Mullumbimby man wins case against ‘illegal’ police search Hans Lovejoy

Lois moves on In 1979, a factory on the Byron industrial estate cost $20,000 and there was plenty of uncrowded surf. That was when James Dods, pictured, along with his then-partner Yves Deyris, moved their shoe factory with 15 staff from the heart of Kings Cross to Byron. They figured if they were going to make shoes, why not do it in paradise? But as competing with cheaper footwear manufactured overseas became impossible, the factory

– along with every other shoe factory in Australia – was reluctantly closed around 2001. After 34 years in the shoe business James and business partner John Parsons are finally closing Lois Lane Shoes. James and John would like to thank all the amazing staff and friends who worked with them over the years, and of course the loyal shoe lovers who made the whole thing possible.

State delays planning reform Byron Shire, along with other north coast councils, remains in a planning limbo created by the state government, five months after a report by consultants Parsons Brinckerhoff was expected to be made public on rural E2 and E3 zonings. A NSW department of planning spokesperson told The Echo the delays were due to large number of submissions received (over 2200) and an extended period for analysing information and public consultation. Despite the uncertainty, Council last Thursday pushed ahead on

including changes to the LEP (local environment plan) and tackled multiple occupancies (MOs) and Community Titles (CTs). And a press release last week by Council enthused about its commitment to rural living, declaring Council’s ‘intent to bring multiple occupancy and community title options back to the table.’ A workshop is planned for the next month. Meanwhile Byron Shire-based Greens MLC Jan Barham is leading a forum on the proposed changes to the coalition government’s planning

policy. It will be held at the SCU room, Byron Bay Community Centre on Saturday August 17 from 4pm.

Planning forum Sat One of the speakers will be NSW Greens planning spokesperson David Shoebridge, who said in a press release that ‘These proposed changes strip the democracy from planning law in NSW. ‘If they become law residents and community groups will have no say at all in 80 per cent of development in their local area.’

A local man who was cuffed and sprayed in the face with capsicum spray by police has had charges against him thrown out by the District Court upon appeal. The decision last Thursday by Her Honour Judge Wells in the Lismore District Court convincingly overturned the findings of Local Court Magistrate Michael Dakin and held that the evidence of the two police officers involved, Senior Constables Amos and Hayworth, lacked credibility. After being pulled over for a licence check just outside Mullumbimby on October 25, 2011, police conducted a search of John Scrivener, then aged 50, and his car, supposedly on suspicion of drugs. Police then alleged that Mr Scrivener became abusive towards them. However, Mr Scrivener instead claims he was abused and told The Echo he immediately lodged a complaint against the two officers after the incident.  Even though Mr Scrivener had told the officers that he intended to lodge a complaint, he told The Echo that he gave evidence in court that the police nevertheless ‘proceeded to violently assault me, including throwing me on the ground, jumping on me with their knees, punching me, pulling my hair, attempting to choke me and then cuffing me before spraying me in the face with capsicum spray.’ After Mr Scrivener was found guilty by Magistrate Dakin last September for resisting arrest, assaulting police officers in the execution of their duty and behaving in an offensive manner, he lodged an appeal, which was then heard in the higher-

ranked District Court. Mr Scrivener won that appeal on August 8. During the Local Court hearing, Mr Scrivener’s solicitor, Cameron Bell, argued that the search was illegal and that the evidence of the two police officers was so inconsistent that it could not be accepted. However, Local Court Magistrate Dakin held that the search was legal and went on to find that the police witnesses were truthful notwithstanding the inconsistencies in their evidence. To add insult to injury, the Magistrate was critical of Mr Scrivener’s evidence and indicated that he was not a truthful witness. Magistrate Dakin, a former police officer, even told the court, ‘I prefer the police evidence.’ On appeal, the District Court held that the actions of the police officers in searching Mr Scrivener were not justified as there was not the ‘reasonable suspicion’ required to conduct a legal search. The District Court also held that Mr Scrivener’s evidence was ‘consistent and clear’. Most importantly, the District Court found that the evidence of the two police officers was not credible. Mr Scrivener told The Echo his lawyer Cameron Bell ‘found at least six discrepancies in the police officers’ evidence. Even the Crown prosecutor said they couldn’t offer any explanation for the discrepancies.’ One of the issues in the case was the allegation by the police officers of the existence of a small ‘resealable’ bag, which Senior Constable Amos said, ‘are normally used to put drugs in, namely cannabis’. Her Honour noted that in the Local Court hearing the police prosecutor objected to Mr Bell continued on page 3

Victims Of Holiday Letting group pushes for compliance action Hans Lovejoy

Members from a group that say they been affected by Byronâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s holiday letting industry are calling on Council to crack down on holiday letting in residential zones. It comes after a meeting between Victims Of Holiday Letting (VOHL), community representatives and Council last Tuesday. While thanking Council, including staff, for the opportunity to present their concerns, spokesperson Doug Luke told The Echo that he hopes to see a more proactive compliance approach by Council toward holiday letting in residential zones. â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;We are rapidly losing our demographic diversity and our vibrant alternative culture,â&#x20AC;&#x2122; said Mr Luke. â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;VOHL welcomes holiday letting in areas appropriately zoned for tourism and close to the beach. VOHLâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s position

is that holiday letting is illegal and has serious detrimental impacts on individual residents and the shire as a community and a society.â&#x20AC;&#x2122; Mr Luke claims self-regulation by the HLO (holiday letting organisation) and its code of conduct are â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;absolutely uselessâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;. â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;The only protection achieved is for the financial interests of the industry. Council and therefore its councillors have a duty of care for citizens and residents. VOHL is simply asking Council to uphold the law and as soon as possible put up a motion in Council to reinstate compliance action against the Suffolk Park property where the case is ready to go to court.â&#x20AC;&#x2122; He says the group â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;now has concerns about holiday letting multiplying in the north of our Shire, as evidenced by the impacts felt recently from the Splendour In The Grass festival attended by 25,000 people.â&#x20AC;&#x2122;

â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;While compliance action continues,â&#x20AC;&#x2122; he says, â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;VOHL believes that a development control plan (DCP) should be worked on and inserted into the local environment plan (LEP). Can the state government help us here? VOHL would like the ball to stop bouncing between Council and state.â&#x20AC;&#x2122;

Mayor responds And while Mayor Simon Richardson agrees that â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Council has an obligation to act on a compliance issue when it has been notified of a breachâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;, he told The Echo he does â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;not want Council to spend years in court, taking on one compliance matter after another.â&#x20AC;&#x2122; He says that under the current local environment plan (LEP), holiday letting in a residential zone is a prohibited use. â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;I am trying to find a compromise that can provide a

clear understanding in the community as to where holiday letting can occur and where it cannot. â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Within the area that holiday letting may be considered acceptable, we need to develop stringent management strategies to make sure the noise, rubbish, fire safety and parking issues are addressed properly. â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Within the DCP [development control plan] and new LEP we need to embed clear and fair regulation. â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;In this way, we can protect residents who have decided to live in an area with a thriving community instead of a constant stream of shortterm visitors, while ensuring the holiday letting industry can provide accommodation to our visitors so pressure for high rises can be dampened.â&#x20AC;&#x2122; The Echo contacted Holiday Letting Organisationâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s (HLO) John Gudgeon but he declined to comment.

Objecters to the chemical spraying of bitou bush now include the Shireâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s younger citizens, who staged a protest outside Byron Shire Council Chambers last Wednesday. The group go by the name of Earth Guardians, and member Holly Knott says the group strongly believe it is the right of children to have clean air, clean water, and playgrounds free of chemicals. â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;We support others working hard on these issues such as Byron Shire Chemical Free Landcare.â&#x20AC;&#x2122; The Earth Guardians have urged people to raise awareness of the issue and have

best-practice guidelines. â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Monitoring results recently published in the Review of the NSW Bitou Bush Threat Abatement Plan, June 2013, indicate bitou bush has been effectively controlled and reduced to an insignificant abundance in a number of national parks and that cover of native species has increased significantly. â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;The public can view this report on the NPWS website at www.environment.nsw. gov.au/bitoutap/Review.htm.â&#x20AC;&#x2122; The Earth Guardians action follows a protest last week by residents against aerial spraying of bitou bush on the coastal dunes from Brunswick Heads to Belongil Beach.

cross-examining as to the whereabouts of that ‘resealable bag’. Although an important issue in the case, the cross examination was not allowed by the Magistrate who said that it was ‘not relevant’. Her Honour stated that this ‘casts a shadow’ as to whether the bag ever existed at all. Mr Bell said, ‘The decision by Judge Wells was a clear and unarguable finding that, based on the facts and evidence in this case, the conviction of Mr Scrivener by the Local Court Magistrate could not be upheld. Her Honour indicated that it was not an appropriate consideration for a Magistrate to ask ‘why would the police act in a way

like this towards the defendant’, as it reverses the burden of proof.’

Civil rights issue The outcome shines a light on local civil rights issues; the increased police presence in Mullumbimby has resulted in a handful of complaints received by The Echo regarding recent aggressive behaviour by police towards the public. Although the appeal process brought justice for Mr Scrivener, the public may feel less confident that faced with a similar situation, the Local Court will uphold their rights or allow their defences to be properly heard. When asked what he had learnt from this experience,

Mr Scrivener stated, ‘I’ve realised how easy it is for police to abuse their authority and get away with it, and how difficult it is to defend against false accusations and misrepresentations by police.’ ‘I will never again feel safe when being stopped by police and I will always record any encounter I have in the future, for my own safety and security. ‘I don’t think I would do anything differently if the same circumstances arose again, apart from making sure I had my camera rolling. ‘I would recommend to anyone who has a similar experience with police, to immediately write down a detailed and accurate account

of what happened as soon as possible after the incident. I did this and the written account was later used as the basis for an affidavit that I lodged with my complaint.’ Obtaining proper legal advice is also important. ‘I would also like to say that Cameron Bell has been a really perceptive and supportive representative throughout.’ When asked about the complaints against the officers, duty manager Inspector Darren Steel from the Tweed-Byron LAC told The Echo he had no knowledge of complaints lodged as the process is confidential and he is not on the complaints committee.

The passing of Ben McClymont

B

en McClymont was born in Nambour, Queensland on July 14, 1932, to parents Elfrieda and Ben. He passed away recently on his 81st birthday after a short battle with cancer. The family moved to the Mullumbimby area when Ben, one of eight children, was nine and he spent the rest of his life here, the past 33 years in Palmwoods. At 14 he left school and began his working career. You name it, Ben did it! Cane cutter, banana farmer, trawler deckie, mullet fisherman, carpenter’s labourer, sand miner, construction worker… the list goes on. Ben was a hard worker and provided well for his family. He also loved sport, especially rugby league. He played for the Mullumbimby club for quite a number of years. One highlight was being a member of the reserve grade team that won the premiership in 1960. In latter years he transferred his skills to the bowling green. Ben had a few passions in life and one was orchid growing. In the early 80s a neighbour gave Ben an orchid as a gift and from this it

all began. He loved to talk orchids with anyone who would listen. He was forthcoming in sharing growing skills and was known to be very generous with sharing pieces of his prize-winning orchids with friends. In 2005 Ben was awarded one of the highest awards for orchid breeding for his Brunswick Bonanza Ben, a mauve cattelya which was recognised by the Orchid Council of NSW. He received an AM award. He won many championship awards with his huge collection of orchids and his displays at the local orchid shows will be sadly missed. Another one of Ben’s passions was the Main Arm Rural Fire Service. It was part of

North Coast news daily: www.echonetdaily.net.au

his life for just over 66 years; he fought his first fire at the tender age of 14. In March this year, just before he became ill, Ben was awarded a national medal for his 66 years of dedication to the service. He continued to be an active member of the team up until just recently, now not fighting fires but manning the pump. The recently acquired new fire truck has been dedicated to the memory of Ben. He would have been truly hon-

oured. A few days before his passing the boys from the brigade drove the truck up to Mullumbimby hospital so Ben could have a glimpse of what he really wanted to see before he died. He was very ill but showed some recognition of their presence with the raising of his hand. Ben will be sadly missed by Pauline, his wife of 57 years, his sons, daughtersin-law, grandchildren, greatgrandchildren and his extended family and friends.

Bluesfest site rezoned but not Splendour Chris Dobney

Bluesfest has had its Tyagarah tea-tree farm festival site rezoned for tourist purposes as part of a schedule of variations that Byron Shire Council will submit to the state planning department with its new LEP application. But after heated debate, councillors voted to retain the existing environmental zoning of the Yelgun site for the Splendour in the Grass festival, known as North Byron Park-

lands. The issues affecting North Byron Parklands were that the site is in a particularly ecologically sensitive area, adjacent to the Billinudgel Nature Reserve, and it was also recognised that Council was not the consent authority for the Splendour test events. The Splendour rezoning motion was defeated with Crs Ibrahim, Cubis, Woods and Hunter voting for. Q Read more on this story at

Why I want to see the North Coast CSG Free “I think locals deserve to hear the real story about risky coal seam gas from independent experts rather than just being bombarded with industry spin from the CSG aligned National Party politicians and lobbyists.” There is no life without water... Independent research by the National Water Commission has found many potential dangers associated with coal seam gas developments and its impact on our precious water systems. Out of the many risks identified by the commission, let me briefly touch on three standout threats that underpin my drive to see the North Coast declared CSG Free. 1. The commission warns that CSG drilling may cause reductions in surface water flows that could affect surface water systems, ecosystems, irrigation and grazing lands. It has the potential to also lead to land subsidence over large areas of ground; 2. CSG production requires large volumes of waste water to be treated. Should this water make its way into other surface water systems it could alter natural flow patterns and have significant impacts on water quality, and on river and wetland health; and 3. The practice of hydraulic fracturing, or fracking, involves injecting water, sand, and chemicals into underground rock to free reserves of gas. Fracking has the potential to damage the quality of groundwater and result in cross-contamination between aquifers. On the issue of water alone, I believe that CSG presents itself as just too great a poisonous risk to residents, the environment, farms, valleys, communities, and to our general prosperity. Our region has already embraced renewable energy technologies like solar. Renewables need to be our focus as our entire economy transitions away from fossil fuels, including dangerous coal seam gas, into a Low Carbon Economy.

Local activist faces 10 years for Talisman Sabre action Hans Lovejoy

Northern rivers-based cultural and political activist, Graeme Dunstan, is facing court with a possible maximum of ten yearsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; jail after assisting another protester to gain entry to a military airfield. The cheery and optimistic 71-year-old revolutionary told The Echo he faces charges in Rockhampton court of wilful damage of Commonwealth property after he assisted Bryan Law, now deceased, to cut

though wire and attack a $35 million dollar Tiger helicopter with a mattock. The action took place during the joint US and Australian Talisman Sabre military training exercise in 2011. Dunstan says he will represent himself and will use the Ploughshare Movement defence. Ploughshare is a pacifist movement, mainly anti-nuclear and Christian, where civilians directly prevent weaponry from harming

other civilians by disabling it through whatever means. Dunstan claims that, while uncommon, the movement is widely respected among those aware of it.

Death machines Dunstan says the helicopters were brand new, and were bought specifically for the Afghanistan war. â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;They are death machines: they have no other role. There are no winches or stretchers and there is only room for a pi-

lot and gunner.â&#x20AC;&#x2122; Dunstan says the instigator, Bryan, created a character called the Peace Preacher in Rockhampton. â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;He announced his intention to hit a helicopter and built a public profile.â&#x20AC;&#x2122; Dunstan says he will face Judge Samual, â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;who has a reputation of being strict in the courtroom but not known as a jailerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;. Activist Bryan Law died in April this year aged 58 of heart failure from acute diabetes while awaiting trial.

Biggest little festival puts Mullum on the map their classic charms. ‘Mullumbimby is a really fun small town. I hope the weekend feels like some sort of big weird family reunion or a home coming party.’ Glenn believes that festival patron Mama Kin perhaps summed it up best last year when she said, ‘You don’t get festival fatigue at this festival. You can go of four days straight and still be fresh.’ I

N

ow in its sixth year, Mullumbimby Music Festival released its program announcement this week, with festival director Glenn Wright believing that while some might think promoting a boutique festival in a small town is an impossible task, especially in the shadow of two of Australia’s premier festivals, it’s pretty straightforward. ‘You need to look at things from a different angle and embrace what others might think is an impossible task,’ says Glenn. ‘It’s getting easier as people get the festival and its reputation as an alternative model to the norm.’ Wright prides himself on being able to sniff out talent before it breaks, offering it to music lovers in a less intense, more accessible format than the usual mega festival. ‘Clairy Browne, Husky, and Washington are all examples of acts that have played Mullum Music Festival and have gone on to much higher profile careers,’ he says. ‘In that way I see Mullum Music Festival as the kind of festival where it’s very likely that

the act you’ve heard of that you are watching today, is a household name tomorrow. Probably the biggest example of that is Darren Percival who has played the festival many times and, after The Voice, became a household name.

Musical integrity ‘I think it’s because it’s a boutique fest with a limited capacity its always going to be like that. I don’t have unlimited budgets to spend on massive concert artists. Rather, within a given budget it’s my task to create an exciting event with great musical integrity.’ Glenn also believes the festival is about showcasing the uniqueness of Mullum-

bimby. ‘It’s an opportunity to look at the venues in a different way,’ says Glenn of his use of over ten of the small town halls, pubs and clubs. ‘The festival allows venue owners to introduce their venue to patrons who may have never walked through doors before. Like the ExServices Club is one of the most lively venues at the festival. Some people may have never been in there before because of a preconception of what an RSL is like. ‘It helps break down some of the perceptions people may have had about those particular venues. Each venue has its own strong character, and we try to enhance and celebrate

It’s an inclusive festival, says Glenn. ‘Even if you don’t have a ticket to the festival, you can still watch street theatre, go to the free events, be part of the street parade and experience the excitement of the town coming to life. In that way we hope we provide some sort of goodwill for the entire community with benefits flowing on to local artists, local shops, and also to the bigger cultural picture of Mullumbimby as a unique regional town and counterculture hub.’ Wright is excited about what the event has in store this year. ‘Sketch the Rhyme will be on 7pm every night at the ExServices. It’s hip-hop, and fun with drawing and music, so

its entirely mad and interactive. It’s like a parlour game. This year also features local performers, the youth mentorship, songwriting comps, tree planting, and a host of national and international performers. So what is it like booking Mullum Music Festival?

‘Its like directing my own Baz Luhrmann movie,’ laughs Wright, who reckons he’s got a few big announcements still to come. Mullum Music Festival runs from November 21 to 24. Tickets are on sale now at www.mullummusicfestival. com.

Beige wafflethon fails to ignite nation

Volume 28 #10

August 13, 2013

Naked in public There’s never a dull, or even modest, moment in the easternmost part of the nation. Take last week, when nude beach-goers were under Council’s watchful eye in the ordinary meeting. Despite a staff recommendation to revoke the clothing-optional status of Tyagarah Nature Reserve, councillors deferred it to a stakeholder consultation. While bathing nude is generally not a threat to the public, there is no doubt that Tyagarah’s Grays Lane, specifically the tea-tree lakes and Tyagarah beach’s sand dunes, is a place where public sex acts are, well umm, performed. And that has unsurprisingly shocked and offended those who were not aware of the activities that exist there. Nothing like walking little Timmy past a grunting, hairy, fat, masturbating old weirdo to get some beach time. If a film crew visited daily to collect footage, would the incidents decrease? Maybe the typical pervert would instead revel in a new found celebrity status and become even more of an exhibitionist. Is that even possible? One imagines you’ve reached a plateau of no return with that behaviour. Interestingly, the same issue was tackled at the Boatharbour Nature Reserve near Lismore years ago, where National Parks and Wildlife Service (NPWS) locked the gate to what had become a seedy pick-up joint. The problem with the tea-tree lakes and beach is that locking up such a large area would be well, impossible, and unfortunately signs alerting the public are regularly stolen or taken down. Hopefully a solution can be brokered where baring your bum on the Tyagarah beach is allowed and the creeps that frequent a traditional Aboriginal birthing ground are expelled. Hans Lovejoy, editor

n spite of the breathless anticipation by the media, the great debate was not only inconclusive, but something of an anticlimax – neither leader performed to his potential and there were was no real biffo. Supporters of both sides claimed victory but most impartial observers scored it as a nil-all draw, without even the prospect of a penalty shoot-out to settle the issue. But in one sense at least it could prove a circuit breaker; it took the heat out of what had been a pretty terrible week for Kevin Rudd and the ALP. Even his final preparations had been disrupted; while Tony Abbott was jogging through Sydney with City to Surf runners dressed in gorilla suits (a subtle tribute to the opposition leader’s legendary hairiness and customary swagger?) Rudd had to deal with yet another internal crisis. Having already dumped his candidate for the seat of Forde to make room for Peter Beattie, he lost another couple as the party’s preselections for Kennedy and Hotham respectively jumped and were pushed as revelations of past bad behaviour came to light. It was not the confident buildup he would have chosen. And it came at the end of a very ordinary start to what, even at five weeks rather than Julia Gillard’s projected 26, was a longer than usual campaign. The only highlight had been Peter Beattie, and that too had its downside: hadn’t Rudd promised to return the control of preselections to the membership? Yet at the first opportunity, he was parachuting in the celebrity candidate to end them all. Not an entirely good look. The Beattie announcement at least gave Labor a muchneeded fillip; the party was

going backwards in the polls, now definitely a couple of points behind, and Abbott had not only overtaken Rudd on the measure of trust, but was miles ahead on economic management and was rapidly closing the gap as preferred prime minister. As Rudd admitted more than once, if an election had been held that weekend, Abbott would now be moving into the Lodge. Labor was looking bogged down with Rudd reduced to a blatant scare campaign about Abbott raising the GST and imposing it on items now ex-

the same plea and in the second week Whitlam obliged, causing it to go down in history as ‘The week Gough pulled his finger out’. Labor supporters hoped for a rerun nearly 40 years later, and therefore placed perhaps unrealistic expectations on the pivotal event which would kick off week two: the first, and, it appeared at that stage, possibly the only, great debate. As it turned out, both Rudd and Abbott chose to play a defensive game almost from the start. After the usual homilies about the wonder and beauty of Australia, they explained that

For much of the time Rudd and Abbott appeared to be going up and down on the same spot. by Mungo MacCallum empt, like food – what would this do to the price of a jar of Vegemite? It was quintessential old politics of the kind which Rudd affected to despise; his only solace was that Abbott was going down the same path, using a visit to the Brisbane Ekka with two of his long-suffering daughters to foreshadow an inquiry into pink batts. It had become frankly embarrassing, even for Graham ‘whatever-it-takes’ Richardson, who used his weekly column in The Australian to implore: ‘Will Kevin Rudd, the great campaigner, please stand up.’ Rudd, said Richo, was looking listless, almost irritable; where was that fabled charm? For those with long memories, there was an echo of the 1974 campaign, during which another great campaigner, Gough Whitlam, failed to gain traction in the first week: another supportive journalist made

there could be problems ahead as the mining boom wound down its investment phase (an event which Abbott, absurdly, blamed on the carbon tax and the mining tax) and that they, and only they, were fitted to manage them. For much of the time they appeared to be going up and down on the same spot and making little or no progress, much like the horses I used to back. There was no real passion and not even much conviction. But there were what are now called announceables: Rudd promised a gay marriage bill in the first 100 days with Labor having a conscience vote and asked Abbott to guarantee the same for his party; Abbott, ducked and promised a decision on a second Sydney airport in his first term, a pledge which did not even meet Anthony Albanese’s commitment to start construction within the same period. Tackled with the question posed by the former

Treasury head Ken Henry of the continuing need to revive revenue by either cutting spending or raising taxes or both, the two indulged in a wafflethon. However Rudd executed one minor coup by admitting, again, that Abbott was ahead, and likely on the present figures to become prime minister on September 7. Surely, then, he had to spell his costings and the saving he had made would make to pay for them? Abbott’s response was bluster and denial; for my money this was the nearest either got to landing a serious blow. So I gave the edge in content to Rudd, along with a fairly clear win on manner: Rudd spoke directly to the camera while Abbott kept glancing shiftily from side to side, eyes narrowed in a rather sinister way. But who cares what I thought? With the ABC the only principal channel showing the debate, not too many of those in the marginals are likely to have been tuned in, and will get their news, as usual, from the pro-Abbott tabloids and shock jocks. To capitalise, Abbott wants any future debates in an all-in public forum, which would suit his demagoguery; Rudd wants to retain the more measured approach where the questions are asked by experts. The impasse may mean no more debates at all, which would be a pity. Sunday’s effort was far from riveting, but it was the nearest we are likely to get to a direct comparison of the two men seeking to lead us for the next three years and beyond. Come to think of it, they may not even be the two we would choose for the contest. But hey, that’s democracy, Australian style. Q See Mungo’s video at

Positive results Since meeting with Jeff Barnes after last week’s letter complaining about Byron United’s involvement with New Years Eve festivities I would like to set the record straight on this issue once and for all so that all Byron Bay residents understand the facts. Byron United doesn’t have a New Years Eve Committee. The 2012 New Years Eve Committee and all previous New Years Eve committees (while I have served on Byron United’s Board) have been run by Byron Shire Council. Secondly, Byron United’s only involvement with New Years Eve was the request from Council to raise the funds to pay for the fireworks, which we raised through our members and associates. As a volunteer, I serve on various Council committees along with other concerned residents – these committees all

report back to your elected council who form policy and make all the decisions in the Council Chambers. While I personally stand by my concerns over capacity and occupancy numbers at some camping areas around Byron Bay and how this can add to problems with crowd management on our streets on NYE, I would like to thank Cr Chris Cubis who facilitated this meeting between Mr Barnes of the Red Devils and me to discuss and work through these areas of mutual concern. This meeting was very amicable and positive and as a result we both pledged to work more closely together to achieve better results for the town and our organisations. I am of the firm belief that our community is full of passionate and caring people all trying to do their best to make our town a better place to live and visit, and that if we continue to talk and work more closely together we will have a positive outcome. Paul Waters President Byron United

Beyond duopoly I noted with interest in Mungo MacCallum’s page last week where he ‘tried a small experiment’ on the tented crowd of about 800 at the Writers’ Festival, asking how many thought that Kevin Rudd had been a good and effective prime minister. About 50 raised their hand. Asked how many planned to vote for Tony Abbott, six responded.

Meat in a test tube Taste-testers in London recently sampled the world’s first laboratory-grown hamburger – and proclaimed it a virtual success. Dutch scientist Mark Post, who created the burger, predicts that in vitro meat could be commercially available in as little as 10 years. Switching to in vitro meat will help stop animal suffering, reduce carbon emissions, conserve land and water, and make the food supply safer. Scientists even say that laboratory-grown meat will require up to 60 per cent less energy than conventional meat. And eating meat that was created from stem cells

in a sterile laboratory seems much more appetising than eating the dismembered body parts of pigs, chickens, cows, and other animals who are raised in filthy factory farms and slaughtered on killing floors that are covered with blood, vomit, urine, and faeces. That is just plain sick. But don’t worry if you don’t want to eat in vitro meat, or animal flesh. Great-tasting mock meats and other vegan foods are readily available in local supermarkets, health food stores, and restaurants. Give them a try.

Should we cease the sale of alcohol at midnight? Q In response to the comments by the Byron Bay Liquor Accord chairperson in last week’s Echo, we would like to put the following on the record. We are concerned about alcohol-fuelled violence in our community. Byron Shire (with Byron Bay CBD as the ‘hotspot’) has almost four times the NSW State incidence of alcohol-related violent assaults. We are concerned that the voluntary measures adopted by some liquor outlets in Byron Bay are not adequate to prevent the violence. We are calling for all liquor outlets in Byron Shire to cease the sale of alcohol at 12 midnight. One of the aims of our group is to educate our com-

munity about the prevalence of alcohol-related violence in our own CBD. We welcome the local alcohol industry to be part of this community voice and adopt simple evidence-based measures that have been proven to prevent and reduce alcohol related violence elsewhere. Last Drinks at 12 is somewhat bewildered: why is the local alcohol industry trialling other voluntary measures that are not based on evidence? Why is this trial taking place in winter which is always the ‘quiet time’ in town? This trial will be evaluated by the OLGR bureaucracy in October and their full report will not be available for public scrutiny until April next year – well after the peak

time for alcohol sales and related violence. Everyone supporting a safer community by the reduction of the oversupply of alcohol is encouraged to attend our meeting at 2pm on August 24 at the Byron Bay Community Centre to learn more. Michele Joncourt Member Last Drinks at 12 QThe alcohol related violence in Byron Bay is a law and order problem, and those responsible for law and order are the police. They are clearly failing, because it seems they are not doing their jobs properly. If the violence is occurring at say 10pm to 2am then this

dictates that almost every single policeman/woman should be on duty at this time. If chefs, bar staff and bus drivers have to be on duty when they are most needed, then why can’t policemen be? We owe it to our young people to provide a safe place for them to party and enjoy their youth, instead of curbing freedoms for everyone because of poor allocation of policing resources. The problem is the apparent inefficiency of the police, not the freedoms of the vast majority to have a drink past 12am. Whatever is next!

violence in Byron supporting the change in liquor laws? I’m in the statistical age demographic of alcohol-related violence and in the last six months of partying every weekend I haven’t seen any. People who like fighting generally fight, the rest of us walk away, so who are these laws meant to be protecting? Could a free shuttle service ending at 3am each night solve our problems? A free ride home may be the perfect motivation for partygoers to leave the streets clean, safe, empty and ready for another weekend of harmless selfsaturation. Scout Fisher Byron Bay Q Since the entire region was turned upside down last New Years Eve a committed and hard-working group of local people has researched the issue of alcohol-fuelled violence in other communities and has discovered that there are concrete measures that we can implement to restore the equilibrium within our town. Right now all of us are being affected by the alcohol fuelled violence that is pri-

marily preventable. Jobs are being lost because people are not investing in this region. Families are not visiting our town because they feel threatened and unsafe and, as for our own youth, they also do not feel secure on our streets after midnight. We commend the liquor outlets who have recognised that we have serious problems but we now know that only a raft of real and compulsory measures can and will allow our community to stop being known as one of the most violent in the state. The existing mild and non-compulsory measures adopted by some of the local liquor outlets will not work. We need all of your support on August 24 at the BBCC at an information afternoon. The speakers will provide evidence based data from all over the country that will show that united communities that proactively seek a solution to alcohol –fuelled violence can through serious and proven methods lower the violence in their towns.

ruption and this adversarial political system corrupts everyone, not least because the mainstream media is owned by ‘business as usual’ and all politicians need them. The Right make no secret about where their loyalties lie. Indeed one of our apparently more sincere local liars is currently selling out the northern rivers to CSG and seems happy to continue strip mining local government. Labor, too, is clearly owned by ‘business as usual‘, which leaves us with the supposedly principled Greens. To maintain their illusion of political power, Bob Brown and Christine Milne backed the mining tax legislation, knowing full well it had been written by the mining industry and had holes in it you could drive mining trucks full of money through. Most of us know ‘business as usual’ is thoroughly unsustainable. We are presently attempting the transition to a sustainable future, which is vital if we are to survive as a species.

to accommodate this ‘need’ by providing them with tiny 600ml water bottles, which stallholders were directed to charge at no less than $4. Of course this added yet another cost to an already expensive festival, but in this day and age we all know the real cost of all this plastic and who, ultimately, pays for it – our oceans! Our oceans are currently choking to death on plastic. And it shouldn’t take too much imagination to picture what life on Earth might be like with a dead ocean. Today it’s the fish dying, tomorrow it’s us, just as each strand in the web is connected to and shares the same fate as the web it belongs to. Wake up, people. Ban plastic and this will be just a starting point to healing this Earth. If we, as consumers, do not put the hard word on big business, who will? The lack of ethics and responsibility of our businesses and governments is killing us all, while we hand them all our money for it.

Why, as in the case of the TEL 445 licence, has exploration actually commenced? Perhaps the National Party candidate knows something the CSG mining companies don’t. In which case, why not enlighten them, advise them to stop searching immediately, surrender their licences, and leave? Ron Nuttall Tyalgum

What stories of life and humanity are you trying to tell us in your show? I’m trying to remind us of the things we’ve forgotten, dismissed or buried. I often say my job as a theatre artist is not to teach my audience anything but to remind them. I’m an awful teacher. But I do know how to remind people of things they already know and do it in a way that they can see those things from a slightly different perspective. That doesn’t really answer your question but that’s the answer my addled jet-lagged brain can come up with at this moment. I promise

I’ll be recovered by show time! How do you know when you have touched a crowd? Many different ways. Laughter. Silence. Cheers. Gasps. Heckles. Walk-outs. Applause. A lack of applause.

F TAURUS: This week’s Leonine configurations have an expansive effect on your heartstrings, wallet and mental processes – waistline as well if you overindulge at the many excellently catered celebrations. Chances to fatten up the finances are also available via networking with mates, locals or interesting visitors. G GEMINI: This peripatetic, Gemini-friendly week offers lots of interesting possibilities and entertaining innovations. While networking and collecting information like a human computer, you’ll realise the exaggeration factor’s operating and financial factors are being talked up. Don’t get suckered into unrealistic propositions or attractive scams. H CANCER: This week could bring to light surprising revelations that have been hiding in plain sight.

mollify prickly situations. I LEO: This salubratorial, fantabulicious week makes restricting pleasure-spending zero fun, so you probably won’t. It also amplifies Your Majesty’s popularity and prestige to near-dangerous levels of getting carried away, but don’t. Remember hubris. Fortunately the force is with you, so use it to access your inner humility. J  VIRGO: This week’s people may not appreciate your Virgoan take on things. Might get fired up and bite your head off, lion-fashion. So focus on something more enjoyable, like finding whatever in your life needs to be redesigned or left behind, whether that’s ideas, behaviour, ambitions or associates. K LIBRA: Don’t let arrogant attitudes disturb the balance in Libraland, because this week supports whoever controls their emotional responses. As always, diplomatic cool is the smart tool. Most helpful mantra? The body strengthens with play, the mind heals with laughter and the spirit adores joy… L SCORPIO: With the celestial weather report predicting hurt pride, chances are you might get a bit, well… huffy. If control issues are up and moody madness sets in, step away and get an objective reality check. Then consult your organic technology: what’s your heart, your emotional compass, saying?

LY

M S AGITTARIUS: With this week’s people beyond stubborn, you as a mutable sign will have to adapt. Or not, as you please. Either way, wait for inspiration rather than pushing. Focus your energy and attention on cooperation, and by late-week Sagittarius moon tricky situations will have loosened up. N CAPRICORN: With egos on the wing and this week’s citizens poncing round taking themselves uber-seriously, why join them? If your efforts are critically received, just continue doing your best – when others are less self-obsessed, they’ll be suitably impressed. Meanwhile, there’s no lack of entertaining antics and tangible satisfactions. O AQUARIUS: This week’s volatile situations benefit from taking a bit of space or allowing someone else theirs until friction dissipates. But while that’s happening, allow this fabulous, flamboyant transit to ignite your own originality, hilarity and creative spontaneity. Do something fun, indulgent, extravagant and feel-good. P P ISCES: This vivid, vibrant, high-energy week features emotional extravaganzas, blasts from the past, glimpses into your future, unexpected news, mended friendships and stunning reality checks. All keeping you so busy that by the end of the week life turns a corner without your even noticing.

SYDNEY MORNING HERALD

FOR THE PAST 20 YEARS THE FALLS MUSIC AND ARTS FESTIVAL has been held in Victoria’s seaside Lorne; for ten

years a sister event has occurred in Tasmania’s Marion Bay. It seems fitting then that the third, younger, sister event should belong to Australia’s other alternative coastal mecca, Byron Bay. ‘The Falls Music and Arts Festival has a very Byron feel,’ festival director Brandon Saul says. ‘People are friendly, it’s colourful, diverse, and there’s a great sense of community and respect. I’m really looking forward to working with local talent in this area to bring a unique Byron flavour to this edition of Falls.’ The Falls Festival team have used the opportunity to assess what worked and what didn’t with regards to the site and access. Immigrant Music ‘We’re getting in and doing some serious work on the site to ensure Part psychedelic folk, part traditional country rock, Immigrant it’s ready for Falls and that people can enter and exit efficiently,’ says Union have been building their name through stellar live Mr Saul. ‘There will be two access points, frequent shuttle buses, performances at some of the country’s most iconic venues and marshals at each offsite bus stop, 1–3-day car passes as well as boutique festivals. Their continuous string of live shows has earned designated ‘kiss-and-drop’ areas. General admission camping is free, the band rave reviews.

E N T E R T A I N M E N T

See Mandy live at www.echonetdaily.net.au HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO MY BABY This week my first-born daughter turns 18. It seems unbelievable that the little girl who once freaked me out while I was driving by saying, ‘Mum we’re all toys, and God’s been playing a game with us forever,’ is now able to vote, to drink, and if she had a gun, possibly to shoot as well. Thankfully she’s moved through her rather fatalistic existential four-year-old phase to a refreshingly restrained, only mildly hedonistic approach to early adulthood. The other day my darling girl lamented that she was worried that she was turning 18 and didn’t have any ‘clubbing shoes’. No, these are not for beating seals to death in the snow; these are the giant vertigo-inducing heels strapped to the skinny legs of young women who love the thrill of vodka shots at a great height. It’s weird thinking of the five-year-old girl who I wouldn’t allow to have sugar, or to watch PG-rated films because they were too scary or go on the merry go round in case she fell off, is now able to front up to a bar and order herself a drink. Or two. Or three. Not that she hasn’t imbibed the odd alcoholic concoction from time to time; it’s just that she’s never held the passport to adulthood that allows you passageway from the sandpit to the pokie room. I’m not ready. I need another year. Or maybe ten. In the process of giving birth to my extensive brood it had never occurred to me that it wasn’t just babies I was

Kevin Welch

bringing into this world; it was adults. Adults with their own unique approach, their own idiosyncratic thinking entirely different and in some cases completely opposite from my own. Adults who refuse point blank to follow the careers that their overbearing mumma might choose for them, who leave their $300 hair straighteners on the floor to be crushed by passing traffic, who spend too much time texting, who don’t drink enough water, who don’t wash their makeup off before going to bed, who don’t go to bed to start with, who don’t read enough books, who don’t finish their antibiotics, who won’t take cardigans, or warm pants, on a cold day, who wear shorts so tiny that grown men’s eyes have been involuntarily extracted unwittingly from their sockets from excessive and unwelcome perving. If my girl notices some ‘old man’ watching her, she’ll shriek in mildly titillated disgust. ‘Oh my god, he’s like 30. Ergh!’ It’s preposterous that the tiny baby that I first held on 14 August 1995, the first new baby I had ever held in fact, who looked at me deeply in quiet wide-eyed wonderment (could have been the shot of pethedine I had just before delivery) is now a woman. I catch myself watching her in disbelief. When she arrived back from London a few weeks ago I watched her wheel her luggage through arrivals with the other travellers, a pretty girl with long dark hair and skinny legs, looking around for her mother. A complete person on her own life trajectory. It’s almost more of a miracle than birth. But it was the birth that changed me first. The first meeting with my first child was unbelievable. I had floated through the pregnancy with a kind of loving detachment, aware rationally that I was having a baby, looking forward to the concept of having a baby, but completely unprepared for the spiritual awakening of what it feels like to make and then be responsible

try to do the same for you. What’s your creative process. How do you construct a song? One word leads to the next. Sometimes I’m just following the idea to see where it leads. Oftentimes it takes me somewhere I never would have gone on my own. Is it hard to be objective about a song once you’ve written it? Can you know if it’s going to translate well to performance or album?

I’ve been influenced by the usual host of famous writers: Guthrie, Hank, Simon, Waits, Newman, Hoagy, Prine, Guy, Cohen, etc. Also all the guys I spent years down in the trenches with: Kieran Kane, John Hadley, Olney, Harlan Howard… too many to list really. In some ways I’d have to say I’m more influenced by the

for a brand-new human. The pelvis-shattering pain and then pop, she’s here. I remember the shock. I would have been less surprised by a new car. ‘It’s a Corolla!’ Instead, I gasped, ‘It’s a baby’. I couldn’t believe it. It was like knowing what you were getting for Christmas, and getting it on Christmas day and then still being overwhelmed by surprise. I was in awe of the mystery of personhood, unable to fathom how nine months of my growing fat could have possibly created a doorway for this precious little stranger. The strangers that we come to know, or at least try to. I know she is scared of the dark, she won’t drink milk, is terrified of porcelain dolls and to my chagrin loves Kim Kardashian and enjoys reciting episodes to me when I’m trapped in the car. I spent an hour or more poring over photos of her, looking for the lines of her adult face in the baby. The sleeping newborn wrapped in my synthetic fur coat in a basket I found at Vinnies (could have been a SIDS campaign), the baby smiling at the camera holding an orange, the little girl in the white frilly dress dragging a broken doll, the girl in the Batman outfit, the girl riding her new pink bike, the girl laughing at something I can’t see, the girl sulking under the Christmas tree, the girl in her bikinis making sandcastles at Wategos, the girl with the giant backpack in her school uniform. It’s finished. My girl’s childhood is done. Too fast. The wonderful, wanton and sometimes woeful world of adulthood awaits. Happy Birthday, Darling Girl. Xxx

Dubmarine

for Boomerang

SMASHING TOGETHER DUB, DANCEHALL, reggae, drum 'n' bass, and just a little touch of rock, the nine-piece tour-deforce is now set to unleash the first single â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Beat in Control â&#x20AC;&#x201C; from their highly anticipated second album due in the second half of 2013. How hard is it to keep all the schedules and life plans matched up for a band with nine members? It can be hard at times with certain members having children or some of us having other bands to do shows. Also sometimes with work situations it can be hard for some but generally, we are all committed to the band and its full fruition.

Culture La augh it Up The third Thursday of the month sees comedy in the form of BellyLaugh at the Brewery. For comedian Mandy Nolan, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s been a long hunt for a Byron venue where open mic works. The room at the Brewery is perfect: private, relaxed, a stage, cosy. With 10 new open mic-ers on the stand, comprising visiting and local comics, and Mandy Nolan as MC, this is one kick-arse night of comedy. Thursday, 8pm. Free.

What do you think it is about Dubmarine and your particular sound that sets you apart from other dub & drum n bass acts? We all love high energy music with a strong message and delivery as well, but our original mission was to make a dance party like a DJ kind of. We are focused on being able to produce music, like that but live and in real time. The sound its self is a mixture of- world riddims, Conscious lyrics, Bass culture music, free-style experimentation and controlled writing. What got your crew together in the first place? A mixture of luck, pre worked material and years of prior music development and experience. Of course a party was involved, thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s how we met as a core band, in a jam at a West End house party. They played instrumental dub funk and hip hop flavours, then in came the dance hall, and then â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;it was on.â&#x20AC;&#x2122; How do you know when a certain combination of musicians is the right one? Maybe in a way I feel like its a bit of the Music Gods at work. Our personalities are pretty creasy so we get along most of the time and make each other laugh a lot. How have festivals helped build your stage show and your following? Festivals allow for different types of people and in large numbers to see us. We get a feeling of what its like to be in front of a lot of people and sometimes frequently. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m sociable as well so its cool to hang out with the peeps off stage too, Woodford is great for that, Bluesfest is great for that and Boomerang will probably be great for that. Can you tell me a little about your second album coming out later this year? It is our proudest work to date, we really went out of our way to make it sound like what we are as a live act, seeing as that has been our greatest appeal. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s pretty high energy for most the part and you will find lyrics that you can think over or even act on in some cases, because it does provoke many people in a positive way. Its honest but still fun and very musical, with a nice balance of masculine and feminine elements. But for real, some

TheArts ARTIST

KAREN STONE Last year Karen Stone completed her Bachelor of Visual Arts, with honours at Southern Cross University. This year she is presenting her first solo exhibition at the Northern Rivers Community Gallery. The exhibition, poetically entitled I remember when I was small… sitting with Gran…watching flowers on the wall, is a collection of her intriguing artworks formed from pulped fabric. Her fascinating process starts with collecting linen and cotton clothes which she then cuts into tiny pieces and pulps into a fine ‘soup’. The colours of the fabric inform the colour of the pulp, which is fed into squirter-bottles and then painted, Jackson Pollock style, onto large silk screens. As the water drips through the screen the artwork dries into a paper-like fabric. The resulting works are compelling, large-scale representations of flowers – fresh flowers, dying flowers, flowers for all occasions. The pulped clothing is imbued with memory – memories for the wearer, memories of the wearer and a time gone by. “Growing up, flowers were an ever present part of my family life. It wasn’t just in the garden and in pots on tables, they were also inside. Floral patterns were everywhere; on walls, floors, Gran’s frocks and even the crockery” says Karen. Northern Rivers Community Gallery, Ballina from August 14.

SOLARAGRAPHY WORKSHOP

Don’t miss Karen Stone’s (Dunoon) first solo exhibition entitled I remember… Her incredible large-scale depictions of flowers are created from pulped fabric. Melissa Wright’s (Lennox Head) exhibition Frolic sees the artist combine her passion for printmaking, painting and sculpture in a series of compositions depicting women in vintage bathing costumes. Melissa creates plastered boxes into which the images are incised, inked and painted. Andrew Hmelnitsky’s (Byron Bay) exhibition of paintings is called Ballina to the Border… via the Studio. In good weather Andrew paints en plein air using traditional 14th and 15th century Italian painting techniques – including making his own gesso boards and his own paint. When it’s raining he works in his studio painting abstract compositions using ink, acrylic and oil on canvas. The Northern Rivers Community Gallery is located on the corner of Cherry and Crane streets and is open Wednesday to Friday from 10am until 4pm and weekends from 9.30am until 2.30pm. Entry is free. For further details call the Gallery on 6681 6167.

THE BYRON SCHOOL OF ART The Byron School of Art has kicked off in great style with all the first classes full. Follow-up classes are soon on offer for painting, drawing and printmaking. Look out for a course coming soon called ‘The Natural World’ by Christine Willcocks and Michael Cusack in which students will move between the two artists’ studios and their different approaches. Registration and expressions of interest for those classes are now being taken. The Byron School of Art Is pleased to announce that respected artist and teacher Rene Bolten has joined the team and, because of community requests, Rene will do his still life painting classes starting in early October in Nimbin close to his home. We are really excited about extending our reach and being flexible in where our courses are on offer.

New courses coming soon

THE FEDERAL ART AUCTION After the Federal community successfully ran its ‘Save the Heart of Federal’ campaign and purchased the old church building, work has been ongoing to bring the building back to life. Part of the renewal process is to commission a significant art piece to represent the community’s gratitude to those who contributed to that campaign. Federal’s big fundraising weekend for this commission is on 24 and 25 August. Art lovers should not miss the silent auction featuring fantastic artwork. Some of the artists featured include John Dahlsen, Emma Walker, John Smith, Seabastion Toast and many more. The auction will be open for viewing/bidding from 9am-midnight Saturday and 9am-2pm Sunday. For further details please phone 6684 9313.

POLAR EXTREMES WITH JACQUELINE MARKS Jacqueline has sourced her inspiration through macro- and microscopic visual similarities and links. Her work isn’t a literal representation, but rather an attempt at capturing the essence of landscapes, scapes, and the chance to escape in her creative process. Her work is in a constant state of evolution, This time, she has been drawn to the opposite poles of the Earth within this creative production. The title reflects upon our changing times and climate. This subject matter is of great importance to us all. Jacqueline’s most inspiring moments during her process was witnessing the film ( Chasing ice, documented by the once-sceptic James Balog. Her works are driven from internal and external energies. This work has been described as sublime in nature. Come see for yourself and enjoy the space that has been so kindly offered for this one-off chance to see reverse glass paintings. Friday 16 August, 5.30–8.30pm, 1 Banksia Drive Byron Bay.

Jaanika Peerna’s weather drawings from NY, William Platz’s artist/ zombies, Rebecca Kinsey’s Brooklyn-mapping and an O’Dempsey live-performance in collaboration with Michael Dick. Support this exciting exhibition and be rewarded at www.pozible/drawntoexperience.

OCEAN SHORES ART EXPO Artists have only two open exhibitions in Byron Shire, one of which is the Ocean Shores Art Expo in August, now in its tenth year. Over 300 artworks were shown last year in the spacious Ocean Shores Public School auditorium. Local artists show and sell works and are awarded prizes to the value of over $5,000, which are provided by generous local sponsors. Ri Fraser, president, said, ‘Every year brings surprising experimentation, great visual stories, interesting techniques, and generous community sharing to put the show on’. Twelve local schools enter the Expo annually, encouraging a whole new generation of artists. The theme for this year is a quote from Margaret Olley: ‘It’s All About the LIght’. Entries online at www.osartexpo.com.

Mud Love, blood, boy – they are all heavily weighted words when used in movie titles, reliably good for a few extra bucks at the box office. Mud, you’d have to think, might have the opposite effect. More’s the pity, for this edgy, sweaty and illogically feelgood drama is loaded with all three of those lightning-rod elements. Set in a white-trash riverbank community in Arkansas, Ellis (Tye Sheridan) and Neckbone (Jacob Lofland) are fourteenyear-old buddies (not unlike Huck and Tom) who encounter Mud (Matthew McConaughey), a killer on the run, when they take

dibs on an abandoned boat. Charismatic Mud befriends the boys and inveigles them to bring him food and to scrounge and steal the materials he will need to re-float the boat and make his escape from the state troopers and his victim’s avengers. Though not a western, it draws heavily on that genre’s antiquated (to some) but never buried philosophy of an eye for an eye. Rough justice might not be to the taste of writer/ director Jeff Nichols’s natural audience, but so eloquently, if grimily, does he tell his tale that we can’t help hoping

for the best for Mud. Naïve but resourceful, Ellis and Neckbone are easily won over to Mud’s cause and it’s the relationship between the three that is so engrossing. Mud’s predicament has come about as a result of the unfaithfulness of the gal he is besotted with, Juniper (Reese Witherspoon), and there is a generally resentful attitude colouring the depiction of the female characters, including Ellis’s mama, whose separation from his father means the family home will be demolished by the state, and the older schoolgirl whom Ellis thinks

of as his girlfriend. Juniper, so important, is no more than a ‘type’ defined by her skimpy wardrobe – but this is not too serious a flaw, for what Nichols is concerned with are the emotional strengths and frailties of masculine bonding. Naturalistic performances from all – McConaughey has been a revelation since departing the rom-com scene – and the kids are fantastic. ~ John Campbell

big noise? Five mates, including Simon Pegg and Nick Frost, are reunited with the aim of finishing, at the World’s End, a pub crawl that disastrously fell short of its goal twenty years

earlier. All of the lads have gone on to make something of their lives – except for Gary (Pegg), who is stuck in a man/boy alcoholic time warp. The first of the film’s insurmountable problems comes with Gary – as a fan of Pegg, I was dismayed at the obnoxiousness of the character. I willed it to improve – Pegg is skilled at winning sympathy for the prat, but his taking centre stage with the others merely in his orbit gave the impression of it being a star’s vanity piece. The lads, none of them as keen on the venture as Gary, return to the Dibleyesque locale of their youth and start drinking. As in the not dissimilar Hot Fuzz, there is something weird about the townsfolk, who turn

else? – is all over the place, the didn’t get what the point was. ~ out to be robotic clones of pacing is jerky and at the close I John Campbell the original yokels. It’s at this juncture that the humour is intended to go into overdrive, as the boys scramble from one TUESDAY choreographed punch-up and 13 AUG chase to another. The highlight to WEDNESDAY is when one of the mechanical 21 AUG humans has his head torn off and we discover that, instead of blood, a liquid the colour of India ink gushes forth. It’s not a bad horror/sight gag, but it can only work once and after it there is little else – unless you are amused by an extended rumble of loud and drawnout slapstick. The gorgeous Rosamund Pike is thrown into the mix as a result of the OPENS THURSDAY OPENS THURSDAY 1.00PM SUNDAY ONLY writers’ wondering ‘how can we get a chick involved?’ The story THE WOLVERINE in 3D (M) ELYSIUM (MA15+) (No free tix) – of Gary’s redemption, what Thu 15-Wed 21: 11:30am, 4:35, 6:45pm Last Day in 3D!

LIVE OPERA ON SYDNEY HARBOUR

CARMEN

Behind The Candelabra Michael Douglas took on an enormously tough assignment when accepting the part of Liberace. How do you portray a larger-than-life celebrity whose career was built on excess without giving the impression that you are acting over the top? He succeeds admirably, managing to be as camp as a row of tents without resorting at any point to a limp wrist. Matt Damon as Scott, his live-in lover of six years, brings to the character his usual woodchuck earnestness, but he too, miraculously boyish-looking in the early

stages, is totally convincing, particularly when the men have their spats. What is hardest to get your head around – remembering that it was as recent as 1987 that Liberace died from complications arising from the AIDS virus, but that society’s mores have moved on rapidly since the famous piano player was at his peak – is that any of his doting fans could for one minute have believed that Liberace was not gay. His manager worked tirelessly to convince people that he was merely an eccentric dresser who had not

yet found the right woman. As elephants in the room go, it’s as strange as a shock-jock radio bully hiding his closetdwelling homosexuality from his numbskull listeners. Whatever – this is an extremely easy movie to be drawn into, thanks entirely to the performances and lavish art direction, but it has a curious emptiness. Hardly anything happens. Scott, a pretty face from Wisconsin, is introduced to Lee, Lee has him move into his Las Vegas palazzo and they share a relationship that is in the beginning passionate,

then merely intimate and ultimately, as Scott falls into drug addiction, destructive. Director Steven Soderbergh is sympathetic to both of his subjects without delving very deeply into what shaped their personalities. Liberace might as easily have been a baseballer for any emphasis that is placed on his music, but maybe he was really like that – just all bling. Rob Lowe’s reptilian plastic surgeon will make your blood run cold. Splendidly trite. ~ John Campbell

ABOUT YOUR CUSTOMERS Are your customers mostly locals or tourists? Mostly locals. We work hard to communicate with our customers and incorporate their feedback into what we do. Why do you think people come to your restaurant rather than another? Firstly it's the fresh and healthy food. Our connection with our customers has also helped us to improve what we do and they have voted for us in various awards, which has amazingly led to over a dozen awards in the last few years. How do you cater for diners with special requirements such as vegetarians, vegans and celiacs? We are very familiar with catering to such requirements. We offer a range of organic brown rice sushi and a wide variety of vegetarian, vegan and gluten-free options. The Japanese do amazing things with eggplant, for example. Because our chefs are always right there, you can request any special preparation you desire. Is there any feedback that your customers consistently give you? The best feedback they give us is that they keep coming back. We have built quite a large customer base and communicate with them through things like Facebook and newsletters.

Great Australian Ride The Great Australian Ride starts on Sunday August 18 at the Cape Byron Lighthouse, heading west some 8000km and over 20 days across the middle of the country to Australia’s most westerly point, Steep Point WA. The aim is to raise awareness of SIDS and Kids, and to raise much needed donations for this very worthy cause. Last year the ride raised over $26,000. The event itself has become a major event on Australia’s adventure motorbiking calendar and has seen significant

growth through the tireless efforts of its volunteers. Last year the website had over 101,000 views from as many as 35 different countries. This year the event features riders from up and down the east coast of Australia, NZ and Sweden. All riders fund their own way across the country. The website for The Ride is at www.thegreataustralianride. com. The Ride’s donation page is set up as an Everyday Hero account at www.everydayhero. com.au/event/thegreataustralianride2013.

‘Taxi!’ – integrated transport hub planned for Byron Bay An integrated transport hub is being proposed for Byron Bay that aims to address one of the safety concerns over the existing taxi rank. The in-principle Council support from last Thursday’s meeting will see the location of a transport hub investigated further and the possibility of part-time ranks, outside The Beach Hotel and Cheeky Monkeys, to allow safe taxi pick-ups. Locations proposed to date for the new integrated transport hub are Railway Park and Butler Street Reserve. Byron Shire mayor Simon Richardson said a new transport hub will need to overcome safety concerns that currently face the existing taxi rank at the Great Northern, not impact on traffic flow and meet the needs of taxi customers and tourism and bus operators. The stakeholder meeting held to discuss the moving of the taxi rank also recognised

that a number of other actions were required to address safety concerns. This included improvement to on-street and off-street lighting (eg car parks and alleys), lighting at the rear of businesses and taxi productivity in moving people in and out of Byron Bay. Council also heard that staff had applied for a $125,000 federal grant to help assist with the development of a Byron Bay Master Plan for the town centre and foreshore, under the Tourism Industry Regional Development Infrastructure Fund. Mayor Richardson said extensive community consultation would be required for the development of the plan. ‘The Master Plan would consider ways to reinvigorate the Byron Bay town centre and foreshore,’ he said. ‘Ideas to be considered and mapped out would include an identifiable town heart, public amenities, vehicle-free areas and foreshore space.’

A September 7 federal election has resulted in the Local Government Referendum being put on hold. Byron Shire mayor Simon Richardson said the referendum was needed to ensure the security of funding to local government. ‘We’re now left in limbo with the possibility of funding programs being withdrawn or funnelled through the state and less funds allocated at a regional level,’ he said.

‘Yes’ vote ‘A “Yes” vote would have given local government funding security. Direct funding for programs such as Roads to Recovery, Black Spot and Regional and Local Community Infrastructure Program is of vital importance to regional communities. ‘At Byron Shire we are struggling with the upkeep of our roads. To lose any funding would have dire consequences for the shire and see us slip even further behind with our infrastructure backlog. Simply put, a vote for constitutional recognition of local government would have been a vote

for more funding for potholes, bridges, drains and the like.’ Mayor Richardson urged the next prime minister to put the issue back on the agenda and to hold the referendum as soon as possible. ‘Coastal and country local government areas are already stretched and provide many services that metropolitan councils don’t.’

Road funding Byron Shire Council received over $6 million in Roads to Recovery funding from 2003 to 2012. Black Spot funding was $1.8 million in the five years from 2006 and over $9 million was received from the Regional and Local Community Infrastructure Program from 2009 to 2011. Currently, the federal government provides both direct and indirect funding to local government bodies. While its capacity to provide indirect funding is unquestioned, its constitutional ability to provide direct funding (which supports the Roads to Recovery program, among others) has been cast into doubt by recent High Court decisions.

Red faced Devils get burnt in the game from hell John Campbell

During Byron Bay’s NRRRL clash with Ballina on Sunday, a 4x4 from the local cop shop cruised into the ground and parked itself on the grassy knoll at the north end of Red Devil Park. They had either been informed that a murder was being committed, or that a bunch of blokes in red jerseys needed to be arrested and charged with playing under false pretenses. It was a perfect afternoon for the Bay’s Red Devils to showcase their strengths and make a statement of intent in front of their supporters before the commencement of next week’s semis. Their spot in the Five was assured and, assuming that reigning premiers Murwillumbah would knock over Marist Brothers – which they did – a chance to host the first play-off was on offer. An estimated crowd of 5,498 eager punters were in attendance to see the boys turn it on. Those who remained to the bitter end can only have been devastated by

the local side’s inept, at times klutzy performance. For the record, the Ballina Seagulls, a man down for over an hour following the send-off of their mercurial centre Clarence Kelly, were untroubled in racking up a 36-0 thrashing of their northern neighbours. Both sides started keenly,

creating chances with chips to the in-goal and forcing line drop-outs from their opponents. Kelly’s dismissal came out of the blue after a strong break from secondrower Joseph Gordon, who has been consistently good for the Bay. The ref gave Kelly his marching orders for the elbow he dropped into Gor-

Byron soaring in stellar season Peter Griffin

Byron Bay rugby has climbed to third on the First Grade table after a brave 28–19 win in Grafton on Saturday. It was the Bay’s tenth win from 14 outings in an already stellar season. The Bay started brightly despite the marathon road trip and were soon camped in opposition territory. From a scrum close to the line the formidable front row trio of Craig Wallace, Josh Smith and Dan Richards laid the platform for Michael Armstrong to score his ninth try of the season. Fullback George Kitching is an immense talent but a reluctant goal-kicker. In the absence of point-scoring machine Nathan Nicholls, the Englishman stepped up to the tee and piloted the conversion and three penalties in quick succession. Down 16–0 and with the natives growing restless, Grafton responded with an expansive style of play and were rewarded with a scintillating length of the field try on the left wing. Byron responded in kind when centre Rob Lynch broke the line in his own half and used his newfound deft passing skills to send his centre partner racing away.

In the final play of the half Grafton rocked the visitors with another converted try. When hostilities resumed Byron’s mettle was thoroughly tested. Wallace had left the field with a stinger to the shoulder, Smith was soon after sin-binned along with flanker Tom Homer and all the momentum now shifted to the home side. The Bay were missing captain Pete Shaw (proud new father to the beautiful Lilly) and called on rugby immortal Mick ‘Wombat’ Leece. The veteran relished the old-fashioned stoush and was soon in the thick of the action. With a place in the finals at stake Byron defended their line for more than 20 minutes. Both scrum and lineout were now in disarray, and under immense pressure the Bay lacked the necessary composure to control what little possession they had. Character and grim defence was the answer. Wallace returned to the fray and with the set piece now functioning Byron had weathered the storm. Ryan Betts won a series of important lineouts and back to back penalties gave the visitors field position. Evoking memories of his match winner against Lennox Head, playmaker Jash

Saeck stepped inside tired defenders to finally seal the match. Grafton rallied with a last minute try but the sound of the siren put an end to the tension. Armstrong and second rower Matt Larsson were the best of the forwards on a day marked by courage rather than flair. Halfback Jack Dickson played despite severe injury and his assured delivery and astute reading of the play were central to the victory. Wallace and Smith were brave but the story of the day was captain Harry Nuttall. The star flanker was left writhing from a fair but brutal collision late in the first half. He went on to lead his team to victory in the most courageous fashion. His tears at the end of the game were part joy, part relief and partly the rising pain of his injured shoulder. Nuttall never once looked at the sideline and played most of the game with a suspected cracked collarbone. It is a measure of the man and a measure of Byron Bay rugby’s season. The Bay travel to Lismore on Saturday to meet the competition leaders before playing the final round at home against reigning champions Lennox Head.

don’s head, but the game’s turning point resulted in the visitors, led by canny captain

Andrew Battese, rising to the challenge and their hosts losing composure and concentration. Piggy-back penalties took Ballina into the Devils’ twenty and they made no mistake in getting the opening try – despite being 12 against 13 it was they who were able to create the overlap. The Seagulls scored again from an intercept of an ill-conceived harbour bridge cut-out pass when going through the hands might have been more sensible. At 10-0 it was looking pretty crook, but not beyond a fightback. Any idea that the Bay might snap out of it was quashed when Ballina put on a nice set piece to put their five-eighth in untouched as the siren sounded for oranges. It was a killing blow.

The home side’s second forty was awful – we’ll leave it at that. The Devils now travel to Lismore to take on Marist Brothers in a knock-out semi. They will be strengthened by the return of a handful of recent absentees, and there can be no doubting the side’s potential – they have beaten premiership favourites Murwillumbah and perennial heavyweights the Grafton Ghosts – but Sunday’s poor effort suggested a complacency that, one hopes, the boys are capable of ridding themselves. Winning has as much to do with an attitude that cannot be turned on and off like a tap. Sunday’s performance went from sloppy to embarrassing and if the Bay have not learnt from it they might as well not turn up this weekend.

Not the day for Babes Gary Osbiston

The Brunswick Babes soccer team travelled to Bangalow for a 10am kick-off. But only hours before, striker Isabelle called in sick. She was the latest player to fall foul of a virus that has gone through the team. The coach had to make another reshuffle to the team. Julia led the team out and for the

first 25 minutes; both teams played a very even game with opportunities at both ends. With only minutes before halftime, Bangalow strung a series of beautiful passes together and the last pass found an unmarked player only metres out – she coolly slammed the ball past a diving Zoe. Halftime 1–0 Bangalow. The second half followed much the same path as the first half,

chances at both ends. As most enjoyed the weekend’s glorious weather, on the field it was like a summer day and both teams were feeling the heat. This Brunswick team never gives up, but this was not their day. The final score was 1–0 Bangalow. Another fine effort from the Babes – fingers crossed for a fully fit team next week when they play Byron Bay.

Shiners land Minor Premiership in Brunswick Dean Trevaskis

With a who’s who of club legends in attendance, glorious sunshine and celebration in the air, the Mullumbimby Moonshiners went toe to toe with Lismore in a battle for the minor Premiership. Ironically it was the same opposition and ref that saw the Moonshine odyssey kick off 25 years ago. In keeping with tradition, the game was hard, cut lunches were thrown and the faithful gave the man in purple plenty of stick. Mullum, despite a threeweek lay-off, came out swinging from the hip. An inspired Jimmy Pyne running like a wounded bull set up the first try, carrying the ball and a few defenders deep into Lismore territory. Dunc Kendall followed up then offloaded for a clever one-two between the talisman Teale Pyne and the bearded Buddha Jarad Hicks. When Lismore attacked the defence was staunch. Finesse was backed up with grunt as Jacko Lewin and Jimmy P landed bone-jarring tackles.

Jimmy Chester litters the field with Lismore players before off-loading for the try of the day on an extraordinarily excellent Saturday. Photo Tree Faerie.

Duncan Kendall made try-saving tackles twice stopping rampaging props in their tracks. Veteran Seymour Walters was excellent securing the ball at the breakdown. Lismore were struggling to keep up with the pace of the game and ever-alert half back Nath Nicholls exploited it with a box kick off the ruck, Jimmy Chester chased hard, Lis-

more’s full back heard footsteps and the intercept was on for a runaway Chester try. Lismore finally opened their account on the back of a penalty. They turned to the strength of their forwards running the ball tight to the ruck. Persistence paid dividends when a prop charged onto a short ball, spun, twisted and reached to find the line. Mullum countered with

Leon, Jimmy P and Jacko punching above their weight with brick-wall tackles. When the ball spilled loosed Nathan Appel swooped like a Bondi seagull, hit the afterburners and scored under the posts. An exhilarating first half ended with Mullum 12 points up. Lismore cranked their intensity after the break. It led to Mullum handling errors

Shand crowd spared Main Arm singers Brian Mollet

The Nick Shand series has been distracting the credulous for the past sixteen years and teams from Main Arm and The Echo have taken part in every season. The Geckos are enjoying a good run currently with their grab-bag of cricketing characters, but although Main Arm have won the series eight times, to call their recent form good would be like calling South Golden Beach well drained. So it was with a slight air of desperation that Main Arm stalwart and skipper Brian won the toss and chose to bat. James and Ali took the new ball and kept things tighter than Shane Watson’s hamstrings early. Mick, Anthony and Dan also raced through tidy spells and the scorebook was accumulating dots like a Seurat canvas. Greg-O and Baz were both run

out trying to pinch singles as the keen Geckos threw themselves around in the field, St Seymour leaping around at cover (although watching him dive is a bit like watching a Californian Redwood tree crash to the ground). Bucko (30) and Bourkey (21) finally liberated the innings, then Joffrey silenced the critics who claimed he put the boundary cones too far out by clearing them with apparent ease. A couple of late tonks from Jase eased the score up to a middling 139. The Geckos’ reply was soon staggering like a backpacker on sangria night as Dan slashed hard at Jase (2–6) in the first over, burning a head-high ball to slip where Bucko proved good enough to hold on. Carl, Simon and Guy all got through as many maidens as a young Mick Jagger and Ross fell trying to up the rate, like Wayne Swan. James joined Adeha at the crease,

started with a few singles, then launched bombs over the boundary with the impunity of an Israeli fighter squadron. This seemed to wake up the sleepy teenager Adeha who suddenly let off a flatulent flurry of fours, both retired with 30 runs but the Geckos still needed to find 40 to win. Simon (14) was solid at one end, dare it be said like a constipated accountant, but around him wickets tumbled. Joff, Bucko, Bourkey and Baz all claimed victims as the old Main Arm buzzards circled for a feed. James and Dan (30) held their nerve to score 22 off the last four overs and take the win with four balls to spare, thus sparing the crowd the annoying Main Arm victory song. Next week a victory to the Swingers of Suffolk over the Left Bankers could deny the Arm any chance of a finals berth.

Junior union thriving in the north Far North Coast Five Far North Coast representative players have been selected to the 2013 NSW Country Rugby under-15s including Finn McElroy from Byron Bay who has been appointed team captain.

Brunswick Valley The Brunswick Valley under-15 rugby team ran out winners 26–12 winners at Lismore on Friday, the highlights were tries to Flynn Brown, Jordon Burton, Finn McElroy and Patrick Jones;

three conversions by Zac Thomas; and a wonderful piece of play against four opponents by Cas Corbett to save a try. The Sticky Fingers man of the match was Jordon Burton.

and poor discipline at the ruck. Careless penalties were crucifying the Mullum momentum and gifting Lismore field position. The gap was closed to five points when a Lismore second rower gathered unopposed at the back of a line out and strolled through for a soft try. A penalty soon after cut the margin to two. Mullum were struggling to gain purposeful possession and needed someone to stand up. The inspiration came from Dion ‘DBoss’ Vogt with a 50-metre chase that forced Lismore to scramble the ball into touch close to their own line. Minutes later from half way Jimmy Chester drew five green jerseys with a power run, then off-loaded to Georgy Andrews to draw the next wave of defence before setting Neon Leon loose on the wing to run through the Lismore full back like a dose of Epsom salts and score his fifth try for the season. When three Shiners broke the line from the restart it looked to be the coffin nailer until a wild pass killed it.

Lismore again built pressure and landed the scorelevelling try and conversion with only minutes to go. From the restart a Mullum infringement had the crowd silent as the ref pointed to the posts. At 24-all Lismore kicked from thirty out near the line, it was sweet off the boot, curling in nicely against the breeze. Enter the God of Moonshine, just as it looked over it caught an upright and Rick Oshayed back into the of play. The fat lady and a hundred fat blokes on the sideline were singing. The draw clinched the Minor Premiership, and celebrations for a brilliant 25th Anniversary dinner began. Congratulations to deserved inductees to Moonshiner Life Membership, Julie Quigley, Glen LeClaire and Matthew Perry. The Shiners have a bye this week, followed by a home game against Ballina. Come finals time Mullum and Lismore will continue their enthralling battle with form guide reading one and half games each in 2013.

Walsh wins wildcard for Tahiti Pro

Lennox surfer Anthony Walsh placed second yesterday in the Air Tahiti Nui Billabong trials behind Tahitian Alain Riou. The second place to Walsh secured him a wildcard into the upcoming Association of Surfing Professionals World Championship Tour event, the Billabong Pro Tahiti, which begins on Thursday. It is the second

time Walsh has been wildcarded into the main event and he is a specialist surfer at the famous Teahupo’o which will make him a formidable opponent for the world’s top surfers. Walsh’s second place win above and deep inside a Teahupo’o monster in 2011 Photo ASP/Steve Robertson.

Choosing your new home KNOW THE RULES First, it helps if you can find out the requirements for homes at your chosen location. You can do this by checking with your builder and with the local council. If you’re buying into an estate there may also be additional requirements made by the developer that you need to follow. These requirements can cover a range of different things including types of building materials, façade style, fences and hot water systems, to name a few. Often these are called ‘design guidelines’ or ‘covenants’ for the estate. CHOOSE THE FLOOR PLAN THAT WORKS FOR YOU Looking at builders’ floor plans is where you can start to compare your ‘must haves’ and ‘wish list’ with what’s on offer. You can make choices based on how many square metres you can get for your money, but smart investors know that there’s much more to a good investment. Think carefully about what you really need. It’s tempting to want more area for your money but bigger isn’t always better you’ll have less garden space and more house to heat, cool, light, clean and furnish. This adds to your costs now and into the future. Good design that doesn’t waste

Choosing a floor plan that faces the right way on your block will make your home more comfortable, and you won’t need to spend as much on heating, cooling and lighting. Here are some tips for positioning your living areas: t*GUIFGSPOUPGZPVSCMPDLGBDFT south, place living areas at the rear of your home – an easy solution! t*GUIFGSPOUPGZPVSCMPDLGBDFT east or west, place living areas at the rear of your home, facing onto the north side of your block. t*GUIFGSPOUPGZPVSCMPDLGBDFT north, try placing your living areas at the front of your home and increasing your setback from the street with a private, spacious front garden.

t*GZPVIBWFBTMPQJOHCMPDL  think about the kind of home that would make the best fit with minimum excavation and drainage costs. Discuss this with your builder and ask them to suggest a suitable home design. t$IFDLXJUIZPVSCVJMEFSUIBU the position of your home will maintain privacy for you and your neighbours. Keep bedrooms away from noisy areas like driveways or neighbours’ living areas. Now is also a good time to think about where you’ll put costsaving features like an outdoor clothesline and water-saving features like a rainwater tank.

WHY NORTH FOR LIVING AREAS? North is the best position for rooms you spend a lot of time in because north-facing rooms get sun for the longest part of the day. They are also the easiest to shade from unwanted sun. In summer when the sun is high, the right-size eaves will shade north-facing rooms, while in winter when the sun is lower, sunlight will come in under the eaves. If it looks like your living areas won’t get good sunlight, ask your builder if you can flip or rotate the plan for better positioning on the site, or make minor modifications to the plan. – From yourhome.gov.au

Backlash We hear there was an interesting bingle in one of the main streets of Mullum last week. A police car ran into the back of another car. The shunted carâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s driver got out, furious, and started going off at the cops in a colourful manner. The drawback to his tirade was that his car was unregistered and his driverâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s licence was expired. Oh dear. Perhaps the magistrate will order a course in self-protective diplomacy.

While on the subject of the thin blue line, we note that the Richmond police local area command posted a photo of a fish on its Facebook page along with this message: â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Around 2.45pm yesterday an unsuspecting driver was at the intersection of River and Kerr Street in Ballina when a fish flew through his driverâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s window and hit him to the head. The fish is believed to

have been thrown from a passing car. At this stage the fish isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t talking so the matter has been suspended.â&#x20AC;&#x2122; One wag subsequently asked if the driver had a flat head. QQQQ

The fate of nudity on Byronâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s beaches always attracts the major news media. Nicole Hashamâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s recent report in SMH, accompanied by a lovely photo by Jeff â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Nature Boyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; Dawson, quotes beach user Wayne Penn as saying authorities wanted to â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;beige the rainbow cultureâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;. Hell, yes, the beiging has been going on for decades, to the point where the Bay could be renamed Byron Beige. But as former long-time councillor and newspaper magnate Ross Tucker once predicted, if you declare a beach nude the perverts soon turn up along with the fun-loving naturists.
