated Regional Transport Plan will come up with more substantial recommendations. ‘It completely ignores tourism opportunities, yet this is one of the important economic drivers for this area, as well as creating a much needed public transport service. ‘There are are about 1.7 million vistors to Byron every year – and they arrive by road. A rail service would allow tourists to explore the hinterland area. Instead of talking about moving tourists – which are our version of freight – this report talks about bananas. It ignores the fact this area is rapidly growing – the only region with higher growth is over the border in SE Queensland. It puts all its faith in buses, yet most people struggle with buses for anything but short trips.’

Preschool scores a new shadesail Story & photo Eve Jeffery

The teachers and children at the Ocean Shores Preschool are patiently waiting for the sun to come out for more than one reason. They are excited to try out the new shade sail that was recently installed at the playground of the school. Mayor Jan Barham and Cancer Council’s Relay for Life representatives Jan Mangleson and Sunita Balasubramaniam were all at the preschool last week for the official opening of the shade sail and to announce the preschool’s accreditation as part of SunSmart Early Childhood Program, which is a free national program run by the Cancer Council. The program’s aim is to see that childcare services are supported to develop and implement a sun protection policy that reduces children’s exposure to UV radiation and ultimately, skin cancer. The Cancer Council says that by enrolling children in a childcare service that is a member of the SunSmart program, parents can ensure their little ones are receiving optimal sun protection all day, every day. The purchase of the sail was made possible by donations of $1000 from Byron Shire Coun-

cil and $1500 from the Cancer Council as part of their Far North Coast Regional Cancer Control Grants Program. The rest of the money was contributed by the preschool’s fundraising. Thanks to a heavily discounted sail from David at Smart Shades, the shade is now installed and ready for fun. The sail is one of many im-

provements underway at the Ocean Shores Preschool, including a recently installed softfall. The school will be looking at fundraising for modular outside play equipment, the purchase of a large enclosed trampoline to replace one that was vandalised last year and an upgrade of the sandpit and sunshade area.

The Relay for Life is one of the major fundraisers for the Cancer Council who use donations to support the purchase of items such as the shade sail for community groups. The Byron Shire Relay for Life will be held at Red Devil Showgrounds in May. For more information contact Sunita at The Cancer Council on 6627 0300.

Splendid opportunity for young artists In collaboration with the Australia Council for the Arts and Lismore Regional Gallery, Splendour in the Grass is proud to announce the launch of Splendid – a mammoth arts initiative to workshop and showcase young and emerging Australian artists. Ten young and emerging artists who work across the visual arts, theatre, dance, design, installation, architecture, digital art, text, sound and other creative areas will be chosen to undertake a three-week Arts Lab residency in Lismore in July 2009. During the residency, the ten Splendid participants will not only be mentored in their own art form by some of the most recognised artists in the world, they will be encouraged to explore the concept of ‘cross artform’, working collaboratively within a dynamic environment that encourages critical thinking and experimentation. The concepts workshopped during the residency will be further developed over a six month period and several will be commissioned to premiere at Splendour in the Grass 2010. This process will occur three times, with artworks commissioned for Splendour in the Grass 2010, 2011 and 2012. Splendid is one of six projects supported through the Australian government’s $6.6 million

‘opportunities for young and emerging artists’ initiative, receiving $600,000 over the next three years through the Australia Council. Splendour in the Grass has committed a further $150,000 to Splendid.

‘Splendid is the greatest opportunity for young and emerging artists to learn crossartform skills and develop new generation artworks,’ said Steven Alderton, director of Lismore Regional Gallery. ‘Splen-

dour in the Grass represents the future of arts audiences and we are very fortunate to have Splendour contributing financially and providing the showcase for these works. It’s just enormously exciting.’ Jessica Ducrou, organiser of Splendour in the Grass, said, ‘Developing the visual art and performance aspect of our festival has always been important to me, since our first Splendour nine years ago. Realising this dream, with the three year commitment from the Australia Council, is wonderful. We are truly excited to see what comes of this at Splendour 2010.’ Andrew Donovan, the Australia Council’s acting executive director of arts development, said, ‘Splendour in the Grass is a music festival that brings together creative people from all art forms. Splendid is a terrific opportunity for up and coming artists to explore collaboration across artistic disciplines and expose their work to new audiences. ‘We anticipate a great line up of emerging artists will take part in 2009.’ Artists under 30 years of age or in the first five years of their practice wishing to apply for Splendid can do so by visiting splendid.org.au or calling 6622 2209.

theme. ‘There are many stresses on our fragile planet’s ecosystems,’ said Leonie Jackson from c.a.s.e. ‘It is our hope that artists will engage with problems such as habitat destruction, pollution, threatened fauna and climate change. Art can create objects and images that call attention to the fragility of our earth. Art can awaken emotional responses to help transform our attitudes

and behaviour.’ The setting for this exhibition is the spacious hall at Station Street Studios, which has recently undergone refurbishment. The building’s owner, Lisa Every, has kindly donated the venue for this exhibition.

The Northern Rivers Community Foundation made 13 grants to community groups during 2008 and appointed a Director from the Foundation to mentor each project funded. The Fatherhood Project was one of the grant recipients and mentor John Bennnett is pleased to announce that the recent grant of $2,000 has helped the Fatherhood Project run Dad’s and Kid’s Play Days. Research suggests that men who bond with their children

early are more likely to contribute to the child’s life, both financially and emotionally, even after separation. The Fatherhood Project runs Saturday ‘dads and kids play days’ for dads who have weekend only custody of the children and for busy dads working shifts. This offers the men the opportunity to network, gain new skills and normalise their feelings (often of isolation) in a father-friendly environment. Children without involved fathers are more vulnerable to

abuse and neglect and as teenagers are more likely to offend and to abuse drugs and alcohol. Children with abusive fathers are likely to continue this cycle with their own children. The Fatherhood Project is a not for profit, charitable organisation that aims for every Australian child to benefit from actively and lovingly engaged fathers in their lives. They do this by creating programs and events for fathers to better understand and value their role.

Be a pest about pesticides: EDO ‘Coping with agricultural chemicals can be one of the downsides of living on the Northern Rivers,’ says Mark Byrne, from the Environmental Defenders Office in Lismore.

The Starlight Foundation’s cyclists, sopping wet from their ride from the Gold Coast to Byron Bay on Friday, still had enough twinkle left in their stars for one last photo. Story & photo Eve Jeffery

The Tour de Kids: a ‘Ride for Life’, is a physically challenging weeklong cycling event that raises funds for the Starlight Children’s Foundation and several smaller charities. The annual ride, which started out as a group of mates combining their passion for cycling with the desire to help Australian kids, has resulted in $3.2 million being raised for a variety of children’s health and wellbeing programs. ‘This is the ninth year of Tour

de Kids and it is the enormous commitment of these riders year after year that makes this event so successful,’ said Starlight Children’s Foundation CEO Jill Weekes. ‘Over the years Tour de Kids riders have brought much needed joy and laughter to seriously ill children and their families at a time when they need it the most. Their phenomenal support is greatly valued and appreciated by Starlight.’ Each rider is inspired to ride by the challenges facing a

Starlight ‘wish child’. The funds raised ensure seriously ill children receive their once-in-alife-time wish experience. Nearly 40 big-hearted businessmen, including Olympic gold medal cyclist Stephen Wooldridge and Virgin Blue’s CEO Brett Godfrey, set out from Bundaberg on Sunday March 29 to ride 1,000km, crossing some of the steepest terrain in Queensland on a cycling odyssey to Byron Bay, which ended at Apex Park last Friday. The cyclists had intended

to visit more towns on their trip south, but found weather conditions had forced the closure of many roads and the torrential rain made for hard riding into the isolated areas. The scheduled lunch break in Mullumbimby was cancelled as the riders could not get in. The last leg from the Goldy took all the reserves the riders possessed and they arrived in Byron soaking wet, but happy to have completed the gruelling event and to see waiting friends and family and the promise of a hot shower.

Councils’ rate rise for 09/10 pegged at 3.5% The NSW government has announced that the annual rate peg for the 2009/10 financial year will be 3.5 per cent. This rate-peg sets the maximum income that NSW local

councils can collect from rate revenue, unless they apply for a special variation. Byron Shire Council will not be applying for a variation this year.

Minister for Local Government Barbara Perry said the rise ‘allows councils an appropriate increase in income to meet the rising cost of providing essential services

to their communities.’ Over the last five financial years, the government’s pegged rate rise has varied from 3.4 per cent (07/08) to 3.6 per cent (06/07).

What a big week for our Kevin Volume 23 #43

April 7, 2009

A sick system The state government’s response to the Garling Report into NSW’s troubled health system, though cautiously welcomed by doctors, leaves many unanswered questions in relation to the North Coast Area Health Service. The response, involving $485 million worth of measures to be implemented in three stages over four years, is meant to focus on ‘patients, not paperwork’, according to Premier Nathan Rees and Health Minister John Della Bosca. Words. Of Professor Garling’s 139 recommendations, 134 will be adopted but three of the most contentious issues – how to manage low-risk pregnancies, the amalgamation of pediatric services into one children’s hospital, and the process of treating patients in emergency departments – are yet to be addressed. They are the three issues affecting many of the state’s smaller hospitals and give rise to the suspicion, indeed acknowledged by the government, that the review is likely to result in the downgrading or closure of many of these hospitals which the government says cannot provide the ‘appropriate critical mass’ for specialist medical services. In their place would be a statewide transport system to ferry patients to and from large referral hospitals and various centres of excellence. We know already that the Byron Bay and Mullumbimby hospitals are on the hit list, to be replaced by a ‘district hospital’ on land at Ewingsdale. The creation of this hospital has dragged on for years and residents are entitled to know if its construction is still on the cards. It’s ironic that while our area’s health service chief executive Chris Crawford enacts the government’s plan to slash 400 equivalent full-time jobs at north coast hospitals, assuring us that no medical staff will be sacked, the government announces in its response that it will employ 500 new clerical (non-medical) staff in NSW hospitals to free up nurses ‘bogged down in paperwork’. You have to wonder whether the left hand (Premier Rees) has any idea of what the right hand (Mr Crawford) is doing. So where does that leave the most recent cutbacks for the north coast involving the 400 non-medical jobs? Taking with one hand and giving with another? It’s all a bit confusing, but even more disheartening is the fact this state government has secretly given millions of dollars to a private company to run a fuel-guzzling sporting event (the World Championship Rally) without any accountability to taxpayers. Government, when it wants to, can find millions to give to people who don’t really need it for an event totally at odds with the world economic and climate crisis. Now that’s really an unhealthy state of affairs, showing the state government’s priorities are way out of whack.

osh, what a busy time Kevin Rudd had last week. He had to apologise for being rude to an RAAF stewardess several months ago, when he had also apologised. He had to tighten security at the Lodge when it was revealed that a few weeks ago some bikies (well, at least they were big blokes with tattoos) had spent unauthorised time there. Indeed, he had to tighten security all over when it was reported that Chinese spies might be trying to intercept his emails. Then there was the furore when he wanted to change seats at a photo session to be next to an English mate rather than a Chinese delegate. And he was still having to answer questions about his defence minister’s Chinese connection and his treasurer’s stance on Chinese investment in Australia. Finally, to cap it all, he had to endure the indignity of being placed towards the end of the table at a formal dinner party. Oh, and of course he found time to play a positive and constructive part in the most important international conference of the century and take an active role in the construction and promotion of a new world order before returning to announce a new package to soften the effects of the world recession and take the crucial decisions in shaping next month’s watershed budget. These events are recorded in roughly the order of importance allocated to them by the Australian media, whose desire to puncture the image of St Kevin is currently being implemented with the

G

same zeal they showed in creating it. It is one thing for the Prime Minister to continue to command undreamt-of heights of political approval; the political commentariat may not be able to explain the phenomenon, but it still makes for a sexy headline. However, it is another thing entirely for the public adulation to be reflected in the media coverage. The

cessors, but is this really such a bad thing? The point is that Obama and Rudd were able to cooperate at the G20 on everything that mattered, including the commitment to a second summit in New York later in the year. It is here that the foundation successfully laid down in London can be built into a lasting structure to set both political and economic

The foundation laid down in London can be built into a lasting structure to set political and economic parameters for the foreseeable future‌ by Mungo MacCallum man must be brought back to earth with a dull thud and at every opportunity. The process began even before Rudd reached London for the G20. His Washington meeting with Barack Obama was derided as being no more than routine. Rudd, sniffed The Australian’s Greg Sheridan, was never going to be as close to Obama as John Howard had been to George Bush, and that was all that needed to be said on the subject. In sharp contrast the paper’s cartoonist Bill Leak portrayed Rudd as inserted in precisely the same presidential orifice as Howard had occupied for so long. Actually the two men appear to have developed an excellent working arrangement and a certain amount of personal rapport, according to the travelling press. It may not be as cosy as the quasi-homoerotic arrangement enjoyed by their prede-

parameters for the foreseeable future, and to do so in way that is more pragmatic and effective than anything achieved by the United Nations and more equitable and inclusive than the efforts of the now superseded G7. The London meeting did not implement everything the various factions had worked for: Obama and Britain’s Gordon Brown (backed up of course by Rudd) did not get the immediate stimulus surge for which they campaigned, nor did the Europeans get the mandatory regulatory authority which they had previously regarded as non-negotiable. But there were plenty of solid outcomes, the most important being the major reforms to the International Monetary Fund, which may now be able to do some real good in the world rather than simply reflecting the economic fads espoused by the richest nations. The outing of tax

havens is also a useful move, as are the strictures on executive pay deals. Both will have more symbolic than practical effects on the world’s economy, but in these troubled times symbols can be vital in restoring confidence. But the real triumph of the G20 was simply that it worked. There were no walkouts and no serious histrionics. The most powerful men and women on the planet were able to oversee and agree to a shift in the balance of international power on a scale not seen since the end of World War II. Obama marvelled at the fact that he, as president of the United States, could now sit down with his counterparts from Russia and China for serious and productive discussion on the financial crisis, but that is only the most obvious and dramatic aspect of the revolution that has taken place. As power shifted from Europe to America during the last century, it is now shifting again, but this time not to a new monopoly but to a far more democratic and hopeful framework. The Asian tigers, particularly China, have been given their rightful place and the emerging forces in South America and Africa invited to the table. For the first time in history, the most important decision-making forum on earth actually represents a majority of earth’s peoples. The world has changed for the better and Australia, through Kevin Rudd, has been an enthusiastic and effective part of the change. But of course, he did have to apologise to the RAAF stewardess. Oh well, nobody’s perfect.

Councilâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s approach to climate change In response to Mr Pughâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s opinion piece on March 17, Byron Shire Council would like to clarify a few points for the community. The issue of climate change and the resulting sea level rise is a hotly discussed topic in the public and scientific communities and is taken seriously at Byron Shire Council. While there are a multitude of sea level figures being discussed throughout the media, Councilâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s flood parameters pertaining to climate change are based on data supplied by the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) and CSIRO â&#x20AC;&#x201C; the peak bodies for the provision of data relating to climate change. Council has adopted to review the parameters presented by the IPCC and CSIRO as

they become available and update future planning scenarios as appropriate. Byron Shire Council staff and the Belongil Creek Floodplain Risk Management Advisory Committee recently completed a climate change flood analysis for Belongil Creek. The study detailed two planning scenarios and it was presented to Council in April 2008. The two planning scenarios, â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Belongil Large Development Flood Planning Levelâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; and â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Belongil Minimum Small Development Flood Planning Levelâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; were adopted by Council as an interim measure until the final flood study is reported to Council in May 2009. Byron Shire currently has a policy of planned retreat for development in the coastal areas which is guided by Part J

of Byron Shire Development Control Plan (DCP) 2002. Council is unable to translate Part J of Byron Shire DCP into the new shirewide Local Environmental Plan (LEP) as the NSW Standard Template LEP is restrictive in this regard. However Byron Shire is not planning to â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;decimate the 20 year old policy of planned retreatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; and will include any provisions that it is unable to include in the new LEP within the new shirewide DCP currently being prepared. It is anticipated both the new Byron Shire draft LEP and DCP will be publicly exhibited for comment later in 2009. In addition, Council recently resolved to write to the NSW Premier expressing their concern that the recently released Draft Sea

Level Rise Policy Statement does not include regulatory and statutory requirements for building developments to comply with stated sea level rise benchmarks. Council has also recommended to the NSW Department of Planning that the identified benchmarks should become a statutory requirement for incorporation in the NSW Template LEP. Council will continue to work with the NSW state government to include better provisions for coastal areas in the NSW Standard Template LEP that will better support Councilâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s planned retreat policy and the protection of coastal values.

Disappearing trees

have become a problem over recent years, then you ainâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t seen nothing yet! How about the extra 1,000 plus a day traffic movements that there will be along Left Bank Road, past the High School and through the centre of town that the full development will eventually generate? By releasing the land in stages the developers not only get to maximise the price on their land released, but may also avoid the scrutiny that the overall impact that such a large development may have, with planning authorities being forced to take the myopic view of looking at each separate development application on an individual and piecemeal basis. As a community we need to recognise the full impact that such a development will have on our town. Are our local and state planners ensuring that there will be a third more school places for the possible 500 or more extra children that the development will bring? Has the North Coast Area Health Service planned and budgeted for the extra doctors and nurses that will be needed at our local hospital? It is not only the Woolworths development that threatens to undermine our quality of life and the small town, community feel of Mullumbimby. If the developers get their way Woolworths for one will be happy. Then again they probably know a lot more about where this town is headed then most of us do!

tives on the unfolding global financial crisis. I issued an invitation to Echo readers to join a reading/discussion group in Byron â&#x20AC;&#x201C; three people responded. Instead some Echo letters naively admonish readers in simple, vague, abstract terms of the causes of this crisis, and how humanity can live â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;harmoniouslyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; by correcting/ changing the ills of capitalism with contradictory utopian notions. It seems the solutions are simple enough â&#x20AC;&#x201C; stop being â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;greedyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;, or redefine it, reinvent a new age paradigm of living based on â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;corporate entrepreneurial business linesâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; â&#x20AC;&#x201C; ironically the very same reasons why the capitalist system is in crisis. Obviously their values, ideas and aspirations are in another parallel universe to mainstream capitalist society. Nowhere is there any attempt to critique the realpolitik of capitalism. This crisis is the biggest since the 1929 Great Depression, the end of capitalismâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s longest economic â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;boomâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;, with working people and the poor now experiencing the unravelling economic and social consequences â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;bustâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; in the capitalist system cycle â&#x20AC;&#x201C; rising un (under) employment, increasing poverty, collapsing markets and bankruptcies, contracting consumer spending and a dramatic decline in global productivity. Is this â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;inevitableâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;, or do we take the time in trying to better understand why in the 21st century working people and the poor continue to bear the brunt of these crises, or is it just too hard, in our self interested complacency?

Green revolution

Council recently issued permission for 26 trees at one site and six more at another, 30 in all at Ocean Shores, to be removed. Every time I look at the determined certificates issued there are trees being removed at a rapid rate at Ocean Shores. Soon there wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t be a native tree to be seen, only exotics. If Byron Shire Council is an environmental council, then it doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t appear that is the case, unless this is all going under the radar of the elected councillors and Council staff have taken it into their hands and heads to issue these tree removals and for what purpose? Paul Brecht

Mullumbimby

Tallowood plans So the advertising is now out for the proposed Tallowood Ridge. Although only 31 blocks are currently being advertised, the local community needs to be aware that this is the just the begining of a gigantic new development. It will eventually comprise 250 dwellings and fill in a large area of beautiful greenfield space between Left Bank and Main Arm Roads. Many of us living nearby have already had to experience the sight of distressed black cockatoos flying around lost, a few weeks ago, when the land clearing began and their habitat was destroyed. The entire development will singlehandedly increase the size of Mullumbimby town by one third. I really wonder if due consideration has been given to the effect on the quality of life this will have for those of those who currently live here in Mullumbimby. If you think that traffic congestion and parking

Graeme Faulkner

General Manager Byron Shire Council

The Byron Council is to be commended for making more land available for community gardening, this time outside its office as a demonstration plot. It is a pointer in the right direction for enhanced community health and stability, especially in the context of environmental and ecomomic crises. Russia has gone from a red revolution to a green one after Putin made land available free. It now produces over 80% of its vegetables and 80% of its fruit from private family plots (ringingcedars.com), providing many with a living or partial income. Typically one hectare plots are carved out of unproductive former collective farms and quickly turned into very productive plots by copying nature. They combine native trees and shrubs with food producers, closely planted continued overleaf

Compliance, unlawful dwellings and the homeless I would like to thank The Echo for its thoughtful consultation before tipping its bucket on councillors over our growing homeless problem. (Editorial 31/3 – The Scouring of the Shire). The claim that councillors initiated a ‘very high-priority hunt for unlawful rural housing’ is both insulting and wrong. The ‘high-priority’ adopted was a routine endorsement of priorities that Council has maintained for many years. It is one of six standard high priorities and gives council staff the backing they may need to address dangerous (mainly fire) situations or instances where gross environmental damage is being caused. (Council would be potentially liable for loss of life or injury resulting from fire or accidents in unapproved buildings of which they were aware.) A briefing/meeting with compliance staff last year resulted in councillors being told of the dilemma its officers faced. They were aware of numerous cases of gross exploitation of the homeless by landlords who provided sub-standard accommodation at gouging prices but were reluctant to act because of the housing crisis. The outcome was that a report to council would be provided (not received but now due on April 9). The Mayor also raised the matter in a letter to the Premier and had a meeting with the then Planning Minister, Frank Sartor. In the meantime a low-key approach was supposed to be followed with only formal complaints initiating limited action. The recent instances of compliance staff getting so much publicity cannot be commented on openly by councillors this being in the province of the General Manager. However, I suspect that the mandatory following-up of complaints has given great scope for some to pursue their own agendas. Meanwhile we have former community activist Fast

Bucks, now vigorously pushing his own agenda (which has some merit), being given carte blanche by The Echo to disseminate dodgy information (councillors’ rights to files and relationship with staff) in what I suspect is a classical case of attack being the best form of defence. It would have been beneficial to all had The Echo thought to speak with councillors before pulling the trigger (even the Byron News makes some attempt), now we are in the position where, dripping with poo, we will be cast as recalcitrants endeavouring to justify our heartless actions. Homelessness is a terrible and growing problem in our society and has reached the proportions where more than token measures are being forced on state and federal agencies. Councils are relatively powerless in this regard but Byron Shire has done far more than most with our initiatives being used as models for others and we plan to do more. Pursuing and intimidating those already suffering from the crisis is not on our agenda. The Echo doesn’t get out of the office much of late but could I suggest that an investigation into exploitation of the homeless in the shire would be a more productive activity than dumping on the usual target. Cr Tom Tabart

Brunswick Heads ■ The Echo made no claim that councillors ‘initiated’ a hunt, but that they ‘endorsed’ the compliance team’s ‘very high priority’, as can be seen in Council’s own minutes. It may be a standard priority, as Cr Tabart says, but it seems the ‘low-key approach’ has not been followed lately. Cr Tabart is right: under changes to the Local Government Act councillors face onerous restrictions as to what they can say about staff performance and to what documents they can view. And subject as we are to defamation law, The Echo by no stretch of

Coundemolition or removal. Indeed cil acts only on the receipt of a complaint and Council is legally obliged to investigate each and every complaint. In other words it is the volume of complaints which should determine the priority. A formal priorities program therefore seems to mean that staff purport to know in advance what future complaints will be about; for example, there will be none about urban illegal dwellings and holiday letting, so let’s forget about those, but there will be plenty about rural dwellings so let’s give them priority. Clearly this is crap. I note that as a consequence of this vote the staff now would be able to wave the priorities list in the faces of rural fringe dwellers and use it to imply that the previous policy is now obsolete, and that the elected Council wants them

out with a very high priority. They would also be able to wave it around in a court of law as evidence of Council’s intent in the event of a prosecution. Indeed Mr Faulkner has unwitttingly conceded as much where he says: ‘According to our compliance priority program, advertising signs are a low priority. Presently Council staff only attended to complaints where signs appear to be recently installed ....’ I doubt if any of the elected councillors had the remotest awareness of these ramifications when they raised their hands in December. It seems to me they were unaware that they were effectively changing Council policy – without the inconvenience of inviting public consultation. This would be a particularly sweet victory for local profiteers. By leaving urban accommodation irregularities unimpeded, the rental income and therefore the value of urban properties would continue to increase while the persecution of rural fringe dwellers has not only the effect of reducing accommodation supply but, from what I’ve seen so far, of harassing greenish voters. I am a reluctant conspiracy theorist, and I certainly do not accuse the council staff of either the initiative or the sophistication to dream up such a scenario. However there are plenty of well-connected consultants and lawyers out there who plan cunningly for the long-term benefit of their wealthier clients. Fast Buck$

Coorabell Perhaps the Editorial had a preconceived agenda and didn’t want the facts to get in the way of a good story.

to provide a natural balance where pests are kept in check. There is no need for expensive pesticides, fertilisers or machinery which are oil price sensitive. This insulates families against turmoil in economic and financial markets. And there is Cuba, also with a communist history, where much was learnt when it was forced to cope when its oil supply decimated overnight. It’s an example for moving forward in food production and community spirit. We have much to learn from

on-site sewage management, facts not mentioned in the editorial nor other articles on this subject, but relevant to the cases published in The Echo (17.03.09 p.7). There is a lot more information about the two local landlords planning to ‘stage public events’ (17.03.09 p.7) that would provide readers a more informed and balanced view of their cases and be of considerable interest, that was not published. Last week’s editorial reporting voting patterns was incorrect. I reserved the 2009 compliance priorities item for debate for two reasons. 1. Because I wanted to speak about Council’s ‘Protocol for Dealing with Homeless People’ (which was Annexure 23 to this agenda item) and call for Council to act with more compassion in its dealing with the homeless, and 2. Because I wanted a stronger stand taken on another very high priority – dangerous and uncontrolled dogs. This motion, seconded by Cr Barham, was put to the vote and declared lost (perhaps due to inclusion of dangerous dogs). A further motion was put by Cr Staples seconded by Cr Cameron to endorse the 2009 compliance program and was carried unanimously (08864). Check Council’s audio transcript of the meeting to verify this account and the call for compassion for the homeless. Landlords exploiting the homeless are another matter. Another story not covered by The Echo (or Byron Shire News) was Council’s unanimous resolution at last week’s Strategic Planning Meeting (Item 5.4) to get cracking on the reports and actions required to set up a caravan park for affordable housing in Mullumbimby on 6.8ha of Council land within walking distance of shops, an idea the previous Council, and particularly former Cr John Lazarus, tried to get happening. I have taken this on as a special interest in this term of Council. Hopefully there will be more to come. Shalom. Cr Patrick Morrisey

The rights of cyclists ■ G Chambers (Letters, March

31) is quite appropriately concerned about the possibility of killing a bike rider and her baby. However one should consider the following. Bike riders have the same rights to roads as motorists and can legally ride two abreast. Mullumbimby Road from Uncle Tom’s to and including the Kings Creek Bridge has little or no shoulders so that bike riders must ride in the car lanes. All of Gulgan Road is as as bad if not worse. Both those roads have some of the worst properties in the Shire for bike riders – high speed, medium to high traffic volumes, quite a few large vehicles, poor sight lines, gravelly or no shoulders. Probably only Ewingsdale Road from Ozigo to the highway could be considered as more dangerous for bikes in the Shire. Bike/car accidents are occurring on many of our other roads, particularly as the popularity of biking is growing. Speed limits should be lowered on Mullumbimby and Gulgan Roads until they are

significantly upgraded. The Shire desperately needs both far more expenditure and better use of funds on bikeways and shoulders. Most of our Councillors made pre-election commitments to fund at least 7km of bikeways per year. Despite more good words from them the actual rate is staying at closer to 2km per year. Given a minimum of about 50km is needed for safe bike network we will be waiting a long time for it. A serious road shoulder building program is not even on the Council drawing board – this would have major benefits for both motorists and bike riders. In the meantime – to minimise the chance of bad accidents – it would be very advisable for motorists to slow down and really look out for bike riders at all times. Bike riders can do their part – ride defensively, wear bright, reflective clothes, wear a helmet, indicate turns.

■ Does G Chambers feel motorists have right of way over cyclists? It might be worth checking the rules. The shoulders of our roads are often littered with debris but most cyclists will use them, if only to stay away from the more impatient motorists. They are not compelled to. They are road users and are entitled to the lane. Where there is no shoulder, as is often the case on Mullumbimby Road, it’s the cyclists’ lane and they should position themselves to indicate clearly that motorists need an empty oncoming lane to overtake. Otherwise the cyclist is in danger of being pushed off the side of the road. Motorists may well be delayed but that would only be for seconds. We can only hope those few seconds are not more important than cyclists’ safety. Alternatively, motorists could use the brakes and lobby for bike paths; we’d like nothing better than to get out of Bernard Grinberg your way. on behalf of Byron Shire Robin Harrison Bicycle Users Group.

Vegetarianism A big ‘thank you’ to Tony Heath for that wonderful and informative article on vegetarianism (Echo, March 31). As a vegetarian myself for well over 20 years, I’m often frustrated by the lack of knowledge shown by meat-eaters on the basis of nutrition. Fit for Life (written by Harvey and Marilyn Diamond) is a great book for anyone who

to broaden their knowledge on the subject. This book explains which foods do what and it also gives us a four week vegetarian menu. There is an urgent need to educate those people who eat meat because of ignorance or because the wrong information was given to them by their parents, doctors, TV propaganda etc. If meat-eaters would limit this horrible practice, it would benefit not only the planet, but also their own health not to mention the lives of at least 52.7 billion land animals up for slaughter this year alone.

The Israeli-Palestinian conflict ripples wide The letter by Gareth Smith (‘Israel condemned’, March 24) is an outrage. Making spurious allegations about the IsraeliPalestinian conflict is mischievous. But making comparisons with Nazi practices is obscene. How unfortunate that he allows vitriol to get in the way of reasoned debate.

Vic Alhadeff

Chief Executive Officer NSW Jewish Board of Deputies Last week’s letter likening Israel to a Nazi state is a typical example of a hidden agenda disguised by a facile concern for the very real plight of the Palestinians.

to decry the Hamas ‘rocketeering’ you should at least look at the causes, ie I propose you explore the history of the trouble between the Jewish people and the Palestinians. Then ask yourselves what is the cause of ‘terrorism’? It is essential to the solution of any problem, particularly one as serious as the loss of thousands of lives, that the causes be understood. Back in 1948 the Zionists in Israel began removing the Palestinian people from their land – land that some of them had owned for several generations. Killings, and forced removals from their lands (to be replaced by Jewish settlers) has continued ever since. Forced into what are virtually ghettos they suffer from lack of adequate health care, employment opportunities and equality of education. For many a life of poverty, for others the only option an escape into refugee camps in other

countries. Some fought back, and Jews were killed. The Jewish retaliation – bombs – killing thousands of men, women, children, even babies. After three weeks of Israel’s recent war on Gaza 1,500 Palestinians were dead – over 400 were children. Thirteen Israelis died. I do not have the statistics on the number of wounded, homes or lives destroyed. Like Gareth Smith, I am not an antiSemite, but I am appalled at this barbarity and the total lack of humanity displayed. Klaus and George, there are a growing number of Jews around the world who are also appalled by this horror. The only chance for a real solution to this problem is to talk with the ‘enemy’. For peace and security there must be justice for all.

Yet who flings insults comparing Britain or Europe with the Nazi holocaust perpetrators? Nor do I read such a slur even being directed towards the many really criminal regimes that abuse human rights. Smith also ‘economises with the truth’ in neglecting to mention that Palestinian homes are not demolished at random but in a largely ineffective attempt to act as a warning. It is the homes of families of terrorists that are destroyed. Dan Russell

Neither Palestinians nor Israelis can know security and peace without it.’ I call upon Messrs Schwarz and Franco to heed Rabbi Gottlieb’s call to join ‘a large number of people of faith and conscience (who) will raise our voices demanding an end to the use of US money to destroy Palestinian homes, build illegal settlements and rain phosphorus on the heads of Gazan men, women and children.’ Gareth Smith

grand cru wine, I figured I was living like a lord’s bastard. My fellow workers were employees of the estate, townsfolk, a Spanish couple and their idiot sons and two related families of what are now referred to by the impeccably proper as Roma – to me they were Gypsies. To themselves they were Manouche. They travelled in blue vans, spoke Romany and ate separately from the rest of us. It was a mutually agreed upon segregation, with offence taken by nobody. The head man, moustachioed Monsieur Adam, wore a belt with a dagger in it and, though saying little, was not to be crossed. His wife, blackclad Nashta, matriarch of the clan and as hard as nails, had a gap-toothed grin that made everything all right. Because I had no fixed address, I was befriended by the grandsons – Majini, Bebe and

themselves with these permanent inky stains? Can they not see how ugly they are? I suppose it’s all part of the gender revolution that says women must ape men to assert their equality. Why else would actresses want to call themselves actors? Are they entirely unaware of the bleedin’ obvious – that by adopting the masculine appellation they are conceding its superior status? Be proud ladies – champion the feminine suffix. ‘The what?’ Fortunately, TURSA is not concerned with grammar. … The other day I was admiring the loveliness of a young woman as she glided across the footbridge at Bruns … ‘You’re such a total perv.’ Cat Carer’s mobile is taking a fearful hammering, but her criticism is like water off a duck’s back. … and as the sylph passed I was horrified by the sight of a ghastly discoloration that had been scored into the gorgeous curve of her hip. Did it hold some cultish significance? Was she pretending to be an ancient Briton? And all of this faddish tarnishing of the body in an area that is forever banging on about how we must preserve what is ‘natural’ and ‘unspoilt’. Is it drawing too long a bow to suggest that such defilements are tantamount to putting the despised Big Mac golden arches on Byron’s headland? It was one of the banes of Nashta’s life that she was unable to remove those tattooed numbers from her skin. The formidable old dame would turn in her grave if she knew of the current crassness.

Mind over matter? John Shea

Jenny lay back comfortably in the chair, closed her eyes and in the space of a few seconds, increased her heart rate from 70 to 130 beats a minute when I asked her to think about a very exciting (imaginary) meeting with a pop star. After a rest she reduced her heart rate to 55 beats a minute, this time by thinking about lying in the sun on the beach relaxing on a lovely sunny day. Later, with just a little practice, she was able to produce these changes without any imagery at all. Somehow she just switched her heart rate faster or slower. This kind of direct control over supposedly autonomous bodily systems is quite fascinating. It is generally assumed to be impossible. People in the West have long marvelled at reports of Indian yogis exerting such control over their bodies. But reports of yogis being buried for days without apparent ill effects, or of stopping the normal beating of their hearts, were treated with scepticism by scientists. We now know that

control along these lines, if not to such extremes, is genuinely possible, that quite untrained people also have such capacities, and that most of us can increase our skills in these areas. Psychologists first showed that people could learn to voluntarily and reliably control bodily systems such as blood pressure, skin temperature, and smooth muscle tension, by the use of a technique called biofeedback. This often involves the electronic amplification of normal bodily responses, like the sounds of the heart beating, and feeding it back to the person. Using such information paraplegics can learn to increase their blood pressure voluntarily before sitting up so that they do not faint, and asthmatics can learn to accelerate their heart rate so that their airways will open up. In recent years it has been recognised that many people do not need biofeedback to make extraordinary changes in their bodies. The use of imagery and suggestion(via hypnosis) often seem to produce dramatic changes by themselves.

For instance, some studies have shown that people with serious allergic responses to plants like stinging ivy do not show the response when they are first convinced that they are being touched with a harmless leaf. But when they are actually touched with a harmless leaf and believe that it is the stinging ivy, their skin breaks out in the usual rash. It is quite easy for people to learn to control the temperature of specific parts of the body. For instance, by imagining that there is an ice pack on one ear, and a hot water bottle on the other, some people can cause a difference in ear skin temperature of as much as eight degrees C. Women who reported relatively little genital sensitivity have learned to voluntarily increase blood flow to the genital area through the use of appropriate imagery, and therefore heighten their sexual response.

Away with warts Other studies indicate that hypnosis can lead to a 70% to 80% cure rate in the treatment of warts(although it should be noted that rubbing the wart on the bottom of a moss covered stone, turned over under a new moon, seems to work for some people too). Even more impressive, hypnosis has been used to cure the symptoms of a disfiguring congenital disease called fishskin disease (Erythrodermia Ichthyosiform of Broq) that looked like thousands of warts packed one on top of the other. In this latter case a young British doctor, A A Mason reported in The Lancet, way back in 1952, that he had been able to clear the thick horny fishlike skin, covering 90% of the body of a 16 year old youth, where all medical efforts, including skin grafts, had failed. Similarly fantastic are repeated studies, some published in very respectable journals, showing an average gain of one and a half to two inches in breast size as a result of suggestion and visualisation. Where good visualisation occurred, breast growth happened and persisted over time. Explanations about how this might have come about in the women involved included the proposal that the women somehow reactivated the hormonal changes of adolescence or that it was the result of actively imagining increased blood flow to the breasts. All of these ideas suggest that we may have a great capacity to directly alter our body’s functioning, and even appearance, through our thinking. Dr John Shea, psychologist and hypnotherapist, recently began his private practice in Lennox Head. He can be contacted at jdcshea@gmail.com.

Storming heaven again The Journeybook, edited by Rak Razam, published by Undergrowth Inc. Reviewed by David Lovejoy

You are either going to hate this book, or love it. It collects together many experiences that people have had on the frontiers of consciousness, many strands of the history of religious drug-use, much that is full of insight, only a little that is dull, and weaves all this material together with attractive artwork and elegant design: a coffee table book for the interior voyager. The editor, Mullumbimby resident Rak Razam, has anthologised essays of leading theorists like Daniel Pinchbeck and Terence McKenna, together with familiar passages from trailblazers like Aldous Huxley and Ken Kesey. The result is the most comprehensive, if not the most accessible, introduction to one of the most important aspects of the human adventure… Entheogenic drugs encourage, and sometimes initiate in the surprised novice, the earnest study of appearance and reality, of meaning and metaphysics. And the new traveller on this journey, whose senses are overwhelmed by the glory of the universe, shares the unmediated experience with the first shaman, high on one of the myriad natural sources of transcendence, with the desert mystic, concentrated on God until his self dissolves, and with

the lover, lost in the beauty of the beloved. (Sorry, there’s something about the psychedelic experience which is always over the top.) Like all religious endeavours, the temple of neurochemical contemplation has its saints and lineages. It is good to see R Gordon Wasson given credit for the popularisation of the psilocybin mushroom and a description of his ethnomycology – the study of the cultural use of mushrooms. Wasson shared his mycological knowledge with Robert Graves, Professor of Poetry at Oxford in the 1960s, and Graves’s brilliant description of his illumination inspired hundreds of

undergraduates, including this reviewer. The Journeybook also celebrates the life (and hundredth birthday) of Albert Hofmann, discoverer of LSD, synthesiser of mescaline and unapologetic evangelist for the psychological and spiritual benefits of the fire he snatched from heaven. Available from Happy High Herbs, Byron Bay, the book can also be ordered online at www.undergrowth.org and www.thejourneybook.com. One cavil: the structure of the text reading from both ends and meeting in the middle precludes an index, but a work as rich in historical and scientific fact as this should really have one.

The art of travel writing explored

Popular freelance journalist and travel writing guru Claire Scobie, pictured, returns to Byron Bay in early May for a weekend of workshops presented by the Northern Rivers Writers’ Centre. Into the Horizon: The Secrets of Travel Writing will take place on Saturday May 2. Whether you’re an aspiring travel writer or an irrepressible writing traveller, Claire Scobie will show you how to sift through your wanderings, recognise your stories and develop them into polished pieces of work. Claire will bust a few myths about travel writing which is not just money for jam, with exotic locations and luxury hotels, but which

actually involves, for the most part, hard yards and plenty of commitment. But she will also shed light on the positive fact that there is opportunity, if you do it right, to sell your story and to get paid. Into The Horizon is a general workshop, suitable for novices and people who already have the travel writing bug. The workshop will give participants a broad understanding of travel writing genres in magazines, newspapers and online with plenty of practical exercises. Topics include: how to impress an editor with good ideas, ways to evoke a sense of place and use photographs as ‘eye candy’ and how to turn a destination into a saleable story.

For more experienced writers, Claire will present Moving On: From Travel Writing To Travel Memoir on Sunday May 3. This workshop, already booked out, will show more seasoned travel writers how to take the next step and craft a longer piece of work. Claire has extensive knowledge of writing and selling non-fiction features and her first book, the travel memoir Lost in Lhasa, outsold every other book at the Byron Bay Writers Festival in 2006. Into The Horizon is on Saturday May 2, Byron Bay Community and Cultural Centre. Members $45, non-members, $55, bookings on 6685 5115 or email susie@nrwc.org.au. www.echo.net.au

Surfland Photography

T

he surf has been phenomenal in the last two months and a cruise of the local coastline has delivered some awe inspiring waves and as we all know, big surf equals big crowds. Fortunately we have plenty of

top breaks to thin out the mob though having said that, one Saturday last month there were 340 surfers counted between the Pass and Clarks Beach. From aphotographic point of view this convergence of wave riders provided

for posterity, great archival media for future generations of surfing sociologists and humble surf rats. Snapping this society from the rocks day after day, you can observe surfer behaviour at its best, worst and at times, just plain suicidal. Surfers ‘short cut’ their way out at the Pass’s back

beach. Most, wisely, force their way out to the far right. Many of the others misjudge the passage. One afternoon five surfers made the frightening and unplanned adrenalin trip through the rocks. The best advice is to consider releasing your leg rope. Don’t exhaust yourself. Relax – if possible – your body, to minimise the brief rocky impact. Then

go with the flow and savour the experience. Photographically if you want outstanding images consider ditching the black wet suit for a decadent ensemble of vivid butterfly hues and a matching shiny radiant ultra glossy new shooter.

ape Byron Marine Park is waiting for you to explore the riches it contains. Before setting out make sure you are aware of ways you can reduce your footprint. The marine park has been 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. Recreational fishing is allowed in the habitat protection and general use zones, which collectively represent 72.2 per cent of Cape Byron Marine Park’s area. The Zoning Plan allows recreational fishing in most areas of the marine park including along three quarters of all sandy beaches, around approximately half of all rocky shores and headlands, throughout all of the Brunswick River and a section of Marshalls Creek between Casons Lane and a point 300 metres south of the New Brighton Post Office, over some inshore reefs including, with restrictions, within the Wilsons Reef and Bait Reef, and

1. Director M Night (â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;One Big Shock Per Filmâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;) Shyamalan tells the story of a religious community lost in the past (arenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t they all?) in The Village (Prime, Saturday 9.30pm). 2. Science fiction seems to suit Tom Cruiseâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s acting abilities â&#x20AC;&#x201C; perhaps itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s because his spiritual master was originally a pulp fiction hack specialising in SF â&#x20AC;&#x201C; and Minority Report (NBN, Saturday 11.30pm) has the advantage of being based on a Philip K Dick story. 3. Claudia Karvan stars in the Australian production Saved (SBS, Sunday 8.30pm), which makes some good points about our appalling Immigration Department, which most people would prefer not to know about.

The other day I was driving listening to the radio and caught the end of a debate about a certain Split Enz song penned by Tim Finn. The song was Six Months in a Leaky Boat, and the discussion was trying to ascertain what it was about. The announcer was convinced it was about Tim Finnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s battle with depression, and a few callers were convinced it was about the Falklands war (as it was banned in the UK at the time of its release). No one really seemed to know. I couldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t help but feel for the only person in the debate who really knew: Tim Finn. Surely this must be one of the most frustrating things about being a songwriter: the constant speculation about what you are actually writing about. 4P XIFOUIF PQQPSUVOJUZ DBNFUP IBWFB DIBU XJUI 5JN  *

BTLFEIJNUPDMFBSVQUIFDPOGVTJPO He sighed in a good natured way: â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;I am shocked, the Falklands War is a ridiculous idea â&#x20AC;&#x201C; that comes about because the song was taken off air in England because the Sheffield was sunk. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s amazing what they take off air, to say itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s about that is a bit of a stretch. The other belief that it is a song about depression is also incorrect. I have never been depressed. I did have a period where I had a few anxiety attacks, and I wrote Dirty Creatures. I was having a rough time, my marriage had fallen over and I was buoyed up by having the boys (the band) around me.â&#x20AC;&#x2122; 5IJTJTBNJTVOEFSTUBOEJOHQFSQFUVBUFE CZBKPVSOBMJTUTPNFUJNFBHP â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;A journalist at SBS asked me to speak about the link between melancholy and creativity â&#x20AC;&#x201C; I know people who suffer from depression, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a chemical misfiring and is not part of my experience.

I have never felt the desire to experience colonic irrigation, although I do believe that such a thorough intestinal hosing would probably do me the world of good. The prospect of watery release posits a conundrum: like the movie hero who is clinging to a rocky escarpment, do I hold on or do I let go? I am a comedian and to date, (pardon the colonic pun) the process of holding on has always provided rich fodder. The sick are always much funnier than the enlightened: they still make human footprints and donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have the burning vacant retinal stare that puts the living spooks into me. You know the eyes I am talking about. Clean eyes. The great unwavering, crystal clear unblinkers. Poo free peepers: these are the eyes of a person with a clean colon. You canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t

Right to the Kora While the whole of the Northern Rivers is infected with Bluesfest Fever, Kora heads into town for a gig at the Hotel Great Northern on Sunday. In their latest creative endeavour, the soulful vocals of Kora have been mined from their lustrous debut album and married by shotgun and evil preacher to a blizzard of industrial electronics and factory funk of Cabaret Voltaire. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s reminicent of early Howie B, old school Kraftwerk or an underground Depeche Mode, the British press have been unanimous in declaring this album an unequivocal, surrealist masterpiece. In the meantime, experience the joy the brothers Kora can bring to a room.

tell what they are thinking. Usually because thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s nothing left. Just an empty pantry and pure intestinal bliss. The other day I was visiting a friend who informed me that an enema temple had set up next to her three bedroom residential home. Our children were playing on the verandah, and as we sat and sipped our tea I noticed that we could hear the conversation of the person experiencing their private anal release. It was a bit disturbing. Knowing someone has a pipe up their butt just two metres from where youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re sipping your Earl Grey tends to put you off your biscuits. As I drank my bevvie I couldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t help but wonder if the liquid funneling into the bucket for the colonic client wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t in fact the same colour, or, as a bit of dunked bikkie fell into the cupâ&#x20AC;Ś

the same consistency? Then a small groan. Oh my god. Heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s passed a big one. The colonic therapist or the faecal midwife made incoherent sounds of assurance, as some poor bastard met his unmaker. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve never been one for rules, but surely when it comes to setting up a business in a tightly packed residential area it would be more appropriate to choose accounting, or aura cleansing? Something unobtrusive. Colonics, like commercially obtained blow jobs, are really the stuff of industry estates or business districts. I asked my friend how she felt about the sudden intrusion of a bum washing business onto her verandah. Sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d been there for over a decade, had seen neighbours come and go, but none come and go as regularly as the bottom feeders next door. She was understandably unhappy but mainly because the owner of the business hadnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t shown the courtesy to (a) inform her and (b) put in a fence between her house and his business. He refused point blank, believing he shouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have to pay. How ironicâ&#x20AC;Ś the owner of a colonic therapy business, turns out in fact to beâ&#x20AC;Śa tight arse!

St Andrewâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Easter Passion St Andrewâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Choir is one of the longest established choirs in the northern river. Spiritsong is one of the most recently established choirs in the region, based at Bangalow. Both choirs sing a range of sacred and secular music that dates over a period of 400 years. The two choirs will be combining, along with invited soloists and narrators, and with Warren Whitney at the organ, to present an adaptation of the St Mark Passion, by Charles Wood, on Good Friday,at 5.30pm in St Andrewâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Anglican Church, Zadoc St, Lismore. This is a technically demanding work for both choir and organist, based on old plainchant melodies that turn from rapturous to harrowing, but always manage to penetrate the soul. This is a free performance, all welcome.

Learn to be a Lucid Dreamer

NURTURING CHILDRENâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;S INTUITION We know how to teach our kids to read and write, ride a bike, and clean their teeth, but how do you nurture intuition? Julie Hamilton is a psychic, columnist, author and public speaker who is appearing at the Starlight Festival in a two hour interactive session discussing dynamic techniques for nurturing your childâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s inner self. Although this is a technique for all parents, Julie admits that in her private practise, it is often when people are under pressure that they seek her assistance. â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;In general people seek out therapy because they are facing crisis or difficulty. There can be a range of reasons why people come to me, it can be bullying, or a child becoming withdrawn, acting out behaviour at home or with a sibling. In younger children or preschool children it may be around development issues or the parent may feel that their child isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t sleeping well... parents come because they are concerned, and feel they have run out of tools for what

is going on.â&#x20AC;&#x2122; Julie, a parent herself, is the first to admit how inadequately equipped we are as parents. â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;No one gave us a guide book to deal with a vast amount of issues that face you when you have kids. I wrote my book to normalise the experiences parents have with their kids. Everyone of us understands intuition because we have all had the experience of that working in our life, its a permanent â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;navmanâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; that we all have. If we can teach our children to tune in and recognise it then we can get them through.â&#x20AC;&#x2122;

This might work with toddlers, but what about teenagers, possibly the most challenging childhood group. â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Teenagers become another being, but if you have done a good job before they hit that gateway they will come out of the other end as beautiful motivated wonderful human beingsâ&#x20AC;Ś itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s like going into a parallel universe â&#x20AC;&#x201C; you can only equip them with the tools to get through that experience.â&#x20AC;&#x2122; So what are the things that Julie encourages with kids? â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Taking your child to spend significant times in nature, not allowing huge times on computer and TV and allowing expressive imaginative playâ&#x20AC;Ś itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s also important to allow them to be bored.â&#x20AC;&#x2122; Children can be very deep thinkers. I remember a time with my own son who became perplexed with the subject of dying. He wanted to know what would happen, and where you went. I told him I didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t really know and gave him some of my theories. He came up with his own. He has a passion for maths and

contemplated the nature of infinity, and somehow made peace with death and the universe in the understanding of the infinite nature of all things. His explanation left mine for dead. Julie agrees there are no solid answers. â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;What is important is that we open it up for exploration, you donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have to have the answers, children have their own answers. â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Although I am not a liberal parent. I think they need strong guidelines and strong boundaries, if they donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t learn that as a child then they are in trouble as an adult.â&#x20AC;&#x2122; So why is developing intuition so important? â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;If you are in touch with your intuition you are in touch with creativity and you will live a creative life, you will follow your life and follow your passion, intuitivity and creativity.â&#x20AC;&#x2122; Julie is conducting a workshop Sunday at the Bangalow A&I Hall 12- 2pm.

Phe is a healing practitioner and an artist of shamanic lucid dreaming. Phe uses the lucid dreaming practises of several cultures to inform her work: namely Maya-Toltec and Tibetan Dzogchen. In a two hour workshop Phe will explore some of the themes and principles of achieving lucid dreaming. I asked her just what lucid dreaming actually was. â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Lucid dreaming is when you are in a sleeping dream state and you are aware itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a dream. Lucid dreaming on the highest level is preparation for conscious death. The Tibetans considered this the most direct path to enlightenment.â&#x20AC;&#x2122; Phe draws the parallel between falling asleep to the process death brings with permanent disconnection. â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;When you fall asleep itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a similar process to shutting down from your five physical senses and then starting to perceive in the dreaming. The same process occurs in dying although thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a permanent shut down from the body. The practise here is to remain fully aware as you enter the dreaming of death or of sleep. There is a pre sleep prayer that the Tibetans use: may I awaken in the dream so that all beings may awaken. That sums up the intention of dreaming practise, remaining fully in consciousness.â&#x20AC;&#x2122; So how does a passive dreamer become a lucid dreamer?

â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;The way to start is with intention. You would need to really intend to become aware during the dream. One way to practise, is to realise that when you are awake itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a dream as well, to constantly make yourself aware that you are dreaming while awake, that it is all a dream.â&#x20AC;&#x2122; Lucid dreaming is not about dream interpretation. â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;One of the major things that happens is psychic development and doing dream healing â&#x20AC;&#x201C; so you can dream things from the future or the past, with different levels of clarity.â&#x20AC;&#x2122; Phe also calls on the aboriginal concept of dreaming to inform her work. â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;In aboriginal culture, everything is dreaming, to understand that is to understand that the dream realm precedes matter. â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Dreaming occurs in the realm of truth and the group mind. I will be introducing the ideas of lucid dreaming as a spiritual path, what itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s about as a pathway for enlightenment and a path for consciousness, including dream healing, psychic development and conscious death and being in pure awareness.â&#x20AC;&#x2122; Workshop is at the Bangalow A&I Hall at the Starlight Festival of Healing from 12 2pm on Saturday.

TRENTEMOLLER LA LA LAND THURSDAY 16

Photography exhibition on the walls of Rice@Brunswick

The opposite of la-la land Trentemoller’s music feels like diving into an underwater rabbit hole and into a fantasy land where deep space and sultry textures tease us into one’s own movie! I’d imagine his first album release The Last Resort is to be found in many lounge rooms of music lovers of all convictions, electronic or traditional. With productions and remixes for Andy Caldwell, Moby, Röyksopp, The Pet Shop Boys and The Knife, the Dane has made it onto the global dance floor earning him worldwide recognition including one of his biggest supporters, Pete Tong. The Trentemoller Chronicles, his latest album, encapsulates the best of his works and is branded by Trentemoller’s range of Indie electronica. Q: Please give us a brief look into your teenage years and just how you got into music and eventually into being Trentemoller? A: ‘I started playing music at an age of four or five years actually. When I was 11 years old I wrote the music for a school play and for the first time I discovered that I could write music; even if it was very simple. So that was in a way the kickstart for me really, being passionate about making and playing music. In my teenage years I played in a lot of different bands, all from jazz to rock. And I began listening a lot to indie bands like the Smiths , the Cure, Echo and the Bunnymen, and later bands like Stone Roses and Suicide. I joined several indie rock bands, trying to get my keyboard to sound like a noise guitar.’ Q: How varied does a Trentemoller set get? A: ‘Quite varied, I would say. Maybe more varied than the usual house/tech DJ. I mix in my tech/electro set surf, 50s girl pop and indie into the whole mix, a blend of my own bootlegs and edits. Nearly every track I play is my own edit of the track.’ Q: Does rock still surface here and there in your compositions or perhaps in live performances?

A: ‘Yeah, indie rock and inspiration from producers like Phil Spector. I love that organic, dramatic ‘wall of sound’ sound.’ Q: What have become habits in the studio? A: ‘A bad habit is to be on i-chat while making music, it sometimes steals too much time.’ Q: You play live with a band and a VJ? A: ‘Yeah, I played a big world tour last year. We also played several gigs in Australia and that was so great. It’s really something special compared to playing as a DJ. I love both, but with a band it can get really intense, because you are more people on stage interacting with each other and the crowd. Improvising is a great thing and it gives something unique to the set.’ Q: What is a good gig to you? A: ‘A happy, open minded crowd that is not afraid of surprises musically. And that people dance and have a party and not just try to play cool in the VIP.’ Q: Who should buy The Trentemoller Chronicles album? A: ‘It is not really an album, but a compilation of some of the 12’’s I did, and some of

my remixes, but if people like my music they should buy it, but I would recommend also listening to my studio album The Last Resort. That’s the album that best describes me, and I am so proud of that album still.’ Q: What can we expect from you at La La Land? A: ‘PAAAAAAAARTY!

VIBRATIONAL MEDICINE works on the idea that we are made up of fields of energy which hang out together

and compare notes. Illness is caused when one or more of these fields gets out of sync with the other. When this happens we start to feel unbalanced. The novel, and some think factual document, the Celestine Prophecy described a state of grace attained when we get the vibrations aligned correctly, but I reckon you’d have to be unbalanced to believe that or maybe I just don’t get the vibe.

When a client sees me, each session is different, depending on how your spirit wants to run the show, however I use astrology, tarot and energy reading as an oracle to shed light and insight on up and coming events and current issues.

Bluesfest program & guide presented by The Byron Shire Echo April 7, 2009

Bluesfest Magic The list of Bluesfest 2009 headliners includes:

Back in 1990 the East Coast Blues Festival made its first humble appearance. It started as a modest event in a funky venue run by Kevin and Karen Oxford at the Piggery, or what is now known as The Buddha Bar. I remember seeing Clarence Fountain and the Blind Boys of Alabama there. I was about 23 at the time and I was there with my mother. It was a breathtaking concert, uplifting, and enlivening. Here were 5 blind gospel singers in brown suits in a tiny coastal town in Northern NSW singing the most sublime music I’d ever heard. This is what Bluesfest is famed for. Over the past two decades, this event has brought the best blues and roots music around the world to Byron Bay. At the time of its conception, there was no real Aussie Festival circuit, events like Big Day Out and Womadelaide simply didn’t exist. Bluesfest is one of those seminal inspirational events that every year delivers the goods with the capacity to amaze, astound and entertain thousands of punters from all over the world. This year is no exception. With a bill that includes Eric Bibb, Ben Harper and Michael Franti, anyone who attends Bluesfest will have an entertainment experience. It’s not just about catching the 2 hour sets of international headline acts, it’s about catching performers you may never have heard of and making your own musical discoveries. That’s the magic of Bluesfest.

Ben Harper and Relentless7, John Butler Trio, Missy Higgins, Jason Mraz, Lucinda Williams, Michael Franti and Spearhead, Kasey Chambers and Shane Nicholson, Xavier Rudd, Zappa Plays Zappa, Angelique Kidjo, Paul Kelly, Blind Boys Of Alabama, Drive-By Truckers, Booker T and the DBTs, Augie March, Seasick Steve, Tinariwen, James Hunter, Ruthie Foster, Eric Bibb, Tim Finn, Toni Childs, Tony Joe White, Ayo, Blues Traveller and Fishbone.

Kasey Chambers & Shane Nicholson Kasey Chambers and Shane Nicholson’s album Rattlin Bones took out the 2008 ARIA Award for Best Country Album last year and more recently secured platinum status in Australia. Kasey and Shane won a record five Golden Guitars at Tamworth’s recent CMAA’s 2009 Country Music Awards, taking home Album of the Year (co-produced by Shane Nicholson & Nash Chambers), APRA Song of the Year, Video Clip of the Year (directed by Helen Clemens), Single of the Year and Top Selling Album of the Year. Rattlin Bones debuted at number one on the ARIA charts and immediately became a favourite with music critics. The Australian described it as: ‘simply the best album of her and Nicholson’s careers and a roots album of global significance...Sublime’. Sydney’s Daily Telegraph said ‘this musical coupling is bottled lightning. The first inescapable revelation of their debut collaborative effort is how entrancing their voices are together.’ This husband and wife team were surely made for each other in more ways than one. In September, Kasey and Shane blitzed their way across the USA and hit number one on the Americana radio airplay chart. Rattlin’ Bones was showered with rave reviews. It’s a musical partnership that once more emphasises Chambers’ title as Australia’s greatest alt country performer, and which introduces Nicholson as the perfect foil for her as a songwriter, singer and multi-instrumentalist. This is premiumgrade alt country, an album that can sit proudly on the shelf beside classics from the likes of Gram Parsons, Emmylou Harris and Gillian Welch.

So who comes to Bluesfest? Apparently, the whole world. The event has just sold their first ticket to someone who will be travelling from Antarctica. Now that’s some busride. Festival Director Peter Noble said, ‘We’re really looking forward to a great anniversary edition of Bluesfest this year, as are our many Australian festival goers. Interestingly – there will once again also be a disproportionate attendance of Northern Territorians – based on gross population – who seem to come in ever larger numbers yearly, with over 150 coming so far. South Australians have bought over 600 tickets to date, Tasmanians over 250, and West Australians over 200 so far.’

the group’s eclectic, global following, while their repertoire has expanded to embrace secular songs with a strongly spiritual message. Such wide acceptance is also evidenced by four Grammy Awards, an honour that didn’t exist when the Blind Boys started out. Even so, the Blind Boys’ lengthy saga remains a steadfast testament to constancy. Singer Jimmy Carter, who was there when the group was first formed, leads the band today with the firm conviction, joyous commitment, and gravitas that befit an elder statesman.’You see, some people think that Gospel singers should only sing Gospel songs. But we believe in songs with a positive message.’ At the core of The Blind Boys’ sound is four-part harmony that makes dramatic use of contrasting vocal leads. Immensely popular in religious circles – thanks to seminal groups such as The Golden Gate Quartet – this style was later adapted as a key component in secular rhythm and blues. Birmingham evolved as a centre for this four-part Gospel harmony sound, leading some experts to dub it ‘the Alabama style.’ It was at Alabama’s Talladega Institute for the Blind that the five blind boys first came together, initially calling their group The Happyland Singers. ‘The Happyland name lasted until 1948, when a promoter in New Jersey booked us on a show, along with another blind group called the Jackson Harmonies. He decided to hype it up and he billed it as a contest between ‘the Five Blind Boys of Alabama and the Five Blind Boys of Mississippi.’ Both us groups liked that idea and we changed our names behind it.’

composer, musician and arranger. Backed by his live band, Primitive Horn Orchestra, this follow-up to his critically acclaimed debut album King Hokum, draws on influences that include; blues from Southern USA, calypso music from Trinidad, hillbilly music of the 1930s, and 1920s jungle jazz. If it sounds compelling, that’s because it is.

Eric Bibb The Times have said that Eric Bibb, has ‘A voice to die for’. And it’s true, Eric’s talent for both performing and songwriting has been recognised with a Grammy Nomination for Shakin’ a Tailfeather and W.C.Handy nominations for the albums Spirit and the Blues

C W Stoneking He is ‘The incomparable, inexplicable blues savant, C.W. Stoneking’, says Mohair Slim from PBS F.M. C.W. Stoneking, is a musician fast gathering a substantial following, who draws influence from pre-war blues, jazz, 1920s calypso, folklore, and personal experience to produce his intelligent and original songs.

ent artist with his own label, Jarrah Records, scoring a staggering 800,000 CD sales. He is also a 3 time ARIA award winner, including two in 1997 for the ‘Grand National’ album which scooped Best Independent Release and Best Blues and Roots Release, as well as garnering high praise from the Washington Post, which described his music as ‘sauntering boogies with affinity for hip-hop beats’ and Rolling Stone praising ‘….Butler at his brand new best, blending his influences into a sound that is all his own’. And what influences they are: Bob Marley, Martin Luther King Jr., Jeff Lang, Red Hot Chili Peppers, Black Sabbath, Noam Chomsky, and Buckminster Fuller to name a few. The John Butler Trio, which also numbers Michael Barker on drums and backing vocals, and Shannon Birchall on double and electric bass, have fast become favourites at iconic festivals like Fuji Rock Festival, Glastonbury, Boonaru, Big Day Out and at Coachehella, where Bruce Fessier of USA Today proclaimed, ‘John Butler revealed himself to be arguably the finest guitarist at the Festival’.

Luka Bloom He’s the Irish boy who’s had a following of Aussie audiences for years now, and it’s no wonder. With a critically acclaimed back catalogue of over 30 years songwriting, Luka Bloom is an inspired and inspiring live performer. His concert arsenal includes both tender and dynamic original material and a surprisingly eclectic selection of other people’s material; songs loved by Luka. His trademark is his thunderous and exhilarating acoustic guitar playing matched with his fine voice and his warm and passionate delivery.

Mic Conway’s National Junk Band Expect the unexpected from one of the most popular folk acts in the country: Mic Conway’s National Junk Band. These ‘virtuosos of the bizarre’ create a live stage experience that must be seen and heard to be believed. Wielding National guitars, ukuleles, a sousaphone, a phonofiddle, actual garbage cans and metal sinks, these rhythmagicians make venues rock, pure and simple. The music and antics of the National Junk Band defies catagorisation. The fans have described them as: ‘the Sex Pistols meets Bing Crosby’, ‘bluesy with a touch of Monty Python’, ‘extreme entertainment’, ‘layer upon layer of insanity, lunacy, and anarchy’. For several years the National Junk Band has had toes tapping and jaws dropping at festivals, pubs, joints, radio, and TV. Personally I’d describe them as the

Ngaiire secret lovechildren of Captain Beefheart & his Magic Band after a night of passion in Esk with the three dark and deranged Kransky sisters.

Ngaiire ‘Do you still eat people?’ Tis the question of all questions and one that not many artists will be asked unless of course you just plain love the taste of a little human shank or unless your name is Ngaiire (ny-ree) and you have the blood of great Papua New Guinean warriors screaming out your veins. Historically famed for its’ cannibalism, this perhaps is the little the commercial world knows about Ngaiire’s former home. Alas to say she is on a path that will possibly change that. At just 24 she is the only Papua New Guinean woman to have studied for a Bachelor degree in Jazz and the only Papua New Guinean woman so far to receive widespread attention in the international music scene quietly carving out her name in the Australian music arena. Trivial to some, however, mountains if you’ve spent your childhood fleeing volcano eruptions, playing in your uncle’s hash crops, and watching your mother wage wars with machete men while trying to hide you from the hands of rape and murder. These however, were the best years of Ngaiire’s life. Ngaiire is now a residing citizen of the land down under, having moved to Australia on her

mother’s scholarship to study for a PhD. Though she has done time touring with friends Paul Mac and Blue King Brown there are little waves of excitement upon the eve of her endeavours as a solo artist with Rolling Stone parading her in a 4 page spread as a rising star to look out for alongside Aussie indie kids Kisschasy, Lenka, Faker, Holly Throsby and TZU.

The Buttery Recovery Choir There is a certain resonance in having The Buttery Recovery Choir at Bluesfest. It seems more than appropriate that this drug and alcohol recovery program, one of the most successful I might add, in the country, should shed the masks on anonymity and step up to the mic. Let’s face it, musicans and those in creative industries are often those who most commonly develop drug and alcohol dependency. The Buttery is an important initiative and centre for those seeking recovery from drug, alcohol, or gambling addiction in the Northern Rivers area. And the newly formed Buttery Recovery Choir will astound with their musicality and passion – singing songs that celebrate transformation, recovery and living a full life. The affiliated Buttery Residents Choir, which featured on a recently

released fundraising double CD through SONY BMG, has received accolades whenever they perform, so you can expect that the Recovery choir will be outstanding also. Led by musical director Loani McRae, who is a trained classical singer, and joined by outstanding musicians including Rick Grossman from the Hoodoo Gurus and Owen O’Neil, a former member of Opera Australia – this performance will guarantee to lift your spirits.

Archie Roach & Ruby Hunter Ruby Hunter was eight years old when she was taken from her Aboriginal family in South Australia and fostered by a white family, while Archie Roach was three years old when he was taken from his. Years later they met at a Salvation Army centre and together they are two of Australia’s most respected songwriters. Ruby Hunter’s first album Thoughts Within, released in 1994, was the first solo album release by an Aboriginal woman in Australia. Her second album Feeling Good, released in 2000, saw Ruby named Female Performer of the Year at the Deadly Sounds National Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Music Awards. She has performed at the prestigious Brooklyn Academy of Music Festival. Ruby and Archie have collaborated

Bluesfest program & guide presented by The Byron Shire Echo April 7, 2009 with the Australian Art Orchestra to produce a celebration of Ruby’s life and her ability to find joy and happiness in music and her culture despite the anguish of being forcibly removed from her family. Ruby and Archie have performed with some big names in the music industry, including Joan Armatrading, Tracy Chapman, and Bob Dylan. Archie Roach has released five albums and is considered an elder statesman of Aboriginal music. He has won many awards including five Aria awards and an international Human Rights Achievement Award for his song Took the Children Away, about Archie’s personal experience as one of what is now called the ‘stolen generation’ of Aboriginal people. He describes his most recent album, Journey, as a reaffirmation of identity, country, beliefs and spirit. Archie Roach is a truly gifted and unique voice in the league of Ray Charles, John Lee Hooker or George Jones.

Pugsley Buzzard Pugsley Buzzard can play piano like Chico Marx, Thelonius Monk, and Fats Waller. He’s the direct descendent of the devil, and he’ll be working his special evil at the Cabaret Stage at Bluesfest this year. Pugsley writes his own material but also likes to interpret all sorts of classic material including old parlour songs, show tunes, work songs, blues, jazz, funk, cartoon music and film scores. He has composed for film and theatre and ensembles big and small. His latest CD is Chicago Typewriter. Pugsley’s exciting and entertaining shows are delivered with a vaudevillian nuance and humour.

Alpha Blondy Otherwise known as The Rasta of Cocody, Alpha Blondy was born Seydou Kone in Africa’s Ivory Coast in 1953, of a Muslim mother, a Christian father and influenced by a grandmother who loved everyone regardless. He loved Bob Marley and Reggae, a fact which

11

alarmed his parents so much they committed him to a psychiatric institution for two years, which depressed him thoroughly, but didn’t stop him producing his own brand of spiritual and political music with a reggae twist. Since the ‘Eighties, he has produced at least 17 albums and 194 titles in over 4 languages including French and English. His latest, ‘Jah Victory’ carries on his theme for peace and justice, with its ‘biting politics packaged in some of the tightest, most appealing reggae in the world…spouting conscious views and a thorough knowledge of the world’s workings.’ What would Mum and Dad make of that?

Tinariwen Their people are the nomadic desert Touareg tribe of the Arabian Southern Sahara. That alone is enough to conjure up images of fierce nomadic tribesmen, the mysterious, secretive blue men of the desert, all flowing white robes and dark flashing eyes. The truth of course is a much more universal story: three young Algerian exiles from the desert oasis of Tamanrasset become soldier musicians in Colonel Ghadaffi’s military camps of Libya. Later, following a brief and painful rebellion against the government of Mali, they leave and re-invent themselves as full time musicians. They meet LoJo, another group of musicians from France and they become Tinariwen, an extended musical family of friends playing to the world, staging the first Festival in the Desert, and releasing three albums. Their latest is Aman Iman: Water is Life. The Tinariwen story is one of humanity, of a people who through pain and exile have created music which they dedicate to ‘peace, tolerance and development in the Sahara and in the world of the oppressed’. They come now from their desert home in north eastern Mali to Byron Bay to sing their story.

Ruthie Foster

Angelique Kidjo

Jason Mraz

African rhythms, a bit of funk, a bit of rhythm’n’blues, a splash of jazz and a touch of Latino and French and suddenly we’re talking the music of Angelique Kidjo. Her music never fails to excite and embrace audiences, for this African-born singer-songwriter reminds us all through her unique sound that we can be drawn together, no matter how different or far flung we are. She even sings in four languages – Fon, the tongue of her father’s people of Ouidah, French, the language of her adopted home, Yoruba from her mother, and English. Her latest album ‘Djin Djin’ has recently won a Grammy Award for Best Contemporary World Music Album and an NAACP Image Award for Outstanding World Music Album.

For six months I couldn’t get in the car without having to listen to Jason Mraz. My kids seemed to plug right into his music, all chorusing ‘I’m Yours’. It was a blessed relief to finally hear some decent music on a pop station that usually makes me want to scream, it even reassured me that my kids might even one day develop some decent musical taste. Mraz’s journey to public attention echoes the way Jack Johnson and Ben Harper were first introduced to Australian audiences via Bluesfest. Jason Mraz first played Bluesfest in 2008, and is now a genuine super star in the making. The American singer-songwriter quickly earned a reputation as a clever and inspired wordsmith.

ARIES: A no-prisoners attitude will only evoke friction and opposition and is that what you really want this week? Thursday’s full moon supports lifting your game in personal and professional relationships: what could you do to improve them? Doing it will reward you with a dynamic new growth spurt.

CANCER: This week brings mood swings as other people’s commitment waxes and wanes, and with Thursday’s full moon of togetherness in your domestic sector partnerships may need creative tweaking. Discuss fears and feelings about safety and trust, weigh up the good stuff and take it from there…

TAURUS: This week recommends the feng shui approach of a ruthless purge to clear the way for new ideas and opportunities. Take advantage of Thursday’s feel good full moonshine to make peace and restore accord, to show and tell others how much you value them.

LEO: Your powers of non-verbal persuasion are particularly impressive this week, so you won’t need to say a lot to get your views across. With Thursday’s full moon juicing you to the max, try to think we rather than me and let others share a little of the limelight.

GEMINI: Listening’s very important right now because it broadens your perspective and information, as you well know, is power. Sharing what you’ve learnt with someone who needs what you know around Thursday’s flirty full moon could open up a whole new can of plans and possibilities.

VIRGO: A lot can be achieved this week beavering away behind the scenes – analyzing, calculating and exercising your fine powers of discrimination. But all work and no play makes a cranky Virgo, so let your hair down during end of the week’s beauty loving full moon.

During the 1970s and 1980s, Australia ranked alongside the Philippines, and later China, as the top chessplaying nation in Asia, winning Asian Zonal tournaments and twice narrowly missing the Asian Team Championship title. Since then Australia has been shunted into its own insignificant zone, Oceania, and the latest world ranking list shows just how seriously Australia has fallen back compared to our neighbours. While China and India are now ranked among the world’s top 10 nations, Australia has dropped to 60th on both open and women’s ranking lists. Australia has also dropped to tenth in Asia (not helped by the break-up of the Soviet Union) and fifth in South-East Asia. In fact Australian chess has not been declining, but its rate of improvement has failed to keep pace with the rapid strides being made by the rest of the world.

SCORPIO: You’ve realized by now that flexibility’s your best strategy for making economic fluctuations work for you, so don’t try to coerce others into your way of thinking this week. Relish people’s different opinions because they’re all of use to you – even the ones you don’t agree with. SAGITTARIUS: This week presses your independence button, making restrictions to your freedom from other people particularly frustrating. But you’re entering a period where interacting with others is crucial to your progress, so appreciate efforts made on your behalf and extend the same consideration to the people you meet.

CAPRICORN: Why get narky with others barging round taking charge when the more they take on the less you have to? Especially when you could be furthering professional interests by judicious schmoozing. This week a little give goes a long way towards your enjoyment… AQUARIUS: Number crunching, rising prices, economic stress... what to do? Your astro clue is talk it through and do what you do best: find an overview that inspires others with a sense of excitement that the present seismic financial shifts also embody a positive potential. PISCES: Wondering how to thrive rather than merely survive? This week charismatic people miraculously manifest to assist you. Help the process along by ditching the stressful connections and problemcreating situations in your life, while taking advantage of the present tremendous impetus to simplify, downsize and scale back. Brown, playing Black, has been forced into a losing endgame but he refuses to go quietly. 35...g4! 36.Ra7 36.hxg4 hxg4 37.Ra7 was safer. 36...Rd1+! 37.Bf1? 37.Kh2! Bd6+ 38.Bg3 leaves White well on top. 37...gxh3!! 38.Rxb7? Missing the brilliant point behind Brown’s apparently desperate sacrifice. However 38.gxh3 Bxf3 already puts White on the defensive. 38...Rxf1+!! 39.Kh2 Hopeless, but 39.Kxf1 h2! is even worse. 39...Rxf2 40.Kxh3 Bd6 41.Nc4 Bf4 42.Ra7 Rf1 0-1 a

My theory is this: miffed at the honour that has been bestowed upon Jerry Lewis by the French, those guardians of high culture and mutilators of frogs, Steve Martin has committed himself to churning out comedies that range from the dreadful to the dreadfuller in the hope that, one day, he too will be embraced by the Gallic sensibility and lauded for making an art form of the puerile. There can be no other reason for his persistence in reviving a series that was, owing to the genius of Peter Sellers, mildly amusing at best. Martinâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s second outing as the hapless Inspector Clouseau is, if you can believe it, even worse than his first. To find a kind word â&#x20AC;&#x201C; it opens engagingly, with beautiful cartoon credits accompanied by Henry Manciniâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s smoky, seductive theme (as signature tunes go, it ranks among the most instantly evocative,

along with the sixtiesâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; electric guitar of Monty Normanâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Bond intro and the stirring music composed by the late great Elmer Bernstein for The Magnificent Seven, in turn appropriated by advertising gurus to create the Marlboro Man), but it is a quick pratfall into slapstick stupidity after that. Bored out of my brain, I would have left early but for the monsoonal rain outside. As it happened, staying to the bitter end at least provided me with a solitary laugh when Clouseau inadvertently drew back a knife to throw at a villain only to have it get stuck in an electric socket on the wall. Admittedly, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a sight gag no better than something that Larry, Curly and Moe might have come up with, but the blue wriggly current that spasmed his body worked for me in my hour of need. Martinâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s support cast is stellar â&#x20AC;&#x201C; had they been shown a different script before signing

that his attempt at normalcy is doomed. Some scenes are of exquisite sadness â&#x20AC;&#x201C; half a dozen other old wrestlers waiting to meetâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;nâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;greet the punters at a PR day; Stephanie taking her Dadâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s arm in the abandoned ballroom â&#x20AC;&#x201C; and they might easily have allowed the movie to degenerate

into mawkishness, with Ram morphing into Rocky (the ending goes perilously close), but we are spared that embarrassment thanks to Rourkeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s shambling, diehard performance and the self-discovery that crowns it. Powerful, poignant and all heart. ~ John Campbell

Last Day

proposed re-match with The Ayatollah from twenty-five years earlier is barely plausible and the characters of the two women in his life â&#x20AC;&#x201C; daughter Stephanie, with whom he seeks rapprochement, and Cassidy the pole dancer â&#x20AC;&#x201C; are inonsistently drawn. Thankfully, a religious reference via the â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Ram of Godâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; pun is not made too much of, for the theme of sacrifice and suffering, both physical and spiritual, doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t need to be spelt out. There are countless shots of Ram taken from behind as the hand-held camera follows him around, focusing forever on his Samson-like locks â&#x20AC;&#x201C; we are five minutes into the movie before we see his face â&#x20AC;&#x201C; but itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a presentation that feels overtly doco in style. Though helping to establish the authenticity of events and getting you inside The Wrestler its subjectâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s world, through Mickey Rourke â&#x20AC;&#x201C; robbed blind extended use it tends to be at the Oscars â&#x20AC;&#x201C; is Randy â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;the counter productive, making Ramâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; Robinson, an ageing the constant camera an professional wrestler. He lives unseen but intrusive player. alone in a trailer park, but But none of these flaws unlike the aspirational Jimmy detract, for Ram is somebody B-Rabbit of 8 Mile, Ram has we care about. At his lowest come to the tragic realisation ebb, he takes a job behind that he has a great future a deli counter, with his long behind him. Battered and locks in a plastic net and his scarred, he is held together real name of Robin badged by stimulants, pain killers and and stuck on his chest (funny â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;roids, and heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s struggling to how when such a thing occurs maintain the crumbling dignity â&#x20AC;&#x201C; i.e., the close up of ROBIN â&#x20AC;&#x201C; that allows him to carry on. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s there is always a sprinkling of all he can do. Ram is fixating, people whoâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll read it aloud, as but the story, what there is of if the rest of us were illiterate. it, is little more than a series The talker behind me was one of clichĂŠd plot points. The such halfwit) â&#x20AC;&#x201C; but you know up? â&#x20AC;&#x201C; including Lily Tomlin (astonishingly, she doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t appear to have aged a day since TVâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Laugh In all those decades ago), Andy Garcia, Jeremy Irons (looking very sheepish about the whole thing), Alfred Molina (who, sadly, seems unable to find a part worthy of his talent), Jean Reno and the oddly iconic Johnny Hallyday. Also roped into the fiasco is Aishwarya Rai, the luscious Queen of Bollywood (now married to the son of Amitabh Bachchan, the superstar who inspired the Slumdog Millionaire kid to dive into that pool of poo). There is little else to say other than this movie confirms my suspicion that Martinâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s witty and insightful LA Story (1991) was simply an incredible fluke. ~ John Campbell

Ian Evans was browsing in his regular way on the internet when the advertisement caught his eye; he printed it out and propped it up in front of his wife. It took Annie probably less than a minute to decide she should apply for it. Her website is entitled The Dig Cook, and that is exactly what Annie Evans is. We meet in a cafe and I love her immediately: how could anyone not? Least of all a team of hardworking archaeologists thousands of miles away from home, engaged on a six-week project with only a small and distant village as a reminder of relatively modern civilisation. For over ten years Annie â&#x20AC;&#x201C; devoid of formal training but with a strong background in catering and cafe work and, perhaps most importantly, a passion for cooking â&#x20AC;&#x201C; has been travelling to far-flung places in the UK and Greece to join archaelogical survey projects and excavations as the camp cook. That initial advertisement was desperately seeking a cook to travel to Cyprus in three weeksâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; time; miraculously Annie pulled everything together, researching the area comprehensively so that she knew what ingredients might be available to her upon arrival, dragging out all her old recipe books and composing menus. She tells me that â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;it sounded like an adventureâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;; she and Ian had been enjoying a semi-retired lifestyle based in Myocum and suddenly here was an opportunity to travel and to meet people, to stretch and extend herself at a stage in life when so many other people are content with a narrowing-down.

she absolutely loved it, loved meeting the archaelogists and academics; assuming the mother figure; confronting the challenges of different cultures, ingredients, customs and language; the local oil and olives and haloumi and tray of â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;warm, perfect peachesâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; brought to her by villagers. She loves the fact that towards the end of each dig â&#x20AC;&#x201C; and six weeks is generally the length of a project â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Ian arrives in order that they may then pile into an old van and explore countries like Croatia and Turkey and France together. She is about to head off to Lake Mungo in far south west New South Wales â&#x20AC;&#x201C; site where the remains of the oldest human being in Australia was found - where a group from La Trobe university has signed her up. She tells me about the vast expanse of paper she has spread out on the floor at home on to which she is setting out every ingredient she will need (â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;I know this sort of thing can be done on a computerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;, she says cheerfully, â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;but Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m such a Luddite...â&#x20AC;&#x2122;) Luddite she may be, but Annie Evans is, to me, a most wonderful inspiration.

Annie, riffling through the stained home-made recipe book she takes to all her jobs, showing me old-fashioned photos of herself grinning cheerfully out of some rough-as-guts kitchen, is the best company. She describes arriving, that first time, with visions of a villa in Cyprus with a central courtyard, a sort of kasbah with tiled floors, only to discover an improbably small kitchen, scruffy buildings providing the most basic facilities: she is infectiously jolly about it all. Because, as it turned out,

CHOCOLATE MASSAGE With Easter impending, thoughts turn naturally to chocolate â&#x20AC;&#x201C; and what more indulgent a concept could there be than a chocolate massage? Mobile day spa Ripple, which provides their unique service through the Gold Coast, Mt. Tambourine, Brisbane and the Sunshine Coast, have introduced a massage using warmed chocolate oil from head to toe, guaranteed to melt away stress and relax the muscles. Managing director Alison Shaw discovered the technique in a small day spa in Barcelona, Spain, and was inspired to recreate it here. The two-hour chocolate package includes a full body aromatherapy massage with warmed chocolate, chocolate lotion and gift of chocolates, and costs $185. For more information contact Alison Shaw on 0438 567 906.

Mullum mudlarks give Casino a royal drubbing Story & Photo John Campbell

The Mullumbimby rugby league club is in its centenary year (imagine, it’s been here longer than the Bluesfest), and, in marking the occasion, the Giants opened their 2009 season with a bruising 26-0 win over the Casino Cougars at Les Donnelly Field on Sunday. It was a rotten afternoon to be out and about, conditions inevitably making it a game to be savoured by the true believers rather than the purists. But as a celebration of the great code’s history in the area, it seemed fabulously appropriate – with the clouds getting lower, the light dimming and the going underfoot muddier, we might easily have been in Huddersfield or Bradford (except for the palm trees). The scoreline suggests a hiding, but it was a hard fought contest. Casino were willing and, had they been awarded a couple of four pointers in the second half, they may have caused new Mullum coach Wayne Cullen some concern.

In the end, however, they were not able to give as good as they got. The Giants, after spending most of the first forty minutes camped in the visitors’ half, had steadfastly worked their way to a 10-0 lead at oranges, following tries to centre Simon Baines and his winger Dallas Wedd (Baines’s flick pass to the number five, with a hair’s breadth between them, the corner post and the touch-line was a killer), and would have considered themselves unlucky to not be ahead by more. They were better organised, sharper in their execution and, most telling, did not allow the Cougars any leeway when they had possession. The second stanza proceeded as you might have expected, but Casino would not roll over. The Giants’ lock, Dwayne Moseley (one of the Blue and Gold’s best), got a deserved try, as did captain Andrew Moroney, after grubbing a kick through on a last tackle whim and finding himself Johnny-on-the-spot when the ball squirted free

Shores United golf and bowls The Shores United Junior Soccer Club is again hosting their Anzac Weekend Golf and Bowls fundraising day on Sunday April 26 at the Ocean Shores Country Club. The golf event is a 4 person ambrose with a shotgun start and the bowls will be Medley Triples where teams, singles or pairs are welcome to enter.

from the scramble for it. Industrious half Chase Nelson picked up a runaway at the death, the cover’s weary legs barely raising a trot. In recent times, the Giants have established a reputation as the Fancy Dans of the comp, scoring breathtaking tries from all points of the compass, like Randwick of the Ellas’ era. ‘Just

get the ball out wide’ was the governing principle. The ’09 backs are no less smart, but a powerhouse pack, led by the pugnacious Moroney, might take the boys down a different path. Earlier, Mullum’s Under 18s won 50-10 and the Reserves had a similarly impressive 52-6 victory.

The Easter Surfing Classic will get underway this Friday. Entries are filling up so if you are interested in entering please contact Jenny King on 0414 858 132 to put your name down. The divisions are fleas U13 boys, fleas U13 girls, cadets U16 boys, cadets U16 girls, junior U19 boys, junior U19 girls, open men, open women, O30 senior men, O40 masters men, O50 Legends men and a pre 1970’s invitational event.

New Under 16s side for Byron Magpies Swimming lessons proven to save young lives

Junior Magpies utilise a pause in the rain to train at Shultz Oval Bangalow in preparation for another busy junior AFL season

The Byron Bay Magpies have begun training for the 2009 season as Shultz Oval comes alive with exuberant shouts and flurries of colourful activity. Players, coaches, and team supporters are all getting the buzz now that the training regime is established, new footy boots are being broken in and skills are busily being honed. Byron Magpies President John Thompson said he is impressed with this year’s turnout and the level of playing already being shown at the oval. ‘Between our veteran players and some of the new talent, we’re looking very good,’ said Byron Magpies President John Thompson who is impressed with this year’s turnout and the www.echo.net.au

level of playing already being shown at the oval. ‘I’m expecting an exciting year.’ Thompson said that the big news this year was the revitalisation of the under 16’s side. ‘It was touch and go as far as getting the numbers, but a combined Bryon/Brunswick side has been established, so we’ll be sharing training venues and plan to have a very competitive side this season,’ he said. ‘This is something we really needed, as we have some excellent players moving up through the ranks and they were concerned about outgrowing the under 14s.’ John wants to encourage any players wishing to participate in the under 16s to ring him.

The under 10s, 12s and 14s, train regularly on Wednesday afternoons from 4.30pm to 6.30pm at Shultz Oval behind the Bangalow Bowls Club. Auskick, for the 5s, 6s and under 8s, trains there on Friday nights between 5.30 and 7.00pm. Players wishing to join may still show up on training afternoons, or ring John and Vanessa on 6687 2787 or 0408 791 286. Home and away games will be played on Sundays and with a very strong coaching staff included former Crows stand out ruckman Sean Rehn, and dedicated, fun loving players, 2009 promises to be a very lively and enjoyable footy season.

A recent study has show the benefit of young children participating in swim classes. ‘Until now there has been a lack of evidence to support swimming lessons as a proven strategy for drowning prevention in the 0-4 year old age group,’ said Michael Morris of the Samuel Morris Foundation ‘A Study by Brenner et al has now provided some evidence to support learn to swim lessons as part of the prevention tool kit in this age group.’ Brenner et al found ‘a protective association between past participation in formal swimming lessons and risk of drowning in children aged 1 to 4 years’, but warn that the estimate was imprecise the protective effective could be between 3 and 99% and another study found protective effect between 10 and 80%. The authors acknowledge that one limitation of their study was the relatively small sample size. The study found that in combination with other prevention strategies, such as pool fencing, appropriate adult supervision, and training in cardiopulmonary resuscitation, swimming instruction can now be viewed as a potential component of a multifaceted approach to prevention for younger children. ‘The Samuel Morris Foundation, along with other organisations, are calling on the Governments around the country to immediately implement changes to the legislation associated with home pools to introduce mandatory CPR re-

attend the barbeque which will commence at around 4.30pm. It will be a great afternoon for the whole family with plenty of prizes and raffles on offer. For more information or to enter a team in either event, please contact the Ocean Shores Country club directly on 6680 1008. members are encouraged to enter this longrunning event now in its 34th year and run in memory of the late Ben King. All committee members: there will be a meeting on Tuesday night at 7pm to finalise everything prior to this weekend’s Easter Classic.

EMERGENCY ALERT

Beautiful melaleuca paperbark trees in Fletcher St near library are under threat, as developers rose above Councilâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s decision and went to the Land & Environment Court to gain approval to widen the road and remove the trees. They represent the wetlands that Byron once was, they absorb water and they are LIVING. Anyone who is motivated: we need to draw public attention to what is happening in this town against the will of the people. Contact Cheze on 0266857927 or 0411843384.

Backlash A little birdie told us that Woolies will start construction soon in Mullum but according to the company’s media person: ‘We are still waiting for the Byron Shire Council to approve the plan for the sewage treatment works, so we have no date set for the start of construction.’ Nevertheless we expect building to begin in May and associated roadworks about three months later, should Council give certification.

Thanks to Chris and Rick of the Byron Bay Rural Fire Brigade who gallantly helped our Echo photographer get to her next shoot. If she hadn’t got the flat tyre conveniently outside the firies’ lunch gathering there may not have been a front page pic. Our drudge was glad to see chivalry – and synchronicity – is alive and well in the Shire.
