Boomerang takes flight

John Campbell tackles another choc-top – p23

The NSW government’s draft controversial planning reforms were overwhelmingly rejected at the Local Government NSW (LGNSW) 2013 annual conference, held in Sydney last week. It’s the latest thumbs-down for the NSW coalition’s plans, which critics say will strip the rights of communities to reject inappropriate developments. LGNSW is the peak body representing the state’s 152 councils, and Byron Shire councillors Di Woods and Alan Hunter both attended the conference. The conference’s outcome saw LGNSW delegates agree that community participation should be enshrined ‘at all stages of planning’.

Organisers of the inaugural Boomerang Festival of indigenous music and culture held at Tyagarah over the weekend were buoyed by its success and crowd response, vowing it will return. Estimates put crowds at more than 5,000 people for the threeday event. It was an opportunity to engage in music, art, dance, painting, film, discussion and cultural exchanges with first-nation people from around the world, including weaving circles, traditional Maori healing and tea with elders. Festival director Rhoda Roberts said, ‘Boomerang offered a completely unique experience to festival goers.

‘The atmosphere on the festival grounds over the weekend was electric and there was a unanimous view among festival goers, performers and crew that they were participating in something very special – including [former minister] Tony Burke, who described it as an “unforgettable weekend”,’ Ms Roberts said.

Effusive praise Meanwhile promoter Peter Noble was effusive in his praise after the closing ceremony yesterday, saying he was immensely proud to see what it had achieved and wanted Boomerang to be a permanent event on the local festival calendar. ‘I have never felt more pride in

doing an event, ever,’ the promoter of the long-running Bluesfest said. The performance from Elcho Island singer Geoffrey Gurrumul Yunupingu on Saturday night that included a surprise guest appearance from Natalie Pa’apa’a of Blue King Brown was just one highlight. Other standouts included the thought-provoking dialogue with Dr Gondarra, Xavier Rudd and Jeff McMullen and Wantok Sing Sing, while John Williamson and Archie Roach were also big crowd favourites. There were no reports from police of any incidents. Q See more on this story at

Serious flaws They also voted to, ‘Express strong concern about the removal of community consultation from any stage of the planning process and call on the NSW government to ensure all planning considerations are made with infrastructure commitments, for example childcare and transport etc.’ It was also decided to advocate that, ‘Councils are given equal status to the minister for planning and infrastructure in planning decisions,’ and that developments have ‘triple-bottom-line outcomes for planning decisions.’ Meanwhile Nature Conservation Council CEO Pepe Clarke was in Byron Bay last Friday, launching a new report – available at nccnsw. org.au – that he says, ‘exposes serious flaws in the draft Planning Bill 2013.’ He says, ‘Under the new laws,

developers would have new rights to override local plans and challenge council zoning decisions, placing existing environmental protections at risk. In addition, State Environmental Planning Policies (SEPP), which contain protections for sensitive environmental areas including koala habitat and rainforest, will cease to exist under the new planning system. ‘The Independent Commission Against Corruption (ICAC) has raised concerns about the broad, unfettered discretion given to key decision makers, including the minister for planning and the directorgeneral of the Department of Planning and Infrastructure.’ Recently Byron Bay-based NSW coalition MP for local government and the north coast, Don Page, told The Echo he relayed community concerns about the planning overhaul to planning MP Brad Hazzard.

NSW Business Chamber’s input As for input from the NSW Business Chamber: they gave feedback to the Green Paper in December last year. The Chamber said then that ‘at the local level, councillors should still have a role in leading the community in the development of broad planning policies and principles for a local area’, but added that ‘the development of Local Land Use Plans will need to be oversighted by the department of planning… to ensure that they are consistent with subregional, metropolitan and NSW plans and policies.’ The controversial legislation, which so far has gained little to no public support, is due to be debated in parliament next month.

Council scores goal with AFL sign-up A new partnership between AFL Queensland and Byron Shire Council will see the Byron Regional Sport and Cultural Complex become a home to the governing body of Australian Rules football in Queensland. The deal signed last week includes a five-year lease and $80,000 from AFL Queensland for goals and nets for the fields. Mayor Simon Richardson welcomed AFL Queensland CEO Michael Conlan and his team to the BRSCC after they held a two-day conference for AFL Queensland staff. ‘Our region is known for its outdoor sporting lifestyle

and I have no doubt that it will become a strong development ground for a new generation of footballers,’ Cr

Richardson said. ‘The local young AFL supporters I’ve spoken to are pumped. To have a major

sporting code based in our region is fantastic. It’s good for the sport and mentoring of our youth, and hopefully will bring some great spectator games for locals and visitors.’ Mr Conlan said the move would provide great benefits for the local AFL and sports communities. ‘Our investment at BRSCC will provide a top-quality training and football education facility that will greatly enhance our talent and participation programs for residents of both Byron Shire and the northern rivers. Council has been very supportive in recent months, and we look forward to a long and rewarding partnership at BRSCC.’

The Byron Bay Liquor Accord says its members have agreed and will formally vote at next Wednesday’s Accord meeting to continue its current terms for the next six months. According to the group’s chair Hannah Spalding, this will allow a full assessment of the Office of Liquor, Gaming and Racing’s Byron Bay Action Plan, which calls for

town since the inception of the Accord’s terms. ‘It is extremely encouraging to see the impact of the Accord actions showing such positive results.’ Supporting OLGR’s claims is the 2013 March quarterly update of the NSW recorded crime statistics, where Byron Shire (sexual assaults plus non-domestic violence relat-

ed) assaults declined by 11.4 per cent from 2012 to 2013. However, when comparing Byron’s figures to NSW rate of non-domestic violence related assaults per 100,000 population, Byron Shire is the seventh most violent out of NSW’s 152 shires with 2.1 assaults per 100,000, below Moree, Walgett, Bourke, Cobar, Coonamble and Sydney.

Whian protesters accuse Forestry Corp, police of intimidation Melissa Hargraves

Controversial logging and subsequent protests on private property adjacent to Whian Whian forest just west of the Shire escalated last week after claims that loggers assaulted protesters. Meanwhile Lismore police stood guard over the operation and arrested one man for trespassing. Despite locals claiming the area is habitat for endangered species including koalas, the state’s environment watchdog, the Environment Protection Authority (EPA), has given the operation the green light. Police liaison officer for the Whian Whian action, Sue James, told The Echo the man

who was arrested lives in the surrounding community and the property being logged directly affects all of the surrounding areas. ‘These operations are pushing neighbours to the brink. Our waterways, which are home to many creatures including platypus, are muddied. Neighbours have experienced provocative actions from the loggers.’ After police took the arrested man away, Ms James said she was unable to communicate with police. ‘They refused to give me any information at all… So at almost midnight he arrived back at the community in an emotional state as the police would not let him make a call for someone to collect him.’

New CSG laws condemned Luis Feliu

Coal seam gas (CSG) exclusion zones for existing residential areas and villages across NSW came into force last week, but CSG free campaigners say the zones don’t go far enough. The exclusion zones prohibit new CSG exploration and development within a two-kilometre buffer, with proposals now on display to include future major residential development in Lismore and Ballina shires (at Goonellabah and Cumbalum). Lock the Gate Alliance says the ‘devil is in the detail,’ which has yet to be released. Community opposition to CSG exploration and mining in the northern rivers is set to

continue, given that larger-lot rural residential areas (zoned R5 which range in size from 4,000sq metres up to 2.5 hectares) are not included in the buffer zones. The northern rivers has thousands of these smaller lifestyle or hobby-farm sized rural lots.

The art of recycling paper bags Mullumbimby artisan collective, Art Depot 55, wants you to bring in your used paper bags for them to reuse in their store. There is also an extra incentive: every person who drops one off will go into a draw to win one of three $50 vouchers to spend at Art Depot 55. The collective says it wants to become the go-to place for people to take used paper shopping bags for reuse. ‘We want your clean, used paper bags to reuse in our shop,’ says Lally Marshall of Lally & Me repurposed jewellery. ‘We need to move away from anything that is developed with a one-time use in mind.’

Mum and school develop comms app pers went missing and caused some last-minute problem. ‘From minor hassles like desperately trying to hunt down the newsletter only to find it in the bottom of my daughter’s school bag covered in squashed grapes and yoghurt, to real inconveniences like driving across the Shire to attend a school function only to find it’s been cancelled or moved. App inventor Melissa Bridson. Photo Jeff Dawson Simeon Michaels

A Suffolk Park-based designer and single parent has collaborated with St Finbarr’s Primary School to produce a smartphone app that keeps parents connected with schools. It’s a locally developed invention that is set to improve communication between education institutions and parents across the nation. School Stream’s co-inventor Melissa Bridson told The Echo, ‘The inspiration came from my own frustrations with the communication process of passing papers from student to parent and the number of times those pa-

St Finbarr’s involved ‘At other times access to instant information was more vital and I needed it outside of school hours, like whether to put my daughter on the school bus or keep her home due to local flooding. ‘It was not the fault of the school – their communication systems are outdated and staff are busy. I realised that schools needed a better way to communicate, preferably instantly, with their school community,’ says Ms Bridson. St Finbarr’s Primary School has been extensively involved in the trials, and principal John Wilson says parents have responded positively. ‘We established a web-

site at the same time, and any update to the website is streamed live to the app. We can let parents know their kids are running late after an excursion and promote activities and learning in a manner that’s timely and digestible. ‘We’re up to about onethird of parents now and I think we’ll get to 75 per cent quickly.’ Wilson believes the technology has enormous potential. ‘In the future, we could be streaming videos of classroom activities to parents, or sending online homework projects,’ he said.

‘Meanwhile, we also need to teach kids how to keep a balance with technology instead of spending their lives in front of a screen.’ School Stream is currently being integrated into public and private school communities from Tweed Heads to Melbourne. ‘The cost averages $3 per student per annum, and the time savings for parents and teachers are enormous,’ says Ms Bridson. Information and a free trial of the app is available at www.schoolstream.com.au.

This is the story of an extraordinary stroke of luck. You could call it ‘life-changing’

Free market suits the US Those looking for reasons not to be cheerful could turn to the recent Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation (APEC) gathering of representatives from the US and South Pacific countries, held last week in Bali. A focal point was the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP), a free-trade agreement pushed by the US that suspiciously gets little to no mainstream media attention. While small and medium-sized businesses are spruiked as potential winners if Apart from terrorist drone international trade were expanded, critics strikes on those unable to defend themselves, Obama wants have pointed out a much different agenda. to lock Pacific countries into Director of Public Citizen’s Global Trade Watch, Lori Wallach, told www.democracyhardline trade agreements. Image from themetapicture.com. now.org, ‘The agreement has 29 chapters, and only five of them have to do with trade. The other 24 chapters either handcuff our domestic governments, limiting food safety, environmental standards, financial regulation, energy and climate policy, or establish new powers for corporations.’ And many agree; a swag of lawyers and academics have signed an open letter to negotiators of the TPP trade talks. As reported on www.nzherald.co.nz in May, the letter claims that before 1999, only 69 dispute cases between countries and corporations had been launched. ‘Today,’ the letter reads, ‘there are 370-plus such cases underway, an increase of 436 per cent.’ They say most cases relate to ‘challenges to governments’ natural resource and environmental policies, not to traditional expropriations.’ And Lock the Gate president Drew Hutton concurred, saying last week it would potentially make it impossible for our government ‘to place environmental and public health restrictions on some of the highest-impact developments in Australia, including coal and coal seam gas mining.’ It’s easy to paint the newly Toned Abbs government as pursuing a ‘pants-down-to-corporations’ foreign policy, but given the secrecy of our government and the US, how are we to know? For what little our federal government is prepared to say on this, see www.dfat.gov.au/fta/tpp. Hans Lovejoy, editor

A

n historic moment is approaching for Labor Party members: within the next week or so they will, for the first time, cast a vote which will give them a say in the election of their leader. Antony Albanese and Bill Shorten have been making their pitches around the country, including three full-scale debates in which it has become obvious that they agree with each other about almost everything, including, crucially, the need to continue the reform process within the party structure. But at the margins a few key differences have emerged, the most interesting being the proposal by Shorten, nominally the candidate from the right, to extend Labor’s quota system to embrace not only women but also Aborigines and gays. Shorten’s supporter and ally, Joe de Bruyn, warlord of the Shop Assistants Union and a vigorous opponent of gay marriage (or indeed gay rights of any kind), responded immediately that he was certain his friend was just telling his audience what they wanted to hear – he didn’t really mean it. And it is almost tempting to believe that he is right, because if Shorten was fair dinkum, then he totally misunderstands the nature and purpose of representative democracy. We elect our members to represent us, not to resemble us as closely as possible; Shorten sits in the House of Representatives, not the House of Statistical Archetypes.

then we should and do grant them a certain amount of leeway; as Edmund Burke put it back in 1774, ‘Your representative owes you not his industry only, but his judgement; and he betrays you instead of serving you if he sacrifices it to your opinion.’ Election by quota instead of merit can only lead to government in favour of interest groups at the expense of the nation as a whole.

Then there is age: the current lot are overwhelmingly between forty and sixty-five years old. Should there be seats reserved for our real seniors and our young? Should we have rules to ensure that ethnic and religious membership reflects that of the general population? And there is that oppressed minority of which both Tony Abbott and I are members, the cackyhanders. We demand a rightful share of places for southpaws and mollydookers. Not to mention redheads, bicyclists and absinthe drinkers. Let’s face it, quotas are not the answer. And in the case of the Australian Labor Party, there is a more urgent reason to reject them.

a policy of trying to confine its appeal to chosen groups of the electorate rather than reaching out to the voters as a whole, and it just hasn’t worked. Labor’s primary vote fell to just 33 per cent at the last election, its lowest ebb since either 1931 or 1903, depending on how you measure it, and at this level the party cannot hope to remain relevant – it will fade away to a rump representing a handful of coteries and ignored by the majority. At its best, Labor has always been a party of mass appeal, a party which can bring the country together. When it

starts cultivating certain groups at the expense of others, it is inevitably seen to be exclusive rather than inclusive, and those who feel rejected will reject it in return. It is one thing to acknowledge that there are identifiable sections of society which are unfairly disadvantaged and strive to remedy the injustice; but this can’t be done by privileging them above everyone else. To be fair, I don’t think that this was really Shorten’s intention, but if he really believes quotas are a good idea, it must cast serious doubt upon his political judgment. Apart from that, as they say, there is not much dispute between the two candidates. Albanese is rather more positive than Shorten about Labor’s record over the last three years, which will please the faithful but is unlikely to be a vote winner in the wider electorate; Shorten is likely to be less combative in

opposition than Albanese, and has hinted that he is inclined to allow Tony Abbott’s controversial paid parental leave scheme to pass without opposition. Albanese’s emphasis will probably be on the big picture, especially on building infrastructure, while Shorten is more likely to concentrate on bread-and-butter issues like domestic violence. And while Shorten is carrying more baggage than Albanese, he may have broader appeal. Both are good communicators and both have signalled their unswerving aim to lead Labor to victory at the next election. But history is against them. The last party leader to move straight from an electoral defeat back into government was Andrew Fisher in 1910. Since then the pattern has been for the opposition to go through at least one and more often two leadership changes before regaining the treasury benches. Fortunately the caucus is not short of potential contenders; the stand-in leader, Chris Bowen, has already shown his quality, and behind him Tony Burke, Jason Clare and Tanya Plibersek are all proven performers. Others will no doubt emerge in the months ahead. There are solid foundations to build on. But they will be of no use if the basics are ignored. Labor needs to expand both its base and its support, and the way to do this is through continuing to reform is internal structure and become more cognisant and inclusive of the changed Australian demographic. Enlargers, not straiteners. Thought bubbles like quotas are not the way to go. Q See Mungo’s video at

In the teeth of the fluoride debate Q A few years ago I was chosen as the public representative to address Byron Council, Lismore Council and Rous County Council on the dangers of fluoridation. Today, I can’t even get a letter to the editor published on the topic. While Israel ends 15 years of fluoridation, with its high court accepting that fluoridated water is now shown to lower human intelligence, local councils, being unaware of this fact, decide to fluoridate. Quote from Harvard School of Public Health: ‘children in high-fluoride areas had significantly lower IQ scores than those who lived in low-fluoride areas’ (http:// bit.ly/fluneuro).

Council holds many workshops for councillors and staff to gather information to take to a meeting. This is one of those workshops and it is to properly inform councillors of the pros and cons of adding fluoride to our water. Following on from the information provided, councillors will then decide whether the issue of fluoride will be taken to a meeting of council to debate. The language being used in the advertisements and letters is misleading and inappropriate, and only serves to cause concerns in the community. This council and group of councillors is working extremely well together, and I would hate to see us go back to go out and enjoy a nice meal, and continue their evenings socialising. They can and will go elsewhere if they feel they are being treated like children. Likewise, the backpacker market is attracted to Byron for various reasons, including the vibrant night life.

leading public health agency, the Center for Disease Control (CDC), has hailed the fluoridation of water as one of the ten great public health achievements of the 20th century. As the CDC states, ‘Community water fluoridation is a widely accepted practice for preventing and controlling tooth decay.’ Given this, I find it extraordinary that our local government representatives are even questioning the merits of whether or not Byron Shire’s water supply should be fluoridated because of concerns about a possible angry community backlash. Should we let the fears of the ill-informed determine public health policy? To me it’s the same lack of rational of the tourist market will ripple through our community. As a restaurant owner (that closes well before 12) I can confirm that there is a direct correlation between a restaurant’s sales and hours worked.

Byron Shire Councillors will be discussing the fluoridation of public water supplies in closed session in late October. This issue will directly impact every member of the community; if approved fluoridated water will be in every home, school, business: all properties on town water in our community.

Join a critical conversation @ Byron Theatre 6.30 pm Wednesday 16th October, 2013 Chaired by journalist and broadcaster Mick O’Regan Guest speakers: Dr Ros Irwin, Richard Staples, Merilyn Haines. Supporters of fluoridation say: It prevents tooth decay; promotes health for all community members even the disadvantaged and most vulnerable; it is a fiscally responsible action – avoiding costly dental work by using an inexpensive treatment; there is no evidence that it is harmful to health and the environment. Those against fluoridation say: Valid science indicates that fluoride even at relatively low dosages can cause serious harm, including thyroid disease, neurological disorders and bone damage; it is irresponsible and unethical to medicate whole communities without their consent with a dose that cannot be controlled.

thinking that perpetuates such alarmingly high numbers of unimmunised children in our shire. My father is a dentist and spent half of his working life in the UK and half in Australia. He said the difference in the levels of tooth decay between his two sets of patients was dramatic and the reason was that his patients in Sydney had all drunk fluoridated water. My father is so concerned about the lack of fluoride and the impact that this will have on my six-year-old daughter’s growing teeth that he’s arranged for a friend from NZ to send over fluoride tablets for her to take every day because it’s no longer possible to buy them over the counter in Australian pharmacies.

Diving in among the Mullum microwaves Q The proposer of town-wide wi-fi for Mullum was asked repeatedly, before and during the ‘community consultation’ meeting, to provide sufficient details to back up his claim of lower net radiation. This did not eventuate, and was one of the reasons for lack of acceptance on the night. The touted infrastructure sharing agreement with NBN Co was similarly unsupported. His letter to The Echo implied the meeting (he organised) was not representative. This overlooks the fact that he had months to mobilise his own supporters. Mentioning the ‘Russian’

safety limit is a furphy. Routers operate well below that anyway. The relevant issue is that peer-reviewed science routinely shows adverse biological and health effects at far lower levels. There is no guarantee current wi-fi users will want to buy into his proprietary, adsponsored agenda. It is also technically unfeasible to adequately service the existing area with fewer routers without boosting their power output. What we could wind up with is a parallel network that has a sequestered customer base, helps sell computers, and spews higher levels of

Fix the bike tracks A recent Backlash item reported on an outbreak of bikes without lights. This certainly is, as mentioned, ‘plain fucking stupid’. However, there are a number of aspects to this issue that require consideration. Lights and reflectors, horns or bells and, at least, one working brake, are all legal requirements for bicycles in NSW. See RTA rules and regs. I have never seen any attempt at enforcing any of these. I have been cycling since God was a lad and in all parts of the world. Nowhere have I felt so vulnerable on roads or cycle tracks as I have in Byron recently. An increasing number of visitors are using bikes at night. Presumably hired, borrowed or stolen. At best, most have only one of the requisite safety items and, somewhat surprisingly, occasionally none. Also it is apparent that North Coast news daily: www.echonetdaily.net.au

Let’s not promote the positive of a responsible approach to reducing the evil wi-fi that permeates our town already; instead how about we crucify those who not only grew up here but love this town and only have the best intentions at heart. The hatred in the room that night made me sick! It surprises me further that the people opposed to a measure of wi-fi control will happily sit by and let the standard stay the same. Routers, tablets and phones already blanket the town at a level 100 times more powerful than the proposed idea of a regulated service.

These same naysayers took the opportunity to rubbish a panel of amazing people who gave their time to be there and organise a public consultation. Tall poppy syndrome is something Australia is known for, and it is such a shame for Mullum. If a community consultation is held ever again for anything, I hope the audience shows some respect and kindness to those involved. To the organisers: good luck, carry on and thank you for bothering to put your necks on the line and consult the sheeple. Ash Stennett Mullumbimby

many have not ridden before. Hence, the cycle paths of Byron are now considerably more dangerous than the roads. Especially when one considers that they are poorly lit (or not at all), often covered in broken glass and, as is the case of the Shirley Lane cycle path, an obstacle course of waist-high metal barriers. These were no doubt erected to inhibit motor traffic but at night they can be almost lethal for cyclists. I know of two such accidents. A letter twelve months ago to the Byron Council works department concerning this particular problem elicited nothing. So I am forced to use the roads at night and run the gauntlet of hoons throwing missiles from cars, drivers opening car doors, drunks and so on. I urge Council to make all the cycle tracks biker friendly (Pythonesque really innit?), bike hirers to ensure the bikes comply with the law, and some form of education for hirees.

Reassembling sustainability in the cultural dimension in Mullum David Rousell

W

e’re ready to engage in some serious ecological thinking here in Mullum, and I’m excited. By thinking I mean praxis: thinking in action, like the words I’m thinking and writing right now. Ecological thinking, then, involves a praxis that allows us to experience the interconnections between all things, both known and unknown. The party has already started – let’s join in.

Future world Many of us are engaging in some discussion around sustainability in Mullum. Do we know what sustainability is? Not yet, and we shouldn’t because it’s not defined. Even back in 1996, there were at least 300 distinct definitions of the term. So it’s up to us to creatively engage with this sustainability and use it to help imagine our future world. Ambiguity is a strength, rather than a weakness of the term. The future’s uncertain, right? The original three-pillar model for sustainability back in 1987 had ‘The World’ on top supported by ‘Economic’, ‘Social’ and ‘Environmental’. But people quickly realised several things (it took some years actually): (1) socioeconomic justice and environmental justice are often mutually exclusive; (2) we needed a ‘cultural’ pillar to preserve cultural traditions

and knowledge, a kind of anti-globalisation prophylactic. By the 90s we had four pillars, and the model resembled the Parthenon – very Euclidian. But we still had this problem of how to define these pillars, let alone the complex relationships between them. Should they receive equal parts on some metaphysical scale, as an alchemical recipe for a sustainable future? And what about the fact that we don’t even know where the environment ends and the social begins? Does either one even exist anymore? Is it ecologically justified to bring extinct species back using their DNA? The Parthenon starts to crumble, and ecological thinking begins. You can’t break an omelet without hatching a few eggs. It’s a messy process that approaches steeped in economic rationalism and managerialism fail to fully understand. Art and philosophy are quite helpful here.

So now we have some new models, thanks to UNESCO and some wily (mostly European) thinkers. Rather than a cultural pillar based on preserving traditions, we now have a cultural dimension that basically runs the show from underneath.

Exchanges In this model, the cultural dimension determines to what extent we lean towards economics (exchange) versus ecology (relation) within a particular collective, or ecosystem, of humans and nonhumans. The cultural dimension includes education, the arts, media and politics, and informs what kinds of economic exchanges we might be engaging in, eg money, vegetables, knowledge or smiles. It also influences the ecological interconnections we make between the legions of humans and non-humans we find in our collectives. Both ‘economics’ and ‘ecology’

come from the Greek word oikos, meaning household. So this is about everyday cultural exchanges and relationships, not just abstract concepts. ‘Sustain’ comes from the Latin tenere (to hold). Perhaps the idea is to hold the tension between contradiction and paradox, between past, present, and future, between the local and the global. In this context, sustainability means thinking and acting collectively within open learning networks. Call it systems thinking, complexity thinking, futures thinking or ecological thinking. The point is that it’s non-linear, relational, creative and reflexive left and right brain crossfire between minds, across scales of time and space. In psychological terms, this is known as situated cognition, situated learning, situated creativity. Situated in this sense does not mean located in one place, but rather distributed across networked communities of practice. So let’s imagine it’s 2025 and we’re reading the 2013 chapter of the open-source Book of Mullum on some kind of holographic, multisensory device. What do we see ourselves doing now? Q David Rousell is a Mullumbased artist, teacher and researcher. He is currently undertaking a PhD in art, education and sustainability within the School of Education at Southern Cross University.

Learn about retrofitting Over the months of October and November, the Green Building Centre, pictured, is holding a series of lunchtime talks by local experts on retrofitting for low-energy living. â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Retrofitting is the theme,â&#x20AC;&#x2122; says Alice Moffett, the centreâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s program coordinator. â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;We were inspired by the Zero Carbon Buildings Plan recently released by Beyond Zero Emissions. â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;It shows how Australians could halve their energy consumption by retrofitting existing buildings.â&#x20AC;&#x2122; Alice says retrofitting is â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;basically, modifications to existing buildings to make them more energy efficient and net generators of their own clean power, hot water and cool airâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;. â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;So weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve collected together a number of local speakers and businesses that can show people how to do this.

NAHKO & MEDICINE FOR THE PEOPLE DAZZLED ALL ON THEIR INAUGURAL TOUR OF AUSTRALIA IN FEBRUARY, AND HAVE JUST FINISHED A USA AND ACROSSAUSTRALIA TOUR OPENING FOR XAVIER RUDD! OWING TO POPULAR DEMAND, THEYâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;LL PERFORM ONE SHOW ONLY ON THURSDAY NIGHT, LAUNCHING THEIR NEW CD DARK AS NIGHT, AND PLAYING THEIR ANTHEMIC HITS, WITH A LITTLE HELP FROM SOME TALENTED LOCAL FRIENDS. A mix of Apache, Puerto Rican and Filipino heritage, Nahkoâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s journey to self expression and healing through music was a long and winding road. With training in classical piano, and a gift for performance and connection, Nahkoâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s built a reputation in the USA, Canada and Europe for intensely inspiring, passionate shows of original music with something to say. Donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t miss this only chance to see their full show before they leave the Antipodes! Seven spoke with Nahko on the eve of his show. You are a unique artist â&#x20AC;&#x201C; your approach isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t conventional. How hard has this made it to break the mainstream industry? Not very hard at all, apparently. I never set out to break through, but with the honesty and rawness in these stories, and in how we/I present them, it made it a natural thing for the songs to travel and create the connections needed to move deeper into the thick of it. Do you actually want to break into the mainstream or is there a story to be told on the fringe? Rebel music will always be rebel music wherever it travels; redemption songs will always go farther than weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll see; beyond time and space and dreams. Think the â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;mainstreamâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; will break us, haha. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s going to get picked up and work its magic â&#x20AC;&#x201C; itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s like a secret weapon, yâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;know, catchy tunes that are actually teaching you something and opening something â&#x20AC;&#x201C; youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re going to hear it â&#x20AC;&#x201C; itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s

Music for the People going to find you â&#x20AC;&#x201C; and all of a sudden youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re into it... haha! There is something to be said for independent artists that speak strong words of shifting and idealisms. We canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t all be silenced. What are the artistic values that you hold most strongly? The power of poetry. The language of music. What would you say is the essence of a Nahko show? High vibes. True connection. Massive energy. Crazy dance moves. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s like a revival meeting. Your band is called Medicine for the People. Is that how you perceive your music, as a kind of medicine? Can you elaborate a little? Our ancestors used to pray and chant. I think in this new way weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re reminding each other that we have to combine the old ways with new

ones. Our band name is a great example of what our intention is: walk with integrity... know itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s okay to make mistakes... but learn from them... use your words. Be your poetry. Yeah, so medicine is healing no matter how you look at it. I know Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve been â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;healedâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; by the songs, poetry, and music... so it has become no surprise to me that others have as well. What are the values or understandings that you think the general community has lost sight of? Personal power. The ability to make your dreams realities. What is actually at stake. Blind to destruction, eyes wide open to greed and desire. There is a strong sense of creation, and I guess â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Godâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; in your music â&#x20AC;&#x201C; is it

possible to find a place for this in a world of fractured belief? Many of us have, for a long time. Yes, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s possible. You decide your connection with â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;godâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;, â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;creatorâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;, â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;great spiritâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; â&#x20AC;&#x201C; for many of us structured spiritual ways of devotion are not our thing â&#x20AC;&#x201C; we create our own prayers, our own meditations, our own ways of worship â&#x20AC;&#x201C; and much of it stems from learning and revering many walks of spirituality.   What should we expect for your live show here in Byron Shire? A lot of excitement, high energy, positive prayers... big open arms of love! Tickets: $25 in advance @ www. spiritfestival.com.au/nahko or $30 at the door. Show starts: 8pm. www.nahko.com

See Mandy live at www.echonetdaily.net.au TITTY BARS SUCK It would appear that Byron is to have its very first Titty Bar. For those of you still existing in the old Byron paradigm where that means a group of breast-feeding mothers having a coffee while at the same time casually offering their milk-filled mammaries to infants and the unimmunised, then I need to inform you that we have shifted to a more – how should I say it – Gold Coast paradigm. A titty bar is a place where grownup ladies, well, girls who’ve turned 18 or have had plastic surgery, serve beer to men, with their tops off. It’s a strange concept. From a workplace-safety point of view I don’t know how they get away with it. You can’t cross the road these days as a council employee without a hi-vis vest. How do titty bars escape the scrutiny of the occupational health and safety officers? I suppose they’re in there doing their workplace assessments with giant erections going ‘seems harmless enough’. If you were running a ‘shoe free’ bar you’d be closed down because of the possible safety risk for staff. I’m talking glass cuts or stubbed toes. Although naked feet seem inconsequential when compared to your puppies. People see your feet but

they don’t suddenly think of having intercourse with you. But when you’ve just pulled a bloke a beer and your curved breasts with their hard erect nipples have bounced in his face, chances are you’ve put yourself pretty well in the picture of his private sexual fantasy. I don’t know how I’d feel pulling beers in a room full of men with hardons. I suppose on the upside you never have to worry about getting your uniform dry before you start work. But I wonder what it feels like, to be knowingly objectified in the service industry. Being a bar worker has to be tough enough, without showing your pink bits. What if your nipple gets stuck on the beer tap? What happens in winter? Those girls are going to need to lather themselves in Vicks Vaporub. I think the sexual thrill of seeing a nice pair of Brad Pitts is rather negated when they smell like your grandma. Titty bars perpetuate the myth that the only kind of yingyangs that have value are big round fake ones. If you are going to open a titty bar then start employing some older women. Women with tits down to their waists. Employ flat-chested women. Women with inverted nipples. Breast-feeding mums with leaky milk pillows. Or women who’ve had a mastectomy and only have one. Celebrate real boobs. The kind of boobs they go for in those kinds of places don’t actually exist. They’ve generally been created by men in blue masks in surgery. Personally I’ve never really seen the relationship between boobies and beer. I’ve also never seen the attraction of a wet t-shirt competition. As a woman I find it offensive that our worth is measured by the merit of our mammaries. If it isn’t

From soul-stirring gypsy songs and heartmelting melodies to sublime grooves and quirky beats to shake your hips to, this is a night not to miss! Friday at Durrumbul Hall. From 6pm. $20.

a pure example of unevolved caveman sexism, then why don’t they have wet jock competitions? Why don’t men walk around on stage while women throw buckets of water on their genitals so we can cheer and applaud the wet fabric clinging to their shrinking and terrified manhood? Because it’s degrading, and no man in his right mind would allow himself to be humiliated. So why is it okay for women? And why do women think it’s okay for women? I am all about changing the dominant paradigm, and okay, so I accept that the council is powerless to close a titty bar. So I am putting in a DA to open my own facility for women. It’s called a bottomless cafe. All the wait staff are men, wearing t-shirt and shoes but no pants. It’s bottomless. It’s all about us girls getting to see some quality naked hairy arse and giant dangling scrotum. Of course the penis will be there, shrivelled in fear, but let’s face it, it’s those round furry balls we’re after.

I mean, what girl doesn’t want her teabag jingled the oldfashioned way?

If it doesn’t, then men should complain of discrimination. Surely they have the right to be degraded and objectified, just like we do.

Diamonds for the Little Stevies play at and you can do these circuits for two or three months at a time. Here we just have our major festivals such as Woodford and Port Fairy and a few smaller ones in between. That’s why it’s so great to have festivals such as Mullum because it gets folk music No longer with MGM, Little Stevies have decided to take the to a wider audience. Sometimes you do feel a bit daggy doing the independent route, releasing their third album Diamonds For folk circuit here!’ Your Tea just last week. Recorded, rather modestly, in Billy’s home For Beth it’s about redefining what it means to be part of a broader studio… while the baby slept. Her sister Beth talked to The Echo ‘folk’ community. about the journey thus far for this sister act. ‘In a really simple way, it’s storytelling songs. Folk is about creating ‘About 18 months ago my sister had a baby, and this was when songs that tell a deep story. All my favourite folky artists are we got back from a big Canadian tour, at which point Robin, who storytellers.’ we started the band with, decided he wanted to move on to And story is what Beth and Billy have told on Diamonds For Your concentrate on his film work as it was his first passion. I took the opportunity to do my Masters; it was a bit of a tiny moment where Tea. it could have all fallen apart – we could have just called it quits for ‘There are 12 tracks. A lot of them are autobiographical. I am all into a while. I think it is okay to take breaks; being a musician can’t be over-sharing. I guess a lot of the songs are a reflection about what your number-one priority all the time. You really have to have other has been happening. I am growing up! The title track is one Bill things too that you put your life into.’ wrote and it’s about becoming a new mother and the terror and So the girls set about constructing a recording studio in Billy’s back the fear and the great stuff.

Put on your ruby slippers.. PUTTING ON THE RUBY SLIPPERS AND STEPPING INTO DOROTHY’S FOR AN ADAPTATION OF THE WIZARD OF OZ HAS BEEN A CHALLENGING EXPERIENCE FOR ACTOR CAROLINE DUNPHY. Seven speaks with her about this bold

and collaborative take on a classic by La Boite Theatre Company, Brisbane Festival, The Danger Ensemble and NORPA. Caroline, what are the challenges playing such an iconic character as Dorothy? The first one is probably the reference to Judy Garland’s beautiful interpretation in the film version of Oz. In our production, however, we are not your usual casting choices so that gave me a great freedom actually and allowed me to define Dorothy from my own sources in the process, for example her relationship with our character, her mother, Judy G (Judy Goddammit). Strangely Dorothy is not so much seen as the lead but more the centre, the heart of the work, so once I understood this, I could anchor myself in the process a little better against chaotic elements at play. What new information or influences did you want to bring to the role? Circumstantially that she is the product of her mother’s insecurities and from that she gets dressed to extreme pageant levels. Dorothy is a young woman who is capable of being a strategic game player but for a huge heartfelt cause. I wanted Dorothy to really have to fight for her cause and in a strange fashion negotiate with / manipulate her mother in order for her to see what is really ‘real’. She is definitely ‘the adult’ in the mother-daughter relationship. Why do you think the Dorothy figure has been so culturally resonant? Do you think she still has some relevance? At the end of the day, there’s nothing quite like the innocence and loyalty of a child and what ‘home’ and ‘friends’ mean to them. Despite their incredible imaginations, children are reality at its finest. And what is her relationship with Tin Man, The Lion and the Scarecrow? Many things, but there is a sense that she has – or we have – met them before. In our production, they have a mature base of going beyond caricature waiting to be discovered, alliances that have chosen to execute a plan led by Dorothy. As I see it, it’s a mix of adult businesslike strategy but led through the eyes of a child that honestly sees what needs to be done in terms of Judy G and the adult world, and with the innocence of true, imaginative child’s play. Tin Man, Scarecrow and Lion are very strong with their involvement of their part in this mission. In my mind, they for me are true activists or children that have in their mind that this is their ‘grown up’ mission. What about her relationship with the Wizard? I guess this is where it’s at, so to speak. Dorothy wants her mother to see the reality beyond the Emerald City and the facade of the Great Oz

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

(The Wizard). So in a less obvious way there is a strong relationship that is, in fact, more subliminal in our production. Dorothy knows but never actually comes in contact with Oz in the flesh. They both exist, however, either side of Judy G closing in on her. Can you tell me how the company you are working with has tried to contemporise The Wizard of Oz? Firstly through the story itself as a new theatre work in collaboration with award-winning playwright Maxine Mellor. It’s the Wizard of Oz in part as most know it, but inside another great story. The Wizard of Oz exists for a greater cause involving another character, Judy G. Judy G was devised and initiated in the development process from the actress herself. So in saying this, we the actors greatly influenced the roles we took. We in a sense wrote the ideas in the creative development process. Also the ideas and the writing (through many drafts) were a major influence on varying playing styles in the production. We move through twists and turns of heightened realism, pantomime etc. It was such an exciting feeling when I first saw this potential in the writing as well as knowing The Danger Ensemble’s vision as theatremakers. I have worked with The Danger Ensemble before, and know they are at the forefront of contemporary theatre; I’m a firm believer in the deconstructive quality in their work and how they move stylistically and visually through text. What should theatre audiences be expecting? Our big one is certainly NOT the film, remembering our challenge was to develop our production from the novel/novels by Frank Braum, which are very different. An exhilarating and unpredictable night in the theatre inspired by all the colourful imaginings of a child’s mind. A simple heartfelt story that has a very big message about ‘living in a fantasy’… And the rest is in your own imagination really. Friday and Saturday at Lismore City Hall from 7.30pm. Tickets Adult $47 | Senior $42 | Concession $38 | U-18 $20 Patron advice: Recommended for ages 16+. Coarse language, sexual references, adult themes, strobe lighting.

s r a t S WITH LILITH This week unconventional Uranus explores new ways of balancing the perennially vexing male/female, work/ play, trad/mod polarities of our existence…

E ARIES: Everything you do or say right now has consequences and repercussions, so be on your best behaviour: patient, reserved, discreet with sensitive information. Before you make a move ask yourself is it in everyone’s best interests. In the midst of all this restraint, there’s still major fun available. F TAURUS: When midweek Venus enters your house of intimacy, expect some severance of worn-out connections or over-stretched friendships. If honest discussion’s possible, workable new terms could be negotiated. If it isn’t, there’s little use pining for yesterday’s good times or trying to recover what once was. G GEMINI: With Venus shimmying into your opposite number on the astro-wheel, which is also your partnership zone, many Geminis hear the call of the wild. But recklessness isn’t recommended this week, so go ahead – be adventurous, but steer clear of chancy characters, edgy encounters or risky business. H CANCER: Both camaraderie and friendship letdowns feature in this week’s existential mix. Don’t despair if a cherished plan has to be abandoned. Do be advised that evolutionary upgrades rejigging everyone’s operating systems make it hard to establish what version they’re currently running on. The same’s true for you.

20 October 8, 2013 The Byron Shire Echo

I LEO: Venus ensures you’re even hotter than usual during the next few weeks. But something you thought you knew and understood – a philosophy, system, group, friend, family dynamic – could surprise you. If this bursts your comfort bubble, perhaps it has something to teach you – something worth observing and learning? J  VIRGO: Venus in peripatetic Sagittarius is lively and entertaining, but augurs an edgy week for finances. Your ruler Mercury presently digs deep for answers, making communication both exhilarating and tricky – as in deciding whether to speak up or stay silent. Fun side? Spontaneous opportunities abound for exploring new connections. K LIBRA: A week of creative breakthroughs, rewarding achievements, farewells and celebrations as you move to a new level in your personal life. Shifting social alliances stimulate the urge to eliminate nonessentials and prioritise where, what and how you want to invest your energy for the coming year. L SCORPIO: This week’s increased sensitivity and heightened emotions could misread motives and draw conclusions that leave you disappointed, distrustful and dissatisfied. Replaying obsessive mind tapes is majorly unproductive, so do your best to resolve differences. If you can’t, step back and let time do it for you.

M S AGITTARIUS: Midweek moon and Venus prancing into Sagittarius signify it’s time for a makeover – a new look, style, attitude. Archers are blessed with big vision, and this week comes stocked with opportunities to finally free yourself from a cumbersome back-story by tapping into a deeper truth. N CAPRICORN: This style-obsessed week has a sensitive underbelly, with plenty going on in the emotional zone to counterbalance mental activity with depth experiences: intense feelings, realisations and, if you’re very lucky, the odd epiphany – which could come in really handy with relationships in the hot seat. O AQUARIUS: This week’s crosscurrents pit highmaintenance relationships against influential new connections. So focus on positive directions for your urge to stir things up, which right now could provoke more trouble than you need. Watch what you say in private; if it becomes public your credibility may suffer. P P ISCES: This week’s astral aspects ask you to assess your current situation objectively. Emotional reactivity runs a fault line through present circumstances, so take inflated guesstimates with a grain of salt and try not to overstep boundaries. Less is definitely better, unless you’re talking caution and restraint.

colour and uncompromising sentiment employed in their honest display both probes and stimulates many aspects of being. Says Robert Bleakley, ‘Again, I stand in awe before works which charm, tantalise and beguile me. I heartily recommend this exhibition and encourage people to give themselves the treat of surprise for I am confident that no-one who sees this incredible body of work will be unaffected by it and joy is likely to be the prevailing sentiment.’

Cinema Review Cinema Review Cinema Review Gravity It’s an age since I’ve seen a movie as different as this. Longer since I’ve seen one that, if only briefly, helped me look at the world through clearer eyes. Mexican filmmaker Alfonso Cuarón already has a distinguished CV (including a ‘Harry Potter’), but with a script co-written by son Jonás, he gives the impression here that he is fulfilling a personal ambition. Naysayers might argue that it is merely another tale of triumphalism against the odds… but sometimes our voguish cynicism can

be our own worst enemy. The (courageously) longheld opening shot sets a spellbinding tone. A curved segment of blue-shrouded Earth covers part of the screen, the rest is the black silence of weightless space. The vacuum is punctuated by the banter of US astronauts working to repair damage to one of the countless telecommunications nodules that orbit the planet. Ryan (Sandra Bullock) is a novice, but Matt (George Clooney) is an old hand. Gradually they come into view and just as their mission

seems as banal as taking out the wheelie-bin, Ground Control (voiced by Ed Harris in a nod to Ron Howard’s Apollo 13) commands ‘abort!’ A distant explosion has sent debris hurtling their way. Irreparable damage is done to their base, so they must travel across space to a Russian station. The tension led me at one point to involuntarily hold my breath in suspense, and the special effects are overwhelming – the tear floating off Ryan’s face is a jewel. Clooney, who has mastered debonair humility,

even in a NASA bubble suit, is… well, he’s George Clooney and we love him for it, but Bullock, as the central character, carries the weight of the message. Her performance is stunning, from the moment she is set adrift to when she drags herself ashore in the quasi-religious finale, re-born from the egg of her capsule. To understand that, even with our ever-multiplying apps and gizmos, we are no different from prehistoric amphibians is a profound and liberating irony. Fantastic. ~ John Campbell

pulled off the near-miraculous feat of making possibly the world’s most boring sport totally absorbing. So if you are of the opinion that Grand Prix racing is an enormous wank, try to bury your prejudice for the screening of this ripper movie. England’s James Hunt (Chris Hemsworth, yet another

grad from the Australian soapies) and Austria’s Niki Lauda (Daniel Brühl) were Formula 1 world champions in the seventies. Though both from conservative backgrounds, their natures were opposite in the extreme. Handsome, blond Hunt was all ‘sex and drugs and rock’n’roll’, whereas Lauda, smaller and less physically imposing, was the precise, no-nonsense perfectionist who found contentment in a loving relationship with wife Marlene (the beautiful Alexandra Maria Lara). Their intense professional rivalry and personal enmity underpin what is a simple but timeless story. It begins, unusually, with each

man introducing himself through a voice-over on the morning of the fateful German Grand Prix at Nürburgring, 1976. It is a peculiar technique and it gives to proceedings a sad and retrospective fatalism. Lauda goes so far as to allude to what is about to happen later that day. As is Howard’s way, the approach is tabloid to start with, but subtler tensions and deeper understandings are eventually eked out. Hair and costume design is strictly authentic (embarrassingly so for some of us – check out the Italian guys who give Niki and Marlene a lift), crowd scenes are expertly

Rush When a director as singular in vision and equally direct in expressing it as Ron Howard collaborates with a screenwriter as succinct as Paul Morgan, the result is bound to be engaging in its narrative and insightful in the manner in which it deals with its subjects. In combination, the pair has

handled, archival footage is virtually seamless and, given the unavoidability of featuring screaming cars, the rev element is kept to within easily bearable

portions. Honour is never far below the surface in any good sports flick and it crosses the line here with belated poignancy. ~ John Campbell

Blanchett pushes the envelope to an uncomfortable degree in her best part for a ages, but equally good are Hawkins and

Cannavale – as a spindly little bird and bull in a china shop, they are perfectly matched. ~ John Campbell

Woody Allen’s later movies are proving to be predictably erratic. His last, set in Rome, was a dismal affair, but the one preceding it, in Paris, was sublime. As for Barcelona… well, let’s just not go there. Back on home soil, he has this time delivered what might come to be regarded as a signature work – when he’s good he’s great, and this is vintage. As an artist who has maintained an affectionate high regard for his predecessors, Allen enjoys nothing better than to re-invent seminal characters from cinema’s past. Jasmine (Cate Blanchett) is a New York socialite who has fallen on hard times following the arrest and suicide of her wheeler-dealer husband, Hal (Alec Baldwin). On the turps, broke and going to pieces, she lobs at her halfsister’s cosy but downmarket flat in San Francisco. She imposes herself regally on Ginger (Sally Hawkins), whose marriage was a victim of Hal’s

skullduggery, and comes between her and her rowdy, roughhouse boyfriend Chili (Bobby Cannavale) – it is Blanche Dubois, Stella and Stanley Kowalski all over again. Unusually for Allen, the story’s structure includes a high number of time jumps that take us from the present to when Hal and Jasmine were major players on Wall Street and Park Avenue. The transitions are handled smoothly and an easy rhythm is established early and maintained throughout. Jasmine is not easy to like – she is far too deluded and judgmental – which makes it difficult to feel sympathy for her. Damaged people need special treatment and Allen, you suspect, is pleading for forgiveness for Jasmine and in the last disturbing scene he very nearly wins it. But is there a limit to what we can we expect from or give to others? And how do we know when we’ve reached it?

st elmo dining room & bar

St Elmo is a place where you can enjoy great company, first-class food, sophisticated cocktails and an extensive wine list. St Elmo is plating up modern Spanish cuisine Mon-Sat: 4pm till late Sun: Lunch & dinner 12-10pm to be enjoyed amongst friends and family. Our menus change regularly and feature daily specials. Cnr Fletcher St and Lawson SUNDAYS we have live music and $10 cocktails Lane, Byron Bay 1.30pmâ&#x20AC;&#x201C;4pm. 6680 7426

Reminiscent of the chic back lane Melbourne tapas bar scene, St Elmo and its sophisticated menu and wine list is a favourite among locals and visitors in Byron Bay. A family connection and a love of restaurant culture brought owners Angela Honeywell and Tom Scholley to Byron Bay in search of a change from life in Sydney. With busy lives in retail and publishing their search always had to include new jobs and their opportunity appeared two years ago. â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;When we saw St Elmo was for sale, we thought weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d get involved behind the scenes and just jumped right in the deep end,â&#x20AC;&#x2122; says Angela. Known for its rich menu of Spanish delights, wine list, cocktails and Sunday afternoon St Elmo Social Club, the dining room and bar has become a local epicurean hangout. Along with head chef, Craig McFarland, Angela and Tom â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;decided to completely embrace Spanish cuisine and make our menu tapas and share dishes â&#x20AC;&#x201C; just how they do it in Spain. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the best way to eat â&#x20AC;&#x201C; ordering lots of smaller dishes to share on the table. That way you get to try so much more.â&#x20AC;&#x2122; Angela works front-of-house where she loves the feedback from customers that keeps her smiling and inspired. Sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the first to admit that her strength in St Elmoâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s is not in the kitchen but looking after her customers. â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;The best advice Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve had from the kitchen is to stay out! â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Working in hospitality you get to meet so many amazing people from all over the world, so itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s nice to be able to show them a good time at St Elmo. We also have loved getting to know all of our local regular customers.â&#x20AC;&#x2122; With a menu short enough to absorb but long enough to excite the palate with every titillating titbit on offer itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s always interesting to find out what diners love. At St Elmo the most popular dish on the menu is the Carriller De Vaca â&#x20AC;&#x201C; a slow-cooked beef cheek in caramelised red wine with cauliflower puree and fried breadcumbs.

OCUS

Angela on the other hand is treated to constant delicacies appearing out of the kitchen for tasting. â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;I canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t go past the Boquerones â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Spanish white anchovies that we serve with some chargrilled bread and a fennel, caper and parsley salad.â&#x20AC;&#x2122; She recommends them with a glass of Spanish Fino sherry.

Angela admits to a dessert favourite too â&#x20AC;&#x201C; the Cappuccino de Chocolat. â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;We have people coming in to try it with recommendations from around the globe. â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;We have a good mix of local customers as well as tourists. Obviously this changes during the busiest summer weeks when the locals seem to go into hiding. Our regular diners love that both our food and drinks menu change regularly so they never get bored with whatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s on offer. We can do almost any dish on our menu gluten free and over a third of our menu is vegetarian friendly.â&#x20AC;&#x2122; Locally based musicians are showcased at St Elmo Social Club on Sunday afternoons with the added lure of $10 cocktails. This week features singer Paolo Noiosi from funk reggae band Wandering Eyes â&#x20AC;&#x201C; just back from their North Queensland tour and performances at Mission Evolve Music Festival in Mission Beach.

Working Group, urging them to consider and respond to it at the earliest opportunity. ‘Holding ourselves responsible to specific targets is essential to mental health reform. These targets have come from the mental health sector and the wider community, backed up by experts,’ says Jack Heath, CEO of SANE Australia and a member of the Expert Reference Group. ‘They are ambitious targets but Australia can meet them. If we put our minds to it, we can have the best mental health services in the world within a decade. ‘Without a reduction in stigma, there will be no lasting progress in mental health reform. And with more than two thousand Australians taking their own lives every year, we ask Ministers Dutton and Wooldridge to lead COAG in committing to halving Australia’s suicide rate over the next ten years.’ The full report is available at http://bit.ly/xhreport.

UPSKILL and GET CREATIVE!

An Expert Reference Group on Mental Health Reform has presented a six-point plan to new federal health minister Peter Dutton, providing him with an early opportunity to take a leadership role in mental health reform. A key recommendation is to reduce Australia’s suicide rate by 10 per cent within four years, and by 50 per cent within ten years. As well as measures to improve mental health services and reduce rates of suicide, targets and indicators are given to promote a meaningful, contributing life for people affected by mental illness, including greater participation in the workforce. Targets are also set to reduce stigma against those living with mental illness by 25 per cent within ten years. The chair of the Expert Reference Group, Allan Fels, has presented the report to Minister Dutton and Victorian mental health minister, Mary Woodridge, as co-chairs of the COAG Mental Health Reform

NSW minister for fair trading Anthony Roberts said on Monday a range of synthetic drugs has now been outlawed under new legislation. ‘There is no silver bullet to protect people from the scourge of these psychoactive substances, but the NSW government now has groundbreaking laws in place which will continue to make a significant impact,’ Mr Roberts said in a media release. The amendments to the Drug Misuse and Trafficking Act 1985 (DMTA) make it an offence to possess, manufacture, supply, or advertise psychoactive substances, with penalties of $2,200 or two years’ imprisonment. The DMTA has also been amended to make it an offence to possess, supply, or manufacture substances listed in Schedule 9 of the Commonwealth Poisons Standard. Applicable penalties range from $2,200 or 12 months’ imprisonment for possession and $2,200 or two years’ imprisonment for supply and manufacture offences. In addition, 45 new substances, which consist mainly of synthetic cannabinoids, cathinone analogues and synthetic phenethylamines, are now considered prohibited drugs after being added to Schedule 1 of the DMTA on 27 September 2013. Police minister Michael Gallacher said that under the legislation it is also an offence to manufacture, supply or advertise any psychoactive substance for sale for human consumption. ‘These substances are dangerous and the new

legislation has been created by the NSW government in close consultation with the NSW Police Force, Fair Trading, the Attorney-General’s Department and NSW Health,’ Mr Gallacher said. New psychoactive substances which appear on the market can be prohibited under the new offences and a penalty of up to two years’ imprisonment will apply to their sale and manufacture. Once a substance has been identified and concerns relating to its misuse, health risks and any criminal activity associated with the substance have been considered, it can be specifically included in Schedule 1 of the Drug Misuse and Trafficking Act. Minister for mental health Kevin Humphries said synthetic drugs in all their forms represent a real danger to people’s safety and wellbeing and have been known to lead to serious injury, illness and in some instances death. ‘Synthetic drugs are just as, or more, dangerous than other illicit drugs. It is not known what drugs or ingredients have been used and in what quantities to create each new version,’ Mr Humphries said. ‘These products can contain untested chemicals, with unknown toxicity and potential for addiction and adverse reaction. They pose an extreme risk to the user, who has no way of knowing what experimental chemicals they are taking.’ More information can be found at: www.police.nsw.gov. au/syntheticdrugs.

Diary of a league junkie whose team didn’t make it John Campbell

On Thursday, July 25, the South Sydney Rabbitohs were at the top of the NRL ladder. Those in the famous Cardinal and Myrtle jersey were a band of brothers – literally, their ranks included four Burgesses from West Yorkshire, two of whom were gigantic twins – and they’d been storming through the comp. If ever the club’s premiership drought, stretching back to 1971, was going to be broken, it was now. Like a lot of Bunnies tragics, I had a rush of blood to the head and went online to purchase a couple of grand final tickets, at $225 each – and they weren’t the most expensive.   My old buddy and fellow lifelong supporter, Washington Minor, was less than gruntled. ‘What if they don’t make it that far?’ I convinced him that this season there was no stopping the boys. ‘Jeez mate, I hope you’re right.’ We’d done exactly the same thing last year. Jumped the gun, only to watch from our nose-bleed seats high in Sydney’s Olympic Stadium as Melbourne Storm took apart the odious Canterbury Bulldogs after the Bunnies had been eliminated the week before. But we didn’t talk about that – to do so would have Jonah’d our chances for sure. History could not repeat itself … could it? On Friday, September 27, the Manly-Warringah Sea Eagles unceremoniously put the boot into our dreams with a 30–20 victory over Souths in the first Preliminary Final. The phone rang barely two minutes after the full-time siren. ‘Hey mate … ‘ It was Washington Minor. I think ‘peeved’ is the word that would have best described his tone. We ummed and ahhed about selling our tickets. ‘Have you ever done anything on eBay?’ ‘Nah.’

‘Me either.’ This is a classic example of how both of us live in the past. And I’d suggest it’s typical of the silver tsunami of ageing Rabbitoh fans. We still talk about Johnny Sattler’s broken jaw as if it were somehow relevant. Rusty Crowe, despite George Piggins’s dummy-spit, has at least brought the organisation kicking and screaming into the twenty-first century. Sadly, on the day that matters most, our participation was yet again not called for. ‘Should be a good game though.’ ‘Yeah. And it is a grandfinal, after all.’ ‘Who’ll we barrack for? Easts or Manly?’ ‘I couldn’t give a rat’s.’ I had to agree with Minor on that last point.    We’d probably not determine who we were going to favour until after sussing out the mood of the night and deciding which team we hated least. But there was something I was absolutely sure of – if I had to read one more sentence about Sonny Bill Williams I’d puke. On Saturday morning, October 5, I am in the Wellington Bakery on Bondi Road. Some clown on commercial radio is spruiking the game big-time, going ga-ga about Sonny Bill Williams. I go into a brainfade. Apart from the Maori garbo I saw wearing a Roosters cap, I cannot detect any whiff of grand-final fever in the air – but the bagels smell good.

WE NEED YOU All welcome, members, players & supporters

36 October 8, 2013 The Byron Shire Echo

On Sunday, October 6, I meet Minor at Abdul’s in Cleveland Street for a Leb feed before making the trek along Parramatta Road. ‘You know One Direction’s on out there too?’ ‘The boy band?’ ‘They might have a spot for Sonny Bill.’ At 4pm we find ourselves in seats 10 and 11 of row 19 on the south-eastern side of the Stadium. The Under-20s grand-final between Penrith and the Warriors does nothing to enliven the atmos, and it’s baking hot. It cools as the sun starts to drop behind the massive concrete arc opposite. Jessica

Mauboy turns it on – I’ve no idea what the song is, but she looks a million bucks in her tight yellow dress. The crowd is now woken from its slumber. Ricky Martin nails it with his routine and suddenly the vibe is electric. Artie Summons and Norm Provan make their annual appearance with what must be sport’s ugliest trophy and as the bank of floodlights starts to kick in we are all on the edges of our seats. The pre-kick-off noise is with the mob from across the Bridge. Roosters supporters, who take out travel insurance to venture any further west than Moore Park, are slow to

find voice. There are hundreds of Souths fans, stuck with tickets they couldn’t offload. The Sea Eagles start with precision, power and a sense of adventure. Their outside backs are murdering the Roosters, who look like an outfit that has only played one tough game in the last three weeks and is having trouble adjusting to the intensity and pace of their opponent. In the blink of an eye it’s half-time. Easts are ahead 8–6, but they were sluggish out of the blocks and the refs have been kind to them. After an encouraging start,

Manly fall away in the second forty as possession and penalties flow against them. The movement that produced the game-breaking try to Shaun Kenny-Dowall included a pass that looked a yard forward to us – if it happened against the Bunnies we’d have gone troppo. At full-time, Easts are deserving winners of a fab game of footy. At 10.30pm, Minor drops me off at Bondi Road, where there’s a lot of hootin’ and hollerin’ going on. ‘We’ll do it again next year?’ ‘You bet. And Souths’ll be there for sure.’

Bruns Bees place third in Oceania Cup Gary Osbiston

The Oceania cup was held in Astonville over last weekend. The Brunswick Bees, formerly known as Bruns Babes Girls 13s, entered. We could only gather 10 players because of school holidays. This was a round robin in groups.   On Saturday, the girls’ first game, we lost 2–0 they were very rusty but improved as the game progressed. The second game they tried their best but played a very good Alstonville side which had three subs on high rotation, which finally took its toll on the Bruns team. Sunday, another game. The girls were sore and mus-

cles tight and bruised. They fought out a tough 0–0 draw. But they had made it to the 3–4 play-off game. The girls had a two hour break, which was great for their tired bodies. For the play off-game the coach made a tactical change – goalkeeper Zoė as striker and midfielder Lily in goals. Coach explained to the team to give all they had for first 15 minutes and attack the opposition as Zoė is unwell. The girls followed the instructions perfectly. The goalkeeper-turned-striker found the net 1–0. Within the next few minutes she had hit the crossbar and saved a shot on the line. The team

Byron Bay Little Athletics 2013/14 SEASON SIGN ON

were playing their best game, short one player and dominating. The Bruns forward line was playing in perfect harmony, then another attacking move found Tiare in front of goals, she cooly slotted the ball home 2–0. This was the half-time score. The girls were looking very tired and hot; the game was played in 31 degrees heat. Lily back on the field, who had a great first half in goals, made a few fine saves. The coach spoke to the girls it will be tough in the second half, absorb their pressure and play counter-attack. Alstonville attacked from the restart. The Bruns girls were struggling but they survived the first 10 minutes of the second half. The girls needed some-

thing to happen – and it did. Bracie found herself with the ball at the halfway line. Coach called out ‘go for a run’ and she did – dribbling past defenders into the penalty area, she steadied herself and blasted the ball into the back of the net 3–0 her first goal of the season and an important one. Coach had never seen the team so exhausted but they never gave in. Another counter-attack found Tiare   in open space in the penalty area and who squeezed a shot past the goalkeeper 4–0. The final whistle sounded – the girls claimed third place.  Well done! Coach and parents were so proud.  Bruns Bees team: Capt   Julia, Zoe, Xyanna, Tess, Romany, Bracie, Lily, Tiare, Mirrabel, Kara.

NSW govt looks at reforms to home building NSW fair trading minister Anthony Roberts has released a position paper setting out reforms to the Home Building Act 1989. ‘The current Act has become too complex and unclear with endless disputes between homeowners and builders,’ Mr Roberts said. The proposed reforms cover various aspects of the home building legislation including dispute resolution, statutory warranties, home building contracts, owner-builders’ obligations, home warranty insurance and licensing. According to the minister, the proposed reforms will: • ensure the level of regulation of home building contracts is equal to the associated risks • provide greater clarity about the rights and obligations that flow

the promises of income and capital growth has added another vital area where people should be extremely careful of purchasing a property without an inspection and undertaking due diligence on all aspects of the purchase. ‘Apart from the property inspection of the condition of the property, home buyers also need to assess the renovation potential of the property to ensure it can be renovated to provide a good return when it is finally sold. Unfortunately many people invest in property to secure their financial future without a planned strategy or any idea of the cost of renovating their home or investment property. ‘With an ageing population many of today’s baby boomers are purchasing homes to renovate and live in with a view to

gaining capital on the resale when they move to smaller or assisted accommodation in their later years. ‘For this group of home buyers and renovators the success of the renovation can have a major impact on their financial future. ‘People actually devalue their investments with poorly conceived designs or inappropriate materials, providing a negative cash flow for the investment and poor re-selling options.’ Mr Frazer said the bottom line for home buyers is that a thorough pre-purchase property inspection can actually save money as knowing the condition of the property can often provide a bargaining point with the vendors. The pre-purchase inspection also provides a person purchasing an investment property to renovate with a guide to the feasibility of the project. See more at www.archicentre.com.au.

Backlash FREE SWIM ASSESSMENT when you mention this ad

Mandy Nolan launches into the titty bar approval for Byron Bay this week – see her Soapbox in Seven. We think her call for a male bottomless bar doesn’t go far enough in exploring the fetishes of those desperate for titillation. An Amputee Plushie Bar would really put Byron Bay on the map. (A PG-rated introduction to plushiephilia, sometimes known as furry fandom, is available at Dr Mark Griffiths’s blog: http://bit.ly/ furries1.) QQQQ

The ongoing push to get CSG mining going at full throttle leads Backlash to think the Nationals are getting screwed by their coalition partners at the state and federal levels. The state government’s new ‘assessment process’ for CSG proposals will involve a panel of scientists, engineers and groundwater experts but the NSW Farmers Association (NSWFA) points out that there seems no way for the panel to reject proposals, only modify them. One would then assume that an expert prepared to sit on a panel would be fairly compliant to the CSG agenda. Naturally the Australian Industry Group chief Innes Willox has lamented the ‘restrictive elements’ of the new regulations so the state government can look like it hasn’t caved in to its mates in big business. You can bet that federal resources minister Ian Macfarlane will introduce legislation to overrule the NSW ‘safeguards’ and Barry O’Farrell will be able to throw up his hands in horror and say ‘we gave it our best shot’.

Journalists always get a lot of commentary on their work,

Emergency department staff at Byron Bay Hospital help stabilise another furry funster flipped out by the freakiness at the Amputee Plushie Bar (see first Backlash). A spokesperson for the Last Stuffed Toys At 12 group called on local plushie bars to take a more responsible attitude in order to lessen the incidents of biting, scratching and pillow fighting. Inspector Ted Heffalump of the Outlaw Teddy Bear Club Squad said police would do everything in their power to deal with late-night winsomeness.

some it actually favourable. If you want to know how hacks categorise it, it’s hard to go past ‘The twelve types of people you find in news website comments’ at http://bit. ly/12typesof. Not that we’re suggesting that any of our readers would fit into these categorisations. Oh no.

Backlash, who is fond of chickens (in a healthy sort of way), is pleased to read that Woolworths is phasing out eggs from caged hens at its stores by 2018. We don’t have to wait until then. There are plenty of local suppliers with free-range chooks; just ask at your local supermarket, greengrocers or farmers market, or maybe even check if your neighbour with chickens is prepared to sell or barter. If you need to know more about the harm done unnecessarily to animals in order that we might have something to eat, then check out Animals Australia www.animalsaustralia. org.
